New camp grounds discovered by the local Sundowners RV Club! This past weekend found seven rigs and numerous vehicles (with drivers) rolling in and out at Timber Lake R.V. Park, located about 2 miles above Home Valley. All loved the new grounds and have already made reservations for next year.

Thanks to many local residents for their numerous "new" historical contributions to the Twin Bridges Museum. Many of these will be on display at the mseum's Open House on July 20 at 7 p. m. Hope to see you all there for a fun night of reminiscing.

The Lyle Community Council and interested volunteers are planning to begin the process of updating the Comprehensive Plan for Lyle this fall. This will involve several meetings with input from the local residents and businesses. When you see the dates posted PLEASE plan to attend and present your wishes and ideas for Lyle's future. For example, What businesses would you like to see added to Lyle? How can we encourage the tourist trade? How can we accommodate the Kite Boarding crowd? Do you want an RV Park in Lyle, etc.? Curt Dreyer from the County Planning Department will help facilitate.

Excerpts from Washington Historical Quarterly (date unknown): "The wise provision of the founders of the school system in Washington, whereby transportation and school funds are provided for isolated communities, makes it possible for every child to secure a common school education. Many of the districts teach one or more grades of the High School, and where the population is sufficient High Schools are established."

"The cost of marketing their wheat was a great handicap until a railroad was built from Goldendale to the Columbia with its southern terminus at Lyle. The building of numerous highways and bridges is rapidly developing the latent resources of the county and opening its scenic attractions to the world." Delia M. Coon.

Some minds are like concrete thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.
