Visitors to Mildred's are her brother Edward Lykens and his wife Jan from Tennessee. They were unable to be here in time for Larry Sorensen's funeral but have been visiting with sisters Mildred and Mary for several days. It is fun to hear stories Edward has to share of his growing up in Lyle.
Speakers at the council meeting last week were Tim O'Neill our prosecuting attorney, Craig Juris, the chief criminal deputy prosecutor and Eric Warren, supervisor of child protective services in Klickitat County. Warren spoke on the "Child in Crisis Center" that is being planned for Lyle; O'Neill and Juris came to answer any questions the citizens of Lyle might have of the prosecutor's office. Questions varied from missing dogs, burglary, NSF checks, meth abuse, counterfeit bills, evicting renters, child abuse, selling liquor to obviously intoxicated customers, to autopsies. It was also noted that a new prosecutor David Quesnell has been hired. It was a very interesting meeting.

Early history of the Lyle area (author unknown) -- "Oct. 28, 1805 with their canoes loaded they set off about 9 a.m.. They had already found that the Indians at Celilo Falls had muskets, swords and several brass tea kettles. Coastal Indians must have traded from the ships passing up the Pacific Coast. Through trade with other Indians three metal objects reached the Indians in the interior."
"Three Indian villages were encountered from The Dalles to the Klickitat River. The expedition was given berries, hazel nuts, pounded fish and bread made from roots."
