Many phone calls brought no answers to our question: "Has the burn ban been lifted for Lyle?" Yes, the county has lifted it but can't say for sure that Lyle Fire Department has. So our suggestion is call before you burn!
Sundowners News: Three rigs from the Sundowners attended the State meeting at Cashmere. Good food, friends and fun. Beanbag baseball was played and the guys did the wacky golf tournament. They had fun but didn't come out the winners this time.
After the meeting they joined with the Section Eight RV Club at the Yakima RV Park. The crowd was smaller than usual this year but all had a good time. Jean Brashers did an excellent job in initiating a new couple and afterwards root beer floats were served. On Tuesday some toured the Yakima Valley and some tried their luck at the casino, with all heading home on Wednesday morning.
Don't forget Twin Bridges Museum is open Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 -8 for October and November so that all can enjoy the display on loan from Maryhill Museum. It can also be open by appointment. Call 365-0060 to make arrangements to see the display at other times.
Thank you, Dean Oldenburg, for your neighborly kindness in helping the foster home dispose of leaves and yard debris. It is much appreciated.
Two council positions open for election at the November council meeting. Darla Brashers and Mike Saylor are running for re-election for these two positions. (By-Laws state that elections must be advertised for 60 days.)
From The Dalles Optimist, Mid Columbian (Aug 18, 1966): "The Yacolt burn fire near Cascade Locks, some 50 or 60 years ago, started in September the forester said. Frey went on to say that almost continual east winds had made forest areas on east slopes on the Coast range 'tender' dry, and fires are now burning in the old Tillamook burn and also the area near Coos Bay. (The end) A new version of this story starts next week."

Police were called to a daycare where a three-year-old was resisting a rest.
