We finally have the answer to the "Burn Ban" question. YES, it has been lifted! Rules are: burn piles should be no bigger than 4 feet by 4 feet at the base, natural vegetation only, no construction debris, old furniture, house hold garbage, etc., and should not be left unsupervised.
Two council positions open for election at the November council meeting. Darla Brashers and Mike Sayler are running for re-election for these two positions. (By-Laws state that elections must be advertised for 60 days.)
Remember Twin Bridges Museum is open Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m. during October and November and has welcomed visitors each night it was open. Many have enjoyed the exhibit on loan from Maryhill and the museum displays. The museum may also be open by appointment by calling 365-0060 and making arrangement.
Watch for posters advertising a huge bazaar that will be held in the building at Columbia Hills R.V. Park, in December. Many area residents will have tables with their arts and crafts for sale just in time for the holidays. Can you believe that time of year is almost upon us again?
From The Dalles Optimist -- Mid Columbian (Aug 18, 1966): Writer Tells Of 'Miracle' That Spared Town From Flames -- "In The Dalles, the Salvation Army announced its readiness to aid the community with food and other services should the need arise. Devote persons prayed. School busses stood by."
"The flames ate their way westward into the wind. Two abandoned shacks, standing empty on the edge of a dry field caught fire and burned to the ground in minutes."
"Ahead of the fire was the Lyle Senior High School, the Dell Kendrick residence, the trailer home of the Superintendent, George Goodman and the entire northern one-half of the village."
"Fire trucks were on guard at the high school."
"Along the north side of the highway the growth was greener, but the fire did not seem to mind. A sign reading 'Welcome to Lyle' on its eastern face was in its path. On its western exposure the sign said: 'We like Lyle -- Hope You Do, Too.' The sign was spared."
