Great News! Lyle's application was accepted to participate in the Horizons program along with Wishram and the Big River Native American Communities in Klickitat County! The first step in this process is to recruit and train Study Circle facilitators for the 18-month program.

This is going to be a very transformative process bringing opportunities to work together with concerned community members and guided by the support of WSU and the Northwest Area F.

Your participation in this stage of the program would be greatly appreciated. Facilitators will play a crucial role in leading the discussions during the two months of the Study Circle phase. Youth are encouraged to participate, so if you know of someone you would like to share this opportunity with, please forward on this information.

You are invited to join us for the training on Oct. 4 in Wishram. Gas vouchers, lunch, and childcare will be provided If you would like to attend or have any questions, please feel free to contact either: Lori Hull, (541) 993-4061,; Glenda Lovejoy, 365-3831,; or Teresa Wells, 365-0006,

There will be a town hall meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 14, at 7 p.m. at the Lions Club. Refreshments will be served. All are invited to have a freewheeling discussion on the community of Lyle and what it could look like in 20 years. Please being optimism. The goal of the meeting is to gain citizen input for the Comprehensive Plan, which will be submitted to the county. The Lyle Survey results will also be available.

Seven Lady Sundowners met and enjoyed the atmosphere of the Baldwin Saloon for lunch and female companionship. The menu choices met with approvals all around and the ladies are looking forward to their next luncheon at Crazy Pepper in Hood River in October.

The Song of the Rivers (a history of Lyle by Elizabeth McDowell): "V THE PRESENT LYLE -- Newcomers come occasionally and are received graciously, and some have settled here and remained. The ranchers and farmers of the surrounding area also keep some elements of trade in existence -- the grocery store, three service stations and garages, a farm equipment agency, a tavern, a cafe and from time to time a barber shop."

"Greater Lyle includes Appleton, Klickitat Heights, Hartland and High Prairie. Also, in some ways, it includes the Dallesport-Murdock communities, some of whose citizens shop in Lyle and attend Lyle churches. Lyle sends its younger children to the Dallesport Grade School. Glenwood to the north is also a part of Lyle, since many Lyle families are related by blood to Glenwood families. Claus Staack, the father of Muriel West, first settled in the Glenwood community in the earliest times. The Hathaways of Glenwood also have relatives in Lyle, and Frank Lyle, a descendent of James O. Lyle, now lives in Glenwood community."

Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
