The sounds of summer are coming? I heard the first lawnmower the other evening.

Clean-up time is here! This Friday, April 10, and Saturday, April 11, is the 12th annual "Lyle Clean-Up Days." This is your opportunity to get rid of unwanted trash, all around town, at no charge. As usual the dumpsters will be at the school bus garage on State Route 14.

A new addition this year will be a raffle of prizes donated by local merchants, with tickets that you will drop off at the Twin Bridges Museum. This will give you an opportunity to see the history on display there. Again, the council is hosting the clean-up and will accept any monetary donations for future community projects.

Sunday is Easter and all are invited to share in worship services at either of the community churches.

Lyle Secondary School's "After School Adventure Program" will be having a student-parent activity night on April 16. The event will run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served. The special guest, Mr. Bill Kring, is a math specialist with ESD 112. Mr. Kring will be showing the students and parents many different ways to work with math, and games that are associated with it. These lessons will enable your child to better understand today's math and help them in their future educational endeavors. The school hopes to see you there, on April 16, for an exciting night of student-parent activities!

Excerpts from the book: "Early History of Klickitat County," copyright: Jim Attwell 1977: "By 1879, according to the Spokane Times, there were six postoffices in the county representing as many settlements -- Goldendale, Columbus, Blockhouse, Klickitat Landing, White Salmon and Fulda."

"In 1879 the assessed valuation of real estate for the entire county was only $152,383. As yet but a small portion of the land was deeded, the major portion being still in the hands of the government, and for that reason most of the assessable property in the county was personal. The population had by this time grown to more than three thousand, an increase of about four hundred percent in six years."

Ever wonder...Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?
