THANK YOU! to the anonymous caller who alerted the police when they witnessed several youths breaking and entering into the old primary school building. Several windows were broken out and a few small items were stolen out of the museum's office. With quick response from Klickitat County deputies and the state patrol, the youth were apprehended in the act, placed in handcuffs and according to the officers they were on their way to "NORCOR." Thanks also to the authorities for the action taken! Maybe this will send a message that this community is WATCHING!
Just a reminder Saturday, March 7, is the Lyle Lyons Club First Saturday Breakfast. As usual the proceeds fund eyeglasses, hearing aides, scholarships, disaster relief, local improvement projects and emergency aid to families in need. Besides just being a great breakfast, it is an enjoyable time of visiting with family, friends and neighbors.
A correction for this article is that for a family of five the dinner price is $20 instead of the $12 stated last week. It is still the same wonderful dinner, and for a good cause. On March 13, the Grad Plus One groups' St. Patrick's Day Dinner will be held at the Lyle Lions Club from 5 to 8 p.m. Tickets will still be $8 per person. There will be a silent auction of several baskets of goodies donated for the alcohol and drug free party for the graduating seniors. Tickets are available at the Lyle Cafe, from any graduating senior, or call Diane at 365-3913.
From The Mt. Adams Sun (Jan 29, 1937 by George W. Wiley): "The first governor of the territory then, Isaac Stevens, knew of this great influx of settlers and immediately formed laws to aid in their protection and welfare. It is without a doubt that many of the incoming settlers had passed thru this district, not stopping here."
"The exact year William Meyers came to Lyle is not known, but is supposed to be about 1862 or 1863."
"Further land grants were made of the Chamberlain property. To Charles A. Schuster on July 30, 1874, was 160 acres, during the president administration of U.S. Grant."
"Charles A. Schuster in turn sold to A. G. Cook a newcomer. That was May 11, 1874. September of the same year Cook sold property to H.H. Gridley."
