A big thank you goes out to Oren Johnson; have you noticed both Lyle Welcome Signs have been mowed around and the areas spruced up? Oren recently spent most of one day doing this.
Thirteen members of the local Sundowners RV Club met for lunch Sunday at Spooky's. No meeting was held but all enjoyed socializing.
Lyle Community Council will hold its meeting on Monday, Nov. 22, at 7 p.m. at the Lyle Lion's Club. The EDA department is supposedly to be on hand to discuss the up coming grant cycle and the Washington Department of Transportation is also supposedly to be on hand to discuss the speed limit through Lyle. Because there was no one running against the council incumbents and the by-laws don't allow write-ins, the council will eliminate holding elections at this meeting.
The annual Dallesport Bazaar will be Dec. 3 and 4 and will be held at the Columbia Hills Log Building. It is hosted by the Dallesport Community Council and Fire Department. The hours are going to be from 9-4 and if you need information call Alice Mattox at 509-767-4077.
Mark your calendar for Dec. 12 from 2 to 5 p.m. Put on your dancin' shoes and come cut a rug at The Lyle Activity Center. "Martin and Friends" will be playing for your enjoyment and the OLESS will sell goodies as a fundraiser for the building. Dancing and listening is FREE.
Excerpts from the book: "Early History of Klickitat County" copyright Jim Attwell 1977. Chapter Four -- In Rowland Saga. "Honest Men: The idea was then they would have their things to take with them to the Happy Hunting Grounds. If it happened to be a fine horse the Indian had value (d), the horse was shot and taken to Memaloose with his dead master."
"We never went on the windward side of the island if we could help it. The stench of the dead was terrific. But there were lots of interesting things to be seen on Memaloose; old flintlock muskets, gold pieces, beads and many other things. But there was always that awful smell and hundreds of skulls staring out of empty eyes."
The greatness of humanity is not in being human, but in being humane.
