We wish to extend a "Happy Thanksgiving" to each and everyone of our readers!

A note of appreciation goes out to all those who helped with the Lyle Annual Holiday Bazaar. Once again it was a success that all seemed to enjoy. The hosts wished to send a big "thank you" to all. The proceeds from, the table reservations was again donated to the OLESS to support the Lyle Activity Center.

A proud grandmother gets to brag: Madison Wood has qualified to run the 3K at the Junior Olympic completion in Hoover, Ala., on Dec. 11. No, I won't get to go along to this race but you can bet I'll still be cheering her on. Barbara

The Dallesport Bazaar will be Dec. 3 and 4 at the Columbia Hills Log Building. The hours are from 9 to 4. If you need more information contact Alice Mattox at 509-767-4077. The Dallesport Community Council and Fire Department are hosting the bazaar.

Put on your dancin' shoes and come cut a rug at The Lyle Activity Center, on Dec. 12 from 2 to 5 p.m. "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 by Jim Attwell 1977; Chapter Four -- In Rowland Saga. "Quite a large party of folks got off the river steamers. They let down a coffin. In it was the body of Victor Trivett an old time Columbia River captain. His last request was to be buried on Memaloose Island with the Indians. He considered them the most honest people in the world."

"The party from the steamers built a vault of basalt rock and concrete and put Victor Trivett's body in it. They put an eight foot stone monument on the top of the vault. the inscription on it read: 'Here he lies among honest men'. You can see the monument to this day from the Evergreen Highway just after you pass Major Creek."

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, there will be peace. Anonymous
