Just a friendly reminder for you to not put off marking that ballot and getting it either mailed or dropped off at the Lion's Club. A drop off box is posted there for your convenience and to save on postage. Voting is not only a right, it is a privilege and perhaps even a duty when brought to mind all of the sacrifices others have made in order that we may do so without fear of persecution.
The local Pretenders Theatre Company is presenting "All My Murders" at the Columbia Grange Hall this November on the 5th, 6th, 12th and 13th. It is a Murder Mystery Dinner presentation that might include some audience member's participation -- on stage -- while everyone will act as detectives in solving the mystery! Tickets are available at Klindt's Book Store, Lyle Country Cafe and Beneventi's Restaurant. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and show starts at 7.
The Lyle Activity Center, located at 308 3rd St., now boasts of a strong WiFi system that has recently been installed for any and all who wish to use it free of charge. It is throughout the building and can even be reached while sitting nearby outside. It's a venue where one is able to visit the web while watching the children at play. Multitasking is the cake, free is the frosting.
Also at the Lyle Activity Center this year's Annual Holiday Bazaar will be held on Nov. 12 and 13. Spaces are limited so be sure to call Laurece Bonham, 365-2011, or Sandy Doolin, 365-3140, if you wish to show your wares. Homemade gifts for that hard-to-please-person on your Christmas list can be found at reasonable prices.
The Lyle Hotel is now sporting a new name for its restaurant. "Two Winds" was inspired by the Native Americans that called Lyle's point "A place where winds blow in both directions." The restaurant has formed a Supper Club which will dine family style every Second Sunday starting on Nov. 14. Give them a call for reservations.
As is our legal obligation, we continue to post, that the Lyle Community Council Elections will be held at its November meeting -- Position 1, Darla Brashers; and Position 2, Oren Johnson; both have accepted to run for re-election.
Excerpts from the book: "Early History of Klickitat County" copyright by Jim Attwell 1977. "Chapter Four -- In Rowland Saga: When we lived on Curtis mountain father farmed and milked cows. Times were good then. The country was full of wild game. There were bear and deer and you could catch all the trout you wanted. Salmon, too. Of course we had coyotes and wild cats, lynx and cougar, but they only made life more exciting."
An old farmer's advice: "Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a Rain Dance."
