All Aboard! Are you interested in working in the "Community Garden?" Sheri Starkin says anyone interested should contact her at 360-608-5916 and that the work is beginning. This garden is also the "Senior Project" for four Lyle High School students. There may even be a farmers market in Lyle next summer.

Excerpts from the book "Early History of Klickitat County" (copyright Jim Attwell 1977): "Chapter Three -- Indians Chase Ira Rowland. When father came home to the empty cabin, he said 'What's going on here'?"
" Mother told him about the Indians coming back. She thought father wouldn't give up and leave Panakanic."
"'I don't care what you do'. she said firmly to father,' but if you won't go, I'm going anyway. And I'll take the children'."
"That was too much for father. He said he'd go."
