Gorge Networks is now offering higher internet speeds for Lyle. Between passing emails and a telephone interview, a Gorge Network representative explained the new set up as follows:

“The Wifi at (inside) the Activity Center is still free to the public. We have just installed a new wireless access point which gives the residents a higher speed connection than they previously enjoyed. We can now get people up to 3Mb (megabites) broadband internet where we were only getting 1.5 Mb before; so twice as fast. We just want residents of Lyle to know that this is an option for them if they are interested in faster internet for video streaming, gaming, etc. A recent tower upgrade means residents in downtown Lyle (One block north of Hwy. 14 and all areas south of Hwy. 14) and Rowena can now get this upgrade. The new site is west of Rowena and Lyle on the Washington side of the river, so if you have a view in that direction, please give our sales department a call to get started, (541) 386-8300 ext. 301.”

The Lyle-Balch Cemetery was buzzing with worker bees on Saturday. Although this year the clean up was scheduled a week earlier than usual, many turned out and cleaned their family plots. From one end to the other workers joined forces and took on the challenge of a year’s accumulation of leaves, pine cones and needles from the many trees inside the cemetery. Old flower arrangements were replaced with new ones in hopes that Memorial Day visitors will find it as clean and green as possible. Those unable to join the group will find personal time to honor their loved ones resting place before then.

A First Aid/CPR class is being offered at the Activity Center on May 19, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Please contact Risi Howard at

This month’s Lyle Community Council meeting normally held on the fourth Monday each month has been canceled due to a lack of quorum because of a vacationing board member.
