Careful with fireworks in town


Although the Lions Club First Saturday breakfast is still on as usual, they would like the public to know that due to it landing on the Fourth of July, there will be no Senior Meals on that Tuesday. That just means there will be more visiting and news to share with your neighbors the following week.

So far a handful of individuals have met to determine whether there is a need for the Lyle Community Council to be revived. Other same minded persons that are interested in its revival are to meet at Lyle Secondary School on Monday June 26 at 4 p.m..

Whether a buyer or a seller be: those who have been waiting all year for the 13th annual Art & Wine Fusion held in White Salmon, your wait is almost over. With a few changes: on Saturday, July 22, from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. the fair is moving to a larger, cooler and more comfortable setting in nearby Rheingarten Park. Starting an hour earlier than last year gives everyone more time to enjoy the fantastic music, good food, juried vendors, artists, exhibitors, and great wines, The earlier start, cool grass, big shade trees, options for electric power, a relaxed set-up and take-down for vendors, and a lot of new activities will give everyone a richer, more comfortable experience. This is a fun, laid-back, summer festival with a comfortable small town feel that draw large crowds and vendors reporting good sales. Contact

With the Fourth of July rapidly approaching, I have yet another personal rant. I am just as patriotic as the next guy, and I enjoy the sight and sound of great fireworks. But I do not approve of inter city (community) fireworks where homes and properties can be in danger. There are designated, safer places for this activity and by calling your local Sheriff or Fire Dept. you can join others and enjoy a more diverse array. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize the danger of setting them off on city streets or near fields of dry grass.
