Firefighters busy on the fourth


Both Lyle and High Prairie Fire Departments were called out to extinguish a fire at Lyle Point on the Fourth of July. Fire Chief David McCune reported, “Page out about 2230, Lyle and HP responded with one truck each and HP Command. The RP had the fire all bet out when Lyle and HP got to the point. Lyle and HP did mopup, for about one hour, to insure no rekindle. Size of fire was about 30 by 30 feet. The most likely cause was children playing with fire works.” Again I commend these diligent volunteers that give of their time and themselves for rushing in when everyone else is rushing out. Because of them we have survived another 4th of July’s fire threats…now we have the summer ahead and hopes that lightening will cooperate.

From the desk of Andrew Kelly, Lyle School Superintendent/Principal: Just wanted to share that an AA group, Success Through Sobriety, has started in Lyle. These meetings begin tonight, 7.5, and will meet weekly on Wednesdays and Sundays at 7pm in the Lyle School Library at 625 Keasey Avenue. For more information, interested parties can call 360-870-3321 or visit our FB page at This meeting is open to anyone who is pursuing sobriety and believes that choice will be beneficial in their lives and the lives of their families.

Rettai Bruni, Prevention/Intervention Specialist/Lyle Community Schools wants you to keep Aug. 1 from 4-8 p.m. open to enjoy the “National Night Out” celebration. The residents of Lyle and the surrounding communities will be gathering at the Lyle Community Park. The purpose of this exciting event is intended to encourage partnership with neighbors, safety officials, organizations and local businesses-all while having a blast together! This unique community event promotes residents’ involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, strengthening of neighborhood spirit as well as sending a message to criminals that crime is not welcome in our community! A great time was had by all last year and with everyone participating, this year's event is promising to be bigger and better! Plans are to have live music/talent/artists, various booths, face-painting, BBQ dinner, lawn/water games, etc. If you or someone you know would be able to contribute to this upcoming event (in any capacity) please contact. Any contributions and/or assistance in organizing this effort are welcome and would be greatly appreciated. We invite you to join the fun! Together we can continue to make Lyle a safe, secure and beautiful place to live!

Who do you call? About the stagnation of the “pond” on the Lyle side of the tunnels? I realize that water levels have diminished to the point where water is not flowing in and out anymore but the area looks to me to be a real health hazard, not to mention an eye sore to those passing through our great community.
