Time revive Community Council


September 6, 2017

Those seeking to revive the Lyle Community Council are reaching out to any and all that wish to participate. Their next meeting is on Sept. 25, at Lyle School’s multi-purpose room, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. A professional facilitator, Kristine Mier will be attending to assist this ongoing discussion. If you care about Lyle and believe our community can use a liaison between the residents and different government agencies and organizations plus the County Commissioners; then please, show your support by attending.

From the desk of Superintendent/Principal Andrew: “Lyle will open the 2017-18 school year with two vibrant and active preschool classrooms. Their pre-school is ECEAP licensed and also community self-pay. Their goal is to welcome each of the three and four-year-olds through the doors of Cougar Country so that each small scholar has all of the skills necessary to navigate kindergarten successfully. Parents, grandparents and community….we need you! We know that you are the first and best teacher of our kids. We are so thankful to you for trusting us with your most precious commodity and we want to partner with you for their success.” This is a very valuable start for your children, so contact Kelly at (509) 365-2191 at the school or on his cell at (360) 870-3321, email

Another familiar face around Lyle has crossed over. Rosemary Hop was found deceased in her home on Aug. 28. She was active in various Lyle activities and will be missed by those who knew her.

It’s getting that time of year that we have to start thinking of Christmas—I know, it’s hard to believe, but I have some good news for either a shopper or a vendor. The Lyle Annual Holiday Bazaar is just next month and the staff is searching for vendors that are interested in joining the team and solidifying a spot for your wares. Tables are $10 each or $15for two. Give the girls a call: Karen (541) 490-5673 or Laurece (509) 365-3011; you’ll be glad you did. This bazaar helps give the talented creators finances for their personal Christmas and you benefit by receiving those one-of-a-kind items, so treasured by those on Santa’s list.

Rumors have it that there has been a rash of break-ins around Lyle proper. I tried to contact the Sheriff’s Department but was sent to voice mail, and they never called me back. I was told that a pickup was stolen as well as articles from other vehicles and even businesses were broken into. Be aware folks, take precautions, there are bad people out there that want what you worked for, and they are lazy and want it for nothing.
