Come be a role model for local youth


Just a reminder—KLASAC is hosting a Countywide Prevention Leadership meeting on Friday, Sept. 16 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Lyle Activity Center. If you want to be a positive role model for our local youth, you are urged to attend the discussion on how to strengthen their efforts at the county level. Also, please share this information with your neighbors or others you think may be interested—the Coalition is a relatively new organization (a couple of years old) that works closely with our youth to inspire and guide them through difficult years of peer pressure and to help them make right choices. They are working hard to get the word out to as many people as possible throughout the county! The kids have created an offspring of this, that they run themselves, by the name of TADA. (Teens Against Drugs & Alcohol). Rita Pinchot, the Coordinator states, “We are working to launch our KLASAC website and we need your help to make it happen! If you are interested in helping us design and put together the website with our ESD Marketing team please let me know asap!” Call: (360) 952-3569.

On that same Friday, the Lyle-Wishram-Klickitat Football team will host Goldendale in our first home football game! Certainly the 7 p.m. kickoff time is reason enough to venture to the Lyle Campus and support the Cougars. They’ll also be featuring the “Little Cougar Cheer Squad” made up of K-5 boys and girls who will be coming together to cheer and learn dance moves to elaborate our school. They’ll also be welcoming music back to Lyle and can expect a special treat as our third and fourth grade choir will open the game by performing our National Anthem. Just follow the paw tracks on the road way!

Then, on Saturday the 17th, also at 7 p.m., think about attending the “Pig Bowl.” It is a fundraiser with proceeds going to help two local families. It seems we have Oregon vs. Washington State Law Enforcement Officers squaring off at Wahtonka Football Field, 3601 West 10th Street in The Dalles. Let’s get out and cheer for our Washington officers. Admission is Single $3, Family: $10.

To all art enthusiasts; an urgent message needs to be shared: it has come to attention that the Executive Director of The Dalles Art Center’s Facebook has been hacked. The hacker is using her account to reach out to people heavily involved in the arts community and ask for money involving successful grant programs. At this time, her account has been deactivated. If you receive messages or friend requests from Carmen J. Toll, please do not reply and block the user. Call TDAC and let us know (541) 296-4759. What I’d like to know, and have never figured out, is why a person with as much talent as it takes to do these things will use it unlawfully instead of getting a nice job where their expertise would benefit mankind? Earning a living fills the soul with great positive satisfaction, so why jeopardize their soul for a few years here, only to lose it for eternity?
