Business hours are changing


November 15, 2017

News Flash! The Country Café has new hours. They will be open seven days a week, but hours are shorter. Monday through Saturday the hours are 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Sunday 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dave stated that Rose also has a website, Country Café, where she posts a photograph of the daily special of whatever Dave decides. The menu will remain the same (Prime Rib each week) and of course the ambiance is always warm and welcome there—and personally I think they have the best fries in the Gorge.

The ever-name-changing facility across the street from the Country Café is again under new ownership. Randall and Mindy Robison are the proud proprietors and have changed the name to the Sandbar & Grill. Besides the name change, it has also seen interior renovating that establishes boundaries for children. They offer games and magazines for the family’s entertainment. We old Lylites have observed the bar’s title change many times over the years. To name a few: The Tap Room, River Rat, Corner Pocket, and way back when I was a child selling beer bottles (salvaged along the highway) it was called Curly’s (he was bald, and if I’m wrong about the name, phone calls will inform me). Cassie Beeks, Mindy’s assistant, stated they too are open seven days a week with no change in their menu. The hours are Monday through Friday 4 p.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday 2 p.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday 1 p.m. to 11 p.m.—but watch for a change to an earlier opening of 3 p.m. coming soon So, it appears, if hungry travelers arrive in Lyle between 2 and 3 p.m. they can still find hot deli items at the Lyle Merc.

The ladies of the Lyle Christmas Bazaar wish to thank all those who made it such a huge success. The dollars will go toward the building maintenance and rejuvenation.

Sunday morning, Pastor Les Haarstad of the Celebration Church in Lyle hosted a Veteran’s Day Celebration with patriotic songs sung by the congregation, accompanied on the piano by Phyllis (Nash) Scott. Her husband, Kenneth Scott, eulogized four Union Civil War veterans that are buried in the Lyle/Balch Cemetery. Roberta Tuthill read a poem she wrote about a Civil War soldier, claiming that when she wrote it his spirit was beside her and guided her words. Students from Lyle’s Leadership Club were on hand to present the colors and afterward Taps was played on a vintage military bugle.

I’m so excited—Santa is coming! I know it’s a bit early, and we haven’t let the turkey have its day, but it’s Santa! News is, the jolly old man himself will be coming in with sirens blaring and lights flashing from the Emergency Vehicle Lighted Caravan that escorts him each year. This year he will arrive at Lyle’s Activity Center downtown, on Sunday, Dec. 3, around 6 p.m. As usual, he will listen to each child’s wish list as others enjoy hot cocoa and cookies. Complimentary photographs of the children with Santa will be taken and left at the post office a day or two later, but feel free to bring your own camera just in case.
