Help prevent substance abuse


February 7, 2018

Klickitat-Lyle Against Substance Abuse Coalition’s (KLASAC) Coordinator Rita Pinchot, wants to invite any and all who are interested in keeping our students from the substance abuse that once ran rampant in our communities. This organization is working hard to rid this destructive addiction that has devastated lives in so many of our younger generation. Their next coalition meeting is set for February 21st from 5 - 6:30 in Lyle School with the extra bonus of it being a meeting where they are planning a dessert social for the last 30 minutes of the evening. Contact Rita at (360) 952-3569 or

Don’t forget to see the latest of movies the new Film Club is offering. It’s a 2006 Oscar winning film titled “The Lives of Others” and will be airing Friday, Feb. 9 at 6:30 p.m. in the Lyle Activity Center. So far there is no admission fee.

As we all know, around here, the Ground Hog saw its shadow on the 2nd. We have been blessed with a wonderful January with no inkling of what is in store for us in the added six weeks of winter that the frightened rodent decides to bestow on us. Although I love the mild winters, it is a mixed blessing: with the drought in the summer months depleting our lakes and rivers to the point that objects that were long submerged are now surfacing but giving us a visual of the landscape and structures that were previously hidden.

When I was a child I used to think that I would love for the Columbia to be dry so I could walk along the bottom and see all the things that must have been lost or sunken. I imagined it a great way to clean all the wads of fishing lines, different kinds of lures, netting and maybe there would even be a ship that I could explore. Of course I was too young to realize that if that happened it would be a severe devastation on humanity. If it were to be that dry, it would mean no runoff from our mountains and our water supply would be null and void, affecting also the nearby lakes. It’s a good thing that not all childhood dreams come true.
