Pre-K Roundup starts


If you get this in time, the kindergarten Pre-K Roundup will be registering three-, four-, and five-year-olds for the 2018/19 school year on Tuesday, May 8, at 3:30 p.m. at the Lyle School. Kindergarten child must turn five before Sept. 1 and have birth certificate and immunization records in hand. If you didn’t get this message in time, give them a call and see what can be managed.

As a few of us reporters in the area share with each other, I wish to add a couple of items from the Dallesport Newsletter from Rene Briggs: “Dallesport Spring Bazaar May 4, 2018 - May 6, 2018 Spring Bazaar and Pre- Mother's Day Sale. Come Check out our Awesome Vendors with Great Gifts for Mother's Day!! Proceeds will benefit Veterans Home Fires Burning. Raffle, Food, Pop and Water Available. Lemonade Stand Fundraiser! Dallesport Community Center on 6th Street Friday, May 4, from noon to 6 p.m .; Saturday, May 5, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m .; Sunday, May 6, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Barbara Rauch, (541) 980-5572.”

Also she added, “If you continue to receive calls from telemarketers and would like to be put on the No Call List, there are two options. 1. Call (888) 382-1222. You must be calling from the number you wish to register. You will get an automated recording that is very simple to use; just a few choices are asked and the process is complete. The request will be good for five years. 2. If you would like to do it online, go to”

I told you last week that I would learn about the Pioneer Days fundraiser Car Wash. It’s going to be May 12 at the Sandbar & Grill from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This is a good time to get the job done and not have to pack a bucket of suds or get soaking wet. The committee members will be scrubbing bubbles to get those cars all pretty! Cost will be by donation.

The Lyle Community Council is planning on implementing or perhaps reviving the very old Neighborhood Watch system that was started years ago. We don’t have as much crime as some of the neighboring communities, but it still happens, and it would be a great asset to have a few extra eyes patrolling the streets and making sure that we—and our belongings—are safe. The sheriff’s department is stretched pretty thin, and this way some of us just might be able to sleep a little easier. If you care to join the force, attend on Monday, May 21, at 6:30 p.m. at the Lyle School Library. Or get in touch with Kim:

Last but far from least, I want to remind you that this next Sunday is Mother’s Day and all the mothers that I know deserve to be recognized on this day. They put forth an effort to see you into this world and have most likely been on your side in any conflict that occurred so far. Show her your love and appreciation by giving her the best you can of what she likes. As far as I’m concerned—all I want is a phone call, wrapped in hugs and sealed with a kiss.
