Yellow bus monster on the way


August 22, 2018

Soon that big yellow monster will be prowling the streets and snatching up little children. It has flashing yellow and red eyes and its mouth is on the side of its face. It’s weird how the children gather in groups and seem to be anxious to dive right into that mouth, and the parents are willing to see them sacrifice themselves with a smile and a wave goodbye. The first day of school for Lyle Community Schools students in grades 1-12 is Aug. 29, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Be aware that: Students new to the district should bring immunization records and a birth certificate, if available. And if you are in grades 9-12 and new to the district, bring along transcripts from the last school if you have them. If you don't have them, please come register anyway and we will request your records from your previous school. All school dates are on the Lyle School District webpage: If you have questions, or need to register your child for kindergarten or pre-kindergarten, please call (509) 365-2211.

There is going to be a Clothing Exchange at Lyle Activity Center, Aug. 28, from 5 to 8 p.m. We all have something in our closet or chest of drawers that we have given up hope of fitting into, right? Well here’s a way to get them out of your sight so you won’t feel guilty anymore. Maybe your kids have outgrown some nice clothes that you want to find a good home for and would help others start back to school in style. The Clothes Exchange will have all sizes and styles of summer and fall clothing to choose from. Dressing rooms will be available and everyone is welcome to participate. To schedule the donation drop off time for clean summer and fall clothing in good condition, contact

The Klickitat County Fair is coming up fast! This Thursday through Sunday, Aug. 23 - 26. If you are going to enter your beautiful handmade items, you have to know that there are time requirements. Check out the website by just typing “Klickitat County Fair” in your search engine, and it will take you right to it. All the many exciting things to see and do, all the rules and regulations, all the entertainment lined up for the week, where to find curly fries—check it out and then get those entries in on time. You may think your work is not good enough, but the judges’ decisions may prove otherwise. Have you taken a walk through the Industrial Building? There is always neat free stuff in there. This is a campaign year, so there may be political buttons for you to wear to announce your choice of candidate, or maybe some trinket from the PUD booth. My favorite thing of course is the craft building with all the diverse forms of art; I spend hours in there. My second favorite thing is people watching, so I get my third favorite thing—that stack of curly fries—and sit at a bench where I can see everyone walk by while listening to the scheduled free entertainment. Of course I have to check out the vendor booths. Especially the ones with bling. We girls love bling. So get yourself to the County Fair; you’ll be glad you did. Oh, and did I mention they have curly fries? They rank right up there with my infamous Turtle Blizzard, so I hope I don’t get a ticket on my way there!
