Budget workshop time changed


November 14, 2018

The time of Lyle School District’s “Deep Dive into the Budget” workshop has been changed to 3 to 6 p.m., Friday, Nov. 16. Along with community members, other staff members, parents, students, and administrators, two teachers were invited to participate in the workshop when we first announced it. The original time was scheduled for 10 a.m. but has since been changed to 3 p.m. The committee will be working through a pre-established process with the facilitator. Questions will be answered following the regular session.

The Old Lyle Elementary School Supporters (OLESS) will be rededicating the pavilion in the park to its main builder. To honor his memory, it will bear his name: “The Norm White Pavilion.” It was his diligent work ethic that brought the building from blue print to the finished structure. He was teasingly titled the “Mayor of Lyle” by his many friends but would scoff it off with a grin and a wave of his hand. The event will coincide with this year’s Christmas Tree Lighting, and is open to the public. It’s all happening on Saturday, Dec. 1, at 5 p.m. So, how does cookies and cocoa sound to top off a chilly winter evening?

The mystery of the little silver car parked unattended for so long at the entrance of the Activity Center in Lyle has been solved. Evidently it’s owned by a friend of one of the people renting the old principal’s office there. After a call to the sheriff’s office about what appeared to be an abandoned car, a deputy responded, but upon hearing the story he dismissed the case.
