Help needed for Poverty Simulation


January 30, 2019

About this message—and to avoid confusion, it was not from me, but from a lady in High Prairie: “On the first Tuesday of every month, beginning Feb. 5, a group of friends and neighbors will be making mats for the homeless and veterans. These will be made from grocery sacks. I would like to ask everyone to save clean and dry grocery sacks to be put to good use. I will see about getting a clean garbage can put outside the community center for this purpose. Anyone willing to volunteer, we will start at 1 p.m. until? Meeting location is 170 Oda Knight Road; call Anna at (503) 753-6806.” The location she speaks of is the High Prairie Community Center.

A local group is working together to support a Poverty Simulation in Klickitat County and is currently seeking volunteers to “work” at the event. Their goal is for the volunteers to be people who currently live in poverty so that they can share their experience with leaders and decision makers who attend the event. All volunteers will get a $25 gift card to a local gas or grocery store of their choice and child care is covered. The event is on March 6 from 9 a.m. to noon in White Salmon. If you or anyone you know might be interested, have them contact Kirsten Poole at or by calling (509) 493-2662.

Volunteers at the Twin Bridges museum were busy little bees planning this year’s exhibits and getting things lined up on their calendar of events. Opening day in June is promising to bring more interesting displays.

Many Lyle residents are saddened at the loss and share condolences to the family of LaVena Williams, who passed away Jan. 14 at Providence Hospital in Portland. It is a great loss to all who knew her, and she will be sorely missed.

I’ve been seeing commercials lately about “All you can eat pancakes at I-Hop.” So? Who needs I-Hop? We have that here, and we don’t have to drive all the way to Portland or Vancouver to get them. Just stop in at the Lyle Lion’s First Saturday Breakfast on Feb. 2, and they will be waiting for you. Also, I noticed an ad that the Dallesport/ Murdock Fire Department puts out a good spread on the third Saturday of each month. Their next one will be on Feb. 16 at their fire station. They give you a choice of biscuits and gravy or those wonderful pancakes for only $5. Who says small towns don’t know how to treat their residents great? Not anyone around here!
