Get that Seahawks football


September 11, 2019

Twenty-plus Lyle residents attended the Planning Department hearing in Goldendale last Tuesday, Sept. 3, with pros and cons about the proposal of 30 condos being built on the west end of town. The outcome, as it was explained to me, was that the Planning Department Committee felt a need to table the topic until further information on several of the safety issues were answered, such as: parking, exit to and from Highway 14, access for fire equipment, pedestrians, and more. Written comments to the Board of Adjustments will be accepted before their final decision before their next meeting on or around Oct. 10. Do you have any concerns? It’s time to stand up and be heard. Contact the Klickitat County Planning Department, 228 West Main Street MS-Ch-17 Annex 1 Goldendale, WA 98620, or email to

KLASAC Coordinator Sheila Crapper wishes to extend an invitation to the public to join their Key Leader Event that is coming up on Sept. 27 for any of you who are interested. This is a great opportunity to hear from our local youth about topics that are important to them and what they would like from all of us. Please let her know if you would like to attend: (509) 316-9523.

Lyle got a little face lift last week. A brand-new paved parking lot now joins the Country Café and the Lyle Merc. Sure is better than bumping along over ruts and potholes! Kudos to the owners! It really looks nice.

It may be a tiny bit early, but I really wanted to get the message out about the Twin Bridges Museum’s Spaghetti Dinner and Silent Auction that is coming on Sept. 27 from 5 to 7 p.m. This annual fundraiser helps keep the local area’s family heirlooms and artifacts preserved for later generations to enjoy. I’ve been informed that among the many valuable auction items are gift certificates from our own local merchants, as well as OMSI, and for all you Seahawk fans—there is an autographed football from the coach himself that has had the committee members getting phone offers to buy it outright. But don’t worry, they said no to each and they’re holding on tight until it sits on the table with a bidding form beside it! Tickets can be purchased from members or at the door.
