GOLDENDALE, WASHINGTON MAY 16, 2012 -- A5 C M M U N I T Y Kudos Allaway, students for spring concert Debbie Allaway directed the annual Glenwood School Spring Concert on May 9. The program began with the kindergarten through sec- ond grade students singing songs, Making Stone Soup and Stone Soup, and doing a dance from the play, Stone Soup. Third through fifth graders appeared in a cute play called The Case of the Missing Part of Speech - A Melogrammar. The play featured Kin- ley Troh as Professor McMertrue who was looking for a particular part of speech that was missing from a speech she was writing. She was aided by Det. Hargraves (Lilly Molneaux) and Hector the dog (Bailey Gimlin) as they ex- plored various parts of speech. Each part of speech sang an explanation of their purpose as they tried to help Prof. McMertrue find the part she was look- ing for. Parts of speech included Herb the Verb (Andy McFall); Nouns (Nick Palmer, Carmen Guzman, Erika Her- nandez, Kaitlyn Masden, Ashley Mar- latte, and Nahaleigh Schuster); Adjec- tive (Brian Whitefield); Adverb (Bella Couch); Preposition (Derek Gimlin); Interjection (Mar- quis Tyndall); Conjunction (Liam McLaughlan); and Pronoun (Max Jacobsen). The program concluded with the middle school and high school bands consoli- dating to perform, Procession from the Water Music, the theme from Chariots of Fire, The Man From Snowy River, and God Bless America.

After a winter of cloudy starless evenings it has been great to once again be amazed at the amount of stars we are fortu- nate enough to be able to see here in Trout Lake. If watching isn't your thing but you still love the stars, then maybe some hands on experience would be perfect and you'll get your chance on Thursday, May 24. If you ever wanted to know more about meteorites and shooting stars, then you will want to hear Dick Pugh. Dick has been studying meteorites all his adult life and is a leading authority on the subject. He has taught at many different institutions including Cleve- land High School in Portland. Cur- rently he is a pro- fessor at the Casca- dian Institute of Meteorites at Port- land State Univer- sity. He will bring with him $15,000 worth of meteorites so you can see and handle them. Dick will speak at the Grange at 7 p.m. on May 24, for the Trout Lake Men's Club. The public is welcome. In the morning he will be speaking to the students of Trout Lake School. Graduation time First Aid classes begin Saturday at Activity Center Gorge Networks is now offering higher internet speeds for Lyle. Between passing emails and a telephone interview, a Gorge Network representative explained the new set up as fol- lows: "The Wifi at (inside) the Activity Center is still free to the public. We have just installed a new wireless access point which gives the residents a higher speed connection than they previously enjoyed. We can now get people up to 3Mb (megabites) broadband internet where we were only getting 1.5 Mb before; so twice as fast. We just want residents of Lyle to know that this is an option for them if they are interested in faster internet for video streaming, gam- ing, etc. A recent tower upgrade means residents in downtown Lyle (One block north of Hwy 14 and all areas south of Hwy 14) and Rowena can now get this up- grade. The new site is west of Rowena and Lyle on the Washington side of the river, so if you have a view in that direc- tion, please give our sales department a call to get started, (541) 386-8300 ext. 301." The Lyle-Balch Cemetery was buzzing with worker bees on Saturday, Although this year the clean up was scheduled a week earlier than usual, many turned out and cleaned their family plots. From one end to the other workers joined forces and took on the challenge of a year's accumulation of leaves, pine cones and needles from the many trees inside the ceme- tery. Old flower arrangements were replaced with new ones in hopes that Memorial Day visitors will find it as clean and green as possible. Those unable to join the group will fred per- sonal time to honor their loved ones resting place before then. A First Aid/CPR class is being offered at the Activity Cen- ter on May 19, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Please contact Risi Howard at This month's Lyle Community Council meeting normally held on the fourth Monday each month has been canceled due to a lack of quorum because of a vacationing board member. Submit your news to: Mildred Lykens: 365-0060 - Thank SAR volunteers this week Have you noticed a lot more people in town this week? They are possibly Search and Rescue volunteers that are here this week for the conference being held at the fairgrounds, where they will be taking many different classes this whole week. If you see a person that you know to be a search and rescue volunteer, please thank them for all they do to rescue someone or help save lives. Maybe someone in your family has need- ed their services at one time. These volunteers do not get paid, so a Thank You would really help. There will be a public demon- stration of many things these vol- unteers do in their rescue at- tempts. You can even see Insitu from Bingen, demonstrate how their Drone works. And if the weather co- operates, there will also be a lifeflight demo. The public is invited at 11:15 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Saturday, May 19, at the Fairgrounds.
