    Tennis splits with Cody

    The Powell High School girls tennis team trumped Cody again on Tuesday, while Cody got a bit of revenge on the Powell boys. Playing in Cody, the Lady Panthers won four of five matches — as they did on Sept. 4 — while the Panther boys went 2-3; the boys had beaten Cody 3-2 earlier in the year.
  • EDITORIAL: Education, honesty needed to reduce teenage birth rates

    Thumbs up to a report that the teen birth rate declined in Wyoming for the fifth year in a row, but thumbs down to the fact that it remains above the national average. The Wyoming Department of Health reports that 34.6 babies per 1,000 are born to girls ages 15-19. That’s down from 50.1 births per 1,000 in 2007 but still far too high; the national rate is 29.4 births per 1,000 to teen moms.
