The Powell Lady Panthers completed an exhausting week last weekend, taking a dual win over Riverton on Friday but finishing behind the field at the Pinedale Invitational on Saturday.

The big news as I write this is that Chris Christie, the governor of New Jersey, has decided not to enter the Republican race for the chance to run against Barack Obama.

Shucks, just when I thought the race was going to get really interesting.

Waiting for the messiah

The big news as I write this is that Chris Christie, the governor of New Jersey, has decided not to enter the Republican race for the chance to run against Barack Obama.

Shucks, just when I thought the race was going to get really interesting.

Over the past two years, the Park County Sheriff’s Office has experienced considerable turnover, prompting Sheriff Scott Steward to raise concerns about the county-wide pay plan adopted by the Park County Commission last year.

Last weekend’s swimming didn’t produce high team scores for the Powell High School Lady Panthers, but for many individual swimmers, it proved a weekend of faster times, demonstrating their progress since the season began.

EDITORIAL: Dueling job plans

In recent days, at least two plans to boost our economy and create jobs have been proposed to the American people.

Last week a group of Western congressmen, including all three members of Wyoming’s delegation, issued a proposal they call the Western Caucus Jobs Frontier proposal. The next day, President Barack Obama brought his administration’s plan to Congress. The proposals are predictable in many ways.

Three more Lady Panthers earned a trip to the state finals and another one added a qualifying time as the team took on Worland in a dual meet and hosted their annual invitational last week.

AMEND CORNER: Reflecting on an attack

What else is there to say about 9/11?

In the decade since those horrible images filled our television screens, the attacks have been the subject of untold volumes of analyses, commentaries or just plain emotional venting by politicians, commentators, scholars, preachers and just about everyone else who has the ability to write and a place to put their writing before the public.

The incident has been decried, mourned, analyzed and speculated on in just about every form of media out there, not to mention on street corners and in living rooms and bars all over America.

As a consequence, it would seem just about everything that can be said has been said.

Still, the 10th anniversary of this event demands comment from those of us who comment on such things, so I feel compelled to do so, even though I am probably just saying things you have heard already — probably a thousand times.
