Ticket prices for flights from Cody to Denver will be more comparable to those in Billings, and United Airlines will depart from Cody to Denver at 8 a.m. for at least the next six months under a new agreement hammered out between the Cody Yellowstone Air Improvement Resources, or CYAIR, and United Airlines.

United will provide a 50-passenger regional jet that can make the flight 30 minutes faster than the old United plane, said James Klessens, board member and CEO/president of Forward Cody.

Shutout of Pinedale puts Powell girls in final eight

After a sluggish start, the Powell High School girls' soccer team spent the second half relentlessly peppering Pinedale with shots in a 4-0 shutout that earned the squad a trip to the state tournament in two weeks. The Panthers also lost an 11-1 decision to Jackson on Friday.

“We came out a little slow and weren't moving as well as we needed to,” said Panther head coach Brad Hammond. “At the half, we talked about making runs and attacking better and we were able to go out and get some goals on the board."

Panther track teams close regular season in Cody

The Powell Panthers tuned up for 3A regional competition this weekend by capturing the boys' championship and the girls' runner-up honors at the Cody Trackstavaganza on Friday. For many on the Panthers' roster, it was the first competitive track action in nearly two weeks.

Two new automatic qualifiers emerged from the cold meet. Senior Hannah Pollart earned a spot in the state high jump field. The girls' 4x800 relay team of Alyssa Rodriguez, Skye Albert, Brooke Nisley and Kassey MacDonald also surpassed the state qualifying standard in the event.

Monday's open house at the new Powell Aquatic Center marked the culmination of years of dreaming and planning on the part of city officials, community members and other local organizations.

The aquatic center — with its continuous river and competition and leisure pools — will offer recreation opportunities for people of all ages, abilities and interests. Competitive swimming, lessons for youngsters, injury rehabilitation and general fitness are just a few of the possibilities the aquatic center brings to the community.

While the bulk of the pool construction — as well as a significant operations endowment — was funded by a county-wide capital facilities tax, ongoing support is necessary. Yearly memberships are available for individuals and families, and membership fees will help the facility remain solvent.

Quality recreation facilities are attractive features for people, young and old, looking to relocate to a community. They also go a long way toward keeping families here.

Though the pool has stirred up controversy and has been met with conflicting views, its opening signifies a new beginning.

The new aquatic center will be a positive for this community for years to come.

A couple of years ago, then-Vice President Dick Cheney was asked for his reaction to polls that showed two-thirds of American people didn't think the war in Iraq was worth it.

“So?” he responded, and went on to elaborate.
