One of downtown Powell’s busiest days of the year is Halloween. Come rain, shine, wind or snow, dozens of trick-or-treaters trek up and down the sidewalks, getting candy from local businesses as part of Powelloween.

Wyoming recently got a reminder of why it’s sometimes a blessing that our small state tends to stay out of the national spotlight.

Local kids ringing doorbells tomorrow night won’t be looking for candy, but rather, something more nutritious.

Youth will collect food donations for Powell Valley Loaves and Fishes around Powell from 5:30-8 p.m. Wednesday as part of the 31st annual Fall Food Drive.

For many local households, warm meals at dinnertime, full refrigerators and well-stocked pantries are normal. But some families and individuals in our community struggle to put food on their tables.

If you ask kids whether they’d like a half-day off from school every week, you’ll likely get a resounding yes.

But adults may feel differently.

When taking roll call in Powell classrooms, 1,835 students are present this year.

Park County School District No. 1 saw an increase of about 1.4 percent — or 25 students — in enrollment this fall.

In nearly every subject and grade, Powell students scored above the state average in this year’s standardized tests.

At a time when common ground is hard to find on a football field, much less in Washington, a panel of Wyomingites tackled some of the toughest issues facing America at a Sunday forum.
