Final Honor Flight

While his days as a World War II sailor are long since past, Glendon Kriese recently received a hero’s reception as he embarked on Wyoming’s final Honor Flight to Washington, D.C.

RECYCLING CENTER’S NEW HOME ACCOMMODATES COMMUNITY’S NEEDS

Winter weather may be around the corner, but things are greening up on Powell’s western edge.

On Monday afternoon, Powell Valley Recycling opened at its new location at 946 Road 10, just across from the west water tower.

Loaves and Fishes pantry shelves depleted

Though it’s a bit too early for trick-or-treating, local youth will go door to door Wednesday night seeking edible items — not for themselves, but for Powell Valley Loaves and Fishes.

Culture changing, but enforcement needs to continue

If you’re under 21, buying alcohol in Powell is not as easy as it once was.

Curbside Recycling in charge of commercial cardboard collection

Being in the business of reusing and salvaging, it’s only fitting that Powell Valley Recycling is repurposing an older building into a new center to fit its needs. Reconstruction of the former Park County road and bridge shop is under way, and after some delays, the recycling center is on track to open in its new location this month.

You know the unexpected joy that comes from discovering a $20 bill tucked away in the pocket of a coat from last winter? Imagine finding out about hundreds of millions of dollars you didn’t expect.

Innovative methods applauded in fight against lake trout

Deep in the waters of Yellowstone Lake lurk thousands of trout that threaten the fragile ecosystem of America’s beloved first national park.

Non-native lake trout prey on cutthroat trout native to Yellowstone Lake, but it’s not simply a case of big fish versus little fish — much more is at stake.

When a Powell resident gets a knock on the door, they can pretty easily distinguish between a local Girl Scout selling cookies and a traveling salesman hawking vacuums. But making that distinction under the law is a lot tougher.

Concerned that proposed regulations on door-to-door sales would also burden local nonprofit groups, the Powell City Council voted unanimously last week to table an ordinance dealing with solicitors, peddlers and transient merchants.
