Getting a new electronic sign for the Powell Valley Chamber of Commerce will be a community-wide effort.

We awoke Monday morning to the horrific news: More than 50 people were killed and over 400 wounded in a mass shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The shooting is believed to be the worst in modern American history.

Saying they’ve been “irreparably harmed,” a couple is going to court to challenge a decision that would allow a group home to be constructed near their house in rural Powell.

Cody Laboratories, approved for an $11 million low-interest loan from the State of Wyoming last year, may be allowed to borrow $23 million instead.

We’d like nothing more than to proclaim that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs was wrong to move the local clinic for military veterans from Powell to Cody. This newspaper is an advocate for Powell and it hurts to see services leave this community and go somewhere else. For that reason, it was disappointing to see the Big Horn Basin’s Community Based Outreach Clinic taken away from Powell Valley Healthcare and awarded to Texas-based Valor Healthcare for an as-to-be-constructed facility in Cody.

Commissioners decline to bend rules for sign

Park County regulations allowed a Wapiti man to put up a billboard along the North Fork Highway, but they’ll bar him from using it to promote other people’s businesses.

Prosecutor says kids were living in ‘squalor’

Seven local men and women are facing felony charges for allegedly using methamphetamine in a filthy Cody home they were sharing with several young children.

Homeowners likely to see slightly bigger bills

Tougher times in the oil and gas industry last year will mean fewer property tax dollars for Park County’s schools, fire departments and other governmental entities this year.

Federal authorities hope to keep more than $20,000 in cash that a Yellowstone National Park ranger seized from two young Illinois men this summer. Prosecutors say one man admitted they had planned to use the money to buy marijuana in Oregon, then sell it in Illinois.

The United States government currently stands more than $19.8 trillion deep in debt. As of Thursday, the U.S. Treasury pegged the amount owed at exactly $19,844,586,961,607.12.

And you can expect that figure to only get worse.
