Powell High School will debut its latest theater production, “Once Upon a Mattress” Friday at 7 p.m. in its auditorium.

The adaptation of the fairy tale “The Princess and the Pea” is a return to musical comedies after a brief departure into heavier fare. The high school’s previous show, “The Diviners,” was a more traditional character-driven drama.

Male lead Josiah Hogan said he expects this show to be more accessible than “Diviners” and better received by the community.

Decision makers got a glimpse into Powell Middle School’s future during Tuesday night’s Park County School District No. 1 board meeting.

Members of CTA Architects and Engineers took Powell board members and school administrators on a virtual tour of the design for phase two of Powell Middle School’s expansion and renovation.

The generosity of a community can help grant an ill Powell child’s wish Friday night at Powell High School.

A Make-A-Wish Foundation spaghetti dinner will be held in the school’s common area at 5:30 p.m., with a live auction to follow in the school’s gym at 7 p.m. All proceeds will go towards fulfilling the wish of an anonymous Powell child facing a life-threatening medical condition.

Jean Hubbard, a guidance counselor at Powell Middle School, would receive emails from Christy Davis every Monday morning.

Despite Davis’ circumstances (she was undergoing chemotherapy following a diagnosis of ovarian cancer), her emails to her best friend always focused on the positive.


Before I lived in Park County I was unfamiliar with the acronym RiNO (Republican in Name Only), which I’ve since gathered is used by some as a synonym for the acronym POS.

The Powell Panthers junior varsity basketball team finished its season below .500 for the first time in head coach Waleryan Wisniewski’s four years at the helm.

Wisniewski said roster fluctuation and an influx of young players hindered the potential the team had coming into the season, and led to a 10-11 record.

The Powell High School cheer team finished second in the stunt event at the 2013 State Spirit Competition at the Casper Events Center March 6.

It was Powell’s best finish in the competition since the Panthers won stunt in 2010.
