For some reason, the world just looks different through the windows of a school bus.

Even the town you live in seems like an undiscovered territory when it’s silently gliding by like footage from 1960s home movies.

As the smartest person in Park County (and likely the state) I feel like I’d be doing the public a disservice if I didn’t share my enlightened views and delightfully progressive ideas.

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.

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.
