    There’s a $600,000 question mark in this year’s budget for Park County School District No. 1. The 2014-15 budget approved by Park County School District No. 1 Board of Trustees last week includes general fund revenue estimated at roughly $24.4 million and expenses of around $25 million. The $600,000 difference is to pay for the education of students living in Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park — if they are included in the Powell school district.
  • EDITORIAL: Remember Stringer by naming football field in his honor

    Thumbs up to the life of coach Jim Stringer. The Powell community lost the husband, father, brother, son, friend, teacher and football coach Friday morning. While the community feels shock and deep pain at the premature death of Stringer, who was just 44, we could only imagine the sense of loss his wife, son and twin daughters are experiencing. The primary comfort that the Powell community can offer them is the respect and appreciation thousands felt for Jim Stringer.

Mary and Ed Wenzel never were big fair fans. Strolling the midway, going on the rides and chowing down on the numerous food offered at the booths wasn’t their idea of a fun way to spend a summer day.

But this week, for the third straight summer, the Wenzels are fair fixtures.

The difference? They are now fair employees.
