City preps for first year of operation costs

The city of Powell is preparing to navigate uncharted waters as it operates the Powell Aquatic Center in its premier year.

With no history of swimmers' usage or operating costs, city leaders are setting up a budget based on their best estimates. The proposed 2010-11 budget, which takes effect July 1, estimates the pool's first-year operating costs at $829,728.

A preliminary budget for 2010-11 was approved last week by the Park County School District No. 1 board.

Mary Jo Lewis, coordinator of business services for District No. 1, presented the budget based on preliminary figures.

The new budget is based on anticipated revenues of $22,340,906 — an increase of more than $433,000 over this year's anticipated revenue.

The spring hazing of bison on the west side of Yellowstone National Park aimed at minimizing the potential spread of brucellosis from bison to cattle. But it has caused some humans to lock horns.

Conservation groups decry the federally-funded hazing, but the Montana Stockgrowers Association says hazing is necessary to thwart potential brucellosis infection in cattle.

Panther boys in position to defend 3A title

The Powell Panthers look to defend their 3A boys' state title as the Wyoming State Track and Field Championships open today (Thursday) at Harry Geldien Stadium in Casper. After a dramatic win a year ago, the team knows it is showing up with a bulls-eye painted on its back.

“A lot of people around the state have high expectations for us,” said senior Matthew Condie, who will be looking to build upon last year's fourth-place finish in the pole vault. “I'd like to go out as a team and prove those expectations right.”

Panther soccer team hopes to avoid ‘09 repeat

Strictly speaking, Powell and Buffalo don't schedule each other annually in soccer. It only seems that way.

The Panthers and Bison have become common first-round foes at the state tournament and the 2010 state championships, which get started today (Thursday) in Sheridan, are no exception. Both the Powell boys (6-6-2) and the Panther girls (4-9) find their road to the championship half of the state soccer bracket blocked again by Buffalo.
