(June 18, 1943 - April 30, 2010)

Barbara Jean (Avery) Anschutz, 66, died April 30, 2010, in Fort Smith, Ark.

(July 20, 1940 - April 29, 2010)

Howard K. Branstetter, 69, died of cancer on April 29, 2010, at his home in Chugiak, Alaska.

(Oct. 13, 1946 - May 6, 2010)

Martin B. Anderson, 63, died May 6, 2010, at his home in Powell after a long, courageous battle with cancer.

Six Northwest College student-athletes reportedly have been dismissed following events stemming from a weekend altercation.

The incident allegedly began Saturday night at an off-campus party near Ralston and later flared up outside Simpson Hall on the NWC campus. Some of the individuals also face criminal charges for their roles in the incident.

Wind no concern for PHS soccer

The Powell Panthers gave little regard to both visiting Lander and a howling westerly wind on Tuesday afternoon to score a 4-0 non-conference boys' soccer victory.

“We looked like a totally different team,” said Panther head coach Pat D'Alessandro, referring to his team's previous outing, a 3-0 loss to Worland. “I don't know whether it was prom or if Worland just played that well, but we played a lot better today.”

“Do not go gentle into that good night, old age should burn and rave at close of day; rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
— Dylan Thomas


There, I said it. The first step to solving any problem is acknowledging that it exists, and in this case the problem is that yours truly is about to get trampled by the inevitable march of time.

Where's a lawyer when you need one? Somebody darn sure should have shouted “Stampede!” to warn me that it was time to break out the black balloons and pour myself a shot of prune juice.

We're all aware that Sunday is Mother's Day, but unaware of other, lesser-celebrated holidays. It seems like every month I learn of another obscure holiday on the books. Had I not stumbled upon it in my Daily Bread study page for April 30, I'd have never known last Friday was “National Honesty Day.”

Author M. Hirsh Goldberg established this day in the early 1990s as a way to “honor the honorable and encourage honesty.” He said April 30 was selected because “April begins with a day dedicated to lying (April Fool's Day) and should end on a higher moral note.” Truth be known, I couldn't agree more.

Panthers miss valuable opportunity to climb in 3A West standings

Powell High School failed to connect Saturday on a pair of opportunities to improve its status in the 3A West conference soccer standings as Worland journeyed to town, capturing a 4-2 win in girls' action and avenging an earlier loss with a 3-0 boys' win.

Powell's girls also fell 4-1 last week at Lander. The boys' game between the two schools was postponed due to poor weather and will take place today (Tuesday) at 5 p.m. at the college soccer field.

Team rebounds after rough home meet

With wind, rain and snow raging around the Big Horn Basin, the Powell High School golf team found enough relief from the elements on Friday to post a runner-up finish in the nine-team Riverton Invitational.

“In the eight years that I've coached golf, that was by far the worst weather we have ever driven in to get to a tournament,” said Panther golf coach Troy Hildebrand. “Thermopolis had 3-5 inches of snow and it was still coming down, so to get to Riverton and have it be playable and the weather at least decent was very fortunate.”

Panther boys throw 3A West into chaos with shut-out victory

The 3A West boys' soccer picture was jumbled on Friday, courtesy of the Powell Panthers. The Panthers delivered a 3-0 shutout victory at Worland — the same Warrior team that earlier this year defeated Cody and drew a contest against Jackson.

“This really does throw things just up in the air,” said Panther head coach Pat D'Alessandro. “It kind of puts us in control of our own destiny now, because the rest of our conference games are at home. If we can go out and take care of business, we're in great position to challenge for first or second.”
