There’s an old joke about the four seasons in Wyoming: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction.

We’re quickly approaching road construction season.

A Powell High School student’s artwork soared to the top of the 2017 Wyoming Junior Duck Stamp Contest. Hannah Saville’s rendition of a king eider drake, titled “Taking Flight,” was recently named Best of Show out of 574 entries from around the state.

A warm meal for a senior citizen, a Shakespeare play and a flight from the Cody airport don’t appear to have much in common at first glance.

From dusty prairies to deep seas to outer space, Jim Gilman takes art to new levels with his students at Powell High School.

Remind kids to look both ways before crossing a street

After a long and quite miserable winter, we all welcome the warmer weather: Farmers returned to the fields, homeowners are happy to have a break from shoveling snow and kids wasted no time getting outside to play.

The Powell school district stands to lose more than $250,000 as a result of cuts made by the Wyoming Legislature.

If you yawn while reading this, it’s not necessarily our fault. Instead, blame the time change — it often takes everyone several days to adjust to awakening an hour earlier.

For the past several weeks, a chair at the Powell City Council meetings has remained empty.

Before starting kindergarten, I learned how to spell my last name. For a 5-year-old, stringing together the letters S-C-H-W-E-I-G-E-R-T can be a challenge. So, my parents helped prepare me for the task. Incidentally, my dad also taught my siblings and I how to say the alphabet backward as well as forward before entering kindergarten, but that’s another story.
