As summer draws to a close, we applaud the well-organized and managed construction project to widen U.S. Highway 14-A east of Cody to five lanes — two lanes going each direction, with a turning lane in the middle.

The $9. 6 million project is the last of 11 projects the Wyoming Department of Transportation has planned and overseen since 2001 to widen the highway between Powell and Cody at a total cost of nearly $66.4 million, making it easier, faster and safer to travel between the two cities.

The summer is half over, three weeks of July have passed and the weather is heating up. In Powell, that means one thing: This is Park County Fair week.

Candidates for two statewide elected positions — Wyoming superintendent of public instruction and Wyoming secretary of state — were in Cody on July 7 for a public debate that was not well attended.

Cascading mechanical problems initially caused by hot brakes culminated in a fire that consumed a full-size motor coach east of Ten Sleep on July 3.
