Whiteman to miss season

At 5 p.m. on Tuesday evening, when they were supposed to be wrapping up their second game against the Blue Devils of Miles City, the Powell Pioneers were playing catch during an evening practice in Powell.

Heny, vogt shine in opener; walks, errors plague squad

The Powell Pioneers squeaked by the Billings Halos in the first game of a Saturday doubleheader but were overpowered in game two and remain at .500 on the season.

The Powell Pioneers took three of four against the Billings Angels this weekend to improve to 3-3 on the season.

Pitching led the Pioneers to two road victories Saturday while offense ruled back in Powell as the Pioneers won Sunday’s first game but couldn’t complete the sweep.

A proposal to start a wrestling program for sixth-grade students at Powell Middle School has been denied by the Powell school board.

For some reason, the world just looks different through the windows of a school bus.

Even the town you live in seems like an undiscovered territory when it’s silently gliding by like footage from 1960s home movies.

The aftermath of Mike Heny’s termination as head coach of the Powell High School boys’ basketball team left the Powell school board short-handed, the public to speculate, and a former public official seeking answers.

On April 19, six weeks after his Powell Panthers narrowly missed out on hoisting a state championship trophy, Powell High School head basketball coach Mike Heny was informed he would not be returning to his position.

He could step down voluntarily, or be shown the door.


Karen Richmond wasn’t sure what to expect when her husband Kenneth left their Powell home the morning of May 1. But in their 32 years of marriage, she’s come to expect (if not fully accept) the unexpected.

Powell High School will debut its latest theater production, “Once Upon a Mattress” Friday at 7 p.m. in its auditorium.

The adaptation of the fairy tale “The Princess and the Pea” is a return to musical comedies after a brief departure into heavier fare. The high school’s previous show, “The Diviners,” was a more traditional character-driven drama.

Male lead Josiah Hogan said he expects this show to be more accessible than “Diviners” and better received by the community.
