In 2000, Powell rallied to improve local retail shopping.

More than 500 people invested in The Powell Mercantile, together raising more than $400,000 to open a clothing store in downtown. The Merc, as everyone calls it, became both an outlet for people to buy clothing, shoes and other items, and a point of pride that has been hailed nationally as an example of what a community can do.

Rep. Cynthia Lummis sat quietly for most of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing.

The Sleeping Giant is about to awaken.

The Sleeping Giant Ski Area will open for the season Friday. It will celebrate its first weekend of the 2014-15 season with the Sleepy G Jamboree on Saturday, which will include a bonfire in the parking lot and a torchlight ski parade down the Big Horn lift. Dinner will be served at the end of the day as well.

Thumbs down to the changes to Country Christmas, especially the daytime parade.

The Powell High School Panthers will have to scratch and claw to contend for a 3A boys basketball state title.

And that’s exactly what they intend to do if their coach and senior leaders have anything to say about it.

In the end, the life of Anfesa Marie Galaktionoff was worth $7,000.

At least, that is the penalty assessed by the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services Occupational Safety and Health Administration against the Western Sugar Cooperative for the Jan. 4 death of Galaktionoff.

brew pub planned for downtown Powell got a round of support from the Powell City Council Monday night.

Thumbs up to Sally Montoya Day.

On Monday night, the Powell City Council declared Dec. 23 as Montoya’s day in the sun for her efforts to serve her community, which trace back to 1949.

Debating major issues with other U.S. senators may have been an adjustment for Sen. Al Franken, but it can’t be much tougher than writing for John Belushi or chasing one of The Beatles out of your office.

Black Friday may get a lot of national media attention, but Small Business Saturday’s impact in local communities is on the grow.

The two shopping days follow Thanksgiving but they are as different as night and day. While big box stores have pushed Black Friday from the afternoon to early morning to, in some cases, Thanksgiving itself, Small Business Saturday remains a locally driven day on the Saturday following the annual family gathering and feast.
