But some still waiting to see

While some Northwest College employees say the college environment is getting better as mediation progresses, they fear the change is temporary. Others are more hopeful, while still other employees say things haven't changed.

Fred Ebert, instructor in speech communications and forensics, described the feeling on the college campus as one of disengagement while people wait to see what happens.

Powell police first to feel effects

With the city in a hiring freeze and an officer away from the department, Powell police will be stretched a little thin for the foreseeable future.

Officer Matt Danzer left the department Sept. 9 to take a policing job in Bozeman, Mont., and because of the hiring freeze in effect at the city of Powell, he will not be replaced. Meanwhile, Officer Chad Glick has been on a 12-month deployment with the Wyoming National Guard since June.

Nearly 60 years after their service in Korea, Burl Gonion of Powell and other members of the Wyoming Army National Guard's 300th Armored Field Artillery Battalion will receive the Navy and Marine Corps Presidential Unit Citation on Friday.

The award will take place during a reunion of the unit, also known as the 300th Cowboy Cannoneers, this weekend in Cheyenne.
