Powell High School’s girls basketball team will have a bit of an unusual edge in this weekend’s Class 3A West regional tournament: they’ll be playing in their own gym.

For the first time since 2005, Powell is hosting the conference tournament.

Police say guns were stolen from a Cody store during a break-in early this (Tuesday) morning.

A staunchly conservative Powell audience urged U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., to fight back harder against President Barack Obama’s administration and for conservative causes.

With just days remaining before a March 1 deadline for broad, automatic spending cuts, former Sen. Alan Simpson of Cody is back in the national spotlight, offering a new deficit-reduction plan he sees as a possible compromise for Democrats and Republicans.

If it ever was a better deal to steal an insured car in Park County versus an uninsured one, that’s no longer the case.

The Park County Attorney’s office previously asked for convicted defendants to repay only the losses suffered directly by the victim. For example, in the case of a destroyed vehicle with insurance, prosecutors sought just the deductible paid by the owner and not losses covered by the insurance company.

Avenges earlier loss to Mountain View

The conference’s top and last-place teams came to the Lady Panthers’ gym last weekend and the Powell High School girls exacted some revenge on each.

PHS’ basketball team took down Class 3A West leader Lyman 42-39 on Friday, then beat Mountain View 35-31 on Saturday.

Partnering with other groups

Rather than act as a lone wolf, Park County is joining a pack of sportsmen, agricultural and local government groups to support Wyoming’s wolf management plan in federal court.

In past litigation over the management of the controversial predator, Park County acted independently, having the Park County Attorney’s Office represent its unique interests as home to the bulk of the state-managed wolves.

It’s only good news for now

Park County commissioners’ lack of faith in the federal government appears to have paid off in a big way this week.

Unsure the government would continue writing checks to Park County, commissioners had budgeted last summer for a big drop in annual federal payments known as Secure Rural Schools funding.

Some cowboys from Cody could be the stars of an upcoming Super Bowl ad for Coca-Cola.

Well, sort of.

Bill to let Clark split from Powell fails

A state Senate committee has killed a bill that would have enabled the Clark community to break with the Powell Recreation District and form its own.

Clark proponents of the split say they’re not getting their fair share of the Powell Recreation District’s budget, while Powell district officials say there’s typically not enough projects to use up the money currently being set aside for the Clark community.
