Effort to censure Sen. Coe will be discussed during the convention

Whether to shun a long-time Cody legislator will be one of the topics decided by members of the Park County Republican Party this weekend.

They deserved to bring a trophy home,” said Powell High School girls head basketball coach Scott McKenzie. “And they did it.”

The third-place hardware wasn’t the Class 3A title the Lady Panthers had hoped for, but it put a bronze bow on a successful 19-9 campaign.

A neurosurgeon who used to practice in Cody and Powell has been stripped of his medical license in connection with a Billings, Mont., man’s 2011 fatal overdose on prescribed painkillers.

The Wyoming Board of Medicine revoked John H. Schneider Jr.’s license on Wednesday after its two-year investigation concluded that Schneider’s continued practice of medicine posed a danger to the public.

All season long, coaches and media across Wyoming have favored the girls basketball teams from Class 3A’s eastern conference over those from the West. But at this weekend’s state tournament, it’s time for the players to have the final word.

The Powell High School’s girls basketball team met its primary goal at the Class 3A West Regional Tournament — earning a trip to the state tournament — but couldn’t quite get a regional championship.

The Lady Panthers (17-8) beat Jackson 50-35 on Thursday and trumped Star Valley 35-23 on Friday before falling in the finals to tournament-host Mountain View.

With a pair of wins at the regional tournament, the Powell High School girls and boys basketball teams each earned tickets to this week's Class 3A State Tournament in Casper.

On Saturday, the Lady Panthers settled  for Class 3A West's No. 2 seed after a 31-19 loss to regional champion (and tournament host) Mountain View. The Panther boys earned a trip to state with a 60-56 overtime win against Jackson, then ended up with the West's No. 4 seed by falling to Star Valley on Saturday evening, 54-42.

Powell man’s life saved by quick actions of wife, police and medics

A 51-year-old man has been sentenced to eight-and-a-half to 12 years in prison for raping a Powell woman in 2012.

A December 2012 crime spree that culminated in two Powell residents being robbed at gunpoint has resulted in 13 felony convictions and more than 22 years of prison time as well as jail time and fines for the four individuals involved in the crime.
