Common sense triumphed on Tuesday when college football was dragged kicking and screaming from the dark ages of tradition and into the modern championship era by announcing that, starting in 2014, a four-team playoff would determine the national champion. For decades we’ve been told that this very sort of thing was unfeasible.
Lynn’s late hit keeps Powell perfect in conference
Justin Lynn’s one-out single through a drawn-in infield completed Powell’s rally from a nine-run deficit and produced a 16-15 victory Thursday night. Powell also took a 10-6 victory in the early game to sweep the doubleheader.
Jake Buester fired a complete-game three-hitter and three Powell Pioneers combined to strike out 22 batters over the weekend as the team swept a conference doubleheader from Cody 8-1 and 13-8 on Tuesday night.
If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is around to hear it, does it actually make a sound? That question, inspired by 18th century philosopher George Berkeley, inquires whether things exist if nobody is around to actively perceive them.
They converged from seven different states, covered the entire rainbow of belt levels and spanned multiple generations.

Wyoming fishing fees had been waived for the day. My daughter was now old enough to understand that the purpose behind fishing was to catch fish on the hook rather than stun them into submission by hefting either a big rock or her little brother into the water, where both make an equally satisfying splash.
Ehlers' success the bright for Northwest Trappers so far
Breakaway roper Jessica Ehlers followed a solid first-round time of 3.2 seconds with a blazing time of 2.6 seconds in her second go on Tuesday night to position herself well heading to round three of the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper. Ehlers was scheduled to take her third run on Wednesday night after the paper went to press.
