Sweet success for Panthers swim team

For the second time in 11 days the Powell High School swim team beat Cody High School, and for the first time in three years, diver Hannah Sweet qualified for state.

How is this an issue in 2012 America?

I read a news story this weekend that made me sick, which is no easy feat in the 24-hour murder/rape/war news cycle we live in.

The headline read: Taylor Santos, Texas High School Student, Left ‘Burned And Blistered’ After Male Vice Principal Spanked Her.

A bear of a project

PHS students take on taxidermy challenge

Art students at Powell High School could smell a rare opportunity as they walked in to school Tuesday morning.

The male grizzly bear euthanized on the east side of Heart Mountain Sept. 7 was waiting for them in James Gilman's classroom at the back of the school.

Blue Ribbon for Pride

Parkside recognized by U.S. Department of Education

Parkside Elementary has been recognized as a 2012 National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education, one of only three schools in the state to earn the honor.

Not that I’m covering professional sports, but I’m covering sports as a professional. Baby steps.

Girls’ swim team shines at home

The crowd roared and the water was turbulent at the Powell Aquatic Center on Saturday, as the hometown Panthers were cheered to a third place finish at the Gene Dozah Invitational.

Jackson Hole took first with 320 points, followed by Lander-233, Powell-228, Buffalo-163, Cody-157, Riverton-109 and Worland-90.

About 20 years ago I made a decision – an unequivocal mistake – that will limit the amount of pleasure I ultimately experience in my life. I pledged my allegiance to the San Francisco 49ers.

‘In data we trust’

When Rick and Judith LaPlante moved to Powell from Seattle in the summer of 2007, they, unlike many big-city transplants, knew exactly what they were getting into.

In an attempt to escape the rat race of city life, the LaPlantes had decided they wanted to move to a small town.

High school wasn’t my favorite time spent at public education. I don’t know if I do even have a favorite time, but it wouldn’t be more than a few hours long, and it definitely wouldn’t have been during high school.
