It happened in an instant, but its impact will be felt for months.

The wind came up around 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 30, and as it did the temperature dropped sharply, from the mid 70s to the high 40s. Gusts of up to 51 mph were recorded, according to the National Weather Service, and within two hours more than half an inch of rain had fallen.

Anti-smoking group may pay for poll, or help arrange for it

Powell residents may be surveyed to determine their thoughts on a proposed smoking ban.

City Administrator Zane Logan said Friday the city is considering using data gathered by a polling agency to learn what people want the city to do.

Tossing horseshoes is an ancient game, with some researchers saying Greek soldiers played a version of it in their camps 2,000 years ago.

The game was popularized in America during the Civil War, as soldiers tossed discarded muleshoes at targets to pass the time between battles and marches. By the early 20th century horseshoes was widespread across the nation, as players found the sport a welcome way to pass the time and connect with their rural roots.


We applaud the Powell City Council and Mayor Don Hillman for seeking as much public input as possible before making a decision on a proposed smoking ban.
