Antelope Fire smokes Basin

The Antelope Fire, southeast of Tower Fall in Yellowstone National Park, likely left an indelible imprint in local minds when the fire's smoke was visible to the west from Powell Tuesday evening.

Powell transfer station gets another shot

City applies for nearly $1 million grant for transfer station

Anticipating the Powell landfill's closure in 2012, city leaders see two basic scenarios: No. 1 — trash is hauled directly to Cody's lined landfill on a daily basis using local collection trucks; No. 2 — trash is stored and processed at a Powell transfer station and then larger quantities are transported to Cody in a compaction trailer a couple of times a week.

Overwhelmingly, Powell leaders prefer the transfer station scenario.

With three months left in the calendar year, Yellowstone National Park has already set a record for annual visitation, thanks in part to strong numbers in September.

On Wednesday, spokesmen for the National Park Service and Xanterra, the park's concessionaire, attributed the high volume in part to aggressive marketing that enticed people to visit Yellowstone.

What began as a vision on paper just eight months ago will step onto the pitch in the flesh this Friday as the Northwest College Trappers open their first-ever soccer seasons. The program was created last December by a vote of the Northwest College Board of Trustees.

“It feels like it has been a long time coming,” said Trapper soccer coach Rob Hill, whose life has actually been more of a whirlwind since learning early this year that he had been tabbed to build the Northwest College programs from the ground up.
