With Thanksgiving right around the corner, Powell is kicking off the holiday season this week with Sample the Season.

It was a difficult start to November.

The first snowstorm of the season packed a punch, as temperatures plunged into single digits and came with bitterly cold wind and an extra helping of snow. In addition to the frigid temperatures, it’s getting dark an hour earlier, thanks to the time change.

The vast majority of kids in school today were born after 9/11. Those school children who were alive when terrorists attacked America in September 2001 were babies or toddlers at the time — too young to remember the horror of that day, and the resilience which followed and the patriotism it spawned in the United States.

Local students can now take Powell Middle School classes from their bedrooms, kitchens or wherever they have an internet connection.

Support the businesses that support our community

One of downtown Powell’s busiest days of the year is Halloween. Come rain, shine, wind or snow, dozens of trick-or-treaters trek up and down the sidewalks, getting candy from local businesses as part of Powelloween.

Wyoming recently got a reminder of why it’s sometimes a blessing that our small state tends to stay out of the national spotlight.

Local kids ringing doorbells tomorrow night won’t be looking for candy, but rather, something more nutritious.

Youth will collect food donations for Powell Valley Loaves and Fishes around Powell from 5:30-8 p.m. Wednesday as part of the 31st annual Fall Food Drive.

For many local households, warm meals at dinnertime, full refrigerators and well-stocked pantries are normal. But some families and individuals in our community struggle to put food on their tables.

If you ask kids whether they’d like a half-day off from school every week, you’ll likely get a resounding yes.

But adults may feel differently.

When taking roll call in Powell classrooms, 1,835 students are present this year.

Park County School District No. 1 saw an increase of about 1.4 percent — or 25 students — in enrollment this fall.
