    by David Peck, Lovell Chronicle This is the time of year when we doff our hats to the folks who take our school kids from event to event: our bus drivers. Hollywood has made fun of bus drivers as hapless victims of rowdy school kids hell bent on raising as much havoc as possible during a simple ride to school, and indeed, some routes surely do enjoy their share of hijinks.

I believe this is the case with HB87- Crimes of obscenity – revisions, which calls for librarians to be subject to prosecution as child pornographers. In a state who...

    Tatum Epperson|Feb 9, 2023

    Last Friday evening, the Bobcats varsity boys team hosted Lyman for a home game with the Cats falling 48 to 30.
