What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Orange fluorescent hands, about 18 inches square, are now being made as part of a new program to assist senior citizens, the disabled and shut-ins. Martin Brenneke, a city coun­ cilman and chairman of a spe­ cial Mayor’s committee to inves­ tigate ways to assist people, particularly in colder weather, explained the program was a result of a death last year that was blamed on a cold spell. “As aresultofthe cold, people 'C o u ldn’tg e t o u t M a n y d o n ’t h a v e phones. The Helping Hand con­ cept can be a way the y can le t people k n o w the y need some help.” , The orange hand-shaped signs will each have a large number printed on them. I f a person is in trouble, or needs assistance, they simply need to put the sign in the window and bypassers just need to call the police. “Some one will go right over to investigate, Brenneke said. The program is expected to be operating by mid-November, he said. N e w T V i e w f e a t u r e d . . .
