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.

A few hunting parties are going to have to leave their equipment - horse trailers and pickups - until the roads open next July 1 \ \There isn’t any off-road travel allowed in tho area to protect the natural resources* That’s real tempting te do when you're confronted %ith a drift blockingyour way \ Petroni said. \B u t it s real hard ot the land.\ The closure affects the north- south Gravelly Range Road, Forest Road 290, from its junc­ tion with Road 347 in Eureka Basin, on the south, to its junc­ tion with Road 292, the CaU Road, on the north.
