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.

B C H S h o o p s t e r s b e g i n s e a s o n w i t h c l a s s i c Tuosday,Nov.23.1989-©SSi®jsa The Dillon Beavers began last season as one ofthe hottest boys’ basketball teams in the state, but a late season slump kept the Beavers from advancing to the state tournament This year. Craig Finberg, in his fourth year as head coach, will look to guide his talent-rich team to the promised land. The Beavers, 13-8 last sea­ son, return seven varsity letter* meni all seniors, to the fold. Jason Donnelly, a 5’H ” guard, Jaison Stiff, a 6’3\ forward, 5’9\ guard Tory Taylor, S’S\ guard Brad Doig, 5’10H guard Shawn Allen, 6' forward Rich Ferris, and 6’4\ center Andy Benson will be looked upon for leader­ ship in their final season. Jun­ iors Nick Miller, e 5’H\ guard, and 6* forward Dan Ferris, along with sophomore guard Trent Taylor round out the squad. Donnelly led the team in s p r­ ing last year with 14.6 points per game and is noted as one of the most dangerous three-point shooters in the conference. Donnelly connected on 57 triples last season. Stiff was the second leading scorer with 12.2 PPG, followed by Ferris at 12.1. Stiff pulled down 5.5 rebounds pergameand led the team with an 80 percent free throw percentage. The guard trio ofTaylor, Doig, and Allen give the Beavers a lightning quick backcourt that can distribute the ball, or pull up and hit outside shots at any given time. Taylor averaged 8.7 points a game last year, includ­ ing 45 percent of his three-point shots. Doig averaged 9.6 points a contest and will create oppor­ tunities for teammates with his driving ability. Allen saw lim­ ited time last season, but will be CRAIG FINBERG called upon to add punch from the guard spot Benson also saw limited time last year and will usehisheight tooffsetsome of the bigger teams that the Beavers willface. Miller, Dan Ferris, and Trent Taylor spent last season on the junior varsity team. “We are excited with the re­ turning players firom last year's team,” noted Finberg. “We feel with the talent we have we can be as good as anybody.” 1 want to raise the expecta­ tion of the players,” added Fin­ berg. “We will expect more of ourselves and we will not be afraid to fail. Our goal is to win the state championship, but we will take, care ofthe little things along the way. The program is in place and we will give it our best effort” “Our keys for the season will be to stay free from injuries, play solid defense, have our players sacrifice for the good of the team, and to find the right team chemistry,” said Finberg. “We plan to attack teams defensively, push the ball up the R e y n o l d s n a m e d A l l - D i s t r i c t Jenny Reynolds,ajuniorfrom Twin Bridges, has been named to the NAIA District 12 volley­ ball team.

Back-drafting, especially during the coldest months of a Montana winter, has been labeled the “Quiet Killer.” Back-drafting occurs when the by-products of combustion in a fireplace, stove or gas fur­ nace are drawn back into the room, in place of fresh air for ■ combustion, rather than being exhausted to the outside. It is, according to the Safety Council, a serious problem as the by­ products may contain carbon, monoxide. Fireplace and wood-burning stoves, especially, require a lot of air while burning. Many well- sealed homes, the product of weatherization practices such as floor and not be afraid to shoot the ball if it's a good shot,” noted Finberg. “We can hit shots in- ■ side and outside, and that should make us a tough team to de­ fend.” “If we can utilize our quick­ ness and take a lot of shots then it will be to our advantage.” “The conference should be very tough. Livingston and Anaconda played for the state championshiplastseason so they know what it takes to make it to the biggame. Havre and Brown­ ing should be very tough-by tournament time.” - - “I feel it will be an exciting' year for basketball in Dillon,” concluded Finberg. The junior varsity roster will consist of 11 sophomores: Greg Lemelin, Tod Petersen, Kasey Briggs, Damon Weekes, Larry Erickson, Scott Schield, Todd Keridell, Jay Holt, Jared Rora­ baugh* Will Taylor, and Pat Bailey.

It may be necessary to add a combustion air source to pre­ vent back-drafting. To check for back-drafting, the council says, start a fire in the fireplace on a cold day. After a few minutes, carefully touch the vent pipe of the fumace, hot waterheaterorany space heater. If the vent is cold, the fireplace could be creating a dangerous back-draft. Turn down the thermostats and water heater temperature controls immedi­ ately and let the fireplace tum out The council advised people with a back-draft problem to contact a heating and plumbing contractor or the local utility company for further assistance.

If it is possible, I look for a better season thisyear than last We will strive to improve on the personal improvement aspect” “We will try. to play within our own capabilities,” added Mailey.
