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.

The governor acted on the nomination by the Beaverhead .National Forest of the Scout troop for its work since 1987 on the Lake Agnes Trail, 20 miles northwest of Dillon, according to Barry Hicks, the Beaverhead National Forest’s district ranger in Dillon. Hicks says the Scouts “adopted” the trail andhave done a good job of maintaining it. The - work enabled Scouts to work on. merit badges while the Forest Service was able to keep eight miles of trail in good shape at no expense, Hicks said. “The boys have cleared downed trees, installed erosion bars, rebuilt stream crossings, removed trash and in a few places moved the trail to better locations,” Hicks said. Each year federal and state agencies send in worthy proj­ ects to the governor's office, to compete for \Take Pride in America” natiorial awards. Governor Stephens com­ mended the Scouts’ work, say­ ing it embodied the program’s goals of “voluntary stewardship to protect and enhance our natu­ ral and cultural resources” The national awards are ex- pectedtobeannouncedinMarch, with the national awards cere­ mony usually held in late July.
