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.

Paga A-14 - DiUoa Tribune - Wednesday, Aprii 26, 1935 Woman killed in single car accident Mark Heinz A vehicle rollover arid cold, high water in the Big Hole River proved to be a fatal combina­ tion for a California woman re­ cently. Sheila A. Page, 22, appar­ ently drowned on Friday after her 1992 Chevy pickup rolled off a bridge and sank, top first, into the Big Hole along high­ land road southwest of Wisdom. The accident occurred at about 11:40 p.m. Beaverhead County Sheriffs Deputy Frank Kluesner, II was the first law enforcement officer on the scene and was able to pull Page from the truck, al­ though subsequent attempts to resuscitate her failed. Kluesner said Page’s boy­ friend, who had been driving another vehicle just ahead of her pickup, had already at­ tempted to rescue her, but was washed down stream and left the scene to go find help. Kluesner said that when he arrived, the pickup was upside down and completely sub­ merged in about 10 feet of wa- Relative Continued from pago A-1 rubble and destruction. Broxterman would be 43 on May 1, Murlene said, and had worked 15 years with the Secret Service, including undercover work in Oregon helping to break the black market for medicinal trees. Broxterman’s wife, Cammy, and their three children, Aaron, 12; Cassy, 10, and Jared, 8, are in Oklahoma City, along with other relatives. Murlene urged Beaverhead County people to contribute to the American Red Cross or Sal­ vation Army, who are working with survivors of the blast and relatives o f those dead or miss­ ing. Locally, donations can be given at the Sweetwater Coffee. Donations will be forwarded to the agencies, according to Sarah Zitzer and John Rawlings. ter. He also said local men Monte Clemow and Greg Dominitz were present at the scene and assisted him during the rescue attempt After using another vehicle to pull the pickup into more shallow water, Clemow and Dominitz tied a rope around Kluesner, who waded into neck- deep water to get Page. The water was extremely cold, Kluesner said, and “I knew that I had less than a minute to do what I needed to do before I couldn’t move my arms or legs anymore.* After breaking the driver’s side window with a tamping rod, Kluesner said he began to go underwater and pull at Page. He said she came free after his second attempt, al­ though he could not tell whether or not she had been wearing a seat belt. Kluesner said he immedi­ ately started C.P.R., bearing in mind that cold-water drowning victims have been successfully revived after spending as long as two hours in the water. After about 15 minutes, an ambulance arrived, Kluesner said. Page was taken to Jack- son, where she was transferred to an advanced life-support ambulance and taken to Barrett Memorial Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead. Highway Patrol Officer Mark Malkovich said excessive speed was not a factor in the accident, and added that the incident is still under investigation. Bomb Continuad from pago A-1 Girl Continuad I r a « paga A-1 “The bottom line is every­ thing worked in that little girl's favor,” Reeder said. On Tuesday, Saint Patrick’s personnel reported that the girl was in stable condition, but de­ clined to release her name. light o f recent events, “a person starts to realize how easy these things can happen,” he said. “I don’t know what makes them decide to bomb one place and not the other,” he said, and ab­ solute security is impossible. He added that the county commis­ sion recently requested that the Sheriffs Department draw up a proposal for better all-around security at the courthouse. Gutcheck said that although there is no expert “bomb squad” in the area, each local officer receives basic training in how to recognize and detect explo­ sive devices. The nearest team with extensive training in the dismantling and disposal of ex­ plosives is in Missoula, he said. One of the many informational circulars received regularly at the Beaverhead Development Corporation (BDC) is the monthly newsletter o f the MSU Extension Service Solid Waste and Pollu­ tion Prevention program. The mailing this month contained two articles of especially interesting information. From the Solid Waste Report, February 16, 1995, it was re­ ported that consumers appreciate recycling as long as these ef­ forts don’t end up as fast food wrappers. Nearly 32 percent of 10,000 survey respondents balked at the idea of wrapping ready- to-eat food in recycled paper. The January/February \In Business\ carried an in-depth re­ port on which \green\ (recycled or organic) products sell the best. The first then best sellers included recycled paper toilet paper, recycled paper towels, compact fluorescent light bulbs, Enviromints, Core recycled glassware, non-motorized reel lawn mowers, unbleached and organic cotton clothing, including socks, unbleached and organic towels, and canvas shower curtains. Items classed as less than hot sellers included can crushers, recycling bins, cloth diapers, environmentally responsible disposable dia­ pers, recycled office papers, Clean Wrap (alternative to Saran Wrap), EZ1 (alternative to WD40), Neat & Sweat (alternative to kitty litter), Citrus correction fluid (alternative to White-Out).

Mayor Continuad from pago A-1 “You’re not going to come up will a method that will say a store on Montana Street will pay half the cost and Hie rest of us will pay half the cost,” and still comply with state law, he said. Councilman Martin Brenneke said he thought the tax idea was fair because every­ one uses Montana Street and the other heavily damaged streets, Cottom Drive and Glen­ dale, on an almost daily basis. Wilson further explained the rationale for the tax by saying streets like Montana and Glen­ dale are “arterial streets” that the whole community uses and should pay for. Side streets, like “the street in front of my house” are “neigh­ borhood streets,\ and the bur­ den of maintaining them should fall only on the people who live along them. ‘That’s just a phi­ losophy that I have,\ not a for­ mal city policy, he said, so re­ pair plans were still up for de­ bate. Moore suggested that the council pass a lower tax, such as 42 cents per foot, in order to repair Montana. The other streets he said could be patched up for now, leaving area home and land owners with less of a tax bur­ den. With so many other taxes, such as water, sewer and school levies on the rise “it’s just not going to hurt quite as bad,” to pay a 42 cent tax. Wilson said he had doubts about the idea of patching streets up, because as patches wear out, they leave even bigger holes for the next round of repairs. “If we patch Cottom Drive, it’s going to cost us half again as much,” to patch it again next year. Wilson also pointed out this year would be a good time for mtgor repairs because a hot mix machine is going to be brought into the area for Hie Bannack Road Paving project. The city’s hot mix ma­ chine has several broken parts, he explained, and it is to old to repair, so it will have to be re­ placed. Councilman Scott Jones asked about the fairness of the tax in light of the fact that many people who live near Dillon or elsewhere in the county use the city streets often, but would not have to pay the frontage foot tax. Wilson said, however, that the city gets half o f the vehicle tax money raised by the county, so the cost would even out in the long run. When the vote fi­ nally came, council members Hawkins, Jones, Larry Chaffin and Brenneke voted for the tax. t : _ a ___ 1/ ____ if.’L. csuii uiiun, iuuui c, mine viwi uvu and Jean Bergeson voted against it. This left a tie of four to four, which Wilson broke by voting for the measure. Wilson ex­ plained that the next steps would be publishing a resolu­ tion of intent to put the tax into effect, then to hold another pub­ lic hearing on the matter. A hearing was tentatively sched­ uled for May 17. Regarding the matter of estimating the exact - f repairing the streets, Wii.son said The cart is in seme wavs Well before the horse,” be­ cause procedure dictates that the city must wait to open bids from construction companies. He also said an \escape valve” still rem a ins, because the council’s Street and Alleys Com­ mittee can still recommend against spending the money if, once the bids have been opened, it is found that they are all be­ yond the city’s budget. “You can back off anything until budget­ ing time,” he said. In other business Wednes­ day, the council also voted unanimously to give a parcel of property along East Morse Street to the local Habitat for Humanity chapter. During the meeting, Wilson explained that the property has been long abandoned and deeded to the city, but city hall was not aware of it. When untrimmed tree branches began to fall on the roof of a house next to the prop­ erty, Wilson said the home owner called city hall and re­ quested that the city come trim the trees. The incident prompted a search of records that revealed that the city did indeed own the property, Wil­ son said. Local Habitat for Hu­ manity Chairman Bill Swanson explained to the council that his group would like to build a home, which would be sold to a low-income family, on the prop­ erty.
