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.

Post 20, American Legion Agents begin Nevada City appraisal By J o h n B a rrow s Appraisers began their work last week in determining the value of Nevada City and its possession s, Bovey Restorations Manager Kirk Hansen said Fri day. Hansen voiced his disappoint ment with the state legislature, noting Nevada City “got in the middle of the biggest power play of the year.\ That decision, Hansen said, “put a lot more pressure” on the outcome of the Virginia City acquisition by the National Park Service. T h e National Park Service is real big on partnerships,” Hansen said, and ”it would have been easier” if the state had acquired Nevada City. “I hope it didn’t relay the wrongmessage.” The whole affair, Hansen added, had left him “totally shell shocked.” Hansen noted that both to wns are extremely valuable from a historical standpoint, Nevada City from the state’s point of view and Virginia City for na tional and world history. “Nobody wanted to come to the West,” H ansen said, except forgold. “Of th e 360parks in the National P ark Syatom, not one illustrates the gold boom of the West” T h e people of Montana need to get together,” H ansen said, to show the P ark System that the legislature's decision didn’t rep resent the whole state. Hansen warned that much of the value of the properties lies with the artifacts. “If the con tents are separated from the buildings, I will not have done my job.\ If that occurs, all th a t will remain will “be another Ban- nack, or a Colorado casino. T ie biggest thing is to not ssparate one of the world’s largest an tique collections.” Hansen praisedhisboss, Ford Bovey, for h is patience in the middle of th e present situation. “Ford h as exhausted every pos sible means. They came to us mid le t «ado H (try to raise state funding) i l ^ t lit t^MHpddU-ef Virginia City and N itrada City will be open for one final season, Hansen said “We encourage everyone to come this summer so they are able to see this won derful time machine.” T h e address is Virginia City Preservation Alliance, Box 55, Virginia City, MT 59755 All do nations are tax deductible. o o o Three tables o f bridge played Men day.
