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.

Page A-6 - Dillon Tribune - Wednesday, April 26, 1995 Swysgood, Tash disappointed in Nevada City decision By Mark Heinz Both area legislators said they were disappointed by the action, or lack thereof, that left the future of Nevada City in question at the end of the latest session in Helena. The m a tter was a “last minute disappointment,” Rep­ resentative Bill Tash, (R-Dillon) said. Senator Chuck Swysgood, (R-Dillon) said it was a mistake “to let a valuable piece of Mon­ tana history slip away from us.” The problem was that find­ ing a way to fund the site “got tied up in politics the last couple days of the session,” Swysgood said. An effort to secure state bonding authority to purchase Nevada City and the Great Falls Lewis and Clark Expedition tourist center failed in the House during the session’s last hours. The plan would have used revenue from the state’s bed tax to repay the bonds for the purchases. An attempt to tack the plan onto House Bill 15, which in­ cluded $32.5 millon for repairs to the Capitol and other state buildings, did not make it be­ fore an adjournment of the ses­ sion was called. An earlier ef­ fort, which would have used $3 millon from the state’s Coal Trust Funds, also failed. Tash said he really could not under­ stand why the Coal Trust ef­ forts failed because “the coal tax has been broken into quite a few times” for other projects. He added that the plan to fund Nevada City and the Lewis and Clark Center would have used only interest money from the Coal Trust, leaving the fund it­ self untouched. Although “there was nobody wanting to claim they were against funding the historical sites,\ it seemed that “everybody wanted to get on the bandwagon at the expense of somebody else” as the deadline for a decision drew near, Tash said. Swysgood said it did not make sense to leave Nevada City and the Lewis and Clark project unfunded when House Bill 15 provided money to pre­ serve the Capitol and other his­ toric sites. He also said the whole sce­ nario was disappointing because neither the coal tax idea nor the bond repayment plan would have ended up costing the state any money. One problem, he said, is that there were efforts by some to split Nevada City and the Lewis and Clark Cen­ ter into separate issues. This was motivated purely by politics, he said, and “I just couldn’t play politics that way.” He said plenty of hard work has gone into the Lewis and Clark center, and he supported both it and the preservation of Ne­ vada City. Miles for Meals run nets funds A small group of runners and walkers trekked the five mile course, from Park View Acres Care and Rehabilitation Center to the cemetery and back to raise money for the Dillon Meals on Wheels project. Seeking pledges, the runners and walkers garnered nearly $2,000 to help fund the program. Meals on Wheels, a govern­ ment program, still requires pri­ vate Rinding to allow those who cannot afford it to get the meals, which are delivered every day to the homes of the elderly and disabled. United Way of Beaver­ head County also helps to fund the program. The project is also actively supported by the Beaverhead Allied Senior Services program. Barb Egan, administrator at Park View Acres, helped coordi­ nate the annual fund raising event. Getting ready Barb Egan, administrator of Park V iew Acres C are and Rehabilitation C enter, with her grandchild on her back, helped coordinate walkers and runners in the annual Meals on Wheels trek to raise money for the Meals on Wheels program.
