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-12 - Dillon Tribune - Wednesday, September 2-4, 1997 News about business and agriculture Museum celebrates Unemployment by phone 50 years of history By John Barrows This week marks the 50th year for the Beaverhead County Mu­ seum , and the museum, along with the Beaverhead Chamber of Com­ merce, is throwing a birthday party. The Beaverhead County Mu­ seum Association was formally organized in 1947, according to the museum’s president, Don Resset. On Saturday, September 27, the museum will plan its golden an­ niversary, starting with a parade from 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., starting at the BCHS B. W. Lodge parking lot. From 1 to 5 p.m. there will be an antique car show on the museum grounds. From 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. there will be children’s activities and games on the museum law, followed by a barbecue from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. A dessert box social and talent show will be held on the museum lawn, followed by a street dance in front of the museum, featuring jitterbug dancing, Boot Scooters, square dancing, the Macarena and the Dillon Junior Fiddlers. A drawing is planned at 7:15 p.m. in front o f the museum for a framed 1920photoofDil!on’smain street and a Charlie Russell print. In addition, a number o f chamber and museum gifts will be drawn for. Music is provided by Boots Country Karaoke. The Beaverhead County Mu­ seum Association was formed in 1947 for the specific purpose of collecting, preserving and exhibit­ ing the historical artifacts of Bea­ verhead County. Plans were made for a fund drive to raise the money to build a long building museum. Land, north o f the Union Pacific depot, was leased from the railroad, as was the sec­ tion now being leased by the city, from the depot south to Reeder Street. A city-wide fund drive was held, headed by a committee of local business owners and managers. The committee traveled through­ out the county, soliciting donations. In the 1960s a second building, the old Torrey Lodge from the Birch Creek area, was donated by Western Montana College and moved into Dillon. From the beginning the Cham­ ber, which was organized in the 1930s, and the Museum were part­ ners in the building, with the Chamber owning half o f the origi­ nal building. That continued until several years ago, when the museum and the chamber agreed to separate quarters for each. The chamber gave up its ownershi p o f half of the original museum building in turn for space in the old Union Pacific Depot, which the museum acquired in 1989. The chamber currently operates the state tourism center out o f the depot, and helped provide some of the matching funds for an upcom- inggrant project that will complete work on much of the old depot building. A major project for the museum’s 50th year is the completion of the second volume of the Beaverhead County History Book, which is being undertaken by the group, with expectations of completion by Christmas. Currently, the museum is headed by a seven-person board of trustees, including Resset, vice- president Marshall Walters, sec­ retary Stan Smith ¡treasurer Sally Dingley, and board members John Barrows, Sally McEldery and Fred Throckmorton. The museum staff is headed by a director of opera­ tions, Candi Whitworth. “We certainly hope people will take the time to help us celebrate our golden anniversary,” Resset said.

Cull f o r C o lor Ilm r h n r e The Department of Labor and Industry has moved state govern­ ment from the granite buildings to the living rooms of unemploy­ ment insurance claimants and the the businesses o f employers. As of October 1, individuals across the state will file unemployment in­ surance claims over the telephone and employers will have one phone number to call to have their un­ employment insurance questions answered. \October 1 marks a new begin­ ning for the Unemployment In­ surance Division,\ stated Pat Haflfey, Commissioner o f the Mon­ tana Department of Labor and Industry. \The telephone centers bring a new and highly improved customer focused, reliable, and convenient way to deliver a vital and valuable government service to all o f Montana.\ According to Haffey, about 40 percent of unemployment insur­ ance claims are already being pro­ cessed through the Billings Un­ employment Insurance Telephone Claim Center. This center covers the eastern half o f the state. The Helena Unemployment In­ surance Telephone Claim Center will handle claims starting Octo­ ber 1 for the western part o f the state which represents the remain­ ing 60 percent of all the unem­ ployment insurance claims filed i the state. The Helena center is anticipated to handle approxi­ mately 36,000 claims per year. The two telephone centers will process about 60,000 claims per year. The Billings Unemployment Insurance Claim Center began operations on a pilot basis on Oc­ tober 1, 1996, serving a seven- county area surrounding Billings. It was expanded July 1, 1997, to serve the eastern half ofMontana. The results from the Billings center show the services have been well received by both employers and claimants. \Claims are being filed and questions answered in less than 6 1/2 minutes,\ stated Jon Moe, Benefits Bureau Chief of the Unemployment Insurance Division. \Claimants have found that being able to call in a claim is more convenient than driving to the nearest Job Service Center.\ In the first nine months o f the Billings pilot center, customer rep­ resentatives provided assistance to 28,327 callers. The Helena center completes the statewide implementation of this customer focused service. The Helena center will serve the coun­ ties of Beaverhead, Broadwater, Deer Lodge, Flathead, Gallatin, Granite, Jefferson, Lake, Lewis and Clark, Lincoln, M adison,. Meagher, Mineral, Missoula, Park, Powell, Ravalli, Sanders and Sil­ ver Bow. People wishing to file claims and employers seeking informa­ tion about claims in these coun­ ties after October 1 will simply pick up their phone and call 40&- 444-2545. They will be connected with a trained customer service representative who can process their claims and requests for in­ formation.
