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.

. L i f e s t y l e DILLO N T r ib ü n e - Wednesday, December 8, 2004 A - 5 Youth ChalleNGe cadets mentor kids through BBBS program By Elaine Spicer Several cadets with Class XI of the Montana National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Program have cooperated with the Dillon Big Brothers Big Sisters organization in recent months in a special project, creat­ ing relationships between cadets and youths at Parkview Elementary and Dillon Middle schools. Two of the cadets involved, Josh Moore of Corvallis and Jason Kaneen of Kalispell, said they've been enjoying the project immensely. According to Moore, part of the reason he was interested in taking on a \Little\ as they are called, was to help out little kids. \Before in my life, I wasn't really helped out as a kid, so I thought that might've affected some of my bad decisions.\ Both cadets agree it not only provides a sense of accomplishment to forge relationships with younger youths, but, \it's fun\. Both tended to play sports with their littles, with Kaneen playing football, and Moore playing basketball. Kaneen adds, that his little saw quite a bit of improvement over the 11 meeting times they shared. \My little wanted to learn how to play football,\ Kaneen notes. \When we first went out, he wanted to throw a football. He didn't want to play with the other kids because he didn't know how to play.\ \My little joined up with a basketball program,\ notes Moore. \He's going to play next year.\ Other than the fun of playing with an older \kid\, the two cadets Toy drive features KnockAbout During the week of December 5-11, The KnockAbout is the fea­ tured business of the week for the Big Brothers Big Sisters Toy Drive, Bring a new, unwrapped toy to be donated for the Christmas Toy Collection and enter your name to win a prize from The KnockAbout. Don't forget that the KnockAbout has a wide variety of jewelry, clothing and accessories, that any child, especially older children, would love to find under the tree. Toy collection boxes can also be found at Safeway and Kings every day of the week until December 21. felts their littles really got something out of the program. Says Moore, of the sixth grader he met with, \I think he's gotten self esteem. His self respect has gone up. 1 got to know his friends and played with them a little. I tried to stick with my little. But, it was fun to work with them.\ Kaneen agrees, \the kids, they're awesome.\ Both found the young students were particularly interested in the Youth ChalleNGe Program and the reasons why their \bigs” were involved. Both were honest about the decisions that lead to their becoming a part of the Youth ChalleNGe Program, they note. Adds Kaneen, \my little wanted to know what I got in trouble for. I actually didn't. I dropped out of school. But, I got my GED.\ He adds that the kids have noticed the cadets marching by their schools. \We march by and shake the windows,\ says Kaneen with pride. Both cadets say they would like to become more involved with children in the future. Kaneen has a newborn daughter who will be the focus of his efforts, while Moore says he would like to come back and visit his little again. Moore says he learned some things himself from the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. \1 learned that every little kid has their own way of doing things. It's good not to influence them too much and let them do what they're interested in. 1 think 1 learned how to react in some situations.\ Kaneen notes, \1 was surprised by how smart they are. Other than that, I was a human jungle gym out there (during recessJ.\ What else did the cadets learn? Says Moore, \whenever you get the chance to be a companion with someone, do it. I learned how to be a friend.\ „ _ _ _ _ » 0 * MsmSTHAS LynnWestad Business: 406-683-9863 Home: 683-4102 ^ 'the perfect gifts for your wife... ^ • Books • Furniture • Dishes • Paintings • Jewelry • Depression Glass P S I* Antiques S m o r e 236 n.
