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 B-2 Dit.i.0% - Wednesday. May 14. 2014 BCHS tennis team applies dedication and determination to carve victories By M.P. Regan Dillon Tribune staff Dedication and determina- tion formed a potent pairing for a shorthanded Dillon tennis team this past week. The Beavers saw a fresh- man will her way onto the varsity squad and a debut win, a senior boy battle to five wins in 24 hours and a veteran girls doubles duo begin peaking for the Divisional Tournament set to start later this week. Freshman Jazmin Rivera worked and worked and worked her way into a spot on the no. 3 BCHS girls doubles team at the May 6 Dillon Tri Meet against Corvallis and Anaconda, pairing with sophomore Amber Sitz to claim a hard-fought, marathon three -set win over Anaconda's no. 3 team. \Jazmin had been working her way up the ladder on the JV squad. She maybe is not the most polished player yet, but her attitude and will are so strong and she worked so hard that she climbed her way above some of the girls who maybe have had better skills than she does,\ said Dillon Tennis Head Coach Lois Woodard, who was forced by multiple player absences to shuffle her lineups at the Dillon Tri and last weekend's Fergus Invitational in Lewistown. Rivera and Sitz won 6-2, 4-6, 10-8 to not only record Rivera's first -ever varsity win, but wrap up the 4-3 team win for the Dillon girls over Anaconda at the Dillon Tri last Tuesday. \Jazmin and Amber had to wait for a long time to play. The no. 3 doubles match is the last one to be played, so they had to be patient and stay calm,\ said Woodard, who that day sent an- other freshman, Mikaela Trang, onto the court to play her first varsity match, and saw \IYang team with Alison Anderson to earn Dilon's only win on the day against the powerful Corvallis team in a 7-5, 6-4 victory. \All the coaches are trying to put out their strongest line- ups this time of the season, so that was really a good win for Mikaela and Alison.\ Dillon senior Michael Thomp- son picked up the Beaver boys only win that day with a 3-6, 6-2, 10-7 triumph over Anaconda's no. 2 singles player. A few days later at the four - team Fergus Invitational in Lew- istown, Thompson notched five wins in five matches, including Dillon's only singles win against the formidable Hardin team. \Michael Thompson got a game ball for that—for hang- ing in there so well, physically and mentally,\ said Woodard, who also awarded a game ball to Beaver senior John Bodnar for playing six matches in Lewistown. Bodnar and Thompson notched a 6-0, 6-1, doubles win over Butte Central's no. 3 doubles duo, with Bodnar also getting a 7-6 (7-5), 7-6 (7-5) double tiebreaker doubles win Gearing up The Dillon tennis teams are focusing on playing their best tennis of the year with the South- western A Divisional tennis tournament on the schedule this weekend.

Dillon's no. 1 girls doubles team, Holly Hansen & Taryn Judge, paired up for a pair of wins in Lewiston, dropping only a single game during their tri- umphs over their Butte Central and Lewistown counterparts. \We've been putting in more time at practice this week,\ said Hansen, who teamed with Judge at last year's Divisional Tournament to win tbird place by taking the back draw. \We know our best play is to come and hope we can show that at Divisionals.\ Hansen also put in some extra practice with her ground strokes by playing singles matches at the Dillon Tri last Tuesday, when Judge was up in Helena for Youth Legislature. \Our kids are involved in so many different school activities that the team can sometimes get stretched a little thin,\ said Woodard, who also lost players in the past week due to family obligations. \Some of our kids are part of ranch families, and that just comes first. Parker Jones was helping his grandfather with branding this weekend,\ said Woodard of the regular on this season's boys varsity team who couldn't make it to the Lewis- town tournament. \He really wanted to be there, but his heart was with his grandfather.\ Woodard thinks the dedica- tion and toughness her players develop in their busy lives could serve them well at the Divi- sional Tournament, which kicks off tomorrow in the Bitterroot Valley, where the Dillon girls will compete in Corvallis and the BCHS boys will play their matches in Hamilton. \Our girls will be facing weaker competition at Division- als than our boys will, so our girls have a better chance of going further, even though they are young and new to varsity, ex- cept for Taryn and Holly,\ said Woodard, whose no. 1 and no. 2 girls singles slots are currently filled by freshman Adrianne Southam and the surging Tessa Sawyer, who worked her way up from the no. 4 to no. 2 spot during the season and picked up multiple wins last week. \Tessa and Adrianne are doing better and better every week,\ commented Woodard, a nationally ranked player in her age group. \Both have good technical skills and good court sense and amazing poise for freshmen players.\ Woodard thinks her boys team, which will face much more seasoned competition in the Bitterroot, will face a stern test at divisionals. \But having said that, our boys, especially in singles, are lookiug much stronger than earlier in the season,\ said Wo- odard, who saw a quirk in the calendar reduce the 2014 high school tennis season to just nine weeks. \I think it will boil down to how mentally tough they are. They have skills, but they are young and don't have the depth of competitive experience that many of the boys players from Corvallis, Stevensville and Butte Central enjoy,\ said Wood- ard, who will be heading to the Bitterroot tomorrow at 6:30 a.m. for coaches' meeting to make up the draw for the Divisional Tournament. \Our boys are up against a difficult challenge, but I defi- nitely feel they are up to it.\ Public comment by FWP sought on commerical fishing rules Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking public com- ment on changes to commercial use rules at state fishing access sites, wildlife management ar- eas and state parks. The commercial use adminis- trative rules were originally ad- opted by the former MP Com- mission in 2006 and amended in 2009 to establish policy and permit requirements for com- mercial uses on all FWP land. In 2013, the State Parks and Recreation Board and the Fish & Wildlife Commission were established Rather than creat- ing separate sets of commer- cial use administrative rules. the board and commission are jointly proposing amendments to the commercial use rules that would continue to apply to all MP land. Among the changes are proposals to: 1) clarify that commercial fishing access site permits are not valid at state parks; 2) no longer require permits for individual com- mercial photographers; 3) list the grounds for which a com- mercial use permit could be suspended or revoked; 4) allow a permit holder to qualify for a fee adjustment by donating all proceeds beyond expenses from an activity or event; and 54671 . 0 Executive Golf Course Ciallagiap & Wipe 10 Hob Came Aed Dip* Rom MEN'S GOLF HITE TUESDAYS Tee -Oft 6 pm Sharp No Teams - Different rormat eack week.

Montana agrees not to issue elk -kill permits (AP)— Montana officials have The concession was made agreed not to issue any elk -kill \in the interest of working with permits this season after a legal your clients to seek an agree - challenge to their plan to reduce able resolution to the lawsuit,\ the spread of disease to cattle. Hagener said in the letter to The Park County brucellosis plaintiffs' attorney J. Devlan plan approved by the Montana Geddes. Fish and Wildlife Commission last month aims to separate elk and cattle to prevent the spread of the disease, which can cause cattle to abort their calves. The plan allows the state to issue elk kill permits to land- owners or to pay for elk -proof fencing in the spring, when the chance of disease transmission is the greatest. But after a conference call with the attorneys for two sportsmen's groups that filed a lawsuit Wednesday challeng- ing the plan, Fish, Wildlife and Parks director Jeff Hagener wrote a letter saying the agency won't issue any kill permits through May 15. The plan does not allow per- mits to be issued after that date. No landowners had applied for a permit as of May 8, FWP of- ficials said. Geddes, who represents the Skyline Sportsmen's Association and Anaconda Sportsmen's Club, said Hagener's pledge is a start to further discussions, but it does not mean the groups plan to drop their lawsuit. \We are hoping to try to coor- dinate with FWP to discuss the concerns our clients have in the complaint,\ Geddes said. The lawsuit asks a Helena judge to block the implementa- tion and enforcement of the en- tire brucellosis plan. It alleges the FWP and the Fish and Wild- life Commission overstepped their authority by adopting it, and that wildlife officials did not undergo the detailed environ- mental review required under state law. The state has not filed a re- sponse to the lawsuit. Sleepy Hollow adds men's league Sleepy Hollow Golf Course men a chance to hit the course and Driving Range has started on the 10 -hole layout.
