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.

The mock accident scene was staged at Beaverhead County Fairgrounds on Monday morning. The drill em- phasized the terrible outcome of decisions to drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol or distracted driving from texting or talking on a cellular telelphone. J P Plutt photo Bicycle racers to pass through Dillon in June In June, bicyclists from all over the world will be passing through Beaverhead County. The Trans Am Bike Race and the Tour Divide Race are unsup- ported, nonstop bike races. They both follow routes established by the Adventure Cycling As- sociation in Missoula. For the Trans Am the racers start in Astoria, Ore., and ride to Yorktown, Va., a distance of 4233 miles. As of May 1, just over one hundred riders had signed up. While many cyclists have ridden the Trans America route this is the first \race\. The Tour Divide is an off -road mountain bike race from Banff, Canada to Antelope Wells on the Mexican border, for a total of 2,745 miles. UMW honors Alice Kennedy \The Tree of Knowledge\ window honoring Alice Ken- nedy is to be installed in the Lucy Carson Library tomorrow, Wednesday, May 14 at 4 p.m. Please join us for the dedica- tion of this spectacular work by major Montana stained glass artist Susan Kennedy Som- merfield. The 16 feet wide by 9 feet high leaded glass window is a gift from the Kennedy family. Alice Kennedy was well know for her work in children's the- atre at Montana Western. Balducci to speak at Kiwanis Bitty Balducci of the Ameri- can Cancer Society will be the featured speaker at the Wednesday, May 14 meeting of the Dillon Kiwanis. Balucci will speak on several topics including Relay for Life. The Kiwanis meet every Wednesday at 12 p.m. at the Dillon Elks Lodge in downtown Dillon. The Kiwanis Club of Dillon has been serving our community since 1940 Last year one hundred forty rid- ers took aim at the course record of 15 days. Both races share the distinc- tion of having no organizers, no entry fee and no prizes. They are simply agreed upon times for people to start riding an estab- lished route as fast as they can. The riders may not have out- side support and procure their own food, lodging and repairs. Typically, for the Tour Di- vide, over half of the starting racers do not finish. The two ul- tramarathon cycling races will share the eight miles of County Road 278 between Polaris and Bannock. This is the only place the courses converge. The Trans Am starts on .June 7th. Racers will have ridden almost a thousand miles before they come into Beaverhead County over Chief Joseph Pass. The route then proceeds through Wisdom and Dillon enroute to Twin Bridges, Ennis and West Yellowstone. The Tour Divide begins June 13. The track goes through Wise River, Polaris, past Bannock to Lima and Red Rock Pass. The racers usually spread out and travel solo, no pacelines as in regular bike races. Since the clock never stops they may ride 24 hours a day and can pass any point at any time, usually during daylight. The faster Tour Divide rid- ers may overlap the slower Trans Am riders in Beaverhead County around June 19th or so. Last year the Tour Divide route was washed out by floods in Canada and burned over by fires in New Mexico. One rider has been killed in an automobile accident. An- other was struck by lightning but still finished second. The race is a serious event. As one rider said, \It was miserable and painful and the best thing I've ever done.\ You may follow develop- ments at: Transambikerace. corn, tourdivide.org and, after the races start you may track the riders at trackleaders.com. If you see a racer remain calm, offer encouragement and food American Legion Post updated on outreach Last Wednesday evening Beaverhead American Legion Post 20 hosted Joe Warren, who spoke about the Army Survivor Outreach Services. He is a sup- port coordinator who explained the array of support provided to the survivors in the event of the death of an Army soldier. He will provide assistance to the survivors of other service mem- bers but the Army allows access to the service member's record. He will also guide the spouse of a retired service member when death calls through the paper- work necessary to navigate the systems. If you missed the session you can find more infor- mation on the MT SOS program at www.montanaguard.com/ html/survivor outreach.cfm or by call in (406) 324-5218 or through email at joe.g.warren. ctr@mail.mil. Jayden Child, a Beaverhead County High School student working through the Girl Scouts, talked to the Post about suicide prevention. The recent series of Butte teen-agers committing suicide, the numbers of active duty service men and women committing suicide, and large numbers of veterans commit- ting suicide every day made her talk especially relevant, accord- ing to Post *20 Commander Tom Straugh.
