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.

I RIM sa - Wednesday May 14 2014 New Montana hail insurance process in place MORE MAIL CONTINUED FROM PAGE A-4 Clean up the park To the editor, I write this with some frustration, and hope- fully, not as a scold. I'm a walker, so the park and streets surrounding the downtown are familiar territory. I have two concerns: (1) dog droppings from dogs being walked by their owners and not cleaned up, and (2) the park right in the middle of Dillon where the trash can on the northwest corner has been removed, and the mistaken idea that this is a dog park for locals and visitors. I have spoken to several people in Dillon who are in a position to provide posts with bags for dog walkers in the park; to date their assurance that they would look into this (the YMCA grounds, as well as most any city in Montana address this hygienic issue) has garnered no response. When I called the school district that is responsible for this park I was told that to take on a project like this would take away from programs for children; I would like to offer that a clean and healthy park is certainly in the best interest of children, as well as the many of us who enjoy this area for leisure and events. I am hoping, that if my concern is shared, it will energize a service group or any other entity that thinks Dillon is worth this effort. Take the war to China To the editor, According to Pete Bengeyfield, only those who are progressive liberals have all the solutions to keep our society functional. Isn't that what we've had for the past 6 years? The lying, manipulating labor figures, betraying our allies all over the world, the shunning of Congress, the scandals and their cover-ups, the failure to send aid to a diplomatic consulate that was under attack for 7 hours, the phony blame for that attack, Congres- sional responsibility to make the laws was taken over by the president, Americans being spied upon by their own government, the conservative voters refused the tax exemption that allowed them to participate in the elections and then those responsible taking the fifth when in front of the Congressional hearings. And he wants to con- tinue keeping the liberal progressives in control. As for the climate change, why are almost one-half of the scientists who started this bogey man rant, now denying they had anything to with all the memos that are coming out of Europe. Those memos are proving that there are more financial schemes behind the climate change. Almost as soon as the scares started, companies Val Neeley Dillon had already been formed by Al Gore and other enviros, to correct the the climate change through manufacturing filters, producing enthanol, mak- ing coal burning plants, change the mechanic sof the pollutants leaving the plants and making millions in the appearances of care. Why didn't the enviros push for a chemical to kill the pine beetle 40 years ago when it became known? Why won't you let dead trees be harvested for whatever they will bring in the timber indus- try? There is more ice in the Arctic than before, the polar bears are increasing. montana just had the 4th longest period between the 75 degrees in September 2013 and the 75 degrees that we now have on 1 May 2014. Remember those saloons that Japan sent over in WWII? Those air currents now carry the thick smog from China and India to North America. Peking residents can't see 10 feet in some of the smoggiest days so why don't the enviros all move there and \make those people the object of all this global warning?? On the way, sell all your polluting planes. Bill Hanley Twin Bridges Lawmakers, governor's staff meet on Medicaid HELENA, May 9 (AP) - Gov. Steve Bullock's staff has been discussing Medicaid expansion options with some legislators and health-care and business representatives. The Democratic governor said Friday the discussions aren't driven by him but by lawmakers who heard from their community about the importance of the expansion. Lee Newspapers of Montana reports Republican Sen. Ed Buttrey of Great Falls is part of the group. He says the goal is to find a way to provide cheaper costs, better medical service and a healthier population. Buttrey and others in the coalition say they want to come up with a plan to be enacted by the 2015 Legislature or earlier if lawmakers meet in special session. The Republican -led Legislature in 2013 rejected a plan that would have expanded Medicaid to cover about 70,000 more low-income residents Purchasing a policy, pre- mium rates, and the coverage available to Montana producers has changed this year for the Montana State Hail Insurance Program.
