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.
Paps A-11 DILLON Tallit - Wednesday May 14 2014 Donkey backwards Jessica Weimer of the Murdochs team performed a unique reverse pivot during the Sorop- tomist Donkey Basketball event last Tuesday at B.W. Lodge Gymnasium. Weimer's donkey led the charge down court and the rider spun around backwards to receive a pass from her teammate in a game against R.E. Miller & Sons. Despite the unique play. Murdochs lost the game. A team of Dillon Volunteer Firemen won the six -team event. J P Plutt photo Daines introduces bill to add certainty for East Bench users Representative Steve DaMes has introduced legislation to provide farmers and ranchers in southwestern Montana with much -needed certainty as the East Bench Irrigation District works to negotiate a new con- tract to support its water needs. H.R. 4508, the East Bench Irrigation District Contract Extension Act, will extend the Bureau of Reclamation contract on the Clark Canyon Dam and Reservoir near Dillon—provid- ing the East Bench Irrigation District with needed certainty as it works to negotiate a long- term contract. \Montana's farmers and ranchers rely on a stable water supply, but all too often, it's uncertain where that water will come from. It makes no sense to needlessly add to that un- certainty,\ Daines stated. \The East Bench Irrigation District provides a critical source of wa- ter for 28,000 acres of land—it's critical that the district has the time it needs to negotiate a long- term contract that will ensure Montana farmers and ranchers have a steady source of water for years to come.\ This federal project annu- ally supplies irrigation water for 28,000 acres within the East Bench Irrigation District (EBID) in Beaverhead and Madison Counties. The contract for the irrigation district was executed in 1958—however, it expired on December 31, 2005 and the district has since been operating under a short term extensions of a 2006 contract which has not yet been finalized by the Montana Water Court. DaMes' bill will extend the contract for through 2019, which will allow the irrigation district time to continue to negotiate the contract, while also keeping the dam in operation and ensuring irrigation for 28,000 acres of farmland. H.R. 4508 is similar to S. 1965, legislation introduced earlier this year by former Montana Senator Max Baucus.
