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.

Plutt Dillon Tribune staff Beaverhead County Election Ad- ministrator Debbie Scott reported to the Beaverhead County Commission- ers that the election totals balanced following the mandatory election canvas on Monday. One outcome of the primary election was that Lima, Dillon and Beaverhead County voters have called for a local government review of all three jurisdictions. The mem- bers of each review commission will be elected in the November general election. Because the vote for the county government review finished within five votes following the canvas, any citizen can petition the county for a recount within five days of the can- vas, or by June 23. In other commission action, the county awarded the fuel bids for the sheriff's department, the county shop in Dillon, the county shop in Grant and the county landfill to Brown & Thompson Oil. In each case, Brown & Thompson submitted a lower bid than Rocky Mountain Supply, the only other bidder. The commissioners adopted a new Weed Management Plan for 2014- 15 and accepted for review a new Beaverhead County Safety Pan. The safety plan will be reviewed by vari- ous entities, including legal staff and insurance providers, before consider- ation for vote by the commissioners in the fall. SD #10 stands pat on bullying By M.P. Regan Dillon Tribune staff After hearing a lot on the topics over the previous month, the Dillon School District #10 Board of Trustees at its June meeting last week decided to stick with its current approach to bullying and middle school gradua- tion ceremonies. The topic of nearly an hour of discussion at the May SD 010 Board meeting, bullying was placed on the Unfinished Business portion of the agenda for the June 10 meeting. Several parents attended SD #10's Board meeting in May to relate their children's traumatic experiences with bullying in Dillon schools. The parents reported that the bullying their children endured had caused recurring nightmares, forced trans- fers to other school systems and even inspired the writing of suicide notes. \Something needs to change,\ urged one of the parents of a bully- ing victim. But the SD #10 administrators said last week that they saw no need to change the District's current bullying policies and practices. \Honestly this is my personal opinion. 1 don't know that initiating another new program or adding another program or doing anything more than what we are already do- ing,\ began SI) 010 Superintendent Dr. Glen Johnson \is going to change what's going on. I'm satisfied with the way our District is handling bul- lying.\ Parkview Elementary School Prin- cipal Greg Fitzgerald agreed with Johnson's assessment. \We have a specific approach as to how we teach bullying,\ said Fitgerald, whose son WI graduated from Dillon Middle School last year. \We talk about it at assemblies. It's addressed all the time \I think the biggest thing is: hul- Continued to page A-8 111111 I 01605 1311.0 0 ..••••••••., 683-2331 • Ntikn. Nil • I) EI)ITORCOMI I 0 VIP I l'.1
