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 The prosecutor, the victim and almost 25 family members and friends in court, the probation officer and even the defendant felt 10 years was a fair sentence for Fifth Judicial District Judge Loren Thcker to give Joseph Clinton Goulet on the charge of felony kidnapping. To be fair, Goulet and his attor- ney requested that seven of the 10 years be suspended, but Judge Tucker ruled on the side of everyone else in attendance at Beaverhead County Courthouse and sentenced Goulet to a full 10 year term with Montana State Prison. The sentencing hearing for Goulet Tuesday morning followed a change of plea and plea agreement entered on March 11, between Beaverhead County Attorney Jed Fitch and Continued to page A-3 The long walk Convicted kidnapper Joseph Clinton Goulet leaves District Court for the Beaverhead County Jail and awaits a decision from the Montana State Prison on his residential arrangements for the next ten years.

Regan Dillon Tribune staff The Dillon City Council seemed to reverse course last Wednesday on its previously -stated criteria for street closure requests, before asserting those standards do not actually ex- ist, just yet. The Council voted 4-1 (with one abstention) to approve the street closure request by Barry and Mary Anne Briggs for South Washington Street between Morse and Orr streets for a July 4 family reunion from 8 a.m. to noon. \We're having a family reunion at my house,\ explained Briggs, who lives at 217 E. Orr. \There will be 25 people there all day, so I wanted to ask the City Council if they could close the street for that day for the safety of my family and other people in that vicinity.\ added Briggs, noting that he had talked to his neighbors and had submitted a street closure application and the required $250 cleanup deposit to the city, along with proof of liability insurance for the event. \I understand that this isn't like the usual thing you do. I'm just asking that you do this. It's a one-time thing and not a big deal. I just think when you get that many people together, there's going to be some congestion. We are going to have four -wheelers there, and I just would like the city to approve that.\ Before casting the lone dissenting vote on the Briggs' street closure request. Ward 1 Councilperson Bob Cottom urged his fellow representa- tives to consider consistency by re- minding them that a similar request last year for a street closure for a private graduation party had actually been turned down by the Council. \The City Council said 'No,' and somebody brought up that it has to he for a public function to close,\ commented Cottom, who also brought up a recently rejected street closure request for a private wedding recep- tion in Dillon. When the Council was asked if the city had any concrete criteria for street closure requests related to private vs. public functions, Council - person Bill Shafer said he believed the Judiciary Committee was in the process reviewing the issue. \We looked at the application and the information that goes out to the applicant and it was not listed in there to where it has to be open to the public,\ City Director of Operations J.S Turner said of the street closure request standards. \1 think that was discussed during the process when we were putting this application process together, but that never did get in the application materials.\ added Thrner. Turner revealed that he had put a pair of additional conditions on the Briggs street closure request: that the center of the closed street remain clear for the passage of emergency Continued to page A-3 11111 mums 911141 SI 1t i<1111 to I ui i)11.1.0N i • ItIli(,Nt, 101)AV WC; 233 I Ni \ II it It II) I 1)1\101t ('1)11.1.0V11(11111 \L.( OM
