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.

However, these jobs may not provide the easy money as promised as shown in Years later, dogged journalists sniffed a story and tracked down DeNoble, who agreed to meet under cloak-and- dagger circumstances.

We both chose the blue cheese and ham croissant to eat, and I had the Earl Grey tea with cream, my usual. The menu was ample, with salads and wraps, lattes and teas, as well as the sweet treats. The air outside was extraordinarily cold that morning, so a quaint little cafe table in the sun was completely heavenly. The food was delicious.
