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.

USING TECHNOLOGY TO WATCH THE OLYMPICS By STACEY FALDETTA newsernsubretortorg T he Winter Olympic Games are in full swing and, as always, millions around the world are glued to their televisions and electronic devices to share in the excitement of global competition. The first modern Olympic Games were held in Athens in 1896, and were first televised in 1936 while Berlin hosted the friendly competition. Obviously, not many people had access to television that early in history, and it was only viewed by a handful of people. The first year regular households were able to view the Games was 1948, when they were held in London. The estimated number of viewers for those Olympic Games was several hundred thousand.

VOTE @ poll.msubretortorg ASNLEI TW1FOBD cultuir l flisule t a t i e nt t n i rtk German restaurant Kuckucksei (coo- cooks-eye) has a strange name, but delicious food. It's a big of a gag to put it like this, but it couldn't be truer. They are located on 111 S. 24th St West in the Rimrock Mini Mall and are open every day, excluding Sundays, from 11am-9pm. If you're looking to spend your lunch hour relaxing and eating some extremely filling food, then this is the place to be. The atmosphere is old-fashioned with an open room. You'll sit at a table with a clean red linen, a fresh flower center piece, and wicker chairs. Each of the menu items show a unique and genuine ethnicity; they are all in German. However, there is an English description and a number to reference it. You aren't required to trip over foreign vowel and consonant patterns to order a meal. Kuckucksei offers simple things like grilled cheese and tomato soup for those less interested in something exotic. Another mild option is the breaded pork burger with lemon mayonnaise. The lemon mayo adds flavor without becoming an egg and vinegar sandwich and the breaded pork is crispy, warm, and seasoned perfectly.

And while it is great to strap on your gear and hit the slopes, do you ever wish for a change in your ski trip that won't break the bank? Then Red Lode Mountain Resort has the attraction for you. Red Lodge is lucky enough to host the U.S. Airbag during its Winter '14 tour titled 14 Seconds of Fame. What is this airbag you may ask and why make a fuss about it? This bag will give you a new challenge, a new adventure, a new thrill and no new bruises! The 50 by 50 foot airbag is made to provide a soft landing for a very large jump specially crafted just for the occasion. Located on the lower end of Miami Beach (the shortest and easiest of all the runs), the giant airbag allows you to practice your jumps or try them for the first time. \It's popular,\ says Jeff Carroll from Red Lode Mountain Resort. \It attracts all ages and abilities.\ This means if you are a seasoned skier or snowboarder you can work on your wildcat or tamedog (cartwheel- like back and front flips) but even if you are a beginner such as myself you can catch some air— and it's okay if you don't land it like a pro.
