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.

With so many events, it should be a fun and exciting Homecoming for all. Trisha Yearwood and Lonestar Play Dillon By John McCaslin This Labor Day, Dillon was treated to a special musical event. In conjunction with the annual Jaycee Rodeo, Dillon played host to country music stars Trisha Yearwood and Lonestar at the Beaverhead County High School gymnasium. The show was a spectacular and entertaining way to bid summertime farewell. Though certainly used to playing slightly larger venues in bigger towns and cities, both Lonestar and Yearwood seemed to give it their all and have a good time. Lonestar opened the show with selections from their latest album \Crazy Nights\ as well as a few numbers from their previous outing, \Lonestar.\ The audience was enthusiastic, even if not totally familiar with some songs. This was explained when, during a break between songs, one of the members of the band asked how many people in the audience owned \Crazy Nights.\ The usual roar of the crowd quieted considerably at that point, with only a few people confirming they had the album. The rest of Lonestar's set was dominated by songs that have received frequent radio airplay, ending with their hit \No News.\ Lonestar started the show well, but it was only a taste of things to come. From the moment Trisha Yearwood took the stage singing \X's and O's\ the audience was ecstatic. Yearwood is touring to promote her new greatest hits album \Songbook and almost all of the songs in her set have gotten considerable airplay in the last few years. The audience was familiar enough with them to sing along, especially with hits like \She's in Love with the Boy.\ Yearwood was energetic and friendly toward the audience, especially the children seated directly in front of the stage. (This was, in itself notable. All children under the age of eight in the audience were invited to sit in front, presumably nut only for visibility reasons, but also to place them in the dead zone between the speaker stacks where the noise level is much lower). Finally, with the time for the second show drawing near, Yearwood took the time to. perform one encore, closing with \Small Town.\ In all, the evening was . wonderful, especially for an area where big-name entertainers are few and far between. I found myself wishing I had the money and the energy to see the second show as well. Hopefully next year's rodeo will bring more entertainers of Yearwood's and Lonestar's caliber.
