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.

Career Day was an unqualified success At least 300 people gathered in Pablo May 11 to be a part of Career Day, either to serve on a panel or sit in the audience. Panel members included Tribal department heads and employees, business owners from on and off the Reser­ vation, and professional people from around the state. The audience was just as varied, comprised of stu­ dents from area high schools and the Kicking Horse Job Corps Center, and folks whose names are on file with the Tribes’ Employment Listing Service. The variety of presentations topped the diversity of the audience, however. They included nine broad categories (each with at least half-a-dozen disciplines represented), plus a special hour-long demonstration and talk by a representative from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. With only one reporter to cover ten panels in seven hours’ time, the Char-Koosta isn’t able to summarize all the categories. Briefly, here are the messages from those presentations we did see: People Helping People - A real need exists in the social worker and counseling fields. Trained Indians, men and women, are needed to serve fellow Indians. A particular need is for Native Americans with Masters degrees, because degree-holders tend to get the jobs where policies are made. Business and Marketing -- Today is not a good time to go into establishing a new business, unless you have a large enough bankroll to avoid borrowing money. “ Interest rates are killing small businesses,” was the message here. Should you go ahead anyway, be prepared to work long hours and pour all the profits back into the business for several years. A positive message came from an SKC computer science instructor. The future he says, is spelled c-o-m-p-u-t-e-r. Technology is such that the machines are getting better, smaller, less expensive and easier to learn to operate. In the not-too-distant future, it will be a rare business indeed that doesn’t have a computer on the premises, or at least access to one. Job opportunities for people with computer training look good and can only get better. The Arts — Rewards in the arts — music, poetry, painting — are mostly personal and private. Very few artists belong to that elite club where they get paid a living wage for their efforts. Mostly, artists create because “ There’s something inside that has to be let out” and because it’s fun. For many, their art is a sideline. It sometimes takes 15 or 20 years of exposure before people will pay for your work.
