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.

Most customer’s phones will be on the new line at noon, according to Miner. He suggested using the old telephone numbers until that Ume.

New logo You’ve probably already nouo- ed The Pioneer has a new logo The newspaper masthead was designed and drawn by Big Timber 'artist Jack Hines. The horse- drawn carriage depicted at the top of the page will be seen in actuality at various upcoming events around the community. The carriage will become a symbol of the business. An old-fashioned heading for the newspaper was used during the Centennial year. “Now it’s time for a change,’’ Publisher Dale Oberly said. The new logo will appear, in part, throughout the paper as the carriage, lettering and design are used for headlines and features regularly appearing in print The newspapers “ old\ logo, featuring the “ Pioneer” lettered in bold Branding Iron type and show­ ing the wind-blown Crazy Moun­ tains, first appeared in^thc mid 1970’s. It was also created by Jack Hines for former publisher Larry Lowary. \Although we liked the old logo and received many compliments on it's design, we always felt it was more associated with Larry than with us,\ the newspaper’s editor and co-owner Beccy Oberly said The Oberlys asked Artist Hines to capture the history and honor the name “ Pioneer” implies, while implementing modem design tech­ niques o f” leader” boxes, a place where stories inside the newspaper can be highlighted \We were very pleased that Jack captured our idea on paper and drew for us exactly what we had in mind’’ Mrs. Oberly noted End of an Era It was an end of an era for Harold and Jane Rue this past weekend as they attended the final basketball game of Eastern Mon­ tana College. Their daughter, Patti Jo (Rue) Eubank, was on the girls * squad at the Billings college and it was her final match at the end of the season. The game marked the close of a 17 year period of attending basket­ ball games in which the Rue's children participated That’s a lot of ball games!

The Sports Illustrated January 16 issue features a profile of native son Brent Musburgcr, television sports’ most visible talking head entitled \N o t Just a Pretty Face.\ In the article wnter William Taaffe says: “ For soneone who’s on naUonal TV some 275 hours a year, more than twice as much as Dan Rather and five times as much as Mr T, Musburgcr’s recogmuon factor in rclauve terms is zipi Questionable new lifestyles, the \tyranny of the urgent\ the shifting of thefoundauons- they’re all a part of an cmononal climate which makes many modems feel that they arc \losing their grip.\ But minister Charles R Swm- doll senior pastor of the First Evangelical Free Church in Ful­ lerton, CA. is offering an alterna­ t e to todays dizzying changes, confusing \overchoice and moral uncertainty \There are some fixed points, and you don’t have to be washed away m this tide of confusion.\ Swindoll says in a new film senes called “ Strengthening Your Grip\ The series is to be screened Puzzling isn’t it? He’s been at CBS Sports now for 11 years, nine of them as host of “ The NFL Today\ the granddaddy of pre­ game, halftime and highlight shows. He makes S750.000 a year. He's bright and nice looking He’s as enthusiastic as all getout, always cheerful, just a real upright fellow And he’s a survivor. He’s endured five presidents of CBS Sports, more than a few air- headed at the Evangelical Church, 3rd& Bramble, starting January 15 and each Sunday night through Febru­ ary 19 ( two show times 5:45-6:45 pm. and 7 00-8:00 pm ) The senes, challenging what Swindoll calls \the 80's, a decade cf aimlessness,” is based on his best- selling book by the same title. In the first film which deals with the problem of priorities, Swindoll calls for the recognition of the subtle but essential difference be­ tween the important and \the merely urgent.” While the urgent \always makes the most noise,\ he notes, the important but less noisy issues usually need more attention than our hectic schedules remarks by Phyllis George, the wooden pulchritude of Jayne Kennedy and a celebrated punch to the jaw by Jimmy The Greek.” Later on, he notes: “ For years a lot of folks who know him have suspected that the thing Musbur- ger most wants to be is the next CoselL Not true. Musburger is the conveyor of information, the clas­ sic interlocutor, hardly the show itself. If anything he wants to be the next McKay, the latter having become Mr. Olympics at ABC Musburger has never been the host of an Olympics, nor has he broad­ cast baseball regularly. CBS hav­ ing earned neither since the mid 60’s. When his contract is up next January he may well follow the five-nng sign. ‘We'll sec what the other networks have got going' he says. ’The summer Olympics have always been an enormous lure.' Dial 911 for emergency One major change this com­ munity will see with the coming of the new telephone numbers will be the addition of the \911” emer­ gency number Help can be reached by dialing 911 in an emergency situation. For fires, ambulance calls, and needed emergency services from the Sheriff\s office, this new number should be uultzcd. Sheriff pcrsonnal stressed, how­ ever, that the 911 number is to be used for emergency purposes only To reach that office for other mat­ ters, callers should use their new number. 932-5143 You must dial all the digits There are two minor differences local telephone users should be aware of when the new telephone numbers come into service next Tuesday When the new numbers go into effect, it will be necessary for cal lets to dial 932 and then the de­ sired number In the past Big Tim­ ber area telephone users did not need to dial the 9 and 3 of our prefix number. That will change on January 17. Also, for long distance calls dialing the number one just one time is all that will be required in the future. Until the coming changeover, to reach a long dis­ tance line callers in Big Timber had to dial the number one twice The information operator for Montana can be reached by dial­ ing 1-411 Out of state informauon can be secured by calling l-( ap­ propriate area code>-555-1212. All of these changes will take place after the changeover next Tuesday. Triangle Telephone Coopera­ tive will be sending a letter to their subscribers this week explaining these changes. Also included in the envelope is a name plate you can stick on your phone indicaung your new number A real Christmas story Chain saw bites twice Chnstmas Eve is always special but this most recent one had some unusual flavor. The warm spirit of Christmastide was reflected in the generosity with the Christian fami­ ly- St Mark’s furnace malfunc­ tioned; the church was very cold. But friends across the street, the Lutheran Church, graciously in­ vited their Episcopalian neighbors to worship in their warm and beau­ tifully decorated building The hosts had worshipped earlier and so at 11 pm. with prayer books and thanksgiving St Marie’s people arrived More carols, more praising voices, and added prayers—and so a special blessing on a special night! / Dr. John Alexander admits he’s a lucky man. A recent chain saw accident resulted in 100-plus stitches in his left hand and across his check, which left a mark there similar to a ‘Superman” insignia. The accident happened while Doc was sawing a large log The saw slipped and stuck him in the chest One of his sons drove him to the Livingston hospital for treat- ment. The injured man saw there wasn't much pain associated with the incident and he is now well on the mend. This accident happened three years to the day from when he was injured in the right hand. Then the same chain saw slipped and cut him seriously. \I’m going to get a new chain saw,\ the Big Timber veterinarian Film series 4 Strengthen outlines ways to Grip’ allow. The popular minister, whose radio program\ Insight for Living” is broadcast more than 400 times daily, deals with the topic of aging in the second film He says no one needs to “ shift their head into neutrar merely because a certain age is reached. Known for his rapier-sharp use of the language and his pithy illus­ trations, Swindoll has made many church audiences sit up and listen when he warns against “ too much church.” In the third film he affirms lei­ sure as an important part of life, warning both the workaholic and \churchaholic” that\ fatigue is not next to godliness.\ Swiridoll also u,.ms that too much church” can insulate Chris­ tians from the real world, in the fourth film. \Godliness: The Penis of Hothouse Chnstiamty \ Film five is on \Attitudes Choosing the Food You Serve Your Mind.” Here Swindoll urges a mental diet of something other than “ media clutter\ for anyone wanung to improve their outlook on life. In the final film the author- minister deals with the crisis of authority which he secs in the land Taking personal responsibility for quelling our natural rebelliousness offers the only hope for what he calls a “talk-back, fight-back world\
