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.
Pi|« 2— BIG TIMBER PIONEER- Wednesday. Jiuiuary 11, 1984 Pioneer Viewpoints Mirror to the community The reaction of our readers to the “ Big Timber Future” issue published December 28 was greater than we expected Remarks to the staff plus letters to the editor in last week’s Pioneer and this week comment on the negativism of the essays. This newspaper has been chided for printing “ bad news”. “ Print only good news, if you have to, make it up,” we were advised If we were to follow that suggestion, The Pioneer would not be doing if s job. This newspaper is a mirror to this community. We reflect the events and feelings, the trends and thoughts of the people who live here. Mirrors show reality— not what we would like to see. Big Timbers future lies in the hands of the young people. We asked those students to tell us what they see coming in the advancing years. It was their thoughts and speculations we printed that last week in 1983, not those of the publisher or editor of this newspaper. Most of the young people’s writings predicted total or partial nuclear disaster. That is alarming. But by focusing on their essays, we see what’s on their minds. We see how they see their future. And hopefully, we can now look even harder for ways to insure that their picture of “ doom and despair” is never painted indeed is erased from their minds The “ mirror’’ has pictured ideas and feelings some may not wish to look upon But ignoring the reflection will serve no purpose Now we know what* s there, lef s work to change the image Letter to the Editor Lift up, don’t push down Dear Editor My thank you to Blanche and Virginia Peterson for their note in last week*s paper. I felt the same way when I read the Deccmber28 paper. I use to enjoy reading the paper, but this turned me off. Let us have some encouragement, something uplifting! I would also suggest a “ Short Thought for the Week” by our Pastors Please, Pastors, get together and organize, making up some thoughts for the week each of you and give them to Bcccy and she will put them in the paper as time goes by. Let us lift up, not push down! Let us look upward, not downward. God is not dead! Let us let Him take over our lives and we can rest secure! Berte Breck Weekenders Weekend guests of James and Sharon Bratvold were Mr. and Mrs. Leland Anderson of Alvara do. N.M Letter to the Editor Soviet weather war Dear Editor Mark Twain once said everybody talks about the weather but nobody docs anything about it But new evidence is being presented that the Soviets are controlling our weather, keeping their country warmer and our country colder. \Youth Action” was the first to expose this situation in 1977. One of the first scientists to expose the Soviet weather war assault was Dr. Andrew Michrowski, a technologist specialist with the Canadian State Department He worked with a group of scientists and engineers throughout Canada and America to monitor and expose the Soviet ELF weather war against America In a February 1978 letter, Michrowskr-describcd how the U. S. S. R. set up giant standing waves: “ In the case of the winter of 1976-77, the Soviets have managed to establish terrestrial electric resonance, and then to learn how to establish relatively stable and localized E L F ( Extremely Low Frequency) magnetic field, which were able to hamper or divert the jet stream flow in the Northern Hemisphere.” Dr. Michrowksi described how stationary fronts (weather blocking mechanisms) were set up over the west coast of North America between Baja, California and the Alaskan coast which “ permitted great diversion of air movement and the maintenance of high and low pressure areas...” for long periods. He continued: \In the case of the winter of 1977-1978,...the Soviet scientists involved had the ingenious idea of setting up one series of standing columnar waves that extended from the westerly tip of Alaska all the way to Valpariso, Chile. This columnar wave form (was) projected from near Angarsk, Siberia....It created a world-wide weather modification in that east of this formation the weather (was) drier and west of it, precipitation ( was) enhanced As the columnar waves rotated clockwise, the westerly winds (were) sucked upwards counter-clockwise into the upper atmos phere while a drag (brought) air from the upper atmosphere on the opposite side.\ No mention is made about our weather being controlled by the Soviets or by our trilateral-controlled government and controlled news media The cover story' they give us for these sudden weather changes is to allege that they are so-called \natural changes” caused by the Greenhouse Affect Sincerely yours, Lee Smoot Jr. Letter to the Editor Scouts need equipment Dear Beccy, Recently the Boy Scouts made an appeal for help in the way of equipment for their troop. The results were highly disappointing In a day and age where people are constantly complaining about the moral attitudes of their young people, the scouting program offers a positive alternative with very little effort on the part of most people. The Scouts have offered and given their time and assistance whenever different charitable organizations have asked. It would seem to me we could - id should do the same for them. The Scouts arc looking for any camp equipment—new or used— which could be put to use in their program. In the last two months only four pieces of equipment were donated by two ladies. This equipment was appreciated, but surely we can do better by them. Any equipment can be left at Saws ’N Things for pickup by the Scout Master. Thanks for printing this, Dave Goosey Buy Manhattan business Lucille Clark, a veteran in the cable television business, and Jim and Alice Luttschwager, all of Big Timber, have purchased the Man- hattan Cable TV in Manhattan, MT. The newly acquired property will not necessitate any moving for the new owners. Dale C Oberly Publisher Bcccy Oberly Editor Alaskan visitor Ivan Hulin was in Big Timber for the Christmas holidays visiting family and friends. Ivan is now a resident of Alaska and says he is enjoying the northernmost state. The former Big Timber man works in the lumber and hardware business in the area around Pal mer.
