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.

Tuesday morning. Cash was taken from the Grand Bar, the Cort Bar, and the Madhatter Saloon. Sweet Grass County Sheriffs Deputy Bill Camp said a total of $2,022 was taken from the three businesses plus considerable damage done to equipment and the Corf s front door. Camp believes the break-ins were done by more than one person, and may be part of u series of burglaries occuring in this part of the state over the past several weeks. Cort Bar owner Tope Strobe! said the front door of his business was tom apart to gain entrance. The damage was so extensive he had to order a new door. About SI 60 was taken from the Cort. the owner said. The bar's poker machine and cash drawer fronts were tom oft Armand Undicelli, proprietor of the Madhatter Saloon, discovered the damage at his place when he opened up at 8:00 a m. yesterday morning. Money had been taken from the poker and video machines and from the cash drawer. Entry, he said, was gained through the back door. The local deputies still have the case under investigation Public hearing draws little response You may be asked to rate these potential projects If Mohammed won’t go to the mountain, the mountain will go to Mohammed. That is apparently what the City-County Planning Board will da A public hearing held last Thursday evening February 2, at­ tracted only one citizen to com­ ment on establishing a list of po­ tential community projects. The Board discussed develop­ ing a questionnaire and asking people to rate in order of impor­ tance a list o f projects the city may someday need to contemplate un­ dertaking Such a questionnaire would be circulated within the City-County Planning Board*s jur­ isdiction, primarily the town of Big Timber and a three mile area from ifs limits. The reason behind this “ Needs Assessment prioritized list is to have this information available should the community wish to ap­ ply for another Community De­ velopment Block Grant (CDBG). A CDBG was the source of public money secured to build the Indus­ trial Park last year. An important part of the ques­ tionnaire, which will be confiden­ tial and anonymous the board said, is the income level of respondents. CDBG funds are more available to communities with low to moderate income levels. The agencies a- warding the CDBG grants will not accept 1980 census income fig­ ures, Planner Andy Epple said. The preliminary list of com­ munity needs, problems and po­ tential projects now being con­ sidered include: • Tennis court improvements • Finish High School Gym • Landfill solution • Resurface city streets • FAS 298 resurfacing • Housing rehabilitation, north­ east • Water supply line, head end to storage tank • Library expansion • Sidewalk improvements, barrier free • Development of multi-family housing r • Joint emergency services facili­ ty • Insulate, install energy efficient windows at Courthouse • Economic development • Vehicle maintenance facility for county • Access to Yellowstone River If you would like to comment on this needs assessment project con­ tact any memberofthe City-Coun­ ty Planning Board John Morrison.
