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.

At that time Baker was a neat, clean town and every- one took pride in their homes and yards. 1 recently spent a few nights in Baker and was appalled at how disgusting the town looks today. All four roads leading into town have piles of trash and junk cars Dilapidated and fallen down buildings line the streets all over town. There are nice new homes next to trashed homes that have piles of junk and garbage in their yards and driveways. Baker has wonderful schools, a new hospital, a new court- house, and has made wonder- ful improvements around the lake. Why doesn't the city council and the county com- missioners enforce your zon- ing laws and clean this mess up. I am looking for a place to invest some money but I have ruled out Baker. s/Duane 1.ong Cards Seven people played pinochle at the Baker Senior Citizen Center May 10.
