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.

FALLON COUNTY TIMES FRIDAY, MAY 29, 2015- 3 r - rt I II O pTJ Clarence Schell Funeral services for Clarence Schell, 84, of Baker were held May 22,2015 at the American Lutheran Church in Baker with Pastors Bruce and Reba Ko- lasch officiating. Burial with military honors was in the Peace Lutheran Cemetery in Plevna. Clarence passed away May 17,2015, at his home in Baker. Clarence Schell was born to Jacob Schell and LoneIla (Ehret) Schell in Plevna, Nov. 11, 1930. He was the second of nine children: Vernon, Clarence, Lloyd, Lillian , Alice, Raymond, Florence, Mary Ann, and Larry. When he was very young, his family moved to a farm four miles northeast of Ismay. Clarence attended his first two years of school in Plevna. He could only speak German when he started school. He started school in Ismay in the third or fourth grade when Lloyd started school. A few years later the family moved into Ismay, buy- ing a house just south of the l'resbyterian Church. Clarence used to pump the big organ at the church for 25 cents a Sunday. Clarence's next job was unloading car- loads of cement one sack at a time for Midland Lumber. It was a really hard job, but he did it. Clarence graduated from Ismay High School in 1948 with five other seniors. After high school, he worked for Karl Hepperle as a me- chanic helper and on the Drange Ranch as a ranch hand in 1948. He also did electrical and plumbing for Kenneth Cole in 1949-50 and during the time he worked at Hepperle's and for Kenneth Cole. He went with Cliff Schell to a school- house dance north of Plevna where he met Dolores Ann! In 1950 he joined the U.S. Navy, serving from 1950 to 1954 as radar operator on the USS Harveson. After returning from the serv- ice, Clarence got a job at Bud's Super Valu for Bud Bowen. He was staying at his Grandma Quenzer's in Plevna and had a passenger to Baker every day. You guessed it - it was Do- lores. She was working for the Fallon County Times. They had quite a courtship from 1949-1955 when he finally persuaded her to marry him. They had an early spring wed- ding on March 20, 1955. Life was great together. In 1958, after being worried they weren't going to have children, Clarence and Dolores had their firstborn, Kenneth Jacob. In 1959 along came Julie Ann, Angela Rene followed in 1961. 'Their fourth child, Rick Allen, completed their family in 1963. That same year they bought a locker and meat pro- cessing plant and called it Schell Meat Service. In 1964 the family built a new home, pink house with white brick. In 1968 Reynolds Corporation approached Clarence on becoming their manager and around 1975 Clarence and Dolores bought the shopping center. orebestaff..r C•••••••• •••• Ct.., • 00011 ....... \A Farmers Said Company' il•od Avenel*, for Spring 2015 • Certified COC likordkow yellow Feu • Coddled CDC Treader* yeller pees • Coddled CDC Olditer great pee* • Cerelled Welds dams • Certified Tiede dame.

He also made investments in real estate. He was a progressive man, and worked to build an impressive career. He was al- ways friendly and accommo- dating to the public and tried to serve his customers in every way. He built up a small mall in Baker and contributed much to its economy. Dolores worked with him and was a real asset, doing the bookwork, billing and collecting. Clarence retired from Reynolds in 1996 after spend- ing 41 years in the grocery and meat business. Clarence en- joyed gardening and working in the soil. He seemed to be able to get anything to grow beautifully. He was an avid collector of antique wagons, cars, machinery, and later ea- gles and clocks. Everything he did was for the benefit of his family.

Remembrances and condo- lences may be shared with the family at www.stevensonfu- ncral home .com Bump -N-Run Race set for next weekend By Lori Kesinger Some of the most daring drivers around will soon be racing around a dirt track of turns and jumps while bump- ing other cars out of the way to get to the finish line first. The Tri-Area Racing Associ- ation (TARA) is getting ready to bring some of the best motor sports action in the region to Baker. TARA hosts the yearly Baker Bump -N -Run race sanctioned by the Montana Bump -N -Run Association. Due to a scheduling conflict with the Association, the race this year is being held at an earlier date rather than on Fa- ther's Day. It will be Sunday, June 7, at the Baker Motor Sports Complex located two miles west of Baker on High- way 12. Racing is set to start at noon with seating available in bleachers, or bring a lawn chair. Admission is $10 with ages seven and under admit- ted free. Concessions will be available. The Baker Bump -N -Run race is held Sunday every year in conjunction with the Ekalaka Bump -N -Run race on Saturday to bring as many participants to the area for the weekend. Both towns have had over 70 racers from a four state region participate in the races. TARA continues to strive to bring revenue to Fallon and Carter Counties and to pro- vide entertainment to motor sports fans. The Baker Bump -N -Run race has ap- proximately 40 racers, their families, and about 350 spec- tators on average in atten- dance. TARA operates as a non- profit organization and relies completely on members and volunteers to assist with labor and equipment needs for an entire racing event. TARA is searching for more volun- teers to help with the race this year and general track main- tenance at the complex. To join TARA, membership fees are $30 per family. Current TARA board mem- bers are: President - Court- ney Dietz, vice president - Bruce Brown, secretary - Kristi Burns, treasurer - LaNae Bretzel; board mem- bers are Clint Dietz and Doug Rowe. TARA would like to have more people become in- volved not only with the car racing but motocross, also. The Baker Motor Sports Complex site has bump -n -run and motocross tracks sharing land with the Fallon County Shooting Range. Due to the close proximity to the shoot- ing range, the bump -n -run track is closed except for race day. Dirt bikes are allowed to use the motocross track most of the time, but more in- volvement is needed to re- vive the motocross division. For more information about the race or to volunteer, con- tact Clint Dietz at 406-853- 6325. Riders will saddle up for St. Jude benefit By Lori Kesinger This Father's Day will be a good day to Saddle Up for St. Jude, an event that wel- comes riders and their horses to spend some time in the saddle while giving to a wor- thy cause. With humble beginnings, the local Saddle Up event was initiated by Marge Griebel after she was con- tacted by St. Jude to coordi- nate the trail ride. Following the first event held at the Dave Wang ranch, Griebel's young niece was diagnosed with cancer. \I was so thankful to have done the trail ride,\ Griebel said. \I wanted to help chil- dren with cancer.\ Griebel continued to coor- dinate the event for several years followed by Doug Bruha and Dave Wang. Doug has been the coordinator for the past few years. Since opening in 1962, St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and around the world. Their physicians and scientists have pioneered treatments that have helped push the overall survival rates for childhood cancers from less than 20 percent when the hospital opened to 80 percent today. No child is ever denied treatment be- cause of a family's inability to pay. This is made possible through donations. This is the 18th year the local Saddle Up for St. Jude event will be held. It has raised more than $41,000 since it began in 1997. Bruha said the event usu ally brings out between 10 to 30 participants, but they would like to see that num- ber go up. The event is open to riders National Drug IQ Challenge Tobacco is the leading preventable cause of disease and death in the U.S. It causes: A. About one in every five early deaths B.
