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.

She also entertained the elementary and high school students with her musical talent as a pianist. This was Miss Montana's 147th presentation. She has spoken to 26,000 Montana students since she began her reign June 13, 2015. Miss Montana emphasizes each student \is the star of their own story\ and, therefore, can determine what tliC student thinks about themselves. Continuing the metaphor, she said the student also plays a role in the story of those they interact with. She stated, \Every time you use your words, you are making a conscious decision between using your words for the forces of good and the forces of evil.\ She added,\ \By refraining from negative comments, we help others maintain their own confi- dence and character.\ Toward the end of the program, Wineman allotted time for ques- tions. One elementary student asked, \When is your birthday?\ Miss Montana replied, \My birthday is on Pi day.\ (rt. 3.14). She then asked, \Do you know when that is?\ One eager student's hand shot up and she said, \Thanksgiving\! Another question asked was, \How does your crown stay on?\ The children broke into laughter when she replied, \In the morning I chew a big wad of bubble gum,\ as she motioned that she puts lion the top of her head.
