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.

Legal Tip of the Week Did you know ... that any changes to your par- enting plan must be approved by the Court? You cannot just make an agreement with the other parent to change the par- enting plan. If the change is not made formally through the Court, you cannot rely on it. This applies to any part of your parenting plan, including plans for the summer.

The office of county commissioner for the two a year term and for the six year term has been combined under the one heading of County Commissioner. It is important that voters remember that they can vote for only one person for the two -year term and one for the six year term. Upon the Democratic ticket voters will observe that Akers and Sparks are candidates for the six -year term and Farwell for the two , : year term. Hence, every voter will be entitled to vote for Farwell and El; THER Sparks or Akers, but they cannot vote for both Akers and. Sparks, as both are candidates for the six -year term, and voters who vote for Akers and Sparks invalidate their vote entirely. They will have to vote for Farwell and Akers or for Farwell and Sparks. On the Republican ticket Bondell, Howell, Munro and Schreiber are candidates for the two-year term, while Maxwell, McFarland' and Schofield are for the six -year term. Voters may vote for one candidate in each of these groups, but if they vote for two candidates for the same term their ballot for com. missioner is invalidated. Where a candidate has not specified the term for which he is a candidate, he is deemed to be a candidate for the six -year term. The error in the ballot was first discovered by Edwin Booth just, as the Times had closed its last \form\. Fortunately it is not too late to advise election judges the necessity of instructing every voter who enters the polls. Has anyone seen this pet pony in Fallon County?
