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.
T-E T rivia ©gal 1 2 © crime, fh©n tax if The Police Gazette, The average policeman could write a book about law enforcement liumor. What he doesn’t know about what goes on in his community would fill a jail. The New Yorker magazine regularly features items from small town police logs such as: “0215—officer 15 dispatched to Sebree Street...husband beating up wife.'1; “0230 officer 14 dispatched to Bannack Street—wife beating up husband. Contrary to popular belief, law enforcement people do have a sense of humor. Dillon Police Chief Tom Depew is no exception. Tom can entertain civic groups with endless stories about his experiences. Once he encountered a friend coining out of Skeets in the early morning hours. The man ooviously was in no condition to (five. “George, can I give you a ride home?\ the Chief asked. “ No thanks Tom, I have my car!” Will Roger’s solution for ever-increasing crime was to “ legalize it, and then tax it out of business”. Mickey has a better solution, get the government into the crime business, and then it wouldn’t pay! Out of the Mouth of Babes Ibeyville Ida caught her young four-year-old using some playground language unsuitable for dinner conversation. The tyke kept saying “gotdammit”. At first she tried to ignore it. Finally it got a bit too much so she said “Junior you shouldn’t use that word, you should say “ oh, oh!” He took the advice. The next time he dropped his muffin, he said, “ Oh! Oh!, gotdammit!” You Gotta Know the Territory Perhaps the week’s most pitiful case is about the candidate running for an office in Beaverhead County who was discovered soliciting votes door to door up a t Melrose in Silver Bow County! That’s almost as pitiful as the Dillon wife who had to celebrate her tenth wedding anniversary by going to the Demolition Derby! Oh well, at least hie remembered it. There is an old saying that the man who never forgets his anniversary is probably a bachelor! Another pitiful case story occurred a t the Beaver head 4-H stock sale. A little nine-year-old was showing his prize pig. The bidding was not too brisk. A sympathetic unschooled buyer decided to help out, put in what he thought was a nominal bid which ended up as the successful one. Problem was the bidder had already bought a pig a t the Twin Bridges sale. Bar-b-queBob There are always dozens of comparatively un noticed workers behind every successful community project. At the Jaycee rodeo, among others, it was the barbeque family of Bob Meine. That job of feeding some 2,000 hungry Sunday rodeo fans was something else! Early Sunday morning Bob moved his barbeque facilities to the Fair Grounds—two big motorized spits, a 50-gallon iron pot, a cord or two of firewood, and his motor home command post. Just as the last cowboy was bucked off the last bull, the food was ready to serve. I t took two hours, but some 30 members of the Meine family and assorted friends had served, 500 pounds of donated beef, 1,000 ears of com, 50 gallons of beans, and 2,000 buns. That Sunday picnic after the show is now a part of the Labor Day tradition, and the Meine’s portable spit technique gives it an additional dimension. Fox Run Subdivision ready for site sales Fox Run Subdivision, the newest subdivision in Dillon, has begun to make homesites ana commercial property available for sale.
