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.

Escapee gets prison term Ricky Van Voorhees was sentenced to serve 10 years in the state prison on each of two counts by Judge E. Gardner Brownlee in District Court here. Sentencing came at the regular law and motion day in District Court after Van Voorhees changed his plea to guilty of two counts -one for theft, a felony, of tools and logging equipment from Bill Cuddy and the other for theft of a pickup belonging to William A. Casey. Van Voorhees agreed to plead guilty after the state agreed to withdraw two other counts involving drugs. Judge Brownlee ordered that the two 10 -year terms are to run concurrently and suspended seven years of each term and also gave Van Voorhees credit for time already served in the Sanders County jail. Van Voorhees had escaped from the Sanders County jail twice; once when he and another prisoner pried bars off a small opening in the door to their cell block and again when he walked away while working refinishing benches in the courtroom. Sheriff A. H. Cheney recently flew to Minneapolis to get Van Voorhees after he turned himself in to law enforcement officers in a small Minnesota town. Ledger office.

The amount of the tax relief is based on the total mill levy in the area where a home is located and on the valuation of the home. Since Plains has the highest tax levy in the county, generally, the largest tax relief vouchers go to homeowners there. Many home owners within the city limits of Thompson Falls are receiving vouchers for $98.70. Others are as low as $30.40. At Hot Springs, many homeowners are getting vouchers for $102.47, but some are as low as $22.03. Persons who reside outside the city limits of the three towns, are getting smaller vouchers. Outside Plains, vouchers are for $67.85 and some are as high as $73.05.
