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.
Be cautious and have a safe holiday Next Thursday is the Fourth of July. While many people will be “ pow wowing” in Arlee, others will be happily lighting firecrackers and other types of fireworks. More than 7,500 people in the second group will spend part of their holiday in hospital emergency rooms across the nation, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. If you still want to be part of that second group -- but not among the thousands to be injured -- here is some good advice: Always read the directions Don’t let children use fireworks unsuper vised. Two-thirds of those 7,500 people men tioned above will be children under the age of 15. Never experiment with fireworks. Don’t take them apart, add extra ingredients, or try to make your own fireworks. Always light fireworks outdoors in an area cleared of cars, kids, pets, grass, other fire works and other flammable items. Light one device at a time. Keep a bucket of water nearby. Maintain a safe distance after lighting a device, and give it time to go off. Dispose of cooled, spent fireworks safely; soak the “ duds” in water before disposal. Never allow small children to handle fire works. Store fireworks in a cool, dry place, and avoid rough handling which could damage fuses. Never ignite a device in a metal or glass container. Don’t ignite any in the woods, either. * Misuse of fireworks can lead to singed fingers, lost eyes, and even death. Pay attention to the safety rules above and you should have a safe Independence Day. Better still, forget the fireworks and go watch a community display, or go watch the fancy dancers in Arlee.
