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.

LETTERS continue is to celebrate Native Americans’ contribution to the labor force. 1 also have been offered a job as a social worker in the St. Paul school system, a social worker on the Red Lake Reservation, a cultural resource media teacher, and an affirmative action program officer for the city of Min­ neapolis. But I’m coming home after 1 take a break from the war on the poor and bask in all this respect, recognition and honor. You see, 1 refuse to be intimidated by the Personal director, or anyone else who oppresses the poor. Kevin, submit my album proposal to the Council. It will be interesting to see if it will be funded. I’ll see you all when I get back from visiting and I hope there is a job waiting for me. Peace, jobs, and justice. Gen Huitt St Ignatius A n d . . . In response to your letter in the May 28 issue: Paragraph 1: Having read your alleged apology in the May 28th issue of The Char-Koosta, I find that you have compiled a lengthy argument in favor of the use of distasteful language and name-calling. I cannot believe these are the issues and comments you value so highly. As a member of the Tribal Council you are expected to abide by certain standards of decency and dignity. In this area you have not maintained either. Paragraph 3: This report on your many positions does not fit into the “apology” of the first paragraph. It does appear that you have learned one of the vital facets of a bureau­ cracy: to spend, and to justify the need to spend an ever- increasing amount of money that belongs to others. Paragraph 4: Congratulations! You have succeeded in insulting several thousand of your fellow Tribal members. Perhaps we who are inferior should ask for a detailed account of the educational and business backgrounds of our Tribal Council. After that, maybe we should ask for an audit of every business venture they have made with our money. There is just a possibility that OUR applicant pool might compare favorably with our present, superior governing body. Another item to consider: It has been said by certain members of the Council that being a councilman is not a full-time job, and that no one can possibly live on $13,000 per year. How many people are there on the Reservation who would be most grateful for such a salary for a two-day work week? ¡CO M M E R C IAL-R E S ID E N T IAL | Serving the S t Ignatius Area P h o n e 7 4 5 - 3 3 9 6 iiiiiiiiiiiim iiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiim iiiiiim Page 8 .......................................................................................................C S K T s Char-Koosta News, Miiimiiiimmimmiimiiiimiimimmiiimwiiiiiimiimiimiiimimiimimimiiimijii ¡Plouffe’s Disposal I “ ( f a i U t 6 e o ' Z f U p e o p l e . * 1 k w e c A o à e * U v e i * t e U e t y .

It would require two faces. Let me explain: Quote, “ IF I have erred” and in the same sentence you say, “And I have”. You make an “if’ statement and a positive statement in the same sentence and it just isn’t done! As a friend, Kevin, let me say this: I would advise you to have your future material edited. Very sincerely, Esther M. Titcomb U.S. Government Employee Washington, D.C. Retired Ronan As your editor, readers, let me say this: Councilman Howlett made a mistake for which he publicly apologized. Now you’re criticizing the apology? Let’s stop playing “Let’s Kick Kevin” and move onto a fresher complaint, like how come it’s taking FERC so long to decide about the Kerr Dam lease . . . Editor. Close the roads after use _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Editor: This letter concerns the opening and closing of roads. I can’t leave sleeping dogs lie. As we all know, there are always two sides to everything. Before we get these roads opened, let’s look in on the other side of the coin. It would save the Tribe a lot of money if they remained closed. The game wardens wouldn’t have to patrol every road. And look at the game that would venture back. It would be home to the birds, squirrels, elk deer, bear, etc. Think of our grandchildren.
