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.

He added that he was impressed with his first visit to Montana. \The first thing I noticed was that I couldn't see the air here like I can in Washington,\ he said, expressing praise for Kicking Horse’s location at the foot of the Mis­ sion Mountains. \The center looks good. I can see everyone worked hard. Usually, when I comment on the neatness of a center, the director tells me, 'It always looks this good.' But not Virgil here,\ he said, pointing to Kicking Horse director Vir­ gil Clairmont. \When I mentioned how clean and orderly the campus looked today, Virgil said, 'Oh, it usually looks better...'\ Rell's comments followed presenta­ tions of gifts from a number of commu­ nity leaders: Tribal Council vice-chair­ man Ron Therriault; Poison mayor, Pat DeVries; Ronan mayor, George Atkin­ son; Jay Preston, Ronan Chamber of (Continues on page two) LABOR DAY CLOSURES All Tribal, BIA and IHS offices will be closed Monday, Sept. 7, in observance o f Labor Day.
