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.

The purpose of this training is to assist people in forming positive attitudes towards all aspects of their lives. During the week, individuals will begin to ac­ knowledge, accept and resolve ugly experiences due to alcoholism, being raised in a chemical-dependent family, drug abuse and emotional neglect. The focus is to change negative feel­ ings, attitudes and beliefs into positive and live-serving ones. Local people who have gone through the training in the past report that it was a very positive experience. The Alcohol Program has already sponsored one group and hopes to con­ tinue this activity in the future beyond the Sept. 12-17 session. Plans are being finalized for commu­ nity members to make the journey to Alkali Lake this Saturday (Sept. 12).
