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.

A news puSiication o f the ( Saiish and ‘ Kootenai Tribes V l of the Kiathead Indian ‘Reservation Chief Koostatah of the Kootenai Chief Charlo of the Saiish VOLUME 16, NUMBER 36 THE SHOOTING MONTH JANUARY 27, 1988 Changes in 44D regulations to be subject of hearing A public hearing will be held next Monday (Feb. 1) in Pablo, beginning at 7 p.m., to discuss proposed rules under Ordinance 44D (hunting and fishing) during the 1988-89 license season (see the official notice on page 10). The proposed rules don’t differ from 1987’s too much, except for one change which affects non-members, including unenrolled minor children of Tribal members. In 1987, non-members 12 years and older were required to purchase a con­ servation permit (plus hunting and fish­ ing stamps if they planned to do those things) to enjoy recreational pursuits on Tribal property, even if their parents were enrolled and with them. Under the proposed new rules, the age limit would be raised to 18 years, where it was in the years prior to the enactment of 44D in the spring of 1987. * Here’s the exact wording to the pro­ posed change: “Section 1 - Permits Required. “A. (1) Non-members less than eight­ een (18) years of age or older but less than sixty-five (65) years of age must have in their possession a Tribal Use and Conservation Permit with appropriate stamps to hunt, fish or engage in recrea­ tion activities subject to Tribal Ordi- (Continues on page two) iti ■O QO 0) IO í O « 6 Sign-up deadline is today Three needed for public TV board Three people — two Native Americans and one non-Indian — are being sought to serve on the SKC public TV board of directors. The board is made up of five members: two Indians, two non-Indians, and a fifth person recommended by the Saiish Kootenai College board of trustees. The board oversees the direction of the project. “The original board has served us well in getting the project off the drawing board and near reality,” said Frank Tyro, coordinator of the effort. “The meeting schedule was hard for some members, though, so we hope ‘new blood’ will bring the project to a close and provide new ideas for making the station a vital part of the Reservation community.” The on-air date has been changed from this month to next month, Tyro said, because one essential piece of equipment still hasn’t arrived. Once it does, broadcasting could begin one or two weeks later, he said. Residents of St. Ignatius and nearby will see the PBS station on channel 28. In the Ronan/Charlo/Pablo areas, the broadcasts can be seen on channel 25. “Anyone with a clear sight of the water tower on the north side of Mission or of the Westland Seed elevator in Ronan should be able to pick up the signals,” Tyro said. “Others may or (Concludes on page five)
