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.

Conko and Rhonda Quequesah, TERS students, read speeches to the crowd, summing up the years at TERS in Dixon and their anticipation for the new school. Bev Morigeau, who has been on staff at TERS the longest, spoke of the special moment. “I’ve been here since [the school] started and I’ve seen a lot of changes. Every year it changes to something very good,” she said. “I’m very anxious to see the new school come about” “Of all the things I’ve seen accom­ plished by the Tribes,” said TERS soggy but satisfying school board chairman Jim Steele, “this is the most special day for me. Working toward the school required dealing with a lot of bureaucracy. It was very hard work.” Sundermann says there will be a pre-construction meeting June 9 and he anticipates the construction to begin soon thereafter. Swank Enter­ prises of Kalispell will do the work, which is expected to take 330 days to complete. Tribal leader Pat Pierre said, ‘There’s going to be a lot more people going to this school.
