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.

That’s no big deal except that they didn’t bother to get permission first, either from the Tribes’ Shoreline Pro­ tection Office, whose jurisdiction the county disputes, or from the state, whose jurisdiction they believe in. They also made a mess and damaged the environment. They’ve since met with Shoreline Protection and have made a verbal commitment to do remedial work. The incident took place in mid-Au­ gust when a BIA enployee reported to SPO that Post Creek was being dredged. SPO subsequently cited the county for violating Ordinance 87-A, the Aquatic Lands Conservation Ordinance (ALCO). An engineering consulting firm from Missoula then reviewed the project and judged some of its elements as “not [being] within accepted standards”. The county commissioners admitted as much and acknowledged that they neglected to seek a permit. First of all, they said, it was an emergency situation. Second, according to lame duck com­ missioner Mike Hutchin, the Tribes don’t have jurisdiction over such proj­ ects anyway. Hutchin’s contention aside, the SPO board of directors held a hearing in October and came up with a list of eight activities that would address the envi­ ronmental damage. Once it’s signed, following review by attorneys for the three parties involved (the state cited the county, too), the county will have until March 1,1989, to complete the work, or face a possible fine. 8 a > «0 8 00 o ¡5 «3 « Public TV celebrates its first anniversary PABLO — The Reservation’s public TV station hosted an open house Nov. 16 to mark its first year of broadcasting. Media center director Frank Tyro and members of the board of directors were on hand to greet some 30 visitors and explain how the station works. During a tour of the control room, Tyro said that they’re enjoying the use of equipment that’s ahead of its time. A noteworthy feature is a laptop computer that can be used to control program ming from anywhere there’s phone service. All told, they had about $350,000 worth of equipment and material at the center, he said. The money came from a set-up grant, a bank loan and support from the Reservation community in the form of donations and underwriting agreements. Underwriting is where an individual or business agrees to sponsor a particu­ lar show or series. Monthly underwrit­ ing rates are $80 for weekly shows and $300 for daily shows. Yearly rates are (Concludes on the next page)
