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 one of the questions to be de­ bated next Monday at a public hearing on proposed changes to Ordinance 44D, beginning at 7 p.m. at Tribal headquar­ ters in Pablo. Limited harvesting of grizzlies and bighorn sheep by the membership is one of about ten proposed changes to the Tribes’ hunting and fishing ordinance for the 1989-90 season. Other proposals include prohibiting the use of radio communication while hunting, no har­ vesting of wild turkeys, and closing the south fork of the Jocko to bulltrout fish­ ing. Tribal Chairman Mickey Pablo em­ phasizes that the changes are all pro­ posed and open to public comment. “We need to know how the people feel about the proposed changes. Those who can’t attend the hearing are encouraged to put their comments in a letter, which will become part of the official record,” he said. Tribal wildlife biologist Parke Moore said the harvesting of one or two griz­ zlies from the portion of their habitat corridor that’s part of the Tribes’ abo­ riginal hunting area probably wouldn’t be harmful. The state already allows a certain number to be taken each season, he pointed out. The Tribal policy, should it become law after review of cultural and treaty rights considerations, would sim­ ply allow for one or two Tribal mem­ bers, chosen in a drawing, to hunt one or two grizzlies from the state’s limit in a defined area. The same idea would govern the tak­ ing of bighorn sheep, should that also be approved. As for changes in fishing policy, the proposal calls for suspending the winter (Continues on page two) Agreement signed on Post Creek damage Members of the Shoreline Protection Board and the Lake County commis­ sioners visited the Delaney Way bridge last week and hammered out an agree­ ment to undo the damage caused by its construction. A county road crew had tom down and replaced the old Post Creek crossing in August without getting permission first. During the construction, some environmental damage occurred. This and the lack of a Tribal permit led to the county being cited for violating the Tribal Aquatic Lands Ordinance 87-A (ALCO). The county admitted it didn’t do the best job on the bridge, and that it had problems about who had jurisdiction over the project anyway, the Tribes or the state. The agreement, signed Nov. 22, says (Continues on page two)
