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.

LETTERS c o n c lu d e 140 miles apart When a bear hits a yard, the usual pattern is a loss of one or two hives (a value of $100 to $200) every night Our losses are minimized by the alertness of ranchers around our bee yards and by the swift action of the agencies that deal with bears. If it weren’t for the conscientious action of the Tribal wardens, our losses this year would be significantly greater. A half-dozen times the tribe has set culvert traps in besieged yards the day we notified them; twice this was done after being called late in the evening Last year they shot one trap-wise bear as a last resort, only after neither the culvert traps nor snares succeeded in capturing him. Our experience with the state Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks is of marked contrast As we were told, it might or might not be convenient to locate a warden with access to a trap. Their advice was to find someone with a bear license Any urgency seemed of little concern to them Most bear-hive depredations occur at night when it is both illegal and unsafe to hunt Also, the locations of our yards make it possible that the offending bear might sometimes be a grizzly. Our hats are off to the vigilant ranchers who have notified us after first sight of problems and to Tribal wardens and officials who have proven genuine concern for the welfare of small businesses such as ours and for the welfare of the bear.
