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.

This year however, three students from different countries have started school here, two exchange students and one who moved here with his parents. These new students from Finland, Taiwan, and Brazil, bring with them new cultural experiences and perspectives to Hellgate. Annika Gustaffson arrived from Turku, Finland on Aug. 14 and plans to stay in America until June 30. Her favorite things here are the food and the shopping, which is much cheaper than it is in Finland. There, a 0.33 liter bottle of Coke/Pepsi typically costs AVEL TO MISSOULA 2.10 €, or $2.70 here. Although she misses Finnish chocolate, rye bread, her friends, and the shorter school days in Finland, Gustaffson loves the school spirit and even joined the school ’ s dance team. When asked if she's seen any sort of strange customs so far, she replied with, \Hall passes. Why would you need a hall pass to go to the bathroom?\ For the last five years Gustaffson has really wanted to come to America. \I wanted to see what the high school experience was like, work on English fluency, and gain international connections. It's been a big dream to come here for like five years.\ Matt Tsai flew in from Taipei, Taiwan on Aug. 19 and will not be leaving until next July.
