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.

Boot stompin’ new album from Jason DeShaw Ex-Carroll Cowboy sings his heart out SMALL TOWN MONTANAN PREPARES TO MAKE THE BIG TIME Jason DeShaw, ex-Carroll heartthrob and soulful cowboy, emerges from small town Montana as one of the most promising new faces on the Country music scene. By Stephanie Twining Editor From his “kickass” debut in the Brewhouse taproom all the way to the Rocky Mountain Oyster Festival, Jason DeShaw, has been making the rounds and taking his music with him. Since his senior year at Carroll, the Plentywood, Mont, native has pursued music entertainment with a “learn as you go” attitude. With one well-received album already under his belt buckle, DeShaw, 22, has been busy recording his sec­ ond while simultaneously prepar­ ing himself for the rigorous pro­ motion period that is soon to come. Directly after his graduation from Carroll with a Business major and Communication minor, DeShaw bought a farmhouse in Plentywood and began the family business of selling crop insur­ ance. “You feel that you should be working a steady job because of what society tells you,” said DeShaw, “But (music) feels right in my heart and like it’s what I should be doing.” DeShaw’s upcoming album entitled “Ten Miles 2 Go” has an all-new sound along with new instrumentation and includes 13 original tracks. It also features one new version of a song from his first CD, “The Country Way.” Looking toward increasing radio time as well as gaining a strong Montana following, DeShaw opted to fill this album with, in his own words, “foot stompin’, drivin’ down the road kinda songs.” What more can you ask from a quality country CD? The promotion period is scheduled to kickoff on Thursday, April 22 right here at Carroll College. DeShaw will be hosting a pre­ release party in the Cube (or out­ side, weather permitting) and plans on pre-releasing 200 copies of “Ten Miles 2 Go.” The official release date for the rest of the world won’t happen until May 7 when, once again, Helena will have the privilege of the first show. On Friday, May 7, beginning at 7 p.m. the Brewhouse will host a pre- Carroll graduation party featuring an outdoor concert where DeShaw will play. The following day, on May 8, a mini Jason DeShaw concert and CD signing will take place at Hastings. Be there by 7 p.m. to catch the action. This summer will be an eventful one for DeShaw who intends to travel to campuses all over the northwest putting on shows and promoting his new album. His highline tour will take him up and down Highway 2 which just so happens to be the title highway for his new album. Although DeShaw’s summer schedule will be demanding, with meticulous planning required, the self-proclaimed pro­ crastinator nonetheless feels blessed by his opportunities. “The decisions I’ve made are fulfilling and I’ve gotten to meet a lot of fun people” said DeShaw. Don’t miss out on the opportu­ nity to see DeShaw play live. Remember the three important dates of April 22, May 7 and May 8 and be among the first to experience the music of “Ten Miles 2 Go.” For more information, vis-it DeShaw’s website at www.the- countryway. com “You feel that should be wor a stead, because of w‘ ety tells you.! l R] •y job mat soci- ou ing s » Carroll students break in Italy Success in English Department By Patrick Beck Staff Reporter Over spring break some students did more then just relax at home. Seven students from Carroll choose to study abroad with a quick trip to Italy. The class was International Engineering experi­ ence in Italy worth three credits, which the students signed up for at the beginning of the semester. The students had been meeting once a week with engineering pro­ fessor Dr. Nielsen starting at the beginning of this semester to learn Italian and to go over some of the buildings they would see. While in Italy they traveled to Venice, Florence, Maranello and, Milan just to name a few. While over seas the students visited many different museums as well as surveying some of the famous structures such as the leaning Tower of Pisa. Senior pre veterinarian, major Lenny Franzese said “ If you’re looking into taking a study abroad class, there is no better internation­ al program then the study abroad trip to Italy with Dr. Nielsen because of a complete emergence into the art, culture, food and most importantly the wine.” By Ashley Oliverio Quicknotes Professor of English Dr. Ron Stottlemyer has been named a National Endowment for the Humanities fellow, which will take him to Trinity College, Cambridge University, England, this summer, July 5 through August 13.
