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.

HOMECOMING ACTION : Photo pages inside Pages 6-7 FREE TAXI: Taxi rides to take you home after drinking Page 10 NEW NAME: South Hall finally named Page 5 Saints dominate Rocky at Homecoming by Jed Fox and Katie Stiel Carroll College defeated the battling Bears of Rocky Mountain College 35-9 on Homecoming weekend at Nelson Stadium. They were playing in front of a record crowd this year. Tickets to the game were selling like hotcakes as the Carroll Saints kicked off at 1:00 p.m. Saturday. The Saints racked up 458 yards of total offense, despite only hav­ ing the ball for 22 minutes throughout the entire game. It all got rolling with a touchdown in typical Carroll efficiency, finished by a 32 yard run by Jed Thomas into the end zone. Then, the defense got a chance to put some points of their own on the board. At first the defense, as well as the crowd thought that the Saints had gotten a safety, but Josh Schmidt jumped on the ball which was spinning loose on the grasSj and the officials raised their arms in salute of a touchdown. The defense continued its dominance throughout the game and held the Bears to only 254 total yards. The second half saw several younger team members get some playing time. Quarterback Tyler Emmert had a dash of his own to score in the third quarter. John Barnett, quarterbacking in the fourth quarter threw a pass to Ryan Grosulak, who slipped some defenders and sprinted 47 yards for the final Carroll touchdown of the day. Rocky scored in the last 30 sec­ onds of the game, failing to com­ plete the two point play. It is the first touchdown to have been scored against the Saints since the Central Washington game in late August. Coach VanDiest said “Our goal is to try to get better each was a great day of football.” The game wasn’t the only action going on Saturday. The P.E. center parking lot filled with campers, barbeques, kegs and other miscellaneous picnic items as the usual tradition of tailgating got underway. There was a drawing put on by the athletic department for ‘The Hottest Seat in the House.’ This included a chance to sit and cheer Mountain Breeze Massage. Festivities during halftime included the yearly hall of fame inductions, and bed races. The Powderpuff champions, ‘The Huns’ were announced. They won 15-0, and were coached by Josh Buis, Nick Buis, and Adam Blackler. The parade of the Homecoming royalty was also included in the halftime show. Royalty included: Freshmen Patrick Hyle and Hela Kelsch, Freshman hall as a Kirchen Minister so it was cool that the Freshmen knew a senior on the ballet. For the formal dress Jed and I wore kilts, being royalty wasalso awesome because Jed’s uncle was voted king in ‘86 and he was at the Homecoming game too.” The bed races were for students and faculty to compete in. Participants were to carry a mat­ tress with one of their team mem­ bers on it across the field, with the first to cross the touchdown line being the winners. The title went to senior team Andy Brown, Ross Gustofson, Matt Moen, Joey Stuart and Travis Williams. Senior Science for Secondary Education major Joey Stuart said, “We just kind of felt it was a hot day and we would work our best with short shorts, the faculty got a head start and we all just reached deep down inside and grabbed that inner spirit that drives us and kicked it in gear and came away with a victory.” In summation of the busy Homecoming week Patrick Harris, director of student activities said, “As a graduate of Carroll, Homecoming has always been one of my favorite weeks. It is a time to catch up with old friends and celebrate in each other’s lives and our time at Carroll. Now that I am the Director of Student Activities I get to not only celebrate old friendships but also help build new ones. I want to thank everyone who participated and got involved in the Homecoming events. I espe­ cially want to thank the sopho­ more class officers Aaron Baker, Nathan Gay, Garrison Westberg, and Sethen Sprague who put together all the student activities for Homecoming week.” JED THOMAS, SOPHOMORE RUNNING BACK, DODGES ROCKY’S DEFENSE WHILE KYLE BAKER, CENTER BLOCKS FOR HIM PHOTO BY JOEY CAMOZZI in a hot tup located by the score board during the entire game.
