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.

Headlights fundraises HEADLIGHTS from page 5 gives the best example of a family, which is the foundation of our society. “Students need to know before applying they sincerely wish to help others, and that it’s not a vacation. In the application stu­ dents must write an essay as to why they are interested in the trip,” said Dunne. “The trip to Rochester does not grant students college credit. However, there are more reasons for going other than credit,” Dunne said. “We want students to come to this trip with the interest to learn more about poverty.” “It is worth sacrificing spring break to Cancún,” said Stupfel. He has been involved with ministry works since high school. Through the Headlights program he has been on trips to Denver and East St. Louis, and many others. He said when he first joined the pro­ gram there were approximately 43 students. One of Stupfel’s trips included students helping out at a dry goods storage, a retirement home, a boy’s home, and a girl’s home to experi­ ence social service work. On this spring’s trip students will get involved by helping prepare meals for people and getting “One on one contact” with them. The unique thing about the sisters of St. Joseph’s is that they have a free neighborhood clinic; and all of the doctors are volunteers. The expenses are done through fund-raising and donations. Students were selected in December so they may begin with fund raising in their hometown. Here in Helena the 14 students ask for donations from the four catholic parishes. On Feb. 26, Headlights is host­ ing a spaghetti dinner fund raiser at St. Mary’s church. The students need to raise a total of $3,000 for the trip. Any extra money they raise will be used for a gift for their hosts and a reflections book on their return. SNL is coming to the Myrna Loy Center by Rebecca Coulter Staff Writer Live, from Helena, it’s Saturday Night! Saturday Night Live has come to town, and is taking place at the Myrna Loy Center in down­ town Helena. The creators of Saturday Night Live in Helena get together once every two years and put together a theatrical satire on Montana politics. The creators are focusing on “Lewis and Clark Discover Montana Legislature” as their theme. The title of this year’s spoof is “Legislature Noir.” Tickets are $12 and “Legislature Noir” will be open to the Helena community Thursday, Feb. 10, 7:30 p.m. and on Friday, Feb. 11, 8:00 p.m. Mike McNeely, newcomer to the Saturday Night Live cast said, “Those interested in theatrical arts should find this entertaining.” This includes Carroll students. Other than the events on campus, most Carroll students are unaware of off-campus life, and comedy routines such as “Legislature Noir” provided by the Myrna Loy Center is a great study break for Carroll students. Hate group hits Helena HATE GROUP from page 1 where they will first picket the University of Montana, then on to Helena on Sunday, February 13, where they will picket six local churches. Early on V-day, the group will finish their Big Sky tour in a picket against the Montana Supreme Court. From here, Westboro Baptist Church goes directly to a high school (with a Gay-Straight Alliance organization) in Colorado Springs, CO. The Southern Poverty Law Center carries a considerable vol- ume of information on Phelps, where it is noted in their “Intelligence Report” magazine that there is just over 50 members of the church, though they are “almost exclusively the extended family, by blood or marriage, of Fred Phelps, Sr.” The pickets, or what Westboro Baptist Church refers to as “love crusades” are intended to caution people at home, at work, or even at church against the “homosexual lifestyle of soul-damning, nation- destroying filth,” as stated in their website. Volleyball starts practice VOLLEYBALL from page 9 starting setter Amber Miller will all be graduating this year. “It’s hard to see them go. They’ve been such a big part of our team and incredible friends,” said Rochelle. However, the four remaining starters will surely pull the team together. Junior outside hitter Natalie Solomon has garnered numerous awards for her skills, including honorable mention to the 2004 All-Conference team. Tiffany Rochelle has received awards as well, including Frontier Conference Freshman Player of the Year in 2004, and Region I and All-Conference team selection. Junior Christie Tyrrell played a leadership role on the floor that is irreplaceable. According to Rochelle, “Christie is the quiet leader out there who leads by example and keeps us together and calm.” Junior right-side hitter, Rosie Meyn also played a key role in the Saint’s success this past sea­ son. Every team faces obstacles in the pre-season. The Saints volley­ ball team can be thankful that their obstacles are not only few, but also full of promise. Their spring sea­ son will get rolling in the coming months and eventually send them to tournaments to test their new chemistry. “I know it’s going to be a new adjustment for the team, but it’s fun,” said Rochelle. “We always have a good time.” Activism against hate is “sensible nonsense” for Carroll students by Kate Wilson Intern Writer So what are we going to do about this hate group coming to town? Well, the Associated Students of Carroll College organ­ ized a community event on February 1 entitled “Preaching Hate: Community Discussion on Religious Hate Groups.” The six churches that are to be picketed in Helena were represented, along with Lt. Governor, John Bohlinger. “We want to have a venue that is not about them, but about us,” said ASCC president Brent Koning. The pur­ pose of this event was to discuss, educate and prepare for the pres­ ence of hate groups in Helena. There is another option though. Activism. That’s right, something could actually be done. Judging from their website, press releases, and pickets, this group thrives on attention. They try to shock intelli­ gent people into emotional reac­ tions. We wouldn't want to fuel their fires. However, the extreme nature of this group is so ridicu­ lous it is almost laughable. So we could play the game. A small revo­ lution is starting; it’s all about building tolerance. Evolving. Phelps claims that he is so harsh because one cannot \preach the bible without preaching hatred.\ He uses literal interpretations and biblical references so that he never has to say or think a single thing for himself. He says that the Westboro Baptist Church members are the “only ones who love you— enough to tell you the truth.” This is not acceptable. They need to know that they are not welcome here. In order to avoid confrontation and aid further parasitic behavior, we’re going to get there first. Early Sunday morning, we’ll beat the Westboro Baptist picketers to the First Presbyterian Church (535 N. Ewing Street) with our own signs. Sensible non­ sense. Some ideas? “Where’s the Beef?” “I saved $50 on Car Insurance!” “I love Santa,” and more! Our signs will have absolutely nothing to do with their cause, but everything to do with defending our turf with active pacifism. Instead of showing up to shout back at the Westboro Baptist Church, we’ll beat them there and confuse their whacked-out souls. This kind of counter-protest the group has probably never encoun­ tered before, but the message will be clear: “what are you doing here?” Please contact me, Kate Wilson, to join “the laughable cause,” get more information or make sugges­ tions: Opinion \ \ ^RUARY 9, 2005 VOLUME 88, NO. 4
