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.

FROM THE EDITOR 2 Thank those who deserve it most by Kayla Corrigan Editor-in-chief I am delighted to mention that one of the letters to the editor this time comes from an elderly gentle­ man from my hometown. When I was a senior in high school we were assigned a project where we could either do a scrap­ book of a certain war, a certain aspect of a war or a certain soldier. I chose to do my project on a certain soldier. I picked a name out of the members of the Legion Hall in our community and it happened to be Malcolm Spooner. I set up an interview with Malcolm and went over to his home. I found out that he was involved in World War II. One of Malcolm’s sto­ ries that will be forever engraved into my mind is the one he told of Omaha Beach. He tells of the lines of dead soldiers they drove past as they cruised along the beach in their humvee after the massive battle. As I interviewed him on his adventures during the war. I found that he was involved in something that I had always been interested in when he was at war. He was a writer. He was a writer, but he was a soldier first and foremost. He was there serving our country and fighting for the freedoms that we enjoy each and every day. We formed a wonderful friend­ ship, with writing as a common denominator, and I keep in contact with him to this day. When I returned home for Christmas this year I gave him the December 8 issue of the Prospector and he must have felt the urge to write a letter to the Editor. I was surprised and glad to hear from him when I recieved this and | I thought that I should ^ enlighten students about S, who this letter was from -c and how important him 3 and every other soldier has been and still is to the United States of America. I encourage anyone who is not invovled in support organizations for the soldiers, to please join one.This is a time when they need it most. There are several different organizations that you can join in support.

The soldiers were incredibly grateful for the stockings and the people who sent them I’m sure felt that they were doing an ultimate good in keeping the moral of the soldiers up on Christmas. There is also the Yellow Ribbon Campaign which sets up here on campus once in a while. They will help you a pen pal for a certain soldier. I know that mail makes my day here and I’m just at college. I imagine that receiving mail in a place so far away from home, like Iraq would definately make a per­ son’s day. I’m glad that I recieved this let­ ter to the editor to remind me how important these men and women who have served are to all the free­ dom that we enjoy today. Get involved, pick a soldier or an organization, or just thank a veteran the next time you see them because after all, they’re the ones who deserve it the most.
