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.

B a k e r g e t s o f f s e a s o n r e p a i r s by Dustin Barber Staff Writer Kyle Baker is accustomed to spending his off-season engulfed in a vigorous lifting and condi­ tioning regiment. This winter however, has brought Carroll College’s starting center a change in scenery. The Fighting Saints starting center underwent arthroscopic sur­ gery to repair a hole in the labrum of his right shoul­ der. In layman’s terms the labrum is the tissue that fastens the shoul­ der into the sock­ et. Dr. John Michelotti per­ formed Baker’s surgery at St. Peters Surgery Center on Monday, Jan. 10. The surgery con­ sisted of a series of four arthro­ scopic incisions to repair the hole in the damaged labrum. During the intense surgery, operation an anchor was placed in the shoulder to hold it in a stationary position. After the anchor is set in place the hole in the damaged labrum was stitched back together. “The surgical procedure took about five hours to complete and Dr. Michelotti was confident that the operation was successful,” Baker added. According to Dr. Michelotti a typical recovery schedule for Baker’s procedure includes at least four months of intense physical therapy and an individually tai­ lored amount of normal daily operation to regain the shoulder’s full strength and durability. Baker radiates optimism through a smile, while still acknowledging that he has some tough months ahead. The comple­ tion of the recovery period will reduce a shoulder hat is at full trength and able o withstand the ear and tear of Kyle Baker recovers after an immobile for the onset of the spring semester. “I’m still adjusting to the lack of mobility and the inconvenience of not having one of my function­ ing upper extremities,” said Baker. As the class loads begin to mount Baker sits back and rolls with life’s punches. The center chuckled, “Keeping a positive atti­ tude is critical and the medication is making that job a little easier.” From the locker room by Ashley Moore Intern Writer Men’s Basketball: Right now Carroll’s men’s bas­ ketball team is 16-5 and 4-2 in the Frontier Conference.
