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.

Vernon Wright, Plymouth Congregational Church; Edwin Stickney, Montana Association of Churches; and James Cross, Ph.D., Carroll College moral theologian. The second panel, “The Law of Birth and Death,” featured panelists Iris Basta, attorney (alumna, 1983); Daniel Whyte, attor­ ney (alumnus, 1985); Palmer Hoovestal, attor­ ney (alumnus, 1984); Carl Hatch, attorney; and Eve Franklin, R.N., executive director, Montana Nurses Association. “Hard Choices, Tangled Decisions,” was the third panel and featured panelists Albert Oszewski, M.D. (alumnus, 1984); Patti States, M.D. (alumna, 1982); and Heather Onstad, R.N., M.S.N.

On Saturday, Aug. 20, about 200 incoming freshmen and student orientation volunteers took to the Helena streets and hauled in a batch of non-perishables that exceeded every­ one’s expectations. Last year’s orientation food drive yielded 5,000 pounds of food. This year, the students brought in 8,700 pounds! Pepsi donated 167 cases of water to keep the freshmen class hydrated as they walked and hauled cans and packages. Twelve volunteer drivers from the Helena community transport­ ed to food in vehicles back to the PE Center, where it was sorted and loaded onto the Helena Food Share truck. Carroll student and orientation co-director Hillary Burr helped direct and coordinate the walking food drive with Food Share Director Anne Waickman and Circle K President Shannon Crabtree. Carroll salutes the Helena community, which continues to support good works of our fine city. “The conference addressed the edges of human exis- tence-the thin tissue of conception, the fragility of birth and maturity, and the specter of death,” Dr. Barry Ferst professor of philosophy THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2005 VOLUME 89, NO.l
