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.

This lecture brought much controversy along with it. “I’m a mom who lost her son to a crime of hate. I’m a mom with a story to tell.” said Shepard. Shepard was to speak last year at Carroll but due to the whooping cough out break, the lec­ ture was rescheduled for this fall. The Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) and Montana Community Foundation helped sponsor the lec­ ture. Dr. Jim Hardwick, Carroll college’s vice- president of student life, was quoted as saying, “It is important for the community to under­ stand that the Shepard lecture is not about homosexuality; the Shepard lecture focuses on the need for all of us to protect human life.” Hardwick responded to the accusations against Carroll’s policy as a Catholic Church institu­ tion and the church’s standpoint on homosexu­ ality. Administration anticipated the Westboro Baptist Church’s presence at the lecture and made proper accommodations if they chose to interfere. Fortunately, Shepard’s lecture went smoothly without interruption. T. J. Reynolds of the GSA said, “We are very happy to have Mrs. Shepard come and speak to Carroll and the Helena com­ munity.” The GSA has been at Carroll for only one year, but they are capable of bringing in lec­ tures such as this one. The lecture was about promoting acceptance and toler­ ance towards all peo­ ple from all walks of life, race, color, religion and sexuality. photo courtesy of Sean Herrin, freshman, rushes for a couple extra yards in the J Saints’ 45-3 victory over rival Montana Te ch on Saturday. Story on page 10 . New Assistant Director of Community Living Hired Seinfeld coming to Helena By Molly Priddy Staff Writer The puffy shirt. Man hands. “No soup for you!” However you might think know him, Jerry Seinfeld is coming to Helena. Yes, that’s right, the man who made a show about nothing into an Emmy-winning program will put on two stand-up shows for the Helena public on November 4. Seinfeld only scheduled one show originally, but when that 2,000-seat show sold out in five hours, he agreed to a second appearance. “I was so excited when I heard the news,” says Chelsea Bond, a junior Seinfeld enthusiast. “I didn’t even think he knew that Montana existed, let alone Helena.” Although the tickets may be spendy for the average college stu­ dent (prices range from $40-$75), the experience will be worth the money. “I know it might be a little pricey, but come on, it’s Jerry!” exclaimed Bond. Seinfeld has been making audi­ ences and critics laugh for over more SEINFELD on page 12 by Mike Stratman Staff Writer There is a new Assistant Director of Community Living in St. Charles hall. Shiloh Sullivan was recently hired to take over the position that Martha Gonzalez vacated earlier this semester. Sullivan completed her bache­ lor’s degree in elementary educa­ tion from the University of Great Falls. She taught character educa­ tion at an elementary school for a year, and then middle school sci­ ence for a year at a Catholic school, she said. While she had been teaching at the Catholic school she had plans to move to Minnesota over the summer, but that did not work out, she said.
