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.

— t The Prospector 2 I From the editors... October began fabulously; all of us were on fall break! The foot­ ball team posted a huge win over Rocky Mountain college and some students traveled to the Amazon on a study abroad trip with busi­ ness professor Beth Wilson. Many students stayed on cam­ pus for athletics and work while others went home to take some much needed time to relax. Now it’s back to the books. We hope that those of you that had the opportunity to go to Judy Shepard’s lecture Tuesday, Oct. 18 took advantage of it. Embracing those with different orientations than our own, especially a differ­ ent sexual orientation, whether it be gay, heterosexual, lesbian or transgender, no matter what they may be, is at the very core of the forward progress our campus needs to make. People come to Carroll to furthur their education both aca­ demically and socially. Carroll builds a community that should present us with opportunities to grow. If we are working towards coming to find ourselves as com­ pletely as we can and to establish ourselves within our community, then shouldn’t we accept and pro­ tect every member of this commu­ nity? And shouldn’t this protec­ tion and acceptance extend to all who make it up whether or not we agree with each individual of the community or condone their actions? Shouldn’t we have the opportunity to question the very issues we have always been taught as right and wrong to decide our own feelings and opinions? Judy Shepard says, “The pur­ pose of higher education is to broaden our horizons.” Thursday night’s lecture did just that and helped to bring our community one big step in the right direction. For those who attended the lec­ ture, we hope you took something away from it. “You are who you are and you love who you love, says Judy Shepard. In the future, we hope our campus provides an environ­ ment where students feel comfort­ able and safe being who they are. Special thanks to Gay Straight Alliance and the administration for making Ms. Shepard’s visit to Carroll possible. Laurel Cifala and Ann Goldes Co-editors Letters to the editor are always welcome!
