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.

■ P i i . s i x - e t o r Carroll College Student Newspaper Helena, Montana Friday, December 2, 2005 VOLUME 89, NO. 3 Housing costs to drop next year By Laurel Cifala Staff Writer Trinity Hall was a great addition to Carroll when its doors opened to students three years ago. Students cite the convenience and quality of this new, apartment-style housing as one of the most attractive points of living on campus. Well students, community living just got that much more attractive. According to Jim Hardwick, Vice President for Student Life, the cost of a four-person suite in Trinity next year will drop almost $400 a semester beginning fall 2006. After carefully weighing student feedback and the drop in the number of upperclassmen students living on campus, a four person suite in Trinity will be $1,800 a semester. This is significantly less than the $2,079 that students are paying this year. Hardwick said that Student Life is working to standardized the cost of housing across cam­ pus. This year, the difference in price between St. Charles and Trinity is almost $1,000. Next year, a double-occupancy room in St. Charles and Guadalupe Halls and any room in Borromeo will cost $ 1,600 a semester. Rooms in Trinity will be only $200 more than any other room across campus next year. Eventually Hardwick hopes that this gap will be completely eliminated. This year, Trinity is not filled to the capacity that it has been in the previous two years. Students cited financial reasons as one of the main factors for moving off campus. Hardwick hopes that by making campus housing more affordable to students for the 2006-2007 aca­ demic year, students will be more inclined to stay on campus. “We want to create better options for our stu­ dents,” says Hardwick. Carroll requires that students stay on campus for at least the first two years of their education here. National studies support on-campus liv­ ing and show that students living on campus perform better academically and socially than their counterparts.

Add a place in the record books to the list. Tyler Emmert took his place as the all-time NAIA leader in total yardage in the Saints’ last home game against Rocky after he broke the record previously held by Jon Kitna, a quarter­ back from Central Washington that went on to play in the NFL. \Breaking the record is a combination of so many people. I can't take sole credit,\ Emmert says. Getting big wins and putting up big numbers will be just one of the marks that Tyler leaves on Carroll College. He now has 13,171 total yards. He also topped 12,000 yards in career passing yardage and has 12,030. Emmerfs career total of 988 comple­ tions in 1,400 attempts is just 2 shy of the NAIA record held by Dustin Dewald (1989- 91) of Iowa Wesleyan. The NAIA career record for touchdowns is 113 and the passing yardage record is 13,063. Emmert is 48-3 as the starting quarterback of the Saints. As the Saints strive for a fourth straight NAIA National Championship, Emmert will attempt to continue his winning ways.

He recently broke Jon Kitna’s record in career total yardage for the NAIA. Carroll enchanted by “Cinderella” production By Rachel Bennett Intern Writer \No singing and no talking mice.\ That is student director Sean Driscoll's explanation of Carroll's newest theatrical production, \Cinderella.\ The theater major is directing the children's play as his final project for Carroll. While Driscoll explained that the story of Cinderella is told throughout time and culture and this version is based on the French interpretation of the fable. The play also dis­ plays new Carroll talent. A veteran of the the­ ater department, Driscoll enjoys working with new actors and says it is \fun to watch them grow and really exciting to help them develop their skills.\ The words \cute\ and \awwwww\ come to mind after viewing the play. It was a much- condensed version, which might have made it somewhat difficult to follow, but most have heard the Cinderella story already. New Carroll talent was especially evident in the characters of the Fairy Godmother, played by Kim Patrick, and Cinderella's stepfamily. The stepsisters, Jenna Kesler and Brianne Handwerk,added vast amounts of humor as they flounced their way through violent danc­ ing with Galafron (Mike Hoistad) and more CINDERELLA on page 16 Finals I nside page 3 Charlies Film Festival info page 8 Sports highlights pages 10-12
