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.

The event, held in the Cube, offered a presentation on biodiesel, and an examination of the environmental benefits of biodiesel as an alterna tive fuel. Secondly Matt Elsaesser, founder and chairman of S.A.V.E, along with S.A.V.E. affiliates unveiled the newest member of their group, the \Vegi- Mobile\. The \Vegi-Mobile\ is a 1985 F- 350 Truck run completely off biodiesel. This truck was donated to S.A.V.E. by Carroll College Professor, Murphy Fox and his family. The biodiesel used to run this truck is made from recycled frying oil, donated from Bert and Ernie's. Matt Elsaesser says that the use of frying oil as biodiesel is one of the greatest things about the \Vegi-Mobile\ in terms of recy cling. He notes that some local merchants will even pay people to take their used frying oil. Higher petroleum prices have made biodiesel an increasingly sought-after fuel in the nation's efforts to decrease dependence on fossil fuels. It produces far less air pollution than regular diesel and can be made from any animal, plant or cooking grease (www.theledger.com.). Join S.A.V.E. on December 2nd -9th for the upcoming plastics col lection at The Former National Guard Armory (Parking lot near the YMCA, 1100 N. Last Chance).
