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.

However, this year they are going to South Bend, Indiana as-well. \There will be nine students to South Bend and nine students to Rochester,\ said Colleen Dunne, associate director of Campus Ministry. In Rochester, the students will be working in schools, community health centers, soup kitchens, a day at a Catholic Worker House, and at a foster home. They will also have a day of fun at Niagara Falls, said Dunne. The group will be headed by student leaders Garrison Westberg and Tami Caldwell. The students are split up at different sites in Rochester. Their day is organized so that they begin the day with prayer and then go to their placements. At night they come back and are taught about the Catholic Social Teaching, Dunne said. They will learn about Dorothy Day, the seven themes of Catholic Social Teaching, and how the sis ters of Rochester respond to those needs. At the schools they will be helping out with the disabled and those who have alternative learning styles, Dunne stated. The students in South Bend will all be together, said Dunne. \We're going to be working for the South Bend Center for the homeless,\ she stated. The students will be doing a cleaning or painting project, some tutoring, and possi bly some day-care, said Dunne. They will also be eating meals with the people who live at the center for the homeless. The stu dents will be spending an afternoon at the Catholic Worker House in South Bend, Dunne said. They will also have some people talk with them who have experience with the Catholic Social Teaching and how' pover ty affects the mentally ill, she said. \One of the Theology professors at Notre Dame wiio runs the Catholic Worker House is going to talk to us,\ Dunne stated. These students will be able to spend a day touring Chicago. This group will be lead by James Stupfel, secretary of Campus Ministry, and Dunne. \The Headlights program serves to acquaint people with social justice issues outside the Helena community,\ said Stupfel. Such trips can influence people to think about long-term service after college, he HEADLIGHTS continued on page 16 MUSIC, THE SAVEMOBILE AND BIOFUEL graduate from Carroll, is excited at the prospect of helping spread the word on the environmental and agricultural benefits of Biodiesel. \Montana's farmers and ranchers are some of the most significant environmen talists around, even though they probably wouldn't say it. These are the folks that are living off the land, and preserving it for future generations. These are the folks that I'm singing for,\ said DeShaw. DeShaw7 became involved with S.A.V.E. as a student at Carroll. At that time, S.A.YE. was more of a student recycling club. Since then, S.A.V.E. has expanded to a 501(c)(3) not for profit entity. S.A.V.E. aims to pro mote good habits and environmental aware ness in the Helena community. The Biodiesel-Montana Tour will wrap up in Missoula on Friday, March 3 at the Missoula Fairgrounds at 8 pm.

IMPACT CAMPAIGN BENEFITS STUDENTS by mark bisaccio prospector staff writer The Carroll College Impact Campaign could very well be the reason most students are able to come to Carroll. It is the cam paign behind most of the Carroll-based schol arship money students receive. \Impact is the name of our annual giving efforts here at Carroll,\ said Gayle Agostinelli, Director of Annual Giving. Gayle directs a group of work-study stu dents each semester who telephone people and ask them to help the Carroll community out. In the fall, the students call Carroll alumni to solicit funds. And in the spring the student callers call the friends and parents of Carroll. The campaign also sends out mailing year- round to the various constituencies of the college. To honor those people who give gener ous gifts, a recognition guild, named the St. Charles Borromeo Guild, has been set up to recognize those people who donate over a $1,000 to Carroll students.
