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.

Facilities and administration work hard to advance the Carroll campus. Facilities' main concern which spotlights the safety and satisfaction of stu dents is apparent through their timely and professional work. \We have a strategic priority to improve students' desires and happiness on campus. If money is spent, it has to improve the students and their satisfaction,\ said Gordon Flanders, assistant professor of business and mem ber of the budget committee. Carroll College is an ever- changing community. It is important that we strive for continuous change towards more modern living. Plans to bring St. Charles up to code involve elevators, fire escapes, a fire sprinkler system, and alarm system. Replacing the carpet alone will cost $21,000. A staff person will be hired to live in St. Charles for reasons of safety and aiding in addressing student issues and concerns. Tom McCarvel, vice president of community relations, is mak ing incredible effort to maintain and upgrade the residence halls. McCarvel notices a significant increase in respect for property as well as each other when facili ties are sustained properly. \Kids respect things that are nice. When we deliver, they (stu dents) take better care of Carroll property,\ said McCarvel. As much as $50,000 is current ly allocated in the budget with plans to replace the original mat tresses and bed frames in Guadalupe from the building's opening in 1960. \The beds have more than paid for themselves since the opening o f Guadalupe,\ said Flanders. The freshman dorm will be updated this summer including new sinks, carpet, lounge furniture, and showers amounting to $80,000. \It is still blue- sky talk about the St. Charles renovations. We want to do it but have to get estimates,\ said Flanders. A five-year plan is necessary with the budgeting process. A capital campaign to raise money for St. Charles renova tions will be organized. Carroll's goal is to connect the remodeling with the celebration of the school's 100th anniversary in 2009. Carroll has experienced a ren aissance. Five new buildings have been constructed within the past seven years. Maintaining this theme of restoration will continue to regenerate the Carroll community. 3 SANITARY DINING SERVICES by lisa potter staff writer Do you really know if your on campus meals are coming from a sanitary environment?
