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.

É I Í “I l ^ 4 i m m ■ * Above: Dr. Kelly Cline above (IR Photo). by lony ¡ones staff writer If you don't know Dr. Kelly Cline, at first glance you m ight th in k he is ju s t another s tudent here a t Carroll. B u t his young looks a re very deceiving to his intelligence. Dr. Cline is m o st infam o u s know n for his astrono­ m y lectures on the Carroll cam ­ pus. Three tim es e a ch semester, Dr. Cline baffles and am azes the ^H elena com m u n ity w ith his knowledge of A stronom y and the universe. Dr. Cline did his undergradu­ ate w o rk at E a s tern Oregon U n iversity (1994-1998) where he m ajored in Physics and M a them a tics. H e th e n attended graduate school at the U n iversity of Colorado at Boulder (1998- 2003) where he earned a Ph.D . from the D e p a r tm e n t of A strophysical and P lan e tary Sciences. His field of research involved r u n n ing s u p e rcom p u ter sim u lations to t r y and under­ stand how sunspots and other m a g n e tic phenom e n a are gener­ ated deep inside th e Sun. - So we c a n see how intelligent Dr. Cline is. So intelligent t h a t his lectures have been broadcast­ ed on the H e lena com m u n ity TV channel. W h e n asked if being on TV while lecturing, D r Cline said, \N o t at all. I love talking about astronom y ! There are so m a n y exciting new discoveries being m ade these days t h a t I am ju s t happy for the o p p o r tu n ity to share things w ith the H e lena com m u n ity.\ Dr. Cline has given over 15 astronom y lectures in the last three years. The first t h a t t h a t popped into m y head after discovering the credentials t h a t Dr. Cline has attain e d in the last 10 years, is \W h y isn't he working som e­ where he can m ake a lot more m o ney?\ \I discovered in graduate school t h a t really love teaching. U n d e rstanding m a them a tics and the sciences is so im p o r tan t these days, and I have a lot of fun teaching these subjects,\ said Cline. \W h e n I s tarted looking for a job after graduate school, Carroll College was a perfect fit, a sm all college where I could really get to know m y s tudents, in a small city in M o n tana: It is exactly w h a t I was looking for, and I am very glad t h a t I'm here!\ A n d as a college, we a re glad he is here too! D r Kline added, \B ight now, we are in the m iddle of the greatest golden age of scientific discovery t h a t the hum a n race has ever k n o w n . More discover­ ies are being m ade at a faster rate t h a n any tim e before. These scientific discoveries not only give us am a z ing new technolo­ gies, b u t th e y contribute to our view of who we a re and w h a t our place is in the universe. Science is far too im p o r tan t to be left to scientists: Everyone needs to know about current develop­ m e n ts, and so I am thrilled t h a t I can help spread the news about the latest discoveries in astrono­ my.” Dr. Cline has posted the fol­ lowing dates for upcom ing lec­ tures: * \Q u a sars and Superm assive B lack Holes\ Thursday, M arch 16, 2006, 7pm * \Exploring the Moons of Jupiter\ Thursday, April (date to be determ ined) , 2 0 0 6 , 7p.m. For more information contact the Carroll College Public Relations office. WHY CAN’T CARROll ID BE USED AROUND HELENA? by mcgan gergen intern writer If you visit another school you m a y notice som e thing th e y have t h a t we here at Carroll don't. They can use their ID cards at tons of locations around their tow n . So, why can't we? As of this sem e ster Carroll students can use their ID cards to receive discounts or special prices around tow n . So, I ask, whv did it take so long? For e x a m p le, M o n tana Tech s tu ­ dents can use th e ir s tudent ID s at 52 places around Butte! T h a t's 52 c o m p a red to our eight? W h a t's w rong w ith this picture? Tech s tudents can use their ID s at such places as their local bowling alley, r e s tau ran ts, and even retail stores! As Carroll s tudents we c a n show our ID s at the Staggering Ox, Papa J o h n s , the Brewhouse, and tlie Sugar Salon. We're also able to receive special priced tickets and passes at the G reat Divide, G randstreet T h e a tre, the M v rna Lov, and Bill R o b e rts Golf. G reat Divide lift tickets are $10 for Carroll s tudents when they're norm a lly $20 for a n all day weekend pass. We're also able to receive $4 tickets for the M y rna Loy Center, w h ich r u n at $12 for adults. Now, the M y rna Loy has offered this discount to students for a while, b u t how m a n y people actually knew t h a t? I'll say this: Carroll is p u ttin g in effort to give Carroll s tudents discounts around H e lena, b u t if other schools c a n give their s tu ­ dents 52 locations and we have eight? I w a n t to know w h a t the problem is. W h y is it so hard for us to use our ID cards? 42 5 . Park Ave. phone: 1 9 5 -1212 Free Medical/Dental School Plus $1279.00 a month!
