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.

By MOLLY PRIDDY Prospector Intern Writer November 15th was America Recycles Day, and Carroll Col­ lege celebrated in style. The good people of the SAVE club on campus hosted an open-mic night for the Carroll community. There were 12 perform­ ers, each with eight minutes to dazzle the crowd. The show started at 8:30 p.m. in the Cube. A surprisingly large crowd gathered to watch fellow students express themselves. “I was nervous that no one would show up,” said Crystine f f I feel like Ashlee Simpson — Ryan Van Dinter, Senior f f Miller, a SAVE member and junior English major. “But I’m really excited about how many people came.” Miller organized the event. All 12 talented tree-hugging acts were wonderfully diversi­ fied. The songs played ranged from the poetry-based stylings of senior Luke Larsen to the spo­ ken word poetry of senior Rory Simpson.

C e n t e r s t a g e ■ Guatemala mission Students to do work for Diocese By PAT MANNING ■ * Prospector Intern Writer Seventeen students, faculty and staff members of the Carroll com­ munity will be visiting a Guate­ mala Mission in early May. This will be an introduction for mis­ sionary work that the Helena Dio­ cese has been serving for decades. Faculty and staff members attending the trip are Fr. Dou- gald McCallum, Colleen Dunne, Patrick Harris, Laurie Fahlberg, Jim Carney and his wife, Joslyn Carney. Student participants are Katie Murray, Alex Woelkers, Logan Mannix, Kevin Jam, Drew Riley, Elizabeth Swanson, Boyd Whetzel, Katie Temple, Cheline Perry, Michael d’Esterre, Danielle Allen, Adam Zollo, and Hillary Burr. The Diocese of Helena has maintained a mission in Guate­ mala since 1964. The mission lies in the coastal highlands of Guate­ mala, about 66 miles northwest of Guatemala City. This will not be a mission trip, but a learning experience about the culture. “The intent for the trip is for students to learn about the' volunteer options and internships that we hope to build in coopera­ tion with the mission,” said Col­ leen Dunne, Associate Director of Campus Ministry. This is the first year college stu­ dents will have the opportunity to visit the mission. “It is our goal to start this trip this year and con­ tinue it every other year,” added Dunne. The trip is open to all, but the majority of the students par­ ticipating this year are upper-class students. The trip will be student-led by juniors Kevin Jam and Drew Riley. Kevin Jam stated, “Listen­ ing and seeing, those are my two goals for this trip. I hope to be able to get an understanding of the lives of the people I meet, and some insight into their perspective about a lot of things.” Discovering with hands-on ex- See GUATEMALA , Page 16
