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.

Good thing they have a veteran like Dallas Leslie to show them the ropes. “We’re a young team, pretty inexperienced,” said Leslie of the team. “But we are getting better every week. If we are playing our best by conference tournaments, we’ll be all right.” The fifth-year senior has a lot on his plate. With double majors in business management and HPE management, basketball takes up any remaining time.

The Carroll women’s soc­ cer team ended their season in Olathe, Kansas at the NAIA National Tournament. The 11th seeded Saints came out strong against 6th seeded Lee Univer­ sity and quickly set the Flames on their heels. An unfortunate and unlucky Lee goal in the 15th minute would be preceded by another Lee goal in the 26th min­ ute. Down 2-0 at the start of the second half, Carroll continued its intense play and saw freshman Hannah Young score off a Cas­ sidy Merrick assist. The match would end in a 2-1 Lee victory and end Carroll’s season. With the experience of their first national tournament, the Saints will work in the off-sea­ son to become a permanent and successful fixture at the national tournament. Carroll soccer finished the season with a 13-6-1 record. The regular season for Car- roll volleyball would end with a sweep over UM Western and a ity as well as dedication for Leslie. “The last couple of years I was in the background. I let the seniors run the show. This year it’s more of a leadership role. 1 have to be more outspoken,” he said of his new contribution to the team. “But I re­ ady do miss those guys,” he added about his graduated teammates. Although the Saints do boast a young team this year, Leslie has high hopes for their progress. “I’m looking forward to the sea­ son in general. Hopefully we can have a good enough season to get back to Kansas City,” he said.

Overindulging in the holidays Column by KATE PAUL Prospector Intern Writer Thanksgiving is over. Do you feel like a stuffed turkey? You are heading into the holiday season; will you look like a plump snowman after Christmas? Thinking about what you are eating and get­ ting some exercise will stop that from happening. Here are some calories for some of your favorite Christ­ mas goodies: • Candy Cane- 1 cane, 55 Calories • Fudge- 1 piece, 70 Calo­ ries • Sugar Cookies- 1 Cookie, 135 Calories • Cheese Cake- 1 piece, 273 Calories • Pumpkin Pie-1 piece, 284 Calories • Starbucks Hot Chocolate- 1 cup, 330 Calories • Egg Nog- 1 cup, 343 Calo­ ries • Pecan Pie- 1 piece, 400 Calories Now, multiply those calories with how many pieces you re­ ally eat. Those pounds really add up! Some experts say the average person gains a whole five to seven pounds over the Christmas season. If you don’t want to skip that cookie or piece of pie, there is another way to fight off the flab. Get some exer­ cise. Simply walking 30 minutes a day, especially during the holidays, will help stop those love handles from growing. People bum calories at different rates depending on body weight and activity. Take for example if you are 150 pounds: • Walking 30 minutes bums about 272 calories • Running 30 minutes burns about 340 calories • Stationary bike 30 minutes burns about 187 calories • Circuit training 30 minutes bums about 272 calories Keeping these numbers in mind, enjoy the holidays but remember, everything in mod­ eration!
