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.

Page 4 What kind of trouble did Carroll students get into last month? Have you ever wondered what really goes on at Carroll? Nothing boring or stale, just the nitty-gritty, down and dirty details o f campus life. Wonder no more because now you can be in the loop! Listed below are all o f the incidents reported at Carroll. The funny, the shocking, even the, what the heck?!

That’s right folks, only 11 more months until you get to decide who going to be the next Homecoming King and Queen. Shocked? Exas­ perated? Curious as to what spurred public interest this early in the season? You need not worry, for this sort of thing seems to happen every election year; the general popula­ tion has had enough of the current leader and can’t wait to see who his replacement will be. It’s a process called “testing the waters.” Before the actual election process (the high school caucuses, the televised debates, the bed-racing), candidates throw their names out into the mainstream media to alert potential voters that they are in fact running for King or Queen. During this process, the candidates will make appearances at high schools all around the Western United States, try­ ing to get their names out to the potential Carroll fresh­ man. One thing that stands out about this election is the variety of candidates gird­ ing themselves for office. Some of the heavy hitting candidates for Homecoming King include such names as Ross VanBrunt, the decorated hunting veteran; Taylor Lyon (a.k.a. Tex), the relatively unknown candi­ date until this year; and Mitt Romney, former governor of Massachusetts.Other lesser known candidates in­ clude George Lund, the former Homecoming Prince turned stage actor (A Funny Thing Hap­ pened on the Way to the Forum), who only recently announced his bid for the spot of Homecoming King. The general feeling around campus is that the current adminis­ tration has led us down a slippery slope, and that Homecoming King Kevin Jam needs to be replaced. “Well, I’ve had a good run as King,” said Jam in a one-on-one interview. “I guess there’s nothing I can do but yield to the Democratic process. Eleven months from now, I’ll have to graciously step aside for the incoming King and relin­ quish the power I’ve grown so ac­ customed to wielding. I just hope the history books are forgiving to a man who tried his best.” “Bummer for me,” he quickly added. The important thing to remem­ ber now is that the election is not a popularity contest. All potential voters need to get to know their candidates as best they can before they grant him Executive Power over the entire campus. A group of well informed voters can never make a bad decision, because we need to remember, whomever we elect is there for a whole year.
