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 5 What most Carroll students don't know about Reverend Jerry Lowney Dakota, South Dakota, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, and Montana. Fr. Jerry will serve in this posi­ tion for three years and is excited to hold such a position. As part of his responsibilities Fr. Jerry will be attending national sociology meet­ ings over the next three years. This coming year, in August 2008, the meetings will be held in Boston, MA. “Small colleges normally get lost with all the bigger colleges; this can prevent that,” Fr. Jerry said, referring to the impact his po­ sition holds and the positive things that it could bring to Carroll and the sociology department. But that’s not all that Fr. Jerry has been up to lately. Fie was re­ cently re-appointed to a second two-year term by Governor Brian Schweitzer to the Governor’s Youth Justice Council. According to Fr. Jerry, the council has two purposes: to find other options for children other than entering the system such as foster homes or learning centers, and to prevent de­ linquency among youth people. Fr. Jerry’s position in the council is to examine what is happening in the area of youth and criminal activity and decide how funds should be spent. By Megan Gergen Intern Writer People on Campus know Fr. Jerry Lowney as a priest and a sociology professor. But what most people don’t know is that Fr. Jerry is very passionate about many other things and is actively involved in a number of causes outside of Carroll. For example many of the departments at Carroll College have honor societies to recognize students who have excelled in the area of concentration during their time at Carroll. Students who study history have Phi Alpha Theta; whereas students who choose to study psychology can join Psi Chi. Thanks to Fr. Jerry Lowney stu­ dents who hae an interest in study­ ing sociology are eligible to be inducted into Alpha Kappa Delta. In 1995 Fr. Jerry established Alpha Kappa Delta at Carroll, but that is only one of his many ac­ complishments. As a long-stand­ ing member of this association Fr. Jerry was recently elected the regional representative for region XIII of this society. Fr. Jerry is the regional representative for a six-state region, including North PHOTO BY LINDSEY HOWARD Fr. Lowney was recently reappointed to the Governor’s Youth Justice Council. Fr. Jerry spoke very highly of the Governor’s Youth Justice Coun­ cil is and is proud to be a part of it. “We can help determine ways to keep youth people out of the system and put them into other programs.” In addition to celebrating daily masses at Carroll, Fr. Lowney ministers to other various par­ ishes in the diocese. Fr. Jerry is a great teacher and influence here at Carroll and brings a passion and commitment to a number of other activities outside of Carroll. A Closer Look Volunteering helps more than just your community and recruited interested students to By Malena Cater Intern Writer Do you need experience in your, future career field? Do you feel a lack of purpose in your life? Are you new in town and need some help meeting new people? A good way to take care of all of these problems is to volunteer. Helena has dozens of worthwhile non profit organizations that need volunteers. Non profit organizations would not be able to function without volunteers. Places like Food Share, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and The Humane Society, as well as many of our fantastic museums, would not be able to keep their doors open without volunteer help from people in the community. Recently a volunteer fair took place in the Carroll College Cube. Dozens of organizations pitched tables, distributed information, volunteer for their organizations. If you were able to make it you may have even won a few prizes. If you weren’t able to make it, the opportunity has not passed. These organizations will accept volun­ teers at any time. Of course many of you are thinking, “I would love to vol­ unteer, but I don’t have enough time.” That is exactly how I feel too. However, even a few hours a month can make a huge impact. Besides making a difference to people in the world around you, volunteering can be very reward­ ing to the volunteer. Volunteering is a great social outlet, looks good on a resume, and makes you feel like a good person. Volunteering is a great way to enrich your life while giving back to the community. If you are feeling like you need a little more substance in your life, set aside a few hours and improve your life and our community. r To find volunteer opportunities and get started, visit career/ ESPRESSO- GREAT PRICES -FREE INTERNET OPEN 7 DAVS A WEEK 6 AM-6PM 20 E Lyndale Ave Friday, November 2,2007 Volume 01, No 2
