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 6 Kicks: •Hey jerk who scraped your car along the side of my parked car in a Trinity A lot and left, all I can say is KARMA! •To whoever lives above me on second floor Guad, what the heck are you doing at 2 a.m.? Rearrang­ ing the furniture in your room? Bowling? Can’t it wait until a daylight hour? Come on! •To the (not so) clever person who took their parking ticket off of their car and put it on mine - it had your plate and information on it. Maybe you should have at least moved to a new parking spot not right next to mine. 1 just put the ticket back on your car, genius. •To whoever stole my calcula­ tor from the Scola when I left for a few minutes, I hope it runs out of batteries during your test or you get busted for cheating from the notes I typed into it! Kisses: •To the guy who 1 see all over campus always packing his o- chem models, don’t worry; there is life after o-chem. You’ll survive - just keep your chin up, or rather your face buried in your book. Good luck! •Thanks to whoever picked up my keys I accidentally left in the Charlie’s computer lab and turned them into the desk worker! You’re the best! •To everyone’s favorite red­ headed coffee shop gal, thanks for making me smile everyday. It always makes my day! •Thank to all the wonderful people on campus who hold open doors when someone’s just a few steps behind them coming to the door. It’s the little acts of kindness that really make Carroll so awe­ some. •I owe much thanks to the stu­ dent who went out of their way to get my binder I left in a classroom back to me! Thank you, thank you! •My roommate is the best room­ mate ever! Without her I wouldn’t have had nearly as much fun in my first few months here. Thanks for making our little cubby hole we share feel like home. BBBS a t Carroll By Jaimie Hedrick Avery, a fifth grader at Broad­ water Elementary School, pulled out his CSI equipment: a flash­ light, camera, paperclips and finger printing materials during a match visit last spring. “We have been doing a lot of CSI activities. Lots o f ‘crimes’ go on that we have to solve,” senior Pete Lavalle told the Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) case manager. Pete and Avery have been matched since 2004. During their time together, Pete helps to encourage Avery’s interests by going along with the imaginary crimes happing at school. Pete told BBBS, “I really enjoy coming because Avery is so enthusiastic about school and life, and it makes it easy to help and have fun with him. I was able to forget about my classes for an hour.” Avery always looks forward to his day with Pete, too: “He’s my best buddy ever! He even helps me solve crimes.” Spend­ ing just one hour a week with Pete has made a big difference in Avery’s life. Big Brothers Big Sisters has multiple stories like that of Pete and Avery, yet there are still many kids who just need a little extra one-on-one time with somebody. It’s easy to become that special person in a child’s life. One or two hours a week can make a big difference for a child. BBBS offers lunch time, after school, and community based programs. We are still complet­ ing interviews for this school year so please give us a call at 442-7479 or email bbbs@bbbs- if you are interested! We would like to send out a huge thank-you to those Carroll College students and staff members who have committed to being matched again this school year or are matched this year for their first time!

Ask Dr. Brian Dear Dr. Brian, I’ve been having problems coping with the fact that Pluto is no longer a planet. I mean, it’s just something I grew up with, and now they expect me to be­ lieve that it doesn’t exist?!? Why are these scientists so fickle? Who gets to make that decision? Please, I’m in desperate need of psychological counselling. Sincerely, Space Case Dear Space Case, Though I do agree that it is unfair of them to take away what we held dearest. You have to know when to pick your battles. It’s only Pluto, the smallest and weakest planet. Actually, it may work out for the best for Pluto, because all of the other planets were just making fun of it be­ cause of its size. Morally deject­ ed, it can now assert itself as the largest non-planet (excluding the moons), which is a real morale booster for a planet with such low self-esteem. Indeed, we must accept that Pluto is gone, but not let ourselves be taken lightly. If they even think about touching Uranus, then we need to tell the scientists to back off. *Note, “Dr. Brian ” is not an actual doctor, nor is he at all a credible council. He is simply a freshman with a stubborn opinion, a mild interest in voo­ doo, and free time on his hands. Can Dr. Brian answer your burning questions? Email him at bgeer @ car- Friday, November 2,2007 Volume 91, No 2
