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.

Carroll College Student Newspaper Helena, Montana Volume 98 Edition 2 December 1,2011 Senior Farewell page 8 Tobacco forum Sixteen Carroll students and faculty members gathered in the lower cube on Tuesday, November 22, to attend the tobacco forum. Kelly Parsley from Caroll’s health sciences program and two senior leaders, Katrina Seipp and Megan Butler, lead the discussion concerning the current and possible changes of the campus tobacco policy. Tony Rosales, a sophomore biochemistry major from Great Falls, made sure to voice his opinion, “We’re going to fight our right to light.” Joined by the rest of his table, their thought on the matter was made apparent. Other students made it their goal to become more educated by asking about the changes that would be made on a smoke-free campus such as; a smoking room, consequences, and restrictions that would be put into place. Currently, tobacco is allowed on campus. “We are looking for more community feedback to be able to answer more questions about the issue,” said Seipp, the community health major from Helena. The ‘Tobacco Task Force’ is a group of professors and students who are conducting research about tobacco use on campuses. A survey they conducted in the spring of 2011 by the task force revealed that of the 511 student respondants; 22 percent were regular tobacco users, and 58 percent would be in support of the tobacco free policy. “After our information and feedback is gathered, we will present our findings to Dr. Trebon and go from there,” Parsley stated. Opinions from both sides were voiced. One student commented. “Greasy foods are unhealthy too, so shouldn’t we also shut down the STAC?” and “I feel that it is our civil liberty to be able to smoke on this campus.” Offered before and after the discussion were quit-kits and informational sheets reguarding social justice issues, surgeon general reports, the current CC policy, and the policies of tobacco free campuses. By the end of the forum, a lengthy list of questions and concerns was prepared for Dr. Trebon. “There is a lot of formality that goes along with the change, so wc are still in the early stages,” concluded Butler, a nursing major from Helena. t>Marcie McCarvel Lead Writer Lead Writer Make sure you are reading this with your back straight and pinky finger out. Then, ask one of the many seniors that attended Carroll’s fifth annual etiquette dinner on Tuesday, Nov. 15th for some more pointers on how to be proper. Twelve tables sponsored by local businesses sat six students and two representatives from a company. Students were assigned seats to tables that were hosted by sponsors in their perspective field. The guests were served a six course meal; the evening, however, was filled with more than good food and sparkling cider. Guest speaker, Martin Bustamante, an etiquette trainer from Sodexo, spoke about table manners including cell phone use, where silverware goes, appropriate conversation, and the proper meal etiquette. Bustamante travels around the country and speaks about the importance of classy dining. One of the students, Jeanna Van Hoey, dressed in business professional attire said, “It was a good brash up of basic table manners that wc don’t use frequently,” the senior biology major from Kendallville, Idaho admitted. “This is a chance for seniors to learn something of value that is done in a fun environment,” Rosalie Walsh, the director of career and testing services said. Along with the presentation and dinner, the seniors were also gifted two beneficial guides; Life After Graduation: Your S e n i o r E t i q u e t t e B a n q u e t Marcie McCarvel Cameron Powell at the Etiquette Banquet Guide to Success, and a Sodexo Etiquette booklet. “This was a very professional dinner,” said Andrew Schneller, a senior psychology major from Tacoma, Wash. “The best part was that they treated us as adults, not individuals yet to enter the real world.” The sponsors of the event included; Sodexo, A&Z, Student Assistance Foundation, Alpine Air, Michael & Glenda Seipp, JCCS, Shodair, Enterprise Holdings, Valley Bank, Carroll College Business Department. Montana Internet Corporation, Carroll College Career PHOTO BY GARY MARSHALL services, and Alumni Relations. “We absolutely could not put this dinner on without our sponsors, especially Sodexo because of the amazing food they provide,” said Walsh. When the tables were cleared, and the nicely dressed seniors cleared the room, Kathy Ramirez, director of alumni relations and institutional advancement, smiled in recollection of all of the seniors who have attended the dinner in the past five years, “this great event is something for all underclassmen to look forward to, it really is a tremendous learning experience,” she said. Football headed to the Semi-Finals Amber Kuehn Independent Record Eighteen plays. In a close game with several pivotal moments, that’s what it took for Carroll College to advance to its Matt Ritter, Lat Wipplingerand Dakota Stonehouse fifth straight semifinal. Eighteen plays for 78 yards that ate up nearly half of the fourth quarter, sustained by four third-down conversions. “The offensive coaches did a great job of calling the right plays,” Saints coach Mike Van Diest added. “A nine- minute drive, that’s what you want as a defensive coach — it makes it more fun standing on the sidelines.” The drive of the game, possibly the series of the year for Carroll, began at the Saints 22-vard line. Running back Chance Demarais took the ball 3 yards on his first carry, and followed that up with a brais­ ing 8-yard run that saw him stiff arm a defender to get the first down. Backup quarterback Dakota Stonehouse went 9 yards on the next play, the same play he had fumbled on earlier in the game. Demarais’ 3-yard ran straight over center gave the Saints yet another first down. Carroll went back to Dema­ rais on the next play, when the junior PHOTO BY GARY MARSHALL Reserve your ticket!

A Stonehouse keeper set the Saints up on third-and-6 at their own 49-yard line, and Dane Broadhead then hit Anthony Clarke with a beautiful 7-yard pass to keep the drive alive. The next two plays saw no gain, as Drew Clausen was stuffed at the line of scrimmage on his third ran of the sea­ son, and wide-open wideout Lat Wip- More Football page 11 INSIDE Carroll receives record donation, p. 5 Alum leaves $2.6 million endowment Students in Free Enterprise, p. 8 New Carroll organization brings together business leaders and students Roller derby diva, p. 9 Carroll alum, Amber Andersen, explores the sport of women's roller derby
