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.
Rediscovery Student Columnist JOSH MCCORMICK Hello fellow peers, my name is Josh McCormick and 1 am a junior here at Carroll College. I am currently majoring in creative alternatives to homework and vibe exploration. I gel asked frequently, fwhat do you plan on doing with that?” I typically reply, “what can’t I do with that?” Though I also study communications and philosophy, my inner fire is fueled by forming relationships with others, interacting with nature, sharing laughs, listening to music (preferably with juicy bass), and deepening my understanding of the semi-crazy yet loving creature I call me. Over the course of this year I am excited to share some of my thoughts and inner world with you via my column \Rediscovery.” There are many elements of one’s relationships, the world around, inner being, and daily activities that are taken for granted or go unnoticed. I hope to bring to light some of these beautiful complexities of everyday life and make the ordinary a wonder to rediscover. Enjoy! The other day as I awoke from a slumber and without hesitation hit the snooze button, I realized just how unproductive it is to mindlessly lap that little button. For a second, think back to our primal ancestors who roamed the forests, caves, and lands beyond. Their internal clocks were synchronized with the rising sun and I imagine they didn’t need a cup of codec to start hunting or gathering for the day. Their living conditions demanded an instinctual kind of awareness, the snooze billion was not an option. Though we live in a much different time, being able to wake up earlier and at a consistent hour is a productive endeavor. The main factor that keeps one from sw filing down the black hole of the snooze button is finding a consistent source of motivation. This source of motivation can come in all sliapes and sizes. Maybe waking up an hour earlier allows one to make a gourmet breakfast, sip on some coffee while embracing the early rays of our mother star, or just allows time to ease into the day with a sense of clarity. For those go-getters out there the morning is also a great time to get a workout in or finish up homework that was pushed to the back burner. Outside of activities or physical incentives of an early awakening, holding positive thought patterns can also put a spark under one 's butt. Acknowledging that we have potential and abilities waiting to be cultivated, that our presence means something to others, and tliat each day allows for fresh interaction and companionship should be enough to get into gear. Waking up earlier can seem like a daunting task at first but keep at it. Sometimes using the buddy system is a great way to get the ball rolling. It can be helpful to have a partner to stay accountable and to enjoy the early morning activities with. Meet up for breakfast, hike Mt. Helena, or even share dreams from the night before (this can get weird so proceed with caution). Whatever gets that inner fire going, do that. Remember, say no to the black hole of the snooze button and yes to the path of progression.

Nate Kavanagh Lead Writer Students, faculty, staff, board members, former Carroll presidents, and Hunthausen family members gathered on the west side of the PE Center on September 13 for the ceremonial groundbreaking of the Hunthausen Activity Center (HAC), a building described as “desperately needed on campus” by President Thomas Evans. The HAC will house athletic courts, workout classrooms, workout equipment, indoor and outdoor gathering spaces, a juice-bar, and a rock-climbing wall. The HAC will be a much needed improvement upon the current fitness facilities in the PE Center. “This is truly blessed ground for me,” said Archbishop Raymond Hunthausen, the namesake of the new fitness facility. Hunthausen has a rich, lifelong history with Carroll that includes titles such as student, alum, professor, coach, and president. “I spent a lot of time here, and it was precious time,” said Hunthausen of Carroll and the site of the new center Hunthausen shared stories of not only coaching near the site, but putting in many hours trying to grow grass and picking up rocks on the practice field between Guadalupe Hall and the PE Center. “It was a simple, but grace-filled time,” reflected Hunthausen. ASCC President Jenessa McElrath, a senior public health major from Yakima, Wash., expressed her excitement for the new center after the ceremony. “The building of the Hunthausen Center is a huge stepping stone for the Carroll community, both for future students and for those who may not be able to enjoy the completed facility,” said McElrath. She went on to say that the new building is a testament to the love and commitment of the board of trustees and donors to the project and “how much they believe in the school and its students.” Evans opened up the ceremony with excitement. “This is something I think we all know you are richly deserving of,” said Evans to students in the audience. This new building will be an “opportunity to help students, faculty, staff enjoy their time more at Carroll,” concluded Evans. Evans then gave a brief history of Archbishop Hunthausen and his life long efforts at Carroll. “He is beloved by so many for so many great reasons,” said Evans. A $2.5 million gift from Sodexo and a $100,000 donation from St. Peter’s Hospital in Helena were also referenced by Evans in his opening statements. See the article on the HAC’s funding for more details on these gifts. After Evans’ welcome, associate professor of theology Brian Matz spoke of Hunthausen stating he “built a church that responds to the needs of our time.” Matz stated it is fitting that the building be named after Hunthausen citing his “pastoral care in and out of the classroom and campus.” Hunthausen’s nephew and Board of Tmstee member Tom Walsh of Missoula spoke next at the ceremony. He offered a family member’s perspective of Hunthausen as “Uncle Dutch” and as an “incredible role model.” Walsh also spoke about the placement of the new structure stating how “Dutch has been so instrumental in athletics.” The new building will wrap around the swimming pool of the PE Center and extend toward Guadalupe Hall. “It’s going to be an absolutely amazing structure,” said Walsh. Most Reverend George Leo Thomas, bishop of the Diocese of Helena and chancellor of the college, was the final More Hunthausen on Page3
