As Perno era ends, hope remains for UGA baseball
Double down on debt

Number of Undergraduates Taking Loans Since 2008, the number of undergraduates getting loans at the University of Georgia has risen by nearly 8,000 students according to the UGA Factbook.
Amount of $ Taken by Undergraduates
$100 mil $90 mil $80 mil $70 mil $60 mil $50 mil $40 mil $30 mil $20 mil $10 mil
The cost of tuition has forced UGA students to take out significantly more loan money, almost doubling since 2008 according to the UGA Factbook.
Though they impressed many with unexpected series wins over Georgia Tech and Florida in the season’s final week, the Diamond Dogs ended 2013 in a manner that belies the overall course of the program since 2008. Across the last four seasons, Georgia’s baseball team made only one postseason appearance. This season, the team failed to even make the Southeastern Conference Tournament after finishing last in the SEC standings. So it is perhaps unsurprising that head coach David Perno resigned in the wake of a campaign that saw the Bulldogs (21-32, 7-20 SEC) post their secondworst SEC record since pre-2000 and skid through a PERNO nine-game losing streak. Georgia now turns to newly hired head coach Scott Stricklin, whose ability to lead Kent State to a College World Series berth in 2012 gives the Athletic Association hope he can do the same in Athens next year. “Scott was the right fit, and the right person to lead our program into the future,” McGarity said in a Wednesday press conference. “It’s clearly evident to us that he gets it and know what it takes to get the job done.” At the same time, the last few seasons for Georgia baseball also mark an unfitting end to Perno’s 12-year tenure at the helm of the program – one that began with plenty of promise. “You have a year like this, this isn’t what Georgia’s about and I’m definitely not about,” Perno said following the team’s season finale on May 18. “I’m not accustomed to this. It’s something that I’m not going to live with. These kids don’t deserve it. You see how they fight. They fought when there was no reason to fight anymore.” Perno, a Georgia alumnus and Athens native that played on the school’s 1990 national championship baseball team, remained well-loved by his players to the very end. Many were naturally unwilling to watch their head coach leave the program. “I love coach Perno to death. I think he needs to be the coach here. He’s had my back these four years. I think that he is the best guy for this job because he is the face of Georgia baseball. I don’t see anybody else doing it,” senior shortstop Kyle Farmer said. “Great guy, great coach. I love him, but that’s kind of out of my control. I’d love to have him back,” sophomore outfielder Jared Walsh said.

Vol. 120, No. 35 | Athens, Georgia
By Randy Schafer The Red & Black If nothing is resolved on Capitol Hill by July 1, students may want to rethink their financial aid plans. The interest rates for federally subsidized loans is set to double from 3.4 percent to 6.8, which makes applying for loans a more delicate process. “I’m an independent student,” said 18-year-old sophomore Melissa Lehman. “I realize that graduating school debt-free is not really possible now … and I know that more than half of everybody that went to college has debt.” On May 31, President Barack Obama urged students to keep a watchful eye on their state representatives during a press conference. And he criticized members of Congress, in hopes they would rectify House Resolution 1911, which was drafted to combat the imminent interest hike. In the midst of the political turmoil over the resolution, the president acknowledges the severity of student debt. “Since most of today’s college students were born, tuition and fees at public universities have more than doubled,” Obama said. “And these days, the average student who takes out loans to pay for four years of college graduates owing more than $26,000.” And Lehman is no dif-
ferent. Even with two grants and a part-time job, she is already $8,000 in debt after her first year of accepting subsidized loans — and she expects to be $35,000 in debt by graduation. From fiscal year 20072008 until 2011-2012, the number of undergraduate subsidized loans UGA issued has almost doubled from 4,420 to 8,059, with an increase of loan funds issued from $16,112,750 to nearly 32 million. “Unless they make school more affordable, there’s not really a solution,” she said. “You need a college education to get a job now, it’s just not feasible.” There is a small silver lining if the interest rate doubles: according to the Office of Student Financial Aid, the shift in interest rate only affects students taking out loans after July 1. Students who have taken out loans prior to July 1 will accrue the previous 3.4 percent rate. OSFA Coordinator of Outreach Joseph Boyles warns though, that “this increase is not a possibility, it is current regulation.” But there are some students, regardless of possible interest rates changes, who expect to be drowning in debt post-graduation. Law student Kabir Sharma is looking at $85,000 of debt — a year into his graduate program. See LOANS, Page 3

Possible railway stop in Athens By Stephen Mays @stephen_mays Athens could potentially become a stop along a “highspeed passenger” railway connecting Atlanta with Charlotte, N.C. and eventually “other metropolitan areas along the East Coast
(Washington, D.C., New York and Boston),” according to the Georgia Department of Transportation’s website. Six possible routes are currently being studied by the Georgia DoT on behalf of the Federal Railroad Administration as a

part of the Atlanta to Charlotte Passenger Rail Corridor Investment Plan. “One of those routes would utilize the existing CSX Transportation right-ofway between Atlanta and Chester, S.C., via Athens,” according to an AthensPatch article. The project would provide better regional connectiviy, reduce occupancy of interstates, improve travel times, provide an alternate mode of travel, improve energy efficiency and promote economic development among the region, according to the project’s outline on the DoT’s website. The only public meeting in Georgia concerning the project was held June 4, from 4-7 p.m. in Suwanee. Such open houses are used to gauge public opinion concerning the railway. As of now, no one route is being considered more than another, said Natalie Dale, the media and government relations liaison for the Georgia DoT. “Public opinion is very important in a project of this scope,” Dale said.

Only weeks until the completion of Rutherford Hall’s renovation, students and employees at the University of Georgia prepare for the June 27 commencement ceremony. This ceremony will recognize the completion of what will conclude a construction development that took more than one year and approximately 350 contracted construction workers to build, said the project’s director Eric Kerley. “We broke ground May 21 , so it will be about 14 months [of work],” Kerley said. Fortunately, Kerley, an employee of the Juneau Construction Company, said construction saw little hassle and “nothing outside the normal project delivery.” Early on, the plan did face some opposition coming from members of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, who, according to a previous Red & Black article, said it was a “historic building.” The new hall occupies 80,263 sq. feet near the center of campus. Despite its brand new status, Rutherford will have rates for a double, private-bath room for $3,117 each semester in the 20132014 school year, almost $200 cheaper than Myers Hall. According to a Red &
Black article, the total cost of the construction was projected around $22 million, and UGA barely hit the mark, with the University Architects budget of $21,762,624. With the official completion date set at July 18, UGA will hold the dedication ceremony in front of the constructed hall at 9:30 a.m. While many of the keynote speakers are not set, the list includes guests such as President Michael Adams and a representative from University Housing. “I do know we have a student that is potentially going to be speaking, and then our executive director for housing will be speaking,” said Keith Wenrich, deputy director for UGA Housing. “And I’m pretty sure Dr. Adams will be speaking as well.” Just as the workers are excited to finish the building, the students who will be living in it are also thrilled to see the construction near its conclusion. “I’m looking forward to living right in the heart of campus and being across the street from my major classes and a dining hall,” said David Harshbarger, a sophomore mathematics and history major from Milledgeville. “And the facility should be really nice.” The new residence hall, a recreation of the 73-year-old dormitory with the same name, will house “261 residents with a home-away-fromhome,” according to the UGA Housing website.

CRIME NOTEBOOK Trespassing by ‘divine intervention’ A University of Georgia police officer entered the Thomas Textile Building in the early hours of the morning on June 4. The officer entered the building located on the corner of Whitehall Road and South Milledge Avenue past the State Botanical Garden of Georgia to respond to an intrusion alarm. Inside, he found both entry doors unescure along with the trespasser. The officer questioned her as to her being on the premises, to which she responded saying she entered the building to “use the restroom and to obtain temporary shelter” and said she was brought there by “divine intervention,” according to the police report. After notifying the contacts for the building, “nothing inside the building appeared to be disturbed or missing,” according to the report. Since the building had been unsecure and the woman had not entered for an “unlawful purpose,” the homeless woman was not charged or arrested. She has, however, been barred from all of UGA’s campus for the next two years.
Theft of cigarettes leads to arrest Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to a call about a theft of a pack of cigarettes valued at $5.60 at the Lay-Z Shopper convenience store located on Clayton Street, where the suspect “walked out of the store without paying,” according to the report. Officers spotted a man
matching the suspect's description, and when confronted, the man fled. After finally apprehending the suspect, 18-year-old Aumand Tate, the officer searched and found only a “small amount of Marijuana rolled in a cigar wrapper” and a “defecated” pair of pants, according to the police report. Tate was transported to the Clarke County Jail and charged with six seperate incidents. — Brad Mannion
UGA student on bicycle suspected of kicking, denting car A cyclist was reported to have kicked a dent into the passenger door of a car on June 3, as it appeared to the driver that “the cyclist was upset that [the victim] didn’t let him go in front of him,” according to the Athens-Clarke County Police Department’s report. The suspect, a graduate research assistant at the University of Georgia, called the victim’s place of employment to complain about his driving. The victim checked the number on the caller ID, obtained the name of the suspect and gave the name and number to police. According to the report, the suspect admitted to police he was “the bicyclist,” but he “denied kicking the door causing a dent.” But the suspect did confess to “[knocking] on [the driver’s] window and [giving] him the middle finger.” — Brad Mannion

Athens emergency management stays ‘abreast’ of summer storms BY Stephen Mays @stephen_mays With summer approaching, residents among the southeast expect to see an increase in thunderstorms and other severe weather that comes this time each year. The recent tornado damage in Oklahoma — as well as flooding in Dade, Walker and Hall counties in Georgia — was the result of storms in May. Jonathan Ingram, a third-year finance major from Walker County, said flooding is a common occurrence in his hometown of Lafayette, recounting that when he was in high school, a few businesses on the Western portion of town had to close and repair due to flooding. “They were pretty much underwater,” Ingram said. Ingram said his driveway was washed out in the flooding that occurred on May 20, but said, “It wasn’t as bad as last time.” Beth Burgess, the emergency management administrator for Athens-Clarke County, said Athens typically faces thunderstorms this time of year, some of which can become severe and possibly produce damaging winds, hail or tornadoes. Burgess said
Athens's emergency management works to lessen damage caused by natural and man-made disasters for the community. Courtesy Matthew Straubmuller Athens-Clarke County works with the National Weather Service to “stay abreast of what the radars indicate.”
Burgess said any time weather shows signs of severity, emergency management will begin making necessary
plans. “We view anything that could be a threat to life as an emergency situation,” Burgess said. Athens does utilize outdoor warning sirens, but those are only sounded under a tornado warning — a time when a tornado has either visibly been sighted or when the radar indicates circulation within a storm that could become a tornado. “Sirens are only meant to be heard outside though,” Burgess said. “We strongly advise residents to monitor local media and have a working weather radio.” Flooding becomes an issue in Athens near the two rivers that run through the county, the Middle and North Oconee Rivers — both of which have respective flood stages of 18 and 19 feet. As of May 30, the Middle Oconee River was at 1.66 feet and the North Oconee River was at 4.79 feet. During the flooding Hall County experienced on May 20, the East Georgia chapter of the American Red Cross helped provide aid. “A shelter had already opened by 7 p.m. for about 100 residents of an apartment complex in Hall County,” according to a
public service announcement sent by Eric Hankins, a member of the East Georgia chapter. Located in Athens, the East Georgia chapter services Banks, Barrow, Clarke, Elbert, Franklin, Greene, Hart, Jackson, Morgan, Madison, Oconee, Oglethorpe, Stephens
and Walton counties, according to the ARC’s website. Athens-Clarke County also works with ARES, Amateur Radio Emergency Services, to aid in communication during emergency situations.

LOANS: Subsidized loan rate ‘constrains’ finance options ➤ From Page 1 Although he can no longer apply for subsidized loans as a graduate student, Sharma still receives federal PLUS Loans and other Direct Unsubsidized Loans. “Due to the Budget Control Act (BCA) of 2011, beginning with the 2012-2013 academic year graduate students are no longer eligible for a Federal Direct Subsidized Loan,” Boyles said in an e-mail interview. Prior to the 2012-2013 year, the number of UGA graduate subsidized loans increased from 3,366 (FY 2007-2008) to 4, 089 (FY 2011-2012). Although the increase is minimal compared to the undergrad numbers, the amount awarded to graduate students increased from $23,854,643 to nearly $31,005,074. When Sharma attended California-Irvine as an undergrad, he accrued $40,000 of debt, doubling since his move to Georgia in 2011. He expects to be $120,000 in debt post-graduation. “It’s problematic,” Sharma said. “You’ve already finished about 80 percent of your trip, you know? And loans are just the easiest way.” He’s not scared of his future debt, but it does shape his postcollegiate decisions. “I don’t brood over it,” Sharma said. “I’m calm, mostly because I’m in law school. And I’m hoping I will get a decent job … but what worries me is the lack of flexibility and it makes what you do very narrow with your life.” His financial sacrifice for education may leave him pigeonholed in the future. “Like lenders, I’ve talked to Equifax twice,” he said. “And they’ve told me people who have education debts have a harder time getting car loans, home loans, so-on-and-so-forth. That plays a pretty big part explicitly and implicitly.” And he debates if his choice of job reflects his amount of debt. “Even if I get multiple opportunities, it basically constrains me, taking me to one path, which is high-pay,” Sharma said. “Even if it’s high-pay, high-stress, or a really boring job, I’m more inclined to pursue that compared to a medium or low paying job that could be entertaining or fun.” Lehman would likely agree.

“Obviously getting a job is going to be a little more important to me than someone who hasn’t [taken out loans],” she said. “And also I’m probably not going to want to move either, because that’s just another added expense.” Sharma believes that his post-collegiate debt will even intervene in his romantic affairs. “When I think about my debt, I basically just have to go for money,” he said. “And it can interfere with having a family and it delays that for me.” As July 1 approaches, stu-
dents will have to wait and wonder about their financial futures. And Lehman, only a year into her education, plans to keep working her part-time job at the UGA Calling Center — and applying for scholarships. She confides in her mother for financial advice and Lehman is skeptical if she will need the loans her entire collegiate career. But for now, like many others, she has no other choice. “It sucks,” Lehman said. “But you can’t do anything about it.”

Starbucks makes brave stance with ban
or those of you who like to enjoy a cigarette with your warm cup of Joe, you may be out of luck. As of last Saturday, June 1, Starbucks enacted a ban on smoking within 25 feet of their establishments in an attempt to counteract the rapidly growing trend of smoking a cigarette as you sip your coffee. Starbucks is a prominent, booming business that makes money from smokers and non-smokers alike. Exiling smoking from its property puts the chain at risk for wide public scorn and anger from those who like to get their caffeine and nicotine fix simultaneously. Starbucks doesn’t seem to care. The conviction in their stance makes a bold proclamation that Starbucks puts the health and comfort of their customers above the risk of economic loss or public outrage. The position is admirable whether you agree with the ban or not. Starbucks didn’t want their brand to be associated with smoking, so they did something about it. It's refreshing to see a company come down from the corporate pedestal and care about the well being of their customers. The rarity of Starbucks act makes me yearn for more businesses that remember to consider the customer while making their plans of economic domination. I’m not trying to say that profit isn’t important and that businesses shouldn’t do everything they can to succeed — competition is one of the many great things about this country. However, far too often people get so caught up in the growing dog-eat-dog, economic side of everything they fail to remember that people are what matter. So while Starbucks might endure some heat from those who want to smoke where they choose, maybe it’s important to remember that — whether you agree with the ban or not — at least they have made a stand that considers the individual instead of exclusively the company’s pockets. —Amber Estes for the editorial board

Terror and tragedy should not define us A couple of days ago, I was reading an account of the 2013 Phoenix Comicon on Wil Wheaton’s blog. On the third day of the convention, the fire alarm went off — something, in his experience, that was not uncommon. It was probably just another kid who thought it would be funny to pull the alarm. However, as everyone filed out of the convention center, he was struck by the reaction of the teens and young adults around him. “I heard lots of them talking about the bombing in Boston, and how they were genuinely afraid that there was some kind of bomb or something inside the building,” Wheaton wrote. “It says something about the different worlds we’ve grown up in, that my first reaction was ‘not this again’ and theirs was...’I hope it’s not a bomb.’” We are a generation overshadowed by terrorism and tragedy — I was 4 years old when the bomb went off at the 1996 Olympics and 9 years old when the planes hit the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. We have lived through the shootings at the movie theater in Aurora, Colo., at Virginia Tech and at Sandy Hook Elementary. Most recently, we watched the aftermath of the bombing at the Boston Marathon. When I was about 7 years old I started taking karate lessons, and it didn’t take long for my instructors to

introduce the concept of self-defense. For me, it was an eye-opening and scary experience — I began to see the strangers around me as a potential threat. For a while, I didn’t even like leaving my parents to pick out apples on the other side of the aisle at the grocery store. Eventually, my paranoia faded into healthy self-awareness. However, mindfulness of danger and knowledge that strangers can be a threat are ideas that remained — reinforced over and over again with every tragedy that plays itself out over the nation and the news. Tragedy is nothing new. Our parents and grandparents grew up in the midst of wars that tore apart a generation of men and women and wiped cities off the face of the earth. But those tragedies were defined — they had their place and their rules, and you could trust that the people around you weren’t your enemy. It’s hard to be so trusting when you can’t tell if your neighbor’s pressure cooker holds beans or a bomb. Although the National Consortium
for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism shows a decreasing trend in the number of acts of terror between 1970 and 2011, the CIA believes that terrorist attacks will become increasingly sophisticated and lethal between now and 2015. So what does that mean for us? It means that our generation will continue to be overshadowed by tragedy unless something changes. We have the power to improve international relations, to meddle less in the affairs of other countries and to care for the people in our own. Whether this means requiring background checks for the purchase of firearms, improving access to mental health care or just taking the time to talk face-to-face with our neighbors and friends, our generation has the power to start reversing the trend the CIA has predicted. I’m not saying it will be simple or easy. Even if our generation has the right to be scared, we have to understand that not every person, religious group or race means us harm. We have to learn to be able to cross the aisle and grab a pound of apples without our parents. — Jessica Norton is a sophomore from Tucker majoring in journalism and chemistry
Citizens should be able to vote on legislation “It’s not tyranny we desire; it’s a just, limited, federal government.” – Alexander Hamilton
ow can we attempt to maintain a truly representative democracy within a nation as diverse and vast as our own? Just as Great Britain once sought to rule over us without proper representation, our own federal government now seeks to bind us through its own regal corruption. We vote for our representatives by a majorityrule — this implies that simply because there are a few more numbers influencing one opinion over the other that the best conclusion can actually be formed. This is not the case as so much of our nation argues fundamentally against itself. I accuse our legislative system of folly, for by its very nature and ignorant design it can never achieve the equality required to make the most appropriate decisions necessary for our nation. The people are not properly represented because the people are not properly invested enough in the decisions which their representatives are making. I cannot blame the people as it is nearly impossible to be invested in a system so large and often times so irrelevant to voters that it has become an incomprehensible mass of bickering and bribery. We must base our decisions on votes strengthened in quality and clarity rather than in the indistinguishable majority. The United States elec-

tion and legislative process is not justified, for there is such bitter conflict within our nation in regards to politics that there must be some cause, one which must be influencing all citizens for so many such citizens to be so painfully and irrevocably influenced. This cause is our illrepresented and inconsiderate elective process in accordance with the inappropriately chosen “representatives” which rise in corruption in this country. We do not know our senators. We do not know our representatives. They have been advertised and sold to us just like any other product on television which we do not really care to understand. The problem is that they must be sold to us because there is no effort to discover them
properly for ourselves. It is easiest to be granted permission to trust these politicians through their own respective and typical media outlets, thus we sit in front of our televisions and nod complacently as we are convinced of the things our parties tell us to believe — often time in inextricable extremity. The only true way to enact a majority rule is to give citizens the opportunity to gather together with their voices applicable to address, discuss and vote upon certainly necessary legislative motions. If a citizen has a concern, opinion or desire to influence legislation, then it should be possible for them to perform such a valiant act in the most direct way possible — by voting upon it. This true influence by the people is possible. If we localize then we can diminish the chaotic and corrupted. U.S. Senate, House of Representatives and Supreme Court to a few necessary duties, for as
long as people truly have the desire to be heard then there cannot be such a government which primarily sells, lies and manipulates for the highest bidder. Bring representation back to the people by means of houses and senates of supreme specificity and of actual power and influence within their designated districts and states. Let these strengthened local governments be guided by several important constitutional principles, but even with those ideals we must allow our states, regions and districts to decide for themselves. The only supreme law over these courts and senates should be that there can be no monetary influence into the legislation other than the necessary payment of the hard-working employees and lawyers of the state alone. A company is absolutely not a person, and a corporation is, without a doubt, certainly not an individual person — these objects are to be left to the market and are not to meddle with legislation apart from the equal and individual votes of their own employees or affiliates who are, in fact, real persons. is is to allow the roots of corruption, and therefore to inevitably allow corruption itself. It is time, once again, to beg for candid representation — for as Thomas Jefferson once said, “Every generation needs a new revolution.” — Charles Drury is a sophomore from Madison majoring in English education

Young Democrats outshine College Republicans in political unity
have a great deal of respect for the Young Democrats (YDs) at UGA. I staunchly disagree with most of their key policy positions, and I have only attended a single meeting. However, I still respect them. More often than not, I feel that I cannot say the same about the College Republicans (CRs), even though in the fall I frequently wrote in favor of Mitt Romney’s candidacy relative to Barack Obama’s. Why? Because the YDs believe in something. In such a solidly red state as Georgia, the students willing to devote their time to organizations like the YDs or Students for Barack Obama are committed to their cause and the ideology on which it rests. Though many may have political aspirations, one has to doubt that their primary motivation for membership is making a name for themselves Brian Underwood in the Democratic Guest Columnist Party and moving up the political ladder. No, their primary motivation is their ideology and their conviction that is correct — even when it is frequently not. My experience with the CRs has been quite the opposite. Though I do not mean to cast aspersions on those in the CRs who do possess strong ideals — though there are less than you would think — I have encountered far more of the same, smarmy sycophants trying to rub elbows with Atlanta and Washington than I have those trying to effect true political change. To elucidate, my perception of the majority of CRs is not vastly different than the average student’s perception of the majority of SGA — it is an organization more concerned with networking and résumé-boosting than significant action. As an example, I engaged in a handful of debates with both the CRs and the YDs while I was the president of the Young Americans for Liberty. It never ceased to amaze me how willingly the CRs
“me-tooed” the YDs, not when it exhibited a rational change in principle on the part of the CRs such as the widespread support for marriage equality in their own ranks, but when they ought to have stood firm in their principles. The sad truth is that many of them, like the generation of Republican leaders currently in politics, simply do not have principles. They care little for the pro-business, pro-market, pro-small government stance they ought to be taking — and superficially pretend to support — and are more concerned with winning more seats than the Democrats. What they do with those seats seems to be irrelevant as long as the Republicans have them. The reaction following Mitt Romney’s defeat on election night demonstrated as much. Several bemoaned not having a “true RINO” run, implying that only a man who pretends to have Republican values in the primaries but abandons them shortly afterwards is worth running. This is why the Republican Party is in need of an immense facelift. It still buys the now twice failed models of men like Dick Morris and Karl Rove that believe all the Republican Party needs to do is pay lip service to family, faith and the flag, and the Republican voting bloc will turn out in droves on Election Day. The problem is that over the years the lack of substantive discussion of ideas in the GOP has distorted it beyond recognition on all but social issues which are increasingly becoming insufficient to maintain support, particularly as the nation’s populace has adopted a more liberalized view on them. The Romney campaign’s inability to refute or distinguish itself from the Obama campaign on a moral level contributed to its demise. The inability of the CRs to do the same will only produce future defeats — for themselves and individual rights. To be sure, there are a handful of devoted CRs less interested in photo ops with Gov. Nathan Deal and more concerned with defending individual rights as the GOP ought to do. I have interacted with a few of them, and I have nothing but my sincerest respect and support to offer. They know who they are, and through their efforts they will continue the reforms initiated by the Tea Party to compel the Republican Party to stand on the principles it allegedly holds.
They are the real future of Republican politics because they understand the moral nature of their cause, and they are fighting a culture war against over a century of intellectual default in both parties. My advice to the rest is as follows: you are fighting a losing fight. Either you will lose on Election Day when you have no alternative to the Democrats to offer, or you will lose in the long run as you accept the Democrats’ conclusions and become increasingly like that which you claim to oppose. Our nation will suffer as a result. Actually become the party of business, of enterprise, of responsibility for oneself and the pursuit of your own interests — all terms the Democrats use to label you which you quickly discard, apologize for and reject — because otherwise, regardless of if you by some happenstance ascend to political office, you have already lost. You have sold your soul and betraryed anything which made you “Republican” in the first place. — Brian Underwood is a junior from Evans majoring in history and political science

College Republicans not "smarmy sycophants"
s one of the largest and most active College Republican organizations in the United States, the UGA chapter has many roles to fill in many capacities. With its responsibilities to its parent Republican Party on the local, state and national levels, around the UGA campus and within Georgia politics, the UGACRs have significant duties in front of them at all times. Underwood’s recent article alleging that UGA College Republicans (UGACRs) are a bunch of “smarmy sycophants” who lack any unity beyond their desire for self-advancement is deeply offensive and simply untrue. Much like the national Republican Party, the members of College Republicans often disagree on what stance to take in regards to social issues — such as marriage equality. However, even with these differences in policy preferences regarding social issues amongst members, the College Republicans stand for small government and free markets — and not in a superficial way as has been suggested. A limited government is the key principle that this organization promotes, as is evidenced by the events the College Republicans hold in Tate Plaza where conservative ideas are promoted. This issue is the core belief of the Republican Party, and those who disagree could scarcely call themselves Republican. There’s no doubt that the club’s members expect their personal political interests to be facilitated. Members frequently go
on to top-tier law schools, congressional and state-level staffs, high-level campaigns and private business, and the UGACRs seek a truly meaningful and interesting political experience in return for their active involvement. However, this personal interest is universally secondary to each member’s desire to see the nation improve through the election of Republican officials. It was this desire that motivated more than 20 members to go on four campaign trips to assist the Romney campaign in battleground states. As we knocked on countless doors under the sweltering heat of the Florida sun, the idea consuming each of our thoughts was not some highly-polished resume to which we could add a few more bullet points, but rather a vision of a nation led by a man who understood the principles of a free
market and the mechanisms by which it was meant to operate. If Underwood wishes to argue that our stances on fiscal policy are not sufficiently conservative and ought to coincide more with his own, then he need simply call us bad Libertarians. Although in doing so he ought to bear in mind that we are not Libertarians, and that a College Republican is not a member of the Young Americans for Liberty (YAL). Indeed, I could make the argument that College Republicans have shown themselves more invested in enacting actual change than their counterparts at YAL. To accuse our

members of insincerity because we are afforded future opportunities based on our successes is ludicrous. At the end of the day, we are all bound not by our desire to work in a senator’s office, but by a burning love for the United States, our fellow Americans and the wonderful world of politics. We all agree on a key set of ideals which have and will make this country exceptional. There’s a common language term with which our political philosophies all coincide, and it’s what motivates each one of us, from the first-time attendee to the chairman, to stay so dedicated and involved in politics — it’s called Conservatism. — College Republicans

UGA welcomes oncoming freshmen By Chet Martin @chet_martin A University of Georgia Bulldog’s life begins with shouting. That is, at least, the hope of the UGA stunt orientation leaders that will guide thousands of incoming freshmen around UGA's campus this summer. Early in each of the two-day orientation sessions, the twelve orientation leaders gather
the incoming freshman in Tate Student Center Plaza — home of megaphone preachers and dancers — and lead the future students in their first chant of “ G O O O O O O O O DAWGS!” “Some students are a bit quiet,” said Mel Baxter, an intern from Leawood, Kan. working with the New Student Orientation program — and a former orientation leader herself.

By Amy Werner @amyewerner University of Georgia President Michael Adams will end his presidency the same date soft benefits are slated to start for domestic partners of benefits-eligible employees. The letter sent by President Adams to Chancellor Huckaby and the Board of Regents to secure these soft, or voluntary, benefits is two—fold. It recognized soft benefits and highlighted the absence of full health benefits for domestic partners. “It’s extremely important in terms of being able to recruit and stay competitive for the very best faculty in the country,” said Janet Frick, chair of the University Council’s Human Resources Committee. Chancelor Huckaby had no problem with soft benefits, which are already funded by employee contributions, not state funds. These benefits include dental, vision, optional life insurance and accidental death and dismemberment. Neither Chancellor Huckaby nor the Board of Regents explicitly said no to the question of full health care for domestic partners not funded through the state. Huckaby said it would have to be “privately funded, privately insured, privately
President Michael Adams granted soft benefits to the domestic partners of UGA employees. file/Staff accounted for and privately administered.” Soft benefits for domestic partners are not uncommon among universities. UGA is 10 years behind Georgia Tech, which established soft benefits in 2003. To opt for soft benefits, there is a domestic partnership declaration form provided by the Office of Human Resources. This process is not new and was established in 2005, when a proposal was passed granting UGACards to domestic partners. A UGACard allows use of university facilities like Legion Pool and the Ramsey Student Center. The cards also acts as a parking permit and a method of access to athletic events. Options for legal proof include an adop-
tion agreement, joint deed or mortgage, joint bank account, joint credit card account and partner as beneficiary in will. Residence or financial interdependence must have been established for at least three months, and have the intention to live together indefinitely. “You have to provide verification, to show that you’re more than just roommates — that it is a long term relationship with two nonrelated people that live together,” Frick said. Soft benefits are approved, but, according to President Adams, to join the 60 percent of UGA’s peer universities, full-health benefits “will, unfortunately, require further study.” Out of U.S. News and World Report’s Top 50 Universities, 78 percent offer full domestic

partner benefits. Closer to home, the University of Florida has relied on the University of Florida Foundation to fund its full-health benefits for domestic partners since 2006. Under current Florida law, same-sex marriages, civil unions and domestic partnerships are not recognized. The same holds for Georgia. In Georgia, state money is prohibited from being used to pay for benefits of nonrecognized partners. The funds from the University of Florida Foundation are through contracts, grants and discretionary funds, not paid for by the state. Last September, GLOBES — the campus organization for LGBT faculty and staff — and the Human Resources Committee of the University Council proposed a similar method for locally funding fullhealth coverage through the University of Georgia Foundation. The proposal, mirroring the University of Florida, would pay for benefits with discretionary funds - not state funds, tuition, or student fees. Frick clarified that any non—married couple, same—sex or opposite sex, is included in a domestic partnership. “One thing important to note — this designation of domestic partner is gender neutral. It is not exclusive to same—sex couples,” Frick said. According to research done for this proposal, it is estimated .5 to 1 percent of benefit-eligible employees would enroll in fullhealth coverage at UGA. There are 10,000 benefit-eligible employees. The predicted cost to the University is $450 a month per participant, $5400 a year per participant. If .5 percent participate at UGA, that is 50 estimated participants, totaling $270,000 annual cost for the program. Approval from The Board of Regents is not required for a proposal not using state funds in Georgia. They do not oppose a separate health benefit program for domestic partners funded privately. Part of the mission of the University of Georgia Foundation is to provide support for the teaching, research, public service and outreach programs. Unopposed by the Board of Regents, Frick hopes UGA can develop a full-coverage plan through the Foundation’s private funds for the sake of reputation.

Freshman decathlete quickly took to new training, new country BY ALEC SHIRKEY @AShirkey The first time Maicel Uibo set foot on campus was not during an official recruiting visit. It was not for a football game or an Athens vacation. The freshman decathlete and Polva, Estonia native’s first glimpses of the University of Georgia and even the United States came when he arrived in August, at a school more than 4,800 miles away from home. “Different country, different culture, different language,” Uibo said. “I’m pretty OK with it. I already lived three years away from home. The high school I went [to] in the capital of Estonia, that was a three-hour drive away from my hometown. It’s not that big of a difference, but now it’s just a different country.” In a time when collegiate track and field draws athletes from all over the world, Uibo’s journey from northern Europe to the southern United States may not seem so out of the ordinary. But his recruiting process turned out to be anything but conventional. Uibo committed to Georgia without any face-to-face contact with the coaches or

schools in question, almost unheard of in sports such as football or basketball. It was an enormous leap of faith that began paying immediate dividends. “I started emailing all the coaches. I picked most of the southern states, just Googled the universities and emailed the coaches. [Multi-events] coach Petros [Kyprianou] was the second one who responded to me, and that’s how it went,” Uibo said. “I was there, he was here. I didn’t come here, he didn’t come to Estonia.” But don’t confuse Uibo’s methods for lack of familiarity with American universities. His decision to become a Bulldog was a calculated move, and one that involved thorough research of past performances and athletic development. Georgia’s ability to lure great track and field athletes became, in turn, what drew Uibo to Athens. “It’s funny, I asked him ‘Why us? Why Georgia?’ He’s a pretty smart guy. He said he went back and checked results from the NCAAs,” Kyprianou said. “One of the things he had in mind was to have good teammates to train with, better than him.” But the kind of numbers Uibo actually put up on the track far outweighed anybody’s reasonable expectations of the young multi-event athlete. In just his first collegiate heptathlon, Uibo’s score of 5,755 points at the Razorback Invite put him at No. 2 in the Georgia record books. He finished runner-up in the heptathlon at the Southeastern Conference Championships with a mark of 5,693 points. And he was named First Team All-America after a fourth-place finish at the NCAA Indoor Championships. But not even those impressive marks prepared coaches and teammates for what Uibo did at the Spec Towns Track on April 12. Competing in his first collegiate decathlon, Uibo put up a then 2013 world-leading mark of 8,223 points. It was the 11th-best score in NCAA history, and it broke Georgia’s 11 year-old decathlon record by 296 points. “Nobody [expected it]. And if Petros told you he did, he’s not being honest. Nobody expected that one. Maicel didn’t expect that one,” head coach Wayne Norton said. “It was early in the year, and the training he was doing was really geared towards this time of the year. So that was a big surprise.” Kyprianou was just as surprised by how quickly his star decathlete had improved through not even one full year with the Bulldogs. His new training regimen and the improved resources at his disposal, he says, played a part in Uibo’s rapid ascent to elite status in the collegiate track world. “To be honest with you, I didn’t expect that big of a score this early, but I knew things were falling into place,” Kyprianou said. “He comes off having the right facilities, the right medical support. Structured training that is based on combining different events that complement each other and helping each event to gain more points." Uibo’s early success also comes as a surprise when considering the fact that he came out of high school as an unheralded athlete, which can be blamed in part on the climate of his home country. “He was really under the radar. He hadn’t had any great marks or anything, but myself being from Europe I know that northern Europeans don’t get the greatest weather. So some of his marks were really impressive given the weather conditions he
Uibo seeks to capture a national decathlon title at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. STAFF/David Bristow had to perform [under],” Kyprianou said. “And I got kind of lucky.” And, of course, competing under clear skies in 70-degree weather naturally makes running, jumping and pole vaulting much easier. “Weather back home is pretty bad. Most of the decathlons I did back home it was raining both days. Hail, wind and pole vault. That’s pretty rough, so I don’t really think about [weather] here,” Uibo said. “It’s a lot warmer here, which is better. Better chances to get treatment, massages." As incredible as Uibo’s freshman year has been, the final chapter remains to be written, with the NCAA Outdoor Championships set to begin on Wednesday in Eugene, Ore. Faced with potentially the most competitive men’s decathlete field in NCAA history, Uibo remains hopeful that he can live up to an already extraordinary season. “This one freshman from Germany, he has the national-leading mark right now. He’s good, and there’s at least six guys I think that can score over 8000 points. It’s going to be exciting to see what happens,” Uibo said.

Another final four trip has UGA’s men’s tennis primed for future success BY ALEC SHIRKEY @AShirkey The Bulldogs got a tough taste of all that is required to win a national title this season. But even though there was no national championship trophy to bring home, the Georgia men’s tennis team – a young and inexperienced group that had seen its top singles player quit just three days before the tournament began – surprised many by simply making it to the Final Four. “After KU [Singh] left I got a good sense of people [thinking] ‘it’s going to be tough from here on out.’ They were tough matches, but I think we exceeded other people’s expectations,” sophomore Nathan Pasha said. “Winning the SEC Tournament and getting to the semis is always a good season. But Georgia is a great tennis program. Our standards are super high. We’re always trying to win the tournament, and if you don’t you’re always disappointed with yourself.” Relying heavily on a core group of talented underclassmen, the Bulldogs (26-5) would finish ranked No. 3 in the final ITA polls after falling 4-1 to the eventual champion Virginia Cavaliers in the national semifinals. It was the team’s sixth Final Four appearance in the last eight seasons. “At the end of the season, it’s kind of bittersweet. It was nice that we got to the semis, but we had a chance to get to the final. We were up in other third sets. We were in a position to win,” Pasha said. Georgia had taken three matches into third sets before Virginia clinched the overall victory. It was an instance in which the Bulldogs really flashed their collective potential against a challenging opponent. “It was anybody’s match, and those are the kind of matches that really provide a sense of what it takes to win a national championship. I think our players really gained a phenomenal amount of experience and are much better off for it,” head coach Manuel Diaz said. Perhaps the most impressive performance for Georgia throughout the national tournament was that of freshman Ben Wagland. Playing on courts two and three for most of the season, he was unexpectedly thrust into the leading role and, like his team, exceeded expectations, playing to a 3-0 tournament record at number one singles. Wagland also earned Georgia’s only victory over Virginia with an
astounding 7-5, 6-3 match win over Jarmere Jenkins, the nation’s thirdranked singles player. For Diaz, the match proved that Wagland is more than capable of carrying a heavy load for the team in years to come. “[Wagland] had been coming along and certainly been making a case for himself as one of the elite players in the country. I think he certainly proved it that particular day,” Diaz said. “I think he gains a perspective of what it’s really going to take to go through WAGLAND a field like the NCAA Championships in singles. We’re going to have to work really hard with him and get him a little bit stronger, heavier, thicker. His body has matured a great deal this year, and is going to continue to do so next year. I think this is a great taste for him of great things to come.” But while the team has gained plenty of valuable experience on the court this season, the Bulldogs have also developed stronger bonds off the court after dealing with the adversity Singh’s withdrawal created. If there was a sense of betrayal stemming from that incident, the group rallied and quickly moved forward. “We’ve gotten a lot closer,” Pasha said. “We had to come together as a complete team to beat Oklahoma and Pepperdine, and to be in that position to beat UVA. We had to talk about our identity as a team. We trusted each other more because after KU left we all had to step up.” For a team that pushed all the way to the semifinals and returns every single player from that starting group, Georgia’s future prospects naturally appear quite promising on paper. Three freshmen in Wagland, Austin Smith and Marco Nunez look to keep their prominent roles with the team, and Pasha returns as a key contributor. “The possibility that we have an experienced but still young team, the prospects are really bright,” Diaz said. “I think these guys realize they don’t need to settle for anything less than being the very best in the country. Hopefully we learned a great deal along the way this year.”

Flash of brilliance, Georgia hires former Kent State baseball coach BY LUKE DIXON @LukeCODixon It’s a new era for Georgia baseball. On Wednesday afternoon, the University of Georgia introduced new head baseball coach Scott Stricklin. “Coming to the University of Georgia is a dream come true and to get to coach in the (Southeastern Conference), which is the best baseball conference in the country,” Stricklin said. Stricklin, former head coach and alumnus of Kent State, had led the Golden Flashes baseball squad to five NCAA tournament appearances plus a College World Series berth in 2012 In the hiring process, McGarity said Stricklin’s name was one that kept coming up as they narrowed down their choices. “As we navigated through potential candidates for this position, Scott’s name was consistently referred to as ‘someone that must be on your list,” McGarity said. After his hiring was finalized, Stricklin said an unlikely source reached out to him. It was the man he will be replacing, former head coach David Perno. “It was a very difficult situation that [Perno] has gone through and I understand that,” Stricklin said. “He called me, he reached out to me and wanted to let me know that he is a Georgia Bulldog for life and that he supports this program and that he
always be high while he’s at the helm and that the goal is simple: get to the College World Series. “The message to our players is going to be very simple: get to Omaha,” Stricklin said. “We have tremendous talent in this state and we’re going to do everything we can to develop that talent to make our players into the best possible players, but also the best possible people that they can be.” As far as experience in the ultracompetitive Southeastern Conference is concerned, Stricklin has that too. He was the assistant and pitching coach at Vanderbilt from 2000-01, a current conference power competing in the NCAA Super Regional next week. Stricklin said that two-years of experience he gained helped his overall coaching style. “For me, personally, [coaching in the SEC] helped me grow as a coach to learn on the job, to see how it’s done in the best baseball conference in the country and see all of these coaches and the way that they do they things,” Stricklin said. Stricklin’s other previous coaching stints in the south came on opposite sides of his two years at Vanderbilt, at Georgia’s instate rival, Georgia Tech. He was volunteer coach from 1998-1999, and then assistant coach and recruiting coordinator from 20022004.

That meant a lot to me personally.” Stricklin also outlined his multifaceted plan as Georgia baseball’s new head man. He vowed to recruit the state of Georgia “as hard as you can recruit it,” and said that he already started off on that plan following his arrival to campus on Monday. “I had one of the most productive days we’ve ever had yesterday going around the state of Georgia,” Stricklin
said. Stricklin added that he had spoken to the entire 2013 recruiting class either in person or over the phone. “I know that they’re excited to be here, but the one thing that we’ve stressed to them is that we’re going to play very hard. Our effort level is going to be off the charts. When you combine that with some talent, and we have some talent here, I think great things can happen.” Stricklin said expectations will

Even his successor Stricklin emphasized the enormous amount of respect he holds for Perno and his legacy with Georgia baseball. “I had a great conversation with former head coach David Perno. I just want to say that I don’t know if I’ve ever had a conversation when I hung up and was so touched by how gracious he was,” Stricklin said. “He called me, he reached out to me and
wanted to let me know that he is a Georgia Bulldog for life, and that he supports this program, and that he supports us. And that meant a lot to me personally.” In addition to his accomplishments as a player, Perno also built up an impressive resume during his early years as head coach. He was named 2004 Coach of the Year by Baseball America after guiding the team to a first-place finish in the SEC.

Georgia also made three College World Series appearances under his guidance, with the team finishing runner-up to Fresno State in 2008. His six postseason appearances are the most by any baseball coach in school history. With a track record like that, the decision to let Perno to resign might have been tougher for Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity to make, were it not for the team’s off-the-field issues this year. Outfielder Kyle Carter and first baseman J.T. Phillips – both freshmen out of Columbus, Ga. – found themselves off the team after running into trouble with Athens-Clarke County law enforcement. Phillips was kicked off following a DUI offense, while Carter transferred out of the program after being arrested twice for underage possession and a weapons charge in the fall. “Huge distraction. We’ve never had that issue. Offseason, I restructured some duties on our staff and it backfired on me,” Perno said of the arrests. It is clear that these incidents likely factored into McGarity’s final decision, as he noted the necessity of recruiting both talented players and the right players for an athletic program. “You have to do your homework,” McGarity said. “You have to check the background of these young people and do the best job you possibly can to find out what they’re all about, because it doesn’t take many people to really damage the chemistry on your team.” With a new skipper manning the clubhouse and a host of promising players returning for next season, there is hope that those lateseason wins over Georgia Tech and Florida truly could be a sign of things to come for Georgia baseball. “This is the best we’ve been playing,” second baseman Nelson Ward said. “We had five sophomores starting and two freshmen starting. A ton of underclassmen. We’re going to carry this into the next year for sure.” Stricklin moves forward with an impressive resume under his belt, and hopes to turn Georgia into a national powerhouse in the SEC. “The message to our players is going to be very simple: get to Omaha,”Stricklin said.

Track Dogs seeking excellence at NCAAs BY: JUSTIN HUBBARD @JHubb93 After a strong showing at the NCAA East Regionals, the Georgia track and field team will send 18 athletes to the men and women's Outdoor National Championships this week. Two of those traveling are true freshman Chanice Porter and sophomore Tynia Gaither, both of whom will be competing in their first national championship. Porter, a jumper for the Bulldogs, is coming off an impressive first season at Georgia. She won five meets, including a streak of three in a row beginning at the Auburn Invite. Porter was able to accomplish this all while battling a bothersome ankle injury, and she seemed hopeful she could perform decently in the competitions. “Heading into nationals with an ankle injury is gonna set me back a bit because I’m injured,” Porter said. “There’s tons of girls up there jumping at their best, so it’s gonna put me back. So, hopefully, I’ll just go up there and do my best. I’ll be going into nationals looking to compete my best. That’s all that matters. Hopefully I can pull off some big jumps. Hopefully that would push me into the All-American (rank), and that would be good for me.” During regional competition on May 25, Tynia Gaither, sprinter and relay racer, barely missed the cut for nationals. She was only behind by one-one hundredth of a second in the 100 meter. However, later in the evening, she punched her ticket to nationals during the 200 meter race. Gaither was clear she wanted to perform to the best of her ability. “Well me, personally, first of all I’m just expecting to make it into the finals,” Gaither said. “That’s the biggest thing I’m worried about right now. And I know once I’m able to do that, everything will just fall into place. My PR [personal record] right now is 23.17, and I’m looking to beat that.” Porter and Gaither both echoed that their focus is clear, and there is no nervousness going into their first national championships. “I’m used to these big competitions,” Porter said. “It’s just like competing on a normal basis. It’s just some regular stuff for me.” “Right now I’m just looking to get the job done,” Gaither said. “I think the thing with me, when it comes to big competitions, is that I psyche myself up to the point where I don’t get nervous. I just think of a big com-
petition as just another small meet.” While this is sure to be an exciting trip for the Bulldogs, there were a few talented competitors who didn’t make the cut for nationals, including sophomore distance runner Carly Hamilton. This season, Hamilton won multiple events, and had a hand in breaking and setting new Georgia track records, including setting the new school record on the mile run with a time of 4:36.06 at the Husky Classic. She entered nationals qualifying with the sixth-fastest mile time of 4:12.15. But at regionals, Hamilton finished GAITHER ninth in her heat and 14th overall, not a high enough finish to qualify for nationals. “We had a couple of real painful things happen,” head coach Wayne Norton said. “One that really hurt was Hamilton. Those things hurt, but for us, for the group, we kind of have to move on. But it’s really hard for Carly because that’s it. It’s unforgiving. If you don’t make it, you’re done. She had a spectacular season, not just a good one - spectacular. That shows you that a spectacular, great, marvelous season doesn’t mean anything for the nationals if you can’t get through.” It may be disappointing that Hamilton and other Bulldogs aren’t able to compete in the national championship, but Porter and Gaither both seem upbeat and confident that the team can still perform well as a whole. “I know that we have a good team going into nationals,” Porter said. “I’m looking forward for my team to finish in the top five at nationals.” “As a team, I’m just expecting everyone to make it into the finals,” Gaither said. “If we all make it into the finals, we’ll all be able to score. I think that’s the biggest thing that we’re looking for right now.” The NCAA Outdoor Championships will begin on Wednesday in Eugene, Ore., with competition running each day through Saturday. “Nationals is always what everybody’s pointing to,” Norton said. “Everybody’s geared up for that. We’re in good shape because all of our people who are ranked high going in are kind of on an upswing, so that’s a good thing.”

Lay out your skinny jeans and clean off your thick-rimmed glasses, Athenians — Athfest has officially begun. The fifteenth incarnation of the annual Athens music and arts festival kicked off on June 1st at the release party for 2013’s AthFest Sampler CD, hosted by The World Famous. While the festival proper won’t begin until June 19th, Saturday’s concert showed off the breadth and depth of talent that appear on the festival’s official compilation. Armed with folksy charm, smooth vocals and a mix-andmatch band that changed membership with every song, Brandon Taj Hanick led King of Prussia through a set filled with broken hearts and country rhythms. King of Prussia was the most energetic and diverse act of the night. While collaborator Mike Mills (R.E.M) was unable to appear for the show, the Prussians still made an impact with their obvious talent, and the sheer joy they took in performing. The same could not be said for the night’s second act. Clad in jorts, cutoff tees and “ironic” Hawaiian shirts, k i d s’ overly-serious, reverb-heavy performance was a painfully harsh about-face from the pleasantly folksy rhythms of the previous act. The band seemed to have been conceived less as a musical act and more as an excuse for frontman K. Jared Collins to gyrate around in a sleeveless T-shirt, and the resulting cacophony was off-putting and alienating to much of the audience. Even the band seemed less than happy to be there, as they spent half the performance facing determinedly away from an audience that presumably came to see them play. Things turned back around with the final act of the evening. Album openers, The Darnell Boys, got the audience back on their feet and back into the show with its toe-tapping Southern blues. A full-sized double bass beat got the room nodding their heads to its undeniable rhythm as frontman Austin Darnell showed off his harmonica skills between growled-out country vocals.

Athens natives The Darnell Boys know the blues. STAFF/Taylor Sutton The Boys showed off both undeniable musical talent and a real talent for energizing a room, and despite pimping its upcoming album release a little too hard, the band closed out the evening with sizzling country rock that left the crowd excited to catch their next performance. While festival-goers have much to anticipate, King of Prussia’s Hanick insisted that AthFest is an experience for the performers, as well. “Playing the Athfest CD release party on Saturday reminded me of how many brilliant artists have come from Athens over the years,” Hanick said. “It’s my first year living back in the South, so I’m pleased to be part of it and look forward to checking out all of the awesome bands this year.” Sampler Review The Athfest 2013 sampler CD features 16 of Athens’ best and brightest musical acts, both rising stars and old favorites with something new to bring to the table, coming together to create the perfect appetizer for audiences' ears before the main event. The album kicks off with the toe-tapping rhythms of The Darnell Boys, a folk band whose AthFest track follows in the fin-
est tradition of upbeat, sad-sack blues rock. These newly-minted Southern boys are the standardbearers for new folk work in a classic genre. Other new bands of note include Like Totally!, whose softspoken, full-hearted “Sail Baby Sail” feels like a quiet walk through a darkened wood. The Warm Fuzzies’ upbeat, punk rock “Yoo-hoo,” is a another standout track, as well as hometown girl Lera Lynn’s heartfelt, plaintive ballad “Standing on the Moon.” The sampler also features appearances by plenty of Athens’ old favorites. Drive-By Truckers’ Patterson Hood makes his third contribution to the AthFest soundtrack with the introspective piano ballad “Come Back Little Star,” and former Truckers bassist Shonna Tucker joins with her newlyminted band Eye Candy to produce the bizarre yet memorable “Family Dinner,” which kicks off with a truly inexplicable rap-rock opener before settling into a jazzy, peppy beat sure to get audiences up on their feet. The sampler also sees the return of seven-year absent crystal-pop perfectionist group King of Prussia, whose delicate, heartbreakingly tender “I’ll Dance” showcases a fantastic, multifaceted group of gifted instrumentalists, including the incomparable Mike Mills of R.E.M on keys. The standout track of the album, however, is The Hobohemians’ “Rotgut Blues.” A deep-throated swinger that comes out of nowhere but demands attention with its confident, laid-back vibe, "Rotgut Blues" features the deliciously smoky voice of Susan Staley and 1920’s-inspired sax and keyboard solos. The throwback ballad shows The Hobohemians are the band not to miss at this year’s festival. The emerging artists of Athens may have a long way to go if they’re ever going to reach the heights of our town’s pantheon of classics, but the AthFest 2013 sampler shows off plenty of artists with the talent and drive to do just that.

Five ways to survive music festival season By Emily Erdelyan @emerdelyan All music festivals in America have their own individual appeal. Whether it is the rolling hills of Wakarusa, the sunrise sets of Bonnaroo, or the extravagant light displays inside “Sherwood Forest” at Electric Forest, every festival offers an incredibly unique experience. There are also several classic pitfalls that all music festivals share. Preparation for weather and other obstacles is 100 percent necessary to have a good time. The five following survival tips should help you make the best out of any festival experience: H2O Even if you think you have packed enough water, pack more. Water is almost impossible to come by (for free) in the middle of nowhere. Dancing, drinking and standing up all day are all common activities during music festivals, and
the difference between sleeping in a tent versus a sauna. Dry ice and a large cooler Dry ice may sound risky, but it will keep both your ice and food supply from going bad if used properly. Place dry ice at the bottom of a large, insulated cooler and surround it with regular ice. Next place frozen water jugs beside the regular ice to serve as water sources later when they melt. These steps should keep your food cold and your water ample.
Look to avoid making these classic festival mistakes at AthFest 2013. STAFF/Erin O. Smith they all result in dehydration.

Tents and Canopies
While driving across the country for a festival, distance may seem like the most troublesome factor of your experience, but it’s actualy weather. Remind yourself that rain, thunderstorms and ungodly heat are all very possible occurrences in the often rural settings of festivals. There is nothing more refreshing than a fresh pair of socks after
Like dressing appropriately, shelter and rest spots will be a decision you’re thankful for by the end of any festival that involves camping. Make sure to bring a tent that’s stable and weather-resistant enough so that you don’t end up having to sleep in your car.

JD McPherson promises ‘art school’ spin on classic rock’n’roll By Chelsey Abercrombie @comma_freak JD McPherson had to lose his job to find his passion. “For a very, very long time, there was no [music] business" McPherson said. “I finally made this record, ‘Signs and Signifiers,’ as a project. I knew there was an audience for that, and I was writing specifically for that audience — early rock’n’roll stuff.” It would appear that the Oklahoma native, who will perform at the 40 Watt on June 12, hit his mark. According to Patrick Doyle of Rolling Stone, McPherson’s first album “conjures the sound of Fifties-style rock & roll so lovingly that you can practically see Sam Phillips grinning from the control room while McPherson howls away in the studio.” Released in 2010 by roots music label Hi-Style Records, McPherson had to record his debut while juggling responsibilities as a middle school art teacher. All of that changed, however, when the singer-songwriter turned what most would see as a dead-end into an opportunity. “When I lost my job I had three months of paid summer vacation to wait out, so I was like we have this record, let’s hit the road, try and make some extra money while I looked for another job,” McPherson said. “But then I had to stop and ask if it could actually happen, would it work out?”
In 2012, “Signs and Signifiers,” was re-released by major label Rounder Records. It debuted at No. 47 on the Billboard Rock Albums chart, as well as No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart. In November 2012, Rolling Stone called McPherson “an artist to watch,” awarding “Signs and Signifiers” 3.5 stars out of 5. McPherson credits much of his musical inspiration to his love of classic rock’n’roll. “I would say that our starting point is rhythm and blues and rock’n’roll, and kind of the early sounds of that, with an injection of, like, art school,” McPherson said. “It’s just trying to take everything we love about those rhythms and sounds.” McPherson’s list of influences includes Little Richard and Led Zeppelin, as well as “the alternative music scene that was happening in the nineties.” When he comes to the 40 Watt, McPherson will also bring a veteran stage presence, as he has toured multiple clubs and festivals since even before the release “Signs and Signifiers.” McPherson is enough of a veteran to know that sometimes a performance doesn’t always go the way it’s meant to. “We were playing a show in Petaluma, California. Our piano player, his mother came to see us and she brought buckets and buckets of this amazing food, all this stuff, and I just went way too

‘Mud’ adventures through lies, truth and tragedy in the south By Colby Newton The Red & Black
JD McPherson's lay-off became an opportunity. Courtesy JD McPherson far,” McPherson said. But even Rock stars have their limits. “I ate probably three times more than I should have, and I felt that I had one of the worst shows I ever had. I completely blew it, and then somebody came back and said Tom Waits was at the show, and he stayed all the way through the encore. I just sunk below the earth. I had the worst show of my life in front of Tom Waits.” In addition to his innovative take on classic rock, McPherson may bring even more goodness to the audience at the 40 Watt. “I would say show up early, and maybe Ray’s mom will show up with some chicken,” he said.

Jeff Nichols’ “Mud” is about liars. The titular Mud — a stupefied Matthew McConaughey — is a grown-up Tom Sawyer, living on an island and conning his young friends into running his errands. Mud’s existence is built around a story he’s told himself, of the girl who loves him, and whose love justifies the life he’s led. When Mud tells this story to the film’s actual lead, 14-year-old Ellis (“The Tree of Life”’s Tye Sheridan in a grounded, heartfelt performance) it kicks the main plot into gear, setting off a chain of events that leads into unforeseeable — but inevitable — tragedy. While Mud’s plotline is a pulp thriller in the best way, Ellis’ story feels smaller and more honest. Some of the best moments come from Ellis’ interactions with his parents, who feel both larger than life and completely believable. At times, “Mud” can feel like a young adult
novel, while at others it comes off as a particularly Southern version of those ’90s “socially conscious” teen fictions. Where the film manages to transcend is in its construction. Nichols shot the film in his home state of Arkansas, and his obvious love for the area comes through in every frame. “Mud” isn’t perfect; the backwoods thriller and coming-of-age tale that make up the film’s dual tones sometimes clash rather than harmonize. The film also has a bit of a problem with its female characters, often reducing them to clichéd “faithless women,” while many of the male characters are similarly flawed. “Mud”’s well-realized Arkansas woodlands and thematic depth make the film well worth a look despite these flaws, and Nichols’ gliding, dreamlike camera work make the whole film feel like some Southern parable about truth, liars, and honor.

GMOA lets patrons vote on works to keep, sell
PAINTGS FOR PUBLIC WHAT: Public voting to determine which of Bernard Smol's paintings will stay in the Georgia Museum of Art
By Chelsey Abercrombie @comma_freak If you thought voting was just for singing competitions, think again. From May 25 to July 7, the Georgia Museum of Art is allowing patrons to vote on which of five paintings by French artist Bernard Smol to keep at the museum, and which to sell at public auction. The whole process is called “deaccessioning,” and while it may sound painful, it’s actually a process all museums must go through. “Deaccessioning is necessary because you can’t just keep everything,” said Hillary Brown, director of communications for the GMOA. Besides "La Robe de la Mariée," none of the works in the collection have been displayed anywhere other than GMOA in 1959. Patrons can vote on which painting to keep with red or green stickers placed next to the works. Green indicates staying power, while red shows the opposite. “We wanted people to be able to voice both opinions,” Brown said. The public can also voice their opinions anonymously in a comment book in the gallery. “'Le Prophéte Job' must be kept,” one commenter wrote. “'Le Prophéte' stands out as less vibrant, otherworldly, contemplative.” Some comments were more direct than others. “Sell the paintings and buy a Francis Bacon print,” another wrote. Lynn Boland, GMOA’s Pierre Daura curator of European art, has the final say in which painting will be retained at the museum, and he has already declared his allegiance in a memorandum

Patrons can choose which painting to keep at the museum via red or green stickers. STAFF/Caitlin LeMoine about the deaccessioning. “'La Robe de la Mariée' was a gift of the artist as well as the personal favourite of the museum’s founder, Alfred H. Holbrook,
according to a March 25, 1959 letter from Holbrook to Smol,” Boland wrote. The public has chosen a different frontrunner. “People have really
been pointing out in the comment book that they think [Le Prophéte Job] is different,” Brown said. Brown is herself perhaps more aligned with the Francis Bacon fanatic. “I think 'La Robe de la Mariée' is the least bad,” she said. While the quasi-art election is a relatively novel form of choosing which work remains at GMOA, Brown is confident in Boland’s decision — whether he chooses to go with the public’s choice or not. “We’re a republic, not a democracy," Brown said. “Art is subjective. That’s why we want to get feedback.”

Dawgs Abroad: ‘Hangout’ this summer festival season By Emily Erdelyan @Emerdelyan Editor’s Note: Dawgs Abroad is a new series about University of Georgia students travelling during the summer and the culture, shenanigans and adventures they experience outside of Athens. Set on the beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama, Hangout Fest (May 17-19) is a massive beach party set to the tunes of Kings of Leon, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis among others. After four days filled with an eclectic mix of artists, it’s a challenge to choose the best moments of my experience, but they were all performances: Grizzly Bear I was familiar with a number of Grizzly Bear’s songs, but I had no idea they would leave me wanting more.
