Student forgets age, heads to hospital National Emergency Medical Services transported an 18-yearold University student to Athens Regional Medical Center after he was unable to provide his correct age to University Police Saturday at 1:30 am, according to a University Police report. An officer found the student â&#x20AC;&#x153;leaning against a wall directly outside of the old Visual Arts building,â&#x20AC;? according to the report. The officer had reportedly noticed a group of people helping him walk down Jackson Street a while earlier and stopped to make sure he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in need of medical attention. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Cailin Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien

Top defensive tackle recruit looks to UGA Georgia is closing in on the possibility of adding another defensive lineman to the 2013 recruiting class. Defensive tackle Kelsey Griffin narrowed his college options to Georgia and South Carolina on Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got it down to South Carolina and Georgia, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as far as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten,â&#x20AC;? Griffin told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Griffin recently eliminated Tennessee from his top choices. Griffin, a 6-foot-2, 290-pound defensive linemen, would be the fifth defensive line commitment in the 2013 class. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ben Wolk

At center, Andrews enjoys the chance to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;prove them wrongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; BY RYAN BLACK The Red & Black not.

Sophomore Carmina Escalante was staring at the hardest text message of her life. Escalante, 19, had to explain to her traditional Filipino parents that she wanted to get married to a man she had been dating for less than a year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know this is really bad, but I told them over text. I messed up. I told them, and they were not happy,â&#x20AC;? Carmina Escalante, now Taylor, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a long text â&#x20AC;&#x201D; long conversation over text â&#x20AC;&#x201D; because I was just so scared. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure how to break it to them because I knew it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be something that they wanted for me.â&#x20AC;? Her 20-year-old boyfriend and now husband Zebulon Taylor was waiting beside her in support. But getting married had been the last thought on both of their minds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Neither of us is really marriagefocused,â&#x20AC;? Carmina said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would have, perhaps, cohabitated for the rest of our lives if we ended up together.â&#x20AC;? Zebulon agreed, saying that marriage was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;foreign ideaâ&#x20AC;? to him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had never ever ever considered this -- ever. I had not even toyed with the notion of marriage in general. It was really a foreign idea to me completely,â&#x20AC;? Zebulon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But she and I fell into a routine very quickly, not stagnating, but just really meshed and fit well.â&#x20AC;? And now months later, the two have joined one of collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lesser known minorities â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the betrothed. Their wedding didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t arise from a romantic notion or a whirlwind pregnancy. Instead, it came from the serendipitous juncture of their mutual goal to one See MARRIED, Page 5

WHAT NOT TO MISS JAMES GREGORY â&#x20AC;&#x153;THE FUNNIEST MAN IN AMERICAâ&#x20AC;?

Where: The Melting Point When: 7:30 p.m. Thursday Price: $20-$100 Details: A veteran comedian, James Gregory has a down-home feel to his storytelling.

David Andrews knows what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not especially large for an offensive lineman, at 6-foot-2 and 290 pounds. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to dominate the defenders heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going up against, whether it is in practice or when games begin next month. And yes, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d still like to add some pounds to his frame. But he has to play to his strengths, and being an annoyance to his opponent is the best way he knows how. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to get in their grill and play low on them, just be like a little gnat out there on them,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes I feel like a little gnat going up against John [Jenkins] and Kwame [Geathers], but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a physical game and I love it.â&#x20AC;? His lack of ideal height and weight is why some thought Andrews would never get to this point. But the sophomore has always had his critics. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something he has gotten used to â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and something he relishes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m out to prove something every day. There were people that always doubted me, and I kind of like that,â&#x20AC;? Andrews said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like people telling me Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to be able to do something, because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to go and prove them wrong.â&#x20AC;? Perhaps it should come as no surprise that Andrews resembles and looks up to the man he is replacing as Georgiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starting center. Ben Jones didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t arrive at Georgia with prototypical height and weight either. Jones came to Georgia standing

6-foot-3 and weighing 300 pounds. He left four years later 13 pounds heavier. What Jones did have was a nasty streak and a great football mind, which helped him on his way to 49 starts as a Bulldog, third-most in Georgia history for an offensive lineman. Quarterback Aaron Murray also gave Andrewsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; play high marks, an important development because Murray had previously only received snaps from Jones while at Georgia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done a great job,â&#x20AC;? Murray said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not quiet, timid or nervous. He knows what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing.â&#x20AC;?

Student Q&A: Devon Ross Baker, graduate student The Red & Black sat down with international student Devon Ross Baker, a finance and international business major from South Africa who is a first-year graduate student, to talk about his time at the University.

makes you stand out, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit overwhelming, but it also gave me a chance to meet so many cool people in such a short period of time. Some of my best friends today are the ones I met in those first couple of weeks. I would say the biggest thing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned since I got here is being open to meeting different types of people.

Reason for attending the University: I suppose itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a combination between a good school, very nice people and great weather. Favorite aspect of America: Everyone is so happy about being a bulldog and crazy about being an American, and they are so into it. There is no apathy here. Everyone really cares. Challenges along the way: Walking into a school of 35,000 people is pretty crazy, especially when everyone knows each other from high school. Being the one with the accent

Lessons learned: I would say for other international kids coming to the University, make an effort to get out of your comfort zone and get to know real American people and do real American things with them. It makes a huge difference. Being involved in spring break and the Fourth of July really completed the American experience for me. - Heidi Gholamhosseini

Facebook causes fear of missing out

Pharmacy welcomes Class of 2016

Scanning the newsfeed on Facebook before class may do more harm than some realize. A recent social trend has shown how users of social networking sites can sometimes feel depressed or selfconscious after coming across their digital friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fun and exciting posts. This feeling of inadequacy is referred to as the fear of missing out. Psychology department head Keith Campbell said Facebook envy is a basic social comparison problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People engage in social comparison often to feel good,â&#x20AC;? Campbell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They look to people worse off than them to feel better, or they can compare themselves to people better off and feel worse.â&#x20AC;? According to Campbell, social comparison

is not a new problem. Studies in the past have discovered that soap operas stimulate a similar comparison between viewersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; own lives and the lives of the characters, Campbell said. In that situation, viewers experienced positive reactions to the association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People watch soap operas and are glad their lives arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that screwed up,â&#x20AC;? he said. The difference comes from the increased exposure students have to the lives of their peers through social networking sites. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you bring things online, it makes everything much more accessible,â&#x20AC;? Campbell said. - Brittany Futch

The University College of Pharmacy welcomed 144 new students into the class of 2016 with its annual white coat ceremony on Aug. 11. At the event, all new students received white lab coats to mark the beginning of their pharmacy careers. College of Pharmacy Alumni Council president Amy Miller, a 1991 graduate and owner of Lula Pharmacy and Foothills Gift Shop, was the ceremonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s keynote speaker. Athens pharmacist Michelle Freeman, a 1988 graduate, represented Kroger Pharmacy as sponsor of the event. Of the class of 2016â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 144 members, 68.8 percent are female, 35.7 percent are minorities and 28.5 percent have a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree or higher.

CRIME NOTEBOOK Louis Vuitton purse stolen from sorority house kitchen A University studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purse was taken from the kitchen area of the Delta Delta Delta sorority house on Milledge Avenue Sunday at 10 p.m., according to an Athens-Clarke County Police report. According to the report, the property stolen included a Louis Vuitton purse, a Hobo wallet, $50, Ray Ban sunglasses, an iPhone 4 with an OtterBox case, $50 in gift cards, two debit cards, a Georgia driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license and the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s UGA ID. The total value was $1,725. Armed robbery on Baxter Street reported, suspect possibly armed An armed robbery in the area of Baxter Street and Baxter Drive was reported in an email by the AthensClarke County Police Department on Monday afternoon. The gunman robbed Little Caesars on Baxter Street at 3:30 p.m. and was last seen running toward South Milledge Avenue and Clark Central High School where students were getting out of school for the day, according to the Athens Banner-Herald. Police said no customers were present during the robbery. Barefoot man arrested after stumbling into road Police charged a man with underage drinking after finding him stumbling down the street barefoot Saturday at 5:14 a.m., according to an Athens-Clarke County Police report. While the officer watched, Colton Matthew McCormick, 19, reportedly stumbled into the road three or four more times. When the officer got McCormick to the patrol car, McCormick reportedly said his friends had left him downtown. On the way to Clarke County Jail, McCormick reportedly repeated several times that he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;drunk.â&#x20AC;? He could not be reached for comment. Man hides from officer behind car A University student was injured after a fight in front of the Georgia Theatre Sunday at about 2:20 a.m., according to an AthensClarke County Police report. The victim reportedly suffered a bloody lip, skinned elbow and bloody knees after he was punched in the mouth by Michael Durfee, 20. When Tallent saw officers reporting to the scene, he reportedly hid

behind a car. When an officer asked Tallent to come out from behind the car, the victim and two witnesses identified him and Durfee as the offenders, although he decided not to prosecute. Tallent then said the victim had hit a friend of his and Durfeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the mouth earlier in front of Flanaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bar & Grill. Durfee reportedly said the victim had â&#x20AC;&#x153;hit him for no reason at all and he just walked away.â&#x20AC;? Durfee and Campbell could not name this friend or produce a phone number for him. Officers smelled alcohol on Durfeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breath and identified him as 20 years old. He was charged with underage possession of alcohol as well as disorderly conduct. They were transported to Clarke County Jail. Neither could be reached for comment. Student charged with keeping a disorderly house A University student was charged with keeping and maintaining a disorderly house Sunday morning after multiple arrests were made at a house party, according to an Athens-Clarke County Police report. According to the report, an officer had been dispatched to the Warren Way area in reference to â&#x20AC;&#x153;lots of subjects out in the roadway.â&#x20AC;? There were seven arrests made on charges of underage possession of alcohol at the time. The officer determined where the party they had been attending was held. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lewdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; display at ACC police lands man in custody Athens-Clarke County Police officers took a gyrating man into custody after a â&#x20AC;&#x153;lewdâ&#x20AC;? sexual display directed at an officer Saturday at about 11:30 p.m., according to an ACC Police report. An officer sitting in the parking lot of Vine East Apartments reportedly looked up to see Laundejo Montez Gresham, 34, on the top balcony level. The man was clutching his crotch with one hand with a beer can in the other hand. He was reportedly moving his hips in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;slightly gyrating motionâ&#x20AC;? and tugging on his genitals while pointing at the patrol car. The officer put his spotlight on Gresham in a reported attempt to discourage his behavior, since there were several people in the area that could see what he was doing. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Staff reports

Looking for textbooks? Check this out BY CAILIN Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;BRIEN The Red & Black Each semester, students are confronted with a seemingly simple task: obtain the appropriate textbooks. However, as any experienced student knows, getting the correct text for the right price can be a bit more than students bargain for. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really overwhelmed,â&#x20AC;? said junior Hailey Olszewski about her first experience buying textbooks at the University. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was worried about finding the right books though.â&#x20AC;? Olszewski said her concern about finding the correct book, combined with her inexperience in buying textbooks, led her to pay much more for books than she would ever pay today. The Red & Black broke down the options for any overwhelmed first-time book buyers to help spot both convenience and reasonable deals.

UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA BOOKSTORE As an incoming freshman worried about finding the correct textbooks, the University Bookstore presented itself as a logical and convenient choice, student Hailey Olszewski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They would tell you what books you needed if you put in your class,â&#x20AC;? she said. In fact, convenience such as Olszewski experienced represents a major advantage of shopping at the University Bookstore, sales associate Darrell Robinson told The Red & Black. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have more up-to-date information about the classes and any changes that they need. And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have in stock the books that they would need for those classes,â&#x20AC;? he said. Despite the convenience, however, Olszewski did come to find her textbook purchase to be more expensive than she could have found elsewhere. But Robinson said the convenience and level of expertise in the University Bookstore cannot be beaten. The University Bookstore also offers rental textbooks that can be rented for a semester at about half the original retail price, textbook department manager Robert Newsome said. The University Bookstore is located in Tate Plaza.

BAXTER STREET BOOKSTORE The Baxter Street Bookstore is also a sister store of both the East Campus and Off Campus bookstores. The bookstore provides an advantage, however, in that it will often buy back books in good condition for up to 67 percent of the retail value â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the same competitive rate as the University Bookstore, assistant manager Bonnie Marcotte said. Marcotte also said the Baxter Street Bookstore tends to maintain better prices than the competition as well as a wide variety of used books. The store does not offer textbook rental. The Baxter Street Bookstore is located at 360 Baxter Street and offers â&#x20AC;&#x153;ample free parking,â&#x20AC;? Marcotte told The Red & Black.

ONLINE Despite the bevy of textbook store options around the University, Olszewski said she has chosen to shop online for her books since her freshman year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I found them cheaper online,â&#x20AC;? she said. Senior Robbie Nelke also found his textbooks less expensively online. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Never buy your books from the bookstore when places like Amazon.com and AbeBooks. com are cheaper,â&#x20AC;? he said. Amazon.com now offers Amazon Textbook Rental, a program which should allow students to save up to 70 percent a semester, according to an Amazon press release. Whether online, off campus or in Tate Plaza, students in Athens can rise above the textbook frenzy and handle themselves with cool and frugal heads.

While the Off Campus Bookstore may not be able to match the convenience of the University Bookstore, owner Charles Fuller said excellent customer service draws students to the store. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to provide excellent customer service and help the students find the correct book for the class that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking,â&#x20AC;? he said. Fuller also said Off Campus Bookstore offers a wider selection of used textbooks than can be found anywhere else in Athens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try our best to stock used textbooks for every class,â&#x20AC;? he said. The store also stocks rental textbooks, though Fuller said this arrangement may be less of a good deal than many students think. Students who rent books pay roughly 50 percent of the retail value of the book, Fuller said. However, the books cannot be sold by the student later on â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they must be returned at the end of the semester. A student who buys a used textbook may pay slightly more. But the student will likely be able to sell the book back for up to half of the new retail price of that book if it has been adopted for the next term. Consequently, the student loses less money than if they had rented the book. Off Campus Bookstore is located at 696 Baxter Street, next to Jimmy Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.

East Campus Bookstore is the sister store of the Off Campus Bookstore. Fuller, owner of both stores, told The Red & Black that the deals and the customer service are strikingly similar among both stores. But the East Campus location more conveniently caters to the needs of those living in dorms and apartments on that end of town. This means that the experience caters more to upperclassmen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Relax. No freshmen. No Problem,â&#x20AC;? the East Campus Bookstore website reads. The store is located at 2301 College Station Road.

Partying like a rock star â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an ugly, elected one

Jacob Martin

Guest columnist

I

f youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like the majority of Americans, recent scandals like the General Services Administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $800,000 Vegas jamboree (clown and mind reader included) and the Secret Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on-duty assignations have hardened your already-cool feelings toward government. And you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the half of it. I went to D.C. this summer as an outsider â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a starry-eyed intern and aspiring policy wonk too young to order beers at the libertarian happy hours. I have since returned, eyes opened to the real world of our governing elites. As unemployment hovers above 8 percent â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a conspicuous 2.5 percent higher than the administration promised back in 2009 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and unemployment for recent college graduates stands at a mind-boggling 53 percent, our governing elites are having a rip-roaring good time in Washington, D.C. If D.C. is Hollywood for the ugly, it is certainly evidenced in the excesses of its celebrities. Let it never be said that Washington politicos donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to party â&#x20AC;&#x201D; last year, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration found D.C. denizens have the highest levels of drug and alcohol abuse in the nation. And with thousands of college undergraduates and recent graduates swelling the ranks of life-long lushes in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premier government agencies and lobbying firms, the party has reached a crescendo worthy of Hunter Thompson-esque hyperbole. To pay for it all, the Congressional Budget Office predicts that tax revenue will â&#x20AC;&#x153;shoot upâ&#x20AC;? 30 percent by 2014, due mostly to the expiration of the Bush tax relief in 2013 and the onset of tax hikes hidden in President Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care bill. Washington types promise to invest this money to create jobs through stimulus projects. Given the track record of these projects ($9.8 million per â&#x20AC;&#x153;green-collarâ&#x20AC;? job created by the 2009 stimulus, for example), it might as well be a few more bucks for the beer fund. At base, this flippant use of taxpayer money is part and parcel of a Washington culture that glorifies excess. A few years back, a report found that 10 of the 15 wealthiest counties in America were within easy commute of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s epicenter of power. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s either a fantastic coincidence or a product of your tax dollars â&#x20AC;&#x201D; common sense points to the latter. Somewhere in Maryland or the Old Dominion, nestled far away from 8.2 percent unemployment and other Rust Belt woes, live the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s green energy lobbyists and G-15 bureaucrats, driving around in white Land Rovers like so many Western visitors on humanitarian aid missions. And when you think about it, maybe thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what they are, or are becoming â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a posturing elite fighting for the common good in the increasingly insulated environment of a banana republic. As the private sector sinks further into the morass of economic stagnation â&#x20AC;&#x201D; pace President Obama, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not doing fine â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the public sector will continue its boom. More spending, more interns, more limousines and pleasure boats and mind readers. All expenses paid for, by the rest of us. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Blake Seitz, The Red & Black Opinions Editor, is a junior from Dallas, TX majoring in political science and public administration & policy

I enjoy a good argument. It allows me to articulate my views, entertain the beliefs of others and occasionally even shape how people see the world. I find it fun. Concerning Chick-Fil-A, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve recently engaged in a number of verbal and electronic debates concerning same-sex marriage, free speech, government regulation of commerce and the legitimacy of boycott. Most of these discussions are fading, and people are moving on with their lives. Before we concede that all are entitled to their opinions, however, I want to share something that has become apparent to me. Specifically, I have realized that as part of the heterosexual majority â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and regardless of which â&#x20AC;&#x153;sideâ&#x20AC;? we take â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I am privileged to enjoy this debate and then go on with my life. For the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community, Chick-Fil-A banter will come and go, but secondclass citizenship will remain. LGBT persons have been, and are still today, subjected to discrimination. Same-sex marriage aside, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consider search: LGBT â&#x20AC;şâ&#x20AC;ş overt examples of discrimination against the LGBT population today. For instance, in 29 states, an LGBT employee may endure workplace discrimination related to their sexual orientation without legal protection. This includes termination. Twenty-nine states do not have laws prohibiting housing discrimination, which allows landlords to refuse to rent their properties to persons identifying as LGBT. There are 19 states where an LGBT individual can be verbally or physically assaulted concerning their sexual orientation, and such acts will not be considered hate crimes. In addition to these legal deficiencies, a dominant culture that favors heterosexism and norms of masculinity reinforces more insidious harm. Specifically, this manifests itself in families that reject children who come out. Such children are verbally and physically bullied, which results in increasing internalization of homophobia and identity denial.

This has culminated in eight out of 10 LGBT students being harassed at school, one in five falling victim to physical assault, and a suicide rate more than twice that of straight peers. The struggle of those who experience discrimination will not be alleviated by good intentions, political rhetoric or friendly compromise. Regarding the most recent national dialogue, free speech to some may serve as taxing reminders of discrimination to others. For advocates of traditional marriage, denying same-sex marriage may be both a talking point and a passionate conviction. For LGBT individuals, it may be those things, but more immediately it is an experience and fact of life, grouped alongside many other inequities. Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day may represent support for the First Amendment, religious values or just quality fast food. To a more vulnerable group, it represents a parade of values thought to be of greater priority than their own rights. For those truly vulnerable in our society, Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day has been a daily occurrence for some time. With recordbreaking sales, LGBT Americans witnessed a quantified measure of heterosexual apathy at best and advocacy of discrimination at worst. To be straight in America is to never experience this darker perspective. It is to impact a debate without fear of how that debate will impact you. I believe weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re better than this convenience. We must resist the heterosexual privilege of temporary commitment by recognizing and protesting real discrimination, seeking feedback from the LGBT population and actively supporting this groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggle for equality. This can (and inevitably must) be accomplished beyond the scope of fast food. Lastly, for those overwhelmed by the Chick-Fil-A debate, feel free to pack up your opinions and go home. The party is already dying down. But as long as we are moving on, I hope we can all reach agreement on something: that everyone has an opinion, but only some will endure the experience. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably not as much fun for them. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jacob Martin is a third-year PhD student in industrial-organizational psychology from Winston-Salem, N.C.

A wedding made perfect by more than a white dress A bridezillaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big day has to go just perfectly. Nail technicians be warned: a slight over-trimming of the bridezilla claws could ruin her entire marriage. Even a normally likeable and sane woman can turn into hell on wheels as soon as a diamond engagement ring is slipped on her left hand. Everything has to be just as she dreamt it would be since the age of 6. Hours are spent agonizing over every menial cupcake, chair cover, rosebud and dripping candle, which are of course working together to be part of the dream wedding. As college-aged students we have experienced or will soon experience the fine art of attending weddings. There has been a recent trend in weddings that places special focus on the material aspects of the ceremony. Hence the infamous bridezilla. But keep in mind the purpose of a wedding is not to celebrate in the material ceremony. A wedding is supposed to be a special, sentimental occasion celebrating all your strong relationships. The coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship with their friends and family are the most beautiful parts of the wedding. Without them in attendance, who would see those exotic flower arrangements or, more importantly, be there to support a couple as they experience a dramatic new step? Marriage is a part of life and it is important to set yourself and your loved ones up for a happy marriage. However, a perfect wedding dress does not a perfect marriage make, as many celebrity divorces can attest. If a friend is getting married, be supportive and be sure to keep the stress of ceremony preparation to a minimum by taking things as they come. So what if the couple is having an Elvis-themed wedding? A friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job is to be supportive of the relationship. If you are the bride or groom to-be, be sure to appreciate the friends and family who are supporting you, above and beyond any of the material facets of your big day. Ladies, avoid full bridezilla mode. Whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re engaged or happily single, it is important to have the proper perspective on the material pleasures in your life. Where weddings are concerned, a focus on the venue, dresses and place cards can dampen the joy of being with the ones you love. Focusing on your loved ones will ensure that you truly have the wedding of your dreams.

... free speech to some may serve as taxing reminders of discrimination to others.

MAILBOX Solar panels atop renovated Jackson Street building could spark a green revolution I love the feeling of strolling through downtown and north campus after being away for summer. The areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old Southern charm and Broad Street magic invoke days gone by. In many ways, our administration is a throwback as well, as it often holds to traditional ideals and conventional practices instead of shaping the future. So imagine the smile on my face when I walked past a newly-installed array of solar panels atop the recently-renovated Jackson Street Building.

Bulldog Bucks an easy way to pay on and off campus BY BRITTANY FUTCH The Red & Black Bulldog Bucks provide students with an easy way to pay for services in and around the University campus, according to the director of card services, William McGee. But students living off campus do not always find it as convenient. Emily Buck, a sophomore recreation and leisure studies major from Lawrenceville, does not see as much of a need for Bulldog Bucks now that she no longer lives in the dorms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably never use them now,â&#x20AC;? Buck said. Even while living on campus, Buck primarily used her Bulldog Bucks within her dorm building, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I almost only used them on laundry and the occasional vending machine,â&#x20AC;? Buck said. Ashley Dunbar, a junior biology major from Ellenwood, said she frequently used her

Bulldog Bucks while living on campus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used them for just about everything, for laundry, and printing and food sometimes,â&#x20AC;? Dunbar said. This year, Dunbar is living off campus, and the accommodations she used to pay for with her student account are included in her apartment complex. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really use them. Just for printing because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a printer,â&#x20AC;? Dunbar said. But McGee said Bulldog Bucks remain a convenient way to pay even for students living off campus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of locations on campus donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accept credit or cash,â&#x20AC;? McGee said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the money is already on studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; IDs, which they typically have on them.â&#x20AC;? Businesses that accept Bulldog Bucks extend card services beyond the campus, providing students with more opportunities to use the Universitysponsored form of payment. The card services

website advertises that companies have shown a 10 to 60 percent sales increase by accepting Bulldog Bucks, but McGee said it benefits the students as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The businesses are looking for ways to provide better service to students,â&#x20AC;? McGee said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a convenient and safe way to pay.â&#x20AC;? Despite the options, Buck will still use her bank-issued debit card the most. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a harder time keeping up with the money on my [student] card,â&#x20AC;? Buck said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to keep up with two cards instead of one.â&#x20AC;? But McGee said students of all years tend to keep money in their Bulldog Bucks accounts. Buck agreed Bulldog Bucks can be convenient to have as a back-up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll keep some money in my account for emergency situations,â&#x20AC;? she said. Dunbar also plans to keep a small amount of money in her Bulldog

Bulldog Bucks provide a way for students to pay at local merchants as well as places on campus. FILE PHOTO Bucks account. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe like $10,â&#x20AC;? Dunbar said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;just for backup.â&#x20AC;?

There is science in art, though not everyone may realize it. David Puett, regents professor and former department head of biochemistry and molecular biology at the University, is hoping to amend this deficit in how we perceive science and art through a book he is writing with his wife. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal with PUETT this book is to bridge the gap between art and science,â&#x20AC;? said Puett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about the science in art. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about the mathematics of art.â&#x20AC;? The working title for the book is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Renaissance Florence from a Dual Perspective: Art in Science, Science in Art.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;My wife and I have traveled to Florence repeatedly, both with the Foundation Fellows program and the UGA Cortona program,â&#x20AC;? said Puett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had opportunity to observe how students from both disciplines [art and science] approach art.â&#x20AC;? In fact, those observations by both Puett and Susan, his wife, are what largely catapulted the idea and subsequent decision to publish the book. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We came up with the idea for the book together â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just talking about it and listening to discussions between science students and art students we accompanied to Florence,â&#x20AC;? Susan said. This is the first instance that the two have collaborated on a publication.

Carmina and Zebulon Taylor got married so they could work in the same place when they apply to join the Peace Corps. NICHOLAS FOURIEZOS/Staff

Married: Can be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;weirdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; subject â&#x2014;? FROM PAGE 1 day join the Peace Corps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She and I both wanted to do the Peace Corps once we graduate, and she did some research into it and found that in order to go together, couples have to be married for at least a year prior to going out,â&#x20AC;? Zebulon said. Carmina realized that if they were going to be together during that time, they would have to get married soon, or else they would miss the one-year deadline. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re both graduating December 2013,â&#x20AC;? Carmina said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zeb said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just get married.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I had been sure about it, but I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to let him know until I was sure that he was sure.â&#x20AC;? After living together for the summer, the two wed in juvenile court with their closest friends and their family. The reception was a small dinner at DePalmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Italian Cafe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not flashy,â&#x20AC;? Zebulon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a lowkey ceremony.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;A low-key day actually,â&#x20AC;? Carmina added. And though they insist that being married

hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed their relationship, the pair admitted that it has changed the attitudes of those around them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a weird subject. I can understand that because it would probably make me uncomfortable because when I think about it, its really weird,â&#x20AC;? Zebulon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sort of conception [of being married] is very different than the reality. [It] is not weird -- the main difficulties are in the stereotypes, how we are perceived by others.â&#x20AC;? But for Lance and Kate Stonespring, a couple who got married before their senior year and graduated spring 2012, it was their faith and families that carried them past any concerns about outside perception. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the things we were talking about was one question: why are we waiting to get married? Because of society â&#x20AC;&#x201D; society says that you should graduate first, you should probably have a job and then get married,â&#x20AC;? Kate said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But [as Christians] we live differently than the world in a lot of ways, so why are we conforming to this standard of

society?â&#x20AC;? For Lance, it was a foregone conclusion that they would end up together, built from the first time they started dating when Kate was entering the University as a freshman in 2008, and he was a student at Kennesaw State University. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was something that I knew from the get-go,â&#x20AC;? Lance said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess my feelings were leaning that way, and she kind of caught up to me.â&#x20AC;? But Kate wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so sure about marriage -- at least, in the beginning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a little hesitant at first,â&#x20AC;? Kate said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started dating January of [2009], and by December I feel like I was pretty sure that he was the one.â&#x20AC;? But it was ultimately the support of their parents which allowed the couple to go ahead and take the plunge and go forward with their plans to marry following their junior year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew that I could only be happy if my dad and mom were happy for me,â&#x20AC;? Kate said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were just behind us 100 percent, and that means so much to me.â&#x20AC;?

Georgia alum Reese Hoffa won his first Olympic medal in London last week, a bronze in shot put. EVAN STICHLER/Staff

Ex-Bulldog Hoffa, now Olympic bronze medalist, visits Athens Former Georgia shot putter Reese Hoffa was already proud of his career, even before he left for the 2012 Olympic Games this summer. He could boast of an illustrious track career â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a three-time Olympian who earned a medal in almost every major track and field tournament in the world, including an annual world best of 22.34 meters in 2007. But now he can add Olympic medalist to the list of accomplishments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a lot of vindication that happens when you officially get a medal,â&#x20AC;? Hoffa said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Especially when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been blessed to have done it three times.â&#x20AC;? Hoffa threw for a 21.23 mark in the London competition, edging out fellow American Christian Cantwell by .04 meters.

Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler were just like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If I had any money right now, I would buy that chair off of you,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Hoffa said. But in the end, Hoffa recognizes his time in the limelight is destined to fade â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and rapidly, at that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a couple of months, people will be excited that you are a medalist, but the effect wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the same,â&#x20AC;? Hoffa said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But luckily, cross my fingers, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done a great job of putting out a consistent effort in the shot put at a very high level.â&#x20AC;?

Hoffa imagines a slower life and a new coaching profession. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids need a reason to come out there â&#x20AC;&#x201D; even if they just go to football after, at least Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have four years of coaching some quality kids, either at Oconee or Clarke â&#x20AC;&#x201D; whoever gets to me first and gives me the best offer,â&#x20AC;?

SPORTS NOTEBOOK

In second week, Bulldogs look a bit lethargic RYAN BLACK The Red & Black On the opening day of the fall semester, Georgia came out with an uneven, sluggish performance, according to head coach Mark Richt. More importantly for a team with the high hopes, Richt said that the No. 6 Bulldogsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; play wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x153;good enough to become a champion.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still trying to get it done, but I think I saw a little bit of guys not giving it every little ounce they had,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say it was the entire team, but there was enough of it going on that it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really that exciting to me... weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making progress, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to create really good habits, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure we did that today as a unit.â&#x20AC;? When asked what he attributed the apathetic showing to practice, Richt pointed to a number of things. Camp, a time when all focus is solely on football, has ended. The beginning of school brings its own set of distractions. And the seemingly interminable wait between now and the season opener on Sept. 1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now is the time youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve really got to focus on getting better and not lose any momentum that we created during camp,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bottom line is, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to be mentally strong enough to continue to create habits that are going to help us win. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all there is to it. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re creating habits one way or another. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re either good ones or bad ones. Even if you go seven-eighths speed or 90 percent, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not quite good enough, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to get everything out of them.â&#x20AC;? Richt said no one at the tailback spot has pulled away from the pack to cement himself as the clear-cut starter. He acknowledged that â&#x20AC;&#x153;theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all really good backsâ&#x20AC;? and that he foresaw all of them getting their chance to play this season. Just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask him who will be in the backfield when the 2012 campaign begins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be the starter, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be anxious to see all of them.â&#x20AC;? One of the players competing for the job is redshirt sophomore Ken Malcome. Richt has been impressed with Malcomeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s progress, and running backs coach Bryan McClendon has noticed as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coach McClendon made a comment today just about how diligent Ken has been to make sure he understands every little thing about his job,â&#x20AC;? Richt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obviously known enough to function in the system.â&#x20AC;? Now the challenge for Malcome is to get past just functioning in the system, which Richt regards as the second level of understanding. The coach believes Malcome is close to ascending to the third and final level: becoming an expert. The man tasked with defending Aaron Murrayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blindside is getting better and better with his role. Richt said left tackle Kenarious Gates has made strides during the last few practices, especially in pass protection. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes you get so anxious to strike somebody or pass-set quickly, you might set too wide and a guy

KEY PLAYERS Ken Malcome: redshirt sophomore Bryan McLendon: running backs coach

will beat you inside, or you try to strike him too soon and you get overextended and a guy goes by you,â&#x20AC;? Richt

said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to be a little bit patient and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to time your punch and keep your inside-out leverage so a guy doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t beat you inside ... Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to have confidence when he goes outside of you that you have the athleticism to run him past the quarterback.â&#x20AC;? From experience as Florida Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offensive coordinator/play caller, Richt noted that

directing the offense from above helped him become aware he was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;visual learner.â&#x20AC;? In the final moments of practice, Richt said he got a better feel for what was happening on the field from the higher vantage point.

Newfield named to watch list

Bostick signs to safety spot

Another Georgia athlete is up for a pre-season award. And yes, it is a football player, but not the type that takes the field at Sanford Stadium. Junior Alexa Newfield of the Georgia womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer team has been named to the Missouri Athletic Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hermann Trophy Watch List â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an award that is regarded as the Heisman Trophy of collegiate soccer. Coming off a sophomore campaign that consisted an All-SouthNewfield eastern Conference and National Soccer Coaches Association of America first team selection, Newfield will be joining 37 other women on the watch list. The awards presentation will then take place on Fri., Jan. 11, during a banquet at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis.

Josh Harvey-Clemons is listed as a linebacker on the UGA football roster, but recently was moved to safety and says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s willing to play â&#x20AC;&#x153;wherever they wanted me to play.â&#x20AC;? SEAN TAYLOR/STAFF

Making some adjustments Safety, cornerback or linebacker, Harvey-Clemons is ready for anything BY ROBBIE OTTLEY Red and Black staff writer There are 108 miles between Valdosta and Gainesville, Fla., but 245 between Valdosta and Athens. That translates into a two-and-a-half hour longer drive. And if safety Josh Harvey-Clemonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; grandfather is to be believed, that distance made a big difference in his grandsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recruiting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Personally, I thought it would be down to Florida and Florida State,â&#x20AC;? Woodrow Clemons told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in February. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I

search: bookstores â&#x20AC;şâ&#x20AC;ş thought it was coming down to those two. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m saying that because of the drive and closeness to those two schools.â&#x20AC;? But Harvey-Clemons put on a Georgia hat this spring, and his grandfather couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be happier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little more excited than I am, you know?â&#x20AC;? HarveyClemons said about his grandfather last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was up here Monday, matter of fact, for the first parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; practice. And he got on his Georgia gear and everything.â&#x20AC;? When Clemons arrived, though, he found himself watching his grandson play at a position that was different than the plan before fall camp. Harvey-Clemons played linebacker in high school, and is listed in the Georgia media guide at that position. However, at just 208 pounds, he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the heft to play at linebacker, according to Georgia head coach Mark Richt, who announced the decision to move him to safety recently. But the shift to safety didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t faze Harvey-Clemons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was gonna play wherever they wanted me to play, because I knew myself that I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t at the right weight to be down there with those tight ends and tackles,â&#x20AC;? he said. Harvey-Clemons said that he eventually wants to move back to linebacker, if he can put on the weight. That goal will take a lot of protein and time in the weight room, Harvey-Clemons acknowledged. But if he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reach that peak, it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a problem for Richt. And despite being an unusual fit for the position physically â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Harvey Clemons is unusually tall for a safety, at 6-foot-5 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Richt said the freshmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletic ability overshadows any

doubts he might have about playing in the secondary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He could play safety without question. I think he could play the nickel, I think he could probably play corner,â&#x20AC;? Richt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just very athletic, he has very good ball skills, got a lot of quickness and burst, and I imagine he could be a pretty good receiver too if he wanted to be. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about what we thought he was.â&#x20AC;? An important aspect of the secondary that might be a weakness for a linebacker is the ability to break up and intercept passes. But Harvey-Clemons said he had four interceptions in camp at the end of Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practice, leading the team at the time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got good ball skills,â&#x20AC;? Richt said. Harvey-Clemons downplayed his success, though, attributing it to being, â&#x20AC;&#x153;in the right place at the right time.â&#x20AC;? Every freshman has to make adjustments when they enter college, but Harvey-Clemons and his fellow Bulldog rookies have dealt with more than most. Defensive coordinator Todd Granthamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schemes represent a considerable step up in complexity from HarveyClemonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; previous level of play. Harvey-Clemons says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been putting in downs at strong and free safety, as well as at cornerback in the nickel formation. And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working to be proficient at all those positions, even if he has a preference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really like the strong â&#x20AC;&#x2122;cause I feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m closer down and can make a lot more tackles on ball carriers,â&#x20AC;? he said. Richt nevertheless admitted that he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to say much more about his use of HarveyClemons in the secondary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wanna tell the whole world what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Georgia landed commit No. 25 for the recruiting class of 2013 on Monday morning. Three-star safety Paris Bostick from Plant High School in Tampa, Fla., ultimately made the decision between Georgia and Arkansas based on the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stronger academic program. To emphasize his decision, he updated his Facebook cover photo to a picture of a Georgia Bulldog. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a real close choice between those two schools, because they both had a lot of the things I wanted in terms of football,â&#x20AC;? Bostick told ESPN.comâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dawg Nation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, I chose Georgia based more on the academics and the fact that if football doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work out I know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be in a strong academic environment.â&#x20AC;? Bostick is the third athlete from Plant over the last four years to join the Bulldogs, following in quarterback Aaron Murray and former tight end Orson Charlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; steps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seeing the interaction between the players and coaches, it was more than just a team and the players were more than teammates,â&#x20AC;? Bostick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They do so much together whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going out to eat or playing board games or just being like brothers to each other. The 6-foot-1, 208 pound senior was one of the standout performers at Dawg Night last month, showing off his versatility and instinct. He played on both sides of the ball and has stated that he would not be opposed to doing more of that in the future. In the end, it may have been the conversations with current players that eventually swayed his decision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the commits were telling me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We know who you are. This is where the championship is going to be.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So it was definitely a good vibe,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Defensive line gets a boost In a matter of two days, Georgia has bolstered what looked like a thin 2013 defensive back recruiting class. JUCO safety Shaquille Fluker of East Mississippi Community College committed on Tuesday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a day removed from the Bulldogs receiving another safety commitment from Paris Bostick. Fluker chose the Bulldogs over Kansas and Nebraska. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Georgia is who I am going with,â&#x20AC;? Fluker told ESPN.com. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I called Coach Mark Richt and Coach [Scott] Lakatos last Thursday night and they were happy that I wanted to be a part of their football team and the Bulldog family.â&#x20AC;? The 6-foot-1, 205 pound safety is commit No. 26 for Georgia and adds more depth that is going to be needed at the position once the 2012 campaign comes to a close. Fluker never visited any other schools except for Georgia and wanted to make his decision before the upcoming season began. His physicality is what helps him stand out, delivering punishing blows in his film and even knocking an opposing playerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helmet off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Georgia has] a hard defense that allows the strong safety to come down against the run,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is perfect for me because I love to hit.â&#x20AC;? Fluker is expected to be an early enrollee in the spring in order to learn the defense and battle for an opportunity to see playing time early. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; From staff reports

Grantham gets into the football fray

The Bulldogs participated in drills this week where defensive coordinator Todd Grantham (left) took on blocking duties. SEAN TAYLOR/Staff

Observations from the periods of practice (five minutes each, 20 minutes total) the media was permitted to view on this week: â&#x20AC;˘ Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham was physical with the outside linebackers, serving as a blocker in a drill for his players. The players had to shed off the blocker and hit a tackling dummy representing the ball carrier. â&#x20AC;˘ Kolton Houston, Watts Dantzler and Caleb Drake received extra feedback from

offensive line coach Will Friend during one of their blocking runthroughs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Off the angle, off the ricochet,â&#x20AC;? Friend told them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If [the defender] donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to you, just keep going.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;˘ Grantham wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only coach to partake in drills with his unit, as wide receivers coach Tony Ball defended against his players in a cover two formation. â&#x20AC;˘ Five players were seen wearing green jerseys: Cornerbacks

Branden Smith, Damian Swann and Malcolm Mitchell; tailback Brandon Harton and tight end Ty Flournoy-Smith. This did not prevent them from practicing, however, as all five took part in drills with their respective units. â&#x20AC;˘ The tight ends engaged in a drill which saw them take off after the snap and run around cones to help them to fine-tune their route running.

Finding Fashion: Whimsy for a funeral Last week I Googled â&#x20AC;&#x153;how to dress for a funeral.â&#x20AC;? The Internet presented me with a pretty clear consensus: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sensibleâ&#x20AC;? black dress. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sensibleâ&#x20AC;? black shoes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sensibleâ&#x20AC;? hem length and â&#x20AC;&#x153;sensibleâ&#x20AC;? jewelry. The thing is, I have to go to this funeral on Thursday. I have to find my passport to go to it, and I have to fly across an ocean to go to it. And the sad truth is my parents say I dress too â&#x20AC;&#x153;whimsicallyâ&#x20AC;? to go to this funeral.

Julia Carpenter Managing Editor

And by â&#x20AC;&#x153;whimsically,â&#x20AC;? I assume they meanâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Actually, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not really sure what they mean. So my dad put $50 in my account earlier this week to buy a â&#x20AC;&#x153;sensibleâ&#x20AC;? black dress, â&#x20AC;&#x153;sensibleâ&#x20AC;? black shoes and â&#x20AC;&#x153;something else to wear thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, you know, still not â&#x20AC;&#x153;whimsical.â&#x20AC;? Maybe they want shoulder pads. (Shoulder pads mean grieving, right?) I wandered up and down the aisles of Ann Taylor LOFT and Black & White Market earlier this week, but I just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to buy anything. My mind has become a sad room for sad memories and everyday trivialities and tissues â&#x20AC;&#x201D; there is no space for funeral fashion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I was Queen of the World,â&#x20AC;? I thought to myself, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it would totally be socially acceptable to wear sweat pants and hoodies to the wake. With flip-flops. And no make-up.â&#x20AC;? Flipping through rack after rack of â&#x20AC;&#x153;sensibleâ&#x20AC;? black clothing, I thought about how the dearly departed would never really care what I wore to

this funeral. He would be much more concerned with what movies Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d seen recently, and what I think about the U.S. in menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer and how London was entirely ruined by the Olympics and the accompanying hullabaloo. If I brought up heel height and collar width, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d laugh. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d tell me not to worry. My momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind, in contrast, is focused on this stuff. And there was a sickening moment, in between the petites section and shoe rack at Macyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, when I realized that that should be my primary concern: easing my motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind â&#x20AC;&#x201D; making space in my own tissue-y grief for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;sensibleâ&#x20AC;? concerns that so preoccupy my motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. So sure, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll buy some new clothes. And I will stand prim and proper at this event with all the somber respectability of a 40-year-old in grief. Also, I have to get a manicure, Mom says. You know, because people will pause in their crying to criticize my polish. This manicure is for you, Mom. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay too much attention to the lavender color. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Julia Carpenter is actually very sad

Bee happy: Alumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sweet success BY TIFFANY STEVENS The Red & Black For most of his life, beekeeper Dan Harris didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like honey. The University alum, who owns and operates Booger Hill Bee Company in Danielsville, has always been fascinated by fuzzy, buzzing, pollinating creatures. But with a father allergic to bee stings, beekeeping seemed an option far afield. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a weird thing. But of course, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a weird guy,â&#x20AC;? Harris said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always thought I wanted to have bees. And I never liked honey. That was the weird thing. I just wanted to have them. But I never kept them as a younger man because my father was allergic to things.â&#x20AC;? But in 1999, a change happened. Thirty years

as an engineer was wearing Harris thin. His life path led to a need for new career paths. That need led to the Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s horticulture program. And back to bees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While I was working on my degree in horticulture, I saw this class [entymology] offered, and by then Dad had passed away and so it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a threat to him,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just seemed like a natural thing.â&#x20AC;? Now, Harris manages more than 200 hives, teaches bee keeping classes at the University and in Kennesaw and sells his product weekly at the Athens Farmers Market. He makes mead he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like that others do, makes vinegar products from honey that no oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever heard of and experiments with honey-centered recipes. Harris has learned

the nectar of his labor is no longer an unsavory sweetener. The problem was with store-bought brands â&#x20AC;&#x201D; sterilized honey with all the good strained out of it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t not taste what I had produced,â&#x20AC;? Harris said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I discovered was the honey I produced â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the honey that a real honest-togoodness beekeeper produces ... is really so much grander than what you can find in a grocery store.â&#x20AC;? Beekeeping has been a winding path for Harris â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from Georgia Tech to the Bulldog Nation, from engineering to the great outdoors. As Harris hits his stride as a successful local entrepreneur, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s learned itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never too late to figure out what you want to be.

Turn Me On â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Breaking Badâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; When a show starts out with an unknown kid riding through the desert, you know something terrible is about to happen. When you are a fan of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Breaking Bad,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; you immediately know something bad is going to happen. Else it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Breaking Bad.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; With â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dead Freight,â&#x20AC;? the newest episode, the hit AMC show has definitely raised the bar for intensity. Featuring the new meth-producing crew of Walt, Jesse, Mike and Kuby (Saulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guy with the â&#x20AC;&#x153;broken downâ&#x20AC;? dump truck), the show introduces new morality issues for the crew and reveals all-time-lows for some of the newer characters. After all the crazy twists of the previous seasons, Walt eventually comes out on top, but with what he refers to as â&#x20AC;&#x153;very little money.â&#x20AC;? He and his expletive-expletive, would-that-I-could-say-it â&#x20AC;&#x153;wifeâ&#x20AC;? Skyler have a pretty sour marriage. Skyler basically wants Walt to die from his cancer, which will undoubtedly fuel Walt into some crazy violence later on. But at the moment, all he cares about is making millions. The team needs methylamine in order to continue their production of the almost 100 percent pure blue meth. And, as per usual for his picky

As per usual, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Breaking Badâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; contains only dramatic, intense, terrible situations. cooking habits, Walter wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t settle for making meth without it. What results is probably one of the most nail-biting â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Breaking Badâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; episodes yet: The crew is back in business, with a twisted, on-edge episode that was not without heartbreaking, jaw-dropping reveals â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it turns out the new guy, Todd is a total expletiveexpletive. With a violent twist ending from the crewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s near disaster, next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s episode will be one not to miss. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Wes Mayer

Now Showing! â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Bourne Legacyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Bourne Legacyâ&#x20AC;? exists sans without Jason Bourne â&#x20AC;&#x201D; even though you can see his name carved into the underside of a bunkbed. But if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to the movie expecting to see a surprise appearance and awesome fight scenes from the crafty Matt Damon, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be sorely disappointed. That being said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Bourne Legacyâ&#x20AC;? stands on its own. Jeremy Renner plays Aaron Cross, a member of Operation Outcome. After Bourne exposes Operation Blackbriar and the Treadstone Project, the CIA decides to kill off all their special forces by switching their agentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; medication. Through a combination of luck, skill and situational awareness, Cross

finds himself as the only remaining member of Operation Outcome. He has the CIA constantly tracking him and trying to kill him before he can reveal their secrets. While the movie has a larger amount of dialogue and plot development than the earlier â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bourneâ&#x20AC;? movies, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still plenty of amazing fight scenes. The cinematographyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful, the characters are casted perfectly but the story lineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rather

linear. Once itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s understandable, it becomes predictable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Bourne Legacyâ&#x20AC;? may not have the lasting appeal of the earlier Bourne movies, but it does have the action and adventure needed from a summer blockbuster film. Enough to satisfy most movie-goers, anyways.

UP ALL NIGHT Late-night eats stem a hangover or simply cap an evening Want a late night snack after hitting up the bars downtown? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not alone. Many students flock from the bar scene to booths, dressed to the nines and drooling for french fries. For some, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hangover deterrent. For others, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a full stomach to cap a full night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Late night food usually ends up being one of the best worst decisions youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ever make all night,â&#x20AC;? said Kyle Page a senior exercise and sport major from Athens. Here are some of The Red & Blackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pick of the best places to end up after your night on the town.

On Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open till 3 a.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tried a little Al with sweet peppers and buffalo bleu fries than you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had a complete downtown experience,â&#x20AC;? said Mike Pizarek, a senior political science and criminal justice major from Athens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Make sure to get the sandwich soaked in the French dip type of sauce and take a shower afterwards.â&#x20AC;? From a warm Philly steak or build your own burger, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the ultimate late night you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t regret.

10. Pita Pit

7. Downtown hot dog stands

If you want to eat late at night and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily want your calories to go to waste on a greasy pizza, Pita Pit is your destination. They have vegetarian options, but my personal favorite is the Chicken Crave. You may as well give up now with this delicious pita wrapped with melted provolone and grilled chicken. Add whatever toppings you want â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they have everything.

9. The Grill

Oh so tasty, and oh so many options. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a loyal patron, you know about the famous feta fries. And, they are open 24/7 for your convenience. Order whatever your heart desires - they even serve breakfast at all times. The Super Bird turkey sandwich is a classic, and you can never go wrong with a hearty burger. Plus, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never a dull moment if you sit near the window and watch passersby along College Avenue.

You may garnish with relish, ketchup and mustard and be on your way.

I know, Taco Bell may not be your first thought of a late night snack, but when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bright eyed and bushytailed from downtown, you may just want something salty. The cheesy gordita crunch is just bad enough to be absolutely delicious. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a crunchy taco wrapped in a warm flatbread with melted cheese and topped with zesty pepper jack sauce.

2. Little Italy

If you want something greasy, cheesy and cheap than Little Italy is the perfect solution. For about $2 you can get a huge floppy slice of pizza. But be warned, they usually have a line out the door and close promptly at 2 a.m. They are not afraid to send grumbling tummies away, even if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve waited in line for 10 minutes.

Strategically located on nearly every major street corner in Athens, you can never go wrong with Waffle House. You can never second-guess a good ole chocolate chip waffle. Even the company is extremely entertaining. But be warned, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always freezing inside to keep customers from falling asleep while late-nighting.

1. Cozy Yum Yum

Located next to Pita Pit is a cozy hole in the wall - no pun intended called Cozy Yum Yum. If you are looking for some late night Thai cuisine that is quality and affordable, this is your spot.

The woman at the counter is as sweet as she can be and the authentic food will overcome the sketchy looking exterior the second you take a bite.
