Number of rape reports may change with season By Emily Schoone @emschoo33

In past years, rape reports have decreased in number during the spring semester, only to increase again in the summer and fall semester. “We always gear up for September,” said Sally Sheppard, executive director of The Cottage, a rape victim and child advocacy center, in a previous Red & Black article published in November 2012. “We know August and September are going to be pretty bad.” In Athens from May 1 to Aug. 15, there were seven reported rapes in 2012, five in 2011 and 10 in 2010. During the summertime, no reports of sexual assault or rape came from the University of Georgia campus. Sheppard said an increase of reported rapes in the summer could be due to warmer weather and the relaxed atmosphere of summertime that leads people out of doors. Neither she nor University of Georgia Police Chief Jimmy Williamson was willing to speculate as to whether this summer will see higher numbers in reported rapes. The higher volume of rapes continues into the fall, according to past police reports. From the average start of the school year, Aug. 15, through Dec. 31, a comparatively higher number of rapes were reported. In 2010, two sexual assaults were reported on campus and five were reported in Athens. The number of reports dipped slightly in 2011, with two on-campus assaults or rapes reported and four in Athens. The highest number of reports, four on-campus and five in Athens, occurred in the fall semester of 2012. Williamson said these numbers match the trend UGA PD sees in rape reports each year. “Just from some of the historical perspective we looked at, I would say the fall is slightly higher, there’s not enough to statistically say for sure that more o c c u r, ” Williamson said. But fall 2012 saw more than “slightly higher” sex crime reports. “In August, it was pretty slow,” Sheppard said in the previous Red & Black article. “But September blew us out and October [did], too. There [had] been a consistent number of cases coming in. There was the usual spike in September, and then it just stayed up.” At the time, Sheppard said that the trend of a greater number of reported rapes continuing into October was an unusual occurrence. Typically, the number only increased in September. See RAPE, Page 6

Stress, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll BY YOUSEF BAIG | @YousefBaig


t was a final show the members of Perpetual Groove saw coming for some time. Well, most of them did.

Since McDonald returned to the band in November 2011 after taking time off to be with his family, things were never steady on the road for Perpetual Groove — 2012 was a year of ups and downs, both physically and mentally. “When I came back…I was very clear that if we’re going to be a band, we’re going to be a successful band,” McDonald said. “The sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll thing is fun and easy to say in your 20s, and now we’re all old men and we’re going to take this seriously and it’s going to happen that way. I don’t think it was that it wasn’t being taken seriously, it was just that there were bigger problems than we even knew then.” As is the case for most jam bands, the touring was extensive. PGroove went up and down the East Coast multiple times throughout the year, branching out West on a few occasions, and playing multiple music festivals including Wakarusa Music Festival and Hangout Music Fest. But the music was starting to falter. The crisp sound began to stale. The cohesiveness of Perpetual Groove began to unravel. Much of the decline was due to Butler’s substance abuse on the road — before, during and after shows. The grind of touring facilitated the habits, and it began to affect the onstage product fans came to expect. In the past, the rest of the band wouldn’t address the issue directly. It was the elephant in the room making its home backstage. But after what the band considered to be a poor performance on New Year’s Eve in 2011, it realized something had to change if it was to continue playing music. “It wasn’t probably stated [forthright] enough like, ‘Hey, we can’t go out and perform like that if you’re going to do this,’” Suttle said. “We made the conscious effort through 2012 to kind of steer things in the right direction, and so when instances like that occurred again, we said something.” When the group began to get out in front of the issue, you could hear the difference. Perpetual Groove returned to the Georgia

Theatre on July 14 and played one of its best shows of the year. “I think that was the best show we’ve ever played — the argument could be made,” McDonald said. “We debuted new songs, everyone was on point. That summer was some of the best the band had sounded.” The setlist was a balance McDonald always tried to strike. There were favorites such as “53 More Things To Do in Zero Gravity,” “Cabulo Monstrosity” and an encore that featured a nearly 24-minute “Speed Queen.” It was the first time “Paper Dolls” was performed. Everything appeared to be back to the standard definition of normal. That chemistry returned, and the product the band was selling was being consumed like it wanted. It didn’t last. “Then after that, things started to slowly devolve again,” Suttle said. “You could kind of hear the same aspects of like vocals being sloppy on the mic, not taking cues, and … it was a situation where you realize this is kind of — not embarrassing — but it doesn’t look good.” The decline became steeper as the year wore on, picking up in the winter months. Each night on the road became a battle to maintain a living instead of sharing its passion with the world. “Then to come home and when your wife asks you how tour was, be like, ‘I don’t think we represented ourselves very well,’” McDonald said. “It lost the rewarding aspect of it, and it turned way more into a struggle that wasn’t a lot of fun at all. For God’s sake, the reason we’re in a rock band is to have fun — to make music and have fun. I’m here to create something, and give somebody an experience.” One show that stood out was on Dec. 6 when the group played in Breckenridge, Colo. — a place it frequented during the last few years. “That was the one I remember specifically where we’re playing ‘Walking in Place,’ and I’m trying to get to the next section, and I keep getting waved off, or the singing equivalent of getting shouted down,” Suttle said. “[A way] of saying, ‘Hang on, wait, wait. I know you’re trying to build, but I’m talking here’ kind of thing.” At that point, Suttle wasn’t even upset about not progressing through the song. Physically, it was taking its toll. His play was always machine-like, maintaining a pace and playing with an intensity that matched the focused look he wore when he played.

“It lost the rewarding aspect of it, and it turned way more into a struggle that wasn’t a lot of fun at all.”

Essays discourage applicants It’s not too late to order!

Boston College received 26 percent less applications when it introduced admission essays, according to an article in the New York Times. The essay portion of applications has been commonplace at the University of Georgia for the last decade. John Albright, the interim associate director of admissions for processing at UGA, said that introducing essays resulted in a slight decrease in student applications at UGA, but that UGA doesn’t plan to changes its application process. Albright said that as applications started to increase, UGA needed to adopt a different method other than just looking at grades. This also included taking a closer look at transcripts and asking students to send first semester grades of a high school student’s senior year. — Matthew Simmons

CRIME NOTEBOOK 33-year-old woman reports rape April 23, 4-year-old daughter listed as witness A 33-year-old woman reported a rape Tuesday at 4:08 p.m. from Athens Regional Medical Center, according to an Athens-Clarke County report. The victim told the officer that she allegedly woke up at 6:30 a.m. the same day “disoriented, hurting, and naked in bed” after inviting neighbors over for dinner the night before. She could not remember anything except that they left “before the street lights came on.” She woke up with her fouryear-old daughter in her bed; her daughter is reported as the witness. The victim was unable to find her cigarettes or wallet on the countertop, but she found the clothes she had been wearing the night before at the front door, and her car keys on the ground, according to the report. She found her driver’s license was on the

floor of her car. She found $60 in cash, her Social Security cards, Medicaid cards and her family military ID card inside a wallet. A locked semi-automatic shotgun had been tampered with as well since the round she keeps loaded in the chamber was “removed and missing,” according to the report. The victim told the officer that the neighbors she had invited over were the “husband and his brother,” though she could not remember his name. She told the responding officer her neighbors were “good people.” She reportedly said she had consumed some alcohol the night before, but had not gotten drunk. — Emily Schoone

Student charged with open container at Twilight An Athens-Clarke County Police officer working at the Twilight Criterium was flagged down by a man in a beer garden who said that he suspected another man standing on the sidewalk with a beer had picked up a lost cell phone from the ground and put it in his pocket, according to an AthensClarke County Police report. The officer spoke with UGA student Christopher Joseph Daniels, 24, who allegedly said the phone he picked up was his. The officer told him to throw the beer he was drinking away, but Daniels

began to drink from the bottle. The officer threw it away for him and wrote a citation for an open container violation. Daniels reportedly said he thought he was in a drinking zone and “did not intend to sign the citation.” The officer explained that the signature “was purely an acknowledgement of receipt of the ticket and that failure to sign it would require he post a bond at the jail.” The officer said Daniels “refused again and again.” The officer put him in handcuffs and Daniels said he would sign it. The offi-

cer then gave him a pen and Daniels allegedly said he wanted to call someone. The officer told him he didn’t need to call anyone and “the time to sign the citation was now.” He still refused to sign the ticket and was arrested and charged with having an open container. The officer said Daniels “verged on the edge of public intoxication” and did not think he would appear in court. Daniels was taken to Clarke County Jail. — Kelly Whitmire

Oconee Street church members determined to ‘keep on keeping on’ Members of burned down church ‘will recover’ BY Kelly Whitmire @kellywhitmire When the Oconee Street United Methodist Church went up in flames on the evening of April 15, the fire took down more than just the building. Without a building, the congregation and programs held by the church have been forced to move. Oconee Street United Methodist Church stood for over a century and has about 100 members. Though the building is beyond repair, members of the church are holding together. “We’re trying to be as normal as we can be in our abnormal circumstance. So we’re having our worship services ... Sunday school for our kids, choir practice and those things that you normally associate with church life,” said Reverend Lisa Caine. “We’re doing our best to keep on keeping on.” Members of the church have been holding services in the indoor basketball court at Young Harris Memorial United Methodist Church. “We have been so fortunate that Young Harris Church, and some other facilities around as well have offered space to us, really from less than 24 hours Young Harris offered us space at their church, and we really appreciate them,” Caine said. “So we’re just taking it a week at a time right now, but they have been very generous to us.” Members of the Oconee Street church and Athens community held a vigil in April to honor the church. Caine said that the helpfulness of the community has meant a lot to her and the church. She said the support came from community members, other churches and former members of the church. “The community has really been overwhelming. I can’t even tell you how many emails and notes and phone calls that I have received, and not only I’ve received but other members of our congregation have received from people,” Caine said. “I talked today to the widow of a former pastor, who was pastor in the 1960s, so it’s just been amazing all the folks who have reached out to us.” Caine said that the church plans to rebuild on the same property, but that could take up to a year. She also said that she would like to see the church modernize without sacrificing its history. “I guess what I’d like to have would be the best of the old and the best of the new. The church is 143 years old, and so, parts of the church are very tradi-

tional and they have been on that hill for a very long time ... so I’m not too interested in changing the outside,” Caine said. “But of course, we want as many of the new innovations and comforts and facilities as we can fit into that space.” Besides the regular church services, Oconee Street was home to Our Daily Bread, a program by Action Ministries Athens that provides breakfast, lunch and weekend sack lunches seven days a week to Athens’ homeless, hungry and working poor. The program has been in town since 1989 and serves more than 60,000 meals a year. “They have moved that function now over to First Baptist Church. First Baptist was very gracious in offering space,” Caine said. “So, all of the meals — the whole feeding program — will be located at First Baptist for the interim until [the church is] rebuilt.” Action Ministries Athens could not be reached for comment, but Caine said the church is moving along with its other programs as well.

“All of their other programs are continuing ... not inside the church but in other buildings,” Caine said. “They’re continuing GED classes, computer literacy and financial literacy and individual case management.” Church trustee Rick Alpaugh said he sees the tragedy as an opportunity to promote closeness among the church members and affiliates of the church. “They’re in the transition of the recovery where they’re going to rebuild and it’s almost like a new beginning where they are looking into themselves” Alpaugh said. He also noted the strength and sense of community among the displaced church members. “It’s a devastation that they’ve lost their house of worship,” Alpaugh said, “but they have moved to a temporary facility. It is devastating and heart breaking, but they will recover.”

BY Evelyn Andrews @evelynvandrews The Campus Kitchen Project at the University of Georgia is a student organization that strives to create a more food-filled Athens. The Campus Kitchen Project is a national organization with 33 current Campus Kitchens in operation, according its website. UGA’s Campus Kitchen aims to “reduce food waste while simultaneously feeding a vulnerable population of seniors in the Athens area,” according to a Campus Kitchen webpage. Campus Kitchen focuses on reducing food waste because 40 percent of food in the United States is wasted. In contrast, one in six Americans are hungry. They also try to educate people on eating healthier, sustainable food It has a weekly schedule that includes delivering food to the hungry, volunteering to cook at soup kitchens and maintaining the food pantry at UGA. The food pantry was created to offer food to students who need help providing food for themselves, distributing food that is donated by restaurants, gardens, fraternities and sororities. Amy Wong, a volunteer with Campus Kitchen, said they deliver food to between 15 and 20 families each week in Athens. Wong, a junior from

Exam excuses have no place in college

OUR TAKE Morehead, other admins make new moves It gets lonely at the top. As President-Elect Jere Morehead prepares to move across the hall in the Administration Building to assume his new role as president, several others on campus are moving out, or will be in the foreseeable future. One senior vice president and the dean of the Terry College of Business will pack away their corner offices into boxes, having announced their departure earlier in the semester, while another vice president has already moved on. The first is staying right here in the Bulldog Nation; the second is returning to his heartland, as dean of the Pamplin School of Business at Virginia Tech; and the third has become president of the University of Southern Mississippi. This exodus cannot be attributed to the change in power at the top. As new presidents ascend to the post, choices must be made in reevaluating the path of the University. As Senior Vice President of Finance and Administration Tim Burgess said, “it seemed like a good time to take that break without disrupting any more than was already going to be changed some.” The puzzle pieces of the University of Georgia are now scattered about, with the edges of the framework remaining. As Morehead makes his move, it will rest with him and his search committees to reconfigure the landscape that lies before us. Along with the aforementioned leaders on campus, decisions remain on the dean of the engineering school as well as the position of provost. Morehead announced Monday that he wishes to emphasize economic development as president, providing a service to the state by “helping foster growth and community” in the surrounding areas. With the business, public/ international affairs and engineering deanships open, there is no better time than the present to make good on this wish. As Adams’ former righthand man, what path will he take to foster Adams’ legacy? Will he blaze his own trail and find his own confidant? These questions will remain as the pieces fall into place. — Nick Watson for the editorial board

How to explore Athens this summer


f you’re able to look past the impending dread of finals, you can flirt with the idea of summertime. Many must part with the Classic City over the next few months for jobs or home, but there are also those who are fortunate enough to extend their stay into the summer months. If you’re going to be around this summer, you should take advantage of the great opportunities Athens has to offer during the summer. 1) Class If you’re going to reside here all summer, one of the best things you can do is take a summer class. More courses are open to pick from, there are many sessions of summer class you can choose from and there is also a wide assortment of professors whose classes you may not be able to enroll in during the school year. These classes are also shorter, smaller and more interactive. 2) Night life Normally, venturing downtown can be a nightmare for those who are uncomfortable in crowds. Bars are packed, making it difficult to move or sit at the bar. In the summer, downtown is significantly less crowded and there are far fewer intoxicated students yelling in the streets. This time is perfect to get to know the restaurants, shops and bars in our beloved downtown Athens. 3) Venturing into other parts of Athens Being from Watkinsville, I know there is a lot more to Athens than just campus. However, not many share this knowl-

edge. Summer is a great time to explore the outer edges of Athens because of the free time and lighter workloads. 4) Walking around campus Even if you don’t take summer classes, simply strolling around campus for the view is a must. We have a gorgeous campus and during the school year we don’t always have time to appreciate it. Hurrying across campus for our next class or trying to avoid swarms of people often interferes with the beauty campus has to offer. Nothing will make you feel more blessed to be a Bulldog quite like taking a walk around North Campus on a warm summer day. It’s special to be in the Classic City 365 days a year, but the summer months add a little extra magic. While college will not last forever, the respect and love we have for Athens will never subside, especially during the months of sweet summertime. —Amber Estes is a sophomore from Athens majoring in public relations

This Reading Day, don’t reach for a textbook


eading Day: a day of possibilities far beyond forcing yourself into a flash cardinduced coma. Although it was introduced to us as a 24-hour window of cramming for finals, who could pass up an entire day of freedom right before the tidal wave of stress crashes down upon them? Studying is important, don’t get me wrong — but sometimes one day of relaxation is exactly what you need before you hit the books again. Sleep in, watch some Netflix and stay in your pajamas all day. It’s finals season, so anything goes. But then again, how can one let a full day go to waste? Just because you refuse to do anything productive doesn’t mean you can’t do anything at all. Last semester I bought a cheap plane ticket to New York City and used my Reading Day to explore The Big Apple. Even a day on Lake Lanier could serve as a much-needed escape.

Laura Thompson Guest Columnist

If you prefer to stay within city limits, take the opportunity to catch up on the tasks you’ve procrastinated away all semester. Get that desperately needed haircut, service your car or run those errands Mom has been nagging you about. It may be late, but you can finally write those Thank You notes from your birthday last year. For those who have to leave for the summer, pack up your dorm or apartment — or at least start by pulling out the storage bins and cardboard boxes. Don’t overexert yourself, of course — no one said moving out was a race. Or use your Reading Day as an excuse to do

something fun the night before. Plenty of fraternities will be sending the academic year off with a “Reading Day Eve” rager; Saturday in Athens is rivaled only by Reading Day in Athens. Don’t overlook one of your last chances to gather free stuff. Many organizations will hold small events as stress-relievers before finals, and almost all will offer free gear. Bagels, T-shirts and the chance to play with puppies are some of the alluring benefits that accompany these pre-finals festivities. Finally, if all else fails, you can always just read. It may seem cliché, overdone and just plain wrong, It may seem cliché, overdone and just plain wrong, but breezing through your final exams into the promise of summer vacation may just be worth the agony. —Laura Thompson is a freshman from Houston majoring in journalism

t’s the day of the test that accounts for 25 percent of your grade. A few people arrive early to look over notes, while the rest filter in minutes before the test begins. Then a girl walks in, wearing an oversized T-shirt, hair in a messy bun. She throws her things onto her desk and laughs, “Who else isn’t prepared at all for this test?” I look up from my notes, wondering if she walked into the wrong class. The date of the test was on the syllabus, the last day of class was a review and a Google Doc had been sent out over the LISTSERV. To my surprise, other students chime in saying, “I totally forgot about the test until, like, an hour ago,” “I’m so gonna fail this” and, “The professor didn’t even explain this stuff.” Are these the “cool” things to say, or something? When the class looked to me for my contribution, I didn’t know what to say. I studied, and I was ready for the test. That seemed logical enough to me, but they seemed displeased that I was not following along with their “I’m-sounprepared” sentiment. I’ve seen this attitude in a variety of classes, starting in middle school and following into college. I’ve noticed the attitude in all kinds of students, from the kid who skipped most classes and most likely will fail to the apt, highlightednotes kid who always blows tests out of the water. For whatever reason, people still do not want to admit that they listened to lecture, took notes and comprehend the material. I understand the “I-don’t-care” attitude in middle school — the ditzy girls and distracted boys often found their way to the popular table —, but in college? Really? You are paying quite a bit of money for a seat in that class, and you are in college to get a degree. It’s OK to say you are ready for the test or that your paper reads well. At least it ought to be, because if not graduation may not come easily. So I suggest tuning out the group of students sitting behind you exchanging fearful complaints of “I’m so screwed” and “I’m gonna fail” while the professor gives his or her lecture. And when that girl — makeup still on from last night’s bar crawl — announces she is not ready, just say, “Dude, that sucks.” —Allison Skinner is a sophomore from Athens majoring in public and international affairs

Opinion Meter: The week that was

GEORGIA GOES GLOBAL: As of April 18, UGA contributed 60 repositories to the Digital Public Library, the ambitious project that compiles collections of works to be available globally. We should take pride in the project, because we’re an integral contributor that could ultimately take literacy and knowledge worldwide.

THE FINALS COUNTDOWN: As final exams draw near, students batten down the hatches to weather the oncoming deluge of scantrons and flash cards. The MLC will be overcrowded with sleepdeprived patrons ingesting black coffee and a semester’s worth of information. Finals aren’t about success — they’re about survival.

U.S. intervention causes violence


any Americans believe that the U.S.’s role in the Middle East is noble and that socalled “terrorist” organizations target and kill U.S. military and government personnel because of our freedom and democracy. The small problem is that it is not true. I’m here to set the record straight. “Terrorists” target these people because the U.S. meddles in other countries’ politics, starts illegal wars, infiltrates countries without their knowledge and kills foreign civilians. In 1953, the United States overthrew Iran’s most democratic government and restored the shah to power. CIA Agent Kermit Roosevelt and other American agents who were involved ultimately led a mob of people to Mosaddegh’s house, causing him to flee, then later to be arrested for treason. This ended democratic rule in Iran. In 2003, the U.S. started the Iraq War for what seemed to be just causes: a link between Al-Qaeda and Iraq, Saddam Hussein possessing WMDs and the potential origin of the hijackers in Iraq. In later years, it was discovered that there was no link between Iraq and Al-Qaeda, Saddam Hussein possessed no WMDs and none of the hijackers of the Sept. 11 planes originated from Iraq. According to, the number of civilian deaths during the Iraq War was approximately 112,061 to 122,591. The U.S. was not responsible for all of these deaths, but considering that the U.S. entered the country illegally and killed civilians among the insurgents, what the U.S. engaged in was, by its own definition,

terrorism. On May 2, 2011 SEAL Team 6 was deployed into Pakistan to assassinate Osama Bin Laden. They descended upon Abbottabad, infiltrated Bin Laden’s compound and assassinated him. The Pakistani government had no prior knowledge of the planned assassination, and did not appreciate the violation of its sovereignty. Finally, President Obama is using drones in order to target and kill “terrorists,” a method that inspires more “terrorism” than it extinguishes. In June 2004, the CIA used a Predator drone for the first time to engage in a “targeted killing” in Pakistan. The death toll from drone strikes is estimated to be 4,400 people, including two American citizens. American drone strikes are responsible for 411 civilian deaths since the beginning of the program in 2004. I am not arguing that the actions of the “terrorists” are justified. I am saying that the U.S. instigates conflicts, murders innocent civilians and violates the sovereignty of foreign countries, which is what inspires hatred, resentment and militancy against the U.S. — not our freedoms and democracy. —Jeremy Markel is a junior from Dunwoody majoring in communications studies

America – the solution, not the problem


t seems vivid as yesterday, but it was really two weeks ago when pressure cookers filled with ball bearings were detonated at the Boston Marathon. Three were killed and 282 injured in the explosion. The alleged bombers, brothers Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, were submersed in the fanatical deep end of Islam. Dzhokhar says the impetus for his actions was the United States’ Mideast involvement. Chalk another one up for my colleague Jeremy Markel, who in the column above makes an interesting argument about terrorism directed against the United States. Markel does not mention the Boston bombing, but his argument applies. To quote him: “‘Terrorists’ target these people [Americans] because the U.S. meddles in other countries’ politics, starts illegal wars, infiltrates other countries without their knowledge and kills foreign civilians with drones.” He then proceeds into a laundry list of supposed abuses by the U.S. in the Middle East, starting with the 1953 CIA coup to overthrow Iran’s “most democratic government,” under the (tyrannical) rule of Mohammad Mosaddegh. Much more defensible is the notion that the Iraq and Afghanistan wars have led to terrorism against the U.S., although Markel seems to forget why those wars were initiated in the first place: because of a terrorist attack on U.S. soil that killed 2,996 people; before that, because of terrorist attacks against the U.S.S. Cole in Yemen, against the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, against a U.S. installation in Saudi Arabia, against Pan Am

103 in Scotland and so on down the line. It is true, in the most meaningless sense, that terrorism is directed against the U.S. because of its involvement in the world. But implicit in arguments that rest on that banality is a stunning moral equivalency between the U.S. and its enemies. In his column, Markel describes U.S. operations in Iraq as terrorism, a term he does not apply to our

enemies’ actions. The policy end of such a belief is that the U.S. should retreat from the world stage. But it does the world a disservice to pretend that the problem lies in ourselves; that we must genuflect before foreign powers for our actions, which have been in pursuit of freedom, not slavery. If the U.S. were to retreat, the vacuum would inevitably be filled. And by what power? By what better friends of liberty and human dignity than ourselves? —Blake Seitz is the Views Editor of The Red & Black

Catcalls are for the dogs: Verbal harassment perpetuates rape culture


walk up Baxter, rejoicing in warm weather and looking forward to a night at the office. A truck slows as I reach the parking lot. “Damn, girl!” a man shouts before speeding away, his friends’ raucous laughter assaulting my ears. Suddenly, my hands are shaking. I feel sick. I want to shout something back, but he is crossing Milledge by now, and I am too angry for witty retorts. I feel indignant but helpless. Catcalls are not compliments — they are symptoms of rape culture. Rape culture, at its best, tolerates the objectification of women. At its worst, it condones them. And normalizing its symptoms perpetuates the problem. Many a downtown denizen has laughed off his buddy’s advances. “I’m sorry, he’s drunk”

has become a clichéd excuse for the loss of manners many men experience when inebriated. Here’s an idea: if you can’t handle alcohol without becoming an obnoxious misogynist, don’t drink in public. A common assumption is that women only get “holla’d” at when they dress for the attention. Wrong. I’ve been “holla’d” at in sweatpants, jeans, T-shirts and basketball shorts. That’s because catcalling isn’t about a woman “asking for” anything — it’s about a man asserting his socalled dominance by imposing his unwanted

self on unsuspecting passersby. And catcalling doesn’t only happen downtown. Sexual harassers prowl aisles in Kroger, campus sidewalks, even cubicle corrals. They use their voices, their hands and even their eyes to instill feelings of fear, frustration and vulnerability in women. This type of sexual harassment may appear benign, but it provides a glimpse at something more malignant. We as a society must discuss these moments and stop accepting them as inevitabilities of womanhood. Let’s have the conversation that’s already been started on every sidewalk and street corner. —Sarah Anne Perry is a sophomore from Bogart majoring in English

Lauren Garcia finding ‘balance’ through gradual recovery process Emily Schoone @emscho33 After a life-changing incident outside a parking deck in Midtown Atlanta in July 2011, University of Georgia alumna Lauren Garcia is trying to find balance. Garcia was the vic-

Garcia and Tiffany Ferenczy. Garcia was left paralyzed from the waist down and Ferenczy was injured. “For now, it’s kind of plateaued I guess,” Garcia said of everything going on since the shooting. “And not necessarily in a terrible way, but I’m finished with all of my physical therapy that I go to and I’m back in the working world.” The Shepherd Center is where Garcia received her care from July to September 2011. She said that she recently got a membership to the gym after a six-month break from physical therapy to “focus on [her] career and grow in [her] work life.” “But now I’m trying to balance a little more, rather than abandoning one versus the other, and trying to see if I can be all things at once and its definitely a balancing act,” she said. Garcia’s friend Aubrey Chant, a UGA graduate, said getting back to work was a primary goal of Garcia’s during the recovery process. “Work has definitely been a great thing for her to get back into, she was looking forward to getting back to work, she wanted to get back, she kind of feels like she’s on an even playing field when she’s there,” Chant said. “With her injuries, there’s obviously a lot of things that she can’t do the same anymore, but while she’s at work, she can do everything the same there workwise.” Before being

The episode followed her at Bridals by Lori as she tried on wedding dresses. “Yeah it was really interesting to see how those types of shows are developed and produced and what all goes into them behind the scenes,” she said. “I only tried on like three dresses that day and the whole process ended taking like six

Tara Misra works to help rape victims — and warn those potentially in danger of becoming victims. “They talk about what’s called a Red Zone, which suggests that particularly young women are at elevated risks for sexual assault during the first few weeks of school, in part because they’re just getting used to being in a new place and used to being on out on their own without parental supervision,” she said. “That has definitely been identified as a time of particular risk.” Misra works as the relationship and sexual violence prevention coordinator in the Office of Violence Prevention in the University of Georgia’s University Health Center. While she has noticed a trend of elevated rape reports in the fall semester, Misra and the OVP offer services for students looking to learn about prevention or those affected by rape and sexual assault year round. Misra teaches programs about healthy relationships and what consent means. She also provides advocacy services for students who have become rape victims. Often she will talk to professors on behalf of these victimized students to ask for flexibility with assignments. But Misra and the OVP aren't the only resources available to students who consider themselves victims of rape or sexual assault.

icap has changed the way the friends do these activities. “Obviously now we have to have accessible seats and those are harder to get because of the limited quantity, or sometimes the views aren’t as good and we have to be further away from the stage or whatnot,” Chant said. She also said that a trained spinal cord injury specialist has to travel with Garcia if she goes anywhere overnight. Garcia admits that the whole process has been tough, but finding the balance between recovery, married life and her career seems to keep her on her toes. “It’s been good recently but its also been challenging just because now I’m trying to assimilate back into the general population as much as possible.”

hours.” Since the episode aired, Garcia has become somewhat of a minor celebrity in Atlanta, with women of all ages recognizing her and her story from the show and approaching her. One girl even asked to get a picture taken with her but people generally want to express their concern or happiness for her and her husband. “I really feel like I can’t go many places without many people recognizing me and that’s not a bad thing, its just a thing to get used to,” Garcia said. “I feel kind of weird in that situation, but I’m getting used to it and the more time passes, not as many people will remember or realize it.” While Chant and Garcia still enjoy going to concerts, sporting events and travelling together, Garcia’s hand-

Sheppard said that The Cottage has seen an increase in clients whose sexual assaults were associated with “predatory drugs” from August to December in 2012. “Drug facilitated rape is where a drug was involved— a drug could be alcohol— was involved with the sexual assault,” she said. Spring semester historically brings a decrease in the number of rapes and sexual assaults reported on campus. As of press time, two on-campus and two Athens instances sexual assault or rape were reported. This stark of a decrease, however, does not always occur. “We’ve had some high springs, too,” Williamson said. “But they typically occur at the beginning of the semester. The numbers are higher at the beginning of the semester than at the end.” In 2011, the reported rapes in the spring eclipsed reports from the fall or summer – there were four on-campus sex crimes and three off-campus sex crimes between Jan. 1 and April 30, 2011. Williamson said a multitude of factors sometimes hinder the ability to decrease the number of rapes in Athens and on campus. “If you look at my other crime stats in other areas, they’ve gone up, they’ve gone down and we try to do some things with other crimes to limit those numbers. In these situations [involving rape],

there are so many factors that are not in our control or that are harder for us to deal with,” Williamson said. Despite a decrease in overall reported rapes, one more highly publicized assault managed to shake the Athens community. In January, a woman reported that a man had threatened to rape and “cause her bodily harm” in the State Botanical Garden of Georgia. A possible sketch of the suspect was released to the public within the week, urging Athenians to be on the lookout on and off campus. While Williamson and Sheppard said that most unwanted sexual encounters occur between two intoxicated parties who generally know each other, Sheppard said students should always strive to protect themselves against incidents such as the Botanical Garden threats. “Travel in groups, stay in a group of people,” Sheppard advised. “Watch out what you put in your body whether it be drugs or alcohol because that can lower inhibitions and sometimes you can be put in a situation where you’re not sure what’s going on and something could happen to you that you would not want to happen to you if you were sober.” Sheppard said The Cottage hotlines are always available and suggested that any victim of sexual assault seek assistance here. The number for the hotline is 1-877-363 -1912.

of the search for Sumichrast’s replacement at the Terry College should begin after the last of the three finalist candidates, Jack Brittain, visits the campus on May 2. Dorsey said the search may end after Brittain’s presentation, but was unable to pinpoint a time frame in which the provost might make a final decision. Even though Morehead takes over in June, Dorsey said there’s no set deadline for the provost’s decision since the provost can’t “rush this” process. “You want to find the right person for this position,” he said. But Sumichrast said he doesn’t feel as though the three looming holes in upper administration will scare Morehead as he prepares to take over Adams’ role as president of UGA. “A s Provost Morehead becomes president, he’s going to come into that job with a lot of energy and a lot of experience,” Sumichrast said. “I think the opportunity for him to hire new deans who share his vision and have equal amounts of energy to take the University forward can be a very good thing.” As the search for Terry Dean draws to an eventual close, Dorsey said he feels confident about the candidates that have presented so

Alan T. Dorsey has a difficult job. Besides serving as dean of the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Georgia, President-elect and Provost Jere Morehead appointed Dorsey to head a one of the four ongoing search committees for administrative poistions. Dorsey is working to fill the void left by Dean Robert T. Sumichrast of the Terry College of Business. “So, my role is to lead the committee through its search process and its deliberations and do this in conjunction with the search firm we’ve obtained,” Dorsey said. For this particular dean selection, Dorsey said the goal is to find someone with a progressive view on business education — and a knack for fundraising and networking. “I think there’s a very important connection between the Terry College and the business community in Georgia and more specifically in Atlanta,” Dorsey said. “So I think that’s something to think about: how well the dean of the college can work with the business community because one of the things that’s important for the college is to make sure its graduates are well placed.” S u m i c h r a s t announced his decision to step down as Terry’s

SPIA students win $5,000 at national policy challenge By Kelly Whitmire @kellywhitmire A team of doctoral students from the School of Public and International Affairs made it to the semifinals of the National Invitational Public Policy Challenge at the University of Pennsylvania by creating Piecing Assistance Together for Charitable Helpers. A “social networking site for nonprofits” would allow nonprofits, donors and volunteers to find information about similar organizations. “The idea is that nonprofits, donors and volunteers create a user page,” team member Justin Bullock said. “Nonprofits could upload their hours, their location and different services they provide. Donors and volunteers create a profile where the can opt in messages from broad services categories.” Bullock and teammates Danielle Atkins and Grace Bagwell won $5,000 for research for their website. The team made it to the invitation-only tournament’s semifinal round along with students from the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Chicago and New York University. “It was really exciting. We were the only public school that made it to the semi-finals so that was kind of rewarding and exciting,” Bullock said. “We have a very highly ranked public policy school, but it’s not as nationally ranked

Bagwell said the project could be successful in Athens because of the high rate of poverty and numerous nonprofits. “We knew that there is not a mechanism currently for connecting

those people together and those organizations together, which is, I think, really a critical need in Athens because we do have such high poverty. I mean, Athens has the highest poverty rate in the nation for a county its size,” Bagwell said. “And we also have an extraordinary amount of nonprofit organizations.” The team is looking for funding for the project and launched a Kickstarter page. Kickstarter is “the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects,” according to its website. Bagwell said the project has a few steps before it is operational, but the group hopes to have a pilot launched by the end of the summer. “We’re completely planning on carrying this forward. We have a few partners already that have committed to making that happen, and we are currently in the stage of talking to some web developers,” she said. “Also, [we’re] making decisions about organizational structure, so how we’re going to carry this project forward ... Our goal is to have the web development done by the end of the summer and then hopefully pilot the system with a small number of organizations and community members.”

Sterilized dogs live longer, UGA research shows Jeanette Kazmierczak @sciencekaz Not spaying or neutering your pets may contribute not only to overpopulation problems but also a shorter lifespan for your pet, as shown in a new study from the University of Georgia. Researchers in the Department of Genetics and the College of Veterinary Medicine have found that, on average, sterilized dogs live longer than nonstterilized, or intact, dogs. They also found that sterilized dogs are more likely to die of cancer or autoimmune disease and intact dogs of trauma or infectious disease. “There is a long research tradition into this question of the costs of reproduction and it has been shown in a diverse array of species, those animals that reproduce live shorter than those animals that don’t,” said Kate Creevy, an assistant professor of internal medicine in the College of Veterinary Medicine. For 13 percent of sterilized males and 26 percent of sterilized females, their life span was one to two years longer, she said. The average age for sterilized dogs was 9.4 years and 7.9 for intact dogs. The data the team used came from the Veterinary Medical Database, which Creevy said was established in the 1960s by the National Cancer Institute. “If a patient comes into a veterinary teaching hospital it gets a medical record just like you get when you go to the doctor, and periodically the veterinary teaching hospitals in North America – so the U.S. and Canada — take what’s called an abstract of the medical record and send it to the [Veterinary Medical Database],” she said. “So it includes a very concise snapshot of the patient’s species, age, gender, where it was seen in the country, what kinds of tests it had performed and what its diagnoses were.” There are some factors to keep in mind since the data comes from teaching hospitals, Creevy said. “The overall lifespan is probably artificially

shortened by virtue of the fact that these dogs were seen at referral hospitals but the comparison between males and females and sterilized and intact should be the same,” she said. Researchers also had no way of knowing if the intact dogs had ever had puppies, which was a factor of maternal risk. Studies on the effects of sterilization have been done in other research models like nematode worms, flies and mice, Creevy said, but it’s much harder to tell what those species die of. She said Daniel Promislow, a genetics professor and her collaborator, realized dogs would make a good study because there is a system of highly advanced medical care in place for pets that kept detailed records of age and cause of death. Jessica Hoffman, a Ph.D. student in genetics, works in Promislow’s lab and said she did most of the statistical analysis of the data. She said even though cancer was often a late onset disease, there was a marked trend in sterilized dogs even when they were younger. “The rates of cancer in both groups go up with age, however you see the increase in deaths in sterilized dogs compared to intact dogs at every age group,” Hoffman said. “So, even in the dogs that are only one to two years old if they died at the age of one to two and they were sterilized they were more likely to die of cancer.” Angela Seal, a sophomore pre-journalism major from Peachtree City, said she had never had a dog, but if she did she would get them fixed. She also said the study’s results surprised her. “It does surprise me a little bit, you would think it would be the opposite just because it would be more natural and whatnot,” she said. Creevy said she hopes that eventually this data will help veterinarians identify the optimal age to sterilize dogs. “Autoimmune diseases are harder to understand why that should be associated with being sterilized or being reproductively intact,” she said. “The one

UGA researchers found that sterilized dogs live 1.5 years longer than non-sterilized dogs. Erin o. smith/Staff theory that we have is that two of the major sex hormones — testosterone and progesterone — are somewhat immunosuppressive, so they tend to have the effect of dampening the immune response.” Hoffman cautioned that owners understand that just because they get their dog sterilized does not necessarily mean they’ll live longer. “So it’s a population average,” Hoffman said. “It can’t determine specifically for your dog what will happen but hopefully what it may begin to do is if your dog is spayed or neutered you can be looking out for these types of diseases more often.” The next step is to look at the differences in lifespan in sterilized versus intact dogs in private practices to get a more accurate sample of healthier dogs. She said it is important for owners to make a personal decision, but she hoped they would also consider larger population problems.

Glycans, or complex sugars, are a bit like Pixy Stix — if you have one, you’ll find remnants of it everywhere. “In the 3.5 billion years of evolution... there is no living cell that hasn’t surrounded its cell surface with glycans,” said Robert Lance Wells, associate professor of biochemistry and molecular biology and an adjunct professor of chemistry. At the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center at the University of Georgia, researchers are working to identify how glycans affect dayto-day operations of cells and the diseases that result when the system goes wrong in glycomics — the study of glycans and their structure and function in cells, tissues and organisms. After they are made, many proteins are altered by the addition of sugars, which increases their functional diversity. J. Michael

“Hawkeye” Pierce, a distinguished research professor of biochemistry and molecular biology and director of the UGA Cancer Center, is the principal investigator for the National Center for Biomedical Glycomics which is dedicated to developing technologies for glycomic analyses. “We are really just now having the tools ... to really understand how complex carbohydrates or glycans are causing or are products of disorders and diseases,” Pierce STEET said. Part of his research involves using pluripotent stem cells, adult stem cells that are reprogrammed to mimic embryonic stem cells, to understand how glycans help determine how stem cells differentiate into different types of cells. “[We] applied for [our first] grant to look at embryonic stem cell differentiation and to try to understand first how the glycans change

and then ... what controls the glycan changes,” Pierce said. “In other words, how is this coordinated because we really have a very fragmented picture of how glycan biosynthesis is regulated.” As part of his cancer research, Pierce also looks at how glycans can act as markers for certain cancers. “We’re looking to make a potential vaccine. It turns out the antibody binds to a unique glycan on the cancer cells that’s never been seen in humans before and so the antibody is kind of like the bulldog,” Pierce said. “Basically inject somebody with this antibody and the antibody will go to the cancer and kill the cancer cells and not touch the non-cancer cell.” Pierce said one of the reasons glycomics is now coming into focus is because of technological advancements, but UGA started the Complex Carbohydrate

Research Center in 1985. Pierce also said neither the state nor UGA gives the center money for infrastructure, and tenured faculty get the same nine-month pay as other professors in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences. Grant money pays for supplies, staff and one month of summer pay for the professor. Richard Steet, an assistant professor of biochemistry and molecular biology, is working to understand how glycans are involved in the transition between initial genetic defects and physical symptoms. “There’s sort of a dual value in understanding this process. One is, the more you understand about the disease, the more opportunities you have to treat it. So you don’t have to correct that initial genetic defect. You may find other areas, other parts of the pathways, where you can intervene therapeutically,” Steet said. “And the other side of it is we learn something about the basic biology of the cell by studying these diseases in detail.” One of the genetic disorders Steet works on is I-cell disease, or mucolipidosis II, which is usually fatal in early childhood. Symptoms include thickened skin, coarse facial features and orthopedic problems like clubfoot, deformed long bones and hip dislocation. The genetic mutation that causes I-cell disease leads to an enzyme deficiency. The enzyme in question adds a sugar tab onto a lysosomal enzyme which would allow it to target the lysosome. Because it doesn’t have the sugar tab, it gets misrouted and winds up outside the cell. Steet and his team are working to develop a drug which would correct symptoms by stopping the lysosomal enzymes from working outside the cell. “We’ve found a way that you could potentially treat children with an inhibitor of [the enzyme] and that might be a way to make their symptoms better,” Steet said.

The Red & Black

In Memoriam: UGA faculty, staff and students Editor's Note: The University of Georgia will hold Georgia Remembers to recognize community members who passed away since April 2012 on the Chapel stairs in a candlelight service Tuesday at 7 p.m. ­—Staff reports

Douglas Keith Hamm worked as an animal caretaker at the University of Georgia’s College of Veterinary Medicine for more than 20 years. He passed away on July 10, 2012 at the age of 51. Hamm worked in the school’s washroom and cleaned cages and other instruments used by the school. Lab Animal Facilities Supervisor Missy Waters said Hamm was a complimentary man that enjoyed watching television shows in his spare time. “He was kind of a quiet guy, but he loved his TV shows,” Waters said. “He watched a lot of shows and loved talking about the different shows."

Evan Andrew Lilly, 33, passed away on Nov. 9, 2012 after being struck by a car. Lilly was helping another car that had broken down on the state Route 10 Loop in the travel lane. He worked at UGA’s Enterprise Information Technology Services at the College of Veterinary Medicine. “It quickly became apparent that Evan was very good at what he did, and handled all his many responsibilities with great care and good humor,” said his friends at the Poultry Diagnostic and Research Center in an email to The Red & Black.

Dianne H. Crutchfield, a building services worker at the 4-H Youth Development and the University of Georgia Youth-Cooperative Extension Service, passed away March 10 after an extended illness. She worked for Rock Eagle for 22 years until her “health began to fall,” according to an article written by The Eatonton Messenger. Crutchfield passed away at her residence in Eatonton.

Ted Dyer from Rising Fawn died at the age of 52 on September 25, 2012, saying goodbye to his wife Carla Dyer and his two sons Jeremy and Brett Dyer,” according to his obituary. Dyer served for more than 20 years as the Cooperative County Extension Agent/Coordinator in Dade and Floyd counties for UGA. His most recent position was at the Department of Animal and Dairy Science as extension animal scientist in Calhoun. Dyer also served extensively in the Georgia 4-H program. It was through this that he was able to affect the lives of young people in Georgia and exemplify leadership qualities essential to success.

David Neal Symons, a doctorate student in music education at the Hugh Hodgson School of Music at the University of Georgia. He was a certified music therapist and worked with children with special needs in the Fulton County Schools Music Therapy Department. Those who knew David described him as energetic, talented and caring. He was a talented vocalist, trumpet player and guitarist. Friends said David touched the lives of the students he worked with. His parents described him as a person who saw past a child’s disabilities and made them shine. He passed away Jan. 18 with his family by his side.

Alexandra Rose Misner was a junior mass media arts major from Alpharetta, who expressed herself through her personal website, which shares photos and Misner’s interests. Misner was a fan of Tina Fey, Arrested Development and spending time at the Rooftop at the Georgia Theatre. She also had a love for music and once attended Bonnaroo. “It was unlike anything I’ve ever done, and an experience I recommend for anyone,” Misner wrote on her WordPress. Misner was 20 years old when she passed away on April 27, 2012.

Anna Elizabeth Walls, a freshman pre-journalism major from Johns Creek, passed away on Nov. 15, 2012 at the age of 18. Anna was an avid UGA fan who loved her time as a student, attending football games and spending time with her friends in Myers Hall. She suffered from cystic fibrosis, a chronic condition that affected her lungs, but did not let it stop her from soaking up life at UGA. “She recognized the difficulties that she had, and she had a dream and she went for it,” said Kaly Royster, a freshman special education major from Stone Mountain and friend of Anna’s. Anna was known to form fast friendships.

Joseph Frederick Kessie, a junior biological science major from Ty Ty, died March 25 driving off a road in his hometown and striking a tree. Kessie was the only person in the vehicle at the time of the accident. Upon the conclusion of his memorial service on April 13, Kessie’s body was transported to Ghana for his burial. “With deepest sympathy to the Kessie family during your time of grief ... God is for you a refuge and strength, A help that is there to be found during difficult times ... May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead,” wrote a guest in Kessie’s online guest book.

University of Georgia and its Disability Resource Center felt the toll after losing a dear colleague in Specialist Dale C. Gibson. Gibson, who passed away on March 14, specialized with students who were deaf or hard of hearing. He will be remembered as someone who took time for every student. “He had a tremendous impact. He made students feel listened to and he was always willing to sit down and listen to them,” said Diane Shimkets, assistant director at the Disability Resource Center. Gibson will be missed.

Described as a “gentleman and a scholar” on his Twitter page, Quinton Million Ayers, a junior sports management major from Adairsville, passed away on Sept. 3, 2012 as the result of a car crash on GA-316 near Harbins Road. Ayers, son of James and Sheridan Ayers, is still in the thoughts of many of his friends and family members on Facebook. “Mentally you're still there in each and every one of ours hearts and minds,” said one of Ayers’ friends on Facebook. ”It’s amazing what an impact you had on all the people you knew through out your entire life.”

Byron L. Candole, a laboratory manager in plant pathology in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, passed away April 8, 2012. Candole, a resident of Flowery Branch, worked at the University of Georgia’s Tifton campus in the Coastal Plain Experiment Station on such research as the effect of fungicides on fungi attacking yellow nutsedge.

Those miserable days when you’re drenched with rainwater while scrolling through a weather forecast that tells of clear sunny skies can come to an end with the AthensGaWeather blog. Originally a Twitter account of the same name, AthensGaWeather is a fully developed weather blog that provides thorough, local forecasts for Athens and Northeast Georgia. “We lay it down pretty simply so that everyone can understand and prepare for what’s happening tomorrow,” creator of AthensGaWeather and graduate of the University of Georgia Matt Daniel said. The blog provides daily updates for the overall forecast of Athens. It includes a variety of features, such as highs and lows, precipitation forecasts, radar images, UStream Live coverage, weekly forecasts and daily video clips. “Our forecasts are based off of a number of different weather models,” Daniel said. “There are weather models on many websites, but how you interpret them is what makes you a forecaster. If models were perfect, we wouldn’t need meteorologists.” The blog and Twitter account also provide warnings for severe weather. In past severe weather situations, specifically tornados, Daniel posted live updates about the threatening weather in Athens. “I stayed up until 4 in the morning

during recent tornado warnings giving people updates to make them less alarmed,” Daniel said. “Narrowing weather alerts down to particular parts of Athens is very helpful.” Daniel has also worked on WeatherGlobe — an online blog that deals with weather events around the world. Daniel began publishing WeatherGlobe as a result of the success of AthensGaWeather. The blog is published on EarthSky, an organization created to educate people around the world about research that could lead to better sustainability for the future. Daniel’s partner, Jared Rackley, said he hopes to make advancements on the blog in the near future that will increase its efficiency and accountability. Rackley said he plans to continue bettering AthensGaWeather. “I’m planning to change the format of the blog and add watches and warnings, up to date observations, current temperature and winds and easier navigation,” Rackley said. Erica Pauley said she would use a weather blog that forecasted Athens’ weather. “I think a weather blog that specifically covers Athens would be incredibly helpful,” the sophomore from Newnan said. “It’s always such a pain to watch the weather channel and prepare for the forecasted weather, then encounter a downpour at the bus stop without an umbrella.”

UGA helps digitize history for Americans Lauren McDonald The Red & Black The University of Georgia took part in the launch of a prototype of the Digital Public Library of America on April 18. The DPLA is an expansive online digital library that brings together the archives of different libraries and institutions for the American public to access. Over the course of the last two years, public and research librarians, authors, publishers and educators have been working together to create this DPLA prototype. The prototype includes books, images, historic records and audiovisual materials to anyone with an Internet connection. Sheila McAlister, associate director of the Digital Library of Georgia, said that it has been a collaborative effort. She said that since the launch, the Digital Public Library of America has gotten a positive response. “There have been all these groups who are experts in their fields who’ve been getting together and [envisioning] what it would look like, and so the prototype has come out of this [envisioning] process,” McAlister said. The Digital Library of Georgia, an initiative of GALILEO based out of the University of Georgia Libraries, serves as one of the seven regional hubs of the DPLA. The other six hubs are based in Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oregon, South Carolina and Utah. The launch of the DPLA has made materials from more than 60 libraries in Georgia available to the public. Brian Dyson, a history major from Waycross, has been working on projects for the Digital Library of Georgia for almost a year and a half. “It makes Southern history and southern culture — through documents, pictures and diaries — a lot more personal,” Dyson said. He also said the prototype brings a more personal experience to history. “It’s not you reading it in a history book. It’s reading what somebody wrote as they were taking a break from fighting the Civil War,” Dyson said. “You get to see a side of things that you wouldn’t otherwise see. It’s the closest you can get without actually having it in your hands.” Content in the Digital Public Library of America includes the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s photo collection, a film strip of what could possibly be Georgia’s first moving image of baseball filmed and “A View of Savanah [sic] as it Stood the 29th of

The Knight Foundation and the Arcadia Fund have been major financial supporters of this project — donating $350,000 to the Digital Library of Georgia to help fund the web and storage costs and cost for converting materials for the DPLA, according to a previous Red & Black article. “One of the great things about libraries is they not only have a treasure trove of information, but they also have all these documents that represent our history and the place we call home,” said Beverly Blake, Macon director for the Knight Foundation, in the previous Red & Black article. “The fact that we would be able to digitize it, put it online and make it accessible to anyone at no cost was a great interest to the Knight Foundation.” Toby Graham, UGA’s deputy university librarian and director of the Digital Library of Georgia, said Georgia has been well represented in the launch. “The Digital Public Library of America wants to bring to the American public as much of the American life, history and culture as it possibly can and as much of the libraries’ content to the public as it possibly can,” Graham said. “The service hub in Georgia is an important first step in doing that.”

Gamma Chis selected, begin separation from letters By Marena Gallucio @MarenaGallucio The Gamma Chis for this year’s fall Panhellenic recruitment at the University of Georgia were named in January. Gamma Chis are the girls who are a part of different sororities’ chapters at UGA, but they step away from their letters during recruitment in order to help girls who are a part of the six-day recruitment process. This process includes visiting different sorority houses and meeting Greek members from each organization. Being a Gamma Chi is challenging because of the “long process,” said Claudia Shamp, the associate dean and director of Greek Life. This school year, Shamp said the selection process lasted from October or November to around January or February. “They have to fill out an application. Then, we have an interview process for all of our applicants,” she said. “There is a second selection after all people are interviewed, and they have another interview, which then the selection is posted after that second interview.” Shamp said the main question asked for prospective Gamma Chis is to convey why they want to be a part of the selection process. “It is similar to a position as a camp counselor, basically,” Shamp said. “It is not an easy job, and there is a lot of sacrifice.” Shamp said Gamma Chi interviewers also look at the applicants’ abilities to communicate, pose scenarios as part of the interview and ask why the prospects believe they would be the best as a Gamma Chi. For the approxi-

mately 80 spots, applicants for Gamma Chi usually range in the hundreds. “It is not uncommon for us to have more than 200 applicants for anywhere between 80 to 88 spots,” Shamp said. After the girls are chosen, the Gamma Chis go through a process of training and disassociate themselves from their sorority. Gamma Chis are not allowed to have any affiliation to their own sorority during the process. This includes not being able to adorn their sorority letters on their shirt or their car, and there can be no trace of their affiliation to their sorority on any social media. “It is ... important that these women are seen as unbiased as they help people through the recruitment process, and so we try to begin them to have to disaffiliate and take the mindset that obviously everybody loves their sorority, but [also] take the mindset of [loving] Panhellenic as a whole as opposed to your individual group,” Shamp said. Some of the training includes team building and listening skills to the “mechanics” of knowing how to fill out forms, Shamp said. Gamma Chis also have to be able to hear the pros and cons, which could be hurtful for them with being a part of a sorority. At the start of the fall semester, the Gamma Chis are ready to lead their groups and have different jobs such as staying in the Greek Life Office, riding the buses, going with groups between sororities, and some staying at sorority houses, Shamp said. These roles rotate over the week of recruitment.

Maria Smith, a sophomore communication sciences and disorders major from Johns Creek, is one of the girls chosen to be a Gamma Chi for this coming fall’s recruitment. “Our job is to be there for them during the recruitment process, give them a nonbiased opinion, help them out with their week and be there for them,” she said. Each Gamma Chi gets about 15 Potential New Members who they help throughout the process, Smith said. “This whole semester, we had one meeting each month, and our first meeting in February was a Gamma Chi retreat,” she said. “Each month after that, we had a meeting. We mainly learn our duties as a Gamma Chi and how to do our jobs.” Smith said she was very excited to continue the tradition and be a Gamma Chi this fall — as her Gamma Chi group helped her through the entire recruitment process. “I just can’t wait to meet all of the PNMs and really just be there for them during the recruitment process because when I was going through the recruitment process it was really fun, really tiring and really stressful, but my Gamma Chi was awesome,” Smith said. But Smith said she believed that the relationship goes further than the rush process. “[My Gamma Chi] was there for me and I knew I could count on all of them and I want to do that for the girls that are coming in,” Smith said. “[I want to] be there for them for whatever they need — not only for recruitment, but also at UGA.”

CHURNING OUT CHAMPIONS Tennis programs reach new heights BY PRESTON SMITH | @prestonsmithjr




Georgia has always been good, even on the national stage, but lately the tennis teams have reached a whole new level of success. The Georgia men’s tennis team is coming off a sweep of the SEC regular season and tournament titles this season, and will carry a No. 3 national ranking into the NCAA tournament. The women’s team is also No. 3 nationally, won a share of the SEC regular season title and made it to the SEC tournament final before falling to No. 1 Florida. And then there is the Bulldogs’ club tennis team, which captured the USTA Tennis On Campus National Championship on April 13 over rival Florida, 26-24. Needless to say, the Bulldogs are living up to their legacy at the top of the collegiate tennis world. “The experience of winning the club tennis national championship is one of the greatest moments of my life,” Scott Slezak, captain of the club tennis team said. “I never could have had that at another school, whether that be playing varsity tennis at Gustavus [Adolphus College] or club anywhere else.” Slezak, a Nebraska native who will graduate in May, had the opportunity to play at both the Division II and Division III level, most notably at Gustavus Adolphus College, but chose to come to Athens for a combination of reasons. “Although playing tennis at Gustavus would have been incredible, I felt that club tennis would still be a great option for me,” Slezak said. “The rest of my criteria, from academics, to social life, to location, all favored UGA over Gustavus by far. Also, as such a huge tennis fan, I had always heard that Athens, Ga., was the greatest place in the country for college tennis.”

Trippi a lasting symbol of UGA athletic pride BY ALEC SHIRKEY @AShirkey

Head coach David Perno, now in the final year of his contract, is 133-144 since signing an extension in 2008. The Diamond Dogs are 16-27 this year. Erin o. smith/Staff

Amid Diamond Dogs’ struggles, Perno’s future as coach in doubt BY CY BROWN @CEPBrown In 2008, the University of Georgia was near the top of the college baseball world under the leadership of head coach David Perno, an up-and-coming coach with a patient, cool demeanor. The team went to the College World Series three times since Perno was hired in 2002, with appearances in 2004, 2006 and 2008, when it finished runner-up to Fresno State. Perno won Baseball America’s national Coach of the Year in 2004. After the 2008 season, Perno was rewarded with a five-year contract extension and a raise of $47,750, giving

him a base-salary of $200,000, by then Director of Athletics Damon Evans. Fast-forward five years and the Georgia baseball team is wide off the mark of where many expected it to be when Perno signed that extension. Since Perno signed his contract extension in 2008, Georgia is 133-144. The team is 16-27 this season, last place in the SEC and in danger of missing the SEC Tournament. In the current landscape of college athletics, coaches are under pressure to produce winners every season and athletic directors are under pressure to get rid of those coaches who can’t. See PERNO, Page 17

In the wake of this year’s NFL Draft, the man who was taken first overall in 1945 marvels at the fanfare and pageantry his game has adopted over the years. Hall of Fame halfback Charley Trippi, now 91 years old, remembers the days when players wore leather helmets, $500 was good pay and the draft was little more than a sidebar in American sports. “It’s more glamorous now than when I was drafted. It was just an ordinary thing back then. Of course, that was 50, 60 years ago,” Trippi said. “They really dress it up now. It’s a big event. Of course, it’s going to be on television, going to have a big audience. It’s going to be great.” But before attaining all of the national recognition and success that came with his career in pro football, Trippi was a two-time All-American selection for Georgia’s football team and an integral part in the school’s heralded 1942 season. Playing under legendary head coach Wally Butts, Trippi and Heisman winner Frank Sinkwich guided Georgia to an 11-1 season, after which the Bulldogs were named consensus national champions. “It was a big event because that’s why you want to play football, to win the championship,” Trippi said.

Trippi would earn the prestigious No. 1 selection three years later after his college career was put on hold by World War II. Though conscripted into the Air Force, he was never sent overseas. Then in a move that would likely confuse a number of today’s modern players, he deferred his No. 1 draft selection, opting to return to Georgia and complete his college degree. TRIPPI “When I was drafted, I didn’t immediately go into pro football. I came [back] to Georgia to finish up. I wanted to get a college degree, number one. Number two, I wanted to make All-American. Number three, I wanted to be in a position when I left Georgia to give my family a good standard of living,” Trippi said. “Of course by waiting, I became a better ball player, and I feel like I made the right move.” Eighty juniors and sophomores declared for the NFL Draft this year. In doing so, some players reach the goal of an NFL pay day more quickly. But others, such as former Bulldog Kwame Geathers who declared early and went undrafted, make the decision too hastily.

The Red & Black

PERNO: Difficult to judge apart from team’s historical success ➤ From Page 15 Not feeling pressure With a year left on his contract, which was extended for one season in 2011 by current Director of Athletics Greg McGarity, many believe Perno’s job may be in jeopardy. But even with this season’s struggles, he doesn’t feel any pressure. “I don’t know if there’s pressure. You put enough pressure on yourself to [win],” Perno said. “You just try to get the most out of them. You can’t show them panic or pressure or a feeling or anything of that nature. You just try and coach them and develop them and make them better men.” Perno’s outlook on his team’s struggles may put him in good standing with McGarity, who said he pays attention to how coaches respond to adversity, not the fact that they endure it, when deciding to keep a coach or not. “I think every team, at some point in time, experiences a frustration at the level of difficulty,” McGarity said. “I think you look at how the coaches react to those situations and how the student athletes react to those situations.” One example McGarity gave was the football team in 2010, which finished 6-7. He never wavered on head coach Mark Richt, who has led Georgia to consecutive SEC Championship Games in the past two seasons. “You saw a work ethic by coach Richt and his staff,” McGarity said. “They stayed true to the task. They didn’t panic and the results are in the record, so to speak.” McGarity also spoke of the resiliency of this season’s men’s basketball team, which finished 15-17 after starting the season 3-6. “I think everybody wishes to do better, but it’s a situation where they righted the ship, they ended up playing a lot better and the record speaks for itself,” McGarity said. To each its own McGarity will review a number of “factors” when deciding whether to retain Perno. The first “factor” listed in Perno’s contract is “the Team’s regular season and postseason success.” According to McGarity, “success” in each sport is subjective to the sport’s history at Georgia and each sport “stands on its own.” Suzanne Yoculan, former Georgia gymnastics coach, won 10 national championships as coach before retiring in 2009. Jay Clark was hired as her replacement, but resigned in 2012 after not making the Super Six. “Gymnastics was one sport where a level of excellence was set up,” McGarity said. “Georgia gymnastics was the premier gymnastics program in the country due to the work of Suzanne Yoculan. The bar is set so high for that program, why should we not be in the final leg of competition.” On the other side of the coin is the volleyball team, which has struggled historically and doesn’t have the same resources as more established sports. “If you’ve ever been in their building, there aren’t too many banners recognizing significant achievement in volleyball,” McGarity said. “Now we have a coach [Lizzy Stemke] there who is, I think, one of the finest coaches in the country in the very early infancy into her head coaching career. She’s had to make tremendous strides just to make volleyball relevant on this

Perno consults with freshman pitcher Sean McLaughlin and second baseman Nelson Ward. Ward said he has faith in his coach. ERIN O. SMITH/Staff campus. For her to recruit the elite athlete in volleyball is a lot different than our swimming program, which has national championship banners and SEC championship banners throughout that facility.” When it comes to the success of the baseball program, Perno has been integral in all aspects, and it may be difficult to judge him apart from its history. He has led the school to half of its College World Series appearances, and his six overall postseason appearances are the most by any coach in school history. He also helped Georgia win its only baseball national championship as a player on the 1990 team. Expensive endeavor The lack of recent success by the baseball team is troubling when considering the number of resources devoted to it by the Athletic Department. Baseball had the fifth-highest total expenses at UGA in 2012 with $2,217,509 spent, according to the Equity in Athletics Data Analysis. Football had the most expenses, at more than $22 million, while men’s and women’s basketball and gymnastics were also more expensive than baseball. Surprisingly, baseball was seventh in total revenue in 2012 with $496,364. Football is the Athletic Department’s bread-winner, bringing in more than $77 million in 2012. Men’s and women’s basketball, gymnastics and mens’ and women’s track and field/ cross country also all brought in more money than baseball. The $1.7 million dollar gap between the baseball program’s revenues and expenses won’t be made up by selling out more games,

but a more competitive team would surely increase revenue However, baseball is not considered a “revenue” sport, such as football or men’s basketball, which both bring in more than it spends, so it is unlikely finances will have much of an effect on any decision by McGarity. “Our 15 head coaches here are viewed as very important assets to our department and I don’t rate some more than others,” McGarity said. “I view them as 15 peers who each require the same amount of attention.” Another “factor” in Perno’s contract is “fan attendance,” which has declined at Foley Field this season. In 2009, the season following Georgia’s last appearance in the College World Series, Georgia set attendance records, averaging 2,917 fans per game. That number decreased by 9 percent in 2010, a season in which Georgia finished with a 16-37 record, and then another 14 percent in 2011. In 2012, attendance was up 21 percent over 2011. Twenty-eight home games into the 2013 season, attendance is down 32 percent from 2012 and 36 percent from 2009. McGarity sees the lack of attendance more as a sign of the times, rather than an indictment on the baseball team. “Everybody wants attendance numbers to be up,” McGarity said. “I think in the sports world in general, research will show that attendance is down in all sports, even when you’re winning. You see that in college football right now. Certainly, attendance is something that you look at, but it’s not the determining factor in decisions that you make.” The Diamond Dogs’ recent struggles also come with a large help-

ing of bad luck. In October 2009, Chance Veazey, then a freshman shortstop and potential future starter, was paralyzed after being hit by a car while riding his scooter on Lumpkin Street. The next season, outfielder and leadoff hitter Johnathan Taylor was paralyzed after an on-field collision with teammate Zach Cone. In back-to-back seasons, Georgia lost two of its most important players not to sports injuries, but to serious medical traumas. The effect that can have on any program, in any sport, is unimaginable. Georgia has 12 SEC games remaining this season and it will do wonders for Perno’s job security if the Diamond Dogs win a majority of those games and make it to the SEC Tournament. Perno said he “tries not to” think about his job security and is only focusing on improving his team. “I can’t control it,” Perno said. “What I can control is trying to make these guys better and obviously I haven’t done a good job of it. That’s the frustrating thing. If I can’t get them better, that’s my job.” Although all fans may not be on board with Perno at this point, his players are behind him. “I love Coach Perno,” sophomore second baseman Nelson Ward said. “He’s given us all the opportunities we could ask for. We’ve got to start playing bet-

ter. When we’re not playing good it’s not the coaches fault.” Senior third baseman Curt Powell shared Ward’s sentiment and places the blame on the players for the team’s performance this season. “Coach Perno is a great coach,” Powell

said. “We want to have some more wins, but coach is doing everything he can. You can’t put the blame on him. We’ve got to go out there and perform.”

Georgia defense to improve in 2013 Georgia’s defense will be better in 2013. On a weekend that has seen the likes of Jarvis Jones, Alec Ogletree, John Jenkins and Shawn Williams advance to the next stage of their careers, this can appear to be a mind-boggling supposition.

game and ranked fourth among SEC teams in pass defense, allowing just 2,255 total yards in the air. However, the Bulldogs did have their rough patches. The defense also allowed 351.2 yards per game. This number was more than 100 more than Alabama allowed per game last year and, while ranking sixth in the SEC, was more yards per game allowed than the 9-4 Vanderbilt Commodores. They also struggled mightily against the run, allowing 2,311 yards on the ground last season, ranking next-to-last in the SEC above only Auburn, which did not win a game in SEC play. This poor performance culminated against Alabama in the SEC Championship game, in which the Crimson Tide backfield duo of T.J. Yeldon and Eddie Lacy ran for 334 yards. What may have been more troubling for the Bulldogs is that the tandem carried the ball 45 times, so it’s not like anyone was surprised when Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron handed the ball off. Statistically speaking, Georgia’s defense was average. However, public perception had Georgia’s defense among the elite, and for a valid reason. From front to back, Georgia’s defense was laden with NFL-ready talent. Jenkins, Jones, Ogletree, Sanders Commings, Baccari Rambo, Cornelius Washington and Williams were all drafted over the weekend. This season Georgia’s defense will have to play as a unit because it doesn’t have the same big names that it had last year, which has the potential to benefit defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. So far, the Bulldogs returning players have noticed the difference just from spring practice. “After the first couple days, once we put on pads, the first scrimmage, it’s like ‘We’ve got something,’” cornerback Damian Swann said. “By that point, I had realized we were pretty good.” —Cody Pace is a freshman pre-journalism major from Adairsville

TRIPPI: Players who declare early for the draft risk damaging their careers ➤ From Page 15 Trippi chose to wait because he sees the inherent risk in such a high-stakes decision. “Sometimes you go ahead of your career. You’re not really ready,” he said. “I saw a lot of football players over the years. They skip their senior year to get drafted and then they can’t make the team, and then they’re lost. They lose playing pro and college. So it’s a hell of a decision to make.” The decision turned out well for Trippi, who won the Maxwell Award in 1946 before signing a thenlucrative four-year contract worth $100,000 with the Chicago Cardinals. Success was quick to find him there as well, and he soon became a featured weapon in the team’s “million dollar backfield.” As a rookie, he helped the Cardinals capture the 1947 NFL Championship in the team’s famous 28-21 win over the Eagles. Trippi scored two touchdowns in the game, including one on a 75-yard punt return. “The game we played in Chicago, we played on a frozen field. We couldn’t wear football cleats. We played in tennis shoes,” Trippi said. “That’s the only time in my whole career I scored with tennis shoes on. And the wind chill factor was 20 below zero.” Ten years later, Trippi retired with a Hall of Fame career under his belt and began his time as a coach. He spent five years apiece coaching for Georgia and the Cardinals. “I was a backfield coach. It was fascinating, I enjoyed watching young kids develop. You get a lot of pleasure out of that. Then over the years you see them again and they remind you of when they were playing,” Trippi said. “Then I devoted a lot of time to real estate. If I was smart, I would’ve

eliminated the coaching part of my career because there was more money to be made in real estate [than] coaching.” Trippi now owns several commercial properties in the Athens area, including ones leased by Arby’s and State Farm. He and his wife Margaret reside in Athens and remain active in both the community and in Georgia athletics. “We’ve done nothing but UGA this entire month,” Margaret Trippi said. “We watched [the Diamond Dogs] play Vanderbilt Saturday. [Charley] lettered in baseball too, so we go to all the lettermen things. Baseball, football, anything else.” Though not a wellknown fact, Trippi played baseball for Georgia and actually tied the fourth-highest batting mark in SEC history with a .464 average. He also played one season of minor league baseball with the Atlanta Crackers, hitting .334 in 106 games. “When I left Georgia, I played professionally for the Atlanta Crackers. And from there I went to football. I was very active,” Trippi said. Of course, Trippi is no longer the do-it-all athlete he was in his younger days. But the spirit of Athens makes it hard for him to stay away from sports altogether. “Athens is a different community during the football season. Everybody’s in high gear, ready to go,” he said. “We are definitely involved. [AD] Greg [McGarity] always invites us to sit with him in the press box. We look forward to the football games.” Still living in such close proximity to the high-octane beginnings of his athletic career, Trippi has seen the University transform into a sprawling institution since his days as a student. “It’s a lot bigger now. We had more campus life back when I

first came here because there weren’t that many students. We got to mingle with the students a lot more than [athletes] do now. They’re all independent now,” he said. “We used to get 10 dollars a month. That was our compensation, and it was a lot of money back then because you could go to the Varsity and get a chili dog for 10 cents.” The idea of student-athletes receiving compensation for their hard work remains an issue in collegiate sports, notably college football. Trippi said he knows exactly where he stands. “I would like to see ballplayers now get some form of compensation. The money [schools] are making now, you take coaches now making millions of dollars,” he said. “There are a lot of kids in schools now that have no money.” The other crisis facing modern football is concussion-related injury. Trippi, a grizzled veteran of the sport who has taken many hits in his storied career, has difficulty understanding the legal action against the NFL and its leaders. “Back when I played, they had leather helmets. Those helmets did not absorb the contact like the helmets they have now,” he said. “I’ve had concussions, but I’m not suing anybody. I don’t see where they have a valid reason because they knew when they got into the game the dangers of getting hurt, getting concussions. Guys get broken legs, torn knees and they don’t sue.” “That’s an old pro talking,” his wife Margaret said. Trippi remains one of four former Bulldogs to have their numbers retired, as well as one of the most accomplished and respected Georgia athletes of all time.

The Red & Black

Study suggests student-athletes remain academically exploited BY TANYA SICHYNSKY The Red & Black Billy Hawkins thinks that college athletes in revenue-generating sports are exploited in more ways than one. Hawkins, an associate professor of kinesiology at the University of Georgia, said that student-athletes are not academically compensated for the athletic services they provide their universities. Hawkins said this is an issue experienced primarily by AfricanAmerican athletes who are attending predominantly white institutions. A recent study detailed in Hawkins book, The New Plantation, presents the argument that the NCAA exploits its athletes by allowing them to attend universities with academic course loads for which they may not have been previously prepared. The New Plantation explains the relationship between the NCAA and African-American athletes by using the provocative metaphor of modern-day slavery. “A lot of individuals are unaware of some of the things that are going on,” Hawkins said. “They don’t necessarily see the ins and outs and inner voices of student athletes that are facing the grind each and every day.” In order to grab the

Billy Hawkins’ book examines academic issues faced by modern student-athletes. David c bristow/Staff attention of his readers, Hawkins applied an idea that may not be popular to the public, but rather easy to understand and grasp the severity of the issues being discussed. “It’s an analogy,” Hawkins said. “It’s a metaphor to bring light or understanding to some of the challenges that a lot of young men specifically are facing on college campuses.” The challenges he refers to are primarily academic challenges. Athletes coming from lower socioeconomic backgrounds often times have difficulties adjusting to the academic demands of their universities. These difficulties stem from two glaring issues according to Hawkins — inadequate preparation prior to college and social-cultural differences between life at home and life on a new, predominantly white campus.

Junior left tackle Mark Beard said he faced both challenges during his transition from living in a singlemother household in high school in Alabama to Coffeyville Community College, and then from junior college to UGA. Beard attributes his time playing at a junior college to his academic struggles in high school, but credits the experience with preparing him for the lifestyle he would soon adopt after committing to play for Georgia. Still, the academic environment here is drastically different from the one offered at Coffeyville CC. One aspect of student life here at UGA that presents a challenge to Beard’s academic success is the classroom size. He said that if it were not for the tutors he has, he would’ve struggled in the large, 300 student lecture classes.

Stegeman Coliseum solution within reach

UGA’s demographic differences compared to his home back in Alabama were apparent to Beard, but it did not take him long to adjust. “I went to a predominantly black high school, but I had friends that went to all the other high schools,” Beard said about his time growing up in Alabama. “They made me feel comfortable.” In order to combat any academic challenges athletes might face during their transition to college, Hawkins proposes stronger bridge and orientation programs for incoming athletes, a reduction in semesterly course load and freshmen ineligibility, which would allow them to fully accept their responsibilities as students and learn how to prioritize and balance a hectic schedule. Freshman outside linebacker Josh Dawson said freshmen ineligibility would be met with resistance from his teammates, simply because he believes they put in enough effort to ensure they are on top of their academic demands. “We’re here in the summer unlike regular students,” Dawson said. “Some of us take May

classes while everybody else goes home. We’re actually catching up on the stuff that we miss.” Hawkins acknowledged that his propositions have received some criticism, but the overall reception to his research has been positive. He just hopes to bring attention to an issue that often times takes the back burner to discussions like the

There is now a chance that the barricades surrounding entrances of Stegeman Coliseum could be taken down within the next few weeks, according to Millard Choate, CEO of Choate Construction. While Choate could not give a definitive answer as to when exactly the barricades would come down if it happened in the next couple of weeks, he did commit to expressing an absolution about the progress of the situation. “We do have a proposed solution that will resolve the situation very shortly,” Choate said. “It is more of a technical complex and I’m not really at liberty to say what that plan is until it gets fully accepted.” It was previously reported that there was no proposed solution for repairing the four panes of glass that broke over the last few years according to Daniel Sniff, associate vice president for facilities planning at UGA and designer of the glass, who said that “we’re keeping up the scaffolding until we can figure out a long term solution to the problem.” There is now a plan that could create progress and resolution to the Stegeman Coliseum broken glass mystery. “I would anticipate hopefully that the remedy for this problem can be done within the next couple of weeks,” Choate said. “It is my hope, though I can’t guarantee it, that this thing finally comes to and we can move forward.” While Choate has yet to determine if the plan would absolutely bring down the barricades within the next few weeks, he did say the problem would be resolved by next basketball season. “Choate placed the barricades and scaffolding around Stegeman,” Choate said. “Choate construction has paid 100 percent of the cost of all of this barricades and protection. We take our obligations seriously and also would like to see them removed.” Choate said he thinks they have narrowed down what caused the glass

The Red & Black

Men’s tennis team focuses on NCAAs BY PRESTON SMITH @prestonsmithjr The Georgia men’s tennis team could not have wrapped up the SEC tournament in better fashion. The Bulldogs finished the regular season on a 10-match win streak before taking three straight to sweep the SEC tournament title as well, finishing it off with a dominant 4-0 victory over SEC East rival Tennessee. With final exams coming up, a lot of programs take the approach to give the athletes a break leading up to the NCAA tournament. Head coach Manuel Diaz’s approach is different, to say the least. “The next 10 days will be really hard,” freshman Ben Wagland said. “We are running every day and doing conditioning as well as training, and with final exams it can get tough. We will be worked hard.” Sophomore Nathan Pasha knows what to expect this year after experiencing the same annual training last year.

“The practices challenge us a lot more physically,” Pasha said. “We have two weeks to get ready, so we are doing a lot tougher fitness training, and a lot more running and heavy lifting. We’ll taper down as soon as the tournament rolls around. We’ve got a couple of weeks to get our bodies ready, and be in the best shape possible for NCAAs.” Diaz has been using this technique since the strength and conditioning coordinator Katrin Koch came up with the idea six years ago, and it has stuck ever since. With the end of the year exams part of the process of a student-athlete, Diaz is obviously willing to put school first and excuse the players when the exams overlap practice time. “I don’t think any one of our guys have more than three exams, except KU, it seems like he has about 10,” Diaz said. “We understand that there are going to be some days where they can’t make a workout, but they are fully committed to putting in the work.” While it could be viewed as a break in Georgia’s momentum, junior Hernus Pieters believes the extra time could be a huge advantage. “I think it is the same thought process (as during the season),” Pieters said. “We are still always trying to improve, and NCAAs are just always an exciting time. Everyone else (the other conferences) is finishing their tournaments this weekend, so I think we get a week more to practice. That will definitely work to our advantage.” As a top-three seed, Georgia is unofficially guaranteed to host the first two rounds of the NCAA tournament at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex, where the Bulldogs have been literally unbeatable this season. Georgia comes in at 12-0 at home, including 6-0 in conference. “It’s always nice to be at home for the first two rounds,” Pieters said. “We will probably have a few good teams that come here, but we should be ready for it.”

Four women’s tennis players earn All-SEC honors BY TAYLOR DENMAN The Red & Black

1900 W. Broad Street • (706)-353-6006 8am - 5:30pm Monday-Friday • 8am - 12pm Sunday

The Southeastern Conference league office announced last week that four Georgia women’s tennis players have been honored as members of the All-SEC team. Sophomore Lauren Herring and junior Maho Kowase are members of this season’s AllSEC first team, and junior Kate Fuller and freshman Silvia Garcia are members of the AllSEC second team. The All-SEC honors come as a bright spot after a heartbreaking SEC tournament for the No. 3 Bulldogs (23-4, 14-2 SEC), who were the SEC runners-up after falling in a tough 4-0 match to Florida. Head coach Jeff Wallace expressed the pride that he had for these players for the hard work they put in to gain this well deserved

Lauren Herring was one of four Georgia‘s women‘s tennis player to earn SEC awards. EVAN STICHLER/Staff honor. “I think all of those individual recognitions are exciting,” Wallace said. “It’s usually a byproduct of the team doing really well, and with the results we’ve had in the SEC season and on a national scale it’s well deserved for those guys. Lauren and Maho are first team AllSEC and Silvia and Kate are second team All-SEC and Silvia is on the All-freshman team.

Those are great honors for them…I’ve always said the better the team does, the more individual honors and recognitions we’ll end up getting.” For the three Georgia upperclassmen, all-conference honors are not something new. The country’s No. 6 women’s player, Herring, went 35-5 in singles this season. She is a member of the first team for the

second time in her career at Georgia. She has seven wins against top-30 opponents this season, and went 2-0 in the matches that she completed at the SEC tournament in Starkville, Miss. Herring was honored by the recognition, but she maintains her team-first attitude. “It’s awesome,” Herring said. “You don’t want to play too much into all of the awards, but it’s nice to recognized for what you’ve done. In the end, for me, it’s about helping out the team. Some type of personal honor is always nice.” Garcia, who began her college career back in January, is a firsttime All-SEC member. Fuller is also a threetime All-SEC team member. She is 28-7 on the year.

TENNIS: Coaches promote higher standard of success ➤ From Page 15 Some athletes suggest that the dynasty has been created as a result of Athens’ beautiful atmosphere. “First and foremost, since Georgia is such a tennis-loving state, there are simply more players to choose from here,” Slezak said. “Second, since UGA has the greatest collegiate facilities and coaches in the country, and Athens is such an awesome city, recruiting for the college teams is much easier than for other universities. The long-standing tennis tradition at UGA is still going strong, and current coaches Manny Diaz and Jeff Wallace, have done a tremendous job.” In that regard, “tremendous job” might be an understatement. Women’s tennis head coach Wallace owns more wins than any other active women’s tennis coach with a 606-148 career record — a .804 winning percentage. He is also the only person to be named ITA Coach of the Year four times in Division-I history, most recently in 2009. Wallace has led the Bulldogs

to the NCAA tournament 27 out of 28 times, including two national championships in 1994 and 2000. “It’s awesome (being at a school that is devoted to all of its tennis programs). It’s fantastic and that’s the way it should be,” Wallace said. “I’m excited that this university has such exciting tennis at all different levels...and hopefully the recruits are too.” Another aspect of collegiate tennis that flies under the radar is just how dominant the SEC is. For comparison’s sake, the SEC had seven teams in the past year’s final top 25, compared to 10 teams in the top 25 in men’s tennis. Three of the top four teams in women’s tennis are of the SEC as well. “I still want to go pro after college,” Georgia freshman Ben Wagland said. “I knew if I came here I’d have a better chance because this program is usually in the top five in the country.” And therein lies the beauty of being a national powerhouse. Similar to most collegiate sports, due to the nature of recruiting, the rich tend to get richer. Since

the time of Georgia legendary coach Dan Magill (who won two national championships), the Bulldogs have remained at the top of collegiate tennis. And while having the nicest facilities, location and conference are beneficial, the real secret to Georgia’s success has been the coaches. “I heard from many different people that Georgia was a great tennis program, and that they’ve achieved a lot over the history,” Hernus Pieters said. “I think that does have an influence, but when I came here it was more so meeting the coaches.” Sophomore Nathan Pasha agreed, especially in his situation where he didn’t really consider collegiate tennis until the age of 17. “I never seriously considered it (going somewhere other than Georgia),” Pasha said. “I didn’t know a lot about college, except I knew Georgia had a good tennis program and I knew the coaches. I just felt like Georgia was the place to be.”

Georgia golfers face pros in Stadion Classic BY NICK SUSS The Red & Black The Stadion Classic, a Web. com tour event, will once again be held at the University of Georgia golf course and two of the University’s most outstanding golfers were given waivers to participate in this year’s tournament. By virtue of scoring the best average stroke count across each of the team’s events, senior TJ Mitchell and junior Keith Mitchell were granted the team’s two exemptions and will be competing with and against professionals on May 2-5. For both competitors, this will be the first time they have received exemptions of this kind and both are highly anticipative and honored for the opportunity. “It’s my first tournament on this big of a stage,” Keith said. “And it’s like a home event, it’s a really big advantage and I’m honored to play in such a great event.” As unprecedented as it is for college athletes to be granted the opportunity to compete professionally, Georgia’s two competitors understand how their circumstances truly aren’t too irregular. Since 2010, when the Stadion Classic moved to the Georgia golf course, exemptions have been given to the two team members with the best statistics for the season. The short list of names Georgia has sent to the event includes PGA Tour card holders Harris English and Russell Henley, who won the event with one of his exemptions. “The event is an awesome, great opportunity,” TJ said. “It’s the same opportunity Russell and Harris had, and it’s even great if you don’t win to measure your game up and to motivate.” In addition to showcasing the school’s young stars, the tournament also serves as a homecoming for some including Ryuji Imada, Kevin Kisner and 2012 winner Hudson Swafford. Having friendly faces on the course contributes greatly to the confidence of the field’s youngest competitors, easing the tension

the two expect they will feel. “It’s nice having so many familiar faces,” Keith said. “I won’t feel like the little kid looking up at the giants.” “Having the guys come back motivates with a feeling that’s hard to explain,” TJ said. “It’s like a new sense of life.” Though some would suggest that the timing of the Stadion Classic could not be worse with NCAA Regionals looming and the event conflicting with finals week, the two Mitchells believe that it is anything but a distraction to be competing at such a time. In fact, the two genuinely think that this competition will work to bolster their successes in future events. “No, it’s definitely not a distraction [from the NCAA regionals],” TJ said. “If anything, it’ll help keep my game sharp. Playing in tournament-style events is a different kind of grind and it’ll keep me mentally sharp.” Keith also said the Stadion Classic would be helpful. “It’ll help tremendously for regionals,” Keith said. “It’s hard to find competition harder than the NCAAs — which might be the toughest non-professional event — we just have a spotlight on us.” Academically, the value of the event is far different. With so much of the game being mental and the possibilities to psyche one’s self out being endless, studying is actually a welcomed distraction. “It’s definitely going to be hard to focus,” TJ said. “But it gives me a nice outlet to have to go study and take my mind off of the event.” The importance of each was not lost on Keith. “It’s not the first time we’ve had to study late at night but this time is different,” Keith said. “This time it’s the biggest stage in school versus the biggest stage in golf.” Despite the significance and the added distractions that come along with the exemptions, neither golfer is anything but proud of their accomplishments. “This is very special,” TJ said. “Three years ago I thought it was outside my limits. It shows how much I’ve grown. It shows

how much I’ve grown, how consistent I’ve been throughout the whole year. I’ve proven myself.” “I’m just honored and thankful,” Keith said, “to honor the University of Georgia and to represent the school in the best way possible.” As veterans of the team who have just this year broken through the barrier into the territory in which they are now, it will undoubtedly be a different experience playing rather than cheering. The thought of what being on the course will be like is almost unfathomable for both of them, each having been on the team when Henley won in 2011 and Swafford in 2012. “I don’t know what it will be like,” Keith said. “I haven’t been inside the ropes. It’s so much fun watching from the gallery I can’t even imagine playing in the event. But I know my teammates watching. They’ll push me on.” Admission to the Stadion Classic is free for any student of the university with a valid student-ID. The festivities of the event begin earlier in the week on Monday with practice rounds, a pro-am tournament at noon and even a clinic for students at the driving range coaches by professionals. Having students in attendance is one of the many perks of having an event this close to campus. If free golf is not enough motivation to come, both of the Mitchells gave thoughts for additional consideration. “You’ll see the next Tiger Woods or the next Bubba Watson at this event,” Keith said. “About every top-25 player has played in an event like this, you never know who is the next greatest.” TJ contributed one other factoid. “You’re normally not allowed to drink alcohol on the course but for this event you are,” he said. “It’s a good chance to take a break from finals, watch some good golf, come down Saturday and Sunday and see some birdies on hole 13.”

Gymnastics team’s season defined by Super Six berth BY ELIZABETH GRIMSLEY @AllFlippedOut The No. 6 Georgia gymnastics team may not have come back from Los Angeles with a national championship, but “it was qualifying into that second day that was the major hurdle.” “For some, even getting to the top 12 in the country is a huge accomplishment,” Georgia head coach Danna Durante said. “I know that the Gym Dog nation is used to bringing home titles and trophies and we’ll get back there but certainly there are stepping stones you have to take.” For the senior class, the Super Six berth was something they had been working toward for three years. “It feels like a relief,” senior Shayla Worley said. “When we got through with vault [at prelims], there were a few tears of joy because it’s been a long time coming. It was an emotional previous three years for us, so for this last one to be the way we wanted it to be.” In the beginning, many of the gymnasts didn’t know what was going to happen with a completely new coaching staff. But when problems arose, the true strength of the team’s character came out.

First-year head coach Danna Durante (left) and senior Shayla Worley (right) were proud of the team's postseason accomplishments. Evan Stichler/Staff “Coaching change was not foreseen so that was extremely rare,” Worley said. “It tested us, our leadership and the characteristics of our team. When you’re faced with that you can either roll over and play dead and make mistakes, or you can forget about it, rise to the occasion by working harder and go after it anyways.” The post-season results felt even sweeter after thinking back on all of the things the team had to go through.

And they were better off because of it. “We handled adversity and we were not rattled by anything,” Worley said. “We could adapt to something like that. I think that it’s just really trying to be calm and not overreact. There have been a lot of things this year, and they’ve all helped contribute to our success.” Although getting back to the finals was “the expectation from the beginning,” sophomore Chelsea Davis said it feels good to

finally have gotten to that point. “It feels amazing,” Davis said. “To finally get that off our shoulders was awesome.” The success of this year also paves the way for future teams as they continue to build. “The best part of it is our juniors, sophomores and freshmen coming back next year cannot wait to get back in the gym so we can improve on that finish,” Durante said.

Jill Maloney isn’t your typical collegiate soccer player. Before entering college, Georgia soccer goalkeeper Maloney accomplished some goals that other players strive for throughout their careers. She participated in 38 international competitions in 24 different countries before signing with the Bulldogs. Maloney hasn’t let her early success get to her head. Her coaches always admire the positive attitude she brings to the pitch. Georgia soccer head coach Steve Holeman said he believes the University has a reputation for its strong performance in sports and academics, making it easy to recruit someone like Maloney. “Jill was one of them. She is extremely talented and intelligent,” Holeman said. “First and foremost, she is a great person. She has all of the qualities. As a player she is one of the top goalies in the country, and we wanted her to stay close to home.” She attracted the coach’s attention with her stellar play. It also helps that she is ranked 65th on ESPN’s top 150 class of 2013. “She ranks in the highest

did,” Maloney said. “I made a big save and I remember how crazy the crowd was and seeing the Ireland flags waving was very special to me.” Maloney joined Georgia’s soccer team in January after an early graduation, and she said she believes the Ireland session has prepared her for the college game. “In college, you have more conditioning and training, so the Ireland session helped me adjust to the big jump to college,” Maloney said. “It was good for me to do this.” With Maloney’s quick success, it is obvious that she had a variety of college offers. She chose to play for the Bulldogs because of the great people she met. “I wasn’t really expecting to like [Georgia],” Maloney said. “I wanted to go somewhere up north. But, when I got here, I loved the coaches, the people and the campus.” Maloney is a person who wants to express her talent in everything she does, but outside of her soccer abilities, she is just a regular teenager. “I watch a lot of TV and play video games. I’m trying to publish a novel,” Maloney said. “I’m just trying to do a little bit of everything.”

Old school meets new swag

Southern rapper Juicy J brings new sound and classically-inspired hip-hop to the Georgia Theatre PAGE 2

Juicy J wants Athens to ‘Stay Trippy’ BY CHELSEY ABERCROMBIE @comma_freak It’s hard out here for a pimp. But for rapper, producer and Academy Award-winning songwriter Juicy J — coming to the Georgia Theatre May 1 — the decision to get into the music game wasn’t hard at all. The Memphis, Tenn., native’s love of music has been lifelong and homegrown. “When I was growing up I wanted to be a drummer and a singer. I wanted to beat on those drums and beat box and whatever. I just had a love of music,” Juicy J said. “My granddaddy was on the piano, and he was playing the piano all the time.” Juicy J credits many old school musical greats for drawing him into the hip-hop universe. “I loved rapping as well. I love all the old school greats. That’s what got me in it,” Juicy J said. “I used to listen to a lot of old school stuff, like Isaac Hayes.” Also a songwriter and producer, life itself has been one of the rapper’s greatest sources of material. “Mostly personal experience,” Juicy J said, of his songwriting inspiration. “That’s where it comes from. If I were to write for someone else it wouldn’t necessarily be the same.” He said his desire to become a musician began at “age 12, 13” — a desire he ultimately parlayed into a career that spans more than 20 years in the music business. In 1991, Juicy J co-founded Three 6 Mafia, a Southern hiphop group that coined the now ubiquitous term crunk to describe its sound. “We were an underground group, had a tight fan base,” Juicy J said, “but the fanbase was bigger when we got the Academy Award.” It was in 2006 that Juicy J, along with Three 6 Mafia, won the Academy Award for Best Song for their rap anthem “It’s Hard Out Here For a Pimp.” With that, Three 6 Mafia became the first hip-hop group to win an Academy Award and the first hip-hop group to perform at the ceremony. “I’d call it the best experience in the world,” Juicy J said. “That’s

Juicy J “Stay Trippy” Tour When: Wednesday, May 1 Where: The Georgia Theatre Price: $20 what gave Three Six Mafia the household name. After that we started doing a lot of shows, shows overseas. It was a blessing.” In 2009, Juicy J released his second solo album, “Hustle Till I Die” — a follow-up to his 2002 solo debut “Chronicles of the Juice Man” — and embarked on a series of collaborations with fellow rapper Wiz Khalifa. In 2011, the rapper joined Khalifa’s independent record label, Taylor Gang. Juicy J has collaborated with a wide variety of fellow artists including The Weeknd, Young Jeezy, Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz, but he refuses to name a favorite. “I would say everybody,” Juicy J said, of his favorite collaborator. “Everybody has their different way of music.” Juicy J’s upcoming third solo album, “Stay Trippy,” is scheduled for release on July 2. Three singles have already been released off the upcoming album, including “Bandz A Make Her Dance,” which peaked at No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and was named the third best single of 2012 by the Washington Post. At his show in Athens, concertgoers will hear material from “Stay Trippy.” “They should expect some of my older stuff from back in the day, with the new sound,” Juicy J said. “The old mixed with the new. Old swag mixed with the new swag.” Juicy J is certain fans won’t be disappointed, both by the show and the upcoming album. “It’s definitely, incredibly some of my best work,” Juicy J said of the upcoming release. “To me it’s class, you know what I’m saying? It’s going down. Look out, July 2.”

Love is international – dating is not

Dana Swimmer, England in 1819, New Wives When: 9 p.m. Where: Flicker Theatre & Bar Price: $3 Contact:

BY CHELSEY ABERCROMBIE @comma_freak Dating in college has a special way of making you feel like you’re from another planet. Finding a life partner may seem easy — after all, people on TV can do it in three seasons, tops. But people have it much harder in the real world. And whether we realize it or not, all dating philosophies are shaped by cultural, familial and societal factors alike. Many international students who come to the University of Georgia every year find conventions similar to some in their home countries — such as the desires to do well, make friends and have fun — but dating is one thing that differs across borders. “Lithuanians date similarly to Americans, I guess, but it depends on what kind of family you come from and what kind of background,” said Sauleja Satkute, a third-year psychology and studio art major from Kaunas, Lithuania. “The way we date is we’re thinking more about marriage. It’s not just for fun. We’re actually trying to figure out if your boyfriend or girlfriend would be a good soulmate for the rest of your life.” The idea of “casual dating” in America has spawned countless television plotlines, coffee house conversations and bad romantic comedies — but it may not be as troublesome for our friends from other countries as it is for us. “In Brazil, when you start dating someone, it’s implied that it’s exclusive,” said Cris Lira, a Portuguese teaching assistant from Campo Grande, Brazil. “We don’t date other people at the same time. I think it’s interesting here that people need to sit down and discuss this idea that ‘we’re exclusive,’ otherwise people date other people at the same time.” Viviane Klen, also a Portuguese teaching assistant from São Paulo, Brazil, said that

The Red & Black

International students and Georgia natives alike gather to socialize and discuss cultures at International Coffee Hour. Erin O. Smith/Staff it’s not the process of American dating that’s interesting to her. It’s how that process begins in the first place. “What I saw here going downtown every weekend is that boys don’t approach girls,” Klen said. “A friend of mine told me it’s because there are so many girls here that the girls are coming to them. I don’t date anyone here, but because they don’t come [to me].” Allan Lacy, a mathematics graduate student from Limón, Costa Rica, said that American men might not know who to approach even if they wanted to. “In Costa Rica, you would tell if somebody is dating or not. Here somebody has to tell you,” Lacy said. “People in Costa Rica are more [affectionate]. I feel it’s very rare to see people holding hands in the street. Like couples that have a lot of years together will holds hands in public, and I don’t see that much here.” For students like Tawfiq Bhuiyan, a civil engineering graduate student, romantic relationships may not be called “dating" at all. Bhuiyan was born in Uganda, while his mother is from the Turks and Caicos Islands, and his father is from Bangladesh. “I’m Muslim, and in Islam, generally we’re not supposed to date,” Bhuiyan said. “We’re supposed to just get married. If there is dating in Islam, it’s chaperoned meet-ups.”

For Bhuiyan, finding a mate is a community effort. “I often get the question of whether or not it’s arranged, and the answer is that it’s not,” he said. “My parents do look, I look, friends and family look, extended family look.” While the way many Americans think of dating may not factor into Bhuiyan’s quest, the search for a life partner is based on many of the same things Americans look for. “You take family background into account, you take intelligence into account, you take looks into account, you take religion into account a lot,” he said. “If you like somebody and they like you, you can start talking and trying to figure out if it would work out. You work out what responsibilities you would want, what you think the other person should have in terms of responsibilities, when do you want to have kids, if you want to have kids.” Ultimately the driving force behind Bhuiyan’s search is one every dater around the world will understand, no matter if you’re from Bangladesh or Bartow County. Some universal truths need no translation. “You try to cover everything before you get married so you don’t get screwed,” Bhuiyan said.

Clearing out the pantry as the semester’s end draws near By CAROLINE BROWN @cbrown130 It’s the end of the semester, and for those of us who are not staying in Athens over the summer, that means we need to clean out our pantries. There’s a lot of food that won’t last until next fall. In a way, this saves money, because you are forced to use ingredients you already have instead of buying even more at the store. Below are two dinners and one dessert, all extremely easy and with ingredients that start with pantry staples. Sausage & Peppers with Parmesan Cheese Grits This can be made in less than 30 minutes. The only ingredients I had to buy at the store were the chicken sausage and bell peppers. Meanwhile, I got to use up some of the broccoli florets I keep in the freezer and the old fashioned grits in the pantry. Ingredients: 1 19-ounce package sweet Italian sausage (or turkey or chicken sausage) 3 red, yellow, orange or green bell peppers, cut into strips 1 cup broccoli florets 1 large sweet onion, cut in half and thinly sliced 2 garlic cloves, minced 1-2 teaspoons Italian seasoning ½ teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon pepper Grits Ingredients: 1 cup old-fashioned grits 4 cups water ¾ teaspoon salt and pepper 1 tablespoon margarine or butter 5-ounces shredded Parmesan cheese Cook grits according to package directions. Stir in salt, pepper, butter and cheese. Remove and discard sausage casings. Cook sausage and next eight ingredients in

a large skillet over mediumhigh heat, stirring until sausage crumbles and is no longer pink, and veggies are tender. Serve over grits. Garnish with cheese optional. Serves: 4 Quinoa with sautéed veggies This is my “everything but the kitchen sink” recipe. Anything goes, and it usually includes vegetables that I am trying to use up before they go bad. I eyeball the amount of ingredients, it’s entirely up to you how many carrots, mushrooms, etc. you want. Reserve the bell peppers and avocado for the end. I don’t cook the bell peppers because I like the crunch it provides raw. The texture when it is heated is limp and not very appetizing, in my opinion. The avocado is creamy and smooth on its own, no need to cook it. Ingredients: ½ cup tri-color quinoa (I use Trader Joe’s organic brand) Olive oil Handful of baby carrots, cut into bite-size pieces Porcini mushrooms (or any mushroom variety), sliced Salt and pepper ½ teaspoon garlic, minced Paprika, sprinkled over veggies Red bell pepper, cut into bitesize pieces Ripe avocado, cut into wedges Cook the quinoa according to directions on package. While it is simmering, heat a sauté pan to mediumhigh heat and add a ½ tablespoon of olive oil. When oil is heated, add carrots and mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper. When mushrooms are browned and carrots are tender (about seven to 10 minutes), add garlic and paprika. Let the spices heat up for about a minute or two, until they are fragrant. Reduce heat to low until the quinoa is done. Pour quinoa and sautéed

Use up excess vegetables with some scrumptious tri-color quinoa. CAROLINE BROWN/Staff veggies into bowl. Add uncooked red bell pepper and avocado, then stir everything together. Serves 1, but can easily be doubled or tripled. Quick Peanut Butter Cookies Peanut butter has a long shelf life, but this recipe helps clear it out if you want to use up what you have. My roommates and I discovered this recipe when we had a huge craving one night for peanut butter cookies. Within 10 minutes, they were in the oven. That’s how easy they are — everything is a pantry staple. Ingredients: 1 cup peanut butter 1 cup white sugar 1e gg 1 teaspoon baking soda

Pinch of salt ½ teaspoon vanilla extract Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheets. In a medium bowl, stir peanut butter and sugar together until smooth. Beat in the egg, then stir in the baking soda, salt and vanilla. Roll dough into one-inch balls and place them two-inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Press a criss-cross on the top using the back of a fork. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for five minutes before removing.

‘Injustice’ brings ‘Mortal Kombat’ style to revamped DC Universe BY WES MAYER The Red & Black Have you ever wanted to run the Joker over with the Batmobile, or super-punch Lex Luthor into space and send him back down as a fiery meteorite? Now you have your chance with “Injustice: Gods Among Us.” The creator of “Mortal Kombat," NetherRealm Studios, has brought us a similarly-styled fighting game just for the DC Comics fans out there. “Injustice” has a number of game modes to play through, the most interesting of which is the main story, centered around Superman. After the Joker somehow managed to trick Superman into killing Lois Lane and their baby, leading to the destruction of Metropolis in a massive explosion, Superman completely loses it. He kills the Joker, becomes Batman’s greatest enemy and rules the world through his “Regime,” ending crime by spreading fear and death as a now murderous (“Unjust”) Superman. Some super heroes and villains decide Superman is better as an ally and join his Regime. Some believe Superman should be stopped and join Batman’s “Insurgency.” Basically, the classic feud of hero against villain is turned on its head as new, unprecedented alliances are formed. In an effort to stop Superman, Batman summons heroes from a past, alternate timeline to aid him in his Insurgency. This adds some confusion to the mix because heroes find themselves face to face with ... themselves (like the noble, green Green Lantern against the evil, yellow Green Lantern), or end up fighting against friends who were former allies (like Batman against Nightwing). There are 24 characters in

“Injustice” (although more downloadable characters are soon to follow), almost all of which you should recognize from the major DC Comics. Each character is distinct, but there are certain obvious character archetypes they could fit into. There are the speed characters like Flash, Catwoman and Green Arrow, the heavyhitters like Bane, Solomon Grundy and Doomsday, and the super power-based characters like Raven, Green Lantern and Killer Frost. But other characters, like Superman — a heavy-hitting, super power user — obviously fit into more than one type. You play as only a few of the characters throughout the story, and generally each character fights four different opponents (usually including their evil alternative selves) until the story puts you into the hands of a new character. In-between the player-controlled battles, the story is filled with comic book-style dialogue and oneliners, along with many actionpacked combat cinematics that show how cool the super heroes can be when they team up and combine their powers. But all of the fighting you do in the game is one-on-one, so you don’t really get that same team spirit experience while in control. The battles play out like the “Mortal Kombat” games we are all familiar with. You fight every battle on a single plane and can only jump so high (there aren’t any mid-air battles). Each character has his or her distinct moves, super abilities and special attacks. With correct timing, you can block, dodge and counter attack, and with enough practice, you can carefully string together powerful chains of combos to crush your enemies. Or you can just frantically button mash, which is a perfectly viable option too. When you’re in the heat of battle, it’s easy to miss how

Classic characters from the DC Universe have their stories rewritten by the events of "Injustice: Gods Among Us." Courtesy WB Games great “Injustice” looks. Every character has detailed costumes that makes them stand out, and the arenas you fight through include all sorts of DC goodies littered throughout the background, especially in arenas like the Arkham Asylum and the Watchtower. The characters and arenas keep their comic book feel though, and it isn’t all centered around blood and gore like in “Mortal Kombat” games. After you finish the story, “Injustice” has a few other modes to keep the fighting interesting. Battle mode has a number of different styles to play through as you fight your way up a 10-enemy ladder, with the opponents getting tougher each time. You can play through the straightforward Classic Battles (traditional “Mortal Kombat” style), or you can choose others Battles where the characters are poisoned, constantly losing health, or the timer is only at 30 seconds and the fight has to end quickly. The difficulty levels can also be changed for Battles, depending on how much you want to test or torture yourself. There are also the S.T.A.R. Labs, character-specific missions that range from interesting and challenging fights to extremely frustrating, strenuous and pointless timing-based missions that make you want to knock yourself out with your controller. Each S.T.A.R. mission has three challenges, like

using certain combos, avoiding knockdowns, finishing in a certain time limit or something else that adds unnecessary difficulty. Completing the challenges rewards you stars, which can then unlock later missions for each of the 24 characters. The S.T.A.R. missions seem incomplete, though. Each character has 10 missions with some story-like objective, but the characters don’t have dialogue like they do in the regular story mode, and the missions and overall stories don’t always make sense. The characters instead speak with text (like a comic book...kind of) and some missions just seem like fillers. But if you’re up for a challenge that differs from the normal fighting modes, then the S.T.A.R. missions will occupy some time. And finally, there is multiplayer. If you find you are getting too skilled, why not be brutally humbled by a complete stranger online? Every fight you complete in “Injustice” grants you experience and allows you to level up. This doesn’t make the characters any better, but it unlocks customizations for your hero card and allows you to unlock new extras. While it isn’t incredibly rewarding, leveling up gives some motivation to keep fighting because like all similar fighting games, I will admit that “Injustice” is repetitive.

Director Eric Von Haessler documented Drivin’ n’ Cryin’s unnoticed talent and history with simply a desktop Mac and Final Cut Pro. Courtesy Drivin' n' Cryin'

Documentary spotlights Drivin’ n’ Cryin’s roots BY BEN DELL’ORTO @bend353 Drivin’ n’ Cryin’ has been playing since 1985, but many people outside of its home state of Georgia don’t recognize its name. Eric Von Haessler is trying to change that. One of the funny men behind the morning show, “The Regular Guys,” Von Haessler has directed a documentary based on the Atlanta hard rock band, “Scarred but Smarter (life n times of drivin n cryin)” that will show at the Melting Point. Von Haessler first became interested in the group after he was given one of its albums. “I got pissed off that this album was so good, and no one was talking about [it], so I offered to make a music video for the album,” Von Haessler said. “I pitched the idea to do a documentary, and strangely enough they said yes, and three years later, now it’s done and we’re showing it.” Von Haessler funded and shot the documentary, his first, over the course of three years. The film combines concert footage, interviews and vintage footage of the

band. “I wanted to see if it was possible to make a movie with cinematic scope on a desktop computer,” Von Haessler said. The documentary features interviews with many different musicians including Peter Buck, Ed Roland and Darius Rucker. The showing of the film at the Melting Point will mark the fourth time the film has been shown. “This will be the first time the band performs in conjunction with the film — that hasn’t happened yet,” Von Haessler said. Drivin’ n’ Cryin’ has released over a dozen albums, and front man Kevn Kinney has written more than 100 songs. “We started in ’85 for the same reason everybody gets started: free beer, girls, you know,” said Kinney, the singer, songwriter and guitarist for the group. “Everybody wants to be in a band, even if they don’t think they want to be in a band.” The group has toured consistently since its start more than 25 years ago. “We never make a set list before the show. We never make a set list after the show either,” Kinney said. “The

The group hasn’t released a fulllength album since “The Great American Bubble Factory,” and probably won’t release another. “I can make a point with five or six songs,” Kinney said. “Nobody wants to hear 19 songs on a CD anymore.” The Melting Point show will mark the start of a tour to promote the documentary, which will screen before each show. “If you haven’t seen us, come out,” Kinney said. “I think you’ll really enjoy it.”

England in 1819 unites both sides of the pond with rock

BY SARAH ANNE PERRY @sarahanneperry The name is misleading, but England in 1819 has roots in Georgia clay. The band consists of brothers Dan and Andrew Callaway and their father Liam. Liam is the progeny of Athensborn trombonist William Callaway, who performed throughout mid-century Georgia. After taking on the Athens new wave scene in the 1970s, Liam moved his family to the English countryside. Now based in Baton Rouge, La., the indie rock family band is stopping in town on its one month tour of the southern U.S. “I was born in Athens, so it definitely has a special place in my heart,” Andrew said. In addition to the hometown bond, Athens' musical heritage and culture is a draw to any musician, especially one of Andrew's talent and stature. “I think the music scene there is just super unique. You’ve just got so much energy being put into the music scene there that it’s just really encouraging, you know? I think anybody’d want to be a part of that,” Andrew said. Andrew could envision his musical family returning to its Athens roots. “I think, for us, it’s just a matter of relocating, but I could see it happening some day," he said. But the Callaways' potential return to Athens is more than a question of chance. "I kind of hope it does, I guess,” Andrew said. Music may be a Callaway legacy, but the brothers’ pastoral upbringing is what refined their interest in the art form. “We spent a lot of time with music in England,” Andrew said. “We didn’t watch a lot of TV, just because it wasn’t a real big part of people’s lives then. Not that it was that long ago or anything, but it’s just the way it was there." The Callaways' childhood allowed for the early musical education. Everybody’s kind of outside all the time, or we were inside playing

Father Liam and brothers Andrew and Dan Callaway are the members of England in 1819, which produces an indie rock sound. Courtesy England in 1819 music — and that was it.” Dan and Andrew returned to the U.S. to study in Ohio conservatories. After immersing themselves in classical music, they decided to pursue a more accessible genre. Reuniting with their father in Baton Rouge, they combined keyboard, guitar, bass and vocals with French horn and trombone to create a chamber rock sound all their own. “For a while, my idea was to try and use as much of the classical composition knowledge as possible,” Andrew said. “It’s really hard to get away from that stuff once you start thinking about it. Once we’re on the road and touring and everything, it doesn’t enter my brain as much because we’re just out in the indie rock world.” England in 1819 has released two albums, 2009’s “Three Cheers for Bertie” and 2012’s “Alma.” During this tour, the band will be promoting its new single, “Our Own God,” which is a departure from its earlier sound. “This is the first single with electronic drums, so it kind of represents the new direction for us,” Andrew said. “We’re also slightly more upbeat, I’d say, just from touring a lot and playing in bars a lot. We wanted to try and capture some of that energy that’s out there, being on the road

Andrew said the band hopes to record an EP later this year but might just keep releasing singles. “We’ve been touring so much, and we love that,” Andrew said. “It’s great to just get out there. And then, when we’re home for whatever length of time, we try and put together whatever songs I’m working on." The band sees no reason to change its plan anytime soon. “I think we’re just going to kind of keep doing that, bouncing back and forth between being on the road and not being on the road,” Andrew said.

Christian fiction novel stems from ambitious high school senior project BY SHANNON ADAMS @Shan_N_Adams Chelsey Guy, an ordinary high school student, made her senior project extraordinary. While other kids learned how to play the piano or cook, Guy decided that for her senior project at Columbus High School she would write a novel, “The Kindling Muse.” “We have to do a senior project, which is a gigantic project that kind of determines whether or not we graduate, and we start it at the end of our junior year,” Guy said. “We have to learn a skill that we would be able to continue for a lifetime.” Students in the past tried writing novels for their senior projects, but they usually printed them out and put them in binders or bound them themselves. Chelsey wanted to take her book to the next level. “I knew I did not want to do that with my book,” Guy said. “I wanted it to be more than that since I put in so much work for it, and I’d done so much with it. So that was when I decided to look at self-publishing companies, and it was then that I stumbled upon Abbott Press.” Abbott Press, a division of Writer's Digest, provides writers the professional publishing tools needed to get their own book in print. Guy started writing “The Kindling Muse” last May, and the 388-page book was released in late February. “My book follows Addie Flamma, and she goes through a lot of issues in her life,” Guy said. “She goes through bullying, she has severe health problems, she’s in foster care. She’s also trying to figure out all of the mysteries that surround her life — like what happened to her parents, and what’s going on with her school, which is really weird.” Guy was inspired by her own struggles in high school, such as coming to a new school, trying to make new friends and generally suffering the ups and downs that come with being a student. She channeled those issues into the characters. “She has a lot of problems, a lot of mysteries, and all of that culminates and just ignites at the end of the book and becomes something really big,” Guy said. Guy also drew from Greek

“The Kindling Muse” follows 16-year-old Addie Flamma, who was inspired by author Chelsey Guy's real-life experiences. Courtesy Abbott Press mythology when writing her novel. “I’ve always wanted to write something that did a different spin on Greek mythology, because so many kids at my school were confused about it,” Guy said. “So I wanted to write something that was both entertaining and educational for them.” Guy’s interest in books and reading started at a young age. She was writing short stories and poems by the age of 12. She was originally inspired and interested in literature thanks to her mother, who was an English teacher. Being an officially published author, particularly at such a young age, is an odd realization for Guy. “It’s still feels kind of weird because people are calling me an author now,” Guy said. “It’s not that I feel like I’m not an author, but it’s just still weird to realize that my writing is out there for the world to see and critique and hold in their hands and judge. But at the same time it’s really gratifying and really something to be proud of for me.”

GROOVE: Drugs break up band to end era of jam ➤ From Page 1 The factors were working against him this night in the Centennial State. “It just became this struggle to finish that show,” Suttle said. “Keep in mind, I’m already battling the fact that I was in shape, now I’m out of shape, and I’m at a high, high altitude and we’re playing a two-and-a-half hour show. For most of the bands, probably for their drummers, it probably isn’t a big deal. For PGroove, it’s a marathon. No ifs, ands or buts about it — it’s a marathon. At that point in the show it’s not just a matter of a mental thing. Physically, I want to get through this, I want to survive the damn show. It was just frustrating, and that happened I want to say four or five times throughout the year.” The fuel was slowly being thrown on the fire; all that was needed was one spark. How to say ‘Goodbye’ The dilemma Perpetual Groove faced at the final show was how to squeeze 16 years into one night. The band referred to it as the “Final Countdown.” It was the last stretch of shows in Knoxville, Tenn., and Nashville, Tenn., the unplugged, acoustic show at the Green Room in Athens and then the last goodbye at the Georgia Theatre. The Athens-based foursome had the daunting task of searching through an extensive catalog containing four albums, dozens of covers and a

If so, which covers? Are we going to do covers that we’ve done many, many times? There was a big discussion going on.” McDonald compiled the setlists over the years, but this one had to be perfect. It had to encapsulate the best songs in its arsenal while flowing in a manner that never let the emotionality of the night take over. “I definitely felt that I wanted most of the songs to be the more positive, uplifting ones,” Butler said. “It was definitely a concern of mine that the overall vibe might be a little too much a funeral.” One song Butler wanted to play was one of the first songs he ever wrote — “Crowded Tub.” Once he suggested it, McDonald agreed right away, and both felt it was the perfect song to open with. “That song was one of the very first songs that was written with the lineup that didn’t even have Albert and Matt. It was the original college year’s line-

Keyboardist Matt McDonald (left) and drummer Albert Suttle (right) of Perpetual Groove spoke about the ins and outs of the band's history, as well as the reasons behind its recent break-up. Taylor Craig Sutton/Staff up,” Butler said. “Even looking at that song — parts of it I can still tell that it was very early in the songwriting career. There’s certain lyrics you write when you’re 19 or 20 years old, you don’t have a lot of life experience to draw from, which I think is highly valuable as far as lyrical content goes. But that song was one that I definitely wanted to do.” The rest of the setlist fell into place rather seamlessly after that, drawing songs from every phase of the band’s career. When that fateful Friday arrived, there was nothing out of the ordinary. The group knew this day had been coming for months, and every possible scenario had been thought of. “For me I was surprisingly very calm during all of it,” Suttle said. There was nothing that had yet to be addressed.

“Everything else was very much like, ‘OK, we know how we’re going to do this, we know how we want to do it,’” McDonald said. “We talked ‘til we were blue in the face about it.” Hiatus For the second year in a row, PGroove would ring in the New Year at Center Stage in Atlanta. It had become a tradition for the band. Perry began by debuting a solo song, showing off his musical prowess with all eyes on him. The rest of the band joined after and performed an acoustic set to start the evening. Once the band plugged in, the show had all the components for a memorable New Year’s Eve. The song selection was sharp, and Gary Paulo, saxophonist, and Michael Blair, guitarist for Under the Porch, sat in

to cover the Pink Floyd classics “Us & Them” and “Any Colour You Like” to take the show into the new year. The first song of 2013 was “Speed Queen,” and the band set it up to finish later in the show by transitioning into “Green Tea” instead. Cues were starting to get missed, and it was clear that something wasn’t right. “If anyone listens to the New Year’s show, if you listen to the end of it, it’s not a good show,” McDonald said. “It wasn’t just that show. There were several shows leading up to it, but that was the tipping point. It was like the straw that broke the camel’s back.” PGroove returned to “Speed Queen” in the encore, but Butler was all over the place. He was missing solos on a song whose lifeblood was his guitar. McDonald had to jump in and play Butler’s

parts on the keys instead. It may have been viewed as a fresh take on the song, but many in attendance saw it wasn’t right. Alex Tramble, 23, plays bass for Mariettabased band Lingo, has been going to PGroove shows since the spring of 2005 and has attended “at least 50 shows.” “I remember there was this part of the end of ‘Speed Queen’ where there’s a break after the long jam, and there’s this outro that’s very uplifting and it’s very lead guitar heavy,” Tramble said. “Right before that break I remember saying to who was next to me, ‘Man, if he doesn’t nail this part, I’m off the bandwagon. I’m done with the PGroove thing.’ He came in and flubbed those first couple of notes and I remember being so let down.”
