Adams opposes weapons bill Senate could pass law allowing guns on college campuses By JACOB DEMMITT THE RED & BLACK There are few things every university president across the state can agree on. But when it comes to keeping guns off their campuses, most are on the same page. Twenty-six university presi-

dents, including University President Michael Adams, signed a letter sent to the Senate Special Judiciary Committee urging lawmakers to keep gun laws as they stand today. This letter was in response to the Georgia House of Representatives Bill 615, which

would allow the carry of concealed weapons in all areas of the state — including college campuses — with the exception of jails, prisons and courtrooms. “We believe the current law is sufficient,” said John Millsaps, spokesperson for the Board of Regents. “We feel it

provides the safest environment for our students and faculty.” Although schools in the University System of Georgia remain aligned against HB 615, a similar piece of legislation was introduced to the Senate See GUN, Page 2

Police Incident Report

Moreno accused of battery By JACOB DEMMITT THE RED & BLACK

Eric Swegman started for the Bulldogs, striking out two Presbyterian batters in Georgia’s 11-3 first home victory.

Big offense propels Diamond Dogs to win home opener By DREW KANN THE RED & BLACK Even with temperatures hovering in the low 40s for much of Wednesday evening, the Diamond Dogs’ (3-2) bats warmed up quickly in their 11-3 win over Presbyterian Blue Hose in their 2010 home opener. After junior starting pitcher Eric Swegman retired the first three Presbyterian batters he faced in his Bulldog debut, sophomore right fielder Peter

Verdin grounded to short beat a throw from Presbyterian shortstop Gabe Grammer to start the Diamond Dogs’ big bottom of the first. With two outs, freshman designated hitter Zach Taylor, who went 2-for-3 on the night, doubled to left center field, bringing home Verdin to put Georgia in front 1-0. “It was important. It helped liven up the crowd,” said sophomore right fielder Johnathan Taylor of the Bulldogs’s three-

The Blue Hose scored two runs off of freshman right hander Malcolm Clapsaddle in the third to trim the Bulldog lead to one, and later evened the score in the seventh against Georgia right hander Steve Esmonde. “Clapsaddle struggled. I don’t think he was quite ready for the cold and being a freshman and not realizing he was going to be in there,” said Georgia coach David Perno. “When you See GAME, Page 8

A University student told police former Georgia running back Knowshon Moreno knocked him out with a punch to the face in a downtown bar last Saturday. Stephen Anderson, 18, filed a report with AthensClarke County Police Monday accusing Moreno, a running back for the Denver Broncos, of misdemeanor battery. According to the report, Anderson said he was intoxicated at the time of the incident, so he is basing the account on what several witnesses told him after MORENO the fact. The confrontation reportedly began when three males “jumped” Anderson, striking him in the back of the head and ear and tearing his shirt. Later, as his friends were escorting him out of Bourbon Street Bar, Moreno reportedly ran up and punched Anderson once in the face, knocking him unconscious. Although Anderson didn’t seek law enforcement or medical help at the time of the incident, he did go to the University Health Center the following Monday, where he was diagnosed with a concussion. At press time, Anderson had provided the name of one witness, but he told police there are several who could identify Moreno. Anderson declined to comment, and Moreno and representatives from the Broncos could not be reached Wednesday.

‘The Love List’ questions ideal qualities in a partner Adult humor has ‘some meat to it’ By MICHELLE BENNETT THE RED & BLACK Sex is number four on Bill’s love list. It’s a list of qualities he wants in a significant other. Friday night is opening night for the Town and Gown Player’s production of “The Love List,” where the character Bill, a divorced 50-year-old, explores his own love list after seven years of celibacy. “It’s a comedy that’s a lot of fun but also has some meat to it,” said

actor Allen Rowell, who plays the part of Bill. Bill receives the life-changing love list when his friend Leon, played by Jeff Evans, takes him out to dinner and gives it to him as a birthday gift. Little does Bill know that Leon got this list from a dating service run by a local gypsy and it would actually bring someone into his life. “This woman walks in like she owns the place. He thinks Leon has bought her for him,” said director Rick Rose. Justine, played by actress Bryn Adamson, appears in the first act and leads Bill and Leon through a whirlwind. “It is strategically an adult come-

dy that deals with some adult things,” Rowell said. “We have some fun and there is a lot of humor.” But the humor the play extols is more dirty than dry. “It’s one of those plays you read and you laugh,” Adamson said. “It’s been a long time since we’ve done a rolling-in-the-aisles-laughing kind of play.” The humor, Rose said, also comes with some real substance. “The plot is cute,” Rose said. “If there’s any message of importance in this play, it’s be careful what you ask for.” It’s that very message that brings so much humor to the

E-mail, C-minus on SGA agenda By RAISA HABERSHAM THE RED & BLACK This summer, students can say goodbye to UGAMail as the University embraces a new e-mail system. At Tuesday’s Student Government Association senate meeting, SGA members discussed the new e-mail system, Microsoft Live Outlook. The system, launching in the summer, will have expanded storage capabilities and sharing tools similar to Google, said Cameron Secord, vice president of SGA. Funding for the system came from the student technology fee, and there will be no additional costs. The inexpensive e-mail system left a $100,000 surplus, but just how the surplus will be used has yet to be determined. “It hasn’t been decided yet, but the student technology fee committee will convene to discuss that,� said Katie Barlow, SGA president. Another issue at the meeting was C-minus reform and SGA’s attempts to standardize the C-minus grade across campus, an initiative which began with

the Connor McCarthy and Nicki Batelli administration in Fall 2009. “A lot of colleges have the C-minus as a mark needed to progress into a major,� Secord said. “But everyone uses different language for it.� Secord said most faculty want to eliminate the letter grade rather than create a new policy that may be more confusing. The C-minus reform will require more professor input, Secord said, and SGA hopes to present a resolution to the University Council Curriculum Committee by the end of the semester. The SGA administration is also seeking changes in course evaluations. Secord said a major part of course evaluations is getting them standardized, something SGA has been working on since 2007. The purpose of standardizing course evaluations is to make them more accessible and fair. “You get different feedback based on question wording or the order in which they are asked,� Barlow said of the nonstandardized evaluations currently in use at the University.

GUN: New bill limits carry ¢From Page 1 on Jan. 12 which is supposed to alleviate some of their concerns. Like HB 615, Senate Bill 308 would do away with the provision banning firearms within 1,000 feet of college campuses. However, it would not allow carry in dormitories, research facilities or classrooms. Author of the bill, Majority Whip Sen. Mitch Seabaugh (R-Sharpsburg), said he has been working with the University System’s Board of Regents to come up with a bill that pleases everyone. “A lot of things they listed as concerns in the letter I have been working with them on to find common ground,â€? Seabaugh said. “The original filing of SB 308 would have allowed carrying in classrooms, but the latest proposal would not. I’ve been getting input, and we adopted classrooms as a compromise.â€? Despite these changes, University Police Chief Jimmy Williamson still has his concerns. “If this law went into effect we would have to revamp training,â€? Williamson said. “When officers arrive on a scene, the guy waving a gun in the air is usually considered the bad guy.â€? However, Williamson said he would enforce the law no matter what. “When I took the oath of office, I didn’t take an oath to just enforce the laws I like,â€? he said.

Oglethorpe House Dining Commons has played host to many Sunday brunches, study groups and maybe even a few cheap dates. But on Feb. 23, the dining hall was home to a discussion of a whole different nature. Ashley Laine Wilde reported overhearing a suspicious conversation while eating in O-House between 8:20 and 9 a.m. According to the University Police report, Wilde did not know the overheard individuals, but she said the content of the conversation worried her.

By AN NGUYEN THE RED & BLACK The Chess Dawgs can still brag about being the best college chess team in Georgia after coming in first place at the Georgia Open College Chess Tournament Saturday — for the second year in a row. Unlike last year, when the winner was decided in a tiebreaker, the Chess Dawgs went undefeated in each of the four rounds, winning the tournament outright. Seven schools, including Georgia Tech, Mercer and Emory participated in the tournament held at Emory this year. Georgia Tech’s team, who lost to the Chess Dawgs last year in the tiebreaker blitz round, came in second place again this year. The blitz round allows each player only five minutes to play a game. Two teams of four from the University participated in the tournament Members Ken Bennett, Ben Cartoon and Femi Ogunyemi each won Individual Achievement awards for going undefeated in all of the rounds they played. Unsure about how they would perform after losing two key players, the Chess Dawgs were pleased with the victory. “We weren’t really sure how strong we were going to be,� said Chess Dawgs president Geoff Malcolm. “But Ken Bennett led the team very well, and overall we had a strong team.� Bennett, a senior from Blackshear, has played chess since childhood and has found there are certain ben-

Though the group does not plan on attending any more state tournaments this semester, the club has partnered with The Globe to host a local chess tournament later in the semester. The club also recently started a weekly after-school program at St. Joseph Catholic School, a local elementary school. “We want to give back to the

PICK OF THE WEEK: Holmes-Hunter Lecture Calling all Southerners, Georgia fans, history buffs and patriots — this annual lecture is one not to be missed. Black History Month is coming to an end, but the Holmes-Hunter Lecture celebrates more than desegregation of the University — it celebrates an important aspect of our American history. The lecture is in honor of the University’s first enrolled African-American students, Charlayne Hunter-Gault and the late Hamilton Holmes. This year’s speaker is Ron Clark, author and founder of the Ron Clark Academy in metro Atlanta. Clark is wellknown for inspiring a group of inner-city students in Harlem, N.Y. to achieve the highest test scores in their school. The Ron Clark Academy uses innovative teaching techniques to allow students to achieve academic excellence beyond most school districts’ standards. Clark will speak on race relations, inclusion and diversity, and students from his academy will give a special performance. A book signing and reception will follow.

Afghanistan’s dead show reality of war

A

group of boys commit to the demolition of ant piles. They blow holes in the backyard. Whoops, they say. U.S. Special Forces troops, representing NATO, kill a reported 27 civilians outside Kabul, Afghanistan Tuesday. This is the second deadly erroneous airstrike in six months. Whoops, they say. Big difference — the army of boys don’t know any better. The army of men do. Yet an apology on national television by the commander of NATO and U.S. forces is the only atonement? American involvement in Afghanistan is designed to strengthen government influence over its people, creating a unified nation. The regrettable airstrike was made on civilians who appeared to be a group of suspected insurgents — the Taliban — attacking a governmentcontrolled Afghan unit. Now, I am no expert on foreign policy or military strategy, and I can’t see Afghanistan from my apartment window, but it’s absolutely clear to me that we aren’t making friends and influencing people. When our weapons are so imprecise, civilians are killed. Yes, war is hell and we can’t put the U.S. Army into conflict without understanding that good people as well as bad people will be hurt. But as a young woman concerned with my country’s future, and the world’s concern for us today, I ask whether there can be a better way. As I understand about the tribal culture of Afghanistan, if we kill one civilian in search for terrorists, all the civilian’s cousins become terrorists.

Opinions

Our generation of students cannot reasonably be held responsible for how the U.S. Army operates in Afghanistan. But we have a voice in the affairs of our country, and pretty soon we will be in charge of those affairs. The U.S. spent over $700 billion in the 2009 fiscal year for military defense. Where does it go, you may ask. It goes to NATO, war efforts and supplemental programming. We need to know that. The U.S.’s contribution comprises about half of NATO’s total military defense spending. We need to know that, too. Why is it important to know this? Because that — along with learning from the accumulation of current affairs abroad — is a good start to how we will minimize the “whoopses” and maximize the results when it’s our generation’s turn in foreign affairs. So I think in addition to mastering our coursework in the art of growing up, we also — we, as in all of us — must understand our country’s foreign policy, and particularly what’s going on in Afghanistan. And whether for or against U.S. involvement in Afghanistan’s affairs, we need to show support. We need to find a temporary middle ground of responsibility between playing in the backyard and “playing” overseas. — Amanda Abbott is a senior from Alpharetta majoring in newspapers and spanish

E-mail and letters from our readers

Article on administrators’ salaries causes confusion the state the cost of funding raises for the entire fiscal year. These raises effective 14 months ago are the last general raises the university has had and applied to most university employees, not just top faculty and administrators. Furloughs began in fiscal year 2010. The first furlough date was Oct. 30, 2009, a full 10 months after the last pay raises went into effect. While the R&B article did not mention furloughs, some readers have erroneously concluded that the individuals highlighted were receiving pay raises while others were being furloughed. This is an incorrect conclusion. TOM JACKSON VICE PRESIDENT PUBLIC AFFAIRS UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA

Keep drinking friends safe at parties Y ou may recall how a university student told a Red & Black reporter how she had been drinking so heavily that one or more men possibly sexually assaulted her and that she only wanted to reveal the details anonymously (“Four University rapes reported; zero charges pressed,” Feb. 15). Why? Because, she said, she feels ashamed and doesn’t want people to think she is a slut. The woman said she is embarrassed running into people from the party, where she said her assault occurred, for fear they may judge her. Like so many sexual assault victims, she is blaming the wrong person. “It’s very normal for victims to feel ashamed,” said Sally Sheppard, executive director at The Cottage Sexual Assault & Children’s Advocacy Center. Sheppard said victims feel responsible because society’s gut reaction to rape cases is to ask what the women did and what she wore to cause the crime. Instead of society asking what she did to deserve the assault, the woman should be asking why her fellow partiers didn’t come to her aid. If she sees someone who attended the party who knew or witnessed what happened, as she suspects they did, that person should feel ashamed. When the party attendees saw two men sandwiching a drunk

RHIANNON MCCLATCHEY

woman, why didn’t they rescue her? Her friend had some idea of what was happening to her, as she was passed out and possibly assaulted. “My friend thinks he tried to get me to give him head,” she was quoted as saying. At the very least, her friend knew she was intoxicated and vulnerable at a party with other drinkers and didn’t protect her. This student is not alone. Nationwide, over 70,000 students, between ages 18 and 24, survive alcohol-related sexual violence each year, according to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism’s report on college drinking. Alcohol increases the risk of sexual assault because an intoxicated person’s ability to interpret complex messages is reduced, leading to misinterpretation, according to a study by the Department of Justice. The study adds that some abusers use alcohol as an excuse to misbehave, and intoxicated victims have slower motor functions that reduce their ability to resist. It is actually more likely sexual assault will occur in a party environment, where we can watch out for each other, than in a dark alley. Eighty-five percent of sexual

assaults involve someone the victim actually knew and in places where they felt safe. It’s not our job to babysit our drunk friends, but we should look out for them nonetheless, so they may help us when we err in judgment. If you are going to drink, bring a designated friend. And if you are the friend, please watch out for vulnerable partiers. We should all practice personal responsibility, yet that doesn’t get us off the hook from intervening when we witness someone taking advantage of our friends. When she’s already drunk and a guy is forcing her head into his crotch, that is not the time to say she’s an adult and solely responsible for herself. Although the woman chose to drink, she did not agree to any sexual act, because intoxicated people cannot legally consent. I understand it may feel awkward to step in and play a parental role, but I would rather be a Debbie Downer than see my friend sexually assaulted. You should too. Ultimately the fault for sexual assault falls on the abuser. Yet when one in five college students are sexually abused, according to studies by the Center for Public Integrity, we all need to step up and look out for each other. — Rhiannon McClatchey is a senior from Atlanta majoring in magazines

Dawgs for Haiti pledging another $50,000

O

n Jan. 12, 2010, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti — the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. The quake sent shockwaves around the world in the form of heartbreaking images, statistics and stories. Thousands of people died. Those who survived were left without homes, food, electricity, running water or medicine. Our forgotten neighbors had fallen, and they reached out a collective and desperate hand, begging for the world’s support. Volunteer UGA launched the Dawgs for Haiti campaign to bring the University community together to answer the call to service. It began with the filling of e-mail and Facebook inboxes, challenging students and organizations to look beyond themselves and help a neighbor in need. The outpouring of assistance came with overwhelming speed and strength. The combined effort of over 110 student organizations and tens of thousands of students, alumni, faculty and administrators, shattered our initial, and lofty, $50,000 goal in less than three weeks. Our community rallied in record time to donate its time, money and resources to help the victims of this tragic disaster. For a brief moment in time, it was a trend across the world, as people everywhere selflessly pledged their support to the victims. After several weeks, however, the initial shock factor began to fade and so, too, did support for the disaster.

In its Feb. 9 edition, The Red & Black printed an article, “Pay Day: Eighteen of the 20 highestpaid Univ. employees received raises in 2009,” detailing pay differentials for top administrators and faculty between fiscal years 2008 and 2009. The fact that this article continues to be brought up everywhere from this week’s Open Mic session to a legislative hearing indicates that some readers may not have understood what the article was saying. The pay raises referenced in that story were from the salary pool authorized by the 2008 Georgia General Assembly and were effective Jan. 1, 2009. University employee salaries that normally would have been effective July 1, 2008, were delayed until Jan. 1, 2009, to save

Snowboarding Club not deterred by lack of slopes By ASHLEY STRICKLAND THE RED & BLACK Watching Shaun White execute his Double McTwist 1260 and make Winter Olympics history last week is enough to inspire anyone to try snowboarding. But for students in Georgia, the idea of hitting the slopes feels like a pipe dream. Disheartened snowboarding fans, meet your new group therapy. Snowboarding Club, a tightly-knit group of adventurous students, is ready to welcome a new wave of beginners and avid snowboarders alike. Justin Dambach, a junior telecommunications major, turned his passion for the sport into a reality for likeminded students. He started with one of his friends, Jack Henson, and now the two are president and vice president of the Snowboarding Club. Henson didn’t know anything about snowboarding — he only knew it was something he wanted to try. His first run could have

S Justin Dambach (left) and Jack Henson, president and vice president of the UGA Snowboarding Club, founded the group to learn and teach boarding skills, even though snow slopes are in short supply in Georgia. been a disaster, but with Dambach’s advice, Henson fared well. Once novices gain their balance, the real fun begins.

They start learning the signature moves of the sport — such as back flips and toe sides — and eventually move on to more advanced moves, or even

create their own, just like Shaun White. But in the beginning, it’s the simple goals that mean the most. “The hardest part about

snowboarding is doing the toe side and learning it in the beginning,� Dambach said. “I thought, ‘I’m going to do this toe side,’ but I went off the mountain backwards. On the way down, I hit a tree with my wrist back. I had to climb back up the mountain with a sprained wrist.� Snowboarding can be dangerous without proper training and advice. By hosting group trips to places such as West Virginia or nearby Sugar Beach, N. C., Dambach and Henson hope to help beginning boarders find their snow legs. During their last trip to Canaan Valley, the snowboarders drove for 32 hours to reach West Virginia, only to hit a snowstorm on the way and get stranded on the highway. Undeterred, they finished the trek and enjoyed some time on the slopes before Christmas. “We had a good time and we taught new people how to snowboard,� Dambach said. “That’s our goal. Usually by the end of

We would love to practice more, and show people how to do it, but it’s just not probable.� Group travel isn’t only helpful to teach beginners — it’s more practical for college budgets. By finding likeminded people at the University, more students can travel together, learn from each other and possibly realize a new dream. “Most people think, ‘A snowboarding club here in Georgia? That’s crazy,’� Henson said. “But it’s very invigorating. Snowboarding is so fun, and especially if you’ve never tried it, it’s a new experience.�

Offensive struggles plague Lady Dogs LIST: Humor based on By BEN BUSSARD THE RED & BLACK As the Georgia women’s basketball team prepares for its final regular season road game, questions surround the Lady Dogs’ offensive output. The No. 24 Lady Dogs will take on the South Carolina Gamecocks (13-13, 6-8) tonight looking to avenge a loss suffered at Stegeman Coliseum earlier this month. The team is in a midst of a skid on the offensive end of the floor, losing six of its last eight games. Georgia ranks 197th in the country in offensive production and is second-to-last in the SEC with a shooting percentage of 38.8. The Lady Dogs’ (20-7, 7-7) offensive woes have plagued head coach Andy Landers all year long. “The shooting has affected us

individually and when I say that, we probably don’t have one person who feels good about the way they’ve shot the ball in a long time,� Landers said. “So when I say individually, it’s collectively too because it’s everybody.� Getting the ball inside to freshman center Jasmine Hassell — who is averaging 9.7 points on 44 percent shooting in PHILLIPS Georgia’s last three games — would help the Lady Dogs’ shooting inefficiency. In addition to Hassell’s solid play, junior forward Porsha Phillips has averaged 10.3 points on 45 percent shooting in the last four Lady

Dogs contests. Landers has said repeatedly over the last couple of weeks that he wants to feed the ball more to Hassell and Phillips in hopes of getting better looks at the basket. “I just think that right now with Hassell and Porsha particularly, they’re shooting the highest percentages and I think it behooves us to get them more shots,� Landers said. When asked about what this offensive philosophy means to her offensive intensity, Phillips had a simple response. “I think I should post up more, be more aggressive down low,� Phillips said. “We have Hassell coming in, she’s a great offensive player. She’s probably the most aggressive post player we have and I think giving her the ball more will take pressure off of me to score.�

Dogs faced with short turnaround time By NICK PARKER THE RED & BLACK

FILE | The Red & Black

S Guard Ricky McPhee and his teammates are set to play two games in the next three days.

The Georgia men’s basketball team will get its first experience with schedule changes because of the SEC Network this week, as it will play two games in three days. As a result of the creation of the SEC Network last July, which broadcasts every SEC basketball game, the conference’s basketball teams face the unfamiliar grind of having games scheduled Thursdays and Saturdays of certain weeks of the season. That leaves little turnaround time for the second game of the week since SEC teams usually play Wednesday and Saturday

each week. Georgia will head to Vanderbilt tonight in search of its first road win, but then has only one day of preparation before a home date with Florida Saturday. “You know I’m probably a little different because a lot of people in the league have brought that up, but for the last nine years I was in a league where we went Thursday through Saturday every week, so it’s a setup that I’ve been accustomed to,” head coach Mark Fox said. “It certainly limits your preparation time for the second game and it’s a little unique to this league, but it’s one of the tradeoffs that I think we would all make to get the television

GEORGIA VS. VANDERBILT When: Tonight at 7 Where: Nashville, Tenn. More Information: The contest will air on ESPNU coverage that were going to get with the new TV deal.” The PAC-10 Conference also has teams play Thursdays and Saturdays. The Big 12 and Big East conferences have TV deals with ESPN which require their teams to play games Saturday and Monday games on occasion. But up until this season, the SEC hadn’t been part of that crowd. “It’s going to be exhausting, but we have to take

one game at a time and come in with the right mentality,” junior Chris Barnes said. “We can’t get too high and too low in our emotions in the game, and I think coach Fox is going to prepare us very well for this.” Typically in between games, Georgia would have time for at least one full practice and a lighter practice the day before a game. But under the new TV deal, the schedule resembles an NCAA tournament feel with weekend games just two days after the weekday games. “We’ll have a lot of work to do in between Thursday night and Saturday afternoon, and we’ll just have to be really efficient in how we do that,” Fox said.

GAME: Veazy able to be with Dogs ¢From Page 1 look at it, after we got through his deal, the only things we really gave up were the first hitters of the innings and guys just had to settle in.” The game didn’t stay tied for long, as five doubles helped fuel eight runs from the Bulldogs in the bottom of the seventh, giving Georgia the 11-3 win. Diamond Dog freshman Chance Veazey joined his teammates on the field before the first pitch for the pregame introductions. Veazey has been recovering at his home in Tifton from an October motor scooter accident on campus that left him paralyzed from the waist down. “I can’t really go into words to explain how great it felt to be back here,” Veazey said. “I’ve been to a few practices but this was my first game being in the dugout as a player, and it feels great to be back with the team and to feel a part of the team. I’m glad to be here.”
