Saturday class may pose problems for professors By LINDSEY COOK The Red & Black It’s Saturday in Athens — but instead of setting up the tailgate tent, on Jan. 29 and Feb. 12 students might have to break open their books. The University announced to faculty on Friday and to students Tuesday via e-mail that professors will have the option of holding class on two upcoming Saturdays. Monday, Wednesday, Friday classes can meet on Jan. 29 and Tuesday,
Thursday classes can meet on Feb. 12 if needed. Although Jere Morehead, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost, and Laura Jolly, vice president for instruction — who sent both e-mails — wrote in the e-mails that this plan will benefit students and faculty, other universities have not announced similar plans for makeup days. For example, Kennesaw State University has not followed suit. KSU will not be adding any extra
days into its calendar due to the unexpected snow days. However, similarly to the University, Kennesaw officials have decided to leave the job of making up classes and work to the professors. Ken Harmon, interim provost and vice president for academic affairs at Kennesaw, said he thinks many of the professors will decide to use distance learning — such as online resources — to catch up with material missed when the university was closed. The University also highlighted
this option in its e-mail to the faculty. Tom Jackson, vice president of public affairs addressed the unexpedness of the situation for the University. “This is extraordinarily unusual. The last time I remember missing this many days was in the 1970s,” Jackson said. He also pointed out professors have the option of scheduling class, so the issue is left up to them.

Dogs fall to Tennessee after last-second shot BY MITCH BLOMERT The Red & Black The buzzer rang and the shot went up and in for the game’s last two points — but not for the home team. Tennessee’s Brian Williams hit a buzzer-beater off a final-second rebound to edge the Georgia men’s basketball team 59-57 on Tuesday at Stegeman Coliseum amidst controversy that the shot was too late to be counted. With the clock running out, Volunteers forward Tobias Harris missed an attempt from the corner, but Williams pulled down the rebound and sunk it as the buzzer rang. “That was a difficult loss,” head coach Mark Fox said. “Tennessee made more plays than we did. They made one more, for sure.” Game officials reviewed the play after the buzzer — and the subsequent rush of celebrating Tennessee players — before declaring the shot within the remaining time. “He missed a shot. They got the rebound and put it in,” junior forward Trey Thompkins said. “There’s not much else to say about that.” The go-ahead bucket happened a minute after Georgia (13-4, 2-2) tied the game at 57 apiece when Dustin Ware hit a 3-pointer to keep the Bulldogs in a back-and-forth style game with six lead changes and no team leading by more than three in the second half. But Georgia was unable to secure two offensive rebounds in the final minute, giving the Vols the opportunity to end it at the buzzer. “We’re both very good teams,” junior guard Travis Leslie said. “That was a very hard-fought game from beginning to end.” Leslie and Gerald Robinson led the Bulldogs with 14 points each, while Trey Thompkins added 13. Harris and Scotty Hopson led Tennessee with 15 points. Williams added 10, hitting double figures with his game-winning shot. The first half featured hot flashes for both teams, with Tennessee drawing first. The Volunteers (11-6, 2-2) jumped out to an early advantage, leading by four after six minutes of play. Georgia countered with a 15-6 run of its own, tying the game 14-14 at the 10-minute mark led offensively by Thompkins and Leslie. The Bulldogs led by as much as seven before Tennessee caught fire again, anchored by a trio of consecutive 3-pointers by Harris. The Volunteers used the final six minutes of the half to erase Georgia’s lead, and entered the halftime with an 11-5 run and a 35-33 lead.

Across and around campus, closets, cabinets and boxes sit in various levels of fullness with lost objects. The most common of them? “Jackets, cell phones, umbrellas, credit cards a lot, wallets, keys,” said Azubuike Ekwueme. Ekwueme, a third year exercise and sports science major was speaking of the lost and found at Tate, where he works as an information desk attendant. However, the pattern holds for the campus’s other heavily frequented areas as well. When objects are found unattended anywhere on campus, ethical people often turn .hem in to the nearest lost and found. Lost and found spots are numerous, and can be anything from a desk drawer in a small academic building to an entire room designated for the purpose. Though it is mostly empty now, the main library’s lost and found will be full of unclaimed objects by the end of the semester, said Jonathan Purcell of the building’s security and facilities management. “We get lots of personal books, not necessarily textbooks or library books,” he said, also adding things like coffee mugs and sunglasses to the list of commonly lost objects. The library gets so many objects, its lost and found has separate boxes for common things such as student ID cards, jump drives, keys and sunglasses. It also has a large See FOUND, Page 3
With mouthguards in, Rollergirls prepare for season By ELAINE KELCH The Red & Black At first glance, the combination of rollerskates and a mouthguard seems to be the result of an overprotective parent and not the uniform of a sport. But throw in knee pads, elbow pads and a helmet and one may be mistaken for a rollergirl – a Classic City Rollergirl. Bootcamp, the Rollergirls’ annual recruiting period is underway at Skate Around USA tonight after kicking off on Monday. “We want as many [girls] as we can get,” said Sam Smith, president of the Classic City Rollergirls.

Originally, I wanted to get involved with officiating,” she said. “I went through Bootcamp and couldn’t let go.” The draw to stay with the Rollergirls after joining is something Lacey King, head of the media committee, can relate to. “I was kind of bored and didn’t really have anything better to do,” said King when describing what convinced her to join the Rollergirls. “I

Campus still ‘home’ for alumni
CRIME NOTEBOOK Student arrested after marijuana smell was reported
By TIFFANY STEVENS The Red & Black After spending years obtaining undergraduate, graduate and Ph.D. degrees at the University, Nichole Ray graduated in 2007 with a doctorate in adult education. Now, she continues to walk the campus as a professor in Women’s Studies. “Really, I never left,” she said, laughing. “I love the University of Georgia. Doors opened up here and I walked through them.” Ray is one of few professors who decided to return to teach at the University after graduating. She is also considered a “triple dog” — someone who completed a bachelor’s, master’s and Ph.D. degrees at the University. “There was only about a year between me leaving after my undergrad and coming back,” Ray said. For some professors, the decision of returning is weighed both by the prestige of the potential job and the benefit to nearby family members. James Cobb, professor of history at the University and also a triple dog, said both the notoriety of the history department and the campus’ proximity to elderly family members factored into his decision to return from a teaching job at the University of Tennessee. “It’s a little complicated, like anyone in my position will tell you,” he said. “There was the fact that the Georgia history department was becoming one of the best to teach at. Just the trajectory of the University — the fact that all departments were going up — made it attractive.” Cobb said he doesn’t know of many other professors that have followed the same path that he did. “Some people have the idea that they could never come back, because they’d feel like a student or work with professors they had,” he said. “I guess it’s the sense some people have that you can’t go home.” But Cobb said his past as a student at the University has never hindered him as a professor. “I have a sense of déja vu all the time, but never had the sense that I needed to act like a student,” Cobb said. “The first office I had was the same room where I took my Ph.D. oral exam, so that came to mind a few times. I consider it very fortunate it worked out the way it did

We used to go every day and get milkshakes. It sounds really granola, but that’s what we did.” Both Ray and Cobb said they think their time spent as students at the University makes it easier to relate to the experiences of the students in their classes. “I choose to think it does. It comes up enough in evaluations that I think it does make a difference,” Cobb said. “I certainly use it in teaching in the sense of using my experiences to relate to where they are in their lives, in addition to relating it to historical events we may be discussing at the time.” Though Ray said she may teach at other locations in the future, she appreciates the time she’s spent at the University. “I love my job, but I’m not wed and bound to Athens,” Ray said. “But I grew up here, from 18 to 33, and I have no regrets.”
Pearls Before Swine®
A University student was arrested Monday and charged with possession of marijuana after police investigated a report of the smell of marijuana in Russell Hall, according to a University Police report. Officers investigated the dorm room of Alexander James Fitchett, 18, at approximately 11:30 p.m. after confirming that the odor of burning marijuana was closest to his room. When asked if he had smoked marijuana, Fitchett told police that he had not and that he had been sleeping. “I gave them permission to search the room,” Fitchett said. “I told them my roommate wasn’t there, and so they just searched my side.” Police found three multi-colored pipes, one wooden pipe and a plastic case with suspected marijuana inside a red case in Fitchett’s desk drawer, according to the report. Officers also found a fake California ID issued to Hamilton Morris Brock in Fitchett’s wallet. Fitchett was also charged with possession of a fake ID and possession of drug-related objects. Fitchett was then transported to Clarke County Jail. While being transported, he told officers that he used the
Documents fake ID to purchase Southern Comfort whiskey and that he had smoked marijuana two or three hours prior to their arrival, according to the report. “I wasn’t expecting them to come,” Fitchett told The Red & Black Tuesday. “I have my court date, but I haven’t heard anything from the University yet.” Smell of marijuana reported in Creswell Hall University Police responded to a report of the odor of burning marijuana in Creswell Hall on Saturday at approximately 9 p.m., according to a University Police report. Officers positioned themselves outside the building in case anything was thrown out the window prior to searching the building. The officer noticed a faint smell when entering the reported hallway, but the occupants of the suspected dorm room were not present at the time, according to the police report. Officers were unable to determine the location of the smell, according to the report. — Compiled by Tiffany Stevens

SGA proposes revisions for tailgating restrictions By KATHRYN INGALL The Red & Black Tuesday night, the Student Government Association made revisions to its elections code and voted to propose changes to tailgating restrictions on North Campus. The tailgating resolution suggested returning the tables and tents banned last year. Franklin College Senator Will Burgess highlighted policies of schools such as Ole Miss that allow tailgating and protect the more historic parts of the University’s campus. The senators also voted to revise the elections code. The revisions will serve to increase campaign funding and implement financial disclosures for future SGA elections. Funds for SGA executive campaigns were increased from $700 to $1,400 and party financing increased from $600 to $1,200. The new financial dis-
closures must be submitted 24 hours before the start of each campaign period and will be open and available for the public to review. “This will give you guys a little more money to work with, but we want a little more detail of where it’s going,” said Clay Knowles, SGA attorney general. The shortened campaign schedule will begin Wednesday, Feb. 23 and end Tuesday, March 1. “This is one of our only public events on campus, and I think the organization should get our message out without souring the voters,” Burgess said. On Thursday, Jan. 20, SGA will host a roundtable discussion about possible changes to the HOPE scholarship. Representative Len Walker, chairman of the Georgia House Higher Education Committee will be there to participate in the discussion. It will take place at 8 p.m. in room 102 of the MLC.

▲ The University transitioned to eLearning Commons in January 2010. However, some professors have yet to incorporate it into class.
Not all professors use eLC for classes By RYAN BLACK The Red & Black Jan. 1, 2010 marked more than just another turning over of the calendar last year. For the University, this served as the date eLearning Commons officially replaced WebCT as the online learning management system used by students and professors alike. However, not all professors have made the transition, for varying reasons. David Smilde, a sociology professor, uses a listserv for class announcements, his website for the class syllabus and Powerpoint slides and a Gmail address for paper submissions. “This system is more user friendly and reliable than WebCT was when I used it,” he said. “Everyone knows how to send an e-mail and check a webpage.” Though he has not tried eLC yet, he said that is certainly a possibility in the future. “It looks like a big improvement over WebCT, and I will have to think about whether it offers something my current system doesn’t without a loss in user interface and reliability,” he said. Another professor, Paul Quick, said he has not utilized eLC in his English classes because it does not offer what he needs. Instead, he uses <emma>, which was developed by the English Department at the University to help firstyear composition students improve their writing. “I want students to use a writing process that includes exploration of a topic, free writing, drafting a working thesis, getting feedback on ideas from fellow students, drafting, getting feedback from other students on multiple drafts, revising, editing and proofreading,” Quick said. “Neither eLC nor Sakai, an open-source LMS we experimented with two years ago, has the capabilities of easily and logically employing that writing process as part of its designed functionality.” Sherry Clouser, coordinator of instructional and distance technologies at the University’s Center for Teaching and Learning, headed the committee to implement eLC when it was announced WebCT would be replaced. “In my role at the Center for Teaching and Learning, one of my goals is to help each instructor I work with find the best ways to help students accomplish their course objectives,” she said. Alan Katz, administrative financial director for Enterprise Information Technology Services, said the initial cost to set up eLC was $543,000, and the system’s annual operating cost is $545,000. Quick said when it comes down to it, eLC is a direct reflection of our economic system in the United States. “eLC, which is a Blackboard product, is a marketgenerated product,” he said. “They supply what most institutions are looking for, which is not a writing LMS. With no demand for the features built-in to <emma>, they just don’t have an incentive to develop those features. In the end, this is just capitalism.”
cabinet for clothing and a special bookshelf for personal books. Although most lost objects are unremarkable, occasionally some will be turned in that raise an eyebrow due to their strangeness or value. “Sometimes we’ll get, like, one shoe,” said Alex Rackley, a third year international affairs major and desk assistant at Creswell Hall. “We have one glove back there that gets a lot of comments.” Donika Harallambi, a cashier at Bolton Dining Hall, commented on the expensiveness of some of the things she’s had returned to her. “One day we got a really nice ring turned in. We put up a sign in the lobby, but still no one claimed it,” she said. Harallambi said she’s seen textbooks left, some new and worth $100, with the receipts still inside. Jamie Luescher, student coordinator and aquatics manager at Tate, said she’s seen several iPads and iPhones turned in recently. In addition to objects such as jewelry and wallets, University police Lt. Eric Dellinger said, “We get just about anything you can think of.” Police get an especially large amount of objects. Concerned citizens often turn things in directly to police, and lost and founds across campus often turn valuable objects in to the police department if the item goes unclaimed after a few days. Dellinger and almost everyone else asked said that they make an effort to return objects to their owners if possible, especially if there is some kind of identification on the items Harallambi said the dining halls also try to contact owners. He offered preventative advice to students. “Put your name on things; books whatever,” she said. “If we have your name, we’ll e-mail you, no problem.” The retrieval rate of lost objects varies depending on the place the objects are lost and whether there is any iden-
tification on the items. Harallambi estimated that only about 60 percent of things turned in to her at Bolton were picked up by their owners Leuscher, on the other hand, said that at least 80 percent of things at Tate were eventually picked up. Dellinger reinforced the value of putting a name on valuable objects, saying that the claim rate is “usually a little under half, unless there’s identification, in which case it’s closer to 90 percent.” If an object goes unclaimed for a certain amount of time, it eventually must be gotten rid of. With no uniform, campus-wide lost and found policy, the amount of time an object sits in lost and found and what is done with it varies. Most objects that overstay their welcomes, especially clothes, are donated to charity organizations such as Goodwill or the Potter’s House. Books are also given to charity or recycled. Unclaimed credit cards, IDs and sensitive objects are shredded. Useless objects are thrown away. The lost and found in Tate is cleared out roughly every 3 months. The ones in dining halls are usually done twice yearly. Anything unclaimed in the library is held until the end of each semester. “Unless it starts to smell. Then we have to get rid of it,” Purcell said. The University bus system’s lost and found hangs on to objects longer than most other places on campus. “It gets cleared out about once per year,” said Charlie Burgamy, a fourth year sociology major and bus driver. “We’ve got a closet full of stuff down there nobody claims.” University Police only have to hold something for 90 days before giving it away or destroying it. At that time, however, the person who turned it in has an opportunity to claim it for him or her self unless it’s highly personal and sensitive, such as a credit card or wallet. “If after 90 days, an item you return hasn’t been claimed, it can legally be yours,” Dellinger said.

We can’t always plan our future I
have a planner. I like knowing what will happen before it does. I am always early in case something goes wrong — just to give myself enough time to fix it. On exactly Dec. 27 at 11:50 p.m., I was supposed to be boarding a plane to Israel for a campus media seminar that had been in my planner for months. However, my plans turned out quite differently when the word “cancelled” popped up next to my flights time after time. Among thousands of others, I was stranded in a land where families were sleeping on the ground and where McDonald’s was running out of food — also known as the JFK Airport. I found myself sleeping at various airports — not knowing whether I would ever make it out of the United States, all thanks to the blizzard that hit the northeast when I was supposed to be happily in the air watching movies and eating airplane food. Two days and hundreds of desperate attempts later, I was able to get on stand-by for a flight. The plane was supposed to leave New York at 6 p.m … but of course it was delayed until 8 the next morning. But it didn’t matter — I was finally on a plane. Prior to my trip, I was nervous about going to a country I had never been to before and with people I hadn’t met. But that proved to be the least of my worries when my only priority quickly became just to get on a plane to Israel. When the plane took off, I realized how so many of us plan our lives and expect all those plans to go accordingly. And when they don’t, we panic. Your reality can change in a second. The people at the check-in counter waiting to get on stand-by became my best

Polina Marinova friends and people sleeping on cardboard in the food court became the norm. When I finally made it to Israel, we went to the West Bank. We visited a Jewish settlement and spoke with people at an army base at the border of Israel and Lebanon. All of the Israeli speakers we met said the same thing — no one really plans for the future. Most citizens there live in the moment. A war could break out tomorrow or a rocket could explode on their house. A rocket exploded near a kindergarten schoolyard in a town close to Gaza called Sderot a week before we arrived. In that town, we saw a playground with a castle and a long caterpillar tunnel — only to find out that both the castle and the caterpillar were bomb shelters. In my time in Israel, it made me realize how we just can’t plan for the future. Our lives can be turned upside down at any given moment. Bottom line — the future is not a guarantee. Though it’s great to have a general plan, it’s useless to plan out every second of the day. Sometimes we need to realize that living in the moment and being spontaneous can allow us to lead more fulfilling lives — rather than getting disappointed when something doesn’t go as intended. Sleeping on the floor at the airport is only temporary, but having a rocket destroy your home is not. — Polina Marinova is the associate news editor for The Red & Black
E-mail and letters from our readers
Reconsider our gun laws While much of the reaction to the Tucson, Ariz. shootings has revolved around the vitriolic nature of our political discourse, it seems odd that gun regulation hasn’t been more widely discussed. Of course, when our Congress is perpetually in fear of NRA wrath, I suppose it is naïve of me to think that a bloodbath would change anything. The suspected shooter was considered mentally unfit for the military and community college, yet had no problem purchasing a semi-automatic handgun. He also obtained a 33-round magazine, which gave him additional time before reloading. I cannot imagine how being able to legally acquire what is essentially

a slow-moving machine gun has anything to do with individual freedom, let alone self-defense. The gun debate should be seen and treated as a public health challenge. Banning automatic weaponry is obvious, as these weapons are designed to kill many — and to kill them quickly. Waiting periods, improved background checks and the ban of oversized magazines are also crucial. As gun advocates so often say, “Guns don’t kill people; people do.” This is true, but guns sure make it easier. Alan Reese Senior, Savannah Music performance and Music theory

Mission trips or poverty tourism? C
hristian students often use spring break to jet set around the world for mission trips. And this year doesn’t appear to be different. One of the most popular is the Wesley Foundation’s trip to Jamaica. I called the Wesley Foundation to ask how many people had signed up to go to on the trip. Exactly 200 people had signed up. The eightday journey costs $1,350. So you don’t have to pull out a calculator, that’s a whopping total of $270,000 spent on one of the Wesley Foundation’s seven advertised mission trips during spring break. Students who went to Jamaica last year said they accomplished the following: conducted vacation Bible schools, painted murals in a slum, did yard work, cleared out woods and garbage, dug a ditch for a water pump, talked to people at AIDS hospitals and hung out with orphans for about an hour a day. They also built a house, which one of my informants told me cost at most $2,000. Great, right? Let’s think about economics for a moment. Six shallow wells could be dug in Kenya, and 100 children could be sponsored through World Vision for a year. Five Palestinian children with heart defects could be provided with transportation, surgery, room and board and recuperation

through Save A Child’s Heart in Israel. Fifty sheep could be bought from Heifer International for villages all over the world. And after adding the costs of all of these ventures, we still would not have spent half of $270,000. At some point, we must ask the question: “Is what we are doing there worth it?” I understand many students going on the mission want to help others and meet people with similar interests. But going abroad isn’t the only option. If you stayed in Athens, you could both meet friends and help those who are not as well off. Athens PBJs, a homeless ministry started by University students, meets every Sunday by The Grill downtown. For that matter, there are homeless communities all around Athens. Or perhaps you could become a mentor to a middle school or high school student. Volunteer at a school. Organize a 5K. Become active in YoungLife. And if it’s souls you’re really

Bulldog Bucks an inefficient waste of time
ould someone explain to me why Bulldog Bucks exists? The Bulldog Bucks website calls it an “online account-based debit card program.” That’s nice, but I already have one of those. It’s called my bank account. In fact, my bank’s account is even better. There, my money is insured, and they even pay me interest to put it there. And my debit card is accepted in a lot more places than my ID card, including nearly everywhere on campus. Even if I can’t use my debit card, I can go withdraw cash — another thing Bulldog Bucks doesn’t offer. In addition, my parents can still put money in my bank account, something which can no longer be done at Bulldog Bucks without a lot of hassle. My bank also offers 24-hour assistance and a

after, we go to the No. 1 party school in America for Christ’s sake. You don’t have to be a genius to help close by. Stay right in your backyard, and you will be able to nurture the community long-term and avoid the newly-in-vogue TSA groping. If you must go abroad, why not spend $150 to go on one of the University’s Alternative Spring Break trips? The University sends out 19 groups all over the eastern United States — from Detroit to Appalachia to Miami. One group is even packing up for a road trip around Georgia to assist the immigrant population. It’s acting like Christ for a fraction of the price. Let’s face it. Jamaica is a vacation. Two out of the eight days are travel days. One is a free day. Telling your family, friends and church you need money for a mission trip is a pretty big stretch. Especially when that money comes out of the congregation’s tithes. If you’re going to Jamaica with 200 of your closest friends for spring break and happen to build a church while you’re down there, that’s fine. But call it poverty tourism. Not a mission trip.

Mark Miller detailed online account of my funds. It seems to me there’s no reason to consciously choose the Bucks over a bank, especially since most banks offer free student accounts and other incentives to new customers. I’d be more in a liveand-let-live mood if Bulldog Bucks was better at staying out of my way. But unfortunately, it’s not just useless. It’s inconvenient. I remember being perpetually annoyed as a freshman when I did laundry (which, admittedly, was rare) because I had to use my Bulldogs Bucks to pay for it.

Plaza or going commando one more day. Guess which one I usually went with. Even now it frustrates me when I want to print something on campus. It’s actually more convenient for me to go all the way to the Print and Copy Center at Tate than bother trying to put money on a card the printer may or may not read. What really drives me nuts is how inefficient these methods are compared to a simple cointaking machine. The University is surrounded by coin laundromats. Although these machines might — somehow — be lower-tech than the dorm-based ones that run on card swipes, they are more convenient. It’s easier to use the change you have in your pocket than to constantly keep up with your Bucks balance. And a change machine would be a handy fix for those of us too cool to
hang on to their nickels and dimes. A possible compromise? Rig up the campus printers and laundry machines in a similar way to the Coke machines and have them accept both Bulldog Bucks and hard money. Yes, Bulldog Bucks does offer a featured merchants service, which provides discounts for students at a couple places around Athens. Still, that’s not enough to justify its existence, especially since coupons work just as well. Bulldog Bucks must expand its responsibilities — or it must be replaced by more useful systems. As it is now, there’s nothing it does that can’t be done better by a bank and a few simple coin slots. — Mark Miller is a senior from Griffin and is an online copy editor for The Red & Black

Flicker turns down the amps Poetry, short stories featured By CHRIS MILLER The Red & Black There’s no question that Athens is, and will continue to be, a music town. But that’s not to say that there isn’t room for other art forms too. “I know the big hook in a lot of Athens is music, and I appreciate music and I love music, but there’s gotta be something else sometimes,” said Christopher Ingham, local musician, writer and kindergarten paraprofessional. Ingham organized tonight’s glimpse into to the little-mentioned Athens literary scene, “Buy What I Say.” “That’s kind of what I’m trying to do, get a little variety, a little spice for Athens,” Ingham said. The show will feature poetry, short stories, Ingham’s own hip hop group Turnip and local funk group Booty, just to round out the night with a little dancing, Ingham said. Ingham, who’s spent much of his eight years in Athens weaving his way about the music scene in bands such as Christopher With/Without His Liver, said the whole idea for this literary thing started with help from the best person to get help from: his mom. With acts such as buying him vinyl records when CDs were cool and taking him to punk shows as a kid, Ingham said his mother played a pivotal role in
his ability to take an idea and believe in it. “She really helped me out to becoming my own person, or at least an independent person. Like, I don’t have to have an iPhone now, I don’t have a Twitter account, it’s OK, it’s not weird, even though it is a little alienating,” Ingham said. So when he wrote a short story for his mother’s birthday a few years back, he was struck with an idea and made it a reality. “It inspired the idea that I can just sit in my room for an hour instead of playing my guitar and I can just write, and publish that, and that be how I share my art or medium or what I’m into at the moment,” he said. Next thing you know, Ingham and friends are putting on poetry readings at house parties, underground venues and eventually, late last year, right in the heart of downtown. “We set it up like more of a rock show,” Ingham said of the last show, also at Flicker Theatre & Bar. “We didn’t put out the chairs or anything, so people were standing and then half way through the poetry reading, people started sitting on the floor and getting more quiet and listening hard.” Considering even the most raucous musical acts downtown are usually drowned out by crowd murmur, how could this possibly be explained? “I think the Flicker shows always go really well because it’s such a quirky event for a lot of people,” Ingham said. “They’re so used to coming down and watching punk music or some loud thing, and it’s like, ‘Well,
‘BUY WHAT I SAY’ When: Tonight at 8 Where: Flicker Theatre & Bar Price: Free Featuring: Poetry, short stories, hip-hop and the funk group Booty we’re gonna hang out and listen to each other talk for a bit.’” Kaleb Cribb, a poet and literary compatriot of Ingham’s, has participated in many of these readings, and said these events are indicative of a movement occurring beneath the music soaked streets of Athens. “The underground side of it started progressing through Flicker and a few other places that would host open mics, but there’s also a really incredible poetry scene developing right now in Athens,” Cribb said. Although growing, the poetry scene here still won’t support one financially, Cribb noted. “But at the same time it’s frustrating on that side of things it’s also very uplifting, because when the scene is small and when the group of writers that you surround yourself with is so tiny, it always seem to focus the energy and concentrate the poetry so much better,” he said. And though frustratingly overshadowed by music at times, Cribb and Ingham agreed poetry and music coexist naturally and can drive each other, from the angle of both artist and audience. “I definitely think the music scene here adds to the poetry scene, because when a town like Athens can champion an art form like music, other art forms fall right in line and follow suit,” Cribb said.

SKATE: Traveling in game plan for girls ➤ From Page 1 didn’t expect to get as involved as I did.” The 2011 season for the Rollergirls will be especially significant for two reasons. First, the Rollergirls are one of 12 new leagues to join the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association’s apprentice program, a worldwide organization that spans across the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. Second, the Rollergirls will travel a lot more. “This is our first year with more than one traveling team,” Smith said. “It’ll be different just by the sheer number of bouts.” A bout, for the uninitiated, is the Derby version of a game. Split into two 30-minute periods, Derby is played in two-minute segments called jams.
Within each jam, each team — composed of three blockers, one pivot and one jammer — score points every time their jammer makes a lap through the pack after the first goround. It is as simple and as complex as a football line of scrimmage. But in Derby both the offense and defense are playing simultaneously. The physical toll of Derby is worth it, according to the Rollergirls, because the sport gives more off the track than on it. “Most skaters only skate for three to four years, and peoples’ lives change in that time in a town like Athens,” Smith said. “But no matter what’s going on in your life or at work, when you come [to a Rollergirls’ practice or bout] you forget about everything else.”
