OIL SPILL SYMPOSIUM
By ADINA SOLOMON The Red & Black
Disaster prompts campus event
You are GETTING SLEEPY
By DALLAS DUNCAN The Red & Black When a disaster strikes what is the first move — fight or flight? Samantha Joye chose to fight. As thousands were forced to leave their homes on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, the University professor began conducting research on the oil plume from the Deepwater Horizon explosion in May 2010. Joye was one of the many scientists, government officials and journalists working in the Gulf following the oil spill. Beginning today, scientists, government officials, the media and the public are coming together at the University to decipher what the communication problems were and how they can be resolved in the future, should another disaster occur. “It started just from Mandy Joye being so involved in the response,” said Jill Gambill, public relations coordinator for the Georgia Sea Grant Program and one of the coordinators of the Gulf oil spill symposium taking place this week. “We had a broad range of people to bring into the discussion.” Joye, a professor in the school of marine programs, said she was actually out in the Gulf when plans for See SPILL, Page 7

Athens hypnotist stresses importance of believing Michael barone | The Red & Black
▲ After suffering from severe fibromyalgia for years, Kay Russell took advice and tried hypnosis, which she said changed her life. By CASEY ECHOLS For The Red & Black Hypnotist Kay Russell is a true believer in mind over matter. Once afflicted with severe fibromyalgia, Russell said she has not had a flare-up since 2005 and credits this to an alternative form of healing that does not include any medication: hypnosis. “Fibromyalgia is a type of arthritis,” Russell said. “You get the kind of pain you would get if you had a really bad case of the flu; you hurt all over. It will ruin your day. A friend of mine who is a hypnotist suggested [hypnosis] to me.” When Russell’s body became unable to handle pain medications anymore she decided it was time to
try something new. “I was open minded about it, I never had it done before,” Russell said. “But I thought, ‘I’m willing to try this because I’ve tried all the medical things that my doctor had said for me to try.’” A trance that is elicited by a state of relaxation in which the patient’s subconscious is receptive to positive suggestions, Russell sought hypnosis treatment and said she rapidly saw her symptoms recede. “I wasn’t hurting, it happened immediately and I was never hypnotized again for it, it was like a miracle for me,” Russell said. With her success in hypnosis, she found a new calling in her life.
Want to ship breakables? Need packing peanuts? Look no further than the Beta Theta Pi fraternity lawn. On Sunday, Beta Theta Pi received a littering citation, according to a University Police report. “A large number of packing peanuts” were reportedly stored in the rear parking lot of the Beta Theta Pi house on Milledge Avenue. The packing peanuts were then blown to “private yards in the area” and to Broad Street, Harris Street and South Church Street, according to the document. The packing peanuts were used as “simulated snow.” University Police turned over the follow-up investigation to the Athens-Clarke County community protection division, which first got involved Friday when contacted by the fire marshal, said John Spagna, ACC division administrator. Spagna said the fire marshal was investigating Beta Theta Pi because the fraternity’s house was full of packing peanuts, which is a fire danger. The fire marshal told the fraternity members to remove the peanuts, Spagna said. The peanuts were then bagged and put in Beta Theta Pi’s parking lot, where the bags were somehow ripped open and the peanuts were “strewn” into adjoining properties, Spagna said.
ONLINE Documents The community protection division went to the fraternity house Monday and gave Beta Theta Pi the rest of the day to clean up the peanuts. “We issued a warning to the fraternity and told the fraternity to clean up the litter,” Spagna said. He said the division will go out Tuesday to see if the fraternity cleaned up. “If they haven’t, they can be issued another citation [Tuesday] for still having litter on their property,” Spagna said. Matt Hobert, fraternity president, declined comment. Beta Theta Pi was also involved in the reported stealing of an inflatable chicken owned by Zaxby’s on Oct. 4, 2010, from the yard of the Georgia Center. Fraternity members have since been subject to investigations from the Office of Student Conduct. University students Timothy Rood and Ryan Guilbault — who admitted to taking the chicken — were both sent letters on Dec. 14, 2010, from Beau Seagraves, assistant director for student conduct.

The recent strides made by the Georgia men’s basketball team haven’t gone unnoticed at the ticket booth. When the Bulldogs (14-4, 3-2) host No. 23 Florida tonight, there’s a solid chance that a packed Stegeman Coliseum will be watching — a sellout crowd if ticket sales match the last three home games. Georgia has enjoyed full-capacity crowds of 10,523 for all three SEC home matchups this season, an effect triggered by the team’s marked improvement and chances as a possible SEC contender. “Our crowd has been awesome,” Bulldogs head coach Mark Fox said. “Our crowd has created the atmosphere that college basketball is all about. We appreciate our fans a great deal, and they’ve brought the energy back to Georgia basketball a great deal, and to our building. And we can’t thank them enough — it’s been terrific.” The Bulldogs can take the SEC East lead with a win tonight, a spot held by Florida (15-4, 4-1). Should Georgia win, both teams

And with sellout crowds filling the arena at what now appears to be a nightly basis, fan support has never been as helpful. “We really love to come out and play hard and give our fans a good show,” senior forward Jeremy Price said. “When they show up we try to give them a good performance so they come back and see some more games.” And the fans keep coming back to fill the stands. Georgia enters the game with a 9-1 record at home, fifth-best in the SEC. Only Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Arkansas and Alabama have better home records, all undefeated on

their own courts. Even with six more home games remaining on the schedule, the Bulldogs have already sold out more games than all of the 2009-10 season, when there were two sellouts. The two sellouts were both against teams ranked in the Associated Press top 10 at that point of the season, including the Bulldogs’ 78-63 upset victory over then eighthranked Tennessee. “Our fans have helped us win games, it’s not a question,” Fox said. “It helped us last year. We had some sellouts last year. They lift our team, and that’s important because the great teams in college basketball have that advantage, and it’s good to see that we’re starting to create that.” But neither Mississippi State nor this year’s visiting Tennessee team were ranked in the top 10, let alone ranked at all when they visited Athens this year. Both games still sold out. Attendance for Georgia home games against non-ranked SEC opponents last season never cracked 10,000, surpassed 9,000 only once See CROWD, Page 8

With it’s uncontrollable cell growth and fatal diagnosis, cancer is supposed to dampen your spirits and poison your body, but for some the experience is different. Jack McDermott, a sophomore from Atlanta, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in May 2010. “I started seeing double vision during finals week, so I went to the doctor to get an MRI of my brain, and they discovered that I had a brain tumor,” McDermott said. He found himself in brain surgery fighting for his life. “I had emergency shunt to stop the swelling of the optic nerve. Had I not had that surgery I would have gone blind in a couple of days,” McDermott said. McDermott’s struggles didn’t end there. In June, he went to Duke Hospital to have the tumor taken out. After surgery, he continued his battle to recover. “Whenever I moved my head around, I was in excruciating pain, and then after a day I could walk,” he said. “The hardest part was walking around and not being able to look without turning my whole body.” Though McDermott dealt with physical pain, he didn’t let the cancer beat him emotionally. “Emotionally, I didn’t think about it,” McDermott said. “Three weeks after the surgery I had an acting internship, so I was more focused on doing something everyday. It’s so much negative energy, you can’t think why is this happening to me.” McDermott had follow-up MRIs in October and December of 2010 and both were clean. Now, McDermott is a huge advocate for Relay for Life. The University was the first collegiate Relay for Life. And with 17 committees, McDermott — along with several other students — promote the survivor committee. “I joined mid-September of 2010,” McDermott said. “It’s basically a committee for anyone who has known people or is a cancer survivor and is really passionate about others sur-

viving cancer as well.” Sarah Poe, a senior from Rome, is also a member of the survivor committee. As a child, she witnessed her mother battle Phase 4 breast cancer. “There were only certain things that me and my siblings knew and understood,” Poe said, “We did know she was young, breast cancer patients are usually in their 50s to 60s and she was in her 30s.” Poe’s mother is now cancer-free. Throughout her mother’s illness, Poe witnessed her mother’s courage. “It made me see her strength and her zest for life which has rubbed off on me, and my mom is my best friend,” Poe said. “I couldn’t imagine life without her.” Katie Wood, a sophomore from Alpharetta, admired the strength and patience of her aunt as Wood watched her battle breast cancer. “She never once asked ‘why me?’”
she said. Wood’s aunt became cancer free in 2008, and Wood now serves on the survivor committee with McDermott and Poe. “Dealing with family members and friends afflicted with cancer makes you realize how strong the human spirit can be,” Wood said. “When faced with something as terrifying and as seemingly insurmountable as a life-threatening illness, people somehow rise above it and fight with true courage and grace.” The survivor committee under Relay for Life strives to make each survivor feel special. They make dinners for survivors, share stories and host the annual Survivor Lap, as well as many other festivities. McDermott, Poe and Wood represent those who struggle with or have beaten cancer. “It basically told me that I can do anything. I was strong and made it through that, and it’s incredible. It’s amazing. If I can make it through emotionally and physically and survive a deadly disease like that, I can do anything,” McDermott said. “It’s made me a much harder worker, and it said to me that there’s nothing I can’t do.”

A rape was reported to the University Health Center Saturday, according to a University Police report. A sexual assault occurred Saturday morning at about 3 a.m. at East Campus Village, the report states. The unknown victim “advised University Health Center personnel that she was acquainted with the person that assaulted her,” according to the document. The victim “did not wish to meet with law enforcement,” according to the report. “The police have never been in contact with that particular victim,” said University Police Lt. Eric Dellinger. Dellinger said campus officials must notify University Police of a rape — even if the victim refuses to talk with police. “We do the best report we can,” Dellinger said.

Smell of marijuana leads to arrest University student Ryan Vincent Rivera, 19, was charged with possession of less than an ounce of marijuana and possession of drug-related objects Friday night, according to a University Police report. A resident assistant at East Campus Village told police she noticed the smell of “burning” marijuana from room 240. An officer was dispatched to ECV Building 1516 in reference to the smell. The officer knocked on the door of room 240 and when he received no answer, the officer went to room 241, according to the report. After the officer entered, he made contact with Rivera, who “admitted that he had been smoking marijuana and that there was some marijuana on his side of the room,” according to the document. Rivera reportedly gave the officer a “red and black weight supplement canister” from his desk drawer, which contained two plastic baggies of suspected marijuana, two glass pipes and burnt roaches along with pieces of burned and unburned marijuana. Rivera told The Red & Black Monday, he was in the shower when the officer came to his room, but the officer waited for him to come out of the bathroom. “If you are in the shower when the cops show up, they let you finish the shower,” Rivera said. “That was pretty nice of them.” After giving the officer the marijuana, Rivera was arrested and transported to Clarke County Jail. — Compiled by Adina Solomon

A University student was charged with public drunkenness Friday night, according to a University Police report. Lauren Marie Purcell, 21, was reportedly seen by an officer on Spring Street “squatting by the sidewalk with her dress pulled above her waist” and “making no attempt to cover her lower half as she urinated” while pedestrians walked by. Purcell began to walk away when the officer approached her and Zachary Morgan, a male accompanying Purcell. Both Purcell and Morgan said “they had consumed significant quantities of alcohol,” according to the report. Morgan provided his driver’s license, and Purcell “repeatedly reached in her bra and pulled out cash and condoms,” according to the document. Purcell eventually provided another person’s license. The license was owned by Morgan, Purcell told The Red & Black on Monday. Purcell gave Morgan’s name as part of her own and told the officer her name when he asked for her birthday. “It was my 21st birthday, and I made a

SLEEPY: Hypnotist helps young and old ➤ From Page 1 Today, Russell is both a certified hypnotist and instructor, which took 100 hours worth of class time to complete, as well as the owner of her own hypnosis business located off Macon Highway. “I had to take training through the National Guild of Hypnotists to become a certified instructor,” Russell said. She also has a certificate in Neuro-linguistic programming, a form of “waking hypnosis” that builds confidence and can be especially helpful for public-speaking, she said. “Something about hypnosis people don’t realize is that it is completely voluntary,” Russell said. “A
person can’t just be hypnotized if they don’t believe in it or are skeptical. You must have the want to change otherwise it won’t work.” Russell sees a widevariety of clients ranging from those who want to quit smoking, lose weight or pass a test, and those trying to reduce chronic pain. She works with a variety of people, with clients as young as seven years old, and has seen many success stories come her way. “I hypnotized one child who had a traumatic event occur in gymnastics and had a sort-of mental block about it,” Russell said. “Hypnosis helped her overcome this.”
Although many view hypnotism as a mystical altered state of mind, Russell insists that it is a natural occurrence that happens multiple times a day throughout our mind. “Think of when you are driving down the road on a familiar route and you zone out for a moment. That’s a state of hypnosis,” Russell said. With various induction methods available, Russell stresses the need to give hypnosis a legitimate effort before making a judgement. “With hypnosis, it’s your mind that’s helping you,” Russell said. “The hypnotist is a guide to help you focus and achieve your own goals. You have to believe in it first.”

Bachmann hurts political rhetoric I keep waiting for Michele Bachmann to unhinge her jaw and swallow a baby whole. With skin dyed and tucked away, wrinkled just as it crinkles around her startlingly blue eyes, it may be true that Rep. Bachmann (Minn.-R) doesn’t bear any overt resemblance to this lizard overlord or that Borg queen — but just wait. It’s when Bachmann starts to speak that she shows her teeth. Consider what she said in one of her appearances on Chris Matthew’s “Hardball:” “On college campuses … you find people who hate America,” she said. “And unfortunately, some of these people have positions teaching in institutions of higher learning.” She was smart enough to add, “But you’ll find them in all walks of life, all throughout America” — but then dumb enough to insinuate, in snaking circles of self-delusion, that Barack Obama only hung out with domestic terrorists and leftist nut jobs. … And this is about two decades after the woman graduated with her law degree. Now, to be fair, I jacked that quote from 2008. In two years, Bachmann could have become somewhat less inflammatory, somewhat more legitimate. But Exhibit A shows that is not the case. Her campaign video from the fall of this past year: “This. Is. Socialization. Of. America,” Bachmann says, her voice against a black background as the camera cranes in on a clip of Obama’s victory speech two-and-a-half years ago. With that invective front and center, it’s pretty obvious where the rest of the video goes: working overtime, with the full range of Final Cut Proallotted powers at her disposal, Bachmann edits clips of her despised liberal colleagues together into an ideologically inflammatory stew. The “change” once promised by Obama has been reworked into a promise of tyrannical despotism. The happy faces of his supporters have been twisted into blind lemurs, joyously tossing themselves off the Cliff of Liberty onto the Rocks of Socio-FascistCommunism. At least, I think that’s what was going on. So why is Bachmann so important? Why is it that a House Representative from Minnesota, in office for only five years, is worthy of this 500-word column
from a University student? Well, one: she claims Gore Vidal turned her into a Republican. And two: Bachmann has become emblematic — more confrontational than Palin and more verbal than McCain — of corrosive political posturing. She’s derisive, not constructive. (Her feelings about the gays, circa ’04: “[I]f gay marriage goes through, is that K-12 little children will be forced to learn that homosexuality is normal, natural and perhaps they should try it.”) She correlates separate truths into a single false theory. (And about global warming from the floor of the House: “[C]arbon dioxide is not a harmful gas, it is a harmless gas. Carbon dioxide is natural. It is not harmful.”) More importantly, she is one of the driving forces behind the Tea Party, having anchored the movement’s caucus in the House. And she’s been one of the loudest proponents of lightly-coded insurrectionist rhetoric. (Her favorite new phrase? Jefferson’s “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”) It’s all a bit much. Even here on campus, we’re facing the usual array of problems: budget cuts and SGA-fueled political tensions and pop quizzes. We don’t have time for a bunch of hot air. And hot air that alienates whole groups of people, while inciting aggression before discussion and compromise? Ugh. She is another in the short but proud tradition of wild-eyed white women forsaking their better judgment for power and notoriety. She is also the public figurehead for a coalition largely comprised of conservative, wild-eyed white people forsaking their better judgment for indignation and martyrdom. And I can’t help but wonder: When will there be a visible Republican with a vagina who’s not completely insane? — Adam Carlson is a sophomore from Hiram majoring in magazines and film studies and is a variety writer for The Red & Black

semester. I urge concerned students to attend. As Dailey wrote: “it takes a village … and the village needs you.” If we don’t stand up and make our voice heard to the State and the University System, the results could be disastrous, with increased fees, higher tuition, the loss of HOPE, larger classes, fewer tenured professors and job cuts for workers who already don’t even make a living wage.

Be aware of theft risks on campus D
on’t steal. The Bible says not to. Common courtesy says
not to. Your mother said not to. That it is against the law is only superfluous. But not everyone gets the message. Earlier this month, University student Timothy Moore turned himself in to Athens police and admitted to stealing text books from students with the intent of reselling them. He is not the first nor will he be the last to take what is not his. This isn’t exactly an epidemic, but we are always only one kleptomaniac away from a serious inconvenience. How this happens is no great mystery. Theft on the University campus is relatively easy. We all have the ability — all we need is the motivation. Students leave personal items unaccounted for constantly. Leaving bags, books, even computers in Tate, the Miller Learning
Robert Carnes Center and the dining halls is common practice. Dorm room doors usually stay unlocked and not all of us use a locker at Ramsey. Plenty of good stuff is ripe for the picking on Myers Quad. Most of us trust that no one would take from us, especially in such a public setting. And almost always, this is true. As easy as it may be to swipe an unsuspecting individual’s biology notes, what would be the point? People steal from each other for a number of reasons, including desperation, boredom or because their friends dared them to. Thankfully, students are typically resigned to the latter category and are more afraid of getting caught than they are of playful belittlement. Parts of Athens are less than
savory, where buildings are known to be hijacked from their foundations. In comparison, the University campus is a haven for the dopey and unsuspecting. However, no one should let that sense of security lull them to sleep. Everyone should still be aware that theft is possible and should guard against it. I’m not suggesting installing security cameras or setting personal booby traps. Just use good judgment. There is a wide median between being paranoid and being an easy target. Don’t be that guy who fails a class because someone stole his homework. Hold on to your electronics. Keep an eye on your valuable textbooks. Don’t shout so loud about how much cash is in your wallet. And above all else, don’t steal. — Robert Carnes is a senior from Dunwoody majoring in newspapers
University must change plus/minus system
t’s that time of year — résumé workshops frequent the master calendar and internship applications stare at you with “you’re not worthy” print. Updating your résumé for the application rush begs the question: GPA or not? I was disappointed with my fall semester’s outcome. And I have to wonder what the difference would have been to my GPA had the University chosen to add an A+ to its grading system. Yes, I received straight A’s. But save your congratulations. I also failed to earn the coveted 4.0 that would make the perfect addition to my résumé. Because of the absence of an A+, I will never be able to make up for an Ablunder. I could get A’s the rest of my scholastic career, and my grade point average still wouldn’t be perfect. For students who receive mostly A’s, the University’s version of the plus/minus system could potentially ruin their GPA’s. Although an A- lowers your GPA, there is absolutely no chance of gaining an A+ to raise the average back again. The plus/minus system awards a 3.7 for an A- and a 4.0 for an A, and no A+ exists — though other “+” grades are abundant on the scale. This policy hurts both the reputation of the University and students’

I applaud Jeremy Dailey for his column (“Fight to keep University excellence,” Jan. 24) on fighting Gov. Deal’s budget cuts. I agree whole-heartedly that we cannot let these deep cuts to public higher education fly. That is why I am part of a statewide group called GSPHE (GA Students for Public Higher Education). Our Athens/UGA chapter is having a planning meeting Jan. 26 at 8 p.m. at Jittery Joe’s in the Miller Learning Center. We will be discussing a number of actions for this

Lindsey Cook chances at medical, law or graduate school. When applying to these institutions, students will be competing with students from colleges that may award A+. In classes where the majority receive an A or A- grade, the absence of A+ erases the ability of instructors to indicate when a student’s performance has been truly outstanding. Thus, a student in the upper percentile in a large lecture hall receives the same grade as the No. 1 student in the class — who could be many numerical points ahead. Does that seem fair to the high-achieving student? The same reasoning for having plus/minus distinctions in the first place may be used to justify an A+ policy: Students receiving an 87 should be rewarded with a B+, rather than making the same letter grade as a student receiving an 81. Just as a monumental difference exists between an 87 and an 81, the difference between a 97 and a 91 is equally meaningful. If students do the extra work to receive a 98, why shouldn’t they be rewarded? In 2006, the University piloted, and later adopted, the present plus/

minus policy to join ranks with America’s other top colleges. However, the Bulldog version departs from a true plus/minus scale, placing us in the clear minority among other, similar, institutions. When the University conducted studies to decide on the implementation of the policy, the Board of Regents picked out several institutions with which to compare. University officials labeled some as “peer institutions,” which are used in present comparison, and others as “aspirational institutions,” which are used as goals for the future, according to a Red & Black article (“Atypical grade system makes Univ. lonely,” Feb. 13, 2008.) Out of the peer institutions, such as Kansas and Virginia Tech, 14 employ some version of plus/ minus policy. Nine award an A+, with four equating it with a 4.33 and five equating it with a 4.0. Of the aspirational institutions, such as North Carolina-Chapel Hill and the University of Texas, 12 out of 14 grade with plus/minus, seven award an A+, one awards a 4.33 and the other six award a 4.0. Though I believe equaling an A+ with a 4.3 would best benefit the University, equating it with a 4.0 would also help students. And the University states little reason for not including an A+ in its policy: “An A+ was not includ-
ed when the University Council last voted to ask the Board of Regents for permission to adopt a plus/minus grading system. There are many different plus/minus systems at leading state universities...” according to the registrar’s website. Not having a true plus/ minus system puts the University out of step with institutions the Bulldogs were supposedly trying to model with the adoption of this system. The University must add an A+ distinction to the plus/minus grading policy. And ideally, this would earn the GPA equivalent of a 4.3. For instructors claiming this is more than perfect, the University could cap students’ total GPAs at 4.0, as the University of Alabama does. It could also let the small number of students who would earn such high honors spill over the 4.0 scale, the system Columbia University holds. The University’s talented students deserve the grades they earned — meaning an A+ for a 97 and above. With the addition of an A+, University students will be able to add an increased GPA to their résumés. Let us hope for change within the next few years. — Lindsey Cook is a freshman from Duluth majoring in political science and prejournalism and is a news writer for The Red & Black

▲ Hailing from Atlanta, the five-piece instrumental band features three members with degrees in classical guitar.
Straying from pop, band boosts sound By ADAM CARLSON The Red & Black There are many sounds in the music of Sorry No Ferrari — except one: a human voice. “We’re loud and you don’t have to worry about singing about something you don’t wanna sing about because there’s no vocal,” said guitaristBrett Kelly. Specializing in what they jointly call “instrumental progressive rock,” the band’s members are unabashed about the peculiarities of their style. “[It’s] three degreed musicians writing in classical structure and it’s nutty,” Kelly said. Those degrees would be in classical guitar, and only two of the band’s members don’t have them. Thus, closely aligned with math rock — a style of music that favors internal complex and seemingly dissonant rhythm structures — and influenced by the likes of the ’70s experimental band Yes (“Close to the Edge” comes up a lot) as well as the more recent work of Don Caballero, Sorry No Ferrari is nothing if not intricate. But the band members’ sound wasn’t always theirs. And it didn’t always sound like this. In fact, six years ago when founding member Chad Shivers first began the band, Ferrari was almost — sort of — poppy. “I don’t wanna say a poppunk background, but almost,” Shivers said. But from the fall of 2004 to the present, the band’s lineup has changed, and those who have stayed constant or longlasting (including Kelly, who joined in 2005) haven’t exactly remained stagnant. “I was getting kind of tired of playing what I was playing,” Shivers said. This led, as it does, to the inevitable. “Usually when that happens, I’m like, ‘Ah, let’s try a new instrument,’” he said. As a result, Shivers switched to the baritone guitar — not a major overhaul, true, but in a band as musically precise as

this, even the little things send big ripples. With the latest additions of a strong drummer and a fifth member assigned the “auxiliary” (that is, more computerbased) work, the different sounds of the band have gelled into one sound with a lot of layers. “I feel like we’re the band we wanted to be, now,” Shivers said. After all these years, Sorry No Ferrari has released its first album, “Ternary,” which Kelly readily professes is about the concept of singularity as much as anything else. The album is also, on first listen, cacophonous, with so many guitar riffs and drum lines thrown seemingly askew. But give it time: the work doesn’t so much grow on you, as you on it. As — apparently — it should. “I don’t really think we cater to our audience,” Shivers said. “We do kind of what we wanna do.” Lately, one of the main things the band has done is cater to its audience, at least partially, by releasing stems of music in a two-fold hope — one, to allow people the chance to remix (and interact more directly with) the music; and two, to have the opportunity to more steadily release more material. “And the idea from that is we get a lot of people saying our music is unapproachable or pretentious because it has so many notes, and we don’t want to come across like that at all,” Kelly said. In fact, when it comes to performing live, the band is decidedly not like the studied music they write and play. “We definitely take it seriously,” Kelly said. “But then a few drinks in and we all start making mistakes and having fun.”

Andrew Gross, former fraternity president, was also sent a letter. In the initial police report dated Dec. 4, 2010, Gross told police he first saw the chicken on the night of Dec. 3, 2010. However, notes attached to documents stemming from his meeting with OSC, state Gross found out about and saw the chicken for the first time on Dec. 4, 2010, and the pledges had been responsible for planning that night’s party. Gross, Rood and Guilbault were told they “may have been involved in a violation of the University Conduct Regulations,” according to the letters obtained by The Red & Black. Seagraves was unavailable for comment. Gross’ letter also stated he may have participated in the violation of “knowingly condoning, encouraging or requiring behavior that violated University conduct regulations.” Gross met with Seagraves on Dec. 16, 2010. In notes attached to the original letter to Gross, Seagraves wrote he was scheduled to meet with Gross again Jan. 13, 2011,

SPILL: Event hopes to unite groups ➤ From Page 1 the symposium started, but attended as many as she could upon her return. It was her idea to include a media panel, so people from each side could “sit face to face and talk about this stuff.” The symposium, which Gambill said is expected to attract several hundred attendees, kicks off with a keynote lecture from “first lady of the ocean” Sylvia Earle, the National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence. “She’s like, the queen of oceanography and we’re really lucky to have her,” Joye said of Earle. “She’s an incredible person and if you hear her speak, you can’t help but get excited about the ocean.” Several University alumni who played key roles in the coverage and recovery efforts from the Gulf spill are returning to their alma mater for the event, including Ray Jakubczak, a senior consultant for Cardno-Entrix who was contracted by British Petroleum to provide scientific services on coral reefs; Justin Gillis, a reporter with The New York Times who covered the oil spill; and Lt. Sue Kerver, the district eight public affairs officer for the U.S. Coast Guard. Issues such as economic affects, reaction of marine benthos, deep water plumes and working with government will be discussed during the three panels, one each for local officials in the Gulf of Mexico area, scientists and members of the media, Gambill said. “The reason I suggested [panelists] was because they have done some really groundbreaking work in the Gulf,” Joye said, adding there were only two panelists she had not worked with personally. “They are really top-notch people.” Charles Fisher, a biology professor at Penn State, said panelists would only have a brief amount of time to speak on their particular research topics, his being the effects of oil on coral reef communities. One of Wednesday’s panelists is Monty Graham, an assistant professor in the department of marine sciences at University of South Alabama, who has been studying zooplankton in the Gulf for a number of years prior to the

Deepwater Horizon spill. “I think that the symposium has evolved a little and the focus now is how, during this time of man-made disaster, how was it portrayed in the media,” he said. Graham said a major issue with media portrayal of the Gulf spill was finding a balance between what scientists were comfortable talking about — data that had been tested several times — and information the public wanted to know immediately. Irv Mendelssohn, an adjunct professor in the department of oceanography and coastal sciences at LSU, will also be participating in one of the panels on Wednesday. “It’s a great idea to have a symposium to try to reconcile the sometimes conflicting interests of these parties, and to provide objective assessments to the news media,” Mendelssohn said. “Often, though they have a laudable goal of disseminating information to the public, they can sensationalize things. This is a conference that’s really going to look at that question.” Rex Caffey, director of the LSU Center for Natural Resource Economics and Policy and a professor in the department of agricultural economics and agribusiness, said a key piece of information he wants to get across at the symposium is what the economic effects of the spill are — no one knows the answer yet. “There is not going to be one final answer,” he said. “The answer is blank. The economic impact is blank.” Patricia Thomas, a professor in Grady and the Knight Chair in health and medical journalism, will be moderating the panel directed at media. “You can’t help but be interested in the biggest story of 2010,” she said. “It’s unusual to see people who did such influential coverage all around the same table … Press performance has been criticized, as it always is. What do the reporters have to say about that?” Thomas said the symposium touched on larger issues than just one disaster, such as the dependency on fossil fuels. “[The symposium is] a window into the biggest issue that we have to deal with as a world going forward,” she said.

CROWD: Dogs enjoy home sell-outs ➤ From Page 1 and 8,000 only twice. This year, a single-digit number next to the opponent’s name doesn’t appear to be a necessity for fans to show up. Instead, the only necessity is having the Bulldogs on the court. “When we look up in the stands and we see a packed crowd in red and black, it’s not like previous years when we’d look up and see that other teams have more fans than us,” senior forward Chris Barnes said. “It’s good for us to have our home games and see our fans and classmates watch us play. That gives us a lot of confidence in ourselves that we believe we’re a good team.”

The Georgia men’s tennis team rolled at home on Monday against Clemson (3-1), blanking the Tigers 7-0. The No. 11 Bulldogs (1-0) carried their success from last week’s SEC Indoor Championships, where they won both the singles and doubles titles. Georgia dropped only one set to the Tigers. “Overall we played well,” head coach Manuel Diaz said. “There are a couple things we could work on with each person in order to continue to improve but, overall, we played well — it was a good start to the season.” Senior Javier Garrapiz earned the clinch point on court one, as he defeated Derek DiFazio, 6-2, 6-1. But the quickest and, according to Diaz, “one of the strongest matches” for the Bulldogs, came on court three. There, senior Drake Bernstein beat Gerardo Meza 6-1, 6-1 to put Georgia up 2-0 after the Bulldogs swept the three doubles matches to secure the doubles point and go up one. “[Bernstein] definitely played one of BERNSTEIN the strongest matches for us today,” Diaz said. “He just came out sharp, especially in the first set, and played some tremendous tennis.” Added Bernstein: “[Meza] is talented, but luckily I came right out playing well and was able to keep it up. A lot of our guys were able to get some easy wins so it’s very encouraging for us moving on.” Following Bernstein’s win, junior Sadio Doumbia made quick work of Wesley Moran with a 6-1, 6-2 victory before GARRAPIZ Garrapiz clinched the match. “Javi has done that for us plenty of times,” Diaz said of Garrapiz’s clinching victory. “He was very efficient [Monday] and he’ll be the first to tell you he didn’t feel his best, but we were very pleased with the way he took care of things.” After clinching the win, Georgia kept rolling with junior Wil Spencer’s 7-5, 7-5 victory over Kevin Galloway and junior Ignacio Taboada’s three-set win over Dominique Maden. Taboada dropped the first set 4-6 — Georgia’s only lost set in all nine matches — before rallying back to win in a third-set tie-breaker. The Bulldogs’ next match will be at home on Friday against No. 47 Oklahoma State in the opening match of the ITA Kickoff at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex.
Recruits remain Dogs despite coach’s exit By TRAVIS RAGSDALE The Red & Black

And for a moment, Theus said he wavered on his commitment. “Things change and you have to adapt, so I will just have to make a mature decision about it,” Theus said. “I am sure [head coach Mark] Richt will honor all of his offers, but I feel like whatever school I go to I will do whatever I can to earn a starting spot.” Theus has now been assured his scholarship offer remains despite Searels’ departure, and he confirmed he would still be trying to earn that starting spot at Georgia. “I thought it was falling apart. I thought the perfect plan was being destroyed. I didn’t know what was going to happen,” Theus said. “Now I just realized that it made us stronger and brought this class closer — definitely the offensive line.” Richt and the Georgia coaching staff have been on the road recruiting, trying to round out this recruiting class. Therefore, a decision on the next offensive line coach isn’t expected to come until after National Signing Day on Feb. 2. But even though they don’t know who their coach will be next year, Georgia’s committed offensive line prospects remain Dogs.
