Students rally around patriotism Ignited by bin Laden’s death By MARIANA HEREDIA THE RED & BLACK

KENNY ADCOX | The Red & Black

S Students gathered downtown Sunday night after the announcement of bin Laden’s death.

Alcohol course called ‘a joke’

Most Sunday nights are some of the quietest downtown. The bars are closed and few restaurants are still serving customers. But Sunday night was different.

Songs such as “Proud to be an American” roared from cars driving down Broad Street, and people dressed in the American flag chanted, “U.S.A.” at the top of their lungs in front of the Arch. Sunday night, President Barack Obama announced the nearly-10-year manhunt for Osama bin Laden, the architect behind the Sept. 11 attacks, was over. Bin Laden was dead.

“My roommates and I were just kind of excited to hop in a pickup truck and start blaring some music,” said Kenny Adcox, a senior telecommunications and anthropology major at the University. “I grabbed my camera and hopped in the truck with them and we drove by the Arch.” Adcox said he and his roommates blasted “The Red, White and Blue” by Toby Keith from the truck’s

stereo. Rocky Cole, a senior international affairs and economics major at the University, said the mood at the Arch was ecstatic. “I’ve heard people say this is the closest our generation is going to get to V-E day or V-J day,” he said. “This is the one day people thought we would never have tangible results See OSAMA, Page 2

‘BACK TOGETHER’

Students hold focus group By BRIANA GERDEMAN THE RED & BLACK When students turn an alcohol education course into a drinking game, there must be something going wrong. Students in Lynne Sallot’s public relations campaigns class this semester conducted research on perceptions of alcohol and drug use at the University. They held focus groups to talk to 160 University students about factors affecting alcohol and drug use, safe transportation after drinking, online alcohol education, awareness of the University’s alcohol and drug policy, and policies at other colleges regarding alcohol and drug policies and education. The student researchers found that My Student Body, the University’s online alcohol education course that students are required to complete, is considered ineffective and may actually encourage irresponsible drinking. “Through our focus groups, we found that students felt the My Student Body course was ineffective. People thought that it was a joke,” said team leader Mary-Kerstin Lindqvist, a senior public relations and fashion merchandising major. “Our most surprising finding was that some See DRINK, Page 5

S Athletic director Greg McGarity (left) and Manuel Diaz — head coach of the Georgia men’s tennis team — met when McGarity was a senior in high school in Athens as Diaz began his freshman year at the University.

McGarity, Diaz maintain decades-old friendship By CHRIS D’ANIELLO THE RED & BLACK Manuel Diaz sat on his Army foot locker — with duffle bag in hand — waiting at the Athens Greyhound station. He was not yet the head coach of the Georgia men’s tennis team. He was not yet a national champion. He was an 18-year-old University freshman from San Juan, Puerto Rico, awaiting a ride to McWhorter Hall. The chance to play collegiate tennis for then-Georgia head coach Dan Magill had arrived. And Magill’s right-hand man — high school senior Greg McGarity — was sent to pick up Diaz from the bus station.

“There were so many different things you were asked do to in helping Coach Magill out,” McGarity told the Red & Black. “Going to pick up somebody, going to pick up Manny, helping freshmen tennis players move into the dorms, bringing them to meet coach, anything that he needed, really.” Thirty years later, however, Diaz’s movein day chauffer would become his superior when McGarity was named Georgia’s athletic director last August. McGarity’s relationship with Diaz dates back to his high school years. His relationship with the University, goes even further back. McGarity’s father, Stuart McGarity, Sr.,

was in charge of selling Georgia football programs for four decades and, as a young boy, Greg would help sell the programs with his father in Sanford Stadium. As sports information director and head tennis coach at the time, Magill met Greg through his father. “I’ve known Greg since he was a little boy,” Magill said. “His family grew up down on Springdale Street. ‘Baby Greg,’ I used to call him and he called me ‘Mr. Dan’… in fact he still does.” McGarity recalled James Payne, the long-time custodian at the tennis courts, who always referred to Magill as “Mr. See FRIENDS, Page 10

Former Bulldogs help kick off Stadion Classic By CHRIS D’ANIELLO THE RED & BLACK PGA Tour golfer and former Bulldog Bubba Watson kicked off the Stadion Classic in Athens Monday by presenting a $50,000 check to the University to help boost youth golf education. The money came as part of the Play Golf America University program, which gave $50,000 for each member of the U.S. Ryder Cup team to donate to the university of his choosing. Watson, who graduated from Georgia in 2001 and played on the 2000 SEC championship team, chose his alma mater. “It’s the highlight of my professional career to play in the Ryder

Cup,” Watson said. “And to be able to take that experience and use it in a way that supports the school I graduated from, it’s just an honor.” Watson and fellow Georgia graduate Chip Beck are the honorary cochairs for the Stadion Classic, a PGA tournament that will host events throughout the week before the first round begins Thursday. Accepting the check on behalf of the University was President Michael Adams, who praised not only Watson and Beck’s play on the course, but their personalities off it. “If you talk to players on any of the tours, they will tell you that Chip Beck and Bubba Watson are two of the most respected people on the tour,” Adams said. “Not only are they

great golfers, they’re great people. They’re great Bulldogs. I can’t tell you how grateful we are for how they represent us all over the world.” Watson was coming off an eventful weekend during which he won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in a playoff round. The victory was his third PGA Tour win and Watson said he can tell he is reaping the rewards of his hard work. “It’s nice to just play on the PGA Tour for a living,” he said. “And working hard, putting the energy in, getting my mind where it needs to be is really paying off right now.” Watson said he has been working hard at everything from putting

¢ From Page 1 from.â€? Cole said he had the idea to hang the American flag on the Arch. “It’s something, a feeling my generation has never experienced before,â€? Cole said. “That was some of the appeal too. No one in our generation has gotten to celebrate a military victory like this.â€? Iain Turnbull, a senior philosophy major at the University, said he heard about the news over his Facebook newsfeed. He said he and his friends were part of the 40-person group celebrating at the Arch. “We were kind of worried at first for police, but they were cool,â€? he said. He and his friends actually broke the news to a lot of the people downtown. “We were just screaming ‘We got him! We got him!’â€? Turnbull said. “Some people were there who didn’t know what we were talking about until we told them.â€? Turnbull said he felt it was a special moment for students because they were able to stop what they were doing and live in the moment. “We really put everything down and cheered, and that’s so rare to see under a belief, under an ideology.

A dog was taken into custody Saturday afternoon after biting the thumb of a University student, according to a University Police report. An officer spotted a large black and white dog “standing on the steps� of the Arch without a leash. The officer asked but no one claimed it. The dog was “growling and charging people,� according to the document. Documents The officer requested Animal Control be contacted. A University student told the officer the dog had bitten his thumb. He declined medical treatment. Animal Control took the dog into custody.

S Students Kit Conklin, Daniel Jackson and Rocky Cole string an American flag to the Arch to celebrate Osama bin Laden’s death Sunday. could see the reactions from her friends while also knowing what the press was saying. “It’s just crazy because hours before Obama had his announcement planned, everybody on the Internet had been talking about it and had already come up with all sorts of opinions about the subject,� she said. Highsmith said although she was not at the Arch, following the news on social media websites provided her with a feeling of unity. “I feel like everyone was banded together just celebrating, and even though I couldn’t be in Washington D.C., I knew exactly what they were doing to celebrate, and it just really brought everyone together,� she said. Alan Godlas, associate professor of religion at the University, said he was not one of the people celebrating out in the streets. “I certainly was not jubilant like you saw these people on TV,� he said. “My sense is that bin Laden’s followers are going to try as hard as they can in the next few weeks or the immediate future to take

some revenge. So I don’t think there is any cause for celebration. At least in the short term, it will be a problem.� Still, Godlas said bin Laden’s death would bring some positivity. “I think in the long run this will probably diminish Islamophobia here as well as bad relations between U.S. and Muslims abroad,� he said. Godlas said part of what will help this turn around would be Obama’s speech from Sunday night because it focused on the Sept. 11 tragedy. Godlas said Obama’s speech humanized U.S. troops abroad. “He really made it clear that this was a human tragedy. This was not just a terrorist incident. It was a tragedy in which over 3,000 people died,� he said. “I think that the purpose of him doing that was to really make it clear to the world that we were not going after bin Laden. We were not just after blood. That there was an injustice done to innocent American citizens, and so, part of going after bin Laden was really foreclosure for these Americans and for justice.�

When the employee approached the car, he saw William Merritt Perry, 20, inserting a green leafy substance into a small glass pipe. He then called police. The officer saw a green pipe and a green leafy substance in the cup holder. Perry said he could search the vehicle. Perry showed the officer a pipe with a burnt residue. The substance tested positive for marijuana. Perry said he had been drinking. A check showed he was under 21. Perry was arrested and transported to Clarke County Jail.

Majority opinions of The Red & Black’s editorial board

A virtual obituary Before Obama’s speech about bin Laden’s death, we had already looked on Twitter He was the Hitler of our generation. And now he’s gone. Osama bin Laden was killed Sunday in Pakistan by a contingent of American soldiers. “Justice has been done,” President Barack Obama said in his speech Sunday night. But for our generation — those of us for whom the name bin Laden conjures up childhood memories of burning buildings and TSA screenings — “justice” was done well before Obama said so. We knew bin Laden was dead. We saw the status updates. But we didn’t just check Facebook — we sent out a Tweet. And we didn’t watch Obama’s speech on TV — we watched it on our iPhones. The death of bin Laden has shown us the power of social media when confronted with a massive world event. We can see screen shots of the compound where he hid. We can blog about the Twitter postings tweeting about his death. @GhostOsama has already racked up almost 40,000 followers with tweets such as, “I retired as the world champion of hide and seek,” and “Was just granted my 72 virgins, YES!” One man even tweeted the live attack on bin Laden. We’re the products of the digital age. And we’ll find the information — even if we can’t find a job. This year, we’ve seen revolutions rise and fall in Libya and Tunisia, Bahrain and Egypt. And they were started with the youth — using the technology of our generation. We all remember where we were when the Twin Towers fell. But the editorial board wonders whether we’ll remember where we were at the death of bin Laden. We know the answer — Twitter. Ding-dong, the terrorist is dead. — Courtney Holbrook for the editorial board

Reality TV lacks average teen life W

hat makes reality TV real? Other than the people that star in it, I can’t think of anything. With television full of reality shows — “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” even a former Playboy Bunny’s show, “Holly’s World” — it’s hard to remember what is reality and what is a twisted version of it. Is it possible to maintain traditional values and norms when we are surrounded by provocative TV shows? Maybe. Or maybe, we are merely changing our reality to mirror the shows that project a more dangerous “reality.” I used to think plastic surgery was taboo. But now I don’t know what to think. It’s projected to us a normal part of the aging (or rather, ageless) process through many media — television, magazine photos, the Internet. When I start to see wrinkles, I can only hope I have some courage to face myself in front of a mirror, instead of under a knife. Also, I am not sure how you grew up, but my parents always taught me babies were supposed to appear sometime later in life. You know, after the dating part and hopefully after the marriage part, too. “16 and Pregnant” showcases a different reality. Sixteen-year-old girls are faced with the unexpected consequences of premarital sex. The show focuses on pregnancy woes, marriage proposals (sometimes), community college and unhappy par-

SARAH SALTZMAN ents. As far as I can tell, this program is the face of MTV, as well as an unfortunate American reality. Even though teen pregnancy is at its lowest in America, 39 births per 1,000 girls, teen pregnancy rates for Western Europe are drastically lower, according to Fox News. In Italy the rate is five per 1000. In Canada, the rate is under 13. I am not saying that MTV’s “16 and Pregnant” has propelled American teenage pregnancy rates through the roof. But it is possible that reality TV and popular culture have not helped the cause. I worry for the future children of America. There isn’t much they haven’t seen on TV. Except for this. Forget “The Bachelor” and “Jersey Shore” for a moment. Imagine a reality show featuring a young student paying her way through college. Imagine her balancing her social life with internships, dating and homework. Though this may sound boring in comparison to “Paris Hilton’s British BFF,” real life is interesting, stressful, funny and at times, even sexy. Now that sounds like a reality. I’d watch it. — Sarah Saltzman is a senior from Roswell majoring in magazines and anthropology

Bin Laden is dead: celebrate or no? Yes: America’s #winning No: Show respect for dead

I

admit that I shed a tear Sunday night. September 11, 2001 has been forever branded into my memory. I watched silently in my 7th grade history class as the news showed clips of the Twin Towers falling over and over again. Almost 3,000 Americans lost their lives that day, and we all have anxiously awaited justice for this horrendous crime ever since. On Sunday, we got just that. Osama bin Laden — master conspirator behind the 9/11 attacks — was finally shot and killed after 10 long years of searching. Glory, glory! Hallelujah! When the news of bin Laden’s death first broke, thousands took to the streets in New York City and D.C. to shout “USA! USA! USA!” Millions more took to Facebook and Twitter to post statuses such as “God bless America” and “#winning.” Meanwhile, I just stared blankly at the TV in awe and amazement. I thought of all the soldiers that have given their lives to protect our freedom. I thought of all the families that have mourned the loss of their own personal hero. I thought of all the children who will grow up without a mother or father at their side. And I wept tears of joy. After 9/11, this country came together like never before in my lifetime. And with bin Laden’s death, we can now take comfort in knowing that the mass murderer of thousands of Americans has finally gotten what he deserved. It is time to rally together under the red, white and blue once again. AJ Archer disagrees with me, saying that we should not celebrate any death, including bin Laden’s.

JEREMY DAILEY darkness. Maybe Archer is a better person than me, but I have no qualms in rejoicing the death of Public Enemy No. 1. If I had the opportunity, I would have shot and killed him myself and never blinked an eye. Archer implies that this makes me heartless and inhumane. When we are in the midst of a war, there is nothing heartless or inhumane about taking out your country’s enemy — especially one as vile as bin Laden. To even suggest that is an insult to our armed forces abroad. I would love to live in Archer’s idealistic world. But that is not how it works. Bin Laden’s evasion of United States forces for such a long period of time stood as a symbol to the Arab rebels that America was weak. His death proves to those we are fighting against that this is not the case. Archer also suggests that bin Laden’s death could be a rallying cry to recruit more people to the rebel cause. Although that remains to be unseen, I can confidently say this: Bin Laden’s death is our most significant victory since we invaded Afghanistan in 2001. It is an incredible morale booster for our troops who have fought so hard for this accomplishment. And it is an excellent reminder to every American about what we are fighting for. Our enemies might gain from this event, but we gain so much more. We can and should stand together to celebrate this historical achievement for the United States. God bless America! #winning — Jeremy Dailey is a senior from Conyers majoring in political science

I

am in no way a terrorist sympathizer. But I will admit to being a human sympathizer. That means that the loss of a human life is saddening — always. I understand that Osama bin Laden played a role in the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings, founded al-Qaeda and claimed responsibility for the devastating attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. I stand against bin Laden’s actions wholeheartedly and resent the grief that he caused this great country. But I refuse to celebrate a death. I understand the citizens of Pakistan celebrated in the streets following the fall of the World Trade Center and that alQaeda takes satisfaction in the number of American lives it has taken. I am still hurt that a group of people can cause so much damage and then feel justified in their wrongdoings. But I refuse to celebrate a death. I am proud of both President Obama and the troops that brought about the ultimate demise of bin Laden. And I am happy a vile human being is no longer at large. The steadfast determination the administration showed against bin Laden’s survival and the skillful execution of the operatives gives me great pride in being an American. But I refuse to celebrate a death. I was raised to believe that two wrongs do not make a right. That value still holds true. My observation of the American public leads me to believe that we are in the wrong to be celebrating so intensely. Before the announcement, people were buzzing with excitement someone died. During the announcement, people were exuding pleasure someone died. After the announcement, people were relishing in the fact someone died. All of the warm feelings of happiness surrounding a death exemplifies heartlessness.

AJ ARCHER Regardless of the severity of the wrongs, they will never make anything right. As a nation, we were harmed by bin Laden and the orders that he put out to degrade the morale of our people. But his actions should not elicit our disrespect to the loss of a human life. And the celebration is not due until we can finally say we have once and for all ended the terror that began almost 10 years ago. Right now, we cannot say that. Even if celebration were called for, I do not believe that we are doing it correctly. I do not support the greatest country in the world spreading a message of hate. We should be an example to other countries. Our celebration should be a silent satisfaction that we are free of the mystery surrounding the source of our grief. Instead, we opt to plaster bin Laden’s name on tabloids reading “US nails the bastard” [New York Post, May 2] and “Rot in hell” [Daily News, May 2]. There is a fine line between being prideful of one’s accomplishments and being heartless towards others. We as a country have crossed it. The rally outside of the White House last night is a strong testament to our nation’s unity. But it portrays us as a nation that preaches hate towards those who hurt us. Hate, when satisfaction is just as rewarding. Take pride for the accomplishments of your country and rejoice that you have the opportunity to live here. But do not lose your humanity in the excitement. — AJ Archer is a freshman from McDonough majoring in romance languages and newspapers

MLC hours not likely to change By CHARLES HICKS THE RED & BLACK

S Lynne Sallot’s public relations campaign class found the University’s alcohol education program did not discourage student drinking.

DRINK: Research to alter alcohol course ¢ From Page 1 students turned it into a drinking game and did it with friends.” Other students in the focus groups said the My Student Body course taught them how to get drunk faster by mixing alcohol with caffeine. “I thought it was great!” said one student in the focus group, quoted in the PR class’s research report. “It taught me all sorts of new tricks for drinking so I didn’t look so naïve coming into college!” The researchers also asked students about their perceptions of safe transportation after drinking. Most students knew the dangers of driving drunk, but many were also concerned about the safety of taxis. The researchers met with AthensClarke County Police and learned there are already regulations for taxis and taxi drivers. The student researchers emphasized safety and moderation in drinking rather than abstinence. “I felt that students are going to make their own decisions about alcohol and drugs, but it’s important to know the consequences,” said Eleni Herrington, a senior public relations major and member of the research team. “A lot of seniors don’t know the alcohol policy has changed since we were freshmen.” The University’s alcohol policy now has more flexibility, she said. Before, “any type of infraction was a strike. Now, they give more weight to more serious offenses.” This semester’s class was the first in a series of public relations classes that will work on a campaign to promote better alcohol education at the University, Herrington said. Students taking the course in the fall will implement changes based on the research gathered this semester. After talking to students at the University and studying alcohol education programs at other colleges, Lindqvist said she and the other researchers thought a program based on personal testimonials would be more effective. Their research suggests

the University start a program similar to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s ACE IT, which combines a theatrical performance and discussions led by older students to educate new students about alcohol. “We were looking more at a personalized approach than big lectures,” Herrington said. “If they felt the campaign was coming from other students, they might be more receptive.”

Cramming for that biochemisty final? The Miller Learning Center can provide 24-hour refuge — for now. The MLC was a 24-hour operating facility throughout the school year in 2007. But only a few months later, the MLC returned to a daily system. The hours of operation are not likely to change anytime soon said Jean Cleveland, the public information officer of the University Libraries. “As far as I know, we are still planning on having the 24-hour access during finals,” Cleveland said. “But I don’t know of any plans right now to extend that.” The extended hours at the MLC were too expensive, Cleveland said. “The building was originally planned to be open for 24-hours, but hours were scaled back during the economic crisis due to staffing costs,” he said. The MLC is open from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Thursday. Hours differ on holidays and weekends. The hours are the most practical, said Caroline Barratt, the director of the MLC. “We were open 24 hours for a few months, and not many people used it,” Barratt said. “We have counters and security who keep track of how many students are in the building. There’s a big drop off from between 3 a.m. until 5:30. So it seems like there wasn’t a lot of use com-

“When we have the 24-hour period before and during finals, we hire two to three extra people to do security in the building.” Some students said they were content with the building’s hours. “I am usually asleep by midnight, so it doesn’t affect me,” said Jessica Hillis-Bragdon, a freshman comparative literature major from Augusta. “I don’t wake up before 7 a.m. either, so it doesn’t matter to me.”

Meghan Ranieri, a sophomore early childhood education major from Athens, also claimed she is not a late studier. “I think that’s fine,” Ranieri said. “I wouldn’t come here that late anyways. I never study past 10 o’clock.” Barratt did not rule out returning to a 24-hour system. “That’s not saying we won’t go to 24 hours again,” she said. “It’s just not practical right now.”

S University student JoyEllen Freeman is part of a 40-person group of college students that will retrace the route of the 1961 Freedom Ride.

Students recreate bus journey Freedom Ride remembered By LINDSEY COOK THE RED & BLACK JoyEllen Freeman is going on a road trip this summer, but it’s not the average trip to the “Jersey Shore” or Disneyland. Freeman is participating in the 2011 Student Freedom Ride sponsored by American Experience and the Public Broadcasting Service. Freeman is one of 40 college students from around the country who will retrace the stops of the original 1961 Freedom Ride, traveling from Washington, D.C. to New Orleans from May 6 to May 16. On the 10-day trip, the students will be joined by some of the original Freedom Riders from the Civil Rights Movement and will stop in 20 Southern cities. Freeman, a sophomore English and English education major from Milton, said she has had a long interest in the Civil Rights Movement. Her interest began when she was a child listening to her grandmother’s stories of the movement and segregation. “She was not allowed to go to certain pools or certain restaurants and I think it affects her now,” Freeman said of her grandmother. Freeman’s curiosity

RIDE ONLINE Twitter: @joygirl91 Website: http://www.pbs. org/wgbh/americanexperience/freedomriders/2011/ tag/joyellen-freeman/ grew when she began researching with University professor Barbara McCaskill, updating the Civil Rights Digital Library. Because of her interest in the Civil Rights Movement, Freeman was familiar with the Freedom Rides of 1961 and wanted to participate in the 2011 Freedom Ride. The ride, which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the original ride, takes riders to a time when ordinary college students — both black and white — rode on a bus from D.C. to the South to test desegregation. “As they got deeper into the South, the violence they faced got worse and worse,” Freeman said. Because of the violence from the Ku Klux Klan and other supremacy groups, the original riders never reached their intended destination. However, the 2011 group, will reach New Orleans. Freeman said she is excited to “become inspired by original Freedom Riders,” including Rep. John Lewis, and hopes to learn from them and from other students chosen for the trip. “Since I’ve been researching this for two years, it will be great to

experience that research on a personal level,” Freeman said. The trip is concentrated on sharing the group’s experiences with the world. During the trip, the riders will be blogging, uploading video feed, tweeting and updating Facebook. “It’s a highly wired trip. I’m excited to be able to share it like that — that’s something that wouldn’t be possible years ago,” Freeman said. Freeman encourages University students to follow her journey using these methods. There is a “follow by rider” link on the PBS 2011 Freedom Ride website where students can follow Freeman and other riders during their journey. Freeman said it’s important to understand the Civil Rights Movement was a grassroots effort led by normal people like the freedom riders. “I think people have a misconception that it’s just the Martin Luther King [Jr.] movement or the Rosa Parks movement, but it was really a grassroots effort by ordinary people of all races,” Freeman said. Freeman said she hopes retracing the Freedom Ride will remind America these issues are still important and forgetting them could be costly to civil rights. “When we start thinking it’s not an issue and it doesn’t exist — that’s how we can allow history to repeat itself,” Freeman said.

Summer is just a few days away, and whether you’re at home, the beach or in school, most of us will probably find time to catch a few of this year’s summer blockbusters. However, before you head to the box office, invest some time in thinking about what movies you should see — and what you should avoid — this summer. ‘Thor’ (May 6): SEE IT

‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ (July 1): AVOID

The first superhero movie out of the gate this summer, “Thor,” may also be the most worthwhile. Starring Chris Hemsworth, (“Star Trek”) Natalie Portman (“Black Swan”), the film’s strong cast should make this one a winner. True, it’s probably not going to be the most cerebral superhero film of the season, but good action and cool art design should make this a perfect summer diversion.

Michael Bay is sure to deliver big explosions, overblown action sequences, mind-numbing plot lines and a new hottie to replace Megan Fox in the latest “Transformers” film. Those who like films such as “Independence Day,” “Pearl Harbor” and the previous “Transformers” films will no doubt be satisfied. However, we who enjoy using our brains instead of letting them rot should avoid at all costs.

‘The Hangover Part II’ (May 26): SEE IT Director Todd Phillips (“The Hangover”) and the wolf pack are back as the boys head to Bangkok. The first film was a modern comedic classic, so there is always a chance that a sequel won’t match the original. But even if the “Hangover Part II” is a decline in quality over the original, it will still be much better than most of the other comedies the studios send flying out.

PHOTO ILLUSTRATION BY JAN-MICHAEL CART

‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2’ (July 15): SEE IT It doesn’t really matter what I write here. People infatuated with the “Harry Potter” franchise have already made up their minds to see this final installment in the film series. Then there are the people who couldn’t care less and have no desire to see how Harry’s story will end. But after seven books and now eight movies, one thing is certain: it’s time for “Harry” to end.

‘Green Lantern’ (June 17): HIT OR MISS Ryan Reynolds (“The Proposal”) headlines as the cosmic superhero. Looking to be a bit lighter and more humorous than the other superhero films, “Green Lantern” also has its share of flaws, like how cheesy the 100% CGI costume looks. So with a mixed bag of good and bad, seeing “Green Lantern” is a matter of taste. ‘Bad Teacher’ (June 24): AVOID Featuring Cameron Diaz (“Knight and Day”) and Justin Timberlake (“The Social Network”), this is the story of a teacher who wants a boob job. Sounds like a one joke movie. It’s helmed by Jake Kasdan, who’s greatest accomplishment is “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story,” a true cinematic masterpiece. Save your money — and if you want comedy, go see “The Hangover Part II” again.

Two People Playing Music is a group who needs little explanation. With a keyboard and drum set, Chase Hudson and Sean Sullivan have already released their debut album together, “While No One’s Watching,� and are in the process of preparing the follow up “For People.� “We are really focusing on our second album,� said Sullivan, the drummer. “We are going to be recording and producing that this summer.� The duo, based in the small town of Whittier, N.C., met in another place, but have been playing music since they found “pots and pans.� “We have played in a band together the past three years or so,� said Hudson, the keyboardist. “We just met in communities down in Northwest Florida where we were staying.� Two People Playing Music has an array of influences, including Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock and Benny Goodman. The group originally described itself as “Flurrycore,� or a blend of rock, pop and post-jazz. But as the band evolves, it seems to be leaving that rather creative description behind. “We are kind of walking away from ‘Flurrycore,’� Sullivan said. “We think our music can just be described as post-jazz.�

Though there are going to be some differences in the two albums, most of the tweaks will be minuscule. “It’s just the progression that is playing music,� Hudson said. “A lot of the songs on the upcoming album were created at the same time as we did for the first album.� The two-piece would also like to embark on being the first musicians to play on Mars as well as — more realistically — pair its music with film makers. “We like bringing our music to communities and building important relationships,� Sullivan said. Until then, the band plans to keep giving out and receiving the good vibes. “Whenever people gather there is a spirit present,� Hudson said. “We are enjoying the energy.�

A person must be seen to be heard — but tell that to the tree that fell in the forest. “I’m kind of an outsider,� said singer-songwriter Nathan Sheppard of his place in the Athens music scene. “Older folks know my name, but if you’re under 35 you’ve probably never heard of me.� And this anonymity suits him just fine. “I’m not on the front page anywhere, and I haven’t made a concentrated effort to reach [younger audiences],� he said. “It’s not really a problem. I do what I do, and it’s retro.� By retro, Sheppard means the melody-driven radio rock of the ’60s and ’70s — the non-affected and underproduced pop of his peers — sometimes country, sometimes rock and sometimes something else all together. It’s quite simple, really — just a guitar, a man and a melody. “I like so many different genres and artists that to focus on one kind of thing isn’t what I like [to do],� Sheppard said. “So, for me, there is no genre. It’s all over the place.� What unifies his work is a bit more basic. “To me, it’s more about the melody,� he said. “Melody I can do any day, all the time. So the lyrics, they catch up.� And Sheppard is willing to wait. Three decades since first appearing in Athens at open mics and fraternity parties, Sheppard hasn’t changed much. “I’m pretty busy working on a bunch of recordings and helping others, but I would like to do 10 or 15 more albums before I die,� he said. “A lot of the songs are written, I’ve just got to record.�

Palazzone anchors improved staff By ROBBIE OTTLEY THE RED & BLACK The residents who live in the houses behind Foley Field’s outfield wall regularly watch the Diamond Dogs play ball. They are heirs to the days before the athletic association erected a fence and bleachers on Kudzu Hill, preventing fans from drunkenly accosting opposing outfielders. Before March, it’d been a long time since those fans had seen good news. The Diamond Dogs didn’t seem capable of addressing the problems that led to a dismal 12-17 home record last year. But Georgia has righted the ship with improved pitching. And the centerpiece of the pitching turnaround, starter Michael Palazzone, earned a sign from the fans in right field during his start last Saturday, proclaiming the territory “Palazzone’s Porch.” “We just have leaned on him hard all year,” head coach David Perno said. “He’s not as sexy. No, he doesn’t throw 94, 95 [miles per hour] … but it’s just pitching.” In his first year as a starter, Palazzone was a weak spot on the pitching staff. In 13 starts, Palazzone had an 8.66 ERA. Leaving last year’s problems behind proved a simple task for Palazzone. “You almost wanted to forget that,” he said. “That was pretty easy to clear out of my head.” Two major offseason adjustments helped Palazzone to reorient his focus. Perno shuffled his staff after the disappointing season, and took additional responsibility of coaching his pitchers. Palazzone also pitched in the Cape Cod Baseball League in Massachusetts last summer, competing against the nation’s top collegiate talent. “I got a chance to get away for a little while, clear my head, and got a little confidence throwing well out there,” he said. “I just kinda told myself, I can do this.” The renewed confidence

is evident in Palazzone’s performance this season. Palazzone has given up only seven walks this season, including a four-game stretch with no free bases. Likewise, a Georgia staff who gave up 273 walks last year has allowed only 149 walks this season, with 11 regular season games remaining. “[The] biggest thing is, we’re throwing strikes, and getting outs when we need to get outs,” reliever Blake Dieterich said. “We’re just a lot more competitive than we were last year.” Fewer free bases means fewer opportunities for opponents to score. It’s a theme Perno’s discussed all season: making opponents earn their runs. If

opposing batters get hits off Palazzone, they’ve definitely earned them. “He’s not gonna beat himself,” Perno said. “When you got the weapons he does, and pitch with the command he does, and the confidence he’s pitching with … it’s gonna be tough to score.” Palazzone’s pitching has developed paramount importance to his team’s performance. He has only one loss recorded, and the Diamond Dogs haven’t lost on Saturday since Palazzone earned a no-decision in a game against South Carolina in March. Being able to virtually pencil in a Saturday victory has an enormous effect on the Diamond Dogs’

momentum and ability to translate individual wins into series wins. That’s a departure from last year, when Georgia would spiral out of control after a loss. “Last year we didn’t have any momentum changers,” Dieterich said. “If we don’t play well Friday, Palazzone comes out, and he does a great job turning that momentum.” In three consecutive series, the Diamond Dogs have dropped the Friday opener, and Palazzone has helped the team rebound for a Saturday victory. Perno expressed his pitcher’s value simply. “No one better to pick your team up after a loss than Michael Palazzone,” he said.

Dan.� He said that rubbed off on him and “mister� stuck because “coach� did not capture everything Magill did. “When I started with him at 10 years old, you knew he coached but the more you were around him you realized he wore so many different hats. So it was a courtesy to call him ‘mister.’ To this day, I rarely call him ‘coach.’ I still call him ‘Mr. Dan,’� McGarity said. Magill is now the curator of the ITA Men’s Collegiate Tennis Hall of Fame, which is housed in the tennis complex on campus bearing his name. While McGarity was growing up in Athens, however, Magill was the tennis coach, the sports information director and president of The Bulldog Club. McGarity would be a ball boy for Magill’s tennis team in the spring and distribute statistics to sports writers in the press box at Georgia football home games in the fall, among other duties. “Greg grew up here all his life,� Diaz said. “He was always Coach Magill’s special assistant-slash-team manager, whatever you want to call it.

Coach Magill’s right-hand man. That would be helping at the tennis courts, helping in the press box at football games, helping him with the Bulldog Club. Whatever hat he wore, you wore, too.� Throughout college and his career, McGarity has done different things, such as working in journalism and now coordinating an entire athletic department. Diaz equated McGarity to Magill in that sense. “I watched him come to Georgia, join the team, graduate, work with Coach Magill in sports information, become our women’s [tennis] head coach, move up the system here, head to Florida,� Diaz said. “Just like Coach Magill, Greg has worn many hats. It’s nice to see him make it all the way back to Athens.� After graduating from Georgia in 1976, McGarity became head coach of the women’s tennis team while he was attending graduate school. He then worked in sports information until then-athletic director Vince Dooley named him associate athletic director for facilities and event management. One of McGarity’s duties was to coordinate Georgia’s annual football matchup against Florida in Jacksonville, which led him to Jeremy Foley, who performed the same duties for Florida. When Foley was named Florida’s athletic director in 1992, he hired McGarity to be his director of internal affairs, where he remained until he was named Georgia’s athletic director last August. McGarity’s friendship with Diaz never faded — even when the two worked at rival universities. “We always stayed in touch,� Diaz said. “I mean, I regard him as a very good friend. He would always call me up whenever we played down in Gainesville and we would get together and talk for a while before the match.� McGarity said he and Diaz “grew up together� during their time in Athens as young men. “We grew together here starting in the ’70s, and I took about a 20-year vacation to Florida,� McGarity said. “But we’re back together now.� McGarity said his friendship with Diaz is as strong as ever, but admitted it is “a little different now.� As athletic director, every coach needs to be “accountable,� McGarity said. “You have a personal friendship here, but you also have a professional relationship to where you treat him just like any other coaches we have,� he said. “You’ve got to be fair because you can’t play favorites and you can’t fall in love with coaches. Every decision you make has got to be the best decision for the institution.� That belief in accountability, along with his care for everyone involved in the athletic department, is what is going to make McGarity a successful athletic director, Diaz said. “He cares,� Diaz said. “He cares about people. I’ve had more contact with him, not because of my prior relationship with him, but as an athletic-directorto-coach relationship, in the last six months than I’ve ever had with an athletic director before.� Diaz said McGarity is involved, not because he micromanages every aspect of the department, but for all of the right reasons. “It’s not that he’s micromanaging in any way. He’s just very supportive and very interested in each and every sport, in each and every coach and in each and every athlete,� Diaz said. “And that’s just remarkable. That’s just a true sign of a leader.� Magill, like Diaz, said he believes McGarity “will be a very popular athletic director.� He is already very popular among the athletes and coaches, Diaz said. “He’s the kind of guy that you see at a football game, and he’s got his athletic director hat,� Diaz said. “But he can still talk to you as buddies and friends. He relates to you, and doesn’t try to put up barriers or pretensions. He’s just a great guy.�

Finals Edition | The Red & Black | Tuesday, May 3, 2011 | 11

Freshman lets play talk for her By MITCH BLOMERT THE RED AND BLACK When Maho Kowase steps onto the tennis court, the culture shock disappears. The freshman traveled from Japan to Athens to play for the No. 9 Georgia women’s tennis team this season. She endured the hardships that come with such a substantial move, such as language barriers, forming new friendships and adjusting to academic rigors. But when a racket is in her hand, those hardships mean nothing. “I can’t explain myself in the conversation sometimes,� Kowase said. “So I try to express myself in the court instead of outside of the court.� The expression has come in the form of a successful freshman year, leading Georgia with 29 overall wins. Playing the entire season at No. 1 or No. 2 singles, Kowase was one of only two Lady Bulldogs selected to the All-SEC First Team and the only one picked for the All-Freshmen team. All this, and one other thing — she’s still learning English. “I was a talkative person when I played in Japan, but here I can’t speak up more,� Kowase said. “I try to, but it’s not enough for me. It’s hard sometimes.� Put academics on top of practice, as well as learning a foreign language, and the result is a busy, strenuous freshman year. But Kowase hasn’t been fazed.

Majoring in business management, she carries a 3.51 cumulative grade point average. “She’s developing and learning that she will be able to handle these things,� said Jeff Wallace, head coach of the Georgia women’s tennis team. “She probably has to study twice the amount of what I would have to just because of the language barrier.� After a decorated high school and junior career in her native Chiba Prefecture, Kowase began visiting American universities in hopes of following the footsteps of former Lady Bulldog Naoko Ueshima, who left Georgia as the team’s alltime wins leader last season. Ueshima still lives in Athens and is a graduate student at the University — a perfect ally for Kowase’s new life. “She helps me a lot,� Kowase said. “Whenever I went down, I’d talk to her and we’d go shopping or I’d have a Japanese dinner with her. If she has time, she always comes to see my matches.� Like Ueshima, Kowase may be the next staple in the Lady Bulldogs’ lineup — more than she already is. With three years of eligibility remaining after this season, and No. 1 Chelsey Gullickson graduating after next season, Wallace expects Kowase to become the new face of Georgia tennis as she improves. “I look at it like we already have a dangerous player

S Maho Kowase moved from Japan to join the Georgia women’s tennis team. She leads the Lady Bulldogs with 29 individual wins on the season. that’s going to get more dangerous, and that’s very exciting,� Wallace said. “She’s a great player right now, but she has so much she can do to get better. If she remains as coachable as she is right now and really implements some of those things we’re working on in her game, she’s going to be really good.� So good, she could go pro. Kowase already carries a No. 79 national ranking. And with Georgia already being a take-off point for pros, including John Isner and Gullickson’s sister Carly,

the opportunity is there. It’s a matter if Kowase wants it. “I haven’t decided yet,� she said. “I think I have good talents, but I don’t know yet.� Instead, her focus remains elsewhere. It’s on the court, where she enters next Friday’s NCAA Championships as a threat on a national level. And also on her new life, as the culture shock slowly eases each day. “I think it’s gone well,� Kowase said. “It’s so much different.�

practice to hitting the gym. He also said, however, that he doesn’t plan on taking a golf lesson. “I’ve never thought about taking a lesson because it’s fun to me right now,� he said. “It’s a blast to play golf. I like to say I’m an artist, just painting the golf ball around the course however I see it in my head. If I ever have to get a lesson, that means I’m not playing very good, and I’m just gonna find a new job.� Beck, who turned professional in 1978, the year Watson was born, offered his more youthful co-host Watson some simple advice: “Enjoy it.� “Put your money away for the future and just enjoy the time you’re doing well, because it doesn’t last forever,� Beck said. “So just enjoy it.� Following the weekend’s win, Watson is ranked No. 10 in the Official World Golf Rankings. Watson credited the University for teaching him how to “keep working hard� in tough times after spending his senior year out of the lineup behind five All-Americans on the golf team. “As a kid, my dad called me a snot-nosed kid,� he said. “I was like all kids, thought I was smarter than everybody, thought I could get away with things my way. I learned my senior year that things don’t always go my way. I had to keep working hard and get where I am today.� Watson was not the only former Bulldog at the opening event for the Stadion Classic. NFL players A.J. Green, Matthew Stafford, Kris Durham, Shaun Chapas, Mohammed Massoquoi and former NFL player Lindsay Scott were in attendance and teed off following the check presentation. “I’m gonna try to golf,� joked Green, who arrived in Athens Sunday after visiting the Cincinnati Bengals, the team that drafted him sixth overall in this year’s NFL draft, “I know it won’t be good, but I’m gonna try.� The Stadion Classic pro-am is on Wednesday followed by four rounds in four days from Thursday to Sunday. Former Bulldog golfer Justin Bolli, a member of the 1999 national championship winning team, will be in the field after earning a sponsors exemption announced Monday.
