College takes first steps in search for dean Position to be filled by spring By DALLAS DUNCAN THE RED & BLACK The search is on for a new College of Family and Consumer Sciences dean. “It’s a national search. This is a very important position,” said Arthur Horne, dean of the
College of Education and chair of the search committee. “We put information about the search out in the Chronicle of Higher Education, and we’ll also be alerting other universities about the search.” The pursuit comes on the heels of former dean Laura Jolly’s promotion to vice president for instruction. Anne Sweaney, the housing and consumer economics department head, is serving as interim dean
and is not a candidate in the search. “Laura Jolly will have a role, but it’s in her new capacity,” Horne said. He said Jolly, Provost Jere Morehead and Vice Provost Libby Morris would be interviewing the candidates, as the position falls under their leadership. Horne said applications and nominations for the position would be due in December and said the committee hoped to be
interviewing candidates by January. “Hopefully we’ll have the process finished by March or maybe April,” he said. The 17-member committee includes FACS faculty members, students and alumnae. There are two faculty representatives from each department in the college, along with Gene Brody, Regents Professor Emeritus See FACS, Page 5
DEAN OF STUDENTS
Forums reveal student worries By POLINA MARINOVA THE RED & BLACK
BON VOYAGE Navy School bids farewell to Athens
When the University named Bill McDonald as the new Dean of Students, one student realized she had already met him. Ashton May, senior and executive director of Lambda Alliance, said she met McDonald prior to her freshman year of college. She attended an information session at Presbyterian College — where McDonald serves as vice president for student life and dean of students. “I remember he spoke to us during the day, and he was actually one of the reasons I didn’t want to go to that school because I don’t know if my views necessarily matched up with his,” May said. McDonald comes from a private college affiliated with the Presbyterian Church, and some students expressed concern about how he would work with LGBT and minority populations. According to documents obtained by The Red & Black, after a forum, one student commented, “He was particularly thrown-off by a question regarding his relationships MCDONALD with LGBT students, admitting to the fact that he Comments from does not consis- dean forums tently deal with many LGBTQ students at his private, christian [sic] college. As a gay student, this led me to question how he would interact with not only those students at UGA who identify as LGBTQ, but also other minority students on the UGA campus, as well.” When asked about his experience in working with LGBT and other minority students, McDonald later said it was “extensive.” “As a student affairs practitioner, I am involved in planning, participating and supporting a wide variety of student programs and activities, including LGBT and other underrepresented student groups,” McDonald said. “As a campus administrator, I befriend and mentor students from across the student populace I serve. And finally, as a life-long learner, I continue to seek new training to improve my understanding and ability to advocate for all students and the institution I serve.” Jennifer Miracle, director of the LGBT resource center, attended McDonald’s staff forum last spring, and she said he was the only candidate of the five to mention the LGBT community before ever specifically being asked a question pertaining to LGBT students. “I was impressed by the level of awareness he seemed to have of the LGBT community and concerns that might be unique or specific to our community,” Miracle said. “Additionally, the comments that he made gave me the impression that he had some understanding of and compassion for the issues LGBT students may face on a college campus.” However, his religious affiliation is not the only concern. Some of the Dean of Students qualifications include experience in judicial affairs, crisis management, Greek life, student leadership, student activities and

nlookers were silent and cameras flashed when University President Michael Adams and Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus signed the document ending an era for the United States Navy Supply Corps School. With Tuesday’s signing, the Navy School grounds on Prince Avenue were given to the College of Public Health and the Medical College of Georgia, which is becoming a part of the University. The Navy School will leave Athens for Newport, R.I., by the start of its next semester. In addition to Adams and Mabus, speakers included Gov. Sonny Perdue, Athens’ Mayor Heidi Davison and Ricardo Azziz, president of the Medical College. The overall mood of the speakers was bittersweet. Perdue called the signing a “historic moment.” He expressed sadness over the Navy School leaving, but looked forward to the medical college coming. “We couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful service for this wonderful campus,” Perdue said. Davison said the Navy School has been an

Campaigns gather voters as election draws closer Politicians value ties to University By UMARAH ALI THE RED & BLACK
MICHAEL BARONE| The Red & Black
S A general ban on non-University-related signs means campaign signs are not allowed on campus. Only University departments and student organizations can advertise on University property.
Candidate signs not welcome on campus Posts increase around election
but there are not as many for a midterm election as a presidential election. In addition to signs, the policy also prohibits posting on anything “that is not an approved bulletin board, including bus shelters, trash cans, walls, railings, bathroom stalls, benches, light posts, staircases, windows, doors, newspaper boxes, trees, etc.” Only registered student organizations and departments within the University may advertise on campus. In addition to the ban on signs, candidates also may not use a registered logo of the University in campaign materials without permission. “The way we handle yard signs is we give them to the party and they distribute them throughout the counties,” said Lauren Culbertson, a University alumna who works for Johnny Isakson’s Senate campaign.
By KATHRYN INGALL THE RED & BLACK If you’ve seen a few campaign signs dotting the campus landscape, they’re not supposed to be there. Campaign signs fall under a general ban against signs on campus. Doug Ross, director of auxiliary and administrative services, is in charge of enforcing the ban on these advertisements. “If we see them, we pick them up,” Ross said. “And if we see someone putting them out, we warn them not to put them out.” Ross said he notices an increase in campaign signs around election time,

Savanna Reese, communications director for the University College Republicans, said the student organization doesn’t focus on spreading signs on campus. “We give out stickers and pushcards on campus, and signs in the general Athens-Clarke County area,” Reese said. Campaign signs are acceptable if they are on private property with the consent of the owner. They are also allowed on roadsides as long as they do not obstruct traffic. Students who can’t resist giving their public support to a candidate may be interested in an loophole in the University’s policy. “The only way you could get away with [hanging up signs],” said Tom Jackson, vice president of public affairs, “would be to hang it up inside your dorm window.”

diversity programming within a large, complex university, according to documents obtained by The Red & Black. There are 1,200 undergraduates at Presbyterian College. “He just seems to not have a very good idea of how to deal with a campus of our size, and there’s a lot more diversity here than at Presbyterian College,” May said. “I just don’t understand why they would choose him out of all of the other candidates.” Shay Davis Little of the University and Mary Beth Mercatoris of the University of Texas at Austin were the two finalists of the second round. “I just felt like [Little] has been here for a while, and she knows about the University,” May said. LGBT students at the University have been pushing to add “gender identity and expression” to the University’s non-discrimination policy, but May said she’s not sure if McDonald would be able to help. “I don’t know if he’d be able to put his own views aside for the good of the students, which he might be able to ... so I hope he does,” May said. “But just from his background and when I saw him before, I don’t feel necessarily hopeful that he would be onboard with it.” But for May, McDonald isn’t what she hoped the new dean would be — different. “It makes me kind of uncomfortable,” she said. “I think we were all hoping for someone who would better relate to students and who would maybe be more understanding of diversity. There’s just something weird about this whole thing.”

Event allows open dialogue By MARIANA HEREDIA THE RED & BLACK
OPEN MIC WITH MIKE
Got a question for University President Michael Adams? Students will have a chance to talk directly to Adams at todayâ€™s Open Mic with Mike. Student Government Association President Josh Delaney said student attendance typically varies. â€œIâ€™ve been to ones where it is just me, a reporter and another person, and there are sometimes where it is standing-room only,â€? he said. Matthew Winston, the assistant to the president, said student attendance typically depends on the mood of the students. â€œIf it is a hot issue, a lot of students will show up,â€? he said. â€œIf life is good, students rely on what they read.â€? Winston said Adams ADAMS typically will leave the majority of the time in the forum to students. Delaney said he expected a variety of issues to come up at the forum. â€œThe beautiful thing about this is that there is no agenda,â€? he said. â€œI expect

important part of Athens for the last 57 years, and she canâ€™t imagine the town without it. â€œThe school leaves behind a legacy that will be around long after the school,â€? Davison said. â€œThe Navy School will sorely be missed.â€? Though speakers were disappointed about the Navy School departing, they all were happy about the medical college using its campus. Azziz pointed out the medical college will play a critical role in the stateâ€™s goal of achieving better health care. â€œWithout health, a population â€” a peoples â€” are destined to become weaker, are destined to be diminished and eventually, to fail,â€? he said. Adams pointed out the medical college will help Georgia meet its need for more
doctors, calling the signing a â€œseminalâ€? event that will affect the quality of life for both Athens and the region. â€œWeâ€™re answering the call,â€? he said. â€œFor 225 years, we have been charged to use the resources of our faculty and staff to improve the lives of the people of this state.â€? Mabus said the Navy School will always remember Athens when it moves to Rhode Island. â€œI hope and Iâ€™m confident that a part of Georgia is heading north with them,â€? he said. When they had signed the document, Adams and Mabus patted each other on their backs with smiles on their faces. â€œI am very happy to induct the handover of the Navy School to the University of Georgia,â€? Mabus said. â€œItâ€™ll be eager students and eager faces still walking the campus.â€?
anything that has been in the student news â€” tailgating, stuff with athletics, climate on campus.â€? But Winston said other topics could come up. â€œSome people come in just to thank the president for something. Others come in to complain about the dinner they just had at one of the dining halls,â€? he said. Students also will have the opportunity to get more specific help with their concerns. â€œThere are two benefits of the event. Upper-level administration will be there,â€? he said. â€œSo first, you get your issue on the presidentâ€™s radar, and second, you can get connected with upper level of administration who is more connected to your issue.â€? Delaney also said the event was important for Adams. â€œHopefully weâ€™ll have some good questions that will make him stop and think,â€? he said. â€œI know he takes these things pretty seriously in setting his agenda and in deciding what to work on.â€?

Open Sanford to community use T
he hallowed grounds of the University of Georgia boast one of the greatest establishments in this country. A temple of this nature can be found in no other place in our state. A church so grand stands alone in the face of its competition. A place so holy and revered cannot be refuted by anyone who sees it. I obviously mean Sanford Stadium. What did you think I was talking about? The beautiful Sanford Stadium has adorned our campus for close to a century now. It has been a landmark in the state for generations. It has an icon on Google Maps. Yet, as grand and beloved as Sanford Stadium is, I want all of you to think of how many times you have entered that structure (legally) over your college career. For you freshmen, that number may be just one or two times. I’m in my fifth year and I can only count about 24 or 25 times when I entered Sanford Stadium (legally) — and I even graduated from one of my majors there last May. Why has this fantastic place — unequaled and unrivaled in its grandeur — seen such little use? That, my friends, is because we are wasting that most holy shrine to the religion that is football. In any given year, Sanford’s gates will be opened on a paltry three occasions: Georgia Football, G-Day game, and graduation (alliteration unintended). Now anyone who has entered Sanford Stadium will agree with me that being in the presence of something so great is addicting. So maybe it’s just my withdrawal symptoms flaring up, but I believe we need to find more chances to use this consecrated concrete creation (alliteration intended). Some of you may argue that such a holy location must be kept pristine for such special occurrences as football. We must not let it become just some study room — like those unspeakable nerds down in Atlanta with their “Historic” Grant Field at Bobby Dodd Stadium. We’ve never even let that despicable Urban Meyer in, so we’re obviously doing something to protect the integrity of Sanford. And I would agree, it must not become a quo-
ADAM WYNN tidian place where people lounge about doing homework. But are there no other ways in which we can appropriately honor the place that has brought us fantastic ecstasy and, until two weeks ago, drowning disappointment? Can we still honor that holy ground that has known the presence of Herschel Walker, David Greene, Charley Trippi, or even the immortals Vince Dooley and Larry Munson? The most obvious option is one the supposed rival Neyland Stadium in Knoxville has taken on — hosting concerts. A few years ago, they welcomed back native son Kenny Chesney to perform in front of thousands onfield at Tennessee’s greatest architectural achievement — which is pretty sad considering the state of Neyland. And they’re not the only ones who have done so. Perhaps R.E.M., Athens’ amazing musical product, could do a concert in Sanford to raise money for the ailing Georgia Theatre? If that’s taken care of soon enough, we could raise some money for the impoverished Athens’ community — economically hindered by a dominating University. Sure, gameday does some to help the local economy. But six days out of the year aren’t enough to make up for what we do to Clarke County every day of the year. And if not concerts, perhaps we could host high school football games, or maybe even open our doors to a global sporting event such as the FIFA World Cup (what, too soon?). Some people might argue that spending the countless millions of dollars on a structure occupied fewer than 10 times a year is wasteful, but I would disagree. It’s foolish. I love Sanford Stadium, and I love this football team. But to ignore the existence of such a versatile and useful space is criminal. Let us open Sanford to the community, and use it however we can. — Adam Wynn is a senior from Dacula majoring in English
Correction Box In the Tuesday, Oct. 19 issue of The Red & Black, an opinion column submitted to this page incorrectly suggested Georgia wide receiver A.J. Green had a mugshot resulting from a crime. Green was never arrested and does not have a mugshot. His violation was with the NCAA and was not a criminal matter. The Red & Black is committed to journalistic integrity and excellence. We regret this error.

Students deserve various concerts W
hat do Bobby Valentino, Ying Yang Twins, T-Pain, Yung Joc, Soulja Boy and Ludacris all have in common? Well, you can probably think of several things. They’re all black. They’re all male. They’re all popular rap or hip-hop artists. But there’s one characteristic they share that several of you slightly younger folks out there might not be aware of. Since 2007, the year I became a student at the University, each of these artists has held concerts featured and sponsored by the University Union. The Union regularly holds events, such as debates and “Dawgs After Dark.” Their purpose is to entertain students and provide an alternative to typical Athens activities. These concerts certainly do this, but I take serious issue with the Union’s choices for its major concerts. First, the culture and “art” these musicians display represent everything an institution of higher learning should stand against. I don’t have a problem inherently with this style of music. It’s not my cup of tea, but I’ve heard plenty of rap and hip-hop that doesn’t make me hate humanity.

Unfortunately, the musicians that come to the University rarely fall into this category. Their songs go from stupid at best (“Buy U a Drank,”) to egotistical, anti-intellectual, materialistic and misogynistic at their worst (see: “Report Card” and “Whisper Song”). Further, the University Union chooses to feature only one genre of music for its major concerts, and then selects only one kind of artist to perform this music. While rap and hip-hop are certainly popular, there are many other kinds of music that people find appealing, from rock to pop to country. I’d also like to see someone of a different race or gender take the stage. This devotion to that kind of music isn’t only monotonous and boring to those of us who don’t particularly care for it. I’m sure it must go against some kind of University policy promoting diversity. If there’s not such a policy, there

Attacks on the football players are inaccurate I am all for opinion and have long been a fan of your paper and reporting. The Red & Black gives me visibility to Athens as I now reside in Newport Beach, Calif. I will be respectful and to the point. I am extremely insulted by the article published by Adam Carlson. I rarely see articles this uninformed, insulting and inaccurate. “Felonious”? Really? I, as well as every other person tied to the University of Georgia, am aware of the off-field issues this team has had. I am as bothered as anyone — possibly more, as I am a huge proponent of personal responsibility. With that said, I think not only the inaccuracies (which appear to have been corrected — thank you) but the slur of “felonious” in referring to the players is unacceptable and a joke of the representation of The Red & Black. How many felonies have there actually been? The article paints a highly inaccurate portrait of this team and program. Yes, there have been mistakes and many of these players have stood up and taken theirs. I am incensed that the use of “felonious” is allowed to head that embarrassment of an article. Mr. Carlson’s attempt to be funny or whatever it is he was attempting isn’t funny at all, in my opinion.

should be. And the fact that blacks are a minority in the country and at the University does not mean that promoting only black male artists playing the same kind of music is promoting diversity. What bothers me most? Even though I’ve never been to any of the concerts, I still have to pay for them. In fact, we all pay for these concerts. Don’t get fooled by those “Free for Students” advertisements — these concerts are paid for in fees, tuition and taxes. These concerts are no more free than a visit to Ramsey or a bus ride down Milledge Avenue. At a time when the University is struggling to keep people hired — and I can barely afford my water bill — this waste of money disturbs me. To whomever in the University Union makes these decisions — please, let’s have a little variety. I couldn’t care less for Ludacris. Find me a female Korean bluegrass player, and then you’ll have my attention. Or at least give me my money back.

When I was in school at UGA, The Red & Black stood for something. They didn’t PROTECT our football team, but they did report on relevant, current and substantiated news. The charges were dropped against Caleb King in the “loan scandal.” Carlson’s comment about A.J. Green being seen in ANY mugshot is downright wrong. Washaun Ealey deserved the suspension he got for a minor hit and run accident that didn’t involve alcohol. My point is that The Red & Black has had a great name and the current guys who are digging up old stories are making it pathetic. I’m sad to see this. No other credible newspaper or website is even concerning themselves with such things. The Red & Black guys are trying to look cool by making fun of their older brother in front of their friends. It’s not so cool when plenty of people know that you are overstating every single thing you say. You won’t print this because it is the truth and it is criticism of your staff. But, I say again, it is the truth. JAKE ROWE Alumnus, Pearson Special education
Possible smoking ban stirs student opinions Overall, I see the possible smoking ban on campus not being very effective. Smoking is not something that is just exclusive to students; faculty and staff also smoke. Idealistically, people would respect the ban and the transition

would go smoothly. But this isn’t something that can be completely enforced. What would the ban entail? You can’t smoke right outside class buildings or bus stops? What about non-students who drive through campus — would they get pulled over if they were smoking? This is not something that can be policed very well. This idea of banning something that is not actually illegal and a large portion of the population participates in is a little ridiculous. STEVEN BOYLE Senior, Woodstock Gainesville State College
Undocumented students waste taxpayer dollars Let’s stop calling them “undocumented” students. They are illegally in our country, and they are illegal aliens. Stop using the “politically correct” term. I don’t care if one or 1,000 illegals go to our colleges — even one illegal alien using our tax dollars to go to c™ollege is too many. They don’t pay taxes — they shouldn’t be allowed to siphon off of our tax dollars for their own personal use. I am glad for the Board of Regents’ ruling. Maybe if the millions of illegals who come here had waited their turn, those “poor people” who applied in 1992 would have gotten in sooner.

Sigma Delta Tauâ€™s annual Greek Grind event and fundraiser hits The Classic Center tonight, featuring sixteen sororities, all Panhellenic members. â€œI donâ€™t know how it started exactly,â€? said Jamie Lincenberg, Sigma Delta Tau member and Greek Grind coordinator. â€œIt was a good idea and UGA didnâ€™t have anything
like it.â€? That good idea has benefitted Prevent Child Abuse America â€” Sigma Delta Tauâ€™s national philanthropy â€” to the tune of $15,000 annually. â€œThe profits are bigger each year, and everything is donated,â€? said Lincenberg. â€œThe only expense is the rental of [The Classic Center].â€? Within each sorority the number of members participating, as well as their reasons for doing so, vary.
GREEK GRIND When: 7:30 p.m. Where: The Classic Center Price: Sold Out Only about 2,100 tickets are available for Greek Grind, and all were sold out within the participating sororities â€” before being offered to the public. â€œWeâ€™ve thought about doing it at the [Stegeman] Coliseum,â€?

Classic Center provides lighting, music, et cetera.â€? Participating sororities take Greek Grind seriously, even if such seriousness is masked by fun. â€œI love that everyone gets really into it and the audience goes absolutely nuts,â€? said sophomore English and philosophy major Alex Seabolt, Gamma Phi Beta Greek Grind participant. â€œIt is so fun when youâ€™re on stage to listen to everyone cheering for you.â€?
FACS: Dean should promote college Â˘ From Page 1 and Director for the Center for Family Research, interim director of FACS Extension Elizabeth Andress, Connie Rash, assistant director of student services, and Ginny Lyman, director of financial services. Horne said the committee members were chosen based on their leadership in the college. He chaired searches before, but said this was the first time he was in charge of a dean search. â€œGenerally I believe the president and the provost select a dean to chair a dean search committee,â€? Horne said. â€œThereâ€™s been very good collaboration between FACS and the College of Education for years. We have joint programs and an overall good relationship.â€? Camille Blair, a junior from Commerce who serves FACS as both ambassador and senator, said she does wish there were more students on the search committee. â€œThe faculty part is really important, but Dr. Jolly was very good at interacting with students,â€? she said. Blair said both Jolly and Sweaney leave high expectations for the new dean. â€œWe were really sad to see her go,â€? she said. â€œBut it helped promote our college because people donâ€™t know about FACS. It speaks well for our college because our dean was promoted to such a high position.â€? So far, Horne said the committee was not targeting a specific candidate. Horne said he felt the dean should advocate for research, scholarship, teaching and outreach. â€œThe dean should have expertise in one of the areas of family and consumer sciences,â€? he said. â€œThen they have to demonstrate theyâ€™ve been good scholars and researchers, and also need to have a strong commitment to the landgrant mission.â€? Horne added it was also vital the dean promote alumni relationships to help improve both the college and the University. â€œI feel that the job of the dean should be to mainly represent the college in a way UGA can see and make it a place students will want to go to learn,â€? Blair said. Horne said students and faculty not on the search committee would have chances to interact with candidates throughout the process. â€œThere will be multiple opportunities for additional inputs,â€? he said, adding these would include presentations by the candidates and open student forums. Blair said she liked the idea of student input. She said she thinks the person who gets the position should continue the close familial ties and relationships in the college. â€œThey should work toward an openness in the college,â€? Blair said. â€œThis sounds corny, but they have to have a big smile on their face â€Ś and do a good job of filling Dean Jollyâ€™s shoes.â€?

Mark Richt said he wants his players to be the “nastiest looking” team in the country at season’s end. The head coach isn’t promoting poor personal hygiene. He isn’t telling his players to stay out of the showers. However, he is bending his usual facial hair rules as an added incentive for his boys in relation to the turnover margin. “We’ve got some furry guys on the team lately,” quarterback Aaron Murray said. Richt’s normal facial hair policy is simple — mustaches are OK, beards are not. But as a small incentive for his players, he implemented a policy that would allow his players to grow facial hair however they want — as long as the Bulldogs win the turnover battle on the field each week. “Anytime we win the turnover ratio, they get to grow their beards as long as they want,” Richt said. “We actually started it last year, but unfortunately we were clean-shaven all year. That was a bad sign. This year they’re getting a little furrier. You learn who can grow a beard in a hurry.” Richt’s rule is from game to game, but if a game is “a wash” then Richt said he turns to the season’s turnover margin. The Bulldogs are plusthree in the turnover battle through the first seven games, which has allowed fullback Fred

S Aaron Murray stays clean-shaven despite Georgia’s turnover margin. Munzenmaier and tight end Arthur Lynch to take the lead on the team with the fullest beards. “I love it. It makes me wanna get turnovers. I don’t like to shave,” linebacker Christian Robinson
said. “I would love to have a nasty beard like Arthur Lynch has right now.” Murray said he was scruffy last week, but at the firm request of his mother he cleaned up his five o’clock shadow,
FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK though he said he can only grow a beard in “patches right now.” “I got a little fuzzy last week. [My mom] likes it clean-cut,” Murray said. “I gotta make mommy happy because my birthday’s coming up soon so I want some good gifts, and she’s threatening me if I don’t keep it clean I’m not gonna get anything good this year.” Richt said while players such as Munzenmaier and Lynch can grow beards, some players don’t have facial hair, like center Ben Jones. But Robinson said it’s further motivation for him because he wants the added freedom of growing a beard. “There’s certain guys that they really don’t care about the no-shave rule because they can’t grow it, but I don’t wanna shave so I’m gonna fight to get those turnovers,” Robinson said. Wide receiver Kris Durham said he likes to have “scruff” because he doesn’t care to shave, but the no-shaving incentive is just “icing on the cake” to producing on the field. “If we can cause turnovers and get good field position then we put ourselves in the right situations to win the game,” Durham said. Fellow wide receiver Tavarres King said the noshaving rule in relation to the turnover margin is a rallying point for the team, even though it is a small incentive within the team. “I really enjoy that rule. I feel like it gives us something to fight for, even if it’s not nothing huge,” King said. “Everybody wants to have their facial hair and not look like a little kid.” Comeback Wildcats In his weekly Tuesday news conference, Richt said he, the players and the staff are more than well aware of the comeback potential Kentucky has shown in the past, especially in its win over South Carolina last week. “They’ve actually had 14 games since 2006 where they were losing in the fourth quarter and came back and won, so those guys are very, very resilient,” Richt said. “They are not going to give in.” And after coming off a shutout for the first time in nearly a year, linebacker Akeem Dent said the Wildcats’ offense — which is averaging nearly 430 yards per game — has a fight in it that will prove to be a “big test” for the Bulldogs’ defense. “That team is gonna fight until there’s no time left on that clock in the fourth quarter,” Dent said. “They kinda started slow, but they’ve been able to finish, and that’s one of the main things that stands out to us as a team. They’re able to finish strong, so we’re gonna have to play for 60 minutes.”
