Gadhafi killed in shootout Emily Davis The Battalion Ending a nearly 42-year dictatorial regime over the Libyan people, Moammar Gadhafi is dead. After Libyan rebels discovered and captured Gadhafi, who was hiding in a drainage pipe on Thursday, the dictator was reportedly shot in the head during an ensuing shootout between rebels and pro-Gadhafi loyalists. Gadhafi is the third Arab leader to be driven out of power during the Arab Spring, following the leaders of Tunisia and Egypt. The Libyan conflict began in February of this year.

Gadhafi came into power in 1969 and during his time as an authoritarian ruler, Gadhafi and his family controlled much of Libya’s oil-rich economy and became quite wealthy, while many Libyans lived in poverty. Gadhafi was also an international sponsor of terrorism, supplying arms and ammunition to militants and terrorist groups. Even with Gadhafi’s passing, questions about Libya’s future remain. Richard MacNamee, professor in the Bush School’s graduate program in international affairs, said Libya’s problems may just be beginning.

“The world is probably a better place without people like him in power,” MacNamee said. “But this is not the end. It is now a more volatile time because they are entering a time of huge instability.” Eric Busche, sophomore international studies major, agrees that Gadhafi’s death could lead to turmoil. “He was a very oppressive dictator and he committed a lot of human rights violations, but as we’ve seen with rest of the Arab Spring, especially in Egypt, ousting an oppressive dictator doesn’t automatically lead to See Gadhafi on page 3

Freshman forward Kelley Monogue has found the back of the net 13 times this season and leads the Big 12 in goals scored.

Beyond expectations Freshman forward Kelley Monogue sparks A&M offense James Solano The Battalion High expectations accompanied freshman Kelley Monogue to Aggieland when she chose to adorn the maroon and white. With three conference games remaining, it’s safe to say her stalwart start has been even better than expected. The freshman forward scored her first collegiate goal against a

top-25 Florida squad in a 2–3 loss back in August, and has not looked back since. Monogue currently leads the nation’s top-ranked offense and is the Big 12 conference’s leading scorer, with 13 goals and 33 points on the season, ranking nationally at No. 15 and 17 for points and goals scored, respectively. But Monogue credits her team and upperclassman

for her success. “Being younger has its benefits,” Monogue said. “The older girls push me to be better, so it makes me stand out more. And when I’m playing with such talented girls it brings me to a new level that I haven’t played at before.” Hailing from McKinney, Texas, Monogue was a high school socSee Monogue on page 4

Aggie Replant brings green touch to B-CS

Austin Meek The Battalion Fresh off two wins against in-state rivals, the No. 17 Texas A&M football team heads north to Ames, Iowa, for the most distant away game on its conference schedule. The Aggies’ 55-28 win against Baylor featured standout performances from the Ryans — senior quarterback Ryan Tanehill and junior wide receiver Ryan Swope. Tannehill torched the Bears’ secondary for six touchdown passes, four of which landed in the hands of the team’s reception leader, Swope. “It’s a real special combination I think,” head coach Mike Sherman said. “I think it’s become that way because of the way they both practice, they practice at game speed. When you do that, the game is not too fast. Things don’t change so the timing and the tempo of the play exists in practice and carries over to the game. It allows them the opportunity to be on the same page on gameday.” Strong offensive performances against Bay-

The Battalion Aggies have long taken pride in the University’s traditions and core values of excellence, integrity, leadership, loyalty, respect, and selfless service. On Saturday, more than 1,000 students will continue the tradition of service by planting 300 trees around the University campus, College Station and Bryan. Replant began in 1991 as a way to offset the trees lost to bonfire’s construction every fall. That spring, a few dozen students led by the chair of the Student Senate’s Environmental Issues Committee planted a few hundred trees around the campus and B-CS area. Replant Day was designated an Aggie tradition the following fall and has continued to grow and expand, now with hundreds of student participants planning and planting Replant Day every fall.

nation&world Exotic-animal owner ‘in over his head’ in debt ZANESVILLE, Ohio — The exotic-animal owner who killed himself after turning loose dozens of lions, tigers and other beasts was deep in debt, and a fellow big-cat enthusiast said Thursday that he had taken in so many creatures he was “in over his head.” A day after sheriff’s deputies with high-powered rifles killed nearly 50 animals set free by Terry Thompson, the sheriff refused to speculate why he did it. Many neighbors, meanwhile, were puzzled as to why Thompson — a man who seemed to like animals more than people — would lash out in a way that would doom his pets. However, court records show that he and his wife owed at least $68,000 in unpaid taxes to the IRS and the county, and

he had two federal tax liens filed against him last year. He had just gotten out of federal prison last month for possessing unregistered weapons. Kenny Hetrick, who has six tigers and other animals on his property outside Toledo, said he used to see Thompson at exotic-animal auctions a few times a year in Ohio. Many of Thompson’s tigers had been donated to him by people who bought baby animals that they no longer wanted once they started to grow, Hetrick said. On Tuesday, Thompson, 62, threw open the cages at his animal preserve and committed suicide. His body was found near the empty cages with a bite on the head that appeared to have been inflicted by a big cat shortly after Thompson shot himself, Sheriff Matt Lutz said. It appeared his body had been dragged a short distance, Lutz said. Associated Press

NEW YORK — There have been a lot of police officers keeping an eye on the Occupy Wall Street protest and a lot of protesters keeping their eyes on the police — but probably only one officer who’s been looked at for what he’s wearing as much as what he’s doing. A plainclothes officer who’s been working as a community affairs agent at the lower Manhattan protest is gaining some Internet fame for his un-stereotypical appearance, like a cool college professor. Detective Rick Lee has been nicknamed the Hipster Cop online in blog posts due to his morefashionable-than-your-average-officer look, replete with cardigans, skinny ties, professorialstyle glasses and side-swept hair. Lee, 45, said people have a perception of police officers as old and staid and “then they meet me, they’re like, `Oh, he’s cool.’” Lee works in the 1st Precinct, which includes Zuccotti Park, where the protesters have been since mid-September.

clean up and we’ll continue to work on those things and hopefully get there.” The Aggies’ next opportunity to practice what their coach preaches will come this Saturday against the Cyclones in their homecoming game. Since sweeping its non-conference schedule, Iowa State has opened up Big 12 play with losses to Baylor, Texas and last week’s 5214 thrashing at Missouri. “Iowa State is a good football team,” Tannehill said. “We have great respect for them. They are playing at home, and anytime you play a team at home it will be a tough game. They’ve had a couple tough losses, but we have respect for them and there’s no letting off.” The Cyclones’ primary offensive threats are quarterback Steele Jantz, running back James White and wide receiver Darius Reynolds. White, picking up 5.3 yards per carry, leads the rushing attack with five touchdowns, and Reynolds ranks fifth in the Big 12 with 87.0 receiving yards per game. Jantz makes plays through the air and the ground, a skill set similar to that of Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, whom the Aggies tried to bottle up last Saturday. Sherman said game planning against Griffin last week will help the Ags prepare for Jantz’ unique talents. “Everyone has their own little nuances, but I do think playing against Robert prepares us for the mobility we’ll face,” Sherman said. “Hopefully we can handle what he will present.” Defensive coordinator Tim DeRuyter said White’s game film has impressed him and Iowa State will challenge A&M’s fundamentals.

“He’s fast, has good balance and is a shifty guy,” DeRuyter said. “He’s good enough to burst and make people miss. The quarterback is part of their run game and that adds additional stress. He’s a good, effective runner and when they can spread you out, you have to be sound.” Texas A&M’s offensive players will be on the lookout for the Cyclones’ fearsome linebacking combo of Jake Knott and A.J. Klein. On the Butkus Award watch list for best linebacker in the country, Knott leads the Big 12 with 63 tackles at a clip of 10.5 per game, and Klein’s 48 tackles are good for eighth in the conference. Tannehill knows how important a road win in Ames could end up being in the grand scheme of the conference standings. “We’ve had a couple tough losses but we feel we are in the thick of this thing on the road to the Big 12 Championship,” Tannehill said. “We still feel like we’re in it and until it’s proved differently we’re going to believe that. The road starts Saturday against Iowa State.”

a better situation,” Busche said. “It will probably be a large power vacuum, and there will be a lot of conflict over who will step in to rule.” MacNamee said that America should take note that the rebels were able to track down and defeat Gadhafi without very much American interference. “This is a model that can be used elsewhere,” MacNamee said. “Allowing nations to take control of their own problems, not intervening and making problems worse.” The U.S. did not commit any ground troops to assist the Libyan rebels, but did take a lead role disabling Libyan aircraft defense systems early in the Libyan conflict, following a March United Nations Security Council Resolution authorizing a no-fly zone. Several weeks after beginning the airstrikes, President Barack Obama announced that the U.S. would cede control to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

sustainable and service-oriented,” said Winston Manley, Replant director and senior international business major. Part of Replant’s commitment to sustainability lies in the year-long task of maintaining a tree farm at Riverside campus, located approximately 10 miles from main campus off of Highway 47. “The purpose of the tree farm is to supplement the trees we use on Replant Day. We’re going to be revamping everything soon and updating a lot of the equipment to provide a buffer against bad weather,” said Eric Goodell, tree team executive and senior mechanical engineering major. “We’re also considering growing some baby Century Trees to sell to alumni.” The deadline to register to participate in Replant Day past last week, but there are other options for students interested in giving back and helping Replant. Aside from monetary donations, the Aggie Replant leaders encouraged students to get involved and donate their time and effort back to the community. “Another way for people to give back would be to help out with our work on Earth Day and Arbor Day in the spring,” said Kohen Sablatura, finance executive

MacNamee said that because America had so little direct involvement with the Libyan rebels, the U.S. does not have to worry about repercussions from Gadhafi loyalists. MacNamee said Gadhafi’s death may have serious implications for oil. “[Gadhafi’s death] could impact oil,” MacNamee said. “We have got this nation state which is a major oil producer, and we need to see how this unfolds.” Ben Rowe, senior political science major, said that Libya might actually have a decent chance to form a democratic government now, instead of falling into turmoil. “Right now, I can imagine that they have a strong chance to form a stable democracy,” Rowe said. “[If] They can get that up and running, that country has a great future ahead of it.” Rowe said that Gadhafi’s death could mean a turn for the better for many people and for the world. “It’s a victory in the battle of getting rid of these regimes that are cruel and show no basic rights for people,” Rowe said. “It’s a victory for democracy and world peace.”

and senior business major, of how Aggies can donate to Replant. Through their year-round work, Replant, in conjunction with the campus landscape maintenance staff, has helped Texas A&M be recognized as a “Tree Campus USA” college by the Arbor Day foundation. The designation recognizes campuses based on certain values, including management of trees located on the campus, service work that takes students outside of the campus to make connections in the community and develop urban forests, and encouraging students to use service learning opportunities both on the campus and in the community. Replant’s continuous on- and off-campus work and community outreach programs helped to obtain this designation for the University. Replant leaders say the organization’s mission is still true to its original ideals: that A&M students should strive to selflessly serve the community, maintain sustainability and ensure bonfire can continue as an Aggie tradition “Replanting is what sustainable forestry operations do. It’s a way of making bonfire a sustainable operation,” said Nick Noble, associate director of Replant and senior forestry major, adding, “I have a great time; Replant Day is my favorite day of the year.”

cer prodigy. Alongside fellow Aggie freshman Meghan Streight, Monogue led McKinney Boyd to state championships in 2008 and 2011, capturing nearly every “AllEverything” award, and landing on the ESPN RISE Winter All-American team in 2011. The Aggies in Monogue’s family — father, Dan, class of 1980 and sister, Danielle, class of 2009 — may have had some influence in her decision to play soccer at A&M, but it was the premier facilities and gameday atmosphere at Ellis Field that lured Monogue to Aggieland. “The atmosphere of games is like nothing else,” Monogue said, as she described her first visit to Ellis Field. “Visiting other schools, everybody had the same to offer about facilities and everything else, but [at A&M] I think that the coaching and the team

and the atmosphere in general is off the charts.” Monogue admitted to having a slow start to the season, not finding the back of the net until her third game. But as the young team — which features 10 freshmen — began to connect on and off the field, they played more cohesively, which allowed individual players to excel. “I had a slow start, but [a lot of] it was coming into a new team,” Monogue said. “Once we beat North Carolina, which I think was a turning point for a lot our players, I became comfortable playing my style and how I like to play, really put into me playing better.” The Tarheels were No. 1 and undefeated when the Aggies came from behind for a thrilling 4-3 overtime victory. The Aggies have won eight out of 10 games, and Monogue has been an integral part of the potent A&M offense, scoring five of her 13 goals in the past three A&M matches — all victories. Monogue scored her first

collegiate hat trick against Fordham earlier this season. Head coach G Guerrieri said Monogue’s ability to bring the team around her and quickness around the goal makes her a dangerous player on the field. “She scored two [goals], and really almost scored two others that were just a hair wide,” Guerrieri said after A&M’s 2–0 blanking of Texas Tech, where Monogue scored the game’s only two goals. Monogue racked her third Big 12 Newcomer of the Week award in four weeks this past Monday, after the forward scored two goals in the Aggie’s 6–1 victory over Drake last Friday. “I like to get the ball at my feet and play with the people around me,

playing them in,” Monogue said. “I like to shoot, too. So if I get an open shot, then I’ll take a shot.” Monogue is geared up for a challenging conference weekend at home, as the Aggies will play Oklahoma Friday at Ellis Field and Oklahoma State on Sunday. “We obviously know what it takes to beat a team like [Oklahoma State],” Monogue said. “It’s a lot of hard work, so this week we’re just trying to get our bodies prepared and mentally prepare ourselves for this weekend, so that we can be at our best.” Though a conference and national standout, Monogue draws inspiration from her teammates and coaches. “The older girls pushing us makes

me want to be better,” Monogue said. “I think that we have really good chemistry and all get along very well, so I think that has put a stride in us to get better.” Monogue is an allied health major, with expectations of succeeding as a student athlete while helping the team reach national prominence, both in the Big 12 and in future seasons in the Southeastern Conference. “I want to make sure I keep up my grades and push to be as best as I can be,” Monogue said. “I think that I can really strive to be better than I am right now, and as a team, I think that as long as we gel and mesh throughout the years that is a really good thing to have.”
