Community bids ‘adieu’ to Northport favorite By Jordan Staggs Contributing Writer After 17 years, The Globe Restaurant in historic downtown Northport is closing its doors on Saturday. Many citizens of Northport and Tuscaloosa will be mourning the loss of this highly praised establishment, which has long been an active supporter of the University of Alabama’s theatre and dance programs. Owner and head chef Jeff Wilson opened The Globe with the mind to bring some culture into the area. The restaurant’s name was coined from Shakespeare’s famous Globe Theatre in London, and its theme has helped to set the Renaissance tone of downtown Northport, well known for its art galleries and festivals such as Kentuck. “A lot of people are very sad about The Globe,” said Guy Fauchon, a graduate teaching assistant in the University’s theatre department. “Jeff is a great guy and a great actor, and his restaurant will be missed.” Wilson is very active in the Tuscaloosa theatre community. He recently appeared in Theatre Tuscaloosa’s production of “Doubt.” The Globe’s contributions to the theatre department have included holding departmental meetings there and donating food for shows’ opening night receptions. The restaurant itself offers a relaxed atmosphere with unique design. Stone archways and ambient lighting suggest its historical influences. Photos and clippings of the restaurant’s history adorn the walls, telling the tale of its prominence in the community.

By Patty Vaughan Staff Reporter Money expenditures have been a consistent problem for the average college student for decades, but this is the time for students to be extremely cautious with their spending due to the economy and summer approaching. Students can start preparing

for the summer and fall months to have the extra money they always need “Right now, what [students] need to be doing is looking for a part-time job and also think-

ing about saving as opposed to spending,” said Caroline Fulmer, an assistant professor in consumer sciences. Students should start thinking about what they currently

Beginning in the fall semester of 2009, the Honors College will begin its new peer-to-peer mentoring program. This program will be different from other mentoring programs on campus in that it is limited to Honors College freshmen and

will be operated exclusively by Honors College students and faculty. This mentoring program will also be geared toward specific opportunities open through the Honors College. Jacqueline Morgan, director of the UA Honors College, will be working with the program. “This will be a combination

for students to learn how to expand their interests and passions and to have some unique experiences at the University,” Morgan said. The idea for a new advising program came from the new Honors College Student Advisor Board, a group of 12 students who have been meeting since last spring to discuss ways to

improve the college, as a way to create a system of community within the college, Morgan said. Anna Foley, a sophomore in the Honors College, agreed to head the student portion of the program. Foley said she wanted to promote the program so incoming

Bryce’s dome is a landmark of the Tuscaloosa skyline and might soon become a symbol of the University. How to preserve the hospital has stumped both the University and Bryce’s chief staff members. According to the Bryce Hospital Fact Sheet, Bryce’s history dates back to the early 1800s with Dorthea Dix. Dix was a reformer who devoted her life to the welfare of the mentally ill and poor. In Dix’s personal report “A Memorial” she said patients were treated as animals. Many were locked in cages, chained and beaten with rods. As Dix worked with state governments to establish mental health facilities she connected with Alabama Gov. Henry Collier. Collier, Dix and Sen. Robert Jemison hired the most influential architect of mental institutions in history, Thomas Kirkbride, to build a hospital in Alabama. Kirkbride said

his “Kirkbride Plan” had a curative effect on patients. His hospitals had long, rambling wings staggered so each connected but still received sunlight and fresh air. Kirkbride saw the Alabama Insane Hospital, which opened in 1861, as his best building, and it soon became a center for mental illness research. According to the Encyclopedia of Alabama: Bryce Hospital, Dix requested 26-year-old Peter Bryce as the hospital’s first superintendent. Bryce devoted the rest of his life to the hospital that now bears his name. Bryce used a form of treatment that was later dubbed as “moral treatment,” according to an article from the Alabama Department of Archives and History. This form treated patients with respect and courtesy. He strayed from the practices Dix had reported and treated his patients like people. Just as Kirkbride had intended, Bryce ran the hospital as a self-providing establishment equipped with a patient-run farm, newspaper and choir. After Bryce died in 1892, the hospital began a slow decline that reached rock bottom in 1971. During this time, treatment began to slip back to it how it used to be. Almost every year the state

legislature cut funding for the hospital, making survival, at the time, nearly impossible, according to a report from the Alabama Department of Mental Health. Also according to the Bryce fact sheet, the hospital was built to house 300 patients. According to 1971 reports, the Alabama Department of Mental Health estimated the population was 5,732 with only 10 full-time staff physicians and three psychiatrists. This was the largest patient load of any state in the nation. Rooms no bigger than residence hall bedrooms on campus today were housing four to five patients. According to the Minnesota Governor’s Council on Developmental Disabilities, a journalist who suspected Bryce to be over-crowded, visited the hospital and reported that many patients were strapped, soiled and lacking any semblance of treatment. Ricky Wyatt, a former patient at Bryce who was healthy yet not allowed to leave, was interviewed at the University in 2007 and said he remembers how people were treated. “[Orderlies] would take people who had head injuries and see how far they could walk down the halls,” he said. With the help of two attorneys, Jack Drake and George Dean, Wyatt was chosen to bring change to the now debauched hospital. Wyatt sued then-superintendent Stonewall Stickney, demanding that if he was not being treated he should be allowed to leave, according to the case summary of Wyatt v. Stickney at Carol Stickney, Stonewall Stickney’s wife, was also interviewed in 2007. “Stone knew there needed to be change and saw this lawsuit as a way to bring change,” she said in the interview. Judge Frank M. Johnson ruled that if a patient was not

“Many of the sections of the Oregon Trail still show signs of these people passing over 150 years ago,” he said. Braden urges people that are interested in storytelling, reading and history to come to the lecture. The lecture will be about 40 minutes long, and he said he thinks it will be a fun event for the students at the University. There will also be a time at the end for questions so the students can learn more in depth details about his journey. Braden will sign books as well. Jessica Lacher-Feldman, curator of Rare Books and Special Collections, is involved with the event as well. “People should come to this event because this will definitely be an interesting lecture,” she said.

receiving regular treatment he or she should be allowed to leave. That ruling was the first of many mental health lawsuits that gave legal rights to those affected by mental illnesses. The case also mandated minimum standards of care, established basic patient rights and reduced patient populations. The method of warehousing patients had now become illegal. Through these rulings, the Alabama Department of Mental Health believe that Bryce is a symbol of civil rights much like the Edmund Pettus bridge or 16th street Baptist Church. Davis said the hospital has again fallen onto hard times. Patients are now housed in outlying buildings rather than the original Kirkbride facility. Yet this facility is on the National Registry for historic buildings. Davis said he knows something must be done to preserve this beautiful structure, but said he does not think Bryce nor the University has the funding needed. He has spent the past 10 years collecting recreation equipment, barber chairs, books and musical instruments that were used by Bryce patients. “I don’t know what I’m going to do with them, but I feel they need to be kept,” Davis said. Davis said he thinks a museum needs to be built. He said he has support but no funding, but he said he hopes the possible purchase of the hospital by the University will bring the funding he needs to set up a respectable museum. Those interested in getting involved with preservation can contact the Bryce Hospital Historical Committee at the Office of Alabama Department of Mental Health and Mental Retardation at (334) 242-3417 or email Steve Davis at steve. d av i s @ b r yc e . m h . a l ab a m a . gov.

Gays are Americans, too Earlier this week, two of our columnists, Ian Sams and Jon Reed, made reference to the recent Iowa State Supreme Court ruling that will allow gay marriages in the Hawkeye State. Shortly after, legislators in Vermont passed a bill over the governor’s veto allowing gay marriages to be performed in the Green Mountain State. These two joined Massachusetts and California in finally allowing for equal rights between gays, lesbians and straights. All we can think is, “it’s about time.” But that got us on to something else, why is it that only four states have deigned to give civil rights to

all of their citizens and 46 still have not, let alone the Federal Government? Some cite religious reasons for denying rights to a segment of the population, and say that the United States was founded on Christian principles. While we believe wholeheartedly in the freedoms of speech and expression, we find that suggesting that the denial of the freedoms many of us enjoy to others among us simply because they are not like us to be repugnant. Government’s place has never been to legislate morality, but that’s exactly what the government has been involved

in since the passage of the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996. The act states that, “No state (or other political subdivision within the United States) needs to treat a relationship between persons of the same sex as a marriage, even if the relationship is considered a marriage in another state.” Such a clause seems, to us, to spurn the Constitutional obligations contained in the Full Faith and Credit Clause, which states, “Full faith and credit ought to be given in each state to the public acts, records, and judicial proceedings, of every other state.”

The two are decidedly contradictory, and that analysis ignores the obvious problems denying rights to gays and lesbians creates under the Equal Protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. Somehow, though, we continue to find ways to deny the right to marry to gay Americans, with the tally after the 2008 elections standing at 28 states with constitutional amendments to their respective constitutions denying the right to marry whomever one might please. And that’s the fundamental question, here. We are denying the right to marry to gay Americans while

The silence epidemic April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, a designation created by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center to help educate the public on sexual violence and how to prevent it. In honor of this month, the Women’s Resource Center hosted its annual “Take Back the Night” program on Tuesday. I think college students are the ones who need this education the most. Statistically, we are one group that faces a high risk of sexual violence, yet we grossly underestimate our vulnerability. According to studies by The National Alliance to End Sexual Violence, an advocacy group for sexual assault awareness, 25 percent of women will either be raped or experience attempted rape during their college careers. That’s one in every four of your female friends. But it’s just not a female thing. According to a study by the U.S. Department of Justice, about one in every 10 men is a victim of sexual assault. We might think we’re invincible, but the statistics prove otherwise. New York University graduate Maria Besedin was raped four years ago in a New York subway station. She recently filed a suit against the Metropolitan Transit Authority and the two transit workers who witnessed the attack. In 2005, the recent graduate was on the subway towards Queens (a trip she often made) when she realized something wasn’t right. The only other person in the subway car started touching her feet. At the next stop, Besedin ran off the car and up the stairs with her attacker in pursuit. When she reached the top, she made

Callie Corley eye contact with a clerk in the attendant’s booth as her attacker caught her and started pulling her back down the stairs. “I actually was thinking, ‘Oh thank god, I’m saved. Someone’s here that can help me. This is going to be done in no time and I’m safe,’” she told “Today’s” Meredith Vieira on Wednesday. In response, the clerk notified central command that police officers were needed by pressing a button. However, this did nothing to stop the attacker. At the bottom of the stairs, Besedin was raped and her life threatened. While this was happening, another train pulled into the station and left again. Although she made eye contact with the train’s conductor, he, too only notified central command that the police were needed. By the time police arrived 10 minutes later, the attacker fled the station and hasn’t been caught yet. Why is this story relevant, four years after its occurrence? Because only this month did Besedin go public about her attack. A National Institute for Justice study found that the majority of rapes and sexual assaults are never reported

to authorities. Although women on college campuses are at a higher risk for sexual assault, they are unlikely to come forward. The same study reported that only 5 percent of college victims report what happened to campus or city police. Besedin found that speaking out about the attacked helped ease the nightmares, depression and anxiety she’s felt for the past years. “The more I got to speak out about my story, the better I felt,” she said. “The most wonderful thing was that other women would start to come forward about their own stories that they never told anyone else.” At the “Take Back the Night” rally on Tuesday, speakers stressed how victims shouldn’t be afraid or ashamed about what happened. The only way for justice to be served is for victims to come forward and report or name their attackers. The judge presiding over her lawsuit claimed that the two MTA attendants “had taken prompt and decisive action” by alerting authorities about the incident and cannot be held responsible. Besedin’s attorney said they will repeal the judgment. The wheels of justice may turn slowly, but justice will prevail in the end. If you or someone you know has been the victim of or affected by sexual assault, please seek help. The Women’s Resource Center is equipped to handle any issue relating to sexual violence. Don’t suffer in silence. Callie Corley is a senior majoring in political science and journalism. Her column runs on Fridays.

simultaneously rewarding their straight counterparts with tax benefits and the permission to marry, as long as they only like sleeping with someone of the opposite sex. And we think that’s unacceptable. This is 2009; it’s no longer okay to have segregation, slavery or outright racial discrimination in laws at any level of government. Why then — we ask — does it continue to be permissible for governments to deny rights to some while granting those same rights to others? It’s high time other states followed the examples set by Iowa and Vermont and

started treating their citizens as equals instead of labeling them gay and straight. We are all Americans, and our sexual preferences have no bearing on that. We are citizens by birth, except that 28 states tell their gay citizens that they are not equal to straight citizens. We reject that idea wholeheartedly and completely. Either we are all equal, or none of us are. At least four states have recognized that. But what is wrong with the rest?

Our View is the consensus of The Crimson White’s Editorial Board.

I enjoy not dying after eating After eating nothing but meal plan-approved UA cuisine, tuna salad and ramen noodles for three and a half years, I was excited to finally have a place with a kitchen in which I could flex my culinary muscles. Turns out, however, food is expensive, even though I can whip up a delicious meal of my own design for about half the price of single meal from the “Bama Bronze” meal plan. Given the cash I begrudgingly fork over to Bruno’s every couple weeks, the least they can provide me with is the satisfaction of knowing my food isn’t going to kill me. Actually, the job of keeping my food impending doom-free falls to the U.S. government, and I can’t say I have been pleased with their track record in these past few years. Lethal lettuce, toxic tomatoes and plagued peanut butter have combined to put my faith in corporate quality control and U.S. Food and Drug Administration oversight at an all-time low. I happen to enjoy eating, and I certainly don’t want to research every product I intend to buy to ensure that it isn’t carrying the latest microbial death machine into my gut. Thankfully, President Barack Obama seems to share my views, as he has taken a far more proactive approach to food safety on the national scale. The New York Times reported on April 7 that Obama’s administration “urged” Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella to recall its entire 2008 pistachio crop — a recommendation upon which the company acted quickly. This is not the first time a company has been told to issue a sweeping recall of a food product; it is, however, the first time the government has told consumers to avoid a product before

Matt Ferguson anyone had reported cases of illness from the food. To me, this represents a long-needed revolution in the handling of public safety — particularly in the food industry. I recall a professor from one of my classes talking about how companies analyze the necessity of recalls by calculating the average “value” of a human life (in dollars) using a formula derived from a worker’s income and remaining years during which he can work. They estimate how many people are likely to be killed by the defective product and determine the approximate total court costs and payouts to grieving families (based on the aforementioned value of life). If the cost is less than that of a recall, they simply let the product ride and hope to lose an acceptable amount of consumers. Economics can be a cold profession, but watching your loyal customers die due to your incompetence just to save the bottom line borders on sinister. Hopefully, the Obama administration will not soften its current

stance on this issue and will, if necessary, impose punitive measures on companies foolish enough to place profits above peace of mind. Action should be taken the moment the lab workers find harmful contaminants in a company’s product; not months down the road when the product is stocked everywhere and the first reports of deaths start rolling in. Recalls should be swift and grand in scope when contaminated products are identified. It took a month for Peanut Corporation of America to switch recalls from just a few batches to several years’ worth of product that had potentially been contaminated, proving the current conservative, step-bystep recall process is fatally inefficient. To minimize risks, the FDA needs to be given more authority to expedite the identification and removal of infected goods from store shelves. Personally, I would not mind the FDA being granted the ability to issue food recalls on its own, though I suspect most CEOs do not share my view. Such an act would reduce the lag between identifying a problem and taking steps to fix it, as the need for time for the company to weigh safety and profits while we consume tainted food would be eliminated. This is not a matter of the government meddling with quality control — this is life and death, and the government has a responsibility to protect its people, whether from natural disaster, war or just a handful of nuts.

Israel defense on false claims

Your opinions are not fact. Before the spring break holiday, I submitted an article concerning controversy of Israel Apartheid Week (IPW), stating that it, the act itself and not any one group, promotes anti-Semitism on college campuses. The responses I received were in light, outlandish and absurd, with people enforcing their opinions as tangible fact. In particular, three contributors, Gray, Riles and Perry, presented multiple statements that were false and unsupported; moreover, their commitments defaced my stance for Israel, twisting my statements into notions towards hating Palestine and adorning me with the title of conservative fanatic. I appreciate the recognition, but let’s look at their inconsistencies. Anti-Semitism: It is the discrimination against or prejudice toward “Jews.â€? Many people believe that since Semites include Akkadians, Canaanites, Phoenicians, Hebrews, Arabs and Ethiopians that being antiSemitic assumes a person is prejudiced against these people. Anti-Semitism is hostility towards Jews only, and it was coined in 1879 in Germany. For example, Nazi Adolf Hitler, supreme FĂźhrer of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party of Germany, passionately desired to end the Jewish race. Riles misuses anti-Semitic when he states “IPW is not antiSemitic for the simple reason that Muslims and Jews are both Semites.â€? Even if IPW was not against the Jews, Riles’ reasoning of anti-Semitism is wrong and should be corrected. Riles also states that I think all Palestinians and Palestinian supporters are anti-Semitic. In addition, Perry claims I think, “any move against Israel is an act of anti-Semitism.â€? I stated, “IAW promotes anti-Semitismâ€? and never gave its responsibility to the Palestinians. I stated that Palestinians enjoy Israel’s true democracy. Moreover, through CAMERA — Committee for Accuracy in the Middle East Reporting in America, I brought Khaled Abu Toameh, a Palestinian Arab journalist, to the University, where he discussed his positive relationships and support for Israel. Clearly, I do not believe that all Palestinians are antiSemitic. However, recent examples of actions by pro-Palestinian groups have made me realize that many of its supporters care more about attacking the state of Israel then supporting the Palestinian people. During IPW, Hezbollah supporter Norman Finkelstein spoke at Emory University calling Israel a “vandal state,â€? an “insane state,â€? a “lunatic stateâ€? and a “terrorist state.â€? He also referred to the Jewish state as a “satanic stateâ€? from “the boils of hellâ€? which “is committing a holocaust in Gaza.â€? This is outrageous!

Apart from referencing Israel as satanic, Finkelstein’s use of holocaust in describing Gaza is appalling. Who uses the massive, murderous genocide of six million Jews by the hands of Nazi Germany to gain support against Israel? These “pro-Palestinian� supporters are not just limiting their attacks towards the Jews. They are acting out against any pro-Israel supporters, even other Palestinians. Khaled Abu Toameh, as mentioned earlier, is an Israeli, Palestinian and Arab journalist who faces Palestinian hatred. While visiting multiple universities this semester, Khaled reports of “pro-Palestinians� condemning him to the status of an “idiot,� and he was even “greeted� with swastikas that were painted over

by another such party. The West Bank and Gaza were never the territory of a High Contracting Party; the occupation after 1948 by Jordan and Egypt was illegal and neither country had lawful or recognized sovereignty. Furthermore, even if the Geneva Convention would apply, it would not outlaw Israeli settlements, since the relevant Article 49 was intended to outlaw the Nazi practice of forcibly transporting populations into or out of occupied territories to death and work campus, and cannot be applied to Israel because Israelis were not forcibly transferred. After Israel gained control of the territories in 1967, Jews moved into the territories because of their own decision because of the historical and religious connection they felt. Perry also states that only Arabs that “shed their previous national identity and become Israeli citizensâ€? are granted any rights of Israel’s democracy. No one is telling them to shed their identity. Perry also misrepresents a Gaza attack in stating, “one thousand ten Palestinians were killed — among them 315 children and 95 women.â€? He leaves out the fact that a large majority of the people eliminated was terrorists and that Israel is attacking because they are trying to defend and protect its country and citizens. Israel’s actions of protecting its citizens at all costs are also supported by the United States. During President Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, he visited Sderot in Israel and made a statement about the Qassam rocket shootings, “If somebody was sending rockets into my house where my two daughters sleep at night, I would do everything to stop that, and would expect Israel to do the same thing.â€? Gray makes a comment that “Palestinians ‌ have no rights and live daily under the heel of occupation.â€? What occupation is he talking about? The land where Palestinians majorly live is mostly run by Hamas. Ask Hamas why the Palestinians have no rights! After much deliberation over the responses from Perry, Riles and Gray, I have concluded that they continuously disregard other warring factions’ interactions in Israel, such as Hamas, and place responsibility of any warring destruction and effects on Israel’s shoulders. I urge them to stop presenting their opinions as fact, do some research and stop misleading people into thinking that Israel is the bad guy. Israel’s main goal is to spread peace throughout its country.

posters promoting his talk. He believes that anti-Israel campaigns in the U.S. are more dangerous than those in Israel, stating, “What is happening on the U.S. campuses is not about supporting the Palestinians as much as it is about promoting hatred for the Jewish state. It is not really about ending the ‘occupation’ as much as it is about ending the existence of Israel.â€? The truth is that while ownership of the land and the legality of Jewish settlements are sometimes disputed, there is no international law that prohibits Israel from building settlements. Those who maintain that the settlements are illegal rely on Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War, August 12, 1949, which states: “Individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory to the territory of the occupying power or to that of any other country‌ are prohibited ‌â€? and â€œâ€Ś The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.â€?

Dear Dave, I began your Thursday article in The Crimson White about dogs with a smirk and by the end I was fighting to control the laughter. You rant about unattractive and socially awkward people with no game using a crutch (dogs) to get easy sex. You also say you disagree with using said crutch as an accessory. That being said, I really think you pull off the crokies look in your picture. On some people

they might look pretentious. The first thing that came to mind while reading your weekly tangent was the scene from “Con Air� where Steve Buscemi leans over to Nicolas Cage and says, “Define irony.� I love the fact that this article was written by the most vocal supporter and defender of fraternity life on campus. I have a challenge for you. Reread your article, but replace frat with every mention of puppy or

dog. See if it doesn’t hit a little too close to home. How quickly a guy from Philly, like yourself, bought in to the greek system speaks volumes about your social life before college. So Dave, if you’re worried about what you’re going to do for social interaction after college, here’s some advice: get a dog.

The year of the Oriole As I was watching the Orioles and Yankees game Monday, I happened to see a commercial that featured fans, no matter what team they called their own, saying that it was their year. It got me thinking: Why exactly am I an Orioles fan? Better yet ‌ why is anyone a fan of a team other than the Yankees or the Red Sox? I’ll even throw the Rays in there, seeming how once you win a World Series everyone’s a fan. I really couldn’t come up with a reason that didn’t make me ask myself just what the hell I was thinking. Here’s what I was able to brainstorm:

Fashion Honestly, it feels nice to know that you’re probably one of the select few who at that very moment is wearing your team’s colors (you know what I’m talking about, Pirates fans). Plus, I think orange and black look good together. I can’t complain about the clearance deals on O’s jerseys either

Tickets Hey, I know they’re always going to be available. I think the last time Camden Yards actually sold out was at its grand opening in ’92. Last time I went, the scalper actually paid me money to take the ticket. In case anyone wants to go to a game this year and witness the greatness that is the Orioles, you can get a free ticket for your birthday; a part of their generous attempt to help out the economy. I hope the foul pole sitting in the seat directly in front of you isn’t too hard to see over.

Psychological advantages By now, I’ve learned to convince myself that anything


waling down the street and giving that nod to the other guy wearing that orange and black cap. We share a unique bond that doesn’t even require us to speak to each other. We just know.


I love to watch games by myself. It gives me that all important time to reflect. I can study the game in depth and realize just how bad we are.

Reminiscing We always know that “next year is our year.� Pirates’ fans have been saying that for 10 years, and they still haven’t broken 500. We take pride in mediocrity. Maybe it’s the idea of individuality that is so luring. It could be the fact that the Orioles’ two televised games a year don’t warrant me paying for cable. is all right. After convincing myself that the Orioles would have a winning record each year, it’s like second nature. After studying for an exam for five minutes, I have no problem believing that I’m ready for it.

Thick skin Years of criticism from Yankees and Red Sox fans have aided me in developing the skill of refracting boorish insults quite easily. I’m used to it. To those fans, I respond: “At least I can count my team’s pay roll amount on two hands!�

Camaraderie There’s


When it gets really bad, as it does quite often with the Orioles, I just try to picture Cal Ripken out there playing third. It’s surprisingly not that difficult. I just have to focus really hard. The antidepressants they put me on after he retired don’t hurt either. I swear everything’s true, except the anti-depressants. I don’t exactly know what’s so appealing about any of that, though. For some weird and crazy reason, the fans put up with it. We always know that “next year is our year.â€? Pirates’ fans have been saying that for 10 years, and they still haven’t broken 500. We take pride in mediocrity. Maybe it’s the idea of individuality that is so luring. It could be the fact that the Orioles’ two televised games a year don’t warrant me paying for cable. Or maybe we just like the feeling we get from knowing that it’s going to be the same every year, but there’s always that chance we could win. The famous Italian-American screenwriter Mario Puzo once wrote: “A loser doesn’t know what he’ll do if he loses, but talks about what he’ll do if he wins‌ .â€?

If students are going home for the summer, they should think about how they can save money in their apartment back at school. “[Students] should set the thermostat up higher, but they should not set it to 100,” Fulmer said. “Set it on 85, or you can really cut the air conditioning off if you move out temporarily.” Jan Brakefield an assistant professor in consumer sciences, also has advice for helping students save. “First thing I would recommend is learn from past mistakes,” she said. “Take a look from last summer and financial decisions you made that later you said ‘Why did I do that?’ ‘Why did I spend that much?’ Take a look back and

freshmen will get a sense of an academic community from the beginning of their college experience. “Alabama is often mistaken to be just a football and party school,” Foley said. “In reality, there is an incredible number of excellent students and faculty on this campus.

begin your plans through the rear-view mirror.” Brakefield said she came up with simple solutions that can help a college student who spends too much or has problems with saving money. The first idea is the envelope system, where you make one envelope for every goal. As you earn money, you put money in those envelopes, and put them in a secret place so they stay untouched. “It is physical evidence, so when you go shop there is no hidden cash, she said. “It’s a visible, tangible item to remind you that you are out of money, but with that comes great stewardship in keeping cash around; making sure that you have a safe deposit box.” The second idea is the 24-hour rule. Before you decide to spend anything that has a value of $50 or more, think about it for at least 24 hours before you make a decision. “My guess is that half the time you won’t do it,” she said. “If you allowed yourself to spontaneously answer yes,

most of those things you would probably do just for a desire of wanting to instead of really giving it a thought.” The last idea that Brakefield said she had was for budgetminded students have a buddy for support. “It’s better to have a partner who can help you stay on track,” she said. “It’s a good thing to do if you fear that you have a spending problem. It wouldn’t hurt to share this with somebody and have them go with you to help you make decisions.” An idea that both Fulmer and Brakefield said they agree on is that all students should set a budget for the summer starting now in order to save money for the fall. “Set an appropriate goal for the salary, and save enough money to cover books or save enough money to have $50 of spending money per week,” Fulmer said. “The savings money goes in savings first, and the rest in checking.” Brakefield said she thought the best policy is for students

to be completely honest with themselves. “Look at every week in the summer and understand what your contribution is going to be,” she said. “If you see that is not right, you have time to wiggle out of the commitments by simply saying that you have put a pencil to it and that you don’t have the income that you thought and it’s not a wise thing. Anything that is a goal, there is always going to be a small cost; be brutally honest with yourself.” Both Brakefield and Fulmer made it clear that students should start budgeting and thinking about situations that could cost them quite a bit in the future, such as costly trips. “Try every morning when you get up to try and think about the big picture first,” Brakefield said. “Your goal is to get a fabulous education and find a career to feel productive and an important part of society wherever you are. Think about the big goals and let everything else fall in place.”

Students will register for the program at Bama Bound. The small groups will meet once every two weeks in a casual setting. There will also be enough groups to accommodate every student’s schedule, Morgan said. On several occasions throughout the semester, the entire program will get together for a service day or pizza party. The small groups will consist of two currently enrolled Honors College students and about 10 freshmen. During each meeting, the two older students will lead a guided conversation about everything from suggestions about what

courses to take to campus organizations to join and how to make friends, Morgan said. The Honors College currently does not offer any formal advising for students who are trying to figure out Honors College requirements, University Honors class options, and departmental honors classes, Foley said. Peer Mentors will be given this information by Honors College professors and will be responsible to pass on information to the freshmen and eliminate any confusion. Incoming freshmen have one commonality, Morgan said. They are all excited about

coming to the University but have a certain fear of starting college life. Applications to be a mentor in the program were sent out in an Honors College email and are due by April 15, Foley said. Mentors must be in the University Honors Program, International Honors Program or Computer-Based Honors Program. “We want a variety of students who are engaged on campus and in their classes,” Foley said. “It will be a great opportunity for the mentors as well, who can learn more about the Honors College and get an hour of UH credit.”

the Corolla considerably less, Wright said. “The hardcover edition costs are probably about three to three-and-a-half times more than the soft cover, so the cost is significantly less,” he said. No decisions regarding funding were made. “The funding of the book was not a part of this decision because there is no other funding at this point other

than what we have right now,” Wright said. Wright said additional funding may not be needed with the new format. Laura Pitts, current editor of the Corolla, was happy to see the decision reached. “I think [the Board’s decision] is a very good thing. I think the yearbook is something we need on campus. It gives the history of the

entire year. I think the Media Planning Board was very smart and in tune with what the University needs,” she said. The soft cover format won’t change much about the yearbook, Pitts said. “From the soft cover books I’ve seen, the page counts are roughly the same, [but] production will definitely be cheaper,” she said.

9. For ab work, use the mats off to the side. “One guy laid down in the middle of the weight room and started doing sit ups [as if I said] ‘Drop and give me twenty!’” Egan said. “Obviously, that’s a hazard, because people are walking by carrying heavy things.”

For healthy and safe cardio lifting, don’t jerk the weight or sway back and forth. Make sure you keep your knees soft, lift slowly, and return back to the starting position slowly. Eat something before you work out. Many people run or lift on an empty stomach because your body goes straight to fat reserves for energy. However, Nix said, this hurts your ability to have a good workout in the long run. “You’re going to burn off glycogens and your carbohydrate source before you get into your fat source, and sometimes people get lightheaded because your blood sugar levels drop,” she said. “So you end up not going as fast, long or hard as you would if you had eaten carbs and proteins 30 minutes to an hour before, because you’ll run out of fuel.” To lose weight through cardio, frequently change it up. “Do the bikes one day, then the treadmill the next, then play a sport,” Nix said. “The best cardio workout is swimming, because you’re using every muscle in your body.” To build muscle, use higher weight and lower reps and try to limit rest to less than 30 seconds. For toning, use a lighter weight with more reps, and limit rest to a minute. Pick something that you enjoy doing. “Exercise should never feel like it’s a chore,” Nix said. “Experiment with classes and machines until you find something you truly love, and then it won’t feel like exercise — it will just feel like a hobby.”

Rock Doc at 8 o’clock By Tyler Deierhoi Lifestyles Reporter The Bama Theatre will be screening the first installment of its new Rock Doc series tonight and Saturday night. The series will be showing documentaries about music festivals from the 60s and 70s, starting with Donn Alan Pennebaker’s award -winning “Monterey Pop.” The film covers the 1967 Monterey International Pop Music Festival, which predated Woodstock by two years. The screening will begin at 8 tonight and Saturday night, with a $5 general admission. The Rock Doc series was the expansion of an idea of theatre manager David Allgood. Allgood had been planning on showing different music documentaries, but a theatergoer and friend of Allgood’s named Pat Patten suggested turning it into a series. Allgood said one of the main reasons “Monterey Pop” was chosen was its historical importance to rock ‘n’ roll festivals. “Up until that time there had been no actual rock ‘n’ roll festival,” said Allgood. “This was one of the first festivals that was strictly popular music.” Held in Monterey, Calif., the three-day event brought together music groups like The Mamas & the Papas and The Who and was attended by about 200,000 people. The event had the first major American performances by Jimi Hendrix and The Who. It also had the first major performances of Janis Joplin and Otis Redding. Monterey Pop is also notable for taking place in the middle of the Summer of Love. The Summer of Love took place in San Francisco, Calif. during the summer months of 1967 and played a large part in publicizing the hippie counterculture in the United States. Allgood said he considers the 1968 movie to be one of the catalysts for the independent movement among younger Americans. “It was part of the beginning of the youth culture in America,” he said. “It made

It was young people finding their own way with their own culture.” He said he also believes the movie offered people a chance to see musicians they would never have seen before. There will be a screening of the original documentary on both nights as well as an intermission, but each will present different content from the DVD after the movie. Tonight, the theatre will show extra footage of Jimi Hendrix, Otis Redding, Buffalo Springfield and others. On Saturday, they will play an outtakes reel alongside the film. Allgood plans to continue the series if it is successful and hopes it will become a yearly event. He said the events would focus mostly on rock and roll documentaries, though it will likely also involve other music documentaries. He said part of the series would include the 40-year anniversary of Woodstock. The event, which would be three days in October, would feature the award-winning documentary about the famed festival. Other possible films for the series include “Gimme Shelter,” about the Rolling Stones’ disastrous concert at the Altamont Speedway and “Dont Look Back,” a film following Bob Dylan’s 1965 tour of England. Monterey Pop is being sponsored by Chuck’s Fish, which is offering a special deal to customers. Those who eat at Chuck’s Fish on April 10 and 11 will receive a free ticket to the screening. Those who go to the screening will receive $5 off their next visit to Chuck’s Fish when they present their ticket stub. Left: Monterey Pop will be showing at the Bama Theater on April 10 and 11.

NEW YORK | Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, one of the sassy ladies of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New York,” said she was “blindsided” when her husband of 16 years ended their marriage. Last week, she confirmed her separation from Count Alexandre de Lesseps, who appeared intermittently on “Real Housewives.” “I try to stand up tall and walk out the door every day and take it day by day,” the countess, who is keeping her title, said Thursday. “Because, after 16 years of being married, it’s like something has died. And I’m going through a grieving process.” But at the same time, she said, “I’m trying to be positive and look at this as a turning point for me.” The former model, 43, confirmed a report that the breakup came after she received an e-mail message from the count, who spends much time overseas. She says, “I just think some people aren’t good at confrontation.” The count, a Frenchman whose ancestor presented the Statue of Liberty to the United States, reportedly was having a relationship with another woman. “I don’t really want to know right now,” de Lesseps said. “I just want to maintain our friendship so that I can get what I need to move forward and do it in the best way for

the children.” The countess and the count have a 14-year-old daughter, Victoria, and a 12-year-old son, Noel. They share homes on Long Island and in Manhattan. Distance caused the couple to grow apart, she said. “It’s very difficult to live separate,” she said. “He travels an awful lot and I was alone a lot. ... So I would say that that was one of the big factors for us.” Her book, “Class With the Countess,” arrives April 16. It contains advice on etiquette, social grace and background on her past, especially her life in Italy. In a chapter on how to woo the opposite sex, she discusses her whirlwind romance with the thrice-divorced count after connecting at a dinner party in Gstaad, Switzerland. She said it was love at first sight. “When I wrote the book, I wrote it from a different place,” she said. “I was secure in my marriage and I had no idea this was going to happen to me. So it’s been a really difficult time for me — and the information is there and it’s what I live by.” In the book, de Lesseps gives advice for handling a breakup, saying she’s “a big believer that a better man is just around the corner.” Does she still believe that? “You won’t find better than my husband,” she said. “He is a great man. I know he has his faults, as we all do. ... Another love, hopefully, [is] waiting for me around the corner.”

No record, but Campbell opens with 65 By Doug Ferguson The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Chad Campbell ran off five straight birdies, the best start ever in the Masters. Jim Furyk charged up the crowd with four straight birdies late in his round. Even that notoriously slow starter, Tiger Woods, got in on the action. Anyone worried that Augusta National had lost its excitement only had to listen to the sweetest of sounds Thursday. The roars returned to the Masters. Campbell led an assault on the record book with nine birdies in 15 holes before two late mistakes made him settle for a 7-under 65 and a one-shot lead over Furyk and Hunter Mahan. “It is nice to hear some noises again,” Sandy Lyle said. Augusta National cooked up the perfect formula for record scoring — warm sunshine and only a gentle breeze, along with inviting hole locations and greens that were soft and smooth. The cheers came from all corners for 11 hours of golf that produced six eagles and 354 birdies. There were 19 rounds in the 60s, the most ever for the first round, and only four fewer than the entire tournament last year. It was so easy that Woods nearly broke 70 in the opening round for the first time in his career. Playing in his first major since winning the U.S. Open last summer, Woods ran off three straight birdies late in the afternoon and was poised to climb even farther up the leaderboard until he missed birdie putts of 8 feet and 4

feet, then hit a shot over the 18th green that led to a bogey and a 2-under 70. Even so, it was his first time to break par in the first round of the Masters since 2002, one of four years he’s won a green jacket. “They must have felt sorry for us,” Campbell said. Masters chairman Billy Payne had said this year would be an important test to show that supersizing the golf course — it has been stretched more than 500 yards this decade — would not take the thrills out of the Masters. The weather was ideal, yes, but the club did its part, too, AP with greens softer than they Chad Campbell shoots out of a bunker at 18 in first round action have been all week and hole at the Masters. Campbell birdied the first five holes of the day locations that allowed players and finished with a 7-under 65.

to attack the pins. The result was 38 rounds under par, another Masters record for the first round. Greg Norman played for the first time since 2002, and the 54-year-old Shark was shocked by all the changes. Even more shocking was that he shot a 70 and was mildly disappointed. “Really could have shot a nice, mid-60s score today,” Norman said. “I’m not complaining.” The average score was 72.25, nearly two shots easier than a

year ago and the lowest since it was 72.06 in 1992. “This day was reminiscent of how it used to be,” Woods said. “You could go out there on that back nine and make some birdies, and if you caught some good gusts, you could shoot some pretty good numbers.” Woods figured that out even before he got to the back nine. If the cheers weren’t enough, all he had to do was look at the white leaderboards that were filled with red numbers.

hit, Wells has raved about his instinct and knack for the

game. When recruiting him, it was his winning mentality that caught Wellsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; eye as well as his play on the field. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a real good mentality, a tough kid,â&#x20AC;? Wells said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was the quarterback of his high school team, and they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t every any good until he was there, and [theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re] not any good after he left. He just has that x factor, whatever that is.â&#x20AC;? Dugas, a native of Lafayette, La., had a lot of pressure from friends and family to play at in-state LSU, but ultimately, he felt Alabama was the right fit because he could come in and play right away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of [my] family is LSU fans, but what it came down to is this was the right place for me, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I chose here,â&#x20AC;? Dugas said. This weekend, the Louisiana

native gets a chance to face the team he grew up cheering for in what may be the biggest series of the year to this point for the Tide. With a sweep of Tennessee last weekend, Alabama is right back in the race for the SEC West but the upcoming series with the Tigers may determine their fate. As big as the series is for the Tide, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even bigger for Dugas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got probably 15 family members coming up here, so it will be a fun weekend,â&#x20AC;? Dugas said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m actually pretty excited about it. I know a lot of guys on their team, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to playing against them.â&#x20AC;? Alabama will kick off the LSU series tonight at 6:35 at home with Austin Hyatt on the mound.

Last year, it was freshmen Josh Rutledge and Ross Wilson who came in and to ignite Alabama’s offense, leading the Crimson Tide to the NCAA Tournament. Rutledge recorded a 28-game hitting streak his freshman year, the third longest in school history, and Wilson tied a freshman record by hitting 15 home runs in his first year. This season, another freshman has been at the top of the order as the catalyst for the Tide. Left fielder Taylor Dugas,

who has hit lead-off all year, leads the team with a .439 batting average. “He’s just one of those rare guys,” head coach Jim Wells said. “We’ve been blessed to have two guys last year in Rutledge and Wilson, and now Dugas.” Dugas is chasing Rutledge’s hitting streak from last year. Tuesday, the freshman extended his streak to 21 games when he went 2-for-4 in Alabama’s 224 win over Troy. “The key to the hitting streak is putting together good at-bats every time you get up there,” Dugas said. “Another thing

that has been helping me out is that everybody has been hitting the ball well. Hitting is contagious.” Dugas understands the need to get on base is his role as the lead-off hitter. He also knows that when he gets on, there’s a good chance the rest of lineup will bring him around to score. “We’ve got a lot of power guys, and they don’t leave me out on the bases too often, Dugas said. “They always get me in, so it’s fun to get on for those guys.” Aside from his ability to
