The Publisher Vance Leavy As BI Athens editor, Ryan Scates, says in his note to my right, things are definitely slowing down here in the Classic City as the 2010-2011 UGA school year came to an end last week. But the ending couldn’t have been any sweeter with the unbelievable win by Russell Henley in the Stadion Athens Classic at Uga. Wow, what a spectacular accomplishment. As is normally the case, our sports guru, Jeff Dantzler hit the nail on the head (on page 4) when saying Henley’s amateur accolades will go down as one of the most impressive in the last several years. I will even take it a little further and say it has to be one of the most impressive in the modern era of amateur golf. However what I like best about Henley is the fact that you would never know he’s one of the best and brightest golfers in the world. He’s humble and shows respect to everyone. Like our cover says, he’s one cool customer. Please enjoy Travis Ragsdale’s story and Q&A on Henley opposite of this page. I love the fact that he will miss the awesome food in Athens and the fellowship of his teammates. While most of us that graduated from UGA didn’t play sports, I would bet the majority would agree that the food (and perhaps a few libations) and friends are what made the time in Athens so special. For Henley, he has a few more opportunities to make history with his teammates, as the NCAAs will be held over the next few weeks. Here’s hoping for a National Title for him and his boys. Before I shift completely away from golf, I must give kudos to everyone involved in putting on the Stadion Classic. I hope all Athenians appreciate such a quality event being held here every May. And perhaps consider supporting the tournament next year, either monetarily or as a volunteer. While Russell’s feat earned him our cover shot, Ron Courson, UGA’s assistant athletic director for sport medicine and the UGA sports medicine staff did something even more amazing last week saving the life of Mississippi State’s director of track and field who collapsed with cardiac arrest during the first day of the SECs Championships at the Spec Towns track. Ironically, Courson was scheduled to give a speech on sudden cardiac arrest a couple days later in Charlotte. The main aspects of the speech were to include that the key to an emergency plan is preparation. Thankfully Courson and his team had planned and rehearsed many times over, and performed brilliantly when the unfortunate situation arose. We are so thankful to have such talented folks in our athletic department. Switching gears one last time, an issue of BI Athens isn’t complete without plenty of photos and a few features to encourage everyone to get out and have some fun in the community. Intern Chelsea Swanhart gives us 10 things to do over the Maymester on page 6. All of them sound like a blast to me. And for the foodies, Cheri’s visit with David Allen on our back page certainly should provide some motivation to all the back yard grillers out there. And Daniel Peiken has delivered again on page 10 for the folks looking for the best music in town over the next few issues. And he has promised me something special in our next issue in preparation for AthFest that will be held June 22-26. Enjoy this issue and get out in Athens and have some fun, particularly while the weather is still conducive for it. Cheers! Publishers:

The EDITOR Ryan Scates Similar to someone shutting off a water faucet, the steady stream of students in and out of Athens has trickled down to a slow drip as another semester is put in the books at UGA. Being out and about in downtown Athens the night after graduation is always a fun time. As if oncue, Athens locals emerge from all corners of town and reclaim their territory from those pesky undergrads who are back in Atlanta or Lawrenceville or who-knows-where until mid-August. In a 72hour timeframe, the scene on Broad Street changes from one filled with frantic anxiety about exams, to one with proud moments under the arch, and then finally to a slow-paced, relaxed gait where everyone’s biggest goal seems to be just outlasting the heat. And while there is certainly nothing wrong with slowing down your pace while waiting for the summer months to pass, there are some pretty big events on tap in the next few weeks that you would be silly to let pass by. First off, the Diamond Dawgs, who claim the nation’s toughest schedule, are battling for position to play into the NCAA baseball tournament. The biggest hurdle for the Dawgs’ postseason hopes will be simply meeting the bare minimum requirement for eligibility: a winning record. As of press time the baseball team sits at a .500 record with crucial contests against Kennesaw State and Vanderbilt upcoming before the team heads to Hoover, Alabama for the SEC Tournament. Between competing in a SEC eastern division that has had three different teams ranked #1 in the nation over the course of the season (Vanderbilt, Florida and South Carolina), and battling with teammate Johnathan Taylor as he fights back from a spinal injury, this Diamond Dawg squad deserves your support as they head into the home stretch. Further, both the men’s and women’s tennis squads held serve through the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament in Athens, and now are poised to chase respective NCAA Titles at the Championship tournament in Palo Alto. Combined with the fact that the Softball team will be hosting FSU, Ga. State and UAB in an NCAA Regional Tournament at Jack Turner Stadium beginning Friday, May 20th, there is still plenty to cheer for as many spring sports hit championship season! On the cultural side of things, I have to recommend that you make an effort to head over to the Melting Point to catch Dawes on Thursday, May 19th. This is a band that is on track to join the likes of Band of Horses and Kings of Leon on the list of bands you can say that you saw in Athens just before they exploded onto the national scene. Trust me, it will be worth your time. Well what do you know, I am running short on space and I feel like I have just scratched the tip of the iceberg regarding events not to miss during what feels like a lazy summer in Athens. I hope to see you out cheering on the Dawgs or jamming to some crunchy tunes around town soon! C Circulation:

Way to go Russell ... 2011 Stadion Classic champion By Travis Ragsdale Pros, amateurs, average joe weekend golfers, it doesn’t really matter to Russell Henley; he’ll beat you no matter what. Which is exactly what he did at the Stadion Classic in Athens. The UGA golfer, who graduated just last week, became the second amateur golfer to ever win a Nationwide tour event since it’s inception in 1990. Henley shot a 3under 68 in the final round of the tournament to beat 33-year old Troy Kelly by two strokes. With the win, Henley would receive an automatic exemption for the rest of this year on the Nationwide tour. Good thing for the golfers on the tour that Henley is going to pass on the invite. “I’m going to keep my amateur status through the summer and hopefully turn pro in the fall,” said Henley. Henley dominated the field Thursday, Friday and Saturday going into Sunday with a share of the lead at 9-under. However, when Henley walked up to the 18th tee on Sunday with a one shot lead and pulled his drive to the left, he’ll admit he started to feel the pressure just a bit. “There’s a couple magnolia trees over there on the left and I was just hoping I wasn’t going to be right under one of those,” said Henley, “I knew if I wasn’t right under one of those I could somehow hit it on the green or at least close to it.” Henley was able to recover from the pulled tee shot and after Kelly missed his birdie attempt, Henley only had a two-foot tap in before he was able to enjoy the roars of the crowd on the 18th green.

With this win, Russell Henley has cemented for himself a future in the ranks of professional golf, but Athens and UGA will always be in his memory. Here are a few questions for one cool customer ... What was your favorite part about the Stadion Classic? Probably coming up on 17 everyday with all the Georgia fans up there cheering for me. Just being a Georgia Bulldog at that tournament and having everybody on your side. There’s no better feeling than that. What’s your favorite hole on the UGA course? I’d have to say number 12 because there’s so much risk-reward back there. A lot can happen, you can make a three or you could make a seven. You just have to man-up and hit a shot on that one. What are you going to miss most about UGA and Athens? I’m really going to miss all the great places to eat in Athens. That’s one of the coolest things about Athens. But the main thing I’m going to miss is being around ten guys everyday that like to do the exact same thing I like to do. I don’t think you can get that when you turn pro. I’m going to miss the team. What’s your best memory as a UGA golfer? So far, it’s been winning the SEC championships. Hopefully I can have a better one in the next couple weeks with the NCAAs coming up. photo by

Henley and Diamond Dawgs had a grand Sunday indeed

Jeff Dantzler

When Nationwide Tour’s Athens event moved from Jennings Mill Country Club to the beautiful and treacherous UGA Golf Course, with the University as the host, one of the perks was that a pair of Bulldog players would earn berths in the tournament. This is huge for the powerhouse Bulldog program, which under the watch of Chris Haack, has captured two national championships, seven Southeastern Conference crowns, twice finished as the No. 1 ranked team in the country, been the national runner-up and advanced to the Final Four of the NCAAs first ever match-play format. On this incredible run of success, the Bulldogs have featured a slew of star performers, several of whom, including Bubba Watson, Ryuji Imada and Chris Kirk are excelling on the PGA Tour. Haack’s current edition is littered with talent, including this season’s two qualifiers for the Stadion Athens Classic at UGA, Harris English and Russell Henley. Well these two young men, against a deep and talented field did something very impressive. English wound up in the tournament’s top 20, finishing four under par. And Henley, well he did something quite historic. He won the thing. Becoming just the second amateur to win a Nationwide Tour event, Henley followed up his opening round score of oneover 72, with a pair of blistering 66s. In the lead and in the final group, Henley shook off a bogey on Sunday’s first hole to post a 68 and cruise to a two-shot victory. On the heels of last season’s memorable standout perform-

ance at immaculate Pebble Beach at the United States Open, Henley – playing the final round with this year’s Masters Champion Charl Schwartzel – was the low amateur and finished in a tie for 16th. Chris Brame, my 960 The Ref afternoon talk show co-host, did some impressive research and found that only four players in the Stadion Classic have ever finished higher in a professional major championship, and that includes 49-year old Steve Pate, prepping for the Champion’s tour, who has a top ten in the Masters, US Open, British Open and PGA – including a third place showing at Augusta. Figure that in with Henley’s numerous rounds at the Bulldogs home course, and it really shouldn’t come as such a surprise that he contended, right? But he’s an amateur, and just finished finals. Graduation was approaching, and the NCAA Championships. These are seasoned pros, many of whom have been on the PGA tour, and many more of whom are on their way to golf’s biggest stage. That’s a lot of pressure, with circumstances making the chance of success, even with Henley’s inherit home-course advantage, highly unlikely. Again, it had happened only once before. In the last quarter-century, it happened only twice on the PGA Tour, amateurs winning an event. Scott Verplank did it. So did Phil Mickleson. As Henley was marching towards victory, I was following the scoring on my computer while calling Georgia’s Sunday baseball game at Auburn. The Bulldogs had fallen behind 8-0 in the first inning. I was pulling hard for Russell, with various friends on the course keeping me up to date with the nuances of his final round

via text. It wasn’t looking good for the Dogs. But it was looking good for Russell. He won it. I quickly texted congratulations to coach Haack and told him to please pass those well wishes along to Henley. Well next thing you know, the Dogs did a little something special in the loveliest village on the plains. Auburn walked five in the ninth, and hit another. Chase Davidson blasted a three run homer and Carson Schilling got a hit. Then with two out and the bases loaded, star shortstop Kyle Farmer blasted a gargantuan two-out grand slam home run over Auburn’s left field green monster. It capped a nine-run ninth. Georgia led 14-11, and Tyler Maloof closed out the Tiger ninth, the game ending on a 6-3 double play turned by Framer. In our postgame show, I informed a jubilant Bulldog coach David Perno that Henley had won the Stadion Classic at UGA. Perno, himself a standout golfer – though not quite as good as his brother Donn, head pro extraordinaire at spectacular Peachtree in Atlanta – was elated with the day, and said he was not surprised, having played with Henley at UGA earlier in the year. It was a great day for Georgia, most notably of course for Henley, who is putting together what will go down as one of the most impressive amateur resumes for an American golfer over the past several years. Next on his agenda: hoping to help lead the Bulldogs to a run at the national championship.

Top 10 Things to do During Maymester School’s out for the summer. No more colossal books to read, 8 a.m. wake-up calls or pulling allnighters for three glorious months; for most students that is. The Maymester, one of the most dreaded words at UGA, will begin on May 17, but that doesn’t mean these students’ summer fun has completely gone out the Orbit bus window. There are plenty of exciting things to do during the summer in Athens, and below is a guide to help everyone, even Maymester students, have a little fun. 1. Big Dogs on the River: Enjoy the magnificence of the Middle Oconee River while kayaking down a 3.5 mile-long rivertrail with a group of friends. An air-conditioned shuttle transports kayakers upstream where individuals can then go at their own pace on Big Dogs kayaks and end up back at their own vehicle in the end. 2. Athens Food Tours: Explore Athens’ local food on three-hour walking tours to 6-8 local restaurants and shops. The tours include food, drink, entertainment and history that make for an unforgettable experience. The walking pace is slow and rests at each eatery make the tours suitable for all ages and levels of fitness.

Bishop Park Saturdays: 8 a.m. - Noon Little Kings Tuesdays: 4 p.m. - 7 p.m.

3. Canopy Studio: Canopy Studio community arts center offers performances and classes in flying dance trapeze, movement education and performance arts. Canopy Studio is also available for rental for parties and offers private lessons for the adventurous. One of our favorite chefs, Peter Dale of The National, is a huge fan of Canopy Studio! 4. State Botanical Garden of Georgia: As one of Athens’ most popular attractions, this 313-acre botanical garden is the perfect place for a cultural, educational and recreational experience. In addition, the Alice Hand Callaway Visitor Center & Conservatory is a beautiful setting for concerts, lectures and art exhibitions.

Canopy Studio

5. Terrapin Beer Co.: Terrapin Brewery is open to the public for tours and tastings every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 5:30 - 7:30. Souvenir glasses for tasting are $10 each and a portion goes to support local charities. There is also live music!

Summer Schedule

6. CinÊ: An art house located right in the heart of Downtown Athens that screens the latest independent and international films, documentaries, festival discoveries and classic movies. CinÊ also features an exhibit gallery by local artists, and the CinÊBar offers a variety of cocktails and snacks. Dinner and a Movie packages are also available with neighboring restaurant, The National. 7. Athens Farmers’ Market: Athens Farmers Market is a non-profit organization of local farmers, craftspeople and volunteers coming together to make local naturally grown food, crafts and works of art available to all. All food available is grown in their soil by their farmers and shopping here is a fantastic way to become part of the Slow Food movement in Athens. 8. The Athens Heritage Tour: This tour of historic Athens is a 90 minute guided tour of Athens that’s begins in the oldest house in Athens. The tour will show the world’s only double barrel canon and the historic downtown district in Athens. Make reservations!

Baseball at Foley Field

9. Classic City Rollergirls: If you are looking for something out of the norm, Athens’ all-female roller derby league is sure to impress. During three periods of hard-hitting roller derby are fun for families and groups of friends. 10. UGA Sports: Don’t forget to support the Bulldawgs even when school is out! Georgia baseball, softball, tennis and track & field all compete into the summer. Show your Georgia pride by attending sporting events and cheering on the Dawgs. May is a great month in Athens and students, tourists and Athens locals alike have a lot to look forward to. Enjoy summer and good luck Maymester students!

Spotlight on Natalie Glenn

When was the last time you laughed so hard you cried?

Natalie Glenn uses her expertise as an alumna from the University of Georgia to help her as Director of Alumni Relations for the Terry College of Business. She graduated in 2002 from the Grady School of Journalism and Mass Communication with a degree in Public Relations. Natalie Glenn is the president of the Junior League of Athens and is the wife of UGA tennis coach, Will Glenn. She has diligently contributed to UGA over the years.

I can’t remember for sure but undoubtedly it was at something Will said or did.

What’s your main goal as president of the Junior League of Athens?

What’s your favorite movie? 7YVIHIS`.SHKPH[VY0SV]L[OLT\ZPJ and cinematography and that period of history.

Natalie and Coach Magill

My main goal has been to create team atmosphere and unite us in our mission to positively impact the community through the effective action of trained volunteers, something that really makes the League unique. The League is blessed with talented and committed volunteers with servants’ hearts and I think that is why we are able to accomplish so many things.


Avett Brothers Who’s your favorite band/artist?

I like a variety of music - the Avett Brothers, Zac Brown Band, Lionel Richie, but I’m really a talk radio junkie.


I have the pleasure of working with our talented alumni near and far. Our regional alumni networks in cities such as New York City, Washington DC, Charlotte, and Jacksonville keep long distance dawgs connected to the college.

In the kitchen with David Allen David Allen is back in Athens growing his dental practice in Hawthorne Park. It was a delight to meet him and his wife April, particularly to get the chance to see him in action in the kitchen and on the Big Green Egg. It’s a blast to hang out with someone who is into the art of food and willing to gab for hours about favorite food regions or where to buy the best ingredients. Travels to Thailand only solidified his love for Asian cuisine but he has a soft spot for the burgeoning food movement in New Orleans too. David Chang’s cookbook ‘Momo Fuko’ is a source of inspiration and direction for how David Allen takes his own southern based cooking style and infuses it with Asian flavors. He says the key to both styles is using the freshest ingredients. I think he likes adding a spicy kick to our good ole south. He does it well as our spring supper was zesty not only in taste but spirit! Visit guide2athens website to see more of the photoshoot including all the recipes and “how to” for this fabulous spring supper of chicken with a blood orange honey habanera sauce, grilled artichoke hearts with a shallot butter sauce, grilled corn with ancho chipotle butter and a red leaf salad with hearts of palm and Parmigiano-Reggiano. Bon appetit- Cheri Leavy

Spring Chicken David likes to get smaller 2-2 1/2 lb. birds from Plow Point Farms. He thinks it is important to use a brine and then a good rub. He likes Fire and Flavor rubs, some from Shiraz or to make his own. To finish this chicken, he made a blood orange honey habanera sauce. He is a big fan of anything with blood oranges and even better if it has a little heat.
