TRANSCRIPT

  • By JACOB DEMMITTTHE RED & BLACK

    Police have launched an all-out search for a man accused of attempting to kidnap a female University student downtown early Wednesday morning.

    The student, 19, told The Red & Black Thursday she was able to escape after elbowing her

    attacker in the stomach.She sustained minor injuries.According to the Athens-

    Clarke County Police report, the botched kidnapping happened at the East Washington Street and North Lumpkin Street intersec-tion at 1:10 a.m. on April 28.

    Jason Avery Harris, 36, identi-fied as the assailant, was detained soon after the incident.

    He was taken in for questioning, but was released shortly after.

    According to ACC Police Lt. David Leedahl, the assailant approached the female student and began choking her.

    The student, who said she was on the phone with her mother at the time, was then forced inside her vehicle.

    Once inside her Jeep, the vic-tim stated the attacker held a key up to her throat and said, If you scream, Ill cut you.

    She was able to escape the vehicle after a struggle.

    I ran, then looked back to

    make sure I wasnt being fol-lowed, the student said. He was sitting in my car.

    An ACC police officer, who the report says was standing less than 50 feet from the incident, witnessed the victim climb out of the Jeep.

    According to the report, she

    Members of the Georgia Students for Public Higher Education gathered on North Campus Thursday morning to oppose the budget cuts facing the University but their cause was nearly silenced by administrators.

    The protesters had planned to let the Chapel bell

    speak for them, but when they arrived at the Chapel around 8 a.m., they found that the bells rope had been removed.

    For them, ringing the bell which h i s t o r i c a l l y

    sounds to signal football game wins, the end of the semester and dire emergen-cies was a symbolic act.

    We think the budget cri-sis is an emergency, said Allie McCullen, an English and womens studies double major from Snellville. McCullen is also one of the founders of the Universitys branch of GSPHE.

    The students planning to ring the Chapel bell armed themselves with handheld bells to make the most of the situation, but the rope returned to its proper place around 11:30 a.m. after the GSPHE came to arrange-ment with the University.

    Technically, theres not supposed to be a demonstra-tion on North Campus, said Tom Jackson, vice president for public affairs at the University. The University

    Jimmy DeRoth does it fast. Art, that is.

    When starting a new collec-tion, DeRoth quickly turns his ideas into tangible pieces with whatever materials necessary.

    For his exit show on May 1, DeRoth will include paintings, sculpture, sound installation and a video.

    I think of everything as sculpture, he said. Even when painting, you have to build the canvas. I try to find the easiest way to express my ideas, and usually its in 3-D.

    DeRoth works rapidly so that

    he can make a piece and move on to his next idea.

    A lot of times, when I have a couple [of] completed pieces, its then that I realize how theyre all related and I can put them together, he said.

    His art is idea-driven; its about the content, not the craftsmanship.

    I dont think art has to be particularly well crafted, DeRoth said. If you can look at it and get the idea, thats good enough.

    Many of his large pieces are made from materials he found. He tries not to make too many elements from scratch.

    One of his pieces consists of

    vinyl dolls he sewed circling a white picket fence.

    A large sewer pipe runs from an old television set, crosses over the fence and deposits faux-feces in the center of the fenced area.

    I dont want it to be too obvious or symbolic, DeRoth said, I just want it to trigger thoughts of why things are the way they are get people to think.

    His collection for the exit show is drawn from personal experiences in Athens and is a critique of American culture in general.

    I want to visually describe political issues, he said.

    reshman dorm rules there are those who took these as serious as the law, and then there were the ones who saw the policies as merely suggestions.In the past, students found some pretty creative ways to work around those pesky suggestions and managed to avoid persecution while doing so.

    Here are some of their confessions.

    Russell HallViolation of Student Housing Community Guide: p. 18-19 AlcoholExtracted from Community Guide: Common source containers (kegs, punch

    bowls, or other containers) will not be allowed in the residence halls.

    Probably one of the most impressive examples of bending the rules dates back to the year 2000.

    Nick Fisher, now graduated, was a freshman living in room 520 of Russell Hall when he and his roommate managed to throw a party in their dorm room, furnishing 37 guests with hunch punch and beer from a full-sized keg, he said.

    This kind of endeavor is not something that can be thrown together last minute it required careful planning on Fishers part.

    Getting away with the sheer volume of guests was easy enough.Our RA was out of town that weekend, Fisher said.But his true claim to fame is getting the keg, which many believe is the crux

    to a good party, both in and out of Russell Hall.We got it in by putting the keg in an old washer machine box that we

    found in a Dumpster at the old BP next to the Blind Pig, Fisher said.So Fisher and his roommate casually carried a massive and no doubt

    suspicious-looking washing machine box through the main entrance of Russell Hall.

    They followed procedure and provided their IDs when asked; however, they got a bit squirrely when questioned about their oversized parcel.

    When they asked us what was in the box, we just kind of scurried through the doorway and into an elevator, Fisher said.

    The party was the following evening, and afterward, the master-minds had to get the now-empty keg out of the residence hall.

    Then after the keg had been depleted, we took a 50-foot repelling rope and lowered it out the fifth floor window, down to the quad, Fisher said.

    From the fifth to the third floor, the operation went pretty smoothly, but a greedy third floor resident nearly pickled the mis-sion when he saw a keg lower past his window and tried to pull it in for himself.

    When we told him it was empty, he obliged and pushed the keg back out the window, Fisher said.

    After the drop was complete, Fisher covered the incriminat-ing item with a blanket.

    climbed out of the passen-ger side door and began running toward the officer, screaming for help.

    Her nose and face [were] bleeding and her shirt was almost ripped off, the report reads. She was trying to run so fast that she kept falling and getting back up.

    Harris, who the arrest-ing officer saw standing next to the vehicle, began walking toward police.

    His story was he was the one who fought off my attacker, the victim said.

    After Harris told the officer he was helping the victim and had seen the assailant run down Washington Street, police told Harris no one was seen

    running away from the scene, according to the report.

    Harris was then trans-ported to the police station for questioning.

    Despite Leedahl saying it was a possibility that the attacker would claim another victim, Harris was released from custody.

    We will investigate to see how we handled that, Leedahl said. We will eval-uate and make changes to the way we handle situa-tions if we find we did some-thing wrong or there was a communication error.

    As of Thursday after-noon, warrants had been issued for Harriss arrest.

    Once we obtained the warrants, we did an all-out search, Leedahl said. Weve handed fliers out in the

    downtown area and have detectives out looking for him. We have notified the University of Georgia Police Department that we are looking for him. They have assisted in the search down-town and on campus.

    Although University Police Chief Jimmy Williamson said officers are actively looking for Harris, as of Thursday afternoon, there was no indication he was on campus.

    Leedahl confirmed police found Harris clothes in bushes, where it appears he had been living.

    According to the report, a witness told police he watched as Harris began to follow a different female near Nowhere Bar.

    According to the report, the witness said when the

    female stopped, Harris stopped. The female then crossed the street, at which point Harris turned around and began walking back toward Nowhere Bar.

    The witness said he then watched as Harris began following the victim.

    The witness then report-edly called 911.

    As police continued to search Thursday, the UGA Alert System was not implemented.

    Im always going to be second-guessed for that, Williamson said. But we didnt find out about it for 14 hours. It is for immedi-ate notification that requires immediate action. I have to ask myself, is there a danger to the majority of the student body? Unfortunately, there will be a number of people who feel we should have done more and some who feel we did just fine.

    The victim said she does not believe police improp-erly handled the situation.

    They did everything they could, she said. The court system is such an intense process. If one thing had gone wrong, he could have gotten off.

    Artist arrestedUniversity student Alex

    Michael Zmijewski, 23, was arrested and charged with criminal trespass after officers found him spray-painting under the train trestle near Hoyt Street.

    According to the report, the arresting offi-cers could hear the sound of a shaking spray paint can and could smell paint.

    As the officer approached, Zmijewski reportedly dropped a spray can and began walk-

    ing away with a backpack.Inside the bag, police

    discovered three cans of spray paint and a note-book with sketches matching the graffiti.

    According to the report, Zmijewski told offi-cers he went there to paint artwork and didnt think it was a big deal.

    CRIME: Police close by as student fleesBy JACOB DEMMITT

    THE RED & BLACK

    After much debate, the Georgia House of Representatives has sided with the University System of Georgia, pass-ing a bill which does not allow the carry of con-cealed weapons on college campuses.

    Senate Bill 308 which originally would have allowed licensed individu-als to carry fire-arms on college campuses has faced stiff opposi-tion from several university presi-dents, including University President Michael Adams.

    The portion of the bill pertaining to universities was reworked before the bills passage Thursday.

    The house committee has changed the language in connection to where it would allow licensed indi-viduals to carry, said author of the bill, Majority Whip Sen. Mitch Seabaugh

    (R-Sharpsburg). It now says if youre licensed and happen to carry on cam-pus property, its a misde-meanor. If youre not licensed its a felony sub-ject to two to 10 years in prison and up to $10,000 fine.

    This new version of the bill, however, would allow licensed indi-viduals to keep firearms in their cars on campus.

    It would also do away with the pro-vision banning them within 1,000 feet of campus, which Seabaugh said was hard to define.

    It was hard to know where school grounds started, better yet 1,000 feet from them, he said.

    University Police Chief Jimmy Williamson said he doesnt approve or dis-prove of these changes.

    Im fine with whatever our legislators deem appropriate for Georgia, he said. Im here to facili-tate what society wants.

    Bill keeps guns away, no carry on campus

    fears demonstrations out-side of free speech zones areas, like the Tate Plaza, designated for rallies and gatherings could prove disruptive to the student bodys education.

    We want to make a commotion, but we dont want to interfere with edu-cation, McCullen said.

    The students agreed the ringing would only take place between classes, and the bell began to toll around 12:05 p.m.

    The bell was restored, and alls right in the world, Jackson said.

    But the bell-ringing wont be the last of the GSPHE

    McCullen and co-found-er Melissa Hovanes, have worked to build up the University chapter, which is only a few weeks old, and McCullen said the group is getting started now so that it can have an influence on budget decisions in the coming semesters.

    Hovanes became involved with the organiza-tion during the student protest against budget cuts at the state Capitol in March.

    At that time, students were hearing rumors of $300 million cuts to higher education, but since March, the budget cut number from the Legislature has come down significantly

    Thursday marked the end of the legislative ses-sion at the state Capitol, and the House and Senate came to an agreement about the fiscal year 2011 budget leaving the

    University with about $157 million in additional cuts, said Scott Blount, a bud-get analyst in the House budget office.

    Now, the Board of Regents will plan their course of action.

    Over the next few weeks, theyll digest the budget cuts and the money the have, Blount said.

    The Regents will likely make a decision about tuition increases at their meeting on May 11.

    S Helen Herring rings the Chapel bell Thursday in protest of cuts to higher education. The state Legislature decided to lessen its proposed cuts.

    By JULIA CARPENTER THE RED & BLACK

    Given the sourest lemon of all a day with no pay Ron Orlando didnt whine. He decided to give back to the community.

    Designed as a Gandhi-like response to the Universitys furlough policy, Orlando, a research professor in the Universitys Complex Carbohydrate Center, orga-nized Furlough Lemon-Aid, a project that puts University professors in local schools to volunteer-teach on the Universitys April 30 furlough day.

    Orlando said he first brain-stormed the project in August 2009 when the furlough dates were announced.

    I always try and be an optimist, the whole bit. So this really fits into me as a whole, instead of being Mr. Pessimist and always worry-ing about stuff, he said. Lets stop worrying about stuff we cant control and just

    get paid for this stuff we can control.

    In just e-mailing this idea to other faculty, looking for their feedback on the proj-ects possible viability, Orlando managed to gather more than 65 volunteers to serve in the Athens-Clarke County school system on Friday.

    Mark Farmer, a professor of cell biology, said he noticed one small typo in Orlandos e-mail, which for him came to epitomize the projects phil-anthropic outlook.

    In his e-mail he had said he wanted to take what is perceived as a negative thing and, putting a very positive spin on it, and, as he put it, making lemonade out of lem-ons. But he misspelled lem-onade with an a-i-d instead of a-d-e, Farmer said.

    Farmer was inspired by this simple three-letter mis-take.

    That reminded me of things such as Farm-Aid, fund-raising concert events

    from a few decades ago in which people did a similar thing: taking their strengths and using them constructive-ly for the good of the commu-nity, he said.

    Farmer will be entertaining and instructing fourth and fifth graders at both St. Josephs Catholic School and Barnett Shoals Elementary School with his Mr. Microscope show.

    Farmer plans to bring his microscope and a video cam-era to show students what pond water and other sub-stances look like up close.

    Little kids can come home, and they say, Oh, well what did you do at school today? and they can say, This guy from UGA came and showed us termite poop! It was really cool! Farmer said.

    Mark Wheeler, a professor of dance, got Orlandos e-mail as it spread outside the sci-ence disciplines into other fields on campus. He will be teaching salsa and swing dance at Cedar Shoals High

    School.With no other commit-

    ments that day, it was a natu-ral, he told The Red & Black.

    Jon Swindler, a professor of art in the Lamar Dodd School of Art, was similarly excited by Orlandos e-mail.

    Lemon-Aid provides us as faculty the opportunity to share our expertise beyond the borders of our campus, hopefully sparking an interest in some of the students with whom well be working, he told The Red & Black.

    Swindler will help students at Cedar Shoals High School screen print prepared poems and images through a process called Xerox-lithography.

    This is certainly a great opportunity to showcase to everybody that UGA faculty and staff really are involved in our community, Farmer said. Instead of sitting home on Friday and grumbling about not being paid, were doing something positive and con-structive with our time.

    On a day without pay, faculty find a bright side

    BELL: Tuition decisions come in May

  • Oh, Bailey. Being proud of where youre from is one thing; being self-righteous about it is quite another. I can hear the Tomahawk Chop ... you wrote in your column, Suburbanites cannot claim Atlanta status, (April 29). And you can see Russia from your house, right? Can you name any other ettas or do you really hate the burbs that much?

    Perhaps youre just not fully aware of the plight facing us lowly suburbanites. It goes something like this: Where are you from? LaGrange, you? Roswell. Wheres that?

    Look, its not our fault that Atlanta has such a sprawling metro area with so many suburbs. Like I said, its natural to be proud of where youre from, but the view from atop that high horse of yours must be getting old.

    So come on down, mighty Atlantan, and realize that we dont claim Atlanta because were envi-ous or because we feel entitled to.

    You can keep your smog and your crime and your interstate

    highways chirping in the morning. You can also keep your notions of suburban life and recognize that eclecticism doesnt vanish once you leave the perimeter. You can keep all of it and still rest assured that its Roswell that runs in my blood, even when I claim Atlanta as home. Thank goodness for that, too.

    The thought of contributing to your overwhelming stench of holier-than-thou makes me want to move to Donalsonville.

    Bigotry not involved in Christian groups rule

    It is not bigotry for the Christian Legal Society at the University of California to hold its members to Christian standards of behavior as written in Bigotry not right of Christian group, (April 29).

    It would be hypocrisy if they didnt.Their standards of sexual moral-

    ity are aimed primarily, not at gays, but at the extremely widespread practice of premarital sex.

    As far as I can make out, they target only voluntary behavior, not peoples sexual orientation or inner nature. The real problem here is the way student organizations have become arms of the university and thus of the state government.

    The solution is probably to sepa-rate all student organizations not just this one more cleanly from taxpayer-funded institutions. Why should taxpayers subsidize any stu-dent advocacy organizations at all?

    In any case, no matter how much you disagree with the Christian Legal Society, be careful what you advocate doing to it. It could have a chilling effect on the right of any student group to advocate any unpopular cause.

    Last Friday, Arizona passed a terrible law in an attempt to crack down on immigration in the state. Gov. Jan Brewer signed a law stating that an individual can be stopped based on the reason-able suspicion that they are in the U.S. illegally.

    How does anyone decide what reasonable suspicion is? Do we judge by appearance? Do we listen for an accent?

    According to Rep. Brian Bilbray (R-Calif.), a trained professional can determine if a person is illegal just by looking at their clothes.

    This law is just a thinly-veiled attack on Latinos. If I were to drive around in Arizona listening to reg-gaeton wearing my Mexican soccer jersey, I may get stopped and asked for documented proof that I am in the country legally, regardless of the fact that I was born in Chicago and have been living in the United States all of my life

    Everyone knows that Arizona is not targeting African, European or Asian undocumented immigrants. People whose American heritage stretches back generations can be stopped by police because of the color of their skin.

    What is that other than racial profiling? And since approximately 30 percent of Arizonas population is Latino, the state will be a breed-ing ground for civil law suits.

    Immigration reform is a highly-controversial topic that ruffles feathers and instigates debates about taxes and the future of the Caucasian race in the United States of America.

    According to the Pew Research Center, 117 million people will be added to the U.S. population between the years of 2005 and 2050.

    Due to the effect of new immi-gration, 67 million will be new immi-grants and 50 million will be either

    their U.S.-born children or grand-children.

    Within the last 10 years, more than 1.7 million new residents set-tled in Georgia. Approximately 25 percent of these new residents were immigrants.

    What do all of these statistics mean? Our country is one of the most economically-promising countries in the world, and as long as freedom and liberty resonate throughout our country, immigra-tion will continue.

    The American immigration pro-cess is so tedious, expensive and convoluted, forcing many immi-grants to arrive in hopes of one day becoming legal residents.

    What is going to happen while we wait for our legislators to decide on the details of the next federal immi-gration bill? Children who were brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents are graduating from high schools all over the country. Those ambitious enough to find private sponsors will go on to community or private colleges and graduate.

    But undocumented students do not qualify for federal aid and many four-year state colleges require applicants to submit proof of citi-zenship or legal residency prevent-ing them from gaining an education. They will be ineligible to work in the U.S. due to their legal status in the country. Not to mention, states are going to continue to act on their own accord and pass laws like the one in Arizona.

    Immigration reforms have been proposed that would potentially smooth out the path to legal resi-

    dency for the millions of undocu-mented immigrants in the U.S.

    We cannot allow for this injustice to continue in our country. Show your support for comprehensive immigration reform by joining me in a march this Saturday at 10 a.m. in front of the Capitol building in Atlanta.

    Everyone is affected by this issue, and we should all do our part to bring about positive change. Study international development and help feeder countries become more politically, socially and eco-nomically stable.

    E-mail, call and lobby to your representatives to tell them you support comprehensive immigra-tion reform. Educate your peers on the issue, so they do not believe the ridiculous myths about immigra-tion.

    Support local organizations who provide services for immigrant com-munities. Here in Athens alone, groups such as the Economic Justice Coalition and Casa de Amistad provide English classes for immigrant workers. They organize events to educate immigrants about their unalienable, human rights.

    Check out Students for Latin Empowerment, an organization at UGA dedicated to educating the campus community about issues affecting Latinos, such as those of immigration and education reform. These are just a handful of places where you can begin to network and find like-minded individuals dedicated to making progressive change.

    No matter how big or small your efforts are, they will make a differ-ence.

    Act now.

    Eclecticism exists outside of downtown E-mail and letters from our readers

    Imagine: the tuition you have to pay increased. Professors teaching the classes you need to graduate fired. The days you planned to spend in the library furloughed. The botanical gardens you admired compost.

    And theres no toilet paper in the MLC.Unfortunately, you may not need to imagine

    next semester. Though the state legislature announced a

    $157 million budget cut for the University of Georgia approximately half of a previous budget cut proposal this will still pose signifi-cant problems for the University.

    The Board of Regents has suggested a pos-sible tuition increase of 15 to 20 percent com-pared to its prior 30 percent estimate.

    The editorial board of The Red & Black encourages students to prepare for these upcoming changes. As the economic recession still plagues our state and our wallets receiving a quality education at an affordable price is becoming more and more difficult with each year. A recent University e-mail informed students that, yes, the library will be open for Reading Day. A closed library during Reading Day may one day become the norm.

    Like it or not, the University wont be the same. Half of a $300 million cut means fund-ing for programs such as 4-H and landmarks such as the Botanical Gardens may vanish. Decreased hours mean students may have even more difficulty finding places to study. This could be the future of Georgias education sys-tem. Get ready for next year.

    Its graduation day. Youre about to start a new adventure called life.

    Oh, never mind. Youre asleep at your place. Maybe youll get up to let the cat out or wash off the odors of the Loft. But youre not graduating today.

    Youre about to become what the University System of Georgia refers to as a super senior a student unrestricted by the concept of time itself. Maybe you forgot to fulfill that Area K multicultural PE requirement.

    Perhaps at the last min-ute you realized the news-paper industry was dying. A career as a tree harvest-er would be more viable. Our lieutenant governor is proud of you. Graduating is for suckers.

    But now youll need some help. Sure, youll be the envy of your graduat-ing friends leaving Athens for careers in business. It means you can lord your extra year or two of life experience over your younger friends, just as Alton Brown lords his knowledge of cupcake his-tory over a sweaty and enraptured audience of cupcake enthusiasts.

    But there are draw-backs. First deal with questions from friends. Why are you still in town, again? Friends and acquaintances will ask you a variant of this question approximately six times a day until you move your La-Z-Boy and bookcase back into Moms base-ment. If youre like me, eventually youll come up with a canned answer.

    This will quickly get boring. Make up different answers to fit the occa-sion. Im finally doing what I love. I recently got off parole. Im trying to become a more well-rounded person.

    Lies like these will make the questions seem more

    like word puzzles, and peer interactions more like daily brain teasers. But you dont need to be a Food Network host to know that eventually all lies have to be covered with more lies.

    Luckily for you, that never stopped any super senior from having fun. When your friends get sick of your act, just make new friends.

    Start an Animal Collective cover band. Loiter downtown. Learn how to roll a cigarette and ride a one-speed bicycle at the same time.

    These activities will give you something to talk about when Mom calls to ask why youre still in Athens if you dont have a day job.

    Thats the next step progress reports to parents. Unless they fol-low you on Twitter, its likely Mom and Dad have no idea what youre doing with your life now. But they will ask questions.

    When are you graduat-ing? Take your gradua-tion date and subtract a semester.

    Are you coming home anytime soon? The answer should always be no. Youll minimize the crippling depression your parents feel every time their friends ask about your hypothetical post-graduate career. At least your rare appearances back home will be greeted with more fanfare than an Of Montreal concert.

    As Biggie said, follow these rules and youll have mad bread to break up. See you on Washington Street.

    Budget news on Thursday wasnt all doom and gloom for the participants in one state-sponsored education program a program holding a place in the hearts of several University students.

    Former participants in the Governors Honors Program a six-week summer camp for gifted high school students were frightened when they learned the program might face the bud-get ax, but the Legislature decided to save GHP, shortening it from six weeks to four.

    Will Burgess, a freshman from Woodstock, said he did all he could to organize other GHP students to fight for the program.

    Burgess created a petition and got more than 1,700 signatures, he said.

    Its one of those things that unifies the state education system, Burgess said, adding that GHP is an incredible recruiting tool for the states University System.

    I know plenty of people that wouldve gone to college out of state if it wasnt for what they got from GHP, he said. It teaches leadership.

    Dale Lyles, an assistant director for GHP, is glad the program has not been eliminated.

    Its the oldest continuously-running pro-gram of its kind in the United States, Lyles said. It is one of the few that is absolutely free to its participants fully funded by state Legislature.

    Lyles said GHP motivates students by offer-ing instruction significantly different than the high school classroom.

    Theyre forced to think and learn how to learn all over again, he said. Theyre asked to learn for fun. The only thing theyre competing for is their own self esteem. We turn them into lifelong learners.

    This semester, the Universitys New Media Institute celebrates its 10th birthday; however, the pro-gram has been met with a few problems about 30 of them.

    To get into the required classes for the program, stu-dents are finding more com-petition and less class space.

    Scott Shamp, the New Media Institutes director, said the system is designed to filter interested students from their less qualified peers.

    First, students enroll in a large introductory lecture class with close to 300 stu-dents. In order to continue with the certificate program, students then apply for one of the production classes, but these accept smaller groups.

    Shamp said the number of students applying for New Media courses has increased drastically.

    In the past, students, as they moved through that funnel of classes, some dropped out, werent inter-ested, or they didnt perform very well as they moved through the program, Shamp said. Lately, we

    havent had that attrition as weve moved along the pro-gram. In the past we might only have 20, maybe 30, applying for a capstone class. We now have 50 of the 60 that came through the pro-duction class applying. Thats where were really running into a problem.

    In the fall semester there is only one capstone class, the final requirement for the certificate program.

    The way were address-ing the increased demand is increasing class size, Shamp said. The problem is, when you get to a capstone class, we can only really handle 20 students. Its such intense work that they have to go through. The only way to change it is to add more classes and that means weve got to find the resources to do that. Certainly programs that are addressing industry needs and student demand are experiencing those prob-lems, too.

    Senior Kelli Hammock, who has completed her New Media certificate, said the capstone classes are more intense because they do actual technology work with specific clients.

    But Hammock said she loved working in the New Media program.

    I felt more at home in the New Media Institute, Hammock said. I enjoyed having the artistic aspect of online story telling.

    Hammock got to channel her artistic side for website design, and she said her new media skills will help her get a job after graduation.

    The New Media Institute teaches students to work with emerging technologies and in advanced classes helps students develop technologies of their own.

    Shamp said the job mar-ket has a demand for new media skills.

    This technology is radi-cally changing every one of the mass communication fields, he said. Its evolved.

    Its a lot more mobile a lot more different types of deliv-ery mechanisms. What really is important is that this is a brand new way people are communicating, and its widespread. This has become such a huge part of our life, theres not a single career thats not touched by this technology.

    The New Media Institute will look to the future of the technology world at an event this Saturday.

    Personal Media, Public Good, which will feature demonstrations and discus-sions about the new media world, will take place in room 101 of the Miller Learning Center. Registration begins at 12:30 p.m.

    Bridget Lyons had to set some pictures on her Facebook page to private before applying to dental school.

    Lyons, a senior from Augusta majoring in biolo-gy and Spanish, said she is aware that basically any-one can gain access to a social networking profile, and it could ruin a stu-dents chances of getting into a school or being hired for a job.

    The pictures dont have to be bad or have anything wrong in them, but if someone sees a cer-tain picture before they know you, you might be better off just taking it

    down, Lyons said. She said students should

    realize Facebook is public, and employers can learn a lot about someone before even meeting them in per-son.

    I think employers look at your pictures and the About You section, Lyons said. I know one of my friends had some pretty liberal quotes on her pro-file, and her employer was a conservative company and almost didnt hire her because of that.

    Marian Higgins, career consultant for Grady College, referred to a study done by CareerBuilder.com in 2006. Higgins said the study found 26 percent of 1,150 hiring managers used search engines to learn

    about potential employees and 12 percent said they used social networking sites. Of the managers who checked social networking sites, 63 percent said they did not hire the applicant due to the information on their profile.

    Employers may look at pictures, group affiliations and overall content of the profile, Higgins said. They may review the entire pro-file just to get a sense of the applicant.

    However, Higgins said its possible to use social networking sites positively.

    I perceive Facebook as a more personal form of social media, while LinkedIn is more profes-sional in nature, Higgins said. Students should con-

    sider using LinkedIn for creating a professional image, marketing their experience and making professional connections.

    James Hataway, a teach-ing assistant for an intro-ductory journalism class, often reminds students they should be careful with the information they dis-close online because their personal and professional lives may intertwine.

    I think a lot of larger corporations are taking that sort of thing more seri-ously and vetting a lot of their potential employees by looking at their history on social networking sites like Facebook and Myspace, Hataway said. Obviously, if a person is demonstrating outwardly

    irresponsible behavior over and over again and posting it on their profile, that sends up a red flag to the employer.

    In order to allow stu-dents to ask questions dur-ing class without interrupt-ing the lecture, Hataway

    created a Twitter page for the course where students can post comments or questions. Hataway said he has seen numerous tweets about his students private lives.

    I think a lot of times, people tweet without really thinking what theyre tweeting about, Hataway said. I see things all the time. I see people describ-ing things from their drunk-en behavior the night before to their latest sexual escapades. It can get pret-ty explicit sometimes.

    Students such as Lyons who do not want their information and party pic-tures to be accessed by future employers set their profiles to private.

    However, Hataway said its nave to think the pri-vacy setting can stop peo-ple from accessing some-ones profile.

    Despite the fact that some people set their pro-file to private and con-sciously try to limit who can access their page, its important to remember that there are a lot of peo-ple out there who are incredibly computer savvy and might be able to get around those simple blocks, he said.

    Hataway said peoples private lives should remain just that private.

    Honestly, I think its just common sense, Hataway said. I dont think theres anything wrong with demonstrating that you like to go out and have fun. Putting up pho-tographs or stories from trips is completely fine. But use your common sense, and if you dont want a stranger to know some-thing, dont put it on a social networking site.

    University officials are projecting the Stadion Athens Classic golf tourna-ment will be a hole in one for the school and the com-munity.

    The tournament, which is part of the Nationwide Tour, is this weekend at the University of Georgia Golf Club and has attract-ed national attention to the University and Athens.

    Its a huge public rela-tions positive thing for the community, but its also given the University and the golf course as a whole huge national coverage, said Dave Cousart, direc-tor of the Stadion tourna-ment. Were all over the PGA Tour website, and there will be some golf

    channel coverage and stuff like that.

    Additionally, the tour-nament has already gener-ated a large amount of rev-enue.

    Tom Jackson, vice pres-ident of public affairs, said the University had hoped to break even on tourna-ment costs within the first year, and they have already accomplished that goal.

    As of last night weve sold $87,000 worth of tick-ets, Cousart said. Were just doing really well.

    Additional revenue will go toward the Arch Foundation, which will use the money to fund need-based scholarships.

    The University is also participating in the Tickets Fore Charity program.

    Charities are able to sell tickets and keep the profits from their ticket sales for their own funds, Jackson said.

    Cousart said the University was participat-ing in the program in order

    to let the community join in on the tournament.

    We kind of purposely made the event communi-ty-encompassing, Cousart said.

    He said the tournament is projected to bring $2 million into the Georgia economy, but the revenue could be even higher, given the tournaments prestige.

    All of these people on this tour aspire to be on the PGA Tour. I think its about 70 percent of the people on the PGA Tour are gradu-ates of the Nationwide Tour, Cousart said.

    Jackson said the event would be prosperous for the University and Athens.

    Youve seen that the players are praising the course as one of the best courses theyve ever played on. So thats good for the reputation of the golf course, he said. Its just good for the Athens com-munity, to be able to host a high-profile golf tourna-ment like that.

    With the end of the semester looming large, the University is ready to make the Miller Learning Center go even more green.

    Kevin Kirsche, director of sustainability in the newly formed Office of Sustainablilty, plans to test a pilot program over the summer for saving money at the MLC.

    Kirsche is working with the MLC and the University libraries to save money on printed paper, ink and elec-tricity through what he calls the green computing pilot program.

    We found out we use a lot of paper at the MLC roughly 240,000 sheets a month, Kirsche said.

    In order to save paper, the program calls for duplex, or double-sided, printing, to be set as the default for printing in the MLC.

    This pilot is intended to test the waters in terms of what our patrons prefer and also to see what kind of wear and tear this might have on the printers, said Caroline Barratt, director of the MLC and University libraries.

    She said the MLC already employs several different methods for sav-ing money, including recy-cling and timers on lights, heating and air condition-ing.

    Reducing our paper use would be an excellent addition to these other green practices, Barratt said.

    The program would also recommend using thinner fonts for printed material as way to save on costs, Kirsche said.

    The office is even look-ing into using eco-fonts, which would put small holes in each printed letter, significantly lowering ink and ink cartridge costs, Kirsche said.

    A third part of the pro-posed program would involve shutting down the 550 computers in the MLC nightly instead of only over the winter break.

    Turning off the comput-ers each night would save roughly $20,000 a year, Kirsche said.

    Assuming that it goes well, it will carry into the fall as an official program and could spread to other departments, he said.

    The MLC and the Office of Sustainability plan to begin the pilot program together sometime in May.

    We would like to begin the program at Maymester, if possible, but still have some details to iron out, Barratt said.

    Tournament gives back

  • By RACHEL G. BOWERSTHE RED & BLACK

    Stephen Pfannkuches ears were first introduced to oldies in his moms maroon Chrysler Town & Country van when he was only five years old.

    The junior from Flower Mound, Texas, tagged along with his mom to run errands just so he could hear the likes of Fox 97 and the Beach Boys.

    Though he doesnt cite his parents as great musi-cal influences growing up, Pfannkuche heard Voodoo Child Slight Return by Jimi Hendrix in seventh grade and wanted to figure out how the legendary gui-tarist had his way with his instrument.

    After that, I knew that I had to have one, Pfannkuche said.

    Pfannkuches grand-mother bought him his first guitar, and he began to learn how to make his fingers dance up and down the strings.

    However, his musical pursuits got off to a slow start, despite encourage-ment from his high school friends.

    I didnt really have any time to pursue any cre-ative efforts at all in high school, Pfannkuche said. Just coming to college and having so much free time has been one of the best things.

    After a stack of college acceptance and rejection letters to music schools across the country began to pile up, Pfannkuche found himself in Athens floundering in the music scene.

    In a town that is crawl-ing with starving artists willing to lend a hand to those in similar pursuits, Pfannkuche began putting pen to paper, scribbling out poetry. Those verses later transformed into lyr-ics for one of his three bands The Peter Pancakes, an acoustic folk

    trio and the band Pfannkuche referred to as his brainchild.

    I started out writing songs, and [David Tuna Fortuna] just kind of offered one day, I play upright bass. If you ever need help with any of your songs, Id be more than happy to do it, Pfannkuche said. Ive never had to go out and look for musicians for the Pancakes, and thats kind of how Ive been with other bands, too.

    Those other bands include Tumbleweed Stampede made up of six members and Hans Darkbolt made up of four permanent members with a little extra thrown in every now and then.

    I think the biggest advantage thats come from playing in a bunch of different bands is Ben [Papillon, of Tumbleweed Stampede] and Peter Doveys [of Hans Darkbolt] writing styles will kind of influence my

    own, Pfannkuche said. Theyll have a song thatll have a chord change in it or something and Im like, Oh, that really sounds cool. I wonder how I can adapt that to stuff that I write for the Pancakes.

    The genres of the three bands vary, from folk music in The Peter Pancakes to the really jammy feel of Tumbleweed Stampede to the very classical music influenced, over-the-top sound of Hans Darkbolt.

    All of the bands allow Pfannkuche to explore his different musical abilities in being the songwriter and lead singer of the Pancakes to falling into a background vocals role in

    his other two bands.Amidst all of his band

    practices and songwriting, getting on stage provides something for Pfannkuche that nothing else can.

    I love playing in front of people, Pfannkuche said. Its one of my favor-ite things to do. Any time someone asks me, Oh, play a song! I always jump on the opportunity. I abso-lutely love playing in front of people. It definitely energizes you in a way that not a whole lot else can.

    We then proceeded to run as fast as we could to the Brumby parking deck, Fisher said. There was definitely a getaway car.

    It could not have been done alone. In fact, it was altogether a six-man oper-ation.

    There were two guys lowering the keg, two wait-ing at the bottom, one driver and one camera-man, he said.

    Oglethorpe HouseStudent Housing

    Community Guide: p. 20 Defenestration

    From the community guide: Throwing items through residence hall windows is prohibited. Failure to adhere to this policy may result in refer-ral through a University judicial process.

    If you were once

    attacked by water balloons while leaving the Oglethorpe Dining Commons during the 2007-2008 school year, your assailants are speaking out.

    Now juniors, Stephanie Kittrell and Mary Evelyn Gray are ready to talk.

    Me and my roommate use to throw water bal-loons at people from our fourth floor window, Kittrell said. We targeted people coming out of the dining hall, but our favor-ite was drunk people com-ing home from downtown.

    These femme fatales showed no mercy to peo-ple dressed nicely.

    No man, woman, sex, race or subgroup was left untouched in the cata-strophic path of the bal-loons, Gray said.

    It all started innocently enough.

    One day Stephanie and I figured out that our

    window was in perfect position to hit people com-ing out of the dining hall, Gray said. So we engaged in scientific testing to

    determine whether or not the impact of said balloon would really hurt some-one.

    The girls forced one of

    their friends to stand out-side and take the test blows.

    Dollar Tree water bal-loons proved to be durable in flight, but not harmful, Gray said. The range and dynamic bounce was a double threat.

    In order to avoid pun-ishment, Kittrell and Gray were careful not to reveal their identities.

    We never showed our faces, Gray said. We always closed the window right after.

    However, their identity was compromised when Kittrell broke a blind.

    When the people told on us, who by the way are losers I mean were in college, get over yourselves they told the RA that it was the room with the broken blind, Kittrell said. Anyways, we got a knock on the door, so we got rid of all the evidence.

    When the girls thought they had for sure been caught, they denied it.

    We lied, Gray said with absolutely no remorse. We blamed it on the seventh floor.

    Creswell HallViolation of Student

    Community: p. 21 Disruptive Behavior

    From the community guide: Behavior that inter-feres with the normal func-tioning of a residence hall or unnecessarily impedes on the rights of students and/or staff is prohibited.

    This includes, but is not limited to: behavior where the safety of participants, other students or property is compromised; hall

    sports; water fights; pranks; student displays/demonstrations that create a disruptive environment; lewd or indecent behavior.

    Despite what our moth-ers have told us, there is something irresistible about playing sports indoors.

    Thats why Aaron Durrette, a junior biology major, and his hallmates decided to play Frisbee in the hall.

    We all had our doors open, and there were probably like five or six rooms of people playing Frisbee in our hall, Durrette said.

    It all seemed like a harmless little game of catch until someone didnt catch.

    The Frisbee was being thrown to me, but he threw high and it hit the fire alarm, Durrette said. At first it just started blinking really fast, but then it set off the alarm through the entire build-ing.

    All nine floors of the dorm were evacuated, and a standard fire safety pro-cedure had to then take place.

    Durrette and his friends were hoping to avoid per-secution, but werent that lucky.

    The Creswell Housing director told us that they could tell that the fire alarm went off in 7D, Durrette said.

    No one ratted out the individual who actually threw the Frisbee to set off the alarm this hall-ways bond was strong.

    Freshmen pivotal in the NCAA tourney

    By NICK PARKERTHE RED & BLACK

    Professional golf isnt supposed to be easy.

    For a college junior making his first profes-sional start, Georgias Harris English made it look just that on Thursday easy.

    English admitted he was feeling the nerves, although he showed no signs of nerves by firing a 3-under-par 68 in the first round of the Nationwide Tours Stadion Athens Classic at UGA.

    Englishs first profes-sional round has him just two shots back of the three-way tie at the top of the leader board, and in a tie for 10th in a field in which he and teammate Russell Henley are the only two ama-teurs.

    I was definitely nervous on the first couple of holes. I was just trying to get off to a good start, English said. I just kept telling myself, Its just another golf round out here, play just like qualifying out here.

    Every time English started to get nervous, he had his teammate Hudson Swafford, a senior who is caddying for him this week, there to make a joke and calm his nerves.

    As Swafford put it afterwards, the vet knowledge got the young pup around.

    And Swafford had only

    good things to say about his teammate.

    [Harris] striped it. It was easy, we just kind of talked and cut up, Swafford said.

    Starting his day on hole No. 10 and hitting a birdie on par-5 No. 12, eased the tension a little bit as he cruised to an even-par opening nine, English said.

    His putter got hot, draining birdie putts on three of his last six holes to vault himself into con-tention heading into the second round Friday.

    I really thought even-par was going to be a solid round thats always a solid round out here but once I got a couple under, I tried to go at some birdies a lit-tle more, English said. But overall, 3-under, Im very satisfied with it.

    Henley, the No. 1 col-lege player in the country, was also cruising along with an even-par round until he met trouble on the par-5 No. 12, hooking his second shot into the water for a double bogey.

    He would finish the day with a 2-over-par 73.

    I started out pretty well, but I made a couple bad swings on the back which cost me a couple shots, Henley said. But Im playing fine, Im not really too worried about it.

    Dogs golfer makes impressive pro debut

    By LISA GLASERTHE RED & BLACK

    Each court is a puzzle piece snapping into place to form a complete lineup for the Georgia mens ten-nis team.

    Six pieces are in place to create a larger picture, framed by the hope for a third national title in four years.

    But with a missing piece suspended freshman Bo Seal the No. 12 Bulldogs face the challenge of com-pleting their puzzle short-handed. The lineup will definitely change, and the question lingers of whether it will all still fit together.

    Seal, who is sus-pended due to vio-lating the teams attendance policy, played on courts four through six this season until being benched for the South Carolina match April 9. The Chattanooga, Tenn., native has not played since, as his suspension was confirmed to be the remainder of this years postseason matches following last weekends SEC Tournament.

    Seal is not even practic-ing with the team in these few weeks before the NCAA Tournaments first and sec-ond rounds, which begin on May 15. The decision on

    whether Seal will continue with the team next season is yet to be determined.

    Obviously this is a blow and upsets the rhythm and the chemistry, head coach Manuel Diaz said. Were going forward and were preparing for our biggest goal of the year. The ones that are on board are the ones that are here and we move forward.

    The players newly on board in the lineup will include freshmen Will Reynolds and Will Oliver.

    Each first-year player competed in two matches during the regular outdoor season against unranked Furman and No. 71 William & Mary before Seals untimely suspension.

    Reynolds and Oliver have filled in on the lower courts for four matches fol-lowing the suspen-sion, as the teams only win since came over the No. 50 South Carolina Gamecocks.

    Theyre gaining experience on a daily basis as they go along and get more and more exposure, Diaz said. Theres no doubt that probably some teams are more experienced at those spots, but experi-ence is sometimes the difference and sometimes its not.

    For the rest of the post-season, Diaz plans for Reynolds to compete in singles while Oliver pairs with junior Drake Bernstein in doubles.

    Reynolds feels prepared for the NCAA Tournament,

    despite not seeing consis-tent playing time during the regular season and not knowing precisely how he will fit into the lineup. The freshman, who rooms with both Oliver and Seal, finds motivation and encourage-ment through the work of his older teammates.

    The biggest thing hasnt been so much what [the upperclassmen have] said [as far as advice], but to see it, to see the way that theyre working and the time that theyre put-ting in, Reynolds said.

    The senior captains Alex Hill, Jamie Hunt, Nate Schnugg and Christian Vitulli have gone through three tournaments before.

    In two out of those three tournaments, the seniors were crowned national champions.

    Both Oliver and Reynolds will now have to work their way back home, as Athens hosts the NCAA Championships from May 20-31. The two freshmen would crack a home-match lineup for the first time since March 9, and some-how attempt to fill the hole Seal has left behind.

    Obviously, the circum-stances are not what I had hoped, Reynolds said. I didnt want a player to get suspended and thats how Id get into the lineup. But Im really excited this is something Ive dreamed of.

    Head coach Mark Richt said in a Thursday media teleconference that junior quarterback Logan Gray is still mulling a decision to transfer and that there is no timetable for his deci-sion.

    He wants to play, and right now hes not sure that he can. I made it real clear clear as a bell that we just had a post-spring depth chart and that doesnt mean any-ones a starter at any posi-tion, including quarter-back, Richt said. Logan was No. 2 behind Murray and Im sure that was what triggered [the meet-ing].

    If he wants to be at Georgia, were glad to have him, and we certainly are a better team with him than without him.

    Recruiting philosophy takes a U-turn in 2010

    As the 2010 National Signing Day came to a close three months ago, it

    was pretty obvious that the Bulldogs hadnt lived up to their usual high expectations on the recruiting front as a vari-ety of in-state prospects left the state for rival pro-grams.

    Richt apparently wasnt pleased either, changing the philosophy for the recruiting calendar this season, and turning his full attention to the Peach State.

    One of the biggest dif-ferences is, regardless of where we want [the coach-es to go recruit] out of the state, I was making sure within these first two weeks were going to ham-mer Georgia the way it needs to be hammered, Richt said.

    Typically, during the four-week evaluation peri-od that coaches are cur-rently in, the Georgia staff would hit out-of-state prospects first, particularly if they had seen Georgia prospects in spring foot-ball.

    However, that philoso-phy has been rewritten this year, with coaches hoping to protect their own turf before trying to raid anyone elses.

    The bottom line is every coach is going to cover his Georgia area within the first two weeks of this recruiting season, Richt said. Were saying Georgia is No. 1 as far as our thoughts, and thats how were going to handle it and make sure we do that, not only by philoso-phy but in actuality. And the other thing is we know were going to recruit out of state, we must, and we want to. But when we go out of state, he better be special.

    Offensive lineman rehab-bing

    After tearing the anteri-or cruciate ligament in his left knee for the second time in last seasons open-er, junior left tackle Trinton Sturdivant is rehabbing and on schedule to return to full health in time for the upcoming sea-

    son.We do expect him to be

    ready by preseason, Richt said. He feels like this repair just feels different to him, it feels better to him, and whether thats psycho-logical or not, I dont know.

    Richt said Sturdivants recovery wouldnt be rushed.

    I would think that were going to take a good pace and take our time and maybe not give him every single rep he could take just to make sure hes healthy, he said. We want him healthy, but hes really projected to be full go when we get going.

    SEC expansion

    With the threat of con-ference expansion in the Big 10 setting off discus-sions around the nation, Richt was asked for his take on the SEC pos-sibly taking in a few new schools.

    Well, I think in my mind its doubtful, but I dont know. I havent really read real closely whats

    going on and what the possibilities are if its just a discussion or some kind of movement thats more serious, Richt said. But Id be surprised, if

    that happens anytime soon. I could see the other leagues getting to the for-mat we have which I think is a great format with six teams on each side and a championship game. That would make more sense to me than try-ing to get these super con-ferences, because you dont get to play everybody when you do that.
