guard, Joe Johnson.

For those who don't remem-
ber how to the play the game
(you're not a bailer) here's a
quick reminder: If a player
makes a shot in 'HORSE' the
next competitor must make
the same shot or receive a
letter if the shot is missed. A
player gets an 'H' for their first
miss and is eliminated once

they have all five letters of the

The players will have 24
seconds to perform their
shots, and an NBA referee
(not a Southern referee, thank
goodness!) will rule if they're
done properly. Dunking won't
be allowed.

'HORSE' has to be one of
the best games to play in bas-
ketball. No sweat, no fouls, no
referees, no substitutions; just
you, the ball and the basket. If
Jesus were a bailer he would
be the greatest. He'd shoot
from heaven and he'd say: Off
of Saturn, off the moon, over
the highest mountain, under
the lowest valley, in my blood,
off the cross, through your
sins, nothing but net.

10 things I learned at Southern


i. Lack of interest in
current events. It seems
that most students are way
more worried about getting
mustard in the cafe or reduc-
ing convocation and worship
requirements than they are
about current world events.

2. Bluffing on essay tests
is a breeze. You don't actu-
ally even have to know the cor-
rect answer to the question,
you just have to convince the
teacher that you do.

3. True or false: Not so
easy. Statistics say that if you
guess on true/false questions
you should get half right. Sta-
tistics are wrong.

4. The sad truth about
the girls. Fact: Girls can't
go to the bathroom without
50 friends going along. Fact:
Girls can't go with a guy any-
where without 50 friends go-
ing along. Conclusion: A guy
must be like a bathroom.

5. The Collegedale po-
lice have a big chip on
their shoulder. The major-
ity of the force are Southern
alumni; horrible things -were
done to them to make them so

6. Dating is like high
school sports. The jerks are
always picked first.

7. The network is the
best new thing since our
parents were here. You
want to know what the best

new thing for them was? Hav-
ing soda in the cafeteria-albe-
it caffeine-free, a carbonated
beverage nonetheless.

8. Stupid footwear is
rampant and unchecked.
Crocs may be the most com-
fortable thing since flip-flops,
but they still look stupid.

9. Veggie meat. If you ask
another dude for a Big Frank
anywhere but Southern, you
would be punched in the face.

to. Top 3 Campus Safety
directives: 1. Give parking
tickets. 2. Harass longboard-
ers on their way to class. 3.
Wreck trucks and golf carts.

Friends in the Park, a home-

Chattanooga, has become a
weekend tradition for some
Southern students looking to
make a difference.

Justin Jones, a senior re-

ligious studies major, started
the ministry with his family
last May. One Sabbath they
took food to downtown Chat-
tanooga to try and find people
in need of a meal. They were
so blessed by the experience
that they are now making the
trip to Miller Park every other
Sabbath with a much larger


"Since then the project has
grown and we are feeding any-

City offers
early voting
to benefit

Emily Young
Managing tnnnn

For the first time in the his-
tory of Collegedale city elec-
tions, Southern students and
faculty will be able to partici-
pate in early voting at Colleg-
edale City Hall. Early elections
will be held Feb. 23 to Feb.
26. To increase convenience,
there will be free rides from
Southern to City Hall. A van
will leave every half hour from
10 a.m. to 6 p.m. from Wright
Hall for those wanting to vote.
"We've had early voting
before, but people had to go
downtown to the election com-
mission," said Tim Johnson
who is running for reelection
to the Board of Commission-
ers. This year early voting will
be more convenient for South-
ern students and faculty by be-
ing less than two miles down
the road.

The elections, which happen
every two years, often fall dur-
ing Southern's spring break.
In the past this has posed a"
problem in voter turnout.

The 2005 elections coin-
cided with Southern's spring
break and less than 500 peo-
ple voted. In the next election,

SIFE prepares for Lesotho

John Shoemaker

S»fF WtrtH

While students may be go-
ing to the beach or to the Col-
orado mountains for spring
break, Southern is sending five
students and three employees
to Lesotho, Africa, for a 12-day
mission trip.

From Feb. 29 to March 9,
Southern's Students in Free
Enterprise (SIFE) team will
partner with Lerotholi Poly-
technic University's SIFE
team in Lesotho, to build three
greenhouses. This effort will
not only provide nutrition for
three families in Lesotho, but
will also allow the families to
sell the excess vegetables to
make a profit. According to
SIFE documents, 26 percent
of Lesotho is malnourished
and HIV/ AIDS are rampant.

Chris Mateo, a senior public
relations major, is one of the
students going on the trip.

"I hope this project doesn't
just end with three families,
but we continue to teach more
families to grow their own
crops and sell their extras to
help with the malnutrition of
the country," Mateo said.

SIFE launched a fundrais-
ing effort in December to raise
the $18,000 needed for the
trip. The cost included airfare,
transportation and other sup-
plies necessary for the entre-

preneurial endeavor. Friends,
families, students and em-
ployees of Southern pitched in
to help with the cause. In two
months, more than $20,000
was raised.

"God helped make this
project a success by provid-
ing the funding needed," said
Alex Mihai, a master's student
in business administration. "I
believe it is his will for us to
make an impact."

The majority of the team
has never been to Africa, and
members are excited and

"I was very nervous at first
but my nervousness has turned
into excitement," said Carrie
Harlin, director of SIFE. "I
feel like God is really involved
in this project."

Initially, the project mo-
tivated members because it
was good for their resume and
proved Southern's SIFE team
to be competitive in SIFE
competitions. Now, howev-
er, the team's passion stems
from their desire to impact the

"This particular project is
neat because it reaches out to
the international community,"
said Luther Whiting, a sopho-
more international business
management major. "SIFE's
sole purpose is to benefit not
only the community, but the
