 Two former Berry juniors, along with their mother, are being held in the Marion County Jail after being charged with exploiting a 91-year-old Berry high school alumnus for money, some of which was used to  pay the students’ tuition.According to the Associated Press, the bond for sisters Kelsy “Critter” Dawsey, 19, and Patricia “Buddy” Dawsey, 22, was set at $50,000 on  Nov. 18. Their mother, Kathryn “Kit” Dawsey, 54, is being held without  bond. Kelsy, Patricia and Kathryn Dawsey are all facing charges of theft and exploitation of a disabled adult, Bob Webb. Kathryn Dawsey is facing another charge of theft by taking, Trebor Randle, assistant special agent in charge with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI), said.Marion County Sheriff Derrell  Neal told The Journal, a newspaper in Buena Vista, Ga., that Kathryn Dawsey befriended Bob Webb of Buena Vista and convinced him to grant her power of attorney. Randle said the Dawseys have
 been involved with Webb’s nances
for over a year, although the GBI investigation is focusing on events within the past year.The GBI began investigating the allegations in July after being contacted by the Marion County
Sheriff’s Ofce. The investigation
has been ongoing since then, and the case remains “an open act of investigation,” Randle said.A court order issued in September restricted Kathryn Dawsey from
using Webb’s nances. However,
transactions continued to be made from Webb’s account, Randle said.Authorities executed a search warrant at Kathryn Dawsey’s Pike County home on Nov. 8. She was arrested and charged at that time, Danny Jackson, special agent in charge with GBI, told the Rome  News-Tribune.According to the Rome News-Tribune, Kelsy Dawsey was arrested on Nov. 10 after she turned herself
into the Pike County Sheriff’s Ofce.
Patricia Dawsey was arrested the next day after she turned herself in at
the Marion County Sheriff’s Ofce.
Kelsy and Patricia Dawsey are no longer enrolled at Berry, Jeanne Mathews, Berry’s assistant vice  president of public relations and marketing, said.Dale Benik, a relative of Webb, said the family is “very concerned” about the situation but declined further comment.

Viking Fusion to release free app for iPhone and Android phones
November 21, 2013
vol. 104, #11
The new Viking Fusion smart phone application will be available for free download starting Friday.The app, available for iPhones with iOS7 and Android phones, will contain nearly all the same content the website currently contains. Viking Fusion advisor
Stephen Hames said
the project originally  began in September 2012 when a committee of communication professors
examined the benets of
having an app and the  process for creating one, including costs. The actual designing and  programming of the app  began in spring of 2013. After much deliberation and searching for a developer, Berry alumni David Moskovitz (07) and Isaac Jessup (09) were hired to
create the app. Hames said
Jessup was a good part of the team because he was one of the students who helped create the original Fusion website during his time at Berry, so he was familiar with the mission and goals of the organization.
Hames said one of the
motives for building a mobile app was that it was  practical.“We are keeping up with technological demands,”
Hames said. “More and
more people are going mobile…so we need to  provide a mobile platform to keep up with the times.”Bob Frank, associate  professor of communication and department chair, was a member of the development
committee. He said the idea
for an app came from another committee member: Brian Carroll, associate professor of communication. “The motivation was a realization triggered by Brian Carroll’s reading and thinking that by 2014 the majority of people will be getting their information from a mobile site,” Frank said.Carroll said creating a mobile app was a smart move.“The desktop is declining; smartphones are now the dominant interface to get information,” Carroll said. “We needed to make it easier for people to access Fusion.”Frank said most of the app development  process was done via video conferences during which Moskovitz and Jessup would display the current state of the application and the committee would comment on what they liked and what they wanted changed. The app development hit a rough patch when the Apple app development system crashed, delaying the  process for about a month,  but Frank said the team worked through it. One of the biggest concerns the committee had was the cost of working with different operating systems.“Whatever you develop for a phone, you have to develop for both Android and iOS7, both of which are constantly updating,” Carroll said. Carroll said the new app will be good for the department and the school as a whole.“If these trends are true, we don’t want to
wake up and nd ourselves
marginalized,” Carroll said. “ We want to keep ourselves mainstream. We want as many people to see our students’ work as possible.”
VIKING FUSION IS RELEASING a new smartphone app which will be available on Friday.

Academic Support Center’s Van Cise to retire next month
After 12 years serving as director of the Academic Support Center (ASC), Martha Van Cise is set to retire at the end of 2013.In keeping with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Berry will
immediately ll the position.
Two people will be hired as her successors to lead the ASC for the next academic year, Van Cise said. Interviews for the position will take place after Thanksgiving break.Van Cise said she currently has 169 clients, plus 18 students with concussions with whom she also works.“It’s a big job, and it’s going to take two people to do it,” Van Cise said.Van Cise has worked at Berry since 1984, teaching English 095, 101 and 102. She started working in the ASC in fall 2001.
The hall leading to her ofce has
 pictures and news clippings of her  past clients, Berry students she has assisted over the past 12 years. Van Cise said she has worked with well over 500 students throughout her career with the ASC. Her task, and the purpose of the ASC, is to assist those with special needs, that includes learning, psychological and  physical disabilities, so that they can achieve their full potential.“It’s frustrating at times,” Van Cise said. “But it’s rewarding to see students who wouldn’t be able to be successful without accommodations  become successful.” Van Cise discussed a notable student she helped to overcome obstacles and achieve his full  potential during his years at Berry. This student has since graduated and done well in his career.“John Hall was one of my clients
who graduated about four or ve
years ago,” Van Cise said, referring to a photograph of him. “He is a quadriplegic. [Recently], he was appointed by the governor to be on the Governor’s Rehabilitation Board. [Now], he works at the CDC. John could not have gotten his education without accommodations. John has been very successful, and I feel very fortunate in being a part of it.”Van Cise said that for these students, academic accommodations include extra time or an alternative
text to help level the playing eld
with their peers.“Without those, they are at a disadvantage in the classroom,” Van Cise said. “It’s not about getting them something they don’t deserve or disadvantaging other students. It allows them to demonstrate what they know. And without those, it’s
difcult for them to do that.”
Van Cise said she truly loves her  job and will miss her work and the students dearly.“I’ll miss the kids,” Van Cise said. “I wouldn’t be here if I did not enjoy student contact. I’ll miss knowing that I’m helping someone.”While Van Cise will be missing her time at the Academic Support Center, others said they will miss her and her passion for the program.Senior Brandi Tyson, who has worked as a receptionist for the ASC and a volunteer tutor, said her time working with Van Cise at the ASC was a highlight of her career at Berry.“Ever since I began working there my sophomore year, I’ve
loved walking into the ofce every day because [Van Cise] has a spitre
 personality and is one of the most honest and true people I know,” Tyson said. “Her bold personality makes her an advocate for her students, so they can receive their  proper accommodations. Ms. Van Cise is more than my boss. She’s a close friend and role model.”Kim Sippel, secretary for the ASC, has worked with Van Cise since 2011, and she said she has enjoyed working with Van Cise.“There have been so many great things that [Van Cise] has done for this program. I will miss working for her and with her,” Sippel said.Van Cise’s last day of work will  be Dec. 31. She said her plans for the future after retirement are still undetermined. “[I plan to do] whatever I want to do, when I want to do it,” Van Cise said.
