Brandon Fenty, Kyle Wilkerson, and David Wirt. In moments the ambulance arrived on the scene, whisking the Rawleigh to Bradley Memorial hospital. There, specialists determined that a bone in her face had become fractured from the incident. Doctors became concerned that bone fragments could be stuck near her eye or brain, though thankfully, that turned out not to be the case. A nurse wasted no time in calling the student’s mother and father and insisted that they depart right away because their daughter could be going into surgery any minute. Rawleigh later reported that her parents immediately prayed and felt a “peace” about the situation. Nevertheless, they left Goldsboro, North Carolina at approximately 1:40AM with a ten hour drive ahead of them. From Bradley Memorial, Rawleigh was sent by ambulance to Erlanger in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Heather was released soon after arrival and was transported with her friends back to her Lee dormitory by her resident assistant and resident director. They arrived at 5:15AM. In adition to a few abrasions, a slightly swollen cheekbone and a black eye, doctors believe that there may be some sinus damage. As a result, they have put her on antibiotics and pain medication. The bone, Rawleigh believes, may heal on its own, without the need for further surgery. Two days later Rawleigh returned to Chattanooga to see a plastic surgeon regarding her face. Rawleigh claims she has no memory of the fall, saying she only remembers waking up to find paramedics surrounding her at the scene. “I was questioning everything I thought was real when I came to,” she says. Her friends later told Rawleigh that they asked her questions like “what day of the week is it?” and “do you have any homework tonight?” but she did not know. Supposedly she doesn’t even recall the first ride to the hospital. Today, the Lee student is in much

Sophomore rushed to Chattanooga following fall
Harrison Keely hkeely00@leeu.edu Lee sophomore Heather Rawleigh is blessed to be alive and recovering after slipping Saturday night while running to her dorm from O’Bannon-Bowdle complex. While rushing past Storms Hall with her friend Terri Jones, Rawleigh suddenly slipped and slid across the asphalt, supposedly leaving a trail of blood from her face. In just a few seconds the AtkinsEllis resident blacked out and remained unconscious for nearly five minutes. That left Jones alone in the dark, rain, and cold to seek help. Without a cellular phone, she found herself screaming out to anyone, any possible person who could come and help out. Fortunately, a few young men from Storms witnessed the fall, noticed that Rawleigh was not getting up, and called for an ambulance. A few more of Rawleigh’s friends arrived just in time- including

prayer from family and friends. Her family arrived safely, overseeing her recovery and taking her out to dinner. Rawleigh says they told her they would stay as long as they need to. Concerning how the ordeal changed her physical appearance, Rawleigh stated, “Luckily it’s not that bad... I don’t look mauled or anything.”

The “Facebook Fifteen”
We live in a digital universe. One where groups are everywhere and to be committed means just signing up. When did clubs become so unclubish? When Facebook arrived.

Our editors have chosen the best Lee Facebook groups, judging popularity, humor, and creativity against usefulness and content. Narrowing fifteen from fifteenhundred can be a daunting task, but we proudly present our picks:
Ohioans Fraternal Order of Ninjas Does your roommate talk to you while they’re sleeping? Bowdle Boys are Really, Really Ridiculously Good Looking I go to Lee and am not looking for a spouse! Shocking, I know!

Creator: Mike Sothard About: Why we picked it: Face it. Everyone at Lee is from Ohio. The rest of us can just pretend we’re cool. The group currently boasts 96 proud members, although we know there are a few million more out there.

Creator: Mike Daniels About: Are you on the third floor of O’Bannon? Maybe even just super cool and friends with cats on that floor. Do you totally flipout and get super pumped for no apparent reason? Then you might be cut of the same cloth as the Fraternal Order of Ninjas. Why we picked it: The Ninja Vs. Pirate war has consumed the minds and hearts of so many on campus. What else is there to get excited about in Cleveland, Tennessee?

Creator: Susan Bookout About: Not everyone here is in a rush to get married or looking for their MRS degree. Why we picked it: As depressing as the news is to Dr. Conn and the rest of the staff here, we have to admit that it’s true. Sure, campus is filled with young people looking for their soul-mate, but please realize that it’s not everyone!

Creator: Jordan Dingess About: For those who stay awake at night because your roommate won’t quit talking in there sleep!!!! Why we picked it: As odd as it is, it happens. We don’t know exactly what Mr. Dingess was thinking when he created this group, but it would be nice to find out who his roommate is. Creator: Julie Maxey About: This group is for all the men of Bowdle and the ladies who love them! Why we picked it: Our studies show this one to be true. Nine out of ten Bowdle guys really are really, really ridiculously good looking. It sounds like the admissions department has good taste.

Group pictures are from their respective Facebook group pages. Lee University campus photos are property of The Lee Headlines. The “No Picture Available” photograph is from Google image search.

Wouldn’t it be Great if Dr. Conn Shaved His Mustache?

Driving all the way to Lee University!!

SLC

I’ve Been on a Date to Waffle House

Lovers of Creative Movement

Creator: Emily Cox Creator: Ben Stiefel About: How cool would it be if Dr. Conn shaved his mustache?! Maybe that should be addressed at the next “Ask The President” day. Why we picked it: Dr. Conn is a president who will most certainly fill Lee’s record books. Following accomplishments like new construction, a building enrollment, and a nice bit of facial hair, students have determined that it’s time for a change. About: Driving to Lee University. Why we picked it: The dull and obvious description catches nearly everyone off guard and half of campus always loves to brag about their misfortune, therefore, we’re sure everyone’s glad to have this group. “I’ve now driven back and forth between Cleveland and Colorado 6 times, and trust me that’s enough,” states student Amanda Hilgenfeld on the message board. Creator: Dustin Adkison About: The SLC is the student leadership council at Lee University. They serve the campus through servant leadership. Anyone interested in helping out with campus events can join. Meetings are every Wed. night at 8:30 after A2 chapel at The House. Why we picked it: We’ve long been impressed with this growing group. Chairperson Daniel Tidwell keeps members well-informed of upcoming events.

Creator: Christian Hall About: Have you ever taken anyone, or been taken on a date to Waffle House? If so, then this is the group for you! Why we picked it: It’s sad, if nothing else, that this group has even 25 members. In the message board, students post stories about their experiences and tips on how to survive the tragedy. What really caught us off guard was the honesty of all of the members and especially the creator. Who else would admit what they have??

Creator: Jill Hammond About: For those that enjoy shakin’ their tailfeathers and want to do so without their school telling them they aren’t allowed... Or just for those that enjoy gettin’ their groove on... Why we picked it: There are always rebels. And we love it when rebels rebel digitally. Who doesn’t know that our professors dance in their offices?

I Want to be an Officer

Lee Online Prayer Team

I Attend Campus Events for the Free Food!

I’ve Made More Than Ten Groups on Facebook

Just Another Dr. Conn Group

About: Ever dreamed of being an officer on a facebook group? We have too! All you have to do is join our group and we’ll make you an officer within 24 hours! Why we picked it: Groups on Facebook usually include a list of officers. Although this one may not have the largest number of officers, it certainly has the concept right.

About: Have a prayer request? Join the Lee Online Prayer Team and tell us how we can pray for you and your needs. While you’re here, take a look at other posted prayer requests and spend time with God for someone else. Why we picked it: There are times when we just need prayer. Those times just seem to pop up more often near the end of a semester. But regardless of when we need it, the Lee Online Prayer Team is always there.

About: Ever been starving in your dorm room when you suddenly realized you could just go to a meeting, party, or event for free food? The truly skilled can even get by without a meal plan! Why we picked it: After blowing all of their money on books, many students don’t have a dime to spend on food. This group shows that it is possible to survive a cheap life. Plus, you won’t want to miss the comments on the message board, always detailing where to dine next!

About: If you’ve created more than ten groups, then you’re invited to join this exclusive club. Take a breather while you think up your next group... Why we picked it: Most people create one or two groups and then go on with their lives and get married. A select few, on the other hand, create more Facebook groups than there are people to join them. We’re glad they now have an exclusive club.

About: This group is for everyone ELSE on campus who is not in a Dr. Conn group already. Why we picked it: With nearly ten Dr. Conn groups and counting, the time was ripe for this group to come along. Here, members are encouraged to share stories of the first moment they met the university president. Dr. Conn gets a heavy dose of celebrity treatment here, but the students seem to like it.

What’s next on campus?
What needs to be built next is probably a parking lot, I think so that we’ll have more places to put our vehicles. But what I think is going to be built next is .... a new dorm like Bowdle and O’Bannon. -Amber Mear What I think they’re going to build next is another dorm like O’Bannon and Bowdle but I think they really need to make a new Conn Center because it’s basically cracking and sinking, so.... if they don’t want us all to die and it to collapse on us, then I think that’s what they need to build. -Jessica Hodson A girl’s dorm the size of O’Bannon would be nice. -Mandi Read I think an on-campus zoo would make a great addition to Lee University campus. -Philip Bazikian I would think that a couple of the dorms need to be redone so that they are up to standard and not falling apart anymore and that wireless should be .... campus wide. -Angela Cromer

Effects Plot Acting Morals

Poetry
Underneath the Browning Bridge -Oliver WilliamsUnderneath the Browning Bridge, a creek flows toward the sea, former raindrops flying past, searching to be free.

Fun with Dick and Jane proves to be just that.
! Ever dreamed of living a wonderful life, complete with a beautiful suburban home, a bilingual child, and a good job? That’s the life of Dick (Jim Carrey) and Jane (Tea Leoni) in this new remake of the 1977 comedy by the same title. Harrison Keely hkeely00@leeu.edu ! The film opens with Dick on his way to work at a large corporation. Surprisingly, he is given a rather large promotion to become a Vice President in the company. Jane quits her job to be with her son and the two begin to prepare for a lifestyle of luxury. Unfortunately, what Dick does not know is that he has been set up by employees to take the fall when the company goes under. ! Suddenly the company goes out of business and Dick and Jane are left without work, all of their money in the fallen corporation’s stock, and a rapidly decreasing land value. In one of the more humorous sequences of the movie, Dick and Jane both fight to find new jobs, none of which work out. ! Facing eviction and bankruptcy, Dick and Jane both turn to a life of crime to gain back what they lost. The hold-ups begin at service stations, progress to coffee shops, and then, eventually, banks. To spice things up a bit, the couple dresses as various famed duos to disguise their identities throughout the robberies. ! Fun with Dick and Jane is no Sunday School film and contains a series lack of morals. No one gets caught by police and everyone seems completely overtaken by greed. ! If you are looking for an exciting, funfilled comedy that will teach you nothing, on the other hand, then this may be the perfect movie. Jim Carrey provides quite a few laugh-out-loud moments and a few circumstances in the plot may remind you of the reality we live in. ! Overall, the film is enjoyable, though ultimately lacking in the morals department.

That Browning Bridge, an aging arch, across a simple stream, is lonely for some reason, like a boy without a dream. Surrounded by the tallest trees, and broken by the vengeful tears, the Browning Bridge stays on its knees, yet few expect the bridge in years. The Browning Bridge had always been, a symbol of the world within, standing strong throughout the years, and conquering those deepest fears. In retrospect, how can it be, that such a bridge would fall with time? Why can not the people see, the part they take in such a crime? No remnant, of a memory, a creek flows to the sea, former raindrops flying past, searching to be free.

Directed by Dean Parisot. Starring: Jim Carrey and Tea Leoni. Runtime: 90 minutes. Rated PG-13 for brief language, some sexual humor, and occasional drug references.

The Lee Headlines looks forward to expanding their poetry section throughout the semester. Please e-mail your submissions to leeheadlines@yahoo.com.

Missed class or chapel? What if it wasn’t a problem?
Lee could provide students with podcasts of lectures, interviews, classes, sporting events, and chapels through Apple’s new iTunes U service.

There’s an online education revolution
Harrison Keely hkeely00@leeu.edu For the past few months, Apple Computer has been working with Stanford University in California to provide digital content from lectures, interviews, classes, and speeches through an experimental service for students on iTunes. The experiment was more than a success. According to Stanford, over 500 tracks are available currently through the service and an average of 15,000 tracks were downloaded per week throughout the semester. ! Since that time, Apple has opened up the doors for other institutions to become a part of the online education revolution and the service has been welcomed with open arms by several schools including Duke University, Drexel University’s

School of Education, and the University of Michigan School of Ministry. ! The service, dubbed “iTunes U,” is quite revolutionary. Apple hosts the service free of charge and allows professors and technology gurus alike to easily update content for students. All of the audio and video content is free and easily searchable by all students 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The software is just as easy to use and navigate as the iTunes Music Store. Once the content is downloaded, Lee students could easily sync their iPods to computers to take all of the educational information on the go with them. ! Where would all of the digital audio and video for Lee University’s site come from? Lee could easily record chapel audio for iTunes U using the equipment already in place at the Conn and Dixon

centers or even upload the video from select services. As far as classes go, students, with the permission of professors, could easily use a laptop, iPod, or other recording device to capture the lectures and lessons for later uploading online. Professors can easily edit their digital lectures and determine what gets posted and students can send files related to the coursework to professors for the site. ! iTunes U would be an amazing way for students to get the information they need from classes if they happen to be absent, but it would provide an even better way to archive favorite Chapel sermons. ! I encourage the Lee administration to take a close look at this new technology as a way to benefit students in their educational and spiritual growth. Go online for more information at: www.apple.com/education/solutions/itunes_u/ !

A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR:
! Hi! Congratulations on holding the premier issue of The Lee Headlines in your hands. You may be wondering what void we’re attempting to fill by producing a second newspaper on campus. That’s what I’m here to explain. ! The “Headlines” staff appreciates and enjoys the work of The Lee Clarion, but we feel there is a need for a different kind of paper on campus. Here is what the The Lee Headlines has to offer: • Free delivery directly to your campus mailbox. You’ll never miss an issue! • An open opinion and voice. Feel free to write what you’d like to publish either at our website or in print without being held back by the Lee administration. • A full-featured website, complete with dozens of color photographs, important links, and extra content updated nearly everyday! • An advertisement-free paper that comes out nearly once every week to keep you informed with the top stories! ! Overall, we’re excited about what’s to come because we know we can succeed in bringing Lee’s campus an exciting alternative! May God bless us all here at Lee University!

How we can use your help....
In Resources
! In realizing our goal of providing Lee University with an up-to-date newspaper, we have discovered that certain key things are needed. Things such as money, paper, printers, ink, staples, etc. If you have any materials you would like to donate or if you have interest in making a financial contribution, please contact us at hkeely@gmail.com. Remember, we can always use your prayer, as we plan to keep this a free-of-charge, advertisement-free newspaper.

Also, if your skills are in the proofreading or photography departments, we will gladly accept you as part of the team.

In Distribution
! Word cannot be read and pictures cannot be seen if the paper is not distributed and the online content not uploaded. We’re looking for a few good hands who are willing to take The Lee Headlines anywhere on campus for readers to consume. ! We’re excited about our online content, and, although we only have a Blogger page at this time, we have our eyes open for a great web page designer who wouldn’t mind spending some time with us to design and build an amazing new website for us.
