Fair use rationale for File:UMfalcon.jpg
File:UMfalcon.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
The coordinates need the following fixes:
- The map coordinates in the article (32° 21′ 58.21″ N, 86° 17′ 44.64″ W
32.36617, -86.295733) appear to be those of Alabama State University in Montgomery rather than University of Montevallo. The correct coordinates are closer to 33.10378, -86.86497. See Terraserver photo for verification. I'd fix it myself but I've never done map coordinate editing. Trilobitealive (talk) 04:15, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

NPOV - plagiarized breathless rah rah press release
In the The James Wylie Shepherd Observatory section, the writing seems to have been lifted from a press release. Let me see if I can find the original. Hang on a moment... yes, I thought so:
Darn, let's see who mistakenly added this plagiarized stuff. Just wait a bit... okay unregistered IP which geolocates to a cable ISP within 5 miles of Montevallo University.
Therefore removing copied material.
