RTS: Buses to
run on Sunday
* TRANSIT SERVICE ALSO
PLANS UF-AIRPORT ROUTE.
By DANIELLA OTALORA
Alligator Contributing Writer
No longer will Sunday be a
day of rest for those who depend
on the bus for transportation. The
Regional Transit System will begin
Sunday service starting this Fall.
Beginning Aug. 27, nine bus
routes will run from 10 a.m. to 5
p.m. on Sundays, said Theresa
Harrison, RTS marketing and com-
The Sunday service has been
a part of the Five Year Transit
Services Plan and was initially sup-
posed to start in 2009.
However, the date was pushed
up because it was emphasized by
Student Government officials.
"Student interest in providing
service changed the transit for an
entire community," Harrison said.
The Florida Department of
Transportation proposal lasts two
years and will cost $652,270. The
department will pay 50 percent of
the cost; the rest will be paid with
the UF Transportation Fee, which
every student must pay.
After two years, the department
will stop funding because it only
provides seed money for the pro-
gram. Much of the funding for RTS
comes from the state.
In February, the Gainesville City
Commission supported review-
ing the contract when the FDOT
money runs out in two years.
Students are responding posi-
tively to news of the expanded

vice is being initiated."

buses didn't run on Sundays
in a college town where a lot of
students depend on public trans-
portation," UF student Samuele

Sororities warn potential
recruits of Facebook pitfalls
Freshmen interested in joining a
sorority this Fall should untag the
Facebook pictures of their Friday
night keg stands and remove
"random play" from their lists of
interests. Sororities can view their
profiles before meeting their pro-
spective new members.
Sorority chapters are more
likely to avoid potential new
members who are representing
themselves on Facebook.com
through references to alcohol,
drugs and promiscuity, in order to
avoid headaches in the future, said
Anthony M. Crenshaw, assistant
director of the UF Office of Sorority
and Fraternity Affairs.
"I would have to admit I would
probably change some things on
my profile if I thought sororities
were going to use it as judgment,"
said Kasey Stone, a UF freshman.
Stone said that if girls knew
that sororities were going to look
at their Facebook profiles, most of
them would change their profile to
make it look more acceptable.
"Unforturiately some people's
first interaction with a chapter is
their Facebook profile, and some-
times a picture of you wasted isn't
demonstrating good character,"

By MELISSA THOMPSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
When Arthur Portnoy bought his
10th air conditioner, he said he knew
it was time to move out.
The UF junior and Alpha Epsilon
Pi Fraternity president said he
added the 10 broken air condition-
ers to a laundry list of expensive
maintenance projects plaguing the
fraternity's nearly 50-year-old house
from August to May.
But Portnoy said he hopes
maintenance problems will become
history in August 2007, when the
brothers of Alpha Epsilon Pi move
into their brand-new, 16,000-square-
foot fraternal palace.
Alpha Epsilon Pi is one of four
UF Greek organizations that have
begun or are planning housing
projects from 2006 to 2007, in what
Chris Bullins, director of the Office
of Sorority and Fraternity Affairs,
said is the biggest Greek-housing
boom in nearly five decades.
Alpha Epsilon Pi will demolish
its old house on 14 Fraternity Row
before Fall classes start in August.
The fraternity plans to build the
estimated $2.1 million house on the
existing lot by August 2007.
Construction on Delta Delta
Delta Sorority's estimated $5.5 mil-
lion house began in May. The esti-
mated 24,000-square-foot residence,
which will house about 72 members,
is scheduled for completion by sum-
The Kappa Kappa Gamma
Sorority house began construction
that will add space to its common
and living areas in January and
should end work in September.
Kappa Sigma Fraternity bought
two properties dose to Sorority Row,
on 1120 SW Ninth St., and plans to
build its house by August 2007.
Of the about 5,023 members in
UF's Greek community, about 1,372
were reported staying in chapter
housing during Fall and Summer
terms, said Anthony Crenshaw,
assistant director of the Office of
Sorority and Fraternity Affairs.
Bullins said many houses are in
good shape, but older residences,
such as" Alpha Epsilon Pi's, became
too problematic to repair.
"I would say most of the houses
are 35 to 50 years old," he said.
"We're very excited about the reno-
vations and construction."
Alpha Epsilon Pi
Portnoy, a member of Alpha
Epsilon Pi since 2004, said he thinks
construction is part of a trend that
will revitalize the image of the Greek
community at UF.
"The biggest problem, at least
on Frat Row, is some houses are an
eyesore," Portnoy said. "The houses
feed into peoples' perceptions that
we are party animals. That's defi-
nitely not the men we are."
From Aug. 20 to Aug. 25, Alpha
Epsilon Pi will host its recruitment
activities and socials on land across
from its old house on Fraternity
Row, he said.
"It doesn't matter what build-
ing or what plot of land we recruit
from," he said. "We will still con-
tinue to recruit the same quality men
we always have."
Portnoy said the new house
will feature 44 single bedrooms, a
catering kitchen, a large porch and a
brick facade that blends in with UF's
He said Alpha Epsilon Pi's na-
tional chapter partnered with an
"umbrella organization" of finance,
construction andmanagement com-
panies that will oversee the house's
construction and maintenance.
Portnoy added that he will miss
the camaraderie of eating dinners in
the chapter house while the fraterni-
ty's 96 brothers live in apartments
and houses around Gainesville for
"We want it to be a place where
the men of AEPi are proud to bring
their parents, proud to bring their
girlfriends and where the men of
Alpha Epsilon Pi are proud to bring
their children back to," he said.

Members of Delta Delta Delta

Architects and property direc-
tors from the sorority's national
chapter spent nearly a year planning
a design for the house that would
complement UF's existing architec-
ture, Hurlbutt said.
An increase in chapter member-
ship, required maintenance and
flooding caused the sorority's na-
tional chapter to decide to rebuild,
He said the chapter, which has
about 190 members, had reached
a size where it wanted a larger and
more modem facility.
Construction on the house is
being financed by the sorority's
national headquarters. The soror-
ity will conduct rush activities from
Georgia Seagle Hall, he said.
While they work on the project,
Huffman and Hurlbutt agreed they
will be mindful of their goal to build
a beautiful and safe sorority house.
"We really have the important
feeling that for the next 50 years
people are going to know what we
did here," Huffman said.

Nina DeJong, a UF senior and

renovations on her sorority house at

downstairs, Bullins said. The second
floor of the house was gutted, and
the living space will be redistrib-
uted, he said.
DeJong, who said she could not
comment about the details of the
project, said she cannot wait to live
in the house.
"We're happy just for ourselves
to have a nice place to live in," she
said. "We really wanted to have our
living quarters spruced up."
About 30 sisters lived in the
Kappa Alpha house on 5A Fraternity
Row during the Spring semester, she
"It was convenient being on cam-
pus," she said. "I appreciated hav-
ing a new route to walk home to."
Although DeJong said her sisters
knew the housing arrangement was
short-term, she said they missed
their chapter house.
"It wasn't home to us," she said.
"We missed having our own fum-
ture and our kitchen."
The sorority will hold its recruit-
ment activities on the first floor of
their chapter house, Bullins said.
Although the project will not be fin-
ished until September, construction
will be limited to the second floor
during recruitment, he said.
Andrea Williamson, a UF sopho-
more and second-year member, said
she thinks the construction will posi-
tively influence recruitment.
"It will-be a little nicer and defi-
nitely make a better impression for
the girls who are rushing," she said.
During the next several months,
Kappa Sigma Fraternity will con-
tinue to work on plans for its first
chapter house in four years, said
Ryan Merkel, the chapter's vice
"This is a labor of love for every-
one involved," he said. "We've been
working hard to prepare for this."
The fraternity's first chapter
house was built in the late '90s
and was demolished in 2002, he
said. Merkel said fraternity mem-
bers moved out of the Sigma Nu
Fraternity house on 21 W. Fraternity
Row when their lease ended in
Spring. He said Sigma Nu will re-
turn to UF and move back into its
house this Fall.
Merkel said he was sad to leave
the many memories he shared with
his brothers in the Sigma Nu house.
"We would take a plastic tarp
and make a slip 'n' slide on the front
lawn," he said. "We would invite
girls over and just have a lot of fun
on a hot day."
After raising membership to
about 1-17 brothers, Kappa Sigma
bought two pieces of land dose to
Sorority Row, on 1120 SW Ninth
Road, he said.
"Sorority Row, I feel, is a very
nice part of Gainesville," Merkel
said. "I think the guys are excited
In about 10 months, he said
Kappa Sigma has raised about
$828,000 toward their $2 million
goal for the house.
"It's been a personal experience
because we have many current
brothers contacting alumni and
speaking with brothers from the '40s
and '50s," he said.
The house will feature suite-style
rooms similar to those of the Hume
Hall complex on campus, he said.
The 22,000-square-foot residence
will house 46 brothers, Merkel
Merkel said he hopes construc-
tion on the house will begin before
August, and the project should be
complete by August 2007.
Merkel said Kappa Sigma will
conduct its recruitment activities
from Lake Alice Field on Museum
Road. "The brothers are really ex-
cited arid that's what drives a good
rush," he said.

Starbucks brings java to Hub
By MARION RAMIREZ
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF students will see another construction zone
fence come down in the Spring, when the.renovated
The central campus building is scheduled to open
on Feb. 13, UF officials said.
The estimated $8 million renovation will make
the Hub the new home for the International Center,
Academic Technology offices and group study areas
that will include walk-up Internet access stations,
wireless Internet access, videoconferencing suites
and a Starbucks, said Bahar Armaghani, the Hub
The 72,000-square-foot project, which began last
June, is on schedule, she said.
The funds from the renovation come from the
International Center, Academic Technology, the UF
administration and students' tuition.
In 2004, UF received about $13 million from the
Capital Improvement Trust Fund, which is used to
pay for new and improved student facilities -and
is made up of student tuition from past years, said
Robert W. Miller, associate vice president for finance
About $2 million will come from the tuition-fund-
ed pool for student space in the Hub, Armaghani
said. A proposal for the revamped Hub's student
space to be a 24-hour study area is still in the works,
"It would be really cool if there was a 24-hour
Internet cafe," said Gabrielle Ferro, a UF economics
junior. "It would be even more convenient for stu-
dents whose Internet connection goes down and they
need to write a paper due the next day."
The International Center, which provides services
for international students and manages the universi-
ty's study abroad programs, will take up about half
of the Hub's first floor, said Dennis Jett, the center's
The center, now located in both Grinter and
Peabody halls, needs more office space. The center
is limited and is unable to add more staff to provide
international services, he said.
Moving to the Hub will give the International
Center a more central location on campus, allowing
the center to better serve students and faculty, Jett
With all the space in the Intemet cafe, Jett hopes
the area will provide more interaction between inter-
"The new Hub can provide a hang-
out space, allowing students to work

national students and American students, he said.
. Academic Technology, which includes the UF
Computing Help Desk, is currently located on the
fifth floor of the Computer Science and Engineering
Building. Academic Technology will have offices on
the entire second floor of the newly renovated Hub,
Academic Technology is a large organization that
has services distributed all over campus. Bringing its
services to the Hub will free up much-needed space
for academic use, allowing the department to expand
its program, Fedro S. Zazueta, director of the Office of
Academic Technology, wrote in an e-mail.
At the Hub, students will find a storefront area
where many of the services provided by Academic
Technology can be found at one location.
A Quiznos Express at the Hub Food Court is
scheduled to open by the Fall.
Built in 1950, the Hub will keep its original exte-
rior appearance. The newly renovated Hub will also
be considered "green," meaning the building will be
energy-efficient and recyclable materials will be used
in the project.

UF pageant contestant sets sights on Florida title
By LAUREN WILSMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer
The spotlight will shine on
Florida beauty' this Saturday, as
dozens of women compete for the
Miss Florida USA 2007 crown and
a chance to represent the state at the
Miss USA pageant.
But only one of those women
is actually from Florida the
University of Florida, that is.
Chelsea Donovan, a 22-year-
old interior design senior from
Longwood, holds the title of Miss
North Central Florida USA 2007.
As a title holder, Donovan
was automatically qualified for
the Miss Florida pageant at the
Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa in
"I could not believe that I-won
Miss North Central Florida," she
said with a smile. "I have competed
in three preliminary pageants this
year and cannot tell you how great it
feels to work so hard for something
and know that you have improved
yourself to achieve that goal."
Ever since she was a little girl, she
has dreamed of winning the title of
Miss Florida USA, Donovan said.
"Now I finally have the chance,"
Pageant contestants will be
judged in three equally weighted
categories: personality, swimsuit
and evening gown.
The personality portion consists
of an interview with seven judges.
Each contestant will enter a room,
give a minute-long introduction
speech and answer several im-
"The interview is the most nerve-
racking part of the competition be-
cause it is the only time the judges
can see your true personality,"
UF senior Courtney Edwards has
been friends with Donovan for three

son that opens
-- 'r her mouth and
: wins people over
f. Edwards said.
Donovan "She'll have peo-
ple rooting for
her in this pageant because they'll
be able to tell she's very real."
Donovan's interior design ex-
perience secured her an internship
at Nordstrom in the store's visual
planning and merchandising de-
Her eye for fashion, color and
style inspired her to design her pale-
yellow. evening gown, with help
from a seamstress.
"As a designer and a pageant
contestant, you are putting yourself
out there to be judged," she said.
"You learn to take criticism with a
grain of salt."
At age 3, Donovan won her first
title, Little Miss Altamonte Springs.
But her mother soon put a stop
to the pageants until she felt her
daughter was old enough to make
her own decisions about competing.
Donovan made that decision as a
high school junior. Of the eight pag-
eants she has entered, she placed in
two and won the title in three.
"Competing and/or winning
pageants opens up so many doors,
but it's ultimately up to each indi-
vidual as to how far they want to
take it," Donovan said. "Aside from
self-confidence and friends that are
gained, you also become more in-
volved with your community and
If Donovan wins, she plans to
take a year off to prepare for the 2007
Miss USA pageant before attending
a fashion-design school.
Donovan said her parents, five
sisters and brother are her biggest
fans and will be in the audience.
"My entire family is constantly
cheering me on. My dad is my own

Summer is a time for travel.
Many students take the opportunity to traverse the globe,
from Africa to Asia to Europe. And two weeks ago, four
Student Government officials took advantage of student
money for a quick trip up to Washington, D.C., in order to
promote UF at the nation's capital.
We at the Alligator don't have that opportunity. Most of
our travel is between the newsroom and the nearest bar.
But that certainly won't stop us from journeying back
across some of the news highlights from the past few weeks.
So sit down, buckle up and remember that your seat cushion
may be used as a flotation device as we take you to a magical
place that we like to call.:.
Darts & Laurels
We start off by dropping a straight-thugging-doesn't-
necessarily-mean-busting-caps DART to Algemod Lanier
Washington, better known as Plies.
On July 2, the up-and-coming Tampa rapper, known for
his eloquently titled song "Tell Dem Crackers Dat," was per-
forming at local nightclub 238 West. At about 1:45 a.m., club
managers cut off his microphone to allow Louisiana rapper
Lil' Boosie to take the stage.
And then, pandemonium.
Instead of taking the subtle hint to get offstage, Plies and
his posse whipped out their gats and proceeded to open fire
on the clubgoers.
Yes, you read that correctly. They fired loaded weapons
into the teeming crowd at 238 West.
According to the Gainesville Police, Plies and his posse
then hightailed it out to their Buick LaCrosse, where police on
horseback surrounded them and politely suggested that they
drop their weapons and step out of the vehicle.
By the time the smoke cleared, at least six shots had been
fired and five people had been shot, although thankfully none
were critically wounded.
Whie providing an entertaining story, we think that, in
general, it's bad policy and bad manners to shoot people who
pay money to see your performance.
Maybe by the next time Plies performs in, say, 15 to 20
- he will have learned to take it easy.
But that is apparently a lesson that Congress could learn as
well. Sometimes it's best to just look the other way, especially
when it comes to victimless crimes, but apparently nobody on
Capitol Hill got the message.
And so we offer a loopholes-make-the-world-go-round
DART to the U.S. House of Representatives for passing a bill
that would seriously restrict online gambling. The bill works
by banning the payment of online wagers via credit cards.
That's bad news for many on the Alligator staff, who may
have to resort to satisfying their gambling habits by throwing
dice in the alley behind our University Avenue office.
But, our fixation with online poker aside, we have trouble
justifying the new restrictions.
To start with, the online gambling community is huge. We
don't like imagining the untold millions of dollars it would
cost to effectively enforce the bill. Call us old-fashioned, but
we like to think that the money could be better spent on
health care, education or body armor for the troops but then
again, we could be wrong.
On the subject of gambling, we toss a hilarity-doesn't-re-
quire-high-fame LAUREL to Florida Blue Key for the some-
what-risky choice of comic Jim Gaffigan as the headliner for
this year's Gator Growl.
Gaffigan, perhaps the whitest man in America, is a rela-
tively unknown comic, who often opens his acts by admitting,
"Don't worry, I haven't heard of me either."
But we think that's a good thing. Gator Growl used to be
a sort-of legendary gig for comedians on the way up. After
all, we booked Jerry Seinfeld, Dave Chapelle and Dane Cook
when they were barely making a blip on the national radar.
And after some of the disastrous headliners of recent years,
it'll be good to see Blue Key return to that standard.

No simple solutions for North Korea
ike any good story, the unfolding narrative of the
recent North Korean provocation is woven with
many characters and subplots an action thriller
complete with mystery, intrigue and dramatic suspense.
On the afternoon of the Fourth of July, North Korea initi-
ated a series of seven missile test-launches over the Sea of
Six of the missiles were short and medium-range rockets
potentially capable of reaching as far as Western Europe. The
fifth missile launched, the Taepodong-2, raises the greatest
concern for Americans, as it would be able (when function-
ing correctly) to target cities on our own soil.
And now it would seem that our previously cavalier
president has traded in his old gunslinging ways for a mild-
er, more cautious demeanor in dealing with North Korea.
President Bush's mantra during this past week has been
intentionally deferential as he chants, "We want to solve all
problems diplomatically. That's our first choice."
The reality of the situation is this: U.S. think tanks have
developed four thematic approaches for dealing with for
the current situation in North Korea (as summarized from
Engaging in a first-strike military attack, most likely
resulting in full-scale war and mass devastation in both
countries, as well as entanglement with other nations who
have stakes in the issue.
Imposing severe economic sanctions by means of a UN
resolution cutting off trade with North Korea, freezing their
currency and discontinuing humanitarian aid essentially
punishing the nation until its government capitulates and
dismantles its nuclear arms development program.
Significantly increasing humanitarian aid (in the form
of food, resources, raw materials) and guaranteeing North
Korea's security, in exchange for a firm commitment to the
complete dissolution of their nuclear program.

Speaking Out could enter the business of selling
nuclear arms to rogue nations or or-
ganizations. A nuclear-armed North
Korea could also destabilize the region, causing a feverish
arms race among neighboring nations.
It appears that the United States, in collaboration with the
United Nations and the other four members in the six-party
talks, have opted to prescribe economic sanctions against
But the situation is not nearly as crystal-cear as the media
For example, we must take into account that both Russia
and China supply weapons technology to North Korea. We
cannot forget that North Korea has been previously aggres-
sive toward Japan for many years and that their relations are
already strained. It is also of no small consequence that China
is America's third-largest trading partner.
And South Korea is involuntarily attached at the hip to
this entire debacle. Truly, there is no simple cure all.
Here is my take on all of this: I believe (as naive and
elementary as my hypothesis may be) that Kim Jong 11 is
desperately clamoring for the world's attention. By launch-
ing the missiles, Kim Jong Il essentially bought himself some
media exposure and his nation some recognition as a poten-
tially significant player on the world stage.
The truth is that North Korea is for all intents and pur-
poses a failed state an isolated nation that exists under
perpetually desperate economic conditions and whose
people are poor and starving
I submit the idea that Kim Jong n is going to milk his 15
minutes of glory for all it'sworth and that he will eventually
concede to the demands of the world for denuclearization.
Humanitarian aid will be resumed and our efforts redoubled,
and we will continue to work toward a world of democracy
and universal freedom. At least, that is my sincerest hope.

Alligator oversimplifies the minimum wage
Editor: There goes the Alligator's editorial page
again! Armed with "basic" economic theory, it blasts
those liberals for their minimum wage increases.
Every time someone tries to raise the minimum
wage, my ears are bombarded by those people cit-
ing "basic economic truth." I kept hearing predic-
tions of layoffs and stunted economic growth. None
of this materialized. In fact, studies by the Economic
Policy Institute show that after the wage increase.in
1996-97, the low-wage labor sector did better than
it had in years.
I enjoyed the editorial's application of simplified
economics. It is more complex. Take into account
inflation, and you see a minimum wage that needs
to be raised. The minimum wage's value is 30 per-
cent lower in 2006 than it was in 1980. It hasn't been
increased in 9 years.
If anything, a wage increase would help the
economy. The low-income people who are paid
minimum wage spend rather than save money.

more. When more money is spent it helps the

For homeless, hurricanes mean shelter challenge
* SCHOOLS, CHURCHES OPEN
DOORS IN TIMES OF DISASTER.
By ALEX TIEGEN
Kathryn Brown, who has been homeless
since her husband died last July, has two
tents in which she can take shelter during
this year's hurricane season.
But what she's really concerned about is
the safety of Ozetta, the 10-month-old dog
she adopted last October.
Gainesville's emergency shelters do not
admit animals, and Brown does not want
to make Ozetta weather the storms alone, a
problem other people with pets share.
"They're not going to leave the animals,"
Brown said. "Maybe some can. I won't."
The city's homeless shelters can take in
more people than usual during hurricanes
or other emergencies, said Jon DeCarmine,
the director of homeless services for the
Alachua County Housing Authority. But
he added that an estimated 500 homeless
people might have to find other shelters
this hurricane season.
Two of Gainesville's main homeless
shelters are St. Francis House and the
Salvation Army. Neither of these shelters
have enough space to accommodate all the'
city's homeless in an emergency.
St. Francis House, which is located in
downtown Gainesville, usually takes in
about 35 people a night. During emergen-
cies such as hurricanes, the shelter can
accept an extra 65 people, said executive
director Kent Vann.
In the past, homeless people have also
used emergency shelters available to the
general Gainesville community or taken
refuge in public buildings. Schools, church-
es, the downtown library and other loca-
tions will open their doors to the homeless
and anyone else seeking shelter in a storm,
Beth O'Grady, coordinator of the
Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless
and Hungry, said homeless people and
people with special needs sometimes feel
uncomfortable in public shelters.
"Generally they feel more comfortable
in a place where they can be with their own
community," O'Grady said.
Alachua County Commissioner Rodney
Long said Gainesville is lucky, because
residents don't face some of the dangers
encountered by coastal communities.
However, he said homeless people who
stay in the woods or in the open during
storms are subject to "great" danger.
"If the phone lines go down and we
can't get emergency assistance to them,
they're putting themselves in harm's way,"
He said he doesn't recall any deaths or
injuries reported among the homeless dur-
ing last year's hurricane season but was
"willing to bet" there were people who did
not heed hurricane warnings.
Homeless people who don't have pro-
tection from the elements need to be careful
about the flying debris that can pose a dan-
ger in hurricane season, DeCarmine said.
"They're not just problems if you are
homeless; they're threats to your life," he
DeCarmine said Gainesville's homeless
population faces a crisis situation year-
round because of the city's severe weather
patterns. The city could develop more
resources for the homeless in emergency
situations, he said, but the ultimate goal is
to find housing for homeless people.
"With each and every passing hurricane,
it just illuminates the need for more hous-
ing," DeCarmine said.
The homeless usually are not allowed to
bring carts or bikes inside shelters during
emergencies, and their possessions can be
stolen or lost.
"The hurricane brings you down to the
lowest common denominator of what your
needs are," DeCarmine said. "It's just a
matter of whether you have someplace to
Larry Neal, a homeless man whose job in
Buffalo, N.Y., was "sent overseas," arrived
in Gainesville last week. He said he would
not know what to do if St. Francis House
and the Salvation Army reached capacity
during a hurricane or large storm.
"The force of Mother Nature, it's got so
much power behind it," he said. "It could
kill you. And you'd just be out here in the
streets nowhere to go, no one to help
you. That's not fair."
When she wasn't outside or in a shelter
last hurricane season, Myrtle Belflower,
a homeless woman, took refuge in the
Downtown Community Plaza's old bath-
rooms. A falling pole struck and injured her
friend last year during a hurricane.
DeCarmine said news of possible shelter
spreads quickly among the homeless com-
"No homeless person really will let
another homeless person fall into harm's
way," he said.

UF: Dinosaur body
heat rose with size
* SOME DINOSAURS MAY
HAVE HAD WARM BLOOD.
By KIRI WALTON
Alligator Contributing Writer
All dinosaurs may not have
been created equal, according to
a recent study led by UF research-
Larger dinosaurs were much
warmer than smaller ones, re-
searchers found, meaning that
some dinosaurs may not fit the
standards for modem reptiles.
While smaller dinosaurs' tem-
peratures were close to those of
modem reptiles, larger ones had
temperatures similar to those of
today's birds and mammals.
As dinosaurs grew in size, their
body temperatures "increased
by about five degrees Fahrenheit
for species weighing about 661
pounds as adults and nearly 36
degrees for those reaching about
27 tons," UF researcher James
Gillooly said in a press release.
Because reptiles are cold-
blooded animals, their internal
body temperatures depend on
surrounding environmental tem-
But mammals and birds, which
are warm-blooded, can regulate
their own body temperatures in-
Larger dinosaurs were rela-
tively more active than reptiles
of today, said Andrew Allen,
a researcher for the National
Center for Ecological Analysis and
Synthesis who collaborated with
UF on the project.
"While the largest dinosaurs
may not have been running
around as fast as in 'Jurassic Park,'
they certainly were very active
given their extreme size," he said
in the press release, referring to the
cloned dinosaurs of the 1993 film.
Gillooly, who is also an as-
sistant zoology professor at UF,
found that the Tyrannosaurus rex
probably had a body temperature
around just 91 de-'
UF grees Fahrenheit
lower than the
normal human temperature of 98.6
Gillooly explained that deter-
mining the creatures' tempera-
tures was a bit like solving a math
By analyzing measurements
of annual growth rings found in
dinosaur bones, researchers were
able to estimate development rates
and body size at full adulthood.
Using these rates, Gillooly and his
team plugged the values into an
equation they created to calculate
dinosaur body temperature.
The research suggests that a
dinosaur's body temperature can
determine its maximum size, he
"This simple little equation has
turned out, to be tremendously
useful to understanding the bio-
logical time clock," Gillooly said
in the release.
Sunday rides to begin
RTS, from page 1
A new bus route, No. 25, was intended to begin this year,
but Harrison said that students changed the priority of RTS
toward Sunday service instead. Route 25 will run from the UF
campus to the Gainesville Regional Airport, Harrison said.
Within the Five Year Transit Services Plan, six more routes
are listed; but their future remains uncertain. Bus assignments
are based on need and available resources, Harrison said.

Alcohol may have led to death

Alcohol likely played a part in the drowning of a

cording to the medical examiner who performed the
Michael John Solich, 22, drowned in the river's
4-foot waters after a day of fishing at the Koreshan
State Historic Site in southwest Florida, the examiner
said. The drowning was first reported in Tuesday's
Dr. Robert Pfalzgraf, deputy chief medical examiner
of the District 21 Medical Examiner's Office, said he
would be surprised if Solich's blood alcohol level was
not over the legal limit.
"I smelled alcohol in his blood," he said. "But I just
don't know how high it's going to be."
Although the autopsy was completed Saturday, the
blood tests to determine factors such as alcohol level
will take a few weeks to analyze.
Pfalzgraf said police told him the site was covered
in beer containers.
He said he thinks Solich may have jumped into
the river and hit his head on its muddy bottom. Even
though the mud would have cushioned Solich from
any visible skin injuries, much the same way a football
player's helmet offers protection, a concussion may
have disoriented him,
"He dove in and just never came
back up," he said.
Josef Sandtner, 81, who lives near
the state park, called 911 when he
saw Solich facedown in the mud
and heard calls for help, according

and cheek, which he attributed to the hit. But he said
there was no evidence of a struggle.

to comment on Solich's blood alcohol level until a full

Nim Sum plays solely for enjoyment

swoops through the front porch.
- Nobody seems to notice.
An angelic Greek boy in a blue half-zip
sweater sits in the lotus position, strumming
an acoustic guitar. He's surrounded by three
girls with greasy hair and bad posture.

Ska band makes TV appearance 'I I"
* Ten 13 Concept competes
for chance to win $1 million
By JENNIFER PFAFF
They've got guitars. They've
got fans. They've got trumpets,
trombones, pink Converse sneak-
ers and a mohawk or two.
Apparently, America thinks
they've also got talent.
After performing on NBC's
"America's Got Talent" at the end
of June, local pop-ska band Ten
13 Concept, which features six
musicians from the Gainesville
and Orlando areas, will return
to Los Angeles to compete in
the semifinals of the show for $1
"It's just a great experience ev-
ery time we go out there, so we're
looking forward to it again," said
Joe Loffredo, the band's rhythm
guitarist and lead vocalist.
The band will fly to California
on Wednesday to perform for the
second time on the summer series
show, produced by "American
Idol's" Simon Cowell, that allows
people from all over the United
States to vie for $1 million in a
Acts range from singing,
.dancing and playing musical in-
struments to sword swallowing,
performing magic acts and even
The show's judges, actor
David Hasselhoff, singer Brandy
Norwood and former newspaper
editor Piers Morgan, critique
each performance and determine
whether a contestant remains in
the running for the money. TV
viewers vote online at -NBC's
Web site for their favorite acts to
decide the overall winner, who
leaves with $1 million at the end
of the season;
Ten 13 Concept was invited
to audition for "America's Got
Talent" after recognition from
Orlando's Florida Music Festival
on May 19.
A few weeks later, the band
was flown to California for six
days and competed on the show

against other acts, all from the
East Coast, performing a short-
ened, two-minute version of their
song, "Three Weeks."
"Who would have thought a
small-town band could repre-
sent Gainesville? The entire East
Coast?" Loffredo said.
The episode of "America's Got
Talent" featuring Ten 13 Concept
aired June 28, but NBC only
played a brief clip of the band's
performance, along with those of
other acts, at the end of the show
in order to limit the episode to
Immediately after the episode
ended, the network displayed
full-length video clips on its
Web site throughout the next
day of performances from the
show, including ones like Ten
13 Concept that weren't aired in
"That was three seconds of op-
portunity," Loffredo said.
Ten 13 Concept recently
became sponsored by musical
instrument retailer Sam Ash
Music, which helps support the
band members with tours and
performances. However, the
self-managed band books its own
tours and relies heavily on its
free profile on MySpace.com for
"It's tough because we're not
a big name," said lead guitarist
and vocalist Chris Torres. "We
want to spread our music."
Should Ten 13 Concept make
it past this semifinals round, the
band will compete in the finals
episode, expected to air some-
time in August.
If they win the entire contest,
the band members agreed to use
the money to further their career
as a band.
"We were born performers,"
Loffredo said. "That's what we're
born to do. That's all we want to
Loffredo's brother and fellow
band member, Mike, said he was
excited for the opportunity to
perform and to show the nation
who Ten 13 Concept is.
"We all play from our hearts,
but we were playing for every-
body in this hometown right
here," he said. "Things are falling
info place right now."
Ten 13 Concept will appear on
NBC's "America's Got Talent"
again later this month.

But while Japan's commercials star quite
a few untraditional spokespeople, it's not
uncommon to catch a familiar ad or two,
imported from America.
However, such commercials dub the
American star's voice with that of a
Japanese actor. So try not to seem too sur-
prised if Tiger Woods sounds vaguely like a
50-year-old Japanese man.
American stars have been known to
shoot commercials in Japan, with the most
well-known of these being the spots shot
with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

commercial then cuts to the back of the

New Dashboard Confessional album disappoints fans
By KEN PENG
Oh Chris Carrabba, where have you gone?
I'm of course, referring to the diminutive emo
boy (and Florida's own) better known as
Dashboard Confessional, whose 2000 release,
"The Swiss Army Romance," forever changed
the emo/indie music scene.
Carrabba's heartfelt lyrics, stripped-down
writing style, and willingness to wear his
heart on his sleeve influenced many, includ-
But with Carrabba's latest release, "Dusk &
Summer," it's sad to see he has lost his touch.
Gone are the days of sing-along concerts
where the audience sang more than he did.
Gone are the heart felt lyrics that every teen
in America could relate to. In
its place lays another generic
.- pop-punk CD that blends in
amongst the Fall Out Boys and
Panic! At The Discos. On his
latest release, Carrabba's lyrics
feel detached and indifferent. His songs have
become predictable, cliche and a far cry from
gems such as "Hands Down" and "The Places
You Have Come To Fear The Most" on his first
two full-length releases.
For any Dashboard Confessional fans
who enjoyed the acoustic guitar that made
Carrabba famous, I'm sorry to say that you're
out of luck.
But for anyone who enjoys the mindless
and generic genre that is pop punk, this just
might be the CD for you.

"I played football when I was
younger, and I grew up with
Florida football," he said.
The match was somewhat
expected from members in the
"I'm not surprised," Telep said.
"I think he's liked Florida for a
long time. Florida did their home-
work on him, he's ready to go and
they're ready to have him."
Tyus said UF's national cham-
pionship wasn't a major factor in
his decision, but it helped.
"Donovan makes players bet-
ter," he said. "Some guys [like
Joakim Noah and Al Horford]
weren't ranked really high com-
ing out of high school. Coach
Donovan made them excellent

"It's going to be tough," he
said. "They reached the top in
only a few years. They won a
national championship in their
sophomore year, but I'm not try-
ing to play like them."
While his individuality will
distinguish him from his team-
mates, Telep expects Tyus to blend
in with the Gators seamlessly.
"I think he definitely fits in,"
he said. "Even with Joakim and
Al, there was a period of adjust-
ment. He's a high-major player,
and he's coming in with the ex-
pectation of playing right away
and playing well."
Tyus isn't concerned about
anything except showcasing

posedly non-scathing. And he is handing out
fliers around campus, a move that is likely to
impjss the 5 percent of students who humor
the flier hander-outer so as to not make him or
her feel bad, before depositing that flier into
the nearest street drain.
Still, Huddleston is not stopping there
- he has a petition rolling. But with just 100
signatures so far, his goal of 20,000 is, perhaps,
Huddleston will not be denied, however.
So he has launched a Facebook group to build
the groundswell of support. There were more
than 240 members late Wednesday. Only one
problem Noah had not accepted his invita-
"He probably hasn't checked Facebook
that often," Huddleston reasoned.
Uh huh. Or maybe the Flamboyant One
still maintains a sense of perspective. A
perspective on ideas like, "Maybe a student
shouldn't become a deity before he is drafted
by the NBA."
Don't expect an assumption like that to
deter Huddleston's campaign trail this fall.
"We plan on a full-scale attack similar, I
would say, in financial scope to the 2004 presi-
dential election," he said.
"We plan on getting more voters out than
the election, though."
And if Huddleston succeeds?
"Then the sky's the limit," he said. "We
could have Chris Leak Avenue."

Gaski leaves UF infield bare
BASE, from page 27
Gaski represents the latest of several
UF players to leave or possibly leave
- the team.
Second baseman Adam Davis
(Cleveland) and catcher Brian
Jeroloman (Toronto) have signed pro
contracts while Matt LaPorta and
David Cash are currently mulling con-
tracts of their own.
And while Gaski batted just .227 in
47 games as a sophomore, he was a ser-
viceable player whom the Gators could
always rely on.
1 "The infield is pretty
Gators vacant right now,"
Baseball McArthur said. "But
Matt was obviously a
good friend of mine,
and if that decision is going to benefit
him, then I wish him the best."

UF grants third baseman release
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
Despite losing guard Doneal Mack from the 2006 re-
cruiting class for academic reasons last Friday, UF men's
basketball coach Billy Donovan hasn't lost any momentum
convincing young players to join the Gators' program.
Power forward Alex Tyus (Harmony Community
School, Cincinnati), a consensus top-50 2007 recruit, ver-
bally committed to UF after his performance in the Reebok
After witnessing the 6-foot-8 200-pounder average 12.3
points and 4.4 rebounds despite a fractured finger, UF
coach Billy Donovan offered him a scholar-

* MATT GASKI COULD PLAY
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Seemingly frustrated by the in-
ability to start every day, third base-
man and junior-to-be Matt Gaski
has been granted a release from UF.
Gaski played positional hop-
scotch in the infield last season,
which was not what the defensive-
minded player had in mind.
"I was surprised, but I also
wasn't," starting third baseman
Brandon McArthur said of the
news. "Last year, he wasn't able to
play in an everyday spot, and for
him coming to college, that's what
you want to do."
McArthur, who lived at the same
apartment complex as Gaski, no-
ticed there was something amiss at
the beginning of summer.
"I asked him if he was going to
live in the same apartment complex
next year, and he was kind of like,
'Well, I don't know,' because he
was probably thinking of leaving,"
McArthur said. "He had probably
already made his decision."
Gaski is playing for the Hemdon
Braves of the Clark C. Griffith sum-
mer baseball league. In 26 games,
Gaski is batting .242 with 14 runs
and 11 RBI. His defense has been
uncharacteristically shaky, as he has
logged 10 errors.
It is reported that Gaski is seri-
ously considering transferring to
UNC-Greensboro, where his father,
UF grad wonders: Gale Lemerand Drive why not Joakim Noah Road?
Dear brethren, brothers, sis-
ters, faithful and friends
Sunday is God's day,
but Monday through Saturday,
thou shall worship Joakim Noah.
Thou shall place Gainesville
palms at his Swedamerifrench feet.
Thou shall touch his robe or
his Rastafarian tam, whichever is
most easily accessible (we're guess-
ing the robe for the 7-foot-and-un-
der populace) and genuflect.
Thou shall preach Noah's scrip-
ture to any pedestrian who will
listen. Chant: "The Gator boys are
hot," and "This is better than sex!"
to the masses.
And of course, thou shall bap-
tize believers with Noah Water, a
rare, sacred fluid found in puddles
amid the Ararat Mountains.
Think the world's 4,200 religions
need one more? Good, because
so does UF grad student Zach
Huddleston, host of "Late Night
Gainesville with Zach" (don't wor-
ry, we haven't heard of it either),
is lobbying students, faculty, resi-
dents, politicians and anybody who
will listen to change UF's Museum
Road to Joakim Noah Road.
So while Huddleston does not
suggest we attend mass for Noah,
he does insist we walk on pave-
ment that bears his name.

Anyway, Huddleston doesn't
understand why Museum Road is
named after a museum that is not
on Museum Road.
Formerly located on Museum
Road, the Florida Museum of
Natural History has since relocated
to Powell Hall. So Huddleston has
a point here.
But why Noah, of all people?
"He could drive down his own
street," Huddleston said. "I don't
know if Gale Lemerand is still
alive, but I don't think he goes up
and down his [Drive]."

Miami releases linebacker
* WILLIE WILLIAMS MADE NATIONAL
HEADLINES AS A UF RECRUIT.
Miami linebacker Willie Williams, the most
controversial recruit in school history, kept his
promise to behave off the field. But his surpris-
ing on-the-field struggles likely have ended his
Miani Athletic Director Paul Dee said
Tuesday night that Williams has asked to be re-
leased from his scholarship. He said Miami has
granted Williams permission to speak v'ith other-
In spring 2004, Williams was the subject of a
fierce recruiting battle by several state schools.
Considered one of the top high school pros-
pects in the nation, Williams made headlines dur-
ing the recruiting process when police accused
him of grabbing a UF student against her will and
tampering with three fire extinguishers during
his visit to the university.
Miami won the battle to admit a player whose
numerous arrests made his signing the subject of
His final line in Coral Gables, however, will
read 17 tackles and zero starts.
"Whenever you have a situation where some-
one isn't meeting their own expectations about
whether they're getting appropriate playing time,
they sometimes have doubt and sometimes want
to be sure they are given the opportunity to play,"
"Sometimes that requires considering a trans-
fer. I don't think it's a surprise, but I'm a little

Miami Athletic Director
In a statement released by the school, Miami
coach Larry Coker said, "Whatever is best for
Willie, I will be in favor of."
Dee said Williams, who could not be reached
for comment Tuesday, will not be allowed to
transfer to a rival Atlantic Coast Conference
Williams provided Miami with a list of poten-
tial schools, all Division I-A, and Miami approved
all but.one of the choices, said Dee.
If he transfers to a I-A school, Williams will
have to sit out a year.
Williams had no known behavioral problems
at Miami, but a torn knee ligament forced him to
sit out the 2004 season.
"He's done everything he said he would do,"
