New students eat up, reflect on summer


* THOUSANDS OF NEW STU-
DENTS WILL ARRIVE SOON.

By OCTAVIAN CANTILLI
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's newest students con-
cluded the final week of Summer
classes with a university-spon-
sored barbecue Wednesday night,
taking time to down hamburgers,
hot dogs, corn on the cob and pie.
Between bites, freshmen looked
back on the first six weeks of
their college careers and ahead
to the bustle and crowds of the
Fall semester.
During the next two weeks,
thousands more freshman -
more than 6,000 will join their
counterparts on campus.
At the Broward Dining Center
barbecue, students milled back
and forth to food stations, balanc-
ing plates and crowding toward
tables. Outside, dining center
employees served up summer-
time favorites from the grill.
"We wanted to give them


a great opportunity to meet
new students and make their
experience a little better," said
Kathleen Jodoin, a dining center
employee.
Freshman Louis Holzberg
was surprised by the university's
friendly atmosphere during the
mellow Summer B term.
"At home it seemed more seg-
regated, whereas here it seems
more like union," Holzberg said,
referring to his warm reception
at UF.
During his first day on cam-
pus, Holzberg and some friends
were hanging out at a bus stop
when a police officer stopped
and asked them what they were
doing, he said. When Holzberg
replied that he and his friends
were waiting for the bus, the
officer drove away. The catch:
Buses weren't running yet. But
Holzberg said he knew that.
Brittaney Kessler, another
freshman, said meeting people
was no problem.

Money talks for leaders


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

Each year, UF administrators coax
state and federal lawmakers into grant-
ing millions of dollars to the university
- and many of those UF leaders are just
as generous with their own wallets.
During the
U F three most re-
Administration cent elections
including
2006 races some of the university's
top officials have funneled thousands of
dollars from their own pockets toward
political campaigns and causes.
Administrators have sent their mon-
ey to dozens of candidates, but most of
the big spenders who sit on UF's Board
of Trustees, the university's highest
governing body, donate to Republican


candidates or efforts.
Seven of the university's 13 trustees
have given money to GOP candidates
and organizations, according to federal
campaign finance records.
Some trustees have offered finan-
cial support to the Democratic Party,
but most of those board members
also donated smaller sums than their
Republican counterparts.
UF trustee Carlos Alfonso, who has
served as a lobbyist as well as the head
of a Tampa architectural firm, has do-
nated just under $60,000 to Republican
efforts since 2001.
His gifts have helped everyone from
President Bush who received $2,000
of Alfonso's money toward his re-elec-
tion campaign to the Republican
National Committee.

Corners delayed by dispute


By MORGAN LEIBY
Alligator Contributing Writer

More than a year has passed since de-
molition began, but construction on the
$180 million dollar University Corners
project is being further delayed by a
lease dispute with Starbucks.
"Time is certainly of the essence,"
said Alex Patton, a University Corners
representative, insisting that his compa-'
ny is determined to get the project back
on schedule despite the disagreement.
University Corers is planned as a
mixed-use development of businesses
and upscale residential units.
.Increasing construction costs, Patton
said, are a major incentive to complete
,the development, situated on the cor-
ner of Northwest 13th Street and West
University Avenue, on time.
Progress has been slowed repeatedly
from problems wilh demolition and ar-
guments over leases.
.Demolishing a church on the prop-


erty had caused the most recent delay
before the Starbucks issue arose.
University Corners decided to recycle
the church's parts and debris instead of
discarding them a lengthy process.
S"The church is completed but
Starbucks is an issue now," Patton said.
"Time is certainly of the es-
sence."
Alex Patton
University Corners representative

No Starbucks or University Corners
employees would comment on specif-
ics of the dispute. Patton said only that
Starbucks is declining to abandon its
lease on the University Corners site.
It is another dispute in a series of
conflicts between the real estate firm
and tenants over leases.
The company struck deals with many
tenants of Gator Plaza, which is slated

ON CAMPUS
Visa problems worry Iranian
students studying in U.S.
Saed Alizamir, an Iranian indus-
trial engineering doctorate student
at UF, is worried that he won't see
his family for at least four years.
Alizamir's concerns followed
Saturday news reports that more
than 40 Iranian professionals who
had valid U.S. entry-visas were de-
ported from several U.S. airports
Friday.
The Iranian professionals were
traveling to Santa Clara, Calif.,
to participate in a reunion of the
graduates of Sharif University of
Technology, a university in Iran
that is also known as the "MIT of
Iran." They spent huge amounts
of money and time to go to a U.S.
embassy in a third country to
get a visa, bought the expensive
overseas tickets and endured the
long trip, which sometimes takes
30 hours, said Alizamir, who is a
Sharif University alum himself.
"Now that they are deported,
I'm not sure whether my family
would risk coming to the U.S. to
see me even if they get a visa," he
said.
Because of the historically
strained relations between the
U.S. and Iranian governments, the
two countries do not have embas-
sies on each other's land. Thus,
Iranians have to travel to a third
country to get a visa.
Alizamir, who was refused
the U.S. visa in Turkey and the
United Arab Emirates three times,
finally obtained his visa from the
U.S. embassy in Cyprus. He had
been admitted to three American
universities.
Alizamir said he- misses his
family, but he will not risk travel-
ing to Iran, because he is afraid he
will not get a visa to return.
He said if the U.S. government's
policy is not to allow Iranians in the
U.S., it would be better to instruct
the universities not to consider
Iranian applicants to begin with.
"I don't know anything about
politics, but I understand there are
problems between the two coun-
tries' governments," he said. "But
none of the Iranian students has

ever caused any problems inside
the U.S."
Debra Anderson, coordinator
of UF's International Student
Services, said it is risky for
Iranian students in the U.S. to
leave the country to visit their
families back home.
She said International Student
Services provides the students
with all forms of paperwork that
the U.S. embassies might ask for,
but there is no guarantee that
they would get the visa.
Iranian students, like any
other students, bring a "human
element" to the American educa-
tional system, she said.

CLARIFICATION

A July 20 report about UF
athletes and Facebook.com
relied almost entirely on the


social networking Web site for its
information. In order to provide a
more complete depiction of these
athletes and their off-field activi-
ties, we should have taken steps to
interview the athletes themselves.
Unless otherwise noted, material
from the report was taken directly
from Facebook. Some of the photo-
graphs and information contained
in the story have since been re-
moved from Facebook.

Keeping a low profile


Neighbors greet Machens


By VINCENT M. MASSARO
Alligator Writer
Dan Helm had no idea the presi-
dent had moved in across the street.
"I'll have to be on my best behav-
ior," joked the UF political science
student.
UF President Bernie Machen
made a historic move to an off-cam-
pus house last month, away from
the eyes and ears of curious campus
dwellers, away from the sights and
sounds that accompany life on busy
West University Avenue.
Machen announced his plan to
move at the June meeting of the
university's Board of Trustees. UF's
governing body had to -amend
the president's contract to OK the
move.
"This job is so public, and you
need some downtime," said Chris
Machen, the president's wife and
UF's first lady "We didn't have it
over there (on campus)."
The Machens' new residence,


on the other hand,, sits on tree-
lined property on a quiet stretch of
Northwest Eighth Avenue, about a
mile from the President's Mansion
on campus.
According to Alachua County

paid $828,800 for
the two-bedroom,
three-bathroom
house. Records
state that it was
built in 1971.
Machen is the
first UF president
Machen to take up per-
manent residence
off campus in the mansion's 53-year
history.
UF spokesman Steve Orlando
said the official residence was oc-
casionally the target of late-night
harassment. Unwelcome cars would
come into the circular driveway, and
passengers would yell and throw
things.
"It's just nuts over there,"


Orlando said.
The mansion will be the site of all
"official entertaining," just as it was
in the past, President Machen wrote
in an e-mail Wednesday.
In addition, UF organizations
can sign up and use it for their own
events because he and his wife are
no longer living there, he wrote.
"This should result in even more
use of the house for university ac-
tivities," he wrote.
As for the president's new neigh-
borhood, a Gainesville real estate
agent said there's no typical hom-
eowner in the area.
Roslyn F Levy, an agent with
Coldwell Banker M.M. Parrish
Realtors, said the neighborhood's
houses were built from the 1950s to
the 1970s, and some residents are the
original owners. Other residents are
families with roots in the area.
Some nearby houses, however,
are smaller, and students may live
there, Levy said.
"It's just lovely," she said, re-
ferring to the Machen residence,
adding that it has one of the most
beautiful yards in Gainesville.


'Green' plan

for mansion
By VINCENT M. MASSARO
Alligator Writer

With the Machens out of the
President's Mansion, the house
will be made a model for en-
vironmental sustainability on
campus, said UF's first lady, one
of the home's former residents.
"We want that house to be a
house that people can relate to,"
said Chris Machen, explaining
that the mansion is old like many
houses in Gainesville. The man-
sion was built in 1953, and the
Machens moved out last month.
No longer a private residence,
the President's Home can be
renovated to become a certi-
fied Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design, or LEED,
building registered with the U.S.
Green Building Council on.the
UF campus.


Such plans are in the works,
Machen said. UF officials set a
Monday meeting to discuss the
specifics of the mansion renova-
tion.
LEED is a rating system de-
veloped by the Green Building
Council, a coalition of the na-
tion's construction leaders, who
promote environmentally sound
build-
UF wings
Administration and as-
sess the
environ-
mental sustainability of building
designs.
Machen, the wife of UF
President Bernie Machen, said
she wants people to be aware
of things they can do to work
toward sustainability
Machen, a strong advocate
for sustainability, has helped her
husband make the effort a key
part of his administration.
People should start with
something simple, such as
replacing light bulbs or using
organic paint, she said.


UF ACADEMICS

UF's largest college in less debt than originally thought


By KIM CRUTS
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences has reduced its estimated $9 mil-
lion debt to $4.8 million by reallocating
the college's cash, a CLAS official said
Wednesday.
CLAS budget director Kimberly
Browne said her office has not had an op-
portunity for an in-depth look at the cause
of the 2005-2006 fiscal year shortfall, but
the school simply spent more than it was
allocated.


"We are examining every department
and program in the college to see where
we can gain efficiencies, to determine
which programs are getting us to .Top 10
status, and find what needs investment
and what may need divestment," Browne
said.
The initial $9 million estimate included
the debt from the 2005-2006 fiscal year, the
potential debt for the 2006-2007 year if no
budget changes are made, and debts and
fees from previous years.
UF spokesman Steve Orlando said the
previous debts and fees were paid from


"If it hadn't been paid off, then $9
million would have been the debt."
Steve Orlando
UF spokesman

income from the 2005-2006 fiscal year,
leaving the college's present debt at $4.8
million.
"If it hadn't been paid off, then $9 mil-
lion would have beer the debt," Orlando
said. "But since it was paid, the debt now
stands at $4.8 million."
Browne said she expects today's meet-


ing with the Board of Governors, will help
auditors prevent future deficits.
CLAS officials must explain the debt
to the statewide board, which oversees
Florida's 11 public universities. The board
meets today at the University of Central
Florida.
"I think the meeting is to determine if
the auditors here at UF understand.how
the debt happened," she said.
Browne's office will be focusing on
more redistributions in order to mitigate
the potential $2.9 million debt for the
2006-2007 school year.

Students fund SG trip


* THREE SG OFFICIALS USED
STUDENT MONEY FOR RETREAT.

By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer

Three Student Government officials
are attending a $6,000 retreat, with all
of the money coming from student
fees.
Student Body Treasurer Ryan
Moseley, Student Senate President
Mike Patrone and Senate President
Pro-Tempore Josh Weiss are attending
the five-day getaway with other col-
lege students from across the state.
This year's retreat has been com-
pletely funded by $6,000 in Activity &
Service Fee money paid by students.
In the past, the retreat has only been
partially paid for with student money.
The Orlando retreat, known as
College Leadership Florida, concludes
today and cost $2,000 per person for
the officials to attend.
According to the retreat's Web
site, College Leadership Florida is
designed to address issues such as
Florida's public policy, leadership,
community service and technology. It
features such activities as leadership
development sessions and lectures
from numerous consultants, profes-
sional educators, and government,
business and community leaders.
Sen. Lacey Logsdon said the experi-
ence will benefit the leadership skills
of the three officials on the trip.
"I think it is important for UF to
have effective leadership for our stu-
dents, and that every now and then
those skills must be refined so we can
better represent the student body,"
Logsdon wrote in an e-mail. "I think


almost everyone in the chambers has
attended some form of leadership
conference and would agree that lead-
ership forums like College Leadership
Florida are the breeding grounds of in-
novative ideas and it is necessary that
they attend those to reach their full
capacity as elected officials."
Sen. Lauren Asher, chairwoman
of the Senate's Information &
Communications Committee, said
the retreat would be great for their
leadership, but declined to comment
on whether the trip should have been
funded with the Activity & Service
fees.
Sen.- Gavin Baker questioned the
retreat's value, point-
ing out that he does
not know what the
three officials will
be getting out of the
conference or what
they'll be giving
back to SG.
Moseley He added that he
does not feel the trip
should have been completely funded
with student money.
Baker said if a student organization
had asked SG to fund $2,000 for every
student who wanted to go to a confer-
ence, chances are the group wouldn't
receive it.
However, Baker said if they had
found the conference beneficial to
the organization and student body,
SG would agree to pay for half of the
travel expenses at the most.
"For what (SG is) paying, I hope
we'll get a good bang for our buck
here," Baker said. "It's worth more
than the entire yearly budget of some
organizations. It would buy a lot of
towel wipes for the gym."


Shands earns high marks


By JESSICA MAKRIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Being a patient at Shands at UF has never
been better, according to two recent rank-
ings.
U.S. News & World Report's America's
Best Hospitals 2006 named four of Shands'
departments among the top 50 in the nation.
Its neurology and neurosurgery department
was ranked 30th. Urology placed 35th. Its di-
gestive disorders and kidney disease depart-
ments placed 47th and 48th, respectively.
Shands HealthCare hospitals also stand
out in a national comparison of patient-
satisfaction scores taken by Professional
Research Consultants Inc. Shands at UF
scored higher than 90 percent of hospitals in
its peer group.
Edna Wells, from Tuscaloosa, Ala., said
Shands at UF is an excellent hospital.
"I'm here with my daughter," Wells said.
"She's in the ICU (Intensive Care Unit). She
had an aneurysm, and she's here for surgery.
The hospital has been so wonderful."
After she was admitted for surgery, Wells'
daughter, who is 49, began having problems
with her heart as well.
"This is so much better than a small hos-
pital. They have so many different specialists
here," Wells said. "We came in with neurol-
ogy, and then she had the heart problems,
and they just got another expert, and it was
okay. She's doing a little better today."
Angela Champagne's son was recently in
a motorcycle accident and was transferred to
Shands from South Florida. She said that the
employees in the ICU have been more than
accommodating.
"Shands has been very good, everyone


has been more than helpful," Champagne
said. "The nurses on ICU cleared out a room
that they have meetings in and fixed it up
with blankets and pillows for my husband
and me to sleep in."
Shands employees said they love work-
ing with patients at such a well-reputed
hospital.
The Shands system includes nine hospi-

Editorial
Sadly, this will be our final editorial for the Summer se-
mester. And that means it's not long until we're all back to
facing the harsh realities of college life during the regular
school year.
Instead of going out every single night, partying will have
to be confined between Thursdays and Sundays. And instead
of waking up at 2 or 3 in the afternoon, we might only be able
to sleep in until 11 a.m. or noon.
But Summer's not over yet, and we mean to make the
most of what's left.
So break out that lawn chair, slather on some SPF 30 and
throw a few last hot dogs on the grill as we bring you the
final Summer installment of our very own...


Darts & Laurels
This week, we begin by issuing a sometimes-being-presi-
dent-means-actually-doing-something DART to Student
Body President John Boyles for failing to name his pick
for interim vice president before the end of the Summer
session.
The story is a little long and complicated, so we'll briefly
recap.
Former Student Body Vice President Lydia Washington
had to resign her post in July for academic purposes. That
left a vacancy to be filled by an interim vice president until
the Fall election, when the permanent position' would be
filled via popular vote.
So Boyles set about the task of picking the interim. In
fact, it was just a scant two weeks ago that we laurelled
Boyles for opening up the candidate selection process to all
students. We applauded his attempt at inclusiveness, frail
though we thought it was at the time.
But what has happened since then?
Nothing.
The problem is that Boyles' interim pick for the spot
must be confirmed by the Student Senate. But Boyles
dragged his feet, and now the next Senate meeting won't be
until the Fall semester.
The vice president is traditionally in charge of the
Cabinet, but at a time when the Cabinet is most active at
the very beginning of the school year there'll be nobody
at the helm.
All thanks to Boyles. But we're not through with him
yet.
This week, we've decided to deliver a there-are-some-
responsibilities-that-you-just-can't-delegate DART, once
again to John Boyles.
One of Boyles' most admirable qualities during his elec-
tion was that he was a pretty ordinary guy, not associated
with special interests or political insiders just a regular
student.
That's why we were so surprised to find out that Boyles
had created a new position his very own press secretary.
From that instant on, Boyles has been totally inacces-
sible to our reporters, forcing us instead to go through his
minion, Pi Lambda Phi Fraternity and Florida Blue Key
member Matt Chamoff.
We're unsure why Boyles chose to do such a thing af-
ter all, our reporters are so warm and charming but we
think it just goes to show how incredibly out-of-touch our-
Student Body president has become. Boyles apparently no
longer feels the need to remain accountable to the students,
and that's not a good sign.
And seriously, how ridiculous is it for a Student
Government official to have his own press secretary?
But if Boyles is so intent on delegating his responsibili-
ties, maybe his next move will be to appoint someone else
to make the difficult decision of selecting an interim vice
president.
We hope Boyles can snap out of it before the Fall semes-
ter The student body needs an open, honest president, and
it's just too early for him to be plagued by this many bad
decisions.

L;: r to the Editor
Columnist distorted facts on stem cells
Editor: Talk about dishonesty. In defend-
ing President Bush's stem cell research veto
on Aug. 1, guest columnist John Bambenek
engaged in precisely the falsehoods of which
he accused Bush's detractors.
Bambenek dresses up a number of straw
men and sets them ablaze, all the while ig-
noring the real issue: The embryos in ques-
tion will either be used for research with
the potential to benefit millions of people,
or they will be discarded as medical waste.
Either option destroys these unclaimed em-
bryos, despite what Bambenek implies. Nor
did this bill permit anything like "grow-
ing embryos to harvest them for parts."
Bambenek's allegation is a scare tactic with
no basis in reality. Furthermore, his compari-
son of scientists seeking new treatments for
debilitating diseases to Nazis is both dishon-
est and morally repugnant.
Bambenek's recourse to falsehood only
serves to underscore how weak his posi-
tion is.

Disney internship is monkey business for student


Kingdom study probes rain forests


By ELENA SCURO
Alligator Contributing Writer


Lauren Bamberger works with a bunch of
monkeys- literally.
Bamberger, a UF animal sciences student,
works as the reproductive biology intern at
Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.
"I thought it would be something different
and exciting because I didn't have any zoo
animal experience or a lot of research experi-
ence," she said.
Bamberger works five days a week on one
of Animal Kingdom's ongoing research proj-
ects, Proyecto Titi (Project Tamarin): This proj-
ect was established to assist with the conserva-
tion of the cotton-top tamarin. An endangered
monkey since 1973, the cotton-top tamarin's
natural habitat is only found in the rain forests
of Colombia.
Anne Savage, the director of Proyecto Titi,
works both with the large staff at Animal


Kingdom and with the team of 10 researchers
at the Santa Catalina site in Colombia.
"The work that we d6 in Colombia is really
focused on trying to understand what the spe-
cies needs to survive in the wild," Savage said.
"Given that cotton-tops are only found in this
area, their numbers are really decreasing."
Flooding and the illegal pet trade are a
threat to the cotton-top tamarin, but deforesta-
tion proves to be the most destructive.
P.K. Raniachandran Nair, UF professor-
of agroforestry and international forestry,
estimates that about 37 million acres are defor-
ested around the world each year.
"People want to clear forests, and people
are looking for land to produce their food,"
Nair said. "It's a tropical problem. It's a world-
wide issue and a matter of great concern."
Colombia is among the top 10 countries in
terms of deforestation, with about 1,500 square
miles being deforested each year. .
Researchers for Proyecto Titi are hoping


they can not only help with the conservation
of the cotton-top tamarin but also simul-
taneously promote conservation efforts in
Colombia. One way the researchers promote
alternatives to forest destruction is by teaching
the locals how to use a more efficient way for
burning wood and cooking.
"People want to clear forests,
and people are looking for land to
produce their food. It's a tropical
problem. It's a worldwide issue
and a matter of great concern."
P.K. Ramachandran Nair
UF professor

But the cotton-top tamarin is in danger
too.
"One of the biggest challenges that we face
in Colombia is that many of these communi-
ties live below the poverty line," Savage said.
"We've been working with local communities,


trying to teach them skills that will allow them
to create a sustainable economy around con-
servation."
The locals have been selling the cotton-
top tamarin on the black market, and while
they make for poor pets, the illegal pet trade
is one of the only ways for the locals to make
an income.
Because of this, Proyecto Titi promotes
Fundacion Ecolombia, a way for locals to earn
money by producing stuffed animals by hand
to sell as souvenirs.
While Proyecto Titi and worldwide ex-
perts work on the deforestation problem,
Bamberger will continue observing the cotton-
top tamarins.
Her observations include monitoring the
female cotton-top tamarins, collecting their fe-
cal samples, running tests on them and graph-
ing the data.
Animal Kingdom hopes the studies on
their four pairs of cotton-top tamarins will
help them learn more about their natural be-
havioral biology and understand what factors
influence their reproduction.

Hackers nab gold in Vegas win


By JAMES RIGNEY
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville geeks can rejoice
now that two of their own have
secured top honors at the world's
largest annual hacker conference.
Two members of the UF
Information Technology Security
Team won the Capture the Flag
competition at Defcon 2006, which
was held earlier this week in Las
Vegas, according to a UF press
release.
UF Security Engineers Jordan
Wiens and John Sawyer were part
of the eight-member team, named
l@stPlace, that beat out hundreds
of others to qualify for the tourna-
ment.
The team was made up of seven
security professionals and one at-
torney who practices IT security as
a hobby, Sawyer said.
"We had a lead from the begin-
ning because we found a way to
automate the stealing process," he
said. "So we were stealing more


keys than anyone else the entire
competition."
Eight teams competed in the
tournament. Each was given a
server containing hidden, con-
stantly changing "keys," or series
of 32 digits, that served as "flags.
The teams scored by stealing other
servers' keys and protecting their
own. Teams could score extra
points by changing the other teams'
key digits.
The winners of each year's tour-
nament receive Black Badges that
entitle them to free admission to all
future Defcon conferences, a leather
jacket and a chance to return next
year and defend their title.
"I didn't really expect to win,"
Sawyer said.
His team had only three veter-
ans of the tournament, while some
of the competing teams-were made
up entirely of tournament veterans.
The UF team was honored
further when the competition's
organizers told the 3,000-member
crowd that 1@stPlace captured


more keys than even they thought
possible, Sawyer said.
Sawyer described the conven-
tion as "close to 7,000 computer
geeks converging on one spot in
Vegas."
Defcon was once an under-
ground hacking conference but is
now attended by security and law
enforcement professionals, includ-
ing representatives from the CIA,
FBI and Department of Defense.
It has been an annual event in
Las Vegas for 14 years, according to
its Web site.
Sawyer originally planned on
going solely for the conference but
was asked to join the team at the
last minute.
Any feelings of missing out on
the conference were washed away
once he found out his team came
out on top, he said.
"Considering I now have a
Black Badge that gets me in for the
rest of my life for free and a leather
jacket, yeah, it definitely makes up
for it," he said.


UF official resigns

Reign of robots as students show off high-tech toys


By JENNIFER NELSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Robots extinguished flames and
shot Ping-Pong balls Wednesday
afternoon as UF engineering stu-
dents showed off the high-tech
toys they built from scratch.
At the New Engineering
Building, creators from UF's
Intelligent Machines Design
Laboratory unveiled and dem-
onstrated about 30 robots with
catchy names and catchier skills.
There was Koolio, designed to
deliver cold beverages; TeleRAD,
which detects radiation levels;
and Ying and Yang, which fools
around playing tag.
Stefan Craciun, a UF electrical
engineering major, helped develop
Ying and Yang.
"About the first hundred times,
when you flip the switch they don't
work, but you feel so satisfied that
101st time, when you switch the
pair on and they do what they're
supposed to," he said.
UF electrical engineering major
Bryan Talenfeld had a practical
problem to solve: How to design a
robot to tell his color-blind grand-
father when to stop and when to
go at traffic lights.
So he developed HOMER,-
whose name is an acronym for


"Helping Others Move Easier on
Roads." The robot detects colors
and tells the, vehicle to stop on
red, go on green and speed up on
yellow.
"This class has put everything I
learned together. I'll use one thing
from one class and one from an-
other to make the 'bot," Talenfeld
said. "I think my degree is worth-
less without this class."
The university's robotics glory
was not confined to campus: A UF
team swam into first place at an
international submarine competi-
tion last weekend.
At the ninth annual
International Autonomous
Underwater Vehicle Competition,
held in San Diego, the UF team
outperformed teams from Duke
University and the Georgia
Institute of Technology to take
home the gold for the second year
in a row.
UF's submarine, the appro-
priately named SubjuGator 5,
autonomously repaired a leaky
underwater pipe to win the com-
petition.
To find the appropriate leak,
the SubjuGator team designed the
submarine's camera with a colored
lens and gave it a magenta filter.

New UF test could help reduce infant mortality rates


* RESEARCHERS TACKLED AN IN-
FECTION COMMON IN NEWBORNS.

By KELSIE WILSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Food and Drug Administration ap-
proved a new test studied by UF researchers
that could better detect one of the most corm-


mon causes of infections in newborn babies.
Group B streptococcus, a bacterium that
affects 15 to 35 percent of pregnant women, is
passed from mother to child during birth and
can cause sepsis, pneumonia, meningitis and
sometimes death.
The death rate of newborns with the in-
fection is 5 percent, said Rodney Edwards,
who led the clinical trial at UF. Edwards is


a UF assistant, professor of obstetrics and
gynecology in the College of Medicine.
"If the baby doesn't die,
UF there is a chance of long-
Research term effects such as mental
retardation," Edwards said.
All women are tested for
the presence of the bacterium between weeks
35 and 37 of their pregnancy. Women are
screened for the organism a few weeks before


birth because it takes a few days to receive re-
sults from the lab.
However, some women do not contract the
organism until after they are tested, so some
babies are still at risk for infection.
The new test allows health-care workers
to quickly screen mothers during labor. This
improves the odds that babies will receive pre-
ventive care so they willnot be infected during
delivery, according to a UF press release.

was, because I was very nervous," she
said. "But I met a lot of good friends
everywhere, in my classes and resident
hall."
Her most memorable Summer B experi-
ence occurred when she was studying on


campus and waiting for a class to start. A
homeless man, dressed in a Whataburger
uniform, asked her for money.
The man said he had nowhere to go,
that Whataburger wouldn't give him his
paycheck, that his mom had just died, that
his dad just got a pacemaker and that he
was trying to get to the hospital.

Though there were tales of meal-plan

the overall tone was light as students
prepared for their final two days of classes
and the coming intersession between the
Summer B and Fall semesters.

for demolition, but some insisted
on staying to fight for their store-
fronts.
Maui Teriyaki was the most
recent business to be forcibly
evicted, leaving Starbucks the
last one refusing to vacate.
University Corners termi-
nated Maui's lease in January
after failed negotiations, and the
matter is now being hashed out
in court.
A press release about Maui's
eviction on the University
Corners Web site quoted Frank
Darabi, managing partner of the
developers, who accused the
restaurant of trying to "hold the
project captive to their unjusti-
fied demands."
Brick Oven Pizza met with
a similar fate after attempting
to fight eviction. It was closed
by court order after filing suit
against the developers.
Starbucks is now the last lessee
obstructing the development's
progress.
Patton is optimistic about
his company's odds, despite the
delay.
"I believe there were 17 leases;
16 were resolved," he said. "We'll


be breaking ground as soon as
possible."
Henry Rabell, of Bosshardt
Realty Services Inc.'s University
Comers project team, refused to
comment on the dispute, but he
was similarly upbeat.
"The developers have told us
that they will work things out to
the satisfaction of all parties," he
said, declining to elaborate fur-
ther. "We're banking on that."
Though some of the tenants
displaced by the project fought
to stay, others willingly accepted
the terms offered to them by the
developers.
"They just told us that we had
to leave and that they'll build
us a new kitchen," said Janet
Akerson, co-owner of Burrito
Bros. Taco Co.
The restaurant abandoned its
longtime home on Northwest
13th Street, but Akerson wel-
comed the change.
"We're happy," she said. "Our
kitchen now is the size of our en-
tire old store."
She did, however, acknowl-
edge that some other businesses
haven't had such a positive ex-
perience with University Corers
developers.

- GOP benefits most from trustee donations

The GOP received $25,000 from Alfonso

September.
Alfonso could not be reached for comment
by press time;
Although UF officials donate their money
as private citizens, university trustees serve
,within the public sphere
In addition to overseeing UF policies, the 13
board members work to ensure the university's
goals are met at state and federal levels as
well.
"I think it's importantto support legisla-
tors who have the interest of the university in
their sights," said UF trustee Dianna Morgan, a
former vice president of public affairs for Walt
Disney World.
Morgan donated a total of $550 to
Republican U.S. Senate hopefuls Johnnie Byrd
and Mel Martinez in 2004. Martinez now serves
as Florida's junior senator.
Many state legislators are acquainted with
university trustees, Morgan said, and those
relationships can have a positive impact on
lawmakers' perception of UF.
"Sure, it helps when they know that we sup-
port them," she said.
The Florida Legislature, which is controlled
by Republicans, has been especially helpful to
UF in recent months.


During this year's legislative session, state
lawmakers approved eight major UF projects,
including the Institute for the Advanced Study
of Emerging Pathogens. UF President Bernie
Machen hopes the center will combat maladies
as diverse as citrus canker and avian flu.
In order to ensure the university's top pri-
orities are met, administrators must constantly
push their goals to key legislators, UF spokes-
man Steve Orlando said.
"You can't just go blindly into it and say,
'OK, this is what I want give it to me,'"
Orlando said.
UF devised a lengthy list of funding re-
quests for the upcoming year, which include a
center for sustainable energy that is estimated
to cost nearly $6 million.
Although officials donate their money to
political causes as private citizens, Morgan
said she thinks most UF trustees consider
which candidates are likely to support higher
education.
She and the other trustees meet "frequently"
with legislators to discuss policy, she said.
At Florida State University, the president
is a former member of the Legislature, which
could help FSU's interests at the Capitol.
Despite FSU's ties, "people are giving mon-
ey for a reason," said Robert Jackson, an FSU
associate professor of political science.
"What people are often trying to gain here
is a minimum access, or the knowledge that

Updates for


SFCC ahead

* RENOVATED PLANETARIUM, NEW
FOOD COURT TO OPEN.THIS FALL.

By KEN SCHWENCKE
Alligator Contributing Writer

SFCC students will encounter a few sur-
prises on the college's-main campus when
they return to classes in the Fall.
The college is gearing up to unveil its
renovated planetarium the only one in
Gainesville and open a new food court in
its cafeteria.
The updated Kika Silva Pla Planetarium,
which has been in the works for about seven
years, is tentatively scheduled to open its
doors next month as part of SFCC's 40th an-
niversary, said Curtis Jefferson, the. college's
associate vice president for academic affairs.
"It would be, in my view, a tremendous
learning resource in this institution and in the
community," said Jefferson. "There are a lot
of exciting things happening in the realm of
space exploration and science."
The project, which cost about $1 million,
will feature a new state-of-the-art digital and
opti-mechanical projection system, as well as
enhanced seating and a larger dome, Jefferson
said.
Funds for the project have largely been
due to private donations, and a federal higher
education grant facilitated by U.S. Rep. Cliff
Stearns, a Republican whose district includes
the college.
The improved planetarium will provide
support programs and resources for astron-
omy students at the college and will also be
open to the public, said Bennye Alligood, as-
sociate vice president for college relations.
SFCC will also team up with kindergarten
through 12th-grade schools to provide educa-
tional programs.
"The plans are still to do wonderful things
for the community," said Alligood, "We are
the community's college that's what we're
here for."
The new food court, scheduled to open this
Fall, will feature a Domino's Pizza, Subway
and Junior's Restaurant.


STUDENT LIFE

UF students face storage shortage


By RAY COLEMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Each August, students move in from
out of town, return from vacation or
change dwellings.
Each August, these students run into
the problem of not being able to find a
place to keep their belongings during the
move.
"Not being able to find a storage unit
is an initiation in Gainesville," said Gayle
Whitley, an employee at Interstate Mini
Storage, 2707 SW 40th Blvd.
During this vagabond month, the tem-
porarily displaced are forced to become
creative with storing their goods.
UF student Tabitha Vigliotti and UF
alumna Amy Wessel stored their furniture
in a rented U-Haul for the three days they
were between houses.


UF student Neil Barth made the 30-
minute drive to Alachua Self Storage for
both of his moves.
"You could put your name on a thou-
sand waiting lists and never be called
back,"'he said.
The busiest time of the year for
Gainesville's self-storage industry is April
through August, Whitley said.
Parents start calling for reservations
at Interstate Mini Storage beginning in
March, she explained. Students begin
shortly thereafter. The storage units are
rented as fast as possible, Whitley said.
By April, Interstate Mini Storage receives
between 75 and 125 calls each day.
With 830 units, Interstate Mini Storage
is one of the largest storage units in
Gainesville, but it usually finds itself full
by May 1.
"More students are staying in town


during summer now than ever before,"
Whitley said. "So renting in summer is
becoming a little bit more of a transitional
thing."
Because UF students must attend at
least one Summer term during their col-
lege careers, the rush for spaces from stu-
dents changing dwellings in late summer
is steadily growing, Whitley said. The few
units that become available are awarded
to the lucky winners on the waiting list
- but most customers can't be helped,
Whitley said.
"If you are going to be out of school in
April, then it would be best to call by late
February or March 1," Whitley said.
For those students who procrastinated
in their search for storage space or were
denied the privilege of reservations, a car
crammed full of clothes and boxes left in
parents' homes.


Meteors could mean stellar light show


Best sites beyond Gainesville


By MORGAN LEIBY
Alligator Contributing Writer


A stellar light show will grace the
night sky this weekend as the Summer
term closes for UF students.
The Perseid meteor shower an
annual phenomenon that takes place
between mid-July and mid-August -
peaks after midnight early Saturday,
the day after Summer B and C classes
end.
Gainesville residents may miss out,
however, unless they venture outside
city limits to see the spectacle.
"Meteor showers are best viewed
under dark country skies," said Bill
Helms, president of the Alachua
Astronomy Club.
The light pollution created by the
city would likely make it difficult to
see the shower, Helms said.
Astronomy graduate student Scott
Fleming agreed.
You might see "a few bright ones"
from campus, he said, but visibility
will probably be too poor. Regardless,
the Perseids represent city-dwellers'
best chance of seeing a shower.


"There are about a dozen major
meteor showers each year, but the
Perseids are the brightest," UF astron-
omy professor Charles Telesco said.
Meteor showers, Telesco said, occur
when the Earth's orbit passes through
debris left "like bread crumbs" in the
wake of a comet. The comet Swift-
Tuttle is the "parent body" of the
Perseids.
The small particles
Around quickly burn up in
Gainesville the Earth's atmo-
sphere, streaking the
night sky with brief flashes of distant
light. Saturday is when largest amount
of cosmic debris is expected to strike.
Helms suggested that city residents
interested in watching the shower
head out of town to get a better view,
but he cautioned that parks and rec-
reation areas are rarely open late at
night, unless they allow camping.
"If you have a friend that has a farm
or a place in the country you could go
there," he said.
A former NASA engineer who
worked on the Apollo and space shut-
tle programs, Helms has been evading


Florida's worsening light pollution
since he retired four years ago.
He moved into a house near Old
Town, where he says the skies are dark
enough to get a clear look at astronom-
ical events like the Perseids.
Light from the moon and electric
lamps are exacerbated by the airborne
haze common in the summer.
Haze and cloud cover scatter light
particles and block a clear view of the
sky from the ground.
Telesco said that both light pollu-
tion and the bright, rising moon on
Friday may indeed shroud the shower,
but stressed that the view could be
good even from the city if the sky is
clear enough.
"If it's a really cloudless night
then the light pollution isn't as much
of a factor," he said. "It's not so bad
around Gainesville, or just a few miles
out of Gainesville."
Meteor showers are concentrated
around a place in the sky called the
radiant, which is where most of the
debris enters the atmosphere.
Stargazers should look for the
Perseids' radiant near the constella-
tion Perseus, the shower's namesake,
in the northeastern part of the sky.

Researchers discover revolutionary test for cancer


* WIDE USE OF NEW UF-DEVELOPED
TEST COULD TAKE YEARS.

By DANIELLA OTALORA
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF scientists have pioneered a new method
for detecting cancer cells creating a proce-
dure is the first step to possibly providing
earlier diagnoses.
This process can distinguish cancerous cells
from healthy ones. The .technique has been
tested on leukemia cells and is the gateway to
diagnosing cancer at the molecular level, said
Weihong Tan, a UF chemistry professor.


Tan explained that there are molecular dif-
ferences between healthy cells and cancerous
cells that have been too difficult to distinguish
before this discovery.
The team of 10 scientists used aptamers, or
short strands of chemically synthesized DNA,
as a molecular tool.
"Molecules are more effective, more spe-
cific and can be produced much easier and at a
lower cost," Tan said.
The new technique uses patent recognition
to identify subtypes of cancers as well.
Biomarkers, or substances that detect par-
ticular diseases, are used to identify where the
cancerous cells are derived from, said Ying
Li, assistant professor for the Department


of Pathology, Immunology and Laboratory
Medicine. However, that doesn't mean that a
clear diagnosis can be made, he said.
More work still needs to be done before the
technique can be implemented.
"It potentially can be used for clinical prac-
tice," Li said.
Li said that pathologists
UF detect the majority of can-
: '""':;'' cers with some of the same
technology that was used 50
years ago. The shape and other characteristics
of tumor tissues help give a diagnosis, but by
the time the diagnosis can be made the cancer
has advanced, he said in a UF press release.
Most of the research was done on leuke-


mia. However, some work is being done on
liver and lung cancers. In about two to three
years, research will determine whether it can
be used in other cancers, Li said.
This project, which has been in the works
for two years, cost about $300,000 and was
supported by UF Vice President for Research
Win Phillips. The scientists paired with the
Shands Cancer Center for the research.
So far, 27 patient samples have been used.
Because of the long process needed to
obtain approval of medical discoveries from
the Food and Drug Administration and other
government agencies, Tan said that he doesn't
know when the new method will go into wide
use.


Pests can

carry many

illnesses

By CEDRIC HARRIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Heed warning to flies -
those buggers spread diseases
such as pinkeye.
Flies breed and thrive in
trash that hasn't been taken
out and in unwashed dishes
in the sink, and UF research-
ers warn about the potential
ill effects these winged insects
can cause, especially during
the sticky summer months.
Jeff Hertz, a graduate
research assistant in the UF
Department of Entomology
and Nematology, said that
during the summer, Florida's
humidity causes a massive
bug population increase.
"You can have 800 flies in
three weeks from one fly,"
Hertz said.
Rain also causes fly breed-
ing because it creates more
moist, unsanitary environ-
ments, he said.
There's a simple break
down for these bugs: big flies
and little flies.
Big flies are houseflies,
which can carry intestinal dis-
eases such as dysentery.
Fruit flies are the little flies,
which have been known to
cause pinkeye.
Little flies breed indoors
in kitchen or bathroom sinks,
garbage, plant litter and in
drains clogged with hair.
Hertz said aging fruit can
also be a breeding ground,
because many fruits will have
fly eggs on their skin when
purchased.
Refrigerating fruit is bene-
ficial because the bugs cannot


develop, he said.
Baby flies are usually born
in feces and garbage.
Within 24 hours, fly eggs
hatch into tiny maggots.
These maggots wiggle around
moist garbage, constantly eat-
ing for four to six days.
The maggots pupate,
which is similar to forming
a cocoon except the maggots
themselves harden, and they
soon transform into flies.
In large apartment com-
plexes, trash disposals can
attract big flies, Hertz said.
He said the open trash
containers sometimes over-
fill, which creates the perfect
environment for fly breeding.
When the container becomes
.too crowded, the big flies will
migrate to other places such
as apartment kitchens and
bathrooms.
When all flies land, they
either defecate or vomit, and
almost all of them carry hun-
dreds of diseases.
Flies leave spots that are
either light-colored, which
are the fly's vomit, or dark-
colored, which are the .fly's
feces.
By Florida law, apartment
complexes are required to
supply pest control, Hertz
said.
Locating the breeding site
and thoroughly cleaning it
keeps the flies from multiply-
ing, Hertz said.
If the fly problem persists,
students and faculty members
can place a glue trap to catch
the flies, and UF's urban
entomology department will
identify the type of fly and
give suggestions on how to
get rid of them.
Hertz said he does not
eat in restaurants with little
flies buzzing about because
it means there is a sanitation
problem inside the restau-
rant.

Eating disorders under attack at UF


* UF EXPERTS SAY MEDIA IMAGES BEAR SOME
OF THE BLAME FOR COMMON DISORDERS.

By LINDSAY HUBBARD
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's Student Health Care Center is home to numerous
doctors and nurses who are often faced with helping stu-
dents suffering from eating disorders.
One mental health counselor, Helda Montero, said that
she sees a lot of women and some men, ranging from fresh-
men to graduating seniors.
"The freshmen look around to all the tan and fit girls and
immediately feel inadequate," Montero said.
But what starts out as just a diet can very quickly turn
into a helpless fight for control of one's life through food.
"Research shows that the most powerful predictor of de-
veloping an eating disorder is dieting," said UF journalism
professor Kim Walsh-Childers, an expert in media effects on
health.
The most common eating disorders include anorexia
nervosa, characterized by self-starvation and excessive
weight loss, and bulimia, a secretive cycle of binge-eating
then getting rid of the food through vomiting, laxative
abuse or overexercising.
Others include binge eating disorder, or compulsive
overeating, and muscle dysmorphia, more prevalent in
men, which involves the idea that one is not muscular
enough.


"Anorexia is the most difficult diagnosis to treat of all of
the eating disorders," said Dr. Beth-Anne Blue, a member
of the eating disorder team at the SHCC. "It is one of those
things that people get locked into. The willpower is so
strong, and it is hard to convince them that what they see in
the mirror isn't accurate. They are misperceiving the reality
of their body, ard it is very troubling."
But health-care professionals struggle with the question
of how much blame can be placed on the media.
"I was obsessed with supermodels."
Sarah Burke
UF law student

"There is a relationship to those particular magazines,
fashion and fitness, and an internalization of the thin ideal
and drive for thinness," Walsh-Childers said.
Sarah Burke, a UF law student and a former cast member
on MTV's "The Real World," said that she first noticed she
had bulimic tendencies when she was 14 or 15 years old.
"I was obsessed with supermodels," Burke" said. "I read
magazines constantly"
Last year, Burke, who said she struggled with eating
disorders for about 10 years, decided to talk to a Gainesville
psychologist.
"You're going to look your best when you're happy
inside," Burke said. "I still pick up issues of magazines of
diets and celebrities, but I feel sexy because I'm strong and
independent, and I have fun."

ON CAMPUS

Crews combat waterborne weed on lake's surface


By MICHELLE BACHMANN
Alligator Contributing Writer
You see it as the picturesque lake that
graces the UF campus a place for reflec-
tion and recreation, as well as a haven for the
university's reptilian mascot.
But on some days large sections of Lake
Alice are completely covered by a waterborne
weed.
Ken Langeland, a professor and biologist
with UF's College of Agricultural and Life
Sciences, said the reason for the excessive wa-
ter coverage is a non-native, invasive plant.
"The biggest problem on Lake Alice is
the water hyacinth," Langeland said. "The
free-floating mats, or 'tussocks,' (of water hya-
cinths) have to be harvested."
"Small water retention ponds crammed
full of vegetation is a good diverse wildlife
habitat," he said. "The difference in managing
good quality aquatic vegetation is in both the
public perception of aesthetics and the health
of the ecosystem."
Erick Smith, an urban forester with the UF
Physical Plant Division, said the high nutrient
content of the water is the real culprit at Lake
Alice.
The lake acts as a large retention pond,
with the adjacent eastern marsh filtering out
nutrients from nearly 1,000 acres of storm
water runoff on campus, he said. This water
then flows into Lake Alice and is routed to a
recharge well that empties directly into the
Florida Aquifer.
"There were a lot of nutrients in the water
when it was flowing through the marsh,"
Smith said. "The marsh was acting as a filter
to clean the water before it came to Lake Alice,
which it still does."


Andrea Morales / Alligator Staff
UF Physical Plant employee Wayne Carawan runs a harvester Wednesday afternoon at
Lake Alice. Carawan uses the harvester to remove invasive water plants.


But many years of filtering out nutrients
have resulted in a high nutrient content within
the marsh itself. Water percolating through the
marsh actually picks up nutrients and depos-
its them in the lake, Smith said.
Water hyacinths thrive under these condi-
tions by pulling the nutrients they need to
survive out of the water. Natural predators,
such as insects or disease, are the best method
of control for native plants, he said, but intro-
duced plants or "exotics" like water hyacinth


actually flourish in Florida.
'There is not a level playing field," Smith
said. "These (exotic) plants have the advan-
tages because they don't have the natural
predators."
By taking the plants out of the ecosystem,
the excessive nutrients are removed from the
lake completely, he said.
Two methods of aquatic plant control are
used at Lake Alice, Smith said.
Wayne Carawan, a grounds department


worker with the Physical Plant Division,
runs a harvester as the primary measure for
water plant management from May through
September.
A harvester is a bargelike boat that re-
moves the water plants in large batches. This
machine goes out onto Lake Alice and drops
a long boom into the water, Carawan said. A
conveyor belt on the boom moves the free-
floating hyacinth out of the water and into a
basket at the rear of the harvester.
The plant material is then processed into
fertilizer, compost and mulch, he said.
While Carawan works to keep the lake
dear of water hyacinth, the occasional alliga-
tor, turtle and fish has taken a ride on his con-
veyor belt, he said. But he stays alert for them,
reversing the mechanism when one appears.
"I've had one (alligator) about halfway up
the belt," Carawan said. "I realized he was
there and he realized I was there. Both of us
were like 'OK, now which one is getting off
first?'" he said.
As a secondary measure of aquatic plant
management, a team from the Environmental
Health and Safety Division sprays herbicides
along the shoreline. But this type of chemical
management has shown only limited effec-
tiveness, Smith said. The plants die, sink and
decompose on the lake bottom, leaving the
nutrients to settle into the soil.
While these chemicals can be useful in ar-
eas where the harvester cannot reach due to
low water levels, harvesting remains the best
management method, he said.
"By taking the plants out of the lake, we
remove the nutrients completely," Smith said.
"Removing the aquatic vegetation, like vacu-
uming a rug, is just something that will have
to happen. It's maintenance."

The Athens Connection

Now It's Overhead gets help


from R.E.M., finishes tour I


By SHEM FLEENOR
Avenue Writer

Artistic integrity and musical
success are two terms seldom used
in the same sentence.
"The greatest thing about R.E.M.
is that they haven't relinquished
their artistic integrity a bit," said
Now It's Overhead creator, vocal-
ist and multi-instrumentalist Andy
Lemaster.
He's a good judge of R.E.M.'s
character.
Lemaster, the floppy-haired
Southern gentleman from Athens,
Ga., has had an up close and per-
sonal vantage point of the ground-
breaking trio since he was a kid.
Though Lemaster signed with-
one of indie rock's most renowned
labels in 2001, being asked on tour
by Michael Stipe was an awe-inspir-
ing experience.
"He heard the first album and
liked it," Lemaster explained. "I met
him in Athens a while back. When
our second album was coming out,
they were getting set to go on tour,
and asked us to open for them."
Lemaster jumped at the chance.
The experience helped propel
his music into a broader, brighter
stratosphere. The exposure helped
the indie collective shed its status
as just another band in a long line
of fledgling Athens bands trying to

crack into the music business.
At the core, the group will al-
ways be an Athens band, but the
tour with R.E.M. helped them gar-
ner a national following consisting
of people outside the grassroots
indie scene.
Chloe Dolandis, an accom-
plished songstress and co-host of
Nickelodeon's "Friday Night Slime
Time" had never heard Now It's
Overhead before Sunday, but she
expects to be listening a bit more in
the future.
"It's really well-produced," she
said. "It's true to form indie good
enough for the pretentious indie
f--, yet palatable enough for lovers
of 'The O.C.'"
Like R.E.M., Lemaster started
out playing dingy dives and house
parties in and around Athens.
Like R.E.M., Lemaster garnered
success without compromising his
artistic integrity.
He's worked with Saddle Creek
Records labelmates Bright Eyes, Rilo
Kiley, The Faint and Azure Ray.
His baby, Transduction Studios
in Chase Park, Ga., has recorded
R.E.M., The Glands, Chris Martin
and Drive-By Truckers.
Now It's Overhead's 2001 self-
titled debut album and 2004's "Fall
Back Open," were both critically ac-
claimed. Both albums were studio-
based and heavily produced, giving
it an almost classical, yet electrified
structure. Lemaster wrote nearly ev-
ery note for every instrument heard
on both projects.
The new album, "Dark Light
Daybreak," broke away from the
dreamy, gooey, wavy gravy wall of
sound of its predecessors.
"This album is not quite as soft,"
he said. "Its a bit more in your face,
a bit more aggressive. It's fun to
rediscover your sound on each new
album."
"Dark Light Daybreak" is more
live-oriented. The songwriting is
more direct and organic than the
first two ventures.
Lemaster is the chief architect
of "Dark Light Daybreak," but the
band, drummer Clay Leverett; bass-
ist Orenda Fink; keyboardist Maria
Taylor; guitarist Brad Register and
bassist Curtis Brown helped estab-
lish a more awakened sound.

is all over it.
But the collective forms like
Voltron in the sense that the parts
are interchangeable. Each musician
brings their own set of strengths
and weaknesses. The only constant
is Lemaster. He's the abbot of the
clan.
The album doesn't hit shelves
until Sept. 12, but he already consid-
ers it a success.
"Just getting the album done ac-
complishes 99 percent of my goals,"
he said.

Drummer Clay Leverett stopped
at a gas station somewhere on the

Leverett forgot to put gas in the

for it.

a minor setback,
dwarfed by the
everett joy received from
lead's drummer playing packed
houses in New

and Omaha, Neb.,
where Saddle Creek Records is
headquartered.
The only thing standing in the
way of the band and their much-
anticipated homecoming was their
show Monday at Common Grounds
in Gainesville, and Tuesday's show
at Jack Rabbits in Jacksonville.


Monday, the group performed
with the same vigor and enthusiasm
they would have had if they played
at Pianos on the Lower East Side of
Manhattan. Pianos was Lemaster's
favorite tour venue.
"New York is heaven on earth,"
he said. "You've got the world at
your fingertips."
Though he was excited to play
New York at the beginning of the
tour, he was just as enthusiastic
about performing in Gainesville at
the conclusion of the adventure.
"Gainesville is a great city with
great bands," he said.
His favorites include Paper
Crane and The Mercury Program.
"Gainesville is Florida's version
of Athens," he said.
Monday at Common Grounds,
Lemaster and Now It's Overhead
lived solely in the moment, thor-

the experience of getting paid to not
compromise their artistic integrity.
Lemaster, dressed in all black,
took the stage just after midnight.
He and his baby-blue Gibson guitar
swayed back and forth for nearly
an hour.
"During shows, we just worry
about playing the best we possibly
can," he said. "Besides, Gainesville
is always a good show."

the year, Allen's "Alright, Still" is
a nearly impeccable collection of


breezy, genre-bending pop. Her
varied experiments in catchmess
are united by her wit ,and her
charmingly effortless vocals. Not
one given to hyperbolic acrobat-
ics like Mariah Carey, Allen is
content to coo her way into your
heart or to coo your sorry butt
out of the bar. That's right, there's
sass in Allen's
is.Fi lyrics, and
whether she's
_. singing about
*the joy she feels
0 i6 about watching
her cheating ex
cry ("Smile"), relating her dis-
taste for drunks trying to pick her
up ("Knock 'Em Out") or remi-
niscing about a crumbling rela-
tionship ("Little Things"), there's
one thing she won't let you forget
about her intelligence.
A Band of Bees "Sunshine
Hit Me": When a record can
make me feel nostalgia for things


I've never seen or experienced, I
know it's good. A Band of Bees'
"Sunshine Hit Me" makes me
fondly recall my nonexistent days
of listening to AM radio 30 years
ago, sprawling motionless under
a tree in the inner-city park, trying
to laze the heat of summer away.
Whatever false memories this
album conjures, though, they al-
ways deal with summer, with the
sticky, viscous heat of movement
and the cool allure of night. This
is brilliantly executed feel-good
music, made for snapping fingers
and inwardly shaking hips.
Bola Sete "Tour de Force":
This underappreciated bossa
nova gem from 1964 is a subtle,
stylishly arranged, carefree take
on the explosively influential
Brazilian genre. Though not
groundbreaking, what separates
this album from most other bossa
nova-records is Bola Sete's focus
on percussion, which recalls


samba in its reliance on shakers
and sticks as opposed to common
drums, such as on the blissful "To
de Sinuca" and the brief, lyrical
"Dilema." "Tour de Force" isn't
an epic, overwrought master-
piece but instead is entirely satis-
fied with plying the easier, lighter
side of the genre. Its thoroughly
laid-back atmo-
sphere perfectly
suits the lazi-
ness of a day at
the beach.
The Clientele
"The Violet
Hour": The Clientele excels at
making wistful '60s-psych-tinged
guitar pop. There's a warm time-
lessness and pensive innocence,
to these songs, and "The Violet
Hour" puts them in a gorgeous,
stately flow. Moving from the
chiming title track to the lazy slide
guitars of "Voices in the Mall"
through the Byrds-like psyche-


delic exploration of "Lamplight"
to the surprisingly distorted (but
hardly aggressive) buildup of
"The House Always Wins," this
album is 50 minutes of portable
summer night memories.
Luomo "Vocal City": More.
stylish than anything else on this
list, "Vocal City" is the sound
of a sleek South Beach night.
Disembodied vocals flit in and
out of the music's intoxicating
haze, which boasts a phospho-
rescence like neon tubing against
burnished steel. Airy synths,
anchored by insistent, unobtru-
sive beats don't soar epically
- instead, they chur the deep,
sweaty closeness of the dance
floor. Throw this one on during
the road trip home and you'll
lose track of time, emerging at the
other end of a lustrous tunnel 75
minutes closer to your destina-
tion.

Exhibit opens at Reitz


By STEPHANIE SNYDER
Alligator Contributing Writer

On Friday night, aliens, jazz musicians,
doves and mummies could all be found in
one room at the Reitz Union.
The opening reception for UF alumna
Tanya Beatty's art exhibit, "Mysteries of
the Heart," was held at-the Reitz Union
Gallery from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. on Aug.
4. The exhibit included an eclectic mix of
mediums and subjects, from oil pastels
to batik fabrics and from farmhouses to
giraffes.
"I have a lot of weird interests," Beatty
explained with a laugh. "I'm not confined
to one type of thought or design. I'm
interested in so many things that I can't
limit myself."
Beatty's range is apparent in her work.
A pencil drawing titled "Invasion" de-
picts a woman in a bathtub being attacked
by an alien. Hanging on a wall across the
room is a watercolor painting of a two-
story farmhouse in a golden wheat field,
titled, "Simplicity."
UF alum Jason Venture said he noticed
a lot of variety and different types of me-.
diums that Beatty used.
"She can do stuff in pencil, acrylic and
sculpture," Venture said. "My favorites
are 'Thank You,' 'Pulse' and 'Invasion.'"
An intimate group of visitors milled
around the room, observing everything
from acrylic paintings of doves swirled in
a palette of purples and pinks which
Beatty said were influenced by the works
of Russian-born French painter Marc
Chagall to the clay sculptures of twist-


ed, ghostly figures with sallow eyes and
gaping mouths.
Beatty describes her sculptures as be-
ing "somewhat eerie, freaky," and having
"a look of death or of being emotionally
drained."
"They represent more of my dark
side," she said. "But I also have a series
of oil pastel drawings which represent my
enthusiastic, passionate side."
Anna Miller, who has known Beatty
for a month, said the artwork was "defi-
nitely diverse."
"I think it speaks about different parts
of her personality that she doesn't always
portray," Miller observed. "It's kind of
feminine, too."
Gallery visitor Denise Weber said she
saw Beatty's clay works as "exceptional."
"She grew up in Gainesville, and I
grew up in .Gainesville and I feel like
there's a lot of feeling in her work about
Gainesville," Weber said. "It feels nice for
me."
In Beatty's self-portrait, a black-and-
white framed photograph, she leans
against a Volkswagen Beetle, her back
turned to reveal wavy hair cascading to
her waist. A black cat squeezes itself be-
tween her waist and the car.
Much like the pieces in her exhibit,
the portrait is dark and faceless, but still
evokes elements of fun and mystery.
"Art is a reflection of our souls," Beatty
wrote in her artists' statement.
Beatty graduated from UF with a
master's degree in mass communications
in 2002. Her artwork will be on display
until Friday.


Andrea Morales / Alligator Staff
UF alumna Tanya Beatty's exhibit "Mysteries of the Heart" is on display at the Reitz

Saving allows cheap living c a le n r


ome people go to great lengths to
get some extra cash.
Daniel Doble and Whitney
SSchmink won $50,000 on "Fear
Factor" using their mouths to pass poker
chips to each other while sitting in an
alligator-filled tank, their heads covered
with frogs.
Best friends B.J. Averell and Tyler
Macniven traveled 59,000 miles back-
packing in competitions across nine
countries on "The Amazing
Race" for $1 million. Jen


And 24-year-old Aras
Baskauskas earned a $1 million
check for spending nearly 40
days on a Panamanian island.
where he ate bugs and slept on a
beach on "Survivor."
For some reason, TV networks seem
to want to pay people for performing-ex-
treme feats. And the ballsier the moves,
the bigger the bucks.
But what about extreme saving?
I'm talking the coupon-clipping,
penny-pinching, dodging-four-lanes-of-
traffic-for-a-quarter-on-the-street saving.
The admirable, ingenious and even dar-
ing kinds of ways of saving your money
that make people want to reward you for
your cleverness.
Sounds like a hit reality show to me.
What's the gutsiest thing you would
do to save cash?
For starters, toss your cell phone and
only call people using 1-800-COLLECT
from pay phones. If your friends don't


if


want to accept the charges, quickly de-
liver-your message when the recording
asks, for your name.
Lower your water utility bills by bath-
ing in community pool or hot tub. You
can blow dry your hair in the bathroom
using an automatic hand dryer.
Toilet train your cat in order to save
money on kitty litter. No one ever likes
cleaning litter boxes anyway.
Forget the mall raid the lost and
er Pfaff found. It's like thrift shhopping
for free!
Nothing says, "Happy
Birthday!" like a gift wrapped
in newspaper, especially if it's
the comics section. For an ex-
tra treat, leave the crossword
unfinished.
Toilet paper? Pfft. Ever heard of your
grocery-store receipt?
Stock up on salt, pepper and condi-
ments from fast-food restaurants. When
you go out to eat, make your own lemon-
ade the free way by ordering water with
lemon and loading it up with sugar.
Want free rent? Live in your car. Park
close to campus, or just purchase a park-
ing decal and "live" on campus for free.
Teach your dog to drink out of the toi-
let. Just please, be sure to flush after your
cat's used it.
If everything else fails, you could at
least marry a handyman. Think about all
the money you'll be saving on repairs!
Two words: Ramen noodles. Need I
say more?


Web gives shot at love


W e met online."
Admit it. You probably made
- a teeny tiny judgment just then.
Am I wrong?
Although I'd love to think that meet-
ing someone online is just as acceptable
as, say, meeting at church, I get the no-
tion that most people are still hesitant
to meet someone online. Forget about
owning up to it.
Despite the perplexing popularity of
MySpace.com et al, a lot of you
still feel like meeting some- Maghal
one online is, a) instant loser
status, and, b) a good way to
get kidnapped. Pshaw. I think
it's a great way to boost your
social calendar, find a rock-
climbing partner and practice
your people skills. And I've
only been kidnapped once.
I bet you've bought your textbooks
online, or downloaded a podcast.
You maybe even found your room-
mate online, or sold your microwave
on Craigslist. Why? Because it's con-
venient, inexpensive, easy, logical
- which are many of the same reasons
why I don't hesitate to have an online
profile now and again.
- -Tunderstand that the only way that
it can really work for you is if a lot of
other people also have online profiles
- and I don't just mean the creepy ag-
ing bachelors. Duh. So I am officially
encouraging you to stop judging people
who meet friends or lovers online and
to join them. I mean, us.
Here are a few sites to get you start-
-


n


ed, and some to just, well...you'll see:
Match.com and eHarmony.com are
the most famous. I've created a profile
on each but have only met people from
Match. Each costs money, but receiving
messages is free, so I could get loads
of messages all day without paying a
thing a key factor in online dating.
For' dudes who aren't willing to
cough up the dough, I recommend
OkCupid.com and PlentyofFish.com,
which are both free.
McDowell Lavalife.com is cool because
it lets you choose from three
divisions dating, relation-
ships, or intimate encoun-
ters.
For those looking
L for mainly "intimate
encounters," there is
AdultFriendFinder.com. For those look-
ing to meet a Jewish partner, their's
JDate.com. Gay? Outpersonals.com.
(Many of the above-mentioned sites
also allow you to specify which gen-
der you're looking to meet.) Got
herpes and sick of having the talk?
PositiveSingles.com.
Looking to meet a millionaire?
Millionairematch.com, and yes I have
a profile. Obsessed with Star Trek?
TrekPassions.com. Into transgender
lovers? MeetSheMale.com.
Anyway, you get my point. Don't
snub your nose, even if you are the most
popular dude/chick on the planet. And
no, I'm not telling you where I met my
boyfriend. Some things even I keep to
myself.

UF student recalls theft


By SHEM FLEENOR
Avenue Writer

I slipped my foot into a red pair of Nike
Air Max, on sale for $40, when the fear set
in.
"It's nothing, just my imagination, a flash
of paranoia," I thought.
But the fear didn't go away. It got louder,
more pronounced.
Unsure of what I was after, I wandered
out of the Shoe Show on North Main Street.
My eyes scanned North Main Street
-- then South.
"Somebody stole my scooter," I mumbled.
"It vanished." .
It was taken in broad daylight, in a
parking lot of a busy shopping center on a
Saturday afternoon. I was in the store less
than 10 minutes. I didn't even plan to buy
anything I was just bored.
I scanned the recesses of my imagination
trying to think of the next logical scenario.
"Maybe it got towed," I thought. "Please,
God, tell me it got towed."
But it wasn't illegally parked. I was cer-
tain of that.
I reluctantly reported the theft to the
Gainesville Police, although though I was
certain it was a waste of time. I was sure
the scooter was already sold to someone in
Williston, Starke or Lake City.
Three hours later, Officer Daniel Surrency,
a stocky man with a blond crew cut and a
black GPD uniform came to my door with a
surly expression on his face.
I explained to him my situation. He filled
out a report. I thanked him. He left.
Moments later, a thunderous pounding
erupted outside my front door.
"We found your scooter!" He said.
"Somebody ditched it in Duval Heights. Get
your shoes and a shirt on."


On the four-mile drive east of Main Street
to Duval Heights from my apartment by
Ward's Supermarket, Surrency braced me
for the worst.
"You give some of these kids a screw-
driver, and they think they're MacGyver," he
said. "They just joyride 'em and ditch 'em."
Ditch 'em? Judging by my scooter, they
destroy them.
Mine was the 12th scooter yanked in a
period of three days.
The perpetrator was arrested late Saturday
trying to steal a scooter from campus.
My scooter was found downed on its side
like a wounded gazelle, on the corner of NE
25th Terrace and NE 11th Place.
My turquoise and silver retro twin stroke,
pile of useless plastic and steal, had the front
panel ripped clean off. My electric start and
the kick start were demolished, rendering the
machine completely useless. Even the seat
was ripped off in an attempt to break into the
cargo area. I half expected Surrency to chalk
outline the now useless machine.
"You've got insurance, right?" Surrency
pulled his sunglasses low, squinting his baby
blue and gold-speckled eyes at me.
Hell no, I didn't have insurance. The rea-
son I got a scooter in the first place is because
I'm too broke to pay for luxuries, like more
than a gallon of gas at a time, or insurance.
The real irony of it all: I was just 75 yards
and a plate-glass window away from the
place, taking the only mode of transportation
I have the weekend of finals, no less.
The most painful part is that I had my car-
buretor replaced in June. I specifically asked
the mechanic to disconnect the standard-
alarm that comes with all scooters purchased
at New Scooters 4 Less.
In my naivete, I chided, "Who'd steal a
scooter?"
Now I know.

Utah transfer impresses Gators


* RYAN SMITH PRACTICED TUES-
DAY FOR THE FIRST TIME.

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

Ryan Smith hung his head, wiped
away the sweat and heaved a 90-degree
kind of sigh.
It was at this moment, after his first
practice with UF had already concluded,
that Smith realized he was quite far away
from Salt Lake City.
"I'm trying to get used to the heat; I'm
a little light-headed," Smith said Tuesday.
"It's sucking the life out of me."
The Gators would rather hear that
than hear nothing at all. The Smith saga
has finally ended with the cornerback
making his transfer from Utah official.
He will attend graduate school, study for
a master's degree in educational leader-
ship and will have two years of eligibility
remaining.
Perhaps now UF can breathe the
proverbial sigh of relief with regards to
its corerback situation.
"It's a bonus to have a guy who
has college experience it's a free agent
signing," secondary coach Chuck Heater
said.
Smith who has mostly been wear-
ing a yellow jersey at practice played
under coach Urban Meyer's undefeated
Utah team in 2004. Then just a fresh-
man, he burst onto the scene, garnering
Freshman All-America honors and finish-
ing the season with 44 tackles, one inter-
ception and seven breakups. However,
he struggled dealing with Meyer's de-


parture. He lost his starting job in 2005
and-left the team this spring.
UF was able to take advantage of a
new NCAA rule that grants graduate
students the ability to transfer if they
receive their bachelor's degree in fewer
than four years. It looks like Smith hasn't
lost a step.
"He functioned the way he did when
he was an excellent player for us," said
Heater, who also coached Smith at Utah.
"He looked like the same guy."


', ','-'
.. a


After sitting out early, Smith covered
wide receiver Dallas Baker during pass-
ing drills. Quarterback Chris Leak tried
to find Baker on a slait, but Smith was
right there, forcing Baker to reach around
his helmet and drop the ball-
Smith should be able to compete for a
starting job, if not secure it within days.
"That's what I expect also, but I don't
want-to go out and say anything," Smith

boost in the secondary.


Wynn sits


with fever,

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

Of all the possible scenarios Coach
Urban Meyer envisioned for his run-
ning backs this fall, a throbbing fever
and poor play weren't two of them.
Running back DeShawn Wynn
missed his second consecutive practice
because of a worsening fever. Wynn's
temperature increased to 102 degrees
Wednesday, just one day after Meyer
said it was at 101 degrees.
"They told me he was going to get
better, but he's not better," Meyer said.
When asked if Wynn's absence is
hurting his chances at a- starting job,
Meyer responded:
"The dock's ticking absolutely."
UF has waited and waited and wait-
ed for Wynn to make a move up the
depth chart since the start of last sea-
son. But instead, the back has matched
every expectation with a reciprocal
disappointment.
First, the coaches said he didn't
understand what he must contribute
mentally. Then there was a weight is-
sue. And now? Well, nobody can blame
him for a fever, but it obviously doesn't
do much to boost his stock.
That is bad news for the position.

'Defaced' revised: Runner responds to Alligator's Facebook article


The July 20 edition of the
Alligator's sports section featured
an article titled "Defaced." The
general subject was inappropri-
ate Internet listings by or about
student athletes. The information
used regarding me was from an
Internet posting written by some-
one else as a joke. The Alligator did
not just print the text; it was heav-
ily editorialized with the intent to
lead the reader to some very seri-
ous and false conclusions.
Humor, pranks, rumor, farce
fiction, satire, etc. are common on
college Web sites. I think the cited
Internet text was so far-fetched that

and exercise caution before taking a
stand. I have received a lot of com-

of which includ-

of, "I can't believe

have raised some questions about
the truth of the posting). I have never
used illegal substances in any shape
or form and have never failed a drug
test. They could have requested test
records. They could have inter-
viewed me, or interviewed my
coaches, teammates, school advis-
ers, employer or anyone who knows
and works with me on a daily basis.
If they had, they could never have
reconciled furthering credibility for
a crazy, ill-conceived joke as fact.
Instead, without investigation, res-
ervation, or any real evidence, the

juana is a crime," compounded with
damning and twisted insinuations
and assertions designed to influ-
ence the reader's perception (which
sadly, I'm sure it has).
Journalists should NEVER
insinuate criminal activity when
they don't have a clue in the world
if it's true!
The article's headline, comments,
general tone, rhetoric and vindic-
tiveness addressed at the athletes
were an attempt to sensationalize
the material into a "hot" story, in
a way unbeholden to professional
journalistic standards.

UF hires former


UK swim coach
ALLIGATOR SERVICES

UF Head swimming coach Gregg Troy announced
Tuesday that Pete Knox, a 1978 UF graduate, has been
named the Gators' new assistant coach. Knox served on
the Kentucky coaching staff from 1988 to 2005.
"Pete is a very experienced coach with a tremen-
dous background in the [Southeastern
Conference]," -Troy said. "He had
outstanding success with sprinters at
Kentucky for years and really built a
strong sprint tradition there."
Knox began at UK as a graduate as-
sistant in 1988 and was promoted to
assistant coach in 1993. During his ten-
Troy ure, he oversaw the Wildcats' sprinters,
directed the team's dry-land program
and monitored the performance, academic status and
nonverbal behaviors of the Kentucky swimmers as a ba-
sis for sustaining motivation and maintaining emotional
balance. Knox also served as a karate instructor in the
school's kinesiology and health-promotions department.
By the time he left the Wildcats in 2005, Knox had
coached finalists and semifinalists at the Olympic Trials.
"Pete has a great understanding of bio-mechanics and
stroke technique," Troy said.

said, adding he anticipates to be
fully acclimated to UF's pace in
a week. "I expect to come in and

Meyer runs the same defen-
sive framework he did at Utah,
making Smith's transition that
much smoother. Heater said it is

90 percent identical and that the
cornerback will only have new
terminology to worry about.


That's great news for a UF
team desperate at the position. It
has been a month and a half since
Avery Atkins at the time, the
team's No. 1 cornerback was
accused of hitting the mother of
his child and subsequently asked
to be released from his scholar-
ship. Meyer then moved hard-
hitting safety Reggie Nelson to
cornerback. But now that Smith is
here, he might reconsider.
"It's not set yet," Meyer said.


UF offense struggles on third consecutive day

[running backs]; I can't tell you that," Meyer said. "I
have no idea."
SOPHOMORE SLUMP?: Meyer has historically taken
his offenses to another level during his second year at
programs. Unfortunately, that progression has yet to
definitively kick in at UF.
Monday, receivers dropped a multitude of catch-
able passes. Tuesday, the defense dominated. And
Wednesday, quarterbacks Chris Leak and Tim Tebow
both struggled.
"I'm going to go watch the tape [of quarterback play]
in a second, but my reaction is probably the same as
everyone else watching it that it wasn't very good,"
Meyer said.


HARVIN LOSES STRIPE: Highly publicized freshman
Percy Harvin has taken his first step in the transition
from "good on paper" to "good on the field."
Wednesday, the receiver became the first freshman
to lose the black stripe from his helmet. The coaches
remove a stripe when they believe that
player has earned his stay on the team.
Asked why Harvin deserved it, Meyer
replied:
S "Making plays, and he enjoys
football."
INJURY UPDATE: Tight end Tate Casey wore a massive
boot on his left foot Wednesday and did not practice.
Meyer said the move was a precautionary reaction to
a bruised bone.
"He should be back tomorrow nothing major,"
Meyer said.
Defensive tackle Steven Harris left practice after ap-
pearing to suffer a leg injury during blocking drills.
