GATOR GRABS WIN


Pants snags


only one spot
By JOANNA BLAZ and ERIN EHRLICH
Alligator Writers

Pants Party supporters had plenty to
cheer about, but only for about 15 seconds.
It was announced early Thursday morn-
ing that Alan Passman took a graduate
Student Senate seat in the Spring Student
Government elections. But after that, it was
all Gator Party.
Ryan Moseley and Vanessa Goodwin,
Gator's presidential and vice presidential
candidates,
Student Government respectively,
Elections brought in 4,975
votes to 2,219
votes for Pants' Bruce Haupt and Eve Rizzo,
the party's presidential and vice presidential
candidates, respectively.
Gator claimed 44 seats of the 46
open Senate seats. Independent candi-
date Mackenzie Ezell took a College of
Engineering seat.
"I'm very proud of all the candidates,"
Moseley said, after a supporter showered
him with a beverage.
Thomas Harrington, a Gator member
who was elected to a graduate student seat,
said: "I'm really excited. Everyone's hard
work has paid off."
More than 7,600 students cast ballots in
the elections, far less than last Spring's turn-
out of more than 10,000.
Gator's treasurer candidate, E.J. Walicki,
also won with nearly 70 percent of the vote.

Chesney plays sold-out benefit show at local venue


* TICKETS SOLD OUT IN
EIGHT MINUTES.

By JULIE ZERBIB
Alligator Contributing Writer

Eight minutes is all it took to
sell out the downtown concert
venue Common Grounds. One
would think The Stones were
rolling through town, but it was
none other than country music star
Kenny Chesney.


As part of his third annual Keg
In The Closet tour, Chesney de-
cided to only play small venues in
towns that are home to schools in
the Southeastern Conference.
The 400 tickets sold quickly and
were only $10 each. All proceeds
from the sales will go directly to
benefit Home Delivery, a Habitat
for Humanity hurricane relief ef-
fort that began after Hurricane
Katrina.
Traveling with only one truck
and a couple of buses as opposed


to his usual 19 tractor-trailers, this
tour is closer to Chesney's roots
when he played smaller, cozier
venues.
Chesney spent the day in
Gainesville, which was unevent-
ful except for
Arojind one paparazzi
Galnesville incident.
While sun-
bathing in the parking lot of
Common Grounds, Chesney be-
came the subject of adoring fans'
cameras, prompting him to pack


up and move inside the venue.
Aside from that episode,
the day went smoothly and the
concert started promptly at 9:
30 p.m.
The American Country Music
Entertainer of the Year treated his
fans to a variety of old hits, covers
and new songs.
The concert wasn't hugely
advertised, but the fans came in
masses and they came early.
Susan Svagdis, 30, of
Jacksonville, found out about


the concert through the Kenny
Chesney Fan Club and was at the
venue at 9 a.m.
"I got here so early because of
the excitement of tonight. Kenny is
huge!" Svagdis said.
Common Grounds, a usually
punk- and indie-rock venue, wel-
comed new fans.
"Having a different crowd is
good for business," said employee
Nick Zolnierowski. "It's always
good to change things up once in
a while."


Walk-on Brett
Swanson will play
his final home
game for the No. 5
Gators on Sunday
against Kentucky.
The guard fulfilled
his childhood goal
to play Division I
basketball. See

Group holds "PETA" BBQ
The smoky smell of barbecue
wafted across the Plaza of the
Americas on Wednesday, mingling
with the ethnic spices of Krishna
Lunch.
At a table just across the side-
walk from the long line of students
waiting to buy a vegetarian meal,
the College Republicans served
pulled pork, barbecue chicken,
baked beans, coleslaw and buttery
toast. The food was part of their
annual "PETA" barbecue, which
stands for People Eating Tasty
Animals. The event was catered by
David's Real Pit BBQ for $500.
The event started three years
ago, but this was the first year that
the organization got a permit to
hold the barbecue on campus.
Though the College
Republicans did not charge for the
food, they strongly suggested that
students contribute donations.
They also sold $15 T-shirts,

ELECTIONS

County advises student voters to update addresses


By DANIELLE TORRENT
Alligator Writer
dtorrent@alligator.org
Election time is here so find your
voter registration card and figure out where
you're supposed to go. Because for those
who vote under the wrong addresses, the
consequences are criminal.
"The law says you will notify our office
of a change of address," said Pam Carpenter,
Alachua County's supervisor of elections.
It's illegal to vote in a precinct in which


you no longer reside, Carpenter said. At the
polls, citizens have to sign an oath swearing
their personal information is true.
And according to state law, "A person
who willfully affirms falsely commits felony
of the third degree," Carpenter said.
The penalty: a $5,000 fine or five years in
prison.
UF anthropology senior Jarrett Brunny
has lived in two different places during his
four years at UF, but'he said he hasn't noti-
fied the elections office because "life is too
busy."


"The system is just too
slow anyway," Brunny
said. "We should be able
to do it digitally."
The elections office has
Been addressing the issue
of changing addresses
for years, Carpenter said.
Carpenter To remind students to
update their information,
the office runs a public service announce-
ment in the Alligator, advertises on the
radio and television and holds speeches


at fraternities, sororities and SFCC,
Carpenter said. Representatives also visit
UF's campus at least twice a year for voter
registration drives.
To find out which precinct you belong to
and where to vote and update address infor-
mation, visit http://elections.alachua.fl.us.
"It's much better to do it ahead of time so
you don't have to stand in line with people
who are in the wrong precinct," Carpenter
said. "You just have to make sure you do
that as soon as possible because we haven't
printed the poll registers yet."


SFCC block party unites downtown, main campuses


* 100 PEOPLE CAME FOR
FOOD, JAZZ AND INFO.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
A block party united SFCC's
main campus with its downtown
brother on Wednesday.


Students and staff from the
college's main campus in northwest
Gainesville visited the school's
downtown campus for jazz, country
fixin's and information about the.
perks of being an SFCC student.
Representatives from the main
campus' Student Life office were at
the block party to remind students
there of the resources available to


them, career counseling and techni-
cal programs.
Nestled between a pawn shop
and a Jamaican
Santa Fe restaurant in a
CommunRiy suburban neigh-
College borhood six
blocks northeast
of UF's campus, the downtown
campus block party entertained


about 100 people.
Mattox said the event, which was
originally created to cap off Black
History Month, was also about com-
munity involvement.
The mission of a community col-
lege is to reach out to the entire city,
not just the college students, Mattox
said.
Adriane Jones, an SFCC fresh-


man, attends college at the down-
town campus. Jones took the time
to mingle with other students and
talk to representatives from SFCC's
student government One Party, the
only party advertising at the event.
"This was my first time com-
ing to a SFCC event," Jones said.
"I brought my kids and they really
enjoyed it."

DEVELOPMENT

Mayor hopes to balance large and small businesses


By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

Think of Gainesville's City Commission as
Goldilocks and its multimillion-dollar devel-
opments as porridge.
Though the "just right" combination of
small businesses and multilevel complexes
remains to be found, money, location and
citizen appeal are playing big parts in the
city's planning.
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan called the
city's development strategy a balancing act:
Commissioners want to reward small and
unique businesses with tax incentives while
also bringing large companies to Gainesville's


poorer east side.
"Taco Bell is fine, and their food is tasty,"
Hanrahan said, "but I personally would
rather go to Burrito Bros."
The city's having no problems securing
development plans from big businesses.
Housing complexes like the three-
story Camden Court and the eight-story
University Comers are planned to rise about
a block away from campus. Others, like the
11-story Gainesville Greens and the four-
story The Bartram, are headed for downtown
and the now-flattened site of Gatorwood
Apartments.
And that's just housing.
After three failed attempts over the past
several years to build a Wal-Mart near the


headwaters of Hogtown Creek and Northside
Park, corporate and city officials finally com-
promised on a Waldo Road site close to East
Gainesville.
Commissioners cele-
brated the 206,000-square-
oot supercenter because it
would bring jobs and retail
to a part of town lacking
in both.
L Other complexes, like
Hanrahan the expansive SpringHills
planned for Interstate
75 and Northwest 39th Avenue, are not as
welcomed. The complex has encountered
nothing but problems since its developers,
the Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment


Trust, revised its proposal to allow for about
600 acres imagine about 450 Florida Fields,
only with less screaming.
Many local residents, as well as city of-
ficials, have opposed the complex. City
Commissioner Jack Donovan compared it to
a "nuclear bomb."
Besides endangering the scenic Millhopper
Road, decreasing property values and pos-
sibly polluting a nearby aquifer, upgrading
the surrounding roads for such a corporate
enclave could cost up to $120 million, accord-
ing to recent county data.
"Some other areas are certainly ripe for
new development and redevelopment,"
Hanrahan said, "and our job is to help make
that happen."


Play brings down curtains on Black History Month


* A UF ALUM WROTE IT.

By ASHLEY CAIN
Alligator Contributing Writer

After a monthlong celebration,
the closing ceremonies for Black
History Month 2007 didn't seem
like an ending at all.
"We'd like to encourage every-
one to celebrate black history not
just the 28 days of February, but
for the entire year," said Simone
Hanniford, a UF junior and the di-
rector of special events for the Black
History Month Committee.
The ceremony, held in the
Reitz Union Rion Ballroom on
Wednesday night, opened with:
rhythmic clapping to the Black
National Anthem. Each committee
member received an award repre-
senting their accomplishment and
an end to months of hard work.
A play written by UF graduate
Kenny Mulfort was .performed
during the ceremony to celebrate
his contribution to the accomplish-
ments of the black community.
Mulfort wrote "A Walk in My
Shoes" last summer after being in-
spired by a true-life story about one
of his best friends, who was framed
for rape.
Throughout the month, the


committee hosted a series of edu-
cational, entertaining and cultural
events that went with the month's
theme, "Our Cultural Anthology:


The Missing Chapters."
"It's our celebration of how
far we've come," said Varessa
McCray, a UF sophomore.


Events ranging from comedy
nights, fashion shows, step shows
and famous guest speakers cel-
ebrated the history and achieve-

ments of the black community.
For UF graduate student Billy
Holcombe, the president of the
Black Student Union, the most
moving event was when Accent
brought Martin Luther King III to
speak to UP students.
"If was surreal to have Martin

to us and know all the things his
father accomplished,"
Holcombe said.

After nine months of working
to make this year's Black History
Month happen, Hanniford said
it was very successful, but she is
ready to start plans for next year.
"Next year's month is going
to be even bigger and better,"
Hanniford said.

Gator Party sweeps SG executive race, wins all Senate seats but two


ELECTION, from page 1

"We're not used to having re-
sults available on time," Aungst
said as he announced the results
to the raucous crowd at the Reitz
Union Amphitheater just after
midnight.
Before heading to the Orange
& Brew, Gator members crowded
the bar at The Swamp Restaurant,
while Pants prepared for its "even-
tual victory" as Haupt put it
- at Farah's on the Avenue.
Tuesday, Pants came under fire
from Gator supporters for alleged
improper campaigning. Gator
supporter and former Swamp
Party Sen. John Clayton Brett,
who filed the complaints, felt the
party representatives who passed
out "I Voted" stickers might have
decreased the voter turnout.
Brett's complaints influenced
Elections Commissioner Jennifer
Cohen to issue a cease-and-desist
order, asking Pants to stop hand-
ing out the stickers.
After Pants failed to comply,
the commission held a meeting
which decided, with a vote of
three-to-one, that the stickers are
considered campaign material
and that the issue will be brought
before the SG Supreme Court. The
court has the power to disqualify
the remaining members of Pants
from holding Senate seats.
Haupt said, "I really wanted
them to disqualify us so we would
get better media."
He added that he wasn't sur-
prised with the defeat.
"We campaigned on what we
thought was right," he said as
Gator supporters lit victory cigars.
Pants' lone victor, Passman,


a graduate student, said he was
"blown away" by his victory and
didn't expect to win.
"The Elections Commission
determined that the stickers were
campaign material because they
were purchased by Bruce Haupt to
support his campaign," Supervisor
of Elections Brian Aungst said.
Aungst said he warned execu-
tives from Pants that they would
get in trouble when he first learned
Feb. 13 they were planning on
passing out the stickers.
"They rolled the dice and they
got a complaint filed against
them," Aungst said.
"The whole thing is unfortu-
nate," he said. "This hasn't hap-
pened before, and it's disappoint-
ing that it's gotten to this point."
Elections Commissioner
Christian George, who voted on
referring the issue to the Supreme
Court, said he didn't think the is-
sue was big enough to pass on to
the court, but that he does not sup-
port the distribution of the stickers
by Pants.
Gator's platform includes mov-
ing course materials onto WebCT
and letting students choose the
speakers Accent will bring on cam-
pus. Moseley said he is passionate
about the platform goal to improve
funding for Kaleidoscope Month, a
celebration of Asian culture..
Three referendums were also
on the ballot, with two passing and
one failing. The Renewable Energy
Fee passed with 78 percent of the
vote and a proposed student-run
homeless shelter failed with only
35 percent of the vote. A Student
Body constitutional amendment to
add--"gender identity and expres-
sion" to the nondiscrimination

Gator wins

Was there ever really a

doubt?
W e were so sure about this one, we could have called it
before the elections took place. But this time we think
they deserve it.
Still, we secretly wanted to submit cool animal names as
write-in candidates okapi, penguin, giraffe, magical lio-
pleurodon because we think it would be more fun to have
a veritable menagerie instead of a congregation of Gators.
But the Gator Party swept the election, so that's what we'll
have.
The new senators will be installed in a few weeks, and the
executive candidates will take over at the end of the semester.
We'll be expecting the Gator Party to show us what they've
got. We endorsed the party because of its experience. We en-
dorsed it because of its capabilities. So Gator, start putting your
platform ideas into place. Get the prep work out of the way.
Don't waste any of your time.
And make sure students.don't regret their decision to vote
for you.
And even though Student Government drama makes for
great news, we sincerely hope for a drama-free SG.
Please, Gator: no resignations, no fallouts, no midterm
crises. We understand that back-patting and resum&-padding
will take place. Just don't forget that you are representing 48,000
students.
You told us that your platform is completely feasible and
100 percent attainable, and we expect results. But although
it's important to be realistic with your platform, we also think
you shouldn't be afraid to create some innovative, longer-term
goals.
Ryan Moseley: Get those CD course packs online. Manage
time efficiently. Don't let your BlackBerry control your life.
Remember, you are a student first and a politiciansecond. -.
Vanessa Goodwvin: -hake up the Cabinet. Talk about
streamlining has gone on for years, but it seems like nothing
ever gets done now's the time to make a difference. You
spoke at the debate about making the Cabinet directors more
accessible to student leaders around campus. Make sure you
see that through.
E.J. Walicki: $12 million is in your hands. Spend it wisely.
Fulfill your campaign promises, and allocate funds for student
organizations appropriately. Once that money's gone, it ain't
coming back. We've seen how passionate you are about SG in
meetings and interviews. Now make sure the whole student
body realizes it.
And finally, fresh-faced senators: Remember who you rep-
resent. Talk to your constituents. Get important stuff done on
Tuesday nights. It's not all about meaningless resolutions con-
gratulating sports teams. And it's not about tossing back those
beers afterward at The Swamp Restaurant in your cute little
suits. It's about making UF a better place for students.
The Alligator broke tradition by backing the Gator Party. We
are willing to give the party the benefit of the doubt, and we'll
give it a ocean slate. But don't let that make you complacent,
Gator. We will not back off from judging you or calling you
out on your mistakes that's the whole purpose of watchdog
journalism.
We look forward to a year of progress and efficiency from
the Gator Party. We hope it keeps its promises and we hope
we can write more good things about SG than bad in this space
over the next year.

-Column l

Alcohol-law loophole may soon be shut


bove the whisper of the Ying Yang Twins' "Wait,"
yotr hear a loud rapping on the front door. You're
20 years old. A blue plastic cup filled with an
amber liquid is in your left hand. Chad, one of your
bros, yells, "Police! Police! Turn the music off! Police!"
Fellow partygoers scramble for bathrooms and closets.
The music cuts off right before the lyric, "Wait 'til you
see my..."
At this point you place your cup down casually and
wait. Thankfully, the police can't arrest you for consump-
tion, only for possession. And by ditching the cup, you've
taken care of the latter. You're protected by a loophole in
Florida's law but one that may soon be plugged by the
Florida Senate.
A stricter drinking law has been proposed in the state
Senate, aiming to make consumption illegal for underage
drinkers meaning that a breathalyzer test could lead
to arrest. UF should take a stand against this law and so
should its student body.
Officer Darin Gentry' of the University Police
Department said Tuesday in an Alligator article, "It's
kind of silly that you have to be in possession of (alco-
hol), even if it's in your system."
It's also silly that someone can legally die in a war for
this country and not legally drink a beer. The original
lawmakers made it intentionally silly, because they too
were once under 21.
It's the new lawmakers and enforcers I wonder about.
Were they born as sober, middle-aged men and women?
The Florida Senate seems to provide evidence in favor of
the affirmative. Haven't they ever had a Natty?
Underage students will not stop drinking because of a
stricter law, but added police resources will be necessary
for conducting 100 breathalyzer tests at every broken-up


party, wasting time and money.
The bill also allows police to
charge a person if his or her "nor-
mal faculties are impaired." The
absurd subjectivity in that judg-
ment will no doubt lead to petty
Todd PortnowitZ court cases and more wasted time
letters@alligator.org and money.
When I studied abroad in
Rome last summer, I got a taste of life with no restricted
drinking age and it tasted like fermented grapes and
malted grain. I enjoyed wine with dinner. I drank a cold
Irish cream ale while watching the FIFA World Cup.
For a country with no legal drinking age even their
"bambini" drink wine diluted with water Italy has no-
where near the drinking problem we have in the United
States. Its children are exposed to alcohol early, and they
learn that it's no big deal when not abused. For them,
every glass of beer doesn't feel like the Holy Grail.
We have'here a case of forbidden fruit. The mechan-
ics are fairly simple: The more the authorities forbid the
consumption of alcohol, the more barbaric our behavior
will be when we get ahold of the elixir. Look what hap-
pened during Prohibition. It's the same reason so many
girls who go to Catholic high schools end up knee-deep
in cocaine.
It's about time someone in lawmaking land realizes
that education and exposure work much better at con-
trolling behavior than punishment and restriction.
Why waste money and resources to punish the action
when, instead, you can alter the mindset that provoked
it?
Todd Portnowitz is a junior majoring in English. His col-
umn appears on Wednesdays.

Letters to the 7.
Gator Nation part, not all, of Gainesville
I am writing this letter in response to the
Dan Burroughs column, "Homeless deserve
more than UF gives." First, Burroughs has
an inside-out view of the way our univer-
sity should interact with Gainesville. As the
Gator Nation ads say, UP is in Gainesville
- it is not Gainesville.
UF's administration is accountable first
and foremost for its students. This situa-
tion has nothing to do with the apathetic
or judgmental attitudes of students toward
the homeless community at large but has
everything to do with a helpful sentiment's
misdirection.
The homeless community of Gainesville,
if aided by the public sector, will need the
support of city and county governments. I
sympathize with the homeless and notice
their presence in this town. But when it
comes to spending tuition money -and
yes, I do pay for my own school, unlike
Burroughs' sweeping assumptions about
student dependence on matters incon-
sequential to my education, I feel the need
to contest.
Dante Lima

Supporting homeless cause is selfish
In response to Dan Burroughs' column
about the homeless: Who cares? I'm sick
and tired of being told about my respon-
sibility to the homeless. I don't have any.
But apparently, we Americans care so
much about aiding and civilizing the rest
of the world that we don't help those here


at home.
Look at the people of Sudan and Iraq.
They've dealt with oppressive dictators
and had no choice in their lot in life.
A panhandler who hit me up for money
today told me that the dollar I offered him
"wasn't enough." If you want to go help
the homeless, then nobody's stopping you.
Go do it.
But stop acting like the rest of us need to
chip in to make you feel better about your-
self and your charitable cause.

Gator Party endorsement irresponsible
I am disappointed with the Alligator
for its irresponsible endorsement of the
Greek Party and all its former incarna-
tions. Why would a student-run newspaper
support such a select and selective few? Its
endorsement contributes to a strange Gator
washing machine that spins the idealistic
efforts of the independent Pants Party into
dirty laundry.
Why' has the Alligator not chosen to
inform the student body of the real poli-
tics behind 'the well-oiled machine? This
Student Government administration has
not been a proactive one in the name of the
students, nor was the one before it, and so
on.Why would Gator be different? I assume
that tonight the Gator/Greek party will
claim victory. Kudos.

'I Voted' stickers not voter suppression
I'm writing regarding Wednesday's
article, "Gator backer files charges against
Pants." Gator Party supporter John Clayton
Brett's antics are but one spoke on the
wheel of voter apathy. Have we become a
nation of spoiled brats where someone has
to be filed suit against? Get on the reality
train.
Where do those SG campaigners get the
time to idle? For some reason, they aren't
rushing to and from class. For those of us
rushing from Anderson to McCarty Hall,
we don't care what you're selling.
I applaud William Foster. Well done, sir.
He gave average students an opportunity
to be left alone from unwanted incursions
into whatever they want left alone. This
is voter suppression? Hardly. It's bullshit
suppression. Just because someone got an
"I Voted" sticker early doesn't mean he or
she won't vote later it says "Go Away!"
more politely. Besides, politicians should be
used to obfuscatipn and mincing words.
Dave Fasano
UFalumnus



SG must take voting privacy seriously
On the front page of Wednesday's
Alligator, I saw a picture of students voting
at Weimer Hall. I noticed the voting booths
were facing a direction where anyone who
wanted to could walk behind voters and
see whom they were voting for. I saw this
on the first floor of Turlington Hall as well.
The purpose of a voting booth is to give
the voter privacy, so they should be placed


sideways. The fact that we do not do this
on campus only adds to the superficiality
of the Student G elections that students are
constantly told are so important.

College Republicans BBQ disrespectful
The UF College Republicans held a bar-
becue Wednesday called the PETA "People
Eating Tasty Animals" barbecue. How very
clever. Better yet, they set up right next
to the vegetarian Krishna Lunch. When a
student declined the food at the barbecue
because she is a vegetarian, she was told,
"That's horrible."
How much more disrespectful can we
get? Of course "PETA" has a right to serve
meat, but making a mockery out of the real
PETA People for the Ethical Treatment
of Animals and insulting vegetarianism
like it's a sin goes too far.
Here's a disclaimer: I eat meat some-
times, and I think it's tasty. However, I
realize that the meat industry pollutes our
waterways with animal waste more than
any other industry, uses a colossal amount
of resources and causes severe erosion of
farmlands and forests. Vegetarians, PETA
and the Hare Krishnas are actually doing
good for the world.
But, screw them, let's eat some more
cow.

WILL AFFORD I AVENUE WRITER


I think I may have hit a wormhole.
A few minutes ago I was passing hotels
and convenience stores on SW 13th Street. But
now I am parking in the grass about 100 yards
from stables and grazing horses.
I get in line to enter what looks like a heli-
copter hangar with a dirt floor and no walls.
The rapidly cooling dusk air is thick with the
scent of smoked sausage.
This is the 24th-annual Wild Game Dinner,
.a fundraising feast held by the'Wildlife
Society.
The stars of this dinner include alligator,
python, deer, buffalo, shark and opossum.
About 300 people are here, from children
still in strollers to a man with a thick white
beard dressed in suspenders and carrying a
cane. To the naked eye, this could be a family
reunion in Texas.
After eating a zoo's worth of animals, I
come to this conclusion: Every animal tastes
the same with enough salt and barbecue
sauce.
"Honestly, most meat tastes alike," said
Joshua Watson, a cook for the feast.
Watson helped cook the python, which
came from the Everglades. When raw, he said


it looked like intestine and had the texture of
tire rubber.
But the dinner is just the warm-up.
A table with eight animal skulls invites
onlookers to take the "Skull Quiz" and guess
which skull belongs to what animal.
Ramsey Hammers is in charge of the
grand finale tonight. Under his eggshell-
white suitjackethe's wearing a white button-
up Western shirt and a bolo with turquoise
beads. On his head is a brown cowboy hat,
and his leather belt proudly displays his fist-
sized, silver-and-turquoise belt buckle.
Hammers, the square-dance caller, turns
on his record player.
"Get yourself a girl, build us a big circle
right here," he says into the microphone.
He sings "do, do, do, do, dee, do" over the
bouncy country string music while instruct-
ing people how to do-si-do.
As the cloud of dust rises from the 26
people turning to their partners, I walk away
from the beast-feast barn dance.
Hopping over a chest-high wood-plank
fence to get to my car, I make the five-minute
trek away from the moonlit stables and back
to city life.


UK famed for ale


As college students, our enthusiasm
about beer often exceeds our knowledge.
To help rectify the situation, I'm going
to shine a light on some of the more
important beer-producing countries. As
the saying goes, life is too short to drink
cheap beer.
This week, I'll focus on England.
Il start with the basics. Ales and
lagers comprise the two broadest catego-
ries of beer. Lagers taste crisp and dean,
a result of fermentation in cold tempera-
tures; while ales are generally fruitier.
England's beer community primarily
produces and consumes ales.
Above all, England is a land of tradi-
tion. In a world that has long since been
given over to lagers; this country re-
mains a staunch supporter of ales, many
of which have a rich history. Take, for in-
stance, the India pale ale, or IPA. Brewed.
in England, this beer was fortified to be
able to withstand the long journey to
troops stationed in colonial India.
IPAs are characterized by their bright,
floral aroma, thirst-quenching bitter-


ness and
medium to
high alco-
hol content.
American TOM HARRIS
versions tend to be sharp and citrus, but
the original English type is more round-
ed and almost grassy in its vibrancy
Another venerable' English style is
the brown ale. This mellow, sweeter ale
is often characterized by a slight biscuit
nuttiness that gives it its common name,
the nut brown.
Two styles that are often confused for
one another, even by brewers, are the
porter and the stout. Both ales are dark
- almost black. However, porters derive
their bitterness from floral hops, while
stouts have more of a coffee-like bitter-
ness from highly roasted malted barley
Like all beer-producing giants, the
wealth and variety found in England can
be staggering. For an easy entry point
- and a consistent, all-around solid
English brewery Samuel Smith's is an
excellent choice.

BRIAN KELLEY I AVENUE WRITER


ric Atria runs a recording
studio because of a love for
the Gainesville music scene, not for
monetary gain.
Orange Records of Gainesville
is a nonprofit record label that
aims to provide local bands with
the means to produce high-quality
records at minimal cost.


"It started with our band,"
said Atria, bassist for local band
Momingbell. "Every single ele-
ment we did ourselves it came
out of proceeds from our shows."
Other members of the band
include Travis Atria on guitar and
lead vocals, Stacie Thrushman on
keyboards and Jake McMullen


Anarew ,danTIII I /Aligaior
Inuit jargon, pictured above, will be opening for Morningbell at
its album release party Saturday at The Atlantic.


on drums. The band formed in
December of 2000.
Morningbell purchased all of
the Orange Records recording
equipment with revenue generated
from live performances.
The band members first re-
corded their own music, but Atria
soon branched out to record other
local bands.
"The first band that I worked
with that wasn't Morningbell was
Inuit Jargon. We had a great time
making their first record last year,"
he said.
In order to make everything of-
ficial when recording Inuit Jargon,
Atria came up with the idea of
starting his own label thus,
Orange Records was born.


a ban that plays a umque blend of
acoustic comedy rock, consists of
Shaun Spalding, Andrew Celauro
and Matt Ruecker. The band
formed -under unique circum-
stances involving a RadioShack
microphone, a birthday party and
no present.
Needless to say, the quality of
the recording they created was
terrible, said Spalding, the band's
vocalist.
The band's name was picked on
a whim when creating the birthday
CD. "Inuit Jargon" comes from a
random selection of words that ap-
peared on two screens at a concert
of the band The Faint.
Eventually, Atria heard the
band's recording and invited the
group to play a show.
Eager to take advantage of the
new opportunity, the band mem-
bers struggled to remember songs
they had made up on the spot.
"Eric was really helpful. We
really wanted to impress him,"
Spalding said.


on Orange cords include Inuit
Jargon, ...and this is my odyssey
and The Good Land.


The Good Land is a one-man
acoustic folk act with calm, sooth-
ing music reminiscent of Elliott
Smith, while ...and this is my od-
yssey is a progressive funk group
whose tunes are characterized by
prominent bass-driven riffs.
"Their music is really catchy but
weird and eclectic," Atria said.
At a glance, there appears to be
no rhyme or reason as to what type
of band is typical on the label.
"Some of the bands were just
friends we worked with. Some of
them, though, I just really liked
their music," Atria said.
With the level of talent and
local support commanded by
Momingbell, the band could easily
move on to a larger record label.
But the band members care about
the music, not the money.
"At this level, the only stuff
a larger label would do for us is
stuff we are already doing for
ourselves," Atria said. "We're
publicizing it ourselves, recording
it ourselves, mixing it ourselves.
This way, we don't have to sign
away some of our musical rights to
somebody else for no reason."
Atria is proud of the fact that the
cost of recording a single song at
Orange Records is only about $50.
"I want to treat people how I
want to be treated," he said. "I want
it to come out how I and they think
it should sound. I do it because it's
fun; I do it to help bands out."


recent compleedThrough the
Belly of the Sea," the third full-
length release since 2004.
The album is an ambitious en-
deavor to create a "Choose-Your-
Own-Adventure" album, inviting
listeners to actively participate
while enjoying the music. The con-
cept is based on the "Choose Your
Own Adventure" book series a
childhood favorite among mem-
bers of the band.
The idea is fairly simple. The
listener follows along in the CD


booklet, and as each track comes to
a dose, the intrepid explorer must
determine which track to proceed
to.
In this way, the listener is al-
lowed to choose how the story
develops.
"It came out pretty good, if I
can say that," Atria said. "You can
basically listen to it as is, but the
idea was we wanted friends to get
together and kind of choose their
own path."
"Through the Belly of the Sea"
reveals a more mature, artistically
focused Morningbell. Although the
choose-your-own-adventure al-
bum is not the first of its kind in the
music world, the idea is definitely a
first for Momingbell.
But faithful fans need not worry
- the band has not strayed from its
original sound.
"It's just a lot of progression,"
Atria said. "I don't think anyone
will listen to it and say, 'Wow,
what the hell did they do?' Also,
we've played a lot of the songs live
already."
Whether you choose to fol-
low it like a story or just listen
to it straight through, the album
flows remarkably well. The music
is relaxing, euphonic like the
soundtrack to a reverie.
Morningbell is celebrating
the album release in a "CD Pre-
Lease" show Saturday night at The
Atlantic. The show promises some
new additions to Moringbell's
famed "$100 light show," a spec-
tacle that essentially consists of
a few hundred dollars TW'rth of
Christmas and strobe lights. The al-
terations are the first major changes
made to the display in about two
years.
The show will also feature the
musical talents of local bands Inuit
Jargon, Oh No! and the Tiger Pit
and the Umoja Orchestra.
"I'm just very proud to be able
to contribute to the Gainesville
music resum6 on a consistent ba-
sis," Atria said.


Local Grooveshark.com provides legal downloading


DAVID LOW I AVENUE WRITER


Napster inventor Shawn Fanning,
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and
Google tycoons Larry Page and Sergey
Brin have one thing in common they
were all in college when they created their
brainchild Web programs.
One UF student hopes to join their pres-
tigious ranks.
Sam Tarantino, a UF economics sopho-
more, is the chief executive officer and
founder of his own Gainesville-based
company, Escape Media Group.
Last February, he began developing
Grooveshark.com, an online service intent
on perfecting .peer-to-peer music down-
loading.
"My ultimate goal is for people to be
able to have any song, anywhere, anytime,
anyplace," he said.
His hopes may soon be realized.
Grooveshark is looking to go public by the
beginning of April.
Tarantino wasn't always so confident.
At first, he didn't want concern himself


with the logistics of music downloads. He
wanted to be the one creating the music.
"I wanted to be a musician," he said.
"But then I sat down and realized it's
too hard and that the industry is totally
screwed up."
Tarantino soon looked at the state of
music sharing and concluded it was too
complex. He found

new music, he said.
"At first, I thought,
'What can I do? I'm 20,'" he said. "But
then I looked at Zuckerberg and the
YouTube guys."
Tarantino took his initial ideas for
Grooveshark and reached out to his eco-
nomics professors for guidance and advice
on the business end of things.
UF Professor William J. Rossi helped
whip the bare-bones plans into a fleshed-


I

out enterprise by asking Tarantino ques-
tions and weeding out indecisiveness.
"He would start answering, 'I think,"'
Rossi said. "I would say, 'Sam, go away.
Come back when you have it figured out
for sure.'"
Tarantino took his advice and kept at
the project with feverish persistence, go-
ing back and forth to him

Founder f love when that happens.
He walked the walk."
With an economic map
of where he wanted to go with the project,
Tarantino began building a team to bring
the features of Grooveshark to life.
Grooveshark's interactivity separates it
from other downloading services, he said.
Users can browse and download music for
99 cents or less, write reviews, follow what
artists are doing and recommend music to
other users.


Users also get rewarded.
According to the Grooveshark Web site,
a consumer receives a set percentage of the
proceeds from each song he or she buys,
which can be used to buy more songs, con-
cert tickets or artist merchandise.
Even if a patron simply writes reviews
or recommends music to others, he or she
is entered in a ranking of priority for com-
pensation, which is based on frequency of
usage.
Ease in finding music is also important
to Tarantino.
Basing ideals on Google's organization
of content on the Internet, he makes the
analogy that Google is to the Internet what
Grooveshark is to music.
Grooveshark also plans to expand to
the mobile market in the future, making
songs available for download on devices
like the iPhone.
Rossi said he thinks Tarantino has cre-
ated something that can really make a dif-
ference.
"This is where my heart's at," Tarantino
said. "It's my baby."

UF WOMEN'S TENNIS

No. 3 Gators edge Seminoles with strong singles play


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Writer

The UF women's tennis team
earned a tougher-than-expected win
Wednesday afternoon, defeating
Florida State 4-3.
C6ach Roland Thornqvist was
worried about the inconsistency of
his doubles teams, and his fears rang
true against the Seminoles (6-2).
The No. 3 Gators (9-0) lost the
doubles point for only the second
time this season.
No. 2 pair Diana Srebrovic and
Megan Alexander won 8-4, but the
No. 1 team of Whitney Benik and
Nina Suvak, ranked No. 20 nation-


ally, lost their third straight match
8-4.
No. 3 tandem Anastasia Revzina
and Csilla Borsanyi could not find
their mark away from home, los-
ing 8-3.
"No. 2 doubles is playing great,"
Thornqvist said. "No. 1 doubles
still needs to find their aggressive
ways."
During the intermission, before
singles play, Thomqvist reminded
his team that they'd been in this po-
sition against Miami on Feb. 18.
UF rebounded from losing the
doubles point to win 4-3 against the
Hurricanes.
Benik, struggling of late, evened


"No. 1 doubles still needs
to find their aggressive
ways."
Roland Thornqvist
UF women's tennis coach

the score when she quickly defeated
Carolin Walter 6-1, 6-3.
"It's the best I've seen her play
all spring," Thorqvist said. "The
fact that she got off the court, that
quickly changed (the momentum)
for all of us."
A 6-4, 6-4 loss by junior Diana
Srebrovic and a 7-5, 6-3 win by
Anastasia Revzina kept the score


even.
Another grind-it-out 6-4. 7-6 (0)
win by senior Nina Suvak helped
Sput UF in a position to clinch the
match.
"(Nina) has learned that there are
ups and downs and swings to mo-
mentum," Thomqvist said. "She's
doing such a good job. We wouldn't
be where we are this season without
Nina."
Freshman Megan Alexander
clinched the dualmatch with a 6-3,7-
5 victory against Ania Rynarzewska.
Freshman Csilla Borsanyi lost a
tough three-set match to Lauren
Macfarlane.
Borsanyi lost the first set 6-4, but


answered back with a 6-2 second-
set win. Macfarlane took thw match
with a 6-3 third set.
"(Csilla) changed her tactics in
the second set and won it fairly eas-
ily," Thornqvist said. "She started
hitting again (in the third set), which
she had got out of in the second
set."
The freshmen looked ou4of sync
at times playing in their first match
away from the friendly confines of
Ring Tennis Complex.
"In doubles, (the freshmen)
didn't play very well," Thomqvist
said. "You could tell it was a new
environment for them. They re-
grouped pretty well in singles."


Caricatures create


bond with team


SWANSON, from page 20

he said.
Richmond offered a scholarship and playing
time. UF offered a walk-on spot with no guaran-
tee of minutes. -
The Gators won out, and Swanson began don-
ning the No. 1 jersey. Senior Chris'Richard said he
has a lot of admiration for Swanson's dedication.
"I don't think I'd be able to do it," Richard
said. "Day in and day out, practice just as hard as
anybody and have to know all the-plays in three
different positions and do that everyday knowing
I won't have the chance to play that's kind of
tough."
Swanson, a perfectionist according to his fa-
ther, works equally as hard in his studies.
As a digital arts and sciences major, Swanson
is bogged down with courses like physics and
calculus. But he has found ways to have some
fun with his talents. During summer workouts,
Swanson, a pretty decent artist,
drew a caricature of Richard
which emphasized the for-
ward's signature braids per
his teammates'request.
"It turned into whoever got
.. drawn picked the next guy to
be drawn," Swanson said.
Swan So Richard picked Joakim
wanson Noah, and for this sketch,,
Swanson used one of Noah's favorite possessions
as a prop.
While the junior's dorm was being repainted,
the Gators took one of Noah's African masks,
hung it up on one of the team's whiteboards, and
Swanson drew a body resembling the 7-footer
underneath it. The other Gators quickly caught.
on that there was a flaw with their system of
choosing no one was ever going to be able to
pick Swanson.
"I told them they're going to have to find
someone to draw me," Swanson said. "They still
haven't."
While some of his teammates will go on to the
NBA or to Europe and continue playing after col-
lege, Swanson will qualify for jobs like creating
Pixar movies. His time at UF was short-lived, but
Swanson's experience of playing on a national
championship team is something that will stay
with him forever.
"He called me one day and said, 'Dad, I really
believe I've become the best player I can be. I've
reached my potential here,'" Paul said. "I told
him, If you can look in the mirror and say that,
there's nothing better.'"

WOMEN'S, from page20 -


in overtime.
And the Gators nearly upset the Bulldogs
last time, only losing by 5 points Feb. 11.
"My expectations are to win, to win the
SEC Championship," Brooks said. "If we play
like we played (Sunday) and then carry it into
(tonight), Friday and Saturday, however long it
takes to get there."
It would be easy for them to throw in the
towel, but Peck has never let them do that.
She has said many times this season that,
after a disappointing loss, she brings her team
in and shows them what they did well through
game tape. However, Peck's never had to ask
for more effort. Center Briana Phillips has dealt
with injuries ranging from
her back to her ankles. Brooks
has played with a torn left
meniscus in her knee, and,
Women's according to Dotson via
Basketball Peck, has a sore butt, too.
Kim Dye's foot is hurt.
"They don't use it as an
excuse," Peck said. "They keep coming back
the next day and I step on the floor and I'll ask
them, 'How's your foot today?' T'm alright.'
They don't want to come out, they don't want
it to stop. Their determination and their fight,
you just can't even put it into words; the ap-
preciation for what they're sacrificing and how
hard they're working for us."
But still, that effort hasn't resulted in wins.
Even though the Gators have won two of three,
they started out the conference season with 11
straight losses. Coming off an emotional up-
swing, though, the Gators are confident.
"As we've seen in many SEC Tournaments,
there's always one team that comes in and
surprises people," Peck said. "Why can't that
be us?"


OUT LOUD, from page 20


"I feel good," Noah said. "I feel like I'm not 100 percent
yet. Running and stuff like that I'm tired a lot. ... Once I
get my second breath I'm alright."
Either way, Noah looked fine until recently, and it's puz-
zling that complications from the ailment wouldn't hit him
until now.
I'm not saying UF's recent lack of success should be
pinned on Noah.
He may not be the player that's struggling the most.
Point guard Taurean Green is 3 for 24 from the field in
the last three games, and Donovan replaced him with walk-
on Brett Swanson on defense against LSU.
But Noah is the heart of the team.
Your car runs on gasoline; the Gators run on Noah's
tenacity.
Last year, Noah exploded for 37 points to snap a three-
game losing streak, and he kept up the dominant pace until

cutting down the nets in Indianapolis.
In 11 games, Noah went from that guy with the name
that no one knew how to pronounce to a college basketball
icon.
Riding Noah, the Gators went from that team that
couldn't win in March to the envy of college basketball.
Noah's run began around this time in 2006, and the
Gators need a similar performance to stay on top in 2007.
There are no more road games left for the Gators no
more "ugly" chants, no more home calls to go against him.
All that's left is March when college basketball play-
ers make history.
And how could you not root for him?
Not only is he a nice guy, but he is a refreshing personal-
ity in the bland world of college athletics.
Who else is going to tell you that winning a champion-
ship is "better than sex?"
The next few weeks may determine whether you'll
someday be strolling down Joakim Noah Road on hie way
to the O'Connell Center, or if that trip may be nothing more
than a drive down memory lane..

He comes in before practice.
He stays after practice.
He sweats, runs, dribbles, passes and shoots until
he's exhausted, only to go home and study another three
hours for his digital arts and sciences degree.
And he's done it all for the chance to play 88 career
minutes in a Gators uniform.
Come Sunday aftemoon, senior walk-on Brett
Swanson will say goodbye to the place that made his
dreams come true.
"You plan out your goals when you're 12: play
Division I and all the way down
here win national championship,"
Swanson said. "You think about all the
great players, even in the NBA, who
S Men's don't have that. You're like, 'Wow.
Basketball That's special.'"
BaSetbll The son of a college basketball
coach, Swanson was bom into the
sport. A ball would lie next to him in his crib while he
slept at night.
A former Northwestern ball boy, Swanson always
dreamed of playing at a Division I school.
While still in high school, the guard attended prac-
tices at Pensacola Junior College, where his father, Paul,
coached.
"I don't know if any of you guys ever played for your
dad, but its not the easiest thing in the world," Swanson
said. "When I was in high school, I'd be up there playing
with the college guys, and he's yelling at me and I'm not
even on the team."
The experience paid off when Swanson joined his
father for three years at the junior college.
Swanson earned Second Team All-Panhandle
Conference honors in 2005 and two opportunities to
taff play at Division I schools: Richmond and UF.
J's "I wouldn't be at this level if it wasn't for (my dad),"

Noah only a.shadow of former explosive self


Where have you gone, Joakim
Noah?
You've gone from a candi-
date for national player of the year to an
afterthought for Southeastern Conference
POY honors.
You've gone from being possibly the
No. 1 overall pick in the draft to maybe
not even the first pick among UF juniors.
Dick Vitale, unaware that he was on
live radio, said UF coach Billy Donovan
told him scouts would make a mistake by
rating Noah ahead of Al Horford.
Vitale said the comments were in jest,
and Donovan denied the conversation
ever took place.
Regardless, Noah's draft stock is fall-


ing, if not plung-
ing.
On Tuesday,
scouts were treated
to a slow, weak and
frustrated Noah
Bryan Jones a look that is be-
Bryan Out Loud coming a trend.
bjones@alligator.org In a -marvel-
ous display of
brilliance and creativity, Tennessee fans
chanted "Noah's ugly" ad nauseum.
Lately, that's exactly what Noah is.
Six points on 2-of-10 shooting against
South Carolina ugly.
Four points and three rebounds against
LSU ugly.
Not scoring in the first half against


Tennessee? Being held to single digits in
three of the last five games?
Ugly.
Weren't they going to name Museum
Road after this guy?
I have to wonder if something is wrong
with Noah.
He has always had fatigue issues be-
cause he plays the game at two speeds:
full blast and stop.
Lately, that has morphed into plodding
and wheezing.
While Noah said he is still slightly af-
fected by the upper respiratory infection
-he suffered early this season, he recently
admitted he feels fine.

They'll never forget her smile.
Yes, it's been a horrific season for
the UF women's basketball team.
Yes, Coach Carolyn Peck got axed
more than two weeks ago.
Yes, three players left the team
during winter break, and the Gators
only have nine left on the roster and
one over 6-feet tall. But at this point,
who cares?
"Where should I start?," said lead-
ing scorer Sha Brooks of the coaching
staff. "Their attitude, and them being
so positive, it re-
flects on us. There
are certain times
we may want to
give up, but we
look at the coaches
and none of the
coaches gave up on
Peck us. They continue
on to fight just like
we are. It just gives us a positive at-
titude and we feed off that."
Throughout nearly every loss,
Peck would keep smiling.
Freshman Jennifer Mossor ad-
mitted that her coach is like a "Miss
Sunshine." When Peck's squad faces
off against Mississippi State tonight
in the first round of the Southeastern
Conference Tournament, it could be
her final game on the sideline for UF
The game starts at 9:30 in Duluth, Ga.
UF's next loss will end the team's
season and Peck's five-year stint.
"They don't want this season to be
over," Peck said via teleconference.
"They're playing hard now for each
other and for the coaches. You can just
tell with the heart they played with
(on Sunday against Kentucky). I just
don't want this to end."
It might not, either. The Gators
(8-21, 2-12 SEC) have won two of
three, and the Bulldogs have lost two
of three. UF is coming off one of the
most emotional wins in program his-
tory on Senior Day against Kentucky
four days ago. Mississippi State (17-
12,7-7 SEC) just lost at South Carolina
