Concrete collapse injures none, draws laughs
By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@Clligator.org


"It looked like the whole building was falling
down," said a University Copy employee who wit-
nessed the front concrete awning come crashing down
at about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.
The employee, who asked to remain anonymous,
said he was on break outside and rushed back to the
store when he saw the facade collapse.
"Nobody looked really concerned," he
said. "People were just kind of-laughing."

The awning in front of University Copy off of West University Avenue lies on the ground in pieces Tuesday afternoon. The
cause of the collapse is still unknown.

The Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity will ap-
peal UF's decision to suspend the fraterni-
ty's recognition as a campus organization
for four years, said acting President Patrick
Duffey.
The notice of appeal will be filed with
Florida's First District Court of Appeals
today, but the case may not be heard until
early fall.
The fraternity, known as Pike, was
found guilty Feb. 2 by Gene Zdziarski,
UF's dean of students, of hosting an un-
registered party and committing actions

individual or group."
Pike appealed Zdziarski's decision to
Ainsley Carry, UF's assistant vice presi-
dent, but Carry upheld the decision on
April 18.
Carry was the last person with the
power to pardon Pike in UF's
Greek appealsprocess.
Life Duffey said he thought it
was premature to comment
on the appeal or its costs.
Pike alumni are paying for the appeal,
he said.
Meanwhile, Duffey said he hopes to
work with UF on his settlement proposal,
which will include revised bylaws on dif-
ferent aspects of fraternity activities, such
as the pledging process.
During the appeals process, Pike
members will not be allowed to live in the
house, he said.

A UF graduate student was found dead
in his apartment Tuesday.
James Wu, a 23-year-old biomedical
engineering student, was found in his
Southwest 10th Street apartment by his
parents, Gainesville Police Department
spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg said.
His parents were driving up from their
home in Coral Springs to check up on him,
Kameg said.
"This appeared to be self-inflicted," he
said.
According to Wu's biography on his
graduate program's Web site, he received

lions in income reports
WASHINGTON-Republican presidential can-
didate Rudy Giuliani reported a whopping $16.1
million in earned income over the past 16 months,
most of it in speaking fees, according to financial
documents filed Wednesday. Democratic hopeful
John Edwards reported earned income of $1.25 mil-
lion, the biggest single source of which was a hedge
fund that employed him part time. He and his wife,
Elizabeth, reported $29.5 million in assets.

crimes as summer

Neal Mackowiak, an SFCC sophomore, said he was
next to the building just after everything literally went
down.
"Nobody looked really concerned," he said.
"People were just kind of laughing."
Mackowiak said even the few people who were
trapped inside the store by fallen debris that was block-
ing the doorway seemed nonchalant.
No one was injured at Tuesday's topple.
Pete Getter, corporate secretary of University Copy,
said he's not sure what caused the awning to crumble.
The building has been standing since the mid-1960s,
he said.
On Wednesday some debris was cleared so custom-
ers could come inside the store, Oetter said.
But he said he's not worried about any other part of
the building falling apart.

Italian teens to visit


By AMRITHA ALLADI
Alligator Contributing Writer

Thirty-four Italian students
will visit Gainesville this summer
through Education First's Homestay
Programs to improve their English
skills and learn about American
culture.
The group of Italian teenag-
ers will stay with local volunteer
families from July 7 to Aug. 3 to
take grammar and culture classes,
,which will immerse the students in
American lifestyles, music, fashion
and dating.
"Students all over the world want
to improve their English-speaking
skills," said Maryann True, manager
for Florida's Homestay Programs.
"The best way to do that is to im-
merse them in American culture and
keep them with English-speaking
families."
True said many Europeans are


tested on their knowledge of English
after they complete grade school.
Their performance on the exam de-
termines acceptance into universities
and the workforce.
Homestay Programs is a non-
profit division of Education First and
began 40 years ago, True said. This
year, 1,200 students will visit Florida,
compared to 700 students from last
year.
Multicultural True said the
Affairs program looks
for families to
open up their hearts and homes to
a student.
"It's a great opportunity," True
said. "We've got retired couples,
single-parent homes and even
young couples."
True said some families even go
overseas to visit their student.
"They really do become a part
of your life," True said. "It's a lot of
fun."


UF PROJECTS

Kissinger to speak on UF film


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Henry Kissinger, former secretary of state
under Richard Nixon, will give the opening
remarks at the UF Documentary Institute's
screening of "Angel of Ahlem" at Lincoln
Center in New York City tonight.
The documentary follows Vernon Tott, a
dying World War II veteran, as he searches for
Holocaust survivors that he photographed at
the liberation of a slave labor camp in Germany
60 years earlier.
Tott and Kissinger were both members of
the Army's 84th Infantry that helped liberate
the Ahlem concentration camp in April of 1945.
Kissinger and Tott arrived a few days apart.
"This is a very special thing for the survivors
of the camp because Kissinger represents the
liberators," said Churchill Roberts, co-director
of the institute. "It'll be quite an emotional mo-
ment for them."
Kissinger will not be paid to give his speech.
He and Tott never knew each other, but when
Tott discovered Kissinger was in the same Army
division, Tott wrote him a letter, Roberts said.
He also included copies of his photographs.


In Kissinger's letter back to Tott, he thanked
him for the opportunity to see his work.
He said, "(Liberating the camp) was one of
the most horrifying experiences of my life, but
as terrible as the photos and the stories of the
survivors are, you have also assembled an im-
portant historical document."
Tott spent the last 10 years
of his life searching for survi-
vors. He died during the
making, of the documentary.
"It's not a historical film,"
said Sandra Dickson, the
institute's other co-director.
"It's a focus on his journey,
Kissinger his search."
Faculty from the institute
worked on the 90-minute documentary for
more than three years.
Roberts said close to 350 people have re-
sponded to the invitations, but the venue holds
only about 275.
After the screening, members of the institute
plan to enter the documentary into film festi-
vals and hope to have it broadcast nationally,
Dickson said.
He added that the institute is planning to
show the film in Gainesville in the fall.

Nibbling gets nod at Library West this summer


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

When you're studying, you might hunger
for more than just knowledge.
But now, thanks to a pilot project at Library
West, students no longer have to abandon
their vigilant study sessions to sneak a snack.
This summer, the library will allow patrons
to eat small snacks, such as granola bars, chips
and candy, or small fruits and vegetables in-
side the building.


Covered drinks are also still allowed.
"I think it'll be looked at favorably unless it
starts to get really messy," said Barbara Hood,
the public information officer for the library.
"We're hoping that the housekeeping staff will
be able to keep up."
Previously, all food had to be eaten in the
study area near Starbucks on the first floor.
Hot entrees, salads, pizza and any other
"messy or odorous" foods are still not allowed
inside, according to a library press release.
Food may not be delivered to the library.
Surveys about the new rules are available


"I think it'll be looked at favor-
ably unless it starts to get really
messy."
Barbara Hood
Library West public information officer

at the library If the results are positive, the
policy could continue into the fall.
Robert Dean, a senior English major, said
he thinks the plan is a bad idea.
"It could potentially damage the books,"


he said. "The library is supposed to be a place
of studying."
Hood said because the summer sessions
are less crowded, there won't be any extra
cleaning staff, but the library has put out more
trashcans and coasters.
"I saw someone using a coaster, and I
wanted to go give them a pat on the back,"
she said.
"I think it's a good idea," said Rob Taber, a
graduate student in history. "Its hard to study
for a long period of time without something to
munch on."


Expansion of city facility may threaten homes, animals


The fleet garage expansion would increase the city compound substantially in size. The planned growth has
incited complaints from residents of the surrounding Stephen Foster Neighborhood..


By YVONNE AYALA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Worried residents of the
Stephen Foster Neighborhood
are distressed by a possible threat
to the quiet enjoyment of their
homes as well as the environ-
ment.
The Development Review
Board, a city-organized group
that evaluates new growth, is
currently reviewing plans for the
expansion of a city vehicle repair
station and the relocation of a
refueling station at 405 NW 39th
Ave., about 400 feet from the resi-
dents' homes.
Residents expressed concern
about the noise, odors and un-
sightliness the expansion could
bring, resulting in the decreased
property value of their homes.
However, the issue has con-
stantly been passed over by the
Commission since November
2006.
"Each one of the six city com-
missioners said that they would
look into the matter, and some
said that they would get back to
us. Only [Commissioner] Rick


Bryant has actually gotten back to
us," said resident Susan Fairforest
about her efforts to contact the city
on its stance for the expansion.
The city's proposal requires
a barrier for a forested wildlife
habitat to be removed. Different
animals, including otters, foxes,
deer and gopher tortoises, live in
this habitat
Gainesville City and would
,,- I- -L.~-, ^ be threat-
ened by the
expansion,
said Barbara Ruth, spokeswoman
and resident of the Stephen Foster
Neighborhood.
SThis expansion would also
require retention ponds, which
heavy rains could overflow, caus-
ing road-building materials and
vehicle fluids to wash into the
nearby Springstead Creek.
This creek contributes water
to the Hogtown Creek Basin that
providessome of the local drink-
ing water, Ruth said.
On Monday, 50 anxious
Stephen Foster residents con-
vened at the City Commission
meeting, which ended with an
agreement to set a vote for July.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Vetoes start summer for SG


By-KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

At the first Student Senate meeting of the summer
Tuesday night, senators confirmed newly appointed
cabinet directors, agency heads and assistant treasurers.
Sen. David Drescher was named agency head of
external affairs, the position formerly known as lobby
coordinator.
Drescher said he is planning Student Government's
Washington trip, where senators use student money to
travel to Washington, D.C., for a meet and greet with
congressmen.
SG officials use this time to push issues concerning
UF students. The positions of Supervisor of Elections and
Chomp the Vote still aren't filled.
"Chomp the Vote is in a tough spot," Student Body
President Ryan Moseley said. "We have to make sure to
pick the best person."
Senators also upheld two vetoes: one concerning use
of the SG logo and a special request for the reimburse-
ment of almost $8,000 for a student organization.
Because of the vetoes, neither will go into effect.
The A&S Publication Clarification Act addressed the
use of the SG logo on published materials, such as the
disputed Israel-supporting advertisement that ran in the
Alligator last semester.
The act stated all organizations that receive SG funds


or sponsorship must give credit to those funds in any
printed materials, but no student organization can in-
dude the SG logo unless authorized by Student Body
Treasurer E.J. Walicki.
In a written explanation of his veto, former Student
Body President John Boyles, who was not present at the
meeting, explained that the bill was vetoed for inconsis-
tent language, but he hoped it would be amended during
the meeting.
"Chomp the Vote is in a tough spot. We
have to make sure to pick the best per-
son."
Ryan Moseley
Student Body. president

He wrote that he thought the Student Body president
should approve use of the logo instead of the treasurer.
The Minority Student Education Guild requested
funds for its South Africa and Botswana Outreach
Project, but Boyles and Moseley, former treasurer, vetoed
the request.
Senate Pro Tempore Kevin Reilly also announced sev-
eral open Senate seats.
For a complete list of open SG seats, visit http://
sg.ufl.edu.
Applications for the seats are due today at 5 p.m.

In a special to the St. Petersburg Times Tuesday, former
Student Body President John Boyles expressed his support
of a bill that would allow for three state universities, includ-
ing UF, to incrementally raise tuition.
Boyles wrote that as Student Body president, it was his
job to "ensure that a quality education is affordable" to all
students. However, he added that he felt the
UF Tuition Differential Program, formerly known
Alumni as the Academic Enhancement Program, was
different.
"This program is about improving the quality of under-
graduate education at UF," Boyles wrote. "For this reason, I
wholeheartedly support it."
If implemented, UF, Florida State University and the
University of South Florida would be allowed to raise tuition
up to 40 percent, but not more than 15 percent per year.
Boyles said he thought it would be a good idea and could
possibly move Gov. Charlie Crist to approve it.

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 17,2007


Editorial
So the first week of classes is winding down, and we
know you've already got a ton of homework, tests to
prepare for and papers to write. And we know you're
definitely going to sit down this weekend and crack those
books open.
Yeah, right. This is summer, people. But just because the
academic schedules aren't as rigorous and the town is half
empty, doesn't mean plenty of stuff isn't going on around
Gainesville and at UF. So take a break from not studying
just long enough to read this week's edition of...


Darts & Laurels
First up, an our-eyes-are-bloodshot-our-noses-are-run-
ning-and-we're-sick-of-it DART to the smoke from. the
wildfires. Hundreds of thousands of square acres have been
charred in South Georgia and throughout Florida, generat-
ing enough smoke to blanket Gainesville in a gray haze. The
recent rain, however, has helped, and more should be on the
way. Hopefully it will be enough to put an end to the rampant
wildfires and this suffocating smoke.
Next, we throw a too-little-too-late DART to the proposed
countywide five-cent gas tax. Gainesville's gas prices are
consistently among the highest in the state, and an extra five
cents per gallon would only exacerbate that problem. But the
tax is expected to generate orn-- 15.5 million in revenue, which
..ould go toward road improvements. But that's not nearly
enough to fix the problems plaguing county roads.
On top of that, Gainesville would only get 38 percent of
that revenue, but we're willing to bet our city has more than
that percentage of the problems. Why make us suffer more at
the pump when the benefits we see won't equal what we pay?
We encourage the city and county commissions to find an al-
ternative to this gas tax.
He may have graduated, but we just can't seem to get rid of
him and we mean that in a good way. Here's a now-that's-
dedication LAUREL for former Student Body President John
Boyles. He may have left office, but he still supports UF's push
for a tuition increase, and pleaded for Gov. Charlie Crist to not
veto the bill that would prevent UF from doing so.
In an op-ed piece published in the St. Petersburg Times,
Boyles explained why the tuition increase is necessary, so UF
can hire more faculty and advisers. He emphasized the point
that Florida's tuition ranks among the lowest in the nation.
"Quality education doesn't come cheap," Boyles wrote, "and
an affordable education does not mean keeping tuition from
increasing." '
UF wants to stay competitive as one of the top public uni-
versities in the nation, and it needs more money to do that. So
long that line, we give a not-all-tuition-increases-are-bad-tu-
ition-increases DART to Gov. Charlie Crist for threatening to
veto the tuition-increase bill. He's done a lot more good than
bad so far as governor, and we'd hate to see him turn the tide
by vetoing the tuition increases so desperately needed by UF
and Florida's other public universities.
Up next, we have a the-Gator-Nation-really-is-everywhere
LAUREL for Dr. Leonardo Villal6n, UF's first Carnegie
Scholar and director of UF's Center for African Studies.
Villal6n will use his grant to fund his research on the relation-
ship between Islam and democracy.
Prestigious awards such as this help set UF apart from oth-
er universities and aid in recruiting new faculty and students
who want to collaborate with world-class professors. Who
knows if the tuition increase bill passes, UF might even be
able to afford to hire some of those interested professors.
And naturally, we give a free-pizza-is-the-best-kind
LAUREL to everyone who stops by the Alligator open house
today from noon to 4 p.m. We're located at 1105 W. University
Ave., and we'd love to see you.

Guest column

Facebook no substitute for interaction


oday was a sad day in my social life: I learned of a
monumental event in my best friend's life through
Facebook. It's not like I don't talk to my friend on a
regular basis, and we're not fighting.
However, accessing Facebook late at night out of
sheer boredom is much more realistic than maintaining
around-the-clock phone contact with friends those
stupid sleeping schedules tend to get in the way.
On one hand, I find it alarming that my friend up-
dated her profile so quickly. But on the other, I find it
even more disturbing and disappointing that I needed to
access this information just as fast if not faster and
with greater frequency.
The all-too-familiar shame of knowing my Facebook-
stalking ruined my friend's surprise and killed her ex-
citement swelled within me.
Though I may be a repeat offender, I'm not the lone
one. Anyone who claims they haven't Facebook-stalked
at least once a week is lying and needs to check my
Facebook profile for a quote about why denial will ulti-
mately destroy you.
Have you ever run into people who Facebook-friend-
ed you, started a conversation and then you-realized that
you already knew that their favorite movie is (tragically)
"A Walk to Remember," they enjoy playing beer pong
and flip cup, and their favorite book is the Bible?
You're not alone. Hello, my name is Stephanie, and I
have a problem.
But the creepy disconnection from traditional social-
izing doesn't just end at Facebook. This crisis extends
to text messaging, instant messaging, blogging and
even online classes. Our attempts to communicate more
quickly and more easily block our ability to do just that.
As Mother always said, "It's not what you say, but


Stephanie how you say it." Usually I'm quick
Rosenberg to ignore my mother's words, but I
Speaking Out think I should make an exception in
this case. It's like playing a game of
Russian Roulette when trying to
figure out if an instant message saying "I love ya" really
means "I love you."
Lesser miscommunications have sparked world wars.
Why should everyday conversation become so psycho-
logically threatening and exhausting? It's not just distin-
guishing between what people say and what they mean
- it's also about deciding whether they truly mean it, or
if they are just making conversation.
With instant messaging and text messaging, we lose
body language and eye contact, which make up major
parts of our communication processes. We can't take
things for face value anymore, because the face has no
value you can't see the faces behind those monitors. In
the race to connect everyone to each other, we've merely
disconnected ourselves.
Online classes also present this problem, because
students feel less inclined to meet their professors in
person, and lazily view lectures while multitasking with
their Facebook-stalking, instant messenges and logging.
When it rains, it pours.
Technology has done much to connect people super-
ficially. I can talk to friends across the country and check
their statuses whenever my inquisitive heart desires. But
those experiences don't build relationships.
We constantly look to the future of communication
and technology, but the key to building solid bonds rests
in our first instinct, an idea dating back to ancient time:
human contact.

Letter to the Editor
Gas boycott ineffective
Whoever thought of this
one-day gas boycott was fool-
ish at best. You cannot boycott
something that most of us can-
not live without. Let's boycott
food and water because the
prices are too high!
Even if no one in the coun-
try bought gas for one day,
guess what? Everyone would
rush to the pump tomorrow
or later this week to catch up
on what they didn't buy that
day.
If anything, demand in the
upcoming days would go up,
and prices would rise. Good
job with your boycott.
Either buy a bike and sell
your car, or shut your naive
mouths and go buy the gas
you didn't on Tuesday be-
cause you were "boycotting."

Wildfire delays deliveries, worsens lung problems


* FIRE IN NEARBY COUNTY
ABOUT HALFWAY PUT OUT.

By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Writer

Other than scorching earth, the
nearby wildfires have impacted
local businesses and threatened
those with lung problems.
A produce manager for Ward's
Supermarket, Craig Smouse, said
delivery trucks have been late to
his store because the fires have
caused many North Florida roads
to close.
"It's been pretty consistent
for the last week or so," Smouse
said.
One problem with trucks ar-
riving late, he said, is the extra
time products spend on trucks
takes away from sales.
Another problem is that his
workers have to work late and
be paid overtime. Smouse said
he couldn't schedule the people
who unload the truck to work
later because trucks from the
south still come on time.
One truck arrived Monday
four hours late, Smouse said.
However, he said the financial
damage has not been significant.
"We understand here on this
end there's not a lot they can do
about it," he said.
Tom Belcuore, director of


the Alachua County. Health
Department, said the smoke ad-
visories issued on May 8 in the
county are still in effect.
He said the smoke comes in
and out of the area because of
changing winds. It's easier to
keep the advisory up instead
of taking it up and down when
smoke is in the area, Belcuore
said.
He advised people to keep
small children indoors because
they may be more vulnerable to
the smoke's effects than adults.
He added people should move
away from the smoke if they
experience tightened chests, ir-
-ritated eyes and wheezing.
Dr. Kenneth Olivier, a lung
cancer specialist at Shands at
UF, said the biggest health threat
from the fires' smoke is to people
with lung problems like asthma,
chronic bronchitis or emphy-
sema.
Olivier advised these people
to stay inside so their conditions
wouldn't worsen.
There is no connection be-
tween lung cancer and this type
of smoke, he added.
As the fires continue to bur
north of Gainesville in Columbia
County, many nearby residents
are still displaced.
About 725 homes have been
evacuated as a result of the fire.
Paulette- Lord, a spokes-


woman for Columbia County,
said Wednesday afternoon that
the 110,000-acre fire is about 50
percent contained.


She said there have been no
additional injuries other than the
firefighter who fell off a ladder
on Monday.


Florida Highway Patrol
spokesman Michael Burroughs
said U.S. 441 remains closed from
I-10 to the Georgia border

ers have been struggling to contain a massive brush fire that was ravaging the area.


PUBLIC HEALTH

Smoke-affected patients scarce at SHCC, official says


By NICK MATHEWS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville has been blanketed with smoke
from wildfires in Georgia and Florida for the
past week, but an official at the Student Health
Care Center said there hasn't been an increase
in patients with smoke-related illnesses.
Dr. Guy Nicolette, chief of staff at the cen-
ter, took an informal poll of health workers
there and found a consensus that there had
not been any dramatic increases in patients
with smoke-related ailments.
He also pointed out that while there was
not an increase, the center was dosed when
the smoke was particularly bad during the
first part of summer break.


"Now obviously it's not a big stretch to
imagine that folks with allergies, or certainly
with problems dealing with smoke or asthma,
might be more prone to having worsening
of their symptoms because of the smoke,"
Nicolette said. "But frankly, we just haven't
seen much of that here."
According to SHCC officials, the best way
to protect your health when smoke particles
are in the air is to limit your time outside.
A health advisory warning issued by the
Alachua County Health Department also
recommended caution in venturing outdoors
during the intense smoke.
Staying inside with the air conditioning on
and the windows dosed is method of protec-
tion, Nicolette said. .


"Now obviously it's not a big
stretch to imagine that folks with
allergies ... might be more prone
to having worsening of their symp-
toms because of the smoke. But
frankly, we just haver't seen much
of that here."
Dr. Guy Nicolette
chief of staff at the SHCC

The fires in Florida and Georgia prompted
the Alachua County Health Department to
issue a health advisory, which stated that the


smoke can irritate the eyes and respiratory
tract. It can also intensify asthma and lead to
bronchitis, reduced lung function or, in rare
cases, death.
On May 10, UF also sent out an e-mail cau-
tioning students to stay safe when in smoky
areas.
The e-mail also contained the advisory
about the smoke, asking all citizens to evalu-
ate their health and avoid the smoke as much
as possible.
According to the advisory, children are par-
ticularly susceptible to dangers because their
lungs are still developing.
In addition, it stated that smokers and
individuals with cardiovascular disease and
asthma are more sensitive to the smoke.


No break for Gainesville police over summer semester


Fewer students mean more patrols


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

As campus dears out between
the spring and summer semesters,
it might seem that police officers
around Gainesville would get a
much-needed break.
Capt. Jeff Holcomb, spokes-
man for the University Police
Department, begged to differ.
"(Summer) offers more. time
for increased patrols and security
checks," he said.
Traffic stops are heavily moni-
tored during the summer months,
said Sgt. Keith Faulk, spokesman for
the Alachua County Sheriff's Office.
Additionally, campus.buildings go


through routine security checks and
apartment complexes are examined
by local police officers, who then
issue the buildings security certifica-
tions, he said.
The Gainesville Police
Depatrment puts extra patrols on
the streets in an attempt to cut down
burglaries during the summer term.
"We're still extremely busy
There are still many people com-
ing to school that have little crime
prevention background," said GPD
spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg.
The number of students enrolled
at UF drops from about 50,000 to
30,000 at the beginning of summer.
"We're dealing with a transient
population," Kameg said. "When


you throw SFCC and UF together,
you get about 60,000 people."
As new students begin to move
to Gainesville, the police depart-
ments and sheriff's office know it
is essential to teach them the impor-
tance of crime prevention.
"We participate in the Preview
sessions, where a lot of
Public new students visit cam-
Safety pus with their parents,"
Holcomb said. He
added that UPD gives presentations
on police services and safety.
Along with UPD, GPD also edu-
cates new students about crime at
the Preview sessions.
"We let students know each se-
mester what laws we're enforcing,"


Kameg said.
New students living in apart-
ments are vulnerable to theft, Faulk
said, and the sheriff's office urges
them to take special precautions.
"Moving into a new area, espe-
cially moving away from home for
the first time, is a new concept (for
students)," Faulk said.
"We ask them to practice basic
safety procedures in terms of secur-
ing their apartment (and) securing
their vehicle."
"Don't leave valuables out in the
open where burglars can see them,"
he added.
Students should make them-
selves aware of their surroundings
and their neighbors, Faulk said. "We
provide safety tips on campus as
well as online," he said.
Along with increased security


checks and crime prevention educa-
tion, local law enforcement officials
appreciate the advantages of sum-
mer.
"We see a lower number of
crimes occurring during the sum-
mer," Holcomb said.
The sheriff's office sees a decline
in car burglaries, and GPD takes no-
tice of the decrease in bar-hopping.
Gainesville traffic has also de-
cined, Faulk said.
"Obviously, when 25,000 people
who are commuting daily leave a
particular area, that helps everyone
else's commute and traffic time,"
Faulk said.
Students move in and out of
Gainesville every semester, but lo-
cal law enforcement officials still
haven't gotten used to the popula-
tion change.

It's oh so quiet

Welcome to the wetness, the emptiness, the freedom, the
vision of yourself opening the fridge for a cold one because
you just can't think of anything else to do it's a summer in
Gainesville! As the weeks go by, you will learn that the rain
doesn't wait for you to scurry indoors, that happy hour pays
off if you're planning out your drinking schedule and that
humidity can make deodorant worthless.
But it's not really all that bad.
Let's be honest, you're probably staying in your own

perks: "Parking. On campus, near campus, downtown,

Steal my heart, but please don't steal my bike


ASHLEY HOFFMAN ) AVENUE WRITER


You may have spotted
Gainesville bicyclers pedaling
down the street atop their stream-
lined bicycles that bring to mind
the simpler times of suburban
paper boys.
Riders are treating their town
bikes as so much more than a
means of transportation.
"There's a whole culture around
bicycles," said Hector Galvez, 23, a
UF alumni. "I'm fairly new to this
bicycling, but you discover that
there are people who are really ad-
vocates for this fixed-gear riding."
Galvez commends bicycles
for the dynamic interplay of ma-
chinery that works to set you in
motion.
"There are so many things'
about different types of bicycles,
and you learn that they all share
the same basic technology," Galvez
said. "They're all really admirable,
and they're beautiful machines re-
gardless of what they're used for."
When it comes to his cycling
preferences, Galvez is a student of
the minimalist theory.
He takes a fixed-gear bicycle
around town. It has one speed
and no freewheel mechanism, so.
you can't coast the pedals move
when the bicycle moves.
"My bike is very simple, and it
appeals to a lot of people who may


not necessarily be all about a Tour
de France-type bike with a lot of
components," Galvez said.
In a culture of movement, to-
day's riders still look to the past for
inspiration, going to great lengths
for vintage and hard-to-find com-
ponents. "This trend is not a new
thing because it's the most anti-
quated technology," said Galvez.
'It appeals to the do-it-yourself
spirit in people who want to cus-
tomizeand fix their own bikes."
Yet, the glam of a two-wheeler
can reach the top of the line in
design.
Gucci in East Hampton, N.Y.,
recently showcased an antique
town bike for sale in their store
window for all to pine for.
In 2005, Giorgio Armani com-
missioned a design of his own
Emporio Armani bicycle nodding
to the town bike style of old Italy,
which an Italian high-performance
bicycle manufacturer produced
with a nostalgic flair.
For his menswear collection,
Armani sent his models pedaling
down the runway to showcase the
bike that functions today, but bows
to past tenets of bike design..
The affinity for these simple
bikes, which look vintage, has
resulted in the development of a
substantial following.


"We get a pretty dedicated cus-
tomer base," said Niles Gerritson,
owner of Recycled Bicycles, 805 W.
University Ave.
"A couple of professors own


them, and all the British professors
love to ride their town bikes."
Availability of these bicycles
that appear as though they were
immortalized in time is scarce,


but Gerritson estimates that you
can score one for under $150.
Commissioning your own custom
design could set you back more
than a grand.

Party hardy frugal folk
MEGANHERON>AVENUEWRITER sortofpunch-youcanbuycheaperalco-
hol when it's mixed with a variety of juices.


So, you want to plan a party without
sacrificing your next few paychecks to
pay it off? No problem. With a few stra-
tegic moves and conscious shopping, you
can throw the bash of the year with some
change left in your pocket.
First, decide on a theme and shop ac-
cordingly.
If you want, say, a pirate-themed party,
hit up the local fabric shop. Black and
white striped cloth or a deep blood-red
color can be used for simple decoration:
Use the fabric to cover furniture, protect-
ing it from spills and also adding to the set-
ting. Pick up a few colored light bulbs to
enhance the mood, or use a light-colored
fabric to drape over lamps.
Buy cheap where you can.
Supplies such as plates and cups can
be bought at the dollar store. You can cre-
ate simple decorations out of construction
paper, or print pictures from the Internet.
Who wouldn't love a picture of Captain
Jack Sparrow hanging on the wall?
Create theme-inspired invitations.
Throwing a toga party? Dye the paper
with tea bags, and then roll them like
scrolls. Another sleek trick: You can only
allow people with invitations to the party.
Allow them to bring one date, but that's it.
This will cut back on the amount of booze
and food you'll have to buy.
Suggest BYOB.
If you're on a really tight budget, suggest
that your guests bring their own supply. If
you do decide to buy alcohol, make some


Throw in a few apple and orange slices for
extra flavor, and the fruit will absorb the
alcohol and make for a tasty treat.
Ask your roommates to pitch in.
By hosting the party together, you can
split the cost. Another bonus: You'll have
people assisting in the planning and deco-
rating.
The one party item you shouldn't
skimp on is food. If you're just serving
snacks, buy in bulk. Also, keep an eye
out for sales. Check the newspaper for
coupons and sales that apply to your
shopping list.
If you're serving more than just chips
and dip, keep the menu simple. With the
pirate theme, seafood is a given. Stock up
on a variety of seafood, arid remember to
buy in bulk. If seafood is not your forte,
one interesting meal is salmagundi. In 16th
century England, it was really just a salad
made from whatever was available. Also
check online for chili and stew recipes.
Most ingredients in these meals are cheap
and/or replaceable. Add a bowl of salad
and accompany each with dinner rolls and
you're set.
For some background entertainment,
play a theme-related movie, such as
"Pirates of the Caribbean," "Hook" or
even "The Goonies."
As guests enter, hand out blank name
tags and have them go by a buccaneer
name for the night. It might sound cheesy,
but it could give you something to "yargh"
about.

Charity studio beats on

STEPHANIE GRANADA I AVENUE WRITER


Few people understand the gift of
music in a person's life as much as Tobin
Wagstaff and his wife Jill Wagstaff.
Following a passion for music help-
ing others, the Wagstaffs started Studio
Percussion in June 2002 as a local non-
profit music school that aims to aid
people of all ages and financial status in
developing their musical potential.
"I do not want anyone to not have
the opportunity to take music lessons
because money is an issue," said Tobin
Wagstaff.
At first, classes were conducted out of
the Wagstaffs' home, but an increasing
demand soon changed that.
Working with the community, the
organization has established music pro-
grams in elementary and pre-K schools
that lacked an adequate program, par-
ticipated in music lesson clinics and as
provided free musical education for a
number of underprivileged individuals
through their scholarship program.


Earlier this year, Studio Percussion
faced discord with its new neighbor, the
chiropractic office of Dr. Jeffrey Smith.
The office complained that the 6 p.m.
drumline class was too noisy. To accom-
modate his neighbors, Tobin Wagstaff
rescheduled his drumline class to 6:30
p.m. in effect changing the schedule of
over 100 of his school members.
But the show must go on.
On Friday, May 25, Studio Percussion
will be hosting its annual Spring
Concert as part of Gainesville's "Let's
Go Downtown" Plaza Series. You will
hear musical styling from keyboard en-
sembles to drum lines and bands. Over
fifteen groups from Gainesville will be
performing free of charge.
"The concert gives groups the op-
portunity to see what other groups have
been working on," said Wagstaff. "It also
allows the community to learn more
about us and see what we are doing here
at Studio Percussion."

Steinbrenner family. His children own homes
on the farm, and his daughter personally
names all the horses, Scott said.
Donkeys, a llama and miniature ponies,
favorites of Steinbrenner's grandchildren,
saunter around in grassy enclosures.
But horses are more than just beloved pets
and the basis of an exciting sport; they're part
of a big business. Champion-quality thor-
oughbreds can sell for upwards of $10 mil-
lion, and stud fees the price of breeding
with exceptional stallions can be as'high
as $300,000. The American Horse Council, an
advocacy group based in Washington D.C,
said the horse industry produces goods and
services of $3 billion in Florida alone.


The local horse industry has benefited
from its proximity to UF. The College of
Veterinary Medicine provides some unique
services to benefit the local horse industry,
such as its Mobile Equine Diagnostic Service,
an ambulatory clinic that serves local farms,
and a clinic specializing in equine neonatal
care. In addition, the Racing Lab tests blood
samples of horses for the local thoroughbred
owners and breeders.
Due to the ample number of students on
handUF's veterinary clinic is able to provide
some services to horse owners that other clin-
ics cannot, Scott said.
"We have a collaboration with the
horse farms," said Sarah Carey, the
Director of Public Relations at the
College of Veterinary Medicine. "It's
a mutually beneficial relationship."
Horses are a link that have brought magnate
Steinbrenner and the University together.
He has personally contributed $400,000 to
the College of Veterinary Medicine for the
purchase of medical imaging equipment
large enough to accommodate horses, and
has also made substantial donations for the
construction of the new music building." He
has also been recognized as a "Bull Gator" by
the Florida Gator Boosters.
However, this sports tycpon's ties to the
area may have begun with his desire to race
champion horses.
"We try to do the very best we can with
Mr. Steinbrenner's horses," said Scott. "Some
of the best horsemen in the world come right
from this area."

Some People Have A Lot To Say About

Sthe independent florida


alligator


"Writing columns for The Alligator was a piece
of cake. We had Nixon in the White House, and
each day provided a wonderful new atrocity. It
was a splendid opportunity for a columnist to
learn the value of contempt, ridicule and satire.
It also gave me a pile of newspaper clippings
that continue to scare the hell out of editors
years later."
Carl Hiaasen
Columnist
The Miami Herald
and internationally-famous author


"More than anything else, the two years I spent at The Alligator pre-
pared me for my first full-time reporting job after graduation. It was
at The Alligator where I learned how a newsroom works and where
I was turned on to the business that I love so much. I can say that
my journalism school training provided me with a strong foundation
for a career, but my deepest roots lie with The Alligator. I wouldn't
trade my experience there or all the lifelong friends I made there -
for anything."

Keith Moyer
Publisher
the Minneapolis Star Tribune


"When I went on the hunt for jobs, not a sin-
gle person ever asked anything about my
grade point average ... They wanted to see
my clips. -They wanted to hear about my
real-world experience. And The Alligator
gave me all that and much more a sense of
mission and of belonging, an admiration for
the written word, and memories and friends
that will be with me always."
Dennis Kneale
Managing Editor
Forbes magazine


"The Alligator made my career in journalism possible. The deadline
writing that I learned at The Alligator allowed me to cover the fall of
the Berlin Wall (for the Baltimore Sun) and other breaking assign-
ments with confidence and professionalism. ... in fact, the years at
The Alligator actually were the most valuable to me. Without having
covered (UF) Student Government and the (UF) administration, I
could never have tackled the Neo-Nazis of Germany or the Chinese
secret police."

Ian Johnson
Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize
for International Reporting;
Foreign Correspondent,
Wall Street Journal


"No other experience from college
matched the excitement of The Alligator.-
I have enjoyed a rich and full career by
applying skills I acquired at The Alligator
to many different pursuits. I truly owe
The Alligator a debt of gratitude."

Ron Sachs
President
Ron Sachs Communications


"The Alligator gave me real life, practical experience in both ad
sales and business. It prepared me for the outside world that
awaited. While my friends worked for minimum wage performing
menial tasks, I earned good money, made fantastic contacts and han-
dled thousands of dollars in Alligator accounts. This job is an abso-
lute MUST for anybody who is considering sales as a career
choice."

Clifford Marks
President of Sales and Chief
Marketing Officer, National CineMedia

.It's do or die time for the Gators.
Starting tonight, the UF baseball team (27-26,
-. 1 14-13 Southeastern Conference) will have a chance
to not only jockey itself into a good position in the
SEC Tournament next week in Hoover, Ala. It can
also build up its credentials for a bid in the NCAA
Tournament.
"It's'amazing how quickly the season has un-
-. foldedd" UF coach Pat McMahon said. "I think our
guys have battled their hearts, and I'm proud of
them. We just need to continue to
Improvee"
UF hosts Tennessee (31-22, 11-14
SEC) a squad in a down year by
Baseball its own standards at 6:30 p.m.
Any possible conference tourna-
ment matchups are far from set in
stone, but the Gators are guaranteed a bid if they
take two of three this weekend. Where they end up
will largely depend on the other SEC series being
played.
If the tournament started today, UF would be
the No. 6 seed and play Mississippi State in the
first round. The team has a remote chance to move
up to the No. 3 seed if Mississippi State and South
Carolina get swept, Mississippi loses its series and
the Gators sweep the Vols.
The Gators have the same record as Mississippi,
but the Rebels own the tiebreaker because they de-
feated the current No. 1 seed Vanderbilt once, while
the Commodores swept UF.
If the Gators are swept by Tennessee, the squad

UF first baseman Ali Gardiner
transferred to UF in 2006 for two
reasons: to follow in her father's
footsteps and to win.
She left the University of North
Carolina-Wilmington after her
freshman year she was the
Seahawks' leading hitter to
play at the same school for which
her father, Wally, played baseball
from 1970-73.
"I've always wanted to go to
Florida," said Gardiner, a sopho-
more. "I came here wanting to
play more com-
petitive ball.
"It has
worked out
well."
And it has
worked out
well for her new
Gardiner team in return,
Gardiner
and the rest of the 13th-seeded
Gators (46-20) will take the field.
against Stetson (44-20) on Friday
as a regional host in the 2007
NCAA Softball Tournament.
The first game of the Gainesville
Regional, between Texas (33-18)
and Georgia Tech (53-14), begins
Friday at 3:30 p.m. at the Florida
Softball Stadium.
UF went 1-1 last season against
the Hatters, who are making their
first NCAA Tournament appear-
ance in school history.
The Gators are making their
eighth tournament appearance in
their 11-year history.
"We're looking good," said UF
coach Tim Walton, adding that his
squad can't rely solely on the right
arm of ace sophomore pitcher
Stacey Nelson (30-13, 0.94 ERA),
even if that arm is "unbelievable."
"(Stacey) has been the back-
bone to our success," he said. "She
throws hard. She's very deceptive.
She's quietly become the best field-
ing pitcher in the country.

Freshman right-hander Mullaney key to Gators' improvement


BASE, from page 23


UF has been an up-and-down
teanm all season. Despite their SEC
resume and taking four of six games
from in-state foes Miami and Florida
State, the Gators have struggled
with consistency. The squad has
dropped series to Virginia Military


Institute and Kent State, as well as
midweek games to Central Florida
and North Florida.
This inconsistency has prevented
UF from securing an NCAA bid
despite the fact that making it to
Hoover is usually enough to guar-
antee a spot.
"You want to play (in the NCAA
tournament)," McMahon said, "but
things have to unfold in other con-


ferences for that
to happen.
"If the RPI
holds, then all
we need is more
wins."
The Gators
have stayed in
Mullaney the race for an
NCAA bid large-
ly due to the emergence of freshman


Kyle Mullaney as the Friday starter.
The right-hander is 4-1 with a
4.85 ERA and has won his last two
starts.
"Kyle has been a big help to us,"
McMahon said. "He's been one of
the most consistent performers for
our pitching staff."
For Mullaney, it's about what he
can do to help his team.
"I'm just going to do what I can


to help the team," he said. "We've
made a lot of improvement since the
beginning of the year. The freshmen,
especially, got a-lot better."
UF will have to continue its
improvement if it hopes to make a
splash at the SEC Tournament.
The Volunteers still hold a long-
shot chance to make it to Hoover if
they take the three-game set from
the Gators.

Walton stressed that the Gators' fate stands, instead, in
the batter's box.
"We have to hit better," he said. "We have to get more
runners on base."
The. Gators totaled four runs during their three SEC
tournament games, including a 1-0 loss in the champion-
ship game to LSU.
Like UF, the Hatters are young. Stetson's team is com-
prised of two seniors, four juniors, four sophomores and
seven freshmen.
UF has five seniors, two juniors, seven sophomores
and two freshmen.
The winner of the UF-Stetson game will take on the
winner of Georgia Tech and Texas on Saturday. The two
losers will also face off Saturday, as teams need to lose
twice to be eliminated.
