Stadium construction slow, overbudget
N THE PROJECT IS 133 PERCENT OVER ITS
ORIGINAL BUDGET, $12 MILLION.

UF ADMINISTRATION

Cost-cutting team formed

The force is with us.
And after the Cost Reduction and
Efficiency Task Force meets for the first time
this month, students might begin to feel
the strain of UF's $20 million to $30 million
debt.
In a memo sent to UF deans, directors
and department chairs Wednesday, UF
President Bernie Machen announced the
members of a task force that will find places
to cut from UF's budget.
After the startup date for a program that
would have raised tuition by a maximum
15 percent was pushed to fall 2008, UF lost
out on about $2.7 million, which it was hop-

students.
At the June meeting of the Board of
Trustees, UF's highest governing body,
Machen announced' UF
was in the red. -
The Cost Reduction

will look for ways to
trim UF's expenditures,

Dust and debris fill the air around Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium. Though it's dismembered now, things will
change, just not as soon as originally planned.
Like dirt-covered surgeons, men in blue jeans and
white helmets have been giving The Swamp a facelift
since fall 2005.
Senior associate director of the University Athletic
Association Greg McGarity, who's overseeing the con-
struction, said most of the renovations would not be
complete until the 2008 football season.
The original cost for the project was estimated at
about $12 million, according to the Facilities Planning
and Construction Web site.
But the whole project ended up costing about $28
million, more than twice what was planned, McGarity
said.
No state funds or student money was used, he said.
The UAA raised $20 million in private donations,
and the rest came from ticket sales, revenue generated
from television rights and other donations, he said.
The brand-new entrance at the southwest comer of
the stadium will feature almost 7,000 more square feet;
a 55-foot brick wall with the Gators logo and a shiny
title of "National Champions." The years 1996 and
2006, the two years the Gators won the BCS National
Championship game, will also be included.
Even though construction seems to drag on,
McGarity said he's confident the project won't take too

Deli replaces Denny's


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

When Denny's was evicted from
the Holiday Inn on University Avenue
in October 2005, students could no
longer scramble to the restaurant for a
late-night Grand Slam breakfast.
But there is a bright light at the end
of this dreary tunnel, and it comes in
the form of Greek omelettes and matzo
ball soup at the 24-hour Dill Deli,
Bakery and Grill.
The owners, a group of friends
and family from Tarpon Springs, have
been in the restaurant business all their
lives.


E Two UF security engineers
not only attended the
DEF CON hacker conference in
Las Vegas, but are members
of the hacker team that
has won gold or rather, black
badges two years in a row.
See story, pg. 4.


"We're from Greek descent," said
restaurant owner Alexandra Gould,
"so we like to eat."
The menu is peppered with items
for every palate, from chili dogs and
burgers to meatloaf
Around and shrimp alfredo.

in the fact that every-
thing is homemade, kosher and comes

chefs, Gould said, to make sure the
dishes come out perfectly.

Library becomes second to get gold in 'green' rating


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer

Light-years away from its days
of asbestos and lead-based paint,
Library West is now officially rec-
ognized as one of the most envi-
ronmentally progressive buildings
on campus.
Bahar Armaghani, assistant
director of UF's Leadership in
Energy and Environmental Design
program, said last month the li-
brary became the second building
on campus to attain the gold certi-
fication level, which is the second-
highest level, in the LEED Green
Building Rating System.
The first UF building to receive


gold certification was Rinker Hall.
The LEED Rating System, de-
veloped by the U.S. Green Building
Council, is a credit-based system
that evaluates the environmental
sustainability of a building. It rates
buildings on a 69-credit scale.
Buildings need 39 points to at-
tain gold certification, and Library
West and Rinker Hall got 40 credits
.each. To reach the highest level of
certification, platinum, each build-
ing would need to accumulate at
least 52 credits.
All the materials used inside the
library, including the paint, carpet,
sealant and adhesive, contain little
or no volatile organic compounds,
which emit toxic fumes, Armaghani


Library West will reduce its hours during the break
between semesters
From Aug. 10 to Aug. 22, Library West will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.,
Monday through Friday. Hours for other libraries are posted on the UF
libranes Web site.
The interlibrary loan system will be unavailable from Aug. 10 to Aug. 15
due to a planned upgrade.

said in a phone interview.
"That's the main thing about
green building it focuses, really,
on indoor air quality," she said.
Even so, the library racked up
$435,411.20 worth of electricity,
water and wastewater charges last
year, according to records provided
by John Lawson, coordinator at the
Physical Plant Division. That works
out to about $36,000 per month.
The building, Armaghani said,
is about 30 percent more energy
efficient than it would be if it were
built to Florida Building Code stan-
dards.
That is probably not the reason
people flock to the library, though.
Armaghani has another theory.
Seventy-five percent of the occupied
space gets daylight, she said, and 90
percent is awarded an outside view.
Studies have proven, she said,
that places with natural light and
views of the outside increase the oc-
cupants' performances.
"That's why Library West is al-
ways packed. I guess it's a nice place
to go," Armaghani said.

the H@cker Elite


UF engineers compete in Vegas


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

Hacker team "1@stPlace" knows its name
represents the thin line between valiant vic-
tory and thorough defeat.
However, at DEF CON, one of the largest
underground hacking events in the world, the
team has been labeled as world champions for
two years in a row.
SJohn Sawyer, 30, and Jordan Wiens, 27, are
UF senior security engineers. They hold the
secrets to UF's networks. They know the so-
lutions to computer glitches and meltdowns.
They have busy lives, wives and kids.
But in the hacking world, they go by other
names: "mezzendo" and "psifertex," respec-
tively.
As members of 1@stPlace, Sawyer and
Wiens traveled to Las Vegas Aug. 3 through
Aug. 5 as returning holders of black badges,
the highest award given at DEF CON. These
badges grant them free admission to the event
for life.
They joined seven other team members in
Nevada: a lawyer from Washington D.C., two
hackers from the Midwest and four from the
Northwest.
Their team captain, who mysteriously goes
by "@tlas," selected the hackers based on their
compatibility.
"He handpicked us not only for our techni-
cal skills and promise," Sawyer said, "but for
our personalities."
About 160 teams from around the world
competed in a Jeopardy-style tournament
in June, where the top seven teams would
qualify to compete against last year's winner,
l@stPlace, at DEF CON 2007.
l@stPlace members competed in the tour-
nament for practice, Sawyer said, as well as to
individually develop their skill sets over the
past year.
"Everyone knows what they need to be
better at," he said.
Wiens and Sawyer arrived in Las Vegas
with loads of equipment, including masses of
cables and laptops.


"All they give you is a connection from
your server to their network," Sawyer said.
The competition started Aug. 3 at 10 a.m.
The competition organizers, also known as
Kenshoto, controlled the networks. Each team
had a server with 20 services on it that it had
to defend, find holes in and attack on the other
teams' servers.
Teams were awarded points for service
level, steals, overwrites and breakthroughs,
or being one of the first three teams to exploit
a particular service. Penalties were given
if teams tried anything inappropriate, like
illegal-hacking moves or real-life physical
violence.
1@stPlace protected its servers early on in
the game and retrieved everyone else's pass-
words.
"He handpicked us not only for
our technical skills and promise,
but for our personalities."
John Sawyer
1@stPlace team member


It worked Friday and Saturday from 10
a.m. until 8 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m.
until 2 p.m.
The competition grew tense as the second
place team, comprised of naval postgraduates,
kept gaining points.
However, l@stPlace had the advantage
because the second-place team was more fo-
cused on educational aspects, Wiens said, than
the dirty tricks they could use to get ahead..
They cleared their creative moves with
Kenshoto to make sure they were legal.
"We did some things in the game that they
(the second-place team) weren't really happy
about," said Wiens, whose tactics have earned
him the nickname, "Minister of Mischief."
"We really prevented them from getting a
fair number of points," he said. "While what
we did was tricky, they could have stopped us
a number of ways."
1@stPlace kept the lead for the entire week-
end, Sawyer said, except when another team

took it for 20 seconds Friday afternoon.
Besides winning, the team also had the
highest number of breakthroughs on oppos-
ing systems.
Wiens and Sawyer said l@stPlace was
successful because it ran like a well-oiled
machine.
After the competition was over, an oppo-
nent walked up to them and asked, "What is it
you're doing that we're not doing?"


"We were much more effective at taking
what others have done and learning from it,"
Wiens said.
@tlas emphasized the importance of being
humble during the game. When others might
have cursed and grown bitter, l@stPlace kept
positive.
"When other teams scored breakthroughs,
we'd clap for them," Sawyer said. "Not all the
teams were doing that."


Details of crash released


By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Writer
atan@alligator.org

Though the trial date for the man-
slaughter case of Gainesville police Lt.
Corey Dahlem has not been set, new details
regarding the tragic incident are being
revealed.
GPD Officer Corey Dahlem, 45, was hit
by a fast-moving pickup truck on April
3 after the UF basketball team's national
championship game.
According to a recently released report
from the Florida Highway Patrol that
reveals additional details of the incident,
Dahlem was pronounced dead April 4.
The driver, University of North Florida
student Austin Wright, 21, has been
charged with manslaughter while driving
under the influence. According to the re-
port, his blood alcohol level was .270. The
legal limit is .08.
Gainesville Police Department Officer
Nancy Hallett is one of the many police
officers, witnesses and passengers quoted
in the report. She said when police pulled


Wright over, he didn't seem to know what
was going on.
One of the three 19-year-old passengers
in Wright's 2001 Toyota Tacoma, Shelly Ann
Floyd, said she thought the crash occurred
because Wright couldn't see Dahlem.
Another passenger said Wright was not
paying attention, and the driver's "careless-
ness and stupidity" caused the crash.
While witnesses say the truck's lights
were on and the area was lit, the truck's
speed is debated. One witness said the .
truck was moving at 70 mph,
Lcnal while another estimated the
News speed at40mph.
According to one witness,
Dahlem was thrown into
another truck, a 1993 Ford F-350, after be-
ing hit. '
The truck was driven by an employee of
the Florida Department of Transportation.
Special prosecutor for the case Geoffrey
Fleck said Wright has turned in a plea of
not guilty.
Larry Turner, who represents Wright,
could not be contacted Wednesday after-
noon.


Meters get MySpace page


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer

According to a MySpace profile,
she's a 25-year-old female living in
Gainesville and her current mood is
"excited."
She's not a college student, though.
She's actually a donation campaign
for the homeless called "Give a Better
Way!" being launched by the city.
At a press conference scheduled for
2:15 p.m. today, the city will kick off the
campaign and unveil six new homeless
donation meters that are situated near
University Avenue and the downtown
area.
The donation meters take coins, and
the Web site gainesvillegives.org ac-
cepts funds through PayPal.
Both resources offer citizens a way to
donate money to the homeless without
violating the new panhandling ordi-
nance, according to the city's Web site.
The ordinance, passed unanimously
by the City Commission on July 23, has
resulted in only one arrest so far, said
GPD Spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg.
City Spokesman Bob Woods said the
meters and the Web site are ways for


residents to "maximize their contribu-
tions."-
"If you give a few cents to a panhan-
dler, you can't be sure what happens to
that money," Woods said. "But when
you donate through our ... campaign,
you have the assurance that that money
is going directly to pay for services that
are intended to support the homeless
population."
He added that as
-F 7 7 little as. $3 can pay
>:-.: .": for a full meal, so any
amount that can be
S donated helps.
The funds will be
S given to the Alachua
Kameg County Coalition for

The refurbished parking meters can

Gainesville's younger demographic

Frenchat Ht4&


Teacher turns home into classroom


By TARA FRY
Alligator Contributing Writer

Those who love the taste of croissants
and the sound of the French language
don't necessarily have to travel overseas
to experience French culture.
The cole Francaise in Gainesville lets
people of all ages- and proficiency levels
learn the culture and language year-
round. Lessons such as counting, singing
and interactive competitions take place at
teacher and founder Judy Charudattan's
home.
Education is conducted one-on-one
based on a student's level, interest andat-
tendance, Charudattan said.
"Each has the opportunity to learn and
progress at his or her own pace," she said.
Charudattan, an after-school teacher
at P.K. Yonge Developmental Research
School, offers after-school programs and
French Summer Camp every summer. No
prior education is needed, she said.
She began her after-school lessons
and French Summer Camp as a result of
requests from parents who wanted their
children's French education to continue
over the summer.
She taught regular French lessons at
several elementary schools but thought it
would be easier for everyone to meet at
one location, so kids began to go to her
home after school.
Zadia Dupee, 13, said she has been go-
ing to Ecole Francaise since she was 3.
"It's really fun and interesting," she
said. "I'd rather learn here than school. It's
a more relaxed environment."
In 1992, Charudattan began taking kids
to Le Congres de la Culture Francaise en
Floride, an annual language competition
in Orlando.


Children can recite poems or sing songs
to receive medals. Charudattan said it's a
huge motivating factor for kids to do well
in their lessons during the year.
"The children think, 'I want to go to
Congris this year,'" she said. "'I'll take
French class and do well so I can go and.
possibly receive a medal.'"
Ten-year-old Keesia Hagley placed first
at Congres last year. This summer is her
sixth year at Ecole Francaise.
"It's pretty fun," Keesia said. "Me and
my sister live across the street, so we can
say, 'Mom, can we go to French class?' and
go whenever we want."
A large room in the back of her home
is where the activities, lessons and exams
take place.
Charudattan also recently added anoth-
er room, where children can watch movies
or TV in French.
The children take turns one at a time to
meet with Charudattan.
She points to an item and asks the stu-
dent in French what it is. The answer also
mustbe given in French.
"They have to use 'merci' and 's'il vous
plait,'" she said. "I want to make them
want to do French."

"It's really fun and interesting. I'd
rather learn here than school."
Zadia Dupee
Ecole Francaise student

Pictures, candy and French lessons
flood Charudattan's desk. Surrounding
tables are covered with workbooks with
French phrases and numbers, and pictures
from all over the world cover some of the
walls.
All activities are based on each child's

progress. A student can do his or her
activities and exercises and work with
Charudattan while the rest of the group is
in the other room.
After the children accomplish their les-
sons, Charudattan replies, "Tres bien!"
They receive "bonbons" of their choice:
chocolate M&M's or mint-flavored gum-
mies.
The students also receive stars for com-
pleted exercises that offer a possible prize,
which is an encouraging aspect for most of
the students.
"She gives really good prizes, espe-
cially in the summer," Zadia said.'
Charudattan treats her learners by cook-
ing French specialties such as croissants,
crepes, mousse au chocolate and tarte aux


poires, or "pears from the garden."
"One of the first things I learned to say
was 'chocolate,' because I love chocolate,"
Keesia said.
The delicious desserts and candy are
usually favorites among the students, al-
though it is learning about a new culture
and its language that seems to be the most
interesting for them.
"It's not just the candy," Keesia said. "I
know how to say different things."
Charudattan, who has been teach-
ing since 1988, received an Excellence in
Teaching Award in 2002..
In 1999, she started National .French
Week at P.K. Yonge, a weeklong celebra-
tion of French culture open to everyone
who wishes to participate.


Closures to affect


returning students


By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Writer
atan@alligator.org

As students prepare to
head out of town for the
break between summer B and
the fall semester, returning
to Gainesville may be harder
than leaving it.
Florida Department of-
Transportation spokesman
Chip Skinner said students
should expect daytime lane
closures on Archer Road's
ramp to 1-75 from today to the
end of the week.
Skinner said new mast arm
lights are being installed to-
day and should be completed
soon.
However, students should
be prepared for heavy traffic
as they return, he said.
Traffic during the week
or two leading up to fall se-


mester is busiest from 7 a.m.
to 9 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 6
p.m., he said.
Skinner said traffic tends
to be busier before the fall se-
mester, when students are re-
turning to school, than before
spring because of the moving
trucks students
LoCal may use and the
News influx of new
students.
The busiest exits tend
to be the Archer Road and
Newberry Road exits, he
said.
Skinner said students
should also be on the lookout
for daytime lane closures on
South Main Street between
SW 16th Avenue and Williston
Road.
The road is being land-
scaped with several shrubs
and trees to beautify the area,
he said.


Study-abroad anxiety common

Study-abroad anxiety common


By KIRK WILLIAMS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Cara Brown was ready to go
abroad for a semester in Rome.
But shortly before her flight
left for Italy, Brown, a UF mar-
keting junior, realized how
drastically her life was about to
change.
"It hit a day before (I left),
and I got really sad and started
missing things already," she
said.
Brown was excited about liv-
ing in a foreign country but had
not realized the implications of
leaving her home, family and
friends.
"You're scared because you
don't know what to expect,"
she said.
But after arriving in Rome,
she embraced the experience
rather than remaining focused
on any negative aspects.
"It was easy for me to get
used to things because that's
how I am," she said.
Brown is one of many col-
lege students who has made the
decision to study abroad. While
it is a rewarding opportunity,
not all students look past the
glamour of traveling and con-


sider the implications of living
weeks, months or even longer
in a foreign country.
Students also may not realize
it is quite common to experience
anxiety or culture shock after
leaving their personal comfort
zone and arriving at their host
country.
"The real richness is in
continuing to go out and
engage inthe culture."
Jamie Funderburk
clinical psychologist/UF Counsel-
ing Center

"I think it's pretty natural,"
said Jamie Funderburk, a clini-
cal associate psychologist and
licensed psychologist with the
UF Counseling Center. "Even if
the adjustment goes smoothly,
there's still an adjustment
you're going through."
Funderburk, who has dealt
with cross-cultural experiences
and has spoken to students re-
entering the country after being
abroad, said students may have
trouble translating the language
or may become frustrated with
the cultural differences. The


result can be a feeling of loss
or homesickness, but she said
students should not be easily
discouraged.
"The real richness is in con-
tinuing to go out and engage in
the culture," Funderburk said.
Despite the anxiety students
might encounter, there are ways
to curb such worries. Keeping
an open mind and being aware
of the tendency to go through
cultural adjustment are two of
the most effective ways to avoid
uneasiness, Funderburk said.
Lynn Frazier, executive
associate director for the UF
International Center, suggests
students prepare by first learn-
ing about their host country and
talking to people who have been
there before.
"Not everybody reacts the
same," said Frazier, who be-
lieves studying abroad with
friends or having previous
knowledge of the host country
and language can be helpful. ,
After a few days or weeks,
Funderburk said students begin
to gain a little more admiration
for and understanding of the
culture.
"It moves from a loss to an
appreciation," she said.






6, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, AUGUST 9,2007


A asphalt, extreme heat, shish kabobs and a spatula.
Add a few ribs and you could've had a literal street
barbecue today. Yes, while everyone depleted their
water weight in sweat, the Department of Darts & Laurels
perspired for different reasons. Given that this is the last
issue of the summer, we wanted to make it extra special
- you know, something worth standing in the heat for.
However, due to the fact that Dick Cheney hasn't shot any-
one in a while (that will never get old) and those televised
presidential candidate debates are downright boring, we
weren't excited to start this end-of-the-summer Darts &
Laurels. Actually, we're probably more depressed that sum-
mer is over, which forces us to return to our fall 30-hour-
plus workweek. Nah. We're probably just disappointed
no one started breakdancing during the debates. We really
wanted to see a good presidential candidate dance party.
But we guess a dance party would require actual living
peoplE, not the living dead. So we gave our best shot to
deliver some quality darting and laureling for this last sum-
mer 2007 edition of...



Darts & Laurels
Remember DARE, the annoying, preachy, ineffective el-
ementary school program that unintentionally introduced
kids to addictive and illegal drugs? Well, thankfully the
Florida Department of Law Enforcement has come to its
senses and realized the good intentions of the DARE pro-
gram aren't worth the $376,000 it's spending each year telling
kids to "Just say no." Hopefully the proposed budget cut will
be approved, and thus we award the FDLE with this good-
idea-to-just-tell-kids-to-just-say-no-to-drugs-the-cheap-way
LAUREL.
Despite our immense appreciation.for light breezes and
every moment we're in the air conditioning, the sub-polar
climate of Library West was getting a bit old. We heard ru-
mors of graduate students trapped in blocks of ice on the
fourth floor. However, like the FDLE, Library West has also
come to its senses and opted to raise the temperature in order
to provide a more comfortable atmosphere and to save mon-
ey. So we pass along this thanks-for-realizing-you're-storing-
books-and-not-ice-cream LAUREL to Library West.
For quite some time, the Alligator has run stories regard-
ing property owners' mistreatment of students. Last week,
an article in the Alligator e\poed the underhanded nature
of some of the management at the apartment complex
LaMancha. We feel the extreme circumstances of these apart-
ment and condominium disputes warrant a stop-stealing-
our-security-deposits-and-rendering-us-homeless DART
violently hurled at shady yes, shady landlords and
management.
And good news for supporters of the remodeling of Ben
Hill Griffin Stadium. Some very nice alumni have donated a
championships' worth of gator-green dollars to improve the
look of the stadium. Though it's all flowers, sunshine and
green, green grass for the beloved football stadium, some of
the colleges in charge of the students' academia are falling
further into debt. Though we appreciate alumni donations,
maybe UF should consider persuading its altruisitic alumni
to donate to more pressing causes such as education, the
purpose of the university.' We love generous alumni, but
we're going to have to throw this we-love-football-but-we'd-
rather-learn-a-few-things-so-we-can-become-rich-like-you-
and-waste-millions-of-dollars-on-a-football-stadium DART
at alumni donating solely to improve the stadium.
Finally, we'd like to end this summer on a high note by
praising the University Police Department for treating stu-
dents with leniency who paint graffiti on places such as the
Norman Hall tunnel. We give the UPD this we-know-it's-a-
crime-but-thanks-for-allowing-us-something-cool-to-look-
at-when-we-pass-under-that-creepy-underpass LAUREL.
That ends this extra-special edition of Darts & Laurels.
Brace yourself for the madness of fall Darts & Laurels. We'll
be back. In the meantime, have a great break. We're sure
you'll miss us.

Issue with students ignoring issues


regarding U.S. political policy, college students pos-
sess an undeniable ability to forcefully debate the
subject. We've formed opinions on U.S. social poli-
cies, international policies, economic policies and even mili-
tary policies, coincidentally, with most of us having never
voted in a presidential election. It's a good thing we've kept
up with current affairs because in about 15 months, we'll
finally have the chance to speak up. Yes, in no time it will be
Election Day, and we'll be voting for candidates who will
address some of the most controversial political issues our
country has faced in decades.
The most apparent and notorious issue is the war on
terror. I'll be candid and suggest a majority of Americans
are indeed in favor of a secure, terror-free nation protected
by a strong military. Over the past six years, the increased
military security at airports, our national borders and even
the New York Stock Exchange has been well received. No
one wants to witness another terrorist attack, so we support
our soldiers, hoping our families can live safe and worry-
free lives.
Yet media polls consistently confirm a majority of
Americans are less than satisfied with the current admin-
istration's strategies in Iraq. I cannot say if the consensus
demands a change in military strategy or a complete
withdrawal from the region. However, it's painfully cear
the candidates are going to have to address this issue.
Obviously the threat of anti-American regimes exists
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's recent con-
demnation of western society scares me to death. However,
the war has become exceedingly costly, on fiscal and social
levels. Candidates must propose solutions that will balance
military defense with the demands of the voters.
Foreign economic competition is another major issue the
candidates will undoubtedly face. Over the past five years,
the U.S. has become a significantly less attractive place for
corporations to conduct business. The U.S. corporate tax


rate is one of the highest among
free-enterprise capitalist coun-
tries (35 percent in the U.S. vs. 25
percent in Germany and 12.5 per-
Scent in Ireland), and it has forced
thousands of companies to move
business overseas.
Eddie Sarrine Additionally, the Sarbanes-
letters@aligato.o.rg Oxley Act, originally put in place
to prevent another Enron scandal,
has unfavorably resulted in com-
panies listing their stock on more business-friendly stock
exchanges, such as the London Stock Exchange. If America
wants to keep its competitive edge, candidates will have to
display savvy solutions for our country's corporate prob-
lems.
Energy is another significant problem the candidates
will have to address. Unfortunately, there are few alterna-
tives to dirty coal-fired and gas-fired power plants. America
missed the opportunity to build a sufficient nuclear-pow-
ered infrastructure, and because of the required time table
on nuclear energy, it will take another 15 years for a nuclear
power plant to come online. Crude oil is sitting at record
levels, and high gas prices are taking a toll on Americans'
pocketbooks. Voters should consider candidates with inno-
vative ideas for future energy sources. Technological subsi-
dies could spur revolutionary research and development in
the industry.
Of course, there are countless other political issues fac-
ing the 2008 presidential candidates: global trade, global
warming, income taxes, gay rights and education. It's cru-
cial for us to start learning about these issues now. In 2008,
our votes will help shape public policy that will affect us
and our children for years to come.

Letters to the Editor
Condo management suspicious
I am writing to thank the Alligator for
featuring an article raising awareness about
the management problems at LaMancha
Apartments. As the signer of a parental
guarantee on my son's former lease there,
I've been looking for property manager
Chris Shurley since January.
Shurley has never returned my son's
$250 deposit or answered any e-mails, voice
messages or registered mail I have sent. He
didn't appear for final checkout, and we
never found anyone to return the apartment
keys to. His office address, which looks like
a business location, is nothing more than a
drop box at a Mail Boxes, Etc. facility on
Tower Road.
LaMancha used to be a popular apart-
ment complex with foreign students. I won-
der how many naive international students
have also lost their deposits from units
mismanaged by Shurley, who seems to have
vanished?

SI__ I-
Summer courses not worth the money
Every semester at UF presents unique
learning opportunities and challenges.
However, two short semesters summer
A and B present special challenges and


difficulties without always providing com-
mensurate educational payoffs.
The short, six-week duration of summer
A and B can cause feelings of anxiety in
teachers and students. I know because I've
been in each position.
One thinks, "How in the world can we
cover all the material in such a short span
and still manage to learn something?" With
this question and another worry that there
is often a session every day, and some of the
offerings satisfy the Gordon Rule, it seems
like an all-out scramble simply to trudge
through the administrative paperwork, en-
gage in the process of discovery, exertion,
necessary trial and error, possible failure
and hopeful redemption that a complete 15-
week fall or spring semester allows for.
A Gordon Rule requirement means writ-
ing, and writing means deliberate thinking.
Such thinking requires time for digestion
and contemplation of the course material.
This just isn't possible for some courses at
the break-neck pace of a six-week course.
It may be that some courses are suited to
a short term, but it seems likely that these
courses wouldn't be the sort to satisfy the
Gordon Rule.
I realize the first exposure some Gators-
to-be get to UF is a course they take in the
summer B session before their first fall
semester. Given the daunting nature of the
combined steps of leaving home, settling in


Gainesville and starting school, many new
Gators would benefit from education about
how to use the library, time management or
study skills. But the notion that a pre-first
year student or a student set to graduate
at the end of the summer could benefit aca-
demically from an intensive writing course
is misguided.
On top of it all, to teach a course in the
summer, a graduate teaching assistant must
be registered. As we all know, registration
isn't free. Perhaps there is an overriding
reason that courses inappropriate for a six-
week term are offered.
Even though writing courses offered in
summer A and B don't seem to be helping
the students enrolled or the graduate as-
sistants teaching them, these courses must
be doing some good for UF or at least UF
must be doing well for itself.

Baseball record not that big of a deal
I am writing to address the Barry Bonds
home run record controversy. A new name
and number have taken the baseball throne.
Barry Bonds. 756.
What has surprised me most about the
reaction to this groundbreaking feat even
more so than the focus on steroids is how


passionate the collective nostalgia of the
American baseball-watching public has been.
While watching the wave of commentary
over the past 24 hours, I have noticed a divide
between the older and younger journalists
and their reactions to No. 756.
It seems the older journalists are more
vehemently opposed to Bonds' feat. Is it be-
cause they have a higher sense of moral obli-
gation to the game of baseball? Perhaps. But
I also think they have had Hammerin' Hank
and 755 in their heads for much longer.
Mark Grace said that he likes that the
new record was hit in his era. Are these older
journalists frustrated that 755 has become an
obsolete stat of their own?
Look, it is way too early to try to put this
record in a historical context, even ones based
solely on generational differences. The chap-
ter on the steroid era is far from complete.
Bud Selig is still pursuing results from the
Mitchell investigation, and we do not know
how high Bonds is going to go on the field.
Instead of immediately making a judg-
ment call on whether Barry Bonds is a greater
home-run hitter than Hank Aaron (or even
Babe Ruth), it may be wise to simply get
used to saying a name other than Aaron and
a number larger than 755. The way it looks
now, that is going to be hard enough.

SG honors student


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

UF's Student Senate
wrapped up its last summer
session Tuesday night, but
ended the final meeting on
a somber note before taking
its two-week break between
semesters.
The Senate's last order
of business was a resolution
honoring the life of recently
deceased UF student Garrett
Hodge.
The resolution, which
passed unanimously, men-
tioned he was an Eagle Scout
and received a humanitarian
award two years in a row for
his "selflessness and generos-
ity to others."
Sen. Ryland Rogers,


chairman of the Judiciary
Committee, said Hodge was
one of his Phi Delta Theta
Fraternity brothers.
Hodge drowned July 28 in
a hotel pool in Sonoma, Calif.,
Rogers said.
According to an article in
The Palm
Student .Beach Post,
overnmeOnt Hodge was
also a swim-
mer.
The 24-year-old psycholo-
gy senior's accident happened
the night, before another fra-
ternity brother's wedding,
Rogers added.
Rogers said similar resolu-
tions are usually written when
a UF student dies, and framed
copies are sent to family mem-
bers.

UPD warns underage drinkers


By MARK HALL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Each year, UF and local law
enforcement are charged with the
task of preventing students from
drinking underage.
But as many students under
the age of 21 know, when it comes
down to it, the responsibility of
eliminating underage drinking
belongs to them.
University Police Department
Sgt. Henry Spurlin believes UF
currently does a good job market-
ing the law and the importance
of legal drinking, especially to
freshmen.
Freshman admission at UF has
been increasing over the years,
and the trend will continue this
fall with an incoming freshman
class of 10,294, according to the
UF Web site.
Spurlin said UPD offers infor-
mation about the laws and con-
sequences of underage drinking
through freshman orientations,
and they also have brief seminars


during summer Preview sessions.
A marketing campaign also
was established to curb illegal
drinking..
The project included newspa-
per advertisements, online fact
sheets and posters in campus
buildings and on the sides of
buses.
"Personal responsibility
goes a long way, but it's
also the responsibility of
the nightclubs to check
for fake IDs."
Sgt. Henry Spurlin
UPD officer

However, UF's Student Health
Care Center conducted a survey
last year about students' drinking
habits, and about 51 percent of the
freshman class admitted to drink-
ing at least one alcoholic drink per
week. More than 7 percent admit-
ted to drinking 11 or more drinks
per week.


Spurlin acknowledged that the
decision and responsibility of pro-
tecting the law lies in the hands of
students and businesses.
"Personal responsibility goes a
long way, but it's also the respon-
sibility of the nightclubs to check
for fake IDs," he said. ,
UF and UPD recognize that
some students will drink regard-
less of their marketing efforts, he
said, so they continue to enforce
the law while protecting students
who will potentially break it.
UF sophomore Michelle Vo ad-
mits she has consumed alcohol in
Gainesville cubs even though she
is only 18.
"I feel like .a lot of the clubs
aren't doing a lot to prevent un-
derage drinking," Vo said.
She is a regular at many cubs
in town, she said, and she ac-
knowledges the risks that under-
age students often take to party
each week.
"People know that going
downtown, there is a chance that
they will get caught," she said.

NATIONAL

Antidiscrimination ad


features UF president


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

UF President Bernie Machen was
included in a full-page, antidiscrimi-
nation advertisement in The New
York Times on Wednesday along with
about 400 universities.
The ad, paid for by the American
Jewish Committee, stated that
Britain's University and College
Union's boycott of Israeli academic
institutions is wrong.
The union, which represents
120,000 instructors, voted in May to
urge members to "consider their fu-
ture relationships and exchanges with
Israeli academics," according to a June
article in The Times.
The vote did not impose a direct
boycott.


The statement, "Boycott Israeli
Universities? Boycott Ours, Too!" was
boxed in by the names of hundreds of
British, American and Israeli universi-
ties.
According to a letter underneath
the statement, Columbia University
President Lee
Bollinger wrote that
snubbing Israeli
block "enlighten-
ment, empathy,
and a much-need-
ed international
Machen marketplace of
ideas."
UF spokesman Steve Orlando said
UF endorsed the ad to take a stand.
against discrimination. He said it was
not meant to antagonize any Israel-
opposing groups.


Fans gear up; tickets sell out


By LINDSEY STEVENS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Less than a month before the first football
game of the season, every home game is sold
out, and it's likely because Florida fans are
hopeful a national title can be repeated.
Mark Masson, a graduate assistant at the
University Athletic Association, said 21,500
student season tickets were sold this year. He
said he thinks because of the Gators' 2006 na-
tional championship, people are more eager
for this upcoming season.
"This is some of the most demand we
have had for tickets ever, not only from the
students, but nonstudents as well," he said.
Masson said students with more UF cred-
its have a better chance of winning in the
ticket lottery.
"We like to reward students who have
been on campus herein Gainesville the lon-


gest," he said.
An estimated 90,000 football fans will
crowd into Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on game
'days during what Masson said is a very
hyped-up season.
"This is some of the most demand
we have had for tickets ever, not
only from the students, but nonstu-
dents as well."
Mark Masson
graduate assistant at the University Athletic
Association

"We have a lot of good opponents coming
here Tennessee, Auburn, Florida State,"
he said. "We have a new starting quarterback
that everyone has really caught on to. I think
that everyone is really excited for this year."

Online-poker players appeal to legislators for help


By WHITNEY WETTSTEIN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Despite Congress prohibiting on-
line-poker playing nationwide last
year, some students are still upset
about being forced to fold.
UF sophomore Daniel Allison, a
member of Poker Players Alliance,
is one of many students who used
online poker as his primary source
of income until the ban passed in
September.
"I'm not even making dose to
what I made before the ban was


passed," Allison said. "It takes
too much effort to play, and there
are thousands less people to play
against therefore, less cash pay-
out."
But students who depended
on online poker for income or just
enjoyed it as a recreational activity
may still have a fighting chance.
Florida. Congressman Robert
Wexler and former Sen. Alfonse
D'Amato, who is also chairman of
the Poker Players Alliance, are fight-
ing to repeal the Unlawful Intemet
Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006,


according to the Poker Players
Alliance Web site.
The act prohibits the transfer of
funds from a financial institution
to an Intemet gambling site, but
"fantasy" sports, online lotteries
and horse racing are exempt from
the law.
Wexler gave a speech at the
World Series of Poker asking to ex-
dude poker from the online-gaming
ban, classifying it as a skill-based
game and "as much our pastime as
baseball," according to the Web site.
Many students have joined the


"I think the bill has a really
good chance to pass, due
to the fact that they are
Portraying it as.a game of
skill."
Daniel Allison
UF sophomore

Poker Players Alliance to support
Wexler's Skill Game Protection
Act, according to the Poker Players
Alliance's Facebook group.


"I think the bill has a really good
chance to pass, due to the fact that
they are portraying it as a game of
skill," Allison said.
The Poker Players Alliance's Web
site urges people concerned to write
letters to their representatives or
senators to increase the bill's chance
of passing.
Many players are doing what
they can, and meanwhile, they await
the outcome of their efforts.
"Until something is done, I have
applied for student loans," Allison
said.

long.
"One week it'll look one way, and the next week it
will change before the fans' very eyes," McGarity said.
"Everyone's able to put up with a little inconvenience
for a long-term gain."
Also at the southwest comer, there will be a three-
story football shrine with a hall of fame, a nearly 4,000
square-foot room for banquets, and a bigger workout
room for the athletes, according to the site.
McGarity said he thinks the new weight room,
which will be nearly three times bigger than the cur-
rent one, is the best part of the project.
"It's probably the most exciting part, and it's prob-

and five other faculty members..
The memo also named Kyle Cavanaugh, the se-
nior vice president for UF administration, as chair-
man.
A July memo from Machen mentioned a list of
penny-pinching ideas for the task force to discuss.
The list included reducing energy and utility ex-
penses, implementing more energy con-
UF servation, "outsourcing specific func-
Alumni tions and activities" of UF and using
electronic delivery for some previously
printed and mailed publications.
A report from the Physical Plant Division stated
UF is also cutting energy expenditures to save extra
money.
UF spokesman Steve Orlando said reducing en-
ergy costs is nothing new for UF.
Though the debt will soon cause cuts all over
campus, he said working toward more efficient en-
ergy use has been an ongoing effort.
In a July interview, UF Provost Janie Fouke said
another possibility could be implementing an incen-
tive program to encourage students to take more
credit hours.
Each credit hour costs $112.33.
The requirement for 12 credit hours would not
change, but UF might offer rewards to students who
take more hours, such as better chances at football
.tickets or priority course registration, she said.


ably the one thing that the general public will never
see," he said. "Down at the ground floor is where
everything really happens."
Though planning for the renovations began in
August 2005, construction began in February.
Sonal Patole, a UF medical student, said the sta-
dium renovations are probably worth the time and
money.
"I think, considering that a lot of money comes in
from the program, it's important," Patole said. "It's not
necessary, I'm sure," she said, "but it makes the school
look good."
McGarity said the first phase of the construction,
the renovations of gate 18, at Gale Lemerand Drive
and Stadium Road, would be finished in time for this
year's football season.

Internet sites help bolster music collections


Music is one thing most of us can't live
without. The problem is we can't always
afford it.
The radio is free, but you have to deal
with commercials and songs you'd prefer
to skip. Downloading music without pay-
ing for it is usually illegal. And buying the
latest releases can run up a high bill when
trying to keep updated on your favorite
musicians.
Here are a few legal and generally free
Web sites for your listening pleasure.

Pandora.com
This site assists you in expanding your


music spectrum.
Type in a band or song name you like,
and it will generate music with similar
styles. You can create a radio station of songs
you like and skip over songs that don't meet
your needs.
After you create a few radio stations, you
will have to register to become a member.
Once signed in as a member, you may be
asked for minimal fees.

Datpiff.com
A friend known as King J told me about
this site. A self-proclaimed rapper, he de-
scribed the site as offering fresh, free music.


If you love rap and rhythm and blues,
Datpiff.com offers free mix-tapes. Deejays
post their tapes to earn recognition and
possibly jobs. All the music is copyrighted
and downloading is free. Musicians are free
to remove their music if they feel the site
infringes on their rights.
You can listen to songs solo, but you can
only download entire tapes. If you're a mem-
ber you can download numerous mix-tapes
simultaneously. Otherwise, downloads are
limited to one at a time.

Slacker.com
For those who love radio without com-


mercials and
can't afford XM
Radio, look no
further. This site MEGAN HERON
allows listeners to
browse stations or create their own. Similar
to Pandora, you can search by genre or mu-
sician and create a station. When listening,
the site shows what song will follow.

These sites, along with many others avail-
able, allow for easy, legal listening. Instead
of pirating music through LimeWire, hone
in on the free tunes at your fingertips.

Need for Speed


Ocala Speedway hosts Figure 8 race with modified school buses


STEPHANIE GRANADA I AVENUE WRITER


Everything has its place in the world.
For retired Nlanon County school buses,
that place is the Ocala Speedway.
Three times a year, close to a dozen re-
furbished school buses feel the asphalt bur
under their tires once more while experi-
enced racers satisfy their need for speed.
For more than a decade, the Ocala
Speedway has featured the crowd favorite
"School Bus Figure 8" races.
During the race, vehicles cross at an in-
tersection in the middle of the track instead
of following the traditional oval racetrack
shape.
"To have these big old things that ev-
eryone drove to school in heading towards
each other at the intersection is really excit-
ing," said Mike Peters, the Ocala Speedway
owner.
When Peters bought the track in 2005,
the previous owners has stopped featuring


the school bus races. He realized the fans
missed the yellow bus spectacular and de-
cided to bring it back.
"It is something the fans really enjoy, es-
pecially the kids," Peters said. "At halftime
we let people ride in the buses."
Ocala Speedway racers also enjoy the
prospect of racing in the school bus divi-
sion.
"It is something that is fun for them,"
Peters said: "There is practically a waiting
list for these guys to get a bus."
Larry Welter first started racing school
buses three years ago when a friend offered
him abus.
His first race was also his first time
driving a bus, and since then he has been
hooked.
"I like the excitement of crossing through
the intersection," Welter said. "When you
are crossing that X there is always a chance
of someone hitting you."

Welter said-many drivers get race
scared when approaching the inter- pri
section, but he does not hesitate.
"If I get hit, I get hit," Welter said.
"The fans are waiting for someone to
get hit."
In a December race Welter was in-
volved in an entanglement that resulted
in another bus turning over. No one n as
hurt, and audiences were happy with what
they saw.
"Everyone just got out of their seats, and
they were cheering and hollering," Welter
said.
He realized then the crowds weren't just
there for nostalgic reminders of childhood
days.

Living on the Edge
Al th ou gh he Yellow machines average
top speeds ot about '5 I miles per hour on the
track, the drivers often feel the handling to
be more of a challenge than racing in their
normal divisions.
"My first couple
of laps scared me.
I wasn't sure what
"to do," Welter said.
"After a couple of
*. laps I got the feel

only experi- enced drivers wearing
fire suits, gloves and helmets to participate.
On Oct. 14, 2006, a Lake County Sheriff,
Chris Daniels, was killed during a school
bus race at the New Smyrna Speedway
when his bus flipped over and he was
ejected from the bus.
Daniels was said to not have been wear-
ing a seat belt at the time of the accident and
was racing with the bus door open.
But racers at the Ocala Speedway are not
too concerned about potential accidents.
"We have to have racing seats and seat-
belts that are bolted into the bus," Welter
said. "We are not going anywhere."

A New Life
A hopeful racer cannot drive a school
bus off scho-'nl ground and onto the track.
The buses must undergo a process to
achieve racing status.
Peters purchases buses from auctions
for about $500 to $1,000. The drivers then
buy the buses from the speedway.
The new school bus drivers often spend
hours making modifications and decorat-
ing their buses with funny phrases and
flashy art designed to catch the spectators'
attention.
Before the buses can be aesthetically
transformed, they must be modified for
safety.
Windows, headlights and tail lights are
removed to reduce debris. A steel firewall
is set up to separate the drivers from the
fuel tank, and the emergency door is re-
moved.
The owners also have the option of
removing the passenger seats and front
door, as well.
The drivers then unleash their inner
artists on the buses. Buses may be lavishly
decorated or remain as the traditional, old-
fashioned child transporter.
"There really are no parameters on
what the drivers can do with the buses,"
Peters said.

Exhibit demonstrates link between virtual and physical


TRACY LOOPE I AVENUE WRITER


Ever wonder how you are con-
nected to those 2 billion people in
your MySpace network?
So did Mary Tillman, a UF stu-
dent finishing her master's degree
in fine arts.
She said people are connected in
virtual worlds but do not know the
people they are connected to on a
physical level.
Her thesis project, an art exhibit
titled "Sets and Subsets," connects
those who may not have met on a
physical level.
"It's a facade of connection, it'd
be nice to have a real connection,"
Tillman said.
Her inspiration came from the


Menlo College directory she found
in a thrift store. The book featured
former students along with current
home addresses and images of stu-
dents'walking on the campus.
Although much of the informa-
tion is not outdated because the
.book was from the 1980s, Tillman
was fascinated by the way these
connections worked and wanted to
pursue personal connections more
through her art, she said.
Her thesis exhibit features, two
elements: a gigantic book, and an
installation.
The 26-by-18-inch book sits on
top of a 6-by-12-foot table and covers
the table when opened. However, it


doesn't open like a normal book, but
as more of a jigsaw puzzle connect-
ing people .
She began the book by making
an organic background and letting
the colors decide what shapes to
make.-
Then she made screens of the
people walking around campus she
found in the directory that served
as a secondary background. Next,
she devoted each page to a different
person in her MySpace network by
making a photographic silkscreen
of the name and icon from each


MySpace page. Each person was
printed in a different color and con-
nected to others by tangential lines.
"It's whatever the reader does
with the pages that determines the
relationships of the people," Tillman
said.
Along with the connecting book
is an insulation wall.
The large graywall soon will be
filled with the screens of the pictures
and icons of people who chose
to participate in Tillman's exhibit
through Tillman's MySpace site,
called "Hello Open and Close."


IH you want to learn more about Tillman's artistic bridge between the virtual
and the physical worlds, visit http.//myspace.com/helloopenandclose.
"Sets and Subsets" opens to the public Monday at the Focus Gallery in Fine
Arts Building C. The opening reception will be Aug. 24 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.


The participants will be able to
come to the opening reception Aug.
24 and move their pieces where they
want along the wall. They also will
be able to connect themselves with
others who they have only known
in the virtual world through differ-
ent colored yarn.
Although many of the par-
ticipants will not be present at the
opening, they will be able to use
the MySpace page to show where
they want to place their pieces and
which people they want to be con-
nected to.
This physical interaction is some-
thing Tillman believes is imperative
in today's society.
"Maybe I could introduce people
With similar interests,"she said.,...

'Simpsons' film nothing new


After years of hype and almost
two decades of shows, "The Simpsons
Movie" was finally released. And it's
exactly what you expect.
It is warm and clever, reminiscent of
some of the best episodes, but nothing
too spectacular.
It is evident from the first scenes of
the film that the writers have labored
constantly to keep the jokes coming.
The films packs in every possible
gag it can. The vehicle for this barrage
of jokes involves Homer, voiced by the
ever-perfect Dan Castellaneta, dooming
Springfield by dumping a critical amount
of toxic waste into the nearby lake.
This action alienates his friends,
neighbors and even his family. Homer
spends the rest of the film trying to fix it
all. The movie travels from the comfort-
able center of town all the way to the far
reaches of Alaska.
Overall the film manages to be smart,
but not outstanding. This is the curse of
being on the air for 18 seasons.
As intoned by a clever South Park epi-
sode ("Simpsons Already Did It"), nearly
everything has been done by this land-
mark show, and as a result, it is nearly
impossible for James L. Brooks and Matt
Groening to top themselves.
One of the major problems stems from
the nature of a feature-length film. In the
final third, a bit of discomfort sets in. This
is the manifestation of something I like to
call the "two-episode effect" the view-
er can only really watch two episodes of
any sitcom in a row before the jokes stop
being funny, and they continue to watch'
merely for the sake of watching.
The voice acting from all our favor-


ites Julie.
Kavner, Nancy
Cartwright,
Yeardley Smith,
Harry Shearer,
Hank Azaria
and many
more return, MARK KEREMEDJIEV
meaning that
practically every major character from
the series makes one appearance or an-
other (the two cameos from Professor
Frink were my personal favorites).
The guest celebrity appearances are
also fun.
Green Day sets the right tone for the
film in the opening scenes and covers the
classic Simpsons theme splendidly.
The movie is funny and coasts along
nicely, but it's unfortunate that some of
the greatest scenes were given away by
the previews.
The movie is a fun tribute to the quint-
essential American family and is worth a
watch. It reminds the viewer what was
funny and clever about "The Simpsons"
in the first place. Unfortunately, there is
enough of that on DVD to keep the movie
from being exceptional.

Terrell's grills up barbecue


CHRIS MYERS )
AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Nothing tastes better on a summer
afternoon than home-cooked barbecue,
and Terrell's Barbecue To Go, owned
by Terrell and Lesia Beard, serves up
the perfect Southern meal.
Terrell's is a natural outgrowth of
the family get-togethers the Beard
family held every weekend.
"We would just hang out in fam-
ily gatherings on weekends and cook
barbecue," Lesia said. "We feel that
people want barbecue the most on
weekends."
Love of weekend barbecues led the
Beards to operate the restaurant only
Thursday through Saturday.
Working only three days a week at
the restaurant allows Terrell and Lesia
a lot of free time to do work that is
close to their hearts at Enduring Faith
Ministries.
"It's absolutely wonderful working
three days a week," Lesia said. "We
have other time to work the ministry
because we're pastors. So we love hav-.
ing that time off."
The restaurant started in Ocala,
where Terrell's brother- owns
Roosevelt's Barbecue.
"We branched out to Gainesville be-
cause we had a lot of customers com-
ing from Gainesville," Lesia said.


~btee lr~ter'rletN


Terrell's values its dedicated cus-
tomers and relies on them to stay in
operation.
"I come all the way from Palatka
to get the barbecue here," customer
Bertha Davis said. "We've been com-
ing here for two years. The attitude is
just perfect."
Terrell's serves various types of bar-
becue ranging from ribs to shredded
pork sandwiches and chicken.
Most items on the menu, such as
the pork or beef sandwiches, are less
Than $5.
Lesia Beard and her husband Terrell
are always happy to cook up some sat-
isfaction for all patrons.
"It's like a family affair," Lesia said.
"We've been cooking barbecue for
years."
With two locations in Gainesville,
UF students are just a stone's throw
away from some of the best barbecue
in the Southeast.
For more information, call 367-1400
or 367-2787.

1130 N.E. 16th Ave. and 1323 S.

Local rapper


Dash strives to make creative hip-hop


AVANTI JOHNSON I
AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER
Some people's rise to the top
begins in their 20s, but Jameyel
Johnson had a head start on the rest
of the competition.
At 22 years old, he has been in-
volved in the music industry since
he was 12, making him a veteran
before reaching his 30s.
:A UF graduate with a degree in
computer science, Johnson is living
his dream as a musician and pro-
ducer called J. Dash.
"I started producing when I was
12, and at 14, I had been shadowing
with other producers, as well," he
said.
Dash got his name when he went
into the studio with another artist
who was impressed -with the qual-
ity of the four beats he managed to
make in an hour.

Gaining Recognition
Dash is the CEO of SlapDash


Productions, a company he started
at 19 years old.
"I didn't want to borrow money
from anyone," he said.
He started SlapDash without
Assistance from outside contracts,
investors or government assistance.
Three years later, Dash is on the
brink of releasing his second solo
album, "Something Else: Music for
the Colorblind."
The songs gained inspiration
from.colors that Dash felt when he
created each song. The colors in-
cluded platinum, green and bone.
Most musicians aspire to attain
the light at the end of the tunnel a
record deal.
Dash is no different in his pur-
suit, but he is far less willing to
compromise than most.
He's already turned down sev-
eral record deals, including offers
by Atlantic Records and Capitol
Records, he said.
"I don't feel like I'm waiting for
anybody or anything, it's just me,"
he said. "It's not about the fame. I
would rather just appreciate people


Sand the music. Its less about me and
more so about the movement."
The SlapDash Productions family
consists of Mike Ham, Dred Gator,
Matthew Wiese and Jeremy Mincey,
a former UF football player and cur-
rent linebacker for the Jacksonville
Jaguars.
"I work with between 30 to 40
artists. I'm looking to take a lot more
people under my
wing.- When it It's not
comes together, it would ra
will be beautiful,"
Dash said. ate peop
Wiese, Dash's It's less about
partner, allowed about the
J. Dash to find J. Das
the creativity he musician and
needed in order
to complete his
second album.
"Labels many times don't allow
you to be creative. Matthew Wiese
and I recorded about 30 tracks,"
Dash said. "He allowed me to be
stupid sometimes. I wouldn't have
done my second record without
him."

The New Record
The new album showcases the
change in J. Dash himself. "I'll be a
Habit" makes excellent use of saxo-
phone and percussion. The album is
infused with piano, an instrument
Dash has played since he was five
years old.
"Multiplicativerandomicitus"
talks about being the most ridicu-
lous song ever
bout the fame. I recorded. There
herjust appreci- is running piano,
and the music, percussion and a
pace so fast it is
7e and more so hard to keep up
movement. as Dash speeds
through words
oducer and rhythms.
There are
17 tracks on
"Something Else: Music for the
Color Blind." The album embodies
something for everyone and in-
dudes influences from country and
blues. The album would be difficult
to classify as strictly urban, pop or
even jazz.
According to Dash, there are no


weak songs, creating a consistency
for the duration of the album. He
had the freedom to be creative and
hopes he will be recognized as an
individual.
Disc jockeys and listeners often
compare Dash to musical talents
such as Kanye West and Andre 3000,
but Dash says he can't be compared.
He fits only into that category be-
cause, like those fellow artists, he
is outside the box and walks','y
from the norm.
"I'm all about growth. The way
you see me right now, you will not
see me in five years," Dash said.
"Everything you hear will always
be better than the last. If not, what is
the point of making it?"

J. Dash's new album is avail-
Sable for download from iTunes,
Rhapsody, Napster and his
Myspace page,

UF FOOTBALL

Jackson looks to regain starting safety position


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

Kyle Jackson's career path has
been a case study in being on the
right train, but the wrong track.
Jackson hit the ground running
as a freshman in 2004, starting in
five games and grabbing two inter-
ceptions while creating high future
expectations for the then-freshman
safety.
Jackson continued his solid play
in 2005, until the infamous Alabama
game on Oct. 1.
UF fans can't help but remem-
ber how the Gators were soundly
beaten 31-3 by the Crimson Tide and
how Kyle Jackson was picked on by
quarterback Brodie Croyle which
included an 87-yard touchdown
pass to receiver Tyrone Prothro.
Jackson lost his starting job
shortly thereafter, and has struggled
to get back on the field since. But
after Reggie Nelson and several
others departed for the NFL after
last season's national champion-
ship, Jackson is looking to get back
on the field.
"We've got a lot of talented guys
out here, but we also need leader-
ship out here," Jackson said. "I think
I'm going to bring that to those guys.
I've been a starter here and I think
my knowledge and my experience


can be a good thing." job. Though he's battling for playing
Jackson's leadership and experi- time with freshmen such as upstart
ence are what he's leaning on most safety Major Wright, he takes his job
as he seeks to reclaim his starting as a mentor to the younger players


seriously.
"It's just about talking to them
and helping them out," Jackson
said. "I was a young guy once, I

was a freshman. I started my fresh-
man year, and I'mjust trying to help
them out with anything the-need,
whether its explaining plays or any-
thing like that."
The senior may be embracing
his role as an elder statesman on a
young defense, but one has to won-
der if he has put the fitful memories
of Alabama behind him.
It appears he has. Jacks6n says
thoughts of that game remain in the
back of his mind, and he's simply
focusing on this season with this
group of players.
"I was a young guy once, I
was a freshman. I started
my freshman year, and I'm
just trying to help them out
with anything they need,
whether it's explaining
plays or anything like that."

"I'm not worried about none of
those games," Jackson said. "It's a
new year and I'm working out hard.
I had a good spring and am going to
come back in the fall and do what I
need to do."

Fayson ready for impact


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

There were times last season when
Jarred Fayson thought he might have made
the wrong decision.
Originally a quarterback from
Hillsborough High School in Tampa,
Fayson had difficulty finding a niche dur-
ing his freshman year.
Looking to sidestep the shadows of
former Gators quarterback Chris Leak and
current starter Tim Tebow, Fayson arrived
in Gainesville as a playmaking receiver
looking to grow in an already loaded of-
fense.
He struggled, bringing in only one re-
ception the entire season. However, there
were times when Fayson showed signs


of potential. In a game against Western
Carolina, Fayson rushed seven times for
77 yards, including his lone trip to the end
zone.
'", &' 4 After a disappointing
season, Fayson admits
he struggled with the
prospect of leaving the
r Gators, but one year
later the idea is just an
afterthought.
"All freshman go
Fayson through that type of
thing at one point and
time," he said. "You come into a new age
and life, and I definitely was going through
that. Now things are different; I'm well pre-
pared. I'm ready to take the field."

UF defense looks to rebuild


* THE GATORS ARE REPLACING
NINE DEFENSIVE STARTERS.

By JEFF MILLER
Alligator Writer

Three hundred sixty-nine tackles, 14.5
sacks and 14 interceptions.
That's what six of the most produc-
tive UF-defenders totaled last season,
and that's just part of the hole left to the
Gators by the departures of Earl Everett,
Brandon Siler, Jarvis Moss, Reggie Nelson,
Ryan Smith and Ray McDonald.
Anchoring the defense for the 2007
edition of the Gators are Tony Joiner (se-
nior safety) and'Derrick Harvey (junior
defensive end). As Harvey said, it's their
duty to bring along the younger players.
"We learn every day," Harvey said
after practice Tuesday evening. "We've
got a great coach; we've got a lot of good
talent we're gonna take a little minute,
but we're gonna get it."


Harvey spent his summer in the
weight room, where he took his 6-foot-4-
inch frame from 262 pounds to just more
than 275.
In 2006, the Maryland native recorded
team highs in. sacks (11) and tackles for
losses (13).
"I've gotta lead," Harvey said. "I work
hard every day, stay big, so
Gators the other dudes can follow
Defense my example."
After three days of
practice, third-year UF coach Urban
Meyer-pinpointed some young defensive
talent.
Freshman Major Wright is thought by
many to be the up-and-coming safety, in-
cluding Meyer.
"Major Wright has really stood out,"
Meyer said.
He added that unless Wright "turns
into something else" when he puts on the
pads for game day, hell play.

Basketball schedule lacks substance, flair in post-championship era


OK, Rowdy Reptiles, I know
the start of basketball season may
seem far away, but let's take a
moment to talk a little hoops.
UF announced its schedule
last week, much to the ire and
hysteria of thrill seekers around
The Gator Nation. Well, maybe
not, but let's try to ignore that
for now.
Let's break-down the schedule
for the 2007-08 season, but be
careful, it may not be for the faint
of heart.
I think one of my most antici-
pated moments of the New Year
is the Gators' first game. I mean,
what could be better? A packed
O'Dome, fans dressed as super-
heroes, a grim reaper sighting (if
you're lucky) and, of course, an
absolutely ridiculous opponent.
Now, I know this is done on
purpose, and it's simply an ex-
hibition game, but that doesn't
mean we can't marvel at some
of the teams that make the trip to
Gainesville in early November.
This year, we're honored with
the presence of Flagler College,
which for those of you who
don't know-is located in beau-
tiful, historic downtown St.


Augustine.
A great place, sure, if you love
.ghost towns and the Fountain of
Youth. I remember taking one
of these trips, somewhat disap-
pointed, but giddy at the idea
that I had to use a bathroom
supposedly haunted and over
200 years old. Now say what you
will about my mental state at the
time, but let's get back on topic.
Sitting beautifully right in the
middle of town is a school with
an enrollment of 2,246 and, most
importantly, a spooked women's
wing. The story is foggy .to me,
but I think a homesick girl com-
mitted suicide and then proceed-
ed to haunt students.
Exciting? Yes. Do I sound
like a pamphlet? Maybe. But I
just want you to imagine what
this basketball team is going to
look like. I am personally over-
whelmed with excitement.
As hard as this is, let's move
on. OK, skipping'over Lynn
and North Dakota State. North
Dakota State. Sorry, I just had
to say it again. Two more awful
teams, and ahh, a real opponent
well, sort of.
-.Rutgers heads to UF's .gym


17. Now,
Rutgers
isn't exact-
ly a power-
house, but
Danny Klein they play
Klein Drive in the Big
dklein@alligator.org East and,
at times, do
have their moments. This doesn't
look like one of their finer years
coming in, but then again, the
Gators are so young that you
never know. Rutgers is a real bas-
ketball team, which should make
you jump at this blockbuster
game early on.
The next team worth men-
tioning is the annual near-
Thanksgiving-feast that is
Florida State. This year, the
Seminoles will take their turn
invading UF's campus, which
should make for some great
barbecuing, if you know what I
mean.
So, if you. are actually in
Gainesville for this one, you
shouldn't miss it. Lately, the
Seminoles have found a way
to embarrass the Gators in this
sport. Does rushing the court


mean anything to you reptile
fans? Al Thornton is gone, but
then again, so is the entire Gators
starting five. It should be fun,
so loosen up the buttons for this
one.
.Time to skip another round
of terrible opponents, includ-
ing back-to-back games against
teams that end with "Southern."
On to the much anticipated pit
stop in Columbus, Ohio, where
our new and greatest friends, the
Buckeyes, welcome the Gators
into their home.
This would be an intriguing
game, honestly it would, except
for the fact that the rivalry prob-
ably died when all the players
involved left. No Greg Oden, no
Mike Conley Jr., no Ron Lewis,
and so on and so forth. This game
is on CBS, which means we can
hear how unique this matchup
has become, but even if you ig-
nore the fact that UF owns this
squad, it's not nearly the same
as before.
The Gators then play Temple
in Sunrise, Fla., which I have to
admit, boggles my mind. Why is
this game at a neutral site? I'm
sure there's a reasonable explana-


tion. Oh well, does it even really
matter?
Next, and for everyone's sake
I'm going to gloss over High
Point,-whatever that is- and
head to SEC play. Even though
the SEC conference may be the
most overrated in all of college
basketball, this will still be. quite
a test for the Gators. I'm guessing
by this point it may have become
clearer what type of team UF has
to offer, and it will be easier to
gauge just how trying this road
through the South will actually
be.
SRegardless, for any young
team it would be rough. One
thing the SEC has going for it
is its discordant and passionate
fans.
Here we will see just how
poised the Gators reall.are,
and if Nick Calathes, Marreese
Speights and Jai Lucas are, in
fact, the real deal.
From here on ofit, it's business
as usual. Visit Alabama (chant
"overrated"), head to Mississippi
(Breathing -prohibited), visit
Tennessee (mock Bruce Pearl),
and end with Kentucky, b'how,
you know the deal.

Jackson puts in extra effort, excited by young talent

himnlf to the weight room in the
spring, putting in extra work with
strength coach Mick Mariotti.
Jackson says he would stay
behind every day and get some
extra work in with Mariotti.


The extra work is necessary for
Jackson as he tries to fill the large
defensive hole left by Nelson.
Defensive backs coach Chuck
Heater thinks the transition from
Nelson to Jackson will be smooth
because of Jackson's experience,
and further feels being behind
Nelson on the depth chart in the
past was nothing to be ashamed


"Kyle's always been a good
player, but it's tough when
you've got a guy like Reggie
Nelson around who happens
to be a first-round pick for the
Jacksonville Jaguars," Heater
said. "He was such a great player.
But Kyle's a great kid who brings
great leadership and we expect


good things from him throughout
the year."
If Jackson can turn .things
around, he'll play a key role for a
defense that returns just two start-
ers from last season's incarnation.
"We lost a lot of guys from last
year, but we've got a.lot of young
talent," Jackson said. "We've gott
guys just flying around out here."

DEFENSE, from page 25


FAYSON, from page 25


Fayson looks to be more involved this sea-
son, as the sophomore has now become one of
the team's elder receivers.
Aside from senior Andre Caldwell and ju-
nior Louis Murphy, the Gators feature a slew
of freshmen and sophomores vying for posi-
tions as wideout.
Fayson, who roomed with former UF re-
ceiver Dallas Baker, has now moved in with
Caldwell. Fayson said Caldwell has helped
him mature and taught him how to set an
example.
"I run a 4.35, but them boys run
4.2s. But it's OK, because I out-
weigh them by 10 pounds."
Jarred Fayson
UF wide receiver

"The stuff I learn from [Caldwell] I just
keep passing down," Fayson said: stuff I
learned from Dallas, too. I just hope that the
younger guys take heed and listen so they can
be better off."
Fayson believes his role in the offense has
grown considerably. In the upcoming season,
he expects not only to play, but also to make a
serious impact.
"I've just been coming out here every day
and Sying to work hard," he said. "I'm sup-
posed to do some running back stuff and still
remain as a wide receiver. So right now it's
50/50. We'll just have to see, I guess."
According to Fayson, his days of manning
the huddle may be in jeopardy.
"We talked about it, but we haven't prac-
ticed anything," he said. "So I'm not too sure.
It's still up in the air."
Fayson, at 6 feet, 220 pounds, has been
heralded for his speed and elusiveness. He
said he might be one of the quickest players
on the team, but not quite on the same level as

Caldwell and sophomore Percy Harvin.
"Irun a 4.35, but them boys run 4.2s. But it's
OK, because I outweigh them by 10 pounds,"
he said, smiling. "But you know, it's all love. If
you put our whole team together, we're pretty
fast, so that's all that matters."
Offensive coordinator Dan Mullen said he


believes Fayson will play a vital role in this
year's Gators squad.
"It's tough to come into the SEC as a true
freshman and make a huge impact," Mullen
said. "He's had his year to learn the offense
and we're expecting a lot of out him this
year."


Heading the crew of line-
backers has been sophomore
linebacker Brandon Spikes,
who saw action in nine of last
season's 14 games. During his
freshman season, Spikes had
15 tackles and broke up two
passes.
"Spikes is trying to be a
leader, and I think he is. ... He
has to be a man in there like Siler
was."
Some of
the biggest
gaps in the
defense were
left by both
of last year's
starting cor-
nerbacks and
tackles; the
Meyer four posi-
tions have yet to be claimed;
and there's a slew of Gators in
contention.
The competition after the
first couple days of practice left
Meyer impressed.
"I love it," he said. "I don't
like it; I love it."
With less than a month before
UF kicks off against Western
Kentucky 'at Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium, there is a feeling of ex-
citement on the team, according
to Harvey. After all, the Gators
haven't marched onto Florida
Field since Nov. 18.
And while that may feel like a
wait to the players, the coaching
staff needs all the time it can get.
"The effort and heart's there,"
Meyer said. "We just gotta coach
'em up."


UF sophomore wide receiver Jarred Fayson runs for an 11-yard gain during the fourth
quarter of the Gators' 42-0 win against Central Florida on Sept. 9 in Gainesville.
