Fraternity suspended after weekend party


* UPD OFFICERS SEIZED 4.6
GRAMS OF MARIJUANA.

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

A UF fraternity has been tem-
porarily suspended and banned
from participating in fall recruit-
ment following charges of drug
possession at an unauthorized pre-
recruitment party.
Around 1 a.m. Saturday,
University Police Department of-
ficers charged the Pi Lambda Phi
Fraternity with a narcotics viola-
tion after responding to an anony-
mous alcohol complaint, according
to a police report.
Officers confiscated 4.6 grams
of marijuana, five pipes and
three bongs from the house at 15
Fraternity Row, according to the
report.
The value of the drugs and par-
aphernalia adds up to about $300.
Instead of criminally charging
individuals, officers wrote that
they referred the fraternity to UF's
Office of Student Judicial Affairs.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman,
said Judicial Affairs has temporar-
ily suspended the fraternity.


According to a letter from
the office to Romano Muniz, Pi
Lambda Phi's president, the frater-
nity is charged with alcoholic-bev-
erage violations, drug-possession
violations and failure to comply
with a university official.
Muniz declined to comment.
Orlando said Pi Lambda Phi,
known as Pi Lam, has 10 days to
respond to the charges.
After the fraternity responds,
he said, a hearing with the Greek
Judicial Board would probably
take place within a few weeks.
While the frater-
Judicial nity is suspended,
Affalgirs chapter meetings,
new-member educa-
tion sessions, social events, service
projects and all other activities are
not allowed.
According to the UF
Interfraternity Council's bylaws,
fraternity events involving alcohol
are prohibited in the weeks before
and during recruitment.
Participation in such events
immediately warrants a loss of
recruitment privileges, according
to the bylaws.
Ben Caswell, the council's pres-
ident, said pre-recruitment parties
give fraternities an unfair advan-

tage to recruit new members.
"We want people to make deci-
sions about a fraternity because
of the merits of the fraternity, not


based on a great party they went to
Friday night," Caswell said.
-"We work really, really hard
to establish our values, and that's


what we should be selling to kids,"
he said.

SHCC charges students for year-old visits


Over the past year, UF's Student Health Care Center has
treated 43 students without billing them.
In July, SHCC discovered its mistake and charged the stu-
dents during the Drop/Add period when unpaid costs can
block students from registering for classes.
An audit uncovered the error.
SHCC responded by chargingthe 43 students' accounts on
July 31 for services such as lab or pharmacy fees from August
2006 to July 2007, said Phil Barkley, director of SHCC.
Students were not notified beforehand, he added.
If the students did not pay off their debts before Drop/Add,
a financial hold was placed on their records.
Because none of the students had been notified, Barkley
said students probably would not know about the fees unless
they tried to register for classes during Drop/Add.
While he said he did not know how many of the 43 students


were affected during Drop/Add, he said it was a small group.
Barkley also said SHCC planned to work with affected stu-
dents to get their holds lifted.
"Certainly today I haven't done anything to make any ad-
justments to let students have those holds lifted, but surely if
students have those issues, we're willing to work With them to
make the transition possible," Barkley said.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said Barkley is working on a
plan to help the students but had nothing else to add.
Barkley said if a student realizes he or she has a SHCC-
related hold. [Ile student should .aill the SHIC C idnministratior
arid let sonmeorne there > nowr so i can
be fixed. .... -


There are multiple reasons the charges may not have been
assessed before, Barkley said.
He cited a change in a student's marital status as a pos-
sible reason for the fluke, in addition to a new medical-man-
agement system.
Barkley also said he did not know how much money had
been charged to students, but he stressed SHCC's willingness
to help.
"If you had a service a year ago and you're getting billed
now, I can see how that would be frustrating even if the ser-
vices had been delivered," Barkley said. "But we want to help
[the students] as much as we can."

UPD trains faculty, staff for 'active shooter' scenario


* THE 45-MINUTE PROGRAM HAS
BEEN OFFERED SINCE SUMMER.

By STACI WILKENSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
University Police Department has a 45-
minute program that may save your life.
UPD has been offering .a program since
summer that trains faculty, staff members
and students on how to deal with a shooter
on campus.
The presentation outlines procedures
on how a person should react if "an active
shooter," someone who aggressively shoots
others rather than holding a hostage, enters
the building where he or she is located.
"After Virginia Tech," said UPD spokes-
man Capt. Jeff Holcomb, "there was obvious
interest in trying to find out what law enforce-
ment's response would be in something like
that."
"As staff members we want to be assured
that law enforcement is prepared and able to
respond to that," he said.
The training is not mandatory, but be-
tween 350 and 400 UF faculty and staff mem-
bers have participated in the presentation,
Holcomb said.
In the event of an active shooter incident,


someone should secure the immediate area
by locking and barricading doors, according
to the UPD Web site. The lights in the room
should be turned off and occupants should
stay calm, quiet and dial 911.
"It is kind of common sense," Holcomb
said.
"You want to put a barrier between you
and the shooter, but it's one of those things. If
you haven't thought this through and some-
thing happens, a lot of people would just kind
of freeze."
The UPD Web site also advises
Public people to silence cell phones,
Safety close blinds and place signs in
windows to identify the location
of injured people.
The best way to prepare for an incident in-
volving a shooter is to have a plan of action in
advance, he said.
Holcomb said the benefit of having a plan
is that it can be instituted immediately instead
of leaving people to develop one while a
shooter is in a building.
Some staff members at UF said there were
several advantages to completing the program
and that they felt more knowledgeable about
what to do in an emergency situation.
UPD hopes that as more people find out in-
formation about the presentation, more people
will request it, Holcomb said.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Students face long lines for bicycle-repair service


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

UF students who want to fix a flat or
mend faulty brakes may face a wait if they
use Student Government's bicycle-repair
program.
Service has been erratic while SG tries
to hire more mechanics for the over-
worked program, said Will Dueease, a UF
geomatics junior who also works as an SG
bike mechanic.
In a small tent near the Reitz Union
Colonnade steps, the service provides al-
most completely free bicycle care.
Students are charged if they need

new inner tubes for their tires and must
also supply any materials not in stock.
Mechanics. will attach new parts if stu-
dents don't have the know-how.
Dueease said the fall semester has been
more hectic than summer, when he first
took the job.
More than 100 people have received
repairs in the last three days, and lines can
reach 10 to 15 people, he said.
"Last Thursday and Friday, I didn't
even want to come to work," he said.
Demand has slowed slightly, but the
program is often left unstaffed while
Dueease, who is taking 18 credits, is in
class, he said.
There is only one other mechanic who
tries to work during Dueease's classes, but
it doesn't always work out.
Dueease said the most common prob-
lems are flat tires and broken brakes, espe-
cially in cheap bicycles.
"A lot of people buy these $45 Wal-Mart
bikes," he said. "A guy came in today with
a bike he had bought from Wal-Mart sev-
eral hours before, and it wouldn't pedal."
While some problems can be fixed in a
few minutes, more significant repairs can
take up to 45 minutes.
"I don't want to do a crap job for some-
body, so even a line of six people can take
me a long time" he said. "Some people
have been irritated."
Though no hours were posted for the
service, a sign stated no service would be
available during sixth period.
Sandy Vernon, SG office manager, said
she hopes to hire two or three mechan-
ics by Tuesday. After the hirings, service
should be provided from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
every weekday, Vernon said.
SG's bicycle service is one of its most
popular and cost-efficient programs, she
added.
In the 2007 fiscal year, SG spent about
$1,300 on the program, according to re-
cords.

UF student Jume Nguyen (center) tells Nathan Ogden (left) that he should apply for a


bicycle-repair job.
Most of that money, $980.16, was spent
on a new sign and storage units, which
won't need to be replaced for years.
During the 2006-2007 fiscal year, SG
only spent an average of about $175 on
supplies.
Dueease said the service saves money
on -supplies by using parts stripped from
donated bicycles.
Kevin Jones, chairman of the depart-
ment of materials science and engineering,
waited about 30 minutes for-a mechanic to
show up around 10 a.m. Wednesday.
Jones said he was trying to get a tire
patched for his daughter, a UF junior who
blew her back tire riding to class.
He said he was able to use his own bik-
ing experience to help about six or seven
students.
"I fixed several bikes with minor prob-


lems, mostly low air," he said. "I was just
screwin' around while I waited."
Despite the wait, the service was appre-
ciated, he said.
"It's good of SG to put money into it
because a lot of students have no other
options," Jones said. "I just think it might
need more staff or funding."
Joey Hunt, a UF musical theater se-
nior, had been waiting about 35 minutes
Wednesday afternoon when he was inter-
viewed.
Hunt said his bicycle was not pedaling
properly, but he didn't know the exact
problem.
He said the wait was frustrating.
"I mean, the obvious, I just wish some-
one was here to fix it," Hunt said.-'I guess
that's why it's free. You get what you pay
for."

Program entices off-campus students with money


* THE PROJECT OFFERS
STUDENTS A SCHOLARSHIP.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

Students living off campus this
year can earn a $200 book scholar-
ship while learning how to be a
"Great Gator Neighbor."
The goal of the Community
Advocates Program, which offers


the scholarship, is to educate stu-
dents on topics such as city codes,
emergency preparedness and crime
prevention.-
The 3-year-old project will only
accept 25 applicants. The deadline
is Sept. 7.
The $200 scholarship will be
awarded to students who complete
the program.
Nora Kilroy, one of the founders
of the program and the UF director
of off-campus life, said, "We really


wanted to recognize them for giving
back to the community."
The Gainesville and University
Police Departments, SFCC and UF
are involved in the program, Kilroy
said.
Student It is SFCC's first
.. :: i" '-: year of involvement
with the program.
Kari Mattox, an
SFCC student-development special-
ist, said SFCC's participation would
open up more resources, ideas and


collaborative effort between the two
schools.
Kilroy said the program starts
weekly classes Sept. 19 and ends
Nov. 7. The classes last from 6:30 to
8:30 p.m.
GPD Cpl. Jaime Kurnick will talk
about safety tips and services GPD
offers for students.
"It's not just about us responding
to crimes," Kurnick said. "It's about
crime prevention."
Other topics include alcohol and


the community, sexual predator
awareness, city codes, community
service and civic engagement.
Students considered the DUI pre-
sentation the most interesting class
in the past, Kurnick said. It gave stu-
dents a chance to experience model
inebriation in a controlled setting.
Throughout the program, stu-
dents will work on a crime watch
or safety program, and they will
implement those programs in their
neighborhoods, Kilroy said.

UF professor examines


churches in new book


By JENNIFER BINGAMAN
Alligator Writer
jbingaman@alligator.org

Christian churches have evolved from
communities to corporations, according to
a book written by a UF English and adver-
tising professor.
James Twitchell's book, "Shopping for
God: How Christianity Went from In Your
Heart to In Your Face," is scheduled for
publication Sept. 18. It scrutinizes changing
churches and examines what those changes
could mean to American churchgoers.
Over the past four years, Twitchell
estimates he has attended more than 100
Protestant-based Christian churches across
the United States, including services in
Baptist, Methodist and Presbyterian de-
nominations.
"These churches are fun, not boring,
and they are highly entertaining," he said
in an interview.
Twitchell said the most prominent
of these sects is the nondenominational
church.
Those churches do not identify ivith
any specific Christian church. While de-
nomination-affiliated churches pay dues
to their headquarters, nondenominational
churches pocket the spare change.
Extra cash flow allows for daily services

Church Facts
*The most prominent Christian church is
the nondenominational church.
Nondenominational churches pocket
dues instead of sending them to head-
quarters such as Baptist, Methodist and
Presbyterian sects.
Money is used for more services and
technology for the services.


and two to three services on weekends.
All services have high-quality sound,
state-of-the-art music and a screen com-
parable to that of a Super Bowl JumboTron
showcasing the words to "Amazing
Grace."
Twitchell said he believes the reason for
what he calls the "megachurch" phenom-
enon is the power of language, which he
compared to brands of water.
"You know Evian is the most expensive,
Dasani is the cheap one and tap water is
free," he said.
"These churches are fun, not
boring, and they are highly
entertaining."

UF professor

"But if you put a blindfold on," he said,
"you can't tell the difference."
In a press release, Twitchell said this is
a contributing factor to how churches are
becoming a part of the mainstream they
tried to avoid.
With churches these days, it's about sell-
ing a brand, he said in the interview.
"Fifty years ago, if your father was
Presbyterian, you were a Presbyterian,"
he said.
"Now," he said, "almost 50 percent of
people change their church."
What's. different today is the goal of
some churches, he said.
Many churches he studied focus their
efforts on growth, unlike churches in the
old days that focused on stability.
If attendance drops, so will the life ex-
pectancy of the megachurch.
"If they ever stop growing, they will
start to collapse very quickly," he said.

Greek Critique

More problems plague

the Greek community
T hat didn't take long.
Call us cynical, but we aren't surprised that a fra-
ternity has already messed up just a week into the
fall semester. Pi Lambda Phi Fraternity had an unauthor-
ized pre-Recruitment party. Not only did it break the no-
alcohol-at-parties-before-and-during-Recruitment rule, it
also took it a step further: Marijuana and drug parapher-
nalia were also found in the fraternity's house.
For now, the fraternity will lose out on a whole recruit-
ment class and possibly face harsher consequences after
the investigation is concluded.
This is certainly not the first time a Greek organization
has gotten in trouble for unauthorized partying, and un-
fortunately, we know it won't be the last. To paraphrase an
old adage, frats will be frats. That will never change.
We aren't saying fraternities are bad. They provide sup-
port systems, lifelong friendships and international net-
working opportunities. They maintain, on average, higher
grade point averages than the overall student body. They
raise thousands of dollars for charity every year. Most of
the time, we can look past the popped collars and see the
brothers as outstanding citizens.
But a few bad apples spoil the bunch. A more proactive
approach should be taken to avoid further problems in the
Greek community.
It starts at the universitywide level. Maybe UF needs
stricter guidelines about drinking at fraternity and soror-
ity functions. The university should be more diligent in
making sure every Greek-affiliated event is registered by
performing random checks. UF could consider a limit on
how much alcohol can be in the house at one time, or cre-
ate a curfew for parties say, all nonresidents and alcohol
have to be out by 3 a.m.
The Greek Councils needs to step up to the plate, too.
It takes more than just making sure everyone follows the
rules. The councils also need to be more proactive in an-.
ticipating problems before they happen. They could create
stricter rules and hold more educational seminars not
just for new members, but for everyone in the organiza-
tions.
The councils also need to make sure that if the rules are
broken, the punishment fits the crime. Rather than recom-
mending weak punishments to UF, the councils should en-
dorse harsher punishments with just cause, of course.
If the councils hold their chapters to higher standards, the
chapters will get the idea and hold themselves more ac-
countable, which would help keep them from getting into
trouble in the first place.
The councils should also strive for more transpar-
ency regarding their policies. Web sites full of broken or
outdated links just open up opportunities for exploiting
loopholes or claiming ignorance about the rules. The more
information the councils make available to the public
- constitutions, bylines, regulations, requirements and so
on the more responsible they will have to be.
About 5,000 UF students are Greek. Most of the time,
they set positive examples for the Gainesville community.
Let's work harder to make sure they are viewed positively
all the time. If the, Greeks want to break down the stereo-
types they have acquired over the years, they must start
from within the organizations.

Students can help ease UF's debt woes


know, I know UF President Bernie Machen has
made resolving UF's debt problem his calling card.
But despite a cost-cutting task force, a hiring
freeze and a tuition plan without immediate short-term
benefits, one solution to the problem has not been ad-
dressed.
As UF students, faculty and staff, we are not power-
less in the fight to build upon our excellence in spite of
limited resources.
We can no longer claim ignorance or irresponsibility
as an excuse in the never-ending quest to become the
institution that best provides an affordable, top-notch
education for Florida residents.
But in the meantime, what can you do to help UF
become a better place?
Realize that full resolution is still a ways away. UF
did not accumulate debt overnight, and it won't resolve
its debt overnight. However, the following small steps
can add up to promote real change.
Make every effort to graduate in four years. In a col-
lege that graduates less than half its students on time,
even a small spike in four-year percentages can help.
Students who deliberately delay graduation not only
hurt themselves by forgoing the higher starting salary
a degree provides they also hurt future students who
find a potentially empty seat occupied. Remember, ear-
lier graduates were nice enough to leave you a seat.
Buy more goods and services from Gainesville and
the Alachua County area. More profits mean more
money for the county, and consequently, more benefits
from more sales taxes.
Consider donating money to UF after you graduate.
Even though big-money athletic boosters get the most


Vincent press, any gift amount can help the
Gagliano Gators academically or athletically.
Speaking Out Plus, donations are often tax-de-
ductible and may be matched by
the state many times over.
Join Student Government and campaign for finance
reform. If you are willing to sacrifice time and money
for the privilege of being involved in shaping university
policy and expressing heartfelt opinions on what's best
for the school, this is for you.
If you are a fraternity or sorority member, you have
the advantage of a student network and possibly have
access to campaign funds.
Send a petition to Gov. Charlie Crist asking for help
beyond the Tuition Differential Program. Rest assured
- even Machen had to ask for permission before rais-
ing tuition.
Push for legislation supporting better pay and insur-
ance for professors and teaching assistants. If instruc-
tors are not given financial incentives for good work,
they are substantially less motivated to do a good job
for the school.
Encourage friends and colleagues to implement
some of the suggestions. One person doing it alone has
a hard time, but a group of people working for a mis-
sion have a bigger voice and more ideas.
The bar of excellence for UF hasn't been lowered. If
anything, three national championships in two years,
record-setting research funds and higher-quality stu-
dents have raised expectations for UF.
We have a golden opportunity, but we must step up
to the challenge.

Many corporations responsible for employees, environment


s it possible to pinpoint the moment when
Americans decided boardroom decisions
tem solely from deception and derision?
Did the 2004 Enron debacle set tongues ablaze,
or have we long had reasons to distrust corpo-
rate America?
Since humans began to trade beads and
meat, business has ruled our psyches and
given us numerous reasons to dislike the top
dog. Our perceptions are unmistakably based
in reality. We know who built the pyramids,
and it certainly wasn't anybody wearing the
old-timey equivalent of a suit. -
Bosses have long been portrayed in the me-
dia as cigar-smoking money-hoarders because
many actually were. In the past, viewing hu-
mans as commodities and squeezing every
ounce of work out of each was quite in vogue.
This practice fell mostly out of favor after the
baby boomers were born. The humanistic par-


adigm shift of the 1960s was one of great influ-
ence not only for American society but also for
large corporations and their executives.
As the public has become more charitable
and tolerant, a large number of businesspeople
have started to believe they can run compa-
nies from a similar mindset. It's important to
note that many of today's CEOs were college
students in the '60s. Many absorbed the ideals
of true equality and modem freedom.
The range of thoughts, opinions and values
are incredibly diverse in society, and that same
variety can be found among executives. Many
still rule with an iron fist, but plenty of those in
upper management are finding many reasons
to treat employees and their communities
with respect.
Companies such as Ben and Jerry's, Subway
and Toyota do their part to raise awareness for
environmental and health issues.


Kyle Cox In 1995, Subway
Speaking Out hired its first full-time
dietitian, and in 2002 it
began its well-known
national sponsorship of the American Heart
Association. Since becoming health conscious,
Subway has skyrocketed to the top of the list of
franchises to own as ranked by Entrepreneur
Magazine,
With regards to environmental longevity,
Ben and Jerry's has long been known for be-
ing "green" even before it was hip. Toyota, a
relative newcomer to the environmental scene,
continues to woo American consumers with
the Prius hybrid, which made its American
debut, in 2000 (It's been available in Japan
since 1997).
Google, ranked by Fortune Magazine as
the best American business to work for, has
taken a step forward by actually listening to


employee concerns. Responsibility for the per-
sonal growth of associates and job flexibility
seem paramount. Executives at Google even
let engineers spend 20 percent of their (paid)
working time on independent projects. Google
keeps its workers mentally healthy and snares
higher profit margins year after year.
As our generation enters the work force,
it's crucial to be open-minded, rejecting de-
spondency and prejudice before stepping
through the door. The business world of our
grandparents no longer exists.
Our peers are known for wanting stimulat-
ing and rewarding jobs right out of college and
demanding respect from the onset. Businesses
must continuously adapt to changing societal
needs or simply fade away, along with those
short-sighted attitudes they embrace.
Kyle Cox is a junior majoring in marketing
and anthropology.


Guest Cl :

Over-the-counter Plan B anniversary matters to college students


As a college student, I welcome
any chance to celebrate. Just
a few days ago, I celebrated
the four-month anniversary of the
end of spring classes.
I've always been a big fan of an-
niversaries. We all know your 22nd
birthday is just the first anniversary
of turning 21.
But when I saw in Tuesday's
Alligator that Plan B was celebrat-
ing its first year of over-the-coun-
ter sales, I thought, why wasn't I
invited? How big of a deal is this
anyway? Maybe we should have a


holiday commemorating this glori-
ous day. Pharmaceutical companies
could declare holidays for the releas-
es of all their drugs. They certainly
have the-lobbying power.
Then I realized this was probably
more serious than I thought.
About a year and a half ago,
someone I knew, who went to school
in the rusty buckle of the Bible Belt,
feared her boyfriend's contraception
malfunctioned. The couple rushed
to the emergency room and asked
for Plan B. The doctors and nurses
said, "We really don't know if you


Vincent Massaro need it."
Speaking Out thaIsn t
point?"
she replied. A few hours later, after
many tears and much confusion,
they gave her the medication not
to mention the bill.
Today, she feels that Plan, B's
over-the-counter availability saves
people grief and anxiety. However,
she worries the drug's new avail-
ability might lead to abuse.
She says the principle of the mat-
ter the victory for privacy rights


- should be celebrated, but not the
use of the drug itself. I agree.
Samantha Evans, a sexual-health
educator with GatorWell, said being
able to obtain Plan B over the coun-
ter hasn't led to sexual irresponsibil-
ity. Rather, it empowers men and
women to make the best decisions
for themselves. Sexual responsibil-
ity doesn't end with pregnancy, she
said.
About 2.7 million unplanned
pregnancies occur each year, 54
percent of which result in abortion,
according to Plan B's Web site.


The need for this drug is here.
And because it's most effective when
taken as soon as possible, quick and
quiet availability just makes sense.
On Aug. 24, we did not celebrate
carefree, lustful sex, nor did we have
bacchanalian orgies commemorat-
ing the moming-after pill coming to
a Walgreens near you.
Instead, we remembered that it's
simply not the government's place
to keep Plan B from the people who
need it most.

joring in journalism.

Clubs to recruit


* UF'S 39 SPORTS CLUBS
WILL ATTEND EVENT.

By KORI FREDERICK
Alligator Writer
The UF Department of
Recreational Sports is hosting its
second annual Rec Sports Open
House today. '
The event will take place from 5
to 8 p.m. at the Broward Outdoor
Recreation Complex. All 39 UF
sports dubs will be present with
information for interested students,
said Eric Ascher, sports dub coor-
dinator.
Additionally, representatives
from intramural sports, recreational
fitness classes and Lake Wauburg
will be present, he said.
"We're going to be out there


recruiting and engaging interested
students," he said. "It's going to be
like a carnival for Rec Sports."
Many of the dubs will be host-
ing skills demonstrations. The
men's roller hockey dub will have
a shooting accuracy competition.
. Men's and women's volleyball will
also host a serving
drill. Students will be
OnCampus able to experience the
Campus popular "boot camp"
fitness class at the
open house, too. During the class,
students learn sit-ups, push-ups and
the army crawl.
Additionally, Gainesville Rock
Gym will be at the open house with
a giant portable rock wall for stu-
dents to spider up and down.
Rec Sports will be handing out
door prizes throughout the event,
and free pizza will be provided.

After a week of buying expen-
sive books, locating impossible-
to-find classrooms and scribbling
down copious notes on UF's honor
code, it's time to have some fun.
Gainesville's local music scene
will be offering five days of non-
stop, inexpensive entertainment
during MoeFest 2007. The Festt
began Wednesday and will con-
tinue through Sunday as a variety
of bands shake up the downtown
scene.
Here are just some of the bands
that are worth checking out:

MORNINGBELL
Morningbell's melodic, acoustic
instruments coupled with Travis
Atria's pure and sometimes spacey
voice makes for songs that will put
you in a happy daze. Their psyche-
delic rock sound shines through
onstage with skillfully played jams
that are reminiscent of the experi-
mental sound of The Flaming Lips.
Why You Should Listen:
Morningbell is for everyone
who wants to be taken on a musi-
cal time warp. The band is unique
in that it takes advantage of the cur-
rent trend of computer-generated
sound and synthesizers while also
featuring the simplicity of the early
Beatles and the untainted sounds of
their instruments. Morningbell will
captivate your inner '60s nostalgia.
Playing at MoeFest- Friday, 11
p.m. at The Side Bar

BANG BANG BOOM
With a classic sound featuring
crazy guitar flair and garage-rock
vocal influences, Bang Bang Boom
is exactly the explosion that its name
suggests. Bang Bang Boom is revital-


Gimme mo' MoeFest


izing the edgy, authentic side of rock
'n' roll.
Why You Should Listen:
Their musical influences come
from the '50s and '60s as well as
from the newer sounds of indie and
garage rock, allowing their music to
span generations and genres.
Playing at MoeFest: Friday, 9
p.m. at The Side Bar

MARCH TO MAY
March to May use a piano-driven
sound to stand out against the other
bands, but their talent doesn't stop
at the keyboard. The catchy sounds
of March to May make them easy
to listen to and almost impossible
to turn off.
Why You Should Listen:
March to May is able to pull off
indie improve, a talent that even the
most experienced bands struggle
with. This quick-on-their-feet genius
coupled with an original take on the
indie sound makes music that is
easy to move to.
Playing at MoeFest: Saturday, 10
p.m. at 1982 Bar

INUIT JARGON
Get ready to laugh and be musi-
cally impressed at the same time.
Everything seems to be a big gag
for these three talented jokesters
- everything except their sound.-
This band can make anything into
a song that is sure to get stuck in
your head.
Why You Should Listen:
Who wouldn't want to listen to
toe-tapping pop and rock tunes with
lyrics spanning the important issues
of pulled pork sandwiches and
Lance Bass? Their smooth sound
and comical lyrics give Inuit Jargon

a reputation around Gainesville for
being one of the most original acts
in town.
Playing at MoeFest: Friday, 10:30
p.m. at The Side Bar

INDIGOVOX
Electronic music that will put
you in a trance and get you dancing
at the same time barely begins to
describe IndigoVox's robotic sound.
With a weirdness that resembles the
Brazilian Girls, IndigoVox is a solo
artist and creates the dreamlike mu-
sic all on her own.
Why You Should Listen:
While electronic music is not
what usually wails from the bars
and pubs in downtown Gainesville,
experiencing the mind-expanding
beats of IndigoVox will be a concert
that is hard to get out of your head
- no strobe lights needed.
Playing at MoeFest: Saturday, 9
p.m. at 1982 Bar

EMPTY FIFTH
Empty Fifth may be an old-
fashioned rock 'n' roll band, but
they have a fierce twist. They come
to shake things up and share their
special sound of Johnny Cash blues
with a hint of Ritchie Valens rock,
topped off with a vintage feel.
Why You Should Listen:
"Rockabilly," a term coined in
the 1950's to describe one of the
earliest styles of rock 'n' roll music,
is brought back to life by Empty
Fifth (with a little something extra
to dance to).

Movie proves all sharks aren't Jaws


Underwater filmmaker Rob Stewart is
revolutionizing the way people view the
"media-fied" shark.
His award-winning documentary,
"Sharkwater," which will be presented
Tuesday at 8 p.m. at the Reitz Union
Auditorium, uncovers the world of shark
poaching.
His goal with the I'm tryi
shark-sympathetic I-
movie is that the eerie *6 anti-'Ja

longer raise the hairs on people than st
the back of your neck.
"I'm trying to be the Rob Stewar

said. "Soda pop ma-
chines kill more people than sharks a
year, while 100 million sharks are killed
-by people a year.".
Although he was born in Toronto,
Stewart's passion for wildlife and under-
water photography took him to various
trips to Florida and the Caribbean.
"Since he was a kid, he's always loved
the water and has always been enchanted
-by sharks," said David Garland, market-
ing director for "Sharkwater."


Garland, who helped market "Grease"
and "The Empire Strikes Back," decided
to represent "Sharkwater" because of its
"solid and heartfelt" message, he said.
Stewart, who is now 27, was driven
at the age of only 21 to start making
the movie that was later awarded Best
Documentary at the Ft. Lauderdale
ng to be the International Film
ng to be the Festival and Canada's
vs.'Soda pop Top 10 at Toronto's
)es kill more International Film
arks a year. Festival, among other
recognition.
t During the five
an years it took to film
"Sharkwater," humans
rapidly proved to play the villain's role.
The first year of filming, Stewart and
conservationist Paul Watson were under
"boat arrest" as Watson, the captain, was
charged with seven counts of attempted
murder after their ship collided with an
illegal Costa Rican shark-fishing boat in
Guatemala. This and other unexpected
confrontations became an integral part of
a documentary initially planned to be a
Discovery Channel-like production.


VERONICA JORDAN ) AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER


"We ended up filming ourselves in
prison," Stewart said.
The prominence of out-of-the-water
conflict helped Stewart realize the gravity
of illegal shark finningg" operations.
"Finning" is when poachers cut a
shark's fins off and throw the leftover
body back to die a long, motionless death
at the bottom of the ocean. This practice
has grown due to increased consumption
of the highly regarded shark-fin soup in
China.
Stewart aims to change people's ideas
of sharks, expose the finningg" world, and
share facts on the animal's vital existence
through the documentary and speeches
in multiple museums and universities.
"Sharks set up the framework for life
in the ocean," he said.
Stewart will speak about the making of
"Sharkwater" and show footage Tuesday
at 8 p.m. at the Reitz Union Auditorium.
The presentation, which is open to the
public, is sponsored by Student Upstart
Films and the Reitz Union Board.
He'll also speak at 2 p.m. at the College
of Journalism and Communications
Documentary Institute.
"Sharkwater" opens in Florida the-
aters Sept. 28.


* Sacrificing being whole for a better half?


Lately I've been studying my coupled-
up friends, trying to dissect what exactly
makes a relationship work. The cynic in me
keeps coming back to the same question:
What are these people giving up?
S That sounds horrible, I. know. And I'm
sure that anyone in a good relationship will
argue that the benefits of having someone
there far outweigh any desire to eat cookie
0 dough on the couch while crying to "The
Notebook." But that's not what I mean.
Yes, I will admit that I am a bit of a re-'
* lationship-phobe who has at times sought
out men %who could never be with me.
IPs'chology major.. take heed I'm well
aware ot the mounds of therapy I will e% en-
tuallv need to combat this.j But I'm refer-
ring to losing a part of you in our quest to


become a twosome.
What are we willing to sacrifice?
My friend's boyfriend hates going down
on her. He has actually suggested that it
should be saved for special occasions or
when they're in the shower. He ironically
(and in this expert's mind, wrongly) has
no problem having her tend to his south-
of-the-border. In the past my friend has
proclaimed that getting oral is her favorite
sexual act. Should she be willing to go with-
out just because of his irrational belief?
I posed the same question to a former
roommate of mine over lunch. For as long
as I have known her she has been in one
senous relationship or another, so it seemed
logical that she'd be able to due me in.
"You really only surrender your time,"


she sagely suggested, "assuming it's the.
right person."
I was still confused.
"But nothing about who you are as a
person changed by being in such serious
relationships? And you never really had to
forgo much to have them work?" She put
her sandwich down. "Not really."
My hunger for a satisfying answer kept
growing.
Obviously, there are certain things we
each want out of a relationship. I, for one,
would love someone who looks like George
Clooney and can cook. Perhaps, however, I
need to realize that having someone who
may not be skilled in the culinary arts is a
reality I need to accept.
Maybe the answer really.is as simple as


my former roomie
suggested. For
those who matter,
you sacrifice.
Maybe relation-
ships work like a
scale when the
payoff potential seems great, you give of
yourself, and when the rewards seem in-
substantial, you don't.
Maybe it's about forfeiting little things
and putting the energy once spent on those
little things into the relationship itself.
Not talking to your ex, abstaining from
a girls night out and watching an action
movie are all relatively easy tasks. Not
receiving head? Well, it takes a bigger ro-
mantic than me.

On Offense
Blake Mitchell is an experienced quarterback who might be able to
take South Carolina to the next level. Unfortunately for the Gamecocks,
Mitchell and tailback Bobby Wallace are suspended for the, home
opener against Louisiana-Lafayette for missing summer school classes.
Still, South Carolina won't exactly need him to win the game. Mitchell
is the Southeastern Conference's top returning quarterback in career
completion percentage (61.2 percent). Now that standout receiver
Sidney Rice is gone, junior Kenny McKinley is the team's most solid
wideout after making 51 catches for 880 yards last season. The
Gamecocks also return running back Cory Boyd, who led the team in
rushing with 68.6 yards per game. Boyd is expected to split time at
tailback with last season's second-leading rusher, junior Mike Davis.
Ori Defense
South Carolina's defense won't be lacking this season with several
experienced players returning. The linebacker corps is led by brothers Casper
and Jasper Brinkley, who combined for 151 tackles last season. Jasper, who
put off the NFL, was named to the Butkus Award watch list earlier this week.
Safety Emanuel Cook has been reinstated to the university and the team after
beingarrested last week on a gun charge, according to various reports. It
might be a while before Cook sees some game time, however. The sophomore,_
who made 47 tackles last season, is still expected to miss a couple of weeks
after undergoing an appendectomy. Coach Steve Spurrier.isn't opposed to
playing some new faces this year. Freshmen Travian Robertson and Cliff
Matthews are expected to see some significant time on the defensive line.

Impact Player Spotlight
LB Jasper Brinkley
In 2006, the South Carolina coaches approached
Jasper Brinkley with an unusual request.
T. They a..Ied Br.n'.iey to ease up a bit in spring-
.idrils, for lear trre linebacker might hurt somebody.
S. e ':.a.nes dian'r have to make the same
request tnis year.
r, I was recovering trom off-season shoulder
surgery this spring, so they really didn't have to tell
me anyining." Brinkley said.
Brinkley is healthy again, and unfortunately for South Carolina's
opponents, there is nothing to stop the preseason first team All-
Southeastern Conference selection from pounding opposing players.
Brinkley recorded 107 tackles last season, more than twice as many
as any teammate. He also recorded five sacks.
He has also been named to the Butkus Award watch list for the
upcoming season.
But the senior wasn't satisfied with last year's production.
After NFL scouts predicted Brinkley would have gone anywhere from
the sixth found to undrafted in the 2007 NFL draft, Brinkley returns
this season with greater goals.
"Instead of having 107 tackles, I need to have 112," Brinkley said. "I
need to have some forced fumbles. I need to have some interceptions."
As the leader of an improving defense, Brinkley said the best way for
the Ganmecc.:s to get better individually and as a unit, is to trust each
other.
"I feel like everyone is going to be able to carry a little bit of their
success on each other's shoulders," Brinkley said. "If I get down, I'm
going to need the next man to lift me up, just as well as if he gets
down. I'm going to lift him up."


South Carolina will ROCK because the team has a solid defense and an experienced
quarterback to go along with Spurrier's coaching genius.


South Carolina will GET ROLLED because they just don't have the talent needed to succeed in
the SEC East. UF, Georgia and Tennessee are much deeper and more talented teams.


Jenna Marina and Molly Telfer/ Alligator Staff


On Offense
LSU should have no trouble scoring points. The Tigers have to
replace JaMarcus Russell the No. 1 overall pick in the -2007
NFL draft but senior Matt Flynn was one of the best backup
quarterbacks in the nation last season. Flynn is a senior and has
some experience. He was the MVP of the 2005 Chick-fil-A Peach
Bowl. Talented sophomore Keiland Williams takes over at running
back after averaging 5.7 yards per carry last season. At wide
receiver, LSU will have to replace Dwayne Bowe and Craig Davis,
but they have a ton at talent at the position, including senior Early
Doucet, who reeled in eight touchdowns last season. The offensive
line returns three full-time starters and should be solid.
On Defense
Scoring on the Tigers' defense should, be considered a major
accomplishment. LSU has had a top-five defense in each of the
past two seasons and should again achieve that status. The unit is
anchored by a defensive line that is arguably the best in the nation.
All-American defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey returns for his senior
season, despite the fact that he was a potential first-round draft pick.
Defensive end Tyson Jackson had 8.5 sacks last season and could
be in store for a huge year. Ali Highsmith is a Butkus Award candidate
at linebacker and lockdown corners Jonathan Zenon and Chevis
Jackson highlight a talented defensive backfield.

Impact Player Spotlight
WR Early Doucet
Early Doucet spent last season looking up to
fellow receivers Dwayne Bowe and Buster Davis.
But now that Bowe and Davis have left for the
NFL, Doucet finds himself at the other end of
the spectrum.
"I was like the little brother looking up to those
guys," Doucet said. "Now that they're gone,
I'm kind of like the big brother looking after the
other guys. I just try to help them any way I can, the things I learned
from Dwayne and Buster and the things that they learned from
Michael Clayton and Devery Henderson."
The senior reeled in 59 receptions for 772 yards and eight
touchdowns last season, while participating as LSU's primary return
man on kickoffs.
Despite last season's success, Doucetsaid he never considered
following Bowe and Davis to the NFL.
"I love college football," tie said. "Playing in Tiger Stadium, you don't
want to let those memories go."
But despite losing two extremely talented receivers, Doucet is
plenty confident in his wide receiver teammates.
When asked which receiver would step up this season and surprise
people, Doucet said he could name a few.
He proceeded to individually list every receiver on the depth chart.
"I have that much confidence in my guys," he said.
Still, there's no denying that opponents will target the experienced
Doucet with double teams.
"I'm expecting that, but we have a great group of young receivers,"
he said. "So it really doesn't matter if I get double-teamed or not.
That just means two people on me, and somebody else is going to be
open. They can send three or four people on me."


LSU will ROCK because it has arguably the best defense in the country to go along with an -
explosive offense. The Tigers' toughest road game is at Alabama, and LSU should be a clear-cut
favorite in every game this season.

LSU will GET ROLLED because they are fairly inexperienced on offense. While the talented
Tigers will certainly show some flashes of offensive brilliance, they have to prove they can score
with consistency.

"[Trautwein] is a captain big
loss," Meyer said. "Huge loss. The
good thing is, it's an area where
there's a little bit of depth and a
little bit of competition." .

MORE INJURIES: The practice field
looked like a
hospital ward
Wednesday:
Running back
SBo Williams,
quarterbackBryan
Waggener and
offensive lineman
Anderson Jim Barrie all left
on crutches.
Cornerback Markihe Anderson
walked with a limp and a brace on
his right knee.
Anderson will not play
Saturday, Meyer said, and neither
will Williams.
"[Williams] is out for like six
weeks," Meyer said. "He has a dis-
located ankle."

RAINEY AT CORNER: Freshman run-
ning back Chris Rainey practiced
at cornerback Wednesday, senior
safety Tony Joiner and cornerbacks
coach Chuck Heater confirmed.
-"Yeah, he worked out (at cor-
nerback)," Joiner said. "They just
stuck him in during our two-min-
ute offense, but I'm pretty sure the
coaches have a plan for him."

He said his offense is a mix of UF and West
Virginia's schemes.
"In this day and age, the spread has be-

is doing a version of it if they're not basing
out of it," Elson said. "We wanted to be able
to stretch defenses with a mobile quarterback

UF is also loaded at receiver, where Rainey would have
to outwork bigger, stronger players to see the field with any
regularity.
Meanwhile, the Gators noticeably lack depth at defensive
back, where a stable of young, inexperienced players are com-
peting for field time. In that slot, Rainey's size wouldn't be as
much of a factor because he would be dashing with wideouts
and the occasional running back rather than taking on line-
backers and defensive linemen.
The fact that Rainey is faster and more athletic than all of the
current defensive backs makes the idea more enticing.
Also, a switch would put Rainey in a better position for an
NFL career, where the "slash" players that Meyer values are
not as wanted.
None of this is to say that Rainey can't get bigger he

the hit he took from Wright but giving him a few touches per
game on offense with a limited special teams role while hoping
he stays healthy isn't the best way to use him. Letting him have
those same few touches while making him a regular on defense
and special teams is, and it will benefit the Gators much more if
Rainey can learn the defensive schemes.
It's dear Rainey has the talent, but he must gain the mind of
a defensive player.

"At comer you have to have a brain as well," said UF safety
Tony Joiner after Wednesday's practice. "I really don't know his
mental capacity or how well he will learn the game. Athletic-
wise, for Chris Rainey, he definitely can play that position."
In fact, there aren't many reasons not to use Rainey on de-
fense if he can handle the mental side of it.
This can be accomplished best by easing Rainey into the
role, maybe starting in dime and nickel packages. Hell have
a great study partner. His roommate, Joe Haden, recently
switched from receiver to corner and will start on Saturday.
UF wouldn't be losing a playmaker if Rainey switches.
They'd be gaining a bigger one. A sad fact is that athletic ability
isn't valued as heavily on defense by fans.

could present matchup problems for the
Gators, who will likely be without top cor-
nerback Markihe Anderson.
Does that give the
Hilltoppers a glimmer of hope?
Probably not.
"They're ranked No. 3 in the country and
we're a transitional I-A program," Elson said.
"It would be a major upset by the standards
of the media and by general common sports
knowledge."


Imagine if the Gators had decided to put Reggie Nelson
on offense last year. The idea would have been met with wild
excitement, but the thought of Rainey on defense gives UF fans
fits.
Plenty of teams have used their most talented athletes
on defense. Consider Michigan's Charles Woodson, Florida
State's Deion Sanders and Georgia's Champ Bailey. All of them
contributed on offense and special teams but were primarily
defensive players. The three of them were a major force in ev-
ery game and went on to successful NFL careers.
Are you sick of hearing your FSU buddies yap about how
great Deion was? Well, Chris Rainey has a chance to bete
Gators' "Prime Time," except perhaps Rainey would occasion-
ally make a tackle or two.
Besides, Rainey has already shown that he has the charisma
and personality to match Sanders, and with his athleticism and
work ethic, he could score just as many touchdowns from the
defensive side as he would on offense.
He has the potential to be a star, and he needs to be on the
field as much as possible. Playing on defense will provide him
with more playing time, a longer career and maybe even more
wins for the Gators.

Trautwein out


indefinitely

UF offensive lineman Phil Trautwein
has a stress fracture in his right foot and is
out indefinitely, Coach Urban Meyer said -
Wednesday.
Meyer said he doesn't have a timetable
for Trautwein's return, but the senior cer-
tainly won't play Saturday against Western
Kentucky.
He could possibly miss the entire season.
"We'll know more in the next couple
days," Meyer said. "It stinks. It's the hardest
thing as a coach. You hate to -see it like this,
especially for the really invested guys." .
The preseason first team All-Southeastern
Conference tackle left practice on a golf cart,
sporting a blue cast on his right foot.
The senior has a history of stress fractures
dating back to high school, Meyer said, but .
the coaching staff originally thought the in-
jury was an ankle sprain.
"I almost fell out of my chair," Meyer
said. -

Rainey's future


is on defense
here are certain things I know you just
can't say to a UF fan.
Some statements are considered
blasphemy, like "Tebow is overrated," or "the
Swamp is ugly."
Relax, I'm not saying either of those things,
but what I am saying has been met with almost
equal opposition: Chris Rainey should play
defensive back.
Before you crumple up the page or start
drawing on my charmingly handsome picture,
at least hear me out. There are several reasons
why the move would make sense, and the
coaches think so, too. Rainey worked out with
the defensive backs
during the two-minute
drill on Wednesday.
First of all, I think
anyone would agree

mmcall@alligator.org career.
In addition to his
role as a wide receiver/running back, he is also
being used on virtually every special teams
combination.
This year, you will see him touch the ball
on offense, return kicks and maybe attempt to
block a few punts or field goals.
It's hard to pin down the best way to utilize
his talents. At Lakeland High, that meant get-
ting him the ball as often as possible by putting
him at running back.
His small frame 5-foot-9, 156 pounds
wasn't a factor in high school because he
faced few opponents capable of even catching
him, much less laying a solid hit on him.
In the Southeastern Conference, things will
be a lot different.
Every UF opponent has players on defense
that can do some serious damage to a running
back's body even Western Kentucky and
Troy.
In spring practice, Rainey got a wakeup call
when safety Major Wright hit him hard enough
that the dip could be featured in Urban Meyer's
"Hit City" video, and that lick was from a true
freshman.
Even if he did remain a primarily offensive
player, Rainey faces a logjam in the backfield
. that will only get worse next year when USC
transfer Emmanuel Moody is able to play.
Moody will probably be around for two
years, with Kestahn Moore, Mon Williams,
Chevon Walker and Bo Williams also in the
mix, not to mention potential recruits.
Those five are much more likely to be every-
down backs than Rainey, because their size al-
