Taser report backs officers


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

The UF police officers who Tasered
Andrew Meyer at a September speech
were well within the guidelines for use of
force, according to a report from the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement's investi-
gation.
Eddie King and Nicole Lynn Mallo
- the two officers who were suspended
with pay after the event are back on duty,
UF President Bernie Machen wrote in an e-
mailed statement.
The report stated that the officers used
a Taser because it would provide minimal


injury, have no lasting side effects, and the
officers would gain control in the least time
with the least effort.
The officers opted not to use OC spray,
known as pepper spray,
because it could have also
affected other members of
the audience, the report
S stated.
SE'- Other options would
- ? .... have been to use hand
strikes, kicks, knee strikes
or batons. These methods
were not used because
they would have caused greater injury to
Meyer, the report said.
Meyer, a UF telecommunication senior,


was Tasered and arrested after officers said
he resisted arrest with violence and dis-
turbed the peace at a Sen. John Kerry speech
Sept. 17.
Meyer and his lawyer, Robert Griscti,
could not comment on the investigation be-
cause Meyer's charges are pending, Griscti
wrote in a statement.
Meyer faces a third-degree felony for re-
sisting arrest with violence and a second-de-
gree misdemeanor for disturbing the peace.
The report stated that Meyer acted with
"active physical resistance," meaning he
either tensed his body or tried to push or
pull away.
Under guidelines for police use of force,

Circus attracts families, protesters


* THE COLE BROS. CIRCUS
IS AT THE OAKS MALL.

By JENNIFER BINGAMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Black, pink and baby-blue
poodles rode in a tiny pink car
and jumped from a ladder sus-
pended in the air Wednesday
evening.
It was just a small moment in
the show of Cole Bros. Circus at
The Oaks Mall, led by ringmas-
ter Chris Connors.
The poodles arrived in an
old-fashioned, hot-pink minia-
ture car.
They leapt through rings,
barrel-rolled and rode around
on feather-covered scooters.
A white poodle leapt from a
ladder into the safety of a purple
blanket shortly before the poo-
dles exited the tent walking on
their hind legs in a conga line.
Performing to the tune of
"Wipe Out," three giant el-
ephants danced and skipped
in a thundering fashion around
the ring.
The crowd let out shouts of
amazement as the elephants
stood on only two feet and per-
formed handstands.
While the display was pleas-
ing to onlookers, protesters were
outside the circus.

Bros. Circus in The Oaks Mall parking lot Wednesday night.


a student-run animal rights
group, held signs that read "The
Cruelest Show on Earth."
Kavita Rajasekhar, a 25-year-
old UF medical student and
member of the group, said the
treatment of elephants in the
circus is inhumane.


She said the elephants are
trained by whipping them in
their trunks and legs.
"It's not like they have this
thick skin that doesn't hurt,"
Rajasekhar said.
Renee Storey, a spokesperson
for the Cole Bros. Circus, said the


tool that trainers use, called an
ankus, serves the same purpose
as a leash and collar for a dog.
"It is used as a guiding
device," Storey said. "Not as a
device for punishment."

Energy


options


discussed


at forum

By KORI FREDERICK
Alligator Writer

Despite a steady drizzle, about 50
UF students showed up Wednesday
to discuss the uses of a renewable
energy fee. The forum was part
of festivities for National Campus
Sustainability Day.
Last spring, 78 percent of students
voted in favor of a 50-cent-per-credit
tuition increase to be used for re-
search and development into renew-
able energy on campus. Student
Government passed legislation sup-
porting the fee Tuesday night.
But university administrators
wanted to move forward with the
new technology fee, which will be
applied in 2009, before considering
whether to approve the renewable
energy fee.
"This will add up to
$650,000 for renewable
energy at UF."
Kelly Moosbrugger
Gators for a Sustainable Campus
treasurer

The fee breaks down to $7 a se-
mester per student, or $14 a year,
said Kelly Moosbrugger, treasurer of
Gators for a Sustainable Campus.
"This will add up to $650,000 for
renewable energy at UF," she said.
Moosbrugger said a committee of
students, staff and faculty would be
responsible for how the fee is used if
it is passed. If all 11 state universities
chose to adopt the fee, it could gener-
ate $3 million a year, she said.
Jesika Allen, a UF English senior,
said she's finally glad to see someone

Stuzin popular spot for 'cruising'


By JACLYN STARK
Alligator Contributing Writer
The men's restroom of Stuzin Hall
on UF's campus is a top spot for gay
"cruising" in Gainesville, according
to a Web site that lists popular cruis-
ing locations.
Members of Squirt.org, who are
identified by screen names to protect
their identities, have posted more
than 100 comments about Stuzin Hall
to discuss experiences and to arrange
meetings in the men's restrooms for
sex.
All kinds of people participate
in cruising in order to find same-sex
partners for a "one-night stand," said
Evan Lauteria, an intern for Lesbian,
Gay, Bisexual and Transgender
Affairs at UF.
Cruising is a forum in which
people can practice same-sex rela-
tions without having to identify
themselves as a member of the LGBT
community, said Lauteria, who is
also the director of the Intercollegiate
Pride Conference.
"There are members of the LGBT


community who do cruise, but not
everyone who cruises is a member of
the LGBT community," he said.
Cruising could reinforce negative
ideas that the LGBT community is
promiscuous and not able to main-
tain relationships, Lauteria said.
Brett Scharf, a UF health science
junior, said another UF student heard
Stuzin Hall was an active cruising
spot and decided to investigate it.
"There are members of the
LGBT community who do
cruise, but not everyone
who cruises is a member of
the LGBT community."
Evan Lauteria
intern for LGBT Affairs at UF

"My friend told a few of us about
Stuzin as a ground for gay cruising,"
he said. "This guy wanted to find
out if a Web site [Squirt.org] he came
across contained factual information,
so he went to the source to test it."
The student did not engage in


sexual relations, but he signaled
to someone in the men's restroom,
received a response and then left,
Scharf said.
Employees who work in the
Stuzin Hall area say they doubt
the rumors are true. UF graduate
students Eean Crawford and Jessica
Saul, who share an office a few doors
down from a men's restroom in
Stuzin Hall, said they haven't noticed
suspicious behavior.
Capt. Jeff Holcomb, spokesman
for the University Police Department,
said gay cruising isn't a major prob-
lem on campus.
"In the past, we've had problems
with situations like this, but it's been
at least ten years or so since we've
had complaints about it," Holcomb
said.
Holcomb said there used to be
concerns with several buildings, and
officers were working undercover to
find solicitors.
"We've actually made arrests this
way," he said. The past problems
with cruising occurred mostly in
Matherly Hall, Holcomb said.


UN raises money


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org
UF Model United
Nations raised more than
$250 for malaria preven-
tion Wednesday as part of
National United Nations
Day.
The group set up tables
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. near
Library West.
Representatives solicited
donations from passersby
and people eating Krishna
lunch.
Amanda MacDougall,
coordinator and confer-
ence service director, said
the group hoped to raise
at least $600 for Nothing
But Nets, a campaign that
provides insecticide-treated
mosquito nets to people in
areas at risk for malaria in


Africa.
The money will all go
to Nothing But Nets to buy
the $10 nets, which are large
enough for an entire family
to sleep under, she said.
The group set up a small
basketball hoop to attract
students.
"I think the most im-
portant thing
LoCal we're here
News for is to raise
awareness,"
MacDougall said.
The Model UN chose
to raise money for malaria
prevention because it feels it
is an issue that is not given
enough attention, she said.
Model UN President
Justin Berlin said the group
will go to organizations on
campus this week to raise
the rest of the money to
reach its goal.

UF offers vaccine for flu season


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

Wednesday's damp, chilly weather
was a hint of the approaching winter
and its corresponding flu season.
UF's Student Health Care Center
and the Healthy Gator 2010 Coalition
announced in a news release
Wednesday that they are launching a
fall campaign to prevent the spread of
infectious diseases on campus.
Both organizations are urging
students to receive vaccinations for
influenza and meningococcal menin-
gitis, which can spread easily among
college students facing crowded


classes, shared living spaces and a
hectic lifestyle.
Students can get flu shots, which
help build immune system protection
prior to flu season, for $5 at SHCC,
while faculty and staff will have to
shell out $25.
Those who have not been vacci-
nated for meningitis are also encour-
aged to spend $126 for a vaccine called
Menactra that decreases but does not
eliminate the risk of infection.
Though the vaccine is mandatory
for new students prior to registration,
they can waive the prerequisite after
reading about the disease and vac-
cination.
Meningococcal meningitis can


quickly lead to swelling in the brain,
coma and death.
University of South Florida student
Rachel Futterman, 19, died from men-
ingitis Sept. 24, and a nursing student
from the University of Central Florida
is now hospitalized with the disease.
"The importance of vaccination in
the prevention of meningococcal dis-
ease and influenza cannot be overem-
phasized," said Dr. Phil Barkley, center
director, in the release.
"In combination with a common-
sense approach to the prevention of
common upper respiratory illnesses,
the morbidity and mortality due
to these diseases can be reduced,"
Barkley said.


r- Stop Sickness Before it Starts

S Ways to reduce the chances of catching the
flu or meningococcal meningitis:

0 Wash your hands for 15 seconds with plenty of
S soap and water.

Use a hand sanitizer if a sink is not available.

0 Cover a cough or sneeze with a tissue, or cough or
s0r sneeze in the crook of your arm.

*Wipe surfaces regularly with disinfectant wipes.

Don't share drinks or eating utensils with others.

* BENJI BROWN WILL
APPEAR TODAY.

By MARIA THOMAS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Benji Brown, a comedian
and actor, will perform for
UF students today at 8 p.m.
in the Reitz Union Grand
Ballroom.
Brown will perform in
an event for Black Student
Union Homecoming Week.
"Anyone can appreciate
his comedy," said Shakelia
LeBlanc, BSU homecoming
director.
The free event will follow
the group's pep rally at 6
p.m., which will incorporate
a special ribbon fundraiser
for the National Association
for the Advancement of
Colored People Legal
Defense Fund.
Brown is a personality on
Miami's WEDR-FM 99 Jamz
"Big Lip Bandit Morning


Show."
But the airwaves aren't
the only place where the co-
median's fans can find him.
On an Internet video,
Brown parodies the "Maury
Povich Show" in a show
in which he plays KiKi, a
mother dressed in a skintight
gold outfit searching for her
baby's father.
Brown is veteran of BET's
"Comic
Multicultural View" and
Affairs appeared
on MTV's
"Nick Cannon Presents: Wild
'N Out" in June. He has also
worked with Chris Rock,
the Queens of Comedy and
rap artists Trina and Trick
Daddy.
Unlike other comedians,
Brown tells jokes as both
himself and through his
characters, LeBlanc said
through giggles.
After the show, Brown
will sign autographs and
take pictures with fans.

Performers

share stories
By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

For Andrey Medeiros, the circus means
more than doing daredevil motorcycle moves
for a wide-eyed crowd.
Past the visually pleasing acrobatics and
life-threatening tricks are family bonds be-
tween performers and staff.
Medeiros revs up a motorcycle almost
every night and takes it, for a ride in the
ThunderDrome: The Moto-Globe of Death.
He joins three motorcyclists in a spherical
cage that is about 18 feet wide.
The cage shakes and shimmies as they
weave paths. They can almost touch hands.
Medeiros said that during the dangerous
feat he has to "take care of the guys."
Besides strengthening trust, the band of
traveling nomads sometimes forms everlast-
ing relationships.
A man and a woman meet under the big
top and get married.
A baby is born and travels with them
around the country.
The spouses perform together in the circus
and live happily ever after.
Under the flame-retardant vinyl tent,
Medeiros has started his family.
Medeiros, originally from Brazil, met his
wife four years ago while performing gym-
nastics with relatives at Cole Bros. Circus.
"I fell in love with a beautiful girl from
Bulgaria who is a showgirl in the show,"


Medeiros said.
When his family decided to perform with
another circus, he had the hard choice of stay-
ing with Cole Bros. and his love interest or
leaving it all behind.
"I chose love," he said.
Since then, Medeiros and his wife Viky
have performed and traveled together with
the circus.
"My wedding was right here in the tent, in
the ring," he said.
His son, Christopher, is the fifth generation
of his family to be in the circus.
He lives in a world where applause is the
stamp of approval, the rowdy noise of suc-
cess.
Where elephants are fed marshmallows
by trainers as they're led in circles around the
ring.
The Cole Bros. Circus crew travels across
the country, toting its animals and props to
different cities from March to November.
With about 25 semi-trucks in tow, RV
campers full of families follow on their tour
throughout the U.S.
Performance director Chris Connors said
the circus is an international family business.
"As ringmaster, I say, 'Our family wel-
comes your family,'" Connors said.
As a little boy, his family was a member of
the Circus Fans Association of America.
Jimmy James, who was Cole Bros. Circus
ringmaster for 35 years, used to feed him his
bottled milk as a youngster, Connors said.
The career grew on him, and he said he
hopes to live up to the circus reputation of
Jimmy James.
He has been the Cole Bros. ringmaster for
six years.
"Six years ... in circus years, that's 35,"


A motorcyclist rides up the ramp to the entrance of the ThunderDrome during the Cole
Bros. Circus' first act, ThunderDrome: The Moto-Globe of Death, on Wednesday night.


Connors said with a smile.
C.M. Christ, a marketing director for the
circus, compares its big top to a self-sustain-
ing city.
"It's a city of lights and sights," Christ
said.
The campers rest behind the towering
yellow-and-red big top, creating an intimate
town of larger-than-life props and shuffling
animals.
The Abuhadba family keeps about 16
poodles contained by a small fence next to
its camper. Originally from Chile, Rafael
Abuhadba travels with his family and its per-
forming pastel poodles.
As ringmaster, Connors is used to welcom-
ing new international acts into its program


every year.
"We're a melting pot on wheels," he said.
It has performers who come from locations
including Bulgaria, Mexico and Guatemala.
It's not unusual for performers and staff to
know multiple languages.
"They all have one language, and that's
circus," Connors said.
Medeiros said his son knows three lan-
guages at his young age.
Christopher, Medeiros' son, was born an
American, although his father is from Brazil
and his mother is from Bulgaria. Medeiros

said this mix of nationalities is a common
quality of a traveling circus.
"For us, it's a normal life," Medeiros said.
"It's a circus life."


Circus performers showcased trapeze stunts, tricks atop moving horses

garnered a significant amount of ap-
plause from the crowd, people came
to showcase their talents as well.
The first event for the evening
was the Steel Sphere of Danger fea-
turing the ThunderDrome Riders.
The riders slowly trickled into the


steel cage to showcase their abilities.
The three daredevils revved their
engines as they looped above and
beside one another in the dome.
"You haven't seen anything yet,"
Connors said. "Whatever you do,
don't shut your eyes and hold onto
your seats."
The sphere unhinged into two
halves as the riders rode above


and below the void within the steel
dome.
The Kim Brothers performed
circus tricks atop

"equestrian artistry."
Connors introduced the "celes-
tial stars of the flying trapeze," as a
father and his four children entered


the tent.
The Ponce Family Flyers soared
through the air, performing flips and
twists as they dung to the trapeze.
The youngest, 10-year-old Victoria,
flipped from the trapeze and into
the clutches of her father's hands at
the end of the family's performance.
An 11,000-pound cannon rolled
into the tent as a finale for the eve-

Report Retort

Police's Taser use was

apparently justified
WTF, FDLE?
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement's
investigation of the Andrew Meyer Tasering in-
cident Tasergate, as we like to call it is complete.
And the University Police Department has been ab-
solved. Never mind that the Tasering was heard 'round
the world. Never mind that it was covered by nearly every
major news outlet in the country. Never mind that the
videos on YouTube made UF a laughingstock to the world
- and Sen. John Kerry, live and in person.
No, once again all is well and good in the world, and
UPD officers Eddie King and Nicole Lynn Mallo are back
on the beat.
Using a Taser gun on Meyer was well within the guide-
lines for use of force, the FDLE's report stated.
That may be true, but one part of the job is. knowing
how to adapt to different situations and react accordingly.
Was it well within the guidelines for use of force for
six UPD officers to hold down one average-sized student?
If they could drag him all the way to the back of the
University Auditorium, couldn't they have just moved
him another few yards into the lobby?
Who knows once the cameras were off of him, Meyer
may have actually acted reasonably. He did, after all, tell
the officers they didn't do anything wrong while he was in
the police car afterward.
This seems to be a case of an overactive student and
some power-hungry cops a volatile combination, to be
sure.
So now it's up to UF to determine what to do next. A UF
panel is still looking into UF policies in light of the Taser
event, and will be doing so for at least the rest of the se-
mester. We hope it takes less of a technical approach than
FDLE took and more of a common-sense approach.


Cruel and Unusual


Ah, the circus is in
town.
A timeless tradi-
tion. What's not to love?
Clowns, tightrope walkers,
trapeze artists, human can-
nonballs.
And, oh yeah the ani-
mals.
Training for rigorous
performances, dealing with
crowds of screaming people
and being constantly trans-
ported cannot be good for
the animals. The Cole Bros.
Circus has received quite
a bit of criticism for how it
treats its animals, mainly the
elephants.
The circus has been
charged with animal cru-
elty before, according to
Circuses.com, a Web site that


compiles information about
animal treatment at circuses.
And it's no surprise that
members of Animal Activists
of Alachua protested the
circus.
When not performing, the
circus' three elephants were
kept chained up in a park-
ing lot.
Circuses receive a lot of
flak for how they treat their
animals, and with good
reason. Animals were not
meant to be kept in cages and
trained to do stupid tricks
just for the amusement of
even stupider humans.
Troupes such as Cirque du
Soleil have had huge success-
es with animal-free circuses.
It's time for more circuses to
move in that direction.

On Wednesday, the university released a 17-page executive summary of the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement's Andrew Meyer report. We'd like to offer our own


FIVE-WORD ULTRA SUMMARY:




"Better luck next


time, chump.


Column

Bad body image fu
Finally, there's peace. The dust has cleared. W< 're putting
the horror and the carnage of war behind us Seventeen
Magazine has called a cease-fire in the we r with our
body images.
In a video featured on CNN.com, the editor in chief of
Seventeen, Ann Shoket, presented the Body Peace Treaty
campaign.
The Seventeen Body Peace Treaty advocates self-accep-
tance, inside and out. It's touching, really. I think Seventeen
might have stolen the idea from Chicken Soup for the
Teenage Soul, though.
The treaty consists of conditions that people who sign
must follow, and it boasts the support of various interna-
tional celebrities. Some of the conditions are, "Know that
I'm already beautiful just the way I am," and, "Notice all the
amazing things my body is doing for me every moment I
walk, talk, think and breathe."
Stars who endorse the campaign include Carrie
Underwood, Ciara, Brittany Snow and Pink. So far, the
Seventeen Web site has garnered more than 5,000 "signa-
tures."
Seventeen also received backing from "Heroes" star and
Barbie-doll look-alike Hayden Panettiere, who stressed that
she, too, experiences "fat days." In other words, even though
Panettiere knows that America knows she's gorgeous, rich
and famous, she occasionally feels fat and ugly, too.
My parents always told me I was special, but the words
of these celebrities truly affected me. Sitting on the couch and
watching them make millions of dollars off of their looks re-
ally motivates me to listen to their sincere words.
So, great idea, Seventeen. You could also join forces with
Playboy's abstinence-only program. Or what about Zeta Tau
Alpha Sorority's new etiquette education program? Sounds
great in theory. Actually, it just sounds really funny.
As humans, we'd be stupid to ignore the fact that we're all
insecure. But honestly, don't insult our intelligence by round-
ing up a bunch of stars who hide their flaws on a daily basis,


eled by magazines

is just fine.
And it would also be a lot easier
to take Seventeen's well-meaning
campaign seriously if the headlines
on its cover didn't stress the impor-
Stephanie tance of outward appearance.
Rosenberg For example, one headline on the
cover of the newest edition reads
letters@alligator.org "695 Ways To Look Great Every
Day." I thought there was only one
way to look great, Seventeen. I thought accepting myself
would be good enough. Maybe you meant to say there's
always room for self-improvement along with self-accep-
tance.
Another Seventeen article in that issue I found very sus-
picious: "Your Hottest Abs, Butt and Legs: Tone your body
fast." According to the conditions of this peace treaty, I
should be happy I have a body at all. I should be happy that
my un-toned body can walk, talk and breathe.
Until there are changes within the magazine itself, the
contradicting messages of the publication renders this treaty
shallow. Don't worry, though. I have a solution to save this
worthwhile campaign.
All Seventeen has to do to make this work is get rid of the
makeup section, the clothes section, all the ads except the
"Got Milk?" ads because those are awesome and change
all the content of its magazine to mental health and fitness ar-
ticles. And it should also do away with airbrushing because
that doesn't promote self-acceptance.
Got that, Seventeen? If you want to make this work, no
fashion, makeup, models, ads and absolutely no airbrush-
ing.
But wait wouldn't that mean no more Seventeen?
Ah, peace at last.

Letters to the Editor
Alligator harmed sorority's reputation
I'm extremely disappointed with the
publicity given to Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority
in Wednesday's Alligator.
Zeta was misrepresented and portrayed
as an organization without integrity, class or
pride in being a part of UF.
As an invited guest at this particular date
function, I can say it was a great success with
the exception of those few incidents.
I found it disappointing that the edito-
rial board made the implication that "they
thought they could get away with it just
because they were Greek."
I am not Greek, and I still think it's terri-
ble the board would make such allegations.
The fact that Zeta's national office is of-
fering to pay for damages reflects the orga-
nization's common ideal of responsibility.
And you're right, "everyone will remem-
ber the time its women trashed a restau-


rant," because you aided in stereotyping on
Page 1 instead of highlighting how Zeta is
trying to raise $30,000 for breast cancer.
Jon-Erik Escribano

Zeta event sounded like a fun night
"Way to embarrass all of UF"? Seriously?
Am I really reading this?
A month after Andrew Meyer was
Tasered by University Police Department
officers, Zeta's date function is the universal
embarrassment for UF?
I had two thoughts when I read this
story: I wish I had gone it sounded like a
good time. And it reminds me of every night
I have ever worked at a bar downtown.
The embarrassment to UF isn't the soror-
ity that's already raised $20,000 this month
for breast cancer research. It's the editorial


board that can't find something more rel-
evant to write about than drunken antics.

Recent Alligator coverage lacks heart
The Independent Florida Alligator
should know its own history. The whole
reason behind the "independent" in its title
is because it could no longer associate itself
with the university administration due to its
commitment to investigative and unrelent-
ing reporting on controversial issues in the
1960s and '70s.
Lately, though, all it seems to produce are
lazy and complacent news reports, such as
the coverage of the "No War, No Warming"
protest.


Instead of a not-so-subtle attempt at
infantilizing the anti-war movement, why
not treat it as what it is exciting, progres-
sive political activism provoking student
thought.
The Alligator's role should be to foster
discourse, not to make it cute by featuring 9-
year-olds rather than the people who spent
endless hours planning the event.
Criticize it if you want, but investigate
the subject further. Yes, free speech is a great
thing, but the Alligator must have forgotten
the part about freedom of the press and
journalistic integrity at that.
Come on, Alligator. You can and
have done better. Until things improve,
I propose a new slogan: We selectively and
irresponsibly inform. You can decide if
you feel like it.

SFCC

SFCC participates in sustainability day for first time


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville mayor Pegeen
Hanrahan and SFCC President
Jackson Sasser discussed the pos-
sibility of a mass transit system for
SFCC students Wednesday.
The discussion was part of the
first time SFCC participated in the
annual Campus Sustainability Day,
said Julie Garrett, a member of the
Sustainable Santa Fe Committee.
The committee is a group of fac-
ulty, staff and students who are
trying to make SFCC a more sus-
tainable campus, Garrett said.


"Transit is a big issue because
the Santa Fe students don't have
the same opportunity as the
UF students to ride the buses,"
Hanrahan said.
Hanrahan said she and Sasser
will work together to bring the
issue of a mass transit system for
SFCC to the state Legislature's
higher education committee to get
it approved.
Other than a mass transit
system, Sasser and Hanrahan
discussed other ways for SFCC
to have a more environmentally
friendly campus, which included
recycling and how sustainability


could become a part of every cur-
riculum at the college.
They held a lunch on what a
sustainable SFCC would look like
in the S Building
on the northwest
campus.
>' D a n c e
Theatre Santa Fe
Also performed
a dance routine
around cam-
Hanrahan pus with large
spheres that
represented the earth.
Local businesses, nonprofit
groups, government groups and


SFCC's Model United Nations set
tables up to inform the students
and staff what to do to practice
sustainability on the E Breezeway
of the northwest campus.
Mike Amish represented
Indigo, a locally owned business
located downtown. Amish said
that Indigo is a green home and
business supply store.
He said Indigo sells things such
as recycled trash bags, cleaning
supplies, floors, countertops and
shingles, all made from environ-
mentally friendly parts.
"We are trying to help change
the way people build the homes


and help them live healthy lives at
the same time," Amish said.
Ramesh Buch, land conserva-
tion program manager for Alachua
County Forever, said that the
group was started in 2000 to keep
space in the county green and
open.
It is in the process of figuring
out which will be preserved and
which will be set up for recre-
ational use.
Rebecca Rogers, project man-
ager of facilities and services for
SFCC, said the day is a celebration
of sustainability in higher educa-
tion.


Meyer appeared to sound 'elated'

that level of resistance warranted officers
to restrain him, move him somewhere else,
hold him to the ground or inflict pain to gain
compliance.
The report also stated that on the way to
the jail, the police recorded Meyer's conversa-
tion without his knowledge, and Meyer told
officers that they didn't do anything wrong.
He also asked if cameras would be at the
jail.
While at jail, Meyer made two phone calls,
which were recorded and reviewed for the in-
vestigation. The report states that he "appears
to sound elated that the arrest has occurred
and at one point, states that he is happy this
has happened."
Meyer spent the night in jail and was re-
leased around noon on Sept. 18.

new garage that will be built near the
office of Transportation and Parking

the garage with solar cells so it will be
completely solar-powered.

Best of The Fest


The Fest 6 takes over

downtown this weekend

BETH ROMANIK I AVENUE WRITER


If it seems as though there are
a lot more bearded, PBR-chug-
ging 20-somethings in tight jeans
roaming Gainesville today than
usual, it's not your imagination.
The sixth annual Fest is upon
us.
Hipsters,' punks and music
aficionados of all types have
descended on our fair town to
see the more than 200 bands
that signed up to pack eight of
downtown's most popular music
venues this weekend.
If you're a visitor to
Gainesvegas (or one of a surpris-
ing number of residents who
haven't heard of The Fest's exis-
tence until now but want a part of
it), tear these pages out and put
them in the back pocket of your
Levi's cutoffs. This is a guide to
the best of The Fest.

Best Bands to Keep an
Eye Out For
5. Defiance, Ohio
(Sunday, 4:05 p.m., 2nd Street
Bakery)
It's not every day you find a
band with its roots in punk rock
and a cello on its stage. The acous-
tic folk-punk band Defiance,
Ohio pulls it off, though, and its
enthusiastic show will have you
singing and clapping along with

the banjo and harmonica.
4. Planes Mistaken for Stars
(Friday, 9:40 p.m., Common
Grounds)
It's true: Planes Mistaken For
Stars announced in July that af-
ter a decade of swapping band
members and changing genres,
they decided to part ways. You
should pay tribute to the post-
hardcore band formerly signed to
Gainesville's very own No Idea
Records.
3. Paint It Black
(Saturday, midnight, Common
Grounds)
This Philly-based hardcore
punk band's energetic, shout-
singing style is reminiscent of
old-school bands gone by. It's no
wonder, considering current and
past members of Paint It Black
were also involved in the influ-
ential punk bands Lifetime, Kid
Dynamite, Good Riddance and
None More Black.
2. Small Brown Bike
(Sunday, 8 p.m., The Venue)
Small Brown Bike's Fest show
is the last of only five this year,
a special reunion tour after a
breakup in 2004. This could be
your last chance to hear their me-
lodic double vocals and '80s-like
guitar riffs live, so take advan-
tage of it.

(Sunday, 7 p.m., The Venue)
If history is any indicator, this
band is actually another, more
well-known Gainesville band
that also possesses the initials

they play their hometown. Just
a hint.

5. Youth Brigade
(Friday, 11:30 p.m., The
Venue)
Three brothers formed Youth
Brigade in 1980, beginning the
punk epidemic in L.A. They've
broken up and reformed a num-
ber of times, but 2006 brought
these punk legends back to tour-
ing.

band from a Fat Wreck Chords
compilation, but they go back
much further. Since 1994, they've
put out five albums of their
Americana brand of punk rock,
and as Fest veterans, they'll
definitely play their best crowd-
pleasers.
3. Avail
(Saturday, 7:10 p.m., The
Venue)
Avail was formed in 1987,
and although they've released
almost a dozen albums, it was
likely 2000's "One Wrench" that
changed the lives of all of us
middle-school punk wannabes.
A live show lets Avail showcase
their range of musical styles,
from classic punk to more pop-
friendly punk to '70s-era rock
'n' roll.
2. Seaweed
(Sunday, 9:20 p.m., The
Venue)
Seaweed was born around the
same time as many of you fresh-
men, and the band quickly earned
a reputation for its gritty punk
music and energetic live shows.
The influential band broke up
about a decade later, but they
reformed earlier this year and a
new album is in the works.
1. Naked Raygun
(Friday, half past midnight,
The Venue)
Formed in 1981, the Chicago-
based Naked Raygun is consid-
ered one of the first post-punk
bands in the U.S. They broke up
a year later but reformed in 2006,
bringing back their political lyr-
ics and melodic hardcore style of
music to stages.

Will Matt & Kim's upbeat songs get stuck in your head? Yea, yeah.


BETH ROMANIK I AVENUE WRITER
Nowadays, it seems too many bands have fights
and power struggles, too many albums are seen as
status symbols and too many shows are treated as
recitals.
Enter Matt and Kim. Bands
The energetic power couple from into it
Brooklyn breathes some fresh air into o w
the pop-punk indie genre with their other t/
uninhibited, unselfconscious brand Anything else tt
of music. is the
Matt Johnson and Kim Schifino Matt Johns
met at art school and, after dating Half of Matt 8
a couple of years, decided to start
messing around with the idea of
forming a band. Creatively, they decided on the band
name Matt & Kim.
"We were just sort of jamming, really," Matt said.
"Kim naturally liked drumming, and I found this key-
board I thought would be cool to learn to play."
And that's pretty much where they are now. Matt
plays fuzzy notes on his keyboard and shouts lyrics ex-
uberantly, while Kim bashes simple, toe-tapping time
signatures on her drum kit and adds a background yell
now and again.
Rather than limiting the band, the fact that they uti-
lize only two instruments (other than their voices) has
just made them think more creatively, Matt said.
"We have to make songs work, which can make cool
things happen that you wouldn't expect to happen,"
he said. "It just makes you do things differently, which
can be good. It gives you good surprises."
Considering the couple is adorable and the band
has no other members, it was inevitable that fans
would draw comparisons between Matt & Kim and
Mates of State.
"We actually didn't hear about them until after our
first couple of shows, after people told us, 'Hey, you're
like this band, we think you'd like them,'" Matt con-
fessed. "So we checked them out, and we like them,
but I think Kim and I just come from a different place.
We come from a more punk rock sort of background,
and they..." Matt hesitated, giving Kim a window in
which to yell into the phone, "It's slow!" causing them
both to laugh.
"Slow" is definitely not a word to describe Matt or
Kim, and definitely not the two of them together. Their
live show sees them rolling out the infectious beats
nonstop, grinning all the while.
"I'd like to try to think of it like a party," Matt said
of their concerts. "We like to have fun what we don't
want to do is have a recital. We want people to come
and let loose."

Consequently, they play more basements and lofts
than clubs, and everyone just laughs when a crowd
surfer almost knocks the set over or someone rushes
onstage to shove pizza in Kim's mouth.
Matt and Kim have been criss-

at comes with it bringing them back to Gainesville
this weekend for The Fest, their last
bonus. show of the year in the U.S.
>n "Our first tour, we did five,
Kim maybe six shows in Florida, and
there was no one at any of them,"
Matt lamented. "Not long after that we came back (to
Florida) and did someTnore shows, and they were all
really awesome. The one in Gainesville was super fun,


so we got revived on Florida."
As for expectations for their show here Sunday,
the first thing Matt thought of to say was, "Well, Kim
is trying to collect every Rhode Island quarter ever
made, so if people at the show want to bring her some,
that would be very cool."
She's got about 600 so far, and "she thinks she's
going to have all of them," Matt said, before Kim inter-
rupted from the background again, "I will have all of
them!"
Being showered with quarters is a perk that didn't
occur to Matt & Kim when they started their band.
"Bands should never go into it with any intention
other than to have fun," Matt said. "Anything else that
comes with it is the bonus."
Catch them Sunday at 2nd Street Bakery at 6:05

Battle of the band games: Guitar Hero Ill vs. Rock Band


I love rock 'n' roll.
I suck at playing the guitar.
So you can imagine how happy
I was when Harmonix Music
Systems came out with their guitar
simulation game, Guitar Hero, in
2005. College dorms haven't been
the same since.
A sequel and an expansion later,
Guitar Hero is now one of the most
played games on any university's
campus, where everyone loves play-
ing such classics as "Free Bird" by
Lynyrd Skynyrd and "Sweet Child
0' Mine" by Guns N' Roses.
Guitar Hero Ill: Legends of
Rock will be released Sunday. This
time, they have a new developer,
Neversoft (the makers of the Tony
Hawk series), and they're poised to
retake the video game industry.
Unfortunately, they have consid-
erable competition. Harmonix has
teamed up with MTV to make Rock
Band, a game they think will make


Guitar Hero II look like a fourth-
grade strings lesson.
Rock Band, which comes out
Nov. 23, will include the guitar
peripheral just like the previous ren-
ditions of Guitar Hero did and just
like Guitar Hero IIl will. Here's the
kicker: It also includes bass, vocals
and even drums to make the rest of
the band.
You and friends will form, name,
dress, customize and play with a
band that you create.
You'll then sweep the nation,
playing songs and gathering fans
on your way to rock glory. You can
play any of the four instruments and
have the computer play the rest, or
you can get your friends to fill in
with you.
While Guitar Hero III is tout-
ing a new battle mode, Rock Band
promises to fulfill you and your mu-
sically challenged friends' dreams
of making a band. The game will

teresting. On the other hand, Guitar

include the guitar, drum kit and
microphone, which includes pitch
recognition technology, peripherals
in-box.
Of course, the song lineup is
what really matters. Guitar Hero
In has 73 confirmed titles to date,
which allows it to have a few lesser-
known tracks, while Rock Band
relies on 40 mostly hit songs.
The real difference is more in
the downloadable content. Upon
release, Harmonix has guaranteed
new content for Rock Band avail-
able online each week that will often
include complete albums such as
"Who's Next" by The Who and
"Nevermind" by Nirvana, while
Guitar Hero III only has plans for
individual track releases.
It seems that you won't be able
to play through career mode with
bandmates over the Internet in
Rock Band yet, but both games will
include online competition.
Rock Band has the potential to
rock harder than Guitar Hero IIl.

UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

Freshman center Crawford adjusts to college game


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

This sure isn't high school ball
anymore.
At least that much is clear to
freshman center Ebonie Crawford
after the first few weeks of prac-
tice with the UF women's basket-
ball team.
Her opposition in the paint will
be far different than it was during
high school play in Atlanta.
Now Crawford will be matched
up against athletes just as big and
just as talented.
"I didn't really have too many
girls who could guard me or I was
getting double-teamed, triple-
teamed a lot of times," she said.
"That's the biggest difference
coming in here. Now you have
girls that are your height, girls
that are your level."
It will be quite a change as


she adapts to competing against
players like Tennessee's Candace
Parker and LSU's Sylvia Fowles.
A year ago, Crawford looked
up to the pair.
Now she'll take them on in the
paint and compete with them for
rebounds.
Crawford knows she has to
work on her low post game if she
wants to excel in the paint.
"In the (Southeastern
Conference), the girls are faster,
the girls are bigger, the girls are
stronger," Crawford said. "The
game is physical so you've got to
get in the habit of posting up big,
posting up strong. It's a different
game. It's different from high
school."
She said the speed of the game
is the biggest difference in the col-
lege game.
"It's back and forth," Crawford
said. "You have a shot clock now.
You have to get used to working


with a shot clock, running your
plays, knowing that you don't
have time to dribble all across the
court."
"That's the biggest differ-
ence coming in here. Now
you have girls that are your
height, girls that are your
level."
Ebonle Crawford
UF freshman center

Crawford and junior transfer
Aneika Henry, both listed at 6 foot
3, became the tallest players on the
Gators' roster from the moment
they stepped on campus.
Junior forward Marshae Dotson
welcomes the post help.
"We needed it," Dotson said.
"It was me and [former UF for-
ward Briana Phillips] that were


probably the tallest people on the
team (last season). It's a big help
for us."
UF's atmosphere influenced
Crawford's decision to play in
Gainesville.
"That's one of the things I just
loved," she said. "I got down here
on my official visit, and I was just
like, 'Oh I definitely want to come
here.'"
The possibility of playing time
early in her career didn't hurt
either.
The freshman knew that UF
lacked height last season, and she
looks forward to making a quick
impact on the team.
"I'm coming in now, working
hard so that way I will get some
playing time," she said. "I know
that I will be called upon early, so
I'm looking forward to it."
Coach Amanda Butler said a
lot of college-level adjustment was
made during the summer.


"When [the freshmen] got here
on campus in July, we started
them in the weight room and
started them playing pick up with
one another and getting a glimpse
not just into the physical nature
of ball at our level, but also the
speed," Butler said. "That is going
to be a huge adjustment for them.
Being in shape ... and the mental
aspect of having to make quick
mental transitions."
It'll have to be a quick learning
curve for Crawford as she'll likely
be called on to log plenty of key
minutes.
The nonconference schedule
will be crucial on-the-job training
for Crawford.
Dotson remembers what it's
like when conference games roll
around each spring.
"As soon as we start SEC games
it's like hitting the wall," Dotson
said. "Every year when we get in
conference it's a total difference."


Versatile Gators share offensive, defensive responsibilities


* UF FACES ARKANSAS IN FAYETTE-
VILLE TONIGHT AT 8.

By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer

Ashley Harris isn't claiming that the
UF soccer team is as good as the Brazilian
national team.
It's just that for Harris, the easiest way
to describe the Gators and their versatility
is with a comparison to one of the world's
best squads.
"When you play Brazil, you can't just
say, 'hey, we're going to mark one player,'
because if you do that someone else is go-
ing to score," she said. "The thing with our
team is you can't just say, 'we're going to
mark Stacy (Bishop), or 'we're going to


mark Ameera (Abdullah) or whoever,' be-
cause Shana (Hudson) or Daniela (Sanchez)
will have opportunities opened up for
them."
Arkansas (8-8-1, 1-6-1 Southeastern
Conference) will have to contend with UF's
versatility tonight at 8 as the Gators (9-4-
2, 5-2 SEC) travel to Fayetteville for a rare
Thursday night match.
UF coach Becky Burleigh prefers to call
UF a "fluid" team. From top to bottom,
Burleigh said, the Gators have the talent to
move around and play different positions
effectively, making them a harder team to
defend and score against.
"We like being able to bring our, de-
fenders up on offense and have them be a
threat to the opposing team," Burleigh said.
"Being able to move people up and down
like that makes it tough on both sides."


Harris may fit this playing style best.
After spending three years on defense,
Burleigh decided that the Gators could use
Harris' speed on offense and moved the
senior to forward.
The experiment paid
off. One of UF's premier
defenders has become
one of its best offensive
threats.
Harris has scored six
goals this season, ty-
ing Bishop, a preseason
Harris All-SEC forward, for the
team lead.
Senior defender Hudson has also helped
out on offense this season. She scored her
second goal of the year during Sunday's 5-1
rout of Alabama.
The Gators' fluidity also gives them an


advantage on the defensive end. Burleigh
has emphasized screening, or playing ag-
gressive defense in the passing lanes, to
make it more difficult for opposing defend-
ers and midfielders to move the ball up to
their forwards.
"Denying the ball to the forwards puts
teams at a huge disadvantage," defender
Lauren Hyde said. "When they do get shot
attempts, they're taking shots from up top
instead of in the box, which makes it much
harder to score."
UF's screening has stymied opponents
all season. The team has forced seven shut-
outs.
"I think the defense is always under-
rated," Hyde said. "When you stop a team
from scoring, that takes pressure off the
offensive players, and they can be more
aggressive."

Forward Mitchell hopes to follow in Noah's footsteps


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

He may not have the crazy curls, lanky
body or scrappy style of play, but Jonathan
Mitchell is determined to become UF's next
Joakim Noah.
"Coach (Billy Donovan) hit me with the
Joakim Noah story," Mitchell said. "We
played the same kind of minutes, and he told
me to just keep working hard, and for some
reason I just took it to the heart and worked
harder every day."
Similar to the former Gators and current
Chicago Bulls forward, Mitchell suffered
through an unproductive first year. Mitchell
averaged just 1.2 points in only 6.2 minutes
per game. Noah contributed 3.5 points in 9.4
minutes in the 2004-05 season.
In each of their first years, Noah and
Mitchell both failed to start a game or play
more than two minutes total in the NCAA
tournament.
This is where the similarities end. Mitchell
now has a mountain to climb if he ever wish-
es to cast a shadow as large as Noah's.
At this point, Noah's legacy is cemented
in the history books: a two-time national
champion, MVP of the Final Four and a top-
10 NBA Draft selection.
Mitchell is aware that the task ahead will
be difficult but said he is doing all he can to
reach his goals.
"This summer I just took everything
and worked hard everyday," he said.
"Conditioning, dribbling, shooting, passing.
I'm trying to be the best player and the most
complete player that I can be. It was a real
intense summer for me this year."
Whether or not Mitchell will ever reach
that point is hard to determine, but his talent
is obvious. Mitchell averaged 19.5 points and
7.6 rebounds in his senior season at Mount
Vernon High School (Mount Vernon, N.Y.)
en route to being named New York's Mr.
Basketball.
While in high school, Mitchell looked up to


another Chicago Bulls player Ben Gordon.
Gordon, a former University of Connecticut
standout and national champion with the
Huskies, also attended Mount Vernon High.
Mitchell broke Gordon's all-time school scor-
ing record during his senior season.
While Mitchell's ability is there, Donovan
still doesn't seem completely sold on the
sophomore
"I think that Jonathan Mitchell has
worked hard, but there's also an internal
competitiveness that I haven't seen out of
[the sophomore class] yet," he said. "It's a
different thing when you talk about a guy's
will to win and when you go into a game to
impact winning. I feel like guys in the past
that we had on teams impacted winning."
Donovan said Mitchell
and ifis fellow sophomores
Dan Werner and Marreese
Speights have been up and
Men's down so far in practice.
Basketball Donovan is looking for con-
sistency from his returning
players, just four on a roster
of 11.
"I really haven't seen a different mind set,
which for me is disappointing," Donovan
said. "I just thought that mentally, in terms
of the competitiveness, fatigue and fighting
through being tired, those guys have been re-
ally inconsistent. No question the sophomore
class has to be consistent everyday for us, and
they haven't been up to this point."
With seven freshmen on the roster,
Mitchell now assumes a leadership role
something that might take some getting
used to.
"I'm just trying to do what I can, help out
in any way," he said. "I try to teach the new
guys What I know to stress the little things,
rebound and do what you have to do get the
job done."
Heading into the new season, Mitchell
will feature a new look on the court. The for-
mer No. 23 has switched his number to 0, a
change that means a lot to the sophomore.

"I changed my number to No. 0 this year feel like the impossible is nothing. I feel like
because I feel kind of like the Gilbert Arenas last year I didn't play too much, and I'm go-
story," he said. "I could kind of relate to it. I ing to prove people wrong now."

QB aims for better result against UF

N STAFFORD STRUGGLED AGAINST THE
GATORS LAST SEASON.

By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org "

Ask Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford .
what happened against UF last year, and he will
answer bluntly.
"I didn't play well at all," Stafford said. "I
turned the ball over three times. We turned it over
five as a team."
Stafford completed 13 of 33 passes for 151
yards in an ugly 21-14 loss. He was sacked four
times, threw two interceptions and lost a fumble.
He laid one more egg in a loss to Kentucky the
next week before finishing his season on perhaps
the hottest streak of any passer in the country
as unranked Georgia won three straight games
against teams in the top 16.
Stafford has taken his up-and-down freshman
year, including the forgettable UF game, and used
the experience to help him adjust to being a full- .
time starter as a sophomore.
He hopes his hard work will translate into a
better performance as No. 20 Georgia (5-2, 3-2 -
Southeastern Conference) prepares to take on No.
9 UF (5-2, 3-2 SEC) on Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
"You can learn a whole lot more by playing
than you can just sitting on the sideline," Stafford
said. "You can get out there and get game experi-
ence. I think it helped me progress this year and
hopefully in the future."
Georgia coach Mark Richt noticed Stafford's
improvement from game to game as a freshman.
He has seen early success this year and greater
respect from his older teammates.
"Being put into the leadership role the way he
is, he has to take in things a little bit quicker than
most people," senior safety Kelin Johnson said. 1 ...?
"He's been put into the fire."
Through seven games, Stafford has upped his
completion percentage from 52.7 to 55.3 and his
passing efficiency has risen from 109 to 122. "".., : 4, J ... ..

VOLUME 101 ISSUE 45 the independent florida iiiato Not officially associated with the Unwersity of Florida Published by Campus Cormuncatons, Inc. of Gainesvlle, Flor da We Inform. You Decide. 9"L iecyl 7 THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2007 ON CAMPUS Taser report backs officers By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@alligator.org The UF police officers who Tasered Andrew Meyer at a September speech were well within the guidelines for use of foi-ce, according to a report from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's investigation. Eddie King and Nicole Lynn Mallo -the two officers who were suspended with pay after the event -are back on duty, UF President Bernie Machen wrote in an emailed statement. The report stated that the officers used a Taser because it would provide minimal injury, have no lasting side effects, and the officers would gain control in the least time with the least effort. The officers opted not to use CC spray, known as pepper spray, because it could have also affected other members of the audience, the report stated. Other options would have been to use hand strikes, kicks, knee strikes or batons. These methods were not used because they would have caused greater injury to Meyer, the report said. Meyer, a UF telecommunication senior, was Tasered and arrested after officers said he resisted arrest with violence and disturbed the peace at a Sen. John Kerry speech Sept. 17. Meyer and his lawyer, Robert Griscti, could not comment on the investigation because Meyer's charges are pending, Griscti wrote in a statement. Meyer faces a third-degree felony for resisting arrest with violence and a second-degree misdemeanor for disturbing the peace. The report stated that Meyer acted with "active physical resistance," meaning he either tensed his body or tried to push or pull away. Under guidelines for police use of force, SEE FDLE, PAGE 8 Circus attracts families, protesters E THE COLE BROS. CIRCUS IS AT THE OAKS MALL. By JENNIFER BINGAMAN Alligator Contributing Writer Black, pink and baby-blue poodles rode in a tiny pink car and jumped from a ladder suspended in the air Wednesday evening. It was just a small moment in the show of Cole Bros. Circus at The 0ak Mal ,led by ringmaster Chris Connors. The poodles arrived in an old-fashioned, hot-pink miniature car. They leapt through rings, barrel-rolled and rode around on feather-covered scooters. A white poodle leapt from a ladder into the safety of a purple blanket shortly before the poodles exited the tent walking on their hind legs in a conga line. Performing to the tune of "Wipe Out," three giant elephants danced and skipped in a thundering fashion around the ring. The crowd let out shouts of amazement as the elephants stood on only two feet and performed handstands. While the display was pleasing to onlookers, protesters were outside the circus. Animal Activists of Alachua, Scott Robertson / Alligator Staff Encouraged by commands from its trainer, an elephant poses for the audience during the Cole Bros. Circus in The Oaks Mall parking lot Wednesday night. a student-run animal rights group, held signs that read "The Cruelest Show on Earth." Kavita Rajasekhar, a 25-yearold UF medical student and member of the group, said the treatment of elephants in the circus is inhumane. She said the elephants are trained by whipping them in their trunks and legs. "It's not like they have this thick skin that doesn't hurt," Rajasekhar said. Renee Storey, a spokesperson for the Cole Bros. Circus, said the tool that trainers use, called an ankus, serves the same purpose as a leash and collar for a dog. "It is used as a guiding device," Storey said. "Not as a device for punishment." While elephants and poodles SEE CIRCUS, PAGE 5 Energy options discussed at forum By KORI FREDERICK Alligator Writer Despite a steady drizzle, about 50 UF students showed up Wednesday to discuss the uses of a renewable energy fee. The forum was part of festivities for National Campus Sustainability Day. Last spring, 78 percent of students voted in favor of a 50-cent-per-credit tuition increase to be used for research and development into renewable energy on campus. Student Government passed legislation supporting the fee Tuesday night. But university administrators wanted to move forward with the new technology fee, which will be applied in 2009, before considering whether to approve the renewable energy fee. "This will add up to $650,000 for renewable energy at UF." Kelly Moosbrugger Gators for a Sustainable Campus treasurer The fee breaks down to $7 a semester per student, or $14 a year, said Kelly Moosbrugger, treasurer of Gators for a Sustainable Campus. "This will add up to $650,000 for renewable energy at UF," she said. Moosbrugger said a committee of students, staff and faculty would be responsible for how the fee is used if it is passed. If all 11 state universities chose to adopt the fee, it could generate $3 million a year, she said.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2007 N ALLIGATOR, 3 ON CAMPUS Stuzin popular spot for 'cruising' By JACLYN STARK Alligator Contributing Writer The men's restroom of Stuzin Hall on UF's campus is a top spot for gay "cruising" in Gainesville, according to a Web site that lists popular cruising locations. Members of Squirt.org, who are identified by screen names to protect their identities, have posted more than 100 comments about Stuzin Hall to discuss experiences and to arrange meetings in the men's restrooms for sex. All kinds of people participate in cruising in order to find same-sex partners for a "one-night stand," said Evan Lauteria, an intern for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Affairs at UP. Cruising is a forum in which people can practice same-sex relations without having to identify themselves as a member of the LGBT community, said Lauteria, who is also the director of the Intercollegiate Pride Conference. "There are members of the LGBT community who do cruise, but not everyone who cruises is a member of the LGBT community," he said. Cruising could reinforce negative ideas that the LGBT community is promiscuous and not able to maintain relationships, Lauteria said. Brett Scharf, a UF health science junior, said another UF student heard Stuzin Hall was an active cruising spot and decided to investigate it. "There are members of the LGBT community who do cruise, but not everyone who cruises is a member of the LGBT community." Evan Lauteria intern for LGBT Affairs at UF "My friend told a few of us about Stuzin as a ground for gay cruising," he said. "This guy wanted to find out if a Web site [Squirt.org] he came across contained factual information, so he went to the source to test it." The student did not engage in sexual relations, but he signaled to someone in the men's restroom, received a response and then left, Scharf said. Employees who work in the Stuzin Hall area say they doubt the rumors are true. UF graduate students Eean Crawford and Jessica Saul, who share an office a few doors down from a men's restroom in Stuzin Hall, said they haven't noticed suspicious behavior. Capt. Jeff Holcomb, spokesman for the University Police Department, said gay cruising isn't a major problem on campus. "In the past, we've had problems with situations like this, but it's been at least ten years or so since we've had complaints about it," Holcomb said. Holcomb said there used to be concerns with several buildings, and officers were working undercover to find solicitors. "We've actually made arrests this way," he said. The past problems with cruising occurred mostly in Matherly Hall, Holcomb said. UN raises money By KATIE GALLAGHER Alligator Writer kgallagher@alligator.org UF Model United Nations raised more than $250 for malaria prevention Wednesday as part of National United Nations Day. The group set up tables from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. near Library West. Representatives solicited donations from passersby and people eating Krishna lunch. Amanda MacDougall, coordinator and conference service director, said the group hoped to raise at least $600 for Nothing But Nets, a campaign that provides insecticide-treated mosquito nets to people in areas at risk for malaria in Africa. The money will all go to Nothing But Nets to buy the $10 nets, which are large enough for an entire family to sleep under, she said. The group set up a small basketball hoop to attract students. "I think the most important thing Local we're here News for is to raise awareness," MacDougall said. The Model UN chose to raise money for malaria prevention because it feels it is an issue that is not given enough attention, she said. Model UN President Justin Berlin said the group will go to organizations on campus this week to raise the rest of the money to reach its goal. -'I-I-I A )I ( R IC (-jh N iGHT ,~ : $.

4, ALLIGATOR 0 THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2007 PUBLIC HEALTH UF offers vaccine for flu season By DEVIN CULCLASURE Alligator Writer dculclasure@alligator.org Wednesday's damp, chilly weather was a hint of the approaching winter and its corresponding flu season. UF's Student Health Care Center and the Healthy Gator 2010 Coalition announced in a news release Wednesday that they are launching a fall campaign to prevent the spread of infectious diseases on campus. Both organizations are urging students to receive vaccinations for influenza and meningococcal meningitis, which can spread easily among college students facing crowded classes, shared living spaces and a hectic lifestyle. Students can get flu shots, which help build immune system protection prior to flu season, for $5 at SHCC, while faculty and staff will have to shell out $25. Those who have not been vaccinated for meningitis are also encouraged to spend $126 for a vaccine called Menactra that decreases but does not eliminate the risk of infection. Though the vaccine is mandatory for new students prior to registration, they can waive the prerequisite after reading about the disease and vaccination. Meningococcal meningitis can quickly lead to swelling in the brain, coma and death. University of South Florida student Rachel Futterman, 19, died from meningitis Sept. 24, and a nursing student from the University of Central Florida is now hospitalized with the disease. "The importance of vaccination in the prevention of meningococcal disease and influenza cannot be overemphasized," said Dr. Phil Barkley, center director, in the release. "In combination with a commonsense approach to the prevention of common upper respiratory illnesses, the morbidity and mortality due to these diseases can be reduced," Barkley said. Veteran BET comic performing at UF 0 BENJI BROWN WILL APPEAR TODAY. By MARIA THOMAS Alligator Contributing Writer Benji Brown, a comedian and actor, will perform for UF students today at 8 p.m. in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom. Brown will perform in an event for Black Student Union Homecoming Week. "Anyone can appreciate his comedy," said Shakelia LeBlanc, BSU homecoming director. The free event will follow the group's pep rally at 6 p.m., which will incorporate a special ribbon fundraiser for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People Legal Defense Fund. Brown is a personality on Miami's WEDR-FM 99 Jamz "Big Lip Bandit Morning Show." But the airwaves aren't the only place where the comedian's fans can find him. On an Internet video, Brown parodies the "Maury Povich Show" in a show in which he plays KiKi, a mother dressed in a skintight gold outfit searching for her baby's father. Brown is veteran of BET's C o m i c Multicultural View" and AffairS appeared on MTV's "Nick Cannon Presents: Wild 'N Out" in June. He has also worked with Chris Rock, the Queens of Comedy and rap artists Trina and Trick Daddy. Unlike other comedians, Brown tells jokes as both himself and through his characters, LeBlanc said through giggles. After the show, Brown will sign autographs and take pictures with fans.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 5 UI]DLETIE EBIG 9FDFP Performers share stories By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer For Andrey Medeiros, the circus means more than doing daredevil motorcycle moves for a wide-eyed crowd. Past the visually pleasing acrobatics and life-threatening tricks are family bonds between performers and staff. Medeiros revs up a motorcycle almost every night and takes it, for a ride in the ThunderDrome: The Moto-Globe of Death. He joins three motorcyclists in a spherical cage that is about 18 feet wide. The cage shakes and shimmies as they weave paths. They can almost touch hands. Medeiros said that during the dangerous feat he has to "take care of the guys." Besides strengthening trust, the band of traveling nomads sometimes forms everlasting relationships. A man and a woman meet under the big top and get married. A baby is bom and travels with them amund the country. The spouses perform together in the circus and live happily ever after. Under the flame-retardant vinyl tent, Medeiros has started his family. Medeiros, originally from Brazil, met his wife four years ago while performing gymnastics with relatives at Cole Bros. Circus. "I fell in love with a beautiful girl from Bulgaria who is a showgirl in the show," Medeiros said. When his family decided to perform with another circus, he had the hard choice of staying with Cole Bros. and his love interest or leaving it all behind. "I chose love," he said. Since then, Medeiros and his wife Viky have performed and traveled together with the circus. "My wedding was right here in the tent, in the ring," he said. His son, Christopher, is the fifth generation of his family to be in the circus. He lives in a world where applause is the stamp of approval, the rowdy noise of success. Where elephants are fed marshmallows by trainers as they're led in circles around the ring. The Cole Bros. Circus crew travels across the country, toting its animals and props to different cities from March to November. With about 25 semi-trucks in tow, RV campers full of families follow on their tour throughout the U.S. Performance director Chris Connors said the circus is an international family business. "As ringmaster, I say, 'Our family welcomes your family,'" Connors said. As a little boy, his family was a member of the Circus Fans Association of America. Jimmy James, who was Cole Bros. Circus ringmaster for 35 years, used to feed him his bottled milk as a youngster, Connors said. The career grew on him, and he said he hopes to live up to the circus reputation of Jimmy James. He has been the Cole Bros. ringmaster for six years. "Six years .in circus years, that's 35," Scott Robertson / Alligator Staff A motorcyclist rides up the ramp to the entrance of the ThunderDrome during the Cole Bros. Circus' first act, ThunderDrome: The Moto-Globe of Death, on Wednesday night. Connors said with a smile. C.M. Christ, a marketing director for the circus, compares its big top to a self-sustaining city. "It's a city of lights and sights," Christ said. The campers rest behind the towering yellow-and-red big top, creating an intimate town of larger-than-life props and shuffling animals. The Abuhadba family keeps about 16 poodles contained by a small fence next to its camper. Originally from Chile, Rafael Abuhadba travels with his family and its performing pastel poodles. As ringmaster, Connors is used to welcommg new international acts into its program every year. "We're a melting pot on wheels," he said. It has performers who come from locations including Bulgaria, Mexico and Guatemala. It's not unusual for performers and staff to know multiple languages. "They all have one language, and that's circus," Connors said. Medeiros said his son knows three languages at his young age. Christopher, Medeiros' son, was born an American, although his father is from Brazil and his mother is from Bulgaria. Medeiros said this mix of nationalities is a common quality of a traveling circus. "For us, it's a normal life," Medeiros said. "It's a circus life." Circus performers showcased trapeze stunts, tricks atop moving horses CIRCUS, from Page 1 garnerd a significant amount of applause from the crowd, people came to showcase their talents as well. The first event for the evening was the Steel Sphere of Danger featuring the ThunderDrome Riders. The riders slowly trickled into the steel cage to showcase their abilities. The three daredevils revved their engines as they looped above and beside one another in the dome. "You haven't seen anything yet," Connors said. "Whatever you do, don't shut your eyes and hold onto your seats." The sphere unhinged into two halves as the riders rode above Bol/ with ~ccarbstr/&co -'vbtre Cd j Wade*4t Ooiil wcr Trc ci'ic? and below the void within the steel dome. The Kim Brothers performed circus tricks atop Local moving horses in News what Connors dubbed "equestrian artistry." Connors introduced the "celestial stars of the flying trapeze," as a father and his four children entered the tent. The Ponce Family Flyers soared through the air, performing flips and twists as they clung to the trapeze. The youngest, 10-year-old Victoria, flipped from the trapeze and into the clutches of her father's hands at the end of the family's performance. An 11,000-pound cannon rolled into the tent as a finale for the evening. With a heart-shattering boom, a woman rocketed out of the cannon at 65 miles per hour. "It was a little noisy," said Ben French, a 41-year-old Gainesville resident, with his 3-year-old daughter Madelyn. "I liked the horses," Madelyn said. Find someone special.

6, ALLIGATOR N THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2007 Editorial Report Retort Police's Taser use was apparently justified W TF, POLE2 The Florida Department of Law Enforcement's investigation of the Andrew Meyer Tasering incident -Tasergate, as we like to call it -is complete. And the University Police Department has been absolved. Never mind that the Tasering was heard 'round the world. Never mind that it was covered by nearly every major news outlet in the country. Never mind that the videos on YouTube made UF a laughingstock to the world -and Sen. John Kerry, live and in person. No, once again all is well and good in the world, and UPD officers Eddie King and Nicole Lynn Mallo are back on the beat. Using a Taser gun on Meyer was well within the guidelines for use of force, the FDLE's report stated. That may be true, but one part of the job is* knowing how to adapt to different situations and react accordingly. Was it well within the guidelines for use of force for six UPD officers to hold down one average-sized student? If they could drag him all the way to the back of the University Auditorium, couldn't they have just moved him another few yards into the lobby? Who knows -once the cameras were off of him, Meyer may have actually acted reasonably. He did, after all, tell the officers they didn't do anything wrong while he was in the police car afterward. This seems to be a case of an overactive student and some power-hungry cops -a volatile combination, to be sure. So now it's up to UF to determine what to do next. A UF panel is still looking into UF policies in light of the Taser event, and will be doing so for at least the rest of the semester. We hope it takes less of a technical approach than FDLE took and more of a common-sense approach. Cruel and Unusual h, the circus is in town. A timeless tradition. What's not to love? Clowns, tightrope walkers, trapeze artists, human cannonballs. And, oh yeah -the animals. Training for rigorous performances, dealing with crowds of screaming people and being constantly transported cannot be good for the animals. The Cole Bros. Circus has received quite a bit of criticism for how it treats its animals, mainly the elephants. The circus has been charged with animal cruelty before, according to Circuses.com, a Web site that compiles information about animal treatment at circuses. And it's no surprise that members of Animal Activists of Alachua protested the circus. When not performing, the circus' three elephants were kept chained up in a parking lot. Circuses receive a lot of flak for how they treat their animals, and with good reason. Animals were not meant to be kept in cages and trained to do stupid tricks just for the amusement of even stupider humans. Troupes such as Cirque du Soleil have had huge successes with animal-free circuses. It's time for more circuses to move in that direction.

In a video featured on CNN.com, the editor in chief of Seventeen, Ann Shoket, presented the Body Peace Treaty campaign. The Seventeen Body Peace Treaty advocates self-acceptance, inside and out. It's touching, really. I think Seventeen might have stolen the idea from Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul, though. The treaty consists of conditions that people who sign must follow, and it boasts the support of various international celebrities. Some of the conditions are, "Know that I'm already beautiful just the way I am," and, "Notice all the amazing things my body is doing for me every moment I walk, talk, think and breathe." Stars who endorse the campaign include Carrie Underwood, Ciara, Brittany Snow and Pink. So far, the Seventeen Web site has garnered more than 5,000 "signatures." Seventeen also received backing from "Heroes" star and Barbie-doll look-alike Hayden Panettiere, who stressed that she, too, experiences "fat days." In other words, even though Panettiere knows that America knows she's gorgeous, rich and famous, she occasionally feels fat and ugly, too. My parents always told me I was special, but the words of these celebrities truly affected me. Sitting on the couch and watching them make millions of dollars off of their looks really motivates me to listen to their sincere words. So, great idea, Seventeen. You could also join forces with Playboy's abstinence-only program. Or what about Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority's new etiquette education program? Sounds great in theory. Actually, it just sounds really funny. As humans, we'd be stupid to ignore the fact that we're all insecure. But honestly, don't insult our intelligence by rounding up a bunch of stars who hide their flaws on a daily basis, eled by magazines then tell America that imperfection is just fine. And it would also be a lot easier to take Seventeen's well-meaning campaign seriously if the headlines on its cover didn't stress the imporStephanie tance of outward appearance. Rosenberg For example, one headline on the cover of the newest edition reads lettero@aigabor.org "695 Ways To Look Great Every Day" I thought there was only one way to look great, Seventeen. I thought accepting myself would be good enough. Maybe you meant to say there's always room for self-improvement along with self-acceptance. Another Seventeen article in that issue I found very suspicious: "Your Hottest Abs, Butt and Legs: Tone your body -fast." According to the conditions of this peace treaty, I should be happy I have a body at all. I should be-happy that my un-toned body can walk, talk and breathe. Until there are changes within the magazine itself, the contradicting messages of the publication renders this treaty shallow. Don't worry, though. I have a solution to save this worthwhile campaign. All Seventeen has to do to make this work is get rid of the makeup section, the clothes section, all the ads -except the "Got Milk?" ads because those are awesome -and change all the content of its magazine to mental health and fitness articles. And it should also do away with airbrushing because that doesn't promote self-acceptance. Got that, Seventeen? If you want to make this work, no fashion, makeup, models, ads and absolutely no airbrushing. But wait -wouldn't that mean no more Seventeen? Ah, peace at last.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Alligator harmed sorority's reputation I'm extremely disappointed with the publicity given to Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority in Wednesday's Alligator. Zeta was misrepresented and portrayed as an organization without integrity, class or pride in being a part of UF. As an invited guest at this particular date function, I can say it was a great success with the exception of those few incidents. I found it disappointing that the editorial board made the implication that "they thought they could get away with it just because they were Greek." I am not Greek, and I still think it's terrible the board would make such allegations. The fact that Zeta's national office is offering to pay for damages reflects the organization's common ideal of responsibility. And you're right, "everyone will remember the time its women trashed a restaurant," because you aided in stereotyping on Page 1 instead of highlighting how Zeta is trying to raise $30,000 for breast cancer. Jon-Erik Escribano 4AG Zeta event sounded like a fun night "Way to embarrass all of UF"? Seriously? Am I really reading this? A month after Andrew Meyer was Tasered by University Police Department officers, Zeta's date function is the universal embarrassment for UF? I had two thoughts when I read this story: I wish I had gone -it sounded like a good time. And it reminds me of every night I have ever worked at a bar downtown. The embarrassment to UF isn't the sorority that's already raised $20,000 this month for breast cancer research. It's the editorial board that can't find something more relevant to write about than drunken antics. Patrick Duffey acting president, Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity 0 E u Recent Alligator coverage lacks heart The Independent Florida Alligator should know its own history. The whole reason behind the "independent" in its title is because it could no longer associate itself with the university administration due to its commitment to investigative and unrelenting reporting on controversial issues in the 1960s and '70s. Lately, though, all it seems to produce are lazy and complacent news reports, such as the coverage of the "No War, No Warming" protest. Instead of a not-so-subtle attempt at infantilizing the anti-war movement, why not treat it as what it is -exciting, progressive political activism provoking student thought. The Alligator's role should be to foster discourse, not to make it cute by featuring 9year-olds rather than the people who spent endless hours planning the event. Criticize it if you want, but investigate the subject further. Yes, free speech is a great thing, but the Alligator must have forgotten the part about freedom of the press -and journalistic integrity at that. Come on, Alligator. You can -and have -done better. Until things improve, I propose a new slogan: We selectively and irresponsibly inform. You can decide -if you feel like it.

8, ALLIGATOR 0 THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2007 SFCC SFCC participates in sustainability day for first time By KATIE EMMETS Alligator Contributing Writer Gainesville mayor Pegeen Hanrahan and SFCC President Jackson Sasser discussed the possibility of a mass transit system for SFCC students Wednesday. The discussion was part of the first time SFCC participated in the annual Campus Sustainability Day, said Julie Garrett, a member of the Sustainable Santa Fe Committee. The committee is a group of faculty, staff and students who are trying to make SFCC a more sustainable campus, Garrett said. "Transit is a big issue because the Santa Fe students don't have the same opportunity as the UF students to ride the buses," Hanrahan said. Hanrahan said she and Sasser will work together to bring the issue of a mass transit system for SFCC to the state Legislature's higher education committee to get it approved. Other than a mass transit system, Sasser and Hanrahan discussed other ways for SFCC to have a more environmentally friendly campus, which included recycling and how sustainability could become a part of every curriculum at the college. They held a lunch on what a sustainable SFCC would look like in the S Building on the northwest campus. S D a n c e Theatre Santa Fe also performed a dance routine around camHanrahan pus with large spheres that represented the earth: Local businesses, nonprofit groups, government groups and SFCC's Model United Nations set tables up to inform the students and staff what to do to practice sustainability on the E Breezeway of the northwest campus. Mike Amish represented Indigo, a locally owned business located downtown. Amish said that Indigo is a green home and business supply store. He said Indigo sells things such as recycled trash bags, cleaning supplies, floors, countertops and shingles, all made from environmentally friendly parts. "We are trying to help change the way people build the homes and help them live healthy lives at the same time," Amish said. Ramesh Buch, land conservation program manager for Alachua County Forever, said that the group was started in 2000 to keep space in the county green and open. It is in the process of figuring out which will be preserved and which will be set up for recreational use. Rebecca Rogers, project manager of facilities and services for SFCC, said the day is a celebration of sustainability in higher education. Meyer appeared to sound 'elated' FDLE, from Page 1 that level of resistance warranted officers to restrain him, move him somewhere else, hold him to the ground or inflict pain to gain compliance. The report also stated that on the way to the jail, the police recorded Meyer's conversation without his knowledge, and Meyer told officers that they didn't do anything wrong. He also asked if cameras would be at the jail. While at jail, Meyer made two phone calls, which were recorded and reviewed for the investigation. The report states that he "appears to sound elated that the arrest has occurred and at one point, states that he is happy this has happened." Meyer spent the night in jail and was released around noon on Sept. 18. Griscti wrote that Meyer encourages the media to investigate the questions about voter disenfranchisement he posed to Kerry before he was arrested at the speech. The State Attorney's Office will decide whether the charges against Meyer are appropriate. If so, a court date will be scheduled. "We believe in crossing our T's and dotting our l's." Spencer Mann State Attorney's Office spokesman Spencer Mann, spokesman for the attorney's office, said the office would review the department's report and would consider using some of the same witnesses, he said. "We're still in the homework phase," Mann said. "We believe in crossing our T's and dotting our I's." Group plans energy projects SUSTAIN, from Page 1 being proactive. "I think it's a great idea," Allen said. "They should ask us to pay more. Fifty cents is nothing. We spend more on textbooks we never even use. The panel discussed how the money could be used. One of the highlighted projects is a new garage that will be built near the office of Transportation and Parking Services. The panel wants to equip the garage with solar cells so it will be completely solar-powered. The panel said it would also like to see a conversion of the Wastewater Treatment Plant to a renewable energy plant. "I want to see the money used the most effective way to make it go the farthest," Allen said. "Student involvement is key. I want to do something direct." On UF President Bernie Campus Machen also gave his annual sustainability report card to start off the day. One of the specific projects he was impressed with was the eco-garden on the roof of Rinker Hall, which helps control the building's internal temperature. Finance$ not adding up? 0000mad needed now!

Best of The Fest The Fest 6 takes over downtown this weekend BETH ROMANIK 0 AVENUE WRITER If it seems as though there are a lot more bearded, PBR-chugging 20-somethings in tight jeans roaming Gainesville today than usual, it's not your imagination. The sixth annual Fest is upon us. Hipsters,' punks and music aficionados of all types have descended on our fair town to see the more than 200 bands that signed up to pack eight of downtown's most popular music venues this weekend. If you're a visitor to Gainesvegas (or one of a surprising number of residents who haven't heard of The Fest's existence until now but want a part of it), tear these pages out and put them in the back pocket of your Levi's cutoffs. This is a guide to the best of The Fest. Best Bands to Keep an Eye Out For 5. Defiance, Ohio (Sunday, 4:05 p.m., 2nd Street Bakery) It's not every day you find a band with its roots in punk rock and a cello on its stage. The acoustic folk-punk band Defiance, Ohio pulls it off, though, and its enthusiastic show will have you singing and clapping along with the banjo and harmonica. 4. Planes Mistaken for Stars (Friday, 9:40 p.m., Common Grounds) It's true: Planes Mistaken For Stars announced in July that after a decade of swapping band members and changing genres, they decided to part ways. You should pay tribute to the posthardcore band formerly signed to Gainesville's very own No Idea Records. 3. Paint It Black (Saturday, midnight, Common Grounds) This Philly-based hardcore punk band's energetic, shoutsinging style is reminiscent of old-school bands gone by. It's no wonder, considering current and past members of Paint It Black were also involved in the influential punk bands Lifetime, Kid Dynamite, Good Riddance and None More Black. 2. Small Brown Bike (Sunday, 8 p.m., The Venue) Small Brown Bike's Fest show is the last of only five this year, a special reunion tour after a breakup in 2004. This could be your last chance to hear their melodic double vocals and '80s-like guitar riffs live, so take advantage of it. 4N 2 .. The Venue .......: 1982.

The band returns this weekend for Fest Six. 1. Lopan Takes Japan (Sunday, 7 p.m., The Venue) If history is any indicator, this band is actually another, more well-known Gainesville band that also possesses the initials LTJ, and it's always fun when they play their hometown. Just a hint. Best Bands Your 31-YearOld Brother Would Love to See 2nd Street Bakery .. I 5. Youth Brigade (Friday, 11:30 p.m., The Venue) Three brothers formed Youth Brigade in 1980, beginning the punk epidemic in L.A. They've broken up and reformed a number of times, but 2006 brought these punk legends back to touring. 4. Dillinger Four (Saturday, 8:30 p.m., The Venue) Chances are you know this band from a Fat Wreck Chords compilation, but they go back much further. Since 1994, they've put out five albums of their Americana brand of punk rock, and as Fest veterans, they'll definitely play their best crowdpleasers. 3. Avail (Saturday, 7:10 p.m., The Venue) Avail was formed in 1987, and although they've released almost a dozen albums, it was likely 2000's "One Wrench" that changed the lives of all of us middle-school punk wannabes. A live show lets Avail showcase their range of musical styles, from classic punk to more popfriendly punk to '70s-era rock In' roll. 2. Seaweed (Sunday, 9:20 p.m., The Venue) Seaweed was born around the same time as many of you freshmen, and the band quickly earned a reputation for its gritty punk music and energetic live shows. The influential band broke up about a decade later, but they reformed earlier this year and a new album is in the works. 1. Naked Raygun (Friday, half past midnight, The Venue) Formed in 1981, the Chicagobased Naked Raygun is considered one of the first post-punk bands in the U.S. They broke up a year later but reformed in 2006, bringing back their political lyrics and melodic hardcore style of music to stages.

The Civic Media Center Film Fest (Saturday and Sunday, noon to 4:30 p.m., Civic Media Center) The Civic Media Center will be showing seven documentaries, including a film about Iraq war veterans and a Noam Chomsky profile. 2. The Fest Flea Market (Friday and Saturday, noon to 5 p.m., University Hotel/Holiday Inn) This year, The Fest offers its first-ever flea market. According to The Fest organizers, 60 vendors will showcase their "label, distro, clothing company or black-market counterfeit Pogs" to anyone who'd care to come by and purchase unique crafts from independent designers. 1. The Fest Art Show (Thursday, 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., The Atlantic) This is another Fest first. The Atlantic's upstairs gallery will showcase artwork from nine different designers responsible for photos, album art and merchandise for many bands we know and love. Best Band Names Editor's Note: This section may not be exactly informative, but the title is self-explanatory. You should see these bands due to their names alone. 5. Witches With Dicks 4.

Will Matt & Kim's upbeat songs get stuck in your head? Yea, yeah. BETH ROMANIK 0 AVENUE W Nowadays, it seems too many ban and power struggles, too many albu status symbols and too many shows recitals. Enter Matt and Kim. The energetic power couple from Brooklyn breathes some fresh air into the pop-punk indie genre with their uninhibited, unselfconscious brand of music. Matt Johnson and Kim Schifino met at art school and, after dating a couple of years, decided to start messing around with the idea of RITER Consequently, they play more basements and lofts ds have fights than clubs, and everyone just laughs when a crowd ns are seen as surfer almost knocks the set over or someone rushes are treated as onstage to shove pizza in Kim's mouth.

"Not long after that we came back (to forming a band. Creatively, they decided on the band name Matt & Kim. "We were just sort of jamming, really," Matt said. "Kim naturally liked drumming, and I found this keyboard I thought would be cool to learn to play." And that's pretty much where they are now. Matt plays fuzzy notes on his keyboard and shouts lyrics exuberantly, while Kim bashes simple, toe-tapping time signatures on her drum kit and adds a background yell now and again. Rather than limiting the band, the fact that they utilize only two instruments (other than their voices) has just made them think more creatively, Matt said. "We have to make songs work, which can make cool things happen that you wouldn't expect to happen," he said. "It just makes you do things differently, which can be good. It gives you good surprises." Considering the couple is adorable and the band has no other members, it was inevitable that fans would draw comparisons between Matt & Kim and Mates of State. "We actually didn't hear about them until after our first couple of shows, after people told us, 'Hey, you're like this band, we think you'd like them,"' Matt confessed. "So we checked them out, and we like them, but I think Kim and I just come from a different place. We come from a more punk rock sort of background, and they." Matt hesitated, giving Kim a window in which to yell into the phone, "It's slow!" causing them both to laugh. "Slow" is definitely not a word to describe Matt or Kim, and definitely not the two of them together. Their live show sees them rolling out the infectious beats nonstop, grinning all the while. "I'd like to try to think of it like a party," Matt said of their concerts. "We like to have fun -what we don't want to do is have a recital. We want people to come and let loose." Florida) and did some-more shows, and they were all really awesome. The one in Gainesville was super fun, so we got revived on Florida." As for expectations for their show here Sunday, the first thing Matt thought of to say was, "Well, Kim is trying to collect every Rhode Island quarter ever made, so if people at the show want to bring her some, that would be very cool." She's got about 600 so far, and "she thinks she's going to have all of them," Matt said, before Kim interrupted from the background again, "I will have all of them!" Being showered with quarters is a perk that didn't occur to Matt & Kim when they started their band. "Bands should never go into it with any intention other than to have fun," Matt said. "Anything else that comes with it is the bonus." Catch them Sunday at 2nd Street Bakery at 6:05 p.m. U'ltcI -'-""" Matt & Kim play one of their trademark energetic sets at a concert in Brooklyn.

Battle of the band games: Guitar Hero III vs. Rock Band I love rock 'n' roll. I suck at playing the guitar. So you can imagine how happy I was when Harmonix Music Systems came out with their guitar simulation game, Guitar Hero, in 2005. College dorms haven't been the same since. A sequel and an expansion later, Guitar Hero is now one of the most played games on any university's campus, where everyone loves playing such classics as "Free Bird" by Lynyrd Skynyrd and "Sweet Child 0' Mine" by Guns N' Roses. Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock will be released Sunday. This time, they have a new developer, Neversoft (the makers of the Tony Hawk series), and they're poised to retake the video game industry. Unfortunately, they have considerable competition. Harmonix has teamed up with MTV to make Rock Band, a game they think will make Guitar Hero Ill look like a fourthgrade strings lesson. Rock Band, which comes out Nov. 23, will include the guitar peripheral just like the previous renditions of Guitar Hero did and just like Guitar Hero III will. Here's the kicker: It also includes bass, vocals and even drums to make the rest of the band. You and friends will form, name, dress, customize and play with a band that you create. You'll then sweep the nation, playing songs and gathering fans on your way to rock glory. You can play any of the four instruments and have the computer play the rest, or you can get your friends to fill in with you. While Guitar Hero II is touting a new battle mode, Rock Band promises to fulfill you and your musically challenged friends' dreams of making a band. The game will RYAN LEVICK 0 AVENUE WRITER Downloadable full-length albums and an interesting career mode make Rock Band all the more interesting.

Save it for the stage. include the guitar, drum kit and microphone, which includes pitch recognition technology, peripherals in-box. Of course, the song lineup is what really matters. Guitar Hero III has 73 confirmed titles to date, which allows it to have a few lesserknown tracks, while Rock Band relies on 40 mostly hit songs. The real difference is more in the downloadable content. Upon release, Harmonix has guaranteed new content for Rock Band available online each week that will often include complete albums such as "Who's Next" by The Who and "Nevermind" by Nirvana, while Guitar Hero Ill only has plans for individual track releases. It seems that you won't be able to play through career mode with bandmates over the Internet in Rock Band yet, but both games will include online competition. Rock Band has the potential to rock harder than Guitar Hero 11I.

20, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2007 UF.WOMEN'S BASKETBALL Freshman center Crawford adjusts to college game By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Staff Writer pkegler@alligator.org This sure isn't high school ball anymore. At least that much is clear to freshman center Ebonie Crawford after the first few weeks of practice with the UF women's basketball team. Her opposition in the paint will be fndifferent than it was during high school play in Atlanta. Now Crawford will be matched up against athletes just as big and just as talented. "I didn't really have too many girls who could guard me or I was getting double-teamed, tripleteamed a lot of times," she said. "That's the biggest difference coming in here. Now you have girls that are your height, girls that are your level." It will be quite a change as she adapts to competing against players like Tennessee's Candace Parker and LSU's Sylvia Fowles. A year ago, Crawford looked up to the pair. Now she'll take them on in the paint and compete with them for rebounds. Crawford knows she has to work on her low post game if she wants to excel in the paint. "In the (Southeastern Conference), the girls are faster, the girls are bigger, the girls are stronger," Crawford said. "The game is physical so you've got to get in the habit of posting up big, posting up strong. It's a different game. It's different from high school." She said the speed of the game is the biggest difference in the college game. "It's back and forth," Crawford said. "You have a shot clock now. You have to get used to working with a shot clock, running your plays, knowing that you don't have time to dribble all across the court." "That's the biggest difference coming in here. Now you have girls that are your height, girls that are your leave l. Ebonie Crawford UF freshman center Crawford and junior transfer Aneika Henry, both listed at 6 foot 3, became the tallest players on the Gators' roster from the moment they stepped on campus. Junior forward Marshae Dotson welcomes the post help. "We needed it," Dotson said. "It was me and [former UF forward Briana Phillips] that were probably the tallest people on the team (last season). It's a big help for us." UF's atmosphere influenced Crawford's decision to play in Gainesville. "That's one of the things I just loved," she said. "I got down here on my official visit, and I was just like, 'Oh I definitely want to come here."' The possibility of playing time early in her career didn't hurt either. The freshman knew that UF lacked height last season, and she looks forward to making a quick impact on the team. "I'm coming in now, working hard so that way I will get some playing time," she said. "I know that I will be called upon early, so I'm looking forward to it." Coach Amanda Butler said a lot of college-level adjustment was made during the summer. "When [the freshmen] got here on campus in July, we started them in the weight room and started them playing pick up with one another and getting a glimpse not just into the physical nature of ball at our level, but also the speed," Butler said. "That is going to be a huge adjustment for them. Being in shape .and the mental aspect of having to make quick mental transitions." It'll have to be a quick learning curve for Crawford as she'll likely be called on to log plenty of key minutes. The nonconference schedule will be crucial on-the-job training for Crawford. Dotson remembers what it's like when conference games roll around each spring. "As soon as we start SEC games it's like hitting the wall," Dotson said. "Every year when we get in conference it's a total difference." Versatile Gators share offensive, defensive responsibilities 0 UF FACES ARKANSAS IN FAYETTEVILLE TONIGHT AT 8. By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Writer Ashley Harris isn't claiming that the UF soccer team is as good as the Brazilian national team. It's just that for Harris, the easiest way to describe the Gators and their versatility is with a comparison to one of the world's best squads. "When you play Brazil, you can't just say, 'hey, we're going to mark one player,' becenise if you do that someone else is going to score," she said. "The thing with our team is you can't just say, 'we're going to mark Stacy (Bishop), or 'we're going to mark Ameera (Abdullah) or whoever,' because Shana (Hudson) or Daniela (Sanchez) will have opportunities opened up for them." Arkansas (8-8-1, 1-6-1 Southeastern Conference) will have to contend with UF's versatility tonight at 8 as the Gators (9-42, 5-2 SEC) travel to Fayetteville for a rare Thursday night match. UF coach Becky Burleigh prefers to call UF a "fluid" team. From top to bottom, Burleigh said, the Gators have the talent to move around and play different positions effectively, making them a harder team to defend and score against. "We like being able to bring our, defenders up on offense and have them be a threat to the opposing team," Burleigh said. "Being able to move people up and down like that makes it tough on both sides." Harris may fit this playing style best. After spending three years on defense, Burleigh decided that the Gators could use Harris' speed on offense and moved the senior to forward. The experiment paid off. One of UF's premier defenders has become one of its best offensive threats. Harris has scored six goals this season, tying Bishop, a preseason Harris All-SEC forward, for the team lead. Senior defender Hudson has also helped out on offense this season. She scored her second goal of the year during Sunday's 5-1 rout of Alabama. The Gators' fluidity also gives them an advantage on the defensive end. Burleigh has emphasized screening, or playing aggressive defense in the passing lanes, to make it more difficult for opposing defenders and midfielders to move the ball up to their forwards. "Denying the ball to the forwards puts teams at a huge disadvantage," defender Lauren Hyde said. "When they do get shot attempts, they're taking shots from up top instead of in the box, which makes it much harder to score." UF's screening has stymied opponents all season. The team has forced seven shutouts. "I think the defense is always underrated," Hyde said. "When you stop a team from scoring, that takes pressure off the offensive players, and they can be more aggressive." Sports Rehab Do You Want to Work With Athletes?

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 21 Forward Mitchell hopes to follow in Noah's footsteps By DANNY KLEIN Alligator Staff Writer dklein@aligator.org He may not have the crazy curls, lanky body or scrappy style of play, but Jonathan Mitchell is determined to become UF's next Joakim Noah. "Coach (Billy Donovan) hit me with the Joakim Noah story," Mitchell said. "We played the same kind of minutes, and he told me to just keep working hard, and for some reason I just took it to the heart and worked harder every day." Similar to the former Gators and current Chicago Bulls forward, Mitchell suffered through an unproductive first year. Mitchell averaged just 1.2 points in only 6.2 minutes per game. Noah contributed 3.5 points in 9.4 minutes in-the 2004-05 season. In each of their first years, Noah and Mitchell both failed to start a game or play more than two minutes total in the NCAA tournament. This is where the similarities end. Mitchell now has a mountain to climb if he ever wishes to cast a shadow as large as Noah's. At this point, Noah's legacy is cemented in the history books: a two-time national champion, MVP of the Final Four and a top10 NBA Draft selection. Mitchell is aware that the task ahead will be difficult but said he is doing all he can to reach his goals. "This summer I just took everything and worked hard everyday," he said. "Conditioning, dribbling, shooting, passing. I'm trying to be the best player and the most complete player that I can be. It was a real intense summer for me this year." Whether or not Mitchell will ever reach that point is hard to determine, but his talent is obvious. Mitchell averaged 19.5 points and 7.6 rebounds in his senior season at Mount Vernon High School (Mount Vernon, N.Y.) en route to being named New York's Mr. Basketball. While inhigh school, Mitchell looked up to another Chicago Bulls player -Ben Gordon. Gordon, a former University of Connecticut standout and national champion with the Huskies, also attended Mount Vernon High. Mitchell broke Gordon's all-time school scoring record during his senior season. While Mitchell's ability is there, Donovan still doesn't seem completely sold on the sophomore "I think that Jonathan Mitchell has worked hard, but there's also an internal competitiveness that I haven't seen out of [the sophomore class] yet," he said. "It's a different thing when you talk about a guy's will to win and when you go into a game to impact winning. I feel like guys in the past that we had on teams impacted winning." Donovan said Mitchell and his fellow sophomores Dan Werner and Marreese Speights have been up and Men's down so far in practice. Basketball Donovan is looking for consistency from his returning players, just four on a roster of 11. "I really haven't seen a different mind set, which for me is disappointing," Donovan said. "I just thought that mentally, in terms of the competitiveness, fatigue and fighting through being tired, those guys have been really inconsistent. No question the sophomore class has to be consistent everyday for us, and they haven't been up to this point." With seven freshmen on the roster, Mitchell now assumes a leadership role -something that might take some getting used to. "I'm just trying to do what I can, help out in any way," he said. "I try to teach the new guys what I know -to stress the little things, rebound and do 'what you have to do get the job done." Heading into the new season, Mitchell will feature a new look on the court. The former No. 23 has switched his number to 0, a change that means a lot to the sophomore. Nicole Safker / Alligator Staff Sophomore forward Jonathan Mitchell dribbles during a scrimmage at the Basketball Fan Appreciation Day on Sunday in the O'Connell Center. "I changed my number to No. 0 this year feel like the impossible is nothing. I feel like because I feel kind of like the Gilbert Arenas last year I didn't play too much, and I'm gostory," he said.

Sports THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25,2007 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org QB aims for better result against UF N STAFFORD STRUGGLED AGAINST THE GATORS LAST SEASON. By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Staff Writer nzaccardi@alligator.org Ask Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford what happened against UF last year, and he will answer bluntly. "I didn't play well at all," Stafford said. "I turned the ball over three times. We turned it over five as a team." Stafford completed 13 of 33 passes for 151 yards in an ugly 21-14 loss. He was sacked four times, threw two interceptions and lost a fumble. He laid one more egg in a loss to Kentucky the next week before finishing his season on perhaps the hottest streak of any passer in the country as unranked Georgia won three straight games against teams in the top 16. Stafford has taken his up-and-down freshman year, including the forgettable UF game, and used the experience to help him adjust to being a fullthme starter as a sophomore. He hopes his hard work will translate into a better performance as No. 20 Georgia (5-2, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) prepares to take on No. 9 UF (5-2, 3-2 SEC) on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. "You can learn a whole lot more by playing than you can just sitting on the sideline," Stafford said. "You can get out there and get game experience. I think it helped me progress this year and hopefully in the future." Georgia coach Mark Richt noticed Stafford's improvement from game to game as a freshman. He has seen early success this year and greater respect from his older teammates. "Being put into the leadership role the way he is, he has to take in things a little bit quicker than most people," senior safety Kelin Johnson said. "He's been put into the fire." Through seven games, Stafford has upped his completion percentage from 52.7 to 55.3 and his passing efficiency has risen from 109 to 122.

Holding the game in Jacksonville may be a fun yearly pilgrimage for some fans or a chance to catch up with old friends, but it holds little benefit beyond that. As a Jacksonville native, I loved having a major college football game in town each year, but the atmosphere is slowly killing a once-heated rivalry The neutral site just doesn't provide much of a spark to the Mike McCall game. McCall-in' It The stadium Like I See It gets loud before mmccal@amgator.org kickoffs or when it is announced that another Southeastern Conference foe has lost, and big plays are met with a dull roar from one side. in a conference chock-full of loud stadiums and hostile environments, this game lives up to its name and not much else -a cocktail party. The rivalry has also become much more civil because of the location. ft "I think it's more of a friendly rivalry," freshman defensive lineman Duke Lemmens said. Not that friendliness is a bad thing, but it takes away from the magnitude of the game and the rivalry. I witnessed just how hostile fans can be during this year's trip to LSU. Tigers' fans -young and old -don't hold back threats, liquids or cans from passers-by They certainly aren't model human beings -maybe the worst group of people I've ever seen -but a little hostility goes a long way inside the stadium and can impact a game. UF fans and players who made the trip will certainly remember how they were received in Baton Rouge, and bad memories provide fuel for a rivalry. Playing the game in Gainesville and Athens would lead to that wild environment.
