ELECTIONS 2008


City candidates to face off in Feb. runoff


Though the race for Gainesville City
Commission seats ended Tuesday, two candi-
dates now have to shift into overdrive for an
upcoming runoff election.
Bonnie Mott and Lauren Poe, candidates
for the commission's District 2 seat, will face
off again on Feb. 19.
Mott, a local real estate company owner,
won about 42 percent of the district's total


votes while Poe, an SFCC professor, won
about 35 percent. A third candidate, Bryan
Harman, won about 23 percent and will not be
on the runoff ballot.
Alachua County Supervisor of Elections
Pam Carpenter said all elections in which no
candidate gets more than 50 percent of the
total vote must result in a runoff.
Though Poe will be entering the second

viewpoints for voters."

round of voting at what seems like a disadvan-
tage, he said he doesn't think he will change
his positions or campaign strategy.


"Bonnie and I offer two distinctive view-
points for voters," he said.
Mott did not return phone messages asking
for her comments.
Only those voters in District 2, which en-
compasses parts of northwest Gainesville, will
be allowed to vote in the runoff. The district's
10 precincts will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

SG presidential hopeful selects running mates


* REILLY CHOOSES SG VETS.

By ILEANA MORALES

UF Student Senate President
Kevin Reilly chose his running
mates for the Student Government


spring elections, which are sched-
uled for Feb. 26 and Feb. 27.
Reilly, a political science senior,
will run for Student Body president
on the Gator Party ticket with Yooni
Yi, an exercise physiology junior, for
vice president and Paul Drayton, a
finance senior, for treasurer.
Reilly, who held open interviews


with students on Jan. 17 and 18 to
find running mates, said Yi and
Drayton were
6.Student the ones who
ov rnmOent "brought the
most to the
table."
Yi is Student Body President
Ryan Moseley's chief of staff and the


former president of the Gator Party.
"He saw someone that he could
trust, and I think that's an important
detail when looking for someone to
run with," Yi said of Reilly.
Drayton, Senate budget chair-
man, said his experience with fi-
nances for student organizations is
probably a top reason Reilly chose


him.
"Me as treasurer, I don't expect
any surprises," Drayton said. "It'd
be the most smooth transition in a
while because of my background."
The Gator Party executive ticket
doesn't have a final platform yet.

Police ID suspect


in library flashing

Witnesses have identified a man accused of mastur-
bating in the Education Library at Norman Hall, accord-
ing to a news release from the Police Department.
Police filed a sworn complaint against Gainesville
resident Gene Walker Moore, 41, on charges of exposure
of sexual organs and trespass after warning, according
to the UPD release.
However, police have not been able to 'arrest Moore.
On Jan. 23 around 2:30 p.m., two
female students were studying in the
library when they saw a man mastur-
bating, the release stated.
The women notified UPD, but by
the time officers arrived, the man had
fled.
The women were able to identify
-Moore Moore from a photo line-up devel-
oped by UPD investigators, accord-
ing to the release.
Police are still trying to find Moore, who was released
from the Alachua County Jail just three days before the
alleged incident occurred, according to a jail official.
Anyone who has seen Moore is urged to call UPD at
392-1111.
Police described Moore as a 5-foot-11-inch, 200-
pound man with a white goatee.

UF to hold global


warming teach-in
UF students, Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan and local
businesses will join forces today in an effort to boost global warm-
ing awareness with events from morning until night.
After an 11 a.m. fair on the Reitz Union North Lawn, a campus-
wide program called Focus The Gator Nation Teach-in will begin
at 3 p.m. in the Ustler Hall Atrium, said Laura Ruhl, UF graduate
student and one of the event's organizers.
Focus the Nation, a national initiative to pursue solutions to cli-
mate change, is the largest teach-in in U.S. history, according to the
program's Web site. More than 1,750 universities, K-
On 12 schools and businesses are involved nationwide.
CampuS "This has been a grassroots effort," Ruhl said. "It's
really remarkable that we've all joined together."
Following climate-change presentations from two UF profes-
sors, Mayor Hanrahan will discuss the role that leaders have in
sustainability, Ruhl said. Her appearance is scheduled for 4 p.m.
Gator Dining will provide refreshments during the event, Ruhl
added.
Following the leadership forum is a 6 p.m. energy debate. UF
faculty and experts from industries that produce solar, wind, etha-
nol and hydroelectric power will weigh the pros and cons of each
alternative energy source, said Rainer Shaw, UF wildlife ecology
and conservation senior and co-director of the teach-in.
"We really can't expect people to act on anything or to make a
change in their lives without knowing any of the real information
about it," Shaw said.

ELECTIONS 2008

Giuliani drops presidential bid, endorses McCain


By JESSICA PONN
Alligator Staff Writer
jponn@alligator.org

After failing to win a single cau-
cus or primary election, former New
York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has
officially bowed out of the race to
get the Repbulican nomination for
the White House.
In a televised press conference
Wednesday evening, Giuliani an-
nounced his withdrawal from the
race and endorsed "someone with
the will and perseverance to get
great goals accomplished" Sen.
John McCain from Arizona.
"He is an American hero, and


America could use heroes in the
White House," Giuliani said, as
McCain stood by his side.
Giuliani called the endorse-
ment "an easy choice" considering
his long-standing admiration for
McCain. Giuliani's announcement
came less than a week before 22
states are scheduled to hold pri-
maries- on Tuesday and a day after
finishing third in Florida
Daniel Smith, associate profes-
sor of political science at UF, said he
believes Giuliani chose Wednesday
to step down because his campaign
had run out of money and because
it was a strategic time to endorse
McCain.


Smith said Giuliani's "free fall"
in the polls was the result of a "terri-
ble" strategy in which he essentially
banked on win-
ning Florida and
ignored all of the
earlier elections.
Other can-
didates in prior
years have tried
a similar strategy
of avoiding early
Gluliani primary states,
Smith said, but with little success.
"You become a has-been very
quickly," he said.
Without the media attention
his opponents McCain and former


Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney
were able to attract, Giuliani was
quickly forgotten, Smith added.
"You're not going to meet the 10
million registered voters in a state
by hanging out here for a month,"
he said.
Giuliani's choice to endorse
McCain came as a surprise to few.
The two have been friends for years
and have been respectful to one an-
other throughout their campaigns.
Giuliani said having the oppor-
tunity to back McCain was a conso-
lation after his own losses.
He described McCain as a man
with tenacity, courage and the abil-
ity to lead America "at a time of


great peril."
Smith said he thinks Giuliani's
endorsement will definitely help
McCain's chances, as the former
mayor still has national appeal due
to his role in the Sept. 11 attacks.
Tommy Jardon, president of
Gators for Rudy Giuliani, said that
while he and his friends are disap-
pointed by Giuliani's loss, they
are looking forward to supporting
McCain because he is the consensus
candidate.
"We all do this because we
believe in a cause greater than our-
selves," Jardon said.
"We're all Republicans in the
end."


Edwards quits race after finishing third in Fla. primary


* EDWARDS YET TO ENDORSE
DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE.

By JESSICA PONN
Alligator Staff Writer
jponn@alligator.org

In the same city he announced his bid for
the Democratic nomination for the presidency
a little more than a year ago, John Edwards
took himself out of the running Wednesday
afternoon, less than a day after finishing third
in the Florida primary.
At a press conference in New Orleans,
Edwards, a former U.S. senator from North
Carolina, said he had spoken with Sens.
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton before his


speech and that his former opponents for the
party's bid pledged to make poverty allevia-
tion a central theme of their campaigns.
Though he did not endorse either candi-
date, Edwards said he was confident that they
would both focus on the goal of achieving
economic equality.
"America's hour of transformation is upon
us," Edwards said.
Kenneth Wald, a political science profes-
sor at UF, said he thinks Edwards chose
Wednesday to drop out because he didn't
have the resources to compete effectively on
Tuesday, when 22 states will hold elections.
Wald said Edwards also probably realized
that he was not going to be able to beat his op-
ponents.
"His fundamental problem was that he


was kind of crushed between the two jugger-
nauts of Hillary Clinton, who has spent years
preparing to run, and Senator Obama, who
came out of nowhere," Wald said.
Because those who
would have benefited from
his emphasis on economic
justice are the same people
who tend not to participate
in political life, Edwards
had a difficult time getting
votes, Wald said.
Edwards The question now is
who, if anyone, Edwards
will choose to support.
Smith said because Edwards' supporters
are so die-hard, they will probably take their
cues from the former senator.


Wald said even if Edwards does not make
an endorsement, Clinton stands to gain the
most.
Results from a late January poll by The
Associated Press and Yahoo! News confirm
his projection, showing that 40 percent of
Edwards' supporters said their second choice
was Clinton, while 25 percent said their sec-
ond choice was Obama.
Ben Cavataro, a first-year political science
student and Edwards devotee, said he has not
yet made up his mind about who he will sup-
port now. However, he said he is happy with
the remaining Democratic options.
"I think that Edwards won't become
president not because Edwards was weak, but
because the whole field was strong," Cavataro
said.

Editorial


E-fail

UF should outsource

e-mail system
The bold alert screeching from UF WebMail's login page
for the past week is not only a caution to students against
giving their e-mail password to anyone, it is also a bright-
red warning that the university's e-mail system is broken and
needs to be changed.
The recent "phishing" scam is a strong indication that the
university might be in over its head by trying to handle a sys-
tem more than 50,000 students and thousands of faculty and
staff rely on every day.
This latest problem presents more than just a minor inconve-
nience it could have put thousands at risk for identity theft.
So while various candidates running in Student Government
elections have made campaign promises to increase the capac-
ity and services available through WebMail over the years,
we're not content with waiting on those results.
Sam Miorelli, general counsel for the now-defunct Progress
Party, compared fixing WebMail to putting lipstick on a pig.
Despite the ridiculous metaphor, he was definitely on to some-
thing.
It would make more sense if UF Computing and Networking
Services would stop trying to patch up the major problems with
the current system and just give up on it altogether.
It's time to recognize when something just isn't working and
look for better solutions.
It's time for a major overhaul.
Last March, Arizona State University, which has about
65,000 students, made the switch to Google's Gmail and hasn't
looked back since.
The university was able to transition two of its full-time
engineers who had managed the previous mail-storage system
to other jobs, and the change will save the university $350,000
every year in storage, maintenance and personnel costs. Talk
about efficiency.
Trinity College in Dublin and Link6ping University in
Sweden have also switched to Google's system. And at
Northwestern University, students lobbied their administration
to make the change.
Not only will following this trend give UF a feasible way to
save the money it so desperately needs, but it will also greatly
improve e-mail performance capabilities for students and pro-
fessors.
Wouldn't it be nice if you didn't have to keep erasing e-mails
just because your GatorLink account doesn't have enough stor-
age?
Wouldn't it be nice if you didn't accidentally send the same
e-mail to your professor three times because the connection was
so bad?
If Gmail was implemented, students could save important
messages about financial aid, exams and internships without
the problem of clogging up their inboxes.
They could also take advantage of useful tools Gmail has
that GatorLink-could never offer.
The instant messaging, personalized -home pages and Web
page-creator services would make staying organized a whole
lot easier. A centralized calendar system offered through the
service would also make university announcements more ac-
cessible.
But, the most important reason for moving to the Google
system would be to reap the benefits from a safer, more secure
e-mail system with more layers of protection for sensitive per-
sonal information.
The billion-dollar company has a much larger staff at its
disposal to focus on e-mail issues, and it also has the resources
to keep security policies and measures such as anti-virus
patches and spam filters up to date.
And phishing scams and obnoxious warnings would be a
thing of the past.

grew up wandering around the neighborhood with a
notebook and a pencil in my hand. You couldn't tell the
color of my grandma's refrigerator without lifting up a
copy of something I wrote. I was writing complete stories
before I knew what a division sign looked like.
Since I can remember, I have always wanted to be a
writer.
How could I go on to major in anything else besides
English or journalism?
If you were me, would you hliave considered possibly pur-
suing a career in engineering? Or chemistry?
Well, state Sen. Jeremy Ring must not have taken these
things into consideration when suggesting a change to the
Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program requirements.
And I can't see how he would think Floridians would go
along with it.
I'm sure you've heard of him by now the guy who
wants to take money away from students majoring in fields
such as political science, art and history and give it to the en-
gineering, math, nursing and education crowd.
I totally support-giving students an incentive to study in
areas that our state and country is lacking, but please, find a
better way.
Many students, with very different majors, benefit from
the Bright Futures scholarships. For the 2006-2007 year alone,
more than 148,000 Florida students had some portion of their
tuition money paid for by the program, according to Bright
Futures statistics.
That's close to $350 million for the year.
And, about 84 percent of Florida students who were eli-
gible to receive one of the three levels of the award accepted
it and attended a Florida college or university.
Unless Sen. Ring wants this number to decline, he prob-
ably should not mess with the system.
And if I remember correctly, wasn't the scholarship
program enacted in 1997 with the sole purpose of keeping
Florida students in Florida schools?

If this potential change to the
system had been enacted four
years ago, I might have gone to the
University of Michigan like I had
originally planned.
But no, I chose UF because the
majority of my tuition would be
Rebecca covered and because of its excellent
Ganzak journalism program.
letters@alligator.org I wonder how many other
students can say they would have
changed their minds, as well.
I may be making a generalization here, but I don't think
we ask ourselves "Which major would be cheapest?" as we
scroll through the academics section of our hopeful univer-
sity.
What we do look for are things that interest us areas of
study that would make the best possible use of our talents.
While this issue may not pertain to me anymore because
I am a senior and just received my last disbursement of my
Bright Futures scholarship, I am thinking of my younger sib-
lings and future students.
I also think it is completely absurd and unfair to try and
sway someone's interest using money.
Take, for example, a high school graduate who is a tal-
ented artist. If this student decided to reduce his tuition by
majoring in math instead of art, it would be a complete waste
of his talents. Aperson should not feel punished or disadvan-
taged for having an innate ability to draw or write.
What I want to know is: what would be the senator's de-
termining factor for which majors would receive the scholar-
ship incentive and which would cost more?
Maybe he should take a step back and really listen to what
the people in Florida those he was elected to serve are
saying about his plan.

Letters to the Editor
Bill encourages better career choices
As a Ph.D. student in the College of
Engineering, I can completely understand
Sen. Jeremy Ring's stance on cultivating the
student culture toward education, sciences
and health care. Historically, there has always
been a higher demand for teachers, health care
employees and scientists in the United States
to support the country's infrastructure.
Interestingly enough, these careers are not
typically pursued enough due to several rea-
sons. Such jobs require specialized education,
larger amounts of responsibility and typically
are not perceived as glamorous. But, they do
offer job security and do pay relatively well.
As a student who has earned two degrees
at UF and is currently working on a third, I
can attest to how these fields are important.
However, fewer students seem to want to
study them because of an aversion to math-
ematics or the fact that these subjects are too
hard or too boring.
Also, most people I know with degrees out-
side education, math and science do not typi-
cally enter career paths that are related to their
degrees. These people later regret not taking
the education-, math- and science-based track
of study due to perceived difficulty.
One friend of mine has a degree in pho-
tography, yet she works as an employment
recruiter because many of the jobs available to
her upon graduation did not pay enough for


her to live independently.
Another friend who has a master's degree
in fine arts and works for a museum is supple-
menting his income as a soccer referee because
the museum doesn't pay enough.
While I feel that many of the degrees of-
fered by the various arts programs are valu-
able, many of them do not offer lucrative op-
portunities to the majority of their graduates
upon completion.
Christopher C. Ferraro
Ph.D. candidate, civil and coastal engineering

Proposed scholarship bill won't work
While Sen. Jeremy Ring's proposal to push
students into certain majors through fiscal in-
centives may look good on paper, his efforts
are not likely to pan out as expected. Even if
the bill were to pass, the truth is that science
and engineering students have too many dif-
ficult classes to be propelled solely by the extra
cash he has proposed.
No amount of money in the world can save
you from a statics quiz on Monday, a techni-
cal writing project on Tuesday and a medical
terminology exam on Wednesday
The only way to get through these majors
- or any major is to know you are doing
something you love, no matter what the state
wants.
Angeline Kahn

Ring's proposal not a 'pretty good deal'
UF students may be wary of the Bright
Futures bill, but incoming UF students should
be furious.
With no plan for students with an explor-
atory major or for those who change their
majors, this insufficient proposal is hardly a
good idea. UF, or any university for that mat-
ter, should never try to mainstream students
into fields of need.
It should be a safe haven for students to
take the time to identify who they really are
and what it is they really want to do in life.
Whether that turns out to be writing or
studying statistics, the cost of the education
remains the same.
Because of this equal cost of education,
adding extra funding to favored majors while
cutting the funding by twice as much for oth-
ers is not the answer.
To top it all off, Ring tries to smooth things
over with, "That's still a pretty good deal."
Anyone that has been accepted into this uni-
versity understands that the current deal is
far better than a "pretty good deal." For that
reason, Ring's comment is only an insult, not
compensation.

the


Decal increases should be consistent
I am very concerned about the recent
proposal for an increase in the cost.of scooter
decals.
How can UF justify charging more for a
scooter decal then a regular car decal? If four
scooters can fit in one car parking spot, then
a scooter decal should cost one-fourth the
amount of a car decal.
This leads me to believe there is an ulterior
motive behind the increase in the cost of the
decals. Seems like an excellent way to recoup a
portion of the $16 million UF needs.
Or maybe UF is trying to discourage stu-
dents from using scooters, but scooters are
vital for student life.
Getting 60 to 80 miles per gallon seems
very green to me.
They also help RTS by decreasing over-
crowding on buses.
To be able to park four scooters in the place
of one car, you would think they would be.of-
fering incentives for students who choose to
purchase scooters.
Obviously, there is something else going
on here that UF is not sharing with students
and faculty.
UF needs to keep the increase even and
fair across the board for all types of motor
vehicles.

Birth control patch causes greater risk of blood clots


* RISK OF CLOTS IS RELATIVELY
LOW FOR COLLEGE-AGED WOMEN.

By ALLISON CANDREVA
Alligator Contributing Writer
A recent study on the Ortho Evra contracep-
tive patch backed the findings of a 2006 study
that found women who use it are at a two-fold
greater risk for blood dots than women taking
the birth control pill, according to a Food and
Drug Administration news release.
Ortho Evra is a prescription patch that re-
leases two hormones, estrogen and progestin,
through the skin into the blood stream.


Women using the patch will be exposed to
about 60 percent more estrogen than if they
were using typical birth control pills because
the body processes the hormones in the patch
differently, according to the release.
The increased estrogen may increase the
risk of side effects, including blood dots.
The FDA approved an update to the patch's
label to include the results.
Blood clots are rare in young women,
said Dr. Andrew M. Kaunitz, associate chair-
man of UF's Department of Obstetrics and
Gynecology.
Blood dots could lead to pulmonary embo-
lism, which is when a fragment of a clot breaks
off and travels to the lungs, Kaunitz said in a


phone interview.
However, pregnancy and childbirth in-
crease the risk of blood clots more than birth
control, he said.
"Blood clots are not a common concern for
college-aged women," Kaunitz said.
UF Nurse Practitioner Phylis-
Public Craig said the Student Health
Health Care Center Women's Clinic was
wary of prescribing the patch
when the 2006 study was first released.
After further research, the clinic decided
the patch was an acceptable contraceptive.
Although Craig still uses Ortho Evra as a
method of birth control for her patients, she
does not prescribe it as much as she once did.


Craig said she would keep patients cur-
rently using the patch on it if they have no
risk factors. In addition, she would continue
to prescribe the patch to women if it is the best
option for them.
She said that the study on Ortho Evra
prompted a few students to ask about the
recent findings. But the only time the clinic
had to switch patients to another birth control
method was when the price of the patch went
up last year.
The cost increased from about $20 to $45
for patients with no health insurance, Craig
said.
"Women still use the patch," she said. "It's
a very good method and they enjoy using it."

to base it on students' ideas.
Reilly said he and his running mates would hold a forum
next week for students to tell them what changes they would
like to see on campus.
The Gator Party will choose candidates to run for the 47
open Senate seats by Wednesday after interviews are held on
Friday, Monday and Tuesday, he said.
A date for the platform forum will be
chosen after that process, he said.
Sam Miorelli, a UF mechanical engi-
neering junior and president of the Orange

pendent party, said the Gator Party may be
the first to have its ticket put together, but it
Reilly won't run unopposed.
Miorelli said he would not run for
president, nor did he know who would run on the Orange
and Blue ticket, but he said the party would be a "strong
contender."
He said Orange and Blue would probably announce more
details about its candidates and party plans today.
"I think everyone at the school would be pretty shocked
if Sam Miorelli was not putting together something to take
these people down," Miorelli said.

STEFANIE ROBERTS I
AVENUE WRITERS


Most working stiffs would
probably prefer to wind down
at the end of a rough week with
a Bud Light, not a non-alcoholic
brew that strengthens their joints
and makes their hair extra shiny.
But for frequenters of the Friday
night Yappy Hour at Sweet Paws
Bakery, Haile Village Center's
newest dog bakery and boutique,
the latter alternative is their bever-
age of choice.
This pooch hooch is one of
many refreshments Colleen
O'Fallon serves at her bakery's
weekly dog social hour. Her all-
natural homemade treats, the
bakery's chief selling point, are
also in hot demand.
Upwards of ten dogs ranging
in breed from Yorkshire terrier to
Goldendoodle attend Yappy Hour
every week, owners in tow. The
pups go crazy for O'Fallon's signa-
ture goodies, tails wagging so hard
they threaten to topple the shop's
bone-shaped display tables.
O'Fallon crumbled up cookies
in her fists and doled them out to
her hungry patrons.
"Most of them really love the
peanut buddies, snickerpoodle
cookies and bacon balls," she said.
"My favorites to make are the
'pupcakes' and brownies, just be-
cause I get to decorate them."
O'Fallon's pun-filled and play-
ful approach to baking is telling
of her youth. An animal lover
since childhood, the 25-year-old
studied Animal Sciences at UF
with the intention of becoming a
veterinarian.
Education and experience
taught her that commercial treats
weren't the best options for her
cocker spaniels, Abby and Parker.
"I didn't like feeding them
treats filled with preservatives,"
O'Fallon said.
So she began baking her own,
.giving the extras to friends and
clients at Millhopper Veterinary
Medical Center where she worked
as a vet technician.


As the demand for O'Fallon's
treats grew, she began selling on-
line and at local farmers' markets.
She left her job as a vet tech to open
Sweet Paws Bakery in September
2007.
Now the bakery's sole pro-
prietor and em-
ployee, she leaves
the register only to
attend classes for her th


master's degree in pub-
lic health.
O'Fallon bakes all of
Sweet Paws' edible mer-
chandise in her home kitchen,
which is stocked with dog-friendly
ingredients like unsweetened car-
ob, whole-wheat flour and chicken
bouillon.
Most of her recipes are original,
inspired in part by those passed on
to her by friends.
She even confesses to sampling
her creations.
"They're pretty bland because


they're made without sugar," she
said, "but that's why they're per-
fect for dogs or diabetics."
Opening a bakery just for dogs
is hardly a new concept.
Called "barkeries," these spe-
cialty shops are quickly cropping


I didn't like feeding
em treats filled with
preservatives. 9J
Colleen O'POllon
wveet Pavs BP)lery cbief

up all over the country. Even books
and Web sites are geared toward
culinary-inclined entrepreneurs
hoping to profit off of pet-lovers.
O'Fallon attributes their success
to an evolving pet culture.
"Some dogs are part of the fam-
ily, and the dogs become like kids,"
she said. "People spend money on
their dogs like they would on their
children."


In fact, shoppers sometimes
mistake Sweet Paws for a "hu-
man" bakery and boutique.
"People come in thinking it's
a children's place," O'Fallon said.
"They look at the shirts and say,
'Aw, this is so cute!' and I have
to tell them, 'Oh, it's actually for
a dog.'"
The confusion is a testament
to O'Fallon's tasteful, low-key
approach to canine com-
merce.
Unlike the bustling
pet metropolis that is
PetSmart, Sweet Paws
is a tiny, tucked-away gem. With
polka-dotted.dog beds in the cor-
ners and framed puppy pictures
on the walls, the shop feels more
like a cozy living room that hap-
pens to be well-supplied with dog
treats and accessories than a place
of business.
O'Fallon definitely knows her
market. She lines the shelves with


collars and doggy dresses designed
to imitate popular patterns and lo-
gos by Vera Bradley and Lacoste.
There are even T-shirts and toys
made from organic fabrics and
natural dyes for environmentally-
conscious pups.-
And what would an indepen-
dently-owned Gainesville shop be
without the requisite Gators gear?
Sweet Paws boasts an impressive
array of miniature Gators jerseys,
orange-and-blue scarves and
tailgate baskets for four-legged
football fans.
Regular customers often come
to the store decked out in Sweet
Paws accouterment.
Customer Alex Meador's cock-
er spaniel Marley sometimes at-
tends Yappy Hour sporting a shirt
that reads "Heartbreaker."
"He gets really excited when
we put it on him," Meador said.
"He knows it means we're coming
here."

for Jamba juice


surrogate

ADRIAN RUHI
AVENUE WRITER

My mouth first experienced the orgasmic experience
of Jamba Juice on a hot summer night at the Disneyland
Resort in California.
The national chain of smoothie restaurants, which
does for the world of smoothies what Starbucks does for
coffee, has become a staple of any visit I make anywhere
outside of Gainesville.
Yet with the seemingly millions of smoothie establish-
ments in Gainesville, the mack-daddy has yet to arrive in
our beloved college town. Perhaps Jamba Juice is afraid
it will put the seemingly millions of smoothie establish-
ments out of business.
Because of my insatiable appetite for Jamba's Citrus
Squeeze, a creamy combination of strawberries, bananas,
orange and pineapple juices, and orange sherbet, I set out
to find a suitable replacement near UF.

Freshens Smoothie Company Reitz Union, UF
The Orange Sunrise, a blend of OJ, sorbet, strawberry,
banana and pineapple, is the closest in spirit to Jamba's
Citrus Squeeze. Unfortunately, it tasted like a synthetic,
syrupy orange slushy, and the strawberry and banana
flavors were virtually non-existent.

Planet Smoothie -1620 W. University Ave.
The Mediterranean Monster, a mix of strawberry, ba-
nana and orange juice, was monstrous, but because ice
made up more than half of the smoothie, the result was a
watery blend of not-quite-fresh fruit.

Tropical Smoothie Caf6 3345 SW 34 Street
The Toucan Delight was refreshing. The base ingredi-
ents of orange, strawberry and banana were consistent
with the previous smoothies, yet the result was almost
glorious: a thick and extremely creamy beverage, with
sufficient fruit chunks for extra flavor.

In the end, no smoothie I've tried in or outside of
Gainesville can hang with Jamba Juice's flavorful concoc-
tions.
For a quick fix, Tropical Smoothie Caf6e hits the spot
enough to tide you over until your next Citrus Squeeze.

Scarves spruce up simple outfits


VANESSA DIMAGGIO I
AVENUE WRITER
There was once a time when scarves were just
a cozy way to bundle up and keep your neck from
freezing.
Those days are long gone.
Not only are scarves a cute way to keep warm, but
they have also become one of the trendiest accessories
of the season.
Scarves have the power to transform an entire out-
fit from frumpy to fashionable if you wear them the
right way.
One of the most stylish scarves for winter is the pa-
shmina scarf, an extra-long piece of fabric made from
a fine-woolen cloth that can be worn as a shawl, stole
or sarong.
It's an incredibly versatile piece that's all about the
way you tie it.
The popular trend among celebrities is to tie it in a
noose wrap, fold the fabric lengthwise and then along
its width, and finally to pull the open end through the
folded loop while placing it around the neck.
This style looks chic paired with a peacoat and
boots.


The fellas can wear pashmina scarves too.
Don't shy away from them because of the fancy
name, guys.
Pashminas are simple, warm and have been sport-
ed by the likes of Tom Cruise and David Beckham, two
very stylish men.
But don't limit yourself to the winter. You can wear
scarves when it's hot out too.
Try something in a lightweight material suchas silk
or cotton.
You can wrap it loosely around your neck or leave
it dangling at your sides for a casual, bohemian look.
A popular scarf right now among celebrities like
Jessica Alba, Nicole Richie and Drew Barrymore is the
Sir Alistair Rai karma scarf.
This scarf is printed in hand-painted Hindu
and Buddhist prayer with mantras such as "Love,"
"Karma" and "Peace" embroidered into the bottom.
Be careful of breaking the bank, though, as this
trend retails for about $115.
A colorful scarf can take a white T-shirt and jeans
from plain to chic in seconds flat.
Try adding the simple piece to any outfit for an
instant style boost.

It is truly one of popular music's
finest examples of irony that a duo
so notoriously prone to hyperactiv-
ity produces music only for those
with the most enduring attention
spans.
Once again, The Mars Volta,
with "The Bedlam in Goliath,"
unleash a collection best suited for
two crowds: prog junkies and the
utterly comatose.
Nothing about Omar Rodriguez-
Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala
appeals to concision.
From their Afros to their sur-
names, to their' songs,, length
proves a uniting theme. "Bedlam"
is no exception.
In the age of the three-minute


iTunes single,
the band de-
fiantly contin-
ues to abuse
the compact '
disc's run
time. l
But give
two significant talents 80 minutes
of free space, and you're bound to"
get something worthwhile.
"Metatron," with its shout-along
chorus and frenzied drumming,
would make a perfect single if ra-
dio stations could play it without
running into a commercial break.
The Caribbean thrash metal of
"Ouroborous" fits in the "what
if we tried this..." category, but
mostly to positive results.
The song's meandering coda,


though, shows what happens
when you let a studio geek turn all
the shiny knobs.
"Goliath" gets the formula just
right.
An absolute monster of a song,
it justifies every second of its ex-
tended duration.
Furious soloing impresses, but
it's Zavala's air-raid siren vocals
that particularly stand out.
Grieving wolves don't howl like
this.
The rest proves a muddled af-
fair, blending blistering sections
with aimless doodling.
Certainly, "Bedlam" has plenty
of moments though.
Too bad they take a straight-
jacket and a bottle of Ritalin to
appreciate.

Aqa Teen' DVDs occasionally funny, exvdtras not at all

'Aqua Teen' DVDs occasionally funny, extras not at all


DANNY DjELJOSEVIC I AVENUE WRITER
When Adult Swim first aired, the premiere
episode of "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" proved
to be the worst of the lineup. Though it is now
in its fifth season on Cartoon Network and has
proven to be hilariously surreal, the quality of
the show is still sometimes reminiscent of its
rocky beginning.
The recently released Volime Five DVD
has episodes that are examples of the show's
improvements and examples of its pitfalls.
For those of you who have never smoked
pot before: "Aqua Teen" revolves around
Master Shake, a talking milkshake, Frylock,
a talking box of french fries and Meatwad,
a talking meat wad. The show follows their
contact with various equally bizarre creatures,
not to mention their neighbor Carl, a talking
New Yorker.
Only a few episodes in the set are good. The


best one, "Ezekiel," recalls the classic "Aqua
Teen" formula of a weirdo creature irritating
the characters, this time in the form of Shake's
son, voiced by Patton Oswalt, whose comedy
albums I recommend you buy instead of this
DVD set. Equally good is "Hand Banana,"
wherein Meatwad and Frylock make a dog us-
ing the DNA from Shake's hand. Then there's
the daring "Boost Mobile" episode, which is a
wonderfully self-aware 10-minute advertise-
ment for the cellular company.
When the show fails, however, it fails in a
big way. There's an episode exclusively about
Carl that completely falls flat to the point of
tedium. Then there's the obligatory ironic clip
show episode that's completely nonsensical
in the bad way. We can't forget the one
where Frylock has cancer, which is kind of
unsettling (again, in the bad way), despite a
hilarious cameo appearance by party rocker
Andrew WK.


Worst of all Aq= Teen Hun arce.
is the two-part
episode where
Shake shows de-
leted scenes from
the movie. It's
basically the aver-
age "Aqua Teen"
episode padded
with behind-the-
scenes footage of
Shake.
The special
features of the
DVD are surely a practical joke being played
on the audience. The biggest offender is the
"ATHF Movie Premiere with Space Ghost,"
which features Space Ghost voice actor George
Lowe in a "Space Ghost" costume, interview-
ing the cast, crew and assorted Adult Swim
personalities at the premiere of the "Aqua


Teen" movie for 30 minutes.
Lowe clearly has no pre-written material
to work with, and nobody he talks to makes
an effort to be entertaining or even interesting.
Lowe himself comes off as a sad imitation of
Fred Willard, whom I would rather be watch-
ing. The remaining special features include
patience-taxing promos, a music video, and
a surprisingly unfunny vintage "Space Ghost
Coast to Coast" episode.
The two legitimately good special features
on the DVD both feature behind-the-scenes
footage: "Tera Patrick Eats a Hot Dog" has a
casually-dressed pom star eating a hot dog
while doing her lines, and "Granny Takes
Her Top Off" depicts the recording session of
someone's grandmother voicing a bit part for
the show. The "Granny" bit in particular was
pretty funny, and shows what I'd rather have
on a DVD instead of half-baked attempts at
humor that wouldn't fit into the show.

The Avenue takes on: tattoos


KIMBERLY FULSCHER 0
AVENUE WRITER
Oh, it would hurt.
But it would be worth it.
To the tune of buzzing needles, I
opened the door of Bodytech Tattooing
and Piercing. The safe sounds of West
University Avenue cars passing,
music playing and horns honking
- disappeared and reality set in.
I was about to make a possibly pain-
ful commitment to have something
permanently stamped onto my body.
My entourage, comprised of my
roommate Sarah, my friend Katie
and my significant other, Luis, fol-
lowed me into the lobby. I didn't
hear screaming from those who
were getting holes torn through their
skin or ink drilled into their hides.
Maybe this was a good sign.
I gulped and told the employee
behind the front counter that I
had an appointment for 2 p.m.
At about 2:15 p.m., Alex Gama was
ready for me. I climbed onto a den-
tist chair-like contraption. A woman
lay on her belly on a chair across
the room while a tattoo artist carved
away at her shoulder blade. I blinked
and tried to pay attention as Alex out-
lined the sterilization process to me.
"I'll tell you one thing," Alex said

as he carefully laid the stencil
on my ankle. "This is the clean-
est place I've ever been to."
He moved to Gainesville from
Hawaii, and he informed me that
he didn't use a numbing chemi-
cal when tattooing his clientele.
"Does anyone freak out dur-
ing their first time?" I asked.
"Of course," Alex. -


replied. "Some cry, Some cry
some throw up -others
others faint. You're ot
not chickening out chickening out
on me, are you?" Alex(
As his needle tattoo
drew closer to the
spot, I thought
of the story behind my tattoo.
My favorite book, "East of Eden,"
is about overcoming life's obstacles
and ruling over sin. The ability to dis-
cover inner strength is encompassed
within one word that is central to
the book and is something God said
to Cain in the Bible "timshel."
Timshel, or "thou mayest," means I
may do anything, I may defeat every
obstacle and I may control my own
destiny. But could I have that permis-
sive phrase, spelled out in bold, black
Hebrew letters, carved into my skin?
I was shaking as Alex's
needle began to break through


my skin and, yes, it hurt.
I clutched Luis' hand the whole time,
eyes wide and mind focused on the
pain that came and went.
Take a needlepoint pen or a sharp-
ened pencil and draw a deep line onto
your leg. Scratch a patch of sunburned
skin really hard. Or get a tattoo they
all feel about the same.
It was painful for
, some throw up a few moments here
faint. You're not and there, but noth-
faint.Yourenot ing to cry about.
on me, are you? In the following
5ama days, the healing
artist process hurt more
JJ than getting the
tattoo.
Hardest yet was the process of get-
ting used to the tattoo, and letting my
parents know sorry, Mom and Dad!
If you decide to get a tattoo, I
advise planning the design and then
thinking about it for a long time. I
thought about this particular tattoo
for almost three years though.
Ask a lot of questions about
the sterilization process "and ask to
watch the tattoo artist remove the
needle from the packaging. The pain
level increases at different parts of the
body, so ask questions about that too.
Think you can't do it?
Timshel.

UF looks to reclaim home court against Vanderbilt


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

A chance for redemption.
That's what the Gators (14-6, 3-2
Southeastern Conference) will hope
for when they host Vanderbilt (14-6,
3-2 SEC) Thursday at 7 in the begin-
ning of a three-game home stretch.
A week ago, UF lost by 27 points
to rival Georgia in front of the largest
non-doubleheader crowd to pack
the O'Connell Center this season.
Though the Gators rebounded
with a win at South Carolina, now
they want to get a big win in front of
their home supporters Thursday.
"Hopefully we'll still have our
fans there to support us," UF for-
ward Marshae Dotson said. "We're
pretty disappointed about the loss to
Georgia here at home. Hopefully, we
can bounce back from there and pull
out the 'W.'"
If UF does get a victory, Dotson
will likely play a big part, matching
up against Vanderbilt's key post
players, Christina Wirth and Liz
Sherwood.


The 6-foot-1 Wirth leads the
Commodores with 13.2 points per
game and makes 48.6 percent of her
. shots from the field, including 42.3
percent from behind the arc.
The junior plays a team-high 31.3
minutes per game but has more than
capable help should she need a rest.
Sherwood, a 6-foot-4 senior av-
eraging 12.7 points per game, leads
the nation in field goal percentage
with a mark of
69.5 percent.
Though
Sherwood started
Women' 13 games during
the nonconference
Basketball schedule, she re-
verted to being the
first substitute off the bench for SEC
play. She has excelled in such a role
throughout her career, having been
named the SEC Sixth Woman of the
Year for the last two years.
The Commodores cause an in-
teresting problem for opponents,
as they rank high in the SEC in both
field goal percentage (first at 48.2
percent) and defensive field goal
percentage (second at 36.3 percent).

play better at home Thursday against the Commodores in their first home game since the blowout.


Gators add four-star LB Green


By RYAN LEVICK
Alligator Writer

UF fans went to bed Tuesday night with
hopes of the Gators adding to their 2008 re-
cruiting class.
The fans were not disappointed.
Four-star linebacker prospect William
Green, from Hoover (Ala.) Spain Park, con-
firmed late Tuesday night what UF coaches
had known for at least a week.
"A guy from [Scout.com] called me
[Tuesday night], and I told him that I was
[committing to UF]," Green said. "But I had
told Coach [Urban] Meyer last weekend."
Scout.com rates Green as the nation's No.
7 strong-side linebacker, but many feel his 6-
foot-5,208-pound frame will be better utilized
at defensive end.
Scout.com recruiting analyst Andrew
Bone said Green has the potential to be ef-
fective at the defensive end position despite
being undersized.
"Before he can play defensive end, he's
going to need to gain a lot of weight," Bone
said. "But he has the potential to be someone


like [former UF and current Denver Broncos
defensive end] Jarvis Moss."
What Green can't do with his size, he will
have to do with his speed.
"He has the quickest step of a recruit that
I've ever scouted," Bone said. "His potential
is sky high."
"A lot of players go into college
football not realizing how hard
they'll have to work in order to play.
"[Green] doesn't have to fix his
work ethic."
John Grass
former Spain Park coach

Bone said Green may not play a big role
next year but should make more of an impact
his sophomore year.
Former Spain Park coach John Grass said
it's not Green's athletic ability that will set
him apart, but his determination to be the

Speights would actually play like he

I did not know that Marreese

Apparently, I didn't know much
about Mo'. After the Kentucky win,
I was still doubtful.Then the South
Carolina game came, and Speights
played even better. Now, after
Sunday's demolition of Vanderbilt,
I'm convinced.
Holy moly, Marreese Speights is
an actual, legitimate, very good, verg-
ing on great center.
Who knew?
Nick Calathes has been great and
is deserving of all the accolades. Dan
Werner has found a niche and is ex-
celling. Jai Lucas is still running the


offense well enough. But Speights
has given the Gators something they
didn't have at the beginning of this
season an identity inside.

UF preps for Vandy's zone

-W HOOPS, from page 22
They also rank third in the league in scoring margin, scoring an
average of 15.7 more points per game than their opponents.
Part of UF's struggles against Georgia last week came from
its inability to get anything going against the Bulldogs' aggres-
sive defense.
The Commodores will look to give the
Gators similar fits with their patented zone
defense, which they have had success with
for years, UF coach Amanda Butler said.
Vanderbilt does start two freshmen, so
UF will try and rile the young team play-
ing on the road. It has been an inconsistent
Brooks season for the Commodores, who have
Knocked off two ranked teams (Georgia and
Duke, both at home), but their resume also contains a loss at
Indiana State and a home defeat to Colorado.
With nine league games remaining and No. 8 LSU coming
to town Sunday, the Gators know they still need to try and get
every win they can to stay in NCAA Tournament contention.
"It gives us a chance to prove that we are a good team de-
spite the fact we lost to Georgia," junior guard Sha Brooks said.
"We can pick up the intensity, pick up the defense and pick up
the slack where we left off last time we played at home."

on the football field.

"sellout" and "Momma's bby" for staying close to
home) still managed 15 points and eight rebounds in
the matchup, more than respectable numbers.
But do you remember Patterson making a big
impact on the game? I don't. Oh, and the 5-of-14
shooting makes some of Vanderbilt's players look like
sharpshooters.
At the beginning of the semester, I said this team
was playing like an NIT team. Now they're playing
like a Sweet 16 team.
With the way Speights was playing before these
last three games, I would have forfeited a draft pick
rather than nab Speights if I were an NBA team. Now
he's a potential steal.
If Speights keeps this up, I wouldn't want to face


sure to stay in state. Green was no
exception, with offers coming from
Alabama.
"There was a lot of pressure
to stay in state from fans." Green
said. "But my family and coaches
were really cool about me [going
to UF]."

ing until a letter of intent is signed on

the Gators come March. Earlier in the season, UF
would have had to pray that all its shooters had career
nights just to have a chance at an upset in postseason
play. Now it's not that easy for other teams. Bigger,
stronger teams.will gang up on Speights, but UF has
plenty of shooters he can kick it out to. The key is if
Speights can last long enough to take a beating.
If his conditioning continues to improve and he
doesn't make stupid mistakes, the Gators will actu-
ally make a mini-run come tourney time.
Speights was slammed for his lack of intensity and
conditioning early in the season he looked like he
could barely jog from Gator Corner to the O'Dome
without stopping but he has only been playing
organized basketball since his sophomore year in
high school.
At this rate, he'll soon see Al Horford and Joakim
Noah two to four times a year in an NBA uniform.
