Officials lower



UF gym fees


* SUMMER B FEES CUT
FROM $50 TO $20.

By SARAH JONES
Alligator Contributing Writer

New gym membership fees
for UF students not enrolled in
summer B classes have lost a
little of their initial sting.
The fee was originally $50
for all non-enrolled students
but was lowered to $20 for stu-
dents who took classes during
summer A or spring and are
enrolled for fall classes.
The new membership
policy, which was announced
in June, prohibits anyone who
is not currently enrolled in
classes from using on-campus
gym facilities without a mem-
bership.
The $50 gym membership
fee is still in effect, however,
for students who won't be


returning for classes the se-
mester following their mem-
bership purchase.
Student Body President
Kevin Reilly said when he
learned about the plan to
charge non-enrolled students
$50, it struck him and other
students as unfair.
"I had

County offers several celebration options for the 4th


* CITY CELEBRATES THE 3RD. leap, swirl and flash of fireworks
launched against the dark Florida


By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Writer

Thousands of people will
crowd together today and Friday,
craning their necks to catch every


sky.
Residents can choose how and
where to celebrate Independence
Day at any of the several festivals
in cities across Alachua County.
In Gainesville, residents can't
wait another day to see the fiery


show and, in the city's tradition,
they're celebrating the Fourth on
the third.
LOCal Fireworks in
NeWS Gainesville have
been set off a
day early for 18 years, said
Sue Wagner, director of com-
munications at WUFT-TV/DT,


who is coordinating the city's
Independence Day events. The
custom began because of a con-
flicting Fourth of July event years
ago and hasn't changed since.
Wagner said up to 20,000
people usually show up to watch
the fireworks, and many specta-
tors sit near Lake Alice to see the


reflections on the water.
The City of Alachua, like most
U.S. cities, is celebrating the
Fourth of July on Friday.
Traci Cain, the chairwoman
of Alachua's Fourth of July com-
mittee, said she and a group of

Atlanta woman dies after Ginnie Springs diving accident


A woman died Monday morning at
Shands at UF after she was found unre-
sponsive at Ginnie Springs June 14.
Shannon Lewis, a 20-year-old student
from Atlanta, went cave diving at the
springs with two other divers, said Deputy
Tracy Taylor with the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office.
She was having trouble equalizing the
pressure in her ears, and her friends took


her back to the entrance of the cave, which
was more shallow at 20 feet deep, Taylor
said.
The two divers went back in the cave,
leaving her at the entrance where she was
found- unresponsive by a passing diver
who noticed her face looking up at him,
he said.
When two passing divers got her back to
the platform, she wasn't breathing, her lips


"She had a little too much of a
fight on her hands."

were blue, and she had no pulse.
"What happened down there, we still
don't really know," Taylor said.


A doctor from Tampa, a respiratory
therapist, a Gainesville EMT and two men
with CPR training helped her before she
was flown to Shands.
Taylor has stayed in touch with Lewis'
family throughout the incident.
"She had a little too much of a fight on
her hands, and her body couldn't take it,"
Taylor said.

A UF alumnus from Miami was stopped by a
UPD officer while driving on U.S. Highway 301
in Waldo on June 26.
After slowing down for the Waldo speed trap,
Patrick McGrath said he passed a line of about 12
cars pulled over by police and was then stopped
himself.
Capt. Jeff Holcomb, UPD spokesman, said the
stop was not part of a University Police patrol but
a product of the department's mutual-aid agree-,
ment with the Alachua County Sheriff's Office,
which the department is citing to continue off-
campus stops since the court's ruling.
University Police teamed up with the sheriff's
office to promote the statewide "Move Over
Florida!" campaign, Holcomb said. Warnings
and tickets were given out to advertise the law,
which requires motorists to switch lanes when
emergency vehicles are on the roadside or slow

"It's kind of embarrassing to have university

this was not a campaign; it was just a motorists'
trap."
Holcomb said the University Police assist
the sheriff's office with traffic enforcement if it
is short on patrols and to demonstrate "unifor-
mity" among local law enforcement agencies.
He said he also saw UPD officers working for
the campaign on Interstate 75.
"The mutual-aid agreement with the sheriff's
office doesn't mean officers are doing radar sur-
veillance in Micanopy," Holcomb said.


Bostick details emerge


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Staff Writer
adudash@alligator.org
A woman has claimed that a
former Gainesville Police officer
coerced and intimidated her into
having sex with him.
Gainesville Police received the
complaint on May .7, and John
Robert Bostick, 34, resigned May 9
from the department at the start of
the internal investigation.
The woman wrote in a "victim
statement" that Bostick was making
her have sex with him to keep him
from "messing with" her family
and allowing her to drive with an
invalid driver's license, according
to the police supplement report.
The woman said that Bostick had
called her multiple times, though
she did not answer the phone.
The woman told police that she
met Bostick at a downtown night-


club where she works.
While on patrol, he compli-
mented her on her looks and asked
for her personal information, the
report stated.
Bostick also shared confidential
police information with the woman
regarding her father's arrest.
In a separate in-
Local cident, Bostick told
News the woman that her
friend shouldn't
worry about his charges because
Bostick forgot to write the citation,
according to the report.
The alleged sexual battery
occurred outside of Gainesville
Police jurisdiction, and the Alachua
County Sheriff's Office is investi-
gating.
Spencer Mann, State Attorney's
Office spokesman, said the attor-
ney's office is still deciding whether
Bostick could be prosecuted for a
sexual battery charge.

SFC

Santa Fe College begins pilot year with name change


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Staff Writer

Since the Florida College System law
went into effect July 1, SFCC is going by its
new name, "Santa Fe College."
The bill permits a community college
to change its name and use "college" if it
has been granted the authority to award
bachelor's degrees, according to the'Florida
Senate Web site.
SFC will offer two bachelor's degrees,
clinical laboratory science and health ser-


vices management, in fall 2009.
SFC has been offering four-year degrees
in collaboration with other universities and
colleges, including Saint Leo University, for
several years, said SFC spokesman Larry
Keen.
All of Florida's 28 community colleges
now have the option of offering bachelor's
degrees.
SFC will go through a "pilot year" along
with other colleges during which the state
will determine whether the college would
benefit from offering four-year degrees,


"We're going to be very slow on
how we're going to implement the
actual physical brand change."
Larry Keen
SF spokesman

Keen said.
The state Legislature also asked nine
community colleges to work on figuring
out ways to fund the new education sys-
tem, said Anne Kress, SFC provost and vice


president.
For now, the college will simply change
its name on its Web site links, Kress said.
The new domain name will be
www.sfcollege.edu.
Aside from online changes, Kress said
college officials aren't in a rush to change
tangible items like stationery and signs.
"We're going to be very slow on how
we're going to implement the actual physi-
cal brand change," Keen said.
Alligator Writer Christopher Myers con-
tributed to this report.


Feedback prompts minor changes to RTS bus-tracking site


* RTS OFFICIALS CHOSE A
SIMPLIFIED DOMAIN NAME.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer

While UF's new bus-tracking
system has been running smoothly
since its June 9 launch, several
changes have been made in re-
sponse to student feedback.
First, additional street names
have been added to the map on The
Gator Locator, which lets students
view the location of certain RTS


buses online.
In addition, the Web site
domain name has been simpli-
fied from ufl.transloc-inc.com to
gpsrts.ufl.edu. Users can also log on
to www.gator-locator.com to view
the map thanks to Kyle Huey, a UF
student senator who purchased the
domain name.
Regardless of the address, Bob
Miller, UF's associate vice president
of business affairs, said people ap-
pear to be flocking to the bus track-
ing Web site.
The online map that displays the


location of the buses was accessed
18,000 times within the first ten days
it was launched, Miller said.
People have also been sending
comments through the feedback
option on the site,
LF he said.
Projects Much of the
feedback has been
positive.
"AMAZING! What a great idea!"
stated one response. "This is the best
thing ever," read another.
While compliments on the
project have been plentiful, users


have also posted suggestions for
improvements to the site.
Several people who left online
comments said they wanted route
43, which goes to Santa Fe College,
to be tracked. Miller said the route
wouldn't be added because, un-
like 50 other buses in the system, it
doesn't go to UE.
A few people also wrote that they
would like more dots, which cur-
rently identify major bus stops, to
be placed on the map. Users said in-
creasing the number of dots would
help everyone see where the buses


are in relation to all stops, not just
the major ones. But Miller said plac-
ing dots at all the bus stops would
make the map too cluttered.
While he cannot accommodate
everyone's desires, Miller said stu-
dents might be excited to learn that
in the fall, UF plans to install an LCD
screen at the Hub that displays the
location of buses.
Diego Barboza, a UF history se-
nior, said that would be a good idea
because it's sometimes difficult for
him to check the location of his bus
online before heading to the stop.

RTS bus hits, injures


teenage bicyclist


A teenage bicycle rider was hit
by a Regional Transit System bus
Wednesday evening at the inter-
section of Southwest 35th Place
and Southwest 23rd Terrace.
Gainesville Police Department
Cpl. Victor Norman said police
could not release the cyclist's
name.
Norman said the cyclist was
alive when he was taken to
the hospital. He did not know
whether the teenager was wear-
ing a helmet.
The young man was riding
a blue Kona brand road bike
with the words "Jake the Snake"
across the frame. The bicycle's
tires were twisted and broken.
A bike lock, iPod headphones
and a torn white T-shirt were
lying about 12 feet from the bi-
cycle.


Norman said it was very pos-
sible the teenager was listening
to the iPod when he rode in front
of the bus.
The bus driver was given a
routine blood test for alcohol,
but witnesses told police the
cyclist had not been paying at-
tention, and the bus probably
could not have stopped in time,
Norman said.
Several of the 15 passengers on
the Route 9 bus were questioned
about the accident, he said.
Police blocked Southwest 23rd
Terrace south from its intersec-
tion with Southwest 35th Place
down to Williston Road.
Heavy rain prolonged the in-
vestigation of the accident, and
traffic was stopped for several
hours.

UF study: religious students more likely to finish college


Beliefs may be linked to performance


By AMANDA McKENZIE
Alligator Contributing Writer

A strong belief in a higher power may cor-
respond to higher grades.
Students who see themselves as "very re-
ligious" are more likely to finish college and
have higher academic achievement than those
who are less religious, according to a recent
UP study.
Ana Puig, the study's research director
and affiliate UF faculty member in counselor
education, said the findings do not mean that
students must be very religious to do well in


school, but those who do perform well usually
have a strong religious dedication.
The federally funded study began 20 years
ago as an analysis of data from the National
Educational Longitudinal Study. The data is
from a survey of 11,551 eighth-grade students
in 1988 that asked lifestyle-related questions.
The responses were then compared eight
years after the same students graduated from
high school.
Puig said other variables, such as socio-eco-
nomic status, race, ethnicity, type of religion,
prior academic achievement and parental in-
volvement were also considered in the recent


analysis of the data.
Muslim students were nearly four times as
likely to attain a degree compared to "nonreli-
gious" Muslims, she said.
"People who are religious proba-
bly have a better chance of com-
pleting four years of college."
Lauren Hughes
community group leader
for Campus Crusade for Christ

Puig said that while this study is a contro-
versial, it should affect how students, teachers
and counselors interact.


"Of course, we are not saying that religion
must be included in the school structure, but
when children raise an issue of religion, it
is important to listen to what they have to
say and provide encouragement instead of
dancing around the issue or avoiding it all
together," she said.
Lauren Hughes, a community group lead-
er for Campus Crusade for Christ and a UF
classics junior, said she can understand why
students who are not very religious may have
difficulty earning their bachelor's degree.
"People who are religious probably have
a better chance of completing four years of
college than those who get caught up in a
partying scene and may end up failing out,"
Hughes said.


Southern-style comedian to perform at Gator Growl


Grab your cowboy hats and blue
suede shoes, Gators.
Jon Reep, the winner of the
fifth season of NBC's "Last Comic
Standing" and the self-proclaimed
"best redneck dancer since Elvis,"

southem-themed comedy act at this


year's 85th annual Gator Growl,
according to a Wednesday news
release.
This year's Homecoming event,
titled Gator Growl: Road to the
Swamp, will be held Oct. 24, the
night before the Gators football team
takes on the University of Kentucky.


Reep said in the release that he

On as the largest student-

Editorial
Fire up the grill, and light up the sparklers and fireworks.
It's time to celebrate America's birthday! Independence
Day provides Americans young and old, of all races and
religions, backgrounds and regions, the opportunity to do what
we excel at: enjoying copious amounts of red meat and alcoholic
beverages and, of course, blowing stuff up. But before you get
started on those burgers, brews and combustibles, we at the
Department of Darts and Laurels offer you this week's red,
white and blue edition of...



Darts & Laurels
First off, we launch a don't-you-know-only-the-U.S.-govern-
ment-can-torture-people? DART to Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity
for its low-class and appalling use of hazing practices on its
pledges. The fraternity was suspended for four years for forcing
pledges to do wall sits for extended periods of time and walk-
ing on their legs if they failed to hold the position. Pledges were
also forced to consume large quantities of alcohol. We're all for
knocking back a few brewskis, but no one should be forced to
binge drink in order to join some airhead dub of polo-attired
thugs. The Greek community at UF engages in some truly
laudable philanthropic activities. We appreciate their contribu-
tions to campus life and respect them as fellow students. But
Pi Kappa Phi perpetuates the worst and most enduring Greek
stereotypes. We urge the UF Greek community to forcefully re-
pudiate Pi Kappa Phi and their ignoble actions. But don't worry,
we won't be holding our breath. We can only hope this suspen-
sion will be enough to prevent vile behavior of this kind from
rearing its ugly head in the future.
We realize that our regular readers will note our recent flip-
flopping between subjecting our elected leaders to scorn and
ridicule and giving them plaudits. But that's just how we roll:
We call 'em like we see 'em. This week, we feel that the suits in
Tallahassee deserve some props. As such, we've got a double-
shot of approbation for people we usually love to dis.
First, we send an it's-about-time-someone-held-these-shy-
sters-accountable LAUREL to Florida Attorney General Bill
McCollum for doing his litigious duty in suing Countrywide
Financial for engaging in predatory lending practices.
McCollum claims in his suit that Countrywide violated the
law by deceiving at least 100 hardworking Floridian families
into agreeing to mortgages that they couldn't afford in order
to produce large numbers of mortgage loans for resale on the
secondary mortgage market. It's this sort of mortgage mischief
that has played a large role in driving the nation's economy off
the proverbial cliff. We thank our AG for sticking it to these
swindlers and sticking up for Floridians.
Next, we present a we-like-to-see-you-promote-conserva-
tion-over-risky-exploration LAUREL to Gov. Charlie Crist
for his landmark land deal with U.S. Sugar Corporation for
Everglades restoration. The momentous $1.75 billion buyout
proposal announced last week would allow U.S. Sugar to con-
tinue farming for six years after which Florida would take con-
trol of the 300-square-mile territory and turn it into a bulwark
for the Everglades.
While we couldn't disagree more with Crist's newfound
infatuation with offshore drilling, this push for Everglades
restoration is (as far as we can tell) unprecedented and merits
serious praise.
We're not sure if our customary disdain for Student
Government is related to our love of lampooning our state and
federal elected officials, but this week we are facing a similarly
alarming trend of commending them for a job well done.
As unfamiliar as this position may be for us, we nonethe-
less offer a your-take-no-prisioners-(or gym fees)-negotiation-
style-serves-the-student-body-well-and-no-we're-not-intend-
ing-to-be-"backhanded"-about-it LAUREL to Student Body
President Kevin Reilly for his successful efforts to slash the
odious RecSports usage fees for students not enrolled in sum-
mer classes.
Although students not enrolled in summer B classes will
still have to pay a $20 fee to use campus gyms, that's still much
better than the outrageous $50 fee first reported. On behalf of
all the students that Mr. Reilly just saved $30, we offer a sincere
thank you.

U.S. could learn much from Argentina


-r-r the past two weeks, I was down in Argentina on vaca-
tion. This has kept me far away from my usual regimen
of American politics and news. But while there, I found
that Argentina's national political scene is almost as hard to stay
away from as the red wine and grilled beef.
The biggest story every day has been Argentine President
Christina Kirchner's proposed 10 percent tax hike on agricul-
tural exports to fund her ambitious social programs. Since agri-
culture is one of the largest industries in Argentina, tampering
with it isn't taken very lightly And the farmers of Argentina
have shown their disapproval by not only striking but also
shutting down major highway routes all across the country
in protest. In the capital of Buenos Aires, those supporting the
farmers gathered en masse in front of the "Casa Rosada" the
equivalent of our White House.
Then something remarkable happened. President Kirchner
directly addressed the people rallying against her. Even more
impressive, after more than three months of continuous activ-
ism by the farmers, the president allowed the decision on the
taxes to be made in the national legislature a more demo-
cratic body that might find a compromise.
As I heard this news, the image of George W. Bush address-
ing a group of anti-war protesters outside the White House and
making concessions made me chuckle inside, and then it made
me angry. We all know that such a display of humility would
never come from a president who believes he takes mandates
from God.
A salient example of this reality occurred right before the
invasion of Iraq, when millions of people protested around
the country and the world to voice their objections to the com-
ing war. Instead of taking a second look at his plans for war
and considering the opinion of those protesting, Bush and his
cronies took it as a sign that they needed to ramp up the propa-
ganda campaign.
Another contrast to the U.S. that I have discovered in
Argentina is the difference in the way the media covers con-
troversial political events. During my stay in Argentina, the


coverage of the tax issue and the
demonstrations of its supporters
and opponents was incessant and
in-depth. Congressional debates
were played in full on the nightly
news, and newspapers devoted
multiple pages to the story.
Brandon Sack When protesters interrupt our
letters@alligator.org Congress or rally against the war in
Washington, D.C., the mainstream
media in the U.S. give us a five-
second sound bite or ignore them altogether and instead shove
some piece of celebrity gossip down our throats.
Finally, I realized that in the U.S., we tend to take our democ-
racy for granted and shy away from activism -this is probably
due to the previous two observations.
While inArgentina, I witnessed two other strikes one over
taxi-driver safety and the other regarding discontent among
subway workers. I couldn't help but think that if these folks get
this worked up over issues Americans would probably ignore,
what would happen if their government was conducting two
mishandled wars and thinking about starting a third? Would
they even allow their country to function while thousands of
their countrymen and women were being killed needlessly?
Would they just wait it out until 2009? I doubt it.
Perhaps their activism and participation is a result of the fact
that most Argentines can still remember the horrors of a brutal
dictatorship. Perhaps it's because their democracy is so young
they have yet to be jaded by corrupt and unresponsive politics.
But can you imagine if a country of 300 million decided to get
involved at their level of activism?
At the risk of saying something positive, I am encouraged by
the type of increasing awareness and participation of Americans
of all ages after eight years of Bush. In fact, that may just be his
greatest accomplishment.

UF RESEARCH

'Virtual patients' help identify racial bias in doctors


By JESSIE COLEMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Edna sits on an examining table ready and
alert she wants answers about the lump in
her breast.
For each of the 21 medical students who
enter the room, Edna's fears are still to be dis-
covered. They each see the same 55-year-old
woman, each meet with the same brown eyes.
They all hear the same Southern twang in her
voice and the same .tremor of fear when she
asks if she could have cancer.
The only difference is that 12 of the stu-
dents see a dark-skinned version of Edna, and
the other nine students see a light-skinned
version.
Edna is a computer-animated image pro-
jected life-size on the side of a white wall, and
she is used in a study monitoring the interac-
tions of medical students with virtual patients.
The study, which has three of five authors
from UF, found white medical students were
less empathetic toward black virtual patients
in one-on-one interviews.
"Bias in the real world is translating to the
virtual world," said Benjamin Lok, an author
of the study.


The existence of racial partiality in the
medical field is a problem acknowledged
since the 2002 government study "Unequal
Treatment."
"We're not claiming that we have found
any new bias," said Lok, an assistant profes-
sor in UF's Department of Computer and
Information Science and Engineering.
The fact that bias is still present in mock
doctor-patient scenarios shows that students
treat virtual patients in a realistic manner, he
said.
"Our goal is to try to mimic as close as pos-
sible a doctor talking to a patient," Lok said.
For the medical students who participated
in the study, interaction with Edna was made
as real-life as possible. Infrared lights and sen-
sors allowed Edna to detect the position of
students and look at them as they moved.
A hat embedded with a microphone en-
abled students to talk with her. Edna was
programmed to offer about 200 different re-
sponses to as many as 500 questions.
After the interviews, medical and non-
medical people rated students' empathy on a
scale of one to seven. The raters could not see
Edna's skin tone.
Empathy scores were compared to results


of a post-interview subconscious bias-detect-
ing test created by a University of Washington
psychologist.
Brent Rossen, a UF CISE graduate student
and an author of the study, hopes the virtual
patient program will be used as a tool to al-
leviate bias.
"The way to get rid of racial biases
is to train them out. It's not about
somebody's skin tone; it's about
what you're not used to."
Brent Rossen
UF CISE graduate student

"The way to get rid of racial biases is to
train them out," Rossen said. "It's not about
somebody's skin tone; it's about what you're
not used to."
He added that virtual patients could help
eradicate bias in other areas as well, such as
gender and weight.
Although the virtual patients resemble vid-
eo game characters more than people, Rossen
said they are a better option than hiring actors
to play patients the current procedure used


to allow medical students to practice doctor-
patient scenarios.
Also, virtual patients can show physical
signs of illness that actors cannot normally
recreate, such as a lazy eye or a broken arm.
Lok said the study is one facet of research
based on a four-year project to develop virtual
patients.
The project, which Lok started in collabo-
ration with the Medical College of Georgia's
chief of surgical oncology, Dr. David Scott
Lind, has received $1.3 million in funding from
the National Institutes of Health, the National
Science Foundation and the Association of
Surgical Educators.
Professors at the Medical College of
Georgia will use the technology in a class
this fall, and educators at Keele University in
the United Kingdom are also involved in the
project.
Kyle Johnsen, an author of the study who
recently received his doctorate from UF,
said virtual patients would benefit medical
schools.
"They're teaching med students through
text and lectures, but the way you learn these
skills is by experiencing and getting feed-
back," Johnsen said.

STA Travel agency shuts down Reitz Union location


By BETHY PIERRE
Alligator Contributing Writer

A single poster with a new message has
replaced the signs that once advertised dis-
counted airline fares outside STA Travel. The
poster now announces that the agency's loca-
tion has been dosed.
Forty-eight STA Travel locations, including
the store that was located on the ground floor
of the Reitz Union, were dosed Friday, said
Amanda Webb, STA Travel spokeswoman.
The decision to close the branches will
leave about 200 employees without jobs. All
employees and customers of the dosed loca-
tions were notified the same day, Webb said.


With the change, STA Travel will be focus-
ing its growth on other areas, including its
Web site, call center and other retail locations,
she said.
Downsizing the number of stores will en-
able it to better cope with the country's eco-
nomic woes, according to a news release from
STA Travel.
STA Travel will continue to maintain 17
U.S. locations and its international locations,
which were not affected at all, she said.
' Customers of the closed locations have
been redirected to handle travel plans through
STA Travel's 24-hour, seven-day-a-week cus-
tomer service hotline.
And as a possible substitute to the dosed


locations, STA Travel opened its first flag-
ship retail kiosk on Monday at Ohio State
University in a partnership with Barnes &
Noble College Bookstores. The kiosk will have

"I used to travel on a whim. But
now I've got to budget and plan
ahead."
Ruth Bien-Alme
UF alumna

the same services and products as a traditional
retail store along with a staff of STA Travel
personnel, according to the release.
Webb is unsure if the kiosk idea will go na-


tionwide, but she sees it as a promising retail
concept.
Ruth Bien-Aime, a UF alumna, said she
is not surprised by STA Travel's decision to
downsize in light of the poor economy and
student's unwillingness to spend on big trips.
"I used to travel on a whim," Bien-Amie
said. "But now I've got to budget and plan
ahead."
Michael Mironack, director of operations
for the Reitz Union, said the building is still
looking for new tenants to fill the space left
open by STA Travel and also for the space va-
cated by The Studio earlier this summer.
The arts studio moved to the Reitz Union
basement.


UF researchers develop implant for paralyzed patients


* THE DEVICE TRANSLATES
THOUGHTS TO MACHINES.

By NATHALY LONGAS
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF scientists have designed a
device that could someday be put
into the brains of paralyzed patients
and help them control mechanical
devices with their thoughts.
A recent study found that the
device, known as a brain-machine
interface, could potentially lead
paraplegic patients to mentally


control prosthetic limbs.
The brain-machine interface
would translate their thoughts
directly to control communication
devices such as a computer or a
prosthetic and would even evolve
with the brain as it learns, said
Justin C. Sanchez, senior author of
the study and an assistant professor
of pediatric neurology at UF.
"We want to give people that are
trapped in their bodies an alterna-
tive means, to communicate and
control things," Sanchez said.
Until recently, brain-machine


interfaces had been designed as a
one-way conversation between the
computer and the brain, which sent
all the commands while the com-
puter simply followed them.
The new neural implant creates
a two-way conver-
UF station between the
Research computer and the
brain, allowing
the computer to be involved in the
conversation as well, Sanchez said.
The brain-machine interfaces
are surgically implanted in the
body and would only be available


for people who have lost complete
control of their upper or lower
body, such as paraplegic and quad-
riplegic patients, he said.
"This is the most debilitating
scenario because people are what's
called 'locked in' all of their fac-
ulties are working in their brain,
but they have no way of expressing
it because their body is completely
paralyzed," Sanchez said.
While brain-machine interfaces
could help paralyzed patients, they
could also benefit amputees, such
as soldiers coming back from Iraq


who have lost a limb during com-
bat, he said.
It took 18 months and three
rats as subjects for researchers to
create this type of brain-machine
interface.
Jack DiGiovanna, an engineer-
ing doctoral student who collabo-
rated on the study, said this par-
ticular neural implant is only being
tested on rats.
He said he hopes that it can
someday be tried on humans,
which has been the case with other
brain-machine interfaces.

Officials gear up for the 4th


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

The county burn ban was lifted last
week after heavy rain, but local law en-
forcement will still make their rounds to
monitor fireworks during Fourth of July
celebrations.
As in years past, residents will be al-
lowed to light fireworks only if they have
obtained a fireworks permit.
Tim Hayes, deputy fire chief for
Gainesville Fire Rescue, said fireworks
that "leave the ground" or "move along
the ground under their own propul-
sion" are illegal without a permit, but a
loophole in the law allows for their wide-
spread usage.
As long as buyers are willing to sign a
waiver stating that they plan to use their
purchases for agricultural and not recre-
ational means, they are legally safe.
Hayes said he knows that the major-
ity of purchased fireworks
Public are not used to "scare birds
Safety out of trees," and he added
that the motivations for buy-
ing fireworks can be difficult for police to
determine.
Last year, the local fire rescue squad
sent two representatives, including Hayes,
to Tallahassee to try to change state legis-
lation on fireworks sales.
Hayes said they came back empty-
handed without the ability to even put a.
city ordinance into effect.
"We don't have enforcement to keep
people from selling them," he said. "We
don't have much enforcement over pri-
vate property either."
Local law enforcement will monitor the
use of fireworks as well as the potential
neighborhood disruptions they might
create.
Both Lt. Stephen Maynard of the
Alachua County Sheriff's Office and
Summer Hallett of the Gainesville Police
Department agreed that noise complaints
and nuisance violations will constitute the
majority of action taken by law enforce-
ment.
"Just because you like to stay up late
doesn't mean your neighbors do," Hallett
said. "And just because you like to use
fireworks doesn't mean your neighbors
do."
Hallett said the police will have party
patrols near downtown, but the depart-


ment will not increase the number of of-
ficers on duty.
"We're not exactly in DEFCON mode,"
she said. "Typically, the Fourth of July is
pretty calm."
Maynard expressed more of a concern
and said the sheriff's office will have an
increased amount of officers on duty.
He said verbal warnings and fireworks
seizures will be common methods of en-
forcement, but he made it clear that if citi-
zens fail to comply with those initial steps,
arrests could be made.
An increase in alcohol usage is another
primary concern for the sheriff's office.
"Why anyone would think it's a good
idea to detonate an explosive while hav-
ing impaired faculties is beyond me,"
Maynard said.
Hayes said the reason people get hurt
is because they are inexperienced in han-
dling explosives.
"Leave the fireworks to the profession-
als," he said.
Eye injuries and loss of fingers are com-
mon consequences of the public's celebra-
tory antics, Hayes said.
Despite concerns of potential fires and
injuries, Hallett said law enforcement
wants the holiday to be fun, but celebra-
tions should be responsible.
She said fireworks users should keep a
hose and buckets of water handy.
People also should pick up the trash
and make sure everything is extin-
guished.
"Have a good time, but be mindful
of the people around you and your sur-
roundings," she said.

Fireworks Safety Tips
Never try to re-ignite fireworks thal have
malfunctioned. Soak them with water and
throw them away.
Keep a bucket of water or a fire extinguisher
handy.
Only light fireworks on a smooth, flat surface
away from houses, dry leaves and any other
flammable materials
i Watch what you wear. Loose clothing
can catch fire and should not be worn while
handling fireworks The fireworks user should
always wear eye protection

ROTC hosts


field day

By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Writer

UF students got to prove they could "go
Army, go strong" Wednesday at the Army
ROTC Field Day on the North Lawn.
Second Lt. Jennifer Harris, a UF alumna
and temporary recruiter for ROTC, shouted
counts as students sweated through push-ups
for prizes, which included T-shirts, Mason
jars, calendars and other UF Arniy ROTC
items.
Harris said the point of the field day was
to raise awareness about ROTC and stomp
out a few misconceptions about the program.
"People think if you join ROTC, you're in
for life, and they're going to deploy you, and
that's not true," she said.
Harris attributed last year's record-low
enrollment of 77 students to the false impres-
sion of the program.
This year, through events like the field
day and other campus promotions, Harris
has battled misjudgments. The battalion has
"People think if you join ROTC, you're
in for life, and they're going to deploy
you, and that's not true."
Second Lt. Jennifer Harris
UF alumna


almost doubled to 150 students, she said.
"As long as they're open-minded about it,
they listen," Harris said.
ROTC is a voluntary elective that counts
toward any major, Harris said. Students can
take the elective for up to two years without
any obligation to the Army.
At any time, they can voluntarily sign a
contract that obligates them to join the Army
after they graduate.
"I was a little bit of a party animal, and it
saved me from dropping out," said Harris,
who attributed her improved public speaking
skills and physique, among other qualities, to
her time in ROTC.
Students who sign the contract do not have
to serve while still enrolled, and the contract
pays for tuition, books, a monthly.salary, and
room and board.
"I'm a really girly girl and was never go-
ing to go into the Army," Harris said.
But when she learned about the scholar-
ship her freshman year, she decided to try out
the program.
Laura Alarcon, a freshman chemistry ma-
jor, was not convinced.
"I'm not into that stuff, like dedicating
myself to the Army," Alarcon said.
She did, however, dedicate a few min-
utes of her time to pump out 50 push-ups,
which earned her a water bottle, T-shirt and
Frisbee.
The exercise left her winded.
"Just doing 50 straight was a little-," she
paused to take a breath. "My legs are shaky."

Senate honors deceased students
By VICTORIA WINKLER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Members of Student Senate passed reso-
lutions at their Tuesday meeting honoring 28 -
UF students who died last year.
Sen. Thomas Cockriel, chairman of the ju- 4
diciary committee, authored the bills, which
cover student deaths that occurred over the
2007 summer and fall semesters and 2008
spring semester. -
Cockriel offered his condolences for the
fallen students and also for those who have
died this summer. Copies of the resolution L
will be sent to UF's Dean of Students Office
and to the students' families, Cockriel said.
Before unanimously approving the
bills, the Senate hosted City Commissioner
Thomas Hawkins, who
Student fielded questions from
Government the senators on several
issues, including the pro-
posed fire assessment fees.
Senators expressed worries about the
proposed fee, which, if adopted, would be
levied on property owners in Gainesville to
help make up for the city budget deficit that
is expected to total more than $2 million.
Hawkins. said that due to undecided
property tax rates, it has not been deter-
mined if all property owners would actually
experience an overall increase in how much
money they have to hand over to the city.
"It's easy to assume it would have a nega-
tive effect in pocketbooks, but it might not,"
he said.
Hawkins also said the fees would prob- i
ably fall harder on businesses rather than
residential properties, and alternatives such
as staff cuts have been proposed.
The senators also probed Hawkins about
rising utility rates, unisex bathrooms and
neighborhood crime.
Hawkins said in a Wednesday afternoon Edward Izqulerdo, Alligator
interview that he was pleased with the City Commissioner Thomas Hawkins discusses several plans for down-
breadth of questions the senators asked. town Gainesville during Tuesday night's Student Senate meeting.

For some early risers, the Fourth of

Registration and the proceeding
awards ceremony will be held in front

than last-year's number because it
will take place on a weekday.

Enraged car driver strikes bicyclist


A Gainesville man drove away in an orange-gold car after
he struck a cyclist in a fit of road rage Tuesday afternoon.
Rafael Ferrer-Barbot, 34, was riding down Southwest
20th Avenue when he was sent flying off his-bike and onto
the grass, said Lt. Stephen Maynard, spokesman for the
Alachua County Sheriff's Office.
Ferrer-Barbot was mildly injured with scrapes and bruis-
es. He was conscious, alert and talking when police arrived,
Maynard said.
Earlier that day, Ferrer-Barbot and the driver, Felix
Rodriguez, 26, had argued in the parking lot at Lil' Champ
Food Store on Southwest 20th Avenue, witnesses told po-
lice.
Rodriguez accused a group of cyclists, including Ferrer-
Barbot, of scratching his car with their bikes.
Maynard said police could .not determine whether


Rodriguez's car had actually been scratched.
"But it's not relevant to the investigation," he said. "A car
scratch does not give grounds to run somebody over."

UF Starbucks to remain open


600 stores to close in U.S.


By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Writer
While the number of Starbucks
locations nationwide will soon be
downsized by 600, UF students
will still have all four campus
stores to quell their caffeine crav-
ings.
In a letter sent to stores
Tuesday, CEO Howard Schultz
announced that beginning in
mid-July and lasting through
March 2009, the company will
close 600 of its "underperform-
ing" locations.


"For more than a year now, we
have seen the adverse impact that
a slower economy and dramatic
decline in consumer confidence
have had on our U.S. business,"
Schultz wrote.
National Jill Rodriguez,
News the marketing
consultant for
Aramark, UF's
food service provider, said the
stores on campus would not be
affected but could not elaborate
on the reasons for that.
The fate of other Gainesville
locations is not yet known as this
information is still being final-


ized, according to a company
statement.
Starbucks also expects to open
fewer than 200 new stores start-
ing in the 2009-2010 fiscal year,
according to a company news
release.
Seventy percent of stores
drafted to close have been open
fewer than three years. "
As a result of the decision,
many full- and part-time employ-
ees will be laid off if they cannot
be placed at nearby locations,
Schultz wrote.
"By far, this is the most angst-
ridden decision we have made
in my more than 25 years with
Starbucks/' he wrote.


Festivities include fish fry, cook-off, music


CELEBRATION, from page 1


residents have been meeting weekly since February
to plan the city's celebration.
The city, which has a population of around 7,000,
is expected to host about 15,000 people for what Cain
says is the "largest small-town fireworks display in
the country."
Here are some of the holiday celebrations being
offered in Alachua County:
July 3:
*UF: Music and food at Flavet Field starting at 7


p.m. Fireworks over Hume Field at 9:40 p.m.
July 4:
Patriotic music will play. at Gainesville's
Downtown Community Plaza at 7:30 p.m.
City of Alachua: Festival at Hal Brady Recreation
Center at noon. Fireworks start at 9:30 p.m.
*Newberry: Sports competitions at Newberry
Sports Complex all day. Fireworks start at dark.
eMicanopy: Fish fry and blood drive from 9 a.m.
to dusk. Fireworks start at dark.
*Cedar Key: Clam dishes and cook-off are from
10 a.m. to 6 p.m.


Some must still pay $50


GYM, from page 1
president of student affairs,
to renegotiate the summer
B charge.
To determine the fee,
they calculated how much.
money a student taking six
credit hours during summer
B would pay toward gym
fees as part of-their tuition.
The result was close to the
$20 students pay now.
"It makes sense," said
David Stopka, associate di-
rector for facility operations.
"We're trying to make it fair
for everybody."
Because the new policy
went into effect Tuesday,
the Membership Services of-
fice at Southwest Recreation
Center has been flexing its
administrative muscles to
enroll more than 150 new
members.
Those who do plan to
pay for gym use should
anticipate exercising a little
patience in the membership


office, as up to eight people
at a time crowd the small
space.
"I've never seen so many
people walk through that
door," said Melissa Garcia, a
UF criminology senior who
works in the membership
office.
Garcia said most people
have been receptive to the
cheaper cost to use the gym.
"The facilities here are so
nice," said Jessica Lillesand,
a recent law school gradu-
ate. "Don't look a gaft horse
in the mouth."
Students can pay the fee,
which amounts. to $21.25
including tax, with cash or
creditcard.
They will also fill out a.
questionnaire about their
physical activity along with
a membership agreement.
To be eligible for the $20
membership fee, a print-out
of an ISIS schedule is also
-needed to verify registration
in fall 2008 classes.

Action Research blends music and i


mayhem


A SHAW PATTON
11 rules are out the window when it
comes to experimental music. Primal
reams, scratchy dialogue, looping
riffs and ambient echoes are just some of the
sounds at a typical Action Research show.
According to its MySpace page, "Action
Research is a means to organize experimen-
tal and noise shows in Gainesville." Andrew
Chadwick, 33, started the project one year
ago.
Chadwick created Action Research to bring
music that he enjoyed to local venues. He was
persuaded to take action by Chris Miller, 39,
who runs Electronic SubSouth, an already
established movement in Gainesville that also
aims to give musicians from underrepresented
genres exposure.


* AVENUE WRITER
"Rather than complaining, you have to
step forward and make it happen," Chadwick
said.
Hal McGee, a 50-year-old veteran musi-
cian, is part of
Action Research
and plays at many "CREATING A S

described McGee as

Chadwick said
that Christopher Cprek, 29, a Tallahassee
musician known to many as Pax Titania, is
also "an equal and important part of what
we're doing." Cprek organizes the shows in


Tallahassee, including their most recent show,
Action Research #25.
"I played an Action Research show in

with a similar aes-

Action Research primarily consists of
Chadwick, but people like Cprek, McGee and
other enthusiastic artists all contribute to the
movement to make shows possible.


Action Research #24, which was hosted at
George's Meet and Produce on June 13, was
the most recent Gainesville show.
"Creating a show is an organic process. It's
not a flow chart," Chadwick said. "I am using
what I have, which means sometimes, some
more unconventional venues."
McGee performed first, playing synthe-
sizer as part of a duet with trumpet player,
Jay Peele.
Andrew Barranca, under the name
GayBomb, also performed. He used two
Califone Magnetic Card Readers devices
originally intended to help children read.

Go bold with accessories

EMILIE WILLIAMS AVENUE WRITER


Think pink, do blue, be seen in green
and say hello to yellow. This summer's
shoes and purses are all about vibrant
colors.
Flip-flops are a staple for summer in
Florida, and they're the perfect way to add
color to your wardrobe. My favorite brand
is the Brazilian line, Havaianas. They come
in a variety of bright styles and match ev-
ery outfit.
This summer's wedges are anything but
neutral. If you really want an accessory
to pop, wear an all-white top and bottom
with this season's lime green wedge.
To complement your footwear, put away
your large hobo bags and stock up on this
season's "it" clutches.
According to redcarpetvictim.com,


"The best part about moving away from
the over sized bag to the tiny clutch is that
you can once again match your shoes to
your purse. It's really all about the acces-
sory this season and bringing two great
ones together in one big statement says
more than the rest of the outfit."
Now that you know what to wear,
where do you get it? Jessica Simpson's
'spring/summer collection features shoes
and bags in every bold color imaginable,
-and they're actually fashionable. Don't be-
lieve me? Check out her collection at your
nearest Dillard's.
Be daring this summer. If we can wear
white after Labor Day, why not brighten it
up with bold accessories?


The next show is July 12.

derous wailing. The sound was akin to

Zeppelin record spun the wrong way.
All night, Chadwick directed the fluc-
tuating crowd of about 80 people to each
act in the warehouse.
There were 10 performances at Action
Research #24. Chadwick encourages
bands to play short sets to maximize the
amount of people who can participate.
"What we are doing is truly the only
alternative to the status quo of guitar he-
gemony," Miller said of Action Research
and Electronic SubSouth.
"Right now (Action Research) is the


hot new thing, and the shows are getting
a lot of well-deserved attendance and
buzz," he said. "There's so much going
on right now that it's hard to think about
what lies ahead."
The next show is scheduled for
Saturday, July 12 at George's Meet and
Produce, which will be a collaboration
between Miller and Chadwick called
Action Research #26 vs. Electronic
SubSouth #43.
"(Action Research) is totally a good
thing to happen," said Dave Armitage,
24, a.UF graduate student who per-
formed at Action Research #24 under
the name, No Limit Cydcle.
"Lots of interesting folks are making
their way here to hang with the Florida
crazies and derelicts."

Rigler's latest novel sure to please avid Jane Austen fans


BRIANA O'SULLIVAN + AVENUE WRITER


If the early 90s sci-fi show "Quantum
Leap" and PBS's "Masterpiece Theatre"
had a passionate affair, "Confessions of
a Jane Austen Addict" by Laurie Viera
Rigler would be their love child.,
After an unexpected break with her
fiance, Courtney Stone, the novel's Jane
Austen-loving protagonist, finds herself
trapped in another woman's body during
Victorian-era England. Courtney has the
looks and voice of Jane Mansfield and,
without any other option, resorts to living
her life as an upper-class lady. She finds,
however, that the life she so prized in
Austen's novels is more tricky and oppres-
sive than she imagined. But our heroine
artfully navigates the challenges of formal
dances, chaperones and marriage propos-


als, sometimes more artfully than others.
A cameo from Jane Austen herself also
provides an indulgent delight.
While "Confessions" points out the
vulgar reality of life for women in the 19th
century, Rigler also manages to keep the
pragmatic romanticism that has become
associated with the works of Jane Austen.
The book's strength is Courtney's struggle
with her new found life. While she enjoys
the servants who cater to her every whim,
she wants to unionize them, though she
continues to accept their backbreaking
work.
As Courtney becomes further envel-
oped in the life of Jane, she begins to learn
small truths about herself, commenting
that "they say the truth will set you free,


but what nobody tells you is that some-
times the truth will also make you miser-
able."
The biggest hitch in- Rigler's novel is
not in the plot or setting; it is in the writ-
ing. In general, the book moves quickly


Confessions
of a Jane Austen Addict
Laurie Viera Rigler
Dutton Adult (2007)


and seamlessly from one situation to an-
other, but then the narrator starts asking
questions.
Whole paragraphs of open-ended ques-
tions leave the reader feeling as if he or she


should somehow answer them.
"If I'm such a good person, or if Jane
is, for that matter, then why do we get
our hearts bashed in by men like Frank
or Edgeworth?" she muses, channeling
Carrie Bradshaw and the damsel-in-dis-
tress cliche.
Halfway into the book, it gets tiresome,
and Rigler is lucky her story is charming
enough to entice the reader to keep turn-
ing pages.
"Confessions" is without a doubt chick
lit, though it is of a different pedigree than
the $4 romantic paperbacks with wind-
swept male models and quivering women
occupying the covers. Rigler serves up a
quick and satisfying read with a unique
plot, funny banter and a love story that
might make you longingly sigh out loud.

"Get Smart" goes dull

BY ALLISON GRINER AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER


The tuxedos, guns and gad-
gets are back. "Get Smart," a big-
screen adaptation of the 1960s
show parodying the spy genre,
indulges in every. James Bond
and Pink Panther stereotype to
creati-an enjoyable spoof.
A nerdy and. clueless Steve
Carell plays Maxwell Smart, an
analyst tired of his desk job at
CONTROL, a U.S. spy agency
combating the evil organization
KAOS.
When KAOS attacks
CONTROL, Smart is promoted to
agent status with partner Agent
99 (Anne Hathaway). Aided by
the chief (Alan Arkin) and Agent
23 (Dwayne Johnson), they set
out to foil KAOS' scheme and
discover the agent who betrayed
them.
Embracing the genre, you can

expect a tricky love scenario,
ridiculous conspiracy and of
course, the indestructible hero.
The -characters make "Get
Smart" a pleasure to watch for
fans of the genre, but the film
cannot withstand a critical eye.
The jokes seem all too similar
to gags done in the Austin Powers
trilogy. The political jokes also
seem worn out, but the character-
based comedy compensates for
these weak points. Steve Carell
carries this film with his deadpan
performance, and despite the
outrageous characters, the actors
seem to perform effortlessly.
The movie's title is an irony,
not a promise to viewers. So long
as the audience can stand the
familiar format, "Get Smart" can
get a few laughs with its not-so-
clever quips.

* Solve woes with words


Relationships can drive you mad.
* I recently became semi-involved with a
guy, and no sooner had I entered this semi-
relationship than I went semi-insane.
9 No doubt, the real thing would have
landed me in the nearest asylum.
At first, I was addicted to his company.
0 Then I wanted my independence, which
brought argument. But when I grew lonely,
the cycle repeated. I was stubborn and in-
decisive, which hindered our relationship.
What's worse is we didn't talk about it.
* Refusing to admit my faults and misplacing
blame had morphed me into a jealous, inse-
cure woman.
* After several fights, I decided we needed
to talk. Neither of us was benefiting from the
current situation, and if he knew how I felt,
ma) be we could -top fighting
But I quickly realized that even if he wore
a 36D bra and painted his nails pink, he
would still be a boy and never fully under-


t


stand my feelings.
Guys and girls
are polar opposites.
Women are planners
and thinkers while men are doers. Females
can plan a night out days in advance, from
outfits to possible scenarios where the only
thing missing is male participation.
We understand that cars break down, or
you had other plans, but you need to under-
stand that we need attention and explana-
tion.
After all the fighting, the end result is usu-
ally make-up sex. What do you expect when
you pit catty women against laid-back men?
Make-up sex can help. It fully restored my
sanity. Sometimes an orgasm is the best way
to resolve a fight.
However, it shouldn't be your only solu-
tion. The only way to heal the wound is to do
some genuine communicating that doesn't
involve a bed, couch or backseat.

Hippies score on debut

ROBERT HILSON AVENUE WRITER


Fleet Foxes isn't your father's
Seattle band. The five-piece Puget
pioneers avoid flannel, regularly bathe
and here's the real departure seem
genuinely happy to be alive. These guys
have aesthetic taste, favoring 16h cen-
tury cover artwork over naked babies
(Nirvana) and mangy farm animals
(Pearl Jam). Of greater importance, the
group's brand of Brian Wilson-flavored
folk lullaby makes more noise in blogs
than in stadiums, a telltale sign that they
are out of place and time.
Lacking recognition, Fleet Foxes'
self-titled debut LP might be confused
for an unearthed collaboration in which
Nick Drake and the Beach Boys jam to
Zombies outtakes. But with credentials
intact, the album reveals itself as both a
modern update to the Beach Boys' "Pet
Sounds" and an American near-classic.
A cappella harmonies on opener
"Sun It Rises" single-handedly bury an
era of angry guitar rock and patent a
kind of wuss-folk of the most endearing
order music for guys who eat tofu


and girls who don't shave their pits.
Following the nature-as-church
tambourine clapper "White Winter
Hymnal," the two-piece epic "Ragged
Wood" transforms from a bouncy
Shins-styled jaunt into an otherworldly
campfire send-up. As far as memorable
mantras go, the song seamlessly adapts
"Kumbaya" for a generation of cynics.
It's the stuff goose bumps are made of
- two and a half minutes of aching
beauty.
"Blue Ridge Mountains" represents
the record's second peak. Countrified
pop via the Newrport Folk Festival, this
piano-and-string exercise recalls the
lush compositions of Gram Parsons.
Its melodic accompaniment similarly,
evokes the late Grievous Angel.
Passing time may anoint this a land-
mark collection, one that matches the
vibrant splendor of immortal forbearers.
Regardless, Fleet Foxes already does the
truly unthinkable: parts the clouds and
brings a glint of sunshine to the Great
Northwest.

Demps with a professional track contract?
If Urban Meyer wants Demps to stick
around in Gainesville for a while, he is going
to need to give him a reason to stay.
Ayear or two on the bench could lead to an
Xavier Carter-like exit from the freshman.
You may recall that the former LSU wide
receiver gave up his collegiate eligibility as a
sophomore in 2006 in favor of a multimillion-
dollar contract to run professionally for Nike.

winner will be announced Jiuy 27

to compete with the New York's

Gainesville could be a contender.
"When we were kicking around
cities we knew [Gainesville] was
a city that had a chance," heid.
"Hopetully the fans in Gainesville
come out and show that spirit that
we expect."


With Kestahn Moore, Emmanuel Moody
and Chris Rainey all set to man the running
back rotation this fall, and Brandon James
holding a firm grip on the return duties, it
could be difficult for Demps to find his way
onto the field. Especially since all of those
players are underclassmen except for the se-
nior Moore.
If Meyer can't find a way to get him in-
volved early on, he may have to watch the
speedster run right out of town.


2004 medalist Lochte one of eleven to have qualified for summer games


SW I M, from page 26

He qualified for the 400-meter
individual medley with a second-
place finals finish. Though Lochte
finished first in the semifinals
and finished under the previ-
ous world-record time at 4:06.08,


he couldn't keep up with 2004
U.S. Olympic teammate Michael
Phelps, who shattered the record
he previously held by clocking in
at 4:05.25. Lochte and Phelps will
fill the only two available spots on
the U.S. Olympic team for the 400-
meter individual medley.
Again, Lochte was not the only


one to turn in a career performance.
2008 senior
Dustin McLarty
and junior Clark
Burckle both
Swimming swam for per-
sonal bests, with
McLarty tapping in at 4:18.90 and
Burckle finishing at 4:19.24, good


for sixth and seventh place, respec-
tively. Burckle also swam a career-
best 2:00.20 in the preliminaries for
the 200-meter fly, but just missed
the top 16 and qualified as the
second alternate for the evening
semifinals on Tuesday.
Recent alumnus Tim Hughes
finished half a second after


Burckle, setting a new career-best
time at 2:00.71. Not to be outdone,
McLarty also set a new personal
record with a time of 2:02.26 in the
event, 44th overall.
Nine other Gators have already
qualified for competition in Beijing
as members of their countries' re-
spective teams.






28, ALLIGATOR 0 THURSDAY, JULY 3,2008


76ers make good fit for Speights


S hen Regina Glenn-Speights
/ and her daughter Willena were
kneeling in the middle of their
living room on June 26, they were relieved
Marreese went so high in the NBA Draft.
Marreese Speights was plucked at No. 16
by the Philadelphia 76ers, a more than re-
spectable spot for an athlete that has played
just five years of organized basketball and
.-nas just one season of significant minutes
at UF.
But what they really should be thank-
ful for is not how high he went, but where
he went. To all the NBA Draft experts who
have praised Speights' potential I'm
skeptical. Very skeptical.
What I saw last year with his condition-
ing and intangibles didn't equate into a suc-
cessful NBA player.
But if he's successful anywhere, it'll be
in Philadelphia. Coach Maurice Cheeks (we
should've seen that coming with the name,
anyway) just took a team that had lottery
talent to six games in a first-round series
with the Detroit Pistons, the most dominant
Eastern Conference team the past couple
years. Cheeks is a friendly players' coach
and won't sit there yelling at UF's former
big man, making the 6-foot-10 man feel like
a 5-foot-4 towel boy.
Philadelphia also is thin on the front
line. They've got Samuel Dalembert and
Thaddeus Young as their center and power
forward now, and Young is more of a small
forward that can just play the four spot due
to his athleticism. Besides that there's Jason
Smith and Shavlik Randolph, who has
proven why he didn't play much at Duke.
He also has a good point guard in Andre
Miller who knows how to get big men the


ball, and Andre
Iguodala is an ex-
cellent perimeter
'r defender who won't
let players drive past
him easily right to-
Brian Steele ward Speights.
Steele-ing Bases Marreese is actu-
bsteele@alligator.org ally going to ave
to learn to play
defense, and he
probably won't play much if he doesn't.
But at least he has people around him that
can play defense. Sometimes, that's half the
problem right there.
Philadelphia also has quite a bit of mon-
ey to spend in free agency and so far doesn't
appear to be targeting many big men that
would eat at Speights playing time. One
of them is defensive specialist Josh Smith,
which could make Speights life in the paint
even easier.
ESPN analyst Jay Bilas called Speights
"a really good pick in the middle of the first
round," and he's probably right. You can't
doubt his offensive array of skills, and if he
gets a good NBA strength and conditioning
coach, he might actually learn how to use
that 6-10, 250-pound frame the way an NBA
big man should.
I don't see Speights being an All-Star
- ever. But the 76ers offer him as good of a
chance as he could hope for to be the best he
can be. Maybe a starter. Maybe a substitute
off the bench. When we had our alligatorS-
ports poll before Summer B started. Almost
half of our votes said Speights would be out
of the league in five years (you guys are
harsh, by the way). But being a role player
certainly beats being out of a job.


SUMMER OLYMPICS

Runners go for gold


STAFF REPORT

Sometimes even when the first
and second times are charms, it still
holds true the third time around.
Former UF track and field
standout Hazel Clark qualified for
her third Olympic appearance on
Monday, when she won the women's
800-meter run with a time of 1:59.82.
She also participated in the 2000
Sydney Games and the 2004 Athens
Games.
"It was all about the will to win
at the end," Clark said. "This is my
third trials, third Olympic team, and
I have gotten first two times. That's a
hard thing to do in this country, so I
am very excited.
"I think we are taking a really
great team over there, and I want to
bring a medal back to this country."
Clark will join former track and
field alums Kerron Clement, Tiandra
Ponteen and Novlene Williams-Mills
in Beijing.
Clement finished second in the
finals of the men's 400-meter hurdles
on Sunday with a time of 48.36 to
qualify for his first Olympic games.
"I crossed the line, and I knew I
was an Olympian," Clement said.
"I'm just really happy to make the
team and represent the United States
to the best of my ability.
"I just wanted to get out really
hard and get going. I just kept saying
to myself, 'Just make the team, just
make the team."'


Williams-Mills ran a time of 50.11
in the finals of the 400-meter dash
to qualify for the Jamaican National
Team on Sunday.
Rising junior sprinter Calvin
Smith advanced to the finals of
the men's 400-meter dash after he
finished with a time of 45.43 in the
semifinals, good for sixth place.
"I got out pretty good and
slowed a little bit on the
second turn, but I just had to
power through."

"I felt good," Smith said. "I got
out pretty good and slowed a little
bit on the second turn, but I just had
to power through."
The finals of Smith's event will
conclude at 11:15 tonight.
Current 'track standouts Lorain
McKenzie and Kallinka Pitt each
advanced to the finals of their re-
spective events, but did not qualify.
Pitt finished eighth in the 100-meter
hurdles, and McKenzie was ninth in
the 800-meter.
Distance runner Lindsay Sundell
was unable to advance after finishing
in 19th place in the semifinals of the
women's 3,000-meter steeplechase.

the finals of the long jump with a
leap of 7.75 meters.
