SG senators call for Drayton's impeachment


* TREASURER IS INTERNING
IN NEW YORK CITY.

By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Staff Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

If some members of UF's Student
'Senate get their way, Paul Drayton's
decision to take a business intern-


ship in the Big Apple this summer
could spell the end of his career as
Student Body treasurer.
Five senators filed a resolu-
tion for Drayton's impeachment
Wednesday. Drayton has spent most
of his summer in New York City as
an intern at JPMorgan Chase.
The resolution's sponsors are
Orange and Blue Party members,
but Sen. Sam Miorelli, the docu-.


ment's author, hopes the decision to
impeach Drayton is not made along
party lines.
Miorelli'sresolutionrailsDrayton
for failing to complete office hours,
take part in several committees and
boards .or access his SG e-mail ac-
count since he headed north.
Miorelli said the glaring problem
is that Drayton knew about the
internship before swearing in and

it's illegal." :

assumed office anyway.
"He thought that we would all be
OK with him doing this," Miorelli
said. "It's outrageous. In fact, it's


illegal."
Drayton said in a telephone
interview that Miorelli's daim
about his knowledge of receiving
the internship is untrue, as are the
allegations about him not checking
his e-mail.
Drayton said the call for him to
be removed from office came as no
surprise given the controversy his

Students gather for 'Black in America'


By CHANTELLE MARCELLE
Alligator Writer

Some people watch TV as a way to
rest their minds and avoid meaningful
conversations after a hard day.
On Wednesday night, a group of UF
students gathered in frnot of the screen
for the opposite reason.
They convened in the Orange and
Brew to watch the CNN Special Report
titled "Black in America," which pre-
miered Wednesday night. The docu-
mentary explores historical and current
issues facing black Americans.
According to the CNN Web site,
the show focuses on black women and
families on Wednesday and
Student black men on Thursday.
rife The UF screening was
hosted by the Institute of
Black Culture and encour-
aged students to discuss the issues and
their relevant personal-experiences.
Part two of the program will be shown
. at the same place tonight at 8 p.m.
Anthony Crenshaw, director of the
IBC, said the idea to show the special
report developed in response to student
anticipation.
Crenshaw said the group showing
allowed students to immediately discuss
the issues raised by the documentary
and to hear a wide range of viewpoints.
"It's really a neat opportunity for me
to gauge where we are as a campus as it
relates to people's knowledge of the top-
ics," he said.
Crenshaw said he is excited about
the chance to explore how "Black in
America" relates to UF through stu-
dents' reactions.
Students can send questions or com-
ments for the UF discussion by e-mail
in order to participate in the discussion

Police aim to


curb gangs

By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Writer

Are Gainesville summer programs decreas-
ing tension among neighborhood gangs?
Depends whom you ask.
City and county officials as well as local
police have been working since June to reduce
violence among neighborhood youth gangs
by hosting activities that build trust in law
enforcement.
Some claim efforts have been fairly success-
ful and that crimes committed by teens appear
to be decreasing or stagnant.
Others say the programs.
are a good attempt at curb-
ing teen violence, but it
remains a growing, serious
problem.
Gainesville Police
scott Department Capt. Lonnie
Scott and retired Gainesville
Police Capt. Tony Jones helped develop
"Operation Respect Yourself" earlier in the
summer to offer activities they hoped would
help decrease juvenile crime during students'
time away from school.
The main goal of the program is to end the
summer with the same number of teens alive
as in the beginning, Scott said.
Besides keeping people alive, he said, GPD
hopes to teach teens how to peacefully resolve
conflicts and to understand they will be held

UF ADMINISTRATION

UF cautious about earnings


By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Writer

UF administrators were warned
to be prudent in their plans to use
money from the university's en-
dowment funds despite positive
investment returns this year.
Paul Robell, head of the UF
Foundation, advised UF admin-
istrators in a Tuesday memo that
although endowment fund invest-
ments earned 3 percent in the last
fiscal year, a surprise in light of the
struggling economy, they should
plan how they will use endow-
ment funds carefully because of
the "volatile" investment market.
The amount of money that will
be available to spend in the future
cannot be guaranteed, he wrote.
UF's endowment is donor-re-
stricted, meaning donations go to
the. scholarships, professorships
and research earmarked by the
donor.


A percentage of each donation
is invested, and the returns from
the investment go back into the
endowment pool to ensure that
the fund never runs out. The re-
maining portion is the "spending
base," which is calculated quar-
terly. Each year, 4 percent of the
spending base
goes toward
whatever the
donor intended.
The founda-
tion increased
the spending
base from 85
Robell percent to 90
percent in
February, which freed $2.4 million
meant to lighten the burden of
budget cuts on colleges.
Robell wrote that the spending
base will not increase this quarter,
and there is no guarantee that it
will increase again because of de-
clining markets.


"If investments don't do well,
negative adjustments are .very
possible," Robell said in a phone
interview.
However, it would take a
long-term, downward trend in the
market to have significant effects
on UF scholarships and professor-
ships, said Leslie Brain, associate
vice president of the foundation.
The 3 percent investment re-
turn for the 2007-2008 fiscal year,
which ended June 30, was surpris-
ing because the UF Investment
Corporation, which oversees
the university's investments, set
negative 7 percent as the goal for
investment returns in light of the
dismal market, Brain said.
Smart investments saved UF
from negative returns for last
year, she said, unlike Florida State
University, which reported a nega-
tive 3 percent investment return.
"It's much better than we all
expected," she said.


Religious group to


congregate at UF


Thousands of Jehovah's
Witnesses will congregate on
campus this weekend to attend
an annual regional convention
held at the O'Connell Center.
The event will kick off Friday
and extend through Sunday.
The convention will repeat next
weekend beginning Aug. 1.
"It's a little too large for us
all to fit in one weekend," said
Warren Behr, a spokesman for
the Christian Congregation of
Jehovah's Witnesses.
This year's theme is "Guided
by God's Spirit," according to a
news release.
About 7,000 people are ex-
pected to attend each weekend
from the 117 congregations serv-
ing southern Georgia and north-
ern Florida, according to the


release. They will come for three
days of talks, lectures, songs and
dramatizations, Behr said.
A full-costume drama will be
performed on Sunday, he said.
The Gainesville convention
is one of 305 in 76
On cities nationwide,
Campus which began in
May and will
continue through September,
according to the release.
This is the third year the
event will be held in the
O'Connell Center because of its
"great atmosphere" and abil-
ity to accommodate so many
people, Behr said.
Sessions will begin at 9:20
a.m. each day and are free and
open to the public.

Rec director details Southwest, Wauburg upgrades


* SOUTHWEST'S EXPANSION
WILL COST $16 MILLION.

By VICTORIA WINKLER
Alligator Contributing Writer

It's not often students can
power a room just by working
up a sweat, but that's one of the
goals David Bowles7 director of
Recreational Sports, has in mind
for renovations to Southwest
Recreation Center.
The gym's $16 million renova-
tions were presented at Tuesday
night's UF Student Senate meet-
ing by Bowles, one of the night's
guest speakers.
Plans are in the works, Bowles
said, to acquire cardio machines
- mainly elliptical machines
for now that are retrofitted
to convert the work done by the
machines' users into energy to
run the building's utility grid.
He said energy would no lon-
ger be emitted as heat, so there
would be less need to air condi-
tion the room.
In addition, the new system
would provide electricity.
Bowles said other plans for the
gym include adding more cardio
space and equipment and more
strength-training equipment.
Additional elliptical ma-


chines, treadmills, bikes, steppers
and an activity room that will al-
low about 25 more group classes
a week will also be added as part
of the expansion.
"We're talking about going
from around 15 treadmills to 50
treadmills or more," he said.
Bowles said an architect for
the expansion will be selected
next week, and construction
,should begin by April.
He said he hopes to reopen the
gym new furnishings and all
- by spring 2011.
Bowles said the space that is
currently the cardio room will be
converted into the athletic- and
personal-training studio, which
will provide athletic-training
services, fitness assessment and
massage therapy, an announce-
ment well received by the audi-
ence.
The expansion will include a
one-eighth-mile jogging track on
the second floor.
Bowles said the department
is considering creating some-
thing similar to an all air-condi-
tioned track at the University of
Alabama at Birmingham, which
goes outside the building and
comes back in to provide a nice
environment for joggers.
Bowles also discussed plans
for renovations at Lake Wauburg,


which include adding a leader-
ship and retreat center to its
South Park.
The new facility will have two
floors and enough room for up to
78 people to sleep inside.


It will also have a kitchen on
each floor to accommodate cater-
ers.
Bowles said an architect has
evaluated the plans, and the
.building could achieve the top


certification for sustainability.
"We want to make it more ac-
tive, open it up and give better
views to the lake. We want to be
able to better utilize that space,"
he said.

UF researchers aim to improve military computer chips


Chips would help communications


By TRAVIS PILLOW
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF will begin a research program today
that will aim to develop more reliable
computer chips for military communica-
tions and radar.
The Center for a 21st Century Approach
to Electronic Reliability, based in the
College of Engineering, will host represen-
tatives from the U.S. Navy and Air Force at
its day-long kickoff meeting.
Mark Law, the center's principle investi-
gator, said the center, funded by a $6.5 mil-
lion grant from the Department of Defense
Air Force Office of Scientific Research, will
investigate why the military's computer


chips have been failing recently.
Unlike standard computer chips, which
are made from silicon, military chips are
made from aluminum gallium nitride.
Law said the center will use its faculty's
expertise in both standard and military-
style chips to help make the technology
more reliable.
"Blending those two areas of research
is what helped us win this contract," he
said.
- The chips are comparable to the an-
tennas attached to cell phones, he said,
because they help amplify signals sent by
radar and communications equipment.
The military's newest generation of
chips is designed to handle high-frequen-


cy signals.
Signals with higher frequencies are
able to transmit .more data, he explained,
likening the concept to high-speed wire-
less Internet.
The chips could allow the air- and land-
based radar systems and communications
satellites to transmit larg-
er images over greater
distances.
The five-year
Multidisciplinary
University Research
Initiative will bring to-
Anderson gether faculty in electri-
cal engineering, chemical
engineering and materials science, as well
as 18 doctoral students.
Timothy Anderson, associate dean for


research of the College of Engineering,
said earning a federal government re-
search grant is competitive.
A small percentage of the proposals
submitted by universities roughly one
in five typically gets approved, he said.
In March, the Department of Defense's
MURI program gave more than $200 mil-
lion in research grants to 64 universities.
Law said universities receiving MURI
grants for similar research included the
Ohio State University, the University of
Michigan, North Carolina State University,
Vanderbilt University, the University
of California-Santa Barbara and the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
That puts UF in good company among
nationally recognized research institu-
tions, he added.


STUDENT LIFE

UF pilot program collects, donates used apartment goods


By CHRISTINA McGINLEY
Alligator Contributing Writer

This month, some Gainesville
charities will find that the best
donations are only a Dumpster
dive away.
Rather than throwing away
used furniture, electronics and
other goods, people moving out
of their apartments can now toss
them into a donation Dumpster at
Bivens Cove Apartments.
Created by UF's Center for
Leadership and Service, this pilot
program for off-campus apart-


ment donations began July 21 in
the Bivens Cove parking lot.
The donations include anything
from large furniture to smaller
belongings, which can be left in
categorized boxes under a white
tent.
Andrew Perrone, assistant di-
rector for the center, came up with
the idea in spring after some UF
students showed interest in help-
ing local apartment complexes
donate old or forgotten furniture
from residents who had moved
out.
They called a few complexes to


"We thought we would be
helping donation drives
rather than thinking up
our own."
Andrew Perrone
assistant director of UF's Center
for Leadership and Service

see what programs were available
only to find that none existed.
"We thought we would be help-
ing donation drives rather than
thinking up our own," Perrone


said.
The students developed their
own project to collect donations
during the last weeks of July. Mike
Still, property manager of Bivens
Cove, was willing to give their
idea a try.
Perrone said the donations
will be picked up from non-profit
organizations in Gainesville, such
as the Alachua County Coalition
for the Homeless and Hungry,
Christians Concerned for the
Community and a program at
Gainesville High School.
So far, the drive has .collected


clothing, shelving units, picture
frames, pots and pans, and even a
whole three-bedroom apartment's
worth of furniture courtesy of
Cobblestone Apartments.
Bivens Cove is the only proper-
ty involved in this project for now,
but Perrone said they already have
other complexes interested if their
program continues next year.
Still said other Paradigm
Properties are encouraged to bring
unwanted furniture their residents
may have left for the cause.
The project will last until July 31
in correlation, with leases ending.

Gasoline thefts on the rise in Alachua County


By LEAH SOUTHERN
Alligator Contributing Writer
Locking your gas cap could become as
important as locking your car doors.
Gasoline theft is increasing in Alachua
County due to soaring gas prices, said Art
Forgey, public information officer for the
Alachua County Sheriff's Office.
Approximately two to three incidents
are reported each week, Forgey siid. A
year ago, none were reported.
He said gas theft has been reported
throughout Alachua County, and no
specific area has been more affected than
others.
Sheriff's office reports show that drill-
ing holes into gas tanks and draining the
fuel into cans has been common because
it's easier and less conspicuous than si-


phoning, which involves putting a short-
hose into the gas cap and sucking fuel
out.
Trucks and SUVs are more suscep-
tible to drilling and draining because their
height provides better access to the gas
tank, Forgey said.
"I'd never heard of it before, but
I guess I can see why people are
doing it now.",
Maria Burnes
UF student

In addition to being criminal, drilling
into a tank causes the gas to leak onto the
ground, which creates environmental and
fire hazards, he said.
Areas prone to gas theft are large park-


ing lots, apartment complexes and places
where companies keep their.fleet vehicles
because the traffic makes it easy to blend
in, he said.
Forgey said people who want to pre-
vent their gas from being stolen should
park in a garage, use a locking gas cap and
park in well-lit areas with a lot of traffic.
He said drivers should also consider
keeping their cars only partially filled in
case their gas is stolen.
Maria Burnes, a speech pathology ju-
nior and SUV owner, said she has been
wary of gas theft since she heard about it
on the local news.
"I'd never heard of it before, but I guess
I can see why people are doing it now," she
said. "I can barely afford to fill up my gas
tank."
University Police Department spokes-


man Lt. Robert Wagner said there have
been no reported gasoline thefts on UF's
campus.
Wagner said it is possible thefts are
going unreported or happening without
people's knowledge.
Forgey said the sheriff's office is trying
to teach people about the threat.

Forgey said gas theft used to be some-

"The high price, of gas and the down-

Editorial
When it hasn't been raining, it's been hot as Hades in the
center of The Gator Nation this week. As the dog days of sum-
mer sprint onward at break-neck speed, we at the Department
of Darts and Laurels would like to advise our loyal readers to
stay hydrated and keep cool. Heat stroke shouldn't be taken
lightly and neither should this week's blazing edition of...



Darts & Laurels
First up, we send a have-you-no-decency-sir? DART to St.
Cloud, Fla., businessman Mike Meehan, for using advertising'
billboards in the Orlando area to reopen and pour salt on the
slowly healing wounds inflicted on Sept. 11. In a shameless
attempt to politicize the murder of 3,000 fellow Americans,
Meehan's billboards read "Please Don't Vote for a Democrat,"
alongside an image of the World Trade Center burning after
the insidious and cowardly terrorist attacks of that unspeak-
ably heart-wrenching September day. Over the years, we have
developed an immunity to polarizing and despicable political
statements, but this level of poisonous rhetoric goes far beyond
the pale. Meehan's crass arid low-class advertising stunt lends
new meaning to the term "bodily orifice." The magnitude of
Meehan's gall is quite simply revolting.
As members of a journalistic enterprise, we would be the first
to recognize anyone's right to free speech, even if that speech is
odious in nature. But our constitutional rights to speech do not
extend to obscenity, and Meehan's political pabulum is nothing
short of-obscene in our view. He should have the decency to
remove his hate speech immediately.
It's almost impossible for anyone to stoop to Meehan's level
of depravity, but our next contestant comes pretty damn dose.
For our next dose of opprobrium, we chuck a here's-more-
proof-that-right-wing-radio-and-whack-jobs-go-hand-in-hand
DART to conservative talk show miscreant Michael Savage for
his unhinged verbal assault on autistic children and their fami-
lies. Here is what the deranged and morally vacuous Savage
had to say about autism: "In 99 percent of the cases, it's a brat
who hasn't been told to cut the act out."
Savage has refused to apologize for his vicious and un-
founded remarks, instead making the laughable claim that his
goal was to "boldly awaken" America to the hoax of autism.
Rather than railing against autistic children and the loving
families who care for them, perhaps the author of such great
works of fiction as "Liberalism Is a Mental Disorder" ought to
check himself into a sanitarium before his vitriolic rants induce
an apoplectic episode.
Now to the heroes.
As we at the Department of Darts and Laurels sat pensively
in our dilapidated, but cozy, headquarters, racking our brains
trying to come up with another award-winning installment of
your favorite end-of-the-week lampoon-apalooza, we reached a
startling, existential, crisis-inducing epiphany: The Orange and
Blue Party is actually doing something in Student Senate. It is,
therefore, with great pride that we offer a way-to-speak-truth-
to-power LAUREL to the Orange and Blue Party senators
for filing a motion to impeach Student Body Treasurer Paul
Drayton for his failure to carry out the duties of his office. You
may recall that Drayton decided that landing a prestigious
internship in NeW York City was more important than his SG
obligations here in Gainesville.
This is apparently the first time in SG history that articles
of impeachment have been presented against an SG official.
While we have no delusions about the passage of this measure
- Drayton is a member of the Gator Party, which controls the
Senate with an iron fist we thank the opposition party for
their efforts at holding our elected student leaders accountable.
Last but not least, we offer a how-bout-those-Florida-com-
munity-colleges? LAUREL to the administrations, faculties
and students at Florida's community colleges for producing
the most associate degrees in the country for the sixth consecu-
tive year. How's that for a dynasty?
We view this as further evidence that Florida's community
colleges must retain their unique and integral role in our state's
education system. That is, they should not be transformed from
stellar two-year colleges into mediocre four-year institutions, as
Gov. Crist's Florida College System threatens to accomplish.

Column

Deregulation led to.
She fact that most of us don't hold a mortgage, work a
f full-time job or have kids to support makes it pretty
Easy to ignore the current economic crisis. It doesn't
help that for all but a few of us, economics is more boring
than an episode of "Book TV" on C-SPAN 3 featuring an
interview with Alan Greenspan.
To help put it in layman's terms, I'll turn to our country's
finest wordsmith, George W. Bush, who put it like this, "Wall
Street got drunk ... It got drunk, and now it's got a hang-
over." That's right, like a freshman at a frat party, Wall Street
got drunk, and now the average American is paying for its
hangover.
The most recent episode of economic binge drinking re-
sulted in the near-collapse of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae
- which hold about half of America's mortgages and the
collapse of banking giant IndyMac in California. Both Freddy
and Fannie had to be bailed out by the federal government
in order to prevent shock waves from spreading throughout
the entire economy.
But despite this sobering news, the Republican Party
kept spirits high by providing yet even more hilarity. Sen.
John McCain's economic guru Phil Gramm had this to say
about Americans' attitudes toward the economy: "We have
sort of become a nation of whiners." That's right, America,
don't come crying to the federal government unless you're a
multi-billion dollar mortgage lender in which case it will
be happy to bail you out. Besides, as Gramm went on to say,
these aren't real economic problems you're experiencing.
We're merely in a "mental recession."
These statements provide a great opportunity to take a
look at Gramm, his relationship with McCain and the poli-
cies they espouse. The McCain-Gramm love story started
back in 1993 when the two joined forces to defeat Hillary
Clinton's "socialist" health care plan. In 1996, McCain served
as national chairman of Gramm's failed presidential bid.
Gramm's biggest accomplishment in the Senate was


I


economic hangover
repealing regulations set in place
after the Great Depression, regula-
tions that were meant to prevent the
types of unscrupulous investments
that caused the greatest economic
collapse in American history. As a
Brandon Sack result of Gramm's legislation, these
r o underhanded investments have re-
Ietters@alligator.org surfaced in the form of the subprime
mortgage crisis.
While it would be asinine to support a presidential candi-
date who offers nothing but the same old recipe for economic
disaster, it would be foolish to delude ourselves with the no-
tion that either candidate truly puts our interests first.
When it comes to the subprime mortgage debacle, the
other guy running for president isn't exactly squeaky dean
either. A former member of Sen. Barack Obama's vice-presi-
dential search committee and his current campaign finance
chairwomanboth have ties to companies that were allegedly
involved in predatory lending.
Most of all, we need to understand deregulation doesn't
work. History teaches us that a prosperous economy needs
the checks and balances of rational government regulation.
The most salient example of this principle is, of course, the
Great Depression, the unholy spawn of laissez-faire capital-
ism. If that weren't enough to teach us our lesson, there is
the Reagan administration's pandering to the ultra rich in
the form of deregulation policies and massive tax cuts that
contributed to the recession of the early 1980s.
The moral of the story is this: Investors are good at mak-
ing a quick buck, not ensuring the long-term health of the
economy. I wasn't around for the Great Depression, but my
grandpa tells me it wasn't very fun. If McCain and his pals
have it their way, our generation may just get the chance to
experience those hardships first-hand.

Letters to the Editor
Give CHOICES program chance to succeed
In his July 22 column, Joshua Simmons illogi-
cally reasoned that low enrollment numbers in
the CHOICES program could only mean that
the program is "exactly the wrong model of
health care" for Alachua County's working poor.
What Mr. Simmons has failed to consider is that
low enrollment numbers may be a symptom of
other problems, such as citizens simply being
unaware of the program. Many social programs
take a few years to get off the ground. This seems
to be the case with CHOICES.
For example, County Commissioners
Cynthia Chestnut'and Paula DeLaney, along
with many of those involved with administer-
ing the CHOICES program, have stated that low
enrollment numbers could be partly attributed
to a lack of awareness. This belief is corroborated
by the fact that CHOICES experienced a surge
in enrollment following a television campaign
last year. More advertising campaigns are in the
works.
CHOICES is only four years old and is ad-
mitiedly a work in progress, but it is an excel-
lent program designed to address many of the
problems associated with lack of insurance for
lower-income citizens.
CHOICES improves access to primary care,
reduces strains on local emergency rooms and
improves the health of the local population.
Before we completely scrap the program,
maybe we should take a deep breath and see


what wecan do to fix the glitches and improve
implementation. You don't total a car because it
has a flat tire.

Alligator coverage of Sen. Michel one-sided
I'm writing in response to Victoria Winkler's
article about the Student Senate's decision to
expunge Sen. Matt Michel's absences, which ap-
peared in the July 17 edition of the Alligator.
As a student senator who voted to approve
the Rules and Ethics Committee's recommenda-
tion to remove Sen. Michel's absences, I didn't
find the rationale behind this decision to be as
evident in the article as the opposition's com-
plaints. I feel strongly that the best interests of
.the student body were served by keeping Sen.
Michel in the Student Senate.
As a hardworking senator, Sen. Michel con-
tinued serving his constituents while completing
a required study abroad program. He interacted
with his constituents, advertised open Student
Government positions on Listservs and worked
on legislation.
While it wasn't considered in his appeal, I'd
like to point out that Sen. Michel possesses a
spotless attendance record for all Senate meet-
ings prior to his required study abroad trip.
The opposition's contention that the Rules and


Ethics Committee's decision would create a
flawed precedent for future cases is unfounded,
as this and all attendance appeals are thoroughly
reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
While it was certainly not an ideal situa-
tion, Sen. Michel encountered an unavoidable
academic commitment yet remained dedicated
to his-constituents. I am confident that denying
his appeal and removing him from the Senate
would have been more detrimental to his con-
stituents, the Senate and the student body as a
whole than our decision to allow him to retain
his seat.

Alligator misunderstands "time horizon"
It appears that the Alligator editorial board
has had some difficulty in understanding the
difference between a "timetable" and a "general
time horizon." I would like to make an attempt
to clarify these terms.
A timetable is an arbitrary, artificial plan for
withdrawal that does not take into account the
realities on the ground. A specific withdrawal
date would encourage insurgent forces to with-
hold their attacks until after U.S. troops are gone.
After this arbitrary withdrawal, the country will
almost certainly plunge into chaos followed by


THURSDAY, JULY 24, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 7


the establishment of an Iranian puppet state
similar to Syria.
A general time horizon, on the other hand, is
a conditional withdrawal of US. forces that does
not have a precise, arbitrary date but instead
seeks to remove U.S. troops only after a broad
period of time has passed during which condi-
tions have stabilized.
I don't blame the Alligator for feeling con-
fused; it has become common for our politicians
to be purposely ambiguous when it comes to
their policy proposals. For example, take Barack
Obama's statements on Iraq.
In a 2004 interview, Obama said this about a
timetable for withdrawal: "We've got to make
sure that we secure and execute the rebuild-
ing and reconstruction process effectively and
properly, and I don't think we should have an
artificial deadline when to do that." But in 2007,
Obama said, "Let me be dear There is no mili-
tary solution in Iraq, and there never was. The
best way to protect our security and to pressure
Iraq's leaders to resolve their civil war is to im-
mediately begin to remove our combat troops.
Not in six months or one year now."
Isn't calling for the beginning of troop with-
drawals now, when the reconstruction process is
incomplete, tantamount to an artificial deadline?
I wonder if the Alligator is also scratching their
heads over Obama's "political-speak"

Slow economy leaves many UF students jobless


* THE STUDENT JOB MARKET IS
NOT EXPECTED TO IMPROVE SOON.

By JENNA LANIA
Alligator Writer
A city with no "help wanted" signs, zero
classified ads and no applications.'A desk
covered in backed-up bills and a car with
an empty tank of gas. A passing dream of a
loyal paycheck.
And still no callbacks, no interviews and
no money.
That is what this summer has felt like
for many Gainesville students desperate
for jobs. Due to the current downturn in
Florida's economy, many students can't
find work this summer.
Economist and UF professor David
Denslow said Florida's economic activity
started declining in March 2008.
"Florida, though maybe not the nation,
is in a recession," Denslow said.
He said the economic status is not sea-
sonal, and Florida will be in the recession
'for another year.
Several factors have led to the current
economic condition, including the credit
crunch, the collapse of the housing boom
and soaring gasoline and food prices,
Denslow said.
With the recession taking its toll on the
economy, most people use their money for
necessities.
"People aren't eating out as much,"
Denslow said. "They aren't buying as many


appliances and cars, and they are cutting
back on other expenditures as well."
With less money being spent, many
businesses can no longer afford to hire new
staff.
They choose to pay pre-existing em-
ployees rather than take on the liability of
training transient students.
Struggling to find work is something
Maxx Mann, a UF health science junior,
suffered with for a whole year.
Mann has three years of experience bus-
sing tables and two years serving.
He started applying for jobs at the end
of last summer. Mann applied to 20 busi-
nesses, including 10 this summer, and was
turned down by every one.
College students who need money vast-
ly outnumber available jobs, he said.
"Then you've got to factor in the avail-
ability of Gainesville residents that are in
town, and we're all competing for jobs with
them," he said.
Mann finally found a job as a restaurant
server in early July.
But not without patient persistence.
Competition from new students can
make finding a job even more difficult.
During UF's summer A/C term, 122
more students registered this year than last
year, and 434 more students registered for
the summer B term, said Mary Ann Hagler,
associate registrar for the Office of the
University Registrar.
Roy Reid, a UF theater junior, started
applying for a summer job in early June.
Reid said the fact that there are fewer


students in Gainesville during the sum-
mer means businesses do not have to hire
as many employees, making it that much
harder to find a job.
"A lot of students go home, and there
are a lot of students that are in Gainesville
that are looking for jobs, so there's not just
this giant mass for them to serve," he said.
He planned on getting a part-time job in
his spare time from performing in a play.
But by the time the show ended at the
start of summer B, he still had not found
a job.
"We definitely notice a lot more re-
turns, less people in the store and
people spending less money."
Jennie Gorman
The Factory Card & Party Outlet assistant
manager

Reid was one more drop in the pool of
unemployed students in Gainesville.
The Factory Card & Party Outlet, located
in Butler Plaza, received more than 200 ap-
plications this summer and hired only five,
said Assistant Manager Jennie Gorman.
Gorman, who has worked at the store
for eight years, said the number of hires
this summer was significantly lower than
previous summers, and she has seen the
impact of the current economy on the
store.
"We definitely notice a lot more returns,
less people in the store and people spend-


ing less money," she said.
Another business feeling the weight of
the recession is The Gelato Company, locat-
ed downtown on Southeast First Avenue.
Manager Monique Lara said July is usu-
ally the slowest month of the year for most
businesses, but she has sensed the impact
of the economic downturn for a while.
"Every month this year has been a little
slower than last year," Lara said.
The Gelato Company has also lost
business .because the city has cut back on
downtown activities near the shop, and
businesses that used to cater from the store
have also cut funds, Lara said.
All of these issues equate to hard times
for students looking for a job.
Lara said the store has only hired one
person out of more than 25 applicants this
summer.
Despite the setbacks, Lara said the store
continues to make a good profit.
Tim Darnell, owner of downtown res-
taurant Flaco's Cuban Bakery and Coffee,
said he hasn't seen the restaurant losing
business due to the recession, but he has
received more applications this summer
than last.
Darnell hired three people from more
than 30 applications.
And this trend is likely to continue,
Denslow said.
"Unfortunately, I doubt the job market
for students will clear up in the fall," he
said. "There'll be some seasonal relief as
students return to school but not a lot."

Deputies bag up fake fashions in merchandise bust


* MORE THAN 180 ITEMS WERE
CONFISCATED FROM A LOCAL HOTEL.
By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Writer

It's not every day Alachua County
deputies drive to the jail with Kate Spade,
Christian Dior and Louis Vuitton in their
backseat.
But after the "largest recent find" of
counterfeit merchandise in the county dur-
ing the weekend, sheriff's office spokes-


man Art Forgey said designer names are
now on law enforcement's radar.
"We haven't pursued these kinds of
crimes very aggressively in the past,"
Forgey said. "This incident has really
thrust the crime more into the spotlight."
Forgey said a woman had the merchan-
dise on display for sale in a hotel meeting
room.
He said someone let the sheriff's of-
fice know about the merchandise, and an
investigator from a high-end fashion com-
pany verified the articles were fakes.
If they had been legitimate, the items


would' have been valued at more than
$120,000, he said.
Deputies bagged 186 fake items featur-
ing 15 designer names.
Forgey said the purses, wallets, jewelry
and sunglasses are sitting in
the sheriff's office evidence
Local room and will be destroyed
News when the case is closed.
He said the case has been
handed to the State Attorney's Office,
which will determine whether the woman
caught with the merchandise will be
charged.


Deputies could not release the woman's
name because she has not been charged,
Forgey said.
The sheriff's office released .a notice
about the find on Tuesday with a photo of
the purses and wallets piled on the floor
where they were found at the SpringHill
Suites owned by Marriott, located at 4155
SW 40th Blvd.
Patty Johnson, hotel assistant general
manager, said hotel staff didn't realize the
woman's merchandise was counterfeit,
and once managers found out, they asked
the woman and her assistant to leave.

City to host ADA expo


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Staff Writer
adudash@alligator.org

Both the city and county Equal
Opportunity Offices have planned
a day full of vendors, exhibits and
support groups to celebrate the
anniversary of the 1990 Americans
with Disabilities Act, which
prohibits discrimination against
people with disabilities.
The Fourth Annual Americans
with Disabilities Act Expo is be-
ing held today at Sidney Lanier
School, 312 NW 16th Ave., from 11
a.m. to 4p.m.
Rodney Bickel, equal opportu-
nity specialist for Gainesville, said
people are traveling from Orlando
and Tallahassee to participate.
Both offices started planning
for the event about five months
ago.
The expo will cost less than
$4,000, including advertising and
food, Bickel said.
"We do it on a shoestring bud-
get, that's for certain," he said.
More than 20 vendors will
attend, including the Alachua
County Supervisor of Elections and
the UF Americans with Disabilities


Act Compliance Office.
The expo has grown from 50
visitors four years ago to an an-
ticipated 250 this year, said Jackie
Hart-Williams, Alachua County
Equal Opportunity program spe-
cialist.
UF students will provide as-
sistance to people with disabilities
who visit the expo, Bickel said.
"We do it on a shoe-
string budget, that's for

The 17 volunteers are students
from an Exceptional People
class, which is taught by Mary
Ann Nelson, a lecturer in the UF
Department of Special Education.
Nelson said she hopes her
students develop lasting relation-
ships with the people they assist
at the expo.
"You get comfortable around
people with disabilities, and you
start to see them as people and
strike up some friendships," she
said.

ON CAMPUS

4-H high schoolers


spend week at UF


Hundreds of high school
students led by scrambled clues
scoured UF's campus Wednesday
morning for laminated clovers af-
fixed to UF landmarks.
Their campus trek was part
of a scavenger hunt featured in
this year's annual Florida 4-H
Congress, which started Monday
and ends Friday. As participants in
the Congress, more than 350 high
school students compete in skilled
activities and learn about sustain-
able practices, which is this year's
theme.
Students attended seminars
and workshops about environ-
mentally friendly topics, said
Lynnelle Mays, the event's spokes-
woman. Some speakers are fac-
ulty from UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences, which
serves as headquarters for the state
4-H office.
At the Congress, students com-


pete in categories such as public
speaking, fashion design and
cooking demonstrations to show-
case their skills.
Students have advanced from
county and district level 4-H
events to compete at the state level,
Mays said.
The event allows participants
to mheet other high school students
from all around the state. Fifty-six
of Florida's 67 counties are repre-
sented, she said.
Katrina Gaura, an 18-year-old
high school senior from Miami-
Dade County, made a cornflower-
blue-and-white dress for the fash-
ion competition. Gaura modeled
her creation, demonstrated how.
she constructed it and took a test
on her skills as a designer and
seamstress.
"It's not all fun and games,"
she said.

Kellie Dale, Student Senate president, said
this is the first time an SG executive officer has
been subjected to impeachment charges.
Dale said it is still undecided when the .
resolution will be voted on or what the special


meeting's format will be because there is no
case to serve as a precedent. A two-thirds vote

replacement senators filling in for spring seats
is needed to suspend Drayton from office.

to permanently remove Drayton. In the trial,
a three-fourths vote is required by senators

Drayton appointed a new chief financial of-
ficer, Rene Medina, to act as a liaison between


him and the SG office when he announced his
departure May 27.

Survey: Back-to-college spending expected to drop


By EMILY BLAKE
Alligator Contributing Writer

With the national price of gas av-
eraging $4.06 per gallon, college stu-
dents may find themselves short on
cash for their annual back-to-school
shopping spree.
Back-to-college spending is
expected to drop 7 percent this
year, according to a National Retail
Federation survey released Tuesday.
The survey found that the av-
erage college student will spend
$599.38 down from last year's
average of $641.56 on discre-
tionary back-to-school items such
as clothing and electronics. Money
spent on textbooks was not included
in the calculations because it is a
non-discretionary purchase.
"Because gas prices are so high,
college students have been affected
substantially and will be focusing
more on the necessities," said Ellen
Davis, the federation's spokeswom-
an. "They're learning that when
economy is struggling, they have to
pull back on things."
Davis said the poor part-time job
market has also given students less
money to spend freely.
Many UF students said they
have already started cutting back on
unneeded items and focusing more


on the bare essentials.
Dena Ditzel, a UF freshman, said
the amount of money she spends on
gas and food makes her trips to the
Oaks Mall a lot less enjoyable.
"Nowadays, if I don't need it,
I'm a lot less likely to buy it," Ditzel
said.
Steven Kim, executive education
director of UF's Center for Retailing
Education and Research, said he ex-
pects students to spend less money
on expensive merchandise and
more at discount stores this year.
According to the survey, 73
percent of consumers are expected
to shop at discount
National retailers for their
News back-to-school
merchandise. Kirn
said shoppers could expect higher
discounts and earlier markdowns
as a result.
"People will really be shopping
hard for the bargains, and retailers
are going to have to respond," Kirn
said.
Although college students will
be cutting back substantially, Davis
said parents with school-aged chil-
dren are expected to spend almost
6 percent more on school supplies
because parents are setting aside a
portion of their tax rebates and mak-
ing educational investments.


A student walks by school supplies in the UF Bookstore Wednesday afternoon. Back-to-college spending is
expected to drop 7 percent this year, according to a National Retail Federation survey released Tuesday.


Because college students don't "There's no use in going shop-
have the money to make such ping anymore," said Charice
investments, many have resorted Ductant, a UF psychology junior.
to cutting out shopping for new "I'd rather spend my money on
threads altogether. food and gas."


Curtis Piorun, a UF history ju-
nior, agreed.
"With the prices of gas so high,
clothing has become optional,"
Piorun said.


Activities try to keep local kids out of gangs, deter juvenile violence

accountable for their actions.
Scott said he thinks the level of violence
has decreased.
Although heated rivalries among
neighborhoods still exist, he said he thinks
problems are in an infancy stage.
"We've turned the temperature down
on the conflict," he said. "This isn't L.A.
We do have gangs, but we don't have
the Bloods and Crips going to war in the
streets."
The program has hosted two pool par-
ties, a dance and a football camp. Scott
said the events attracted mostly east
Gainesville residents between ages 12 and
19.
Future events include a car show, a sec-
ond dance and a rap contest.


More than 700 teens came to the dance
at Citizens Field two weeks ago, which
was co-sponsored by radio station Magic
101.3, he said.
Scott said the night was successful de-
spite a fight that started afterward outside
the dance.
Four teens and one adult were arrested
for charges including resisting arrest with-
out violence.
GPD gang investigator James McCollum
said the fact that a fight erupted outside an
activity meant to deter violence suggests
the problem can't be solved with only
camps And car shows.
The fight shows that there are some
young people out there willing to turn any
situation into a negative one, McCollum
said.
. "These events are a good idea,"
McCollum said. "But teenage violence is


still escalating, and gangs are still growing
and spreading."
McCollum said he could not comment
further on increased gang activity because
he is involved in an ongoing investigation
into new and existing gangs in the area.

"Everything comes back to the
family."
James McCollum
GPD gang investigator


The cause of these issues is more com-
plicated than lacking youth activities, he
said.
"Everything comes back to the fam-
ily," he said. "The families have to want
change, and they have to be as proactive
as the police."
Jones, who acts as a community liaison


and helped organize the dance and other
summer youth programs, said he agrees
that families have to be a part of the ef-
forts.
He said summer programs are more of
a first step than a final solution toward
decreasing teen violence.
It is too early to tell what the program's
long-term impact will be on the commu-
nity, he said.
Jones was one of a group of citizens who
created Heat Wave, a basketball league for
families who can't afford to send their kids
to summer camp.
About 150 teens are enrolled in the
camp, he said, and more than 200 people
show up on game nights.
"I'm not sure how the programs will
change the situation on the streets," he
said. "But who knows where those kids
would be if they weren't at the game?"

Heisman winner doesn't feel pressure of being football hero for Gators


TEBOW, from page 29

situations is a good example of
how less could be more.
"When the play happens,
when I'm dropping back, maybe
I don't always have to make the
big play," Tebow said. "I don't
always have to run somebody
over. Maybe I'll get down or step
out of bounds, just be smart with
the decisions that I make on the
field."
He should get some support


from a platoon of running backs
and speedy receivers who can
work from the backfield as well.
In addition to Percy Harvin,
Louis Murphy and Kestahn
Moore, Southern Cal transfer
Emmanuel Moody, Chris Rainey
and Deonte Thompson figure to
help make their quarterback's job
easier.
"I hope that happens," coach
Urban Meyer said. "Kestahn
Moore, this is the best we have
felt at running back. This is our
fourth season, and it's not even


comparable as far as work ethic,
attitude and work level at our
tailback position."
No matter how
many helpers he
has, there is another
problem for Tebow.
Football He became some-
thing of a cult hero
in 2007, and the Gators' successes
and failures will all be on him.
"I've never really been one to
worry about pressure too much,"
Tebow said. "I'm just going out
there, playing a sport that I love


and I'm very passionate about.
What pressure do I have?"
Tebow added that the fame
from his Heisman season has kept
him out of malls and big stores to
avoid being mobbed, but he did
find a refuge from all the atten-
tion overseas. He did missionary
work in the Philippines, Croatia
and Thailand, and with the ex-
ception of a few fans, it was a
quiet break.
"Most of the time, I'm not rec-
ognized for being a quarterback
or a Heisman Trophy winner or


anything like that," he said. "In
the Philippines or Thailand, the
only reason you're recognized is
because you're a white man who
is there. That's pretty cool."
In Gainesville, though, nearly
everyone recognizes him for the
Heisman-winning quarterback
he is. When asked if Tebow
could go down as the best college
football player of any era, Meyer
answered carefully.
"I got to watch what I say,"
Meyer said. "That's maybe how
I feel."


Healthy Trautwein has renewed desire to play

0-LINE, from page 29

has a team-leading 29 starts. Mike Pouncey, after
switching from offense to defense in his freshman
year, is moving back to the offensive side next to his
twin brother Maurkice at center. And flipping to right
tackle is Jason Watkins, who started all 13 games in
place of Trautwein last year.
With that group in front of him, Tebow might not
see much pressure. The rising junior quarterback was
sacked just an average of once per game last season,
and the line should get better with the return of
Trautwein.
Doctors initially told him that his stress fracture
was just a sprained ankle, so he practiced on the in-
jury for two weeks.
After complaining that the injury was still nagging
him, he finally had a CT scan to diagnose what truly
ailed him. If doctors didn't catch the stress fracture
when they did, he could have been walking with a
limp for the rest of his life.
He also had a bone spur removed from his ankle
and even traveled to Portland, Ore., to visit a Nike re-
hab complex, where they made him special corrective
cleats to get his feet realigned. But now, it's all good.
"Physically, I'm ready," Trautwein said. "I've been
healthy ever since spring ball. ...I'm stronger than I
ever was."
The time off even renewed his desire to play the
game.
"I feel like a freshman again because I haven't
played in forever," Trautwein said. "Running out of
the tunnel, being able to play in The Swamp is some-
thing that I've missed."


The offensive line should be fairly deep this sea-
son, with redshirt freshman James Wilson expected to
see some time.
Wilson was rated the No. 1 offensive guard by-
Rivals.com coming into Gainesville but only dressed
for four games last year because of knee surgeries. He
asked to transfer from the team back in February, al-
though he changed his mind a month later.
"I was so upset when he was thinking
about transferring, and I tried to talk to
him about it. I think I kind of helped him
make the right decision."
Phil Trautwein
UF left tackle

"James is one of my good- friends on the team,"
Trautwein said. "I was so upset when he was thinking
about transferring, and I tried to talk to him about it. I
think I kind of helped him make the right decision."
The two spent a lot of time together during the
2007 season, and Trautwein took on a bit of a mentor
role.
"He asks me, 'Phil, am I doing this right?'"
Trautwein said. "He even asks me, 'Can you do extra
stuff with me?'"
The mix of young talent and experience on the of-
fensive line and throughout the roster gives Trautwein
high hopes for the Gators in his final season.
"We should win the SEC every year," Trautwein
said.
"That's our goal. ...If something's your goal, and
you don't get it, you can't be happy."

Find the perfect hat to


fit your summer style

EMILE WILLIAMS + AVENUE WRITER


With temperatures hitting the 90s
most days this summer, a hat might
just become your new best friend.
This season, hats are not just meant
to be worn poolside. They can add a
touch of style to any ensemble and,
most importantly, protect your face
from the summer's harsh rays.

night out on the town. Lohan paired
her fedora with a glitzy party dress,
but Ronson kept it casual with
jeans and a button-down T-shirt,
thus proving that this style can be
dressed up or down.
However, fashion experts say fe-
doras look best on petite girls.
"If you've got a small frame,
choosing a hat that doesn't over-

The key is to hunt down hats with
small brims and crowns," says

Constructive summer on


tap for The Hold Steady


ROBERT HILSON
Life isn't fair, and you need not tell
this to The Hold Steady. In any justice-
esteeming society, 2006's critically
a4,ed "Boys and Girls in America,"
an album crammed with hook-filled
sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll throw-
backs, would have landed the band the
fanatical arena, following its unofficial
designation as the scraggly incarna-
tion of The E Street Band. Instead, they
got a few nods in year-end polls and
a billing on last year's Lollapalooza
poster that was only slightly more vis-
ible than The Fratellis.
With brooding ballads and
song titles that include "Lord, I'm
Discouraged" and "Sequestered in
Memphis," it seems these guys are
pretty fed up with the status quo.
Discount the fragile optimism ifnher-
ent in the new album's name, "Stay
Positive," as the interlocking circles on
the cover are far more telling. Maybe
the boys and girls in America weren't
listening.
And so you have to admire leader
Craig Finn's bootstrapping mind-set.
Though this collection lacks the go-
for-broke spirit of previous outings, it
reveals his group's dogged persistence
is still intact.
The fist-pumping, call-and-respond
opener, "Constructive Summer," fires
a power-chord-propelled wake-up call


* AVENUE WRITER
to everyone still not paying attention.
As the stadium-sized bombast dies
into the bridge, Finn's determined
drawl takes on pronounced resonance
with the line, "Let this be my annual
reminder/ that we can all be something
bigger." It's a typical Hold Steady lyric:
a gruffly uttered should-rhyme couplet
- charming in its resolution, empower-
ing despite itself.
Taken as a whole, the song is enough
to make you want to
pick up a guitar and
learn "Born to Run."
But the 'moments
of anthemic triumph
are fewer in this
go-round, reflecting
Stay Positive the fatiguing attri-
tion of moving in
circles. The slower tracks, especially
"Magazines" and "Slapped Actress,"
disguise a tacit admission: The mas-
sive nights, the hood rat friends and
the unified scene aren't all they're
cracked up to be.
Still, "Stay Positive" harbors a pre-
vailing stubborn hope as distinctive to
the band as any whoa-oh-oh chorus.
On the album's self-referential (be-
cause some things you gotta do your-
self) title track, Finn admits, "I get a
lot of double takes when I'm coming
around the corners." Hey, it's a start.


"The Dark Knight" no joke

ALLISON GRINER + AVENUE WRITER


The new Batman movie will leave no
one wondering, "Why so serious?"
"The Dark Knight," the second in
Christopher Nolan's Batman series,
surpasses even its predecessor as not only
a dark look into morality, but simply, im-
pressive entertainment.
After the advent of his alter ego in
"Batman Begins," Bruce Wayne (Christian
Bale) still suffers the responsibility of
being Batman. He finds both aid and
competition in the new district attorney,
Harvey Dent (Aaron
Eckhart), who is For a mov
vigilant against or- book, Nola,

Meanwhile, the appealing to a wid
Joker (Heath Ledger)
targets Batman and the government of
Gotham City to incite mayhem among
its citizens. Both humorous and horrify-
ing, every twitch of this new villain has
a creepy resonance. For a character that
claims his motives are akin to "a dog
chasing cars," Ledger's Joker is the most
satisfying and complex character.
For a movie based on a comic book,
Nolan pushes for increasing realism and
depth in every aspect of the plot. This re-
alism does not betray the original tone of
the Batman franchise but rather makes it

more appealing to a wider audience.
This Batman interpretation emphasiz-
es the political and philosophical themes
that are already present in comic books
without being heavy-handed. As we are
faced with burning fire trucks, corrupted
cops and a hero unsure of his own respon-
sibilities, the movie constantly questions
what it is to be a hero.
This is not to say the movie is all
gloom and meditation. The action arrives
in a relentless stream that keeps the pac-
ing light. Shots of

it felt forced after the
climactic confrontation with the Joker.
Christopher Nolan's new Batman film
is about expanding the comic genre to be
something more than an accumulation of
stereotypes. "The Dark Knight" pushes
all bounds of formulaic cinema to create a
film that is both shocking and inspiring.
In an exchange with his butler, Alfred,
Bruce Wayne says Batman has no limits.
As '.The Dark Knight" surpasses expec-
tations for the summer blockbuster, it
seems Nolan's series doesn't have any
limits either.

review

Avenue CD stash: Watermelons, wizards and dance


SHAW PATTON AVENUE WRITER


It is time to once again review some of the
albums that have been stacking up and spill-
ing over in the office. In the month since my
last rapid-fire review, the CDs have multiplied
like gremlins in a swimming pool. Fortunately,
the music seems less dismal than in the past
endeavor.
"My Own Personal Watermelon" by Suzy
Callahan
Like a kid in a candy store, I was attracted
to the bright colors on this album cover, the
back of the sleeve describing miniature seed-
less watermelons as part of "the small strides
in the advance of Western civilization." The
musik turned out to be as interesting as the
cover. The sounds draw the listener into a
strangely comfortable world, following the
many routes folk music tends to take without
being redundant. Callahan's voice reminds me
of a compromise between the rough prettiness
of P.J. Harvey and the alto of Joni Mitchell. The
first track starts with a twangy acoustic guitar
followed by drums and light, funky bass.
Ambient echoes add a sense of mystery. The
album continues this theme as an interesting


package of songs, but nothing ever strikes me
as brilliant.

"Prima J" by Prima J
With two attractive ladies, I knew per-
fectly well what I was getting into. Their song
"Rockstar" was a single off the "Bratz: The
Movie" soundtrack. After listening to a few
songs, I ended up watching their music videos
online so I had something visually distract-
ing. I found "Coraz6n (You're Not Alone)"
to be the funniest and most entertaining of
the videos with a combination of break-down
dances, Bambi-eyed close-ups, corny inspira-
tional messages and bad acting. Overall, the
duo falls victim to the unnaturally smooth and
robotic vocals so popular in music today. One
thing they did right was to record with execu-
tive producer Ron Fair, who has worked his
magic with countless pop stars like Christina
Aguilera, The Pussycat Dolls and Black Eyed
Peas, but that may not be enough. It is difficult
to say whether Prima J are poised for the next
Latin-tinged dance hit or if their competitors
will overshadow them.


"Immortalizer" by Valient Thorr
How could I pass up an album that has a
scythe-wielding wizard taming a flying tiger
on the cover? The biography of the band de-
scribes the members as aliens from Venus who
are visiting Earth in order to warn the planet's
inhabitants about global warming through
rock 'n' roll. Ignoring the cheesy gimmick


Overall, the duo falls victim to
the unnaturally smooth and robotic vo-
cals so popular in music today.



behind the Venusian concept, I found the mu-
sic highly enjoyable, rife with upbeat tempos
and intense, charming vocals. Valient Thorr
combines the best elements of ZZ Top and
thrash music. The music is surprisingly easy
to dance to, but like most danceable music, the
songs tend to sound similar. Although I would
not consider myself a Thorrior (what devoted
fans of the band call themselves), I did enjoy
the album.


"The Boys R Back In Town" by JEFF
the brotherhood and "Glass Elevatofr' by
MEEMAW
I am reviewing these two albums together
because the two bands are currently touring
the U.S. on a Bad Bus Tour. The first band,
JEFF the brotherhood, was all about hard
repetitive hooks the kind that crash into
your head and then rattle around once inside.
Their music is akin to the White Stripesut
is more experimental and punk. Drummer
Jamin Orrall is known for his other band, Be
Your Own Pet, but it is this band, with brother
and guitarist Jake Orrall, that rocks harder.
The two create a tight groove usually obtained
through bloodline understanding.
MEEMAW is the more consistent of the two
bands, and its music is catchier. It has a similar
sound but fleshes it out with a bluesy Rolling
Stones vibe and an abundance of melody.
JEFF the brotherhood may take a couple more
listens to fully appreciate, but MEEMAW is
much more accessible on the first go.
Through seamless heavy metal riffs and
old-school punk drumming, both bands give
the listener a sense of instant satisfaction that
only increases with number of plays. Too bad
not all of the albums had this effect.

Tebow knows where to improve for '08


Available from Commercial News Providers

\Q %41


By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

HOOVER, Ala. Tim
Tebow's success in his first
season as a starter was well
documented as he became
the first sophomore to win
the Heisman Trophy amid a
record-breaking campaign.
But nestled in all his mind-
boggling stats was a number
that doesn't sit well: four.
That's how many losses UF
suffered in 2007, three of them
by a touchdown or less, and
the Gators turned Tebow's
Heisman-winning season into
what he said was a disap-
pointing one.
Tebow, speaking from
Southeastern Conference
Media Days, said his biggest
goal for this season is improv-
ing his decision-making by
reading defenses and call-
ing audibles faster, which he
hopes will translate into more
wins.
"That's what separates you
from average to good and
good to great," he said.
Tebow had more than twice
as many rushing attempts
(210) as any of his teammates
last year and went past 20 car-
ries three times. That usage


was partly the product of a
weak running game that left
Tebow as the most reliable
rusher.
But there was another rea-
son, too. Thanks to his com-
petitive nature, Tebow has the
tendency to put all the pres-

sure on his shoulders and take
the game into his hands.
That can work well, as
it did in a win against' Ole
Miss in which Tebow rushed
27 times, or it can result in
dependency on the signal-
caller's legs, which was clear
in a loss to Georgia.
In that game, Tebow strug-
gled in the running game with
an injured right shoulder, and
the offense was clearly out of
sync.
He was hurt while taking
hit after hit during a game
against Kentucky the previous
week, when several of his 20
carries came as scrambles on
passing plays. Limiting those

LSU deals with questions at quarterback


* ANDREW HATCH IS A FORMER JV
PLAYER FOR HARVARD.

By PHIL KEGLER

HOOVER, Ala. Les Miles wants to
make it dear that his team, reigning national
champion LSU, will not be thinking of the
2008 season as a continuation of the 2007
campaign.
"We're not' defending. We're not dealing
with rankings," said Miles Wednesday at
Southeastern Conference Media Days, as
he prepares for his fourth season in .Baton
Rouge. "If you think we're defending, come
see the trophy it's in our trophy case. We
got a brand new team."
While coaches usually offer such rhetoric
after winning it all, a big question mark at
the quarterback position leaves LSU in a bit


of turmoil before it begins its quest to become
the first repeat national champion since
Nebraska in 1994-95..
With Matt Flynn, last year's starter, lost to
graduation, Ryan Perrilloux looked to be the
favorite to step right in as this year's leader
behind center. Perrilloux earned 2007 SEC
Championship MVP
'.s.,. !IlL4. 4. honors after step-
ping in for an injured
Flynn and throwing
Sfor 243 yards and a
touchdown on 20-of-
30 passing.
Instead, Perrilloux will suit up for Division
I-AA Jacksonville State this season.
He transferred there following his dis-
missal from LSU in May after numerous legal
and disciplinary problems during his time in
Baton Rouge.
That will leave Miles with three options
when the Tigers open two-a-days in little
more than a week redshirt freshman Jarrett


Lee, sophomore transfer Andrew Hatch and
incoming freshman Jordan Jefferson.
Lee and Hatch have emerged as the front-
runners for the job.
"Both guys had good springs," Miles said.
"Both guys are learning the offense. They had
an entire summer of study where the receiv-
ing core gathered them, ran the passing that
we run and really helped identify to our quar-
terbacks where they're going to be."
Hatch played junior varsity, football at
Harvard in 2005 before transferring and
walking on at LSU, eventually becoming a
scholarship player.
He has attempted two passes in his college
career which ranks him as the most experi-
enced signal-caller on the Tigers' roster.
Starting senior center Brett Helms admit-
ted the team will miss Perrilloux's athleticism
and experience.
"Anybody with that much talent you'll

HOOVER, Ala. The Gators'
offensive line is supposed to be
one of the team's best units this
year.
Strange, then, that Urban
Meyer would describe the big
men up front as UF's most under-
rated asset.
"[They're] not undervalued by
the coaching staff," Meyer said.

probably put
seven guys out
4 there that you'
a feel very com-
"I portable with ...
[The offensive
Trautwen line is] without
Trautwein question the
most under-publicized."
At Southeastern Conference
Media Days on Wednesday--:
fifth-year senior left tackle Phil
Trautwein agreed that his group
was overlooked.
"In magazines, we're not even
up, there for best offensive line,"
Trautwein said. "In my opinion,
we are. And that's what's moti-
vating us, making us better and
driving us this whole offseason.
We're ready to show people that
we're the best.
"A lot of people didn't think
[quarterback Tim Tebow] was
going to win the Heisman. He
wasn't on the list day one. We just
have to show people we're going
to be on that list at the end of the
season."
The line certainly has the talent
to perform.
The biggest boost is the return
of Trautwein, who missed all of
2007 with a stress fracture in his
right foot. Left guard Jim Tartt

30, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, JULY 24,2008


Voting starts for TitleTown, winner announced Mon.


* ESPN WILL PRESENT THE
AWARD IN PERSON.

By MIKE DIFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

UF fans are going to have to wait a
little longer to find out if Gainesville
will be named "TitleTown USA."
ESPN executives decided
Wednesday they would delay the
announcement of the winning town


until Monday.
It was originally scheduled for
Sunday at 6 p.m.
According to SportsCenter
Senior Coordinating Producer
Glenn Jacobs, the announcement
was pushed back-so ESPN could re-
turn to the winning city and present
the 3-foot tall trophy in person.
Online voting began Wednesday
night and will run through Sunday
afternoon.
The winner will be crowned live
Monday on the 6 p.m. edition of


SportsCenter.
One person that doesn't seem to
mind the additional day of anticipa-
tion is UF alum, and ESPN reporter,
Erin Andrews.
"The people in Gainesville are
just going to have to wait an ex-
tra day to get that trophy then,"
Andrews said.
"I don't know if there will be
enough room in the case though.
They might have to move around
some of those crystal balls."
Despite being one of the smaller


cities in the competition, Gainesville
had one of the largest turnouts of
any city on the show.
An estimated 700 fans showed
up for the taping.
While many fans question wheth-
er or not a smaller city can compete
with metropolises like Boston and
Los .Angeles, SportsCenter anchor
John Anderson believes the town
with the best story will receive the
most votes.
"People love the small-town
stories. It's all about the connection


with the community," Anderson
said. "That's what sports are all
about."
Anderson, a native of Green Bay,
Wis., is confident that his hometown
is the only true "TitleTown USA."
"I just want to thank the 19 run-
ners up," he said.
When asked if she felt Green Bay
was the rightful owner of the nick-
name, Andrews responded with a
nod to her favorite UF quarterback.
"I don't think Superman wears
No. 4 pajamas'," she said.

miss," Helms said.
"But you got to move on, and that's foot-
ball. We got two guys that can step up and do
big things for us, and that's what we're focus-
ing on now."
Helms declined numerous times to lean to-
ward a projected starter, but described Hatch
as more of an athletic, option-type quarterback


and Lee as more of a pocket passer with a bet-
ter deep ball.
LSU has had success with lesser-known
quarterbacks in the past, including Flynn last
year, and certainly has plenty of talent at other
positions, scoring 14 preseason All-SEC nods
from the coaches' vote.
"You've got great guys surrounding you,"
Helms said.
"Whoever it is (that wins the starting QB
job) just needs to go out and make smart deci-


"You've got great guys surrounding
you."
Brett Helms
LSU center on the inexperience at QB

sions and manage the game. With our defense
the way it is this year, it's going to be tough to
score points on us.
"The quarterback can't do too much, try to


make too many big plays. Let the playmakers
make the plays."
No matter who comes out as the top guy
this fall, Miles expects him to experience
plenty of ups and downs in the ultra-competi-
tive SEC.
"The most consistent performer, the guy
that makes the play, the guy that is least likely
to turn it over, least likely to make poor deci-
sions, that will ... allow them to get to the
field," Miles said.

Calathes adjusts to Greek life


* HE'S BEEN PLAYING ON THE
UNDER-20 TEAM.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligatororg

You know what they say, every-
thing is bigger in.. .Serbia.
At least that's what UF guard
Nick Calathes reported back to his
father, John, after playing his first
games with the under-20 Greek
team.
"He told me they were huge,"
John said. "Much bigger than the
guys he plays with at Florida."
He said Calathes estimated the
tallest player to be 7-foot-3, with
numerous other 6-foot-10 guys on
the roster.
Before, Calathes left for Greece,
he was hoping to stick with the na-
tional team and earn a roster spot
for the upcoming Olympic Games.
"It just didn't work out," John
said.
By the time Calathes got to
Greece, he was only able to practice
with-the national team once before
they left to play in Germany.
John said Calathes needed to
be overseas by June 14 in order
to get enough time with the team.
Summer A classes didn't end until
June 20, which made it much hard-
er for Calathes to seal a spot.


"He wasn't going to leave
school early and screw up his
school," he said.
Instead, Calathes has been
playing friendliess" against
various European competition in
preparation for the U20 European
Championships, which are held in
Riga, Latvia, and run from Aug.
1-10.
John expects him to be back in
the States within a day or two of
the competition ending.

"He wasn't going to leave
school early and screw up
his school."
John Calathes
Father of UF guard Nick Calathes

The Greek experience has been
difficult for Calathes at times, and
John said he got a few homesick
phone calls during Nick's first
week in his new home.
"He's getting used to the Greek
food and the guys on the team,"
he said. "Initially they had him by
himself in his hotel room, but re-
cently he got a roommate, Marios,
who speaks English and Greek."
John didn't know Marios' last
name, as there are two people
with that name on roster, but said
his bilingual skill set served as an
assist for Calathes in at least one


situation.
"He calls me up and says, 'Dad,
you're not going to believe this,"
John said.
"There's no AC in the hotel
room.'"
For two days it was boiling
hot until Marios moved in, and
Calathes informed him of the situ-
ation.
"Marios called down to the
desk because he can speak Greek,
and it turns out he had AC the
whole time," John said. "Over
there, you need to swipe a credit
card to turn it on, but Nicky had
no idea because he doesn't speak
the language."
A new dialect is just one of the
many benefits to playing basket-
ball overseas this summer.
Calathes was required to obtain
a passport, which he will have long
after leaving Riga.
John said if Calathes' NBA
dream ever comes to an end and he
wishes to continue professionally,
having a passport is a valuable tool
for sighing with a club and making
more money.
In addition to the change of cul-
ture, Calathes' summer experience
is better preparing him for a role
he might see with more frequency
next year and at the next level.
John said he's been playing point
guard almost exclusively overseas.
