For UF, 'going green' more than just a trend


Campus leads Florida universities in sustainability criteria


By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Writer

Dedee DeLongpre Johnston is
a busy woman.
Since becoming director of the


UF Office of Sustainability two
years ago, she's hardly had time
to stop and smell the greenery.
Her office in Tigert Hall is lit-
tered with brochures outlining
projects and plans to make UF


run in a more environmentally
conscious way.
S ecial DeLongpre
Report Johnston shuffled
through some fold-
ers and held out a brochure for a


Styrofoam recycling mechanism,
a project she might pursue.
Her eyebrows furrowed at the
thought of the material, which
doesn't decompose in landfills.
"It's so offensive," she said.


Navigating UF down the
path to greener pastures is what
DeLongpre Johnston's job is all
about, and with maintenance
costs rising, helping campus go
green is becoming essential.
"I would say it is a trend, and I

Gator Ride to offer bar patrons a safe route home


* SERVICE SET TO BEGIN IN OCTOBER.

Members of UF's Student Senate promoted
an effort Tuesday to help students at the
nation's No.1 party school get home safe.
Gator Ride, a student-run organization
that aims to shepherd students home after a
night on the town to prevent drunken driving,
is set to begin operating on Oct. 18, said Sen.
Steven Reiss of the senate's Student Safety
Committee.


The service will run Thursday through
Saturday, from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m.
It is free, but a donation jar will be in the
cars.
"I'm sure that nobody would have a prob-
lem donating 2 or 3 dollars as opposed to tak-
ing a taxi, which is a pain," Reiss said.
Gator Ride will provide transportation
from any bar or cub in Gainesville to any resi-
dence in Gainesville just not to another bar
or dub, Reiss said.
"They don't want to be associated with

facilitating college students in their ever-going
desire to drink," Reiss said.
To use the service, a student must show his
or her Gatorl card to prove he or she is a UF


student.
The organization will have three rented
cars adorned with identifying stickers, all
rented from Enterprise. Each vehicle will have
a male and female student from the program
present.
All of the drivers in the program will be
given instruction on basic first aid and taught
how to respond to emergencies such as alco-
hol poisoning, according to a document from
Sen. Ryan O'Mara.

Exotic dancers feel


gas prices' pinch


* CAFE RISQUE DANCERS
SEE DECLINING TIPS.

By HAILEY MAC ARTHUR
Alligator Contributing Writer

Kendra slinked off stage. She
counted the bills collected in
her lace garter once more. The
number was still the same. Five
dollars. Disappointment, disbelief
and discouragement overcame
her.
"I cried," she said, "and I never
cry."
The 5-foot-7-inch, 130-pound
exotic dancer had finished twist-
ing and twirling in black-lac-
quered, 8-inch stiletto heels for
the night.
She banks on tips and private
dances. She isn't paid an hourly
wage. It wasn't the first time she
left with a sparse amount. Kendra
has walked out of Caf6 Risque in
Micanopy three times lately with


only $7. She used to strut out of
the fully nude strip club with $200
easy, she said.
Until recently.
And Kendra has company.
More than 40 dancers and wait-
resses at the caf6 are feeling the
effects of the sagging economy.
About 90 percent of customers are
truck drivers, she
Local said, who are now
News paying nearly $5 a
gallon for diesel and
don't have much
left to spare.
"Entertainment is always the
first to go," Kendra said.
Customers are dwindling.
Private dances, which cost $30 for
5 minutes and $50 for 10 minutes,
are fleeting. Tips are worsening.
It's a fight for every dollar under
the spotlight.
Spare dollar bills are hard to
come by in the sleepy, southern

Moe's, Chili's construction to finish $300K over budget


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer

Despite being almost $300,000
over their estimated budgets, Moe's
Southwest Grill and Chili's Too are
set for their UF debut on Aug. 17.
Both Moe's and Chili's Too, a
scaled-down version of Chili's Grill
& Bar, will open on time at the
Racquet Club Dining Center, but the
addition of a new air conditioning
system and bathroom renovations
set the project over budget.
Lionel Dubay, director of UF's


Business Services Division, wrote in
an e-mail that Aramark, UF's food
service provider, funded $750,000 of
the project and the Business Services
Division paid for the remaining $1
million, including the extra costs.
UF will pay for the renovations
using the 10.4 percent commission
the Business Services Division
receives on all campus food sales,
Dubay wrote.
The two restaurants replaced six
vendors that previously occupied
the building, including Burger King
and Java City. Except for a few de-


tails, construction will be finished
on Friday, said UF's manager of the
project, Chandler Rozear.
"It makes me feel like I'm
at home."
Malvina Binjaka
UF freshman

The plan to bring Moe's to UF
began about two years ago with a
non-binding referendum that asked
students if they wanted a Moe's on
campus. The referendum was ap-


proved by almost 87 percent of the
7,000 students who voted, according
to the SG Web site.
In April 2007, Bob Miller, UF's
associate vice president of business
affairs, wrote a letter to Aramark
asking it to look into the possibility
of adding a Moe's to campus.
Tommy Jardon, a third-year law
student at UF and one of the stu-
dents who originally pushed for the
Moe's, said the restaurant's opening
proves that it's important for stu-
dents to voice their opinions.
"You don't know when, you


don't know how, but eventually
someone might just listen to you,"
he said.
The Chili's Too menu is com-
posed of appetizers, salads, soups,
burgers, sandwiches and a few sea-
sonal items, such as grilled salmon
and ribs. The Moe's menu is almost
the same as a typical version, but
there isn't a special menu for kids.
Malvina Binjaka, a UF freshman,
said she is excited about Chili's Too.
"It's my favorite restaurant,"
Binjaka said. "It makes me feel like
I'm at home."


SG, UF Bookstores to offer textbook discount Aug. 25


* DISCOUNT COMES AFTER FLORIDA
CANCELS ANNUAL TAX EXEMPTION.

In absence of this year's back-to-school
tax-free days, Student Government and UF
Bookstores will offer one day of relief to stu-
dents purchasing textbooks in the fall.
UF Bookstores is sponsoring a Textbook


Sales Relief Day by providing a 6.25 percent
discount on textbooks bought at the store from
open to dose on Aug. 25, the first day of fall
classes, according to an SG news release.
An annual nine-day exemption from
sales tax on books, clothing and school sup-
plies has been implemented in Florida since
1998, except for 2002 and 2003, in an effort to
provide relief to families with schoolchildren,


according to the Florida Senate Web site.
A bill proposing the back-to-school holiday
this year died in the House and Senate in May
due to concerns about the loss of
S dent revenue to the state government
E after budget cuts, according to
the Florida House and Senate
Web sites.
Student Body President Kevin Reilly said


SG organized the event because textbooks are
a major expense for students at the beginning
of the semester.
"We've worked very hard with the state to
pass some of the textbook reform bills they've
passed recently," Reilly said. "This is just an-
other way we can help make textbooks more
affordable to students."

Teenage chess master competes, speaks at UF


* HE'S THE NO. 2 PLAYER IN
THE U.S. FOR HIS AGE GROUP.

By VICTORIA WINKLER
Alligator Contributing Writer

In a normal setting, 20 against
one would be unfair.
Daniel Ludwig, an 18-year-old
senior chess master, walked around
the inside of the rectangle that seated
his 20 opponents of all ages.
The competition, which chess
players call a "simul," took place
in the rotunda of UF's New
Engineering Building Wednesday
following a lecture he gave in the
Reitz Union.
During his talk, he explained the
solutions to difficult chess puzzles
to a group of about 40 people. There
were oohss," "ahs" and gasps from
chess aficionados in the audience.
"This is why I play chess. Besides
all the winning and losing, it's art,
and I like to create it," Ludwig said,
referring to a particularly elegant
chess solution.
Ludwig won the 2006 U.S.
Masters Championship, and he said
he's No. 2 in the nation for his age
group.


He's been in a simul with two
other players against 150 opponents
at once, and he estimates he can play
about five opponents in what they
call blind simuls, where the player
calls out the moves and can see the
board only in his or her mind.
"He lives and breathes chess,"
said John Harris, associate professor
in electrical and computer engineer-
ing at UF and sponsor for the Gator
Chess Club.
Harris had two elementary
school age children, a son, Noah,
and daughter, Maya, in the com-
petition. Maya is the North Florida
Regional Scholastic chess champion
for the kindergarten
On age group and was the
Campus only female player in
the game.
She was one of the few players
to make Ludwig pause during the
opening rounds.
He said he considered going to
UF, among other schools, but right
now he just wants to play chess for
maybe a year or two.
However, he will soon be No. 1
for his age group in a few months
if another teenager with whom he's
neck-and-neck "would hurry up
and turn 19."


Daniel Ludwig plays chess with one of the 20 opponents he faced simultaneously at the New Engineer-
ing Building Wednesday evening.


UF ADMINISTRATION

New conduct code addresses alcohol, honor court


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Staff Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

UF officials proposed a rewrite of the
Student Conduct Code this week in efforts
to clarify UF's stance on drinking, drugs and
the future of the Student Honor Court.
The new regulations spell out bans on
students using "common source containers"
such as kegs, mini kegs and beer balls, and
they also prohibit activities such as drinking
games, keg tipping and alcohol luges.
The new regulations, posted Monday, will
need approval from the Board of Trustees,
UF's highest governing body, in September.
The regulations will be discussed by the
board's Educational Policy and Strategy
Committee Wednesday.


Chris Loschiavo, director of Student
Judicial Affairs, said these activities have al-
ways gone against UF's policy but were not
always spelled out in the conduct code.
He said UF officials discourage drinking
games because they could lead students to
make decisions that would "short circuit"
career goals, such as drunken driving and
fights.
He said generally, UF will not go after
students for having kegs off-campus un-
less the students were part of a UF group,
sorority or fraternity, or if a serious incident
occurred.
Although the revisions debuted about a
week after UF earned the title of No. 1 party
school in the nation, Lochaivo said the effort
to revise the Student Conduct Code has been
about two years in the making.


Amid the revisions is a call to take away
the Student Honor Court's ability to hear
academic dishonesty cases.
"As it stands, the honor court is
not exactly upset that we're losing
this."
Jason ZImmerman
Student Honor Court chancellor

Under the current setup, students
charged with academic dishonesty can have
their case heard by the Student Conduct
Committee, composed of students and
faculty, or the court, which is a student-run
trial hearing that is sponsored by Student
Government.


Loschiavo said the court has heard 22
cases since 2000, but there are roughly 150
academic dishonesty cases per year.
He said he hopes the court will get back
to its mission of proctoring exams and edu-
cating students about the conduct code.
Jason Zimmerman, chancellor of the hon-
or court and a second-year law student, said
the court only heard two cases last year.
Zimmerman said there is little surprise
that the court could soon lose its ability to
hear the cases after facing criticism from the
Faculty Senate.
"As it stands, the honor court is not ex-
actly upset that we're losing this," he said.
But Student Body President Kevin Reilly
said he is against the honor court losing this
ability, and he plans to speak on its behalf at
the Board of Trustees meeting.

UF law professor reflects on Obama as teacher


By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Writer

In 2001, UF law professor
Daniel Sokol was just a student
at the University of Chicago Law
School, and the now-presumptive
Democratic presidential candi-
date, Barack Obama, was just his
professor.
Well, he wasn't "just" a profes-
sor; he was also a state senator who
many assumed was in the autumn
of his political career after losing
his bid for a U.S. Congressional
seat in 2000.
"I don't think anyone thought
in a million years that he would
be the presumptive frontrunner
in a presidential campaign," Sokol
said.
Obama taught at the law school
for 12 years, according to The New
York Times.
Sokol was one of about 20
students in Obama's well-liked
"Racism and the Law" seminar.
"What made him popular was
just that he was deeply engaging
and very sophisticated in how he
balanced class," he said.
Passionate class discussion of
the controversial topic was vol-
leyed among Libertarians, radi-
cals, conservatives and Democrats,
yet Obama was skillful'at monitor-


ing the debate, Sokol said.
But the senator was quiet about
his own thoughts, he said.
"He was very careful about
sharing some of his opinions in
class," Sokol said. "At the time, I
thought, 'It's because he's a politi-
cian,' and I guess I was right."
Though guarded about his
views, the senator was genuine in
class, he said. *
He recalled one time Obama
came into class and asked students
to forgive his nervous demeanor;
his daughter was being evaluated
for entrance into kindergarten.
"That's the one thing I really
liked," he said.
UF "He never
Academics stopped being a
person."
After practicing law for about
five years, Sokol decided to be-
come a teacher.
Obama, who had since left the
law school and was a U.S. sena-
tor by then, had been impressed
by one of Sokol's papers and had
promised him a letter of recom-
mendation if he ever went into
academia.
Sokol, who is a registered
Independent and has not made
any donations to Obama's cam-
paign, sent a letter to the senator
on a whim, and within two weeks,

UF law professor Daniel Sokol talks about his former professor and presumptive Democratic presiden-
tial nominee Sen. Barack Obama in his office Tuesday afternoon.


he got a response.
"Years later, this was a guy who
still cared," Sokol said.
In terms of how fervently the


senator has been received by his
supporters, Sokol said he could
only speculate along with every-
one else.


"There is- something about
Obama that really fascinates peo-
ple," he said.


STUDENT LIFE

UF students spend summer months interning in D.C.


By ZACH SEYMOUR
Alligator Contributing Writer

The city is chock-full of historic
locales, pillars of the government
and beautiful, towering monu-
ments to the nation's heroes.
Each summer, Washington,
D.C., attracts droves of college-
aged interns who travel to the
city looking for the opportunity
to succeed.
UF students who are talented or
lucky enough to get an internship
in the nation's capital gain experi-
ence and tantalizing resume fod-
der as well as the chance to meet
ambitious and interesting leaders
- especially during this election
year.
But with the nation's elite stu-
dents vying for a finite number
of positions, competition is inevi-
table.
Daniel A. Smith, the coordina-
tor of political science internships
at UF, said there are usually three
ways of obtaining internships: on
your own merit, through personal
contacts and through the contacts
of an internship coordinator.
Nicole Sarrine, a UF political
science sophomore, had to be per-
sistent to earn her internship with
Rep. Gus Bilirakis, a U.S. congress-
man from Florida.
"I went to Representative
Bilirakis' Web site, obtained the
application information, worked


extremely hard on the application
materials, sent my application
to the intern coordinator, went
through an interview process and
was fortunate enough to be grant-
ed this amazing opportunity,"
Sarrine said.
Daniel Thompson, a UF po-
litical science junior, had a more
unconventional entrance into the
Washington internship game.
"In October, I was. at a Delta
Chi fraternity function and
Congressman John Mica was
there," Thompson said. "We got to
talking about politics and current
events, and he ended up offering
me an internship on the spot."
Thompson said interning dur-
ing an election year sets the scene
for an even more lively political
environment.
"The city itself is all fired up,
especially interns, about upcom-
ing races and predicting the win-
ners," Thompson said. "There is
often debate in bars or restaurants
until the wee hours of the morning
discussing the presidential and
congressional races."
Despite the exciting summer
environment, many assume in-
ternships aren't exciting at all.
Thompson said his experiences
proved otherwise.
"When I came up here, I
thought I would be doing cleri-
cal work and coffee runs all day,
but about 99 percent of my day is


spent doing work directly related
to the congressman or the staff,"
he said. "Our main responsibilities
as interns are to give staff-led tours
of the Capitol, conduct research,
write letters and answer constitu-
ent phone calls."
In addition to the responsi-
bilities that come with the job, stu-
dents must also deal with financial
challenges.

"The experience is well
worth the few thousand
dollars."
Daniel Thompson
UF student

Lindsay Saxe, a UF law student,
has spent the summer interning
for the Sutherland law firm, a large
firm based in Atlanta with an of-
fice in Washington, D.C.
Law firm internships like hers
tend to pay well, but not everyone
is so lucky.
Thompson's internship with
Mica, a U.S. congressman from
Florida, pays nothing, which
means Thompson has had to take
on all the financial responsibilities
that come with traveling and liv-
ing in a major metropolitan area.
But he doesn't seem to mind.
"The experience is well worth
the few thousand dollars," he said.
"This is a big boost on a resume as
well as great for networking and


personal contacts."
Smith said the cost of
Washington, D.C., internships is
a problem UF hasn't dealt with
well.
"UF is behind the times," he
said. "There is a systematic bias
against those that can't pay their
own way. Other universities pro-
vide financial grants for students
who can't afford their internships.
Most of those schools are private
though."
According to Smith, this prob-
lem is much worse for political sci-
ence interns especially students
working on political campaigns,
who are less likely to get paid for
their internships.
Even with its problems, Smith
said the wealth of contacts interns
meet, introduction to real world
action and the opportunity to ap-
ply the things that they've learned
in textbooks can be well worth the
cost of the summer.
Smith, who has 15 of his 37
interns placed in Washington, said
he's not sure it's that much more
valuable to work in the capital un-
less, of course, you want a political
job.
Saxe said she thinks interning
there helps secure a future in the
city.
"I think it's important if you
eventually want a job in D.C.," she
said. "It shows you're interested
in being here. Places look at that


when offering a permanent job be-
cause this is such a transient city."
The summer for these interns
has been so much more than just
networking or hands-on learning.
It has provided exposure to
new ideas as well the chance to
meet interesting and motivated
people.
"It's really open," Saxe said.
"My friends and I go out and meet
tons of people from different back-
grounds. I love the diversity of
people, ideas and things to do."
For Thompson, the simple priv-
ilege of wandering the halls of the
Capitol has brought great stories.
"Walking around the Capitol
office buildings, you get to see
and meet some amazing people,"
he said. "My first week here, I met
Barack Obama and Mel Martinez
within minutes of each other on
the Senate side. Throughout my
time here, I've met Sen. Joseph
Biden, Dennis Kucinich and many
more."
Although the capital isn't the
only place a political science stu-
dent can gain valuable experience
during an internship, the diversity
of the city as the center of govern-
ment offers a unique perspective.
"The motto in D.C. is 'long
days, long nights'" Thompson
said. "This city is just full of life
and different people. All the dif-
ferent dynamics here are just un-
believable."

Editorial
ou could best describe the current mood at the
Department of Darts and Laurels as ambivalent. Summer
classes have finally come to an end, and we're stuck
somewhere in between nostalgia and euphoria.
While we're certainly looking forward to enjoying the
remainder of the summer free from the tedium of textbooks
and course work, there's just something magically melan-
choly about the conclusion of summer. Who are we kidding?
Screw the summer. We're ready for some football! There's a
little more than three weeks until the start of another year of
Gator football dominance. And while we're sure that, like us,
you can hardly contain your anticipation, we hope we can tide
you over with the end-of-the-summer (semester) edition of...



Darts & Laurels
First up, we send a we-see-through-the-facade-of-your-
Olympic-pomp-and-circumstance DART the Chinese govern-
ment fqr its decision to revoke the visas of two politically active
former U.S. Olympians. Gold-medalist speed skater Joey Cheek
and Bronze-medalist synchronized swimmer Kendra Zanotto
have been denied entrance to the brutal communist dictatorship
and dose U.S. trading partner for undisclosed reasons. Both
former Olympians are active members of an advocacy group
called Team Darfur, an international organization comprised of
Olympic athletes who work to raise awareness about and pres-
sure the world community to help stop the ongoing genocide in
Darfur, Sudan. Team Darfur has been vocally critical of China
for its support of the Sudanese government.
China's refusal to allow these American heroes to attend
(in a non-competitive function) this year's Summer Olympic
Games in Beijing is purely political and unacceptable. China
simply doesn't want any attention brought to its abysmal hu-
man rights record.
Next up, we take aim at our bumbling, fumbling, flip-flop-
ping pair of presidential candidates. We send a we-"hope"-you-
"change"-your-mind-about-offshore-oil-drilling-(again) DART
to Sen. Barack Obama, who came out this week in support of a
"compromise" energy measure that includes allowing offshore
drilling 50 miles off the Florida coast. Obama's defended his
position, noting that the so-called compromise would include
taxes on oil companies and billions of dollars for investment
in renewable energy. That's great. But we still don't get how
endangering Florida's environmental and economic vitality is
a good idea.
Next, we send a we-know-Republicans-are-the-party-of-
exclusion-but-this-is-too-much DART to Sen. John McCain for
allowing his security team to throw Stephen Price, a reporter
for the Tallahassee Democrat, out of a rally in Panama City last
week. Price was asked by security whether he was a national re-
porter traveling with the McCain campaign. When he respond-
ed that he was a local reporter, he was told to leave thq event
even though other local reporters were permitted to stay. The
only difference between Price and the others? He happens to be
black. The McCain camp initially blamed the Secret Service but
have since issued an apology. This sort of behavior coming from
the campaign of a man who voted against the establishment of
Martin Luther King Jr. Day is disconcerting, to say the least.
Now we offer a now-that's-what-we-call-aggressive-diplo-
macy LAUREL to UF President Bernie Machen for his willing-
ness to engage in a meeting of the minds with Iranian universi-
ties next fall, depending on the political conditions in the "Axis
of Evil" member state. The trip's purpose will be to further sci-
entific and research interests between U.S. and Iranian universi-
ties. The trip won't be a taxpayer-funded junket, as Machen will
be paying his own way. We're glad to see B. Mac actively pursu-
ing this academic exchange. Who knows? Maybe we'll find out
we're not so different from the Iranians after all.
Lastly, we offer a you-may-not-always-keep-your-prom-
ises-but-at-least-you're-trying-to-keep-us-safe LAUREL to the
Student Senate, which approved funding for a program called
Gator Ride, which will provide UF students with a safe way
home after a night on the town. The service will dispatch driv-
ers to pick up Gator revelers at any location in Gainesville and
return them to their residence. We thank our senators for push-
ing this prescient and prudent program.

ON CAMPUS

Group holds water pong contest


By BETHY PIERRE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Members of a UF student orga-
nization played a drinking game
Tuesday that won't meet the dis-
approval of UF officials.
A Spring of Hope, a new UF
organization dedicated to build-
ing wells and clinics on school
grounds in South Africa, spon-
sored a "water pong" tournament
held on the Reitz Union North
Lawn.
The proceeds from the fund-
raiser will go toward building
wells at schools in the Limpopo
Province of rural South Africa.
Jonathan Ossip, president of
the organization's UF chapter and
co-founder of the international or-
ganization, said building a water
source on school grounds creates
a better environment for students'
health and education in South
Africa.
Ossip said the wells cost
between $2,000 and $5,000 and
bring a contaminant-free source
of drinking water, a more sanitary
environment and a means to wa-
ter the gardens, which grow food
to feed the children while they are
in school.
Nine teams paid $5 each to
play, while other passers-by
bought wristbands and made
donations.
In total, the club raised $122.26,
which exceeded its $100 goal for
the day, Ossip said.
The grand prize was a $25 gift
certificate to Gumby's Pizza and
$10 to Smoothie Paradise, while
the runners-up received a $20 gift
certificate to Gator Dawgs.
John Fedele, a UF freshman,
was a member of the winning
team.
Fedele said the event was a fun
way to support a good cause.
Silvio Casco, UF freshman and


Fedele's teammate, said he ad-
mires the organization for having
a fundraiser during finals week.
Ossip and three friends started
the national organization after
they visited South Africa last
summer.
The friends was there to make


a documentary entitled "Water"
after a travel companion who
vacationed in the country a few
years earlier told them about the
shortage at South African schools.
After a year, the organization
has about 15 high school and col-
lege chapters, he said.

Local T-shirt site


faces lawsuit


* DESIGNER CLAIMS
POLO LOGO TOO SIMILAR.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Staff Writer

Nick Moskowitz is fight-
ing to make his mark in the
T-shirt industry.
Moskowitz is the 29-year-
old creator of ThreadPit.com,
a company based out of
Gainesville that sells humor-
ous and raunchy T-shirts.
Moskowitz started
ThreadPit.com in the sum-
mer of 2004 with one of his
friends.
"We were just sitting
around the pool one day and
said we wanted to make T-
shirts," Moskowitz said.
But one of the shirts
currently featured on
Moskowitz's site depicts a
polo rider falling backward
off a horse, an image that
has caught the attention of
fashion company Polo Ralph
Lauren.
Polo Ralph Lauren filed a
petition to cancel Threadpit's
registered trademark with
the Trademark Trial and
Appeal Board, which is an
administrative arm of the
U.S. Patent and Trademark
Office, said Howard Caplan,
the attorney representing
ThreadPit.com.
The trademark cancel-
lation is on the basis that
ThreadPit's mark is confus-
ingly similar to Polo Ralph
Lauren's and that it tarnish-
es the image of their polo


products, Caplan said.
Deidre Blocker, an as-
sociate with the Greenberg
Traurig law firm represent-
ing Polo Ralph Lauren, said
she could not comment on
the case.
A public relations rep-
resentative at Greenberg
Traurig also said he could
not comment.
Caplan said Moskowitz's
trademark is more of a
parody that pokes fun at a
sport considered exclusive
and elitist.
"I think it would be
good to have this on
the books as a victory
for parody,"
Nick Moskowifz
ThreadPit.com creator

"That's really the genesis
more so than Ralph Lauren's
rider," he said.
The case was filed -in
April of 2007, and both par-
ties are still going through a
"discovery period" during
which they request informa-
tion from each other.
After that, depositions
will be scheduled, and from
there they will decide wheth-
er to reach a settlement or go
to trial, Caplan said.
Moskowitz said he will
continue "sticking it to the
man" by fighting the trade-
mark battle.
"I think it would be good
to have this on the books as a
victory for parody," he said.

BOG to recommend more than $65M for Fla. faculty


a THE GOAL IS TO STEM
FLORIDA'S 'BRAIN DRAIN.'

Today, the Florida Board of
Governors, the State University
System's highest governing body,
will try to stop the flow of what
has been dubbed "the brain drain"
in the state university system.


In today's general meeting,
hosted by the University of North
Florida in Jacksonville, Chancellor
Mark Rosenberg will recommend
the board request $65.4 million
from the Legislature in an effort
to retain faculty members who
are leaving the Sunshine State for
better offers in states with stable


economies.
In a meeting of the board's
budget commit-
State tee Wednesday,
News University of South
Florida Provost
Ralph Wilcox said the growing
attrition of faculty will result in
irretrievable losses to Florida.


Wilcox said the "stark reality"
is that the state is losing faculty at
three times the rate it did last year,
and enrollment in large classes
has increased by 50 percent. He
said the loss of quality could lead
to a similar student drain.
"I'm beginning to believe
Bright Futures incentives are in-


sufficient to keep them in state,"
he said.
In addition to funds going to-
ward faculty retention, the board
is also expected to request $30.3
million from the Legislature to
cover the increased cost of utili-
ties.

UF, state leaders look into controversial gossip site


* WEB SITE LETS STUDENTS
INSULT ANONYMOUSLY.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer

In recent months, the college
gossip Web site JuicyCampus.com
has attracted the ire of students
and administrators across the
country.
Amid calls to shut the site
down, free speech advocates have
come to its defense.
But earlier this year, the site
gained two new adversaries at
UF, and according to a UF law
professor, its troubles could just
be starting.
After about a dozen students
came to him and complained
about the site, Student Body
President Kevin Reilly sent a let-
ter in June to Florida Attorney
General Bill McCollum, urging
him to investigate the popular
gossip site that allows people to
post anonymously. The letter, also
signed by Marc Hoit, UF's former
chief information officer, states
that the site plays host to cyberbul-
lying and raises concerns about
public welfare and safety.
"It is not uncommon for posts
on Juicy Campus to mention stu-
dents by name and discuss their
sexual histories, their sexual ori-
entation and even speculate as to
their HIV status," the letter stated.
Reilly said he doesn't necessar-


* *oft*


ily want the site to be shut down,
but he wants McCollum to see if
the site is obeying the law and to
possibly find a way to give stu-
dents more options when dealing
with the site's harmful content.
"All I'm trying to do is protect
the privacy and protect the rights
of students," he said. "How we go
about doing that, I don't necessar-
ily have the answer."
Reilly said posts about him on
the site don't bother him.
"When you're in public office
... you gotta grow a tough skin,"
he said.
In a July interview, Sandi Copes,
McCollum's press secretary, said
McCollum started looking into
the site before he received Reilly
and Hoit's letter, which is the only
complaint about the site his office
has received.
Copes said the attorney gener-
al's office is particularly concerned
about breaches of medical privacy
and public safety that could be on
the site.
Copes said one concern is that a
person's address will be posted on
the site, and people will show up
to that address, which happened in
one reported case.
McCollum is not the only attor-
ney general looking into the site.
The attorneys general in New
Jersey and Connecticut have each
launched investigations into how
the site operates.
In both those states, officials
are trying to determine if Juicy


Campus has committed consumer
fraud by not adhering to its own
terms and conditions.
The site responded to e-mailed
questions with the following
statement: "Juicy Campus is very
confident that it has not violated
any laws."
Lyrissa Lidsky, a UF law profes-
sor, said there is little the attorneys
general can do about the site.
They get involved because "it's
a great public relations move" for
them, Lidsky said.

"Someone just needs to
completely destroy the site.
It's not right."
Dana Perrone
UF biochemistry junior

Despite sometimes racy con-
tent, Juicy Campus is protected
by a federal law that prevents Web
sites from being held liable for con-
tent posted by others, she said.
But that doesn't mean people
who post under the assumption of
anonymity can't face consequences
for their comments.
Even though its motto is
"Always anonymous ... Always
Juicy ... ,"-the site claims on its
FAQ page that it will help trace an
individual if ordered to by a court.
This happened on two occa-
sions in the past year when college
students were arrested after alleg-
edly making posts in which they
threatened to go on school shoot-


ing sprees.
Connor Diemand-Yauman,
Class of 2010 president at
Princeton University, created the
900-member Facebook group
"Boycott JuicyCampus.com!"
Diemand-Yauman said he
found out about the site when one
of his friends was "attacked" on it.
He said he was shocked that
a site like that existed, but he de-
cided to do something positive in
response.
A few months ago, he created
Own What You Think, a campaign
aimed at fighting what he calls a
"culture of gossip."
The campaign included an
online petition, posters, T-shirts
printed with the phrase "anonym-
ity = cowardice," and a "Love
Wall," a 14-feet-by-10-feet screen
stationed on campus that dis-
played positive comments about
fellow students.
Marc J. Randazza, an adjunct
law professor at Barry University
Law School and an attorney who
deals with free speech issues, said
he is OK with people who want
to boycott the site, but he finds it
disturbing when people want the
government to get involved.
For this reason, Randazza, a
UF alumnus, said he thinks the
letter sent by Reilly and Hoit was
misguided.
He compared attempts to regu-
late the site to attempts to regulate
phone conversations.
"Could you imagine if, in the


early days of the telephone, if
the telephone company was told,
'We want you to make sure that
nobody's committing defamation
or conspiracy over these lines?'"
He said if people are mad about
a comment, they should go after
the person who posted it, not the
person who provided the forum in
which it was posted.
Lidsky said even though the
site is not doing the defaming, it
still runs the risk of being sued out
of business.
The site's operators should be
afraid, she said.
"I do think that if Juicy Campus
is sued for defamation by private
individuals who are defamed by
things on the site that eventually
enough lawsuits will cause it to
shut down," she said.
Dana Perrone, a UF biochemis-
try junior, said she would love for
the site to shut down.
"Someone just needs to com-
pletely destroy the site. It's not
right," Perrone said. "If this is
what free speech is, then that's re-
ally sad."
Other students, like Stephen
Ebel, a University of South Florida
graduate student, think people are
making a big deal out of nothing.
Ebel said many of the com-
ments are stupid and disgusting,
but he feels that people should be
allowed to say what they think.
"Juicy Campus, in all of its
vileness, it's free speech and, you
know, that's beautiful," he said.

Advocate starts speakers' bureau for local homeless


By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Writer

Candy Ganyo wants' you to
know she's not a prostitute, drug
addict or alcoholic.
But Ganyo was homeless, and
.to many people, there isn't much of
a difference, she said.
Ganyo, 51, spent about two
years lining up for free food, wash-
ing in store bathrooms and sleep-
ing in the backseat of a car parked
in various Gainesville lots.
Now, she is working alongside
homeless advocates, like Amanda
Haymond, to give a voice to the
county's nearly 1,400 men, women
and children who will sleep on the
street tonight.
Haymond, a Las Vegas. native
and AmeriCorps volunteer, moved
to Gainesville last month to address
what she calls the dehumanization
of the homeless through a program
that aims to dispel stereotypes and
have people see a face rather than
an issue.
The program is called "Faces
of GRACE Speakers' Bureau" and
will hold presentations beginning
this fall.
The bureau, which is part of
the city and county 10-Year Plan to
End Homelessness, is made up of
homeless and formerly homeless
people willing to talk about their
experiences.
Twelve similar speakers' bu-
reaus, all coordinated through a
nationwide program, will begin
operating across Florida this year.
The state ranks No. 1 in docu-
mented attacks against the home-


less for the last three years, accord-
ing to speakers' bureau statistics.
Haymond's interest in listening
to an often-ignored sect of society
began six years ago when she was
working at a public library in Las
Vegas.
She said her perceptions of
the tired-looking, often-unkempt
people were stereotypically unin-
formed at first.
Then, she did something she
says even do-gooders often don't
take the time to try.
She talked to them.
"The minute I saw them as peo-
ple, only with problems, I couldn't
just say, 'OK, bye,"'
Local she said.. "I wanted
News others to hear their
stories, see their
faces and how they're like anyone
else."
So Haymond started Forgotten
Voice, a Las Vegas newspaper
written by homeless residents, for-
merly homeless people and their
advocates.
The paper's name came from
one of its homeless writers who
told Haymond he thought it was a
shame that "everybody talks about
the homeless, but you never hear
what the homeless have to say."
But this fall, Gainesville middle
schools, high schools, university
campuses, religious groups and
civic organizations will not only
hear what the homeless have to
say, but they will also meet the
people saying it.
Jon DeCarmine, executive
director of the City of Gainesville
/' Alachua County Office on
Homelessness, said getting to


know the homeless on an individ-
ual level makes it harder for people
to view them as less than human.
"We want to show housed peo-
ple these guys aren't monsters,"
DeCarmine said. "You don't call
someone you know personally a
bum or a vagrant."
He said he thinks people are
typically afraid of the homeless
because they shed doubt on what
Americans are raised to believe.
"They've worked hard all
their lives and have just been beat
down," he said. "People don't
want to confront what they see as
the system failing."
According to bureau statistics,
more than one-third of people
without a home in Alachua County
are under 18 years old.
Ganyo, who is now living in a
friend's home, said the number of
young people living on the streets
shows that being homeless is not
always a choice.
"No kid would pick sleeping
on a bench over a warm bed," she
said. "Usually, we're just people
who can't get out of a bad situa-
tion."
Though she worked as a sub-
stitute teacher for several years,
Ganyo said getting hired for a job
when you don't have a running car
or phone is almost impossible.
She estimated that about 75
percent of the homeless people she
knows are physically or mentally
handicapped, which also makes
work difficult to come by, she said.
"So much has got to be done,"
Ganyo said. "But so much can be
done with a little human cour-
tesy."

UF leads Florida universities as most sustainable campus in state


GREEN, from page 1


would differentiate that from be-
ing trendy," DeLongpre Johnston
said.
While, for some, "going
green" is jumping on a bandwag-
on, the trend has been growing at
UF for more than 10 years with
the support of students and the
administration, she said.
"What went from trying to
get the word out is now trying to
keep up with the number of peo-
ple who want to get involved,"
she said.

LEED the Way
UF has made it part of its poli-
cy to incorporate green standards
into construction.
In 2001, UF adopted the
Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design crite-
ria, or LEED criteria, for all
new construction and renova-
tions, according to the Office of
Sustainability Web site.
LEED is a national, third-party
rating system that rates buildings
based on six criteria, including
water management, energy man-
agement and material use, said
Bahar Armaghani, UF's LEED-
accredited faculty member.
Once buildings are complete,
they are submitted for review and
can earn certified, silver, gold or
platinum certification based on a
point system, Armaghani said.
When LEED was first ad-
opted, it was more expensive to
build buildings at high certifica-
tion levels, but now, because the
products are in high demand, it
doesn't cost more to build green,
she said.
In 2006, UF tightened its stan-
dards and made it a requirement
for all new construction to be at
least at the silver level, she said.
"We knew we could do better,
so we decided to raise the bar,"
she said.
Campus currently has two
gold buildings, eight certified
buildings and more than 30 that
have been submitted for certifica-
tion, she said.
Older buildings are the most
difficult to bring up to new stan-
dards because they weren't built
green-mindedly, she said.


They are also expensive to
renovate, and with budget cuts,
often the most that can be done is
ensuring that the old equipment
is maintained and operating ef-
ficiently, she said.
For example, Tigert Hall,
which was completed in 1951,
loses 30 cents on every dollar
spent on energy because its air-
handling system needs to be up-
dated, DeLongpre Johnston said.
John Lawson, UF energy coor-
dinator, said it can be daunting
to make older buildings energy
efficient.
Efforts are being made to cut
back on air-conditioning use
when buildings are unoccupied
and to replace equipment when
funds are available, he said.
Yet last year, due in part to the
rising cost of oil, UF's utility bill
increased by 17 percent, totaling
$40 million, Lawson said.
"It may be five years before
there's a payback," he said. "But
in five years, that's money you
could use for other projects."
Grassroots Support
Students are the school's most
valuable resource in the effort to
go green, DeLongpr6 Johnston
said.
"I think students are more
passionate about it
Special and more committed
Report about it because they
aren't jaded yet," she
said.
Sara Hutton, incoming presi-
dent of the student organization,
Gators for a Sustainable Campus,
represents that "green" drive.
Hutton has been a member of
the organization since it began
two years ago with about 10
students.
The group's Listserv now has
almost 1,000 e-mail addresses.
Hutton said the group not
only spreads the word about
"going green" but takes part in
initiatives on campus as well.
One such endeavor is the Tail-
Gator recycling program, which
started in 2006. During home
football games, members volun-
teer to collect recyclable trash,
Hutton said.
"Some people will cheer for us
and take pictures with us or offer
us beer," she said.

Hutton and other volunteers
even dig through Dumpsters to
make sure they gather all recy-
clable trash.
During last football season, 13
tons of recyclable material was
collected.
Another event, which aimed
to help deal with rising energy
costs, involved a competition
among undergraduate dorms to
see which of the 24 halls could
decrease electricity use the most
over the course of a month, said
Claire Long, who organized the
competition, in an e-mail.
The winner, Keys Residential
Complex, saved 14,000 kilowatt-
hours, Long said. The typical
U.S. household consumes about
11,000 kwh a year, according to
the U.S. Department of Energy.
All together, the residence
halls reduced carbon emissions
by 340 tons and energy consump-
tion by 24 percent, which is the
equivalent of taking 56 cars off
the road, Long said.
"My hope is that eventually
students won't need a competi-
tion to spur them into action,"
she said.
Green Power
DeLongpre Johnston has no
doubts that the UF administra-
tion supports efforts to green the
university.
"I think the location of the of-
fice speaks volumes to how the
campus views it," she said as
she gestured over her shoulder
toward Bernie Machen's office,
which is on the same floor in the
administration building as her
own. "We're right around the
corner from the president."
DeLongpre Johnston said
her $125,000 budget, which
is matched by a grant, wasn't
trimmed in the recent round of
cuts.
Besides providing the green,
Machen has shown his support
for environmental efforts in other
ways as well.
In October 2006, he was the
first to sign the American College
and University Presidents
Climate Commitment, which
obligated UF to make an effort to
become carbon neutral.
DeLongpre Johnston said the
goal is to fulfill that promise by

Plans are already in the works,

Last fall, when the Gators took

Seminoles, UF hosted the first-
ever carbon-neutral football
game, she said.
This year, every home game
should be carbon neutral
- offset by $10 donations that
will go toward the purchase of
compact fluorescent lightbulbs,
DeLongpre Johnston said.
So far, enough money has
been raised for the first three
home games, she said.
She said the goal of carbon
neutrality in 17 years is slightly

unrealistic, but that was on pur-
pose.
"If you don't set the bar high
enough, you won't push your-
self," she said.

Not Quite in the Bag
While canvas bags might be
a passing fad, green changes to
UF's policy are likely here to stay
as the university sets an in-state
standard for going green.
UF received 97 of 99 possible
points in the Princeton Review's
green rating system.
While that didn't put it among
the top 11 universities, all of
which scored 99, that score did
earn the top spot in Florida.
FSU earned an 83, and the
University of Central Florida
earned a 60.
Lawson believes efforts to go
green will continue until a new
source of energy is found.
"This is a wake-up call to be
more sustainable in regards to
our resources and environment,"
he said.
With students, the challenge
is making changes easy, Hutton
said.
She said her club will continue
to hand out canvas bags and
high-energy efficiency bulbs to
make it as convenient as possible,
but students will have to feel im-
pacted to really change.
"When you get right down
to it, people are motivated by
money," she said.

GPD nabs cashier

A Wal-Mart cashier was arrested Tuesday for allegedly
stealing more than $1,700 from the Gainesville store on
Northwest 13th Street from June through July.
Aretina Williams, 20, put 33-cent price tags on 42 items,
some of which should have been priced between $90 to al-
most $170, according to a Gainesville Police report.
Williams either charged items at the reduced price or
voided them altogether before giving the merchandise to
visiting friends to hide in their bags.
Items included clothing, sheets, tow-
els, a DVD player, cameras, a Lego set,
a TI calculator and various other pur-
chases.
Williams rung up 42 items as "ho-
siery" except for $70 worth of fireworks,
which she charged $1 under the code
Williams "women's beads."
She was caught after some of her friends set off an
alarm at the front door. The friends dropped the items and
ran. Officers traced the items back to Williams' register.
Video surveillance showed the fraudulent transactions,
according to the report.
Williams was charged with grand theft and fraud and
could serve up to five years in prison or pay a $5,000 fine,
said GPD spokeswoman Summer Hallett.

Cafe Risque sees few customers as truckers struggle to fill their tanks

town of about 700 people, who
are less than excited about the
restaurant with scenery. So Cafe
Risque is offering a 50 percent dis-
count on food and store purchases
to customers with a gas receipt.
Asher Sullivan, owner of the cafe,
did not return phone calls seeking
comment.
The economy isn't only affect-
ing the sex industry in Micanopy.
Newsweek reported that Nevada's
legal brothels are feeling the pinch
too. Business is down by as much
as 45 percent in the Silver State's
rural areas, which are dependent
on truckers for more than half their
business.
Jennifer, a waitress dad in boy
shorts that flaunt "Cafe Risque"
across the back, said the average
customer spends $25, and that
number is dropping quickly.
She was the only waitress Friday
night; there always used to be two.
She used to make $200 a night
working with another waitress.
Now, she struggles for $100 alone.
"If there's nobody on the road,"
she said, "there's nobody in here."
The 26-year-old described how
she will stomp after customers who
don't tip her, hands on hips, pout
on lips.
"I get stiffed more than I get
tipped," she said. "I have to go up
and say, 'Seriously? You're not kid-
ding me, right?"'
She said she always gets the tip.
Damayanti, a dancer whose
name means "beautiful" in Hindu,
doesn't. She said she has left with
barely $100 lately, to her dismay.


"I'm not much of a hustler like
some of these other girls," she said.
"I'd like them to come to me, but
that doesn't happen."
In ruffle-trimmed sheer lingerie,
the 27-year-old mother lingered
by the stage side, gazing up to
the bare-bottomed ballerinas who
pirouette and perform pas de deux
to less-than-classical songs for the
pleasure of the onlookers.
She has worked in five strip
dubs. Her husband, a carpenter,
was supporting her until the econ-


omy started suffering. She had to
start working again.
"It's like riding a bike, really,"
"Right now, I'm just getting

money is the root of all

she said.
Damayanti said she can only
afford to put $20 worth of gas at


a time in her car, which gets her
hardly above empty. She is working
toward sending her 5-year-old son
to a private school in the fall.
"Right now, I'm just getting by,"
she said. "It seems money is the
root of all evil."

tion adds to the discounts and deals
already geared toward truckers,

their truck overnight get free en-
trance the next morning too.
Mark Gautreau, 49, is one
trucker who took advantage of
the deals. He parked a company-
owned 18-wheeler Friday night in
the designated truck area behind
Cafe Risque. Only three out of the
30 truck spaces were occupied.
The 13-year veteran driver said
he was forced to give up his own
semitrailer in May. He couldn't af-
ford it any longer with the price of
diesel steadily mounting.
The national average price of
a gallon of diesel was $4.644 on
Tuesday, according to AAA's Daily
Fuel Gauge Report. A year ago, the
average was $2.959.
Additionally, Gautreau's weekly
payments included $170 for insur-
ance and $460 for truck payments.
Last year, he said he took home as
much as $1,000 a week. Now, he
earns $600.
"How can you make money?"
he asked. "You can't."
Gautreau now turns to his com-
pany to provide him a truck. He
said it costs about $1,400 to fill up
both gas tanks, which hold a total
of 300 gallons. That will take him
about 1,300 miles, or 2 and a half
days, before he has to fill up again.
"To be honest, I've got maybe
$40 in my pocket, and that's bad for
a trucker."
Gautreau has a family of five in
Bonifay, Fla., a small town of 4,000
about 100 miles east of Pensacola.
He said his family's major stress is
money. Overdue mortgage and car
payments pile high.
"It's not just me," he said. "It's
everyone out there. The fuel is kill-
ing everyone."

Pat Lavery has done it all. He
has played a prominent role in
Gainesville's music scene since
the late '90s, working his way up
from going to shows and meeting
bands to working at a local radio
station to starting his own book-
ing agency called Glory Days
Booking.
"You just kind of stumble into
it," Lavery said.
After spending a decade work-
ing with Gainesville music, he re-
alized he wanted to do something
bigger. He wanted to do some-
thing that would be a big deal in
the Gainesville music scene.
That is why Lavery decided to

camping and arts festival known
as The Real Big Deal, which will
take place at the Alachua Country
Fairgrounds on Sept. 13 and 14.
"This was kind of the logical
next step," he said.
Lavery and his partner,
Danielle Robinson, have been put-
ting in almost 100 hours of work a
week for the past three months to
create the festival that will feature
national acts such as Drive-By
Truckers, Motion City Soundtrack
and Mates of State, as well as lo-
cal bands such as Moringbell,
Umoja Orchestra and T13C.
"It's non-stop from the time

Robinson said.

Robinson said their main goal
for the festival was to keep it

Alligator Adve-ing,:442..s..


I


I want to tell you a secret.
It's about immaculately dressed
girls that seem to have it all- per-
fectly fitted blazers, platform boo-
ties, silk maxi dresses an entire
wardrobe straight off the latest
Parisian runway.
You might look at her and think
- "Yeah, she's loaded. I'd look
like that too if I could blow $500
on a dress."
She probably wants you to
think that, but here is where I have
to blow the cover. If she's smart, it
probably cost less than $50.
The truth is, to have style, and I
mean real style, what you need is
imagination, not a trust fund.
I spent my fall 2007 semes-
ter as a fashion intern in New
York, where everyone around
me had plenty of money to in-
vest in clothes Marni sweat-
ers, Christian Louboutin pumps,
Hogan bags.
Living on what FASFA deemed
a reasonable amount to send me
on a New York internship With, I
had to get creative.
Trust me, if I could find a way
to blend in and even score some
fashion compliments along the
way, you can too.
First let's look at what style
is. The dictionary defines style
as "a quality of imagination and
individuality expressed in one's
actions and tastes."
Having great personal style is
about wearing clothes that you
love and represent who you are,
not about owning all the latest
trends.
As the legendary designer Yves
Saint Laurent said, "Fashions
fades, style is eternal."
Don't spend even $10 on a leop-
ard-print sweater just because you
saw a similar piece in Glamour.
If you don't love it you can't
expect to wear it. I predict you
will wear it once or twice before
it hangs in your closet for the next
year.
Buy only what you love. This
ensures you will adore everything
in your closet and never suffer a
"What was I thinking?" moment.
That doesn't mean you
shouldn't experiment. If you love
the way Kate Moss looks in gladi-
ator sandals and vests, try it out
by all means. But try it on before
you swipe your debit card.
A trend that looks great on
someone else might not be com-
fortable for you. Thus, it will end
up a waste of money.
Now that you will never mis-
spend another dollar, we can
move on to the second lesson.
Don't pay full price. ,
You do this by carefully perus-
ing off-price stores like T.J. Maxx


and Loehmann's, outlet stores and
consignment shops. Take Urband
Thread for example. You can find
an Anthropologie dress, normally
$200, for 80.
Off-price and outlet shops sell
brand-name clothes for 20 percent
to 50 percent off retail price. They
constantly run sales as well, which
can knock off another 50 percent.
A perk of shopping at these
stores versus inexpensive depart-
ment stores like Forever 21 is that
clothes are good quality.
Why would you buy a $22
jacket if it will look faded and
linty after one wash?
Since the clothes at outlet and
off-price stores are name brand,
they also come with the security
provided by quality fabrics and
workmanship labels.
Consignment shops are great
places to get basics and funky jew-
elry. Stores such as Sandy's and
Flashbacks operate on the basis of
"One man's frash is another man's
treasure."
Not only can you get money for
selling clothes you no longer want,
but then you can turn around and
buy gently used clothes at unbe-
lievable prices. A BCBG dress for
$12?. Unheard of.
You can walk out with a entire
week's worth of outfits for $30-.
In the event you simply must
shop at the mall, bypass all the
pretty displays and fly to the sales
sign like a moth to light. With the
drab economic situation, stores
hold sales regularly.
Chances are if you buy a shirt
today for $39.99, you will find it's
50 percent off within a week.
What a disappointment to
watch someone buy a piece on sale
when you bought it full price.
Why spend more than you have
to?
Some people might tell you to
invest in key pieces. I disagree.
Sure, I could have bought my
Marc Jacobs bag full price ($400)
at Saks, but instead I got it for
$198 at an outlet store. I ended
up with an extra $200 to buy more
accessories. Take that, overpriced
retail stores!
Which brings me to my last tip:
Befriend accessories.
Hats, bangles, earrings any-
thing you want can be bought for
the price of lunch at stores like For
Love 21 and consignment stores. ;
Take advantage of this because
personal style is all about ac-
cessorizing. You can be wearing
head-to-toe black, but with the
right accessories, you will look
original and fresh.
There you have it the whole
bag of tricks laid out for youno
look like a million bucks without

Lollapalooza '08: Music and mayhem in the windy city

JACK BENGE AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER


"We're from Oakland, Calif., but
we love Chicago," was the senti-
ment echoed by Zach Rogue after
his band, Rogue Wave, ended their
first song for Lollapalooza 2008.
As tens of thousands descended
upon Grant Park, it was hard to
.imagine anyone disagreeing with
the statement. Lines were long
anfd 'geat-saving situations grew
tense, even downright nasty as the
Chicago sun began to set. But these
moments couldn't ruin the eventful
and eclectic weekend of music.
Friday night was all about
Radiohead. The musical titans were
scheduled alongside no one. If you
had any intention to be in Grant
Park after 8 p.m. on Friday you
could either be the only one in line
to buy a T-shirt or join the estimat-
ed crowd of 70,000 for Radiohead's
24-song set.
The show started with "15
Step," the upbeat opener off their
new "In Rainbows" record, and
never looked back, following
with "Airbag" and "There There."
Quick turnarounds coupled with
the band's eco-friendly LED dis-
play kept the audience enthralled.
Blistering renditions of "2+2=5"
and "Idioteque" dosed Friday
night's festivities for good around
10 p.m.
Saturday, I found myself with
front row seats for the Eastern
European gypsy punk of DeVotchKa
and the raucous indie rock of


Okkervil River. Both shows proved
to be highlights of the entire festival.
Every member of DeVotchKa uti-
lized multiple instruments through-
out the show, encompassing guitars,
sousaphone, drums, accordion,
trumpet, keyboard, violin, double
bass and a theremin.
If the many instrument changes
weren't enough to keep one's atten-
tion, it's almost impossible not to be
swept up by frontman Nick Urata's
splendid fervor. The full wine bottle
that he brought on stage didn't stay
corked for long. The bottle's fer-
mented contents seemed secondary
as Urata used the bottle to hold
down the frets on his guitar as he
wailed away on the strings with
his free hand. Not to be outdone,
drummer Shawn King managed to
play his trumpet and keep the track
on pace with his foot on the kick
drum, all while hitting his snare
with the drumsticks he held in his
opposite hand.
Next was Okkervil River's 5:15
p.m. show. Aside from an amazing
set list, which kicked off with "The
Presidents Dead" and "Black"
and ended with the sing-along
"Westfall," the band seemed de-
termined to spread their infectious
enthusiasm to the whole audience.
Front man Will Sheff spent time
jamming with each of his band-
mates and demanding the audience
to clap and sing along.
Sunday seemed like a down-


Lola oa cone u year at chcagos Grant Park on Aug. 3. The ree sal attracs ousan lovers every year
with headliners like Radlohead and Rage Against the Machine. The festival was created in 1991 by Jane's Addiction front man Perry Farrell.

er after two great days. The
Weakerthans' 1:15 p.m. show was
canceled. Iron & Wine managed
to bore casual listeners enough to
create a noticeable shift of festival-
goers to other stages. My odys-
sey weaving through drenched
Flogging Molly fans to get good
seats for The National's show al-
most proved fatal. An initial acous-


tic problem with The National's
set led fans to shout at the band in
between numbers to try and rectify
the situation. But the band locked
in and played a good show, closing
with the political rallying cry "Mr.
November."
And then there was Kanye
West. West managed to start his
show promptly, using his "Stronger


Intro" to build hysteria for his en-
trance before he opened the show
with "Good Morning." Chicago's
hometown hero delivered the
goods, playing hit after hit behind
his blinding light extravaganza.
The crowd let themselves get swept
up by West's distinct brand of hip-
hop hoopla and danced what was
left of the weekend away.


* Codependency doesn't make couples cute


* As part of the follow-up to my first
article, I thought I would continue to
talk about codependency because if you
have fuJl love for yourself, you won't be
* codependent.
We all know someone that is con-
stantly in a relationship on the grounds of
* being "lonely" or some other excuse.
I'm here to say, "stop."
Some use a relationship as a means of
escaping something they \\ ant to avoid in
their own bIves. Some use it a- a way of
feeling "complete." but Lt you're the kind
of person who bounces from relationship
to relationship, are \ou really happy?
I sympathue don't get me wrong


Perhaps everyone in your social circle is
in a relationship, and you seem to be the
only one that isn't. It doesn't help that if
you're on Facebook, or any Web site for
that matter, there are advertisements that
make you feel bad about being single.
They trick you into thinking you need
to be in a relationship with headlines like
"Over 21 and Still Single?" as if we're
already extremely old and running out
of4ime.
I say, don't be upset by it, and don't
buy into it! Use this as a time to figure
yourself out. You can't expect another
person to know exactly what you want
when you don't even know yourself.

ontfe aezm


Read that book you've always wanted
to, work out more, get those grades up,
get involved with cubs, sports, religious
groups the possibilities are endless.
Stretch those independence muscles. You
don't need a relationship when you have
- yourself.
We have been told all our lives that we
need a relationship to complete us. What
a heavy, stressful term. The dictionary
defines "complete" as "lacking nothing"
or "whole." Equating relationships to a
means of completion makes us think we
can't live without someone.
Let's turn this charged term around.
Think of the person you want to be


with as someone
to complement
your personal-
ity, rather than
complete it. If
you're already
body, heart and mind, what else do you
need?
Work on getting out of this needy
mind-set. Before anyone else can love
you, you have to learn to live with and
love yourself. Love is inside of you, and
you can't expect anyone else to fill a gap
that's up to you to fix. You'll find that
you'll attract that right person once you
find contentment in yourself.

Reznor extends hand that feeds with new album release


ROBERT HILSON *
AVENUE WRITER
Feeling the pinch yet? Getting squeezed
at the pump? Gouged at the grocery store?
Not to worry. While Congress waffles over
another round of stimulus checks and Sen.
John McCain whets the collective petroleum
appetite by dangling a gas tax holiday just
out of reach of this nation's penny-pinching
fingertips, Nine Inch Nails is actually offer-
ing a whiff of wallet-sparing practicality.
Trent Reznor noted masochist, pur-
veyor of wrath and nihilism feels your
pain. Go figure.
And so "The Slip," the eighth studio
album from the goth-core elder statesman,
comes completely free of charge to anyone
with an Internet connection and 87 idle
megabytes. Sonically speaking, these ten


compositions adhere to conventional indus-
trial standards. For emotional breadth and
instrumental diversity, look elsewhere. This
is jet-black brood-rock pummeled out with
all the delicacy of hurdling shrapnel. Though
Reznor incorporates ambi-
ent intermissions, includ-
ing the seven-minute epic Meticu
"Corona Radiata," to ease not wi
the corrosive tension, the constant rhy
initial aural ambush sim- courtesy of ea
ply overwhelms. sion takes
In addition to hooky vo-
cal melodies, "Echoplex"
and "1,000,000" demon-
strate Reznor's affinity for
laptop tinkering. Meticulous production not

a toll. Coincidentally, repeated thwacking of
a spatula against the tin walls of an aban-
doned warehouse adequately replicates the
drum sound.
But I'm nitpicking. Criticizing this album
is like complaining about
the food at a soup kitchen.
ous production It's the method of distribu-
hstanding, the tion, rather than the actual
mic battering product, that gives "The -
plitting percus- Slip" an enormity that the
toll, music alone would not
S otherwise merit.
Reznor isn't a fringe
artist. On the contrary,
he's an alternative icon
backed by a fanatical legion and a bankable
brand name. By giving away new mate-
rial with no strings attached, he's effectively


driving another nail in the already sealed
major label coffin.
In terms of fanfare, "The Slip" will
no doubt flounder in the shadow of
Radiohead's "In Rainbows" despite its more
user-friendly logistics. The British quintet
offered its latest album via a pay-what-you-
want system which resulted in a pocketbook
coup d'etat, allowing the band to cash in on
a yet-untapped reservoir of goodwill. In
contrast, NIN's leak doesn't require credit
card numbers or soul-searching valunoiohs,
just an open mind and an open hard drive.
Options to download in a range of high-
fidelity formats sweeten the package and
lend to its unprecedented nature. As for
Reznor and his fans, this is a win-win sce-
nario. If the music flops, it's at a price they
are willing to pay: none at all.


'Swing Vote' fails to win over audience with hazy plot


ALLISON GRINER AVENUE WRITER


ust in time for our own elec-
tion season, "Swing Vote" enters
theaters and, like most politicians,
tries hard to reflect the thoughts
and feelings of the average
American.
Instead, it flip-flops on its mes-
sage.
Bud Johnson (Kevin Costner)
is a bum. His daughter Molly
(Madeline Carroll) is responsible
for waking him up, preparing his
breakfast and making sure he gets


to work on time.
The one thing she asks in return
is that Bud vote in the upcom-
ing election between incumbent
Republican President Andrew
Boone (Kelsey Grammer) and his
Democratic opposition Donald
Greenleaf (Dennis Hopper).
When the election comes down
to one uncounted vote, the vote
that Bud seems to have cast, both
candidates fly to his sleepy New
Mexico town to win him over be-


fore he recasts the crucial ballot.
The audience is meant to
follow Bud as he discovers the
importance
of voting and
political aware-
ness, but the
political process
is shown to be a
joke where ide-
als and morality
Costner are thrown out
in favor of power struggle.
The action unfolds like a tennis
match once the candidates come


to town. If one candidate makes
a commercial or holds a benefit
aimed at Bud, the other quickly
responds with a similar tactic.
Like Bud, the audience is
overwhelmed by all the hoopla
surrounding him. The talents of
Nathan Lane and Stanley Tucci as
advisers are wasted in brief and
almost identical roles.
Even the presidential, can-
didates lack complexity and
growth.
Their dilemmas and emotions
are superficially represented as


they experience guilt over pan-
dering to Bud yet continue to do
so, as if helpless.
Bud calls for someone "bigger
than their speeches," yet the film
culminates in a huge speech.
By trying to balance cynicism
and optimism, the movie proves
that you can't win everybody
over.
While the concept has poten-
tial, "Swing Vote" needs a new,
clearer platform in order to be a
potent satire.

Freshman Hill aims for starting spot

By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

Will Hill always planned on making an impact as a
freshman. But even he couldn't have foreseen the oppor-
tunity that has presented itself.
After knee injuries left projected starting strong safety
Dorian Munroe and backup John Curtis sidelined for the
entire 2008 season, Hill has suddenly found himself in the
thick of the competition for the starting role.
Only sophomore Ahmad Black figures to be ahead of
the former prep All-American on the depth chart this fall.
"I knew I was going to play early, but the opportunity
. came at hand rather quickly," he said. '"It was like, 'All
right, here's your chance, so go out and get it."'
The Gators became surprisingly thin at the position
I. Q after a summer of attrition.
eJunior Jamar Hornsby was kicked off
the team in May after a felony theft charge.
Sophomore Bryan Thomas is still recover-
Football ing after having a cyst removed from his
Footba knee, and freshman Dee Finley was forced
to go to prep school after he failed to qual-
ify academically.
The 6-foot-I, 203-pound' freshman will have his hands
full with the talented Black.
The former Lakeland High standout came to UF as a
cornerback but was moved to safety during spring prac-
tice.
Black played in seven games last season, mostly on
special teams, but managed to tally seven tackles.
"I waited a whole year for this," Black said of the op-
portunity to start. "But I also know that I have a whole lot
of talented people behind me that would do anything to
take my spot,"
Exuding confidence, Hill said that he welcomes the
competition with Black.
"I love the pressure," Hill said. "Without the pressure,
I'm going to go out there and just go through the motions.
With the pressure, it's pushing me to be a better player."
Hill, who played quarterback in high school, said his
biggest obstacle is adjusting to the faster-paced college
game.

Howard puts struggles in '08 behind him


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Jaye Howard watched last
season as Mike Pouncey, who
had been on the offensive line,
snagged a starting position at
defensive tackle.
When you're a defensive
lineman, that's not an ideal
situation to be in. None of
the fledgling defensive line-


men, most of who were a few
months removed from getting
their prom tuxedos fitted,
were deemed reliable replace-
ments for Javier Estopinan
when he went down for the
season with a torn ACL.
So instead, the coaching
staff plugged in Pouncey, who
had never played the posi-
tion, because of his energy.
And while Pouncey did well


"That was the hard-
est thing I ever went
through."
Jaye Howard
UF defensive .lineman

enough his energy was
certainly notable with the
way he slapped teammates'
helmets and jiggled his 312-
pound frame it wasn't easy


to watch for true defensive
players.
Maybe that's why Howard
spent so much time at
Pouncey's house this summer
looking over film.
Whatever he did, it cer-
tainly helped. At Wednesday's
practice Howard was scrim-
maging with the first-team
defense at tackle.

Patchan all


patched up


for fall play

Alligator Staff Writer

Matt Patchan is grateful to be alive.
The freshman defensive tackle said
Tuesday that he is fully recovered from
a gunshot wound he received to his left
shoulder earlier this summer.
Patchan was shot at Sadie Park in
Brandon on May 9 just after 10 p.m.
According to a police report, a gun-
man opened fire on Patchan and a
group of others that included former
Armwood High School teammate and
kicker Wesley Skiffington.
Skiffington,
now a freshman on
the Stony Brook
University football
team, was shot in the
s right foot.
When reporters
questioned Patchan
Patchan about the incident, he
was careful with his words.
"I was just at the wrong place at the--.
wrong time," he said.
UF coach Urban Meyer said that he
was shocked when he got the phone
call from Patchan's father about the
shooting.
"You start hearing the word, 'shot',"
Meyer said.
"I was thinking, 'Is he alive? Is he
going to be OK? Will he be functional?'
He's very fortunate."
Patchan joked he was not allowed
to keep the bullet that was removed
from his shoulder because it was used
as evidence in the case.
According to Patchan, police have
given up looking for the shooter, who
has still yet to be identified.
The freshman said he has put the ex-
perience behind him, and he is happy
to just be out on the field again.
"I know that God was watching me
through that and gave me a second
chance," Patchan said. "So I'm going to
make the best of it."
He is now leading the way for a

Ingram sits out due to leg injury


ETHE TEAM IS AWAITING MRI
RESULTS.

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

Senior tight end Cornelius Ingram
missed the Gators football practice on
Wednesday because of a strained left
knee?
UF coach Urban Meyer said
Ingram hurt his leg in one-on-one
drills Tuesday, and the team was wait-
ing on MRI results. There is no indica-
'tion as to the seriousness of the injury,
Meyer said.
Redshirt freshman running back
Chris Rainey also sat out practice with
a nagging groin injury. Rainey will be
shut down for a couple of days at the
most.
Overall, Meyer was upset with the
quality of Wednesday's practice. He


kept the players an hour later than
scheduled and had them run sprints at
the end of the session.
"Today wasn't very good," Meyer
said. "Lack of intensity, and it used
to be when people talked about the
Gators, it was relentless effort to the
football. That comes from leaders.
That comes from the
[Brandon] Silers, that
comes from the Ray
McDonalds."
FOo all Meyer continued
by coinparing past
leaders to the youth of
this team.
"The problem with them is those
are older players that had leadership
value," he said. "Right now we're
expecting some of our leaders to pick
up and go on our young team. In
certain areas we're real young still,
which is almost like a four-letter word,
'young.'"
HARVIN SITS OUT AGAIN


Percy Harvin was limited in prac-
tice as well for the third straight day.
Meyer insisted he was just playing
it safe by not overworking his junior
wide receiver, who missed the more
intense drills at the end of Tuesday
and Wednesday's practices.
"Real cautious," Meyer said. "We're
just going to be real smart."
Offensive lineman Maurice Hurt
was in a small scooter accident, Meyer
said, but the sophomore should be
full go soon. Meyer also said fellow
offensive lineman Carl Johnson had
a broken wrist. Defensive tackle John
Brown also said he had to see a trainer
for a hurt knee.
ETC.
Redshirt freshman receiver Deonte
Thompson made a spectacular leaping
catch Wednesday before falling out of
bounds. Sophomore safeties Ahmad
Black and Major Wright had tight cov-
erage on Thompson and even bumped
into him, but he managed to hold on.


Heater aims for depth at safety before season begins


HILL, from page 29


Hill said that starting free safety Major Wright has done
his best to help him adjust to the new level of competition.
"He played a big part as soon as I got here," Hill said.
"He got on me and was telling me everything, what to do
and how to do it about the tempo, mostly."
Safeties coach Chuck Heater said that while he would
like to have five safeties ready to play at the start of the
season, he's only concerned about finding his starters right
now.
"We have to start with getting two good guys out there,"
he said. "Then you can worry about getting the third and
fourth."


Walk-on Cade Holliday and true freshman wide receiver
T.J. Lawrence figure to be in the mix for backup roles at the
free safety position.
"He's a very intelligent player. But it's so
early."
Urban Meyer
UFfootball coach


Despite the attention Hill has received from media and
fans alike, Urban Meyer isn't ready to anoint the Orange
Park, N.J., native just yet.
"He's a great kid," Meyer said. "He's a very intelligent
player. But it's so early. "

Fresh. eager to play

PATCHAN, from page 29

talented group of freshmen that could push for sig-
nificant playing time in the fall.
Patchan, who enrolled at UF in January, is the elder
statesman of the 2008 class.
"It was the best decision that I could have made,"
he said of the choice to leave high school early. "I'm
sort of like a sophomore now."
Patchan said that he and the other freshmen are
making a point of pushing the veterans for playing
time.
"When you put those pads on, everyone is the
same," he said.
"We're all getting better every day."
Patchan, who played both offensive and defensive
line in high school, has been working out at defensive
tackle and defensive end.
The freshman said that he doesn't care where he
plays once the season starts as long as he has a chance
to get on the field.
"(The positions) are all pretty easy," he- said.
"Football is football."
Patchan added that he would like to eventually
play on the offensive side of the ball.
The Tampa native was kept out of the weight rooni
for a portion of the off-season due to a strained pecto-
ral muscle but said that he is once again lifting and has
been steadily gaining weight.
The 6-foot-6 lineman currently weighs in at 270
pounds, but he said that he would like to work his
way up to 300 while still being able to run a 4.5-second
40-yard dash.
When asked what he could bring to the UF defense,
the freshman replied with a touch of wit.
"Long hair and attractiveness," he said with a
smile.

After redshirting his freshman year, lineman ready to get on to the field


HOWARD, from page 29


"That was the hardest thing I ever went
through," Howard said of having to watch
several freshmen such as Pouncey, Major
Wright and Joe Haden get starting gigs.
It was a hard year in general for the de-
fense. But now everyone is talking about the
improvement of the defense.
"Last year a lot of guys didn't make plays
that they could have made," linebacker
Dustin Doe said. "Because they were scared


to gamble or didn't take chances because
they didn't start."
So at least Howard and some of the
young linemen know what not to do.
Howard said he has gotten better at keeping
his arms and feet in constant motion, which
makes it harder for the offensive lineman
trying to keep them from closing in on the
quarterback.
And when an offensive player gets in on
defense, a defensive player's ego needs him
to get out there.
"If he did it," Howard said. "Then I got


to do it. He's a very energetic person, and it
started to rub off on me."
It just rubbed off too late to have any
impact in 2007.
Howard said he thought
he'd come in and compete for
playing time right away, and
Football with such a bevy of young de-
fensive linemen that appeared
to be a legit option.
Apparently that option was more like
a small chance, though, and Howard red-
shirted his freshmen year.


"It was painful," he said. "It was a hard
situation, and it took awhile to get used to. I
wasn't ready to touch the field."
But now, he's getting through gaps and
is even an occasional high-five recipient
from defensive line coach Dan McCarney in
practice. Now, Howard is looking to use his
freshman year's motivation, and with even
more young, talented linemen like Matt
Patchan and Omar Hunter coming, Howard
will need all the motivation he can get.
"It's making me stronger," he said. "I
want it so bad. I'll do whatever it takes."

Cooper bounces back from injury-filled soph. year


* HE STRUGGLED WITH A
HUT FOOT IN 2007.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Riley Cooper can walk off the
practice field with a little more
jum n his step now.
And he's just happy to be able
to jump at all.
The backup receiver has dealt


with a litany of injuries since ar-
riving at UF, including foot inju-
ries that he struggled with most
of last season.
Last fall, Cooper said the in-
jury could best be related to "turf
toe."
That's not an ideal situation
for a receiver who mainly has
run straight-ahead fly routes and
depends on his speed.
UF coach Urban Meyer de-
scribed the problem last fall as a


"toothache in his foot."
A band-aid can't fix that prob-
lem.
"Everyone goes through in-
juries, but not a lot of people go
through one as long as mine,"
Cooper said.
Now, that long time is finally
coming to a close maybe. It's
at least as good as it's been since
last season.
"I'm as close to 100 percent as
I've been since I've been here,"


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator
UF wide receiver Riley Cooper breaks away from defensive backs Wondy Pierre-Louis (4) and Ahmad
Black (35) during practice on the UF Practice Field Wednesday.


Cooper said.
"It's obviously been frustrat-
ing, but it's something I've had
to deal with."
Tim Tebow is probably not go-
ing to be looking Cooper's way
before the likes of Percy Harvin
or Louis Murphy, but he has been
as good as any other deep threat
on UF's roster when he has been
healthy.
Cooper has done most of his
damage against lesser competi-
tion (see Western Kentucky in
2007 and Western Carolina in
2006), but he burned their corner-
backs on nearly every play.
He got 82 yards on just four
catches and three scores against
WCU, and then did much of the
same against WKU when he had
122 yards and two scores on just
four catches.
"I'm as close to 100 per-
cent as I've been since I've
been here."
Riley Cooper
UFjunior receiver

He led the Gators with a 22.8
yard-per-catch average: Tight
end Cornelius Ingram was sec-
ond at 14.9, and Murphy was
third at 14.8.
Now, it's just up to his health.
He also had a broken finger in
2007, and whenever it appeared
he was close to returning, he'd
try to catch with it. And that
didn't go so well. Meyer even
said last fall that his "heart bleeds
for him."
"No, man...he's had a lot of
injuries," Murphy said when
asked if he could imagine what it


would be like to go through all of
Cooper's injuries.
"He's working through it, and
he's a fighter. He's coming along
real good. He's making plays,
and he's still got it."
He's possibly fighting for a
starting spot, too.
Deonte Thompson will prob-
ably end up as the No. 3 receiver,
but if UF goes into four wide-re-
ceiver sets then Cooper is prob-
ably a prime suspect.
And if he goes against a slow-
er safety, Tebow's eyes could get
big as he watches Cooper sprint
down the field wide open.
Cooper believes he has a "le-
git shot" at a startinggig.
"I got a lot of work to do,"
Cooper said.
"That's what two-a-days are
for."
The comeback was not easy.
So at least there were around 50
other players there to help him
through that, and Cooper said
that was key to keeping his head
up.
"That's what teammates are
for," Cooper said.
"To pick you up when .you're
down."
One of the biggest improve-
ments in Cooper's game could be
his route running. So far during
fall practice, he's been running
several different curl routes
instead of just his patented fly
route.
"I've been here two years, so
it better improve or you got to
hit the road," Cooper said of his
route running. "It's improved."
Do you want another good
sign for Cooper?
His new roommate is Tebow.
