O'Brien



to speak

Soledad O'Brien is a busy woman.
She is a correspondent for CNN's
Special Investigations Unit and co-an-
chored the network's morning show
from 2003 to 2007.
And now, she's coming to UF.
O'Brien will kick off UF's Hispanic
Heritage Month celebrations with a
speech at the Phillips Center for the
Performing Arts to-
night.
Doors will open
at 7 p.m., and her
speech will be at 8
p.m. The event, co-
sponsored by Accent
Speaker's Bureau, is
rien free and open to the
O'Brien public.
O'Brien wasn't Accent's first choice
as a speaker, said Andrew Guglielmo,
Accent chairman. The bureau originally
pursued Sen. Mel Martinez but later de-
cided to select someone with more cul-
tural experience and name recognition.
"When we reworked our ideals,
we realized that Soledad was the best
choice," he said.
O'Brien, who is of African, Cuban
and Irish descent, will focus her speech
on journalism and diversity post-Sept.
11, Guglielmo said.
O'Brien's appearance will cost
$35,000, according to Alligator archives.
Maryam Laguna, Hispanic Heritage
Month executive director, said she is
happy the speech will be the celebratory
month's first event because O'Brien will
"represent our community."
Other Hispanic Heritage Month
events include a performance by spo-
ken-word artist Mayda del Valle at the
opening ceremony Sept. 15, a talent
show Sept. 23 and a concert by hip-hop
artist Pitbull on Sept. 26. The month's
celebrations end Oct. 19.

Local groups to hold Sept. 11 events


Memorial to be held on plaza


By BRAD GOLDBACH
Alligator Contributing Writer


Seven years ago, the .tragedy of the
Sept. 11 attacks reverberated across the
nation.
Today, the approximately 3,000 peo-
ple who died will be honored through
memorials and activities hosted by a
few UF and Gainesville organizations.
UF's College Republicans set up a
memorial of 3-inch flags in the shape
of 9-11 along with a poster on the Plaza
of the Americas in remembrance of the
attacks.


The memorial was set up Tuesday,
and students have already taken no-
tice.
"I think it was a really good, subtle,
non-in-your-face way to help people.
remember all the victims of Sept. 11,"
said Cassia Laham, a UF
On freshman.
Campus "People who are walk-
ing by can look at it and re-
member and be grateful for everything
they have."
A memorial service will be held at
7 p.m. at the plaza, said Bryan Griffin,
College Republicans chairman.

Smoking down among college students, study shows


By EMILY BLAKE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students at UF and nationwide
have shown that drastic times call
for at least one drastic measure to
quit smoking.
According to a report released
Monday by the American Lung
Association, only 19.2 percent of col-
lege students are lighting up, which
is the lowest percentage since 1980.
The report states that the ris-
ing cost of cigarettes and stricter
no-smoking laws have motivated
students across the country to put
out their cigarettes for good.
UF organizations are jumping on
the bandwagon.
"We're really ahead of the game,"
said Jane Emmerde, health educator
at. GatorWell Health Promotion
Services.
Emmeree said a GatorWell study
performed this spring revealed that
only 8.6 percent of UF students re-
ported smoking within 30 days of
the study.
Because of the recent rise in gas
and food prices, some students have
decided cigarettes are a luxury
According to the American Lung
Association's report, the average
price of a pack of cigarettes has
increased from 42 cents in 2000 to
$1.16 in July 2008.
"The more cigarettes cost and


the more they are taxed, the more
people have to decide between buy-
ing food and gas or buying a pack of
cigarettes," said E. Maureen Miller,
an alcohol and drug prevention spe-
cialist for GatorWell.
High prices aren't the only deter-
rent to smokers since the state
Legislature passed a 2003 amend-
ment banning smoking in many
public areas, such as restaurants,
Florida smokers have been having
difficulty finding a
Student place to take a cigarette
Life break.
UF currently bans
smoking not only in-
side all buildings, but also within
50 feet of them, according to UF's
Web site.
The report stated that more than
130 colleges nationwide have al-
ready taken the next step to ban
smoking everywhere on campus.
Jon Carroll, special assistant
to UF Vice President for Student
Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin, said
because UF's smoking policy was
just established in January, UF is un-
likely to follow suit any time soon.
He said the policy is already
relatively stringent because there
are few areas on campus that are not
within 50 feet of a building.
Despite strict smoking policies
and rising cigarette prices, the repo rt
showed college students remain

the most likely age group to smoke
when compared with the rest of
Americans.
Most student smokers, many
of whom began the habit in high
school, begin smoking primarily for
social interaction, the report said.
"It's an age of experimentation,"
Emmeree said. "Students who do
smoke usually smoke socially."
Emmeree said only about one-
fifth of the 8.6 percent of UF students
who smoke do so on a daily basis.


She said UF health organizations
are trying to bring the percentage of
smokers to a minimum.
GatorWell soon will be offering
discounts on cessation medications
and nicotine replacement patches
to students and employees, she said,
thanks to funding from the Florida
Department of Health's Area Health
Education Center.
Emmerde said GatorWell also of-

spouses. The classes are not offered
to students, she said, but students
can receive one-on-one meetings to
help them quit.
Joseph Neighbor, an anthropol-
ogy junior, said he has cut back on
cigarettes over the years, but that
cigarette prices didn't motivate him
to quit.
Tommy Robey, a business ad-
ministration senior, agreed.
"People who buy cigarettes are
going to buy cigarettes," he said.

UF experts discuss effects of Russia-Georgia conflict


0 CONFLICT MAY AFFECT
PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS.

By ALEXANDRA BIZARES
Alligator Contributing Writer
Five UF experts answered ques-
tions Wednesday night at a panel
discussion concerning Russia's
recent conflict with Georgia and
its potential U.S. implications.
The discussion, labeled
"Russia, Georgia and the West: A
S New Cold War?" attracted about
150 students and faculty members
to the Ocora room in Pugh Hall.
The experts in European rela-
Stions talked about the possibility
of a new Cold War and its effects
on the U.S. presidential election.
g In early August, Russia
launched an attack against border-
ing country Georgia in response to
Georgia attacking South Ossetia, a
small territory that sits within
Georgia's boundaries and wants
to break away from Georgia, ac-
cording to The New York Times.
Paul D'Anieri, College of
Marlanne Lljewski/Alllgator Liberal Arts and Sciences dean,

~0 -


Russia's tone in foreign policy,
however, favors anything that
will prevent the U.S. from becom-
ing more powerful, which may
resemble the Cold War.
The Russia-Georgia issue
could have an impact, on the
upcoming presidential elections,
said Stephen Craig, professor and
chairman of the political science
department.
The crisis could produce a
"rally effect," a spurt of approval
ratings for a political figure, Craig
said.
Similar results have occurred
during the Cuban missile crisis,
Operation Desert Storm and Sept.
11, according to graphs Craig pre-
sented to the audience.
If the conflict has an effect on
voters' decisions, he said, it may
be in favor of the Republican
party.
Discussions like the one on
Wednesday night help make stu-
dents more aware of international
issues, said Katie Kafer, a UF
freshman.
If students aren't told directly,
she said, they won't know about
issues such as the Russia-Georgia
conflict.

UF advertising students work on Nissan campaign


* STUDENTS WILL WORK
DIRECTLY WITH AD COMPANY.

BYTRACEY MCMANUS
Alligator Contributing Writer

An advertising company has
chosen UF to launch a program
that allows competing advertising
students to develop an ad campaign
for the new Nissan Cube.
Zimmerman Advertising's Boot
Camp program is designed to al-
low students to work directly with


an advertising company and cre-
ate an original ad they'll pitch to
Zimmerman and Nissan executives
at the end of the semester, said Mitch
.Hershey, executive vice president for
the company's Nissan Division.
"Our goal is to be able to help
students think and understand as
a company and to give them real,
actual experience on a project with a
real launch that focuses on a Nissan
product," Hershey said. "It also lets
Nissan see how students think."
Although UF has traditionally
offered strategy classes where stu-


dents create campaigns for national
companies, the Zimmerman Boot
Camp is unique because it allows
students to work
UF directly with
Academics the client and
executives in the
advertising agency. -
John C. Sutherland, professor
and chair of the department of
advertising, said this course would
bring more real-world experience to
the classroom and allow students to
grow in a competitive mind-set.
Since most advertising compa-


nies have discontinued training
agencies that recruit and educate
undergraduates, many agencies are
relying on campaign courses to find
future employees.
Agents from Zimmerman
Advertising will visit campus four
times beginning Friday to lecture
on planning, team building and
creative development before the
final presentation Dec. 4. The execu-
tives will pay their own airfare, and
lectures are taught for free.
Students are also motivated to
work with the agency because the


group chosen by Nissan executives
will gain recognition from a national
company and possible exposure if
the company uses their pitch.
The winning prize will be
revealed toward the end of the se-
mester.
"It's going to be a good experi-
ence working for a real-life company
and agency," said Gustavo Noguera,
a UF advertising senior.
"I'm gaining experience in a
real-life situation, so it will help me
with my resume for future job inter-
views."

UF group attracts students to peace project with tie-dye


BY LAUREN PETERSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

A lone, white refugee tent sat Wednesday
on the Plaza of the Americas, adorned with
red hearts and displaying the word "peace" in
languages from all over the world.
Students from the Jewish Student Union
and UF Hillel placed the tent on the plaza to
remind students of the genocide and subse-
quent displaced civilians in Darfur, Sudan.
The sponsoring groups offered passersby
stencils to decorate the tent with messages of
peace and liberty.
Carly Fleisher, a UF Jewish studies junior,
organized the project through a national orga-


nization called Tents of Hope.
The tents will be on display at the National
Mall in Washington, D.C. from Nov. 7 through
Nov. 9 and will later be sent to house refugees
in Sudan.
Fleisher said many people have heard
about Darfur, but few know the extent of the
problems there.
"When people think about genocide, they
say Tm sorry,'" Fleisher said. "You can feel
'bad, but there's still thousands of people dy-
ing.".
She said her main goal was to educate and
move people to action. '
"You can do something, whether it's just
raising awareness by wearing a shirt," Fleisher


"When people think about geno-
cide, they say 'I'm sorry.' You can
feel bad, but there's still thou-
sands of people dying."
Carly Fleisher
event organizer

said.
The Jewish Student Union offered a tie-dye
activity as well, with participants stenciling
phrases such as "Save Darfur" on their T-
shirts.
Jewish Student Union President Jason


Attermann said the group chose tie-dying to
attract people as well as spread the message
about Darfur. The event drew about 70 people,
Attermann said.
Katie Latham, a UF freshman, said the tie-
dying was what interested her initially, but
once she saw that Darfur was involved, she
was even more excited to participate.
Latham said she liked how students could
speak directly to the refugees through the
tent.
Emily Korszen, also a UF freshman, said
she noticed the tie-dye as she was checking
out the Hare Krishna lunch for the first time.
"It made me think there's a lot more going
on than what is in front of us," Korszen said.

presidential candidate was a waste. Instead, the column stated
that Barr had no chance of winning.
There is a difference, even if it is small.
The argument at hand, meaning the notion that is pissing
people off, is that a vote cast for a candidate who isn't affiliated
with either of the major parties is a waste.
What's the point in voting for who you think will win? No
one's going to high-five you for guessing correctly.
No vote is a wasted vote. We firmly believe it, and we will
stand by it.
Republicans and Democrats have a stranglehold on
American party politics, but that doesn't permit anyone to say
that other parties don't matter.
If the Libertarian or Green parties can find and subsequent-
ly establish a firm party foundation, then there's no reason to
believe that they can't build up their following.
Realistically speaking, it will be a long time before a third
party could legitimately challenge for the presidency be-
cause they lack the fundraising ability that Democrats and
Republicans have mastered..
To say that Barr's party can match them is a bold-faced lie.
That being said, if people believe in Libertarian policy or
the platform of some obscure party, then don't they owe it to
themselves to trust their gut and go to the polls for those who
best represent them?


Digital Dominance


Our prayers have
been answered.
Cox
Communications won the
overall large business award
at the Gainesville Area
Chamber of Commerce's
Business of the Year
Luncheon.
And why shouldn't
they?
They've only dominated
the area's cable service for
the past million years (give
or take), so kudos to them.
We can't even think of any-
one else who would be de-
serving of such an honor.
The Editorial Board is
pumped to hear about Cox's
good fortune.
The next time our cable
box suddenly decides it
doesn't want us to order
the Ultimate Fighting
Championship pay-per-
view, we'll just attribute
its lack of compliance to a


regional award-winning
stance against violence in-
volving shirtless combatants
and chain-link fences.
And when the sound con-
tinually cuts out while we're
trying to watch the Jaguars'
and Buccaneers' games in
HD, we'll just settle for the
regular, non-HD networks.
Who cares that we're
paying extra for high defini-
tion every month?
We won't worry because
Digital Max is probably off
shooting a commercial with
the "Savings" of some ran-
dom TV family.
We don't care what John
Madden is saying, anyway;
it probably isn't anything
Frank Caliendo hasn't run
into the ground already.
Does Cox have any real
competition? It seems to us
that Cox has about 14 hotels
set up on Gainesville's Park
Place.

Guest column

Sept. 11 should be a national holiday


hitting quietly in biology class, my eyes were trans-
fixed on the screen in front of me.
Less than 25 miles away, the world was changing
forever.
As the 7th anniversary of the tragic day is upon us, I
offer my petition to make Sept. 11 a national holiday.
Nothing should take precedence over staying cog-
nizant of what disrupted American life as we knew it,
remembering those who lost their lives and commemo-
rating individuals who saved others.
Designating Sept. 11 a holiday is not about barbecues
or shopping, parades or fireworks, but solemn reflection
on what transpired that fateful day.
We remember a stoic New York City mayor who
remained steadfast to the masses left awestruck by the
events of the day.
We recall the bravery exhibited in the final moments
of life by the passengers of United Airlines Flight 93, dis-
rupting the intentions of terrorists and preventing even
more destruction.
And we certainly celebrate the uniformed men and
women who so strongly embodied the characteristics of
the word "selflessness," laying down their lives in pursuit
of helping others.
You may ask why we would want to "celebrate" a day
that has arguably put America in the predicament it cur-
rently faces.
To say we live in trying economic times would be
an understatement. Jobs appear to be nonexistent and
foreclosures on homes run rampant. We don't believe in
the war, and we don't believe in our president. Morale is
low.
If we can take one positive thing from Sept. 11, perhaps


we can look to the widespread pa-
triotism exhibited by Americans
across the country. You couldn't
drive down a street without see-
ing a flag waving in the wind or
spot a bumper sticker proudly de-
Daniel Seco caring, "These colors don't run."
ietters@alligator.org Designating Sept. 11 as a na-
tional holiday could only help to
renew a sense of pride that we so desperately need. As
a defining event in the lives of so many, not making it
a holiday would be a huge disservice because the event
remains so much a part of our lives.
We continue to fight a war waged in response to the
events that took place.
We see a nation preparing to decide on someone to
replace an unpopular president, albeit/one who led the
country through such a trying event. -
We demonstrate our resiliency by erecting the first
steel column of the Sept. 11 memorial in the footprint of
the World Trade Center.
Even with these constant reminders, I wonder if we
have begun to forget Sept. 11.
Our generation cannot allow Sept. 11 to become the
next Pearl Harbor, a defining event of our grandpar-
ents' generation that now fails to raise consciousness
every Dec. 7. We must not let our awareness of 9/11 in
American history disappear, becoming but a blip on the
calendar.
Republican or Democrat, black or white, holiday or
not, today we honor the lives of those lost on Sept. 11,
2001.

Letters to the Editor
U.S. can't afford passive stance
In Wednesday's paper, Rafael
Sabbagh suggested that America
should exercise a "humbler" policy
regarding Russia's invasion of the
sovereign republic of Georgia.
Given our current involvement
in the Middle East, I must reluc-
tantly agree with him.
Russia specifically chose this
moment to invade one of its former
republics because America is firmly,
Guest c.o)i..mn


committed in the Middle East and
unable to lend significant military
assistance to one of our allies.
A diplomatic policy of humil-
ity will not work for long. Russia
sees humility for what it really is
- weakness.
When confronted by strength,
Russia would fold like the school-
yard bully it is. That was the primary
lesson learned from the Cold War.
I hope America's leaders realize


this and refuse to ko
warmongers in Moscov

.

football coach incident.
g last year's Running up the score is for hack
up, but they coaches who are insecure about fu-


ture team performances. They try to
run up the score so when pollsters
review teams' records, they can
cash in on their lopsided score and
say, "See, we blew them out, so that
makes up for our weak performanc-
es against better teams."
It seems UF has definitely taken
the place of Miami in arrests, arro-
gance and classlessness.

New Cold War rhetoric only serves to distract Americans


F first, I want to say I agree with Mr.
Sabbagh's Wednesday column because
the United States is on hard times.
Our economy is bad, our military is
stretched thin and the last eight years have
seen policy decisions so reckless that our deci-
sions have emboldened other states and made
us either hated or ridiculed the world over.
At the risk of sounding like an uber-pa-
triotic neoconservative which I'm not; I'm
voting for Obama we are indeed the great-
est nation in the world. However, the world
is more polarized than Americans sometimes
would like to admit.


Although we're bruised and battered, we
are still undeniably at the top of the heap, but
that isn't why I'm writing.
I want to clear up this new Cold War scare
that Mr. Sabbagh has bought into.
To think a new Cold War with Russia is
looming is laughable at best and sheer igno-
rance at worst. Russia's current grandstanding
is little more than a game of distraction that
Prime Minister Vladimir Putin hopes the rest
of the world and, more importantly, his own
people will buy into.
Talk of another Cold War, which Putin has
been blabbering about since coming to power,


Johnathan is meant to distract the
M. Alba Russian people and
Speaking Out the international com-
munity from Russia's
domestic issues.
Putin uses the facade of a potential Cold
War to mask his concentration of power, the
grossly unequal distribution of wealth and the
ever-present danger of breakaway provinces.
Russia's economy is booming because of
skyrocketing energy costs, allowing Putin to
line the pockets of the rich oligarchy while the
average Russian is worse off than they were at
the height of the Cold War.


Worst of all, the world looks the other way
because governments have their hands tied by
their dependency on Russian energy.
Let's be honest people don't give a damn
about other people, but if a Cold War threatens
to disrupt their precious, self-centered worlds,
all of a sudden they have a problem.
The U.S. not sending ships to Georgia is
exactly what Putin wants.
He's counting on a distracted, ignorant
American public and a lame-duck president
to ignore him.

history junior.

Chamber of commerce honors local businesses


* HIPPODROME WINS
NONPROFIT AWARD.

By ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Writer
Local businesses large and small
were honored Wednesday with
awards from the Gainesville Area
Chamber of Commerce.
Brice Business Group, a local real
estate consulting company, and Cox
Communications received top hon-
ors in the overall categories at the
Business of the Year awards.
Cox won the overall award for


large business, and Brice Business
Group won for small business, said
Nickie Kortus, events manager for
the Chamber of Commerce.
"We try to recognize businesses
that are leading the pack," Kortus
said.
Winners were chosen from out of
29 finalists in seven different catego-
ries, such as innovation, entrepre-
neurship and newcomer.
Kortus said anonymous judges
scored each application, which
includes questions about how each
business operates, treats employees
or positively impacts the area.


"It feels awesome. I think
the level of competition
was good. We just didn't
think we had much of a
chance."
David Miller
president of Brice Business Group

Overall winner Brice Business
Group, which deals with energy-
efficient housing, also received the
newest award for commitment to
the environment.


The group is the second business
to win the commitment to the envi-
ronment award.
David Miller, president of Brice
Business Group, said he was sur-
prised to win.
"It feels awesome," Miller said.
"I think the level of competition was
good. We just didn't think we had
much of a chance."
Other winners included Indigo,
an environmentally friendly store;
Centric Studios, a Web design com-
pany; Home Magazine; Advantage
Publishing Inc.; and Florida Food
Service Inc.


This year's nonprofit award
went to the historic Hippodrome
State Theatre.
"We're really happy to be recog-
nized by the chamber," said Mary
Hausch, producing director for the
Hippodrome.
Hausch said the application
was intense, and she attributes the
Hippodrome's win to its originality
and unique theater performances.
She also said she has high hopes
for next year.
"Well, I don't know if you can
win it twice in a row, but we'll sure
try," she said.

UF received $45 million for research


GPD looks. for woman


Gainesville Police have released
pictures of a woman who could be con-
nected with a recent string of muggings.
The woman in question was shown on
surveillance cameras using a stolen debit
card at the Wachovia ATM on Northwest
13th Street at midnight Aug. 28, GPD
spokeswoman Summer Hallett said in
an e-mail.
"We want to make contact with her to
find out where she might have gotten the
cards from," Hallett said.
Hallett said police have been unable to
release a description of the woman, who
was wearing a long floral dress and a blue
head scarf in the picture.


Investigator John Pandak said the
woman could be connected to five or six
muggings that have occurred in the mid-
town area since August.
The most recent hap-
LOCal opened early Tuesday at 3200
News W. University Ave. when a
credit card, cell phone and
about $50 in cash were stolen from a 19-
year-old woman, a report stated.
Most of the victims have been walking
home alone early in the morning, Pandak
said.
"College students are being targeted,"
he said.

Acosta is one of more than 30 UF
professors and students involved in the
project, the largest contingent from any
university in the U.S.
Guenakh Mitselmakher, also a
UF physics professor, said the U.S.
Department of Energy gave UF about
$45 million for research relating to the
particle accelerator. Mitselmakher, who
is in charge of dispersing the money,
said only about $10 million will stay
at UF. The rest will go to other research
teams.
UF's portion of the money has
funded a number of projects related to
the accelerator, all of which have Nobel
Prize potential, he said.


But the most important project
involved building end-pieces for the
accelerator's particle detectors, which
detect the presence of certain particles

said.

end-pieces, which detect subatomic

Ring My Morningbell


BAILEY PARKE AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER


Members of local psychedelic
rock band Morningbell were in a
daze. They traveled to Bonnaroo
this summer as they had the pre-
vious two years of the festival. But
this year was different. They were
not there as fans to enjoy the
music of the bands they look up
to. They were there to perform
alongside them.
Travis Atria, Eric Atria,
Stacie Thrushman and Chris
Hillman, who together make up
Morningbell, were in a whirl of


exhaustion and amazement. They
camped out for the. festival get-
ting little to no sleep. Yet their
weariness was drowned out by
excitement when they took the
stage to perform in front of a
crowd they would normally be a
part of.
They stepped offstage to let
B6la Fleck step on. They mingled
and discussed lyrics with Broken-
Social Scene. They felt like equals
to their idols.
Bonnaroo was a dream come


true.
"It was really one of those
types of things like it just
shouldn't happen," said Travis
Atria, vocalist, and guitarist.
They mingled and
discussed lyrics with
Broken Social Scene. They
felt like equals to 9
their idols.

"You're just like, 'This can't be
happening right now,' but it
was. It was awesome."
Playing Bonnaroo was just one


of many goals that the band set
out to accomplish this year. While
many bands' main objective is to
get signed to a major record label,
the members of Morningbell take
a different approach to the future
of the band, said Eric Atria, bass-
ist and Travis' brother.
"This tour, we wanted to do
more shows than we did last
tour. We wanted to go more plac-
es," he said, "and we did that."
Morningbell hit the road on
June 11 to travel through 19 states
in 17 days to play 13 shows. They
drove north to Chicago, then east
to New York and finally made
their way back to Florida.
Along its tour route, the band


created lasting memories, while
visiting various U.S. landmarks
and staying with family and
friends.
"The tour was the most fun
I've ever had in my life, I think
not just in the band in my life,"
Travis Atria said. "There's no bet-
ter goal than that right?"
His favorite part of the tour
was visiting one of his old
college professors in North
Carolina. They stayed in a cabin
built on the side of a mountain.
"We had to make sure the
windows were locked because
the bears knew how to open the

windows," he said. "I didn't sleep at all
that night."
On a day off from touring, the members
got to see an exhibit in New York City by
David Byrne from Talking Heads called
"Playing the Building." The free exhibit
was a sound installation in an old building
in the southern part of Manhattan, Hillman
said.
An organ was set up in the middle of a
big room with the pipe system run through-
out the building, he said. Whenever a


different key was hit, it would activate
different things throughout the building
such as a hammer or the air conditioning
compressor.
"It almost sounded like a haunted
house," Hil2man said. "It was very memo-
rable."
Eric Atria said being on tour was like
being in their own little world away from
home.
"You're just in your own little universe
that relies on gas stations, smoky bars and
people's floors," he said.
When they were on the road, their main
concerns changed drastically from their


comfortable lifestyle at home.
"Your priorities decrease exponentially,
wondering where you're going to eat,
where you're going to sleep and where
you're going to get wireless Jntemet," he
said.
Now that the band is back in town, it
has a new set of goals to work toward, in-
cluding embarking on another tour.
"You really look forward to getting back
home, but then after a day or two home,
you really want to go back out again," Eric
Atria said.
Until then, they will be working on their
new album due outinMarch. Morningbell's


objective for the new album is to write more
energetic pop songs, which is a change of
pace from their previous albums.
"So that's been the goal for me, just try-
ing to do something different and expand,
which is scary because you know you
could fail easily at that," Travis Atria said.
Morningbell will be playing in The Real
Big Deal Festival at the Alachua County
Fairgrounds on Sept. 13 from 1 p.m. to 1:40
p.m. on the main stage. Tickets purchased
the day of the event start at $35 for a one-
day pass. The band also has a free upcom-
ing show on Sept. 18 at the Orange and
Brew on UF's campus.

Bartender seen it all after years in Gainesville's bar scene


Football season is officially
in full swing, which takes the
Gainesville bar scene to a com-
pletely different level. For seven
weekends every year, Gainesville
is transformed from a typical col-
lege town into a 48-hour party in-
cluding everybody from alumni
to toddlers.
Things usually get started
Friday night when people hit the
bars and clubs to get pumped


up for a Gator beat down on
the Volunteers, Seminoles,
Hurricanes, Tigers, Wildcats or
whichever opponent we happen
to be facing that weekend.
Most college students and
Gainesville residents are disap-
pointed when they get to their
favorite bar or club and realize
that they not only have to pay
cover, but they have to wait in
line as well. I understand it's


Although tailgating
requires you to shell out
some cash, it's probably a
lot less than you would be spend-
ing at a bar, and you can party on
your own terms.

upsetting to college kids, who are
on a budget, but alumni and out-
of-towners are willing to pay, and
bartenders and bouncers' No.1
concern is keeping the bar full of
people that are spending the most


money.
The best advice I can offer
college students is to participate
in the other form of "nightlife"
that football season has to offer
- tailgating. Although tailgat-
ing still requires you to shell out
some cash, it's probably a lot less
than you would be spending at a
bar, and you can party on your
own terms.
Some tips on tailgate etiquette:
Never finish all the food or booze


at somebody else's tailgate unless
you're willing to go get mflre,
and always make sure you've got
plenty of Gator gear. Face and
body paint get bonus points.
So go a little wild because all
of us at the bar scene depend on
it. Just try not to be the person
that should have left the bar three
hours ago. Build up your stafw-
throughout the season, and by the
UF vs FSU game you'll be able to
spend all day toasting the Gators.

Real Big Questions


Interviews with really big bands for the Real Big Deal Festival


It's kind of a big deal, and it's festival in 10 years.
coming to Gainesville. The Real Big Promoter Pat Lavery of Glory
Deal Festival rolls onto the Alachua Days Booking, a local talent buying
County Fairgrounds Sept. 13 and and booking company, played a key
plans to make some real big. noise role in helping put together the fes-
until Sept. 14 as Gainesville's first tival and is hopeful about the Real


Big Deal's longevity because of the
unique nature of the event.
People from all walks of
Gainesville are expected to camp
out in what might resemble this
city's own Bonnaroo, the renowned


outdoor musical festival occurring
in Manchester, Tenn., every June.
The lineup features headlining
bands Motion City Soundtrack,
Mae, Mates of State and Drive
By Truckers along with local


Gainesville bands.
For a complete list of bands at the
Real Big Deal, the extended versions
of the Q&As below and more Q&As
with local bands, visit the Alligator's
Web site at www.alligator.org.


Pop-punk band Motion City
Soundtrack has been funkifying festival
scenes since its formation in 1997 and
rocking around the world with the likes
of Blink 182, Fall Out Boy and Incubus.
The band, which is now working on its
fourth album following the success of
"Commit This to Memory," will per-
form in Gainesville at the Real Big Deal
Festival on Sept. 13. Bassist and back-up
vocalist Matthew Taylor talks with the
Alligator about the band's future, travel
habits and what they love about the fes-
tival scene.

AVE: What do you guys do when you're
bored on the road?
MT: It depends. I, we have a million
DVDs and video games and books and
all that usual stuff. When we just hang
out on the bus, we do any of that. I like to
walk around the town a little bit.
AVE. Do you have any experience with
groupies?
MT: Like again, we're kind of like the
erdy band that just kind of...I don't
i m'fow. We'll go out. But I don't know.


We have fans that pop up all over the
place that hang out, and I don't know,
hang around. I guess. But we don't re-
ally.. .we're really not that band.
AVE: You're not like the Jonas Brothers
with a bunch of crazed girls running after
you?
MT: No, (laughing) those guys are out
of control now. The biggest band in the
world! Blows my mind.
AVE: How much do you believe about
those promise rings? They wear promise
rings to symbolize that they'll wait until
marriage...
MT: (Laughing) Yeah, give them an-
other year. Those things are in the trash.
AVE: So what can we expect next from
Motion City Soundtrack? What changes
can we expect, if there will be changes?
Taylor: Well, I'm always a proponent
of change, and not in a drastic way 'cause
its a fine line you have to walk being in
a band and making a new album. You
know, you don't want to alienate your'
fans. But you do want to grow, and I
know I, myself, I'm going back in time.

Mates of State

Minus one organ and plus one new baby,
the husband-and-wife musical team Mates of
State return to Gainesville for the first time
since March 2006. Calling from a houseboat
in the middle of a lake, Hammel discusses the
band's rearrangements, what its like touring
with two young daughters and why America
is ready for change.

AVE: "Re-arrange Us" just came out in May,
and I think one of the big differences is you
don't have the organ this time around. Is that
part of the rearranging?
JH: Definitely. Usually the way we end up
titling records is we make the album and see
what happens, what the underlying themes
are. Going into making a record was all about
not using the organ. When we were writing
songs, we were realizing we were having more
fun writing songs without the organ for the
first time in our band's history. By the end of
it, we were like, "Yeah, we didn't even use that
thing." Maybe big changes are in store.
AVE: You guys have been all over the world.
What are some of your favorite memories from
being abroad?
fH: Man. there are so many good places -
that's what I've reahzed from all this travel-
rig. Australia %we loved may be our favorite
country in the world Takes forever to get
there, though maybe a 24-hour flight from
New York Australia loved Scandinavia -


JORDANA FYNE AVENUE WRITER

like Sweden, Norway. Japan is great. There are
so many great places in the world, and that's
one thing that being in this band has afforded
us, being able to see those places.
AVE: What was one of your favorite things
you saw while there?
JH: I got to surf, which was pretty fun. I
started surfing around two or three years ago,
so I'm a beginner, but I love it. And the guy
that promoted our show took me out surfing
- he's been surfing 25 years but he took
me out, and I realized quickly the waves were
much too big for me in Australia.
AVE: What did your parents do when you
were growing up?
JH: My mom was a nurse, and my dad is
a respiratory therapist. They both worked. I
grew up in Minnesota, which has the Mayo
Clinic there, which is like the biggest hospi-
tal in the world, so everybody in that town
worked there. Both my parents as well. That's
where I grew up.
AVE: One of the other things you did -
I'm -a big NPR fan is I heard you got to go
on "This American Life". How was that?
[H: That was super fun. In our music career
it feels like a real accomplishment For the first
time, w e did lust the piano and drums set. And
also. just to be part of the show with the other
writers and Ira (Glass) arguably the greatest
storyteller in radio today it was really fun to
be a part of it and feel like we contribute to it.


MAE
Multi-sensory Aesthetic Experience

After the merger of their record company
Capitol Records and the subsequent release
of their new album "Singularity," the mem-
bers of modem rock group Mae realized
something: This isn't working. Despite ex-
periencing severe debt, lack of management
and a minor existential crisis, the band set
out to find out a new way that did work.
Drummer Jacob Marshall talked about the
group's upcoming show in Gainesville, its
trials with finding management and where
it wants to go from here.

AVE: I just had a few questions to ask you
about your upcoming Gainesville show and
some stuff about what you guys are up to.
Have you ever been to Gainesville before?
JM: Throughout the years we've had a
lot of different friends who are either going
to school there or grew up in the surround-
ing areas. It's cool. From the beginning of
our blnd, we've tried to be as connected
as possible to our fan base through the
Internet, and a lot of students have re-
ally taken advantage of that throughout
the years in a good way. But I feel like for
us that it's facilitated community in that
perspective. It's kind of been the strongest
thing that's enabled our band to do what
we've done so far.
AVE: So you guys have been working on
a new album?
JM: We actually got off Capitol Records


CAITLIN HEAD AVENUE WRITER

a few months ago, and a lot of different la-
bels were interested m picking up the next
record. But we had kind of hit a low point.
honestly, because we had worked really
hard for 13 straight months and ended up
over a hundred thousand dollars in debt.
That's a discouraging place to be. Two of
our members had gotten married and spent
all that time away from their wives. Two
of our guys ended up deciding that they
couldn't continue to justify being away
from their families losing money, and it was
very clear at that point that without some
major changes it just didn't really make
sense to continue.
AVE How has this affected the music you
write?
JM: It's funny. I think that it has affected
us obviously in the way that we've dealt
with the music business, but the bigger
picture is presented in how you look at life.
When you face hardships, you can either be
stopped by those hardships, or you can re-
group, you can band together, and you can
persevere, and you can overcome them.
AVE: So you guys are going to keep going
until the fans aren't there, until you're going
gray?
JM: I hope so. There's a healthy momen-
tum that's just now starting to regain its
speed and its power. My hope is that people
see the impact of the results from their par-
ticipation in their big experiment with us
and are encouraged to continue it.


Drive-By Truckers KRISTIN BJORNSEN AVENUE WRITER


With a cup of tea in one hand and her
iPod shuffle in another, Drive-By Truckers
bassist Shonna Tucker sat down with the
Avenue to chat about "beat that," her love
for Tom Petty and touring.

AVE: So, what are you doing right now?
ST: Not really much right now, just made
some tea, just kinda got my iPod shuffle go-
ing. That's one thing about what I do.
AVE: Is there anything specific in
Gainesville that you're looking forward to
doing or seeing?
ST: I have no idea. In every town we go
to, sometimes there's zero time for that, and
sometimes we have a day and a half to do
stuff. I kind of have a feeling we're going
to be in and out of there. But, maybe I can
vacation there one day.
AVE* Is there anything particularly
memorable that you've seen recently or in
the past years?
ST: That's always a tough question. We
have some constant tours, and it all be-
comes a blur. But, you know, once I get off
the road and get home I can think back and
kind of reminisce a little bit. It's really hard
to say one particular thing that stands out,
but this time Europe was really, really super
great for us. We had a really good time. Did
a lot of great festivals. Got to see Tom Petty


and the Heartbreakers last Saturday.
AVE: You know they're from Gainesville?
ST: Yeah, I know, my favorite band and
I'd never seen them until last week, so that
was a huge thrill.
AVE: I have to say, you guys do have a
Tom Petty sound.
. ST: Why, thank you. I know we all grew
up just studying him and still adore him.
AVE: Do you guys have a favorite pastime
while on the bus for however many hours?
ST: No, we just mostly, we listen to so
much music. There's probably an iPod for
each person on the bus, so we have a nice
iPod dock in the back. And a lot of the times
we carry out a little record player. We go re-
cord shopping a lot. Still like the old vinyl.
AVE: Do you guys normally listen to the
same thing, or is there any competition for
the iPod dock?
ST: There's no competition. We some-
times play a game called "beat that."
Someone starts in a circle, someone will
put their iPod on, and then if you go in any
direction whatsoever, play a song, and then
the next person as soon as that song's over
has to come up with something just as good
or better.
AVE: You're going to be playing this Real
Big Deal Festival here, so, I have to ask, do
you think you are a real big deal?
ST: (Laughs) Well, I don't know about
that. It depends on where we are.

New Kids stray too far from The Block in new album


ROBERT HILSON AVENUE WRITER
Caution: Objects in your rearview mirror
are older than they appear.
Let's face it: In the rearview is where boy
bands should stay. Not all devastatingly suc-
cessful phenomena are meant to launch a
resurgence. Even fewer garner enough enthu-
siasm to actually warrant such a return. That
said, New Kids on the Block are back on the
block.
The band is again fully intact and, by the


looks of it, defying both good taste and male-
pattern baldness. With "The Block," New Kids
on the Block continue to carry the torch for
awkward Caucasian rhythm and blues.
Of course the timing of this thing wasn't
so hot. There's the age factor the young-
est "kid" here shares his birth year with
Watergate. Still, the guys put their respective
projects on hold. You have to admire commit-
ment.
The leadoff single "Summertime" .proves
the most conventional, and in turn, digestible


. .


1I


*:l.


of "The Block's" 13 tracks. The layered harmo-
nies reek of pop cliche, but let
it slide. The Kids pioneered
this ear candy during the
Reagan administration.
"Grown Man," with soul-
ful vocals courtesy of The
New Kids on Pussycat Dolls, is actually
the Block acceptable as well despite its
"The Block" refrain, "I'm gonna give you
$11.99 some grown man." Believe it
or not, this is a high point for pickup lines on


the record.
"'Tut It on My Tab" is notable only in that
it features Akon, whose heavily processed
vocals come off like Daft Punk robo-rap.'If my
copy wasn't free, I too would ask him to put it
on his tab.
Hype or no, "The Block" doesn't have the
material to sell like "Hangin' Tough" or "Step
by Step." Yet the members of New Kids on the
Block no longer need record sales to grow their
bank accounts. That's what Social Security's
for.

UF goes for third straight win vs. CU


The Cindy Bathelt and Kristy Jaeckel Files


VOLLEYBALL, from page 23

State will present a different feel for
UF's six freshmen.
"You have to be more mentally
prepared because you're not in your
element," Bathelt said. "You don't really
know what the locker room is going to
look like, and you don't really have the
same routine, so you kind of have to be
flexij with what you do."
For Jaeckel, there will at least be
some level of familiarity playing against
Colorado.
Her mother attended the university
and her parents moved the family back
to the area from California when Jaeckel
was 12.
Bathelt, on the other hand, grew up
two and a half hours south of Boulder,
and said she was an Air Force fan be-


cause it was just across Interstate 25
from her house.
As for the rest of the squad, the last
time UF took on the Buffaloes, only
the team's juniors (Elyse Cusack and
Kristina Johnson) and seniors (Kelsey
Bowers and Christina Diaz) wore
Orange and Blue.
The Gators came
away with an easy 3-
S 0 (30-19, 30-21, 31-29)
Volleyball victory in Honolulu.
Volleyball With a very differ-
ent group, of players
set to take the court in Boulder, UF
will try to defeat Colorado for the third
straight time.
"A team theme of ours has been to
play with toughness," Jaeckel said.
"On the road is where we have to
prove that and show that we don't have
to play at home to be a good team."

hurt.
"That's another thing that you never have to
worry about," Henry said. "In high school, you
can have some of those moments where you're
not real sure where the ball is going to go, but
having James Smith out there, who's a four-year
starter, he's been doing it a long time.
But Henry's career didn't start that way. Meyer
remembers Henry as "stiff and very unflexible"
when he started at UF.
The sophomore works with senior Bobby


Kane and former Gators punter Eric Wilbur to
hone his skill.
"Last year, my first game
was a little panicky," he said.
I "Also, with the 90,000-plus
(fans) you don't see that in
high school. There were a few
more people than a high school
Football game."
Henry's mistake last year
led to an impassioned commit-
Henry ment this team.
"That was my promise to the team that will
never happen again."


EVAN, from page 23

against Charleston Southern in
week one. On that drive, already
up 45-7, his team even went for it on
4th and 3 with 4:28 remaining. They
converted on an 8-yard rush, and
then went on to score a touchdown.
While Shannon's statement did
imply he would not run up the score
(even though he clearly would), it
did not decry Meyer for doing the
same. He probably enjoyed UF's
field goal if he thought it would help
him get recruits for years to come.
Former Hurricane Warren Sapp
threw his hat into the ring Tuesday
when he called Meyer a "class-
less dirtbag" on a teleconference
for Showtime's "Inside the NFL."


Really, Warren? Is that necessary?
Sapp's comments demonstrate
perfectly that this entire thing has
been blown out of proportion. I'll
admit it's fun to stir the pot a little,
asking questions that you know will
get controversial responses.
But this? This is different. A field
goal to give a kicker some experi-
ence before a big in-conference game
is not worth four days of back-and-
forth bickering. There's no need for
fans to get so riled up about this, and
there's no need for the blowhards of
the world to hurl insults at Meyer.
To say college football is just a
game would be trivializing how
much money goes into the sport and
how seriously people take it.
But getting all huffy about a 3-
point kick? Please, people. It's just
a field goal.

Two Gators head home for match


* KRISTY JAECKEL AND CINDY
BATHELT ARE FROM COLORADO.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

In the first two weeks of the season,
freshman Kristy Jaeckel has received two
Southeastern Conference Freshman of the
Week awards and a couple of tournament
MVPs.
When No. 8 UF (5-0) takes on Colorado
(6-0) tonight, the dynamic outside hitter
will. continue an impressive start to her
season as she will get the opportunity to
play in her home state two time zones
away.
Jaeckel and freshman setter Cindy
Bathelt were both recruited out of Colorado
and chose to attend a school nearly 2,000
miles from home.
"Location and how far from home
wasn't really a factor for me," Jaeckel said.
"I just tried to look at schools that had the
best reputation for winning and success,
and Florida was definitely one of the ones
that has the best (reputation)."
After participating in a volleyball camp
before her junior year of high school,
Bathelt, too, felt Gainesville was the place
for her.
When it came time for the Colorado
Springs native to choose a school, she said
distance wasn't a factor, but the weather
was.
"I figured, if I can get a full ride to go
anywhere in the country, why not pick
some place that's always warm?"
The two return home from their new
tropical climate as key contributors to the
Gators early season success.
Jaeckel has posted a team-high .319 hit-
ting percentage and led UF in kills in all
but one of its matches.


Meanwhile, Bathelt, who stands at just
5-foot-9 a small height for a volleyball
player is second on the team with 5.56
assists per game.
On Monday, the Gators recorded a vic-
tory in their first road match of the season,


but Tallahassee is just a stone's throw
away from Gainesville in comparison to
Boulder.

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

The memories of last year's
Auburn loss continue to stick
with him.
Chas Henry botched his
final punt against the Tigers
last September, recording only
a 25-yard net on the possession
change. Auburn's offense got
the ball at the 39-yard line, and
then Henry could only watch
in horror as the Tigers marched
35 yards down the field, setting
up Wes Byrum's game-winning


field goal as time expired.
"Every day I go out to prac-
tice, I think about it," Henry said.
"That's the game that I feel like
I let the team (down). Fourth
quarter, big play, we need it, and
I didn't come through. That set
with me all last year."
Henry had a 25-yard punt
against Miami on Saturday,
shanking it-right and out of
bounds.
"When I hit the one off my
foot, it's the same-type feeling,"
Henry said. "That brought back
the memory of (the Auburn
game). That is not a good feel-


ing."
His commitment to improv-
ing has showed.
"I've got my punter.
I don't want anyone
else."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

The sophomore has averaged
48.3 yards on his 11 punts this
season and has six punts of 50-
plus yards, including a long of
60. In the thost important punt-


ing category balls pinned in-
side the 20 Henry has four.
"I've got my punter," coach
Urban Meyer said. "I don't want
anyone else."
Henry averaged 39.3 yards
per punt last season but hopes to
bring that number up to 44 or 45
this season.
"That's a high, lofty goal, but
with the guys we have on this
punt team, it's possible," Henry
said.
Having a veteran long snap-
per like James Smith doesn't

debate

n the three days since quarterback
Tim Tebow blew a gasket while
defending Urban Meyer from the
wayward verbal attacks of Miami
coach Randy Shannon, much opinion
has accumulated.
The Alligator's inbox has been
flooded with fan letters, readers have
posted comments under the article on
the Alligator's Web site and I have
been tagged in a Facebook note about
the issue. I've even been assaulted by
one of our photographers with inqui-
ries about Shannon's sanity.
S Some
have -called
Shannon a

a crybaby.
Some have
said Meyer
Evan Drexler is a jerk for
The Drex Factor running up
edrexler@alligator.org the score.
Now, I
decided, it's time to so ighten things
out.
First, the facts:
Shannon, after the Gators kicked
a late field goal to cushion their lead a
in UF's 26-3 victory on Saturda1`
night, suggested the extra 3 points
would show people Meyer was inter-
ested in embarrassing his Hurricanes.
Shannon did not use Meyer's name,
but implied the score-padding will
help Miami when it comes to recruit-
ing.
UF kicker Jonathan Phillips, to that
point, had not made a field goal in his
career.
After practice on Monday, Tebow
exploded, coming to Meyer's aid
with an emotional series of rants, in-
cluding this one:
"I'll have coach Meyer's back
on anything. To say something like
that about coach Meyer isn't true at
all. He's one of the best coaches in
the game. That's why I came to the
University of Florida."
Comment-posters and letter-writ-
ers have accurately called Shannon a
hypocrite for being upset at the field
goal when the Hurricanes scored
a late fourth-quarter touchdown
