The owner of downtown's Club

Gainesville Police saw too much dur-

Dancer Anginita Jones, 21, was
arrested after police reported her G-

bent over and danced on a pole at the
Club at 12 S.W. Second St., according
to a GPD report.

Enrollment



up for vote
SFLORIDA UNIVERSITIES CURRENTLY ALLOWED
TO ADMIT 38,500 FRESHMEN STATEWIDE.

After postponing a vote in September on whether to allow
increases in freshman enrollment, the Board of Governors is
set to vote on the matter at its meeting in Tallahassee today.
In July 2007, the board voted to freeze the number of
freshmen enrolled in the state's 11 public universities, which
was about 38,500 at the time.
Today, the board the State University
State System's highest governing body 1 will con-
NeWS sider whether to maintain the freeze.
Bill Edmonds, the board's spokesman, said
the reason the freeze was initiated was because universities
increased the number of freshmen they accepted each year
even though state funds did not support their tuition.
At the time the board voted to freeze freshman enroll-
ment, 5,627 students in the'system were not covered by state
funds, according to meeting materials.
Edmonds said the board's decision would not affect
transfer students.
He said the board will also discuss its role in the selection
of university presidents. A university's Board of Trustees se-
lects a president, but a proposed regulation would mandate
that the candidate be submitted for approval by the Board
of Governors.
Edmonds said the board already vets the candidates
informally, and the new regulation would simply formal-
ize the procedure. The Ijroposed regulation also states that
when a university's Board of Trustees conducts an evalua-
tion of their president, it should seek input from the Board
of Governors.

With the plummeting economy mak-
ing the metal industry one of its latest
victims, the appeal of stealing scrap
metal for resale could be dwindling.
inCopper-wire theft that skiy o eted

Earlier in the year, the wire was
being Stolen from construction sites,

A law that went into effect Oct. 1 re-
quires companies to keep records on all
clients bringing in scrap metal.
But the prices for metal, which was
an in-demand commodity in August,
have steadily decreased in the past few
weeks because of the lack of demand,
said Skip Bailey, an employee of Ray's
Metal Works Inc.
"No one wants to spend money,"


Bailey said.
Charlie Barnett, a shop fabricator at
Mark Hurm & Co., said August's high
prices are a distant memory, and the
price he pays for metals has dropped
about three percent. '

A team of UF aerospace engineering
students and professors is trying to shrink
space's most frequent flyers.
Nickn~amed the SwampSAT, a 2-pound,
grapefruit-size pico-satellite has been the
focus of the aerospace engineering lab for the
past year.
As part of an effort to create smaller
satellites this fall, the National Science
Foundation developed a five-year initial
tive for the Advanced Space Technologies
Research and Engineering Center at UF's
College of Engineering and North Carolina


State University.
"Nothing like this has ever been done
before," said Vivek Nagabhushan, a sec-
ond-year graduate student working on the
project.
Engineers hope to release the project -
UF's first-ever satellite -in April as lorida's
first orbiting spacecraft, said Norman Fitz-
Coy, a UF associate professor of mechanical
and aerospace engineering and director of
the research center.
Pico-satellites have been around since
2003, and several countries have had them
launched. But at about 4 cubic inches, the size
of the spacecraft makes it difficult to control
its flight path.


The center's goal for SwampSAT is to
test a new system to enhance the attitude
control, or the stabilization of a satellite, so
it's moving evenly through
its' orbit.
"At 500 kilometers
from the earth, a satellite
is moving really fast,"
Nagabhushan said. "If
you want to look at a same
Point four seconds later,
you have to rapidly retar-
Fitz-coy get the satellite with great
precision."
The benefit of having multiple pico-satel-
lites in space is that a more comprehensive


assessment of effected areas during hur-
ricanes, tornadoes or other natural disasters
may be provided.
A typical cost for a small satellite may
be about $100,000, not including the cost of
launching into space, Nagabhushan said.
Several sponsor companies and UF internal
funds have paid for the team's labor and sup-
ply expenses, Fitz-Coy said. After the educa-
tional version at UF is complete, the satellite
will be ready for NASA missions.
"The smaller it is, the more likely it is to
get into space," he said. "Now, you can get
an eight gigabyte thumb drive for cheap, and
years ago, it was as big as a box. Weight is
money in space."

SMAN ROBBED SUNRISE FOOD MART AT 4221
E. UNIVERSITY AVE.

Alachua County Sheriff's Office deputies are looking for
a man who robbed an East Gainesville convenience stole at
gunpoint Tuesday night.
Astore clerk who was standing outside smoking a cigarette
said he noticed a suspicious man completely dressed in black
standing at the pay phone outside the Sunrise
.g,~ Food Mart at 4221 E. University Ave., sheriff's
.eWS office spokesman Steve Maynard said.
When the clerk saw two teenage girls ap-
proach the store, he said he put out his ciga-
rette and went inside to thrig them up, Maynard said.
As the girls went up to the counter to purchase their items,
the man from the pay phone came in wearing a black mask
and a black hood over his head, Maynard said.
Maynard said the man pulled out a single-shot shotgun,
pointed it in the clerk's face and demanded all of the money
in the drawer.
He asked for any money in the clerk's pockets, but the
clerk said he didn't have any, and the man rode away on a
bicycle, Maynard said.
Maynard described the man as a thin, 5-foot-11-inch black
man in his early 20s and wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt,
black shorts and white sneakers.

In June, an arrest was made on the prop-

Police send between four anid 10 officers

Editorial


Back and Forth


Wishy-washy Senate

wastes students' time
Another Student Senate meeting, another editorial.
We're starting to establish a pattern.
In previous editorials, we have questioned, doubted
and rejected Senate's actions for a number of reasons. We've
called senators petty resume-padders and evil conspirators.
Because of this, the Editorial Board feels the needto remind
our readers and ourselves that Senate is not the nucleus
of the Axis of Evil; they just screw up sometimes.
In addition to occasionally putting the collective Senate
foot in its mouth, Senate strives for efficiency and works
diligently to make positive impacts on campus. As easy as it
can be and recently 11as been to bash the Senate, we can-
not ignore its good decisions. Obviously, though, we will not
ignore the bad.
After meeting for five hours Tuesday night, Senate rejected
two pieces of legislation: One piece proposed taking away the
right for senators to call special meetings, and the other would
have cut funding to any facility relying solely on hand scan-
ners as the method of entry.
Staying true to its wishy-washy nature, Senate got it half-
right by voting down both bills.
Taking away the power to call special meetings would have
stripped senators of the basic ability to call for further discus-
sion. In a democratic body, discussion and compromise are
always necessary; any power allowing for more deliberation
shciuld be protected..Good job, guys.
On the other hand, we don't understand why Senate voted
against a bill that would have required facilities to provide
students with alternatives to using hand scanners to enter a
building. There was more than enough student opposition
in the fall Senate elections to let Senate kn~ow hand scanners
aren't exactly students' cup o' tea. Boo on you guys.
The yin and the yang of Senate goes on. We don't expect
anything less. Hopefully, this expected inconsistency will be
traded for something students can rely on.


As Detroit descends upon Capitol Hill desperately
seeking a handout to rescue the flailing automotive
inuty we must consider redefining the American
dream.
Let's be honest does any child in our country grow up
aspiring to be underpaid and overworked as a union mem-
ber slaving away for one of the Big Three automakers?
The notion of the American dream is so amorphous, even
for those struggling in the 313, as we live in a land where
anything and everything is within the realm of possibility.
Instead of Congress opening its coffers to the greedy
and ~manipulative failures that have driven the automo-
Hyve industry into the ground, funds must be allocated to
the workers who will be most negatively affected by the
sector's demise.
I am not talking about handing out checks a la Hurricane
Katrina so workers can go on alcohol-fueled gambling
binges in Vegas but rather so they can secure their financial
futures and prepare for a career-transition.
American cars of yesteryear were nothing short of
engineering excellence. Wax nostalgic for a second, and
conjure images of the Camaro and Mustang in their heyday
- the embodiment of American muscle. All red-blooded
American teens worked tivo part-time jobs with hopes that,
one day, they could be the envy of the neighborhood, too.
Such exhilaration and attachment evoked by these vehi-
cles no longer exists, as the current Mustang sorely lacks the
punch of its predecessors and a new Camaro hasn't graced
the pavement since 2002.
We can no longer kid ourselves into believing that the
Ford Taurus is a viable alternative to the Toyota Camry or
that the Chevy Aveo garners the same credibility on the
street as the Honda Civic. -
Rather than continuing to make a mediocre product for a
higher cost than our foreign competitors, we must embrace
the idea that the best course of the American automotive in-
dristry is to admit defeat and reallocate energies elsewhere.


SWhat would a huge bailout
package do for.the iridustry other
a r~~8 than delay the inevitable anoth-
**, er day in Washington a few years
down the road asking for another
handout?
Let's fairly assume for a sec-
Damiel Seco ond that many of the people who
letters@alIligator.org are working in Detroit car plants
would rather~be doing something

There is a laundry list of reasons why these workers
ended up in their profession: They may have been too poor
to attend college, forced to work to support their family or
grown up in an environment where no other option seemed
viable.
Giving the auto workers funds necessary to advance
themselves through education would be a resound-
ingly wise decision by Congress. This second chance at the
American dream would open up doors that never would
have existed for many.of these people.
If the government decides to aimlessly donate billions of
dollars to the leaders of the auto industry, it might as well
leave it in an unmarked brown bag on a Detroit park bench
and hope to find it there the next day.
Our country cannot be so quick to blindly hand out
money without a calculated plan for success in hand. We
must rethink the distribution of funds to help those with the
highest stakes. The death of the automotive industry cannot
mean the demise of the American dream.
The future for more than a million people lies in the bal-
anc:e pending Washington's decisions. A continued reliance
on the quid pro quo nature of doing business in D.C. will
spell nothing short of disaster for the masses in our nation,

Ticketmaster unfairly duped students
To me, being a Gator means going to
every game in orange and blue, applauding
our team and loudly booing the opposingg

I believe this is my responsibility as a
Gator because I love our team.
When I was told that I would have even a
minute chance of going to the Southeastern
Conference Championship, I immediately
planned to camp out in front of my computer
to await the exact second I could continue to
show my support and cheer on our team to
victory.
I kn~ew it was a slim chance, but it was my
responsibility to try. Plus, I had hope hope
in a fair chance.
I waited, and to my surprise and jubila-

could not select the U.S. as my country.
I went back and lost everything in doing
so. Just like that, my ticket was placed in

Dying bees could spell end for Florida citrus farms


"It's simply colonies dying,

of bees."
Jamle Ellis
UF assistant professor of entomology

Agriculture and Consumer Services.
It is estimated that one-third of the
world's food production depends on pol-
linators such as honeybees,
"If you care where food comes from,
we have to protect our pollinators," Hayes
said.

While ~some people fear bees, they
should instead fear a world without them.
For at least the past two years, bee
populations have rapidly declined, and
researchers are doing their best to better
understand Colony Collapse Disorder
_ the abrilpt disappearance of bees.
Jamie Ellis, UF assistant professor of en-
tomology, said people have recently begun
to notice the declines in bee populations.
"It's simply colonies dying: millions
and millions and millions of bees," Ellis
said.


There is still no certain cause of the rap-
id decrease of bee colonies, but researchers
have established theories to explain it.
Some hypotheses include traditional
diseases, environmental stresses, manage-
ment stress and poor nutrition.
"It's easiest to believe that it's a cumula-
tive effect," Ellis said. "There are so many
things that kill bees. There are almost infi-
nite possibilities at this point."
Because of the great decrease in bee
colonies, American agriculture could be
severely affected.
"Without honeybees, we lose our cit-
rus," said Jerry Hayes, apiary inspection
assistant chief of Florida Department of


in Florida, and certain species of bees are
nearing extinction.
The disorder is unique because the bees
do not return to their colonies, and there
are no carcasses left around the hives.
There are three ways to help stop the
honeybee population from declining, Ellis
said.
Researchers in different specialties can
work together to help find a cause.
Additionally, beekeepers can amend
their practices to alleviate stress and help
bees receive.a well-balanced diet.
The general public can also get involved
by reducing chemical use in gardens and
by supporting apiary research, Ellis said.

Braxton Adamson and his
band, 3 Story Fall, are doing
things backward. Adamson's
played at Gator Growl in front
of 40,000 people. The band has
played in front of enormous
crowds, opening for legend-
ary acts such as Kansas and the
Doobie Brothers, and it has spon-
sorships that provide members
with free instruments, clothing
and equipment. These are all
privileges usually only enjoyed
by major acts, but this band
doesn't even have a record deal.
3 Story Fall, whose sound is
acoustic rock with a southern
tinge, is made up of Adamson
playing acoustic guitar and sing-
ing, Alex Hall on the bass, Nate
Lezniewicz providing the lead


guitar licks and Dan "Chewy"
Howard on the drums and sup-
plying back-up vocals.
The band conjured up the
name after Nate took a three-
floor tumble from an airplane
hangar. He amazingly suffered
no broken bones, and thus, the
band had a name.
Adamson and Lezniewicz have
been playing around Gainesville
for about three years doing the
cover circuit, as Adamson de-
scribed it. Last November, the
band became whole, and with
the addition of .Howard and
Hall it became a full-fledged,
gig-playing band. This year's
Gator Growl, however, was a
solo venture for Adamson after
he won UjF's Talent Night in the


solo category. -
3 Story Fall could not enter as
a band because not everyone was
in town for the tryout. Adamson
played the band's original song
"Title Town," a song about his
beloved Gators.
"It was awesome," he said. "I
got to play for my school in the
stadium."
Adamson's success and com-
mitment to music can be at-
tributed to more than a driving
passion. Music is in his blood,
and his blood is in his manage-
ment team.
Adamson's father is Billy
Greer, singer and bassist of the
rock group Kansas. He is also the
band's manager a luxury most

collaboration between Fabrizio Moretti and Rodrigo Amarante, the debut al_
bum from the prince of New York and his new Brazilian bud taps into a wist-

of ukulele, staccato guitar and love-styled horns, these woozily delicate 10unge-pop songs,
especially standouts "Keep Me in Mind" and "Brand New Start," carve out a singular niche:
irony-free indie for hipsters who dig hula and Frank Sinatra. This might well be a come-and-go
one-off, so here's hoping LJ's "aloha" means hello, not goodbye.

Fast women. Fast cars. Fast-forward all of it. Hinder looks like they're
posing for the next episode of "MTV Cribs" on the cover of "Take It to the
Limit," and their look-at-my-bling posing proves to be, by a long mile, the
most tasteful element of this Mr~tley Criie tribute package. "Use Me" kicks off
the testosterone-fueled showboating with a dazzling display of cocksure guitar rawk sure to
boil the blood of any aspiring Ultimate Fighting champion. The Bon Jovi-ripping follow-up
"Loaded and Alone" will stoke your hair-metal hunger pangs by prompting a crazed YouTube
search for "Livin' on a Prayer." Let's be frank: Hinder is compensating for something. You
know what they say about bands with big vocals and bigger guitars: small ideas.



HEART BURNS

5 TOMGABELYou say you want a revolution, and you got one, Tom Gabel. Now what?
If the measure of -a good protest album is that it still sounds important when
there's not as much to protest, then "Heart Burns" passes with flying red,
white and blue colors. Detached from its weighty political agenda, the fear-
less screamer's solo EP would still rouse a sweaty, brothers-in-arms battle cry, due in no small
part to impressive sonic diversity. Opener "Random Hearts" works as a new-wave dance track
while the folky "Anna Is A Stool Pigeon" best line: "Eric fell in love with an FBI informant"
- peels back layers of calloused tattoos to reveal a soft side. In these lighter moments,, Gabel's
message becomes clear: When you talk about destruction, don't you know that you can count
me out.

The latest trend in pop culture may
never die out that is, if vampires are
.really immortal. Pushing pirates and
wizards aside, the release of books such

LATIN CHINESE MEDITERRANEAN VEGETARIAN


College students in Gainesville
have the ability to go to a different
club or bar everynightof the week
but it can be useful to find a place
that becomes "your spot."
Becoming a regular at a bar
certainly has its benefits. If it's
busy, a regular is able to get atten-
tion from bartenders more quicl than new customers. Not only do
we recognize the person, but we
can usually make his or her drink
without having to ask for an order.
This may not seem like that much
of a convenience, but any time a
bartender doesn't have to fight the


imi 01t nceaoi 2mat eb rt
ers' comp tabs. People that consis-
tently spend money at the same bar
will typically get reimbursed with
freedrinksevertifthebardoesn't
technically have a buy-back policy.


Just because you come
into the bar all the time
doesn't mean you own
the place.

There is more to establishing
yourself as a regular than simply
showing up at the same place five
nights a week. Special attention
and occasional free drinks tend to
come with a certain level of respon-
sibility.
Even if it doesn't seem fair, reg-
ulars are expected to tip more than
people that simply stumble into the
bar for the first time. When you're
getting special treatment, you're
expected to give a little special
treatment back.
While most regulars are a wel-
come addition to the bar scene,
there are those who frequent a bar
without following "the code" and
quickly become the bane of a bar-
tenders' existence.
Just because you come into the
bar all the time doesn't mean you
own the place. Usually bartender
give regulars the benefit of the
doubt when they get a little rowdy,
but that doesn't mean the rules
don't apply.
Telling a bouncer "I come here
all the time" isn't going to stop him
from kicking you out if you start a
fight. Bartenders also don't appre-
ciate you running behind the bar tS
grab a cup, turn up the jukebox or
for just about any other reason you
might try to give them.
Becoming a regular can make
our life like one overextended
episode of "Cheers." Just remem-
ber that with certain benefits comes
certain responsibility.

Blanchard was being recruited,
The Citadel's coaching staff said
getting Roberts was such a big
sigrung.
"Cominlg into my freshman
year, that's what any receiver
wants to be, the No. 1 player on
the offense," Roberts, a junior,
said. "After my sophomore year, I
had a pretty good year. Coach just
told me I was going to have to be
a leader because I was going to be
one of the playmakers on the team.
It was expected."
It's hard to imagine him expect-
ing this type of season.
"We try to get the ball in his
hands in a number of ways,"
H-iggins said. "We'll throw it to
him. He runs with it. He returns
punts. He's obviously the key for
us in terms of being able to move
the football because he does so
much. "
When you're hoping to play in
the NFL, like Roberts is, this game
is an opportunity to see if you can
hang with elite competition.

That attitude the one that makes him
keep pushing himself is a big part of the
reason why Spikes has been named one of five

Fqotball Writers Association of Amenica.
While it was pointed out to Spikes that
his hit on Georgia running back Knowshon
Moreno on the game's second play was a vi-
cious one, he still has a hunger for more.
"I want to knock a guy out of the game,
Spikes said. "You just want to put a guy out,

pect he became.
."He helped me learn how to bang," Chaney
said.
Now, as a freshman at UF, the No. 19 Gators
(2-0) are counting on Chaney's continued devel-
opment.
"Allan has very, very good natural instinc-
tive ability around the basket. I think he's going
to be a very good post-up player," UF coach
Billy Donovan said. "He's clearly one of our
best rebounders."
With sophomore Alex Tyus playing out
of position at center this year and the slow
development of fellow fresh-
man Kenny Kadji, Donovan
hopes Chaney will provide
94 much-needed depth in the
frontcourt.
JIe scored 9 points in the
Gators' game against Bradley
on Sunday.
Donovan, who said he is
Donovanpleased with the effort he has
seen out of Chaney this season, insists that once
he can build up his stamina, Chaney will see
more minutes.
"We did all that conditioning, but you still
have to run hard on every play," Chaney said.
"The game is so much faster (than high school).
You can get lost out there"
SAs Chaney walks across the sunny streets of
Gainesville, he hasn't forgotten what it was like
in the shadows of Baltimore. The city his mother
pushed him away from still holds a special place
for him.
"Carmelo Anthony that's my favorite
player," Chaney said of the Baltimore native.
"I still have a poster that he signed for me.
It's on the wall in my room back in Baltimore."
While Donovan appreciates Chaney's home-
town ties, he ~isn't ready to make comparisons
with the fo mr Syrcscees almrmI Anthny"

11THE UF FORWARD MOVED AFTER HIS
FRESHMAN YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL.

Growing up in the shadow of Baltimore, Md.,
Allan Chaney was constantly moving on the
court, during late nights with friends, moving.
anywhere but the right direction.
"It was kind of hard for me growing up there
- a lot of distractions and everything," Chaney
said.
After his freshman year at Brooklandville
St. Paul's High, Chaney's mother had seen
enough.
She decided her son would move to New
London, Conn., to live with his grandmother.
"My brother did the same thing, and it
worked out for him, so I figured it would work
out for me," Chaney said.
To Chaney, New London seemed about as far
away from the streets of Baltimore as he could
get. ,
"It was a very small city, so there wasn't
much to do besides play basketball," he said.
Basketball became Chaney's release a
place where he could escape the temptations
and distractions, and it's a place where he'll
continue to escape to tonight when UF takes on
Southern Utah at 8 in the O'Connell Center,
Chaney had to adjust to not only a new
school in New London, but also a new position.
Thanks to a growth spurt during his fresh-
man year, he was no longer able to play guard
- a spot he had played his whole life.
"I went to playing power forward, and I
didn't really like it," Chaney said. "But then I

ties.
When opponents make an error, UF pounces
and knocks 'em to the ground and doesn't
let them get up (well, except for that whole
Mississippi madness).
Ah, yes, that game against the Rebels.
The 12:30 contest that spoiled your weekend,
I'm sure you remember it?
You should go give Houston Nutt a kiss.
That man and his team gave the Gators a
bigger kick mn the rear than any Urban Meyer
practice.
For one thing, it made Tun Tebow rally
the troops, which, frankly, is something I just
wo tbde gFaintem and gave it a chip on its
shoulder. The results have been pretty scary
smnce.
Yes, this is an elite football program. Yes, it will
reload and replace (to a degree) stars like Percy
Harvin and Brandon Spikes.
But it takes a perfect storm of events to stew
up what's brewing in Gainesville right now. It's
sotesnp cahn taff at its prime, filled with as-
sistant coaches who might not be here next year.
It's filled with backups who are good enough
to be starters. It's filled with talent.
And it's filled with intangibles.
The fire, so far gone on last year's team, is
back.
So, a few years from now, when you're with
the next girl down the road and pining for this old
2008 flame, just let me say this I told you so.

for at Clemson, Jim Davis, resigned
just before Yenser arrived. After
two years of playing for the Tigers,
she realized there was a better fit
for her elsewhere.
Six days- after she committed to
UNC Charlotte to play for Butler,
Butler accepted the job at UF.
"She's that kid that we have
a ton of confidence in that's
always going to do the right

The two kept in contact, and
Butler eventually asked Yenser to
come to UF: with her, knowing her
new squad in Gainesville needed
a shooter and a leader, something
Yenser could be. .
"She's that kid that we have a
ton of confidence in that's always
going to do the right thing," Butler
said-
"It's a very reassuring thought
to know you've got a voice in the
locker room who is always going
to step up and say the right thing
when it needs to be said."
Not only does Yenser specialize

SSHE SAT OUT LAST YEAR
BECAUSE OF NCAA RULES.

By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC

cy zecali aro g

It appears Susan Yenser's time at

Afe stiag au lst season due
to NCAA transfer rules, the junior
guard gave a glimpse of what she
can do to help her team this season
Monday night.
Yenser played 18 minutes and
sqirred 9 points on 3-of-5 shoot-
ing from 3-point range against
Jacksonville.
She can continue to be a force off
the bench tonight tvhen the Gators
(1-1) host Stetson at 5:30 in the first
game of a doubleheader with the
men's team.
"Basically, I've been waiting a
year and a half for that," Yenser
said.
"I was just waiting for my time
to come, my number to be called.
When your team needs you, you
step up.,,
Yenser, who transferred from
SClemson, had originally committed
to play for UF coach Amanda Butler
while she was still coaching at UNC
Charlotte.
The coach she wanted to play


leadership, but in high school she
wrote and recorded two Christian
rap CDs, all completed in her base-
ment.
It was her brother, not her, who
gave the CDs to her friends to listen
to.
"I was kind of secret about it,"
esletos i.i aIjust did itl bce e
the message out there just about
Jesus Christ."
While she hasn't had anywhere
to record since she has been in col-
lege, Yenser said she still likes to
write poems and songs. ai
was pr tty cool," sai
Marshae Dotson, Yenser's room-
mate last year. "I heard it and I'm
like, 'That's not her.'"
Now, Yenser's teammates
wouldn't mind teaining up in a
musical way.
"They're always like, 'Sue, you
need to write us a song,'" Yenser
said.
"Maybe one day, I talked about
getting all of us together if we could
find somewhere to record, we could
make a song that we would < ome
out to (for each game)."
.While she's not shooting rap
records as much anymore, look for
Yenser to keep shooting like she
has been from behind the are this
season. -
