Ex-GPD officer charged with prostitution


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
kemmets@alligator.org

The State Attorney's office filed three
charges of prostitution against former
Gainesville police officer Bill Billings
Wednesday, after seven months of investi-
gations revealed that he paid prostitutes for


sex.
The internal affairs report states that 14
women said they had sex with the former
corporal in his marked patrol car while he
was on duty.
Billings, 51, resigned in August after the
investigation began in June.
Although State Attorney Bill Cervone
said there is no mandatory sentencing for


the misdemeanor charges, Billings could
face up to a year in jail and between $500
and $1,000 in fines.
Cervone said felony
Local charges are still pending on
News Billings for stealing money
from GPD.
When investigators put a GPS tracking
device in Billing's car, it was discovered that


he was paid more than $6,000 for overtime
assignments that he never worked, accord-
ing to Alligator archives.
If convicted of the felony charges, Billings
faces up to five years in prison and up to
$5,000 in fines in addition to his misdemean-
or sentences, Cervone said.

Groups take


census on


homeless

By HUNTER SIZEMORE
Alligator Writer

Jayne Moraski knocked on tent flap after tent flap
at tent city on Wednesday, poking her head in to ask
Gainesville homeless about their lives.
She asked, "Are you currently employed?" and
"What caused you to become homeless?"
Moraski was a part of a larger project that tracked
what services the homeless use in
Gainesville and collected data from
jails, schools and other organiza-
tions.
The Alachua County Coalition
for the Homeless and Hungry and
the Gainesville/Alachua County
Office of Homelessness took the
DeCarmine census from Tuesday to Wednesday
morning.
Volunteers were paid $10 an hour to canvass
Gainesville, visiting shelters, churches and other plac-
es where the homeless commonly spend time, includ-
ing Tent City and other camps.
Many of the volunteers were homeless themselves,
providing an advantage in picking out other homeless
people in a crowded room or finding camps that are
not well known.

UF Senate
By LAUREN BAKER

For the second time in UF's
history, a member of Student
Government's executive branch will


party


files impeachment against president


face getting the boot.
A resolution to impeach Student
Body President Kevin Reilly was
filed last Thursday by five senators
of SG's minority party- the Orange
and Blue Party.
Today the 46 senators elected


last fall will meet at Hillel at 6 p.m.
to vote on the
Student issue. A two-
Government thirds vote is
required to sus-
pend Reilly from office.
Removing him from the position


would require a subsequent trial
and a three-fourths vote from sena-
tors elected in spring.
Orange and Blue Party Sen. Sam
Miorelli, co-authored the resolution.
"The charges that we make are
simply irrefutable," Miorelli said.


The three-page resolution stacks
six allegations against Reilly, in-
cluding violations of Student Body
statutes and last semester's e-mails
scandal.
Reilly was one of four SG officials

Dean charged with stealing from UCF
ORLANDO (AP) The University of Central Florida reports
that an associate dean used a school credit card to buy $40,000
worth of home entertainment equipment. Jail records show Jamal
Nayfeh turned himself in Wednesday and was released on bail.
A UCF official says a routine budget audit in early January
revealed the charge was made to Nayfeh's purchasing card in
December. The school official says UCF police were notified shortly
after finding the charge.
Nayfeh, who has been at UCF for 18 years, is an associate dean
of the College of Engineering and Computer Science and a profes-
sor of mechanical engineering, according to the school's Web site.

BOG to discuss


Pell grant funds


By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Staff Writer
Ibaker@alligator.org
Florida's Board of
Governors will meet again to-
day as part of a two-day ses-
sion, addressing two topics
that will center on saving stu-
dents money, in the session's
final day.
The issues of interest will
pinpoint the $24 million in Pell
grants that went unclaimed by
Florida resident students in
the State University System,
said Bill Edmonds, the board's
spokesman.
Edmonds said Thursday's
discussionwill center on sav-
ing students money.


"We'd love to get $24 mil-
lion from the legislature, but
that's not going to happen,
we've got a budget crisis
going on," Edmonds said.
"Meanwhile it's there for the
taking."
Another consideration in-
tended to cut students' costs
may be the requirement for all
pro-
U F fessors

UPD enforces skateboard law


* SKATING IS ILLEGAL ON
ROADS OR IN BIKE LANES.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org
Students have skateboarded
to class for years without much
trouble, but that all changed
Wednesday as the University
Police Department conducted a
"saturation detail," targeting skate-
boarders and pulling them over if
they were skating on the street.
Four motorcycle officers, four
officers on bicycles and a canine
unit were out in shifts from 8:30
a.m. to 10:30 p.m. to educate stu-
dents about Florida's skateboard-
ing law, said UPD Lt. Stacy Ettel.
The statute makes it illegal to
skateboard or roller skate on roads
or in bike lanes, though crosswalks
are fair game.
Because many students are un-
familiar with the law, officers gave
warnings to students who had
never been ticketed for the offense


before, Ettel said.
UPD planned to ticket anyone
with a prior offense. Tickets carry
a $52.50 fine.
The department will be con-
ducting saturation details every
Wednesday where it focuses on a
specific issue like seatbelts or hel-
mets for scooter riders, Ettel said.
"I think the law's pretty
ridiculous. I don't see why
a bike can ride in the road
and a skateboard can't."
Ryan Hance
UF psychology junior

Skateboarding was the first fo-
cus of the semester, he said.
Over the years, skateboarders
on campus have run into pedestri-
ans and vehicles and also injured
themselves on steep hills, he said.
The number of people on cam-
pus makes skateboarders a hazard
to themselves and others, he said.
"It's just congested and some-
thing has to be done," he said.

Ettel said skateboarders stopped
on Wednesday had no idea the law
existed.
Ryan Hance, a UF psychology
junior who received a warning for
skateboarding Wednesday, said he
disagrees with the law.
"I think the law's pretty ridicu-
lous. I don't see why a bike can
ride in the road and a skateboard
can't," he said.
He said he has skateboarded
to class ever since he came to UF
and never had any problems until
Wednesday.
He said the officer who pulled
him over told him he could ride on
the sidewalk instead.
"I was like, 'Well, the sidewalks
are pretty packed,' and he's like,
'Well, looks like you're gonna have
to walk then,'" he said.
Ettel said he understands
Hance's concern, but thinks the
roads aren't any better.
"The roadways are just as
crowded with the amount of ve-
hicles, scooters, motorcycles, state
vehicles (and) police vehicles," he
said.

Bus rapid transit system discussed at RTS workshop


By MORGAN COLLINS
Alligator Writer

Improving transportation and
making city buses more hip were
among the topics discussed by
Gainesville residents Wednesday
at a workshop sponsored by the
Regional Transit System.
The workshop, held at
Gainesville Regional Utilities'
downtown headquarters, was
part of the city's ongoing effort to
remodel the bus system using the
"bus rapid transit system."
Bus rapid transit systems are
designed to cater to more pas-
sengers and run more efficiently.
The cost of this system would be
about $6 million to $10 million
per mile, covering bus service
and vehicles.
The workshop was a way to get
community feedback, said Doug
Robinson, chief transit planner
for RTS.
"We're going to need local
support for this to get going," he
said.
Robinson said he thinks the
benefits of a better bus system
would surpass the costs.
With this system, buses could
reduce wait time at traffic lights
by having signal priority. With
signal priority, buses send a sig-


nal to a receiver on a traffic box to
change the light.
The system could upgrade
buses, replacing current vehicles
with more modern, aerodynamic
and fuel-efficient models.
The proposal for Gainesville's
bus rapid transit system will only
focus on densely populated areas
that face transportation problems,
Robinson said.

"We're going to need lo-
cal support for this to get
going,"
Doug Robinson
RTS chief transit planner


"The idea is to start small and
grow something that's success-
ful," he said.
The current routes extend for
about 38 miles.
The city plans to submit an
application for federal funding,
which requires applicants to sub-
mit information on traffic pat-
terns and the number of riders,
Robinson said.
"We need people to want to
get behind this as something that
is helpful to the community," he
said.
There are 83 cities around the
world that use versions of the bus

rapid transit system, including
Portland, Ore., and Los Angeles,
said Jaime Lerner, the former
mayor of Curitiba, Brazil, who
helped his town remodel its tran-
sit system.


He said all cities have three
issues in common: mobility, sus-
tainability and coexistence.
Bus rapid transit can fix these
problems because it reduces road
congestion, which reduces car-


bon emissions. The system is ef-
ficient and increases riders, bring-
ing more people together, Lerner
said.
"We all are affected," he said.
"We all are a part of this change."

Plan would allot $20.8M to schools


By MORGAN COLLINS
Alligator Writer

Alachua County schools could
get a financial boost if Congress
passes President Barack Obama's
economic stimulus plan.
Under his proposed American
Recovery and Reinvestment Act
of 2009, Alachua County's public
schools could get about $20.8 mil-
lion over the next two years, ac-
cording to data from theU.S. House
of Representatives' Committee on
Education and Labor.
The money would go toward
programs such as special educa-
tion and building construction,
according to the data, and many
feel like Alachua County's public
schools can use some extra help.
"We're certainly in need," said
Frank Burns, the principal of
Hidden Oak Elementary School in
Gainesville.
He said 85 to 90 percent of state
education cutbacks force schools
to make tough decisions like re-
ducing the number of teachers
and cutting special programs like
art and music.
But with Congress still debat-
ing the stimulus plan, it's too early
to expect money to come pouring
into the district, Burns said.
"We're just concentrating on
getting through this year," he
said.
Alachua County schools have


a 5-year plan to manage schools
going through budget cuts, said
Jackie Johnson, a spokeswoman
for the School Board of Alachua
County.
Each year the state reviews and
updates the plan, which runs until
the 2012-2013 school year.
Johnson said she wasn't sure
what criteria
Congress would
use to determine
how schools re-
ceive aid.
"If federal
funding were to
come our way, it
Obama would be terrif-
ic," Johnson said.
Overcrowded and run-down
schools are two of the biggest
problems facing the county,
Johnson said.
Most of the schools are more
than 30 years old and need about
$193 million in repairs, she said
Alachua County's state funding
has dropped severely as a result of
statewide budget cuts, Johnson
said.
Even property taxes collected
to support schools won't help be-
cause a recent Florida law requires
the money normally reserved for
upgrades to be used for operating
costs, Johnson said.
"It's essentially to mask the
amount of operating funds we are
losing," she said.


The other option for the district
is to take out mortgages against
school facilities, but this is only
allowed for certain programs and
won't fix most of the problems,
Johnson said.
She said Alachua County has
not sent program proposals for
the plan.
The county shouldn't wait too
long to address the problems,
Johnson said.
"It's like a car," she said. "If
you don't fix a small problem
now, it becomes more expensive
later on."
Chris O'Leary, 27, who has a
daughter at A. L. Mebane Middle
School in the city of Alachua, said
the lack of funding is harming his
daughter's education.
A teaching shortage at the
school separated his daughter,
Aileen, 13, from her favorite social
studies teacher. The school moved
the teacher to another grade be-
cause there weren't enough social
studies teachers in that grade.
The school also dropped elec-
tives and crammed more classes
into a shorter school day to make
do with budget deficits, O'Leary
said.
Schools cannot last much lon-
ger in this state, said O'Leary, a
UF senior.
"It's like asking a poor person
to live on $5 less," he said.


Nat'l report: UF


endowment solid

* THOUGH UF'S ENDOWMENT INTIALLY FELL,
IT HAS RECOVERED ABOUT $5 MILLION.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

A national report released Tuesday shows that UF's
endowment has fared much better than those of other
colleges and universities.
While endowments at the 796 institutions surveyed
lost an average of 3 percent from July 1, 2007 to June
30, UF's endowment grew by 2.6 percent, according to
the report from the National Association of College and
University Business Officers.
UF was one of 77 institutions with an endowment
larger than $1 billion.
At the end of the survey period, UF's endowment was
$1.25 billion.
A follow-up survey, which examined the period from
July 1 to Nov. 30 when the economy slumped, showed
that endowments fell an average of 22 percent.
UF's endowment shrunk almost 20 percent to about
$1 billion in the same period, according to numbers pro-
vided by UF Foundation spokesman Chris Brazda.
In December, though, the fund recouped about $5 mil-
lion.
Since 2002, UF has climbed from No. 76 to No. 60 on
the list of institutions in the report.
Brazda said UF is happy with this year's numbers and
credits UF's success over the years with its long-term in-
vestment strategy.

Campus convenience stores like those at
Little and Pugh halls stopped selling some re-

The cost will be absorbed by UF's suppli-

No products have been pulled from cam-

As of Wednesday, 432 recalled peanut

to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention. Florida hasn't reported any cases

Orange and Blue Party out of Senate commit-

"Obviously, that's the first thing on the
list," Miorelli said.
But Reilly said the resolution's claims are
"absolutely not" valid enough to warrant im-
peachment.
Poring through the document, Reilly
poked holes in the allegations and said his


involvement in the e-mail scandal did not
violate Florida's Sunshine Law.
While he admitted to

that his role in the e-mails

ment, the first instance over the summer

Miorelli said the party was conflicted
about how to act concerning Reilly.
But Senate President Jordan Johnson of the

ment was a publicity stunt.

it was the last campaign," he said. "I don't
think there's any doubt as to the motives."

Editorial


'Souper' Stimulus

Barack's budget plans

are mmm-mmm-good

Put away the government cheese, the House just passed
President Barack Obama's stimulus package to the
tune of $819 billion.
Wednesday evening saw what appeared to be a big win
for the Obama administration, as a vote of 244-188 gave his
plan the green light.
While Obama shouldn't exactly stay awake at night ques-
tioning why no Republicans supported the bill, the Editorial
Board can't help but wonder why there was no love from
across the aisle?
Regardless, the Democrats' strength in numbers allowed
for the stimulus package to pass in Congress, which gives
us the opportunity to start discussing how the money will
be spent.
Based on reports from CNN, the Obama stimulus pack-
age will highlight four distinct areas of need, ranging from
tax cuts to creating jobs.
What we really like is the fact that almost $150 billlion
may end up being spent on education. Not to mention the
$20 billion to help feed the hungry with increased support
for food banks as well as expanded lunch programs.
The Editorial Board extends a warm congratulations to
Obama for taking a proactive approach in addressing the
economic criss afflicting the nation.
Heck, Obama's been in office for just over a week, yet it
seems like he already has quite the handle on things.
By potentially providing $300 million in tax cuts for citi-
zens and businesses as well as creating as many as four mil-
lion jobs for Americans, the stimulus package may prove to
be the proverbial chicken soup for the economic soul.


Budget Bowl


ypically synonymous
with Super Bowl week,
celebrity-filled bashes
may be taking a backseat to
the game thanks to the sput-
tering economy.
Perhaps the most highly
recognizable party from year
to year, Playboy's slump-
ing circulation forced Hugh
Hefner to cancel his annual
gala in favor of a scaled-
down affair.
Hef isn't the only one
coming to terms with a de-
pleted bank account, as nei-
ther Nike nor TIME will be
partying it up on Florida's
left coast this weekend.
Let the Editorial Board
shed a tear for all the
A-listers and socialites who
are feeling the effects of the
recession perhaps for the
very first time.
Don't fret, Gator Nation;
there will be more than a
few soirees in Tampa if you
are on the fence about mak-
ing the drive down 1-75.
It's hardly a surprise,


but legendary partyer Sean
"Diddy" Combs, who prob-
ably doesn't know how to
spell r-e-c-e-s-s-i-o-n, plans
to throw what should prove
to be quite the blowout.
Dubbed "The Good Life
Experience," Diddy's three-
day event will feature the ul-
timate in opulence as party
decor reportedly includes a
plethora of diamonds and
pearls.
And the strangest event
of the week? A party hosted
by boxer Antonio Tarver and
Nelly at a science museum.
The Editorial Board must
concede we had no idea ce-
lebrities go for the whole
wine and dinosaur thing.
So maybe you won't
be rubbing elbows with
Playboy bunnies or compli-
menting Hef on his smoking
jacket, but we can assure you
Kim Kardashian and her sis-
ters will be running around
somewhere.
They count as celebrities,
right?

Opinions


Column

Obama's religion a
resident Barack Obama has been given a number
of religious titles in the past year, ranging from
"secular progressive" to "secret Muslim," yet all
the while he has professed to be a Protestant Christian.
Rather than delving into Obama's religion, let's start with
an easier question:
Who is Michael Newdow?
You probably don't recognize the name, but you've all
heard of him. Newdow, better known as "that guy," is an
attorney best known for his work to remove the words
"under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance and "In God
We Trust" from U.S. currency.
Despite failures in all of his attempts, Newdow was at
it again as recently as this month this time attempting
to remove "so help me God" from the presidential oath
at the inauguration.
Even with the support of numerous individuals and
groups, Newdow once again failed to have those words
stricken from the inaugural oath.
Mr. Newdow, why do you keep trying?
You're not going to win on constitutional grounds.
The Constitution was drafted by an overwhelmingly
Christian group to protect the freedom of religion, not
freedom from it. The separation of church and state is no-
where to be found in the Constitution. The Constitution
only prevents Congress from passing laws "respecting an
establishment of religion."
Congress didn't pass a law to force anyone to say these
things; they are said out of free will. It would be an un-
constitutional compromise of free speech for any court
to tell us otherwise. You would think that alone would
be enough religious controversy for one inauguration.
Wrong.


ALLIGATOR
www.alligator.org/opinions


Constitutional right
Yet another conflict started when
Obama chose Rick Warren, a fiscally
liberal, socially conservative evan-
gelical preacher, to give the inaugu-
ral prayer.
This sent Obama's pro-gay-
Johnathan Lott marriage support base up in arms.
letters@alligator.org How could Obama possibly choose
a preacher who didn't support gay
marriage when he spent his campaign issuing pro-gay
rhetoric like "my religious beliefs say that marriage is
something sanctified between a man and a woman?"
Obama tried to soften the blow to his supporters by
asking openly gay bishop Gene Robinson to say another
prayer, but the gesture was met with a lukewarm recep-
tion. Then Warren offended more people by committing
yet another blatant act of intolerance. He dared to use the
name of Jesus Christ! In a Christian prayer!
Atheists, secular humanists and other groups who fan-
cy themselves "progressive" need to get over the fact that
some people are, in fact, Christian. Religion is a large part
of many people's lives, including Obama's by his own
admission. People like to talk about their religion and
express it publically. And the Constitution's free exercise
clause gives them every right to do this.
If Michael Newdow wants people to refrain from talk-
ing about their religion, he should find a better way to
do it than filling the court system with frivolous public-
ity-stunt lawsuits that attempt to deprive people of their
rights. Thankfully, we have the Constitution to prevent
him from doing that.

more. His column appears on Thursdays.

Letters to the Editor
Columnist takes himself too seriously
As a recovering Christian, I find some
of the proclamations of faith in Turlington
Plaza extremely hard to swallow. I do not
understand how screaming "You're all
gonna die" is supposed to bring people to
Christ. It is a ludicrous idea.
I found the picture on the front page of
the Alligator to be incontestably appropri-
ate. I applaud the person who deemed the
picture front-page worthy. When I saw
the poster stating "Homo sex is sin" and a
"threat to national security," I could not help
but laugh. This person deserved to be called
"Richard Simmons' biggest fan."
This wasn't blatant disrespect for
Christian tenets. It was an emphasis on the
hilarity of the lengths to which some go in
sharing their convictions. Nobody of any
creed, Christians, Muslims and Buddhists
included, should take themselves so seri-
ously.
Molly Mosher
4LS

Column lacks understanding of Bible
Dean Early's column pertaining to the
front-page photo on the January 22 issue of
the Alligator is rife with contradiction, both
in theology and logic.
The opinion presented is that the Alligator
prints hateful journalism about Christianity
that specifically villainizes the religion and
those who practice it. He goes on to say that
he tries to "avoid the Alligator as much as
possible." How can one form an accurate
opinion of the content of a periodical when
that person does not even read it?
Early is later quoted saying that J.K. has
the "freedom to preach about the ills and
abomination and immorality of homosexual
behavior." He is correct in that J.K. has the
right to speak his mind, but this is a two-


way street. Scott Paterson is entitled to the
same rights as J.K., including the right to ex-
press himself, which is exactly what he did.
If Early and the throng of angered citizens
he seems to think are behind him want an
apology from Paterson, are we not entitled
to one from J.K. and Early for expressing
their opinions? Do I now have to apologize
for even writing this?
I also must have missed the memo circu-
lating around campus about the conspiracy
to overthrow the Christians, because I have
not seen or heard anything about this sinis-
ter scheme.
Apparently Early thinks UF professors
view Christians as "mindless robots that
can't think for themselves." He goes on to
speak for them, claiming they believe "the
Bible is inaccurate, unreliable, bigoted, hate-
filled and outdated."
As far as I have been able to comprehend,
his entire argument is littered with inac-
curate information, bigoted, close-minded
thought and hate-filled rhetoric.
The Bible is dragged into his fallacious
article numerous times, as a bulwark to hide
behind and avoid the piercing gaze of truth.
I was under the impression we were sup-
posed to love our fellow man, not condemn
them or threaten them with violence. Early
seems to be of the opinion that if someone
disagrees with his viewpoint, violence and
diatribes about the superiority of Christian
thought are the answer.
Does he really believe Tim Tebow, whom
he seems to hold in high regard, would re-
sort to such tactics? How dare he try to lump
an outstanding person like Tebow in with
himself.
For someone who claims to have strong
religious fiber, the anger and hate which
permeate throughout Early's column are
staggering. He could easily turn the other


cheek as Christianity teaches if he truly be-
lieved in his faith. Why is it that when some-
one makes incredulous claims we are able to
shrug them off and even laugh about them,
but when there is at least a grain of truth, we
become angered and defensive?
Perhaps we should be the ones consoling
this man, for it seems he is the one who has
lost his way, not from faith, but reality.
Michael Herrmann
Gainesville resident

Meaning of Christianity misconstrued
I would like to send out a newsflash to
Dean Early, as he is the embodiment of rot-
ten Christianity. As a Christian, he should
know that we are not called to be respected.
We are not to be honored or given the same
leeway as other religions.
That said, his article was the most hate-
ful, bigoted garbage I've read in some time.
I would ask the UF campus to not take
his words as representative of the greater
Christian population.
Perhaps Early should pick up his Bible,
as he will find his behavior closer to that
of the Pharisees than Christ. The world, or
Gainesville, is not waiting for the "message"
to get out in hateful and insensitive ways.
They've heard it all before. They are wait-
ing for us to show them something different,
intriguing, and thought-provoking. What
Early has done with his self-martyring,
hypocritical tirade is further alienate his
community from the most incredible thing
in existence.
I, as a Christian, will not join him in his
quest for pseudo-justice. I will, however,
join the homosexuals in their offense at an
unloving, bigoted Turlington preacher, for
that is damage worth repairing. As far as
I'm concerned, Dean Early, your convoluted,
violent religion, complete with all its rules


and violence, can go to hell.
I'll be here, with my Bible and my Jesus,
treading quietly against the tsunamis of ha-
tred you so readily dish out.
Elliot Morgan

Religious tirade needs no response
I would like to honestly thank you for
printing Dean Early's column detailing how
aggrieved the whole religion of Christianity
is, due to your front page photo showing a
student flicking off a "preacher."
I was going to write a sarcastic letter.
Then, I changed my mind and decided to
write a serious letter, picking apart Early's
loosely coagulated arguments one by one.
But I no longer think that's necessary.
What needs to be debunked? What really
needs comment? Nothing does. Early's let-
ter speaks for itself. Straight from his heart
- whenever it actually does beat, mind you.
Do I have to point out how Christians are not
a single collective entity? That it is ridiculous
to think that a slight against any Christian
is a slight against them all? If a Christian is
executed for committing murder, does that
mean every Christian dies?
Must I point to the parts of the letter
where it rambles on and on and on? Should
I even bother to tell Dean that those "proph-
ets" are no more Christians than Sigfried is
a successful tiger trainer? Need it be typed
down that they incite college kids to strike
them on videotape, so that these "prophets"
can sue them and have them kicked out of
school? And, if it is not this one, then the
others that preach the same detritus do so?
No. None of this needs to be said. I think
that once Early started to threaten to beat
Christian values into UF students, he al-
ready stopped being a Christian.

Grooveshark gives free grooves


MARY MANCHESS *
AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER

The Internet has opened up new platforms for
the musician and music lover.
Grooveshark, a Gainesville company, is a Web-
based music application that aims to improve the
connection between people and music.
By providing on-demand access to music, as well
as live performances, Grooveshark introduces the
artist to the fan and vice versa.
On Saturday at CommonI picked
Grounds, Grooveshark is host- the best
ing a show with Matt Butcher
and the Revolvers, along with honest from my
The Ones to Blame and The Matt Butc
Deep and Holy Sea. Doors open singer-
at 9 p.m. and tickets are $6.
The show is the first of 2009, and it will be one of
the five or six shows Grooveshark puts on a year.
Matt Butcher and the Revolvers is the headliner
for this show. Matt Butcher, or MB, has no real ex-
pectations for the show other then to play well.
"Just playing live to people, that's one of my fa-
vorite things to do," he said. "As a songwriter too, it
is a way for you to connect with a complete stranger.
I feel a connection there, even though we've never
talked before."
The concert has been set up around the release of
the 25-year-old singer-songwriter's new album, "Me
and My Friends."
MB said he is very proud of the album because of
its honest storytelling.
"I picked songs that were the best fit and the most
honest from my life," he said. "Even before I put the
record out, I already considered it a success because
I liked it."
Aside from his new album, Butcher is also look-
ing forward to seeing The Ones to Blame perform.
The last time he performed with the quartet was
when he was a part of a band called The Headens.

Grooveshark, said she saw the two artists perform
a few years ago and thought they produced a good
dynamic.
"It had been a couple years since the two had
played together and I thought it'd be really great to
see them again on stage," she said. "And then The
Deep and Holy Sea really complements their style."
Josh Bonnain, Grooveshark's vice president of
sales and marketing, wants the show to be a fun
experience not just for he audience, but also for the
musicians and producers.
St w "If it wasn't for entertainment
ongs that were

fe. You don't appreciate an act until
er you see them actually perform-
ongwriter ing in front of you."
The show was originally go-
ing to be at the end of December,
but due to winter break and the lack of students in
town, they decided to wait.
"Every time we do a show we try to make sure
it'll impact the artist, so it helps the artist," Bonnain
said. "At the end of the day it gets people to associ-
ate a great experience with Grooveshark, and that's
what we want to provide."
The show's timing also harmonizes with The
Deep and Holy Sea, who will be the opening act. It
has been a couple of months since the Gainesville
band has performed at home.
"We have been doing a lot of recording, practic-
ing new material," guitarist David Turbeville said.
"We've been on tour for a while so I'm pretty excited
to play in Gainesville with all our friends."
The band is also preparing to release its new al-
bum in spring.
"I feel like there is a lot more continuity because
everybody has been playing together for a while."
Turbeville said fans could look forward to hear-
ing both new and old music at the show.
"I think it's going to kind of sort of draw a di-
verse group of people."


'Trashed talk' eases convos


ERIK VOSS AVENUE WRITER
As the youngest member of a family of
seven, I was the last one to start drinking
alcohol.
My tardiness out of the womb made me
the "designated son," which included clean-
ing up the house, listening to drunk rants
and driving home from the

patience to. In fact, you could
say I have more success with drunks than
with sober people.
I don't know what this says about me,
but I try not to think about it.
A positive side effect: success with
women. I remember one instance in which
I shared a couch with a theater major in a
cocktail dress.
"Oh my God," she observed. "Your face
is so adorable!"
Hours earlier, this mess of smeared mas-
cara and moppy hair was probably a cutie.
Now, her head hung loosely on her neck as if
she was a fresh corpse. By the coats of glaze
over her eyes and the tequila on her breath, I
could tell she had a few too many.

Now, some skeptics out there doubt a
drunk's sincerity. What those skeptics fail
to see is the unrestrained honesty people ex-
hibit after a few shots of truth serum.
How many family reunions have been

"That's so true!"
Cut to an hour later: the group of drunks
around me burst into laughter. I successfully
turned the couch into a drunk-haven. Even
Tequila Breath felt comfortable enough to
pass out on my shoulder. It was like some
glorious dream.
But a dream's all it was. On the ride home
(in which my sober friend found me consid-
erably less interesting), I felt ashamed. Is
that what it takes to get people to talk to me
getting them completely trashed?
Hopefully soon I'll be able to find a way
to hold conversations with people without
requiring them to impair their vision and
judgment first.

Sadly, there is no happiness at the
well-kept house
on Revolutionary
olutionary Road. Instead, the
rs a bleak, film tracks a hope-
, account less quest for a re-
bedroom vised American
Prove to Dream- ultimately
nce. leading to dire con-
sequences.
Beyond the stel-
lar efforts of the two leads, Michael
Shannon delivers a gripping perfor-
mance as John Givings, the medically
troubled son of the Wheelers' real es-
tate agent. His brutal honesty provides
a stark contrast to a world willing to
subscribe to self-delusion.
Revolutionary Road offers a bleak,
if not sobering, account of how life in a
bedroom community can prove to be a
trite existence.
For many, the plight of Frank and
April Wheeler may not deviate so far
from their own.





10, ALLIGATOR T THURSDAY, JANUARY 29, 2009


LATE OF THE PIER
FANTASY BLACK CHANNEL
Worlds collide in Castle Doning-
ton, England. Devo grows up a
punk band; disco hones its chops
at CBGB; black leather sprouts se-
quins. Late of the Pier wears the
side effects. A four-piece from the
British Isles, the young new wave act shows off all
manner of mishmashed influences, piecing togeth-
er a sound that filters the '80s'choice bits through
a laptop, distorts them to hell and discards every-
thing else. This cut-and-paste style makes room
for swirling synths, Nintendo-bleep percussion,
even Sabbath-lite riff rock ("Heartbeat"). But these
secondary players all feed off the band's bread
and butter: the almighty groove, which achieves
a heightened state in the form of the menacing
electro-blast called "Whitesnake" It's a song that
unlocks imaginative, other-dimension scenarios
- two-steppers take over Studio 54; Madge learns
guitar; hipsters dance to power chords.

THOM YORKE
THE ERASER REMIXES
The beat-challenged white man's
attempt to appeal to please cool
urban people, the remix album al-
ready exists as something of a su-
perfluous curiosity, but gains an
added aura of"WTF?"whenever
someone as supremely talented as Thom Yorke
indulges in its futile pursuits. It is safe to say that
each and every one of these nine edits resurfaces
inferior to its predecessor, but The Bug's adapta-
tion of"Harrowdown Hill"takes the butcher-job
crown as it (for lack of a better term) erases the
track's devastating electric guitar coda. Elsewhere,
Various'"Analyse" rendition kills any sense of
rhythm with stuttering drum machine percussion
and layers of reverb. Yorke includes two versions
of"Black Swan,"which would seem laughably un-
justified if not for the chorus's eloquent summation
of the remix:"This is f----d up/ f----d up."

GLASVEGAS
GLASVEGAS
Glasvegas takes its name from
hometown Glasgow and Sin City,
which means that the Scottish
quartet has an uncanny knack for
haphazardly conjoining words
and musical trends. To the sur-
prise of no one, the NME crowd has anointed
these Clash look-alikes London's latest and great-
est craze du jour as This Month's Beatles manage
a sound that pillages from almost every English
musical movement of the last three decades. Shoe-
gaze grandeur? Check. Ringing Edge-style guitars?
Check. The Smiths'melodrama? Oh yeah, it's there
-- most shamelessly in the form of"Lonesome
Swan,"a hackneyed rip of"l Know It's Over"with
a guitar line set to the latter song's "Then why are
you on your own tonight?" melody. Particularly
grotesque is the Joe Strummer knock-off "Stabbed"
that repeats ad nauseam,"l'm gonna get stabbed."

W Cruel Intentions


. How to find and seduce a valentine


ASHLEY ROSS AVENUE WRITER


There are only about two weeks left
until that dreaded holiday, the one full
S of an obnoxious amount of pink, with
roses everywhere and events planned to
remind you that you're single.
S Oh yes, Valentine's Day. You either
love it, or you hate it. And most people
usually hate it; so don't feel bad if you're
slightly bitter.
But just because you don't have a
S valentine right now, doesn't mean that
you can't have a valentine in a couple of
weeks.
S There are plenty of ways for you to
find someone out there who is worthy of
fully stocking your cabinet with scented
S massage oils and body chocolate.
What you must remember, though, is
* that it is not going to come easy. Don't
think your lame pickup lines are going
to do the trick. Around V-Day, people
0 tend to be a bit more sensitive.
Girls can be easier to seduce because
they are lonely, or they can be extremely
* stubborn. Guys might be tentative to let
someone seduce them out of the fear
of being dragged into an awkward "Be
mine" situation.
But regardless of loneliness, stub-
bornness or fear of attachment, play your
Cards right and you will have plenty to
do on the 14th.
* First thing to remember is not to go
after the unattainable. The whole shoot-
for-the-moon thing does not really work
in these kinds of situations. If you are re-


ally looking for some fun, and you know
they are out of your reach, don't even
try. It's crunch time, people.
So before you go out, take time to
make yourself look sexy. Guys, this
means dressing sharp and confident
in colors that make your best features
stand out.


You've got to act and
feel seductive for others to
think you are.


Girls, let's make this very clear: you
can look sexy without looking slutty. It's
okay to show a little skin, but don't ex-
pose too much. Plus, if you're going to
seduce a guy, you want to seduce one
who wants you, not just your body.
Regardless of what you are wearing,
though, it is most important to be confi-
dent. Don't necessarily play hard to get
- that silly game is just annoying to ev-
eryone but don't be overly available
because everyone loves a little chase.
You've got to act and feel seductive for
others to think you are.
Of course there are the normal ways
to seduce someone. Flirt your heart
out, bat your eyelashes or flash a smile.
These are all clearly easy to do and usu-
ally work well. But they are far too over-
done and boring.


With V-Day right around the corner,
you've got no time to waste. You can
work some interesting magic that will
make your skills stand out above the
rest.
Scents are very sexually sensitive, and
there are plenty that can help you reel in
your bait with one simple whiff.
The first tip is to make sure you smell
good, which is why cologne and perfume
are a good idea. It has been proven that
men are attracted to scents like lavender,
vanilla and even pumpkin pie.
But there are sneakier ways than
smelling nice that can make you as se-
ductive as ever.
There are many foods out there that
tend to cause arousal. Foods that cause
sexual excitement are known as aphro-
disiacs, and oysters are at the top of the
list.
Serve these, or even better, feed them
to your love interest and you'll have
them literally eating out of the palm of
your hand.
So, what are you waiting for? The
clock is ticking. Use these sexy seductive
tricks to be sure you are not wallowing
in self-pity on Valentine's Day. It is time
to use all of your best moves, best lines
and best foods.
But who knows, perhaps you won't
even need to go the extra mile to ensure
a lover on V-Day. You could just meet
that special someone, and regardless
of how you smell or what foods you're
feeding them, you might just have them
at "hello."

A




with STREETLIGHT
MANIFESTO
HENRY TAKSIER
AVENUE WRITER
Streetlight Manifesto, New
Jersey's beloved third-wave ska
band, will play Wednesday at
Common Grounds. The show,
which also features A Wilhelm
Scream, The Swellers and The
Stitch Up, begins at 7 p.m. Tickets
are for $14.
Taksier interviewed Tomas
Kalnoky, the band's creative
leader, who first gained fame
as a member of Catch 22.
Tell me about third-wave ska.
Third wave ska? I don't know.
We're just musicians. We're not
really concerned with the histories
of genres and whatnot. We just
make music and throw in every-
thing we've grown up with: ska,
punk.

What do you like to write songs
about?
Day-to-day, month-to-month,
life. I try not to write too much
about girls, drinking, generic stuff,
because it's all been done so many
times. There's no set plan for writ-
ing a song. We just write whatever
comes out.

Do you have any favorite songs
you've written throughout your
career?
That's like asking a parent who
his favorite kids are.

Bartley takes charge, sparks Santa Fe comeback


Saints undefeated in conference


By KELSIE HOECHERL
Alligator Writer

Santa Fe College freshman guard Lanita
Bartley was unstoppable Wednesday night
against Daytona State College.
The Falcons were on fire during the first
half, scoring just 10 seconds into the game,
but Bartley wouldn't have it.
The Saints (16-4, 5-0 Mid-Florida
Conference), behind Bartley's 11 points,
eight rebounds and seven assists, came
from behind and beat the Falcons 64-56.
Bartley kept it straight to the point after


the game, not mentioning her individual
performance.
"We worked hard, and now we're 5-0 in
our conference," Bartley said.
With 2:30 left on the clock in the first half
and the Saints down 29-27, Bartley scored
off a stolen pass, tying the game for the first
time since the opening tipoff. The Saints
built off Bartley's momentum and put 5
points on the board in the last two minutes
of the half.
"The kids played hard, but they need to
execute better on defense and play harder,"
SFC coach Chanda Stebbins said. "We had


some players step up and play through in-
juries."
Down, but definitely not out, the Falcons
pushed hard to regain the lead over the
Saints in the second half.
"The kids played hard, but they
need to execute better on defense
and play harder."
Chanda Stebbins
Santa Fe College women's basketball coach

Falcons freshman guard JaQuavia Couch
sank a three, making it a one-point game.
Bartley's performance, however, was un-
matched, as she was all over the court steal-


ing balls and making shots. At one point,
she widened the Saints' lead to 6 points by
hitting a shot while falling down.
With seven minutes left in the game,
Couch retaliated and tied the score at 56.
Foul shooting stepped to the forefront in
the final minutes of the game, but foul after
foul, neither team could perform at the free-
throw line with the clock winding down.
With 3:30 remaining, SFC guard
Quanisha Dixon hurled the ball from half
court to center Letiecia Davenport, who
laid the ball up to put the Saints ahead for
good. SFC made two more shots in the last
30 seconds, solidifying their win.
Davenport led the Saints in scoring with
16 points.


Holmes' 23 points, seven rebounds lead Saints men to win


By JESSICA ETTER
Alligator Writer

Redemption.
The last time Santa Fe College
played at home against a Mid-
Florida Conference opponent,
the team lost. For Wednesday's
game, the Saints were hoping for
a better ending.
The Saints (18-5, 4-1 MFC)
soared over the Falcons of
Daytona State College 68-44 on
Wednesday.
SFC sophomore guard Aaron


Holmes scored 15 points and had
four rebounds in the first half, al-
lowing the Saints to lead 32-22 at
halftime.
"Aaron did a great job. He is
a talented player and can make
plays," SFC coach Chris Mowry
said. "He had a good night for
us."
Holmes, the only player to
score in double digits, ended the
game with 23 points, seven re-
bounds, two assists and a perfect
percentage from the free-throw
line, making both of his shots.


The Saints lost their last home
game against Central Florida
Community College on Jan. 21,
their only MFC loss in two years.
The Saints team that played
Wednesday night was far differ-
ent from the one that played on
the same court a week earlier.
"Tonight, defensively, we did
a really great job. We rebounded
the ball well," Mowry said. "We
executed our stuff, and our guys
were unselfish. We did a good job
pulling away down the stretch."
There were multiple scoring


droughts for the Falcons. It took
them just less than 15 minutes in
the first half to score 10 points.
For the last 6:48 of the game, the
Saints went on an 11-4 run.
The Falcons shot less than 30
percent from behind the 3-point
line and from the field and only
managed 53.8 percent shooting
from the free-throw line.
SFC sophomores Charlie
Lytle and Roderick Emanuel
scored 9 points each and shot 4
for 9 from the field, while bench
players Marvin Davis and Jake


Blakenship provided a combined
14 points.
The Saints will travel
east Saturday to face Florida
Community College at
Jacksonville at 6 p.m. to begin the
second half of conference play.
"Right now, we are tied for first
(in the MFC with Central Florida
Community College), and now,
we have to play everyone again,"
Mowry said.
"We have to be ready
for Jacksonville's energy on
Saturday."

Werner finds shooting stroke after recent struggles, finger injury


CALATHES, from page 20

The Gators opened the second with an 8-2 run and
never looked back.
Unlike Parsons, junior Dan Werner was well aware of
his teammate's accomplishment.
"I saw when he had like seven assists, and I was like,
'Wow, Nick's about to get a triple-double,"' Werner said.
Call it superstitious, but the Gators were careful not to
mention the numbers to Calathes before he had secured

his final three assists.
"You don't want to talk about that kind of stuff,"
Werner said.
After struggling in recent weeks to shoot the ball fol-


lowing an avulsion fracture on his right middle finger -
when a part of the bone tears away from the main mass of
the bone Werner scored 11 points and knocked down
three 3-point baskets.
"I just concentrated a bit more tonight," Werner said.
"I took my time.
"It had nothing to do with my finger."
UF had four players finish in double figures, including
center Alex Tyus, who ended the night with 18 points.
Georgia swingman Terrance Woodbury was held to
only 7 points.

spectively).
"Obviously you're doing
something right if that many peo-
ple are coming in," junior Steffi
Sorensen said.
Sorensen has noticed fans be-
ginning to trickle in an hour be-
fore tip-off, and said her friend
has had trouble finding a parking
space and had to wait in long lines


to enter the O'Connell Center.
"Look at our (home) record,"
Sorensen said. "We're undefeat-
ed."
UF coach Amanda Butler attri-
butes her team's success at home
so far this season to a few differ-
ent things, including a change in
attitude.
"Whenever you have any kind
of streak, it speaks to your con-
sistency as a team," Butler said.
"You're talking about the amount


of pride that a
team has in their
home court."
Butler has
obviously found
the right formu-
la for success.
Brooks Her teams
are 51-9 at
home, while UF is 25-5 during its
coach's first year and a half at the
helm.
The importance of taking care


of business on their home court
seems obvious, but Butler takes
understanding the magnitude of
winning SEC home games to the
next level.
"The teams that have won our
league, the teams that will win
our league don't lose ballgames
at home. It's that important,"
Butler said. "So if you want to
be in that conversation, then you
cannot lose ballgames at home."
Brooks, a senior, said she has


never played in front of crowds
this big unless it was on the
road at a place like Tennessee's
home court of Thompson-Boling
Arena.
Now, she's loving every mo-
ment of it on her home court in
Gainesville.
"It's showing that our hard
work is starting to pay off, that
more people are starting to come
and enjoy watching us play bas-
ketball," Brooks said.


BRIAN, from page 20
Calathes said. "When he's going, our
team's going."
As Calathes stood with his hands
crossed behind his back for the postgame
interview and the Rowdy Reptiles waved
their orange-and-blue shakers, Tyus was
already in the locker room getting ready to
leave the arena.
For a guy who used to play AAU ball
with NBA players O.J. Mayo and Bill


Walker, Tyus is fine with letting the oth-
ers deal with the hoards of reporters and
cameras.
Calathes exits the locker room, report-
ers' voice recorders come on and notepads
come out, while Tyus stands a few feet
away having a nice chat with the one or
two reporters who still deem him impor-
tant.
"I've always played with a lot of good
talent," Tyus said. "So I just try and do my
job."
That's a pretty simple way to put it.


I'll brag a bit more for him, then.
He had 18 points and five rebounds in
22 minutes. He did get out-muscled on
several occasions, but he also outran, out-
jumped and outplayed his competition,
too.
Tyus is not an elite player, and it's
doubtful he ever will be. He has, however,
found perhaps the most important role
on a team probably bound for the NCAA
Tournament.
"Alex is a totally different player than
last year," Parsons said. "He's so much


more involved in the game. He's more ac-
tive. He rebounds. He finishes a lot better.
He's shooting the ball at a crazy-high per-
centage."
OK, so maybe he has multiple roles.
The most important impact Tyus has is
that he's the lone post presence on a team
that's horribly undersized and still lacking
in the toughness department.
Keep on shooting the threes, fellas. Tyus
will do the important work. At least you
better hope he does. If he doesn't, have an-
other fun trip to New York for the NIT.

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL

Calathes' triple-double keys Gators rout


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

Nick Calathes drove
down the lane, put up a pass
so high that only Alex Tyus
could get to it and brought
down the house.
The sophomore's alley-
oop pass with just over eight
minutes left in the game not
only provided UF (18-3, 5-1
Southeastern Conference)
with a highlight-reel mo-
ment in its 83-57 win against
Georgia (9-11, 0-5 SEC) on
Wednesday night in the
O'Connell Center, it also put
an exclamation mark on a ca-
reer night for Calathes.
The point guard scored 20
points, grabbed 13 rebounds
and dished out 10 assists on
his way to the second triple-
double of his career.
"I just try and fill the stat
sheet up," said Calathes,
who stopped to sign score-
cards for fans following the
game.
Calathes now owns two
of the three triple-doubles in
school history.
His first came during last
season's NIT win against
Creighton.
The other belongs to Corey
Brewer, who accomplished
the feat against Jacksonville
on Dec. 18, 2005.


The crowd began count-
ing down assists when it was
apparent Calathes was clos-
ing in on the mark.
Fans let out a euphor-
ic cheer when he found
Chandler Parsons (12 points)
for his 10th of the game with
4:40 to play.
UF coach Billy Donovan
called a timeout on the
Gators' next possession, and
Calathes walked off the court
to a standing ovation.
"I'm glad I wasn't aware
he had nine assists, or I might
have botched that layup,"
Parsons said.
The forward said he didn't
realize Calathes was close to
a triple-double until he saw
the scoreboard after his bas-
ket.
"The kid can't jump over
a newspaper, but he had 13
rebounds tonight," Parsons
said.
It was the Gators' 11th
straight win against the
Bulldogs, who have lost their
last seven games and are still
without a win in conference
play.
UF had the game in hand
well before Calathes neared
his historic mark.
The Gators went on a 20-9
run to close out the first half
and took a 42-30 lead into
halftime.

Tyus must shoulder burden for team to make Tourney


Alex Tyus' shoulders better be even
broader than they appear.
They have to carry UF all the
way into the NCAA Tournament.
On a night when Nick Calathes contin-
ued to show he has become one of the na-
tion's elite players, Tyus proved he is one
of the most valuable. When the Gators
threw up every 3-point shot available,
Tyus would be the lone orange-and-white
jersey going up for the rebound. As fans
fawn over Chandler Parsons' good looks,
Tyus takes a well-timed midrange jump
shot.
Calathes is UF's most talented and

Let's be honest, however.
Tyus has replaced a player in Marreese
Speights who was bigger, taller and way
more of a center than Tyus will ever be.
Tyus still gets manhandled, but he does
much better than any of UF's other post
players do on the inside.
That's what makes him so valuable.
Calathes could have another triple-dou-
ble any night, and the Gators could still
lose.
But if Tyus makes no impact, the
Gators will lose.
"He's a huge piece to the puzzle,"

UF still


without


home loss

By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

Home-court advantage can
never be underestimated in col-
lege basketball.
For UF, the orange-and-blue
court has certainly paid dividends
this season.
The No. 12 Gators (18-2, 4-1
Southeastern Conference) are
a perfect 11-0 in the O'Connell
Center so far and have won 12
straight games athome dating back
to last sea-
son.
They
will have a
4w chance to
extend their
Women's unbeaten
streak to-
Basketball istrk at
7 against
Kentucky
(12-8, 2-3 SEC) while looking
to keep pace with Auburn and
Vanderbilt at the top of the SEC
standings.
Playing at home has brought
the Gators a new energy that has
come full circle.
The team started winning
games and drawing larger crowds,
and the crowds have spurred UF
to more wins as a result.
"I think that we play hard at
home," guard Sha Brooks said.
"We're starting to bring in a lot
more fans, and we get a lot of our
energy from the fans and from
each other."
A lot more fans, indeed.
UF has already notched the
third- and eighth-largest crowds
in school history in just two of
its first three SEC home games
(against Mississippi State on Jan.
8 and Mississippi on Sunday, re-
