UF fireworks show snuffed

The new UF bandshell will be
ready for the Fourth of July, but there
won't be any fireworks to welcome it.
For the first time since 1990, the an-


nual Fanfare and Fireworks display
has been scrapped.

Tebow turtle auction


to benefit children

A statue of a turtle modeled after UF quarterback Tim Tebow sits at a street corner two blocks from
Jacksonville Municipal Stadium, the stadium where the annual UF-Georgia football game is played.


* 24 THEMED TURTLES DOT
JACKSONVILLE CITYSCAPE.

By JENNA EZELL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Part football legend, part sea tur-
tle and a little bit of alligator, Tebow
Turtle marks territory claimed by
the Gators in last year's UF-Georgia
game.
The roughly 5-foot-tall, fiberglass
statue stands outside the Veterans
Memorial Arena, about two blocks
from Jacksonville Municipal Stadi-
um, where the Gators and Bulldogs
fight out their heated rivalry every
fall.
It features Tim Tebow's signature
"Phil 4:13" under its eyes, which he
wore when the Gators rolled the
Bulldogs 49-10 in 2008, and an alli-
gator tail to represent UF's mascot.
"We really just wanted to cele-
brate Tim," said Bonnie Upright, the
coordinator for Turtle Trails, the or-
ganization which placed the statue.
"This town loves him."
However, Tebow Turtle won't
be around to greet Gator fans this
October.


"He will be gone before the Flori-
da-Georgia game, but if not, I would
probably move him anyway," Up-
right said, fearing that the statue
may be vandalized.
The statue is one of 24 turtles
placed around Jacksonville as part
of Turtle Trails, a fundraiser for
Jacksonville organization Child
Guidance Center that provides men-
tal health services to children and
families.
In March 2008, individuals and
companies could sponsor a turtle for
$5,000. The cost paid for production
and artist fees, she said.
This October, Turtle Trails will
auction off the turtle statues and all
proceeds will go to the Child Guid-
ance Center.
Several turtles did not receive
sponsorships, Tebow Turtle among
them.
But Upright decided to have one
of the extra turtles designed like
Tebow because she knew it would
do well at auction, she said.
"We knew that a Tim Tebow
turtle would generate a lot of atten-
tion," she said.
Upright contacted the Tebow

Police warn students to report robberies after recent thefts


Three robberies involving students
that occurred over the last week are be-
ing investigated by the Gainesville Po-
lice Department.
According to police, three happened
in the downtown area and one occurred
in Midtown. All four students were ap-
proached by unidentified men who stole
the three female victims' purses and the
male victim's wallet and cell phone.
Lt. Mike Schibuola said in all four


cases, the victims waited until they got
home to call the police.
"When someone tries to take your
purse from you, that is a robbery,"
Schibuola said. "We take robberies very
seriously."
Schoboula recommends that victims
of robberies call 911 immediately after
the incident if they still have their cell
phones.

UF ATHLETICS
UF may add safe zones near
UF-Georgia football stadium
UF and Jacksonville may add
more safe zones outside Jackson-
ville Municipal Stadium this year
during the UF-Georgia game.
Officials from the two parties,
including UF President Bernie Ma-
chen and Jacksonville Mayor John
Peyton, met Wednesday to talk
about ways to make the scene out-
side the stadium safer.
Two UF students died while at-
tending the game in recent years,
one in 2004 and one in 2005.
The zones have been in place
for the past three years. They offer
things like first aid, water, snacks,
coffee, phone service, universal cell
phone chargers and directions for
lost fans.
Patricia Telles-Irvin, UF's vice
president of Student Affairs, said
students have been appreciative
of the safe havens, with more than
300 people using them last year.
But with UF and Jacksonville

cost is on officials' minds.
"We're always concerned
about budgets," Telles-Irvin
said.
She said she didn't know if
UF would contribute more mon-
ey for the zones this year.
In a 2008 interview, Myra
Morgan, UF's director of external
relations for Student Affairs, said
the zones cost UF at least $8,000,
including hotel expenses for the
UF officials who volunteered
their time, in 2007.
But safety zones can only help
so much.
Students should take precau-
tions as well, Telles-Irvin said.
In both of the recent deaths,
she said the students were intoxi-

UF seeks to eliminate poverty with $1M grant


By MEGAN TAYLOR
Alligator Contributing Writer


More than 1 billion people in the world
live below the poverty level, but, in fall 2010,
UF will be one of the world's first universi-
ties trying to change that.
The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur
Foundation awarded UF nearly $1 million
to create a new master's program that will
train students to assist impoverished popu-
lations.
The foundation has donated $7.6 mil-


lion to 10 universities worldwide to develop
these master's programs over the next three
years.
UF received the donation after compet-
ing against 70 other applicant universities
worldwide.
In North America, only UF and Emory
University in Atlanta, were awarded grants
from the foundation.
The curriculum, emphasizing practical
experience in the field, will consist of cours-
es in management and in the natural, health
and social sciences,.
The program, jointly administered by the


centers for Latin American and African stud-
ies, will have relatively small class sizes.
"We anticipate admit-
ting some 20 students per
class; since it will be a two-
year program, this means
some 40 would be enrolled
at a given time once the
program is up and run-
vil ning," said Leonardo Vil-
Viian lal6n, director of the Cen-
ter for African Studies at UF.
In addition to the foundation's large do-
nation, UF has committed to spend approxi-


mately $800,000 over the next four years on
the program, he said.
Although the program's first students
won't enroll until Fall 2010, the centers for
African and Latin American studies are al-
locating time to prepare for the program.
UF plans to partner with various Latin
American universities and the University of
Botswana.
"Poverty is such a huge global problem.
I'm surprised a program like this hasn't been
created before," said Aaron Clossey, a UF
senior. "It's a great step in ensuring global
improvement for the future."


Courses teach home bartending,


* LEISURE COURSE
REGISTRATION ENDS JULY 6.

By BRITTNEY BURGETT
Alligator Contributing Writer

Budget cuts won't prevent stu-
dents from mixing cocktails or
throwing pottery this summer.
Home bartending and begin-
ning throwing, along with par-
rot care and training and salsa
dancing are a few of the 38 Reitz
Union Leisure Courses offered
during Summer B.
Beth Waltrip, director for cam-
pus programs, said the courses
are funded independently, "so we
don't have to worry about budget


cuts affecting which classes we
can offer."
All of the courses, offered year-
round, have registration fees av-
eraging between $25 and $50 and
a possible lab fee, Waltrip said.
Anyone in the community can
register, but UF students will re-
ceive a discount. UF class prices
cost less than similar classes of-
fered outside of the university,
Waltrip said.
The home bartending course,
which requires students to be at
least 21 years old, has a $50 reg-
istration fee and a $40 lab fee,
which covers the cost of alcohol
and mixers.
John "Wanton" Gillooly wants


his students to learn not only how
to make different drinks but also
how to drink responsibly.

"I also think I would take
quilting. That could be
useful, right?"
Greg Fink
UF sophomore

"I want them to learn about
quality versus quantity," he said.
Like all Summer B leisure
classes, the course lasts four
weeks. Students will learn about
wines, beers, proper mixers and
how to watch out for date-rape
drugs.


quilting
Gillooly said his students will
know more about alcohol than
90 percent of the bartenders in
town.
Students can also suggest
classes they'd like to see offered
by going on the leisure course
Web site and filling out a leisure
course proposal.
Greg Fink, a second-year jour-
nalism major, said he would like
a skateboarding class offered,
because it's something he has al-
ways wanted to learn.
"I also think I would take
quilting," he said jokingly. "That
could be useful, right?"
The last day to register for lei-
sure courses is July 6.


More Than 30 Leisure Courses
Are Offered Summer B,
Including...

Intro to Chess ($35)
Parrot Care & Training ($20)
Cake Decorating ($45)
Beginning Meditation ($30)
Salsa Dancing ($15)
Beginning Guitar ($40)
Screen Printing ($75)
Handmade Quilting ($35)

Prices listed are offered exclusively to
students and do not include lab fees.

Body found in abandoned car inspires push for law


* POLICE WOULD HAVE TO
SEARCH ABANDONED CARS.

By ROBERTA 0. ROBERTS
Alligator Writer

Monica Kraft and her fiance, John
Waldo, had been together for seven
years. They planned to get married.
But those plans were changed
after Waldo, 42, was found dead in
the backseat of his silver BMW at


1933 NW 2nd Ave. on Feb. 23. The
car was ticketed seven times before
he was found. He had been missing
since Feb. 11.
Waldo's body was discovered by
UF student Chris Cianfaglione, who
said he had to press his face against
the window of the car to see inside
because of its illegal tint.
"All they had to do was punch in
that tag number, and it would have
showed where he was," Kraft said.
Kraft wants to create the Waldo


"If they had ran his tag
after the first ticket, he
would still be alive."
Monica Kraft
Victim's wife

Law, which, if passed, would re-
quire Florida law enforcement agen-
cies to run the vehicle identification
and tag number of an abandoned
vehicle that is being ticketed.


"He spent 12 days in his car,"
Kraft said. "We believe he was in a
coma for the first couple of days. But
if they had ran his tag after the first
ticket, he would still be alive."
Kraft said she recently met with
city officials and Gainesville Police
Department Capt. Ed Book to dis-
cuss preventing situations like this.
Kraft also thinks making park-
ing officials or police officers look
in what seems to be an abandoned
car.


"It takes just one second out of a
person's day who is going around
giving tickets to look into the win-
dow and see if something is in
there," she said. "A dog. A cat. A
baby. A person."
The city government has dis-
cussed requiring officers to inspect
vehicles after their third ticket, but
Kraft believes this is insufficient.
The city Public Works Supervi-
sor, Trish Everitt, said she was un-
able to comment.


Move-in mishap


results in burned


apartment unit

A Gainesville apartment fire destroyed one town-
house, leaving it uninhabitable, and damaged two
adjacent townhouses Tuesday.
Angela Frick, the resident of unit 61 at Woodland
Villas, 5950 SW 20th Ave., was moving in when card-
board boxes in the kitchen caught fire, said Carol
Davis, Alachua County Fire Rescue
Local spokeswoman.
News Someone had turned on the stove
burners while the electricity was off.
When the unit's electricity was turned on, the burner
ignited the boxes. At about 1:20 p.m., ACFR received
a call alerting them about the fire.
When the firefighters got to the complex, apart-
ment 61 was engulfed in flames.
They were able to put the fire out within 15 to 20
minutes of arriving at the complex.
Unit 61 is no longer habitable.
But people can continue to live in the two adjacent
apartments, which only suffered smoke damage, Da-
vis said.
There was $90,000 in damage to the building and
$5,000 in property damage.

Mixed-reality dummy provides medical exam practice


By SHAY BRODERICK
Alligator Writer

More than 100 people have felt
up Amanda Jones.
But Amanda is sacrificing her
dignity for the good of medicine.
A cross between an avatar and
a mannequin, Amanda prepares


medical students for tough exams
in the field.
Benjamin Lok, assistant profes-
sor of computer and information
sciences and engineering at UF,
said he has been working on the
idea of a mixed-reality patient for
about two years.
"Intimate exams can be uncom-


fortable for medical students to
do at first," Lok said. "I figured if
we could find new technology for
them to use as practice, it would
save time and money."
Jones' physical form, a manne-
quin with a prosthetic breast that
students can perform physical ex-
ams on, is immobile. Her virtual


Courtesy of UF
On June 18, UF graduate student Aaron Kotranza demonstrates a breast exam on a "mixed-reality hu-
man" composed of a mannequin with a prosthetic breast and a life-size computer avatar on screen. The
system, designed by UF engineers, trains medical students how to correctly perform breast exams.


form is a life-sized computer ava-
tar that communicates via speech
and gestures on a large flat-screen
television mounted above her
"body."
Lok said medical educators
write the words Jones uses to con-
verse back and forth with medical
students. Each script focuses on a
realistic situation that the doctors
want the students to learn how to
handle properly.
"It's not just about asking
the right questions it's
about how you make the
patient feel."
Aaron Kotranza
Research assistant

"A doctor's response to certain
situations is vital to patients," Lok
said. "How can you give students
a chance to gain experience with-
out giving them plenty of oppor-
tunities to practice?"
Lok said that other medical col-
leges have expressed interest in
learning more about the project,
but that the idea for the virtual
human first began at UF.
He has been working with Dr.
D. Scott Lind from the University
of Georgia and Dr. Carla Pugh, a
breast cancer specialist at North-
western University, to help make
the idea of mixed-reality humans
a possibility in the medical field.
Lok said that even though
they are still in the research stage,
the ultimate goal is to get these
mixed-reality patients out to other
medical schools.


Aaron Kotranza, a research as-
sistant in the computer and infor-
mation sciences and engineering
program, built the simulator that
gives Jones her voice.
"Some of the medical students
feel weird talking to her, but oth-
ers will try to comfort the patient
by touching her," Kotranza said.
He said one of the main goals
of the mixed-reality humans is to
help improve the students' non-
verbal behaviors and interper-
sonal skills.
"It's not just about asking the
right questions it's about how
you make the patient feel," he
said. "We want to prepare today's
medical students to have excellent
communication skills, as well as
medical expertise."
While Amanda has not yet
been tested at UF, between 100
and 120 medical students from the
Medical College of Georgia have
tested a duplicate of the technol-
ogy, Kotranza said, and the re-
sponse has been overwhelmingly
positive.
UF medical sophomore Elise
Springer said she is eager to use
the technology.
"It's lifelike, taking the idea of
practicing on a dummy and ex-
panding on it," she said, "as well
as the opportunity to fine-tune
your physical exam."
"Students react to her in differ-
ent ways, but they always learn
something," Kotranza said.
"Before you fly an airplane,
simulation plays a very strong
role in preparation. It's the same
with medicine. It's a safe place to
fail."

Darts & Laurels

For duping the Egyptian government into paying a
pretty penny for some pretend poultry, the Editorial Board
flings its first DART of Summer B at Alexander Legault.
The 59-year-old man admitted Wednesday to scamming
the nation out of more than $7 million for an order of 5,000
metric tons of frozen chicken. That's more than 11 million
pounds of chicken-sides. How Costco-esque.
News out of Fort Myers, Fla., tells the story of a young
girl believed to have come in contact with a rabid bat ly-
ing dead on a beach. For kissing and playing with the de-
ceased animal, the Editorial Board launches a LAUREL at
Bat Girl. The Board does not condone playing with dead
animals, especially ones testing positive for rabies, howev-
er, we are eagerly waiting to read the love story destined
for publication in the Weekly World News. It's about time
Bat Boy scored himself a girlfriend. Hopefully he doesn't
mind a little mouth foam.
For undressing on an airplane, causing a U.S. Airways
plane flying from Charlotte, N.C., to Los Angeles to make
an unexpected landing in Albuquerque, N.M., the Editorial
Board issues a lame-attempt-at-joining-the-mile-high-club
DART to Keith Wright, 50. After Wright was arrested and
the plane prepared to depart from Albuquerque, flight at-
tendants reminded the 138 inconvenienced passengers to
keep their seat belts fastened... and their clothes on.
In Gainesville, the Department of Darts & Laurels
awards a would-you-like-your-eggs-for-here-or-to-go?
LAUREL to Alexis Dominguez, who broke into the Phi
Kappa Tau fraternity house Thursday and made eggs and
cheese. Dominguez, 46, entered the house by removing the
air conditioner and crawling through the window. He said
he committed the crime because he was hungry. He was
arrested after he left the eggs on the burner too long and
set off the fire alarm.
Doesn't sound over-easy to us.
As the King of Pop's death pushed even news from Iran
out of the spotlight, another king passed away. King of
infomercials Billy Mays passed away on Sunday morning.
After his death, his son used Twitter to share memories
and thoughts with his father's fans. And so in the deal of
the century, the Department of Darts & Laurels presents
two LAURELS for the price of one to Billy Mays for prov-
ing time after time his products were missing from our
apartments and to Billy Mays III for working through his
grief with his father's fans to remember the pitch king.
Tim Allen said in "Galaxy Quest" to "never give up,
never surrender." As hard as it is to disagree with the
Tool Man, sometimes you just have to throw in the towel.
FSU is again appealing its forced vacation of wins by the
NCAA for its academic cheating scandal, despite a more
than 20-page shellacking in law-speak after its first appeal
(Yes, we read through every page). For wasting its time
with a second appeal and threatening the reputation of a
university and a coach, who will be remembered fondly
whether the wins stay or go, the Department of Darts &
Laurels sends a DART to the school out west.
That's all for now. Have a Happy Independence Day!

Dead celebrities don't cease to charm


There are those rare moments that, in one fell swoop,
remind us all of the ephemerality and fragility of
life and, generally speaking, those moments come
after a loss. We have all just experienced one of those mo-
ments only this time it dragged on for days. In the
span of one week, we lost Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett,
Michael Jackson and Billy Mays. All of them American
icons and, now, all of them gone.
McMahon was 86 years old, and so his departure
didn't come as a shock. Fawcett had long been battling
cancer. These deaths, while saddening, were accepted
largely with equanimity. But on the same day that Fawc-
ett departed, so too did the 'King of Pop,' Jackson, at the
age of 50.
In my depression, I wondered sardonically, "Who's
next?"
The answer came quickly enough. Mays, the colorful
and exuberant TV salesman of OxiClean, was unexpect-
edly found dead in his bed a mere three days later.
It is official, what we experienced was an apocalypse
of the gods.
McMahon had brought laughter to audiences for
decades, both intentionally as Johnny Carson's second-
banana and unintentionally while toting his oversized
Publisher's Clearing House checks. Fawcett had thrilled
men and earned the anger of women during her time
on "Charlie's Angels" and with her famous pin-up pho-
tos. Jackson is such a legend that hardly a word need be
written whatever legal troubles and eccentricities he
may have had, the man was the single most successful
entertainer of all time and the inventor of the moonwalk
(could you have done that?). Finally, Mays, though prob-
ably the least known of the group, was no less the icon,


undoubtedly one of the most suc-
cessful salesman ever. He elevated
the sales pitch to an art form. These
people were, each in their own way,
American heroes.
For that very reason, this is not
Eric Chianese a time for sadness. The lives these
letters@alligator.org people lived were filled with suc-
cesses and failures, triumphs and
defeats, acclaims and criticisms. But they were, each of
them, larger than life. Right now, somewhere in this great
country, there is an old-timer impersonating McMahon's
famous "hi-oh!"; a young girl twirling her blond locks
like Fawcett; a salesman attempting to mimic the thun-
derous shouts Mays and this I guarantee you a
young man grabbing his crotch and attempting to moon-
walk. It will be a long time before any of these icons are
forgotten. That's just the way it is in America: the gods
may leave us, but the shrines remain.
I am inclined to believe that, if we should feel pity for
anyone, it should be for ourselves and not these luminar-
ies who have left us. They enriched our lives at every turn
and were not afraid to live their own in front of cameras.
It takes a special kind of person to be a true celebrity.
And I don't mean in the cheap, Paris Hilton sense of the
word, but rather in the sense that brings with it grandeur
and class and a spark of unique personality. I call that
trait charm, and each of them had it.
And, also, can someone with the funds available
please put a security detail around Jack Nicholson? I
won't let him be next.

U.S. should offer paid sick days to every American worker


For most Americans, the Fourth of July
is a day for fireworks, concerts, parades
and all manner of patriotic displays. It's
as American as barbecue ribs and apple pie.
While many enjoy a paid day off for the
holiday, not everyone is so lucky. Paid days
off from work are rare. When it's a holiday,
at least the time off is taken for fun, but when
employees need time off for illness or care-
giving, even fewer can afford it.
Nearly 60 million American workers lack
a single paid sick day to care for themselves
when occasional illness strikes. Those who
must go to work sick not only jeopardize their
own well-being but also threaten the public
health. In early June, the World Health Orga-


nization announced that the world is officially
in the grip of a global H1N1 swine flu pan-
demic. In light of the U.S. outbreak, President
Barack Obama and the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention previously stated that
those with flu symptoms should stay home
from school and work, see a doctor and avoid
public contact until they recover.
But American workers without paid sick
days cannot stay home because they risk los-
ing their jobs. This is no inconsequential threat
when you consider the impact on the public
health.
And neither is it inconsequential when you
consider the impact of the lack of paid sick
days on working families generally espe-


Rosemary Lytle cially in these trying
American Forum economic times.
Consider Asha C.,
a young mother in
Milwaukee, Wis. As a temporary hire, Asha
had no paid sick days and could be fired for
missing work even if she or her children
were ill. One day, she was sick and called in to
say that she would be late that day. Asha came
to work one hour late. Two men escorted her to
a large meeting room. They informed her that
she was fired. The employer's actions not only
caused her to lose her job but to miss payment
of her rent and other household bills. It took a
while for Asha to find another job. The second,
like the first, included no paid sick days.


It's stories like Asha's that add urgency to
the need for paid sick time.
This is about working families. This is
also about staying competitive as a nation in
the global economy. Nineteen of the 20 most
competitive countries in the world guarantee
paid sick days. The United States is the odd
one out.
It's great to celebrate our country's history
and values. But for the celebrating to be truly
authentic, every American worker must have
paid sick days.

Energy bill needs strengthening before becoming U.S. law


The House recently passed the
American Clean Energy and
Security Act (ACES), an im-
portant step toward protecting our
environment and building a clean
energy economy.
ACES has generated a lot of
strong opinions, for and against, es-
pecially in the environmental com-
munity. Now I personally helped
start and run the Energy Action
Coalition, the largest youth clean en-
ergy organization in the country but
following the debate over the 1,200-
page proposal has been confusing
even for me.
In an open letter to the president


and members of Congress, 20 of the
top climatologists in the country
wrote, "At its best it will be only a
first step," and, "Call attention to the
large difference between what U.S.
politics now seems capable of enact-
ing and what scientists understand
is necessary to prevent climatic dis-
ruption and protect the human fu-
ture."
I deeply respect individuals on
both sides of the debate, and, in the
end, I believe both sides are right.
(Sounds strange...)
The science, at least, is pretty
clear. The safe upper limit to atmo-
spheric carbon dioxide is 350 parts


Billy Parish per million
American Forum (ppm). Right
now, we're at
389 ppm and
climbing. In its current form, ACES
will not take us below 350. Most
agree with that. On the other hand,
the latest study by the Congressio-
nal Budget Office reports that ACES
will create 1.7 million new jobs and
save consumers more than $22 bil-
lion in 2020 alone. According to the
Center for American Progress, by
2020 the act will have the same effect
on global warming as removing 500
million cars from the road. That's
nothing to sneeze at.


So I'm looking forward, not back.
Ultimately our goals should be to
avert a climate crisis and to build a
vibrant clean energy economy. Does
ACES bring us closer to reaching
those goals? Yes. Will it bring us
there on its own? Certainly not.
We need to strengthen ACES as
much as possible before it becomes
law. The oil and coal industries have
spent heavily to weaken the propos-
al $79 million lobbying Congress
in just the first three months of 2009.
Second, we need to view ACES
as the foundation of good national
and international climate policy, not
the final product. To truly jump-start

a dean energy economy, we need a
range of complementary policies.
President Obama has already made
headway in this area, most notably
with the increase in fuel-economy
standards.
Finally, and perhaps most impor-
tantly, we need to unite as a nation to
face this challenge. If anyone in this
country has proven able to inspire
us to fully embrace our civic and
moral responsibilities, it's President
Obama. I believe that his leadership
will stir the nation into action.

Hearst winner draws inspiration from music, friends


* HE WILL INTERN WITH
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC.

By ALEX CHACHKEVITCH
Alligator Writer

When Tim Hussin's sister
handed him a 35mm camera in
high school, he thought photog-
raphy would just be a hobby.
But eight years later, Hussin was
named the best college photogra-
pher in the nation at the annual
William Randolph Hearst Na-
tional Photojournalism Champi-
onship held in San Francisco.
Hussin was chosen from 12
semi-finalists to compete in a fi-
nal "Shoot-out."
For his assignment, Hus-
sin spent a day at Fisherman's
Wharf.
He said he always gravitated
to water since he was a child, liv-
ing in Palm Harbor by the coast
and frequently fishing with his
dad.
"It was amazing out there [in
the water]. For some people it's
a lifestyle," he said, adding that
he tries to aim for subtlety in his
work and likes capturing photos
that make people think beyond
the superficial.
John Freeman, a UF photo-
journalism professor, said Hussin
was already a talented photogra-
pher when he came to his begin-
ning class.


Freeman said he first saw
Hussin's work at The Indepen-
dent Florida Alligator, where he
started out as a freelance photog-
rapher and later was hired.
"I told him, 'So you're the
guy. I've been seeing your name
in [the Alligator]; you're already
pretty good," Freeman said, re-
calling the first time he met Huss-
in. "And [he answered], 'Really?'
He was embarrassed and humble
about it."
Freeman also flew to San Fran-
cisco to support Hussin, who was
also named College Photographer
of the Year by the University of
Missouri School of Journalism
last November.
The title comes with a Nation-
al Geographic magazine intern-
ship, which Hussin will start in
September.
Hussin is interning with mul-
timedia agency MediaStorm in
New York.
But Hussin didn't realize he
wanted to pursue photogra-
phy professionally until college.
When he was a freshman, his ma-
jor was environmental science.
"I didn't know what I wanted
to do, like most other freshmen,"
he said.
Photojournalism grabbed his
attention after taking Introduc-
tion to Journalism in order to in-
tegrate his interest in science with
something more expressive.
Hussin said he drew inspi-


ration from music, literature,
his photojournalism professors,
Freeman and John Kaplan and
his friends.
Hussin said he tries to ex-
pose himself to different people


who have interesting ideas and a competition last year and didn't
unique outlook on life. win, he said, which was disap-
"I guess I have that drive," he pointing.
said, speaking of his passion for "But I knew I had another year
photography. to try," he said. "And behold-I
Hussin competed in the Hearst won."

Completed bandshell could lower future costs


FIREWORKS, from page 1


of WRUF and WUFT, which usually help organize the event.
The City of Gainesville also shelled out $6,000.
Though UF's new bandshell won't host any Fourth of July
festivities this year, the new structure will likely drive down
costs for future shows Dankner said.
Now that organizers won't have to rent a stage, the price
tag could be about $10,000 lighter than the usual $35,000 to
$45,000 pricetag, Dankner said.
When all is said and done, the new bandshell is expected
to cost about $850,000. About half the money will come from
the Capital Improvement Trust Fund, which is supported by
student fees at state universities, and the other half will come
from UF's Activity & Service Fee, paid by UF students' tu-
ition.
The bandshell began as a $20,000 idea for an outdoor on-
campus concert venue in 1975.
Costs ballooned to more than $150,000 as the project un-
folded, prompting questions about the necessity of the venue,
according to Alligator archives.
Construction began in 1978 and was completed in 1980,
though the first concerts were held there in the fall of 1979.
The original bandshell, designed by two UF grad students,
was torn down in March after it became unusable because
of rotting wood and termite damage in the roof, said project


manager Miles Albertson.
Concerns about the safety of the structure were nothing
new, though.
Soon after it was built, a UF professor told the Alligator
the wood was already beginning to rot and wouldn't last five
years unless it was treated.
In response, Student Government hired a company to treat
the wood, forking over about $10,000.
Though there have been rumors that the old A-frame roof
was actually from a Howard Johnson, Alligator articles from
the time of its construction don't support that notion.
Ed Poppell, UF's vice president for Business Affairs, also
discounts the idea.
"(S)afe to say it was built for this structure even though it
was a unique roof," he wrote in an e-mail.
The new metal roof is flat.
Though the bandshell might be new and improved, some
question whether it was necessary.
Danielle Panagos, who graduated from UF in May, said
she thinks the cost is too high, especially when UF is cutting
its state-funded budget by about $42 million.
"There's probably a million other places that money could
go," she said.
Panagos compared the structure to UF's proposal to install
hand scanners at the gyms.
"It's not really necessary," she said.

family and made sure that they were OK
with the statue before having it made.
Justin Rose, and artist from Macclen-
ny, Fla., was approached to design the
turtle, and he accepted without hesita-
tion, he said.
"I admire Tebow because of the kind
of person that he is and the values that
he has," Rose said.
To prepare for the project, Rose said


"We really just wanted to
celebrate Tim. This town loves
him."

that he read several versions of Tebow's
biography and referenced pictures of
the quarterback's cleats, alligator tails
and turtle faces.


He worked for 14 hours a day for the
first eight days and finished after about
a month. He estimated the project took
about 200 hours.
"When it was gone, it was almost like
trying to drop an addiction," he said.
Ashley Beck, a UF graduate and
event coordinator for the city of Jack-
sonville, said she was impressed by the
authenticity of the details on the turtle.
"I think it's really neat how they in-
corporated everything," she said.


$5K awarded


to SFC student

Danielle Rossi doesn't find Chinese as difficult
as she thought she would, partly because she loves
China.
Rossi, an international economics major at Santa
Fe College, is the first Santa Fe student to receive
the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship,
which was designed for students
wanting to study abroad in a
non-European country and learn
a non-traditional language.
She will use the $5, 000 she
was awarded to study Chinese at
Jilin University in Changchun in
northeastern China from Sept. 1
Rossi through April 15.
"I've always dreamed of
studying internationally," Rossi said. "(The Gilman
scholarship) really gives community college stu-
dents a chance to compete. They're great for that."
Rossi, who plans to go into international law or
the U.S. Foreign Service, said after taking economics
classes and realizing China's importance in world
affairs, learning Chinese seemed like good prepara-
tion for the future.
"We are such strong partners," she said. "Eco-
nomically, we are linked at the hip."
Rossi said although she is excited, she's wor-
ried about communicating and adjusting to life in
China.
"It will really be the Chinese culture," she said.
"It's not Americanized."

Regina Spektor per-
forms with a mild, en-
chanting insanity. She
tugs on melodies the
way an absent minded
tune-hummer contorts a song stuck on re-
peat in her mental iPod,
while musing on God, lost wallets and
computers made of macaroni. Give
this gentle, piano-driven madness a spin.


Maino "If Tomorrow

Maino sums up the spirit
of his debut album with
the line "When I think
that I can't / I envision
Obama / I envisionthose
diamonds / I envision
Ferraris." Inspiring, but ultimately
matrialistic, the disc peaks with "All The

A day in the life of...


With his eyes closed and
guitar pick cradled
loosely between his
index finger and thumb, Tony
Centurione stands on a white-lit
stage, covering a song by the band
he sports on his T-shirt.
"Bertha, don't you come around
here anymore," he sings, strumming
his electric guitar.
A blonde girl spins on the dance
floor, attempting to recruit a partner.
In a dark comer two friends argue
about the meaning of the song; is it
about a mechanical fan or an actual
woman? It was 1971 when "Bertha"
was first performed, and 38 years
later it still absorbs an audience.
Beside Centurione, bandmate
Andrew Strach plucks at his bass
guitar, leaning back and forth, into
the spotlight and out. His long
curly hair copies the movements
of his body. The first time Strach
met Centurione, it was another
Grateful Dead T-shirt that sparked a
conversation between the strangers.


They have come a long way from
the days of playing bluegrass in the
back bedroom of Strach's house.
They have formed a band.
After the show, the guys sit side-
by-side in the living room of that
same house, UFO Hunters turned on
consuming all of their attention. Two
other bandmates lounge around
the coffee table full of McDonald's
cheeseburger wrappers, pleading
for a channel change.
"Dude, please," Zach Liebman
said, taking a sip of his beer. "This
is so fake. I can't even believe you
buy this crap." The drummer rarely
finishes a sentence without tossing
the word dude into it. His friends
describe him as "the chillest person
you'll ever meet."
Brandt Collings nods his head
in agreement. He is more reserved
than the rest of the band, though
onstage he sings most of the band's
original songs. When he does speak,
it's about the Grateful Dead, Phish
or String Cheese Incident. A "Steal

"That's how we all met," he said.
"We all love music, and we've kind

Except for Scott Baltz, the
keyboard player, who is absent

Craigslist.
The band debuted on June 28,
2008, at an outdoor music festival
arranged by friends in Ocala The
event was dubbed Jamnaldo.
Liebman describes Jamnaldo as a
casual event, with a huge stage and
a setting that looks like something
out of the movie Pan's Labyrinth;
creepy, but a huge success.
"We rocked it," Centurione said.
After Jamnaldo, the band began
playing a bi-weekly spot at Tim and
Terry's. A manager there heard their
first performance and gave them the
chance to play at the bar.

Since then, the band has
performed at Common Grounds
and Market Street, opening for
bigger acts like Dubconscious and
Perpetual Groove.
"Which was pretty much the
pinnacle of my life so far," Liebman
said. "No no, dude. I'm just kidding.
But it was really cool."
The guys classify their music as
jam/funk/experimental, but Brandt
said it's really hard to put a label
on the type of music that they play.
Their covers include Talking Heads,
String Cheese Incident, Phish, the
Beatles, The Who, Pink Floyd, Bob
Dylan and of course the Grateful
Dead.
Bassists Andrew Strach said that
covering other bands is important to
Juniper Spring because you can only
play good music when you master
good music first.
"You've got to be an idiot not to
want to build upon what rock'n'roll


by MEAGAN MCGONE

has been building for generations,"
he said.
Now, the band plays a mix of
covers and Juniper Spring originals.
"The fans have responded really
well," Andrew says. "I think they
like us."
The band has big aspirations of
the future.
"Our goal is to take over the
world."
Centurione thinks for a second,
then retracts this statement.
"No, just kidding. Ultimately, it's
to play music for a living," he said.
The members agree that a
nightly spot somewhere would be
an ideal situation for Juniper Spring.
"Playing with each other is reward
enough though," Strach said.
His bandmates tease him for his
sappy comment, but then agree that
it is true.
"I just want to play music that I
love with these guys," Centurione
said. "If I could do that for a living,
then that would be awesome."

Alachua celebrates freedom with $30K fireworks display


On Saturday it is time again to
celebrate all that is the great U.S.
But America's birthday party is
bound to be smaller this year as
small city budgets and low mon-
etary contributions have led many
cities to dwarf or even altogether
cancel Independence Day celebra-
tions.
It's not surprising when fire-
works displays themselves can
cost upward of tens of thousands
of dollars, an expense that penny
pinchers describe as literally burn-
ing money.
But while some cities tame their
celebrations, others emphasize the
importance of the day beyond just
being an excuse to eat hot dogs
and shamelessly wear head-to-toe
red, white and blue.
"The city of Alachua really fo-
cuses on supporting those that
have fought for our freedom and
celebrate those still fighting," said


Adam Boukari, an assistant at Ala-
chua's City Manager's office.
The annual Fourth of July Cel-
ebration is a 9-year-old tradition
that the city was not ready to let
go, despite potential monetary
hardships.
"We have been really for-
tunate. We have had the most
cash and in-kind contribu- si
tions that we've had any other fr
years." Boukari said. "This has
been our most succesful year by
far." A
For the 10th annual Fourth
of July celebration, the 16-mem-
ber committee that puts to-
gether the event is being more
cautious with how money is spent,
but the event will still be as big as
ever.
Attendees can still expect a
30-minute, $ 30,000 fireworks dis-
play, live music, contests and a
free Kidz Comer, complete with


STEPHANIE GRANADA + AVENUE WRITER


a skatepark, a bounce house and a
splash park.
The entire event is free and there
is a 100-acre area for parking.
The committee has been meet-
ing weekly since February to en-
sure the event runs smoothly.


The city of Alachua really focuses on
supporting those that have fought for oui
eedom and celebrate those still fighting
Adam Boukari
,ssistant at Alachua's City Manager's Offici



It takes a lot of work and plan-
ning, but the city is committed to
continue the tradition and is proud
to celebrate America's freedom,
Boukari said.
The city will spend approxi-
mately $ 69,000 on the event, with


$ 40,000 of the amount budgeted
by the city, $18,000 contributed
through cash donations and $ 11,
000 coming from in-kind dona-
tions, in which businesses donate
goods instead of cash.
"In tough times some cities cut
back and I can understand that,
but in our country there are still
people overseas fighting and this
is a way to remember them."
rBoukari said.
The celebration is also a good
opportunity for local businesses
and not-for-profit organizations
e to increase awareness and make
money.
"For some not-for-profits, this
event is the biggest fundraiser of
the year," Boukari said.
The event is expected to draw
out a bigger crowd this year than it
has in previous years because it is
one of the only cities nearby host-
ing a full day of activities and large
fireworks display.


Vehicles provide protected medium to vent anger, rage


ERIK VOSS + AVENUE WRITER
Road rage truly brings out the
worst in us. All it takes is a Buick
to cut me off during rush hour
for me to rethink my position on social se-
curity.
I learned this lesson in ninth grade,
when my older sister Katie would vent her
stress at slow and indecisive drivers on the
way to school in her Chevy Trailblazer.
We were already five minutes late
to her volleyball game one day when a
Dodge Caravan pulled in front of us to exit
a parking lot.
I instinctively sunk low in the passen-
ger seat, like a dog anticipating a rolled
newspaper.
After a two-minute, curse-filled rant


about soccer moms,
the Caravan's white
reverse lights glowed,
and the vehicle rolled
back toward us. To
my sister, this meant
war.
Eric VOSS The driver's door
Columnist swung open and a
middle-aged black
woman approached our car.
"I'm out of gas," the woman calmly ex-
plained, "And I couldn't get it over the hill
to pull into the street. I need to back it up
to roll it into that gas station."
Katie ignored the politeness and stuck
to her guns.
"How am I supposed to reverse?" she
barked, pointing to the long line of cars


behind us.
But the woman, channeling Moses,
waved her hand, and the cars miraculous-
ly receded in unison.
My sister reversed and turned toward
another exit.
"There you go," the woman said en-
couragingly. "That wasn't so hard, was
it?"
Big mistake. She may have had blue
and gold spirit ribbons in her hair, but Ka-
tie was no child.
She jerked the car back into drive and
huffed, "God, what a bitch!"
The woman's smile vacated her face
like a bystander in one of those old West-
ern shoot-outs.
"Excuse me?" she asked coldly.
My sister slammed on the accelerator,


the 'Blazers' tires screeching as we peeled
out across the parking lot. Katie stuck her
head out the window, her spirit ribbons
flickering in the wind like flames.
"Bitch! Bitch! Bitch! Bitch! Bitch!"
Katie turned back, breathing heavily,
her knuckles white on the steering wheel.
"Katie, you're racist," I gasped from
underneath the glove compartment.
"I'm not racist. I'm not racist!"
Katie isn't and wasn't racist. Road
rage simply unleashes a beast inside all of
us.
Occasionally as I drive to work I'll catch
myself repeating terms I discovered as
graffiti on public bathroom stalls.
The truth is, a driver's license doesn't
merely allow us to drive it's a license
to hate.

Boukari said he expects between
15 to 20,000 people to attend.
Highlights of the festival in-
clude a fashion show, a rib-eating
contest, and live music perfor-
mances with Bryce Carlisle head-
lining, he said.
To beat the midsummer heat,
the city set up an air-conditioned
gymnasium filled with arts and
crafts stations, vendors, live music
and food.
"We call the event 'The Largest
Small Town Fireworks Display in
America' because we really have a
great show," Boukari said.
"For 30 minutes there is a con-
stant flow of fireworks, with no
break, with music playing in the
background and a field full of
thousands of people watching."
The celebration will be held Sat-
urday from 12 to 10 p.m., at the Hal
Brady Recreation Complex, 14300
N.W. 146th Terrace, Alachua, Fla.

Wedding dress woes not just for bride

REBEKAH GEIER + AVENUE WRITER


A lot goes into picking the
perfect wedding. One has to
consider location, tempera-
ture, theme, guest list, and so
on. And this isn't just the case
for choosing The Wedding
Dress, this is just for those for-
tunate souls that get invited to
partake in the celebration.
Finding the perfect balance
between being stylish and ap-
propriate can be one of the
most difficult fashion dilem-
mas of them all.
And with summer being the
peak of wedding season, right
now you probably looking for
the perfect attire and feeling
slightly confused. Even for the
most seasoned fashionistas,
choosing the right dress for a
wedding can be challenging.
A little insight can help
eliminate pre-wedding day jit-
ters.
I'm sure you are familiar
with the cardinal rule of wed-
ding attire: Never look hotter
than the bride.
This rule is understand-
able, but at the same time you
want to show guests that she
has some hot friends, right?
Well, the solution is to find a
balance.
I know it's hard to tame
down your trendiness, but it's
only for one night.
Weddings are a time for
classic colors, elegance and
making simple statements. So
you should probably refrain
from wearing that flashy dress
reserved for Rue Bar on Thurs-
day nights. But don't worry, The writer i
you can still turn heads in a Melbourne,
light-hued dress and feminine
accessories a look that says sophistication,
and is a timeless version of the word hot.

Rebekah Geier and friend Megan Goff at a friend's
Fla., on June 5.
You've got a long day and night ahead of
you, so be sure to include comfort among things
to consider while shopping.


Think about the material of
your prospective dress, and make
sure it is sweat-proof and move-
ment-friendly.
Don't forget fit. Make sure
your ensemble leaves some room
to breathe.
The excitement of trying on an
awesome dress may lead some to
forget how many hors d'oeuvres
will be devoured.
Weddings almost always in-
clude dancing. So ditch the heels.
Who said you have to don 5-inch
stilettos to be considered dressed
up? For summer weddings, nice
sandals can make your outfit
more appropriate, so you can bid
those blisters and throbbing feet
farewell.
Wearing something fun will set
your mood for the evening. Flow-
ing dresses and flattering empire
waists are perfect for letting loose
on the dance floor.
Corset dresses are classic and
sexy, but if you wear one, don't
expect to spend most of your night
under the disco ball. All it takes is
for the DJ to ask, "how low can
you go?" before you're back at
that open bar.
Last but not least, keep in mind
whose wedding you are going to.
If a family member is tying
the knot, remember you will be
seeing long-lost relatives you
haven't seen in ages, most of them
likely removed from today's more
fashion-forward trends. Aunt
Gertrude may not exactly com-
prehend the art behind studded,
gladiator heels.
If one of your peers is getting
hitched, this may be the oppor-
wedding in tunity to show a little flare, just
don't overdo it.
Even if you go secretly hoping
to meet some of the groom's single friends, re-
member ladies, it's all about class.


Movie makers jump into third dimension


Superman may be bulletproof,
submarines may be waterproof, but
Hollywood is recession proof.
While America is counting
pennies and the economy is staring
down the barrel of a loaded gun,
movie sales are up 17.5 percent from
last year, to $1.7 billion, according to
Media By Numbers, a company that
records box office receipts.
This may be due in part to the
advent of 3D movies storming
theaters in the past year. Last
summer's remake of "Journey to the
Center of the Earth," Dreamworks',
"Monsters and Aliens" film and
the spooky Tim Burton movie
"Coraline" all made their 3D mark
on the big screen.
The 3D movie market has come
a long way since their blue and red
tinged inception in the 1950s, when
movie executives thought it nothing
more than a showy gimmick.
The latest 3D Disney offering,
"Up," made history as the first
animated feature to open the
prestigious Cannes International


Film Festival.
Jeffrey Katzenberg, chief
executive of DreamWorks, has
described the new generation of 3D
as the third great revolution in the
history of film, after sound in the
1920s and color in the 1930s.
Some of the biggest names in film
are getting on the 3D bandwagon.
Jerry Bruckheimer, producer of
the "Pirates of the Caribbean"
series and the "Beverly Hills Cop"
trilogy, is producing "G-Force" a
pet-shop, spy comedy featuring
the voice of Penelope Cruz in 3D.
James Cameron, director of
"Titanic," has been laboring for
years over the action and animation
sci-fi adventure "Avatar."
Famed sci-fi and adventure movie
directors Steven Spielberg and Peter
Jackson are not to be left out. The
two are directing and producing
a 3D version of the Belgian comic
"Tintin."
While 3D movies become more
common, the technology is still
expensive. Gator Cinemas, located


on Newberry Road in Gainesville,
has four theaters but only one digital
projector.
According to manager Mike
O'Brien, digital projectors cost four
times as much.
He said the resolution is low for
digital projectors in comparison, so
it's unrealistic to expect that theaters
will make a complete switch until
the issue is resolved.
"It's OK for our
theater because it's
S smaller, but a larger
3-D room will not have good
resolution with a digital
projector," he said.
Despite the limited technology,
he views 3D movies as good for
business.
"Movies offer friendly
entertainment for the whole family,
and regardless of people's financial
situations they still want to escape
and be entertained," he said. "We've
seen an increase in sales since they
started making 3D movies."
Movie theater profits from ticket
sales are slim. At Gator Cinemas,
they receive 10 percent of a movie's


gross in the first week, 20 percent in
the second week and so on.
Concession stand profits are the
main income, which explains the
empty wallet feeling after buying
soft drinks, popcorn and candy. At
a typical movie theater a night out
for two can cost anywhere from $20
to $40.
Emily Lake, a Santa Fe College
student and frequent moviegoer,
doesn't think that 3-D movies are
worth the extra $3.50 they add to a
ticket price.
"I saw 'Up' in both formats, and
I wasn't really impressed with the
difference," she said. "You get used
to the 3D images and then forget
about them while you're watching
the movie."
Regardless of audiences reac-
tions to the crop of 3D movie choices
on the market, the format is here to
stay. Will 3D movies revolutionize
the movie industry? Will they in-
crease the movie industry's profits
to unimaginable heights? L i k e
Superman saving civilization from
an onslaught of nuclear missiles,
Hollywood hardly needs the help.

MLB All-Star voting outrageous


By the time you read this, you will
have only around 12 hours to fix a
terrible injustice.
Online fan voting to determine the start-
ing position players for the MLB All-Star
Game on July 14 closes today at 11:59 p.m.
There have already been 163 million
online votes, according to MLB.com, which
is apparently a 15 percent increase to this
point compared to a year ago.
I realize a person can vote 25 times
(which doesn't really make any sense to
me, but that's another issue), but that still
means there were more than 6.5 million
people signed up. Even if people sign up
under multiple e-mails, we can all agree
this amounts to a reasonable sample size.
That leads to my next point. wBaseball
fans are either too stupid or too homer-ish
to pick their own All-Star starters.
This is especially true when you con-


sider people use
All-Star starting
selections as a way
to compare differ-
ent players or argue
points for Hall of
Phil Kegler Fame selections.
Phil on the Hill Let's take a look
pkegler@alligator.org at one perfect exam-
ple of a swing-and-
a-miss pick current-
ly being made by fans and hurting a player
from a Florida team.
You know who is the leading vote-get-
ter in the American League as of Tuesday,
according to MLB.com?
Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter.
Let me get this straight I enjoy watch-
ing Jeter play. The worst off-the-field press
he usually gets is for dating too many mod-

I NBA off-season best of its kind


Know Gainesville is a football town.
I know people will be tailgating on
campus long before Vince Carter
makes his debut with the Orlando Mag-
ic. And I know my favorite pro sports
league has trailed the NFL in popularity
for a while now.
But that doesn't matter to me. With
the 2009 free agency season kicking off
Wednesday, the NBA off-season, the
most exciting of any sport, is upon us.
And I couldn't be any happier.
I'll admit I'm a little biased about this.
Basketball has always been my favorite
sport. I grew up around it, following my
brother's AAU teams and idolizing the
likes of Michael Jordan and Penny Hard-
away when I was younger, and I under-
stand the complexities of the game more
than any other sport.
With that in mind, the NBA off-season
is the only one that can hold my atten-
tion. From the end of the NBA Finals to
the opening tip of the next season, David


Stern's league has
the most consis-
tently interesting
downtime.
People get re-
ally into the re-
Adam Berry cruiting process
Bad News Berry and previewing
aberry@alligator.org the upcoming
NCAA football
season, but col-
lege football's atmosphere is what makes
it so great. With the NFL, the buildup dur-
ing the seemingly endless break between
the Pro Bowl and the opening kickoff is
perhaps too overwhelming and that's
just the coverage of Brett Favre.
But something about the NBA off-
season is easier to follow and get involved
in. Free agency, which started with a
bang when the Detroit Pistons reportedly
signed Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanue-
va, becomes like solving a puzzle. Teams

Top 10 UF Athletes of 2008-09

Cusack's all-around game key to Gators


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
sports@alligator.org

Elyse Cusack came to Gainesville
ready to become the Gators' first
four-year starter at the libero posi-
tion.
When she departs UF after next
season, she will leave a legacy that
will be tough to match by any who
follow in her footsteps.
Oct. 31 made that case even
stronger when she cemented her
place in the UF record books.
She recorded her seventh 20-dig
performance in only the 20th match
of the 2008 campaign.
But it's fair to say she might
remember that one more than the
others.
Because on that night, she would
pass a legend.
On that night, she gained extra
attention and not just for wear-
ing a different color jersey than her
teammates, as her libero position
dictates.
Cusack recorded 22 digs to help
UF sweep Ole Miss while surpass-
ing a milestone.
In just three seasons, she had al-
ready eclipsed the Gators' all-time
digs record and now sits with 1,634
to her credit.
The old mark?
A now-paltry-looking count of
1,444 digs set by former Gator Lyra
Vance more than 20 years ago.


In fact, Cusack was born the
very same fall in which Vance
played her senior season for the
Orange and Blue.
And the then-junior made it to
her record-setting number in only
81 matches.
"She expects any ball that is hit
anywhere toward her should be
dug," coach Mary Wise said when
Cusack broke the record.
Last fall also saw Cusack be-
come the first player in Southeast-
ern Conference
history to earn
Defensive Player
of the Week hon-
ors four times in a
single season.
But there's
Cusack more than just
scraping up the
ball off the floor and keeping points
alive to the libero position.
She also is responsible for the
majority of UF's first touches when
the Gators are receiving a serve.
A bad first pass makes setting
even more difficult and therefore
kills become even rarer.
That's why one might not see
Cusack's offensive impact, if they
judge the rising senior only by the
10 career kills to her name (only by
opponent's error) and the fact that
she has never and spiked a ball for
the Gators.
Her importance to her team was
recognized by the four awards she


earned at the team's annual ban-
quet.
Certainly Cusack was a shoo-
in for the defensive honors, but
she also took home recognition in
passing, serving and strength and
conditioning.
She finished second in the SEC
for aces per set (0.41) and was the
only player in the conference to fin-
ish in the top five in digs and ser-
vice aces.
It's no surprise Cusack won the
Gator Power Award, as her weight-
room work earns mighty praise
from her coaches.
Assistant strength and con-
ditioning coach for UF Olympic
sports Matt Delancey told the Al-
ligator last fall, "Pound for pound,
she's in the top five strongest ath-
letes at the school."
Add in an upbeat personality
that always keeps her teammates
going, and it's easy to see the cru-
cial role Cusack one of only four
upperclassmen on the 2008 volley-
ball team and one of only two ris-
ing seniors played this season.
For her spectacular saves and
an all-around game crucial to the
Gators' success, Elyse Cusack is the
alligatorSports No. 10 UF athlete of
2008-09.

BY THE NUMBERS: Cusack earned
one fifth-place vote, one eighth-
place vote and was left off the other
four ballots.


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
UF libero Elyse Cusack set the Gators' all-time digs record in
only her junior season.


Black stands out among resurgent D


UF safety Ahmad Black led the Gators with seven interceptions last season and
helped turn around a defensive unit that was considered a weak link in 2007.


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
sports@alligator.org

With 10 minutes left in the BCS National
Championship Game and his team down by
3 but slowly marching down the field, Okla-
homa's Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback
Sam Bradford launched a pass down the field
to receiver Juaquin Iglesias.
Iglesias reached for the ball, and even got
his hands on it, but it was Ahmad Black who
came away with the interception at UF's 24-
yard line. The safety's team-high seventh pick
of the year brought any momentum the Soon-
ers might have been gaining to a halt and set
up an 11-play, nearly seven-minute touch-
down drive that put the game out of reach.
And to think, Black was supposedly not a
sure thing before the season started, just an-
other question mark on a defensive unit that
allowed 25.5 points per game in 2007.
Black started all 14 games for the Gators en
route to the team's second national champion-
ship in three years, and the improved second-
ary helped cut opponents' offensive produc-
tion nearly in half. UF gave up just 12.9 points
per game in 2008.
After playing cornerback during his true
freshman season, Black had to fill the spot at
strong safety left vacant by Tony Joiner. Dorian
Munroe, who was projected to start at that po-
sition, missed the entire 2008 season with an
ACL injury.
In the season opener against Hawaii, Black


intercepted two passes and returned one for
his first touchdown at UF. Not bad for the
5-foot-9 then-sophomore's first career start.
Nationally, Black finished the year tied for
most interceptions (seven) and interceptions
returned for touchdowns (two) as well as rank-
ing second for most interception return yards
(191). He also came in fourth on the team in
tackles with 59 and fourth in passes broken up
(five) behind fellow starters Joe Haden, Janoris
enkins and Major Wright.
#9' Those four Haden,
Jenkins, Black and Wright
started every game for
UF and helped turn the
Gators defense from a pos-
sible weak link into one of
the surest things in college
Black football.
In the Capital One Bowl,
the last game of the 2007 season, Michigan tore
up the Gators' secondary for 373 passing yards
and three touchdowns. In the 2008 season, no
team put up more than 300 passing yards on
UF all season. The most was Georgia's 292 on
Nov. 1, the same game Black picked off a pass
by Matthew Stafford and returned it 64 yards.
For turning in an exceptional season and
playing a part in turning UF's defense around,
Ahmad Black is the alligatorSports No. 9 UF
Athlete of 2008-09.

BY THE NUMBERS: Black earned one fourth-
place vote, one fifth-place vote, one 10th-place
vote and was left off the other three ballots.

els off the Maxim Top 100 List. That's a
problem I'd like to have.
But I'd venture to say Jeter, the only
AL player with more than 3 million votes,
shouldn't even be starting when the two
leagues square off at Busch Stadium. In 70
games, the 35-year-old Yankees captain is
hitting .307 with nine home runs, 32 RBI, 17
stolen bases and has a .832 OPS.
Now, let's take a look at the player sec-
ond among voting for AL shortstops: Jason
Bartlett of the Tampa Bay Rays. In 59 games,
Bartlett is hitting .362 with seven homers, 36
RBI, 17 stolen bases and .960 OPS.
Try to imagine if you didn't know which
stats went with what player. Bartlett's bat-


ting average is 55 points higher, and in 11
fewer games he has only two fewer hom-
ers, the same number of steals and four
more RBI. Oh, and an OPS more than 100
points higher. Remember that Jeter plays
his games at a much more hitter-friendly
park in the new Yankee Stadium compared
to Bartlett's Tropicana Field.
There really is no way to back up Jeter
starting at short other than the fact he plays
in big-market New York and the fact that
he has more All-Star selections (nine) than
Bartlett has years of MLB experience (six).
The 16 starters determined by fans will
be revealed at 1 p.m. Sunday on TBS.
But today, you still have a chance to
make things right. Don't wait until it's too
late.
Tick tock.


ADAM, from page 24


need to fill certain holes with their re-
maining cap space, and unsigned players
are looking for their best chance to win
a championship or get a desperate team
to sign them to a ridiculous contract.
(What's up, Grant Hill? He earned $93
million over seven years with Orlando,
where he played only 200 games due to
injury.)
The NBA is especially exciting this
off-season thanks to, ironically, the strug-
gling economy. Teams are taking risks on
players they wouldn't have a few years
ago, all for the sake of saving money or
taking advantage of another team's poor
financial standing. They're making block-
buster trades and looking to improve their
teams with savvy free-agent signings.
Just look at some of the marquee play-
ers who will be wearing new jerseys next


year: Vince Carter (Magic), Richard Jef-
ferson (Spurs) and the Big Sidekick him-
self, Shaquille O'Neal (Cavaliers). Two of
these teams the Magic and the Cavs,
who played each other in the Eastern
Conference Finals this year were will-
ing to give up young talent in an effort to
improve next year. The Spurs, who draft-
ed all of their big three Tim Duncan,
Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker made
a multi-player trade for Jefferson, then re-
turned to their old ways by lucking into
DeJuan Blair, a first-round talent, in the
second round of the draft.
In a time when companies are taking
fewer risks and playing it safe, the NBA
has become as exciting as it has been in
years. And with a far superior draft class
and superstars like LeBron James, Dwy-
ane Wade and Chris Bosh becoming free
agents in the summer of 2010, it's only
going to get better next year.
