UF gets $26M grant


* UF IS ONE OF 60 INSTITUTIONS
IN COUNTRY TO RECEIVE AWARD.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
UF announced Tuesday it will receive
a five-year, $26 million grant from the Na-
tional Institutes of Health to cut the time
it takes for scientific breakthroughs to be-
come incorporated into medical practices.
The money will fund research, the
translation of scientific discoveries into
medical applications and the marketing
of those applications.
UF has received larger grants in the
past, but the prestige is what makes this


grant significant, said Win Phillips, UF's
vice president for research.
"The important thing is the acknowl-
edgement that UF is one of the top health
research centers in the nation," Phillips
said.
"It's clearly one of the most important
events in the history of the University of
Florida."
UF is the only university in Florida to
get the grant. It will be one of 60 institu-
tions to have won when the grants are
given out by 2012.
The grant encompasses 12 of UF's 16
colleges, as well as the Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences and its exten-
sion offices across the state, the Shands

CEO touts



future plans

By LAUREN BAKER

Ibaker@alligator.org

After a marked absence from a May meeting to
address the closure of Shands at AGH, Shands CEO
Timothy Goldfarb addressed concerns about the fu-
ture of community health care at a special Wednesday
meeting.
The meeting, which brought together both city and
county commissions, showcased plans from Gold-
farb for handling patient and employee
Local overflow, as well as the future of the
News downtown hospital's property.
Goldfarb, who oversaw the closing,
said Shands at UF will be equipped to
take on extra patients when it opens a new emergency
department and Shands Cancer Center on Nov. 1.
Goldfarb said none of programs or employees from
Shands' AGH programs or employees would be cut
by the closing, adding that only 52 of the 1150 AGH
employees have not yet been placed.
Still, Goldfarb was unsure what presence AGH's
programs for heart rehabilitation and wound-care
would have at Shands at UF, but there would likely be

STUDENT LIFE

SG opposes liquor ban


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

UF President Bernie Machen's proposed
changes to the festivities surrounding the
UF-Georgia football game in Jacksonville -
including a ban on the sale of liquor shots
- are getting some heat from Student Gov-
ernment, including Student Body President
Jordan Johnson.
Johnson said he thinks Machen's ideals
are sound but thinks the proposed changes
would actually make the experience more
dangerous for students.
In addition to banning shots, Machen
and Vice President for Student Affairs Pa-
tricia Telles-Irvin asked Jacksonville Mayor
John Peyton in a June letter to halve the
number of temporary alcohol vendors, limit
occupancy at The Jacksonville Landing -
a popular strip of shops and restaurants in


downtown Jacksonville and crack down
on alcohol laws, all on the city's dime.
The requests came before a meeting that
discussed UF and Jacksonville's contract,
which ends after the 2010 game.
By attempting to limit the amount of
alcohol at the Landing,
Johnson said, it encour-
ages students to drink in
less safe places.
He said he'd rather
see students drink at the
Landing, which is sur-
rounded by safe zones
Machen instead of in hotel rooms
and tailgate parties.
Booze is also more expensive, and lines
are longer, at the Landing, which provide
disincentives for overconsumption, he said.
He said he doesn't think Machen should
be trying to regulate the drinking habits of

Transparency bill fails in senate
A Sunshine in the Swamp bill
calling for more transparency in Stu-
dent Senate failed 15 to 53.
The bill would have required
training for senators, and there was
no conversation with officers to see
if they were willing to comply, said
Senate President Audrey Goldman.
The meeting mainly focused on
a resolution proposed by President
Bernie Machen concerning liquor


laws in Jacksonville for the UF-Geor-
gia game that would limit the types
of liquor sold, Sen. Alan Yanuck
said. Goldman said senators will
send a resolution to Tigert Hall by
next week. From there, students can
react, she said.
"I mean, we can get the whole
football team if you want to," line-
backer and Sen. Brandon Hicks said.

Performing Arts College
holds wine and cake benefit
A Spanish red blend wine and
a nine-generation chocolate butter
rum cake will set the mood for the
first Summer Wine Festival fund-
raiser.
On Sunday at the Phillips Cen-
ter for the Performing Arts, UF
will host a fundraiser to benefit the
Phillips Center, Baughman Center
and the University Auditorium,
according to UF's Performing Arts
development coordinator Lori Sie-
gel.
The festival will showcase 16
wine and chocolate vendors who
specialize in creations like Italian
chocolate and cakes from chocolate
butter rum to red velvet. About 10
amateur bakers will also donate
cakes to the silent auction, where a
total of 20 cakes will be sold. Sie-
gel said the event was designed to
be a fun and unique way to raise
money.
"Ideally if we could raise $5,000
to $10,000, that would be great, but
we know this is a new thing, and
we won't make as much as we
hope," Siegel said, adding that she
expects 75 to 100 people to attend.
Judy Blachly, co-chairwoman of
the fundraising committee for the
performing arts, said she loves the
excitement of talking to vendors
about what they plan to bring.
"I'm a chocoholic," she said.
Blachly said she feels there isn't
a lot going on in the summer and
wants to keep people engaged in
the performing arts.
"The event also allows local
businesses to showcase a variety of
wine, food and desserts, which can
be great exposure," she said.
Magdalen Reiter, owner of the
mail-order, old-fashioned liquor
cake company Butterfly Limited,
said she will feature her butter rum
chocolate cake, a recipe of which
has been passed down through
generations.

Gala to fundraise for triple
negative breast cancer
Mary Lou Miller wanted to
help her daughter through cer-
vical cancer.
But Michelle Gumz, Miller's
daughter and an employee at
UF's College of Medicine, never
thought she'd have to return the
favor.
Miller died in September after
an eight-month battle with triple
negative breast cancer, labeled
TNBC, a particularly painful and
aggressive form of the illness.
In honor of Miller, the Col-
laboration of Scientists for Criti-
cal Research in Biomedicine will
hold a gala, "Set Sail for Discov-
ery," Saturday to raise awareness
and funding for TNBC.
Collaboration's President Lisa
Stow, who works with Gumz in
the College of Medicine, and col-
leagues Susan Salganik and Sara
Palmer began the research orga-
nization after Miller's death. The
money raised at the gala will go
toward a seed grant for research
on TNBC at UF.
Fifteen percent of breast can-
cer patients are triple negative
patients, and 25 percent of the
women who die from breast can-
cer have TNBC. TNBC is a form
of the breast cancer that lacks the
three common receptors (estro-
gen, progesterone and HER2, or
human epidermal growth factor
receptor 2) found in breast can-
cer tumors, which chemotherapy
targets to get rid of the cancer,
Stow said.
Without these three receptors,
the chemotherapy has no target


and no way to kill the tumor, she
explained. After living with the
knowledge of her cancer for about
a month, Gumz said, her mother
found out her cancer spread to her
brain, like it does in almost 40 per-
cent of TNBC cases. She died six
weeks later.
"I told her not to worry," Gumz
said. "'It'll all be fine,' I kept re-
peating."
Gumz said oncologists told her
it wouldn't have mattered if they
found the cancer earlier; she would
have died anyway. But Gumz was
skeptical.
"The earlier you find it, the lon-
ger life you have," Gumz said.
Stow said there is little known
about effective treatment for the
TNBC tumors. But the Collabora-
tion hopes to change that by rais-
ing enough funds at the gala to do
research at UF.
"[TNBC] probably has some-
thing they can target," Gumz said
referring to chemotherapy treat-
ments. "They just don't know
what it is yet."
The nautical-themed gala will
feature a string quartet, a ballet
performance by Dance Alive, a
silent auction and a keynote ad-
dress by Dr. Edith Perez, a cancer
researcher for TNBC.
"If they had found one lesion,
they could've done something,"
Gumz said. "It's so important to
raise awareness. Maybe we could
have had a few more months.
Maybe she could've held her
grandchildren longer."
The gala will be held at the Can-
cer and Genetic Research Complex
at 7 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $50
for students and $125 for general
admission. For more information,

Editorial


Bill of Health

Best health care reform

strategy is unclear
he wide-sweeping health insurance reform that Presi-
dent Barack Obama has promised is finally on its way
to being delivered, and the Editorial Board is not sure
how to feel about it.
The proposed bill, which has just passed the Senate
Health Committee (the first of six stages in its ascent to the
Senate floor), calls for mandatory health insurance for all
Americans and a government-run insurance program that
will compete with private programs.
Sounds great. Then again, most things on QVC; those
CutCo knives that everyone you went to high school with
tries to sell to your parents as soon as you leave for college
and Billy Mays' Awesome Auger (too soon?) always sound-
ed great until we found out they cost like, 90 payments of
$9.97 (Nickelodeon magazine, please!). Over the course of
the next 10 years, the program would cost about a trillion
dollars to implement. To us, and to everyone really, that cost
is a little abstract. To write a million dots on sheets of paper
would leave you with a room entirely full of paper. To do
that with a trillion dots, you would fill up every room in
Turlington.
Opponents of the bill will surely be quick to cry "social-
ized medicine" and to call, "There will be waiting lines!"
with a Daniel Plainview level of fervor. These are not the
problems that the Editorial Board is concerned about. Medi-
cine in America is already rationed on very clear terms:
People with money get a ration, people without money can't
afford one.
Democrats are calling it an investment; Republicans are
calling it an inappropriate expenditure. The bottom line is
that neither party can predict how this will pan out. The Ed-
itorial Board does not claim to be more knowledgable than
the senators who will either approve or deny the bill, and
our psychic powers lie just below those of Miss Cleo and just
above those of the mighty Alakazam (whose IQ is claimed to
be 10,000, despite the fact that it can't escape a pokeball).
Obama is channeling Maynard Keynes with the assump-
tion that stimulating the economy through an investment in
infrastructure will pay off in the long run, and Republicans
are complaining that we simply don't have the money to
invest. Spending money inside the country as opposed to
spending it in Iraq seems reasonable (but don't sue us, we
aren't economics majors, and I think the median age that the
Editorial Board stopped taking math at is around 15.3). But,
note the word "assumption." This spending approach has
not been tested. This is not FDR Redux. In fact this, could
possibly be closer to "Apocalypse Now: Redux." There is no
World War II waiting in the wings to give us the extra push.
The potential horror, the potential horror.
Apart from the bill's possiblity of backfire, we recognize
the need for health care reform. There are about 46 million
Americans without health insurance. Medical care makes up
about a fifth of our country's GDP. The majority of Ameri-
cans say we need major health care reform this year, accord-
ing to a Gallup poll. Basically, things are crazy. So while
the Editorial Board is not ready to give a thumbs-up or a
thumbs-down to the 1000-page bill (and is certainly inca-
pable of reading it, considering one of us has been reading
"Ulysses" for three years), we laud Obama for at least mak-
ing good on his word. We just hope that we don't have to be
careful what we wished for.

Guest column

Johnson questions Machen's


his fall many UF students will take the hour-and-a-
half trek up to Jacksonville for the yearly tradition
of the UF-Georgia football game. But if President
Machen has his way, students will find a very different
situation awaiting them in Jacksonville.
In a letter to Mayor Peyton of Jacksonville, President
Machen and Vice President of Student Affairs Patricia
Telles-Irvin expressed their concern about the safety of
UF students in locations like the Landing. In the letter,
the two administrators laid out plans they believe will
keep students safe if implemented. Included are changes
like the prohibition of shots at the Landing, a 50 percent
decrease in temporary alcohol distribution points and a
shifting of the total cost of the Sideline Safety Zones to the
City of Jacksonville.
It has already been reported in the press that the con-
tract UF has with the City of Jacksonville is up for renewal
after next year and that the city's compliance with these
demands will determine the likelihood that the game will
continue to be hosted in Jacksonville.
My feeling on this issue is that President Machen has
his heart in the right place and is doing his job by trying
to protect the students, but I believe that there is more to
the solution. I do not feel that limiting the availability of
alcohol at the Landing will truly solve the problems that
have presented themselves in the last few years. We need
to provide education and awareness to the student body
instead of making decisions for them.
President Machen devoted an entire section of his let-
ter to the success of the popular and efficient Sideline
Safety Program. I believe that an increase in safety pre-
cautions like these are necessary to help protect students.
With this in mind and with an understanding of the uni-


meddling


E versity's difficult economic situ-
ation, I think that it makes sense
to ask for more support from the
City of Jacksonville to fund these
life saving programs.
Programs like the Sideline
Jordan Johnson Safety Program in combination
Speaking Out with education campaigns on the
dangers of excessive drinking and
awareness efforts to help students
understand their limits will be more effective than mak-
ing purchasing decisions for students. I hesitate to sup-
port policies that would decentralize drinking into areas
of Jacksonville that do not have the same safety measures
provided in areas like the Landing.
To truly provide a safe UF-Georgia weekend, the uni-
versity must work towards providing a safe alternative to
the Landing. That's why I have been working with Presi-
dent Machen to plan a concert the night before the game
and an official tailgate outside of the stadium on Game
day. By giving students options that don't simply involve
drinking at the Landing, we decrease the risks involved
of everyone being in one place. We also improve the abil-
ity to provide assistance to individuals by ensuring that
safety zones are present at all of these activities.
While the 'World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party'
may be slightly different this year, I think we can make
sure it will be even more entertaining for all of the stu-
dents while still preserving the safety of everyone in-
volved and the longstanding tradition of the UF- Georgia
game.
Jordan Johnson is a business senior and Student Body
President at UF.

Letters to the Editor
Columnist ignored Obama critics
Soon-to-be-former Gov. Sarah Pa-
lin has been kicked around merciless-
ly by those who oppose her political
views. Everything from her family
to her wardrobe has been endlessly
criticized.
When Eric Chianese started to
write a column for last week's paper,
maybe he had to pick from a wither-
ing amount of favorable topics for an
Obama supporter.
Should he write on the national
deficit that recently reached the stag-
gering amount of $1 trillion? Or may-
be try to understand how the federal
government is trying to fix health


care by throwing more money into a
burning pit? Neither of these topics,
I guess, were so flattering to the cur-
rent president.
So Chianese resorted to what most
left-leaning writers are best at: sling-
ing mud at their favorite target, Gov.
Palin.
Why do they attack her? Perhaps
they are scared that a woman is sup-
porting and pushing a conservative
agenda. They can't possibly under-
stand why she would, so instead of
trying to understand her, they simply
attack without any remorse and with
growing ferocity.
Palin's critics were no doubt pray-


ing for a cheating scandal like Gov.
Mark Sanford's. But nothing has real-
ly come up since her announcement.
Instead of just relying on what
Gov. Palin said, everyone, especially
Chianese, is still clinging to the hope
that it is, in fact, a scandal without
leaving room for any other possibil-
ity.
Chianese was right about one
thing, America does need to laugh,
and that is because of the deepen-
ing deficit and reckless spending in
Washington, D.C.

Guest column

Alligator editorial fails to justify Sotomayor support with facts


T uesday's editorial regarding Supreme
Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor was
filled with much of the same "empathy"
we expect Sotomayor to rule with, but little
fact.
It is of note that you didn't provide the
context of the "wise Latina" quote (in which
she stated her opinion that a "wise Latina"
would come to better conclusions than a white
male).
Had a conservative nominee stated that a
"wise white male" would come to better con-
clusions than a Latina, I doubt you would treat
it with the same disregard.
You state that the job of a Supreme Court


justice is to apply the law, not make it. I agree.
Unfortunately, Sotomayorbelieves (andhas
publicly stated) that the federal appeals courts
-her courts are where policy is made. This
statement has been a focal point of the debate.
Its absence in your evaluation seems to indicate
frightening negligence, ignorance or bias; and
perhaps all three. You go on to say you could
not find evidence that Sotomayor could be clas-
sified with an agenda; that she hasn't shown
blatant "sympathy" to minority groups.
Ricci v. DeStefano flies in the face of this.
The case itself is Sotomayor doing her best to
influence policy.
As for the ethics, you call it "reverse rac-


Benjamin ism," but there is no
Camenker such thing. The term
is nothing more than
Speaking Out a dishonest method
of positing that rac-
ism against group X is somehow more accept-
able than racism against group Y, when in re-
ality all racism is wrong in principle.
You state that when Sotomayor struck
down the appeal, she was doing so because
she "firmly believes" in the Civil Rights Act
(making it seem like her opponents don't care
about civil rights).
The truth is that Title VII applies to ALL
races, including, oh my God, Caucasians.


If African-Americans were denied promo-
tions because Caucasians couldn't pass the
same race-neutral test, you'd blow decades
worth of DARTS before letting that die.
Lastly, Pappas v. Giuliani had an estab-
lished precedent that Sotomayor disregarded:
Garcetti v. Ceballos, where it established that
the First Amendment does not apply to speech
pursuant to public employment. Because Pap-
pas' situation (the solicitation reception) was
enabled by his employment, he was acting in
official capacity, and Sotomayor, regardless of
her position's moral high ground, was trying
to make policy, not interpret it.

Gainesville Iranians voice concerns over election


By BRITTANY DAVIS
Alligator Staff Writer
bdavis@alligator.org

She arrived in Tehran the day
after Neda Soltani was shot dead
in the streets, a murder that added
fuel to the most heated days of re-
cent Iranian protests.
But as UF junior Neda Zaman
landed at Imam Khomeini In-
ternational Airport in Tehran on
June 21, she mostly thought about
reuniting with cousins, aunts and
uncles.
As video of Soltani's death hit
YouTube and circled the globe,
tens of thousands protested the
re-election of Iran's controversial
President Mahmoud Ahmadine-
jad by marching and chanting in
Tehran's streets.
For Zaman, the reality of Iran
is wider than media portrayals.
Safety concerns convinced Za-
man's relatives to bypass staying
in Tehran and take her directly
to their home in Shahroud, about
250 miles east of Tehran. Here Za-
man shopped for gold at the local
bazaar, smoked hookah, enjoyed


leisurely siestas and attended
her aunt's wedding, an elaborate
four-day event.
Political discussions peppered
the relaxation.
"You get different stories. A lot
of it is word of mouth. My great
aunt said there were no protests,
but she has regular TV so it's
state-controlled. I talked to my
friends, and they say things are
still going on," Zaman said in a
Monday phone interview from
Iran. She will return to Florida on
Sunday.
While Iran's government
blocked Facebook and certain
blogs, Iranians around the world,
including ones in Gainesville,
have been using those sites to
stage Web protests.
Patricia Woods, a UF professor
of Middle Eastern politics, said the
grassroots movement has been ex-
hilarating for Iranian students in
the United States.
"Much of the Iranian-Ameri-
can population is extremely criti-
cal of the Iranian regime, much
more than Americans," she said.
"I think they're delighted that this


is finally happening."
Farzad Fani-Pakdel, a UF
chemistry doctoral student who
moved from Iran nine years ago,
said he was inundated with chain
e-mails, some mocking and slan-
dering Ahmadinejad, others sup-
porting him.
Iranian students at UF largely
support opposition candidate
Mir-Hossein Mousavi, Pakdel
said. And many are
Special embarrassed by Ah-
Report madinejad's anti-Isra-
el comments.
Some Iranian students car-
pooled to Orlando polling stations
to vote in Iran's June 12 election.
When Ahmadinejad was de-
clared the winner, they protested


on Turlington Plaza, holding signs
demanding that their votes count.
But Pakdel said he's against
such demonstrations in the Unit-
ed States.
"We don't want to bring the
United States into this. It's an in-
ternal issue," he said, referring to
the widespread Iranian contempt
for foreign intervention.
A self-described moderate who
supports neither candidate, Pak-
del talks often with his parents
and siblings in Iran and to other
UF students who are interested in
Iranian politics.
"I had to graduate, and dead-
lines were coming," he said. "This
thing took up a lot of my time."
And while demonstrators in


Tehran have gathered widespread
media attention, voters outside
of Tehran may have swayed the
election toward Ahmadinejad, he
said.
UF graduate Siavash Kouchek,
whose father is an Iranian refu-
gee and who spoke on Iran at the
Civic Media Center, said that his
parents were sad about the elec-
tion results.
However, Kouchek is hopeful
that the support for democracy
shown in and outside of Iran is a
sign of coming change.
"We could be more connect-
ed to the West," he said. "We're
the same. It's been too long with
us separated from the rest of the
world."

SPECIAL REPORT

Journalists prep for foreign work


Traffic delays may


last until Fall 2011

Drivers can expect traffic delays across central Gainesville
to end no earlier than September 2011, according to a state
official.
The resurfacing of the roadway and adjacent sidewalks
at Northwest and Southwest 13th Street (U.S. Highway 441)
that began in mid-June will move to Main Street on Sept. 1
and to University Avenue on Jan. 1.
According to Florida Department of Transportation
spokeswoman Laurie Windham, Main Street will be per-
manently reduced from four lanes to two in
Local the one-mile stretch between North Eighth
News Avenue and North 23rd Avenue, increasing
downtown public parking.
The construction of the three areas will cost at least $13
million, provided by state taxes and will require an estimat-
ed 8,640 hours of labor, Windham said.
During resurfacing, asphalt on the roadway is replaced,
and damaged sidewalk areas are repaired. While sidewalk
repairs require minimal lane closures and can be worked
on throughout the day, road repaving causes major delays,
she said.
Nighttime paving for the 13th Street phase, which spans
four miles from Southwest Archer Road to Northwest Sixth
Avenue, will begin Aug. 1 and continue for up to three
months, according to a press release by the transportation
department.

UF journalism students may
face more than just hiring freezes
when they graduate.
Those who aspire to become
foreign correspondents are warned
by recent high-profile capture
cases that they can expect heavy
workloads and often high danger
levels abroad.
"It's interesting that we have
had a lot of students over the years
who've said they want to be a for-
eign correspondent," said William
McKeen, professor and chairman
of the Department of Journalism.
"If you consider all of the hor-
rible things that have happened
under the name of journalism in
the last 20 years alone, it's kind of
depressing."
The New York Times recently
reported on how information
about its now-freed journalist
David Rohde was often erased or
withheld from media outlets. Roh-
de was captured in Afghanistan by
the Taliban last November and es-
caped in June, seven months later.
Information on his capture was
concealed by The Times and Wiki-
pedia in a joint effort to protect him
from the publicity that could affect
how his captors treated him.


"It's hard to say it was great
because they were covering up
community-generated news," said
Dave Stanton, a visiting professor
in the College of Journalism and
Communications.
"But clearly, in this case the
means were noble for the secrecy
to protect someone's life."
A graduate of the journal-
ism program at
UF and former
Baghdad bureau
chief for USA To-
day, Rick Jervis
knows the dan-
gers of reporting
far from home.
Foley "The thing
which ultimately
teaches you how to excel as a for-
eign correspondent is mostly just
getting out there," Jervis said.
"There's obviously not a whole lot
which you can teach on a practical
basis that can get you prepared."
Each year professors and stu-
dents from UF embark on a study-
abroad trip to South America,
called the Florida FlyIns, to gain
international exposure.
In November 2008, the FlyIns
program went to Guatemala for a
week to report on malnourished
children. While reporting in the
country, world news headlines

headings in Guatemala, causing
some students to question their
safety, said Rikki Klaus, a student
participant in the FlyIn program.
In June, the arrests in North Ko-
rea of Laura Ling and Euna Lee,
two journalists reporting for Cur-
rent TV on the border of the com-
munist country, made headlines
across the world.
"I think life is a dangerous
thing," said Mike Foley, journal-
ism professor and former execu-
tive editor of the St. Petersburg
Times. "We send some people out
to cover hurricanes and storms
and all sorts of things, and you just
do it. That's what we're there for;
that's what we do."
At UF, the College of Journalism
and Communications has made an
effort to educate its students on re-
porting in foreign countries.
Classes such as World Com-
munication Systems and Problems
and Ethics of Journalism in Society
offer students insight into compli-
cated situations they will face as
international correspondents.
"You can't ever be prepared
for what's out there," said Sarah
Henderson, a senior UF journal-
ism major. "But it's nice to know
that my college is looking after its
students."

Harry Potter casts spell


on 14 midnight screens


By ELIZABETH CHURCH and
LINDA LI
Alligator Contributing Writers

Amateur wizards and witches donned
Sorting Hats and Hogwarts garb Tuesday
night as they scrambled for prime theater
real estate at the opening of "Harry Potter
and the Half-Blood Prince."
Fans arrived as early as 10 p.m. Tuesday
to Regal Gainesville Cinemas 14, Southwest
35th Boulevard, for the 12:01 a.m. showing
of the sixth Harry Potter movie.
Helen Leung, a UF junior, excitedly
waited in line wearing a charcoal-colored
sweater with a Hogwarts patch stitched
over the right side of her chest.
Leung said she began preparing her cos-
tume, which also included a Gryffindor red
and gold colored tie, about a month ago.
Like Leung, others modeled the tradi-
tional Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and
Wizardry uniform and carried wooden
wands. Antonio Amorelli, a senior at UF,
sprayed his hair red-orange to match the
Weasley family hair color and added freck-
les to his cheeks.
"Ron's my favorite character because
I can relate to what he goes through,"
Amorelli said. "My heart goes out to him
because he constantly has to follow in his
brothers' footsteps and meet up to his par-
ents' expectations."
Katie Weber, 28, said people "go all out"
for the Harry Potter movies in her home-
town of DeKalb, Ill., something that she
wished more people did in Gainesville.


"I am disappointed that there are not
more people in costumes," Weber said. "It's
a college town. People here are just too cool
to dress up."
Before the showing, a line of fans
wrapped around the side of the theater as
people of all ages endured mosquitoes and
muggy weather to be among the first to see
the film.
The long line that remained at a constant
length of a couple hundred people until
just past midnight caused people to say the
event was unorganized.
Employees called people in by theater
number, causing some to wait in line for
much longer than others.
More than 1,600 advanced-purchase
tickets for the show-
Around ing at Regal Gainesville
Gainesville Cinemas 14 were sold
by Monday.
"This is the first time we have sold out
for an opening in all 14 theaters," said a Re-
gal Cinemas employee who wasn't allowed
to talk to the press. Tuesday morning, the
theater added three 3:30 a.m. showings to
appease people who could not get tickets.
Around the world, 2,500 midnight
screenings of the movie were sold out, ac-
cording to Fandango.com, a movie and en-
tertainment online ticket seller.
"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood
Prince" is turning out to be one of our
fastest-selling titles of the year and has con-
sistently been a top-seller ever since tickets
went on sale on June 17," said Rick Butler,
chief operating officer for Fandango.


Swine flu infection


spreads in Gainesville


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

As confirmed and suspected swine flu
cases climb above 2,000 in Florida, UF's
infirmary has seen an increase in possible
flu carriers.
UF has seen several more confirmed
cases of the virus since the first infected
student in April, said Phillip Barkley, di-
rector of the Student Health Care Center.
Barkley said he didn't know exactly how
many more cases were confirmed.
Even though only a few more have
been verified, there have likely been
many more students infected, he said.
The vast majority of flu cases are the
H1N1 strain, known as swine flu, and the
health center saw about 35 people with
some kind of flu or flu-like symptoms last
week, he said. The health center does not
have the capability to test for the swine
flu.
Paul Myers, assistant director of the
Alachua County Health Department, said
90 percent or more of all flu cases now are
of the HIN1 variety. Alachua County had
42 confirmed cases as of Wednesday, My-
ers said. The state has a total of 2,188 con-
firmed or probable cases-400 of which
were reported in the last week-and 12
deaths. Two of the deaths were reported
Wednesday, and two of those who died
were pregnant.
The Centers for Disease Control and


Prevention reported more than 37,000
cases and more than 200 deaths in the
United States. The actual numbers of
those affected are probably much higher
because most cases go unreported, Myers
said. The average age of those with swine
flu is just under 21 years old, he said, with
most cases occurring between 5 to 24
years old.
"The real question is gonna be
what kind of flu season are we
gonna have this fall."
Paul Myers
assistant director of the Alachua County
Health Department

"That's odd, but that's what a novel
strain will do," he said.
One theory is that those older than 50
may be more resistant to the new strain
because a similar strain struck in 1957,
which may have bolstered their immu-
nity. It's also odd that the flu struck in the
mid- summer. Flu season usually runs
from late fall to early spring, Myers said.
However, since it's possible that the
center will deal with more flu cases in
the fall-and that a swine flu vaccine will
be required or recommended for college
students-the center is preparing itself for
a busier than usual semester.
"The real question is gonna be what
kind of flu season are we gonna have this
fall," he said.

Shands at UF to face employee, patient overflow from AGH closure


AGH, from page 1


some semblance of the program, he said.
Starting Nov. 1, Shands will offer 92 ad-
ditional beds, though a tighter obstetrics unit
may mean there will be two delivering moth-
ers to a room.
"It will fit. It doesn't mean it will be com-
fortable," Goldfarb said.
North Florida Regional Medical Center is
also prepared for more patients, while the Ala-
chua County Public Health Department plans
to extend its hours and services.


Jean Munden, Alachua County Health De-
partment administrator, said increasing the
department's operations would depend on
whether or not it receives the $750,000 from
low-income pool state funding, for which it has
qualified and expects to receive next week.
The department expects to admit many of
the low-income patients without health care
who can no longer depend on AGH.
Shands at UF, Goldfarb said, has also taken
steps to provide for patients without health in-
surance by partnering with Solantic to open an
urgent care center in September.
Still, some doubted Shands at UF's ability


to treat veterans and those lacking heath care.
"Solantic is not a cheap,
affordable option to health-
care," said a Gainesville
resident and veteran at the
meeting who stressed the
need for a plan serving the
majority of the community.
Others said the cultural
Donovan transition would be huge
for AGH patients.
"We already know that services to the low-
income are very poor," said Commissioner
Jack Donovan, who spoke of a "population


left behind."
Goldfarb said a bad economy and financial
losses made closing AGH the best solution,
estimating the shut down would save about
$79.2 million over the next seven years.
"As a last resort when we looked at those
storm clouds, we said, 'You know, we have to
close AGH,'" he said. "The decision obviously
was a difficult one."
Vice President of University Relations Jane
Adams said after the institution is dismantled,
UF plans to convert the property into a tech-
transfer development complex, a facility used
to bring UF's research to the marketplace.

The colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Den-

to other colleges like journalism and Fine
Arts will receive support from the grant.
UF officials said the grant indicates the
university has strong programs in many dif-
ferent fields.
Peter Stacpoole, director of UF's Clinical
and Translational Science Institute, said one
example of how UF will use the money is

to foster research on genetic diseases and
bring discoveries to the marketplace more
efficiently.
David Guzick, former dean of the Uni-
versity of Rochester School of Medicine &
Dentistry in New York,
said his school used a
UFc similar grant from the
Academics NIH in 2006 to translate
research on cervical can-
cer into a widely adopted vaccine.
Not only will the grant help UF, Guzick
said, but the potential discoveries and result-
ing patents will likely create local jobs and

drinking-age students.
"People here at the University of
Florida can think on their own without
arbitrary restrictions being bestowed on
them," he said.
"I've already told Machen this. He
didn't take it very well," he said.
However, he said if it's going to be
harder to drink at the Landing, UF should
give students something else to do.
As a result, he said talks are underway
to bring the band Maroon 5 to Jackson-
ville to play a show outside the Landing
on the Friday night before the game. He
said Jacksonville has been asked to pick
up the tab.
"You can't just tell students they can't
come here and drink," he said. "Let's give
them something to do."


Other members of Student Govern-
ment are fighting the proposed changes in
their own way. Student Sen. Alan Yanuck
is circulating a student petition and will
help author a Senate resolution, which
will likely be voted on Tuesday, opposing
Machen's proposals.
"On the whole, we feel that Bernie Ma-
chen, as the president of the university,
should be focused more on our academic
performance and the budget cuts than he
should on our personal lives," Yanuck
said.
He also questioned if more safety pre-
cautions are needed since safety zones
have been implemented and a student
hasn't died during the festivities since
2005.
"Nothing's gone seriously wrong in
four or five years and why do we need
more regulation?" he asked.

Vasoli said it's a major step in a
different direction than The Start-
ing Line's pop-punk style.
"When I entered my 20s...my
interest led me to rock and roll and
and I found a lot of other stuff that
interested me like jazz, soul, blues
and electronic music," the 25-year-
old singer said. "My hunger to
do other stuff had gotten really
strong. That was the big motiva-
tion behind doing something dif-
ferent."
Vasoli said that at first he tried
to work his new ideas into The
Starting Line but decided to start
Person L when other band mem-
bers didn't respond enthusiasti-
cally.
"After a while, I realized that
The Starting Line should be it's
own thing," said Vasoli, who cites
The Battles, Radiohead and Drive
Like Jehu as major musical influ-
ences.
"I shouldn't have to force a
square into a circle, stuff that
didn't belong there into The Start-

money and keeping the band's

not really what we're looking for."
Vasoli said he's happy with the

"I measure tours based on how

"And I'm having a ton on this

The Gainesville performance

Vasoli said he's a little bit nervous
because two members of the five-

"It'll be a scramble," he said.
"But as long as there's more than
12 people, I'll be smiling ear to

But Vasoli said he doesn't get
discouraged when the crowds are
sparse.
"I expect there to be no one who
knows who we are, and if there are
some, I'm pleasantly surprised,"
he said. "We're so new and such
a shift in gears from what they
expect that I expect to pay a lot of

DJs spin parties to life at Gainesville's bars, clubs


MEAGAN MCGONE + AVENUE WRITER
It's 15 minutes until midnight on a Sat-
urday. The bouncer sits at the entrance to
Spannk, wrapping neon green bands around
clubbers' wrists. As they enter the bar, green
and red beams of light dance through the
thick smoke from the fog machine like laser
confetti.
Bodies twist and tangle on the dance floor,
wearing glow stick halos on their heads. Some
guys have sunglasses on, and one girl wears a
shirt that matches the glimmer from the dis-
co ball hanging from the ceiling. Everyone's
sweating; nobody cares.
In the front of the room, tucked behind
the bar and hidden behind an old-school
Plymouth car d6cor is the DJ booth. Without
the crafting that happens in this spot, there
would be no club. There would be nobody
fist-pumping on the dance floor, no sweating
bodies packed on the stage. Without the DJ,
there would be no party.
A DJ isn't just a person sitting in a closed
off comer playing music off of iTunes. Mas-
terminding the perfect music for a party takes
sleepless nights and busy schedules, and there
is a lot more to being a DJ than people are
aware of.
Vijay "DJ Vi" Seixas pulls the headphones
from his ears and looks up from his laptop. He
doesn't dance, or bob his head or even tap his
feet as he spins, he concentrates on the crowd's
feedback to the music blaring through the
speakers. The electro remix of Michael Jack-
son's "Thriller" seems to be a hit.
"The crowd at Spannk is awesome. They're


nuts. They scream every song," he said.
Vijay may have been bom to be a DJ with
such a catchy name (Vijay the DJ), but he pre-
fers to drop the jay. The 22-year-old started
spinning after attending a electro-music festi-
val in Miami with a friend when he was 18.
He said his style differs from anyone else's
because he introduced Gainesville to the indie-
electro sound. He also began the well-known
Neon Liger event that draws hundreds of ea-
ger clubbers on Saturday nights.
"Usually I'm a DJ for hire, but Saturdays
at Spannk and Tuesdays at Speakeasy are my
parties," he said. "I can do what I want and
play what I want."
His switch to a Fergie song is so natural it
almost goes unnoticed. Everyone keeps danc-
ing.
DJ Vi says that he loves spinning in
Gainesville because the crowd is so wild in
this college party town.
"No one dances in Miami and the big-
ger cities. They are all more pretentious and
snobby. Here it's more party," he said. "Here
they're college kids, they want to party and
get down."
A prominent Latin DJ in Gainesville,
24-year-old DJ Esteban, disagrees with Vi. Al-
though he has twice seen girls strip down in
the booth for a song request, he said spinning
in Gainesville doesn't compare to performing
in a bigger city.
"In Miami, the clubs stay open later and
they party all night, so my sets run for five
or six hours," he said. "Here it's only one or
two."
He also said that unlike Miami, most


Gainesville clubs require DJs to lug their
own equipment around, set it up, and take it
down at the end of the night. In bigger cities,
the clubs usually provide DJs with turntables,
speakers and lights to do their jobs.
DJ Sol, 24, a popular house spinner in
Gainesville, said that this serves as an ad-
vantage for anyone who gets into DJing. The
equipment isn't cheap, so only really serious
DJs will make the investment. He has been ac-
cumulating equipment for years; a computer
with a program that holds music files, turn-
tables to manipulate the sounds, headphones
that allow him to listen to the next track he
will mix into the current.

"To me, being a DJ is about
spreading the art of music
around the world."
LADY CHERELLE
DJ

He said that technology has made his job
easier than when he first started eight years
ago. Computers hold thousands of songs,
while before he would carry bulky record
books around that couldn't hold even close
to that. The variety is crucial because he per-
forms sets six out of seven days in the week.
"It's a really busy job, and I don't know
if people realize that," he said. "It can be ex-
hausting."
Along with scheduled sets at bars, social
events and private parties, DJs' jobs require
them to have a social life outside the clubs. Sol


said that after parties are a daily routine, and
they often take place at his house.
"Then there's all the other things that come
with knowing everyone in Gainesville. It's al-
ways somebody's birthday, farewell party or
welcome party," he said. "Not to mention my
sleeping schedule is totally thrown off."
But having a daytime job that allows for a
normal sleeping pattern doesn't seem to work
for DJ Sol. He has tried; he always go back to
being a DJ.
He may not have time to experience a social
life of his own outside of the DJ world, but the
good thing about the profession lies in having
fun and working at the same time. The better
night he has, the more likely it is that he's con-
necting with the crowd through his music.
Lady Cherelle, 33, says that communica-
tion with a crowd through music is what
separates a good DJ from a bad one. As a very
popular house DJ who has played around the
country, she feels that music is a universal lan-
guage that she can reflect her personality and
life through.
As a female DJ, like other industries, she
faces some discrimination, but she doesn't let
it affect her. If someone blindly puts in her CD
without looking at the cover, it would be next
to impossible to interpret her gender.
"A good DJ is a good DJ, either male or fe-
male," she says.
And ultimately, she advises that a good DJ
becomes a producer. It opens up opportuni-
ties to get music heard across more avenues.
"To me, being a DJ is about spreading the
art of music around the world," she says.
"That's my goal. That's what I want to do."

It is the year of open-minded-
ness. We have a black president, and
there's a good chance we'll have our
first Hispanic Supreme Court judge.
States are falling to gay marriage
faster than the value of the Ameri-
can dollar. And the number one sell-
ing genre of music in our modem
times is country.
That's right folks, good ol' down
home country twang is outselling
pop, rock and hip-hop.
Country music maybe formulaic,
but that's where the beauty lies. It is
an unpretentious sound that aims to
pull you in to its web of comforting
familiarity.
Country tells stories we can all
relate to. If we can get past our initial
prejudices, we may discover some-
thing beautifully relevant. Country
music is the soundtrack to your life.

National resurgence of records noted locally


While the CD bows out to digital
music in terms of convenience, vi-
nyl records are making a comeback
nationwide with listeners who want
more than a sound file.
Local vinyl vendors are seeing the
national trend show up in their shops
as well.
Ted Sharpe, who designed jazz
and western vinyl covers in the '60s
and now owns Sharpe's Music on
West University Avenue, noticed a
steady increase several years ago.
"I've always been told 'get out of
vinyl, it's dead,'" he said.
He now sells about 10 records for
every CD, with classic rock such as
The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Led Zep-
pelin and jazz selling the best.
With the increase of online music
sales, Sharpe believes that some lis-
teners have begun to crave something
they can hold.
"The record has so much more
personality," Sharpe said. "Each one
is a little piece of history.,"
Sharpe believes that records
sound better than digital files, a sen-
timent echoed by fellow vinyl lovers
but hotly contested by many fans of
MP3s and similar formats.
But Tony Wienbender, spokes-
man for No Idea records, believes
the local folk-punk label has found a
solution to the disagreement: provide
a digital download code with every
vinyl record.
No Idea presses vinyl records for
all of the bands they sign. Hot Water
Music and Against Me! sell the best.
Sometimes, the label will offer sev-


eral versions of art with each album
release, replacing the standard black
vinyl with swirled colors and having
multiple versions of cover art. Die-


hard collectors will often purchase
four copies of the same album to col-
lect the different art versions.
Records have been the traditional
medium for punk music, and some
other labels have embraced the resur-


gence so whole heartedly that they've
stopped selling CDs.
But Wienbender feels that goes
too far.
"It's a knee-jerk reaction, and
that's kinda stupid," he said.

Band promotes environmental efforts on tour


JON SILMAN + AVENUE WRITER
T13C! is a band on a mission.
While pursuing its passion and sharing its
music on the road, the band is helping protect
the environment.
The band recently teamed up with CREx, a
local nonprofit initiative started by Earth Giv-
ers, to make its recent tour carbon neutral.
This summer, the band completed a 2,963-
mile, 19-show in-state tour. With the help
of CREx, the band offset the environmental
impact from its tour van and the electrical
consumption at their venues.
Joe Loffredo, 28, and Mike Loffredo, 28,
are Gainesville residents, twin brothers and
bandmates in T13C!.
They sport beards and wear the same jeans
to interviews. Joe sometimes wears a knitted
cap on his head to avoid being confused for
his brother.
T13C! appeared on the first season of
"America's Got Talent" with David Hassel-
hoff.
"Hasslehoff is taller than most people
think," Joe said. "I thought he was absolutely
huge to be honest with you."
"He's as tall as a light post," Mike said.
The Gainesville-based band has three
national tours and more than 20 in-state tours
under its belt.
With its last tour the band decided to use
the stage to educate its fans about the environ-
ment.
But the band is not just jumping on the
"green" wagon for the sake of being trendy.


The guys are committed to teaching young
people what they can do to help the environ-
ment.
"We've recycled ever since we were kids,"
Joe said. "That's just something our parents
instilled in us."
T13C! kept a recycling bag at all times in its
touring van and at shows the members taught
audiences about ways to help reduce their
carbon footprint the total set of greenhouse
gas emissions caused directly or indirectly by
people or organizations.

"We've reegcled since we were
kids. That's just something our
parents instilled in us.
JOE LOFFREDO
vocalist/guitar player

"There are basic things you can do to help,"
Joe said. "I think every kid in Gainesville has
a computer. Turn it off at night."
When electronics are left plugged in all day
the electronics draw energy, this affects wal-
lets and the environment adversely.
"It's like your own personal economic
stimulus," Joe said.
The band also promotes the efficiency of
quick showers.
"We don't shave very often either," Mike
Loffredo said.
The members said carpooling, bike riding
and public transportation, and if someone
must drive, scooters are great alternatives to


driving a car.
"You also get a free hug out of it," Joe said,
about rising scooters. "When two people are
on a scooter one person hugs the other."
The band chose to work with CREx because
of the company's commitment to creating
locally based carbon dioxide reductions in
Gainesville.
"We were thrilled to be able to work with
such a great band on such a unique and
worthwhile project," said Jacob Cravey, co-
founder of Earth Givers.
CREx calculated that T13C! would produce
10 tons of carbon dioxide during the month-
long tour.
About 75 percent came from travel, and 25
percent was attributed to venue environment.
The neutrality of the tour has been certified
by an independent third-party verifier.
ClimateSafe examined the emissions
caused by the tour and the reductions created
by CREx.
Once it was determined that the reductions
equaled the emissions, the tour was certified
neutral.
Joe and Mike said they plan to book eco-

However, if their rock-star dreams don't

movie reviews


Band-based films find balance between music, plotlines


Music and film don't always
synch up. While some try to hard
to push the entertainment factor
with forced tour bus orgies and
unlimited profanity, others come
up dry. But among the failed at-
tempts, some music-related films
mesh both genres of entertainment
in perfect harmony.
Cameron Crowe's film about
an aspiring rock journalist holds
its own as both a mockumentary
and an award-winning picture. As
a film, "Almost Famous" has a ter-
rific screenplay, great direction and
standout performances by Patrick
Fugit, Kate Hudson, Jason Lee and
Billy Crudup. The film, based on
Crowe's experience as a journalist
with Rolling Stone magazine, was
technically a box office flop, but 10


years later it watches just as well as
when it came out.
A mockumentary of sorts,
"This is Spinal Tap" explores the
1982 U.S. tour of fictional heavy-
metal band, Spinal Tap. Rob Rein-
er, Christopher Guest, Michael
McKean and Harry Shearer wrote
and also played pivotal roles in the
film. "This is Spinal Tap" parodies
heavy-metal bands of the 80s while
being funny, realistic and fresh.
Since its release in 1984, the film
became a cult success, and in 2002
the Library of Congress added it to
the National Film Registry.
Although, more of a romantic
comedy, "High Fidelity" relies on
music to get its point across. The
movie comes off as a little dated
when you listen to John Cusack


GREG FINK + AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER


rant about how to make the perfect
mix tape. But it's the ranting that
makes the movie so good. With a
well-written screenplay, a terrific
performance by John Cusack and
plenty of music references, "High
Fidelity" is the romantic comedy
for the music lover.
"The Last Waltz" is a triumph as
both a concert and film. The movie
covers the last concert of The Band
after 16 years on the road. Just
as The Band made a lasting im-
pression on rock and roll, Martin
Scorsese made a lasting influence
on concert filmmaking when he
directed "The Last Waltz" in 1978.
Boasting beautiful cinematography
and camera work, the film feels less
like a concert movie and more like
a blockbuster film. The movie, just
under two hours long, keeps view-
ers compelled with supplemental


band interviews in between terrific
live performances.
It may be the Gainesville con-
nection that makes "Runnin'
Down a Dream" so compelling.
The film, tracing Tom Petty & the
Heartbreakers' career, opens with
live concert footage from the bands
Sept. 21, 2006 performance at the
Stephen C. O'Connell Center. The
film traces the band's beginnings
in Gainesville, complete with
home video footage. As the movie
continues, Gainesville becomes far
less prominent as The Heartbreak-
ers makes its move toward success,
but clips of the Gainesville show
appear throughout to remind you
of the bands humble origins. The
various celebrity interviews from
people like Johnny Depp, Dave
Grohl and Stevie Nicks, along with
the momentum built up by inter-


* Musicians' melodies leave women wanting more


MEAGAN MCGONE + AVENUE WRITER
* It's practically a scientific fact that women
have a sexual fascination with musicians.
Exhibit A: My mother, a woman so con-
* servative about sex that I thought my birth
may have been through the Immaculate
Conception. But give her tickets to a Poison
* concert and she'll shimmy into her skin-tight
leather pants and snap on a lacy, red bra be-
fore Bret Michaels can even sing the words
"talk dirty to me."
Then there is my 15-year-old sister, who
still thinks boys have cooties, but melts any
time a Jonas brother's curly locks bounce
across the Disney Channel screen.
And finally, there is me. I'm not crazy
about a famous rocker, or a tween pop star,


but the first time I heard my boyfriend play,
I instantly wanted him. His Beatles T-shirt,
self-assurance and 12-string acoustic guitar
set off a "great sex!" flag in my brain.
So what is the appeal in men that can
play music? Take away the instruments and
the sappy lyrics, and aren't they just normal
men?
Actually, no. One time, I was on a date
with a guy, and as I stepped into his car I
almost crushed his guitar strings that he had
"coincidentally" placed in my seat. "Watch
the strings!" he exclaimed. "I have to restring
my baby when I get home!"
Just like a Gucci bag, women can smell
a phony. It's not sexy to boast about skills
that probably don't exist. And if a man has
to learn to play a guitar to get girls, he prob-

antfiea eim


ably doesn't have
the confidence to
rock out anyway.
What makes a mu-
sician sexy is his
talent, and talent
takes depth.
n To women, the
Meagan McGone depth that shines
Columnist through the music
parallels with the
passion he'll have in the relationship.
From a realistic sense, to be attracted to a
musician seems a little silly. A muscular con-
struction worker with a body that promises
to be her bodyguard and highlights his abil-
ity to handle her in bed should be more ap-
pealing to a woman's eye. Yet rockers with


their teenage-girl sized jeans, are the most
sought after men on the earth, and it's due to
their appearance on the inside. The sensitive
lyrics and passionate guitar playing indicate
that musicians make great lovers. If they can
make a piece of wood sing that way, imag-
ine what they could do to you.
Once, I had a huge fight in a romantic
cabin on Valentine's Day with the musician
I fell for. After slamming doors and fuming
through moments of silence, he took his gui-
tar by the lake, and I trailed behind him.
He played a song that he had written
for me, and as much as I tried to fight it, my
feelings of anger quickly vanished. It may
sound really cliche or even cheesy, but what
happened in the bedroom afterward defi-
nitely was not.

throughout the almost four-hour-
long film.
More than just an album, "A
Hard Day's Night" was also a rev-
olutionary British film. The 1964
comedy uses a mock documentary
format that shows a few days of
The Beatles' lives.
With a simple plot line filled
with numerous gags, the movie
is enjoyable and fun to watch, al-
though it can feel a little dated.The
real importance of the film comes
less from its musical inspiration
and more from its film format.
Director Richard Lester's use of

movie in black and white are ele-
ments of cinematic style that still
influence films today.

Local bands prepare to move on

ALEX ORLANDO + AVENUE WRITER


Gainesville is the cradle of start-
up bands. As new bands pop up left
and right, there inevitably comes a
point, at which they must drift on.
After the diplomas have been hand-
ed, the career pressures start to pile
on, bands are left with three choices:
stay put, break up or leave the nest.
Gainesville bands Debutaunts,
Umoja Orchestra and Squeaky have
reached that point.
"What's in Gainesville anyway?"
Debutaunts frontman Jazek Creacy
said.
The determined, young, four-
piece, indie/rock/pop band had
its first show at Club Red in 2006.
Since then, the band has had several
breaks and is looking to get out of
Gainesville as soon as possible.
Creacy said the Gainesville mu-
sic scene has fallen apart and is now
dominated by hillbilly punk rockers
and friend-based college bands, but
notes Gainesville as a great place to
get a footing.
"If it's taught me anything, it's
that everybody has to have a start-
ing point," Creacy said.
But to grow, the guys feel they
have to branch out.
After meeting through gaines-
vilebands.com, the members began
playing shows around town.
Debutaunts recorded its first EP
in 2007 with Sky Lab Records and
sent it to Universal Records. This
booked the band a showcase in
New York, where it hooked up with
Grammy-nominated producer Matt
Goldman.
"Now, we're in a position where
we have the right people behind us
to take a larger step," Creacy said.
In September the band is moving
to Atlanta where it will be record-
ing with Goldman for two months.
From there the band will launch a
national tour to promote the album.
"We're not going to stop until


we've taken it as far as it can go,"
Creacy said.
With the move to Atlanta com-
ing up, Debutaunts will be too busy
for a farewell show, but it will try to
make a stop during its tour.
Umoja Orchestra, Gainesville's
14-piece Latin/afro-beat/funk
band, has chosen another route: for
now, it's staying put. But, with two
members in different covers of the
world, the band is putting things
on hold.
In 2005, Umoja had its first live
performance at University Audito-
rium for Hispanic Heritage month
where it won "best in dance," a cap-
tion that some of Umoja's members
still question the validity of.

"If it's taught me anything,
it's that everybody has to
have a starting point."
JAZEK CREACY
frontman

They set off playing shows all
over Gainesville, rehearsing in Jen-
nings Hall dorm rooms where they
were often interrupted by RAs tell-
ing them to quiet down.
After three years and three al-
bums, the band decided to put
things on hold after David Boren-
stein (saxophone) and Jason Prover
(trumpet) left. Borenstein is headed
to China to study Chinese politi-
cal science, and Prover is attending
New York University for master's
degree in jazz. But, that isn't to say
they won't be missing the town they
started in.
"I miss the community aspect of
Gainesville," Prover said. "Every-
thing's a free-for-all [in New York],
man."
The band took Prover and Boren-
stein's absences hard and refused to


replace the two members. The band
revels in its fraternal ways and func-
tion on love and friendship. After
all, "umoja" is Swahili for "unity."
"Umoja is the only band, I feel, is
one cohesive unit," Micah Shalom,
trombone player, said.
There is still speculation that the
band may continue. The flier for its
last show on April 17, 2008, read
"last show for a while."
"We have to retool and kind of
rethink things, but it's definitely still
an option," Shalom said.
For some bands, however, re-
uniting is not an option. Squeaky, a
four-piece indie rock band will not
be continuing after its drummer,
Danny Welsh, moves back to Mem-
phis, Tenn.
The band has been around since
1995 and is sick of finding new
drummers, said frontman Harry
Monkhorst.
With the exception of Welsh,
Squeaky is a band of middle-aged
men living the married life with
kids. The musicians list '70s AM ra-
dio as one of their influences as well
as older bands like Superchunk,
Arches of Loaf and Fugazzi.
They started the band mainly as
a way to get away from the family
and act like 12-year-old boys again,
bassist Steven Bottom said.
"We just had to play music, or
we'd go crazy," Bottom said.
Monkhorst considers the
band Gainesville natives. Out of
Gainesville he has gained love for
his bandmates, hearing loss, broken
cymbals, broken strings, smiles
and, above all, fun times. Monk-
horst said he can't understand why
bands leave Gainesville.
To up-and-coming bands in
Gainesville Monkhorst offers this
advice: "Do it because you love it,
not because you want anyone to
like it."

This three-day, 12 age nt on Mount Takenoko typically

Tebow will go home with an ESPY


There are three events that consis-
tently mark the middle of July
on my calendar the release of
the annual update to EA Sports' NCAA
Football game (which my colleague
Adam Berry so generously opined on in
Tuesday's paper), my birthday (today,
time to do it big) and the always-inter-
esting ESPY Awards.
The show is sadly not broadcast live
- it was taped Wednesday and will
air Sunday at 9 p.m. but enjoyable
nonetheless if for no other reason than
because it's a chance to remember all
the sweet sports moments from the year
before.
For UF fans, there is the attraction of
Tim Tebow competing as one possible
reason to watch. The rising senior is up
for Best Male College Athlete and Best


Moment.


S BEST MALE COL-
LEGE ATHLETE:
When I was handi-
Phil Kegler capping this race, I
came into it think-
Phil on the Hill ing I wouldn't
pkegler@alligator.org pick Tebow but
couldn't convince
myself of anyone who was better. Okla-
homa quarterback Sam Bradford lost to
him in the BCS National Championship
Game (and it's not like he was ridicu-
lously better during the regular season).
San Diego State pitcher Stephen Stras-
burg is a phenom, but I have to down-
grade him for not getting his team past
its NCAA Regional. Oklahoma forward

Top UF Athletes: Best of the Rest


don't envy David Letterman. Putting
together a top 10 list can be fairly dif-
ficult.
At a school like UF, with a success-
ful sports program and plenty of talented
athletes, narrowing down the pack to 10
players was not a particularly easy task for
myself and the five other alligatorSports
columnists. Some, like Phil Kegler, went
through a ridiculous multi-step process to
create their lists. Phil may have even used
matrices, for all I know.
Readers of the paper and listeners of the
alligatorSports Podcast have sent in a few
e-mails making perfectly valid arguments
for people who had great years but didn't
make the list. And while we couldn't make
a top 25 list there are only so many pa-
pers in a semester I'd like to recognize
some of the athletes who just missed the
cut. This list is in no particular order, but it
emphasizes the smaller-sport athletes who
weren't recognized for their accomplish-
ments.
KELLY MURPHY, VOLLEYBALL: Elyse Cusack


E took the 10th spot
on our list due to
her all-around suc-
cess and leader-
ship, but Murphy
was the breakout

season for the vol-

was named the
Southeastern Con-
ference Freshman
of the Year and picked up national fresh-
man of the year awards from two different
organizations. She finished 11th in our vot-
ing, but I feel like she was more than wor-
thy of the top 10.
MARIAM KEVKHISHVILI, TRACK AND FIELD:
There were three constants on days that the
track and field team had a meet: sunrise,
sunset and Mariam Kevkhishvili winning.
The national champion shot putter, hands-
down the best in the nation in the event,

Top 10 Uf Athletes of 2008-09

Nelson rewrites record books en route to WCWS championship series


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
sports@alligator.org

Stacey Nelson did not receive
the national recognition Tim Tebow
did, but she may have been better at
her sport than any other athlete in
Gainesville.
Nelson led the Gators to two
straight Women's College World
Series appearances, falling just short
this year in the championship series
against Washington.
Her relaxed, humble attitude off
the field was matched only by her
intensity and dominance once she
stepped into the
circle. With 41
wins, Nelson led
the Gators to a
63-5 record and a
No. 1 ranking for
most of the sea-
son.
Nelson was so
Nelson instrumental in
making the Gators softball program
a national-championship contender
that coach Tim Walton said she,
along with senior Kim Waleszonia,
will be honored even after their four
outstanding years on the field.
"As long as I coach here, you
won't ever see a No. 5 (Waleszonia),
you won't ever see a No. 42 (Nelson)
on anybody else's back," Walton
said. "We don't really retire num-
bers, but they won't be worn as long


as I'm the coach here at the Univer-
sity of Florida."
After a wildly successful junior
year and a run to the school's first
WCWS, Nelson faced high expec-


tations entering her senior year
- maybe even the possibility that
the miraculous 70-5 season in 2008
couldn't be topped.
Not only did she meet the expec-


tations, she surpassed them.
In 2008, Nelson joked that no-
hitters might not be her thing the
one accomplishment a pitcher who
had seemingly done it all could not

yet add to her list. In 2009, Nelson
threw two of them. She also became
the first Gator to strike out 1,000 bat-
ters and holds nearly every pitching
mark in the UF record books.
With that kind of success, it's easy
to assume she would be aware of her
stats and each record she owns. But
not Nelson, who won the Lowe's Se-
nior CLASS Award for her achieve-
ments on and off the field.
"People don't believe me when I
say I don't know my stats," Nelson
said, "but I really don't."
Even the list of accolades Nelson
earned near the end of and after her
final season is remarkable. In addi-
tion to the Senior CLASS Award,
she was a top-three finalist for the
USA Softball Collegiate Player
of the Year, earned first-team All-
America honors from two different
organizations and, perhaps most
impressively, was selected as one
of five pitchers on the USA Softball
Women's National Team.
For dominating opponents this
season and during her entire career,
as well as staking her claim as the
best pitcher in program history, Sta-
cey Nelson is the alligatorSports No.
2 UF Athlete of 2008-09.

BYTHE NUMBERS: Nelson is the sec-
ond athlete to receive a vote from
all six panelists. She received four
second-place votes, one third-place
vote and one fourth-place vote.


Tebow's words backed up with ring


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
sports@alligator.org

In 107 words, Tim Tebow went from
hyped hero to living legend.
"To the fans and everybody in Gator Nation,
I'm sorry. I'm extremely sorry. We were hop-
ingfor an undefeated season. That was my goal,
something Florida has never done here.
"I promise you one thing a lot of good will
come out of this. You will never see any player
in the entire country play as hard as I will play
the rest of the season. You will never see someone
push the rest of his team as hard as I will push
everybody the rest of the season. You will never
see a team play harder than we will the rest of
the season.
"God bless."
Tebow has made plenty of big plays -
most notably his fourth-and-1 conversion
at Tennessee in 2006 and his entire record-
setting Heisman-winning campaign of 2007
- but now he had failed in the unlikeliest
of moments.
The Gators had been upset. At home.
Against an unranked Mississippi team. Hav-
ing failed on a final fourth-and-i, the spot
where Tebow had been seen as automatic.
But when he looked at his worst, he was
actually at his best. His words became a ral-
lying cry for teammates and fans.
These words would have rung hollow had
the Gators not responded the way they did.
UF won its remaining 10 games by double
digits, including eight by 28 points or more.
And this is why Tebow was unanimously
picked as our top UF athlete for last year.
In his junior season, he ran a prolific of-
fense that averaged 43.6 points per game
while once again leading the Gators in pass-
ing and rushing yards and totaling 42 touch-
downs.


Tebow fell short of a second straight Heis-
man Trophy, finishing third, but earned more
first-place votes than winner Sam Bradford
and runner-up Colt McCoy.
But he was at his best during the team's
two biggest games.
The Jacksonville native earned BCS Most
Outstanding Offensive Player honors after
throwing for 231 yards and two touchdowns
and adding 109 yards on the ground.
This came a month after Tebow earned
Southeastern Conference Championship
MVP honors, going 14 of 22 with 216 pass-
ing yards and 57 rushing yards, including a
5-yard touchdown pass to Riley Cooper on
a slant that sealed the game
# with 2:50 remaining.
"I've had some great
players, and I've got some
great players on this team,"
UF coach Urban Meyer said
after the game. "But I've
never had one like this.
Tebow Tim's got something spe-
cial inside him.
"I'm not talking about throwing. I'm not
talking about running. I'm talking about
making everyone around him better. That
fourth quarter was vintage Tim Tebow."
He made an otherwise boring national
championship celebration inside The Swamp
immediately newsworthy with his drawn-
out, climactic announcement:
"... Oh and by the way, one more thing -
let's do it again. I'm coming back!"
After living up to this year's promise, it's
hard to doubt his next one.
For his near-miraculous leadership in
leading the Gators to their second national
championship in three years while solidify-
ing his place as one of the best college foot-
ball players of all time, Tim Tebow is the al-
ligatorSports No. 1 UF Athlete of 2008-09.

PHIL, from page 28
did not win a championship, and despite being the
easy No. 1 pick in this year's NBA Draft, he just
didn't impress me in his sport as much as Tebow
did in his.
Boston University hockey player Matt Gilroy
may be getting undervalued by me, as his team
won a title, and I'm admittedly not the biggest col-
lege hockey buff. But after looking up his back-
ground, he doesn't seem to be a clear level above
Tebow, and I'm sure voters will be more inclined
to pick someone from a bigger sport.
BEST MOMENT: This category, unbelievably
enough, is actually the one I think in which Tebow
will come up short. Tebow's The Promise is go-
ing up against just two other events Helio Cas-
troneves winning the Indy 500 and the U.S. men's
swim team's thrilling finish in the 4x100m freestyle
relay during the 2008 Olympics. Castroneves' vic-
tory shortly after being found innocent on tax eva-
sion charges is a story that greatly tugs at your
heartstrings, but as a "sports moment," it falls far
behind the other two to me.
Listening to The Promise in person is certainly
a moment I'll never forget, and I think it will be
well-remembered based on how the Gators fin-
ished the season. But the 2008 Olympics swim-
ming competition and Michael Phelps' quest for
eight golds stole a nation's hearts. In this particular
race (which ranked No. 4 in my column Tuesday
as far as the Top 10 Sporting Events I Wish I Saw
Live), the Americans edged the French by .08 of a
second after trailing by .18 of a second with 50 me-
ters left. Jason Lezak, the team's anchor, swam the
best 100 meters of his life with the fastest split of
all time, preserving Phelps' quest for eight golds
(he swam first in the relay, but this was Lezak's
race to shine).
One for two isn't bad for Tebow, right? Al-
though he did have the unfortunate luck of run-
ning into a camera crew from TMZ.com, the social
gossip site, that quizzed him about his relation-
ship prospects upon landing in Los Angeles.
You can't have it all. Unless, of course, it's your
birthday.

lievable year she had.
GEMMA SPOFFORTH, SWIMMING
AND DIVING: Spofforth won two
individual national titles her
second straight 100 back and third
straight 200 back at the 2009
NCAA Swimming and Diving
Championships. The junior was the
SEC Female Swimmer of the Year,
and her two NCAA titles were the
99th and 100th in UF history. The
fact that she won two national
championships made her worthy
of the list, but she received far less
attention and a much smaller spot-
light despite being so successful.
KELSEY BRUDER, SOFTBALL: Brud-
er's numbers were comparable to
those of Francesca Enea, who was
our No. 7 athlete of the year, and
that's no small accomplishment.
Bruder stepped into the right-field
position left open by former Gator
Mary Ratliff and had an outstand-
ing year, finishing with 68 RBI, 16
home runs and a .713 slugging per-
centage.
AJA PACULBA, SOFTBALL: With Kim
Waleszonia injured for most of the
season, Paculba's early season
move to leadoff batter became even
more important. The sophomore
set the single-season steals record
with 27, hit .368, had an impressive
.603 slugging percentage and a .492
on-base percentage, just two points
behind Enea's team-leading .494.
MEGAN KERNS, SOCCER: Perhaps
embarrassingly, no soccer player
even made it on our preliminary
list despite the team finishing the
year ranked in the top 10.
In 2008, Kems was named to the
All-SEC First Team for leading
the Gators in goals (13) and tying
for the lead in assists (9) to total 35
points while leading UF to a 19-4-1
record, including a perfect 11-0 in
the SEC.

JEREMY CRISCIONE, CROSS COUN-
TRY: In a sport all about concentra-
tion and dedication, Criscione was
the definition of both. Quiet by na-
ture, Criscione didn't flaunt his ac-
complishments, but after qualify-
ing for the NCAA Championships
as an individual, the All-American
finished 20th in his final meet at UF
to cap off his career.
COREY HARTUNG, GYMNASTICS: As
the only senior on the UF gymnas-
tics team this year, Hartung helped
lead the Gators to a Super Six ap-
pearance despite several key inju-
ries and an otherwise young team.
BILLY HORSCHEL, GOLF: Horschel's
final season as a Gator was an ap-
propriate ending to an outstand-
ing career. As a senior, he picked
up numerous accolades: his third
PING All-America First-Team
honor, the SEC Golfer of the Year
and a unanimous First-Team All-
SEC selection.
CALVIN SMITH, TRACK AND FIELD:
Smith had an impressive all-
around year for the No. 3 men's
track and field team, but he shined
the brightest at the SEC Outdoor
Championships. The 2009 SEC
Outdoor Men's Runner of the Year
captured the Commissioner's Tro-
phy by finishing first in the 400m,
second in the 200m and being a
part of the first-place 4x100 team,
which held the fastest time in the
nation.
So there you have it 10 ath-
letes whose individual accomplish-
ments were so impressive that they
deserved to be recognized, even
if they weren't able to squeeze in
to our top 10. And the argument
could even be made that this list is
incomplete, that even a top 20 list
doesn't do every athlete justice.
I wonder if Letterman has that
many quality jokes left over every
night.
