Hope for Haiti in Four Parts


By C.J. Pruner
Alligator Staff Writer
cpruner@alligator org

imagine a world where all hopes, feelings
and emotions are irrelevant.
Hot and cold are just lukewarm.
Colors are turned into a gray muddle,
and conversations are nothing more than a
string of words.
In the days . .11.. .ii, a winter earthquake
that jolted the island of Haiti, this has become
Sky Georges' world.


Two Worlds. One Heart.
No Answers
Standing before a crowd of 400 at a vigil on
an uncharacteristically warm night in Janu-
ary, Georges, a .,, iii,. .1. - senior at UF, is no
longer who he was a week ago. In the span of
a few sunrises and sunsets, he has become a
breathing shadow -barely recognizable.
As a pastor drones on about the need for
hope in a time of great darkness, Georges'
mind wanders. He pictures the hospital where
he was born and how it is probably no longer
standing. He sees the kids he played soccer
with crushed under a pile of broken buildings,


their faces now gray and caked with debris.
The pastor's lyrics of "Lean on Me" give
way to another wave of sniffles. Georges'
thoughts now pause on Monday, the day he
last spoke to his father, who had flown to Port-
au-Prince for his brother's wedding.
"Have a good trip," Georges told his father.
"I hope you have fun."
In the days .11. 11. ii the Jan. 12 earth-
quake that left thousands of people dead and
millions more displaced, Georges has not
given himself any time to let the gravity of the
situation sink in. There are meetings for newly
formed response clubs to attend, 5K races to
plan for and dozens more in need of a hug. No
time for reality. It didn't take long, however,
for reality to find him.

Sky Georges, a criminology senior at UF, poses in front of the Presidential Palace in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in September. Georges
traveled to Haiti on a mission trip to help after the January earthquake.


Like he had done throughout the past week,
Georges took center stage, this time at First As-
sembly of God in Gainesville. Just like all his
other speeches he gave that week - solemn,
yet hopeful - he speaks into the microphone
with a slow but firm cadence. The sentences
are like all the other ones spoken in the pre-
vious days, but this time something different
happens. A sudden rush begins to pull from
within. He pays it no mind and continues.
The pull becomes more powerful. It sparks
with every reference to God's love and heats
up with every gaze at the teary congregation.
Then comes a simple prayer of thanksgiving
in Creole that, although foreign to some, is un-
derstood by all in the pews.
"Jezi merci deske ou fidel nan tout bagay
mem nan trambleman t' "-Jesus, thank you,
because you are faithful even in earthquakes.
For the first time, in that span of several un-
certain days, Georges wept.

The Long Flight Home
Eight months have elapsed since the tec-
tonic plates budged underneath Haiti. The
streets, once strewn with the crushed bodies
of the young and old, are now alive with the
sounds of sputtering engines and shrill horns.
Survivors continue to rise at dawn to milk the
cows, feed the livestock and till a rough soil.
"Jezi merci deske ou fidel nan
tout bagay mem nan tramble-
man te (Jesus, thank you, be-
cause you are faithful even in
earthquakes)."
Sky Georges
UF senior

Yet there is more work to be done beyond
laying a few bricks or drilling a well that will
yield water without poisonous microbes. A
nation's identity must be bolstered. Faith and
hope can't feed swollen stomachs or fund the
education of children, many of whom cannot
afford the steep tuition of $10 USD, but it may
help spark a step toward resolution.
For the 12 people of First Assembly who
will make a five-day journey down to the
small Caribbean nation, this will be their mis-
sion. The success or failure of their trip won't
lie in how much they open their wallets but by
how much they open their hearts.
For the Rev. George Dumaine, a pastor at
First Assembly and the voice behind the mu-
sic at the January vigil, this will be a trip that
has been in the making for generations. His
ancestors, missionaries from Venezuela, came
to Haiti at the end of the 19th century where

Tennessee county jail gives new inmates old underwear


CLEVELAND, Tenn. (AP) - Bradley
County jail officials have been outfitting new
inmates with old underwear worn by other
prisoners, a practice they said is safe because
the clothing is thoroughly washed. Bradley
County Sheriff Jim Ruth talked about the
policy during a discussion with county com-
missioners Tuesday.
Sheriff's Department spokesman Bob
Gault told The Associated Press on Wednes-
day the jail has a longtime practice of issuing


everything incoming prisoners wear and said
the clothing is sanitized.
The Tennessee Corrections Institute in-
spects jails, and assistant director Peggy Saw-
yer said reissuing underwear is allowed. She
said her agency's rules also require that pris-
oner clothing be washed twice a week.
The Tennessee Department of Correction
gives inmates new underwear. Spokeswoman
Dorinda Carter said "when an inmate leaves,
his underwear leaves with him."

You need to invest in us so the Hai-
tian people can be self-sustaining."
For the American travelers, these
next four days will be all about in-
vestment. Aside from providing
Haitians with basic humanitarian
needs, they will also train teachers
to better educate students, instruct
natives on the nuances of business
in an effort to jump-start a morbid
economy and provide spiritual for-
mation and guidance that will help
them confront these tall tasks.
While teaching methods and
micro-loans can only go so far in a
short time, the Haitians' confidence
is far more advanced than any tech-
r .1.. especially among the youth.
"Here's a group of people who
have had every hardship thrown
their way and they're still laughing,
still telling jokes," Dumaine said.
"That says something about the Hai-
tian people."


Sky Georges (left) and George Dumaine pose in Delmas, Port-au-
Sky Georges (left) and George Dumaine pose in Delmas, Port-au-


Prince, in September.
But behind the smiles are stories
that no punchline can undo.
There's the one about the girl
who, during the earthquake, ran
aimlessly with her eyes shut, hop-
ing to be spared from a grave of dry-
wall and concrete. It was when she
opened her eyes that she noticed she
was covered in debris and drops of
blood from other bodies.
But for the children, these are sto-
ries from the past. Their focus is now
on building a "new" Haiti. Instead
of throwing around words such as
"rich," "wealth" and "power," they
talk, always in terms of "we," about
a country with a sanitation system
that will clean up the garbage swell-
ing in the streets, a water supply free
of E. coll and bacteria and a govern-
ment that will provide basic health
care to both the sick and healthy.
They want to be the ones to do it.
"How could I not like here?"
one boy told Georges when asked if
he liked Haiti and planned to stay.
"Haiti is my home."
Some, such as Dumaine, share
the natives' optimism.
"Haiti is not a lost cause," he says.
"The Haitian people have what it
takes to rebuild, and by the power of
God, they will be a success story."
Georges, however, remains un-
certain.

High on the Mountaintop
Tucked away behind a winding
streak of valleys and vegetation is
a place that doesn't get shown on
CNN. Here, craftsmen line the un-
paved dirt roads, whittling away on
slices of timber to the soundtrack of
singing tropical birds.
All these things pay homage to
the mountains. From its peaks, one
can clearly see the scars of destruc-
tion that cut through the raw earth.
These scars, however, are powerless
to the sea and sky that form the hori-
zon before Georges and Dumaine.


This, they realize, is a beautiful
country.
In less than 24 hours, they, along
with the others they came with, will
board a plane and leave for a place
far different than the one they have
lived in for the previous days.
Dumaine, whom the children
playfully referred to as "white'.. "
gained more than an understanding
of his family's roots. He has gained a
new family.
"It's a miracle to see how much
people love you," he said.
After a final meal laden with sto-
ries of the characters met during the
trip, Georges and Dumaine make
their way outside for a moment of
reflection. Standing across from their
house, they noticed, was a group of
neighborhood youth ranging from 6
to 25 years old.
"We will be here when you leave
tomorrow," they told their Ameri-
can friends. "When you go back,
please do not forget us."
They talk, mostly about light-
hearted subjects. Dumaine excuses
himself for a few minutes, only to
reappear with a guitar.
The chords begin to form a
rhythm, and the children begin to
bob and sway back and forth.
Dumaine plucks the strings as a
few voices begin to emerge, offer-
ing freestyle lyrics. The clapping
becomes louder. And then the lyrics
become one.
Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
(clap, clap) Open the eyes of my
heart (clap, clap) I want to see you
(clap, clap) I want to see you!
It was in those few seconds of
reverent melody that Sky found
what he had been seeking. Between
those notes was a sense of accep-
tance from two different walks of
life. The connection he had for so
long desired was alive.
The music had finally come back
to Haiti.

Students snub town hall forum


By WADE MILLWARD
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Dean of Students Office
and Student Government held
a town hall forum in the Reitz
Union auditorium on Wednes-
day night to discuss student con-
cerns and complaints on campus,
but something was missing.
No students showed up.
"Next time, we should sched-
ule a less confusing time that
doesn't conflict with Asian Kalei-
doscope Month," Student Body
President Ashton Charles said.


The meeting had been sched-
uled much farther in advance
than the Kaleidoscope Month
opening, which drew about 400
students and was held next door
in the Reitz Union Grand Ball-
room.
Instead of a town hall meet-
ing, SG members used the time
to discuss issues and areas where
the group should be focusing its
attention, such as extending the
Id.- i,.J Ii-._- for the drop-add policy
and improving relationships
between students who live on
campus and their Resident As-


sistants.
The group agreed that chang-
es should be made to the envi-
ronment of Preview.
"When you're there, it feels
like you're deciding the rest of
your life, which you're not,"
Charles said. "It's stressful. I've
seen girls, and even guys, crying
around me."
SG members discussed how
to better organize future town
hall meetings as well as potential
focuses, such as safety, identity,
civility, tolerance and transpor-
tation.

UF Assistant Vice President and Dean of Students Jen Day Shaw and UF Student Body President Ash-

Students celebrate


Asian culture month

By ALYSSA WANG
Alligator Contributing Writer

About 400 students got a little life lesson Wednesday
night about what it means to stand out.
The Asian Kaleidoscope Opening Ceremony in the Reitz
Union Grand Ballroom opened with a welcome speech from
Phillip Cheng, Asian Kaleidoscope Month executive direc-
tor.
He said the month-long celebration is meant to explore
the histories, cultures and contributions of Asians and Asian-
Americans.
Cheng said the purpose of this opening ceremony was to
serve as a grand kick-off of a new decade of Asian Kaleido-
scope months to come.
The theme of this year's Asian Kaleidoscope Month is
"Hold the Hyphen," which is meant to challenge the percep-
tion of "what it means to be hyphenated,"
according to Cheng.
The hyphen between the words Asian-
American demonstrates the inability for a
person to simply be American, he said.
Former NFL -....rll player Esera Tu-
aolo, who is Samoan but was raised in Ha-
waii, spoke about coming out of the closet.
Cheng Tuaolo was introduced and talked about
a situation he had faced a few minutes be-
fore walking onto the stage.
"I went back there to wait, and a gentleman there was
like, 'You're gay?' I said yes. He's like, 'You're a Christian?'
and I said yes," Tuaolo began.
"I just wanted to bring that up because before, I used to
run," Tuaolo said. "I used to have anxiety attacks and run
away from situations like that, but not anymore because
when you live in your truth you find your strength to stand
your ground."
Spoken word artist Alvin Lau also performed during the
second half of the opening ceremony.
Asian Kaleidoscope Month and New Student Programs
paid a combined total of about $10,000 for both acts.

SeaWorld negligent

in care
Shamu is shaking his head.
When a SeaWorld Orlando killer whale mysteriously
fell fatally ill Monday evening, her death became the
third killer whale death in just four months, and the 13th in
the past 14 years.
And that's not to mention the death of SeaWorld Orlan-
do's Dawn Brancheau in February when the 12,000-pound
Tilikum drowned his 40-year-old trainer.
And did we forget to mention Tilikum is also responsible
for the 1999 death of another man and one of three whales
responsible for killing another trainer in 1991 at Sealand of
the Pacific?
It's shameful of us amid our amusement-seeking bore-
dom, smitten between our Shamu bars and fanny packs, to
expect these marine behemoths to act as if everything were
just splendid when confining a six-ton whale to one of Sea-
World's swimming pools is comparable to confining a hu-
man to a bathtub its entire life.
Of course, our hearts go out to the families of those Sea-
World employees killed as a result of company negligence.
But, then again, why should anyone be surprised when a
killer whale attacks? It's kind of in the name.
The death of the 25-year-old killer whale Kalina on Mon-
day evening from a "sudden, mysterious" illness only further
demonstrates that humans are not and will never be capable
of properly caring and recreating a whale's natural habitat.
And as the Orlando-based amusement park faces its
toughest public scrutiny in its history, perhaps SeaWorld
should realize that if it truly cares for its animals it should let
its "family" swim free - in the oceans.



Westboro Baptist idiots


An unpopular Kansas
"church" reminiscent
of our very own Dove
wants you to know God is
your enemy.
As the Supreme Court
heard arguments Wednesday
in Snyder v. Phelps, the case
involving the ' ...rl: .... Bap-
tist Church's protests at sol-
diers' funerals (the "church"
says God is killing soldiers for
America's radical tolerance
of gay men and women), the
highest court in the land was
posed with a uniquely per-
sonal argument that could po-
tentially redefine Americans'
First Amendment rights.
Let's look at this objective-
ly, Gators.
We're not God, so we
won't speak for the Man Up-
stairs. We really hate when the
crazies do that. But we find it
hard to believe God "hates
fags," as this "church" says.
We find it hard to believe our
creator would kill soldiers left
and right because of some-
thing completely unrelated


as America loving its gay citi-
zens.
And we'll go so far as to
say the Westboro members,
particularly the pastor, Fred
Phelps, create nothing more
than the festering pile of en-
trails in which even most
staunchly conservative Amer-
icans want to see devoured by
parasites.
Forever marring a griev-
ing father's (Snyder) son's fu-
neral by protesting with such
heinously misguided signs is
despicable at best.
With that said, ruling in fa-
vor of Snyder and reinstating
a previous court's $5 million
retribution in a case where
free speech did not invoke
physical harm would be en-
tirely detrimental and con-
trary to our rights to speech.
We must remember, re-
gardless of how much ha-
tred we might harbor for a
misguided group of radicals,
their speech is just as impor-
tant as our ability to voice our
disdain for them.

Column

Consider this while
A s mid-October and the first hint of cool air creeps
into our city, students at the university find them-
selves already preparing for midterm exams.
Understandably, the mid-semester monotony can be-
come overwhelming. Classes seem to get repetitive, and it
seems harder and harder to convince yourself to make it to
that 7:25 a.m. lecture.
If the thought of only being halfway through the semes-
ter is bringing you down, allow me to offer some perspec-
tive and whimsical thoughts on the world to get your mind
off the monotony.
Class may seem to be dragging on, but society is pro-
gressing at an exponential rate.
Consider the fact that the Wright Brothers made their
maiden flight in 1903. It lasted all of 12 seconds. A mere 38
years later, planes were used to deliver bombs from Japan
in a devastating attack on Hawaii. Only 28 years after that,
humans landed on the moon.
It's difficult not to get distracted by our cell phones while
pretending to pay attention to the lecture. But consider that
the technology in your cell phone has greater computing
power within it than any of the , j-: .11. , missions did.
Speaking of space missions, America launched the Voy-
ager 1 into space 33 years ago, and by now it has traveled
almost 11 billion miles. Currently it resides somewhere in
the outer region of our solar system, and we are still able to
communicate with it via radio signals.
And yet, how often do we all lose cell phone service
when we walk out of class?
Do you ever accidentally touch the bottom of the desk
while in lecture and immediately have a strong urge to
wash your hands?
Interestingly, the human body contains anywhere from


fighting boredom
two to nine pounds of bacteria at any
given moment. Our body constantly
fights the massive presence of bac-
teria. At this point, your body has
probably had 10 thrillion mini battles
with bacteria, yet you have won each
Bryan Griffin of them as surely as you sit here and
letters@alligatororg read.
Hunger seems to hurt the most as
the last ten minutes of class shuffle by.
And when it comes to hunger and bacteria, we owe our
ability to properly digest lunch to a small bacterium called
E. coll. If one of these organisms were subjected to the prop-
er conditions and temperature, it could double in about 20
minutes. If this process persisted through the night, there
would be one million of them. If the process were allowed
to continue for a little less than three weeks, the bacteria
could cover the earth, in a few months be larger than earth
and in a few thousand years be larger than the known uni-
verse.
Fortunately, we are keeping these organisms' multipli-
cative tendencies in check.
Perhaps class isn't so bad after all. Hey, at least you are
alive. Fifty-four million of the planet's population will die
within the next year.
You are a unique, independent and highly complex or-
ganism. The actions you make daily might affect the future
in a profound way.
Class may drone on, but the universe is a fascinating
thing. Too bad the subject matter at hand isn't always as
entertaining.

Letters to the Editor
Marijuana is a God-given right
Sean Quinn is mistaken when suggesting
that Florida should decriminalize marijuana.
It's clearly time to completely re-legalize can-
nabis for responsible adults.
Another reason to stop punishing and per-
secuting citizens for using the relatively
safe, God-given plant that doesn't get men-
honed is because it is :,1:1,.:: 11 correct since
God indicates He created all the seed-bearing
plants, saying they're all good on literally the
first page (Genesis 1:11-12 and 29-30). The only
Biblical restriction placed on cannabis is that it
be accepted with thankfulness (see 1 Timothy
4:1-5). Ending cannabis prohibition is one of
the most important issues of our time.
Stan White
Dillon, Colo.



Decriminalizing marijuana a good idea
Sean Quinn's Wednesday column was
right on the money, and for those readers who
got that knee-jerk "Keep dreaming, stoner!"
reachtion,try to think rationally about the issue.
I do not use marijuana. But this doesn't
mean I'm blind to the problems and damages
caused by prohibition and ignorance.
We teach our kids in school that marijuana
is as bad as cocaine, heroin and methamphet-
amine by lumping these drugs together into
one ,ll- .11 -r - i
When kids try marijuana, they recognize
it is not a dangerous drug. Maybe the reason
why marijuana seems to be an alleged "gate-
way drug" is young people are discovering
the government has been actively lying to us
and not acting in our best interests by not pro-
viding transparent and clear information so
we may make informed decisions.
If you do not use marijuana and believe
you have no interest in this issue, think again.


Not only are your taxes putting your nonvio-
lent peers behind bars and out of jobs, you are
also paying the opportunity cost of redi-
recting the cash flow of marijuana sales from
law-abiding citizens and government and into
the pockets of drug dealers and cartels.
So let's drop the nuclear bomb and win this
drug war. Decriminalize marijuana.

Cycling accident reminds us of safety
Alfredo Kiernan's cycling accident with a
pedestrian on Stadium Road should remind
us that we all share our spaces.
Whether we are cyclists, pedestrians or
motorists, we all become obstacles and threats
whenwedon't ..11.. rl,.- :l 'orweactinnon-
predictable ways. This accident could have
been avoided if the pedestrian had walked in
the crosswalk.
Coming down the hill on Stadium Road, I
have a hard time stopping suddenly when the
stray pedestrian hops off the sidewalk without
looking. On my clumsy, slow hybrid, I'd be
lucky to hit 20 miles per hour. A cyclist
wouldn't be able to stop at all. So, I ride de-
fensively. When a pedestrian steps out into the
crosswalk, I have to anticipate where that pe-
destrian will be when I get there. Should I con-
tinue straight, slow down if possible, or veer? I
have to assume the pedestrian will continue to
walk. We all need to move predictably and de-
liberately. Cars need to signal turns and stop
before intersections, not over crosswalks. Cy-
clists need to ride in the proper bike lanes and
watch for errant pedestrians. Pedestrians need
to look and continue : I , i', when they step
into the road. If you stop like a deer in head-
lights, you might end up as road kill. No one
wants that. We all just want to get to home,


work, school or lunch safe and happy.

UF student



Reader supports pro-marijuana articles
I couldn't agree more with Sean Quinn's
Wednesday column. Alcohol is a far worse
drug than marijuana, and the fact that man-
juana is still illegal in most states and federally
is absolutely insane. I would love to see the
Alligator do an in-depth article on recent stud-
ies that have been done to support the idea of
marijuana being legal. I'm 30, and our gen-
eration, which is soon to be in power, largely
thinks marijuana is no big deal. And it isn't.
This is a college town where a lot of people
(not just students) smoke marijuana.I know
people would love to see more anti-marijua-
na-prohibition articles in your newspaper.
There's no doubt in my mind.

HR6156 good for Alachua families
Recently, Florida's child-welfare system
was given a 10-month extension to its Title
IV-E waiver -,II. , i,, organizations the flex-
ibility to use federal funds to serve children in
their own homes and reducing the number of
children in foster care.
In addition, the House of Representatives
unanimously passed bill HR 6156 last week,
authorizing all states to extend the waiver for
five years with a five-year renewal. It is now
time for the bill to go before the Senate, which,
if passed, would be a giant step in helping chil-
dren and families throughout the U.S.
Here, in north central Florida, the Title IV-E
waiver helps fund prevention and diversion


services to more than 1,000 families.
This enables agencies such as Partnership
for Strong Families to assist families they pre-
viously would have been unable to serve. Not
only does the Title IV-E waiver help to de-
crease the number of children in care through
the use of these programs, but it is part of a
statewide initiative to redesign Florida's foster
care system as a whole, creating more hope
for children and families. Research has shown
children who enter foster care are at greater
risk of juvenile delinquency, later mental
health problems, teenage pregnancy and have
an increased school dropout rate. The Title
IV-E waiver will give our staff the chance to
prevent these outcomes by providing family-
centered, strength-based services with the goal
of keeping the family safely together.
Just more than a year ago, Partnership for
Strong Families partnered with the Alachua
County Library District to open The Library
Partnership. This locally-based program aims
to provide preventative-care services to fami-
lies in Alachua County by offering central-
ized social services through a neighborhood
resource center combined with a full-service
public library branch. It is not uncommon to
see The Library Partnership filled with after-
school youth working on computers, a Girl
Scout troop meeting and supportive conver-
sations being held between patrons and staff.
These typesof partnerships wouldn't be as suc-
cessful if it weren't for the Title IV-E waiver.
At Partnership for Strong Families we
strive to keep families together by providing
family centered preventative and diversion
services. The bill will not only provide hope
for our children and families in Florida, but
it will provide hope for children and families
throughout the United States as they imple-
ment the same model of care we have proven
successful in our region.
Shawn Salamida
Partnership for Strong Families president

Today's question: What's your
favorite Bob Dylan song?


Bob Dylan to rock O'Connell Center


By JOEY FLECHAS
avenue staff writer

From folk troubadour to electric jester to ev-
er-touring elder statesman of rock 'n' roll, Bob
Dylan and his storied artistic career have filled
books, movies and varying levels of philosophi-
cal discussions for years.
Friday evening, Dylan is bringing his music
to Gainesville. It will be the fourth time in his
career that he has made a pit-stop in The Gator
Nation.
"He's the voice of a generation," said Kyle
Calhoun, chairman of Student Government
Productions, which organized the show.


In July, Calhoun was looking for an act ap-
propriate for a Friday before a home game, a
show that would bring generations together.
At first considering country acts, he caught
wind of Dylan's plans for a college tour.
After contacting Dylan's representatives and
learning that they were interested, Calhoun re-
alized the opportunity this would create.
"It's definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experi-
ence," he said.
Dylan, a native of Duluth, Minn., began
his musical career as a folk singer, modeling
his persona after Woody Guthrie and penning
topical songs that were eventually popularized
by Peter, Paul and Mary, The Byrds and Joan


Baez.
At the 1965 Newport Folk Festival, in New-
port, R.I., Dylan famously brought an electric
band to back him, simultaneously alienating
his folk-purist fan base and revolutionizing the
worth of songwriting in rock 'n' roll.
Since then, his legend has loomed larger
than almost any other story in rock. Dylan has
toured incessantly and released eight studio
albums since the early 1990s.
The fall tours coincide with the release of a
two-disc set of demos done for music publish-
ers in the early 1960s, "The Witmark Demos,"
and "Bob Dylan - The Original Mono Record-
ings," a box set of his first eight albums in their
original mono sound.
Dylan and his band will perform at the Ste-
phen C. O'Connell Center at 8 p.m. Doors open
at 7 p.m.


a) "Like a Rolling Stone"
b) "Mr. Tambourine Man"
c) "Blowin' in the Wind"

The moans that come from that end of

In "It's Kind of a Funny Story," which hits theaters Fri-

de-stress and rejuvenate after being overwhelmed by
teenage pressures and contemplating suicide. But in
this wannabe "Juno"-style story, in as unlikely a place
as a mental ward, he finds that companionship and
laughter are the perfect antidotes. Also starring: Zach

Local bands: under the influence
By MELINDA CARSTENSEN pletely enthralled with his music - but, I respect
avenue writer the guy ... I think he's one of the coolest, most
straight-forward dudes in spite of his success."


Musicians spanning across time - everyone
from rockers like the Rolling Stones to more cur-
rentfolk artists like Ray LaMontagne- have cited
influences by Bob Dylan. Here, some of Gaines-
ville's freshest talents sound off about the song-
writing giant and his contribution to music.

"My dad has always been a huge Bob Dylan
fan. There's a line in 'Positively 4th Street' that
my dad really likes and pointed outto me: 'I wish
that for just one day you could stand inside my
shoes. You'd know what a drag it is to see you.'...
I love that Dylan was the first person to be really
blunt, yet poetic, in his lyrics. That's what I try to
do now in my music. Our music is quite different,
but he's influenced my writing style."

and be the punk musician that tells you I'm com-


- Nick Sessions (bass/vocals) of Assassi-
nate the Scientist

"Definitely just listening to Bob Dylan really
helped me transition into being more open-mind-
ed about music and to blues influences as well.
He's changed the way I feel about performing-
the way I put my soul into it- because of his soul
and his attitude."
- Amy Lobasso (guitar/vocals) of The Bo-
swellians

"The big lesson that can be taken from Dy-
lan's work is that a song doesn't have to be com-
plicated or recorded perfectly to hit a chord with
the audience."

Play this: Avenue dream set list


By JOEY FLECHAS
avenue writer


Any Dylan set list is sure to please and dis-
appoint all over. Do you prefer "Blowin' in the
Wind" or "The Times They Are a-Changin'"?
"Like a Rolling Stone" has to be in there,
right? And what about some deep cuts, like
"If You See Her, Say Hello" or "Isis"?
Everyone has theirfavorites, but here's our
picks for the songs we hope to hear Friday.
"Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You"
Kick it off like you do on the fifth "Bootleg
Series" record, Bob. It may not be like it was
on the Rolling Thunder Revue, but the crowd
would love for you to stay here.
"Maggie's Farm"
It's the song he electrified for the first time
in 1965 at Newport. Only this time, no one
will be booing or threatening to ax the micro-
phone cable.


"The Times They Are a-Changin"'
A classic that young and old will know.
"I Want You"
The best love song he ever wrote.
"Tangled Up in Blue"
His winding treatise on divorce - and
some of the best phrases ever turned on
wax.
"Things Have Changed"
His AcademyAward-winningtune from the
soundtrack of the 2000 Michael Douglas ve-
hicle, "Wonder Boys."
"Mr. Tambourine Man"
There's a reason Hunter S. Thompson
wanted this song played as a cannon blasted
his ashes into the oblivion.
"Like a Rolling Stone"
This song shattered pop radio's 3-minute
barrier, introduced snarky beat poet witti-
cisms to the electric guitar and changed rock
music forever.


Bob Dylan's words of wisdom
By JOEY FLECHAS
avenue writer

So much has been made of Bob Dylan's songwriting When he put hand to typewriter (as he
liked to often do), his lyrics came out indelible, engrossing and timeless. Here's the Avenue's picks
for the killer lines that send Dylanologists into convulsions.


"How many roads must a man walk down/
Before you call him a man?"
- From "Blowin' in the Wind"
"I muttered somethingunderneath mybreath/
She studied the lines in my face/ I must admit
I felt a little uneasy/ When she bent down to
tie the laces of my shoe/ Tangled up in blue"
- From "Tangled Up in Blue"
"God said to Abraham, 'Kill me a son'/ Abe
says, 'Man, you must be putting' me on'/ God
say, 'No,' Abe say, 'What?'/ God say, 'You can


do what you want Abe but/ The next time you
see me coming' you better run.'"
- From "Highway 61 Revisited"
"'Equality,' I spoke the word/ As if a wedding
vow/ Ah, but I was so much older then/ I'm
younger than that now"
- From "My Back Pages"
"I see my light come shining/ From the west
unto to the east/ Any day now, any day now/ I
shall be released"
- From "I Shall be Released"


I was cursed out
By ANDREW GORDON
avenue guest columnist

Like he did in 1976 and then again in 1988,
English professor emeritus Andrew Gordon will
watch Bob Dylan take the stage on UF territory
on Friday. But years before he witnessed Dylan
rock The Gator Nation, he had a not-so-polite
run-in with the folk legend in the Big Apple.
"It was an evening in the fall of 1964. I was
on MacDougal Street in Greenwich Village in
Manhattan, and I stepped into a bar next to a
folk music club called the Kettle of Fish, strictly
to use the men's room. I was 19.
"... Inside it was dark, smokey, noisy and very
crowded. I navigated through the joint to the
rear, where there was a longtable filled with peo-
ple. Standing against the wall next to the table
were two guys. One burly, bearded man leaning
against the wall was the folk singer Dave Van
Ronk. The other I didn't recognize: a short, pale,


by Bob Dylan
skinny, hawk-nosed young guy in a plaid outfit...
He was very drunk ... [and] blocking the corridor
to the restrooms.
"'Excuse me,' I said. 'I'm tryingto get through
here.' Atthe interruption, he turned sharply from
Van Ronk and started to curse me, roundly and
very loudly. I edged past him.
"... As I was standing at the urinal, I had an
epiphany: That was Bob Dylan.
"I pondered what to say on the way out: 'Hey,
I love your music?' Or: 'I'm sorry, but you were
very rude to me just now when I was trying to
get to the men's room?' As I stepped out into the
corridor, I caught a glimpse of the crowd. Every-
one in the bar was busy with a drink and talking
to one another, their backs to Dylan. They were
playing it cool, doing the New York thing: studi-
ously ignoring the fact there was a celebrity in
the room.
"So I, too, did the New York thing. I walked out
of the bar, and I said nothing."

Happy birthday, Harn: 20 years of art and innovation


The museum celebrates the milestone this weekend a.


By MEG WAGNER
avenue contributing writer

Kerry Oliver-Smith remembers
her first day at the Samuel P. Harn
Museum of Art, 20 years ago.
She remembers being "in awe
of the stunning architecture" of
the building. She remembers Bud
Bishop, the museum's director
at the time, and his "mile-high
standards." She remembers just
how tidy the museum was: floors
sparkled, art hung at just the right
height and not a single particle of
dust could be found in the build-
ing.
"It was all so clean and perfect
and professional," Oliver-Smith
said.
Now the museum's curator of
contemporary art, Oliver-Smith be-


gan working at the Harn in 1990,
shortly before its grand opening, as
the curator of education.
As the Harn celebrates its 20th
birthday this year, she says the mu-
seum remains just as put-together
as it was in its infancy.
"Every day, I'm still blown away
by the quality of our museum," she
said.
The Harn Museum opened on
Sept. 22, 1990. The first exhibits
displayed included art of Papua
New Guinea, Pre-Columbian art
from Peru, and Columbia and Flori-
da paintings by Herman Herzog.
Just about everything about the
museum has grown.
When it opened, the building
consisted of 64,470 square feet of
space.
Now, thanks to several addi-


Courtesy ot the Harn
Museum-goers gather for the Harn groundbreaking in 1989.


tions, the museum spans more
than 82,470 square feet.
In 1990, the museum's perma-
nent collection consisted of 3,000
paintings, sculptures and other
items.
"Sometimes, museums can be
perceived as stuffg and elitist,
but there really is :- i -l
for everyone here."
Tami Wroath
museum's director of marketing
and relations


Today, the museum boasts
7,300 works of art. The staff has
doubled in size, growing from 25
to 50 members over the past 20
years.
"We've certainly expanded over
the years in the most tremendous
ways," said Tami Wroath, the mu-
seum's director of marketing and
public relations.
She said that through the years,
the Harn has tried to broaden its
audience to be as inclusive as pos-
sible. Hosting artwork from around
the world, ranging from Southeast
Asian to contemporary American
works, the Harn's collection is truly
broad, Wroath said.
"Sometimes, museums can be
perceived as stuffy and elitist, but
there really is something for every-
one here," she said.
In celebration of its 20th birth-
day, the Harn is hosting a weekend
worth of events.
Friday evening, patrons are in-
vited to "20 Candles: Come As You
Art!" a birthday party for the Harn.


Couilesy ol Ihe Ham
The Harn museum celebrates its 20th birthday this year.


Ticket packages are available
at tiered levels starting at $20, but
everyone attending will be treated
to cocktails, cupcakes and live mu-
sic.
All proceeds will help support
the museum and its exhibitions.
On Sunday, the Harn will contin-
ue its celebration with an afternoon


full of family-friendly activities.
From 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., visitors
can design birthday hats, decorate
cupcakes and race through the mu-
seum during a scavenger hunt.
Admission is free and open to
the public.

Pair of Gators ft
* BANGOURA AND FEDERHOFER LOST 8-6 IN
DOUBLES.

By STEPHEN SHEEHAN
Alligator Writer

After a solid showing Tuesday, Florida's duo of Sekou
Bangoura Jr. and Billy Federhofer lost in the final round
of doubles qualifying at the ITA All-American in Tulsa,
Okla.
The sophomores picked up two wins while playing
together for the first time, but lost their match against
California's Nick Andrews and Jonathan Dahan (8-6) on
Wednesday.
Despite the loss, coach Andy Jackson was encouraged
by their performances.
"They were very impressive for their first time togeth-
er," Jackson said. "They haven't even practiced together
as a team."
While Jackson described Bangoura as "one of the best
doubles players in college," he said Federhofer held his
own despite his inexperience.
"It opened my eyes to the level that Billy can play in
doubles," Jackson said.
The pair still needs work, though Jackson said they got
down early and played well to get back even, but the duo
played too conservative at the end of the match.
The last leg of the tournament begins Thursday, as se-
nior Alexandre Lacroix will compete in the singles main


ill in qualifying
draw and team with junior Nassim Slilam in doubles.
Jackson said the No. 9 Lacroix has a realistic shot at
winning the singles championship.
However, he said playing in the main draw is tough
because players have to win twice Thursday to move on
to the next round.
"It will be a shocking start to the tournament," Jack-
son said. "Seventy-five percent of the guys will be out by
[Thursday] night."
Lacroix also has to deal with the demand of playing in
doubles, something that requires good conditioning and
focus.
Jackson thinks it would be a long
shot for Lacroix to win both the singles
and doubles championships, but it
wouldn't be the first time one of Jack-
son's players has won both.
While coaching at Mississippi State
in 1992-1993, one of Jackson's players,
Daniel Courcol, was the singles cham-
Jackson pion in the ITA Nahtional Clay Court
and All-American Hardcourt Champi-
onships, and the doubles champion min the All-American
Championships and ITA National Indoor.
Lacroix hasn't dominated college tennis to that degree,
but he can still develop his doubles game and put on a
good showing, Jackson said.
"It's not hike he's the Gators -..rl: :II team of last year
where anything but undefeated is unacceptable," he
said.

Fleming is still trying to fine-tune her game, specifically

Several Gators said in the pre-
season they expected free safety
Will Hill to have a breakout year
after "rededicating himself" to the
team this summer.
But so far this season, coach Ur-
ban Meyer and defensive coordina-
tor Teryl Austin do not think the
junior is meeting his potential.
Hill, who missed Florida's
first two games when he "wasn't
ready to play," surrendered a long
touchdown pass in his season de-
but against Tennessee and missed
multiple tackles last week against
Alabama.
In three games, Hill has recorded
13 tackles (ninth on the team), has
broken up one pass and has forced
one fumble.
"He has the ability, really, to
be an impact-type player," Austin
said. "He's big, he has range, he
can tackle. He can do all the things
you want a safety to do, really all
the great safeties around here have
done. He hasn't taken that step. We
need him to take it."
Meyer and Austin said Hill
flashed potential during training
camp to suggest he would be one
of the team's top defensive players.
But since the season started, both
coaches have noticed a regression
in the safety's play.
"I'd say, for his ability level, he's
been average," Meyer said Mon-
day.
Austin took Hill aside for a pri-
vate talk recently, and he expects

Lee, meanwhile, is a traditional

Austin compared the duo to
Florida's own quarterbacks.
"It'd be like preparing for our

SEC FOOTBALL

UF concerned with SEC-best punt returned Peterson


By TYLER JETT
Alligator Staff Writer
tjett@alligator org

Special teams can often be
overlooked, even if a team is
struggling in that facet of the
game.
Florida's recent turnovers and
red-zone struggles have received
most of the attention this week
as fans recover from the team's
loss to Alabama. But coach Urban
Meyer said he is more concerned
with his team's punt coverage.
With the Crimson Tide already
ahead 10-0 early in the second
quarter Saturday, senior Chas
Henry booted a punt inside the
Alabama 20-yard line. But Tide re-
ceiver Julio Jones fielded the punt,
ran past redshirt freshman Chris
Guido and streaked down the left
sideline until Henry pushed him
out of bounds inside Florida ter-
ritory.
The 41-yard return set the
Alabama offense up with a short
field and, eight plays later, Florida
trailed 17-0.
"That was disappointing,"
Meyer said. "There was a lot of
disappointments in that game -
that might have been No. 1."
The coach said fans can expect
to see new players on the punt
team if porous coverage contin-
ues in practice. The unit does not
have time to recover, however.
Florida faces the best punt re-
turner in the Southeastern Con-


ference on Saturday in LSU's
Patrick Peterson, who leads the
SEC and ranks fourth in the na-
tion with an average punt return
of 16.6 yards.
Peterson has also brought two
punts back for touchdowns.
"That's absolutely the No. 1
concern of ' . .. r....rl: :II team right
now," Meyer said of containing
Peterson.
Since Meyer took over in 2005,
Florida's punt coverage has been
among the best in the nation, al-
lowing just north of four yards
per return in 61 chances. But, in
four returns this season, oppo-
nents are averaging 16.25 yards.

"[Peterson is] absolutely
the No. 1 concern of our
football team right now."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

In fact, Jones' return was the
longest against the Florida punt
team since Meyer became coach,
yielding almost twice as many
yards as the unit allowed all of
last season (21 yards on five re-
turns).
The second-longest return
since 2005? Twenty-one yards by
Kentucky's Randall Cobb two
weeks ago.
But with freshmen filling out
46 percent of the Gators' roster,
special teams struggles should


not be surprising. Meyer said ear-
her this season that a lack of focus
in that area is a sign of an inexpe-
rienced team.
On Jones' return, he said the
Gators did not "net" the ball, or
take proper lanes to converge at
the same spot (wherever Jones
happened to be running) to limit
the receiver's space to make cuts.
Until this season, Meyer has
been the team's unofficial special
teams coach. But, in light of the
health issues that nearly drove
him to retirement last December,
Meyer relinquished that role to
D.J. Durkin.
Meyer decided to maintain
control of one unit this year,
though: punt team.
And so it will be partially up to
his group to prevent LSU's offense
from receiving a gift-wrapped
scoring chance.
"We got to come out, we got
to wm field position," linebacker
Jon Bostic said. "That's one thing
coaches always stress. This week,
we got to get special teams right
to where we win the field-posi-
tion battle."
-,.r - : l ,, . , - , l asanyone
how important containing Peter-
son is. The linebacker first saw Pe-
terson run at a track meet before
college, when Bostic attended
Wellington High and Peterson
went to Pompano Ely High.
"I know the kid can run," Bos-
tic said.


LSU's Patrick Peterson has returned two punts for touchdowns this season
and is averaging 16.6 yards per punt return.

they mixed with the natives, made a home for their sons and daughters and built a church that still stands. Currently, Dumaine has hundreds of uncles, aunts, cousins and distant relatives living in Haiti, many of whom he only knows as passing names spoken by family. Yet for Dumaine, a UF graduate whose family refers to him as “the will not be one for family reunions. His work will leave him no time for visits. There are families without homes, children without food and some, possibly, without hope. “When the earthquake hit, I wasn’t concerned for my family because I knew people would look after them,” he said. “I was more concerned for the orphans and other people who didn’t have a family to look after them.” While the decision to go to Haiti and help his “other family” wasn’t a hard one, the preparation was another matter. Dumaine said he never doubted God’s existence in the face moments when he couldn’t help but ask what God had in store for Haiti. “It’s kind of like when a coach makes a call that you have no idea why he did and you’re left thinking to yourself ‘What’s the plan?’” he said. In the weeks leading up to the trip, Dumaine spent hours alone alone. His pleas were not so much for personal safety but for strength to provide a positive effect on the lives of Haitians. He did not want to be viewed as another American getting in the way. By the time he Dumaine has no doubt that where he is going is where he needs to be. “I’m trusting that the coach knows best,” he said. Sitting alongside Dumaine on the resident and one of the 12 aid workers. With a skin tone that would make Caribbean sun beams salivate and a “Leave it to Beaver” voice chipper and honed, Fandler looks more like a misplaced human macadamia nut than a missionary. Yet for the housewife and mother of three, Growing up, Fandler traveled to numerous Third World countries with her Christian missionary parents, encountering some of the bleakest conditions a person could live in. While girls her age picked out dresses for the winter formal, Fandler spent her time evangelizing in Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, where those living on $1 a day were considered “doing well.” “A lot of times it’s so overwhelming you don’t know how to be effective,” she recalled. “Your heart’s going to break even if you have the Lord in your heart—you have to be pretty dead inside for it not to.” One would think that having undergone those experiences at such a fragile age, and the prospect of raising three children under the age of seven, would be enough motivation to stay away from anywhere resembling the Third World. But, it didn’t take long for Fandler to know what she had to do. “I didn’t think I was being a good mother if I didn’t set an example for Instead of facing a litany of complaints and tantrums, her young family gave their blessing and more. “Mommy, take me with you. I want to go with you,” pleaded Fandler’s 6-year-old son Daniel. When she explained to him that a ravaged country festering with disorder wasn’t a place for little children, he quietly went to his room only to return a few minutes later with his arms full of toys and clothes. As the hours between Florida and Haiti passed, Dumaine and Fandler couldn’t help but feel a sense of anticipation at going to a new country. Georges had a different take. Having lived in Haiti until he was 12, Sky dreaded the thought of seeing his family’s homeland — his homeland — reduced to rubble. He heard the stories of families living in overcrowded, makeshift tents on the outskirts of cities and of children not going to school out of fear that roof and walls might cave in. “I kept telling myself ‘I’m not going to Haiti;’ I’m not ready for this,” he said. “How do I relate?” But there were children who needed him. These doubts, he told himself, were normal and would wash away once he saw the soccer games in the street and heard the traditional songs and dances that welcomed travelers at the airport. A clear sky and a busy airport carrying expensive luggage gave assurances that all was well. Yet as he walked through the winding hallways, Georges couldn’t shake the feeling that something was off. As he made his way for the door, it hit him—the songs never came. Things, he thought, are going to be different.Beaten but Never BrokenWhen a country has been subjected to a never-ending onslaught of poverty, natural disasters, famines and failed regimes, some argue that God chooses to conveniently get lost. In Haiti, it took Georges only a For the village of Meilleur, a community 45 minutes outside of day of holy obligation; it’s a day to celebrate life. Young children, who on any other day would be running in the streets with either no shirt or no pants, come to church wearing don’t. wooden pavilion — is God’s house. “God is there as hope,” Georges recalled. “He’s the certainty that things will change.” After the service, the Americans make the long journey by covered caravan into the capital city for a tour of the presidential palace. While the buildings grow taller as the caravan rumbles toward its desand fallen houses pancaked on top of each other betray any appearance of metropolitan life. billows in the breeze, the embodiment of a faulty system of Haitian government juxtaposed with a symbol of national pride that, with every whip of the wind, reverberates a heartbeat. As Georges and Dumaine make their way around the premises, they are approached by two professional beggars who poke and prod for change. Despite previous instructions, they cave in, giving them mints and whatever else jingles in their pockets. After witnessing this, nous Haitian who accompanies the Americans, pulls the two aside. “We’re not wanting money,” the pastor says. “We want development. You need to invest in us so the Haitian people can be self-sustaining.” For the American travelers, these next four days will be all about investment. Aside from providing Haitians with basic humanitarian needs, they will also train teachers to better educate students, instruct natives on the nuances of business in an effort to jump-start a morbid economy and provide spiritual for mation and guidance that will help them confront these tall tasks. While teaching methods and micro-loans can only go so far in a is far more advanced than any technology, especially among the youth. “Here’s a group of people who have had every hardship thrown their way and they’re still laughing, still telling jokes,” Dumaine said. “That says something about the Haitian people.” But behind the smiles are stories that no punchline can undo. There’s the one about the girl who, during the earthquake, ran aimlessly with her eyes shut, hoping to be spared from a grave of drywall and concrete. It was when she opened her eyes that she noticed she was covered in debris and drops of blood from other bodies. But for the children, these are stories from the past. Their focus is now on building a “new” Haiti. Instead of throwing around words such as “rich,” “wealth” and “power,” they talk, always in terms of “we,” about a country with a sanitation system that will clean up the garbage swelling in the streets, a water supply free of E. coli and bacteria and a government that will provide basic health care to both the sick and healthy. They want to be the ones to do it. “How could I not like here?” one boy told Georges when asked if he liked Haiti and planned to stay. “Haiti is my home.” Some, such as Dumaine, share the natives’ optimism. “Haiti is not a lost cause,” he says. “The Haitian people have what it takes to rebuild, and by the power of God, they will be a success story.” Georges, however, remains uncertain. High on the MountaintopTucked away behind a winding streak of valleys and vegetation is a place that doesn’t get shown on CNN. Here, craftsmen line the unpaved dirt roads, whittling away on slices of timber to the soundtrack of singing tropical birds. All these things pay homage to the mountains. From its peaks, one can clearly see the scars of destruction that cut through the raw earth. These scars, however, are powerless to the sea and sky that form the horizon before Georges and Dumaine. This, they realize, is a beautiful country. In less than 24 hours, they, along with the others they came with, will board a plane and leave for a place far different than the one they have lived in for the previous days. Dumaine, whom the children playfully referred to as “white boy,” gained more than an understanding of his family’s roots. He has gained a new family. “It’s a miracle to see how much people love you,” he said. ries of the characters met during the trip, Georges and Dumaine make their way outside for a moment of house, they noticed, was a group of neighborhood youth ranging from 6 to 25 years old. “We will be here when you leave tomorrow,” they told their American friends. “When you go back, please do not forget us.” They talk, mostly about lighthearted subjects. Dumaine excuses himself for a few minutes, only to reappear with a guitar. The chords begin to form a rhythm, and the children begin to bob and sway back and forth. Dumaine plucks the strings as a few voices begin to emerge, offer ing freestyle lyrics. The clapping becomes louder. And then the lyrics become one. Open the eyes of my heart, Lord (clap, clap) Open the eyes of my heart (clap, clap) I want to see you (clap, clap) I want to see you! It was in those few seconds of reverent melody that Sky found what he had been seeking. Between those notes was a sense of acceptance from two different walks of life. The connection he had for so long desired was alive. to Haiti. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2010Courtesy to the AlligatorSky Georges (center) hands out mints to children in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in September.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 7Letters to the EditorMarijuana is a God-given rightSean Quinn is mistaken when suggesting that Florida should decriminalize marijuana. It’s clearly time to completely re-legalize cannabis for responsible adults. Another reason to stop punishing and per secuting citizens for using the relatively safe, God-given plant that doesn’t get mentioned is because it is biblically correct since God indicates He created all the seed-bearing plants, saying they’re all good on literally the Biblical restriction placed on cannabis is that it the most important issues of our time. Stan White Dillon, Colo. Decriminalizing marijuana a good ideaSean Quinn’s Wednesday column was right on the money, and for those readers who got that knee-jerk “Keep dreaming, stoner!” reaction,try to think rationally about the issue. I do not use marijuana. But this doesn’t mean I’m blind to the problems and damages caused by prohibition and ignorance. We teach our kids in school that marijuana is as bad as cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine by lumping these drugs together into one collective evil. When kids try marijuana, they recognize it is not a dangerous drug. Maybe the reason why marijuana seems to be an alleged “gateway drug” is young people are discovering the government has been actively lying to us and not acting in our best interests by not providing transparent and clear information so we may make informed decisions. If you do not use marijuana and believe you have no interest in this issue, think again. Not only are your taxes putting your nonviolent peers behind bars and out of jobs, you are also paying the opportunity cost of redilaw-abiding citizens and government and into the pockets of drug dealers and cartels. So let’s drop the nuclear bomb and win this drug war. Decriminalize marijuana. David Williams 3EG Cycling accident reminds us of safetyAlfredo Kiernan’s cycling accident with a pedestrian on Stadium Road should remind us that we all share our spaces. Whether we are cyclists, pedestrians or motorists, we all become obstacles and threats when we don’t follow the law or we act in nonpredictable ways. This accident could have been avoided if the pedestrian had walked in the crosswalk. Coming down the hill on Stadium Road, I have a hard time stopping suddenly when the stray pedestrian hops off the sidewalk without looking. On my clumsy, slow hybrid, I’d be lucky to hit 20 miles per hour. A cyclist wouldn’t be able to stop at all. So, I ride defensively. When a pedestrian steps out into the crosswalk, I have to anticipate where that pedestrian will be when I get there. Should I continue straight, slow down if possible, or veer? I have to assume the pedestrian will continue to walk. We all need to move predictably and deliberately. Cars need to signal turns and stop before intersections, not over crosswalks. Cyclists need to ride in the proper bike lanes and watch for errant pedestrians. Pedestrians need to look and continue walking when they step into the road. If you stop like a deer in headlights, you might end up as road kill. No one wants that. We all just want to get to home, work, school or lunch safe and happy. Brenda Fields UF student Reader supports pro-marijuana articlesI couldn’t agree more with Sean Quinn’s Wednesday column. Alcohol is a far worse drug than marijuana, and the fact that marijuana is still illegal in most states and federally is absolutely insane. I would love to see the Alligator do an in-depth article on recent studies that have been done to support the idea of eration, which is soon to be in power, largely thinks marijuana is no big deal. And it isn’t. This is a college town where a lot of people people would love to see more anti-marijuana-prohibition articles in your newspaper. There’s no doubt in my mind. Josh Wickam Alligator reader HR6156 good for Alachua familiesRecently, Florida’s child-welfare system was given a 10-month extension to its Title ibility to use federal funds to serve children in their own homes and reducing the number of children in foster care. In addition, the House of Representatives authorizing all states to extend the waiver for time for the bill to go before the Senate, which, if passed, would be a giant step in helping children and families throughout the U.S. Here, in north central Florida, the Title IV-E waiver helps fund prevention and diversion services to more than 1,000 families. This enables agencies such as Partnership for Strong Families to assist families they previously would have been unable to serve. Not only does the Title IV-E waiver help to decrease the number of children in care through the use of these programs, but it is part of a statewide initiative to redesign Florida’s foster care system as a whole, creating more hope for children and families. Research has shown children who enter foster care are at greater risk of juvenile delinquency, later mental health problems, teenage pregnancy and have an increased school dropout rate. The Title IV-E waiver will give our staff the chance to prevent these outcomes by providing familycentered, strength-based services with the goal of keeping the family safely together. Just more than a year ago, Partnership for Strong Families partnered with the Alachua County Library District to open The Library Partnership. This locally-based program aims to provide preventative-care services to families in Alachua County by offering centralized social services through a neighborhood resource center combined with a full-service public library branch. It is not uncommon to school youth working on computers, a Girl Scout troop meeting and supportive conver sations being held between patrons and staff. These typesof partnerships wouldn’t be as successful if it weren’t for the Title IV-E waiver. At Partnership for Strong Families we strive to keep families together by providing family centered preventative and diversion services. The bill will not only provide hope for our children and families in Florida, but it will provide hope for children and families throughout the United States as they implement the same model of care we have proven successful in our region.

Dylan, a native of Duluth, Minn., began his musical career as a folk singer, modeling his persona after Woody Guthrie and penning topical songs that were eventually popularized by Peter, Paul and Mary, The Byrds and Joan Baez. At the 1965 Newport Folk Festival, in New port, R.I., Dylan famously brought an electric band to back him, simultaneously alienating his folk-purist fan base and revolutionizing the worth of songwriting in rock ‘n’ roll. Since then, his legend has loomed larger than almost any other story in rock. Dylan has toured incessantly and released eight studio albums since the early 1990s. The fall tours coincide with the release of a two-disc set of demos done for music publishers in the early 1960s, “The Witmark Demos,” and “Bob Dylan – The Original Mono Recordoriginal mono sound.

By ANDREW GORDON avenue guest columnist Like he did in 1976 and then again in 1988, English professor emeritus Andrew Gordon will watch Bob Dylan take the stage on UF territory on Friday. But years before he witnessed Dylan rock The Gator Nation, he had a not-so-polite run-in with the folk legend in the Big Apple. “It was an evening in the fall of 1964. I was on MacDougal Street in Greenwich Village in Manhattan, and I stepped into a bar next to a folk music club called the Kettle of Fish, strictly to use the men’s room. I was 19. “... Inside it was dark, smokey, noisy and very crowded. I navigated through the joint to the ple. Standing against the wall next to the table were two guys. One burly, bearded man leaning against the wall was the folk singer Dave Van Ronk. The other I didn’t recognize: a short, pale, He was very drunk ... [and] blocking the corridor to the restrooms. “‘Excuse me,’ I said. ‘I’m trying to get through here.’ At the interruption, he turned sharply from Van Ronk and started to curse me, roundly and very loudly. I edged past him. “... As I was standing at the urinal, I had an epiphany: That was Bob Dylan. “I pondered what to say on the way out: ‘Hey, I love your music?’ Or: ‘I’m sorry, but you were very rude to me just now when I was trying to get to the men’s room?’ As I stepped out into the corridor, I caught a glimpse of the crowd. Every one in the bar was busy with a drink and talking to one another, their backs to Dylan. They were playing it cool, doing the New York thing: studi ously ignoring the fact there was a celebrity in the room. “So I, too, did the New York thing. I walked out of the bar, and I said nothing.” thursday, october 7, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 11 10, ALLIGATOR thursday, october 7, 2010 By MELINDA CARSTENSEN avenue writer Musicians spanning across time — everyone from rockers like the Rolling Stones to more cur rent folk artists like Ray LaMontagne — have cited ville’s freshest talents sound off about the songwriting giant and his contribution to music. “My dad has always been a huge Bob Dylan fan.

Everything you need to know before the Bob Dylan show “How many roads must a man walk down/ Before you call him a man?”— From “Blowin’ in the Wind”“I muttered something underneath my breath/ She studied the lines in my face/ I must admit I felt a little uneasy/ When she bent down to tie the laces of my shoe/ Tangled up in blue”— From “Tangled Up in Blue”“God said to Abraham, ‘Kill me a son’/ Abe says, ‘Man, you must be puttin’ me on’/ God say, ‘No,’ Abe say, ‘What?’/ God say, ‘You can do what you want Abe but/ The next time you see me comin’ you better run.’”— From “Highway 61 Revisited”“‘Equality,’ I spoke the word/ As if a wedding vow/ Ah, but I was so much older then/ I’m younger than that now”— From “My Back Pages”“I see my light come shining/ From the west unto to the east/ Any day now, any day now/ I shall be released”— From “I Shall be Released”Bob Dylan’s words of wisdom By JOEY FLECHAS avenue writer Any Dylan set list is sure to please and disappoint all over. Do you prefer “Blowin’ in the Wind” or “The Times They Are a-Changin’”? “Like a Rolling Stone” has to be in there, right? And what about some deep cuts, like “If You See Her, Say Hello” or “Isis”? Everyone has their favorites, but here’s our picks for the songs we hope to hear Friday. “Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You” Series” record, Bob. It may not be like it was on the Rolling Thunder Revue, but the crowd would love for you to stay here. “Maggie’s Farm” in 1965 at Newport. Only this time, no one will be booing or threatening to ax the micro phone cable. “The Times They Are a-Changin’” A classic that young and old will know. “I Want You” The best love song he ever wrote. “Tangled Up in Blue” His winding treatise on divorce — and some of the best phrases ever turned on wax. “Things Have Changed” His Academy Award-winning tune from the soundtrack of the 2000 Michael Douglas ve hicle, “Wonder Boys.” “Mr. Tambourine Man” There’s a reason Hunter S. Thompson wanted this song played as a cannon blasted his ashes into the oblivion. “Like a Rolling Stone” This song shattered pop radio’s 3-minute barrier, introduced snarky beat poet witticisms to the electric guitar and changed rock music forever. Play this: Avenue dream set list I was cursed out by Bob Dylan

12, ALLIGATOR thursday, october 7, 2010Happy birthday, Harn: 20 years of art and innovationBy MEG WAGNER avenue contributing writer Kerry Oliver-Smith remembers her first day at the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art, 20 years ago. She remembers being “in awe of the stunning architecture” of the building. She remembers Bud Bishop, the museum’s director at the time, and his “mile-high standards.” She remembers just how tidy the museum was: floors sparkled, art hung at just the right height and not a single particle of dust could be found in the building. “It was all so clean and perfect and professional,” Oliver-Smith said. Now the museum’s curator of contemporary art, Oliver-Smith be gan working at the Harn in 1990, shortly before its grand opening, as the curator of education. As the Harn celebrates its 20th birthday this year, she says the mu seum remains just as put-together as it was in its infancy. “Every day, I’m still blown away by the quality of our museum,” she said. The Harn Museum opened on Sept. 22, 1990. The first exhibits displayed included art of Papua New Guinea, Pre-Columbian art from Peru, and Columbia and Florida paintings by Herman Herzog. Just about everything about the museum has grown. When it opened, the building consisted of 64,470 square feet of space. Now, thanks to several additions, the museum spans more than 82,470 square feet. In 1990, the museum’s permanent collection consisted of 3,000 paintings, sculptures and other items. Today, the museum boasts 7,300 works of art. The staff has doubled in size, growing from 25 to 50 members over the past 20 years. “We’ve certainly expanded over the years in the most tremendous ways,” said Tami Wroath, the mu seum’s director of marketing and public relations. She said that through the years, the Harn has tried to broaden its audience to be as inclusive as possible. Hosting artwork from around the world, ranging from Southeast Asian to contemporary American works, the Harn’s collection is truly broad, Wroath said. “Sometimes, museums can be perceived as stuffy and elitist, but there really is something for every one here,” she said. In celebration of its 20th birthday, the Harn is hosting a weekend worth of events. Friday evening, patrons are invited to “20 Candles: Come As You Art!” a birthday party for the Harn. Ticket packages are available at tiered levels starting at $20, but everyone attending will be treated to cocktails, cupcakes and live mu sic. All proceeds will help support the museum and its exhibitions. On Sunday, the Harn will continue its celebration with an afternoon full of family-friendly activities. From 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., visitors can design birthday hats, decorate cupcakes and race through the museum during a scavenger hunt. Admission is free and open to the public. For more information, visit harn. ufl.edu.Courtesy of the HarnThe Harn museum celebrates its 20th birthday this year.

18, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2010 against Penn State on Sept. 10, and she has recorded the eighth-most digs in the SEC with 163. However, her stats appears to have more to do with the fact that the No. 2 Gators rank second to last as a team in digs. “It’s a great story — she came here as a walk-on with very limited playing time and here she is starting for a top-10 team,” Wise said. Even though Fleming was a walk-on, her play suggested otherwise, according to Lauren Bledsoe. “Even when she was a walk-on — people kind of down that sometimes — she did really well,” Bledsoe said. “She should have been on a scholarship and we all knew that.” her eye sequencing, communication skills and serving. “I’m still learning,” Fleming said, “so that in December I’ll be ready in my position to help and contribute to the team as much as I can.” Fleming ranks eighth in the SEC in digs VOLLEYBALL, from page 19 BANGOURA AND FEDERHOFER LOST 8-6 IN DOUBLES.By STEPHEN SHEEHANAlligator Writer After a solid showing Tuesday, Florida’s duo of Sekou of doubles qualifying at the ITA All-American in Tulsa, Okla. The sophomores picked up two wins while playing California’s Nick Andrews and Jonathan Dahan (8-6) on Wednesday. Despite the loss, coach Andy Jackson was encouraged by their performances. er,” Jackson said. “They haven’t even practiced together as a team.” While Jackson described Bangoura as “one of the best doubles players in college,” he said Federhofer held his own despite his inexperience. “It opened my eyes to the level that Billy can play in doubles,” Jackson said. The pair still needs work, though Jackson said they got down early and played well to get back even, but the duo played too conservative at the end of the match. The last leg of the tournament begins Thursday, as senior Alexandre Lacroix will compete in the singles main draw and team with junior Nassim Slilam in doubles. Jackson said the No. 9 Lacroix has a realistic shot at winning the singles championship. However, he said playing in the main draw is tough because players have to win twice Thursday to move on to the next round. “It will be a shocking start to the tournament,” Jack[Thursday] night.” Lacroix also has to deal with the demand of playing in doubles, something that requires good conditioning and focus. Jackson thinks it would be a long shot for Lacroix to win both the singles and doubles championships, but it son’s players has won both. While coaching at Mississippi State in 1992-1993, one of Jackson’s players, Daniel Courcol, was the singles champion in the ITA National Clay Court and All-American Hardcourt Championships, and the doubles champion in the All-American Championships and ITA National Indoor. Lacroix hasn’t dominated college tennis to that degree, but he can still develop his doubles game and put on a good showing, Jackson said. “It’s not like he’s the Gators football team of last year where anything but undefeated is unacceptable,” he said.Pair of Gators fall in qualifyingJackson Vo lle yball

SportsTHURSDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org TEEING OFF WITH MIKE McCALL HE IS NINTH ON THE TEAM WITH 13 TACKLES.By TYLER JETTAlligator Staff Writertjett@alligator.org Several Gators said in the preseason they expected free safety Will Hill to have a breakout year after “rededicating himself” to the team this summer. But so far this season, coach Ur ban Meyer and defensive coordinator Teryl Austin do not think the junior is meeting his potential. Hill, who missed Florida’s ready to play,” surrendered a long touchdown pass in his season debut against Tennessee and missed multiple tackles last week against Alabama. In three games, Hill has recorded 13 tackles (ninth on the team), has broken up one pass and has forced one fumble. “He has the ability, really, to be an impact-type player,” Austin said. “He’s big, he has range, he can tackle. He can do all the things you want a safety to do, really all the great safeties around here have done. He hasn’t taken that step. We need him to take it.” Meyer and Austin said Hill camp to suggest he would be one of the team’s top defensive players. But since the season started, both coaches have noticed a regression in the safety’s play. “I’d say, for his ability level, he’s been average,” Meyer said Monday. Austin took Hill aside for a private talk recently, and he expects Hill to improve. Austin said the safety is playing well in practices, something that hasn’t translated to actual games, perhaps because he is more focused on not making mistakes than actually making plays. “Sometimes as a player you start pushing and pressing, wanting to make things perfect and make things right all the time,” Austin said. “That’s really not going to happen in this game.” Preparing for two QBs: The Gators’ defense has essentially game planned for two offenses this week while getting ready for Satur day’s meeting with LSU. While Jordan Jefferson has started every game this season for the No. 12 Tigers, backup Jarrett Lee has appeared in all but one contest. Jefferson poses a threat as a runner (189 rushing yards) but has struggled through the air, tossing six interceptions against two touchdowns. Lee, meanwhile, is a traditional pocket passer, throwing for 206 yards on 25 attempts. Austin compared the duo to Florida’s own quarterbacks. “It’d be like preparing for our guy — maybe John (Brantley) and then Trey (Burton) coming in the game,” Austin said. “You have a couple different things you have to be ready for, and so we’ve been working on both things this week.” Injury update: Meyer said running back Jeff Demps (sprained foot) will probably play this week despite practicing at full speed Tuesday. There was no update about how the junior fared Wednesday. Running back Mike Gillislee (bone bruise) has practiced at full speed this week, Meyer said. Gillislee was seen leaning on crutches in the second half against Alabama. Meyer added that the team’s starting offensive line is intact this week, and that Brantley (ribs) has practiced this week despite feeling sore. And while he is happy with punter Chas Henry’s performance er Caleb Sturgis (back) need not worry about losing his job. Henry goal attempts against Alabama. SEC FOOTBALL SCOREBOARDHarrison Diamond / Alligator Staff VOLLEYBALLBy MATT RUBINAlligator Writer Football players aren’t the only athletes who have to worry about getting knocked out of a game due to a concussion. Believe it or not, volleyball players get their fair share of head injuries as well. Take, for example, Florida senior libero Erin Fleming during the match against LSU on Friday. “I ended up diving for a ball and the speed took me over the top of my head,” Fleming said. “I hit it pretty good.” Fleming played the rest of the match, recording a match-high 20 digs. According to coach Mary Wise, Fleming appeared to have sustained a mild concussion. “They kept checking me during timeouts and making sure I could hear, could see everything, that my smells were alright, that I wasn’t feeling nauseous,” Fleming said. “After the game I took a couple tests and I was really on that gray line.” Fleming sat out the next day’s practice and took more tests in hopes of playing against Ar kansas on Sunday. Unfortunately for Fleming and the Gators, she didn’t meet the expectations team doctors and trainers hoped for. After sitting out her only match of the season, Fleming was cleared to practice Tuesday. And the senior is eager to start the second half of the season. “It’s exciting and kind of sad also that we’re halfway through,” Fleming said. “We’re playing great as a team and I’ve accepted my role and trying to do it the best I can.” Coming into the season, Fleming was given the responsibility of replacing former UF libero Elyse Cusack. Cusack ended her career as the Southeastern Conference’s all-time digs leader with 2,138 — not an easy player to replace by someone who had never played the position. played in that left-back position,” Wise said. “Previously she played right side early on in her career. It’s a whole new position for her.” Fleming recorded a career-high 21 digs SEE VOLLEYBALL, P AGE 18 MLB Texas 5 Tampa Bay 1 Cincinatti 0 Philadelphia 4 Wise

20, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2010 Courtesy of LSU Sports InformationLSU’s Patrick Peterson has returned two punts for touchdowns this season and is averaging 16.6 yards per punt return. SEC FOOTBALLBy TYLER JETTAlligator Staff Writertjett@alligator.org Special teams can often be overlooked, even if a team is struggling in that facet of the game. Florida’s recent turnovers and red-zone struggles have received most of the attention this week as fans recover from the team’s loss to Alabama. But coach Urban Meyer said he is more concerned with his team’s punt coverage. With the Crimson Tide already ahead 10-0 early in the second quarter Saturday, senior Chas Henry booted a punt inside the Alabama 20-yard line. But Tide reran past redshirt freshman Chris Guido and streaked down the left sideline until Henry pushed him out of bounds inside Florida ter ritory. The 41-yard return set the Alabama offense up with a short trailed 17-0. “That was disappointing,” Meyer said. “There was a lot of disappointments in that game — that might have been No. 1.” The coach said fans can expect to see new players on the punt team if porous coverage continues in practice. The unit does not have time to recover, however. Florida faces the best punt returner in the Southeastern Conference on Saturday in LSU’s Patrick Peterson, who leads the SEC and ranks fourth in the nation with an average punt return of 16.6 yards. Peterson has also brought two punts back for touchdowns. “That’s absolutely the No. 1 concern of our football team right now,” Meyer said of containing Peterson. Since Meyer took over in 2005, Florida’s punt coverage has been among the best in the nation, allowing just north of four yards per return in 61 chances. But, in four returns this season, opponents are averaging 16.25 yards. In fact, Jones’ return was the longest against the Florida punt team since Meyer became coach, yielding almost twice as many yards as the unit allowed all of turns). The second-longest return since 2005? Twenty-one yards by Kentucky’s Randall Cobb two weeks ago. 46 percent of the Gators’ roster, special teams struggles should not be surprising. Meyer said ear lier this season that a lack of focus in that area is a sign of an inexperienced team. On Jones’ return, he said the Gators did not “net” the ball, or take proper lanes to converge at the same spot (wherever Jones happened to be running) to limit the receiver’s space to make cuts. Until this season, Meyer has teams coach. But, in light of the health issues that nearly drove him to retirement last December, Meyer relinquished that role to D.J. Durkin. Meyer decided to maintain control of one unit this year, though: punt team. And so it will be partially up to his group to prevent LSU’s offense from receiving a gift-wrapped scoring chance. “We got to come out, we got Jon Bostic said. “That’s one thing coaches always stress. This week, we got to get special teams right tion battle.” Bostic knows as well as anyone how important containing Peter terson run at a track meet before college, when Bostic attended Wellington High and Peterson went to Pompano Ely High. “I know the kid can run,” Bostic said.UF concerned with SEC-best punt returner Peterson “[Peterson is] absolutely the No. 1 concern of our football team right now.”Urban Meyer UF football coach

Pruner Alligator Staff Writer cpruner@a Iligator org magine a world where all hopes, feelings and emotions are irrelevant. Hot and cold are just lukewarm. Colors are turned into a gray muddle, and conversations are nothing more than a stnng of words. In the days following a winter earthquake that jolted the island of Haili, this has become Sky Georges' world. Two Worlds. One Heart. No Answers Standing before a crowd of 400 at a vigil on an uncharacteristically warm night in January, Georges, a criminology senior at UF, is no longer who he was a week ago. In the span of a few sunrises and sunsets, he has become a breathing shadow -barely recognizable. As a pastor drones on about the need for hope in a time of great darkness, Georges' mind wanders. He pictures the hospital where he was born and how it is probably no longer standing. He sees the kids he played soccer with crushed under a pile of broken buildings, of God their faces now gray and caked with debris. The pastor's lyrics of "Lean on Me" give way to another wave of sniffles. Georges' thoughts now pause on Monday, the day he last spoke to his father, who had flown to Portau-Prince for his brother's wedding. "Have a good trip," Georges told his father. "I hope you have fun." In the days following the Jan. 12 earthquake that left thousands of people dead and millions more displaced, Georges has not given himself any lime to let the gravity of the situation sink in. There are meetings for newly formed response clubs to attend, 5K races to plan for and dozens more in need of a hug. No lime for reality. It didn't take long, however, for reality to find him. -4,' 7r7P 0~5' &m Courtesy to the Alligator Sky Georges, a criminology senior at UF, poses in front of the Presidential Palace in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in September. Georges traveled to Haiti on a mission trip to help after the January earthquake. Like he had done throughout the past week, Georges took center stage, this lime at First Assembly of God in Gainesville. Just like all his other speeches he gave that week -solemn, yet hopeful -he speaks into the microphone with a slow but firm cadence. The sentences are like all the other ones spoken in the previous days, but this time something different happens. A sudden rush begins to pull from within. He pays it no mind and continues. The pull becomes more powerful. It sparks with every reference to God's love and heats up with every gaze at the teary congregation. Then comes a simple prayer of thanksgiving in Creole that, although foreign to some, is understood by all in the pews. "Jezi merci deske ou fidel nan tout bagay mem nan trambleman t& "-Jesus, thank you, because you are faithful even in earthquakes. For the first lime, in that span of several uncertain days, Georges wept. The Long Flight Home Eight months have elapsed since the tectonic plates budged underneath Haiti. The streets, once strewn with the crushed bodies of the young and old, are now alive with the sounds of sputtering engines and shrill horns. Survivors continue to rise at dawn to milk the cows, feed the livestock and till a rough soil. "Jezi merei deske oufidel nan tout bagay mem nan trambleman t? (Jesus, thank you, because you are faithful even in earthquakes)." Sky Georges UF senior Yet there is more work to be done beyond laying a few bricks or drilling a well that will yield water without poisonous microbes. A nation's identity must be bolstered. Faith and hope can't feed swollen stomachs or fund the education of children, many of whom cannot afford the steep tuition of $10 USD, but it may help spark a step toward resolution. For the 12 people of First Assembly who will make a five-day journey down to the small Caribbean nation, this will be their mission. The success or failure of their trip won't lie in how much they open their wallets but by how much they open their hearts. For the Rev. George Dumaine, a pastor at First Assembly and the voice behind the music at the January vigil, this will be a trip that has been in the making for generations.

(AP) -Bradley County jail officials have been outfitting new inmates with old underwear worn by other prisoners, a practice they said is safe because the clothing is thoroughly washed. Bradley County Sheriff Jim Ruth talked about the policy during a discussion with county commissioners Tuesday. Sheriff's Department spokesman Bob Gault told The Associated Press on Wednesday the jail has a longtime practice of issuing everything incoming prisoners wear and said the clothing is sanitized. The Tennessee Corrections Institute inspects jails, and assistant director Peggy Sawyer said reissuing underwear is allowed. She said her agency's rules also require that prisoner clothing be washed twice a week. The Tennessee Department of Correction gives inmates new underwear.

4, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, OCTOBER 7,2010 Five-day journey leads to closure HAITI, from page 1 they mixed with the natives, made a home for their sons and daughters and built a church that still stands. Currently, Dumaine has hundreds of uncles, aunts, cousins and distant relatives living in Haiti, many of whom he only knows as passing names spoken by family. Yet for Dumaine, a UF graduate whose family refers to him as "the little American," his first trip to Haiti will not be one for family reunions. His work will leave him no time for visits. There are families without homes, children without food and some, possibly, without hope. "When the earthquake hit, I wasn't concerned for my family because I knew people would look after them," he said. "I was more concerned for the orphans and other people who didn't have a family to look after them." While the decision to go to Haiti and help his "other family" wasn't a hard one, the preparation was another matter. Dumaine said he never doubted God's existence in the face of tragedy but still faced difficult moments when he couldn't help but ask what God had in store for Haiti. "It's kind of like when a coach makes a call that you have no idea why he did and you're left thinking to yourself 'What's the plan?"' he said. In the weeks leading up to the trip, Dumaine spent hours alone reflecting on scripture and praying alone. His pleas were not so much for personal safety but for strength to provide a positive effect on the lives of Haitians. He did not want to be viewed as another American getting in the way. By the time he boards his flight to Port-au-Prince, Dumaine has no doubt that where he is going is where he needs to be. "I'm trusting that the coach knows best," he said. Sitting alongside Dumaine on the flight is Sarah Fandler, a Gainesville resident and one of the 12 aid workers. With a skin tone that would make Caribbean sun beams salivate and a "Leave it to Beaver" voice chipper and honed, Fandler looks more like a misplaced human macadamia nut than a missionary. Yet for the housewife and mother of three, there is no one more qualified to go. Growing up, Fandler traveled to numerous Third World countries with her Christian missionary parents, encountering some of the bleakest conditions a person could live in. While girls her age picked out dresses for the winter formal, Fandler spent her time evangelizing in Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, where those living on $1 a day were considered "doing well." "A lot of times it's so overwhelming you don't know how to be effective," she recalled. "Your heart's going to break even if you have the Lord in your heart-you have to be pretty dead inside for it not to." One would think that having undergone those experiences at such a fragile age, and the prospect of raising three children under the age of seven, would be enough motivation to stay away from anywhere resembling the Third World. But, it didn't take long for Fandler to know what she had to do. "I didn't think I was being a good mother if I didn't set an example for my children of sacrificing to others." Instead of facing a litany of complaints and tantrums, her young family gave their blessing and more. "Mommy, take me with you. I want to go with you," pleaded Fandler's 6-year-old son Darnel. When she explained to him that a ravaged country festering with disorder wasn't a place for little children, he quietly went to his room only to return a few minutes later with his arms full of toys and clothes. As the hours between Florida and Haiti passed, Dumaine and Fandler couldn't help but feel a sense of anticipation at going to a new country. Georges had a different take. Having lived in Haiti until he was 12, Sky dreaded the thought of seeing his family's homeland -his homeland -reduced to rubble. He heard the stories of families living in overcrowded, makeshift tents on the outskirts of cities and of children not going to school out of fear that roof and walls might cave in. "I kept telling myself 'I'm not going to Haiti;' I'm not ready for this," he said. "How do I relate?" But there were children who needed him. These doubts, he told himself, were normal and would wash away once he saw the soccer games in the street and heard the traditional songs and dances that welcomed travelers at the airport. Sky Georges (center) hands out mints to children in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in September. A clear sky and a busy airport filled with men in business suits carrying expensive luggage gave assurances that all was well. Yet as he walked through the winding hallways, Georges couldn't shake the feeling that something was off. As he made his way for the door, it hit him-the songs never came. Things, he thought, are going to be different. Beaten but Never Broken When a country has been subjected to a never-ending onslaught of poverty, natural disasters, famines and failed regimes, some argue that God chooses to conveniently get lost. In Haiti, it took Georges only a day to find Him. For the village of Meilleur, a commurty 45 minutes outside of Port-au-Prince, Sunday is not just a day of holy obligation; its a day to celebrate life. Young children, who on any other day would be running in the streets with either no shirt or no pants, come to church wearing sharp black suits. Some fit, but most don't. This -any other day a glorified wooden pavilion -is God's house. "God is there as hope," Georges recalled. "He's the certainty that things will change." After the service, the Americans make the long journey by covered caravan into the capital city for a tour of the presidential palace. While the buildings grow taller as the caravan rumbles toward its destination, rows of overflowing tents and fallen houses pancaked on top of each other betray any appearance of metropolitan life. In the distance, a tall Haitian flag billows in the breeze, the embodiment of a faulty system of Haitian government juxtaposed with a symbol of national pride that, with every whip of the wind, reverberates a heartbeat. As Georges and Dumaine make their way around the premises, they are approached by two professional beggars who poke and prod for change. Despite previous instructions, they cave in, giving them mints and whatever else jingles in their pockets. After witnessing this, Pastor Samuel Lucien, an indigenous Haitian who accompares the Americans, pulls the two aside. "We're not wanting money," the pastor says. "We want development. You need to invest in us so the Haitian people can be self-sustaining." For the American travelers, these next four days will be all about investment. Aside from providing Haitians with basic humanitarian needs, they will also train teachers to better educate students, instruct natives on the nuances of business in an effort to jump-start a morbid economy and provide spiritual formation and guidance that will help them confront these tall tasks. While teaching methods and micro-loans can only go so far in a short time, the Haitians' confidence is far more advanced than any technology, especially among the youth. "Here's a group of people who have had every hardship thrown their way and they're still laughing, still telling jokes," Dumaine said. "That says something about the Haitian people." Courtesy to the Alligator Sky Georges (left) and George Dumaine pose in Delmas, Port-auPrince, in September. But behind the smiles are stories that no punchline can undo. There's the one about the girl who, during the earthquake, ran aimlessly with her eyes shut, hoping to be spared from a grave of drywall and concrete. It was when she opened her eyes that she noticed she was covered in debris and drops of blood from other bodies. But for the children, these are stories from the past. Their focus is now on building a "new" Haiti. Instead of throwing around words such as "rich," "wealth" and "power," they talk, always in terms of "we," about a country with a sanitation system that will clean up the garbage swelling in the streets, a water supply free of E. coli and bacteria and a government that will provide basic health care to both the sick and healthy. They want to be the ones to do it. "How could I not like here?" one boy told Georges when asked if he liked Haiti and planned to stay. "Haiti is my home." Some, such as Dumaine, share the natives' optimism. "Haiti is not a lost cause," he says. "The Haitian people have what it takes to rebuild, and by the power of God, they will be a success story." Georges, however, remains uncertain. High on the Mountaintop Tucked away behind a winding streak of valleys and vegetation is a place that doesn't get shown on CNN. Here, craftsmen line the unpaved dirt roads, whittling away on slices of timber to the soundtrack of singing tropical birds. All these things pay homage to the mountains. From its peaks, one can clearly see the scars of destruction that cut through the raw earth. These scars, however, are powerless to the sea and sky that form the horizon before Georges and Dumaine. This, they realize, is a beautiful country. In less than 24 hours, they, along with the others they came with, will board a plane and leave for a place far different than the one they have lived in for the previous days. Dumaine, whom the children playfully referred to as "white boy," gained more than an understanding of his family's roots. He has gained a new family. "It's a miracle to see how much people love you," he said. After a final meal laden with stories of the characters met during the trip, Georges and Dumaine make their way outside for a moment of reflection. Standing across from their house, they noticed, was a group of neighborhood youth ranging from 6 to 25 years old. "We will be here when you leave tomorrow," they told their American friends. "When you go back, please do not forget us." They talk, mostly about lighthearted subjects. Dumaine excuses himself for a few minutes, only to reappear with a guitar. The chords begin to form a rhythm, and the children begin to bob and sway back and forth. Dumaine plucks the strings as a few voices begin to emerge, offering freestyle lyrics. The clapping becomes louder. And then the lyrics become one. Open the eyes of my heart, Lord (clap, clap) Open the eyes of my heart (clap, clap) I want to see you (clap, clap) I want to see you! It was in those few seconds of reverent melody that Sky found what he had been seeking. Between those notes was a sense of acceptance from two different walks of life. The connection he had for so long desired was alive. The music had finally come back to Haiti.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2010 0 ALLIGATOR, 5 Students snub town hall forum By WADE MILLWARD Alligator Contributing Writer The Dean of Students Office and Student Government held a town hall forum in the Reitz Union auditorium on Wednesday night to discuss student concerns and complaints on campus, but something was missing. No students showed up. "Next time, we should schedule a less confusing time that doesn't conflict with Asian Kaleidoscope Month," Student Body President Ashton Charles said. The meeting had been scheduled much farther in advance than the Kaleidoscope Month opening, which drew about 400 students and was held next door in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom. Instead of a town hall meeting, SG members used the time to discuss issues and areas where the group should be focusing its attention, such as extending the deadline for the drop-add policy and improving relationships between students who live on campus and their Resident Assistants. The group agreed that changes should be made to the environment of Preview. "When you're there, it feels like you're deciding the rest of your life, which you're not," Charles said. "It's stressful. I've seen girls, and even guys, crying around me." SG members discussed how to better organize future town hall meetings as well as potential focuses, such as safety, identity, civility, tolerance and transportation. Steven H.

The Asian Kaleidoscope Opening Ceremony in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom opened with a welcome speech from Phillip Cheng, Asian Kaleidoscope Month executive director. He said the month-long celebration is meant to explore the histories, cultures and contributions of Asians and AsianAmericans. Cheng said the purpose of this opening ceremony was to serve as a grand kick-off of a new decade of Asian Kaleidoscope months to come. The theme of this year's Asian Kaleidoscope Month is "Hold the Hyphen," which is meant to challenge the perception of "what it means to be hyphenated," according to Cheng. The hyphen between the words AsianAmerican demonstrates the inability for a person to simply be American, he said. Former NFL football player Esera Tuaolo, who is Samoan but was raised in Hawaii, spoke about coming out of the closet. Cheng Tuaolo was introduced and talked about a situation he had faced a few minutes before walking onto the stage. "I went back there to wait, and a gentleman there was like, 'You're gay?' I said yes. He's like, 'You're a Christian?' and I said yes," Tuaolo began. "I just wanted to bring that up because before, I used to run," Tuaolo said. "I used to have anxiety attacks and run away from situations like that, but not anymore because when you live in your truth you find your strength to stand your ground." Spoken word artist Alvin Lau also performed during the second half of the opening ceremony. Asian Kaleidoscope Month and New Student Programs paid a combined total of about $10,000 for both acts.

And did we forget to mention Tilikum is also responsible for the 1999 death of another man and one of three whales responsible for killing another trainer in 1991 at Sealand of the Pacific? It's shameful of us amid our amusement-seeking boredom, smitten between our Shamu bars and fanny packs, to expect these marine behemoths to act as if everything were just splendid when confining a six-ton whale to one of SeaWorld's swimming pools is comparable to confining a human to a bathtub its entire life. Of course, our hearts go out to the families of those SeaWorld employees killed as a result of company negligence. But, then again, why should anyone be surprised when a killer whale attacks? It's kind of in the name. The death of the 25-year-old killer whale Kalina on Monday evening from a "sudden, mysterious" illness only further demonstrates that humans are not and will never be capable of properly caring and recreating a whale's natural habitat. And as the Orlando-based amusement park faces its toughest public scrutiny in its history, perhaps SeaWorld should realize that if it truly cares for its animals it should let its "family" swim free -in the oceans. Westboro Baptist idiots A unpopular Kansas "church" reminiscent of our very own Dove wants you to know God is your enemy. As the Supreme Court heard arguments Wednesday in Snyder v. Phelps, the case involving the Westboro Baptist Church's protests at soldiers' funerals (the "church" says God is killing soldiers for America's radical tolerance of gay men and women), the highest court in the land was posed with a uniquely personal argument that could potentially redefine Americans' First Amendment rights. Let's look at this objectively, Gators. We're not God, so we won't speak for the Man Upstairs. We really hate when the crazies do that. But we find it hard to believe God "hates fags," as this "church" says. We find it hard to believe our creator would kill soldiers left and right because of something completely unrelated as America loving its gay citizens. And we'll go so far as to say the Westboro members, particularly the pastor, Fred Phelps, create nothing more than the festering pile of entrails in which even most staunchly conservative Americans want to see devoured by parasites. Forever marring a grieving father's (Snyder) son's funeral by protesting with such heinously misguided signs is despicable at best. With that said, ruling in favor of Snyder and reinstating a previous court's 55 million retribution in a case where free speech did not invoke physical harm would be entirely detrimental and contrary to our rights to speech. We must remember, regardless of how much hatred we might harbor for a misguided group of radicals, their speech is just as important as our ability to voice our disdain for them. a l l e independent fo rida Emily Fuggetta EDITOR Paul Runnestrand Stefania Ferro MANAGING EDITORS Jared Misner OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must include the author's name, classification and phone number Names wiii be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105 W University A or send them to PO Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

Bryan Griffin of them as surely as you sit here and Ietters@alligatororg II Mhe thou1-ghtL Of only being halfwvay thrFough Mhe semester is bringing you down, allow me to offer some perspective and whimsical thoughts on the world to get your mind off the monotony. Class may seem to be dragging on, but society is progressing at an exponental rate. Consider the fact that the Wright Brothers made their maiden flight in 1903. It lasted all of 12 seconds. A mere 38 years later, planes were used to deliver bombs from Japan in a devastating attack on Hawaii. Only 28 years after that, humans landed on the moon. It's difficult not to get distracted by our cell phones while pretending to pay attention to the lecture. But consider that the technology in your cell phone has greater computing power within it than any of the Apollo missions did. Speaking of space missions, America launched the Voyager 1 into space 33 years ago, and by now it has traveled almost 11 billion miles. Currently it resides somewhere in the outer region of our solar system, and we are still able to communicate with it via radio signals. And yet, how often do we all lose cell phone service when we walk out of class? Do you ever accidentally touch the bottom of the desk while in lecture and immediately have a strong urge to wash your hands? Interestingly, the human body contains anywhere from read. Hunger seems to hurt the most as the last ten minutes of class shuffle by. And when it comes to hunger and bacteria, we owe our ability to properly digest lunch to a small bactenum called E. coli. If one of these organisms were subjected to the proper conditions and temperature, it could double in about 20 minutes. If this process persisted through the night, there would be one million of them. If the process were allowed to continue for a little less than three weeks, the bacteria could cover the earth, in a few months be larger than earth and in a few thousand years be larger than the known universe. Fortunately, we are keeping these organisms' multiplicative tendencies in check. Perhaps class isn't so bad after all. Hey, at least you are alive. Fifty-four million of the planet's population will die within the next year. You are a unique, independent and highly complex organism. The actions you make daily might affect the future in a profound way. Class may drone on, but the universe is a fascinating thing. Too bad the subject matter at hand isn't always as entertaining.

Marijuana is a God-given right Sean Quinn is mistaken when suggesting that Florida should decriminalize marijuana. It's clearly time to completely re-legalize cannabis for responsible adults. Another reason to stop punishing and persecuting citizens for using the relatively safe, God-given plant that doesn't get mentioned is because it is biblically correct since God indicates He created all the seed-bearing plants, saying they're all good on literally the first page (Genesis 1:11-12 and 29-30). The only Biblical restriction placed on cannabis is that it be accepted with thankfulness (see 1 Timothy 4:1-5). Ending cannabis prohibition is one of the most important issues of our time. Stan White Dillon, Co/o. Decriminalizing marijuana a good idea Sean Quinn's Wednesday column was right on the money, and for those readers who got that knee-jerk "Keep dreaming, stoner!" reaction,try to think rationally about the issue. I do not use marijuana. But this doesn't mean I'm blind to the problems and damages caused by prohibition and ignorance. We teach our kids in school that marijuana is as bad as cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine by lumping these drugs together into one collective evil. When kids try marijuana, they recognize it is not a dangerous drug. Maybe the reason why marijuana seems to be an alleged "gateway drug" is young people are discovering the government has been actively lying to us and not acting in our best interests by not providing transparent and clear information so we may make informed decisions. If you do not use marijuana and believe you have no interest in this issue, think again. Not only are your taxes putting your nonviolent peers behind bars and out of jobs, you are also paying the opportunity cost of redirecting the cash flow of marijuana sales from law-abiding citizens and government and into the pockets of drug dealers and cartels. So let's drop the nuclear bomb and win this drug war. Decriminalize marijuana. David Williams 3EG Cycling accident reminds us of safety Alfredo Kiernan's cycling accident with a pedestrian on Stadium Road should remind us that we all share our spaces. Whether we are cyclists, pedestrians or motorists, we all become obstacles and threats whenwe don't follow the law or we act in nonpredictable ways. This accident could have been avoided if the pedestrian had walked in the crosswalk. Coming down the hill on Stadium Road, I have a hard time stopping suddenly when the stray pedestrian hops off the sidewalk without looking. On my clumsy, slow hybnd, I'd be lucky to hit 20 miles per hour. A cyclist wouldn't be able to stop at all. So, I ride defensively. When a pedestrian steps out into the crosswalk, I have to anticipate where that pedestrian will be when I get there. Should I continue straight, slow down if possible, or veer? I have to assume the pedestrian will continue to walk. We all need to move predictably and deliberately. Cars need to signal turns and stop before intersections, not over crosswalks. Cyclists need to ride in the proper bike lanes and watch for errant pedestrians. Pedestrians need to look and continue walking when they step into the road. If you stop like a deer in headlights, you might end up as road kill. No one wants that. We all just want to get to home, work, school or lunch safe anc U U Reader supports pro-marij I couldn't agree more wit Wednesday column.

By JOEY FLECHAS avenue staff writer From folk troubadour to electric jester to ever-touring elder statesman of rock 'n' roll, Bob Dylan and his storied artistic career have filled books, movies and varying levels of philosophical discussions for years. Friday evening, Dylan is bringing his music to Gainesville. It will be the fourth time in his career that he has made a pit-stop in The Gator Nation. "He's the voice of a generation," said Kyle Calhoun, chairman of Student Government Productions, which organized the show. In July, Calhoun was looking for an act appropriate for a Friday before a home game, a show that would bring generations together. At first considering country acts, he caught wind of Dylan's plans for a college tour. After contacting Dylan's representatives and learning that they were interested, Calhoun realized the opportunity this would create. "It's definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience," he said. Dylan, a native of Duluth, Minn., began his musical career as a folk singer, modeling his persona after Woody Guthrie and penning topical songs that were eventually popularized by Peter, Paul and Mary, The Byrds and Joan Baez. At the 1965 Newport Folk Festival, in Newport, R.I., Dylan famously brought an electric band to back him, simultaneously alienating his folk-purist fan base and revolutionizing the worth of songwriting in rock 'n' roll. Since then, his legend has loomed larger than almost any other story in rock. Dylan has toured incessantly and released eight studio albums since the early 1990s. The fall tours coincide with the release of a two-disc set of demos done for music publishers in the early 1960s, "The Witmark Demos," and "Bob Dylan -The Original Mono Recordings," a box set of his first eight albums in their original mono sound. Dylan and his band will perform at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. "I encourage those that live in glass houses to throw stones.

thursday, october 7, 2010 *ALLIGATOR, 9 sex and the swamp ra Caught in a bad romance Dear Jared, Recently, one of my roommates has been seeing someone who, quite frankly, scares the shit out of my other roommate and me. He comes in at odd hours, has the creepy slasher-movie vocals and a Columbine stare. I'm contacting you because they have sex so loud the walls shake like we're in a war zone. The moans that come from that end of the hall can only be described as the kind Charles Manson must have had during his orgies. I'd talk to her about it directly, but she tells him everything. What do I do if my roommate has a psycho friend with benefits? Sincerely, Not Wanting to be the Chick from "Psycho" olumbine glare aside, it sounds like your roommate is having a bang-up good time. Walls shaking? War zone-style foxholes? All that's missing is a couple of Geneva Convention violations, and we've got ourselves a pa rty. I'm sensing, though, your reasons for Jared Misner Columnist writing a letter might not be out of jealousy of their Operation Panty Freedom that you're missing out on but rather genuine concern this Hitchcock creep with a flair for wall-shattering screams might unleash some serious Sharon Tate action on your ass. And having that awkward headboard-rocking squealing in ecstasy, asssmacking mantra night after night when you're just trying to study pre-calc in the living room can be a tad irritating. This might be something your roommate and you have to combine forces and risk Manson-esque stab wounds to confront your roommate. No one likes the awkward ass smacks anyway.

Musicians spanning across time -everyone from rockers like the Rolling Stones to more currentfolk artists like Ray LaMontagnehave cited influences by Bob Dylan. Here, some of Gainesville's freshest talents sound off about the songwriting giant and his contribution to music. "My dad has always been a huge Bob Dylan fan. There's a line in 'Positively 4th Street' that my dad really likes and pointed out to me: 'I wish that for just one day you could stand inside my shoes. You'd know what a drag it is to see you.' I love that Dylan was the first person to be really blunt, yet poetic, in his lyrics. That's what I try to do now in my music. Our music is quite different, but he's influenced my writing style." -Janna Pele (vocals/keys) of Janna Pele & the Half Steps "I can honestly say -and I'm not going to try and be the punk musician that tells you I'm comNick Sessions (bass/vocals) of Assassinate the Scientist "Definitely just listening to Bob Dylan really helped me transition into being more open-minded about music and to blues influences as well. He's changed the way I feel about performing the way I put my soul into itbecause of his soul and his attitude." -Amy Lobasso (guitar/vocals) of The Boswellians "The big lesson that can be taken from DyIan's work is that a song doesn't have to be complicated or recorded perfectly to hit a chord with the audience." Collin Whitlock (keyboard/vocals) of Cassette Alligator writer Alexander Klausner contributed to this article. Play this: Avenue dream set list By JOEY FLECHAS avenue writer Any Dylan set list is sure to please and disappoint all over. Do you prefer "Blowin' in the Wind" or "The Times They Are a-Changin"'? "Like a Rolling Stone" has to be in there, right? And what about some deep cuts, like "If You See Her, Say Hello" or "Isis"? Everyone has theirfavorites, but here's our picks for the songs we hope to hear Friday. "Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You" Kick it off like you do on the fifth "Bootleg Series" record, Bob. It may not be like it was on the Rolling Thunder Revue, but the crowd would love for you to stay here. "Maggie's Farm" It's the song he electrified for the firsttime in 1965 at Newport. Only this time, no one will be booing or threatening to ax the microphone cable. "The Times They Are a-Changin"' A classic that young and old will know. "I Want You" The best love song he ever wrote. "Tangled Up in Blue" His winding treatise on divorce -and some of the best phrases ever turned on wax. "Things Have Changed" His Academy Award-winningtune from the soundtrack of the 2000 Michael Douglas vehicle, "Wonder Boys." "Mr. Tambourine Man" There's a reason Hunter S. Thompson wanted this song played as a cannon blasted his ashes into the oblivion. "Like a Rolling Stone" This song shattered pop radio's 3-minute barrier, introduced snarky beat poet witticisms to the electric guitar and changed rock music forever. Bob Dylan's words of wisdom By JOEY FLECHAS avenue writer So much has been made of Bob Dylan's songwriting When he put hand to typewriter (as he liked to often do), his lyrics came out indelible, engrossing and timeless. Here's the Avenue's picks for the killer lines that send Dylanologists into convulsions. "How many roads must a man walk down/ Before you call him a man?" -From "Blowin' in the Wind" I muttered somethingunderneath mybreath/ She studied the lines in myface/ I must admit I felt a little uneasy/ When she bent down to tie the laces of my shoe/ Tangled up in blue" -From "Tangled Up in Blue" God said to Abraham, 'Kill me a son'/ Abe says, Man, you must be puttin' me on'/ God say, No,' Abe say, 'What?'/ God say, You can do what you want Abe but/ The next time you see me coming' you better run."' -From "Highway 61 Revisited" "Equality,' I spoke the word/ As if a wedding vow/ Ah, but I was so much older then/ I'm younger than that now" -From "My Back Pages" "I see my light come shining/ From the west unto to the east/ Any day now, any day now/ I shall be released" -From "I Shall be Released" I was cursed out By ANDREW GORDON avenue guest columnist Like he did in 1976 and then again in 1988, English professor emeritus Andrew Gordon will watch Bob Dylan take the stage on UF territory on Friday. But years before he witnessed Dylan rock The Gator Nation, he had a not-so-polite run-in with the folk legend in the Big Apple. "It was an evening in the fall of 1964. I was on MacDougal Street in Greenwich Village in Manhattan, and I stepped into a bar next to a folk music club called the Kettle of Fish, strictly to use the men's room. I was 19. ". Inside it was dark, smokey, noisy and very crowded. I navigated through the joint to the rear, where there was a longtable filled with people. Standing against the wall next to the table were two guys. One burly, bearded man leaning against the wall was the folk singer Dave Van Ronk. The other I didn't recognize: a short, pale, by Bob Dylan skinny, hawk-nosed young guy in a plaid outfit He was very drunk .[and] blocking the corridor to the restrooms. "'Excuse me,' I said. 'I'm trying to get through here.' Atthe interruption, he turned sharplyfrom Van Ronk and started to curse me, roundly and very loudly. I edged past him. ". As I was standing at the urinal, I had an epiphany: That was Bob Dylan. "I pondered what to say on the way out: 'Hey, I love your music?' Or: 'I'm sorry, but you were very rude to me just now when I was trying to get to the men's room?' As I stepped out into the corridor, I caught a glimpse of the crowd. Everyone in the bar was busy with a drink and talking to one another, their backs to Dylan. They were playing it cool, doing the New York thing: studiously ignoring the fact there was a celebrity in the room. "Sol1, too, did the NewYork thing. I walked out of the bar, and I said nothing."

12, ALLIGATOR thursday, october 7, 2010 Happy birthday, Harn: 20 years of art and innovation The museum celebrates the milestone this weekend By MEG WAGNER avenue contributing writer Kerry Oliver-Smith remembers her first day at the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art, 20 years ago. She remembers being "in awe of the stunning architecture" of the building. She remembers Bud Bishop, the museum's director at the time, and his "mile-high standards." She remembers just how tidy the museum was: floors sparkled, art hung at just the right height and not a single particle of dust could be found in the building. "It was all so clean and perfect and professional," Oliver-Smith said. Now the museum's curator of contemporary art, Oliver-Smith began working at the Harn in 1990, shortly before its grand opening, as the curator of education. As the Harn celebrates its 20th birthday this year, she says the museum remains just as put-together as it was in its infancy. "Every day, I'm still blown away by the quality of our museum," she said. The Harn Museum opened on Sept. 22, 1990. The first exhibits displayed included art of Papua New Guinea, Pre-Columbian art from Peru, and Columbia and Florida paintings by Herman Herzog. Just about everything about the museum has grown. When it opened, the building consisted of 64,470 square feet of space. Now, thanks to several addiCourtesy of the Harn Museum-goers gather for the Harn groundbreaking in 1989. tions, the museum spans more than 82,470 square feet. In 1990, the museum's permanent collection consisted of 3,000 paintings, sculptures and other items. "Sometimes, museums can be perceived as &Muffg and gziit, but there really is omithing for evzrgonw here." Tami Wroath museum's director of marketing and relations Today, the museum boasts 7,300 works of art. The staff has doubled in size, growing from 25 to 50 members over the past 20 years. "We've certainly expanded over the years in the most tremendous ways," said Tami Wroath, the museum's director of marketing and public relations. She said that through the years, the Harn has tried to broaden its audience to be as inclusive as possible. Hosting artwork from around the world, ranging from Southeast Asian to contemporary American works, the Harn's collection is truly broad, Wroath said. "Sometimes, museums can be perceived as stuffy and elitist, but there really is something for everyone here," she said. In celebration of its 20th birthday, the Harn is hosting a weekend worth of events. Friday evening, patrons are invited to "20 Candles: Come As You Art!" a birthday party for the Harn. Courtesy of the Harn The Harn museum celebrates its 20th birthday this year. Ticket packages are available at tiered levels starting at $20, but everyone attending will be treated to cocktails, cupcakes and live music. All proceeds will help support the museum and its exhibitions. On Sunday, the Harn will continue its celebration with an afternoon full of family-friendly activities. From 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., visitors can design birthday hats, decorate cupcakes and race through the museum during a scavenger hunt. Admission is free and open to the public.

18, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, OCTOBER 7,2010 Pair of Gators fir BANGOURA AND FEDERHOFER LOST 8-6 IN DOUBLES. By STEPHEN SHEEHAN Alligator Writer After a solid showing Tuesday, Florida's duo of Sekou Bangoura Jr. and Billy Federhofer lost in the final round of doubles qualifying at the ITA All-American in Tulsa, Okla. The sophomores picked up two wins while playing together for the first time, but lost their match against California's Nick Andrews and Jonathan Dahan (8-6) on Wednesday. Despite the loss, coach Andy Jackson was encouraged by their performances. "They were very impressive for their first time together," Jackson said. "They haven't even practiced together as a team." While Jackson described Bangoura as "one of the best doubles players in college," he said Federhofer held his own despite his inexperience. "It opened my eyes to the level that Billy can play in doubles," Jackson said. The pair still needs work, though Jackson said they got down early and played well to get back even, but the duo played too conservative at the end of the match. The last leg of the tournament begins Thursday, as senior Alexandre Lacroix will compete in the singles main ill in qualifying draw and team with junior Nassim Slilam in doubles. Jackson said the No. 9 Lacroix has a realistic shot at winning the singles championship. However, he said playing in the main draw is tough because players have to win twice Thursday to move on to the next round. "It will be a shocking start to the tournament," Jackson said. "Seventy-five percent of the guys will be out by [Thursday] night." Lacroix also has to deal with the demand of playing in doubles, something that requires good conditioning and focus. Jackson thinks it would be a long shot for Lacroix to win both the singles and doubles championships, but it wouldn't be the first time one of Jackson's players has won both. While coaching at Mississippi State in 1992-1993, one of Jackson's players, Daniel Courcol, was the singles chamJackson pion in the ITA National Clay Court and All-American Hardcourt Championships, and the doubles champion in the All-American Championships and ITA National Indoor. Lacroix hasn't dominated college tennis to that degree, but he can still develop his doubles game and put on a good showing, Jackson said. "It's not like he's the Gators football team of last year where anything but undefeated is unacceptable," he said.

However, her stats appears to have more to do with the fact that the No. 2 Gators rank second to last as a team in digs. "It's a great story -she came here as a walk-on with very limited playing lime and here she is starting for a top-10 team," Wise said. her Even though Fleming was a walk-on, her play suggested otherwise, according to Volleyba II Lauren Bledsoe. "Even when she was a walk-on -people kind of down that sometimes -she did really well," Bledsoe said. "She should have been on a scholarship and we all knew that." Fleming is still trying to fine-tune her game, specifically her eye sequencing, communication skills and serving. "I'm still learning," Fleming said, "so that in December I'll be ready in my position to help and contribute to the team as much as I can."

But so far this season, coach Urban Meyer and defensive coordinator Teryl Austin do not think the junior is meeting his potential. Hill, who missed Flonda's first two games when he "wasn't ready to play," surrendered a long touchdown pass in his season debut against Tennessee and missed multiple tackles last week against Alabama. In three games, Hill has recorded 13 tackles (ninth on the team), has broken up one pass and has forced one fumble. "He has the ability, really, to be an impact-type player," Austin said. "He's big, he has range, he can tackle. He can do all the things you want a safety to do, really all the great safeties around here have done. He hasn't taken that step. We need him to take it." Meyer and Austin said Hill flashed potential during training camp to suggest he would be one of the team's top defensive players. But since the season started, both coaches have noticed a regression in the safety's play. "I'd say, for his ability level, he's been average," Meyer said Monday. Austin took Hill aside for a pnvate talk recently, and he expects UF safety Will Hill missed the first two games of the season because he "wasn't ready to play." In three games since then, he has broken up one pass and forced one fumble. citations week while getting ready for Saturday's meeting with LSU. While Jordan Jefferson has started every game this season for the No. 12 Tigers, backup Jarrett Lee has appeared in all but one contest. Jefferson poses a threat as a runner (189 rushing yards) but has struggled through the air, tossing six interceptions against two touchdowns. Lee, meanwhile, is a traditional pocket passer, throwing for 206 yards on 25 attempts. Austin compared the duo to Florida's own quarterbacks. "It'd be like prepanng for our guy -maybe John (Brantley) and then Trey (Burton) coming in the game," Austin said. "You have a couple different things you have to be ready for, and so we've been working on both things this week." Injury update: Meyer said running back Jeff Demps (sprained foot) will probably play this week despite practicing at full speed Tuesday. There was no update about how the junior fared Wednesday. Running back Mike Gillislee (bone bruise) has practiced at full speed this week, Meyer said. Gillislee was seen leaning on crutches in the second half against Alabama. Meyer added that the team's starting offensive line is intact this week, and that Brantley (ribs) has practiced this week despite feeling sore. And while he is happy with punter Chas Henry's performance during field goals, Meyer said kicker Caleb Sturgis (back) need not worry about losing his job.

20, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, OCTOBER 7,2010 SEC FOOTBALL UF concerned with SEC-best punt returner Peterson By TYLER JETT Alligator Staff Writer tjett@a Iligator org Special teams can often be overlooked, even if a team is struggling in that facet of the game. Florida's recent turnovers and red-zone struggles have received most of the attention this week as fans recover from the team's loss to Alabama. But coach Urban Meyer said he is more concerned with his team's punt coverage. With the Crimson Tide already ahead 10-0 early in the second quarter Saturday, senior Chas Henry booted a punt inside the Alabama 20-yard line. But Tide receiver Julio Jones fielded the punt, ran past redshirt freshman Chris Guido and streaked down the left sideline until Henry pushed him out of bounds inside Florida territory. The 41-yard return set the Alabama offense up with a short field and, eight plays later, Florida trailed 17-0. "That was disappointing," Meyer said. "There was a lot of disappointments in that game that might have been No. 1." The coach said fans can expect to see new players on the punt team if porous coverage continues in practice. The unit does not have time to recover, however. Florida faces the best punt returner in the Southeastern Conference on Saturday in LSU's Patrick Peterson, who leads the SEC and ranks fourth in the nation with an average punt return of 16.6 yards. Peterson has also brought two punts back for touchdowns. "That's absolutely the No. 1 concern of our football team right now," Meyer said of containing Peterson. Since Meyer took over in 2005, Florida's punt coverage has been among the best in the nation, allowing just north of four yards per return in 61 chances. But, in four returns this season, opponents are averaging 16.25 yards. "[Peterson is] absolutely the No. 1 concern of our football team right now." Urban Meyer UF football coach In fact, Jones' return was the longest against the Florida punt team since Meyer became coach, yielding almost twice as many yards as the unit allowed all of last season (21 yards on five returns). The second-longest return since 2005? Twenty-one yards by Kentucky's Randall Cobb two weeks ago. But with freshmen filling out 46 percent of the Gators' roster, special teams struggles should not be surprising. Meyer said earlier this season that a lack of focus in that area is a sign of an inexperienced team. On Jones' return, he said the Gators did not "net" the ball, or take proper lanes to converge at the same spot (wherever Jones happened to be running) to limit the receiver's space to make cuts. Until this season, Meyer has been the team's unofficial special teams coach. But, in light of the health issues that nearly drove him to retirement last December, Meyer relinquished that role to D.J. Durkin. Meyer decided to maintain control of one unit this year, though: punt team. And so it will be partially up to his group to prevent LSU's offense from receiving a gift-wrapped scoring chance. "We got to come out, we got to win field position," linebacker Jon Bostic said. "That's one thing coaches always stress. This week, we got to get special teams right to where we win the field-position battle." Bostic knows as well as anyone how important containing Peterson is. The linebacker first saw Peterson run at a track meet before college, when Bostic attended Wellington High and Peterson went to Pompano Ely High. "I know the kid can run," Bostic said.
