A Gainesville woman and former UF student was arrested Tuesday on a charge of aggravated child abuse after being accused of smothering a 10-month-old child she was babysitting with a pillow. According to the arrest report, the babys mother came home early from work and saw Tiffany Long, 21, of 6029 NW 53rd Terrace, holding a pillow over the babys face.The mother told police she saw her babys legs Police said that when confronted by the mother, Long threw the pillow, put up her hands and asked her not to call the police Long told police the baby was crying uncontrollably, and she was playing peek-aboo to quiet her down. Long later said, she never got a chance to play peek-a-boo. Long withdrew from UF in the fall. She was being held at the Alachua County Jail Wednesday in lieu of $35,000 bail. JOEY FLECHAS Thunder storms 93/75FORECAST 2 CLASSIFIEDS 12 CROSSWORD 17 Alex Catalano / AlligatorWindow Pains By JASMINE EARLSAlligator Contributing Writer Free parking downtown could become a thing of the past if a proposal from the City of Gainesville is approved by the Gainesville City Commission later this year. The Downtown Parking Study, released by the City of Gainesville earlier this week, proposes the elimination of 77 available free parking spaces downtown to discourage employees from taking convenient spaces and encourage motorists to use downtown garages. Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa said changing public perceptions about the downtown parking situation is just as important as improving the availability of parking spaces. People perceive that there is no parking downtown, so they dont come, or they get frustrated when they come and dont see any parking, Mastrodicasa said. If you ride downtown at nine in the morning and look at all the free spaces, youll see that most are already even open yet. Whats happening is the employees at downtown businesses are taking the spots and not the patrons. When employees occupy convenient parking slots close to local shops, theres nowhere nearby for shoppers to park, and the businesses suffer, she said. The idea is that we get employees to park further out and free up all the convenient spots in front of with free parking downtown On Campu s SEE PARKING, PAGE 5By ALEXANDER KLAUSNERAlligator Staff Writer The UF Student Senate stood united on every bill that came before it Tuesday night, approving each bill unanimously. One of the approved bills was a revision of the Student Governments 800 codes, was authored by Treasurer T.J. Villamil. The vote was delayed twice, prompting Villamil to host a public forum to discuss the changes. As it is a vote on the codes, the bill must be approved a second time and changes can still be made. The revisions to the bill are intended to dent organizations. SG is facing a budget shortfall of about $1 million, Villamil said. [The 800 codes are] putting everyone on the same page and making it consistent and fair, he said. Villamil is seeking to reduce personal ties as opposed to putting money toward a group. This is student money, and it shouldnt be expended in the wrong way, he said. It as possible. For example, he wanted to eliminate the funding of student travel. However, he said, after hearing from graduate students who value travel over things like bounce houses on the North Lawn, he balked. Despite the unanimous vote the codes received in Senate, they dont necessarily have everyones support. Villamil has said on numerous occasions handbook to the codes. However, combining the documents adds some vague language to the laws language that functions as guidelines rather than hard-and-fast laws. The guidelines are meant to allow leeway in certain situations, such as when a student requesting funding misses the deadline for paperwork and misses out on funding. Villamil has said twice in Senate meetings he views the codes themselves as guidelines, a term with which Senate Minority Leader Gillian Leytham takes issue. Im not quite sure what universe he is living in, she wrote in a letter to the Alligator. but under our UF Constitution, the 800 of permanent effect.

By ESTEE BECKAlligator Writer Gainesville residents sounded off on how Floridas districts should be shaped in the coming years at the Santa Fe College Fine Arts Hall on Wednesday. lic redistricting meetings in northeast and north central Florida, aimed to give residents a chance to share their opinions on the issue of redrawing the states political boundaries, which are redrawn every 10 years right after the U. S. Census. The purpose of redrawing a states congressional, Senate and House boundaries is to keep an equal number of the population in each district, in turn giving each state resident equal congressional representation. However, some are skeptical that boundary lines are drawn to favor certain political parties and to protect incumbents. Manny Lucoff, a Gainesville resident and UF alumnus, believes such practices may happen anyway. The timeline has been turned around. Why? To protect the incumbents, Lucoff said. Its unfortunate, but thats the way hardball politics is played. Another prominent concern was the absence of drafted maps projecting what the new districts, which will be approved between January and March of 2012, may look like. We believe that puts the cart before the horse, said state Rep. Steve Precourt. In addition to new district boundaries, two districts will be added to Floridas congressional districts, bumping the number from 25 to 27. In addition, the ideal population in each district will rise by 57,050 in congressional districts, 70,434 in Senate districts and 23,492 in the House districts. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 14, 2011 Bryan Doolin / AlligatorAn assistant hands state Sen.

Under plan, city expects to make money back within two and a half yearslocal businesses to encourage shoppers, she said. The plan to eliminate no-charge parking would produce a faster turnover of on-street parking while raising city revenues. According to the study, the setup cost of the project is estimated at $875,000, while the annual cost is estimated at $125,000, for a total Enforcing the new parking restrictions would cost $250,000 annually and require the city to hire additional parking-enforcement staff. The city is expected to make its money back within two and a half years, with total annual revenues estimated at $493,250. The three-member Recreation, Cultural Affairs and Public Works Committee, comprised of Commissioners Mastrodicasa, Scherwin Henry and Todd Chase, also proposes to increase meter rates for lot and on-street parking to further encourage visitors to use garages. According to the proposal, meters would be in effect until 8 p.m., and the committee may push for them to run even later: until 11 p.m. and on Saturdays. The committee argues the elimination of free parking would improve business for local vendors, though others argue it would do just the opposite. People will stop going downtown, said 19-year-old microbiology student Jheel Pandya. When you want to go downtown, you already have to think about paying to get into clubs and everything else. Now parking? Its just too much. If the plan is approved by the commission, the earliest changes would take effect sometime next year. The city also plans to create a website to show pay rates and locations of available parking if the plan is implemented. The next meeting to discuss the parking proposal will be held by the Recreational, Cultural Affairs and Public Works Committee on Sept. 12. PARKING, from page 1do things their way.

Saturday night at the club downtown could get a bit more expensive in the near future, and contrary to the citys hopes, we dont think thats going to attract more customers. The City of Gainesville could be eliminating free parking ness to the area. The 77 free spots would get meters. They contend that people planning to go downtown become discouraged when they see that there are no more free parking will encourage employees to park further away from their businesses, freeing up the closer spots for potential customers. We dont think charging for parking is going to help the matter. At a time when students pockets have more lint than coin, taking away something thats free is not the way to go. We understand that it will likely produce more parking turnover and that the project will likely pay for itself in a few years. But whether its a leisurely lunch or a gin-soaked, stumblinto-your-friends-car kind of night, making a trip downtown We already have cheaper options in midtown. And those of us who already frequent our beloved dives off University Avenue (not anyone on this staff, of course) arent going to appreciate bigger crowds when folks decide that heading downtown isnt worth it.Dont Pass GoParking downtown should stay freeU.S. needs to swing axes at taxesWhat if there were no taxes? Dont snicker. Would there still be civilization? Would society progress? Would we be more or less technologically advanced? Would we be more content? John Locke talked about natural rights: life, liberty and property. He argued that those rights are inherent in all humans. The United States believes in said natural rights. Thomas Jefferson just didnt want to copy and paste, so he threw out property for pursuit of happiness. Taxation goes against these rights. Taxation is inherently anti-property. Money is property and taxation is the forcible removal of money. Taxation also goes against life and liberty. Lets say youve invested time in starting your own lamp business. When the government taxes some of that money, it is taking away property accumulated, which required you to use your life to acquire. Essentially, you just wasted a portion of your life for nothing. Taxation takes away liberty, because now you cant spend your money exactly the way you want to. Thats one less Happy Meal to make you happy. In essence, the mainstream belief is that we pay taxes to have a civilization. People believe that if you take government, and, by extension, taxes away, things will crumble and deteriorate. This simply isnt true. I would point to the skyline of downtown Manhattan. Did taxation build those skyscrapers or did American ingenuity? We shouldnt even be forced to pay taxes especially when the government is usually incompetent. We spend enormous tax revenues on the sacred public school system, created to prevent mobocracy, yet American public education is a joke. I wonder if we can get refunds for that. Republicans, without taxation, wouldnt be able to go to war when they felt like it. Democrats, without taxation, wouldnt be able to keep welfare recipients breastfeeding. during the Civil War. Eventually, the Supreme Court stood up for the Constitution, something it barely does anymore, and declared an income tax unconstitutional at the time. Then Congress passed the 16th Amendment, making it legal to tax income. That was the game changer. Taxes destroy wealth and revenues decrease, so in response, taxes are increased to raise revenues, which destroys even more wealth, and so the cycle continues to spiral out of control. Government doesnt create wealth nor simply redistribute it; it destroys wealth. Taxation is also a way to tip the balance. If you want to lower smoking rates, then slap a sin tax on cigarettes to make them less attractive to buyers. If you want to encour age having children, then give people tax credits for having children. The kicker is when you tax people making lots of money, youre essentially discouraging people from making money. Another problem with our progressive tax system is that the more you make, the greater the percentage of income the government takes. This implies that everyone should have more equal incomes. A progressive tax system is class war fare. Government should not perpetuate class warfare that ultimately divides it citizenry. Ask anyone and theyll tell you that Democrats are for the poor and working class and Republicans are for the rich. Thats horrendous. Taxation is also antithetical to personal responsibility. Taxation supposedly leads to this loving government that provides for the common good with all its nifty programs which people become reliant on: health care, food stamps and housing. Who in their right mind would work and take responsibility if they didnt have to? They say two things are for certain: death and taxes. Id like to narrow that down to one. Chris Ceresa is a chemistry sophomore. His column appears on Thursdays. Chris Ceresaletters@alligator.org Why You Mad?The saddest part about all of this? Not a sliver of surprise was felt by any of us. But when youre dealing with presidential candidate and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, such is to be expected. It didnt take long for the patron saint of verbal and intellectual diarrhea to shift the waves of attention away from her slight oversight of christening Waterloo, Iowa, the birthplace of the quintessential American alpha male, John Wayne, when it actually is known as the home of John Wayne Gacy Jr., a clown-costume-wearing boy rapist / serial killer (cant tell you how many times weve made that slip-up). Now shes upping the ante with reports that claim the clinic she and her husband own engages in therapy that encourages homosexual patients to rewire their sexual drives to commit to the Lords vision of an all-heterosexual order. Glory, glory, hallelujah! But our main qualm isnt with her and her husbands alleged looney-toon hypothesis, one that has been completely defecated on by every medical research that doesnt come with pictures for you to color in. This is America; it is your constitutional right to believe whatever you want no matter how illogical or ridiculous it may be. Our main qualm is that a candidate who has spent her whole political career selling herself to her conservative base as an outspoken champion of Christian values is now distancing her self from it because it could be heaven forbid just a tad too detrimental to her political prospects. Once again, she proves that G.O.P. God has the power to conquer anyShe should just, for the lack of a better word, come out and say, Why you mad? Yeah, we try to cure homos; get off our touched-by-an-angel metaphorical nuts! An American politician with a backbone, what a miracle that would be!

From wands to cloaks, UF students are making their Harry Potter loyalty known. When purchasing tickets a month in advance, Judy Tran, 20, was hit with the harsh realization that even a 30day head start only got her tickets to the 3-D showing. We wanted regular tickets, Tran said, but they were already sold out, even though we thought we were way ahead of the game.

Harry and the Potters, the popular band that plays songs based on J.K. Rowlings series, will be stopping in Gainesville on Saturday. The band will play a free show at the Alachua County Library District Headquarters, 401 E University Ave., at 2 p.m. in Meeting Room A. Brothers Paul and Joe DeGeorge make up the wizard rock band. They started in 2002 and have performed in venues such as librar ies, doughnut shops, pedestrian bridges and residential bathrooms, according to their website. The idea for Harry and the Potters came from reading the books, Paul DeGeorge said. I thought it would be cool if Harry Potter had his own band, he said To him, Harry resembles some of DeGeorges musical heroes like Bruce Springsteen and Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes because they, like Harry, stand up for what they believe in. Paul and Joe portray Harry Potter from two points of time onstage: what Harry would write about while at school, and how Harry would comment on the differ ences between the Wizarding world and the Muggle world in which he was raised, DeGeorge said.

For those of you who read this section with any regularity (are there any of you like that? You should tweet me; Id love to meet you), you know my Off The Record column is mostly about music. There is nothing I appreciate more than music. Except Harry Potter. I appreciate the hell out of the Harry Potter series, created by novelist/mastermind J.K. Rowling. In fact, I appreciate the series just as much as my favor ite record of all time and just as much as any UF football championship both of which are saying a lot. series. When I was in fourth grade, my dad brought home Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone, a fairly small paperback novel with a picture of a nerdy-look The fourth-grade version of me didnt understand the concept of taking a book recommendation from my parents, so on the shelf it sat for years. For some years later, when more books had been added to the Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say they were perfectly normal, thank you very much. So began a long journey through reading exactly 4,100 pages about that nerdy-looking kid with a lightning-bolt scar on his forehead. You dont need to hear any story about how I waited in line at midnight to buy you probably did the same yourself. Instead, the point of this column is to try, in some way, to express the magnitude of what this series has meant to me and to our generation.

As Im sure most of you did, I learned a lot through complete immersion in another world. The same can novel or series that we completely obsess over like we did this one. into your stomach when Hedwig takes an Avada Ke will you laugh at a ridiculous prank pulled by the Weasley twins. So its okay if you want to cry when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 starts at midnight tonight. Its okay if you want to cry throughout the entire damn movie, because youve never witnessed the end of something like this. Except you should know that if you want you will always be able to experience those things. Even if youve read each novel 20 times and watched each forever be immortalized in those 4,100 pages and eight movies. Whenever you want, no matter how old you are or what job youre doing, you can easily escape to that Wizarding world if you want to. And all will be well. thursday, july 14, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 11 By DIANA LOPEZ avenue contributing writer Most Harry Potter fans have been clinging to every word spoken from the genius mouth of J.K. Rowling since the last book of the Harry Potter series came out, hoping for anything new. Its safe to say that fans are now getting just that, and it comes in an exciting bundle called Pottermore. There has been a mysterious air to the Pottermore name, and many in the Muggle community have been spreading rumors faster than the Weasley twins can get detention. Rowling recently abated the growing amount of curiosity, however. She and the Pottermore team have partnered with Sony to create a unique online reading experience for fans of all ages. Sonys association with J.K. Rowlings Pottermore brings together one of the worlds most innovative brands with the most successful book series in history, in a pioneering partnership that will help shape the future of storytelling, said Sir Howard Stringer, chair man, CEO and president of Sony Corp. Many have longed for an online video game similar to World of War craft where gamers can immerse themselves in the world of Harry Potter. While that isnt exactly what Pottermore offers, its a step in that direction. According to the press release, Pottermore offers a free online experience focused around reading the series. Pottermore users will delve into the Wizarding world by casting spells, being sorted into a house by the Sorting Hat and receiving a wand from The Wand Chooser, which offers over 33,000 possible outcomes. Rowling also has new information to share with her readers about char acters, objects and places in the Har ry Potter series that will be revealed throughout the adventure. I will be sharing additional infor mation Ive been hoarding for years about the world of Harry Potter, Row ing said in her Pottermore announce ment video. All seven books in the series will also be available for purchase as emore shop. Pottermore will be unveiled in October, but one million users who complete a challenge on July 31 will be able to test out a beta version. book in the series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone.

This is not a religious debate or political plea; this is a call for open-mindedness and acceptance. Stop reading if you hate equality and dont advocate change. In America, intolerance is a virus often manifested through piercing words. In American sports, intolerance is a disease often coupled with deafening silence. Its 2011, and enough is enough. A current article in Out magazine ship with his gay brother is making online headway. Irvin was contrite and especially blunt. He confessed he should have spoke jack stack of demons, the Playmaker had precise perspective. I think growth comes when we share. Until we do that, were going to be stuck in the Dark Ages about a lot of things. When a guy steps up and says, This is who I am, I guarantee you Ill give him 100 percent support. Im not gay, but I was afraid to even let anyone have the thought. I can only imagine the agony being a prisoner in your own mind for someone who wants to come out. If Im not gay and I am afraid to mention it, I can only imagine what an athlete must be going through if he is gay. QUOTABLE WOMENS WORLD CUP PARSONS AT ESPYS James Harrison Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker on NFL commissioner Roger Goodell Jesse SimontonSimon Saysjsimonton@alligator.org Alligator File Photo PART SERIES EXAMINING By MATT WATTSAlligator Staff Writermwatts@alligator.org The Gators have much to the biggest obstacles out of their control is the schedule. Not since 2006, a year featur ing games against six ranked teams, has Florida faced such a daunting Southeastern Confer ence lineup. But unlike Tim Tebow and campus, theres no hope of a championship this season. The Gators will be trying to merely survive. After opening with the usual non-conference warm-up games (Florida Atlantic on Sept. 3 and Alabama-Birmingham on Sept. 10), Florida welcomes Tenneson Sept. 17. The Vols are in their second year under new coach Derek Dooley and, despite being ignored by most pundits, they have some weapons that could give Florida trouble. Sophomore receivers Justin Hunter (6-foot-4, 200) and DaRick Rogers (6-foot-3, 215) both present matchup problems for UFs diminutive corners. Hunter averaged more than 25 yards per catch last season and scored seven touchdowns a Tennessee freshman record.

But when a 6-foot-4, 222-pound rising high school junior proves he is one of the most athletic prep football players in the nation, people still listen. Yulee High running back Derrick Henry has taken the recruiting landscape by storm after a sophomore season in which he had 303 carries for 2,689 yards and 38 touchdowns. Im just a one-cut back, he said. If I get one cut, then Im gone. His sophomore highlight reel proves his point. The video shows a tower ing speedster rumbling through over matched defenses, breaking tackles with ease and consistently outrunning defensive backs en route to touchdown after touchdown. gotten the 2013 prospect verbal offers from Florida, Florida State and Georgia, it was his performance Orlando that garnered him an invitation to Nikes The Opening showcase last week.

He was part of the Alpha Talon team that won the weekends 7-on7 tournament. out there, so I just wanted to enjoy the experience and take it all in, Henry said. While it is very early in his college recruitment, Henry, a life-long Gators fan, said UF is his leader. Playing in a prostyle offense at Yulee, the running back likes the addition of Charlie Weis and is building a strong bond with Floridas coaching staff. I was very impressed, Henry said of his last meeting with UF coaches. I went and talked to those guys about the offense and how they want to use me if I come there. They me what I need to work on and what they expect out of me. Henry admits he needs to improve on blitz pickup and catching the ball out of the at colleges who say his size would be better utilized at linebacker. People have their opinions, but thats just what people do, he said. Im not even going to listen to it. I know Im a running back, so it doesnt really faze me. With two years of high school football left, Henry is relaxed and having fun with the recruiting process because he knows it only happens once. He doesnt plan to orally commit anywhere until his senior season but already has his eyes set on next years The Opening. Theyre inviting me again, he said. Next year its going to be business, so Ill have to go and do what needs to be done. THURSDAY, JULY 14, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 19 Homosexuality is an uncomfortable topic anywhere, but its an especially sore subject in sports. cant inroads in todays society the recent New York legislation and removal of the military Dont until the sports world accepts homosexuals equally, universal discrimination will not diminish. I dont believe Im overstating this. Like it or not, weve boosted our physical heroes to demigods and kings. No longer are athletes domain simply sports. We obsess over their fashion, sexual dalliances, musical tastes and political interests. The sports world, almost more than any other aspect in the country, can act as the leading platform for change. Although the negative stigma of gays in society has slowly begun to fade, the resistance in sports has been as unyielding as the Berlin Wall. But it too, is ready to crumble. As courageous as it was for John Amaechi, Johnny Weir, Billie Jean King and others to come out, people barely batted an eye. As brave and audacious it was for Phoenix Suns CEO and top NBA executive for three decades Rick Welts to admit he was gay, people shrugged their shoulders. Each circumstance, despite the fresh dialogue, were merely a blip on the sports Richter scale. America needs a face. We need someone thats revered, idolized and venerated. We need someone that exudes swag and masculinity or beauty and femininity. We need someone to stand up and help tear down the barriers of stigmas and stereotypes. We need a gay Kobe Bryant, a homosexual Peyton Manning or a lesbian Serena Williams. Irvin and Charles Barkley have become outspoken in their support for equality and transparency. Both are admirable for their efforts, but many more sports personalities and stars are needed to help mar ginalize the intolerance. In a sports world full of dominant African-American athletes, the most unique position in the As Sir Charles, Irvin and proall admitted, discrimination is discrimination, no matter the skin color, religious belief or sexual orientation. Admittedly, I am no saint. I have made my share of slurs and ill-conceived, ber-macho gaycist remarks. But its 2011, and enough is enough. The time has come for a prominent gay athlete to emerge and lead the resistance against discrimination and prejudice. America needs a gay Tim Tebow to take the road less traveled.

20, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 14, 2011 No. 4 Alabama Coming off a three-loss campaign, Alabama has lost its tag as national championship favorites and it may be the better for it. With the only major Marcell Dareus, the Tide will have the most vaunted front-seven in the nation with an equally dominant safety tandem of senior Mark Barron and junior Robert Lester. The linebacking corps is as solid as it comes with Donta Hightower holding down the middle and Courtney Upshaw (7 sacks) as the jack linebacker. Offensively, the Tide have multiple question marks. With the departures of QB Greg McElroy, WR Julio Jones and 2009 Heisman winner Mark Ingram at RB, Alabama will rely heavily on halfback Trent Richardson. The junior rushed for 700 yards as Ingrams backup, but he showed glimpses as the top back in the SEC. The Tide open 2011 with a tough trip to Penn State in Week 2. 2011 Outlook 7 Offense 9 DefenseReturning Starters RB/KR Trent Richardson(112 carries for 700 yards, 6 TD, 24 kick returns for 634 yards, 1 TD)LB C.J.
