SAMANTHA SHAVELL Alligator Contributing Writer Eight oral contraceptives have been voluntarily recalled because of a packaging error. Alabama-based Qualitest Pharmaceuticals issued the nationwide recall, effective immediately. Products recalled include Cyclafem 7/7/7, Cyclafem 1/35, Emoquette, Gildess FE 1.5/30, Gildess FE 1/20, Orsythia, Previfem and Tri-Previfem, according to the Food and Drug Administration. The packaging defects pose no immediate health risks but can leave women with inadequate contraception. As a result of the error, weekly tablet orientations were reversed, and the expiration dates were not visible, according to the FDA. The recall involves 1.4 million packages that have been distributed since last year, a spokesman for the company told CNN. The Alachua County Health Department and the Student Health Care Center are aware of the recall. The health department clinic has never carried pills by Qualitest Pharmaceuticals, according to Elly Devost, the ACHD clinic manager. The SHCC pharmacy pulled hundreds of packs off its shelves, but it doesnt believe any were packaged incorrectly, said Laura Tipton, the pharmacy manager. The pharmacy records lot numbers and expiration dates for each prescription dispensed. However, the pharmacy is willing to return any recalled item. Students can come in, and the pharmacy will give them a different manufactured product, Tipton said. Qualitest is urging consumers exposed to affected packaging to begin using a non-hormonal form of contraception immediately.

4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2011 DINING SOPHIE COTEAlligator Contributing Writer restaurant in Gainesville to offer a completely vegan menu to its customers. Amid the din of clinking coffee cups and worn-out silverware, co-owners Jason Gottfried and Carlo Besozzi sketched out the plans for the transformation of one of Gainesvilles oldest vegetarian eateries into a full-service vegan cafe. Gottfried, 32, of Nashville, Tenn., recognized the interest and need to provide a more complete dining experience to the growing vegan community in Gainesville. Through the reinvention of the Book Lovers Cafe menu, he and Besozzi hope to meet that goal. Unlike many other restaurants in Gainesvillle that offer both vegan and vegetar ian options, Book Lovers Cafe will have an entirely vegan menu. Veganism is the practice of avoiding the consumption or use of any products derived from animals, including foods containing dairy and eggs. Book Lovers Cafe, located at 505 NW 13th St. in the same building as Books Inc., has been serving vegetarian cuisine to area residents since 1979. Before moving to Gainesville to assume ownership of Book Lovers Cafe, Gottfried served as general manager of The Wild Cow, a vegetarian restaurant in east Nashville, Tenn. Both he and Besozzi practice a vegan lifestyle. After leaving Nashville and working here for a year, I was blown away by how many vegans and vegetarians I met, Gottfried said. The changes were hoping to make will help bring the restaurant into this decade and cater to peoples desire for fresh food without the need for microwaves. In recent years, adopting a vegan lifestyle has gained popularity among students and other members of the Gainesville community, particularly creating awareness for animal welfare and human rights reform. One of our main goals is to become more community-oriented, Gottfried said. I hope that the vegan community will enjoy and support us and help us transform this place into something fantastic.Vegetarian cafe goes completely vegan with new menu I hope that the vegan community will enjoy and support us and help us transform this place into something fantastic.Jason Gottfriedco-owner of Book Lovers Cafe

and verifying each non-native species. The more information you have about non-indigenous reptiles and amphibians, the better idea you have about their range, distribution and potential impact, Robins said. Until about 1940, the majority of non-native species ar rived in Florida via cargo ships or planes from the West Indies or Cuba. More recently, the study indicates, the pet trade, or importing animals to be sold as pets, has been responsible for about 84 percent of all non-native introductions. While owning an exotic reptile or amphibian is OK, Florida law forbids the release of a non-native species into the wild without a permit. Robins said this law, however, is fairly unenforceable because a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to charge someone with the crime. To date, no one has been prosecuted for releasing a non-indigenous animal. One animal importer in particular, Strictly Reptiles Inc. of Hollywood, Fla., was responsible for about 25 percent of the non-native species in Florida. Ray Van Nostrand, a co-owner of the business, said Strictly Reptiles imports and distributes reptiles to customers all over the United States, including pet owners, researchers and zoos. Van Nostrand questioned whether pet owners release of exotic animals was really a problem. Researchers dont really know the environmental impact, he said. Out of all the years Ive been doing this, Ive never had a call that said, Theres an exotic frog in my yard, and its a problem.

Column EditorialTUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/OPINIONS Elizabeth Behrman EDITOR Joey Flechas MANAGING EDITOR Justin Hayes OPINIONS EDITORToiling Over TuitionIn tough economy, Is the Gainesville chapter of Students for a Democratic Society something to protest? Last week, SDS organized a protest, marched into Tigert Hall and demanded an end to annual tuition hikes. No one likes to see tuition rates increase, but in tough economic times, the belts of everyone have to tighten. With annual tuition hikes, surely UF has the one of the highest tuition rates in the country, right? Actually, UF is ranked 11th in Forbes Top 20 Best Value Colleges in the nation. If the college raises tuition at the rate of 15 percent per year, it will not reach the national average until 2019. Everyone is on a tight budget, and no one likes paying more, but eventually wishes and hopes must succumb to reality. You do not have a right to be here. You voluntarily chose to come to UF, and to demand that administrators give up their salaries to support your desire to pay less is a little childish. We ask that you do not waste your upcoming opportunity to present a strong defense of your position when you meet with the university administration. This is not to say that no one in SDS is really concerned about paying more, but storming into Tigert Hall and screaming demands to speak with President Bernie Machen makes it seem like the members are pining for a return to the 1960s. It is a lot easier to convince someone on your side of the argument through calm, rational debate rather than screaming and holding picket signs. You have the right to protest or assemble, but there are better strategies. Also, in the very hall where you were protesting, graduate students were trying to conduct important presentations but were disturbed by your yelling. Is that really in the best interest of the students? So for the activists in SDS, this is a call to action. Defend your right to pay less for your education. Why are tuition hikes for a school with below-average tuition rates the end of the world? Should UF not be allowed to determine its own standards for entry and payment? Students seem to be getting a pretty good deal. It is not like cial burden. The editorial board of the Alligator asks that members of the SDS and other groups on campus who feel angered by the tuition hikes to send letters to the editor defending their position. As you may notice from the letter by a graduate student a few weeks ago, there is not a collective distaste for these tuition hikes. The Alligator has endorsed the painful but necessary tuition hikes before but the editorial board has limits, too. When Machen wanted a one-time 30 percent increase, the Alligator objected and suggested locking in rates from freshman year through graduation. We would greatly appreciate a response to this issue. Todays question: Would you vote for a woman for president?79 TOTAL VOTES62% YES 38% NOMondays question: undergraduate degree in four years or fewer? Id like to issue an apology on behalf of all women. Sorry, ladies, but I think a good percentage of you will agree with me anyway. attention to politics. It seems to me that women politicians are still viewed as a joke, especially between the 2008 election season and the current campaign. And of course they are seen that way. People are usually given attention if they are different or controversial. Everyone likes attention, right? So the natural response should be to keep doing whatever earned that atSarah Palin took that to mean being more rogue, more every-woman and more detached from the news media. She basically became a complete caricature of herself. Voters like things to be very simple. Straightforward politics are preferred in this country. People dont want any of those conditional mumbo-jumbo arguments where decisions depend on circumstances. Campaign seasons are for declarative statements that appease people in the moment. That angle is perfect for politicians who are trying to earn votes rather than keep the numbers they already have. In my view, Palin was never a valid candidate. But Sami, I hear you asking, Dont ladies automatically vote for other ladies? Not when they think that lady is crazy. Did you ever ask yourself why Palin was selected to be John McCains running mate? Essentially, the only people who would vote for McCain also look exactly like him. The Republican Party ticket needed spice and pizazz and controversy. Palin brought attention to their campaign with her gender and her opinions. votes. The fact that she is a female was enough controver sy to catch the medias attention. It was after the fact that we got to see the other levels of her personality. There was a brief panic in America with the beginning of the 2012 presidential race: Who was going to be Americas sweetheart now that Palin wasnt running? Thankfully, Michele Bachmann arrived on the scene. Bachmann is just another example of how important extremes are to this nation. If someone isnt making a scene, theyre not going to earn press. And I think we all know Bachmann likes a scene. Women in politics will not be listened to unless they are causing a ruckus that is a little absurd to me. Are we not past this yet? Can we just have female politicians, no questions asked? Instead, we are presented only with cartoons. Is that what we want our children to be exposed to? Its not fair that the only highly visible role models available are basically the worst ones. So, heres my apology: Sorry. Im sorry for the ladies and to the ladies. Im sorry that, as far as presidential candidates go, there arent often good examples to look up to. I wish that the loudest voices werent the only ones heard. thing a little one-sided. As you can see, I lean a certain way politically. I dont even think that matters in this case, though. Even if I belonged to the Republican Party, I would still feel mildly ashamed of the females representing me. This goes beyond whether or not I agree with their politics because that answer is easy: I am just legitimately saddened that two of the most talked-about females in these recent elections are poor role models. Maybe this is all to inspire the next generation to be better than using gender as a springboard for politics. It shouldnt matter what your gender is if your policies are a little nutty. Apology accepted? Sami Main is a journalism junior at UF. Her column appears on Tuesdays. Sami Mainletters@alligator.org

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Recently, a friend of mine, seemingly distraught, complained that Jon Stewarts frequent summer vacations left him repeatedly bereft of meaningful political insight and general news information. I berated him for neglecting the legitimate media. I explained that Stewart is a comedian, not a news anchor a wit, not a pundit. However, I realized that perhaps I had blamed the wrong person. Perhaps my friend was not at fault for relying on Stewart, but rather Stewart was for failing to care for those who had become dependent on him. It seemed that in watching Stewart week after week, my friend and those like him had gone from simply watching him on TV to looking up to him. He had become much more than the host of a late-night talk show. As students, this phenomenon should shock none of us. After semesters of exposure to a teacher, few among us can say that we have not come to rely on that persons regular presence in our lives and not just for their knowledge. Since weve become attached to these teachers, a week without their wisdom is noticeable. But should we put such a (perhaps parental) burden on these people, particularly Stewart? At what point do those that we look up to have to look back down at us? Does Stewart have some sort of moral and professional obligation to the people who watch him to provide a service he did not initially set out to provide? The Pew Research Center for the People and the Press conducted a poll in 2007 that asked Americans to name the journalist they most admired. Stewart came in fourth, tied with news anchors Brian Williams and Tom Brokaw of NBC, Dan Rather of CBS and Anderson Cooper of CNN. A 2009 poll by Time asked the question, Now that Walter Cronkite has passed on, who is Americas most trusted newscaster? Stewart, with 44 percent of the vote, beat out Brian Williams (29 percent), Charlie Gibson (19 percent) and Katie Couric (9 percent). Because my college-educated friend and so many Americans rely on Stewart for the news and trust him to provide it, perhaps he has a moral obligation to take up the reign as a consistent provider of reliable news. That is not to say that he needs to cease being a comedian, as the use of his wit is undoubtedly part of his appeal. Rather, he needs to make sure to deliver his act with consistency and accuracy. I recognize that the station that broadcasts The Daily Show is Comedy Central, not CNN. I simultaneously recognize, however, that Because Americans look up and listen to Stewart to such a degree, he has increased responsibility that makes the dependent viewer less to blame. It is important to note that Stewart makes it clear that he does not deliver accurate, unbiased news. It may be the case he needs to live up to that image. As Stewart often points out, legitimate news stations especially Fox News often report inaccurately. A discussion of general news biases is important but not relevant here. I do not condone the somewhat extreme predispositions of Fox News or MSNBC, but neither leaves room for the same level of cognitive dissonance that The Daily Show does; they deliver what is expected of them, consistently. Yes, my friend needs to subscribe to The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. He and many others need to diversify the sources from which they draw information and craft opinions. Simultaneously, the people who hold the ears school teachers ought to be nurturing, and Stewart ought to deliver credible, consistent reporting. Stewart ought to mix fact look up to him and take his word as truth. (And, in his absences, Stewart should hire a replacement host.)

So whats order to survive, no different than any other business; and by the end of September, its going to be hard up for cash. A recent article published in Gizmodo mentioned the Postal Service and its dilemma. It summarized this as, Not only are they going under, but theyre going under fast minus the life vest. According to the article, The postmaster general, Patrick Donahoe, might get rid of Saturday mail delivery, lay off 120,000 workers labor costs too much and revenue is down. Congress is having problems balancing its checkbook. We all know that. However, the bailout. The Postal Service is about to default on a payment of $5.5 billion. Personally, if that were my bar tab, Id be long gone by now. it may not seem so obvious. I do. My mail always reaches the correct destination, Im rarely overcharged, and its adamant about delivering those dreaded bill envelopes. My question here is really about after effects and thing of the past, what will be the proxy? According to The New York Times, Mail volume has plummeted with the rise of email, electronic bill-paying and a Web that makes everything from fashion catalogs to news instantly available. The system will handle an estimated 167 billion pieces of And so the debate goes: The Internet killed pen pals. Pen pals became email junkies, and it all became convenient. The Postal Service suffered greatly from this cyber Santa of opportuneness and the after effect: The whole shebang simply cost us more. Rather than playing the blame game, I ask: Where is the solution? Unbeknownst to some, the Postal Service is actually a necessity. By how much, Im not sure. Think about your grandparents. What if they arent keyboard savvy? Perhaps they dont have access to a computer, never mind if they know how to use one. How will those people function? And has anybody given thought to our troops overseas? They rely heavily on the Postal Service as a gateway to home. So yes, I guess we still need the Postal Service, perhaps in a quota that we can afford. The kind of quota that doesnt kill the messenger. Congress needs to empty its handbag and re-evaluate those nickels and dimes. Andrea Keating is a guest columnist for the Central Florida Future at UCF.

TYLER JETTAlligator Staff WriterLaFAYETTE, Ga. Keri ONeil is a heavy sleeper; few distur bances get her up and moving. But at 5 a.m. on Feb. 12, lying on the maroon carpet in Room 108 of the Key West Inn, all it took was a slight shake of the foot. Do you want to go some place really cool with me? Grant Lockenbach asked. What? The room was still dark as eight other UF students slept through the conversation. They had come to LaFayette, Ga., to spend the day exploring caves. Come on, he said. Ive been up for more than an hour. Theres this really cool place I want to go. Just come with me. Lockenbach had checked into the hotel at 11:40 the night before, though nobody went to sleep until 3 a.m., when the second half of the group arrived from Gainesville. This morning marked ONeil and Lockenbachs 20th day as a couple, and she had already grown used to her boyfriends impulsiveness. When the two couldnt decide on an apONeils house and asked her to hop in his beat-up green Volvo. He drove to Ben Hill Grifjust talking. It was a weeknight in January, and Lockenbach had to get up at 5 a.m. for ROTC training. He didnt care. They talked for hours. Fellowship of Christian Athletes as freshmen in until Keris twin, Michele, started dating one of Lockenbachs best friends in the summer of 2010. While on a religious fast at the beginning of this year, Lockenbach thought he heard God telling him to date Keri. He wrote her a poem, needed to think about it. that were supposed to be dating, he said. On the morning of Feb. 12, she agreed to sneak out of the hotel. Lockenbach, who stood 6-feet tall, 175 pounds with a strong jaw and socks. About 15 minutes later, she sat shoeless overlooking LaFayette, a rural Georgia town 101 miles northwest of Atlanta with a population of about 8,000 and a billboard appealing to didnt care about losing sleep. He wanted to watch the sun rise. The only problem was neither of them knew which direction to look or when the sun would actually come up. They sat. They talked. They waited. And, two hours later, shivering in the dim, 28-degree morning, they left. Within 10 minutes, as they drove down the bach pulled a 10-point turn and gunned his car back up. What were we thinking? he asked, frustrated with his own impatience. Its not like the sun just wasnt going to rise today. Michael Pirie heard screams, but he didnt hear words. Nobody did. It was 2 p.m., and Pirie stood with eight others at the ledge of a 125-foot pit. The group was hoping for a fun weekend surveying Pigeon Mountain. But now, standing on that ledge amid the darkness of Ellisons Cave, they were desperate to decipher Lockenbachs voice. Each member of the group was part of FCA, and Lockenbach was the president. He was the most experienced caver one of the only experienced cavers, in fact. A thrill-seeker, Lockenbach started cave diving three years ago. During the 2010-2011 school roommate Aaron McPhail said. Two weeks ear lier, Lockenbach led a group to Tumbling Rock Cave in Jackson County, Ala. Before that, on his way back from New York after a New Years Eve trip, Lockenbach and his friends explored PettyJohns, one of about 60 caves inside Pigeon Mountain. Lockenbach was a member of the univer sitys ROTC, trained to parachute from planes and rappel out of helicopters. He belonged to a local rock-climbing gym, where he once chatted with his mother on the phone while hanging upside-down. He dropped the phone, and her ears were greeted with a thud. students explored a separate part of Ellisons Cave while Lockenbach and Pirie rigged ropes at the Warm Up Pit. In the process, a black High them. The bag held ropes and other climbing gear, so Lockenbach went down to retrieve it. Now, minutes later, Pirie and the rest of the group listened intently. For whatever reason, Lockenbachs voice was not reaching them bouncing off the rocks. Or maybe he couldnt compete with the sound of the waterfall. lier, and cold water ran through the cave toward the pits. During their exploration, the other eight students had, at times, been waist-deep. man from Oviedo, and Lockenbach, a sociology junior from DeLand, split from the rest of the group. During a three-day weekend retreat in January to Gatlinburg, Tenn., Lockenbach told other upperclassmen that Pirie could one day become the FCA president. Most members of the group hardly knew Pirie before the trip. He played bass in the 29-member UF drumline, and he spent eight hours a week at practice during the fall. But come more involved with FCA. In Tennessee, he became Magic Mike after surprising people with card illusions (Tricks are for kids; I do illusions, he once wrote in a document on his computer). As a senior at Lake Highland Prepatory the previous year, Pirie had been president of Project Magic, the and low-income communities. He cut women into thirds and reattached them. He used metamorphosis to switch places with a friend padlocked inside a mail bag. He had mastered the teleportation box. But his specialty was sleight of hand. He was named Mr. Lake Highland Prep after turning one students card into ash, rubbing it on both sides of his forearm and exposing a message reading, The Luckily, someone had a deck in Tennessee. He did this one trick where he pulled a card out of nowhere. It was like some David Blaine stuff. For real, dude. Lockenbach was just as impressed by Magic Mikes commitment to FCA. Pirie played drums in the worship team during Wednesday night services and was at Bible study every Monday. ished a three-week religious fast, Pirie showed up at the celebration just to be with them. with scoops of ice cream in between. Pirie ate syrup just because someone said, You wont. Pirie was 5-foot-9 and 152 pounds, and his brown hair seemed to always stay perfect, combed left to right. He liked wakeboarding, snowboarding and sets. He invented Tip the Hat, Kick the Cat. He told friends in FCA he would massage a sleeping girls bare feet if he lost a bet. He won the bet. He did it anyway. Theyre the same person. Mike is like the freshman version of Grant, said Michele ONeil, who stood beside Pirie in Ellisons Cave. The group knew Lockenbach needed help, so three students sprinted down the mountain to call 911. They had brought a cellphone into the cave for emergencies, but it sat at the bottom of the pit. Pirie and the rest of the students who stayed in the cave heard bits of Lockenbachs screams. He yelled for Pirie. They tried to explain a rescue team was coming, tried to tell him to stay calm for just a little longer. In a half hour, they said, the rescue team will be here. But their voices werent reaching him, and Lockenbach kept calling for Michael, kept telling him he needed help. The group needed a liaison, someone who could calm Lockenbach as they waited for the rescue team. A girl volunteered, but Pirie rebuffed her. Can you pray for me? he asked. Because I have no idea what Im doing. He then strapped on a white helmet and descended. He didnt rappel, a woman in the group later remembered. He basically just fell down the pit. Were OK, Pirie yelled from somewhere below. Were just cold. At the ledge, Keri ONeil prayed. God, save them. Comfort them. Pigeon Mountain forms the right half of a V with Lookout Mountain, and the two fuse at the northwestern corner of Georgia. The former occupies about 20,000 acres and reaches an altitude of about 2,300 feet. It lies on the TennesseeAlabama-Georgia line, a North American spelunking Mecca. Every year, 10,000 cavers come to the mountain. Nobody knows when people started investigating the intestines of Pigeon Mountain, but historians found ads more than a century old persuading readers to explore PettyJohns Cave. Ellisons is one of the most popular spots among experienced cavers looking for a challenge, most notably because of Fantastic Pit and its 586-foot drop the deepest caving pit in the continental The Crockford-Pigeon Mountain Wildlife Management Area is located off Georgia Highway 193, but even from LaFayette it can be difdesired entrance, an inexperienced caver can easily get lost. When hiking toward PettyJohns, for example, a path can form in the minds eye only to disappear steps later among the rocks and wrinkled brown leaves that swallow each step. If hikers turn left, they may think they took a wrong turn. They will try to turn back before For Lockenbach, this was a proper sport, a sport untouched by man-made attraction. There are no real rules, only suggestions. The rocks are the boundaries. Caving is not a sport in the sense of winning and losing. There is no race to the top, no medal for exploring the deepest pits. And the danger, unlike in most traditional sports, is always real. According to the 1986 and 2008, there were reports worldwide of 394 cavers falling, 162 being stranded or trapped, 169 being hit by falling rocks, 100 getting lost and 49 suffering from But this trip was not about danger or, really, any type of discovery for Lockenbach. He doesnt plan trips because he loves caving, said Dustin Gill, one of his roommates. He plans trips because he wants to get to know people. Gill was not supposed to go to LaFayette with Lockenbach and Aaron McPhail, his other roommate. hadnt even started. But when a car showed up at 7 p.m. on Friday to pick up McPhail Lockenbach and others left around noon Gill decided to go, too. You could knock out two pages in the hotel room, his friends convinced him. He scrambled to pack a bag, and 10 minutes later, he was riding in Michele ONeils blue 2005 Ford Escape. Like the others in his group, Gill did not rearrived at the Warm Up Pit. He could hear yelling, but the only words he understood were, Help! and Im stuck! McPhail and another man started walking back to the parking lot to call for assistance, but Gill continued to hear Lockenbachs screams ate than anyone originally thought. He bolted down the mountain. Gill and Lockenbach met in Mrs. Adneys third grade class at Woodward Avenue Elemenjust moved from Atlanta. Both students were in the schools gifted program, and they were in the same classes for three straight years. They had grown up climbing trees and eating Chinese plums. In Gainesville, Lockenbach would pop his head in Gills room to bum cookie dough or instigate debates with questions like, What would Karl Marx think about Walmart? Reaching the bottom of Pigeon Mountain, Gill dialed 911 at 2:19 p.m. He tried to remain calm, but he struggled to catch his breath. His voice cracked. Its just one guy who is down there and cant get back up, he said, unaware of what Pidown there. Theres water. We cant hear anyhelp. Were OK. Were just cold, Pirie continued to tell whoever could hear him. It was 3:30 p.m. He had been in the pit for half an hour, and he still didnt know when the rescue team would arrive. He told Lockenbach they would soon be safe, and he kept yelling to Keri, letting her know they were hanging on. But the panic in Piries voice betrayed him. Grant! he yelled. Pirie repeated the name twice more Grant! Grant! his voice growing louder, more desperate each time. Keri asked Pirie if her boyfriend was OK, knowing the truth before the words escaped her mouth. Pirie did not lie, electing instead to misinterpret the question. a different question. stopped asking questions. When the three-man Initial Response Task Force arrived at 3:58 p.m., she left with the two other women who had stayed in the cave. As she walked into the light, Keri cried, sure she would never see her boyfriend again. in the gravel parking lot at the base of Pigeon Mountain at 3:11 p.m., about an hour after Gill emergencies demand a long response time. A rescue team isnt sitting together at a pospring into action when needed. Chuck Waters, the regional supervisor of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, was at the mall when he received the call. In all, the rescue team consisted of 34 memsources, six from Walker County Emergency Once members of the team had assembled, they still had to march one mile to the cave, located 850 feet above the parking lot. The Initial Response Task Force started the hike at 3:20 p.m. They reached the Warm Up Pit about 40 where Lockenbach and Pirie were suspended about 80 feet down. Pirie was below Lockenbach, his head resting on his own right shoulder and his helmet hanging by a string. Piries left arm was extended, a thick black rope wrapped around his wrist. That rope was entangled with another. When the rescue team found him, LockenHis arms were stretched out, his face tilted toward the sky. Nobody knows exactly what happened to of the rescue team think his rope was too short for the 125-foot pit. Others say the ropes length ver once he became trapped in the waterfall. Water running down the pit came from the nearby snow that had just started melting. Its temperature was in the high 30s or low 40s. Cavers are instructed to wear three layers of clothing in such conditions. Lockenbach was wear ing a blue Florida Gators T-shirt, Pirie a black long-sleeved shirt and khaki shorts. When the rescue team found him, Lockenbach had been in the waterfall for more than two hours, Pirie for about half as long. According to the autopsy report, it is possible that one or both of them experienced cold shock response. With their bodies submerged in water of that temperature, they could have hyperventilated for up to three minutes. Both men would have eventually recovered. Body temperature normally rests at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit; hypothermia occurs when it dips below 95. In 40-degree water, it can take effect in 10 to 20 minutes, but Lockenbach and Pirie werent fully submerged, likely delaying the process. Once hypothermia sets in, howevthe core of the body, away from the extremities, causing loss of coordination. The heart and the nervous system and other organs stop functioning correctly, and speech is slurred, and confusion sets in. Breathing becomes slow. It becomes shallow. Organs soon fail; it just becomes a matter of which one stops But well before any organ failed, well before the nearly ice-cold water overwhelmed Pirie pension Trauma. As you hang in a harness, blood begins to build up in your legs. If you can move around and shift your weight, the blood will continue to circulate. But if you stop moving, your circulation shock. Your pulse increases. You breathe faster. You feel sick. You sweat. You shiver. You become anxious. Eventually, you faint. When the rescue team found the bodies, they also found two lights shining: a headlamp on a nearby ledge and a Mini Maglite 40 feet below. Would God ever ask you to jump off a cliff? Jason Mills posed that question to the FCA freshmen Bible study group in his living room one Monday night. tian novel. In the book, Mack, the protagonist, takes his daughters on a camping trip. He tells them about a princess who jumped off a cliff to cure her tribe of a disease. His daughter wondo the same. Mack said no. God would never do that. thought to himself, This kid is not confused. He knows what his faith demands of him. Five days later, Pirie rappelled down the Warm Up Pit inside Ellisons Cave. I had no idea how literal that question would be in Michaels life, Mills told a group of friends the night after Pirie died. Pirie would have turned 19 on June 18; Lockenbach was just one week shy of his 21st birthday. But in the weeks following their deaths, a theme emerged at funerals and campus memorial services: They simply were not meant to grow old. Forever, they will be the kids who invented extreme swinging on middle school playgrounds. Forever, they will be the ones who show they cared. Dustin Gill and Aaron McPhail, who both lived with Lockenbach, said they are recovering as best they can. They live in the same house this year. They rented out Lockenbachs room to a friend. Its just a room. Its not Grant. Imagine a staircase with the bottom being despair and the top being accepting reality, Gill said. Im doing OK because Im going up the steps. The steps hurt. Going back to the hotel that night, that hurt. Driving his car back to Gainesville the next morning, that hurt. But as long as I keep moving up the steps and not going back, Im doing OK. The week after the trip, Keri ONeil would not eat unless someone placed food in front of her. The idea of standing up and walking across good reason. Every night, almost every hour, on the hour, she woke up. After her boyfriend woke her with a slight shake of the foot in Room 108 of the Key West Inn, Keri ONeil became a light sleeper.

Submit questions on Twitter: @alligatorSports alligatorSports PodcastTom Green and Matt Watts join host Greg Luca to bring you another action-packed podcast breaking down Floridas win against Tennessee on Saturday. Check it out on iTunes or at alligatorSports.org. Brett Le Blanc / Alligator Staff TYLER JETTAlligator Staff WriterFloridas offense has thrived from the opening act in each game, in part because the players have received simple instructions: follow the script. Offensive coordinator Charlie Weis has orchestrated the Gators initial plays well in advance this year, holding meetings with quarterback John Brantley about 24 hours before kickoffs to ley the plays he wants to run, in order, and Brantley lets his coach know if he feels uncomfortable with anything on the script. Its a really good idea, Brantley said Monday. It gives you a chance to look at what youre running to get familiar with it. Its real important going into a game. Florida has scored on each of its three opening drives this year, including a nine-play, 80-yard series ending in a touchdown Saturday against Tennessee. In all, the Gators have outscored opLast season, Florida outscored opponents 56-48 in the opening quarter. Roberson passes test: Facing a produccollege career, freshman cornerback Mar cus Roberson helped limit Tennessee to 288 passing yards about 50 yards shy of the Vols season average. Coach Will Muschamp said Roberson does a good job of jamming receivers at the line and getting between the ball and its intended target. Once the ball is in the air, Roberson attacks it. He jumped a slant route in the third quarter Saturday for what back as Roberson was charged with a questionable pass interfer ence. He works hard at practice, Muschamp said. He has good retention day in, day out for what we do and how we do it. Ive been very pleased with his progress. While the Gators defensive backs received praise for keeping the Vols hyped air attack in check, Muschamp said his team SEE NOTEBOOK, P A GE 16 KELLY PRICEAlligator WriterST.

On Friday, Maye, a Florida oral commit, and Melbourne Holy Trinity (2-0) dominated St. Petersburg Catholic (0-3), 35-6, on a run-down Northside Christian Maye, rated the No. 5 safety in the nation by Rivals.com, is used to this kind of low-key playing environment. gotta play to the best of my ability and do everything I have to do to get the job done, he said of playing in obscure backyard pitches of grass across Floridas tiny Class 3A landscape. After going up against some of the nations best talent during the summer combine season, Maye has received plenty of hate mail regarding his choice to play at Holy Trinity rather than a larger Melbourne public school in a competitive class. I decided to go to the Holy Trinity School because it was a college preparatory school, and then football was just, you know, there, he said. I felt like I needed to get away from certain things and be around the right people to keep focused and maintain that right my friends who go to public school. I just take it and run with it. I feel like I dedicate myself hard enough to where wrong. Come fall 2012, though, the 6-foot-1, 195-pound Maye will have to transition from playing near local swamps to The MATT WATTSAlligator Staff WriterOn the Gators defense, some players are more visible than others. In addition to his well-publicized dance moves, Dominique Easley turned heads by often than not Saturday. Matt Elams interception that sealed the victory will be replayed time and again, but he also made headlines for Twitter barbs exchanged with Vols receiver DaRick Rogers. All Jon Bostic and Jelani Jenkins do is show up and make plays. The unsung heroes of Floridas defense, Bostic led the team with eight tackles against Tennessee, and Jenkins was second with six. Both linebackers also picked up a sack of quarterback Tyler Bray, and the Gators held the Vols to minus-9 yards rushing the best effort by Floridas defense since the 2006 Tennessee game (minus-11). The (defensive) linemen did a great job of keeping the offensive linemen off of me, and I give all my praise to them, Jenkins said after the win. Quiet and modest in interviews, Jenkins and Bostic come alive on Saturdays. While Easley, Jaye Howard and the rest of the defensive front play a large role, they also need reliable talent behind them. Together, the unit has limited opponents to 92 yards rushing through three games, tops in the nation.

In this brief moment of celebration, one of Florida high school footballs most unasline for dropping the ball before crossing the goal line. A St. Pete Catholic defender recovered the fumble in the end zone for a touchback. So Maye lined up again, this time on defense, just to watch the opposing of the night. He expressed no reaction. Humility is perhaps something public school wouldnt have taught him. Oral commitments are non-binding until a national letter of intent is signed on or after National Signing Day on Feb. 1, 2012.

There is no surgery required very frustrated for Jeremy. He is a great young man. I hurt for him. Tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring) is questionable for Saturdays game against Kentucky.

For the seventh straight game in the series, the team that won the rushing battle won the game; and again, that team was Florida. Despite all the attention on Bray and the Gators inexperienced secondary leading up to the game, it all came down to basics: run the ball and stop the run. All throughout two-a-days and even here in the spring, that was an emphasis we wanted to make, Bostic said. We want to stop the run. We want to be one of the most physical defenses in the country. He said the defenses ranking is unimportant. What is important is making the opposition one-dimensional. Jenkins agreed, saying how Florida started the game set the tone. rest of the way. That forces them to try to get points and they start forcing the ball in the air a lot more, Jenkins said. including Elams exclamation point as time was running out in the fourth quarter.

Products recalled include Cyclafem 7/7/7, Cyclafem 1/35, Emoquette, Gildess FE 1.5/30, Gildess FE 1/20, Orsythia, Previfem and Tri-Previfem, according to the Food and Drug Administration. The packaging defects pose no immediate health risks but can leave women with inadequate contraception. As a result of the error, weekly tablet orientations were reversed, and the expiration dates were not visible, according to the FDA. The recall involves 1.4 million packages that have been distributed since last year, a spokesman for the company told CNN. The Alachua County Health Department and the Student Health Care Center are aware of the recall. The health department clinic has never carried pills by Qualitest Pharmaceuticals, according to Elly Devost, the ACHD clinic manager. The SHCC pharmacy pulled hundreds of packs off its shelves, but it doesnt believe any were packaged incorrectly, said Laura Tipton, the pharmacy manager. The pharmacy records lot numbers and expiration dates for each prescription dispensed. However, the pharmacy is willing to return any recalled item. Students can come in, and the pharmacy will give them a different manufactured product, Tipton said. Qualitest is urging consumers exposed to affected packaging to begin using a non-hormonal form of contraception immediately.

4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2011 DINING SOPHIE COTEAlligator Contributing Writer restaurant in Gainesville to offer a completely vegan menu to its customers. Amid the din of clinking coffee cups and worn-out silverware, co-owners Jason Gottfried and Carlo Besozzi sketched out the plans for the transformation of one of Gainesvilles oldest vegetarian eateries into a full-service vegan cafe. Gottfried, 32, of Nashville, Tenn., recognized the interest and need to provide a more complete dining experience to the growing vegan community in Gainesville. Through the reinvention of the Book Lovers Cafe menu, he and Besozzi hope to meet that goal. Unlike many other restaurants in Gainesvillle that offer both vegan and vegetar ian options, Book Lovers Cafe will have an entirely vegan menu. Veganism is the practice of avoiding the consumption or use of any products derived from animals, including foods containing dairy and eggs. Book Lovers Cafe, located at 505 NW 13th St. in the same building as Books Inc., has been serving vegetarian cuisine to area residents since 1979. Before moving to Gainesville to assume ownership of Book Lovers Cafe, Gottfried served as general manager of The Wild Cow, a vegetarian restaurant in east Nashville, Tenn. Both he and Besozzi practice a vegan lifestyle. After leaving Nashville and working here for a year, I was blown away by how many vegans and vegetarians I met, Gottfried said. The changes were hoping to make will help bring the restaurant into this decade and cater to peoples desire for fresh food without the need for microwaves. In recent years, adopting a vegan lifestyle has gained popularity among students and other members of the Gainesville community, particularly creating awareness for animal welfare and human rights reform. One of our main goals is to become more community-oriented, Gottfried said. I hope that the vegan community will enjoy and support us and help us transform this place into something fantastic.Vegetarian cafe goes completely vegan with new menu I hope that the vegan community will enjoy and support us and help us transform this place into something fantastic.Jason Gottfriedco-owner of Book Lovers Cafe

and verifying each non-native species. The more information you have about non-indigenous reptiles and amphibians, the better idea you have about their range, distribution and potential impact, Robins said. Until about 1940, the majority of non-native species ar rived in Florida via cargo ships or planes from the West Indies or Cuba. More recently, the study indicates, the pet trade, or importing animals to be sold as pets, has been responsible for about 84 percent of all non-native introductions. While owning an exotic reptile or amphibian is OK, Florida law forbids the release of a non-native species into the wild without a permit. Robins said this law, however, is fairly unenforceable because a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to charge someone with the crime. To date, no one has been prosecuted for releasing a non-indigenous animal. One animal importer in particular, Strictly Reptiles Inc. of Hollywood, Fla., was responsible for about 25 percent of the non-native species in Florida. Ray Van Nostrand, a co-owner of the business, said Strictly Reptiles imports and distributes reptiles to customers all over the United States, including pet owners, researchers and zoos. Van Nostrand questioned whether pet owners release of exotic animals was really a problem. Researchers dont really know the environmental impact, he said. Out of all the years Ive been doing this, Ive never had a call that said, Theres an exotic frog in my yard, and its a problem.

Column EditorialTUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/OPINIONS Elizabeth Behrman EDITOR Joey Flechas MANAGING EDITOR Justin Hayes OPINIONS EDITORToiling Over TuitionIn tough economy, Is the Gainesville chapter of Students for a Democratic Society something to protest? Last week, SDS organized a protest, marched into Tigert Hall and demanded an end to annual tuition hikes. No one likes to see tuition rates increase, but in tough economic times, the belts of everyone have to tighten. With annual tuition hikes, surely UF has the one of the highest tuition rates in the country, right? Actually, UF is ranked 11th in Forbes Top 20 Best Value Colleges in the nation. If the college raises tuition at the rate of 15 percent per year, it will not reach the national average until 2019. Everyone is on a tight budget, and no one likes paying more, but eventually wishes and hopes must succumb to reality. You do not have a right to be here. You voluntarily chose to come to UF, and to demand that administrators give up their salaries to support your desire to pay less is a little childish. We ask that you do not waste your upcoming opportunity to present a strong defense of your position when you meet with the university administration. This is not to say that no one in SDS is really concerned about paying more, but storming into Tigert Hall and screaming demands to speak with President Bernie Machen makes it seem like the members are pining for a return to the 1960s. It is a lot easier to convince someone on your side of the argument through calm, rational debate rather than screaming and holding picket signs. You have the right to protest or assemble, but there are better strategies. Also, in the very hall where you were protesting, graduate students were trying to conduct important presentations but were disturbed by your yelling. Is that really in the best interest of the students? So for the activists in SDS, this is a call to action. Defend your right to pay less for your education. Why are tuition hikes for a school with below-average tuition rates the end of the world? Should UF not be allowed to determine its own standards for entry and payment? Students seem to be getting a pretty good deal. It is not like cial burden. The editorial board of the Alligator asks that members of the SDS and other groups on campus who feel angered by the tuition hikes to send letters to the editor defending their position. As you may notice from the letter by a graduate student a few weeks ago, there is not a collective distaste for these tuition hikes. The Alligator has endorsed the painful but necessary tuition hikes before but the editorial board has limits, too. When Machen wanted a one-time 30 percent increase, the Alligator objected and suggested locking in rates from freshman year through graduation. We would greatly appreciate a response to this issue. Todays question: Would you vote for a woman for president?79 TOTAL VOTES62% YES 38% NOMondays question: undergraduate degree in four years or fewer? Id like to issue an apology on behalf of all women. Sorry, ladies, but I think a good percentage of you will agree with me anyway. attention to politics. It seems to me that women politicians are still viewed as a joke, especially between the 2008 election season and the current campaign. And of course they are seen that way. People are usually given attention if they are different or controversial. Everyone likes attention, right? So the natural response should be to keep doing whatever earned that atSarah Palin took that to mean being more rogue, more every-woman and more detached from the news media. She basically became a complete caricature of herself. Voters like things to be very simple. Straightforward politics are preferred in this country. People dont want any of those conditional mumbo-jumbo arguments where decisions depend on circumstances. Campaign seasons are for declarative statements that appease people in the moment. That angle is perfect for politicians who are trying to earn votes rather than keep the numbers they already have. In my view, Palin was never a valid candidate. But Sami, I hear you asking, Dont ladies automatically vote for other ladies? Not when they think that lady is crazy. Did you ever ask yourself why Palin was selected to be John McCains running mate? Essentially, the only people who would vote for McCain also look exactly like him. The Republican Party ticket needed spice and pizazz and controversy. Palin brought attention to their campaign with her gender and her opinions. votes. The fact that she is a female was enough controver sy to catch the medias attention. It was after the fact that we got to see the other levels of her personality. There was a brief panic in America with the beginning of the 2012 presidential race: Who was going to be Americas sweetheart now that Palin wasnt running? Thankfully, Michele Bachmann arrived on the scene. Bachmann is just another example of how important extremes are to this nation. If someone isnt making a scene, theyre not going to earn press. And I think we all know Bachmann likes a scene. Women in politics will not be listened to unless they are causing a ruckus that is a little absurd to me. Are we not past this yet? Can we just have female politicians, no questions asked? Instead, we are presented only with cartoons. Is that what we want our children to be exposed to? Its not fair that the only highly visible role models available are basically the worst ones. So, heres my apology: Sorry. Im sorry for the ladies and to the ladies. Im sorry that, as far as presidential candidates go, there arent often good examples to look up to. I wish that the loudest voices werent the only ones heard. thing a little one-sided. As you can see, I lean a certain way politically. I dont even think that matters in this case, though. Even if I belonged to the Republican Party, I would still feel mildly ashamed of the females representing me. This goes beyond whether or not I agree with their politics because that answer is easy: I am just legitimately saddened that two of the most talked-about females in these recent elections are poor role models. Maybe this is all to inspire the next generation to be better than using gender as a springboard for politics. It shouldnt matter what your gender is if your policies are a little nutty. Apology accepted? Sami Main is a journalism junior at UF. Her column appears on Tuesdays. Sami Mainletters@alligator.org

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Recently, a friend of mine, seemingly distraught, complained that Jon Stewarts frequent summer vacations left him repeatedly bereft of meaningful political insight and general news information. I berated him for neglecting the legitimate media. I explained that Stewart is a comedian, not a news anchor a wit, not a pundit. However, I realized that perhaps I had blamed the wrong person. Perhaps my friend was not at fault for relying on Stewart, but rather Stewart was for failing to care for those who had become dependent on him. It seemed that in watching Stewart week after week, my friend and those like him had gone from simply watching him on TV to looking up to him. He had become much more than the host of a late-night talk show. As students, this phenomenon should shock none of us. After semesters of exposure to a teacher, few among us can say that we have not come to rely on that persons regular presence in our lives and not just for their knowledge. Since weve become attached to these teachers, a week without their wisdom is noticeable. But should we put such a (perhaps parental) burden on these people, particularly Stewart? At what point do those that we look up to have to look back down at us? Does Stewart have some sort of moral and professional obligation to the people who watch him to provide a service he did not initially set out to provide? The Pew Research Center for the People and the Press conducted a poll in 2007 that asked Americans to name the journalist they most admired. Stewart came in fourth, tied with news anchors Brian Williams and Tom Brokaw of NBC, Dan Rather of CBS and Anderson Cooper of CNN. A 2009 poll by Time asked the question, Now that Walter Cronkite has passed on, who is Americas most trusted newscaster? Stewart, with 44 percent of the vote, beat out Brian Williams (29 percent), Charlie Gibson (19 percent) and Katie Couric (9 percent). Because my college-educated friend and so many Americans rely on Stewart for the news and trust him to provide it, perhaps he has a moral obligation to take up the reign as a consistent provider of reliable news. That is not to say that he needs to cease being a comedian, as the use of his wit is undoubtedly part of his appeal. Rather, he needs to make sure to deliver his act with consistency and accuracy. I recognize that the station that broadcasts The Daily Show is Comedy Central, not CNN. I simultaneously recognize, however, that Because Americans look up and listen to Stewart to such a degree, he has increased responsibility that makes the dependent viewer less to blame. It is important to note that Stewart makes it clear that he does not deliver accurate, unbiased news. It may be the case he needs to live up to that image. As Stewart often points out, legitimate news stations especially Fox News often report inaccurately. A discussion of general news biases is important but not relevant here. I do not condone the somewhat extreme predispositions of Fox News or MSNBC, but neither leaves room for the same level of cognitive dissonance that The Daily Show does; they deliver what is expected of them, consistently. Yes, my friend needs to subscribe to The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. He and many others need to diversify the sources from which they draw information and craft opinions. Simultaneously, the people who hold the ears school teachers ought to be nurturing, and Stewart ought to deliver credible, consistent reporting. Stewart ought to mix fact look up to him and take his word as truth. (And, in his absences, Stewart should hire a replacement host.)

So whats order to survive, no different than any other business; and by the end of September, its going to be hard up for cash. A recent article published in Gizmodo mentioned the Postal Service and its dilemma. It summarized this as, Not only are they going under, but theyre going under fast minus the life vest. According to the article, The postmaster general, Patrick Donahoe, might get rid of Saturday mail delivery, lay off 120,000 workers labor costs too much and revenue is down. Congress is having problems balancing its checkbook. We all know that. However, the bailout. The Postal Service is about to default on a payment of $5.5 billion. Personally, if that were my bar tab, Id be long gone by now. it may not seem so obvious. I do. My mail always reaches the correct destination, Im rarely overcharged, and its adamant about delivering those dreaded bill envelopes. My question here is really about after effects and thing of the past, what will be the proxy? According to The New York Times, Mail volume has plummeted with the rise of email, electronic bill-paying and a Web that makes everything from fashion catalogs to news instantly available. The system will handle an estimated 167 billion pieces of And so the debate goes: The Internet killed pen pals. Pen pals became email junkies, and it all became convenient. The Postal Service suffered greatly from this cyber Santa of opportuneness and the after effect: The whole shebang simply cost us more. Rather than playing the blame game, I ask: Where is the solution? Unbeknownst to some, the Postal Service is actually a necessity. By how much, Im not sure. Think about your grandparents. What if they arent keyboard savvy? Perhaps they dont have access to a computer, never mind if they know how to use one. How will those people function? And has anybody given thought to our troops overseas? They rely heavily on the Postal Service as a gateway to home. So yes, I guess we still need the Postal Service, perhaps in a quota that we can afford. The kind of quota that doesnt kill the messenger. Congress needs to empty its handbag and re-evaluate those nickels and dimes. Andrea Keating is a guest columnist for the Central Florida Future at UCF.

TYLER JETTAlligator Staff WriterLaFAYETTE, Ga. Keri ONeil is a heavy sleeper; few distur bances get her up and moving. But at 5 a.m. on Feb. 12, lying on the maroon carpet in Room 108 of the Key West Inn, all it took was a slight shake of the foot. Do you want to go some place really cool with me? Grant Lockenbach asked. What? The room was still dark as eight other UF students slept through the conversation. They had come to LaFayette, Ga., to spend the day exploring caves. Come on, he said. Ive been up for more than an hour. Theres this really cool place I want to go. Just come with me. Lockenbach had checked into the hotel at 11:40 the night before, though nobody went to sleep until 3 a.m., when the second half of the group arrived from Gainesville. This morning marked ONeil and Lockenbachs 20th day as a couple, and she had already grown used to her boyfriends impulsiveness. When the two couldnt decide on an apONeils house and asked her to hop in his beat-up green Volvo. He drove to Ben Hill Grifjust talking. It was a weeknight in January, and Lockenbach had to get up at 5 a.m. for ROTC training. He didnt care. They talked for hours. Fellowship of Christian Athletes as freshmen in until Keris twin, Michele, started dating one of Lockenbachs best friends in the summer of 2010. While on a religious fast at the beginning of this year, Lockenbach thought he heard God telling him to date Keri. He wrote her a poem, needed to think about it. that were supposed to be dating, he said. On the morning of Feb. 12, she agreed to sneak out of the hotel. Lockenbach, who stood 6-feet tall, 175 pounds with a strong jaw and socks. About 15 minutes later, she sat shoeless overlooking LaFayette, a rural Georgia town 101 miles northwest of Atlanta with a population of about 8,000 and a billboard appealing to didnt care about losing sleep. He wanted to watch the sun rise. The only problem was neither of them knew which direction to look or when the sun would actually come up. They sat. They talked. They waited. And, two hours later, shivering in the dim, 28-degree morning, they left. Within 10 minutes, as they drove down the bach pulled a 10-point turn and gunned his car back up. What were we thinking? he asked, frustrated with his own impatience. Its not like the sun just wasnt going to rise today. Michael Pirie heard screams, but he didnt hear words. Nobody did. It was 2 p.m., and Pirie stood with eight others at the ledge of a 125-foot pit. The group was hoping for a fun weekend surveying Pigeon Mountain. But now, standing on that ledge amid the darkness of Ellisons Cave, they were desperate to decipher Lockenbachs voice. Each member of the group was part of FCA, and Lockenbach was the president. He was the most experienced caver one of the only experienced cavers, in fact. A thrill-seeker, Lockenbach started cave diving three years ago. During the 2010-2011 school roommate Aaron McPhail said. Two weeks ear lier, Lockenbach led a group to Tumbling Rock Cave in Jackson County, Ala. Before that, on his way back from New York after a New Years Eve trip, Lockenbach and his friends explored PettyJohns, one of about 60 caves inside Pigeon Mountain. Lockenbach was a member of the univer sitys ROTC, trained to parachute from planes and rappel out of helicopters. He belonged to a local rock-climbing gym, where he once chatted with his mother on the phone while hanging upside-down. He dropped the phone, and her ears were greeted with a thud. students explored a separate part of Ellisons Cave while Lockenbach and Pirie rigged ropes at the Warm Up Pit. In the process, a black High them. The bag held ropes and other climbing gear, so Lockenbach went down to retrieve it. Now, minutes later, Pirie and the rest of the group listened intently. For whatever reason, Lockenbachs voice was not reaching them bouncing off the rocks. Or maybe he couldnt compete with the sound of the waterfall. lier, and cold water ran through the cave toward the pits. During their exploration, the other eight students had, at times, been waist-deep. man from Oviedo, and Lockenbach, a sociology junior from DeLand, split from the rest of the group. During a three-day weekend retreat in January to Gatlinburg, Tenn., Lockenbach told other upperclassmen that Pirie could one day become the FCA president. Most members of the group hardly knew Pirie before the trip. He played bass in the 29-member UF drumline, and he spent eight hours a week at practice during the fall. But come more involved with FCA. In Tennessee, he became Magic Mike after surprising people with card illusions (Tricks are for kids; I do illusions, he once wrote in a document on his computer). As a senior at Lake Highland Prepatory the previous year, Pirie had been president of Project Magic, the and low-income communities. He cut women into thirds and reattached them. He used metamorphosis to switch places with a friend padlocked inside a mail bag. He had mastered the teleportation box. But his specialty was sleight of hand. He was named Mr. Lake Highland Prep after turning one students card into ash, rubbing it on both sides of his forearm and exposing a message reading, The Luckily, someone had a deck in Tennessee. He did this one trick where he pulled a card out of nowhere. It was like some David Blaine stuff. For real, dude. Lockenbach was just as impressed by Magic Mikes commitment to FCA. Pirie played drums in the worship team during Wednesday night services and was at Bible study every Monday. ished a three-week religious fast, Pirie showed up at the celebration just to be with them. with scoops of ice cream in between. Pirie ate syrup just because someone said, You wont. Pirie was 5-foot-9 and 152 pounds, and his brown hair seemed to always stay perfect, combed left to right. He liked wakeboarding, snowboarding and sets. He invented Tip the Hat, Kick the Cat. He told friends in FCA he would massage a sleeping girls bare feet if he lost a bet. He won the bet. He did it anyway. Theyre the same person. Mike is like the freshman version of Grant, said Michele ONeil, who stood beside Pirie in Ellisons Cave. The group knew Lockenbach needed help, so three students sprinted down the mountain to call 911. They had brought a cellphone into the cave for emergencies, but it sat at the bottom of the pit. Pirie and the rest of the students who stayed in the cave heard bits of Lockenbachs screams. He yelled for Pirie. They tried to explain a rescue team was coming, tried to tell him to stay calm for just a little longer. In a half hour, they said, the rescue team will be here. But their voices werent reaching him, and Lockenbach kept calling for Michael, kept telling him he needed help. The group needed a liaison, someone who could calm Lockenbach as they waited for the rescue team. A girl volunteered, but Pirie rebuffed her. Can you pray for me? he asked. Because I have no idea what Im doing. He then strapped on a white helmet and descended. He didnt rappel, a woman in the group later remembered. He basically just fell down the pit. Were OK, Pirie yelled from somewhere below. Were just cold. At the ledge, Keri ONeil prayed. God, save them. Comfort them. Pigeon Mountain forms the right half of a V with Lookout Mountain, and the two fuse at the northwestern corner of Georgia. The former occupies about 20,000 acres and reaches an altitude of about 2,300 feet. It lies on the TennesseeAlabama-Georgia line, a North American spelunking Mecca. Every year, 10,000 cavers come to the mountain. Nobody knows when people started investigating the intestines of Pigeon Mountain, but historians found ads more than a century old persuading readers to explore PettyJohns Cave. Ellisons is one of the most popular spots among experienced cavers looking for a challenge, most notably because of Fantastic Pit and its 586-foot drop the deepest caving pit in the continental The Crockford-Pigeon Mountain Wildlife Management Area is located off Georgia Highway 193, but even from LaFayette it can be difdesired entrance, an inexperienced caver can easily get lost. When hiking toward PettyJohns, for example, a path can form in the minds eye only to disappear steps later among the rocks and wrinkled brown leaves that swallow each step. If hikers turn left, they may think they took a wrong turn. They will try to turn back before For Lockenbach, this was a proper sport, a sport untouched by man-made attraction. There are no real rules, only suggestions. The rocks are the boundaries. Caving is not a sport in the sense of winning and losing. There is no race to the top, no medal for exploring the deepest pits. And the danger, unlike in most traditional sports, is always real. According to the 1986 and 2008, there were reports worldwide of 394 cavers falling, 162 being stranded or trapped, 169 being hit by falling rocks, 100 getting lost and 49 suffering from But this trip was not about danger or, really, any type of discovery for Lockenbach. He doesnt plan trips because he loves caving, said Dustin Gill, one of his roommates. He plans trips because he wants to get to know people. Gill was not supposed to go to LaFayette with Lockenbach and Aaron McPhail, his other roommate. hadnt even started. But when a car showed up at 7 p.m. on Friday to pick up McPhail Lockenbach and others left around noon Gill decided to go, too. You could knock out two pages in the hotel room, his friends convinced him. He scrambled to pack a bag, and 10 minutes later, he was riding in Michele ONeils blue 2005 Ford Escape. Like the others in his group, Gill did not rearrived at the Warm Up Pit. He could hear yelling, but the only words he understood were, Help! and Im stuck! McPhail and another man started walking back to the parking lot to call for assistance, but Gill continued to hear Lockenbachs screams ate than anyone originally thought. He bolted down the mountain. Gill and Lockenbach met in Mrs. Adneys third grade class at Woodward Avenue Elemenjust moved from Atlanta. Both students were in the schools gifted program, and they were in the same classes for three straight years. They had grown up climbing trees and eating Chinese plums. In Gainesville, Lockenbach would pop his head in Gills room to bum cookie dough or instigate debates with questions like, What would Karl Marx think about Walmart? Reaching the bottom of Pigeon Mountain, Gill dialed 911 at 2:19 p.m. He tried to remain calm, but he struggled to catch his breath. His voice cracked. Its just one guy who is down there and cant get back up, he said, unaware of what Pidown there. Theres water. We cant hear anyhelp. Were OK. Were just cold, Pirie continued to tell whoever could hear him. It was 3:30 p.m. He had been in the pit for half an hour, and he still didnt know when the rescue team would arrive. He told Lockenbach they would soon be safe, and he kept yelling to Keri, letting her know they were hanging on. But the panic in Piries voice betrayed him. Grant! he yelled. Pirie repeated the name twice more Grant! Grant! his voice growing louder, more desperate each time. Keri asked Pirie if her boyfriend was OK, knowing the truth before the words escaped her mouth. Pirie did not lie, electing instead to misinterpret the question. a different question. stopped asking questions. When the three-man Initial Response Task Force arrived at 3:58 p.m., she left with the two other women who had stayed in the cave. As she walked into the light, Keri cried, sure she would never see her boyfriend again. in the gravel parking lot at the base of Pigeon Mountain at 3:11 p.m., about an hour after Gill emergencies demand a long response time. A rescue team isnt sitting together at a pospring into action when needed. Chuck Waters, the regional supervisor of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, was at the mall when he received the call. In all, the rescue team consisted of 34 memsources, six from Walker County Emergency Once members of the team had assembled, they still had to march one mile to the cave, located 850 feet above the parking lot. The Initial Response Task Force started the hike at 3:20 p.m. They reached the Warm Up Pit about 40 where Lockenbach and Pirie were suspended about 80 feet down. Pirie was below Lockenbach, his head resting on his own right shoulder and his helmet hanging by a string. Piries left arm was extended, a thick black rope wrapped around his wrist. That rope was entangled with another. When the rescue team found him, LockenHis arms were stretched out, his face tilted toward the sky. Nobody knows exactly what happened to of the rescue team think his rope was too short for the 125-foot pit. Others say the ropes length ver once he became trapped in the waterfall. Water running down the pit came from the nearby snow that had just started melting. Its temperature was in the high 30s or low 40s. Cavers are instructed to wear three layers of clothing in such conditions. Lockenbach was wear ing a blue Florida Gators T-shirt, Pirie a black long-sleeved shirt and khaki shorts. When the rescue team found him, Lockenbach had been in the waterfall for more than two hours, Pirie for about half as long. According to the autopsy report, it is possible that one or both of them experienced cold shock response. With their bodies submerged in water of that temperature, they could have hyperventilated for up to three minutes. Both men would have eventually recovered. Body temperature normally rests at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit; hypothermia occurs when it dips below 95. In 40-degree water, it can take effect in 10 to 20 minutes, but Lockenbach and Pirie werent fully submerged, likely delaying the process. Once hypothermia sets in, howevthe core of the body, away from the extremities, causing loss of coordination. The heart and the nervous system and other organs stop functioning correctly, and speech is slurred, and confusion sets in. Breathing becomes slow. It becomes shallow. Organs soon fail; it just becomes a matter of which one stops But well before any organ failed, well before the nearly ice-cold water overwhelmed Pirie pension Trauma. As you hang in a harness, blood begins to build up in your legs. If you can move around and shift your weight, the blood will continue to circulate. But if you stop moving, your circulation shock. Your pulse increases. You breathe faster. You feel sick. You sweat. You shiver. You become anxious. Eventually, you faint. When the rescue team found the bodies, they also found two lights shining: a headlamp on a nearby ledge and a Mini Maglite 40 feet below. Would God ever ask you to jump off a cliff? Jason Mills posed that question to the FCA freshmen Bible study group in his living room one Monday night. tian novel. In the book, Mack, the protagonist, takes his daughters on a camping trip. He tells them about a princess who jumped off a cliff to cure her tribe of a disease. His daughter wondo the same. Mack said no. God would never do that. thought to himself, This kid is not confused. He knows what his faith demands of him. Five days later, Pirie rappelled down the Warm Up Pit inside Ellisons Cave. I had no idea how literal that question would be in Michaels life, Mills told a group of friends the night after Pirie died. Pirie would have turned 19 on June 18; Lockenbach was just one week shy of his 21st birthday. But in the weeks following their deaths, a theme emerged at funerals and campus memorial services: They simply were not meant to grow old. Forever, they will be the kids who invented extreme swinging on middle school playgrounds. Forever, they will be the ones who show they cared. Dustin Gill and Aaron McPhail, who both lived with Lockenbach, said they are recovering as best they can. They live in the same house this year. They rented out Lockenbachs room to a friend. Its just a room. Its not Grant. Imagine a staircase with the bottom being despair and the top being accepting reality, Gill said. Im doing OK because Im going up the steps. The steps hurt. Going back to the hotel that night, that hurt. Driving his car back to Gainesville the next morning, that hurt. But as long as I keep moving up the steps and not going back, Im doing OK. The week after the trip, Keri ONeil would not eat unless someone placed food in front of her. The idea of standing up and walking across good reason. Every night, almost every hour, on the hour, she woke up. After her boyfriend woke her with a slight shake of the foot in Room 108 of the Key West Inn, Keri ONeil became a light sleeper. § ALLIGATOR, 9 8, ALLIGATOR § What Faith Demands Courtesy to the AlligatorGrant Lockenbach, 20, a sociology junior and president of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, led a group of UF students on a cave exploration trip in LaFayette, Ga.

Submit questions on Twitter: @alligatorSports alligatorSports PodcastTom Green and Matt Watts join host Greg Luca to bring you another action-packed podcast breaking down Floridas win against Tennessee on Saturday. Check it out on iTunes or at alligatorSports.org. Brett Le Blanc / Alligator Staff TYLER JETTAlligator Staff WriterFloridas offense has thrived from the opening act in each game, in part because the players have received simple instructions: follow the script. Offensive coordinator Charlie Weis has orchestrated the Gators initial plays well in advance this year, holding meetings with quarterback John Brantley about 24 hours before kickoffs to ley the plays he wants to run, in order, and Brantley lets his coach know if he feels uncomfortable with anything on the script. Its a really good idea, Brantley said Monday. It gives you a chance to look at what youre running to get familiar with it. Its real important going into a game. Florida has scored on each of its three opening drives this year, including a nine-play, 80-yard series ending in a touchdown Saturday against Tennessee. In all, the Gators have outscored opLast season, Florida outscored opponents 56-48 in the opening quarter. Roberson passes test: Facing a produccollege career, freshman cornerback Mar cus Roberson helped limit Tennessee to 288 passing yards about 50 yards shy of the Vols season average. Coach Will Muschamp said Roberson does a good job of jamming receivers at the line and getting between the ball and its intended target. Once the ball is in the air, Roberson attacks it. He jumped a slant route in the third quarter Saturday for what back as Roberson was charged with a questionable pass interfer ence. He works hard at practice, Muschamp said. He has good retention day in, day out for what we do and how we do it. Ive been very pleased with his progress. While the Gators defensive backs received praise for keeping the Vols hyped air attack in check, Muschamp said his team sSEE NOTEbBOOK, Pa A GE 16 KELLY PRICEAlligator WriterST.

After going up against some of the nations best talent during the summer combine season, Maye has received plenty of hate mail regarding his choice to play at Holy Trinity rather than a larger Melbourne public school in a competitive class. I decided to go to the Holy Trinity School because it was a college preparatory school, and then football was just, you know, there, he said. I felt like I needed to get away from certain things and be around the right people to keep focused and maintain that right my friends who go to public school. I just take it and run with it. I feel like I dedicate myself hard enough to where wrong.

In addition to his well-publicized dance moves, Dominique Easley turned heads by often than not Saturday. Matt Elams interception that sealed the victory will be replayed time and again, but he also made headlines for Twitter barbs exchanged with Vols receiver DaRick Rogers. All Jon Bostic and Jelani Jenkins do is show up and make plays. The unsung heroes of Floridas defense, Bostic led the team with eight tackles against Tennessee, and Jenkins was second with six. Both linebackers also picked up a sack of quarterback Tyler Bray, and the Gators held the Vols to minus-9 yards rushing the best effort by Floridas defense since the 2006 Tennessee game (minus-11). The (defensive) linemen did a great job of keeping the offensive linemen off of me, and I give all my praise to them, Jenkins said after the win. Quiet and modest in interviews, Jenkins and Bostic come alive on Saturdays. While Easley, Jaye Howard and the rest of the defensive front play a large role, they also need reliable talent behind them. Together, the unit has limited opponents to 92 yards rushing through three games, tops in the nation.

In this brief moment of celebration, one of Florida high school footballs most unasline for dropping the ball before crossing the goal line. A St. Pete Catholic defender recovered the fumble in the end zone for a touchback. So Maye lined up again, this time on defense, just to watch the opposing of the night. He expressed no reaction.

For the seventh straight game in the series, the team that won the rushing battle won the game; and again, that team was Florida. Despite all the attention on Bray and the Gators inexperienced secondary leading up to the game, it all came down to basics: run the ball and stop the run. All throughout two-a-days and even here in the spring, that was an emphasis we wanted to make, Bostic said. We want to stop the run. We want to be one of the most physical defenses in the country. He said the defenses ranking is unimportant. What is important is making the opposition one-dimensional. Jenkins agreed, saying how Florida started the game set the tone. rest of the way. That forces them to try to get points and they start forcing the ball in the air a lot more, Jenkins said. including Elams exclamation point as time was running out in the fourth quarter.
