ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterThis summer, one of Gainesvilles oldest fan shops will transform into a modern, music-thumping bar. For 28 years, Gator Shops walls were lined with UF paraphernalia: T-shirts, toddler cheerleading uniforms and national championship posters from the Urban Meyer era even tins of coffee grounds with Albert and Alberta printed on the label. Now, its a bare, broken-down space that will be home to a new Midtown bar by summertime. On March 4, the family-owned store, located on the corner of the UF Plaza at Midtown closed its doors. The business wont close forever, though, said Amy Ritch, a partial owner of Gator Shop. She said the family would like to reopen the shop on Archer Road or Newberry Road, but it has not found a location. The online store, gatorshop.com, will continue to do business. J.D. Chester, owner of Munchies 420 Cafe, is subleasing the 2,100-square-foot space from the store owners. Construction on the new bar, which Chester said will be named Four Twenty, has already begun. He hopes to open it in June or July. He said he is turning it into a classy bar for students. I always see all these girls in nice dresses and high heels walking through Midtown, and they wind up standing on tables, Chester said. This bar will be different. increased in 2009, Ritch said. The store is in the heart of an area that is known for its college nightlife. It just wasnt feasible to sell T-shirts there any-Gator Shop closes its doors to make way for bar ABOUT 100 CHEATED.

If it does, Gainesville business owners believe the change will be a draw for more downtown outdoor concerts and events. The amended ordinances would allow the sale and consumption of alcohol in a parking lot at Southwest First Avenue and Northwest Second Street. Tony Weinbender, founder of Fest, an annual three-day music festival in Gainesville, told the Gainesville Public Safety Committee on Feb. 29 that if the city OKs the sale of alcohol in a downtown parking lot, he would hold a new event in that location in the middle of May. During Thursdays meeting, the commission will also discuss allowing outdoor food vendors to keep their businesses open until 3 a.m. instead of 11 p.m. Jeff Babik, owner of a food truck on University Avenue in downtown Gainesville, said in a proposal he wrote to the commission that most of his income comes from young adults who go to downtown and Midtown bars. He said the dense food sold by the trucks It is debatable, Babik said in the proposal, but many would say that these food vendors drunk drivers by putting food in their stomachs.

TUESDAY, MARCH 13, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 TECHNOLOGY KELLY PRICEAlligator Contributing WriterWhen Joey Sasvari graduated from UFs Entrepreneurship Masters program in 2009, he wanted to start a business and save the world. Sasvari imagined a social game like Facebooks FarmVille that lets users control a virtual African village. The idea became Raise the Village, a free iPhone application that delivers aid to Ugandan village Kapir Atira. When users spend money, it goes directly to the village. Sasvari and Cameron MacMillan, another UF Entrepreneurship graduate, formed New Charity Era in 2010. They brought on former classmate and Ugandan native Biko Evarist. Then the team went to Uganda. Evarist gave Sasvari and MacMillen village tours in March 2010, and they assessed village needs. They chose Kapir Atira as the recipient of aid from the game. Sasvari, New Charity Era COO, remembered the villagers smiles. What was amazing, I thought, was they were all so nice and happy, he said. And you would think the way and lifestyle in which they live every day, you would come across some people that were in a bad mood. 2010, the game was featured under Whats New. It has been downloaded more than 300,000 times, Sasvari said. His favorite feature is the constant visual updates users receive about how their money is spent. Raise the Village has funded four deliveries of food, supplies and scholarships to Kapir Atira villagers, totaling about $5,000. The team only buys goods from Uganda to help its economy. Evarist is in charge of deliveries. Renata Serra, lecturer in economics and development for UFs Center for African Studies, was impressed when she learned about Raise the Village. Im fascinated by the whole concept of making an app with social implications, she said. At the same time, I think we have to be careful not to let consumers think that just by buying an app you can change the world. New Charity Era is developing a Facebook version of the game, which should be released in July, said MacMillan, the organizations CEO.Grads make app to support village THE FIRST EVENT IS WEDNESDAY. SHELBY WEBBAlligator Contributing WriterThis March marks the countrys 24th Womens History Month. The Womens Student Association will host multiple events to celebrate, including a global business etiquette seminar and the second Masculine Mystique Panel. Annie Boggs, WSAs Womens History Month director, said this is UFs 17th year celebrating the month. will host is the second annual Masculine Mystique Panel, which will take place Wednesday at 7 p.m. Boggs said a panel of male students will gather in Ustler Hall to talk about womens issues, masculinity taboos such as showing emotion in public and pressure to perspectives on dating. WSA will also host a global business etiquette seminar called the Global Dish at 7 p.m. on March 20 in Ustler Hall. Speakers will instruct people how to greet professionals from other countries and how to bridge the cultural divide in business. Boggs said that though this is after replacing the Womens Leadership Council, the organization is looking forward to a productive Womens History Month. There isnt an emphasis on womens events the rest of the year, she said. Its the one month when womens issues are forefront on campus.UF celebrates 17th Womens History Month Im fascinated by the whole concept of making an app with social implications.Renata Serralecturer in economics and development for UFs Center for African Studies

can receive if they accept responsibility is 75 percent. If students do not accept responsibility, they will be referred to the Dean of Students and the Student Conduct Committee. Computer science and engineering students Nuri Yeralan, 28, and Jason Chi, 29, compiled the data. Yeralan teaches 250 students in his class. I took it a little personal, he said. I even begged my students not to cheat. It kind of sucks. Yeralan said he warned students one week before the exam about the project markers through in-class announcements and on the course website. freshman, said she plans to accept responsibility. But she will challenge the penalty, she said, because students cheated in years past. Im really angry at the fact that students got away with this in earlier semesters, she said. We are taking the hit, and I believe that is unfair.Highest grade possible for students is a 754, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, MARCH 13, 2012Emily Doyle / AlligatorBelow the BeltVisitors enjoy the opening of the MASS Visual Arts semi-annual art show at the Top Secret Space on Saturday. The exhibit showcases artwork presenting interpretations of the theme, Below the Belt. It will be open Saturdays from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Sundays noon to 6 p.m. until the closing reception on March 30. For more information, visit massvisualarts.org. Business down since last championshipmore, she said. The space demands more business. A bar or a restaurant will bring that business in. Chester said he has been planning on opening a bar in the area for the past few months. He has already purchased 10 frozen drink machines, so frozen alcoholic beverages like strawberry daiquiris and pia coladas will be on the drink menu. There will also be a martini bar and an adjacent counter where beer and liquor will be served. The new establishment will also have a dance front, Chester said. Patrons will be able to walk upstairs to Munchies 420 Cafe to buy food. Since Gator Shop has been a home away from home for Ritch and her family for the past three decades, she said she wished a bar didnt have to take its spot. Sport success also plays into how much money the store makes. She said business has been tough since 2008 the last time the Gators won a national football championship. Joe Fincher, Ritchs father and another part owner of the store, bought Gator Shop in 1984. It was the only Gators fan shop located in Midtown. Neither Gators Plus nor the Florida Book Store existed at the time. The store was originally located two stores north in the UF Plaza, where Pita Pit is now, but Fincher moved Gator Shop to its current location in 1986. The family has run it ever since. Finchers three daughters graduated from UF. Two married football players from the 1996 national championship football team. Loyal customers said they will miss Gator Shop and its fandom. Gator alumni Lester and Vicky Rachel were driving through Gainesville on March 4 when they stopped in to buy some merchandise and heard the news. The faithful ones always get left behind, said Lester Rachel, 40. Its not like Gainesville really needs another bar around here. Gator Shop owners said they look forward to their next chapter but will miss spending time in the store. Every Friday and Saturday night, Ritch said, the family would take shifts sitting in the store while intoxicated students heading to and from the bars stumbled in to use the ATM. We called it the show, she said. Well miss watching the show. Contact Adrianna Paidas at apaidas@alligator.org. SHOP, from page 1 CHEA T, from page 1 THE MAN WAS CHARGED WITH DOMESTIC BATTERY. ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterA police academy graduate was arrested on charges of domestic battery Sunday after he hit his girlfriend and sent her threatening text messages. Carlston Watts, 20, got into a dispute with his situation. The two live together and have a child, according to a Gainesville Police arrest report. GPD spokeswoman Cpl.

Watts followed her and hit Merritt on her head, leaving a large lump, according to the report. Merritt spent the night at her mothers apartment. Throughout the night, Watts sent Merritt what she believed were threatening text messages, so she called the police the next morning, Valuri said. Watts declined to comment, and Merritt did not return a call for one. Police arrested Watts at 10:45 a.m. He told the the Santa Fe College Institute of Public Safety Law Enforcement Degree program in December 2011, according to SFC General Counsel Patti Locascio.

Gail L. Kelly, 42, was driving behind Ray when he cut her off. Unable to stop the car in time, Kelly hit him. Ray suffered severe head trauma, and paramedics drove him to Shands at UF. About six hours later, he died. The crash was still under investigation Monday afternoon, though Kelly probably wont be charged, GPD spokeswoman Cpl. Angelina Valuri said. Winston Gibson, 65, used to live with Ray at The 400, a high-rise for the elderly on Northwest First Avenue that is owned by the Gainesville Housing Authority. Most didnt know him as Henry Ray, though. Those at The 400 called him Wine. He loved to drink and smoke cigars, Gibson said. Wine would talk to almost anybody about almost anything. He loved to lounge in The 400s lobby or hold court at the nearby bus stop, telling anyone who would listen about the women he had been with, Gibson said. He would hang out, get a little bit tipsy and start talkin to everybody, Gibson said. Esaw Durant, 82, said he would worry when he watched Wine ride his bike.

BRASCHAlligator WriterResidents recently resurrected a debate about whether Mayor Craig Lowes aide was hired under proper circumstances. At a City Commission meeting March 1, Gainesville residents disagreed with the decision to hire Garrett Garner in 2010 and to give him a pay raise in 2011. They said the job was not advertised, and the position didnt exist Lowe countered, saying the temporary employee hiring process was fair and done according to policy. The mayor needs to hire someone he knows to be competent, trustworthy and dedicated to the community, Lowe said. His position is rock-solid. Garner said the citys human resources department contacted him shortly after Lowe wasnt an interview. He said he didnt know if anyone else was competing for the job. He is paid $22.06 per hour. Opponents say the job wasnt advertised and that Garner was hand-picked after Lowes election. Resident Juanita Miles Hamilton said this is an issue about breaking from policy, rather than an attack at Garner himself. All those policies are in place for a reason, so all applicants have a chance, she said. And thats just not what happened. Lowe said the criticism is simply post-elecsupporters of candidates he didnt back in the recent city election. Their candidates lost. My candidates won, he said. And they are mad. Garner, 25, graduated from UF in 2009 with a degree in history, and he completed minors in environmental science and urban and regional planning. He is engaged and owns a basset hound mix named Maya, after Maya Angelou. Garner was Lowes campaign manager in 2010 when Lowe ran for mayor. Lowe said its a common practice to hire a mayors aide and that Garner has proven indispensable during his term. Lowe said Tallahassees mayor has three aides, Miami Beachs has two aides and the mayor of Chapel Hill, N.C., has one. He said Garner has helped him deal with the Quran-burning controversy, sift through issues surrounding the Cabot-Koppers Superfund site, boost Southwest Second Avenue economically and double the out of the Gainesville Regional Airport. Garner started talks with different businesses to bring them to town, he said, including Totuit. Lowe said Garner researches issues, goes to meetings on his behalf and helps to expand the citys economy. Garner said he also helps the mayor by reviewing meeting agendas. He said his background makes him a great Garner said his grandmother worked for the South Carolina Department of Social Ser vices and his grandfather was a police ser geant in Florence, S.C., setting an example of the importance of public service. Hearing about his mothers job as a computer software programmer around the dinner table sparked his interest for technology, he said, which meshes well with Lowes vision of a high-tech economy in Gainesville. Those who question the hiring process say they want the issue reassessed. Miles Hamilton, along with three others, spoke at the March 1 meeting about how Gar ner was hired. I am just concerned about the violation of city policy, she said. She said the worst part is that now that position cant be taken by a Gainesville city employee, and she said processes like this dont promote upward mobility. Garner said he deals with the criticism by putting his mind on his work. I have learned not to focus on the criticism, Garner said.

Letters to the Editor TUESDAY, MARCH 13, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Tiemeiers apology does not inspire faith in Student GovernmentFormer Senate President pro tempore Jason Tiemeiers apology, while well overdue, leaves much to be desired. During the days leading up to the election, Tiemeier denied the accusation that he threw away newspapers containing a Students Party endorsement, claiming he was asleep at the time of the incident. Tiemeier mentioned Sen. Katie Waldmans presence in his apology, identifying her to the Student Body as Waldman, ironically the vice chairman of the rules and ethics committee in the Senate, evidently did nothing to stop Tiemeier from disposing of the newspapers and neglected to mention her involvement in this scandal. In his apology, Tiemeier calls for students to have faith in the integrity of UF Student Government, a call that we feel Senate president and president pro tempore, but after this inciword? was throwing away newspapers and did nothing to expose the truth? video saying the Alligator was falsifying stories? truth when he said that neither Tiemeier nor anyone in the Unite Party was involved in the newspaper disposal? It is impossible for students to tell where the lies stop and the truth begins. As long as these individuals continue to be in dent Senate and the rest of Student Government. We encourage all individuals involved to come clean. The Student Body deserves nothing less than an honest and transparent Student Government.

The leaders disagreed, however, on what line Iran would have to cross before the allies would resort to military force. As long as schedules exists, Israel should feel reassured of Americas support for its right to defend itself. America reserves the right to independently determine the terms of its military engagements. We should respect Israels right to the same. To be certain, the Iranian regime is hurting from international sanctions. Irans economy is collapsing.

BLAINE KRIVACEKAlligator Contributing WriterDr. Pedro Jose Greer will speak about the plight of the underprivileged as seen through the eyes of a medical doctor at 6 p.m. in Pugh Hall. The presentation, titled Rx for Hope: Medical Care for the Homeless, is free and open to the public. Greer, a UF alumnus, has worked for two White House administrations, and earned the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He is now the assistant dean of academic affairs at the Florida International Universitys Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine. Greer has made it a focus in his career to be socially responsible, especially to those who are poor or homeless. I believe professionals need to take on more responsibility, Greer said. As a doctor, I see how poverty really affects people. After graduating from medical school, Greer said he originally wanted to travel to places such as South Asia and Africa to help the impoverished. However, after an encounter with a homeless man here in the United States, he realized the problem was closer to home. His hope, he said, is that one day the rich and the poor will be treated the same when it comes to medical care. Shelby Taylor, the digital and communications director at the Bob Graham Center for Public Service, said the center is hosting Greer because he is an example of an alumnus who has used his talents to improve lives in his community. I hope I get people to think and challenge their assumptions, Greer said. I also hope to get a few laughs. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSNEW YORK Oh, you pretty things. Just look at the mama giraffe nuzzling a baby giraffe, that lovely idea for an indoor planter made of mason jars and those perfectly cooked bacon strips cooling on a plate. This is what people are circulating on Pinterest, the latest website-of-the-moment for sharing things you love. Clean and simple to use, Pinterest attracts people who need to organize the chaos of Internet-age information overload. It serves as the Web, a place to post fashion inspirations, decorating aspirations and more. Its a digital dream collage, a recipe box and a corkboard full of magazine clippings all at once. The sites popularity has exploded in recent months, making it one of the fastestgrowing websites in history. Its ascent to 10 million monthly visitors happened faster than Facebook, Twitter or any other site tracked by comScore. What makes Pinterests surge unusual is that its driven not by the usual geek crowd of young men from New York and San Francisco, but by women, many of whom live in the Midwest and the central U.S. Pinterests co-founder Ben Silbermann will speak this week at the South by Southwest Interactive festival in Austin, Texas. As part of a Q&A session Tuesday, hell explain Pinterests rapid growth outside of Silicon Valley and discuss the companys long-term goals. The cascade of images shared on any given day ranges from quirky nail art to a shirtless Ryan Gosling to ephemeral nature scenes. Clicking on an image can take you to a recipe or a blog post, or at times, an empty page. Unlike other startups, whose early users tend to be men under 35, Internet tracking Pinterest users are women, and these women other words, not only are there more women on Pinterest but they are much more active than men. Rebecca Lieb, an analyst with the Altimeter Group, believes part of the reason that Pinterests early adopters are less geeky than usual is that there is, literally, nothing to adopt. Theres nothing to download and no complex controls to master. You simply log in and pin. Pinterests creators registered Pinterest. com in 2009, but it didnt take off until last million U.S. visitors last month, up about 50 percent from 11.7 million in January. In another sign its made a mark, Pinterest has already spawned parody. The gender discrepancy is probably why someone thought to create Manteresting.com, a site that looks just like Pinterest but for dudes. Instead of pinning images, you nail them. Instead of puppy photos and cupcakes, there are Star Wars references, beer and sneakers. the women of Manteresting wear as little as possible. ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, MARCH 13, 2012AP PhotoThis screen shot shows a page from Pinterest. The sites surge in popularity is driven by women who live in the Midwest and the central U.S. They use photo-heavy Pinterest for fashion inspiration, wedding planning and home design, or just to post photos of puppies. NA TIONALInterest spikes in Pinterest, notably from Midwestern women THE FESTIVAL WILL BE SATURDAY. LORI PERRYAlligator Contributing WriterLions, tigers and elephants are coming to town this weekend.

The fair will have elephant rides from All About Elephants and lions and tigers from Single Vision, a Melrose endangered species educational company.

There will also be a rock-climbing wall, an archery range, A portion of Gainesville Community Fest proceeds will be donated to Kids Kicking Cancer. The event showcases about 100 of Gainesvilles businesses, dents to spend their money at locally owned stores, said Jordyn Reese, the festival director. Gainesville is such a thriving bubble, and we ourselves could easily self-sustain our city, Reese said.

Kemar Johnson, 29, and Hanna Davis, 26, were standing in front of the Palms Condominiums at 230 SW Second Ave. at about 1:30 a.m. when a pair of strangers approached them, according to a Gainesville Police report. The suspects remained at large as of Monday afternoon, police said. One of the suspects, wearing a red T-shirt, cocked his pistol sideways and pointed it at Johnson. The other suspect yanked Johnsons $1,200 white gold and diamond necklace off. Johnson then gave up his $3,000 diamond watch, according to GPD. The suspects also demanded Davis $7,500 engagement ring. When Davis refused, the suspect in the red T-shirt slapped her in the ger, according to the report. Both suspects then ran north. The suspect in the red T-shirt is about 5 feet 6 inches with gold teeth and dreadlocks, according to police. Anyone with information is urged to call GPD at 352-393-7500.

But if BASEBALL BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writerger role this year. It wouldnt be a hard feat to accomplish. As a freshman, Gibson took the mound just 14 times for a total of 10.1 innings. He tried to alter his throwing motion, and the result was an ERA of 13.06 and the helplessness that comes with watching opposing hitters bat .442. Looking for an answer, Gibson swapped more season and altered how he pitches from the stretch after learning in the Cape Cod League that he was tipping off his pitches. I feel a lot better, a lot more comfortable, the left-hander said. I get more tempo and can stay back a lot better. As No. 1 Florida (15-1) enters what is expected to be a bullpen duel with No. 7 Florida State (14-1) tonight at 7 at McKethan Stadium, Gibson is no longer a weakness. He is now one of the numerous strengths in a bullpen that is putting up big-time numbers. Gibson has already gotwith junior Austin Maddox and senior Greg Larson for the most appearances on the staff.

TUESDAY, MARCH 13, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 15 Stewart: This years team better than we should be in there. Going into this weekend, only senior center Azania Stewart and redshirt senior forward Ndidi Madu have NCAA Tournament experience. Stewart and Madu played for Florida when it lost to No. 1 seed and eventual national champion Connecticut in the second round in 2009. While the 2008-09 team stands as the best of Butlers tenure based on results, Stewart believes that this years squad is better. We actually have a chance to go deeper than we did my freshman year, Stewart said. We had a great team my freshman year, but I dont think our formance [was] as good. chances of making a deep run in the NCAA Tournament. eryones going to be watching it and you have a chance to show how hard youve worked all season and how you want go out and make a name for yourself.

February of last year when he worked 2.1 hitless innings with four strikeouts in a 3-2 victory against Florida Gulf Coast. Thats probably the best hes thrown since hes been a Gator, UF coach Kevin OSullivan said after the game. Awfully proud of him. Gibson and the rest of the bullpen have given OSullivan plenty of reasons to be happy as of late. During the Gators current 13game winning streak, relief pitchers have combined to throw 52.1 innings with just six earned runs, a 1.03 ERA and 63 strikeouts compared to 11 walks. They have aling that span and have not given up a run in the eighth or ninth inning all season. The strength in the pen will almost certainly come in handy dur ing tonights rivalry showdown. In the four meetings between Florida and Florida State last season, each team used a total of 22 pitchers. The Gators only had a pitcher last longer than 3.2 innings once, and only two Seminole pitchers passed that mark. In UFs only win in the 2011 series a 10-inning affair on March 15 the teams combined to use 15 pitchers, six of which failed to register a full inning of work. With freshman Bobby Poyner getting only his second career start against a team that is averaging eight runs per game, Gibson and friends will be on call. We have a lot of strong guys up front, Gibson said. Sully said from the beginning that Im going to have a big role this year for us to be successful. I like it. Im ready for it. As usual, the Seminoles will have answers of their own. Dur ing the same 13-game span, FSUs bullpen has allowed just 15 earned runs and struck out 51. Whether or not that is enough to match a line of pitchers that also happens to include Maddoxs 14.1 scoreless innings, 21 strikeouts and as last years team high) will be decided tonight. Neither bullpen has given up a lead all season. Let the pitching changes begin. 16, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, MARCH 13, 2012 David Carr / AlligatorIn eight innings of work for Florida this season, left-handed reliever Daniel Gibson has allowed just a single hit and zero earned runs. Gibson touts perfect ERA this season BASEBALL, from page 13 ELI MARGER Alligator WriterUndefeated in four matches of Southeastern Conference play, UFs second-ranked womens tennis team could say that its hot start is due to a team-wide effort. however, look no further than the top two singles spots. Allie Will and Lauren Embree have been Floridas best players this season. The juniors are ranked No. 1 and No. 23 in the country, respectively. What adds another dimension to the team, though, is the ability of these two players to be interchangeable at the top two spots in the lineup. Theyre just invaluable for us, and the fact that they buy into it and support each other and the team is all you need to know about their character, coach Roland Thornqvist said. In Mondays 7-0 win over bree played at the top singles spot, beating UKs Jackie Stiles 6-2, 6-0. Will played on court two, dispatching Khristina Blatime this season Embree has taken the top spot and Wills sixth time playing the two. For Embree and Will, their spot on the court has had no bearing on their quality of play. Will is 5-1 at the top spot and 5-0 at two, while Embree is 5-0 and 4-2 at those respective spots. While each players style differs, Thornqvist said that much of the reason they are interchangeable is because they are intrinsically alike. They have a different style, but both are fundamentally very similar in that theyre very athletic, tough and play big points really well, he said. The rest of the team, even though we dont say it, feeds off those two. Embree and Will each said switching their spot works well for the team. The Gators have two top players who can on matchups, something few other teams possess. Its really nice for both of us because were both playing really well, and its nice to have that balance, Embree said. Will said that the switching doesnt affect their play at all. Because of the nature of the Gators schedule, the two will be facing challenging opponents regardless of their placement on the court. Were both playing really well, and we can just switch up and down, Will said. Every team we play is very good at one and two, so it doesnt make a big difference. Were both just happy to be playing.Embree, Will lead at top as UF sweeps UKEmbree
