THURSDAY, APRIL 5, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterFlorida Sen. Bill Nelson met with his constituents Wednesday afternoon for a town hall meeting as part of his re-election campaign. Nelson spoke to a crowd of about 30 at the Florida Innovation Hub, berating state election law and urging bipartisanship in all levels of the government. Gainesville was one of at least 10 town hall stops the senator will make around Florida. Sen. Nelson and the city of Gainesville are certainly no strangers, Mayor Craig Lowe said. He checks in frequently to let us know what is going on in Washington and how that impacts us. We have a lot to thank him for. Nelson went on to rail against changes the Florida Legislature, which is mainly comprised of Republicans, made to the state election law. These measures include cutting early voting hours in at least half and disallowing voting on the Sunday before an election. He said research shows that Sunday is the time when most African Americans and Hispanics vote. Its hard for me to believe this is happening in 2012 in America, Nelson said. I thought we went through this in the right of access to the ballot during the civil rights battle. He expressed the need for bipartisanship. Frank Ogborn, audience member and mayor of Archer, agreed. Im a Republican. Hes a Democrat, Ogborn said. But, Im here anyway because weve got to work together.

MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WriterA group of Gainesville residents are suing Gainesville Regional Utilities to get a city power agreement thrown out. Gainesville Citizens CARE Inc., a nonagreement, said the city violated state public-meeting laws when signing an agreement to get power from a wood-burning Wednesday. The Gainesville City Commission signed a roughly $3 billion contract in 2009 to buy 30 years of power from the new plant, which will be owned by American Renewables. This contract is void because of the way it was done, said Jo Beaty, a board member of Gainesville Citizens CARE Inc. The public process has been violated throughout the whole approval of this. City Commissioner Thomas Hawkins said the accusation is incorrect and each step was done through public meetings. The complaint states the negotiations were not open to the public and the meeting notes were not available for residents to see. including changing the agreement from 20 years to 30 years, were made in private. been concerned about the agreement. The County Commission is considering using another utility provider for its buildings because the wood-burning plant would increase its utility bills. Residents are also concerned about utility bill increases a sentiment echoed by some City Commission candidates in the spring races. Hawkins said any new power plant would increase rates. He said the woodburning plant was the cheapest long-term option available to the city. Prices increase over time, he said. Its something that we have to deal with, and the way we deal with it is we work every day to keep our rates low. Contact Meredith Rutland at mrutland@ alligator.org. agreement violates state law

THURSDAY, APRIL 5, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 Aundre Larrow / Alligator StaffReema Alnuaimat, 4, holds Noah, a Madagascar hissing cockroach, as her sister, Salma, 3, looks on. The cockroaches were pulling toy tractors at BugFest Open House, an event put on by the entomology and nematology department, Wednesday evening. CREEPY CRA WL Y CRITTERS CAITLIN MANLEYAlligator Contributing WriterUFs Entomology Club gave people something to buzz about Wednesday night with its second annual BugFest Open House. About 500 students and Gainesvillearea residents gathered at Charles Steinmetz Hall on the south side of campus. The event aimed to promote entomology the study of insects and to recruit students to the major. Its a showcasing of the entomology department to get people to understand what entomology is and how it actually plays a great role in their lives, said Alyssa Porter, the events coordinator and a 22-year-old entomology senior. Visitors were able to tour the departments research facilities, talk to entomology advisers and professors, participate in Hollywood-themed games and competitions, and witness a live butter Games included cricket-spitting competitions, a cockroach race to the Oscars and Hollywood Walk of Fame maggot art. Live arthropods drew in visitors who held Madagascar hissing cockroaches and millipedes that can grow up to 2 feet long. Emperor scorpions and Chilean rosehair tarantulas were on display, but visitors were not allowed to handle them. Chris Thomas, a 20-year-old graphic design junior, said the cockroach races were his favorite part. You have your cockroach on the table, and you just guide them in the right direction, he said. I ended cutting the other cockroach off and came in for the win. The maggot art display maintained a crowd of about 20 people throughout the night. Attendees were able to dip live fruiteating maggots into paint, then watch them crawl around on star-shaped paper. received tickets to the Florida Museum as well as a food voucher for pizza. Academic information was available to students and highlighted the degree tracks within the entomology major, such as ecotourism, basic science, preprofessional and urban pest management. Thomas said one of his friends was able to get advice from a graduate student about what entomology class she should take next semester. Porter said the pre-professional degree track is a good option for students who want to go to medical, dental or veterinary school. It meets application requirements and can help make your application stand out from the hundreds of biology majors applying, she said.BugFest promotes entomology, recruits new students

A large part of the controversy surrounds a provision called the individual mandate, which would force every American to purchase some form of health insurance. Some of the comments made by Obama on Monday are unnecessary and worrying, especially coming from a former constitutional law professor. preme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress. mentators that for years what weve heard is the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law. unprecedented, extraordinary step, Obama is attacking the Supreme Court. By calling the nine most powerful judges in in an attempt to sway what is supposed to be an unbiased decision. Obamas preemptive strike took the form of his usual political calculations attacks disguised as commentary easily defended later as a mere analysis but clearly a form of masked coercion. It was a passive-aggressive attempt to inject his liberal viewpoint in what should otherwise be an objective decision based on the Constitution of the United States. elected group of people is exactly what our Founding Fathers intended. As Obama certainly must understand, it is the very spirit of our republic to vest the ultimate power to interpret the constitution in this which he helped appoint. This power is not given to Congress, and just because a cally elected Congress voted for the bill does not mean that it cannot be unconstitutional at the same time. The strength of the majority has nothing to do with the constitutionality of the law. It is inappropriate for the president to suggest otherwise. Ever since Marbury v. Madison gave the Supreme Court the power of judicial review, the courts have struck down laws. The president is worried. You can tell he is worried bewill uphold the law. one thing when they mean another. Obama would not have released such a strong-armed statement if he didnt think it would reach the ears of the Supreme Court and affect its decision. Dont get me wrong, I fully believe that the individual mandate is well within the constitutional power of Congress. I fully believe that Obamacare is constitutional. I fully believe that if the Supreme Court overturns this law, it would be deeply rooted in politics and not in the courts historic objectivity. But I do not fully believe that politics should be used to help sway the courts decision. I do not believe it is appropriate for the president to inject such brash and inappropriate language to condemn an action by the court. And, perhaps most worrying, I do not believe that the president believes in what he is actually saying. Garrett Bruno is a political science sophomore at UF.

Alexander Hamilton, secretary of the treasury and an author of The Federalist Papers, wrote in Federalist 78 that the judicial rights of individuals from the effects ... of occasional ill humors in the society. Though the Supreme Court of the United States is supposed to act as this safeguard of individual rights against majority rule and expansions in executive power, it does not always side with the individual.

In his dissent, Justice Stephen Breyer countered that correcducting a strip search on minor offenders. He also noted that those charged with minor offenses probably did not plan on being arrested and, therefore, would not have tried to hide contraband in their body cavities. One of Kennedys main arguments was completely asinine and illogical. He argued that the fact that Timothy McVeigh was pulled over and charged for a minor offense and turned out to be the Oklahoma City bomber shows how minor offenders could be dangerous criminals.

Coming soon to a computer screen near you is Euston Prep, a new Web series out of Los Angeles. Kacy Bartleigh, the 23-year-old director of the project, graduated from the New York Film Academy last year and has never worked on a project like this before. So far, the workload has been very much a labor of love, she said. Everyone gets along so well and is incredibly talented. Executive producer and co-creator/writer Andrew Connor has had the idea for a series like this for a few years, ever since Veronica Mars began to dwindle from the airwaves. Annie (Liu) and I are both huge fans of Sherlock Holmes, and modeling the characters after Doyles archetypes, but putting them in a different location, seemed interestmembers of the entertainment-loving public, it would be interesting to others as well. I hope people will realize why were doing this to tell a good story, Connor said. Annie Liu, executive producer and co-creator of Euston Prep, works around schedules and problems in order to keep the project moving forward. She said Connor is more in charge of the story and writing it because his work schedule is more intense, and with Bartleighs help, she has been mostly in charge of actual production. ing up outlining the rest of the sixepisode season because we have an overarching series-long story in mind, Liu said. Our photographer, Jason Boulanger who did the promotional photo shoot with us, did it all as a personal favor, Liu said. I think that says a lot about the passion and interest for this project: People are willing to donate their time and ser vices to helping us making Euston Prep a reality. The crew will need more than favors from friends to make this project available to the public. In order to make the 45-minute pilot a reality, the team created an Indiegogo donation page. Their goal might seem large $25,000 but all donations will cover basic expenses needed to produce a pilot episode. None of the money raised will go toward payment of the cast or crew, so its a good thing they love their work. Liu said she knows its a lot to ask for people to work for free, but in the end, were all doing this because we wanted to create oppor tunities for ourselves to tell a really good story. It has been such a collaborative process so far with everyone being so open and accepting of ideas, which is very rare, said Chelsea Taylor, the actress who plays Char lie Reid on Euston Prep. Noah Hunt, 21-year-old actor and musician, plays Declan Rhodes. He met Taylor in an acting class a while ago, and she got him involved with the Web series. I want people to connect with it, Hunt said. This story is original and intriguing, so if they do [connect with it], we will obtain the opportunity to bring this piece of art to a much wider audience. Due to the creators love of Sher lock Holmes and Veronica Mars, viewers should expect plenty of sur prises from the Web series. Euston Prep will bring you a lot of mystery, intrigue, and suspense, but there will also be a healthy dose of comedy if I have anything to do with it, said Matt Devine, who plays Noah Bailey. Some of Devines previous projects (The Wedding Dance and Break of Day) have also used donation-raising websites such as Indiegogo or Kickstarter to help pay for costs. I am no stranger to Web-based productions, Devine said. There is a lot of talent in Los Angeles, and the Internet is making it possible for more of that talent to be seen. The Indiegogo project is amazing because it allows us to spread the word on different medias to a wide array of people, said Kat Bradley, a 24-year-old writer of the show. She got started on the project when Connor asked for her input during the beginning stages, and she was eventually asked to be a member of the team. I hope people realize that were a group of people dedicated to making a good show, and theyll be able to expect an exciting episode week deliver.

He meets his roommate, Declan, a political dynasty heir, and Declans childhood friend Charlie, the grand daughter of a famous movie star. Unfortunately for Noah, De clan and Charlie drag him into a world of intrigue, political con spiracies and mystery as some thing more sinister seems to be at play on the quiet grounds of Euston Prep, proving that maybe boarding school is quite literally murder.

NATALIA SIUERKANAvenue WriterScreenplay writer David H. Steinberg, of the iconic teen movies Slackers and the American Pie series, shows that 10 years after the movies releases, when it comes to playing out teen lingo, sex drives and self-deprecations, he still understands teenagers all of which we see in his new book Last Stop This Town. With the upcoming Amerigrew up watching Jim and the guys grow from horny teens to college guys, and now parents, may But now its time for them to move over for the new teens in town. Last Stop This Town brings in a new set of teens who are just as lovable. Think of the growingup storylines weve come to love from American Pie and the raunchy humor weve picked up from hits such as Superbad and The Hangover. Mix that into this coming-of-age story about four friends who are in limbo between high school graduation and college tured into quite like this. They do what most 18-year-old high school seniors would do in this situation: live life to the fullest or at least try to. Dylan, Noah, Warren and Pike are characters who make up the perfect teen entourage. Dylan is the frustrated leader of the pack, who gets a lot of the soon-to-be-classic very unsure of where to take his life and how to make his dad proud. Noah, the Ivy-League-bound boy, has the perfect life, the perfect balance of book smarts and street smarts and the perfect girlfriend until they break up. Warren is the way-too-talkative guy who respects women so much that instead of talking them into bed, he bores them to death with his chatter of lets exchange emails and are you on Facebook? catchphrases. Hes the guy who, as Dylan perfectly describes, girls will like when theyre older because right now they dont want respect, they want someone to tip the scales of their precarious self-esteem by making them feel special. And of course, what would a perfect teen epic be without the stoner? Pike is a smart, mouthy, laidback guy, who at one point in the story is described by a potential hookup as funny, good-looking (in a young Sean Penn kind of way). Its impossible to not reference Jeff Spicoli, of 1982s Fast Times at Ridgemont High fame after all, he is the epitome of teen stoner. This foursome of troubles and namic that spends its days in the suburbs of Hartford, Conn., doing the usual activities: hooking up and bribing homeless men to buy booze for parties (one of the homeless men ends up drinking his stash and throwing his fecal matter at them). So, to end their high school years on a high, they decide to go to an underground rave in New York. The journey to the rave drives the story forward, and along the way, they live, learn and come to terms with their futures. Steinberg keeps readers on their lines and unexpected turns of events. When you think things are becoming cliche and expected, he throws unexpected elements into the teen mix. With pop-culture references spanning the `80s, `90s, `00s and today, the appeal is wide. Anyone who has been a teen in the last 30 years will enjoy the romp and raunchiness that effortlessly and novel. This will surely become a timeless teen story, and possibly a zeitgeist of teen culture for this new decade. In fewer than 200 pages, Steinberg covers a lot of ground and takes us through the ups and downs that come with being a teen, all while allowing the four young men to grow for the better as their journey comes to end or the beginning, as many would say. Last Stop This Town is already out, and David Steinberg has upcoming Q&A and signing sessions. THE SHOW WILL START AT 6:30 PM. NICOLE LA HOZAvenue WriterForget the gold.

Each of the seven teams must incorporate their heritage into performances, Desai said, to take audience members around the world of their culture. For Hispanic teams such as Sabor Latino, attendees go through countries in South America and Spain. CaribSA and Club Creole will bring in Caribbean moves. The VISA talent show isnt just any competitive show. Teams make Saturdays show a priority, and Desai said her favorite part is seeing how every group works toward winning. Its really, really awesome to eventually see theyve been practicing endless hours a day for this, she said. Each team expresses their creativity through integrated Its not just a two-minute performance where you sit down and its over, Desai said. Its 10 minutes of telling you a story where they come from, what they do, how they dress all while entertaining you. One aspect VISA has been working on is improving the shows professionalism. Desai was last years talent show stage manager, and she wanted to switch out of student hosts. That vision brought GLoZell, a UF alumna and YouTube comedienne, to the ODome. This year, VISA is bringing actor-comedian Brian Dunkleman, whos better known for co-hosting American Idol season one with Ryan Seacrest. The talent shows professional image matches its growing attendance, Desai said. The VISA Talent Show gets bigger annually, originally starting in the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Now, its in the OConnell Center, where 3,000 to 4,000 students attend. Saturday night, audiences can prepare to travel through Latin America, Southeast Asia, Africa and the Caribbean. Its great that people can come out to a show like this for free and be entertained by organizations theyve never heard, Desai said. Youre going around the world in one night. Its great that people can come out to a show like this for free and be entertained by organizations theyve never heard.Monica Desaitalent show directorVISA to hold student talent show on Saturday, free to public8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, APRIL 5, 2012 MICHELLE PROVENZANOAvenue WriterAn eclectic mix with a nostalgic sound is what South Africa natives Civil Twilight offer in its new album, Holy Weather. This sophomore album contains a total of 11 tracks, with three bonus tracks featured on iTunes, and a distinct opposition to their selfWhat Holy Weather offers is a soothing, alternative tone that meshes well with vocalist Steven McKellars haunting voice, as opposed bum. Touching on some eerie styles similar to Brand News Daisy, Holy Weather conThe single Fire Escape, featured on the album, is a more mainstream alternative song with an airy-sounding bassline that is easy for alternative lovers to get into. Its Over is the main ballad of the album. It incorporates emotional lyrics with soft guitars and simple beats. The track lineup for Holy Weather gives listeners an introduction to Civil Twilights unique sound, starting off with more upbeat songs and progressing to more mellow ballads. However, it comes full-circle, ending with energetic and enlightened tracks. In an interview with Fuse TV, McKellar said that while the band was on the road, there was more presished than the previous album. I love pressure; I love working under those situations, McKellar said. Usually that is when the most amazing stuff comes out, if youre ready for it. McKellar, Richard Wouters and McKellars brother, Andrew McKellar, formed Civil Twilight in their South African home, Cape Town, and found that coming to the U.S. has been a vital part of their career. Once the group got to the United States, Civil Twilight started in Los Angeles but found its niche in Nashville, Tenn., immersing themselves into the Southern culture. Due to their South African roots, the bands style is quite distinct with an earthy sound and provides a unique branch of alternative for the U.S. audience. The band signed with Wind-up Records, From the Sky. Civil Twilights albums can be purchased on iTunes, and Holy Weather is now streaming on the bands website, civiltwilightband. com.Civil Twilights sophomore album features soothing, distinct sound music McKellar American Pie screenwriter releases book, Last Stop This TownBooks characters are similar to moviesPhoto courtesy of Wind Up RecordsCivil Twilights latest album brings South African sound to the alternative scene.




GAMEDAY DESIGNS FOR GFW DANA BURKEAvenue WriterAmong the people in Gators T-shirts, jerseys and frat tanks in the Swamp on football Saturdays, a few girls stand out from the crowd looking perfect in their gameday dresses thanks to Jacquelyn Brooks. Brooks, a Gainesville fashion designer, will be showing her creations as part of a Gainesville Fashion Week runway show on Saturday, April 14, at Villa East, located at 301 N. Main St. Her show will feature ready-to-wear pieces as well as formal wear. Brooks got her start in design by sewing clothes for herself in her early teens. She then pursued fashion in college, attending Florida State University to major in apparel design and technology. After graduating from FSU, Brooks moved home to Gainesville to open her business, Jacquelyn Brooks Designs, on University Avenue in Midtown, where she does both custom designs and tailoring and sews everything herself. My family was here when I got out of school, she said. Honestly, I didnt think that I would be staying in Gainesville, but it kind of just ended up that way. With a location within walking distance signs a line of gameday dresses that come in diverse cuts while still staying true to orange and blue for Gator girls. I have some styles that are geared toward college students, and I have some that are geared toward professionals. It just really depends on the design because you know what one group likes, another group would like something else, she said. I kind of just design what I like and go from there. I dont like to wear T-shirts to a game, and you kind of want to stand out in a crowd of 80,000, so a lot of girls really like to wear the dresses. Brooks doesnt just design with the style of dress that her clients might like in mind. She also takes into consideration the weather in the Swamp. Ive designed a line so far thats good to wear in hot weather, she said. Most of its knit, so its movable with the body. It stretches so you dont feel constricted, and its breathable so youre not dying in a 100-degree stadium, but its still cute. She hopes to take her gameday line nationally, creating different designs based on regions due to climate differences in different states, including long sleeves and maxi-dresses for northern schools, and maybe even branching out into separates. I think thats the direction Im going to go, and I can kind of launch that and take that to manufacturing doing gameday colors for every different school and have that as a base business while I expand on the stuff I really love to do, which is the couture line, she said. She describes her design style as feminine, classy but slightly trendy as well, and prefers doing custom designs for her clients. Last year, she designed a custom blue taffeta wedding dress that the customer, and Brooks, loved. It was gorgeous, and basically she just gave me an inspiration a picture to start from and just let me run with it. She just loved everything I did, so that was great because she allowed me to be creative and (I) wasnt stuck with a certain design, Brooks said. I really prefer if customers dont come to me like, Hey, can you copy this dress?, because for me thats not designing; thats just reproducing something somebodys already made. Brooks is not just a designer, but also a philanthropist who founded the Runways and Rescues fashion show last year years event will take place on May 18 at career has not been just one event, but a culmination of all the little things along the way. Last year, I got calls from Fashion two really amazing things that happened, she said. And then, you know, the charity Gainesville Fashion Week, so I think all those little things kind of just keep the motivation going. 10, ALLIGATOR Dana Burke / AlligatorVisit Gainesville local Jacquelyn Brooks at her shop, Jacquelyn Brooks Designs, located in Midtown.

Last season, UF struggled on beam, costing it a spot in the Super Six. See story on alligatorSports.org.

Damico grounder because of an errant throw from FSU third baseman Briana Hamilton. Horton scored the Gators eighth run when Hamilton mishandled a Katie Medina grounder with two outs. In the sixth inning, Florida scored with two outs again thanks to a double off Hortons bat, putting Florida up 9-1. In addition to a solid night with the bats, UF was boosted by the efforts of starting pitcher Hannah Rogers (18-2). Rogers tossed six innings for walking two and yielding one unearned run on four hits. She hits her spots really well every single game, Fagan said. We go against her in scrimmages and shes tough to hit against then, so I have a lot ally good tonight. The nine runs UF pushed across on the road are its highest total since a 9-1 win against South Carolina on March 16. The nine-spot also marks Floridas highest tally away from home since an 11-0 win against Illinois State during the seasons opening weekend.

As a freshman, Leonard appeared in nine games, hauling in eight catches for 99 yards. Saunders needs improvement: After appearing in 12 games and starting nine as a freshman in Flor idas secondary, DeAnte Pop Saunders wasnt atop the depth chart at safety opposite Matt Elam when spring practice began. Instead, Muschamp said Monday, Saunders has been sharing time with Valdez Showers, Cody Riggs and Jabari Gorman, behind Elam and Josh Evans. Floridas second-year coach added that Saunders, who recorded 26 tackles, two interceptions and a forced fumble last year, needs to work on his overall consistency heading into next season. Mussophomores tackling ability as an area that needs improvement, adding that Saunders missed a couple of tackles in the secondary during the teams scrimmage Saturday. (He has) got to get stronger, Muschamp said. (He has) got to tackles. Again, you miss a tackle back there, its a big one. To continue reading this story, please visit alligatorSports.org. FOOTBALL, from page 15OSullivan: Being cautious right moveon the mound 10 days ago, but the Gators have bigger plans in mind than a late-March road trip. Obviously we were probably more cautious than maybe some other people would have been, but I felt like it was the right thing to do, OSullivan said. Nearly half a regular season and then postseason to remains, and Whitson is an integral part of that stretch. I talked to him the whole time, junior catcher Mike Zunino said. I just wanted to reassure that theres no rush. Its a long season, and I didnt want him to try to rush back too early because we do need him. If Tuesday was any indication, Whitson is ready. His fastball velocity was back and his slider was buzzing as he retired three batters in eight pitches. His two strikeI just had to make sure I was really comfortable, percent because thats fair to my teammates and fair to myself.
