Abernathys proposal involves restructuring the Department of Computer and Information Science and Engineering rather than spreading cuts across all 10 engineering departments. Since last week, students, faculty and community members have conducted protests to urge her to reconsider. Tuesday, the dean extended the input period to May 7, according to a post on the colleges website.

ERIN JESTERAlligator Staff WriterGov. Rick Scott signed Floridas budbudget cuts for the State University System. Despite leaving UFs wallet $36.5 million lighter, the $70-billion budget includes $6 million for the completion of a research and academic center at Lake Nona in Orlando, where construction was stalled due to lack of funding. Board of Governors Chairman Dean Colson said in a statement that the board is grateful to the governor and the legislature for funding some long-awaited construction projects like Lake Nona. Scott vetoed $142.7 million in state and local projects from the legislatures spending plan less than a quarter of the amount he vetoed last year. Tuesdays budget included a 5-percent tuition increase in the Florida College System, which doesnt affect Floridas 11 state universities. Scott approved the allocation of money for the possible creation of a 12th state university, Florida Polytechnic University in Lakeland, but he hasnt yet approved the bill that would create it. Scott also has yet to sign a bill that would allow UF and Florida State University to increase tuition more than the current 15-percent cap, although he must make a decision by Friday.

Student Body President Anthony Reynolds signed an executive order Tuesday night that ditional locations on campus. Previously, students were able to print 250 pages free each semester at the lab in the Reitz Union. Students will be able to print for free at La Casita, the Institute of Black Culture, the Asian Room in Peabody Hall, Levin College of Laws JUMBA resource room and McCarty Hall A. La Casita and the Institute of Black Culture already offer free printing, Reynolds said, and he hopes they will be linked to UFs system that keeps track of students printing by the start of Summer A. His goal is to have all the extension labs open before Summer B or by the end of the summer at the latest. SG has been seeking options for expanding free printing, he said, and its been especially important since he stepped into the role of president. I think that would be a very tangible way to help the Student Body, he said. Reynolds said UF Student Affairs will foot the estimated $200,000 bill.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 Alex Catalano / Alligator StaffJose Soto, co-president of UFs Graduate Assistants United, speaks about budget cuts to the computer and information science and engineering department at the Student Senate meeting Tuesday night. S TUDENT GOVERNMENT SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator WriterThe Student Senate passed two bills at Tuesday nights meeting that propose restructuring part of Student Governments executive branch. The bills need one more round of approval to go into effect. The bills focus on reorganizing agencies and cabinets within SG. Agencies are programs, while cabinets deal with programs for groups of students, said Student Body President-elect Tj Villamil after the meeting. The Agency Reorganization Act will cut the Gator Health and Safety and Museum Nights agencies. It will also amend the IMAGE Agency to Action SG, which will promote events, activities and interests of SG through media. Sen. Max Stein said the changes will make it nothing more than an advertising agency. He said that while IMAGE agency does not. During the meeting, however, the Senate re-added the responsibility to broadcast meetings of Student Senate, which may contain the Senate committee meetings. The bill then passed. ing the Senate meetings anyway. The Cabinet Reorganization Act will downsize the 23 cabinets to 17. The bill also changed the name of the presidents cabinet to Campus Executive Secretaries, which will deal with policies. Several senators were concerned that the bill proposed would cut the Graduate and Professional Affairs cabinet. Sen. Carly Wilson said the bill eliminates the graduate and professional students representation from cabinet. The bill also proposed to change the Secretary of Family to the Secretary of Family, Graduate and Satellite Affairs. Villamil said he planned to have undersecretaries who would deal with those Sen. Elizabeth LaRue, a sponsor of both reorganization acts, said these changes will enhance transparency in the Senate. A lot of the changes made will reduce redundant positions, she said. The Senate unanimously passed a bill supporting the efforts led by students to protect UFs engineering departments, especially the computer and information science and engineering department. Last week, the College of Engineering dean proposed a budget cut of about $4 million. About 20 senators spoke on behalf of the bill in support of the the department. As voices for our constituents, we cannot support those cuts, said Sen. Joey Michaels. Contact Samantha Shavell at sshavell@ alligator.org.Student Senate passes bills to restructure part of executive branch THE APP WILL SHOW MALE-TOFEMALE RATIOS AT BARS. CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Contributing WriterStudents will soon be able to check out Gainesville bars and clubs without leaving their apartments with an extension of an app made for barhopping. SceneTap LLC, a Texas-based social-networking company, will add information about seven Gainesville bars and clubs to its free nightlife app Tuesday. The app will include The Vault Night Club, Gator City, Rockeys Dueling Piano Bar, Envy, Stereo Nightclub, Infusion Hookah Bar & Lounge and Sharab Lounge. It shows users the average age of people in the bar or club as well as the male-to-female ratio, said Marissa Betley, a spokeswoman for SceneTap. The app will also allow venues to post coupons and specials for users to buy, and it will show the drink specials at various locations. SceneTap is free to download for both iPhone and Android devices. SceneTap collects gender and age data through the two sensors installed at the entrances and exits of each venue, Betley said. One sensor will keep an updated person ure out how many males and females are in the room. All data will be collected anonymously, she said, meaning there wont be pictures taken of people who walk into the venues. Since SceneTaps launch in July 2011, about 78,000 people have used the app, Betley said. Gainesville will be the fourth city to go live with SceneTap. Chicago, Austin and Bloomington, Ind., are included in the app. After Gainesvilles launch, the app will go live next week in other college towns, including Athens, Ga., and Madison, Wis. Jon Petrie, general manager of Sharab Lounge, said he believes SceneTap will help adjust drink specials for patrons. If the technology works and pinpoints what kind of demographic we are getting in here, I think it will be great, he said. Brandon Eberhart, a 20-year-old business administration sophomore at Santa Fe College, said he thinks the app will help him plan his nights before he walks out the door. But he said theres a chance that the maleto-female-ratio data could be skewed if a male has effeminate features or vice-versa. Mark Hatton, a 22-year-old political science senior at UF, agreed but said he thinks face detection by SceneTap sensors will upset some people who are concerned about privacy. People may not like the idea that their faces are being scanned, he said.App to bring people-tracking technology to Gainesville bars If the technology works and pinpoints what kind of demographic we are getting in here, I think it will be great.Jon Petriegeneral manager of Sharab Lounge

4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 2012Elizabeth Hamilton / AlligatorTussock moth cocoons, like those clustered under a pavilion at Maguire Village, can be found under park benches, signs and other crannies. Allergenic caterpillar hair, which may cause a rash on some people, might be trapped in the cocoons, said Eileen Buss, an associate professor and extension specialist with UFs Department of Entomology and Nematology. ELIZABETH HAMILTONAlligator Contributing WriterFuzzy, tan cocoons might not look as threatening as hordes of crimson-headed caterpillars, but touching them can still cause students and area residents to have allergic reactions. Contact with the tussock moth caterpillars black and white hairs can cause localized swelling and itching. The caterpillar population this year is especially large. People should also be careful with the cocoons. The caterpillars hair gets trapped in them, making them equally allergenic, said Eileen Buss, an associate professor and extension specialist with UFs Entomology and Nematology Department. This is the largest population since 2001, she said, but Buss didnt know the numbers. She said population size is cyclical, but the warm weather might also be partly responsible. Ambrose Coulliette, a 24-yearold electrical engineering senior, said he saw caterpillars raining from trees when he walked from the bus to Hidden Village Apartments. Theres a whole st-ton of them between Archer and Old Archer, he said. Buss recommended pressing packaging tape against skin irritated by the hair. Pulling the tape off will remove the tiny hairs, she said, but prescription-strength cream might be necessary to alleviate symptoms. She also recommended people throw away cocoons instead of spraying them with chemicals to reduce next years population.Caterpillars, cocoons can cause allergic reactions if touchedLOC AL JAVIER EDWARDSAlligator Contributing WriterThe term Freemason has been cloaked in secrecy and rumors over the years, but an Ocala Masonic lodge hopes to satisfy curiosity by hosting a rare open house. Marion-Dunn Masonic Lodge No. 19 of Ocala, located at 1810 SE 36th Ave., will host an open house at 6:30 p.m. Thursday. Gainesville and Ocala residents are invited to attend, said Lodge Master John Macias. This is the second time the lodge has hosted an open house for the public in its 163Macias said he expects 30 to 45 people to attend, the same as the last open house. Seating is limited, so attendees are encouraged to call ahead to reserve a seat. Masonic leaders will give a presentation on the basic structure, precepts and order of Freemasonry, the oldest active fraternity in the United States, Macias said. We believe in patriotism, Macias said. We believe in being respectful to yourself and women. We believe in the public school system. These are American tenets, and you should want your sons to know these. Male community members will have the opportunity to express interest in joining the Masonic order during the open house. Very few people know how to get involved with Freemasonry, Macias said, but its as simple as going to a lodge and asking. Macias, a military veteran, said the lodge is hosting the open house to inform people about what Freemasonry is and to dispel any negative rumors. ies based on the motives of the individual. ed men who help each other and the community grow. We want the community to sit down with us and understand that we are normal guys here to help the community, and for wives to know that their husbands are not a part of a drinking club, he said. Cree Armstead, a 23-year-old UF alumna, has a close friend who is part of the Masonic order, but she thinks of it as an underground society. Im a lot more familiar with the traditional Greek organizations because I attended a lot of their events and have very close friends who are members, she said. Freemasons were always kind of on the hush-hush. Macias disagrees. There nothing really secretive about us, he said. For whatever reason, people are scared of Freemasons or something. Weve heard the rumors out there.Ocala Freemason lodge to host its second open house in history TYLER JETTAlligator Staff WriterA Gainesville man almost ran over his girlfriend Monday afternoon. Antwan D. Mosley, 23, of 3220 SW 26th Terrace, was ar rested on charges of aggravated battery and failing to stop after a crash that involved an injury, according to Gainesville Police. Mosley and Tiare Green got into an argument at about 3:20 p.m. at Lewis Place at Ironwood Apartments, 4121 NE 15th St. Green told GPD she and Mosley have a child and, until recently, lived together. After the argument, Mosley steered his car into Green. He drove forward after hitting her, and she gripped the driver-side door so he couldnt run over her, police said. Mosley dragged Green for about two feet before she fell out of the way. Mosley then drove away. Green called GPD and told Davis that the left side of her body hurt. Davis did not see any injuries. Mosley turned himself in at about 6:45 p.m. He denied hitting Green, but he was held at the Alachua County Jail on Tuesday in lieu of a $25,000 bond. Contact Tyler Jett tjett@alligator.org.Man charged with driving car into girlfriend THE COUNTY WILL PAY $25,000 FOR AN EMERGENCY SHELTER. SHELBY WEBBAlligator WriterThe county is moving forward with an agreement that will reimburse the St. Francis House and the Alachua County Housing Author ity for homeless services. The county approved a two-year agreement with the city and the two organizations in October that said the county would pay $25,000 for an emergency shelter for the homeless. The city will provide an additional $25,000 for the shelters. The county recently received the paperwork necessary to pass the funding to the organizations, said county spokesman Mark Sexton. The agreement is intended to provide funding for this year and next year. However, next years funding could be more or less than $25,000, depending on the available Sexton said the funding will be distributed within the next two months. Emergency shelter is opened whenever there is a threat to the safety of those who sleep outside. This includes when the temperature dips below 45 degrees, if its unbearably hot or if there is a natural disaster. Kent Vann, executive director of St. Francis House, said his shelter was able to cover the costs outof-pocket, but it has taken longer than usual to get funding from the county. We provide the services to the people that need it, then we bill [the county], he said. I dont know why it took so long. On an average night, St. Francis House can shelter 35 people temporarily and an additional 33 people in permanent housing. During an emergency, it can open up to 60 additional beds. The shelter routinely provides refuge during frigid nights, such as in 2010 when temperatures dropped below 30 degrees Fahrenheit. The Alachua County Housing Authority provides low-cost housing to families and individuals in Minnie Rolark, assistant director for Alachua County community support services, said this is the seventh year the county has provided the funding. She also said the county received the necessary papers from the city recently, and its not unusual for the payment to be delayed within the county. The paperwork has to go through two legal teams, she said, so sometimes it takes a little bit longer.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5AP PhotoUp in the AirThis handout photo provided by NASA shows the Space Shuttle Discovery mounted atop a NASA 747 THE ASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON The Secret Service prostitution scandal escalated Tuesday with the disclosure that at least 20 women had been in hotel rooms with U.S. agents and military personnel just before President Barack Obama arrived for a summit with Latin American leaders. The head of the Secret Service said he had referred the matter to an independent government investigator. Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan, shuttling beers on Capitol Hill, was peppered with questions about whether the women had access to sensitive information that could have jeopardized Obamas security. Sullivan said the 11 Secret Service agents and 10 military personnel under investigation were telling different stories about who the women were. Sullivan has dispatched more investigators to Colombia to interview the women, said Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee. Some are admitting (the women) were prostitutes, others are saying theyre not, theyre just women they met at the hotel bar, King said in a telephone interview. Sullivan said none of the women, who had to surrender their IDs at the hotel, were minors. But prostitutes or not, to be bringing a foreign national back into a secure zone is a problem. CRIME TYLER JETTAlligator Staff WriterGainesville Police arrested a man accused of throwing eggs and breaking a front-door window with a 2-by-4 on Tuesday morning. Justin A. Arredondo, 25, of Hawthorne, was charged with attempted burglary and criminal mischief. Arredondo moved in with his brother and Katie Williams at 730 NE 10th Ave. in March. He promised to stay only two weeks, Williams said. He stayed four. Williams said she and Arredondo bickered. He depressed her, telling her he was worthless and belonged in jail. Also, he brought women back too many of them. Williams works as a cook and server at Leonardos Pizza of Millhopper and often doesnt come home until after 2 a.m. Sometimes, she would wake up two or three hours later to Arredondos screams during sex. Williams left a message for Arredondo on Sunday: Stop bringing women home. Later, a neighbor told Williams that Arredondo had entertained three women that day. When she came home from work at about 2:30 Tuesday morning, she told him he needed to leave. Arredondo refused. He told Williams the only way he was leaving was in the back of a police car, she said. Then, he ran outside with about 15 eggs and a beer bottle. Arredondo ran to a neighboring duplex, chucked the beer bottle up an outdoor stair case and unloaded his eggs against a front door, Williams said. He then grabbed a 12-foot-long 2-by-4 that he had brought back from a construction site where he worked. He threw the wood against the front door several times. Once, the 2-by-4 bounced off a pole and hit Arredondo in the face, Williams said. Eventually, he smashed the window on the front door, according to police. He was held at Alachua County Jail on Tuesday in lieu of a $20,000 bond.

The event is free and open to all ages. Catherine Carey, public programs coordinator at the museum, said a bioblitz is a quick way to get a population number for plant and animal specimens. This bioblitz is a little bit different. Instead of going into nature and counting populations, participants will see how scientists get specimens. Why look at the environment when you can look at all the things in the neighborhood? Carey asked. Leeann Bright, marketing and public relations coordinator for the museum, said there will be a variety of activities for all ages. Inside the museum, the UF entomology department will have some displays, and other organizations will talk about their mammal and bird collections. Outside, the UF Natural Area Teaching Laboratory will be set up along three different trails to show collecVisitors can also learn why researchers need to collect plants and animals for study and the importance of collecting. The environment truly affects all of us, so its impor tant to see how research is done, Bright said. Carey said the teaching laboratory areas will be stationed along the Upland Pine Trail, the Old Field Trail and the Storm Ecological Enhancement Project Trail, otherwise known as the Wetlands Trail, behind the museum and the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. The trails are easily accessible with man-made paths and a boardwalk through the SEEP trail, Carey said.Florida Museum of Natural History to host bioblitz for Earth Day ALEX MASIAlligator Contributing WriterAfter conducting a national search, UF Hillel has hired a new campus rabbi. Rabbi Gail Swedroe, a Califor nia native, will join the UF Hillel staff this summer. to serve UF students. Rabbi Gail will bring a presence not just to UF Hillel, but to the university itself, UF Hillel Executive Director Keith Dvorchik said. cal student at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York City. She will graduate this spring. Jessica Davis, Jewish student life coordinator at UF Hillel, said she is looking forward to Swedroes ar rival in Gainesville. She said Hillel interviewed many candidates on the phone and brought three to campus for small group meetings with students and one-on-one meetings with the staff. Dvorchik said he believes Swedroe will help connect all faiths across campus. Swedroe will join Rabbi Daniel Wolnerman, a traditional rabbi, and become the second full-time rabbi at UF Hillel. Davis said Hillel hired Swedroe, a conservative rabbi, to better serve the needs of about 8,000 Jewish students on campus. Based on the population of students that visits UF Hillel, Davis said, there are more conservative and reform Jewish students on campus than traditional students. Swedroe said she is looking for ward to her move to Gainesville. I am really excited to work make Judaism and Jewish tradition accessible and meaningful in their lives, she said.Arredondo Sullivan

He seemed OK in prison. But life outside freedom, the opportunity to attain material goods and all the other things people equate with happiness was too much for him. To me, the scene underscores the relativity of satisfacperceive as abysmal circumstances and vice versa. On Sunday, a college student with all the opportunity in the world ended his own life. Presumably, the lives of a mother, a father, a friend and many others were changed forever when he tragically jumped to his death. I dont know what the student was going through. I dont know if he had talked to anyone before he jumped, and I dont know his mental state or the circumstances surrounding his death. All I know is that his death was a tragedy. And for every person who commits suicide, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of others who are considering it. When we look at the lives of students who commit suicide, it seems like they have everything the world can offer: youth, education and endless opportunity. In other cases, they may have hidden, underlying personal problems. Either way, satisfaction is relative, and we can never be sure what someone is going through. cal problems is the stigma of seeking help for them. So shame and fear of judgment. Indeed, the judgment surrounding psychological illness is extreme in America. A study in 1991 by the National Mental Health Association found that 43 percent of Americans viewed depression as a personal weakness. Although the study was done more than 20 years ago, chances are our views on this illness havent changed very much. Putting aside our uncertainties of mental problems, no matter what one believes a particular mental problem is, the goal of seeking help is still the same: to rid oneself of the mental problem and to go on and live a prosper ous life. Nobody wants to live in a world where everyone is depressed. One does not put a burden on the world by seeking help. One should not be ashamed for seeking help. Getting help for mental suffering is best for the one seeking help and for society as a whole. Theres an abundance of students who live in social residence halls, go out and dance at Sharab until 2 a.m. and go back to their dorms still feeling like they are alone in the world. If youre considering seeing a professional for mental help even if youre just going through rough times then help yourself and see them. Somewhere, someone cares. If you are feeling low, reach out to someone. If you notice a friend who seems to be in a bad place, reach out to him or her. In either case, there are a lot of resources at your disposal. Abdul Zalikha is a biology and English junior at UF. His column appears on Wednesdays. Campaign ConundrumSG Election codes raise questionsP while, often talk a lot about reforming the system. Many have lauded efforts to reform campaigns and lations or disclosure requirements. However, one has to wonder if these reforms are meant to encourage a more open political discussion, or if they are meant to prevent new voices from entering the discussion by insulating those in power from successful challengers. When looking through the pages and pages of UF Student Governments codes, the rules and regulations governing SG elections, most rules seem logical and somewhat tame in their approach to keeping the system fair. However, some of the codes are quite questionable, especially when it comes to their possible implications for free speech. tains to code 762.0, which states that campaign material shall be labeled with the phrase Registered Political Advertisement followed by the name of the person who authorized the creation of, disbursement of, or payment for that campaign material. While there may be a seemingly coherent argument for wanting to make sure that all campaigning materials distributed are becomes concerned. electronic material used for the purpose of supporting a caninitiative, a referendum question or proposed constitutional amendment. This is a somewhat disturbing rule, especially in the age of online communication and social networking. If I have a conver candidate fails to put Reg. Pol. Ad after everything he or she says, is the candidate violating election codes? If someone posts something that the party in power does not like and the poster of that material fails to put Reg. Pol. Ad, can the party in power bring charges of election code violations against the minority party? Lets face it, the party in power will likely appoint people to the Elections Commission that are favorable to that party, given the current codes. We want to make sure that we are clear: This is not about Unite Party versus Students Party. Our argument stems from our overall concern about the students ability to be fairly represented and their ability to debate and discuss issues without fear that their speech might come into question. Tomorrow, we will discuss another SG election code we feel has problematic implications for the free speech of students at UF. Abdul Zalikhaopinions@alligator.org

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 As many of us already know, a member of The Gator Nation, Michael Edmonds Jr., took his life Sunday. I write not only out of my grief at having lost a friend, but also out of grief did not come through for him the way I could have.

8, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 2012Aundre Larrow/ Alligator StaffNina, a stray brown tabby cat, sits in the arms of Vernon Sawyer, acting director of Alachua County Animal Services, Tuesday afternoon. Soon some of the cats will be moving to a new adoption facility in the lobby. CAROLYN HANDAlligator Contributing WriterFurry felines will be lounging in luxury in their new adoption facility at Alachua County Animal Services, thanks to some help from UF. Animal Services will open a new adoption facility this week within its current building. The facility will include colonystyle housing for cats rather than individual cages. The new housing includes cages with several rooms that are connected through circular portals, allowing the felines to move between the spaces to socialize. The new facility was designed with help from UFs College of Veterinary Medicine. Veterinary faculty and students advised county animal services staff on what features would be best when housing the felines. Funding for the project came from donations from individuals and organizations to Alachua County Animal Services. Vernon Sawyer, acting director for the animal organization, said the new facility will give cats more room to live and play. He said this is important because cats are prone to upper-respiratory problems and infections when theyre stressed. This new facility will give the cats a bigger living area and a place to play, exercise and socialize, Sawyer said. We think it will keep them healthier and happier. Sawyer said three to four cats will be housed together at a time, and the new areas will include cat trees and other toys for the animals. The project has been in the planhe said, but it had been stalled numerous times due to budget constraints. He credits the projects muchawaited completion to UFs assistance. Sawyer said UF veterinary students come weekly to examine and treat animals. Gwen Jones, administrative coordinator for ACAS, said the organization encourages anyone with a love for animals to volunteer. Alachua County Animal Services plans to have a Cinco de Meow open house from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. May 5 at 3400 NE 53rd Ave. to celebrate the new adoption facility.Alachua County Animal Services to open new adoption facilityL OC AL ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterGainesville Police Department wants to keep a stricter lookout for people who dont wear seat belts at night. Because people are statistically less likely to wear seat belts at night, GPD is asking the Florida Department of Transportations to fund a nighttime seat belt enforcement program, said Sgt. Operations Division. The money will be used to areas such as Archer Road and West University Avenue for those who are not wearing their seat belts early in the evening and late into the night. The over belt violations at least one night a week, Raulerson said. We just want to have some extra eyes out there, he said. GPD plans to submit the grant request after city staff review the application. The Florida Department of Transportation reviews grants in the summer. GPD will not know if the grant money is approved until fall at the earliest. In Alachua County, a driver person in the passengers seat isnt wearing a seat belt. In 2011, belt violations. Raulerson said there was no spike in seat belt violations or car crash fatalities that prompted him to apply for the grant. Instead, he got the idea during a conference a few months ago. For our size, the number of Raulerson said. But one is still too many, so we need to do everything we can to decrease them. Last year, there were seven according to GPD. Raulerson said wearing a seat belt was the biggest factor in whether a person lived through those crashes. University police strongly enforce the seat belt law on campus, said Sgt. Kristy Maculan of UPD. Maculan said UPD encounters a lot of students who dont want to wear seat belts because the strap is uncomfortable or because they think it is not needed for short distances across campus. Statistically, people get into accidents in areas where they feel more comfortable, Maculan said. Distance doesnt matter. It should be habitual.

ALEXANDRA ANNANAlligator Contributing WriterThe Gainesville community will get the chance to relax in the sun while listening to the sounds of Rooney and Mac Miller on SatSwampfest is a festival that brings together national music acts and local bands, said Student Government Productions chairman Jeff Schnier. The event will also feature local artwork, food and bounce houses. Swampfest will start at 4 p.m. on Flavet Field. The event is free and open to the public. Headlining Swampfest is national hip-hop recording artist Mac Miller, an artist the UF Student Body has expressed great interest in, Schnier said. Rooney, RAC and Tokyo Police Club will also perform along with local bands Twylight Zone and The Hush. The festival is sponsored by SGP, UF VISA and the Reitz Union Board Entertainment. Kelly Richard, a 21-yearold journalism senior and RUB bands committee co-director, said RUB was excited about getting involved when SGP had the idea for Swampfest. Its a great opportunity to bring live music to school, Richard said, especially at the end of the year for a last celebration. SGP has hosted numerous concerts throughout the years, but Swampfest is different, Schnier said. I think the combination of the number of artists, the quality of artists and the fact that its free is something that we havent normally had, he said.

They came prepared with laptops, textbooks and power strips. Halan said the proposal was not changed during the meeting. Glover explained to the students that their demand of a July 1. To get them approved, Glover must have all proposals Glover told the students he had seen Abernathys plan and supports it, said Nuri Yeralan, a 28-year-old Ph.D. student. Although the students argued that the Legislature states these budget cuts are one-time, Glover said UF President Bernie Machen has interpreted that they are recurring. The students also suggested involving a third party to evaluate the proposals, Yeralan said. UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said the meeting resulted in productive dialogue between the students and administration. The students were going to be there outside the deans and hear what their concerns are, she said.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESSMIAMI (AP) Ozzie Guillen emerged from the clubhouse tunnel three hours before game time Tuesday, saw the horde of media waiting for him in the dugout and uttered an expletive in surprise. Hes back. pension imposed after he praised Fidel Castro, Guillen rejoined the team for Tuesday nights game against the Chicago Cubs, a game Miami won 5-2. I feel great, said Guillen, seated in the dugout and facing about 50 reporters and cameramen three to come back and do what I love to do. The talkative, opinionated, profane Guillen said he wont change but then added hell steer clear of certain subjects from now on. He also said hell be more careful about what he says around people he doesnt know well. Obviously talking about some issues is not my business, he said. My business is to talk about baseball. ... I learned a very tough lesson. You learn from mistakes. I hope this mistake makes me a better person. No demonstrations were evident at the ballpark Tuesday, and there was no reaction when Guillen took his seat at the dugout railing just before the game. The Venezuelans comments about Castro in a magazine inter view angered Cuban Americans, who make up a large segment of the Marlins fan base. He apologized repeatedly during an extraordinary news conference a week ago, then began the suspension only team. Contrite but upbeat, Guillen said he spent his idle week at home in Miami and watched Marlins games on TV, which he found weird. He said he visited with Cuban exiles and was moved by the stories they told. looking directly in their eyes, Guillen said in Spanish. One gentleman spent 26 years in prison. Tears came out. I asked for their forgiveness. I still feel bad because I injured many persons. He said he hopes to repair damage done by winning games and being active in community outreach. Obviously people are still a little bit upset, he said. I dont blame them a bit, but I feel a lot of people supporting me. No matter what I do, its not going to be enough there are some people out there who are going to feel the way theyre going to feel.

16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 2012 David Carr / Alligator Staff JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Writer The Gators offense has gotten quite a bit of attention. The unit ranks second nationally in goals per game with 17.25, and Florida is one of two teams in the country to have four 50-point scorers. What has been equally as impressive this season, but has not received as much attention without the gaudy statistics of the attack, is the play of the UF defense. Often times defenses go under the radar, coach Amanda OLeary said. Florida put together one of its most impressive defensive showings of the season in a 17-5 win at Vanderbilt on Saturday. Containing their (Vanderbilts) offense was something we were worried about, OLeary said. We had not done a very good job in the past couple of games of containing 1 v. 1 opportunities for our opponents I thought they came out and executed the game plan very well defensively. The Commodores 13 shots were the fewest the Gators have ever surrendered to an American Lacrosse Conference opponent, with the previous low being 19 in an 8-7 win at Vanderbilt last season. Florida lowered its goals-against aver age to 6.63 and moved into sole possession fense after Saturdays win. The team results have been strong for Florida despite the fact it does not have a player ranked in the top 50 in the country in either ground balls or caused turnovers. OLeary cited the continuity of the defense a reason for its strong play. They have played together now for twoand-a-half, almost three years, OLeary said. They are getting to know each other. The communication has gotten better. Whereas the attack lost senior Caroline Cochran to a torn ACL in her left knee ear Janine Hillier to transfer in the offseason, the core of the defense has remained intact since 2010. Juniors Kayla Stolins, Sam Far rell, Haydon Judge, Jamie Reeg and Emily Dohony have all been mainstays in Flor inaugural season. The depth of the unit has been strengthened as well with the addition of freshman Sally Jentis. She has seen action in 14 of the Gators 16 games this season, collecting 11 ground balls and causing six turnovers. Her most impressive moment this season came when she was subbed in for an injured Dohony in the second half of Floridas 13-12 win against Johns Hopkins on April 7. The Blue Jays won the opening draw of the second overtime, but Jentis forced a turnover 18 seconds later, and the Gators scored the winning goal on the ensuing possession. Shes certainly somebody we can put in there at any point in time, OLeary said. less. With a showdown at top-ranked undefeated Northwestern looming Saturday, derbilt. Im really just excited with our defense, OLeary said. I thought it was good for our defense to be challenged in the last couple of games. They came out on Saturday and put it all together.Floridas defense draws praise with Northwestern match loomingwrote in the obituary that ran in our paper on Monday, Michael was a member of Team Florida Cycling who was often at his happiest when riding. Friends used to laugh at the Gators-themed rants he would post to his Facebook. About six or eight months back, a friend of mine basically asked me why I was wasting my time writing sports. There are so many other things to be worried about: the national debt, capitalism, healthcare, human rights, so on and so forth. In his eyes, I was providing the circus end of the bread and circus that government was using to keep society appeased while atrocities went unchecked. But being a sportswriter isnt a vote for ignorance, and its not a message that keeping up with news and politics is unimportant. Its a chance to highlight all the good things in sports, from inspirational underdog stories to everything a man like Jackie Robinson did for racial equality. Its about a father and son sharing a moment at the ballpark, and all those who need an escape. What were aiming to do is provide an avenue for people with problems to forget about them for just a few trouble. But, for some, that wont be enough. For Michael, a back injury suffered in a biking accident left him in a brace and unable to ride, cutting off his sporting outlet and adding to an array of issues that included bipolar disorder. I never knew it was possible to miss something this bad, he posted to his Twitter account. ...can we rewind life and restore my back? I NEED to ride a bike. Even though Michael was starting to come around he had bought a new bike and gotten medical clearance to ride in the past few weeks, according to the Florida Times-Union the events of Sunday passed as they did. Those in distress need to know they can fall back on friends, family and loved ones in their time of need. When thats not enough, that support system can extend to UFs Counseling & Wellness Center, which is available any time at 352-392-1575. just outside its walls on Sunday, my only hope is that our work at alligatorSports puts a smile on at least a few peoples faces, and that those who need to will know where to go for help if they need it.
