CAITLIN HARTLEYAlligator Contributing WriterUF&Shands Health System and the UF Academic Health Center have committed to creating a new entry pavilion and lobby for the Shands Hospital for Children. According to David Guzick, UF senior vice president for health affairs and president of UF&Shands Health System, these plans for construction will be the hospitals fundraising project for the upcoming year. Were currently viewing federal design concepts for a two-story atrium leading into a dedicated lobby area for the childrens hospital, Guzick said during a press conference Wednesday. The new additions to the hospital, which include the lobby, a childrens atrium, an entrance pavilion and a themed donor wall, will be located near the east parking garage. Guzick said the gift shop and the bathrooms in the current entrance will be demolished and rebuilt in a different spot to create a much more generous lobby.

On Jan. 2, 1920, under democratic President Woodrow Wilson, Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer conducted multi-city raids that led to the arrest and extended detention without trial of at least 6,000 people. These arrests were coordinated under the auspices of rooting out anarchists, radicals and revolutionaries in preparation for an inevitable Red uprising known thereafter as the Palmer Raids. Palmers conduct was later repudiated by the fact that no uprising materialized, and public opinion soured at the authoritarian overreach of the Wilson administration. Never criticized or disciplined by Wilson, Palmer remained unrepentant to the end, stating in his 1921 testimony before a Senate hearing, I apologize for nothing that the Department of Justice has done ... I glory in it. I point with pride and enthusiasm to the results of that work; and if ... agents of the Department of Labor were a little rough and unkind ... with these alien agitators, ... I think it might well be overlooked in the general good to the country. Today, President Barack Obamas attorney general, Eric Holder, faces mounting calls for his resignation and possible prosecution under a contempt of Congress charge currently being prepared in response to his failure to comply with a subpoena issued by the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. This legally binding warrant demands documents related to the botched Fast and Furious operation, which resulted in the United States into the hands of Mexican drug cartels.

When repeatedly questioned about his unwillingness to comply with congressional subpoenas, Holder deConstitution by ludicrously citing lax U.S. gun laws as the real reason for Mexican cartel violence. Thus far, Obamas only commentary on the multi-year debacle still assailing the credibility of his justice department was to deny any knowledge or responsibility, as usual. The most prescient remaining question is how Obama can continue to trumpet his administration as the most transparent in history when, in reality, it is becoming readily apparent that it may ultimately be one of the most secretive and grossly incompetent, if not criminal, ever.

THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 Most of us have probably seen the trailer for Sacha Baron Cohens new movie, The Dictator. Coupled with Cohens antics in interviews and on the red carpet, his latest movie is getting its fair amount of press. Recently he went so far as to irreverently spill the ashes of deceased North Korean leader Kim Jong Il on Ryan Seacrest at the Academy Awards. Ive never been a fan of Cohens work, and Im predicting that his latest movie of the trailer Cohen openly exploits exaggerated Arabic stereotypes. Through these caricatures, Cohen shows a complete disregard and inherent disrespect for the Arabic culture. I dont believe that different cultures should be off-limits from humor; however, theres a thin line between socially acceptable Political comedian Dean Obeidallah, in a column for CNN.com, equated Cohens dictator costume to white actors donning blackface in the late 19th century. Blackface was used in minstrel shows as caricatures of African-Americans. Today, it is openly acknowledged that blackface is blatantly racist. Shouldnt Cohens costume, which does the same for Arabs that blackface did for African-Americans, be held in the same regard? Obeidallah also writes that there are no actors or writers of Arab descent involved in the movie. Ben Kingsley, who co-stars, is of Indian descent and is the only person remotely from the region. The movie would have fared better if it included Arabic writers or actors. Their input would have rendered funnier jokes and representations grounded in reality. The lack of care in assembling the cast and crew shows Cohens disregard of the Arabic culture. He would rather garner cheap laughs than produce a movie with an ounce of authenticity. Cohens depiction of negative Arabic stereotypes is not only racist but also reinforces a deeper political undertone. Recently, the United States was responsible for the removal of several Arabic dictators the latest was It also appears that the U.S. has its sights set on Iran and Syria. Our current political environment makes it impossible for this movie to be silly fun. Cohens main character, Admiral General Shabazz Aladeen, continues to demonize deceased foreign leaders and prolongs the thirst for war. This movie promotes a deep dislike of Arabic culture through false stereotypes Citizens of the U.S. will never quench their thirst for foreign wars if they keep being fed stale, dry and racist jokes. Due to his position in the public eye, his minds of the ignorant. These opinions formed on false stereotypes and extravagant depictions will in turn instigate the need for incessant violence. You will end up with people eating lunch next to you, reading the same textbooks and craving the end of a whole culture. Michela Martinazzi is an art history junior at UF. Her column regularly appears on Tuesdays.Cohens The Dictator reinforces Arabic stereotypesColumnLast semester, the Alligator ran a comic strip that alluded to a scene from an Indiana Jones movie. In the comic, the character, Short Round, who is Asian, inquired about the keyboard clacking noises coming from the study-in led by the Computer and Information Science and Engineering students. His line in the comic is, What that sound? Maybe I step on Chinese fortune cookie? The cartoonist chose to make his lines grammatically incorrect and ultimately portrayed Short Round to be speaking Engrish, not English. This idea perpetuates the stereoable to communicate with correct grammar and converse in a style called broken English. If the editors of the Alligator knew that Short Round was so blatantly stereotyped in the movie, why would they allow this comic to be published in its newspaper? Michael Satyapor, president of the Asian American Student Union, voiced his concern by saying, There are many stereotyped characters in existence and encouraging these ideas is not good. There are so many ways to utilize humor and social commentary without resorting to such nonsense. lander American community at UF and beyond, the Alligator should be informed that the comic was offensive, and messages of disrespect to ones community will not be tolerated. Society has been told that Asian Americans are the model minority group that will choose to stay quiet and behave appropriately, unlike other minority groups that would be Im writing this to speak up against that notion. I want the Alligator staff and the overall UF community to be educated on how media can be used to oppress or stereotype an entire community and how to effectively communicate without doing such things. There should also be more education around ethical decision-making on whether an article or comic should be published. We all have a responsibility to confront and challenge stereotypes and to empower our community by doing so.

MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAvenue WriterVishal Agarwala was tired of bands he loved not touring in Gainesville, so he started his own company to bring his favorite artists here. Now Garage Mahal Presents, the former Grooveshark employees promotions company, has booked close to 40 live shows in Gainesville. Booked artists have included R.A.C., a collective of musicans that remix different genres of music, and the punk band Black Lips. potential audience in Gainesville for a genre of music and then brings in bands with the best live performances. Audience members may not be familiar with every band at a show, but they come expecting a great live concert. community, and its appreciated, Agarwala said. Warren Oakes, former drummer of Against Me! and a client of Garage Mahal Presents, agreed that the company has contributed to bringing live music to Gainesville. Garage Mahal Presents acts as a liaison between bands and seven Gainesville venues including Double Down Live and The Atlantic. Agarwalas staff includes an assistant agent and a street team of about eight people. A freelance designer is used to create promotional material. Two to four shows have been booked by Garage Mahal Presents each month since the companys creation in January 2011. In March, a Garage Mahal Presents concert featuring the Black Lips reached capacity at The Backyard, a venue owned by Oakes. The band hadnt toured in Gainesville since 2009. For several touring bands like the Black Lips, shows in Gainesville are sporadic. Because of travel expenses, some bands refrain from booking shows in Florida. Everyone plays Atlanta because Atlanta is on the way to everywhere, Oakes said. Once you dip into Florida, youre guaranteed to have to backtrack. Oakes also said that Gainesvilles wellconnected community of concert seekers has Audiences have begun to associate the promotions company and its associated venues with high-quality live performances. At this point, people just trust us not to book bad shows, he said. Garage Mahal Presents will relocate to New York this year, Agarwala said. He plans to move from Gainesville in June, leaving his current assistant agent, John Berna, in charge of the company. Eventually, Berna will rebrand the company and Agarwala will continue Garage Mahal Presents in New York. During the summer, the company will try to book more student bands that are unable to tour during the school year, Berna said. Fewer shows have been booked for summer months because of the lack of student population. Its a good time for the transition, he said.

While a few staple bars such as Stubbies & Steins, The Top and Alcove have offered craft selection for years, newer bars such as Tall Pauls Brew House, House of Beer, The Bull, Looseys and The Midnight have sprouted up to accommodate craft beer demand. The reason I chose Gainesville as a place to open the bar was because of the demand it was an open market, Paul Evans, the 6-foot7-inch owner of Tall Pauls Brew House, said. Florida was relatively late to the craft-beer trend, with major microbreweries emerging only in the last few years. Pioneer states such as California and Colorado saw craft breweries begin brewing in the late 1990s. We were late to the party, but things are starting to evolve, Birkmaier added. Microbrewing is starting to take off a lot of that has to do with tasting rooms. Tasting rooms are small bars attached to the breweries that allow beer drinkers to visit the brewery while tasting permanent and experimental beers. This allows fans to connect with local breweries, it also allows the brewits brewery, instead of the usual three-tiered ery to the distribution company to the bar or restaurant where it is served. Some bars expressed concerns over this week falling during a time when school is on break and beer-loving students and faculty may be out of town. Were in between two semesters, so it will be interesting to see how many people respond to this, Mackowiak said. The art of making beer has surpassed simply going to beer bars, and some take matters into their own hands and experiment with home brewing. The Hogtown Brewers are very strong as well we have a very educated public, Burke said. The homebrew club, which has been around since 1985, provides monthly education and social outings for homebrewers in Gainesville. The club also put on a craft beer festival in April, where it had beer sampling, beer and food pairing, homebrew demonstrations and educational seminars. large beer selections at beer stores Tipples Brews, Gator Beverage and Wards Supermarket.

MICHELLE KLUGAvenue WriterTwo months ago, Sarah Goff and Mike Myers sat outside a colossal empty warehouse in a mountain of old clothes, vinyl records, picture frames and empty vases. They waited. They sold trinkets at yard sales every Saturday. They waited some more. They eventually sold enough to open The Repurpose Project in that warehouse, plies, sculptures and paintings. The Repurpose Project is an organization that collects materials that would normally go to waste and uses them to create art. The establishment, located in downtown Gainesville at 519 S. Main St., is a three-part art studio: a workspace for art creation, a gallery for art display and a reused art supply store. the recycle void, Goff said, toting a purse of great materials out there with no place to go. Goff pointed to a painting and explained that the canvas was found in a Dumpster on UF campus. Artist Christina Rohan salvaged the paint from the Hazardous Waste Collection Center. We ask artists to use 75 percent recycled materials, but they usually use a lot more, Meyers said. The art center encompasses many forms of art such as carvings, collages, jewelry making, crafts and painting. Goff said they attain the reusable materials by donation from individuals and businesses. Businesses spend a lot of money on disposal, and were giving them a place where they can take their waste, Goff said. They can reduce costs, save money and green their business. The Repurpose Project is a volunteerbased gallery, which currently houses eight artists and one intern who helps organize the donated materials. Goff said they hope to start running workshops where they will educate people on certain forms of arts and crafts. Goff has previously worked at Trash to Treasure, a creative reuse center in South Florida. Myers, who met Goff when she was looking for recycled lumber to build a tree house, has been in the recycling business for more than 40 years.

The citys Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs department presents free concerts each Friday from May 4 until Oct. 12. David Ballard coordinates events downtown, including Free Fridays. He said between 500 and 1,500 people usually attend the shows each week. We get such an incredible variety of people, Ballard said. It town party. This year, the shows will range in genre from blues to ska and from bluegrass to tribute bands.

12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2012 THOMAS NASSIFAvenue WriterDear God, Gabel would pray as a teenager, When I wake up tomorrow morning, I want a female body. Against Me! frontman Tom Gabel spoke out last week in a big way, revealing exclusively to Rolling Stone magazine that he is transgender, has spent almost his entire life feeling trapped in the wrong skin and will be undergoing the steps necessary to transition into a woman. That quote, taken from Josh Eells The Secret Life of Tom Gabel in Rolling Stone, Issue 1157, is perhaps the shortest summation of the seemingly hellish personal life of Gabel the life he struggled through as he led the Gainesvillebased Against Me! to become one of the most recognized political-punk bands in the country. From his life as a young teenager in Florida, to Against Me!s rise with Searching for a Former Clarity, to the bands most recent and best-selling record, White Crosses, Gabel has struggled with a condition known as gender dysphoria. As the Rolling Stone article explains it, gender dysphoria is a feeling of intense dissatisfaction and disconnect from the gender you were assigned at birth. Gabel puts it more bluntly, Its a feeling of detachment from your body and from yourself. And its shitty, man. Its really fucking shitty. When Gabels feelings swelled to the point where he decided it was time to transition to presenting as a female, he told his band (I felt like I drop-kicked them in the face) and he told his wife, Heather. The couples 2-year-old daughter, Evelyn, isnt quite old enough to understand. To Gabels intense relief, everyone took it well. His bandmates stood beside him. Heather remained strong for him. The couple will remain together, still as in love as ever. Gabels mom took the news well too. Gabels new name is Laura Jane Grace. She will take hor mones and undergo electrolysis treatments that will make her feel and appear more feminine. She might have surgery in a couple of years. Right now, shes just taking it one step at a time. Laura Jane Graces decision is an intensely intimate one, but due to Against Me!s prominence, its a decision that has been left to the scrutiny of millions on the Internet. Fortunately, the punk community that has supported Against Me! for years has responded mainly with support. And the com munity should be supportive everyone should. The same day Lauras decision made headlines on the websites of every major news source, North Carolina announced its ban on gay marriage. It was clear on that day more than most that we live in a society that is not accepting of all cultures and choices. Living in North Florida, most of us have seen people demonstrate small-mindedness, some times on our very own campus, on our very own Turlington Plaza. Many people use religion as their reasoning for rejecting new ideas about marriage, and they certainly would reject a decision like Lauras. This is why every ounce of support is so important and essential at this time. Lauras decision is one that took an enormous amount of bravery, an unimaginable amount of courage; really, the list of adjectives could go on and on. as Lauras, but she demonstrates how willing we all should be to do whatever it takes to carry our lives out the way we want to. Above all, this decision is not one that should make you resenting Lauras decision, ask yourself why. Not only does it not affect you, but Tom is becoming happier by becoming Laura. Doing what makes you happy is, by far, the most punk thing a person can do. Oh, and as for the future of the band; Laura intends to continue on and become the frontwoman of Against Me! Rolling Stone, Imagine me, six-foot-two in heels, fucking screaming in someones face.Against Me! frontman Tom Gabel comes out as transgender column NATALIE TEERAvenue WriterThere was a sea of purple. Jiggling, swaying, jumping and shaking. Waiting for the woman on stage to command them. The woman was Margie Weiss, mother of Rachel Morningstar Hoffman. In May of 2008, Hoffman was acting as an informant for the Tallahassee Police Department when a poorly executed drug sting led to her death. I went to Rachels grave today; Weiss said, but she doesnt live there, she lives here. She gestured to the open air of the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park and the crowd erupted. After Hoffmans death, her family and friends worked to get a bill implemented that requires Florida law enforcement agencies requirements when using police informants. Some of those regulations include assessment of the informants maturity level, age, risk level of the mission and emotional state. In May 2009, Gov. Charlie Crist signed that bill titled Rachels Law. To fund the passing of the law and to celebrate the life of their daughter and friend, the Morningstar Foundation began hosting a music festival in 2008, The Purple Hatters Ball. The festival is named in remembrance of Hoffman, who was often seen at concerts and music festivals wearing a big smile and a fuzzy purple hat. The purple hat is a happy, colorful symbol. It creates a nice, warm memory for our friend, Paul Levine, friend of Hoffman and member of the board of directors for her foundation, said. annual music festival held at Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak. It is located one hour and 15 minutes north of Gainesville. About 1,900 music lovers, family and friends of Hoffman attended this year, a mated 700 attendees in 2010. According to Levine, 2011 was It was rewarding for everyone who was involved to just break even in the early years, Levine said. Bills come in late and were still tallying expenses, but I believe we made at least $10,000 this year. The proceeds go toward the Morningstar Foundation. Its ambition is to attempt to nationalize Rachels Law as well as strengthen state laws. According to Levine, the bands cant afford to play for free but since The Purple Hatters Ball or less than they would normally charge given the circumstances. A lot of these groups put in a lot of good work early on, now that the festival is on its own feet, it is easier to pay bands, Levine said. We dont want them to play for free, we want to support them. The Heavy Pets, a rock group that blends rhythm and blues, jazz, funk and reggae from Fort Lauderdale, said it enjoys playing for an event with a cause such as this. All weekend the acts on stage reminded the audience of the reason for being at the park. Break Science, an electronic bass music duo, was joined by hip-hop MC Chali 2na. Before the set began, the men had the crowd scream Rachel. Other groups such as Dubconscious, gave inspirational tribute speeches at the end of its sets. The music festival was held in the middle of May for the past three years, and according to Levine, the foundation has no plans to discontinue it. We expect to keep hosting an annual festival, he said. We wont let her be forgotten.The Purple Hatters Ball music festival honors Rachel HoffmanRyan RussellAgainst Me! is a punk band that began in 1997 and once called Gainesville their home base.

Read more at alligatorSports.org.David Carr / Alligator StaffJohnny Magliozzi pitches against USF on April 24. In his Tuesday start against JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writer All it took for No. 3 Floridas offense to come alive was a midweek trip to Samford. Unfortunately for UF, the trek to Alabama knocked its strong pitching down a notch. The Gators tallied seven runs, but gave up 12 in a road loss to the Bulldogs (34-19) on Tuesday. Despite the scoring outburst, Florida played from behind throughout after givThe thing that really, really hurts is we in the middle of the game, coach Kevin OSullivan decided to rest top relievers nings. The bullpen did not fare much better. Ryan Harris, Keenan Kish and Daniel Gibson surrendered seven more runs on a combined eight hits, undoing the Gators midgame rally. Samfords assault on Floridas relief corps did not stop until Bobby Poyner entered the game in the seventh and pitched a scoreless 1.2 frames to end the game. I thought Poyner threw the ball good, OSullivan said. Just disappointed in the middle part of the game there. Some older board. answered with three runs in that same span. Perhaps the most frustrating mistake came Philip Ervin with two outs and nobody on Brandon Miller, hit his nation-leading 20th home run of the season. ning and the second batter in the fourth. Its not real smart baseball, OSullivan said in response to his pitchers hitting batters. After Sundays 2-1 win against Mississippi State, Mike Zunino attributed part of Floridas struggles to bad luck.

But before Moultrie could dream of a national title, she had to make the team. sonville, thought thats all she would ever be at the University of Florida. While softball players around the state were signing Division I scholarships, the only thing Moultrie received after high school was a diploma. Despite earning a spot on the Class 6A AllState Team for three years in high school, as four in 2008, Moultrie never heard from UF softball coach Tim Walton. So she went to him. The incoming freshman took it upon herself to sign up for one of Waltons softball camps that he ran over the summer. coach Walton to see me, Moultrie said. I going to come out and give it my best.

Florida boasted a stacked roster with nine upperclassmen and All-Americans Kelsey Bruder and Stephanie Brombacher. But Walton decided to invite Moultrie back to try out for the team. The 5-foot-4 speedster showed off her patience at the plate and her quickness on the bases. Impressed, Walton made Moultrie the newest member of his squad. ers right now, [Moultrie] would probably be ence before the 2009 season. She is our fastest player on the team so she can come off [the bench] and do a lot of different things. I like that weapon to have there at our disposal whenever we need it. However, rather than charging out of the gates, Moultrie struggled in the early going. She ranked near the bottom of the squad with a .261 average, and in SEC games, she brought up the rear with a .212 hitting clip. (.906) among starters.

With a year under her belt, she skyrocketed from rock bottom to the top of her team with a .389 batting average and 72 hits. 2010, Moultrie made only one error, led the Even she was surprised by the turnaround. that Hes given me, she said.

After earning a spot on the 2010 All-SEC Second Team and a permanent starting role for Florida, Moultrie was ready to assume her upperclassman duties as a leader.

On Jan. 2, 1920, under democratic President Woodrow Wilson, Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer conducted multi-city raids that led to the arrest and extended detention without trial of at least 6,000 people. These arrests were coordinated under the auspices of rooting out anarchists, radicals and revolutionaries in preparation for an inevitable Red uprising known thereafter as the Palmer Raids. Palmers conduct was later repudiated by the fact that no uprising materialized, and public opinion soured at the authoritarian overreach of the Wilson administration. Never criticized or disciplined by Wilson, Palmer remained unrepentant to the end, stating in his 1921 testimony before a Senate hearing, I apologize for nothing that the Department of Justice has done ... I glory in it. I point with pride and enthusiasm to the results of that work; and if ... agents of the Department of Labor were a little rough and unkind ... with these alien agitators, ...

THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 Most of us have probably seen the trailer for Sacha Baron Cohens new movie, The Dictator. Coupled with Cohens antics in interviews and on the red carpet, his latest movie is getting its fair amount of press. Recently he went so far as to irreverently spill the ashes of deceased North Korean leader Kim Jong Il on Ryan Seacrest at the Academy Awards. Ive never been a fan of Cohens work, and Im predicting that his latest movie of the trailer Cohen openly exploits exaggerated Arabic stereotypes. Through these caricatures, Cohen shows a complete disregard and inherent disrespect for the Arabic culture. I dont believe that different cultures should be off-limits from humor; however, theres a thin line between socially acceptable Political comedian Dean Obeidallah, in a column for CNN.com, equated Cohens dictator costume to white actors donning blackface in the late 19th century. Blackface was used in minstrel shows as caricatures of African-Americans. Today, it is openly acknowledged that blackface is blatantly racist. Shouldnt Cohens costume, which does the same for Arabs that blackface did for African-Americans, be held in the same regard? Obeidallah also writes that there are no actors or writers of Arab descent involved in the movie. Ben Kingsley, who co-stars, is of Indian descent and is the only person remotely from the region. The movie would have fared better if it included Arabic writers or actors. Their input would have rendered funnier jokes and representations grounded in reality. The lack of care in assembling the cast and crew shows Cohens disregard of the Arabic culture. He would rather garner cheap laughs than produce a movie with an ounce of authenticity. Cohens depiction of negative Arabic stereotypes is not only racist but also reinforces a deeper political undertone. Recently, the United States was responsible for the removal of several Arabic dictators the latest was It also appears that the U.S. has its sights set on Iran and Syria. Our current political environment makes it impossible for this movie to be silly fun. Cohens main character, Admiral General Shabazz Aladeen, continues to demonize deceased foreign leaders and prolongs the thirst for war. This movie promotes a deep dislike of Arabic culture through false stereotypes Citizens of the U.S. will never quench their thirst for foreign wars if they keep being fed stale, dry and racist jokes. Due to his position in the public eye, his minds of the ignorant. These opinions formed on false stereotypes and extravagant depictions will in turn instigate the need for incessant violence. You will end up with people eating lunch next to you, reading the same textbooks and craving the end of a whole culture. Michela Martinazzi is an art history junior at UF. Her column regularly appears on Tuesdays.Cohens The Dictator reinforces Arabic stereotypesColumnLast semester, the Alligator ran a comic strip that alluded to a scene from an Indiana Jones movie. In the comic, the character, Short Round, who is Asian, inquired about the keyboard clacking noises coming from the study-in led by the Computer and Information Science and Engineering students. His line in the comic is, What that sound? Maybe I step on Chinese fortune cookie? The cartoonist chose to make his lines grammatically incorrect and ultimately portrayed Short Round to be speaking Engrish, not English. This idea perpetuates the stereoable to communicate with correct grammar and converse in a style called broken English. If the editors of the Alligator knew that Short Round was so blatantly stereotyped in the movie, why would they allow this comic to be published in its newspaper? Michael Satyapor, president of the Asian American Student Union, voiced his concern by saying, There are many stereotyped characters in existence and encouraging these ideas is not good. There are so many ways to utilize humor and social commentary without resorting to such nonsense. lander American community at UF and beyond, the Alligator should be informed that the comic was offensive, and messages of disrespect to ones community will not be tolerated. Society has been told that Asian Americans are the model minority group that will choose to stay quiet and behave appropriately, unlike other minority groups that would be Im writing this to speak up against that notion. I want the Alligator staff and the overall UF community to be educated on how media can be used to oppress or stereotype an entire community and how to effectively communicate without doing such things. There should also be more education around ethical decision-making on whether an article or comic should be published. We all have a responsibility to confront and challenge stereotypes and to empower our community by doing so.

MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAvenue WriterVishal Agarwala was tired of bands he loved not touring in Gainesville, so he started his own company to bring his favorite artists here. Now Garage Mahal Presents, the former Grooveshark employees promotions company, has booked close to 40 live shows in Gainesville. Booked artists have included R.A.C., a collective of musicans that remix different genres of music, and the punk band Black Lips. potential audience in Gainesville for a genre of music and then brings in bands with the best live performances. Audience members may not be familiar with every band at a show, but they come expecting a great live concert. community, and its appreciated, Agarwala said. Warren Oakes, former drummer of Against Me! and a client of Garage Mahal Presents, agreed that the company has contributed to bringing live music to Gainesville. Garage Mahal Presents acts as a liaison between bands and seven Gainesville venues including Double Down Live and The Atlantic. Agarwalas staff includes an assistant agent and a street team of about eight people. A freelance designer is used to create promotional material. Two to four shows have been booked by Garage Mahal Presents each month since the companys creation in January 2011. In March, a Garage Mahal Presents concert featuring the Black Lips reached capacity at The Backyard, a venue owned by Oakes. The band hadnt toured in Gainesville since 2009. For several touring bands like the Black Lips, shows in Gainesville are sporadic. Because of travel expenses, some bands refrain from booking shows in Florida. Everyone plays Atlanta because Atlanta is on the way to everywhere, Oakes said. Once you dip into Florida, youre guaranteed to have to backtrack. Oakes also said that Gainesvilles wellconnected community of concert seekers has Audiences have begun to associate the promotions company and its associated venues with high-quality live performances. At this point, people just trust us not to book bad shows, he said. Garage Mahal Presents will relocate to New York this year, Agarwala said. He plans to move from Gainesville in June, leaving his current assistant agent, John Berna, in charge of the company. Eventually, Berna will rebrand the company and Agarwala will continue Garage Mahal Presents in New York. During the summer, the company will try to book more student bands that are unable to tour during the school year, Berna said. Fewer shows have been booked for summer months because of the lack of student population. Its a good time for the transition, he said. Lots of people are out of town.UF grad starts promotion company to brings bands to townRobert Ellis / AlligatorThee Oh Sees, a four-piece from San Francisico drew, large numbers of excited audience members. A fan threw himself into the crowd attempting to surf. Roughly 40 shows have been booked in a year Many bars will continue its beer specials through Saturday of, Alcove Owner Evan Yavelberg said. While a few staple bars such as Stubbies & Steins, The Top and Alcove have offered craft selection for years, newer bars such as Tall Pauls Brew House, House of Beer, The Bull, Looseys and The Midnight have sprouted up to accommodate craft beer demand. The reason I chose Gainesville as a place to open the bar was because of the demand it was an open market, Paul Evans, the 6-foot7-inch owner of Tall Pauls Brew House, said. Florida was relatively late to the craft-beer trend, with major microbreweries emerging only in the last few years. Pioneer states such as California and Colorado saw craft breweries begin brewing in the late 1990s. We were late to the party, but things are starting to evolve, Birkmaier added. Microbrewing is starting to take off a lot of that has to do with tasting rooms. Tasting rooms are small bars attached to the breweries that allow beer drinkers to visit the brewery while tasting permanent and experimental beers. This allows fans to connect with local breweries, it also allows the brewits brewery, instead of the usual three-tiered ery to the distribution company to the bar or restaurant where it is served. Some bars expressed concerns over this week falling during a time when school is on break and beer-loving students and faculty may be out of town. Were in between two semesters, so it will be interesting to see how many people respond to this, Mackowiak said. The art of making beer has surpassed simply going to beer bars, and some take matters into their own hands and experiment with home brewing. The Hogtown Brewers are very strong as well we have a very educated public, Burke said. The homebrew club, which has been around since 1985, provides monthly education and social outings for homebrewers in Gainesville. The club also put on a craft beer festival in April, where it had beer sampling, beer and food pairing, homebrew demonstrations and educational seminars. large beer selections at beer stores Tipples Brews, Gator Beverage and Wards Supermarket.

MICHELLE KLUGAvenue WriterTwo months ago, Sarah Goff and Mike Myers sat outside a colossal empty warehouse in a mountain of old clothes, vinyl records, picture frames and empty vases. They waited. They sold trinkets at yard sales every Saturday. They waited some more. They eventually sold enough to open The Repurpose Project in that warehouse, plies, sculptures and paintings. The Repurpose Project is an organization that collects materials that would normally go to waste and uses them to create art. The establishment, located in downtown Gainesville at 519 S. Main St., is a three-part art studio: a workspace for art creation, a gallery for art display and a reused art supply store. the recycle void, Goff said, toting a purse of great materials out there with no place to go. Goff pointed to a painting and explained that the canvas was found in a Dumpster on UF campus. Artist Christina Rohan salvaged the paint from the Hazardous Waste Collection Center. We ask artists to use 75 percent recycled materials, but they usually use a lot more, Meyers said. The art center encompasses many forms of art such as carvings, collages, jewelry making, crafts and painting. Goff said they attain the reusable materials by donation from individuals and businesses. Businesses spend a lot of money on disposal, and were giving them a place where they can take their waste, Goff said. They can reduce costs, save money and green their business. The Repurpose Project is a volunteerbased gallery, which currently houses eight artists and one intern who helps organize the donated materials. Goff said they hope to start running workshops where they will educate people on certain forms of arts and crafts. Goff has previously worked at Trash to Treasure, a creative reuse center in South Florida. Myers, who met Goff when she was looking for recycled lumber to build a tree house, has been in the recycling business for more than 40 years. He also works to educate children on reuse by holding workshops in Gainesville schools. He hopes to hold similar workshops to teach art with The Repurpose Project. and creating things people can use, Myers said. The Repurpose Project is currently looking for volunteers, artists and people to run education workshops. Its open Mondays 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Fridays 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturdays 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Myers said the center will also be participating in Art Walk Gainesville, an event that connects local artists to the community every last Friday of the month. People seem very excited about what were doing, Meyers said. We get a lot of positive response, Goff added. 10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2012From Trash to Art: Two Locals Start Art Haven for RecyclablesMichelle Klug / AlligatorUPCYCLED ART -Repurpose Project artist and co-founder Sarah Goff organizes and Michelle Klug / Alligator Art studio collects waste and creates a space for local artists

12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2012 THOMAS NASSIFAvenue WriterDear God, Gabel would pray as a teenager, When I wake up tomorrow morning, I want a female body. Against Me! frontman Tom Gabel spoke out last week in a big way, revealing exclusively to Rolling Stone magazine that he is transgender, has spent almost his entire life feeling trapped in the wrong skin and will be undergoing the steps necessary to transition into a woman. That quote, taken from Josh Eells The Secret Life of Tom Gabel in Rolling Stone, Issue 1157, is perhaps the shortest summation of the seemingly hellish personal life of Gabel the life he struggled through as he led the Gainesvillebased Against Me! to become one of the most recognized political-punk bands in the country. From his life as a young teenager in Florida, to Against Me!s rise with Searching for a Former Clarity, to the bands most recent and best-selling record, White Crosses, Gabel has struggled with a condition known as gender dysphoria. As the Rolling Stone article explains it, gender dysphoria is a feeling of intense dissatisfaction and disconnect from the gender you were assigned at birth. Gabel puts it more bluntly, Its a feeling of detachment from your body and from yourself. And its shitty, man. Its really fucking shitty. When Gabels feelings swelled to the point where he decided it was time to transition to presenting as a female, he told his band (I felt like I drop-kicked them in the face) and he told his wife, Heather. The couples 2-year-old daughter, Evelyn, isnt quite old enough to understand. To Gabels intense relief, everyone took it well. His bandmates stood beside him. Heather remained strong for him. The couple will remain together, still as in love as ever. Gabels mom took the news well too. Gabels new name is Laura Jane Grace. She will take hormones and undergo electrolysis treatments that will make her feel and appear more feminine. She might have surgery in a couple of years. Right now, shes just taking it one step at a time. Laura Jane Graces decision is an intensely intimate one, but due to Against Me!s prominence, its a decision that has been left to the scrutiny of millions on the Internet. Fortunately, the punk community that has supported Against Me! for years has responded mainly with support. And the community should be supportive everyone should. The same day Lauras decision made headlines on the websites of every major news source, North Carolina announced its ban on gay marriage. It was clear on that day more than most that we live in a society that is not accepting of all cultures and choices. Living in North Florida, most of us have seen people demonstrate small-mindedness, sometimes on our very own campus, on our very own Turlington Plaza. Many people use religion as their reasoning for rejecting new ideas about marriage, and they certainly would reject a decision like Lauras. This is why every ounce of support is so important and essential at this time. Lauras decision is one that took an enormous amount of bravery, an unimaginable amount of courage; really, the list of adjectives could go on and on. as Lauras, but she demonstrates how willing we all should be to do whatever it takes to carry our lives out the way we want to. Above all, this decision is not one that should make you resenting Lauras decision, ask yourself why. Not only does it not affect you, but Tom is becoming happier by becoming Laura. Doing what makes you happy is, by far, the most punk thing a person can do. Oh, and as for the future of the band; Laura intends to continue on and become the frontwoman of Against Me! Rolling Stone, Imagine me, six-foot-two in heels, fucking screaming in someones face.Against Me! frontman Tom Gabel comes out as transgender column NATALIE TEERAvenue WriterThere was a sea of purple. Jiggling, swaying, jumping and shaking. Waiting for the woman on stage to command them. The woman was Margie Weiss, mother of Rachel Morningstar Hoffman. In May of 2008, Hoffman was acting as an informant for the Tallahassee Police Department when a poorly executed drug sting led to her death. I went to Rachels grave today; Weiss said, but she doesnt live there, she lives here. She gestured to the open air of the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park and the crowd erupted. After Hoffmans death, her family and friends worked to get a bill implemented that requires Florida law enforcement agencies requirements when using police informants. Some of those regulations include assessment of the informants maturity level, age, risk level of the mission and emotional state. In May 2009, Gov. Charlie Crist signed that bill titled Rachels Law. To fund the passing of the law and to celebrate the life of their daughter and friend, the Morningstar Foundation began hosting a music festival in 2008, The Purple Hatters Ball. The festival is named in remembrance of Hoffman, who was often seen at concerts and music festivals wearing a big smile and a fuzzy purple hat. The purple hat is a happy, colorful symbol. It creates a nice, warm memory for our friend, Paul Levine, friend of Hoffman and member of the board of directors for her foundation, said. annual music festival held at Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak. It is located one hour and 15 minutes north of Gainesville. About 1,900 music lovers, family and friends of Hoffman attended this year, a mated 700 attendees in 2010. According to Levine, 2011 was It was rewarding for everyone who was involved to just break even in the early years, Levine said. Bills come in late and were still tallying expenses, but I believe we made at least $10,000 this year. The proceeds go toward the Morningstar Foundation. Its ambition is to attempt to nationalize Rachels Law as well as strengthen state laws. According to Levine, the bands cant afford to play for free but since The Purple Hatters Ball or less than they would normally charge given the circumstances. A lot of these groups put in a lot of good work early on, now that the festival is on its own feet, it is easier to pay bands, Levine said. We dont want them to play for free, we want to support them. The Heavy Pets, a rock group that blends rhythm and blues, jazz, funk and reggae from Fort Lauderdale, said it enjoys playing for an event with a cause such as this. All weekend the acts on stage reminded the audience of the reason for being at the park. Break Science, an electronic bass music duo, was joined by hip-hop MC Chali 2na. Before the set began, the men had the crowd scream Rachel. Other groups such as Dubconscious, gave inspirational tribute speeches at the end of its sets. The music festival was held in the middle of May for the past three years, and according to Levine, the foundation has no plans to discontinue it. We expect to keep hosting an annual festival, he said. We wont let her be forgotten.The Purple Hatters Ball music festival honors Rachel HoffmanRyan RussellAgainst Me! is a punk band that began in 1997 and once called Gainesville their home base.

And theres nothing that would beat riding off in the sunset with a championship trophy in hand. But before Moultrie could dream of a national title, she had to make the team. sonville, thought thats all she would ever be at the University of Florida. While softball players around the state were signing Division I scholarships, the only thing Moultrie received after high school was a diploma. Despite earning a spot on the Class 6A AllState Team for three years in high school, as four in 2008, Moultrie never heard from UF softball coach Tim Walton. So she went to him. The incoming freshman took it upon herself to sign up for one of Waltons softball camps that he ran over the summer. coach Walton to see me, Moultrie said. I going to come out and give it my best. Walton, the reigning Southeastern Conferto an NCAA-record 70 wins and a berth in the But it was a gut feeling he had while watching Moultrie during camp that would mold Waltons success for the next four years. Florida boasted a stacked roster with nine upperclassmen and All-Americans Kelsey Bruder and Stephanie Brombacher. But Walton decided to invite Moultrie back to try out for the team. The 5-foot-4 speedster showed off her patience at the plate and her quickness on the bases. Impressed, Walton made Moultrie the newest member of his squad. ers right now, [Moultrie] would probably be ence before the 2009 season. She is our fastest player on the team so she can come off [the bench] and do a lot of different things. I like that weapon to have there at our disposal whenever we need it. However, rather than charging out of the gates, Moultrie struggled in the early going. She ranked near the bottom of the squad with a .261 average, and in SEC games, she brought up the rear with a .212 hitting clip. (.906) among starters.

It takes time, as any freshman takes time, to get used to the pitching level and things like that. After saying goodbye to First-Team AllFlorida desperately needed a push from the bottom to rise to the top again. Moultrie provided that push. With a year under her belt, she skyrocketed from rock bottom to the top of her team with a .389 batting average and 72 hits. 2010, Moultrie made only one error, led the Even she was surprised by the turnaround. that Hes given me, she said. I never thought coaches and my teammates for helping me to be the best that I can be. Like Moultrie, Walton, too, was shocked that she could walk onto a national champicatalyst within a year. Shes better than anyone could ever exindividual could be that good in such a short period of time. After earning a spot on the 2010 All-SEC Second Team and a permanent starting role for Florida, Moultrie was ready to assume her upperclassman duties as a leader. Not only did Moultrie lead by example on son (she broke six UF single-season records including a .443 batting average and 101 hits), but she led with her calm demeanor. the softball world by advancing to the WCWS for the second time in three years at the end of last season, Moultrie showed the country why she earned her high praise and awards.

She simply said she would try to do what she failed to do last year: win. It is Moultries dedication to her craft that has garnered respect from her teammates. Sophomore Cheyenne Coyle has seen Michelle is a great leader by example, to watch Michelle. And if Michelle does say something, everybody is dead quiet and they er. Walton has seen Moultrie grow into a strong leader for a young team. She has really taken on and embraced that leadership type role that she didnt have in previous years, (because) she didnt have to, Walton said. She has really stepped up into that role.
