Debate grew heated when senators argued about when campaigning for Student Government elections should take place and what the rules should be. The debate was cut short by Sen. Andy Schein. Several Students Party senators left the room in response. Right before exiting, Minority Party Leader Max Stein said, I doubt the presence of quorum. Stein said the Senate did not reach quorum under the UF Constitution, which states quorum has to be a majority of the members of the Senate. However, during the summer, a majority of the active members of the Senate must be present, according to Rules and Procedures. When these requirements are bills can go to a vote. Senate President Aundre Price said there are 86 active members in the Senate, and 44 must be present to vote. The bill modifying election campaign rules passed unanimously. After the meeting, Stein said the students were not being represented well. I felt the Senate was not acting in the best interest of the students, he said.

Willard Merle Newman, 19, of 18001 NE 135th Ave. in WalRonald Andrews, 46, to death in Andrews home on Tuesday. He was also charged for armed burglary. Andrews 15-year-old daughter told police she and Newman had dated for the past four years. Ronald Andrews was strongly opposed to the relationship, and the girl said he threatened Newman with violence but never followed through. The couple broke up two weeks ago, and on Monday, Newman requested the girl return a silver ring he had given her. According to Newmans arrest report, the girl agreed to return it, but said she would make arrangements to do so later. Police gave this account: Andrews and his brother, Joseph, arrived at Ronald Andrews home at 18104 NE 143rd Ave. in Waldo at about 4:50 the day. Joseph Andrews stayed in the kitchen while Ronald Andrews went to see if his daughter was home. According to the arrest report, when Ronald Andrews opened his daughters bedroom door, Joseph Andrews saw him throw up his hands, surprised, and yell, What the hell! What the hell!

licit votes. Campaign activities would start four weeks before the election and end when the polls close. Several students went to the meeting to voice their opinions on the bill, but most of them did not talk. Instead they held up signs like Mohamad Shataras, which read, I want to tell you about elections, but Christina Bonarrigo says I cant. Each sign featured a different author of the bill. Budget and Appropriations Committee chairwoman Christina Bonar rigo, an author of the bill, said the bill is just condensing the campaigning period. This bill doesnt limit free speech, it limits campaigning year-round so Student Government can focus on results, she said. The Senators also passed a bill codes. That bill will be heard again in the Senate next week.

Have a fun and safe weekend, and be sure to check back next week.Memorial Day is a monument to characterThis Memorial Day, perhaps more than most, Im reminded of the contrasts between people and the things they choose to stand for in their lives. With all of the talk coming from the left about the imagined 1 percent versus the beleaguered 99 percent, its very easy to simply tune out these fabricated numbers and carry on. However, there is a number that escapes many people, particularly malcontents who stand around in parks complaining that somebody owes them something the silent 7 percent. Only 7 percent of Americans have worn the uniform us. And when one of these Americans goes into harms way, he or she doesnt go alone. Mothers, fathers, spouses and loved ones all bear the burden of their oaths. But one thing you will never see these men and women doing is standing around whining about their lots in life. People who have lost limbs, vision or hearing, those who have held close friends as they breathed their last and people who might actually have something to complain about they dont. In an all-volunteer force where stilled in every member, self-pity receives no quarter. As a veteran, I take Memorial Day very seriously. For me personally, it is a time to honor my 35 fallen com2nd Battalion, 4th Marines in Iraq in 2004. It is a time when those who served in years past clap a hand on the shoulders of those now in uniform to encourage them, reinforce our bonds and remember those who came before us. It is also a time for those who may have never freedoms that they enjoy, so dearly purchased by others. As I look out at my nation today, I cant help but be both concerned and encouraged by a few things. I am encouraged by the fact that more young people are enthusiastic about volunteering to serve their country than at any time since World War II. and unwavering commitments are breathtaking to behold. Young men and women, many straight out of high school or college, are snatching victory after victory from the enemy under the most wretched of conditions, despite the efforts of irresponsible politicians who continually undercut them at every turn. These are the extraordinary 7 percent who stand in harms way on our behalf every single day. I am also concerned by the politics of envy and the culture of entitlement coming from certain quarters. As they declare their cause a class struggle between the 99 percent and the 1 percent, all the while sipping lattes at Starbucks and tweeting from their iPhones, I cant help but feel that Im watching history repeat itself. Surely these self-absorbed brats spouting their Marxist slogans and platitudes are carbon copies of the miscreants from the 1960s who spat on returning Vietnam veterans and called them baby-killers. Even if one charitably disregards the truly ignorant things theyre saying, their public behavior and hygiene invite the comparison. Still, Im certain that, as our nations history has borne out time and again, the extraordinary freedoms enjoyed by a grateful nation shall be the enduring monument to once again slink back into shamed obscurity.

RONALD POPPO COULD BE THREATENED BY INFECTION. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSA homeless man whose face was mostly chewed off in a bizarre, vicious attack faces a bigger threat from infection than from the injuries themselves, according to experts on facial reconstruction. He will require months of treatment to rebuild his features Though gruesome, such severe facial injuries are generally not life-threatening. The most serious risk to Ronald Poppo as he remained hospitalized Wednesday were germs that may have been introduced by the bites of the naked man who attacked him. One of the 65-year-olds eyes was also gouged out. said Dr. Seth Thaller, the chief of plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Miamis Miller School of Medicine. Its not clear why Poppo was attacked Saturday afternoon by 31-year-old Rudy Eugene alongside a busy highway. Police have released few details, but surveillance video from a nearby building shows Eugene pulling Poppo from the shade, stripping and pummeling him before appearing to hunch over and then lie on top of him. A witness described Eugene ripping at Poppos face with his mouth and growling and killed Eugene. Eugenes younger brother said he was a sweet person who didnt drink much or use hard drugs. I wish they didnt kill him so he could tell us exactly what happened. This is very who asked for anonymity to protect his family. Causeway was one of the goriest they had ever seen. He had his face eaten down to his goatee. The forehead was just bone. No nose, no dent of the Miami Fraternal Order of Police. Poppo has been in critical condition in recent days, but police didnt give an update on his condition Wednesday. Thaller, who is not treating Poppo, and other plastic surgeons said the rebuilding of Poppos face would happen in stages after doctors try to keep his wounds clean, salvage viable tissue and determine a plan for skin grafts. Protecting his remaining eye and maintaining an airway are priorities. To keep the wounds clean, doctors use grafts of the patients skin, cadaver skin or synthetic skin to cover the exposed bone or cartilage, said Dr. Blane Shatkin, a plastic surgeon and director of the wound healing center at Memorial Hospital Pembroke in South Florida. The coverage would act like a dressing, protecting the wound as it heals. Poppos lifestyle and health before the attack could determine how doctors proceed and whether they eventually consider a facial transplant, plastic surgeons said. 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 31, 2012AP Photo Face-chewing victim will likely need surgery, long recoveryLOCAL KATHERINE HAHNAlligator Contributing WriterA local magazine will show the variety of restaurants in Gainesville while raising money for charity Sunday.

A new study conducted by Massive Health shows that Wysocki isnt alone in her late-night junk food consumption. The whole world does it. The study used data from the iPhone application Eatery. It found that healthiness in food consumption decreases by 1.7 percent every hour. Wysocki, a 19-year-old applied physiology and kinesiology sophomore, said the study makes sense.

Rosenthal also said the data found weekends to be unhealthier. Thats when the applications users drank 1.6 times as much beer as on weekdays.Study finds people are more unhealthy than they estimate CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterA new sales tax referendum is creating a rift between the city and county commissions. The controversial initiative aims to fund only public road projects in Alachua County if the county commission decides to put it on the ballot in November. The issue stems from the county commissions decision to kill a sales tax referendum for Gainesvilles Regional Transit System during a meeting on May 22. In January, the county proposed a 1-cent sales tax referendum to fund transportation projects to nine Alachua county cities if approved by voters in November. The county commission requested all nine cities submit transportation projects that could be funded by the proposal. The city commission proposed new bus projects, which includes improved bus stops and replacement buses. On March 29, the county commission voted 3-2 to split the transportation tax into two different referendums: a 3/4-cent sales tax to fund road projects and a 1/4-cent sales tax to fund Gainesvilles public transportation projects. Under the new plan, the city would receive about 24.4 per cent of the $22.5 million raised annually from the 3/4-cent tax and a projected $82.5 million over the next 15 years. The 1/4-cent tax would generate approximately $7.5 million annually and a projected $112.5 million over the same time period. On May 14, the city commission voted 6-1 to approve interlocal agreements with the county for the roads and transit sales tax initiatives. During a county commission meeting on May 22, commissioners voted 3-2 to kill the 1/4-cent transit tax and considered moving the 3/4cent tax to the November ballot. Mark Sexton, Alachua County spokesman, said the commission felt the most important issue was to improve Alachua Countys road infrastructure. Commissioner Thomas Hawkins, however, disagrees with the countys decision to kill the transit sales tax proposal, saying the 1/4cent tax will focus on roads with no funds going to sidewalks. Its fundamentally an ideological opposition to transit and to walksaid. Bob Woods, Gainesville city spokesman, said the city commission will discuss a response to the countys vote during the city commission meeting on June 7.City and county commissions disagree on road projects, taxingChase It also showed healthiness drops later in the day It allows us to get out there and promote our business while making a lot of difference.Ryan Toddowner of Embers Wood Grill

The Avenue is accepting album reviews by tweet this semester. Follow @AlligatorAvenue for more details. KATHRYN VARNAvenue WriterCoffee shops come in many forms chain shops in strip malls, meet-ups for students to discuss literature and play board games or drive-thrus for convenience on the way to work. The CYM Coffee Co., opening June 23 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., offers its own environment as a meeting place to foster creativity and hold events. Itll be more of a community environment than a drive-thru or sitting on a concrete slab in front of the parking lot,said Brad Neal, one of the six co-founders of Cymplify, a life empowerment project that the coffee house is based off of. The coffee shop gets its name, CYM, from a Sister Hazel song titled Change Your Mind. The bands lead singer, Ken Block, is one of the co-founders. The project acts as an extension of the song, with lyrics: If you want to be somebody else/If self/If you want to be somebody else/ Change your mind. Our mission is to have a good time doing meaningful stuff, said Brads brother, Dave Neal, a co-founder. He is a UF alumnus with a degree in anthropology and a background in corporate training. The project was born in Ken Block familys kitchen after discussing what the per fect weekend would be, Ken Block said. What we all kind of agreed to was a perfect weekend would be something where you got to hang out with people you like, where you got to grow personally or professionally, Ken Block said. Block, his wife, Tracy Block and the Neal brothers grew up together in Gainesville. This is all of our home, Brad Neal said. and even though weve kind of ventured off and chased careers in other cities, we all came back to Gainesville. The other co-founders are Tara Blythe, who is involved in the UF Leadership Development Institute, and Joel Cobden, who provides merchandising experience. The group put together personal and professional development experiences to create core values of integrity, camaraderie, fun, growth and giving back. The coffee house will serve as a centralized location for Cymplify to reach out to the community with events and activities such as sponsoring a tennis match in Connecticut, where Cobden lives. We want to do more of that, where we can connect with events we believe in, Dave Neal said. Tracy Block, a mother of three, has plans to start a grassroots parent initiative. The whole Cymplify group is working on a partnership with the UF Leadership Development Institute. The grand opening will also serve as a summer celebration and will feature free coffee, speakers and local artists and musicians. The shop plans to hold similar festivals for each season, Dave Neal said. Strongtree Organic Coffee Roasters will provide beans for the coffee. Gainesvilles Flour Pot Bakery will provide baked goods. The shop is opening in Greenery Square off of Northwest Eighth Avenue. Growing up here, this was a vibrant property, Brad Neal said. Since then, the square has lost some of its luster. This whole house needed some love in the worst kind of way, Brad Neal said, and we were just thrilled to be able to provide some and try to rebuild our community and hopefully help turn our economy and this community around. Brad Brooks, the owner of Gardeners Edge, a plant nursery in Greenery Square, said he is excited about the new business. Its getting a lot more promising now that theyre here, Brooks said, now that theres someone else on the property thats like minded and wants to revitalize this property. To simplify Cymplify, Ken Block sugwhat its all about. It all starts with a cup of coffee, he said.

MICHELLE KLUGAvenue WriterNot many artists can say they have had Jack White as a critic. A Gainesville art trio can. While recently displaying artwork in New York, they had a run-in with the former White Stripes singer. Felici Asteinza, Evan Galbicka and Joey Fillastre are artists who specialize in painting, sculpture, collage and mural at The Church of Holy Colors gallery in downtown Gainesville. Holy Colors is not a church, but the intensity of creating in the space can be a spiritual feeling for those involved. The three artists of Holy Colors met the newly solo White while painting a mural on a large fence outside of the Brooklyn gallery where they were displaying their art. White, who was in town for the funeral of Beastie Boys member Adam MCA Yauch, walked out of the gallery, saw stuck around for a bit to chat and admire their work. You can tell he is really passionate about his projects its inspiring, Asteinza said. will not be their last. They have been on displays in Manhattan and Jacksonville. They are heading to Miami at the end of June and New Orleans in October. Ever since we got this space two years ago, weve been dreaming about traveling to these places, Galbicka said. Though the artists themes and styles are ever-changing, they have completed Florida themed paintings, psychedelic murals, thought provoking collages and large tree sculptures. Many of their paintings have so many acrylic layers that the paint protrudes from the canvas and creates a 3-D sculpture effect. The artists will continue to defy typical art norms when they travel to Miami to create and display art with their new themes, which use donated ropes and animals bones. Ropes really work with painting, 10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 31, 2012 The Church of Holy Colors travel the US to display art SEE HOLY COLORS, PAGE 12 Were trying to get more involved with the community thats really important to us.Felici Asteinzaartist at The Church of Holy ColorsMichelle Klug / Alligator StaffThe Church of Holy Colors is an artist workspace, gallery, music performance area and recording space founded by artists Felici Asteinza, Evan Galbicka and Joey Fillastre in downtown Gainesville.

THURSDAY, MAY 31, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 11 SAMANTHA SOLUMAvenue Writer In the woods off of Southeast 16th Avenue and Williston Road lives 36-year-old Sam Parrish. He built a home there; a tent reinforced with a tarp, a futon, a cot and solar powered lights next to a creek. Parrish has many neighbors and said he hopes that residents of Gainesville will want to join his community. Parrish also built an amphitheater out of logs to create a free music venue where bands can come to play, eat and even sleep. About three years ago, Parrish started a YouTube channel that features his favorite musicians. He made it just in case his laptop broke, that way he would still be able to access his music. Today, the channel, called artisubscribers and 2 million views. The featured bands want to come and play in the amphitheater he built to show their appreciation.

Asteinza said. Its a way to physically get away from the painting and create some space. The art will be displayed June 24 to 28 in the Freedom Tower in downtown Miami, part of Miami Dade College. The artists will partner with different musicians who will play during the creation process. The music will be recorded and played back during the display period. Its going to be an intensive creation process during that week, Galbicka said. Everything will be made on-site. In addition, the artists recently raised more than $8,500 on Kickstarter, an online fundraising platform, to begin converting an old school bus into an eco-friendly touring vehicle that can run on old vegetable oil. Galbicka said they buses to house touring artists and musicians. Portal culture is what weve been calling it, Galbicka added. They are currently looking for the bus and have commissioned a friend to begin converting it as soon as its pur chased. The artists said they enjoy the traveling but also look forward to getting back to Gainesville. Were trying to get more involved with the community thats really important to us, Asteinza said. JESSICA KEGUAvenue WriterBoth Megan Alfaro and Janice Erlacher like wearing bones, stones and vintage clothes. Last summer they decided to turn their style into a business. The result was Bermuda Dream, an online store that sells handcrafted and vintage clothing, jewelry and accessories to customers in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Canada and many countries in Europe. With more than 800 likes on its Facebook page and daily sales for the past two months, co-founder Alfaro said she is certain what now pays half of her bills will eventually pay all of them. Alfaro, 26, graduated last December from Santa Fe College with a degree in graphic design and Erlacher, 25, graduated from UF last May with a degree in anthropology. They began putting their business together as a two-woman operation in June 2011 despite Erlachers approaching move to Los Angeles, giving them only one month to get their online Etsy shop running. Etsy is a website that connects consumers and sellers, similar to eBay, but exclusively for handcrafted and vintage items. We took what we call a fear and loathing in Florida trip from here to Fort Myers in search of the coolest stuff in the state, Alfaro said. For Alfaro, one of the most important reasons behind the business is the idea that consumers should be aware of what clothing companies are doing with their money. In a sense, Im against brands, she said. She thinks Bermuda Dream represents a sort of anti-brand though that doesnt mean they dont have a distinct aesthetic. Likewise for her partner, the idea of sustainability and recycling materials is paramount. Even when we hopefully start making and designing our own clothing in the future, it will always be made from recycled or vintage fabrics or from eco-friendly materials, Erlacher said. The biggest challenges the two have faced have been operating the business from opposite sides of the country and starting it from the ground up. The duo designs, models, crafts and runs everything on the business end themselves. I took business classes as a freshman in college, but that was a long time ago. Everything has been a learning process, and we havent really had a mentor, Erlacher said. Right now, Erlacher is background acting in Los Angeles and networking for Bermuda Dream while on set. Its great, everybody from the wardrobe people to the makeup artists and other actors get to see our stuff, she said In regards to the future, Alfaro said they are working on building their own site and plan on making more items themselves as well as branching into other areas such as home decor and screen printing. Both women say they are passionate about what they do, and to see their hard work paying off literally is the best feeling, especially at a time when so many young people are feeling the pressure to pursue more practical and secure professions. As for the name, Alfaro said it came to her the same day her partner happened to have a dream about them together on a boat, and just as you can get lost in your dreams, you can get lost in the Bermuda Triangle. They have aspirations to one day open their own physical store where they can feature artwork by their friends along with their own work, but in true gypsy fashion, they have no idea where or when that may be. 12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 31, 2012Couretesy of Bermuda DreamJanice Erlacher and Megan Alfaro model their own apparel. The two women started Bermuda Dream, a clothing store that sells vintage and handmade clothing, jewelry and accessories. Recent graduates launch online vintage clothing shop fashionYou shouldnt have to dress a certain way to be associated with a certain style of music or deal with any of the hassles that come with house and bar shows, he said. Im trying to break down those walls and offer a place where musicians and music lovers can come and feel free. people were welcome to stay as long as they wanted. The show was moved to Parrishs living area because of the rain. Free food was served, but donations were accepted. Kiki Chidiac, a 20-year-old economics senior and co-worker of Parrishs, attended the show and brought her hula hoops. I think what Sam is doing is awesome, she said. Im seeing that you can live free and still have a nor mal existence. Parrish works as a chef at Reggae Shack and uses the money he makes to buy food to cook on the open He said he once made apricot-Dijon glazed pork chops but usually gets hot dogs or hamburgers and things that can be bought in bulk and easily shared. One time he found 28 frozen pizzas in a Dumpster, found a way to cook them on the grill and gave them to the homeless. on New Years Day, after reading several books about living free, breaking the chains of the landlord structure and building a community. I got fed up with paying rent and my neighbors a place where I could start something positive where people with like minds can help each other. weeks, but after he started cooking for people in exchange for their stories, he was soon able to call it home and build a community. Its so soothing to go home and read a book by the creek, he said. I never have stress anymore. Although the community is part of Tent City, a southeast Gainesville homeless community that is associated with crime, Parrish insists those who live there only want to help and share the little they have. The featured video on his channel is a song called Community Love Song by the Moon Bandits. The chorus of the song echoes Parrishs main goal: Well have community one day, build a family out of strangers down the way. He plans to have more shows in July and August, and his dream is to eventually have a food truck where he can offer discounts, jobs and leftovers to the homeless. You dont have to be a bum to be homeless and live free, he said. And you dont have to have a home to be a part of something good.Parrish plans to have more concerts TENT CITY, from page 11 HOLy Y COLOOLORS, from page 10The trio of artists have a workshop downtownAsteinza We took what we call a fear and loathing in Florida trip from here to Fort Myers in search of the coolest stuff in the state.Megan AlfaroCo-founder of Bermuda Dream

Florida has struggled to achieve all-around balance since April, and it resulted in a failed bid to win a third straight SEC title.

KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff Writer By now, Tony McQuay has told the story many times. In June 2011, McQuay competed in the U.S.A. Championwith a time of 45.25. to race against Jeremy Wariner, who won the gold medal in the 2004 Olympics and the silver medal in the 2008 Olympics. I had to sleep with that all night, McQuay said. I was like, Man I have to race the second fastest man ever to run the 400. And I thought, Man he won the Olympics, so hes probably going to blow me out of the water, and Im going to embarrass myself. But he didnt embarrass himself. We raced, and I beat him. I ran [44.68], which was my [per sonal record] at that time, and I was excited about it, McQuay said. But I could see he was kind of upset. So then I had something else to worry about because Im thinking, Well, he isnt going to let me beat him in front of all these people the next day Although he was only one race away from becoming the U.S. Champion in the 400m, McQuay didnt always have the love he does now for track. Speed was not something McQuay struggled with. Ever since I was growing up with my friends, Ive always been the fastest kid on the block. It was a gift, McQuay said. In the sixth grade, McQuay was juggling football, band and track. Because of his involvement in so many activities, his grades began to slip and he had to give up one. My dad didnt want me to quit the band because my band director was in band with him, McQuay said. So I quit football and stuck with band and track. Although he gave up football in middle school, McQuay started playing again in high school, and this time, he wanted to get away from track. However, when football season ended, his coach encouraged him to do track. I was hard-headed at one point, McQuay said. I would just say, Coach, I dont need to go to track practice all the time; Im with the football team. His love for football may have been greater, but McQuay knew hed have problems playing the sport past high school. Despite the initial resistance, McQuay credits the support from those close to him, especially his mom ,who was a former track coach, for sticking with track. And his mom, Lynda McQuay, couldnt have been happier about his choice. I was extremely, extremely happy, she said. Football was Tonys heart. I just supported him in whatever he chose, but I was glad he chose track at a collegiate level over football. McQuay had another problem with track injuries. His freshman year of high school was derailed due to a tailbone injury he suffered during football practice. His sophomore year was also cut short. McQuay was stretching when a teammate stepped on his calf and slashed it open with his spikes. During his junior year in high school, McQuay was healthy up until regionals, where a bad start hurt his hamstrings. He ran very well at the state meet his senior year, and we noticed him then, coach Mike Holloway said. In college, his hamstrings caused more problems. The worst instance came during the 2011 NCAA Indoor Championships. I heard a coach from Texas A&M yelling at his athlete, Go now, you need to beat him to straight, McQuay said. I saw him come up on my inside, and he tried to go around me. I guess I reacted to it too suddenly, and I felt it grab on me. I didnt back off of it, I just ran through it. spite the pain, he competed the next day and placed seventh, which earned UF two team points. McQuay spent a majority of the following outdoor season rehabbing from his injury. I actually had to train harder because that injury set me back from where I needed to be, McQuay said. Being in so As the Gators start competition in the NCAA Outdoor NCAA 400m title in the outdoor season to go along with his indoor 400m title that he won earlier this year. leader, but in a quiet way. Hes had a phenomenal career. The junior sprinter will then go on to compete in the Olympic trials at the end of the month in hopes of competing once again for the U.S. For McQuay, competing against the worlds best in London this summer is a shared dream. My mom always talks about the Olympics, McQuay said. Ever since I got to college, I kind of backed away from my love of football and started thinking more about the Olympics. So, at this point, it would be a dream come true to actually go to the Olympics and win. But no matter what happens at the Olympic trials, his mom will still be thrilled with his performance. I dont have any words to express how proud I am of Tony, Lynda McQuay said. Tony just gives so much of himself, and he inspires a lot of his teammates. U.S.A. Championships, McQuay had the same nervous feeling I had so much pressure on me because I knew Jeremy (Wariner) was coming back and wanting to beat me, he said. McQuay recalls guys like Calvin Smith getting out to a good lead, and the other runners passing him on the second curve. But McQuay trusted his coaching. I remember my coach told me, If anybody tries to come up on your inside (on the curve), dont tighten up, just relax theyll come back to you, McQuay said. Once he got around the curve and hit the 80-meter mark, McQuay took off down the homestretch and passed Wariner. The crowd was going crazy, and I was like, Oh, my God, Im winning. Im winning, Im winning, Im winning, Im winning, Im winning, McQuay said. At that point, I just wanted If I could relive that moment, I would relive it every day. It was the best feeling ever.

However, during the summer, a majority of the active members of the Senate must be present, according to Rules and Procedures. When these requirements are bills can go to a vote. Senate President Aundre Price said there are 86 active members in the Senate, and 44 must be present to vote. The bill modifying election campaign rules passed unanimously.

Andrews 15-year-old daughter told police she and Newman had dated for the past four years. Ronald Andrews was strongly opposed to the relationship, and the girl said he threatened Newman with violence but never followed through. The couple broke up two weeks ago, and on Monday, Newman requested the girl return a silver ring he had given her. According to Newmans arrest report, the girl agreed to return it, but said she would make arrangements to do so later. Police gave this account: Andrews and his brother, Joseph, arrived at Ronald Andrews home at 18104 NE 143rd Ave. in Waldo at about 4:50 the day. Joseph Andrews stayed in the kitchen while Ronald Andrews went to see if his daughter was home.

With all of the talk coming from the left about the imagined 1 percent versus the beleaguered 99 percent, its very easy to simply tune out these fabricated numbers and carry on. However, there is a number that escapes many people, particularly malcontents who stand around in parks complaining that somebody owes them something the silent 7 percent. Only 7 percent of Americans have worn the uniform us. And when one of these Americans goes into harms way, he or she doesnt go alone. Mothers, fathers, spouses and loved ones all bear the burden of their oaths. But one thing you will never see these men and women doing is standing around whining about their lots in life. People who have lost limbs, vision or hearing, those who have held close friends as they breathed their last and people who might actually have something to complain about they dont. In an all-volunteer force where stilled in every member, self-pity receives no quarter. As a veteran, I take Memorial Day very seriously. For me personally, it is a time to honor my 35 fallen com2nd Battalion, 4th Marines in Iraq in 2004. It is a time when those who served in years past clap a hand on the shoulders of those now in uniform to encourage them, reinforce our bonds and remember those who came before us. It is also a time for those who may have never freedoms that they enjoy, so dearly purchased by others. As I look out at my nation today, I cant help but be both concerned and encouraged by a few things. I am encouraged by the fact that more young people are enthusiastic about volunteering to serve their country than at any time since World War II. and unwavering commitments are breathtaking to behold. Young men and women, many straight out of high school or college, are snatching victory after victory from the enemy under the most wretched of conditions, despite the efforts of irresponsible politicians who continually undercut them at every turn. These are the extraordinary 7 percent who stand in harms way on our behalf every single day. I am also concerned by the politics of envy and the culture of entitlement coming from certain quarters. As they declare their cause a class struggle between the 99 percent and the 1 percent, all the while sipping lattes at Starbucks and tweeting from their iPhones, I cant help but feel that Im watching history repeat itself. Surely these self-absorbed brats spouting their Marxist slogans and platitudes are carbon copies of the miscreants from the 1960s who spat on returning Vietnam veterans and called them baby-killers. Even if one charitably disregards the truly ignorant things theyre saying, their public behavior and hygiene invite the comparison. Still, Im certain that, as our nations history has borne out time and again, the extraordinary freedoms enjoyed by a grateful nation shall be the enduring monument to once again slink back into shamed obscurity.

RONALD POPPO COULD BE THREATENED BY INFECTION. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSA homeless man whose face was mostly chewed off in a bizarre, vicious attack faces a bigger threat from infection than from the injuries themselves, according to experts on facial reconstruction. He will require months of treatment to rebuild his features Though gruesome, such severe facial injuries are generally not life-threatening. The most serious risk to Ronald Poppo as he remained hospitalized Wednesday were germs that may have been introduced by the bites of the naked man who attacked him. One of the 65-year-olds eyes was also gouged out. said Dr. Seth Thaller, the chief of plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Miamis Miller School of Medicine. Its not clear why Poppo was attacked Saturday afternoon by 31-year-old Rudy Eugene alongside a busy highway. Police have released few details, but surveillance video from a nearby building shows Eugene pulling Poppo from the shade, stripping and pummeling him before appearing to hunch over and then lie on top of him. A witness described Eugene ripping at Poppos face with his mouth and growling and killed Eugene. Eugenes younger brother said he was a sweet person who didnt drink much or use hard drugs. I wish they didnt kill him so he could tell us exactly what happened. This is very who asked for anonymity to protect his family. Causeway was one of the goriest they had ever seen. He had his face eaten down to his goatee. The forehead was just bone. No nose, no dent of the Miami Fraternal Order of Police. Poppo has been in critical condition in recent days, but police didnt give an update on his condition Wednesday. Thaller, who is not treating Poppo, and other plastic surgeons said the rebuilding of Poppos face would happen in stages after doctors try to keep his wounds clean, salvage viable tissue and determine a plan for skin grafts. Protecting his remaining eye and maintaining an airway are priorities. To keep the wounds clean, doctors use grafts of the patients skin, cadaver skin or synthetic skin to cover the exposed bone or cartilage, said Dr. Blane Shatkin, a plastic surgeon and director of the wound healing center at Memorial Hospital Pembroke in South Florida. The coverage would act like a dressing, protecting the wound as it heals. Poppos lifestyle and health before the attack could determine how doctors proceed and whether they eventually consider a facial transplant, plastic surgeons said. 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 31, 2012AP Photo Face-chewing victim will likely need surgery, long recoveryLOCAL KATHERINE HAHNAlligator Contributing WriterA local magazine will show the variety of restaurants in Gainesville while raising money for charity Sunday.

A new study conducted by Massive Health shows that Wysocki isnt alone in her late-night junk food consumption. The whole world does it. The study used data from the iPhone application Eatery. It found that healthiness in food consumption decreases by 1.7 percent every hour. Wysocki, a 19-year-old applied physiology and kinesiology sophomore, said the study makes sense. At night, people dont get cravings for Andrew J. Rosenthal, Massive Healths ous on college campuses. If you go out on a college campus on a Thursday night late, youll see people stophe said. Eatery, the application used in the study, lets users snap photos of food, then record where and when they ate it. Other users rate the food on its perceived healthiness. Rosenthal also said the data found weekends to be unhealthier. Thats when the applications users drank 1.6 times as much beer as on weekdays.Study finds people are more unhealthy than they estimate CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterA new sales tax referendum is creating a rift between the city and county commissions. The controversial initiative aims to fund only public road projects in Alachua County if the county commission decides to put it on the ballot in November. The issue stems from the county commissions decision to kill a sales tax referendum for Gainesvilles Regional Transit System during a meeting on May 22. In January, the county proposed a 1-cent sales tax referendum to fund transportation projects to nine Alachua county cities if approved by voters in November. The county commission requested all nine cities submit transportation projects that could be funded by the proposal. The city commission proposed new bus projects, which includes improved bus stops and replacement buses. On March 29, the county commission voted 3-2 to split the transportation tax into two different referendums: a 3/4-cent sales tax to fund road projects and a 1/4-cent sales tax to fund Gainesvilles public transportation projects. Under the new plan, the city would receive about 24.4 per cent of the $22.5 million raised annually from the 3/4-cent tax and a projected $82.5 million over the next 15 years. The 1/4-cent tax would generate approximately $7.5 million annually and a projected $112.5 million over the same time period. On May 14, the city commission voted 6-1 to approve interlocal agreements with the county for the roads and transit sales tax initiatives. During a county commission meeting on May 22, commissioners voted 3-2 to kill the 1/4-cent transit tax and considered moving the 3/4cent tax to the November ballot. Mark Sexton, Alachua County spokesman, said the commission felt the most important issue was to improve Alachua Countys road infrastructure. Commissioner Thomas Hawkins, however, disagrees with the countys decision to kill the transit sales tax proposal, saying the 1/4cent tax will focus on roads with no funds going to sidewalks. Its fundamentally an ideological opposition to transit and to walksaid. Bob Woods, Gainesville city spokesman, said the city commission will discuss a response to the countys vote during the city commission meeting on June 7.City and county commissions disagree on road projects, taxingChase It also showed healthiness drops later in the day It allows us to get out there and promote our business while making a lot of difference.Ryan Toddowner of Embers Wood Grill

theA v enue THURSDAY, MAY 31, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/THE_AVENUE John Browns Body visits Gainesville: The eight piece band uses reggae as a foundation and incorporates dub, drum and bass in their live shows. The group is playing at Double Down Live located on Southwest Second Avenue tonight. Bermuda Dream: Two Gainesville graduates started their own online shop. Check out the story on page 12. The Avenue is accepting album reviews by tweet this semester. Follow @AlligatorAvenue for more details. KATHRYN VARNAvenue WriterCoffee shops come in many forms chain shops in strip malls, meet-ups for students to discuss literature and play board games or drive-thrus for convenience on the way to work. The CYM Coffee Co., opening June 23 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., offers its own environment as a meeting place to foster creativity and hold events. Itll be more of a community environment than a drive-thru or sitting on a concrete slab in front of the parking lot,said Brad Neal, one of the six co-founders of Cymplify, a life empowerment project that the coffee house is based off of. The coffee shop gets its name, CYM, from a Sister Hazel song titled Change Your Mind. The bands lead singer, Ken Block, is one of the co-founders. The project acts as an extension of the song, with lyrics: If you want to be somebody else/If self/If you want to be somebody else/ Change your mind. Our mission is to have a good time doing meaningful stuff, said Brads brother, Dave Neal, a co-founder. He is a UF alumnus with a degree in anthropology and a background in corporate training. The project was born in Ken Block familys kitchen after discussing what the per fect weekend would be, Ken Block said. What we all kind of agreed to was a perfect weekend would be something where you got to hang out with people you like, where you got to grow personally or professionally, Ken Block said. Block, his wife, Tracy Block and the Neal brothers grew up together in Gainesville. This is all of our home, Brad Neal said. and even though weve kind of ventured off and chased careers in other cities, we all came back to Gainesville. The other co-founders are Tara Blythe, who is involved in the UF Leadership Development Institute, and Joel Cobden, who provides merchandising experience. The group put together personal and professional development experiences to create core values of integrity, camaraderie, fun, growth and giving back. The coffee house will serve as a centralized location for Cymplify to reach out to the community with events and activities such as sponsoring a tennis match in Connecticut, where Cobden lives. We want to do more of that, where we can connect with events we believe in, Dave Neal said. Tracy Block, a mother of three, has plans to start a grassroots parent initiative. The whole Cymplify group is working on a partnership with the UF Leadership Development Institute. The grand opening will also serve as a summer celebration and will feature free coffee, speakers and local artists and musicians. The shop plans to hold similar festivals for each season, Dave Neal said. Strongtree Organic Coffee Roasters will provide beans for the coffee. Gainesvilles Flour Pot Bakery will provide baked goods. The shop is opening in Greenery Square off of Northwest Eighth Avenue. Growing up here, this was a vibrant property, Brad Neal said. Since then, the square has lost some of its luster. This whole house needed some love in the worst kind of way, Brad Neal said, and we were just thrilled to be able to provide some and try to rebuild our community and hopefully help turn our economy and this community around. Brad Brooks, the owner of Gardeners Edge, a plant nursery in Greenery Square, said he is excited about the new business. Its getting a lot more promising now that theyre here, Brooks said, now that theres someone else on the property thats like minded and wants to revitalize this property. To simplify Cymplify, Ken Block sugwhat its all about. It all starts with a cup of coffee, he said.

MICHELLE KLUGAvenue WriterNot many artists can say they have had Jack White as a critic. A Gainesville art trio can. While recently displaying artwork in New York, they had a run-in with the former White Stripes singer. Felici Asteinza, Evan Galbicka and Joey Fillastre are artists who specialize in painting, sculpture, collage and mural at The Church of Holy Colors gallery in downtown Gainesville. Holy Colors is not a church, but the intensity of creating in the space can be a spiritual feeling for those involved. The three artists of Holy Colors met the newly solo White while painting a mural on a large fence outside of the Brooklyn gallery where they were displaying their art. White, who was in town for the funeral of Beastie Boys member Adam MCA Yauch, walked out of the gallery, saw stuck around for a bit to chat and admire their work. You can tell he is really passionate about his projects its inspiring, Asteinza said. will not be their last. They have been on displays in Manhattan and Jacksonville. They are heading to Miami at the end of June and New Orleans in October. Ever since we got this space two years ago, weve been dreaming about traveling to these places, Galbicka said. Though the artists themes and styles are ever-changing, they have completed Florida themed paintings, psychedelic murals, thought provoking collages and large tree sculptures. Many of their paintings have so many acrylic layers that the paint protrudes from the canvas and creates a 3-D sculpture effect. The artists will continue to defy typical art norms when they travel to Miami to create and display art with their new themes, which use donated ropes and animals bones. Ropes really work with painting, 10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 31, 2012 The Church of Holy Colors travel the US to display art SEE HOLY COLORS, PAGE 12 Were trying to get more involved with the community thats really important to us.Felici Asteinzaartist at The Church of Holy ColorsMichelle Klug / Alligator StaffThe Church of Holy Colors is an artist workspace, gallery, music performance area and recording space founded by artists Felici Asteinza, Evan Galbicka and Joey Fillastre in downtown Gainesville.

THURSDAY, MAY 31, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 11 SAMANTHA SOLUMAvenue Writer In the woods off of Southeast 16th Avenue and Williston Road lives 36-year-old Sam Parrish. He built a home there; a tent reinforced with a tarp, a futon, a cot and solar powered lights next to a creek. Parrish has many neighbors and said he hopes that residents of Gainesville will want to join his community. Parrish also built an amphitheater out of logs to create a free music venue where bands can come to play, eat and even sleep. About three years ago, Parrish started a YouTube channel that features his favorite musicians. He made it just in case his laptop broke, that way he would still be able to access his music. Today, the channel, called artisubscribers and 2 million views. The featured bands want to come and play in the amphitheater he built to show their appreciation.

Asteinza said. Its a way to physically get away from the painting and create some space. The art will be displayed June 24 to 28 in the Freedom Tower in downtown Miami, part of Miami Dade College. The artists will partner with different musicians who will play during the creation process. The music will be recorded and played back during the display period. Its going to be an intensive creation process during that week, Galbicka said. Everything will be made on-site. In addition, the artists recently raised more than $8,500 on Kickstarter, an online fundraising platform, to begin converting an old school bus into an eco-friendly touring vehicle that can run on old vegetable oil. Galbicka said they buses to house touring artists and musicians. Portal culture is what weve been calling it, Galbicka added. They are currently looking for the bus and have commissioned a friend to begin converting it as soon as its pur chased. The artists said they enjoy the traveling but also look forward to getting back to Gainesville. Were trying to get more involved with the community thats really important to us, Asteinza said. JESSICA KEGUAvenue WriterBoth Megan Alfaro and Janice Erlacher like wearing bones, stones and vintage clothes. Last summer they decided to turn their style into a business. The result was Bermuda Dream, an online store that sells handcrafted and vintage clothing, jewelry and accessories to customers in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Canada and many countries in Europe. With more than 800 likes on its Facebook page and daily sales for the past two months, co-founder Alfaro said she is certain what now pays half of her bills will eventually pay all of them. Alfaro, 26, graduated last December from Santa Fe College with a degree in graphic design and Erlacher, 25, graduated from UF last May with a degree in anthropology. They began putting their business together as a two-woman operation in June 2011 despite Erlachers approaching move to Los Angeles, giving them only one month to get their online Etsy shop running. Etsy is a website that connects consumers and sellers, similar to eBay, but exclusively for handcrafted and vintage items. We took what we call a fear and loathing in Florida trip from here to Fort Myers in search of the coolest stuff in the state, Alfaro said. For Alfaro, one of the most important reasons behind the business is the idea that consumers should be aware of what clothing companies are doing with their money. In a sense, Im against brands, she said. She thinks Bermuda Dream represents a sort of anti-brand though that doesnt mean they dont have a distinct aesthetic. Likewise for her partner, the idea of sustainability and recycling materials is paramount. Even when we hopefully start making and designing our own clothing in the future, it will always be made from recycled or vintage fabrics or from eco-friendly materials, Erlacher said. The biggest challenges the two have faced have been operating the business from opposite sides of the country and starting it from the ground up. The duo designs, models, crafts and runs everything on the business end themselves. I took business classes as a freshman in college, but that was a long time ago. Everything has been a learning process, and we havent really had a mentor, Erlacher said. Right now, Erlacher is background acting in Los Angeles and networking for Bermuda Dream while on set. Its great, everybody from the wardrobe people to the makeup artists and other actors get to see our stuff, she said In regards to the future, Alfaro said they are working on building their own site and plan on making more items themselves as well as branching into other areas such as home decor and screen printing. Both women say they are passionate about what they do, and to see their hard work paying off literally is the best feeling, especially at a time when so many young people are feeling the pressure to pursue more practical and secure professions. As for the name, Alfaro said it came to her the same day her partner happened to have a dream about them together on a boat, and just as you can get lost in your dreams, you can get lost in the Bermuda Triangle. They have aspirations to one day open their own physical store where they can feature artwork by their friends along with their own work, but in true gypsy fashion, they have no idea where or when that may be. 12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 31, 2012Couretesy of Bermuda DreamJanice Erlacher and Megan Alfaro model their own apparel. The two women started Bermuda Dream, a clothing store that sells vintage and handmade clothing, jewelry and accessories. Recent graduates launch online vintage clothing shop fashionYou shouldnt have to dress a certain way to be associated with a certain style of music or deal with any of the hassles that come with house and bar shows, he said. Im trying to break down those walls and offer a place where musicians and music lovers can come and feel free. people were welcome to stay as long as they wanted. The show was moved to Parrishs living area because of the rain. Free food was served, but donations were accepted. Kiki Chidiac, a 20-year-old economics senior and co-worker of Parrishs, attended the show and brought her hula hoops. I think what Sam is doing is awesome, she said. Im seeing that you can live free and still have a nor mal existence. Parrish works as a chef at Reggae Shack and uses the money he makes to buy food to cook on the open He said he once made apricot-Dijon glazed pork chops but usually gets hot dogs or hamburgers and things that can be bought in bulk and easily shared. One time he found 28 frozen pizzas in a Dumpster, found a way to cook them on the grill and gave them to the homeless. on New Years Day, after reading several books about living free, breaking the chains of the landlord structure and building a community. I got fed up with paying rent and my neighbors a place where I could start something positive where people with like minds can help each other. weeks, but after he started cooking for people in exchange for their stories, he was soon able to call it home and build a community. Its so soothing to go home and read a book by the creek, he said. I never have stress anymore. Although the community is part of Tent City, a southeast Gainesville homeless community that is associated with crime, Parrish insists those who live there only want to help and share the little they have. The featured video on his channel is a song called Community Love Song by the Moon Bandits. The chorus of the song echoes Parrishs main goal: Well have community one day, build a family out of strangers down the way. He plans to have more shows in July and August, and his dream is to eventually have a food truck where he can offer discounts, jobs and leftovers to the homeless. You dont have to be a bum to be homeless and live free, he said. And you dont have to have a home to be a part of something good.Parrish plans to have more concerts TENT CITY, from page 11 HOL Y COLORS, from page 10The trio of artists have a workshop downtownAsteinza We took what we call a fear and loathing in Florida trip from here to Fort Myers in search of the coolest stuff in the state.Megan AlfaroCo-founder of Bermuda Dream

this season, the Wildcats have swiped two bags in three tries. All three attempts came in the second meeting, a 10-1 UF win. Florida has struggled to achieve all-around balance since April, and it resulted in a failed bid to win a third straight SEC title. However, the Gators No. 1 overall seeding and the clean slate offered by the postseason encourage Larson. Weve played very mediocre all year, and I think were all looking forward to starting a new season, he said. and [the No. 1 seed] just shows weve persevered through a lot of things and weve still got everything right in front of us.

During the end, McGee offered some motivation to Perkins. Mandy hadnt been to Regionals I was like, Stay up here, Mandy! and cheering for her in the race. McGee has even altered her racing strategy to help her teammates get into better position. At the Southeastern Conference Outdoor Championships, McGee assumed the role of the rabbit, by taking the lead late in the race and setting a faster pace. McGees maneuver set up Genevieve time of 4:13.44 and the victory. McGee was runner-up. and having so many girls in the race, it helped having Cory take the lead with 600 meters to go, LaCaze said. McGee will be heading to the NCAA Outdoor Championships as the Gators sole competitor for the womens While she will not have her teammates racing with her, McGee is still victory.

KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff Writer By now, Tony McQuay has told the story many times. In June 2011, McQuay competed in the U.S.A. Championwith a time of 45.25. to race against Jeremy Wariner, who won the gold medal in the 2004 Olympics and the silver medal in the 2008 Olympics. I had to sleep with that all night, McQuay said. I was like, Man I have to race the second fastest man ever to run the 400. And I thought, Man he won the Olympics, so hes probably going to blow me out of the water, and Im going to embarrass myself. But he didnt embarrass himself. We raced, and I beat him. I ran [44.68], which was my [per sonal record] at that time, and I was excited about it, McQuay said. But I could see he was kind of upset. So then I had something else to worry about because Im thinking, Well, he isnt going to let me beat him in front of all these people the next day Although he was only one race away from becoming the U.S. Champion in the 400m, McQuay didnt always have the love he does now for track. Speed was not something McQuay struggled with. Ever since I was growing up with my friends, Ive always been the fastest kid on the block. It was a gift, McQuay said. In the sixth grade, McQuay was juggling football, band and track. Because of his involvement in so many activities, his grades began to slip and he had to give up one. My dad didnt want me to quit the band because my band director was in band with him, McQuay said. So I quit football and stuck with band and track. Although he gave up football in middle school, McQuay started playing again in high school, and this time, he wanted to get away from track. However, when football season ended, his coach encouraged him to do track. I was hard-headed at one point, McQuay said. I would just say, Coach, I dont need to go to track practice all the time; Im with the football team. His love for football may have been greater, but McQuay knew hed have problems playing the sport past high school. Despite the initial resistance, McQuay credits the support from those close to him, especially his mom ,who was a former track coach, for sticking with track. And his mom, Lynda McQuay, couldnt have been happier about his choice. I was extremely, extremely happy, she said. Football was Tonys heart. I just supported him in whatever he chose, but I was glad he chose track at a collegiate level over football. McQuay had another problem with track injuries. His freshman year of high school was derailed due to a tailbone injury he suffered during football practice. His sophomore year was also cut short. McQuay was stretching when a teammate stepped on his calf and slashed it open with his spikes. During his junior year in high school, McQuay was healthy up until regionals, where a bad start hurt his hamstrings. He ran very well at the state meet his senior year, and we noticed him then, coach Mike Holloway said. In college, his hamstrings caused more problems. The worst instance came during the 2011 NCAA Indoor Championships. I heard a coach from Texas A&M yelling at his athlete, Go now, you need to beat him to straight, McQuay said. I saw him come up on my inside, and he tried to go around me. I guess I reacted to it too suddenly, and I felt it grab on me. I didnt back off of it, I just ran through it. spite the pain, he competed the next day and placed seventh, which earned UF two team points. McQuay spent a majority of the following outdoor season rehabbing from his injury. I actually had to train harder because that injury set me back from where I needed to be, McQuay said. Being in so As the Gators start competition in the NCAA Outdoor NCAA 400m title in the outdoor season to go along with his indoor 400m title that he won earlier this year. leader, but in a quiet way. Hes had a phenomenal career. The junior sprinter will then go on to compete in the Olympic trials at the end of the month in hopes of competing once again for the U.S. For McQuay, competing against the worlds best in London this summer is a shared dream. My mom always talks about the Olympics, McQuay said. Ever since I got to college, I kind of backed away from my love of football and started thinking more about the Olympics. So, at this point, it would be a dream come true to actually go to the Olympics and win. But no matter what happens at the Olympic trials, his mom will still be thrilled with his performance. I dont have any words to express how proud I am of Tony, Lynda McQuay said. Tony just gives so much of himself, and he inspires a lot of his teammates. U.S.A. Championships, McQuay had the same nervous feeling I had so much pressure on me because I knew Jeremy (Wariner) was coming back and wanting to beat me, he said. McQuay recalls guys like Calvin Smith getting out to a good lead, and the other runners passing him on the second curve. But McQuay trusted his coaching. I remember my coach told me, If anybody tries to come up on your inside (on the curve), dont tighten up, just relax theyll come back to you, McQuay said. Once he got around the curve and hit the 80-meter mark, McQuay took off down the homestretch and passed Wariner. The crowd was going crazy, and I was like, Oh, my God, Im winning. Im winning, Im winning, Im winning, Im winning, Im winning, McQuay said. At that point, I just wanted If I could relive that moment, I would relive it every day. It was the best feeling ever.
