Now, Roberts is a part of the international 8,000-member team that will carry the Olympic torch through the U.K. and end at the opening ceremony July 27.

The Martian Chronicles prophesied the banning of books, especially works of fantasy, a theme Bradbury would take on fully in the 1953 release, Fahr enheit 451. Inspired by the Cold War, the rise of television and the authors passion for libraries, it was an apocalyptic narrative of nuclear war abroad and empty assigned to burn books instead of putting blazes out (451 degrees Fahrenheit, Bradbury had been told, was the temperature at which In 2007, he received a special Pulitzer Prize citation for his dissy. Seven years earlier, he received an honorary National Book Award medal for lifetime achievement, an honor given to Philip Roth and Ar thur Miller, among others. Other honors included an Academy Award nomination for his teleplay of The Halloween Tree. His fame even extended to the moon, where Apollo astronauts named a crater Dandelion Crater in honor of Dandelion Wine, his beloved coming-of-age novel. An asteroid was named 9766 Bradbury. Bradbury is survived by his four daughters. Marguerite Bradbury, his wife of 57 years, died in 2003. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS master spent his life conjuring such visions from his childhood dreams and Cold War fears, spinning tales of telepathic Mar tians, lovesick sea monsters and, in uncanny detail, the high-tech, book-burning future of Fahrenheit 451. I sometimes get up at night when I cant sleep and walk down into my library and open one of my books and read a paragraph and say, My God, did I write that? Did I write that? Because its still a surprise, Bradbury said in 2000. Bradbury, who died Tuesday night at age 91, was slowed in recent years by a stroke that meant he had to use a wheelchair. But he remained active over the years, turning out new novels, plays, screenplays and a volume of poetry. It was a career he often said was inspired by a chance meeting in 1932 with a carnival magician called Mr. Electrico who, at the end of his performance, reached out to the captivated 12-year-old, tapped him with his sword and said, Live forever! Bradburys writings ranged from horror and mystery to humor and sympathetic stories about the Irish, blacks and Mexican-Americans. Bradbury also scripted John Hustons 1956 and wrote for The Twilight Zone, among other television programs, including The Ray Bradbury Theater, for which he adapted dozens of his works. He rose to literary fame in 1950 with The Martian Chronicles, a series of intertwined stories that satirized capitalism, racism and superpower tensions as it portrayed Earth colonizers destroying an idyllic Martian civilization.

Jillian Roberts sister Emily Roberts, a 20-year-old UF communication sciences and disorders and psychology senior, nominated her sister to be a torchbearer. She was chosen by Coca-Cola to be an American torchbearer. The company is also sponsoring the international Olympic torch relay, Coca-Cola spokeswoman Kamari Guthrie said. After Jillian Roberts mentioned the contest to her family, Emily Roberts said she wanted to write her little sisters nomination. In March, Jillian Roberts checked her mailbox at Hume Hall. She said she jumped and ran around the dorm when she read the letter that told her she was among 22 Americans to bear the torch, including ice skater Michelle Kwan and swimmer Summer Sanders, both former Olympians. Emily Roberts said her sister called her and they screamed over the phone together. Jillian Roberts will run with the Olympic torch for 300 meters, which is about three and a half Slough, England, a town between Oxford and London. Coca-Cola will pay for the sisJillian Roberts said she remembers crowding around the living room television at home with her sisters, younger brother and parents to watch the Olympics ever since she was young and cant wait I still am in shock.

Thirty-two other universities were selected for grants, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Case Western Reserve University. James S. Tulenko, professor emeritus in the nuclear engineering program and principal investigator of the project, said the money will let the department establish a three-year program to study the use of diamond nanoparticles on fuel rods. The money will allow us to employ two full-time graduate assistants and two undergraduate assistants, Tulenko said.

Now, his two kids are growing up to be Jaguars supporters. Joshi, a UF alumnus, brought son Arjun, 9, and daughter Neelam, 5, to the Gainesville stop on the Jacksonville Jaguars Caravan Tour on Wednesday. Its an amazing feeling as a dad were just happy, Joshi said. When they grow up, theyll realize the magnitude of this. Former Gators football players Fred Taylor, Jer emy Mincey and head coach Mike Mularkey were among the Jaguars to sign autographs and take pictures with fans. New owner Shahid Khan launched the Jaguars Caravan to rally support for the franchise in South Georgia and North Florida. Jacksonville itself is a small city compared to most NFL cities, so we need to regionalize, Joshi said.

Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org.Jacksonville Jaguars visit GainesvillePUBLIC HEALTH LINDSEY CARMANAlligator Contributing WriterA UF mental health team will launch a new online treatment for anxiety in the fall. The program, offered by the UF Counseling and Wellness Center, will be pilot-tested and compared with more traditional treatments such as face-to-face and group therapy. The most common reason for students to withdraw from college is mental health problems, UF psychology professor Laurie Mintz said. On average, students wait four to six weeks to begin treatment at UF. The online program will eliminate patients waiting time by one-third to one-half. The most important thing is that students get good treatment, said Sherry Benton, director of the center. But being on a waiting list is hardly good treatment. The program consists of seven sessions and takes seven to 10 weeks to complete. Each session includes assessments, videos and exercises. Patients will have access to an online support group through chat rooms monitored by a therapist. During each session, therapists will review assignments and conduct a 10to 15-minute phone call or video chat consultation with each patient. Treatment is open to any UF student suffering from anxiety. Interested students should contact the Counseling and Wellness Center. If the program is successful, Mintz said the team will further research online therapy for other mental health issues, such as depression and eating disorders.UF Counseling and Wellness Center to offer online anxiety treatment

Well, this week was certainly more tame than last week. No ones face was eaten off, no one threw their intestines at police and it appears as though no one was caught eating someone elses vital organs. In fact, all we heard about was some boring election in Wisconsin in which nothing changed. Oh yeah, this, of course, brings us to this weeks aw-man-looks-like-nozombie-apocalypse-after-all-but-the-year-2012-is-onlyhalfway-over edition of...Darts & LaurelsFirst, we must ask the question: Are people really that stupid? Because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had to issue a statement denying the existence of zombies or a zombie apocalypse, we throw a man-reading-thenews-is-really-hard DART at people. Come on, people. Although its entertaining to talk about, theres no zombie apocalypse. Speaking of brains, we give a common-sense-1-pryingpoliticians-0 LAUREL to the Florida Department of Transportation for refusing to lower the speed limit on Interstate 75 through Paynes Prairie, despite pleas from Gainesville and Alachua County commissioners. Speed was not the problem; heavy smoke caused the crash in the spring. Its not rocket science. Sometimes, things dont go according to plan. Thats why were throwing a youre-doing-it-wrong DART at Charles Estell, who was found stuck in an air duct after attempting to steal $100,000 from a Chicago bank vault. Estell will probably cut back on the sweets before attempting his next heist. For some more somber news, we give a thank-you-formaking-us-think-about-books-and-censorship LAUREL to Ray Bradbury, author of Fahrenheit 451 and The Martian Chronicles, among other books. Bradbury died Tuesday at the age of 91. Tuesday evening, Venus could be seen crossing in front of the face of the sun, a rare cosmic spectacle that wont happen for another 105 years. Thats why were giving a guess-well-have-to-wait-until-the-year-2117-to-watch-a-tiny-black-dot-cross-the-sun DART at the weather. What the hell, rain? Cut us some slack so we can look at cool space stuff. Finally, we give a you-should-probably-make-a-specialty-pizza-called-the-phoenix LAUREL to Satchels Pizza, which announced it would be reopening on June 14. months ago. Best of luck on your reopening. Howard Zinn, hate mail and ponytailsOne of the really stimulating things about writing this column is the fact that I receive scathing critiques from people of differing views on everything from my thoughts and ideas to my personal character and anything else imaginable. Every now and then, somebody puts forth something so ripe for exposition that I cant resist a response. In this case, Im reminded of the scene in Good Will Hunting where Matt Damon is upbraiding a condescending, pony-tailed history student in a bar for trying to show others how smart he is by making someone else feel stupid. It was a marvelous scene. est angry critic, the author Howard Zinn is glowingly cited. Obviously, as an unenlightened conservative, I couldnt possibly know anything of the great Zinn. He is, however, one of my favorite subjects. Hes a progressive hero of great renown and an utter failure as a historian. Zinn is most famous for his hugely successful volume A Peoples History of the United States, which has sold more than a million copies and has been taught in countless classrooms in high schools and universities since its original publication in 1980. Most students have probably been exposed to it at some point. A Peoples History positively drips with a deep-seated hatred for all things American, placing the country simultaneously at the center of the moral universe while also blaming her for nearly every ailment of humanity since her founding. Naturally, Zinn has been lionized by the radical left for writing what may be the most widely read Marxist indoctrination tract ever circulated. As an example of what I mean by calling him a failure as a historian, Ive gathered some of the quotes of his own left-leaning peers regarding his work actual historians still hewing the mark of facts over agenda. Of Zinn, Arthur Schlesinger Jr. remarked, I dont take him very seriously. Hes a polemicist, not a historian. In his review of A Peoples History in The American Scholar, Harvard professor Oscar Handlin denounced the deranged quality of his fairy tale, in which the incimatter how intractable the evidence of American history. Even socialist Georgetown historian Michael Kazin declared A Peoples History is bad history, albeit gilded with virtuous intentions. Zinn reduces the past to a Manichean fable, while maintaining Zinns narrative is grounded in a premise better suited to a conspiracymongers website than to a work of scholarship. Zinn, in his own words, stated, I got into history because I was already an activist at the age of 18 So when I began to study history and began to think about being a teacher and writing history, I already understood that I was not going to be a neutral teacher. I was not going to simply be a scholar I wanted my writing of history and my teaching of history to be a part of social struggle Answering accusations of intellectual dishonesty, Zinn declared, Objectivity is impossible and it is also undesirable. While Im not surprised at this mans popularity in certain quarters, I take issue with the great man being called a historian. Call him what he really was: an activist, dissident and liar. Apparently, teaching ideology over facts, lying to millions and using patent falsehoods to indoctrinate hatred of ones own country can net you fortune, fame and a huge celebrity cult following while also providing ample ammo for angry, pony-tailed Alligator letters. Well, how do you like those apples? Joshua Fonzi is a microbiology and cell science and entomology and nematology senior at UF. His column appears on Thursdays. Joshua Fonziopinions@alligator.org

LOCAL SHELBY WEBBAlligator WriterThe double-wide trailer was part of the dream. Its exterior was browned from exposure, and some of the windows were covered with ducttaped plastic. Piles of PVC pipes and wood sat nearby, waiting to be fashioned into something useful. The rest of the eight acres boasted neat rows of vegetables at all stages of growth. Even if only one leaf was poking out of the ground, Jose Landrua could identify it. These are dandelion greens, he said. Theyre really good for liver detox if you have jaundice or if you drank too much. It seems like hes been farming for decades. But Jose Landrua isnt even 30, and he didnt know anything about farming until he moved to Alachua County this January. The 23-year-old said he needed a change from his life in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. As a high school dropout, he worked odd jobs after he and his brother moved to Fort Lauderdale in 2007, including a stint as a commercial swordHe decided to start an organic farm and called his 21-year-old brother, Javier Landrua, to come join him, though neither had any experience. Its the hardest, best thing Ive ever done, Jose Landrua said. He said hes found his calling, but Jose Landrua wasnt always sure what he wanted to become. to visit a friend. He found a community that per suaded him to make the move permanent. He asked his brother to quit his job and move to Alachua to help him start an organic farm. Javier Landrua, who was working as a deliveryman in Tallahassee, jumped at the opportunity. I was waiting for him to come up with something great for us to do, Javier Landrua said. Jose Landrua got in contact with a local farmer who was planning on leaving his farm near Alachua in the next few months. The farmer, whom Jose Landrua declined to name, offered to show him the ropes. farm looked like a Third World country. Jose Landrua said the farmer gave misleading instructions. He withheld money and a list of people who paid for shares of the crop. he owed, Jose Landrua felt like he hit rock bottom. Enter Chuck Crawford. He stopped by the farm in February and saw the shambles left for the Landrua brothers. Crawford decided he needed to help. They were screwed, he said. I knew the old farmer, and I knew he wasnt doing it right. Crawford, 52, an experienced farmer, spent an A few nights later, the brothers huddled unwhen Crawford came to check on them. The next night, Crawford brought six handmade quilts. He was such a blessing, Jose Landrua said, wiping away tears. I dont know what we would have done without him. Theyre like my kids, Crawford said. I wasnt going to let anybody freeze. Eventually, Jose Landrua compiled a small list of those who paid for crop shares after a few weeks vending at the Union Street Farmers Market. The brothers are scraping by but happy. Jose Landrua smiles as he plants leaves that will soon mature into peppers. He said he feels a per sonal connection to the land he works. This whole experience has opened my eyes, Jose Landrua said.

KATHRYN VARNAvenue WriterIn 2011 a group of Gainesville residents came together with a common goal: support the local food economy. The Citizens Co-op was born, and ing a farmers market Sundays from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. behind the store. Our intent from the start has been to offer as much local food as possible, Kathy Whipple, 46, one of the managers of the co-op, said. There were vendors who were selling their food inside the co-op, Whipple said, but when the agriculture inspector came through, a lot of the vendors didnt have permits to sell food there. So in order to offer them an outlet, we decided to hold the farmers market once a week in the backyard, Whipple said. The farmers market has a variety of vendors and musicians who per form throughout the afternoon. Kitty Moss, 34, from Cloudwalker Farms in Lake City, had a stand made with duck eggs. Duck eggs make everything Those who are allergic to chicken eggs can eat duck eggs. The duck eggs are easier to digest than chicken eggs and nutritious for chemotherapy patients, Moss said. Moss, who is working on her Associate of Arts in agriculture at Santa Fe College, wants to start breeding certain types of livestock that are on the verge of becoming extinct, called heritage animals. She also wants to expand to growing produce using heirloom seeds, which are the plant equivalent of heritage animals, Moss said. Next to Moss is the Hoggtowne Lemonade Co., operated by Adam Streifel, 27, and Rachel Valencia, 27. The stand has gourmet lemonlavender to strawberry chocolate mint to classic lemonade. The company began with Streifel concocting lemonades with nutritious ingredients to help Valencia eat healthier with her busy schedule. We wanted an alternative to soda and sweet tea, Valencia said. The pair brought their lemonade to the Citizens Co-ops market dur ing the Hogtown HomeGrown 2012 Eat Local Challenge in May. Farmers markets are bringing back the whole community feel to people, Streifel said. Oak Hollow Cottage is beside the lemonade stand, with husband and wife Mike McCarthy, 48, and Pat McCarthy, 54, of Hawthorne. The stand features jams, sauces, marinades, butters, rice mixes and homemade jewelry by Pat McCarthy. The couple worked together at a cafe in Lansing, Mich.

Her stand offers Greek food, including eggplant with feta cheese, baklava and grape leaves. Past Dionisi is the Citizens Coop store, where Whipple works to achieve the farmers markets goal. It helps us because it attracts people, Whipple said, and it helps the vendors have a low-cost place to sell their goods. It costs $5 to have a stand in the farmers market, and vendors can apply on the website. It has turned out to be something of an incubator, Whipple said. Its one of the ways that we are building the local food economy.

THURSDAY, JUNE 7, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 11 MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAvenue WriterWhen Kim Kruse was a child, her grandmother would sew clothing for her and her sister. Last weekend, the now 37-yearold closed her sewing studio, Sew Make Do and began preparing garments for a child of her own. About 10 times a month, UF students and Gainesville residents tar sewing studio. At the six sewing stations inside, they learned to sew, knit and quilt. Its nice to have a place where [people] feel like they can get together, she said. Kruse, a UF employee, opened Sew Make Do in October 2011. For the three years prior to Sew Make Do opening she taught classes through the Alachua County Library District and UF Leisure Course program. Kruse was tired of transport ing heavy sewing equipment to the classes she taught. She used to have to teach in whichever room in the Reitz Union was unoccupied, including the basement. I wanted to create a welcoming space for people who are in creative classes to come and learn, she said. Kruse plans to continue teaching at Chickadee Shops, a fabric store in the Oaks Mall Plaza. She will keep a list of her classes on www.SewMakeDo.com, scheduling them around her pregnancy.

Knotted in a 1-1 tie against Georgia Tech, Zunino got a fastball at belt level to lead off the top of the fourth. Zunino hit the top of the ball and was able to backspin it out for a go-ahead home The junior catchers long ball spurred 20 UF runs in the next 15 innings. It was a big emotional lift for us when youre in the middle of the order like that, coach Kevin OSullivan said. Mikes home run was a big emotional lift for our team. As the nations home-run leader with 71 this season, Florida boasts one of the nations most productive lineups. While NC State ranks second in the Atlantic Coast Conference with just 22 homers surrendered this season, the Wolfpack believes their bats will help them keep up with the Gators. I know that theyre the No. 1 team, I know everything about them, N.C. State coach Elliott Avent said. Were as good offensively as weve been all year. Florida did plenty to maintain its power-hitting reputation dur ing the NCAA Gainesville Regional. Zunino hit two home runs during the weekend, including his team-leading 18th Sunday. The No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft lined bleachers to give the Gators a 7-0 lead against the Yellow Jackets in the bottom of the second Sunday. I was looking for a good pitch to hit and tried to put a good swing on it, Zunino said. It was one of the better, well-hit ones this year. Preston Tucker added a home run in the top of the ninth last Saturday. With Nolan Fontana of the season crossed Stadium Road in the air and landed at Keys Residential Complex on the UF campus. Casey Turgeon even took a turn as the slugger last weekend. Named the NCAA Gainesville Regionals Most Outstanding Player, Turgeons fourth home run of the season was a three-run shot to put Florida ahead 4-0 Friday. For anybody on their team to impressive, Bethune-Cookman coach Jason Beverlin said Friday. For [Turgeon] to do it, its very impressive. It really is. Thats as good as hes going to hit a ball. Theres no doubt. While the Gators strength comes from their power bats, they showed they could manufacture runs without hitting baseballs over the fence last weekend. Florida scored 16 of its 25 runs on non-homers. However, the Gators most encouraging offensive development last weekend was clutch hitting. Florida registered 16 two-out RBI during the weekend, including 11 Sunday. With two outs, with this kind of lineup we have, you know anything can happen, Tucker said. Just try to get somebody on. See what happens.

He opened up in the 400 meters with a new outdoors personal record, beating his previous time of 44.68, which was set at the USA Championships. Tony was phenomenal tonight, coach Mike Holloway said. Hes been training well and for him to come out and run the fastest time in the NCAA this year and the second-fastest in the U.S., I think it really gave us great momentum to start NCAAs. He works really hard and puts in the effort and today was proof of that. As the day went on, the performances began to fall short of expectations. sprinter Lanie Whittaker placed 10th over nals.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESSJACKSONVILLE Sitting between his coach and general manager, Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Justin Blackmon stared at the ground for much of the 18-minute news conference Wednesday. He looked every bit like a kid in trouble. Blackmon apologized for his poor judgment, vowed to learn and grow from his latest alcoholrelated arrest and insisted he doesnt have a drinking problem. Nonetheless, he swore off alcohol for now. People are going to think what they are going to think, Blackmon said. Words are words. Its my actions that are going to have to show. Stillwater, Okla., early Sunday after a breath test allegedly showed his blood alcohol content to be three times the legal limit. He appeared in an Oklahoma courtroom Monday and pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor count of driving under the remain free on $1,000 bond. His next court date is July 24, three days before training camp. In the meantime, he has plenty of work to do to restore his image. I just want to apologize and let people know that its not who I am, thats not who Im going to be, he said. It was Blackmons second alcohol-related incident in less than two years. He was arrested on a misdemeanor DUI charge in Texas in 2010 on a suburban Dallas highway. The charge was later reduced to an underage alcohol possession charge. He might not be so lucky this time around. Although jail time is unlikely, Blackmon could end up on probation. He also could be suspended by the NFL, and Jaguars general manager Gene Smith said the arrest could affect contract negotiations. Jacksonville traded up to select the former Oklahoma State star with At the time that we made the selection, we felt very good about the selection, Smith said. And I still do because I feel like Ive got to take a man for his word. We have a chance to get him right. Hes a young player and hes got to do his part. Blackmon declined to answer several questions about that night, citing the pending legal process. But he made it clear he doesnt feel like he has a drinking problem. I do not, he said. I just think I made a poor choice. I put myself in a bad situation. Its completely my fault. Ive just got to make better judgment on that. He said he would do whatever the league and the Jaguars ask of him. But he added that hes up for the challenge of getting on the right path and staying there. I know they put a lot of pressure on me, but I put more pressure on myself to make this right and Im going to put more pressure on myself, continue to do that, get out of this situation and to make it right, he said. Its all about growing from your mistakes, learning from them and maturing and trying not to make the same ones over again. His big bombshell was that he has given up alcohol, at least for now. Im done, he said. Right now, Im done with all that. ... I cant promise you 10 years down the road that Im going to be done. I just know that as of right now and what I can speak of. Im looking forward to getting ready to play football and putting this in the past. THURSDAY, JUNE 7, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 19 NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUEJaguars receiver Blackmon giving up alcohol after DUI arrest FINAL GAME AS A CAVALIER WAS A GAME 6 PLAYOFF LOSS TO CELTICS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MIAMI LeBron James appreciates the irony. Matching up against the Boston Celtics, on the road, with the season on the line. He faced it in 2008 and lost. He faced it in 2010 and lost, removing his Cleveland Cavaliers jersey for And now in a championship-or-bust season for the Miami Heat, James heads back to Boston for another win-or-else game. The Celtics lead the Heat 3-2 in the Eastern If they succeed in Game 6 or Game 7, if it comes to that all three of those most recent Boston trips to the title round would come at James expense. three wins. His 19 games there since have also resulted in three wins. No team, maybe no other building, has befuddled James as much as the Celtics and the arena they call home. Hes had a 45-point effort there in a loss, a 42-point effort there in a loss, a 27-point, 19-rebound, 10-assist effort there in a loss. Another loss on Thursday, and his ninth season will end as the previous eight did without a championship. I know how much pain this team has given me over the years, James said. So I guess its only right that we would be going up there in an elimination game. In order for us to keep our season going, weve got to win in their building. So thats what its about. Its no secret that the expectation both internally and externally for the Heat is to win championships. Thats what James famously vowed to get when he came to Miami in July 2010, and after losing in last seasons Heat in what the team has steadfastly referred to as a no-excuse season. James won his third MVP award this season. Hes averaging 29.9 points in the playoffs, six points better than his pace from a year ago and one-tenth of a point away from Kobe Bryant for the leagues postseason lead in that department. And if Miami loses on Thursday night, the Heat season and James will go down in most circles as a failure. We have to do this together, Heat forward Chris Bosh said. Hes going to do what hes supposed to do, and were going to do what were supposed to do. Were going to do it together. We live and die together. You cant just single him out. People have to stop doing that. Its a team sport. If he per forms, hes going to perform, and hes going to do his job. Even with the Heat down in the series after a 94-90 home loss the previous night, Wednesdays practice in Miami did not have a funereal mood. James was chatting and laughing as he shot free throws with some teammates toward the end of the workout, not far from where Heat President Pat Riley sat at his customary table to watch the proceedings. Mike Miller and Udonis Haslem teased each other about how much the other read, or didnt read, while enrolled at Florida. Mario Chalmers and assistant coach David Fizdale were talking about nuances of Boston guard Ray Allens game. I think were all disciplined enough to compartmentalize and focus on the challenge that we have ahead of us, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. It never is easy on your journey to try to be an NBA champion. Youll always have these tough moments where you have to come together and go through that moment together. You cant skip it. There isnt an easy way.Elimination game in Boston brings familiarity for Miamis JamesJames AP PhotoJaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon (center) speaks at a press conference Wednesday addressing his recent DUI arrest.

The Martian Chronicles prophesied the banning of books, especially works of fantasy, a theme Bradbury would take on fully in the 1953 release, Fahr enheit 451.

Seven years earlier, he received an honorary National Book Award medal for lifetime achievement, an honor given to Philip Roth and Ar thur Miller, among others. Other honors included an Academy Award nomination for his teleplay of The Halloween Tree. His fame even extended to the moon, where Apollo astronauts named a crater Dandelion Crater in honor of Dandelion Wine, his beloved coming-of-age novel. An asteroid was named 9766 Bradbury. Bradbury is survived by his four daughters. Marguerite Bradbury, his wife of 57 years, died in 2003. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS master spent his life conjuring such visions from his childhood dreams and Cold War fears, spinning tales of telepathic Mar tians, lovesick sea monsters and, in uncanny detail, the high-tech, book-burning future of Fahrenheit 451. I sometimes get up at night when I cant sleep and walk down into my library and open one of my books and read a paragraph and say, My God, did I write that? Did I write that? Because its still a surprise, Bradbury said in 2000. Bradbury, who died Tuesday night at age 91, was slowed in recent years by a stroke that meant he had to use a wheelchair. But he remained active over the years, turning out new novels, plays, screenplays and a volume of poetry. It was a career he often said was inspired by a chance meeting in 1932 with a carnival magician called Mr. Electrico who, at the end of his performance, reached out to the captivated 12-year-old, tapped him with his sword and said, Live forever! Bradburys writings ranged from horror and mystery to humor and sympathetic stories about the Irish, blacks and Mexican-Americans. Bradbury also scripted John Hustons 1956 and wrote for The Twilight Zone, among other television programs, including The Ray Bradbury Theater, for which he adapted dozens of his works. He rose to literary fame in 1950 with The Martian Chronicles, a series of intertwined stories that satirized capitalism, racism and superpower tensions as it portrayed Earth colonizers destroying an idyllic Martian civilization.

Jillian Roberts sister Emily Roberts, a 20-year-old UF communication sciences and disorders and psychology senior, nominated her sister to be a torchbearer. She was chosen by Coca-Cola to be an American torchbearer. The company is also sponsoring the international Olympic torch relay, Coca-Cola spokeswoman Kamari Guthrie said. After Jillian Roberts mentioned the contest to her family, Emily Roberts said she wanted to write her little sisters nomination. In March, Jillian Roberts checked her mailbox at Hume Hall. She said she jumped and ran around the dorm when she read the letter that told her she was among 22 Americans to bear the torch, including ice skater Michelle Kwan and swimmer Summer Sanders, both former Olympians. Emily Roberts said her sister called her and they screamed over the phone together. Jillian Roberts will run with the Olympic torch for 300 meters, which is about three and a half Slough, England, a town between Oxford and London.

The program, offered by the UF Counseling and Wellness Center, will be pilot-tested and compared with more traditional treatments such as face-to-face and group therapy. The most common reason for students to withdraw from college is mental health problems, UF psychology professor Laurie Mintz said. On average, students wait four to six weeks to begin treatment at UF. The online program will eliminate patients waiting time by one-third to one-half. The most important thing is that students get good treatment, said Sherry Benton, director of the center. But being on a waiting list is hardly good treatment. The program consists of seven sessions and takes seven to 10 weeks to complete. Each session includes assessments, videos and exercises. Patients will have access to an online support group through chat rooms monitored by a therapist. During each session, therapists will review assignments and conduct a 10to 15-minute phone call or video chat consultation with each patient. Treatment is open to any UF student suffering from anxiety. Interested students should contact the Counseling and Wellness Center. If the program is successful, Mintz said the team will further research online therapy for other mental health issues, such as depression and eating disorders.UF Counseling and Wellness Center to offer online anxiety treatment

Well, this week was certainly more tame than last week. No ones face was eaten off, no one threw their intestines at police and it appears as though no one was caught eating someone elses vital organs. In fact, all we heard about was some boring election in Wisconsin in which nothing changed. Oh yeah, this, of course, brings us to this weeks aw-man-looks-like-nozombie-apocalypse-after-all-but-the-year-2012-is-onlyhalfway-over edition of...Darts & LaurelsFirst, we must ask the question: Are people really that stupid? Because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had to issue a statement denying the existence of zombies or a zombie apocalypse, we throw a man-reading-thenews-is-really-hard DART at people. Come on, people. Although its entertaining to talk about, theres no zombie apocalypse. Speaking of brains, we give a common-sense-1-pryingpoliticians-0 LAUREL to the Florida Department of Transportation for refusing to lower the speed limit on Interstate 75 through Paynes Prairie, despite pleas from Gainesville and Alachua County commissioners. Speed was not the problem; heavy smoke caused the crash in the spring. Its not rocket science. Sometimes, things dont go according to plan. Thats why were throwing a youre-doing-it-wrong DART at Charles Estell, who was found stuck in an air duct after attempting to steal $100,000 from a Chicago bank vault. Estell will probably cut back on the sweets before attempting his next heist. For some more somber news, we give a thank-you-formaking-us-think-about-books-and-censorship LAUREL to Ray Bradbury, author of Fahrenheit 451 and The Martian Chronicles, among other books. Bradbury died Tuesday at the age of 91. Tuesday evening, Venus could be seen crossing in front of the face of the sun, a rare cosmic spectacle that wont happen for another 105 years. Thats why were giving a guess-well-have-to-wait-until-the-year-2117-to-watch-a-tiny-black-dot-cross-the-sun DART at the weather. What the hell, rain? Cut us some slack so we can look at cool space stuff.

Best of luck on your reopening. Howard Zinn, hate mail and ponytailsOne of the really stimulating things about writing this column is the fact that I receive scathing critiques from people of differing views on everything from my thoughts and ideas to my personal character and anything else imaginable. Every now and then, somebody puts forth something so ripe for exposition that I cant resist a response. In this case, Im reminded of the scene in Good Will Hunting where Matt Damon is upbraiding a condescending, pony-tailed history student in a bar for trying to show others how smart he is by making someone else feel stupid. It was a marvelous scene. est angry critic, the author Howard Zinn is glowingly cited. Obviously, as an unenlightened conservative, I couldnt possibly know anything of the great Zinn. He is, however, one of my favorite subjects. Hes a progressive hero of great renown and an utter failure as a historian. Zinn is most famous for his hugely successful volume A Peoples History of the United States, which has sold more than a million copies and has been taught in countless classrooms in high schools and universities since its original publication in 1980. Most students have probably been exposed to it at some point. A Peoples History positively drips with a deep-seated hatred for all things American, placing the country simultaneously at the center of the moral universe while also blaming her for nearly every ailment of humanity since her founding. Naturally, Zinn has been lionized by the radical left for writing what may be the most widely read Marxist indoctrination tract ever circulated. As an example of what I mean by calling him a failure as a historian, Ive gathered some of the quotes of his own left-leaning peers regarding his work actual historians still hewing the mark of facts over agenda. Of Zinn, Arthur Schlesinger Jr. remarked, I dont take him very seriously. Hes a polemicist, not a historian. In his review of A Peoples History in The American Scholar, Harvard professor Oscar Handlin denounced the deranged quality of his fairy tale, in which the incimatter how intractable the evidence of American history. Even socialist Georgetown historian Michael Kazin declared A Peoples History is bad history, albeit gilded with virtuous intentions. Zinn reduces the past to a Manichean fable, while maintaining Zinns narrative is grounded in a premise better suited to a conspiracymongers website than to a work of scholarship. Zinn, in his own words, stated, I got into history because I was already an activist at the age of 18 So when I began to study history and began to think about being a teacher and writing history, I already understood that I was not going to be a neutral teacher. I was not going to simply be a scholar I wanted my writing of history and my teaching of history to be a part of social struggle Answering accusations of intellectual dishonesty, Zinn declared, Objectivity is impossible and it is also undesirable. While Im not surprised at this mans popularity in certain quarters, I take issue with the great man being called a historian. Call him what he really was: an activist, dissident and liar. Apparently, teaching ideology over facts, lying to millions and using patent falsehoods to indoctrinate hatred of ones own country can net you fortune, fame and a huge celebrity cult following while also providing ample ammo for angry, pony-tailed Alligator letters. Well, how do you like those apples? Joshua Fonzi is a microbiology and cell science and entomology and nematology senior at UF. His column appears on Thursdays. Joshua Fonziopinions@alligator.org

Javier Landrua, who was working as a deliveryman in Tallahassee, jumped at the opportunity. I was waiting for him to come up with something great for us to do, Javier Landrua said. Jose Landrua got in contact with a local farmer who was planning on leaving his farm near Alachua in the next few months.

KATHRYN VARNAvenue WriterIn 2011 a group of Gainesville residents came together with a common goal: support the local food economy. The Citizens Co-op was born, and ing a farmers market Sundays from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. behind the store. Our intent from the start has been to offer as much local food as possible, Kathy Whipple, 46, one of the managers of the co-op, said. There were vendors who were selling their food inside the co-op, Whipple said, but when the agriculture inspector came through, a lot of the vendors didnt have permits to sell food there. So in order to offer them an outlet, we decided to hold the farmers market once a week in the backyard, Whipple said. The farmers market has a variety of vendors and musicians who per form throughout the afternoon. Kitty Moss, 34, from Cloudwalker Farms in Lake City, had a stand made with duck eggs. Duck eggs make everything Those who are allergic to chicken eggs can eat duck eggs. The duck eggs are easier to digest than chicken eggs and nutritious for chemotherapy patients, Moss said. Moss, who is working on her Associate of Arts in agriculture at Santa Fe College, wants to start breeding certain types of livestock that are on the verge of becoming extinct, called heritage animals. She also wants to expand to growing produce using heirloom seeds, which are the plant equivalent of heritage animals, Moss said. Next to Moss is the Hoggtowne Lemonade Co., operated by Adam Streifel, 27, and Rachel Valencia, 27. The stand has gourmet lemonlavender to strawberry chocolate mint to classic lemonade. The company began with Streifel concocting lemonades with nutritious ingredients to help Valencia eat healthier with her busy schedule. We wanted an alternative to soda and sweet tea, Valencia said. The pair brought their lemonade to the Citizens Co-ops market dur ing the Hogtown HomeGrown 2012 Eat Local Challenge in May. Farmers markets are bringing back the whole community feel to people, Streifel said. Oak Hollow Cottage is beside the lemonade stand, with husband and wife Mike McCarthy, 48, and Pat McCarthy, 54, of Hawthorne.

Her stand offers Greek food, including eggplant with feta cheese, baklava and grape leaves. Past Dionisi is the Citizens Coop store, where Whipple works to achieve the farmers markets goal. It helps us because it attracts people, Whipple said, and it helps the vendors have a low-cost place to sell their goods. It costs $5 to have a stand in the farmers market, and vendors can apply on the website. It has turned out to be something of an incubator, Whipple said. Its one of the ways that we are building the local food economy.

Last weekend, the now 37-yearold closed her sewing studio, Sew Make Do and began preparing garments for a child of her own. About 10 times a month, UF students and Gainesville residents tar sewing studio. At the six sewing stations inside, they learned to sew, knit and quilt. Its nice to have a place where [people] feel like they can get together, she said. Kruse, a UF employee, opened Sew Make Do in October 2011. For the three years prior to Sew Make Do opening she taught classes through the Alachua County Library District and UF Leisure Course program. Kruse was tired of transport ing heavy sewing equipment to the classes she taught. She used to have to teach in whichever room in the Reitz Union was unoccupied, including the basement. I wanted to create a welcoming space for people who are in creative classes to come and learn, she said. Kruse plans to continue teaching at Chickadee Shops, a fabric store in the Oaks Mall Plaza. She will keep a list of her classes on www.SewMakeDo.com, scheduling them around her pregnancy. Its something I chose to do because I only have so much time I can dedicate to the things that are important in my life, she said. I think that most people would agree family is pretty important.Sewing studio closes after eight months David Carr / Alligator StaffFor the Love of the MusicMusic lovers pack the Mushroom Stage at Wannee Festival in April. Wannee is held at the The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Fla. During the summer months, music festivals pop up all over the country.

Knotted in a 1-1 tie against Georgia Tech, Zunino got a fastball at belt level to lead off the top of the fourth. Zunino hit the top of the ball and was able to backspin it out for a go-ahead home The junior catchers long ball spurred 20 UF runs in the next 15 innings. It was a big emotional lift for us when youre in the middle of the order like that, coach Kevin OSullivan said. Mikes home run was a big emotional lift for our team. As the nations home-run leader with 71 this season, Florida boasts one of the nations most productive lineups. While NC State ranks second in the Atlantic Coast Conference with just 22 homers surrendered this season, the Wolfpack believes their bats will help them keep up with the Gators. I know that theyre the No. 1 team, I know everything about them, N.C. State coach Elliott Avent said. Were as good offensively as weve been all year. Florida did plenty to maintain its power-hitting reputation dur ing the NCAA Gainesville Regional. Zunino hit two home runs during the weekend, including his team-leading 18th Sunday. The No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft lined bleachers to give the Gators a 7-0 lead against the Yellow Jackets in the bottom of the second Sunday. I was looking for a good pitch to hit and tried to put a good swing on it, Zunino said. It was one of the better, well-hit ones this year. Preston Tucker added a home run in the top of the ninth last Saturday. With Nolan Fontana of the season crossed Stadium Road in the air and landed at Keys Residential Complex on the UF campus. Casey Turgeon even took a turn as the slugger last weekend. Named the NCAA Gainesville Regionals Most Outstanding Player, Turgeons fourth home run of the season was a three-run shot to put Florida ahead 4-0 Friday. For anybody on their team to impressive, Bethune-Cookman coach Jason Beverlin said Friday. For [Turgeon] to do it, its very impressive. It really is. Thats as good as hes going to hit a ball. Theres no doubt. While the Gators strength comes from their power bats, they showed they could manufacture runs without hitting baseballs over the fence last weekend. Florida scored 16 of its 25 runs on non-homers. However, the Gators most encouraging offensive development last weekend was clutch hitting. Florida registered 16 two-out RBI during the weekend, including 11 Sunday. With two outs, with this kind of lineup we have, you know anything can happen, Tucker said. Just try to get somebody on. See what happens.

Of those nior Tony McQuay and senior Genevieve LaCaze. McQuay had a strong start for Florida. He opened up in the 400 meters with a new outdoors personal record, beating his previous time of 44.68, which was set at the USA Championships. Tony was phenomenal tonight, coach  Mike Holloway  said. Hes been training well and for him to come out and run the fastest time in the NCAA this year and the second-fastest in the U.S., I think it really gave us great momentum to start NCAAs. He works really hard and puts in the effort and today was proof of that. As the day went on, the performances began to fall short of expectations. sprinter Lanie Whittaker placed 10th over nals.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESSJACKSONVILLE Sitting between his coach and general manager, Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Justin Blackmon stared at the ground for much of the 18-minute news conference Wednesday. He looked every bit like a kid in trouble. Blackmon apologized for his poor judgment, vowed to learn and grow from his latest alcoholrelated arrest and insisted he doesnt have a drinking problem. Nonetheless, he swore off alcohol for now. People are going to think what they are going to think, Blackmon said. Words are words. Its my actions that are going to have to show. Stillwater, Okla., early Sunday after a breath test allegedly showed his blood alcohol content to be three times the legal limit. He appeared in an Oklahoma courtroom Monday and pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor count of driving under the remain free on $1,000 bond. His next court date is July 24, three days before training camp. In the meantime, he has plenty of work to do to restore his image. I just want to apologize and let people know that its not who I am, thats not who Im going to be, he said. It was Blackmons second alcohol-related incident in less than two years. He was arrested on a misdemeanor DUI charge in Texas in 2010 on a suburban Dallas highway. The charge was later reduced to an underage alcohol possession charge. He might not be so lucky this time around. Although jail time is unlikely, Blackmon could end up on probation. He also could be suspended by the NFL, and Jaguars general manager Gene Smith said the arrest could affect contract negotiations. Jacksonville traded up to select the former Oklahoma State star with At the time that we made the selection, we felt very good about the selection, Smith said. And I still do because I feel like Ive got to take a man for his word. We have a chance to get him right. Hes a young player and hes got to do his part. Blackmon declined to answer several questions about that night, citing the pending legal process. But he made it clear he doesnt feel like he has a drinking problem. I do not, he said. I just think I made a poor choice. I put myself in a bad situation. Its completely my fault. Ive just got to make better judgment on that. He said he would do whatever the league and the Jaguars ask of him. But he added that hes up for the challenge of getting on the right path and staying there. I know they put a lot of pressure on me, but I put more pressure on myself to make this right and Im going to put more pressure on myself, continue to do that, get out of this situation and to make it right, he said. Its all about growing from your mistakes, learning from them and maturing and trying not to make the same ones over again. His big bombshell was that he has given up alcohol, at least for now. Im done, he said. Right now, Im done with all that. ... I cant promise you 10 years down the road that Im going to be done. I just know that as of right now and what I can speak of. Im looking forward to getting ready to play football and putting this in the past. THURSDAY, JUNE 7, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 19 NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUEJaguars receiver Blackmon giving up alcohol after DUI arrest FINAL GAME AS A CAVALIER WAS A GAME 6 PLAYOFF LOSS TO CELTICS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MIAMI LeBron James appreciates the irony. Matching up against the Boston Celtics, on the road, with the season on the line. He faced it in 2008 and lost. He faced it in 2010 and lost, removing his Cleveland Cavaliers jersey for And now in a championship-or-bust season for the Miami Heat, James heads back to Boston for another win-or-else game. The Celtics lead the Heat 3-2 in the Eastern If they succeed in Game 6 or Game 7, if it comes to that all three of those most recent Boston trips to the title round would come at James expense. three wins. His 19 games there since have also resulted in three wins. No team, maybe no other building, has befuddled James as much as the Celtics and the arena they call home. Hes had a 45-point effort there in a loss, a 42-point effort there in a loss, a 27-point, 19-rebound, 10-assist effort there in a loss. Another loss on Thursday, and his ninth season will end as the previous eight did without a championship. I know how much pain this team has given me over the years, James said. So I guess its only right that we would be going up there in an elimination game. In order for us to keep our season going, weve got to win in their building. So thats what its about. Its no secret that the expectation both internally and externally for the Heat is to win championships. Thats what James famously vowed to get when he came to Miami in July 2010, and after losing in last seasons Heat in what the team has steadfastly referred to as a no-excuse season. James won his third MVP award this season. Hes averaging 29.9 points in the playoffs, six points better than his pace from a year ago and one-tenth of a point away from Kobe Bryant for the leagues postseason lead in that department. And if Miami loses on Thursday night, the Heat season and James will go down in most circles as a failure. We have to do this together, Heat forward Chris Bosh said. Hes going to do what hes supposed to do, and were going to do what were supposed to do. Were going to do it together. We live and die together. You cant just single him out. People have to stop doing that. Its a team sport. If he per forms, hes going to perform, and hes going to do his job. Even with the Heat down in the series after a 94-90 home loss the previous night, Wednesdays practice in Miami did not have a funereal mood. James was chatting and laughing as he shot free throws with some teammates toward the end of the workout, not far from where Heat President Pat Riley sat at his customary table to watch the proceedings. Mike Miller and Udonis Haslem teased each other about how much the other read, or didnt read, while enrolled at Florida. Mario Chalmers and assistant coach David Fizdale were talking about nuances of Boston guard Ray Allens game. I think were all disciplined enough to compartmentalize and focus on the challenge that we have ahead of us, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. It never is easy on your journey to try to be an NBA champion. Youll always have these tough moments where you have to come together and go through that moment together. You cant skip it. There isnt an easy way.Elimination game in Boston brings familiarity for Miamis JamesJames AP PhotoJaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon (center) speaks at a press conference Wednesday addressing his recent DUI arrest.
