SHELBY WEBBAlligator WriterThe alligator only had three legs and one eye, but it was still powerful enough to put a Gainesville man in the hospital. A 9-foot gator attacked James Albert Wimmer on Monday in a small creek inside the Sweetwater Branch section of Southeast 16th Avenue, also known as Tent City. Wimmer was taken to Shands at UF to be treated for extensive injuries to his left arm, shoulder and shoulder blade. He was hurt bad, said J.C. Goodwin, a friend who jumped in to save Wimmer. Goodwin and his neighbor were washing down the hot day with a cold beer when Wimmer walked up to say hello. Goodwin said Wimmer sat and talked, then said he was going to the creek to cool off. Hes done it 100 times before, Goodwin said. The section of the creek next to Goodwins tent is about 5 feet deep and 5 feet across. The alligator, known as Three Legs, lived about 50 feet down the creek from Goodwins camp. Those who visited the camp knew about the alligator and look edbefore they jumped in, Goodwin said. But this time it was different. The alligator was submerged under a raised stone ledge where people usually jump off, which He essentially jumped right on top of [the alligator], Goodwin said. He heard Wimmers splash, but Goodwin said the second noise he heard sent chills up his spine. You can tell when someones in distress, Goodwin said. He let out a scream you couldnt believe. Goodwin ran down his makeshift stairs that led to the creek and saw the alligator latched onto Wimmer around the upper part of his left arm toward his shoulder blade.

SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterThe Student Senate passed two amended budgets, which included giving about $250,000 extra to Student Government Productions. The original Activity and Service Fee budget, which was $17,588,432, was passed in 2011. Since then, fee predictions changed and money could be reallocated. The administrative fee that SG pays to UF was less than expected, Student Body Treasurer Juan Rodriguez said. The budget also proposed to reduce funding for SG staff salaries and special events and to add to SGP and computer network support. Budget and Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Christina Bonarrigo said the committee reareas needed more money. She said SGP requested more funding because artist fees and venue prices increased. Sen. Matt Pesek opposed the additional $253,522 given to SGP, responsible in the past. Sen. Morgan Vollrath echoed his sentiments. I have not been given any speto, he said. I cant sign off on it. However, Sen. Lauren Verno said giving money to SGP is giving money to the students because all the events held by SGP are for the students. Sen. Daniel Landesberg commended the bills authors for cutting waste in some areas of the budget. He said he found it necessary to give SGP more funding. Talent is very expensive these days, he said. The revised budget also allocated $100,000 from SG to help keep Library West open 24 hours during weekdays in the Fall and Spring semesters. The senators unanimously passed an amended SG-funded academics budget, which lowered the Fine Arts College Council budget by $3,522. Six performance groups that used to be funded by the college council are now funded by the School of Music, said Rodriguez. We were actually able to save money this year, Bonarrigo said.

Student Senate amends budgets for entertainment, library MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator Contributing WriterA new online program designed to quickly register students to vote saw a successful unveiling at the Bob Graham Center for Public Service at UF. The program, TurboVote, also alerts students by sending email and text reminders about election deadlines. Students can then request absentee ballots from their local election authorities. Some of them have already started. More than 300 individuals have already accessed the system, said Shelby Taylor, digital commu nications director for the center. Students will be mailed their voter registration or absentee ballot form. TurboVote completes the form and mails it with a postagepaid, pre-addressed envelope. The creator of the program, Harvards Kennedy School of Government alumnus Seth Flaxman, UF will be the fourth university in Florida to host TurboVote, following Florida International University, Miami-Dade College and University of Miami. The Graham Center gathered enough donations to cover all costs of the program, Taylor said. There isnt a cost for students, she said. [The department has] already taken care of that for them. Students can sign up for the ser Taylor said TurboVote hopes to create a 10 percent increase in the number of ballots cast by voters in the age bracket of 18 to 29 this year. According to a 2009 Project Vote report on voter participation in the 2008 elections, fewer than half of 18-year-old citizens were registered to vote. Alex Kerrigan, a 19-year-old fallen into that statistic. He said he was still waiting to register to vote. I dont care about it until its the presidential election, he said. But Kerrigan said receiving email and text alerts about election dates would encourage him to par ticipate in more elections. If I knew about it every time I got a text, I would vote in the election, he said.New voting program allows UF students to register online MICHAEL ANDERSONAlligator Contributing WriterA program that aims to make life easier for underrepresented students will be adding peer mentors in the fall. The University Minority Mentor Program is a transition program within Multicultural Diversity graduate students in navigating the academic and social aspects of the university. Jarrod Cruz, director of multicultural and diversity affairs at UF, said after entering the program the students are separated into groups called knowledge communities, which includes only students with the same or similar majors. The program seeks out mentors from UFs faculty and staff from every college, Cruz said. Each mentor is assigned to a knowledge community that all have majors within that mentors college. In previous years, the program only searched for mentors among UFs faculty and staff. Having incoming students work with faculty and staff mentors may be helpful for the students academically, but it doesnt help them with the social aspects of campus. UF upperclassmen applied to be peer mentors on a volunteer basis during the spring. Twentyseven of them were chosen to mentor the incoming Burr, program coordinator. Peer mentors can assist the students with their personal and social transition into the university. Burr said this program is meant to increase access and retention among students who are traditionally underrepresented in higher education. This program goes beyond just looking at just feeds the mentee information, Burr said. We try to make sure that both the mentor and mentee are engaged with each other. University Minority Mentor Program adds peer mentors to ease transition SHE WAS HIT BY A CAR THAT WAS SPEEDING. BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator Staff WriterA car accident early Wednesday morning left a woman trapped in her car for 10 minutes. At about 5 a.m. Gainesville Fire Rescue responded to a two-car accident at 1600 13th Street. Rescue No. 11, an Alachua County ambulance, was on its way back to its station from a hospital when a car narrowly missed it at a high speed, according to an email from Jeff Lane, a GFR district chief. The car, which might have been street racing, swerved to miss the ambulance and hit another car almost head-on. The speeding car may have ran a red light. The ambulance driver and attendant saw the accident, began to treat the victims and called for assistance, according to Lane. The injured driver was trapped in her vehicle for about 10 minutes. jaws and cutter tools to free her. The on-scene video recorded the driver-side door off of her car.

uninjured arm, tried to drag himself away from the gator by grabbing onto some roots in the river. The gator swam, mouth open, toward Wimmer again, Goodwin said. Goodwin grabbed a cinderblock he used to prop up his stairs to the creek. I busted the block on his head, Goodwin said. The gator went back under, did a full circle and swam away. Once the gator was back in his lair, Goodwin jumped in and dragged Wimmer away from the reptile while a neighbor called 911. Gainesville Fire Rescue, Gainesville Police Department and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission responded. within just 10 yards of the alligator, GFR District Chief James Lovvorn said. He was then taken to Shands at UF. Lovvorn didnt know Wimmers condition when he composed a press release. Commission shot and killed Three Legs, Goodwin said.

Contact Shelby Webb at swebb@alligator.org HE IS CHARGED WITH THREE COUNTS OF MURDER. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSMONTGOMERY, Ala. A man accused of killing three people at a party near Auburn University turned himself in Tuesday after a three-day manhunt that included a tense but fruitless search of a Montgomery home by police tactical units. A Montgomery defense attorney said she arranged for Desmonte Leonard to surrender after getting word that his family wanted her help. Auburn Police Chief Tommy Dawson said the suspect was taken into custody at 7:57 p.m. by a U.S. Marshal at the federal courthouse in Montgomery. His surrender was a low-key ending to a search that included the inch-by-inch scouring of the house by police armed with tear gas and spy gear. Hours after police conceded Leonard had evaded them at the house, Dawson said the suspect walked up the courthouse steps and surrendered peacefully to the marshal waiting just inside. Its been a trying case for all law enforcement involved, Dawson said at a news conference. Leonard, 22, is charged with three counts of capiover a woman. He is accused of wounding three others. The dead included two former Auburn football players, and a current player was among the injured. Dawson said that Leonard was being booked into a jail in Montgomery and will be moved to Opelika, on Wednesday or Thursday.

Bitter resentment and contempt for those of opposing views is commonplace. It often seems that the stronger the convictions or the more awareness one has of political issues, the more fervently one tends to see others as opponents. One of the more polarizing issues seems to be the issue of same-sex marriage. People from both sides are sharply opinionated on the matter, and it seems that a mutually favorable solution is unlikely to present itself anytime soon. But what if a mere change in tactics by one political persuasion could bring about a reversal of this situation where both sides could achieve their stated goals? I would suggest that there is, indeed, a solution and that it deserves consideration. If right-leaning types oppose same-sex marriage on the grounds that it infringes upon their ability to religiously ment, and left-leaning types tend to view the ability of samesex couples to marry as a human-rights or personal liberty issue, which side is ultimately correct? Unequivocally, I say both. So how do we break the impasse? I would suggest that it could be achieved by merely applying the following formula to the issue, Is there any way to address this problem with more freedom, not less? As columnist and talk-show host Dennis Prager is fond of saying, The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen. If you can agree with this statement, then you can certainly see that there is a larger problem at the core of this issue. At my own wedding nearly eight years ago, an aging Elvis impersonator sang my bride and I the benediction, By the power vested in me by the great state of Nevada and on behalf of the City of Las Vegas, I now pronounce you husband and wife. It wasnt a particularly religious ceremony, but it still required sanctioning by the state. In order for my wife and I to get married, we needed permission, sanction and license from a state agency in line and paid a fee. Since the mid-1800s, Americans have tolerated their government taxing and regulating their own most precious sacraments without giving it a thought. These have in fact caused division and strife on multiple occasions, as in the case of miscegenation laws that prohibited interand a perfect example of government overreach. If proponents of same-sex marriage were to shift tactics from demanding state recognition to the repeal of all state interference in intimate personal relationships, the matter would become merely one of contract law between private individuals. Conservatives would remain free to exercise their consciences within their homes and churches, and same-sex couples would be free to marry whomever they chose with nally be denied another venue to extort funds from a divided citizenry. In my mind, such a liberty movement is long overdue. Everyone deserves compassion and consideration of their own humanity, whether or not we always agree on lifestyle choices. tive and others like me would be proud to stand shoulder to shoulder under it with you.

THURSDAY, JUNE 14, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 When Facebook went public, its initial public offering gave investors the chance to own a piece of the massive social network via stocks. But with the development, the company is bound to change, and this time its not going to be just a revamped homepage. Facebook users have always enjoyed a nearly ad-free homepage, with only a few easy-to-ignore ads popping up. each user, investors and advertisers are going to be trying Making Facebook a public entity could be seen as giving the users control, but how many average Facebook users are going to shell out about $40 for a single share of the stock? ny, what are they willing to do to raise the price tag of their stock? Rumored changes to the website include paying for priority status updates so more people will see them. While this might be good for businesses trying to reach more customers, it could clog up news feeds with posts reminiscent of spam. I think people who didnt expect Facebook to try to nickel and dime its consumers were unaware of the actual status of Facebook a company. While Facebooks humble beginnings and explosion of popularity were impressive, and its motives appeared altruCompanies are in business to make money and Mark Zuckerberg has more than he knows what to do with not to simply give away their products because they feel like being nice. It all comes down to the money. How can Facebook make money on the users? By giving them the option to spend Maybe by giving them the option to pay for a priority status update that everyone and their mothers will see (and whose mother isnt on Facebook these days?). There is a possibility that the future of Facebook might include paying for features we take for granted. How much would you pay to like your friends photo of her adorable new puppy? Im willing to bet a priority status update that Facebook will test the limits of its users wallets on each feature. more money surrounding its existence. But this might not be for the better. According to Facebooks data, the website has more than 900 million active users as of this month. Ill be pany starts asking for chump change to access previously free features. Andi Hendrickson is a columnist for The Lantern at Ohio State University.Facebook is in the business to make money, not to be niceUWireAndi HendricksonUWire Its pretty evident that the GOP agenda is focused on rolling back the clock on women, said Washington Sen. Patty Murray, chairwoman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, after the Senate vote on the Paycheck Fairness Act, which lacked a single Republican vote and failed to advance. Was she serious? vote on this bill the substance of it and ter and are the reasons that this bill did not make it. The bill would have been an expansion on anti-pay discrimination laws already in place, including measures such as salary negotiation training for women and girls, Opportunity Commission to regulate busisuits against employers they feel have discriminated against them. Passing this law would have added up to larger burdens for businesses, including increased costs and time spent on paperwork, more government regulation and control of the employer-employee relationship, a slew of frivolous lawsuits and an early Christmas for trial lawyers. After the defeat, Democrats repeatedly mentioned the high unemployment rate as a reason to pass this bill, stating that it would bring much-needed security to households if not all, of the familys income. However, the bill is just more hoops and red tape for businesses to deal with. Time and money that could be spent working and growing a business would instead be spent battling lawsuits and attempting to comply with new demands from the commission. Businesses could become more reluctant to hire women for fear of one of these lawsuits, which they would be likely to lose. According to The Washington Post, the pay discrepancy between men and women has declined over the years. Today, there is no need for another law to deter businesses from discriminating against women. Market laws work better for that anyway. In a free market, employers choose to pay competitive rates in order to draw the best employees to their company. Decades ago, the argument for legislation supporting means for women to seek reparations when discrimination does occur. Despite what the far left loves to portray, a statistical difference between two groups does not automatically add up to malevolent discrimination. While it may be factually correct to say that on average, women make 77 cents on every dollar a man makes for the same position, upon further consideration of the factors that lead to the statistic, one can conclude that it is not discrimination so much as cultural and lifestyle differences between men and women that lead to this gap. On average, women spend more time on maternity leave and at home with their children than men do and therefore have large gaps in their employment. According to a study commissioned by the U.S. Labor Department in 2009, The gender gap shrinks to between 8 percent and 0 percent when the study incorporates such measures as work experience, career breaks and part-time work. Since women do not, on average, log as many hours as men do, their average salary is less. Ultimately, no need for this legislation exists, and its passage wouldnt have resulted in its intended outcome anyway. These additional regulations would have worked more against women than for them, and it is things like this bill that really roll back the clock on women.

JOSHUA MINCHINAlligator Contributing WriterKristopher Willis signed up for a forensics class in high school thinking he was going to learn how to analyze crime scenes like they did on TV. He was dead wrong. Willis quickly realized he was in a speech and debate class, and the word forensics had more than one meaning. Although his passion for forensics was with forensics has stuck with him ever since. Twenty years later, Willis is now a lecturer and director of the policy debate team at UF. as the UF policy debate director, his squad jumped an unprecedented 62 places in the Cross Examination Debate Association national ranking. The team entered the season ranked No. 68 out of 117 teams and ended the season ranked No. 6. ever, Kellie Roberts, director of UF forensics, said. Willis came in last year and has been an integral part of the success, Roberts said. [I] walked in with goals, direction and a plan, Willis said. but he worked with his squad to complete them.

Now that the UF policy team is considered one of the best debate teams in the nation, it has a target on its back. Although personal success is important to Prescott, seeing his teammates succeed is the most rewarding part of being the team captain. The squads philosophy is, To the last man.

Your stomach turns, your spiration builds on your forehead. You want to make a lasting impression, but you worry your nerves will ruin it. A Gainesville businessman thinks he has the answer to this problem. Stephen Wycoff, the business development manager for Remresumes offer students and recent graduates an alternative way to promote and highlight themselves to prospective employers. Its something out of the box but very professional, Wycoff said. You will remember him or resumes you look through. Through the video resume ser vice, which Wycoff added to the company last year, job seekers can record up to three 60-second segments to answer interview questions and can re-record responses until theyre happy with their answers. through social media websiites or other programs like TalentRooster, a vendor that works with recruiters and supports the video resume platform.

It also allows those employers to get an idea about who the person they could potentially hire really is. Wycoff said once a person is hired, he or she pays a percentage of his or her salary to Remedy Intelon the position and salary taken. Mary Medina, assistant director for employer development at the UF Career Resource Center, said the center hasnt seen many requests from employers but would consider using video resumes if more students wanted to use them. Bethany Kiewel, 29, who was hired after using the video resume, said she chose it because it gives companies a more visual aspect of the candidate. Kiewel said she was nervous was helpful to have a professional opinion to let her know if her answers were satisfactory. Who you are is hard to portray on paper, she said.

theA v enue THURSDAY JUNE 14, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/THE_AVENUE Quotable: Like the somehow-overlooked hot girl with glasses and awkward bangs from that moment, three measly slices of watermelon. Benjamin Brasch, Alligator Staff album reviews by tweet this semester. Follow @ AlligatorAvenue for more details. MICHELLE KLUGAvenue WriterFor twins Stephanie and Claire Browning, life is all cupcakes and pretty dresses literally. Managing their newly opened retro clothing and beauty store, Ingenue Avenue, and their twoyear-old cupcake bakery, Sarkara Sweets Cafe, takes up so much of their time they have little room for much else on their schedules. The identical duo opened Ingenue Avenue next to their cupcake shop at 201 SE Second Ave. town clothing void. The store specializes in boutique bath and beauty products and new and used retro clothing Decorated with vintage Vogue ers and miniature sprinkle cupcakes, the shop is sure to appeal to your inner Grace Kelly. We have always admired the visual styles of past time periods, Claire Browning said. formal dresses from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, as well as vintage-inspired items that average $40. We have found that a lot of women are interested in more covering up, Claire Browning said. While the shop does have short dresses, it also carries hardwear suited for the workplace. The twins said they named the shop after the French adjective ingnu, which means young innocence. Dont be deceived by the twins gentle demeanor, soft brown curls, freckles and sky-blue eyes. These ladies have been developing a plan for Ingenue Avenue for years and have just been waiting for an opportunity. our computer we had a logo designed, the name and everything, Stephanie Browning said. The opportunity came about when the clothing store next to Sarkara Sweets closed and they were able to rent the space and expand their business. The two said it is always exciting and nerve-racking when they open a new shipment since they do not see the clothing before. They order from a wholesale vintage dealer in California. Holding up a brown and white dress they call the pilgrim dress, they joke that they have received some off-the-wall items. You take a gamble when dealing with retro, Stephanie Browning said. Their interest in retro design and clothing styles is not only apparent in the products they carry, but also in the hand-picked design they incorporate in the clothing and cupcake shops. Ingenue Avenue is a business venture as well as a labor of love for the sisters. When we were younger, Steph wanted to go into fashion design, Claire Browning added. Stephanie gave up that dream so her sister could pursue archeology at UF. Now, the Browning sisters have opened their books to fashion again and plan to use the same customized touch that they use in Sarkara Sweets. In a month or so, we will be offering beauty products madeto-order, just like the cupcake shop, Stephanie Browning said. Just as in Sarkara Sweets, where you can pick your cake Ingenue Avenue will offer that ucts, where the customer can pick ingredients and scents. Weve seen a really widespread customer base, Stephanie Browning said. The sisters were surprised that clothing store was to a man. He bought a bath bomb for his girlfriend, Stephanie Browning said. Its suited for young women, Claire Browning added. Weve made most of our sales to women 25 to 40. Despite the summer months being generally slower for businesses, the Brownings have planned in advance and set aside money to accommodate. Summer everywhere is a little slower, Claire Browning said. But we enjoy the chance to interact with the customers. Summer in the cupcake shop usual, according to the sisters. People have time to celebrate events I guess, Claire Browning said. Weve done weddings, special events, galas, bar and bat mitzvahs and baby showers. The shops are open Wednesday to Sunday, but thesisters work every day They look forward to training a manager and having more time for hobbies cooking and gardening for Claire and sketching, fashion design and music for Stephanie.Michelle Klug / Alligator StaffIngenue Avenue opened last Thursday and specializes in new and use clothing from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, as well as customizable bath and beauty products. Michelle Klug / Alligator Staff Twins Stephanie and Claire Browning are co-owners of both Sakara Sweets Cafe and the newly opened Ingenue Avenue, a retro clothing and beauty store. Sisters cook up plan for retro clothing and beauty storeUF graduate, John Pinckard, recently took home a Tony Award.

KATHRYN VARNAvenue WriterTed Kubisek stood in front of the fan to combat the heat during the shops last week of being open for business. He spoke to customers and employees in a way that shows hes known them for years. After 21 years owning and operating Spin Cycle, it was time for a change. By June 19, the warehouse, home to a bike shop, screen printing business and music venue, is set to clear out of the building it has been in for more than a decade. Ive done it for so long that I dont want to do it for ever, said Kubisek, 39. Monster Press Printing, the screen printing business, will continue after the bike store closes. The shop is closing because Santa Fe College is expanding its downtown campus into Spin Cycles building on University Avenue. That has given us, myself, my family a chance, a breaking point that after 21 years seems to make sense, Kubisek said. Kubisek, a Gainesville native, originally opened the shop on Northwest 13th Street in 1991. He graduated from high school at a time when mountain biking was an emerging sport. I was already working in a shop since I was 12, Kubisek said, so by the time I graduated high school, I was well-trained and experienced. From there, Kubisek started running someone elses store, where he sold a lot of high-end and emerging mountain bike equipment. He and some friends decided to open Spin Cycle shortly after. It was very successful right away, Kubisek said. People would travel from other towns to come to our store. We had a lot of organized rides and a lot of community participation. The venue Spin Cycle on Tap was added two years ago. It participated in Gator Stompin and has hosted bands and variety shows. The timing of Spin Cycles opening prevented Kubisek earned a degree. I regret that decision, Kubisek said. He wants to work toward a degree, among other things, after the store closes. I certainly look forward to what it is that my family and friends are going to be doing, he said, but whatever it is will be free from having to do this. Along with continuing Monster Press Printing, he and his wife, Jill Kubisek, 33, plan to travel to Washington, D.C. with their two children, Vander, 2, and Cadence, 10 months, to campaign for President Barack Obama. Thats a plan, thats a dream, Ted Kubisek said. Id like to witness a presidential inauguration once in my lifetime. Despite all of the excitement in new beginnings, Kubisek will miss seeing his children grow up in the bike shop. Thats one of the saddest parts that I dont get to raise my children here, he said. 10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY JUNE 14, 2012Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffSpin Cycle has been selling their inventory since Sunday. The bike frames, tires, wheels and other parts will be do nated to organizations around the community. One in particular is Bikes for Veterans.

THURSDAY JUNE 14, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 11 BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAvenue WriterWaiters who carry trays of steamy omelettes and grits flutter in and out of a door with hundreds of half-smudged fingerprints. Fathers dole out dated relationship advice to daughters over glasses of orange juice and bottles of Crystal Hot Sauce. As an old man finally mounts his high chair and rests his elbows on the sticky bar, a waitress brings him his standard dark black coffee with a warm smile and a Hey, Charles. Iveys Grill offers a continental-style brunch menu with locavore flair. The experience begins with what seems like an orchestra of greetings from the staff in the dining room, which is adorned with paper mache animals, paintings of Muhammad Ali and plants hung at random. After you take your seat and have your drink order in place, you can settle in to listen to the room. The music, which moves from John Williams orchestral music to West Coast jazz guitar to a patriotic lone French horn, is accompanied by a conversation some intellectuals are having about Leonard Bernstein. All of the unlikely parts mix well together, much like the food. The Smoked Salmon Benedict is an amalgam of tart hollandaise sauce, hickory-smoked salmon and perfectly poached eggs all perched on top of a crisp split English muffin. Iveys Grill smokes its salmon with brown sugar and hickory chips in the morning, only hours before it is served. The sweet smoke of the salmon compliments the two perfectly poached eggs. Hollandaise sauce, which is the emulsification of butter, egg yolk and lemon, used its lemon to cut the fattiness of the fish and add another creamy texture to the eggs, bringing the whole dish into harmony. The potatoes were pan-fried chunks seasoned with rosemary, oregano and lots of pepper. Although the pepper from the potatoes gave a good spice, the potatoes themselves were cold. Where the potatoes lacked in warmth, the service didnt. Every member of the wait staff made sure drinks were full, people had their hot sauce and that you were going to get the pancakes when you come back. It is easy to get a first impression of a staff in one visit, but it takes more than one trip to a restaurant to see what a menu is like, so lunch it was. The crab cake sandwich, Matt & Tomeis Crab Cake Sandwich, proudly displayed sweet chunks of crab from Northwest Seafood, along with capers to add a bit of texture and flavor. To add even more texture and flavor, the cake is topped with lettuce and a dill mayonnaise. Just counterclockwise from the sandwich sat an unlikely soloist, soba noodles. The buckwheat noodles, ubiquitous to almost every Japanese home, took a trip to Thailand as they were tossed with peanut sauce, chopped peanuts, green onions and red cabbage. The green onions helped to cut through the rich grit of the peanuts. What would have truly rounded off the noodles as a Thai dish would have been just a little spice, which would have also worked well with the crab. My mouth, having just been subjected to dill mayonnaise and peanut sauce, looked for something to cut all of the velvety textures. And there it was. Like the somehowoverlooked hot girl with glasses and awkward bangs from your high school art class. I finally realized how beautiful and perfect it was at that moment, three measly slices of watermelon. The cooling organic watermelon, from Bellevue Gardens Organic Farms, mellowed the flavors and cut through the textures of the meal. Throughout the dish, the balance of flavors and textures was never an after thought and it showed. Iveys Grill manages to harmonize different local flavors into cohesive meals for all to enjoy. Check back with The Avenue this summer for more local food reviews.Local eatery Iveys Grill has friendly service and better food The establishment is located on West University Avenue

NATALIE TEERAvenue WriterJohn Pinckard, alumnus of the UF School of Theatre and Dance, helped produce Clybourne Park. The play won a Pulitzer Prize in 2011 for drama and took home Best Play at the Tony Awards Sunday night. Clybourne Park is loosely based on historical events and is inspired by Lorraine Hansberrys A Raisin in the Sun. According to the Los Angeles Times, it is a sharp-toothed satirical drama about the vagaries of race and real estate. Pinckard graduated from UF in 1998 and is now part of JTG Theatricals, a New York production company. The company is made up of three producers. The UF College of Fine Arts and the UF Alumni Association selected Pinckard for the 2009 Outstanding Young Alumni Award. Nick Erkelens, a senior in the acting program of the UF School of Theatre and Dance, got a chance to meet Pinckard during the Spring semester. Pinckard was invited to Gainesville by Florida Players, a student-run theater company that allows students to showcase their work. Florida Players is sponsored by Student Government. Florida Players invited Pinckard down from New York to teach a master class. Master classes provide opportunities for students to meet professionals and have their work critiqued. The guests also give speeches about their experiErkelens said Pinckard was originally in school for lighting design before he switched to production. He was working on Clybourne Park when he came to Gainesville for the class. Erkelens said Pinckard explained that he was willing to support anyone pursuing a craft in theater whether it be set design, production or acting. He was super down to earth, Erkelens said. He gave us his card and said we should contact him if we travel to New York. He was really interested in having a Gator community up there. Pinkard has no plans to slow down after Clyboune Park. He is currently committed to eight seasons as well as two feature Tales of the City, is an autobiographical jukebox musical. Its music is by Scissor Sisters, and the play is about the career of legendary producer/director Hal Prince, directed by Prince himself. He is most notably known for his direction and production of plays such as West Side Story, FIddler on the Roof and The Phantom of the Opera. He is the Steven Spielberg of Broadway, Pinckard said. He took an interest in my producing career and is my mentor. For Pinckard the transition to success wasnt immediate, and he, like others, spent time as a struggling artist in New York. Its kind of like losing weight, you dont notice day by day, you notice incremental changes respectively, he said. Its kind of like that David Bryne song. This is not my beautiful house, this is not my beautiful wife, how did I get here? 12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY JUNE 14, 2012Pinckard David Carr / Alligator StaffWith the edition of all new games, Mars has added a pool table. The games cost anywhere from 25 cents to $1 Mars Pub is located 239 W University Avenue. MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAvenue WriterStudents with a taste for beer, Pac-Man and live mu sic can now enjoy all three without leaving the comfort of their barstools. Mars Pub and Laser Tag transformed its laser tag arena into an arcade. Eight cabinets feature racing simulators, rail shooter and classic arcade games: Frogger, Galaga and Donkey Kong to name a few. Air hockey and billiards tables have been added to the 3,000-square-foot room, too. The games cost anywhere from 25 cents to $1 to play. Were trying to keep the more retro games everyone loves, said Melissa Del Valle, a co-owner of the bar. Skee-Ball has been the No. 1 game people have been asking for. The north side of the room is dedicated to live music performances. Six shows are scheduled for July, she said. The renovations stemmed from a lack of demand for laser tag during summer months, when fewer students attend UF. when you were a kid, Del Valle said. The bar will add a jukebox to the arcade next week, and three more arcade cabinets will be installed in the near future. The bars laser tag equipment will receive maintenance and upgrades during the summer, Del Valle said. She said she wasnt sure if the bars laser tag arena would We always intended for the laser tag to come back in fall, she said, but the arcade is doing really well.Mars Pub and Laser Tag transforms into old-school arcadeUF Alum won Best Play at the Tonys awardsDonkey Kong is a featured game Alligator StaffJune new releases: MusicAmericana Neil Young Thats why God Made radio The Beach Boys Thirty Miles West Alan Jackson BANGA Patti Smith Clockwork Angels Rush Ashes & Roses Mary Chapin Carpenter The Lion The Beast The Beat Grace Potter & the Nocturnals Looking 4 Myself Usher Blow Your Pants Off Jimmy Fallon Theres No Leaving Now The Tallest Man on Earth The Bravest Man In The Universe Bobby Womack In Our Heads Hot Chip Welcome To The Fishbowl-Kenny Chesney The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Chords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do Fiona Apple Oceania Smashing Pumpkins Overexposed Maroon 5 LIVING THINGS Linkin Park Days Go By The Offspring Rooster Rag Little Feet

THURSDAY, JUNE 14, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Born in the U.S.A.The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association named utility player Brian Johnson and catcher Mike Zunino First-Team All-Americans on Wednesday.TweetableI still cant believe Missouri lost to Norfolk State.Patric Young, UF center (@BigPatYoung4) JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer After losing to South Carolina last June, Florida has had the twotime defending national champions number this season. The Gators took two out of three in Columbia in late March, and they eliminated the Gamecocks from the Southeastern Conference Tournament with a 7-2 win May 25. It doesnt mean anything, Greg Larson said of Floridas success against South Carolina during the 2012 season. In Omaha, its just one game, and you just look forward to that one game. I dont think us beating them three out of four means anything to them. However, when the Gators (4718) take on the Gamecocks (45-17) Saturday night at 9, one number will stand in Floridas way: 21. South Carolina has won 21 consecutive postseason games dating back to the 2010 College World Series. A loss to Oklahoma on opening night two years ago marks the last time the Gamecocks have experienced postseason defeat. Streaks or no streaks, were all 0-0 in Omaha right now, Josh Tobias said. Another South Carolina streak matched by Florida this season is consecutive College World Series appearances. The Gators and Gamecocks are each making their third straight trip to Omaha. While Floridas upperclassmen have been a part of all three trips, Saturdays game will mark the ence for several Gators. Its not going to hit me until I get there, Tobias said. Youre playing the best competition every day, and youre going to be on the biggest stage in your life, besides the major leagues. Thats one of the reasons why I chose this school. For Floridas returning players, facing South Carolina at TD Ameritrade Park brings up memories from how the 2011 season ended. However, the Gators say last years loss is a moot point. I dont think theres any bitterness, Larson said. Weve kind of moved on from last year. Were trying to make this year count. Brian Johnson added: Last year doesnt matter. It is what it is last year. Were all grateful to be back with this opportunity and a fresh start, and were ready to go. With nine players likely to leave Florida for professional baseball following the College World Series, a sense of urgency has set in. As the nations top-ranked team, the Gators are favored to win their [to Omaha], my sophomore year, we were kind of happy just to be there, Larson said. Last year motivated. This year is kind of the same attitude. Weve been there, we want to get it done. Tobias added. I expect to win it. We got there last year, and I expect to win the whole thing this year. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org. Florida faces familiar foe in College World Series openerDavid Carr / Alligator Staff Whether the Gators win or lose this years College World Series, Brian Johnson will always be remembered in Omaha. After an apparent Johnson home run was called a ground-rule double in Floridas 8-4 win against Texas last season, instant replay has been implemented for the 2012 College World Series. All that mattered last year is we won the game, Johnson said. I think [the new rule is] pretty cool. The NCAA has wisely limited instant replay to reviews regarding home runs. The three scenarios are: deciding if an apparent home run is fair or foul, deciding whether a batted ball left a ground-rule double and spectatorinterference plays on home runs. Dennis Poppe, the NCAA vice president of football and baseball, discussed the rule change Tuesday. Limited instant replay Joe Morgantwitter: @joe_morgan SEE JOE, PAGE 19TRACK AND FIELD KATIE AGOSTIN Alligator Staff Writer Junior Tony McQuay has had a nice year in 2012. The sprinter started off winning the U.S. Championships in June, then won outdoor title in the 400 meters as well as title. But the year isnt over yet. On Wednesday, McQuay said that this will be his last year running for Florida. From freshman year to now, it has been a long journey, McQuay said. Its been a great experience for me. To go out with a national title, to break school records and go down in history, especially since its my last year here, words cant describe how I feel. Despite turning professional, he intends to still train on Floridas track as degree. However, McQuay hasnt decided who he will be running for yet. Im still not sure who Im going to sign with yet; Im still in the process of deciding where Im going to go, McQuay said. Nike and Adidas are the two of my biggest ones.

Well see how it works, he said. I can tell you every umpire wants to make sure they got the call right. A home run, thats a big play. They want to make sure they get it right. A change in the game of this magnitude has drawn both praise and ire. Although not directly, Florida coach Kevin OSullivan and N.C. State coach Elliott Avent clashed on the issue last weekend. I think its a good thing, OSullivan said Sunday. I think that anything that can help the umpires get the call right I think is a good thing for this sport. Thats not a knock on them not getting the call (on Johnsons home run) right last year. Thats the other thing that makes this sport so good. Theres decisions sometimes in the game that arent right and you got to battle through those decisions. Avent brought up instant replay after the Gators 9-8 victory against the Wolfpack on Sunday. N.C. State shortstop Chris Diaz struck out looking on a controversial called third strike to end the game. A furious Diaz chased after home plate umpire Steve Corvi to argue the call. Any way, its baseball, Avent said. Its what makes it the great, great game. Thats why there should never be replay. I think replay has destroyed football and everything. Like Avent, I consider myself a baseball purist. I like outdoor stadiums, and I believe the designated hitter is an atrocity. Take Me Out to the Ball Game should be the only song played during the seventhinning stretch, and, for the love of God, why the hell is there a pool bar at Marlins Park? However, I support the introduction of limited instant replay. I put emphasis on limited. I support the rules established by the College World Series, and I even think it would be okay to review whether a runner is safe or out. Each team should receive one challenge per game. A successful challenge earns a second. After that, no more, so choose your battles wisely. There will be no counter challenges. No booth-ordered replays. But heres where I draw the line: balls and strikes. Everybody has his or her own strike zone. It varies on the size of the batter and the eye of the beholder. The strike zone should forever remain untouched by instant replay. We dont need the technological equivalent of a fax machine like Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine suggests. Critics complain about instant replay and suggest it will slow down an already untimed game, but if time is a concern, there are plenty of other sports with clocks. Baseball is a human game and, like us, its error-prone. We have used technology to improve our lives. Why not our games? Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator. org.

The junior sprinter won individual national titles in the 4x400 relay and the 400m last weekend. McQuay will compete in 400m at the Olympic trialshelped the men earned all four NCAA titles three indoors and one outdoors. He also won three individual ern Conference titles. Everything just happened so fast for me with my collegiate career, McQuay said. I feel like I just got here. Im not ready to leave, but I have to make the best decision. I wish I could do it all over again. The eight-time All-American holds two school records. He set the outdoor record for the 400 meters at the NCAA Outdoor championships with a time of 44.58. His most impressive record came in his last event as a Gator when he anchored the 4x400-meter team to a world-leading time of 3:00.02 at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. Floridas new record edged out its previous one set in 2010 by less than a half second. When I looked up at that clock I said, Wow, we just did that, he said. It was such an emotional moment for me. With his collegiate career behind him, McQuay will now be focusing on his professional one starting with the Olympic trials on June 22. After setting a new personal record in the 400 meters last week, McQuay feels conhave in Eugene, Ore. Its a big stage, but I raced some of those guys on my way to making the world team. Im not going to go in there scared of them, Im going in there hungry, McQuay said. Whoever wants it more is going to get that spot, but after running a [44.58] I dont think I have too much to worry about. Anything can happen though, but theyre going to have to bring it because Im bringing it. Contact Katie Agostin at kagostin@ alligator.org. TRACK, from page 18THE MCCOLUMN Youve heard of ultimate frisbee you know, that game with the hippies running around barefoot, throwing around a disc and enjoying Janoris Jenkins favorite pastime. Chances are youve come across it at the park or outside your dorm room. You may have even played a time or two. But ultimate has become much more than that friendly game of pick-up.. Just look at the UF mens and womens club teams. During the spring semester, you can see them practicing at Lake Alice Field several times a week. Not to mention the regular conditioning workouts, and the tournaments they compete in throughout the country. Its no surprise both are premier college ultimate teams, ranking in the top 30 nationally the women recently placed 13th at the 2012 D-I College Womens Championships, and the men own national titles in 2006 and 2010. Florida has become a national powerhouse in the ultimate scene, producing some of the top talent in the country each year. Most notable is Brodie Smith, who has gone on to become a YouTube hit, creating ultimate tutorials and even a Frisbee trick-shot series that has gone viral and rivaled the likes of Dude Perfect, the basketball trick-shot artists. Smith now plays professionally in the American Ultimate Disc League, headlining for the Indianapolis Alley Cats. You heard right, its a professional sport now. You can replace those hippies with bona sports like football and basketball and imagine the only thing being passed around now is a disc. The AUDL, currently in its inaugural season, consists of eight teams located in the Northeast and Midwest. Expansion plans have been set to create teams throughout the country by 2014, including Jacksonville and Orlando. It has garnered enough attention to make it into SportsCenters Top 10 plays, and is making the push to become a marketable sport, selling products ranging from player jerseys to autographed discs. The only thing left is for Air Bud: Just Huck It to hit the big screen. This should not come as a surprise. Now played in more than 42 countries worldwide, each year, making it one of the fastest-growing sports in just over 40 years of existence. And despite all of its growth, ultimate has stuck to its roots. At most levels of the game, it revolves around a rule called Spirit of the The best part, heckling is allowed even in the pro league. Hell, its encouraged, as long as it doesnt venture into taunting. So next time you see someone walking around campus with a disc, remember, they might be more than a stoner maybe even a future pro athlete. Just like the football players.

A 9-foot gator attacked James Albert Wimmer on Monday in a small creek inside the Sweetwater Branch section of Southeast 16th Avenue, also known as Tent City. Wimmer was taken to Shands at UF to be treated for extensive injuries to his left arm, shoulder and shoulder blade. He was hurt bad, said J.C. Goodwin, a friend who jumped in to save Wimmer. Goodwin and his neighbor were washing down the hot day with a cold beer when Wimmer walked up to say hello. Goodwin said Wimmer sat and talked, then said he was going to the creek to cool off. Hes done it 100 times before, Goodwin said. The section of the creek next to Goodwins tent is about 5 feet deep and 5 feet across. The alligator, known as Three Legs, lived about 50 feet down the creek from Goodwins camp. Those who visited the camp knew about the alligator and look edbefore they jumped in, Goodwin said. But this time it was different. The alligator was submerged under a raised stone ledge where people usually jump off, which He essentially jumped right on top of [the alligator], Goodwin said.

SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterThe Student Senate passed two amended budgets, which included giving about $250,000 extra to Student Government Productions. The original Activity and Service Fee budget, which was $17,588,432, was passed in 2011. Since then, fee predictions changed and money could be reallocated. The administrative fee that SG pays to UF was less than expected, Student Body Treasurer Juan Rodriguez said. The budget also proposed to reduce funding for SG staff salaries and special events and to add to SGP and computer network support. Budget and Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Christina Bonarrigo said the committee reareas needed more money. She said SGP requested more funding because artist fees and venue prices increased. Sen. Matt Pesek opposed the additional $253,522 given to SGP, responsible in the past. Sen. Morgan Vollrath echoed his sentiments. I have not been given any speto, he said. I cant sign off on it. However, Sen. Lauren Verno said giving money to SGP is giving money to the students because all the events held by SGP are for the students. Sen. Daniel Landesberg commended the bills authors for cutting waste in some areas of the budget. He said he found it necessary to give SGP more funding. Talent is very expensive these days, he said. The revised budget also allocated $100,000 from SG to help keep Library West open 24 hours during weekdays in the Fall and Spring semesters. The senators unanimously passed an amended SG-funded academics budget, which lowered the Fine Arts College Council budget by $3,522. Six performance groups that used to be funded by the college council are now funded by the School of Music, said Rodriguez. We were actually able to save money this year, Bonarrigo said.

Student Senate amends budgets for entertainment, library MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator Contributing WriterA new online program designed to quickly register students to vote saw a successful unveiling at the Bob Graham Center for Public Service at UF. The program, TurboVote, also alerts students by sending email and text reminders about election deadlines. Students can then request absentee ballots from their local election authorities. Some of them have already started. More than 300 individuals have already accessed the system, said Shelby Taylor, digital communications director for the center. Students will be mailed their voter registration or absentee ballot form. TurboVote completes the form and mails it with a postagepaid, pre-addressed envelope. The creator of the program, Harvards Kennedy School of Government alumnus Seth Flaxman, UF will be the fourth university in Florida to host TurboVote, following Florida International University, Miami-Dade College and University of Miami. The Graham Center gathered enough donations to cover all costs of the program, Taylor said. There isnt a cost for students, she said. [The department has] already taken care of that for them. Students can sign up for the serTaylor said TurboVote hopes to create a 10 percent increase in the number of ballots cast by voters in the age bracket of 18 to 29 this year. According to a 2009 Project Vote report on voter participation in the 2008 elections, fewer than half of 18-year-old citizens were registered to vote. Alex Kerrigan, a 19-year-old fallen into that statistic. He said he was still waiting to register to vote. I dont care about it until its the presidential election, he said. But Kerrigan said receiving email and text alerts about election dates would encourage him to participate in more elections. If I knew about it every time I got a text, I would vote in the election, he said.New voting program allows UF students to register online MICHAEL ANDERSONAlligator Contributing WriterA program that aims to make life easier for underrepresented students will be adding peer mentors in the fall. The University Minority Mentor Program is a transition program within Multicultural Diversity graduate students in navigating the academic and social aspects of the university. Jarrod Cruz, director of multicultural and diversity affairs at UF, said after entering the program the students are separated into groups called knowledge communities, which includes only students with the same or similar majors. The program seeks out mentors from UFs faculty and staff from every college, Cruz said. Each mentor is assigned to a knowledge community that all have majors within that mentors college. In previous years, the program only searched for mentors among UFs faculty and staff. Having incoming students work with faculty and staff mentors may be helpful for the students academically, but it doesnt help them with the social aspects of campus. UF upperclassmen applied to be peer mentors on a volunteer basis during the spring. Twentyseven of them were chosen to mentor the incoming Burr, program coordinator. Peer mentors can assist the students with their personal and social transition into the university. Burr said this program is meant to increase access and retention among students who are traditionally underrepresented in higher education. This program goes beyond just looking at just feeds the mentee information, Burr said. We try to make sure that both the mentor and mentee are engaged with each other.

A man accused of killing three people at a party near Auburn University turned himself in Tuesday after a three-day manhunt that included a tense but fruitless search of a Montgomery home by police tactical units. A Montgomery defense attorney said she arranged for Desmonte Leonard to surrender after getting word that his family wanted her help. Auburn Police Chief Tommy Dawson said the suspect was taken into custody at 7:57 p.m. by a U.S. Marshal at the federal courthouse in Montgomery. His surrender was a low-key ending to a search that included the inch-by-inch scouring of the house by police armed with tear gas and spy gear. Hours after police conceded Leonard had evaded them at the house, Dawson said the suspect walked up the courthouse steps and surrendered peacefully to the marshal waiting just inside. Its been a trying case for all law enforcement involved, Dawson said at a news conference. Leonard, 22, is charged with three counts of capiover a woman. He is accused of wounding three others. The dead included two former Auburn football players, and a current player was among the injured. Dawson said that Leonard was being booked into a jail in Montgomery and will be moved to Opelika, on Wednesday or Thursday.

Bitter resentment and contempt for those of opposing views is commonplace. It often seems that the stronger the convictions or the more awareness one has of political issues, the more fervently one tends to see others as opponents. One of the more polarizing issues seems to be the issue of same-sex marriage. People from both sides are sharply opinionated on the matter, and it seems that a mutually favorable solution is unlikely to present itself anytime soon. But what if a mere change in tactics by one political persuasion could bring about a reversal of this situation where both sides could achieve their stated goals? I would suggest that there is, indeed, a solution and that it deserves consideration. If right-leaning types oppose same-sex marriage on the grounds that it infringes upon their ability to religiously ment, and left-leaning types tend to view the ability of samesex couples to marry as a human-rights or personal liberty issue, which side is ultimately correct? Unequivocally, I say both. So how do we break the impasse? I would suggest that it could be achieved by merely applying the following formula to the issue, Is there any way to address this problem with more freedom, not less? As columnist and talk-show host Dennis Prager is fond of saying, The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen. If you can agree with this statement, then you can certainly see that there is a larger problem at the core of this issue. At my own wedding nearly eight years ago, an aging Elvis impersonator sang my bride and I the benediction, By the power vested in me by the great state of Nevada and on behalf of the City of Las Vegas, I now pronounce you husband and wife. It wasnt a particularly religious ceremony, but it still required sanctioning by the state. In order for my wife and I to get married, we needed permission, sanction and license from a state agency in line and paid a fee. Since the mid-1800s, Americans have tolerated their government taxing and regulating their own most precious sacraments without giving it a thought. These have in fact caused division and strife on multiple occasions, as in the case of miscegenation laws that prohibited interand a perfect example of government overreach. If proponents of same-sex marriage were to shift tactics from demanding state recognition to the repeal of all state interference in intimate personal relationships, the matter would become merely one of contract law between private individuals. Conservatives would remain free to exercise their consciences within their homes and churches, and same-sex couples would be free to marry whomever they chose with nally be denied another venue to extort funds from a divided citizenry. In my mind, such a liberty movement is long overdue. Everyone deserves compassion and consideration of their own humanity, whether or not we always agree on lifestyle choices. tive and others like me would be proud to stand shoulder to shoulder under it with you.

THURSDAY, JUNE 14, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 When Facebook went public, its initial public offering gave investors the chance to own a piece of the massive social network via stocks. But with the development, the company is bound to change, and this time its not going to be just a revamped homepage. Facebook users have always enjoyed a nearly ad-free homepage, with only a few easy-to-ignore ads popping up. each user, investors and advertisers are going to be trying Making Facebook a public entity could be seen as giving the users control, but how many average Facebook users are going to shell out about $40 for a single share of the stock? ny, what are they willing to do to raise the price tag of their stock? Rumored changes to the website include paying for priority status updates so more people will see them. While this might be good for businesses trying to reach more customers, it could clog up news feeds with posts reminiscent of spam. I think people who didnt expect Facebook to try to nickel and dime its consumers were unaware of the actual status of Facebook a company. While Facebooks humble beginnings and explosion of popularity were impressive, and its motives appeared altruCompanies are in business to make money and Mark Zuckerberg has more than he knows what to do with not to simply give away their products because they feel like being nice. It all comes down to the money. How can Facebook make money on the users? By giving them the option to spend Maybe by giving them the option to pay for a priority status update that everyone and their mothers will see (and whose mother isnt on Facebook these days?). There is a possibility that the future of Facebook might include paying for features we take for granted. How much would you pay to like your friends photo of her adorable new puppy? Im willing to bet a priority status update that Facebook will test the limits of its users wallets on each feature. more money surrounding its existence. But this might not be for the better. According to Facebooks data, the website has more than 900 million active users as of this month. Ill be pany starts asking for chump change to access previously free features. Andi Hendrickson is a columnist for The Lantern at Ohio State University.Facebook is in the business to make money, not to be niceUWireAndi HendricksonUWire Its pretty evident that the GOP agenda is focused on rolling back the clock on women, said Washington Sen. Patty Murray, chairwoman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, after the Senate vote on the Paycheck Fairness Act, which lacked a single Republican vote and failed to advance. Was she serious? vote on this bill the substance of it and ter and are the reasons that this bill did not make it. The bill would have been an expansion on anti-pay discrimination laws already in place, including measures such as salary negotiation training for women and girls, Opportunity Commission to regulate busisuits against employers they feel have discriminated against them. Passing this law would have added up to larger burdens for businesses, including increased costs and time spent on paperwork, more government regulation and control of the employer-employee relationship, a slew of frivolous lawsuits and an early Christmas for trial lawyers. After the defeat, Democrats repeatedly mentioned the high unemployment rate as a reason to pass this bill, stating that it would bring much-needed security to households if not all, of the familys income. However, the bill is just more hoops and red tape for businesses to deal with. Time and money that could be spent working and growing a business would instead be spent battling lawsuits and attempting to comply with new demands from the commission. Businesses could become more reluctant to hire women for fear of one of these lawsuits, which they would be likely to lose. According to The Washington Post, the pay discrepancy between men and women has declined over the years. Today, there is no need for another law to deter businesses from discriminating against women. Market laws work better for that anyway. In a free market, employers choose to pay competitive rates in order to draw the best employees to their company. Decades ago, the argument for legislation supporting means for women to seek reparations when discrimination does occur. Despite what the far left loves to portray, a statistical difference between two groups does not automatically add up to malevolent discrimination. While it may be factually correct to say that on average, women make 77 cents on every dollar a man makes for the same position, upon further consideration of the factors that lead to the statistic, one can conclude that it is not discrimination so much as cultural and lifestyle differences between men and women that lead to this gap. On average, women spend more time on maternity leave and at home with their children than men do and therefore have large gaps in their employment. According to a study commissioned by the U.S. Labor Department in 2009, The gender gap shrinks to between 8 percent and 0 percent when the study incorporates such measures as work experience, career breaks and part-time work. Since women do not, on average, log as many hours as men do, their average salary is less. Ultimately, no need for this legislation exists, and its passage wouldnt have resulted in its intended outcome anyway. These additional regulations would have worked more against women than for them, and it is things like this bill that really roll back the clock on women.

Twenty years later, Willis is now a lecturer and director of the policy debate team at UF. as the UF policy debate director, his squad jumped an unprecedented 62 places in the Cross Examination Debate Association national ranking.

Now that the UF policy team is considered one of the best debate teams in the nation, it has a target on its back.

Benjamin Brasch, Alligator Staff album reviews by tweet this semester. Follow @ AlligatorAvenue for more details. MICHELLE KLUGAvenue WriterFor twins Stephanie and Claire Browning, life is all cupcakes and pretty dresses literally. Managing their newly opened retro clothing and beauty store, Ingenue Avenue, and their twoyear-old cupcake bakery, Sarkara Sweets Cafe, takes up so much of their time they have little room for much else on their schedules. The identical duo opened Ingenue Avenue next to their cupcake shop at 201 SE Second Ave. town clothing void. The store specializes in boutique bath and beauty products and new and used retro clothing Decorated with vintage Vogue ers and miniature sprinkle cupcakes, the shop is sure to appeal to your inner Grace Kelly. We have always admired the visual styles of past time periods, Claire Browning said. formal dresses from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, as well as vintage-inspired items that average $40. We have found that a lot of women are interested in more covering up, Claire Browning said. While the shop does have short dresses, it also carries hardwear suited for the workplace. The twins said they named the shop after the French adjective ingnu, which means young innocence. Dont be deceived by the twins gentle demeanor, soft brown curls, freckles and sky-blue eyes. These ladies have been developing a plan for Ingenue Avenue for years and have just been waiting for an opportunity. our computer we had a logo designed, the name and everything, Stephanie Browning said. The opportunity came about when the clothing store next to Sarkara Sweets closed and they were able to rent the space and expand their business. The two said it is always exciting and nerve-racking when they open a new shipment since they do not see the clothing before. They order from a wholesale vintage dealer in California. Holding up a brown and white dress they call the pilgrim dress, they joke that they have received some off-the-wall items. You take a gamble when dealing with retro, Stephanie Browning said. Their interest in retro design and clothing styles is not only apparent in the products they carry, but also in the hand-picked design they incorporate in the clothing and cupcake shops. Ingenue Avenue is a business venture as well as a labor of love for the sisters. When we were younger, Steph wanted to go into fashion design, Claire Browning added. Stephanie gave up that dream so her sister could pursue archeology at UF. Now, the Browning sisters have opened their books to fashion again and plan to use the same customized touch that they use in Sarkara Sweets. In a month or so, we will be offering beauty products madeto-order, just like the cupcake shop, Stephanie Browning said. Just as in Sarkara Sweets, where you can pick your cake Ingenue Avenue will offer that ucts, where the customer can pick ingredients and scents. Weve seen a really widespread customer base, Stephanie Browning said. The sisters were surprised that clothing store was to a man. He bought a bath bomb for his girlfriend, Stephanie Browning said. Its suited for young women, Claire Browning added. Weve made most of our sales to women 25 to 40. Despite the summer months being generally slower for businesses, the Brownings have planned in advance and set aside money to accommodate. Summer everywhere is a little slower, Claire Browning said. But we enjoy the chance to interact with the customers. Summer in the cupcake shop usual, according to the sisters. People have time to celebrate events I guess, Claire Browning said. Weve done weddings, special events, galas, bar and bat mitzvahs and baby showers. The shops are open Wednesday to Sunday, but thesisters work every day They look forward to training a manager and having more time for hobbies cooking and gardening for Claire and sketching, fashion design and music for Stephanie.Michelle Klug / Alligator StaffIngenue Avenue opened last Thursday and specializes in new and use clothing from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, as well as customizable bath and beauty products.

KATHRYN VARNAvenue WriterTed Kubisek stood in front of the fan to combat the heat during the shops last week of being open for business. He spoke to customers and employees in a way that shows hes known them for years. After 21 years owning and operating Spin Cycle, it was time for a change. By June 19, the warehouse, home to a bike shop, screen printing business and music venue, is set to clear out of the building it has been in for more than a decade. Ive done it for so long that I dont want to do it for ever, said Kubisek, 39. Monster Press Printing, the screen printing business, will continue after the bike store closes. The shop is closing because Santa Fe College is expanding its downtown campus into Spin Cycles building on University Avenue. That has given us, myself, my family a chance, a breaking point that after 21 years seems to make sense, Kubisek said. Kubisek, a Gainesville native, originally opened the shop on Northwest 13th Street in 1991. He graduated from high school at a time when mountain biking was an emerging sport. I was already working in a shop since I was 12, Kubisek said, so by the time I graduated high school, I was well-trained and experienced. From there, Kubisek started running someone elses store, where he sold a lot of high-end and emerging mountain bike equipment. He and some friends decided to open Spin Cycle shortly after. It was very successful right away, Kubisek said. People would travel from other towns to come to our store. We had a lot of organized rides and a lot of community participation. The venue Spin Cycle on Tap was added two years ago. It participated in Gator Stompin and has hosted bands and variety shows. The timing of Spin Cycles opening prevented Kubisek earned a degree. I regret that decision, Kubisek said. He wants to work toward a degree, among other things, after the store closes. I certainly look forward to what it is that my family and friends are going to be doing, he said, but whatever it is will be free from having to do this. Along with continuing Monster Press Printing, he and his wife, Jill Kubisek, 33, plan to travel to Washington, D.C. with their two children, Vander, 2, and Cadence, 10 months, to campaign for President Barack Obama. Thats a plan, thats a dream, Ted Kubisek said. Id like to witness a presidential inauguration once in my lifetime. Despite all of the excitement in new beginnings, Kubisek will miss seeing his children grow up in the bike shop. Thats one of the saddest parts that I dont get to raise my children here, he said. 10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY JUNE 14, 2012Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffSpin Cycle has been selling their inventory since Sunday.

THURSDAY JUNE 14, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 11 BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAvenue WriterWaiters who carry trays of steamy omelettes and grits flutter in and out of a door with hundreds of half-smudged fingerprints. Fathers dole out dated relationship advice to daughters over glasses of orange juice and bottles of Crystal Hot Sauce. As an old man finally mounts his high chair and rests his elbows on the sticky bar, a waitress brings him his standard dark black coffee with a warm smile and a Hey, Charles. Iveys Grill offers a continental-style brunch menu with locavore flair. The experience begins with what seems like an orchestra of greetings from the staff in the dining room, which is adorned with paper mache animals, paintings of Muhammad Ali and plants hung at random. After you take your seat and have your drink order in place, you can settle in to listen to the room. The music, which moves from John Williams orchestral music to West Coast jazz guitar to a patriotic lone French horn, is accompanied by a conversation some intellectuals are having about Leonard Bernstein. All of the unlikely parts mix well together, much like the food. The Smoked Salmon Benedict is an amalgam of tart hollandaise sauce, hickory-smoked salmon and perfectly poached eggs all perched on top of a crisp split English muffin. Iveys Grill smokes its salmon with brown sugar and hickory chips in the morning, only hours before it is served. The sweet smoke of the salmon compliments the two perfectly poached eggs. Hollandaise sauce, which is the emulsification of butter, egg yolk and lemon, used its lemon to cut the fattiness of the fish and add another creamy texture to the eggs, bringing the whole dish into harmony. The potatoes were pan-fried chunks seasoned with rosemary, oregano and lots of pepper. Although the pepper from the potatoes gave a good spice, the potatoes themselves were cold. Where the potatoes lacked in warmth, the service didnt. Every member of the wait staff made sure drinks were full, people had their hot sauce and that you were going to get the pancakes when you come back. It is easy to get a first impression of a staff in one visit, but it takes more than one trip to a restaurant to see what a menu is like, so lunch it was. The crab cake sandwich, Matt & Tomeis Crab Cake Sandwich, proudly displayed sweet chunks of crab from Northwest Seafood, along with capers to add a bit of texture and flavor. To add even more texture and flavor, the cake is topped with lettuce and a dill mayonnaise. Just counterclockwise from the sandwich sat an unlikely soloist, soba noodles. The buckwheat noodles, ubiquitous to almost every Japanese home, took a trip to Thailand as they were tossed with peanut sauce, chopped peanuts, green onions and red cabbage. The green onions helped to cut through the rich grit of the peanuts. What would have truly rounded off the noodles as a Thai dish would have been just a little spice, which would have also worked well with the crab. My mouth, having just been subjected to dill mayonnaise and peanut sauce, looked for something to cut all of the velvety textures. And there it was. Like the somehowoverlooked hot girl with glasses and awkward bangs from your high school art class. I finally realized how beautiful and perfect it was at that moment, three measly slices of watermelon. The cooling organic watermelon, from Bellevue Gardens Organic Farms, mellowed the flavors and cut through the textures of the meal. Throughout the dish, the balance of flavors and textures was never an after thought and it showed. Iveys Grill manages to harmonize different local flavors into cohesive meals for all to enjoy. Check back with The Avenue this summer for more local food reviews.Local eatery Iveys Grill has friendly service and better food The establishment is located on West University Avenue

NATALIE TEERAvenue WriterJohn Pinckard, alumnus of the UF School of Theatre and Dance, helped produce Clybourne Park. The play won a Pulitzer Prize in 2011 for drama and took home Best Play at the Tony Awards Sunday night. Clybourne Park is loosely based on historical events and is inspired by Lorraine Hansberrys A Raisin in the Sun. According to the Los Angeles Times, it is a sharp-toothed satirical drama about the vagaries of race and real estate. Pinckard graduated from UF in 1998 and is now part of JTG Theatricals, a New York production company. The company is made up of three producers. The UF College of Fine Arts and the UF Alumni Association selected Pinckard for the 2009 Outstanding Young Alumni Award. Nick Erkelens, a senior in the acting program of the UF School of Theatre and Dance, got a chance to meet Pinckard during the Spring semester. Pinckard was invited to Gainesville by Florida Players, a student-run theater company that allows students to showcase their work. Florida Players is sponsored by Student Government. Florida Players invited Pinckard down from New York to teach a master class. Master classes provide opportunities for students to meet professionals and have their work critiqued. The guests also give speeches about their experiErkelens said Pinckard was originally in school for lighting design before he switched to production. He was working on Clybourne Park when he came to Gainesville for the class. Erkelens said Pinckard explained that he was willing to support anyone pursuing a craft in theater whether it be set design, production or acting. He was super down to earth, Erkelens said. He gave us his card and said we should contact him if we travel to New York. He was really interested in having a Gator community up there. Pinkard has no plans to slow down after Clyboune Park. He is currently committed to eight seasons as well as two feature Tales of the City, is an autobiographical jukebox musical. Its music is by Scissor Sisters, and the play is about the career of legendary producer/director Hal Prince, directed by Prince himself. He is most notably known for his direction and production of plays such as West Side Story, FIddler on the Roof and The Phantom of the Opera. He is the Steven Spielberg of Broadway, Pinckard said. He took an interest in my producing career and is my mentor. For Pinckard the transition to success wasnt immediate, and he, like others, spent time as a struggling artist in New York. Its kind of like losing weight, you dont notice day by day, you notice incremental changes respectively, he said. Its kind of like that David Bryne song. This is not my beautiful house, this is not my beautiful wife, how did I get here? 12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY JUNE 14, 2012Pinckard David Carr / Alligator StaffWith the edition of all new games, Mars has added a pool table.

Mars Pub and Laser Tag transformed its laser tag arena into an arcade. Eight cabinets feature racing simulators, rail shooter and classic arcade games: Frogger, Galaga and Donkey Kong to name a few.

THURSDAY, JUNE 14, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Born in the U.S.A.The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association named utility player Brian Johnson and catcher Mike Zunino First-Team All-Americans on Wednesday.TweetableI still cant believe Missouri lost to Norfolk State.Patric Young, UF center (@BigPatYoung4) JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer After losing to South Carolina last June, Florida has had the twotime defending national champions number this season. The Gators took two out of three in Columbia in late March, and they eliminated the Gamecocks from the Southeastern Conference Tournament with a 7-2 win May 25. It doesnt mean anything, Greg Larson said of Floridas success against South Carolina during the 2012 season. In Omaha, its just one game, and you just look forward to that one game. I dont think us beating them three out of four means anything to them. However, when the Gators (4718) take on the Gamecocks (45-17) Saturday night at 9, one number will stand in Floridas way: 21. South Carolina has won 21 consecutive postseason games dating back to the 2010 College World Series. A loss to Oklahoma on opening night two years ago marks the last time the Gamecocks have experienced postseason defeat. Streaks or no streaks, were all 0-0 in Omaha right now, Josh Tobias said. Another South Carolina streak matched by Florida this season is consecutive College World Series appearances. The Gators and Gamecocks are each making their third straight trip to Omaha. While Floridas upperclassmen have been a part of all three trips, Saturdays game will mark the ence for several Gators. Its not going to hit me until I get there, Tobias said. Youre playing the best competition every day, and youre going to be on the biggest stage in your life, besides the major leagues. Thats one of the reasons why I chose this school. For Floridas returning players, facing South Carolina at TD Ameritrade Park brings up memories from how the 2011 season ended. However, the Gators say last years loss is a moot point. I dont think theres any bitterness, Larson said. Weve kind of moved on from last year. Were trying to make this year count. Brian Johnson added: Last year doesnt matter. It is what it is last year. Were all grateful to be back with this opportunity and a fresh start, and were ready to go. With nine players likely to leave Florida for professional baseball following the College World Series, a sense of urgency has set in. As the nations top-ranked team, the Gators are favored to win their [to Omaha], my sophomore year, we were kind of happy just to be there, Larson said. Last year motivated. This year is kind of the same attitude. Weve been there, we want to get it done. Tobias added. I expect to win it. We got there last year, and I expect to win the whole thing this year. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org. Florida faces familiar foe in College World Series openerDavid Carr / Alligator Staff Whether the Gators win or lose this years College World Series, Brian Johnson will always be remembered in Omaha. After an apparent Johnson home run was called a ground-rule double in Floridas 8-4 win against Texas last season, instant replay has been implemented for the 2012 College World Series. All that mattered last year is we won the game, Johnson said. I think [the new rule is] pretty cool. The NCAA has wisely limited instant replay to reviews regarding home runs. The three scenarios are: deciding if an apparent home run is fair or foul, deciding whether a batted ball left a ground-rule double and spectatorinterference plays on home runs. Dennis Poppe, the NCAA vice president of football and baseball, discussed the rule change Tuesday. Limited instant replay Joe Morgantwitter: @joe_morgan SEE JOE, PAGE 19TRACK AND FIELD KATIE AGOSTIN Alligator Staff Writer Junior Tony McQuay has had a nice year in 2012. The sprinter started off winning the U.S. Championships in June, then won outdoor title in the 400 meters as well as title. But the year isnt over yet. On Wednesday, McQuay said that this will be his last year running for Florida. From freshman year to now, it has been a long journey, McQuay said. Its been a great experience for me. To go out with a national title, to break school records and go down in history, especially since its my last year here, words cant describe how I feel. Despite turning professional, he intends to still train on Floridas track as degree. However, McQuay hasnt decided who he will be running for yet. Im still not sure who Im going to sign with yet; Im still in the process of deciding where Im going to go, McQuay said. Nike and Adidas are the two of my biggest ones. During his time as a Gator, McQuay has McQuay decides to forego senior season for pro careerSEE TRACK, PAGE 20McQuay Esophageal SpasmOhio State coach Urban Meyer took issue with the NCAA policy that forbids funding high called the rule anti-student-athlete.

Well see how it works, he said. I can tell you every umpire wants to make sure they got the call right. A home run, thats a big play. They want to make sure they get it right. A change in the game of this magnitude has drawn both praise and ire. Although not directly, Florida coach Kevin OSullivan and N.C. State coach Elliott Avent clashed on the issue last weekend. I think its a good thing, OSullivan said Sunday. I think that anything that can help the umpires get the call right I think is a good thing for this sport. Thats not a knock on them not getting the call (on Johnsons home run) right last year. Thats the other thing that makes this sport so good. Theres decisions sometimes in the game that arent right and you got to battle through those decisions. Avent brought up instant replay after the Gators 9-8 victory against the Wolfpack on Sunday. N.C. State shortstop Chris Diaz struck out looking on a controversial called third strike to end the game. A furious Diaz chased after home plate umpire Steve Corvi to argue the call. Any way, its baseball, Avent said. Its what makes it the great, great game. Thats why there should never be replay. I think replay has destroyed football and everything. Like Avent, I consider myself a baseball purist. I like outdoor stadiums, and I believe the designated hitter is an atrocity. Take Me Out to the Ball Game should be the only song played during the seventhinning stretch, and, for the love of God, why the hell is there a pool bar at Marlins Park? However, I support the introduction of limited instant replay. I put emphasis on limited. I support the rules established by the College World Series, and I even think it would be okay to review whether a runner is safe or out. Each team should receive one challenge per game. A successful challenge earns a second. After that, no more, so choose your battles wisely. There will be no counter challenges. No booth-ordered replays. But heres where I draw the line: balls and strikes. Everybody has his or her own strike zone. It varies on the size of the batter and the eye of the beholder. The strike zone should forever remain untouched by instant replay. We dont need the technological equivalent of a fax machine like Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine suggests. Critics complain about instant replay and suggest it will slow down an already untimed game, but if time is a concern, there are plenty of other sports with clocks. Baseball is a human game and, like us, its error-prone. We have used technology to improve our lives. Why not our games? Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator. org.

20, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 14, 2012 AP PhotoTony McQuay runs in the mens 4x400 relay at the NCAA Outdoor Championships on June 9. The junior sprinter won individual national titles in the 4x400 relay and the 400m last weekend. McQuay will compete in 400m at the Olympic trialshelped the men earned all four NCAA titles three indoors and one outdoors. He also won three individual ern Conference titles. Everything just happened so fast for me with my collegiate career, McQuay said. I feel like I just got here. Im not ready to leave, but I have to make the best decision. I wish I could do it all over again. The eight-time All-American holds two school records. He set the outdoor record for the 400 meters at the NCAA Outdoor championships with a time of 44.58. His most impressive record came in his last event as a Gator when he anchored the 4x400-meter team to a world-leading time of 3:00.02 at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. Floridas new record edged out its previous one set in 2010 by less than a half second. When I looked up at that clock I said, Wow, we just did that, he said. It was such an emotional moment for me. With his collegiate career behind him, McQuay will now be focusing on his professional one starting with the Olympic trials on June 22. After setting a new personal record in the 400 meters last week, McQuay feels conhave in Eugene, Ore. Its a big stage, but I raced some of those guys on my way to making the world team. Im not going to go in there scared of them, Im going in there hungry, McQuay said. Whoever wants it more is going to get that spot, but after running a [44.58] I dont think I have too much to worry about. Anything can happen though, but theyre going to have to bring it because Im bringing it. Contact Katie Agostin at kagostin@ alligator.org. TRACK, from page 18THE MCCOLUMN Youve heard of ultimate frisbee you know, that game with the hippies running around barefoot, throwing around a disc and enjoying Janoris Jenkins favorite pastime. Chances are youve come across it at the park or outside your dorm room. You may have even played a time or two. But ultimate has become much more than that friendly game of pick-up.. Just look at the UF mens and womens club teams. During the spring semester, you can see them practicing at Lake Alice Field several times a week. Not to mention the regular conditioning workouts, and the tournaments they compete in throughout the country. Its no surprise both are premier college ultimate teams, ranking in the top 30 nationally the women recently placed 13th at the 2012 D-I College Womens Championships, and the men own national titles in 2006 and 2010. Florida has become a national powerhouse in the ultimate scene, producing some of the top talent in the country each year. Most notable is Brodie Smith, who has gone on to become a YouTube hit, creating ultimate tutorials and even a Frisbee trick-shot series that has gone viral and rivaled the likes of Dude Perfect, the basketball trick-shot artists. Smith now plays professionally in the American Ultimate Disc League, headlining for the Indianapolis Alley Cats. You heard right, its a professional sport now. You can replace those hippies with bona sports like football and basketball and imagine the only thing being passed around now is a disc. The AUDL, currently in its inaugural season, consists of eight teams located in the Northeast and Midwest. Expansion plans have been set to create teams throughout the country by 2014, including Jacksonville and Orlando. It has garnered enough attention to make it into SportsCenters Top 10 plays, and is making the push to become a marketable sport, selling products ranging from player jerseys to autographed discs. The only thing left is for Air Bud: Just Huck It to hit the big screen. This should not come as a surprise. Now played in more than 42 countries worldwide, each year, making it one of the fastest-growing sports in just over 40 years of existence. And despite all of its growth, ultimate has stuck to its roots. At most levels of the game, it revolves around a rule called Spirit of the The best part, heckling is allowed even in the pro league. Hell, its encouraged, as long as it doesnt venture into taunting. So next time you see someone walking around campus with a disc, remember, they might be more than a stoner maybe even a future pro athlete. Just like the football players.
