People began lining up Friday at 10:20 a.m. for the 11 a.m. opening, eager to get their hands on a slice of Gainesville legend. Satchels Pizza opened its doors again the restaurant for three and a half months. Its nice to be back open, said Satchel Raye, owner of Satchels. Its been so hard getting everything back together. A burned pizza salvaged from of the restaurants clear-topped tables. Raye estimates that he spent between $150,000 and $200,000 on repairs to the kitchen, which is ary. The Gainesville community was ready to help. Part of that response was a show hosted by Double Down from the show went to Satchels jobs while the restaurant was closed. Raye also set up an IndieGoGo donation Web page for his employees, and the $20,000 goal was reached in 24 hours. People are all so excited, Raye said. Weve had an overwhelming response its been great. Workers spent 18-hour days burned restaurant. They added an extra oven and a new pizza station as a part of the renovations.

Chemical engineering sophomores Pearl Leung, 19, Michael Cornwell, 20, and Brittany Clendening, 19, planned a bus route to Lake Wauburg for a summer class project. They decided their proposal was worth more than a grade. Clendening said the group hopes to give the proposal to the Regional Transit System by Summer B. The proposed route would run every 30 minutes on weekends starting at 9:30 a.m. and ending at 5:30 p.m. The bus would stop on campus, at nearby apartments and at Lake Wauburg, which offers recreation free for students and faculty. It is located eight miles south of campus on U.S. Highway 441. The trio created a Facebook group called RTS to Lake Wauburg, which has more than 200 members. They plan to present their proposal to RTS and UF Student Government. Chip Skinner, marketing and communications supervisor for RTS, said SG and the UF Transportation Access Fee Committee choose new routes. Skinner said that if the proposal goes through, it is likely to start running in the spring or summer of 2013. THE POLICY ISNT A PATHWAY TO CITIZENSHIP. GLORIA GARCIAAlligator Contributing WriterThe dreams of about 800,000 undocumented students wont be deferred, but their deportations will. The Obama administration said Friday it will grant a two-year protection from deportation to undocumented students who were brought to the United States before the age of 16 and allow them to apply for work permits. The students must earn a U.S. high school diploma or a GED, or serve in the military, among other criteria. The policy is an adaptation of the DREAM Act, which was killed in Congress in 2010. Victor Yengle, president of Coalition of Hispanics Integrating Spanish Speakers through Advocacy and Service, or CHISPAS, was brought to the U.S. at the age of 12. When he was accepted to UF in 2009, Yengle was expected to pay international tuition. You feel like youre in the door and you can see the other side, but youre not able to step in, he said. Yengle, 23, established his permanent residency two years later, allowing him to his dream of being a Gator. Yengle celebrated with undocumented friends on Friday. People were saying, Im going to be able said. Its nice to be back open. Its been so hard getting everything back together.Satchel Rayeowner of SatchelsObama

He started with a piece of green turtle-shaped paper. With the help of some stickers, red circles and a Popsicle stick, he soon held up a turtle fan. Whitten, 4, was one of more than 200 people who participated in the World Sea Turtle Day Scavenger Hunt. The event, sponsored by the Sea Turtle Conservancy, was held at the Florida Museum of Natural History from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday. Participants made crafts, learned about turtles from experts and par ticipated in a museum-wide scavenger hunt. The goal is to get kids to be a lot more environmentally friendly with their actions from an early age, said Rocio Johnson, public relations coordinator for the Sea Turtle Conservancy. Sea turtles are endangered, and people can help them by not using too much plastic and properly disposing of trash, said Melania Lopez, Ph.D. candidate in the biology department and member of the Archie Carr Center for Sea Turtle Research at UF. Abby McLeavy, 10, had a great time at the event. She likes turtles, particularly their size. I just like how big sea turtles are, Abby said.

BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator Staff WriterSome UF students learn best in a sterile classroom with a pencil. Others prefer a sterile meat processing facility with a band saw. The UF Meat Processing Center sells retail meat out of the Department of Animal Sciences, 2250 Shealy Drive, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every Friday. Meat cutting is almost a lost art, said Byron Davis, assistant manager. Two full-time employees, eight undergraduate UF students and three to four temporary graduate students It gives an appreciation of where their meat comes from, Davis said. where the cows and pigs are raised to the processing facility. operation, but the hands-on involvement is important to the students. This is the best experience you can get, said Tommy Estevez, assistant manager of retail. He said students can go into slaughtering, food safety, research and develof work they do with him. My No. 1 goal is teaching, he said. Estevez worked with meat for 22 years at Publix, so he has the chops. The retail store makes $5,000 every Friday, he said. Almost all of the money is used to buy more animals to raise and eventually be used to teach students. He said he tries to instill his passion for butchering in his pupils. We enjoy it so much, he said. It really is a rush. One of his students now runs a meat facility for White Oak Pastures, a Publix meat supplier. Estevez said many people have a negative opinion of meat because of a critical media. This meat tastes the way it used to taste, he said. . . we change the mindset of what food is, one person at a time. Celia Martin, 58, has been buying her meat from UF for a year. You know exactly what you are getting, Martin said. As someone who regularly bikes 20 miles and tries to eat a healthy diet, Martin said she appreciates the fresh taste of the meat and the helpful staff. They know their meat, she said. Students say they appreciate the opportunity to learn a useful trade. Adam Spann, a second-year UF agriculture and biological engineering graduate student, has worked at the meat processing center since 2004 and learned about the job from his brother. Spann, 25, said although butchering isnt his career of choice, he now has a fallback career in a down economy. My next job will suck compared to this, he said. Contact Benjamin S.

In most public high schools around the country, parents are required to sign medical release forms giving high school medication. While it differs from state to state, school nurses are usually only permitted to give students mild over-the-counter medication until their parents arrive. Sometimes, they arent even allowed to go that far. While it is understandable that schools do not want to be held liable for treating students without parental permission, a case at Deltona High School in Volusia County, Fla., shows how absurd these rules can be. Michael Rudi, 17, has asthma and was given a prescription for an inhaler to help him in case of an asthma attack. lease form for him to carry it with him. The inhaler clearly belonged to Michael, given that it was still in the original packaging with his name and directions for use on it. er, to tell her that her son was having trouble breathing. When Sue arrived at the school, she told WKMG that she found MiSue Rudi also wondered why the school didnt call 911 if it was so concerned about giving Michael his medication. not want to face lawsuits due to improper administration of medication, this case takes the cake for incompetency. When Michaels school records clearly indicated a history with asthma throughout his time in the school district, and an inhaler was found in its original packaging with his name on it, there is no excuse for the school nurse not to administer his medication. According to WebMD, an asthma attack occurs when the treated attack can eventually mean death from suffocation. If Michaels mother hadnt been able to get to the school in time, he could have died because of a legal technicality. In these cases, we encourage school administrators to use common sense. We hope if school policies exist for these situations that nurses are properly informed of them. If procedures do not exist for these emergency situations, it is imperative that they are adopted. There is no reason that children have to suffer or die while under the care of school ofIn a gentle act of kindness from the universe, I turned 21 last week. This fall signals the beginning of my last year here at UF. These two facts probably make it seem like I should be good friends with the nice people at LiversRUs or that Im some kind of professional at sneaking and sipping booze whenever possible. Thats not the case. Does this make me better than people who do drink? Not at all. It does make me safer, however. On average, more than 10,000 people will die this year in drunken driving vehicle crashes. Thats about one every 50 minutes. Two years ago, 52,346 people were arrested for drivObviously, weve all heard the lectures: Everything if they try to come between a college student and his or her fun.

I want you to know that its possible to have fun without damaging or bringing potential danger to your selves. Im not asking people to abandon their way of life. Just examine your choices to see if they make sense. A big part of why I dont drink is my size. Im extremely petite. It would more than likely take even less than one drink to put me over the edge of tipsy. Call me a control freak, but I like to have full awareness over myself and my circumstances. Theres no need to leave any of that up to chance. But it doesnt matter what I think, right? Im one very small person in one very large world. I completely understand that people make mistakes; I also understand that we are supposed to learn from them. For example, I can tell you for sure that I wont be a mathematician. I know because Ive learned from the two decades of my life that Ive spent suffering in almost every math course Ive been forced to take. I know Im not going to be a judge on cooking comeating meat nearly eight years ago. However, I do know that for all of those math classes that I toiled through, I found where my strengths were located. It wasnt until my journalism courses here at UF that I could begin to make out what direction my life would go. And while I may be missing out on all the meat or alcohol the world has to offer, at least I know Im doing my part in setting an example for future generations. selves and there ends up being not many more future generations after all.

TUESDAY, JUNE 19, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorUF should take caution when using drone technologyUF is proudly and rightly hailed as a top technology school in the United States. It should come as no surprise that researchers here are at the forefront of developing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs or drones) for military and civilian applications. What might come as a surprise is that the University Police Department is also at the forefront of deploying drone technology as evidenced by UFs appearance on a list of the Federal Aviation Administrations drone tier Foundation. As an engineer, I understand that surveillance technologies can be put to great use and emergency management are among them. But as a citizen, I also know that an excellent tool can be put to other uses, sometimes far more sinister. I read an opinion by Dyllan Furness in the Alligator highlighting the Fourth Amendment protections which could be put in danger with UAV technologies. I agree wholeheartedly that we in Gainesville need to approach deployment of UAVs with security, safety and civil liberties squarely in mind. The capability to misuse and abuse drones in Gainesville skies is just too great. Stephen Marsh Radiation Oncology Scientist UF Alumni On Friday, President Barack Obama announced that the U.S. government would grant work permits and halt the deportation of about 800,000 dreamers. A dreamer is a child of an undocumented or illegal immigrant between 12 and 30 who was brought to the U.S. under the age of 16 and has lived here for more Throughout their whole lives they have been looking over their shoulders with the fear of deportation. Many of them have not had the chance to obtain U.S. citizenship. The presidents move last week changed everything. Obamas executive order could be called The DREAM Act for Beginners because it doesnt encompass the full proposal of the DREAM Act. The full version of the DREAM Act would allow these so-called dreamers to potentially gain U.S. citizenship once they have either served two years in the armed services or gone to an institution of higher learning. This latest executive order doesnt give them amnesty nor does it map out the way to citizenship. However, it does constitute a step toward future victories. Obamas decision to allow these dreamers to continue their lives in the U.S. is not a coincidence. Controversial stances taken by prominent leaders are rarely reached by accident. Dreamers have been some of the hardest and most dedicated activists Ive had the pleasure of working with. They have held countless call-ins, rallies and demonstrations. They have refused to remain in the shadows Theres an important lesson to learn from their persistence and passion: Activism works. This move is quite a shift from the presidents previous immigration policies; Obama has deported more immigrants than any other president has in the past 60 years. More than 1.1 million immigrants have been forced to leave our shores. Faced with a government bent on getting rid of them, the dreamers didnt shy away from the battle. They brought their megaphones and their best chants. They organized and kept going despite all odds against them. the freedom they deserve. It was their hard work and organizational skills. Movements arent spontaneous; they are carefully planned and worked on until every detail is hammered out. Time and effort goes into every facet of a demonstration. The role of an activist is never easy. You are constantly faced with political repression and threats to your personal life. Yet the importance of the cause is stronger than any perception of personal safety. The call to action resonates within, and you are ready to march with the hundreds of others who have woken up. Their victory is an inspiration for any group currently living under oppression. Their triumph is one step forward toward equality throughout the nation. Their hard work paid off and continues to prove that make a difference. The dreamers still have a long road ahead as they continue to organize and work for their citizenship. But every step forward is monumental and deserves to be celebrated. I salute all the dreamers and raise my to victory! Michela Martinazzi is an art history junior at UF. Her column appears on Tuesdays.President Obama halts deportation of undocumented children of immigrantsColumn Michela Martinazziopinions@alligator.org Speaker of the House John Boehner is committed to repealing Obamacare in its entirety, stating that anything short of that is unacceptable. While the American public remains divided on the issue, the Republican Party is not. The rhetoric that comes from the political right when it comes to most controversial parts of the Affordable Care Act and the individual mandate has remained think tanks in this country have consistently called the mandate everything from socialized medicine to a cancer, while the conservative politicians on the other hand prefer the name Obamacare. Regardless of the name used, one thing is certainly clear: Conservatives do not like the idea of the individual mandate. It works like this the federal government will subsidize us to participate in private health insurance markets known as exchanges, and in these exchanges the insurers will not be able to discriminate based on pre-existing conditions. Individuals can opt not to buy insurance, but they will the premium cost down, the government would equate the size of the subsidy to the second-least expensive plan in the market, which is considered competitive bidding to encourage people to go with cheaper plans. That sounds like a pretty good idea to me and a conservative one as well. After all, it is the same plan Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney implemented as governor of Massachusetts. I understand it is one thing to implement a health care reform plan like this in one state, and its a completely different story to implement something like this nationwide. Even though Romney has pandered so far to the right during the Republican primary in order to court the conservative wing of the Republican party, I can understand the argument that he had to implement a healthcare plan like system in the liberal state of Massachusetts. But is there a difference if the same plan is applied federally but only to Americans 65 and up? Well, Republican congressman and chairman of the House Budget Committee Paul Ryan seems to think so, Medicare is very similar, if not the exact same as the individual mandate, with the exception of the fact that it doesnt actually grant coverage like the ACA would. Just ask Boehner, who said of Ryans Medicare plan last year, It transforms Medicare into a plan thats very similar to the presidents own health care bill. There are some parts of the ACA that Republicans are adults being able to stay on their parents health care plan until the age of 26 and not allowing insurance companies to deny coverage to Americans with pre-existing conditions, but is affording all of that possible without the individual mandate? If the Supreme Court strikes down the individual mandate for forcing Americans to purchase health insurance in a private market, they wont look too favorably on Republican demands that Americans do the same for Medicare. If thats not ironic enough, I have a better one. The Supreme Court has already ruled that the social security mandate is constitutional, a single-payer system for healthcare that is similar to the way Medicare works now, which was actually what most liberals would prefer as compared to the individual manbe constitutional. The conservative dream of privatizing Social Security and Medicare would not be constitutional, so conservatives should think twice before calling for things like repealing Obamacare in its entirety.

Because he lives in Alachua County, Mazzota said he understands the vital interests of the Gainesville area, primarily those of UF and Shands at UF, and will represent those interests best in Tallahassee. Having easy access to students could be an advantage for Mazzotta, said UF Student Government Senate President Pro Tempore Logan Harrison. Im excited to see students go out and make [the] change they wanted to see, he said. CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterAbout 70 children lined the edge of the H. Spurgeon Cherry Municipal Pools shallow end Thursday morning. splashed the water in excitement. At 11 a.m., the sound of an air horn sliced through the air as the children and swim instructors jumped into the pool. They hoped to earn a spot in the Guinness World Records along with other swimming facilities and participants worldwide for the worlds largest swimming lesson. Thursdays event was Gainesvilles second year participating in the world record attempt. Last year, more than 20,000 people from about 300 facilities in 14 countries, including 45 states in the United States, broke the world record by giving a swimming lesson at the exact same time. On Thursday, the Worlds Largest Swimming Lesson organization attempted to break that record once again. The organization is collecting information from other swimming facilities worldwide to determine if the record was broken, according to the organizations website. raise awareness for water safety and swimming lessons. According to the groups website, drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death in is totally preventable. There should be no reason why we cant prepare these children to be able to prevent drownings, he said. Swim lessons are extremely important, especially here in Florida where were surrounded by water. For 45 minutes, swim instructors led students, ranging from infants to several adults, in a condensed swimming lesson, which included basic strokes, breathing while swimming, and safely entering and exiting the pool. The more people we can get into the water learning, the less people will drown, said Tyler Marzella, a 22-year-old agricultural operations management senior at UF and a swim instructor on site. While students practiced leg kicks and blowing bubbles underwater, parents watched poolside. Regina Peterson, 51, could not stop smiling as she watched her eight grandchildren participate grandchildren from learning how to swim, she said. But Thursdays event gave them a chance to learn basic swimming skills. Im glad they are part of it, she said. They need to know how to swim. The lessons also helped Petersons 9-year-old granddaughter, Lejuiana Cason, overcome her fear of getting in the water. She would just stand there, and shes like, Im not going in no water, Peterson said. Seeing her brothers and sisters splash around in the pool, Lejuiana worked up the courage to jump in, submerge herself in the water and swim Its encouraging, Peterson said. Its letting them know [the water] is nothing to be afraid of. Taking away the fright, its good.

Thomas Davis wife, Richelle Davis, was arrested on charges of obstructing justice and battery. William Croft, 48, called police hours before about a domestic disturbance between his neighbors, Robert Davis, 21, and his wife, Cecelia Davis, 19. The Davis family was upset with Croft for calling the police on Robert Davis and Cecelia Davis, according to a witnesss statement in an Alachua CounRichelle Davis, 45, went to Crofts house and argued with him about his call to the police. During the argument, Richelle Davis knocked Croft, who was drunk, to the ground with a chest bump, according to the report. While Croft was on the ground Richelle Davis yelled, He hit me, which caused the Davises to run over to Crofts from Randall Davis house. Robert Davis punched Croft in the face multiple times as he lay on the ground. Thomas Davis, 45, then kicked Croft in his groin as Randall Davis, 23, kicked him in the head once. According to the report, police found Croft on his side between two blood-smeared cars. He had spit out a pool of blood beneath his face. Despite blood loss and multiple cuts on his mouth, face and head, Croft was able to say that he wanted to press charges. Contact Benjamin S.

TUESDAY, JUNE 19, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG The Gators untimely demise at this years College World Series was unexpected to say the least. However, a late move by coach Kevin OSullivan in Floridas 5-4 loss to Kent State seemed less likely than UF going two and out in Omaha. Trailing by one run in the top of the and second for All-American designated hitter Brian Johnson. Johnson had struggled in Omaha up to that point with just one hit in eight at-bats to go along with a dismal performance on the mound in Saturdays 7-3 loss to South Carolina. After his early struggles, Johnson had a chance to redeem himself with the goHowever, OSullivan never gave the left-handed junior the chance to reverse his fortunes. Instead of letting his cleanup hitter, a teur Draft, hit with the season on the line in the ninth inning of an elimination game in Omaha, OSullivan called for a pinch hitter. The guy picking up the bat: Cody Dent. Heres a quick history lesson. Dent was named to the College World Series AllTournament Team last season after hitting at a .286 (4 for 14) clip during the Gators stay in Omaha. This season, however, his charm wore off. Dent batted just .134 during the regular season and struck out 22 times in 82 at-bats. During Josh Tobias long midseason absence from the starting lineup due to a broken hamate bone in his hand, Dent often looked lost at the plate. cided to bench a guy with a .307 batting average and 41 RBI for Dent in a one-run game in the top of the ninth with runners Here is the most puzzling development: OSullivan had Dent bunt. I bunted [Dent] because I didnt want to hit into a double play, OSullivan said of his decision. To be fair, I value bunting as an integral component of manufacturing runs. You may be giving away an out, but the value of a base hit skyrockets with a guy in scorBut when youre three outs away from elimination in the College World Series, you cannot afford to give outs away. It is borderline reckless. Johnsons struggles at the plate during this seasons College World Series were clear. He had stranded eight runners on base, and his double play in the seventh inning killed arguably Floridas best rally However, the ninth inning of an elimination game in Omaha is a situation where Poll Question:Which development is more surprising: baseballs early exit from the CWS or the struggle to sell student football tickets?

Randall, who took the loss for the Gators, heat-related issues. I could tell he was laboring a little bit, Florida coach Kevin OSullivan said. I went out there just to give him a little breather to catch his breath. Then when I went out there, it was obvious he was having a little trouble breathing. Crawford came on in relief in the bottom of the second, but the defense behind him was not much improved. After Crawford surrendered a leadoff single to Golden Flashes designated hitter Tobias.

TUESDAY, JUNE 19, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 15 track record has to count for something. In 10 career postseason games, Johnson has hit .368 with one home run and nine RBI. Johnson has proven himself in the past and he should have been given the chance to do it again. If I am OSullivan in that situation, the prospect of Brian Johnson coming to the plate with the go-ahead run on base is exciting. Floridas early exit from the College World Series cannot be pinned solely on OSullivans decision to have Dent bunt instead of Johnson swing away in the ninth inning of Mondays loss. I do not believe that to be the case, and for anyone that does, go back and watch both games again. While the play ultimately worked out the way OSullivan planned, it was a questionable move in Florforgotten. But with a shot at a national championship on the line, benching one of the guys OSullivan claims set a standard at UF was the wrong move. Johnson has been an integral part of the Gators success the last three seasons. At the very least, he deserved a chance to make something happen. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org.

Vickash Ramjit. Very sloppy on defense, especially late in the game, UF assistant coach Brad Weitzel said Saturday. We still [had] a chance, we [were] two runs down. While defense played a role in Floridas early exit from Omaha, its inability to take advantage of scoring opportunities proved costly. The Gators put the leadoff man on base 11 times in 18 innings during the College World Series. However, UF only scored runs in four of those 11 frames. Against Kent State, Florida loaded the bases in the seventh and ninth innings. Trailing by three runs, the Gators put runners on in the seventh inning. Zunino singled up the middle to cut the ter Brian Johnson. With perhaps Floridas best chance at a rally at stake, Johnson plated a run but at the cost of hitting into a 4-6-3 double play.
