A frustrated Gov. Tico Perez tried to keep the debate on track. As a former Student Body president, Perez knows tuition increases are a necessary evil. Fifteen years ago, [University of Central Florida] was known as U Cant Finish, because you couldnt get your classes, he said. He argued that modest tuition increases could alleviate that problem and help students graduate on time. Although UF has raised tuition by the state UF President Bernie Machen announced to UFs Board of Trustees earlier this month he would seek only a 9 percent increase this year to give struggling students a break. Machen previously said a 15 percent increase was necessary to help balance a $38.2 million budget cut dealt by the state. During the legislative session, Machen and Florida State University President Eric Barron lobbied Gov. Rick Scott to approve a bill that would have allowed UF and FSU to increase tuition by more than 15 percent. Despite support from both universities Boards of Trustees and some members of the Board of Governors, the State University Systems highest governing body, Scott vetoed it. All 11 Florida public universities requested increases in differential tuition, which is an increase in base tuition set by the state according to the needs of each university. At 9 percent, UF had the lowest request. Most other universities requested the maximum of 15 percent. The board was divided on the issue.UFs Board of Trustees agree on a 9 percent tuition increaseSEE LOANS, PAGE 4 SEE BOARD, PAGE 4Machen

Four people have been arrested in North Carolina after they mistakenly called the wrong person about drug purchases. The man they got was a Rowpets. The Franklin County resident also has a zebra. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSPa. high school puts itself up for sale on eBayLANGHORNE, Pa. For get magazine drives and candy sales. A cash-strapped high school near Philadelphia hopes to raise money by auctioning itself on eBay. The starting bid of just under $600,000 for The Learning Center in Langhorne, Pa., is designed to offset steep budget cuts. A tongue-in-cheek listing describes the alternative school for at-risk teens as preowned and slightly used. The winner wont own the facility, which is part of the Neshaminy School District. But he or she will get a plethora of goodies, including a naming opportunity, a free large pizza, a personalized school coffee mug and the chance to deliver a speech at graduation. Not to mention the satisfaction of delivering an education to a group of kids who could really use it, according to the ad. Neshaminy officials did not immediately return requests for comment Monday. The 7,000-student district has endured a pair of teacher strikes this year as the school board says it cant afford to meet the unions demands. Learning Center Principal JoAnn Holland says she hopes the auction idea will draw the attention of a wealthy benefactor. Bidding ends Wednesday. I know its crazy, Holland said in a statement. But with the good The Learning Center does, its crazier not to do it. The idea came from recent graduate Casey Young, who knows a bit about unusual auctions: His dad, a writer, tried to sell their family on eBay in 2003. The ad was eventually yanked because the company prohibits selling human beings, but the stunt received a lot of publicity. We did it as a lark, father Steve Young told The Associated Press Monday. Casey seems to have turned this into something that will result in something positive. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS an County sheriffs deputy. The Salisbury Post reported that Deputy Jagger Naves was awakened by four calls to his cell phone at about 4 a.m. Monday. Some of the calls complained about the quantity of drugs they had purchased and wanted him to correct the problem. Naves arranged to meet two of the callers and later met with two other callers elsewhere. All four were ar rested. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSReward offered for Montana truck stop dinosaurMISSOULA, Mont. The folks at Hi-Noon Petroleum in Montana have a new way to turn a dinosaur into gasoline. Theyre offering a $250 gas card for information leading to the safe return of Dino, a dinosaur that disappeared June 21 from the Crossroads Travel Center west of Missoula. We just wonder what happened to him, Hi-Noon marketing manager Earl Allen said Friday. Its a little odd for him to just walk away. The 6-foot-tall green dinosaur sat on a hill overlooking years, Allen said, with occasional appearances in Univer sity of Montana Homecoming parades. That was his home for a number of years, Allen said. Allen said taking the prehistoric icon would have been a bit of a project. Its not like you can just throw him in the back of a pickup, he said. Anyone with information on Dinos whereabouts is asked to call Hi-Noon. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSLoose kangaroo startles Washington state driversPASCO, Wash.

UF is one of 12 participating universities in the Detroit-based competition that gives each team 11 months to convert the car. July 5, 1984 UF President Robert Marston announces he expects to approve recommendations on sexual abuse from the Student Conduct Task Force, which, among other things, has called for live-in house parents at UF fraternities. The recommendations are met with stiff opposition from fraternity presidents and the Interfraternity Council. July 5, 1979 Gainesville City Commissioners decide not to adopt a formal ban on topless dancing and nudity in places that sell liquor. The ban would have limited the number of such places to one per 1,000-foot radius and restrict topless bars from being within 4,009 feet of any church, school or public building.

TUESDAY, JULY 3, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFamily PracticeThe new UF&Shands Family Medicine at Main facility, 1707 N. Main Street, opened last week, replacing Family Medicine at Fourth Avenue. Development of the building began in September 2011 to replace the old center because it was becoming technologically outdated and had problems with plumbing. NATIONAL CLARE LENNONAlligator Staff WriterIn a close decision, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the national health care plan pushed by President Barack Obama and Congressional Democrats. Under the Affordable Care Act, U.S. citizens must purchase health insurance or face a penalty. The law also lets states expand their Medicaid programs for sick and low-income Americans and sets up state exchanges for people to compare policies. The Supreme Court upheld it after ruling the penalty for not buying insurance is a tax. The Court ruled that the mandate does not fall within Congress power to regulate interstate commerce, a provision Chief Justice John Roberts required after that defense was presented. The Governments logic would justify a mandatory purchase to solve almost any problem, Roberts wrote in the Courts majority opinion. Gov. Rick Scott has said he will not expand Medicaid or set up a state health insurance exchange. Allyson Hall, assistant professor and research director for UF Center for Medicaid and the Uninsured, said she expects to see a push for Scott to reconsider. than 26 being allowed to stay on their parents plans. If a students parents dont have health insurance, she said, he or she can shop for a policy or qualify for Medicare if the student is at up to 133 percent of the federal poverty line. Hall said if Scott does not set up an exchange, the federal government will. She sees it as a step forward. I think its the best law they couldve gotten, she said. UF College Democrats President Billy Farrell, a 20-year-old environmental science junior, called it an amazing decision. But to 21-year-old political science and telecommunication senior Katy Melchiorre, it means lost rights. Melchiorre serves as chairwoman of the UF College Republicans. She and her peers expect negative effects and see the act as unconstitutional. I do not think it is the governments place to require me to purchase a product or service and punish me with a higher tax if I dont, she said.

Faced with competition and a market dominated by online learning, the veteran study service is moving closer to campus and will be streaming lessons live. TutoringZone is moving from North Main Street to general manager Alek Hartzog. More students came to tutoring sessions after the com pany put its material online about a year ago, he said. The current building is not big enough to accommodate all of the students. TutoringZone serves 5,000 to 7,000 UF students each semester, owner Matt Hintze said. Its in competition with Study Edge, another tutoring company in Gainesville. In June 2011, nine Tutor ingZone tutors left to start Study Edge, according to Alligator archives. Hintze said he feels he offers competitive tutoring ser vices. He said competition bencompanies to provide better services. Hintze tutors students in business classes about topics nancial planning and supply and demand. I think its critical that the students are always the winners in this, he said. TutoringZone will stream its lessons live online, he said. The study service is opening recording studios in the New Horizons Computer Learning Centers. to continue to innovate with what we do online, he said. The companys goal is to give students more learning tools online than they can get in a classroom setting, he said. However, students can still attend lessons in person. TutoringZone serves UF, Florida State University and Indiana University. Hintze mentioned plans to expand to another school in the fall but would not say which one. The companys expansion doesnt include hiring more tutors, he said. It currently employs nine full-time tutors. Hintze said students should try different services and then decide which service is best for them.

Same Old StoryGovernment in health care is nothing newIn a statement released after the Supreme Courts ruling on the Affordable Care Act, President Obamas signature health reform legislation, Republican South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint said, The Supreme Court may have failed to stop this government takeover of health care, but the American people will not. Many Republicans and conservatives have expressed the sentiment that Obamacare constitutes a takeover of the health care industry by the government. However, referring to Obamacare as a government takeover of health care completely glosses over all other previous interventions of government into the health care market. In the 1940s, wage and price controls enacted by President Franklin D. Roosevelt made it nearly impossible for employers to lower or increase wages for their employees. Soon, employers Internal Revenue Service changed the tax code, making health Of course, this change separated consumers from many of their subsequent health care decisions, limiting competition and market information while increasing costs. ciety, Congress created Medicare, a program providing health Trustees of Medicare have predicted that the program is expected to remain solvent until 2024. And thats a conservative estimate. The health care industry was further altered in 1973 by the Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) Act, signed by President Richard Nixon. These HMOs were insurance companies designed to control rising costs in the health care market by acting as a liaison between patients and doctors to determine appropriate care. Of course, this further removed patient and consumer choice while also mandating coverage of routine health care needs like primary care. offer an HMO option for health insurance, the number of workcent by 1997. Add to these interventions the creation of Medicaid, Medicare Part D and insurance mandates passed by state legislatures (for instance, Florida has more than 40 minimum individual coverage mandates), the health care market in the U.S. is far from free of government intervention. Of course, all of these distortions have consequences, mainly in terms of rising costs. Senior research fellow Veronique de Rugy of the Mercatus Center found that since 1984 annual price of all consumer prices in every year but one. In the end, Obamacare is simply a way for the government to New health care bill deserves a chanceOn June 28, everyone on Facebook suddenly became U.S. Constitution wizards. Experts from the far right to the extreme left spouted their professional opinions and quoted the document like a Shakespearean scholar quotes Hamlet. Did they all collectively earn a degree in American government? No, it was just that the Affordable Care Act, or better known as Obamacare, was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. Many of these constitutional scholars fell back to the tried jab of calling our president socialist, or even worse, communist. I cant help but laugh at the petty insults. As many know, socialism would endorse health care provided by a single payer, i.e. our government. Unfortunately, hundreds of U.S. citizens havent realized that Obamacare will not force the government to provide the masses with health insurance. The Affordable Care Act enforces an individual mandate. This means that every U.S. citizen needs to be covered by some form of health insurance. If citizens decide they do not want to purchase health insurance, despite being able to afford it, they will have to pay a tax. This mandate is not socialism. This mandate just builds on the capitalist foundations upon which our country was created. The health care system has been long overdue for a reform. The U.S. is one of the most powerful countries in the world, but severely lacks when it comes to caring for its citizens. While we stomp around crying Democracy for All!, our health care ranks at a measly 37th worldwide. Our rank is not due to a lack of monetary funds. In 2010, the U.S. government spent nearly $2.6 trillion on health care. These numbers show that despite its best efforts, our country was in dire need of change. Despite the necessity for reform, the issue of a government tax has gotten many in a constitutional rights why the tax should exist. In our current healthcent of all health care costs. When someone without insurance goes into a hospital and receives care, someone with insurance ends up covering what the uninsured cant pay. This the uninsured create and would hopefully lead to a balanced system. There are individuals who dont feel they need to account for others and show this through their distaste for social services. This is one social service that works in your favor. If you purchase health care and encourage others to do the same, you will end up taking care of yourself. If you dont purchase health care, you will end up allowing someone else to cover what you cant immediately afford. Im also excited to be able to stay on my parents insurance until Im 26. Im excited I will never have to worry about the affordability of my medical needs. I believe this is the start to a healthier United States. I encourage you to look at the positive aspect of the health care bill before you promise to move to Canada. Our country is still so young and yet the unhappiness and debt continues. There are many struggles and battles we need to that would provide health care for everyone? I believe our willpower is better used toward the greater battles that are ahead of us.

TUESDAY, JULY 3, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 A Gator GoesAs I end my time at UF, I would like to say the following words to my fellow Gainesvillians: Thank you for being gentle with my fragile beginning and gracefully accepting my exit. Thank you for giving me the music to twirl to late into the night. Thank you for showing me more evidence in support of an It takes all kinds of people philosophy. Thank you for letting me sit next to people who also dont understand musical key every fall in The Swamp. Thank you for teaching me to be my own No. 1. Thank you for those summer nights that are too blurry to attempt to describe. There is a lot I wish I could say I had done with my time here, but I have no regrets. Not even that OKCupid date with Kevin the musician. Im not angry with anyone from my time here. I realized long ago that it wasnt simply fair to claim a grudge on any ground. Its because of my time here that Ive even gotten to see from the shoulders of giants and gained enough courage to write these words: My Title Town, you will forever be in my heart and in my family. Farewell. Brittney Lawhorn Bachelor of Science in Advertising UF AlumnaLetters to the EditorHave you noticed an archery theme in popular movies this year? From The Hunger Games to The Avengers, bows and arrows are all the rage. Now, take a look at Pixars Brave. and period piece. The main character, Merida, must undo a curse using her skill sets: bravery and archery. acter who kicks some butt while caring about her family. Its so important for young girls to have a trailblazer they can look up to; independence and security are crucial traits to develop. Film critics dont feel the same way about Merida, however. Welcome to PopWatch, the pop culture blog of Entertainment Weekly. Writer/blogger Adam Markovitz published a piece titled Could the heroine of Pixars Brave be gay? on June 24. Im not opposed to the idea of a gay character in a lead role, but lets analyze his evidence to see where hes coming from. Merida bristles at the traditional gender roles that shes She enjoys archery and rock climbing and hates the prospect compete for her hand enough to run away from home and put her own mothers life at risk. my desk and remember proper breathing techniques. So, when a girl doesnt want to be forced into marriage and enjoys outdoor activities, that means she must be a lesbian? If Merida had actually ever expressed an attraction to women, then I might be more OK with Markovitzs opinion. But all she did was buck traditional, stereotypical gender roles. Sexual orientation doesnt (and shouldnt) matter. Chris Heller, an associate editor for The Atlantic, listed sexuality (or lack thereof): Brave is about a daughter-mother relationship, and sexuality would distract from developments here. She is gay, and Brave is Pixars subversive way to depict a lesbian. Shes neither gay nor straight; shes asexual. (This would be just as sexually radical if not more so than making Merida a lesbian.) The ambiguity is itself a message. If Pixar wanted Merida to be more of an example for a particular cause, Im sure it wouldve done so in a more obvious way. Ultimately, it doesnt matter if Merida could be interpreted as gay, Markovitz said. Whats most exciting is that she brings a new free-thinking attitude to the slightly staid club of Disney princesses, one thats sure to appeal...to anyone who ever challenged an identity that was pre-assigned to them. Merida, at the very least, is a role model for people who need to stand up for themselves. Perhaps it was good enough that the At its core, Heller said, Brave preaches acceptance.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON Bradley Beals birthday wish came true. On the day he turned 19, the 6-foot-4 guard from Florida was drafted Thursday night as the third overall pick by the Washington Wizards, a franchise looking for an outside shooter and a return to the postseason. During his freshman campaign, Beal averaged 14.8 points and 6.7 rebounds for the Gators last season. Now he joins a backcourt headlined by John Wall, the No. 1 overall selection in the 2010 draft. After working out for the Wizards on their home turf earlier this month, Beal said he felt the organization and the city was the right place for me. Before he left town, he implored Wizards coach Randy Wittman to have the team draft him. Two weeks later, Beals prayers were answered. This is by far the best birthday that Ive ever had, Beal said on a conference call with local media. This really beats all the presents my mom and dad ever got me. His outside scoring is welcomed by the season with a 20-46 record, though a trade deadline deal for Nene sparked improvement. Washington closed the season on a six-game winning streak, providing encouragement for a franchise that missed the playoffs for a fourth straight campaign. Team owner Ted Leonsis has no interest I dont want to be in the lottery anymore, Wizards owner Ted Leonsis said during a press conference before the draft. Considered one of the premier perimeter shooters in the draft, Beal made 8 of 19 attempts from beyond the arc during the NCAA tournament. Last season the Wizards ranked 28th in the NBA from beyond the arc, shooting 32 percent. We had some real good choices there but yes, we were hoping he would fall to three, Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld said of Beal. He can stretch the defense, is a very good three-point shooter and he knows how to play the game. With its second-round selection, the No. 32 overall pick, Washington drafted Tomas Satoransky of the Czech Republic. The 6-foot-7 combo guard spent the past three seasons playing for Cajasol Sevilla in the Spanish ACB and averaged 4.8 points in 34 games during the 2011-12 campaign. The third consecutive Southeastern three picks, Beal was also the Wizards third lottery selection in three seasons, following Wall and another Czech product Jan Vesely, the No. 6 overall pick in 2011. Washington improved its frontcourt depth earlier this month, trading for center Emeka Okafor and forward Trevor Ariza. Add in Beal and expected improvement from those already on the roster and Wall has his owners back regarding that no more being in the lottery thing. Three years in a row is enough, Wall individually as a team and I think were making the right steps. Wall led the Wizards with 16.3 points and 8.0 assists last season, but connected on only 7.1 percent (3 of 42) of his 3-point attempts. The lightning quick point guard remains the teams centerpiece entering his third professional season. Now he has more shooting help. I think hes a great pick, Wall said. So many people wanted to get to him and Im glad that we had the opportunity to pick him. Hes somebody that can make shots and he helps spread the court for you. Jordan Crawford rounds out the expected three-guard rotation. The Wizards second-leading scorer last season with 14.7 points, Crawford took over the starting guard role opposite Wall following Nick Youngs trade to the Los Angeles Clippers as part of the deal for Nene. Beals take on the future pairing shows hes already in harmony with Wall. Wall plays fast and thats the style of play I love to play, Beal said. Hopefully, I can be able to create space for him, be a decoy at times and hopefully be able to knockdown some shots. 14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JULY 3, 2012AP PhotoNBA commissioner David Stern (left) poses with Bradley Beal, the third overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, on June 28. The Wizards made Beal the highest Gator selected since the Hawks took Al Horford No. 3 overall in the 2007 NBA Draft. NBA DRAFT COACHES CAN MESSAGE RECRUITS DURING SUMMER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Kentuckys outspoken mens basketball coach John Calipari has long championed the talent and depth in the Southeastern Confer ence even when the NCAA tour nament selection committee didnt share his optimism. And hes even more bullish about the leagues future now that Missouri and Texas A&M have made the switch from the Big 12 to the SEC. Think about what happens now, Calipari said during Mondays summer teleconference. Now we start moving up a notch in where everybody is. I think seven teams in our league half of our league is going to be in the NCAA tournament. Thats what I believe. Perhaps that is overly optimistic. Theres little doubt, however, that Missouri and Texas A&M add some zy SEC, which has been considered top-heavy on the basketball court during recent years. cord last season and won its eighth national championship, while Flor ida coach Billy Donovan has usually kept the Gators in the national spotlight after back-to-back national titles in 2006 and But outside of those two programs, the SECs national reputation is tepid. Only four teams (Kentucky, Florida, Vanderbilt and Alabama) made the NCAA tournament last year. Thats where Missouri and Texas A&M can help. The Tigers, in par ticular, has a national pedigree in basketball that few programs in the SEC can boast. Texas A&M has also been good in recent seasons, making six straight NCAA tournaments before a down year in 2012. tive immediately in the SEC and should also have one of the leagues best home-court advantages 15,000-seat Mizzou Arena. We have a really good tradition here and were excited about what we bring to the table, Missouri coach Frank Haith said. I think that we have a really good fan base, a great arena and hopefully well be very competitive in the league. While Missouri leaves behind some traditional rivalries most notably its heated home-and-home series against Kansas each season Haith said hes intrigued by the possibilities in the SEC. We leave one power conference for another and Im excited about the opportunity, Haith said. I think being in the Southeastern Conference obviously Mizzou is a national brand and we can recruit nationally but I think theres no question it does open some doors in the Southeast from a recruiting standpoint. The addition of Missouri and Texas A&M isnt the only issue for the two universities on July 1. Other topics on the summer teleconfer ence: The NCAAs new rule changes for basketball were widely praised by the leagues coaches. The governing body de-regulated contact with recruits during the summer months, allowing for unlimited calls and text messages. Any time you open up the lines of communication, thats a healthy thing, Florida coach Billy Donovan said. The NCAA also now allows coaches to spend eight hours per week on the court with players enrolled in summer school. For new coaches in the league like South Carolinas Frank Martin, Mississippi States Rick Ray and LSUs Johnny Jones, its allowed a little extra time to get familiar with per sonnel. Kentucky begins its quest for a second-straight national championship with an almost completely overhauled roster. Stars from last years team including Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Marquis Teague, Terrence Jones and Doron Lamb have left for the NBA, but Calipari has reloaded with some of the nations most highly regarded freshmen, including Nerlens Noel, Alex Poythress, Archie Goodwin and Willie Cauley. You wont believe this, but were going to be really young, Calipari deadpanned. ... What Ill tell you is, I like my team. I think weve got good players, good kids. Some SEC coaches believe the escalating number of Division I basketball transfers needs to be addressed. NCAA president Mark Emmert recently said that 40 per cent of all Division I players transfer before their junior season, the highest percentage of any sport. Both South Carolinas Martin and Auburn coach Tony Barbee said the problem begins before college, when elite players often transfer between high schools and AAU programs. Barbee said a culture has been formed that allows players to run from their problems when there is adversity.SEC mens basketball coaches talk new members, rule changes This is by far the best birthday Ive ever had.Bradley BealWizards guardCalipari
