On July 3 the Alligator received an email from Amy Hass, UF associate vice president, stating the racks must be removed by Aug. 15. During Fall 2009, administrators proposed to UFs Board of Trustees a rule that would prohibit distribution of all publications on campus unless approved by the UF vice president for business affairs, according to information provided by Alligator attorney Thomas Julin. UF didnt contact the Alligator about the change, and the Board approved it Dec. 11, 2009. The change was published but not sent to the Alligator.

Patterson died from throat cancer on July 10. KSL-TV reports he wrote his own death fall.

THURSDAY, JULY 19, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 David Carr / Alligator StaffMayor Craig Lowe speaks at the unveiling of two new biodiesel hybrid Regional Transit System buses Wednesday morning on the Plaza of the Americas. The new buses will run on route 46. LOCAL SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterTwo new orange and blue Regional Transit Service buses will be driving through campus beginning in August. On the Plaza of the Americas on Wednesday, RTS unveiled its new biodiesel hybrid buses that will start running Aug. 19. The new buses will run on route 46, which goes from UF to downtown, said RTS Marketing and Communications Supervisor Chip Skinner. The electric and biodiesel comby 20 to 30 percent. The buses start on the electric battery and the diesel fuel kicks in at certain speeds. Skinner didnt know the exact speeds, but he said the system works like a hybrid car. The buses cost $600,000 each, Skinner said. Curtis Reynolds, UFs vice president for business affairs, said the Campus Development Agreement, which facilitates coordination between UF, Alachua County and Gainesville, funded the buses. During the unveiling, Reynolds said these buses strengthen the universitys partnership with RTS. RTS will be the second agency to use biodiesel hybrid buses. The County, Skinner said. Its been a number of years in the works, Skinner said. Three more hybrid buses will be coming in spring.

According to the agreement, about 70 other police agencies across the state, including Orlando Police Department, Florida Highway will help with crowd control. It is a great honor to have our talents noticed by another agency, and for them to contact and ask us to participate, Tobias said. In April, the GPDs mounted unit traveled to Tampa for evaluation on its crowd control techniques, Tobias said. defensive tactics unique to the horses, which include making arrests from the saddle and preventing people from grabbing the reins. have a vantage point over crowds, Tobias said.

Tobias, a former three-year mounted unit rider, said the opportunity for the GPD mounted unit to travel to Tampa is priceless. Many of GPDs own residents arent aware that we have a mounted unit, he said. So for us to be invited to Tampa to work an event of this magnitude is incredible.

BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator Staff WriterRebecca Harris wanted to learn guitar, but she never got the chance. Rebecca, 20, died July 11 at Shands at UF from injuries after a hit-and-run accident on June 23 while crossing Southwest 16th Avenue on her bicycle. Since Rebecca was young she always gravitated to the loners. If someone was sitting by themselves, even in elementary school, she would sit with them to make sure they werent alone, said Shelly Harris, 44, Rebeccas stepmother. Rebecca lost her biological mother and gained Shelly as her stepmother when she was 7 years old. Rebecca met her she grabbed her hand and asked her to go on a merry-go-round. It made me feel accepted, immediately accepted, she said. She said she remembers her and her Becca boo, as she called her, being at the back of family bicycle trips chatting away the time. Shelly Harris said Rebecca always loved being outside. She taught herself to surf and loved to scuba dive and paddleboard. She was the only one we could get to weed out in the yard, she said. In Gainesville, she was in the process of deciding to become a journalism major with a history minor. Its been a very challenging but uplifting few weeks in Gainesville, said James Harris, 47, Rebeccas father. Our faith and trust in God have been revealed. He said the amount of people who have helped them throughout this process has been over whelming. A detective from the Gainesville Police Department came out several times to check in on the family. He was just being a human, James Harris said. Many of Rebeccas sisters in Theta Alpha, a Christian sorority, held a vigil at Shands at UF when she died. James Harris said many of the sorority sisters told stories about Rebecca, some of them he and his wife had never heard. When children go away to school it is a time for them to gain their independence and do what they do, he said. Many times parents dont know how that evolution is going. Rebeccas time at UF changed on Oct. 16, 2011. Kayla Fernandez, a 21-year-old early childhood education senior, said she chose her as her little in Theta Alpha based off of almost nothing. She said she chose her because she stood out in a crowd. Talkative, tall and cute. Fernandez said she and her little read the Bible together. Rebecca would regularly ask questions too deep for Fernandez to answer. She was just a very insightful person, she said. During their movie nights together, Rebecca would make brownie batter, which rarely made it to the oven. One night they were hanging out, and Rebecca decided she wanted to dye her hair. newly dyed hair she said, Eh, Ill get used to it. She rolled with anything, Fernandez said. ... she was one of the most amazing people I knew. Rebeccas death has touched more than just her big sister in her sorority. Stefani Broome, a 21-year-old religion senior and president of Theta Alpha, said when alumnae heard about Rebeccas death they group with support and love for the sister theyd never met. who was an active part of this sorority, she said. Broome said she was lighthearted and loved to meet people. She wasnt exclusive in any meaning of the word, she said. Broome remembers going to Rebeccas dorm in spring to teach her guitar. Thats when she really connected with her. She was the girl you saw on campus, in Turlington, everyone recognized her, Broome said. She was that girl. Contact Ben Brasch at bbrasch@ alligator.org.

New York Times turns a blind eye to the people of the Middle EastIn a July 9 article in the New York Times, Scott Shane reports that amid the chaos of the Arab Spring and the ascent of the Muslim Brotherhood to Egypts presidency, ships in the region. What those friendships will now entail, according to Shane, are newly brokered relations between the U.S. and hard-line Islamist regimes in the area. Shane makes the rather glib assertion that because the Obama administration, unlike the much-lamented Bush administration, is willing to negotiate diplomatically with not only the Muslim Brotherhood but also members of the terrorist organization Al Gamaa al-Islamiyya, it has ushered in what the State Department is calling a new day in a lot of countries across the Middle East and North Africa. In making this bold statement, Shane essentially cedes legitimacy to theocratic governance in a region not known for its sterling human rights record. Shane states that in viewing Islamist groups, Americans are responsible for recognizing distinctions between levels of tinguish between Islamists, who advocate a leading role for Islam in government, and violent jihadists, who espouse the same goal but advocate terrorism to achieve it, he said. By this measure, whippings, beheading, amputations, sexual segregation, religious discrimination, death for apostates and international hostility, even if only concealed for the rest of the non-Islamic world including the United States and its ally Israel are merely par for the course and ought not to be mentioned among friendsas long as it doesnt spill over into our interests. This is, in my opinion, the same type of willful ignorance of danger that Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain displayed in the face of a rising German threat before World War II, telling the British people repeatedly that no one, not even Hitler, could behave so rashly as to break the peace. It took a lion-like Winston Churchill to untangle the mess that Chamberlains sheepish behavior created. If there is one thing that can be said of Islamist groups, or any extremist group that claims a divine mandate, it is that they are sincere and acting in earnest. To put it another way, they mean business and should be respected and treated with caution. Anyone who believes his or her God commands him or her to secure devotion by any means is not likely to participate in a lot of give-and-take or diplomatic aplomb. That would entail a weakening of the divine mandate under which they operate. A soldier of God will not concede this at any cost. The Times can be counted upon to take its usual position: If its bad for America, they love it. This isnt much of a surprise to those of us who read it. What surprises me is the brazenness with which it also throws the interests of the ordinary people of the region under the bus as well. What was the No. 1 fear of those who didnt support the Muslim Brotherhood in the Egyptian elections? Religious oppression. Why is the Egyptian military counsel withholding power from the new government? The same reason. How many people are being killed across the region due to our seeming inability to distinguish friend from foe? Go ask the Iranians we abandoned in 2009 or the Syrians being massacred today. The Times was swift to laud this so-called Arab Spring as hope and change. I wonder who theyll endorse for president. Joshua Fonzi is a microbiology and cell science and entomology and nematology senior at UF. His column appears on Thursdays.Save the RacksThe Alligator needs your helpAfter two and half years of negotiation, UF has recently informed the Alligator that it will be removing 19 of our orange racks by Aug. 15, conveniently at a time when fewer people will be around to notice the changes. These 19 Alligator racks, which are in some of the most visible places on campus, will be replaced by large black modular university-owned racks, similar to the ones on Turlington Plaza. In order to use these new racks, the Alligator will have to sign a licensing agreement and pay a fee to UF to lease space for our papers. By removing our racks, we believe the UF administration is not acting in the best interest of the students. With UF now controlling our distribution on campus, what happens if we have coverage of the UF administration that they find unfavorable? Will this change our relationship with the university? The uncertainty of this new arrangement will create a chilling effect, hampering our ability to provide students with the most accurate and unbiased coverage. Students might also receive less important news and information in the future. The new modular racks could also have a negative effect on our readership. They are less visible than our orange racks and are less protective against inclement weather. Because we are independent, we rely on advertising funds to operate. If the new racks cause our circulation to decrease, we could potentially lose advertisers, meaning students will get fewer papers, fewer pages and less news. Retired UF economics professor David Denslow Jr. at the UF Bureau of Economic and Business Research has been analyzing data to see what effects this change would have on our circulation, but the administration has refused to let him finish his work before removing our bins. Today, we ask you, the Student Body, to help us Save The Racks. For more information, you can visit www.alligator.org/savetheracks. On the website, you can find and sign our Change.org petition, which we will be presenting to the administration. No other publication at UF does what we have been doing for the students of this school for 106 years. This is certainly bad for the 50 people who work at the Alligator each semester. Its even worse for the 50,000 UF students who rely on our ability to provide comprehensive, independent and unbiased news. Joshua Fonziopinions@alligator.org

Then, he comes from behind on the last event, the 4 x 400 relay, to win that race, again breaking the alltime UF record while also enabling the UF Mens Track team to win its Championship. And he doesnt even get nominated for Best Individual Performance? Give me a break. Give him a break! Geoff Pietsch Gainesville ResidentSomething you need to get off your chest? Send letters to the opinions editor at jhayes@alligator.org. Letters should not exceed 150 words, please. Letters to the EditorAs a passionate, self-proclaimed feminist, I have a problem with the recent uproar resulting from Daniel Toshs decision to respond, rather menacingly, to a female heckler at one of his shows. Dont get me wrong, I thought Toshs response was pretty lousy. Most of all, his response wasnt even funny. But does he deserve to be at the receiving end of an angry online mob that will not acknowledge that a bad joke is just that a bad joke? My point is not that rape should ever be taken lightly of course not. There seems, however, to be some discussion of how a rape joke should be delivered and the context within which it is appropriate. But who decides what kind of rape joke is ever appropriate? Comedians make fun of all sorts of intimate and important things: religion, family, sexual orientation, death, people with disabilities, etc. The list is endless and hardly ever appropriate. If we draw a line at one point, then shouldnt we police all other jokes just as harshly? Everyone has a right to take offense to any jokes made by Tosh or any other comic act. When I attended Toshs perfor mance at UF last spring, I found myself laughing at jokes that were often harsh and highly inappropriate, but isnt that what Tosh does? Shouldnt the offended female heckler have taken the context into consideration? After all, the woman was there to watch Tosh, and he isnt exactly known for making intellectual jokes. He is best known for his crude, immature and offensive brand of humor that takes little to no consideration for any aspect of society. When an audience member called for Tosh to strip during his performance at UF in April 2011, his response was, Im not going to do that. Its good to know whores get into UF. medians such as Tosh take, then heckling during such perfor mances is also a risk that audience members should take while being prepared for a candid and usually harsh response. I feel bad for the female heckler who was upset by Toshs response. She had every right to feel that rape should not be a topic joked about at a comedy club. In fact, I am sure most of us feel that same way about some topic or another. what is too much or too far should not be used to limit the creative work of acts such as Tosh or other comedians. Context in this regard is important. A politician or celebrity going on a harsh, offensive tirade is one thing, but you have to cut some slack for someone like Tosh, who rarely leaves anyone out from being a victim of his crude jokes. Tosh made a poor choice of words and apologized for it promptly and what appeared to be sincerely. Lets just accept his apology and move on to more serious isdoes not seem like one of them to me. Anam Wahidi received a masters degree in mass communication with a specialization in international/intercultural communication.Fellow Feminists: Tosh is not worth the outrageGuest columnAnam WahidiSpeaking Out If youve got a business you didnt build that. Somebody else made that happen. at a speech in Roanoke, Va., last week. This quote is making the rounds on conservative blogs and on social media websites. Progressives and supporters of the presidents re-election campaign might not understand what the big deal is. After all, the progressive ideology is perfectly in line with this quote. You, the individual, cannot make it. You, the individual, have no chance. You, the individual, must struggle unless you allow greater government intervention in your life. Progressives believe in government programs. These programs may have good intentions, but they rot the social structure. They corrode individual responsibility. They create dependence. government is created. With increased access to student loans, saving for college becomes less important to the individual. loosened work requirement for welfare, looking for a job becomes less important to the individual. With Social Security and Medicare, saving for retirement becomes less important to the individual. When individuals en masse decide to stop saving and instead rely on entitlement programs, government engages in massive spending. Conservatives believe the individual is the fundamental unit of American society. The individual, when free in enterprise and occupation, has the ability to pursue a life of security and prosperity. The president and his progressive supporters want you, the individual, to stop listening to conservatives. Conservatives will worry you with talk of massive deficits and a growing national debt. Conservatives will tell you that the government must live within its means. They will tell you that the answer to economic growth is a reformation of the nations grotesque tax code. They will tell you that providing certainty to investors and business owners is the best plan of action. Conservatives will warn of a coming debt crisis where the production of the nation will be sapped by the burden of government spending. In no distant time in the future, entitlements and interest on the national debt will swallow the federal budget. Conservatives, after all, believe in you. It is time for you to believe in yourself, despite what the president says. You, the individual, can use the talent and skill acquired through education and experience to pursue prosperity. ity or mediocrity. Do not be fooled by the enticing programs that progressives applaud. They are short-term solutions with grave consequences in the long term. For your prosperity and that of future Americans, consider standing with Mitt Romney. Consider standing with conservatism. Stand up for the rights of the individual. Stand for a limited government. Stand for enterprise and prosperity. Stand for a tax code that provides certainty. This November, both sides agree that the choice is divided along clear fundamental lines. Standing with the president is to stand for dependence. Standing with Mitt Romney is to stand up for yourself. Believe in yourself. Believe in the enterprise and prosperity that the individual is capable of. Believe in America.

JOSHUA MINCHINAlligator Contributing WriterAt 27, Will Frazer decided to retire. A UF business graduate, Frazer spent several years as a bond trader on Wall Street before returning to Gainesville and teaching math at F.W. Buchholz High School. He might be able to boast more about the second job. During his tenure at Buchholz, which began in January 1997, Frazer led the Buchholz math team to eight straight state championships and six straight national championships in the math honors society Mu Alpha Theta. Frazer, 53, began taking his students to competitions in 1998. They didnt go well. Although Frazer became discouraged, his students enthusiasm motivated him. I decided we were going to be winners, or I wasnt going to do it, Frazer said. Winning the Mu Alpha Theta National Convention on July 13 marked the sixth straight national championship team Frazer has coached. Although Frazer is competitive, he is especially excited to see his students grow personally. John Phillpot, an 18-year-old recent Buchholz graduate, said the team developed his strong work ethic. Id be such a slacker without the team, he said. Phillpot, who is attending Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, Calif., competed in eighth grade and throughout high school. Preparation is what sets the Buchholz team apart, Phillpot said. Team members prepare for tournaments with two to three hours of nightly studying, and they took summer, he said.

MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator Contributing WriterEach year, enough Americans become infected with HIV to match the UF student population. The number of those people who are unaware theyve contracted the C. OConnell Center to capacity. But the Food and Drug Administration plans to reduce this years statistics. On Monday, it approved HIV infection. Gilead Sciences once-a-day pill Truvada will now be available to uninfected individuals who may engage in sexual activity with HIVinfected partners. It keeps the virus from replicating in the body, said FDA spokeswoman Stephanie Yao. In 2004, the FDA approved the drug for the treatment of HIV-infected adults and children 12 years or older. But two large, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials revealed Truvadas potential for preventing contraction of the AIDS precursor, Yao said. One study found that the drug reduced the risk of HIV infection by 42 percent in gay and bisexual men who participated in high risk behavior. Another study focusing on heterosexual couples in which one partner had HIV showed Truvada reduced the risk of infection in the other partner by 75 percent. Currently, the pill is only available as a preventative measure for adults and must be prescribed by a doctor. Truvada is expected to cost at least $13,900 a year for treatment in the U.S., according to Gilead Sciences. The most common side effects reported with Truvada included diarrhea, nausea, abdominal pain, headache and weight loss. Uncommon side effects can include kidney problems or bone toxicity. The drug is to be used in combination with safe sex practices, risk reduction counseling and regular HIV testing, according to a statement from the FDA.FDA approves once-a-day pill to reduce risk of HIV infectionEDUC A TIONUF alumnus continues legacy of success at Buchholz High CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterDetectives from the Alachua Counman on Tuesday who was connected to a Feb. 24 bank robbery in Gainesville.

Tweet them @Alligator Avenue or email to avenue@alligator.org As soon as I saw Water Buffalo Burger my inner cromagnon club-wielding caveman needed it. BENJAMIN S. BRASCH Alligator Staff Writer The Avenue is accepting questions for an advice column this summer. Visit http://mediocreadvicegators. tumblr.com/ask to submit questions. BLOG AND FACEBOOK PAGE INDIE GAINESVILLE HAS ABOUT 6,000 PAGE VIEWS A DAY JESSICA KEGUAvenue WriterBy the age of 10, Whitney Mutch and her younger sister made a pact to always keep their own last name, even through marriage. Twenty-two years later, that pact is still intact and her passion for independence has now formed a community. Mutch, a Gainesville native, created the blog Indie Gainesville last August as a way to organize a collective voice for the independent local businesses in Gainesville. As the wife of a local business owner, Mutch saw the issues that many local businesses were facing such as parking in the downtown area and felt they needed to be faced together. Indie Gainesville now has nearly 60 local businesses as members, more than 2,300 friends on Facebook and according to Mutch, who handles everything online herself, aver ages 6,000 to 7,000 blog views per day. While its original purpose was simply to bring together local businesses and promote awareness, its function has evolved further to include informing the community about local art and music events and acting as a liaison between local government and its local business owners. Mutch said one of its most successful endeavors to date was the Think Local Civic Forum in January, which they co-sponsored, and where all but one of the candidates for city commission was in attendance. More recently, Indie Gainesville and its members were invited to an informational meeting at the Depot Building where local businesses, entrepreneurs and restaurateurs were given an opportunity to see the space before it is formally offered to the public for tenancy. The Facebook page has also become a space for residents and businesses to ask ucts, share events and offer support. Chad Paris, co-owner of Parisleaf Printing and Design, a company that strives to help businesses become carbon neutral by planting more trees than they consume, is a member of Indie Gainesville. For Paris, the most important and helpful function of Indie Gainesville is its online presence. Indie Gainesville is extremely proactive online and has helped to increase our online visibility to like-minded individuals, Paris said. Parisleaf was named the 2011 business of the year for its commitment to the environment by the Gainesville Chamber of Commerce. Mutch said right now she is working on a back-to-school guide to Gainesville for newcomers and incoming freshmen that will be posted on the blog and possibly printed for distribution. It will include a guide to parking downtown as well as plenty of information about living and eating local. I used to go to the farmers market all the time anyway but now I have to in order to see who is new. Mutch said. During her childhood, Mutch remembers her parents always promoted buying local but according to her, Theyre not hippies. I guess thats one of the barriers Im trying to break down, Mutch said, the idea that buying local is only a hippie thing to do. Youre investing in your community, and you get back what you put in.Courtesy of Indie Gainesville The blog was created just under a year ago. The founder, Whitney Mutch, does her part to inform community members about local events and businesses. Indie Gainesville strives to keep the community informed NATALIE TEERAvenue WriterAccording to a press release from Pat Lavery of Glory Days Presents!, Double Down Live, located at 210 SW Second Ave., is changing its name to HIGH DIVE. Everything about the music venue including, music variety, staff and ownership will stay the same. Even the logo is similar to the original. In March, the Gainesville venue was sent a cease and desist order from a Las Vegas bar Double Down Saloon, which owns the trademark ownership decided that a name change would be the easier route. High Dive was chosen because the bar is often labeled as a neighborhood dive bar paired with its high standards of providing ser vice. The new name came at the one year anniversary of the venue.

The lunch menu at Civilization is well thought out and executed even better, but as 5:30 p.m. rolls around, disaster strikes. Dinner options are limited to locally-made dishes with names and prices that boast excellence. They fall short. Dinner started with what were supposedly famous onion rings according to an everpushy waitress. Beer battered grease laden onion rings were not my idea of famous. The accompanying sauce popped with black sesame seeds and a sharp gar lic taste. Chicken Piri Piri, a broiled ginger-lime chicken, served greens in a peanut sauce which I thought would tickle my Southern sensibilities. The chicken was a combination of charred and under cooked with a light lime taste and very little seasoning. Plain rice sadly sat next to a granular mess of peanut butter and underseasoned collard greens. The waitress, in between sales pitches of organic sodas, brought bottles of homemade hot sauce to liven up the meal. One bottle bubbled and hissed. I should have known better.

ly attacked my nostrils. Lack of seasoning, nasal chemical warfare and a $25 dinner aside, lunch was a completely different meal. As soon as I saw Water Buffalo Burger my inner cro-magnon club-wielding caveman needed it. Now. And then there it was. A massive meaty amoeba of blanketed with melted white cheddar cheese. The burger was wedged between homemade pickled cucumbers and onions, rosy red tomatoes and raw red onions. Beside the lean buffalo burger were perfectly browned and salted potato wedges with a sprinkle of parsley. The Blackened Shrimp Platter is served with ame base as the onion rings dipping sauce, potato wedges, blackened shrimp and fresh slices of avocado and tomato. The shrimp was seasoned with paprika and lots of black pepper. Coleslaw is an art in the south, and the coleslaw and Civilization strikes a balance of sweet and tart. It takes attention to detail to bring a meal together. Lunch and dinner at Civilization are totally different meals. Civilization opened in 2009 SAMANTHA SOLUMAvenue WriterMost weekends Jeff Abalos, a 20-year-old political science senior would live off of two boxes of rice from Steamers. But, the restaurant, located on 1618 NW First Ave., closed its doors before May 1, 2011 and remained vacant until two weeks ago. Owner of Gator Spirit Food Store & Coin Laundry, 58-year-old, Nailesh Patel, believes he has what it takes to make this spin on fast food last in the same location. Steamers was founded in 1982 and bought by the previous owner around eight years ago, who also owned Tasty Buddha. Now the one-room restaurant holds the name Gator Spirit Food Store & Coin Laundry and still shares the building with the convenience store and Laundromat, tucked away behind the Midtown bar district, giving it the appeal of a favorite local dive. The chef, Cedrik Austin, uses his 12 years of cooking experience to whip up meals in large, blackened woks only feet away from the bench where customers sit and inhale the rich smell of Indian spices in anticipation. Austin adds his made-fromscratch hot sauce upon request amongst the basmati rice, choice of meat and variety of fresh vegetables. Patel said summer business is slow in Gainesville, but the restaurant has had positive feedback already developed repeat customers. Abalos has already been back twice. Although the restaurant is somewhat hidden, Patel doesnt worry about advertising because he believes his customers opinions are more valid than writing on a piece of paper. Gator Spirit Food Store & Coin Laundry has developed a solid customer base for nearly 25 years and Patel trusts word-of-mouth will continue to bring business to the restaurant. The menu is similar to Steamers with some additional items like samosas and deserts and with slightly higher prices but the same large portions. Patel said he keeps his prices as low as possible because he knows that college students are his main customers and that they barely have any money. We want to provide a fresh and healthy option, he said, that is still cheap and fast. 12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 19, 2012 David Carr / Alligator StaffGator Spirit Food opened two weeks ago.

Adam Jalali, marketing associate for the Hippodrome, said the theater missing. We had humble beginnings, starting out in a hollowed out 7-Eleven type of place, and weve grown from there, he said. We provided Gainesville with the cultural hub that it needed. Jalali said despite movies and television, nothing compares with watching live theater. Youre seeing this production unfold and youre seeing these human beings absorb themselves in a role, and thats something thats just irreplaceable, he said. Theres something so much more captivating about live theater than any other medium. Jalali said that the theater manages to stay successful due to the types of shows it produces. Our shows are modern and relevant, he said. We stick around because people just cant get enough of it. Its a completely different experience we sell at the Hippodrome and I think well be around for a while. Jalali said that from the moment a show closes, the Hippodrome staff immediately starts working on the next production. This season will be the theaters thank-you letter to its patrons by delivering plays the audience has been demanding, Jalali said. The theater will produce the Broadway shows Other Desert Cities, Venus in Fur and Avenue Q, along with A Christmas Carol and Robin Hood. The Hippodrome has been producing A Christmas Carol for 34 years, he said. This is our most ambitious season Theres something for everyone and we went out of our way to get these great shows that you wouldnt see in Gainesville unless we had them. showing of Other Desert Cities on Aug. 29. Jalali said he usually gets emotionally attached to each production. You become a theater person working here, and you see the process behind these shows and how much work goes into it, he said. You get into the show with your heart and soul and it becomes you. When the show does well, it makes you feel that much better cause youre proud of your work. Rocky Draud, managing director of the Hippodrome, said the theater has grown to become the cultural heart and soul of Gainesville. The Hipp inspires and nurtures artists through internships, workshops, and festivals and contributes to the well being and the economy of our community, he said. For at least 340 days each year the lights are on and an event a play, movie, civic forum, or community meeting occurs at the Hipp. Draud said that theater is an essential experience to the growth and enjoyment of life.

The Gators will have one fewer tight end going into fall camp. Sophomore A.C. Leonard, who was arrested on a domestic battery charge in February, made the decision to transfer after talking with coach Will Muschamp on Tuesday. It was a mutual decision, Muschamp said. Leonard has not decided where he will transfer. The tight end played in nine games last season and recorded eight catches for 99 yards. Sometimes it doesnt work out, and he needed to move on, Muschamp said. According to the February ar rest report, Leonard pushed his girlfriend to the ground, pulled her hair and dragged her out of the apartment by her feet. He then locked her out of the room. I wish he wouldnt have left, senior linebacker Jon Bostic said. I dont have all the details to what went on with that, but I just wish him the best in wherever he decides to go. Somebody is getting a good player. Florida returns Jordan Reed as the starting tight end in 2012. Reed caught 28 passes for 307 yards and two scores last season. Omarius Hines will also see time at tight end position this season; however most of his time As a junior, Hines caught seven passes for 106 yards. We have the two freshman coming in were excited about, Muschamp said. guys at the position. Thats what we need. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org and Corey McCall at cmccall@alligator.org. JOE MORGANAlligator Staff WriterHOOVER, Ala. While the Gators nior Mike Gillislee gives them some cer tainty at the running back position. In fact, Gillislee has the 2012 season planned down to the box scores. My goal is to get 1,500 yards and 24 touchdowns, he said at the Southeastern Conference Media Days on Wednesday. I havent set a goal for receiving yet. Gillislee averaged 5.9 yards per carry in 2011. Assuming he matches his yards-percarry average from last season, Gillislee will need more than the 56 carries he accrued as a junior to reach his goal 199 more attempts, to be exact. As the Gators primary running back heading into the 2012 campaign, Gillislee will likely receive the necessary reps. Slated behind Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps on the depth chart last season, Gillislee received just 12 percent of UFs carries in 2011. [Coach Muschamp told me he regretted it, but I dont really see it as a regret because thats in the past, Gillislee said. Now is my opportunity, and I will keep it that way. However, even with increased playing time, reaching his lofty goals will be a challenge. The numbers Gillislee is aiming to accomplish would earn him a place in Florida record books. Rushing for 24 touchdowns in 2012 would move Gillislee ahead of Tim Tebow, who scored 23 in 2007, as the best singleseason mark in UF history. Emmitt Smith holds the record for running back with 14 touchdowns on the ground during the 1989 season. If Gillislee hits the 1,500-yard mark, he would be 99 yards short of Smiths single-season rushing record, which the Pro Football Hall of Fame member also set during his junior campaign in 1989. Hes ready to tote the load, redshirt senior linebacker Lerentee McCray said. Hes ready to be that premier back everybody wants him to be. He said he can get 1,500 yards. I think he will get it if he wants it bad enough. McCray at Buck, Powell recovering: Junior Ronald Powell has been cleared to lift weights again after suffering an ACL tear in his left knee during the Orange and Blue Debut on April 7.

The junior has totaled 386 yards on 34 catches and three touchdowns in two years and brings the most experience to this position for the Gators. Omarius Hines, redshirt senior Hines will spend most of his time at running back this season but brings some much-needed experience to the tight end position. In three seasons, the senior has 41 catches, 559 yards and two touchdowns splitting between the slot and tight end. Clay Burton, sophomore Burton transitioned from defensive end to tight end last fall due to injuries and depth issues. The sopho more appeared in one game last season. Tevin Westbrook, sophomore Westbrook switched to tight end this summer. Last season, he appeared in three games playing as a reserve on the defensive line and special teams. Kent Taylor, freshman Taylor is rated as the No. 1 overall tight end recruit in the 2012 re cruiting class according to Rivals. com. The four-star recruit from Land OLakes High is listed at 6-foot-5 220 pounds.

20, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 19, 2012 Will Muschamp said. Hes not changing direction or taking on blocks right now. As many of you know with an ACL situation, that always takes time. Hell play for us this year. When that will be, I dont know yet. Until Powell returns to the lineup, McCray will regularly play the Buck position as a hybrid linebacker/defensive end. McCray recorded 24 tackles (7.5 TFL) in nine games last season. McCray will play Buck in the subpackage, and Powells injury will lead to increased reps in the regular package. Lerentee was a guy that was banged up a little bit last year, Muschamp said. I held him, he probably could have gone. (He) can play both outside linebacker positions, can give us some edge rush in our four-down package. Linebacker Jon Bostic believes McCray and Powell have similar playing styles. However, he admits McCray may have an advantage on the former top-ranked recruit. Lerentees a little bit faster than [Powell], Bostic said. But really, they bring kind of the same thing to the table. Theyre both physical. for Powell at the Buck position. Increased depth and experience are a luxury the Gators did not enjoy in 2011, he said. On defense, we return 15 of our 16 top tacklers, so thats exciting, Muschamp said. ly, going into last season, we had less starters than anyone else in the SEC. That attributed a lot to our inconsistent play across the board. Quarterback Battle: Will Muschamp is no longer one of the new guys at this years SEC Media Days; that distinction belongs to interim Arkansas coach John L. Smith and everybody from Texas A&M and Missouri. season at Florida, he talked about last years depth issues at quarterback. Both Jeff Driskel and Jacoby Brissett took reps as true freshmen. was a situation where we inherited a roster with two quarterbacks on scholarship Tyler Murphy and John Brantley, Muschamp said. I said this a thousand times last year, if we can keep dence offensively. We struggled to move the ball consistently throughout the rest of the season. Even though he has yet to name a starting quarterback, Muschamp feels more comfortable about his options behind center this season. Driskel and Brissett are even going into fall camp, he said. Muschamp said. Theyll get equal reps. I would like to name a starter before the season, but Im not going to put a timetable on that. If we need to play both of them, thats what were going to do. Etc.: Muschamp said Andre Debose will be the Gators No. 1 kick returner followed by Mike Gillislee and Solomon Patton. The second-year coach has yet to decide among Debose, Marcus Roberson, Loucheiz Purifoy, Quinton Dunbar and Trey Burton as the punt returner. Redshirt junior cornerback Jeremy Brown underwent surgery Wednesday for a broken wrist. Muschamp said he will be cleared for full contact Sept. 1. Muschamp reacted to redshirt senior placekicker Caleb Sturgis selection as the only Gator on the Coaches All SEC First Team by sending the rest of his players a text that read: Congratulations to Caleb Sturgis.

The new buses will run on route 46, which goes from UF to downtown, said RTS Marketing and Communications Supervisor Chip Skinner. The electric and biodiesel comby 20 to 30 percent. The buses start on the electric battery and the diesel fuel kicks in at certain speeds. Skinner didnt know the exact speeds, but he said the system works like a hybrid car. The buses cost $600,000 each, Skinner said. Curtis Reynolds, UFs vice president for business affairs, said the Campus Development Agreement, which facilitates coordination between UF, Alachua County and Gainesville, funded the buses. During the unveiling, Reynolds said these buses strengthen the universitys partnership with RTS. RTS will be the second agency to use biodiesel hybrid buses. The County, Skinner said.

BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator Staff WriterRebecca Harris wanted to learn guitar, but she never got the chance. Rebecca, 20, died July 11 at Shands at UF from injuries after a hit-and-run accident on June 23 while crossing Southwest 16th Avenue on her bicycle. Since Rebecca was young she always gravitated to the loners. If someone was sitting by themselves, even in elementary school, she would sit with them to make sure they werent alone, said Shelly Harris, 44, Rebeccas stepmother. Rebecca lost her biological mother and gained Shelly as her stepmother when she was 7 years old. Rebecca met her she grabbed her hand and asked her to go on a merry-go-round. It made me feel accepted, immediately accepted, she said. She said she remembers her and her Becca boo, as she called her, being at the back of family bicycle trips chatting away the time. Shelly Harris said Rebecca always loved being outside. She taught herself to surf and loved to scuba dive and paddleboard. She was the only one we could get to weed out in the yard, she said. In Gainesville, she was in the process of deciding to become a journalism major with a history minor. Its been a very challenging but uplifting few weeks in Gainesville, said James Harris, 47, Rebeccas father. Our faith and trust in God have been revealed. He said the amount of people who have helped them throughout this process has been over whelming. A detective from the Gainesville Police Department came out several times to check in on the family. He was just being a human, James Harris said. Many of Rebeccas sisters in Theta Alpha, a Christian sorority, held a vigil at Shands at UF when she died. James Harris said many of the sorority sisters told stories about Rebecca, some of them he and his wife had never heard. When children go away to school it is a time for them to gain their independence and do what they do, he said. Many times parents dont know how that evolution is going. Rebeccas time at UF changed on Oct. 16, 2011. Kayla Fernandez, a 21-year-old early childhood education senior, said she chose her as her little in Theta Alpha based off of almost nothing. She said she chose her because she stood out in a crowd. Talkative, tall and cute. Fernandez said she and her little read the Bible together. Rebecca would regularly ask questions too deep for Fernandez to answer. She was just a very insightful person, she said. During their movie nights together, Rebecca would make brownie batter, which rarely made it to the oven. One night they were hanging out, and Rebecca decided she wanted to dye her hair. newly dyed hair she said, Eh, Ill get used to it. She rolled with anything, Fernandez said. ... she was one of the most amazing people I knew. Rebeccas death has touched more than just her big sister in her sorority. Stefani Broome, a 21-year-old religion senior and president of Theta Alpha, said when alumnae heard about Rebeccas death they group with support and love for the sister theyd never met. who was an active part of this sorority, she said. Broome said she was lighthearted and loved to meet people. She wasnt exclusive in any meaning of the word, she said. Broome remembers going to Rebeccas dorm in spring to teach her guitar. Thats when she really connected with her. She was the girl you saw on campus, in Turlington, everyone recognized her, Broome said. She was that girl. Contact Ben Brasch at bbrasch@ alligator.org.

New York Times turns a blind eye to the people of the Middle EastIn a July 9 article in the New York Times, Scott Shane reports that amid the chaos of the Arab Spring and the ascent of the Muslim Brotherhood to Egypts presidency, ships in the region. What those friendships will now entail, according to Shane, are newly brokered relations between the U.S. and hard-line Islamist regimes in the area. Shane makes the rather glib assertion that because the Obama administration, unlike the much-lamented Bush administration, is willing to negotiate diplomatically with not only the Muslim Brotherhood but also members of the terrorist organization Al Gamaa al-Islamiyya, it has ushered in what the State Department is calling a new day in a lot of countries across the Middle East and North Africa. In making this bold statement, Shane essentially cedes legitimacy to theocratic governance in a region not known for its sterling human rights record. Shane states that in viewing Islamist groups, Americans are responsible for recognizing distinctions between levels of tinguish between Islamists, who advocate a leading role for Islam in government, and violent jihadists, who espouse the same goal but advocate terrorism to achieve it, he said. By this measure, whippings, beheading, amputations, sexual segregation, religious discrimination, death for apostates and international hostility, even if only concealed for the rest of the non-Islamic world including the United States and its ally Israel are merely par for the course and ought not to be mentioned among friendsas long as it doesnt spill over into our interests. This is, in my opinion, the same type of willful ignorance of danger that Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain displayed in the face of a rising German threat before World War II, telling the British people repeatedly that no one, not even Hitler, could behave so rashly as to break the peace. It took a lion-like Winston Churchill to untangle the mess that Chamberlains sheepish behavior created. If there is one thing that can be said of Islamist groups, or any extremist group that claims a divine mandate, it is that they are sincere and acting in earnest. To put it another way, they mean business and should be respected and treated with caution. Anyone who believes his or her God commands him or her to secure devotion by any means is not likely to participate in a lot of give-and-take or diplomatic aplomb. That would entail a weakening of the divine mandate under which they operate. A soldier of God will not concede this at any cost. The Times can be counted upon to take its usual position: If its bad for America, they love it. This isnt much of a surprise to those of us who read it. What surprises me is the brazenness with which it also throws the interests of the ordinary people of the region under the bus as well. What was the No. 1 fear of those who didnt support the Muslim Brotherhood in the Egyptian elections? Religious oppression. Why is the Egyptian military counsel withholding power from the new government? The same reason. How many people are being killed across the region due to our seeming inability to distinguish friend from foe? Go ask the Iranians we abandoned in 2009 or the Syrians being massacred today. The Times was swift to laud this so-called Arab Spring as hope and change. I wonder who theyll endorse for president. Joshua Fonzi is a microbiology and cell science and entomology and nematology senior at UF. His column appears on Thursdays.Save the RacksThe Alligator needs your helpAfter two and half years of negotiation, UF has recently informed the Alligator that it will be removing 19 of our orange racks by Aug. 15, conveniently at a time when fewer people will be around to notice the changes. These 19 Alligator racks, which are in some of the most visible places on campus, will be replaced by large black modular university-owned racks, similar to the ones on Turlington Plaza. In order to use these new racks, the Alligator will have to sign a licensing agreement and pay a fee to UF to lease space for our papers. By removing our racks, we believe the UF administration is not acting in the best interest of the students. With UF now controlling our distribution on campus, what happens if we have coverage of the UF administration that they find unfavorable? Will this change our relationship with the university? The uncertainty of this new arrangement will create a chilling effect, hampering our ability to provide students with the most accurate and unbiased coverage. Students might also receive less important news and information in the future. The new modular racks could also have a negative effect on our readership. They are less visible than our orange racks and are less protective against inclement weather. Because we are independent, we rely on advertising funds to operate. If the new racks cause our circulation to decrease, we could potentially lose advertisers, meaning students will get fewer papers, fewer pages and less news. Retired UF economics professor David Denslow Jr. at the UF Bureau of Economic and Business Research has been analyzing data to see what effects this change would have on our circulation, but the administration has refused to let him finish his work before removing our bins. Today, we ask you, the Student Body, to help us Save The Racks. For more information, you can visit www.alligator.org/savetheracks. On the website, you can find and sign our Change.org petition, which we will be presenting to the administration. No other publication at UF does what we have been doing for the students of this school for 106 years. This is certainly bad for the 50 people who work at the Alligator each semester. Its even worse for the 50,000 UF students who rely on our ability to provide comprehensive, independent and unbiased news. Joshua Fonziopinions@alligator.org

Then, he comes from behind on the last event, the 4 x 400 relay, to win that race, again breaking the alltime UF record while also enabling the UF Mens Track team to win its Championship.

Send letters to the opinions editor at jhayes@alligator.org. Letters should not exceed 150 words, please. Letters to the EditorAs a passionate, self-proclaimed feminist, I have a problem with the recent uproar resulting from Daniel Toshs decision to respond, rather menacingly, to a female heckler at one of his shows. Dont get me wrong, I thought Toshs response was pretty lousy. Most of all, his response wasnt even funny. But does he deserve to be at the receiving end of an angry online mob that will not acknowledge that a bad joke is just that a bad joke? My point is not that rape should ever be taken lightly of course not. There seems, however, to be some discussion of how a rape joke should be delivered and the context within which it is appropriate. But who decides what kind of rape joke is ever appropriate? Comedians make fun of all sorts of intimate and important things: religion, family, sexual orientation, death, people with disabilities, etc. The list is endless and hardly ever appropriate. If we draw a line at one point, then shouldnt we police all other jokes just as harshly? Everyone has a right to take offense to any jokes made by Tosh or any other comic act. When I attended Toshs perfor mance at UF last spring, I found myself laughing at jokes that were often harsh and highly inappropriate, but isnt that what Tosh does? Shouldnt the offended female heckler have taken the context into consideration? After all, the woman was there to watch Tosh, and he isnt exactly known for making intellectual jokes. He is best known for his crude, immature and offensive brand of humor that takes little to no consideration for any aspect of society. When an audience member called for Tosh to strip during his performance at UF in April 2011, his response was, Im not going to do that. Its good to know whores get into UF. medians such as Tosh take, then heckling during such perfor mances is also a risk that audience members should take while being prepared for a candid and usually harsh response. I feel bad for the female heckler who was upset by Toshs response. She had every right to feel that rape should not be a topic joked about at a comedy club. In fact, I am sure most of us feel that same way about some topic or another. what is too much or too far should not be used to limit the creative work of acts such as Tosh or other comedians. Context in this regard is important. A politician or celebrity going on a harsh, offensive tirade is one thing, but you have to cut some slack for someone like Tosh, who rarely leaves anyone out from being a victim of his crude jokes. Tosh made a poor choice of words and apologized for it promptly and what appeared to be sincerely. Lets just accept his apology and move on to more serious isdoes not seem like one of them to me.

Somebody else made that happen. at a speech in Roanoke, Va., last week. This quote is making the rounds on conservative blogs and on social media websites. Progressives and supporters of the presidents re-election campaign might not understand what the big deal is. After all, the progressive ideology is perfectly in line with this quote. You, the individual, cannot make it. You, the individual, have no chance. You, the individual, must struggle unless you allow greater government intervention in your life. Progressives believe in government programs. These programs may have good intentions, but they rot the social structure. They corrode individual responsibility. They create dependence. government is created. With increased access to student loans, saving for college becomes less important to the individual. loosened work requirement for welfare, looking for a job becomes less important to the individual. With Social Security and Medicare, saving for retirement becomes less important to the individual. When individuals en masse decide to stop saving and instead rely on entitlement programs, government engages in massive spending. Conservatives believe the individual is the fundamental unit of American society. The individual, when free in enterprise and occupation, has the ability to pursue a life of security and prosperity. The president and his progressive supporters want you, the individual, to stop listening to conservatives. Conservatives will worry you with talk of massive deficits and a growing national debt. Conservatives will tell you that the government must live within its means. They will tell you that the answer to economic growth is a reformation of the nations grotesque tax code. They will tell you that providing certainty to investors and business owners is the best plan of action. Conservatives will warn of a coming debt crisis where the production of the nation will be sapped by the burden of government spending. In no distant time in the future, entitlements and interest on the national debt will swallow the federal budget. Conservatives, after all, believe in you. It is time for you to believe in yourself, despite what the president says. You, the individual, can use the talent and skill acquired through education and experience to pursue prosperity. ity or mediocrity. Do not be fooled by the enticing programs that progressives applaud. They are short-term solutions with grave consequences in the long term. For your prosperity and that of future Americans, consider standing with Mitt Romney. Consider standing with conservatism. Stand up for the rights of the individual. Stand for a limited government. Stand for enterprise and prosperity. Stand for a tax code that provides certainty. This November, both sides agree that the choice is divided along clear fundamental lines. Standing with the president is to stand for dependence. Standing with Mitt Romney is to stand up for yourself. Believe in yourself.

A UF business graduate, Frazer spent several years as a bond trader on Wall Street before returning to Gainesville and teaching math at F.W. Buchholz High School. He might be able to boast more about the second job. During his tenure at Buchholz, which began in January 1997, Frazer led the Buchholz math team to eight straight state championships and six straight national championships in the math honors society Mu Alpha Theta. Frazer, 53, began taking his students to competitions in 1998. They didnt go well. Although Frazer became discouraged, his students enthusiasm motivated him. I decided we were going to be winners, or I wasnt going to do it, Frazer said. Winning the Mu Alpha Theta National Convention on July 13 marked the sixth straight national championship team Frazer has coached. Although Frazer is competitive, he is especially excited to see his students grow personally. John Phillpot, an 18-year-old recent Buchholz graduate, said the team developed his strong work ethic. Id be such a slacker without the team, he said. Phillpot, who is attending Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, Calif., competed in eighth grade and throughout high school. Preparation is what sets the Buchholz team apart, Phillpot said. Team members prepare for tournaments with two to three hours of nightly studying, and they took summer, he said. Ziwei Lu, teacher and math coach, said great students make the team what it is. There is no [other] school that is truly competitive, Lu said. This year, the Buchholz math team will be focusing on different competitions, including some that help determine the U.S. team for the International Mathematic Olympiad. Regardless of how those competitions turn out, Fraser and his students have experienced a lot of success.

MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator Contributing WriterEach year, enough Americans become infected with HIV to match the UF student population. The number of those people who are unaware theyve contracted the C. OConnell Center to capacity. But the Food and Drug Administration plans to reduce this years statistics. On Monday, it approved HIV infection. Gilead Sciences once-a-day pill Truvada will now be available to uninfected individuals who may engage in sexual activity with HIVinfected partners. It keeps the virus from replicating in the body, said FDA spokeswoman Stephanie Yao. In 2004, the FDA approved the drug for the treatment of HIV-infected adults and children 12 years or older. But two large, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials revealed Truvadas potential for preventing contraction of the AIDS precursor, Yao said. One study found that the drug reduced the risk of HIV infection by 42 percent in gay and bisexual men who participated in high risk behavior. Another study focusing on heterosexual couples in which one partner had HIV showed Truvada reduced the risk of infection in the other partner by 75 percent. Currently, the pill is only available as a preventative measure for adults and must be prescribed by a doctor. Truvada is expected to cost at least $13,900 a year for treatment in the U.S., according to Gilead Sciences. The most common side effects reported with Truvada included diarrhea, nausea, abdominal pain, headache and weight loss. Uncommon side effects can include kidney problems or bone toxicity. The drug is to be used in combination with safe sex practices, risk reduction counseling and regular HIV testing, according to a statement from the FDA.FDA approves once-a-day pill to reduce risk of HIV infectionEDUCa A TIONUF alumnus continues legacy of success at Buchholz High CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterDetectives from the Alachua Counman on Tuesday who was connected to a Feb. 24 bank robbery in Gainesville.

BLOG AND FACEBOOK PAGE INDIE GAINESVILLE HAS ABOUT 6,000 PAGE VIEWS A DAY JESSICA KEGUAvenue WriterBy the age of 10, Whitney Mutch and her younger sister made a pact to always keep their own last name, even through marriage. Twenty-two years later, that pact is still intact and her passion for independence has now formed a community. Mutch, a Gainesville native, created the blog Indie Gainesville last August as a way to organize a collective voice for the independent local businesses in Gainesville. As the wife of a local business owner, Mutch saw the issues that many local businesses were facing such as parking in the downtown area and felt they needed to be faced together. Indie Gainesville now has nearly 60 local businesses as members, more than 2,300 friends on Facebook and according to Mutch, who handles everything online herself, averages 6,000 to 7,000 blog views per day. While its original purpose was simply to bring together local businesses and promote awareness, its function has evolved further to include informing the community about local art and music events and acting as a liaison between local government and its local business owners. Mutch said one of its most successful endeavors to date was the Think Local Civic Forum in January, which they co-sponsored, and where all but one of the candidates for city commission was in attendance. More recently, Indie Gainesville and its members were invited to an informational meeting at the Depot Building where local businesses, entrepreneurs and restaurateurs were given an opportunity to see the space before it is formally offered to the public for tenancy. The Facebook page has also become a space for residents and businesses to ask ucts, share events and offer support. Chad Paris, co-owner of Parisleaf Printing and Design, a company that strives to help businesses become carbon neutral by planting more trees than they consume, is a member of Indie Gainesville. For Paris, the most important and helpful function of Indie Gainesville is its online presence. Indie Gainesville is extremely proactive online and has helped to increase our online visibility to like-minded individuals, Paris said. Parisleaf was named the 2011 business of the year for its commitment to the environment by the Gainesville Chamber of Commerce. Mutch said right now she is working on a back-to-school guide to Gainesville for newcomers and incoming freshmen that will be posted on the blog and possibly printed for distribution. It will include a guide to parking downtown as well as plenty of information about living and eating local. I used to go to the farmers market all the time anyway but now I have to in order to see who is new. Mutch said. During her childhood, Mutch remembers her parents always promoted buying local but according to her, Theyre not hippies. I guess thats one of the barriers Im trying to break down, Mutch said, the idea that buying local is only a hippie thing to do. Youre investing in your community, and you get back what you put in.Courtesy of Indie Gainesville The blog was created just under a year ago.

As soon as I saw Water Buffalo Burger my inner cro-magnon club-wielding caveman needed it. Now. And then there it was. A massive meaty amoeba of blanketed with melted white cheddar cheese. The burger was wedged between homemade pickled cucumbers and onions, rosy red tomatoes and raw red onions. Beside the lean buffalo burger were perfectly browned and salted potato wedges with a sprinkle of parsley. The Blackened Shrimp Platter is served with ame base as the onion rings dipping sauce, potato wedges, blackened shrimp and fresh slices of avocado and tomato. The shrimp was seasoned with paprika and lots of black pepper. Coleslaw is an art in the south, and the coleslaw and Civilization strikes a balance of sweet and tart. It takes attention to detail to bring a meal together. Lunch and dinner at Civilization are totally different meals. Civilization opened in 2009 SAMANTHA SOLUMAvenue WriterMost weekends Jeff Abalos, a 20-year-old political science senior would live off of two boxes of rice from Steamers. But, the restaurant, located on 1618 NW First Ave., closed its doors before May 1, 2011 and remained vacant until two weeks ago. Owner of Gator Spirit Food Store & Coin Laundry, 58-year-old, Nailesh Patel, believes he has what it takes to make this spin on fast food last in the same location. Steamers was founded in 1982 and bought by the previous owner around eight years ago, who also owned Tasty Buddha. Now the one-room restaurant holds the name Gator Spirit Food Store & Coin Laundry and still shares the building with the convenience store and Laundromat, tucked away behind the Midtown bar district, giving it the appeal of a favorite local dive. The chef, Cedrik Austin, uses his 12 years of cooking experience to whip up meals in large, blackened woks only feet away from the bench where customers sit and inhale the rich smell of Indian spices in anticipation. Austin adds his made-fromscratch hot sauce upon request amongst the basmati rice, choice of meat and variety of fresh vegetables. Patel said summer business is slow in Gainesville, but the restaurant has had positive feedback already developed repeat customers. Abalos has already been back twice. Although the restaurant is somewhat hidden, Patel doesnt worry about advertising because he believes his customers opinions are more valid than writing on a piece of paper. Gator Spirit Food Store & Coin Laundry has developed a solid customer base for nearly 25 years and Patel trusts word-of-mouth will continue to bring business to the restaurant. The menu is similar to Steamers with some additional items like samosas and deserts and with slightly higher prices but the same large portions. Patel said he keeps his prices as low as possible because he knows that college students are his main customers and that they barely have any money. We want to provide a fresh and healthy option, he said, that is still cheap and fast. 12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 19, 2012 David Carr / Alligator StaffGator Spirit Food opened two weeks ago. The cuisine will feature fresh ingrediants and authentic Indian spices. It is located on Northwest First Avenue behind the Florida Book Store. Gator Spirit Food is now open in old Steamers location RACHEL GODFREYAvenue WriterWithin their hexagonal Hippodrome hive, swarms of busily buzzing interns, actors and stagehands are beckoned by their queen bee. Mary Hausch sits upon her perch, the producing directors chair. The humming crowd silences stage. The curtain draws open. Its here. Its show time. The Hippodrome State Theatre will celebrate its 40th birthday this season. Founded in 1972 by six artists including Hausch, the Hippotown Gainesville at 25 SE Second Place. zation complete with a 266-seat theater and 80-seat cinema. Adam Jalali, marketing associate for the Hippodrome, said the theater missing. We had humble beginnings, starting out in a hollowed out 7-Eleven type of place, and weve grown from there, he said. We provided Gainesville with the cultural hub that it needed. Jalali said despite movies and television, nothing compares with watching live theater. Youre seeing this production unfold and youre seeing these human beings absorb themselves in a role, and thats something thats just irreplaceable, he said. Theres something so much more captivating about live theater than any other medium. Jalali said that the theater manages to stay successful due to the types of shows it produces. Our shows are modern and relevant, he said. We stick around because people just cant get enough of it. Its a completely different experience we sell at the Hippodrome and I think well be around for a while. Jalali said that from the moment a show closes, the Hippodrome staff immediately starts working on the next production. This season will be the theaters thank-you letter to its patrons by delivering plays the audience has been demanding, Jalali said. The theater will produce the Broadway shows Other Desert Cities, Venus in Fur and Avenue Q, along with A Christmas Carol and Robin Hood. The Hippodrome has been producing A Christmas Carol for 34 years, he said. This is our most ambitious season Theres something for everyone and we went out of our way to get these great shows that you wouldnt see in Gainesville unless we had them. showing of Other Desert Cities on Aug. 29. Jalali said he usually gets emotionally attached to each production. You become a theater person working here, and you see the process behind these shows and how much work goes into it, he said. You get into the show with your heart and soul and it becomes you. When the show does well, it makes you feel that much better cause youre proud of your work. Rocky Draud, managing director of the Hippodrome, said the theater has grown to become the cultural heart and soul of Gainesville. The Hipp inspires and nurtures artists through internships, workshops, and festivals and contributes to the well being and the economy of our community, he said. For at least 340 days each year the lights are on and an event a play, movie, civic forum, or community meeting occurs at the Hipp. Draud said that theater is an essential experience to the growth and enjoyment of life. Working here has been a daily reminder of how a small group of people working as a team with a common goal can create miracles, he said.The Hippodrome celebrates 40 years REVIEW from page 9 We want to provide a fresh and healthy option that is still cheap and fast.Nailesh PatelOwner of Gator Spirit Food Store & Coin Laundry dining

The Gators will have one fewer tight end going into fall camp. Sophomore A.C. Leonard, who was arrested on a domestic battery charge  in February, made the decision to transfer after talking with coach Will Muschamp on Tuesday. It was a mutual decision, Muschamp said. Leonard has not decided where he will transfer. The tight end played in nine games last season and recorded eight catches for 99 yards. Sometimes it doesnt work out, and he needed to move on, Muschamp said. According to the February ar rest report, Leonard pushed his girlfriend to the ground, pulled her hair and dragged her out of the apartment by her feet. He then locked her out of the room. I wish he wouldnt have left, senior linebacker Jon Bostic said. I dont have all the details to what went on with that, but I just wish him the best in wherever he decides to go. Somebody is getting a good player. Florida returns Jordan Reed as the starting tight end in 2012. Reed caught 28 passes for 307 yards and two scores last season. Omarius Hines will also see time at tight end position this season; however most of his time As a junior, Hines caught seven passes for 106 yards. We have the two freshman coming in were excited about, Muschamp said. guys at the position. Thats what we need. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org and Corey McCall at cmccall@alligator.org. JOE MORGANAlligator Staff WriterHOOVER, Ala. While the Gators nior Mike Gillislee gives them some cer tainty at the running back position. In fact, Gillislee has the 2012 season planned down to the box scores. My goal is to get 1,500 yards and 24 touchdowns, he said at the Southeastern Conference Media Days on Wednesday. I havent set a goal for receiving yet. Gillislee averaged 5.9 yards per carry in 2011. Assuming he matches his yards-percarry average from last season, Gillislee will need more than the 56 carries he accrued as a junior to reach his goal 199 more attempts, to be exact. As the Gators primary running back heading into the 2012 campaign, Gillislee will likely receive the necessary reps. Slated behind Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps on the depth chart last season, Gillislee received just 12 percent of UFs carries in 2011. [Coach Muschamp told me he regretted it, but I dont really see it as a regret because thats in the past, Gillislee said. Now is my opportunity, and I will keep it that way. However, even with increased playing time, reaching his lofty goals will be a challenge. The numbers Gillislee is aiming to accomplish would earn him a place in Florida record books. Rushing for 24 touchdowns in 2012 would move Gillislee ahead of Tim Tebow, who scored 23 in 2007, as the best singleseason mark in UF history. Emmitt Smith holds the record for running back with 14 touchdowns on the ground during the 1989 season. If Gillislee hits the 1,500-yard mark, he would be 99 yards short of Smiths single-season rushing record, which the Pro Football Hall of Fame member also set during his junior campaign in 1989. Hes ready to tote the load, redshirt senior linebacker Lerentee McCray said. Hes ready to be that premier back everybody wants him to be. He said he can get 1,500 yards. I think he will get it if he wants it bad enough.

20, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 19, 2012 Will Muschamp said. Hes not changing direction or taking on blocks right now.  As many of you know with an ACL situation, that always takes time. Hell play for us this year.  When that will be, I dont know yet. Until Powell returns to the lineup, McCray will regularly play the Buck position as a hybrid linebacker/defensive end. McCray recorded 24 tackles (7.5 TFL) in nine games last season. McCray will play Buck in the subpackage, and Powells injury will lead to increased reps in the regular package. Lerentee was a guy that was banged up a little bit last year, Muschamp said. I held him, he probably could have gone.  (He) can play both outside linebacker positions, can give us some edge rush in our four-down package. Linebacker Jon Bostic believes McCray and Powell have similar playing styles. However, he admits McCray may have an advantage on the former top--ranked recruit. Lerentees a little bit faster than [Powell], Bostic said. But really, they bring kind of the same thing to the table. Theyre both physical. for Powell at the Buck position. Increased depth and experience are a luxury the Gators did not enjoy in 2011, he said. On defense, we return 15 of our 16 top tacklers, so thats exciting, Muschamp said.   ly, going into last season, we had less starters than anyone else in the SEC.  That attributed a lot to our inconsistent play across the board. Quarterback Battle: Will Muschamp is no longer one of the new guys at this years SEC Media Days; that distinction belongs to interim Arkansas coach John L. Smith and everybody from Texas A&M and Missouri. season at Florida, he talked about last years depth issues at quarterback. Both Jeff Driskel and Jacoby Brissett took reps as true freshmen. was a situation where we inherited a roster with two quarterbacks on scholarship Tyler Murphy and John Brantley, Muschamp said. I said this a thousand times last year, if we can keep   dence offensively.  We struggled to move the ball consistently throughout the rest of the season. Even though he has yet to name a starting quarterback, Muschamp feels more comfortable about his options behind center this season. Driskel and Brissett are even going into fall camp, he said. Muschamp said. Theyll get equal reps.  I would like to name a starter before the season, but Im not going to put a timetable on that.  If we need to play both of them, thats what were going to do. Etc.: Muschamp said Andre Debose will be the Gators No. 1 kick returner followed by Mike Gillislee and Solomon Patton. The second--year coach has yet to decide among Debose, Marcus Roberson, Loucheiz Purifoy, Quinton Dunbar and Trey Burton as the punt returner. Redshirt junior cornerback Jeremy Brown underwent surgery Wednesday for a broken wrist. Muschamp said he will be cleared for full contact Sept. 1. Muschamp reacted to redshirt senior placekicker Caleb Sturgis selection as the only Gator on the Coaches AllSEC First Team by sending the rest of his players a text that read: Congratulations to Caleb Sturgis. The SEC coaches must not think much of the rest of you guys.
