Bryan Dubno, the creator of UFmobile, gust 2009. Since then, it has garnered a user base of about 34,000 people. Following its release, UFmobile was used about two million times, said the 23-year-old student. With so many people using the app, shutting it down may come as a surprise. Costs are piling up, Dubno said. Its just getting to the point where I cant really afford to keep supporting it especially since the app is free. endorsed or promoted by UF. Dubno said he had some trouble with the trademark, because the apps title includes the university name. However, UF spokesman Steve Orlando said the university had nothing to do with the app. The app featured a campus map students could sync with their schedules, a UF directory, RTS information, an event calendar, a UF news feed, a live camera feed from the Southwest Recreation Center and a chat function that allowed students to interact with the UF community. Keep an eye out, Dubno said. Im keep it alive. Hopefully, itll return in some form.UFmobile developer shuts down popular iPhone app ALEXA VOLLANDConstruction is underway on Heavener Hall, the new addition to the Warrington College of Business Administration. The addition will be north of Bryan Hall, near the corner of Southwest 13th Street and University Avenue, and the college expects to break ground in April for undergraduate classrooms. The construction and furniture move-in should be completed in Summer 2014, Howie Ferguson, the project manager, wrote in an email. But 21-year-old Elise Van Wie isnt thrilled with the new addition. Van Wie, a UF forest resources and conservation junior, is concerned about the number of trees that will have to be cut down for the new building. After she looked at an online map of the area, she said, she thinks about 100 trees will have to be cut down. Having two large buildings in that visible corner of campus will change the character of that area, she said. I dont know for better or for worse, but I would like to see the trees stay. Van Wie said she plans to write a letter to UF President Bernie Machen to ask him to consider the environmental costs and impacts. Van Wie said she is alone in trying to gain awareness about the trees for now. something like this, she said. Learning through my classes and what my professors are talking about, seeing something like this makes me want to apply what Im learning. Ferguson said the exact quantity of trees that will have to be cut down is still being determined.

KATHRYN VARNThe abandoned Gainesville Police Department headquarters was demolished this morning as the struction process. The new facility will combine one campus and provide more space for day-to-day operations, as said. It will be built in the parking lot of the old headquarters, 721 NW Sixth St. Since 2010, Gainesville Police scattered throughout the city after the department left the old building because of spacing and age issues, Tobias said. Gainesville Police originally planned to renovate the former headquarters, he said. However, due to structural issues, planners decided to demolish the building and construct a new one because it would save money. You want to talk about people being excited about a building being knocked down, he said. Its real progress that we can see.

He said three underground utilities have to run outside the building. Some trees will have to be removed anyway because they are in poor health. UF Spokeswoman Janine Sikes said the location has been part of the university master plan as the future building site since 2005. With about 4,000 students in the program, Sikes said the college needs space to focus on the undergraduate experience. As for the trees, Sikes said the mitigation plans include replenishing the campus with twice as many trees than will be cut down. Van Wie said replenishing trees is a step in the right direction, but she wasnt sure if it outweighs the cost of removing the larger, historic ones. They are trying to take measures that will hopefully make up for it in the long run, she said. Id say I respect them for that, and I think that its a noble effort. In addition, Van Wie is concerned with keeping the natural integrity and original aesthetic intact. You are going to walk around campus and see trees, but for how long? When do you stop building? Van Wie said. With our campus focusing on sustainability, preserving trees could be a cool step in that direction. However, Ferguson said the buildings exterior will be very traditional, keeping with the UF gothic style, while still being energyThe new building will strive for a Gold or Platinum ings. Stopping the construction isnt something that would happen, Van Wie said. But I think its important to get a voice out there to show there are people who care.

The new, estimated 49,000-square-foot facility will include a two-story operations building, according to the plans. It will also include a training space, Tobias said. Administrative staff in the current building will move into the new facility, Tobias said. He said he didnt know which department divisions will occupy the current administrative building on Northwest Eighth Street. The evidence storage facility will remain where it is. The $10.9 million project is slated to take about a year, Tobias said. The budget is broken into four parts: $3.9 million from the initial city renovation pledge, $1.5 $2 million from a bond and $3.5 million from city reserves. GPD Chief Tony Jones said the the project. The entire GPD staff has been waiting for this demolition to start, he said. Its an amazing morale boost for the troops to see some measurable movement in the project.

Rick Scott announced Tuesday that 11 state colleges have accepted a four-year, $10,000 tuition plan, which brings the total to 23 schools. With the announcement, every state school that offers a bachelors degree in the Florida College System has committed to Scotts higher education affordability plan. He formed the plan to create more jobs and offer affordable higher education for state residents. schools to support the plan. The college announced its participation shortly after Scott announced the initiative in November. Jackson Sasser, SFC president, said he was enthusiastic about the program. We immediately endorsed it because its a symbol of Santa Fes desire to provide access to students, he said. Sasser said SFCs tuition ranges from about $11,000 to about $13,000 for the six bachelors degrees the college offers. As part of the $10,000 plan, Sasser said the college will cut the cost of attendance by offering more online classes, recruiting more students with AP and dual-enrollment credits and block tuition. Sasser said that, with careful planning $10,000 goal is a possibility for SFC. When you can get alignment bea good deal, he said. Gov. Scotts tuition plan gets additional collegiate support CHAD FURSTAlligator Contributing WriterSweet-toothed Gainesville residents have had frozen yogurt, ice cream and gelato to choose from. But a new restaurant will give them a fourth option to settle their cravings. SweetBerries Eatery & Frozen Custard, a family-owned restaurant that specializes in frozen custards and homemade foods, will have its grand opening Friday. The restaurant, 505 NW 13th St., is owned and managed by sisters Jane Osmond and Janice Easton. Before Osmond followed her passion for food, she was a respiratory therapist for about 15 years. She left her job to attend culinary school. SweetBerries was established 15 years ago by Osmond and Eastons family. The Gainesville location will be the third restaurant in the state. The restaurant replaces Books Inc. and Book Lovers Cafe. The owners retired in January 2012, according to Alligator archives. Although Osmond stressed the family aspect of SweetBer ries, she said the real story is the restaurants food, which is homemade and comes from years of family recipes. Were not a chain, she said. We pride ourselves on quality, and we feel like we have a really good product. SweetBerries offers sandwiches, salads and soups along with frozen custards. One of the restaurants signature desserts is its concretes, which are frozen custards blended with fruits, nuts and other toppings. Osmond said she looks for ward to doing business with UF students because her restaurant is close to campus. However, Osmond said she faces the challenge of having ingredients delivered to Gainesville from major food distribution companies in Orlando and Tampa. She added that running the restaurant will be a new experience for her and Easton. The biggest challenge is getting over our learning curve, Osmond said. As for people who may be unsure about the new restaurant, Osmond said once they give it a try, they will be convinced.

Jillette John son and UF student Rachel Rose joined him as opening acts. STEVEN KATONAAvenue Contributing WriterStudents in the College of Fine Arts at UF may not be able to create cat art in class, but that didnt stop them from doing it outside the classroom. Just Cats is exactly what it sounds like. It is an art show that nine art students created to display anything and everything cat-related, an opportunity to do something fun and connect with other people who share common interests. This is the opposite of what we would ever do in our classes, said Dounia Bendris, a 20-year-old UF art junior. Its basically a gallery reception with different cat art from different art majors. Bendris said she hopes the concept and theme of the show will encourage students to come and view art, and because it is Just Cats, it will create a more inviting atmosphere. If that isnt enough, maybe people will be attracted with the free food, she said. The show is being held in association with the Reitz Union Board Entertainment and can be viewed on Union in the gallery. The artwork will be on display from Thursday through of the show is during the gallery reception from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Feb. 7. At the reception, there will be food and drinks, and people will have the opportunity to view different mediums of cat art and talk to the students who created them. A lot of our art will be conceptual in some way, and its such an open topic that relates to our culture. Our work is about the connection between cats and the Inter net and how we relate to that and how it society, said Zac Thompson, a 20-yearold UF art junior, who is one of the artists featured in the show. He and eight others are creating works of art such as paintings, drawings, mixed media, photographs and sculptures to put on display in the gallery, some of which will be available for purchase the night of the reception. Were going to have a contact list, so if you see anything that you want, you can contact the artist directly Devin Kelly, a 20-year-old UF graphic design junior, who is also the director of the gallery. Both the original pieces as well as prints will be available for purchase.

STEVEN KATONAAvenue Contributing WriterThe fog-kissed air vibrated as the bass from the subwoofers melted into atmosphere does every Saturday night at Spannk. People lined up outside the door shoulder-to-shoulder take part in an underground dance movement and party Neon Ligerstyle. The weekend social event is becoming more popular with each year, and this Sathind the booth. Neon Liger will also relaunch its website, www.neonliger.com, with added features and online shopping options. Neon Liger continues to set the bar for Gainesville nightlife, and for Vijay Seixas, founder of Neon Liger and part-owner of Spannk, its all about the music. You wont hear what we play here anywhere else. We stick to the more under ground music because we like to introduce new stuff, Seixas said. Five years ago, there was no other electronic music nights going on, so we were doing it and had some under ground following, and now, it has become a lot more popular. Neon Ligers MC, Will Newton, a UF alumnus, said, Its the best dance party that has ever existed. People come here to be themselves, and everyone has a really good time. The best dance music in Gainesville is right here, right now. There are 16 18-inch subwoofers that hit so hard the air itself vibrates. The sound waves tickle the inside of your chest as they pass through space. Rodrigo Lizarraga, the graphic and web designer for Neon Liger, is not satin town besides Saturday nights at Spannk. He is the person responsible for creating the revamped website, which will unleash Saturday. The last Neon Liger website I designed was two years ago. The new website will be a lot more full-featured. One of the biggest additions is the merchandise store. And the website itself is going to have a brand-new design. Its going to be a much larger website to accommodate the growing Neon Liger brand, Lizarraga said. Seixas said the name Neon Liger was Our friend had a cat that he called Liger. We were looking up party names when we called Neon Pony, so we just called it Neon Liger, he said. 10 p.m., anyone 21 and up gets free beer, and if you RSVP on Facebook, there is no cover charge. After 11 p.m., there is a $5 cover.After 5 years of partying, Neon Liger still rages on BROCK SENGAvenue WriterMost thought the boy band craze would die out with dial-up Internet, Furbys and Rugrats in the s. But as long as there are girls to scream over dancing boys, the genre will always live on, said Michael DesRosiers, a 22-yearold UF biochemistry senior. With the 2012 boy band resur gence, groups like One Direction and The Wanted helped the craze experience a revival. Now, in 2013, iconic boy band New Kids On The Block has announced its tour with two other male-singing-and-dancing groups: Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees. The summer tour, called The Package Tour, will follow the release of New Kids On The Blocks new album,10, set to release April 2. DesRosiers said 90s bands, at their age, shouldnt be on tour. The appeal of boy bands rests on the band members being boys, capable of stir ring up the hormones of pre-teen girls, he said. When older men try to do the same thing, thats a little strange. Out of the three bands touring, Boyz II Men has still managed to stay around, with steady releases over the years, including a new CD released in 2011. Justin Robinson, a 21-year-old UF recreation tourism and event management junior, said its because Boyz II Men is timeless. They arent catchy little theme songs, he said. They have substance to them almost like a contemporary Temptations. He said he thinks Boyz II Men going back on tour is a good idea but wouldnt go see them live unless he was with a girl. Evvy Struzynski, a 21-year-old UF public relations senior, said as a s child, she was excited to hear about the tour. I wish it were Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC instead, she said. But Ill take our generations boy bands over The Wanted any day.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 31, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 21-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr. com/ask Ariel Barnes Dear Friend, It is completely within your rights to ask for a ride home. Hopefully you gave an equal or greater amount of pleasuring to your onenight-stand buddy. If this person is a jerk and lives too far away, ask a friend to pick you up. Avoid the bus on your walk-of-shame endeavor. I guarantee it will be one of the lowpoints of your life, but if you must, maybe youll get lucky and someone will give you the slow clap. Dear Mediocre Advice, What is the morning-after protocol for sleeping over at a one-night-stands place if I didnt drive? Dear Mediocre Advice, Why are freshmen so dumb? Were we that dumb? I hope not. Dear Friend, nitely that dumb once. Its a good thing if you can admit it. Freshmen have yet to metaphorically s--t their pants about entering the real world. Freshman and sophomore years are spent carelessly. Junior year is a little bit of a sweat with deciding what to do, but no worries because there is still time to f--k around. Senior year is a whole world of denial, espeyear is in the horizon. Basically, the amount of time in college is like running from the giant boulder in Indiana Jones, but in this version you actually die. You think you have time to run away, and for a short while you do, but in the end the boulder catches up to you. Then you end up moving back in with your parents.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 31, 2013 BAKR SALIQAvenue WriterIf disaster hit Gainesville, what would happen? Written by Tom Sims and illustrated by Cincinnati K., the short story series Elotchaway explores life in a future Gainesville after a calamity has made the luxuries we have grown accustomed to useless. Its not about a disaster, its about what happens after, said Jim Chapin, 25, the editor of the Elotchaway series. The story is on its fourth issue and is gaining local popularity due to its familiar setting. Scenes in the book take place on a warped Bo Diddley Community Plaza and a Gainesville Regional Utilities-like plant held together with wire and glue. Elotchaway can be ordered online at www.elotchawaystories. com and in locally owned businesses, such as The Midnight Caf and Bar, 223 S. Main St.; The Bull, 18 SW First Ave.; and inside Karma Cream, 1025 W. University Ave. The lack of locally owned bookstores in Gainesville has driven cal cafes. Chapin said the theme in Elotchaway of lacking conventional means has lined up well with the way the story is being distributed. The story is about a failure of infrastructure and having to make your own alternatives, Chapin said.Short story series depicts Gainesville scenes ALYSSA HOLCOMBAvenue WriterIn a night devoted to performance alone, the Screen Actors Guild Awards wasted no time in honoring the years top contenders. What makes the SAG Awards so unique (and one of my favorite ceremonies) is that the actors vote for their fellow actors, making the year in cinema come full circle between their peers. One of the best parts of the night comes at the beginning with the I Am An Actor monologues. Every year, select actors are chosen to face the camera and give a short speech, sometimes laughable and sometimes moving, about what made them become an actor. This years chosen performers included Jane Krakowski from 30 Rock, Darren Criss from Glee, Helen Hunt from The Sessions and the legendary Hal Holbrook. Even better? There were some (gasp!) upsets in prominent categories. The BBC hit Downton Abbey took the statue for Outstanding Perfor mance for an Ensemble in a Drama Series, besting the likes of Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire. Silver Linings Playbook star Jennifer Lawrence bested Jessica Chastain in Zero Dark Thirty for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role; tripping her way up to the stage, she sode of MTVs My Super Sweet Sixteen. Some categories went to the front runners set by the Golden Globes, including Anne Hathaway in Les Miserables for Outstanding Per formance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role and Daniel Day-Lewis in Lincoln nabbing the Lead Actor win. TV wins included Female Actor in a Drama Series Claire Danes for Homeland and the cast of Modern Family for Ensemble in a Comedy Series. The legendary Dick Van Dyke received a lifetime achievement award. Van Dykes undeniably grateful demeanor made for a sweet highlight. Capping the night off with the Outstanding Per formance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award was Argo, which has been notably snubbed this seaMany of the speeches of the night were more heartfelt and meaningful than the rest because it was actors thanking actors, the people they work with and the people whove inspired them.

14, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 31, 2013 WOMENS TENNISS ROBERT JUDINAlligator WriterThe Florida womens tennis team won its 24th consecutive dual match in a 7-0 victory against UCF on Wednesday afternoon at Linder Stadium. But the Gators win got off to a rocky start. Junior Olivia Janowicz and freshman Danielle Collins took on the Knights Genevieve Lorbergs and Josephine Haraldson on Court 1 in doubles. Lorbergs and Haraldson quickly took a 5-2 lead. An array of drop shots and returns into the net proved costly for Janowicz and Collins. On one point, Collins lost her balance, fell and tried to snag the ball with her left hand. The errors proved too much for UF to overcome as Haraldson and Lorbergs sealed an 8-3 victory. However, Florida overcame Janowicz and Collins defeat, taking two of three matches to claim the doubles point. It was a difwith the wind, coach Roland Thornqvist said in a release. We struggled a little bit in doubles at out that it wasnt going to be a per fect day to play, then we settled down. In singles play, the Gators put the Knights away. the most competitive match, exchanging the lead back and forth. Oyen ultimately prevailed, taking win the second 6-3. Collins and Janowicz both got revenge for their doubles defeat but in different fashions. Collins defeated Haraldson in straight sets 6-0, 6-0. Janowicz battled back from a 3-1 putting Caroline Eberhart away 6-2 in the second set. After jumping out to an early lead, Morgan controlled the pace of her match, dropping only one game in each set of her victory against Caroline Hitimana trailed at the start of each set of her singles match against Clare Mendell.

After his career at UF, Rosario will have the option of playing in Puerto Rico prior to the NBA Draft on June 27.Beal a Rising StarFormer Gator and current Washington Wizards guard Brad Beal was selected to participate in the Rising Stars Challenge during NBA All-Star Weekend. LANDON WATNICK Alligator Writer Florida has smothered its Southeastern Conference opponents this season, but delivered its biggest trouncing against South Carolina. The No. 4 Gators (17-2, 7-0 SEC) held the Gamecocks to 31.1 percent shooting and forced 17 turnovers en route to a 75-36 victory on Wednesday night in the OConnell Center. The 39-point win is UFs largest margin of victory in SEC play. South Carolinas 36 points are the secondfewest Florida has allowed this season. Every time they tried to run a play, we kind of beat them to the step, senior guard Kenny Boynton said. We beat them to a spot, and that kind of messed up their plays. They didnt know what to do. The Gators held the Gamecocks (12-8, 2-5 SEC) to 3-of-21 shooting press shook South Carolina early, committing nine turnovers in the 22 points off of turnovers. We did a good job of when the ball came inbounds waiting and being patient, coach Billy Donovan said. When the ball probably got right above the top-of-the-key area, we were able to kind of trap, rotate and take away the next available pass. Mike Rosario and Boynton each bined 11-of-22 shooting. Boynton tallied a season-best seven assists. Freshman guard Michael Frazier II added 12 points, burying 4 of his 6 three-point attempts. After shooting 2 of 6 from the Gators went on a 16-4 run to increase their advantage to 21-4 with Floridas most dynamic defensive play came from junior center Patric Young with 1:45 remaining Eric Smith drove into the lane for a layup attempt, Young swatted the ball off the backboard. Youngs rejection led to a fastbreak dunk by Rosario on the other end. The redshirt senior was called for a technical foul after the play for hanging on the rim. If I were to let go at that moment, I would have slipped and hurt myself, Rosario said. The ref told me on the second swing, he had to give me a technical foul. I was like, OK. Just know that I have [Donovan] on my butt now.

Gators dominate Gamecocks in lopsided 75-36 victory PHILLIP HEILMAN Alligator Staff Writer on Thursday, Ole Miss guard Diara goal to extend the Rebels lead against the Gators to 50-33. Moores three was the ninth by Ole Miss in the opening half. The Rebels shot 11 of 16 from behind the arc in an Conference win of the season. After the game, UF coach Amanda Butler expressed her displeasure with Florida catching Ole Miss on perhaps its best shooting night of the year. The Rebels had not shot better than 50 percent from three-point range prior to shooting 68.8 percent against the Gators. Clearly, we didnt have everybody on their team pegged as a shooter, Butler said. But it didnt really matter who was behind the three-point line tonight. Everything they put up fell. Ole Miss success continued a trend: UFs three-point defense has been dismal this season. Florida has allowed opponents to shoot 32.3 percent from behind the arc this year, which is 12th in the conference and 256th in the nation. In SEC play, opponents are shooting 38.1 percent from three-point range, leaving Floridas defense at 13th in the conference. It certainly has been a weakness struggled with awareness not just who the hot shooter is, but where is she. Through seven conference games, opponents have made 45 of 118 tries against the Gators. Butler has pointed to Floridas failure to guard the threepoint line as the central factor in its poor UF struggles defending arcJURNY DUTY On Fridays and Saturdays, Kevin OSullivan doesnt have much to worry about. The Florida coach has two established starting pitchers in juniors Jonathon Crawford and Karsten Whitson. Following a promising freshman season, Whitson tailed off in his sophomore campaign. After being hampered by a lingering groin injury in the fall of 2011, he was behind the curve from the get-go in 2012. But by all accounts, he is back to his old form and ready to assume one of the top spots in the Gators rotation. Crawford, unlike Whitson, pitched the best ball of his career last year after throwing just 3.2 innings as a freshman. In 77.2 innings, Crawford recorded 73 strikeouts with a 3.13 ERA in 2012. He also threw NCAA Regional opener against BethuneCookman. The third spot in the rotation? For the In 2012, the Gators returned their top three starters from the previous season Whitson, Hudson Randall and Brian Johnson. Randall and Johnson were already mainstays in the rotation prior to the 2011 season, and the highly touted Whitson won a weekend spot early on. But even if Whitson disappointed as a freshman, OSullivan had Alex Panteliodis, who started 26 games between 2009 and 2010, ready to step in. Florida does not have that same pitching depth, as a reloaded roster prepares for the 2013 season. Sophomores Corey Stump and Johnny Magliozzi and junior Keenan Kish are candidates for the job. Magliozzi is the only pitcher, aside from Florida needs lefty in rotationSEE HOOPS, PAGE 16 SEE JOSH, PAGE 16 SEE WOMENS HOOPS, PAGE 16 UF Womens Bask etball Josh Jurnovoytwitter: @joshjurnovoy

Whitson and Crawford, who has made more than two career starts. Stump is, by far, the least experienced of the group with just four career innings pitched, but he should still be the one taking the mound on Sundays. Stump should get the nod because, unlike Magliozzi, Whitson, Kish and Crawford, he is a lefty. The Gators are going to face teams that have multiple good lefthanded hitters. Ideally, Flor ida would like to neutralize a lefty-heavy team with a southpaw at least once per weekend. While he didnt get on the has the pedigree to warrant a shot in the weekend rotation. Prior to his freshman season, Stump was ranked as Futures Collegiate Baseball League by Perfect Game and pect in the country by Baseball America. The 6-foot-5 Stump allowed one earned run in four His repertoire includes a fastball, a curveball and a changeup. The sample size for Stump at the collegiate level is admittedly small, but that doesnt mean OSullivan shouldnt give him a shot in non-conference play. In addition to the other possible third starters, Florida has Daniel Gibson, Ryan Har ris and Bobby Poyner in the bullpen to relieve Stump if he were to look shaky. ries would provide the best opportunity to test Stump as a starter. Florida opens against 34. Their second weekend series is against Florida Gulf Coast, which also ended last The track record might not be there, but the Gators should give Corey Stump a chance to give them the lefthanded presence theyve had in the rotation in each of the previous four seasons all of which ended with at least Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org.

Dubno said he had some trouble with the trademark, because the apps title includes the university name. However, UF spokesman Steve Orlando said the university had nothing to do with the app. The app featured a campus map students could sync with their schedules, a UF directory, RTS information, an event calendar, a UF news feed, a live camera feed from the Southwest Recreation Center and a chat function that allowed students to interact with the UF community.

The addition will be north of Bryan Hall, near the corner of Southwest 13th Street and University Avenue, and the college expects to break ground in April for undergraduate classrooms. The construction and furniture move-in should be completed in Summer 2014, Howie Ferguson, the project manager, wrote in an email. But 21-year-old Elise Van Wie isnt thrilled with the new addition. Van Wie, a UF forest resources and conservation junior, is concerned about the number of trees that will have to be cut down for the new building. After she looked at an online map of the area, she said, she thinks about 100 trees will have to be cut down. Having two large buildings in that visible corner of campus will change the character of that area, she said. I dont know for better or for worse, but I would like to see the trees stay. Van Wie said she plans to write a letter to UF President Bernie Machen to ask him to consider the environmental costs and impacts. Van Wie said she is alone in trying to gain awareness about the trees for now. something like this, she said. Learning through my classes and what my professors are talking about, seeing something like this makes me want to apply what Im learning. Ferguson said the exact quantity of trees that will have to be cut down is still being determined.

It will be built in the parking lot of the old headquarters, 721 NW Sixth St. Since 2010, Gainesville Police scattered throughout the city after the department left the old building because of spacing and age issues, Tobias said. Gainesville Police originally planned to renovate the former headquarters, he said. However, due to structural issues, planners decided to demolish the building and construct a new one because it would save money.

He said three underground utilities have to run outside the building. Some trees will have to be removed anyway because they are in poor health. UF Spokeswoman Janine Sikes said the location has been part of the university master plan as the future building site since 2005. With about 4,000 students in the program, Sikes said the college needs space to focus on the undergraduate experience. As for the trees, Sikes said the mitigation plans include replenishing the campus with twice as many trees than will be cut down. Van Wie said replenishing trees is a step in the right direction, but she wasnt sure if it outweighs the cost of removing the larger, historic ones. They are trying to take measures that will hopefully make up for it in the long run, she said. Id say I respect them for that, and I think that its a noble effort. In addition, Van Wie is concerned with keeping the natural integrity and original aesthetic intact. You are going to walk around campus and see trees, but for how long? When do you stop building? Van Wie said. With our campus focusing on sustainability, preserving trees could be a cool step in that direction. However, Ferguson said the buildings exterior will be very traditional, keeping with the UF gothic style, while still being energyThe new building will strive for a Gold or Platinum ings. Stopping the construction isnt something that would happen, Van Wie said. But I think its important to get a voice out there to show there are people who care.

Rick Scott announced Tuesday that 11 state colleges have accepted a four-year, $10,000 tuition plan, which brings the total to 23 schools. With the announcement, every state school that offers a bachelors degree in the Florida College System has committed to Scotts higher education affordability plan. He formed the plan to create more jobs and offer affordable higher education for state residents. schools to support the plan. The college announced its participation shortly after Scott announced the initiative in November. Jackson Sasser, SFC president, said he was enthusiastic about the program. We immediately endorsed it because its a symbol of Santa Fes desire to provide access to students, he said. Sasser said SFCs tuition ranges from about $11,000 to about $13,000 for the six bachelors degrees the college offers. As part of the $10,000 plan, Sasser said the college will cut the cost of attendance by offering more online classes, recruiting more students with AP and dual-enrollment credits and block tuition. Sasser said that, with careful planning $10,000 goal is a possibility for SFC. When you can get alignment bea good deal, he said. Gov. Scotts tuition plan gets additional collegiate support CHAD FURSTAlligator Contributing WriterSweet-toothed Gainesville residents have had frozen yogurt, ice cream and gelato to choose from. But a new restaurant will give them a fourth option to settle their cravings. SweetBerries Eatery & Frozen Custard, a family-owned restaurant that specializes in frozen custards and homemade foods, will have its grand opening Friday. The restaurant, 505 NW 13th St., is owned and managed by sisters Jane Osmond and Janice Easton. Before Osmond followed her passion for food, she was a respiratory therapist for about 15 years. She left her job to attend culinary school. SweetBerries was established 15 years ago by Osmond and Eastons family. The Gainesville location will be the third restaurant in the state. The restaurant replaces Books Inc. and Book Lovers Cafe. The owners retired in January 2012, according to Alligator archives. Although Osmond stressed the family aspect of SweetBer ries, she said the real story is the restaurants food, which is homemade and comes from years of family recipes. Were not a chain, she said. We pride ourselves on quality, and we feel like we have a really good product. SweetBerries offers sandwiches, salads and soups along with frozen custards. One of the restaurants signature desserts is its concretes, which are frozen custards blended with fruits, nuts and other toppings. Osmond said she looks for ward to doing business with UF students because her restaurant is close to campus. However, Osmond said she faces the challenge of having ingredients delivered to Gainesville from major food distribution companies in Orlando and Tampa. She added that running the restaurant will be a new experience for her and Easton. The biggest challenge is getting over our learning curve, Osmond said. As for people who may be unsure about the new restaurant, Osmond said once they give it a try, they will be convinced. If theyve never had frozen custard, theyre going to be wowed they will have a hard time going back to regular old ice cream, she said.Gainesvilles new custard shop to host grand opening FridayThe shop is located at 505 NW 13th St. If theyve never had frozen custard, theyre going to be wowed they will have a hard time going back to regular old ice cream.Jane OsmondSweetBerries co-owner

Jillette John son and UF student Rachel Rose joined him as opening acts. STEVEN KATONAAvenue Contributing WriterStudents in the College of Fine Arts at UF may not be able to create cat art in class, but that didnt stop them from doing it outside the classroom. Just Cats is exactly what it sounds like. It is an art show that nine art students created to display anything and everything cat-related, an opportunity to do something fun and connect with other people who share common interests. This is the opposite of what we would ever do in our classes, said Dounia Bendris, a 20-year-old UF art junior. Its basically a gallery reception with different cat art from different art majors. Bendris said she hopes the concept and theme of the show will encourage students to come and view art, and because it is Just Cats, it will create a more inviting atmosphere. If that isnt enough, maybe people will be attracted with the free food, she said. The show is being held in association with the Reitz Union Board Entertainment and can be viewed on Union in the gallery. The artwork will be on display from Thursday through of the show is during the gallery reception from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Feb. 7. At the reception, there will be food and drinks, and people will have the opportunity to view different mediums of cat art and talk to the students who created them. A lot of our art will be conceptual in some way, and its such an open topic that relates to our culture. Our work is about the connection between cats and the Inter net and how we relate to that and how it society, said Zac Thompson, a 20-yearold UF art junior, who is one of the artists featured in the show. He and eight others are creating works of art such as paintings, drawings, mixed media, photographs and sculptures to put on display in the gallery, some of which will be available for purchase the night of the reception. Were going to have a contact list, so if you see anything that you want, you can contact the artist directly Devin Kelly, a 20-year-old UF graphic design junior, who is also the director of the gallery. Both the original pieces as well as prints will be available for purchase. Thompson said he hopes this show will make people aware of what the gallery has to offer and will get people interested in viewing art and attending other art galleries on campus.

STEVEN KATONAAvenue Contributing WriterThe fog-kissed air vibrated as the bass from the subwoofers melted into atmosphere does every Saturday night at Spannk. People lined up outside the door shoulder-to-shoulder take part in an underground dance movement and party Neon Ligerstyle. The weekend social event is becoming more popular with each year, and this Sathind the booth. Neon Liger will also relaunch its website, www.neonliger.com, with added features and online shopping options. Neon Liger continues to set the bar for Gainesville nightlife, and for Vijay Seixas, founder of Neon Liger and part-owner of Spannk, its all about the music. You wont hear what we play here anywhere else. We stick to the more under ground music because we like to introduce new stuff, Seixas said. Five years ago, there was no other electronic music nights going on, so we were doing it and had some under ground following, and now, it has become a lot more popular. Neon Ligers MC, Will Newton, a UF alumnus, said, Its the best dance party that has ever existed. People come here to be themselves, and everyone has a really good time. The best dance music in Gainesville is right here, right now. There are 16 18-inch subwoofers that hit so hard the air itself vibrates. The sound waves tickle the inside of your chest as they pass through space. Rodrigo Lizarraga, the graphic and web designer for Neon Liger, is not satin town besides Saturday nights at Spannk. He is the person responsible for creating the revamped website, which will unleash Saturday. The last Neon Liger website I designed was two years ago. The new website will be a lot more full-featured. One of the biggest additions is the merchandise store. And the website itself is going to have a brand-new design. Its going to be a much larger website to accommodate the growing Neon Liger brand, Lizarraga said. Seixas said the name Neon Liger was Our friend had a cat that he called Liger. We were looking up party names when we called Neon Pony, so we just called it Neon Liger, he said. 10 p.m., anyone 21 and up gets free beer, and if you RSVP on Facebook, there is no cover charge.

But as long as there are girls to scream over dancing boys, the genre will always live on, said Michael DesRosiers, a 22-yearold UF biochemistry senior. With the 2012 boy band resur gence, groups like One Direction and The Wanted helped the craze experience a revival. Now, in 2013, iconic boy band New Kids On The Block has announced its tour with two other male-singing-and-dancing groups: Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees. The summer tour, called The Package Tour, will follow the release of New Kids On The Blocks new album,10, set to release April 2. DesRosiers said 90s bands, at their age, shouldnt be on tour. The appeal of boy bands rests on the band members being boys, capable of stir ring up the hormones of pre-teen girls, he said. When older men try to do the same thing, thats a little strange. Out of the three bands touring, Boyz II Men has still managed to stay around, with steady releases over the years, including a new CD released in 2011. Justin Robinson, a 21-year-old UF recreation tourism and event management junior, said its because Boyz II Men is timeless. They arent catchy little theme songs, he said. They have substance to them almost like a contemporary Temptations. He said he thinks Boyz II Men going back on tour is a good idea but wouldnt go see them live unless he was with a girl. Evvy Struzynski, a 21-year-old UF public relations senior, said as a s child, she was excited to hear about the tour. I wish it were Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC instead, she said. But Ill take our generations boy bands over The Wanted any day.

Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr. com/ask Ariel Barnes Dear Friend, It is completely within your rights to ask for a ride home. Hopefully you gave an equal or greater amount of pleasuring to your onenight-stand buddy. If this person is a jerk and lives too far away, ask a friend to pick you up. Avoid the bus on your walk-of-shame endeavor. I guarantee it will be one of the lowpoints of your life, but if you must, maybe youll get lucky and someone will give you the slow clap. Dear Mediocre Advice, What is the morning-after protocol for sleeping over at a one-night-stands place if I didnt drive? Dear Mediocre Advice, Why are freshmen so dumb? Were we that dumb? I hope not. Dear Friend, nitely that dumb once. Its a good thing if you can admit it. Freshmen have yet to metaphorically s--t their pants about entering the real world. Freshman and sophomore years are spent carelessly. Junior year is a little bit of a sweat with deciding what to do, but no worries because there is still time to f--k around. Senior year is a whole world of denial, espeyear is in the horizon. Basically, the amount of time in college is like running from the giant boulder in Indiana Jones, but in this version you actually die. You think you have time to run away, and for a short while you do, but in the end the boulder catches up to you. Then you end up moving back in with your parents.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 31, 2013 BAKR SALIQAvenue WriterIf disaster hit Gainesville, what would happen? Written by Tom Sims and illustrated by Cincinnati K., the short story series Elotchaway explores life in a future Gainesville after a calamity has made the luxuries we have grown accustomed to useless. Its not about a disaster, its about what happens after, said Jim Chapin, 25, the editor of the Elotchaway series. The story is on its fourth issue and is gaining local popularity due to its familiar setting. Scenes in the book take place on a warped Bo Diddley Community Plaza and a Gainesville Regional Utilities-like plant held together with wire and glue. Elotchaway can be ordered online at www.elotchawaystories. com and in locally owned businesses, such as The Midnight Caf and Bar, 223 S. Main St.; The Bull, 18 SW First Ave.; and inside Karma Cream, 1025 W. University Ave. The lack of locally owned bookstores in Gainesville has driven cal cafes. Chapin said the theme in Elotchaway of lacking conventional means has lined up well with the way the story is being distributed. The story is about a failure of infrastructure and having to make your own alternatives, Chapin said.Short story series depicts Gainesville scenes ALYSSA HOLCOMBAvenue WriterIn a night devoted to performance alone, the Screen Actors Guild Awards wasted no time in honoring the years top contenders. What makes the SAG Awards so unique (and one of my favorite ceremonies) is that the actors vote for their fellow actors, making the year in cinema come full circle between their peers. One of the best parts of the night comes at the beginning with the I Am An Actor monologues. Every year, select actors are chosen to face the camera and give a short speech, sometimes laughable and sometimes moving, about what made them become an actor. This years chosen performers included Jane Krakowski from 30 Rock, Darren Criss from Glee, Helen Hunt from The Sessions and the legendary Hal Holbrook. Even better? There were some (gasp!) upsets in prominent categories. The BBC hit Downton Abbey took the statue for Outstanding Perfor mance for an Ensemble in a Drama Series, besting the likes of Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire. Silver Linings Playbook star Jennifer Lawrence bested Jessica Chastain in Zero Dark Thirty for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role; tripping her way up to the stage, she sode of MTVs My Super Sweet Sixteen. Some categories went to the front runners set by the Golden Globes, including Anne Hathaway in Les Miserables for Outstanding Per formance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role and Daniel Day-Lewis in Lincoln nabbing the Lead Actor win. TV wins included Female Actor in a Drama Series Claire Danes for Homeland and the cast of Modern Family for Ensemble in a Comedy Series. The legendary Dick Van Dyke received a lifetime achievement award. Van Dykes undeniably grateful demeanor made for a sweet highlight. Capping the night off with the Outstanding Per formance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award was Argo, which has been notably snubbed this seaMany of the speeches of the night were more heartfelt and meaningful than the rest because it was actors thanking actors, the people they work with and the people whove inspired them.

14, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 31, 2013 WOMENS TENNIS ROBERT JUDINAlligator WriterThe Florida womens tennis team won its 24th consecutive dual match in a 7-0 victory against UCF on Wednesday afternoon at Linder Stadium. But the Gators win got off to a rocky start. Junior Olivia Janowicz and freshman Danielle Collins took on the Knights Genevieve Lorbergs and Josephine Haraldson on Court 1 in doubles. Lorbergs and Haraldson quickly took a 5-2 lead. An array of drop shots and returns into the net proved costly for Janowicz and Collins. On one point, Collins lost her balance, fell and tried to snag the ball with her left hand. The errors proved too much for UF to overcome as Haraldson and Lorbergs sealed an 8-3 victory.

LANDON WATNICK Alligator Writer Florida has smothered its Southeastern Conference opponents this season, but delivered its biggest trouncing against South Carolina. The No. 4 Gators (17-2, 7-0 SEC) held the Gamecocks to 31.1 percent shooting and forced 17 turnovers en route to a 75-36 victory on Wednesday night in the OConnell Center. The 39-point win is UFs largest margin of victory in SEC play. South Carolinas 36 points are the secondfewest Florida has allowed this season. Every time they tried to run a play, we kind of beat them to the step, senior guard Kenny Boynton said. We beat them to a spot, and that kind of messed up their plays. They didnt know what to do. The Gators held the Gamecocks (12-8, 2-5 SEC) to 3-of-21 shooting press shook South Carolina early, committing nine turnovers in the 22 points off of turnovers. We did a good job of when the ball came inbounds waiting and being patient, coach Billy Donovan said. When the ball probably got right above the top-of-the-key area, we were able to kind of trap, rotate and take away the next available pass. Mike Rosario and Boynton each bined 11-of-22 shooting. Boynton tallied a season-best seven assists. Freshman guard Michael Frazier II added 12 points, burying 4 of his 6 three-point attempts. After shooting 2 of 6 from the Gators went on a 16-4 run to increase their advantage to 21-4 with Floridas most dynamic defensive play came from junior center Patric Young with 1:45 remaining Eric Smith drove into the lane for a layup attempt, Young swatted the ball off the backboard. Youngs rejection led to a fastbreak dunk by Rosario on the other end. The redshirt senior was called for a technical foul after the play for hanging on the rim. If I were to let go at that moment, I would have slipped and hurt myself, Rosario said. The ref told me on the second swing, he had to give me a technical foul. I was like, OK.

Moores three was the ninth by Ole Miss in the opening half. The Rebels shot 11 of 16 from behind the arc in an Conference win of the season. After the game, UF coach Amanda Butler expressed her displeasure with Florida catching Ole Miss on perhaps its best shooting night of the year. The Rebels had not shot better than 50 percent from three-point range prior to shooting 68.8 percent against the Gators. Clearly, we didnt have everybody on their team pegged as a shooter, Butler said. But it didnt really matter who was behind the three-point line tonight. Everything they put up fell. Ole Miss success continued a trend: UFs three-point defense has been dismal this season. Florida has allowed opponents to shoot 32.3 percent from behind the arc this year, which is 12th in the conference and 256th in the nation. In SEC play, opponents are shooting 38.1 percent from three-point range, leaving Floridas defense at 13th in the conference. It certainly has been a weakness struggled with awareness not just who the hot shooter is, but where is she. Through seven conference games, opponents have made 45 of 118 tries against the Gators. Butler has pointed to Floridas failure to guard the threepoint line as the central factor in its poor UF struggles defending arcJURNY DUTY On Fridays and Saturdays, Kevin OSullivan doesnt have much to worry about. The Florida coach has two established starting pitchers in juniors Jonathon Crawford and Karsten Whitson. Following a promising freshman season, Whitson tailed off in his sophomore campaign. After being hampered by a lingering groin injury in the fall of 2011, he was behind the curve from the get-go in 2012. But by all accounts, he is back to his old form and ready to assume one of the top spots in the Gators rotation. Crawford, unlike Whitson, pitched the best ball of his career last year after throwing just 3.2 innings as a freshman. In 77.2 innings, Crawford recorded 73 strikeouts with a 3.13 ERA in 2012. He also threw NCAA Regional opener against BethuneCookman. The third spot in the rotation? For the In 2012, the Gators returned their top three starters from the previous season Whitson, Hudson Randall and Brian Johnson. Randall and Johnson were already mainstays in the rotation prior to the 2011 season, and the highly touted Whitson won a weekend spot early on. But even if Whitson disappointed as a freshman, OSullivan had Alex Panteliodis, who started 26 games between 2009 and 2010, ready to step in. Florida does not have that same pitching depth, as a reloaded roster prepares for the 2013 season. Sophomores Corey Stump and Johnny Magliozzi and junior Keenan Kish are candidates for the job. Magliozzi is the only pitcher, aside from Florida needs lefty in rotationSEE HOOPS, PAGE 16 SEE JOSH, PAGE 16 SEE WOMENS HOOPS, PAGE 16 UF W omens Bask etball Josh Jurnovoytwitter: @joshjurnovoy

Whitson and Crawford, who has made more than two career starts. Stump is, by far, the least experienced of the group with just four career innings pitched, but he should still be the one taking the mound on Sundays. Stump should get the nod because, unlike Magliozzi, Whitson, Kish and Crawford, he is a lefty. The Gators are going to face teams that have multiple good lefthanded hitters. Ideally, Flor ida would like to neutralize a lefty-heavy team with a southpaw at least once per weekend. While he didnt get on the has the pedigree to warrant a shot in the weekend rotation. Prior to his freshman season, Stump was ranked as Futures Collegiate Baseball League by Perfect Game and pect in the country by Baseball America. The 6-foot-5 Stump allowed one earned run in four His repertoire includes a fastball, a curveball and a changeup. The sample size for Stump at the collegiate level is admittedly small, but that doesnt mean OSullivan shouldnt give him a shot in non-conference play. In addition to the other possible third starters, Florida has Daniel Gibson, Ryan Har ris and Bobby Poyner in the bullpen to relieve Stump if he were to look shaky. ries would provide the best opportunity to test Stump as a starter. Florida opens against 34. Their second weekend series is against Florida Gulf Coast, which also ended last The track record might not be there, but the Gators should give Corey Stump a chance to give them the lefthanded presence theyve had in the rotation in each of the previous four seasons all of which ended with at least Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org.
