ANDREW KAYS and TOVA MILLERAlligator Contributing WritersAfter two days, white smoke from the Sistine Chapel signaled the end of the search for a new pope. On Wednesday, members of the College of Cardinals selected Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, 76, of Buenos Aires, Argentina, to be the 266th pontiff and lead the Roman Catholic Church under his new name, Pope Francis I. Thousands of people packed into St. Peters Square to see Pope Francis Rebecca Drescher, a 20-year-old UF English junior who is studying abroad in Rome, said she had to act fast to make it through the sea of waving of the historical moment. It stopped raining when the pope came out, she said. He addressed the Roman people and everyone cheered Francesco! over and over. Everyone was extremely emotional and excited. It was the coolest thing, being a part of history. Americas to be elected pope and the in at least 1,200 years. He succeeds Benedict XVI, the pope emeritus, who announced his resignation last month.

The 24-year-old UF sociology junior learned about the market when he got off the bus this week. I just thought the building was under construction until I saw the sign for Subway, he said.

candidates running in the 2013 BILLY KENNEDYAlligator Contributing WriterEd Braddy is a back-to-the-basics guy who thinks Gainesville needs new leadership. Braddy, 41, is running for mayor in Tuesdays Gainesville city elections on a platform to advocate small-business growth and improve communication between the city and its residents. Im very disappointed in the leadership out of City Hall, he said. Braddy is the testing coordinator at Santa Fe College and the executive director for the American Dream promotes market-oriented solutions to urban problems. He has lived in Gainesville since 1991. After he graduated from Santa Fe College, Braddy earned a bachelors degree in history from UF and a masters degree in American history at James Madison University. From 2002 to 2008, Braddy served as the District 2 City Commissioner. He said his experience on the commission helped him learn how to lead and address city issues. Youve got to go to where the people are to understand their concerns, he said. If elected mayor, Braddy said he would work to improve public safety services and repair city infrastructure. You cant sit there and let them fall into disrepair, he said. Braddy added that he would treat residents with respect during public meetings and show an interest in affordability for residents. To Braddy, the public comments section of City Commission meetings has become a highly contested event. He wants time to share their ideas. Its not the mayors meeting, he said. Its the peoples meeting. If people want to take four minutes Debbie Martinez, a former downtown business owner, said she has known Braddy since 1998. She agrees with Braddys goal to connect the government and residents. She supported his opposition to a city biomass contract. Ed Braddy is the only mayoral candidate with the good judgment on these issues, she said.

UF Student Governments Chomp the Vote agency hosted the forum in the Reitz Union Rion Ballroom. About 60 people attended. Mayoral candidates Ed Braddy, Scherwin L. Henry, Pete Johnson, Donald Shepherd, Mark Venzke and incumbent Craig Lowe participated along with District 4 candidates Alfredo Espinosa, W.E. Mac McEachern and incumbent Randy Wells. Espinosa said he wants to create a liaison between UFs Career Resource Center and the Gainesville Chamber of Commerce that would notify students of internship and job oppor tunities in the city. Venzke, Johnson and Lowe support soft closing. McEachern said that soft closings have been done before and didnt work, but said he is willing to listen to anything that you have to present. Wells said utility rates have declined for typical users, but rates in other parts of Florida have dropped more. Espinosa said the city should get out of its current biomass contract. Lowe disagreed, saying that biomass is cost-effective in the long run. Braddy said the biomass isnt environmentally friendly. That biomass plant is going to consume 1.4 million gallons of water per day, he said. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MARCH 14, 2013 Elise Giordano / Alligator StaffMayoral candidate and former District 2 Commissioner Ed Braddy, 41, advocates public safety services and repairing roads and parks.

[The Jesuits] have a long history of being innovators in the church, Vasquez added. And along with that comes controversy also. Gonzalo Girado, a 22-year-old UF mechanical engineering senior and president of the Argentine Student Association, said he was proud an Argentine was selected pope. It shows the church is more diverse and how Latin American society as a whole is making a movement, he said. Luke DeHon, a 20-yearold UF economics junior and Catholic Gators member, said he will support Pope Francis because of his views and his alignment with church doctrine.

Carroll resigned this week amid an investigation into an charges against 57 people, according to the Los Angeles Times. Individuals were arrested [Tuesday] for racketeering and money laundering charges in connection with Allied Veterans of the Worlds illegal gambling companies, Scotts chief of staff, Adam Hollingsworth, wrote in an email to reporters, according to the LA Times. Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll consulted for Allied Veterans while serving as a member of the Florida House of Representatives in 2009 and 2010. She was interviewed by Florida Department pany, he said. Lt. Gov. Carroll resigned in an effort to keep her administrations important work on behalf of Florida families. She made the right decision for the state and her family. Allied Veterans was founded in 1979 and evolved from a charitable organization that ran bingo games and held bake sales for veterans to a group suspected of widespread illegal gambling around Florida, according to an Internal Revenue Serthe charity a fraud. Not only are you running an illegal gambling scheme, but its also under the guise of a veterans charity? Youve gotta be kidding.

Regardless of her direct involvement with the gambling scheme, were happy Carroll stepped down this week. She was aide to Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll claiming that she caught her boss in a compromising position with another female staffer, according to the New York Daily News. That wasnt the problem. The problem was how Carroll responded to the accusation. like that, Carroll said, with a laugh. Instead of being an awesome role model, she basically only did things that didnt make anyone proud. What do resigning lieutenant governors say in their resignation letters? Carrolls was two sentences. It was addressed to The Honorable Rick Scott, and it read: ant Governor of the State of Florida. It has been an honor to have served the State of Florida in this capacity.Shame of the Nation: Floridas politicians are the worstOn Tuesday night, I, along with hundreds of other students and Gainesville residents, had the distinct privilege to hear Elie Wiesel, writer, Nobel laureate and Holocaust survivor, speak at UF. He ambled onto the stage and delivered a beautiful speech about the power of knowledge and the sin of wasting it. He talked about speaking to the Dalai Lama and meeting Oprah. During the Q-and-A session that followed his speech, he listened patiently as quivering, awestruck students asked questions about survival, the existence of God and his opinions about current global issues. The questions, on the whole, were interesting and thoughtprovoking, except one. A man on the mezzanine level of the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts approached the microphone and asked for Wiesel to weigh in on the debate about the Second Amendment in the United States. Wiesel said that if a person needs a license to drive a car, then he or she needs a license to buy a gun. The same man asked a follow-up question, something to this effect: Did Wiesel believe the events of the Holocaust would have been different if Germany had had an equivalent to the Second Amendment? A murmur went through the audience, and people craned in their seats to see who would ask Wiesel, a prominent advocate against violence, a calculated question about gun control? Wiesel, of course, answered with aplomb. He said, in his extended answer, that he doesnt believe in ifs. The historical-speculation argument for gun control isnt new, but as Alex Seitz-Wald, political reporter for Salon, wrote in his piece The Hitler gun control lie, The ancillary claim that Jews could have stopped the Holocaust with more guns doesnt make any sense at all if you think about it for more than a minute. Does the fact that Nazis forced Jews into horrendous ghettos indict urban planning? Seitz-Wald wrote. Should These are merely implements that can be used for good or evil, as much as gun advocates like to argue about guns themselves. If guns dont kill people, then neither does gun control cause genocide (genocidal regimes cause genocide). And while Wiesel was correct in his assertion that big ifs such as this are meaningless, I dont believe the question he was presented came from a place of good intentions or a desire for the intelligent answer that Wiesel provided. I believe the man in the audience was looking for a speOne of the problems with the current gun-control debate is the pro-gun inclination for unfounded logic for more relaxed gun laws. Arming teachers will not stop school shootings, pressuring women to carry guns at all times will not lower rape statistics and, unfortunately, guns would not have prevented a Holocaust during World War II. need these guns to protect themselves from the governany knowledge and understanding of the past, but also that they are consciously or not imbued with the type of fascist or cally elected government, indeed turn their guns on it, just because they dont like its policies, its ideology or the color, race and origin of its leaders. The question of speculation at a serious discussion about philosophy and survival at a lecture given by a man who has devoted his life to what the Norwegian Nobel Committee called practical work in the cause of peace is simply a waste of time.

theAvenue CHARITY HITTAvenue Contributing WriterYou might mistakenly call it a blanket, a bedspread or a cover. You might even correctly call it a quilt. For the Quilters of Alachua County Day Guild, a quilt is more than that: Its a piece of art. Quilting refers to the technique of joining three layers of fabric with stitches or ties to make a layered type of blanket that features differ ent designs. Quilting is an art just as painting of the Quilters of Alachua County and fabrics rather than paints and a brush. Rosell is a long-time quilter who began practicing her art more than 30 years ago in a small quilt shop in Plantation. Rosell, a retired schoolteacher, moved to Gainesville in 1996 and opened her business, RoseCreek Quilts, in 2001. Two years later, she became one of the founding members of the guild, a group of local Gainesville quilters who share a passion for tquilting through a variety of activities. The group took off faster than Rosell expected. When six initial members sat down and started the day guild 10 meeting, but we werent sure how much interest wed have, Rosell said. So, we decided to set out 25 chairs, but we ended up having 65 Ten years later, the guild has grown to more than 120 members who participate in activities that range from quilting workshops and shows to community service and outreach. Since the guild began in 2003, members have made a name for themselves in Alachua County, having donated more than 800 quilts along with tote bags, medical dolls, pillowcases and other handmade items to the Gainesville Fire Department and Alachua County Public Schools, among other organizations. Beverly Hilton, owner of quilting and craft supply store Crafty Bev and former vice president of the guild, said its eye-opening to see the kind of impact their service has on the community. A child who gets a quilt when shes just had to leave her home under some pretty traumatic conditions receives something she can hold onto. She knows someone made this for me, someone cared enough to make something that I can call my own, she said. We love sewing together, and we have fun doing it. But Im telling you, it really puts our activities in a different perspective. Though members share a mission to serve the community and a common passion for quilting, the guild is made up of several different types of quilters, many of who are quilters. Rosell is a traditionalist a quilter who uses blocks of fabric to make a quilt pattern, much like one would see on a bed quilt. Hilton considers herself an art quilter. After health problems in 1999 left her unable to read lines and patterns required for traditional quilting, she transitioned into art quilting. There are no rules in art quilting. I still appreciate traditional quilting, but personally, I love the freedom of being able to come up with a crazy ton said. An art quilts purpose is to tell a story to communicate a concept from the quilter to the viewer, much like other art forms. An art quilt can literally take one evening or a couple of years. It really depends on the complexity of it. Sometimes you get stuck ... just like writers block, Hilton said. So what constitutes an art quilt? Honestly, art is in the eye of the beholder, so youll see lots of differ ent things, Hilton said. Theres fabric painting and manipulation or simple techniques like appliqu. Its simply a matter of learning the materials and tools that are available to you, coming up with an idea and then executing it. March is National Quilting Month, and for local Gainesville quilters, its an opportunity to share their works of art with the community at festivals and exhibits across Florida. For local residents, one of those opportunities is at the Gainesville Tower Road Library through March, where members of the Quilters of Alachua County Day Guild have displayed their quilts on the librarys walls. This annual event is a favor ite among library patrons and has grown popular with the community, said Librarian and Adult Programming Coordinator Carolyn Wallace. People are really in anticipation each year to see the new quilts and the new designs, Wallace said. Some of the quilts are really amazing and innovative, and its so great to see the ones that are made for their community service projects. Its a passion for their art and serving their community that keeps these quilters needles working. Oh my goodness it becomes addictive, Rosell said. Its kind of like an adventure. Im always fascinated to see whats going to hap pen when Im able to turn this fabric into something special thats also useful to someone.

Dear Mediocre Advice, Im a female and have always wanted to experiment with girls. The opportunity never came up in college, and now that Ive graduated, I feel like I hook up with now? Dear Friend, ALYSSA HOLCOMBAvenue WriterAs if the rock n roll documentary wasnt enough, Dave Grohls Sound City players banded together to make an accompanying record the old-fashioned way. Director and mega-rocker Grohl appears on every track, changing up his involvement in each song. He drums, he riffs, he sings he is as much the heart and soul of this record as the Neve console that was artists careers. A variety of rockers are featured on the record, beginning with Rage Against the Machines Tim Commerford on the opening track, Time Slowing Down. Its slow to start, but the song eventually kicks in with a modern alternative feel. Segueing into Stevie Nicks contribution, You Cant Fix This, the mood changes decades with a s spirit taking over. Other notable tracks include From Can To Cant, which features Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour, and Mantra, which features Grohl, Queens of the Stone Ages Joshua Homme and Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor. The latter is an interesting mesh of Grohls gravelly voice and Reznors intricately dark, technologyinfused music. This is a clear standout on the record. It starts off soft, but by the end, it builds to a great crescendo. If one track were to sum up the experisoundtrack, its Cut Me Some Slack, which features Paul McCartney. As explained in the was purchased partially because of the desire to search for the next Beatles. Grohl and fellow Nirvana member Krist Novoselic play with McCartney on the rollicking, heavy track,ceating another standout song.

Moore is the founder and leader of the comedy troupe Whitest Kids U Know and a regular correspondent on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He also co-directed, co-wrote and co-starred in the 2009 comThe Whitest Kids U Know son on the Independent Film Channel in June 2011. The troupe is on the East Coast leg of its 2013 North American tour, and will per form a comedy show at High Dive at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Tickets are available at www.TicketWeb.com. The Avenue sat down with Moore to talk about the tour, his upcoming comedy album Drunk Texts to Myself, (available March 26) and how life has been for WKUK since the ending of the show. Q : What can fans expect from your Gainesville perfor mance? A : We used to do the show as a live show before it was a TV show. ...We do popular sketches that weve had, sketches that have done well on YouTube. We also do some deep cuts from the TV show, ones that we like that are more obscure. Then, we also do some sketches that we cant really do on a TV show that work more as live pieces. Q : Since WKUK wrapped, how has the dynamic between the guys been? A : Our dynamic hasnt really changed a whole bunch. The biggest difference is that we all dont live in the same city. ...We all come together to do these tours. Weve been in this troupe for 13 years now, so its kind of like riding a bicycle. Q : Where does the inspiration for sketches come from? A : I like a lot of social commentary stuff. I guess I have a fairly apparent disdain for authority. I guess that would be the common thread with a lot of Whitest Kids stuff and the videos Im doing now. Q : What was the process of arranging songs and skits on your album Drunk Texts to Myself? A : Drunk Texts to Myself was fun because I tend to send myself drunk texts all the time like little messages or notes. Instead of writing things on the refrigerator door, Ill just text myself when Im drunk. But then the next day, I never understand what any of these things are. So, I just said, Im going to just take a bunch of them from the last six months and put them to a tune. So, those are all my actual drunk texts. Those are all real.Whitest Kids U Know talk comedy Grohl Moore

As one of two holdovers from Urban Meyers staff in 2010 Durkin has spent the past three seasons as linebackers coach and special teams coordinator with the Gators. But when defensive coordinator position with the Seattle Seahawks, coach Will Muschamp quickly prorole. Its good timing, I guess, I dont know, Durkin said of becoming Ive always tried to keep your head down and work as hard as you can, and deal with your players honestly and deal with other coaches honestly and just be who you are. And it really is, it is good timing. Durkin began his coaching career as a graduate assistant on Meyers Bowling Green staff in 2001. He also spent time as a defensive assistant at Bowling Green, as well as Notre Dame and Stanford before He has since made a name for himself by leading the Gators special teams, a unit that has been largely successful under his guidkicks, recovered four fumbles and scored two touchdowns on special teams. Durkin hopes to bring the mindset that made his special teams unit so successful to his defense. Youve seen the identity of our defense, what we as a staff have wanted to build here: We want to be a tough, blue-collar team, Durkin said. We want to play with unbelievable effort and enthusiasm in what were doing. Thats the way I coach. Thats my personality.

CHUCK KINGSBURYAlligator WriterThe spotlight is shining brightly on the Gators. Not only does Florida hold the highest scores in each event in the NCAA, but its roster continues to improve as it reaches the end of the regular season. Led by senior Ashanee Dicker son, who has won nine individual titles and is seventh on vault in the nation with a 9.925 average, UF has built on its quality performances down the stretch. Looking at every competition weve had this year, every time we step away, no matter what the score was or who we were facing we always step away knowing we can do better, coach Rhonda Faehn said. the season proved that. Facing No. 14 Minnesota on March 1, Florida scored 198.425 points, the highest team score in a meet since 2004. Three of the last winners Alabama, which has won two national titles, and UCLA failed to top 197.875 during their championship seasons. The Crimson Tide recorded a season-high 197.85 against the Gators in the NCAA Super Six and put together a season-best total of 197.675 in 2011. UF has hit the 198 mark twice this season. Even though we had that great meet at Alabama and Minnesota, its fun to think that we have places to improve on, which is mind-boggling to me, Jamie Shisler said. We go into every competition knowing we can hit and knowing what we are capable of, and its a calming feeling. When Florida lost All-American Alaina Johnson to a lower-back injury on Jan. 25, it appeared the Gators would suffer a setback. Johnson, an all-around competitor, was instrumental in Floridas record-setting uneven bars performance against Missouri on Jan. 18, a week prior to her injury. But instead of stumbling down the stretch, the Gators grew stronger and used three program records to top Minnesota and prove they are worthy of their No. 1 ranking this season. They genuinely believe that theyre the best, Faehn said. 16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MARCH 14, 2013 Kelly Logan / Alligator Staff Gators peaking as postseason nears MAX MATTERNAlligator WriterWhen Sam Farrell arrived at Florida, she wanted to be one of the best lacrosse players in the nation. Winning the Tewaaraton Award, considered the equivalent of the Heisman Trophy in college lacrosse, was her dream. Four years later, the senior has nearly reached her goal. Farrell was named to the Tewaaraton Award watch list on Feb. 22 along with teammates Kitty Cullen, Brittany Dashiell and Mikey Meagher. Farrell never thought she would be recognized nationally as a defender. Farrell came to Florida as a man and sophomore seasons, the coaches thought she could make a bigger impact playing the back line. Moving to low [defense] was one of the best things to happen to me, Farrell said. On Tuesday night, Farrell helped the UF defense shut half of an 18-2 win. Since that switch, Farrell the Gators defensive unit. She anchors the nations sixth-best scoring defense, which allows 6.67 goals per game. Being a part of a great defensive unit like this one makes it easier to get noticed, Farrell said. Farrell is one of four seniors that Florida had on the Tewaaraton Award watch list. Maryland was the only other team with that many. To have four young ladies represent the University is coach Amanda OLeary said. It says where we are within the country, but certainly, individual honors are great for these young ladies. Nationally, earning recogscore goals and record assists, and goalkeepers can boast a high save percentage. Farrell leads the team with 12 forced turnovers this season and is tied for third with 14 groundballs. Only nine of the 50 players on the list are defenders. Nevertheless, OLeary believes Farrell deserves recognition. She just goes out and works hard every single day, OLeary said. Those successes are from that hard work. I think shes the best defender in the country. With her, mediocrity is not an option.Senior anchoring Floridas defenseLACROSSE

Braddy, 41, is running for mayor in Tuesdays Gainesville city elections on a platform to advocate small-business growth and improve communication between the city and its residents. Im very disappointed in the leadership out of City Hall, he said. Braddy is the testing coordinator at Santa Fe College and the executive director for the American Dream promotes market-oriented solutions to urban problems. He has lived in Gainesville since 1991. After he graduated from Santa Fe College, Braddy earned a bachelors degree in history from UF and a masters degree in American history at James Madison University. From 2002 to 2008, Braddy served as the District 2 City Commissioner. He said his experience on the commission helped him learn how to lead and address city issues. Youve got to go to where the people are to understand their concerns, he said. If elected mayor, Braddy said he would work to improve public safety services and repair city infrastructure. You cant sit there and let them fall into disrepair, he said. Braddy added that he would treat residents with respect during public meetings and show an interest in affordability for residents. To Braddy, the public comments section of City Commission meetings has become a highly contested event. He wants time to share their ideas. Its not the mayors meeting, he said. Its the peoples meeting. If people want to take four minutes Debbie Martinez, a former downtown business owner, said she has known Braddy since 1998.

Wells said utility rates have declined for typical users, but rates in other parts of Florida have dropped more. Espinosa said the city should get out of its current biomass contract. Lowe disagreed, saying that biomass is cost-effective in the long run. Braddy said the biomass isnt environmentally friendly.

Not to mention, our states government is often terrible and maybe even corrupt. No, were not even talking about Gov. Voldemort. Were talking about Floridas Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll. Carroll resigned this week amid an investigation into an charges against 57 people, according to the Los Angeles Times. Individuals were arrested [Tuesday] for racketeering and money laundering charges in connection with Allied Veterans of the Worlds illegal gambling companies, Scotts chief of staff, Adam Hollingsworth, wrote in an email to reporters, according to the LA Times. Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll consulted for Allied Veterans while serving as a member of the Florida House of Representatives in 2009 and 2010. She was interviewed by Florida Department pany, he said. Lt. Gov. Carroll resigned in an effort to keep her administrations important work on behalf of Florida families. She made the right decision for the state and her family. Allied Veterans was founded in 1979 and evolved from a charitable organization that ran bingo games and held bake sales for veterans to a group suspected of widespread illegal gambling around Florida, according to an Internal Revenue Serthe charity a fraud. Not only are you running an illegal gambling scheme, but its also under the guise of a veterans charity? Youve gotta be kidding. It was not enough that were are the laughingstock of the nation, now were also more despicable than we were just a week ago? Regardless of her direct involvement with the gambling scheme, were happy Carroll stepped down this week. She was aide to Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll claiming that she caught her boss in a compromising position with another female staffer, according to the New York Daily News. That wasnt the problem. The problem was how Carroll responded to the accusation. like that, Carroll said, with a laugh. Instead of being an awesome role model, she basically only did things that didnt make anyone proud. What do resigning lieutenant governors say in their resignation letters? Carrolls was two sentences. It was addressed to The Honorable Rick Scott, and it read: ant Governor of the State of Florida. It has been an honor to have served the State of Florida in this capacity.Shame of the Nation: Floridas politicians are the worstOn Tuesday night, I, along with hundreds of other students and Gainesville residents, had the distinct privilege to hear Elie Wiesel, writer, Nobel laureate and Holocaust survivor, speak at UF. He ambled onto the stage and delivered a beautiful speech about the power of knowledge and the sin of wasting it. He talked about speaking to the Dalai Lama and meeting Oprah. During the Q-and-A session that followed his speech, he listened patiently as quivering, awestruck students asked questions about survival, the existence of God and his opinions about current global issues. The questions, on the whole, were interesting and thoughtprovoking, except one. A man on the mezzanine level of the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts approached the microphone and asked for Wiesel to weigh in on the debate about the Second Amendment in the United States. Wiesel said that if a person needs a license to drive a car, then he or she needs a license to buy a gun. The same man asked a follow-up question, something to this effect: Did Wiesel believe the events of the Holocaust would have been different if Germany had had an equivalent to the Second Amendment? A murmur went through the audience, and people craned in their seats to see who would ask Wiesel, a prominent advocate against violence, a calculated question about gun control? Wiesel, of course, answered with aplomb. He said, in his extended answer, that he doesnt believe in ifs. The historical-speculation argument for gun control isnt new, but as Alex Seitz-Wald, political reporter for Salon, wrote in his piece The Hitler gun control lie, The ancillary claim that Jews could have stopped the Holocaust with more guns doesnt make any sense at all if you think about it for more than a minute. Does the fact that Nazis forced Jews into horrendous ghettos indict urban planning? Seitz-Wald wrote. Should These are merely implements that can be used for good or evil, as much as gun advocates like to argue about guns themselves. If guns dont kill people, then neither does gun control cause genocide (genocidal regimes cause genocide). And while Wiesel was correct in his assertion that big ifs such as this are meaningless, I dont believe the question he was presented came from a place of good intentions or a desire for the intelligent answer that Wiesel provided. I believe the man in the audience was looking for a speOne of the problems with the current gun-control debate is the pro-gun inclination for unfounded logic for more relaxed gun laws. Arming teachers will not stop school shootings, pressuring women to carry guns at all times will not lower rape statistics and, unfortunately, guns would not have prevented a Holocaust during World War II. need these guns to protect themselves from the governany knowledge and understanding of the past, but also that they are consciously or not imbued with the type of fascist or cally elected government, indeed turn their guns on it, just because they dont like its policies, its ideology or the color, race and origin of its leaders. The question of speculation at a serious discussion about philosophy and survival at a lecture given by a man who has devoted his life to what the Norwegian Nobel Committee called practical work in the cause of peace is simply a waste of time.

theA v enue CHARITY HITTAvenue Contributing WriterYou might mistakenly call it a blanket, a bedspread or a cover. You might even correctly call it a quilt. For the Quilters of Alachua County Day Guild, a quilt is more than that: Its a piece of art. Quilting refers to the technique of joining three layers of fabric with stitches or ties to make a layered type of blanket that features differ ent designs. Quilting is an art just as painting of the Quilters of Alachua County and fabrics rather than paints and a brush. Rosell is a long-time quilter who began practicing her art more than 30 years ago in a small quilt shop in Plantation. Rosell, a retired schoolteacher, moved to Gainesville in 1996 and opened her business, RoseCreek Quilts, in 2001. Two years later, she became one of the founding members of the guild, a group of local Gainesville quilters who share a passion for tquilting through a variety of activities. The group took off faster than Rosell expected. When six initial members sat down and started the day guild 10 meeting, but we werent sure how much interest wed have, Rosell said. So, we decided to set out 25 chairs, but we ended up having 65 Ten years later, the guild has grown to more than 120 members who participate in activities that range from quilting workshops and shows to community service and outreach. Since the guild began in 2003, members have made a name for themselves in Alachua County, having donated more than 800 quilts along with tote bags, medical dolls, pillowcases and other handmade items to the Gainesville Fire Department and Alachua County Public Schools, among other organizations. Beverly Hilton, owner of quilting and craft supply store Crafty Bev and former vice president of the guild, said its eye-opening to see the kind of impact their service has on the community. A child who gets a quilt when shes just had to leave her home under some pretty traumatic conditions receives something she can hold onto. She knows someone made this for me, someone cared enough to make something that I can call my own, she said. We love sewing together, and we have fun doing it. But Im telling you, it really puts our activities in a different perspective. Though members share a mission to serve the community and a common passion for quilting, the guild is made up of several different types of quilters, many of who are quilters. Rosell is a traditionalist a quilter who uses blocks of fabric to make a quilt pattern, much like one would see on a bed quilt. Hilton considers herself an art quilter. After health problems in 1999 left her unable to read lines and patterns required for traditional quilting, she transitioned into art quilting. There are no rules in art quilting. I still appreciate traditional quilting, but personally, I love the freedom of being able to come up with a crazy ton said. An art quilts purpose is to tell a story to communicate a concept from the quilter to the viewer, much like other art forms. An art quilt can literally take one evening or a couple of years. It really depends on the complexity of it. Sometimes you get stuck ... just like writers block, Hilton said. So what constitutes an art quilt? Honestly, art is in the eye of the beholder, so youll see lots of differ ent things, Hilton said. Theres fabric painting and manipulation or simple techniques like appliqu. Its simply a matter of learning the materials and tools that are available to you, coming up with an idea and then executing it. March is National Quilting Month, and for local Gainesville quilters, its an opportunity to share their works of art with the community at festivals and exhibits across Florida. For local residents, one of those opportunities is at the Gainesville Tower Road Library through March, where members of the Quilters of Alachua County Day Guild have displayed their quilts on the librarys walls. This annual event is a favor ite among library patrons and has grown popular with the community, said Librarian and Adult Programming Coordinator Carolyn Wallace. People are really in anticipation each year to see the new quilts and the new designs, Wallace said. Some of the quilts are really amazing and innovative, and its so great to see the ones that are made for their community service projects. Its a passion for their art and serving their community that keeps these quilters needles working. Oh my goodness it becomes addictive, Rosell said. Its kind of like an adventure. Im always fascinated to see whats going to hap pen when Im able to turn this fabric into something special thats also useful to someone.

Dear Mediocre Advice, What is the meaning of life? Dear friend, Your friend should call her out on it. Where your friends roommate has sex Dear Mediocre Advice, My friends roommate lets her boyfriend stay with her for weeks at a time, and they have sex in a shower that four other people share. Also, she moans like a goat. What should my friend do? Dear Friend, your sexual needs and some just If hes not into the same dirty your desires. You can lead a horse s--t out of you. Dear Mediocre Advice, How do I get the nice, innocent guy Im sleeping with to talk dirty and be rough in the bedroom? Dear Mediocre Advice, Im a female and have always wanted to experi ment with girls. The opportunity never came up in college, and now that Ive graduated, I feel like I hook up with now? Dear Friend, ALYSSA HOLCOMBAvenue WriterAs if the rock n roll documentary wasnt enough, Dave Grohls Sound City players banded together to make an accompanying record the old-fashioned way. Director and mega-rocker Grohl appears on every track, changing up his involvement in each song. He drums, he riffs, he sings he is as much the heart and soul of this record as the Neve console that was artists careers. A variety of rockers are featured on the record, beginning with Rage Against the Machines Tim Commerford on the opening track, Time Slowing Down. Its slow to start, but the song eventually kicks in with a modern alternative feel. Segueing into Stevie Nicks contribution, You Cant Fix This, the mood changes decades with a s spirit taking over. Other notable tracks include From Can To Cant, which features Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour, and Mantra, which features Grohl, Queens of the Stone Ages Joshua Homme and Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor. The latter is an interesting mesh of Grohls gravelly voice and Reznors intricately dark, technologyinfused music. This is a clear standout on the record. It starts off soft, but by the end, it builds to a great crescendo. If one track were to sum up the experisoundtrack, its Cut Me Some Slack, which features Paul McCartney. As explained in the was purchased partially because of the desire to search for the next Beatles. Grohl and fellow Nirvana member Krist Novoselic play with McCartney on the rollicking, heavy track,ceating another standout song.

For ticket information, visit www.thehipp.org.Sound City: rock-doc music movies MIKE LLERENAAvenue WriterBeing funny is just another day in the life of Trevor Moore. Moore is the founder and leader of the comedy troupe Whitest Kids U Know and a regular correspondent on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He also co-directed, co-wrote and co-starred in the 2009 comThe Whitest Kids U Know son on the Independent Film Channel in June 2011. The troupe is on the East Coast leg of its 2013 North American tour, and will per form a comedy show at High Dive at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Tickets are available at www.TicketWeb.com. The Avenue sat down with Moore to talk about the tour, his upcoming comedy album Drunk Texts to Myself, (available March 26) and how life has been for WKUK since the ending of the show. Q : What can fans expect from your Gainesville perfor mance? A : We used to do the show as a live show before it was a TV show. ...We do popular sketches that weve had, sketches that have done well on YouTube. We also do some deep cuts from the TV show, ones that we like that are more obscure. Then, we also do some sketches that we cant really do on a TV show that work more as live pieces. Q : Since WKUK wrapped, how has the dynamic between the guys been? A : Our dynamic hasnt really changed a whole bunch. The biggest difference is that we all dont live in the same city. ...We all come together to do these tours. Weve been in this troupe for 13 years now, so its kind of like riding a bicycle. Q : Where does the inspiration for sketches come from? A : I like a lot of social commentary stuff. I guess I have a fairly apparent disdain for authority. I guess that would be the common thread with a lot of Whitest Kids stuff and the videos Im doing now. Q : What was the process of arranging songs and skits on your album Drunk Texts to Myself? A : Drunk Texts to Myself was fun because I tend to send myself drunk texts all the time like little messages or notes. Instead of writing things on the refrigerator door, Ill just text myself when Im drunk. But then the next day, I never understand what any of these things are. So, I just said, Im going to just take a bunch of them from the last six months and put them to a tune. So, those are all my actual drunk texts. Those are all real.Whitest Kids U Know talk comedy Grohl Moore

PHILLIP HEILMAN Alligator Staff Writer D.J. Durkin calls it good fortune. As one of two holdovers from Urban Meyers staff in 2010 Durkin has spent the past three seasons as linebackers coach and special teams coordinator with the Gators. But when defensive coordinator position with the Seattle Seahawks, coach Will Muschamp quickly prorole. Its good timing, I guess, I dont know, Durkin said of becoming Ive always tried to keep your head down and work as hard as you can, and deal with your players honestly and deal with other coaches honestly and just be who you are. And it really is, it is good timing. Durkin began his coaching career as a graduate assistant on Meyers Bowling Green staff in 2001. He also spent time as a defensive assistant at Bowling Green, as well as Notre Dame and Stanford before He has since made a name for himself by leading the Gators special teams, a unit that has been largely successful under his guidkicks, recovered four fumbles and scored two touchdowns on special teams. Durkin hopes to bring the mindset that made his special teams unit so successful to his defense. Youve seen the identity of our defense, what we as a staff have wanted to build here: We want to be a tough, blue-collar team, Durkin said. We want to play with unbelievable effort and enthusiasm in what were doing. Thats the way I coach. Thats my personality. Thats what I hope Ive carried over to our specials teams, and itd be the same thing with our defense. But Durkin has a tough act to follow. Quinns second season as defensive coordinator helped reviturnover margin, which was 113th enth-best margin in the nation and helping the Gators improve to 11-2.

CHUCK KINGSBURYAlligator WriterThe spotlight is shining brightly on the Gators. Not only does Florida hold the highest scores in each event in the NCAA, but its roster continues to improve as it reaches the end of the regular season. Led by senior Ashanee Dicker son, who has won nine individual titles and is seventh on vault in the nation with a 9.925 average, UF has built on its quality performances down the stretch. Looking at every competition weve had this year, every time we step away, no matter what the score was or who we were facing we always step away knowing we can do better, coach Rhonda Faehn said. the season proved that. Facing No. 14 Minnesota on March 1, Florida scored 198.425 points, the highest team score in a meet since 2004. Three of the last winners Alabama, which has won two national titles, and UCLA failed to top 197.875 during their championship seasons. The Crimson Tide recorded a season-high 197.85 against the Gators in the NCAA Super Six and put together a season-best total of 197.675 in 2011. UF has hit the 198 mark twice this season. Even though we had that great meet at Alabama and Minnesota, its fun to think that we have places to improve on, which is mind-boggling to me, Jamie Shisler said. We go into every competition knowing we can hit and knowing what we are capable of, and its a calming feeling. When Florida lost All-American Alaina Johnson to a lower-back injury on Jan. 25, it appeared the Gators would suffer a setback. Johnson, an all-around competitor, was instrumental in Floridas record-setting uneven bars performance against Missouri on Jan. 18, a week prior to her injury. But instead of stumbling down the stretch, the Gators grew stronger and used three program records to top Minnesota and prove they are worthy of their No. 1 ranking this season. They genuinely believe that theyre the best, Faehn said. 16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MARCH 14, 2013 Kelly Logan / Alligator Staff Gators peaking as postseason nears MAX MATTERNAlligator WriterWhen Sam Farrell ar rived at Florida, she wanted to be one of the best lacrosse players in the nation. Winning the Tewaaraton Award, considered the equivalent of the Heisman Trophy in college lacrosse, was her dream. Four years later, the senior has nearly reached her goal. Farrell was named to the Tewaaraton Award watch list on Feb. 22 along with teammates Kitty Cullen, Brittany Dashiell and Mikey Meagher. Farrell never thought she would be recognized nationally as a defender. Farrell came to Florida as a man and sophomore seasons, the coaches thought she could make a bigger impact playing the back line. Moving to low [defense] was one of the best things to happen to me, Farrell said. On Tuesday night, Farrell helped the UF defense shut half of an 18-2 win. Since that switch, Farrell the Gators defensive unit. She anchors the nations sixth-best scoring defense, which allows 6.67 goals per game. Being a part of a great defensive unit like this one makes it easier to get noticed, Farrell said. Farrell is one of four seniors that Florida had on the Tewaaraton Award watch list. Maryland was the only other team with that many. To have four young ladies represent the University is coach Amanda OLeary said. It says where we are within the country, but certainly, individual honors are great for these young ladies. Nationally, earning recogscore goals and record assists, and goalkeepers can boast a high save percentage. Farrell leads the team with 12 forced turnovers this season and is tied for third with 14 groundballs. Only nine of the 50 players on the list are defenders. Nevertheless, OLeary believes Farrell deserves recognition. She just goes out and works hard every single day, OLeary said. Those successes are from that hard work. I think shes the best defender in the country. With her, mediocrity is not an option.Senior anchoring Floridas defenseLACROSSE
