He was arrested and released after posting $25,000 bond, and pleaded not guilty on Monday. Levin was on probation for possession of a controlled substance and felony stealing in 2009. Authorities said Levins probation required he submit a urine sample as part of drug testing. Levin did not have a listed phone number. Court records show he does not yet have an attorney.

ASO Spokesman Art Forgey said Rowland didnt violate any policies and followed protocol when she reported the crash to FHP. She did nothing wrong, he said. Her choice of words were not well in that situation, but did it ultimately change the outcome? Absolutely not. Rowland and Pallett are both relatively new deputies, Forgey said. Rowland was hired in January 2012 and Pallett in September 2012. More-seasoned deputies may have called FHP sooner, Forgey said. However, Pallett and Rowland came to the right conclusion by eventually reporting the crash. State Attorney Bill Cervone agreed.

As part of the agreement, Lowes charges will be dropped if he completes a set of requirements under SAOs DUI Intervention Program, Cervone said. Since the program was initiated in 2007, about 200 people have successfully completed it, he said. To be eligible for the program, defendants must meet a series of requirements such as no previous DUI arrests and a blood alcohol content of less than 0.20 at the time of the arrest, Cervone said. Lowe had no criminal history before his arrest, and his BAC levels were reported to be .069 and .061 when he took Breathalyzer tests at the Alachua County Jail. When I saw that [Lowe] had been arrested, Cervone said, I assumed that he would probably qualify. Lowes lawyer, John Kearns, wrote a letter to Cervone March 26, requesting the agreement. Within a week, the agreement was signed, which Cervone said is a standard processing time. We dont dork around for months and months and have some resolution we couldve Robert Rush, a local defense attorney, said hes dealt with numerous DUI cases, and many of his clients have gone through the program. Considering the facts of Lowes arrest, Rush said, if Lowe werent the mayor, his case wouldve been handled the same way. It looked like a pretty routine treatment of somebody in his circumstances by the state atIn reference to Rowlands comments on the ASO video, Rush said theyre ambiguous. Because Rowlands not speaking about the night, Forgey said her remarks may be up to interpretation. Its something that we may never know the answer to, he said.

ANDREW KAYSAlligator Contributing WriterNeil deGrasse Tyson wants others to see the world like an astrophysicist. In his talk Wednesday night at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, Tyson explored sciences place in modern culture with more than 1,600 students. He addressed killer asteroids, todays American science as the audience giggled along with the famed scientist and public speaker. In the talk, Tyson showed how the United States is declining as a vival of a futuristic dream for tomorrow. We want to be a country that values the things that move us into the future that was imagined 20 or 30 years ago, he said. In addition to being the Director of the Hayden Planetarium in New and speaker who reduces complex nates with average people. One interjector called for him to run for president. Tyson declined, saying the relative shortness of politicians terms wouldnt I want to compel the electorate to vote for politicians who dream of the tomorrow, he said. He emphasized the power that science gives people in everyday life, and the ways the U.S. fails to take advantage of them. The laws of physics allow us to predict the future, Tyson said. It gives us control of things youd otherwise run from. In a Q-and-A session following his presentation, Tyson was asked about his inspirations, the meaning of happiness and ideas on religion Im pretty sure the universe called me, he said. Kurtis Lee loves to watch Tysons interviews on YouTube and was excited to see him speak in person. My favorite part was when he cline, the 20-year-old math sophomore said. But I think with the Brittany Natale, a 19-year-old business freshman, and Madalynn Dare, an 18-year-old statistics freshman, were just two of about 300 who sat on the Phillips Center lawn and watched Tyson on a projection.

THURSDAY, APRIL 4, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 THEY PLAN TO IMPROVE LOCAL CHILDRENS EATING HABITS. ANA KRSMANOVICAlligator Contributing WriterFor a while, academic research has said locally grown food promotes healthy living. Six UF students enrolled in the Fostering Sustainable Behavior: Local Food Systems honors class found an inexpensive way to transform this theory into social change. At the start of their semester project, these students studied the demographics of Gainesville communities and chose to focus on the Porters neighborhood. Their research showed that lower-income communities dont usually have the from healthy eating habits. The solution for implementing habitual change seemed obvious to them: Start with children. There are so many great things that come from working with kids, said Lauren E. Killer, an 18-year-old English and theatre freshman. It keeps kids active, and it keeps kids off the streets. The project creates a collaboration between Florida Organic Growers and the Porters Community Center. It aims to encourage Porters families to purchase locally grown food by subsidizing membership discounts. The students plan to improve the eating habits of local children by holding workshops about healthy foods, how to properly doing so, Killer said. The project is funded by a stipend. To measure the success of their initiative, the students plan to have the kids create a photo collage of their efforts, said 20-year-old industrial engineering sophomore Luis E. Suarez. Mariya Zarembo said if the program succeeds, she would like to expand it. We would love to have the people in the program, possibly in other communities as well, said the 19-year-old marketing sophomore. The students agreed the most attractive aspect of their initiative is its effect on the overall locality. Its about making the effort to help and appreciate the local community, Suarez said.

ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator WriterAnthony Rapp from the Tony Award-winning rock opera Rent will speak at UF April 18. Best known for originating the role of Mark Cohen in the Broadway production in 1996 and for reprising the role in the 2005 movie adaptation, Rapp will speak on a variety of topics including how art relates to society. Hosted by Reitz Union Board Entertainment and Accent Speakers Bureau, the free event will be at 8 p.m. in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom. Jordan Fine, co-director for RUB Entertainments Arts Committee, said there will be wristbands for the event. However, RUB is still determining how and when they will be distributed. Fine said RUB considered several artists. We wanted to cater to a very wide audience, and I feel like Anthony Rapp was a good choice, said the 20-yearold digital arts and sciences engineering junior. Rapp will be paid $15,000 to speak. To warm up for the event, RUB Entertainment will show Rent at the Reitz Union Cinema at 10 p.m. April 16. Lindsey Dresbach looks forward to seeing Rapp. Having seen the show on Broadway when she was 12, Dresbach said she still likes to listen to the movie soundtrack. I would love to see him, said the 20-year-old telecommunication sophomore. Honestly, I think he portrayed the character perfectly.

KATIE BURNSAlligator Contributing WriterA like. A share. A friend. A follower. Although social media is a tool for spreading information, a recent study questions whether Facebook is being used to spread racism. People are more likely to say things on the Internet, email or even text that they wouldnt be willing to say otherwise, said David Markus, an anthropology doctoral candidate who teaches undergraduate courses in race and racism. The study, published in the journal Computers in Human Behavior, questioned 623 Internet users. About 95 percent of participants had a current Facebook account and monitored their reactions to racist or supremacist posts, according to a Salon article. Bruce Floyd, UFs social media specialist, said social media is used to make things easily shared and commented on. In the study, the researchers found frequent Facebook users were more likely to join negative messages or trends to feel included. Markus said this concept is congruent with trends in society, but he warns that posts on the Internet are sometimes just meant to illicit reactions. While these big events do trigger massive shifts in perspective, in a lot of ways, people dont know the opinions on every subject or didnt know prior to the access of social media, he said. Sean Quinn is the chairman of Action SG, an agency that promotes transparency, accountability and service in UFs Student Government. Quinn works directly with social media and works to gage trends on campus. The computer adds a level of obscurity, the 20-year-old political science and public relations junior said. Markus agrees, but does not think the context of the conversation about racism can be solved by using the backspace button. Racism is not a thing that will easily be overcome, he said. Combatting the trends that we may see can be done using the same tools, but in an age of immediacy ... thats not going to happen.Social media may up racism I would love to see him.Lindsey DresbachUF telecommunication studentFloyd

Marriage equality is an issue of faithOn Tuesday, a fellow columnist wrote an open letter to Bill OReilly (a more apt title would have been Are you there, Bill? Its me, Erik.) criticizing him for not defending traditional marriage. He posited that although Christians believe we should love and accept everyone, its OK to also believe that traditional marriage is between only a man and a woman. He also argued that the federal recognition of gay marriage as a legal union would soon lead to, say, the federal government also recognizing polygamy, bigamy and incest. This claim is obviously an outlandish argument that doesnt belong in the discussion. If Skipper bothered to pay attention to the oral arguments in court or familiarize himself with what overturning Proposition 8 would mean, hed know that the debate is centered solely on extending marriage rights to same-sex couples. He has no proof to uphold his speculative argument that gay and lesbian marriages will ultimately lead to polygamous and incestuous relationships becoming recognized as legal unions. Furthermore, it is highly insensitive and insulting for a man who claims to maintain Christian values of love and acceptance to group homosexual relationships with incest. It is not unlike Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, grouping homosexuality with bestiality and necrophilia. So, Skipper, I ask you: Whats your beef with marriage between two consenting adults? In an excellent piece The New Yorker posted Monday titled Wedding Bells, legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin discussed the Supreme Courts 2003 case Lawrence v. Texas, in which the court ruled that Texass anti-sodomy law demeans the lives of homosexual persons. It was inevitable, Toobin wrote, that the Supreme Court would face a decision regarding gay marriage. To recap, the Supreme Court hearings regard Californias Proposition 8, a a woman, and the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which bars the federal government from recognizing samesex marriages even in states where theyre legal. After reading Skippers column, one would come to the states tomorrow, but that, unfortunately, isnt whats happening. Still, the stakes in the two cases remain huge, Toobin wrote. Edith Windsor, the eighty-three-year-old plaintiff in the DOMA case, had to pay three hundred and sixty-three thousand dollars in extra taxes after her wife died, because, under the law, the federal government did not recognize their marriage. DOMA also penalizes gay people by preventing them from receiving Social joint federal tax returns, obtaining green cards for their spouses, addition to these practical considerations, there is the matter of the Supreme Courts acknowledging the capacity of gay people for commitment and love. The Republicans only arguments against gay marriage that its been illegal for so long and it makes some people uncomfortable will not hold up in the Supreme Court. fenses of traditional marriage, the cases for the overturning of Proposition 8 and DOMA grow stronger. Not even the Supreme Court, Toobin wrote, can reverse the march toward equality. So, to people like Skipper, theres only one solution for your discomfort with gay marriage: Get over it. If you dont agree with gay marriage, dont enter into one. Its that simple. Nothing I write in defense of gay marriage will be as eloquent and succinct as Louis C.K.s thoughts on the matter, however. He said, people try to talk about it like its a social issue. Like when you see someone stand up on a talk show and say, How am I supposed to explain to my child that two men are getting married? I dont know, its your sh***y kid, you f***in tell em. Why is that anyone elses problem? Two guys are in love, but they cant get married because you dont Chloe Finch is a journalism sophomore at UF. Her column runs Thursdays.Times Are AChanging: AP changed its tuneAs journalists, we try to stay on top of the latest trends, but we also pay close attention to the news that goes on in the journalism world. This week, The Associated Press released a surprising and potentially controversial change to its stylebook. The AP Stylebook is the book of vocabulary, grammar and punctuation guidelines and rules for all journalists. It makes you constantly doubt yourself, because it knows everything, and it makes you feel like you know nothing. We call it the journalists Bible, because, like the Holy Bible, quoting it makes you sound Beyond being useful for grammar tips, the stylebook also contains the proper terms to call everything. A decision by Associated Press to stop using the term illegal immigrant continued to generate debate Wednesday, with the move attracting support and derision, according to a Los Angeles Times report. The Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, which advocates for measures to combat illegal immigration, said it will begin using the term illegal invaders, according to the report. William Gheen, the groups president, called APs decision a Big Brother move. The term immigrant should be reserved for people who came to this country legally, he told The Times on Wednesday. Many members of the media seem to be trying to spin this decision from the AP as a way to control the immigration debate. Then why did the service discontinue that vocabulary? The discussions on this topic have been wide-ranging and include many people from many walks of life, according to a release written by the APs Senior Vice President and Executive Editor Kathleen Carroll. (Earlier, they led us to reject descriptions such as undocumented, despite ardent support from some quarters, because it is not precise. A person may have plenty of documents, just not the ones required for legal residence.) Also, we had in other areas been ridding the Stylebook of labels, continued the release on the companys blog. The new section on mental health issues argues for using credibly sourced diagnoses instead of labels. Saying someone was diagnosed with schizophrenia instead of schizophrenic, for example. And that discussion about labeling people, instead of behavior, led us back to illegal immigrant again. We concluded that to be consistent, we needed to change our guidance. So we have. Fox News wondered something about the decision that, in turn, made us wonder about Fox News. Some are wondering why the AP decided to nix the phrase problem with it, stated the article. And that means no one else can have a problem with it? The AP isnt the only entity rethinking the term. The (New York) Times, for the past couple of months, has also been considering changes to its stylebook entry on this term and will probably announce them to staff members this week, wrote public editor Margaret Sullivan. Do you agree with the APs decision, or do you think it was a wrongful attempt to drive a national discourse? Chloe Finchopinions@alligator.org

A sneak peak of the shorts can be viewed at www.disney.com, where Disney has posted Croissant de Triomphe, a short that takes place in France. The three-minute short follows Mickey as he runs desperately through Paris, trying to deliver croissants to Minnie Mouse at her cafe. The other shorts follow Mickey through a variety of places including Venice, Italy; Santa Monica, Calif.; Tokyo; New York; Beijing and the Alps. In these new environments, Mickey will face challenges with the help of his old friends Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Minnie Mouse, Goofy and Pluto. sodes will premiere on the Disney Channel, but can also be seen on www.disney. com or through the WATCH Disney Channel mobile app. These shorts remind us of how Mickey Mouse came to represent the happiest place on earth.

Your girlfriend could be lying when she says, Oh baby, oh baby, you rocked my world, so go with your gut and be observant of her body language. Rushing to home base usually means youre not doing so great down there. If you re tion comes from your partner speaking up, which your girlfriend did.

Dear Friend, This column is tastefully disgusting. On Tuesdays, I bang out the answers to these questions with complete bliss. I like being vulgar and confessing grody things that need to be addressed because no one else will do it. Thats what I promise to bring to the table each week. As nasty as it may seem, thats life: sexual insecurities, messy relationships, one-night-stands, bad sex and farts. Its not classy, but we all have questions. I dont use a pen name because I am proud of how I respond to the weird things in my inbox. The best feeling is seeing people read this column and tell me they laughed at a certain question or they enjoyed it.

PHIL HEILMANAlligator Staff WriterAs she has throughout the WNIT, Sydney Moss dominated for most of Wednesday night. Unfortunately for the Gators, her teammates failed to provide the balanced attack that had proved so successful during postseason play. Moss notched a double-double, scoring 20 points and grabbing 10 rebounds, but Florida (22-15) was eliminated with a disheartening 6757 loss to Drexel in the Final Four of the WNIT in the Daskalakis Athletic Center. half, coach Amanda Butler said of Moss. I think she got a little tired in the second half. It was not any secret that we were short manned Moss entered Wednesday averaging 19.5 points per game during Floridas WNIT run and single-handedly kept the Gators within The freshman guard scored 16 of her teambest 20 points on 7-of-9 shooting prior to halftime. But the rest of the Gators struggled to score, making only 6 of their 18 attempts from lead on a three-pointer by Meghan Creighton for much of the second half. of slowing it down and milking that shot clock Hollie Mershon was Drexels catalyst throughout the game. As instrumental as Moss has become for the Wednesday averaging a team-best 19.4 points per game this season and continued her strong play against Florida, scoring a game-high 28 points on 10-of-18 shooting. Florida has faced multiple talented midproved to be the best. rounded, Butler said. Youve got to give her a lot of credit. Mershon is very special, and they deserved to win tonight. Floridas improbable postseason run followed a disappointing regular season. Southeastern Conference and won only 5 of its But after looking listless in many contests, the Gators thrived during the WNIT, helping erase the memory of a tumultuous regular season. Florida earned victories against Florida International, Winthrop, Charlotte and James Madison becoming only the second team to win four consecutive road games to make the Final Four of the WNIT since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 2010. nifer George, who ended her UF career with 10 points and three rebounds in the loss from guard Jaterra Bonds said.

On Wednesday, the rain followed the Gators to Gainesville. No. 3 Florida (36-3, 10-2 Southeastern Conference) picked up a 2-1 game against UCF (18-21, 1-11 Conference USA). The game ended in confusion as rain poured down on Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium in the middle of a Florida rally. The Gators had scored 6-1 lead. But with one out, the rain started coming down heavily and the game was called minutes later. We were waiting on the bases for about like 5 minutes in the rain, and we didnt know what was goSchwarz said. Then everyone in the dugout started running for the tarp, so we kind of knew it was over. Coach Tim Walton added: With the halted game rule, it always reverts back to the last completed inning. So Im not confused as far as the outcome of hate to put that much time into a game and have it shortened by weather. Lauren Haeger drew walks and Briana Little got on base due to catchers interference, loading the bases for Jessica Damico. Damico drew one of Floridas three RBI walks, but it was the only one that would count. In the second inning, Kirsti Merritt drew a one-out walk and Stewart doubled, sending Merritt to third base. Home-plate umpire Diane Kendall called an illegal pitch on UCF hurler Mackenzie Audas, bringing Merritt in for the games second run. Thats been our M.O. We manufacture a lot of runs, Walton said. Whether its by hit, whether its by walk, hit by pitch. We had a lot of different ways we were doing things. Audas did not let the Gators take the bats off their shoulders often. Of the 33 batters the sophomore righthander faced, 11 struck out and 12 batters did not put the ball in play. Even in the four-run sixth inning Gators did not record a hit.

16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, APRIL 4 2013 JOE MORGANAlligator Staff WriterFlorida ranked fourth nationally in rushing defense last season, surrendering only 94.5 yards per game on the ground. Defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd was the driving force. The junior recorded 46 tackles, including a team-best 13 tackles for loss. His three sacks and six quarterback hurries both ranked second among Gators. pick in this months NFL Draft, Floyd that also lost nose tackle Omar Hunter and Buck linebacker Lerentee McCray. He held that spot down, senior defensive tackle Damien Jacobs said of Floyd. Ive got a lot of respect for him as a player. Jacobs, nose tackle Leon Orr and freshmen Darious Bear Cummings and Joey Ivie will shoulder the responsibility of creating penetration and anchoring the middle, as Floyd and Hunter did last season. The departed interior duo combined for 86 tackles, 17 tackles for loss, three sacks, six quarterback hurries, four pass breakups, two blocked kicks and a forced fumble in 2012. Jacobs desire to make Floyd proud has been a driving force this offseason. He expects a lot out of me because he left it over to me, Jacobs said. Its real, real big. I know how he would feel if I wasnt to hold it down. Jacobs has impressed this spring, builda junior, he recorded 10 tackles, 2.5 sacks and a quarterback hurry in a reserve role. Damien Jacobs is playing very well, Muschamp said. Consistently, through 12 practices, hes improved himself, and hes gotten better. Muschamp wants consistency from named Cummings and Orr as two players who need to improve before fall. Muschamp said defensive end Dominique Easley would move inside, creating room for sophomore Jonathan Bullard at end. Easley started 12 games at defensive tackle as a sophomore in 2011. Right now, if we had to start the season, Dominique would play inside, Muschamp said. Contact Joe Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
