The insects will arrive in such numbers that people from North Carolina to Connecticut will be outnumbered roughly 600-to-1. Maybe more. Scientists even have a horrormovie name for the infestation: Brood II. But as ominous as that sounds, the insects are harmless. They wont hurt you or other animals. At worst, they might damage a few saplings or young shrubs. Mostly they will blanket certain pockets of the region, though lots of people wont ever see them. Its not like these hordes of cicadas suck blood or zombify people, says May Berenbaum, a University of Illinois entomologist. Theyre looking for just one thing: sex. And theyve been waiting quite a long time. Since 1996, this group of 1-inch bugs, in wingless nymph form, has been a few feet underground, sucking on tree roots and biding their time. They will emerge only when the ground temperature reaches precisely 64 degrees. After a few weeks up in the trees, they will die and their offspring will go underground, not to return until 2030. Its just an amazing accomplishment, Berenbaum says. How can anyone not be impressed? And they will make a big racket, too. The noise all the male cicadas make when they sing for sex can drown out your own thought and maybe even rival a rock concert. In 2004, Gene Kritsky, an entomologist at the College of Mount St. Joseph in Cincinnati, measured cicadas at 94 decibels, saying it was so loud you dont There are ordinary cicadas that come out every year around the world, but these are different. just how these bugs know its been 17 years, not 15 or 16 years, and its time to come out. These guys have evolved several mathematically clever tricks, Raupp says. These guys are geniuses with little tiny brains. Past cicada invasions have seen as many as 1.5 million bugs per acre. Of course, most places along the East Coast wont be so swamped, and some places, especially in cities, may see zero, says Chris Simon of the University of Connecticut. For example, Staten Island gets this brood of cicadas but the rest of New York City and Long Island dont, she says. The cicadas also live beneath the metro areas of Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington. While they stay underground, the bugs arent asleep. As some of the worlds longest-lived insects, they go through different growth stages and molt four times before ever getting to the surface. They lem. Then they go aboveground, where they molt, leaving behind a crusty brown shell and grow a half-inch bigger. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Got something going on? Want to see it in this space?

And these magicicadas are seen only in the eastern half of the United States and nowhere else in the world. There are 15 U.S. broods that emerge every 13 or 17 years, so that nearly every year, some place is overrun. Last year it was a small area, mostly around the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, West Virginia and Tennessee. Next year, two places get hit: Iowa into Illinois and Missouri; and Louisiana and Mississippi. And its possible to live in these locations and actually never see them. This years invasion, Brood II, is one of the bigger ones. Several experts say that they really dont have a handle on how many cicadas are lurking underground, but 30 billion seems like a good estimate. At the Smithsonian Institution, researcher Gary Hevel thinks it may be more like 1 trillion. Even if its merely 30 billion, if they were lined up head to tail, theyd reach the moon and back. There will be some places where its wall-to-wall cicadas, says University of Maryland entomologist Mike Raupp. Strength in numbers is the key to cicada survival: There are so many of them that the birds cant possibly eat them all, and those that are left over are free to multiply, Raupp says. But why only every 13 or 17 years? Some scientists think they come out in these odd cycles so that predators cant match the timing and be waiting for them in huge numbers. Another theory is that the unusual cycles ensure that different broods dont compete with each other much.

TUESDAY, MAY 14, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 MEET THE FLETCHERS CHARMAINE MILLERAlligator Staff WriterAfter a quarter-century of stopand-go studies at UF, a married couple turned their tassels and walked across the stage in the Stephen C. OConnell Center to receive their bachelors degrees. As Ian and Patrice Fletcher, 44 and 43, received their diplomas May 5, friends and family gathered to cheer them on. Their 4-year-old son, Joshua, watched from his wheelchair. The two met a week before Valentines Day at a UF Caribbean Students Association party in 1989. They started dating at the end of the semester. During the summer, Ian Fletcher spent some weekends driving to New York to visit Patrice. I was out of my mind. I was crazy, he said. By November, they were married. The photographer lost all of the wedding photos except one. It was the one that counted, Patrice Fletcher said. They were pictured standing together at the church altar. The newlyweds jumped back into studies at UF and tried to maintain their active student lives. She pledged with a sorority and juggled three jobs while he struggled with test anxiety. Ian Fletcher recalled his mind going blank in a statistics exam. In another math class, he He left school to take a break and she left nursing school in 1993 for a store management position. Back then, what we were going she said. So we gave up. They had a daughter, Julia, in 2000. Their son, Joshua, followed eight years later. But three weeks after Joshuas birth, Ian and Patrice Fletcher noticed he held his hands strangely. They took him to doctors to be tested, and he was diagnosed with a rare condition called spinal muscular atrophy. Joshuas brain functions normally, but he can only move his eyes. However, his sense of feeling is unaffected, and he can feel kisses from his mother and father. He points his eyes toward the top of his blueframed glasses for yes, and to the side for no. Although he had returned to his studies at UF in 2007, Ian Fletcher withdrew for the second time to tend to family responsibilities. We had to learn everything literally how to become medical associates for Joshua care, Ian Fletcher said. He returned to UF in the summer of 2009 to study sports radio and get working full time. When Patrice Fletcher came back to school in 2010, she said she expeAs other students pounded out class notes on laptops, she said she could barely keep up handwriting from the PowerPoint slides. But she kept the new degree in recreation, parks and tourism in sight, and she pulled her GPA up from below a 2.0. Now, shes focusing on her sons condition, and her husband now serves as vice president of workforce development for the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce. At the close of their college journey, the Fletchers are still there to support each other. They have a faith to keep them strong the Fletchers started a small church last year called Trinity Assembly Dream Center. And they agree theyve matured in more ways than one.

AMCs The Walking Dead was the most-watched series on cable and broadcast television for adults under 50. Historys The Bible closely followed The Walking Dead in total-viewer numbers. ABCs Last Resort, a series with a strong, compelling, go wherever the best content is, and right now, the best shows are cable shows. Comedies arent faring very well either. After this season is over, some of the biggest network comedies, New Girl and The Mindy Project both dipped in recent ratings. Times are tough for network comedies establish themselves, getting canceled due to low ratings despite comedic strength. ABCs Happy Endings was tradition of being the best show no one was watching, but hopes that it will be picked up by a cable network like Cougar Town could signal a steady shift of sitworks to secure advertising money as it becomes easier to watch shows on ones own schedule. Services like Hulu and making it less valuable to spend money to adverwatch them whenever you want without watching any of the commercials. Because of this, networks are strug$138 million, while NBC lost $35 period. As viewership declines, it to get advertisers to spend their money on network television. CBS bucks these trends, holding onto strong ratings ference between the strongest network, CBS, and the CBS renews its shows. Over time, their programming has gained the loyalty and viewership only time can give you. All indications point to network television being an industry in decline. Networks need to adapt to technolgramming to produce and let it stay on air long enough for audiences to grow.

ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator Staff Writer competition, a local barbershop quartet considers itself FOURTUNATE. Competing at the International Quartet Preliminaries and District Chorus Convention in Orlando last month, the four-man harmonies of FOURTUNATE earned the group seventh place out of 17 quartets. together, C.J. Shaw, 26, Bob Tucker, 57, Mike Roth, 61, and Tyson Adams, 46, were happy to have placed in the top 10. The competition was split over two days, and FOURTUNATE went to Orlando with one goal: to become International Quartet Preliminary Finalists and qualify to sing both days. C.J. Shaw, a music freshman at Santa Fe College, said he jumped out of his seat when he heard the news. I was so excited, he said. The whole audience could hear me. Perhaps it was the hours of practice the group put in every Sunday paying off, but Shaw said he spikes his hair with gel and drinks a Powerade for good luck. At the competition, FOURTUNATE sang Wait Till the Sun Shines Nellie, The Story of the Rose (Heart of My Heart), Old St. Louie and Bye Bye Blues in front of a crowd of about 1,000 people. Scores were based on singing, presentation and the categories of music. Bob Tucker, a UF accounting instructor and the baritone of the group, said he knew their group could be successful the moment They all became acquainted through the BarberGators barbershop chorus in Gainesville. The four men sang together randomly at a chapter meeting and liked what they heard. I remember that magical moment, Tucker said. In October 2012, they became Although they are a relatively new group, each member of FOURTUNATE has had outside signing experience separately. Shaw, the youngest of the group, began barbershop singing at the age of 16. Performing for so long, Shaw said he has outgrown stage fright. My natural place is on stage, he said. Roth, the tenor of the group with 20 years of barbershop singing experience, described the feeling of singing with FOURTUNATE as a buzz. With the really good quartets, there is just an energy in the sound, he said. We buzz more than we dont. Although they have only been a quartet for a short time, their relationship spans further than their harmonies. They laugh and joke as if they have known each other for decades. But the members of FOURTUNATE said they owe much of their success to their quartet coach, Don Clause, whom they consider a legend in the barbershop community. Hes written competition rules and coached winning quartets. Hes got that magic touch that inspires others to do better, Shaw said. Tyson Adams, the newest member to the barbershop community, said the other men in the group are what make being in a quartet the most fun. Adams said he used to enjoy singing for his own enjoyment but joining FOURTUNATE has changed his perspective. I saw how much people enjoyed it, and I realized its not all about me, he said. Its about [the audience] and making them happy. Contact Alexa Volland at avolland@alligator.org. KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Staff Writer youth baseball tournament facility was designed to boost tourism and bring out-of-town families to Newberry. ments hasnt gone as planned for some teams. Nations Park, 25325 SW 15th Ave., originalments. But recently, the facility announced it would condense all of the scheduled tournaments into one week in July. Bobby Holland, a general manager of Ripken Baseball a youth tournament organizer in South Carolina said he received complaints from people who planned to attend the Newberry tournament. They came to him looking for other options. The schedule change was announced via email, he said, without an explanation. He said most people plan for a travel-ball tournament nearly a year in advance, and last-minute scheduling changes can cause teams to cancel. I feel bad for them for the kids especially, he said. Its something you look forward to all year. Wayne Gomes, owner of Virginia Baseball Academy, was one of them. Gomes said he had planned to bring a team of 12 boys plus their families to Newberry for the week. But when he heard about the schedule change, he said they had to withdraw. Weve set these plans for six months, and now theyre telling us its not going to happen, he said. Parents are upset about it. Were disappointed. It was going to be our summer vacation. Gomes said they decided to pull out of the Newberry tournament because canceling work schedules on short notice would not be feasible for the dozen families involved. They cant just take off work, he said, noting that many extended family members had planned to accompany the players. In lieu of the Newberry tournament, Gomes said his team struggled to squeeze into another tournament and eventually found an opening in another state. Were still stuck with some plane tickets that we cant do anything about, he said. Jules Johnson, a baseball operations manager at the park, said the schedule switch was designed to give management time to improve minor aspects of the park. We have some infrastructure things that were taking care of, he said. Johnson noted that most participants made the switch with no problems. Were going to have one big shebang, he said. So far, the response has been great. Were really fortunate. However, he said he didnt know how exactly many teams were rescheduled over the four-week period. Mike Spina Jr., director of the Newberrybased Elite Pro Ball Academy, emphasized mal. Theyve got a couple things theyre working on before they let kids play on the ing Nations Park to Newberry. Its nothing serious just some irrigation. He said the parks goal is to optimize the facilities to not disappoint travelers. Theyre trying to make these premier down. They want the grass as green as possible. Although park management was professional and polite in handling the situation, Gomes said, perhaps the scheduling incident shows the new park was unprepared for the beginning of the season. I just wasnt willing to take that chance, he said. Maybe next year. 8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, MAY 14, 2013Courtesy to the AlligatorMike Roth, 61, C.J.

Leak earned the most valuable player award in the 2007 BCS National Championship. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff Writer In what was likely their last game in Gainesville, Floridas seniors emphatically ensured it wasnt their last game as Gators. By doing so, they also earned a chance to get revenge. Florida (18-2) thwarted a potent Denver (18-3) offense en route to a 16-5 win at Donald R. Dizney Stadium on Sunday as it advanced to the third round of the NCAA Tournament. Florida will play Syracuse for the fourth time in two years in a rematch of last years national semifinal.UF halts potent offense LANDON WATNICKAlligator Staff WriterA week after Florida granted his release to transfer, forward DeVon Walker had a change of heart. Walker will return to the Gators and has enrolled in summer classes in Gainesville, the school announced Monday. Florida is such a great place, and the more I thought about it, I just realized this is where I want to be, Walker said in a release. The coaching staff has helped me get better on and off the court over the past year and I really enjoy being around my teammates, so Im excited to refocus on my future here in Gainesville. Coach Billy Donovan added in a release: We always encourage guys to do what they feel is best for their future, and were glad that DeVon will be continuing with us here at Florida. Walker arrived at Florida in 2012 as the No. 142 recruit and No. 31 small forward in his class, according to Rivals.com. But the Winter Haven native rarely saw playing time outside freshman season. The 6-foot-6, 191-pound Walker scored 20 points, grabbed 17 rebounds, blocked four shots and averaged four minutes in 25 contests during his freshman season. Walker will compete with center Patric Young, senior forwards Will Yeguete and Casey Prather, transfers Dorian Finney-Smith and DamonWalker for playing time next season. His decision to return puts Florida at 12 scholarship players one below the NCAA maximum. Ogbueze to Charlotte: Former Florida point guard Braxton Ogbueze a Charlotte, N.C., native announced his decision on Monday to transfer to UNC Charlotte. Ogbueze will sit out a year, per NCAA transfer rules. He will have three years of eligibility starting the 2014-15 season and will enroll in summer classes at UNCC starting May 20. that was a big deal for me, Ogbueze said. Not only that, but going to a program that believes in and supports me. From Day 1, coach (Alan) Major, (assistant) coach (Ryan) Odom, ... (assistant) coach (Desmond) Oliver, (assistant) coach (Orlando) Vandross theyre familiar with my game and they know I can play. Thats just a Ogbueze also considered Murray State. He visited the UNC Charlotte campus with his mother last week. Charlotte originally recruited Braxton out of high school. Its closer to home. Its convenient for him, said Klem Ogbueze, Braxtons older brother. Also, hes playing for a program and a coach that really believes in him and wants to develop him as a player. Not only as a player, but as a person years after playing basketball. We felt like it was The school isnt too far from the house. Now we could see him play more often. Klem attended UNC Charlotte from 2007-2011. Braxtons older sister, Ana Ogbueze, also attended UNCC.

The Yellow Jacket smacked the ball into the net, giving Morgan the 6-2 win and increasing Floridas lead to 3-0. Brianna has been exceptional all year long, Thornqvist said.
