JULIA GLUMAlligator Staff Writerjglum@alligator.orgCarlos Aguilar was in Gainesville this time last year, too. Aguilar took his son Christian to UF Preview. Both were excited for the future Christian would start in Summer B. Someone even snapped a picture of the grinning new Gator, wearing a nametag and clutching a Preview tote bag. On Tuesday, Carlos Aguilar wore a white shirt bearing that picture as he sat in the Alachua County Courthouse in a case management hearing for Pedro Bravo, the 19-year-old accused of killing his son. Michael Ruppert, the third lawyer Bravo has had since the case began about 10 months ago, told Judge Peter Sieg he needed time to take the depositions of 110 witnesses. Sieg decided the court would reconvene Aug. 27 despite State Attorney Brian Kramers objection to a delay. Aguilar said he was pleased with Kramers attempt to move things along. I want to make sure that the message is clear sent to the judge that we want this set for trial, Aguilar said. And that were ready. And that we know that he is guilty of the crime that he committed. According to court records, Bravo is charged with kidnapping, homicide, lying to police, providing false reports, mishandling human remains, tampering with physical evidence, and poisoning food and/or water with the intent to kill or injure a person. 93 /70 FORECAST 2 OPINIONS 6 the AVENUE 11 CLASSIFIEDS 17 CROSSWORD 20 SPORTS 21VOLUME 107 ISSUE 153 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 2013 Alex Catalano / Alligator StaffNineteen-year-old Pedro Bravo, accused of kidnapping and killing UF student Christian Aguilar in September, arrives to his case management hearing Tuesday in the Alachua County Courthouse. Defense lawyer Michael Ruppert asked for more time to collect depositions. The next case management hearing will be Aug. 27. Pedro Bravo hearing delayed until August RESIDENTS EXPRESSED CONCERNS. HANNA MARCUSAlligator Staff WriterThe Alachua County Commission voted in a meeting Tuesday to approve a special exception that would allow solar panels on a parcel of land in Paynes Prairie. The plan for the land, named Prairie View Solar Park, is to construct a 1.5-megawatt ground-mounted solar panel system that would feed directly into the existing Gainesville Regional Utilities grid. The proposal sets aside about 9 acres located in the 2300 block of Southwest 63rd Avenue. However, the company constructing the panels, Sybac Solar, plans to use only about a 5-acre fenced area. While the motion was recommended for approval at a previous meeting, it faced opposition by commissioners and the community. Residents previously expressed concerns including noise and negative visual effects related to the project. In response to the concerns, the commission proposed buffer zones at the north and east boundaries of the plot. Susan Baird, a county commissioner, who cast the only dissenting vote, said she appreciated the steps being taken to protect the land and ease complaints, but she said she wouldnt vote in favor of the motion because other locations are available for the project. place for the panels? she said. It seems like we are leaving a large footprint on a beautiful piece of land when there are other places already established. John S.

Not so fast. UFs Ph.D. program in economics is not accepting applicants for the upcoming school year. Roger Blair, the department of economics chairman, said funds to accommodate new students will not be provided, but Ph.D. students currently enrolled in the program are not being cut off. The program hasnt been canceled, but in a sort of de facto way it has because without funding, you cant have a Ph.D. program, Blair said. When it came time to allocate funds for supporting the Ph.D. students, we were told that no funds would be allocated. UF Warrington College of Business Administration Dean John Kraft wrote in an email that the department was offered the opportunity to move to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences but opted to remain within the business college and become smaller. In the future, they will be able to offer a business economics major and graduate courses as needed, he said in the email. This strategy is consistent with the colleges strategy of downsizing to better service the development needs of students, faculty and staff. There are 27 students in the Ph.D. program, according to the departments website. Having senior faculty members teach such small classes can get expensive, Blair said, but losing the program will impact the entire business college.UF Ph.D. economics program denied funding, forced to downsizeSEE PHD, PAGE 4 SEE SOLAR, PAGE 4 I want to make sure that the message is clear sent to the judge that we want this set for trial.

All parties involved in the project, including Gary Dounson & Associates, Prairie View Trust, Friends of Paynes Prairie, GRU and Sybac Sotemporary. The proposed plan would allow solar panels on the land for 20 years. After that, the panels would be removed, and the land would be donated to the organization Friends of Paynes Prairie. Star Tarrant, the current president of Friends of Paynes Prairie, said she supports the project. During a public comment segment, she said that after moving to Gainesville in 1997 from a metropolitan area, she began to love how green the city was, and she said project will help maintain the atmosphere.

Ph.D. students also teach economics electives. This school year, there will be nine sections entirely staffed by them. If I didnt have those Ph.D. students, those courses couldnt be offered because everybody is already assigned, Blair said. Economics professor Larry Kenny said the departments faculty is dwindling. When I was chairman for six years back in the 90s, Were at 11, and were slated to go to half that. Kenny said the absence of a Ph.D. program might reduce the faculty even further. There are a large number of faculty who basically enjoy working with Ph.D. students and would not be interested in working with just undergraduates, Kenny said. Blair said that of the 62 members of the Association of American Universities, the only ones without Ph.D. programs in economics are Case Western Reserve University, Emory University and now UF.

THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 UNIVERSITY CLUB APARTMENTS THE ESTATES great location to campus + multiple bus routes + roommate matching available short-term leases available + individual leases + private living + fully furnished Letter to the EditorBlackface is unacceptable, period The question posed in the title of a Tuesday opinion column, Should you be able to wear black face? seemed fairly simple and not up for debate as the answer should have been an obvious absolutely never. But apparently that wasnt the case after reading the article. There is something problematic with the liberal idea that racist and oppressive acts should go unsanctioned because of precious civil liberties and individual rights. Whether youre wearing blackface, leading a neoNazi march or any other white supremacist event, the idea that somehow you should be given the space simply because of freedom of speech and the right to assemble is an asinine one. Oppressive acts that intentionally target oppressed groups on campus shouldnt be endorsed, and even if the university is constitutionally unable to sanction individuals for racist acts, in rhetoric, these acts should be denounced. By simply saying that freedom of speech allows for students to don blackface or advocate for Nazism on Turlington if they choose to show the lack of awareness of the sensitivities of non-white students on campus. Individuals who safe within the construct of whiteness have the ability to be seen as individuals and arent inundated with images throughout their whole life of their race being demonized and satirized for entertainment. So its not surprising that those removed can come from the neutral standpoint that even if what youre saying is bigoted I support your right to say it. My opinion on the matter is that not only will I denounce racist acts but I refuse to be liberal and support your right to denigrate my race. And for the writer of the column to say that students on campus took the conversation in the wrong direction is laughable. You can don blackface and use the nword when institutionalized racism isnt still a present thing affecting black people. Until then, I dont give a s--about your freedom of speech, which only seeks to slander me. Eric Brown is a UF political science sophomore.

Meet Message to Venus at upcoming Gainesville show KC O WENSAvenue WriterI enjoy being in college, but it can be stressful at times. After a long semester of studying, I like to let loose, have fun and see new places via traveling. The problem is that travel is expensive nowadays. You have to be creative and resourceful if you want to save money on things like airfare, accommodations and the day-to-day expenses of being on the road. Ive gone traveling several times throughout the past four years, and Ive been to nine countries in Europe. I carry about 10 pounds of gear when I backpack across the continent, and I spend about $50 a day, which includes lodging. Tickets for planes and trains usually add up to about $2,000 or a little less. If you plan your trip and research ways to save money, then you can have lots of fun traveling even on a limited budget. Handling Your Finances While Traveling: Invest in a credit card: When you travel, you have to take very good care of your money because chances are you dont have much of it. According to the www.creditcardinsider.com, one thing that helps young travelers is having a credit card on hand. It is very useful during these times because you never know when you might run out of cash in a foreign country. Fortunately, ATMs are everywhere, so your card can be a good safety net for you while youre gone. Last year I wanted to go backpacking around Europe but didnt have the money to do so. I had saved up some money from working part time but not nearly enough to fund an international trip. So I took a friends advice and applied for a student credit card. This allowed me to travel for a whole month and not worry about running out of money, matically and pickpocketers looking for people with cash. Now, Im not suggesting that all travelers need a credit card, but it has a lot of perks that have helped me with my vagabond experiences as a frugal traveler. Cheap Accommodations, From Hotels to Hostels: Hotels can be expensive, so I never end up staying in one when I travel. Even so-called budget hotels often cost more than $100 per night, and this can quickly strain the budget of any college student. Instead, I always try to stay at youth hostels. You can research hostels online or in travel books, or you can compare a group of hostels on various sites. This will also let you easily locate the nearest hostel wherever you are. Most hostels charge very reasonable rates usually less than $40 per night. I would recommend they are even cheaper. Hostels differ in terms of size, amenities ing popular travel seasons, so its a good idea to book in advance. If you arrive at the last bling. Hostels are great places to meet other travelers and will often have coupons to help you save on food and beverages. They are usually centrally located near train stations or city centers. Working While Traveling: Its not as simple as applying overseas. If you want to travel for an extended period of time, such as the whole summer, you may want to work in order to make some spending money. However, as in most countries, you need a work visa to legally work. Yet there are usually opportunities to pick up casual work. This depends on the place and time of year of course, but restaurants and bars are great spots for students. Another possibility in some places is tutoring students in English. This is especially true in Asian countries, where English teachusually have to be arranged ahead of time, yourself to a bar owner or to the manager at your hostel. I have tried this several times, and it can be done.Budget-savvy tips for the college student with wanderlust travel Owens

KATHLEEN BOYLEAvenue WriterAccording to some historical legend, 16th century Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon made a remarkable discovery in Yucatan, Mexico: the Fountain of Youth. This is a pool of water so restorative that the consumption of the native potion could, as documented by writers and contemporary historians of Ponce de Leons years, work miracles as it rejuvenated the bodies of aged men. Yet as time has and will continue to tell, this myth, like many others, maintains its breath in the push and pull between hope and reality. at the heart of The Quest for the Fountain of Youth in Florida History, Mythology and Art, an art exhibition at the Thomas Centers main gallery through June 22. The exhibition presents a group of artworks created by contemporary Florida artists that excavate numerous interpretations of the Fountain of Youths relationship to the sunshine state. A project that distinguishes the 500th anniversary of Ponce de Leons arrival to Florida shores, it is part of a statewide commemoration of this important event. The majority of the artwork cally for this project and was selected according to artist proposals ry.

The exhibition was organized mentation, continuation, popular culture, mythology and geology. Each of these themes is introduced with a text panel that explains to visitors the ways in which the selected ideas not only connect the Fountain of Youth to the state of Florida but also provide openended prompts for artistic translation. What really stands out within the exhibition is a collection of artworks which are unpredictably harmonious in their perception of the Fountain of Youths possibilities. Cultural Affairs Programs Coordinator for the city of Gainesville Department of Parks and Recreation and Cultural Affairs, Russell Etling oversees the programming of the Thomas Center galleries. Etling said Mallory OConnor, curator of the The Quest for the Fountain of Youth in Florida History, had been organizing this exhibition for a couple of years. Funded by the Florida Humanities Council, this exhibition is tioning ways in which Floridas history and cultural identity shape public perceptions of the state. The artworks in the exhibition mobiles of found objects to digital displays, Etling said. And the torical subjects to wonderful photographs, such as those by Gary Monroe of senior citizens exercising on the beach. Other highlights of The Quest for the Fountain of Youth in Florida History include, but are certainly not limited to, Gainesville artist Margaret Ross Tolberts enormous oil and canvas composition entitled Silver Glen Well (2012), a delectably abstract painting engulfed by a rich wash of sweeping brushstrokes. The work shares a wall with two acrylic paintings by artist John Wilton of DeLand. Using a much Wiltons paintings Searching and Finding employ the silhouette of a scuba diver adrift in a concept of the unknown, which is posited both below and above the waters surface. Such works are a few of the many examples of visual diversity presented within the exhibition. The thing about Florida is that people have been coming here for decades to kind of reEtling said. So even though there isnt an actual fountain, there is a metaphorical one in what Florida means to people. The Quest for the Fountain of Youth in Florida History, Mythology and Art was curated by Mallory OConnor of Oconnorart, LLC and ran as a collaborative with an exhibition hosted at the Doris Bardon Community Cultural Center in Gainesville. A traveling show composed of 30 works selected from the two exhibitions is also planned to tour throughout Florida this year.12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 2013Kathleen Boyle / AvenueThe Quest for the Fountain of Youth in Florida History, Mythology and Art has become a visually enticing addition to the Thomas Center.

THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 13 LINDSEY CARMANAlligator BloggerTrends sometimes no one knows what to think about them. They either can be very ingenious fashion pieces, or they can make you think, What the hell is this crap? Once a trend fades out, it usually never comes back but not for certain accessories and clothes. Some are coming back this fall, according to ELLE magazine. And they arent the awesome trends that most of us love. Here are the top 11 trends that should have stayed dead: 11. The Trucker Hat: Um, this was a trend? For 13-year-old girls maybe. But apparently the trucker hat was seen in Marc Jacobs line this season and has made a comeback. This look could be pulled off at the beach or on a casual shopping work any other time. 10. Overalls: Annnnnd its back this trend is by far one of the worst. Nothing can make overalls appear attractive. (Well, maybe Victoria Beckham) But denim overalls are very in this season and are even being paired with cropped blazers and heels. 9. Colored Mascara: Wearing colored mascara can be a cute trend. Shades like plums and violets look exceptionally well during the nighttime especially girls with green, brown or hazel eyes so this trend isnt awful. However, it can look amateur if you wear wild colors, so watch out for too much overload. 8. The Logo Sweater: Fashion clothing lines like Nasty Gal have made logo sweaters popular again. Donning hilarious sayings or your favorite super hero can be tastefully done or can be a huge disaster. And the wilder the saying the better. 7. Bootcut Jeans: It is true. Bootcut jeans are back. But this trend should be worn sparingly (e.g. work and other business events). Honestly, this trend depends on the girl and whether the bootcut style looks good on her. 6. The White Heel: I think this trend came back only because its summer time and due to the fact that The Great Gatsby movie is out. White heels are old-fashioned and are nothing compared to black heels. This trend should have stayed dead. 5. The Perm: Fact: Nobody gets perms anymore. Or should I say instead, nobody should get perms anymore. Curls have always had a way of weaving in and out of style, but getting a perm is going too far. 4. The Crop Top: Due to the amount of midriff baring this trend promotes, crop tops should have never come back. Not only does it not serve a purpose, but it also doesnt look good. Who wants to wear an expensive shirt that comes with half the material youre supposed to get? 3. The Plaid Flannel: This trend isnt too bad. But the fall and winter. At least you can pair this with a cute pair of jeans and combat boots and still look cute. 2. White Eyeliner: Eyeliner is made black for a reason. Do I need to go any further? 1. Hair Mousse: I dont think hair mousse ever went out of stylebut OK. For the naturally curly-haired women, this is great news. Not only can you save yourself from spending an excessive amount of time on your hair, but you will also look great tossing in some mousse and showing off those gorgeous curls.Beware: 11 trends that should have died with the decade best of the blogs

CHLOE FINCHAvenue WriterGainesville Community Playhouses membership director Susan Christophy hosted the Playhouses first Directors Showcase on Saturday at the Vam York Theater at 4039 NW 16th Blvd. The event aimed to educate Gainesville residents interested in becoming involved with the 2013-2014 lineup of plays and musicals. From acting and singing to set and costume design to advertising and ushering, everyone, regardless of experience, was welcome to participate. Community theater is how the everyday person can involve himself in the arts and be creative, Christophy said. We create art here, and we do it together. Auditions for Ken Ludwigs comedy Lend Me a Tenor, directed by Carlos Francisco Asse, will be held June 23-24, and the show runs from Sept. 13-29. This humorous tale depicts a historic night at the Cleveland Opera Company, where world-famous tenor Tito Morelli is scheduled to perform in Otello. Through a series of mishaps, Morelli receives a double dose of tranquilizers, causing the house manager to believe he is dead, which results in a chain reaction of slapstick humor and mistaken identity. Rhonda Wilson will direct Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flahertys Seussical, a musical adaptation combining several of Dr. Seuss most beloved childrens stories. Auditions will be held on Aug. 25-26, and the show runs Nov. 29 to Dec. 22. (Seussical) is an adult show with childlike elements, Wilson said. It mixes gospel and pop as well as elements of traditional musical theater. Dan Christophy will direct Aida, based on the book by David Henry Hwang, Linda Woolverton and Robert Falls. With lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Elton John, this pop opera tells the story of an enslaved Nubian princess, Aida, who falls for the captain of the guard Radames. He is betrothed to an Egyptian princess Aidas mistress. Auditions take place at the Gainesville Community Playhouse on Nov. 10-11, and the show runs from Jan. 31 to Feb. 23. Erin Kleim will direct Noises Off. Its Michael Frayns comedy about a play within a play starring a second-rate company of hopelessly unprepared British actors on opening night of their poorly written show. Auditions will be held Jan. 12-13, and the show runs from March 28 to April 13. Auditions for Stephen Sondheims Into the Woods, directed by Margery Pierson, will be held March 9 -10, and the show runs May 23 to June 15. A childless baker and his wife attempt to lift their familys curse by journeying into the woods, where they encounter a range of classic fairy tale characters, from Rapunzel to Red Riding Hood to Cinderella. The final show of the year, directed by Susan Christophy, the 1976 Tony Award winner for best musical, A Chorus Line, about a group of 17 Broadway dancers who bare their souls as they audition for an unnamed Broadway musical. Auditions will be held May 4-5, and the show runs July 18 through August 10, 2014. For the 2013-2014 season, the Gainesville Community Playhouse is replacing Wednesday night performances with an extra Saturday matinee.

SHUCK REPLACED 2-YEAR OLD O!O GARDEN GRILLE. KATHLEEN BOYLE Avenue WriterAttention Midtown Gainesville prowlers: A new destination is making waves on your stomping ground, and its in your best interest to take note. Shuck Raw Bar and Seafood Restaurant has moved into the hut and patio space formerly known your gullets and satisfy your spirits with food and drinks. The core of Shucks offerings is largely based on Key West sensibilities. From raw, fresh shucks to specialty oysters garnished with citrus relish, the menu boasts an array of options that bring an essence of salt air to the swamp. But for those who have an aversion to the slimy, chewy texture of mollusks, plenty of other options are offered that may better appeal to your senses. Crispy buffalo calamari, macsandwiches and the traditional Cobb salad are a few of the alternative selections available to savor. Shuck is in the heart of Midtowns nightlife destinations, near The Swamp Restaurant and right behind 101 Cantina. As a result, this spot takes on a Jekyll and Hyde persona. The relaxed sunlit atmosphere amps up its energy as the night creeps into at the outdoor bar illuminated by lantern string lights draped in tree branches. Well aware of the neighborhoods literal night-and-day contrast, Shuck embraces the transition with a daily toast of complimentary shots at sunset for all guests 21 and older. Shuck furthers the Midtown reputation as the neighborhood to see and be seen by employing a bar and wait staff that is very friendly, extremely attractive and primarand short khaki shorts. Combine this broadcast various sporting events, and it doesnt take very long to detect the type of demographic this watering hole is targeting. Because of this, Shuck is probably not the best choice place to discover your next romance, chill with a big group of friends or kick back with your steady sweetheart on a lazy afternoon. 16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 2013Kathleen Boyle / AvenueCustomers at Shuck Raw Bar and R estaurant in Midtown sit outside watching TV at the bar and chatting among friends. They can enjoy seafood and drinks there and a free shot at sunset. Seafood restaurant Shuck brings Key West flavors, vibes to Midtown This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 22-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, I really want to hook up with this guy Ive because I cant tell how big or small his penis is. It would be terrible if it was small after all of this buildup. Whats a girl to do? Dear Friend, It is unfair that guys know what theyre getting when they go home with a girl. You know how big her boobs are, and the rest is pretty easy to guess. Girls can only nic background and even the size of their hands it gets pretty desperate. I like to think Im good at guess ing the size of a guys junk, but its a superpower I know Ill never fully obtain. Find out whats beneath those pants. It is a major disappointment when your expectations are not met, but what if its everything you imagined it would be? What if its even better than you had imagined? And what if someone else got to it Dear Mediocre Advice, I love my guy friends, but recently Ive no ticed that theyre into these dumb, bland girls. I dont understand it. Who are these girls, and how are they getting all of the good guys? Dear Friend, These girls are called basic b------s. How their dry personalities and average faces get the most sought-after guys is an enigma. Without fail, each encounter with a basic b---is painfully boring. Its accept able to be jealous even if youre not into the guy shes with because its an insult if someone who is as exciting as a vegeta ble gets more attention than you. Perhaps their vaginas have a built-in Brookstone massager. Its either that or some involve ment in black magic or sorcery. Dear Mediocre Advice, Whats your number? Dear Friend, I dont understand the question, and I wont respond to it, is what Lucille Bluth from Arrest ed Development would say in this situation. But here are some actually interesting numbers: 2 packages of bacon I have in my fridge right now. Its not enough, I know. 8 number of crop tops I own. I thought I would have more, too. 3 the amount of times I watched Titanic in theaters. 5 the amount of times I thought there was a spider on my leg while driving. 5 the amount of times there was actually just a strand of hair on my leg and not a spider. ARIEL BARNESAvenue Writer Company, sets the bar for Japanese cuisine. He has trained alongside Japanese Iron Chef Masaharu Moage of 21. This year he was named a Best Chef by Best Chefs best chefs. He may seem intimidating when youre on the other side of the sushi line, but getting him to crack a smile is easier than you may think. Leung grew up in Hong Kong playing ping-pong for fun and always had the best lunch of all of his classmates. They looked at me weird because I had the weird food, Leung said. While the other kids ate ham-andcheese sandwiches, Leungs lunchbox conasked about his most recent success, winning the Iron Chef Gainesville competition, he claims he was not nervous. Its what we do every day. Its just cooking. Were in there for one reason to strive and cook with our heart, he said. The judges at the competition may have seemed intimidating, but Leung disagreed. No one there was better than anybody. Once youre in the kitchen, you get to work, he said. You grind and try to produce food out of love. The dynamics of leading a kitchen has little to do with food. Its not about cooking; its about people-managing, he said. Its important to understand your crew and each and every single personality throughout the kitchen. After the win, members of the kitchen returned to the restaurant. Employees applauded, praising every member as they walked through the doors. They cheered as Leung raised his echoed throughout the restaurant until closing. On Leungs days off, he sleeps in and watches TV like everyone else. Golf tees are scattered around his apartment like worked for 90 consecutive days. It was a piece of cake, he said. Its because I was committed, passionate and driven. For those looking to pursue a career in the culinary arts, Leung said, Youre in or youre out. You have to be fully committed, and you have to love it. There is no thinking that it might work. No one wants to eat food prepared by a mediocre chef.Ray Leung, top chef Leung

THE SENIOR WON HIS SECOND STRAIGHT NCAA OUTDOOR TITLE IN THE TRIPLE JUMP ON SATURDAY. GORDON STREISANDAlligator Writer The college career of one of Florida athletes has come to a close. Omar Craddock, an All-American triple at Florida with a bang last Saturday in Eugene, Ore., at the 2013 NCAA Outdoor Championships. the South Region Mens Field Athlete of the Year, jumped an all-conditions personal best distance of 16.92 meters. Oddly enough, he had already clinched the event victory his second consecutive at NCAA Outdoors before he took the jump. that fueled Florida to its second consecutive outdoor title. After his jump, the Gators rallied to tie Texas A&M by earning 28 out of a possible 30 points. My plan was to defend my title and get the A standard for Worlds this summer, Craddock said. I did one of those and theres time for the other. I wanted to get 10 points for my team and I did that. die (Lovett) and the relays, and I think I helped. In Craddocks four years at UF, he has (three indoor, two outdoor), while winning three individual titles himself. All of his individual titles have come in the last two years. defending both his Southeastern Conference and NCAA titles from the previous outdoor season. Hes really grown as a person here, coach Mike Holloway said. If you talk to Omar, the most gratifying thing from him is that hes always found a way to get it done when it counts. Even when Christian (Taylor) and Will (Claye) were here, he was always a presence. Now, those guys left, their shadow is gone, and it was Omar Craddocks turn. More than his success on the track, Craddocks savvy has been a boon for a very young team. He knows how to explain to the lower classmen what to expect from the program and how we operate here, Holloway said. Hes very passionate. In our team meetings, I let him talk to the team about how we do things here at Florida. Thats very helpful to me and the staff to have people come in and buy into what we do. Craddocks last two NCAA titles bumped Floridas winning streak up to seven in the mens triple jump a streak Claye. The impact they left on Craddock Being here at Florida has meant so much, Craddock said. Im so grateful, fortunate and glad to have been granted the opportunity to be at Florida and train with some of the best jumpers in NCAA history like Christian, Will, and now, Marquis (Dendy). ... Ill never forget the memories Ive created, the teammates Ive trained with and the chance to have been a part of history.Craddock wraps up college career with event title RICHARD JOHNSONAlligator WriterWhen former Florida catcher Mike Zunino was drafted third overall in last Junes MLB First-Year Player Draft, it was assumed he would make it to the big leagues eventually. Few could envision it happening this quickly. After one year and six days, Zunino rocketed through the Seattle Mariners minor league system and was called up to the majors on Tuesday. Zunino made his MLB debut Wednesday night, starting at No. 6 in the batting order in Seattles home matchup against the Houston Astros. The only other catcher on the Mariners depth chart is Kelly Shoppach. I dont think I could have pictured this a year ago, that this is where Id be, Zunino told Greg Johns of MLB.com. Its exceeded everything Ive ever dreamed of. So Ill just embrace it and take it as it comes. Zunino was brought up for Zunino promotedPhoto Courtesy of UF Communications TRA CK & FIELD GORDON STREISANDAlligator Writer The hopes of capturing another outdoor championship lied on the shoulders of a freshman. Arman Hall anchors the mens 4x400m relay As a 19-year-old competing at the historic Hayward Field for the NCAA Championships, Hall wasnt stage. I dont think it was too intimidating for me, Hall said. It just made me excited. Again, Im a team out to win a national championship for the second year in a row is a great feeling. Hall was at the center of the now infamous Texas A&M baton drop. He was issued a sizable lead to tain it. The only thing on my mind was winning, said Hall. I saw to second leg. All I had to do was win it for my team. He did just that, ending the competition with a season-best At the start of the season, Hall wasnt anchoring the event. But he was destined to, according to coach Mike Holloway. Hes my fastest quarter-miler, Holloway said. Freshman anchor seals NCAA titleHall SEE HALL, P AGE 22 SEE ZUNINO, P AGE 22

22, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 2013 Hall ready for USA Outdoor Track and Field ChampionshipsWhen he walked on campus, he wanted to be the anchor man. Indoors, he was a little dinged up. Outdoors, I anchored Dedric Dukes because he had more experience and was healthier. I said (to Hall), When youre ready to anchor, let me know. After the Texas Relays, he said he was ready. Hes been on ever since, and I think people saw why. Aside from his speed, Halls poise is one of the main reasons why he anchors the 4x4 as a freshman. Hall, Dukes and Hugh Graham Jr. grew up in South Florida and competed at world tournaments together. We all knew how it felt to be on a big stage three of us were on the world team, Hall said. Going on the world circuit really helped me with the 4x4 anchoring and being on the big stage itself. Hall attributes his success at UF to Holloways hands-on coaching style. Coach Holloway is the main reason I came here, Hall said. He takes his time to help us train and (explain) the race model he wants us to do. He makes sure were in our comfort zone when we run. It seems Hall is pretty comfortable anchoring the 4x4. and Field Championships one week away, theres only one thing left on Halls mind. All I know is that were getting rings, he said. HALL, from page 21necessity. The Mariners have had a revolving door at catcher this season. Jesus Sucre fractured his hand after being hit by a bat June 4 and was placed on the 15-day DL. Sucre appeared in eight games for Seattle. One-time top prospect Jesus Montero is also injured, and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks after tearing his meniscus. Montero was recently demoted to Triple-A Tacoma after tallying a .208 batting average and three home runs in 29 games. He may face suspension thanks to his alleged involvement with a Miami Biogenesis clinic. The veteran Shoppach has appeared in 35 games behind the plate for the Mariners with less than stellar results, hitting .196 and only .056 with runners in scoring position. Brandon Bantz was called up on June 5 and was designated for assignment less than a week later on June 11. In one game, he went 0 for 2 at the plate. With Bantz off of the major league roster and a catching platoon in turmoil, Seattle called up Zunino because it did not have many other options. He came into professional baseball as a highly touted prospect, winning the Dick Howser Trophy, Golden Spikes Award and Johnny Bench Award in his junior year. At Florida, Zunino was also a two-time All-American.. He is now the sixth player from the 2012 draft to make it to the Major League level. Prior to his call-up on Tuesday, Zunino was hitting .238 with 43 RBIs and 11 home runs for Triple-A Tacoma. Hes a mature kid, Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said. We were all impressed with what he did in spring training. But I dont think anybody here is expecting miracles. Were not looking like hes the answer. Were just looking as we put this together and where were at right now, we know hes going to be a guy that is counted on going forward, and its the right thing to do at this time for him. So well bring him up here, give him a chance to play and see how it works out.

A day after Tim Tebows release from the New York Jets, the Omaha Beef an indoor football team in Nebraska offered the former Florida quarterback a roster spot and $75 per game. Forty-one days later, the New England Patriots trumped the Beefs offer, signing Tebow to a two-year, non-guaranteed contract. ESPNs Ed Werder broke the story Monday afternoon, and immediately, our Facebook and Twitter feeds exploded. Tebowmania is a big deal since ESPN tells us it is so now its our turn to take a stab at it. As the hysteria slowly dies down for the time being, alligatorSports assistant editor Landon Watnick and alligatorSports.org editor Chuck Kingsbury will debate if Tebow will succeed Landon: Tebowmania is shallow and pedantic at this point, but I actually think Timothy Tebow can bring something positive to the table for an NFL team. Media gluttony aside, Tebow can only help the Patriots. Not only is he a great teammate, but hes a great athlete. He proved that in his second season with the Denver Broncos. He was erratic throwing the football in 14 games in 2011-12, but he doesnt have to play quarterback under coach Bill Belichick. As a 6-foot-3, 236-pound bruiser, he has a good mix of physicality and agility to play tight end, fullback or running back. I have faith in what Belichick will do with him. Dont forget Josh McDaniels, Tebows former coach in Denver, will be calling the plays. And you know how much of a man-crush McDaniels has on Tebow. the Pats, but hell only experience moderate success. To be fair, anything compared to his last season with the Jets would be considered a success. Im about to drop possibly the worst pun in the history of sports, but its time for a Boston Tea-bow Party. Chuck: Dont ever drop a pun again, or Ill drop you. If the New England Patriots and more importantly, Belichick were seriously considering Tebow for a spot on its 53-man roster, he wouldve been signed to a contract with guaranteed money. Without it, hes at as much of a risk of being cut as the other 19 undrafted rookie free agents. And the deal wont even cost New England a ham sandwich if it parts ways with Tebow before the start of the preseason. But hey, the Patriots may be trying to prove a point. With a twoyear deal worth $630,000 in base salary in 2013, Tebow could be a low-risk, high-reward player. But this seems like a short-lived favor from Belichick to Urban Meyer. Landon: Chuck, the only things youve been dropping lately are deuces. Tebow basically dropped one last season in New York. He was pretty bad in limited minutes, but in all fairness, so was his offensive line the entire year. If Tebow does see snaps at running back or that department in New England. Throughout his career, hes only prospered with a good offensive line. In 2011-12, the Broncos led the league in rushing offense with 2,632 yards mostly because of the offensive lines success at run blocking. Tebow rushed for 660 yards that year on only 122 carries. Sure, he might have to adjust to learning success getting carries at the goal line or in the but 200-250 yards on the ground and 3-4 rushing touchdowns would constitute a successful season. If he does switch to running back, I see Tebow accomplishing that. Tebow has the size to potentially be a dangerous target at tight end. Id really have to see Tebow get some reps in practice at the position before I determine if he can catch a pass. If he pushes his quarterback dreams to the curb, Tebow could be one of many valuable weapons for Tom Brady. Chuck: Ask Brady if hes cool sitting out a snap or two for Tim Tebow. Belichick may project him at tight end despite his lack of suddenness and its a blueprint that has worked well with few players in recent memory, most notably Mike Vrabel, who lined up at tight end in sub-packages in the red zone during his eight years in Foxborough. But Vrabel was also the starter at weak side linebacker, too. Lets face it Tebows last stand will be in New England. His window is closing rapidly, and the idea that the Patriots would even consider sitting him behind Brady for grooming Tebows poor footwork hasnt gotten any better since his freshman season at UF. He doesnt go through his progressions. He drifts in the pocket waiting for a receiver to come create plays instead of operating within an offenses structure. His mechanics havent improved. And he couldnt hit water if he was sitting in a pool. With Ryan Mallet on the depth chart, the Patriots reserved just two roster spots for quarterbacks in 2012. There is no chance in hell Belichick clears roster space for a third. Even if he changes positions, Tebow will be at a disadvantage sitting behind both Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez arguably the best tight-end combination in the league. I have no faith in Tebow as a potential inline blocker, nor do I think he can gain separation off the line of scrimmage if he were to make the transition to tight end. Quite frankly, he has a better shot long snapping. But hey, at least hes a little bit closer to Canada, right? Contact Landon Watnick at lwatnick@alligator.org.

On Tuesday, Carlos Aguilar wore a white shirt bearing that picture as he sat in the Alachua County Courthouse in a case management hearing for Pedro Bravo, the 19-year-old accused of killing his son. Michael Ruppert, the third lawyer Bravo has had since the case began about 10 months ago, told Judge Peter Sieg he needed time to take the depositions of 110 witnesses. Sieg decided the court would reconvene Aug. 27 despite State Attorney Brian Kramers objection to a delay. Aguilar said he was pleased with Kramers attempt to move things along.

Defense lawyer Michael Ruppert asked for more time to collect depositions. The next case management hearing will be Aug. 27. Pedro Bravo hearing delayed until August RESIDENTS EXPRESSED CONCERNS. HANNA MARCUSAlligator Staff WriterThe Alachua County Commission voted in a meeting Tuesday to approve a special exception that would allow solar panels on a parcel of land in Paynes Prairie. The plan for the land, named Prairie View Solar Park, is to construct a 1.5-megawatt ground-mounted solar panel system that would feed directly into the existing Gainesville Regional Utilities grid. The proposal sets aside about 9 acres located in the 2300 block of Southwest 63rd Avenue. However, the company constructing the panels, Sybac Solar, plans to use only about a 5-acre fenced area. While the motion was recommended for approval at a previous meeting, it faced opposition by commissioners and the community. Residents previously expressed concerns including noise and negative visual effects related to the project. In response to the concerns, the commission proposed buffer zones at the north and east boundaries of the plot. Susan Baird, a county commissioner, who cast the only dissenting vote, said she appreciated the steps being taken to protect the land and ease complaints, but she said she wouldnt vote in favor of the motion because other locations are available for the project. place for the panels? she said.

Not so fast. UFs Ph.D. program in economics is not accepting applicants for the upcoming school year. Roger Blair, the department of economics chairman, said funds to accommodate new students will not be provided, but Ph.D. students currently enrolled in the program are not being cut off. The program hasnt been canceled, but in a sort of de facto way it has because without funding, you cant have a Ph.D. program, Blair said. When it came time to allocate funds for supporting the Ph.D. students, we were told that no funds would be allocated. UF Warrington College of Business Administration Dean John Kraft wrote in an email that the department was offered the opportunity to move to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences but opted to remain within the business college and become smaller. In the future, they will be able to offer a business economics major and graduate courses as needed, he said in the email. This strategy is consistent with the colleges strategy of downsizing to better service the development needs of students, faculty and staff. There are 27 students in the Ph.D. program, according to the departments website. Having senior faculty members teach such small classes can get expensive, Blair said, but losing the program will impact the entire business college.UF Ph.D. economics program denied funding, forced to downsizeSEE PHD, PAGE 4 SEE SOLAR, PAGE 4 I want to make sure that the message is clear sent to the judge that we want this set for trial.

THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 UNIVERSITY CLUB APARTMENTS THE ESTATES great location to campus + multiple bus routes + roommate matching available short-term leases available + individual leases + private living + fully furnished Letter to the EditorBlackface is unacceptable, period The question posed in the title of a Tuesday opinion column, Should you be able to wear black face? seemed fairly simple and not up for debate as the answer should have been an obvious absolutely never. But apparently that wasnt the case after reading the article. There is something problematic with the liberal idea that racist and oppressive acts should go unsanctioned because of precious civil liberties and individual rights. Whether youre wearing blackface, leading a neoNazi march or any other white supremacist event, the idea that somehow you should be given the space simply because of freedom of speech and the right to assemble is an asinine one. Oppressive acts that intentionally target oppressed groups on campus shouldnt be endorsed, and even if the university is constitutionally unable to sanction individuals for racist acts, in rhetoric, these acts should be denounced. By simply saying that freedom of speech allows for students to don blackface or advocate for Nazism on Turlington if they choose to show the lack of awareness of the sensitivities of non-white students on campus. Individuals who safe within the construct of whiteness have the ability to be seen as individuals and arent inundated with images throughout their whole life of their race being demonized and satirized for entertainment. So its not surprising that those removed can come from the neutral standpoint that even if what youre saying is bigoted I support your right to say it. My opinion on the matter is that not only will I denounce racist acts but I refuse to be liberal and support your right to denigrate my race. And for the writer of the column to say that students on campus took the conversation in the wrong direction is laughable. You can don blackface and use the nword when institutionalized racism isnt still a present thing affecting black people. Until then, I dont give a s--about your freedom of speech, which only seeks to slander me. Eric Brown is a UF political science sophomore.

Meet Message to Venus at upcoming Gainesville show KC Owens WENSAvenue WriterI enjoy being in college, but it can be stressful at times. After a long semester of studying, I like to let loose, have fun and see new places via traveling. The problem is that travel is expensive nowadays. You have to be creative and resourceful if you want to save money on things like airfare, accommodations and the day-to-day expenses of being on the road. Ive gone traveling several times throughout the past four years, and Ive been to nine countries in Europe. I carry about 10 pounds of gear when I backpack across the continent, and I spend about $50 a day, which includes lodging. Tickets for planes and trains usually add up to about $2,000 or a little less. If you plan your trip and research ways to save money, then you can have lots of fun traveling even on a limited budget. Handling Your Finances While Traveling: Invest in a credit card: When you travel, you have to take very good care of your money because chances are you dont have much of it. According to the www.creditcardinsider.com, one thing that helps young travelers is having a credit card on hand. It is very useful during these times because you never know when you might run out of cash in a foreign country. Fortunately, ATMs are everywhere, so your card can be a good safety net for you while youre gone. Last year I wanted to go backpacking around Europe but didnt have the money to do so. I had saved up some money from working part time but not nearly enough to fund an international trip. So I took a friends advice and applied for a student credit card. This allowed me to travel for a whole month and not worry about running out of money, matically and pickpocketers looking for people with cash. Now, Im not suggesting that all travelers need a credit card, but it has a lot of perks that have helped me with my vagabond experiences as a frugal traveler. Cheap Accommodations, From Hotels to Hostels: Hotels can be expensive, so I never end up staying in one when I travel. Even so-called budget hotels often cost more than $100 per night, and this can quickly strain the budget of any college student. Instead, I always try to stay at youth hostels. You can research hostels online or in travel books, or you can compare a group of hostels on various sites. This will also let you easily locate the nearest hostel wherever you are. Most hostels charge very reasonable rates usually less than $40 per night. I would recommend they are even cheaper. Hostels differ in terms of size, amenities ing popular travel seasons, so its a good idea to book in advance. If you arrive at the last bling. Hostels are great places to meet other travelers and will often have coupons to help you save on food and beverages. They are usually centrally located near train stations or city centers. Working While Traveling: Its not as simple as applying overseas. If you want to travel for an extended period of time, such as the whole summer, you may want to work in order to make some spending money. However, as in most countries, you need a work visa to legally work. Yet there are usually opportunities to pick up casual work. This depends on the place and time of year of course, but restaurants and bars are great spots for students. Another possibility in some places is tutoring students in English. This is especially true in Asian countries, where English teachusually have to be arranged ahead of time, yourself to a bar owner or to the manager at your hostel. I have tried this several times, and it can be done.Budget-savvy tips for the college student with wanderlust travel Owens

KATHLEEN BOYLEAvenue WriterAccording to some historical legend, 16th century Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon made a remarkable discovery in Yucatan, Mexico: the Fountain of Youth. This is a pool of water so restorative that the consumption of the native potion could, as documented by writers and contemporary historians of Ponce de Leons years, work miracles as it rejuvenated the bodies of aged men. Yet as time has and will continue to tell, this myth, like many others, maintains its breath in the push and pull between hope and reality. at the heart of The Quest for the Fountain of Youth in Florida History, Mythology and Art, an art exhibition at the Thomas Centers main gallery through June 22. The exhibition presents a group of artworks created by contemporary Florida artists that excavate numerous interpretations of the Fountain of Youths relationship to the sunshine state. A project that distinguishes the 500th anniversary of Ponce de Leons arrival to Florida shores, it is part of a statewide commemoration of this important event. The majority of the artwork cally for this project and was selected according to artist proposals ry. From painting to photography and realism to abstraction, the 62 that the subject of youth is merely a concept relative to beholders and open to interpretation. The exhibition was organized mentation, continuation, popular culture, mythology and geology. Each of these themes is introduced with a text panel that explains to visitors the ways in which the selected ideas not only connect the Fountain of Youth to the state of Florida but also provide openended prompts for artistic translation. What really stands out within the exhibition is a collection of artworks which are unpredictably harmonious in their perception of the Fountain of Youths possibilities. Cultural Affairs Programs Coordinator for the city of Gainesville Department of Parks and Recreation and Cultural Affairs, Russell Etling oversees the programming of the Thomas Center galleries. Etling said Mallory OConnor, curator of the The Quest for the Fountain of Youth in Florida History, had been organizing this exhibition for a couple of years. Funded by the Florida Humanities Council, this exhibition is tioning ways in which Floridas history and cultural identity shape public perceptions of the state. The artworks in the exhibition mobiles of found objects to digital displays, Etling said. And the torical subjects to wonderful photographs, such as those by Gary Monroe of senior citizens exercising on the beach. Other highlights of The Quest for the Fountain of Youth in Florida History include, but are certainly not limited to, Gainesville artist Margaret Ross Tolberts enormous oil and canvas composition entitled Silver Glen Well (2012), a delectably abstract painting engulfed by a rich wash of sweeping brushstrokes. The work shares a wall with two acrylic paintings by artist John Wilton of DeLand. Using a much Wiltons paintings Searching and Finding employ the silhouette of a scuba diver adrift in a concept of the unknown, which is posited both below and above the waters surface. Such works are a few of the many examples of visual diversity presented within the exhibition. The thing about Florida is that people have been coming here for decades to kind of reEtling said. So even though there isnt an actual fountain, there is a metaphorical one in what Florida means to people. The Quest for the Fountain of Youth in Florida History, Mythology and Art was curated by Mallory OConnor of Oconnorart, LLC and ran as a collaborative with an exhibition hosted at the Doris Bardon Community Cultural Center in Gainesville. A traveling show composed of 30 works selected from the two exhibitions is also planned to tour throughout Florida this year.12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 2013Kathleen Boyle / AvenueThe Quest for the Fountain of Youth in Florida History, Mythology and Art has become a visually enticing addition to the Thomas Center.

THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 13 LINDSEY CARMANAlligator BloggerTrends sometimes no one knows what to think about them. They either can be very ingenious fashion pieces, or they can make you think, What the hell is this crap? Once a trend fades out, it usually never comes back but not for certain accessories and clothes. Some are coming back this fall, according to ELLE magazine. And they arent the awesome trends that most of us love. Here are the top 11 trends that should have stayed dead: 11. The Trucker Hat: Um, this was a trend? For 13-year-old girls maybe. But apparently the trucker hat was seen in Marc Jacobs line this season and has made a comeback. This look could be pulled off at the beach or on a casual shopping work any other time. 10. Overalls: Annnnnd its back this trend is by far one of the worst. Nothing can make overalls appear attractive. (Well, maybe Victoria Beckham) But denim overalls are very in this season and are even being paired with cropped blazers and heels. 9. Colored Mascara: Wearing colored mascara can be a cute trend. Shades like plums and violets look exceptionally well during the nighttime especially girls with green, brown or hazel eyes so this trend isnt awful. However, it can look amateur if you wear wild colors, so watch out for too much overload. 8. The Logo Sweater: Fashion clothing lines like Nasty Gal have made logo sweaters popular again. Donning hilarious sayings or your favorite super hero can be tastefully done or can be a huge disaster. And the wilder the saying the better. 7. Bootcut Jeans: It is true. Bootcut jeans are back. But this trend should be worn sparingly (e.g. work and other business events). Honestly, this trend depends on the girl and whether the bootcut style looks good on her. 6. The White Heel: I think this trend came back only because its summer time and due to the fact that The Great Gatsby movie is out. White heels are old-fashioned and are nothing compared to black heels. This trend should have stayed dead. 5. The Perm: Fact: Nobody gets perms anymore. Or should I say instead, nobody should get perms anymore. Curls have always had a way of weaving in and out of style, but getting a perm is going too far. 4. The Crop Top: Due to the amount of midriff baring this trend promotes, crop tops should have never come back. Not only does it not serve a purpose, but it also doesnt look good. Who wants to wear an expensive shirt that comes with half the material youre supposed to get? 3. The Plaid Flannel: This trend isnt too bad. But the fall and winter. At least you can pair this with a cute pair of jeans and combat boots and still look cute. 2. White Eyeliner: Eyeliner is made black for a reason. Do I need to go any further? 1. Hair Mousse: I dont think hair mousse ever went out of stylebut OK. For the naturally curly-haired women, this is great news. Not only can you save yourself from spending an excessive amount of time on your hair, but you will also look great tossing in some mousse and showing off those gorgeous curls.Beware: 11 trends that should have died with the decade best of the blogs

CHLOE FINCHAvenue WriterGainesville Community Playhouses membership director Susan Christophy hosted the Playhouses first Directors Showcase on Saturday at the Vam York Theater at 4039 NW 16th Blvd. The event aimed to educate Gainesville residents interested in becoming involved with the 2013-2014 lineup of plays and musicals. From acting and singing to set and costume design to advertising and ushering, everyone, regardless of experience, was welcome to participate. Community theater is how the everyday person can involve himself in the arts and be creative, Christophy said. We create art here, and we do it together. Auditions for Ken Ludwigs comedy Lend Me a Tenor, directed by Carlos Francisco Asse, will be held June 23-24, and the show runs from Sept. 13-29. This humorous tale depicts a historic night at the Cleveland Opera Company, where world-famous tenor Tito Morelli is scheduled to perform in Otello. Through a series of mishaps, Morelli receives a double dose of tranquilizers, causing the house manager to believe he is dead, which results in a chain reaction of slapstick humor and mistaken identity. Rhonda Wilson will direct Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flahertys Seussical, a musical adaptation combining several of Dr. Seuss most beloved childrens stories. Auditions will be held on Aug. 25-26, and the show runs Nov. 29 to Dec. 22. (Seussical) is an adult show with childlike elements, Wilson said. It mixes gospel and pop as well as elements of traditional musical theater. Dan Christophy will direct Aida, based on the book by David Henry Hwang, Linda Woolverton and Robert Falls. With lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Elton John, this pop opera tells the story of an enslaved Nubian princess, Aida, who falls for the captain of the guard Radames. He is betrothed to an Egyptian princess Aidas mistress. Auditions take place at the Gainesville Community Playhouse on Nov. 10-11, and the show runs from Jan. 31 to Feb. 23. Erin Kleim will direct Noises Off. Its Michael Frayns comedy about a play within a play starring a second-rate company of hopelessly unprepared British actors on opening night of their poorly written show. Auditions will be held Jan. 12-13, and the show runs from March 28 to April 13. Auditions for Stephen Sondheims Into the Woods, directed by Margery Pierson, will be held March 9 -10, and the show runs May 23 to June 15. A childless baker and his wife attempt to lift their familys curse by journeying into the woods, where they encounter a range of classic fairy tale characters, from Rapunzel to Red Riding Hood to Cinderella. The final show of the year, directed by Susan Christophy, the 1976 Tony Award winner for best musical, A Chorus Line, about a group of 17 Broadway dancers who bare their souls as they audition for an unnamed Broadway musical. Auditions will be held May 4-5, and the show runs July 18 through August 10, 2014. For the 2013-2014 season, the Gainesville Community Playhouse is replacing Wednesday night performances with an extra Saturday matinee.

SHUCK REPLACED 2-YEAR OLD OO!OO GARDEN GRILLE. KATHLEEN BOYLE Avenue WriterAttention Midtown Gainesville prowlers: A new destination is making waves on your stomping ground, and its in your best interest to take note. Shuck Raw Bar and Seafood Restaurant has moved into the hut and patio space formerly known your gullets and satisfy your spirits with food and drinks. The core of Shucks offerings is largely based on Key West sensibilities. From raw, fresh shucks to specialty oysters garnished with citrus relish, the menu boasts an array of options that bring an essence of salt air to the swamp. But for those who have an aversion to the slimy, chewy texture of mollusks, plenty of other options are offered that may better appeal to your senses. Crispy buffalo calamari, macsandwiches and the traditional Cobb salad are a few of the alternative selections available to savor. Shuck is in the heart of Midtowns nightlife destinations, near The Swamp Restaurant and right behind 101 Cantina. As a result, this spot takes on a Jekyll and Hyde persona. The relaxed sunlit atmosphere amps up its energy as the night creeps into at the outdoor bar illuminated by lantern string lights draped in tree branches. Well aware of the neighborhoods literal night-and-day contrast, Shuck embraces the transition with a daily toast of complimentary shots at sunset for all guests 21 and older. Shuck furthers the Midtown reputation as the neighborhood to see and be seen by employing a bar and wait staff that is very friendly, extremely attractive and primarand short khaki shorts. Combine this broadcast various sporting events, and it doesnt take very long to detect the type of demographic this watering hole is targeting. Because of this, Shuck is probably not the best choice place to discover your next romance, chill with a big group of friends or kick back with your steady sweetheart on a lazy afternoon. 16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 2013Kathleen Boyle / AvenueCCustomers at Shuck R Raw Bar and R R estaurant in Midtown sit outside watching TV at the bar and chatting among friends. They can enjoy seafood and drinks there and a free shot at sunset. Seafood restaurant Shuck brings Key West flavors, vibes to Midtown This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 22-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, I really want to hook up with this guy Ive because I cant tell how big or small his penis is. It would be terrible if it was small after all of this buildup. Whats a girl to do? Dear Friend, It is unfair that guys know what theyre getting when they go home with a girl. You know how big her boobs are, and the rest is pretty easy to guess. Girls can only nic background and even the size of their hands it gets pretty desperate. I like to think Im good at guess ing the size of a guys junk, but its a superpower I know Ill never fully obtain. Find out whats beneath those pants. It is a major disappointment when your expectations are not met, but what if its everything you imagined it would be? What if its even better than you had imagined? And what if someone else got to it Dear Mediocre Advice, I love my guy friends, but recently Ive no ticed that theyre into these dumb, bland girls. I dont understand it. Who are these girls, and how are they getting all of the good guys? Dear Friend, These girls are called basic b------s. How their dry personalities and average faces get the most sought-after guys is an enigma. Without fail, each encounter with a basic b---is painfully boring. Its accept able to be jealous even if youre not into the guy shes with because its an insult if someone who is as exciting as a vegeta ble gets more attention than you. Perhaps their vaginas have a built-in Brookstone massager. Its either that or some involve ment in black magic or sorcery. Dear Mediocre Advice, Whats your number? Dear Friend, I dont understand the question, and I wont respond to it, is what Lucille Bluth from Arrest ed Development would say in this situation. But here are some actually interesting numbers: 2 packages of bacon I have in my fridge right now. Its not enough, I know. 8 number of crop tops I own. I thought I would have more, too. 3 the amount of times I watched Titanic in theaters. 5 the amount of times I thought there was a spider on my leg while driving. 5 the amount of times there was actually just a strand of hair on my leg and not a spider. ARIEL BARNESAvenue Writer Company, sets the bar for Japanese cuisine. He has trained alongside Japanese Iron Chef Masaharu Moage of 21. This year he was named a Best Chef by Best Chefs best chefs. He may seem intimidating when youre on the other side of the sushi line, but getting him to crack a smile is easier than you may think. Leung grew up in Hong Kong playing ping-pong for fun and always had the best lunch of all of his classmates. They looked at me weird because I had the weird food, Leung said. While the other kids ate ham-andcheese sandwiches, Leungs lunchbox conasked about his most recent success, winning the Iron Chef Gainesville competition, he claims he was not nervous. Its what we do every day. Its just cooking. Were in there for one reason to strive and cook with our heart, he said. The judges at the competition may have seemed intimidating, but Leung disagreed. No one there was better than anybody. Once youre in the kitchen, you get to work, he said. You grind and try to produce food out of love. The dynamics of leading a kitchen has little to do with food. Its not about cooking; its about people-managing, he said. Its important to understand your crew and each and every single personality throughout the kitchen. After the win, members of the kitchen returned to the restaurant. Employees applauded, praising every member as they walked through the doors. They cheered as Leung raised his echoed throughout the restaurant until closing. On Leungs days off, he sleeps in and watches TV like everyone else. Golf tees are scattered around his apartment like worked for 90 consecutive days. It was a piece of cake, he said. Its because I was committed, passionate and driven. For those looking to pursue a career in the culinary arts, Leung said, Youre in or youre out. You have to be fully committed, and you have to love it. There is no thinking that it might work. No one wants to eat food prepared by a mediocre chef.Ray Leung, top chef Leung

THE SENIOR WON HIS SECOND STRAIGHT NCAA OUTDOOR TITLE IN THE TRIPLE JUMP ON SATURDAY. GORDON STREISANDAlligator Writer The college career of one of Florida athletes has come to a close. Omar Craddock, an All-American triple at Florida with a bang last Saturday in Eugene, Ore., at the 2013 NCAA Outdoor Championships. the South Region Mens Field Athlete of the Year, jumped an all-conditions personal best distance of 16.92 meters. Oddly enough, he had already clinched the event victory his second consecutive at NCAA Outdoors before he took the jump. that fueled Florida to its second consecutive outdoor title. After his jump, the Gators rallied to tie Texas A&M by earning 28 out of a possible 30 points. My plan was to defend my title and get the A standard for Worlds this summer, Craddock said. I did one of those and theres time for the other. I wanted to get 10 points for my team and I did that. die (Lovett) and the relays, and I think I helped. In Craddocks four years at UF, he has (three indoor, two outdoor), while winning three individual titles himself. All of his individual titles have come in the last two years. defending both his Southeastern Conference and NCAA titles from the previous outdoor season. Hes really grown as a person here, coach Mike Holloway said. If you talk to Omar, the most gratifying thing from him is that hes always found a way to get it done when it counts. Even when Christian (Taylor) and Will (Claye) were here, he was always a presence. Now, those guys left, their shadow is gone, and it was Omar Craddocks turn. More than his success on the track, Craddocks savvy has been a boon for a very young team. He knows how to explain to the lower classmen what to expect from the program and how we operate here, Holloway said. Hes very passionate. In our team meetings, I let him talk to the team about how we do things here at Florida. Thats very helpful to me and the staff to have people come in and buy into what we do. Craddocks last two NCAA titles bumped Floridas winning streak up to seven in the mens triple jump a streak Claye. The impact they left on Craddock Being here at Florida has meant so much, Craddock said. Im so grateful, fortunate and glad to have been granted the opportunity to be at Florida and train with some of the best jumpers in NCAA history like Christian, Will, and now, Marquis (Dendy). ... Ill never forget the memories Ive created, the teammates Ive trained with and the chance to have been a part of history.Craddock wraps up college career with event title RICHARD JOHNSONAlligator WriterWhen former Florida catcher Mike Zunino was drafted third overall in last Junes MLB First-Year Player Draft, it was assumed he would make it to the big leagues eventually. Few could envision it happening this quickly. After one year and six days, Zunino rocketed through the Seattle Mariners minor league system and was called up to the majors on Tuesday. Zunino made his MLB debut Wednesday night, starting at No. 6 in the batting order in Seattles home matchup against the Houston Astros. The only other catcher on the Mariners depth chart is Kelly Shoppach. I dont think I could have pictured this a year ago, that this is where Id be, Zunino told Greg Johns of MLB.com. Its exceeded everything Ive ever dreamed of. So Ill just embrace it and take it as it comes.

It just made me excited. Again, Im a team out to win a national championship for the second year in a row is a great feeling. Hall was at the center of the now infamous Texas A&M baton drop. He was issued a sizable lead to tain it. The only thing on my mind was winning, said Hall. I saw to second leg. All I had to do was win it for my team. He did just that, ending the competition with a season-best At the start of the season, Hall wasnt anchoring the event. But he was destined to, according to coach Mike Holloway.

22, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 2013 Hall ready for USA Outdoor Track and Field ChampionshipsWhen he walked on campus, he wanted to be the anchor man. Indoors, he was a little dinged up. Outdoors, I anchored Dedric Dukes because he had more experience and was healthier. I said (to Hall), When youre ready to anchor, let me know. After the Texas Relays, he said he was ready. Hes been on ever since, and I think people saw why. Aside from his speed, Halls poise is one of the main reasons why he anchors the 4x4 as a freshman. Hall, Dukes and Hugh Graham Jr. grew up in South Florida and competed at world tournaments together. We all knew how it felt to be on a big stage three of us were on the world team, Hall said. Going on the world circuit really helped me with the 4x4 anchoring and being on the big stage itself. Hall attributes his success at UF to Holloways hands-on coaching style. Coach Holloway is the main reason I came here, Hall said. He takes his time to help us train and (explain) the race model he wants us to do. He makes sure were in our comfort zone when we run. It seems Hall is pretty comfortable anchoring the 4x4. and Field Championships one week away, theres only one thing left on Halls mind. All I know is that were getting rings, he said. HALL, from page 21necessity. The Mariners have had a revolving door at catcher this season. Jesus Sucre fractured his hand after being hit by a bat June 4 and was placed on the 15-day DL. Sucre appeared in eight games for Seattle. One-time top prospect Jesus Montero is also injured, and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks after tearing his meniscus. Montero was recently demoted to Triple-A Tacoma after tallying a .208 batting average and three home runs in 29 games. He may face suspension thanks to his alleged involvement with a Miami Biogenesis clinic. The veteran Shoppach has appeared in 35 games behind the plate for the Mariners with less than stellar results, hitting .196 and only .056 with runners in scoring position. Brandon Bantz was called up on June 5 and was designated for assignment less than a week later on June 11. In one game, he went 0 for 2 at the plate. With Bantz off of the major league roster and a catching platoon in turmoil, Seattle called up Zunino because it did not have many other options. He came into professional baseball as a highly touted prospect, winning the Dick Howser Trophy, Golden Spikes Award and Johnny Bench Award in his junior year. At Florida, Zunino was also a two-time All-American.. He is now the sixth player from the 2012 draft to make it to the Major League level. Prior to his call-up on Tuesday, Zunino was hitting .238 with 43 RBIs and 11 home runs for Triple-A Tacoma. Hes a mature kid, Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said. We were all impressed with what he did in spring training. But I dont think anybody here is expecting miracles. Were not looking like hes the answer. Were just looking as we put this together and where were at right now, we know hes going to be a guy that is counted on going forward, and its the right thing to do at this time for him. So well bring him up here, give him a chance to play and see how it works out.

A day after Tim Tebows release from the New York Jets, the Omaha Beef an indoor football team in Nebraska offered the former Florida quarterback a roster spot and $75 per game. Forty-one days later, the New England Patriots trumped the Beefs offer, signing Tebow to a two-year, non-guaranteed contract. ESPNs Ed Werder broke the story Monday afternoon, and immediately, our Facebook and Twitter feeds exploded. Tebowmania is a big deal since ESPN tells us it is so now its our turn to take a stab at it. As the hysteria slowly dies down for the time being, alligatorSports assistant editor Landon Watnick and alligatorSports.org editor Chuck Kingsbury will debate if Tebow will succeed Landon: Tebowmania is shallow and pedantic at this point, but I actually think Timothy Tebow can bring something positive to the table for an NFL team. Media gluttony aside, Tebow can only help the Patriots. Not only is he a great teammate, but hes a great athlete. He proved that in his second season with the Denver Broncos. He was erratic throwing the football in 14 games in 2011-12, but he doesnt have to play quarterback under coach Bill Belichick. As a 6-foot-3, 236-pound bruiser, he has a good mix of physicality and agility to play tight end, fullback or running back. I have faith in what Belichick will do with him. Dont forget Josh McDaniels, Tebows former coach in Denver, will be calling the plays. And you know how much of a man-crush McDaniels has on Tebow. the Pats, but hell only experience moderate success. To be fair, anything compared to his last season with the Jets would be considered a success. Im about to drop possibly the worst pun in the history of sports, but its time for a Boston Tea-bow Party. Chuck: Dont ever drop a pun again, or Ill drop you. If the New England Patriots and more importantly, Belichick were seriously considering Tebow for a spot on its 53-man roster, he wouldve been signed to a contract with guaranteed money. Without it, hes at as much of a risk of being cut as the other 19 undrafted rookie free agents. And the deal wont even cost New England a ham sandwich if it parts ways with Tebow before the start of the preseason. But hey, the Patriots may be trying to prove a point. With a twoyear deal worth $630,000 in base salary in 2013, Tebow could be a low-risk, high-reward player. But this seems like a short-lived favor from Belichick to Urban Meyer. Landon: Chuck, the only things youve been dropping lately are deuces. Tebow basically dropped one last season in New York. He was pretty bad in limited minutes, but in all fairness, so was his offensive line the entire year. If Tebow does see snaps at running back or that department in New England. Throughout his career, hes only prospered with a good offensive line. In 2011-12, the Broncos led the league in rushing offense with 2,632 yards mostly because of the offensive lines success at run blocking. Tebow rushed for 660 yards that year on only 122 carries. Sure, he might have to adjust to learning success getting carries at the goal line or in the but 200-250 yards on the ground and 3-4 rushing touchdowns would constitute a successful season. If he does switch to running back, I see Tebow accomplishing that. Tebow has the size to potentially be a dangerous target at tight end. Id really have to see Tebow get some reps in practice at the position before I determine if he can catch a pass. If he pushes his quarterback dreams to the curb, Tebow could be one of many valuable weapons for Tom Brady. Chuck: Ask Brady if hes cool sitting out a snap or two for Tim Tebow. Belichick may project him at tight end despite his lack of suddenness and its a blueprint that has worked well with few players in recent memory, most notably Mike Vrabel, who lined up at tight end in sub-packages in the red zone during his eight years in Foxborough. But Vrabel was also the starter at weak side linebacker, too. Lets face it Tebows last stand will be in New England. His window is closing rapidly, and the idea that the Patriots would even consider sitting him behind Brady for grooming Tebows poor footwork hasnt gotten any better since his freshman season at UF. He doesnt go through his progressions. He drifts in the pocket waiting for a receiver to come create plays instead of operating within an offenses structure. His mechanics havent improved. And he couldnt hit water if he was sitting in a pool. With Ryan Mallet on the depth chart, the Patriots reserved just two roster spots for quarterbacks in 2012. There is no chance in hell Belichick clears roster space for a third. Even if he changes positions, Tebow will be at a disadvantage sitting behind both Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez arguably the best tight-end combination in the league. I have no faith in Tebow as a potential inline blocker, nor do I think he can gain separation off the line of scrimmage if he were to make the transition to tight end. Quite frankly, he has a better shot long snapping. But hey, at least hes a little bit closer to Canada, right? Contact Landon Watnick at lwatnick@alligator.org.
