The new budget totals $17,798,535. A reduction of that size hasnt occurred in more than 20 years, budget and appropriations chairman Joseph Michaels said at the meeting. The university did not ask for an increase in the student fee rate, which is $17.35 a credit hour. At the same time, Michaels said, theres an anticipated decrease in the total amount of credit hours students will take meaning less money. We wanted to make sure we were putting the funding towards projects that would allow us to give students [things] that they would not have access to anywhere else in the nation, he said. For example, proposed cuts for RecSports ness classes. But those were rejected, Michaels said, because theyre too important to students. to serve the students, he said. Changes include Accent Speakers Bureau receiving about $34,000 less for its programs. Student Government Productions will get about $43,000 less. The newspaper readership program was eliminated. Academic organizations will also receive about $75,000 less than in the 2013-2014 budget, but student organizations will see no change in funding.

Because the dog was sitting in the back of the police car on standby, Cervone wrote, it was not engaged in a police activity. The charge of interfering with a police animal requires malice, and none exists, he wrote. It also requires that the animal Based on a video from the patrol car dashboard, Cervone wrote, Morrison did not resist arrest but rather questioned the Morrison was not legally at fault, Cervone wrote, and said he will defer to Coach Will Muschamp and Sheriff Sadie Darnell. I would expect that Morrison has learned that being out at that hour of the night under those circumstances is setting himself up for a situation where he could risk and lose a great deal, Cervone wrote. Morrison will be suspended for at least two games at the beginning of the upcoming season, Coach Will Muschamp announced via Twitter on Sunday.

Seven basalt columns will be erected at the new Survivors of Suicide Memory Garden at Cofrin Nature Park on Saturday from 8 a.m.-noon. Six of the pillars will stand about 6 feet tall and represent people who are directly affected by a suicide, said Marshall Knudson, the director of the Alachua County Crisis Center. The columns will encircle a shorter, broken pillar, which represents the person lost to suicide, he said. For every suicide, there are at least six people who are death of a loved one, Knudson said. Knudson said the design arranges the pillars symbolically in different groups.

THURSDAY, JULY 25, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 ITS GOAL IS $15,000. SAMANTHA SCHUYLERAlligator Contributing WriterIf all goes according to plan, the familiar ticking whir of traditional projectors will soon be silenced at the Hippodrome Theatre. On Monday, the theater launched an online campaign via www.kickstarter.com to raise $15,000 for a new digital projection system in response to the movie industrys transition to a digital format. Studios nationwide will disconreels starting in 2014. Cinemas that cannot accommodate the change will no longer receive a wide selection of movies. Hollywoods basically said, You go digital, or you go dark, said Hippodrome Cinema Director Alisha Kinman. If you dont make this change, youre not gowe have. While larger theaters have the funds to change immediately, Kinman said the challenge for local, independent theaters like the Hippodrome are small staffs and low budgets. You cant really afford a $40,000 projector just out of pocket, Kinman said. I mean, thats unrealistic. The Hippodrome will use $25,000 in grants for the transition, but intends to fund the rest using the Kickstarter website. Within about 24 hours of announcing the project, it had received about $1,000 in pledges. However, Kickstarter cancels all pledges for projects that do not reach their funding goal within a Sept. 20. Ryan Wolf, a 27-year-old analytical chemistry graduate student, frequently sees shows at the Hippodrome and said he plans to donate online. I dont want it to go away. They need help, and Im in a posihe said. So I will.The Hipp kickstarts its digital transitionROYAL BABY ALANNA MASSEYAlligator Contributing WriterA sign in front of Haile Village Bistro announcing the newborn Prince of Cambridge is Gainesvilles version of the traditional letter and easel in front of Buckingham Palace. Prince George Alexander Louis was born to Britains Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, Monday, and locals commemorated the occasion by popping Mot & Chandon champagne, drinking tea and watching news updates. The bistro, which holds about 60 people, was full of locals celebrating with the former mother country Monday night. Customers also gathered in the adjacent Queens Arms Pub to watch TV updates. Weve been waiting for this baby to come, said Jayne Yazdi, co-owner of the bistro, 5323 SW 91st Terrace. tos of William and Kate hung from the ceiling. A second sign announcing the royal birth leaned against a set of china on a lace-covered table. Paintings of the British royal family, loaned by local artist Barbara Tench, are displayed year-round at the establishment. Marj Crago, a member of the Haile community bridge club, was at the bistro most of the afternoon, eating Welsh cakes and playing bridge. The 16 bridge players and other customers applauded and cheered when they heard the news that George had arrived, she said. Were not British, but of course we had been watching and waiting, Crago said.Locals honor Prince Georges birthSG staffers got mandatory raisesI really kind of see a problem in that student organizations have double the budget that the academic orgs do, District D Senator Olga Rodriguez be providing the same amount of support to academic orgs. College of Medicine Senator Jacob Burns said he thought academic organizations were using most of their money for travel. He said enabling travel is great but should not be heavily budgeted for. One of the few gains in the budget was a roughly $53,000 increase in the salaries of Student Government staff members. This is due in part to a state government mandate but also the addition of a marketing director position. This, along with other changes, concerned District D Senator Daniella Saetta. [The budget] seems a lot like its very administratively-centric. Its not student-centric, she said. We have cheaper options for a lot of these things. Senators will vote again on the budget at next weeks Senate meeting, which is scheduled for 7 Classroom (Holland Hall, Room 180). SENA TE, from page 1Prince George

4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 25, 2013 FHP RANKED NO. 4 IN U.S. JEANNA ARROYOAlligator Contributing WriterIn a national poll that asked 1,000 people which state law enforcement uniform was the most attractive, Florida state troopers ranked No. 4. In the poll, taken by www. uniformdating.com, Florida was bested by California, Texas and New York. All of the uniforms in the top cording to the website. A news release about the survey results described the Florida state trooper uniform as warm and earth-toned with a classic and smart design. Lt. Jeff Frost, a Florida Highcer, said the goal of the uniform is visibility and professionalism. We have a distinctive uniform that easily recognizes us to the public as Florida Highway Patrol troopers, Frost said. When you look professional in uniform, it instills a sense of pride in the troopers and respect from the public. Some UF students, like 21-yearold Santiago Alvarez, disagreed with the ranking. The hat is foolish, said Alvarez, a UF math student. Its like Youre really giving me a ticket in that hat? However, Rachel Reiss, an 18year-old UF political science student, said the uniforms ranking could be a plus for the troopers. I guess its an iconic way to bring attention to the defense system of the state, Reiss said.FL: Where the temps are hot and police are hotterLOCAL HANNA MARCUSAlligator Writerhmarcus@alligator.orgFor residents of apartment buildings, drinking water rates Gainesville Regional Utilities is submitting a proposal to the City Commission suggesting an increase in drinking water rates for apartment buildings that share one water meter. The proposed hike would raise the price from $2.20 per 1,000 gallons of water to $3.75. City Commissioner Thomas Hawkins said he isnt sure when commissioners will vote on the proposal, but it is in budget and is being carefully considered. Because the city of Gainesville uses a tiered rate structure, Hawkins said, people who live in apartments and share one water meter are currently at a disadvantage. Most apartment complexes, especially the older ones, only have one water meter, Hawkins said. People that live in an apartment pay a whole lot more for water than anyone else. Apartment buildings divide the water bill among the apartment units individually, Hawkins said. But if people in some units consume more water than the residents they share a water meter with, they may be charged neighbors water usage. Because the billing structure doesnt penalize high water usage per unit, it discourages water conservation, Hawkins said. The disadvantage of the hike, Hawkins said, is that it may discourage people from choosing to live in an in-town apartment complex, which usually has a master water meter. If people are choosing from an in-town apartment complex that only has one meter, versus an outof -town that has a meter for every apartment, it puts in-town lower on the list, he said. Gainesville resident John Fleming, the managing member of Trimark Properties LLC, shared similar concerns. In an email to the city commission, he wrote that the proposed rate increase would restrict development citywide. Properties would be discriminated against based on the meter type that serves them, he wrote in an email. All of our land use and zoning codes were developed to encourage denser development in the core of Gainesville to combat urissues GRU representatives were not available for comment.City considers GRU water price hike People that live in an apartment pay a whole lot more for water than anyone else.Thomas Hawkinscity commissioner

Todays question: Do you smoke on campus? Lifes story arc: From depression to resolutionThe Shawshank Redemption has all the ingredients of a dismal movie. Its protagonist, Andy Dufresne, is hurled into a dark, dingy prison after being framed for murder. He spends years there battling anxiety and depression, not to mention fellow prisoners. Yet the story as a whole feels happy because of what movie buffs call a narrative arc. The tension peaks halfway, when Andy feels hopelessly depressed, but it winds down into a conclusion, or epilogue, that lets you know hes going to be happy. I doubt UF students can relate to being locked in a 1940s prison, but thousands may identify with Andys internal struggle. A nationwide survey by the American College Health Association in 2011 revealed that about three out of ten students had felt too depressed to function in the year preceding the study. Unlike movies, true stories about mental health often end too soon, without positive resolutions. In the spring of 2012, the UF community mourned for Michael Richard Edmonds Jr., the journalism student who committed suicide True stories with happy endings can give hope to people who are depressed, but those who have them tend to keep sues. My story ended happily eight years ago, thanks to my supportive friends, family and a place called Castle. On the outside, the three-story Victorian home in Cambridge, Mass., looked like a typical boarding school. About a dozen teenagers and I studied in the dining room and slept in bunk beds upstairs. In reality, Castle was a strict program for students with problems such as depression and substance abuse. Those who left without permission A chain of events starting in elementary school led me increasingly tough for me to have fun or connect with friends. My mom tried sending me to a few therapeutic and disciplinary programs, but none improved my situation. My outlook changed because of a series of people I met while at Castle, starting when I was 13. The schools staff members counseling students in their late 20s and 30s were smart, friendly and relatable. The staff recommended that I start taking weekly walks with Ron Siegel, a therapist with a broad smile and a salt-and-pepper moustache. Ron, an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School, had a great sense of humor, and he naturally weaved his clinical knowledge into conversations without using jargon. My then-supervisors, Jennifer Schmitt and Arthur Martins, ies featured teens telling mom jokes. Being a 15-year-old boy, I was pretty sure it deserved an Oscar. While I thank the staff at Castle, Ron and my friends at CCTV for improving my outlook, my mom deserves enorher job so she could attend weekly meetings at Castle, and she brought me sushi each Tuesday. Earlier this summer I had a dinner party for my former peers from Castle, and I was struck by how the group has evolved. Many of us now have healthy lifestyles, fun jobs and happy relationships with our partners and families. I stopped feeling depressed at 15, went to a regular high school at 16, then went to college. As an angsty teen, I once compared Castle to Shawback as an adult, I realize the prison and the school were similar, but for a different reason. They were catalysts that transformed depressing circumstances into happy endings. Cody Romano is a UF public relations senior. His columns appear Thursdays.

8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 25, 2013 This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 22-year-old major ing in international studies. Would you like to get some Me diocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Dear Mediocre Advice, Whats the best compliment you can give a woman? Pretty, beautiful, hot, etc.? Dear Friend, Heres the thing: There is a difference between women and girls. Girls care about being called pretty and probably still live under their parents roof. Girls think that guys who act like dicks but are at least good looking are oh-so-super cool and then chase after them. Women dont care about that kind of crap and do not care about being called pretty. Looks are not the best thing she has going for her, and its not the best thing she can offer. Its a petty compliment compared to being called funny, smart, sexy or remotely interesting. Women care about being able to impress and surprise you at times when you think they cant. Personally, I want to keep you on the edge of your seat like youre at a G-dd--n Cirque du Soleil show. Any minimal compli ment, like being called pretty, is not even going to get a womans attention. Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, Unfortunately, liking feet is considered weird to most people. Whats a non-creepy way to offer a foot massage to a girl whose feet hurt? Dear Friend, Just dont go on Craigslist. You would probably get murdered or be the mur derer because I think thats how that site works. Also, helping you get your foot long hours at a crappy job. This shouldnt be hard if you still have friends get ting their undergraduate degrees. As long as you dont walk up to random girls talking about how much you love feet attached or not attached to their bod ies I think you will only be considered mildly weird. Everybody wins! Dear Mediocre Advice, Have you ever attempted to pee in a urinal? Dear Friend, No. My penis is too big to whip out in public bathrooms. I dont like to startle people. Dear Mediocre Advice, Is it considered cheating if Im at a club and I pay a guy in a man thong to rub his weiner on my face? Is it OK to like it? c, I know what youre thinking when you walk up to the dirty red carpet in front of a strip club and look up at the colorful neon sign reading some thing like NUDE or DIX. Youre thinking, My mind is telling me no, but my body my body is telling me YEEEAAAAAAH. If you feel the need to go to a strip club and pay someone to rub his weiner on your face, you probably shouldnt be in a relationship. Technically, its not cheating grounds for a break-up. If you like it, there is a whole new reason why you should reevaluate your relationship status. You certainly cannot have both. What is it going to be: your engagement or a man rubbing his wein er on your face through the thin layer of his sequined polyester thong?

THURSDAY, JULY 25, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 CRESONIA HSIEHAvenue WriterWe all know what employers want: high GPAs, dazzling letters of recommendation and myriad extracurricular activities. Arguably though, the most important section on a resume is the work experience. Take advice from what several fellow UF students found as awesome internship opportunities here in their own college town. Law: Noa Marks, a UF business economics major, works as a legal intern for UFs Student Legal Services. to property damage, housing and insurance. into the computer system, Marks generates statistics and important details that pertain to the incident so lawyers are able to decide on the proper course of action based on information from past, similar cases. Marks said she has learned a lot from her internship. What was really interesting about this is how many people truly believe their case is rare and theyre the legal issues, she said. Students should never feel alone in that regard. Business: Jerry Declasse is a psychology and business major at UF who ran into the CEO of the event app company, Feathr, at an Innovation Academy event. Declasse works about 20 hours a week using Twitter to increase brand presence and generate leads for the company. Declasse said he is excited about his internship. Im really into the start-up scene and entrepreneurial spirit, he said. He hopes to start his own business after receiving his college education, he said. Journalism/Communications: Sophia Lee is a public relations major and director at HerMANual, an online womens magazine devoted to empowering fellow females in their love relationships. Though HerMANual operates with a small, intimate staff, Lee said it has a broad international presence of about 41,000 visitors each month. Lee said she is responsible for facilitating the internship program, creating public relations campaigns to expand our online presence and brainstorming article ideas with the interns. In the grassroots stage of Lees internship, she was involved in the content development and logistics of the womens magazine startup. Lee said she loves her internship because of the people she gets to work with. Our team is so close knit and respectful of one another, and its truly a unique elsewhere. Medical: Christine Adams is a pre-dental student, biotechnology major and research assistant at Dr. zlen Yilmazs lab at the Emerging Pathogens Institute at UF. At the lab, Adams is responsible for daily tasks like cleaning labware and updating monthly expenditure reports, but she is also in charge of preparation, which includes testing samples, running experiments, and passaging bacteria. I really enjoy laboratory work and learning new techniques and seeing results that help the other members of the lab, Adams said. Whether its researching legal cases, tweeting, writing up campaigns or running purity samples, Gainesville certainly has a lot to offer in terms of internship opportunities.

THURSDAY, JULY 25, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Miller heading to MemphisFormer UF guard Mike Miller informed the Memphis Grizzlies that he would sign with them on Wednesday. Miller previously played for the Miami Heat.Check out the Alligator Award nominees for Best Team and see the results for Best Female Athlete. See page 16.HERNANDEZ THE ASSOCIATED PRESSATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) A judge on Wednesday gave prosecutors more time to present evidence to a grand jury in their murder case against former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. Hernandez was in court for what was supposed to be a probable cause hearing, but prosecutors said the grand jury is still considering the evidence against him. Judge Daniel OShea considered defense objections to a delay but decided to reschedule the hearing for Aug. 22. Hernandez will continue to be held without bail until then. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old Boston semi-professional football player whose body was found June 17 in an industrial park Bristol County Assistant District Attorney William McCauley said additional evidence includes boxes of ammunition found at a condominium Hernandez leased and a magazine for a .45-caliber Glock in a Hummer registered to him. Authorities say Lloyd was killed with a .45-caliber gun, though it apparently has not been recovered. McCauley said the ammuniHernandez attorney James Sultan objected to the delay, saying his client has already been jailed for four weeks and that the district attorney could have waited to bring charges, but chose to go ahead last month. He made it sound like a slam dunk case, Sultan said. Outside court, another of Hernandezs attorneys, Charles Rankin, said he was extremely disappointed that prosecuHernandez will be exonerated. Hernandezs girlfriend, Shayanna Jenkins, was in court for the hearing Hernandez mouthed I love you in her direction before he was led out but she did not respond to reporters questions as she left the courthouse. Members of Lloyds family also attended the hearing but did not comment. Also Wednesday, OShea ruled in favor of media organizations, including The Associated Press, that were seeking access to more documents in the case, including two arrest warrants, additional search warrants and other materials. The records will be released at 3 p.m. Thursday if no one appeals. Sultan objected to the documents unsealing, saying he understood the medias insatiable appetite but that the release of records is undermining Hernandezs right to a fair trial. Prosecutors say Hernandez orchestrated Lloyds killing because he was upset at him for talking to people Hernandez had problems with at a nightclub a few days earlier. They say Hernandez and two associates, Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, drove with Lloyd to the North Attleborough dezs last court appearance paint the former Patriot as the triggerman. According to the records, Ortiz told police that Hernandez was kicked off the team within hours of his arrest. New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick broke his silence Wednesday, saying the Patriots will learn from this terrible experience, and that its time for New England to move forward. Well continue to evaluate the way that we do things, the way that we evaluate our players and well do it on a regular basis, Belichick said. Im not perfect on that, but I always do what I think is best for the football team. Wallace and Ortiz also are facing charges. Wallace pleaded not guilty to a charge of being an accessory to murder after the fact. Ortiz has pleaded not guilty to a gun charge. Warrants released Tuesday in Hernandezs hometown of Bristol, Conn., show police found ammunition, a gun box and documents tied to Ortiz and Wallace at Hernandezs uncles home. The warrants were used to search that home, where Ortiz said he lived; an apartment also linked to Ortiz; and a rental car police say was used by Wallace and Ortiz to return to Connecticut after the shooting. The items seized from the home included clothes, Correction Department documents linked to Ortiz and Wallace, a plastic gun box and two boxes of .38-caliber ammunition. Bristol police also have been investigating a possible link to a 2012 double fatal shooting in Boston, and earlier said they had seized vvan SUV wanted in that investigation from the uncles home. Court records say it had been rented in Hernandezs name.Hernandez trial delayed, grand jury considering evidenceHERNANDEZ THE ALLIG A TOR A W ARDSJoe: national titles in gymnastics and mens 13 season, one word will come to mind: milestone.

Injuries, dismissals and graduation decieven began. 2013 was going to be a rebuilding year to allow inexperienced freshmen to get their feet under them. Instead, the Gators bowled over their competition. They started the season with a bang beating No. 13 Arizona, No. 5 Orend 58-9 record. and tournament titles and made the trip to Oklahoma City for the Womens College history. The Gators were like Jeff Bridges they put in a top performance, even as others Joe: Theres no denying the phenomenal performance by Tim Waltons club in 2013.

Alabama may have been No. 1, but it was title or bust for Florida. The Gators met expectations head on and delivered, claiming the ultimate prize. But I cant blame you for warming up to the softball teams ability to defy the odds. After all, your beloved Yankees are trying to make a playoff run with Lyle Overbay batting cleanup. Adam: Trying and succeeding, kind of. Fourth place isnt so bad, especially when the disabled list has a better roster. But while the gymnastics team has a stacked roster, the softball team had to make do with several players who were off the radar before the season, such as Taylor Schwarz, Briana Little and Kirsti Merritt. They joined well-known players like Hannah Rogers, Lauren Haeger and No. 2 national recruit Kelsey Stewart to form a juggernaut. The softball team had few, if any, stars. Rogers had a great season, but she wasnt unbelievably domiin ERA. Stewart was a great addition at the top of the order, top 100 in average. Without one player who absolutely dominated the league, the Gators needed to do better than the sum of their individual parts. And they did, to the tune of an .866 winning percentage. Its a story that could warm even your heart, which has been left cold by two Yankee triumphs over your Braves in the Fall Classic. Joe: it cruel and unusual for you to bring back those painful memories, but Ill soldier onward. Im going to conclude my argument here with some math. The UF softball team compiled an .866 winning percentage. Gymnastics won at an .882 clip. Advantage: gymnastics. Softball had two All-Americans. Six gymnasts tied a Florida record with a combined 16 All-America honors. Advantage: gymnastics. Both teams won SEC championships. Draw. Gymnastics won the national championship. Also, Sloan won individual NCAA titles in allaround and beam while Alaina Johnson nabbed the uneven bars crown. Advantage: gymnastics. I admire your effort to argue on the softball teams behalf. Those Gators had a great season and deserve recognition. But saying there was a Florida team better than Faehns national championship squad during the his contract with the Yankees, B.) Zack Snyder making a good Justice League movie, C.) William and Kate naming their baby North, D.) All of the above. Take it away, Maino! Adam: Gymnastics had 14 meets and lost twice. Softball played more than 60 games and lost nine times. If Florida gymnastics replicated those results for 60 meets, they lose eight. I think thats pretty even. Also, gymnasts can earn multiple All-American awards in different events. Rogers isnt about to win any accolades with the bat. Gymnastics was supposed to win and did. Softball was supposed to lose and didnt. But both teams were really good, unlike B.J. The Lesser Upton. But at least I dont have to watch A-Rod play. Upton is in the lineup every night.

The new budget totals $17,798,535. A reduction of that size hasnt occurred in more than 20 years, budget and appropriations chairman Joseph Michaels said at the meeting. The university did not ask for an increase in the student fee rate, which is $17.35 a credit hour. At the same time, Michaels said, theres an anticipated decrease in the total amount of credit hours students will take meaning less money. We wanted to make sure we were putting the funding towards projects that would allow us to give students [things] that they would not have access to anywhere else in the nation, he said. For example, proposed cuts for RecSports ness classes. But those were rejected, Michaels said, because theyre too important to students. to serve the students, he said. Changes include Accent Speakers Bureau receiving about $34,000 less for its programs. Student Government Productions will get about $43,000 less. The newspaper readership program was eliminated. Academic organizations will also receive about $75,000 less than in the 2013-2014 budget, but student organizations will see no change in funding.

THERE WAS NO MALICE, THE ATTORNEY SAID. KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Staff Writer State Attorney William Cervone issued a statement Tuesday announcing the state would drop two charges against the 19-year-old UF linebacker, who was arrested at about 3 a.m. Sunday after barking at a police dog. Because the dog was sitting in the back of the police car on standby, Cervone wrote, it was not engaged in a police activity. The charge of interfering with a police animal requires malice, and none exists, he wrote. It also requires that the animal Based on a video from the patrol car dashboard, Cervone wrote, Morrison did not resist arrest but rather questioned the Morrison was not legally at fault, Cervone wrote, and said he will defer to Coach Will Muschamp and Sheriff Sadie Darnell. I would expect that Morrison has learned that being out at that hour of the night under those circumstances is setting himself up for a situation where he could risk and lose a great deal, Cervone wrote. Morrison will be suspended for at least two games at the beginning of the upcoming season, Coach Will Muschamp announced via Twitter on Sunday. Muschamp has not commented about whether he will change his decision because the charges were dropped. The deferred prosecution agreement for Morrisons June 16 arrest will remain the same, according to the state attorneys statement.Antonio Morrison unleashed: State attorney drops charges SHAFINA GHANIEAlligator Contributing WriterA city park will become a sanctuary for family and friends who have lost loved ones to suicide. Seven basalt columns will be erected at the new Survivors of Suicide Memory Garden at Cofrin Nature Park on Saturday from 8 a.m.-noon. Six of the pillars will stand about 6 feet tall and represent people who are directly affected by a suicide, said Marshall Knudson, the director of the Alachua County Crisis Center. The columns will encircle a shorter, broken pillar, which represents the person lost to suicide, he said. For every suicide, there are at least six people who are death of a loved one, Knudson said. Knudson said the design arranges the pillars symbolically in different groups.

John Bartheld has been breeding miniature cows on his farm for seven years hoping to recreate black-andwhite markings in the pattern of a panda to make a panda cow. He succeeded on June 28 when Peanut was born. From most angles, Peanut looks like the endangered Chinese bear with a big belt of white fur, a white face and black hair around the eyes.

Another panda cow born July 3, a half-sister named Star, has similar markings, Peanut is different and he knows it, Bartheld said. Hes got that cocky attitude. From the minute I laid eyes on him, I knew he was something special, he said Friday. Bartheld runs nine cattle and Two, Peanut and Star, are registered with the International Miniature Cattle Breeders Society and Registry, which is a division of Happy Mountain Farm in Covington, Wash. The four other cattle are fullsize cows sold as beef. The miniatures are pets or novelties too expensive to butcher, unless they grow too big. They butcher them all the time if they breed a miniature and it runs out 40to 45-inches tall; its considered a mid-sized beef. Bartheld grew up around his grandparents dairy, and the farm, now 11 acres, has been in the family four generations. He has a fulltime job with a concrete company in Tacoma, but I always knew I was going to have cows.

THURSDAY, JULY 25, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 ITS GOAL IS $15,000. SAMANTHA SCHUYLERAlligator Contributing WriterIf all goes according to plan, the familiar ticking whir of traditional projectors will soon be silenced at the Hippodrome Theatre. On Monday, the theater launched an online campaign via www.kickstarter.com to raise $15,000 for a new digital projection system in response to the movie industrys transition to a digital format. Studios nationwide will disconreels starting in 2014. Cinemas that cannot accommodate the change will no longer receive a wide selection of movies. Hollywoods basically said, You go digital, or you go dark, said Hippodrome Cinema Director Alisha Kinman. If you dont make this change, youre not gowe have. While larger theaters have the funds to change immediately, Kinman said the challenge for local, independent theaters like the Hippodrome are small staffs and low budgets. You cant really afford a $40,000 projector just out of pocket, Kinman said. I mean, thats unrealistic. The Hippodrome will use $25,000 in grants for the transition, but intends to fund the rest using the Kickstarter website. Within about 24 hours of announcing the project, it had received about $1,000 in pledges. However, Kickstarter cancels all pledges for projects that do not reach their funding goal within a Sept. 20. Ryan Wolf, a 27-year-old analytical chemistry graduate student, frequently sees shows at the Hippodrome and said he plans to donate online. I dont want it to go away. They need help, and Im in a posihe said. So I will.The Hipp kickstarts its digital transitionROYAL BABY ALANNA MASSEYAlligator Contributing WriterA sign in front of Haile Village Bistro announcing the newborn Prince of Cambridge is Gainesvilles version of the traditional letter and easel in front of Buckingham Palace. Prince George Alexander Louis was born to Britains Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, Monday, and locals commemorated the occasion by popping Mot & Chandon champagne, drinking tea and watching news updates. The bistro, which holds about 60 people, was full of locals celebrating with the former mother country Monday night. Customers also gathered in the adjacent Queens Arms Pub to watch TV updates. Weve been waiting for this baby to come, said Jayne Yazdi, co-owner of the bistro, 5323 SW 91st Terrace. tos of William and Kate hung from the ceiling. A second sign announcing the royal birth leaned against a set of china on a lace-covered table. Paintings of the British royal family, loaned by local artist Barbara Tench, are displayed year-round at the establishment. Marj Crago, a member of the Haile community bridge club, was at the bistro most of the afternoon, eating Welsh cakes and playing bridge. The 16 bridge players and other customers applauded and cheered when they heard the news that George had arrived, she said. Were not British, but of course we had been watching and waiting, Crago said.Locals honor Prince Georges birthSG staffers got mandatory raisesI really kind of see a problem in that student organizations have double the budget that the academic orgs do, District D Senator Olga Rodriguez be providing the same amount of support to academic orgs. College of Medicine Senator Jacob Burns said he thought academic organizations were using most of their money for travel. He said enabling travel is great but should not be heavily budgeted for. One of the few gains in the budget was a roughly $53,000 increase in the salaries of Student Government staff members. This is due in part to a state government mandate but also the addition of a marketing director position. This, along with other changes, concerned District D Senator Daniella Saetta. [The budget] seems a lot like its very administratively-centric. Its not student-centric, she said. We have cheaper options for a lot of these things. Senators will vote again on the budget at next weeks Senate meeting, which is scheduled for 7 Classroom (Holland Hall, Room 180). SENaA TE, from page 1Prince George

4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 25, 2013 FHP RANKED NO. 4 IN U.S. JEANNA ARROYOAlligator Contributing WriterIn a national poll that asked 1,000 people which state law enforcement uniform was the most attractive, Florida state troopers ranked No. 4. In the poll, taken by www. uniformdating.com, Florida was bested by California, Texas and New York. All of the uniforms in the top cording to the website. A news release about the survey results described the Florida state trooper uniform as warm and earth-toned with a classic and smart design. Lt. Jeff Frost, a Florida Highcer, said the goal of the uniform is visibility and professionalism. We have a distinctive uniform that easily recognizes us to the public as Florida Highway Patrol troopers, Frost said. When you look professional in uniform, it instills a sense of pride in the troopers and respect from the public. Some UF students, like 21-yearold Santiago Alvarez, disagreed with the ranking. The hat is foolish, said Alvarez, a UF math student. Its like Youre really giving me a ticket in that hat? However, Rachel Reiss, an 18year-old UF political science student, said the uniforms ranking could be a plus for the troopers. I guess its an iconic way to bring attention to the defense system of the state, Reiss said.FL: Where the temps are hot and police are hotterLOCAL HANNA MARCUSAlligator Writerhmarcus@alligator.orgFor residents of apartment buildings, drinking water rates Gainesville Regional Utilities is submitting a proposal to the City Commission suggesting an increase in drinking water rates for apartment buildings that share one water meter. The proposed hike would raise the price from $2.20 per 1,000 gallons of water to $3.75. City Commissioner Thomas Hawkins said he isnt sure when commissioners will vote on the proposal, but it is in budget and is being carefully considered. Because the city of Gainesville uses a tiered rate structure, Hawkins said, people who live in apartments and share one water meter are currently at a disadvantage. Most apartment complexes, especially the older ones, only have one water meter, Hawkins said. People that live in an apartment pay a whole lot more for water than anyone else. Apartment buildings divide the water bill among the apartment units individually, Hawkins said. But if people in some units consume more water than the residents they share a water meter with, they may be charged neighbors water usage. Because the billing structure doesnt penalize high water usage per unit, it discourages water conservation, Hawkins said. The disadvantage of the hike, Hawkins said, is that it may discourage people from choosing to live in an in-town apartment complex, which usually has a master water meter. If people are choosing from an in-town apartment complex that only has one meter, versus an outof -town that has a meter for every apartment, it puts in-town lower on the list, he said. Gainesville resident John Fleming, the managing member of Trimark Properties LLC, shared similar concerns. In an email to the city commission, he wrote that the proposed rate increase would restrict development citywide. Properties would be discriminated against based on the meter type that serves them, he wrote in an email. All of our land use and zoning codes were developed to encourage denser development in the core of Gainesville to combat urissues GRU representatives were not available for comment.City considers GRU water price hike People that live in an apartment pay a whole lot more for water than anyone else.Thomas Hawkinscity commissioner

Todays question: Do you smoke on campus? Lifes story arc: From depression to resolutionThe Shawshank Redemption has all the ingredients of a dismal movie. Its protagonist, Andy Dufresne, is hurled into a dark, dingy prison after being framed for murder. He spends years there battling anxiety and depression, not to mention fellow prisoners. Yet the story as a whole feels happy because of what movie buffs call a narrative arc. The tension peaks halfway, when Andy feels hopelessly depressed, but it winds down into a conclusion, or epilogue, that lets you know hes going to be happy. I doubt UF students can relate to being locked in a 1940s prison, but thousands may identify with Andys internal struggle. A nationwide survey by the American College Health Association in 2011 revealed that about three out of ten students had felt too depressed to function in the year preceding the study. Unlike movies, true stories about mental health often end too soon, without positive resolutions. In the spring of 2012, the UF community mourned for Michael Richard Edmonds Jr., the journalism student who committed suicide True stories with happy endings can give hope to people who are depressed, but those who have them tend to keep sues. My story ended happily eight years ago, thanks to my supportive friends, family and a place called Castle. On the outside, the three-story Victorian home in Cambridge, Mass., looked like a typical boarding school. About a dozen teenagers and I studied in the dining room and slept in bunk beds upstairs. In reality, Castle was a strict program for students with problems such as depression and substance abuse. Those who left without permission A chain of events starting in elementary school led me increasingly tough for me to have fun or connect with friends. My mom tried sending me to a few therapeutic and disciplinary programs, but none improved my situation. My outlook changed because of a series of people I met while at Castle, starting when I was 13. The schools staff members counseling students in their late 20s and 30s were smart, friendly and relatable. The staff recommended that I start taking weekly walks with Ron Siegel, a therapist with a broad smile and a salt-and-pepper moustache. Ron, an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School, had a great sense of humor, and he naturally weaved his clinical knowledge into conversations without using jargon. My then-supervisors, Jennifer Schmitt and Arthur Martins, ies featured teens telling mom jokes. Being a 15-year-old boy, I was pretty sure it deserved an Oscar. While I thank the staff at Castle, Ron and my friends at CCTV for improving my outlook, my mom deserves enorher job so she could attend weekly meetings at Castle, and she brought me sushi each Tuesday. Earlier this summer I had a dinner party for my former peers from Castle, and I was struck by how the group has evolved. Many of us now have healthy lifestyles, fun jobs and happy relationships with our partners and families. I stopped feeling depressed at 15, went to a regular high school at 16, then went to college. As an angsty teen, I once compared Castle to Shawback as an adult, I realize the prison and the school were similar, but for a different reason. They were catalysts that transformed depressing circumstances into happy endings. Cody Romano is a UF public relations senior. His columns appear Thursdays.

8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 25, 2013 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 Dear Mediocre Advice, Whats the best compliment you can give a woman? Pretty, beautiful, hot, etc.? Dear Friend, Heres the thing: There is a difference between women and girls. Girls care about being called pretty and probably still live under their parents roof. Girls think that guys who act like dicks but are at least good looking are oh-so-super cool and then chase after them. Women dont care about that kind of crap and do not care about being called pretty. Looks are not the best thing she has going for her, and its not the best thing she can offer. Its a petty compliment compared to being called funny, smart, sexy or remotely interesting. Women care about being able to impress and surprise you at times when you think they cant. Personally, I want to keep you on the edge of your seat like youre at a G-dd--n Cirque du Soleil show. Any minimal compliment, like being called pretty, is not even going to get a womans attention. Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, Unfortunately, liking feet is considered weird to most people. Whats a non-creepy way to offer a foot massage to a girl whose feet hurt? Dear Friend, Just dont go on Craigslist. You would probably get murdered or be the murderer because I think thats how that site works. Also, helping you get your foot long hours at a crappy job. This shouldnt be hard if you still have friends getting their undergraduate degrees. As long as you dont walk up to random girls talking about how much you love feet attached or not attached to their bodies I think you will only be considered mildly weird. Everybody wins! Dear Mediocre Advice, Have you ever attempted to pee in a urinal? Dear Friend, No. My penis is too big to whip out in public bathrooms. I dont like to startle people. Dear Mediocre Advice, Is it considered cheating if Im at a club and I pay a guy in a man thong to rub his weiner on my face? Is it OK to like it? c, I know what youre thinking when you walk up to the dirty red carpet in front of a strip club and look up at the colorful neon sign reading some thing like NUDE or DIX. Youre thinking, My mind is telling me no, but my body my body is telling me YEEEAAAAAAH. If you feel the need to go to a strip club and pay someone to rub his weiner on your face, you probably shouldnt be in a relationship. Technically, its not cheating grounds for a break-up. If you like it, there is a whole new reason why you should reevaluate your relationship status. You certainly cannot have both. What is it going to be: your engagement or a man rubbing his wein er on your face through the thin layer of his sequined polyester thong?

THURSDAY, JULY 25, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 CRESONIA HSIEHAvenue WriterWe all know what employers want: high GPAs, dazzling letters of recommendation and myriad extracurricular activities. Arguably though, the most important section on a resume is the work experience. Take advice from what several fellow UF students found as awesome internship opportunities here in their own college town. Law: Noa Marks, a UF business economics major, works as a legal intern for UFs Student Legal Services. to property damage, housing and insurance. into the computer system, Marks generates statistics and important details that pertain to the incident so lawyers are able to decide on the proper course of action based on information from past, similar cases. Marks said she has learned a lot from her internship. What was really interesting about this is how many people truly believe their case is rare and theyre the legal issues, she said. Students should never feel alone in that regard. Business: Jerry Declasse is a psychology and business major at UF who ran into the CEO of the event app company, Feathr, at an Innovation Academy event. Declasse works about 20 hours a week using Twitter to increase brand presence and generate leads for the company. Declasse said he is excited about his internship. Im really into the start-up scene and entrepreneurial spirit, he said. He hopes to start his own business after receiving his college education, he said. Journalism/Communications: Sophia Lee is a public relations major and director at HerMANual, an online womens magazine devoted to empowering fellow females in their love relationships. Though HerMANual operates with a small, intimate staff, Lee said it has a broad international presence of about 41,000 visitors each month. Lee said she is responsible for facilitating the internship program, creating public relations campaigns to expand our online presence and brainstorming article ideas with the interns. In the grassroots stage of Lees internship, she was involved in the content development and logistics of the womens magazine startup. Lee said she loves her internship because of the people she gets to work with. Our team is so close knit and respectful of one another, and its truly a unique elsewhere. Medical: Christine Adams is a pre-dental student, biotechnology major and research assistant at Dr. zlen Yilmazs lab at the Emerging Pathogens Institute at UF. At the lab, Adams is responsible for daily tasks like cleaning labware and updating monthly expenditure reports, but she is also in charge of preparation, which includes testing samples, running experiments, and passaging bacteria. I really enjoy laboratory work and learning new techniques and seeing results that help the other members of the lab, Adams said. Whether its researching legal cases, tweeting, writing up campaigns or running purity samples, Gainesville certainly has a lot to offer in terms of internship opportunities.

THURSDAY, JULY 25, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Miller heading to MemphisFormer UF guard Mike Miller informed the Memphis Grizzlies that he would sign with them on Wednesday. Miller previously played for the Miami Heat.Check out the Alligator Award nominees for Best Team and see the results for Best Female Athlete. See page 16.HERNANDEZ THE ASSOCIATED PRESSATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) A judge on Wednesday gave prosecutors more time to present evidence to a grand jury in their murder case against former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. Hernandez was in court for what was supposed to be a probable cause hearing, but prosecutors said the grand jury is still considering the evidence against him. Judge Daniel OShea considered defense objections to a delay but decided to reschedule the hearing for Aug. 22. Hernandez will continue to be held without bail until then. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old Boston semi-professional football player whose body was found June 17 in an industrial park Bristol County Assistant District Attorney William McCauley said additional evidence includes boxes of ammunition found at a condominium Hernandez leased and a magazine for a .45-caliber Glock in a Hummer registered to him. Authorities say Lloyd was killed with a .45-caliber gun, though it apparently has not been recovered. McCauley said the ammuniHernandez attorney James Sultan objected to the delay, saying his client has already been jailed for four weeks and that the district attorney could have waited to bring charges, but chose to go ahead last month. He made it sound like a slam dunk case, Sultan said. Outside court, another of Hernandezs attorneys, Charles Rankin, said he was extremely disappointed that prosecuHernandez will be exonerated. Hernandezs girlfriend, Shayanna Jenkins, was in court for the hearing Hernandez mouthed I love you in her direction before he was led out but she did not respond to reporters questions as she left the courthouse. Members of Lloyds family also attended the hearing but did not comment. Also Wednesday, OShea ruled in favor of media organizations, including The Associated Press, that were seeking access to more documents in the case, including two arrest warrants, additional search warrants and other materials. The records will be released at 3 p.m. Thursday if no one appeals. Sultan objected to the documents unsealing, saying he understood the medias insatiable appetite but that the release of records is undermining Hernandezs right to a fair trial. Prosecutors say Hernandez orchestrated Lloyds killing because he was upset at him for talking to people Hernandez had problems with at a nightclub a few days earlier. They say Hernandez and two associates, Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, drove with Lloyd to the North Attleborough dezs last court appearance paint the former Patriot as the triggerman. According to the records, Ortiz told police that Hernandez was kicked off the team within hours of his arrest. New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick broke his silence Wednesday, saying the Patriots will learn from this terrible experience, and that its time for New England to move forward. Well continue to evaluate the way that we do things, the way that we evaluate our players and well do it on a regular basis, Belichick said. Im not perfect on that, but I always do what I think is best for the football team. Wallace and Ortiz also are facing charges. Wallace pleaded not guilty to a charge of being an accessory to murder after the fact. Ortiz has pleaded not guilty to a gun charge. Warrants released Tuesday in Hernandezs hometown of Bristol, Conn., show police found ammunition, a gun box and documents tied to Ortiz and Wallace at Hernandezs uncles home. The warrants were used to search that home, where Ortiz said he lived; an apartment also linked to Ortiz; and a rental car police say was used by Wallace and Ortiz to return to Connecticut after the shooting. The items seized from the home included clothes, Correction Department documents linked to Ortiz and Wallace, a plastic gun box and two boxes of .38-caliber ammunition. Bristol police also have been investigating a possible link to a 2012 double fatal shooting in Boston, and earlier said they had seized vvan SUV wanted in that investigation from the uncles home. Court records say it had been rented in Hernandezs name.Hernandez trial delayed, grand jury considering evidenceHERNANDEZ TheHE aALLIGa A TOrR aA Ward ARDSJoe: national titles in gymnastics and mens 13 season, one word will come to mind: milestone.

Injuries, dismissals and graduation decieven began. 2013 was going to be a rebuilding year to allow inexperienced freshmen to get their feet under them. Instead, the Gators bowled over their competition.  They started the season with a bang beating No. 13 Arizona, No. 5 Orend 58-9 record. and tournament titles and made the trip to Oklahoma City for the Womens College history. The Gators were like Jeff Bridges they put in a top performance, even as others   Joe: Theres no denying the phenomenal performance by Tim Waltons club in 2013.

Alabama may have been No. 1, but it was title or bust for Florida. The Gators met expectations head on and delivered, claiming the ultimate prize. But I cant blame you for warming up to the softball teams ability to defy the odds. After all, your beloved Yankees are trying to make a playoff run with Lyle Overbay batting cleanup. Adam: Trying and succeeding, kind of. Fourth place isnt so bad, especially when the disabled list has a better roster. But while the gymnastics team has a stacked roster, the softball team had to make do with several players who were off the radar before the season, such as Taylor Schwarz, Briana Little and Kirsti Merritt. They joined well-known players like Hannah Rogers, Lauren Haeger and No. 2 national recruit Kelsey Stewart to form a juggernaut. The softball team had few, if any, stars. Rogers had a great season, but she wasnt unbelievably domiin ERA. Stewart was a great addition at the top of the order, top 100 in average. Without one player who absolutely dominated the league, the Gators needed to do better than the sum of their individual parts. And they did, to the tune of an .866 winning percentage. Its a story that could warm even your heart, which has been left cold by two Yankee triumphs over your Braves in the Fall Classic. Joe: it cruel and unusual for you to bring back those painful memories, but Ill soldier onward. Im going to conclude my argument here with some math. The UF softball team compiled an .866 winning percentage. Gymnastics won at an .882 clip. Advantage: gymnastics. Softball had two All-Americans. Six gymnasts tied a Florida record with a combined 16 All-America honors. Advantage: gymnastics. Both teams won SEC championships. Draw. Gymnastics won the national championship. Also, Sloan won individual NCAA titles in allaround and beam while Alaina Johnson nabbed the uneven bars crown. Advantage: gymnastics. I admire your effort to argue on the softball teams behalf. Those Gators had a great season and deserve recognition. But saying there was a Florida team better than Faehns national championship squad during the his contract with the Yankees, B.) Zack Snyder making a good Justice League movie, C.) William and Kate naming their baby North, D.) All of the above. Take it away, Maino! Adam: Gymnastics had 14 meets and lost twice. Softball played more than 60 games and lost nine times. If Florida gymnastics replicated those results for 60 meets, they lose eight. I think thats pretty even. Also, gymnasts can earn multiple All-American awards in different events. Rogers isnt about to win any accolades with the bat. Gymnastics was supposed to win and did. Softball was supposed to lose and didnt. But both teams were really good, unlike B.J. The Lesser Upton. But at least I dont have to watch A-Rod play. Upton is in the lineup every night.

The three-time All-Pro cornerback whos the centerpiece of an effort to overhaul the NFLs worst pass defense has been cleared medically to participate in some activities after missing most of last season with the New York Jets following surgery to repair a torn knee ligament. The Bucs obtained Revis from the Jets years draft, then signed him to a six-year, $96 million contract. Tampa Bay reported for camp WednesRevis will be limited. Hell be out there tomorrow, coach Greg Schiano said. With all the injured guys, we have individual plans for them. Darrelle is going to do some stuff, but he isnt going to do everything. Tampa Bay was last in pass defense a ing the most yards passing in league history. Hes in good shape. Were going to play him back into football shape. Cutting, moving with other guys not just by himself, Schiano said. Hes a professional. He knows what he needs to do to get ready, and were going to help him. The Bucs havent determined how much Revis will play during the preseason. The goal is have him ready for the Sept. 8 regular season opener against his old team. Hes a professional.
