CAMPUS JENSEN WERLEYAlligator Staff Writerjwerley@alligator.orgGraduate assistants can look forward to getting a little more green for their work. UF and Graduate Assistants United, the bargaining unit for more than 4,000 graduate assistants, agreed to a contract that includes pay raises. About 500 graduate assistants will receive a 10 percent increase in their minimum stipends starting on Oct. 1, according to a university news release. This years improved budget allows us to provide additional support to graduate teaching assistants, UF President Bernie Machen said in the release. Their contribution to our education programs is important and very much appreciated. The 500 students were earning less than the new minimum stipend. The new contract includes an across-the-board increase of 4.4 percent to new and existing graduate assistants base salaries. This is great news, said UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes. President Machen has long supported helping lift our grad students, which are an important piece of the broader university community. The next step for the agreement vice president for human resource services, wrote in an email. GAUs membership and UFs Board of Trustees still must OK the agreement, according to the release. The increases are very good news and shows the commitment by the president in support of our GAs, Fussell said. Other compensation announcements regarding UF employees were announced earlier this summer and included eligible staff receiving a 3.5 percent salary increase and eligible faculty seeing an increase in their annual base pay, Fussell said. Eligible faculty who earn less than $40,000 will receive a $1,400 increase in base pay, and those earning more than $40,000 will get part-time and full-time status, according to the release. Funds for faculty merit raises will be available on Oct. 1 for faculty that did not qualify for the bargaining unit, according to the statement.Graduate assistants to get pay raise beginning Oct. 1 Current and new minimum annual stipends for graduate assistants A 1.0 FTE number is for a full-time, 40-hour-per-week-employee. .25 is for 10 hours per week.

Yohos food stamp hypocrisy harmsEarlier this summer, I worked as an intern at the AFL-CIO national headquarters in Washington, DC. The AFL-CIO is a national confederation of labor unions that advocates on behalf of American workers, including the working poor. As part of my internship, I had the opportunity to meet with Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL), the congressman who represents Gainesville, to discuss legislation proposed in Congress that would raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour from its current level of $7.25. Although the congressman and I had sharply divergent opinions about the merits of increasing the minimum wage, our conversation was respectful and cordial. struggles of minimum wage workers in America because he and his wife relied on food stamps to supplement their meager income early in their marriage. He said that, although he opposed giving government assistance to the working class, he had a strong desire to increase economic growth to help ensure prosperity for all Americans. Unfortunately, recent statements made by Rep. Yoho suggest that his actual views on the plight of the poor and working class in America are much less charitable than he initially led me to believe. According to Right Wing Watch, a website that reports on statements made by conservative Republicans relating to key issues, Yoho casually dismissed the problem of hunger in America as nonexistent at a recent town hall meeting. I think theres 330 million people starving, at least three times a day, Yoho said. We call it breakfast, lunch and dinner. Yoho asserted that millions of Americans who Assistance Program (SNAP, often called food stamps) are not truly in need of government assistance. He said cutting the SNAP program would not cause harm to anyone and that not one person would lose a calorie or a crumb that deserves it. Yohos callous joke and his portrayal of many SNAP growing problem of food insecurity in America. Feeding America, a hunger advocacy group, reported point during 2009. This means that millions of Americans, many of whom are employed in minimum-wage or low-wage jobs, are frequently unable to afford enough food for themselves and their families. Rep. Yohos opposition to measures like fully funding which would help combat the problems of poverty interests of his constituents and those of the nation as a whole. His support for eviscerating the American social safety net despite relying on it himself in the past is deeply hypocritical. The people of Gainesville and Alachua County, particularly the working poor, deserve advocates in Congress to help ensure that their most basic needs are being met. Rep. Yohos hypocritical, destructive and false statements show that he lacks the integrity required to effectively represent his constituents.

I am so thrilled for the year ahead and even more excited to have the opportunity to represent more than 50,000 Gators here at the University of Florida. It is an amazing time to be a student at the our campus and the overall student experience. A great example of this can be seen right at the heart of our campus in our student union. Currently undergoing a $75 million renovation and expansion, the J. Wayne Reitz Union will soon have enough space to house all of our 900+ student organizations and serve as our central hub for student services. Looking back at my time here, the best advice I can give to any Gator is that your time here is what you make of it. Join the club you role in the UF community. There is no better way to enhance your UF experience than to immerse yourself right in it. niche becomes even more important.

The technology fee awards focus on enhancing instructional technology resources, said UF Information Technology spokeswoman Tracy Gale. The money for the projects comes from a state-mandated technology fee, which in 2009. This year, about $700,000 in funding was allocated for 11 upcoming campus projects. Technology changes so fast, she said. The tech fee allows us to deliver cuttingedge software and services to meet the changing needs of not only the technology but our students and faculty. Gale said the time it takes to implement the projects will vary. Proposals that call for classroom renovation would have taken place in the summer, she said. Sara Gonzalez, a science and technology librarian, applied and received funding for the 3-D printer that will be in the Marston Science Liare now requiring employees to be able to use these printers, she said, the 3-D printer is something students should become experienced with before graduation. Peggy Carr, associate dean and professor for the College of Design, Construction and Planning, received funding for the creation of a joint digital fabrication laboratory. We think that this is an area of student interest that is going to grow, she said. We really feel like its essential to have these facilities for our students. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 Editors note: A version of this story originally ran May 28. SOME RESIDENTS ARENT HAPPY WITH THE IDEA. HANNA MARCUSAlligator Staff Writer hmarcus@alligator.orgAlthough the square plot of land near the intersection of 13th Street and West University Avenue is vacant, its been stirring up dialogue for months. Miami-based development company the Swerdlow Group has been working with the City of Gainesville to legally amend the citys comprehensive plan to allow construction of a new multi-story residential development called University Corners. Via two proposals, the company asked Gainesville to adopt two separate ordinances to rezone the property to allow a taller building something the current zoning wouldnt allow. Under current law, they could do the same project, but not quite as big, said City Commissioner Thomas Hawkins. Gainesville is going to grow. Were trying to make it grow, but we only have a certain amount of space. We need to allow people to build taller buildings to accommodate for that. A multi-story building would offer more jobs and more opportunities, Hawkins said. Because of the location and the number of people that could reside at the University Corners building, Hawkins said, costs such as transduced for residents. However, not all Gainesville residents are ready to support the project. Lisa Limpert, a 58-year-old Gainesville resident, said she does not support the proposed ordinance. Limpert, who has lived in Gainesville for 47 years, said the building, which could range from eight to 13 stories, will not only ruin the aesthetics of the area, but also trian situations. The intersection of 13th Street issues as it now stands, she wrote in an email. Adding a huge retail and residential complex on that corner without considering the impact Tom Rider, retired owner of Goerings Book Store, agreed the project would be a bad move for Gainesville. Im proud that I live in a neighborhood thats really come back after years of neglect, he said. But I see this project as a step in the wrong direction.

Hollywoods basically said, You go digital, or you go dark, said Hippodrome Cinema Director Alisha Kinman. 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. Ryan Wolf, a 27-year-old analytical chemistry graduate student, frequently sees shows at the Hippodrome and said he plans to donate online. The Hippodrome will use $25,000 in grants for the transition, but intends to fund the rest using the Kickstarter website.

Thats when another symbol joined the predominantly Baptist town 30 miles northeast of sored monument erected on government property in the U.S., according to the American Atheists group. Under cloudy skies, about 300 people pressed in front of the Bradford County Courthouse to witness the unveiling of the monument: a 4-foot-tall granite pillar with a bench attached bearing inscriptions of quotes from famous atheists. Although Bradford County Commissioner Danny Riddick, who cally express approval of the monument, he emphasized the opportunity to ask questions. By having both monuments side by side, I hope [visitors can] search true meanings, he said. This is the most important decision a person can make: What to do with God? When Riddick read a Bible verse that included serve the Lord, someone in the crowd yelled, serve nobody! light in Starke when New Jerseyalong with a local resident, sued the county in 2005 for a lighted cross that used to perch on top of a water tower. It was removed in 2007. Then, in 2012, a local Christian mens group paid about $20,000 to install the Ten Commandments monument at the courthouse, according to American Atheists. It caught the attention of the group and sparked a lawsuit, which led to a series of negotiations with Bradford County government, which ended in the agreement to erect a second monument presenting an alternative viewpoint. For many, the monument is an issue of regional identity. hand, 20-year-old Marshall Rawson said the new monument is disrespectful to the regions heritage because it is imposing Northern tion of morality on an area that may not be rooted in the same valcapitol post-Civil War during Andrew Jacksons presidency. Our push is to preserve our Southern heritage, he said. Every nation should have a cultural identity. However, Bridget Gaudette, a local activist and a director for Foundation Beyond Belief who also spoke during the ceremony, said the monument does represent the ideals of a segment of the local population. She said the willingness of American Atheists to draw attention to the Starke courthouse helped other local atheists who had been quiet about their beliefs to organize. With the weight of a national organization behind them, they were more willing to step forward, she said. lawsuit against the courthouse, was one. He stepped up to the lectern cargo shirt with the sleeves rolled up. When Cooney wanted to combat the Ten Commandments monument, he lacked the resources to speak up on friend with a big stick. He found that friend in American Atheists. The speeches during the dedication ceremony were punctuated by blasts from semi truck horns. Thats because Patti Hinds, the owner of two businesses that share stood across the street with a group of about 10 people holding signs for Jesus, written in marker. Gospel music blared from the stereo of a green Chevy Silverado parked on the curb. Although Hinds said she thought it important to protest, she said the new monument probably wont have a lasting impact. I think its just people kicking and screaming, she said. President of American Atheists Dave Silverman closed the ceremony, saying the historic code is the invokes violence on those who dont follow it. He then condemned the penalties associated with breaking the Ten Commandments. The atheist monument, he said, represents ideals without underlying threats. And then someone pulled the red cloth from the monument. As people crowded around the monument to take photos, Canadian evangelist Sye Ten Bruggencate climbed on top of the bench. He set down a plastic toilet seat and a roll of toilet paper and declared the monument was complete. Spurred on by an angry crowd, a bystander hurled the toilet paper away and tried to snatch the seat. Ten Bruggencate climbed down and tucked the toilet seat under his arm. I think we have to engage people rationally, he said. It was a joke, but it exposed their intolerance. Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith, who attended the ceremony out of uniform, said he didnt recognize any of the outspoken evangelicals at the event. Most, he said, had already come to terms with the monument and allowed it to be unveiled peacefully. After Ten Bruggencate stood on the monument, the bench began sliding out of place. A deputy roped off a small area surrounding it with yellow crime-scene tape and orange happened because the grout holding the monument together hadnt fully hardened. This thing started sliding, and I said Oh, Lord, he said with a chuckle. Although American Atheists asserted it will erect similar monuments across the country, the Rev. Les Singleton, of Micanopy, said he thinks the situation in Starke was handled with a good compromise. Its probably a satisfactory resolution to put something alongside instead of removing, he said. But he said the Starke monument will have limited impact. Id be surprised if its more than a blip in the news, he said. I think its a hiccup.First atheist monument on government property unveiledShannon Kaestle / AlligatorBradford County Courthouse is home to the pillar

Editors note: A version of this story originally ran May 21. THE COMPANY AND UF ARE STILL NEGOTIATING. SAMANTHA SCHUYLERAlligator Contributing WriterDue to an outstanding debt of almost $30,000, delivery of both The New York Times and USA Today to the UF campus was suspended this summer. The readership program, which provides free digital and physical copies of both papers to students, is a partnership between the two companies. USA Today handles the contracting and billing to the school as well as distribution of the paper. According to a USA Today representative who preferred to remain anonymous, Student Government and USA Today signed a service agreement that called for $66,590 for the 2012-13 school year. SG submitted a purchase order for $40,000. We get a call from USA Today within the last month saying, Youve got to cancel all the papers at UF because theyre not going to pay their bill, said Kevin Cappallo, national director of education sales for The New York Times. Theres an outstanding balance of, Im thinking, 20-something-thousand. But UF Student Body President Christina Bonarrigo said she was not aware of a vote to reduce the allocation. I am aware that a purchase agreement was made for a certain amount of money and that UF honored that agreement, she said. She said the contract, signed in 2010, featured a clause that said funds were subject to availability. We went through the proper avenues of the program that was requested, Bonarrigo said. It was passed through the senate body and the Budget and Appropriations Committee. The USA Today representative said a conference call was scheduled in an attempt to work with SG, but the students were a no-show. Similarly, Cappallo said hes had trouble reaching SG. I have made several overtures to contact the president of SGA, he said. Ive tried contacting the adviser of SGA and havent gotten any response. However, Bonarrigo said she talked to the USA Today representative twice in early May. We discussed options about the program, she said. [The representative] hoped we would continue the program for the upcoming years, and its something the Senate would discuss in the upcoming years budget. According to the representative, USA Today had been trying to get in contact with SG since the beginning of the year. It was only until recently that they communicated with Bonarrigo after she had been contacted by the Alligator for information. [SG] didnt say, Youre spending too much of our money. we would have dug further, the representative said. But instead, nobody got that message to the USA As a result of the reduced purchasing order, both papers will be forced to write off the debt, but for now will not be sending the universitys account to collections, which could show negligent activity and lower the universitys credit score, according to the representative. Itd be a shame for [the program] to end, said Patrick Reakes, Chairman of Library West. I know its been heavily used by the students. While USA Today believes the university should be liable for the papers used, it still wants to continue the program.

Rick Scotts efforts to the contrary, tuition will increase this Fall. UF Board of Trustees passed a regulation amendment that will raise undergraduate resident students tuition by about $4.01 per credit hour, which totals about $120 each year.

Maybe students who pass by the ghost bike will see it and think about its purpose. Ghost bikes are small somber memorials for bicyclists killed or hit on the street. A bicycle is painted entirely white and locked to a street sign near the crash site to serve as a reminder of the tragedy and as a quiet statement in support of cyclists rights to safe travel. James Harris and his family decided to bring ghost bikes to Gainesville and felt it would be the ideal way to remember their Becca.

Crispyn Coller, a 23-year-old UF alumnus who works at UF Plaza, said he was a little disappointed by the decision to turn the space into a bar because there are already so many drink venues in Midtown.

EMILY BUCHANANAlligator Contributing Writer it harder to catch a ride on RTS bus route 39. RTS slated three primary changes, wrote RTS Transit Planner Matthew Muller in an email. The service will run more frequently but in a condensed window of time, and it will enter campus on a different street, he said. The old route, which ran every 90 minutes, will begin running every 60 minutes. It previously ran until 5:45 p.m., but under the new schedule, it will terminate at 3:30 p.m. and will enter campus from Northwest 83rd Street, instead of Northwest 91st Street. The changes are coming about because Route 39 has been funded by Santa Fe and the Florida Department of Transportation, said RTS spokesman Chip Skinner. The FDOTs funding share has recently expired making Santa Fe the sole provider for the route, he said. The FDOT originally funded the route for a two-year term as a demonstration project, and Santa Fe did not want to increase their per-credit-hour tuition fee, he said. So in order to maintain their funding level, we had to stop the route a little earlier, but also increase the frequency. This was a sink or swim time for that particular route. Victoria Swander, a 21-year-old SFC anthropology junior, said she was surprised about the route change. Thats going to be rough on students like myself that dont have a vehicle and depend on the bus to get to class, she said. Although Route 39 was not failing, Skinner said the changes were needed.

HANNA MARCUSAlligator Staff Writerhmarcus@alligator.orgTitletown can now add a new accolade to its list of claims to fame, and its pretty sweet, dude. Real estate website www.estately.com recently named Gainesville as the No. 3 city in the United States for bros. The websites criterion for bros includes males between the ages of 16-25 seemingly stuck in an awkward and extended puberty. These their shaved chests, perpetual posturing and false bravado, the post reads. Some of the reasons Estately chose Gainesville for third place include the citys No. 10 douchiest school award from GQ Magazine, Ryan Lochtes prominence and NPRs labeling him the ultimate bro. bros are Los Angeles and Columbus, Ohio, respectively. Billy Harris, an accounting junior at UF and member of Kappa Sigma, said he agrees the stereotype is alive and well in Gainesville, although it isnt limited to fraternities. I think of a guy thats young and doesnt have a lot of cares, he said. Ilan Shrira, UF social psychology expert who currently teaches at Loyola University in Chicago, said he anticipated bro culture would be stronger in southern cities, he said. That kind of subculture maybe would be stronger in the traditional South because you have more focus on fraternities, he said. Tyler Blair, a 20-year-old UF civil engineering junior and Delta Tau Delta member, said he more-orless agreed when the website called Gainesville a total brotopia. Id say its a little extreme, he said. But its also really suitable for bro life just because theres plenty of places to hang out and go out and relax. While the website emphasizes some negative qualities of the subculture, 20-year-old Chris Sposito, a UF economics junior and Pi Kappa Alpha member, said he sees it as something that symbolizes a special bond between men in a fraternity. I generally think of it positively, he said. Sometimes being a bro and having bros means a lot of times youve gone through a lot of the same things and shared experiences.

The average, according to its website, is 12 named storms, six hurricanes and three major ones. This hurricane season is expected to be more severe than past years, said Mike Spranger, a UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences professor in family, youth and community sciences who created a handbook about preparing for natural disasters. UF emergency management coordinator Kenneth Allen said people should prepare by creating emergency evacuation plans, buying supplies and stocking up on at least three days worth of food and water. In the event of a hurricane at UF, Allen said, on-campus residents living in dorms should follow the advice of their housing staff.

KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Staff WriterIn an effort to cater to out-of-towners and extend the events scope, organizers of the Gainesville-based music festival announced the 12th annual Fest will begin with a pre-party in Ybor City this year, extending the festival by two days. It will run the standard four days in Gainesville, from Oct. 31 to Nov. 3. The pre-party in Ybor City added this year will be Oct. 29-30, offering shows by many of the same bands at discounted prices. Fest organizer Tony Weinbender said adding the days to the front end made sense because it catered to out-oftowners who often arrive early anyway. A lot are from overseas, coming as early as Wednesday, he said. That was an easy move to extend it. Weinbender also said coordinating logistics in Tampa was a natural choice because the circles of people often already overlap. The Tampa music scene is very close to the Gainesville scene, he said. Pat Lavery, who handles booking for Fest venue High Dive, said the Fest extension could present pros and cons locally because business is more spread out. Now, it appears Fest goers will have two or three times the number of options, he said in an email interview. If it means a lower turnout for the Fest in Gainesville and smaller crowds for each participating venue, then that could Gainesville community. As for drawing attendees away from Gainesville, Weinbender said hes not worried. For many, he said, rocking at Fest in its city of origin is one of a kind. People like the experience, he said.

I feel like Im moving fast, moving as well anybody out there, Powell said. Powell used his quickness to lead Florida with six sacks in 2011, his last full season.

Weve seen it before but its always that, OK, lets see how he comes back off the injury. Powell said he learned more about himself while recovering from the injury. He was on track to return during the season before suffering a setback in September. Especially when youre going through something as hard as that, you never thought you would go through you got to strap up and take it on full speed, he said. Powell looked promising during Floridas open practices during fall camp, blowing by offensive linemen in drills and scrimmages. (He makes) a big difference because hes so physical, linebacker Neiron Ball said. Hes such a big for us. Powell said his knee has been absorbing contact during practices, and he has not had any issues. The only problems he has had are reminding himself about hand placement and keeping his feet moving. He had a lot of anxiety about coming back, Durkin said. Hes doing really well out there, been in contact drills and doing great. Looking forward to him getting out on Sophomore Dante Fowler Jr. absence last season. This year the two will see plenty of time on the hybrid Buck position and will play on the line and at linebacker. We can be in nickel, we can be in regular, Powell said.

Without a scholarship, and coming from Herndon survived on Pop Tarts and Ramen Noodles last season. But he will no longer have to wonder where his next meal is coming from. Herndon was one of two Gators who was awarded a scholarship following practice Tuesday afternoon. He can now eat with the rest of the team. It brought tears to my eyes, Herndon and tell her. She was ecstatic about it. Tim Clark, a safety who is entering his a third season. I thought that said a lot about our coaches for honoring that commitment to me, Clark said. Its really been a blessing. Herndon, who is an Ocala native, does not ing a scholarship. He played in six games last season, mostly on special teams, but could be counted on even more early in the season. Starting running back Matt Jones battled a serious viral infection in the offseason and has not practiced with the team. For as long as Jones remains out, Herndon will be the No. 2 running back behind Mack Brown. Me and Matt are teammates, so we talk and hang out, Herndon said. I was sad, but if hes down, I gotta step up because the team needs me. Thats what I did. Florida now has 83 scholarship players on the roster. The NCAA limit is 85. Ball moving outside: Neiron Ball has had a tumultuous past two seasons. In 2011, he was diagnosed with an arteriovenous malformation (AVM), a congenital condition that led to the tangling of blood vessels in his brain.

According to coach Will Muschamp, Mike Taylor (Mike linebacker) and Ronald Powell (Sam linebacker) will join Ball in the starting linebacker rotation until Antonio Morrison returns from suspension.

Valdez Showers, who switched positions from safety to running back this offseason, is the teams No. 3 tailback with Jones out. When asked about the running back totem pole on Monday, Muschamp said Showers was ahead of highly touted freshmen Kelvin Taylor and Adam Lane, who have each struggled with ball security and pass protection.

Editors note: A version of this story originally ran June 20. Sydney Moss has since decided to transfer to Thomas More College.PHIL HEILMANAlligator Staff WriterSydney Moss dealt the Gators a painful blow when she announced on Tuesday that she would not be returning to the Florida womens basketball program next season. Moss is one of three UF players along with Chandler Cooper and Vicky McIntyre to leave the program this offseason. Understandably, Amanda Butler and her coaching staff hoped to hold onto their star player. Sources told the Alligator that Butler and lier this month hoping to convince Moss to reconsider her decision to leave the program. Moss urged the not change her mind. Both Moss and McIntyre conGators basketball program on Tuesday. In her only season with the Gators, Moss was second on the team in scoring, averaging 11.8 points per game. She overcame a midseason slump to carry the Gators to the Final Four of the WNIT and showed a level of poise that made her a strong candidate to develop into an All-Southeastern Conference caliber player as a sophomore next season. Sydney wants to be close to her mom and home. We wish her, Chandler and Vicky the best, coach Amanda Butler said. loss of the offseason. Her greatest score. Often the teams best offensive threat, she managed to add 6.8 rebounds and 3.9 assists per contest during the season. Moss was named to the 2013 AllSEC Freshman Team and the 2013 postseason WNIT All-Tournament Team for her performance. McIntyre, a 6-foot-7 center, would have been a senior in 201314. She played just one season at UF after transferring from Oklahoma collegiate seasons. In 2011, two coaches on staff at Oklahoma State were killed in a plane crash while traveling on a recruiting trip. After the season, McIntyre chose to look for a fresh start and ended up at Florida, where she averaged 4.8 points and 3.8 rebounds while playing in 29 games, including three starts. However, McIntyre did not play in any of Floridas postseason games. Neither she nor Butler offered any reasoning for her absence at the time, and McIntyres decision to leave the program was somewhat expected. Earlier this month, Cooper conFlorida to Lipscomb University. Cooper explained the decision as an opportunity to be closer to home she is from Clarksville, Tenn. while also playing basketball in a smaller environment. However, Cooper cited several other factors that weighed into her decision, including a level of dissension within the program, especially among some of the teams younger players and the coaching staff. The three departures come in stark contrast to the direction the program was seemingly headed. After a disappointing regular season in 2012-13, Floridas run in the WNIT offered hope heading into next season. Moss was projected to continue developing into an All-SEC caliber player. She would have been joined by transfers Cassie Peoples and Antoinette Bannister each a highly rated prospect coming out of high school as well as freshman Ronni Williams, a McDonalds High School All-American who has the potential to become Floridas most talented player in school history. Those four, along with the expected return of Viktorija Dimaite, who has missed the past two seasons due to injury and losing only one player, Jennifer George, to graduation, had expectations surrounding the program as high as they have been in some time.

CAMPUS JENSEN WERLEYAlligator Staff Writerjwerley@alligator.orgGraduate assistants can look forward to getting a little more green for their work. UF and Graduate Assistants United, the bargaining unit for more than 4,000 graduate assistants, agreed to a contract that includes pay raises. About 500 graduate assistants will receive a 10 percent increase in their minimum stipends starting on Oct. 1, according to a university news release. This years improved budget allows us to provide additional support to graduate teaching assistants, UF President Bernie Machen said in the release. Their contribution to our education programs is important and very much appreciated. The 500 students were earning less than the new minimum stipend. The new contract includes an across-the-board increase of 4.4 percent to new and existing graduate assistants base salaries. This is great news, said UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes. President Machen has long supported helping lift our grad students, which are an important piece of the broader university community. The next step for the agreement vice president for human resource services, wrote in an email. GAUs membership and UFs Board of Trustees still must OK the agreement, according to the release. The increases are very good news and shows the commitment by the president in support of our GAs, Fussell said. Other compensation announcements regarding UF employees were announced earlier this summer and included eligible staff receiving a 3.5 percent salary increase and eligible faculty seeing an increase in their annual base pay, Fussell said. Eligible faculty who earn less than $40,000 will receive a $1,400 increase in base pay, and those earning more than $40,000 will get part-time and full-time status, according to the release. Funds for faculty merit raises will be available on Oct. 1 for faculty that did not qualify for the bargaining unit, according to the statement.Graduate assistants to get pay raise beginning Oct. 1 Current and new minimum annual stipends for graduate assistants A 1.0 FTE number is for a full-time, 40-hour-per-week-employee. .25 is for 10 hours per week.

Yohos food stamp hypocrisy harmsEarlier this summer, I worked as an intern at the AFL-CIO national headquarters in Washington, DC. The AFL-CIO is a national confederation of labor unions that advocates on behalf of American workers, including the working poor. As part of my internship, I had the opportunity to meet with Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL), the congressman who represents Gainesville, to discuss legislation proposed in Congress that would raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour from its current level of $7.25. Although the congressman and I had sharply divergent opinions about the merits of increasing the minimum wage, our conversation was respectful and cordial. struggles of minimum wage workers in America because he and his wife relied on food stamps to supplement their meager income early in their marriage. He said that, although he opposed giving government assistance to the working class, he had a strong desire to increase economic growth to help ensure prosperity for all Americans. Unfortunately, recent statements made by Rep. Yoho suggest that his actual views on the plight of the poor and working class in America are much less charitable than he initially led me to believe. According to Right Wing Watch, a website that reports on statements made by conservative Republicans relating to key issues, Yoho casually dismissed the problem of hunger in America as nonexistent at a recent town hall meeting. I think theres 330 million people starving, at least three times a day, Yoho said. We call it breakfast, lunch and dinner. Yoho asserted that millions of Americans who Assistance Program (SNAP, often called food stamps) are not truly in need of government assistance. He said cutting the SNAP program would not cause harm to anyone and that not one person would lose a calorie or a crumb that deserves it. Yohos callous joke and his portrayal of many SNAP growing problem of food insecurity in America. Feeding America, a hunger advocacy group, reported point during 2009. This means that millions of Americans, many of whom are employed in minimum-wage or low-wage jobs, are frequently unable to afford enough food for themselves and their families. Rep. Yohos opposition to measures like fully funding which would help combat the problems of poverty interests of his constituents and those of the nation as a whole. His support for eviscerating the American social safety net despite relying on it himself in the past is deeply hypocritical. The people of Gainesville and Alachua County, particularly the working poor, deserve advocates in Congress to help ensure that their most basic needs are being met. Rep. Yohos hypocritical, destructive and false statements show that he lacks the integrity required to effectively represent his constituents.

The technology fee awards focus on enhancing instructional technology resources, said UF Information Technology spokeswoman Tracy Gale. The money for the projects comes from a state-mandated technology fee, which in 2009. This year, about $700,000 in funding was allocated for 11 upcoming campus projects. Technology changes so fast, she said. The tech fee allows us to deliver cuttingedge software and services to meet the changing needs of not only the technology but our students and faculty. Gale said the time it takes to implement the projects will vary. Proposals that call for classroom renovation would have taken place in the summer, she said. Sara Gonzalez, a science and technology librarian, applied and received funding for the 3-D printer that will be in the Marston Science Liare now requiring employees to be able to use these printers, she said, the 3-D printer is something students should become experienced with before graduation. Peggy Carr, associate dean and professor for the College of Design, Construction and Planning, received funding for the creation of a joint digital fabrication laboratory.

HANNA MARCUSAlligator Staff Writer hmarcus@alligator.orgAlthough the square plot of land near the intersection of 13th Street and West University Avenue is vacant, its been stirring up dialogue for months. Miami-based development company the Swerdlow Group has been working with the City of Gainesville to legally amend the citys comprehensive plan to allow construction of a new multi-story residential development called University Corners. Via two proposals, the company asked Gainesville to adopt two separate ordinances to rezone the property to allow a taller building something the current zoning wouldnt allow. Under current law, they could do the same project, but not quite as big, said City Commissioner Thomas Hawkins. Gainesville is going to grow. Were trying to make it grow, but we only have a certain amount of space. We need to allow people to build taller buildings to accommodate for that. A multi-story building would offer more jobs and more opportunities, Hawkins said. Because of the location and the number of people that could reside at the University Corners building, Hawkins said, costs such as transduced for residents. However, not all Gainesville residents are ready to support the project. Lisa Limpert, a 58-year-old Gainesville resident, said she does not support the proposed ordinance.

12, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21, 2013 Editors note: A version of this story originally ran July 2.KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Staff WriterSTARKE Church steeples along roads and a Ten Commandments monument at the courthouse were among the most apparent religious symbols of Starke until June 29, that is. Thats when another symbol joined the predominantly Baptist town 30 miles northeast of sored monument erected on government property in the U.S., according to the American Atheists group. Under cloudy skies, about 300 people pressed in front of the Bradford County Courthouse to witness the unveiling of the monument: a 4-foot-tall granite pillar with a bench attached bearing inscriptions of quotes from famous atheists. Although Bradford County Commissioner Danny Riddick, who cally express approval of the monument, he emphasized the opportunity to ask questions. By having both monuments side by side, I hope [visitors can] search true meanings, he said. This is the most important decision a person can make: What to do with God? When Riddick read a Bible verse that included serve the Lord, someone in the crowd yelled, serve nobody! light in Starke when New Jerseyalong with a local resident, sued the county in 2005 for a lighted cross that used to perch on top of a water tower. It was removed in 2007. Then, in 2012, a local Christian mens group paid about $20,000 to install the Ten Commandments monument at the courthouse, according to American Atheists. It caught the attention of the group and sparked a lawsuit, which led to a series of negotiations with Bradford County government, which ended in the agreement to erect a second monument presenting an alternative viewpoint. For many, the monument is an issue of regional identity. hand, 20-year-old Marshall Rawson said the new monument is disrespectful to the regions heritage because it is imposing Northern tion of morality on an area that may not be rooted in the same valcapitol post-Civil War during Andrew Jacksons presidency. Our push is to preserve our Southern heritage, he said. Every nation should have a cultural identity. However, Bridget Gaudette, a local activist and a director for Foundation Beyond Belief who also spoke during the ceremony, said the monument does represent the ideals of a segment of the local population. She said the willingness of American Atheists to draw attention to the Starke courthouse helped other local atheists who had been quiet about their beliefs to organize. With the weight of a national organization behind them, they were more willing to step forward, she said. lawsuit against the courthouse, was one. He stepped up to the lectern cargo shirt with the sleeves rolled up. When Cooney wanted to combat the Ten Commandments monument, he lacked the resources to speak up on friend with a big stick. He found that friend in American Atheists. The speeches during the dedication ceremony were punctuated by blasts from semi truck horns. Thats because Patti Hinds, the owner of two businesses that share stood across the street with a group of about 10 people holding signs for Jesus, written in marker. Gospel music blared from the stereo of a green Chevy Silverado parked on the curb. Although Hinds said she thought it important to protest, she said the new monument probably wont have a lasting impact. I think its just people kicking and screaming, she said. President of American Atheists Dave Silverman closed the ceremony, saying the historic code is the invokes violence on those who dont follow it. He then condemned the penalties associated with breaking the Ten Commandments. The atheist monument, he said, represents ideals without underlying threats. And then someone pulled the red cloth from the monument. As people crowded around the monument to take photos, Canadian evangelist Sye Ten Bruggencate climbed on top of the bench. He set down a plastic toilet seat and a roll of toilet paper and declared the monument was complete. Spurred on by an angry crowd, a bystander hurled the toilet paper away and tried to snatch the seat. Ten Bruggencate climbed down and tucked the toilet seat under his arm. I think we have to engage people rationally, he said. It was a joke, but it exposed their intolerance. Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith, who attended the ceremony out of uniform, said he didnt recognize any of the outspoken evangelicals at the event. Most, he said, had already come to terms with the monument and allowed it to be unveiled peacefully. After Ten Bruggencate stood on the monument, the bench began sliding out of place. A deputy roped off a small area surrounding it with yellow crime-scene tape and orange happened because the grout holding the monument together hadnt fully hardened. This thing started sliding, and I said Oh, Lord, he said with a chuckle. Although American Atheists asserted it will erect similar monuments across the country, the Rev. Les Singleton, of Micanopy, said he thinks the situation in Starke was handled with a good compromise. Its probably a satisfactory resolution to put something alongside instead of removing, he said. But he said the Starke monument will have limited impact. Id be surprised if its more than a blip in the news, he said. I think its a hiccup.First atheist monument on government property unveiledShannon Kaestle / AlligatorBradford County Courthouse is home to the pillar

Editors note: A version of this story originally ran May 21. THE COMPANY AND UF ARE STILL NEGOTIATING. SAMANTHA SCHUYLERAlligator Contributing WriterDue to an outstanding debt of almost $30,000, delivery of both The New York Times and USA Today to the UF campus was suspended this summer. The readership program, which provides free digital and physical copies of both papers to students, is a partnership between the two companies. USA Today handles the contracting and billing to the school as well as distribution of the paper. According to a USA Today representative who preferred to remain anonymous, Student Government and USA Today signed a service agreement that called for $66,590 for the 2012-13 school year. SG submitted a purchase order for $40,000. We get a call from USA Today within the last month saying, Youve got to cancel all the papers at UF because theyre not going to pay their bill, said Kevin Cappallo, national director of education sales for The New York Times. Theres an outstanding balance of, Im thinking, 20-something-thousand. But UF Student Body President Christina Bonarrigo said she was not aware of a vote to reduce the allocation. I am aware that a purchase agreement was made for a certain amount of money and that UF honored that agreement, she said. She said the contract, signed in 2010, featured a clause that said funds were subject to availability. We went through the proper avenues of the program that was requested, Bonarrigo said. It was passed through the senate body and the Budget and Appropriations Committee. The USA Today representative said a conference call was scheduled in an attempt to work with SG, but the students were a no-show. Similarly, Cappallo said hes had trouble reaching SG. I have made several overtures to contact the president of SGA, he said. Ive tried contacting the adviser of SGA and havent gotten any response. However, Bonarrigo said she talked to the USA Today representative twice in early May. We discussed options about the program, she said. [The representative] hoped we would continue the program for the upcoming years, and its something the Senate would discuss in the upcoming years budget. According to the representative, USA Today had been trying to get in contact with SG since the beginning of the year. It was only until recently that they communicated with Bonarrigo after she had been contacted by the Alligator for information. [SG] didnt say, Youre spending too much of our money. we would have dug further, the representative said. But instead, nobody got that message to the USA As a result of the reduced purchasing order, both papers will be forced to write off the debt, but for now will not be sending the universitys account to collections, which could show negligent activity and lower the universitys credit score, according to the representative. Itd be a shame for [the program] to end, said Patrick Reakes, Chairman of Library West. I know its been heavily used by the students. While USA Today believes the university should be liable for the papers used, it still wants to continue the program.

Of that, most UF students will pay about $30 Bright Futures, which recently went up, covers most of the extra charge. The board was obligated to comply with state statutes mandating a 1.7 percent anwere reticent to pass the higher tuition rate trustee Christopher Corr even asked what would happen if they broke the law. Im really required to follow the law. The law may not be what everybody wants the law to be, chairman David Brown said. But it is, in fact, the law. Trustee Carolyn Roberts said the decision put the board in a very uncomfortable position because she agreed with the governors consideration of Florida families. To lessen the blow of the tuition hike, the board agreed to put half of the resultaid and half toward campus maintenance. The administration tried every means attending the University of Florida, said President Bernie Machen. nancial discussion when the board voted to raise his annual compensation to $725,492 a possible $750,500 if employee raises come through. His former total compensation had been $565,492. His base salary was increased by $60,000 retroactive to Jan. 1, but that money is not from taxpayers. The Florida Legislature caps the public contributions to a public university presidents pay at $225,000. Machens new base salary will be $500,158, so non-public funds will pay for his raise. His term was also extended through the end of 2014. That means Machen will be at UF for its state-designated creation of the eCampus, an institute for online learning. UF Provost Joe Glover said by January 2014, eCampus grams. We can only have 6,500 students every year, he said.

The family of Rebecca Harris, a UF student killed July 11, 2012 in a hit and run, installed a ghost bike at the intersection of Southwest 16th Avenue and Archer Road for the anniversary of her death. way to balance the brightness and joy with also a thought that people would think about drinking and driving, said her father, 48-yearold James Harris. Maybe students who pass by the ghost bike will see it and think about its purpose. Ghost bikes are small somber memorials for bicyclists killed or hit on the street. A bicycle is painted entirely white and locked to a street sign near the crash site to serve as a reminder of the tragedy and as a quiet statement in support of cyclists rights to safe travel. James Harris and his family decided to bring ghost bikes to Gainesville and felt it would be the ideal way to remember their Becca. They used a bike belonging to Rebecca Harris older sister, Anna Harris. James Harris spray-painted it white and decorated it with I wanted it to look kind of ghostly at night, James Harris said. because Rebecca was a very happy young lady and full of life. The Harris family put a poster by the bike that reads Drive Sober. A picture of Rebecca Harris along with a description of what happened the night of the accident is there as well.

I was glad to hear from Rebeccas family when they contacted me and was heartened to know that they were trying to create something positive out of Rebeccas tragic death last year, she said. I thought that the ghost bike was a beautiful and powerful way to honor Rebeccas memory. Catherine Harris, 21, Rebecca Harris twin sister and a UF public relations senior, said she believed the ghost bike would raise awareness of the situation. Even if the bike will only affect one person, thats a plus, she said. I hope that people will see it and think twice. Just stop for a minute and think.

Munchies 420 Cafe, a Midtown restaurant popular for late-night snacking, was replaced by The Rowdy Reptile bar. Munchies, located at 1702 W. University Ave. in the UF Plaza, will be reopening at a different Gainesville location, but owner J.D. Chester said he couldnt yet disclose where.

Chester said he felt that moving the Gainesville Munchies to a smaller space could evoke a small-town feel similar to that of the original restaurant. The move will also give Munchies a chance to create a better atmosphere, he said. It needs bumper stickers all over the wall, Chester said. This place is just too big for that. The new location could possibly be a Munchies Express, Chester said, but all of the most popular items will be there. Crispyn Coller, a 23-year-old UF alumnus who works at UF Plaza, said he was a little disappointed by the decision to turn the space into a bar because there are already so many drink venues in Midtown. Coller said he usually ate at Munchies because it was convenient, and now that its moving, he said hell miss the Dankalicious Chicken Nugs, which he said were his favorite. 20, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21, 2013Munchies moves for new bar It needs bumper stickers all over the wall.

EMILY BUCHANANAlligator Contributing Writer it harder to catch a ride on RTS bus route 39. RTS slated three primary changes, wrote RTS Transit Planner Matthew Muller in an email. The service will run more frequently but in a condensed window of time, and it will enter campus on a different street, he said. The old route, which ran every 90 minutes, will begin running every 60 minutes. It previously ran until 5:45 p.m., but under the new schedule, it will terminate at 3:30 p.m. and will enter campus from Northwest 83rd Street, instead of Northwest 91st Street. The changes are coming about because Route 39 has been funded by Santa Fe and the Florida Department of Transportation, said RTS spokesman Chip Skinner. The FDOTs funding share has recently expired making Santa Fe the sole provider for the route, he said. The FDOT originally funded the route for a two-year term as a demonstration project, and Santa Fe did not want to increase their per-credit-hour tuition fee, he said. So in order to maintain their funding level, we had to stop the route a little earlier, but also increase the frequency. This was a sink or swim time for that particular route. Victoria Swander, a 21-year-old SFC anthropology junior, said she was surprised about the route change. Thats going to be rough on students like myself that dont have a vehicle and depend on the bus to get to class, she said. Although Route 39 was not failing, Skinner said the changes were needed. The route was performing well but not up to our expectations, said Skinner.SFC bus route shortenedLOCAL

HANNA MARCUSAlligator Staff Writerhmarcus@alligator.orgTitletown can now add a new accolade to its list of claims to fame, and its pretty sweet, dude. Real estate website www.estately.com recently named Gainesville as the No. 3 city in the United States for bros. The websites criterion for bros includes males between the ages of 16-25 seemingly stuck in an awkward and extended puberty. These their shaved chests, perpetual posturing and false bravado, the post reads. Some of the reasons Estately chose Gainesville for third place include the citys No. 10 douchiest school award from GQ Magazine, Ryan Lochtes prominence and NPRs labeling him the ultimate bro. bros are Los Angeles and Columbus, Ohio, respectively. Billy Harris, an accounting junior at UF and member of Kappa Sigma, said he agrees the stereotype is alive and well in Gainesville, although it isnt limited to fraternities. I think of a guy thats young and doesnt have a lot of cares, he said. Ilan Shrira, UF social psychology expert who currently teaches at Loyola University in Chicago, said he anticipated bro culture would be stronger in southern cities, he said. That kind of subculture maybe would be stronger in the traditional South because you have more focus on fraternities, he said. Tyler Blair, a 20-year-old UF civil engineering junior and Delta Tau Delta member, said he more-orless agreed when the website called Gainesville a total brotopia. Id say its a little extreme, he said. But its also really suitable for bro life just because theres plenty of places to hang out and go out and relax. While the website emphasizes some negative qualities of the subculture, 20-year-old Chris Sposito, a UF economics junior and Pi Kappa Alpha member, said he sees it as something that symbolizes a special bond between men in a fraternity. I generally think of it positively, he said. Sometimes being a bro and having bros means a lot of times youve gone through a lot of the same things and shared experiences. Thats what makes you bros.Can you brolieve it? Gainesville named No. 3 city for dudes Editors note: A version of this story originally ran May 30. MCKENZIE DOLLAlligator Contributing WriterThe 2013 hurricane season is in full swing, and experts are predicting serious storms. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Atlantic hurricane season outlook estimated a 70 percent likelihood of up to 20 named storms, of which up to 11 could become hurricanes including up to six Category 3s, 4s or 5s. The average, according to its website, is 12 named storms, six hurricanes and three major ones. This hurricane season is expected to be more severe than past years, said Mike Spranger, a UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences professor in family, youth and community sciences who created a handbook about preparing for natural disasters. UF emergency management coordinator Kenneth Allen said people should prepare by creating emergency evacuation plans, buying supplies and stocking up on at least three days worth of food and water. In the event of a hurricane at UF, Allen said, on-campus residents living in dorms should follow the advice of their housing staff. Off-campus residents The university is constantly working to keep the students, faculty and staff as safe and well-prepared as we can, Allen said. UF will only cancel classes and close campus if there is a real danger, spokesman Steve Orlando said.This years hurricane season predicted to be a stormy oneUF is prepared for emergencies

Editors note: A version of this story originally ran May 14. IT RUNS OCT. 29 NOV. 3. KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Staff WriterIn an effort to cater to out-of-towners and extend the events scope, organizers of the Gainesville-based music festival announced the 12th annual Fest will begin with a pre-party in Ybor City this year, extending the festival by two days. It will run the standard four days in Gainesville, from Oct. 31 to Nov. 3. The pre-party in Ybor City added this year will be Oct. 29-30, offering shows by many of the same bands at discounted prices. Fest organizer Tony Weinbender said adding the days to the front end made sense because it catered to out-oftowners who often arrive early anyway. A lot are from overseas, coming as early as Wednesday, he said. That was an easy move to extend it. Weinbender also said coordinating logistics in Tampa was a natural choice because the circles of people often already overlap. The Tampa music scene is very close to the Gainesville scene, he said. Pat Lavery, who handles booking for Fest venue High Dive, said the Fest extension could present pros and cons locally because business is more spread out. Now, it appears Fest goers will have two or three times the number of options, he said in an email interview. If it means a lower turnout for the Fest in Gainesville and smaller crowds for each participating venue, then that could Gainesville community. As for drawing attendees away from Gainesville, Weinbender said hes not worried. For many, he said, rocking at Fest in its city of origin is one of a kind. People like the experience, he said. Its kind of a rite of passage. 24, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21, 2013CAMPUS Editors note: A version of this story originally ran July 23.SEAN STEWART-MUNIZAlligator Contributing WriterGator Growl 2013 will be a little different.

[Before,] you had household names like Dave Chappelle, Gabriel Iglesias, Daniel Tosh, he said. The Fray would have been really cool if it was 2008. Funk said Sister Hazels appearance will probably draw older alumni to Gator Growl. The Fray targets the younger but still graduated crowd. He said new and current students have little to look forward to for performances. Gator Growl public relations director Alyssa Fagien said although the alumni are heavily considered, the interests of current UF students are still important when choosing talent. You are always going to have people that are disappointed, she said. I personally am really excited for this year. Public relations freshman Nayara BritoEstrada, 17, said she will be spending the fourday Homecoming weekend in Orlando at the Electric Daisy Carnival. Why would I go to Gator Growl when I could go to EDC? she said. Its more expensive, yeah, but there are just so many more artists I like there. Fagien said that although EDC can be appealing, techno events happen frequently. Growl is only once a year. But ticket prices have gone up for students, it now costs $17 to attend Gator Growl. Guests tickets are $27. Producer Megan Harmon said the $2 price raise was routine.

ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff WriterZiva Recek was as good as anyone could have expected in 2012. As a freshman, Recek led the Gators with four kills per set and was named the Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Year, the AVCA Freshman of the Year and was selected to the All-SEC team. After that kind of year, how could a player improve? Be a sophomore, coach Mary Wise said. The 6-foot outside hitter brought in this year she wants to bring home national hardware. We have a really good team this year, Recek said. We want to keep playing as long as we can. Recek said she has put a lot of work into improving for her second season of college volleyball. She has a lot to live up to. She led the team in kills with 440 in 2012, topping middle blocker Chloe Manns total of 380. I was just doing a lot of individual work and taking all the reps in the gym, Recek said. Whenever I had a chance to swing the ball, I want to do my best. However, the word is out about Floridas European threat. The difference will be Ziva will not take anybody by surprise anymore, Wise said. She will be the highlight on everyones scouting report. It took Recek some time to adjust to living in the U.S. and playing with UF, but she said she feels more comfortable American food she enjoys. Americans have good Italian restaurants, she said.

Often the teams best offensive threat, she managed to add 6.8 rebounds and 3.9 assists per contest during the season.

She played just one season at UF after transferring from Oklahoma collegiate seasons.
