GRIFFIN HORVATHAlligator Staff WriterGainesville residents are split on a recent decision from the U.S. Supreme Court that exempts birth control options from mandated business health insurance coverage. The Supreme Court announced on Monday its decision on Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores Inc., ruling that family-owned corporations arent required to provide insurance coverage for contraceptives in an effort to respect individual religious freedoms. Steven Willis, a UF law professor, said some corporations argued against requirements to provide contraceptives, such as the morning after pill and intrauterine devices. An IUD generally prevents conception but it can also prevent implantation, which would be in a lot of peoples religious views an abortion, he said. The Rev. David Ruchinski, a priest at St. Augustine Church on University Avenue, said the ruling enables a family-run business to exercise the same rights that are guaranteed to everyone else under the Constitution. Thats why theres the freedom of religion clause in the Bill of Rights, he said. But the courts decision has also been met with heavy criticism. Its an interesting time right now in America in regards to birth control and policy, said Dustin Arceneaux, director of education at Planned Parenthood of North Florida. Arceneaux said birth control options have a lot of positives, aside from conventional use, including preventing ovarian cancer and endometriosis. People were counting on the Supreme Court to rule in favor of the birth control options, he said.Supreme Court birth control decision divides Gainesville residentsLocal activists speak outLOCAL ALEX HARRISAlligator Staff Writ eraharris@alligator.orgIllegally parking at a friends apartment complex just for a minute now has an even more expensive consequence. The Gainesville City Commission voted 5-2 to raise the rates of roam towing at its last meeting, which raised the rate from $76 to $100 for light-duty vehicles. Mayor Ed Braddy and Commissioner Randy Wells voted against the measure. rate hike since 1994, when the roam towing rate was $70, Commissioner Todd Chase said. Since then, towing companies argued, expenses have gone up. At the meeting, UF Student Body President Cory Yeffet spoke against the decision, which was made in the last meeting. Yeffet said he would support raising towing fees if it were but he called this jump unsubstantiated and arbitrary. He voiced concern that rising fees would increase predatory practices of local roam towing companies. that $76 is pretty high as is, he said. Especially compared to the cost of getting your car towed regularly if it breaks down. UFs Student Senate has been vocal against towing fee raises in the past.

Zeng was fed up with the lack of an established place to cross near the bus stop. First, he emailed the Gainesville City Commission. After a few weeks of no reply, he started a petition to the Alachua County Public Works titled Build a crosswalk near RTS Stop 810 on SW 20th Ave. I met another person who emailed the city about it, and we found out that we both got ignored, he said.

June 30, 1977 A so-called Deep Throat bill grabbed its last gasp on June 29. The bill would have created camand coursework before it could be presented to students. The idea for the bill came when a University of raphy. Then-Gov. Reubin Askew vetoed the bill. July 3, 1984 The age of underclassmen legally raging at frat parties came to an end by federal mandate in 1984. The U.S. Congress told states that if they didnt raise their minimum drinking age to 21 within two years, then they would withhold funds. The governor was considering doing it to prevent the loss of $75 million in highway funds. If they didnt get that money, they would either have to stop the expansion of the interstate system or pull the money from elsewhere, like the education budget. KRISTAN WIGGINS TUESDAY, JULY 1, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 3 April Dudash / AlligatorDean Jordan, left, and the Gainesville kiting There isnt infrastructure for a crosswalk The petition was addressed to county transportation engineering manager Brian Singleton, who came up with a compromise. We reviewed the requests last week, and due to there not being a sidewalk on the north side of Southwest 20th Avenue, we can not put a crosswalk in, he said. The correct infrastructure just isnt there. The List of Priority Projects approved by the Metropolitan Transportation Planning Organization for the Gainesville Urbanized Area for the next project for that area, either. A crosswalk for that area would be really nice, said Sean Lan, a 20-yearold UF nutrition junior. That area is pretty congested, especially around rush hour. It takes a long time to even make a turn into The Estates. Southwest 20th Avenue is listed on Gainesvilles List of Priority Projects as a road operating at an unacceptable highway level of service, with a Level of Service score of F, meaning that the drive down the road is not smooth and steady. The public works department is scheduled to place signs indicating pedestrian crossing the week of July 7 on the corner of Southwest 20th Avenue and Southwest 34th Street. I feel good about (the signs), Zeng said. Even if some people ignore it, at least one person will see it, and it will make the city safer. CROSSWALK, from page 1A protest is scheduled at Hobby LobbyPlanned Parenthood is hoping that employers will stand with their employees and provide them these options, Arceneaux said. On Aug. 1, a demonstration is scheduled for the opening day of a new Hobby Lobby in Gainesville to protest the Supreme Courts decision. Michela Martinazzi, a lead organizer with UF Students for a Democratic Society, decided on Monday to hold the demonstration. She said shes against the Supreme Courts decision because women entering the workplace will have their boss dictate whether or not they will have birth control. The 22-year-old UF alumna said Students for a Democratic Society will be joined by the Alachua County Labor Party and is reaching out to the Occupy Gainesville movement to participate. I hope this leads to more successful events and more people join throughout the country, Martinazzi said.

Late Periods: Keep calm and carry on I always look forward to my annual doctors appointment. I went to one a couple weeks ago, and it was a welcome reminder that my blood pressure is good and my allergies still suck. It was enjoyable, that is, until my doctor insisted on running a pregnancy test. Sure, I hadnt had my period for a few months, but I chalked that up to stress messing up my bodys cycles. I had even taken an at-home test just to be sure. But the chance, however small, that I might be pregnant sent me into a spiral of worry: What if my at-home pregnancy test was wrong? Can I really go nine months without drinking? How much do DNA tests cost? My parents are going to kill me. I cant have a child. I am a child. Despite being on the pill and using a condom every time I had sex, I was still worried. I might have even sent some choicely worded texts to my best friend about how Satans spawn might be growing in my womb. In the end, I was worrying for nothing. The test came back negative. Youre welcome, mom and dad. My doctor said my period was just late due to lower estrogen levels caused by stress-related weight loss. But the experience reminded me of so many other pregnancy scares that college-induced promiscuity has made too real for my friends, my classmates and myself. If you have a uterus and you have even been near a penis, youve probably gone through a similar baby-related frenzy. Anytime my period is late, I convince myself its because Im pregnant, regardless of how biologically impossible that might be. There are a lot of legitimate medical explanations for a late or missed period stress, weight gain, weight loss and increased exercise to name a few. Conveniently, these are also side effects of a typical college lifestyle. Sorry, freshmen. Now you have to wonder if your body is telling you youre pregnant or if youre just worried about failing organic chemistry. So, a PSA to the Summer B newcomers: Chances are, youll be an unwilling participant in your very own pregnancy scare at least once over You can tell yourself that it wont happen, but sure Break, youll be taking a pregnancy test alone in the Target bathroom. Not that it happened to me. Sorry, mom and dad. Its okay, though. Pregnancy scares happen, and theyre possible no matter how much protection you use. Take myself as an hardest. Once you get through that, youll learn what will best help you get through any future pregnancy freakouts Everyone is different, but I like having ice cream and a friend with me. One of my best friends never tells her partner about the scares. Everything is up to you. dont panic. Youre probably still going to, regardless of my advice, but youll have your answer for better or for worse in the time it takes to go to the convenience store, pee on a stick and wait for the result. While youre waiting for your fate to be decided in the form of a thin blue minus or plus mark, consider stocking up on some condoms. If we can learn anything from these scares, its that protection is a must. The only totally effective form of birth control, though, is abstinence. If you are having vaginal sex, however, use a contraceptive method to cut down on your risk, or these scares will be a monthly occurrence. In the end, everything comes down to what the pregnancy test says. If you are pregnant, good luck. As the child-hating soul I am, I wouldnt wish that on anyone. Be sure to discuss your options with your partner and a medical professional. But if the test comes back negative? Congratulations. Go ahead and get Im-not-pregnant-so-fetal-alcohol-syndrome-isnt-my-problem drunk. Robyn Smith is a UF journalism junior.

In actuality, it opens a dangerous precedent and ignores the hypocrisy of the businesses that fought for the right to deny reproductive health care resources for female employees. One of the businesses in particular, Hobby Lobby, has some inconsistencies worth noting. partment of Labor and dated December 2012 three months Hobby Lobby 401(k) employee retirement plan held more than $73 million in mutual funds with investments in companies that produce emergency contraceptive pills, intrauterine devices, and drugs commonly used in abortions. Basically, Hobby Lobby has poured millions into funding the contraception makers whose products theyre protesting on the grounds of religious beliefs. But wait, theres more! Hobby Lobby also depends on overseas child labor to produce many of its goods. The Week, an online political publication, wrote, a huge number of American companies outsource labor to China, and thus help prop up this shameful status quo. But very few of these American companies simultaneously trumpet themselves as Christian businesses, arguing in court that providing employees with health insurance covering contraceptives violates their religious beliefs. Sorry, we missed the part in the New Testament where Jesus said, Let the children come to me...with tacky, dirt-cheap horseshoe candle holders they made for $9.77 per day. NBC stated that the burden of paying for necessary contraceptive measures wont be automatically placed upon female workers women enrolled in the health care insurance marketplace may still access preventative health care services and contraceptives. But the ruling, as Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg commented in her dissent, opens the door to a dangerous debate: How will the Supreme Court decide in the future, as a result of this ruling, which religious beliefs are worthy of accommodation? The overwhelming criticism of the Hobby Lobby case is that its only a matter of time before businesses begin employing the religious freedom argument to get out of paying for vaccinations or blood transfusions. So this message, then, is for all Christian business owners who choose to employ religious freedom only when its convenient: You will not get out of providing necessary health care measures for your employees so easily. American citizens are the Obama administration is prepared to take action. So what can you, as a concerned citizen, do? Protest outside your local Hobby Lobby. A Gainesville Hobby Lobby is scheduled to open on 6111 W. Newberry Road, Suite B on Aug. 1, and already, a peaceful protest is scheduled. More information is available on the open Facebook event, titled Gainesville Hobby Lobby Grand Opening Protest. Religious freedom is, of course, a core value in our society: Its the reason America was founded. But, as Nancy Pelosi said, Its just not her boss business.TUESDAY, JULY 1, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/OPINIONS Alex Harris EDITOR Steven Katona Kristan Wiggins MANAGING EDITORS Chloe Finch OPINIONS EDITOR Robyn Smithopinions@alligator.org

TUESDAY, JULY 1, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7 America is suffering from what political scientist Greg Weiner calls narcissistic polity disorder. International developments occur because of and in spite of American foreign policy. The whole world is viewed as an American interest. All foreign policy developments must coincide with our worldview because our best interest is at stake. This is, of course, an arrogant worldview and is outright impossible to reinforce. sources and unrelenting willpower to keep alive this lofty ideal, an ideal that crystallized itself in the Cold-War era. Either way, America is all too willing to accept her janitorial role. With the crisis in Iraq comes the shouts of the interventionists for American presence in the region. Their intent and criticisms of the president are clear, but their endgame is not. Even more muddied than their plan of action is their view of history. The war hawks believe that the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq would have had a different outcome if only the country would have listened to them more intently. Ironically, America is forced to accept the consequences of our campaigns as a result of listening to the hawks for too long. They attribute the fall of Iraq by the Islamic States of Iraq and Syria to the administration and their fellow citizens who want to diminish Americas standing in the world. The contradictory nature of their squawking is their belief that this crisis a crisis brought about predominantly by an American intervention in the Middle East can be solved by another intervention in the Middle East. There is no validity to their claims that new action would produce a positive outcome. The roots for the Iraqi crisis can be atSunni and Shiite Muslims and the Kurds. a religious civil war. ISIS is a radical Sunni militant organization that rose to power as a result of the incompetence and alienation of the Shiite lead al-Maliki government. If our nation intervenes, which is what is likely to occur, America will be caught up in a at the center of Middle Eastern strife. The whole region is at war with itself. Nothing, not even an erroneously described group of 300 military advisers can assuage the situation. The sad reality is once an American adviser in actuality, active combatant in the region is killed in action, the stakes will be insurmountably raised. a battered credibility at that. For too long, our country has taken the brunt of international crises for naught. Intervention in Somalia during the Clinton presidency did not better the country. Intervention from behind in Libya did not leave the country in better standing. And now we are forced into another engagement with a country we should have left a while ago. The hawks do have a point that an American force in Iraq would have stunted the increase in violence, though the trade-offs would be American lives and the participation in an unwinnable, unsolvable engagement for years. It is time that the world becomes responsible for itself. America should not have a moral obligation to intervene in every conBoko Haram in Nigeria, Sen. John McCain was calling for intervention in a country not vital to Americas interest. Intervention would have been a moral decision, but the costs would have been too high and done too little, making it a feel-good but unrealistic endeavor. The policy of our foreign affairs should not be narcissistic or even morally obligated. Maturity and discretion must rule the in the region. ISIS, prior to the arrival of our advisers, did not pose a great threat to America, compared to that of other Middle Eastern countries and Eastern Europe, all things considered. More harm than good will be done as a result of action. And our credibility is not the only thing at risk in the new Iraqi conMichael Beato is a UF economics junior.

8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JULY 1, 2014 Two weeks after adopting Archer, our eight-week-old boxer puppy, my boyfriend and I came home from the UF Small Animal Hospital without him. plans for him. His illness started as kennel cough, a highly contagious upper respiratory disease that plagues dogs in shelters, and the veterinarian gave us antibiotics to treat him for it. A week later, the kennel cough progressed to pneumonia, and the doctor told us that Archer would not recover. We kissed him and held his tiny paws for the last time on a metal table in an isolation room, while blood ran down his nose and his eyes stared blankly. If youre going to adopt a puppy, you need to consider every possible scenario beforehand. Visit veterinarians in the area before you adopt and ask questions. Ask the shelter what the dog has been eating, if it has any allergies and what warning signs to look out for. The ASPCA is an excellent resource regarding the adoption process. If the dog hasnt eaten for an entire day, take it to the vet. If the dog is being unsocial, take it to the vet. If the dog throws up, take it to the vet. Im sure youre beginning to see a pattern here: If anything seems remotely off about the puppy, dont take any chances just bring it to the vet. It sounds expensive, but $200 in preventative care is easier to digest than $1,000 in emergency vet bills and a lifetime of heartbreak.

ASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE Florida will have 159 new laws take effect today that address issues as diverse as spiny lobsters and poetry to abortion and the budget. Among the most noteworthy are laws that will seek to protect children and others from the most dangerous sex offenders. The package of bills sent to Gov. Rick Scott during the 60day session that ended in May. The laws are designed to keep the most violent sexual offenders locked up longer and close loopholes in a law that allows the state to send predators to a high-security treatment center on sentences. More offenders will be subject to potential civil commitment, and prosecutors, detectives and victim advocates will be part of the team that reviews their cases. The sexually violent predator package was part of the broader movement to have a better child welfare system in place in the state of Florida, said Rep. Matt Gaetz, RShalimar, who helped push through the package. No other state in America has a 50-year mandatory minimum prison sentence for violent sexual offenders. Another law seeking to protect children overhauls the Department of Children and Families. It shifts the way the department investigates and responds to cases by clearly stating that protecting a child from abuse is paramount and more important than keeping a family together. It also pays for 270 additional child protective investigators to reduce caseloads and establishes a response team to quickly investigate child abuse deaths when the child had previous dealings with the system. Another law will create a statewide pilot program to pay for foster childrens drivers education classes, license fees and car insurance so to better prepare them to be able to seek jobs when they turn 18 and leave the system. The children of immigrants in the country illegally will be able to receive in-state tuition at state universities after Scott changed his position on the issue. Another bill will give tuition breaks to honorably discharged veterans and waive professional licensing fees for them. Local school boards will have the responsibility of selecting textbooks, whether or not they are on a stateadopted list and will have to put in place policies that allow parents to object to the books they choose. Another new law that took effect June 20 expands a voucher program that gives corporate tax credits to companies that provide money for poor families to send their children to private schools. Among other laws, there will be increased criminal penalties for spiny lobster poachers, people leaving the scene of an accident that causes injury and people who illegally sell prescription drugs. Electronic cigarette sales to minors will also be illegal in Florida. Another law prohibits sending text messages soliciting products to residents on the states no sales solicitation calls list. And Florida will now have a tion ban. Abortions will be illegal in Florida at any point in a womans pregnancy if her doctor determines that the fetus could survive outside the womb. The previous law banned abortions after 24 weeks of pregnancy. An exception can be made if the mothers life is at risk. And new laws will establish a Florida Tourism Hall of Fame and the position of state poet laureate to promote poetry in Florida.159 new laws to take effect in Florida today I think its nice that you can see the building and have all the information about it right in front of you.Emily Peoples17-year-old incoming health science freshman

HANNAH FELLAlligator Writerhfell@alligator.orgIn the countryside of Alachua, past the place where the street signs turn from green to blue, is a tiny one-way road leading into the Retirement Home for Horses at Mill Creek Farm. At Mill Creek, the land seems tinues into a pinpoint, thousands of trees grow to the sky and 128 horses roam in fenced-in stables. This place is a retirement home where horses can live the rest of their lives in peace after spending years in service or neglect. On Saturdays, the home is free to the public from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and cars can park in the grass outside the entrance gate. It was a cloudless Saturday afternoon when people of all ages walked through the gate, eager to see the horses. The air had a faint smell of manure, but no one seemed to mind the smell as they fed the horses whole carrots. A little boy ran through the gate and walked up to a horse with a carrot that was bigger than his arm. brown horse opened her mouth, the boy backed away, scared. But he tried again, stretching his tiny arm through the fence posts. He rot disappear in one bite. The boy smiled as he waddled to the next horse, his light-up shoes blinking with each step. Mary Gregory and her 5-yearold rescue dog, Annie, sat in the drivers seat of a golf cart parked in the shade and watched as people walked through the entrance of Mill Creek, wandering from horse to horse. When you come through the gate as a four-legged animal, you meet a life of luxury, Gregory said as she pet Annies tan fur coat. Isnt that right? she said, leaning toward Annie, who panted in the heat. Mary Gregory grew up in England at a time where horses in drawn carriages roamed the streets. In England, horses retired after years of service. She said that if she ever had the money, she would open up a retirement home for horses. So in 1983, she and her husband, Peter, opened the Retirement Home for Horses at Mill Creek Farm. Peter Gregory unexpectedly passed away in March. He had visions for the farms future, but they doing something he loved: taking care of horses. After his dads sudden death, Paul Gregory took three shirts, packed a single suitcase and drove from Fort Lauderdale to Gainesville. He left behind his job as a realtor to start his new life of taking care of horses. This place is so addictive, he said. You stay here, look at all the land and never want to leave. Last February, the Gregorys bought enough land to take in 28 more horses, but the land sat untouched and untamed. Gregory knew that he had to fulLast Friday, workers installed a well. Volunteers helped clear the land and install a fence. Every day you work here, you can make a difference in an animals life, he said, pausing for just a moment. Or even someone elses life. The best view of the entire property is at the top of a hill, where theres a tiny bench and a small tree. The spot is a memorial for Pauls dog, Sally, who passed away a few months ago. Whenever an animal dies at Mill Creek, it is buried in the Field of their honor. In her lifetime, she has planted 300 trees. Although the work is hard and losing animals is always sad, the Gregory family wants to continue to help horses and share what they do with the community. At 3 p.m., the Gregorys close the gate, and people walk away smiling and laughing. They open their car doors, drive away and talk about the next week, when theyll see the horses once again. 12, ALLIGATOR Hannah Fell / Alligator StaffChristie waits for someone to feed her a carrot at the Retirement Home for Horses at Mill Creek Farm on Saturday. The farm is free and open to the public on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Alachua family provides stable housing for retiring horses THE THERAPY IS UNPROVEN. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSSAN FRANCISCO The U.S. Supreme Court cleared the way Monday California law that bars psychological counseling aimed at turning gay minors straight. The justices turned aside a legal challenge brought by supporters of so-called conversion or reparative therapy. Without comment, they let stand an August 2013 appeals court ruling that said the ban covered professional activities that are within the states authority to regulate and doesnt violate the free speech rights of licensed counselors and patients seeking treatment. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last year that California lawmakers properly showed that therapies designed to change sexual orientation for those under the age of stream and have been disavowed by most major medical groups as unproven and potentially dangerous. The Supreme Court has cement shut any possible opening to allow further psychological child abuse in California, state Sen. Ted Lieu, the laws sponsor, said Monday. The Courts refusal to accept the appeal of extreme ideological therapists who practice the quackery of gay conversion therapy is a victory for child welfare, science and basic humane principles. The law says professional therapists and counselors who use treatments designed to eliminate or reduce same-sex attractions in their patients would be engaging in unprofessional conduct and subject to discipline by state licensing boards. Liberty Counsel, a Christian legal aid group, had challenged the law, as did other supporters of the therapy. They argue that lawmakers have harm. Meanwhile, the Texas Republican Party this month endorsed reparative therapy, adopting policy language recof counseling, which offers reparative therapy and treatment for those patients seeking healing and wholeness from their homosexual lifestyle.Supreme Court bans gay conversion therapyLOCAL GRAHAM HACKAlligator Contributing WriterAlachua County residents and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission disagree about what is to blame for recent bear sightings around the Barr Hammock Preserve. Conservationists and residents living near the preserve blame the sightings on a surge of visitors coming to the area. But the FWC said its the residents who are likely attracting bears into their neighborhoods. Barr Hammock Preserve located just north of the Alachua County and Marion County line, near Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park is home to many different kinds of wildlife, including Florida black bears. But recently, residents living nearby the preserve said they have seen bears and signs of bears in their neighborhood. lives near Barr Hammock, said a bear destroyed her bird feeder and knocked over garbage cans throughout her neighborhood. If you live in this area, thats something you have to Her feeder was mounted on a pole, but she said the pole was completely bent over and the feeder was smashed in half. She said she hasnt put the feeder back up, but when she does, she wont leave it out at night anymore. old who also lives near Barr Hammock Preserve, said she believes the recreational part of the preserve needs to be shut down. After sundown about a month ago, she came home to a bear rummaging through her garbage in her driveway. After hiding in her home until it left, she came outside and found her recycling bins scattered around her yard. Her neighbor, Marc Meisel said when Barr Hammock Preserves sole focus was conservation, there were no bear issues at all. But since the preserve placed added emphasis on recreation, the constant human contact with bears has caused them to start entering neighborhoods. Christin Burford, the director of the Creating Animal Respect Education Foundation, said that is exactly what is happening. She said residents have expressed concerns to the county, but no action has yet been taken to resolve the issue. At least take the neighbors seriously, she said. However, Karen Parker, a spokeswoman for the FWC, said biologists believe human into neighborhoods. Instead, she said the bears were likely attracted to bird feeders and garbage left by residents. If you have attractives in your yard, guess what? Bears will come, she said.Alachua locals dispute reasons behind recent bear sightings If you live in this area, thats something you have to live with.Sandy DouglasAlachua County resident When you come through the gate as a four-legged animal, you meet a life of luxury.Mary GregoryRetirement Home for Horses at Mill Creek Farm owner

TUESDAY, JULY 1, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Tyler Murphy may no longer be a Gator, but alligatorSports looks back at his best game at UF on page 19. @J_McPherson1126When the 2014 NBA Draft was all said and done on Thursday, not one Gator was selected. Not Patric Young, a projected mid-second round pick and the No. 36 prospect on ESPNs Chad Fords Top 100 list. Not Scottie Wilbekin, the reigning Southeastern Conference Player of the Year and a third-team All-American selection. Not Casey Prather or Will Yeguete, who along with Young ished their collegiate campaigns with a Final Four berth. being selected, three former Gators landed spots on NBA summer league teams with the hope to latch onto a roster spot. Young accepted an invitation to play with the New Orleans Pelicans summer team, which begins play on July 11 against the NBA D-League Select Team in Las Vegas. with a 34-48 record in 2014, obtained just one player Louisville guard Russ Smith via trade during the draft. Even with the opportunity to make the roster in New Orleans, it may be a long shot for Young to secure a spot. The Pelicans return Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson at power forward, Jason Smith and Alexis Ajinca at center, and they also traded for Houston Rockets big man Omer Asik on million. Wilbekin will have stints with both the Memphis Grizzlies in the Orlando summer league and the Philadelphia 76ers in Las Vegas this summer, according to his agent Matt Ramker.Alligator File PhotoScottie Wilbekin (above) went undrafted along with fellow Florida teammates Patric Young, Casey Prather and Will Yeguete. Yeguete is the only one of the four Gators to have not signed with an NBA summer league team. Gators shutout in NBA draft, set to play in summer league ALC WAS DISSOLVED. @edenotero_lWith the dissolution of the American Lacrosse Conference, Florida is moving to the Big East. It was announced Thursday that Florida would be joining the Big East for the 2015 season after much debate about where the Gators would land at the end of the 2014 season. ALC since the program started in 2010. Were very excited for this next step for Florida lacrosse, coach Amanda OLeary said in a release. We enjoyed the high level of competition in the ALC, and are looking forward to the new challenges the Big East will provide. Weve built a legacy of success durthing we look to continue while competing in the Big East. Florida and rival Vanderbilt will be moving to the conference together. The two teams join Cincinnati, Connecticut, Georgetown, Marquette, Temple and Villanova to round out the conference with eight teams. With the move, Florida faces the challenge of playing stronger competitors. record and completed the season as ALC regular season and tournament UF racked up four straight ALC regularseason titles, brought home two ALC tournament titles and made four straight Were excited to welcome Florida the Big East Conference, said Chris Schneider, Big East Associate Commissioner for Olympic Sports.

Thus, the Fan Advisory Council was born. It features 13 people with current plans to meet early-to-mid August. The council is composed of one recent graduate, four fans from the lowest donor levels in the UF booster club system, two from the highest donor level and four from the remaining undergraduates, one of whom is senior MitchWest Palm Beach didnt grow up a Gators fan, in fact, his allegiances were placed further south with the University of Miami. Sun Life Stadium may have only rarely Hurricanes games in high school with his familys season tickets, but something about Miami home games shapes the main idea hell bring time. One thing that really sticks out in my mind when comparing Miami to Gainesville is that theres just such an open tailgating environment (in Miami), Barnes said. In Gainesville its interesting because theres not so much of an open area for tailgating and even with that, a lot of campus is relatively closed off for tailgating. Barnes would like to see the school develop an area much like what Ole Miss has in The Grove, which is a consolidated spot on campus where thousands join together pregame. He sees the scene on campus during fall Saturdays as too spread out. Besides Miami and Florida, hes seen games at Tennessee, Georgia, Vanderbilt, LSU, Florida State and Georgia Tech. That puts him in stark contrast with Alicia Zurita, the other student and one of four women on the committee.

The Grizzlies appear set at the point guard position, with sixth-year veteran Mike Conley averaging 33.5 minutes and 17.2 points per game in the 2014 regular season. But Wilbekin could be a valuable No. 2 option on a team that has yet to win a Conference Finals game. If Wilbekin were to make it on the 76ers roster, he would be competing against Michael Carter Williams, the reigning NBA Rookie of the Year who averaged 16.7 points per game and a team-best 6.3 assists per contest, for the top point guard spot. But after going 19-63 in 2014, spots on the Philadelphia roster are bound to be open. Prather will also be heading to Las Vegas as he will be working with the Atlanta Hawks summer league. After having a career year averaging 13.8 points on a .603 shooting clip the Jackson, Tenn., shooting guard is ready to prove that he wasnt a one-year wonder. The Hawks return two shooting guards who averaged more than 10 points per contest in 2014 Kyle Korver (12.0) and Louis Wil liams (10.4) and also have 23-year-old John Jenkins and second-round selection Lamar Patterson in the mix. Will Yeguete was the only senior to have not inked a deal with an NBA summer league team. The Bordeaux, France, native is expected to return to Europe to play professionally. Donovan coaches U18 team to gold: Two days before the NBA Draft, UF coach Billy Donovan was at the helm of the USA U18 team. After bringing home gold medals with the 2012 USA U18 team and the 2013 U19 team, Donovan led the 2014 USA U18 team to a 5-0 record in Colorado Springs, Colo., to bring his coaching record to 19-0. I think that as a coach in this kind of event, youre only as good as your players, Donovan said in a release. Ive been very fortunate that in the past three years, Ive coached some great guys, great kids and have some great coaches working with me. States outscored its opponents by an average of 54.8 points per game, defeating each team by at least 34 points.USA U18 team breezed through the World Championshipsable to attend a UF game in person before coming to college because of the cost involved, but jumped on the opportunity to get affordable student season tickets and was able to bring her father to a game. walked in and just sat in the student section, Zurita said. I was just like Oh my gosh, this is awesome. When she spoke with alligatorSports, she was speechless when told that she was the only female student named to the council, something she was previously unaware of. Zurita also adds variety to what is, racially, a homogeneous cross section of Gator fans. She is of Puerto Rican descent and the only nonCaucasian member of the council. I feel like no matter if youre male or female or what color you are, people just come together no matter what for Gator football, Zurita said. I guess its awesome that I could be a voice if any of the female students have something, now they have someone they can come and talk to. She wants more fan interaction and engagement during the in-game experience and an increased social media presence for fans during the actual game. Her idea was for a tweet your seat feature so images of fans could appear on the GatorVision boards during games. The primary obstacle in the way of that for the UAA is the fact that the quality of cellphone service and in-stadium Wi-Fi is poor. Connectivity concerns are one of the most common complaints about the ingame experience in Ben Hill Grifcombat the issue by upgrading the stadiums antennae systems. So UF is trying to reach you after all, John Q. Gator fan. The UAA hopes the council will help it directly get to know the organic needs of the fanbase. The FACs primary goal is to give the athletic department ideas to get fans to come early and stay late. Time will tell what impact it will have. 18, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JULY 1, 2014Alligator File PhotoGators Ronald Powell and Dante Fowler, Jr. celebrate a 30-10 victory against Arkansas on Oct. 5, 2013, WORLD CUPKlinsmann concerned about ref, Altidore ready to return HOOPS, from page 17Council has nine men, four women F OOT, from page 17 ASSOCIATED PRESSSALVADOR, Brazil U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann is worried about the Algerian referee assigned to the Americans secondround World Cup match against Belgium on Tuesday. FIFA announced Sunday that Djamel Haimoudi will work the game. Haimoudi is a veteran of the last two African Cups of Nations and worked a pair of group-stage matches at this years World Cup. Klinsmann said Monday the Frenchspeaking referee will be able to communicate better with the Belgians, comes from a nation Belgium and is from a country eliminated by the U.S. at the 2010 tournament. Well, we hope its not a concern, Klinsmann said at a news conference. Is it a good feeling? No. Belgian coach Marc Wilmots dismissed Klinsmanns comments. If we start going into this, it is looking for excuses ahead of the match, Wilmots said. So to us, if it happens, too bad. We will shut up and return and try to get qualiI rarely talk to referees. That is one thing. The three referees in the group stage, I never talked to them. And a referee is not there to talk, but to referee. Haimoudi, 43, worked at the Africa Cup of Nations in 2008 and 2012 and refereed Italys third-place win over Uruguay at last years Confederations Cup. At this World over Australia and Costa Ricas 0-0 draw with England. We know that he did already two games so far, and he did them very well, so we wish that he continues his refereeing the perfect way hes done so far, Klinsmann said. to choose the right referee for the right games, and its always being kind of tricky for FIFA, but it is what it is, he added. We We respect the decision, and were going to be spot on in the game and hope that everything goes well. U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati, a member of FIFAs ruling executive committee, did not want to discuss Klinsmanns thoughts, saying merely: I think he said everything that needs to be said on that. Two years ago, the Court of Arbitration for Sport said Haimoudi claimed to have been assaulted by Al-Hilal team president Mohammed Al-Birair during an African held Al-Birairs appeal and overturned a four-year suspension imposed by the Confederation of African Football in January 2012, ruling it is not convinced to the standard of `comfortable satisfaction that the appellant was the assailant responsible for the incident. The last time an African referee worked a U.S. match at the World Cup, the Americans complained when Koman Coulibaly of Mali disallowed an apparent go-ahead goal in the 85th minute of a 2-2 draw against Slovenia four years ago. Coulibaly never explained his decision. Jozy Altidore is available to play for the United States in Tuesdays World Cup second-round game against Belgium, but it does not appear the forward is ready to return to the starting lineup. Altidore strained his left hamstring in the Americans opener against Ghana on June 16 and didnt play in their next two games. We dont know how much because we need to see how hes going, but hes available, U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said Monday. How many minutes? We will see that during the game. Altidore had been working out on his cans training camp at Sao Paulo Futebol Clube. Klinsmann said he has to determine how much work is in his legs. Aron Johannsson replaced Altidore at forward for the remainder of the game against Ghana. But Klinsmann switched from a 4-42 formation to a 4-5-1 against Portugal and second forward. Altidore has 23 goals in 71 international appearances and is the top forward on the American roster. Just having him with us tomorrow is huge, Klinsmann said. We respect the decision, and were going to be spot on in the game and hope that everything goes well.U.S. coach
