When Connor moved into the apartment at 414 NW 14th St. in August 2017, she said there was a leak coming from the air conditioning for about two weeks that or three days before the ceiling collapsed, Connor said. These are really outdated units and homes that they just anything, Connor said. They just put a Band-Aid over it. I feel like it was a long time coming for the ceiling to fall. One of Connors roommates tore her ACL three and a half weeks ago, and the ceiling fell onto both of her legs, Connor said. The roommate may be suing College Park. She denied to comment. Gainesville Fire Rescue Assistant Chief Stephen Hesson said rescuers treated the incident as an emergency medical service call. The report said a piece of the ceiling fell on a person, and they evaluated her for injuries. breathing in the debris was unsafe, but College Parks property manager didnt advise them to leave, Connor said. Hesson said there may have been concerns about inhaling the drywall in the air and the structural stability of the apartment. The property manager offered to relocate Connor and the other residents to a vacant one-bedroom unit with a couch and suggested she could provide them with air mattresses, according to Connor.

By Devoun CetouteAlligator Staff WriterLaw enforcement arrested a man and woman from Ruskin, Florida, who are accused of robbing a Wells Fargo bank, located at 6301 W. Newberry Road, on Saturday afternoon. Deionte Swinton, 22, and Elizabeth Vagnier, 24, were charged with unarmed robbery and child neglect. On Saturday around 12:57 p.m., Swinton allegedly entered the bank wearing a surgical mask, according to a Gainesville Police media release. He passed a note to the teller saying he was robbing the bank and then directed the victim to put the money from her drawer into a bag, according to the arrest report. Once the teller complied and gave him the money, Swinton left the bank and got into a car allegedly being driven by Vagnier. A GPS device, hidden in the money, was activated as Swinton allegedly left the bank. When activated, the device sent an alert to a tracking system, according to the media release. The Alachua County Combined Communicacers received the alert and location of the device. The device was traveling north on Interstate 75, outside of Gainesville city limits. On-duty ing for Swinton. Swintons car near Northwest 218th Avenue and County Road 235A because of information found in the investigation and from multiple law enforcement agencies, according to the release. Swinton was taken into custody and the money, clothes, a gun and other evidence of the robbery were in the car, according to the arrest report. His two children were also in the car at the time. Swinton also had a warrant for a similar bank robbery from Hillsborough County, according to the report. After reading them their Miranda Rights, Swinton confessed to robbing the bank and having a gun but not using it, according to the report. Vagnier said she was aware of Swintons plans and helped him She also said she drove Swinton away from the robbery in Hillsborough County with children in the car. Swinton and Vagnier remained in Alachua County Jail on Saturday and Sunday in lieu of a $400,000 bail. @devoun_cetoute dcetoute@alligator.orgGPD: Pair charged in bank robberySwinton Vagnier Ive been here since 9:30 (a.m.), and I havent seen anybody come yet, she said. Im not really sure when theyre going to work on it. We deal with stuff like this and various issues at this apartment all the time. Maintenance workers came ers from the apartment but said they were unable to because ColConnor said another maintenance worker came to check the air conditioning unit around 10:30 a.m. and said he would return but never did. Kali Blount, the co-chair of Alachua County Housing Authority, said he has been advocating for affordable, safe housing in Gainesville at local government meetings. He said some landlords ment prices increase and quality diminishes. If I were them, I would certainly call code enforcement, Blount said. Some of these places are doing particle board on top of particle board, and you can pretty much just end up with junk. Blount said that although there are minimal health and safety requirements for housing, it tends them with some landlords. There is a whole set of standards, but there is no enforcement unless the tenant engages adversarial enforcement, Blount said. Im afraid theyre just SOL until they bring in code or the landlord feels like responding.

TUESDAY, JUNE 12, 2018 ALLIGATOR 5 By Sloan SavageAlligator Staff WriterOnye Ozuzu wasnt looking to leave her career in Chicago, but she said Florida and UF itself inspired her move to the College of the Arts. Ozuzu, the current dean of the School of Fine and Performing Arts at Columbia College Chicago, will be transitioning into her position as the dean of the College of the Arts at UF starting Aug. 1. She was invited to apply for the position. Brandon McKinley, public relations and partnerships specialist for the College of the Arts, says her track record of success made her stand out against other candidates for the position. ly has the credentials, and shes also a really accomplished artist as well, McKinley said. Shes done a lot of different research that really explores interdisciplinarity and also intersectionality between how dance can relate to your body and people around you. Ozuzu, a Florida native, graduated from Florida State University. She studied English literature during her undergraduate studies and earned a Masters of Fine Arts in dance and choreography. Ozuzu said she was aiming to attend law school when her plans were interrupted by a love for dance. She discovered this passion when she took classes at a community organization. Ozuzu started playing tennis at a young age, partially due to her dads intense analysis of movement in sports. If a ball didnt land on the court, he would make her verbalize why, Ozuzu said. There was something about that early training that when I over, Ozuzu said. I was able to synthesize the physical information into action. She turned her passion for dance into a career as a choreographer, researcher and administrator. She has served in her current position at Columbia College Chicago since 2015. She loves to travel, and her career has taken her around the world. I really love culture and to experience, by being there, how people live and the differences and similarities in the way people express their cultures, Ozuzu said. Dance is kind of like a peephole into the things that people do. Ozuzu said she felt inspired to take the position after reading about UF and the way the college integrates technology into its work. Im really excited to be a part of a community of artists that have an opportunity to think about art and our intersection with educating the students for a world where there is going to be lots and lots of dynamic change, and where technology is currently and will continue to fundamentally shift what reality is, Ozuzu said. @sloanasavage ssavage@alligator.orgNew UF College of the Arts dean to start in August By Mark StineAlligator Contributing WriterOne by one, young pianists stepped to a black, 9-foot-long Steinway and Sons Model-D and performed their renditions of compositions by classical composers like Mozart and Beethoven.

Pianists Quin Nardone, 17; Abigail Lee, 17, and Lien Nguyen, 23, gave encore performances from their previous nights recital in the UF Health Shands Hospitals South Buildings waiting area Monday at noon.

This Jasmin Arakawa. I just wanted to have something festive, not so much into competitive things, Arakawa said. They get to play once without any kind of pressure and once at the end so they have something to look forward to. The students said they spend about four hours each day of the weeklong festival with scheduled practice on top of the two to three months many of them said they already took to learn their pieces. We spend all day in the practice room, Lee said. Despite spending most of their days at the festival either in lessons or practicing, Nguyen and some of her fellow student pianists said they prefer the small classes and action-packed days to the larger camps theyve attended in the past. The level of playing in this festival is a lot higher, Nguyen said. We learn a lot of things in a short amount of time.Young pianists headline the UF International Piano Festival By Devoun CetouteAlligator Staff Writer Sunday accused of leaving three children unsupervised and alone for multiple days.

The song sends a message of preparedness and determination. Although the song leads into part of the demise of Hamiltons respected character, legacy and work ethic after an affair, Lin-Manuel Mirandas lyrics put responsibility in Hamiltons hands. Though there may be quiet in the middle of a semester or for months of a hurricane season, being ready to tackle a torrential downpour of assignments or a deluge of wind, rain or tornadoes is key. For a Summer semester, it can be easy to get caught up in sunny adventures. Theres Lake Wauburg or a short drive down to the springs or theme parks. Other students get into a cycle of nights in Midtown and put off assignments. Between schoolwork and fun, it can be easy to forget the threat of hurricanes, even in Rainesville. In both scenarios school and weather preparedness and responsibility are key. College itself is like a storm of deadlines. Keeping a schedule, maintaining healthy habits and watching the calendar and news for impending assignments and extracurricular duties is essential. Be sure to have a Blue Book on hand, and be careful to watch your stock of paper, pens and No. 2 pencils. The same goes for hurricanes. Floridians can be quick to belittle hurricanes and jump at the chance to get a day off from school or have a hurricane party. However, these situations can be dire and mean more than just missing a scheduled football game. During Hurricane Irma, downed trees, gas shortages and destroyed homes. On campus, historic trees were lost and UF agricultural researchers lost months or years of research across the state. There were also the deaths of many in ill-prepared nursing facilities. Beyond Florida, Hurricanes Harvey and Maria caused destruction that is still being dealt with today amid a new active season. Already, the second named storm of son, Hurricane Bud, has formed in the Gulf of Mexico.

And you can appreciate blue skies, loved ones, air conditioning, electricity and living in a developed state where resources are available. Do your assignments and prep your hurricane kits. Dont wait for it to be too late. Sophie Feinberg is a UF journalism junior. Her column comes out Tuesday Hurricanes teach us preparedness and appreciationColumn As one of the 1,149 students currently enrolled in UFs Innovation Academy (IA), I spend a lot of time thinking about innovation and entrepreneurship. Almost every 21st-century company claims to be innovative or seeks innovative employees. This makes UFs minor in innovation through IA attractive to students looking to have a competitive edge in the job market. Since we are now living in a knowledge and internet economy rather than a manufacturing one, the only way to create distinguished products that can compete for market share is to innovate. Most people know this, but they arent sure how to go about it. Innovation is literally just coming up with a new idea that seems easy enough to achieve. But in practice, we struggle to grab one out of thin air. We have great ideas all the time while driving or showering, but when we try to force it, the results are bleak. If you gather hundreds of people and ask them to come up with the next big business idea, I guarantee at least 10 percent of them will suggest grocery delivery service. This frustrating response is an innovative dead end that is reached more often than youd think. On Shark Tank, a lot of the ideas are and Airbnb have become famous for originality and problem solving. These companies arent successful just because they digitized something that was previously not on the internet. They are successful because they found a solution to a customer problem. Innovation is about creating your own disruptive business model, not necessarily copying someone elses. I agree that the best innovations come from compromise and combining different ideas, but the goal must stay clear throughout the whole process. So often, peoples innovative ideas are simply creating an app for something. They seek funding to design these apps and claim they will be groundbreaking. Most of these apps arent solving a problem that consumers already have. They are creating a problem they think customers have. This is the opposite of innovation. Its regressive. A real entrepreneur would begin trying to help customers solve the problem and work on the app later. UF Principles of Entrepreneurship professor Christopher Pryor uses an example of this when teaching his class. One of his students had the idea to create an app that linked people together to share meals. The student insisted that he couldnt get the business started because it required an app and funding. Pryor insists that customers with whatever theyre lacking by begging, borrowing or stealing if necessary. Innovation isnt just arbitrary brainstorming. What differentiates a regular idea from an innovation is the purpose behind it. It requires the entrepreneur to understand the customer and to empathize with them. Generating ideas can be more methodical than you think. There are spetive brainstorming sessions. If you run with an idea far past the point than what makes sense, People are so focused on creating something different that their products have all become the same. In my experience, my most innovative ideas have come from trying to think of the most unpredictable route. Now more than Luckily, innovation is something you can learn.

Hurricane Irma and Richard Spencers UF visit brought to light the problems of having no paid time off for the OPS workers. A board meeting was held Thursday afternoon in Emerson Alumni Hall to discuss grantOPS, or other personnel services employees, are people like medical residents and secretaries whose jobs are designated to last less than a year. However, over 25 percent of OPS years, according to a packet of statistics and testimonies the ACLC created. Despite this, OPS employees are considered temporary, part-time employees. They do not time off. On Wednesday, UF announced the base wage would be raised from $12 an hour to $13 an hour, but the change did not apply to OPS employees. Both UF Faculty Senate and UF Student Senate have passed resolutions calling for UF to move long-term hourly OPS employees into cision rests with the UF Board of Trustees. Five people were given time to speak to the board on issues at the university. Among them was Jason Fults, co-chair of the ACLC. Fults recounted his time as a UF employee and the strain it had placed on his health and I received no paid time off, meaning that I sometimes came to work sick, Fults said. I sity breaks because I couldnt afford the unpaid time off. Over 20 percent of the visits to the on-campus food pantry are from UF employees, Fults said. Alachua County Commissioner Ken Cornell ceives when employees are given a living wage when Alachua County raised its wages three years ago. We found that our employees were more productive, we found that our employee turnover was much less (and) we found that our hiring cost was much less, Cornell said. By raising wages, Alachua County was able to stimulate the local economy and create more jobs, Cornell said. What you do today is good for the employee, is good for UF and its good for our community, he said. Sheila Payne, ACLC member and resident, said employees are also required to pay into the alternate Federal Insurance Contributions Act system an act that taxes employees payrolls to fund Social Security and Medicare without any contribution to their Social Security. The employees have to pay in (to FICA), but the employer doesnt, she said. Ive never heard of such a thing at any other institution. Payne said Alachua County has the greatest income inequality in Florida. UF and UF Health are the primary employers for the county and the eight neighboring for either UF or UF Health. For more information about the Alachua County Labor Coalition, visit its website at or its Facebook page at By Dana CassidyAlligator Staff WriterUF Health is opening three specialty medical practices within The Oaks Mall. The three practices will be otolaryngology, audiology and ophthalmology. A surgery center is also opening to support the facilities. The Oaks Mall facilities are set to open in 14 to 15 months and will take patients with all kinds of insurance and those without. One of the anchors will be otolaryngology, which offer ENT services like ear, nose and throat care, allergy treatment and sinus surgeries, said Marvin Dewar, senior associate dean at the UF College of Medicine. The other anchor will be ophthalmology, which covers general eye problems as well as specializations for parts of the eye like the retina and cornea, glaucoma and neuro-ophthalmology, a subspeciality that combines neurology and ophthalmology. UF Health had services that were space restrained and could no longer grow in their current location, Dewar said. This inspired the search for new facilities, which eventually led to the selection of the former Sears store at The Oaks Mall. Its both a central location for the local community and easily accessible, Dewar said. There were a lot of things that made it attractive. Dr. Sonal Tuli, the UF chair of the Department of Ophthalmology, also expressed enthusiasm for the benTuli, who is also the ophthalmology clinic medical director, said the facilities will have a large space for expansion and will be easily accessible being right off of Interstate 75. A surgery center will also be next to the facilities, allowing for minimal patient travel. Dr. Patrick Antonelli, chair of otolaryngology at the UF College of Medicine, said the shopping experience that comes with being in a retail center is a very favorable aspect of the new location. A lot of our patients (that) come in from outside the area here really their medical care when they come in but to get some shopping done, Antonelli said. Like Tuli, he is also looking forward to the amount of space the new location has to offer. The additional space allows for patients to be seen faster, which will cut wait times. Im very happy that my patients wont have to run down to the main campus every time they need to get a scan, or to see an audiologist or an opthamologist, Antonelli said. @danacassidy_ dcassidy@alligator.orgCourtesy of UF HealthA conceptual rendering predicts how the new facilities will look.

TUESDAY, JUNE 12, 2018 ALLIGATOR 15 T he better team won the 2018 NBA Finals, just like we all expected. The Golden State War riors swept the Cleveland Cavaliers to repeat as NBA champions. Ive organized some of my post-Finals thoughts below, starting with a ridiculous nar rative Im sure were going to hear about all summer. Kevin Durant is not bet ter at basketball than LeB ron James. To his credit, Durant has been lessening the gap between himself and LeBron since sign ing with Golden State in 2016. ments to his all-around game, primarily on the defensive end. It also helps that he plays with three other All-Stars. But regardless, hes not close to the leader James is. The two best players in the world might be 1A/1B in terms of skill level, but theres a reason KD lost 17 of 21 head-to-head matchups with LeBron before he joined forces with the 73-win Finals runner-up. LeBron had no help in the Finals. The Cavaliers are a lot tery team without him. This postseason, he led Cleveland in scoring, assists, blocks and steals. Heres a snapshot of the struggles his supporting cast had against the Warriors: Guard Kyle Korver, who has made the fourth-most threes all time during his 15-year pro career, went 1 for 11 from long range for the series and went scoreless games. Guard JR Smiths gaffe at the end of Game 1 has been well docu mented, and center Tristan Thompson struggled with 6.8 points and just 5.3 rebounds per game. If the Cavs won Game 1, it would have caused a serieschanging domino effect. Allow me to explain: If Cleveland stole Game 1 in Oakland, it would likely lose Game 2 and split Games 3 and 4 at home. We would have watched Game 5 of a 2-2 series Monday night. But I guess that only applies if LeBron doesnt hurt his hand after Game 1. He injured himself by punching a whiteboard in the locker room after the disap pointing loss. His injury nega tively affected his play and Clevelands chances at an up set. LeBron will be back. This has to be the most frustrating end to a season hes ever had. He worked so hard to drag the Cavs back to the Finals for the fourth-straight year, only to watch his team mates collapse as he dealt with his 15th season, but nobody knows where the King will continue his reign from in his 16th.

Graduate transfer Adam Shuler announced Monday on his Twit ter that hes transferring to Flor ida from West Virginia. Because he is a graduate transfer, Shuler will be immediately eligible for all team activities for the next two seasons. The three-star prospect from Longwood, Florida, finished his 2017 redshirt sophomore season with 37 tackles, eight tackles for loss and three sacks in 12 games, including a big game in West Vir ginias opener against Virginia Tech where he tallied seven total tackles. Shuler will join a strong defen sive line that already has weap ons, including senior CeCe Jeffer son, sophomore Elijah Conliffe, junior Antonneous Clayton and redshirt freshman Zachary Carter. The Gators also have a new defensive line coach, Sal Sunseri, who was hired in January after three seasons as the linebackers coach for the Oakland Raiders. The 6-foot-4, 268-pound line man is expected to be an imme diate upgrade and help generate sacks for the Gators, as the team struggled in that area in 2017 with only 23. Even though he missed all of spring practice, Shuler will have plenty of time to learn the new system before the team opens the 2018 season on Sept. 1 against Charleston Southern. @dyrudolph Florida lands graduate transfer Adam Shuler from West Virginia Defensive lineman Adam Shuler is transferring from West Virginia to UF.
