She wanted to show students theres a whole other world to discover outside of Alachua County. When you stand on stage and you look out at Carnegie Hall and hear the acoustics, it really can be life changing, Skaggs said. Theres so many opportunities and hard work and chaos that can get (the students) to amazing places. Skaggs plans to continue participating in events like the Masterwork Series and even organize a oneor two-week European Tour. Students such as Brooks and Nance said they will stay in chorus throughout high school and after. They both emphasized their love for choir and were thrilled to have performed at Carnegie Hall. This program that Ms. Skaggs has brought up is an amazing program, and we wouldnt of been able to get here without her.

4 ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 2018 By Jessica CurbeloAlligator Staff WriterA man was arrested by Gainesville Police on Tuesday and charged with raping a woman in May. On May 16, Patrick Wilber called the victim while she was at a local department store, waiting for her car to be serviced at a dealership, according to the report. Wilber, 53, asked where she was and showed up at the department store shortly after. According to the GPD report, Wilber and the victim were friends and have known each other since October 2017. After shopping, the victim got into Wilbers car to get a ride back to the dealership. Instead, Wilber allegedly talked her into getting lunch. On the way to the restaurant, he told her he needed to stop somewhere on Northwest 34th Way to do some quick contract work for the owner of the residence, according to the report. Wilber gave the victim a tour of the home. While inside one of the bedrooms, he allegedly grabbed the victims hand from behind and put it on his penis over his clothing. He then attempted to kiss her while she repeatedly said, No, I dont want to do that, according to the report. Wilber told the victim to sit on a bed, and she did so out of fear, according to the report. Wilber reportedly pulled her pants and underwear off and performed oral sex on her without her consent. The victim repeatedly told him to stop and said, Dont even do that. The victim said she froze. According to the report, she said I dont want this, Stop it, Please stop and Dont do this, but he would not stop. Wilber then allegedly began raping the victim. During the assault, he reportedly attempted to bite her face and slapped her leg three times, leaving a bruise. Video surveillance from the department store showed the victim and Wilber together about an hour before the alleged sexual battery happened. ber for sexual battery Tuesday. Wilber stated he would not say anything without his attorney present. According to Alachua County Jail, Wilber was released on his own recognizance Wednesday. @jesscurbelo jcurbelo@alligator.orgBy Dennis JohnsonAlligator Contributing WriterFareed Johnson was selling hair extensions and beauty products from a van two years ago. The van eventually broke down and, with it, his business model. Despite the loss, he kept working toward the dream of owning his own business. Today, he has a store at 530 N. Main St. in Gainesville. It started out as a side hustle, and it grew into a business, Johnson said. Fortunately back in January, business began to skyrocket, and I was able to go brick-and-mortar in March. The 25-year-old owner of Blush Hair Extensions was one of roughly a dozen local entrepreneurs attending a networking event hosted by the Gainesville Entrepreneurship and Adversity Program at the Gainesville Technology Entrepreneurship Center on Monday night. The program was launched by the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center at the Warrington College of Business Administration and the City of Gainesville in 2016. It helps disadvantaged people start businesses and grow existing ones. Weve done a very deliberate job of targeting people who might otherwise face adversity and not have the connections or knowledge that these sorts of resources and people exist, said Gainesville Mayor Lauren Poe. The program offers opportunities such as a six-week entrepreneurship boot camp, mentoring and consulting. The boot camp costs $600, but many applicants receive scholarships to help pay for it, said the centers director Jamie Kraft. Poe said the program was designed to reach people that wouldnt normally attend the Warrington School of Business. They trim the fat off of a business degree and give you the meat of what you really need to know to run your business, Johnson said. After leaving the U.S. Air Force in 2013, he started working odd jobs around Gainesville. A friend suggested that he look into the hair extension business, and he started researching the industry. Johnson started out by selling hair extensions by word-of-mouth and delivering them to customers. Then, using the money he earned from his initial sales and his work as a truck driver, a job he still holds, he bought a van, which allowed him to expand into selling beauty products too. When the van broke down, it was a major setback to Johnsons dream. The program helped to change things for him. Johnson said the program taught him the (business) vocab, the nuts and bolts of the business plan, dos and donts of being in business and the process of starting a business. open every day of the week. The store has made $13,000 in sales since it opened on March 25. Maybe one day well go to franchise and locate ourselves in different cities and regions of the country, Johnson said.GPD: Man charged with rape was friend of victim Local business owner helped by UF entrepreneur program Wilber

Editorial Column Look, readers. Youre gonna have to level with us. Were a bunch of starving college journalists. If it seems as if all we talk about is food and the weather, its because weve been dealt terrible situations with both, and were using The Alligator as an outlet for our frustrations with each. Thats not to say Gainesville is riddled with terrible restaurants or food culture. Its to say were dead broke and yearning for a decent meal. We would pay the chefs, waiters and bartenders what we owe, but again, the life of a starving journalist isnt one of glitz or glam or gobs of spending money. But if theyre cool with it, we have plenty of an uncommon currency with which to pay our service industry workers. We dont have U.S. dollars, yen or even those funny Canadian bills. No, we only offer something much less valuable and inA tale of a few streetlights and persistence I cant say I knew a lot of things when I started only does our Senate lack any sort of transitioning between past positions, but I also what my predecessors were up to. took a bit for the gears to get turning in terms of representation. The majority party at the time claimed that the senators for District A, the ZIP would be able to take care of the residents, but the residents felt strongly the opposite. Residents showed up to public debate, not too unlike the multiple protests we saw this past year. The Senate Judiciary Committee still didnt include a Then, the Student Body president at the time vetoed their reapportionment to force the creation of the seat. hindsight, seems like a wild goose chase in terms of potential to get things done. Thats why, for the most part, you dont often see your senators doing much in relation to who they are supposed to represent. SG simply doesnt have much power over the different colleges, residence halls or local ZIP codes. People come into the role thinking they have lots of power, but thats not really the case. Its actually advocacy disguised as a position of power, which is why senators often dont have lasting impacts in their areas. Theres been no shortage of failures on my part. Despite working with my roommate to gather a petition with over half of my halls residents for support, were still lacking a fully-furnished kitchen at the moment (its still on the table there is still hope). I once thought itd be really neat for us to get those water water dispenser in its kitchen area which technically can do the same thing. I also tried (and failed) to get a bike rental (Im broke). asking about the bike station, I also mentioned a ity. I attached photos of the areas of concern and had been set aside as of July.

You throw on gym clothes. Youre a mess. Keurig from your dorm days is any good. Then you make it to Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks and you have that glorious iced coffee in hand. Then disaster strikes. than the polar ice caps. The Florida sun is the devil, ruining your precious coffee. Some coffee shops have begun to make their ice cubes out of coffee so that the melt damage is minimal, but this hasnt caught on much here in Gainesville. Therefore, we award a dart to coffee chains in Gainesville for not supporting our caffeine addiction with more gusto. Sorry to our vegan brethren, but this one is not for you. This one is for the connoisseurs of cheese and for our esteemed colleagues at Boca Fiesta. We award a glowing laurel to the Boca Fiesta queso. This cheesy, melty dip and classic tortilla chip is a perfect polygamous marriage with the Boca house margarita. Boca, you never cease to amaze us. Well also dole out a laurel to the wonderful pastry section of Whole Foods Market, without which we might have never experienced the magic that is almond lace cookies. The dessert that has moved to Butler Plaza wants to be original. To stand out in the ever-growing eyesore that reminds you youre in Florida. You missed the mark on that one with the bowl-concept restaurant, but well give you a pass for bringing another glutenfree menu to our gluten-free masses. We regretfully realize that in your desperation to make yourselves original, you named your bowls bols. Small bol. an underpaid marketing intern. Its a tragedy, but whats done is done.

10 ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 2018 By Emma WitmerAvenue EditorAverage Friend is turning local music into an outlet for millennial rage with their upcoming album, The Never Has-Been. The Never Has-Been will be released in September, but the title single will be released Tuesday. This release signals the birth of the second incarnation of Average Friend. Where the original Average Friend was traditionally punk, this new iteration meets band founder Scott Kauffmanns punk-esque lyrics with a rock n roll sound. I wasnt really being true to myself as a songwriter, so it felt kind of forced, Kauffmann said. The past year gave me the chance to reevaluate what I want to do or say musically. After the original Average Friend split up last year, Kauffmann took a discouraged break from music. Kauffmann is a millennial and a musician, a combination he said has made him angry in more ways than one in recent years. Between the economic and political prospects of the day, Kauffmann said his anger pushed him into a creative state. On his own, Kauffmann wrote and recorded a full album. The Never Has-Been was the result. Theres a disappointment behind it, you know the name of the album is The Never Has-Been. Its pretty autobiographical, Kauffman said. Its about addiction, but not toward drugs or alcohol, well that too, but its more an addiction to a lifestyle and to naivete. Its easy to be consumed and its also angry. With the album fully recorded, Kauffmann brought in his friend Chris Hillman to master the tracks and start a band for live performances. Right now, Hillman said. Average Friend is Scott. Hillman reiterated Kauffmanns sentiment on the album. In line with many artists today, Kauffmann expresses the millennial artistic feeling of failed expectations. As a generation, millennials thought they understood where things were going both personally and politically, and it just didnt happen. Its that late 20s crisis feeling, Hillman said, with the current political and social situation of the country just slammed on top of it and how it makes us feel. Theres so much art about that right now. In the title single, The Never Has-Been, theres no question that the anger is there, but thats not all. With lines like You disgust me, but I need the money, and F--you, who cares, youre a nobody putting on airs, Kauffmans poignant lyrics are deeply personal and resonate with the feelings of inauthenticity in modern society. Theres a lot of me in it, a lot of my insecurities, Kauffmann said. I think thats one of the reasons I wrote that song about Im disappointed in you, but I see myself in you. Its really a disappointment in myself. Apparently, disappointment is catchy. From the head-nodding beat of the drums to the groovy melody, Kauffman is able to communicate his emotions in an extremely digestible way.By Emma McAvoyAvenue WriterFor graphic novelist Andre Frattino, Floridas history, arts and culture is everything. Frattino recently developed a graphic novel adaptation of A Land Remembered, celebrating the history of Florida that many have forgotten, reminding us of where we came from and where we are going. Frattino has put a twist on a historical treasure that will appeal to the next generation through a marriage of words and pictures. Frattino said A Land Remembered: A Graphic Novel will stimulate not only nostalgia for Floridas rich landscape, but also an appreciation for what we have left. Readers will be able to see the characters raw emotions and thought processes, the landscape of the past and how the relationship between human and land has evolved over time. The book will spread a powerful message of family, nostalgia and preservation that will speak to a new generation so that our history is not forgotten, but treasured, Frattino said. A Florida native himself, Frattino was born and raised in Gainesville until he moved to Savannah, Georgia, at age 21 to study comic illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design. He later attended UF, where he earned his Master of Arts in Art Education. While at UF, Frattino worked as a comic illustrator for The Alligator. There, he created his own comic strip called Son of a Gator a comic about Albert the Alligators son and his merry misadventures through college. Frattinos passion for the graphic arts has been a part of him for as long as he can retive story entitled Honey Pot Bear and the Prize at the End of the Rainbow. According to Frattino, his mother and father helped him create the story and made multiple copies to give out as Christmas presents. From then on, Frattino knew this was what he had to do. I was never without a pencil in my hand, Frattino said. Id get in trouble in school for drawing in the margins of notes and homework assignments. Frattino demonstrates a deep passion for communication through the visual arts. He has been writing and illustrating graphic novels his entire life and continues to stay hungry for new stories and new ways of communicating his ideas to the world. If you really persist, youre guaranteed to succeed in some form, Frattino said. Frattinos passion inspired him to tell the story of A Land Remembered visually; the book tells a story of family, heritage, preservation and nostalgia. Frattinos emphasis on the importance of family stems from the love and support of his parents. Family is a part of who I was; and who I am, he said. The novels captures three generations of the MacIvey family and how they struggle to survive in rapidly changing environments, Frattino said. From the Civil War Era to the 1960s, they move further and further away from their connection to nature and untamed land. The author of the original novel, Patrick Smith, intended for readers to pass the novel down from family member to family member to showcase the importance of the MacIveys unity. Frattino said Florida has developed in different ways some good and some bad. He believes that A Land Remembered tells a history of Florida that many of us have forgotten or have not even experienced. My mission in mind was to help Florida remember where it came from, what it used to be and how easy it is to forget, Frattino said. He tells stories that are fantastical yet based on reality: stories that inspire us to remember where we come from. Frattino tells the stories of the people we pass on the street whom we have no thought about. He wants to show us that everyone has a story a story that is unique, complicated and exciting. An advocate for history, Frattino also gives audiences the chance to peer into the lives of characters in history whose stories havent been told much. His upcoming novel, Simon Says, centers around a man named Simon Wiesenthal, a Jewish artist who survived the Holocaust by painting Swastikas on train cars for the Nazis. After the tragedy of the Holocaust, he spends the rest of his life hunting down Nazis, earning him the nickname Jewish James Bond.Average Friend is gearing up to release new musicA Land Remembered, a new graphic novel by a UF grad Emma WitmerScott Kauffmann (left) and Chris Hillman (right) hug it out while talking about the future of their growing local band.

They're also all attributes that Florida guard Jalen Hudson possesses. Hudson is big and powerful for strength to drive to the basket, as well as his ability to shoot shooting guard led his team in games he played. But athleticism isnt shown just through a stat sheet. Hudson used his athleticism to put himself in position to make plays that few other players could. A prime example is when Hudson skied for a put-back dunk against St. Bonaventure in the His incredible speed with the ball, combined with his remarkable agility to shake defenders on the wing made him the best athlete on the court at times and was a big reason why Hudson became times in a basketball season.

Being passionate and supporting your side is no issue, but when it leads to acts of hate, its time to intervene. FIFA has issued warnings to both the Mexican and Serbian soccer federations for discriminatory demonstrations at matches. Its also using anti-discriminatory experts to monitor each of the games. However, responding to these inappropriate actions cant be monitored solely by issuing warnings and peting countries soccer federations need to take matters regarding their fans into their own hands. The English Football Association is doing exactly that. video of English fans making anti-seits match with Tunisia Monday.

Its a joke that has continued to rise in popularity thanks to UF pitcher Jackson Kowars mastery of the Texas offense with 13 strikeouts Monday night. He earned a win while giving with his 13 strikeouts a UF College World Series record. After eliminating the Longhorns with a 6-1 victory, the Gators advanced to the next round to play tonight at 8 against Texas Tech after the Red Raiders lost to Arkansas 7-4 Wednesday. Catcher Jonah Girand noted that Kowars changeup was a reason behind his success. That things incredible, Girand said in a release. He can get that thing to sink and drop and go the other way. Its just devastating to hitters. Unfortunately for UF, he wont be available for tonights matchup. Florida is familiar with TTU as it was defeated by the Red Raiders in day. The Texas Tech offense is as powerful as it gets in the remainin the normal starting lineup hit at least .298 heading into the game with Florida today. The team as a whole is hitting .311 and possesses a ridiculous slugging percentage of .510. For comparison, UF has a batting average of .276 and a slugging percentage of .474 (still pretty high, but a vast gap remains between the Gators and the Red Raiders). Florida will need to rely on its pitching staff and defense to pick up some of the slack if it is to mitigate the Texas Tech attack. In the matchup four days ago, pitcher Brady Singer was dealing before the defense fell apart behind him. After the defense had its share of miscues, Singers production level dropped too, as he allowed three unearned runs while UF took the loss. Either Tommy Mace or Jack Leftwich is expected to get the start for Florida against TTU. The two freshmen performed well in their last contest, a win in the Gainesville Super Regional against Auburn. Gator fans should also expect closer Michael Byrne to come in toward the end of the game. The AllAmerican stopper has seen action in each of Floridas last eight contests. It shouldnt be a shock if reliever Jordan Butler is brought out at some point as well. He has played One player to keep an eye on? Tyler Dyson. hasnt seen the mound since May 8 against the USF Bulls. After strugthe weekend rotation, last years CWS hero was replaced by Leftwich and moved to the bullpen before being cut out entirely. Coach Kevin OSullivan said before the Super Regional that Dyson was available and looked sharp in practice, throwing 96 mph. If he does see action, Florida needs a revitalized Dyson to have success. @THEChrisOB cobrien@alligator.org Florida gets ready to do battle with Texas Tech, once againMarcelo Rondon / Alligator StaffFreshman pitcher Tommy Mace is expected to see the mound at some point in the Gators College World Series rematch against the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

Holloway ran the fastest 60-meter hurdles time (7.42) in the NCAA during the indoor season, which set a new UF school record. He did that at age 20, making him the second man to ever run 7.42 or faster before turning 21. man in the history of the NCAA Indoor Champion(champion) and the long jump (runner-up). history to run a sub-7.50-second and surpass 8.00 meters jumping in the same season. And he did that in a 24-hour span at NCAA Indoors. During the outdoor season, Holloway ran the second-fastest (13.15) and tied the third-fastest (13.16) 110-meter hurdles time in collegiate history. He won SEC Outdoor titles in the 110-meter hurdles and long jump and defended his 110 hurdles national title at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. The Chesapeake, Virginia, native is the only man in the last four seasons with multiple indoor and outdoor USTFCCCA National Athlete of the Week Honors in the same year. His dominance helped the Gators to an NCAA Indoor title, SEC Outdoor title, and NCAA Outdoor runner up. Holloway seems to get better with every race and could become one of the most accomplished athletes to come through Florida. @alanisthames athames@alligator.org Andrew: Allow me to introduce you to the 201718 UF Athlete of the Year: Rhamat Alhassan. Shes 6-foot-4, from Glenarden, Maryland, and was a four-year cornerstone of the UF volleyball team. She was sively and an absolute monster on the defensive end. She was a 2017 First-Team All-American and the 2017 SEC Player of the Year. She also won the 2017 Honda Sport Award the rough equivalent of college footballs Heisman Trophy for volleyball. Alhassan anchored one of the best defenses in school history as a senior, leading the country with 1.70 blocks per set. If youre more familiar with basketball stats than volleyball stats, this accomplishment is comparable to the Utah Jazzs Rudy Gobert leading the NBA in blocks per game last season. Thanks in large part to Alhassan, the Gators dominated opposing offenses all year, ranking in the NCAAs top 10 in team blocks per set and opponents hitting percentage (imagine how opponents struggle to move the ball against, say, the Alabama football team if you need context for this terminology). Alhassan was an absolute force at the net and was instrumental in the Gators 30-2, national runner-up season that included the program's 23rd SEC title. A member of the 2017 SEC Fall Academic Honor Roll, she also handled business off the court. The choice is clear. @AndrewJHuang ahuang@alligator.org Who do you think is UF's Athlete of the Year? You can vote on Twitter by following @alligatorSports or go to twitter.com/ alligatorSports. to subdue the crowd. In April, Russian hooligans remembered this brawl and threatened any English fans planning to travel to the World Cup with words such as prepare to die. As for fans that actually attended World Cup matches, some Mexican and Serbian fans committed deplorable actions themselves. Mexican fans chanted puto at Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. I understand this is a commonplace chant in some Spanish-speaking countries. But on a world stage, dont make a chant that can be taken as a homophobic slur, especially since Mexican fans have been reprimanded for the same previously. Javier Chicharito Hernandez, Mexicos star striker, posted a message on Instagram Wednesday pleading fans to quit shouting puto. Hopefully Hernandezs initiative will have more of an impact than a simple warning from FIFA. A distateful political banner was displayed during Serbias match with Costa Rica Sunday. According to an Associated Press report, it was a World War II-era banner representing a far-right political view. Serbian fans exhibited similar materials during World Cup qualifying matches in 2017. Serbia was tions. werent enough to discourage the politically-charged banners. It will be interesting to see if the Serbian federation decides to take any further action, especially if these banners pop up again. Mark Stine is a sports writer.
