WEST-WARD BOUND


Eager rush


at opening
By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Writer

When the dock struck 1
Wednesday afternoon, UF stu-
dents and faculty were ready.
They were lined up in front
of Library West's revolving
doors, eager to push through
and enter the building for the
first time since it closed nearly
three years ago.
"It's like the opening of
a Macy's, only there are no
shoes," yelled a woman as the
line rushed through the door.
Escalators brought guests up
to the building's second floor
while library staff members
yelled welcomes from above.
Some guests walked directly
to the library circulation desk
for maps of the vast new build-
ing. Others decided to take a
guided tour of the library or
risked exploring its depths on
their own.
A few patrons picked books
and DVDs from the stacks and
made themselves comfortable

niture.
Thaniel Smith, a pre-medical
student who had never been in-
side the library before it under-
went renovations, particularly
liked plopping down on one of
the new beanbag chairs.


"I'm going to be here at least
every day, maybe except dur-
ing the weekends," Smith said
with a laugh.
Smith brought her camera
and spent much of the time
-snapping shots of her friends
enjoying the opening.

year English student, said she
thought the modernized library
could 'give the university a
better image. Chuckling, she

Students


respond


to Castro

By JAMES RIGNEY
Alligator Contributing Writer

There is no love lost between
Miami Cubans and Fidel Castro.
1 would love to see Castro dead,
and Raul too," said Anthony Borge,
president of the Cuban American
Student Association at Florida
International University.
Cubans and Cuban exiles in
Florida faced that possibility when
the 79-year-old Castro ceded power
to his brother Raul after being hospi-
talized Monday.
But some experts say a possible
change in leadership may not mean
an immediate end to the Communist
nation's current regime.
Terry McCoy,
-a UF Latin
American studies
professor, said
the question is
whether Castro's
brother can hold
.. onto power.
Castro Some say the
75-year-old Raul
Castro is less charismatic than his
older brother and lacks Fidel's lead-
ership qualities.
McCoy said Fidel's death opens
up the possibility of change, but he
thinks the government can at least
survive in the short term.
The succession plan first in-
volves Raul Castro and then a circle
of much younger successors, who
would run the country through
some type of collective leadership,
McCoy said.
He said there is little chance
Raul or his successors would usher
in a new era of leadership, and he
doesn't expect any type of competi-
tive elections in the near future but
said there may perhaps be a shift
toward a market-style communism
like in China and Vietnam.
"They're-all Marxist-Leninists,"
he said. "There is not a democrat
among them."

Boy OK after dolphin nips
arm at Orlando attraction
ORLANDO A 6-year-old
Georgia boy suffered a bruised
arm but no serious injuries after
being bitten by a young dolphin
at SeaWorld's petting attraction in
Orlando on Sunday.
The dolphin's teeth did not
break Brandon Jackson's skin in
the incident, his mother, Brenda
Harris, of Valdosta, Ga., told the
Orlando Sentinel on Tuesday.
Harris smacked the animal's
snout until it let go.
SeaWorld spokeswoman Becca
Bides said the dolphin would be
watched and might be retrained in
a "behavioral-modification" pro-
gram, normal for what she called a
"rare" and minor incident.
The family was given a private
dolphin viewing and was offered
four tickets for a return visit.
"He's got a bruised arm. He's
going to be fine," Harris said.
"He doesn't want to see dolphins
anymore."

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Senate plans surveys, shelves meeting guidelines


By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer

Student senators reacted with mixed
emotions to a pair of bills regarding student
outreach and representation at their Tuesday
night meeting.
One bill revised the description of the
Information & Communication Committee's
duties, requiring that the committee be re-
sponsible for the drafting and distributing of
one survey per Fall and Spring semester.
But Sen. Lauren Asher said any student
could request that an additional survey be
sent out during any time of the year, as long as
Student Government approves it.
The bill requires that every senator hand
out 10 surveys to students and submit the stu-


dents' answers at the next Senate meeting.
Asher, the committee chairwoman and one
of the bill's authors, said the surveys could be
tailored for students based on their major or
living area. These groups will encompass not
only UF's colleges and residence halls, but off-
campus housing districts as well, she added.
Asher said the goal of the surveys is to bet-
ter address the concerns of the student body
and ensure that students are using SG-pro-
vided programs such as Gator Nights.
"We're keeping up with the concerns of
the student body," Asher said. "We're holding
ourselves accountable and (this bill) puts that
structure in place."
At its last meeting of the Summer semester,
the Senate passed the bill unanimously, but
another measure designed to assist students


living off campus met with heated debate.
The bill would add to the list of the sena-
tors' duties by requiring every district senator
to attend a minimum of two neighborhood
or complex meetings and two city or county
commission meetings per
term. In order to receive
attendance credit, senators
would have to provide a
signed form from the high-
est-ranking official present
at the meeting.
Sen. Lindsey Johns, one
of the bill's sponsors, said
Asher the most beneficial aspect
of her bill is the potential for increased student
representation in local and community issues.
"It's hard to represent (the off-campus stu-


dents) if you don't know their issues," Johns
said. "We're the eyes and ears out there for
them in those meetings."
The requirements, however, will not take
effect until after the Fall elections. Johns said
the main reason for this is so SG hopefuls
will be sure that they are able to meet those
requirements ensuring students' represen-
tation in community and city issues.
"Being an on-campus senator, it's easy
to represent the 7,500 students on campus,"
Johns said. "But we have to worry about the
other 41,500 in the districts who aren't repre-
sented as much."
The Senate did not vote down the bill, but
it did send it back to the committee for revi-
sion. Senators said they were confident the bill
would reappear on their next agenda.


Counties join forces to fight growing traffic problem


* CITY MARKED $5 MILLION
FOR TRAFFIC EFFORTS.

By OCTAVIAN CANTILLI
Alligator Contributing Writer

A new system is in the works
to synchronize Gainesville's traf-
fic lights, but Alachua County will
need a little help from its neighbors
in order to turn the plan into a real-
ity.
County officials are hoping the
traffic management system, which
is expected to cost $18.2 million,
can be partially funded with money
from the Florida Department of
Transportation.
City officials expect the plan to


save Gainesville drivers $28.5 mil-
lion in gas costs over the next 15
years.
But FDOT will only provide the
cash if Alachua County can coordi-
nate a partnership with neighboring
Marion County.
The transportation planning
organizations of Gainesville and
Ocala, which is located in Marion
County, held a meeting July 25 to
discuss a regional partnership be-
tween the two counties.
The partnership will allow both
counties to qualify for FDOT fund-
ing for various transportation plans.
FDOT has indicated to
Gainesville that the city's traffic
project would qualify for funding if
Alachua County formed a regional

on County) just being nice
to help us, but now we
think we'll be more equal
partners."
Marlie Sanderson

politan Transportation Planning
Organization

transportation plan with another
county.
In order for Alachua and Marion
counties to solidify an agreement
and receive FDOT funding, the
counties must list their planned
projects in order of significance.


Marlie Sanderson, director
of Gainesville's Metropolitan
Transportation Planning
Organization, said Marion County
is very supportive of the proposed
partnership.
Next, Gainesville must create a
regional transportation plan that
identifies its traffic signal project as
the most significant priority.
"It has evolved from (Marion
County) just being nice to help us,
but now we think we'll be more
equal partners," Sanderson said.
The Gainesville City Commission
has allocated $5 million for the
project, UF agreed to provide $3.79
million, and the Alachua County
Commission has proposed setting
aside $2 million in an upcoming


bond. Gainesville officials said hope
the remainder of the money will
come from the state.
Sanderson said he hopes Alachua
and Marion counties would be able
to send a grant application to the
FDOT by January
Philip Mann, supervising en-
gineer for the Gainesville Public
Works Department, said the project
would also include cameras at every
major intersection.
"We don't'want to put in an $18
million system but not give it any
eyes," Mann said.
Officials hope to install cameras
so they can fine-tune the timing of
each signal to match traffic flow as it
changes throughout the day.

On a fin and a prayer


Local fish raised for globe ..-


By CARMEN ROTONDO
Alligator Contributing Writer

HIGH SPRINGS A genius
roams the grassy lands off of Old
Lake City Road. He tends to the
needs of what started as an honor-
able intention over 30 years ago. The
white-haired, gentle genius squints
his eyes, shielding them from the
bright and very warm morning sun
and offers a hand.
"Mike Sipe, owner of Tilapia
Aquaculture,"he says. "Welcome to
my hatchery."
The hatchery, a massive green-
house-type structure that houses
more than 30,000 tilapias, stands
tall in the near distance. The roof
is covered with thick construction-
plastic to keep the hungry birds out.
Tilapias swim and circle the perim-
eters of the concrete tanks, waiting
for the next free food handout.
"C'mon in," Sipe says. "Let me
show you how I feed my fish."
Awhite, gallon-size bucket full of
brown pellets sits on the edge of the
first tank.
Sipe picks it up and slowly walks
from tank to tank, scattering the
-feed. The tilapias swarm and feed
like a vulture tears into a carcass
- hungry and fighting the others
for more than their fair share.
Sipe's quest is to feed the world.
Tilapia is the main entree.
Sipe is a UF graduate with a
bachelor's degree in agricultural ex-
tension and education, a degree that
even he has difficulty in explaining,
and a master's degree in biological
insect control.
"I had so many credit hours by
the time I graduated that many of
my professors joked that I was be-
coming a professional student," Sipe
says. "My degree in agricultural ex-
tension and education is simply a
title that was made up for me by Dr.
G., my major professor who simply
wanted to see me finally graduate."
With such a wide range of college
courses and numerous credithour
curriculums, Sipe is educated in ge-
netics and reproduction. He learned
that certain aquatic species, tilapias
in particular, feed prominently on
flies and larvae, which causes them
to reproduce rapidly. It was with this
concept that Sipe realized he had the
opportunity to help feed the world.
Sipe embraced this opportunity
and dug a pond. After a donation
of a few tilapias from a fish farmer
in Arizona, the pond now houses
aquatic life and marks the beginning


of the importance Sipe places on hu-
man generosity.
As a husband and father of four,
Sipe understands that it costs money
to feed a family never mind the
monumental costs to feed a poor
community or a poverty-stricken
country However, the ability to
provide food to people who are un-
fortunate is not as far out of reach as
some might think.
"Because I use proper natural-
istic resources, a little bit of science
and whole lot of heart, people will
have nourishment tonight because
of my efforts," Sipe says. "It is a
good feeling that allows me to sleep
peacefully at night."
Sipe definitely needs to sleep at
night. He has to be well-rested for a
day in the hatchery.
Sipe has been able to produce
one female to every 1,000 male tila-
pias using the knowledge of genet-
ics. This ratio of male to female is
beneficial because the male tilapias
grow more rapidly and thus can be
shipped and catered more quickly.
Like all scientific concepts, however,
a step in the equation can be miscal-
culated, or nature can occasionally
present the unexpected an unbal-
anced ratio of male to female fish.
When this occurs, Sipe has to sex
the fish, which simply means that
he pours iodine on the genitalia to
determine the sex of a tilapia.
"There is a right time for every-
thing," said Mike. "I can't have too
many fish in one tank and I can't
mix both sexes together until I am
ready for them to breed.
There has tobe somebal- "I don
ance and some strategy nor do I
behind my fish farming
or else my production
rate drops, creating a
fluctuation in the equi-
librium of my system."
Sipe's system allows him to pro-
duce healthy tilapias quickly so he
can ship across the globe.
Sipe's commitment to feed the
hungry and his kind heart set
him and his Alachua County farm
above that of any other fish farms
like it.
Two of Mike's four daughters
were once a part of the less-than-
fortunate population he is so com-
mitted to feeding.
In 1976, Mike, accompanied by
his wife Jan, traveled to Brazil in
search of the'tilapia homorum. This
journey proved rewarding.
Mike was able to partner with
Lynn Loveshin, who got the

evening. He ships the fish across the globe, often to orphanages.


Brazilian wassie fish to sell Sipe the Sip
hornorum species at $5 a fish. This re
investment is responsible for the un
present successful male to female ag
ratio in Mike's hatchery. oft
The tilapia hornorum was not the
only life form that the Sipes brought Si1
home from Brazil. wl
It was when Sipe was off re- th(

wife fell in love with a baby girl she
held in a Brazilian orphanage. thi
Sipe too fell in love with the girl 5,0
just hours later. Christina Macrae til;
became the daughter of the gentle in!
genius and his wife. A
Back at the hatchery, Sipe adds in,
oxygen from a tank just before tap- stc
ing the lids of a box that says "Live mi
Fish." The box is headed to Mexico.
Its final destination is an orphanage. w<
"I remember looking down at
Christy's little brown eyes the first it
time I held her," Sipe says. "They be
were so sad. She was so hungry. It ba
was at that moment when I made a go
silent vow to share my wealth, my ar
food with the rest of the world." w]
Tilapia Aquaculture is a business, lo1
but it operates as a charity as well. pc


pe has catered his male breeds to
staurants, other tilapia fish farms,
iversities for research, orphan-
es, exotic fish owners and, quite
en, to his very own dinner table.
"Of course I eat what I farm,"
e says. "My male breeds are
wholesome and delicious. Eating
em gives me insight into the suc-
ss of my work. If they are bred
ell, they will taste well. Its that
easy."
Sipe's record of kindness
S never seems to end.
In 1981, Sipe took Jan
and Christy on a trip back
to Brazil. The main purpose
of the trip was to teach
e Brazilians how to produce the
)00-to-1 ratio in order to generate
apia as a food source. His teach-
gs led him to his fourth daughter,
Irianne Lynn, whomhe found lay-
g in a "crech" (which is a Brazilian
ite orphanage), abandoned by her
other.
There was no way that Sipe
would return home without her.
"I remember the day as though
was yesterday," Sipe says. "A
autiful, dark-haired, Brazilian
by girl peered out at me with
lden-brown eyes. I held her in my
ms and immediately felt an over-
helming feeling of unconditional
ve. The tilapia that I breed feeds
or, abandoned children such as


my daughters. I was able to be a
father to two of the millions that are
out there. Since I can't save them all,
I choose to use science to at least pro-
vide them with proper nutrition. It is
the very least that I can do."
Sipe raises his daughters and his
tilapia with the utmost care.
"I don't want national recogni-
tion, nor do I feel that the world
owes me anything," Sipe says. "My
two Brazilian daughters bring me so
much pride, immeasurable amounts
of it. I strive to feed the world by
means of fish farming. The world
nourishes me with love the love
that only a father can feel for his
daughters. I am most content."
It is in Sipe's work that his great-
est accomplishments are made.
"It was never about if.I wanted
to do it," Sipe says. "It's about strat-
egy: How can I produce multiple
amounts of a tasty, nutritious fish
that can be shipped worldwide and
be eatenby anyone for survival or
for taste itself? I researched it. Aman
of my intellectual caliber should not
waste it on amateur experimenting.
I should use my intelligence and
understanding of science to feed
and educate the less fortunate on the
process of defining and widening
the food chain."
Sipe's quest is admirable. He
strives to feed the world, one tilapia
at a time.

Genetics Research Building," Ferl said.
Ferl began his UF career in 1980 as an assis-
tant botanist and has held numerous positions
at the university since taking the job, from
serving as a department chairman to taking
charge of ICBR's DNA sequencing Laboratory
in 1988.
UF officials said his experience with the
university made him a great candidate for
his new position, as well as an enthusiastic
one. The position will allow him to work with
people he's already acquainted with.
"I was very pleased- when I found out


about being appointed to the position," Ferl
said. "I've known these people for decades,
and to have a chance to work with them is a
very positive thing."
Months of delib-
eration narrowed
UFAdninistration the choices down,
as notable research-
ers from across the
world were considered for the job.
When all was said and done, officials said
Ferl's record with the university made him the
candidate most worthy of the position.


"He's known for his own outstanding
dedication to research, but he's equally well-
admired for his ability to work with others
and coordinate efforts," said Win Phillips,
UF's senior vice president for research, in a
press release.
Other officials said Ferl's work ethic made
him a perfect choice for the job.
"He knows what makes research work and
what you have to do to get results. That's what
the center needs to keep growing," said Curt
Hannah, one of ICBR's co-founders, in the
release.

UF RESEARCH

Scientists uncover secret of lethal genetic illness


* SUFFERERS HOPE STUDY RESULTS
LEAD TO BETTERTREATMENTS.

By JESSICA MAKRIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF researchers have robbed cystic fibrosis-
related diabetes of some of its mystery.
A recent study suggests that cystic fibrosis-
related diabetes is caused by differences in
beta-cell function, not solelyby the destruction
of the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas
as previously thought.
Cystic fibrosis is the nation's most common
lethal hereditary disorder, affecting 30,000
Americans. Sixteen percent of people with
cystic fibrosis also have diabetes.
UF researchers gave mice with cystic fibro-
sis a low dose of a drug that impaired their
ability to produce insulin, in order to examine
the effects of diabetes on cystic fibrosis.
"We gave a low dose of a drug that injures
insulin-producing cells to mice without CF
and, at the levels we gave it, it didn't affect
blood sugars," said Dr. Michael Stalvey, a UF
assistant professor of pediatrics who led the
study. "The mice with CF were given the same
dose, and it caused a condition very much re-
sembling cystic fibrosis-related diabetes."
Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease caused
by an altered gene. It results in the faulty
transport of salt into organs, such as the
lungs and the pancreas, which leads to thick,
sticky mucus that blocks the ducts in these
organs and disrupts their normal function. In
diabetic cystic fibrosis patients, the body still
produces small amounts of insulin at times,
but it doesn't produce enough to keep blood
sugar levels from skyrocketing with meals,


according to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
Patient Registry.
Many people with cystic fibrosis have a cy-
de of lung infection and inflammation, which
slowly damages the lungs and their ability to
provide oxygen to the body. Diabetes in cystic
fibrosis patients occurs as the patient ages. By
30 years old, a cystic fibrosis patient has a 50
percent chance of developing diabetes.
"Age is the predominant issue with the
development of CF-related diabetes. The odds
of having diabetes become greater and greater
each year older the patient gets," Stalvey said.-
The recommended age to begin screening
for diabetes in cystic fibrosis patients is 14.
Diabetes in cystic fibrosis patients com-
monly causes deterioration of overall health,
Stalvey said.
"With the nutritional issues of CF, if the
diabetes is poorly controlled, the calories eaten
won't be utilized and you're basically starving
yourself," Stalvey said. "Diabetes makes the
overall disease process harder to fight off.
Overall lung function drops, weight drops
and other complications arise."
A cystic fibrosis patient's daily medical
regiment usually includes aerosol treatments,
chest physical therapy, pancreatic enzymes
with every meal and snack and an assortment
of other medications, depending on what
complications the patient has, Stalvey said.
Adding the daunting tasks of several in-
sulin shots a day and multiple blood sugar
checks further complicates a patient's treat-
ment, Stalvey said.
Recent research also suggested that women
have a considerably harder time fighting the
effects of cystic fibrosis when diabetes is diag-
nosed. Life expectancy with cystic fibrosis-re-
lated diabetes is reduced by two years for men


and 16 years for women.
"We really don't know why diabetes affects
the life expectancy of women so much more
than men," Stalvey said. "My theory is that it
has to do with the anabolic process of testos-
terone, but it hasn't been studied enough yet
to know for sure."
"Age is the predominant issue with
the development of CF-related
diabetes. The odds of having dia-
betes become greater and greater
each year older the patient gets."
Michael Stalvey
UF assistant professor of pediatrics

Stalvey said about half of women with
cystic fibrosis have dysfunctional menstrual
cycles due to poor nutrition, weight loss and
chronic disease, which causes the body to
lower estrogen production. If a man's diabetes
causes poor nutrition and weight loss, he can
still produce testosterone.
Despite the added problems that diabetes
causes, some cystic fibrosis-related diabetes
patients are tackling the overwhelming medi-
cal responsibilities of their health care to the
best of their abilities.
"It was very hard for me to start dealing
with diabetes," said Nicole Ellis, a 21-year-old
who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis-re-
lated diabetes a year ago. "I'm still getting the
hang of it all, trying to remember to take my
pills and check my blood sugar before I eat.
I've never been very organized with the rest of
my meds, but this takes it over the edge."
Even though Ellis is adjusting to her newly


acquired diabetes, she still manages to travel
the world she studied abroad in Mexico.
Ellis said the worst part of having diabetes
is just having one more thing to think about.
"I try to. stay really fit, but sometimes, I
just don't have thesenergy to go to the gym or
do my best running because my sugar is.off
balance," Ellis said. "Now on top of having
to make sure I do all my treatments, school
assignments and other responsibilities, I have
to make sure I eat on time so my blood sugars
willbe okay."
Cystic fibrosis patient Tim Imus, 40, who
lives with his wife and dog in Naples, has
had diabetes for five years. He said he went
through a transition period when he first
started dealing with the disease.
"I was pretty discouraged at first because
it was just one more thing to add to my list,"
Imus said. "Once I got the right doctor to help
out and got the correct information on how to
take care of myself, it all fell into place."
Imus said he is excited that UF has con-
ducted research on cystic fibrosis-related
diabetes.
"I have beaten the odds of life expectancy,
and, the more they study the disease, the bet-
ter the future will be," Imus said.
Stalvey said the next step in his animal
research will be to learn about the complica-
tions that arise from diabetes in cystic fibrosis
patients.
"We know diabetes contributes to bone
disease and the inflammatory process, but we
don't know why or how," Stalvey said. "Using
our new model, we can predict the impact on
other processes affected by diabetes in CE
Ultimately, we hope our mice will help us to
test potential new therapies and perhaps, one
day, a cure."

6, ALLIGATOR N THURSDAY, AUGUST 3, 2006


With the Summer session drawing to a close, we know
plenty of students are feeling a little down. It won't be long
until we're all back to the usual 15-credit-hour grind this
Fall.
But, depressing as that may be, there are still plenty of rea-
sons to go on living. Just to prove it, this week we've decided
to highlight the most uplifting recent news stories.
So turn that frown upside down as we bring you yet an-
other inspiring edition of our very own...


Darts & Laurels
Probably the biggest local news this week was the
Tuesday opening of the newly remodeled Library West. Yes,
you read that correctly. No more delays, no more inconve-
niences the library is finally ready to use, and that's why
we're delivering a so-maybe-three-years-and-$30-million-
were-worth-it-after-all LAUREL to UF.
The official opening ceremony won't take place until late
Fall, but that didn't stop a whole herd of Alligator staff from
trotting down University Avenue to check out the new digs.
And what a sight it is. Computer terminals are every-
where. Lounge chairs and enormous beanbag cushions
abound. And the views of the Plaza of the Americas are
outstanding.
The overall effect isn't so much that of a typical library,
but of a place where students can go to hang out, catch up or
just kill time kind of like what the Hub or the Reitz Union
were supposed to be.
We were very impressed, to say the least.
Also worthy of merit over the past week was the univer-
sity's response to helping students sort through the ongoing
conflict between Israel and Lebanon.
We're bestowing a talking-things-out-rationally-is-usu-
ally-more-productive-than-screaming-at-each-other-in-
Turlington LAUREL to the Dean of Students Office for
sponsoring the events.
Todd Hasak-Lowy, assistant professor of Asian and
African languages and expert on the Middle East crisis,
facilitated student discussion at the first forum, which took
place July 26. A second forum will be held tonight in Little
Hall. It will led by Patricia Woods, an assistant professor of
political science.
Call us old-fashioned, but we think that forums like those,
at which students can both express their feelings on the is-
sue and listen to those of others, are some of the best means
available for hashing out divisive political issues. We're
glad to see the Dean of Students Office getting involved in
something that could actually bring two disparate groups on
campus just a little closer together.
Finally, we'll close with a bit more good news as we de-
liver an all-bad-things-must-pass-in-time LAUREL to Cuban
dictator Fidel Castro, who on Monday transferred power
to his younger brother, Raul. Fidel stepped down after un-
dergoing surgery for intestinal bleeding earlier that day, but
claimed in a written statement that he planned on resuming
power after a few weeks.
We, of course, are hoping for the better. This is the be-
ginning of the end for the elder Castro, and, after years of
oppression for the Cuban people, regime change can't come
soon enough.
Of course, as White House Press Secretary Tony Snow
noted, "The fact that you have an autocrat handing power
off to his brother does not mark an end to autocracy."
Certainly, Raul is nobody's idea of a liberal thinker.
During the Cuban Revolution, he organized and ordered
hundreds of political executions.
But, Raul's former chief of staff, Alcibiades Hidalgo said,
"You can argue with Raul. ... You can't argue with Fidel."
And even if Raul isn't the greatest guy in the world, the
transition would leave the island nation one step closer to a
free government.
The transfer of power from one aging, hard-line revolu-
.tionary to another can't continue on forever.
And that's something to be thankful for.

Article misrepresented RA's statements on homosexuality


It would be a misfortune for the univer-
sity to hire for any leadership position
anyone as narrow-minded as I ap-
peared to be in Tuesday's article regarding
resident assistant training and lesbian, gay,
bisexual, transgender and queer issues. Julie
McMahon mentioned the "red flag" that goes
up concerning someone who isn't willing to
learn about alternate points of view. I was
hired as a resident assistant (not an adviser)
by the university's Department of Housing
& Residence Education not because of some
facade I put forth to trick people into hiring
me, but because of my experience, my open-
mindedness, and my willingness to serve and
to learn more about diversity issues, an aspect
of life one absolutely cannot avoid when in
any position of leadership.
During training, the housing department
does not demand that we forget our personal
beliefs for the sake of professionalism; at the
same time, however, we're urged not to force
our beliefs on other people, so as not to be
closed-minded or unfairly biased. As role


models to those students that live on campus,
we are called to be equally open to, available
to, and educated about all types of people,
regardless of race, religion, sexuality, gender
and so forth, to make the students feel com-
fortable about coming to us with a concern they
might otherwise keep to themselves, without
knowing what to do about it. Housing would
most definitely think twice before hiring the
Gaillissa Francis you wrote about on Tuesday.
I'm glad I'm not her.
Yes, this Gaellissa is a Christian. Yes, I do
believe homosexuality is a sin and that all sin
is equal, but it would be dearly ignorant and
irresponsible of me to say just that without
explaining the concept of sin that I hold true:
All sin is equal in the fact that God cannot be
with any of it; light and darkness cannot reside
in the same place without true repentance and
consistent efforts toward salvation. What the
Alligator failed to print is that all sin is not
equal, in the fact that every type of sin affects
us humans differently. For example, murder,
cheating on taxes, laziness, arrogance and lust


Gaellissa allaffectpeople in vari-
Francis ous ways and are treat-
SpeakingOut ed differently among
us; I would bthe last
to plainly say that an
LGBTQ person who comes out to his or her
family is just as wrong as a person killing his
or her most loved ones, without further, more
accurate explanation. How devastating would
itbe to hear that from an RA like me, especially
if I'm talking to a person who is on the verge
of coming out?
Now, about one and a half years ago, I
understood that my spiritual haughtiness was
almost that of those who carry large signs on
Turlington Plaza and unrightfully suppose to
determine everyone's fate except their own. I
thought that unacceptable, which is why I de-
cided to deny myself and learn about people
that had different views and lifestyles. I was
humbled and appalled at my own ignorance,
and I came to a conclusion that I shall never
regret. Christians are called to do two things:
love God always and love people always. We


are never exempt from being accused of sin; I
mess up every day, and I would be doomed if
I didn't remember the cross every day.
Therefore, I am in no place to consider my-
self better than or less sinful than anyone else.
However, one of my duties is to share what
I believe with those who don't know, not so
that anyone feels condemned or inferior, but
so that people can learn about and respect me
as much as I want to learn about and respect
them. I'm called to love my neighbor as my-
self, not because my neighbor is a sinner, but
because I'm a sinner, too. I know that God
loves all of His creation, no matter how much
we tend to turn away from Him; if I, a person
so undeserving of God's love, treat my neigh-
bor as though God doesn't love him or her, I
am undeniably in the wrong. Learning to lead
and care about people the way I do now has
made me into a much better person and has
led me into multiple positions of leadership
like the one I hold and appreciate today.
Gaellissa Francis is a telecommunications
senior.

Police: Mother of four run over, killed by boyfriend


* SUSPECT TURNED HIMSELF IN
AFTER DAYLONG POLICE SEARCH.

By NANCY FISHGOLD
Alligator Contributing Writer
A man killed the mother of his three chil-
dren by running her over with his car after
a fight at a southwest Gainesville apartment
early Tuesday.
Anthony Artell Little, 30, intentionally ran
over his girlfriend, Carol Ann Stokes, who was
eight weeks pregnant, said Sgt. Keith Faulk of
the Alachua County Sheriff's Office.
The confrontation began after Little went to


Madison Cove Apartments, 5500 SW Archer
Road, to confront Stokes about a relationship
with another man, Faulk said.
The couple began arguing and neighbors
called police to break up the disturbance.
David Reaves, 30, who was also at Stokes'
apartment, got involved in the argument, and
Little stabbed Reaves in the lower back, Faulk
said.
At that point, Reaves and Stokes fled.
Meanwhile, Little damaged and vandalized
Stokes' vehicle, Faulk said.
"He took a big knife and punctured the
tires," Faulk said. "Then he attempted more
vandalism. He poured Coke or something in
the engine."


As he was leaving, Little saw Stokes and
Reaves near the front of the apartment com-
plex. Stokes saw Little and ran across Archer
Road to escape.
Little then took his 1972 Chevrolet Impala,'
backed it up and gunned it straight for Stokes,
Faulk said.
Pub C "He struck her from behind,
ty dragged her 40 feet and she
rolled under the vehicle," Faulk
said. Stokes died at the scene.
Little then began making phone calls to
family and friends admitting to what he had
done, Faulk said.
Although authorities were on the hunt for
him all day Tuesday, Little turned himself in at


the Alachua County Jail at 8:30 p.m.
He was charged with first-degree murder
in connection with his girlfriend's death.
An autopsy confirmed that Stokes died of
blunt trauma injuries sustained from being
run over by Little's car. Reaves was treated for
his stab wounds and then arrested as a result
of an outstanding warrant.
"It's tragic that this happened," Faulk said.
"Now her children will grow up without a
mom and definitely without a dad because
he's going to be in jail for a long time."
The investigation is still pending, but Faulk
said Little may face several more charges.
"He's looking at serious time," Faulk said.
"Possibly worse."

Service director will tackle similar tasks after UF


By MARA SLOAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

A Gator innovator is leaving the Swamp
to conquer bigger challenges at Middle
Tennessee State University.
Colette Taylor, the associate director for
UF's Center for Leadership and Service, has
been at the university for nine years. Friday
is her last day of work, and she said she isn't
ready to say goodbye.
At Middle Tennessee State, Taylor will
serve as the associate dean of students and
will oversee organizations such as the Office
of Student Organizations & Community


Service, Greek Life, the Office of Multicultural
Affairs, the Women's Center and other student
groups.
In her wake at UF, Taylor leaves the Center
for Leadership and Service office that she
helped create.
Taylor, a UF alumna, has worked to
strengthen the link between UF faculty and
the Gainesville community through service
projects.
She advises 10 student groups on campus
and has taught numerous classes at UF about
leadership and civic responsibility. Taking a
Socratic approach to teaching and advising,
Taylor said she likes to ask questions to make


students think about what they are doing,
where they are going and how they will get
there.
"Teaching allows me
to remember why I do
what I do," Taylor said. "It
Reminds me that there's so
much we have to do, and
Sit challenges me to think of
new and different ways to
Taylor do things."
She said one of her big-
gest goals when she arrived at UF in 1998 was
to initiate conversations about service learning
in classrooms. At that time, there was not a


university-wide effort that encouraged faculty
to incorporate a service component to their
curricula.
"I love seeing a faculty member get really
excited about a service project and taking that
back into the classroom and seeing it flourish,"
she said.
Three minors offered at UF are a result
of Taylor's work to recognize the value of
leadership and service in academics through
degrees. Students can earn a minor in leader-
ship, organizational leadership in nonprofits
or international humanitarian assistance.
UP has not yet hired a replacement for
Taylor.

Pinkney said he feels that like

As the first batch of actors to
perform the show, the cast of "The

citing opportunities, including the
chance to work with award-winning

Citrus leaves hold key nutrients

Citrus leaves hold key nutrients


By SHAMILA SIDDIQUI
Alligator Contributing Writer

A UF professor has discovered" an untapped resource
in citrus leaves, but he's still searching for ways to put
his knowledge to good use.
UF professor Balasubramani Rathinasabapathi and
his students found in three consecutive experiments
that young citrus leaves are excellent sources for antioxi-
dants, or nutrients that prevent disease, he said.
"We have a product that used to be wasted, and now
have uses for them," said Julia Fant, a UF student work-
ing on the research.
In Fall 2002, Rathinasabapathi and former UF student
Ufuk Koca began researching the leaves of oranges,
grapefruits and pomelos.
Their results were consistent over three growing
seasons.
Rathinasabapathi said he thought investigating the
leaves was an obvious choice because in nature, leaves
contain the most nutrients.
Rathinasabapathi was unsure of what to do with his
collected information, he said.
He contacted the Florida Department of Citrus to find
out if it would be willing to provide further funding for
the research.
The department rejected Rathinasabapathi's request,
so he took it upon himself to find some uses for his
research, he said. Fant, the undergraduate UF student
working on the project, tried to use the leaves for tea.
"It didn't taste good at all," Fant said.
Additionally, the Food and Drug Administration
must approve the use of leaves in tea to make sure the
concoctions are nontoxic, Rathinasabapathi said.
This would make that particular use of leaves difficult
to approve.
"We know people in other countries use leaves, like
grape leaves, in their diet, so it may help prove the leaves
are nontoxic," Fant said.


Rathinasabapathi said he considered the antioxidants
found in the leaves for possible sunscreen use, which he
has not yet found a way to do.
Antioxidants in sunscreen allow it to better protect
skin, Rathinasabapathi said.
The antioxidants in the leaves can also be used to
make all-natural products, replacing chemically engi-
neered antioxidants with natural ones, Fant said.
There are six main antioxidants found in the leaves,
Rathinasabapathi said, but flavonoids are the dominant
ones.
"We know people in other countries use
leaves, like grape leaves, in their diet, so it
may help prove the leaves are nontoxic."
Julia Fant
UF student

The identification part of the research is not complete,
Rathinasabapathi said.
Fant works in the lab for about three to four hours a
week, she said. She conducts some of the spectral scans
for the experiment.
"It has a lot of potential," Fant said. "It's figuring out
where we can go with it."
Rathinasabapathi said the novelty of using citrus
leaves is what may catapult interest in the current re-
search and may spur research in other plant leaves.
Interest in the research may also increase as
Rathinasabapathi learns more if its applicability in sun
protection, he said.
Rathinasabapathi will continue to conduct more re-
search on the leaves with Fant, he said.
There are more uses for antioxidants than sunscreen
and tea. He said he hopes to continue uncovering new
citrus properties.
"As long as we can get a handle on the system, we can
put them to use," Rathinasabapathi said.

Crowd mostly upbeat at long-awaited reopening of main UF library


REACTION, from page 1

the library, "just to marvel at how
beautiful it is."
The $30 million renovations on
began in December 2003, and the
building itself wvas completed in
late May. Library West's reopening
marks the return of a permanent


home for UF's humanities and
social sciences collections.
"It's good to have an up-to-date
library facility that is on par with
those at other schools," Thomas
said.
Working their way up to the
building's higher floors, visitors
rode the elevators to the sixth floor,
which will eventually be accessible


only to graduate students. Those
students will be able to swipe their
Gator 1 Cards through a slot in the
elevator to access the floor.
Graduate student Andrea
Wood said she was excited about
the sixth floor, adding that the
renovated library had much better
technology, lighting and furniture
than its older incarnation.


But not everyone admired the
new library.
Though she had never been in-
side the library before it was reno-
vated, Alexandra Leonces said she
thought the new building was "too
modern" and noisy.
"It just doesn't feel comfortable
to me, like a library should be,"
Leonces said.


But Bill Covey, interim director
of library support services, said he
hadn't heard any complaints.
"One young lady was just go-
ing from one staffer to the next,
talking about how she was in
such shock and such joy," Covey
said. "She was really sorry she
was graduating. She would love to
spend another year here."


Victory completes student quest

and other people see that, then they will
start to understand, your passion, and
they too will be passionate," Schackne
said.
The enthusiasm needs to be brought
back to libraries, Molina said.
"After all, the written word is one of
the biggest milestones to ever occur,"
Molina said. Schackne agreed.
"We're just trying to put the 'fun'
back in the fundamentals of reading,"
he said.
Passionate and ready to read, the two
UF seniors stuck their ground the
ground right outside the library's main
entrance and rested in their sleeping
bags as they waited for their big mo-
ment to arrive.
But like any great moment, it could
not be reached without challenge.
At 3 a.m., Schackne and Molina were
awakened by the bright flashlight of one
of four University Police officials stand-
ing in front of them.


After a brief explanation of their mis-
sion to the officers and an impressive
rundown of the campus rules which
permit camping out as long as campers
are not in an enclosed tent the seniors
dodged removal from the premises and
continued their mission.
"I think they recognized how serious
we were about endeavors, and in the
end they offered their support and best
wishes," Schackne said.
-Morning broke soon after, and before
the guys knew it, a crowd of about 50
had formed behind them and the grand
opening was minutes away.
At 1 p.m., positioned in front of the
silver revolving doors, Schackne and
Molina roared with excitement as they
entered Library West side by side.
Cameras flashed simultaneously
as library staff members and reporters
took pictures of the duet's victory hug
and dramatic collapse to the floor.
They had made it..They were first.
"It's all I imagined it to be and a little
bit more," Molina said as he looked
around.

UF RESEARCH

Pollution scars ocean floor


By BRITTANY BOUFFARD
Alligator Contributing Writer

Near an underwater volcano, a team of geolo-
gists found something strange lurking amongst the
eyeless shrimp and giant dams: pollution from
thousands of miles away.
The team, which included a UF geologist, dis-
covered a foreign metal lead while studying
deposits from an underwater volcano near Italy.
The lead did not originate from underlying rocks or
from any neighboring or European natural source.
By examining the samples, the geologists found
that the lead traveled around the globe from an
Australian lead mine.
"You expect the metals to come from underly-
ing rocks, and then we realized that's not the case,"
said George Kamenov, a UF geologist who is part of
the research team. "When you look around, there
is no natural source for this lead. The only possible
source is this Australian lead."
Deep in the ocean, water seeps through cracks
in the floor where magma heats the water until
it bursts upward through hydrothermal geysers.
Scientists study these areas because of their unique
marine life and natural creation of metal ores.
Therefore, finding lead was not unusual, Kamenov
said, but the distance the substance traveled from
Australia to the Marsili Seamount volcano in the
Mediterranean, less than 200 miles off Italy's coast,
is remarkable.


This was the first observance of human influ-
ence found in such hydrothermal deposits.
"1 guess we can speculate that this is yet another
piece of evidence of how widespread our distur-
bance in the environment is: the fact that we can in-
fluence natural hydrothermal systems," Kamenov
said in a press release.
"When you look around, there is no
natural source for this lead. The only
possible source is this Australian
lead."
George Kamenov
UF geologist

He said the lead was probably mined from one
of the world's largest lead mines, located in New
South Wales, Australia, and shipped to Europe,
where it was used in fuel. Cars then burned the
metal as part of gasoline and it released into the air,
later settling to the ocean floor.
This exemplifies the idea that no substance is
ever truly lost in the environment, Kamenov said.
The deposit samples were collected in the late
1980s, which was around the time when Europe's
unleaded gasoline movement picked up speed, so
cars still burned leaded fuel, Kamenov said.
Researchers hope-utilizing this isotopic tracing
method will help find other pollution sources.

Gainesville mayor says yes to run for second term in '07


* NO CANDIDATES HAVE YET
FILED TO OPPOSE MAYOR.

By ADAM AMIR
Alligator Contributing Writer

Hoping to serve the city three
more years, Gainesville Mayor
Pegeen Hanrahan has filed for re-
election.
Hanrahan, in her first term as
mayor, submitted the paperwork
July 26 to the Alachua County


Supervisor of Elections Office,
even though ballots will not be
cast until early March 2007.
Hanrahan said she would use
another three years in office to
help fight perennial issues such-as
roam towing.
."I worked to increase re-
quirements of tow companies,"
Hanrahan said, referring to recent
changes adopted by the City
Commission. "Things like accept-
ing credit cards and giving change
are long overdue."


Area redevelopment ahd the
environment will also remain
prominent issues on Hanrahan's
agenda.
"My own
Gainesville City perspective
Commission is that with
a major re-
search university like UF, the edge
of campus and downtown should
have better dining, shopping and
more work opportunities," she
said.
Hanrahan, a Gainesville native


and UF alumna, previously served
six years on the commission before
reaching the two-term limit.
In the 2004 mayoral election,
two Democrats ran against each
other, but county Democrats say
they hope no one chooses to op-
pose Hanrahan in the race.
"We don't want another
Democratic candidate running, be-
cause we already have an excellent
one in office," said Evelyn Foxx,
vice chairwoman of the Alachua
County Democratic Executive


Committee. "We want to focus all
of our efforts on re-electing her."
Representatives from the
Alachua County Republican
Executive Committee could not be
reached by press time.
Even as she faces no opponents
so far and secured a 57 percent win
during the last election, Hanrahan
wants to stay realistic.
"Politics aren't easy to predict,"
she said "But I certainly hope that
I'll have the support of the public
for the fourth time."


Miami celebrates illness

CUBA, from page 1

said Cuban exiles are celebrating the news of Castro's failing
health.
'People are rejoicing in the streets," Borge said. "In the
middle of the day people are outside honking their horns
and going crazy."
McCoy said he thinks the celebration may be premature.
"I think in Miami the assumption is the death of Fidel
means the end of the regime," he said. "It's not so clear to me
that's the case."
Borge said many Miami Cubans are hoping that Raul's
leadership fails, leading to a much more open government.
He said some Cuban exiles would like to return home to
a free Cuba.
"My grandfather told me he'd like to return home and
live in a free Cuba, even if it's only for a week," he said.
His grandfather also told him he wants to be buried on
Cuban soil.
McCoy agreed that many Miami Cubans would return to
visit and see relatives, but only under a much freer govern-
ment.
Miami Cubans are adamant in their disapproval of
Castro's regime, McCoy added.
He said the next few weeks will be important as more in-
formation about Fidel's condition and how a succession will
take place becomes known.As for Cuban natives, McCoy
said he thinks the situation is complex. Castro's government
is the only one they know, and it has provided them with
jobs, health care and education. He said many Cubans are
unhappy with their situation, but are nervous about their
future once their leader of four decades dies.

Festival offers weekend escape to Chicago


By CRISTINA BARONE
Avenue Staff Writer


CHICAGO Navigating public trans-
portation isn't always easy.
Take, for example, the Green Line of
the El in Chicago. One end of the line is
called Ashland, as is another stop about
midway though the train's trek across
the city.
If you're new to the city say, visiting
from Gainesville for the Pitchfork Music
Festival this can be more than a little
confusing.
So you stand next to the tracks, staring
intensely at the system map in an attempt
to figure out exactly how to get to Union
Park. Is it south or west?
You're about 90 percent sure that it's
west, and your educated guess is con-
firmed by the steady trickle of 20-some-
things with oversized sunglasses that are
coming up to the same platform as you.


All of you pile into the train and-mi-
raculously get off at the correct Ashland
stop, directly by Union Park.
This all occurred this past weekend.'
On Saturday and Sunday, Chicago was
host to the Pitchfork Music Festival, a
two-day festival that featured 41 bands on
three, stages.
The festival's big names included the
likes of The Walkmen, Spoon, Devendra
Banhart, Silver Jews, The Futureheads,
Diplo, Aesop Rock and Os Mutantes, a
Brazilian band that recently reunited for
the first time in about 30 years.
Many UF students took this opportu-
nity to ditch work or school and make the
trip up to Chicago for the weekend.
Charlie McNamara, 21, flew up to
Chicago on Thursday and stayed there
until Monday.
"It's been awesome. It's so worth it,"
he said.
McNamara said that his favorite act of


Cristina Barone/Alligator Staff
Philadelphia-based band Man Man'performs on Saturday as part of last weekend's
Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago's Union Park.


the festival was Spoon.
"Spoon's performance was a lot
more affecting than the others. Art
Brut was a great performing band,
but Spoon was great musically. There
wasn't a lot of showmanship, it was
just great musically," he said.
Highlights from lesser-known
bands included Man Man, a band
based in Philadelphia. On Saturday,
they performed their unique brand
of high-energy rock. Their music
evokes images of a late night in
New Orleans after way too much
whiskey.
Another highlight was Liars.
This three-piece began their career
a few years ago with a sinister
form of dance punk. They have
since developed a challenging and
mature sound, evidenced Sunday
in their set that weighed heavily
on tribal drumming.
Avant-garde jazz, hip-hop and
electronic music found a home at
the Biz 3 tent. The Chicago Underground
Duo and Matmos were two excellent acts
that performed there on Saturday.
"The guy from Matmos looked like he
walked right out of mission control from
the 1960s," McNamara said.
Not only did students get the chance
to see good music, they got the opportu-
nity to escape from Gainesville to spend
a weekend in one of America's most
prominent cities, lovingly known as "The
Second City," after New York, of course.
However, McNamara disagrees with the
notion that Chicago is a mere second
best.
"I think Chicago is the best American
city," he said. "Unlike New York, Chicago
is a lot more friendly, patient and manage-
able."
The festival was organized by its
namesake, www.pitchforkmedia.com.
The Web site has quickly become one of
the largest and most popular music sites
for music news, reviews and interviews.
The site decided to use their new-
found success to put together a festi-
val with quality acts at a cheap price
- two-day passes sold for a meager $30.
Importantly, water bottles sold for only
$1 each, a godsend in this weekend's
Midwest heat wave.
Good music at a cheap price attracted
many visitors from inside and outside
of Chicagoland (and yes, that is what
Chicago's surrounding area is called).
"If the Pitchfork Music Festival had
been in England or Europe, it would

have cost maybe $120," McNamara said.
"Everything here isn't exorbitantly ex-
pensive. The water is no different than it
would be at CVS."
It was obvious in the way that the fes-
tival was put together that the organizers
actually cared about those attending their
creation. They continually stressed drink-
ing a lot of water, applying sunscreen and
taking breaks from the heat to sit in the
shade.
Despite the skyrocketing mercury,
McNamara didn't let the heat bother him.
"I think it's worth it if you're with your
friends," he said.
Another benefit of the management
was the laid-back atmosphere that it cre-
ated.
Abbie Steinback, 21, was another UF
student who attended the festival.
"It's calm as opposed to other places
I've been," she said. "It's not that the peo-
ple aren't enjoying it. They're just chill."
As crowds were waiting for the next
band to play, there was no pushing to
get to the front of the stage. There was no
crowdsurfing. People wanted to be there
simply to enjoy the music.
Steinback thought that this festival was
a good contrast from other more intense
ones she attended that involved camping.
"Sometimes it's nice to get a shower,"
she said.

Playing 'hard to get' can send the wrong signal


recently got the following
reader letter:

"I got out of a four-year relation-
ship a year ago and have begun dating
a new guy. The problem is that I seem
to not be very good at playing the
games you are apparently supposed to
.play in the beginning of ALL relation-
ships. Sometimes I'm just not in the
mood for games. The times that I have
tried to skip the stupid games, it blows
up in my face. Each time that I have
invited him somewhere he turns me
down, but he is always trying to make


plans with me otherwise. I'm guessing
it's too early to ask HIM on dates? Is
this his way of keeping things slow
and letting things happen on HIS
terms? What rules should never be
broken? And when can the rules be
compromised?"

Unfortunately, there isn't one
answer to this question. The Rules,
or, more accurately, "playing hard
to get," are favored by old-fash-
ioned girls (and their fathers) for
their insistence that you should
"never accept a date on Saturday

Home workouts provide cheap alternative to gym


Seeping your body in shape can bend
your wallet out of shape when gym
membership fees and expensive
health foods seem to weigh you down. But
trading a beer belly for a healthy lifestyle
shouldn't cut down your bank account.
Why burn money to bur fat on a Bowflex
when there are cheaper alternatives?
Settle down, Chuck Norris you can
get a slimmer body for a slimmer sum.
First, the obvious: Do push-ups and
sit-ups at home, and walk, jog or run ev-
erywhere you can. A tank of gas doesn't
exactly go as far as it used to, but it doesn't
cost you a thing to slip into some sneak-
ers and let your feet get you where you
need to go. You can keep cool in the shade
jogging pretty much anywhere on cam-


pus, and the Swamp can be the biggest
StairMaster you've ever run if you're up
for the challenge. To really build up those
calf muscles, strap on some ankle weights
while walking to class-you
might have to spend a little cash Jenn
on a pair, but you're saving time
spent exercising.
Second, as corny as it sounds,
don't be dumb about dumbbells.
You can make your own weights
at home using items around the
-house, such as soup cans, water
bottles, milk jugs or tennis cans
filled with sand, rocks, kitty litter or even
spare change. Fill to the exact weight you
want, and when you're ready for a heavier
weight, you can just add to the container.


If the typical running-jogging-flex-
ing-push-up exercise routine isn't your
thing, try dancing. For $5 you can master
Buenos-style Argentine Tango at Emerald's
Lounge on Tuesday evenings or
Pfaff learn Louisiana-style Zydeco at
Fat Tuesday on Thursdays.
Eating right is part of healthy
living too, and it begins with
shopping right. Sure, Ramen
noodles and McDonald's burg-
ers are cheap, but healthy meals
S can be just as inexpensive.
Fresh fruits and vegetables
are cheaper when they're in season and
make better snacks than potato chips.
Chicken backs and necks are inexpensive,
along with dry or canned peas, beans and


lentils, which can last up to a year.
Don't overstock on anything that can
go bad quickly, and avoid battered fish
and meats that come with sauces, flavor-
ings or stuffings, which are more costly
than plain meat or frozen fish.
Compare prices, clip coupons, stick to
store-brand names and don't buy pack-
aged meals you'll save money cooking
from scratch.
At home, freeze whatever foods you
can, especially breads and bagels, to make
them last longer and stay fresher. Cooking
in bulks will also spread out meals for left-
overs the next day.
Count calories and the cash you can
save you and your bank account are
going on a diet.

like another, Pandora uses a different meth-
od, said Etienne Handman, chief operating
officer of Pandora Media.
"We have musicians who listen to every
single song that plays on Pandora," said
Handman. "And they measure and write
down into a computer actually the measure-
ments that they take of all these different
characteristics of music that we've identi-
fied."
Pandora uses the Music Genome Project,
an analysis of each song by musicologists in
its 500,000-song database based on more than


e
i,
ri


n

Ni


400 attributes. The genome includes straight-
forward traits like tempo to more obscure
characteristics like mode and how much bra-
vado the lead singer has in his or her voice,
Handman said.
Mathematical techniques are also applied
to measure distances between songs based on
similarities.
."Songs can be near each other in space
and we have art engine that can figure out
how far apart things are and can find nearby
neighbors," Handman said. "And that's how
watch son Pandora selects the group of
Songs songs that it will use to make
same genre the station."
milarsound Handman said Pandora
e about who uses several different methods
ist is. to add music to its database,
which grows from 12,000
ughes songs to 15,000 songs each
gineering major month.
"Our goal is to have all the
good music," he said. "Good means it has
an audience. Somebody will appreciate it. It
doesn't mean you like it. It means somebody
does."
Pandora employs a curator to find mu-
sic from Web sites, blogs, Billboard charts,
College Music Journal and retail stores.
Pandora's listeners can e-mail the site to
suggest artists, and independent musicians
and labels can submit music directly.
If a listener searches for an artist that
Pandora doesn't have in its database, that in-
formation gets logged. Handman said when
enough people search for it, someone will
research it and add it to the site.
Pandora's co-founder, Tim Westergren,
goes on the road looking for potential music
and audiences and explains to people the
site's mission and how it works, Handman
said. The site also relies on word of mouth.
"We're not reaching out to anybody in
particular," Handman said. "We put every
kind of music we can lay our hands on into
the music genome. And we let people who
come listen to what they like."

LOCAL

Local band to finish national tour in Gainesville


By SHEM FLEENOR
Avenue Writer

Clock Hands Strangle's long and winding
trek through the heart of darkness is coming to
an end Saturday, at Common Grounds.
They've traveled thousands of miles across
North America, stuffing their faces with some
of the worst food money can buy.
Through the fire and brimstone of seem-
ingly endless stretches of tree-lined highways,
they've gained a better understanding of the
heart of America and themselves.
"The best part of the tour was being able
to see half of the country through the eyes of
people who actually live in the states we vis-
ited, not just tourist stops and highways," said
front man Todd Portnowitz. "We met folks
who'd invite us to their homes and feed us,
give us a place to sleep."
But for every blessing the group received, a
jolt to their systems was just around the bend.
The worst part of the tour was the eco-
nomic struggle.
"I hate saying, 'We have shirts and CDs
back there, anything will help us pay for gas,'"
Portnowitz explained. "You feel like you're
running an infomercial or something. But then
again, you need the money to get to the next


show."
The humiliation of pitching sales to fans for
food and gas money wasn't the only due the
indie folk collective was forced to pay on their
arduous, exhilarating journey.
"We came across this guy in Jackson,
Miss.," said guitarist Nick t's kind of h
Hill. "He was totally crazy,
no question about it. He was when you're
trying to get us to use some of you're follow
his 'Cannonball Chew.' Every ba
time he took a bite, he did this
crazy dance." Todd P(
The daffy Mississippian Clock Hands St
explained to the band the
irony of his 20-year-old son paying his dad's
court-ordered child support payments. The
loon insisted the band buy him beer and show
him how to use a computer.
But for every soul-jarring encounter, the
band was soothed by some of humanity's
greatest artistic accomplishments.
They stopped by a John Lennon art ex-
hibit in Asheville, N.C. They spent hours in
the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery
in Washington, D.C. They saw works by
Picasso at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in
Manhattan.
"We saw Niagara Falls at night, all lit up


a

w
in

ra


red, blue and green, before driving across
Canada to Michigan," Portnowitz recalled.
In between shows and having their breath
snatched by the splendor their eyes witnessed,
the financially strapped group crammed the
only food they could afford into their stom-
achs.
rd to do well a
rd to do well a"I feel like crap," said bass-
folk act and ist Brian Bo. "Too much fast
ing a metal food, not enough sleep."'
d. "I see my face getting fatter
as the days progress," said key-
tnowitz boardist Cristian Duran. 'f's
ingle front man horrible; the only thing losing
Weight is my wallet."
On tour, food becomes such an issue that it
actually influences the fondness of memories.
"My personal favorite show was in
McCombs, Miss." Portnowitz said. "But that
might have a lot to do with the all-you-can-
eat-and-drink-for-free policy. We just let loose,
got to know everyone, played for almost an
hour, and really just had a good time. It was a
show that made the less fortunate ones seem
worth it."
The band's favorite stops were
Massachusetts, Michigan and Mississippi.
"Those shows were the most fun because
the people were into us the most," Bo said.


"The people were outstanding and fun to
hang out with."
For Clock Hands Strangle, the worst stop
was in New York City. The parking was a
nightmare, the venue was subpar, and the
crowd was less than receptive.
"It's kind of hard to do well when you're a
folk act and you're following a metal band,"
Portnowitz said.
Through the ups and downs, the b05t'has
yearned Gainesville's friendly confines.
"I'm excited to get home and take a break,"
Bo said. He lives in Melbourne, but plans to
unwind a bit in Gainesville.
The group expects this homecoming to be
the climax of their arduous experience.
"I'm excited to play Common Grounds,"
Cristian said. "Our tour has kind of been a
countdown to that show."
Portnowitz studied in Rome for more than
a month prior to embarking on his musical/
spiritual exodus across North America. For
him, Gainesville symbolizes the long-awaited
conclusion of a marathon.
"I haven't been home in over 11 weeks,"
he said. "Not sleeping on a floor will be nice.
Gainesville is always a good time, and the
show at Common Grounds should be just
that."

ON CAMPUS

Aspiring novelist writes in union, invites inquiries


VINCENT M. MASSARO
Avenue Contributing Writer

At a round table in a dimly lit
corer of the Reitz Union Food
Court sits a man with two of
his most valuable possessions: a
ToslH.Ga laptop and an expression
of calm determination.


Scattered about his work
space are dense philosophy texts,
a digital wristwatch and two
book bags.
But what grabs the attention
of unsuspecting passersby is a
warm, inviting smile and a sign
that reads, "I'm writing a novel.
If you'd like, please come talk to


Marrin Halelamien/Alligator
UF student Chris Lane uses the ambient noise at the Reitz Union to
focus on writing his novel.


me about it."
Chris Lane, a 22-year-old
Japanese major at UF, has been
writing the novel "Standing in
the Shadow of a Guilty Man"
with his friend Patrick Prugh
since last summer.
Since the start of Summer
A, Lane has been in the union
weekday afternoons adding to
the more than 200 pages already
written.
"The noise keeps me awake,"
he said, projecting his words over
the rumble of busy voices. "I have
to stay here to stay sharp."
Last year, the authors took
time off school and worked 13-
hour days in Prugh's parents'
house.
With his co-author in
Massachusetts for the summer,
Lane said he found himself fall-
ing asleep in their home office
and decided to move work into
the union.
After a week into the semester,
he got the idea to put his story on
display.
"It's boring and lonely not to
share your ideas," he said, add-
ing that he loves to get feedback
from potential readers.
Visitors
Lane describes the novel as
"sci-fi, fantasy fiction" or "specu-
lative" when-curious union-goers
stop by to chat, and he gives
them a brief synopsis of the plot
- a synopsis he says he's become
adept at telling.
"I'm innocent; I'm a woman,"
one Preview parent quipped
about the "Guilty Man" title.
"A lot of Preview parents have
some wit to share as they walk
by," Lane said, chuckling behind
his beard.
Some days are busier than
others, according to Lane, who
recalled a few days when about


15 people stopped by to talk.
Francisco Callejas, a 1996 UF
graduate in journalism, met Lane
in the union July 2.
Callejas, 37, said in a telephone
interview that students in their
20s are typically concerned with'
parties and their own cliques, not
writing novels.
"It's refreshing to find a col-
lege student doing something
that will stand the test of time,"
he said. "I just wish him success
with it."
Jose Hernandez was finishing
a Preview session when he and
a friend happened upon Lane in
the union.
When they saw the sign,
their "freshman curiosity" was
aroused, and they went to talk
to Lane, Hernandez wrote in an
e-mail.
"To tell you the truth, I liked it
very much," he wrote.

Working Together
The. idea for the story started
several years ago when the two
authors were in high school.
-Prugh originally wrote it as a
screenplay and bounced ideas
off Lane.
They later tried to convert it
into. a novel but had not dedi-
cated all their time to it until last
year:
The authors said they drew
from movies; TV and video
games for inspiration.
At 220 manuscript pages, the
book is about 80 percent done,
according to Lane.
Manuscript pages are the size
of printer paper, and they hold
more content than pages in a
novel do.
Their self-imposed deadline
was tentatively set for August,
before classes start, but Lane said
they will probably need more
time.


Prugh, 22 years old, is major-
ing in digital media studies at
UF.
In a telephone interview, he
said that although most of the
year was spent writing, a lot of
time was spent learning how to
write.
He said story flow is one of the
most important things in success-
fully working together.
"We didn't just write a book,"
he said. "We developed a process
for writing."
Lane brings logic to the project
and pays painstaking attention to
detail, explained Prugh, who
credits himself with the big-pic-
ture approach.
Though Prugh is working
96-hour weeks this summer to
finance the upcoming school
year, he still manages, to spend
time revamping the novel's early
chapters.
Among other odd jobs, he
works for an electrician and gives
tours of an 18th-century windmill
in Nantucket, Mass.
Prugh said that he and Lane
are going back to school in Fall,
as planned, even though people
told them the year off was a big
risk.
Now is the time to for them to
take risks, he said, because they
are young.
"It was painful to sit in school
and hear them say that one day
you'll get your break," he said.
"School should never get in the
way of your career."
As for getting their work to
bookstores, Prugh said they have
a plan but won't focus on it until
the book is finished.
"We call this success even if
we don't get published," Prugh
said.
Lane, however, remarked in
an earlier interview, "The goal is
to get published."

Orioles sign UF third baseman


ALLIGATOR SERVICES

The UF baseball team's offense is
taking blow after blow one pro-
fessional contract at a time.
The Gators' most recent loss is
infielder David Cash, who signed


with the Baltimore Orioles on
Monday and will forego his senior
season. He was a 40th-round pick
(1,195th selection) by the Orioles in
June's MLB Amateur Draft.
"We are very happy for David to
be able to continue his career in the
professional ranks," UF coach Pat


Casey Lawson / Alligator
Gators infielder David Cash swings during a game against Louisiana
State on May 20.


McMahon said. "We are apprecia-
tive of his efforts for
our program during
OatOrS his time at Florida
asdball and wish him the
best."
In his first season
after transferring from Chipola
Junior College, the infielder com-
piled the second-highest team bat-
ting average witn a .298 clip; Cash
hit .320 in Southeastern Conference
play.
He started 38 games at third,
scored 22 runs, totaled 16 RBI,
tallied six doubles, collected two
triples and belted one homer.
Cash marks the fourth impact
player the Gators have lost to
professional teams this summer.
Infielder Adam Davis signed with
Cleveland while catcher Brian
Jeroloman signed with Toronto and
outfielder Gavin Dickey inked a
deal with Seattle.
UF continues to wait and see if
slugger Matt LaPorta will follow
in their footsteps. LaPorta fell to
the 14th round of the 2006 draft
(Boston) one season after leading all
NCAA Division I schools in home
runs. LaPorta missed much of the
2006 season because of an oblique
injury.
Cash is also leading records this
summer, topping the Cape Cod
League in batting average after hit-
ting .291 (30 for 103) for the Bourne
Braves in 26 games. Selected as
an outfield starter for the Western
Division in last Saturday's All-Star
Game, he was tied for the club lead
with 14 runs while compiling 6 RBI
and four doubles. Since the West
squad was running out of available
arms, Cash also pitched one inning
during the All-Star Game.
Cash played high school ball in
Odessa and spent one year at South
Carolina. The Orioles also selected
him in the 21st round of the 2003
draft out of high school.


Spurrier hopes for

improved facilities

SPURRIER, from page 32

Spurrier said.
He also wants a renewed commitment to infect
the fan base. South Carolina lacks a modern academ-
ic advising facility, and its locker room and training
areas don't bring the word "plush" to mind.
So the school has embarked on a $100 million
campaign, according to The State, to spur the neces-
sary booster donations.
Still, while the program has not yet merited SEC
championship talk, all roads seem to point upward.
"He brought the attitude that we can play, that
we can win here at South Carolina," Gamecocks cor-
nerback Fred Bennett said. "That's one of the things
he always says: 'We can win here
at South Carolina.' By him just
saying that, he got the players to
believe that we can win, and we
can play against the best."
The Gamecocks will have to
clear their share of hurdles in
2006. They lost nearly their entire
Spurrier offensive line and must replace
cornerback Jonathan Joseph and safety Ko Simpson,
who left for the NFL. Their recruiting class was de-
cent, but fell short of the standard set by SEC teams
like UF, Georgia and the like.
Speaking of UF, Spurrier will experience what
might be the most bizarre moment of the col-
lege football season: running into The Swamp in
Gainesville draped in garnet and black. And who
would the coach be if he declined to take a pre-
liminary veiled shot at his alma mater? Discussing
UF quarterback Chris Leak and his place in Urban
Meyer's spread offense, Spurrier remarked:
"I don't know if they're going to ask him to run
with it a lot. But he's a beautiful passer of the ball,
no doubt about it."

Tennessee looks to recover from 2005 disaster


* COACHES TO ENFORCE
ZERO-TOLERANCE POLICY.

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

HOOVER, Ala. Perhaps
Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer
hit rock bottom when his wife
called him "spoiled."
Or maybe it was when she
kicked him out of the house. On
Christmas, no less.
"We were leaving or packing
or whatever, and [Victoria] said,
'You got to get the heck out of
this house. You're driving us
crazy,'" Fulmer recalled.
That's the kind of year 2005
was for Fulmer. The Volunteers
(5-6) suffered a losing season and
missed a bowl for the first time
since 1988. Why?
Quarterbacks Erik Ainge and
Rick Clausen engaged in a game
of virtual tag for the starting spot.
A slew of starters suffered inju-
ries, including tailback Gerald
Riggs' season-ending ankle ail-
ment. And complacency, set in at
a program grown accustomed to
winning.
"You can say [players lost fo-
cus last year]," senior defensive
tackle Justin Harrell said. "There
were times when guys were
pretty much looking at the future
than at the team. We can't have
that. Football is a team sport, and


that's one of the main focuses
of the. seniors. We want to let
everyone know that no player is
greater than everybody else, and
we have to put egos aside."
To move along, the coaches
held a team meeting at the end
of the season and enacted a zero-
tolerance policy. The Volunteers
would later amp up spring
practices, start wearing similar
clothes and now partake in more
team.activities.
"It's like a complete turn-
around," Harrell said.

OLE MISS OPTIMISTIC ABOUT
SCHAEFFER: The Brent Schaeffer
saga is coming to an end. Maybe.
Schaeffer, a dynamic quarter-
back who played at the College
of the Sequoias last season before
announcing he was transferring
to Mississippi, hopes to complete
summer coursework today before
being able to join the team.
"Our guys are anticipating
Brent coming and welcoming him
to the football team," Mississippi
coach Ed Orgeron said: "We re-
ally are prepared to make him
feel at home with our football
team, to teach him the way we do
things at an accelerated pace,
obviously."
Schaeffer initially started tak-
ing correspondence courses to
gain admission. Orgeron,. how-
ever, convinced him to finish his
schoolwork at the College of the

Media Days in Hoover, Ala.
Sequoias in California. Should
he pass the necessary courses,
Schaeffer could still have to
wait several -days to be certified
by the NCAA Clearinghouse.
Mississippi starts practice
Saturday. Are the players antsy
about if he will ever arrive?
"I'm sure everybody is won-
dering that; even y'all are won-
dering if he's coming or not,"


tight end Robert Lane said.

SPURRIER ZINGERS: Though not
quite in his brashy mode of the
'90s, South Carolina coach Steve
Spurrier can still work the English
language.
On whether a 12-game
schedule is too demanding:
"I watch girls' basketball, and
they'll play four straight nights


at the Southeastern Conference
Tournament. I don't hear them
bitching and moaning that
they're playing too much."
On how to ward off agents:
"As long as [players] are driv-
ing their old, beat-up cars, we're
OK."
On whether his offense com-
pares to those he had at UF: "No,
not quite; not quite right now."


Gators excel at tourney


ALLIGATOR SERVICES

IRVINE, Calif. Gators sophomore
Stephanie Cota turned in the best fin-
ish for a UF swimmer on day one of the
2006 Conoco-Phillips USA Swimming
National Championships when she
placed fifth in the women's 400-meter
freestyle with a time of 4 minutes, 14.07
seconds.
With a pair of top-10 finishes be-
tween them, juniors Tobias Work and
Dustin McLarty provided the high-
lights for the 18 UF men's swimmers.
Work began the evening session with
a seventh-place finish in the men's 400
free with a time of 3:52.49. That time
placed Work sixth in school history in
the event after his preliminary time of
3:52.39 vaulted him to third.
Cota's preliminary time of 4:13.51 in
the women's 400 free was good for fifth
all-time at UF.
She also recorded a prelim time of
1:00.70 in the women's 100 butterfly to
tie her for fourth in the-UF record book,
and went on to finish 16th in the event
with a time of 1:01.35.
McLarty earned a ninth-place fin-
ish in the men's 400 individual medley
(4:23.63). Incoming freshman Clark
Burckle placed 12th with a time of 4:
24.93, while junior Kevin Nead turned
in a time of 4:27.66 to finish 15th.


VOLLEYBALL WINS ACADEMIC AWARD:
The UF volleyball team was given
the Game Plan/American Volleyball
Coaches Association Team Academic
Award for the 2005-06 school year.
The award, initiated in the 1992-93
academic'year, honors college and high
school teams that display excellence in
the classroom by maintaining at least
a 3.30 cumulative team GPA on a 4.0
scale and a 4.10 cumulative team GPA
on a 5.0 scale during the school year.
The Gators were the only team
within the Southeastern Conference to
be honored.

HORSCHEL TIED FOR FIFTH: UF sopho-
more Billy Horschel shot an even-par 70
at the 104th Western Amateur at Point
O'Woods Golf and Country Club, put-
ting him in a five-way tie for ninth place
at the end of the first day.
"Billy hasn't played much this sum-
mer, so he's just starting to get comfort-
able out on the course," said Gators
head coach Buddy Alexander. "The
.Western is grueling competition, but
he can continue to be successful if he
remains in the present. Billy just needs
to be Billy."
Incoming freshman Tyson Alexander
finished the day with a 2-over 72, and
junior Manuel Villegas shot a 6-over
76.

PLAYERS AND FANS HAVE BEEN
SLOW TO ADAPT TO HIS STANDARDS.

.By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

HOOVER, Ala. It is one year into this
newest phase, and Steve Spurrier hasn't
lost his sense of humor.
"Our trophy case has an Outback Trophy
in it, and that's the biggest one," he said.
It is one year into a project that would
have made Michelangelo's David seem like
a finger-painting task, and Spurrier hasn't
lost touch with reality.
"We got nowhere to go but up," Spurrier
said.
And in this, his second summer at the
helm of South Carolina football, Spurrier,
most importantly, has not lost his edge, his
confidence.
*"We can tell recruits, 'You have a chance
to come here and do something that's
never been done before in the history of
the school,'" Spurrier said. "'If you go
to Florida, Tennessee, Alabama, Auburn
- they've already won [Southeastern
Conference titles]. You can come here and
do it the first time ever.'"
Unfortunately for this 61-year-old, the


rebuilding

source of his motivation is also the fountain
spring for his headache: The Gamecocks
have never been good for an extended
stretch of time.
So despite the fact that South Carolina
won a surprising seven games in Spurrier's
first season including head turners
against Tennessee and former love UF -
this is an uphill battle. It is a fight to change
the culture of South Carolina mediocrity.
"Our commitment level through-
out the entire team is not good
enough. ... We have about five to
seven guys that don't understand
what it takes to be a winner."
Steve Spurrier
South Carolina coach

Where to start? How about dedication.
Spurrier is still not certain there is
enough on his team. After all, when more
than a handful of your players skip vol-
untary summer workouts, some attitude
adjustment must follow.
"Our commitment level throughout
the entire team is not good enough. ... We
have about five to seven guys that don't
understand what it takes to be a winner,"

FOOTBALL

Gators' practice full of subplots


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

To say UF coach Urban Meyer is
giddy about fall practice would be
putting it lightly.
"I can't tell you how much I can't
wait to get into that hotel with those
players and spend time with them,"
he said. "Some people dislike train-
ing camp. I'm a head football coach
that loves training camp because I live
with them. That's the greatest time of
the year."
The Gators commence fall practice
Sunday as the 2006 off-season winds
down. Beginning Sunday, players will
reside in a local Holiday Inn for the
duration of fall practice.
Some storylines for fans and observ-
ers to keep in mind during practice:

FRESHMAN SPOTLIGHT: Freshmen
will comprise 26 of the Gators' 85
allotted scholarships. Among those
expected to contribute are Percy


Harvin (wide receiver), Brandon
Spikes (linebacker), Carl Johnson and
Maurice Hurt (offensive linemen)
along with Wondy Pierre-Louis,
Jacques Rickerson and Markihe
Anderson (cornerbacks).

UP FOR GRABS: While Meyer has
already named former safety Reggie
Nelson a starter at cornerback, there
is no telling how this position will
shape up as the sea-
son nears. Reggie
Lewis, Nick Brooks
and the freshman
Triumvirate will all
battle for playing
time. Then there's
Ryan Smith, the
Nelson Utah cornerback
who could transfer at any time.

THE MON WILLIAMS SHOW:
Everybody has assumed the start-
ing tailback will be DeShawn Wynn,
Kestahn Moore or Markus Manson.


But a certain prolific runner from
Texas by the name of Mon Williams
has something to say about that. The
6-foot-2 back has 4.4-second 40-yard
dash speed.

CALDWELL AND MCDONALD RETURN:
Wide receiver Andre Caldwell, and
defensive tackle Ray McDonald will
be full-speed as soon as that practice
horn blows.

HARVIN'S NEED FOR SPEED: Percy
Harvin will show everyone whether
he is worth the hype and perhaps
a starting job behind Dallas Baker
and Caldwell.

HARRIS WATCH: Starting defensive
tackle Steven Harris still has not re-
joined the team, according to Meyer's
last public word. The Gators are deep
on the line, but losing Harris would
be a huge blow.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 3,2006 Eager rush at opening By ALEX TIEGEN Alligator Writer When the clock struck 1 Wednesday afternoon, UF students and faculty were ready. They were lined up in front of Library West's revolving doors, eager to push through and enter the building for the first time since it closed nearly three years ago. "It's like the opening of a Macy's, only there are no shoes," yelled a woman as the line rushed through the door. Escalators brought guests up to the building's second floor while library staff members yelled welcomes from above. Some guests walked directly to the library circulation desk for maps of the vast new building. Others decided to take a guided tour of the library or risked exploring its depths on their own.

By GABRIELA GONZALEZ Alligator Contributing Writer Eric Schackne and Filup Molina refused to settle for second and third. The UF seniors said they wanted to stand out at the "metropolis-like" university, so they decided they would be first to enter UF's newly renovated Library West when it reopened to the public Wednesday. To achieve their goal, Schackne and "Not many people can say they were the first to do anything." Filup Molina UF senior Molina camped out in front of the library the night before its opening so they could be the first ones inside the next day. Under a self-assembled gazebo, they sat on. two foldout chairs with three gallons of Crystal Light Peach Tea and a bag containing Kix cereal, two bananas and Skippy peanut butter. "Not many people can say they were the first to do anything. Even doing the smallest thing is a big deal," Molina said. At 12:03 a.m. Wednesday morning, the journey to make the history books began. Schackne and Molina set up shop in front of the library's main entrance. Two battery-powered fans kept them cool, and an electronic game of Guesstures provided entertainment during their quest to become pioneers. But the adventure was not only about being the first, Schackne said. This was about passion.

INTERNATIONAL Students respond to Castro By JAMES RIGNEY Alligator Contributing Writer There is no love lost between Miami Cubans and Fidel Castro. 'I would love to see Castro dead, and Raul too," said Anthony Borge, president of the Cuban American Student Association at Florida International University. Cubans and Cuban exiles in Florida faced that possibility when the 79-year-old Castro ceded power to his brother Raul after being hospitalized Monday. But some experts say a possible change in leadership may not mean an immediate end to the Communist nation's current regime. Terry McCoy, a UF Latin American studies -professor, said the question is whether Castro's brother can hold onto power. Some say the 75-year-old Raul Castro is less charismatic than his older brother and lacks Fidel's leadership qualities. McCoy said Fidel's death opens up the possibility of change, but he thinks the government can at least survive in the short term. The succession plan first involves Raul Castro and then a circle of much younger successors, who would run the country through some type of collective leadership, McCoy said. He said there is little chance Raul or his successors would usher in a new era of leadership, and he doesn't expect any type of competitive elections in the near future but said there may perhaps be a shift toward a market-style communism like in China and Vietnam. S"They're -all Marxist-Leninists," he said. "There is not a democrat among them." In Miami, multiple news reports SEE CUBA, PAGE 12

THURSDAY, AUGUST 3,2006 N ALLIGATOR, 3 STUDENT GOVERNMENT Senate plans surveys, shelves meeting guidelines By JESSICA DaSILVA Alligator Writer Student senators reacted with mixed emotions to a pair of bills regarding student outreach and representation at their Tuesday night meeting. One bill revised the description of the Information & Communication Conuittee's duties, requiring that the committee be responsible for the drafting and distributing of one survey per Fall and Spring semester. But Sen. Lauren Asher said any student could request that an additional survey be sent out during any time of the year, as long as Student Government approves it. The bill requires that every senator hand out 10 surveys to students and submit the students' answers at the next Senate meeting. Asher, the committee chairwoman and one of the bill's authors, said the surveys could be tailored for students based on their major or living area. These groups will encompass not only UF's colleges and residence halls, but offcampus housing districts as well, she added. Asher said the goal of the surveys is to better address the concerns of the student body and ensure that students are using SG-provided programs such as Gator Nights. "We're keeping up with the concerns of the student body," Asher said. "We're holding ourselves accountable and (this bill) puts that structure in place." At its last meeting of the Summer semester, the Senate passed the bill unanimously, but another measure designed to assist students living off campus met with heated debate. The bill would add to the list of the senators' duties by requiring every district senator to attend a minimum of two neighborhood or complex meetings and two city or county commission meetings per term. In order to receive attendance credit, senators would have to provide a signed form from the highest-ranking official present at the meeting. Sen. Lindsey Johns, one of the bill's sponsors, said Asher -the most beneficial aspect of her bill is the potential for increased student representation in local and community issues. I "It's hard to represent (the off-campus students) if 'you don't know their issues," Johns said. "We're the eyes and ears out there for them in those meetings." The requirements, however, will not take effect until after the Fall elections. Johns said the main reason for this is so SG hopefuls will be sure that they are able to meet those requirements -ensuring students' representation in community and city issues. "Being an on-campus senator, it's easy to represent the 7,500 students on campus," Johns said. "But we have to worry about the other 41,500 in the districts who aren't represented as much." The Senate did not vote down the bill, but it did send it back to the committee for revision. Senators said they were confident the bill would reappear on their next agenda. Co Duties j im forces to fight growing traffic prob lem CITY MARKED $5 MILLION FOR TRAFFIC EFFORTS. By OCTAVIAN CANTILLI Alligator Contributing Writer A new system is in the works to synchronize Gainesville's traffic lights, but Alachua County will need a little help from its neighbors in order to turn the plan into a reality. County officials are hoping the traffic management system, which is expected to cost $18.2 million, can be partially funded with money from the Florida Department of Transportation. City officials expect the plan to save Gainesville drivers $28.5 million in gas costs over the next 15 years. But FDOT will only provide the cash if Alachua County can.coordinate a partnership with neighboring Marion County. The transportation planning organizations of Gainesville and Ocala, which is located in Marion County, held a meeting July 25 to discuss a regional partnership between the two counties. The partnership will allow both counties to qualify for FDOT funding for various transportation plans. FDOT has indicated to Gainesville that the city's traffic project would qualify for funding if Alachua County formed a regional "It has evolved from (Marion County) just being nice to help us, but now we think we'll be more equal partners." Marlie Sanderson director of Gainesville's Metropolitan Transportation Planning Organization transportation plan with another county. In order for Alachua and Marion counties to solidify an agreement and receive FDOT funding, the counties must list their planned projects in order of significance. Marlie Sanderson, director of Gainesville's Metropolitan Transportation Planning Organization, said Marion County is very supportive of the proposed partnership. Next, Gainesville must create a regional transportation plan that identifies its traffic signal project as the most significant priority. "It has evolved from (Marion 'County) just being nice to help us, but now we think we'll be more equal partners," Sanderson said. The Gainesville City Commission has allocated $5 million for the project, UF agreed to provide $3.79 million, and the Alachua County Commission has proposed setting aside $2 million in an upcoming bond. Gainesville officials said hope the remainder of the money will come from the state. Sanderson said he hopes Alachua and Marion counties would be able to send a grant application to the FDOT by January. Philip Mann, supervising engineer for the Gainesville Public Works Department, said the project would also include cameras at every major intersection. "We don't want to put in an $18 million system but not give it any eyes," Mann said. Officials hope to install cameras so they can fine-tune the timing of each signal to match traffic flow as it changes throughout the day.

4, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, AUGUST 3,2006 On a fin and a prayer Local fish raised for globe By CARMEN ROTONDO Alligator Contributing Writer HIGH SPRINGS -A genius roams the grassy lands off of Old Lake City Road. He tends to the needs of what started as an honorable intention over 30 years ago. The white-haired, gentle genius squints his eyes, shielding them from the bright and very warm morning sun and offers a hand. "Mike Sipe, owner of Tilapia Aquaculture," he says. "Welcome to my hatchery." The hatchery, a massive greenhouse-type structure that houses more than 30,000 tilapias, stands tall in the near distance. The roof is covered with thick construction plastic to keep the hungry birds out. Tilapias swim and circle the perimeters of the concrete tanks, waiting for the next free food handout. "C'mon in," Sipe says. "Let me show you how I feed my fish." Awhidte, gallon-size bucket full of brown pellets sits on the edge of the first tank. Sipe picks it up and slowly walks from tank to tank, scattering the feed. The tilapias swarm and feed like a vulture tears into a carcass -hungry and fighting the others for more than their fair share. Sipe's quest is to feed the world. Tilapia is the main entree. Sipe is a UF graduate with a bachelor's degree in agricultural extension and education, a degree that even he has difficulty in explaining, and a master's degree in biological insect control. "I had so many credit hours by the time I graduated that many of my professors joked that I was becoming a professional student," Sipe says. "My degree in agricultural extension and education is simply a title that was made up for me by Dr. G., my major professor who simply wanted to see me finally graduate." With such a wide range of college courses and numerous credit hour curriculums, Sipe is educated in genetics and reproduction. He learned that certain aquatic species, tilapias in particular, feed prominently on flies and larvae, which causes them to reproduce rapidly. It was with this concept that Sipe realized he had the opportunity to help feed the world. Sipe embraced this opportunity and dug a pond. After a donation of a few tilapias from a fish farmer in Arizona, the pond now houses aquatic life and marks the beginning of the importance Sipe places oi man generosity. As a husband and father of Sipe understands that it costs m to feed a family -never min monumental costs to feed a community or a poverty-stri country.

"My two Brazilian daughters bring me so much pride, immeasurable amounts of it. I strive to feed the world by means of fish farming.

"It was never about if I wanted to do it," Sipe says. "It's about strategy: How can I produce multiple amounts of a tasty, nutritious fish that can be shipped worldwide and be eaten by anyone -for survival or for taste itself? I researched it. A man of my intellectual caliber should not waste it on amateur experimenting. I should use my intelligence and understanding of science to feed and educate the less fortunate on the process of defining and widening the food chain." Sipe's quest is admirable. He strives to feed the world, one tilapia at a time. UF picks Gator as leader of biotechnology center By JU'LIA SAMUELS Alligator Contributing Writer UF has appointed a new director to oversee its Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research, and university officials say they couldn't have picked a better man for the job. Robert Ferl has spent years at UF and said he is looking forward to taking charge in his newest role. "The main thing will be working with the people at the center adjusting to the new building and incorporating the Cancer (and) Genetics Research Building," Ferl said. Ferl began his UF career in 1980 as an assistant botanist and has held numerous positions at the university since taking the job, from serving as a department chairman to taking charge of ICBR's DNA sequencing Laboratory in 1988. UF officials said his experience with the university made him a great candidate for his new position, as well as an enthusiastic one. The position will allow him to work with people he's already acquainted with. "I was very pleased when I found out about being appointed to the position," Ferl said. "I've known these people for decades, and to have a chance to work with them is a very positive thing." Months of delib.F eration narrowed U F .the choices down, Administration as notable researchers from across the world were considered for the job. When all was said and done, officials said Ferl's record with the university made him the candidate most worthy of the position. "He's known for his own outstanding dedication to research, but he's equally welladmired for his ability to work with others and coordinate efforts," said Win Phillips, UF's senior vice president for research, in a press release. Other officials said Ferl's work ethic made him a perfect choice for the job. "He knows what makes research work and what you have to do to get results. That's what the center needs to keep growing," said Curt Hannah, one of ICBR's co-founders, in the release.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 3, 2006 N ALLIGATOR, 5 Scientists uncover secret of lethal genetic illness 0 SUFFERERS HOPE STUDY RESULTS LEAD TO BETTER TREATMENTS. By JESSICA MAKRIS Alligator Contributing Writer UF researchers have robbed cystic fibrosisrelated diabetes of some of its mystery. A recent study suggests that cystic fibrosisrelated diabetes is caused by differences in beta-cell function, not solely by the destruction of the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas as previously thought. Cystic fibrosis is the nation's most common lethal hereditary disorder, affecting 30,000 Americans. Sixteen percent of people with cystic fibrosis also have diabetes. UF researchers gave mice with cystic fibrosis a low dose of a drug that impaired their ability to produce insulin, in order to examine the effects of diabetes on cystic fibrosis. "We gave a low dose of a drug that injures insulin-producing cells to mice without CF and, at the levels we gave it, it didn't affect blood sugars," said Dr. Michael Stalvey, a UF assistant professor of pediatrics who led the study. "The mice with CF were given the same dose, and it caused a condition very much resembling cystic fibrosis-related diabetes." Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease caused by an altered gene. It results in the faulty transport of salt into organs, such as the lungs and the pancreas, which leads to thick, sticky mucus that blocks the ducts in these organs and disrupts their normal function. In diabetic cystic fibrosis patients, the body still. produces small amounts of insulin at times, but it doesn't produce enough to keep blood sugar levels from skyrocketing with meals, according to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Patient Registry. Many people with cystic fibrosis have a cycle of lung infection and inflammation, which slowly damages the lungs and their ability to provide oxygen to the body. Diabetes in cystic fibrosis patients occurs as the patient ages. By 30 years old, a cystic fibrosis patient has a 50 percent chance of developing diabetes. "Age is the predominant issue with the development of CF-related diabetes. The odds of having diabetes become greater and greater each year older the patient gets," Stalvey said. The recommended age to begin screening for diabetes in cystic fibrosis patients is 14. Diabetes in cystic fibrosis patients commonly causes deterioration of overall health, Stalvey said. "With the nutritional issues of CF, if the diabetes is poorly controlled, the calories eaten won't be utilized and you're basically starving yourself," Stalvey said. "Diabetes makes the overall disease process harder to fight off. Overall lung function drops, weight drops and other complications arise." A cystic fibrosis patient's daily medical regiment usually includes aerosol treatments, chest physical therapy, pancreatic enzymes with every meal and snack and an assortment of other medications, depending on what complications the patient has, Stalvey said. Adding the daunting tasks of several insulin shots a day and multiple blood sugar checks further complicates a patient's treatment, Stalvey said. Recent research also suggested that women have a considerably harder time fighting the effects of cystic fibrosis when diabetes is diagnosed. Life expectancy with cystic fibrosis-related diabetes is reduced by two years for men and 16 years for women. "We really don't know why diabetes affects the life expectancy of women so much more than men," Stalvey said. "My theory is that it has to do with the anabolic process of testosterone, but it hasn't been studied enough yet to know for sure." "Age is the predominant issue with the development of CF-related diabetes. The odds of having diabetes become greater and greater each year older the patient gets." Michael Stalvey UF assistant professor of pediatrics Stalvey said about half of women with cystic fibrosis have dysfunctional menstrual cycles due to poor nutrition, weight loss and chronic disease, which causes the body to lower estrogen production. If a man's diabetes causes poor nutrition and weight loss, he can still produce testosterone. Despite the added problems that diabetes causes, some cystic fibrosis-related diabetes patients are tackling the overwhelming medical responsibilities of their health care to the best of their abilities. "It was very hard for me to start dealing with diabetes," said Nicole Ellis, a 21-year-old who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis-related diabetes a year ago. "I'm still getting the hang of it all, trying to remember to take my pills and check my blood sugar before I eat. I've never been very organized with the rest of my meds, but this takes it over the edge." Even though Ellis is adjusting to her newly acquired diabetes, she still manages to travel the world -she studied abroad in Mexico. Ellis said the worst part of having diabetes is just having one more thing to think about. "I try to stay really fit, but sometimes, I just don't have theenergy to go to the gym or do my best running because my sugar is-off balance," Ellis said. "Now on top of having to make sure I do all my treatments, school assignments and other responsibilities, I have to make sure I eat on time so my blood sugars willbe okay." Cystic fibrosis patient Tim Imus, 40, who lives with his wife and dog in Naples, has had diabetes for five years. He said he went through a transition period when he first started dealing with the disease. "I was pretty discouraged at first because it was just one more thing to add to my list," limus said. "Once I got the right doctor to help out and got the correct information on how to take care of myself, it all fell into place." inus said he is excited that UF has conducted research on cystic fibrosis-related diabetes. "I have beaten the odds of life expectancy, and, the more they study the disease, the better the future will be," Imus said. Stalvey said the next step in his animal research will be to learn about the complications that arise from diabetes in cystic fibrosis patients. "We know diabetes contributes to bone disease and the inflammatory process, but we don't know why or how," Stalvey said. "Using our new model, we can predict the impact on other processes affected by diabetes in CE Ultimately, we hope our mice will help us to test potential new therapies and perhaps, one day, a cure." aprtmed inl Vu nTn oaVo a to~ Voac 6c'e owet4e.46ft ap rt

6, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, AUGUST 3,2006 Editorial With the Summer session drawing to a close, we know plenty of students are feeling a little down. It won't be long until we're all back to the usual 15-credit-hour grind this Fall. But, depressing as that may be, there are still plenty of reasons to go on living. Just to prove it, this week we've decided to highlight the most uplifting recent news stories. So turn that frown upside down as we bring you yet another inspiring edition of our very own. Darts & Laurels Probably the biggest local news this week was the Tuesday opening of the newly remodeled Library West. Yes, you read that correctly. No more delays,no more inconveniences -the library is finally ready to use, and that's why we're delivering a so-maybe-three-years-and-$30-millionwere-worth-it-after-all LAUREL to UF. The official opening ceremony won't take place until late Fall, but that didn't stop a whole herd of Alligator staff from trotting down University Avenue to check out the new digs. And what a sight it is. Computer terminals are everywhere. Lounge chairs and enormous beanbag cushions abound. And the views of the Plaza of the Americas are outstanding. The overall effect isn't so much that of a typical library but of a place where students can go to hang out, catch up or just kill time -kind of like what the Hub or the Reitz Union were supposed to be. We were very impressed, to say the least. Also worthy of merit over the past week was the university's response to helping students sort through the ongoing conflict between Israel and Lebanon. We're bestowing a talking-things-out-rationally-is-usually-more-productive-than-screaming-at-each-other-inTurlington LAUREL to the Dean of Students Office for sponsoring the events. Todd Hasak-Lowy, assistant professor of Asian and African languages and expert on the Middle East crisis, facilitated student discussion at the first forum, which took place July 26. A second forum will be held tonight in Little Hall. It will led by Patricia Woods, an assistant professor of political science. Call us old-fashioned, but we think that forums like those, at which students can both express their feelings on the issue and listen to those of others, are some of the best means available for hashing out divisive political issues. We're glad to see the Dean of Students Office getting involved in something that could actually bring two disparate groups on campus just a little closer together. Finally, we'll close with a bit more good news as we deliver an all-bad-things-must-pass-in-time LAUREL to Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, who on Monday transferred power to his younger brother, Raul. Fidel stepped down after undergoing surgery for intestinal bleeding earlier that day, but claimed in a written statement that he planned on resuming power after a few weeks. We, of course, are hoping for the better. This is the beginning of the end for the elder Castro, and, after years of oppression for the Cuban people, regime change can't come soon enough. Of course, as White House Press Secretary Tony Snow noted, "The fact that you have an autocrat handing power off to his brother does not mark an end to autocracy." Certainly, Raul is nobody's idea of a liberal thinker. During the Cuban Revolution, he organized and ordered hundreds of political executions. But, Raul's former chief of staff, Alcibiades Hidalgo said, "You can argue with Raul. .You can't argue with Fidel." And even if Raul isn't the greatest guy in the world, the transition would leave the island nation one step closer to a free government. The transfer of power from one aging, hard-line revolutionary to another can't continue on forever. And that's something to be thankful for.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 3, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Article misrepresented RA's statements on homosexuality It would be a misfortune for the university to hire for any leadership position anyone 'as narrow-minded as I appeared to be in Tuesday's article regarding resident assistant training and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer issues. Julie McMahon mentioned the "red flag" that goes up concerning someone who isn't willing to learn about alternate points of view. I was hired as a resident .assistant (not an adviser) by the university's Department of Housing & Residence Education not because of some facade I put forth to trick people into hiring me, but because of my experience, my openmindedness, and my willingness to serve and to learn more about diversity issues, an aspect of life one absolutely cannot avoid when in any position of leadership. During training, the housing department does not demand that we forget our personal beliefs for the sake of professionalism; at the same time, however, we're urged not to force our beliefs on other people, so as not to be closed-minded or unfairly biased. As role models to those students that live on campus, we are called to be equally open to, available to, and educated about all types of people, regardless of race, religion, sexuality, gender and so forth, to make the students feel comfortable about coming to us with a concer they might otherwise keep to themselves, without knowing what to do about it. Housing would most definitely think twice before hiring the Gaellissa Francis you wrote about on Tuesday. I'm glad I'm not her. Yes, this Gaellissa is a Christian. Yes, I do believe homosexuality is a sin and that all sin is equal, but it would be clearly ignorant and irresponsible of me to say just that without explaining the concept of sin that I hold true: All sin is equal in the fact that God cannot be with any of it; light and darkness cannot reside in the same place without true repentance and consistent efforts toward salvation. What the Alligator failed to print is that all sin is not equal, in the fact that every type of sin affects us humans differently. For example, murder, cheating on taxes, laziness, arrogance and lust Gaellissa all affect people i varFrancis ous ways and are treatSpeaking,.Out ed differently among us; I would b%.the last to plainly say that an LGBTQ person who cones out to his or her family is just as wrong as a person killing his or her most loved ones, without further, more accurate explanation. How devastating would itbe to hear that from an RAlike me, especially if I'm talking to a person who is on the verge of coming out? Now, about one and a half years ago, I understood that my spiritual haughtiness was almost that of those who carry large signs on Turlington Plaza and unrightfully suppose to determine everyone's fate except their own. I thought that unacceptable, which is why I decided to deny myself and learn about people that had different views and lifestyles. I was humbled and appalled at my own ignorance, and I came to a conclusion that I shall never regret. Christians are called to do two things: love God always and love people always. We are never exempt from being accused of sin; I mess up every day, and I would be doomed if I didn't remember the cross every day. Therefore, I am in no place to consider myself better than or less sinful than anyone else. However, one of my duties is to share what I believe with those who don't know, not so that anyone feels condemned or inferior, but so that people can learn about and respect me as much as I want to learn about and respect them. I'm called to love my neighbor as myself, not because my neighbor is a sinner, but because I'm a sinner, too. I know that God loves all of His creation, no matter how much we tend to turn away from Him; if I, a person so undeserving of God's love, treat my neighbor as though God doesn't love him or her, I am undeniably in the wrong. Learning to lead and care about people the way I do now has made me into a much better person and has led me into multiple positions of leadership like the one I hold and appreciate today. Gaellissa Francis is a telecommunications senior. Letters to the Editor Kameg should've shown more concern for attack victim Editor: Gainesville Police spokesman Sgt. Keith Kameg was quoted in Tuesday's Alligator as saying, "It appears his intent was only to rape the suspect." It is my opinion that rape is a more serious offense than he allows it to be. Perhaps he meant that the intruder had no intention of killing the victim. He should have stated so but still not have used the term "only." A spokesman, especially for a police department, should use more direct and correct language. If he, in fact, does not consider rape a serious offense, perhaps a spokesman who better relates to the feelings of the community should replace him. Brigitte Silver 2PH Women are still victims of sexism despite gender gap Editor: I'm writing in response to the story in Tuesday's Alligator, "Gender gap widens at UF, universities nationwide," which tries to'examine why the majority of UF students are now women. Unfortunately, the story does not examine the power imbalance between men and women that still exists in our society. .Stories fretting about the dwindling number of male college students have swept the nation, yet virtually none of these stories stops to look at the fact that many women with bachelor's degrees make as much money as men with only high school diplomas. Women with master's degrees will make about as much money as men with only bachelor's, and so on. As Chad Smith pointed out in his story, men still dominate areas of study like engineering, which pay more. While women on the average have higher grades at UF, the majority of honors students are still men. Even college admittance is slanted in men's favor, relying heavily on standardized testing, where men do better. Sexism is a real factor in our lives as women. The higher number of women in college, and our tendency toward higher marks, can be explained by this imbalance: women have to work twice as hard to get as far as men -more if we want to get farther.

8, ALLIGATOR N THURSDAY, AUGUST 3,2006 Police: Mother of four run.over, killed by boyfriend SUSPECT TURNED HIMSELF IN AFTER DAYLONG POLICE SEARCH. By NANCY FISHGOLD Alligator Contributing Writer A man killed the mother of his three children by running her over with his car after a fight at a southwest Gainesville apartment early Tuesday Anthony Artell Little, 30, intentionally ran over his girlfriend, Carol Ann Stokes, who was eight weeks pregnant, said Sgt. Keith Faulk of the Alachua County Sheriff's Office. The confrontation began after Little went to Madison Cove Apartments, 5500 SW Archer Road, to confront Stokes about a relationship with another man, Faulk said. The couple began arguing and neighbors called police to break up the disturbance. David Reaves, 30, who was also at Stokes' apartment, got involved in the argument, and Little stabbed Reaves in the lower back, Faulk said. At that point, Reaves and Stokes fled. Meanwhile, Little damaged and vandalized Stokes' vehicle, Faulk said. "He took a big knife and punctured the tires," Faulk said. "Then he attempted more vandalism. He poured Coke or something in the engine." As he was leaving, Little saw Stokes and Reaves near the front of the apartment complex. Stokes saw Little and ran across Archer Road to escape. Little then took his 1972 Chevrolet Impala, backed it up and gunned it straight for Stokes, Faulk said. PU49 C "He struck her from behind, dragged her 40 feet and she rolled under the vehicle," Faulk said. Stokes died at the scene. Little then began making phone calls to family and friends admitting to what he had done, Faulk said. Although authorities were on the hunt for him all day Tuesday, Little turned himself in at the Alachua County Jail at 8:30 p.m. He was charged with first-degree murder in connection with his girlfriend's death. An autopsy confirmed that Stokes died of blunt trauma injuries sustained from being run over by Little's car. Reaves was treated for his stab wounds and then arrested as a result of an outstanding warrant. "It's tragic that this happened," Faulk said. "Now her children will grow up without a mom and definitely without a dad because he's going to be in jail for a long time." The investigation is still pending, but Faulk said Little may face several more charges. "He's looking at serious time," Faulk said. "Possibly worse."

UF student Nadir Mateen plays Quincy in the university's world premiere of "The Cornbread Man," a show that opened its first preview Wednesday night. "In a certain way, the title, 'The Cornbread Man,' means a lot. What does it take to make corn bread? A recipe, ingredients, a mixture. What does it take to make a soul?" said director Mikell Pinkney. The show follows Quincy and his biracial family as they struggle through questions of religion, alcoholism and the definition of a true family. Pinkney said he feels that like life, "The Cornbread Man" addresses many issues and no single .issue can be used to define the show, the actors or the audience that experiences it. "The University of Florida is a top research school. The scientists and engineers do their research. This is ours." Mikell Pinkney 'The Cornbread Man' director As the first batch of actors to perform the show, the cast of "The Cornbread Man" faced a set of exciting opportunities, including the chance to work with award-winning writer Judi Ann Mason. "It's good to see that when the writer comes to watch, we're not that far off from how she has imagined.the show," Mateen said. The six-person cast performs on a set that cost over $10,000, which is at least twice the usual cost of sets at -UT, Pinkney said. He added that he hopes "The Cornbread Man" will give UF the opportunity to serve as a test location for future commercial shows. ."The University of Florida is a top research school," he said. "The scientists and engineers do their research. This is ours." Audience response will play a very important role in the formation of the show, Finkney said. .There will be a 30-minute question-and-answer session after every performance, and the-writer will attend all five sessions to incorporate the reactions into rewrites of the script. Preview performances of "The Cornbread Man" will run from. tonight through Sunday, and the show will reopen Sept. 8 for audiences that will include commercial theater producers from New York and Los Angeles. .( to % I I IN "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" Classic Carwash ( flj GENERAL NUTRITION CENTERS -25% OFF any one GNC Product Cannt be corned Need coupon. ~ le 914 SWArcher Rd Ibiletalin -indo 'n og unavailable at Butler Plaza location 350 SW Archer d. 374-27leciu as 377-5520 Ex 5/0/ce Dental Mouthwash Research Study The University of Florida Periodontal Disease Research Clinic (PDRC) is seeking individuals for a research study to see how well a Dew investigational cosmetic mouthwash containing certain bacteria called probiotics works to cleanse your mouth & help promote healthier guns & teeth.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 3,2006 N ALLIGATOR, 11 Citrus leaves hold key nutrients By SHAMILA SIDDIQUI Alligator Contributing Writer A UF professor has discoveredan untapped resource in citrus leaves, but he's still searching for ways to put his knowledge to good use. UF professor Balasubramani Rathinasabapathi and his students found in three consecutive experiments that young citrus leaves are excellent sources for antioxidants, or nutrients that prevent disease, he said. "We have a product that used to be wasted, and now have uses for them," said Julia Fant, a UF student working on the research. In Fall 2002, Rathinasabapathi and former UP student Ufuk Koca began researching the leaves of oranges, grapefruits and pomelos. Their results were consistent over three growing seasons. Rathinasabapathi said he thought investigating the leaves was an obvious choice because in nature, leaves contain the most nutrients. Rathinasabapathi was unsure of what to do with his collected information, he said. He contacted the Florida Department of Citrus to find out if it would be willing to provide further funding for the research. The department rejected Rathinasabapathi's request, so he took it upon himself to find some uses for his research, he said. Fant, the undergraduate UF student working on the project, tried to use the leaves for tea. "It didn't taste good at all," Fant said. Additionally, the Food and Drug Administration must approve the use of leaves in tea to make sure the concoctions are nontoxic, Rathinasabapathi said. This would make that particular use of leaves difficult to approve. "We know people in other countries use leaves, like grape leaves, in their diet, so it may help prove the leaves are nontoxic," Fant said. Rathinasabapathi said he considered the antioxidants found in the leaves for possible sunscreen use, which he has not yet found a way to do. Antioxidants in sunscreen allow it to better protect skin, Rathinasabapathi said. The antioxidants in the leaves can also be used to make all-natural products, replacing chemically engineered antioxidants with natural ones, Fant said. There are six main antioxidants found in the leaves, Rathinasabapathi said, but flavonoids are the dominant ones. "We know people in other countries use leaves, like grape leaves, in their diet, so it may help prove the leaves are nontoxic." Julia Fant UF student The identification part of the research is not complete, Rathinasabapathi said. Fant works in the lab for about three to four hours a week, she said. She conducts some of the spectral scans for the experiment. "It has a lot of potential," Fant said. "It's figuring out where we can go with it." Rathinasabapathi said the novelty of using citrus leaves is what may catapult interest in the current research and may spur research in other plant leaves. Interest in the research may also increase as Rathinasabapathi learns more if its applicability in sun protection, he said. Rathinasabapathi will continue to conduct more research on the leaves with Fant, he said. There are more uses for antioxidants than sunscreen and tea. He said he hopes to continue uncovering new citrus properties. "As long as we can get a handle on the system, we can put them to use," Rathinasabapathi said. FSU %tudent p.1peV bought "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" Crowd mostly upbeat at long-awaited reopening of mai REACTION, from page 1 the library "just to marvel at how beautiful it is." The $30 million renovations on began in December 2003, and the building itself 'was completed in late May. Library West's reopening marks the return of a permanent home for UF's humanities and social sciences collections. "It's good to have an up-to-date library facility that is on par with those at other schools," Thomas said. Working their way up to the building's higher floors, visitors rode the elevators to the sixth floor, which will eventually be accessible only to graduate students. Those students will be able to swipe their Gator 1 Cards through a slot in the elevator to access the floor. Graduate student Andrea Wood said she was excited about the sixth floor, adding that the renovated library had much better technology, lighting and furniture than its older incarnation. But not everyone admired the new library. Though she had never been inside the library before it was renovated, Alexandra Leonces said she thought the new building was "too modern" and noisy. "It just doesn't feel comfortable to me, like a library should be," Leonces said. n UF library But Bill Covey, interim director of library support services, said he hadn't heard any complaints. "One young lady was just going from one staffer to the next, talking about how she was in such shock and such joy," Covey said. "She was really sorry she was graduating. She would love to spend another year here." Victory completes student quest CAM POUT, from page 1 and other people see that, then they will start to understand, your passion, and they too will be passionate," Schackne said. The enthusiasm needs to be brought back to libraries, Molina said. "After all, the written word is one of the biggest milestones to ever occur," Molina said. Schackne agreed. "We're just trying to put the 'fun' back in the fundamentals of reading," he said. Passionate and ready to read, the two UF seniors stuck their ground -the ground right outside the library's main entrance -and rested in their sleeping bags as they waited for their big moment to arrive. But like any great moment, it could not be reached without challenge. At 3 a.m., Schackne and Molina were awakened by the bright flashlight of one of four University Police officials standing in front of them. After. a brief explanation of their mission to the officers and an impressive rundown of the campus rules -which permit camping out as long as campers are not in an enclosed tent -the seniors dodged removal from the premises and continued their mission. "I think they recognized how serious we were about endeavors, and in the end they offered their support and best wishes," Schackne said. I Morning broke soon after, and before the guys knew it, a crowd of about 50 had formed behind them and the grand opening was minutes away. At 1 p.m., positioned in front of the silver revolving doors, Schackne and Molina roared with excitement as they entered Library West side by side. Cameras flashed simultaneously as library staff members and reporters took pictures of the duet's victory hug and dramatic collapse to the floor. They had made it. They were first. "It's all I imagined it to be and a little bit more," Molina said as he looked around. UF students Eric Schackne and Filup Molina play the game Guesstures at the tail end of their 14-hour stay outside Library West in hopes of being the first students inside.

12, ALLIGATOR M THURSDAY, AUGUST 3,2006 UF RESEARCH Pollution scars ocean floor By BRITTANY BOUFFARD Alligator Contributing Writer Near an underwater volcano, a team of geologists found something strange lurking amongst the eyeless shrimp and giant dams: pollution from thousands of miles away. The team, which included a UF geologist, discovered a foreign metal -lead -while studying deposits from an underwater volcano near Italy. The lead did not originate from underlying rocks or from any neighboring or European natural source. By examining the samples, the geologists found that the lead traveled around the globe from an Australian lead mine. "You expect the metals to come from underlying rocks, and then we realized that's not the case," said George Kamenov, a UF geologist who is part of the research team. "When you look around, there is no natural source for this lead. The only possible source is this Australian lead." Deep in the ocean, water seeps through cracks in the floor where magma heats the water until it bursts upward through hydrothermal geysers. Scientists study these areas because of their unique marine life and natural creation of metal ores. Therefore, finding lead was not unusual, Kamenov said, but the distance the substance traveled from Australia to the Marsili Seamount volcano in the Mediterranean, less than 200 miles off Italy's coast, is remarkable. This was the first observance of human influence found in such hydrothermal deposits. "I guess we can speculate that this is yet another piece of evidence of how widespread our disturbance in the environment is: the fact that we can influence natural hydrothermal systems," Kamenov said in a press release. "When you look around, there is no natural source for this lead. The only possible source is this Australian lead." George Kamenov UF geologist He said the lead was probably mined from one of the world's largest lead mines, located in New South Wales, Australia, and shipped to Europe, where it was used in fuel. Cars then burned the metal as part of gasoline and it released into the air, later settling to the ocean floor. This exemplifies the idea that no substance is ever truly lost in the environment, Kamenov said. The deposit samples were collected in the late 1980s, which was around the time when Europe's unleaded gasoline movement picked up speed, so cars still burned leaded fuel, Kamenov said. Researchers hope utilizing this isotopic tracing method will help find other pollution sources. %c%%*(w for? eri "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" a1 Gainesville mayor says yes to run for second term in '07 NO CANDIDATES HAVE YET FILED TO OPPOSE MAYOR. .By ADAM AMIR Alligator Contributing Writer Hoping to serve the city three more years, Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan has filed for reelection. Hanrahan, in her first term as mayor, submitted the paperwork July 26 to the Alachua County Supervisor of Elections Office, even though ballots will not be cast until early March 2007. Hanrahan said she would use another three years in office to help fight perennial issues such as roam towing. "I worked to increase requirements of tow companies," Hanrahan said, referring to recent changes adopted by the City Commission. "Things like accepting credit cards and giving change are long overdue." Area redevelopment ad the environment will also remain prominent issues on Hanrahan's agenda. "My own GainesvilleCity perspective COMMiSSIO. is that with a major research university like UP, the edge of campus and downtown should have better dining, shopping and more work opportunities," she said. Hanrahan, a Gainesville native and UF alumna, previously served six years on the commission before reaching the two-term limit. In the 2004 mayoral election, two Democrats ran against each other, but county Democrats say they hope no one chooses to oppose Hanrahan in the race. "We don't want another Democratic candidate running, because we already have an excellent one in office," said Evelyn Foxx, vice chairwoman of the Alachua County Democratic Executive Committee. "We want to focus all of our efforts on re-electing her." Representatives from the Alachua County Republican Executive Committee could not be reached by press time. Even as she faces no opponents so far and secured a 57 percent win during the last election, Hanrahan wants to stay realistic. "Politics aren't easy to predict," she said "But I certainly hope that I'll have the support of the public for the fourth time." Miami celebrates illness CUBA, from page 1 said Cuban exiles are celebrating the news of Castro's failing health. "People are rejoicing in the streets," Borge said. "In the middle of the day people are outside honking their horns and going crazy" McCoy said he thinks the celebration may be premature. "I think in Miami the assumption is the death of Fidel means the end of the regime," he said. "It's not so dear to me that's the case." Borge said many Miami Cubans are hoping that Raul's leadership fails, leading to a much more open government. He said some Cuban exiles would like to return home to a free Cuba. "My grandfather told me he'd like to return home and live in a free Cuba, even if it's only for a week," he said. His grandfather also told him he wants to be buried on Cuban soil. McCoy agreed that many Miami Cubans would return to visit and see relatives, but only under a much freer government. Miami Cubans are adamant in their disapproval of Castro's regime, McCoy added. He said the next few weeks will be important as more information about Fidel's condition and how a succession will take place becomes known.As for Cuban natives, McCoy said he thinks the situation is complex. Castro's government is the only one they know, and it has provided them with jobs, health care and education. He said many Cubans are unhappy with their situation, but are nervous about their future once their leader of four decades dies.

fthe V e n u e ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, AUGUST 3, 2006 www.alligator.org/avenue soun4s in the Festival offers weekend escape to Chicago By CRISTINA BARONE Avenue Staff Writer CHICAGO -Navigating public transportation isn't always easy. Take, for example, the Green Line of the El in Chicago. One end of the line is called Ashland, as is another stop about midway though the train's trek across the city. If you're new to the city -say, visiting from Gainesville for the Pitchfork Music Festival -this can be more than a little confusing. So you stand next to the tracks, staring intensely at the system map in an attempt to figure out exactly how to get to Union Park. Is it south or west? You're about 90 percent sure that it's west, and your educated guess is confirmed by the steady trickle of 20-somethings with oversized sunglasses that are coming up to the same platform as you. All of you pile into the train and-miraculously -get off at the correct Ashland stop, directly by Union Park. This all occurred this past weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, Chicago was host to the Pitchfork Music Festival, a two-day festival that featured 41 bands on three. stages. The festival's big names included the likes of The Walkmen, Spoon, Devendra Banhart, Silver Jews, The Futureheads, Diplo, Aesop Rock and Os Mutantes, a Brazilian band that recently reunited for the first time in about 30 years. Many UF students took this opportunity to ditch work or school and make the trip up to Chicago for the weekend. Charlie McNamara, 21, flew up to Chicago on Thursday and stayed there until Monday. "It's been awesome. It's so worth it," he said. McNamara said that his favorite act of Cristina Barone/Alligator Staff Philadelphia-based band Man Man performs on Saturday as part of last weekend's Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago's Union Park. the festival was Spoon. "Spoon's performance was a lot more affecting than the others. Art Brut was a great performing band, but Spoon was great musically. There wasn't a lot of showmanship, it was just great musically," he said. Highlights from lesser-known bands included Man Man, a band based in Philadelphia. On Saturday, they performed their unique brand of high-energy rock. Their music evokes images of a late night in New Orleans after way too much whiskey. Another highlight was Liars. V This three-piece began their career a few years ago with a sinister form of dance punk. They have since developed a challenging and mature sound, evidenced Sunday in their set that weighed heavily on tribal drumming. Avant-garde jazz, hip-hop and electronic music found a home at the Biz 3 tent. The Chicago Underground Duo and Matmos were two excellent acts that performed there on Saturday. "The guy from Matmos looked like he walked right out of mission control from the 1960s," McNamara said. Not only did students get the chance to see good music, they got the opportunity to escape from Gainesville to spend a weekend in one of America's most prominent cities, lovingly known as "The Second City," after New York, of course. However, McNamara disagrees with the notion that Chicago is a mere second best. "I think Chicago is the best American city," he said. "Unlike New York, Chicago is a lot more friendly, patient and manageable." The festival was organized by its namesake, www.pitchforkmedia.com. The Web site has quickly become one of' the largest and most popular music sites for music news, reviews and interviews. The site decided to use their newfound success to put together a festival with quality acts at a cheap price -two-day passes sold for a meager $30. Importantly, water bottles sold for only $1 each, a godsend in this weekend's Midwest heat wave. Good music at a cheap price attracted many visitors from inside and outside of Chicagoland (and yes, that is what Chicago's surrounding area is called). "If the Pitchfork Music Festival had been in England or Europe, it would Cristina Barone/Alligator Staff The Pitchfork Music Festival featured perfomances from 41 bands on three stages. have cost maybe $120," McNamara said. "Everything here isn't exorbitantly expensive. The water is no different than it would be at CVS." It was obvious in the way that the festival was put together that the organizers actually cared about those attending their creation. They continually stressed drinking a lot of water, applying sunscreen and taking breaks from the heat to sit in the shade. Despite the skyrocketing mercury, McNamara didn't let the heat bother him. "I think it's worth it if you're with your friends," he said. Another benefit of the management was the laid-back atmosphere that it created. Abbie Steinback, 21, was another UF student who attended the festival. "It's calm as opposed to other places I've been," she said. "It's not that the people aren't enjoying it. They're just chill." As crowds were waiting for the next band to play, there was no pushing to get to the front of the stage. There was no crowdsurfing. People wanted to be there simply to enjoy the music. Steinback thought that this festival was a good contrast from other more intense ones she attended that involved camping. "Sometimes it's nice to get a shower," she said. "it wasn't crazy crazy, but we didn't go out in the Ferrari to read scriptures."

16, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, AUGUST 3,2006 Playing 'hard to get' can send the wrong signal recently got the following reader letter: "I got out of a four-year relationship a year ago and have begun dating a new guy. The problem is that I seem to not be very good at playing the games you are apparently supposed to play in the beginning of ALL relationships. Sometimes I'm just not in the mood for games. The times that I have tried to skip the stupid games, it blows up in my face. Each time that I have invited him somewhere he turns me down, but he is always trying to make plans with me otherwise. I'm guessing it's too early to ask HIM on dates? Is this his way of keeping things slow and letting things happen on HIS terms? What rules should never be broken? And when can the rules be compromised?" Unfortunately, there isn't one answer to this question. The Rules, or, more accurately, "playing hard to get," are favored by old-fashioned girls (and their fathers) for their insistence that you should "never accept a date on Saturday if he asks after Wednesday," and Either way, don't let on that he's other such unnatural dicta. in control -when one person's The Rules do have some good playing by The Rules, the other points and can be helpful if you're rusty, but Maghan otherwise I find them irksome and I rarely have the patience for games, which sounds like how you're feeling.

Turn him down now and again, and date someone else so you aren't too focused on this dude, even if they aren't as interesting/handsome/ funny. There's nothing wrong with asking him out. If he has a problem with it, then forget him. Plenty of dudes would love it if you initiated things. Playing games can backfire; when I met my boyfriend, I intentionally didn't act too interested or available so that I would seem more appealing. He ended up thinking I wasn't that interested. But I fixed it. This guy probably knows you're interested, and I encourage him to get real before you get fed up. What do you think? Have a question? E-mail me at advice@alligator.org. Home workouts provide cheap alternative to gym keeping your body in shape can bend your wallet out of shape when gym membership fees and expensive health foods seem to weigh you down. But trading a beer belly for a healthy lifestyle shouldn't cut down your bank account. Why burn money to burn fat on a Bowflex when there are cheaper alternatives? Settle down, Chuck Norris -you can get a slimmer body for a slimmer sum. First, the obvious: Do push-ups and sit-ups at home, and walk, jog or run everywhere you can. A tank of gas doesn't exactly go as far as it used to, but it doesn't cost you a thing to slip into some sneakers and let your feet get you where you need to go. You can keep cool in the shade jogging pretty much anywhere on campus, and the Swamp can be the biggest StairMaster you've ever run if you're up for the challenge. To really build up those calf muscles, strap on some ankle weights while walking to class-you might have to spend a little cash Jenn on a pair, but you're saving time spent exercising. Second, as corny as it sounds, don't be dumb about dumbbells. You can make your own weights at home using items around the -house, such as soup cans, water bottles, milk jugs or tennis cans filled with sand, rocks, kitty litter or even spare change. Fill to the exact weight you want, and when you're ready for a heavier weight, you can just add to the-container. If the typical running-jogging-flexing-push-up exercise routine isn't your thing, try dancing. For $5 you can master Buenos-style Argentine Tango at Emerald's Lounge on Tuesday evenings or Pfaff learn Louisiana-style Zydeco at Fat Tuesday on Thursdays. Eating right is part of healthy living too, and it begins with shopping right. Sure, Ramen noodles and McDonald's burgers are cheap, but healthy meals can be just as inexpensive. Fresh fruits and vegetables are cheaper vwhen they're in season and make better snacks than potato chips. Chicken backs and necks are inexpensive, along with dry or canned peas, beans and lentils, which can last up to a year. Don't overstock on anything that can go bad quickly, and avoid battered fish and meats that come with sauces, flavorings or stuffings, which are more costly than plain meat or frozen fish. Compare prices, clip coupons, stick to store-brand names and don't buy packaged meals -you'll save money cooking from scratch. At home, freeze whatever foods you can, especially breads and bagels, to make them last longer and stay fresher. Cooking in bulks will also spread out meals for leftovers the next day. Count calories and the cash you can save -you and your bank account are going on a diet. Site helps discover music By ANDREW FRIED Avenue Contributing W Sean Hughes visits Pandora disc jockey, about every week. Hughes, a UF mechanical major, first found out about P months ago while trying to exj music collection. Pandora isn't a human bein ing Web site that has provide 2.5 million listeners with a uni MAN riter his personal engineering andora three and his rock g. It's a growd more than que system of discovering new music based They actually on the listener's preferences. And it has, become increasthat are in th ingly popular among college and have a s students. and don't ca "It's great because you can the ar take pretty much any song you like and find tons more Sean great stuff that you've never UF mechanical e heard of," Hughes said. To begin, a listener registers with the Web site and selects either a favorite artist or song. The site then creates a station based on the attributes of that listener's selection. Listeners hear entire songs and can click either 'thumbs up' or 'thumbs down' depending on their preferences. The site continuously plays songs that best represent. what the listener wants to hear. Unlike other Web sites that use a technique called collaborative filtering, a system that suggests people who like one song will like another, Pandora uses a different method, said Etienne Handman, chief operating officer of Pandora Media. "We have musicians who listen to every single song that plays on Pandora," said Handman. "And they measure and write down into a computer actually the measurements that they take of all these different characteristics of music that we've identified." Pandora uses the Music Genome Project, an analysis of each song by musicologists in its 500,000-song database based on more than 400 attributes. The genome includes straightforward traits like tempo to more obscure characteristics like mode and how much bravado the lead singer has in his or her voice, Handman said. Mathematical techniques are also applied to measure distances between songs based on similarities. -"Songs can be near each other in space and we have an engine that can figure out how far apart things are and can find nearby neighbors," Handman said. "And that's how match songs Pandora selects the group of songs that it will use to make e same genre the station." imi/ar sound Handman said Pandora re about who uses several different methods tist is. to add music to its database, which grows from 12,000 lughes songs to 15,000 songs each ngineering major month. "Our goal is to have all the good music," he said. "Good means it has an audience. Somebody will appreciate it. It doesn't mean you like it. It means somebody does." Pandora employs a curator to find music from Web sites, blogs, Billboard charts, College Music Joumal and retail stores. Pandora's listeners can e-mail the site to suggest artists, and independent musicians and labels can submit music directly. If a listener searches for an artist that Pandora doesn't have in its database, that information gets logged. Handman said when enough people search for it, someone will research it and add it to the site. Pandora's co-founder, Tim Westergren, goes on the road looking for potential music and audiences and explains to people the site's mission and how it works, Handman said. The site also relies on word of mouth. "We're not reaching out to anybody in particular," Handman said. "We put every kind of music we can lay our hands on into the music genome. And we let people who come listen to what they like." C a I e n d a r Florida Museum of Natural History and Samual P. Ham Museum of Art, Museum Nights: Both museums will be open late.

They've traveled thousands of miles across North America, stuffing their faces with some of the worst food money can buy. Through the fire and brimstone of seemingly endless stretches of tree-lined highways, they've gained a better understanding of the heart of America and themselves. "The best part of the tour was being able to see half of the country through the eyes of people who actually live in the states we visited, not just tourist stops and highways," said front man Todd Portnowitz. "We met folks who'd invite us to their homes and feed us, give us a place to sleep." But for every blessing the group received, a jolt to their systems was just around the bend. The worst part of the tour was the economic struggle. "I hate saying, 'We have shirts and CDs back there, anything will help us pay for gas,'" Portnowitz explained. "You feel like you're running an infomercial or something. But then again, you need the money to get to the next show." red, blue and green, before driving across The humiliation of pitching sales to fans for Canada to Michigan," Portnowitz recalled. food and gas money wasn't the only due the In between shows and having their breath indie folk collective was forced to pay on their snatched by the splendor their eyes witnessed, arduous, exhilarating journey. the financially strapped group crammed the "We came across this guy in Jackson, only food they could afford into their stomMiss.," said guitarist Nick /t's kind of hard to do wel/ achs.

"Those shows were the most fun because "We saw Niagara Falls at night, all lit up the people were into us the most," Bo said. "The people were outstanding andfun to hang out with." For Clock Hands Strangle, the worst stop was in New York City. The parking was a nightmare, the venue was subpar, and the crowd was less than receptive. "It's kind of hard to do well when you're a folk act and you're following a metal band," Portnowitz said. Through the ups and downs, the bvllhas yearned Gainesville's friendly confines. "I'm excited to get home and take a break," Bo said. He lives in Melbourne, but plans to unwind a bit in Gainesville. The group expects this homecoming to be the climax of their arduous experience. "I'm excited to play Common Grounds," Cristian said. "Our tour has kind of been a countdown to that show." Portnowitz studied in Rome for more than a month prior to embarking on his musical/ spiritual exodus across North America. For him, Gainesville symbolizes the long-awaited conclusion of a marathon. "I haven't been home in over 11 weeks," he said. "Not sleeping on a floor will be nice. Gainesville is always a good time, and the show at Common Grounds should be just that."

18, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, AUGUST 3,2006 ON CAMPUS Aspiring novelist writes in union, invites inquiries INCENT M. MASSARO Avenue Contributing Writer At a round table in a dimly lit corner of the Reitz Union Food Court sits a man with two of his most valuable possessions: a Tositls laptop and an expression of calm determination. Scattered about his -work space are dense philosophy texts, a digital wristwatch and two book bags. But what grabs the attention of unsuspecting passersby is a warm, inviting smile and a sign that reads, "I'm writing a novel. If you'd like, please come talk to marrin riaiemamien/Migatar UF student Chris Lane uses the ambient noise at the Reitz Union to focus on writing his novel. me about it." Chris Lane, a 22-year-old Japanese major at UF, has been writing the novel "Standing in the Shadow of a Guilty Man" with his friend Patrick Prugh since last summer. Since the start of Summer A, Lane has been in the union weekday afternoons adding to the more than 200 pages already written. "The noise keeps me awake," he said, projecting his words over the rumble of busy voices. "I have to stay here to stay sharp." Last year, the authors took time off school and worked 13hour days in Prugh's parents' house. With his co-author in Massachusetts for the summer, Lane said he found himself falling asleep in their home office and decided to move work into the union. After a week into the semester, he got the idea to put his story on display. "It's boring and lonely not to share your ideas," he said, adding that he loves to get feedback from potential readers. Visitors Lane describes the novel as "sci-fi, fantasy fiction" or "speculative" when curious union-goers stop by to chat, and he gives them a brief synopsis of the plot -a synopsis he says he's become adept at telling. "I'm innocent; I'm a woman," one Preview parent quipped about the "Guilty Man" title. "A lot of Preview parents have some wit to share as they walk by," Lane said, chuckling behind his beard. Some days are busier than others, according to Lane, who recalled a few days when about 15 people stopped by to talk. Francisco Callejas, a 1996 UF graduate in journalism, met Lane in the union July 2. Callejas, 37, said in a telephone interview that students in their 20s are typically concerned with' parties and their own cliques, not writing novels. "It's refreshing to find a college student doing something that will stand the test of time," he said. "I just wish him success with it." Jose Hernandez was finishing a Preview session when he and a friend happened upon Lane in the union. When they saw the sign, their "freshman curiosity" was aroused, and they went to talk to Lane, Hernandez wrote in an e-mail. "To tell you the truth, I liked it very much," he wrote. Working Together The idea for the story started several years ago when the two authors were in high school. -Prugh originally wrote it as a screenplay and bounced ideas off-Lane. They later 'tried to convert it into a novel but had not dedicated all their time to it until last year: The authors said they drew from movies, TV and video games for inspiration. At 220 manuscript pages, the book is about 80 percent done, according to Lane. Manuscript pages are the size of printer paper, and they hold more content than pages in a novel do. Their self-imposed deadline was tentatively set for August, before classes start, but Lane said they will probably need more time. Prugh, 22 years old, is majoring in digital media studies at U. In a telephone interview, he said that although most of the year was spent writing, a lot of time was spent learning how to write. He said story flow is one of the most important things in successfully working together. "We didn't just write a book," he said. "We developed a process for writing." Lane brings logic to the project and pays painstaking attention to detail, explained Prugh, who credits himself with the big-picture approach. Though Prugh is. working 96-hour weeks this summer to finance the upcoming school year, he still manages. to spend time revamping the novel's early chapters. Among other odd jobs, he works for an electrician and gives tours of an 18th-century windmill in Nantucket, Mass. Prugh said that he and Lane are going back to school in Fall, as planned, even though people told them the year off was a big risk. Now is the time to for them to take risks, he said, because they are young. "It was painful to sit in school and hear them say that one day you'll get your break," he said. "School should never get in the way of your career." As for getting their work to bookstores, Prugh said they have a plan but won't focus on it until the book is finished. "We call this success even if we don't get published," Prugh said. Lane, however, remarked in an earlier interview, "The goal is to get published."

30, ALLIGATOR S THURSDAY, AUGUST 3, 2006 Orioles sign UF third baseman ALLIGATOR SERVICES Thw UF baseball team's offense is taking blow after blow -one professional contract at a time. The Gators' most recent loss is infielder David Cash, who signed Gators infielder David Cash State on May 20. with the Baltimore Orioles on Monday and will forego his senior season. He was a 40th-round pick (1,195th selection) by the Orioles in June's MLB Amateur Draft. "We are very happy for David to be able to continue his career in the professional ranks," UF coach Pat swings during a game against Louisiana McMahon said. "We are appreciative of his efforts for our program during his time at Florida as& all and wish him the best." In his first season after transferring from Chipola Junior College, the infielder compiled the second-highest team batting average witn a .298 clip; Cash hit .320 in Southeastern Conference play. He started 38 games at third, scored 22 runs, totaled 16 RBI, tallied six doubles, collected two triples and belted one homer. Cash marks the fourth impact player the Gators have lost to professional teams this summer. Infielder Adam Davis signed with Cleveland while catcher Brian Jeroloman signed with Toronto and outfielder Gavin Dickey inked a deal with Seattle. UF continues to wait and see if slugger Matt LaPorta will follow in their footsteps. LaPorta fell to the 14th round of the 2006 draft (Boston) one season after leading all NCAA Division I schools in home runs. LaPorta missed much of the 2006 season because of an oblique injury. Cash is also leading records this summer, topping the Cape Cod League in batting average after hitting .291 (30 for 103) for the Bourne Braves in 26 games. Selected as an outfield starter for the Western Division in last Saturday's All-Star Game, he was tied for the club lead with 14 runs while compiling 6 RBI and four doubles. Since the West squad was running out of available arms, Cash also pitched one inning during the All-Star Game. Cash played high school ball in Odessa and spent one year at South Carolina. The Orioles also selected him in the 21st round of the 2003 draft out of high school.

Spurrier hopes for improved facilities SPURRIER, from page 32 Spurrier said. He also wants a renewed commitment to infect the fan base. South Carolina lacks a modern academic advising facility, and its locker room and training areas don't bring the word "plush" to mind. So the school has embarked on a $100 million campaign, according to The State, to spur the necessary booster donations. Still, while the program has not yet merited SEC championship talk, all roads seem to point upward. "He brought the attitude that we can play, that we can win here at South Carolina," Gamecocks cornerback Fred Bennett said. "That's one of the things he always says: 'We can win here at South Carolina.' By him just saying that, he got the players to believe that we can win, and we can play against the best." The Gamecocks will have to clear their share of hurdles in 2006. They lost nearly their entire Spurrier offensive line and must replace cornerback Jonathan Joseph and safety Ko Simpson, who left for the NFL. Their recruiting class was decent, but fell short of the standard set by SEC teams like UF, Georgia and the like. Speaking of UF, Spurrier will experience what might be the most bizarre moment of the college football season: running into The Swamp in Gainesville draped in garnet and black. And who would the coach be if he declined to take a preliminary veiled shot at his alma mater? Discussing UF quarterback Chris Leak and his place in Urban Meyer's spread offense, Spurrier remarked: "I don't know if they're going to ask him to run with it a lot. But he's a beautiful passer of the ball, no doubt about it." F sNL YO CAs PP IFRSFRS

THURSDAY, AUGUST 3,2006 K ALLIGATOR, 31 Tennessee looks to recover from 2005 disaster COACHES TO ENFORCE ZERO-TOLERANCE POLICY. By LOUIS ANASTASIS Alligator Staff Writer lanastasis@alligator.org HOOVER, Ala. -Perhaps Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer hit rock bottom when his wife called him "spoiled." Or maybe it was when she kicked him out of the house. On Christmas, no less. "We were leaving or packing or whatever, and [Victoria] said, 'You got to get the heck out of this house. You're driving us crazy,'" Fulmer recalled. That's the kind of year 2005 was for Fulmer. The Volunteers (5-6) suffered a losing season and missed a bowl for the first time since 1988. Why? Quarterbacks Erik Ainge and Rick Clausen engaged in a game of virtual tag for the starting spot. A slew of starters suffered injuries, including tailback Gerald Riggs' season-ending ankle ailment. And complacency. set in at a program grown accustomed to winning. "You can say [players lost focus last year]," senior defensive. tackle Justin Harrell said. "There were times when guys were pretty much looking at the future than at the team. We can't have that. Football is a team sport, and that's one of the main focuses of the. seniors. We want to let everyone know that no player is greater than everybody else, and we have to put egos aside." To move along, the coaches held a team meeting at the end of the season and enacted a zerotolerance policy. The Volunteers would later amp -up spring practices, start wearing similar clothes and now partake in more team. activities. "It's like a complete turnaround," Harrell said. OLE MISS OPTIMISTIC ABOUT SCHAEFFER: The Brent Schaeffer saga is coming to an end. Maybe. Schaeffer, a dynamic quarterback who played at the College of the Sequoias last season before announcing he was transferring to Mississippi, hopes to complete summer coursework today before being able to join the team. "Our guys are anticipating Brent coming and welcoming him to the football team," Mississippi coach Ed Orgeron said. "We really are prepared to make him feel at home with our football team, to teach him the way we do things -at an accelerated pace, obviously." Schaeffer initially started taking correspondence courses to gain admission. Orgeron, however, convinced him to finish his schoolwork at the College of the Andrea Morales/ Alligator Staff Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer answers questions July 27 during the Southeastern Conference Football Media Days in Hoover, Ala. Sequoias in California. Should he pass the necessary courses, Schaeffer could still have to wait several days to be certified by the NCAA Clearinghouse. Mississippi starts practice Saturday. Are the players antsy about if he will ever arrive? "I'm sure everybody is wondering that; even y'all are wondering if he's coming or not," tight end Robert Lane said. SPURRIER ZINGERS: Though not quite in his brashy mode of the '90s, South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier can still work the English language. On whether a 12-game schedule is too demanding: "I watch girls' basketball, and they'll play four straight nights at the Southeastern Conference Tournament. I don't hear them bitching and moaning that they're playing too much." On how to ward off agents: "As long as [players] are driving their old, beat-up cars, we're OK." On whether his offense compares to those he had at UF: "No, not quite; not quite right now." Gators excel at tourney ALLIGATOR SERVICES IRVINE, Calif. -Gators sophomore Stephanie Cota turned in the best finish for a UF swimmer on day one of the 2006 Conoco-Phillips USA Swimming National Championships when she placed fifth in the women's 400-meter freestyle with a time of 4 minutes, 14.07 seconds. With a pair of top-10 finishes between them, juniors Tobias Work and Dustin McLarty provided the highlights for the 18 UF men's swimmers. Work began the evening session with a seventh-place finish in the men's 400 free with a time of 3:52.49. That time placed Work sixth in school history in the event after his preliminary time of 3:52.39 vaulted him to third. Cota's preliminary time of 4:13.51 in the women's 400 free was good for fifth all-time at UP. She also recorded a prelim time of 1:00.70 in the women's 100 butterfly to tie her for fourth in the-UF record book, and went on to finish 16th in the event with a time of 1:01.35. McLarty earned a ninth-place finish in the men's 400 individual medley (4:23.63). Incoming freshman Clark Burckle placed 12th with a time of 4: 24.93, while junior Kevin Nead turned in a time of 4:27.66 to finish 15th. VOLLEYBALL WINS ACADEMIC AWARD: The UF volleyball team was given the Game Plan/American Volleyball Coaches Association Team Academic Award for the 2005-06 school year. The award, initiated in the 1992-93 academic'year, honors college and high school teams that display excellence in the classroom by maintaining at least a 3.30 cumulative team GPA on a 4.0 scale and a 4.10 cumulative team GPA on a 5.0 scale during the school year. The Gators were the only team within the Southeastern Conference to be honored. HORSCHEL TIED FOR FIFTH: UF sophomore Billy Horschel shot an even-par 70 at the 104th Western Amateur at Point O'Woods Golf and Country Club, putting him in a five-way tie for ninth place at the end of the first day. "Billy hasn't played much this summer, so he's just starting to get comfortable out on the course," said Gators head coach Buddy Alexander. "The Western is grueling competition, but he can continue to be successful if he remains in the present. Billy just needs to be Billy." Incoming freshman Tyson Alexander finished the day with a 2-over 72, and junior Manuel Villegas shot a 6-over 76. 1,%fl,, %%CI "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" nW I )" III I I .0 () H

THURSDAY, AUGUST 3,2006 Spurrier still rebuilding ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org PLAYERS AND FANS HAVE BEEN SLOW TO ADAPT TO HIS STANDARDS. .By LOUIS ANASTASIS Alligator Staff Writer lanastasis@alIigator.org HOOVER, Ala. -It is one year into this newest phase, and Steve Spurrier hasn't lost his sense of humor. "Our trophy case has an Outback Trophy in it, and that's the biggest one," he said. It is one year into a project that would have made Michelangelo's David seem like a finger-painting task, and Spurrier hasn't lost touch with reality. "We got nowhere to go but up," Spurrier said. .And in this, his second summer at the helm of South Carolina football, Spurrier, most importantly, has not lost his edge, his confidence. -"We can tell recruits, 'You have a chance to come here and do something that's never been done before in the history of the school,"' Spurrier said. "'If you go to Florida, Tennessee, Alabama, Auburn -they've already won [Southeastern Conference titles]. You can come here and do it the first time ever."' Unfortunately for this 61-year-old, the source of his motivation is also the fountain spring for his headache: The Gamecocks have never been good for an extended stretch of time. So despite the fact that South Carolina won a surprising seven games in Spurrier's first season -including head turners against Tennessee and former love UF this is an uphill battle. It is a fight to change the culture of South Carolina mediocrity. "Our commitment level throughout the entire team is not good enough. .We have about five to seven guys that don't understand what it takes to be a winner." Steve Spurrier South Carolina coach Where to start? How about dedication. Spurrier is still not certain there is enough on his team. After all, when more than a handful of your players skip voluntary summer workouts, some attitude adjustment must follow. "Our commitment level throughout the entire team is not good enough. .We have about five to seven guys that don't understand what it takes to be a winner," SEE SPURRIER, PAGE 30 Andrea Morales/ Alligator Staff South Carolina football coach Steve Spurrier takes questions from the media on July 27 in Hoover, Ala., at the Southeastern Conference Media Days. FOOTBALL Gators' practice full of subp ots By LOUIS ANASTASIS Alligator Staff writer lanastasis@aIigator.org To say UF coach Urban Meyer is giddy about fall practice would be putting it lightly. "I can't tell you how much I can't wait to get into that hotel with those players and spend time with them," he said. "Some people dislike training camp. I'm a head football coach that loves training camp because I live with them. That's the greatest time of the year." The Gators commence fall practice Sunday as the 2006 off-season winds down. Beginning Sunday, players will reside in a local Holiday Inn for the duration of fall practice. Some storylines for fans and observers to keep in mind during practice: FRESHMAN SPOTLIGHT: Freshmen will comprise 26 of the Gators' 85 allotted scholarships. Among those expected to contribute are Percy Harvin (wide receiver), Brandon Spikes (linebacker), Carl Johnson and Maurice Hurt (offensive linemen) along with Wondy Pierre-Louis, Jacques Rickerson and Markihe Anderson (cornerbacks). UP FOR GRABS: While Meyer has already named former safety Reggie Nelson a starter at cornerback, there is no telling how this position will shape up as the season nears. Reggie Lewis, Nick Brooks and the freshman triumvirate will all battle for playing time. Then there's Ryan Smith, the Nelson Utah cornerback who could transfer at any time. THE MON WILLIAMS SHOW: Everybody has assumed the starting tailback will be DeShawn Wynn, Kestahn Moore or Markus Manson. But a certain prolific runner from Texas by the name of Mon Williams has something to say about that. The 6-foot-2 back has 4.4-second 40-yard dash speed. CALDWELL AND MCDONALD RETURN: Wide receiver Andre Caldwell, and defensive tackle Ray McDonald will be full-speed as soon as that practice horn blows. HARVIN'S NEED FOR SPEED: Percy Harvin will show everyone whether he is worth the hype -and perhaps a starting job behind Dallas Baker and Caldwell. HARRIS WATCH: Starting defensive tackle Steven Harris still has not rejoined the team, according to Meyer's last public word. The Gators are deep on the line, but losing Harris would be a huge blow.
