GPD cracks down


on underage drinking


Harrison Diamond / Alligator
Gainesville Police officers arrest an unidentified man for using a fake ID behind a bar on First Avenue on
Wednesday night. Officers are cracking down on fake IDs and underage drinking in Midtown bars.


By KATIE EMMETS

kemmets@alligator.org

The Gainesville Police
Department is warning underage
drinkers that there will be no more
warnings.
Starting this week and lasting
through the spring semester, offi-
cers will be increasing their efforts
against underage drinking. Those
caught will be arrested without
exception.
"Even though you want it to be
legal, it's not," said GPD spokes-
man Lt. Keith Kameg. "It's our job
to enforce the laws, and we will."
As part of the increased ef-
forts, GPD officers will be patrol-
ling midtown the area along
University Avenue near campus
- and downtown in greater num-
bers at night. They also will be
walking through bars and clubs,


asking anyone who looks young
to show identification.
While working to reduce
underage drinking has always
been a GPD priority, Kameg said
the department is putting more
resources toward addressing the
problem in the wake of GPD Lt.
Corey Dahlem's April 2007 death.
"Even though you want it
to be legal, it's not. It's our
job to enforce the laws,
and we will."
Lt. Keith Kameg
GPD spokesman

Dahlem was killed by a drunk-
en driver on University Avenue
during the celebration of the 2007
national championship victory by
the UF men's basketball team.

UF cancer hospital reaches construction milestone


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

As the final beam of the Shands at UF
Cancer Hospital ascended into the air with
the help of a powerful crane, the hopes of
those searching for a cure lifted a little, too.
A topping-out ceremony was held at the
hospital's construction site on Southwest


Archer Road at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, com-
memorating the final pour of the building's
highest level of concrete.
The $388 million, 500,000-square-foot
construction project is two months ahead
of schedule, aiming for completion in
September 2009, said Terry Bolden, senior
superintendent of Skanska USA Building
Inc, the construction company in charge of
the project.


After listening to a few congratulatory
speeches, hospital employees, supporters
and workers squinted through the sun's
glow and paid respect to a
U F- large American flag attached
Projects to the rising beam while the
national anthem blasted
from speakers nearby.
Tim Goldfarb, chief executive officer of
Shands HealthCare, thanked donors, ar-


chitects and construction workers for their
investment in the center.
"Like all great things of value, we build
with our hands, our heads and our heart,"
Goldfarb said.
Despite achieving the milestone, he said
he anticipates the day when the hospital
will open its door to those seeking lifesaving

Smoke, fog cause 70-vehicle pileup; 4 die
POLKCITY (AP) -About 70 vehicles crashed Wednesday
on a highway blanketed by fog and smoke from a brush fire
in central Florida, and local officials said four people were
killed and 38 were injured in the fiery wrecks.
A stretch of nearly 15 miles of Interstate 4 between
Tampa and Orlando was dosed by several accidents, in-
cluding the 70-vehicle pileup. Aerial footage showed the
mix of fog and smoke covering the landscape for miles.
The poor visibility hampered rescue efforts, forcing officials
to walk along the closed stretch of 1-4 checking individual
vehicles for injuries, a Florida Highway Patrol trooper said.

ELECTIONS 2008


UF Republicans, Democrats content with Clinton win


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org


Following Tuesday's New Hampshire
presidential primaries, UF student groups
supporting both the .Democrats and the
Republicans expressed satisfaction with the
Democratic winner but for different reasons.
Ben Grove, chairman of UF College
Republicans and a political science senior,
said his group would love to see Sen. Hillary
Clinton, D-N.Y, as the Democratic nominee in
the general election.
"In terms of rallying our base, there is
nothing more of a driving factor than having


another Clinton on the ballot," Grove said.
Clinton won with 39 percent of the vote,
and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., won the
Republican primary with 37 percent. Both
candidates finished third in the Iowa caucus
es on Jan. 6.
Grove said McCain's victory, which was
fueled by independents, proved the Arizona
senator is a viable candidate to be the next
president. In New Hampshire, independents
can choose whether to cast ballots in the
Democratic or Republican primary.
He also emphasized that the lack of a
dear front-runper for the Republicans makes
Florida's primary even more important.
"I think Florida being the big state, being


the be-end-all for some candidates, other states
will look at Florida and make their decision,"
Grove said. There are no active UF student
organizations representing
McCain.
The UF College
Democrats congratulated
Clinton for her victory in a
news release.
And the student group
backing Clinton was obvi-
ously also excited.
McCain Becca Guerra, co-chair-
woman of the Clinton-backing student group
Gators for Hillary, and a UF master's student
in political campaigning, said her group


wasn't surprised.
"We knew she could do it," Guerra said.
"We faced a lot of criticism this week, but
we felt that the campaign really just stayed
on key."
Clinton's campaign was able to .turn her
defeat in Iowa into momentum, Guerra said.
She said her organization thinks Clinton's
"misty moment," when the senator shed a
few tears during a Monday speech in New
Hampshire, showed voters her personal side
and helped her win.
"It's not going to be an easy race, but I think
that Hillary has a good chance," Guerra said.
"She proved herself in New Hampshire, and I
think she'll give it her best."


Plans for East Gainesville factor in endorsements


* LOCAL BLACK LEADERS
ALSO STRESS EDUCATION.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Contributing Writer

A group of local black lead-
ers and organizations made
endorsements Monday night for
the upcoming Gainesville City
Commission elections.
The African American
Accountability Alliance chose
to endorse Thomas Hawkins Jr.


for District 2 At-Large, Bryan
Harman for District 2 and City
Commissioner Jack Donovan for
District 3.
Members of the group made
their decisions based on votes
from the public forum and a small-
er panel meeting.
Alliance members primarily
asked candidates about their plans
for East Gainesville.
Former UF Student Senate
President Robert Agrusa, who is
campaigning for a seat as a District
2 At-Large commissioner, stressed


the importance of safety in East
Gainesville.
More neighborhood-watch pro-
grams are needed in order to hold
each neighborhood accountable,
Agrusa said.
Local LaurenPoe,whois
News running for a District
2 Commission seat,
said he went on a
ride-along with a Gainesville po-
lice officer and saw places in East
Gainesville that he thinks should
be "condemned."
"I've seen -the potential, the


possibilities that the community
has to offer, but I've also seen the
consequences if we choose to do
nothing," Poe said.
Education was also a major is-
sue brought up by the Alliance.
"If Johnny can't read and
Johnny can't graduate, then
Johnny isn't going to be a produc-
tive citizen," said Ed Jennings, a
former state representative and
a co-chairman on the Alliance's
executive board. "All our hearts
should bleed for that."
Agrusa said more vocational


schools should be offered in East
Gainesville.
"They encourage at-risk chil-
dren to go through programs that
stress success in a particular field,"
Agrusa said.
Candidates were also asked
how they would permanently
implement black history in public
schools.
Poe, who taught American his-
tory at Fort Clarke Middle School,
said every day, week and month
should demonstrate the impor-
tance of black history.

Library considers


extended hours
The Student Government program that extended Library
West's operating hours during final exams could become a
finals-week fixture if UF's library administration is satisfied
with the results.
The program extended the library's dosing hour to 4 a.m.
from Dec. 1 to Dec. 13. During that time, about 36 percent more
students used Library West than during normal operating
hours, according to data from the library.
Kevin Reilly, Student Senate president, will meet with Judith
Russell, dean of university libraries, within a few
0n weeks to decide if the extension was successful
Campus enough to continue.
If they decide to keep the program, Reilly said
they'd discuss how to improve it and possibly
expand the later dosing time to other libraries on campus.
"The more options we have the better," he said.
Reilly said he would like to eventually keep the library open
24 hours a day during final exams.
"People need to study, and for better or worse people are
pulling all-nighters," Reilly said. I" think having a place on
campus where people, can do that is tremendously impor-
tant."
The library is regularly open until 1 a.m. from Sunday to
Thursday, 10 p.m. on Friday and 6 p.m. on Saturday.

the sake of their own popularity.

they will be getting our undivided
attention," he said.

Brad Pollitt, vice president of facilities develop-
ment for Shands, said the building would include
family areas in patient rooms for overnight stays and
192 private rooms for patients, he said.
Additions such as a chapel, a meditation garden

Theatre Strike Force ready to battle for belly laughs


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org
Get ready to rumble.
Theatre Strike Force, a UF
student group of improvisational
comedians, will host its annual
improv showdown,. dubbed
"Rumble in the Swamp," at 8 p.m.
tonight. -
And to promote the event,
members were their usual show-
stealing selves on Wednesday.
A pie-eating contest on
Turlington Plaza Wednesday
afternoon promoted the show in
outrageous TSF fashion.
'Erik Voss, TSF treasurer and
UF sophomore, chose to inhale
his pie rather than eat it, causing
him to dramatically spit it out and
startle passersby.
"I got it all up my nose, and
now everywhere I smell smells
like lemon meringue pie," Voss
said. "I just wanted to have fun
with it and get the word out
there."
Voss' pie-eating antics are the
first of many spur-of-the-moment
performances visitors can expect
from him and about 30 others
during the shows.
He has also helped the troupe
write a few sketch-comedy acts.


"The process of writing and
coming up with scripted material
is something new and exciting,"
Voss said.
The troupe will divide into
Team Orange and Team Blue
before battling it out at Constans
Theatre for the chance to earn
bragging rights and a coveted
improv championship belt.
Brooks Heatherly, TSF presi-
dent and UF theater and telecom-
munication junior, said the troupe
has been preparing for the show
since November.
The group passed out fliers,
wrote chalk messages on campus
sidewalks and made a video to
promote the event.
"It's a chance for us to really
showcase who we are and what
we do," Heatherly said.
The shows will be performed
in a style similar to MTV's show
"Wild 'N Out," but Voss said
this version is more structured
because a referee will be there to
blow his whistle, throw flags and
penalize players for breaking the
rules.
The group will perform other
short improv games similar to
the ones played on the TV show
"Whose Line Is It Anyway?"
Audience members will shout
suggestions toward the stage


before each scene. The group an- getting to the theater by 7:30 p.m.,
ticipates about 400 people at each as they almost always have a full
performance and recommended house.


There are two more opportu-
nities to catch the "Rumble" on
Friday and Saturday nights at 8.

"Writing columns for The Alligator was a piece
of cake. We had Nixon in the White House, and
each day provided a wonderful new atrocity. It
was a splendid opportunity for a columnist to

Recycled Idea

Reuse cities' plans

to reduce waste
Homeowners looking to reduce their energy consump-
tion can take advantage of the rebates Gainesville
Regional Utilities offers for solar water heaters.
Commuters looking for a way to conserve fuel can use the
new Web-based Alachua County carpool program. These
are just a few of the latest ways Gainesville residents can go
green. And it's our guess, judging by the growing number
of Toyota Priuses driving around town along with UF's
growing commitment to sustainability that this trend is
one that's here to stay. However, local government may be
overlooking one of the most fundamental ways to protect the
environment: recycling.
The City of Gainesville's mandatory recycling ordinance,
first enacted in 1997, requires all businesses within city limits
to separate designated recyclable materials and establish a
recycling program. But for the roughly 23,000 apartment
units around town, the city has only mandated that newspa-
pers and metal cans be recycled. Why stop there?
Much larger cities like Pittsburgh, San Diego and Seattle
have successfully made recycling mandatory. In 2006, Seattle

bage geek" or an "environmental angel," we think it's time
Gainesville stepped up to the plate and made recycling man-
datory for all apartment complexes.




Underage, under arrest


T he popular joke that
you turn 21 years
'T old when you move
to Gainesville is something
many UF students have
taken literally at some point
or another. Whether it's let-
ting your friend buy you a
drink and sneak it to you
in a crowded bar or, more
boldly, ordering a drink
while cleverly making sure
your wristbanded-less arms
don't show, it's an all-too-
common practice. But that
doesn't make it legal.
We're not going to sit here
and pretend that we haven't
attempted the above actions,
but we will say that now it's
just not worth the incredible
risk they require.
Sure, getting away with
something you're not sup-
posed to be doing in public
may give you a little thrill
- if you're into that sort


of thing. And yes, you
shouldn't be restricted from
buying a beer when you can
legally fight for your coun-
try in war. But, it is what it
is. You will be arrested, and
you will have to make that
phone call home that no one
wants to make.
Since the Gainesville
Police Department is beef-
ing up patrols at local bars,
it seems ridiculous to even
try to pull a fast one at The
Swamp Restaurant. We can't
reasonably expect local law
enforcement to ignore the
dangers of an out-of-control
drinking scene, which was
tragically illustrated with
the death of GPD Lt. Corey
Dahlem last April.
So, we say, if you really
must have your booze, just
be responsible and stay
home. Or better yet, host a
party.

Letters to the Editor
Running Huckabee column irresponsible
In reference to the Mike Huckabee column
published in Tuesday's Alligator, I would like
to commend the editorial staff on their incred-
ible and unbiased coverage of the upcoming
presidential election. It is understandable
that sometimes the editorial staff can become
exhausted by their bashing of the Republican
Party, and, inevitably, you have to look to the
U-Wire to fill the opinions page with left-
wing propaganda.
In my three years as a reader, I have not
seen anything resembling responsible report-
ing or balanced political coverage.
The Huckabee column was de-
void of anything constructive.
I don't like Huckabee, but you can't possibly
trick us into believing that you will print an


equally bad article about Hillary
John Edwards.

Clinton the real candidate for change
While Barack Obama can certainly de-


liver an inspirational speech about change,
this does not make him the most qualified
candidate to deliver it. For the past 35 years,
Hillary Clinton has worked to advance the
interests of women, children and working-

House, Clinton took on the Republican at-
tack machine that derailed John Kerry's 2004

If you want a Democratic nominee who
talks about change but lacks a coherent plan
to implement it, vote for Barack Obama.
Now America knows that the candidate

DAVID LOW I AVENUE WRITER.

"Hey, nice pants, faggot!"
My heart froze. There were oth-
ers around, but I knew the ignorant,
hateful and untrue words were
directed at me.
Turning, I saw four men, each
with beer in hand, sitting on the
back of a parked truck. After more
jabs at my sexuality, I couldn't help
but wonder why my skinny jeans
had caused the whole ordeal.
The genesis
It was in second grade when
I got my first CD, and from that
point on, music was my life. Soon I
began playing guitar, often standing
in front of a mirror to emulate the
rock stars I saw on TV and in photo-
graphs. Of course, something didn't
look quite right.
But in 1999, while wrapped up in
heavy metal from the '80s, I decided
I wanted to look like the titans of
thrash I so admired. I wanted to
change my style for music
It's a social thing
"Since the early 1900s, music


has been a driving force in fash-
ion," said Matthew Turner, owner
of Wolfgang Clothing Boutique at
1127 W University Ave. "It's been a
huge factor, not necessarily in high
fashion, but in what's going on on
the street."
Wolfgang's not your gen-
eral dother, but that was part
of Turner's intention.
While the store doesn't
cater to one specific audi-
ence, groups whose styles
are steeped in hip-hop and
indie rock music will likely
enjoy the clothes, he said.
Turner, who graduated, from the
University of North Florida with a
bachelor's degree in psychology and
a minor in music history, said many
people are affected and changed by
music because they want to express
themselves as part of a culture.
While fashions and the music as-
sociated with them can help people
of similar styles and points of view
connect, being different and making
a statement with dothes can also
prove to be alienating. -
Lauren Ciaccia says she dresses


Rock the Look


Different music affects personal style


like a "weirdo." The UF journalism
junior says people often assume that
she listens to weird music because of
the way she dresses.
But Ciaccia, who has been a fash-
ion intern with the Denise Williams
Showroom and Streeters NYC, who

how we get by stereotyping
other people.
MatthewTurner
owner of Wolfgang Clothing Boutique

supplied clothing for indie music
groups like Bright Eyes and Rilo
Kiley, doesn't feel that music has a
lot to do with the way people dress.
"I think it did a lot more in the
past," she said. "When I think of
different eras, like '90s grunge, '70s
glam rock, '70s punk, '60s hippie,
etcetera, it was the music of the time
that was literally fueling different
movements in fashion."
But she said that another move-
ment is also happening now, with
"the whole indie, hipster scene."
Turner agrees, but said hip-hop


and street wear, with their unlikely
color combinations and unusual
prints, are probably the largest
movements today in music and
fashion's symbiotic relationship.
"Hip-hop culture is stronger than
ever, because it has become incorpo-
rated in our day-to-day lives," he
said. "Hip-hop will probably never
die."
Turner also said that
music of the different eras
all had importance at the
time they emerged, but like
everything else, died only
to be revived later, sans-
statement.
The first time a style that
accompanies music comes along,
there is meaning behind it. But
usually, when the style is back, the
meaning has changed, he said.
"With punk, it meant they were
rebelling and not down with the
current state of affairs," he said.
"But now if someone is 'punk,' it's
pretty much someone saying, 'yeah,
I know how to rock this look.' There
are always exceptions, though."
Turner doesn't like to label
people solely on choice of clothes.
In fact he hates labels, but accepts
that it's what people do. '


'"Juno' delivers warmth despite indie pandering


DANNY DJELJOSEVIC I AVENUE WRITER
"Juno" is "Little Miss Sunshine" for 2007: a cute comedy
with "indie" sensibilities that has won the hearts of both
critics and audiences alike. The main difference between
the two, however, is that "Juno" is actually good.
Ellen Page stars as Juno, a spunky teen who finds her-
self pregnant thanks to her friend Paulie (Michael Cera
of "Superbad" and, more importantly, TV's "Arrested
Development").
Realizing her inability to raise another human being, she
decides to put it up for adoption and finds a pair of young
suburbanites (Jennifer Garner and Cera's "Arrested" co-star
Jason Bateman) who seem genuine and caring enough.
From there, Juno attempts to reconcile her relationship


with Paulie as the marriage between her unborn child's
adoptive parents falls apart.
Films like this depend on their scripts, and "Juno" sports
a strong one by newcomer Diablo Cody.
a Despite the subject matter, 'Juno' never re-
ally gives in to the schmaltz that threatened
to undermine even a comedic avalanche like
'Knocked Up.' )
Despite the subject matter, "Juno" never really gives in to
the schmaltz that threatened to undermine even a comedic
avalanche like "Knocked Up." What appears onscreen is
sarcastically funny, yet warm.
At times, the film tries to pander to the indie crowd, but
unlike the typical quirky comedy, Cody imbues the charac-


ters with humanity rather than just stylized weirdness.
Director Jason Reitman keeps the script's indulgences
in check. In the wrong hands, "Juno" could have been sub-
"Napoleon Dynamite" fare, but Reitman's direction gives
the film a sense of verisimilitude despite all the more styl-
ized elements working against it.
The soundtrack, however, depicts the essential problem
in the film of indie sensibilities being forced upon it.
It features not only the appropriately awkward, folky
music of The Moldy Peaches, but also indie mainstays like
Belle & Sebastian and Sonic Youth. These are all acceptable
as Juno could conceivably listen to them (and does listen to
some of them), but the use of music by iconic acts like The
Kinks and The Velvet Underground give the impression
that Wes Anderson should sue somebody.

"Everyone is different, but that's
how we get by stereotyping other
people," he said. "If you see some-
one wearing skinnyjeans with a slim
build, you're automatically going to
think 'oh, he's an indie kid.' If you
,see a guy with looser jeans and a hat
turned to the side, you assume he's
into hip-hop and if you see someone
wearing khakis and a Lacoste shirt,
he has to be a prep."
While Ciaccia concurs, she be-
lieves there may be a kernel of truth
in jumping to conclusions about
someone's personality.
"It's bad to judge people based
on how they dress," she said, "but
most of the time you're probably
going to be right."
Mission accomplished
I'd almost made it out of the
parking garage when the scuffling
sounded behind me. My fears of
harm were relieved when saw only
one guy stumbling toward me.
"What, do you think you're

forth.

* Want to hook up with a bud? Think again


* Over drinks the other day, my girlfriend
said something puzzling: "I like to sleep
with my friends because I know them, but
* why do they always end up falling for me
when I specifically tell them this isn't any-
thing more than sex?"
Her assertion got me thinking that I
S have a slew of friends with exactly the op-
posite problem they think bedding their
bud will produce their happily ever after.
But do "friends-with-benefits" ever end
up working? Isn't someone going to end
up hurt? Doesn't the friendship become
strained and awkward?
The temptation for falling into the sce-


nario is relatively self-explanatory: nookie
without the needy, canoodling without the
commitment, but safety and security from
the sex. Like socialism, it seems brilliantly
workable on paper. Reality check. It's not.
A 2006 Michigan State University study
found 60 percent of college students sur-
veyed had or currently have a "FWB," but
also that the situation usually brought more
stress than satisfaction.
Maybe someone wonders why they
they wouldn't be a good couple if they were

onmt/&aL enua


good as friends in the sack. Hurt feelings
and disappointed expectations ensue and
onward the awkward scenario unfolds.
More of a numbers person? The same
Michigan State survey also found that
only 10 percent of FWBs ever turn into real
romantic bliss. Further, a fourth of those
surveyed lost their friendship entirely.
Perhaps my former friend-with-benefit
status binds me to such skepticism. I once
attempted to turn my bud into my beu. I
failed miserably and I have the journal en-
tries to prove it. ,
4


But I'd like to
believe that I'm now
wise enough now to
see that the situation
never ends up the
way it's entered into light-heartedly.
Nine times out of 10 these situations fail
to produce amore. More threatening, you
have the potential of losing a person who
you considered a trusting enough friend
that you let them see you naked.
Sure, the allure of friendly casual sex is
omnipresent in us all, but sometimes keep-
ing our raging hormones in check is a great-
er sign of maturity and self-assuredness.

Television

Viewers have alternatives during strike


ANA MONTANO I AVENUE WRITER
With the Writers Guild of America strike
still in full swing, TV viewers are starting
to feel the. effects. Yeah, we've gotten by
in the past few weeks with the holidays to
distract us, but now that they're over we're
left itching for a fix. So while we wait for a
resolution to the strike, here are some fun
alternatives for all you TV lovers:
1. Catch up on all the shows you've
been meaning to watch but haven't had
the time.
So you've got a list of shows you've
been dying to get into, but for whatever
reason, you haven't been able to watch.
Well, now is your chance, so borrow your
friend's sets of "24" and "The Office." No
commercials, no breaks and you get to
watch at your own pace. It's like an online


lecture except you want to watch it.
2. Watch shows that have already ended
and are available on DVD.
Get yourself a present with all the gift
cards you racked up
over the holidays
and enjoy any of ^( No comr
the newly (or previ- breaks an
ously) defunct shows
like "Seinfeld" and watch at your own
"Alias." And if you an online lecture
didn't have premium want to watch
cable, now is your
chance to watch "The
Sopranos" or "Six
Feet Under" and know what everyone was -
talking about seven years ago.
3. Rewatch your favorite TV shows.
If you're like me, you can watch your
favorite shows over and over. So rent or


buy your favorite show, sit back, relax
and remember why you fell in love with
"Friends" in the first place.
4. Replace TV time with movie time.
Hit up your local video
rental place or sign up for
nercials, no Netflix instead of channel
d you get to surfing your night away.
Set a goal. Try to watch
pace. It's like IMDB.com's top 250 mov-
except you ies. It's a great way to see
it. some of the good ones
you might not have come
across otherwise.
5. Turn off the TV.
Go outside. We live in Florida. There's
no ice, sleet or snow and you have reso-
lutions to keep, right? No? Want to stay
inside with "Rock of Love" and a tub of ice
cream? Cool.


Sve rh e a rd ,o 8 Have you ever accidentally (or purposely) eavesdropped
and overheard something so ridiculous that you had to laugh and then-
tell all your friends later? Well now you can share it with the rest of us!

Lupe cool on


new album

ADRIAN RUHI ) AVENUE WRITER
Lupe Fiasco may have established himself
as a skateboarding geek on his debut, "Food
& Liquor," but on his brooding sophomore
.set, "The Cool," he shows why he is one of the
most clever storytellers in music.
The pseudo-concept album continues the
tale of Michael Young History, a fictional char-
acter that debuted on Lupe's first album.
Songs like "Streets on Fire," "Put You On
. Game" and the horror-film-worthy "The
Coolest" personify abstract concepts like "the
streets," "the game" and "the cool" in order
to explain and criticize some of hip-hop's
most popular cliches. This is most evident
on the stripped-down, synth-heavy "Dumb
It Down," a satirical mocking of modem hip-
hop's lyrical deterioration.
Outside of the overall album concept, in-
dividual songs deal with their own distinct
issues. On "Gotta Eat," Lupe raps from the
perspective of a fast food meal trying to kill its
unknowing consumer, while "Little Weapon,"
brilliantly produced by Fall Out Boy frontman,
Patrick Stump, is a militaristic take on child
soldiers and the effect of violent video games
on kids.
While "The Cool" takes pride in its fresh
ideas, some of the best moments come from
its most simple songs. The nostalgic love song
"Paris, Tokyo" is reminiscent of vintageATribe
Called Quest, while the orchestral "Superstar"
is a reminder of how current hip-hop can still
make a listener feel good.

UF picks up


RB prospect


By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org
UF added another name to its 2008 recruiting
cass with the verbal commitment of Groveland
South Lake High running back Jeff Demps.
The 5-foot-8,180-pounder made his decision on
ESPNU Wednesday, and his 4.35-second 40-yard
dash speed should fit in well in the Gators' offense.
Recruiting services have described Demps as both
a receiver and running back, and Scout.com rates
him as a four-star prospect.
"1 just think for the spread offense that Florida
runs, he's an ideal player," Scout.com recruiting
analyst Mike Bakas said. "He's explosive, talented
and fast enough that they'll find him a position.
Whether it's in the return game, slot receiver or
running back, he's the kind of kid you want to
bring in and find a position later for him."
Demps rushed for 4,727 yards and 58 touch-
downs in his prep career.
"I think he's a lot like (current UF freshman)
Chris Rainey," Bakas said. "They're both 1,500-
yard rushers, explosive in the return game and
some of the fastest players in the state of Florida."
Verbal commitments are non-binding until Feb. 6.


one of the toughest schedules in the nation.
UF has two fewer meets than last year with
only 10 competitions, but seven of the meets are
against teams ranked in the preseason top 25.
Faehn thinks the shortened season will be ben-
eficial because her team will be in better shape
for the postseason and not tire out as it did after
12 meets in 2007.
"Because our season was so long, at nationals
they were a little tired," Faehn said. "[The short-
er schedule] will help keep our athletes fresher
not only heading into the postseason, but, also,
it gives them a little bit of hunger."
One meet UF is looking forward to is its
matchup with Georgia on Jan. 18 in Gainesville.
The Bulldogs are the preseason No. 1 and
three-time defending national champions, and
the prospect of defeating a rival en route to ac-
complishing a lifelong dream is an exciting idea
for Sinclair.
"I would feel as if I could cure cancer."

interesting. He appears to be getting a
sweeter deal in Knoxville, Tenn., as he'll
get to coach a team who commits to a
more traditional running game, and I'm
sure he'll be better compensated as well.
But there has got to be unease among
the UF coaches and players when one of
their own leaves to take the same posi-
tion at a rival school. I have to wonder if
UF's trip to Knoxville in September will
be a particularly friendly reunion.


Time will tell whether this will prove
to be a major coup for the Volunteers or
if they simply lifted a dead weight off
the Gators' shoulders.
If you're looking for an early indica-
tion, score round one to the Gators.
They may not have anyone to coach
him yet, but the Gators added running
back Jeff Demps to its 2008 recruiting
class Wednesday. Demps chose UF over
Tennessee.

UF WOMEN'S TENNIS


No. 4 UF looks to shake off rust in Vegas tune-up


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

Before they begin their dual-
match season next week, the UF
women's tennis team will have one
more tournament-style tune-up
starting Thursday.
Four members of the team will
travel to Las Vegas to play in the
National Collegiate Classic, which
lasts until Sunday.
Senior Lolita Frangulyan and
sophomores Megan Alexander,
Anastasia Revzina and Csilla
Borsanyi will try to regain their
feel for match play in time for the
upcoming season.


UF coach Roland Thomqvist
said his players may be a little rusty
but are physically strong with each
coming off a break of two months
or longer.
"It's an excellent time for us to
play some really good competition,"
he said. "This tournament tradi-
tionally is tougher than the NCAA
tournament."
The Gators are ranked No. 4 in
the ITA preseason poll after advanc-
ing to the quarterfinals of the NCAA
tournament last year.
Despite the high team ranking,
the Gators don't have any indi-
viduals ranked higher than No. 37
(Alexander), probably due to the
team's lack of play during the fall.


"I hope that's a motivating factor
to our athletes," Thomrnqvist said.
Part of the reason for the minimal
play was because of nagging injuries
that have affected several players.
"This tournament tradition-
ally is tougher than the
NCAA tournament."
Roland Thornqvist
UF coach

"The fall was not that good for
us," Thomqvist said. "We did not
use the fall as much as we could."
Now, everyone is healthy and
there are seven eligible players
with the addition of freshman Julia


Cohen, who Thornqvist said could
help the team right away.
UF also has two ranked doubles
teams, but they will mix up the
rotations at this tournament, pair-
ing Alexander with Borsanyi
and Revzina with Frangulyan.
Thomqvist said he did not know
which of the seven players will play
on the three doubles teams this sea-
son but hopes this tournament will
give him an idea.
He added that getting off to a fast
start this season is important for the
team because it sets the tone for the

Gators confident entering conference play in Kentucky


* UF WILL TRY FOR ITS
EIGHTH STRAIGHT WIN.

Another chance to surpass ex-
pectations.
That's why forward Marshae
Dotson'and the Gators can't wait to
start Southeastern Conference play
Thursday at Kentucky.
Dotson, originally from
Columbus, Ohio, expects to have


a few family members and friends
make the 160-mile journey to
Lexington, Ky.
While Dotson looks forward to
that, she also can't wait to start prov-
ing the doubters wrong.
The Gators come into the con-
ference opener on a seven-game
winning streak, although the media
preseason poll picked UF to finish
11th of 12 in the SEC. The Wildcats
were slated to finish sixth. Dotson
doesn't mind the disrespect.
"I like when they do stuff like
that," Dotson said. "It's more moti-
vation for us."


Assistant coach Susie Gardner
said turnovers and rebounding
will be major keys to success.
Ballhandling has
eluded UF at
times this sea-
son, although
Gardner has
been surprised
at the recent turn-
around.
The Gators
Gardner have committed
20 or more turnovers seven times
this season but had just 14 at Temple
on Saturday.


"We were turning the ball over
like 28 times a game, and now those
numbers have decreased," Gardner
said. "At the same time, the level
of defensive pressure is going to
intensify."
Sophomore point guard Lonnika
Thompson said the team has worked
hard to prepare for additional press-
es and quicker opponents.
"We've been doing pretty good,"
Thompson said. "It's time to just
step our game up a little more be-
cause it's SEC now."
Another part of this season's
turnaround has been the team's


domination of the boards. UF has
outrebounded its opponents in 12
of 15 games, including three double-
digit margins in the last four games.
"We're a very good rebounding
team, but going into conference play
we're about to hit a different level of
athlete, a different level of size in the
post," Gardner said.
The momentum gained from a
seven-game winning streak won't
hurt, though.
"I don't think the team could be
any more confident going into SEC
play then we are right now," she
said.

Ingram reverses field, will stay at UF

* CONTRARY TO REPORTS, THE TIGHT END
WILL NOT ENTER THE NFL DRAFT.

By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

It looks like Gators tight end Cornelius Ingram will
hold on to his orange-and-blue jersey for one more
season.
Ingram decided Wednesday afternoon to hold off
on the NFL Draft and stay for his senior year at UF,
Ingram's brother Greg Bowie said.
Ingram and teammate Derrick Harvey filed paper-
work with the NFL to gauge their draft stock in early
December. Harvey has already declared he will forgo
his senior year.
The NFL's advisory committee projected Ingram as
a third-round pick, but Bowie said his brother's deci-
sion was not solely influenced by his projection in the
draft.
"He knew he could have gone to the combine
and been an early. second-rounder," Bowie said. "But.
there were two things he wanted to do -- put on
some pounds, you know, grow stronger, and get his
degree."
Yahoo Sports reported last Thursday that Ingram
was entering the draft and quoted him as saying, "It
was just my time."
But Bowie said Ingram had been weighing the deci-
sion carefully since the Capital One Bowl on Jan. 1, in
which he tied his season low for receptions with one
catch for 17 yards. He had even stopped answering his
phone for a few days so he could clear his head.
"Playing in the NFL is a goal that he's had since
coming to Florida," Bowie said. "That's why he came
to Florida. He had a good opportunity to play at the
next level but he's staying for one more year."
Ingri finished fourth on the team with 34 recep- casey Brooke Lawson / Alligator
tions for 508 yards and seven touchdowns this season. UF tight end Cornelius Ingram, who tied for the team lead in touch-
Bowie said Ingram is about six credit hours away from downs this season, will return for his senior year.

Gators may have to survive without coach


By BOBBY CALLOVI

bcallovi@alligator.org

Despite the uncertainty of Coach
Rhonda-Faehn's future, the UF gymnas-
tics team is prepared to make a run at a
national championship.
Faehn had a baby boy on Tuesday night,
and although she plans to be back coach-
-ing the Gators soon, there is still a chance
she won't be for some time. If Faehn takes
a leave of absence, the team is ready to
move along without many changes.
"We have prepared ourselves ever
since we found out she was pregnant,"
co-captain Melanie Sinclair said. "We're
going to go out there and do our thing.
We're not going to change a thing."


Assistant coach Adrian Burde will run
the team until Faehn returns.
With or without its coach, the team
hopes to improve upon its third-place fin-
ish at April's NCAA Championships.
"We're going to go out there and
do our thing. We're not going to
change a thing."
Melanie Sinclair
UF co-captain

The result wasn't exactly the finish the
Gators hoped for considering that many
regarded them as favorites to win it all.
"Well, it was a little disappointing,"
Sinclair said. "There were a lot of people
thinking we had it, knowing we were No.


1 all season."
With five All-Americans returning -
Sinclair, Corey Hartung, Amanda Castillo,
Ashley Reed and Tiffany Murry the
Gators are ranked second in the nation
by the GymInfo preseason coaches' poll.
Those five are surrounded by four other
experienced competitors from last year's
team and two new freshmen Lynn
Denblyden and Alicia Goodwin who
are expected to contribute.
The Gators also added Maranda
Smith, a redshirt sophomore transfer from
UCLA.
Even with all their talent, the Gators
won't have an easy road to the national

Departure of

Drayton fails

to surprise

or a couple of months now, there
has been a lot of buzz about UF
assistant coaches possibly leaving
town, but I never thought Stan Drayton
would be the first to go.
Drayton, formerly the Gators' run-
ning backs coach before bolting this
week to fill the same position with the.
Tennessee Volunteers, was arguably
the least heralded of UF's position
coaches. To say that the Gators' run-
ning backs have failed to impress dur-
ing Drayton's tenure would be a huge
understatement.
Not surprisingly, Drayton was also
the lowest paid UF position coach by a
fairly decent margin.
In fairness
to Drayton,
the Gators'
personnel at
running back
has been called
Bryan Jones into question
Bryan Jones since Urban
Bryan Out Loud Meyer took
bjones@alligator.org the reins of
the program in
2005, and it's difficult to discern how
much of UF's problems at tailback can
be attributed to players and how much
can be credited to coaching.
It's interesting to note that Drayton
was the running backs coach at
Mississippi State in 2004 when Jerious
Norwood ran former UF coach Ron
Zook out of Gainesville with a 174-
yard rushing performance in the
Bulldogs' infamous 38-31 upset win
against the Gators.
From a purely speculative stand-
point, though, I think Drayton was
on the hot seat anyway. With former
Pacific-10 Freshman of the Year
Emmanuel Moody set to take over at
tailback next season and Mon Williams
likely returning from injury, expecta-
tions for UF's running game should
skyrocket. Another disappointing
performance out of the unit may have
spelled the end of Drayton's tenure' at
UF, anyway.
But where the Gators will take a hit
from Drayton leaving is in the recruit-
ing race. Drayton was one of UF's

GPD cracks down on underage drinking Harrison Diamond / Alligator Gainesville Police officers arrest an unidentified man for using a fake ID behind a bar on First Avenue on Wednesday night. Officers are cracking down on fake IDs and underage drinking in Midtown bars. By KATIE EMMETS Alligator Writer kemmets@alligator.org The Gainesville Police Department is warning underage drinkers that there will be no more warmngs. Starting this week and lasting through the spring semester, officers will be increasing their efforts against underage drinking. Those caught will be arrested without exception. "Even though you want it to be legal, it's not," said GPD spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg. "It's our job to enforce the laws, and we will." As part of the increased efforts, GPD officers will be patrolling midtown -the area along University Avenue near campus -and downtown in greater numbers at night. They also will be walking through bars and clubs, asking anyone who looks young to show identification. While working to reduce underage drinking has always been a GPD priority, Kameg said the department is putting more resources toward addressing the problem in the wake of GPD Lt.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 2008 .ALLIGATOR, 3 ELECTIONS 2008 UF Republicans, Democrats content with Clinton win By DEBORAH SWERDLOW Alligator Writer dswerdlow@aI igator.org Following Tuesday's New Hampshire presidential primaries, UF student groups supporting both the Democrats and the Republicans expressed satisfaction with the Democratic winner -but for different reasons. Ben Grove, chairman of UF College Republicans and a political science senior, said his group would love to see Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY., as the Democratic nominee in the general election. "In terms of rallying our base, there is nothing more of a driving factor than having another Clinton on the ballot," Grove said. Clinton won with 39 percent of the vote, and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., won the Republican primary with 37 percent. Both candidates finished third in the Iowa caucus es on Jan. 6. Grove said McCain's victory, which was fueled by independents, proved the Arizona senator is a viable candidate to be the next president. In New Hampshire, independents can choose whether to cast ballots in the Democratic or Republican primary. He also emphasized that the lack of a dear front-runner for the Republicans makes Florida's primary even more important. "I think Florida being the big state, being the be-end-all for some candidates, other states will look at Florida and make their decision," Grove said. There are no active UF student organizations representing McCain. The UF College Democrats congratulated Clinton for her victory in a news release. And the student group backing Clinton was -obviously -also excited. McCain Becca Guerra, co-chairwoman of the Clinton-backing student group Gators for Hillary and a UF master's student in political campaigning, said her group wasn't surprised. "We knew she could do it," Guerra said. "We faced a lot of criticism this week, but we felt that the campaign really just stayed on key" Clinton's campaign was able to .turn her defeat in Iowa into momentum, Guerra said. She said her organization thinks Clinton's "misty moment," when the senator shed a few tears during a Monday speech in New Hampshire, showed voters her personal side and helped her win. "It's not going to be an easy race, but I think that Hillary has a good chance," Guerra said. "She proved herself in New Hampshire, and I think she'll give it her best." Plans for East Gainesville factor in endorsements 0 LOCAL BLACK LEADERS ALSO STRESS EDUCATION. By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Contributing Writer A group of local black leaders and organizations made endorsements Monday night for the upcoming Gainesville City Commission elections. The African American Accountability Alliance chose to endorse Thomas Hawkins Jr. for District 2 At-Large, Bryan Harman for District 2 and City Commissioner Jack Donovan for District 3. Members of the group made their decisions based on votes from the public forum and a smaller panel meeting. Alliance members primarily asked candidates about their plans for East Gainesville. Former UF Student Senate President Robert Agrusa, who is campaigning for a seat as a District 2 At-Large commissioner, stressed the importance of safety in East Gainesville. More neighborhood-watch programs are needed in order to hold each neighborhood accountable, Agrusa said. Local Lauren Poe, who is NewS running for a District 2 Commission seat, said he went on a ride-along with a Gainesville police officer and saw places in East Gainesville that he thinks should be "condemned." "I've seen the potential, the possibilities that the community has to offer, but I've also seen the consequences if we choose to do nothing," Poe said. Education was also a major issue brought up by the Alliance. "If Johnny can't read and Johnny can't graduate, then Johnny isn't going to be a productive citizen," said Ed Jennings, a former state representative and a co-chairman on the Alliance's executive board. "All our hearts should bleed for that." Agrusa said more vocational schools should be offered in East Gainesville. "They encourage at-risk children to go through programs that stress success in a particular field," Agrusa said. Candidates were also asked how they would permanently implement black history in public schools. Poe, who taught American history at Fort Clarke Middle School, said every day, week and month should demonstrate the importance of black history. .~t.

"The more options we have the better," he said. Reilly said he would like to eventually keep the library open 24 hours a day during final exams. "People need to study, and for better or worse people are pulling all-nighters," Reilly said. "I think having a place on campus where people can do that is tremendously important."

And to promote the event, members were their usual showstealing selves on Wednesday A pie-eating contest on Turlington Plaza -Wednesday afternoon promoted the show in outrageous TSF fashion. Erik Voss, TSF treasurer and UF sophomore, chose to inhale his pie rather than eat it, causing him to dramatically spit it out and startle passersby. "I got it all up my nose, and now everywhere I smell smells like lemon meringue pie," Voss said. "I just wanted to have fun with it and get the word out there." Voss' pie-eating antics are the first of many spur-of-the-moment performances visitors can expect from him and about 30 others during the shows. He has also helped the troupe write a few sketch-comedy acts. before battling it out at Constans Theatre for the chance to earn bragging rights and a coveted improv championship belt. Brooks Heatherly, TSF president and UF theater and telecommunication junior, said the troupe has been preparing for the show since November. The group passed out fliers, wrote chalk messages on campus sidewalks and made a video to promote the event. "It's a chance for us to really showcase who we are and what we do," Heatherly said. The shows will be performed in a style similar to MTV's show "Wild 'N Out," but Voss said this version is more structured because a referee will be there to blow his whistle, throw flags and penalize players for breaking the rules. The group will perform other short improv games similar to the ones played on the TV show "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"

6, ALLIGATOR N THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 2008 Editorial Recycled Idea Reuse cities' plans to reduce waste omeowners looking to reduce their energy consumption can take advantage of the rebates Gainesville Regional Utilities offers for solar water heaters. Commuters looking for a way to conserve fuel can use the new Web-based Alachua County carpool program. These are just a few of the latest ways Gainesville residents can go green. And it's our guess, judging by the growing number of Toyota Priuses driving around town -along with UF's growing commitment to sustainability -that this trend is one that's here to stay. However, local government may be overlooking one of the most fundamental ways to protect the environment: recycling. The City of Gainesville's mandatory recycling ordinance, first enacted in 1997, requires all businesses within city limits to separate designated recyclable materials and establish a recycling program. But for the roughly 23,000 apartment units around town, the city has only mandated that newspapers And metal cans be recycled. Why stop there? Much larger cities like Pittsburgh, San Diego and Seattle have successfully made recycling mandatory. In 2006, Seattle passed its recycling law to prohibit recyclables in both residential and business garbage as a way to reduce landfill space and saw a 90 percent compliance rate without enforcement problems. While the City of Gainesville Web site does provide a helpful checklist where you can figure out if you are a "garbage geek" or an "environmental angel," we think it's time Gainesville stepped up to the plate and made recycling mandatory for all apartment complexes. Underage, under arrest he popular joke that you turn 21 years old when you move to Gainesville is something many UF students have taken literally at some point or another. Whether it's letting your friend buy you a drink and sneak it to you in a crowded bar or, more boldly, ordering a drink while cleverly making sure your wristbanded-less arms don't show, it's an all-toocommon practice. But that doesn't make it legal. We're not going to sit here and pretend that we haven't attempted the above actions, but we will say that now it's just not worth the incredible risk they require. Sure, getting away with something you're not supposed to be doing in public may give you a little thrill -if you're into that sort of thing. And yes, you shouldn't be restricted from buying a beer when you can legally fight for your country in war. But, it is what it is. You will be arrested, and you will have to make that phone call home that no one wants to make. Since the Gainesville Police Department is beefing up patrols at local bars, it seems ridiculous to even try to pull a fast one at The Swamp Restaurant. We can't reasonably expect local law enforcement to ignore the dangers of an out-of-control drinking scene, which was tragically illustrated with the death of GPD Lt. Corey Dahlem last April. So, we say, if you really must have your booze, just be responsible and stay home. Or better yet, host a party. 0 the indepenIent florida alligator Chad Smith EDITOR Devin Culclasure MANAGING EDITOR Panagiota Papakos OPINIONS EDITOR Leigh Shapiro EDITORIAL BOARD The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

A _ Dot, i~jrJ -, 777S -15~~~~ k,,_0_ e 'tdt ete of\ an yot C>T Guest~ coum 'Studnt-atlet\ ofe-noyoo hile high-school seniors all over the country are struggling to achieve nothing less than a 4.0 to get into their top-choice university, the star quarterback of their graduating class is receiving a full ride to wherever his heart desires. Admissions officers don't even glance at his grade point average. At some universities, receiving an,athletic scholarship is like accepting a free degree. Just attend class and take a few tests in between and try not to fail. You would think that these athletes would take this free education and put it to good use. However, National Collegiate Athletic Association statistics prove that most Division I schools are experiencing low graduation success rates among athletes, namely in the college football category. While UF's football program graduates about 72 percent of its football players, this number is sadly beyond the averages of other schools with a similar level of talent on the field. A prime example is the recent BCS tournament game between Ohio State University and Louisiana State University. Both schools graduate less than 54 percent of their football players. I guess talent isn't everything. Besides these two schools, it is appalling to note that among the bowl games this season, at least 10 teams had players benched for academic ineligibility. According to ESPN.com, Michigan State University alone had five players sitting out for their unsuccessful match-up against Boston College in the Champs Sports Bowl. You don't even need to look further than our own state. There was talk of Florida State University not even participating in the Music City Bowl due to allegations of academic dishonesty against more than 20 of its players. So, let me get this straight. These athletes are given this academic reward from a highly accredited school, and Rebecca Ganzak letters@alligator.org nearly half of them throw it away. Of course each situation is playerspecific, but isn't the point of attending college to get a degree? Or are they just using it as a stepping stone to the NFL? The chances of all of these players making it in professional ball is slim to none, so you would think they would take it more seriously. Who is to blame here? Is it the university for setting unreachable standards for their student athletes from whom they demand so much? Or is it the athletes for forgetting the true meaning of putting academics first? Some suggest it would be a good idea to force the players to stay in school longer than the current minimum. This could make them realize if they have come this far, then they should finish. Another solution would be to lower the graduation standards for student athletes, considering their crazy schedules. Some have even gone as far as to recommend removing athletic programs altogether. Let's not even go there. Maybe other schools would only have to follow UF's lead to solve this problem. Our University Athletic Association has an entire department dedicated to providing expert guidance to Gators student athletes. Many other schools, however, do not provide such services or if they do, they're just not working. My experience here at UF wouldn't be the same without game days, tailgates and football rivalries. It's OK for both fans and players to participate in sports, but it shouldn't be the only reason they attend. Rebecca Ganzak is a journalism senior.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Running Huckabee column irresponsible In reference to the Mike Huckabee column published in Tuesday's Alligator, I would like to commend the editorial staff on their incredible and unbiased coverage of the upcoming presidential election. It is understandable that sometimes the editorial staff can become exhausted by their bashing of the Republican Party, and, inevitably, you have to look to the U-Wire to fill the opinions page with leftwing propaganda. In my three years as a reader, I have not seen anything resembling responsible reporting or balanced political coverage. The Huckabee column was devoid of anything constructive. I don't like Huckabee, but you can't possibly trick us into believing that you will print an equally bad article about Hillary John Edwards.

DAVID LOW 0 AVENUE WRITER "Hey, nice pants, faggot!" My heart froze. There were others around, but I knew the ignorant, hateful and untrue words were directed at me. Turning, I saw four men, each with beer in hand, sitting on the back of a parked truck. After more jabs at my sexuality, I couldn't help but wonder why my skinny jeans had caused the whole ordeal. The genesis It was in second grade when I got my first CD, and from that point on, music was my life. Soon I began playing guitar, often standing in front of a mirror to emulate the rock stars I saw on TV and in photographs. Of course, something didn't look quite right. But in 1999, while wrapped up in heavy metal from the '80s, I decided I wanted to look like the titans of thrash I so admired. I wanted to change my style for music It's a social thing "Since the early 1900s, music Rock the Look and street wear, with their unlikely color combinations and unusual prints, are probably the largest movements today in music and fashion's symbiotic relationship. "Hip-hop culture is stronger than ever, because it has become incorporated in our day-to-day lives," he said. "Hip-hop will probably never die." Turner also said that music of the different eras all had importance at the time they emerged, but like like a "weirdo." The UF journalism junior says people often assume that she listens to weird music because of the way she dresses. But Ciaccia, who has been a fashion intern with the Denise Williams Showroom and Streeters NYC, who Everyone is different, but that's how we get by -stereotyping people. everything else, died only MatthewTurner to be revived later, sansowner of Wolfgang Clothing Boutique statement. has been a driving force in fashion," said Matthew Turner, owner of Wolfgang Clothing Boutique at 1127 W University Ave. "It's been a huge factor, not necessarily in high fashion, but in what's going on on the street." Wolfgang's not your general clother, but that was part of Turner's intention. While the store doesn't cater to one specific audience, groups whose styles are steeped in hip-hop and indie rock music will likely enjoy the clothes, he said. Tumer, who graduated from the University of North Florida with a bachelor's degree in psychology and a minor in music history, said many people are affected and changed by music because they want to express themselves as part of a culture. While fashions and the music associated with them can help people of similar styles and points of view connect, being different and making a statement with clothes can also prove to be alienating. Lauren Ciaccia says she dresses The first time a style that accompanies music comes along, there is meaning behind it. But usually, when the style is back, the meaning has changed, he said. "With punk, it meant they were rebelling and not down with the current state of affairs," he said. "But now if someone is 'punk,' it's pretty much someone saying, 'yeah, I know how to rock this look.' There are always exceptions, though." Turner doesn't like to label people solely on choice of clothes. In fact he hates labels, but accepts that it's what people do. supplied clothing for indie music groups like Bright Eyes and Rilo Kiley, doesn't feel that music has a lot to do with the way people dress. "I think it did a lot more in the past," she said. "When I think of different eras, like '90s grunge, '70s glam rock, '70s punk, '60s hippie, etcetera, it was the music of the time that was literally fueling different movements in fashion." But she said that another movement is also happening now, with "the whole indie, hipster scene." Tumer agrees, but said hip-hop Different music affects personal style 'Juno' delivers warmth despite indie pandering DANNY DJELJOSEVIC 0 AVENUE WRITER "Juno" is "Little Miss Sunshine" for 2007: a cute comedy with "indie" sensibilities that has won the hearts of both critics and audiences alike. The main difference between the two, however, is that "Juno" is actually good. -Ellen Page stars as Juno, a spunky teen who finds herself pregnant thanks to her friend Paulie (Michael Cera of "Superbad" and, more importantly, TV's "Arrested Development"). Realizing her inability to raise another human being, she decides to put it up for adoption and finds a pair of young suburbanites (Jennifer Garner and Cera's "Arrested" co-star Jason Bateman) who seem genuine and caring enough. From there, Juno attempts to reconcile her relationship with Paulie as the marriage between her unborn child's adoptive parents falls apart. Films like this depend on their scripts, and "Juno" sports a strong one by newcomer Diablo Cody. Despite the subject matter, 'Juno' never really gives in to the schmaltz that threatened to undermine even a comedic avalanche like 'Knocked Up.' Despite the subject matter, "Juno" never really gives in to the schmaltz that threatened to undermine even a comedic avalanche like "Knocked Up." What appears onscreen is sarcastically funny, yet warm. At times, the film tries to pander to the indie crowd, but unlike the typical quirky comedy, Cody imbues the characters with humanity rather than just stylized weirdness. Director Jason Reitman keeps the script's indulgences in check. In the wrong hands, "Juno" could have been sub"Napoleon Dynamite" fare, but Reitman's direction gives the film a sense of verisimilitude despite all the more stylized elements working against it. The soundtrack, however, depicts the essential problem in the film of indie sensibilities being forced upon it. It features not only the appropriately awkward, folky music of The Moldy Peaches, but also indie mainstays like Belle & Sebastian and Sonic Youth. These are all acceptable as Juno could conceivably listen to them (and does listen to some of them), but the use of music by iconic acts like The Kinks and The Velvet Underground give the impression that Wes Anderson should sue somebody.

If you -see a guy with looser jeans and a hat turned to the side, you assume he's into hip-hop and if you see someone wearing khakis and a Lacoste shirt, he has to be a prep." While Ciaccia concurs, she believes there may be a kernel of truth in jumping to conclusions about someone's personality. "It's bad to judge people based on how they dress," she said, "but most of the time you're probably going to be right." Mission accomplished I'd almost made it out of the parking garage when the scuffling sounded behind me. My fears of harm were relieved when saw only one guy stumbling toward me.

* Want to hook up with a bud? Think again til Over drinks the other day, my girlfriend said something puzzling: "I like to sleep with my friends because I know them, but why do they always end up falling for me when I specifically tell them this isn't anything more than sex?" Her assertion got me thinking that I have a slew of friends with exactly the opposite problem -they think bedding their bud will produce their happily ever after. But do "friends-with-benefits" ever end up working? Isn't someone going to end up hurt? Doesn't the friendship become strained and awkward? The temptation for falling into the scenario is relatively self-explanatory: nookie without the needy, canoodling without the commitment, but safety and security from the sex. Like socialism, it seems brilliantly workable on paper. Reality check. It's not. A 2006 Michigan State University study found 60 percent of college students surveyed had or currently have a "FWB," but also that the situation usually brought more stress than satisfaction. Maybe someone wonders why they they wouldn't be a good couple if they were good as friends in the sack. Hurt feelings and disappointed expectations ensue and onward the awkward scenario unfolds. More of a numbers person? The same Michigan State survey also found that only 10 percent of FWBs ever turn into real romantic bliss. Further, a fourth of those surveyed lost their friendship entirely. Perhaps my former friend-with-benefit status binds me to such skepticism. I once attempted to turn my bud into my beu. I failed miserably and I have the journal entries to prove it. But I'd like to believe that I'm now wise enough now to see that the situation never ends up the way it's entered into -light-heartedly. Nine times out of 10 these situations fail to produce amore. More threatening, you have the potential of losing a person who you considered a trusting enough friend that you let them see you naked. Sure, the allure of friendly casual sex is omnipresent in us all, but sometimes keeping our raging hormones in check is a greater sign of maturity and self-assuredness. Lhe, c u de (?

Viewers have alternatives during strike ANA MONTANO 0 AVENUE WRITER With the Writers Guild of America strike still in full swing, TV viewers are starting to feel thc. effects. Yeah, we've gotten by in the past few weeks with the holidays to distract us, but now that they're over we' re left itching for a fix. So while we wait for a resolution to the strike, here are some fun alternatives for all you TV lovers: 1. Catch up on all the shows you've been meaning to watch but haven't had the time. So you've got a list of shows you've been dying to get into, but for whatever reason, you haven't been able to watch. Well, now is your chance, so borrow your friend's sets of "24" and "The Office." No commercials, no breaks and you get to watch at your own pace. It's like an online lecture except you want to watch it. 2. Watch shows that have already ended and are available on DVD. Get yourself a present with all the gift cards you racked up over the holidays and enjoy any of ({ No com the newly (or previbreaks a ously) defunct shows like "Seinfeld" and watch at your own "Alias." And if you an online lecturE didn't have premium want to watch cable, now is your chance to watch "The Sopranos" or "Six Feet Under" and know what everyone was talking about seven years ago. 3. Rewatch your favorite TV shows. If you're like me, you can watch .your favorite shows over and over. So rent or buy your favorite show, sit back, relax and remember why you fell in love with "Friends" in the first place. 4. Replace TV time with movie time. nercials, no nd you get to pace. It's like except you it. Hit up your local video rental place or sign up for Neflix instead of channel surfing your night away Set a goal. Try to watch IMDB.com's top 250 movies. It's a great way to see some of the good ones you might not have come across otherwise. 5. Turn off the TV. Go outside. We live in Florida. There's no ice, sleet or snow and you have resolutions to keep, right? No? Want to stay inside with "Rock of Love" and a tub of ice cream? Cool. 0O 8 rb 8 a rd Have you ever accidentally (or purposely) eavesdropped and overheard something so ridiculous that you had to laugh and then M g a /nw7lQ tell all your friends later?

The pseudo-concept album continues the tale of Michael Young History, a fictional character that debuted on Lupe's first album. Songs like "Streets on Fire," "Put You On Game" and the horror-fihn-worthy "The Coolest" personify abstract concepts like "the streets," "the game" and "the cool" in order to explain and criticize some of hip-hop's most popular cich s. This is most evident on the stripped-down, synth-heavy "Dumb It Down," a satirical mocking of modem hiphop's lyrical deterioration. Outside of the overall album concept, individual songs deal with their own distinct issues. On "Gotta Eat," Lupe raps from the perspective of a fast food meal trying to kill its unknowing consumer, while "Little Weapon," brilliantly produced by Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump, is a militaristic take on child soldiers and the effect of violent video games on kids. While "The Cool" takes pride in its fresh ideas, some of the best moments come from its most simple songs. The nostalgic love song "Paris, Tokyo" is reminiscent of vintage ATribe Called Quest, while the orchestral "Superstar" is a reminder of how current hip-hop can still make a listener feel good. Ii

18, ALLIGATOR I THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 2008 UF picks up RB prospect By MIKE MCCALL Alligator Staff Writer mmccall@alligator.org UF added another name to its 2008 recruiting clss with the verbal commitment of Groveland South Lake High running back Jeff Demps. The 5-foot-8,180-pounder made his decision on ESPNU Wednesday, and his 4.35-second 40-yard dash speed should fit in well in the Gators' offense. Recruiting services have described Demps as both a receiver and running back, and Scout.com rates him as a four-star prospect. "I just think for the spread offense that Florida runs, he's an ideal player," Scout.com recruiting analyst Mike Bakas said. "He's explosive, talented and fast enough that they'll find him a position. Whether it's in the return game, slot receiver or running back, he's the kind of kid you want to bring in and find a position later for him." Demps rushed for 4,727 yards and 58 touchdowns in his prep career. "I think he's a lot like (current UF freshman) Chris Rainey," Bakas said. "They're both 1,500yard rushers, explosive in the return game and some of the fastest players in the state of Florida." Verbal commitments are non-binding until Feb. 6. one of the toughest schedules in the nation. UF has two fewer meets than last year with only 10 competitions, but seven of the meets are against teams ranked in the preseason top 25. Faehn thinks the shortened season will be beneficial because her team will be in better shape for the postseason and not tire out as it did after 12 meets in 2007. "Because our season was so long, at nationals they were a little tired," Faeln said. "[The shorter schedule] will help keep our athletes fresher not only heading into the postseason, but, also, it gives them a little bit of hunger." One meet UF is looking forward to is its matchup with Georgia on Jan. 18 in Gainesville. The Bulldogs are the preseason No. 1 and three-time defending national champions, and the prospect of defeating a rival en route to accomplishing a lifelong dream is an exciting idea for Sinclair. "I would feel as if I could cure cancer." interesting. He appears to be getting a sweeter deal in Knoxville, Tenn., as he'll get to coach a team who commits to a more traditional running game, and I'm sure he'll be better compensated as well. But there has got to be unease among the UF coaches and players when one of their own leaves to take the same position at a rival school. I have to wonder if UF's trip to Knoxville in September will be a particularly friendly reunion. Tune will tell whether this will prove to be a major coup for the Volunteers or if they simply lifted a dead weight off the Gators' shoulders. If you're looking for an early indication, score round one to the Gators. They may not have anyone to coach him yet, but the Gators added running back Jeff Demps to its 2008 recruiting class Wednesday. Demps chose UF over Tennessee.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 19 UF WOMEN'S TENNIS No. 4 UF looks to shake off rust in Vegas tune-up By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC Alligator Writer cyazbec@alligator.org Before they begin their dualmatch season next week, the UF women's tennis team will have one more tournament-style tune-up starting Thursday Four members of the team will travel to Las Vegas to play in the National Collegiate Classic, which lasts until Sunday Senior Lolita Frangulyan and sophomores Megan Alexander, Anastasia Revzina and Csilla Borsanyi will try to regain their feel for match play in time for the upcoming season. UF coach Roland Thornqvist ,said his players may be a little rusty but are physically strong with each coming off a break of two months or longer. "It's an excellent time for us to play some really good competition," he said. "This tournament traditionally is tougher than the NCAA tournament." The Gators are ranked No. 4 in the ITA preseason poll after advancing to the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament last year. Despite the high team ranking, the Gators don't have any individuals ranked higher than No. 37 (Alexander), probably due to the team's lack of play during the fall. "I hope that's a motivating factor to our athletes," Thornqvist said. Part of the reason for the minimal play was because of nagging injuries that have affected several players. "This tournament traditionally is tougher than the NCAA tournament." Roland Thornqvist UF coach "The fall was not that good for us," Thomqvist said. "We did not use the fall as much as we could." Now, everyone is healthy and there are seven eligible players with the addition of freshman Julia Cohen, who Thornqvist said could help the team right away. UF also has two ranked doubles teams, but they will mix up the rotations at this tournament, pairing Alexander with Borsanyi and Revzina with Frangulyan. Thomqvist said he did not know which of the seven players will play on the three doubles teams this season but hopes this tournament will give him an idea. He added that getting off to a fast start this season is important for the team because it sets the tone for the rest of the year. The Gators will be tested early in the season, their biggest challenge coming later this month against No. 29 South Florida, whom Thomqvist called a "top-10 talent team." "January is a key month for us," he said. "The more matchltb I think we play, the better we're going to get as a team." But it all starts Thursday. "If you get one win here it's going to really help you in the individual rankings, but even if you pick up some losses here it's not going to hurt you because tl field is so strong," Thomqvist said. "We just want to get some matches going into our dual-match season. We have a lot to gain from this event and not a whole lot to lose. "Even if we bomb, we're still going to get something out of it." Gators confident entering conference play in Kentucky 0 UF WILL TRY FOR ITS EIGHTH STRAIGHT WIN. By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Staff Writer pkegler@alligator.org Another chance to surpass expectations. That's why forward Marshae Dotson-and the Gators can't wait to start Southeastem Conference play Thursday at Kentucky. Dotson, originally from Columbus, Ohio, expects to have a few family members and friends make the 160-mile journey to Lexington, Ky. While Dotson looks forward to that, she also can't wait to start proving the doubters wrong. The Gators come into the conference opener on a seven-game winning streak, although the media preseason poll picked UF to finish 11th of 12 in the SEC. The Wildcats were slated to finish sixth. Dotson doesn't mind the disrespect. "I like when they do stuff like that," Dotson said. "It's more motivation for us." Assistant coach Susie Gardner said turnovers and rebounding will be major keys to success. Ballhandling has eluded UF at times this season, although Gardner has been surprised at the recent turnaround. The Gators Gardner have committed 20 or more turnovers seven times this season but had just 14 at Temple on Saturday. "We were turning the ball over like 28 times a game, and now those numbers have decreased," Gardner said. "At the same time, the level of defensive pressure is going to intensify." Sophomore point guard Lonnika Thompson said the teamhas worked hard to prepare for additional presses and quicker opponents. "We've been doing pretty good," Thompson said. "It's time to just step our game up a little more because it's SEC now." Another part of this season's turnaround has been the team's domination of the boards. UF has outrebounded its opponents in 12 of 15 games, including three doubledigit margins in the last four games. "We're a very good rebounding team, but going into conference play we're about to hit a different level of athlete, a different level of size in the post," Gardner said. The momentum gained from a seven-game winning streak won't hurt, though. "I don't think the team could be any more confident going into SEC play then we are right now," she said.

ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 2008 www.alligatorSports.org Ingram reverses field, will stay at UF U CONTRARY TO REPORTS, THE TIGHT END WILL NOT ENTER THE NFL DRAFT. 1 By JENNA MARINA Alligator Staff Writer jmarina@aIligator.org It looks like Gators tight end Cornelius Ingram will hold on to his orange-and-blue jersey for one more season. Ingram decided Wednesday afternoon to hold off on the NFL Draft and stay for his senior year at UF, Ingram's brother Greg Bowie said. Ingram and teammate Derrick Harvey filed paperwork with the NFL to gauge their draft stock in early December. Harvey has already declared he will forgo his senior year. The NFLs advisory committee projected Ingram as a third-round pick, but Bowie said his brother's decision was not solely influenced by his projection in the draft. "He knew he could have gone to the combine and been an early. second-rounder," Bowie said. "But there were two things he wanted to do -put on some pounds, you know, grow stronger, and get his degree." Yahoo Sports reported last Thursday that Ingram was entering the draft and quoted him as saying, "It was just my time." But Bowie said Ingram had been weighing the decision carefully since the Capital One Bowl on Jan. 1, in which he tied his season low for receptions with one catch for 17 yards. He had even stopped answering his phone for a few days so he could clear his head. "Playing in the NFL is a goal that he's had since coming to Florida," Bowie said. "That's why he came to Florida. He had a good opportunity to play at the next level but he's staying for one more year." Ingrm finished fourth on the team with 34 recepCasey Brooke Lawson / Allgator tions for 508 yards and seven touchdowns this season.

GYMNASTICS Gators may have to survive without coach By BOBBY CALLOVI Alligator Writer bcallovi@aligator.org Despite the uncertainty of Coach Rhonda Faehn's future, the UF gymnastics team is prepared to make a run at a national championship. Faehn had a baby boy on Tuesday night, and although she plans to be back coaching the Gators soon, there is still a chance she won't be for some time. If Faehn takes a leave of absence, the team is ready to move along without many changes. "We have prepared ourselves ever since we found out she was pregnant," co-captain Melanie Sinclair said. "We're going to go out there and do our thing. We're not going to change a thing." Assistant coach Adrian Burde will run the team until Faehn returns. With or without its coach, the team hopes to improve upon its third-place finish at April's NCAA Championships. "We're going to go out there and do our thing. We're not going to change a thing." Melanie Sinclair UF co-ca ptain The result wasn't exactly the finish the Gators hoped for considering that many regarded them as favorites to win it all. "Well, it was a little disappointing," Sinclair said. "There were a lot of people thinking we had it, knowing we were No. 1 all season." With five All-Americans returning Sinclair, Corey Hartung, Amanda Castillo, Ashley Reed and Tiffany Murry -the Gators are ranked second in the nation by the GymInfo preseason coaches' poll. Those five are surrounded by four other experienced competitors from last year's team and two new freshmen -Lynn Denblyden and Alicia Goodwin -who are expected to contribute. The Gators also added Maranda Smith, a redshirt sophomore transfer from UCLA. Even with all their talent, the Gators won't have an easy road to the national championship as they must pick through SEE GYM, PAGE 19 Departure of Drayton fails to surprise or a couple of months now, there has been a lot of buzz about UF assistant coaches possibly leaving town, buttI never thought Stan Drayton would be the first to go. Drayton, formerly the Gators' runnIng backs coach before bolting this week to fill the same position with the. Tennessee Volunteers, was arguably the least heralded of UF's position coaches. To say that the Gators' runng backs have failed to impress during Drayton's tenure would be a huge understatement. Not surprisingly, Drayton was also the lowest paid UF position coach by a fairly decent margin. In fairness to 'Drayton, the Gators' personnel at has been called BryanJ~neS into question Bryan Jones since Urban Bryan Out Loud sMneer Uook bjones@aligator.org the reins of the program in 2005, and it's difficult to discern how much of UF's problems at tailback can be attributed to players and how much can be credited to coaching. It's interesting to note that Drayton was the running backs coach at Mississippi State in 2004 when Jerious Norwood ran former UF coach Ron Zook out of Gainesville with a 174yard rushing performance in the Bulldogs' infamous 38-31 upset win against the Gators. From a purely speculative standpoint, though, I think Drayton was on the hot seat anyway. With former Pacific-10 Freshman of the Year Emmanuel Moody set to take over at tailback next season and Mon Williams likely returning from injury, expectations for UF's running game should skyrocket. Another disappointing performance out of the unit may have spelled the end of Drayton's tenure at UF, anyway But where the Gators will take a hit from Drayton leaving is in the recruiting race.
