Students partake in monopolizing record


Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff
Lindsay Dusi, a UFjunior, raises her fist in celebration Wednesday at the Reitz Union while Jake Pease, a UF
senior, looks on. They were attempting to set a record for the most people playing MONOPOLY worldwide.

Pass Go. Collect one world
record.
Twenty-six people gathered at
the Reitz Union on Wednesday
morning to play MONOPOLY and
helped UF go down in the record
books one more time.
They participated in an at-
tempt to set a Guinness World
Record for the most people play-
ing MONOPOLY simultaneously
worldwide and made history in
the process.
The event, hosted by the Public
Relations Student Society of
America, celebrated the release of
the new "MONOPOLY Here and
Now: The World Edition" and
gave UF students the chance to
come together to share a favorite
pastime.
"This is just another way that
UF is putting its mark on the
world," said Christina Baez, trea-
surer for the group and organizer
of the event. "We're not just do-
ing this in sports, academics and


partying. We're doing it in board
games, too."
To be officially counted by
Guinness, at least 25 people need-
ed to play the game for an hour. UF
just made the cut.
For Lindsay Dusi, an animal
sciences junior, the event was an
opportunity to play a game she
enjoys, get free food and possibly
add another dog game piece to her
small collection.

"I'm a big kid at heart.
I love board games."
Lindsay Dusi
animal science junior

She said she tries to take the
little dog piece from every game
of MONOPOLY she plays. So far,
she's collected five, including a
gold dog from a limited edition
version of the game.
"I like MONOPOLY," Dusi said.
"I'm a big kid at heart. I love board
games."
She naturally chose the dog as

ELECTIONS 2008'

Local leaders visit DNC


By ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Writer

Alachua County was well-represented
in Denver on Wednesday night as Barack
Obama was named the presidential
nominee at the Democratic National
Convention.
Most county representatives came as
delegates to the convention, which ends
today.
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan said this is the
first time she's attended the convention as
a Florida delegate, though she went to the
2004 convention as an honored guest.
She said Tuesday that one of the most
inspiring moments of the convention so far
was Michelle Obama's speech.
"I was completely galvanized by
Michelle Obama," Hanrahan said. "She
was so cool under pressure and just such a
brilliant woman."


Michael Heaney, an assistant professor
of political science at UF, is in Denver as an
observer and researcher.
Heaney said he is conducting surveys
to determine differences between the
Democratic and Republican National
Conventions.
Results in the survey
comparing delegates
for Hillary Clinton and
delegates for Obama
have shown a rift in
the Democratic Party
despite calls for party
Clinton unity, he said.
Aside from meeting former Sen. George
McGovern, Heaney said the most exciting
part of the convention was people cooper-
ating with his study.
Other delegates included Lizzie Jenkins,
president of the Democratic Black Caucus

Third floor to expand


* REITZ WILL EXPAND TO HOUSE
MORE STUDENT GROUPS.

By JACQUELYN WEINER
Alligator Writer

If there's one thing students and UF
staff can agree on, it's that there isn't
enough space in the Reitz Union.
"We're outgrowing the Reitz
Union," said Jordan Johnson, chairman
of the UF Student Senate Budget and
Appropriations Committee.
"It is a central location for students,
whether they want to grab a bite to eat or
do business, and the No. 1 struggle that I
have had in Student Government is be-
ing able to find sufficient office space for
student organizations because we have
so many," Johnson said.


So when the former Office of Student
Activities was moved to the north side
of the hallway, the prime, newly vacant
space on the third floor of the Reitz Union
caught Johnson's eye.
"I knew it was something we had to
jump on," Johnson said.
By the beginning of the
On spring semester, about 20
Campus student organizations will
have brand-hew office space
in what was once the.Office
of Student Activities.
Johnson said construction began
about a month ago and is underway. The
student-government funded project will
cost about $40,000, he said.
The Office of Student Activities was
moved and consolidated with the Student

One Less Car Challenge


to kick off in October


* THE CHALLENGE ENCOURAGES
DRIVERS TO USE BICYCLES.

By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Writer

For some Gators, the days of a single-
passenger commute are coming to a
close.
UF is encouraging students, faculty
and staff to pledge to take an alternative
method of commuting to campus by par-
ticipating in the One Less Car Challenge,
which starts Oct. 17.
The day marks the start of a semester-
long commitment by participants to limit
their car use.
Those interested can make indi-
vidual commitments, but Anna Prizzia,
outreach coordinator of UF's Office of
Sustainability, said she hopes student
organizations will create teams.
Starting Oct. 17, participants can log
in and track the average number of miles
they and their teammates travel a day, a
count that will continue until Dec. 17.
Aside from commuting to campus via
a bicycle, Prizzia said alternative trans-
portation includes scooters; GreenRide, a
carpooling service; and Zipcar, a car-shar-
ing program.
"We know that alternative transporta-
tion isn't one-size-fits-all," Prizzia said.
"We're just hoping they find a mode that
works for them."
Registration for the event is ongoing
and will continue until Sept. 17, accord-
ing to a UF news release.
An alternative transportation fair will
kick off the low-fuel festivities on Oct. 16.
At the fair, RTS staff will be present to
discuss routes and the new Gator Locator
Global Positioning System. Prizzia said
RTS may add more convenient routes for


UF staff and faculty soon.
Students can also seek tips and dem-
onstrations from local bike organizations,
including Kickstand and the Student
Government Bike Repair station, from 11
a.m. to 4 p.m. on the Reitz Union North
Lawn, according to the release.
On Oct. 17, there will be a celebration
from 10 a.m. to noon, which will feature
drawings for door prizes, including a
digital camera, Prizzia said.
The event will also include a car versus
bicycle race by two UF employees who
are sent to run errands around town.
"Every year that we've done it, the
bike has won," Prizzia said. "The car
needed almost double the
On time the bike'took."
Campus Prizzia said she hopes the
participants' pledges become
habits by the end of the challenge Dec.
17.
"It's an opportunity to practice, and
practice makes perfect, you know?" she
said.
Zeke Zylberberg, a UF anthropology
and religion senior, has not yet committed
'to the program, but he already bicycles
about three miles to campus for class
anyway.
For Zylberberg, 'his commitment
to biking began when he trained with
friends for a 4,500-mile bicycle ride
that stretched from Austin, Texas, to
Anchorage, Alaska.
He said biking in a group gives new
cyclists an advantage because they can
learn from veterans.
He said students who think they lack
the time to switch to bicycling may find
bicycling to be more enjoyable and faster
than driving a car.
Not everybody needs to bicycle, but
everyone can make a difference, he said.

UPD focuses on escape for crises


* POLICE CREATED VIDEO IN
LIGHT OF CAMPUS SHOOTINGS.

By RACHEL ARROYO
Alligator Writer

Professor Liviu Librescu chose to
stand up to the Virginia Tech gun-
man that went on a shooting rampage
in one of the school's lecture halls in
April 2007.
He blocked his classroom door, al-
lowing time for students to escape.
In light of such campus shootings,
universities are taking measures to
prepare students and faculty for po-
tential crisis situations.
About 500 universities have chosen
to purchase "Shots Fired When
Lightning Strikes," a survival-train-
ing video created by former U.S. State
Department officials and FBI agents,
said Randy Spivey, executive director
for the Center for Personal Protection
and Safety.
The center is a national organiza-
tion that teaches workplace violence
prevention and travel safety.
The training video has been labeled
controversial because "taking out the
shooter" is one of the last-ditch meth-
ods taught, Spivey said.
"As a very last resort, you may be
in a situation where you are face-to-
face with the shooter and takeout is
the only option," Spivey said.


In that case, he said people should
use whatever tools they have avail-
able, be it a cell phone or a cup of hot
coffee.
"As a very last resort, you
may be in a situation where
you are face-to-face with the
shooter and takeout is the
only option."
Randy Spivey
executive director for the Center for
Personal Protection and Safety

"You're not traumatizing people by
providing training," he said.
While UF hasn't purchased the
student version of "Shots Fired,"
the University Police Department
does use a similar program titled
"Active Shooter," said UPD Capt. Jeff
Holcomb.
The presentation emphasizes
escape methods as well as putting
something between yourself and the
shooter, he said.
"You don't seek the active aggres-
sor out," Holcomb said, while stress-
ing escape as the first priority for those
in crisis situations.
While the presentation may not fo-
cus as much on confronting the shoot-
er, it does include disarming tactics.
"If you are where the shooter starts
firing, your best option may be to dis-


arm the shooter," Holcomb said.
Another aspect of "Active Shooter"
that Holcomb said he likes is the ques-
tion-and-answer session, which al-
lows him to address various scenarios
on a case-by-case basis.
Holcomb has been delivering the
hour-long PowerPoint presentation to
staff and groups such as Department
of Recreational Sports and the Inter-
Residence Hall Association for more
than a year, he said.
The groups usually range in size
from 120 to 150.
While the presentation hasn't been
delivered to the general student body,
Holcomb said that anyone is welcome
to call and request it.
Lindsey Nix, facility manager at the
Student Recreation and Fitness Center,
underwent the "Active Shooter" pro-
gram as part of her fall training about
a year ago.
She said she thought the emphasis
of the program is to move everyone to.
a secure location, but she didn't feel
the video urged people to take a stance
against an aggressor.
As for offering the presentation to
the general student body, Nix said she
thought it should be reserved for staff
to combat ineffectiveness and a poten-
tial panic situation.
"I think they should show a select
few people rather than everybody,"
she said. "If too many people know, it
won't be effective."


UF scores high


green grade

* SIERRA CLUB RANKED SCHOOLS FOR
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY EFFORTS.

UF ranks No. 7 in a list of the country's "cool"
schools.
Why the cool ranking? Being environmentally
friendly.
The top 10 list of schools is in the latest issue of
Sierra, the magazine of the Sierra Club, the largest
environmental organization in the U.S.
Dedee DeLongpr-Johnston, director of UF's
Office of Sustainability, said it's an honor for UF to
be the only Florida school on the list.
Middlebury College in Vermont is No. 1.
In the rankings, UF is lauded for recovering 40
percent of its waste and its high volume of eco-
friendly student organizations.
DeLongpr-Johnston said she's been working to
bring down UF's $40 million electric bill each year.
"Forty percent of it is turning off the lights and
unplugging things at the end of the day," she said.
The Sierra Club knocked UF's score to 86 for a
lack of open or sustainable investing policies.
Members of Students for a Democratic Society,
or SDS, protested several times last year to make
UF's investments public. The UF Foundation is a
private entity that oversees UF's $1.2 billion en;
dowment fund.

Editorial


Flight, not fight

UF says we make better

runners than fighters
Throughout our precious years of existence, we have
learned to appreciate the concept of self-preservation. Pain
sucks, and that's that. There's no reason why protecting
ourselves shouldn't be at the top of our list of personal
priorities.
That's why the Editorial Board is torn on today's issue.
Former officials from the U.S. Department of State
and FBI created an if-something-goes-down-then-here's-
what-you-do video for students and faculty who find
themselves in the line of fire on campus. The instructional
video is available to universities for purchase, and 500 uni-
versities nationwide have already picked up a copy.
UF is not on that list.
Don't worry just yet. Yes, your school still loves you
and cares about your safety. They just haven't bought the
video because the University Police Department already
has an in-case-of-emergency video.
The difference is that the federally distributed video
teaches tactics for a face-to-face confrontation with an
assailant, whereas UPD prefers that we choose our flight
reflex rather than give into our urge to fight, except as a
last resort.
Here's where we can't quite make up our minds.
We would like to think that, when presented with a
deadly-situation,.we would have a primary option besides
desperately searching for an escape route because that
may not be the best reaction given the circumstances.
Instead, the video recommends that we employ a
physical defense only when given an opportunity to dis-
arm the shooter.
Well, that sounds all fine and dandy, but there are holes
in that kind of logic. How the hell would we disarm the
gunman?
Obviously, if some maniac busts down a classroom door
wielding a rifle straight from Rainbow Six, we aren't about
to try to disarm him. We're jumping lecterns and sliding
between desks to get the hell out of the nearest window.
The video instructs us to utilize our surroundings. If
we're backed into a corner and staring down a gun barrel,
a hot cup of coffee is the last thing that we would think to
use as a weapon.
MacGyver may have been able to take down an armed
assailant with only a spiral notebook, a mechanical pencil
and his shoelaces, but the.Editorial Board lacks his level of
improvisational training.
We understand UF doesn't want to show a video that
may give its students any ideas about how to be the hero
when lives are at stake.
After all, nobody wants a high-strung undergrad on a
steady balance of Red Bull and insomnia to spring to ac-
tion when a door slams too loudly, causing him to revert
to his video training and bludgeon an unsuspecting fresh-
man with his organic chemistry textbook.
Maybe we're misunderstanding the situation because
we haven't seen the video.
Still, the thought of turning to a cell phone or a flimsy
used textbook to save our lives isn't exactly comforting.
Students' safety should always be a top priority, so
we're happy that UPD has some sort of plan for us, but it
isn't hard to doubt the effectiveness of random classroom
items against a crazy with a gun.

While the UPD has a training video emphasizing that in the event of a school
shooting students should avoid a direct confrontation with the gunman, the
FBI has released a training video that takes a different approach:


Guest C.' T:

Nine-year-old pitch
A musician may win an award, an academic receives
a grant and an athlete finds him or herself glorified by
fans and the media. Jericho Scott, undoubtedly the best
pitcher in his New Haven, Conn., league, received his
accolades in the form of banishment from the sport of
baseball for being "too good."
Scott is 9-years-old.
Accused of throwing the ball "too hard" and "fright-
ening" opponents with his 40-mph fastball, league of-
ficials requested Scott move to another position other
than pitcher. Giving second base a try for one game,
Scott found himself longing to return to the place on the
field where he had led his team to an 8-0 record, on pace
for the playoffs.
Who can blame the child for wanting back the suc-
cess he had found through pitching?
Failing to heed the warning of league officials, Scott
took the mound in the subsequent game, leading to the
opposing team's vacating the field and forfeiting the
game.
As a result of Scott returning to his natural position,
officials informed Scott's team that they could no longer
participate in the league and would be disbanded.
Let me make this clear: Scott has never hit another
batter while pitching this season. He may be fast, but he
was throwing the ball accurately.
Furthermore, Scott is not another Danny Almonte, a
kid with a forged birth certificate who tried to beat the
Little League system in 2001. Scott is simply a 9-year-
old boy in an 8- to 10-year-old league.
Why must adults deny this young boy the oppor-
tunity to play baseball because he was blessed with
natural ability?
While at first glance Scott's targeting by league offi-


er unfairly ousted
cials stemmed out of concern for
the safety of his peers, there have
Been grumbles that there may be
ulterior motives to his expulsion.
Prior to the start of the season,
Scott was reportedly offered a
Daniel Seco spot on the roster of the defend-
letters@alligator.org ing league champions.
He rejected the invitation to
instead play on a team sponsored
by a local gym, which leads me to assume that he prob-
ably just wanted to have fun playing with his friends
The sponsor of the championship team is, in fact, the
employer of one of the league officials who had a hand
in disbanding Scott's team.
How sad! Adults perpetuating the age-old adage
that baseball was made for kids, and grown-ups only
screw it up. Overaggressive mothers and fathers con-
sumed with winning as they live vicariously through
their children and ruin the experience for all.
Why can't these individuals get over themselves and
fulfill their duties as positive role models for their chil-
dren rather than setting poor examples that their kids
will surely adopt?
We often hear stories about those who are undeserv-
ing being rewarded for whom they know rather than
what they've accomplished.
Scott is the antithesis of the child who makes the
all-star team simply because his or her father is the
coach. We should be celebrating the success of a young,
budding star rather than obsessing over the winning
and losing that so often robs the fun of Little League
Baseball.

Letters to the Editor
Obama unique candidate
Barack Obama is to your genera-
tion what John F. Kennedy was to
mine. The youth and vitality, the
charm and disarming smile, the
sense of humor and powerful intel-
lect these are qualities shared by
these men. We must get beyond
our prejudices and vote our hearts,
minds and the issues.
We know when we hear Obama
speak that he is inspirational-and
perhaps destined for greatness. His
messages of hope and change come
when we need them most, with our
critical economic woes and our end-


less $10 billion-a-month war in Iraq.
He is the kind of pragmatic
leader needed to unite the country
as we tackle the problems: ending
the war; energy independence us-
ing renewable resources; investing
in American industry and American
jobs; making college more afford-
able; healthcare for all; trade agree-
ments that benefit American work-
ers; and sound economic and tax
policies that reverse our country's
fall toward economic ruin.
Unlike McCain, Obama is a
unique candidate, not beholden to
lobbyists, corporate America and


the mega-rich. We must seize this
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to
elect this special and gifted man to
the presidency.
CliffCleland, member of the
executive committee of Dekalb County
Democrats in Dekalb, Il.
Senator stands by referendum
It is unfortunate that the
Alligator's Editorial Board does not
share the same excitement I do over
the Thanksgiving Travel Holiday,
but I guess I have six weeks until the
elections to try to change this.
As stated at Tuesday's meeting,


students' passage of the ballot ques-
tion in October would not magically
implement this travel holiday. UF,
like any government institution,
has a huge bureaucracy, and things
take a long time. Over the summer,
we spent a great deal of time speak-
ing with members of five different
administrative offices here at UE All
the feedback was positive, and this
project is quite viable.
With the question appearing on
the fall ballot, students now have
the opportunity to have input on
their college experiences.
Isn't this what Student


Government and voting is supposed
to be about? Our voice matters, and
with a positive vote; we can enact
this change. We can see this through
other ballot questions in the past.
A Moe's has arrived on campus
after a ballot question just like this
one as reported on the cover of
Wednesday's Alligator and a re-
newable energy fee is in the works.
We all have the ability to make a
difference at UF when we head to
the polls in October, especially when
it comes to the Thanksgiving Travel
Holiday.
Frank Bracco, UF student senator.

Woman charged for throwing plates, food at car


* POLICE IDENTIFIED SUSPECT
BASED ON SPAGHETTI SAUCE.

By ASHLEY HEMMY
Alligator Contributing Writer
A car was assaulted early Wednesday
Morning by "missiles," including a duffel
bag, spaghetti sauce and shards of plates.


Crystal McCook, 29, was charged with
throwing a "deadly missile" into a vehicle
for pelting a car with a variety of objects,
according to a Gainesville Police arrest
report.
At the time, car owner Leland
Alexander Mercer and two passengers
were inside the car.
McCook was seen throwing a 15-pound


duffel bag from the top of her stairs onto
the car, followed by plates and a glass
candle holder, the report said.
Debris and spaghetti
Local sauce were left on the hood
News of the car.
Police found a bowl of
spaghetti in McCook's apartment and
plates in her sink matching the broken


pieces, according to the report.
Mercer and his two passengers were
unharmed, but $3,000 in damage was done
to the car.
The duffel bag left two dents and vari-
ous scratches on the hood. The kitchen-
ware left a 5- to 7-inch crack in the front
windshield.
McCook denied throwing the objects.

Hearing for online voting moved up


* UF WAS SUED ON FEB. 22.

Developments in the lawsuit between a
student group and UF about online voting in
Student Government elections may bring a
hearing date closer.
Students for Online Voting, or SOLVe, sued
UF on Feb. 22 after the UF Supreme Court ruled
that putting an online-voting amendment on
the SG ballot would be unconstitutional. The
student court said online voting could interfere


with SG's ability to prevent voter coercion.
The First District Court of Appeal in
Tallahassee granted SOLVe's request to expe-
dite the case in July.
Joe Little, a UF adjunct
Student law professor and lawyer
Government for SOLVe, said though the
request was granted, it does
not offer a time frame for the final decision.
Court files show that UF is represented by
David M. Delaney and Elizabeth S. McKillop,
of Dell Graham, a local firm concentrated in


defense of civil lawsuits, along with attorneys
from UF's Office of the General Counsel.
Tommy Jardon, SOLVe president and UF
law student, said Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice
president for Student Affairs, asked him to
consider creating another committee to look
into the online-voting issue.
"A very small and very idealistic side of me
thinks something still may, may come out of
it," Jardon said.

Students still waiting for tickets with online system


* STUDENTS HAVE TO WAIT
IN VIRTUAL LINE.

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

Students looking to obtain tickets
to Saturday's football season opener
against Hawaii will hang up their
old method tonight in favor of wait-
ing online.
Unlike in years past, when stu-
dents called the Gator Athletic Ticket
Order Request System, known as
G.A.T.O.R.S., new Ticketmaster soft-
ware purchased by the University


Athletic Association will allow
students to log on to a Web site to
purchase any additional tickets.
However, don't expect, to be rid
of those long waits on hold just yet.
The system still has some kinks
after it was first used Aug. 18 when
student tickets went on sale for the
Tennessee, Arkansas and Vanderbilt
away games.
Student Sen. Jordan Johnson,
who chaired the UAA ticket distri-
bution committee last fall, said he
sat and watched as his roommates,
who logged on 20 minutes after he
did, scored tickets.
Johnson said he quit trying to get
tickets of his own after waiting for


an hour and a half.
"That was probably the most
common occurrence I had heard'
from other people, too," he said.
Nic Fischer, a UF mechanical en-
gineering senior, went online to buy
away game tickets and didn't even
know if he had gotten them or not
because an error message popped
up after he entered his billing infor-
mation.
Fischer said he called the UAA
customer service phone number
listed on the Web site but only got
recorded messages that it was past
business hours.
He called the next day, how-
ever, and was notified he received


a ticket.
Fischer's biggest concern is the
fact that students who are waiting in
the queue have no idea where they
stand in line.
"As far as reducing the wait
times, it's shorter, but
Student its still not as great as
Life it could be because you
could be potentially
waiting forever and not
know about it," he said.
Mark Gajda, UAA assistant ath-
letic director for ticket operations,
said there will be live operators
available tonight to help students
that have problems with the online
system.


Johnson's committee made the
recommendation for a universal
ticketing Web site to the UAA last
fall, but Gajda said the UAA had
been considering the option for four
or five years.
UAA staff took visits to numer-
ous places around Florida, includ-
ing Disney's Wide World of Sports,
with the most important visit be-
ing Pennsylvania State University,
which was one of the first to
implement Ticketmaster technology,
Gajda said.
Bud Meredith, PSU's director
of ticket operations, said his school
has used the system for seven years
now, and he couldn't be happier.


New Reitz offices to reduce need for student-funded storage space


EXPANSION, from page 1

Activities Center to become the new Center for
Student Activities and Involvement, said Mike
Mironack, director of operations for the Reitz
Union.
"The goal was to concentrate where staff
were so students wouldn't have to go between
offices trying to figure out who's where,"
Mironack said.
The space measures about 1,800 square
feet, Mironack said.
The Reitz Union Board of Managers will
choose the organizations that will stake a

I :" j, --'f. .


claim in the newly available spaces, he added.
"Usually at the start or early part of spring
semester, we will let folks know through
notices and advertisements that applications
for space are being accepted from the board,"
said Mironack, who is an adviser to the Reitz
Union Board of Managers.
On the applications, groups must state
their purpose, membership numbers and why
they need office space or a storage facility,
Mironack said.
The Space Committee reviews the applica-
tions and interviews the organizations before
space is allocated each year.
Groups that already have space are gener-


ally allowed to keep it, unless they fail to turn
in office logs about hours spent in the office or
fail to use it sufficiently as
deemed by the committee,
Mironack said.
S When complete, the new
offices will be equipped
S with desks, chairs and
S storage space large enough
Sto hold poster, boards and
other materials.
Really "Organizations will
actually be able to use that to store anything
for the big-to-small items that their group
uses, and it will alleviate a lot of the student


money that goes to renting off-campus storage
spaces," Johnson said.
The organizations will also receive comput-
ers that have been used for 1.5 years, he said.
The computers were previously used at the
Student Government computer lab, which will
be removed after a fall technology upgrade.
The new offices will help fulfill a constant
goal of SG to provide for students and
student organizations, which, if registered,
receive SG funding, said Kevin Reilly, Student
Body president.
"We have almost 800 organizations, so the
organizations always need more space," Reilly
said.

Shape up for fall fashion, and toss the shapeless shirts


Ah, back to school. Remember the days
when going back to school meant buying
a whole new wardrobe? Returning for an-
other academic year was the perfect reason
to go shopping and your perfect excuse for
spending money. "It's for school next year"
seemed to be one of the few replies that par-
ents actually accepted. In college, it's like no
one even cares.
Our budgets have constricted the amount
of shopping we can do, and college seems
to maximize our potential for laziness, so
we resort to wearing the same clothes year
after year in exchange for spending our time
and money catching up with TV on our TiVo
or playing Halo on our new Xbox. I under-
stand you're on a budget. And the phrase
"worthwhile shopping in Gainesville"
is pretty much an oxymoron. Trust me. I
know.
But despite these two very valid reasons,
there's no need to be lazy with your cloth-
ing choices. Many people say, "My clothing
choices are about who I am, and I don't need
to follow trends," and I can respect that. I
realize that Florida has its own style, such
as people wearing white after Labor Day
totally unacceptable in the north. But fol-
lowing fashion rules and trends or not, your
outfits still say a lot about who you are, so
T


why not give the world the best possible pic-
ture? Do or don't take my advice, but at the
very least, take this from my articles: Dress
well. Look your best. The extra effort that it
takes to look like you didn't just roll out of
bed is minimal, and it can make a world of
difference.
Now for those of you who are interested
in fashion, keep on reading, because I'm
going to tell you all about this fall's trends,
and how you can actually be in style with-
out spending too much money. The good
news? You probably have most of what's
"in" in your closet already. The three words
for the season repeat after me: classy, sexy
and manly.
My favorite thing about this fall? The
dress is back. I am a huge fan of dresses
because of their sheer simplicity and general
light weight. With the heat in Gainesville,
dresses and skirts are some of the best ar-
ticles to wear, and finally the fitted look is
back.
I was not a fan of the shapeless shirts and
dresses I saw this summer, and I'm glad to
see that the importance of the waist is being
recognized. A woman's shape is the empha-
sis again, but don't worry if you bought all
those flowy, non-clinging dresses this sum-
mer. Remember those belts you had last

year when the 80s were huge? Just take one
of those to your summer outfit, and POOF!
You're ready for the fall. A lot of menswear
is coming back, too, so be prepared to see
dresses that look like your boyfriend's but-
ton up and men's cardigans that seem to fit
you just right even though they could be
steps away from cross-dressing.

I understand you're on a
f' budget. And the phrase
"worthwhile shopping in
Gainesville" is pretty much
an oxymoron.
You'll see plaids and argyles
thrown in as well, and maybe a hint of
tartan. The key to all of it is not to overdo.
I like the menswear trend. I've been known
to steal my brother's sweatshirts on occa-
sion because they're just more comfortable,
but the key is to keep it simple. If you grab
a man's cardigan, pair it with a cute mini-
skirt. Wearing a shirt dress? Throw on some
heels. Basically, keep the XY chromosome
balance.
Popular colors you'll spot are purples
and grays with the occasional autumn stan-
dards such as oranges, reds, dark greens and
maybe even some bright pinks. Just try not to
match like you dressed in the dark. If you're

Though, Perez said no mat-

atmosphere, it was important
for them to play their best show
every time.
"Most of these people had
never seen us or never heard
of us, but we were used to the
Gainesville crowd," Perez said.
"We don't even have to talk to
them. They get excited even be-
fore we start playing."

Garfield said Umoja adver-

"So I get this call from this res-

this lady's like, 'We're not normal-

dy was shot ter with a nearly
ordered there trigger-happy
prior to this." "mountain man"
field and a lackluster
drummer jam session for
random people
living in a trailer
on house arrest in Asheville.
Perez said the members got
lost on their way to a house party
they were invited to play at, bare-
ly escaping a crazed man defend-
ing his land against trespassing.
"Most of the good stuff hap-
pened in between shows," he
said. "That's just hanging out,
you know, in other states. That's
just what's fun."
Most of the band members
were present at all the concerts,
with Sebastian Lopez on vocals
and guitar, Natalia Perez on
vocals, Michael Pedron on bass
guitar, Evan Hegarty on key-


board, David Borenstein on saxo-
phone, Adam Finkelman, Michael
Claytor, Scott Bihorel and Evan
Garfield on percussion and Micah
Shalom, Jason Prover, Keegan
Jerabek on trumpets. Former
band member Doug Fischer
joined the band on trombone for
its New York City show.
After the tour, the band mem-
bers split for the summer and re-
united within the past week.
"Going on tour is very hum-
bling because you learn to enjoy
yourself, even without the audi-


ence there," he said. "Even if
there's five people there because
those five people haven't heard
you, so it's still important for us
to make a good impression on
those people because that's the
only time they'll hear our band,
at least for a really long time."
Soon, Umoja will start com-
posing new music for a new
album and play in the Real Big
Deal Festival on Sept. 13. But
Garfield said the memories and
lessons from this first tour, such
as making a good impression,


even if you're just playing for
yourselves, will stick with the
members.
"Nobody is banking on this
band for a career or anything, but
I think a lot of people in the band
have the mentality that if some-
thing arises because it's a good
opportunity, people are kind of
willing to maybe enjoy this while
it lasts and try to like just go with
the flow of it," he said. "We're not
trying to get signed or anything
like that: We're just trying to
move with it."


wearing a purple and grey plaid skirt, stick
to simple tops like black or white. Don't
throw in another autumn color. Remember
you want to be classy, not wacky.
As for shoes my favorite of the fall have
to be equestrian boots. Sure, boots are use-
less in Florida until maybe November, and
Florida will always be the flip-flop state.
But I love these boots. Most of them are
flat, making them good for walking across
campus, and there's just something so classy
about them. You're going to see a lot more
practical shoes, such as gladiator sandals
and ballet flats, but my worthwhile splurge
of the season is the riding boot. I'm banking
on the fact that it will be one of those time-
less investments like they'll never double
as rain boots.
Those are my favorite trends of the fall,
and my opinion of what you will see the
most. Of course, jeans and a top remains the
easiest go-to outfit, but I challenge you to dig
through your closet or drawers to find some-
thing seasonal. A purple top, a cute dress,
switch it up a bit and see how you feel. Who
knows? You might slowly become a low-
budget fashionista. In terms of checking out
all the trends for the fall, I direct you here for

"Hamlet 2": A B movie or not a B movie?


DAVID STUZIN AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER


While watching "Hamlet 2," you
may be bombarded by a number
of questions that seem important.
"Who is Steve Coogan?" you might
find yourself thinking. "How did a
barrage of misfits in Tucson magi-
cally learn to act and sing?" and
"Why is the funniest joke about.
Elizabeth Shue, an actress who has
beenjlip on the blockbuster radar
since the late 1990s?" Though these
questions may seem minor, they'll
consistently make you question
the validity and overall merit of the
movie at large.
Not to say the film is bad, though
in fact, quite the contrary. As far as
being entertaining, this movie suc-
ceeds to a point, managing to stay
interesting despite its "Sister Act"
formula. Another plus is that it only
lasts a gloriously short 90 minutes,
a feat which seems too rare amid


the plethora of self-indulgent three-
hour crap-fests, which lack any edit-
ing whatsoever. The movie's real
failure is in the way it was adver-
tised and executed as a whole.
If you've seen the previews or
heard the buzz, you're expecting
an irreverent comedy, a "Waiting
For Guffman" meets "Anchorman."
However, seeing it with these pre-
conceptions will cause severe disap-
pointment.
The first hour, despite a few
forced jokes, is rather somber. The
movie opens with a detailed por-
trayal of the awful life of Coogan's
character, Dana Marschz, who suf-
fers abuse as a child, failure as an
actor, low-income employment, a
deteriorating marriage and to top
it off, the news that due to financial
problems, acting will be cut from
the high school curriculum.


The plot follows Marschz as he
enlists a ragtag group of "gangstah"
Latino students to help put on his
"revolutionary" musical sequel to
Hamlet in a last-ditch effort to save
drama.
Playing the character in a relat-
able and likeable way, Coogan
makes Marschz rather piti-
able. Unlike Ron Burgundy of
"Anchorman" or Corcky St. Clair
of "Guffman," Marschz is not a
vain, self-confident caricature but
rather a human to whose problems
we can actually relate, and that just
isn't funny.
If viewed as a comedy, the film
parodies two types of movies. One
is the "inspiring teacher" genre
"Mr. Holland's Opus," "Sister
Act," "Take the Lead" and two is
the "lets-put-on-a-show" genre,
reminiscent of the cheesy Broadway
productions of old. A few times the
parody comes through, but for the


most part, the writers break the
cardinal rule of parody becoming
serious. There are points at which
I wondered whether the movie was
poking fun at these genres or taking
part in them. Even when the movie
spoofs, the jokes are hardly strong
enough to stand alone and manifest
through the mostly slapstick humor
you've seen before. The comedy re-
ally doesn't improve until the last
30 minutes, when the movie com-
pletely changes.
The actual production of the play,
"Hamlet 2," within the movie makes
watching it completely worthwhile.
I'll limit spoilers. Suffice it to say it
somehow manages to mix Hamlet,
Jesus, light sabers and a time ma-
chine into one incredibly funny and
strangely profound musical. More
than that, it manages to fit in the
movie as a sunflower blossoming
from a sad manure.
In short, the movie isn't what


you'd expect. It's not something
you'll find on T-shirts and bumper
stickers or quoted by your room-
mates for years to come. But it's also
not a vain, preachy message. It's just
nice, short and simple the perfect
combination for a lazy Sunday af-
ternoon.


Embrace swamp sexcapades after drop/add week


STEPHANIE DUNN *
AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER
It's mid-August, and the bells of Century
Tower maybe a few e-bill notifications,
also are beckoning you to UF, a sultry
and sticky swamp where you become an
under-financed, oversexed version of your
at-home self.
There's a hotness factor that goes along
with being a Gator. If you're new, acquaint
yourself with it. If you're not, reintroduce
yourself. For us, being irresistible comes
as effortlessly as winning a few national
championships. So why not embrace
it? What's stopping you from letting go and
getting whatever and whoever you want?
And whatever and whoever are
everywhere, strange beings that somehow
slipped by your attention back home. One
pounds away on the treadmill beside \ou

ne-s them lining hall\va\ s. invadng every
musty crevice of Librar We;st and even
square inch of lawn space on the Plaza ot


the Americas, flocking to pool parties in
scantily-clad droves, gyrating with reckless
aggression in moist downtown dubs -it
seems that as summer winds down and hur-
ricanes wind up, Gainesville becomes over-
run with them. You try not to stare while
driving, lest you crash your Vespa. But ev-
erywhere you turn, they're
waiting for you. I'm talking Th
about achingly alluring col- hotne
lege coeds, one of the most
irresistible species of sexy tor that goe
known to man. Ironic, isn't with being

eryone knew everyone, you If you're n

laid back home, you were
probably either settling or unaware of your
potential. Admit it.
So without much warning, you're thrust
into a strange, new arena where more than
50,000 strangers, a collective mass of throb-
bing carnal energy, are after you, seeking,
well exactly what you're seeking -sex.

n/ tfie aenum


Lots of it with one disclaimer: claiming you
want a wholesome, meaningful relation-
ship. This is just a slippery slope into having
a wealth of quaking sex later, which is like
hitting the Staples "easy button."
Once at the university, your cunning
libido begins to play perverse Jedi-sex tricks
on your naive brain. While
ere's a standing in line at Starbucks,
.ss fac- you're certain that that saucy
little barista was giving you the
S along once over while foaming your
Gator. latte. Thoughts of what you
and the Starbucks Siren could
ew, ac- do with a bottle of sugar-free
self ", hazelnut syrup gives you
goose bumps.
Or there's that frat-tastic
stud who offers you his seat on
the bus. He rises with a smile. You sit with
a coy "thank you," and you're rewarded
with his plaid short-covered bulge swaying
inches from your face with each of the bus's
meandering turns. What is in actuality a
perfectly average-looking guy holding onto
the ceiling bar suddenly bears remarkable


semblance to Brad Pitt, hanging by his bulg-
ing biceps in the doorway in "Fight Club."
It's football season, and testosterone
levels are peaking. The temperature is ris-
ing, and inhibitions, along with panties, are
dropping rapidly. In the words of Lloyd
Christmas from "Dumb And Dumber,"
"The beer is flowing like wine, and you're
not getting any less hot." There are no cur-
fews, and after a few shots there won't be
any guilt, either.
This semester, have fun, but don't forget
to breathe and definitely don't forget to
wrap it up. Give your ravenous sex drive at
least until Drop/Add is over before jump-
ing into any pre-ordered extra-long twin
sheets. With your college career-beginning,
cruising along or sadly ending, the excite-
ment will make even the creepy teaching
assistant with the mushroom-like odor and
question-mark-shaped mole on his lip seem
attractive. Take it.from me, no matter where
you are, there's still plenty of time to make
the best mistakes of your life.

Stamper becomes surprise leader

0 HE WILL REPLACE THE INJURED BRANDON
SPIKES IN THE STARTING LINEUP.

By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

You could say Ryan Stamper is ready for his
close-up.
With preseason All-Southeastern Conference
linebacker Brandon Spikes likely to miss Saturday's
opener against Hawaii with a foot injury, one would
think the Gators would be concerned with how they
would replace a player who is expected to improve
upon a season in which he totaled 131 tackles.
Guess not.
"He's probably the most reliable person on our
football team," defensive coordinator Charlie Strong
said of Stamper. "It's so funny because you know
with Stamp what you're always going to get. He's
really solid and a good football player."
Stamper has only made one start during his ten-
ure as a Gator, but UF's confidence in him is high.
The redshirt junior was voted a team captain this
season and is well-versed in the Gators defensive
schemes, as he is one of the few players who know
all three of the Gators' linebacker positions.
It's no surprise that Stamper remains confident
entering his second career start.
"If (Spikes) can't go, and I get that opportunity,
that's just a great honor for me in the first game,"
Stamper said. "I'll be ready to go against Hawaii,
Miami, Tennessee, whoever. I've just got to be ready .
when my number is called." ,
Stamper would likely not only be a starter on
most other teams but a featured player.
The Jacksonville native has been content to con- -W
tribute on special teams and gain the respect of his
teammates, even if most fans are unaware of his
contributions. Andrew Stanflll/Allgator Staff

UF FOOTBALL.

Harvin, Spikes to miss opening game


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

What had long been suspected was
confirmed after the Gators' practice
Wednesday: Wide receiver Percy Harvin
and linebacker Brandon Spikes will not
play in Saturday's season opener.
Harvin has been recovering from heel
surgery, and Spikes' injured right foot
is still bothering him, UF coach Urban
Meyer said.
Meyer denied the Gators were resting
the two simply because Hawaii should be
a pushover.


"There's no holding anyone (back),"
Meyer said. "We're playing a team that
lent defense and take
care of the football on
Saturday."
Meyer was un-
certain if Spikes and
Harvin would be
able to play on Sept.
6 against Miami, and
Harvin said their availability
would be determined
next week in practice.
Sophomore offensive lineman Maurice
Hurt also missed practice and will be


unavailable Saturday with a shoulder
stinger.
Meyer expects senior offensive line-
man Jim Tartt and sophomore center
Maurkice Pouncey to play against
Hawaii. After missing Tuesday's practice
with a staph infection, backup quarter-
back John Brantley did practice with the
team Wednesday.
WILSON TO 0-LINE: Junior Ronnie Wilson,
currently a defensive lineman, has moved
back to his old position on the offensive
line, defensive line coach Dan McCarney
said.

Hardships rob


former player-


of '08 season

One of the toughest parts about
becoming an adult is the real-
ization that life doesn't always
have those fairy tale endings you read
about growing up.
In fact, life is filled with moments of
tragedy just ask junior Alli Cecchini.
(Full disclosure: Cecchini was just
hired by the Alligator's advertising
department a few days ago. I had fio
idea until Wednesday night, well after I
decided to write tlis column.)
Cecchini was the backup setter for
the UF volleyball team the past two
seasons, behind Angle McGinnis, one of
the best setters
ever to grace
the O'Connell
Center floor.
This was
the year ,for
Cecchini to
Phil Kegler take the helm.
Phil on the Hill But she won't
pkegler@alligator.org be on the court
Friday night
in the season opener against Alabama
Birmingham.
As Cecchini's moment in the spot-
light approached, she suddenly wanted
to duck into the darkness.
"There were some days I wanted to
just sit in my room and be by myself
and not be around people," she says.
It's hard to blame her.


Her sister passed away during her
senior year of high school. Her best
friend, Ashley Slonina, was tragi-
cally lost in a motorcycle accident in
October.
Alli's parents even moved to
Gainesville part-time to help her get
through it all.
On March 7, her world came crash-
ing down again.
Coach Mary Wise called the junior
into her office and told her that her
38-year-old brother had passed away,
leaving her 14-year-old nephew with-
out a daddy.
"My mom didn't want me "to be
in the car driving or be by myself, so
she called Mary and told her first,"

Former Gator Green


signs with Spanish club

NCAA national championship game on April 2, 2007 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.


E HE SPENT THREE SEASONS AT
UF AND WON TWO NCAA TITLES.

By MIKE DIFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

Taurean Green doesn't speak much
Spanish, and that may be a problem.
The former UF point guard confirmed
Wednesday that he has agreed to play
for the Spanish club CAI Zaragoza.
Green is in the process of negotiating
what is believed to be a one-year deal
with the team.
He would not confirm the specifics of
the contract.
"I feel like this is the best move for
me right now," he said in a phone in-
terview.
Green said he is excited to spend
some time overseas, and he views the
move as a positive step for his career.
"The competition is tough. The guys
playing in this league are good players,"
he said.
Green points to Spain's recent
Olympic success as proof of the league's
talent level.
CAI Zaragoza was promoted to the
top flight of Spanish basketball after
winning the second-division title last
season.
Zaragoza will now face off with well-
known clubs such as Barcelona and Real
Madrid in Spanish basketball's premier


league.
Green said he is not worried about his
inability to speak the native language,
and that he doesn't think he will have a
hard time adjusting to life in Spain.
"I love Spanish food," he said. "So
I'm excited about that."
Green slipped to the seconibound
of the 2007 NBA Draft, where he was
selected No. 52 overall by the Portland
Trailblazers, after leaving UF early along
with former teammates Corey Brewer, Al

Noah.
While the rest of his
UF teammates contrib-
uted heavily in their
rookie years, Green
.' spent most of his at
the end of the bench.
Green Actually, several dif-
ferent benches.
Since draft day, the 6-foot guard
has spent time with the Blazers'
Development League team, the Idaho
Stampede, the Denver Nuggets and
most recently the New York Knicks.
Despite making more than $400,000
in his rookie year, Green only averaged
1.6 points per game and struggled to
make it off the bench in both Portland
and Denver.
Green, who was cut by the Knicks on
July 28, said he hopes a year overseas
will help showcase his talent for NBA
teams.

I I Wilson switches from D-line to O-line


STAMPER, from page 25

And that is the reason why he
was voted a team captain.
"Stamper is just one of those
guys who you can always count
on to be there, he'll never let you
down," sophomore linebacker
I"andon Hicks said. "Spikes is
one of those dudes who is real en-
ergetic. (Stamper is) not as vocal
as Spikes and he won't be hooting
and hollering, but he'll always be
there.
"I think (being voted a captain)
helped him feel like he was in a
better position to show what he
can do."
Coach Urban Meyer has little
fear Stamper will be able to ad-
equately replace Spikes in the
meantime.
Meyer has mentioned Stamper
as one of the players who has been
the most impressive during the
preseason, and his unselfishness
has stood out.
"Stamper is a very physical, ac-
countable guy," Meyer said. "He's
one of those guys who works his


tail off, and he starts on the punt
team, which tells you how much I
think of him."
Meyer has always said how
iniportant he feels special teams
are, so being on the punt team is
a serious responsibility.
Stamper fan-
cies himself as
a guy who has
been able to
maximize his
athletic abil-
ity by being a
Meyer student of the
game.
He has played linebacker sinc6
his Pop Warner days and learned
all three linebacker positions in
the Gators defense to make him-
self a more versatile player.
It's something that young play-
ers could learn from Stamper.
"A lot of people think it's
talentwise, but it's not talent,"
Stamper said of being able to play
multiple positions.
"A lot of people have talent,
but they've just got to learn to
play on the college level, get the
plays down and play fast."


NOTES, from page 25


Wilson played left guard during the Gators'
2006 run to the national championship, but
was kicked off the team in April 2007 for dis-
ciplinary reasons. He rejoined the team this
summer,
HOME COOKING: When asked if he would trav-
el as far as Hawaii for a road game, or even to
a state like California or Texas, Meyer's answer
,was straightforward.
"No. Not with our schedule," Meyer said.


PHIL, from page 25

Cecchini said. "(Wise) was
there through all of it, she
was crying with me when
I found out. She was really
understanding."
In the background of such
tragedy, Cecchini was also in
spring practice, fighting to
live up to the incredible bar
set by McGinnis.
"I can't explain how much
pressure there was on me to
do well, and I was honestly
playing awful, horrible,"
Cecchini said. "I just realized
that it was really selfish to be
on this team and not be able
to mentally be there all the
way."
Her parents were forced


"Have you seen our schedule?"
The farthest UF will travel from Gainesville

STADIUM SHAPING UP: Wednesday brought
more signs of football's imminent arrival in

s50-yard line had been stenciled
in along with the end zones and
the 25-yard-line logos.

to stay in California full-time
after her brother passed, and
Alli realized she wanted to be
home more, which would re-
quire her to leave the team.
Alli planned to tell Wise
after the spring season, be-
cause she laughingly admits
she really wanted to play in
the first-ever Southeastern
Conference beach volleyball
tournament.
But Wise could tell, calling
Cecchini into her office the
week before the tournament.
"(Wise) was like, 'Look,
what are we going to do about
you next year? Your head's
obviously not in it. We need
to sit down and figure out a
game plan for you, what's go-
ing to work out for you.'"
Alli couldn't hold it in any
longer.


"I just felt like I'd be ly-
ing to sit there and pretend
like, 'Yeah, let's make a game
plan,' so I was just like, 'Mary,
I decided I'm not playing next
year.'"

Her coach and teammates
were shocked, and former
roommate Elyse Cusack es-
pecially. But the most impor-
tant thing was their support,
which Cecchini cherishes.
Alli will be in the stands
for Friday night's season
opener, yelling for her former
teammates, who she talks to
nearly every day. She knows
she'll ,miss playing, but life
forced her to make this sad
choice.
Because sometimes things
really don't end Happily Ever
After.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2008 Students partake in monopolizing record Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff Lindsay Dusi, a UFjunior, raises her fist in celebration Wednesday at the Reitz Union while Jake Pease, a UF senior, looks on. They were attempting to set a record for the most people playing MONOPOLY worldwide. By BRETT DALY Alligator Writer Pass Go. Collect one world record. Twenty-six people gathered at the Reitz Union on Wednesday morning to play MONOPOLY and helped UF go down in the record books one more time. They participated in an attempt to set a Guinness World Record for the most people playing MONOPOLY simultaneously worldwide and made history in the process. The event, hosted by the Public Relations Student Society of America, celebrated the release of the new "MONOPOLY Here and Now: The World Edition" and gave UF students the chance to come together to share a favorite pastime. "This is just another way that UF is putting its mark on the world," said Christina Baez, treasurer for the group and organizer of the event. "We're not just doing this in sports, academics and partying. We're doing it in board games, too." To be officially counted by Guinness, at least 25 people needed to play the game for an hour. UF just made the cut. For Lindsay Dusi, an animal sciences junior, the event was an opportunity to play a game she enjoys, get free food and possibly add another dog game piece to her small collection. "I'm a big kid at heart. I love board games." Lindsay Dusi animal science junior She said she tries to take the little dog piece from every game of MONOPOLY she plays.

Most county representatives came as delegates to the convention, which ends today. Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan said this is the first time she's attended the convention as a Florida delegate, though she went to the 2004 convention as an honored guest. She said Tuesday that one of the most inspiring moments of the convention so far was Michelle Obama's speech. "I was completely galvanized by Michelle Obama," Hanrahan said. "She was so cool under pressure and just such a brilliant woman." Michael Heaney, an assistant professor of political science at UF, is in Denver as an observer and researcher. Heaney said he is conducting surveys to determine differences between the Democratic and Republican National Conventions. Results in the survey comparing delegates for Hillary Clinton and delegates for Obama have shown a rift in the Democratic Party Clino despite calls for party unity, he said. Aside from meeting former Sen. George McGovern, Heaney said the most exciting part of the convention was people cooperating with his study. Other delegates included Lizzie Jenkins, president of the Democratic Black Caucus SEE DNC, PAGE 10 Third floor to expand E REITZ WILL EXPAND TO HOUSE MORE STUDENT GROUPS. By JACQUELYN WEINER Alligator Writer If there's one thing students and UF staff can agree on, it's that there isn't enough space in the Reitz Union. "We're outgrowing the Reitz Union," said Jordan Johnson, chairman of the UF Student Senate Budget and Appropriations Commnittee. "It is a central location for students, whether they want to grab a bite to eat or do business, and the No. 1 struggle that I have had in Student Government is being able to find sufficient office space for student organizations because we have so many," Johnson said. So when the former Office of Student Activities was moved to the north side of the hallway, the prime, newly vacant space on the third floor of the Reitz Union caught Johnson's eye. "I knew it was something we had to jump on," Johnson said.

4, ALLIGATOR 0 THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2008 One Less Car Challenge to kick off in October THE CHALLENGE ENCOURAGES DRIVERS TO USE BICYCLES. By LAUREN BAKER Alligator Writer For some Gators, the days of a singlepassenger commute are coming to a close. UF is encouraging students, faculty and staff to pledge to take an alternative method of commuting to campus by participating in the One Less Car Challenge, which starts Oct. 17. The day marks the start of a semesterlong commitment by participants to limit their car use. Those interested can make individual commitments, but Anna Prizzia, outreach coordinator of UF's Office of Sustainability, said she hopes student organizations will create teams. Starting Oct. 17, participants can log in and track the average number of miles they and their teammates travel a day, a count that will continue until Dec. 17. Aside from commuting to campus via a bicycle, Prizzia said alternative transportation includes scooters; GreenRide, a carpooling service; and Zipcar, a car-sharing program. "We know that alternative transportation isn't one-size-fits-all," Prizzia said. "We're just hoping they find a mode that works for them." Registration for the event is ongomig and will continue until Sept. 17, according to a UF news release. An alternative transportation fair will kick off the low-fuel festivities on Oct. 16. At the fair, RTS staff will be present to discuss routes and the new Gator Locator Global Positioning System. Prizzia said RTS may add more convenient routes for 15% Discount. Must commit to at least 5 of the 8 Kickoff editions. Deadline for this special offer is Wednesday, October 8, 2008. No TGIF discounts apply to these dates. UF staff and faculty soon. Students can also seek tips and demonstrations from local bike organizations, including Kickstand and the Student Government Bike Repair station, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the Reitz Union North Lawn, according to the release. On Oct. 17, there will be a celebration from 10 a.m. to noon, which will feature drawings for door prizes, including a digital camera, Prizzia said. The event will also include a car versus bicycle race by two UF employees who are sent to run errands around town. "Every year that we've done it, the bike has won," Prizzia said. "The car needed almost double the On time the bike-took." UaffIpuS Prizzia said she hopes the participants' pledges become habits by the end of the challenge Dec. 17. "It's an opportunity to practice, and practice makes perfect, you know?" she said. Zeke Zylberberg, a UF anthropology and religion senior, has not yet committed to the program, but he already bicycles about three miles to campus for class anyway. For Zylberberg, *his conimitment to biking began when he trained with friends for a 4,500-mile bicycle ride that stretched from Austin, Texas, to Anchorage, Alaska. He said biking in a group gives new cyclists an advantage because they can learn from veterans. He said students who think they lack the time to switch to bicycling may find bicycling to be more enjoyable and faster than driving a car. Not everybody needs to bicycle, but everyone can make a difference, he said.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2008 K ALLIGATOR, 5 UPD focuses on escape for crises POLICE CREATED VIDEO IN LIGHT OF CAMPUS SHOOTINGS. By RACHEL ARROYO Alligator Writer Professor Liviu Librescu chose to stand up to the Virginia Tech gunman that went on a shooting rampage in one of the school's lecture halls in April 2007. He blocked his classroom door, allowing time for students to escape. In light of such campus shootings, universities are taking measures to prepare students and faculty for potential crisis situations. About 500 universities have chosen to purchase "Shots Fired -When Lightning Strikes," a survival-training video created by former U.S. State Department officials and FBI agents, said Randy Spivey, executive director for the Center for Personal Protection and Safety. The center is a national organization that teaches workplace violence prevention and travel safety. The training video has been labeled controversial because "taking out the shooter" is one of the last-ditch methods taught, Spivey said. "As a very last resort, you may be in a situation where you are face-toface with the shooter and takeout is the only option," Spivey said. In that case, he said people should use whatever tools they have available, be it a cell phone or a cup of hot coffee. "As a very last resort, you may be in a situation where you are face-to-face with the shooter and takeout is the only option." Randy Spivey executive director for the Center for Personal Protection and Safety "You're not traumatizing people by providing training," he said. While UF hasn't purchased the student version of "Shots Fired," the University Police Department does use a similar program titled "Active Shooter," said UIPD Capt. Jeff Holcomb. The presentation emphasizes escape methods as well as putting something between yourself and the shooter, he said. "You don't seek the active aggressor out," Holcomb said, while stressing escape as the first priority for those in crisis situations. While the presentation may not focus as much on confronting the shooter, it does include disarming tactics. "If you are where the shooter starts firing, your best option may be to disarm the shooter," Holcomb said. Another aspect of "Active Shooter" that Holcomb said he likes is the question-and-answer session, which allows him to address various scenarios on a case-by-case basis. Holcomb has been delivering the hour-long PowerPoint presentation to staff and groups such as Department of Recreational Sports and the InterResidence Hall Association for more than a year, he said. The groups usually range in size from 120 to 150. While the presentation hasn't been delivered to the general student body, Holcomb said that anyone is welcome to call and request it. Lindsey Nix, facility manager at the Student Recreation and Fitness Center, underwent the "Active Shooter" program as part of her fall training about a year ago. She said she thought the emphasis of the program is to move everyone to a secure location, but she didn't feel the video urged people to take a stance against an aggressor. As for offering the presentation to the general student body, Nix said she thought it should be reserved for staff to combat ineffectiveness and a potential panic situation. "I think they should show a select few people rather than everybody," she said. "If too many people know, it won't be effective." UF scores high green grade SIERRA CLUB RANKED SCHOOLS FOR ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY EFFORTS. UF ranks No. 7 in a list of the country's "cool" schools. Why the cool ranking? Being environmentally friendly. The top 10 list of schools is in the latest issue of Sierra, the magazine of the Sierra Club, the largest environmental organization in the U.S. Dedee DeLongpr6-Johnston, director of UF's Office of Sustainability, said it's an honor for UF to be the only Florida school on the list. Middlebury College in Vermont is No. 1. In the rankings, UF is lauded for recovering 40 percent of its waste and its high volume of ecofriendly student organizations. DeLongpre-Johnston said she's been working to bring down UF's $40 million electric bill each year. "Forty percent of it is turning off the lights and unplugging things at the end of the day," she said. The Sierra Club knocked UF's score to 86 for a lack of open or sustainable investing policies. Members of Students for a Democratic Society, or SDS, protested several times last year to make UF's investments public. The UF Foundation is a private entity that oversees UF's $1.2 billion endowment fund. -ILEANA MORALES

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2008 Editorial Flight, not fight UF says we make better runners than fighters Throughout our precious years of existence, we have learned to appreciate the concept of self-preservation. Pain sucks, and that's that. There's no reason why protecting ourselves shouldn't be at the top of our list of personal priorities. That's why the Editorial Board is torn on today's issue. Former officials from the U.S. Department of State and FBI created an if-something-goes-down-then-here'swhat-you-do video for students and faculty who find themselves in the line of fire on campus. The instructional video is available to universities for purchase, and 500 universities nationwide have already picked up a copy. UF is not on that list. Don't worry just yet. Yes, your school still loves you and cares about your safety. They just haven't bought the video because the University Police Department already has an in-case-of-emergency video. The difference is that the federally distributed video teaches tactics for a face-to-face confrontation with an assailant, whereas UPD prefers that we choose our flight reflex rather than give into our urge to fight, except as a last resort. Here's where we can't quite make up our minds. We would like to think that, when presented with a deadly-situation,.we would have a primary option besides desperately searching for an escape route because that may not be the best reaction given the circumstances. Instead, the v ideo recommends that we employ a physical defense only when given an opportunity to disarm the shooter. Well, that sounds all fine and dandy, but there are holes in that kind of logic. How the hell would we disarm the gunman? Obviously, if some maniac busts down a classroom door wielding a rifle straight from Rainbow Six, we aren't about to try to disarm him. We're jumping lecterns and sliding between desks to get the hell out of the nearest window. The Video instructs us to utilize our surroundings. If we're backed into a corner and staring down a gun barrel, a hot cup of coffee is the last thing that we would think to use as a weapon. MacGyver may have been able to take down an armed assailant with only a spiral notebook, a mechanical pencil and his shoelaces, but the.Editorial Board lacks his level of improvisational training. We understand UF doesn't want to show a video that may give its students any ideas about how to be the hero when lives are at stake. After all, nobody wants a high-strung undergrad on a steady balance of Red Bull and insomnia to spring to action when a door slams too loudly, causing him to revert to his video training and bludgeon an unsuspecting freshman with his organic chemistry textbook. Maybe we're misunderstanding the situation because we haven't seen the video. Still, the thought of turning to a cell phone or a flimsy used textbook to save our lives isn't exactly comforting. Students' safety should always be a top priority, so we're happy that UPD has some sort of plan for us, but it isn't hard to doubt the effectiveness of random classroom items against a crazy with a gun. a l the i adepen ext oria Jessica DaSilva EDITOR Hilary Lehman, Ken Schwencke MANAGING EDITORS Adam Wynn OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinion While the UPD has a training video emphasizing that in the event of a school shooting students should avoid a direct confrontation with the gunman, the FBI has released a training video that takes a different approach: Guest cOlUmn Nine-year-old pitch A musician may win an award, an academic receives a grant and an athlete finds him or herself glorified by fans and the media. Jericho Scott, undoubtedly the best pitcher in his New Haven, Conn., league, received his accolades in the form of banishment from the sport of baseball for being "too good." Scott is 9-years-old. Accused of throwing the ball "too hard" and "frightening" opponents with his 40-mph fastball, league officials requested Scott move to another position other than pitcher. Giving second base a try for one game, Scott found himself longing to return to the place on the field where he had led his team to an 8-0 record, on pace for the playoffs. Who can blame the child for wanting back the success he had found through pitching? Failing to heed the warning of league officials, Scott took the mound in the subsequent game, leading to the opposing team's vacating the field and forfeiting the game. As a result of Scott returning to his natural position, officials informed Scott's team that they could no longer participate in the league and would be disbanded. Let me make this clear: Scott has never hit another batter while pitching this season. He may be fast, but he was throwing the ball accurately. Furthermore, Scott is not another Danny Almonte, a kid with a forged birth certificate who tried to beat the Little League system in 2001. Scott is simply a 9-yearold boy in an 8to 10-year-old league. Why must adults deny this young boy the opportunity to play baseball because he was blessed with natural ability? While at first glance Scott's targeting by league offiI er unfairly ousted cials stemmed out of concern for the safety of his peers, there have been grumbles that there may be ulterior motives to his expulsion. -JPrior to the start of the season, Scott was reportedly offered a Daniel Seco spot on the roster of the defendletters@alligator.org ing league champions. He rejected the invitation to instead play on a team sponsored by a local gym, which leads me to assume that he probably just wanted to have fun playing with his friends The sponsor of the championship team is, in fact, the employer of one of the league officials who had a hand in disbanding Scott's team. How sad! Adults perpetuating the age-old adage that baseball was made for kids, and grown-ups only screw it up. Overaggressive mothers and fathers consumed with winning as they live vicariously through their children and ruin the experience for all. Why can't these individuals get over themselves and fulfill their duties as positive role models for their children rather than setting poor examples that their kids will surely adopt? We often hear stories about those who are undeserving being rewarded for whom they know rather than what they've accomplished. Scott is the antithesis of the child who makes the all-star team simply because his or her father is the coach. We should be celebrating the success of a young, budding star rather than obsessing over the winning and losing that so often robs the fun of Little League Baseball.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Obama unique candidate Barack Obama is to your generation what John F. Kennedy was to mine. The youth and vitality, the charm and disarming smile, the sense of humor and powerful intellect -these are qualities shared by these men. We must get beyond our prejudices and vote our hearts, minds and the issues. We know when we hear Obama speak that he is inspirational -and perhaps destined for greatness. His messages of hope and change come when we need them most, with our critical economic woes and our endless $10 billion-a-month war in Iraq. He is the kind of pragmatic leader needed to unite the country as we tackle the problems: ending the war; energy independence using renewable resources; investing in American industry and American jobs; making college more affordable; healthcare for all; trade agreements that benefit American workers; and sound economic and tax policies that reverse our country's fall toward economic ruin. Unlike McCain, Obama is a unique candidate, not beholden to lobbyists, corporate America and the mega-rich. We must seize this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to elect this special and gifted man to the presidency. Cliff Cleland, member of the executive conmrnittee of Dekalb County Democrats in Dekalb, Ill. Senator stands by referendum It is unfortunate that the Alligator's Editorial Board does not share the same excitement I do over the Thanksgiving Travel Holiday, but I guess I have six weeks until the elections to try to change this. As stated at Tuesday's meeting, students' passage of the ballot question in October would not magically implement this travel holiday. UF, like any government institution, has a huge bureaucracy, and things take a long time. Over the summer, we spent a great deal of time speaking with members of five different administrative offices here at U. All the feedback was positive, and this project is quite viable. With the question appearing on the fall ballot, students now have the opportunity to have input on their college experiences. Isn't this what Student Government and voting is supposed to be about? Our voice matters, and with a positive vote, we can enact this change. We can see this through other ballot questions in the past. A Moe's has arrived on campus after a ballot question just like this one -as reported on the cover of Wednesday's Alligator -and a renewable energy fee is in the works. We all have the ability to make a difference at UF when we head to the polls in October, especially when it comes to the Thanksgiving Travel Holiday Frank Bracco, UF student senator.

10, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2008 Hearing for online voting moved up N UF WAS SUED ON FEB. 22. Developments in the lawsuit between a student group and UF about online voting in Student Govermment elections may bring a hearing date closer. Students for Online Voting, or SOLVe, sued UF on Feb. 22 after the UF Supreme Court ruled that putting an online-voting amendment on the SG ballot would be unconstitutional. The student court said online voting could interfere with SG's ability to prevent voter coercion. The First District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee granted SOLVe's request to expedite the case in July. Joe Little, a UF adjunct gStudent law professor and lawyer Goverlmliem for SOLVe, said though the request was granted, it does not offer a time frame for the final decision. Court files show that UF is represented by David M. Delaney and Elizabeth S. McKillop, of Dell Graham, a local firm concentrated in defense of civil lawsuits, along with attorneys from UF's Office of the General Counsel. Tommy Jardon, SOLVe president and UF law student, said Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president for Student Affairs, asked him to consider creating another committee to look into the online-voting issue. "A very small and very idealistic side of me thinks something still may, may come out of it," Jardon said. -ILEANA MORALES Game attracted 26 players MONOPOLY, from page 1 her piece while playing Wednesday and received another dog for her collection after getting a free game of MONOPOLY at the event. Eight games were set up for the players, which included the classic version of MONOPOLY and the new World Edition that uses debit cards instead of paper money and features 22 cities from around the world on the game board. Robert Commerford, a nuclear engineering junior, had the chance to play the new edition of the game but said he wasn't impressed. "It's very similar to the other game," he said. "There's not enough new about it to buy it." He was more impressed with helping set a world record and said it's just one more way to get Gainesville in the record books. The organization found out about the Guinness World Record attempt from its former treasurer, who now has a job with a public relations firm working with Hasbro, the makers of MONOPOLY, Baez said. For helping Hasbro promote its new MONOPOLY product, the group received a donation for its organization, she said. Baez said she was happy they succeeded in recruiting enough people to be included in the world record, but she was unsure of when Guinness would officially recognize the worldwide record attempt. According to the Hasbro Web site, MONOPOLY world records are also held in the longest game played in a tree house, which lasted 286 hours, and the longest game played in a bathtub, which lasted 99 hours. Now, 26 MONOPOLY enthusiasts from UF can join the record books as well.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 11 Students still waiting for tickets with online system 0 STUDENTS HAVE TO WAIT IN VIRTUAL LINE. By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Staff Writer pkegier@alIigator.org Students looking to obtain tickets to Saturday's football season opener against Hawaii will hang up their old method tonight in favor of waiting online. Unlike in years past, when students called the Gator Athletic Ticket Order Request System, known as G.A.T.O.R.S., new Ticketmaster software purchased by the University Athletic Association will allow students to log on to a Web site to purchase any additional tickets. However, don't expect. to be rid of those long waits on hold just yet. The system still has some kinks after it was first used Aug. 18 when student tickets went on sale for the Tennessee, Arkansas and Vanderbilt away games. Student Sen. Jordan Johnson, who chaired the UAA ticket distribution committee last fall, said he sat and watched as his roommates, who logged on 20 minutes after he did, scored tickets. Johnson said he quit trying to get tickets of his own after waiting for an hour and a half. "That was probably the most common occurrence I had heard from other people, too," he said. Nic Fischer, a UF mechanical engineering senior, went online to buy away game tickets and didn't even know if he had gotten them or not because an error message popped up after he entered his billing information. Fischer said he called the UAA customer service phone number listed on the Web site but only got recorded messages that it was past business hours. He called the next day, however, and was notified he received a ticket. Fischer's biggest concern is the fact that students who are waiting in the queue have no idea where they stand in line. "As far as reducing the wait times, it's shorter, but Student it's still not as great as Life it could be because you could be potentially waiting forever and not know about it," he said. Mark Gajda, UAA assistant athletic director for ticket operations, said there will be live operators available tonight to help students that have problems with the online system, Johnson's committee made the recommendation for a universal ticketing Web site to the UAA last fall, but Gajda said the UAA had been considering the option for four or five years. UAA staff took visits to numerous places around Florida, including Disney's Wide World of Sports, with the most important visit being Pennsylvania State University, which was one of the first to implement Ticketmaster technology, Gajda said. Bud Meredith, PSU's director of ticket operations, said his school has used the system for seven years now, and he couldn't be happier. New Reitz offices to reduce need for student-funded storage space EXPANSION, from page 1 Activities Center to become the new Center for Student Activities and Involvement, said Mike Mironack, director of operations for the Reitz Union. "The goal was to concentrate where staff were so students wouldn't have to go between offices trying to figure out who's where," Mironack said. The space measures about 1,800 square feet, Mironack said. The Reitz Union Board of Managers will choose the organizations that will stake a claim in the newly available spaces, he added. "Usually at the start or early part of spring semester, we will let folks know through notices and advertisements that applications for space are being accepted from the board," said Mironack, who is an adviser to the Reitz Union Board of Managers. On the applications, groups must state their purpose, membership numbers and why they need office space or a storage facility, Mironack said. The Space Committee reviews the applications and interviews the organizations before space is allocated each year. Groups that already have space are generally allowed to keep it, unless they fail to turn in office logs about hours spent in the office or fail to use it sufficiently as deemed by the committee, Mironack said. When complete, the new offices will be equipped with desks, chairs and storage space large enough to hold poster boards and Reilly other materials. "Organizations -will actually be able to use that to store anything for the big-to-small items that their group uses, and it will alleviate a lot of the student money that goes to renting off-campus storage spaces," Johnson said. The organizations will also receive computers that have been used for 1.5 years, he said. The computers were previously used at the Student Government computer lab, which will be removed after a fall technology upgrade. The new offices will help fulfill a constant goal of SG -to provide for students and student organizations, which, if registered, receive SG funding, said Kevin Reilly, Student Body president. "We have almost 800 organizations, so the organizations always need more space," Reilly said. Do you have what it takes to be one of the best nurses in the world?

Despite the tribulations and mountain-like bumps along the way, Garfield said he and his bandmates thought the tour went well. He said Umoja played a soldout show at the Knitting Factory in New York City, which more than made up for the money spent on the tour. Yet Perez and Garfield agreed that the best show for the band had to be Boone, N.C.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 13 fashion Shape up for fall fashion, and toss the shapeless shirts Ah, back to school. Remember the days when going back to school meant buying a whole new wardrobe? Returning for another academic year was the perfect reason to go shopping and your perfect excuse for spending money. "It's for school next year" seemed to be one of the few replies that parents actually accepted. In college, it's like no one even cares. Our budgets have constricted the amount of shopping we can do, and college seems to maximize our potential for laziness, so we resort to wearing the same clothes year after year in exchange for spending our time and money catching up with TV on our TiVo or playing Halo on our new Xbox. I understand you're on a budget. And the phrase "worthwhile shopping in Gainesville" is pretty much an oxymoron. Trust me. I know. But despite these two very valid reasons, there's no need to be lazy with your clothing choices. Many people say, "My clothing choices are about who I am, and I don't need to follow trends," and I can respect that. I realize that Florida has its own style, such as people wearing white after Labor Day totally unacceptable in the north. But following fashion rules and trends or not, your outfits still say a lot about who you are, so why not give the world the best possible picture? Do or don't take my advice, but at the very least, take this from my articles: Dress well. Look your best. The extra effort that it takes to look like you didn't just roll out of bed is minimal, and it can make a world of difference. Now for those of you who are interested in fashion, keep on reading, because I'm going to tell you all about this fall's trends, and how you can actually be in style without spending too much money. The good news? You probably have most of what's "in" in your closet already. The three words for the season repeat after me: classy, sexy and manly. My favorite thing about this fall? The dress is back. I am a huge fan of dresses because of their sheer simplicity and general light weight. With the heat in Gainesville, dresses and skirts are some of the best articles to wear, and finally the fitted look is back. I was not a fan of the shapeless shirts and dresses I saw this summer, and I'm glad to see that the importance of the waist is being recognized. A woman's shape is the emphasis again, but don't worry if you bought all those flowy, non-clinging dresses this summer. Remember those belts you had last REGINA STUZIN AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER year when the 80s were huge? Just take one of those to your summer outfit, and POOF! You're ready for the fall. A lot of menswear is coming back, too, so be prepared to see dresses that look like your boyfriend's button up and men's cardigans that seem to fit you just right even though they could be steps away from cross-dressing. I understand you're on a (( budget. And the phrase "worthwhile shopping in Gainesville" is pretty much an oxymoron. You'll see plaids and argyles thrown in as well, and maybe a hint of tartan. The key to all of it is not to overdo. I like the menswear trend. I've been known to steal my brother's sweatshirts on occasion because they're just more comfortable, but the key is to keep it simple. If you grab a man's cardigan, pair it with a cute miniskirt. Wearing a shirt dress? Throw on some heels. Basically, keep the XY chromosome balance. Popular colors you'll spot are purples and grays with the occasional autumn standards such as oranges, reds, dark greens and maybe even some bright pinks. Just try not to match like you dressed in the dark. If you're Twelve-member band crams into two cars, U-Haul to tour the East Coast UMOJA from page 12 town." Though, Perez said no matter the size of the crowd or the atmosphere, it was important for them to play their best show every time. "Most of these people had never seen us or never heard of us, but we were used to the Gainesville crowd," Perez said. "We don't even have to talk to them. They get excited even before we start playing." And as for the low points, Garfield and Perez joked as they elaborated on the band's so-called horror stories.

"So I Googled it, and somebody was shot and murdered there like a year prior to this," Garfield said. Saxophonist and UF senior David Borenstein said the owner of the Calypso also almost refused to let Umoja's friends in because of the venue's 30-and-over age restriction. "In an effort to curb violence in their club, they made it a 30-andup club!" Borenstein laughed. Despite the slaying, Garfield said the band decided to play at the Calypso.

Former band member Doug Fischer joined the band on trombone for its New York City show. After the tour, the band members split for the summer and reunited within the past week. "Going on tour is very humbling because you learn to enjoy yourself, even without the audience there," he said. "Even if there's five people there because those five people haven't heard you, so it's still important for us to make a good impression on those people because that's the only time they'll hear our band, at least for a really long time." Soon, Umoja will start composing new music for a new album and play in the Real Big Deal Festival on Sept. 13. But Garfield said the memories and lessons from this first tour, such as making a good impression, even if you're just playing for yourselves, will stick with the members. "Nobody is banking on this band for a career or anything, but I think a lot of people in the band have the mentality that if something arises because it's a good opportunity, people are kind of willing to maybe enjoy this while it lasts and try to like just go with the flow of it," he said. "We're not trying to get signed or anything like that: We're just trying to move with it." wearing a purple and grey plaid skirt, stick to simple tops like black or white. Don't throw in another autumn color. Remember you want to be classy, not wacky. As for shoes my favorite of the fall have to be equestrian boots. Sure, boots are useless in Florida until maybe November, and Florida will always be the flip-flop state. But I love these boots. Most of them are flat, making them good for walking across campus, and there's just something so classy about them. You're going to see a lot more practical shoes, such as gladiator sandals and ballet flats, but my worthwhile splurge of the season is the riding boot. I'm banking on the fact that it will be one of those timeless investments like they'll never double as rain boots. Those are my favorite trends of the fall, and my opinion of what you will see the most. Of course, jeans and a top remains the easiest go-to outfit, but I challenge you to dig through your closet or drawers to find something seasonal. A purple top, a cute dress, switch it up a bit and see how you feel. Who knows? You might slowly become a lowbudget fashionista. In terms of checking out all the trends for the fall, I direct you here for a complete list: http://teentaffy.com/2008/ 08 / 08/ fall-fashion-trends-your-fall-2008fashion-trend-checklist/.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 15 Guitar heroes: Save Tuesday nights for 1982's game night MEGAN HERON AVENUE WRITER For those strolling past the dimly lit bar windows of 1982 on a Monday night, be prepared to witness something other than locals watering down their worries. Instead, bystanders might find Gainesville's rock star wannabes imitating the greats on popular music video games such as Rock Band and Guitar Hero. It's been under the radar for some time, but every Monday at 9 p.m., local nightclub 1982, located at 919 W. University Ave., holds its official Video Game Night. The event, which is sponsored by Lipham Music and presented by 100.5 The Buzz, gives video games and music lovers a chance to play for free. 1982 has four flat screen TVs set up behind the bar, a TV by the door and another set up on stage. Gaming enthusiasts and anyone stopping in for a drink can play Rock Band and Guitar Hero, as well as Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis and Nintendo 64, which are available every night. 1982 has hosted the event for about a year but has received support from Lipham Music and The Buzz for the past month. The venue does not own Guitar Hero or Rock Band, but borrows the video games from friends. Jen Vito, a 1982 bartender, said the event was created as something to do on the off nights. The bar is primarily a music venue. "We had an empty stage so we could just do it up," Vito said. "It's just evolved." Dalia Robles, a game night regular and DJ for The Buzz, said the event attracts a diverse group of people whether they're locals or incoming freshmen. "It's fun, and it's not pretentious, and it supports an all-ages music scene." Jen Vito 1982 bartender "It's really fun for us nerds," Robles said. "You can just come enjoy the scene, have a few drinks and just have fun." "It's good, drunk fun," said Spanish, a DJ for The Buzz. Guitar Hero and Rock Band are set up on stage so players can face the pit, or audience. The systems are also plugged into the large speakers which generate sound throughout the venue. "It's almost like a real rock show," said Robles, whose favorite song to sing is "Maps" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Though there is no sign-up sheet, and Vito said the games are readily available. "It's not so busy you feel intimic^d or like you won't get to play," she said. Rockers can also participate in the Guitar Hero Tournament Sept. 28. The winner will receive a Fender guitar and amp provided by Lipham Music. "It's fun, and it's not pretentious, and it supports an all-ages music scene," Vito said. Dandy Warhols' new album under new label not so dandy ROBERT HILSON AVENUE WRITER In terms of sheer size, the only thing larger than ".Earth to theDandy Warhols." is Courtney Taylor-Taylor's massive ego. It would be irresponsible to credit the growth of said persona to past experience this kind of megalomania you're born with but those once-coveted Seth Cohen playlist adds and the exposure in 1960s revivalist doc Dig! couldn't have helped matters. Having since nstaken Sundance for the Academy and obscurity for fame, Taylor and his Dandy band shed the limitations of their modest guitar rock stance to back up the eye-liner orientation, and with this latest palike to walk into a gunfight with a ralysis-inducing, hour-plus space .44 Magnum and no bullets -lots jam, permanently shoot of fiah obn. to hell any lingering pop orreash, no bang. fliratios infavo ofCorrection: one bang, flirtations in favor of e should you count your misfired trance drones, iPod colliding with none of which will be I the floor during the featured in a K-Swiss -fourteenth minute of commercial. "Earth" is "Musee D'Nougat." It's the kind of brazen kiss the anti"Sister Ray," off you'd expect from ". Earth to the an extended suite of a man with two last Dandy Warhols." insipid buzzing topped names. $10.99 off by some guy going Each song sends a on about egg whites and by now familiar message: Dandys caramel. Seriously You can't make rule, OK? Too bad there's no subthis stuff up. In infinite Dandy wisdom, the group decided to echo the last seconds of the monolithic waste of tape during the introduction to opener "The World the People Together (Come On)," making it possible to play the record repeatedly without a noticeable gap. Once is enough. Taylor's hash 'n crash lyrical shtick doesn't exactly command code-cracking playbacks. The Dandys smoke. We get it. Still, our ironed-haired hipsters rattle off a salvo of wink, wink in-jokes about sex, drugs. .and drugs, Odditorium style. Remove four letters from seven-minute stoner anthem "Valerie Yum" to get the Dandys' favorite recreational chemical! The -chorus shouts, "I just don't care no more." Makes two of us. This kind of barefaced disinterest might come as a letdown. for those blissfully ignorant to the band's fantasy land. After all, the title hints at a rare run-in with reality.

16, ALLIGATOR S THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2008 "Hamlet 2": A B movie or not a B movie? "1 While watching "Hamlet 2," you may be bombarded by a number of questions that seem important. "Who is Steve Coogan?" you might find yourself thinking. "How did a barrage of misfits in Tucson magically learn to act and sing?" and "Why is the funniest joke about Elizabeth Shue, an actress who has beenLJip on the blockbuster radar since the late 1990s?" Though these questions may seem minor, they'll consistently make you question the validity and overall merit of the movie at large. Not to say the film is bad, though in fact, quite the contrary. As far as being entertaining, this movie succeeds to a point, managing to stay interesting despite its "Sister Act" formula. Another plus is that it only lasts a gloriously short 90 minutes, a feat which seems too rare amid the plethora of self-indulgent threehour crap-fests, which lack any editing whatsoever. The movie's real failure is in the way it was advertised and executed as a whole. If you've seen the previews or heard the buzz, you're expecting an irreverent comedy, a "Waiting For Guffman" meets "Anchorman." However, seeing it with these preconceptions will cause severe disappointment. The first hour, despite a few forced jokes, is rather somber. The movie opens with a detailed portrayal of the awful life of Coogan's character, Dana Marschz, who suffers abuse as a child, failure as an actor, low-income employment, a deteriorating marriage and to top it off, the news that due to financial problems, acting will be cut from the high school curriculum. DAVID STUZIN + AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER The plot follows Marschz as he enlists a ragtag group of "gangstah" Latino students to help put on his "revolutionary" musical sequel to Hamlet in a last-ditch effort to save drama. Playing the character in a relatable and likeable way, Coogan makes Marschz rather pitiable. Unlike Ron Burgundy of "Anchorman" or Corcky St. Clair of "Guffman," Marschz is not a vain, self-confident caricature but rather a human to whose problems we can actually relate, and that just isn't funny. If viewed as a comedy, the film parodies two types of movies. One is the "inspiring teacher" genre "Mr. Holland's Opus," "Sister Act," "Take the Lead" and two is the "lets-put-on-a-show" genre, reminiscent of the cheesy Broadway productions of old. A few times the parody comes through, but for the most part, the writers break the cardinal rule of parody becoming serious. There are points at which I wondered whether the movie was poking fun at these genres or taking part in them. Even when the movie spoofs, the jokes are hardly strong enough to stand alone and manifest through the mostly slapstick humor you've seen before. The comedy really doesn't improve until the last 30 minutes, when the movie completely changes. The actual production of the play, "Hamlet 2," within the movie makes watching it completely worthwhile. I'll limit spoilers. Suffice it to say it somehow manages to mix Hamlet, Jesus, light sabers and a time machine into one incredibly funny and strangely profound musical. More than that, it manages to fit in the movie as a sunflower blossoming from a sad manure. In short, the movie isn't what Embrace swamp sexcapades after drop/add week STEPHANIE DUNN AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER It's mid-August, and the bells of Century Tower -maybe a few e-bill notifications, also -are beckoning you to UF, a sultry and sticky swamp where you become an under-financed, oversexed version of your at-home self. There's a hotness factor that goes along with being a Gator. If you're new, acquaint yourself with it. If you're not, reintroduce yourself. For us, being irresistible comes as effortlessly as winning a few national championships. So why not embrace it? What's stopping you from letting go and getting whatever and whoever you want? And whatever and whoever are everywhere, strange beings that somehow slipped by your attention back home. One pounds away on the treadmill beside you at Southwest RecreationCenter, sweaty and flushed, grunting with every stride.You witness them lining hallways, invading every musty crevice of Library West and every square inch of lawn space on the Plaza of the Americas, flocking to pool parties in scantily-clad droves, gyrating with reckless aggression in moist downtown clubs -it seems that as summer winds down and hurricanes wind up, Gainesville becomes overrun with them. You try not to stare while driving, lest you crash your Vespa. But everywhere you tum, they're waiting for you. I'm talking Th about achingly alluring colhotne lege coeds, one of the most irresistible species of sexy tor that goe known to man. Ironic, isn't with being it, that at home, where everyone knew everyone, you If yoU 're n couldn't find anyone worquaint your thy of your superior body fluids? And if you did get with it. laid back home, you were probably either settling or unaware of your potential. Admit it. So without much warning, you're thrust into a strange, new arena where more than 50,000 strangers, a collective mass of throbbing, carnal energy, are after you, seeking, well, exactly what you're seeking -sex. Lots of it with one disclaimer: claiming you want a wholesome, meaningful relationship. This is just a slippery slope into having a wealth of quaking sex later, which is like hitting the Staples "easy button." Once at the university, your cunning libido begins to play perverse Jedi-sex tricks on your naive brain. While ere's a standing in line at Starbucks, ss faC_ you're certain that that saucy little barista was giving you the s along once over while foaming your Gator. latte. Thoughts of what you and the Starbucks Siren could ew, acdo with a bottle of sugar-free self hazelnut syrup gives you goose bumps. Or there's that frat-tastic stud who offers yQu his seat on the bus. He rises with a smile. You sit with a coy "thank you," and you're rewarded with his plaid short-covered bulge swaying inches from your face with each of the bus's meandering turns. What is in actuality a perfectly average-looking guy holding onto the ceiling bar suddenly bears remarkable semblance to Brad Pitt, hanging by his bulging biceps in the doorway in "Fight Club." It's football season, and testosterone levels are peaking. The temperature is rising, and inhibitions, along with panties, are dropping rapidly. In the words of Lloyd Christmas from "Dumb And Dumber," "The beer is flowing like wine, and you're not getting any less hot." There are no curfews, and after a few shots there won't be any guilt, either. This semester, have fun, but don't forget to breathe -and definitely don't forget to wrap it up. Give your ravenous sex drive at least until Drop/Add is over before jumping into any pre-ordered extra-long twin sheets. With your college career beginning, cruising along or sadly ending, the excitement will make even the creepy teaching assistant with the mushroom-like odor and question-mark-shaped mole on his lip seem attractive. Take it from me, no matter where you are, there's still plenty of time to make the best mistakes of your life. Stephanie Dunn is a senior majoring in journalism and English.

Sports THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2008 ALLIGATOR www.aligatorSports.org Stamper becomes surprise leader N HE WILL REPLACE THE INJURED BRANDON SPIKES IN THE STARTING LINEUP. By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Staff Writer khyppolite@aIIigator.org You could say Ryan Stamper is ready for his close-up. With preseason All-Southeastern Conference linebacker Brandon Spikes likely to miss Saturday's opener against Hawaii with a foot injury, one would think the Gators would be concerned with how they would replace a player who is expected to improve upon a season in which he totaled 131 tackles. Guess not. "He's probably the most reliable person on our football team," defensive coordinator Charlie Strong said of Stamper. "It's so funny because you know with Stamp what you're always going to get. He's really solid and a good football player." Stamper has only made one start during his tenure as a Gator, but UF's confidence in him is high. The redshirt junior was voted a team captain this season and is well-versed in the Gators defensive schemes, as he is one of the few players who know all three of the Gators' linebacker positions. It's no surprise that Stamper remains confident entering his second career start. "If (Spikes) can't go, and I get that opportunity, that's just a great honor for me in the first game," Stamper said. "I'll be ready to go against Hawaii, Miami, Tennessee, whoever. I've just got to be ready when my number is called." Stamper would likely not only be a starter on most other teams but a featured player. The Jacksonville native has been content to contribute on special teams and gain the respect of his teammates, even if most fans are unaware of his contributions. SEE STAMPER, PAGE 28 Andrew Stanfili/Alligator Staff UF linebacker Ryan Stamper celebrates an interception during practice at the UF practice fields on Aug. 5. UF FOOTBALL L Harvin, Spikes to miss opening game By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Staff Writer edrexler@alligator.org What had long been suspected was confirmed after the Gators' practice Wednesday: Wide receiver Percy Harvin and linebacker Brandon Spikes will not play in Saturday's season opener. Harvin has been recovering from heel surgery, and Spikes' injured right foot is still bothering him, UF coach Urban Meyer said. Meyer denied the Gators were resting the two simply because Hawaii should be a pushover. "There's no holding anyone (back)," Meyer said. "We're playing a team that was 12-0, so we better play some excellent defense and take care of the football on Saturday." Meyer was uncertain if Spikes and Harvin would be able to play on Sept. 6 against Miami, and Harvin said their availability would be determined next week in practice. Sophomore offensive lineman Maurice Hurt also missed practice and will be unavailable Saturday with a shoulder stinger. Meyer expects senior offensive lineman Jim Tartt and sophomore center Maurkice Pouncey to play against Hawaii. After missing Tuesday's practice with a staph infection, backup quarterback John Brantley did practice with the team Wednesday. WILSON TO 0-LINE: Junior Ronnie Wilson, currently a defensive lineman, has moved back to his old position on the offensive line, defensive line coach Dan McCarney said. SEE NOTES, PAGE 28 Hardships rob former playerof '08 season One of the toughest parts about becoming an adult is the realization that life doesn't always have those fairy tale endings you read about growing up. In fact, life is filled with moments of tragedy -just ask junior Alli Cecchini. (Full disclosure: Cecchini was just hired by the Alligator's advertising department a few days ago. I had no idea until Wednesday night, well after I decided to write tlis column.) Cecchini was the backup setter for the UF volleyball team the past two seasons, behind Angie McGinnis, one of the best setters ever to grace the O'Connell Center floor. This was the year for Cechini to Phil Kegler take the helm. Phil on the Hill But she won't pksglsr@slligstor.org be on the court Friday night in the season opener against Alabama Birmingham. As Cecchini's moment in the spotlight approached, she suddenly wanted to duck into the darkness. "There were some days I wanted to just sit in my room and be by myself and not be around people," she says. It's hard to blame her. E N E Her sister passed away during her senior year of high school. Her best friend, Ashley Slonina, was tragically lost in a motorcycle accident in October. Ai's parents even moved to Gainesville part-time to help her get through it all. On March 7, her world came crashing down again. Coach Mary Wise called the junior into her office and told her that her 38-year-old brother had passed away, leaving her 14-year-old nephew without a daddy. "My mom didn't want me to be in the car driving or be by myself, so she called Mary and told her first," SEE PHIL, PAGE 28 MNCAA Football NC State vs. South Carolina ESPN, 8 p.m. I NCAA Football Ore.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2008 0 ALLIGATOR, 27 Former Gator Green ra ~ .signs with Spanish club 7Alligator File Photo UF junior point guard Taurean Green dribbles around the perimeter during the first half of the NCAA national championship game on April 2, 2007 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. HE SPENT THREE SEASONS AT UF AND WON TWO NCAA TITLES. By MIKE DiFERDINANDO Alligator Staff Writer mdiferdinando@alligator.org Taurean Green doesn't speak much Spanish, and that may be a problem. The former UF point guard confirmed Wednesday that he has agreed to play for the Spanish club CAT Zaragoza. Green is in the process of negotiating what is believed to be a one-year deal with the team. He would not confirm the specifics of the contract. "I feel like this is the best move for me right now," he said in a phone interview. Green said he is excited to spend some time overseas, and he views the move as a positive step for his career. "The competition is tough. The guys playing in this league are good players," he said. Green points to Spain's recent Olympic success as proof of the league's talent level. CAI Zaragoza was promoted to the top flight of Spanish basketball after winning the second-division title last season. Zaragoza will now face off with wellknown clubs such as Barcelona and Real Madrid in Spanish basketball's premier league. Green said he is not worried about his inability to speak the native language, and that he doesn't think he will have a hard time adjusting to life in Spain. "I love Spanish food," he said. "So I'm excited about that." Green slipped to the seconco6und of the 2007 NBA Draft, where he was selected No. 52 overall by the Portland Trailblazers, after leaving UF early along with former teammates Corey Brewer, Al Horford and Joakim Noah. While the rest of his UF teammates contributed heavily in their rookie years, Green spent most of his at the end of the bench. Green Actually, several different benches. Since draft day, the 6-foot guard has spent time with the Blazers' Development League team, the Idaho Stampede, the Denver Nuggets and most recently the New York Knicks. Despite making more than $400,000 in his rookie year, Green only averaged 1.6 points per game and struggled to make it off the bench in both Portland and Denver. Green, who was cut by the Knicks on July 28, said he hopes a year overseas will help showcase his talent for NBA teams.

28, ALb GATOR U THURSDAY, AUGUST 28, 2008 1 Wilson switches from D-line to 0-line STAMPER, from page 25 And that is the reason why he was voted a team captain. "Stamper is just one of those guys who you can always count on to be there, he'll never let you down," sophomore linebacker trandon Hicks said. "Spikes is one of those dudes who is real energetic. (Stamper is) not as vocal as Spikes and he won't be hooting and hollering, but he'll always be there. "I think (being voted a captain) helped him feel like he was in a better position to show what he can do." Coach Urban Meyer has little fear Stamper will be able to adequately replace Spikes in the meantime. Meyer has mentioned Stamper as one of the players who has been the most impressive during the preseason, and his unselfishness has stood out. "Stamper is a very physical, accountable guy," Meyer said. "He's one of those guys who works his tail off, and he starts on the punt team, which tells you how much I think of him." Meyer has always said how important he feels special teams are, so being on the punt team is a serious responsibility. Stamper fancies himself as a guy who has .been able to maximize his athletic ability by being a Meyer student of the game. He has played linebacker since his Pop Warner days and learned all three linebacker positions in the Gators defense to make himself a more versatile player. It's something that young players could learn from Stamper. "A lot of people think it's talentwise, but it's not talent," Stamper said of being able to play multiple positions. "A lot of people have talent, but they've just got to learn to play on the college level, get the plays down and play fast." NOTES, from page 25 Wilson played left guard during the Gators' 2006 run to the national championship, but was kicked off the team in April 2007 for disciplinary reasons. He rejoined the team this summer. HOME COOKING: When asked if he would travel as far as Hawaii for a road game, or even to a state like California or Texas, Meyer's answer was straightforward. "No. Not with our schedule," Meyer said. PHIL, from page 25 Cecchini said. "(Wise) was there through all of it, she was crying with me when I found out. She was really understanding." In the background of such tragedy, Cecchini was also in spring practice, fighting to live up to the incredible bar set by McGinnis. "I can't explain how much pressure there was on me to do well, and I was honestly playing awful, horrible," Cecchini said. "I just realized that it was really selfish to be on this team and not be able to mentally be there all the way.", Her parents were forced "Have you seen our schedule?" The farthest UF will travel from Gainesville this season is in Fayetteville, Ark., on Oct. 4. STADIUM SHAPING UP: Wednesday brought more signs of football's imminent arrival in The Swamp. The logo at the 50-yard line had been stenciled in along with the end zones and the 25-yard-line logos. Football The old, blocky font used in the end zone in past years has been replaced by the more angular logo. Both field goal crossbars had also been erected, but no posts were attached. to stay in California full-time after her brother passed, and Alli realized she wanted to be home more, which would require her to leave the team. Alli planned to tell Wise after the spring season, because she laughingly admits she really wanted to play in the first-ever Southeastern Conference beach volleyball tournament. But Wise could tell, calling Cecchini into her office the week before the tournament. "(Wise) was like, 'Look, what are we going to do about you next year? Your head's obviously not in it. We need to sit down and figure out a game plan for you, what's going to work out for you."' Alli couldn't hold it in any longer. "I just felt like I'd be lying to sit there and pretend like, 'Yeah, let's make a game plan,' so I was just like, 'Mary, I decided I'm not playing next year."' Her coach and teammates were shocked, and former roommate Elyse Cusack especially. But the most important thing was their support, which Cecchini cherishes. Alli will be in the stands for Friday night's season opener, yelling for her former teammates, who she talks to nearly every day. She knows she'll miss playing, but life forced her to make this sad choice. Because sometimes things really don't end Happily Ever After. ADD SOME EXCITEMENT & ADVENTURE TO YOUR UF SCHEDULE!
