Students, SG take sides over expansion fee


USF, FSU have enacted similar fees


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Staff Writer

At the Reitz Union students can
gather together, but discussions of
a proposed student fee to fund its
renovation, repairs and expansion
are dividing students and Student
Government senators.
The proposed fee would include


a $20 flat fee for each student in ad-
dition to a $3 fee per credit hour, ac-
cording to Student Body President
Jordan Johnson. He said the estimat-
ed cost of the renovation and expan-
sion would be about $70 million to
$80 million.
About $56 million would come
from student fees, while the remain-
der would be paid through Capi-


tal Improvement Trust Funds and
alumni donations, Johnson said.
Out of the $56 million from stu-
dent fees, about $42.5 million would
help fund Reitz Union repairs while
the remainder would fund the ex-
pansion, Johnson said.
Some suggestions for the renova-
tion and expansion include making
the building Leadership in Energy


and Environmental Design certified,
expanding student organization
space and adding a 1,500-seat the-
ater for dances and events, accord-
ing to a presentation by Johnson.
Johnson said other state schools,
including University of South Flor-
ida and Florida State University,
have used a similar student fee to
fund their student unions.
Eddie Daniels, the executive
director of the Reitz Union, said
repairs are necessary regardless of


how they are funded.
He said the Reitz Union requires
$42.5 million over the next 15 years
for repairs involving air handling
units, plumbing and electrical sys-
tems.
Daniels said architects met with
students, organizations, faculty and
staff Nov. 2 through Nov. 5 to take
suggestions about what they would
like to see added to the union, but

Theatre Strike Force doesn't need
scripts to get a laugh.
About 250 people attended the
group's performance of "Unscript-
ed" Wednesday. The show was a
celebration of the group's first-place
win in the southeastern regional
round of the third annual College
Improv Tournament.
Another performance of "Un-
scripted" will be held today at 9 p.m.
in the Reitz Union Rion Ballroom.
The tournament took place in
Atlanta on Saturday. Theatre Strike
Force sent five of its members,
known as the Sunday Group, to
compete against eight other south-
eastern colleges. The group will go
to Chicago for the tournament finals
on Feb. 6.
"I want a national champion-
ship for UF in improve said Jennifer
Francis, a senior telecommunication


major and member of Theatre Strike
Force.
In the competition, the group
performed two 25-minute improvi-
sation sessions. The group won the
first session and went to the final
round.
Last year the Sunday Group
placed second in the regional
round.
Saturday's performance was
similar to the show "Unscripted."
The show includes a cast of nine
members, three of whom were also
members of the Sunday Group.
Guest speakers in "Unscripted"
were asked random questions about
their lives, experiences and dreams.
Among the speakers were en-
tomology professor Carl Barfield,
former UF track star and Olympic
gold medalist Bernard Williams,
and Student Body President Jordan
Johnson.
The show was sponsored by The-
atre Strike Force, Reitz Union Board
Entertainment and SG.

Santa Fe College students create amateur fight club


* MEMBERSHIP IN THE
CLUB IS FREE.

ByJOHN J. BOOTHE
Alligator Contributing Writer

The first rule about fight club is
you do talk about fight club.
As mixed martial arts MMA
- continues its fight to become
America's No. 1 televised violence
supplier, so does the desire of its
viewers to learn the secrets and
techniques behind every guillotine
choke and armbar submission.


But the increase in popularity
also comes with an increase in de-
mand for training.
So, two Santa Fe Community
College students are offering an af-
fordable training price for even the
tightest budget: free.
Amateur kickboxers Trey Tuck-
er, 20, and Jarrod Carmody, 19,
started Gainesville Fight Club as
a way to teach each others MMA
style combat in between their full-
time school and work schedules.
The two of them meet several times
a week in Carmody's garage where
Tucker has $500 worth of mats,


gloves, bags and Thai pads.
Both fighters describe the club
as a cooperative, where each fight-
er contributes something, whether
it is equipment or training tech-
niques, to the group.
"If you're poor, we don't care,"
Tucker said. "Come
Local in, man. You can use
News our gloves, and we
can work something
out. We can do car washes or sell
GFC T-shirts. The whole point is to
show there are other ways to do this
than having to charge money."
Tucker said his training suits


the college lifestyle more than a
professional system. Most profes-
sional training is geared for people
who want to make a career out of
MMA.
Jason Dolder, head trainer of
the F2 Fight Team in Gainesville,
said that while it's admirable that
Gainesville Fight Club is trying to
offer free MMA training, his gym is
far from ripping people off.
"There's a reason why you pay
professionals to teach you this
stuff," he said.
F2 Fight Team offers training
for $55 a month, which, according


to Dolder, is very affordable when
compared with other MMA gyms.
Tucker thinks that even though
he and Carmody are relatively new
to MMA their first organized
fights in the discipline will be Jan-
uary the training necessary to
start out isn't complicated.
Ninety percent of MMA train-
ing is relatively simple, he said. For
the other 10 percent, such as Brazil-
ian Jiu-Jitsu and boxing technique,
he said the group will pitch in
money to hire a professional to lay
the groundwork for that month's
training.

Group calls for 'Vagina' roles


Auditions continue tonight


Ana Goni-Lessan Alligator Staff
Alicia Marie Rodriguez, an advertising and theater major, auditions for "The Va-
gina Monologues" in the basement of the Reitz Union on Tuesday night.


By JULIE UNGER
Alligator Contributing Writer

When she was 11 years
old, Lorraine Wheat stood
in the middle of a bookstore
and said, "Guess what, Mom.
My vagina is angry."
Wheat's mother was famil-
iar with the book her daugh-
ter was imitating and calmly
explained to her daughter a
little bit about the play.
Eight years later, Wheat
once again announced that
her vagina was angry this
time during a play called
"The Vagina Monologues"
by Eve Ensler.
This year, Victory Over
Violence, a UF anti-domestic
violence organization, will
put on its fourth annual
production of "The Vagina
Monologues" as a fundraiser
for organizations like local
domestic violence victim
shelter Peaceful Paths.
"Any woman who wants
to be proactive and to fight
for human rights, who wants
to do great things, wants to
be like [Ensler]," said Wheat,
an advertising senior and
Victory Over Violence public


relations officer at UF.
Auditions for the 2010
performance began on Tues-
day and will continue from
8:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. tonight
in the Reitz Union basement,
Room 60.

"I don't think this is
something you can get
involved in and it not
become your heart."
Lorraine Wheat
UF student


Twenty-eight women au-
ditioned Tuesday, and more
are expected to audition to-
night.
"There are 33 mono-
logues, and we offer anyone
that auditions that doesn't
get a monologue a spot in
public relations, advertising
or something else so they can
still be involved in the pro-
duction," said Jenna Calton,
Victory Over Violence presi-
dent and a psychology junior
at UF.
During the 2008-2009 fis-
cal year, Peaceful Paths pro-
vided services for 1.260 new


clients, helped house 128
adults and 90 children and
provided 11,701 services, ac-
cording to the Peaceful Paths
2009 fact sheet.
The monologues deal
with the pain and shame that
women face, whether it's be-
cause of their bodies, experi-
ences or surviving abuse.
"Eve Ensler uses the work
to inspire a grassroots move-
ment which started anti-vi-
olence and abuse networks.
Vday.org showcases all of
the movements and all of
the things they're doing. It
shows that she's using her
work and art to give women
who wouldn't be able to ex-
press themselves a medium
to talk about their pain,"
Wheat said.
She added that her part in
the play inspired deep con-
versations with women who
sought her out afterward to
say they wished they could
express themselves.
"After you do this play
you feel, 'Why not? Why
should I feel ashamed for be-
ing a woman?'" Wheat said.
"I don't think this is some-
thing you can get involved
in and it not become your
heart."

expected to...take any possible indication that something is
out of order very seriously, and that's what the chair did,"
D'Anieri said.
"I actually don't think it's that big a deal," he said of clos-
ing the office. "I don't think it caused a big disruption and if
it helped people feel better, then that's fine."
Conley's lawyer, Thomas Edwards, said
the closure of the office was unwarranted.
Edwards said Conley had made no threats
to anyone at UF and that the closing was
likely influenced by a strained relationship
between Conley and Craig.
"There was no connection between
\ what took place between he and his wife
and the department chair closing down the
Coley department," he said.
He said the reference to past violent threats in Craig's e-
mail likely alluded to allegations made by Conley's ex-wife
during divorce proceedings that began in 2006.
According to Edwards, the allegations, which Conley said
are untrue, were made to gain leverage in a custody battle.
Craig referred comment to UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes,
who said her ability to comment was limited because the is-
sue was a personnel matter.

Fee-for-All

SG should get student

input on new Reitz fee

Tuesday's Student Government vote on the proposed Re-
itz Union expansion has stirred up almost as much inter-
est (and as many impassioned letters and Web site com-
ments) as SG's pending decision on a resolution denouncing the
Goldstone report, the controversial UN report alleging Israeli
war crimes.
For those of you somehow not already offended by the Al-
ligator's coverage of this report and we know there must be a
few of you left out there look to future issues.
But this week, rather than grandiose matters of war and
peace in the Middle East, SG tackled a subject that it may actu-
ally hold some influence over... unfortunately.
This resolution, which supports a student fee for the renova-
tion and expansion of the Reitz Union (and effectively endorses
the expansion itself), passed 67 10, despite fierce debate.
The fact that letters to the Alligator describe this debate as
"grad-student whining" underscores how differently some
parties view the proposed fees. A $20 dollar flat fee plus $3
per credit hour might sound like chump change. But if it does,
you're likely not one of about 75 students who appeared to
voice concerns about rising student fees.
These whiners, many of whom are grad students without
Bright Futures or Florida Prepaid to help ease costs, pay signifi-
cant amounts out of pocket toward student fees. One graduate
assistant in the English department says her student fees ac-
count for up to 10 percent of her salary.
Another $100 dollars a year might not mean much for SG
senators or persistent, anonymous letter writers, but to some-
one on a razor thin budget, it can make a difference.
The fact that SG is voting on how to pay for a renovation and
expansion before it determines whether the Student Body even
wants or needs these changes leaves us with the same look
of shock and bewilderment that uninformed students will have
if slapped with new fees.
SG members cite a petition signed by 1,500 students as evi-
dence that UF wants (and needs?) a new and improved Reitz
Union. We can picture how that went down almost like we
were badgered outside of Library West ourselves: grand prom-
ises without a complete explanation of the financial impact on
all students.
As for the argument that student organizations desperately
need more office and meeting space, we still wonder how the
empty halls and meeting rooms that make the Reitz look like
a ghost town factor into SG's assessment. If the Reitz wants to
"better meet the needs of our current student population," as
its executive director Eddie Daniels described the expansion's
goal, why not first focus on making maximum use of the cur-
rent facilities.
UF can accomplish this goal by involving students (other
than a few SG members) in the process, receiving feedback
along the way to make better informed decisions. Daniels said
that architects tasked with planning the proposed expansion
met with students, organizations, faculty and staff earlier this
month; we wonder what limited group of students these archi-
tects met with. We didn't receive an invitation. (Go figure.)
UF and SG's lack of transparency in planning Reitz changes
merely aggravates all of these issues. Student fees, determining
critical needs... whether changes are necessary at all; we need
public discussion on these key points.
UF is a learning institution; it is ironic that we simultaneous-
ly cut dozens of faculty and staff members while constructing
new and possibly unnecessary buildings. Students need a voice
in this decision, especially if millions of dollars are involved.
Fortunately this resolution does not take any action. It mere-
ly reflects the opinion of the Senate. We're not quite sure that it
reflects the opinion of the UF Student Body, though.

Pray for less fortunate at Thanksgiving


While driving Oprah to her highest ratings in two
years, Sarah Palin asked that we cast aside our
petty sociopolitical differences and as a united
country pray for the everliving soul of Levi Johnston.
Pray for Levi.
While my main gripe with Sarah Palin is her wanton dis-
regard for the tradition of giving children sensible names,
her advocacy of Levi Johnston as worthy of prayerful wor-
ship seems a negligent reading of Heavenly duties. Prayers
showered upon the healthy, virile white teenager swim-
ming in pistachio money surely fall upon deaf ears.
Perhaps she is emboldened by a reading of some more
vengeful God, more of an Old Testament deity. This God
surely would read our prayers as time to test the faith of
young Levi and arrange a severe comeuppance full of
wrath and afflictions.
This same God has infected the mind of Goldman Sachs
Chief Executive Officer Lloyd Blankfein, who in a long
London Times interview snidely remarked that earth-shat-
teringly horrible banking of the last derivative decade is
"God's work."
Pray for Levi. Pray for Lloyd, too.
Pray that we get some follow-through of good Ole' Tes-
tament rocket sauce from these mournful missives. Lloyd
and his like-minded accomplices surely do their bidding
tempting the good graces of Genesis god, a holy figure
always ready with a good hard smiting. Some bloodfire,
maybe a few public stonings our prayers do not ask for
much.
We should keep optimism up that our prayers shall not
be in vain once sent to the correct sacred source. Based on
their conscienceless money grubbing, our economy got cir-
cumsized last fall with no anesthesia. Old Testament God


Tommy Maple


must appreciate this surprise bris
and may recognize our rightfully
embattled banking sector as true be-
lievers.
Americans were certainly com-
plicit in conjuring up the subprime
bomb that inflated our net worth and


leLters@IdalgaLor org our sense of ideological impervious-
ness, but the capitalist class raging
out ahead of us deserves scorn and scrutiny for this nuclear
economic winter. We fought the battles and lost much of
our livelihoods, but they seem to have somehow won the
war and rocketed off in a billion-dollar escape pod.
Pray for Lloyd. Don't forget to pray for Levi, though.
I prayed for Britney back in the day, and she got through
her bald tribulations relatively unscathed. Britney Spears is
a hard-working girl who loved that spotlight so badly that
she sacrificed a few sham marriages to the fame game. Levi
may not be able to sing as of now, but even the least-accom-
plished fame whore knows a good vocal coach.
My own prayers for Levi are centered around his inevi-
table marriage to Britney Spears and the creation of a band
starring his kids and Britney's kids. Made for MTV and the
accompanying decades of televised group therapy, this su-
perband could single-handedly rewrite the scale for total
awesomeness.
Levi won't stop at just one illegitimate child, mind you
- but the Partridge family wasn't created in a day. Be pa-
tient, my fellow terrestrial transgressors, and just send your
prayers out to Lloyd and Levi this Thanksgiving.
Pray for Levi.

Letters to the Editor
Senators disregarded students' wishes
I'd like to express my utter disgust at the
student senators who completely disregard-
ed their student constituents last night. More
than 70 students attended the Senate meeting
in opposition of a resolution that would sup-
port UF administration charging all students
a fee for the expansion and renovation of
the Reitz Union. Majority party senators ap-
proved this bill while simultaneously reject-
ing a proposed amendment that would bring
it to a Student Body referendum. It is under-
stood that the repairs are necessary. The ex-
pansion, however, is debatable pork.
Although the majority party senators
were quick to vote for this resolution, they
were not so quick to provide us with concrete
estimates of the costs students would have to
shoulder.
In fact, many of the estimates completely
ignored the additional millions of dollars in
costs that would be the responsibility of the
Student Body (more than $120 million). Yes,
everybody wants the luxury of a beautiful
union, but should itbe at the expense of other
students' groceries, gas and ability to contin-
ue their education at UF? With such a con-
troversial issue, students should have spoken
out, and they did only to be told their opin-
ion was irrelevant. Instead of participating in
debate, most senators were busy texting on
their BlackBerrys and iPhones. Senators, it
would be nice if you considered the people
who originally gave you authority.
Karla Rowe
UF student

Reitz Union needs renovations
The Alligator never seems to disappoint.
Wednesday's article "Senate approves Reitz
Union student expansion fee" left out some
important facts in the case for the Reitz Union
renovation and expansion. For instance, a pe-
tition was signed by about 1,500 students in
less than 24 hours in support of the renova-
tion and the student fee to pay for it. That
would seem to outweigh the 70 or so gradu-
ate students who attended Tuesday night's
Senate meeting.
The Reitz Union is in dire need of reno-
vation and expansion. It was built in 1967


for 19,000 students, and UF now has more
than 50,000. Many of the systems, including
the electrical and air conditioning systems,
are original to the building's construction. If
those systems fail there is not nearly enough
money in reserve to fix even one of them.
Not to mention the asbestos in the walls
and ceilings and the energy inefficiencies of
the 1960s-era equipment. If we delay further,
the cost of the project will increase, leading to
a further increase in the student fee.
This would place even more of a burden
on students, undergraduate and graduate
alike. The question has never been should we
renovate and expand the Reitz Union, it's just
when. That time is now.
Severin Walstad
UF freshman and Springs Area Senator

Current students won't see benefits of
Reitz Union expansion, renovation
The Student Senate should not have ap-
proved the resolution favoring the imple-
mentation of a new fee to pay for the pro-
posed expansion of the Reitz Union.
The proposed fees would (I believe) take
effect before the completion of renovation of
the Reitz Union. Few, if any, current UF stu-
dents would still be here when the renova-
tion is complete, yet we would not only have
to put up with the inconvenience of dealing
with the construction work on the union, but
also have to pay fees for a renovation that
doesn't benefit us. I frequently attend the free
movies at the union (yea, RUB).
There might be a period where we have
to go without free movies while the cinema
is renovated and Senate wants us to pay
a fee for that inconvenience. Eating at the
food court will be more difficult while the
renovation takes place and Senate wants
us to pay a fee for that inconvenience. If the
union must be renovated, and if the renova-
tion must be paid for with student fees, then
those fees should not be implemented until
the renovation is complete. The students who
actually get to enjoy the (supposed) benefits
of the expanded union should be the ones to
pay for it.
Finally, I don't even think the union needs
to be expanded. I can see that the asbestos


needs to be removed. By all means, please
remove the asbestos from the union. That
shouldn't cost enough to warrant a new fee,
though. The Senate bill repeatedly mentions
UF's more than 900 student organizations,
many of which do not have office space in the
union.
But how many of them really need office
space? I've held three different officer posi-
tions in the Linguistics Society in my time at
UF, and we have never had or needed any
office space. I can say confidently that no
more than 10 percent and quite possibly
no more than 5 percent of UF's student or-
ganizations would actually use office space.
I say, just remove the asbestos and leave the
rest of the union as it is.
Zoe Ziliak
UF PhD candidate in linguistics

Renovations will improve quality of UF
In response to the expansion and renova-
tion of the Reitz Union, I would like to ex-
press support, despite the objections raised
concerning extra fees. Another beautiful and
utilitarian building on the UF campus further
fortifies the quality and progress that distin-
guishes Florida from other higher learning
institutions.
In a true Burkean sense, the pride and use-
fulness from the expansion will far outweigh
the cost. So while we may be a bit lighter in
the pocket, we will have another quality ad-
dition to our already noble campus. Florida's
rise to a premier university has always had
costs. This is no different.

US efforts against terrorism are war
This is in response to Wednesday's letter
to the editor "'War on terror' not a war." I
must disagree with Patrick Poage's position
that calling our "global effort to eliminate ter-
rorists" a war allows al-Qaida and others to
justify their actions against our country and
our soldiers.
Poage, like many others, seems to have
forgotten the terrorist attacks happened prior


to our terming of the effort to prevent them a
"war." In the cases of the 1993 World Trade
Center bombing, the bombing of the U.S.S.
Cole and the Sept. 11 attacks, among other
incidents, the terrorists didn't wait for us to
"justify" them before attacking us.
Poage also noted that the Obama adminis-
tration dropped the term "war on terror." In
response, I ask: If our leaders are unwilling to
use strong language to describe this "global
effort," how can we assume that they will
take strong action to succeed in this conflict?

Preachers shouldn't mask messages
This morning, while I strolled through
Turlington Plaza, I was delighted to see that
people were handing out copies of "The
Origin of Species" by Charles Darwin. This
seemed a vast improvement over coupons
and fliers. Then I opened the book and found
the "special introduction" urging me to ac-
cept an intelligent designer and "receive the
gift of eternal life."
Like any article wishing to spread doubt,
it did not state its true intentions up front.
Gradually, selective quotations were used
and unscientific (but reasonable-sounding)
arguments were made against evolution un-
til the reader reached the Living Waters' true
message: Jesus.
Evolution is a fascinating process that ties
together and enforces every biology course
I've taken at UF. As it says on a door in Bar-
tram Hall, it's very gradual change that you
can believe in. I urge any students genuinely
interested in evolution to either ignore the
slander against Darwin and evolution or,
even better, to find out for themselves.
This isn't a matter of Christianity versus
evolution, as if people can't believe both.
It's possible. However, if you're going to
try to convert people, Ray Comfort, you
shouldn't hide your religious tract behind a
book praised by scientists all over the world.
Preach out in the open or don't preach at all.

MtvU Woodie Awards recognizes popular, new artists


By ALEX ORLANDO
avenue writer

What does it take to gain Woodie
status?
Bands will compete at the 2009
mtvU Woodie Awards, a showcase
of performers made popular on
college campuses. Performers will
include Asher Roth, Death Cab for
Cutie, Matt and Kim, The Dead
Weather and 30H!3 this year.
The awards show, now in its
sixth year, aired live Wednesday at
the Roseland Ballroom and will air
on MTV on Dec. 4 at 10 p.m. EST.
The Avenue participated in a col-
lege conference call on Nov. 10 with
artists who are nominated for the
award.
"We think it's a way for us to
call our artists that are having a
huge impact in college campuses
and respond to the attention that


the artists are getting from the col-
lege audience," said Eric Conte, the
executive producer of the Woodie
Awards, during the conference call.
Conte also said he sees college
audiences as a "crystal ball as far
as music prediction."
Bands such as Fall Out Boy and
The Academy Is have been nomi-
nated for Woodies in years past, on
their way to larger crowds and more
recognition. Newer musicians note
the Woodies as a landmark on their
music careers.
"It's really been a journey," said
Asher Roth, known on college cam-
puses for his song "I Love College."
"Being nominated for Woodie of the
Year-it's really kind of remarkable
to see and step back and watch it
all happen."
Some of the artists say putting
on a better live show has helped
them gain a solid college fan base.


"We try to adjust the show and
make it a little bit more epic for a
bigger crowd and have fun in differ-
ent ways," said Nathaniel Motte of
30H!3, nominated for Best Perform-
ing Woodie.

"It's really been a journey.
Being nominated for Woodiez
of the Year-it's really kind of
remarkable to see and step
back and watch it all happen."

ASHER ROTH
musician


Other artists attribute their stun-
ning and relatable videos to their
success on college campuses.
"It's more about everybody, you
know?" said Roth, who noted the
importance of relating to all crowds
on campus with his music.


"I think it forces you to think a
little harder," said Matt Johnson,
of Matt and Kim, who said he had
to beg his bandmate, Kim Schifino,
to appear naked with him in Times
Square to shoot a music video for
their song "Lessons Learned." The
video is nominated for Best Video
Woodie this year.
The video is relevant to college
students who are generally "more
open to doing wild things" at that
time of their lives, according to
Johnson, who refers to American
colleges as "communities of taste."
Matt and Kim will likely be per-
forming a clothed version of "Les-
sons Learned" at the Woodies.
Other performers include The Dead
Weather, also up for Best Video
Woodie, and Death Cab For Cutie.
Death Cab For Cutie is scheduled
to perform "Meet Me on the Equi-
nox" at the Woodies, which appears


on the "New Moon" soundtrack.
The Dead Weather has not released
which song they will perform.
However, the Woodies are not
meant to be a "march to the main-
stream," Conte said.
Still, Conte said he doesn't think
artists should limit themselves just
to stay out of the limelight.
"[The artists] want to continue
making music for themselves," he
said. "As long as there's an appre-
ciation going back and forth, I think
that's what the ultimate goal is for
someone."
Even artists who have gained
mainstream recognition see the
Woodies as an easier alternative to
winning the music industry's more
prestigious awards.
"Tony Bennett wins Grammys,"
said Chris Walla, guitarist for Death
Cab For Cutie. "It just doesn't seem
like it's our job to win Grammys."

Hawthorne


Musician creates acoustic tour


Heights reborn

By NICOLE LA HOZ
avenue writer

The members of Hawthorne Heights have always been
driven to form a solid band. It doesn't stem from a hunger
for success, though. To the Dayton, Ohio, rock band, playing
music is a therapeutic escape.
While the band battled lawsuits and countersuits with Vic-
tory Records Inc., the ultimate tragedy struck them in 2007:
Guitarist and longtime friend Casey Calvert was found dead
on the band's tour bus from accidental mixture of prescribed
medication.
"The one thing that got us through was music," drummer
Eron Bucciarelli said. "That was the one thing that wasn't
dependent on waiting on a lawyer's phone call or anything
else."
The band members penned down thoughts, strummed
out emotions and pounded out troubles. Bucciarelli said mu-
sic "was one sort of safe place we could all go and meet up."
Through instrumental remedy, Hawthorne Heights rose
above its adversities. "Skeletons" is the fourth release from
the band due early next year.

Hawthorne Heights will stop at Common
Grounds on Nov. 22 with Just Surrender,
Punchline, Monty Are I and Night Beast.
Tickets are $13 in advance and $15 the
day of. Doors open at 6 p.m.
The band sees smaller venues as a re-
vival because fans get a chance to recon-
nect with members as they preview the album. The shows
on Never Sleep Again are "way more intimate" and consist of
high energy performance from every band, ideal for fans who
haven't seen them live in four to six years, Bucciarelli said.
"This is all new to us again. It's great," he said.
"Skeletons" places the band in a delicate predicament,
however. While its 2004 platinum debut, "The Silence in Black
and White," and follow-up success, "If Only You Were Lonely,"
boom with catchy screamo rock tracks, lastyear's "Fragile Fu-
ture" was Hawthorne Heights' outlet for dealing with Calvert's
passing. The sudden reconciliation with Victory Records led to
a rushed release, and many fans were unaware of it.
Bucciarelli said he and the band worry about "die-hard"
fans' reactions to "Skeletons." Their tastes and influences
might have changed since "If Only You Were Lonely," he said.
"To maintain relevance you have to continuously evolve
and change your music," Bucciarelli said. "A lot of fans have
grown since then, so hopefully their tastes evolved too."
The band spent months working on a song, Bucciarelli
said, and each is unique.
"You have different vibes going on in this album, some
heavier and darker vibes," Bucciarelli said.
"Skeletons" remains a secret until the show. Bucciarelli
said he does not want to give too much away and humbly
mentioned that the band has expanded its sound and tried
new things.

Sometimes, simplicity can feel startlingly fresh.
Hot Water Music veteran Chuck Ragan has run away with
the idea, organizingthe second year of The Revival Tour, a group
of more than 20 artists collaborating on acoustic music.
The tour will stop in Gainesville Friday night at the Common
Grounds. Doors open at9 p.m.
The show will feature artists like Ragan, Jon Snodgrass, Jim
Ward and Gainesville native Jon Gaunt sharingthe stage in vari-
ous combinations, singing and playing on one another's tunes
freely.
"It's super simple, nothing that's never been done before,"
Ragan said.
Harking back to a Rolling Thunder Revue-style spirit, this
year's lineup features a disparate group of musicians, from folk-
sters to bluegrass players to Americana crooners.
With an average of 10 musicians on the bus on any given
stretch of the tour, Ragan has found that putting it all together
is as rewarding as it is difficult.
"I must say, as a musician, it has been probably the most
enjoyable way of touring I've done in my life and probably the
most challenging," he said.


A goal for the musicians is to forsake the traditional struc-
ture of shows, with the predictable opening acts, breaks and
headliners. Ragan wants to leave behind all of that monotony.
"When the show starts, we present everyone from the begin-
ning There's no ego on this run. We don't care who's going to
play first or who's goingto play last," he said.
With all of the players throwing caution to the wind, new col-
laborations spring up every night, and newcomers get to show
off their chops.
One of those newcomers is the first and only woman to join
The Revival Tour, Audra Mae. Ragan invited Mae to join after he
heard her music on her MySpace page. He eventually proved
instrumental in her getting a record deal.
At 25 years old, the gentle-voiced singer and songwriter is
glad to bring well-roundedness to the tour as a woman and as
the youngest performer, and she's thankful that the guys have
been nurturing, she said.
"The guys have been super protective," she said.
Friday's show is a sort of homecomingfor Ragan, who spent
10 years living here while playing in Hot Water Music. He loves
coming back to the scene that nurtured his musical ambitions
for years, he said.
"We have a lot of dear friends there. There's normally never
enough time to do all the fishing I want to do," he chuckled.

Bayside rocks out, but doesn't lead rockstar lifestyle


Editor's note: The writer spent twelve
hours shadowing Anthony Raneri of
Bayside to write this story.

By GABRIELA IZARRA
avenue contributing writer

It's 2:20 a.m. Saturday and I'm
sitting in a booth at the Waffle House
on Archer Road with Anthony Raneri,
lead singer and rhythm guitarist of
Bayside, and Brian Diaz, the band's
guitar tech.
Anthony is on his second $2
chicken biscuit.
In the booth adjacent to us, bass-
ist Nick Ghanbarian, lead guitarist
Jack O'Shea and Dylan Gibson, the
band's merchandiser, are finishing


up their midnight meals.
Waffle House was the finale of my
12-hour shadow session of Anthony
Raneri.
Bayside is an alternative punk
band from Queens, N.Y., and I had
the privilege of hanging with them
before and after their free show at
the Reitz Union on Friday.
The Reitz Union Board Entertain-
ment paid the band $5,000 to play
in the Rion Ballroom, said Bailey

Flashback to earlier in the day as
the band waited to play their set.
Blackberries in hand, Anthony
and Brian updated their Twitter ac-


putting chicken in buckets?
The backstage area didn'tscream
punk rock. It barelywhispered it. Vita-
minwater, hummus and Spicy-sweet
Chili Doritos. No booze. No drugs.
In fact, Anthony stays sober. Even
at Common Grounds downtown, he
sat empty handed as
Local the rest of us sipped
on beers. Though
She's never empty
handed for very
long-cigarette and coffee breaks
are standard.
More than 500 showgoers crowd-
ed the ballroom, some lining up out-
side the venue as early as 4 p.m. to


with All Your Friends Are Dead and
Away With You, two Florida bands,
warming up the audience for the
headliner.
Bayside finally hit the stage at
9:45 p.m.
Music ripped from the speakers
as the band members pounded away
at their instruments. Fans belted out
lyrics, and the occasional crowd-surf-
er landed on the stage.
Chants of "one more song" raved
after Bayside had said its good-bye.
In what looked like a plotted en-
core, the band finished off with its
most popular song, "Devotion and
Desire."


counts and checked useless facts ensure entry in the show. Once the equipment was loaded
on Wikepedia. Who ever thought of The performance began at 8 p.m. back on the bus, we squeezed Jack


in the trunk of my Jeep Liberty and
headed downtown for some cheap
celebratory brews.
As the bars closed in Gainesville,
the guys demanded Waffle House.
After indulging in a fatty midnight
breakfast, they had only 2 hours be-
fore departing to Pensacola for their
next show. I dropped them back off
at their tour bus on campus, and
headed home with mixed feelings-
thrilled to have spent the day with
one of my favorite bands but disap-
pointed that it was over.
This was not the first show Bay-
side has played in Gainesville, and
I'm sure it wasn't their last. They'll be
back. If not for the fans, then for the
$2 chicken biscuits at Waffle House.

starts purse collection


* Barcelona native Laura Vela
will be studying at UF and sell-
ing her custom-made line of
handbags

By REBEKAH GEIER
avenue writer

Gainesville's fashion scene is
about to get more exclusive.
Laura Vela, 23, is selling one-of-
a-kind handbags to women like her-
self those who love fashion and
see it as a form of self-expression
but don't want to be seen like every-
one else.
The Barcelona native and aspir-
ing designer will be in Gainesville
until August studying business
through UF's graduate international
exchange program.
"Fashion for me, whenever I think
about it, is a way of escaping what is
going on in the world," Vela said.
Vela, who studies executive man-
agement and fashion marketing at
ESADE, a business school in Spain,
is taking a break from business to
launch her own fashion line.
"I've always wanted to do some-
thing creative, but I am also aware
of how difficult it is to be someone in
this world," Vela said about her new
venture.
She already has one foot in the
industry: Vela studied atthe Fashion
Institute of Technology in New York
City and contributed to Teen Vogue.
She has also styled A-list celebrities
while working at American Rebel
PR, including Jessica Alba, Leighton
Meester, Ed Westwick, Miley Cyrus,
Lindsay Lohan and Zac Efron.
Vela started designing handbags
four weeks ago, by accident. Af-
ter designing two bags just for fun,
hoards of compliments sparked the
young designer to consider starting
a business. The rest came natural-
ly.
"I just started drawing," Vela said


about the beginning designs for
her handbags. "At FIT I was taking
fashion-related classes, like styling
or upcoming trends, but not fashion
design."
Vela's personalized handbags
master the ability of combining high
fashion with high quality. She plans
on targeting women who look for in-
dividuality in the accessories they
buy, something they can't find at
stores like Forever 21, she said.
"I want to make the girl who
wears my bag to feel special and
unique," Vela said. "And since I want
to sell a purse that is unique, I want
it to be good quality."
Vela hand-picks the materials
used in producing her
Fashion handbags from fab-
ric stores in Buenos
Aires, Argentina. She
only uses real leather
or snakeskin. The extra embellish-
ments, such as silver studs and zip-
pers, come from Los Angeles or vin-
tage stores. Vela says the bags are
expected to last at least five years.
Vela says her designs are the per-
fect complement to a simple outfit.
So far, there is no precise style
to her line of handbags, which is the
point. Vela makes each design dif-
ferent so that there is variety.
"If today I am in a rock and roll
kind of mood, the black stud purse
would be perfect," Vela said regard-
ing the imagination she tries to cre-
ate to go along with her bags.
Her first design, for example, is a
muted colored snakeskin clutch in
baby blue, gray and mauve. Some
of her newer designs include a tan
handbag with ruffled layers and a
zebra-print interior, or a hot pink
snakeskin clutch smothered with
silver studs.
Vela's handbags can be pur-
chased for $100 to $120.
She is in the process of working
with local distributors and building
a Web site.

Aspiring designer Laura Vela's handbags lie amid her inspiration -fashion magazines,
sketches and her personal fashion scrapbook. Vela's leather designs are made out of
fabrics from Argentina and are sold for less than $120.

Band plays without gimmicks


By NICOLE LA HOZ
avenue writer

When Theory of a Deadman commands the
stage, there are no frills or gimmicks.
Guitarist Dave Brenner can't describe the
band's live performances. He said it will simply play
40 minutes worth of music this fall and "try to play
it really well."
On Nov. 30, the rock band from Vancouver, Brit-
ish Columbia, and Cavo will open up for Daughtry
on the Leave This Town tour in the O'Connell Cen-
ter. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are
$29.50 to $39.50.
"A lot of the people that are coming to the
Daughtry shows don't know who the hell we are,"
Brenner said. "Hopefully they like what we do."
Before forming band, singer and lead guitarist
Tyler Connolly, bassist Dean Beck and Brenner held
jobs involving glass, water bottles and fire protec-
tion services.
"They were a II fun jobs," Brenner said. "We were
all happyto say good-bye to them."
Because their community was small, Connolly,
Beck and Brenner knew one another far before re-
cording an album.
Connolly's demo tape differed from the others,
however, catching the ear of Nickelback's Chad


Kroeger. He was signed to Kroeger's label, and
the band developed, releasing its self-titled debut
in 2002. "Nothing Could Come Between Us," the
album's hit single, bears strong resemblance to
Nickelback hits with its raspy melodic vocals and
catchy mid-tempo playing.
Theory of a Deadman has since evolved into a
pure rock band.
Brenner said "Scars & Souvenirs," the 2008
record, involved "a lot of jamming." The album re-
mains their focus for now. Members have dabbled
in new material on the side, but they haven't put
any songs together yet, Brenner said.
Aside from music, Theory of a Deadman is in-
volved with the Music Fashion Project. It picks a
"charity style" T-shirt and a portion of purchases
goes to band's favorite music-related charity.
The band has toured with acts like M6tley
CrQe and Godsmack on CrOe Fest 2. Brenner said
he had fun hanging out on that tour because the
bands clicked.
Coming from CrOe Fest, Theory of a Deadman
didn't know what to expect at Daughtry concerts.
Daughtry has been really accepting Brenner said,
and crowds pack into venues by the time it per-
forms.
"They've been digging our music," he said.
"We're happy."


Facebook reveals all


By LAUREN GOLD
avenue contributing writer

In high school, I jealously watched my
older sister on her laptop. She was on Fa-
cebook, a network exclusively for college
kids. I couldn't wait for college if not for
the freedom, then definitely for the col-
lege e-mail address that would grant my
entry into the elite Facebook club.
Fast forward four years, and the world
ison Facebook. When Facebookextended
its membership to high school students,
myfriends and I gladly canceled our MyS-
pace accounts and made the switch.
When my 12-year-old brother logged in,
I was miffed, but I put him on limited pro-
file and moved on. When my friends' hip
mothers picked up on the trend, I ignored
my pangs of annoyance and begrudgingly
accepted their requests.
Now, my mom is begging me to let
her create an account. Though I appreci-
ate her asking my permission, I will deny
her until I am 40. When my 80-year-old
Grandma Hilda popped up as a "Friend
I Might Know," I lost it. What happened


to my prized Facebook world, my online
playground of funny photos and last
night's inside jokes plastered on my page
for my friends and I to enjoy, away from
the prying eyes of our nosy relatives?
What was once the addictive toy for
college students has become the entire
world's new pastime.
Friends of mine have recently disabled
their walls, made their pictures private or
even removed their surname from their
account, all in an effort to preserve their
personal lives. We know that employers
check out job applicants on the Internet.
We must be responsible, but censoring
ourselves makes Facebook lose part of
its entertainment value.
I keep my pictures classy, avoid
crude remarks and prevent anything
even slightly offensive from surfacing on
my Web space, but the online perks of
adolescent life are over. What was once
a simple, social networking tool for stu-
dents has become a database exchange
for professors, parents and even chil-
dren. Social networking is now public
networking.

Donovan goes to

athletic lineup late

HOOPS, from page 19

points. Georgia Southern had played Florida
close the last two years contests UF won by
a combined 10 points and the Eagles' athleti-
cism made it hard for the Gators to get into a
rhythm early on.
"When you have a lopsided win like that, it's
hard to get into a game like we were in today,"
Donovan said. "We needed a game like this. We
didn't need a 35-, 40-point win."
To close out the game, Donovan went to an
athletic, more experienced lineup of point guard
Erving Walker, Boynton, forward Chandler Par-
sons, forward Dan Wemer and power forward
Alex Tyus. That meant taking out junior cen-
ter Vernon Macklin, who put up 15 points and
grabbed seven boards in just 19 minutes of play.
In the final 7:15, that lineup turned a seven-
point lead into a 20-point victory that made the
game seem like more of a blowout than it actu-
ally was.
In addition to wanting some of his veterans
in the game along with Boynton, Donovan also
made the decision to put in a team that could
match up man-to-man with the Eagles and take
away their 3-point shooting, usually the key fac-
tor when smaller schools pull off big upsets.
"The 3-point line concerned me when we had
a seven- or eight-point lead," Donovan said. "A
couple of threes, then the next thing you know,
you've got a one- or two-point lead."

satisfied with the win, as a team we played great de-
fense," Boynton said. "The shots are going to fall. All
we got to do is keep our defensive effort up, and I think
we're really good."
The Gators weren't much better than the Eagles of-
fensively, shooting 34 percent from the field and 2 for 16
(12.5 percent) from beyond the arc.
But Florida's ability to clamp down on defense, get
out in transition (10 fast-break points) and get to the free-
throw line (43 attempts) neutralized any shooting woes.
"We're tough to beat if we do all three of those things
consistently," forward Chandler Parsons said. "It starts
with defense. After that, you have to end each posses-
sion with a rebound."
Parsons led the team with 12 rebounds, including
seven on the defensive end.
After struggling to keep opponents off the offensive
glass in their two exhibition games, the Gators allowed
only nine offensive rebounds to the Eagles and out-
rebounded them 51-33 on the night.
Donovan said that a poor shooting night like this one
could have spelled disaster for his teams in the past two
years, but he was encouraged to see his team find a way
to win convincingly without any shots falling.
Freshman point guard Erving Walker, who shot 0 for
10, said this type of game and new attitude will pay divi-
dends as the season progresses.
"When our shots aren't falling, at least we have de-
fense to fall back on, that's what we understand," Walk-
er said. "We were last in the (Southeastern Conference)
in that last year and we still won nine games last year, so
hopefully if we correct that we can win 11 or 12."

Second-half surge leads Florida to win

0 KENNY BOYNTON HAD 15 OF HIS GAME-
HIGH 22 POINTS AFTER HALFTIME.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@allgator org

When the going got tough, Kenny Boynton got
going.
The freshman guard scored 22 points, nine of
which came from the free-throw line, as Florida (2-
0) overcame a sluggish first half and won a physical
game 69-49 against Georgia Southern on Wednes-
day night in the O'Connell Center.
Boynton's game-high scoring output came on
6-of-12 shooting from the field, including a 1-of-6
performance from 3-point range, but he got to the
free-throw line 13 times against the foul-prone Ea-
gles (1-2).
"I think he's got a little bit of that take-over men-
tality," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "He wants to
go get it, and he wants to go do it. I like that he's like
that. It's important he's like that for our team, then
we can try to channel him the right way."
Georgia Southern's physical play kept Florida
off its game early on, and UF took just a one-point
lead into halftime. But Boynton dropped in 15 in the
second half, when the Gators outscored the Eagles
43-24.
"I think we responded well to the physical play,"
Boynton said. "All we've got to do is keep knocking
down free throws, and that's what we did today."
Boynton and the Gators took advantage of the
Eagles' tight defense by drawing 32 fouls and get-
ting to the free throw line 43 times, making up for
their 2-for-16 performance from beyond the arc and
34 percent shooting for the game.
Overall, Donovan described his team's offense
Wednesday night as "pretty woeful."
"That was part of the reason we probably didn't
shoot as good of a percentage from the field," Dono-
van said. "It just seemed like we were shooting free
throws about every other possession."

Florida shot miserably against
Georgia Southern on Wednesday
night, but the Gators opened up a
20-point win in the second half thanks
to their defense.
The Eagles shot 33 percent from
the field and 22 percent from the

Southern 43-24 in the second half.
Coach Billy Donovan said the

"Yeah, you're concerned a little

Donovan said. "But it's a reinforce-
ment right now they can see very,
very clearly, 'Wow, we ended up
winning by 20 points and look what
we shot from the field and the 3-point
line.' Hopefully that inspires them to
get even more intense and excited."
Freshman guard Kenny Boynton
scored a team-high 22 points but was
more proud of the team's defensive
performance than anything else.

Gators' youth shows as season nears crucial juncture


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer
achiang@alllgatororg

In one of their biggest matches
of the season, a usual strength for
the Gators turned into a weakness.
No. 13 Florida's youth has been
a promising aspect of the team for
most of the season, but the lack of
experience has proven to be a dou-


ble-edged sword.
Although the four starting soph-
omores don't usually play like un-
derclassmen, their youth showed
against LSU.
In Friday's match against the Ti-
gers, the Gators' lack of experience
was exposed as they lost against a
team that featured four starting se-
niors.
UF (20-4, 14-3 Southeastern


Conference) hit
16 service errors
and recorded 25
attack errors in
the match, some-
thing coach Mary
Wise attributed
to the team's
Wise youth.
"There were points where I felt
like maybe we pressed a little bit


too hard which sometimes you see
with a young team," she said. "The
service errors and the amount of
balls we hit out of bounds were in-
dicative of that."
The four sophomores hit seven
of those service errors and only
recorded one ace between them,
while LSU's four seniors only tal-
lied up one error behind the service
line.


After the loss, senior libero Elyse
Cusack pointed toward the Tigers'
experience as one of the reasons
they were able to pull out the win.
"I definitely think so," Cusack
said. "Experienced players play
well in tight situations."
In the final two sets of the match,
there was no confusion as to which
team possessed the group of se-

GATORS SWIMMING

Dwyer looks to add to


early success at UF


By TONI-ANN MILLER
Alligator Writer

It is never too late to make
your dream a reality, and so
Florida junior Conor Dwyer has
proven.
Dwyer transferred to UF after
swimming at Iowa for two years.
While there, he set the school re-
cord in the 100-yard freestyle at
the Big Ten Championships last
season.
Since coming to Florida, he has
picked up right where he left off.
In his first meet this season,
on Oct. 9, the junior won the 200
free, and he has continued to ex-
cel for UF since.
"Conor Dwyer, right now,
has been one of the most pleas-
ant surprises," coach Gregg Troy
said. "He's extremely versatile
and he comes to practice every
day with a great attitude. He's
going to be a big player at the
NCAA (meet)."
Dwyer said he grew up a
Gators fan, but that coming out


of high school, he was not as fast.
Iowa offered him an opportunity
to compete and he made the best
of it. However, one summer in
Gainesville changed everything.
"I was looking for a place to
train over the summer, I had fam-
ily an hour away and I'd been a
Gators fan growing up," Dwyer
said. "I just loved it when I came
here to train, and I decided to
stay."
This weekend he'll have an-
other opportunity to show his
abilities in the pool when UF
splits for the Georgia Tech Invi-
tational today through Saturday,
and the South Carolina Invita-
tional, which runs today and Fri-
day.
UF's women will also break up
and compete in the two meets.
"We have a smaller group on
each side, at each meet, and ev-
eryone has some relay opportu-
nities," Troy said. "It makes us
slightly weaker team-wise, but
we get a better feel for where a
lot of people are."


LSU able to cut down errors

VOLLEY, from page 19

niors.
Both teams struggled in the first two frames with 13 attack
errors each, but the third and fourth sets were the ones that
set the two teams apart. The Gators hit 12 errors in the final
two sets, while LSU was able to make some in-match adjust-
ments and cut their number down to four in the second half
of the match.
One of the sophomores, Colleen Ward, noticed that LSU
had a different mentality than the Gators during the match.
"They definitely have a different type of attitude with all
the seniors that they have," Ward said.
However, Cusack does not want the team to start using
their youth as a crutch.
"In big matches like last week against LSU, our effort was
there and just sometimes we don't execute," she said. "We
might not be the most experienced team, but we can't use that
as an excuse as to why we aren't winning matches."
While the four sophomores were overmatched by LSU's
four seniors on Friday, in a couple of years UF's group will
have the chance to return the favor.
"That core group of sophomores, they are going to be able
to do that to a young team some day," Wise said.


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
UF swimming coach Gregg Troy will split his team this week
to attend the Georgia Tech and South Carolina Invitationals.


Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff
UF sophomore Colleen Ward said she saw LSU's experience play a role in
the Tigers' 3-1 win in Gainesville.


Brown's


season


ends in


injury
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MIAMI Ronnie Brown's
season has ended with an in-
jury again.
The Miami Dolphins' lead-
ing rusher was placed on
injured reserve Wednesday
because of a right foot injury
suffered in Sunday's victory
over Tampa Bay.
A fifth-year pro, Brown
missed the final nine games
of the 2007 season with a right
knee injury.
The Dolphins had hoped
Brown might be able to return
this year but made the roster
move after he was examined
by a specialist. It's a big blow
for a team that ranks fourth in
the NFL in rushing and 30th in
passing.
The move was announced
shortly after the Dolphins (4-5)
departed for Thursday's game
against Carolina. Ricky Wil-
liams, the 2002 NFL rushing
champion, will replace Brown
in the starting lineup.
Brown was on pace for the
best year of his career with
648 yards rushing and eight
touchdowns, and he threw for
another.
He was the triggerman in
the wildcat, and it's uncertain
how much the Dolphins will
use the package with Williams
taking snaps.
Williams has rushed for 558
yards. He's coming off his first
100-yard game of the season
and is averaging a career-best
5.3 yards per carry, but he's 32,
and it's uncertain whether he
can handle a workhorse role.
The backup running back
is now 2008 sixth-round draft
pick Lex Hilliard, who has yet
to carry the ball in the NFL.

You Decide. -0 THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2009 Students, SG take sides over expansion fee USF, FSU have enacted similar fees By CAROLYN TILLO Alligator Staff Writer At the Reitz Union students can gather together, but discussions of a proposed student fee to fund its renovation, repairs and expansion are dividing students and Student Government senators. The proposed fee would include a $20 flat fee for each student in addition to a $3 fee per credit hour, according to Student Body President Jordan Johnson. He said the estimated cost of the renovation and expansion would be about $70 million to $80 million. About $56 million would come from student fees, while the remainder would be paid through Capital Improvement Trust Funds and alumni donations, Johnson said. Out of the $56 million from student fees, about $42.5 million would help fund Reitz Union repairs while the remainder would fund the expansion, Johnson said. Some suggestions for the renovation and expansion include making the building Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certified, expanding student organization space and adding a 1,500-seat theater for dances and events, according to a presentation by Johnson. Johnson said other state schools, including University of South Florida and Florida State University, have used a similar student fee to fund their student unions. Eddie Daniels, the executive director of the Reitz Union, said repairs are necessary regardless of how they are funded. He said the Reitz Union requires $42.5 million over the next 15 years for repairs involving air handling units, plumbing and electrical systems. Daniels said architects met with students, organizations, faculty and staff Nov. 2 through Nov. 5 to take suggestions about what they would like to see added to the union, but SEE REITZ, PAGE 5 ON CAMPUS Improve group will compete in Chicago By NICOLE LYNN GREINER Alligator Contributing Writer Theatre Strike Force doesn't need scripts to get a laugh. About 250 people attended the group's performance of "Unscripted" Wednesday. The show was a celebration of the group's first-place win in the southeastern regional round of the third annual College Improve Tournament. Another performance of "Unscripted" will be held today at 9 p.m. in the Reitz Union Rion Ballroom. The tournament took place in Atlanta on Saturday. Theatre Strike Force sent five of its members, known as the Sunday Group, to compete against eight other southeastern colleges. The group will go to Chicago for the tournament finals on Feb. 6. "I want a national championship for UF in improv," said Jennifer Francis, a senior telecommunication major and member of Theatre Strike Force. In the competition, the group performed two 25-minute improvisation sessions. The group won the first session and went to the final round. Last year the Sunday Group placed second in the regional round. Saturday's performance was similar to the show "Unscripted." The show includes a cast of nine members, three of whom were also members of the Sunday Group. Guest speakers in "Unscripted" were asked random questions about their lives, experiences and dreams. Among the speakers were entomology professor Carl Barfield, former UF track star and Olympic gold medalist Bernard Williams, and Student Body President Jordan Johnson.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 3 Santa Fe College students create amateur fight club 0 MEMBERSHIP IN THE CLUB IS FREE. By JOHN J. BOOTHE Alligator Contributing Writer The first rule about fight club is you do talk about fight club. As mixed martial arts -MMA -continues its fight to become America's No. 1 televised violence supplier, so does the desire of its viewers to learn the secrets and techniques behind every guillotine choke and armbar submission. But the increase in popularity also comes with an increase in demand for training. So, two Santa Fe Community College students are offering an affordable training price for even the tightest budget: free. Amateur kickboxers Trey Tucker, 20, and Jarrod Carmody, 19, started Gainesville Fight Club as a way to teach each others MMA style combat in between their fulltime school and work schedules. The two of them meet several times a week in Carmody's garage where Tucker has $500 worth of mats, gloves, bags and Thai pads. Both fighters describe the club as a cooperative, where each fighter contributes something, whether it is equipment or training techniques, to the group. "If you're poor, we don't care," Tucker said. "Come Local in, man. You can use News our gloves, and we can work something out. We can do car washes or sell GFC T-shirts. The whole point is to show there are other ways to do this than having to charge money." Tucker said his training suits the college lifestyle more than a professional system. Most professional training is geared for people who want to make a career out of MMA. Jason Dolder, head trainer of the F2 Fight Team in Gainesville, said that while it's admirable that Gainesville Fight Club is trying to offer free MMA training, his gym is far from ripping people off. "There's a reason why you pay professionals to teach you this stuff," he said. F2 Fight Team offers training for $55 a month, which, according to Dolder, is very affordable when compared with other MMA gyms. Tucker thinks that even though he and Carmody are relatively new to MMA -their first organized fights in the discipline will be January -the training necessary to start out isn't complicated. Ninety percent of MMA training is relatively simple, he said. For the other 10 percent, such as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and boxing technique, he said the group will pitch in money to hire a professional to lay the groundwork for that month's training.

4, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2009 Group calls for 'Vagina' roles Auditions continue tonight I Lre:w n t auma n r n j Ana Goni-Lessan / Alligator Staff Alicia Marie Rodriguez, an advertising and theater major, auditions for "The Vagina Monologues" in the basement of the Reitz Union on Tuesday night. By JULIE UNGER Alligator Contributing Writer When she was 11 years old, Lorraine Wheat stood in the middle of a bookstore and said, "Guess what, Mom. My vagina is angry." Wheat's mother was familiar with the book her daughter was imitating and calmly explained to her daughter a little bit about the play. Eight years later, Wheat once again announced that her vagina was angry -this time during a play called "The Vagina Monologues" by Eve Ensler. This year, Victory Over Violence, a UF anti-domestic violence organization, will put on its fourth annual production of "The Vagina Monologues" as a fundraiser for organizations like local domestic violence victim shelter Peaceful Paths. "Any woman who wants to be proactive and to fight for human rights, who wants to do great things, wants to be like [Ensler]," said Wheat, an advertising senior and Victory Over Violence public relations officer at UF. Auditions for the 2010 performance began on Tuesday and will continue from 8:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. tonight in the Reitz Union basement, Room 60. "I don't think this is something you can get involved in and it not become your heart." Lorraine Wheat UF student Twenty-eight women auditioned Tuesday, and more are expected to audition tonight. "There are 33 monologues, and we offer anyone that auditions that doesn't get a monologue a spot in public relations, advertising or something else so they can still be involved in the production," said Jenna Calton, Victory Over Violence president and a psychology junior at UF. During the 2008-2009 fiscal year, Peaceful Paths provided services for 1,260 new clients, helped house 128 adults and 90 children and provided 11,701 services, according to the Peaceful Paths 2009 fact sheet. The monologues deal with the pain and shame that women face, whether it's because of their bodies, experiences or surviving abuse. "Eve Ensler uses the work to inspire a grassroots movement which started anti-violence and abuse networks. Vday.org showcases all of the movements and all of the things they're doing. It shows that she's using her work and art to give women who wouldn't be able to express themselves a medium to talk about their pain," Wheat said. She added that her part in the play inspired deep conversations with women who sought her out afterward to say they wished they could express themselves. "After you do this play you feel, 'Why not? Why should I feel ashamed for being a woman?"' Wheat said. "I don't think this is something you can get involved in and it not become your heart."

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 5 1,500 students signed petition in support R EITZ, from page 1 design drawings based on these needs will not be available until February. He said some suggestions included adding more student organization office space, more performing space and more meeting rooms. Daniels said UF has outgrown the union. "So, my hope is we'll be able to somehow get a facility that will better meet the needs of our current student population," Daniels said. Senators passed a resolution supporting the Reitz Union expansion and student fee at Tuesday night's Senate meeting. But some senators and graduate students at the meeting said students should have a chance to vote on the student fee in the spring SG elections. Orange and Blue Party Sen. Jon Ossip said he was not On against the fee or the expansion but wanted to make sure the majority of students approved of the ideas. "I would support whatever the students choose on the ballot," Ossip said. But according to Johnson, having students vote on the fee would delay its journey to the Florida legislature and Gov. Charlie Crist, who would ultimately decide whether it would be put into effect. If it were approved, Johnson said UF would then lobby for capital improvement trust funds and private donations as well. He said about 1,500 students have signed a petition supporting the expansion. In addition, about 3,600 students were surveyed, and Johnson said he plans to have a town hall forum in early December to continue discussions with students.

"I actually don't think it's that big a deal," he said of closing the office. "I don't think it caused a big disruption and if it helped people feel better, then that's fine." Conley's lawyer, Thomas Edwards, said the closure of the office was unwarranted. Edwards said Conley had made no threats to anyone at UF and that the closing was likely influenced by a strained relationship between Conley and Craig. "There was no connection between what took place between he and his wife and the department chair closing down the Conley department," he said. He said the reference to past violent threats in Craig's email likely alluded to allegations made by Conley's ex-wife during divorce proceedings that began in 2006. According to Edwards, the allegations, which Conley said are untrue, were made to gain leverage in a custody battle. Craig referred comment to UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes, who said her ability to comment was limited because the issue was a personnel matter.

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2009 Fee-for-All SG should get student input on new Reitz fee uesday's Student Government vote on the proposed Reitz Union expansion has stirred up almost as much interest (and as many impassioned letters and Web site comments) as SG's pending decision on a resolution denouncing the Goldstone report, the controversial UN report alleging Israeli war crimes. For those of you somehow not already offended by the Alligator's coverage of this report -and we know there must be a few of you left out there -look to future issues. But this week, rather than grandiose matters of war and peace in the Middle East, SG tackled a subject that it may actually hold some influence over. unfortunately. This resolution, which supports a student fee for the renovation and expansion of the Reitz Union (and effectively endorses the expansion itself), passed 6710, despite fierce debate. The fact that letters to the Alligator describe this debate as "grad-student whining" underscores how differently some parties view the proposed fees. A $20 dollar flat fee plus $3 per credit hour might sound like chump change. But if it does, you're likely not one of about 75 students who appeared to voice concerns about rising student fees. These whiners, many of whom are grad students without Bright Futures or Florida Prepaid to help ease costs, pay significant amounts out of pocket toward student fees. One graduate assistant in the English department says her student fees account for up to 10 percent of her salary. Another $100 dollars a year might not mean much for SG senators or persistent, anonymous letter writers, but to someone on a razor thin budget, it can make a difference. The fact that SG is voting on how to pay for a renovation and expansion before it determines whether the Student Body even wants -or needs -these changes leaves us with the same look of shock and bewilderment that uninformed students will have if slapped with new fees. SG members cite a petition signed by 1,500 students as evidence that UF wants (and needs?) a new and improved Reitz Union. We can picture how that went down almost like we were badgered outside of Library West ourselves: grand promises without a complete explanation of the financial impact on all students. As for the argument that student organizations desperately need more office and meeting space, we still wonder how the empty halls and meeting rooms that make the Reitz look like a ghost town factor into SG's assessment. If the Reitz wants to "better meet the needs of our current student population," as its executive director Eddie Daniels described the expansion's goal, why not first focus on making maximum use of the current facilities. UF can accomplish this goal by involving students (other than a few SG members) in the process, receiving feedback along the way to make better informed decisions. Daniels said that architects tasked with planning the proposed expansion met with students, organizations, faculty and staff earlier this month; we wonder what limited group of students these architects met with. We didn't receive an invitation. (Go figure.) UF and SG's lack of transparency in planning Reitz changes merely aggravates all of these issues. Student fees, determining critical needs. whether changes are necessary at all; we need public discussion on these key points. UF is a learning institution; it is ironic that we simultaneously cut dozens of faculty and staff members while constructing new and possibly unnecessary buildings. Students need a voice in this decision, especially if millions of dollars are involved. Fortunately this resolution does not take any ac Lion. It merely reflects the opinion of the Senate. We're not quite sure that it reflects the opinion of the UF Student Body, though. a l l e independent fo rida Kristin Bjornsen EDITOR Brian Kelley Jennifer Jenkins MANAGING EDITORS Will Olsen OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must includethe author's name, classification and phone number Names will be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105W University Aye, or send them to P0 Box 14257, Gainesvi Iie, FL 32604-2257 i umns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

Pray for Levi. While my main gripe with Sarah Palin is her wanton disregard for the tradition of giving children sensible names, her advocacy of Levi Johnston as worthy of prayerful worship seems a negligent reading of Heavenly duties. Prayers showered upon the healthy, virile white teenager swimming in pistachio money surely fall upon deaf ears. Perhaps she is emboldened by a reading of some more vengeful God, more of an Old Testament deity. This God surely would read our prayers as time to test the faith of young Levi and arrange a severe comeuppance full of wrath and afflictions. This same God has infected the mind of Goldman Sachs Chief Executive Officer Lloyd Blankfein, who in a long London Times interview snidely remarked that earth-shatteringly horrible banking of the last derivative decade is "God's work." Pray for Levi. Pray for Lloyd, too. Pray that we get some follow-through of good Ole' Testament rocket sauce from these mournful missives. Lloyd and his like-minded accomplices surely do their bidding tempting the good graces of Genesis god, a holy figure always ready with a good hard smiting. Some bloodfire, maybe a few public stonings -our prayers do not ask for much. We should keep optimism up that our prayers shall not be in vain once sent to the correct sacred source. Based on their conscienceless money grubbing, our economy got circumsized last fall with no anesthesia. Old Testament God must appreciate this surprise bris and may recognize our rightfully embattled banking sector as true believers. Americans were certainly complicit in conjuring up the subprime Tommy Ma pie bomb that inflated our net worth and letters@alligator org our sense of ideological imperviousness, but the capitalist class raging out ahead of us deserves scorn and scrutiny for this nuclear economic winter. We fought the battles and lost much of our livelihoods, but they seem to have somehow won the war and rocketed off in a billion-dollar escape pod. Pray for Lloyd. Don't forget to pray for Levi, though. I prayed for Britney back in the day, and she got through her bald tribulations relatively unscathed. Britney Spears is a hard-working girl who loved that spotlight so badly that she sacrificed a few sham marriages to the fame game. Levi may not be able to sing as of now, but even the least-accomplished fame whore knows a good vocal coach. My own prayers for Levi are centered around his inevitable marriage to Britney Spears and the creation of a band starring his kids and Britney's kids. Made for MTV and the accompanying decades of televised group therapy, this superband could single-handedly rewrite the scale for total awesomeness. Levi won't stop at just one illegitimate child, mind you -but the Partridge family wasn't created in a day.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Senators disregarded students' wishes I'd like to express my utter disgust at the student senators who completely disregarded their student constituents last night. More than 70 students attended the Senate meeting in opposition of a resolution that would support UF administration charging all students a fee for the expansion and renovation of the Reitz Union. Majority party senators approved this bill while simultaneously rejecting a proposed amendment that would bring it to a Student Body referendum. It is understood that the repairs are necessary. The expansion, however, is debatable pork. Although the majority party senators were quick to vote for this resolution, they were not so quick to provide us with concrete estimates of the costs students would have to shoulder. In fact, many of the estimates completely ignored the additional millions of dollars in costs that would be the responsibility of the Student Body (more than $120 million). Yes, everybody wants the luxury of a beautiful union, but should it be at the expense of other students' groceries, gas and ability to continue their education at UF? With such a controversial issue, students should have spoken out, and they did -only to be told their opinion was irrelevant. Instead of participating in debate, most senators were busy texting on their BlackBerrys and iPhones. Senators, it would be nice if you considered the people who originally gave you authority. Karla Rowe UF student Reitz Union needs renovations The Alligator never seems to disappoint. Wednesday's article "Senate approves Reitz Union student expansion fee" left out some important facts in the case for the Reitz Union renovation and expansion. For instance, a petition was signed by about 1,500 students in less than 24 hours in support of the renovation and the student fee to pay for it. That would seem to outweigh the 70 or so graduate students who attended Tuesday night's Senate meeting. The Reitz Union is in dire need of renovation and expansion. It was built in 1967 for 19,000 students, and UF now has more than 50,000. Many of the systems, including the electrical and air conditioning systems, are original to the building's construction. If those systems fail there is not nearly enough money in reserve to fix even one of them. Not to mention the asbestos in the walls and ceilings and the energy inefficiencies of the 1960s-era equipment. If we delay further, the cost of the project will increase, leading to a further increase in the student fee. This would place even more of a burden on students, undergraduate and graduate alike. The question has never been should we renovate and expand the Reitz Union, it's just when. That time is now. Severin Waistad UF freshman and Springs Area Senator Current students won't see benefits of Reitz Union expansion, renovation The Student Senate should not have approved the resolution favoring the implementation of a new fee to pay for the proposed expansion of the Reitz Union. The proposed fees would (I believe) take effect before the completion of renovation of the Reitz Union. Few, if any, current UF students would still be here when the renovation is complete, yet we would not only have to put up with the inconvenience of dealing with the construction work on the union, but also have to pay fees for a renovation that doesn't benefit us. I frequently attend the free movies at the union (yea, RUB). There might be a period where we have to go without free movies while the cinema is renovated -and Senate wants us to pay a fee for that inconvenience. Eating at the food court will be more difficult while the renovation takes place -and Senate wants us to pay a fee for that inconvenience. If the union must be renovated, and if the renovation must be paid for with student fees, then those fees should not be implemented until the renovation is complete. The students who actually get to enjoy the (supposed) benefits of the expanded union should be the ones to pay for it. Finally, I don't even think the union needs to be expanded. I can see that the asbestos needs to be removed. By all means, please remove the asbestos from the union. That shouldn't cost enough to warrant a new fee, though. The Senate bill repeatedly mentions UF's more than 900 student organizations, many of which do not have office space in the union. But how many of them really need office space? I've held three different officer positions in the Linguistics Society in my time at UF, and we have never had or needed any office space. I can say confidently that no more than 10 percent -and quite possibly no more than 5 percent -of UF's student organizations would actually use office space. I say, just remove the asbestos and leave the rest of the union as it is. Zoe Ziliak UF PhD candidate in linguistics Renovations will improve quality of UF In response to the expansion and renovation of the Reitz Union, I would like to express support, despite the objections raised concerning extra fees. Another beautiful and utilitarian building on the UF campus further fortifies the quality and progress that distinguishes Florida from other higher learning institutions. In a true Burkean sense, the pride and usefulness from the expansion will far outweigh the cost. So while we may be a bit lighter in the pocket, we will have another quality addition to our already noble campus. Florida's rise to a premier university has always had costs. This is no different. Zack Faza UFstudent US efforts against terrorism are war This is in response to Wednesday's letter to the editor "'War on terror' not a war." I must disagree with Patrick Poage's position that calling our "global effort to eliminate terrorists" a war allows al-Qaida and others to justify their actions against our country and our soldiers. Poage, like many others, seems to have forgotten the terrorist attacks happened prior to our terming of the effort to prevent them a "war." In the cases of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the bombing of the U.SS. Cole and the Sept. 11 attacks, among other incidents, the terrorists didn't wait for us to "justify" them before attacking us. Poage also noted that the Obama administration dropped the term "war on terror." In response, I ask: If our leaders are unwilling to use strong language to describe this "global effort," how can we assume that they will take strong action to succeed in this conflict? John Colby UFstudent U U U Preachers shouldn't mask messages This morning, while I strolled through Turlington Plaza, I was delighted to see that people were handing out copies of "The Origin of Species" by Charles Darwin. This seemed a vast improvement over coupons and fliers. Then I opened the book and found the "special introduction" urging me to accept an intelligent designer and "receive the gift of eternal life." Like any article wishing to spread doubt, it did not state its true intentions up front. Gradually, selective quotations were used and unscientific (but reasonable-sounding) arguments were made against evolution until the reader reached the Living Waters' true message: Jesus. Evolution is a fascinating process that ties together and enforces every biology course I've taken at UF. As it says on a door in Bartram Hall, it's very gradual change that you can believe in. I urge any students genuinely interested in evolution to either ignore the slander against Darwin and evolution or, even better, to find out for themselves. This isn't a matter of Christianity versus evolution, as if people can't believe both. It's possible. However, if you're going to try to convert people, Ray Comfort, you shouldn't hide your religious tract behind a book praised by scientists all over the world. Preach out in the open or don't preach at all. Rebecca Theobald UFstudent MASTERWORKS CONCERTS 8'Annual "Got Beethoven?"

MtvU Woodie Awards recognizes popular, new artists By ALEX ORLANDO avenue writer What does ittake to gain Woodie status? Bands will compete at the 2009 mtvU Woodie Awards, a showcase of performers made popular on college campuses. Performers will include Asher Roth, Death Cab for Cutie, Matt and Kim, The Dead Weather and 30H!3 this year. The awards show, now in its sixth year, aired live Wednesday at the Roseland Ballroom and will air on MTV on Dec. 4 at 10 p.m. EST. The Avenue participated in a college conference call on Nov. 10 with artists who are nominated for the award. "We think it's a way for us to call our artists that are having a huge impact in college campuses and respond to the attention that the artists are getting from the college audience," said Eric Conte, the executive producer of the Woodie Awards, during the conference call. Conte also said he sees college audiences as a "crystal ball as far as music prediction." Bands such as Fall Out Boy and The Academy Is have been nominated for Woodies in years past, on their way to larger crowds and more recognition. Newer musicians note the Woodies as a landmark on their music careers. "It's really been a journey," said Asher Roth, known on college campuses for his song "I Love College." "Being nominated for Woodie of the Year-it's really kind of remarkable to see and step back and watch it all happen." Some of the artists say putting on a better live show has helped them gain a solid college fan base. "We try to adjust the show and make it a little bit more epic for a bigger crowd and have fun in different ways," said Nathaniel Motte of 30H!3, nominated for Best Performing Woodie. "It's really been a journey. Being nominated for Woodie of tha 9 zar-it's really kind of remarkable to see and step back and watch it all happen." ASHER ROTH musician Other artists attribute their stunning and relatable videos to their success on college campuses. "It's more about everybody, you know?" said Roth, who noted the importance of relating to all crowds on campus with his music. "I think it forces you to think a little harder," said Matt Johnson, of Matt and Kim, who said he had to beg his bandmate, Kim Schifino, to appear naked with him in Times Square to shoot a music video for their song "Lessons Learned." The video is nominated for Best Video Woodie this year. The video is relevant to college students who are generally "more open to doing wild things" at that time of their lives, according to Johnson, who refers to American colleges as "communities of taste." Matt and Kim will likely be performing a clothed version of "Lessons Learned" at the Woodies. Other performers include The Dead Weather, also up for Best Video Woodie, and Death Cab For Cutie. Death Cab For Cutie is scheduled to perform "Meet Me on the Equinox" at the Woodies, which appears on the "New Moon" soundtrack. The Dead Weather has not released which song they will perform. However, the Woodies are not meant to be a "march to the mainstream," Conte said. Still, Conte said he doesn't think artists should limit themselves just to stay out of the limelight. "[The artists] want to continue making music for themselves," he said. "As long as there's an appreciation going back and forth, I think that's what the ultimate goal is for someone." Even artists who have gained mainstream recognition see the Woodies as an easier alternative to winning the music industry's more prestigious awards. "Tony Bennett wins Grammys," said Chris Walla, guitarist for Death Cab For Cutie. "It just doesn't seem like it's our job to win Grammys."

Hawthorne Heights reborn By NICOLE LA HOZ avenue writer The members of Hawthorne Heights have always been driven to form a solid band. It doesn't stem from a hunger for success, though. To the Dayton, Ohio, rock band, playing music is a therapeutic escape. While the band battled lawsuits and countersuits with Victory Records Inc., the ultimate tragedy struck them in 2007: Guitarist and longtime friend Casey Calvert was found dead on the band's tour bus from accidental mixture of prescribed medication. "The one thing that got us through was music," drummer Eron Bucciarelli said. "That was the one thing that wasn't dependent on waiting on a lawyer's phone call or anything else." The band members penned down thoughts, strummed out emotions and pounded out troubles. Bucciarelli said music "was one sort of safe place we could all go and meet up." Through instrumental remedy, Hawthorne Heights rose above its adversities. "Skeletons" is the fourth release from the band due early next year. During the Never Sleep Again Tour, Hawthorne Heights will stop at Common Grounds on Nov. 22 with Just Surrender, Punchline, Monty Are I and Night Beast. Tickets are $13 in advance and $15 the day of. Doors open at 6 p.m. The band sees smaller venues as a revival because fans get a chance to reconnect with members as they preview the album. The shows on Never Sleep Again are "way more intimate" and consist of high energy performance from every band, ideal for fans who haven't seen them live in four to six years, Bucciarelli said. "This is all new to us again. It's great," he said. "Skeletons" places the band in a delicate predicament, however. While its 2004 platinum debut, "The Silence in Black and White," and follow-up success, "If Only You Were Lonely," boom with catchy screamo rock tracks, lastyear's "Fragile Future" was Hawthorne Heights' outlet for dealingwith Calvert's passing. The sudden reconciliation with Victory Records led to a rushed release, and many fans were unaware of it. Bucciarelli said he and the band worry about "die-hard" fans' reactions to "Skeletons." Their tastes and influences might have changed since "If Only You Were Lonely," he said. "To maintain relevance you have to continuously evolve and change your music," Bucciarelli said. "A lot of fans have grown since then, so hopefully their tastes evolved too." The band spent months working on a song, Bucciarelli said, and each is unique. "You have different vibes going on in this album, some heavier and darker vibes," Bucciarelli said. "Skeletons" remains a secret until the show. Bucciarelli said he does not want to give too much away and humbly mentioned that the band has expanded its sound and tried new things. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2009 +ALLIGATOR, 9 Musician creates acoustic tour By JOEY FLECHAS avenue writer Sometimes, simplicity can feel startlingly fresh. Hot Water Music veteran Chuck Ragan has run away with the idea, organizingthe second year of The Revival Tour, a group of more than 20 artists collaborating on acoustic music. The tour will stop in Gainesville Friday night at the Common Grounds. Doors open at 9 p.m. The show will feature artists like Ragan, Jon Snodgrass, Jim Ward and Gainesville native Jon Gaunt sharingthe stage in various combinations, singing and playing on one another's tunes freely. "It's super simple, nothing that's never been done before," Ragan said. Harking back to a Rolling Thunder Revue-style spirit, this year's lineup features a disparate group of musicians, from folksters to bluegrass players to Americana crooners. With an average of 10 musicians on the bus on any given stretch of the tour, Ragan has found that putting it all together is as rewarding as it is difficult. "I must say, as a musician, it has been probably the most enjoyable way of touring I've done in my life and probably the most challenging," he said. A goal for the musicians is to forsake the traditional structure of shows, with the predictable opening acts, breaks and headliners. Ragan wants to leave behind all of that monotony. "When the show starts, we present everyone from the beginning. There's no ego on this run. We don't care who's going to play first or who's goingto play last," he said. With all of the players throwing caution to the wind, new collaborations spring up every night, and newcomers get to show off their chops. One of those newcomers is the first and only woman to join The Revival Tour, Audra Mae. Ragan invited Mae to join after he heard her music on her MySpace page. He eventually proved instrumental in her getting a record deal. At 25 years old, the gentle-voiced singer and songwriter is glad to bring well-roundedness to the tour as a woman and as the youngest performer, and she's thankful that the guys have been nurturing, she said. "The guys have been super protective," she said. Friday's show is a sort of homecomingfor Ragan, who spent 10 years living here while playing in Hot Water Music. He loves coming back to the scene that nurtured his musical ambitions for years, he said. "We have a lot of dear friends there. There's normally never enough time to do all the fishing I want to do," he chuckled.

By GABRIELA IZARRA avenue contributing writer It's 2:20 a.m. Saturday and I'm sitting in a booth at the Waffle House on Archer Road with Anthony Raneri, lead singer and rhythm guitarist of Bayside, and Brian Diaz, the band's guitar tech.

Laura Vela, 23, is selling one-ofa-kind handbags to women like herself -those who love fashion and see it as a form of self-expression but don't want to be seen like everyone else. The Barcelona native and aspiring designer will be in Gainesville until August studying business through UF's graduate international exchange program. "Fashion for me, whenever I think about it, is a way of escaping what is going on in the world," Vela said. Vela, who studies executive management and fashion marketing at ESADE, a business school in Spain, is taking a break from business to launch her own fashion line. "I've always wanted to do something creative, but I am also aware of how difficult it is to be someone in this world," Vela said about her new venture. She already has one foot in the industry: Vela studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and contributed to Teen Vogue. She has also styled A-list celebrities while working at American Rebel PR, including Jessica Alba, Leighton Meester, Ed Westwick, Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan and Zac Efron. Vela started designing handbags four weeks ago, by accident. After designing two bags just for fun, hoards of compliments sparked the young designer to consider starting a business. The rest came naturally. "I just started drawing," Vela said osu UIRD(D@lb. va @ tl THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2009 + ALLIGATOR, 1 1 about the beginning designs for her handbags. "At FIT I was taking fashion-related classes, like styling or upcoming trends, but not fashion design." Vela's personalized handbags master the ability of combining high fashion with high quality. She plans on targeting women who look for individuality in the accessories they buy, something they can't find at stores like Forever 21, she said. "I wantbto make the girl who wears my bag to feel special and unique," Vela said. "And since I want to sell a purse that is unique, I want it to be good quality." Vela hand-picks the materials used in producing her Fashion handbags from fabric stores in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She only uses real leather or snakeskin. The extra embellishments, such as silver studs and zippers, come from Los Angeles or vintage stores. Vela says the bags are expected to last at least five years. Vela says her designs are the perfect complement to a simple outfit. So far, there is no precise style to her line of handbags, which is the point. Vela makes each design different so that there is variety. "If today I am in a rock and roll kind of mood, the black stud purse would be perfect," Vela said regarding the imagination she tries to create to go along with her bags. Her first design, for example, is a muted colored snakeskin clutch in baby blue, gray and mauve. Some of her newer designs include a tan handbag with ruffled layers and a zebra-print interior, or a hot pink snakeskin clutch smothered with silver studs. Vela's handbags can be purchased for $100 to $120. She is in the process of working with local distributors and building a Web site.

12, ALLIGATOR+ THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2009 Band plays without gimmicks By NICOLE LA HOZ avenue writer When Theory of a Deadman commands the stage, there are no frills or gimmicks. Guitarist Dave Brenner can't describe the band's live performances. He said it will simply play 40 minutes worth of music this fall and "try to play it really well." On Nov. 30, the rock band from Vancouver, British Columbia, and Cavo will open up for Daughtry on the Leave This Town tour in the O'Connell Center. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $29.50 to $39.50. "A lot of the people that are coming to the Daughtry shows don't know who the hell we are," Brenner said. "Hopefully they like what we do." Before forming a band, singer and lead guitarist Tyler Connolly, bassist Dean Beck and Brenner held jobs involving glass, water bottles and fire protection services. "They were all fun jobs," Brenner said. "We were all happyto say good-bye to them." Because their community was small, Connolly, Beck and Brenner knew one another far before recording an album. Connolly's demo tape differed from the others, however, catching the ear of Nickelback's Chad Kroeger. He was signed to Kroeger's label, and the band developed, releasing its self-titled debut in 2002. "Nothing Could Come Between Us," the album's hit single, bears strong resemblance to Nickelback hits with its raspy melodic vocals and catchy mid-tempo playing. Theory of a Deadman has since evolved into a pure rock band. Brenner said "Scars & Souvenirs," the 2008 record, involved "a lot of jamming." The album remains their focus for now. Members have dabbled in new material on the side, but they haven't put any songs together yet, Brenner said. Aside from music, Theory of a Deadman is involved with the Music Fashion Project. It picks a "charity style" T-shirt and a portion of purchases goes to band's favorite music-related charity. The band has toured with acts like M6tley Crue and Godsmack on CrQe Fest 2. Brenner said he had fun hanging out on that tour because the bands clicked. Coming from CrQe Fest, Theory of a Deadman didn't know what to expect at Daughtry concerts. Daughtry has been really accepting Brenner said, and crowds pack into venues by the time it performs. "They've been digging our music," he said. "We're happy." Facebook reveals all By LAUREN GOLD avenue contributing writer In high school, I jealously watched my older sister on her laptop. She was on Facebook, a network exclusively for college kids. I couldn't wait for college -if not for the freedom, then definitely for the college e-mail address that would grant my entry into the elite Facebook club. Fast forward four years, and the world ison Facebook. When Facebookextended its membership to high school students, myfriends and I gladly canceled our MySpace accounts and made the switch. When my 12-year-old brother logged in, I was miffed, but I put him on limited profile and moved on. When my friends' hip mothers picked up on the trend, I ignored my pangs of annoyance and begrudgingly accepted their requests. Now, my mom is begging me to let her create an account. Though I appreciate her asking my permission, I will deny her until I am 40. When my 80-year-old Grandma Hilda popped up as a "Friend I Might Know," I lost it. What happened to my prized Facebook world, my online playground of funny photos and last night's inside jokes plastered on my page for my friends and I to enjoy, away from the prying eyes of our nosy relatives? What was once the addictive toy for college students has become the entire world's new pastime. Friends of mine have recently disabled their walls, made their pictures private or even removed their surname from their account, all in an effort to preserve their personal lives. We know that employers check out job applicants on the Internet. We must be responsible, but censoring ourselves makes Facebook lose part of its entertainment value. I keep my pictures classy, avoid crude remarks and prevent anything even slightly offensive from surfacing on my Web space, but the online perks of adolescent life are over. What was once a simple, social networking tool for students has become a database exchange for professors, parents and even children. Social networking is now public networking.

18, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2009 Donovan goes to athletic lineup late HOOPS, from page 19 points. Georgia Southern had played Florida close the last two years -contests UF won by a combined 10 points -and the Eagles' athleticism made it hard for the Gators to get into a rhythm early on. "When you have a lopsided win like that, it's hard to get into a game like we were in today," Donovan said. "We needed a game like this. We didn't need a 35-, 40-point win." To close out the game, Donovan went to an athletic, more experienced lineup of point guard Erving Walker, Boynton, forward Chandler Parsons, forward Dan Werner and power forward Alex Tyus. That meant taking out junior center Vernon Macklin, who put up 15 points and grabbed seven boards in just 19 minutes of play. In the final 7:15, that lineup turned a sevenpoint lead into a 20-point victory that made the game seem like more of a blowout than it actually was. In addition to wanting some of his veterans in the game along with Boynton, Donovan also made the decision to put in a team that could match up man-to-man with the Eagles and take away their 3-point shooting, usually the key factor when smaller schools pull off big upsets. "The 3-point line concerned me when we had a sevenor eight-point lead," Donovan said. "A couple of threes, then the next thing you know, you've got a oneor two-point lead." | .\ Steven H. Keys / Alligator Forward Chandler Parsons shoots during UF's 69-49 win over Georga Southern in the O'Connell Center on Wednesday. Parsons' team-high 12 rebounds help Gators keep Eagles off glass DEFENSE, from page 19 satisfied with the win, as a team we played great defense," Boynton said. "The shots are going to fall. All we got to do is keep our defensive effort up, and I think we're really good." The Gators weren't much better than the Eagles offensively, shooting 34 percent from the field and 2 for 16 (12.5 percent) from beyond the arc. But Florida's ability to clamp down on defense, get out in transition (10 fast-break points) and get to the freethrow line (43 attempts) neutralized any shooting woes. "We're tough to beat if we do all three of those things consistently," forward Chandler Parsons said. "It starts with defense. After that, you have to end each possession with a rebound." Parsons led the team with 12 rebounds, including seven on the defensive end. After struggling to keep opponents off the offensive glass in their two exhibition games, the Gators allowed only nine offensive rebounds to the Eagles and outrebounded them 51-33 on the night. Donovan said that a poor shooting night like this one could have spelled disaster for his teams in the past two years, but he was encouraged to see his team find a way to win convincingly without any shots falling. Freshman point guard Erving Walker, who shot 0 for 10, said this type of game and new attitude will pay dividends as the season progresses. "When our shots aren't falling, at least we have defense to fall back on, that's what we understand," Walker said. "We were last in the (Southeastern Conference) in that last year and we still won nine games last year, so hopefully if we correct that we can win 11 or 12."

Sports THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2009 Second-half surge leads Florida to win 0 KENNY BOYNTON HAD 15 OF HIS GAMEHIGH 22 POINTS AFTER HALFTIME. By ADAM BERRY Alligator Staff Writer a be rry@alIlIigator org When the going got tough, Kenny Boynton got going. The freshman guard scored 22 points, nine of which came from the free-throw line, as Florida (20) overcame a sluggish first half and won a physical game 69-49 against Georgia Southern on Wednesday night in the O'Connell Center. Boynton's game-high scoring output came on 6-of-12 shooting from the field, including a 1-of-6 performance from 3-point range, but he got to the free-throw line 13 times against the foul-prone Eagles (1-2). "I think he's got a little bit of that take-over mentality," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "He wants to go get it, and he wants to go do it. I like that he's like that. It's important he's like that for our team, then we can try to channel him the right way." Georgia Southern's physical play kept Florida off its game early on, and UF took just a one-point lead into halftime. But Boynton dropped in 15 in the second half, when the Gators outscored the Eagles 43-24. "I think we responded well to the physical play," Boynton said. "All we've got to do is keep knocking down free throws, and that's what we did today." Boynton and the Gators took advantage of the Eagles' tight defense by drawing 32 fouls and getting to the free throw line 43 times, making up for their 2-for-16 performance from beyond the arc and 34 percent shooting for the game. Overall, Donovan described his team's offense Wednesday night as "pretty woeful." "That was part of the reason we probably didn't shoot as good of a percentage from the field," Donovan said. "It just seemed like we were shooting free throws about every other possession." Donovan attributed some of his team's first-half Rayiaz Khan / Alligator Staff struggles to its exhibition and season-opening vicUF guard Kenny Boynton shoots the ball over Georgia Southern forward Rory tories, which the Gators won by an average of 43 Spencer during Florida's 69-49 win in the O'Connell Center on Wednesday. SEE HOOPS, PAGE 18 ALLIGATOR www.aIligatorSports.org Gators' youth shows as season nears crucial juncture By ANTHONY CHIANG Alligator Writer achiang@alligator org In one of their biggest matches of the season, a usual strength for the Gators turned into a weakness. No. 13 Florida's youth has been a promising aspect of the team for most of the season, but the lack of experience has proven to be a double-edged sword. Although the four starting sophomores don't usually play like underclassmen, their youth showed against LSU. In Friday's match against the Tigers, the Gators' lack of experience was exposed as they lost against a team that featured four starting seniors. UF (20-4, 14-3 Southeastern Conference) hit 16 service errors and recorded 25 attack errors in the match, something coach Mary Wise attributed to the team's youth. "There were points where I felt like maybe we pressed a little bit too hard which sometimes you see with a young team," she said. "The service errors and the amount of balls we hit out of bounds were indicative of that." The four sophomores hit seven of those service errors and only recorded one ace between them, while LSU's four seniors only tallied up one error behind the service After the loss, senior libero Elyse Cusack pointed toward the Tigers' experience as one of the reasons they were able to pull out the win. "I definitely think so," Cusack said. "Experienced players play well in tight situations."

Defense erases poor shooting By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Staff Writer kmastri@alligator org Florida shot miserably against Georgia Southern on Wednesday night, but the Gators opened up a 20-point win in the second half thanks to their defense. The Eagles shot 33 percent from the field and 22 percent from the 3-point line, as UF outscored Georgia Southern 43-24 in the second half. Coach Billy Donovan said the Gators will be able to take more away from their strong defensive effort Men's than a crowdBasketball pleasing blowout that might not force the team to work as hard. "Yeah, you're concerned a little bit, you want to shoot the ball better," Donovan said. "But it's a reinforcement right now they can see very, very clearly, 'Wow, we ended up winning by 20 points and look what we shot from the field and the 3-point line.' Hopefully that inspires them to get even more intense and excited."

20, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2009 GATORS SWIMMING Dwyer looks to add to early success at UF By TONI-ANN MILLER Alligator Writer It is never too late to make your dream a reality, and so Florida junior Conor Dwyer has proven. Dwyer transferred to UF after swimming at Iowa for two years. While there, he set the school record in the 100-yard freestyle at the Big Ten Championships last season. Since coming to Florida, he has picked up right where he left off. In his first meet this season, on Oct. 9, the junior won the 200 free, and he has continued to excel for UF since. "Conor Dwyer, right now, has been one of the most pleasant surprises," coach Gregg Troy said. "He's extremely versatile and he comes to practice every day with a great attitude. He's going to be a big player at the NCAA (meet)." Dwyer said he grew up a Gators fan, but that coming out of high school, he was not as fast. Iowa offered him an opportunity to compete and he made the best of it. However, one summer in Gainesville changed everything. "I was looking for a place to train over the summer, I had family an hour away and I'd been a Gators fan growing up," Dwyer said. "I just loved it when I came here to train, and I decided to stay." This weekend he'll have another opportunity to show his abilities in the pool when UF splits for the Georgia Tech Invitational today through Saturday, and the South Carolina Invitational, which runs today and Friday. UF's women will also break up and compete in the two meets. "We have a smaller group on each side, at each meet, and everyone has some relay opportunities," Troy said. "It makes us slightly weaker team-wise, but we get a better feel for where a lot of people are." LSU able to cut down errors VOLLEY, from page 19 niors. Both teams struggled in the first two frames with 13 attack errors each, but the third and fourth sets were the ones that set the two teams apart. The Gators hit 12 errors in the final two sets, while LSU was able to make some in-match adjustments and cut their number down to four in the second half of the match. One of the sophomores, Colleen Ward, noticed that LSU had a different mentality than the Gators during the match. "They definitely have a different type of attitude with all the seniors that they have," Ward said. However, Cusack does not want the team to start using their youth as a crutch. "In big matches like last week against LSU, our effort was there and just sometimes we don't execute," she said. "We might not be the most experienced team, but we can't use that as an excuse as to why we aren't winning matches." While the four sophomores were overmatched by LSU's four seniors on Friday, in a couple of years UF's group will have the chance to return the favor. "That core group of sophomores, they are going to be able to do that to a young team some day," Wise said.

Brown's season ends in injury THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MIAMI -Ronnie Brown's season has ended with an injuryagain. The Miami Dolphins' leading rusher was placed on injured reserve Wednesday because of a right foot injury suffered in Sunday's victory over Tampa Bay. A fifth-year pro, Brown missed the final nine games of the 2007 season with a right knee injury. The Dolphins had hoped Brown might be able to return this year but made the roster move after he was examined by a specialist. It's a big blow for a team that ranks fourth in the NFL in rushing and 30th in passing. The move was announced shortly after the Dolphins (4-5) departed for Thursday's game against Carolina. Ricky Williams, the 2002 NFL rushing champion, will replace Brown in the starting lineup. Brown was on pace for the best year of his career with 648 yards rushing and eight touchdowns, and he threw for another. He was the triggerman in the wildcat, and it's uncertain how much the Dolphins will use the package with Williams taking snaps. Williams has rushed for 558 yards. He's coming off his first 100-yard game of the season and is averaging a career-best 5.3 yards per carry, but he's 32, and it's uncertain whether he can handle a workhorse role. The backup running back is now 2008 sixth-round draft pick Lex Hilliard, who has yet to carry the ball in the NFL. Doubletree Hotel. .We're more than just a cookie! Use Rate Code: SEC.
