Murals honor struggle for social equality
*"- THE MURALS WERE PAINTED ON 12
COLUMNS IN THE DOWNTOWN BUS STATION.

By KATHERINE BEIN
Alligator Writer

Twelve columns of the Rosa Parks Downtown Re-
gional Transfer Station were dedicated Tuesday to hon-
r or prominent civil rights leaders.
Over the last five weeks, the columns, located at 700
, SE Third St., were painted with vivid murals that depict
various landmarks in the struggle for social equality.
Park's refusal to give up her bus seat, Dr. King's
speeches, the March on Washington, the desegregation
of schools, and the bus boycott are all represented. The
final column features portraits of U.S. Presidents Abra-
ham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Barack Obama and Sen.
Robert Kennedy.
Massachusetts-based artist Alan Pearsall was com-
missioned by the City of Gainesville Parks, Recreation
& Cultural Affairs Art in Public Places Trust Advisory
Board to create the murals, which wrap around the col-
umns.
The wraparound design is meant to encourage visi-
tors to walk around and read the accompanying narra-
tives that explain the painted scenes, Pearsall said.
"Accessible to old and young alike, the history can be
gathered in a creative way by viewing, reading or both,"
Pearsall said in a written statement.
Pearsall could not attend the dedication ceremony as
he was recently involved in an automobile accident. He

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Court justices approved


By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
and DANIELLA DORCELUS
Alligator Writers
After a moment of silence, senators unani-
mously passed a resolution during Tuesday's
Senate meeting to honor Lamar Abel, a former
UF football player who died over the week-
end.
After the tribute to Abel, senators debated
over and approved Student Body President
Ashton Charles' nominations for the five jus-
tices of the UF Supreme Court.
"They are all really qualified individuals,"
said Vice President Marcus Dixon. "They have
proven to be leaders in Student Government
and around campus."
Members of the Student Alliance party ques-


"They are all really qualified indi-
viduals. They have proven to be

Student Body vice president

tioned the qualifications of the five nominees,
asking them if they had read any UF Supreme
Court cases and the UF constitution.
Chief Justice David Nigliazzo's appointment
sparked some debate when it was revealed he
had not read the full text of the constitution.
Student Alliance Senate leader Jonathan Os-
sip said his party wanted to be sure the jus-
tices were qualified before approving them.


UF rugby to be on NBC


By ANDREW PANTAZI
Alligator Writer
It's fast. It's exciting. It's violent.
UF's rugby team is going to Colum-
bus, Ohio, on June 2 to participate in
the first USA Sevens' Rugby Collegiate
Championship Invitational.
Rugby sevens, a rugby style debut-
ing in the 2016 Summer Olympics,
mixes football and soccer, said Noah
Walker, UF' rugby club's president.
"It's got a lot of potential to catch
on with the explosion of violent sports
like MMA and football with its deep-


seated fanbase already," Walker said.
"People like to watch people hit each
other, outrun each other, so I think it's
got a great chance of really gaining
hold at the national level."
The tournament,
On which will take place
Campus from June 4 to 6, will be
broadcast on NBC, NBC
Universal Sports and Hulu. The event
is also expected to be a prime oppor-
tunity to scout talent for the national
rugby sevens team, Walker said.

Restaurant cuts hours, live music due to complaint


Michelle Reeves, one of the owners of the Fat Tuscan Cafe, stands outside the building after closing
Wednesday afternoon. Zoning regulations have forced the cafe to close at 4 p.m.


By ALEX ORLANDO
Alligator Writer

Forced to close its doors after
4 p.m. now, the Fat Tuscan Caf6
may have to close forever if its
zoning code doesn't change.
The Italian-American restau-
rant on 725 NE First St., which
regularly features live guitar mu-
sic, had its last evening perfor-
mance Friday. Until further no-
tice, it will be closed on Sundays
and after 4 p.m. every other day
due to a noise complaint from a
resident.
The original zoning code did
not allow the caf6 to be open af-
ter 4 p.m. Monday through Satur-
day or be open on Sundays. But
around December 2009, owners
Michelle Reeves and Marianne
Toppino started to keep the caf6
open Thursdays, Fridays and Sat-
urdays until around 8:30 p.m.
"We needed to bring in some
more income with the economy
the way it is," Reeves said. "[The
longer hours have] been carrying
us through the recession."
Gainesville Code Enforcement
officer Todd Martin issued a noise
complaint citation after a call from
a nearby resident May 15 during a


night of acoustic music. The caf6
had until May 21 to comply with
its zoning code.
Neither the resident who
complained nor Martin could be
reached for comment.
"Now, we have to go to the
City Commission and ask them to
let us do what we're already do-
ing," Reeves said.
Collin McLeod, 24, of 738 NE
Second St., shares a fence line
with the Fat Tuscan.
Local He said the restau-
News rant's noise has nev-
er bothered him.
"Honestly, Eighth Avenue is
more annoying with ambulances
and cop cars than the Fat Tus-
can," he said.
Elijah George, 27, of 114 NE
Seventh Ave., who owns a lot
adjacent to the caf6, said he was
unaware the Fat Tuscan had live
music on weekends but said noise
from Sky Bar on University Av-
enue bothers him.
"I know a lot of people com-
plain about that in the neighbor-
hood," George said. "But they
never shut that down."
The caf6 may not last through
the summer if it is not able to hold
evening hours, Reeves said.

Bus customer demands refund for missed flight


By ANDREW PANTAZI
Alligator Writer


He was trying to make a flight
out of Ft. Lauderdale to Colombia.
The bus service offered a "first class
coach" trip from Gainesville to Mi-
ami for $20. He took the trip; he
won't ever do that again.
Alberto Arcieri, a 65-year-old
retired Gainesville resident, bought
a GatorBus ticket to Miami for May
14. He had also bought a ticket from
the Aires airline.
The bus was supposed to arrive
in Miami at 8:30 p.m. It didn't get
there until 1:30 a.m., Arcieri said.



We by gld cah ceck
BEST JWELRY& LOA

"Everything from that trip was
awful," Arcieri said. "We arrived
there at 1:30 in the morning. I had
to be at the airport by 2 in the after-
noon, but I felt so sick that I had to
cancel."
The bus company responded to
his complaints of breakdowns and
lack of air conditioning with an e-
mail saying that mechanical break-
downs are common in the transpor-
tation business.
The company gave Arcieri a re-
fund for the $20 he spent, but he
wanted to be paid back for missing
his flight.
Previously, Arcieri's wife, Marla,


"Everything from that trip

there at 1:30 in the morn-
ing. I had to be at the air-
port by 2 in the afternoon,
but I felt so sick that I had

Alberto Arcieri
retired Gainesville resident

and his daughter, Lina, had taken
GatorBus to Miami before taking a
flight to Colombia. When they re-


turned to Miami, they found an e-
mail sent two days before the bus
was supposed to take them home to
Gainesville. The e-mail explained,
"Due to high demand for private
bus charters GatorBus will not be
providing service for the month of
April."
Buses carrying more than nine
passengers must register with the
Department of Transportation, a
department official said. Although
the GatorBus website lists its name
as GatorBus, LLC, no transporta-
tion services were listed as Gator-
Bus in the DOT's Federal Motor
Carrier Safety Administration data-


base. The GatorBus website said it
is a subsidiary of the Empire Coach
Lines, which did have a listing in
the department's safety database.
Empire Coach Lines, of Orlando,
operates 12 buses.
Nine have been inspected with
four total violations in the past two
years.
The violations ranged from inop-
erative brake systems to a cracked
bus frame.
The DOT database recommend-
ed the bus service be inspected.
GatorBus representatives did
not respond to repeated requests
for comment.

Hair clippings to be sent to Gulf
By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER chair where they will ask people to make a phone c
Alligator Contributing Writer to President Obama.


The infamous Deepwater Horizon oil spill is send-
ing an estimated 5,000 barrels of oil into the Gulf of
Mexico every day.
Gators for a Sustainable Campus is giving UF stu-
dents the opportunity to help do something about it.
Today at 11 a.m., the group will be giving students
free haircuts on the Plaza of the Americas as a part of
a hair collection to aid oil spill containment efforts on
the coast of Florida.
"We wanted to be a part of this effort at UF to make
sure that if oil reaches our shores, we are prepared,"
said Chris Cano, a former member of the group who
will be participating in the event.
The hair that is cut will be collected and placed
into nylon oil-containment booms, which are long,
snake-like stockings stuffed with absorbent material
that may be placed along the shorelines of the Gulf
of Mexico.
Though it may seem unconventional, human hair
is a good material for the booms because it absorbs oil
particles.
The group won't just be collecting hair, however. It
is also hoping that donating hair will lead students to
become more active in the relief effort and the sustain-
ability cause.
The group will place a table next to the barber shop


all


Heading the relief effort is Gators for a Sustainable
Campus member Melanie Richards, who got the idea
for hair collection from students at Florida Interna-
tional University in Miami.
"We wanted to be a part of this effort at
UF to make sure that if oil reaches our
shores, we are prepared."
Chris Cano
former member of Gators for a Sustainable Campus

Richards also has been working to get local hair
salons involved. Avante Garde, Downtown Barber
Shop and Salon at 716 have committed to donate their
customers' hair, according to the release.
"This is an easy way for students to get involved
in the oil relief effort," she said. "The government and
BP are not doing enough to fix this situation, so we are
taking things into our own hands. If you care, donate
hair."
Though collection of hair has been given a new-
found prominence due to the catastrophic Gulf spill,
the idea is not exactly new.
Hair For Oil Spills was a plan originally devised
nearly a decade ago by California-based nonprofit or-
ganization Matter of Trust.

Study shows babies


learn while sleeping
By TARA WIND
Alligator Contributing Writer

Babies can soak up knowledge like sponges even when they
dream.
Newborns were found to display a basic form of learning dur-
ing sleep, according to a Columbia University study, which was
published May 17 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of
Sciences and is the first to show learning during sleep.
Dana Byrd, a UF psychology researcher and co-author of the
study, and other researchers studied 1- to 2-day-old babies in New
York City to find out how they learn so much
U F from their surroundings while sleeping up to 18
Research hours per day.
Byrd said the researchers played a tone, fol-
lowed by a gentle air puff to the babies' eyelids. After about 20
minutes, 24 of the 26 babies squinted when they heard the noise
alone, without having the puff of air.
It's possible this research method could help detect children at
risk for autism, dyslexia and cerebral palsy, which affects motor
control.
"Your baby can and will be learning during sleep," Byrd said.

Forget Nothing

Remember the purpose

of Memorial Day
The weather is going to be great, but you may want to
think twice before cracking open a beer and having a
pool party this weekend.
Monday is Memorial Day, and we encourage everybody
to take the time to honor the people who died for our coun-
try, not the least among them Lance Cpl. Philip Paul Clark,
an Alachua County native and 2008 Buchholz High School
graduate who died on May 18 while serving in Afghani-
stan.
Clark's body is going to be escorted into town today by
the Alachua County Sheriff's Office, and his funeral service
will be held at Queen of Peace Catholic Community on Fri-
day at 9:30 a.m.
While Clark's sacrifice is especially meaningful, mil-
lions of Americans have died fighting for their country
since they day it was founded. It might be a good time to
remember that by visiting memorial displays at Kanapaha
Park on Tower Road or the Veterans for Peace's tombstones
on Northwest Eighth Avenue and 34th Street. It might not
go down as your happiest Sunday afternoon, but our fallen
soldiers deserve to be remembered.
This is not the time to talk about whether we should be
in the two wars we are fighting. It is not the time to curse
politicians, and it certainly is not the time to protest. There
are another 364 days in the year for that. It is the time to
think about Philip Paul Clark and the other soldiers who
gave up their lives so we could live ours.
Come Monday we should all take a break from our opin-
ions and remember that people have died fighting for us
not because they had to but because they chose to.


Life Prerequisites


Starting next school
year, incoming high
school freshmen in
Florida will have to pass
both Algebra 1 and Geom-
etry in order to earn their
diplomas.
We could not be happier
about the change. It is un-
likely that anyone got into
college without passing
these classes, so the cur-
riculum change only really
affects the least common
denominator in Florida's
schools, and raising the bar
can only help them.
Not everyone plans
on going to college after
graduation, and requiring
kids to know how to use
a protractor probably will
not make that big of an im-
pact on how many choose
to pursue higher education,
but it will make their lives a


little bit easier.
Mastering even the most
basic math concepts can take
people a lot farther in life.
Without an understanding
of math, everything from
building a bookshelf to
balancing a checkbook can
seem out of reach.
Knowing algebra will
not change your mechanic
into an engineer, and learn-
ing geometry probably can
not make your drywall guy
an architect, but it will make
them better at their jobs.
It might turn out that
the only benefit of the
new standard is that your
sandwich artist at Subway
knows how many degrees
are in a cheese triangle, but
that would not be the worst
thing in the world.
The more education, the
better.

Letters to the Editor
Resident disagrees with State Attorney's
decision regarding student shooting.
Gainesville residents who walk with canes
are advised not to lift them above their waist
in the presence of law officers. Doing so may
result in you being legally shot, or so argues Bill
Cervone in his statement regarding Kofi Adu-
Brempong.
His inability to see Keith Smith's actions as
brutal and excessively violent are indicative of
his ineptitude as a State Attorney. I urge all in
the community to not 'put [this] issue to rest,'
but to seek alternatives to Bill Cervone's illogi-
cal conclusions about the matter. Join the Jus-
tice for Kofi Adu-Brempong Facebook group to
find out about ways you can help curb police
brutality, bring justice to a victim, and change
the culture of the Eighth Judicial Circuit.
Goals include an Independent Police Review
Board, the improvement of mental health and
crisis services, and a Grand Jury investigation
of the incident.

Student Health Care Center offers services
for sexual health.
After seeing the column 'Sexual health care
on the cheap' in the May 13th edition of the Al-
ligator, we'd like to remind readers that the UF
Student Health Care Center also offers a full
range of sexual health care services available to
students.
UF students pay a health fee in their tuition
that helps supports the SHCC. Visits to a prima-
ry care provider, and most of the practitioners
in the women's clinic, do not require additional
payment. Patients won't have to endure a long
wait if they call first (352-392-1161) to make an
appointment. Often, students can get an ap-
pointment the same day they call!
SHCC provides testing for sexually trans-
mitted infections and results are always confi-
dential - not even parents can see the results,
unless patients give written permission.
For the comfort of our patients, all staff at
our women's clinic are female. Students can get
prescriptions for birth control or other medica-
tions filled at our pharmacy on-site. Some of
these medications are offered at discount prices
for students. Tests and medications do require
payment, but the SHCC tries to keep prices at
or below community rates.
Another big bonus of using the Student
Health Care Center is that students are as-
signed to a team of health care providers and
will see these same doctors and nurses through-
out their time at UF. Wouldn't you like to know
the person helping you manage your health,


instead of wondering who you're going to see
and whether he or she will understand your in-
dividual needs? And SHCC is located right on
campus - our main location is on Fletcher Drive
near the Hub and football stadium. You can fit
an appointment in between classes.

Friends of Lamar Abel share memories.
Dear Lamar,
Words cannot describe my feelings
for you, but words are all I seem to have.
Just because I cannot see and speak to you
physically, you are more around me than ever
before.
"Everybody Ain't Abel." You had your
own phrase that people actually used. Who
does that?!? I used to call myself the CEO of
Lamar Enterprises. You would correct me and
say that title belonged to you and I could be
an assistant. Well, I must say you did well for
yourself and received excellent reviews:
"A good friend is someone who still has
your back in a bad situation knowing that you
were wrong. He always defended his friends
even though he knew of their flaws like drink-
ing and driving, but he always made sure ev-
eryone made it safe after a road trip." -Elwor-
thy Williams, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
"His time was cut short because his job was
well done on earth. I'm thankful I got a chance
to know him." - Carlos Dunlap, Cincinnati
Bengals Defensive End
"Growing up with Lamar was like watching
a future star." - Adriana Crawford, Cousin
"He was a man of his word." - Corey Hen-
derson, UF football player
"He had a vibe where you can tell him any-
thing." - Chantel Johnson, UF junior
"In one word, I would describe him as
humble." - Woudlin Jean-Baptiste, UF engi-
neering major
"Even if he was mad, he used his tone in-
stead of physical force because he knew he
could do bodily harm." - Earv Johnson, Ome-
ga Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
"He was very detail oriented. He always
wanted to do his best in every organization,
because it would reflect on him." - Dr. Mi-
chael Bowie, College of Education director of
recruitment, retention and multicultural af-
fairs.
Wow! Who would have guessed that fun-
ny saying created freshman year would be so
true. Everybody really ain't Abel.
We love you. Get some rest, friend.

Column

Columnist gets hands


on BP's leaked memo


As a corporation, British Pe-
troleum is deeply saddened
by the recent leaks in our in-
terwebs tube that have pumped out
an ever-increasing number of highly
sensitive and damaging internal docu-
ments into the vital Gulf of Public
Opinion. We have prepared the fol-
lowing memo as a "top kill procedure"
on the destructive flow of information
by piping loads of crap into real leaks
of BP's corporate philosophy:
BP has been heartened by the way
our CEO, Tony Hayward, was able
to use his charming British accent to
make even the most odious proclama-
tions and reversals seem somewhat
palatable to a generation of Americans
who will be irreparably harmed by our
recent public relations disaster in the
Gulf of Mexico. Keeping in line with
this logic, BP is pleased to announce
that our new spokesperson will be the
Geico gecko.
Hiring the gecko, and thereby
gleaning at least some measure of his
genteel persona, will also head off any
charges that BP somehow harbors little
concern for the welfare of animals. In
fact, this year British Petroleum has al-
ready committed more money toward
helping animals dying from contact
with oil and chemical dispersants than
any other corporation or government
in the world.
Why? Because we care.
BP may care more for these help-
less and gentle creatures than the
boot-wearing naysayers in the Ameri-
can political system. President Obama
and the Democrats are facing a tough
campaign this fall for control of Con-
gress and are likely to back away from
publicly supporting intensely com-
munal animals like waterfowl, due to
rising public resentment for the word
"socialist."
Sea turtles skew older and conser-
vative, with their rock-solid breed-


S ing schedules,
and thus may
not be a key
Obama con-
stituency go-
ing forward.
Tommy Maple While the wel-
letters@alligator org fare of fish and
fisherman is
of the utmost
concern to BP, the cutthroat life of a
fish mirrors our own corporate cul-
ture and the wider capitalist system
enough that our company feels it nec-
essary to ask a simple question of the
American people.
What is the most important natural
resource in the world?
While some may argue passion-
ately that the health of the natural eco-
systems and nature itself is of utmost
concern and others may advocate
for various non-renewable resources
like oil, British Petroleum posits that
the most vital natural resource in the
world is the healthy corporation vig-
orously swimming in an unfettered
ocean of free market capitalism.
The recent exemplary record our
company has had in job creation in the
besieged Gulf region should be cel-
ebrated rather than vilified, especially
as we still have access to the valuable
oil well itself. The true test of our new
gecko spokesman will be his ability to
use a somber tone and elicit sympathy
when we give American taxpayers the
bill for removing all the dead animals
from our oil.
Like the majestic dolphin, a corpo-
ration is a bellwether species that sig-
nals the overall health and vitality of a
system. While the outright destruction
of the coastline of much of America is
certainly regrettable, we cannot sit idly
by and let a huge global corporation
like BP simply die in the muck like so
many millions of living creatures.

Facial hair fad hits Gainesville's guys


By KATHERINE BEIN
alligator writer


Hey man, what are you wear-
ing on your face this season?
If you've been keeping up with facial hair
fashion trends, you know we've been
chin-deep in lumberjack scruffle. But
this season, the ironic beard is usurped
by the even-more ironic mustache.
I first discovered the mustache
thing when I was in Chicago last Au-
gust. Every time I saw a bike ride
by, I had handlebar double-vision.
I thought at first it was just a regional
variant, but now I know the mustaches
have trickled down to the Dirty South.
Whether it's thin like a pencil, curved
like Dali's or creepy like a sex offender's,
Gainesville's fashion-forward faces are
increasingly graced with sweet 'staches.
Take for instance Raul Prado, 23, who
was recently a model during Gainesville
Fashion Week.
Prado said he'd always stayed baby-
smooth until fashion week officials di-
rected him to stop. When they gave him
raving responses over his new "epic mus-
tache," he decided he would keep it.
"Two of my coworkers have started
growingthem now," Prado said, recogniz-


ing his trend-setter position.
Matt Everhart, 24, has worn his mus-
tache for eight months and loves it, but
admits his little friend's popularity is
sometimes overshadowing.
"There's a man behind the mus-
tache," he said. "I've started telling peo-
ple (on the street), 'Listen, my eyes are
up here.'"
Although some men might feel bur-
dened by the attention a mustache com-
mands, others, like Alex Orlando, are
thrilled to show it off.

"There's a man behind thae
mustaehe. I've started telling
people (on the street), 'Listen, my
eyes are up here."'
MATT EVERHART
mustache wearer


"I can't live without this thing," Or-
lando said. It's my best friend." He un-
derstands the power a 'stache can yield.
After all, his girlfriend, Erin Rauch, places
it high on her list of endearing qualities.
"It's fun to kiss. It tickles," Rauch
said. "It's not a burden. It's a nice little
addition. I mean, if he gets rid of it we're


breaking up."
Of course, every fashion movement
has its critics at first, like 22-year-old
Ashley Harvin.
"I think they make guys look like '70s
porn stars," she said. "It's gross."
It's negativity like this that made Joel
Kienitz, also known around town as DJ
JeRK, shave his experimental lip-acces-
sory after only two weeks.
"A lot of people liked it, but I was get-
ting a lot of weird looks from girls," Kien-
itz said. "I thought it was awesome, but
it was too tough for me on the fashion
frontlines."
Although haters are going to hate no
matter what, the reality is that there's no
stopping a trend in motion.
Even Google knows the whisker-wind
is changing direction. Carefully study-
ing Google trends' term-tracking tool, a
steady increase in searches for "mus-
taches" started mid-2009 and continues
strong into this summer.
So, whether you love them or hate
them, prepare yourselves for the mus-
tache madness that is heading our way.
"I think they're an inspiring tradition,
the symbol of a civilized and progressive
man," said mustache enthusiast Loic
Robertson. "If I could grow one, I would."


Gardening


in home is


easy, cheap
By ERIN RAUCH
avenue writer

Want to learn how to grow weeds? Have
you been itchingto use your green thumb this
summer? Then I'm here to tell you that it's
not only easy, it's fun and affordable.
After a lengthy sojourn to a couple local
garden centers, I came to the blistering real-
ization, thanks to a Master Gardener at the
UF/IFAS Alachua County Extension Office,
that this particular type of sowing endeavor is
not as difficult as one would imagine.
* Step 1: Finding a place for your garden
All of the shrubbery mentioned herein can
be conveniently planted in an affordable gar-
dening container.
The sun is (obviously) a primary fac-
tor when gardening, so you need to decide
where to plant first. If you have a south-facing
balcony, you will most likely have the best ex-
posure.
For those of you who are living in dorms,
you may only have access to a window. A
house plant is probably your best option.
* Step 2: Choosing the right soil type
Most plants prefer neutral to slightly acid-
ic soil that is well drained. Professional soil
mixes found at garden centers should work
fine.
* Step 3: Picking which plants you want
to grow
Don't get complicated. Ask a gardener
what works best. Some varieties:
Annuals completetheir life cycle in oneyear
and are generally used for color. Impatiens,
petunias and pansies are a few examples.
Perennials flower every year and are pri-
marily used to add color to a space.
Butterfly plants, you guessed it, attract but-
terflies. Milkweed, pentas and salvias are
only a few of the varieties you can plant. If
you're looking to witness the entire circle of
life, the passion vine attracts caterpillars.
Edible plants include herbs such as ba-
sil, parsley and cilantro. Herbs are easy
to grow and can be added to any meal
- even your Ramen noodles. Another va-
riety of edible plants are vegetables such
as tomatoes, eggplant and peppers.
If you're lazy, house plants are the way to go.
They're easy to grow and maintain.
* Step 4: Buying your plant supplies
Talk to some experts. Garden Gate Nurs-
ery, located off of Northwest 43rd Street and
Harmony Gardens, located off of Northwest
13th Street, are among the garden centers
in Gainesville.
If you have extra cash and are feeling a
little more adventurous, there's a hydropon-
ics store in town called the Gardener's Edge,
located off of Northwest Eighth Avenue.
* More information and advice
The Master Gardeners at UF/IFAS Alach-
ua County Extension Office are always willing
to share plant knowledge.

stay indoors, why not try your hand
at some new hobbies? How about
making your own alcohol? Part
chemistry, part cooking, part art
and part drinking, home brewing is a
great way to pass those extra hours
of summer daylight.
My passion for brewing started
with winemaking last summer.
Since then, carrots, strawberries,
apples, blueberries and honey are
only some of the ingredients to fall
prey to my hobby. Regrettably, wine
must age before drinking it, and al-
though I have several dozen bottles
of homemade booze in my kitchen
cabinet, I'm still playing the waiting
game. Bowing to my impatience, I
turned to beer, which can be ready
to drink in as little as a month.

ceptions you may have: Brewing is

later, you call your friends and drink
the beer. If you can do that, you can
brew.
The first step in making delicious
homemade alcohol is buying a brew
kit. Although it's possible to brew us-
ing no specialized equipment, you
should learn to rely on skill, tools
and measurement rather than luck.
Hoggetowne Ale Works is Gaines-
ville's only brewing supply store,
and it has everything you need to
get started. Brewing kits start at just
$69, a very student-friendly price.
And if you take care of it, the equip-
ment will last forever. Case in point:
I use my dad's kit he purchased
more than 30 years ago.
Once you have your kit, the ingre-
dients to make a batch of beer - five
gallons - will cost between $25 and
$50. It sounds like a lot, but beyond
your start-up costs that's well under


$


For your first recipe you'll use
malt extract and fermentable sug-
ars already removed from the grain.
Think of it as buying a can of corn
instead of choppingthe kernels off a
cob - it saves a lot of time and gets
you consistent results.
Once you're comfortable with the
general process and familiar with
the nuances of your equipment, you
can integrate actual grains and oth-
er ingredients into your recipes. This
makes brewing more difficult but al-
lows for unlimited creativity and cus-
tomization.
Along with brewing kits, Hog-
getowne Ale Works offers hops,
grains, recipes, specialty ingredi-
ents, winemaking supplies and,
most importantly, expert advice. Ev-

Droney Woods Sound Tour brings nature, music together


T. Rorstrom /Alligator
Natalja Mari manipulates keyboard and pedals
at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens.


* EVENT WAS HELD IN KANAPAHA
BOTANICAL GARDENS.

By ALEX ORLANDO
avenue writer

Electric hums echoed down gravel paths,
through trees and over creeks as a crowd
meandered its way through the woods of
southwest Gainesville on a steamy Saturday
afternoon.
They congregated under bamboo shoots
and sat among monkey grass to watch An-
drew Chadwick as he hooked up his typewrit-
er to a contact microphone and began typ-
ing, the percussive sounds of the punching
keys amplified by a nearby boom box.
In his right hand was a children's accor-
dion, which he used to complement the type-
writer's chatter, both sounds being pumped
through the Kanapaha Botanical Gardens
by his speaker in a scene that recalled Ken
Kesey and the Merry Pranksters.
Chadwick was the first of about 10 per-
formers stationed throughout the gardens
as part of the Droney Woods Sound Tour, an
audio tour of the gardens featuring synth pop


and experimental electronic musicians from
around Gainesville.
"I love nature and doingelectronic music,"
said Christopher Miller, 41, who organized
the tour. "There is a juxtaposition of sorts.
It's two things that shouldn't be together."
Miller said the tour was the first of its kind
in Gainesville and was modeled after a simi-
lar tour on the banks of the Santa Fe River
in Worthington Springs, organized by Loren
Knack.
Miller was able to organize the tour with
the help of his uncle, Don Goodman, the
founder and director of Kanapaha Botanical
Gardens. As he wiped sweat from his fore-
head after the tour, he said he planned to
do another in the fall when the weather gets
cooler.
Knack, who performed under the name
"Ironing" on Saturday, set up five tape re-
corders in a ring around the 52 attendees
who sat in the filtered sunlight under an oak
tree. Each recorder played a different sound:
static, accordion, chirping frogs or clicking
sounds. Some sat admiring the scenery; oth-
ers sat with their eyes closed.
"I think that [the sounds] the musicians


bring are not of nature, but they complement
it," he said. "It kind of helps people focus on
what's around them."
Paul Pino, a 21-year-old art student at
UF, played a series of notes in the pitch of B
flat from his MacBook for his performance. A
pitch, he said, that is present in nature.
"Alligators go crazy around B flat," he said,
also noting scientific studies that have found
pitches of B flat resonating from black holes.
Pino timed his song to the beat of a bam-
boo fountain in the garden, which was de-
signed to scare away deer with a loud thump
every 30 seconds when it had filled with wa-
ter. He said he chose to perform in the area
next to the fountain because he wanted his
environment to be a part of his music.
"It was definitely a way of interacting with
your environment," he said. "No one could
overpower the sound of the environment."
Other musicians played their music
through Honeytone portable amplifiers, which
were just loud enough to break through the
midday buzzing of cicadas. Chadwick, who
performed with his typewriter, said he pre-
ferred playing outdoors to indoor venues.
"It's better than bar chatter," he said.

Festival tips from Fest organizer and
No Idea publicist Tony Weinbender
Festival veteran Tony Weinbender, 34, has
been going to music festivals for almost 20 years
and running them for about 15, so the Avenue
asked him for advice on how to do your summer
music experience right.
If you're going to plan around parties, Wein-
bender says the first night and the last night "ev-
erybody goes big."
When it comes to food, Weinbender suggests
raw almonds as a high-energy, high-protein snack.
But make sure notto get the roasted or salted kind
because that will just make you dehydrated.
It's also a good idea to avoid eating anything
scary. When stuck with a portable toilet, "you
don't want to be having to blow up a bathroom,"
he said.
And though you may love them, don't bring
your dogs or other animals. "They don't like music.
They're just bummed out," Weinbender said.
Then it just comes down to goo d common
sense. And the Internet. Look for stuff you're go-
ing to enjoy, and plan ahead to avoid any major
surprises.


Vinyl records see resurgence, boost in retail sales


By ALI RIECH
avenue writer


While a penchant for minimalism and
convenient digital technology drives the
majority of music sales (or lack thereof), a
growing number of music fans are returning
to a bulkier but more interactive format -
the vinyl record.
Lily Darnell became interested in collect-
ing records after finding a cardboard box
stuffed with '70s-era folk-rock in her par-
ents' garage.
"I feel like MP3s made me lose out on
any sort of physical interaction with the mu-
sic I was listening to. I decided to get into
records so I could get back to really hearing
music," Darnell said.
Darnell is not alone, either.
According to the Recording Industry As-
sociation of America, records are the only
physical music format to experience any
growth in sales. From 2007 to 2008, vinyl
LP and EP sales rose by 124 percent - a
figure which, though significant, may be
modest since it doesn't account for used or
independent record sales. Digital sales rose
by only 30 percent.
The boom in record sales is showing lo-
cally as well. Hear Again Music & Movies
owner Andrew Schaer saw a growth in re-
cord sales over the past four months.
Schaer formerly expected about equal
sales in movies and music, but thanks to
the vinyl-revival, records now outsell both


CDs and DVDs.
"People have been growing up listening
to mp3s for the past 10 or 15 years - when
they hear the uncompressed [vinyl] format
it's an eye-opener. People feel ripped off by
the compressed version of their favorite al-
bums," Schaer said.
Vinyl collectors tend to describe the
sound of records as opposed to digital for-


mats as richer, warmer and fuller. Analog
records produce a wider range of frequen-
cies that CDs and mp3s cannot reproduce.
Digital-music proponents tend to dismiss
this claim by saying the frequencies are
inaudible. However, some suggest that the
frequencies are felt rather than heard.
"Records have a more omni-dimensional
sound that really fills the room a lot better.


Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff
A display of records for sale behind the counter at Hear Again Music & Movies, 201 SE sec-
ond Ave. The store sells a wide variety of vinyl LP's, a format which regularly outsell CD's.


LPs sound warmer, and you are more likely
to notice subtle sounds and instruments,"
Schaer said.
Another appealing aspect of the vinyl
sound is referred to as surface noise - the
hum of the needle alongthe record grooves
and the occasional crackling sound un-
heard-of in the comparatively sterile digital
format.
"It's sort of a warm, fuzzy sound. I love
it," Darnell said.
Because turntables are notoriously dif-
ficult to operate while driving, digital music
remains popular due, at least in part, to its
portability. Labels like Sub Pop now include
digital download with most vinyl record
sales.
iTunes tried to join the analog-trend
by promoting "iTunes LPs," which bundle
artwork, lyrics and videos with full album
downloads instead of its typical single mp3
downloads. This particular digital LP pro-
motion failed to generate any noteworthy
trend, however.
The introduction of mp3 technology
spelled the end of the CD around 2001. De-
clining CD sales pushed a recording indus-
try response to thwart a beast that proved
unstoppable - online music sharing.
"What's also great about vinyl is that
people are finally contributing to the art-
ists they love again and supporting local
stores," Schaer said.
"If you want to hear an album the way it's
meant to be heard, listen to it on vinyl."

UF's Johnson


falters in 10-6


loss to LSU
* UF WILL FACE NO. 15 ARKANSAS IN
AN ELIMINATION GAME TODAY.

By TYLER JETT
Alligator Writer
tjett@alligator org

HOOVER, Ala. - The pie has soured for Brian
Johnson.
About three weeks after receiving the tradi-
tional cream-filled dessert to the face in celebration
of a dominating effort against LSU (37-20), the UF
pitcher lasted just 3.2 horrific innings in Wednes-
day's rematch.
Johnson, who hit a grand slam and allowed two
earned runs in 6.1 frames on May 2, was pulled
after surrendering seven runs on nine hits as No.
4 Florida (40-14) fell to LSU 10-6 in the opening
round of the SEC Tournament in Regions Park Sta-
dium.
UF will play an elimination game against No. 15
Arkansas (40-17) today 30 minutes after the match-
up between Auburn and South Carolina.
"(The Tigers) swung the bat real well," Johnson
said. "They were aggressive. I just fell behind a
little bit and didn't have my stuff."
Johnson's outing went south in the second when
LSU designated hitter Matt Gaudet hit a lead-off
homer. The next five LSU batters reached base, in-
cluding an RBI single by No. 9 hitter Mason Katz.
Johnson struggled with his command, walking
three in the inning, but UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan

Title bid falls short


By ANDREW OLSON
Alligator Writer
In the third set of the last singles
match to decide the championship,
Marrit Boonstra was one game away
from an ideal ending to her college
career.
She was up 5-4 over Mallory Bur-
dette, and needed only one more
game to make her team the new na-
tional champions.
The third set ended 7-5, with
Boonstra on the losing end.
"My heart just aches for Marrit
(Boonstra)," UF coach Roland Thom-
qvist said. "She has given this pro-


gram everything she has. It's just not
fair for it to come down to a result
like this for her."
The Cardinal won five of six first
sets, putting the pres-
sure on Florida to force
at least two matches
into a third set.
Men's Anastasia Revzina
fell short on the Gators'
Ten n IS first attempt to extend
the match. She lost 6-2,

SOFTBALL

Gators prepared for ASU


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer

When the Gators softball team takes the
field Saturday it will be playing not only for
itself, but also for the future of its program
and the reputation of the Southeastern Con-
ference.
In this weekend's NCAA Super Regional
matchup between No. 4 Florida (46-8) and
No. 13 Arizona State (44-15), which begins
Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in Gainesville, a trip
to the Women's College World Series, con-
ference bragging rights and a legacy of sus-
tained greatness will all be on the line.
But even with all that to be played for,
UF coach Tim Walton is energized about
achieving a different goal.
"I'm excited about where we're able to go


and I know everybody in the media thinks
we're bound for the World Series and we're
probably looking to win a national champi-
onship, but we're not," Walton said. "We're
just looking to have fun and go out and take
care of business the next
game. There's no pressure
on us, we don't feel the
same expectations that ev-
erybody else does. We're
just excited to win."
Although Walton and
Walton the team are focused on
having fun and taking
things one game at a time, they still realize
how important this weekend and the last
were to the Florida softball program.

SEC enforces pitch clock


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Staff Writer
achiang@allgator org

HOOVER, Ala. - The Gators faced a
brand new opponent Wednesday - the
clock.
No. 4 Florida (40-14) saw its first-round
opponent LSU (37-20) less than a month
ago, but it had never been exposed to the
new pitch clock that is being experimented
with in this week's Southeastern Confer-
ence Tournament.
It has been implemented in an attempt
to speed things up, and it did.
In last year's conference tourney, games
lasted an average of 3 hours and 20 min-
utes. Two of the first three contests in this
season's tournament finished in less than 2
hours and 40 minutes.
The Gators' game was the longest of the
first three at 3 hours and 17 minutes due
in part to the combined 30 hits the teams
racked up.
The new clock was not expected to im-
pact the Gators, who preach a quick and
consistent rhythm on the mound.
"It didn't affect me at all," UF starting
pitcher Brian Johnson said. "I work at a fast
pace anyway."
However, the freshman hurler struggled
as he allowed nine hits in just 3.2 innings
while giving up seven runs.
The new rules that come along with


the clock include a 20-second timer for the
pitcher. When the bases are empty, hurlers
have 20 seconds to deliver each pitch. The
batter is rewarded with an added ball to
the count if the pitcher fails to throw before
the clock expires.
UF's game went without an incident as
each pitcher worked efficiently.
In order to help give the players a better
idea of the allotted time, they have added
a digitalized clock in right-center field that
counts down the seconds.
A fourth umpire that is not on the field
controls the new timer.
Another strategy the SEC is using to
make things go by faster is
, shortening the gap in be-
tween frames.
There will be just 108
Baseball seconds from when the last
out is made and the first
pitch of each half inning is
thrown.
Despite all of the added regulations to
control the pace of the game, coach Kevin
O'Sullivan did not want to burden his play-
ers with adjustments.
"We kept it simple," O'Sullivan said.
"If the catcher makes the last out, we make
sure we have the back up (catcher) in there
(to catch warm-up pitches)."
If these new policies go over smoothly
this week, they could become part of con-
ference play in the regular season too.

Gators' late-inning rally falls short

BASEBALL, from page 21

kept Johnson in until the fourth inning. The
southpaw was finally pulled after giving up
a double and single to sophomore Tyler Ha-
nover and first baseman Blake Dean, who both
scored later in the inning.
Unlike Johnson, LSU ace Anthony Ranaudo
redeemed a nightmare outing against Florida
on April 30, when the Gators chased the right
hander after two innings. Ranaudo, a project-
ed top-10 pick in the MLB Draft before the sea-
son, recorded five strike outs while throwing a
season-high 7.2 innings on Wednesday.
"You got to tip your cap to him," UF center
fielder Matt den Dekker said. "He battled and
gave them a great chance to win."
If the Gators can take anything positive
from Wednesday's game, it is there effort in
the eighth inning. Den Dekker led off the frame
with his 12th long ball of the season. Freshman
Austin Maddox then singled and right fielder
Daniel Piggot drew a walk to force Ranaudo
out of the contest.
Both base runners scored later in the frame,
cutting LSU's lead to 9-6. But the Tigers added


an insurance run in the ninth and reliever Paul
Bertuccini closed the door on the Gators in the
ninth.
Seven Gators recorded a hit on Wednesday,
led by Den Dekker, who drove in three runs
with his homer and a fifth-inning double. And,
despite his struggles on the mound, Johnson
went 3 for 4 from the plate.
But UF was still outhit 19-11.
After clinching the regu-
lar-season title last weekend
against South Carolina, Flori-
da appeared to suffer from a
BaS ba hangover Wednesday. Mad-
Baseball dox spoiled a potential rally
in the fourth by over-running
third base, and even the shore-handed Nolan
Fontana committed his third error of the sea-
son.
"They were really flat," O'Sullivan said of
his team. "I could tell before we stretched. I un-
derstand what we accomplished in the regu-
lar season, but it's a separate season. We can't
just turn it on and turn it off. We talked about
that. We can't just go through the motions this
weekend then next weekend go ahead and
turn it on full speed."


UF looks for individual NCAA titles


TENN IS, from page 21


snapped by Lindsay Burdette in a 6-3, 6-3 loss
at the No. 2 spot.
No. 9 Lauren Embree swung the momen-
tum back in Florida'a favor with an upset
against No. 4 Hilary Barte 6-4, 6-4.
With the match tied, three Gators who lost
their first sets were all in the middle of trying
to put together come-from-behind wins.
Caroline Hitimana fell short of a comeback
at court No. 6 , but a win by Joanna Mather
meant the championship trophy came down
to No. 65 Boonstra and No. 33 Mallory Bur-
dette.
Boonstra fell short in the first set, 6-4, but
edged Burdette in the second, 7-6.
Boonstra battled to a 5-4 lead in the third,
but Burdette held service to tie the match 5-5.
After Burdette took the following game, Boon-
stra failed to force another tiebreaker, losing
the set 7-5.


Individual Championships: An impres-
sive run that included singles wins over Nos.
4, 7, 10 and 11 came to end for No. 8 Embree.
No. 35 California's Mari Andersson
knocked off the ITA National Rookie of the
Year in the three sets 6-1, 1-6, 6-2.
After amassing a 26-match winning streak,
Will made sure her losing
streak stopped at one.
The No. 8 freshman
bounced back from Tues-
day's loss with a 6-1, 6-1 win
over Washington State's
No. 61 Liudmila Vasilieva
on Wednesday.
The win advances Will to
Boonstra today's round of 32. Boon-
stra will be joining Will for the round of 32 in
the doubles portion of the NCAA Individual
Championship.
They will be joined by the No. 29 team of
Embree and Mather.


SEC and Pac-lO battle for conference supremacy in Super Regionals


SOFTBALL, from page 21

off of back-to-back WCWS appearances, but
were still facing questions about if they could
maintain that greatness in the post-Stacey
Nelson era.
Walton feels those questions have been an-
swered.
"I'm just happy about being able to set
goals and achieve regional success," Walton
said. "Moving on to Super Regionals is huge
for stability in your program.
"I think I said in the beginning of the year,
it's going to be one of the most important
years of our program because of how much
success we've had in the past and whether or
not we'd be able to transition from one pitch-
er to the other, and I think Stephanie (Brom-
bacher) answered that call."
While Florida can use this weekend to
cement itself as one of the NCAA's premier
softball programs, the SEC can use it to assert
itself as the nation's top conference.
Last season, the SEC accounted for three of
the final four teams in the WCWS, but were
still unable to come away with the league's
first national championship as Washington
pulled through to give the Pacific 10 its 21st
title.


The Huskies knocked off Florida last season
in the championship series. Washington swept
the Gators in the best-of-three series behind
dominant performances by ace Danielle Lawrie,
who gave up just one earned run in 14 innings
of work.
"I'm just happy about being able to
set goals and achieve regional suc-
cess."
Tim Walton
UF Softball coach

This year, both conferences got seven
teams into the NCAA tournament, with six
Pac-10 teams and four SEC teams advancing
to Super Regionals.
As things currently stand, the Pac-10 has
the edge over the SEC, boasting a 19-2 record
to the SEC's 15-6.
But that could very easily change this
weekend, as the conferences will collide when
Florida takes on Arizona State and Georgia
meets California.
If the Gators can advance they will move
themselves one step closer to a championship
and bring their conference one step closer to
national supremacy.


UF pitcher Stephanie Brombacher (32) has filled in the void left by former ace
Stacey Nelson, and helped the Gators remain an elite program this season.

for the outdoor season.
This weekend the Gators
track and field teams are pre-

three-day NCAA Preliminary

men's team enters the meet as

at SEC's, also enters the meet
ranked in the nation's top 10,
sitting at number six.

Year, said he was proud of
both teams at SEC's, and that
both are ready to compete and
qualify this coming weekend.
"We just got to do what
we've been doing," he said.
Unlike the previous seven
years, the 2010 campaign is the
first season for the NCAA Pre-
liminary Rounds. The NCAA
moved from the four-region
format to the two regionals,
East and West.
North Carolina A&T Uni-
versity is hosting the East Re-


gional, while the University of
Texas at Austin is hosting the
West Regional.
There are no winners this
weekend, only qualifiers.
The fields of each individu-
al event consist of 48 athletes
with the top 12 advancing to
the NCAA Outdoor Champi-
onships. The top 12 teams also
advance from the 24 teams
competing in each relay.
The Florida men enter the
preliminary rounds leading
the East Region in six differ-
ent events: Kemal Mesic in the
shot put, Calvin Smith in the
400-meter dash and the top
4x100 meter relay and 4x400
meter relay teams. Christian
Taylor, recent-
ly named SEC
Men's Field Ath-
lete of the Year,
Track is the East Re-
gional's top long
jumper and top triple jumper.
The women's team leads the
East Regional in three differ-
ent events led by SEC Female
Field Athlete of the Year Mar-
iam Kevkhishvili in the shot
put. Charlotte Browning in
the 1,500-meter run and Shara
Proctor in the long jump also
lead the region in their respec-
tive events.
After the SEC's were marred
with inclement weather and
long delays, Holloway said he
expects much of the same this
weekend during the prelimi-
nary rounds.
"It always rains," he said. "I
haven't checked it [weather],
but I always expect it to rain."

You Decide. 10 THURSDAY, MAY 27, 2010 Murals honor struggle for social equality 0 THE MURALS WERE PAINTED ON 12 COLUMNS IN THE DOWNTOWN BUS STATION. By KATHERINE BEIN Alligator Writer Twelve columns of the Rosa Parks Downtown Regional Transfer Station were dedicated Tuesday to honor prominent civil rights leaders. Over the last five weeks, the columns, located at 700 SE Third St., were painted with vivid murals that depict various landmarks in the struggle for social equality. Park's refusal to give up her bus seat, Dr. King's speeches, the March on Washington, the desegregation of schools, and the bus boycott are all represented. The final column features portraits of U.S. Presidents Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Barack Obama and Sen. Robert Kennedy. Massachusetts-based artist Alan Pearsall was commissioned by the City of Gainesville Parks, Recreation & Cultural Affairs Art in Public Places Trust Advisory Board to create the murals, which wrap around the columns. The wraparound design is meant to encourage visitors to walk around and read the accompanying narratives that explain the painted scenes, Pearsall said. "Accessible to old and young alike, the history can be gathered in a creative way by viewing, reading or both," Pearsall said in a written statement. Pearsall could not attend the dedication ceremony as he was recently involved in an automobile accident. He Thomas Plevik/ Alligator is expected to make a full recovery.

SEE MURALS, PAGE 8 STUDENT GOVERNMENT Court justices approved By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN and DANIELLA DORCELUS Alligator Writers After a moment of silence, senators unanimously passed a resolution during Tuesday's Senate meeting to honor Lamar Abel, a former UF football player who died over the weekend. After the tribute to Abel, senators debated over and approved Student Body President Ashton Charles' nominations for the five justices of the UF Supreme Court. "They are all really qualified individuals," said Vice President Marcus Dixon. "They have proven to be leaders in Student Government and around campus." Members of the Student Alliance party ques"They are all really qualified individuals. They have proven to be leaders in Student Government and around campus." Marcus Dixon Student Body vice president tioned the qualifications of the five nominees, asking them if they had read any UF Supreme Court cases and the UF constitution. Chief Justice David Nigliazzo's appointment sparked some debate when it was revealed he had not read the full text of the constitution. Student Alliance Senate leader Jonathan Ossip said his party wanted to be sure the justices were qualified before approving them. UF rugby to be on NBC By ANDREW PANTAZI Alligator Writer It's fast. It's exciting. It's violent. UF's rugby team is going to Columbus, Ohio, on June 2 to participate in the first USA Sevens' Rugby Collegiate Championship Invitational. Rugby sevens, a rugby style debuting in the 2016 Summer Olympics, mixes football and soccer, said Noah Walker, UF' rugby club's president. "It's got a lot of potential to catch on with the explosion of violent sports like MMA and football with its deepseated fanbase already," Walker said. "People like to watch people hit each other, outrun each other, so I think it's got a great chance of really gaining hold at the national level." The tournament, On which will take place Campus from June 4 to 6, will be broadcast on NBC, NBC Universal Sports and Hulu. The event is also expected to be a prime opportunity to scout talent for the national rugby sevens team, Walker said.

4, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 27, 2010 Restaurant cuts hours, live music due to complaint Michelle Reeves, one of the owners of the Fat Tuscan Caf6, stands outside the building after closing Wednesday afternoon. Zoning regulations have forced the cafe to close at 4 p.m. By ALEX ORLANDO Alligator Writer Forced to close its doors after 4 p.m. now, the Fat Tuscan Caf6 may have to close forever if its zoning code doesn't change. The Italian-American restaurant on 725 NE First St., which regularly features live guitar music, had its last evening performance Friday. Until further notice, it will be closed on Sundays and after 4 p.m. every other day due to a noise complaint from a resident. The original zoning code did not allow the caf6 to be open after 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday or be open on Sundays. But around December 2009, owners Michelle Reeves and Marianne Toppino started to keep the caf6 open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays until around 8:30 p.m. "We needed to bring in some more income with the economy the way it is," Reeves said. "[The longer hours have] been carrying us through the recession." Gainesville Code Enforcement officer Todd Martin issued a noise complaint citation after a call from a nearby resident May 15 during a night of acoustic music. The caf6 had until May 21 to comply with its zoning code. Neither the resident who complained nor Martin could be reached for comment. "Now, we have to go to the City Commission and ask them to let us do what we're already doing," Reeves said. Collin McLeod, 24, of 738 NE Second St., shares a fence line with the Fat Tuscan. Local He said the restauNews rant's noise has never bothered him. "Honestly, Eighth Avenue is more annoying with ambulances and cop cars than the Fat Tuscan," he said. Elijah George, 27, of 114 NE Seventh Ave., who owns a lot adjacent to the caf6, said he was unaware the Fat Tuscan had live music on weekends but said noise from Sky Bar on University Avenue bothers him. "I know a lot of people complain about that in the neighborhood," George said. "But they never shut that down." The caf6 may not last through the summer if it is not able to hold evening hours, Reeves said. STATE Bus customer demands refund for missed flight By ANDREW PANTAZI Alligator Writer He was trying to make a flight out of Ft. Lauderdale to Colombia. The bus service offered a "first class coach" trip from Gainesville to Miami for $20. He took the trip; he won't ever do that again. Alberto Arcieri, a 65-year-old retired Gainesville resident, bought a GatorBus ticket to Miami for May 14. He had also bought a ticket from the Aires airline. The bus was supposed to arrive in Miami at 8:30 p.m. It didn't get there until 1:30 a.m., Arcieri said.

"We arrived there at 1:30 in the morning. I had to be at the airport by 2 in the afternoon, but I felt so sick that I had to cancel." The bus company responded to his complaints of breakdowns and lack of air conditioning with an email saying that mechanical breakdowns are common in the transportation business. The company gave Arcieri a refund for the $20 he spent, but he wanted to be paid back for missing his flight. Previously, Arcieri's wife, Marla, "Everything from that trip was awful. We arrived there at 1:30 in the morning. I had to be at the airport by 2 in the afternoon, but I felt so sick that I had to cancel." Alberto Arcieri retired Gainesville resident and his daughter, Lina, had taken GatorBus to Miami before taking a flight to Colombia. When they returned to Miami, they found an email sent two days before the bus was supposed to take them home to Gainesville. The e-mail explained, "Due to high demand for private bus charters GatorBus will not be providing service for the month of April." Buses carrying more than nine passengers must register with the Department of Transportation, a department official said. Although the GatorBus website lists its name as GatorBus, LLC, no transportation services were listed as GatorBus in the DOT's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration database. The GatorBus website said it is a subsidiary of the Empire Coach Lines, which did have a listing in the department's safety database. Empire Coach Lines, of Orlando, operates 12 buses. Nine have been inspected with four total violations in the past two years. The violations ranged from inoperative brake systems to a cracked bus frame. The DOT database recommended the bus service be inspected. GatorBus representatives did not respond to repeated requests for comment. WffvuTh&au. tThfy l4

THURSDAY, MAY 27, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 5 ON CAMPUS Hair clippings to be sent to Gulf By ALEXANDER KLAUSN ER chair where they will ask people to make a phone c Alligator Contributing Writer to President Obama. The infamous Deepwater Horizon oil spill is sending an estimated 5,000 barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico every day. Gators for a Sustainable Campus is giving UF students the opportunity to help do something about it. Today at 11 a.m., the group will be giving students free haircuts on the Plaza of the Americas as a part of a hair collection to aid oil spill containment efforts on the coast of Florida. "We wanted to be a part of this effort at UF to make sure that if oil reaches our shores, we are prepared," said Chris Cano, a former member of the group who will be participating in the event. The hair that is cut will be collected and placed into nylon oil-containment booms, which are long, snake-like stockings stuffed with absorbent material that may be placed along the shorelines of the Gulf of Mexico. Though it may seem unconventional, human hair is a good material for the booms because it absorbs oil particles. The group won't just be collecting hair, however. It is also hoping that donating hair will lead students to become more active in the relief effort and the sustainability cause. The group will place a table next to the barber shop all Heading the relief effort is Gators for a Sustainable Campus member Melanie Richards, who got the idea for hair collection from students at Florida International University in Miami. "We wanted to be a part of this effort at UF to make sure that if oil reaches our shores, we are prepared." Chris Cano former member of Gators for a Sustainable Campus Richards also has been working to get local hair salons involved. Avante Garde, Downtown Barber Shop and Salon at 716 have committed to donate their customers' hair, according to the release. "This is an easy way for students to get involved in the oil relief effort," she said. "The government and BP are not doing enough to fix this situation, so we are taking things into our own hands. If you care, donate hair." Though collection of hair has been given a newfound prominence due to the catastrophic Gulf spill, the idea is not exactly new. Hair For Oil Spills was a plan originally devised nearly a decade ago by California-based nonprofit organization Matter of Trust. From aviation to automotive, find your career at Santa Fe College.

Newborns were found to display a basic form of learning during sleep, according to a Columbia University study, which was published May 17 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and is the first to show learning during sleep. Dana Byrd, a UF psychology researcher and co-author of the study, and other researchers studied 1to 2-day-old babies in New York City to find out how they learn so much U F from their surroundings while sleeping up to 18 Research hours per day. Byrd said the researchers played a tone, followed by a gentle air puff to the babies' eyelids. After about 20 minutes, 24 of the 26 babies squinted when they heard the noise alone, without having the puff of air. It's possible this research method could help detect children at risk for autism, dyslexia and cerebral palsy, which affects motor control. "Your baby can and will be learning during sleep," Byrd said.

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 27, 2010 Editorial Forget Nothing Remember the purpose of Memorial Day he weather is going to be great, but you may want to think twice before cracking open a beer and having pool party this weekend. Monday is Memorial Day, and we encourage everybody to take the time to honor the people who died for our country, not the least among them Lance Cpl. Philip Paul Clark, an Alachua County native and 2008 Buchholz High School graduate who died on May 18 while serving in Afghanistan. Clark's body is going to be escorted into town today by the Alachua County Sheriff's Office, and his funeral service will be held at Queen of Peace Catholic Community on Friday at 9:30 a.m. While Clark's sacrifice is especially meaningful, millions of Americans have died fighting for their country since they day it was founded. It might be a good time to remember that by visiting memorial displays at Kanapaha Park on Tower Road or the Veterans for Peace's tombstones on Northwest Eighth Avenue and 34th Street. It might not go down as your happiest Sunday afternoon, but our fallen soldiers deserve to be remembered. This is not the time to talk about whether we should be in the two wars we are fighting. It is not the time to curse politicians, and it certainly is not the time to protest. There are another 364 days in the year for that. It is the time to think about Philip Paul Clark and the other soldiers who gave up their lives so we could live ours. Come Monday we should all take a break from our opinions and remember that people have died fighting for us not because they had to but because they chose to. Life Prerequisites Starting next school year, incoming high school freshmen in Florida will have to pass both Algebra 1 and Geometry in order to earn their diplomas. We could not be happier about the change. It is unlikely that anyone got into college without passing these classes, so the curriculum change only really affects the least common denominator in Florida's schools, and raising the bar can only help them. Not everyone plans on going to college after graduation, and requiring kids to know how to use a protractor probably will not make that big of an impact on how many choose to pursue higher education, but it will make their lives a little bit easier. Mastering even the most basic math concepts can take people a lot farther in life. Without an understanding of math, everything from building a bookshelf to balancing a checkbook can seem out of reach. Knowing algebra will not change your mechanic into an engineer, and learning geometry probably can not make your drywall guy an architect, but it will make them better at their jobs. It might turn out that the only benefit of the new standard is that your sandwich artist at Subway knows how many degrees are in a cheese triangle, but that would not be the worst thing in the world. The more education, the better. a l l e independent floida Rachael Pino EDITOR Paul Runnestrand Stefania Ferro MANAGING EDITORS Drew Wilson 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 include the author's name, classification and phone number Names wiii 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 Ay or send them to PO Box 14257, Gainesvi Iie, FL 32604-2257oi umns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions? Oaii 376-4458 Opinions o Column It ii --ne avvy ivioaer love a good Internet political meme. Most political junkies have their inner circles of friends on an email list-serve that they use to distribute particularly funny or applicable memes. It can be a very enjoyable hobby. For those shaky on the definition, a meme is a concept that is spread via the Internet, text message or other digital media. In most cases, the concept is novel, or a novel reformulation of an existing concept, that is quickly and easily spread from person to person. My senior thesis was about how the Internet has transformed the political process. To me, it is a fascinating subject. The Internet provides a widely accessible and easy-to-use launching platform for the citizen politician. Though it is a relatively new addition to the American lifestyle, it can often be taken for granted. One of the greatest assets of the Internet in the application of politics is the ability for the citizen to launch effective political statements (through memes, blogs, thought pieces, etc) without censorship. That is true freedom of speech -something that may have been missing in other news media. TV and radio information dissemination is still restricted to what the producers and executives of the respective media outlets choose to air, and few people have the resources to operate their own TV and radio stations. The Internet, however, is truly the citizen politico's great weapon in making a wide-reaching and lasting impression in the political arena. Consider how easily Internet memes have reached you in the 2008 election. Who didn't hear about America's most famous Internet meme political celebrity, Joe the Plumber? Or who hasn't seen the iconic stylized red and blue Obama "Hope" poster? Both were the result of successfully launched Internet memes. I believe this is a reason for the modern American political junkie to feel lucky.

The citizen must be able to Speaking Out use the Internet for valid political information without falling prey to soundbites and trolls. The soundbite is a popular tool used by some to distort the message of a politician or meaning of legislation. It is used by both sides to simplify an argument or tint a quote or speech. The Internet can expose or promulgate the soundbite -the savvy Internet politico has determined how to differentiate the two. The Internet has also given a home to the country's political trolls. These are the people who wish to be in the political arena but have no solid arguments of their own. Thus, they turn to petty personal attacks in online chat forums and comment sections for attention. Freedom of speech should always be protected, and trolls have the right to troll, but the modern online politico knows to take these fire-starters with more than a grain of salt. The Internet is such an amazing tool and can be so widely applicable in politics. According to the Pew Institute for American study, 46 percent of Americans had used the Internet to participate in the American presidential campaign by June of 2008. This is an inspiring figure for those of us who wish to see voter turnout increase. There is still much potential in its application as a tool for the people to communicate with governing bodies, and vice versa. I wish more national bills were posted online for longer periods of time -this would be a great way to expose pork barrel spending to otherwise oblivious constituents. It might also be good practice to have the federal government employ the online national debt tracker as a screen saver. It may help our current administration curb some of its overwhelming spending tendencies. Bryan Griffin is afirst-year law student. His column appears Thursdays.

THURSDAY, MAY 27, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Resident disagrees with State Attorney's decision regarding student shooting. Gainesville residents who walk with canes are advised not to lift them above their waist in the presence of law officers. Doing so may result in you being legally shot, or so argues Bill Cervone in his statement regarding Kofi AduBrempong. His inability to see Keith Smith's actions as brutal and excessively violent are indicative of his ineptitude as a State Attorney. I urge all in the community to not 'put [this] issue to rest,' but to seek alternatives to Bill Cervone's illogical conclusions about the matter. Join the Justice for Kofi Adu-Brempong Facebook group to find out about ways you can help curb police brutality, bring justice to a victim, and change the culture of the Eighth Judicial Circuit. Goals include an Independent Police Review Board, the improvement of mental health and crisis services, and a Grand Jury investigation of the incident. Andrew Lapetina The Coalition for Justice Against Police Brutality U U U Student Health Care Center offers services for sexual health. After seeing the column 'Sexual health care on the cheap' in the May 13th edition of the Alligator, we'd like to remind readers that the UF Student Health Care Center also offers a full range of sexual health care services available to students. UF students pay a health fee in their tuition that helps supports the SHCC. Visits to a primary care provider, and most of the practitioners in the women's clinic, do not require additional payment. Patients won't have to endure a long wait if they call first (352-392-1161) to make an appointment. Often, students can get an appointment the same day they call! SHCC provides testing for sexually transmitted infections and results are always confidential -not even parents can see the results, unless patients give written permission. For the comfort of our patients, all staff at our women's clinic are female. Students can get prescriptions for birth control or other medications filled at our pharmacy on-site. Some of these medications are offered at discount prices for students. Tests and medications do require payment, but the SHCC tries to keep prices at or below community rates. Another big bonus of using the Student Health Care Center is that students are assigned to a team of health care providers and will see these same doctors and nurses throughout their time at UF. Wouldn't you like to know the person helping you manage your health, instead of wondering who you're going to see and whether he or she will understand your individual needs? And SHCC is located right on campus -our main location is on Fletcher Drive near the Hub and football stadium. You can fit an appointment in between classes. Laura Mize, MA Student Health Care Center Friends of Lamar Abel share memories. Dear Lamar, Words cannot describe my feelings for you, but words are all I seem to have. Just because I cannot see and speak to you physically, you are more around me than ever before. "Everybody Ain't Abel." You had your own phrase that people actually used. Who does that?!? I used to call myself the CEO of Lamar Enterprises. You would correct me and say that title belonged to you and I could be an assistant. Well, I must say you did well for yourself and received excellent reviews: "A good friend is someone who still has your back in a bad situation knowing that you were wrong. He always defended his friends even though he knew of their flaws like drinking and driving, but he always made sure everyone made it safe after a road trip." -Elworthy Williams, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. "His time was cut short because his job was well done on earth. I'm thankful I got a chance to know him." -Carlos Dunlap, Cincinnati Bengals Defensive End "Growing up with Lamar was like watching a future star." -Adriana Crawford, Cousin "He was a man of his word." -Corey Henderson, UF football player "He had a vibe where you can tell him anything." -Chantel Johnson, UF junior "In one word, I would describe him as humble." -Woudlin Jean-Baptiste, UF engineering major "Even if he was mad, he used his tone instead of physical force because he knew he could do bodily harm." -Earv Johnson, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. "He was very detail oriented. He always wanted to do his best in every organization, because it would reflect on him." -Dr. Michael Bowie, College of Education director of recruitment, retention and multicultural affairs. Wow! Who would have guessed that funny saying created freshman year would be so true. Everybody really ain't Abel. We love you. Get some rest, friend. Erica Loewe UF student Col um n Columnist gets hands on BP's leaked memo As a corporation, British Petroleum is deeply saddened by the recent leaks in our interwebs tube that have pumped out an ever-increasing number of highly sensitive and damaging internal documents into the vital Gulf of Public Opinion. We have prepared the following memo as a "top kill procedure" on the destructive flow of information by piping loads of crap into real leaks of BP's corporate philosophy: BP has been heartened by the way our CEO, Tony Hayward, was able to use his charming British accent to make even the most odious proclamations and reversals seem somewhat palatable to a generation of Americans who will be irreparablyharmed by our recent public relations disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. Keeping in line with this logic, BP is pleased to announce that our new spokesperson will be the Geico gecko. Hiring the gecko, and thereby gleaning at least some measure of his genteel persona, will also head off any charges that BP somehow harbors little concern for the welfare of animals. In fact, this year British Petroleum has already committed more money toward helping animals dying from contact with oil and chemical dispersants than any other corporation or government in the world. Why? Because we care. BP may care more for these helpless and gentle creatures than the boot-wearing naysayers in the American political system. President Obama and the Democrats are facing a tough campaign this fall for control of Congress and are likely to back away from publicly supporting intensely communal animals like waterfowl, due to rising public resentment for the word "socialist." Sea turtles skew older and conservative, with their rock-solid breeding schedules, and thus may not be a key Obama constituency going forward. Tommy Maple While the welletters@alligatororg fare of fish and fisherman is of the utmost concern to BP, the cutthroat life of a fish mirrors our own corporate culture and the wider capitalist system enough that our company feels it necessary to ask a simple question of the American people. What is the most important natural resource in the world? While some may argue passionately that the health of the natural ecosystems and nature itself is of utmost concern and others may advocate for various non-renewable resources like oil, British Petroleum posits that the most vital natural resource in the world is the healthy corporation vigorously swimming in an unfettered ocean of free market capitalism. The recent exemplary record our company has had in job creation in the besieged Gulf region should be celebrated rather than vilified, especially as we still have access to the valuable oil well itself. The true test of our new gecko spokesman will be his ability to use a somber tone and elicit sympathy when we give American taxpayers the bill for removing all the dead animals from our oil. Like the majestic dolphin, a corporation is a bellwether species that signals the overall health and vitality of a system. While the outright destruction of the coastline of much of America is certainly regrettable, we cannot sit idly by and let a huge global corporation like BP simply die in the muck like so many millions of living creatures.

"I go to Midtown and all the frat boys are like 'love the stache, it's so manly." Facial hair fad hits Gainesville's By KATHERINE BEIN alligator writer Hey man, what are you wearing on your face this season? If you've been keeping up with facial hair fashion trends, you know we've been chin-deep in lumberjack scruffle. But this season, the ironic beard is usurped by the even-more ironic mustache. I first discovered the mustache thing when I was in Chicago last August. Every time I saw a bike ride by, I had handlebar double-vision. I thought at first it was just a regional variant, but now I know the mustaches have trickled down to the Dirty South. Whether it's thin like a pencil, curved like Dali's or creepy like a sex offender's, Gainesville's fashion-forward faces are increasingly graced with sweet 'staches. Take for instance Raul Prado, 23, who was recently a model during Gainesville Fashion Week. Prado said he'd always stayed babysmooth until fashion week officials directed him to stop. When they gave him raving responses over his new "epic mustache," he decided he would keep it. "Two of my coworkers have started growingthem now," Prado said, recognizing his trend-setter position. Matt Everhart, 24, has worn his mustache for eight months and loves it, but admits his little friend's popularity is sometimes overshadowing. "There's a man behind the mustache," he said. "I've started telling people (on the street), 'Listen, my eyes are up here."' Although some men might feel burdened by the attention a mustache commands, others, like Alex Orlando, are thrilled to show it off. "There's a man bhind the muataeh a. I've started telling people (on the street), 'Listen, my eyes are up here."' MATT EVERHART mustache wearer "I can't live without this thing," Orlando said. It's my best friend." He understands the power a 'stache can yield. After all, his girlfriend, Erin Rauch, places it high on her list of endearing qualities. "It's fun to kiss. It tickles," Rauch said. "It's not a burden. It's a nice little addition. I mean, if he gets rid of it we're guys breaking up." Of course, every fashion movement has its critics at first, like 22-year-old Ashley Harvin. "I think they make guys look like '70s porn stars," she said. "It's gross." It's negativity like this that made Joel Kienitz, also known around town as DJ JeRK, shave his experimental lip-accessory after only two weeks. "A lot of people liked it, but I was getting a lot of weird looks from girls," Kienitz said. "I thought it was awesome, but it was too tough for me on the fashion frontlines." Although haters are going to hate no matter what, the reality is that there's no stopping a trend in motion. Even Google knows the whisker-wind is changing direction. Carefully studying Google trends' term-tracking tool, a steady increase in searches for "mustaches" started mid-2009 and continues strong into this summer. So, whether you love them or hate them, prepare yourselves for the mustache madness that is heading our way. "I think they're an inspiring tradition, the symbol of a civilized and progressive man," said mustache enthusiast Loic Robertson. "If I could grow one, I would." GARDENING tom Gardening in home is easy, cheap By ERIN RAUCH avenue writer Want to learn how to grow weeds? Have you been itchingto use your green thumb this summer? Then I'm here to tell you that it's not only easy, it's fun and affordable. After a lengthy sojourn to a couple local garden centers, I came to the blistering realization, thanks to a Master Gardener at the UF/IFAS Alachua County Extension Office, thatthis particular type of sowing endeavor is not as difficult as one would imagine. + Step 1: Finding a place for your garden All of the shrubbery mentioned herein can be conveniently planted in an affordable gardening container. The sun is (obviously) a primary factor when gardening, so you need to decide where to plantfirst. If you have a south-facing balcony, you will most likely have the best exposure. For those of you who are living in dorms, you may only have access to a window. A house plant is probably your best option. Step 2: Choosing the right soil type Most plants prefer neutral to slightly acidic soil that is well drained. Professional soil mixes found at garden centers should work fine. + Step 3: Picking which plants you want to grow Don't get complicated. Ask a gardener what works best. Some varieties: Annuals completetheirlife cycle in oneyear and are generally used for color. Impatiens, petunias and pansies are a few examples. Perennials flower every year and are primarily used to add color to a space. Butterfly plants, you guessed it, attract butterflies. Milkweed, pentas and salvias are only a few of the varieties you can plant. If you're looking to witness the entire circle of life, the passion vine attracts caterpillars. Edible plants include herbs such as basil, parsley and cilantro. Herbs are easy to grow and can be added to any meal -even your Ramen noodles. Another variety of edible plants are vegetables such as tomatoes, eggplant and peppers. If you're lazy, house plants are the way to go. They're easy to grow and maintain. + Step 4: Buying your plant supplies Talk to some experts. Garden Gate Nursery, located off of Northwest 43rd Street and Harmony Gardens, located off of Northwest 13th Street, are among the garden centers in Gainesville. If you have extra cash and are feeling a little more adventurous, there's a hydroponics store in town called the Gardener's Edge, located off of Northwest Eighth Avenue. + More information and advice The Master Gardeners at UF/IFAS Alachua County Extension Office are always willing to share plant knowledge. Visit their website, alachua.ifas.ufl.edu, or give them a call at 352-955-2402 for more information and advice on using and honing your green thumb.

How about making your own alcohol? Part chemistry, part cooking, part art and part drinking, home brewing is a great way to pass those extra hours of summer daylight. My passion for brewing started with winemaking last summer. Since then, carrots, strawberries, apples, blueberries and honey are only some of the ingredients to fall prey to my hobby. Regrettably, wine must age before drinking it, and although I have several dozen bottles of homemade booze in my kitchen cabinet, I'm still playing the waiting game. Bowing to my impatience, I turned to beer, which can be ready to drink in as little as a month. First, let me dispel any misconceptions you may have: Brewing is tlhe beer. 1f you can dO that, YOU can brew. The first step in making delicious homemade alcohol is buying a brew kit. Although it's possible to brew using no specialized equipment, you should learn to rely on skill, tools and measurement rather than luck. Hoggetowne Ale Works is Gainesville's only brewing supply store, and it has everything you need to get started. Brewing kits start atjust $69, a very student-friendly price. And if you take care of it, the equipment will last forever. Case in point: I use my dad's kit he purchased more than 30 years ago. Once you have your kit, the ingredients to make a batch of beer -five gallons -will cost between $25 and $50. It sounds like a lot, but beyond your start-up costs that's well under mall. extract and fermentable sug-7 ars already removed from the grain. Think of it as buying a can of corn instead of chopping the kernels off a cob -it saves a lot of time and gets you consistent results. Once you're comfortable with the general process and familiar with the nuances of your equipment, you can integrate actual grains and other ingredients into your recipes. This makes brewing more difficult but allows for unlimited creativity and custom ization. Along with brewing kits, Hoggetowne Ale Works offers hops, grains, recipes, specialty ingredients, winemaking supplies and, most importantly, expert advice. Everyone who works at Hoggetown is a brewer and works hard to make your life easier, offering consultation and Richard Stehi / Alligator Andrew McCain, 22, adds malt extract o h me brew mix. n average batch of home brew will make about 50 12-ounce beers. troubleshooting through every stage of your brewing projects.

THURSDAY, MAY 27, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 11 Droney Woods Sound Tour brings nature, music together ~:A4,S -t tVVM -0 I Rorstrom /Alligator Nataija Mari manipulates keyboard and pedals at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens. EVENT WAS HELD IN KANAPAHA BOTANICAL GARDENS. By ALEX ORLANDO avenue writer Electric hums echoed down gravel paths, through trees and over creeks as a crowd meandered its way through the woods of southwest Gainesville on a steamy Saturday afternoon. They congregated under bamboo shoots and sat among monkey grass to watch Andrew Chadwick as he hooked up his typewriter to a contact microphone and began typing, the percussive sounds of the punching keys amplified by a nearby boom box. In his right hand was a children's accordion, which he used to complement the typewriter's chatter, both sounds being pumped through the Kanapaha Botanical Gardens by his speaker in a scene that recalled Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters. Chadwick was the first of about 10 performers stationed throughout the gardens as part of the Droney Woods Sound Tour, an audio tour of the gardens featuring synth pop and experimental electronic musicians from around Gainesville. "I love nature and doing electronic music," said Christopher Miller, 41, who organized the tour. "There is a juxtaposition of sorts. It's two things that shouldn't be together." Miller said the tour was the first of its kind in Gainesville and was modeled after a similar tour on the banks of the Santa Fe River in Worthington Springs, organized by Loren Knack. Miller was able to organize the tour with the help of his uncle, Don Goodman, the founder and director of Kanapaha Botanical Gardens. As he wiped sweat from his forehead after the tour, he said he planned to do another in the fall when the weather gets cooler. Knack, who performed under the name "Ironing" on Saturday, set up five tape recorders in a ring around the 52 attendees who sat in the filtered sunlight under an oak tree. Each recorder played a different sound: static, accordion, chirping frogs or clicking sounds. Some sat admiring the scenery; others sat with their eyes closed. "I think that [the sounds] the musicians bring are not of nature, but they complement it," he said. "It kind of helps people focus on what's around them." Paul Pino, a 21-year-old art student at UF, played a series of notes in the pitch of B flat from his MacBook for his performance. A pitch, he said, that is present in nature. "Alligators go crazy around Bflat," he said, also noting scientific studies that have found pitches of B flat resonating from black holes. Pino timed his song to the beat of a bamboo fountain in the garden, which was designed to scare away deer with a loud thump every 30 seconds when it had filled with water. He said he chose to perform in the area next to the fountain because he wanted his environment to be a part of his music. "It was definitely a way of interacting with your environment," he said. "No one could overpower the sound of the environment." Other musicians played their music through Honeytone portable amplifiers, which were just loud enough to break through the midday buzzing of cicadas. Chadwick, who performed with his typewriter, said he preferred playing outdoors to indoor venues. "It's better than bar chatter," he said.

If you're going to plan around parties, Weinbender says the first night and the last night "everybody goes big." When it comes to food, Weinbender suggests raw almonds as a high-energy, high-protein snack. But make sure notto get the roasted or salted kind because that will just make you dehydrated. It's also a good idea to avoid eating anything scary. When stuck with a portable toilet, "you don't want to be having to blow up a bathroom," he said. And though you may love them, don't bring your dogs or other animals. "They don't like music. They're just bummed out," Weinbender said. Then it just comes down to good old common sense. And the Internet. Look for stuff you're going to enjoy, and plan ahead to avoid any major surprises. Vinyl records see resurgence, boost in retail sales By ALI RIECH avenue writer While a penchant for minimalism and convenient digital technology drives the majority of music sales (or lack thereof), a growing number of music fans are returning to a bulkier but more interactive format the vinyl record. Lily Darnell became interested in collecting records after finding a cardboard box stuffed with '70s-era folk-rock in her parents' garage. "I feel like MP3s made me lose out on any sort of physical interaction with the music I was listening to. I decided to get into records so I could get back to really hearing music," Darnell said. Darnell is not alone, either. According to the Recording Industry Association of America, records are the only physical music format to experience any growth in sales. From 2007 to 2008, vinyl LP and EP sales rose by 124 percent -a figure which, though significant, may be modest since it doesn't account for used or independent record sales. Digital sales rose by only 30 percent. The boom in record sales is showing locally as well. Hear Again Music & Movies owner Andrew Schaer saw a growth in record sales over the past four months. Schaer formerly expected about equal sales in movies and music, but thanks to the vinyl-revival, records now outsell both CDs and DVDs. "People have been growing up listening to mp3s for the past 10 or 15 years -when they hear the uncompressed [vinyl] format it's an eye-opener. People feel ripped off by the compressed version of their favorite albums," Schaer said. Vinyl collectors tend to describe the sound of records as opposed to digital formats as richer, warmer and fuller. Analog records produce a wider range of frequencies that CDs and mp3s cannot reproduce. Digital-music proponents tend to dismiss this claim by saying the frequencies are inaudible. However, some suggest that the frequencies are felt rather than heard. "Records have a more omni-dimensional sound that really fills the room a lot better. Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff A display of records for sale behind the counter at Hear Again Music & Movies, 201 SE second Ave. The store sells a wide variety of vinyl LP's, a format which regularly outsell CD's. LPs sound warmer, and you are more likely to notice subtle sounds and instruments," Schaer said. Another appealing aspect of the vinyl sound is referred to as surface noise -the hum of the needle alongthe record grooves and the occasional crackling sound unheard-of in the comparatively sterile digital format. "It's sort of a warm, fuzzy sound. I love it," Darnell said. Because turntables are notoriously difficult to operate while driving, digital music remains popular due, at least in part, to its portability. Labels like Sub Pop now include digital download with most vinyl record sales. iTunes tried to join the analog-trend by promoting "iTunes LPs," which bundle artwork, lyrics and videos with full album downloads instead of its typical single mp3 downloads. This particular digital LP promotion failed to generate any noteworthy trend, however. The introduction of mp3 technology spelled the end of the CD around 2001. Declining CD sales pushed a recording industry response to thwart a beast that proved unstoppable -online music sharing. "What's also great about vinyl is that people are finally contributing to the artists they love again and supporting local stores," Schaer said. "If you want to hear an album the way it's meant to be heard, listen to it on vinyl."

Sports THURSDAY, MAY 27, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF's Johnson falters in 10-6 loss to LSU 0 UF WILL FACE NO. 15 ARKANSAS IN AN ELIMINATION GAME TODAY. By TYLER JETT Alligator Writer tjett@alligator org HOOVER, Ala. -The pie has soured for Brian Johnson. About three weeks after receiving the traditional cream-filled dessert to the face in celebration of a dominating effort against LSU (37-20), the UF pitcher lasted just 3.2 horrific innings in Wednesday's rematch. Johnson, who hit a grand slam and allowed two earned runs in 6.1 frames on May 2, was pulled after surrendering seven runs on nine hits as No. 4 Florida (40-14) fell to LSU 10-6 in the opening round of the SEC Tournament in Regions Park Stadium. UF will play an elimination game against No. 15 Arkansas (40-17) today 30 minutes after the matchup between Auburn and South Carolina. "(The Tigers) swung the bat real well," Johnson said. "They were aggressive. I just fell behind a little bit and didn't have my stuff." Johnson's outing went south in the second when LSU designated hitter Matt Gaudet hit a lead-off homer. The next five LSU batters reached base, including an RBI single by No. 9 hitter Mason Katz. Johnson struggled with his command, walking three in the inning, but UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan SEE BASEBALL, PAGE 23 Harrison uiamona / Aiigazor wiani UF pitcher Brian Johnson allowed seven earned runs in 3.2 innings during the Gators'10-6 loss to LSU in the opening round of the SEC Baseball Tournament in Hoover, Ala., Wednesday night. Title bid falls short By ANDREW OLSON Alligator Writer In the third set of the last singles match to decide the championship, Marrit Boonstra was one game away from an ideal ending to her college career. She was up 5-4 over Mallory Burdette, and needed only one more game to make her team the new national champions. The third set ended 7-5, with Boonstra on the losing end. "My heart just aches for Marrit (Boonstra)," UF coach Roland Thornqvist said. "She has given this program everything she has. It's just not fair for it to come down to a result like this for her." The Cardinal won five of six first sets, putting the pressure on Florida to force at least two matches into a third set.

In this weekend's NCAA Super Regional matchup between No. 4 Florida (46-8) and No. 13 Arizona State (44-15), which begins Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in Gainesville, a trip to the Women's College World Series, conference bragging rights and a legacy of sustained greatness will all be on the line. But even with all that to be played for, UF coach Tim Walton is energized about achieving a different goal. "I'm excited about where we're able to go I DID NOT KNOW THAT E The Southeastern Conference has implimented a 20-second pitch clock for the conference baseball tournament to speed up the pace of the games. See Story, Page 22. and I know everybody in the media thinks we're bound for the World Series and we're probably looking to win a national championship, but we're not," Walton said. "We're just looking to have fun and go out and take care of business the next game. There's no pressure on us, we don't feel the same expectations that everybody else does. We're just excited to win." Although Walton and Walton the team are focused on having fun and taking things one game at a time, they still realize how important this weekend and the last were to the Florida softball program.

22, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 27, 2010 SEC enforces pitch clock By ANTHONY CHIANG Alligator Staff Writer achiang@alligator org HOOVER, Ala. -The Gators faced a brand new opponent Wednesday -the clock. No. 4 Florida (40-14) saw its first-round opponent LSU (37-20) less than a month ago, but it had never been exposed to the new pitch clock that is being experimented with in this week's Southeastern Conference Tournament. It has been implemented in an attempt to speed things up, and it did. In last year's conference tourney, games lasted an average of 3 hours and 20 minutes. Two of the first three contests in this season's tournament finished in less than 2 hours and 40 minutes. The Gators' game was the longest of the first three at 3 hours and 17 minutes due in part to the combined 30 hits the teams racked up. The new clock was not expected to impact the Gators, who preach a quick and consistent rhythm on the mound. "It didn't affect me at all," UF starting pitcher Brian Johnson said. "I work at a fast pace anyway." However, the freshman hurler struggled as he allowed nine hits in just 3.2 innings while giving up seven runs. The new rules that come along with the clock include a 20-second timer for the pitcher. When the bases are empty, hurlers have 20 seconds to deliver each pitch. The batter is rewarded with an added ball to the count if the pitcher fails to throw before the clock expires. UF's game went without an incident as each pitcher worked efficiently. In order to help give the players a better idea of the allotted time, they have added a digitalized clock in right-center field that counts down the seconds. A fourth umpire that is not on the field controls the new timer. Another strategy the SEC is using to make things go by faster is shortening the gap in between frames. There will be just 108 Baseball seconds from when the last out is made and the first pitch of each half inning is thrown. Despite all of the added regulations to control the pace of the game, coach Kevin O'Sullivan did not want to burden his players with adjustments. "We kept it simple," O'Sullivan said. "If the catcher makes the last out, we make sure we have the back up (catcher) in there (to catch warm-up pitches)." If these new policies go over smoothly this week, they could become part of conference play in the regular season too.

THURSDAY, MAY 27, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 23 Gators' late-inning rally falls short Kf gts* SuperV BevY Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers t*5 4 BASEBALL, from page 21 kept Johnson in until the fourth inning. The southpaw was finally pulled after giving up a double and single to sophomore Tyler Hanover and first baseman Blake Dean, who both scored later in the inning. Unlike Johnson, LSU ace Anthony Ranaudo redeemed a nightmare outing against Florida on April 30, when the Gators chased the right wander after two innings. Ranaudo, a projected top-10 pick in the MLB Draft before the season, recorded five strike outs while throwing a season-high 7.2 innings on Wednesday. "You got to tip your cap to him," UF center fielder Matt den Dekker said. "He battled and gave them a great chance to win." If the Gators can take anything positive from Wednesday's game, it is there effort in the eighth inning. Den Dekker led off the frame with his 12th long ball of the season. Freshman Austin Maddox then singled and right fielder Daniel Piggot drew a walk to force Ranaudo out of the contest. Both base runners scored later in the frame, cutting LSU's lead to 9-6. But the Tigers added an insurance run in the ninth and reliever Paul Bertuccini closed the door on the Gators in the ninth.* Seven Gators recorded a hit on Wednesday, led by Den Dekker, who drove in three runs with his homer and a fifth-inning double. And, despite his struggles on the mound, Johnson went 3 for 4 from the plate. But UF was still outhit 19-11. After clinching the regular-season title last weekend against South Carolina, Florida appeared to suffer from a hangover Wednesday. MadBase ball dox spoiled a potential rally in the fourth by over-running third base, and even the shore-handed Nolan Fontana committed his third error of the season. "They were really flat," O'Sullivan said of his team. "I could tell before we stretched. I understand what we accomplished in the regular season, but it's a separate season. We can't just turn it on and turn it off. We talked about that. We can't just go through the motions this weekend then next weekend go ahead and turn it on full speed." UF looks for individual NCAA titles TENN IS, from page 21 snapped by Lindsay Burdette in a 6-3, 6-3 loss at the No. 2 spot. No. 9 Lauren Embree swung the momentum back in Florida'a favor with an upset against No. 4 Hilary Barte 6-4, 6-4. With the match tied, three Gators who lost their first sets were all in the middle of trying to put together come-from-behind wins. Caroline Hitimana fell short of a comeback at court No. 6 but a win by Joanna Mather meant the championship trophy came down to No. 65 Boonstra and No. 33 Mallory Burdette. Boonstra fell short in the first set 6-4, but edged Burdette in the second, 7-6. Boonstra battled to a 5-4 lead in the third, but Burdette held service to tie the match 5-5. After Burdette took the following game, Boonstra failed to force another tiebreaker, losing the set 7-5. Individual Championships: An impressive run that included singles wins over Nos. 4, 7, 10 and 11 came to end for No. 8 Embree. No. 35 California's Mari Andersson knocked off the ITA National Rookie of the Year in the three sets 6-1, 1-6, 6-2. After amassing a 26-match winning streak, Will made sure her losing streak stopped at one. The No. 8 freshman bounced back from Tuesday's loss with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Washington State's No. 61 Liudmila Vasilieva on Wednesday. The win advances Will to Boonstra today's round of 32. Boonstra will be joining Will for the round of 32 in the doubles portion of the NCAA Individual Championship. They will be joined by the No. 29 team of Embree and Mather. SEC and Pac-10 battle for conference supremacy in Super Regionals SOFTBALL, from page 21 off of back-to-back WCWS appearances, but were still facing questions about if they could maintain that greatness in the post-Stacey Nelson era. Walton feels those questions have been answered. "I'm just happy about being able to set goals and achieve regional success," Walton said. "Moving on to Super Regionals is huge for stability in your program. "I think I said in the beginning of the year, it's going to be one of the most important years of our program because of how much success we've had in the past and whether or not we'd be able to transition from one pitcher to the other, and I think Stephanie (Brombacher) answered that call." While Florida can use this weekend to cement itself as one of the NCAA's premier softball programs, the SEC can use it to assert itself as the nation's top conference. Last season, the SEC accounted for three of the final four teams in the WCWS, but were still unable to come away with the league's first national championship as Washington pulled through to give the Pacific 10 its 21st title. The Huskies knocked off Florida last season in the championship series. Washington swept the Gators in the best-of-three series behind dominant performances by ace Danielle Lawrie, who gave up just one earned run in 14 innings of work. "I'm just happy about being able to set goals and achieve regional success." Tim Walton UF Softball coach This year, both conferences got seven teams into the NCAA tournament, with six Pac-10 teams and four SEC teams advancing to Super Regionals. As things currently stand, the Pac-10 has the edge over the SEC, boasting a 19-2 record to the SEC's 15-6. But that could very easily change this weekend, as the conferences will collide when Florida takes on Arizona State and Georgia meets California. If the Gators can advance they will move themselves one step closer to a championship and bring their conference one step closer to national supremacy. UF pitcher Stephanie Brombacher (32) has filled in the void left by former ace Stacey Nelson, and helped the Gators remain an elite program this season.

24, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 27, 2010 t n 2 r4 '' Gators set for NCAA Preliminaries Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers By JESSE SIMONTON Alligator Writer While it was a great accomplishment, the Southeastern Conference Outdoor Championship was just an appetizer for the outdoor season. This weekend the Gators track and field teams are prepared for the entr6e and ready for the opportunity to taste the dessert. Both the men and women's teams begin their NCAA championship ambitions today when they participate in the three-day NCAA Preliminary Rounds in Greensboro, N.C. Hot off its first SEC Outdoor Championship since 1987, the men's team enters the meet as the nation's No. 1 ranked team. The women's team, which finished a close second to LSU at SEC's, also enters the meet ranked in the nation's top 10, sitting at number six. Florida head coach Mike Holloway, recently named SEC Men's Head Coach of the Year, said he was proud of both teams at SEC's, and that both are ready to compete and qualify this coming weekend. "We just got to do what we've been doing," he said. Unlike the previous seven years, the 2010 campaign is the first season for the NCAA Preliminary Rounds. The NCAA moved from the four-region format to the two regionals, East and West. North Carolina A&T University is hosting the East Regional, while the University of Texas at Austin is hosting the West Regional. There are no winners this weekend, only qualifiers. The fields of each individual event consist of 48 athletes with the top 12 advancing to the NCAA Outdoor Championships. The top 12 teams also advance from the 24 teams competing in each relay. The Florida men enter the preliminary rounds leading the East Region in six different events: Kemal Mesic in the shot put, Calvin Smith in the 400-meter dash and the top 4x100 meter relay and 4x400 meter relay teams. Christian Taylor, recently named SEC Men's Field Athlete of the Year, Track is the East Regional's top long jumper and top triple jumper. The women's team leads the East Regional in three different events led by SEC Female Field Athlete of the Year Mariam Kevkhishvili in the shot put. Charlotte Browning in the 1,500-meter run and Shara Proctor in the long jump also lead the region in their respective events. After the SEC's were marred with inclement weather and long delays, Holloway said he expects much of the same this weekend during the preliminary rounds. "It always rains," he said. "I haven't checked it [weather], but I always expect it to rain."
