Indoor tanning



tax starts today


* ABOUT 10 PERCENT OF
AMERICANS TAN INDOORS
EACH YEAR.

MICHAELA TRIMBLE
Alligator Contributing Writer

A 10 percent tax will be added
to indoor tanning bills beginning
today.
The tax is part of the health care
reform President Obama signed into
law in March.
The tax will be placed on elec-
tronic products that require one or
more ultraviolet lamps with wave-
lengths between 200 and 400 nano-
meters, according to Internal Rev-
enue Service guidelines.
The tax is expected to produce
$2.7 billion by 2019, according to
the Congressional Joint Committee
on Taxation. This money will fund
the new health care reform package
and requires tanning salons to col-
lect and report the tax to the govern-
ment each quarter.
The tanning tax replaced the 5


percent "Botax" on cosmetic surgery
after complaints from medical and
dermatological associations.
John Overstreet, spokesman for
the Indoor Tanning Association,
said the tax is an intrusion by the
government into Americans' lives.
"You better watch. Next you
know they will go down to Daytona
and put a tax on lying in the sun,"
Overstreet said.
According to Overstreet, busi-
nesses are already on the edge as is.
"You can't raise product by 10
percent and not have an effect,"
Overstreet said. "Those that are al-
ready struggling will hurt, no ques-
tion about it."
The tax will affect an estimated
18,000 small businesses nationwide
including retail, manufacturing and
distribution businesses, as well as
the 10 percent of Americans who tan
indoors each year, according to the
ITA.
Mandi Nazzaro, owner of The
Golden Gator, said she hopes there
will be more demand for spray tan-

Free Wi-Fi at Starbucks


By BRITTANY DAVIS
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF students can now have free Internet
with their grande, triple-espresso, non-fat, ex-
tra hot chai tea lattes when they go to an off-
campus Starbucks.
Although the Starbucks on UF's campus of-
fers free wireless Internet to students through
the university's network, off-campus franchis-
es have charged $3.99 for two hours of access.
Free Wi-Fi or not, Brittany Loftus, an educa-
tion graduate student at UF, said she does not
plan to become a regular Starbucks customer.
Loftus said Coffee Culture on Northwest 13th
Street has been her favorite study spot for the
past two years.
"I come here because it's a local business,
and I would rather support a local business
than support a national chain," she said.
In the fall, Starbucks will also offer in-store


access to The Wall Street Journal, but that
won't entice Loftus to make the switch.
The Wall Street Journal is a good newspa-
per, but there are plenty of other free newspa-
pers online, she said.
"I would rather support a local
business than support a national
chain."

Coffee Culture owner Alisa Rowe Kenney
said she struggled to compete with Starbucks
when she opened her first store in 2003. But
she, like other coffee shop owners, found a
niche. People who like the "slick" atmosphere
prefer Starbucks, while people who like an

UF promotes creativity


By ANDREW PANTAZI
Alligator Writer

Freshmen who've come to UF dur-
ing Summer B will get a glimpse of the
artistic and cultural experiences at the
university.
Creative B, a collaboration between
the College of Fine Arts, the Ham Mu-

tute and a number of other colleges,
aims to make the summer semester
more exciting by bringing artistic
events to campus.
While the atmosphere of Summer B
is usually not as vibrant as that of the


fall or spring, the purpose of Creative B
is exposing freshmen to cultural activi-
ties during their first days on campus,
said Andy Howard, spokesman for the
College of Fine Arts.

GatorVision relocates


By HOLLY KANE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Come August, journalism students will
have another reason to be familiar with their
college besides grades.
The University Athletic Association is
partnering with the College of Journalism
and Communications by moving its Gator-
Vision facility into Weimer Hall.
The new facility will include editing and
office spaces that could offer the college's
broadcasting students work experience and
resume fillers, said Jerry Wetzel, director of
electronic media for UAA.
GatorVision, the radio and television
arm of the athletic department, produces TV
shows, oversees GatorZone.com and streams
live sports-related events online.
"It creates synergy between the UAA and
the college, which is going to be a positive
move for getting students involved in sports
broadcasting," Wetzel said.
GatorVision had been looking for a better
office space and learning environment for a

number of years, Wetzel said, before consid-
ering Weimer Hall.
"It just made sense," he said.
GatorVision will focus on the introduction
of high-definition, non-linear and tapeless
technologies into the new space so students
are better able to keep up with the industry.
"This collaboration dramatically enhanc-
es our ability to deliver high quality multi-
media productions for Gator athletics, while
also serving as a significant educational op-
portunity for University of
On Florida students," said Jeremy
Campus Foley, director of athletics, in a
press release.
UAA will staff office spaces and editing
areas where Wetzel said mass communica-
tion students can learn about editing, report-
ing and creating broadcast stories, which can
be used for building their resumes.
UAA will foot the $450,000-bill to cover
integration and move-in, set to be complete
by Aug. 15, although Wetzel is unsure when
it will be open for use.
"It depends on when we get the furniture
in." he said.


UF RESEARCH

Lightning researchers


get $9.8-million grant


By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Heavy rains and lightning storms are
common in Gainesville during summer.
That's convenient for UF lightning
researchers, who recently received a
$9.8-million federal grant to hire gradu-
ate and undergraduate students, as well
as purchase new equipment.
"It's pretty exciting," said Vladimir
Rakov, professor of electrical and com-
puter engineering at UF. "Funding for
lightning research is usually pretty low."
Most grants for lightning research are
given following lightning-related disas-
ters like the lightning strike of Apollo 12
in the 1960s, he said. However, no such
disasters have occurred recently, he said.
The grant went into effect June 1, and
seven UF graduate and undergraduate
students have already been hired. The
grant's purpose is to study how light-
ning makes its way from the cloud to the
ground, and how it selects where it will
strike, he said. Researchers need the as-


distance of several high-speed cameras to
capture pictures of strikes. They already
have three such cameras and will look to
"It's pretty exciting. Funding for
lightning research is usually
pretty low."
Vladimir Rakov
professor of electrical and computer
engineering at UF

purchase two or three more, he said.
The new cameras will be able to film
at 3 million frames per second and will
be used at the research facility at Camp
Blanding, where researchers have the ca-
pability to artificially trigger lightning.
To trigger the lightning, researchers
connect a wire to a rocket and launch it
at a thundercloud. When a cloud is ready
to discharge a bolt of lightning, they fire
the rocket toward the cloud. The rocket
creates a stronger electrical field near the
cloud, which triggers a lightning strike to
where the wire is grounded.

Senators


approve 4


nominees

By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer

Student Body President Ashton Charles
has finished her nominations for the last
empty Student Government cabinet seats.
Senators unanimously approved the
four remaining nominees during Tues-
day's meeting after interviewing them,
some via speakerphone, about their expe-
rience and ideas for their cabinets.
Charles addressed senators over the
phone as she boarded a plane in Washing-
ton, D.C., and briefly told them about why
she chose her nominees.
Amanda Griffin will hold the position
of supervisor of elec-
Student tions, James Dieterle
Government will be the Athletics
Cabinet Secretary, Pau-
la Irvin will be the Advertising Cabinet
Director and Casey Goldstein will be the
director of the Disability Affairs Cabinet
Director.
Senators questioned Griffin about how
she plans to change the SG elections.She
said she wants to make sure her assistants
are well-versed in the 700 codes, which
outline the election rules in the Student
Body constitution.
Griffin said she would not change any
election codes, such as those dealing with
door-to-door campaigning, without the
approval of the Senate.
"I would never think of changing any-
thing unless I was told to do so," she said.

Grad wins top broadcasting contest
By ANDREW PANTAZI dent reporters from a series of monthly competitions held dur-
Alligator Writer ing the school year. At the championship, the students are given
on-the-spot news assignments with no information given before-
Miles Doran, a recent UF graduate, won the Hearst National hand.
Television Broadcast News Championship and a $5,000 prize in Doran has gone to the Hearst championships twice before,
New York City June 11. The championship chooses the top stu- both times in San Francisco. In 2008, his sophomore year, he re-
ceived fourth place in radio news. The next year, he earned third
place in television news.
This time was different.
"I already had some contacts in the city which helped me," he
said.
Doran, who graduated April 30 with a degree in telecommu-
nications, said he was more prepared this time around because he
was already living in New York City working for CBS.
7 s"This year, it was about security in New York after the Times
Square bombing attempt a month or two ago," he said.
Contestants filmed the news on June 9 and edited on June 10.
Despite being familiar with the city, Doran still met obstacles.
"We didn't have a car, and we had to lug all this equipment
through the subway and taxis," he said. "That made it a little bit
more challenging. It was also raining that evening.., but every-
thing turned out all right."
He said he never doubted that his story would come through.
Tom Krynski, WRUF's news director and one of Doran's men-
tors, said Doran's success was not surprising.
"He enjoyed it so much," Krynski said. "It wasn't work to him.
It wasn't a burden to him to do something special."
While working for Krynski, Doran competed against profes-
sionals and students to win a national Edward R. Murrow Award.
His story outlining the inner workings of security at UF football
games won for best use of sound and also earned first place in
a Society of Professional Journalists' competition for in-depth re-
porting.
Doran's curiosity, work ethic and ability to look at things dif-
ferently help him find stories, Krynski said.
"He was willing to give up other things to do what he loved to
do," Krynski said.
Although Doran worked for WRUF's radio stationand WUFT's
TV station as a student, his interest in broadcasting started before
he hit college. He shadowed people in meteorology in third grade,
according to his mother, Wendy Doran, of Palm Harbor. He also
accompanied his father, who works in marine transportation,
tracking storms in Puerto Rico.
"We basically told him if you want to get something going you
need to be the one to do it. He worked tirelessly," Wendy Doran
said.
Although people told Miles Doran he couldn't get an intern-
ship in high school, he finally got one working for WFTS, an ABC

UF student arrested for battery, trafficking drugs


By KAT BEIN
Alligator Writer


A 22-year-old UF student was arrested
and charged with trafficking large amounts
of marijuana and cocaine late Tuesday night
after attempting to run from police officers.
Cameron Schmidt, who was wearing a
backpack filled with what was later found
to be drug paraphernalia and a gun, was
stopped around 11 p.m. while walking east
on Northwest Third Avenue with a friend,
according to the Gainesville Police Depart-
ment report.
A Gainesville Police officer first noticed


the pair walking down the street holding
red Solo cups.
When asked what was in the cups, both
Schmidt and his friend told the officer they
were drinking whiskey and Coke. When the
officer asked the two to step to the front of
the squad car, they started running south on
Northwest 12th Terrace, the report stated.
The officer chased the men in his car
and caught up with them in the old Mel-
low Mushroom parking lot on University
Avenue. Schmidt was caught, but his friend
continued to run south until he was out of
sight, the report stated.
Schmidt spun around in the officer's


grip and started fighting him to get away.
He punched the officer in the face multiple
times and pulled his hair, the report said.
Schmidt threw his
backpack away during the
fight and yelled, "I have
cocaine ... I can't go to jail.
I'm in school."
Schmidt was finally
Tasered, which stopped
Schmidt him from resisting long
Schmidt enough for back-up of-
ficers to arrive. He was evaluated by EMS
and refused medical treatment, according
to the police report.


Schmidt's friend was found by a K-9 Jus-
tice unit at College Manor Apartments at
1216 SW 2nd Ave., the report said.
A search of Schmidt's backpack turned
up 32.5 grams of marijuana packaged in
separate plastic bags, 56.6 grams of cocaine
and a loaded .22 caliber Sig Sauer handgun.
Schmidt has been charged with battery
on an officer, carrying a concealed weapon
without a license, selling cannabis within
1,000 feet of a school, possession of drug
paraphernalia, trafficking drugs, resisting
arrest without violence and an open con-
tainer violation, according to the report.
His bond is set at $405,550.


About 2,100 fans pack theater for 'Eclipse' premiere


By ALYSA ORADAT
Alligator Contributing Writer

When Tyler Brooks' credit card
company called about unusual ac-
tivity and spending, he had to tell
the truth. No, his credit card wasn't
stolen. He spent $500 to purchase
50 tickets for his family and friends
to see the third installment of "The
Twilight Saga: Eclipse."
Brooks was just one of about
2,100 people who arrived at Regal
Butler Plaza Cinema 14, 3101 SW
35th Blvd., to pick up their tickets


to the premiere of the hit vampire-
themed movie from midnight to 3
a.m. Wednesday.
Those who arrived to purchase
tickets at the box office were out of
luck.
"I bought my tickets the day af-
ter advance tickets were available,"
said Lizzi Condo, who was sport-
ing a handmade black T-shirt read-
ing, "Bite me, it's my birthday."
Condo celebrated her 20th birth-
day in Theater 11 with about 500
other die-hard fans who were ea-
ger to find out which mythical hero


would win the heroine's heart in
the final battle of werewolf versus
vampire.

"I'm team threesome. For-
get Bella, I want both."
Ada Martinez
blood donor

"Being labeled as a die-hard
fan sounds a little intense," Condo
said. "Although ... I am here on my
birthday."
On an excitement scale from one


to 10, Stephanie Gruber, 22, was at
a 10.
She purchased her tickets more
than a month ago in anticipation of
catching the midnight showing.
Gruber, who is 26 weeks preg-

Editorial

Cold Cuts

County has no more

room to slash budget
Alachua County Commission candidates have been talk-
ing a lot about lowering taxes and cutting spending in
the county, but we do not have a clue who they think
they are kidding.
The county gets most of its money from property taxes, and
with more than 50,000 of the county's estimated 250,000 resi-
dents being college students, there are a lot of people who are
not able to pay into the system. Not to mention that university-
owned land, some of the most valuable in the county, is tax ex-
empt. Cutting taxes will only force local government to spread
its resources even thinner.
And forget spending cuts. They may look good on paper, but
what service or program is going to suffer the consequences of
higher property-tax exemptions and a battered economy? The
sheriff's office or fire rescue? It might be nice to see a fewer sher-
iff's squad cars on the road, but nothing good can come from
cutting any more than that. Maybe we should get rid of the
quarter-cent sales tax that funds CHOICES, the county health
care program. Taking away health insurance from the working
poor would be a great way to save money.
Truth be told, there is not a lot of fat left to trim off the county
budget. Pretty much any cut would end in more unemployment
in the county or the loss of a valuable public service.
Sure, proposals from both the county and the city for new
taxes and fees like the fire assessment are hard to swallow,
but the budget shortfalls are very real and need to be made up
somehow. Any politician that says otherwise should be taken
with a grain of salt.


Dumbing Down


We are not surprised
the "Twilight"
saga is still elicit-
ing "Harry Potter" levels of
fanaticism out of women of
all ages, but we would be ly-
ing if we said it has not had a
profound impact on our faith
in humanity.
"Twilight" is the kind of
trope-filled trash that Harle-
quin romances are made of.
And even with all the poten-
tial excitement it could draw
from monster folklore, it is
probably the only vampire-
centric series of stories that
could put Bram Stoker to
sleep - if he could stop rolling
over in his grave.
Even though it's only a
movie, "Twilight" is symp-
tomatic of the increasingly
bland direction the media are
taking. Since "Harry Potter,"
everyone has been trying to
mystify the world with sim-
plistic fantasy stories. It was
bad enough when kids took
it too far and wished they


were actually students at
Hogwarts, but it is a tad more
outre when women fantasize
about their paramours be-
ing dead or sharing half their
DNA with a dog. Give us a
break.
There is a reason high-
school English teachers force
Hemingway and Faulkner
down students' throats. Their
novels are generally thought
-provoking and offer some
sort of commentary on the
world. They stand on their
own as works of art, unlike
"Twilight," which bolsters
its flimsy plot by becoming
a money machine that cross-
promotes with car companies
and fast food chains.
There is always room for
escapism, especially when it
comes to summer blockbust-
ers. But please refrain from
fooling yourself into thinking
"Twilight" is anything other
than a quick way to get money
out of "Harry Potter" tweens
as they enter adulthood.

Column

Government spending out of control


O n Tuesday, I attended the Gainesville Area Cham-
ber of Commerce Candidate forum for County
Commission candidates. About a hundred busi-
ness owners showed up to hear the vision of the six candi-
dates for Alachua County. One common theme prevailed:
the burden on local business from all levels of govern-
ment has to subside for the health of the local economy.
Increased taxation was shied away from by candidates
from both parties. Consistently, all the candidates said we
can either be dragged down by the national economic situ-
ation, or we find ways to improve upon it.
It should be apparent to all that after 18 months, President
Obama's economic plan is not working. Even some of the ap-
parent good news turns out to be bad. According to profes-
sor Arthur Laffer, a good portion of the corporate profits we
are seeing this year reflects a shift of profits into 2010 to avoid
the higher taxes that will come in 2011 with the expiration of
the Bush tax cuts.
What's more, Laffer predicts these higher tax rates will
provoke the second half of the dreaded double dip reces-
sion.
It's been about two full months since graduation at UF,
and many people are finding that the job market is nearly im-
penetrable. There is probably more money in Nancy Pelosi's
botox job than is being laid out to hire college grads new to
the local job market. At this point, prospects for most are dis-
couraging.
Likewise, the economic downturn has hit home for many
of us, as well. Some of our friends and family members are
in the same situation looking for stability in a tumultuous
economic environment.
The financial situation our country is facing is daunting.
The federal government is slowly backing us into uncontrol-
lable debt but simultaneously refusing to consider a change
in attitude when it comes to spending. Unfortunately, there
is only so far we can stretch the American dollar. We're cur-


S rently only sustaining things because
lenders around the world are still will-
ing to give the US money. What hap-
pens when that stops? We will hit the
brick wall of government debt.
In an incredible role reversal, at the
Bryan Griffin G20 summit this previous weekend,
letters@alligator org the US continued to advocate large
government spending programs; a
lone voice among European protests.
Admiral Mike Mullen of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff re-
cently warned that the increasing national debt is the biggest
threat to U.S. national security.
There is also nothing encouraging to see on the employ-
ment front. Hiring thousands of temporary census workers
does not count as real job growth. New jobs come from start-
up businesses or newer entrepreneurial enterprises. The
administration's policy track has created a climate that has
discouraged businesses from taking the risks of making new
investments.
I'm not claiming to be an economic expert nor do I have
the space in this column to extensively cover all of the issues
that need to be addressed. However, I do think we need to
recognize the ultimate importance of electing politicians this
November and in the future that have a different approach
to handling money. Having the government tax, borrow and
spend is not the formula for encouraging economic growth.
When the fat needs to be cut, we can't have politicians
in office that simply look to raise the debt cap. The current
administration has offered short-term solutions to long-term
problems and refused to recognize the long term conse-
quences of its spending habits.
Many economists are telling us we are nearing the point
where the government will hit a debt ceiling. What we need,
locally and nationally, are people willing to say enough is
enough.

Letters to the Editor
Candidate defends headquarter location
The Laboratory is a hub for some of
the most intellectual, artistic, creative and
dynamic minds I've ever encountered. I
spend my entire time debating, discussing
and theorizing with the many patrons that
come. It is my political training ground.
If the Alligator Editorial Board took a
little time to do some research, like real
journalists do, they'd discover that I've
spent very little time at The Laboratory in
recent weeks. Between working full time,
meeting with constituents, canvassing, at-
tending county and city commission meet-
ings, organizing my campaign team and
forming committees, I've only been able to
stop by the Lab to meet with party mem-
bers and reporters.


Larry and his wonderful staff at the Lab
have been my supporters from the very
beginning. I owe them everything, and
they've asked for nothing. Without them,
there would be no Ozzy Angulo Cam-
paign.
If the Editorial Board has any more
questions, you know where to find me.
Oswald Angulo
City Commision candidate




Owner objects to Lab being called a bar
In today's editorial, the 'editor' referred
to the Laboratory as a 'bar on University,'
in a seeming attempt to discredit Ozzie


Angulo. The Laboratory is a cafe. We do
not sell liquor, and the majority of my
business is food sales.
If you wish to use my establishment as
a tool for attack, please use it correctly.

Fire fee hurts property owners
Dear Mayor and City Commissioners,
This letter is to protest your raising a
new fire services assessment on citizens
already suffering from lowered incomes,
lowered property values and tough eco-
nomic times.


THURSDAY, JULY 1, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 7



In some properties, there are up to 50 per-
cent vacancies, even after lowering rents 20
percent and offering incentives. We all are
struggling to pay the new higher city taxes
and much higher insurance premiums.
We are only able to continue by cutting
our spending.
If we could just raise rents as you raise
taxes and special assessments all would be
fine.
But it is not possible, and all is not fine
with the Gainesville city government.
Overspending and lower revenue does
not justify raising special assessments. It
does require cutting back on all spending
by city government and citizens alike.

Guest column

Students should take time to celebrate 'America's hat' today


Celine Dion. Geddy Lee. Warren Moon's career.
Drake (the rapper, not the Nickelodeon TV star).
And hockey.
Honestly, what's not to like about Canada? It doesn't
go to war (unless the US tells it to), its main export is ma-
ple syrup (I may have just made that up) and Canadian
Football League teams only get three downs, plus their
fields are longer.
Thursday is Canada Day, and I'll be showing pride for
"America's hat" by painting myself red, white and maple
syrup.
While most of us know that you can order Chinese
food - from China - quicker than you can get an am-
bulance in Canada, what else is important to know about
the nation that burned Washington, D.C., to the ground
in the War of 1812?
Admittedly, Canada is America's joke. Canada is the
Jan Brady to America's Marcia.
Everybody always talks about Marcia, but no one no-
tices Jan.
Not to mention the fact Canada has plagued millions
of teenage girls with the most painful disease since gonor-
rhea - Bieberitis.
Canada may be pacifists, but if they don't get a hold of
the 16-going-on-12-year-old, vocally-challenged star, then
there's going to be a musical war of Tupac vs. Notorious
B.I.G. proportions.


Andrew Pantazi Then there's Canada's perpetual
Speaking Out whining minority: the Quebecois.
All the maddening Canucks have
to do is complain, and the rest of
Canada gives in to them.
Sound like another minority that is constantly com-
plaining in America? (Yes, I'm talking about the politi-
cally correct, far-left, anti-everything, we-don't-watch-
South-Park idiots.)
And UF, the beacon of cultural education and learning
about the world, does a bang-up job of teaching Gators
about America's neighbor.
The only regularly offered classes you can take at UF
about Canada are Canadian politics and geography of the
United States and Canada. Neither of those are offered
this fall.
But don't worry, just because Canada is the second
largest nation in the world in land mass and our neighbor
doesn't mean we should know anything about it.
We just need to know how to make funny jokes about
the globally insignificant allies of everyone. And we get
that knowledge by listening to Weird Al's "Canadian
Idiot."
Why should college graduates even know how many
provinces Canada has (10 provinces, three territories) or
when they earned complete independence from England


(it was 1982)?
All that's important to know is that Sidney Crosby stole
a gold medal from the USA. And that's un-American.
But if you want an excuse to light off fireworks a few
days early, then you need to know at least a few things
about Canada Day.
Canada doesn't have a real national anthem. They
have three official versions of "0 Canada," but whenever
they feel like it, they change it again. It can be made more
militaristic or casual depending on the setting. So instead
of singing the official "0 Canada," make up your own lyr-
ics.
If you're feeling patriotic, try watching the Toronto
Blue Jays, because believe it or not Canada has been at
war with America since 1977, when the Jays began play-
ing in Major League Baseball.
If you want to defend American pride, then pray Can-
ada doesn't take over America's game when the Blue Jays
take on the Cleveland Indians.
Canada Day symbolizes the start of the Canadian Foot-
ball League. How genius is that?
Why don't we start the NFL on the Fourth of July? It
would definitely make me feel a lot more American. But
since we don't have any good, hard-hitting American
football on the Fourth of July, watch the CFL and appreci-
ate its hose-headed, yet challenging demeanor.

Tax will fund health care reform

TAN, from page 1 M "\ I - 7/

"I hope there is more business,
but I don't anticipate there will be,"
Nazzaro said.
She thinks most people that pre-
fer UV tanning will stick with it. Her
business hasn't seen any direct effect
as of now.
Bill Rys, tax counsel for the Na-

duce business.
"Higher taxes mean less invest-
ment, reduced growth and fewer
customers - hardly the prescrip-
tion for future job growth our coun-
try needs," Rys said.
Allison DeGroat, a UF biology
junior, said the positives of the new
tanning tax outweigh the negatives.
"I believe this newly enforced
taxation will cause some tanning-
bed clients to limit their tanning
frequency, which will decrease their
chances of developing skin cancer,"
DeGroat said.
DeGroat said she thinks being
tan makes her look better, healthier
and more vibrant, but still thinks the
new tax is fair.

said, informs participants about cam-

tours took place during Summer A,
and two more are planned for Sum-
mer B.
The tours have attracted more fac-
ulty and alumni than students so far,
Howard said.
The Creative B events aren't focused
toward age-specific groups, rather the
events are intended to bring in people
with similar interests, he said.
Creative B is also hosting events
like the video gaming tournament,
which will be sponsored by the Digital
Worlds Institute at the Old Norman
Gym July 22 and 23.
"The gaming tournament will
get people who are gamers, whether
they're freshmen or seniors," he said.
Creative B is also offering three
interdisciplinary courses. The first is
Interactive Storytelling, a three-credit
course offered by the Digital Worlds


Institute. The second is America at
Work: Get a Job, a one-credit course
that coincides with a summer exhibit
at the Harn Museum of Art. The third
is Performance and Engagement, a
three-credit course with the School of
Theatre and Dance about how people
make performances in everyday life,
not just on stage.
"The gaming tournament will
get people who are gamers,
whether they're freshmen or
seniors."
Andy Howard
spokesman for the College of Fine
Arts

UF is growing, and Creative B
should help students see how science
and art can meet, Howard said.
"Part of the conversation is bring-
ing artists and scholars from across
campus to study in an interdisciplin-
ary context," he said.

"eclectic" atmosphere prefer Coffee Culture,
she said.
Wireless Internet put Coffee Culture on
the cutting edge when the store first offered it

added.
"I don't feel threatened at all," she said.
"We built a foundation, and the people who
come to us are going to continue to come to
us."


Anthony Rue, who owns Volta Coffee, Tea
& Chocolate in downtown Gainesville, said he
thinks the move will hurt Starbucks because
they won't serve customers as quickly. Volta
has more room for people to lounge than Star-
bucks does, so if people camp out at Starbucks,
there won't be a place to sit, he said.
Kristin Allukian, an English graduate stu-
dent at UF and a regular Starbucks customer,
said Starbucks offers benefits that some of the
locally-owned shops don't. Because Starbucks
operates on such a large scale, they aren't as


dependent on customer turnover, she said.
"I feel like I could stay here all day and
have free refills and unlimited parking, and
nobody would notice," she said.
Wesley Kokomoor, a UF nu-
On clear engineering graduate stu-
Campus dent, said he has long accessed
Internet at Starbucks by buying
gift cards for items he would have ordered
anyway. Previously, customers who bought a
gift card for more than $5 could get online for
two hours.


Starbucks is simply catching up to the rest
of the industry and the rest of the world, UF
Economics Chair Jonathan Hamilton said.
Starbucks has offered free wireless in Europe
for years, he said.
The decision to offer free Internet in the
United States could be a response to McDon-
ald's attempt to capture some of the coffee
market, he said.
McDonald's launched its McCafe cam-
paign in May of 2009, and began to offer free
wireless Internet in January of this year.

A helpful guide on how to not piss off your bartenders


By THOMAS PLEVIK
avenue contributing writer

Gainesville is crammed with bars,
and this Fourth of July weekend you
will no doubt encounter throngs of
sloppy drunks ready to join you in
the never-endingwar against joyless,
American sobriety.
It's a free world, and you can run
with any crowd you like. But remem-
ber, no matter where you go or who
you choose to slop with, in every bar
you will run into the one omnipotent,
super force: the bartender.
Out of all the "friends" you could
possibly make during the evening,
bartenders are (obviously) the most
helpful.
To help you stay the friendly, well-
liked mini-alcoholicthatyou are, here
are five things you can do to avoid
annoying that singular, supreme god
of drinks.

1. Know what you want before you
order:
Think of a bartender as the main-
tenance person for a well-oiled ma-
chine.
If your head is so full of non-al-
cohol-related garbage that you can't


even cough up the words to place
your order when the time comes,
you're just slowing down the entire
process and keeping good people
from getting (watered-down) drinks.

2. Keep your money in your hand
and let your eyes do the talking:
Bartenders get your drinks faster
if you let them know you mean busi-
ness.
Remember that your cash can
shout down any bartender better
than your can.
"Don't wave me down. We're sell-
ing drinks, not hawking fat backs,"
Joel Bryant, the resident spirit sling-
er at University Club and six-year vet-
eran of the business, said.
"Don't call my name, and please
have money in your hands because
all we ever see is your money," Bry-
ant said.
Also, eye contact and a friendly
smile go a longway in lettingthe bar-
tender know you are not a pompous
jerk.
Former bartender Kim Wallace
from the 2nd Street Speakeasy
agrees that anyone waving his or her
arms and acting impatient is goingto
wait much longer.


3. Be aware of your surroundings:
You look like an idiot when you
ask what beers are on tap when the
handles are a foot away from your
face.
Knowing where to stand will help
the bartender serve easier, and help
you both avoid needless confusion.
"Stay in front of the well," Bryant
said. "It's much easier to get to you,

be back there in a
minute."
When the
bar starts to fill
with people,keep
drinks simple
- nothing more
complicated than a two-mix cocktail,
and the bartender will know you're
working for them and not against
them.
A bar is like an altar for many bar-
tenders.
If you think you're an alcoholic an-
gel in a heaven of your own drunken
bliss, then the bartender is God, and
he wants you to respect his space.

4. Acting sloppy guarantees your
next visit will be a bummer:


Going to the bathroom after a
couple of hours of sipping on the
sauce can be a lot like walking off a
carnival ride. There is a lot of uneasy
swaying, and mostly you just want
something solid to sit on. Somehow,
though, you make it to the next at-
traction.
If you can resist the urge to puke
in public and keep your overflowing
personalityto a minimum, you'll have
earned the respect and gratitude of
the bartender.
Clean up after yourself a little,
and the bartender will have that
much more time to pour you a drink.
Keep your friends close. If you're
too sloshed to head out the door at
closing time you become the bar's
problem, and that can keep every-
one late.
It's something you can be sure
the bartender won't forget the next
time you walk up to his or her bar.

5. You will never flirt your way to a
free drink:
Unless you are sucking the last
drops of alcohol left on planet Earth,
your kiss is never worth the price of
a drink.
Give it up, because it's a bartend-


er's job to deal with a new booze
hound every 30 seconds and every
one of them wants to drink for free.
Everyone on stage or behind the
bar is 50 percent better looking, ac-
cording to the 86 rules of Boozing.
They know it, and if you try to flirt up
a free martini they are probably go-
ing to flirt a 30 percent tip right out
of your pocket book.
Bartending is an equal gender of-
fender: women bartenders deal with
obnoxious flirts as much as their
male counterparts.
Bryant scoffs at the idea of allow-
ing anyone a free drink just because
they look good in a dress shirt.
Bryant is steadfast in his pay-as-
you-partake policy.
"It gets fierce in here," said Bry-
ant. "Be a man in a gay bar and be a
bartender. Girls have it easy because
men are fierce."
Moments later, a University Club
regular teasingly offers Bryant pic-
tures of his genitals in exchange for
a tumbler of whiskey.
"You see this shit," laughs Bryant,
ignoring the man's cries for more
whiskey.
"This is the shit I have to deal
with. Don't ever be this guy!"

Fourth of July brings patriotism to drinking, celebrating


Themed drinks and Jell-O shots can bring a party to life r--


By RICHARD STEHLI
avenue writer

Fireworks, patriotism and guns!
It's the Fourth of July, and the best
way to enjoy the aforementioned
Americana is with a drink in your
hand.
It shouldn't surprise anyone that
my weapon of choice is a frosty
beer. I prefer the warmth provid-
ed by a cold brew over the hassle
of mixing colorful drinks anyday.
However, the fourth of july affords
special circumstances, and as your
loyal alcohol connoisseur, I'd like to
impart some variations on a theme
that might just kick that barbecue
into party overdrive.
First, you want to be sure the
beer you're drinking is representa-
tive of the glorious U.S. of A, and
that you're not lining some Euro-
pean fat cat's pockets.
Yuengling is America's oldest
brewery, founded in 1829, and
Sam Adams is, by its name alone,
the brewer and the patriot.
Anchor Steam was born and
raised in the USA and comes from
one of America's first successful
microbreweries, which also makes
Anchor Liberty Ale.
Here's a word of warning, my
patriot friends: Budweiser, Miller
and Coors are all at least partially
owned by foreign companies.
Another good idea for your Inde-
pendence Day drinking is layered
drinks. With a bit of technique, you
can pour layers of red, white and
blue liquors or mixers.
To do this, try to determine the
density of your alcohols. If you're

short a hydrometer, you can always
experiment until you figure it out.
Pour your heaviest drink into the
bottom of a glass and wait a min-
ute or so for it to settle.
Carefully pouring over the back
of a spoon to protect the bottom
layer, float your next heaviest liquor
on top.
Once the drink settles, pour your
third the same way. It might take
some practice, but it will be worth


it in the end. Worst-case scenario,
line up a shot of each for a more
horizontal and less difficult tricolor
effect.
For those without steady hands
or patience, it's easier to layer red,
white and blue Jell-O shots. Just mix
and cool the colors one at a time,
adding them on top as you go.
For the white layer, consider a
mix of cream, sugar, vanilla, coco-
nut rum and gelatin for extra flavor


and texture.
Whether you celebrate our na-
tion's birth with beer, liquor, Jell-
0 shots or even soft drinks, make
sure you exercise caution around
explosives, campfires and spar-
klers. You know what they say: "It's
all fun and games until someone
loses an eye or a testicle."

The Second Amendment: a love storv (with 2uns)


By ALEX ORLANDO
avenue writer

I know you've been waiting for
it: the weekend of booze, fireworks
and watermelon in celebration of our
country that looms at the end of this
first week of Summer B.
But before you do all that gal-
livanting at the possible expense
of a friend's fiery death, let's take
a minute to look back at one of the
amendments our country was built
on and how it's standing today.
I'm going conservative as all get
out on this one, but I'm talking about
the Second Amendment.
You should reflect on the factthat
until Monday of this week, your lo-
cal government could take that right
away from you.
If you've been following any kind
of news source this week, you'd
know that the Supreme Court struck
down Chicago's handgun ban and
enforced the Second Amendment
over all future jurisdiction.
As a college student, I feel like I'm
supposed to be a pretentious liberal
punk and take Chicago's side. On the
other hand, being a kid from North
Florida who hangs out in the boon-
docks that surrounds Gainesville, I
feel like I should side with the court's
decision.
Maybe say something along the


lines of, "Hell yeah, we should bear
our arms! What if that evil Obama
starts infringin' on our rights, and we
gotta start a militia?"
I'll be up-front with you guys. I
stand by the Second Amendment,
but not for any of that ultra-aggres-
sive, conservative malarkey. Guns
are just so damn fun to shoot.
And being a guy from Alachua -
or an ACR as you out-of-towners love
to call us - I had the opportunity last
weekend to drive out to my buddy's
farm and blast my Second Amend-
ment enthusiasm through all kinds
of targets.
About five of my closest friends
and I set up under a gazebo at the
edge of his 100-acre property with
seven guns, four targets and enough
ammo to sink a small boat.
When it was my turn to shoot, I
grabbed my friend's .44 Magnum
that I had been eyeing all day.
Yes, the one from "Dirty Harry"
that will "blow your head clean off."
And being the pun-filled jerk that
I am, I feel it is my duty to add that it
really did make my day.
All stupidity aside, aiming that
hand-cannon around the pasture, I
couldn't help but notice the sense of
power that coursed through me.
For the rest of this story, visit al-
ligator. org/thea venue.

Fanfares and Fireworks show returns to Flavet Field


* THE EVENT WAS CANCELED IN 2009
DUE TO LACK OF FUNDING.

By ERIN RAUCH
avenue writer

Gainesville's only annual fireworks display is
bursting back to life with help from local spon-
sors.
Fanfares and Fireworks was canceled in
2009 due to a lack of funding. UF and the state
legislature cut the budget for the event, accord-
ingto a press release.
"It has become a tradition for many families,


so they were very disappointed," Sue Wagner, di-
rector of communications at WUFT-TV/DT, said.
The 20-year tradition recommences Saturday,
starting at 7 p.m. at the UF bandshell at Flavet
Field. Wagner said the event is scheduled on the
third so families can participate in other Indepen-
dence Day events.
Conchita Ruiz-Topinka, spokeswoman for
AvMed Health Plans, said the not-for-profit or-
ganization decided to step in when it heard the
event was in trouble financially.
"We like to get involved in the communities
and the markets that we serve," Ruiz-Topinka
said. "We have a significant presence in


Gainesville with about 350 employees."
The annual Independence Day celebration
is sponsored by AvMed Health Plans, UF, the
University Athletic Association and the City of
Gainesville.
"Traditionally, it's been a great event," said
Mike Hill, associate athletics director. "We are
just proud to play a small part of this as WUFT
relaunches it."
The event is free and open to the public. Wag-
ner said families and students come and picnic
in the grass, listen to music and watch the fire-
works.
Coolers are allowed at the event but may be


subject to search by the University Police Depart-
ment. Concessions will be available for purchase.
No dogs, sparklers or alcohol are allowed at the
event.
Attendees can listen to live music performed
bythe 6th Street Rhythm and Blues Review, Hart-
ley Leacock and the Collective Format Band and
the Gainesville Community Band. The Gainesville
Community Band will play for an hour throughout
the fireworks display.
The fireworks display is presented by Skylight-
ers of Florida and will begin at 9:40 p.m., accord-
ing to a press release. UPD estimates between
15,000 and 20,000 people will attend.

Rock band Rooney to make tour stop in Gainesville


By ALISHA KINMAN
avenue writer


Famed West coast rock band
Rooney is coming to Gainesville.
The band, perhaps best known for
the songs "I'm Shakin'" and "Blue-
side" in addition to its guest appear-
ance on "The O.C.," will be stopping
in Gainesville on July 8 to perform at
Common Grounds and promote its
new album, "Eureka."
After recently splitting with its
record label, the four-man band re-
leased its third full-length album on
June 8.
Ned Brower, Rooney's drummer
and vocalist, spoke with me about its
new album and coast-to-coast tour.


Brower said the idea for the title of
the CD is based on California's state
seal, where it says "eureka" across
the top of the emblem. To go with
the title, the album cover resembles
the state seal but with the four band-
mates posing in the background.
In 1999, the band released its
first CD, "Rooney," that also showed
off its California pride by designing
the album cover to resemble Califor-
nia's state flag. Other CD releases by
Rooneyinclude "Callingthe World," in
2007, and "Wild One EP," in 2009.
But, unlike Rooney's previous al-
bums, "Eureka" was produced after
discontinuing its label contract with
Geffen/Interscope Records.
Splitting away from the label


hasn't taken away from the produc-
tion or creativity of the CD, Brower
said. If anything, the sounds in this
album are coming from the band
more literally.
"Eureka" is the first album to be
produced under Rooney's personal
label, California Dreamin' Records.
"You can hear the individual per-
formances and the voices better than
before," Brower said.
When arranging the lyrics and
songs, the band has made an effort
to work as a group and take chances
on new music styles.
The music is more sophisticated
in "Eureka," Brower said. Some of
the songs have a '70s jazz-rock feel
while others give off a psychedelic


Generally, Robert Schwartzman,
the lead vocalist, writes the songs
in his head, and the band arranges
the music together. On occasion, the
other three members, Ned Brower,
Taylor Locke and Louie Stevens, will
take turns brainstorming lyrics.
Brower said it takes around two
days to record each song.
Recently, Rooney's headlining
single off "Eureka," "I Can't Get
Enough," made VH1's Top 20 Count-
down premiere list online.
"The music video is unlike any-
thing before," Brower said. "There's
stunt rollerskating, animation and
live action."
Rooneyfan or not, the splits in roll-


erskates, back-up dancers dressed in
1970s flare and vibrant neon colors
that resemble the late '60s are sure
to grab viewer's attention.
On June 16, Rooney kicked off its
tour in San Diego, Calif. to promote
"Eureka" and will finish in Austin,
Texas, in August.
If a show is coming up soon, re-
hearsals are taken seriously, Brower
said. But, before each performance,
Rooney gets ready to perform by vo-
cally warming up and doing a cheer
before going on stage.
With the upcoming Gainesville
show a week away, I was curious to
know what the West Coast natives
knew about the town.
"Tom Petty," Brower said.

Dave's ideal Fourth


of July extravaganza


Tr e Fourth of July. It's possibly the
Greatest holiday that has ever
existed. Some guys signed a
piece of paper that brought the United
States of America into existence, and
more than two centuries later we com-
memorate that day in the most Ameri-
can way: grilling getting belligerently
drunk and watching things explode. I
love July Fourth because I'm a big fan
of America. It's pretty much the best
country I've ever lived in.
This is the country that gave the
world sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, and
I plan on showing how much I appreci-
ate it by going all out this Sunday. I've
decided to share some of my plans
with you because I'm sure there are
some of you out there who are inter-
ested in knowing what I'll be up to (or,
bored in class).
First, I'll be replacingall the chicken
at my barbecue with bald eagle meat.
What better way to enjoy America then
tasting the succulent flesh of our na-
tional bird? Yes, you party pooper, I
know it's illegal to do that, because it's
an endangered species.
To that, I ask: Where is your Ameri-
can spirit? You think the Boston Tea
Party was legal? What if the Redcoats
said they were an endangered spe-
cies? We'd all be drinkingtea at 4 p.m.
every day instead of beer and plac-


ing extra u's in
words where
we don't need
them. (One
special tip for
cooking bald
eagle: Throw
Dave Johnson some olive
Columnist branches on
the grill with it.
You thought that bird was majestic to
look at? One bite of an eagle wing and
that flavor will make you stand up and
salute Old Glory)
To further spice up my Fourth, I'm
breaking out the big guns - literally.
As part of my fireworks extravaganza,
I've refurbished an actual cannon that
was used in the Revolutionary War
and plan on firing it along University
Avenue (weather permitting).
I love the Fourth of July because
we get to smack talk the British all we
want. Hey, England! You suck at soc-
cer, just like you suck at maintaining
sovereignty over your colonies!
I'd like to wrap up this week's col-
umn by giving a special shout out to
the new freshmen starting Summer B
this week: Hey guys, what's up? Quick
tip: There is no secret pool on the roof
of your dorm. You know where there is
a pool, though? My house. I'm over 21,
too. Hit me up on Facebook, ladies.

Young ready to contribute


di 41" 0 q-ma -ua maem M qtm


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Staff Writer
achiang@alligator org

Patric Young's classes
started on Monday, but he
isn't in Gainesville yet.
The incoming Gators bas-
ketball freshman has a good
excuse. Young won't arrive to
campus until today because
he has been in San Antonio
playing for the USA Men's
Basketball U-18 National
Team. The squad beat Brazil
81-78 on Wednesday to win
the gold medal.
"I definitely was humbled
a little bit coming out here to
understand how the game
is going to be played at the
next level," Young said. "It's
a lot more physical and the
referees are going to let you
play a lot more and coaches
expect so much more from
you as far as being on time
and taking notes during film
sessions."
The rapid development
of the 6-foot-9-inch low-
post presence will be vital to
Florida this season. Young, a
five-star recruit and the fifth-
ranked center in the 2010
recruiting class according to
Rivals, is expected to provide
a solid option at both the
power forward and center


positions right away.
"I think coach Donovan is
going to have me come onto
the team as a freshman and
have an immediate role on
the team," he said. "I think
I'll come in as a role player
looking to rebound a lot. I'm
banking on maybe (my soph-
omore season) will be my
year to shine."
"I think we have all the
talent to make it that
far and I think I'll play
a big role in helping us
get there."
Patric Young
UF basketball commitment

Not known as a scorer,
Young averaged 14.2 points
per game to go along with
12.4 rebounds and 3.2 blocks
as a senior.
The Jacksonville native
expects to provide defense
and help on the boards with
guards Erving Walker and
Kenny Boynton taking care
of the scoring. Many are
looking at Young to join ris-
ing sophomore Erik Murphy
as the two primary frontcourt
reserves.
"(Young is) a guy that is a
very aggressive player, he's
very physical," UF coach


Billy Donovan said. "I think
his offense will grow and get
better as time goes on, but I
think the one thing he brings
to our team right away is
great energy and passion and
a physical presence."
The person who is respon-
sible for Young's decision to
come to UF is not with the
Gators anymore. According
to Young, former UF assistant
and new VCU head coach
Shaka Smart is the one who
convinced the recruit that
Gainesville was the place he
would most flourish in. But
once he committed, he didn't
want to be one of those play-
ers to change his mind, so he
never second-guessed his de-
cision after Smart left.
Young has high expec-
tations when he steps onto
campus today. He isn't shy
about predicting where the
Gators, which are returning
their entire starting five, will
end up.
"It's funny because (Mar-
reese) Speights actually
tweeted that the Gators are
going to be in the Final Four
this year," he said. "I think
we have all the talent to make
it that far and I think I'll play
a big role in helping us get
there."


Busy month lands Gators six verbal cor

UF now has 10 commitments for 2011 recruiting class


By TOM GREEN
Alligator Writer
tgreen@alligator org


National Signing Day may be seven
months away, but the Gators took strides
during the month of June toward building
another strong football recruiting class.
After coming into June with just four
commitments, Florida received solid verbals
from six prospects last month to push the
2011 recruiting class to a total of 10 commit-
ments so far.
The six commitments in June are more
than any other Southeastern Conference
school and in-state rivals UM and FSU.
Among the verbal commitments the
Gators received last month, two came from


four-star recruits and three came from three-
star recruits, as rated by Rivals.
Florida started the month slow on the
recruiting trail, not landing a commitment
until nearly two weeks in when Lakeland's
four-star wide receiver Javares McRoy de-
committed from Texas Tech, where he origi-
nally committed with his older brother Ben-
jamin - a three-star athlete.
"I just thought about where I really
wanted to go and what best fit me and my
running style, and UF fits my style," McRoy
told The Lakeland Ledger last month.
McRoy became the Gators' first skill posi-
tion commitment of the 2011 class and the
first Lakeland prospect to commit to UF
since 2007, when the Gators signed Mike
and Maurkice Pouncey, Ahmad Black and


Chris Rainey.
After McRoy's commitment to the Gators,
the ball kept rolling along the recruiting trail
and five more prospects verbally pledged to
play for UF in 2011.
On June 17, three-star fullback, Hunter
Joyer, accepted a scholarship
offer from Florida after his
showing at coach Urban Mey-
- er's football camp that week.
Footba ll The 6-foot, 245-pound Joy-
er is rated No. 1 overall at his
position by Rivals and ran for 1,030 yards
and 10 touchdowns for Tampa Catholic in
2008.
His commitment is peculiar, considering
how little Meyer has used fullbacks dur-
ing his tenure at Florida, but could point to


nmitments
the Gators deploying the I-formation more
in the coming years with quarterback John
Brantley under center.
Four days after Joyer gave his verbal to
the Gators, they landed two more recruits in
Tommy Jordan, an offensive lineman from
Ridgefield, Conn., and Plantation linebacker
Ryan Shazier.
Jordan is a three-star nose guard prospect
who committed to Florida after visiting the
football camp last month.
Shazier, the other four-star prospect the
team landed in June, recorded 87 tackles and
19 sacks as a junior last year for the Colo-
nels.
The linebacker, who is rated as the ninth-
best at his position by Rivals, visited the
school with his family last month and com-
mitted to the Gators shortly thereafter.

..Three-star WR Story committed to play for U over 22 other schools








Three-star WR Story committed to play for UF over 22 other schools


RECRUIT, from page 21


According to The Gainesville Sun, Shazi-
er said Meyer was "excited" by his commit-
ment and thanked him for it.
Florida's June recruiting surge came
to a climax on Monday when it gained its
fifth and sixth verbal commitments of the
month.
Nature Coast wide receiver Ja'Juan Story
gave his verbal to UF on Monday, shunning
scholarship offers from at least 22 schools,
including five other SEC schools and UF's


in-state rivals FSU and UM.
Story, who joins McRoy as the Gators'
only two wide receiver commitments thus
far for 2011, brings even more speed to Mey-
er's offense, as he runs a 4.4 40-yard dash,
according to Rivals.
As a junior, Story caught 13 passes for 423
yards and three touchdowns while rushing
for 265 yards and two scores on 27 carries. He
also recorded 22 tackles and one sack while
playing defensive back for the Sharks.
Story could play on either side of the
ball for the Gators by the time 2011 comes


around, but will be playing quarterback at
Nature Coast this coming season as a se-
nior.
The same day Story
committed to Florida, the
Gators also landed their
tenth recruit for 2011 - one
that wasn't even on their
radar at the beginning of
ory the month.
Kicker Kyle Christy of
Brownsburg, Ind., committed to UF after re-
ceiving an offer Monday night.


Christy wasn't recruited by UF until he
attended the team's kicking camp that took
place from June 21-23.
"I talked to Urban Meyer and he said
they actually had three or four guys there
specifically just to look at them, and I wasn't
one of those guys," Christy said. "But I stole
the show."
Christy said he impressed coaches with
his punting and called them Monday night.
It was then they decided to offer him a schol-
arship, which he quickly accepted over an
offer from LSU.

THURSDAY, JULY 1, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 23


Decision to move CWS from Rosenblatt Stadium a foolish one


t is a sad day when you lose something
that has been woven into a city's iden-
tity.
No, I am not talking about the possibil-
ity of LeBron James walking away from
the Cleveland Cavaliers.
This is about something even more
ingrained into the prototypical idea of
American sports. This is about something
that has been a staple in our country for
61 years.
The book on Rosenblatt Stadium, home
of the College World Series, was officially
closed after South Carolina won the CWS
title on a walk-off hit Tuesday.
The ballpark that sits on a hill in Oma-
ha, Neb., will soon be demolished in order
to make way for a new state-of-the-art fa-
cility.
TD Ameritrade Park Omaha, a beauti-
ful 24,000-seat stadium that will become
the new home of the CWS, is being built
just three miles north of Rosenblatt.
Corporate executives are going to love
the comfortable venue loaded with 30 lux-
ury suites and 1,000 club seats, but base-
ball fans won't.
This move is a travesty.
Unlike Rosenblatt, which is on the south


side of Omaha in the middle of an empty
field next to sports bars and famous eating
spots, Ameritrade Park will be located in
the downtown area.
When I made the trip to cover the CWS
a couple of weeks ago, I saw what every-
body was talking about. It felt like what
baseball is supposed to feel like.
Tailgaters surrounded the stadium
and fans stood in lines for hours just for a
chance at tickets to catch a glimpse of the
action.
If you didn't know, college baseball
doesn't usually draw the biggest crowd.
But in Omaha, it does.
Sure, Ameritrade Park will be in that
same city, but things won't be the same.
As I drove by the semi-built stadium, I
couldn't help but notice the gigantic shad-
ows projected onto Ameritrade Park by the
sky-rise buildings looming over it. These
money-making landmarks mark the end
of tailgating alongside the stadium and the
famous eating spots like Zesto's Drive-in,
a legendary burger and milkshake joint lo-
cated next to Rosenblatt which makes 80 to
90 percent of its profit during the CWS.
This is just one of the factors that played
into the fans' decision to boo Omaha May-

or Jim Suttle at the
opening ceremonies.
But let's just think
about the logistics of
this move.
The Omaha Royals,
Anthony Chiang a minor league affili-
Chiang Reaction ate of the Kansas City
achiang@alligatororg Royals, call Rosenb-
latt their home, too.
But they aren't following the CWS to
Ameritrade Park because they thought it
would be too big for them. Instead, anoth-
er stadium is being built for the Royals.
That's right, two baseball stadiums
within 20 minutes of each other are under
construction simultaneously. They are ex-
pected to cost $154 million combined.
None of this makes any sense.
There is something to be said about the
feel of an old ballpark full of tradition that
witnessed 61 years full of special CWS mo-
ments, Robin Ventura's NCAA-record 58
game hitting streak come to an end and
thousands upon thousands of fans travel to
a part of Omaha that is not often visited if it
isn't for the CWS.
The ballpark was not even in bad shape.
I had the opportunity to walk around the


stadium multiple times and sit in the crowd
to watch some of the games, and everything
was in good condition by my standards.
Rosenblatt looked as pretty as ever. It
seemed to be freshly painted and all of the
facilities were up to the times.
I know the CWS can't be played in Rosen-
blatt forever, but it just doesn't seem like
their is a reason to change sites right now.
What is going to happen to the nearby
restaurant owners which wait all year for
the CWS to come around to make their prof-
its? What is going to happen to the house
next to Rosenblatt whose residents earn
over a $1,000 a year from parking cars in
their yard?
A lot of people are going to feel the ef-
fects of this loss, not only baseball fans.
But once the old ballpark is demolished,
there is no looking back.
Instead, the adjacent Henry Doorly
Zoo, one of the top zoos in the country,
will take control of the sacred land once
the ballpark is knocked down. A little
league replica of Rosenblatt will be built
on the site, too.
This mini version of the stadium seems
fitting with all of the childish politics that
went into this decision.

You Decide. 10 THURSDAY, JULY 1, 2010 Indoor tanning tL tax starts today 0 ABOUT 10 PERCENT OF AMERICANS TAN INDOORS EACH YEAR. MICHAELA TRIMBLE Alligator Contributing Writer A 10 percent tax will be added to indoor tanning bills beginning today. The tax is part of the health care reform President Obama signed into law in March. The tax will be placed on electronic products that require one or more ultraviolet lamps with wavelengths between 200 and 400 nanometers, according to Internal Revenue Service guidelines. The tax is expected to produce $2.7 billion by 2019, according to the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation. This money will fund the new health care reform package and requires tanning salons to collect and report the tax to the government each quarter. The tanning tax replaced the 5 percent "Botax" on cosmetic surgery after complaints from medical and dermatological associations. John Overstreet, spokesman for the Indoor Tanning Association, said the tax is an intrusion by the government into Americans' lives. "You better watch. Next you know they will go down to Daytona and put a tax on lying in the sun," Overstreet said. According to Overstreet, businesses are already on the edge as is. "You can't raise product by 10 percent and not have an effect," Overstreet said. "Those that are already struggling will hurt, no question about it." The tax will affect an estimated 18,000 small businesses nationwide including retail, manufacturing and distribution businesses, as well as the 10 percent of Americans who tan indoors each year, according to the ITA.

Although the Starbucks on UF's campus offers free wireless Internet to students through the university's network, off-campus franchises have charged $3.99 for two hours of access. Free Wi-Fi or not, Brittany Loftus, an education graduate student at UF, said she does not plan to become a regular Starbucks customer. Loftus said Coffee Culture on Northwest 13th Street has been her favorite study spot for the past two years. "I come here because it's a local business, and I would rather support a local business than support a national chain," she said. In the fall, Starbucks will also offer in-store access to The Wall Street Journal, but that won't entice Loftus to make the switch. The Wall Street Journal is a good newspaper, but there are plenty of other free newspapers online, she said. "I would rather support a local business than support a national chain." Brittany Loftus UF graduate student Coffee Culture owner Alisa Rowe Kenney said she struggled to compete with Starbucks when she opened her first store in 2003. But she, like other coffee shop owners, found a niche.

GatorVision relocates By HOLLY KANE Alligator Contributing Writer Come August, journalism students will have another reason to be familiar with their college besides grades. The University Athletic Association is partnering with the College of Journalism and Communications by moving its GatorVision facility into Weimer Hall. The new facility will include editing and office spaces that could offer the college's broadcasting students work experience and resume fillers, said Jerry Wetzel, director of electronic media for UAA. GatorVision, the radio and television arm of the athletic department, produces TV shows, oversees GatorZone.com and streams live sports-related events online. "It creates synergy between the UAA and the college, which is going to be a positive move for getting students involved in sports broadcasting," Wetzel said. GatorVision had been looking for a better office space and learning environment for a number of years, Wetzel said, before considering Weimer Hall. "It just made sense," he said. GatorVisionwill focus onthe introduction of high-definition, non-linear and tapeless technologies into the new space so students are better able to keep up with the industry. "This collaboration dramatically enhances our ability to deliver high quality multimedia productions for Gator athletics, while also serving as a significant educational opportunity for University of On Florida students," said Jeremy Campus Foley, director of athletics, in a press release. UAA will staff office spaces and editing areas where Wetzel said mass communication students can learn about editing, reporting and creating broadcast stories, which can be used for building their resumes. UAA will foot the $450,000-bill to cover integration and move-in, set to be complete by Aug. 15, although Wetzel is unsure when it will be open for use. "It depends on when we get the furniture in." he said. TI-URSDAY, JULY 1, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 3 UF RESEARCH Lightning researchers get $9.8-million grant By ALEXANDER KLAUSN ER Alligator Contributing Writer Heavy rains and lightning storms are common in Gainesville during summer. That's convenient for UF lightning researchers, who recently received a $9.8-million federal grant to hire graduate and undergraduate students, as well as purchase new equipment. "It's pretty exciting," said Vladimir Rakov, professor of electrical and computer engineering at UF. "Funding for lightning research is usually pretty low." Most grants for lightning research are given following lightning-related disasters like the lightning strike of Apollo 12 in the 1960s, he said. However, no such disasters have occurred recently, he said. The grant went into effect June 1, and seven UF graduate and undergraduate students have already been hired. The grant's purpose is to study how lightning makes its way from the cloud to the ground, and how it selects where it will strike, he said. Researchers need the as4 -ly Only 6 Blocks from UF Campust 352.338.7467 Iu EDff UOM G 9 @ sistance of several high-speed cameras to capture pictures of strikes.

Vladimir Rakov professor of electrical and computer engineering at UF purchase two or three more, he said. The new cameras will be able to film at 3 million frames per second and will be used at the research facility at Camp Blanding, where researchers have the capability to artificially trigger lightning. To trigger the lightning, researchers connect a wire to a rocket and launch it at a thundercloud. When a cloud is ready to discharge a bolt of lightning, they fire the rocket toward the cloud. The rocket creates a stronger electrical field near the cloud, which triggers a lightning strike to where the wire is grounded. $2 OFF Any Menu Item rL(with coupon) Sandwiches -Smoothies P384-9497 2 w.

4, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, JULY 1, 2010 Senators approve 4 nominees By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN Alligator Writer Student Body President Ashton Charles has finished her nominations for the last empty Student Government cabinet seats. Senators unanimously approved the four remaining nominees during Tuesday's meeting after interviewing them, some via speakerphone, about their experience and ideas for their cabinets. Charles addressed senators over the phone as she boarded a plane in Washington, D.C., and briefly told them about why she chose her nominees. Amanda Griffin will hold the position of supervisor of elecStudent tions, James Dieterle Government will be the Athletics Cabinet Secretary, Paula Irvin will be the Advertising Cabinet Director and Casey Goldstein will be the director of the Disability Affairs Cabinet Director. Senators questioned Griffin about how she plans to change the SG elections.She said she wants to make sure her assistants are well-versed in the 700 codes, which outline the election rules in the Student Body constitution. Griffin said she would not change any election codes, such as those dealing with door-to-door campaigning, without the approval of the Senate. "I would never think of changing anything unless I was told to do so," she said. Grad wins top broadcasting contest By ANDREW PANTAZI Alligator Writer Miles Doran, a recent UF graduate, won the Hearst National Television Broadcast News Championship and a $5,000 prize in New York City June 11. The championship chooses the top stu7d -Fs = Courtesy of WUFT Miles Doran, left, and Patrick Fleming stand with a camera by the fence around the Guantanamo Bay prison. Doran won the Hearst National Television Broadcast News Championship. dent reporters from a series of monthly competitions held during the school year. At the championship, the students are given on-the-spot news assignments with no information given beforehand. Doran has gone to the Hearst championships twice before, both times in San Francisco. In 2008, his sophomore year, he received fourth place in radio news. The next year, he earned third place in television news. This time was different. "I already had some contacts in the city which helped me," he said. Doran, who graduated April 30 with a degree in telecommunications, said he was more prepared this time around because he was already living in New York City working for CBS. "This year, it was about security in New York after the Times Square bombing attempt a month or two ago," he said. Contestants filmed the news on June 9 and edited on June 10. Despite being familiar with the city, Doran still met obstacles. "We didn't have a car, and we had to lug all this equipment through the subway and taxis," he said. "That made it a little bit more challenging. It was also raining that evening. but everything turned out all right." He said he never doubted that his story would come through. Tom Krynski, WRUF's news director and one of Doran's mentors, said Doran's success was not surprising. "He enjoyed it so much," Krynski said. "It wasn't work to him. It wasn't a burden to him to do something special." While working for Krynski, Doran competed against professionals and students to win a national Edward R. Murrow Award. His story outlining the inner workings of security at UF football games won for best use of sound and also earned first place in a Society of Professional Journalists' competition for in-depth reporting. Doran's curiosity, work ethic and ability to look at things differently help him find stories, Krynski said. "He was willing to give up other things to do what he loved to do," Krynski said. Though Doranworked for WRUF's radio stationand WUFT's TV station as a student, his interest in broadcasting started before he hit college. He shadowed people in meteorology in third grade, according to his mother, Wendy Doran, of Palm Harbor. He also accompanied his father, who works in marine transportation, tracking storms in Puerto Rico. "We basically told him if you want to get something going you need to be the one to do it. He worked tirelessly," Wendy Doran said. Although people told Miles Doran he couldn't get an internship in high school, he finally got one working for WFTS, an ABC news station in Tampa. Five years later, Doran works for CBS as a digital journalist, shooting, editing and producing content. "I'm loving what I'm doing right now, and I'm just trying not to mess it up," he said. treet.ouse VILLAGE Entire units from $649 2 Bed/2 Bath, 874 sq. feet units -Bus Route 16 -Washer/Dryer -No Decal Parking -No Towing treehousevillage.co 117 SE 16th Ave (352) 372-3096 (Day) (352) 494-9724 (Night) keaes@vanrooy.com UNIVERSITY AVE.

THURSDAY, JULY 1, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 5 LOCAL UF student arrested for battery, trafficking drugs By KAT BEIN Alligator Writer A 22-year-old UF student was arrested and charged with trafficking large amounts of marijuana and cocaine late Tuesday night after attempting to run from police officers. Cameron Schmidt, who was wearing a backpack filled with what was later found to be drug paraphernalia and a gun, was stopped around 11 p.m. while walking east on Northwest Third Avenue with a friend, according to the Gainesville Police Department report. A Gainesville Police officer first noticed the pair walking down the street holding red Solo cups. When asked what was in the cups, both Schmidt and his friend told the officer they were drinking whiskey and Coke. When the officer asked the two to step to the front of the squad car, they started running south on Northwest 12th Terrace, the report stated. The officer chased the men in his car and caught up with them in the old Mellow Mushroom parking lot on University Avenue. Schmidt was caught, but his friend continued to run south until he was out of sight, the report stated. Schmidt spun around in the officer's grip and started fighting him to get away. He punched the officer in the face multiple times and pulled his hair, the report said. Schmidt threw his Schmidt backpack away during the fight and yelled, "I have cocaine .I can't go to jail. I'm in school." Schmidt was finally Tasered, which stopped him from resisting long enough for back-up officers to arrive. He was evaluated by EMS and refused medical treatment, according to the police report. Schmidt's friend was found by a K-9 Justice unit at College Manor Apartments at 1216 SW 2nd Ave., the report said. A search of Schmidt's backpack turned up 32.5 grams of marijuana packaged in separate plastic bags, 56.6 grams of cocaine and a loaded .22 caliber Sig Sauer handgun. Schmidt has been charged with battery on an officer, carrying a concealed weapon without a license, selling cannabis within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of drug paraphernalia, trafficking drugs, resisting arrest without violence and an open container violation, according to the report. His bond is set at $405,550. About 2,100 fans pack theater for 'Eclipse' premiere By ALYSA ORADAT Alligator Contributing Writer When Tyler Brooks' credit card company called about unusual activity and spending, he had to tell the truth. No, his credit card wasn't stolen. He spent $500 to purchase 50 tickets for his family and friends to see the third installment of "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse." Brooks was just one of about 2,100 people who arrived at Regal Butler Plaza Cinema 14, 3101 SW 35th Blvd., to pick up their tickets IF to the premiere of the hit vampirethemed movie from midnight to 3 a.m. Wednesday. Those who arrived to purchase tickets at the box office were out of luck. "I bought my tickets the day after advance tickets were available," said Lizzi Condo, who was sporting a handmade black T-shirt reading, "Bite me, it's my birthday." Condo celebrated her 20th birthday in Theater 11 with about 500 other die-hard fans who were eager to find out which mythical hero would win the heroine's heart in the final battle of werewolf versus vampire. "I'm team threesome. Forget Bella, I want both." Ada Martinez blood donor "Being labeled as a die-hard fan sounds a little intense," Condo said. "Although .I am here on my birthday." On an excitement scale from one to 10, Stephanie Gruber, 22, was at al10. She purchased her tickets more than a month ago in anticipation of catching the midnight showing. Gruber, who is 26 weeks pregnant, hopes to share her love of Twilight with her future daughter. "I definitely want her to watch Twilight when she's old enough," Gruber said.

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, JULY 1, 2010 Editorial Cold Cuts County has no more room to slash budget lachua County Commission candidates have been talking a lot about lowering taxes and cutting spending in the county, but we do not have a clue who they think they are kidding. The county gets most of its money from property taxes, and with more than 50,000 of the county's estimated 250,000 residents being college students, there are a lot of people who are not able to pay into the system. Not to mention that universityowned land, some of the most valuable in the county, is tax exempt. Cutting taxes will only force local government to spread its resources even thinner. And forget spending cuts. They may look good on paper, but what service or program is going to suffer the consequences of higher property-tax exemptions and a battered economy? The sheriff's office or fire rescue? It might be nice to see a fewer sheriff's squad cars on the road, but nothing good can come from cutting any more than that. Maybe we should get rid of the quarter-cent sales tax that funds CHOICES, the county health care program. Taking away health insurance from the working poor would be a great way to save money. Truth be told, there is not a lot of fat left to trim off the county budget. Pretty much any cut would end in more unemployment in the county or the loss of a valuable public service. Sure, proposals from both the county and the city for new taxes and fees like the fire assessment are hard to swallow, but the budget shortfalls are very real and need to be made up somehow. Any politician that says otherwise should be taken with a grain of salt. Dumbing Down W eare not surprised the "Twlight" saga is still eliciting "Harry Potter" levels of fanaticism out of women of all ages, but we would be lying if we said it has not had a profound impact on our faith in humanity. "Twilight" is the kind of trope-filled trash that Harlewere actually students at Hogwarts, but it is a tad more outre when women fantasize about their paramours being dead or sharing half their DNA with a dog. Give us a break. There is a reason highschool English teachers force Hemingway and Faulkner down students' throats. Their quin romances are made of. novels are generally thought And even with all the poten-provoking and offer some tial excitement it could draw from monster folklore, it is probably the only vampirecentric series of stories that could put Brain Stoker to sleep -if he could stop rolling over in his grave. Even though it's only a movie, "Twilight" is symptomatic of the increasingly bland direction the media are taking. Since "Harry Potter," everyone has been trying to mystify the world with simplistic fantasy stories. It was bad enough when kids took it too far and wished they sort of commentary on the world. They stand on their own as works of art, unlike "Twilight," which bolsters its flimsy plot by becoming a money machine that crosspromotes with car companies and fast food chains. There is always room for escapism, especially when it comes to summer blockbusters. But please refrain from fooling yourself into thinking "Twilight" is anything other than a quick way to get money out of "Harry Potter" tweens as they enter adulthood. a l l he independent fto rida Raohael 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 1105 W University A or send them to PO Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

One common theme prevailed: brick wall of government debt. the burden on local business from all levels of governIn an incredible role reversal, at th ment has to subside for the health of the local economy. Bryan Griffin G20 summit this previous weekend Increased taxation was shied away from by candidates letters@alligator org the US continued to advocate larg government spending programs; from both parties. Consistently, all the candidates said we can either be dragged down by the national economic situation, or we find ways to improve upon it. It should be apparent to all that after 18 months, President Obama's economic plan is not working. Even some of the apparent good news turns out to be bad. According to professor Arthur Laffer, a good portion of the corporate profits we are seeing this year reflects a shift of profits into 2010 to avoid the higher taxes that will come in 2011 with the expiration of the Bush tax cuts. What's more, Laffer predicts these higher tax rates will provoke the second half of the dreaded double dip recession. It's been about two full months since graduation at UF, and many people are finding that the job market is nearly impenetrable. There is probably more money in Nancy Pelosi's botox job than is being laid out to hire college grads new to the local job market. At this point, prospects for most are discouraging. Likewise, the economic downturn has hit home for many of us, as well. Some of our friends and family members are in the same situation looking for stability in a tumultuous economic environment. The financial situation our country is facing is daunting. The federal government is slowly backing us into uncontrollable debt but simultaneously refusing to consider a change in attitude when it comes to spending. Unfortunately, there is only so far we can stretch the American dollar. We're curlone voice among European protests. Admiral Mike Mullen of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff recently warned that the increasing national debt is the biggest threat to U.S. national security. There is also nothing encouraging to see on the employment front. Hiring thousands of temporary census workers does not count as real job growth. New jobs come from startup businesses or newer entrepreneurial enterprises. The administration's policy track has created a climate that has discouraged businesses from taking the risks of making new investments. I'm not claiming to be an economic expert nor do I have the space in this column to extensively cover all of the issues that need to be addressed. However, I do think we need to recognize the ultimate importance of electing politicians this November and in the future that have a different approach to handling money. Having the government tax, borrow and spend is not the formula for encouraging economic growth. When the fat needs to be cut, we can't have politicians in office that simply look to raise the debt cap. The current administration has offered short-term solutions to long-term problems and refused to recognize the long term consequences of its spending habits. Many economists are telling us we are nearing the point where the government will hit a debt ceiling. What we need, locally and nationally, are people willing to say enough is enough.

Letters to the Editor Candidate defends headquarter location The Laboratory is a hub for some of the most intellectual, artistic, creative and dynamic minds I've ever encountered. I spend my entire time debating, discussing and theorizing with the many patrons that come. It is my political training ground. If the Alligator Editorial Board took a little time to do some research, like real journalists do, they'd discover that I've spent very little time at The Laboratory in recent weeks. Between working full time, meeting with constituents, canvassing, attending county and city commission meetings, organizing my campaign team and forming committees, I've only been able to stop by the Lab to meet with party members and reporters. Larry and his wonderful staff at the Lab have been my supporters from the very beginning. I owe them everything, and they've asked for nothing. Without them, there would be no Ozzy Angulo Campaign. If the Editorial Board has any more questions, you know where to find me. Oswald Angulo City Commision candidate Owner objects to Lab being called a bar In today's editorial, the 'editor' referred to the Laboratory as a 'bar on University,' in a seeming attempt to discredit Ozzie Angulo. The Laboratory is a cafe. We do not sell liquor, and the majority of my business is food sales. If you wish to use my establishment as a tool for attack, please use it correctly. Larry Bruce Owner, The Laboratory: a Cafe of Science U U U Fire fee hurts property owners Dear Mayor and City Commissioners, This letter is to protest your raising a new fire services assessment on citizens already suffering from lowered incomes, lowered property values and tough economic times. THURSDAY, JULY 1, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 7 In some properties, there are up to 50 percent vacancies, even after lowering rents 20 percent and offering incentives. We all are struggling to pay the new higher city taxes and much higher insurance premiums. We are only able to continue by cutting our spending. If we could just raise rents as you raise taxes and special assessments all would be fine. But it is not possible, and all is not fine with the Gainesville city government. Overspending and lower revenue does not justify raising special assessments. It does require cutting back on all spending by city government and citizens alike. Jack L. Ward Owner, Pa/o Verde Apartments Guest column Students should take time to celebrate 'America's hat' today Celine Dion. Geddy Lee. Warren Moon's career. Drake (the rapper, not the Nickelodeon TV star). And hockey. Honestly, what's not to like about Canada? It doesn't go to war (unless the US tells it to), its main export is maple syrup (I may have just made that up) and Canadian Football League teams only get three downs, plus their fields are longer. Thursday is Canada Day, and I'll be showing pride for "America's hat" by painting myself red, white and maple syrup. While most of us know that you can order Chinese food -from China -quicker than you can get an ambulance in Canada, what else is important to know about the nation that burned Washington, D.C., to the ground in the War of 1812? Admittedly, Canada is America's joke. Canada is the Jan Brady to America's Marcia. Everybody always talks about Marcia, but no one notices Jan. Not to mention the fact Canada has plagued millions of teenage girls with the most painful disease since gonorrhea -Bieberitis. Canada may be pacifists, but if they don't get a hold of the 16-going-on-12-year-old, vocally-challenged star, then there's going to be a musical war of Tupac vs. Notorious B.I.G. proportions. Andrew Pantazi Then there's Canada's perpetual Speaking Out whining minority: the Quebecois. All the maddening Canucks have to do is complain, and the rest of Canada gives in to them. Sound like another minority that is constantly complaining in America? (Yes, I'm talking about the politically correct, far-left, anti-everything, we-don't-watchSouth-Park idiots.) And UF, the beacon of cultural education and learning about the world, does a bang-up job of teaching Gators about America's neighbor. The only regularly offered classes you can take at UF about Canada are Canadian politics and geography of the United States and Canada. Neither of those are offered this fall. But don't worry, just because Canada is the second largest nation in the world in land mass and our neighbor doesn't mean we should know anything about it. We just need to know how to make funny jokes about the globally insignificant allies of everyone. And we get that knowledge by listening to Weird Al's "Canadian Idiot." Why should college graduates even know how many provinces Canada has (10 provinces, three territories) or when they earned complete independence from England (it was 1982)? All that's important to know is that Sidney Crosby stole a gold medal from the USA. And that's un-American. But if you want an excuse to light off fireworks a few days early, then you need to know at least a few things about Canada Day. Canada doesn't have a real national anthem. They have three official versions of "0 Canada," but whenever they feel like it, they change it again. It can be made more militaristic or casual depending on the setting. So instead of singing the official "0 Canada," make up your own lyrics. If you're feeling patriotic, try watching the Toronto Blue Jays, because believe it or not Canada has been at war with America since 1977, when the Jays began playing in Major League Baseball. If you want to defend American pride, then pray Canada doesn't take over America's game when the Blue Jays take on the Cleveland Indians. Canada Day symbolizes the start of the Canadian Football League. How genius is that? Why don't we start the NFL on the Fourth of July? It would definitely make me feel a lot more American. But since we don't have any good, hard-hitting American football on the Fourth of July, watch the CFL and appreciate its hose-headed, yet challenging demeanor. Andrew Pantazi is a journalism senior.

"I hope there is more business, but I don't anticipate there will be," Nazzaro said. She thinks most people that prefer UV tanning will stick with it. Her business hasn't seen any direct effect as of now. Bill Rys, tax counsel for the National Federation of Independent Businesses said the new tax will reduce business. "Higher taxes mean less investment, reduced growth and fewer customers -hardly the prescription for future job growth our country needs," Rys said. Allison DeGroat, a UF biology junior, said the positives of the new tanning tax outweigh the negatives. "I believe this newly enforced taxation will cause some tanningbed clients to limit their tanning frequency, which will decrease their chances of developing skin cancer," DeGroat said. DeGroat said she thinks being tan makes her look better, healthier and more vibrant, but still thinks the new tax is fair. Max Reed/ Alligator A tanning booth from LAE Tanning and Boutique, 500 NW 60th St., is displayed in March. A new tax goes into effect for tanning salons starting Thursday. Creative B aims to show how art, science can meet outside of class CREATIVE, from page 1 said, informs participants about campus history and UF lore. Two walking tours took place during Summer A, and two more are planned for Summer B. The tours have attracted more faculty and alumni than students so far, Howard said. The Creative B events aren't focused toward age-specific groups, rather the events are intended to bring in people with similar interests, he said. Creative B is also hosting events like the video gaming tournament, which will be sponsored by the Digital Worlds Institute at the Old Norman Gym July 22 and 23. "The gaming tournament will get people who are gainers, whether they're freshmen or seniors," he said. Creative B is also offering three interdisciplinary courses. The first is Interactive Storytelling, a three-credit course offered by the Digital Worlds Institute. The second is America at Work: Get a Job, a one-credit course that coincides with a summer exhibit at the Harn Museum of Art. The third is Performance and Engagement, a three-credit course with the School of Theatre and Dance about how people make performances in everyday life, not just on stage. "The gaming tournament will get people who are gamers, whether they're freshmen or seniors." Andy Howard spokesman for the College of Fine Arts UF is growing, and Creative B should help students see how science and art can meet, Howard said. "Part of the conversation is bringing artists and scholars from across campus to study in an interdisciplinary context," he said. The coffee chain previously sold Internet access in two-hour increments STARBUCKS, from page 1 "eclectic" atmosphere prefer Coffee Culture, she said. Wireless Internet put Coffee Culture on the cutting edge when the store first offered it in 2004. But these days, it's the standard, she added. "I don't feel threatened at all," she said. "We built a foundation, and the people who come to us are going to continue to come to us. Anthony Rue, who owns Volta Coffee, Tea & Chocolate in downtown Gainesville, said he thinks the move will hurt Starbucks because they won't serve customers as quickly. Volta has more room for people to lounge than Starbucks does, so if people camp out at Starbucks, there won't be a place to sit, he said. Kristin Allukian, an English graduate student at UF and a regular Starbucks customer, said Starbucks offers benefits that some of the locally-owned shops don't. Because Starbucks operates on such a large scale, they aren't as dependent on customer turnover, she said. "I feel like I could stay here all day and have free refills and unlimited parking, and nobody would notice," she said. Wesley Kokomoor, a UF nuOn clear engineering graduate stuCampUS dent, said he has long accessed Internet at Starbucks by buying gift cards for items he would have ordered anyway. Previously, customers who bought a gift card for more than $5 could get online for two hours. Starbucks is simply catching up to the rest of the industry and the rest of the world, UF Economics Chair Jonathan Hamilton said. Starbucks has offered free wireless in Europe for years, he said. The decision to offer free Internet in the United States could be a response to McDonald's attempt to capture some of the coffee market, he said. McDonald's launched its McCafe campaign in May of 2009, and began to offer free wireless Internet in January of this year.

A helpful guide on how to not piss off your bartenders By THOMAS PLEVIK avenue contributing writer Gainesville is crammed with bars, and this Fourth of July weekend you will no doubt encounter throngs of sloppy drunks ready to join you in the never-ending war against joyless, American sobriety. It's a free world, and you can run with any crowd you like. But remember, no matter where you go or who you choose to slop with, in every bar you will run into the one omnipotent, super force: the bartender. Out of all the "friends" you could possibly make during the evening, bartenders are (obviously) the most helpful. To help you stay the friendly, wellliked mini-alcoholic that you are, here are five things you can do to avoid annoying that singular, supreme god of drinks. 1. Know what you want before you order: Think of a bartender as the maintenance person for a well-oiled machine. If your head is so full of non-alcohol-related garbage that you can't even cough up the words to place your order when the time comes, you're just slowing down the entire process and keeping good people from getting (watered-down) drinks. 2. Keep your money in your hand and let your eyes do the talking: Bartenders get your drinks faster if you let them know you mean business. Remember that your cash can shout down any bartender better than your can. "Don't wave me down. We're selling drinks, not hawking fat backs," Joel Bryant, the resident spirit slinger at University Club and six-year veteran of the business, said. "Don't call my name, and please have money in your hands because all we ever see is your money," Bryant said. Also, eye contact and a friendly smile go a longway in lettingthe bartender know you are not a pompous jerk. Former bartender Kim Wallace from the 2nd Street Speakeasy agrees that anyone waving his or her arms and acting impatient is goingto wait much longer. 3. Be aware of your surroundings: You look like an idiot when you ask what beers are on tap when the handles are a foot away from your face. Knowing where to stand will help the bartender serve easier, and help you both avoid needless confusion. "Stay in front of the well," Bryant said. "It's much easier to get to you, and you know I'll be back there in a minute." When the bar starts to fill with peoplekeep drinks simple -nothing more complicated than a two-mix cocktail, and the bartender will know you're working for them and not against them. A bar is like an altar for many bartenders. If you think you're an alcoholic angel in a heaven of your own drunken bliss, then the bartender is God, and he wants you to respect his space. 4. Acting sloppy guarantees your next visit will be a bummer: Going to the bathroom after a couple of hours of sipping on the sauce can be a lot like walking off a carnival ride. There is a lot of uneasy swaying, and mostly you just want something solid to sit on. Somehow, though, you make it to the next attraction. If you can resist the urge to puke in public and keep your overflowing personalityto a minimum, you'll have earned the respect and gratitude of the bartender. Clean up after yourself a little, and the bartender will have that much more time to pour you a drink. Keep your friends close. If you're too sloshed to head out the door at closing time you become the bar's problem, and that can keep everyone late. It's something you can be sure the bartender won't forget the next time you walk up to his or her bar. 5. You will never flirt your way to a free drink: Unless you are sucking the last drops of alcohol left on planet Earth, your kiss is never worth the price of a drink. Give it up, because it's a bartendher's job to deal with a new booze hound every 30 seconds and every one of them wants to drink for free. Everyone on stage or behind the bar is 50 percent better looking, according to the 86 rules of Boozing. They know it, and if you try to flirt up a free martini they are probably going to flirt a 30 percent tip right out of your pocket book. Bartending is an equal gender offender: women bartenders deal with obnoxious flirts as much as their male counterparts. Bryant scoffs at the idea of allowing anyone a free drink just because they look good in a dress shirt. Bryant is steadfast in his pay-asyou-partake policy. "It gets fierce in here," said Bryant. "Be a man in a gay bar and be a bartender. Girls have it easy because men are fierce." Moments later, a University Club regular teasingly offers Bryant pictures of his genitals in exchange for a tumbler of whiskey. "You see this shit," laughs Bryant, ignoring the man's cries for more whiskey. "This is the shit I have to deal with. Don't ever be this guy!"

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 1, 2010 Fourth of July brings patriotism to drinking, celebrating Themed drinks and Jell-O shots can bring a party to life r-By RICHARD STEHLI avenue writer Fireworks, patriotism and guns! It's the Fourth of July, and the best way to enjoy the aforementioned Americana is with a drink in your hand. It shouldn't surprise anyone that my weapon of choice is a frosty beer. I prefer the warmth provided by a cold brew over the hassle of mixing colorful drinks anyday. However, the fourth of july affords special circumstances, and as your loyal alcohol connoisseur, I'd like to impart some variations on a theme that might just kick that barbecue into party overdrive. First, you want to be sure the beer you're drinking is representative of the glorious U.S. of A, and that you're not lining some European fat cat's pockets. Yuengling is America's oldest brewery, founded in 1829, and Sam Adams is, by its name alone, the brewer and the patriot. Anchor Steam was born and raised in the USA and comes from one of America's first successful microbreweries, which also makes Anchor Liberty Ale. Here's a word of warning, my patriot friends: Budweiser, Miller and Coors are all at least partially owned by foreign companies. Another good idea for your Independence Day drinking is layered drinks. With a bit of technique, you can pour layers of red, white and blue liquors or mixers. To do this, try to determine the density of your alcohols. If you're short a hydrometer, you can always experiment until you figure it out. Pour your heaviest drink into the bottom of a glass and wait a minute or so for it to settle. Carefully pouring over the back of a spoon to protect the bottom layer, float your next heaviest liquor on top. Once the drink settles, pour your third the same way. It might take some practice, but it will be worth it in the end. Worst-case scenario, line up a shot of each for a more horizontal and less difficult tricolor effect. For those without steady hands or patience, it's easier to layer red, white and blue Jell-O shots. Just mix and cool the colors one at a time, adding them on top as you go. For the white layer, consider a mix of cream, sugar, vanilla, coconut rum and gelatin for extra flavor and texture. Whether you celebrate our nation's birth with beer, liquor, Jell0 shots or even soft drinks, make sure you exercise caution around explosives, campfires and sparklers. You know what they say: "It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye or a testicle." Here are some Fourth-inspired drink ideas, aptly titled "the preamble," courtesy of UV vodka.

THURSDAY, JULY 1, 2010* ALLIGATOR, 11 The Second Amendment: a love story (with guns) By ALEX ORLANDO avenue writer I know you've been waiting for it: the weekend of booze, fireworks and watermelon in celebration of our country that looms at the end of this first week of Summer B. But before you do all that gallivanting at the possible expense of a friend's fiery death, let's take a minute to look back at one of the amendments our country was built on and how it's standing today. I'm going conservative as all get out on this one, but I'm talking about the Second Amendment. You should reflect on the factthat until Monday of this week, your local government could take that right away from you. If you've been following any kind of news source this week, you'd know that the Supreme Court struck down Chicago's handgun ban and enforced the Second Amendment over all future jurisdiction. As a college student, I feel like I'm supposed to be a pretentious liberal punk and take Chicago's side. On the other hand, being a kid from North Florida who hangs out in the boondocks that surrounds Gainesville, I feel like I should side with the court's decision. Maybe say something along the lines of, "Hell yeah, we should bear our arms! What if that evil Obama starts infringin' on our rights, and we gotta start a militia?" I'll be up-front with you guys. I stand by the Second Amendment, but not for any of that ultra-aggressive, conservative malarkey. Guns are just so damn fun to shoot. And being a guy from Alachua or an ACR as you out-of-towners love to call us -I had the opportunity last weekend to drive out to my buddy's farm and blast my Second Amendment enthusiasm through all kinds of targets. About five of my closest friends and I set up under a gazebo at the edge of his 100-acre property with seven guns, four targets and enough ammo to sink a small boat. When it was my turn to shoot, I grabbed my friend's .44 Magnum that I had been eyeing all day. Yes, the one from "Dirty Harry" that will "blow your head clean off." And being the pun-filled jerk that I am, I feel it is my duty to add that it really did make my day. All stupidity aside, aiming that hand-cannon around the pasture, I couldn't help but notice the sense of power that coursed through me. For the rest of this story, visit a//igator.org/the avenue. Photo courtesy of Tom Davis Avenue writer Alex Orlando aims a .44 Magnum at watermelon on a farm in Alachua. He doesn't want to give up the Second Amendment because "guns are really damn fun to shoot." Fanfares and Fireworks show returns to Flavet Field THE EVENT WAS CANCELED IN 2009 DUE TO LACK OF FUNDING. By ERIN RAUCH avenue writer Gainesville's only annual fireworks display is bursting back to life with help from local sponsors. Fanfares and Fireworks was canceled in 2009 due to a lack of funding. UF and the state legislature cut the budget for the event, accordingto a press release. "It has become a tradition for many families, so they were very disappointed," Sue Wagner, director of communications at WUFT-TV/DT, said. The 20-year tradition recommences Saturday, starting at 7 p.m. at the UF bandshell at Flavet Field. Wagner said the event is scheduled on the third so families can participate in other Independence Day events. Conchita Ruiz-Topinka, spokeswoman for AvMed Health Plans, said the not-for-profit organization decided to step in when it heard the event was in trouble financially. "We like to get involved in the communities and the markets that we serve," Ruiz-Topinka said. "We have a significant presence in Gainesville with about 350 employees." The annual Independence Day celebration is sponsored by AvMed Health Plans, UF, the University Athletic Association and the City of Gainesville. "Traditionally, it's been a great event," said Mike Hill, associate athletics director. "We are just proud to play a small part of this as WUFT relaunches it." The event is free and open to the public. Wagner said families and students come and picnic in the grass, listen to music and watch the fireworks. Coolers are allowed at the event but may be subject to search by the University Police Department. Concessions will be available for purchase. No dogs, sparklers or alcohol are allowed at the event. Attendees can listen to live music performed bythe 6th Street Rhythm and Blues Review, Hartley Leacock and the Collective Format Band and the Gainesville Community Band. The Gainesville Community Band will play for an hour throughout the fireworks display. The fireworks display is presented by Skylighters of Florida and will begin at 9:40 p.m., according to a press release. UPD estimates between 15,000 and 20,000 people will attend.

12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 1, 2010 Rock band Rooney to make tour stop in Gainesville By ALISHA KINMAN avenue writer Famed West coast rock band Rooney is coming to Gainesville. The band, perhaps best known for the songs "I'm Shakin'" and "Blueside" in addition to its guest appearance on "The O.C.," will be stopping in Gainesville on July 8 to perform at Common Grounds and promote its new album, "Eureka." After recently splitting with its record label, the four-man band released its third full-length album on June 8. Ned Brower, Rooney's drummer and vocalist, spoke with me about its new album and coast-to-coast tour. Brower said the idea for the title of the CD is based on California's state seal, where it says "eureka" across the top of the emblem. To go with the title, the album cover resembles the state seal but with the four bandmates posing in the background. In 1999, the band released its first CD, "Rooney," that also showed off its California pride by designing the album cover to resemble California's state flag. Other CD releases by Rooneyinclude "Callingthe World," in 2007, and "Wild One EP," in 2009. But, unlike Rooney's previous albums, "Eureka" was produced after discontinuing its label contract with Geffen/Interscope Records. Splitting away from the label hasn't taken away from the production or creativity of the CD, Brower said. If anything, the sounds in this album are coming from the band more literally. "Eureka" is the first album to be produced under Rooney's personal label, California Dreamin' Records. "You can hear the individual performances and the voices betterthan before," Brower said. When arranging the lyrics and songs, the band has made an effort to work as a group and take chances on new music styles. The music is more sophisticated in "Eureka," Brower said. Some of the songs have a '70s jazz-rock feel while others give off a psychedelic vibe. Generally, Robert Schwartzman, the lead vocalist, writes the songs in his head, and the band arranges erskates, back-up dancers dressed in 1970s flare and vibrant neon colors that resemble the late '60s are sure to grab viewer's attention. the music together. On occasion, the On June 16, Rooney kicked off its other three members, Ned Brower, tour in San Diego, Calif. to promote Taylor Locke and Louie Stevens, will "Eureka" and will finish in Austin, take turns brainstorming lyrics. Brower said it takes around two days to record each song. Recently, Rooney's headlining single off "Eureka," "I Can't Get Enough," made VH1's Top 20 Countdown premiere list online. "The music video is unlike anything before," Brower said. "There's stunt rollerskating, animation and Texas, in August. If a show is coming up soon, rehearsals are taken seriously, Brower said. But, before each performance, Rooney gets ready to perform by vocally warming up and doing a cheer before going on stage. With the upcoming Gainesville show a week away, I was curious to know what the West Coast natives live action." knew about the town. Rooneyfan or not, the splits in roll"Tom Petty," Brower said.

THURSDAY, JULY 1, 2010 + ALLIGATOR, 13 Dave's ideal Fourth of July ext d e Fourth of July. It's possibly the g greatest holiday that has ever existed. Some guys signed a piece of paper that brought the United States of America into existence, and more than two centuries later we commemorate that day in the most American way: grilling getting belligerently drunk and watching things explode. I love July Fourth because I'm a big fan of America. It's pretty much the best country I've ever lived in. This is the country that gave the world sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, and I plan on showing how much I appreciate it by going all out this Sunday. I've decided to share some of my plans with you because I'm sure there are some of you out there who are interested in knowing what I'll be up to (or, bored in class). First, I'll be replacingallthe chicken at my barbecue with bald eagle meat. What better way to enjoy America then tasting the succulent flesh of our national bird? Yes, you party pooper, I know it's illegal to do that, because it's an endangered species. To that, I ask: Where is your American spirit? You think the Boston Tea Party was legal? What if the Redcoats said they were an endangered species? We'd all be drinkingtea at 4 p.m. every day instead of beer and placravaganza ing extra u' words wh we don't n them. ( special tip cooking eagle: Th Dave Johnson some Columnist branches the grill wit s in iere eed One for bald row Live on h it. You thought that bird was majestic to look at? One bite of an eagle wing and that flavor will make you stand up and salute Old Glory.) To further spice up my Fourth, I'm breaking out the big guns -literally. As part of my fireworks extravaganza, I've refurbished an actual cannon that was used in the Revolutionary War and plan on firing it along University Avenue (weather permitting). I love the Fourth of July because we get to smack talk the British all we want. Hey, England! You suck at soccer, just like you suck at maintaining sovereignty over your colonies! I'd like to wrap up this week's column by giving a special shout out to the new freshmen starting Summer B this week: Hey guys, what's up? Quick tip: There is no secret pool on the roof of your dorm. You know where there is a pool, though? My house. I'm over 21, too. Hit me up on Facebook, ladies. a\/'ToOnl ---l V ~.

Sports THURSDAY, JULY 1, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Young ready to contribute By ANTHONY CHIANG Alligator Staff Writer achiang@alligator org Patric Young's classes started on Monday, but he isn't in Gainesville yet. The incoming Gators basketball freshman has a good excuse. Young won't arrive to campus until today because he has been in San Antonio playing for the USA Men's Basketball U-18 National Team. The squad beat Brazil 81-78 on Wednesday to win the gold medal. "I definitely was humbled a little bit coming out here to understand how the game is going to be played at the next level," Young said. "It's a lot more physical and the referees are going to let you play a lot more and coaches expect so much more from you as far as being on time and taking notes during film sessions." The rapid development of the 6-foot-9-inch lowpost presence will be vital to Florida this season. Young, a five-star recruit and the fifthranked center in the 2010 recruiting class according to Rivals, is expected to provide a solid option at both the power forward and center positions right away. "I think coach Donovan is going to have me come onto the team as a freshman and have an immediate role on the team," he said. "I think I'll come in as a role player looking to rebound a lot. I'm banking on maybe (my sophomore season) will be my year to shine." "I think we have all the talent to make it that far and I think I'll play a big role in helping us get there." Patric Young UF basketball commitment Not known as a scorer, Young averaged 14.2 points per game to go along with 12.4 rebounds and 3.2 blocks as a senior. The Jacksonville native expects to provide defense and help on the boards with guards Erving Walker and Kenny Boynton taking care of the scoring. Many are looking at Young to join rising sophomore Erik Murphy as the two primary frontcourt reserves. "(Young is) a guy that is a very aggressive player, he's very physical," UF coach Busy month lands Gators six verbal co UF now has 10 commitments for 2011 recruiting c/ass By TOM GREEN Alligator Writer tgreen@alligator org National Signing Day may be seven months away, but the Gators took strides during the month of June toward building another strong football recruiting class. After coming into June with just four commitments, Florida received solid verbals from six prospects last month to push the 2011 recruiting class to a total of 10 commitments so far. The six commitments in June are more than any other Southeastern Conference school and in-state rivals UM and FSU. Among the verbal commitments the Gators received last month, two came from four-star recruits and three came from threestar recruits, as rated by Rivals. Florida started the month slow on the recruiting trail, not landing a commitment until nearly two weeks in when Lakeland's four-star wide receiver Javares McRoy decommitted from Texas Tech, where he originally committed with his older brother Benjamin -a three-star athlete. "I just thought about where I really wanted to go and what best fit me and my running style, and UF fits my style," McRoy told The Lakeland Ledger last month. McRoy became the Gators' first skill position commitment of the 2011 class and the first Lakeland prospect to commit to UF since 2007, when the Gators signed Mike and Maurkice Pouncey, Ahmad Black and Chris Rainey. After McRoy's commitment to the Gators, the ball kept rolling along the recruiting trail and five more prospects verbally pledged to play for UF in 2011. On June 17, three-star fullback, Hunter Joyer, accepted a scholarship offer from Florida after his showing at coach Urban Meyt F er's football camp that week. Football The 6-foot, 245-pound Joyer is rated No. 1 overall at his position by Rivals and ran for 1,030 yards and 10 touchdowns for Tampa Catholic in 2008. His commitment is peculiar, considering how little Meyer has used fullbacks during his tenure at Florida, but could point to Billy Donovan said. "I think his offense will grow and get better as time goes on, but I think the one thing he brings to our team right away is great energy and passion and a physical presence." The person who is responsible for Young's decision to come to UF is not with the Gators anymore. According to Young, former UF assistant and new VCU head coach Shaka Smart is the one who convinced the recruit that Gainesville was the place he would most flourish in. But once he committed, he didn't want to be one of those players to change his mind, so he never second-guessed his decision after Smart left. Young has high expectations when he steps onto campus today. He isn't shy about predicting where the Gators, which are returning their entire starting five, will end up. "It's funny because (Marreese) Speights actually tweeted that the Gators are going to be in the Final Four this year," he said. "I think we have all the talent to make it that far and I think I'll play a big role in helping us get there." nmitments the Gators deploying the I-formation more in the coming years with quarterback John Brantley under center. Four days after Joyer gave his verbal to the Gators, they landed two more recruits in Tommy Jordan, an offensive lineman from Ridgefield, Conn., and Plantation linebacker Ryan Shazier. Jordan is a three-star nose guard prospect who committed to Florida after visiting the football camp last month. Shazier, the other four-star prospect the team landed in June, recorded 87 tackles and 19 sacks as a junior last year for the Colonels. The linebacker, who is rated as the ninthbest at his position by Rivals, visited the school with his family last month and committed to the Gators shortly thereafter. SEE RECRUIT, PAGE 22 UF BASEBALL 0 UF freshman shortstop Nolan Fontana was named to the Rawlings NCAA Division I Gold Glove Team on Wednesday. He was the lone freshman chosen this season. VOLLEYBALL 0 It was announced on Wednesday that outside hitters Stephanie Ferrell and Cinthya Roberto, and opposite hitter Tangerine Wiggs have all transferred to UF. Roberto is a two-time junior college All-American. TEEINGOFFTOM GREEN U NBA free agency started at midnight and within a week we will all know the answer to the biggest question of the offseason: where will Brian Scalabrine sign? .Elin Woods will receive $750 million in her divorce from Tiger Woods in the aftermath of the golfer's sexual exploits -sexploits, if you will -meaning she will now get paid more for doing nothing than Stephon Marbury ever did.

22, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, JULY 1, 2010 #i Iq~ ii Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers Three-star WR Story committed to play for UF over 22 other schools RECRUIT, from page 21 According to The Gainesville Sun, Shazier said Meyer was "excited" by his commitment and thanked him for it. Florida's June recruiting surge came to a climax on Monday when it gained its fifth and sixth verbal commitments of the month. Nature Coast wide receiver Ja'Juan Story gave his verbal to UF on Monday, shunning scholarship offers from at least 22 schools, including five other SEC schools and UF's in-state rivals FSU and UM. Story, who joins McRoy as the Gators' only two wide receiver commitments thus far for 2011, brings even more speed to Meyer's offense, as he runs a 4.4 40-yard dash, according to Rivals. As a junior, Story caught 13 passes for 423 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 265 yards and two scores on 27 carries. He also recorded 22 tackles and one sack while playing defensive back for the Sharks. Story could play on either side of the ball for the Gators by the time 2011 comes around, but will be playing quarterback at Nature Coast this coming season as a senior. The same day Story committed to Florida, the Gators also landed their tenth recruit for 2011 -one that wasn't even on their radar at the beginning of the month. Kicker Kyle Christy of Brownsburg, Ind., committed to UF after receiving an offer Monday night. Christy wasn't recruited by UF until he attended the team's kicking camp that took place from June 21-23. "I talked to Urban Meyer and he said they actually had three or four guys there specifically just to look at them, and I wasn't one of those guys," Christy said. "But I stole the show." Christy said he impressed coaches with his punting and called them Monday night. It was then they decided to offer him a scholarship, which he quickly accepted over an offer from LSU.

THURSDAY, JULY 1, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 23 Decision to move CWS from Rosenblatt Stadium a foolish one It is a sad day when you lose something that has been woven into a city's identity. No, I am not talking about the possibility of LeBron James walking away from the Cleveland Cavaliers. This is about something even more ingrained into the prototypical idea of American sports. This is about something that has been a staple in our country for 61 years. The book on Rosenblatt Stadium, home of the College World Series, was officially closed after South Carolina won the CWS title on a walk-off hit Tuesday. The ballpark that sits on a hill in Omaha, Neb., will soon be demolished in order to make way for a new state-of-the-art facility. TD Ameritrade Park Omaha, a beautiful 24,000-seat stadium that will become the new home of the CWS, is being built just three miles north of Rosenblatt. Corporate executives are going to love the comfortable venue loaded with 30 luxury suites and 1,000 club seats, but baseball fans won't. This move is a travesty. Unlike Rosenblatt, which is on the south side of Omaha in the middle of an empty field next to sports bars and famous eating spots, Ameritrade Park will be located in the downtown area. When I made the trip to cover the CWS a couple of weeks ago, I saw what everybody was talking about. It felt like what baseball is supposed to feel like. Tailgaters surrounded the stadium and fans stood in lines for hours just for a chance at tickets to catch a glimpse of the action. If you didn't know, college baseball doesn't usually draw the biggest crowd. But in Omaha, it does. Sure, Ameritrade Park will be in that same city, but things won't be the same. As I drove by the semi-built stadium, I couldn't help but notice the gigantic shadows projected onto Ameritrade Park by the sky-rise buildings looming over it. These money-making landmarks mark the end of tailgating alongside the stadium and the famous eating spots like Zesto's Drive-in, a legendary burger and milkshake joint located next to Rosenblatt which makes 80 to 90 percent of its profit during the CWS. This is just one of the factors that played into the fans' decision to boo Omaha MayAnthony Chiang Chiang Reaction achia ng@alligator org or Jim Suttle at the opening ceremonies. But let's just think about the logistics of this move. The Omaha Royals, a minor league affiliate of the Kansas City Royals, call Rosenblatt their home, too. But they aren't following the CWS to Ameritrade Park because they thought it would be too big for them. Instead, another stadium is being built for the Royals. That's right, two baseball stadiums within 20 minutes of each other are under construction simultaneously. They are expected to cost $154 million combined. None of this makes any sense. There is something to be said about the feel of an old ballpark full of tradition that witnessed 61 years full of special CWS moments, Robin Ventura's NCAA-record 58 game hitting streak come to an end and thousands upon thousands of fans travel to a part of Omaha that is not often visited if it isn't for the CWS. The ballpark was not even in bad shape. I had the opportunity to walk around the stadium multiple times and sit in the crowd to watch some of the games, and everything was in good condition by my standards. Rosenblatt looked as pretty as ever. It seemed to be freshly painted and all of the facilities were up to the times. I know the CWS can't be played in Rosenblatt forever, but it just doesn't seem like their is a reason to change sites right now. What is going to happen to the nearby restaurant owners which wait all year for the CWS to come around to make their profits? What is going to happen to the house next to Rosenblatt whose residents earn over a $1,000 a year from parking cars in their yard? A lot of people are going to feel the effects of this loss, not only baseball fans. But once the old ballpark is demolished, there is no looking back. Instead, the adjacent Henry Doorly Zoo, one of the top zoos in the country, will take control of the sacred land once the ballpark is knocked down. A little league replica of Rosenblatt will be built on the site, too. This mini version of the stadium seems fitting with all of the childish politics that went into this decision. frozen your non-fat, cholesterol-free certified probiotic nutritious dessert alternative only 45 cents/oz 0C BRING THIS AD AND RECEIVE 4 OZ.
