UF ADMINISTRATION

Despite budget cuts, Machen vows to keep UF jobs

grams.
Rather than cutting personnel or pro-
grams, the university will look to other
methods to reduce the budget.
For example, UF is discussing plans to
increase tuition, rearrange employee ben-
efits and use money typically reserved for
university purchases toward existing pro-
grams.
The state legislature approved an 8
percent tuition increase, and UF plans
to bridge the budget gap by seeking the
Board of Governors' approval to increase
tuition by the maximum of 15 percent.
Students' pockets will take an addi-
tional hit in the fall as Florida legislators
decided to cut Bright Futures scholarships
by about 20 percent.
Students aren't the only ones affected
by the state's cutbacks.
Under another bill passed by the leg-
islature, state employees will be required
to contribute 3 percent of their salaries to
their retirement plans beginning July 1.
Machen said he sees this as an addi-
tional budget cut for UF employees and is
looking into benefit changes that may al-
low the university to compensate for this
reduction in salary.
He also addressed the legislature's ap-
proval of a new program that will give
incoming students the option to take on-
campus classes only during the spring and
summer semesters.
The program, to be implemented in
January 2013, could bring up to 2,000 new
students to the university.
In addition, UF is looking into actions
such as expanding distance-learning pro-
grams and increasing out-of-state student
enrollment as part of a three-year plan
to generate revenue in case state funding
doesn't rebound.
"We're not assuming that it's going to
get a lot better," Machen said. "We're just
hoping it doesn't get a lot worse."


Alligator invites students (yes, you) to open house


* The open house will take place Friday from
12:30 to 2:30 p.m.

ALLIGATOR STAFF REPORT

The Independent Florida Alligator, the largest student-run
publication in the United States, will be hosting an open house
this Friday from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m at its office located at 1105 W.
University Ave.


Students from all majors and academic backgrounds are
welcome to come. The open house will give students an oppor-
tunity to meet and speak with head staff about opportunities
available at the paper. Pizza will be served.
" Even if you think, 'Well, they can't be look-
Local ing for some clown like me...well yeah, we are,"
News said CJ Pruner, editor-in-chief of the Alligator. "I
am confident there are a lot of bright, talented in-
dividuals out there who could offer something special to our
publication."


At this time, the Alligator is seeking writers, columnists,
photographers, copy editors and anybody looking to gain ex-
perience.
"The Alligator is a great place to get solid clips that employ-
ers take seriously when they recruit," said Joey Flechas, the pa-
per's managing editor. "Many writers for this paper secure jobs
and professional internships from the work they do here, but
more importantly, they make life-long friends."
Interested students should bring a resume, samples of their
work and any ideas they may have to improve the paper.

Tenacious dog escapes Or-

MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) -After
three late-night escape attempts
from an Oregon veterinarian's of-

ports the crafty canine managed
to pull open his kennel, trip the
dead bolt on the clinic's back door
and pull down the handle to get
outside.
He set off three motion-detec-

Students swap garb for coin


By JASMINE EARLS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Students in Gainesville are reaping the
benefits of cutting their wardrobes as a num-
ber of consignment businesses in Gainesville
are offering students an opportunity to dump
off their old clothes, collect some cash and
shop all at the same time.
For local owners of such stores, the sum-
mer months have seen a spike in business.
"The summer season is the busiest time
of year for us," said Alicia Bonamie, store
manager for Plato's Closet. "We've been
swamped for like a month."
Cendra Gire, owner of Cecile's, a local
consignment shop, said the economy might
be to blame for the influx of garments.
"With the economy in the position it's
in, we see a lot more people selling clothes
than in the past," Gire said. "Some need the
money for books, electric bills, and some just
want to get rid of their stuff."
Students bring in their freshly laundered


apparel. The store clerk checks the clothing
for holes. If it passes inspection, the student
walks away with cash.
On average, for one or two garbage bags
of clothes, a student can walk out with any-
thing from $25 to $75.
"We hear the stories, and a lot of them are
going out and just want something new," she
said.
Ryan Ramezani, 23-year-old ':,..1.. - stu-
dent, said he didn't spend
Around any money in the store, but
Gainesville walked away with padded
pockets.
"I went in, let them look through it and
walked away with 75 bucks," Ramezani
said. "That was the easiest 75 dollars I ever
made."
The influx of students coming in to trade
their old gear for monetary gain has prompt-
ed the store to expand.
The new Plato's Closet will be located on
34th Street and University Ave. and will open
before Fall semester.


UF SENATE

SG ratifies Meyers'


cabinet appointments


By EMILY MORROW
Alligator Writer
In a meeting that took three roll
calls and 45 minutes to get the 51
senators needed to establish quo-
rum, Student Government kicked off
the summer semester by approving
all of Student Body President Ben
Meyers' executive appointments.
"I really feel like we got the best
of the best," Meyers said. "We have
a cabinet that brings very diverse
experience, which will be able to do
great things for the Student Body."
Corey Portnoy, a senior politi-
cal science major, will take over as
the new Accent chairman. Adam
Hewko, a fifth-year political sci-
ence major, and Jeff Schnier, a se-
nior accounting major, will co-chair
Student Government Productions
Senior Toni Megna will take over as
supervisor of elections.


Forty-five other positions, includ-
ing those for executive directors,
cabinet secretaries, division chairs
and cabinet directors, were also ap-
proved by the Senate.
The newly appointed students
will serve in their offices for a year-
long term.
"I really feel like we got the
best of the best."
Ben Meyers
Student Body President

The Senate held a moment of si-
lence and passed a resolution hon-
oring the UF students and faculty
who passed away during the spring
semester, as well as a resolution of-
fering condolences to the University
of Alabama and those affected by
the tornadoes that hit Tuscaloosa in
April.

New UF program: attend only in spring, summer


* ADMINISTRATORS EXPECT 2,000
STUDENTS TO PARTICIPATE..

By JESSICA KEGU
Alligator Contributing Writer

Since childhood, summer meant it was
time for leisure and fall meant it was time
to go back to school. UF is turning that on
its head.
The program, scheduled to begin in
Spring 2013, aims to attract 2,000 students
to the university.
Students in the program are limited to
on-campus enrollment during the Spring
and Summer semesters for their four years
at UF


During the fall semester, they will only
be allowed to take online courses or intern-
ships for credit.
The measures are a way the university
can admit more students without over-
crowding the already jam-packed Fall se-
mester.
"Half of the 29,000 applications we re-
ceived were plenty qualified," UF spokes-
woman Janine Sikes said. "We just have a
limited number of seats to offer."
Students do not currently receive Bright
Futures scholarship money during summer.
The bill makes Bright Futures available to
students participating in this program dur-
ing spring and summer, just not fall.
Sikes noted that this would open up in-


ternship and study abroad opportunities
for these students.
There are still many details to work out
before anything can be implemented, Sikes
said.
"We just have a limited number of
seats to offer."
Janine Sikes
UF Spokeswoman

She said students should not be suffer
from lack of class availability.
"Students should be able to take as
many courses as they need to take in the
same way as any other student would dur-
ing the fall and spring to graduate on time,"/


Sikes said.
"We've been conditioned since we were
children that school starts in the fall," Sikes
said, "but this is an entirely different ap-
proach."
Sikes said that students would still be
eligible to purchase -.... rl: :II tickets as long
as they were enrolled d in online classes or an
internship.
While this is good news for prospec-
tive Gators, not all UF students are thrilled
about the new program. Some, like Deanna
Pinzon, think that despite the opportunity
to be a part of the Gator nation, these stu-
dents won't be getting the total package.
"They would be half-Gators because
they're only getting half the experience."

Hippodrome founder dresses the stage's finest


By HANNAH WINSTON
Alligator Writer

Marilyn Wall has dressed hun-
dreds of actors who have per-
formed on the Hippodrome State
Theater's stage.


But one of her favorite stars to
work with was an alien.
When her three sons, Marcos,
Miguel and Carly, were growing
up in Gainesville, she would go
into their classrooms and have art
class, create plays and get the kids


in touch with their artistic sides.
There, she noticed a little boy who
was made fun of. So she wrote a
play about him.
His classmates loved him after.
"He was a star for a day," she
said.


IViXA neeu/ mnlll itu o1ll
Costume designer Marilyn Wall poses while mending an intricately dressed mannequin at the Hippo-
drome Wednesday afternoon.


She started as a costume design-
er at 22, but she couldn't stitch. She
had never even stepped in a cos-
tume shop before she helped start
the Hippodrome, now located at
25 S.E. 2nd Place in downtown
Gainesville.
A year after graduating from
UF with a degree in theater, Wall
and five other friends came back to
Gainesville to start a theater. Pool-
ing together about $3,000 from a
year of work in 1973, the group
was able to rent an old 7-Eleven on
the condition that the three men in
the group cut their hair.
The six artists did everything
for the shows: design the sets, get
supplies, direct, act and create the
costumes. Wall dabbled in all of it.
In 1979, the theater moved to
the old Federal Building that had
been used as a post office and
courtroom. It has been a staple for
Gainesville art since.
"I'm amazed sometimes when I
walk in here, the impact it's had on
the .:..ii, i, ', v, . " she said.
Out of the original six, only
Wall and Mary Hausch, who were
roommates in college, work at the
Hippodrome.
In the beginning, Hausch
worked on costume design with
Wall, mainly because she could
stitch, Hausch joked.
"Since then, she's not only
learned to stitch but she can do
everything else you can imagine,"
she said.
Wall's costumes range from
velvet gowns to a vest with a gray


baby doll sticking out like an ex-
posed womb.
"Sometimes it's not just about
being :.- *. " she said. "It's about
being right,"
That precision happens in her
design room.
From the red dragon head hang-
ing from the ceiling, a piece of her
first costume, to handmade wings
and old, worn fedoras, each corner
is a piece from Wall's history.
The majority of her finished
pieces, though, are in her costume
room in the basement of the Hip-
podrome behind two castle-like
doors sealed by a combination
padlock.
Even with all the costumes she
has created, she knows each piece
is integral to the story. She carries
a phrase with her through all of the
shows and all of her costumes: "Set
an actor free to tell their story."
She takes everything into detail,
from switching different tags on
clothes to making performers think
they're a size smaller to bringing in
eight pairs of shoes to make sure
it fits the actor's foundation just
right. She even tells the little girls
in her favorite show, "A Christmas
Carol," to spin in their dresses to
make sure the fabric twirls just
right. Plus, she said, the little girls
love to do it.
"I love to sit down and talk to
an actor," she said. "No matter
how many times a show has been
done or the parts have been done,
everyone brings something unique
to it."


Students enthusiastic for new sustainability major

Seven courses will be offered at UF this fall as the development of a set of core courses created specifically
for this major.


By GABRIELA ROSIAS
Alligator Contributing Writer


Gators interested in going green now have a new option
available.
UF students will be able to major in Sustainability Studies
starting Fall semester.
Les Thiele, a political science professor at UF and director of
the program, said he began working on this project a number
of years back when a couple of students decided they wanted
to pursue a minor in sustainability studies.
Thiele said he had both the faculty resources and student
support necessary to expand the program to a full-on major.


Students in the sustainability movement are excited about
the opportunity to formally study something that they have
been working on outside of class, said UF student Ashley Pen-
nington, the outreach coordinator for the Office
On of Sustainability and a senior completing the sus-
Campus tainability minor.
"It is a great chance to really learn about it as
opposed to just trying to practice it on our own," she said.
Other schools like Stony Brook University in New York,
University of California at Berkeley and the University of Mm-
nesota have also begun offering similar majors and minors,
Thiele said. He is confident that UF's program is unique be-
cause of the interdisciplinary nature of the curriculum as well


The program is based out of the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences, which allows students to explore sustainability from
a natural science, social science and humanities perspective.
There are seven courses created specifically for the major,
and the faculty is looking to add more courses in the future.
Students can start registering for this major starting Summer
B, and there will be no cap on the number of students allowed
to register. It is possible for students who are in the minor to
use the credits earned to complete the major.
"It's fresh, new and rather original," Thiele said. "It's not
like they're going to take it because it's the sort of thing their
parents took, so it'll be very interesting to see how new stu-
dents react."

Provost urges higher grad rates


Proposes incentives


By JOEY FLECHAS
Alligator Staff Writer

Improved four-year gradu-
ation rates and a movement
toward a more common univer-
sity-wide experience are among
the goals expressed by UF ad-
ministrators at Wednesday's
Board of Trustees meeting at
Lake Wauburg.
Members heard presenta-
tions on the state of the univer-
sity and the vision for the future
at the retreat.
UF Provost Joe Glover said
the university wants to have


freshman-level common cours-
es, meant to be taken by most or
all new first-year students.
He also spoke of the univer-
sity's desire to
boost the four-
year gradua-
tion rate, cur-
rently at 58
percent, and
the six-year
Glover rate, currently
at 82 percent.
"We are, I would say, in the
middle of the pack with respect
to our peers," Glover said.


To improve the rates, he
noted an opportunity to require
students to attend at least one
summer term and the admission
of a 2,000-student cohort to at-
tend the university only during
spring and summer semesters.
Glover also touched on block
tuition as an incentive to move
students toward degrees faster.
Under the policy, the univer-
sity would charge tuition for full-
time students at a flat rate set at
the cost of 15 credits.
The Board of Trustees ap-
proved the measure in Decem-
ber. They agreed to wait a year to
implement the policy, scheduled
to start in fall 2012.

By May 1, life was supposed to get tougher for

UF wireless was going to require security

Computers without anti-virus protection and the

But the system is still not in place.
"[The wireless security checks] were not im-

With Gingrich bid, bar for

GOP nomination lowered
S standing on top of his soapbox in cyberspace, former U.S.
House Speaker Newt Gingrich ,i ..:-,II, announced on
Facebook and Twitter Wednesday his intention to seek
the Republican nomination for President in 2012.
To this we simply say, "LOL."
It's not that we find his method of announcing his political
intentions jocular. In fact, we see the former Georgia congress-
man's use of social networking sites to launch his presidential
campaign as an ingenious strategy. It's the character behind
the text characters that we have trouble taking seriously.
In a field that is likely include two reality TV stars and a
woman who was told by God she needed to run for Congress,
Gingrich looks like Lincoln.
Yet regardless of how languid the crop of GOP presidential
candidates has become, it is insulting to the American voter
that he could be considered a legitimate candidate from a
mainline party given his unflattering past.
There's no question about his ability to wage a formidable
challenge to a Democratic president in a general election, es-
pecially given the resurgence of right-wing fervor seen with-
in this country in the last few years. His political moxie and
swordsmanship make him an attractive candidate for many
conservatives, Republicans and those who have felt scorned
by the Obama administration's inability to deliver its banner
message of "Hope and Change." As a House Speaker, he was
able to lead a Republican charge on Capitol Hill that saw his
party take control of both legislative houses in 1994, a feat that
hadn't been seen since the 1950s. With the right amount of mo-
mentum and financial cannon fire, he could get the keys to
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
For the United States, such a development would be a scary
thing.
While on Capitol Hill, Gingrich went out of his way to
thumb his nose at Democrats. At times, he did it in the pur-
suit of Republican policy. Most times, however, he did so for
no other reason than to politically grandstand, to show the
White House who exactly controlled the lower house. His
unwillingness to work with the Clinton White House during
the federal government shutdown crisis of 1995 shifted the
tides of public opinion against his party as Americans saw the
Speaker as nothing more than a glorified politibrat throwing a
toy store temper tantrum. Given the country's current politi-
cal climate, a Gingrich presidency would act as nothing more
than a blustery tornado of hot air descending upon a burning
trash heap.
If there is one thing that can out-slug his political vanity
in a street fight of sleaze, it's his ethical flexibility. History
will remember Gingrich as the first Speaker to be formally
reprimanded by the House by a vote of 395-28 for his com-
plete disregard for legislative procedure. As one Republican
congressman put it, "Newt has done some things that have
embarrassed House Republicans and have embarrassed the
House. If [the voters] see more of that, they will question our
judgment."
Ya think?
We now call upon the Party of Lincoln to do the right thing
and not give this charlatan of a candidate any more ammuni-
tion. You have a qualified candidate who has a sound fiscal
mind and does not try to cater to extremism. Please do not let
him fall into the jaws of party cannibals who look to feast on
him because of where he worships on Sunday.
Otherwise it will be a huge:( for America.

If he can write for i
About two years ago, I decided to do what millions of
college-aged kids have done since the days when Je-
sus and the Dirty Dozen toured as a traveling family
band: print out a resume, put on the greatest pseudo-smile
Monopoly money can buy and apply for a job.
Wearing an outfit that screamed "Attention everyone,
I'm doing something very, very important today; that's why
I stole this outfit from my father's closet," I walked down to
1105 W. University Ave., home of the Independent Florida
Alligator. They were having their open house and hot damn
wouldn't you know it, the sports section was hiring.
The sports guys didn't know it at the time, but the sec-
ond coming of Al Michaels, the illegitimate love child of
Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser, was about to walk
through the door and lay a smackdown of awesome on
them. I had the metaphor magic of Rick Reilly, the drunk-
uncle-at-Thanksgiving dinner brashness of Woody Paige
and the ocular capabilities of Stuart Scott. I had the total
package plus the "fuzzy" channels grandpa watches at 2
a.m.
I stuck to the playbook during my interview, an epic
man-flirt session with three guys in a back room office. I sat
up straight, kept my composure and didn't tell any Helen
Keller jokes - not even the one about her pet dog! In one
15-minute sit-down, I spat out more stats than Bing Cros-
by's kids spat out teeth. "We good," I told myself.
But here's where the story goes Howard Dean. About 48
hours later, right after I had recovered from a weekend of
celebrating my forthcoming coronation, I got this email:
"CJ - Thanks for applying for a position with Alligator

Before I could put on "The Note-

sob while I took scoops of Ben and
Jerry's "Chunky Monkey" to the
C.J. Pruner face, I received another email, this
Editorial Notebook time from the Alligator news desk.
Editorsal Notebook They had received my "second-
string" application and were willing
to give me a shot at some basic news
stories, to be done for nothing more than an opportunity to
get another one and a pat on the back if I was a good boy.
My first byline came in a story about a sitcom launched by a
UF improve group. It appeared right underneath the week's
weather forecast.
But I kept at it. Over the next four semesters, I got to do
things that don't normally come up in Friday night barstool
talk. I got to meet everyone from city commissioners to U.S.
congressmen, meth addicts to Mormon missionaries and
everyone else in between. I've had the most bizarre, twisted
definition of fun one can have with their pants on and a
BAC clocking in at zero.
Now, as the editor-in-chief of the largest student news-

sexually repressed ex-nun with linebacker shoulders, that
he wouldn't amount to anything, invite you to come by this

Letters to the Editor
local resident celebrates death
of bin Laden, calls it historic
moment
We got him: a man whose evil
changed the world and defined a
young generation. He was a fig-
urehead of evil, and he was the
serpent in the garden. On that day
in September, our vision of evil was
changed from the likes of Captain
Hook to the realities of true unfor-
giving atrocities. Our young gen-
eration experienced more real death
and more real fear than any young
person should ever have to endure.
Almost ten years after his most in-
famous attack on innocent lives, the
people who he affected most, the
generation of children who lost their


loved ones and lost their innocence,
can celebrate for the first time in
their lives.
It not the end of the war, but it
is a momentous step. It's the death
of Darth Vader. It's the surrender
at Appomattox. It's the end of the
movie. It's the accomplished goal.
There is still work to do. There
will still be scraps to clean up. But
when your grandchildren read the
history books, this will be the day
they remember. This is the day you'll
remember. This is the last chapter of
the story, and now we are just writ-
ing epilogue.
Thank you to the men and wom-
en serving this country, many of
whom are our friends and our peers,


who dedicated and gave their lives
for this day.

In wake of tornadoes, Tuscaloo-
sa woman asks Gator Nation
for help
As most of you know, a devastat-
ing storm system swept across the
South on April 27, 2011, bringing
with it some of the most destructive
tornadoes in our nation's history.
Tuscaloosa, Ala., home to the Uni-
versity of Alabama, was one of the
most severely impacted areas. As of


May 1, 2011, 40 Tuscaloosa residents
had been found dead, with over 350
still missing.
As we move forward from the
initial aftermath, Tuscaloosa needs
your help.
We all feel the rivalry between
the University of Alabama and the
University of Florida. And come
- .. I.rl: ,I season, we will yell and jeer
at each other just as loudly as ever
But right now, Alabama is strug-
gling. Without support, our town
will not be able to recover. We need
our fellow SEC supporters to come
to our aid.
If you can give nothing, please
pray. Pray for those who have lost
loved ones, pray for those who are


still missing and pray for those of
us who have lost our belongings.
My apartment is gone, but I am still
alive. I pray daily for those still in
need.
If you are able to give financially,
please consider giving to the West
Alabama chapter of the Red Cross.
Their main office is located in Tus-
caloosa, and they have been on the
streets daily since the tornado. You
can donate directly to the West Ala-
bama chapter through http: / / aprils-

Thank you for your continued
thoughts and support. Let's prove to
the nation what the SEC can do.

Summer music festivals offer something for everyone


By KELLY RICHARD
avenue writer


Although some music festivals like Coachel-
la and SunFest have already come and gone,
there are still plenty of opportunities duringthe
nextfew months to hear tunes like "Howlin' For
You" by The Black Keys and catch up-and-com-
ing acts like Grouplove and Dom.
While the festival circuit in the U.S. isn't
as highly regarded as the festivals in Europe,
there are still quite a few that are worthy of
note. Here's our guide to the summer festival
scene.

Hangout Music Festival

* Headliners include: Paul Simon, Foo Fight-
ers, Widespread Panic, My Morning Jacket,

Krazy Fest

* Headliners include: Against Me!, 7 Seconds,

Krazy Fest offers a large number of punk

times that never overlap, Krazy Fest is one of
the more unique festival experiences. For more
information visit krazy-fest.com.

DirecTV premiers new home service


By NICOLE LA HOZ
avenue writer

With DVD and movie theater revenues down, DirecTV is try-
ingto alleviate tight sales by going up.
The largest provider of digital TV entertainment services
launched Home Premiere, a new video-on-demand service, in
late April.
Home Premiere offers movies for $29.99 on DirecTV Cin-
ema at least 60 days after playing in theaters.
Home Premiere marks the first time major studio movies
are available at that moment and price, according to the Los
Angeles Times. "Just Go With It," the first Home Premiere mov-
ie released, was available 69 days after showing in theaters.
DirecTV's website said Home Premiere movies give people
convenience; they can enjoy releases months before they're
available on Netflix or DVD. Once purchased, Home Premiere
movies have unlimited plays for 48 hours.
While it might please families, Home Premiere has filmmak-
ers and theater owners rethinking business strategies.
Twenty-three directors, includingJames Cameron and Peter
Jackson, issued an open letter against the video-on-demand
service in April. It asked studios how Home Premiere would af-
fectthe movie industry.
"We ask that our studio partners do not rashly undermine
the current - and successful -system of releasing films in a se-
quential distribution window that encourages movie lovers to
see films in the optimum, and most profitable, exhibition arena:
the movie theaters of America," the letter said.
Derek Chang who oversees Home Premiere, said in a


Bloomberg article Home Premiere would help theaters be-
cause they make little revenue two months after a release.
However, Chief Executive Officer of Cinemark Holding Alan
Stock told Bloomberg theaters' revenues are threatened by
shortening cinema time. On-demand movies premiere 90 to
120 days after a movie opens.
Cinemark, as a result, isn't screening trailers of movies
shown on TV sooner than 90 days. It might also follow Regency
Theaters, which doesn't show films breaking the 90-day win-
dow; it pulled "Just Go With It" from theaters.
Paramount Pictures is not participating, and Walt Disney
Studios is weighing its options. Warner Brothers, Universal
Pictures, Fox Searchlight and Sony Pictures have al-
On ready partnered with Home Premiere.
Q Jossie Barroso, a fourth-year telecommunica-
tions student at UF, said mere patience would defeat
Home Premiere's premise.
"It seems too expensive when you can just wait a little lon-
ger to rent it for a cheaper price," she said.
If the $30 price isn't embraced, Chang said rental fees
might go down.
"We're testing a price point and testing a window in the
early days of this product, and we'll see how it takes," Chang
told Bloomberg
However, second-year UF biology student Nick Harris said it
will always come down to price. Home Premiere may never pay
off for college students.
"Thirty dollars to rent a movie when I can watch it in the-
aters two months before, or buy it a month later for $10?" he
said. "It doesn't make sense."

"Hesher" brings creativity to Hollywood


By ANDY MAROON
avenue columnist

Hollywood needs some new ideas.
The summer of 2011 is upon us, and itseems
moviegoers will be subject to a good helping of
continuations, adaptations and remakes. Be-
tween mid-April and August, there are foursuper-
hero movies, two prequels, 10 sequels and even
more movies based off of books or TV shows.
Hollywood needs "Hesher."
"Hesher" is the directorial debut of Spencer
Susser, an up-and-coming Australian filmmaker
whose resume consists of mostly commercials
and music videos.
Written by Susser and David Mich6d, "Hesh-
er" boasts an exceptionally strong cast for a
director's debut. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Natalie
Portman and Rainn Wilson take on starring roles
while audiences are introduced to teenage sen-
sation Devin Brochu.
The story of Hesher (Gordon-Levitt) follows
that of the standard "traveling angel" tale, but in-
stead of a halo and white robes, he dons horns,
crappytattoos and a dirty Metallica T-shirt.
The film is seen through the eyes of 13-year-
old T.J. (Brochu) as he struggles with bullies, his
crush and the death of his mother. When T.J. ac-
cidentally ruins Hesher's hideout, the drifter de-


cides to take up residence in T.J.'s garage. T.J.'s
father, Paul (Wilson), apathetic with grief after
losing his wife, does nothing to get rid of Hesh-
er. Restricting himself to the couch, Paul does
nothingto help T.J. with his problems, so Hesher
takes it upon himself to do so.
Using a combination of fire, harsh language
and metal music, Hesher helps T.J. overcome his
heartache and grow into a man - or at least at-
tempts to.
What originally interested me most about
"Hesher" was its director, Spencer Susser. Hol-
lywood is in need of fresh ideas, and Susser
seems to be full of them.
My curiosity in the film only heightened once
casting choices were announced. Gordon-Levitt
has been an all-star the past year, starring in
Christopher Nolan's "Inception" and recently
landing a role in the upcoming "The Dark Knight
Rises."
Wilson, most widely known as DwightSchrute
of "The Office," makes no attempt at humor as
he portrays a heavily medicated, depressed
father. There's always something interesting
about watching comedy actors try their hand at
drama.
Natalie Portman also continues her domi-
nance of the big screen with yet another versa-

New UF amn

By SHELBY WEBB
avenue writer

As I sat in the University Police Department's
"classroom," watching a slide show jam-packed
with gory images of drunk driving accidents and
roads littered with mangled bodies, I felt like
something wasn't right.
Sure, I can understand why people who were
arrested or cited for serious alcohol-related in-
fractions might have to suffer through this Pow-
erPoint from hell, but I had violated the alcohol
section of the University Student Code of Con-
duct-and I wasn't even drunk.
But my friend was, and I took her back to her
dorm where I thought she could get some assis-
tance. Instead of help, we both got slapped with
a hold on our records, a mandatory alcohol semi-
nar and a meetingwith UF's judicial board.
Luckily for all of you, UF has adopted a new
policy waiving student disciplinary action under
certain conditions. This was done in the hopes
that all students will call for medical help for

themselves or their friends during alcohol, drug
or other health emergencies.
UF's new Medical Amnesty Policy, known as
MAP, aims to remove unnecessary concerns
about disciplinary action for students seeking
assistance in response to serious or life-threat-
ening incidents related to alcohol or drugs.
"We hope students will think about safety
first, so they can get medical attention first and
not worry about the conse-
quences until later," said
Jeanna Mastrodicasa, a
member of the Campus Alco-
hol and Drug Education Policy
Committee that put forward
the proposal.
Safety is something to
worry about when drinking. Even though the poli-
cy is only a few weeks old, students have already
been buzzing about it.
"I think students won't be afraid to get the
help they need with this new policy. It makes
student safety a priority, which is how it always

frumpy hipster ways should be enough to get any
"Garden State" fan into a theater.
With an all-star cast and an enthusiastic,
young director, "Hesher" has the potential to be
a breakthrough indie-hit, snaking its way through
the nation's theaters like "Napoleon Dynamite"
and "Juno" once did.
"Hesher" sees a limited release on May
13. Theaters showing the film can be found on
hesherthemovie.com.

it's back to basics

a shield, a princess to save and
evil to conquer. As the morning sun
rose over Hyrule Field and I set out
from my childhood home, having
already slayed the first of many foul
bosses, I knew that my dream had
been fulfilled. Up until this point
gamers never had such a huge
three-dimensional world to explore
with untold wonders waitingto be
found.
I explored every inch of this
world on the back of my noble
steed Epona, finding every Heart
Piece, ammo upgrade and Golden
Skulltula simply because they were
waiting to be found.
From the day this game was
released, it became a legend unto
itself, and legends never die.


with approval

should be," sophomore political science and mu-
sic major Collin Thompson said.
So who qualifies for amnesty?
"It's a case-by-case basis; we try to use com-
mon sense," said Mastrodicasa. "If a student
needed legitimate medical attention for a drug
or alcohol emergency, they would probably get
amnesty. But if there's someone who might be
doingthings like this five times in a row, we might
consider taking some action."
The policy does not extend to the dorms or
student housing, which have their own rules ac-
cordingto Mastrodicasa. So even if the university
grants you amnesty, you might still suffer some
consequences from student housing.
"Yes, you'll still have to meet with someone,
but in reality, what's important there is that they
get the help they need," she said.
And I agree. That night I took my drunk friend
to her dorm, she did receive medical attention.
And I would have sat through 500 more grue-
some slide shows to get her the help she need-
ed.

T roughout my time as a "music critic," I've had my fair share
of incredible moments - the sort of experiences I used to
dream about as a music fan.
In a little more than a year, the time I've spent as an amateur
music journalist, I've gotten to meet bands I idolized when I was in
middle school. I've played sports with musicians whose records I
spun endlessly on my first iPod in high school. I've become friends
with up-and-coming artists who will eat a burrito with me now, but
forget me when they become much more well-known one day.
Aside from all that, the most enjoyable part of doing my job is
still bringing new content to readers and introducing people to new
music. But all of that behind-the-scenes action has made me feel
as though I'm a part of something notable here in 2011.
Every summer, as the air gets hotter and the weather more
humid, music fans everywhere turn to that summertime music -
the soaring vocals and huge hooks found in songs like New Found

card's "Ocean Avenue."
You know those songs from way back
when you were in middle or maybe even
elementary school. Those songs were
popular on MTV (when MTV played music
videos) back in 2003.
. Unfortunately, the pop-punk scene took

Twitte @hsea of awful bands donning neon-colored
clothes threatened to drown a genre that
was once filled with buddingyoung men writing angsty songs about
girls, their best friends and everything else life had to offer.
Well, at the turn of the decade, a noteworthy tide began to turn
as certain bands rose up as the cream of the crop in a new golden
age of pop-punk. In 2009-10, we saw for the first time in quite a
few years a group of bands that toured together, released music

scene.
Last week, I had the privilege of spending a couple of days with
my good friends in The Wonder Years, Fireworks, Make Do And
Mend and LivingWith Lions duringtwo of the Florida dates on their
Manscout Jamboree tour.
What I saw was not just two days of honest, do-it-yourself tour-
ing and amazing live sets, but a group of about 30 people who
treated each other like brothers.
During those two days, I realized again what I've already come
to know as fact: that we really are witnessing a high point in this
genre.
While mainstream music continues to churn out predictable
catchy singles and manufactured "musicians," the pop-punk un-
derground scene is thriving on its own.
So as summer grinds along, try out some of the new wave of
pop-punk instead of the new Lady Gaga single. Whether you de-
cide to be a part of it or not, pop-punk is rising again.


The Whigs set to rock Common Grounds with DIY ethos


By KATHLEEN BOYLE
avenue writer


What do you get when you cross fuzzy south-
ern rock, rhythmic hooks and brash garage grit?
Answer: The Whigs. Vocalist and guitarist
Parker Gispert, drummer Julian Dorio and bass-
ist Timothy Deaux have been stirring the rock pot
since 2002 and are currently touring the south-
ern states in support of their latest record "In the
Dark."
Delivering a cohesion of infectious sounds,
The Whigs are a gnarly three-piece outfit from
Athens, Ga., who have released three albums,


toured the world with bands such as The Black
Keys and Kings of Leon and been described by
RollingStone magazine in 2006 as "perhaps the
best unsigned band in America."
On Friday the 13th, The Whigs will make their
mark at Common Grounds at9 p.m.
After spending a good portion of 2010 and
early 2011 touring Europe, The Whigs are look-
ing forward to spending the next week in more
familiar territory in the U.S. The band will be
headlining dates throughout Florida before head-
ing back over to the U.K. as the supporting actfor
Kings of Leon.


Deaux mused over the benefits of traveling
the States, taking on a tone of patriotic nostal-
gia as he reflected upon the pros of returning to
America.
"It's been great to be back
home and touring the states
again. You know, the good ole'
U.S. interstate system with
truck stops and Waffle Hous-
es at every exit," he said.
Beginning in 2002, The
Whigs understood the necessity for a young band
to tour, so they began playing weekend shows in


New York City to gain exposure.
"It is very important for a young band to break
out of their hometown and find exposure outside
of their regional market," Deaux said. "Los Ange-
les and New York are the two largest markets in
the country, and New York just happens to be a
lot closer to Athens."
While The Whigs have come a long way on
their DIY ethos, Deaux explained the band is still
hungry.
"You have to maintain that desire and inten-
sity to carry through to the next stage. You have
to stay hungry."

UF BASEBALL

Maddox's sixth-inning blast powers Florida over UNF


By MATT WATTS
Alligator Staff Writer
mwatts@alligator org

Jacksonville native Austin
Maddox likes playing against his
hometown rival North Florida.
The Gators first baseman
went 4 for 4 and drove in five
runs in UF's 9-3 win over UNF
last season, and on Wednesday,
the sophomore hit a two-run
home run to lift No. 8 Florida
(37-12) over the Ospreys (25-22)
4-1 at McKethan Stadium.
"He's one of those guys that
when he comes to the plate that
there's always a threat that he's
going to do what he did tonight,"
UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan said.
Maddox crushed a blast to
left in the sixth, but the homer
was just his third of the season
and first since April 1 against
Tennessee.
"Every day is a new day and
you can't really look at last year
and think you're going to do the
same thing this year," Maddox
said.
"You just have to kind of


take every game one game at a
time."
Maddox went 2 for 4 with
one run and two RBIs and said
Ospreys pitcher Joe lorio hung a
: .. i. 11 for his left field blast.
Maddox turned on the pitch
and sent it over the bleachers
and into the parking lot, just
creeping around the foul pole.
"It's pretty rare (that I see
pitches over the plate)," he said.
"But I'm not going to make ex-
cuses for myself."
After hitting 17 home runs
as a freshman, UF coach Kevin
O'Sullivan said Maddox has got-
ten a bad rap this season for his
shrinking power numbers
"A lot of times he's stung the
ball, or hit it on the nose, or right
at people," O'Sullivan said.
"It was good to see him hit a
home run there and separate us
a little bit."
Junior Alex Panteliodis got
the midweek start for the Gators,
tossing three innings and allow-
ing just one hit and no walks on
SEE BASEBALL, PAGE 20


Max Reed/ Alligator Staff
Sophomore Austin Maddox knocked his first homer since April I against Tennessee. The first baseman hit
just his third long ball of the season in the sixth-inning of UF's 4-1 win over North Florida.


Postin looks to start


fast at SEC Outdoors


By JOHN BOOTHE
Alligator Writer

Jeremy Postin's opening hammer
throw today at the Southeastern Confer-
ence Outdoor Championships could be
the start of something special.
After winning the 2011 SEC Indoor
Championships in late February, the
No. 2 Gators men's track and field team
has a chance to sweep both conference
meets, something it hasn't done since
1987.
With one toss in Athens, Ga., Pos-
tin hopes to set the tone for the Gators,
grabbing an early lead in his lone event
over the next four days of competition.
"It's really important, because we're
going to lead off the meet against three


other good hammer throwers with [No.
3] LSU and [No. 14] Georgia teams, who
we're going to be competing with the
entire time," Postin said.
The sophomore currently holds the
third-longest throw in
the SEC this season,
just behind the Tigers'
Michael Lauro and
the Bulldogs' Justin
Welch.
At the indoor meet
Postin earlier this year, Pos-
tin said he was disap-
pointed with how Florida's poor throws
put the team in an early hole, forcing
the runners to make up the difference
later on.

Bush works to end slump,


break home run drought


* THE SENIOR HASN'T HIT A
LONG BALL SINCE APRIL 23
AGAINST ALABAMA.

By BRYAN HOLT
Alligator Writer

Tim Walton is always the first person
at Pressly Stadium.
But when Florida's coach showed
up at a time he could only describe as
"early, early" before Saturday's noon
contest against Tennessee, he was not
alone.
In the batting cage was Megan Bush
- Southeastern Conference career
home run queen and current owner of a
five-game hitless slide.
"The only way I know how to get out
of a slump is to keep hitting and keep
working and seeing more pitches," the
senior first baseman said. "I think that's
what it's all about."
Since knocking her 20th homer of

When the UF men's tennis
team hosts an NCAA Regional
this weekend, it hopes to find its
early postseason momentum.
While Florida struggled dur-
ing the regular season, espe-
cially in close matches, the No.
8 Gators (18-8) are now tasked
with the difficulty of backing
up their success after winning a
conference title.
After a magical run to cap-
ture the Southeastern Confer-
ence Tournament Champi-
onship, UF has lodged itself
back into the ranks of national
powerhouses looking to make
a deep run in the NCAA Tour-
nament.
"We definitely felt momen-
tum during the SEC Tourna-
ment," coach Andy Jackson
said. "We were scared of Ar-
kansas, gained a little momen-
tum after that win. There were
more people against Missis-
sippi State, a top-20 team, and
even more people against Ten-
nessee, a national champion-
ship contender.
And even on Easter Sunday,
we had probably our biggest
crowd of the year against Ken-
tucky."
Jackson said his team thrives
while playing at home, and the
Gators always have the goal of
hosting an NCAA Regional.
But maintaining momen-
tum from a tournament that
concluded on April 24 won't be
easy.
"The guys played well but
a lot of it was feeding off the
people in the stands, something
that we're grateful for," Jack-
son said. "The thing with the
momentum is that now we've
had three weeks off. We've got
more confidence, but we're like

Pelphrey reunites


with Donovan, UF


* THE FORMER ARKAN-
SAS COACH SAID FLORIDA
WAS THE ONLY PLACE HE
WOULD TAKE A JOB AS AN
ASSISTANT.

By MATT WATTS
Alligator Staff Writer
mwatts@alligatororg

John Pelphrey knows Florida.
One of three new Gators bas-
ketball assistant coaches, Pelphrey
is actually a former UF assistant
making a return to Gainesville af-
ter a nine-year absence.
A heralded recruiter, Pelphrey
brought Mike Miller to UF and
was an assistant during the Gators'
Final Four run of 2000 - a time he
called "magical." Pelphrey's two
children were born in Gainesville,
and he helped coach Billy Dono-
van lay the foundation for the pro-
gram's current run of success.
During his introductory press
conference Tuesday, Pelphrey
repeatedly emphasized that
Gainesville is a special place and
returning to Florida was a unique
situation.
"(UF) is the only place I'd be
doing this," Pelphrey said, spe-
cifically referencing coaching as an
assistant.
"I think because it's (Donovan),
because all my kids were born
here, this is a safe place. I don't see
myself having taken this opportu-
nity anywhere else."
Pelphrey was a head coach at
South Alabama and Arkansas af-
ter leaving Florida in 2002.
But Pelphrey was fired as coach
of the Razorbacks in March. And
shortly after, Larry Shyatt left Flor-
ida for ' . . .in- Richard Pitino
bolted to Louisville and Rob Lani-
er returned to Texas, opening the
door for Pelphrey and Donovan to
reunite.
"Everything changed and really
the first person I hired was John,"
Donovan said. "I felt like I really
needed somebody that knew me,
that knew Florida, that knew the
way to do things."
The 42-year-old is one of three


new coaches on UF's staff, joining
Norm Roberts, former St. John's
head coach, and Matt McCall, for-
mer FAU assistant coach.
Familiarity is one of the big rea-
sons Pelphrey is back on UF's staff.
He played at Kentucky from 1989-
92 when Donovan was an assistant
and was a part of Donovan's staff
at Marshall from 1994-96 before
-.. .. ,, him to Florida.
Pelphrey said he didn't pursue
head-coaching jobs after being let
go because the time between his
firing and Donovan's offer was so
soon.
Returning to an assistant's role
can be a challenge, but Pelphrey
said he's focused solely on playing
his role on the staff and being the
best he can be for Donovan and
the players.
"Some of that other stuff, I'm
not going to look at that or focus on
those things because that's going
to take me away from doing what
I need to do," Pelphrey said. "This
opportunity is certainly a wonder-
ful opportunity. It's a blessing and
it needs to be treated that way."
While neither Donovan nor
Pelphrey envisioned a future re-
union, Pelphrey said he knows
it's the right decision. And seeing
all the familiar faces in his return
to Gainesville has made the transi-
hon easier, Pelphrey said.
"If you know more than five
people in a place, you probably
have a pretty good feel for it," he
said. "I can name off a lot more
than five. Nobody seems to leave
Florida, that's how special it is."
ETC: According to Donovan,
forwards Erik Murphy and Cody
Larson remain suspended indefi-
nitely despite a report that charges
against them have been reduced.
Donovan said he would continue
to allow the legal process to play
itself out before making any deci-
sions about their future. "Once it
gets resolved and once I found out
what the resolution is, then I think
I can react," Donovan said. "Un-
til that happens, right now those
guys are going to be suspended,
but it's not like there's a whole lot
going on right now to suspend
them from."


UF FOOTBALL

Blakely to transfer, cites displeasure with offense


BRYAN HOLT
Alligator Writer

Mike Blakely will not play a
down of -....r::II for the Florida
Gators.
The early i, -,. .11. .. freshman run-
ning back announced Tuesday he
will transfer from UF after sitting
out all of spring practice recovering
from arthroscopic surgery on his left
shoulder.
Blakely committed under Urban
Meyer but remained loyal to UF
when Will Muschamp took over -


until he saw the new regime's on-
field product.
"I just didn't like the pro-style
offense once I saw what it was all
about," Blakely said.
The former Manatee High stand-
out said he is used to being "the
back" on the field, and said he feels
he can start immediately some-
where else instead of waiting in line
at Florida.
Had he stayed, Blakely would've
been competing for playing time in
a crowded backfield featuring Chris
Rainey, Jeff Demps, Mike Gillislee


and Mack Brown. Blakely said it's
clear that Charlie Weis' pro-style at-
tack is only going to utilize one or
two backs, and he
would prefer to
play for a spread
offense.
"Mike has
come to the con-
clusion that the
University of
Blakely Florida is not
where he wants
to play ..rl :,1 " Muschamp said in
an official statement. "We wish him


the best of luck."
Blakely informed the Gators head
coach of his decision in a very short
phone conversation.
"(Muschamp) asked, 'You're
going to transfer?'" Blakely said. "I
said 'Yeah,' and that was it."
Blakely said transferring is some-
thing he thought about for a long
time. It was clear to him for most of
the spring that UF wasn't where he
wanted to be.
During his high school career, the
5-foot-9, 198-pound Blakely was an
Army All-American and was rated


the No. 6 running back in the nation
by Rivals. com.
He is not yet sure where he will
transfer, but it won't be the South-
eastern Conference - at least not
immediately.
"[UF] told me I can't transfer
anywhere in the SEC, so I'm lean-
ing toward going [to junior college]
and then coming back to the SEC,"
Blakely said.
The freshman is the third player
to transfer from Florida in less than a
month, joining wide receivers Java-
res McRoy and Chris Dunkley.

Holloway said throwers are primed for hot start


TRACK, from page 18


"I think all of our runners are going to do the best they
can, but if we start them off with a deficit they're going to
be thinking a little differently," he said.
"So if we can help them out and win throws, they're go-
ing to go out there with a lot more confidence and perform
better."
Unlike Postin, sprinter Terrell Wilks is slated for a
workmanlike load over the last three days with six sprints
and relays to run.
If he falters in an early event, the one-time SEC Cham-
pion will likely get a chance to redeem himself later in the
meet, but Wilks is still hoping the throwers can grab the
early momentum.
"One person can spark another, and then that sparks
the whole team," Wilks said.
"A quick start on Friday is very, very important... [the


throwers] are going to set the tone for the weekend. If we
have a negative tone, we have to work around it, but with
a positive tone, it makes it a lot easier to finish the week-
end."
UF coach Mike Holloway thinks his throwers are primed
for a big weekend as Postin (hammer throw), freshman
David Triassi (hammer) and sophomore Stipe Zunic (jav-
elin) have all won in the last three weeks.
S "That's always in our plans to be at our
best at this time of the year," Holloway said.
"Coach [Steve] Lemke and the rest of my
Track staff, we're all on the same page as far as
that's concerned. Steve does a wonderful job
of getting them ready when it counts."
UF's unranked women's team will also be in Athens
going for its third title in three years after winning the
2010 SEC Indoor Championships and 2009 SEC Outdoor
Championships.

the field twice in seven games.
"I probably tried close to 30 bats
[Monday]," Bush said. "I know what
I'm looking for now. I know what
length. I know what weight."
The senior from Anaheim Hills, Ca-
hf., refuses to blame the bats for her
slump and said she is not willing to
"change too much" to break out of it.
Bush is hoping for a fresh start dur-
ing postseason play, and the senior

Once again, the left-hander's day was cut
short on a pitch count, but Panteliodis had his

After the game, Panteliodis said his hip

The plethora of pitchers was a story of the

trotted out seven hurlers of his own.
Lefty Tommy Organ got the starting nod
and went 2.0 innings, giving up three hits, an
earned run and striking out two in 29 pitches
before being pulled for Brandan Keen.
But no amount of UNF pitchers could stop
the hot-hitting UF bats.
Florida catcher Mike Zunino extended his
burning hit-streak to 13 games with a single
to center in the third.
Zunino is hitting .471 (25-53) with 19 RBIs
and 11 extra-base hits during the span.
Right fielder Preston Tucker also extended
his hitting streak to 13 games after a 1 for 3
showing with two RBIs and a run scored.
Tucker started the scoring for Florida in
the first with a sacrifice fly to center, scoring
leadoff hitter Bryson Smith.
The Gators plated a run again in the
third after Zunino stole second, advanced to
third on a wild pitch and crossed home on a
groundout to second from Tucker.
UNF got on the board in the sixth after
Andrew Karmeris led off the inning with a
standup double to left off of Tommy Toledo.
He scored on a base hit from Kyle Dahl for

Machen spoke of budget cuts, potential incoming freshmen and a new innovation hub for entrepreneurs. grams. Rather than cutting personnel or programs, the university will look to other methods to reduce the budget. For example, UF is discussing plans to increase tuition, rearrange employee benefits and use money typically reserved for university purchases toward existing programs. The state legislature approved an 8 percent tuition increase, and UF plans to bridge the budget gap by seeking the Board of Governors' approval to increase tuition by the maximum of 15 percent. Students' pockets will take an additional hit in the fall as Florida legislators decided to cut Bright Futures scholarships by about 20 percent. Students aren't the only ones affected by the state's cutbacks. Under another bill passed by the legislature, state employees will be required to contribute 3 percent of their salaries to their retirement plans beginning July 1. Machen said he sees this as an additional budget cut for UF employees and is looking into benefit changes that may allow the university to compensate for this reduction in salary. He also addressed the legislature's approval of a new program that will give incoming students the option to take oncampus classes only during the spring and summer semesters. The program, to be implemented in January 2013, could bring up to 2,000 new students to the university. In addition, UF is looking into actions such as expanding distance-learning programs and increasing out-of-state student enrollment as part of a three-year plan to generate revenue in case state funding doesn't rebound. "We're not assuming that it's going to get a lot better," Machen said. "We're just hoping it doesn't get a lot worse."

Students swap garb for coin By JASMINE EARLS Alligator Contributing Writer Students in Gainesville are reaping the benefits of cutting their wardrobes as a number of consignment businesses in Gainesville are offering students an opportunity to dump off their old clothes, collect some cash and shop all at the same time. For local owners of such stores, the summer months have seen a spike in business. "The summer season is the busiest time of year for us," said Alicia Bonamie, store manager for Plato's Closet. "We've been swamped for like a month." Cendra Gire, owner of Cecile's, a local consignment shop, said the economy might be to blame for the influx of garments. "With the economy in the position it's in, we see a lot more people selling clothes than in the past," Gire said. "Some need the money for books, electric bills, and some just want to get rid of their stuff." Students bring in their freshly laundered apparel. The store clerk checks the clothing for holes. If it passes inspection, the student walks away with cash. On average, for one or two garbage bags of clothes, a student can walk out with anything from $25 to $75. "We hear the stories, and a lot of them are going out and just want something new," she said. Ryan Ramezani, 23-year-old biology student, said he didn't spend Around any money in the store, but Gainesville walked away with padded pockets. "I went in, let them look through it and walked away with 75 bucks," Ramezani said. "That was the easiest 75 dollars I ever made." The influx of students coming in to trade their old gear for monetary gain has prompted the store to expand. The new Plato's Closet will be located on 34th Street and University Ave. and will open before Fall semester.

4, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 12, 2011 New UF program: attend only in spring, summer 0 ADMINISTRATORS EXPECT 2,000 STUDENTS TO PARTICIPATE. By JESSICA KEGU Alligator Contributing Writer Since childhood, summer meant it was time for leisure and fall meant it was time to go back to school. UF is turning that on its head. The program, scheduled to begin in Spring 2013, aims to attract 2,000 students to the university. Students in the program are limited to on-campus enrollment during the Spring and Summer semesters for their four years at UF. During the fall semester, they will only be allowed to take online courses or internships for credit. The measures are a way the university can admit more students without overcrowding the already jam-packed Fall semester. "Half of the 29,000 applications we received were plenty qualified," UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said. "We just have a limited number of seats to offer." Students do not currently receive Bright Futures scholarship money during summer. The bill makes Bright Futures available to students participating in this program during spring and summer, just not fall. Sikes noted that this would open up internship and study abroad opportunities for these students. There are still many details to work out before anything can be implemented, Sikes said. "We just have a limited number of seats to offer." Janine Sikes UF Spokeswoman She said students should not be suffer from lack of class availability. "Students should be able to take as many courses as they need to take in the same way as any other student would during the fall and spring to graduate on time," Sikes said. "We've been conditioned since we were children that school starts in the fall," Sikes said, "but this is an entirely different approach." Sikes said that students would still be eligible to purchase football tickets as long as they were enrolled in online classes or an internship. While this is good news for prospective Gators, not all UF students are thrilled about the new program. Some, like Deanna Pinzon, think that despite the opportunity to be a part of the Gator nation, these students won't be getting the total package. "They would be half-Gators because they're only getting half the experience." Hippodrome founder dresses the stage's finest By HANNAH WINSTON Alligator Writer Marilyn Wall has dressed hundreds of actors who have performed on the Hippodrome State Theater's stage. But one of her favorite stars to work with was an alien. When her three sons, Marcos, Miguel and Carly, were growing up in Gainesville, she would go into their classrooms and have art class, create plays and get the kids in touch with their artistic sides. There, she noticed a little boy who was made fun of. So she wrote a play about him. His classmates loved him after. "He was a star for a day," she said. 1-A nuc/ mia-f aa 1 Costume designer Marilyn Wall poses while mending an intricately dressed mannequin at the Hippodrome Wednesday afternoon. She started as a costume designer at 22, but she couldn't stitch. She had never even stepped in a costume shop before she helped start the Hippodrome, now located at 25 S.E. 2nd Place in downtown Gainesville. A year after graduating from UF with a degree in theater, Wall and five other friends came back to Gainesville to start a theater. Pooling together about $3,000 from a year of work in 1973, the group was able to rent an old 7-Eleven on the condition that the three men in the group cut their hair. The six artists did everything for the shows: design the sets, get supplies, direct, act and create the costumes. Wall dabbled in all of it. In 1979, the theater moved to the old Federal Building that had been used as a post office and courtroom. It has been a staple for Gainesville art since. "I'm amazed sometimes when I walk in here, the impact it's had on the community," she said. Out of the original six, only Wall and Mary Hausch, who were roommates in college, work at the Hippodrome. In the beginning, Hausch worked on costume design with Wall, mainly because she could stitch, Hausch joked. "Since then, she's not only learned to stitch but she can do everything else you can imagine," she said. Wall's costumes range from velvet gowns to a vest with a gray baby doll sticking out like an exposed womb. "Sometimes it's not just about being pretty," she said. "It's about being right," That precision happens in her design room. From the red dragon head hanging from the ceiling, a piece of her first costume, to handmade wings and old, worn fedoras, each corner is a piece from Wall's history. The majority of her finished pieces, though, are in her costume room in the basement of the Hippodrome behind two castle-like doors sealed by a combination padlock. Even with all the costumes she has created, she knows each piece is integral to the story. She carries a phrase with her through all of the shows and all of her costumes: "Set an actor free to tell their story." She takes everything into detail, from switching different tags on clothes to making performers think they're a size smaller to bringing in eight pairs of shoes to make sure it fits the actor's foundation just right. She even tells the little girls in her favorite show, "A Christmas Carol," to spin in their dresses to make sure the fabric twirls just right. Plus, she said, the little girls love to do it. "I love to sit down and talk to an actor," she said. "No matter how many times a show has been done or the parts have been done, everyone brings something unique to it." Students enthusiastic for new sustainability major Seven courses will be offered at UF this fall as the development of a set of core courses created specifically for this major. By GABRIELA ROSIAS Alligator Contributing Writer Gators interested in going green now have a new option available. UF students will be able to major in Sustainability Studies starting Fall semester. Les Thiele, a political science professor at UF and director of the program, said he began working on this project a number of years back when a couple of students decided they wanted to pursue a minor in sustainability studies. Thiele said he had both the faculty resources and student support necessary to expand the program to a full-on major. Students in the sustainability movement are excited about the opportunity to formally study something that they have been working on outside of class, said UF student Ashley Pennington, the outreach coordinator for the Office On of Sustainability and a senior completing the susVCim pUS tainability minor. "It is a great chance to really learn about it as opposed to just trying to practice it on our own," she said. Other schools like Stony Brook University in New York, University of California at Berkeley and the University of Minnesota have also begun offering similar majors and minors, Thiele said. He is confident that UF's program is unique because of the interdisciplinary nature of the curriculum as well The program is based out of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, which allows students to explore sustainability from a natural science, social science and humanities perspective. There are seven courses created specifically for the major, and the faculty is looking to add more courses in the future. Students can start registering for this major starting Summer B, and there will be no cap on the number of students allowed to register. It is possible for students who are in the minor to use the credits earned to complete the major. "It's fresh, new and rather original," Thiele said. "It's not like they're going to take it because it's the sort of thing their parents took, so it'll be very interesting to see how new students react."

THURSDAY, MAY 12, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Provost urges higher grad rates Proposes incentives By JOEY FLECHAS Alligator Staff Writer Improved four-year graduation rates and a movement toward a more common university-wide experience are among the goals expressed by UF administrators at Wednesday's Board of Trustees meeting at Lake Wauburg. Members heard presentations on the state of the university and the vision for the future at the retreat. UF Provost Joe Glover said the university wants to have freshman-level common courses, meant to be taken by most or all new first-year students. He also spoke of the university's desire to boost the fouryear graduation rate, currently at 58 percent, and the six-year rate, currently at 82 percent. "We are, I would say, in the middle of the pack with respect to our peers," Glover said. To improve the rates, he noted an opportunity to require students to attend at least one summer term and the admission of a 2,000-student cohort to attend the university only during spring and summer semesters. Glover also touched on block tuition as an incentive to move students toward degrees faster. Under the policy, the university would charge tuition for fulltime students at a flat rate set at the cost of 15 credits. The Board of Trustees approved the measure in December. They agreed to wait a year to implement the policy, scheduled to start in fall 2012. Laptop security measure stalls By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER Alligator Staff Writer By May 1, life was supposed to get tougher for many PC users on campus. UF wireless was going to require security checks for laptops running Microsoft Windows. Computers without anti-virus protection and the latest Windows updates were supposed to experience problems accessing the system. But the system is still not in place. "[The wireless security checks] were not implemented," said Matt Grover, a senior network engineer at UF, in a voicemail. "We backed off due to implementation problems." Though Grover did not say when the system will be implemented, the May 1 edition of the system would have only been a trial period. Computers that failed the checks would still be allowed onto the network, according to a UF press release. "We backed off due to implementation problems." Matt Grover UF senior network engineer The changes were scheduled in order to reduce identity theft and are not unlike the security checks required to access the Department of Housing and Residence Education network and the Health Science Center network.

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 12, 2011 #whatajoke With Gingrich bid, bar for GOP nomination lowered Standing on top of his soapbox in cyberspace, former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich officially announced on Facebook and Twitter Wednesday his intention to seek the Republican nomination for President in 2012. To this we simply say, "LOL." It's not that we find his method of announcing his political intentions jocular. In fact, we see the former Georgia congressman's use of social networking sites to launch his presidential campaign as an ingenious strategy. It's the character behind the text characters that we have trouble taking seriously. In a field that is likely include two reality TV stars and a woman who was told by God she needed to run for Congress, Gingrich looks like Lincoln. Yet regardless of how languid the crop of GOP presidential candidates has become, it is insulting to the American voter that he could be considered a legitimate candidate from a mainline party given his unflattering past. There's no question about his ability to wage a formidable challenge to a Democratic president in a general election, especially given the resurgence of right-wing fervor seen within this country in the last few years. His political moxie and swordsmanship make him an attractive candidate for many conservatives, Republicans and those who have felt scorned by the Obama administration's inability to deliver its banner message of "Hope and Change." As a House Speaker, he was able to lead a Republican charge on Capitol Hill that saw his party take control of both legislative houses in 1994, a feat that hadn't been seen since the 1950s. With the right amount of momentum and financial cannon fire, he could get the keys to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. For the United States, such a development would be a scary thing. While on Capitol Hill, Gingrich went out of his way to thumb his nose at Democrats. At times, he did it in the pursuit of Republican policy. Most times, however, he did so for no other reason than to politically grandstand, to show the White House who exactly controlled the lower house. His unwillingness to work with the Clinton White House during the federal government shutdown crisis of 1995 shifted the tides of public opinion against his party as Americans saw the Speaker as nothing more than a glorified politibrat throwing a toy store temper tantrum. Given the country's current political climate, a Gingrich presidency would act as nothing more than a blustery tornado of hot air descending upon a burning trash heap. If there is one thing that can out-slug his political vanity in a street fight of sleaze, it's his ethical flexibility. History will remember Gingrich as the first Speaker to be formally reprimanded by the House by a vote of 395-28 for his complete disregard for legislative procedure. As one Republican congressman put it, "Newt has done some things that have embarrassed House Republicans and have embarrassed the House. If [the voters] see more of that, they will question our judgment." Ya think? We now call upon the Party of Lincoln to do the right thing and not give this charlatan of a candidate any more ammunition. You have a qualified candidate who has a sound fiscal mind and does not try to cater to extremism. Please do not let him fall into the jaws of party cannibals who look to feast on him because of where he worships on Sunday.

Wearing an outfit that screamed "Attention everyone, I'm doing something very, very important today; that's why I stole this outfit from my father's closet," I walked down to 1105 W.

The sports guys didn't know it at the time, but the second coming of Al Michaels, the illegitimate love child of Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser, was about to walk through the door and lay a smackdown of awesome on them. I had the metaphor magic of Rick Reilly, the drunkuncle-at-Thanksgiving dinner brashness of Woody Paige and the ocular capabilities of Stuart Scott. I had the total package plus the "fuzzy" channels grandpa watches at 2 a.m. I stuck to the playbook during my interview, an epic man-flirt session with three guys in a back room office.

THURSDAY, MAY 12, 2011E ALLIGATOR, 7 local resident celebrates death of bin Laden, calls it historic moment We got him: a man whose evil changed the world and defined a young generation. He was a figurehead of evil, and he was the serpent in the garden. On that day in September, our vision of evil was changed from the likes of Captain Hook to the realities of true unforgiving atrocities. Our young generation experienced more real death and more real fear than any young person should ever have to endure. Almost ten years after his most infamous attack on innocent lives, the people who he affected most, the generation of children who lost their loved ones and lost their innocence, can celebrate for the first time in their lives. It not the end of the war, but it is a momentous step. It's the death of Darth Vader. It's the surrender at Appomattox. It's the end of the movie. It's the accomplished goal. There is still work to do. There will still be scraps to clean up. But when your grandchildren read the history books, this will be the day they remember. This is the day you'll remember. This is the last chapter of the story, and now we are just writing epilogue. Thank you to the men and women serving this country, many of whom are our friends and our peers, who dedicated and gave their lives for this day. Peter Moschouris Gainesville resident In wake of tornadoes, Tuscaloosa woman asks Gator Nation for help As most of you know, a devastating storm system swept across the South on April 27, 2011, bringing with it some of the most destructive tornadoes in our nation's history. Tuscaloosa, Ala., home to the University of Alabama, was one of the most severely impacted areas. As of May 1, 2011, 40 Tuscaloosa residents had been found dead, with over 350 still missing. As we move forward from the initial aftermath, Tuscaloosa needs your help. We all feel the rivalry between the University of Alabama and the University of Florida. And come football season, we will yell and jeer at each other just as loudly as ever But right now, Alabama is struggling. Without support, our town will not be able to recover. We need our fellow SEC supporters to come to our aid. If you can give nothing, please pray. Pray for those who have lost loved ones, pray for those who are still missing and pray for those of us who have lost our belongings. My apartment is gone, but I am still alive. I pray daily for tose still in need. If you are able to give financially, please consider giving to the West Alabama chapter of the Red Cross. Their main office is located in Tuscaloosa, and they have been on the streets daily since the tornado. You can donate directly to the West Alabama chapter through http: / / aprilsfuryrelieffund.com/ Thank you for your continued thoughts and support. Let's prove to the nation what the SEC can do.

Summer music festivals offer something for everyone By KELLY RICHARD avenue writer Although some music festivals like Coachella and SunFest have already come and gone, there are still plenty of opportunities duringthe nextfew months to hear tunes like "Howlin' For You" by The Black Keys and catch up-and-coming acts like Grouplove and Dom. While the festival circuit in the U.S. isn't as highly regarded as the festivals in Europe, there are still quite a few that are worthy of note. Here's our guide to the summer festival scene.

Krazy Fest + May 20-22 in Louisville, Ky. + Headliners include: Against Me!, 7 Seconds, Lucero and Cave In Krazy Fest offers a large number of punk bands.

DirecTV Premiers new home service By NICOLE LA HOZ avenue writer With DVD and movie theater revenues down, DirecTV is tryingto alleviate tight sales by going up. The largest provider of digital TV entertainment services launched Home Premiere, a new video-on-demand service, in late April. Home Premiere offers movies for $29.99 on DirecTV Cinema at least 60 days after playing in theaters. Home Premiere marks the first time major studio movies are available at that moment and price, according to the Los Angeles Times. "Just Go With It," the first Home Premiere movie released, was available 69 days after showing in theaters. DirecTV's website said Home Premiere movies give people convenience; they can enjoy releases months before they're available on Netflix or DVD. Once purchased, Home Premiere movies have unlimited plays for 48 hours. While it might please families, Home Premiere has filmmakers and theater owners rethinking business strategies. Twenty-three directors, includingJames Cameron and Peter Jackson, issued an open letter against the video-on-demand service in April. It asked studios how Home Premiere would affectthe movie industry. "We ask that our studio partners do not rashly undermine the current -and successful -system of releasingfilms in a sequential distribution window that encourages movie lovers to see films in the optimum, and most profitable, exhibition arena: the movie theaters of America," the letter said. Derek Chang who oversees Home Premiere, said in a KANAPAHA BOTANICAL GARDENS 99 Enjoy a moonlight walk through the meadows, gardens and lakeside forests of Kanapaha on a path lighted by fireflies, 1500 luminaries, floating candles, paper lanternsand the spring moon.

Bloomberg article Home Premiere would help theaters because they make little revenue two months after a release. However, Chief Executive Officer of Cinemark Holding Alan Stock told Bloomberg theaters' revenues are threatened by shortening cinema time. On-demand movies premiere 90 to 120 days after a movie opens. Cinemark, as a result, isn't screening trailers of movies shown on TV sooner than 90 days. It might also follow Regency Theaters, which doesn't show films breaking the 90-day window; it pulled "Just Go With It" from theaters. Paramount Pictures is not participating, and Walt Disney Studios is weighing its options. Warner Brothers, Universal Pictures, Fox Searchlight and Sony Pictures have alOn ready partnered with Home Premiere. Jossie Barroso, a fourth-year telecommunications student at UF, said mere patience would defeat Home Premiere's premise. "It seems too expensive when you can just wait a little longer to rent it for a cheaper price," she said. If the $30 price isn't embraced, Chang said rental fees might go down. "We're testing a price point and testing a window in the early days of this product, and we'll see how it takes," Chang told Bloomberg. However, second-year UF biology student Nick Harris said it will always come down to price. Home Premiere may never pay off for college students. "Thirty dollars to rent a movie when I can watch it in theaters two months before, or buy it a month later for $10?" he said. "It doesn't make sense." I & I Short of Cash?

10, ALLIGATOR thursday, may 12, 2011 "Hesher" brings creativity to Hollywood By ANDY MAROON avenue columnist Hollywood needs some new ideas. The summer of 2011 is upon us, and itseems moviegoers will be subject to a good helping of continuations, adaptations and remakes. Between mid-April and August, there are foursuperhero movies, two prequels, 10 sequels and even more movies based off of books or TV shows. Hollywood needs "Hesher." "Hesher" is the directorial debut of Spencer Susser, an up-and-coming Australian filmmaker whose resume consists of mostly commercials and music videos. Written by Susser and David Mich6d, "Hesher" boasts an exceptionally strong cast for a director's debut. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Natalie Portman and Rainn Wilson take on starring roles while audiences are introduced to teenage sensation Devin Brochu. The story of Hesher (Gordon-Levitt) follows that of the standard "traveling angel" tale, but instead of a halo and white robes, he dons horns, crappy tattoos and a dirty Metallica T-shirt. The film is seen through the eyes of 13-yearold T.J. (Brochu) as he struggles with bullies, his crush and the death of his mother. When T.J. accidentally ruins Hesher's hideout, the drifter decides to take up residence in T.J.'s garage. T.J.'s father, Paul (Wilson), apathetic with grief after losing his wife, does nothing to get rid of Hesher. Restricting himself to the couch, Paul does nothingto help T.J. with his problems, so Hesher takes it upon himself to do so. Using a combination of fire, harsh language and metal music, Hesher helps T.J. overcome his heartache and grow into a man -or at least attempts to. What originally interested me most about "Hesher" was its director, Spencer Susser. Hollywood is in need of fresh ideas, and Susser seems to be full of them. My curiosity in the film only heightened once casting choices were announced. Gordon-Levitt has been an all-star the past year, starring in Christopher Nolan's "Inception" and recently landing a role in the upcoming "The Dark Knight Rises." Wilson, mostwidely known as DwightSchrute of "The Office," makes no attempt at humor as he portrays a heavily medicated, depressed father. There's always something interesting about watching comedy actors try their hand at drama. Natalie Portman also continues her dominance of the big screen with yet another versatile role. The chance to see Portman revertto her frumpy hipster ways should be enough to get any "Garden State" fan into a theater. With an all-star cast and an enthusiastic, young director, "Hesher" has the potential to be a breakthrough indie-hit, snaking its way through the nation's theaters like "Napoleon Dynamite" and "Juno" once did. "Hesher" sees a limited release on May 13. Theaters showing the film can be found on hesherthemovie.com. WHAT TO WATCH May 6 -Thor Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins May 13 -Priest Paul Bettany, Karl Urban, Maggie Q May 20 -Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Pen6lope Cruz. end, it's back to basics t's a good time to be a gamer. Portal 2 has finally been released to fanfare rivaling the second coming of the Messiah, of which I am woefully missing out on due to my accursed lack of funds. E3 is on the horizon, with Nintendo expected to kick-start the next console generation. The National Endowment for the Arts now legally considers video games an art form. Aside from a few buzzkills -I'm looking at you, Sony -the future of video games has never seemed brighter. Sadly, it's in this time of great rapture that my tenure with Gamer Bait is coming to an end. For my last edition of Gamer Bait I wanted to talk about some of the games that I cherish and turned me into the gamer I am today. + Final Fantasy IX Released: Nov. 14, 2000 for Playstation One of the few regrets I have concerning Gamer Bait is that I never had the chance to talk indepth about RPGs, a genre that has influenced me immeasurably as a gamer and nerd. This underrated gem from the Golden Age of RPGs showed me how video games could be used to tell an epic story with larger-than-life characters. What other artistic medium can combine a lecherous thief with a monkey tail, a gluttonous frog creature of ambiguous gender and a Andrew Wyzan Columnist rat-knight and portray them as fully dynamic and real characters? This game blew my mind when I was 10, and it still blows me away today. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Released: Nov. 23, 1998 for Nintendo 64 Every boy dreams of saving the world and being granted a sword, a shield, a princess to save and evil to conquer. As the morning sun rose over Hyrule Field and I set out from my childhood home, having already slayed the first of many foul bosses, I knew that my dream had been fulfilled. Up until this point gamers never had such a huge three-dimensional world to explore with untold wonders waitingto be found. I explored every inch of this world on the back of my noble steed Epona, finding every Heart Piece, ammo upgrade and Golden Skulltula simply because they were waiting to be found. From the day this game was released, it became a legend unto itself, and legends never die. New UF amnesty policy met By SHELBY WEBB avenue writer As I sat in the University Police Department's "classroom," watching a slide show jam-packed with gory images of drunk driving accidents and roads littered with mangled bodies, I felt like something wasn't right. Sure, I can understand why people who were arrested or cited for serious alcohol-related infractions might have to suffer through this PowerPoint from hell, but I had violated the alcohol section of the University Student Code of Conduct-and I wasn't even drunk. But my friend was, and I took her back to her dorm where I thought she could get some assistance. Instead of help, we both got slapped with a hold on our records, a mandatory alcohol seminar and a meetingwith UF's judicial board. Luckily for all of you, UF has adopted a new policy waiving student disciplinary action under certain conditions. This was done in the hopes that all students will call for medical help for themselves or their friends during alcohol, drug or other health emergencies. UF's new Medical Amnesty Policy, known as MAP, aims to remove unnecessary concerns about disciplinary action for students seeking assistance in response to serious or life-threatening incidents related to alcohol or drugs. "We hope students will think about safety first, so they can get medical attention first and not worry about the consequences until later," said Jeanna Mastrodicasa, a member of the Campus Alcohol and Drug Education Policy Committee that put forward the proposal. Safety is something to worry about when drinking. Even though the policy is only a few weeks old, students have already been buzzing about it. "I think students won't be afraid to get the help they need with this new policy. It makes student safety a priority, which is how it always with approval should be," sophomore political science and music major Collin Thompson said. So who qualifies for amnesty? "It's a case-by-case basis; we try to use common sense," said Mastrodicasa. "If a student needed legitimate medical attention for a drug or alcohol emergency, they would probably get amnesty. But if there's someone who might be doingthings like this five times in a row, we might consider taking some action." The policy does not extend to the dorms or student housing, which have their own rules accordingto Mastrodicasa. So even if the university grants you amnesty, you might still suffer some consequences from student housing. "Yes, you'll still have to meet with someone, but in reality, what's important there is that they get the help they need," she said. And I agree. That night I took my drunk friend to her dorm, she did receive medical attention. And I would have sat through 500 more gruesome slide shows to get her the help she needed. In the

thursday, may 12, 2011 *ALLIGATOR, 11 roughout my time as a "music critic," I've had my fair share of incredible moments -the sort of experiences I used to T dream about as a music fan. In a little more than a year, the time I've spent as an amateur music journalist, I've gotten to meet bands I idolized when I was in middle school. I've played sports with musicians whose records I spun endlessly on myfirst iPod in high school. I've become friends with up-and-coming artists who will eat a burrito with me now, but forget me when they become much more well-known one day. Aside from all that, the most enjoyable part of doing my job is still bringing new content to readers and introducing people to new music. But all of that behind-the-scenes action has made me feel as though I'm a part of something notable here in 2011. Every summer, as the air gets hotter and the weather more humid, music fans everywhere turn to that summertime music the soaring vocals and huge hooks found in songs like New Found Thomas Nassiff Avenue Editor Twitter @ThornasNassiff Glory's "My Friend's Over You" and Yellowcard's "Ocean Avenue." You know those songs from way back when you were in middle or maybe even elementary school. Those songs were popular on MTV (when MTV played music videos) back in 2003. Unfortunately, the pop-punk scene took a turn for the worse in the eyes of many in the middle to late part of the decade. A sea of awful bands donning neon-colored clothes threatened to drown a genre that was once filled with buddingyoung men writing angsty songs about girls, their best friends and everything else life had to offer. Well, at the turn of the decade, a noteworthy tide began to turn as certain bands rose up as the cream of the crop in a new golden age of pop-punk. In 2009-10, we saw for the first time in quite a few years a group of bands that toured together, released music together and cemented each other as one solid contingency of a scene. Last week, I had the privilege of spending a couple of days with my good friends in The Wonder Years, Fireworks, Make Do And Mend and Living With Lions duringtwo of the Florida dates on their Manscout Jamboree tour. What I saw was not just two days of honest, do-it-yourself touring and amazing live sets, but a group of about 30 people who treated each other like brothers. During those two days, I realized again what I've already come to know as fact: that we really are witnessing a high point in this genre. While mainstream music continues to churn out predictable catchy singles and manufactured "musicians," the pop-punk underground scene is thriving on its own. So as summer grinds along, try out some of the new wave of pop-punk instead of the new Lady Gaga single. Whether you decide to be a part of it or not, pop-punk is rising again. The Whigs set to rock Common Grounds with DIY ethos By KATHLEEN BOYLE avenue writer What do you get when you cross fuzzy southern rock, rhythmic hooks and brash garage grit? Answer: The Whigs. Vocalist and guitarist Parker Gispert, drummer Julian Dorio and bassist Timothy Deaux have been stirringthe rock pot since 2002 and are currently touring the southern states in support of their latest record "In the Dark." Delivering a cohesion of infectious sounds, The Whigs are a gnarly three-piece outfit from Athens, Ga., who have released three albums, toured the world with bands such as The Black Keys and Kings of Leon and been described by RollingStone magazine in 2006 as "perhaps the best unsigned band in America." On Friday the 13th, The Whigs will make their mark at Common Grounds at 9 p.m. After spending a good portion of 2010 and early 2011 touring Europe, The Whigs are looking forward to spending the next week in more familiar territory in the U.S. The band will be headlining dates throughout Florida before heading back over to the U.K. as the supporting actfor Kings of Leon. Deaux mused over the benefits of traveling the States, taking on a tone of patriotic nostalgia as he reflected upon the pros of returning to America. "It's been great to be back home and touring the states again. You know, the good ole' U.S. interstate system with truck stops and Waffle Houses at every exit," he said. Beginning in 2002, The Whigs understood the necessityfor a young band to tour, so they began playing weekend shows in New York City to gain exposure. "It is very important for a young band to break out of their hometown and find exposure outside of their regional market," Deaux said. "Los Angeles and New York are the two largest markets in the country, and New York just happens to be a lot closer to Athens." While The Whigs have come a long way on their DIY ethos, Deaux explained the band is still hungry. "You have to maintain that desire and intensity to carry through to the next stage. You have to stay hungry." L L La kLuL c L iC L Gator Dawgs We have 26 styles of hot dogs to choose from. Chicago, Heart attack, Frito, Colombia, etc. Even create your own.

Sports THURSDAY, MAY 12, 2011 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF BASEBALL Maddox's sixth-inning blast powers Florida over UNF By MATT WATTS Alligator Staff Writer mwatts@aigator org Jacksonville native Austin Maddox likes playing against his hometown rival North Florida. The Gators first baseman went 4 for 4 and drove in five runs in UF's 9-3 win over UNF last season, and on Wednesday, the sophomore hit a two-run home run to lift No. 8 Florida (37-12) over the Ospreys (25-22) 4-1 at McKethan Stadium. "He's one of those guys that when he comes to the plate that there's always a threat that he's going to do what he did tonight," UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan said. Maddox crushed a blast to left in the sixth, but the homer was just his third of the season and first since April 1 against Tennessee. "Every day is a new day and you can't really look at last year and think you're going to do the same thing this year," Maddox said. "You just have to kind of take every game one game at a time." Maddox went 2 for 4 with one run and two RBIs and said Ospreys pitcher Joe Iorio hung a curveball for his left field blast. Maddox turned on the pitch and sent it over the bleachers and into the parking lot, just creeping around the foul pole. "It's pretty rare (that I see pitches over the plate)," he said. "But I'm not going to make excuses for myself." After hitting 17 home runs as a freshman, UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan said Maddox has gotten a bad rap this season for his shrinking power numbers "A lot of times he's stung the ball, or hit it on the nose, or right at people," O'Sullivan said. "It was good to see him hit a home run there and separate us a little bit." Junior Alex Panteliodis got the midweek start for the Gators, tossing three innings and allowing just one hit and no walks on SEE BASEBALL, PAGE 20 Max Reed/ Alligator Staff Sophomore Austin Maddox knocked his first homer since April 1 against Tennessee. The first baseman hit just his third long ball of the season in the sixth-inning of UF's 4-1 win over North Florida. Postin looks to start fast at SEC Outdoors By JOHN BOOTHE Alligator Writer Jeremy Postin's opening hammer throw today at the Southeastern Conference Outdoor Championships could be the start of something special. After winning the 2011 SEC Indoor Championships in late February, the No. 2 Gators men's track and field team has a chance to sweep both conference meets, something it hasn't done since 1987. With one toss in Athens, Ga., Postin hopes to set the tone for the Gators, grabbing an early lead in his lone event over the next four days of competition. "It's really important, because we're going to lead off the meet against three other good hammer throwers with [No. 3] LSU and [No. 14] Georgia teams, who we're going to be competing with the entire time," Postin said. The sophomore currently holds the Postin third-longest throw in the SEC this season, just behind the Tigers' Michael Lauro and the Bulldogs' Justin Welch. At the indoor meet earlier this year, Postin said he was disappointed with how Florida's poor throws put the team in an early hole, forcing the runners to make up the difference later on. SEE TRACK, PAGE 20 Bush works to end slump, break home run drought THE SENIOR HASN'T HIT A LONG BALL SINCE APRIL 23 AGAINST ALABAMA. By BRYAN HOLT Alligator Writer Tim Walton is always the first person at Pressly Stadium. But when Florida's coach showed up at a time he could only describe as "early, early" before Saturday's noon contest against Tennessee, he was not alone. In the batting cage was Megan Bush -Southeastern Conference career home run queen and current owner of a five-game hitless slide. "The only way I know how to get out of a slump is to keep hitting and keep working and seeing more pitches," the senior first baseman said. "I think that's what it's all about." Since knocking her 20th homer of the season against Alabama on April 23, Bush is 2 for 25. After equaling the UF single-season home run record, the senior has gone eight games without a long ball, her longest drought of the year. During the eight-game skid, Bush has been pull-heavy, rolling over a number of pitches to the left side and striking out eight times. Her batting average has dropped from .406 to .354. With the first baseman's college career comSoftball ing to a close, Walton admits Bush is trying too hard. With three College World Series appearances without a national title, Walton said the pressure is weighing on Bush as her final postseason begins. "It's coming down to the end, and it's the last season," Bush said.

THURSDAY, MAY 12, 2011 0 ALLIGATOR, 19 Florida seeks to maintain momentum as NCAAs begin I IF nI/nwz Fric At 1 n mn four years for. He's aware of the regional." To keep their focus in the first round against South Carolina State (13-4) on Friday at 1 p.m., Florida will turn to senior Alexandre Lacroix for guidance. Lacroix has led the team all year, and his experience in the postseason is something Jackson said is a huge boost for the Gators. "I think you want an awareness [among the players] that this is what you've practiced for. This is what Alex has worked it more than the other guys and he's teaching those guys that this is the time to be present." According to Jackson, UF is good enough to make a deep run into the NCAAs, but the first step is beating South Carolina State on Friday. "We've got a better team, but the better team doesn't always win," Jackson said. "They're going to play loose and they've got some confidence from the regular season, so we're going to have to be prepared and show that we can handle some success. By THOMAS NASSIFF Alligator Writer When the UF men's tennis team hosts an NCAA Regional this weekend, it hopes to find its early postseason momentum. While Florida struggled during the regular season, especially in close matches, the No. 8 Gators (18-8) are now tasked with the difficulty of backing up their success after winning a conference title. After a magical run to capture the Southeastern Conference Tournament Championship, UF has lodged itself back into the ranks of national powerhouses looking to make a deep run in the NCAA Tournament. "We definitely felt momentum during the SEC Tournament," coach Andy Jackson said. "We were scared of Arkansas, gained a little momentum after that win. There were more people against Mississippi State, a top-20 team, and even more people against Tennessee, a national championship contender. And even on Easter Sunday, we had probably our biggest crowd of the year against Kentucky." Jackson said his team thrives while playing at home, and the Gators always have the goal of hosting an NCAA Regional. But maintaining momentum from a tournament that concluded on April 24 won't be easy. "The guys played well but a lot of it was feeding off the people in the stands, something that we're grateful for," Jackson said. "The thing with the momentum is that now we've had three weeks off. We've got more confidence, but we're like all the other teams in the round of 64 when everybody's had three weeks off. We have to Senior Alexandre Lacroix is the Gators' vocal leader, and coach earn our momentum again in Andy Jackson said his postseason experience is invaluable. Pelphrey reunites with Donovan, UF E THE FORMER ARKANSAS COACH SAID FLORIDA WAS THE ONLY PLACE HE WOULD TAKE A JOB AS AN ASSISTANT. By MATT WATTS Alligator Staff Writer mwatts@alligator org John Pelphrey knows Florida. One of three new Gators basketball assistant coaches, Pelphrey is actually a former UF assistant making a return to Gainesville after a nine-year absence. A heralded recruiter, Pelphrey brought Mike Miller to UF and was an assistant during the Gators' Final Four run of 2000 -a time he called "magical." Pelphrey's two children were born in Gainesville, and he helped coach Billy Donovan lay the foundation for the program's current run of success. During his introductory press conference Tuesday, Pelphrey repeatedly emphasized that Gainesville is a special place and returning to Florida was a unique situation. "(UF) is the only place I'd be doing this," Pelphrey said, specifically referencing coaching as an assistant. "I think because it's (Donovan), because all my kids were born here, this is a safe place. I don't see myself having taken this opportunity anywhere else." Pelphrey was a head coach at South Alabama and Arkansas after leaving Florida in 2002. But Pelphrey was fired as coach of the Razorbacks in March. And shortly after, Larry Shyatt left Florida for Wyoming, Richard Pitino bolted to Louisville and Rob Lanier returned to Texas, opening the door for Pelphrey and Donovan to reunite. "Everything changed and really the first person I hired was John," Donovan said. "I felt like I really needed somebody that knew me, that knew Florida, that knew the way to do things." The 42-year-old is one of three new coaches on UF's staff, joining Norm Roberts, former St. John's head coach, and Matt McCall, former FAU assistant coach. Familiarity is one of the big reasons Pelphrey is back on UF's staff. He played at Kentucky from 198992 when Donovan was an assistant and was a part of Donovan's staff at Marshall from 1994-96 before following him to Florida. Pelphrey said he didn't pursue head-coaching jobs after being let go because the time between his firing and Donovan's offer was so soon. Returning to an assistant's role can be a challenge, but Pelphrey said he's focused solely on playing his role on the staff and being the best he can be for Donovan and the players. "Some of that other stuff, I'm not going to look at that or focus on those things because that's going to take me away from doing what I need to do," Pelphrey said. "This opportunity is certainly a wonderful opportunity. It's a blessing and it needs to be treated that way." While neither Donovan nor Pelphrey envisioned a future reunion, Pelphrey said he knows it's the right decision. And seeing all the familiar faces in his return to Gainesville has made the transiton easier, Pelphrey said. "If you know more than five people in a place, you probably have a pretty good feel for it," he said. "I can name off a lot more than five. Nobody seems to leave Florida, that's how special it is." ETC: According to Donovan, forwards Erik Murphy and Cody Larson remain suspended indefinitely despite a report that charges against them have been reduced. Donovan said he would continue to allow the legal process to play itself out before making any decisions about their future. "Once it gets resolved and once I found out what the resolution is, then I think I can react," Donovan said. "Until that happens, right now those guys are going to be suspended, but it's not like there's a whole lot going on right now to suspend them from." Blakely to transfer, cites displeasure with offense BRYAN HOLT Alligator Writer Mike Blakely will not play a down of football for the Florida Gators. The early enrollee freshman running back announced Tuesday he will transfer from UF after sitting out all of spring practice recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder. Blakely committed under Urban Meyer but remained loyal to UF when Will Muschamp took over until he saw the new regime's onfield product. "I just didn't like the pro-style offense once I saw what it was all about," Blakely said. The former Manatee High standout said he is used to being "the back" on the field, and said he feels he can start immediately somewhere else instead of waiting in line at Florida. Had he stayed, Blakely would've been competing for playing time in a crowded backfield featuring Chris Rainey, Jeff Demps, Mike Gillislee and Mack Brown. Blakely said it's clear that Charlie Weis' pro-style attack is only going to utilize one or two backs, and he would prefer to play for a spread offense. "Mike has come to the conclusion that the University of Blakely Florida is not where he wants to play football," Muschamp said in an official statement. "We wish him the best of luck." Blakely informed the Gators head coach of his decision in a very short phone conversation. "(Muschamp) asked, 'You're going to transfer?"' Blakely said. "I said 'Yeah,' and that was it." Blakely said transferring is something he thought about for a long time. It was clear to him for most of the spring that UF wasn't where he wanted to be. During his high school career, the 5-foot-9, 198-pound Blakely was an Army All-American and was rated the No. 6 running back in the nation by Rivals.com. He is not yet sure where he will transfer, but it won't be the Southeastern Conference -at least not immediately. "[UF] told me I can't transfer anywhere in the SEC, so I'm leaning toward going [to junior college] and then coming back to the SEC," Blakely said. The freshman is the third player to transfer from Florida in less than a month, joining wide receivers Javares McRoy and Chris Dunkley. ..

20, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 12, 2011 Holloway said throwers are primed for hot start TRACK, from page 18 "I think all of our runners are going to do the best they can, but if we start them off with a deficit they're going to be thinking a little differently," he said. "So if we can help them out and win throws, they're going to go out there with a lot more confidence and perform better." Unlike Postin, sprinter Terrell Wilks is slated for a workmanlike load over the last three days with six sprints and relays to run. If he falters in an early event, the one-time SEC Champion will likely get a chance to redeem himself later in the meet, but Wilks is still hoping the throwers can grab the early momentum. "One person can spark another, and then that sparks the whole team," Wilks said. "A quick start on Friday is very, very important. [the throwers] are going to set the tone for the weekend. If we have a negative tone, we have to work around it, but with a positive tone, it makes it a lot easier to finish the weekend." UF coach Mike Holloway thinks his throwers are primed for a big weekend as Postin (hammer throw), freshman David Triassi (hammer) and sophomore Stipe Zunic (javelin) have all won in the last three weeks. "That's always in our plans to be at our best at this time of the year," Holloway said. "Coach [Steve] Lemke and the rest of my Track staff, we're all on the same page as far as that's concerned. Steve does a wonderful job of getting them ready when it counts." UF's unranked women's team will also be in Athens going for its third title in three years after winning the 2010 SEC Indoor Championships and 2009 SEC Outdoor Championships. Bruder named SEC Player of the Year on Wednesday SOFTBALL, from page 18_ -all of my time into it -then I'd be really disappointed when I left here." She has also been affected by an NCAA decision that initially hurt nearly half of the Gators lineup. On April 29, the NCAA banned the Easton Synergy Speed that Florida, Georgia and others used, resulting in players frantically searching for a new bat that fits their swings. Bush has accounted for 20 outs since the ban. Of those outs, 10 have come to the left side of the field and four others are strikeouts. The righty Max Reed/ Alligator Staff Florida's senior first baseman said she has experimented with "close to 30 bats" since the NCAA banned the Easton Synergy Speed on April 29. has only hit the ball to the right side of the field twice in seven games.
