By MARIA CASTILLOAlligator Contributing Writer The Stephen C. OConnell Center is getting a facelift at an estimated cost of $900,000. Lynda Reinhart, director of the center, said the recent renovation addresses bleachers and wider aisles will better accommodate the audience. To maintain the old bleachers, which were 30 years old, the university was spending a tremendous amount of money, Reinhart said. Even though it was a pretty hefty outlay of money, she said, it will save the university some money in the long run with less maintenance expense. The new bleachers have a clean look, she said, that will closely match the Gator blue color and brighten the arena. The main area previously held around 12,000 seats; with the wider aisles, about 200 seats had to be removed, she said. Fewer seats shouldnt affect ticket pricing in future events. The project was funded by the OConnell Centers reserves and started May 14. It had been discussed for about three years, said Jeremy Cynkar, director of operations. Cynkar said the bleachers will be more aesthetically pleasing. By the end of this week, the arena should be ready for fall activities. UF Football and Volleyball Fan Day, sched where people will use the bleachers, but people will get a glance at the new arena with earlier events, such as another Jehovahs Witness Conference and summer August. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 7, 2011 ON CAMPUSODome to undergo $900,000 faceliftfessor, said the case made such a media splash because it had something that many cases dont: a truly innocent victim. He said the uproar due to the verdict was remarkable, especially because he feels a guilty suspect going free is not an uncommon occurrence. The way that our criminal justice system is set up is so that if it makes a mistake, the mistake will be to turn somebody guilty loose rather than to put someone innocent away, he said. Thats what it is supposed to do. You shouldnt be shocked when it does that. Jennifer Zedalis, a trial practice professor and director of UFs trial practice program, said the states decision to seek the death penalty could have affected the jurys decision in this case. Even though the jury wouldnt be sentencing the defendant, knowing its decision could result in a death penalty puts added stress on its search for a proper verdict, she said. Zedalis compared the Casey Anthony Peterson trial of 2002. Petersons trial was another example of a case where the prosecution didnt know exactly what happened, but he was convicted and sentenced to death. People were outraged that Peterson could call his mistress at his dead wifes funeral, just as they were outraged that Anthony could be partying at a club in Orlando just days after her child went missing, she said. She also said the bizarre way the Anthony family interacts was an especially interesting aspect of this case. It stretches the bounds of human experience to see a family like this, she said. UF professor: This is different from the O.J. Simpson case TRIAL, from page 1Parents: son being wrongly portrayed in deathand genuine something so horrible could happen to him, Jones said. Jones said he and other members of the tubing group raced to meet the ambulance carrying James to Shands Hospital, but when they arrived, hospital employees said James had not been checked in. They later found out he had already been declared dead. When Taylor arrived at the scene, he spoke to two of James friends, whom he declined to name. They said James had drunk a quarter of a bottle of vodka when members of the group started ter. James family back home and some of his friends disagree. Jones said James didnt want to drink in front of his 18-yearold brother, Caleb, who was on the trip. Caleb is a sophomore at UF, and James didnt want to set a bad example for his brother. Ive never seen brothers as close as they were, said Raymond Brandte, 23, a friend of James. Jones maintains James only had a one-liter Zephyrhills water bottle with Arnold Palmer iced tea and lemonade, to which James added a little vodka. Jones said he saw James only have that one drink throughout the 45-minute trip. He said James was asleep Jones thought people assumed James was drinking out of a vodka bottle because it surfaced where he had fallen into the springs. Larry and Theresa James, however, think their son is being wrongly portrayed as responsible for his death.

They fought through a harsh winter at Valley Forge, through famine and poverty and through doubt when challenging an empire. But they fought nonetheless. Eventually, the stubborn patriots exhausted the United States of the day. Britain caved and, in 1783, recognized the colonies sovereignty. The Declaration of Independence is a document that helps capture what the idea of America is, but unfortunately, the idea of America has been hijacked by none other than the United States. The United States is a purely political entity. Its the government weve set up because, as the founders recognized, men are not angels. It is the concrete we see around us, from the classically inspired buildings of Washington to the courthouse downtown. Its also a herd of old men sitting in Congress because theyve sold their souls to the devil. To borrow a word from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the United States is the compilation of backassward policies that the world has come to disdain. Case-in-point: The United States constant military intervention into foreign affairs vexes other countries. The United States is far off from what the idea of America is. America has existed much longer. America is the belief that you can lead a better life than your parents did through hard work. America is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Its religious tolerance, egalitarianism, immigration, free speech, capitalism, meritocracy, individualism and justice for all. Most importantly, America is the belief that these ideals are not just words giving people that warm tingly feeling. fect society. Thats precisely why we say American exceptionalism. Has the idea of America been lost? Id say no. Instead, the United States has repeatedly trampled on the idea of America to the point that we often overlook it. A and we must struggle to show the world that we are different from our government. For instance, the rest of the world seems to forget that Amer icans give more to charity than any other nation by far. The next logical question then becomes how to reignite America. Unfortunately, we wont grow America back quickly. Just as our forefathers struggled initially for Amer ica, well have to work hard to do the same, perhaps a revolution of some sort. Its a little clich, but we have to clear house and throw the bums out. Politicians are a huge part of the problem. A professional politician is nothing more than a narcissistic Janus, and he doesnt care about his constituency or Amer ica; he only cares about his re-election campaign. Only after the House is clean will our ideals take center stage. We ought to elect people who actually care about America and not their own power. republic instead of an imperial empire. We have forgotten about the idea of America because we have been obsessively worrying about preserving our primacy in the world. The founders certainly didnt envision their country as an arrogant superpower. We ought to work for a smaller government that does not lead us, but instead follows us. Ultimately, people should strained. Chris Ceresa is a chemistry sophomore. His column appears on Thursdays. Chris


THURSDAY, JULY 7, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Last Thursday, my good buddy/managing editor/theman-who-has-the-sense-to-never-let-me-run-a-Muhammad-cartoon Joey Flechas and I drove down to St. Petersburg for the annual Florida Press Association convention. For the few of you who dont religiously follow the inner workings of Florida print media, the FPA convention is where a bunch of godless leftist journos/media academics/anyone with a hard-on for the written word from all across the state gather at Wonder and try to outstroke each other in rhetorical masturbation. Essentially, its like the Republican National Convention with the exception that theres a limit to how much free booze you can guzzle. Believe it or not, our paper (yes, the very same one that lets a 63-year-old Vietnam Vet talk about opium trips and throw with some grown-up journalists, pick up a few awards and eat some fancy meals. As we were heading down Interstate 75 toward Gods Waiting Room, we wondered aloud all that awaited us. Maybe wed get to talk to some writers/editors we had grammar crushes on. Perhaps I would get a chance to sit down with the guy who has interviewed me for a position with his paper three times and is harder to read than Chinese braille. Dare we say it, we may even get some business cards! Oh, the possibilities! But there was one thing on the events itinerary that really got our attention: Rick Scott. Now it doesnt take a brain trust from the University of Phoenix to realize that our governor and the media have a relationship that would make Ike and Tina Turner blush. If youre ever in need of some cheap, family-friendly entertainment, walk into any newsroom in the state and shout Rick Scott! Make sure you bring a camera; friends, extended family and the police will have a hard time believing what you see. But Dr. Flech and I, being the naive cub reporters we are, thought Rick Scott was just a discussion item, the topic of some PowerPoint before lunch. day, the governor was actually going to set foot in a room full of reporters. Heres the best way I can describe the feeling rumbling around the hotel: Imagine watching an episode of WWE Raw/Smackdown. Youve got the most annoying/boring/slightly irrelevant bad guy (editors note: see Swagger, ring, working the microphone. He says to the audience, Theres nobody in the back whos as bad as me! Ill challenge anyone, right here right now! To wrestling nerds, these are code words for Heads up fans, Im about to get my clock cleaned, which gets our blood pumping both upstairs and downstairs. Then, all of a sudden, hes interrupted by an aweto deliver said clock-cleaning. In the case of Rick Scotts appear ance, it was Mick Foley coming through the curtains as Cactus Jack, carrying a bag of thumbtacks and a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire. Everyone was giddy to ask the governor about sun rails, his refusal to hand over public records and a smor gasbord of other neat-o political stuff. As Good Ol J.R. said, Nobodys goin to kiss their sister tonight! emony, a spectacle that almost rivaled Michael Scotts Dundies in suspense and emotion, and we were making our way to the ballroom for Scotts arrival. Because I have the bladder irritability of a pregnant woman, I ducked into the mens room for a quick pregame release. As I headed for the sink, I heard the door open. I dried my hands and looked up. I almost pissed myself. Standing two feet away from me is Slick Rick. For a split second, I couldnt help but hear Mickeys voice from Rocky yelling in my head What are ya waiting fa, kid? Get aft him! Heres how I countered his dreaded Hey, how are you? In the eyes of many, I had just blown a golden opportunity in a restroom. Why, in that glimmer of time, hadnt I hammered him on Solantic or his aim to privatize everything from prisons to the pearly gates? I didnt even ask to see his veto pen! And this ones going to eat at you: About 15 minutes later, I actually shook hands with him and held a polite albeit very brief conversation with him. (Yes, I had washed my hands prior to this. No, his hand wasnt deathly cold, and no, he did ard, a Jamoke-us Russell of a human being or an unholy alliance of all three. But I had to remain cool.

You should have pulled an LBJ in the bathroom. (Ill let You should have slapped him with your dick. Why didnt you punch him in the balls? I thought we had an understanding... C.J., you have the power to change history...think about all the lives youll be saving! For many of you, these sentiments may be similar to the ones you feel about Scott. For others, they dont touch the tor tures and prison rapes you want him to endure before brunch. And that, boys and girls, is a problem. Look, many of us, for good reason, disagree with the governor on a variety of issues. Wanting him recalled or defeated in an election is one thing, but assassinations, 180th trimester and haymakers to the stimulus package? Really? How is all this talk better than the freedom-rhetoric of pasty, plump, Medicare-receiving constitutional scholars who swear that President B.

On Tuesday, the word American was American needed to be appended with adjectives to ensure our accurate judgment of each other. Of course, they must be simple terms as the world is black and white.

Yes, our political system is cor rupted with special interests and yes, Barack Obama wears tighty-whities and not boxer shorts. Despite these troubles, America is great, blah blah. We are a global leader, blah blah. Please dont misunderstand me I mean this wholeheartedly. America is an incredible, prosperous nation with the most promising citizens. We know this, but for the purpose of this column, it needs not my mindless repeating. During this Independence Day weekend, I felt deeply disturbed as I watched news stations. The bipartisanship of the political system has manifested into the sort of joke you would expect from a 1990s indie-conspiracy theory movie: Constipated old men blindly attack entire political parties in national publications; candidates pledge allegiance to narrow, contradictory positions; citizens pick news stations that will feed their hunger for validation. The divide and injustice is not just on the national level. Just this week I was reading a column on someones perceived corruption within the UF Student Government. It painted a picture of SG much like I imagined: a group of rich and working to ensure future victories. Yet somehow, they are supported and voted in by their constituency. Indeed, it doesnt sound much different from the American political system. To add a slap to the face, we are fed by a media system that manufactures a sense of divide and extremism. Were told to choose a political party like a sports team and deal with it. And so, to quote every political victory and concession speech in American history, it is time for sharing thoughts, it is time for healing and it is time for unity. We have a rough time ahead as AmeriIn our frenzy to cling to political ideologies, we forget that we all want are a better nation and better opportunities.

NEXT WEEK: Punk legends Hot Water Music announce new recordBy THOMAS NASSIFF avenue editor The local punk rock scene is a rich one that has been well documented in the past. The Gainesville area has churned out numerous notable bands, such as Less Than Jake and Against Me! bands that have transcended their success to current times even when record sales are at an all-time low. But perhaps no homegrown band is more important to Gainesvilles hallowed punk scene than Hot Water Music. The now-legendary punk rockers formed in 1993, releasing seven critically acclaimed full-length albums and several EPs before breaking up on good terms in 2005. Now, Gainesville punk fans are eagerly anticipating the return of one of the founding fathers of the local scene, as Hot Water Music recently announced plans to record a new The band, which consists of vocalist/guitarist Chuck Ragan, guitarist Chris Wollard, bassist Jason Black and drummer George Rebelo, originally came out of its hiatus in 2008. The group made a triumphant return with a secret show at Gainesvilles own Common Grounds that year, and since then the band has played scattered shows and festivals. But before releasing its new full-length record in the spring of 2012, Hot Water Music will self-release a two-song EP to support an upcoming European tour in August. Hopefully everyone likes it, Black said. Were really happy with the songs. We havent written in a long time so these Black said the songs came together so quickly because Ragan and Wollard already had ideas brewing from their career since Hot Water Music disbanded while Wollard has worked with a variety of artists. All four members of Hot Water Music have taken on other something that, Black said, made coming back for a full planned it so theres enough time to do it properly, Black said. We scheduled it to be out in the spring, so by the time it comes out, [well all be free.] We wouldnt have announced all this if we werent planning on supporting the record and giving it a big push. With Hot Water Music coming back to pull out all the stops on a new album, many wondered which record label the group would choose to release it. Having released music with Gainesville-based No Idea Records and indie giant Epitaph Records in the past, those two labels seemed to have the inside track on putting out the new album. But staying true to their form of surprising fans, the group chose Oregon-based Rise Records to release the album. The label, which has made a name for itself by putting out numer ous metalcore releases over the past few years, is seemingly in the process of changing its identity. Craig Ericson, founder and owner of Rise, said adding Hot Water Music to the labels roster is a dream come true. Hot Water Music is my favorite band, period, Ericson said in an email interview. Ive been following them since 1997. Once I knew HWM was shopping for a label, I went full-steam ahead.

As cellphones, computers and our lines of communication grow ever smaller and more consolidated, Michigans TRW Automotive is working on extending those same principles to a place you may not have considered: your car. With the rise in popularity of ultra TRW is working on revolutionizing the automotive industry by developing a steering wheel that folds up and re tracts into the dashboard when the vehicle is parked. This technology could offer tanthe styling freedom it provides, TRW development manager Manuel Poy ant said in a press release. much easier for elderly drivers or other drivers with reduced mobility to get in and out of the vehicle. Due to the this technology could open up the possibility for even smaller cabin designs. The proposed design TRW is currently working with features two bisected handles that lock into place when the vehicle is being driven, but that fold inward into the dashboard once the engine is turned off. When the driver once again starts the engine, the wheel is designed to automatically deploy into the driving position. The primary market that TRW is gearing this development toward is the over-65 population, which numbered close to 36 million in 2009 and is projected to top 72 million by the year 2030. But Poyant and the team at TRW dont want to wait that long to put it out on the market. The company believes the re tractable steering wheel could begin showing up in cars as early as 2016, and that it may even be part of an elderly focused equipment package that would make driving easier for people with limited mobility. The steering wheel provides anstyle. A potential car thief might be discouraged by the lack of a steering wheel in plain sight. And although the only images the masses have seen thus far of TRWs designs are computer renderings of the theorized prototype, automotive manufacturers have already begun showing interest in the folding steer ing wheel, giving credence to TRWs goal of putting them in vehicles with10, ALLIGATOR thursday, july 7, 2011 Lens Flair by Diana Lopez UF junior Jennifer Rodriguez goes for a cute and casual look by pairing a gray strapless shirt, tucked into high-waisted white shorts, with neutral sandals.

When we toured with Sick Of It All, people freaked out. At this point we expect that reaction from almost any decision we make. Black said the opportunity and mystery of something new also played a part in deciding what label to release a new record on. As a band, since we started this, weve always been interested in working with as many different people as possible, he said. If we release the record on Epitaph or No Idea, we pretty much have an exact idea of what would happen. We really have no idea what will happen with Rise. A host of questions still surround the situation, but one thing Ericson and the band agree on is what seems like a calmness approaching the release. When asked if he felt any additional pressure releasing a record from a band as Im sure there will be expectations, but at the end of the day, Ill be able to sleep at night knowing we worked our hardest promoting the band and the release, Ericson said. What it sells is not the most important aspect far from it, in fact. they trusted the label because [Ericson] really wanted to do the record more than anyone else. He added that by now, fans should expect the unexpected and have faith in the bands choices. As much as the release is being anticipated by die hard fans who have waited years for this announcement, a lot of time remains between now and spring of next year. In that time, Hot Water Music will tour Europe in August, headline The Fest 10 in Ocin winter. The most exciting aspect of the bands announcement to release a new record might be the excitement of the band itself. I think having so long away from writing makes it fresh and exciting for us, Black said. Its not like, the touring cycle is over, lets go write. Everyone really wants to do it.

THURSDAY, JULY 7, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 19 Rippy overcomes troubled past, ponders offers from Bama, USCHe plans to sit down with his mentor Pittsburgh Steelers employee Ty Ryan and his family before going forward. But adversity isnt new for Rippy. In middle move into a rough neighborhood. He fell into bad ways, selling drugs and stealing cars. He spent 12 days at Pittsburghs Shuman Juvenile Detention Center when he was just 13 years old. Its like youre being commanded to do whatever they tell you, Rippy said of Shuman. Every time you came back into the room you had to squat and cough to make sure you didnt have anything. After that, it was like, I could be out playing football. Football and nearly two weeks of hell at Shuman helped turn a once-troubled kid into a motivated athlete. If you were to look at me now, you wouldnt think that I was the same person I As a freshman, Rippy started at middle attention. When a visiting college coach asked about No. 11, he was informed that he was inquiring about a 14-year-old. Before he was a sophomore, Rippy had verbal offers from Maryland, Pittsburgh and Syracuse. He would also become student body vice After hearing a young local boy named Nick was a big fan of his play, Rippy surprised him by showing up at his house for family dinner. I could never really imagine that I was going to be this big-time national recruit, the 6-foot-2, 198-pounder said. Coming from how I grew up and the place that we live, I guess I look at so many football players and their history and its always the real football players who had a rough lifestyle who grow up and become big. I tell kids, no matter where youre from, you can really do anything. Im kind of big on that. RECRUIT, from page 18hope so. That would be great. How will playing with the U-23 team help her this season with UF? Any time youre playing at a high level over the summer, we love that. We encourage it tremendously. But I think just playing with different coaches and different players against different competition when you go invaluable. You played three professional teams during your spring schedule, what do you get from playing that level of competition? We like to challenge ourselves and if that means we have to take a think our team learns to play a quicker speed of play and we learn to be a little bit more relentless. Theres a lot of lessons you can take from playing teams like that. Has anyones play jumped out at you this offseason? This is the time where we spend the least amount of time with them, so until August 3, theyre kind of with Karin [Werth], our strength and conditioning coach. Were not really actively involved with coaching them, so its hard to say during this part of the offseason. Its our least favorite time as a coach, to say the least. So with just a little over a month before the season starts, are you starting to get that itch to get back out and coach? Yeah, I was probably ready about a month ago, so the quicker this goes by the better. Players return Aug. 3, open season at Miami on Aug. 19 SOCCER, from page 18 Re cruiting


20, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 7, 2011 Led by Heisman Trophy candidate quarterback Kellen Moore and often-sought after coach Chris Peterson, the Broncos will look to continue their roll as BCS busters. Although Boise State must deal with an ongoing NCAA investigation, the Broncos return a high-powered offense and unheralded defensive front seven. Although Boise State lost record-setting wide receivers Titus Young and Austin Pettis, the Broncos return senior running back Doug Martin and enter the year on a 62-game winning streak on their home blue turf. 2011 Outlook No. 7 Boise State 7 Offense 7 Defense Returning Starters QB Kellen Moore (273-383 for 3,845 yards, 71.3 comp. pct., 35 TD, 6 INT)RB Doug Martin (201 carries, 1,260 yards, 12 TD)LB J.C.

Although Muschamps hard line against these players has been popular, its tough to predict if it will translate into early wins Florida fans demand. Expectations for this season will undoubtedly be high despite last years 8-5 record, and most will look to Meyers inaugural 9-3 season as a fair starting point. But even with the aid of a coaching staff featuring six Super Bowl rings, Muschamps initial slate of Southeastern Conference games looks daunting with a brutal four-game stretch against Alabama, LSU, Auburn and Georgia. Having Jenkins, arguably college footballs top cor nerback, wouldve been invaluable against teams like Auburn, Alabama and Florida State which are unproven at quarterback after the departures of Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton, Greg McElroy and Christian Ponder. The Florida Way, however, demanded Jenkins departure after his third arrest in 23 months and deprived the Gators of a rare chance to play their strength against another teams weakness. But if anything can be learned from recent coaching transitions in the SEC, paign. In 2007, Nick Saban, Muschamps mentor at LSU and with the Miami Dolphins, endured a 6-6 regular season with the Crimson Tide. Two years later, Auburns Gene Chizik fared only slightly better at 7-5. But in their sophomore years, all three coaches turned the corner. ed and one win from an appearance in the national title game, while Chizik led the Tigers to the 2010 BCS National Championship. Even Muschamps predecessor made the jump from second-tier SEC contender in 2005, to national champion just a year later. The Swamp as head coach, the Florida Way has instituted a launching point for the future. The only thing left to do is win. FOOTBALL, from page 18Jenkins Rosa Taveras / Alligator Staff
