KELLY PRICEAlligator Contributing WriterDanielle Duncan has never been to a gameday inside The Swamp, and she doesnt really care to ever experience it. The 18-year-old software engineering freshman didnt sign up for the student ticket lottery and isnt planning on getting any tickets to spend her Saturdays in the student section of She said she doesnt like football and normally just claps when other people clap at a game. She doesnt like the cramped environment, either. And Duncan isnt alone. For tickets are not sold out yet, according to Mark Gajda, assistant athletics director with the University Athletic Association. Gajda said this year, the department is 1,000 tickets below its average 21,500 UF band and student tickets about a 5 percent decrease. In the seven or eight years the lottery has been around, he said, this has never happened. Gajda said students may not know to register for the season ticket lottery over the summer because they dont check their Student football season tickets still not sold out HEAT WAVE MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator Contributing WriterStudents who walked through the sweltering heat on their way to class this semester can expect temperatures to dip back below normal by the end of the week. The decrease in temperatures should mark the end of a heat wave that has affected much of the U.S. since late June, experts say. Zaaron Allen, a lead forecaster with the National Weather Service in Jacksonville, said a slow-moving, strong ridge of high atmospheric pressure caused the heat wave. The ridges lack of movement caused heat to build from sinking air. Even though temperatures in Gainesville did rise during the heat wave, Allen said, the city didnt see a dramatic spike in temperatures. Gainesville is at the very periphery of the conditions, Allen said. The humidity hasnt been as bad as further north. In Gainesville, the average high this month is currently 94 degrees, about two degrees above normal, Allen said. The heat index for Gainesville peaked at 105 degrees, three degrees shy of issuing a heat warning. Allen said that temperatures and weather are forecasted to return to a normal summer pattern by next week. The ridge of high pressure is weakening, so the heat is decreasing, he said.Rising temperatures to return to normal this weekSEE TICKETS, PAGE 4 Gainesville is at the very periphery of the conditions.

KRQE-TV reports that police found Thomas Molina on Sunday tangled in some window blinds at Central New Mexico Community Center spokesman Chad Campbell told the Winston-Salem Jour nal that someone reported seeing the monkey in southwestern Forsyth County on Friday. But crews didnt see the animal when they arrived. This particular type of monkey, called a macaque, escaped from the Wake Forest University Primate Center. Campbell says searchers have set up humane traps and are playing baby monkey calls to lure the will respond to the calls because she is a breeding animal used in research. The 16-year-old macaque is originally from Indonesia and has been in captivity since 2008. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSThieves bust through wall to steal hair extensionsCHICAGO Three thieves battered through a wall, crawled detectors and stole six duffel bags from a Chicago beauty supply store. The Chicago Tribune reported Saturday that the hair extensions were worth $230,000. Store owner Don Shin says the criminals took his best merchandise. He thinks the culprits will try to sell the extensions on the street or to salons. The thieves broke through a wall from an attached empty storefront at about 2 a.m. Saturday. Extensions can be made from used in salons to add length and volume to a hairstyle. Shin says the thieves didnt take any of the cheap stuff and knew what they were doing.

TUESDAY, JULY 10, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 David Carr / Alligator StaffReka Gyulai, 25, a ballet instructor and dancer, teaches a UF leisure course Monday at Pofahl Dance Studio, 1325 NW Second St. KATHERINE HAHNAlligator Contributing WriterStudents who have had enough of biology and calculus can put away the books and take up bartending. UFs Leisure Course Program begins Monday for Summer B, offering hobby, music and sports classes to students and Gainesville residents. The classes are not graded and do not appear on transcripts, said program coordinator Dianna Lampitt. Classes offered include guitar, tennis and ballroom dancing. The classes meet at the Reitz Union or other locations around Gainesville, depending on the subject. Prices vary for each class. Bartending is the most popular said. Some classes require no previous experience, and others are designed for people who want to enhance skills they already have. About 85 percent of people who enroll in the classes are UF students, Lampitt said. Twenty-two classes are available during Summer B. Fall and spring have the highest enrollment with about 500 people per semester. We want students to learn something they wouldnt get in the classroom, Lampitt said. Registration for these classes began Monday. Registration runs until the end of next week, depending on the class. Kim Tuttle, co-owner of Pofahl Studios, said she has been teaching leisure program dance classes for about 30 years. For Summer B, she is teaching ballet and hip-hop. The classes, taught at her studio, are combined with classes Tuttle already teaches, she said. She said the classes are perfect for students who want to dance but dont have an outlet. As long as people want to learn, well teach them, she said.Students, non-students can now register for UF leisure courses Classes start Monday We want students to learn something they wouldnt get in the classroom.Dianna LampittUFs Leisure Course Program coordinator


UF email accounts and arent on campus. The student population this year just didnt come out as much as previous years, he said. I think fans are still excited. July to August are just summer doldrums. The incoming freshman class typically buys the most lottery tickets because its the largest class by numbers, Gajda said. This year, the class distribution was normal. Student season tickets cost $105 for seven home games this year. Unclaimed student tickets cost $15 per game, according to the Gator Ticket Any remaining student tickets will be sold to the general public before each game this fall. While Gajda said fans will buy admitted there is less demand than supply regarding student season tickets. Regular season tickets, though, have been up by a few hundred more tickets sold, Gajda said. Last season, three of seven home those against Furman University, University of Alabama-Birmingham and Florida Atlantic University. Gajda said the 2011 season was sales didnt sell out at the end of the season. Kimble McKay, a law student at Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville, graduated from UF in 2010. He said he was shocked that student tickets werent selling out. He still tailgates home games at Lake Alice Field, a tradition hes kept with his family since he was 10 years old. Even though we havent done as well in recent years, I still go, he said. I think new students just have expectations so high. For some students, though, dollars matter just as much as touchdowns do. Magdala Joseph, 21, said she would just rather pay her tuition bills than sign up for the student ticket lottery. Its not as fun when the Gators arent winning, the criminology and law and anthropology senior said. If it becomes a season where games are worth watching, Ill go. But Im not motivated to go get unclaimed tickets right now. Antony Rivera, a 19-year-old information systems sophomore, said he got the student ticket lottery his freshman year but only went to one game. He said his friends never went, he didnt have much time and the Gators losing streak last season was a turn-off. I personally thought it was a bad investment, he said. If youre there and your team is losing, youre just sitting there and thats never fun in any kind of event. 4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JULY 10, 2012 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffEmpty seats were the theme when UF played Furman on Nov. 19.

The Higgs boson is a subatomic particle that can explain how matter attains mass. It interacts with other subatomic particles and slows them down. The particles discovery was announced Wednesday, and it is believed to be the Higgs boson. The discovery was made at CERN, a multinational particle physics laboratory in Geneva. Andrey Korytov, a UF professor and team leader of physicists, said without this particle the Standard Model was not complete. The model, which is the best current explanation for how the universe works, is a set of elementary particles that make up the world. The new particle holds a central role in the model. A version of the Higgs particle could be a bridge to understand the 96 percent of the universe that is unknown, according to a CERN press release. Paul Avery, another UF professor and researcher involved in the discovery, said the Standard Model now has its theoretical capstone. Scientists have been looking for it since the 1970s. The new particle was found by observing collisions of protons and looking at the smashed fragments, said researcher and UF professor Konstantin Matchev. Only a few thousand of the billions of collisions were the possible Higgs boson. Its like looking at a needle in a stack of hay, Matchev said. Two teams of about 3,000 physicists collected data from an underground tunnel 17 miles wide. UF belongs to the CMS team. The CMS team and the Atlas team independently found results of a new particle and believed it could be the Higgs boson. UF has been involved in the research for about 15 years. The team has collected data for two years. The team will continue to study the particles properties and see if it is still behaving like the Higgs boson, Avery said. Matchev said there was some indication last sumIts good we found it, or we would have to throw away textbooks, he said.

TUESDAY, JULY 10, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 HE HELD AND ASSAULTED HER FOR ALMOST THREE WEEKS. CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterA homeless Gainesville man was arrested Monday for kidnapping, sexually assaulting and forcing a woman into prostitution in a homeless camp. Gainesville Police arrested Alphonso Perry Hinton, 41, for sexual assault, aggravated battery, forced prostitution and false imprisonment, according to Alachua County Jail booking logs. In April, Hinton lured a 32-year-old woman, whose name wasnt released, with force and threats to Tent City, where he imprisoned and sexually assaulted her from April 24 to May 14, said Hinton beat and strangled the woman, police said. He also repeatedly raped and sodomized her. According to a GPD arrest report, Hinton also forced the woman into prosshe refused, Hinton would beat her until she complied. Tobias said the woman was too scared to try to escape. On May 14, the woman was able to escape and contact authorities, Tobias said. Police did not make an arrest because Hinton was in the hospital at the time. Police arrested Hinton on Monday at the Rush Lake Motel on Southwest 16th Avenue. According to police, Hinton and the woman were in a relationship and have a child together. As of Monday night, Hinton was in set. Contact Chris Alcantara at calcantara@ alligator.org.Gainesville man arrested for kidnapping woman CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterGainesville was recently named the top city in the state for Forbes magazines 14th reers. Gainesville ranked higher than 16 other Florida cities on the list to take the top spot. Nationally, the city is ranked No. 101 out of the 200 cities listed. The magazine based the rankings on several factors, including costs of living and doing business in a city, education of the labor force and number of highly-ranked colleges in an area, according to Forbes website. Gainesvilles ranking came as no surprise to city commissioner Thomas Hawkins. Hawkins attributed the citys affordable living costs, small size and government services that helped Gainesville rise above other Florida metro areas on Forbes list. Abhi Lokesh and his partner, Alex Theodore, founded the Gainesville-based photo company Fracture in 2009. Lokesh, 24, said he chose to start the company in Gainesville because of the citys affordable cost of living and tightknit network of university professors and professionals. You mix that with a very hungry and a very talented student population, I think that is a very unique formula for success that not a lot of cities and municipalities can match, he said.

Vote for the winner online at alligatorSports.org. Joe: pastime, but it has always been mine, and Jonathon Crawford gave me one of my favorite memories with my favorite sport. I had the good fortune of covering the sophohune-Cookman in the NCAA Gainesville Regional opener on June 1. Crawfords gem and it could very well be the last. Florida had many athletes go above and beyond the call of duty this season, but Crawfords no-no stands above the rest. Not only did he domistart, but Crawford delivered for the topranked Gators on a national stage. Floridas postseason run ended with a winless College World Series showing a development made all the more shocking considering how invincible the Gators looked with Crawford on the mound in their postseason opener. Corey: All this baseball talk is making me sleepy, now back to the good part. Remember back in September when Chris Rainey single-handedly ran Floridas offense? Not only was he putting up stats to contend for the Heisman, but he even made people believe Florida had a chance against Alabama. What a joke that turned out to be, but the reason it was even considered was because of Rainey. Everybody knew the defense was solid, but after that 2010 season, the offense remained in serious doubt. That all changed in one game: a 33-23 victory against a surprisingly strong Tennessee team, headlined by a Time to Die statement from the man himself. One game later, Florida was 4-0 and heading into the meat of their schedule with the No. 12 ranking and championship dreams. Sure it turned out just like John Carter, but at least this version had a Liam Neeson cameo. Joe: Well, the Time to Diesman campaign bit the dust once Rainey ran into a real opponent in the Crimson Tide. The talking about a team Tennessee coach Derek Dooley compared to the confused German forces at Normandy during World War II. midable threat to Crawford despite its No. 4 ranking in the NCAA Gainesville Regional. The Wildcats were coming off the heels of a seventh straight Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference title, and they had played the Gators an opponent hitless regardless of stature is very impressive. Even someone as untalented as Pitbull records a hit every once in a while. Corey: I seem to have missed those hits Pitbull put out, and the ones that classify Ranking 193rd in the country last year, the Wildcats dished out a whopping .269 team batting average, with only three people hitting over .300, one of which didnt even touch Rainey led a less-than-mediocre offense to a crucial victory early in the season. Say what you will about Tennessee, but they had a solid defense, ranking in the top 30 nationally, even with injuries and depth issues plaguing them throughout the season.

14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JULY 10, 2012 FIRE JOE MORGAN I dont care about the Home Run Derby. Prince Fielder won last nights slugfest at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., with 28 long balls. I saw none of them. As much as I love baseball, the Home Run Derby batting practice made all the more annoying with Chris Berman repeatedly barking, Back, back, back, back, back! I can respect that. Some folks enjoy the sheer display of power. Others liked baseball better with rampant performance-enhancing drug use. However, if you are not in attendance, your interest fades faster than the longest home runs of the night. If I dont have the chance to catch a souvenir, watching All-Stars hit batting-practice pitches into the seats holds little appeal. Despite my issues with the Home Run Derby, I do not believe it is beyond saving. Here are a few changes I would like to see in the mid-summer smashing contest: Targets/Goals Most All-Stars can mash battingpractice lobs over the fences. At the end of the day, its just not that impressive. Lets see some precision. ly? How many times can a 35-year-old Carlos Beltran surpass 400 feet? Assuming home runs are worth one point each, hitting a target would earn batters additional points. Quality over quantity, people. Pitch limit The last thing any baseball fan wants to see is Robinson Cano take a bunch of pitches in a row. Take the bat off your shoulder! Each batter gets 10 strikes, and that is it. Use an umpire if necessary. Live pitching Ozzie Smith could look like Hank Aaron in the right ballpark if you lobbed him beach balls all day. The derby needs live pitching. Facing a mix of fastballs and breaking balls would truly determine the games best slugger. MLB can determine who pitches. Perhaps auditioning free agents could get involved. Knuckleballers would be cool. Intriguing locations I know putting on the Home Run Derby is a big deal for the All-Star Games hosting city, but fans always see home runs in stadiums. Take a page from the ClassA South Atlantic Leagues book and have the derby on carrier. Other awesome locations: the Grand Canyon, a mountain (Coors Field does not count), the Death Star. Compensation Calm down! I know the All-Stars already roll in the dough, but hear me out. These guys play a grueling, 162-game schedule and truly deserve a mid-season break. Getting baseballs best home-run hitters to compete in an ultimately meaningless Home Run Derby may take a bit of cash. Trust me, they will likely give the money to charity. If not, sports fans love villains. Boo those men! Love my suggestions or hate them, I do not care. If Derby plays out each year, then I am happy for you. You probably had a great time watching last nights broadcast. I believe the format is tired and outdated. My suggested changes may never make it off this page, but something needs to be done to shake up the Home Run Derby. Otherwise, fans will back, back, back, back, back away from their television screens. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org.

Bullard missed the late registration deadline on July 3 for admis sion for Summer B. Bullard, a Rivals.com five-star prospect, tweeted July 5: Just had a great convo with the big guy coach Muschamp SEC we com ing UF all day ! As the top-ranked defensive end in the country, Bullard gives the Gators depth on a depleted defen sive line. He is expected to enroll in the fall. Bullard will miss the first couple weeks of summer training camp. Three Gators football signees experienced trouble enrolling at UF and only two are expected to reach campus.Compiled by Adam Pincus, Alligator Writer Dante Fowler Jr. (St. Petersburg, Fla.) turned heads when he made his signing day flip from Florida State to Florida. He experienced a hiccup on his way to Florida though. The school accept ed the five-star defensive end the afternoon of July 2. Fowler is rooming with freshman running back Matt Jones. The third-ranked defensive end in the country is expected to participate in offsea son workouts. With the torn ACL to junior Ronald Powell during the spring game, Fowler will compete for playing time in the fall. While Bullard and Fowler received good news, Dante Phillips (Venice, Fla.) did not. The fourstar defensive tackle arrived in Gainesville only to learn he will not be able to attend Florida. The NCAA Clearinghouse declared him eligible, but the school denied Phillips admission. Phillips committed to the Gators back in 2010 under Ur ban Meyer. Now, Phillips is examining his options with Miami and Ole Miss rumored to be possible destinations. Unfortunately for Phillips, many schools already filled their recruiting classes.

16, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JULY 10, 2012 David Carr / Alligator StaffSophomore Jonathon Crawford reacts after teammates threw a pie in his face following his no-hitter against Bethune-Cookman in the NCAA Gainesville Regional opener June 1. Rainey put up Heisman-quality numbers. He led the team in rushing (108), receiving (104), and even added in a punt block and 21 puntreturn yards to put his total at 233 all-purpose yards. Add a touchdown and you have the best individual performance this season. Joe: I will grant you that Rainey dominated Tennessee, but he had plenty of help from a staunch run defense. The Volunteers had minus-nine yards on the day, which kept their offense from doing much of anything just one base runner, Wildcats designated hitter Jake Welch, on a third-inning walk. Gators catcher Mike Zunino gunned down Welch was sharp, and he registered at 98 mph on the great pitcher with a bright future, but his nohitter was a once-in-a-lifetime performance. The last Gator to throw a no-hitter before masterpiece is less likely than a Best Picture Oscar nomination for John Carter. Corey: Ill admit that no-hitter was impressive, but if you had waited one more day ton come just short of a perfect game against the sixth of an 8-2 win. A no-hitter may be tough to come by, but if I want to see one in my lifetime, all I need to do is wait until next ing back over, Rainey was able to account for 61 percent of the offensive production on the day. Tennessee may have had negative rushing yards, but their offense did enough to keep the time of possession virtually the had one of the nations best defenses behind him, Rainey proved he could be part of the defense by blocking a punt. Seeing a perfor mance like that again is less likely than us not making more John Carter references. Joe: Speaking of great performances, how about Taylor Kitsch in John Carter? Epic.
