STATE KYLE FOLLANSBEEAlligator Staff Writerkfollansbee@alligator.orgStarting May 31, Gainesville will see nine days of no sales tax intended to help residents stock up on supplies for the hurricane season. Approved by Gov. Rick Scott on May 12, Florida House Bill 5601 was signed to start the tax holiday a day before the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season that begins on June 1 and ends on Nov. 30. By signing the packet, Scott declared that sales tax cannot be collected from May 31 to June 8 in Florida on certain items to aid in hurricane lights that sell for $20 or less, tarps or less, fuel containers for $25 or less, small household batteries for $30 or less and a portable generator for $750 or less. The bill excludes automotive and boat batteries. The list of tax-exempt items does not include some items referenced by the National Weather Service on the governments readiness website: Suggested supplies such as toilet paper, garbage bags, water, manually powered tools and local maps are missing from the list of objects. Additional items like plasticware and feminine supplies are not covered by the new bill. Even though portable fuel-powered generators will see a sales tax exemption, fuel will not. Historically, fuel prices rise during large natural occurrences, such as tornadoes or hurricanes. Hurricane-preparedness tax relief is one part of a three-part series of sales tax holidays established by Scott.

RIANA MELENDEZAlligator Contributing Writer Riders who usually pay the $3 fee for an All Day bus pass will receive one for no cost on Wednesday. Gainesvilles Amalgamated Transit Union and Regional Transit System are pairing up to provide this Fare Free Day to bring attention to a transportation bill, the MAP-21 Reauthorization Act, going through Congress. Riders can get a pass at the Rosa Parks RTS Downton Station or on the bus. Among other things, MAP-21 provides funding for facilities, new program starts and buses, wrote Chip Skinner, RTS marketing and communications supervisor, in an email interview. The bill will provide long-term funding that will give state and local governments the opportunity to improve and expand the nations transportation infrastructure, according to the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works website Cassandra Roldan, a 23-year-old Gainesville resident, said she regularly buys an All Day pass. Roldan said she appreciates the bus system providing this service, but thinks there should be more done to market the event. They should advertise it on the bus, she said.

Drivers can detour through Southwest Fourth, Southwest Fifth or Southwest 16th avenues to get to Southwest Sixth Street. The reconstruction is promer 2016, Veilleux said. We think two years is a good duration to make it so the contractor will be busy, but he should have time to accommodate for weather and such, he said. Weve got enough time in there to account for delays. The $6.5-million project is funded mostly through a county incentive grant, but also with money from Gainesville Regional Utilities for the utility and wastewater work, Veilleux said. The rest is from local funds, which are bonds owned by the city. The largest part of the project will be the three roundabouts located at Southwest 11th Street, Southwest Sixth Street and South Main Street, which were chosen to better It allows us to keep trafVeilleux said.

Florida has done this before, Fleming said. It is a good way to allow people to stock up. The bill helps people become aware of from these tax holidays, too. The state had a lot more tax revenue coming in, Fleming said. Its a great thing for consumers in Florida. HB 5601 creates sales tax exemptions on child car seats, bicycle helmets, college meal plans, therapeutic pet foods and cement mixers. It also reduces the tax on electricity. This is the largest broad-based tax cut that has been implemented in a decade, according to the website. Steven Milian, an assistant supervisor at Zells Hardware, located on 3727 W. University Ave., was unaware of the new bills passing, but knows customers will take advantage of it. I can only see an advantage to get the supplies that they need, he said. Milian said he knows that items listed on the bill will go up in sales at Zells, and he expects more customers to take advantage of the tax holiday at the store. We dont have any plans for advertisement, Milian said. However, we will be mentioning it to customers. HURRICANE, from page 1Depot Avenue construction closes roads UF HAS SIMILAR RESOURCES. HANNAH FELLAlligator Writerhfell@alligator.orgIn several states, texting 911 for help is the newest way to summon police, but Florida is not among them. Starting last Thursday, select locations in the U.S. can text 911 in an emergency situation, provided their cellphone carrier supports the service, according to the Federal Communications Commission. The FCC proposed a rule that would require all cellphone providers to support this texting feature by Dec. 31. Maj. Brad Barber, spokesman for University Police, said UF already has similar resources. Blue light emergency phone systems are installed around the UF campus, and UPD monitors these phone systems constantly. Any method that helps expedite getting Ivette De Santiago, a 20-year-old UF art and technology junior, said when calling for help, authorities can hear the tone of your voice and sense immediacy.

And my high school required my shorts to hit mid-thigh So imagine my delight when I found out that I could wear anything, from pajamas to dresses so skimpy, they could count as lingerie, to class. But some people are still struggling with dress codes and rules regarding what to put on their own bodies. dress that might cause impure thoughts from males, according to some of the male chaperones. the one rule stipulated by the prom coordinators, according to a blog post Clare wrote last week. This, of course, is complete bull in how gendered it is. It makes sense, though. Most dress codes are gendered, just as this one, which highlights the double standards against women in terms of clothes and body exposure. Many dress codes or standards of dress are stricter toward women because womens bodies are seen as public property. Its more acceptable for men to dictate what is appropriate for women to wear and do, as the male chapIts a normal occurrence for men to judge womens clothing pause for a montage of men saying high-waisted girl say that cargo shorts are unappealing on men. This issue also stems from the fact that female bodies are more sexualized than male bodies.

Not to mention that the body sexual body part.

TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7 Gone are the days of NBCs hit political drama The West Wing, and President is but a distant memory. Although Bartlet was a democratic commander in chief, viewers of all political persuasions gravitated toward the fair-minded and principled president. Amerione from a scripted primetime drama. Contemporary political television shows, its safe to say, are not as inspirational and attention and critical acclaim. Their stories revolve around a presidential affair, a Maa gaffe-prone vice president, respectively. Each of these representations of Washingthe sentiments of the population. The West Wing which spanned the Clinton and second Bush presidencies viewers were hopeful of the promise of the new millennium. Fast forward to today, and the nation has become disillusioned with that promise of hopeful politics. While Americans are fed up with the political status quo, these shows indulge the populations jaded yearnings. Real-life politicians are seen as either worthy of parody on latenight television shows or too out of touch with the common man. Gridlock is commonplace in the capital. But rest assured, citizens, woods take on Washington persuades viewers to entertain a conservative view of the government. the brooding politician whose obsession with power is that of legends, enters into the political arena for all of the wrong reasons. Instead of representing the needs and concerns of his district, he manipulates other politicians, the media and even his constituents for his own gain. Underwood eventually becomes the most powerful man in Washington. As Unspirators, Democracy is so overrated. The conservative critique of this show is stitution, keeping politicians accountable for their actions, limiting the scope of government and enacting term limits, Underwoods rise to power would not take place. power. Should citizens be a little suspicious of those in power? Probably. Now consider the comedy and our actual government, politicians and their staff on the show act in their own self-interest. And like our actual government, comedic situations are always around the corner. Botched press releases and poorly planned book tours staff often ridicule and reprimand each other because of the constant frustration of running the country, partly caused by their own gross ineptness. Despite her future political aspirations, Meyer is unable to control her staff, let alone the No. 2 spot in government. be quick to point out that such characters hold power and operate in the government. That should not surprise anyone. What should surprise many is the fact that Washington insiders are quick to tell the actors and producactually is. The insiders confess that each staff has its own Amy, Gary, Ben and gasp Jonah. To any fan of the show or any fan of our government, that statement should be cause for concern. Then again, if the situations on the causes of the shortcomings in Washington should not be that much of a surprise. Churchill famously said that the best arconversation with the average voter. The the government, provided they do not mess it up. The conservative arguments for these grows too big, when politicians enter into the arena for the wrong reasons, when the media citizenship becomes a spectator sport, these shows become more of a reality. Its easy to laugh at government ineptness or cringe when a congressman reveals his interior motives (or outside of scripted entertainment, the country should become concerned.

STEVEN KATONAAlligator Staff Writerskatona@alligator.orgISLAND GROVE, Fla. Sliding a birdshot round into his Remington 1100 shotgun, Kinnis Thomas takes aim at one of several small, paper targets about 30 yards into a wooded clearing. The 69-year-old pauses for a moment and then peppers the target in one loud bang, hoping to be closer to the bulls-eye than a handful of other contenders and win a delicious prizea rack of ribs. At the Island Grove Blueberry Festival, which took place Saturday in southeast Alachua County, the turkey shoot has been around for many years. Although its certainly one of the highlights of the event, attendees also enjoyed picking blueberries and shopping for mom-and-pop knickknacks throughout the venue. About $10,000 of the events proceeds went to support the Cross Creek Volunteer Fire Department. With smoke blowing from his shotgun barrel, Thomas places his gun on a table and grabs a Diet Pepsi and a chair to eye his competition. I could hear em gobble that time, he said, hoping for a strike. him by his middle name, Kinnis. Living near Island Grove since he was born, Thomas said over the years he has seen the already small town get smaller as farmers moved out of the area. But one of the things that hasnt changed is the turkey shoot, which already won him a rack of ribs. He keeps his winning target folded inside his shirt pocket for safekeeping. Traditionally, winners received vouchers for a free turkey at the local grocery store, but since the holidays arent upcoming, the prize is the slab of pork. They call it a blueberry festival for the lack of calling it something better, he said, laughing. Some women temporarily left their husbands to go shopping through the One man in particular, 83-year-old Donald Faircloth, said he doesnt remember how many times hes been to the blueberry festival but hints that its a lot. Hes been in the Gainesville area since before 43rd Street and 34th Street were even built, a project he had a hand in. from Archer Road to Northwest 16th Avenue, said Faircloth, who worked for a construction company in 1958. Thats as far as it went. Some years earlier, he was a prospective UF student, but before he could start class, he was swept into service by the U.S. Uncle Sam needed my services before I even got started, he said. He served for 10 months before returning home. They shot real bullets at you there, he said. Although some festival-goers like Faircloth have been coming to the Island Grove Blueberry Festival for many years, Floridas blueberry heritage. DiVito, brought homemade hot sauces that go from mild to wild. He gave out free samples of his sauces to spread the word about his LaCrosse-based business. So far today weve only killed seven people, DiVito said, joking. I use lucid dreaming to come up with my recipes. Alachua Countys Aunt Zelmas Blueberries and 301 Blueberries both provided more than 150 cases of berries for the event at discounted prices. Everything from fresh blueberry ice cream to blueberry goat cheese candy was served to children and families at the festival. And for those who arent tired of the violet-hued berries, U-Pick blueberry picking will take place for another two weeks at both farms.

Theyll just have their friends. I think they are just using sanitation as an excuse to enforce conservative values on kids. May 23, 1989 Thanks to a donation to the St. Francis House, the homeless people of Gainesville had something other than water to enjoy with their lunch from the soup kitchen. Nutri-Products donated more than 2,000 servings of their high-protein drink Go!, which was designed to help athletes recover from training. Normally the about 80 homeless people who ate the lunch only got a liquid through vegetable soup. May 21, 2002 The Florida Museum of Natural History said goodbye to a T.rex named Sue. The four-month-long exhibit brought the museum nationwide attention. The Sue exhibit let the community know that the museum is playing in the big leagues, museum associate director Graig Shaak said. He said he estimated attendance to the exhibit of the 42-foot skeleton was nearly 100,000 people. As a follow-up to the popular exhibit, the museum was going to open Tusks! that would show the history of Floridas prehistoric elephants.

EDEN OTEROAlligator Writer@edenotero_lIt was a season of breaking records and defying expectations. Despite Floridas No. 5 rank in the national preseason polls, UF fans were still concerned with the team losing 13 players to graduation in 2013 and replacing them with 11 freshmen. When Florida defeated Ohio State 10-9 on March 22 to improve to 10-2 to start the year, fans began to see the impact of the 11 new additions. So when Florida lost in the 1211 double-overtime game against Northwestern on Saturday, it was a hard pill to swallow for coach Amanda OLeary. Im just really proud of our seniors, what they brought to the table, their leadership, their love, theyre caring and Im sad for them, OLeary said. They gave so much to this program over the course of this four years for Krista (Grabher) and Attacker Sammi Burgess, midOLeary alongside juniors Shannon Gilroy and Nora Barry. Burgess was one of Floridas biggest recruits before the start of the season. The 5-foot-3 attacker never lost a game during her four years at the McDonogh School in Maryland and became known at Florida for being a vital scorer when Gilroy failed. Stevens also came in as a top recruit but she spent her time in high school as an attacker. When Stevens arrived at Florida, OLeary immediSam Darcangelo and Nora Barry, a chance to rest. Stevens completed the season with 38 points and a reputation for her ability to score on the fast break. to player when it needed someone to guard the opponents best scorer. players like Syracuses Kayla Treanor and Northwesterns Alyssa Leonard. The Mount Sinai, N.Y., most caused turnovers on defense (22) and 30 ground balls. Although the freshmen were the Gators biggest and most unexpected story of the year, Gilroy also made a splash in the lacrosse community. The Northport, N.Y., native broke the single-season record for most points (106), goals (86) and goals per game (4.15). Gilroy is the second-best offensive player in the country behind Syracuses Treanor. Even with Gilroy putting points on the board, it wasnt just goals that she brought to the team. In situations like Saturday when Northwesterns defense controlled Floridas scoring opportunities and stopped many of their offensive possessions, Gilroy used her notoriety as an offensive threat to get teammates like Burgess and Barry open for easy goals. I need to worry more about my teammates more than what I need to do to get open because its always ball and get open, Gilroy said. So I needed to be really prepared to help them and do the best I can for them. With the disappointment of not come back in 2015 with one goal in mind: Win a national title. where the Gators would be in the 2015 season and it matched that of Florida fans sentiments. I think the skys the limit for there is nothing but great things to come. 16, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2014 Alligator File Photo WOMENS GOLF LAYNE WEITZELAlligator Writer@laynejweitzelFlorida is returning to the Sooner State for the second time in two weeks.
