Governors give



degree quotas


* HALF OF STATE GRADU-
ATES WOULD RECEIVE DE-
GREES IN NINE FIELDS.

By EMILY YEHLE
Alligator Writer
eyehle@alligator.org

TAMPA UF may graduate
half of its seniors in nine fields
focusing on education, healthcare
and technology in eight years to
meet demands in the job market
and a new state mandate.
That would leave the remain-
ing 50 percent of students to fill
up the more than 200 other degree
programs at UF
The body that oversees Florida's
11 public universities adopted a
goal Thursday that would require
half of Florida graduates to com-
plete certain degree programs by
the 2012-13 academic year.
Some of the university presi-
dents said the Board of Governors'
move would base degrees on
numbers rather than on students'
aspirations.
"I don't know how to tell some-
one who didn't do well in math or
science in high school that they're
going to become a mechanical

Targeted Degree Programs
as adopted by the Board of
Governors

Bachelor's, Master's, Doctorate
and First Professional:

-Healthcare
-Mechanical Science and
Manufacturing
-Natural Science and Technology

engineer," UCF President John
Hitt said.
UF President Bernie Machen
questioned the board's technique
in reaching the state's goals. The
state should convince students to
target these preferred programs
rather than pushing universities
to meet degree quotas, he said.
"We cannot use what I call the
industrial mindset to academics,"
he said.
To alleviate the problems uni-
versities may face in implenting
the board's statewide agenda, the
governors recommended the col-
leges split the burden.
Hypothetically, UF could agree
to graduate 40 percent of the state's
students in the nursing field, leav-
ing other universities to make up
the 10-percent difference.
Although Hitt and Machen
expressed their distaste for such
a move, the board decided to put
some of the planning in the hands
of the State University Presidents'
Association.
The presidents are expected to
make a recommendation to the
board on how the degree per-
centages should be split among
schools.
A new committee also will look
at the list of targeted degrees and
recommend a way to routinely
re-evaluate the list and the gradu-
ation quota.
But Board Vice Chairman John
Dasburg said these goals probably
will remain constant despite re-
evaluations.
"In the real world, that list isn't
going to change," he said.
Board Chairwoman Carolyn
Roberts said she felt confident the
presidents would reconcile the
state's goals with each universi-
ty's strategic plan.
"If they don't buy into it, the
work is less likely to succeed,"
she said.

John's no-show permanent


By MEGAN SEERY
Alligator Staff Writer
mseery@alligator.org


Looks like Elton John isn't com-
ing to Gainesville after all.
A "scheduling conflict" hin-
dered attempts by staff of the
Stephen C. O'Connell Center to
salvage an already-postponed
event, leaving 10,000 paid fans
without the prospect of an evening
with the famed pianist.
SDue to an unknown illness,
John's representatives postponed"
last Sunday's concert just hours
before it was supposed to start.
"We originally postponed the
concert and hoped to have it in the
fall," said Darius Dunn, associate
director of the O'Connell Center,
"but there was a scheduling con-
flict."
The show sold more than 10,000


tickets. Some fans, who drove
hours to see John at the O'Connell
Center and at his other cancelled
dates across the Southeast did not
know of the cancellation until they
arrived, due
to the short
notice.
Refunds
will be issued
for the cost of
purchased tick-
ets and service
John charges, Dunn
said..
John fans who bought tickets
online or by phone will have
refunds mailed back to them au-
tomatically and do'not need to
contact Ticketmaster.
The O'Connell Center did not
lose any money due to the cancel-
lation, Dunn said.
Although he postponed several


tour dates earlier this month, John
performed to sold-out crowds
in South Florida and Orlando
just days prior to his scheduled
Gainesville show. The shows re-
ceived rave reviews.
John recently kicked off a
stateside tour to promote his 2004
album release, "Peachtree Road."
John, who celebrates his 58th
birthday today, is scheduled to
perform in Houston on Saturday.
Craig Mulcahy, a marketing
junior, said he's. bummed that he
won't hear John's popular live
tune "Rocket Man" cose to home.
"It's my favorite song of his be-
cause it reminds me of being back
home in New York," he said.
Critical to the concert's allure
was the convenient, on-campus
venue, he said.
"I'll travel for football games,"
he said, "but not for concerts."

CITY ELECTION PROFILES

District 2 candidates divulge interests, aspirations


Braddy strives to offer easier
Editor's note: These are the final stories
taking a closer look at candidates for the lI
Gainesville City Commission.
By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
smgarry@alligator.org


Ed Braddy is a family man.
With four children under the age of 8 and
no cable television, the history buff's main
hobbies are spending time with his family
and reading.
It was family that inspired him to run for
City Commission in 2003, and now his wife
is helping him run again for District 2, which
includes most of Northwest Gainesville, in
next week's election.
"I think I'm like a lot of people," Braddy
said concerning worrying about where his
children grow up. "Three years ago, I didn't
like the direction the city was going."
Braddy's interest in politics may be
newly found, but Gainesville has called to
him all his life.
Both parents and his sister went to UF,
and since he grew up in the very rural Dixie
County, Gainesville was the "big metropo-
lis" he always aspired to reach.
He spent his first years in Gainesville at
SFCC, where he now works, helping the col-
lege meet standards in student retention.
At UF, he majored in history and fell in
love with America's past. One year, he was
president of the UF Speech and Debate Club,
which may have piqued his, interest in poli-
tics, he said.


way to home ownership


District 2 City Commissioner Ed Braddy hopes the progress he has made with fellow
commissioners will translate into his re-election next Tuesday.
It was there he met his wife Alex, a na- The best places were Massachusetts and
tive of Montreal, Canada, and whose first -Virginia, he said, and he settled on James

study where the country was founded. After his two-year hiatus from


Gainesville, Braddy, Alex and their young
daughter moved into an apartment, then
rented a house and finally bought one.
The experience of earning credit and
saving to buy a house made housing costs a
priority for him on the Commission.
"That's the American Dream for many
families home ownership," he said, and
what he called the cost of "dirt" is keeping
some from achieving that dream.
An excessive permitting process makes
construction companies reluctant to build in
Gainesville, driving up the cost of housing,
Braddy said.
"I would like to see the process made a
little easier," he said.
Another problem in Gainesville is the
commission's tendency toward the "new
urbanist mindset" that stresses transporta-
tion alternatives to driving, which may suit
students but not Gainesville's families.
And he tries to listen to them when mak-
ing decisions, he said. After all, he is an
elected official, and the people of his district
are his bosses, he said.
"I almost always side with the citizens,"
Braddy said. "I serve the people of District 2
- I don't serve the Planning Department."
Braddy thinks the work he and District
3 Commissioner Tony Domenech have done
on the Commission over the past three years
has changed priorities for the better, but he
says there's still more to do.
Serving on the Commission leaves
Braddy with little time for history, which he
used to teach at SFCC.
"One day I'll get back into it," he said.
"I've always enjoyed it."


Thrall focuses on location, ebbing congestion


By IVETTE MENDEZ
Alligator Writer
imendez@alligator.org

Location, location, location.
Grant Thrall, District 2 City Commission candidate
and UF professor, knows location so extensively that he
is famous for it, Thrall said.
"I do not need more fame than I already have," he said
when asked what achievement he'd want to be famous
for. "I've achieved a level of recognition in business loca-
tion."
The candidate started his studies at California State
University, earning a bachelor's degree in business and
economics, before migrating to Ohio State University to
receive a-master's degree in economics and doctorate in
geography and economics.
"I do not need more fame than I already
have. I've achieved a level of recognition in
business location."
Grant Thrall
City Commission candidate


Given his expertise in the field of location, Thrall
published a book entitled "Business Geography and New
Real Estate Market Analysis" in January 2002.
Thrall said he is now looking to do something good for
the community with his location savvy.
District 2 incumbent Ed Braddy, Thrall's opponent,
missed 28 percent of the meetings for the Metropolitan
Transportation Planning Organization, leaving District 2
without adequate representation, Thrall said.
"One of the major problems we have in District 2, as
well as the whole city, is transportation congestion," he
said.
The City Commission hopeful's highest priority, if
elected March 29, is relieving road congestion and, in
turn,.drawing more business opportunities, he said.
The location consultant supports the idea of making
Southwest 24th Avenue business-friendly by widen-


ing the road to four lanes, which would designate it as
mixed-use and give it a better chance of attracting busi-
ness, he added.
"When [stores] make location decisions, they look
at demographics," Thrall said, referring to the placing
of a shopping center. "There are few places in Alachua
County that are as good as that area betweenArcher Road
and Newberry Road."
Also, students shouldn't travel far to go shopping or to
work; work should be near the students, Thrall said.
With University Comers, an upcoming mixed-use de-
velopment of shops and apartments at the intersection of
University Avenue and Northwest 13th Street, there will
be as many as 3,000 new jobs near UF, Thrall said.
"My vision is to have more people living near where
they work," he said.
Thrall talked about the large deficit of parking spaces
on UF's campus and its part in causing more traffic.
Everyone migrates at the same time in the morning to
get a parking space, creating problematic gridlock in the
mornings, he said.
To combat this, Thrall'rides his motorcycle to school
because it is easier to park, he said.
Riding Harley-Davidson bikes is a hobby Thrall and
his wife share. In the summer, they travel to their condo-
minium in Vail, Col. and ride their motorcycles, he said.
As long as Thrall never has to see "Mary Poppins"
again, he said he will be happy the former theater usher
saw the movie so many times that he quit the job.
He would much rather watch Sean Connery movies.
Thrall hopes to foster better relations between
UF and Gainesville if elected, he said. But even with
Thrall's support of projects to benefit students, he does
not agree that a position on the seven-member City
Commission should be dedicated to a UF student or
faculty member.
"The UF property is not part of the city," Thrall said.
"It is state property."
He added that representation is determined by geog-
raphy, not occupation.
"If UF were a district, then certainly that district could
put somebody up for election," he said.
"I decided to run because of good citizenship."


Grant Thrall, posed here with his Harley-Davidson motorcycle,
hopes a business-friendly attitude will attract city development.

CITY ELECTION ISSUES

Candidates tackle path to healthy UF relationship


Editor's note: This is fourth in a series of
articles examining some of the issues
being contested in the City Commission
election races.
By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
smgarry@alligator.org

As one of the few true college towns in
America, Gainesville has a complicated re-
lationship with UF, and when citizens cast
their ballots next week to vote in three City
Commission races, they will in part be de-
ciding how the commission will handle the
unique issues that face a college town.
Incumbent Ed Braddy and UF professor
Grant Thrall, the candidates for the District
2 seat, are especially attuned to the problems
of students living in single-family housing be-
cause they represent the area along University
Avenue where students, apartment buildings
and family housing mix.
Students can be unwelcome neighbors


in family neighborhoods because they are
noisier, less likely to maintain their yard and
house, have more cars and park their cars on
the lawn, the candidates said.
Braddy said living in family neighborhoods
can be a learning experience for students, but
they need to understand the responsibilities of
living in a house.
"I think it's a good thing if it's handled
right," Braddy said.
The city already has ordinances in place,
such as restrictions on how many unrelated
people can live in a single-family house and
regulations on parking, that try to alleviate the
problem.
Braddy said the best solution would be
to enforce those regulations and continue to
fund the Party Patrol, a special service of the
Gainesville Police Department that writes cita-
tions to hosts of noisy parties.
Students parking too many cars for one
house and parking on the lawn is hurting
property values in College Park, the area north
of UF along University Avenue, Thrall said.


"This is not a unique situation to College
Park or the University of Florida," Thrall said.
"It's a classic land-use problem."
But Thrall said the commission should not
make more legislation to combat the problem
because the city has ample
ordinances to deal with it;
they simply need to be en-
forced more.
"If we have laws, those
laws should be upheld,"
Thrall said. "And if we're
not serious about uphold-
Ac ing those laws, we should
Machen remove them from the
books."
UF President Bernie Machen has plans to
move the university into the ranks of Top 10
public research universities, and both candi-
dates said they would help the president in
any way they could.
But Thrall and Braddy were reluctant to
support Machen's initiative to reduce student
binge drinking if it included limited bar spe-


cials and advertising.
The city cannot regulate advertising of
drink specials, and it would need state ap-
proval to do so, Braddy said.
Thrall said he would not support interven-
ing in businesses' pricing to regulate drink
specials.
"I expect people to behave in a respon-
sible manner," Thrall said, adding that the city
should look at alternative ways to curb drink-
ing, such as enforcing ordinances that discour-
age serving alcohol to drunk customers.
Braddy said he does not support extending
bar hours to 3 a.m. because he has not seen
any evidence that it will provide a benefit to
public safety. People may simply absorb more
alcohol into their blood during the extra hour,
he said.
It also may have "unintended consequenc-
,es," such as requiring more public funds to
keep police oult longer, he said.
"It's far more complicated than this notion
of people sitting around, drinking coffee and
sobering up," he said.


GPD wants salary, benefit hikes


* OFFICERS CLAIM THAT, DE-
SPITE GPD'S SIZE, PAY RATES
ARE LOWER THAN MOST.

By ELIZABETH PRANN
Alligator Writer
eprann@alligator.org

The City Commission elections
may bring new members to the team
that Gainesville Police hope will fi-
nally honor their archaic requests.
Jeff McAdams, GPD officer and
district president of the Fraternal
Order of Police, said he has tried to
negotiate salaries and benefits with
the Commission since June 2004.
He said GPD is one of the 10 larg-
est agencies in Florida, but its officers
are paid at the bottom of the scale.
McAdams' proposal consists of a
salary increase for officers of about
26 percent over the next three years
as well as benefits such as allow-
ing the officers to live outside the
city and allotting them take-home
vehicles.

1t


He said his proposal is propoi-
tionate to that of other cities and that
he is merely asking, for what will
prevent officers from leaving.
"We have the second-highest
turnover rate," he said. "We've be-
come a training ground."
McAdams said this high turnover
rate was not the case eight years
ago and that unless officers start
seeing competitive wage benefits,
Gainesville is not going

Not only did he pres-i
ent the issue nearly a
year ago, he attempted to educate
a number of conmmi-sioner_- on the
issue, such as ['.-,trIct 2 incumbent
Ed Braddy and At-Large incumbent
Rick Bryant, both up for, re-elec-
tiorr next week, as well as County
Commissioner Cynthia Chestnut.
, McAdams conducted a survey
that showed a 90 percent rate of high
job satisfaction among GPD officers.
"They love their job," he said.
However, 88 percent of those


officers said they were considering
leaving for better wage and benefits.
And when comparing salaries to that
of Tallahassee officers, an area with
similar characteristics to Gainesville,
records show a $7,500 higher differ-
ence in salary every year.
-"We are not going to work for
free," he said.
GPD spokesman Keith Kameg
said there are a little over 280 posi-
triL.rnt- Illd in GPD, and last year they
received about $25 million $19 mil-
lion of which went to salaries.
Kameg 'said salaries went up,
especially between 2002 and 2003,
but that is because the city annexed
about 22,000 people during that
time. His agency hired about 20 new
officers for all-ranks, he said.
Kameg said Gainesville is more
than just a college town it is a grow-
ing city, and public safety should be
a. No. 1 issue for community leaders.
"We hope that people who get
elected realize the importance of
public safety in the community,"
Kameg said.

Residents claim police brutality in early-morning raid


By ELIZABETH PRANN
Alligator Writer
eprann@alligator.org

Four Gainesville residents claim they
were just watching television early Sunday
morning when officers from the Alachua
County Sheriff's Office and Gainesville Police
Department entered the apartment they were
gathered in, searched it and handcuffed them
at gunpoint without any stated justification.
Jon Adams, of 3406 NW 21st Ave., said his
girlfriend and two friends were relaxing at his
East Side Garden Apartments unit, 309 NE
Ninth St. No. 44, when the four were startled
by an officer appearing at an open window
with a gun, ordering the men outside.
They were told to kneel -and were hand-
cuffed, still without being told why.
"We were given no reason.why until later,


when they realized that they were wrong and
set us free," Adams said. "If he slips and pulls
a trigger, we're dead."
Adams provided names and badge num-
bers of six officers but said eight to 10 were
present. He said some refused to give names.
"They don't have the right to point guns
at us or search the house without a warrant,"
Adams said. "We didn't do anything... they
made a lot of mistakes."
ASO spokesman Jim Troiano said an ASO
officer responded to a call from a woman
who walked by the residence and claimed to
hear screaming and see two men assaulting a
woman with a knife.
"Some lady just looked in the window, but
we were all watching TV," Adams said
He added the officers immediately hand-
cuffed all three and would not give their rea-
soning before they brought in a police dog to
search the apartment without a warrant.


"They don't have the right to point
guns at us or search the house
without a warrant. We didn't do
anything... they made a lot of
mistakes."
Jon Adams
Gainesville resident

However, reports state the dog was brought
in to clear the residence for safety reasons.
The reports also stated that after law en-
forcement entered the apartment, Adams' girl-
friend, Amada Perez, said they were watching
a movie and sharpening a knife to see who
could make it stick into the ground the best.
Adams denied weapons were present.
In addition, Troiano said -reports indicate
Adams appeared to be intoxicated, and the


room had a strong odor of marijuana smoke.
Perez said she was so scared, she almost fell
to the floor because her legs felt like jelly.
She said she repeatedly asked what was go-
ing on, but no one would answer. She was taken
to the side of the residence, away from the three
men, and questioned about her alleged assault
while the men remained in handcuffs.
"He said a woman said I was being assault-
ed at knifepoint," Perez said. "He realized it
was absolutely wrong."
However, Troiano said his agency handled
everything correctly, including ASO Sgt. Scott
Anderson, the officer in charge.
"I think [Anderson] handled himself appro-
priately," he said. "As soon as he found out this
was not the case, he went to uncuff the men."
Troiano said he even gave one of the young
men his business card.
"He can file a complaint," he said. "We take
that very seriously."

OFF THE AVENUE

"Dream" is without a doubt magical


L eonardo DiCaprio in the role of
Romeo was one thing; watching
than Hawke in "Hamlet" walking
a Blockbuster Video store was another.
"AMidsummer Night's Dream" at the
Constans Theatre does something right.
Shakespeare would fantasize about
this fresh version of one of his most
popular plays. With a large cast of both
actors and dancers, director Judith
Williams must have known she had the
talent to create something big.
This version of "Midsummer" has
a consistent flow unlike any traditional
Shakespeare. A cast of dancers grace the
stage as a group of fairies, living in their
own world yet interfering with mortal
lovers all the same. Their elegance and
agility transcend the actual plot as they


S use their ac-
robatic- skills

aroundstrands

Heather Berger metal rings
Curtain Call dangling from
hberger@alligator.org the ceiling.
Watching any-
thing but the
fairies seemed difficult, so it worked out
when they left the'stage for awhile.
Never before have I seen anyone sing
Shakespeare. A small orchestra sounds at
all the correct moments, adding vibrance
to a play with such long verse that one
could easily get-tired of watching. The
actors let out a few notes, just enough to


make the point but not enough to turn
the play into a musical. Adding song and
dance complement the play perfectly,
without turning it into "Midsummer: A
Laser Light Spectacular."
The fairies' sparkling feather head-
dresses and bodysuits made them beau-
tifully supernatural. The dazzling colors
and shimmer set a captivating stage,
while the mortals donned the same col-
ors with a subdued look.
It would be a travesty to leave out
the fine acting in this play. The words of
Shakespeare are difficult to comprehend,
but the actors manage to deliver their
message through tone and body move-
ment. It seems as though they studied
the meaning of his language and truly
understand what they are saying.


Pollen count may


cause irritation

* A WARM WINTER MAY HAVE CAUSED A BOOM
IN POLLEN PRODUCTION AND MORE ALLERGIES.

By JOHN W. COX
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF sophomore David Godwin rolled out of bed, licked
his dry, cracked lips and tried to breathe through his nose.
His eyes stung, and his body itched.
"My eyes were so red I couldn't put my contacts in," he
said. "I cursed a little bit and then went down to the store
to get some Claritin."
Godwin was victimized by a common enemy to
Gainesville allergies.
A huge pollen count may wreak havoc for allergy suffer-
ers in Gainesville, said Antonio Bunker-Soler, an allergist
for Florida Allergy & Asthma Specialists.
"I think it's going to be a boom year," he
Public -said.
Health Allergies are a problem for Gainesville resi-
dents every year, said Madhukar Punja, Allergy
Immunology Consultants allergist.
"Every year is worse than the last year," he said.
Punja said a warm winter has contributed to the large
number of pollen and mold allergy sufferers this year.
"If we have a good freeze during the winter, we have
less pollen," he said. "We did not have a good freeze this
year."
Bunker-Soler said people often mistake colds and other
sicknesses for allergies; if you sneeze several times a day,
you probably have allergies and need to see a doctor.
Locals may have to suffer at least until April, said David
M. Jarzen, UF palynology research associate.
Jarzen, who studies pollen, said this time of year is prob-
ably the worst for people with allergies.
Jarzen said moisture allows pollen and mold to thrive
year-round. Billions of allergy-causing spores are pro-
duced by Gainesville's large number of trees.
"Here on campus we're just surrounded'by trees," he
said. "They're everywhere."
Jarzen said that although pollen causes many symp-
toms, mold is responsible for many allergic reactions.
Mold can be very dangerous, said Paul Brennan,
Millennial Health Services Inc. founder.
"One mold spore becomes 33 million," he said. "It's go-
ing to turn your house into a Chia Pet if you don't take care
of it."
People can use air filters and stay on an enzyme diet to
protect themselves from mold's dangers, Brennan said.
People with severe allergies should stay indoors on
windy days and take over-the-counter drugs, Jarzen said.
"I've been medicating a lot lately," Godwin said. "That
seems to help."

Editorial
There's a special feeling in the air, which comes along about
this time every year. No, not the onset of spring we're talking
about the official end of Student Government elections. And it's
about time.
Now that the elections finally are over, we can all return to
our normal lives which mostly means not caring about SG
for another year.
Who are we kidding? Judging by the voter turnout, the
students didn't really care that much about the elections, either.
Not that the candidates and ourselves haven't tried every-
thing short of pudding wrestling to get them interested.
But while all of the discussion recently has been focused on
the misadventures of our student politicians, a lot of craziness
from the UF administration has crept along unnoticed.
Luckily, we here at the Department of Darts & Laurels were
careful to take some time off from the campaign trail to scribble
some of these things down onto the napkins we've accumulated
from the various functions we've had to attend every day.
So don't put that suit away quite yet. Get your lobbying
muscles ready and give your favorite administrator.a call as we
head into this week's edition of...



Darts & Laurels

Kicking things off with a warning to any other universities
who decide to hire Mickey Mouse's PR managers to revamp
their image, we toss a we-know-you-procrastinated-the-whole-
thing-and-ended-up-spending-five-minutes-in-Photoshop
DART to UF branding consultants Howard Pickett and Pete
Hanley for offering a ridiculous'new university logo as part of
the new "brand essence" it has outlined for UF.
In case you didn't see the comparison in Tuesday's Alligator,
the new logo is the old logo with the UF seal removed, the word
"university" in a smaller font and the phrase "a lifetime experi-
ence" added to the bottom.
In short, they removed the only graphic element of the logo,
made the text unbalanced and added a sappy catchphrase.
The inherent silliness of the phrase aside, hasn't the admin-
istration been preaching a drive toward getting students out in
four years? It seems like the last thing they would want is to
make the university experience last a "lifetime."
Moving on to an entirely unsurprising example of the prob-
lems with students' access we've been harping on all semester,
we give a you-still-seem-not-to-be-getting-the-point-of-this-
whole-representation-thing DART to the UF Board of Trustees
for declining to allow SG or Graduate Assistants United to
speak out against the $50 international students fee during the
public comment section of their meeting Monday.
Student Senator Robin Collins said a reason why the board
decided not to allow SG and GAU a chance to address-them was
because GAU already had petitioned the Board of Governors
on the same issue.
This is about the same as your dad refusing to sign a permis-
sion slip for a class field trip because you asked your mom first,
even though she hadn't had time to get around to it yet.
Because we're so happy about saving money even if 'the
future still isn't looking all that rosy, we give a we-know-you're-
still-out-to-get-us-but-we-won't-look-a-gift-horse-in-the-mouth
LAUREL to the UF administration for choosing not to push for
block tuition in this session of the Florida Legislature.
Had UF wrested control of in-state tuition from the
Legislature, as it originally intended to attempt, students would
have been robbed of their ability to lobby against block tuition
and tuition hikes.
Sneaking in right on the last one's heels, we make this the
first multi-Laurel edition in more than a month by bestowing
a we-have-to-give-credit-where-it's-sort-of-due LAUREL to
Jamal Sowell, the Florida Students Association and SG for
their continuing efforts to oppose block tuition.
We're not sure how much they actually factored into UF's
decision, but we have to give them respect for working so hard.
to represent the voice of the students.
Heck, we'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

Republicans waffling on involvement


D id somebody spike the Republican Kool-Aid? I
thought conservatives were against big govern-
ment; that's why they oppose "socialist pro-
grams" like welfare and universal health care, right?
Yet, almost overnight, Republicans have decided they
want the government to interfere in all sorts of differ-
ent things. The funny thing is the aspects of our society
they're meddling with are ones that don't need any
help.
Take Terri Schiavo, for instance. Thanks to over-
whelming press coverage, every man, woman and child
in America now is an expert on her case, and Congress
is no different. Bill Frist should determine whether she
can recover, not the two neurologists who examined
her firsthand. Tom DeLay should have the final say in
the matter, not the judge who has actually heard testi-
mony. And President George W. Bush knows better than
anyone that Terri Schiavo endorses a "culture of life,"
certainly more so than her husband Michael. Have the
Republicans all gone insane?
With the passage of the "Palm Sunday Compromise,"
Congress has made an overnight decision that complete-
ly disrupts the process we have in place, which, I might
add, was working just fine. There are 35,000 people in
this country in a persistent vegetative state. Is Congress
going to intervene on the behalf of all of them? Of course
not. This is an obvious and disgusting political ploy, evi-
denced by the Republican strategists who told senators
Schiavo is "a great political issue" that could excite "the
pro-life base" and hurt Democrats.
By the way, if the Republican Kool-Aid has been
spiked, then the Democrat Kool-Aid has been laced
with sedatives, because they have been docile as Hindu
cows lately, to paraphrase Tyler Durden. How else
are the Republicans allowed to spend so much time
politicizing something Congress shouldn't even be
involved in? For the past two weeks, our legislative

Andrew Meyer or go homeless, but it is important
Uncommon Sense to make sure they aren't sticking
etters@alligator.org needles in their ass.
Speaking of asses, that re-
minds me: Rep. Dennis Baxley
has discovered that college professors skew toward the
liberal (gasp, really?). In order to curb rampant leftist
dictatorial propaganda, Baxley spearheaded the creation
of a bill that will make sure those wacko evolutionists
are taken to court. I, for one, have been waiting for a se-
quel to the Scopes monkey trial for a while now, so this
is good news for me. Seriously though, I know I'm not
in charge of giving out the "Darts" around here, but I
would love to give Baxley one right in the buttocks.
Is this really what our politicians spend their time
on? Liberal professors, jacked up ballplayers and one
informed woman in a Florida hospital? I'm glad that's
where taxpayers' money is going anywhere but those
dastardly soup kitchens and homeless shelters.
So, let's review. Republicans claim to oppose uni-
versal health insurance and welfare because they feel
government should be small and perform only certain
critical functions (which don't include helping the sick
or the poor). Apparently, the" real purpose of govern-
ment, in their view, is to create a Big Brother state in pro-
fessional sports, universities and hospitals everywhere.
I guess the "culture of life" only.applies if a person is
starving in a hospital bed, not if he or she is starving on
the streets.

Letters to the Editor
Column right in idea, wrong in specifics
Editor: Although Graduate Assistants
United Co-President Victor Romano general-
ly is correct in his stance regarding UF's $50-
per-semester "international student fee," his
argument in his March 24 guest column was
a bit off the mark. In response to International
Center Dean Dennis Jett's argument that for-
eign students should pay for the Student and
Exchange Visitor Information System because
they are the ones who utilize the service,
Romano argued the university traditionally
distributes costs for services to all students
rather than just the students who utilize the
service, and that it is therefore unfair to only
charge foreign students for SEVIS.
The problem with Romano's reasoning is
that SEVIS is not a service provided to foreign
students. SEVIS is a database maintained by
the Department of Homeland Security that
compiles and archives information about the
activities of foreign students. SEVIS is of no
perceivable benefit to foreign students and
could only be considered a "service" for them
in the sense that a stallion "services" a mare.
SEVIS clearly is an anti-terrorism service in-
tended to benefit all American citizens, not
foreign students. As such, it only is fair for
everyone to chip in and pay for it. Charging
foreign students for SEVIS almost exactly is
analogous to a police department billing a

Apathy in SG elections is embarrassing
Editor: Midnight brought the dark news
that the Gator Party had won the Student
Government elections. Not only was it ob-
vious Gator was the party to elect if you
wanted political Greeks to control Student
Government, but your paper did a very fine
job of bringing to light the kinds of things
Gator did to win this election.
What was more shocking and disappoint-
ing was the vast level of apathy from the
students at this school. I really was stunned.
For the first election, I can maybe understand
the low turnout because of the rainy weather
on both election days. But, for this runoff, the
weather was nice both days. Again, and even
more so, students stayed away in droves.

Everybody whines when costs increase
Editor: This is my second letter respond-
ing to someone haranguing foreign students
for voicing their displeasure regarding the
SEVIS fee. I am tired of insular sentiments
voiced by people like Mark Ou.
"Whining" about money is universal. We
all "whine" when our expenditures go up un-
expectedly. Whining is not the sole privilege
of Americans. No doubt Ou's parents would
have "whined" if an additional $100 ,had
been added to their annual expenses.
We are not charity cases. We were accept-
ed into UF because we met the requirements,
and we are here because we maintain the


FRIDAY, MARCH 25, 2005 0 ALLIGATOR, 7


required GPA. We are whining because this
additional cost was not stipulated. Incoming
foreign students should be aware of these
fees in advance.
We came here with goals, and we are not
leaving here until we achieve them. We will
continue to "whine" when we feel the pinch
financially whether our issues are ad-
dressed or ignored.

Students show lack of confidence in SG
Editor: I voted online in the Student
Honors Organization election this Tuesday,
and below the little radio buttons demarcat-
ing the candidates for each position lay one
that read "No confidence," and it got me to
thinking: The more than 80 percent of stu-
dents who didn't participate in this Spring's
Student Government election sent a pretty
clear message about their faith in the system,
and it amounted to a vote of no confidence.
With millions of their dollars on the table,
maybe it's them that we should be listening
to.

'Soldiers' author: End war in Iraq


-By DAN ONEY
Alligator Contributing Writer

An award-winning war journalist and
acclaimed author called for the withdrawal
of U.S. troops from Iraq before a crowd of
more than 250 Thursday night in Carleton
Auditorium.
Joe Galloway, co-author of "We Were
Soldiers Once... and Young," discussed the
irredeemable costs of the war in Iraq.
In his speech, titled "Iraq two years
and counting was it worth it, when will it
end," Galloway said the war cost too much
money and too many lives.
"He is an experienced war correspon-
dent who was been covering wars for a
number of years," said Dean Dennis Jett
of UF's International Center, which co-
sponsored the speech. "He is a very capable
person to offer his assessment of what's
happening over there."
Galloway's service as a war correspon-


dent spanned 22 years and many locations,
including the former Soviet Union, Japan,
India and four tours in Vietnam. He also
rode with the 24th Infantry Mechanized
Division in the first Gulf War.
"This makes me trust him even
more. It shows he values the life
of a soldier and shows he isn't
afraid to get dirty."
Danny Waters
SUFjunior and Iraq War veteran

"I think the purpose of the university
opportunity is to discuss interesting issues,
even controversial ones," Jett said. "I hope
students will reflect on the current conflict
in Iraq and the daily sacrifice there."
The crowd, which included war veter-
ans, seemed receptive to Galloway's mes-
sage.
"I am for the war in Iraq, but I always


like hearing what other people think," said
Danny Waters, a UF junior and Iraq War
veteran. "He is a 'been there, done that'
kind of guy, so I trust his opinion over oth-
ers'."
Galloway also was awarded the Bronze
Star for Valor for rescuing soldiers during
the Vietnam War, the only such medal given
to a civilian during that war.
"This makes me trust him even more,"
Waters said. "It shows he values the life of
a soldier and shows he isn't afraid to get
dirty."
UF junior and retired Marine Corps
Sergeant Mario Corcilli said Galloway's
experience has sparked the respect of both
veterans and journalists.
"We didn't bring Joe here because he's
reading off a doctrine we believe in,"
Corcilli said, who is also president of the
UF Collegiate Veterans Society, one of the
speech's co-sponsors. "He brings a respect-
ed opinion. Regardless of what his opinion
is, he's got good standing to give it."

Although the 50-percent goal would
affect bachelor, graduate and professional
degrees, only the bachelor degrees are ex-
pected to be affected because they are pro-
jected to lag behind the goal.
In other board news, members learned of
legislation that could limit their oversight of
state universities.
A bill, which is before the state House of
Representatives, would further define the
board's duties, but the board apparently has
not had any input.
The bill comes in the wake of a lawsuit
and criticism that the board should be sepa-
rate and independent from Tallahassee law-
makers, as the voters intended when they
approved the board's creation.
State Rep. Dudley Goodlette, R-Naples,
said his new legislation aims to make that
distinction by defining the board as a part of
the executive branch with the authority to
manage and enforce the Legislature's rules.
Amid UF officials' efforts to gain con-
Strol of setting tuition, the bill also clearly
puts that authority in the hands of the
Legislature.
"I'm hopeful that if you see it as we do -
that the goal we have here is not in any way
for this to be confrontational," Goodlette,
who was not present at the meeting, said via
a speakerphone.
Members asked Goodlette to clarify
some- of the bill's stipulations, but none
confronted him on its language. Although
Goodlette said he was open to suggestions
from the board, he also was confident about
the bill's future.
"I frankly do believe that it will pass this
legislative session," he said, adding, "I think
it's good for us to work collaboratively."
Roberts said that the governors and
Goodlette might disagree on some things,
but she was pleased that he invited the
board to open conversations about the bill.
She added that it was premature to speci-
fy some of the bill's sticking points.
"There are no great university systems
that don't have a good relationship with the
legislature," she said several times during
the meeting..

Greeks don miniskirts, wigs to benefit the deaf


* ZETA BETA TAU FRATER-
NITY WAS THE OVERALL
WINNER OF THE FESTIVITIES.


By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
kcraig@alligator.org


UF men donned miniskirts,
garters, pantyhose and wigs
Thursday night at Delta Zeta
Sorority's second-annual
Turtlepalooza.
Sixteen of UF's fraternities
competed in the event held
at Brick City Music
Greek Hall, which included
Life dance performances

and contests as part
of a philanthropy benefiting
Galluadet University, located in
Washington, D.C.
Galluadet is the only four-year
liberal arts school in the world
devoted to the needs, instruc-
tion and training of young deaf
people.
It is Delta Zeta's national phi-
lanthropy.
Among the celebrity judges
were UF basketball players Matt
Walsh and Anthony Roberson,
along with UF cheerleader Katie
Forman and UF lacrosse coach
Thi Lei.
Lei and Walsh said they de-
cided to help out because of

their close ties with some of the
sorority's members.
"They said it's for a good
cause, and we're doing it for
friends," Walsh said. "It's not like
working. It's been fun."
The performers were judged
on originality, props and cos-


tumes.
Prizes also were given out
between the routines for an Elvis
impersonation dance contest.
Delta Zeta philanthropy chair-
woman Christina Ramos said she
saw a lot of pelvic thrusting and
Elvis impersonations because


of the event's Las Vegas casino
theme.
Contestants from Pi Kappa
Phi Fraternity strayed slightly
from the theme though, perform-
ing a choreographed dance to a
medley of rap songs, finishing
with a break-dance routine.


Ramos said the event went
better than expected.
"Our dancers are more excited
than we thought they'd be, which
is awesome," she said.
Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity
member Jarod Jaffey showed up
to perform wearing a blonde wig
and a miniskirt.
"We're performing 'Lady
Marmalade' and I'm Christina
Aguilera," Jaffey said referring to
the 2001 remake of Patti Labelle's
1975 hit.
Jaffey said he and his friends
wore such extreme outfits be-
cause if they were going to per-
form, they wanted to go all out.
The overall winner was Zeta
Beta Tau Fraternity with it's skit
made up of several commercial
jingles.
i The fraternity won a $750 so-
cial at Cabana Cove.
In second place, Tau Kappa
Epsilon Fraternity received a
free catered breakfast for all of its
members.
Best-dance honors went to
Beta Theta Pi Fraternity, which
was awarded with a Hooters VIP
wing party.
Turtlepalooza, which raises
money through penny voting,
T-shirt sales and attendance,
is expected to raise $3,000 for
Galluadet.

Greeks focus on unity


By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
kcraig@alligator.org

UF Greeks held their first-ever council
unity meeting Wednesday, with nearly every
Greek chapter president in attendance.
The Interfratemity Council, Panhellenic
Council, Multicultural Greek Council and
National Pan-Hellenic Council joined to dis-
cuss ways to improve the Greek community.
MGC President Kristymarie Flores said a
main focus of the meeting was bringing the
four councils together.
"We're a community," Flores said. "What
one of us does affects all of us."
She added that non-Greek students at UF
may not know which organizations are parts
of which council, so unity is a top priority.
"When people at UF hear Alpha Beta
Gamma, they don't think this sorority or that
fraternity, they think Greek," she said.
Council leaders also discussed events pro-
moting unity, such as Greek Advance and the
Greeks for Life blood drive.


IFC President John Dicks said the commu-
nity was excited about the events' success.
"The meeting was kind of a celebration
of what we'd done so far," Dicks said. "We
talked about where we've been and where
we can go from here."
IFC Vice President Jeremy Martin agreed,
adding that unity will "make all of our pro-
grams that much better because we get to
learn from everybody else's experiences."
Panhellenic Council
On President Ashley Gomberg
CampuS said council unity was always
a priority but is getting put into
action the most this year.
"Every year we get closer and closer to
becoming more united," Gomberg said. "I
think when we [council presidents] started
our terms, the four of us were really passion-
ate about making this a reality."
The four councils also decided to hold
unity meetings once a semester and start -a
Greek listserv to improve communication.
"The more united we are, the easier it will be
for us to make a lasting impact," Flores said.


RESEARCH

Fossil may refute theory


By SKYLER SMITH
Alligator Writer
ssmith@alligator.org
The long-held scientific theory that
many mammals, along with other
animal groups, originated in Africa may
have a few loopholes in it, according to
a new study by scientists from UF and
Johns Hopkins University.
In the Wyoming badlands, an area of
severe erosion, researchers have found
fossils of an elephant shrew, which is in
the same family as elephants, aardvarks
and sea cows, said Jonathan Bloch, a pa-
leontologist with UF's Florida Museum
of Natural History.
"We found a very primitive, very
old fossil" dated at 54 million years old,
Bloch said.
He said the bones are evidence
that this mammal originated in North
America and then migrated to Africa.
This contradicts the popular Afrotheria
idea -- that many species are native to
Africa and traveled to other continents.
Elephant shrews are "tiny little hop-
ping mammals," Bloch said, and were
once thought to have originated in


Africa. But his team's evidence points to
the shrews migrating there instead.
There, in relative isolation, the mam-
malian species could have evolved into
the huge, modem elephants in Africa.
"This is significant because it
shows there was more inter-
change upon the breakage of
Gondwana than we previously
thought."
Jonathan Bloch
paleontologist

Millions of years ago, Gondwana, a
large part of the giant supercontinent
Pangea, began to split apart into the con-
tinents of modem day, Bloch said.
As Gondwana split, land bridges
existed for years, allowing animals to
migrate to different continents.
"This is significant because it shows
there was more interchange upon the
breakage of Gondwana than we previ-
ously thought," Bloch said.
Findings were published in this
month's issue of the journal Nature.

City debate today


On campus;

starts at noon

By IVETTE MENDEZ
Alligator Writer
imendez@alligator.org

Walking through the Reitz
Union Colonnade for the past
two weeks has been like running
a Student Government campaign
gauntlet, and it's not over yet.
With SG elections over, the
Local Empowerment Action Plan
will be filling the void with a
series of three debates co-spon-
sored and moderated by The
Alligator starting at noon today.
Founded by UF student Matt
Jones, LEAP is a branch of the
Office of Community Service.
Seven of the nine commission
hopefuls vying for three seats in
the race culminating March 29
are confirmed to attend.
"Students finally have an op-
portunity to see how city gov-
ernment impacts their life, and
it goes far beyond bar closing
times," Jones said..
The debates begin with the
two candidates for the District 2
seat, which represents residents


in Northwest Gainesville.
District 3, which includes
the areas south and southwest
of UF's campus, will be next at
1 p.m. with the exception of in-
cumbent Tony Domenech, who
will be out of town.
Three of the four At-Large
candidates, for whom any resi-
dent within Gainesville can cast
a ballot, will have their turn
beginning at 2 p.m. Candidate
Diyonne McGraw has yet to con-
firm her attendance.
"The on-campus debates will
show us which of these candi-
dates are willing to
On listen to the student
Campus body," Jones said. "I
think the fact that
they're coming on campus shows
that they think student issues are
relevant."
The candidates will be asked
in-depth questions so attendees
can better understand the influ-
ence thle commissioners have in
their lives.
"*We're making an effort to
branch out beyond traditional
student issues," Jones said. "I
think students make up such a
large percentage of the popula-
tion that we have the potential to
have a resounding voice."

UF ROUNDUP

Lochte sticks to his word, sets records in NCAAs


Apparently Ryan Lochte lives up
to his promises.
After setting world records
in numerous events during the
Southeastern Conference champion-
ships last month, the junior said he
would swim-even faster at NCAAs.
Thursday night, he did exactly
that by setting American, U.S. Open
and NCAA records. After finishing
second in the morning preliminar-
ies to Auburn's Eric Shanteau in
the 200-yard Individual Medley,
Lochte improved his time by
nearly three seconds in the finals
to demolish Shanteau and the rest
of the crowd. In doing so, Lochte
trashed his old record that he set
at SECs with a time of 1:41.71,sur-
passing the record by half a tenth
of a second. Coach Gregg Troy has
never been surprised about Lochte,
but that still doesn't take away
from Lochte's knack for breaking
records.
_ "Ryan had quite an outstanding,
feat being two and a half seconds
ahead of the field," Troy said. "It's a
really great start for him."


While no one else may have set
records like Lochte, the Gators still
were able to receive some points
from other competing athletes.
As his time at UF continues to
dwindle, senior diver Zach Wilcox
garnered fifth place in the one-
meter springboard. Having a diver
contribute points to 'le field, Troy
feels, could pro-
Svide the Gators
with a major
advantage.
.~ "Zach Wilcox
was outstanding
on springboard,"
S.Troy said.
Troy "Getting points
out of diving is
always a plus."
Still, it was not just individu-
als that made the finals in events
Thursday night. Both Gators relay
teams advanced to their champion-
ship finals. The 400 Medley Relay
team made sixth place while the 200
Freestyle relay made eighth. But if
UF is to finish in'the top-three, the
Gators will not get there with these


finishes.
"We could have improved on our
relays," Troy said. "Our starts could
have been better, but I'm really
proud of how our guys performed."
Although the Gators currently sit
in a disappointing fifth place, Troy
knows that UF is still in contention
and remains focused on the positive
aspects of the meet.
"It's our best first day ever," Troy
said. "To win a team championship
you have to be a team and they're
pulling together."

BRIAN STEELE

COOKERLY WINS 10K: After a hot
night at Percy Beard Track, several
UF athletes are going home happy.
At the first full day of The Coca-
Cola Florida Relays, one UF athlete
qualified for NCAA regionals and a
second won her event outright.
Junior Rachel Longfors placed
fourth in the women's open ham-
mer throw with a toss of 58.07 me-
ters, qualifying her for the regional
championships. UF alumni Erin


Gilreath won the event with a toss
of 66.30 meters.
Carling Cookerly won the 10K
run with a time of 37:25.15.
The senior trailed Warner
Southern's Talisa Bishop for the first
24 laps of the race before making her
move on the backstretch. Cookerly
passed Bishop with less than 200
meters left in the
6.2-mile race.
"When you
Finish a 10K you
Feel good," said
Cookerly, who
finished second
in the event in
Ca. Cookerly last year's Florida
Relays. "You're
just glad to see that end."
Senior Mallory Dunn finished
fourth in the race with a time of 38:
26.52 and Cookerly's sister, Charlie
Cookerly, finished eighth with a
time of 39:47.68.
"It wasn't a fast race," women's
coach Tom Jones said. "But [Carling
Cookerly] will run faster later on."
In addition, freshman Lindsay


Sundell placed third in the 3,000-
meter steeplechase.
The men's distance runners
dominated the night, winning the
steeplechase, the 5,000 and 10,000-
meter runs, while a UF alumnus
won the 1,500.
For the men, freshman Henok
Lechebo pulled away in the sixth
lap of the 5,000-meter to take the
race with a time of 14:48, while
senior Brent Schneider and fresh-
man Ryder Leary placed third and
fourth, respectively.
Also, junior Cory Presnick won
the 10K with a time of 31:20.04.
Presnick won the event last year
with a time of 30:39.04. Senior Alex
Phipps took second in the event
with a time of 31:42.18.
Daniel Parker won the steeple-
chase by a 10-second margin, de-
feating Illinois' Maciej Sniegorski 9:
06.51 to 9:16.16.
UF alumni Moise Joseph beat
former teammate Shane Stroup in
the 1,500-meter, winning with a time
of 3:47.29.

Summit.
Surely the university owes
her the opportunity to take
over the mess that is its men's
program, but Summit should
all but thumb her nose at
them.
Why didn't they come
,. after her three years ago?
Is she a better coach now
with 880 wins than she was
three seasons ago when
there was also a men's
vacancy and she had 782
victories?
The reasons why
Summit should turn the
iob down are plentiful, but
the one that is clearly para-
mount is the need for great
women's coaches.
If Summit switched
offices and assumed the
men's coaching duties she
would be depriving the
nation's best female bas-
ketball players the chance
to play for a legend.
I have no doubt that
Summit could handle the
pressures that would ac-
company such a monumen-
tal leap, and I know she
could do better than 14-17.
But Summit is where she
belongs perpetuating a
dynasty, pioneering a sport
and touching the lives of
countless Lady Vols.

Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff
UF freshman Jared Kubin will reunite with former teammate Michael Campbell as the
Gators meet their toughest SEC opponent to date.


Gators gear up

BASEBALL, from page 24

teammate of his at a high school all-star tourna-
ment in Virginia.
"We played in the Virginia Commonwealth
Games, a state tournament where they break
the state up into different regions," Kubin said.
"He was pretty awesome in high school. I was
just a young freshman then. I think he was a
senior, so I don't even know if he'll remember
me.
This season Campbell leads the Gamecocks
with a team-best 24 runs and 15 RBI, while bat-
ting .375.
This is the first home series in UF's confer-
ence schedule, something that has the younger
players psyched.
"Coach McMahon always says our season
has different phases and this is one of our
phases, SEC play," Kubin said. "It's really ex-
citing right now, it's the phase right before the
tournament. We're just trying to get geared up.
Especially for me as a.young guy, I watched
South Carolina on TV. in Oinaha, they're really
good every year."
If UF's offense keeps rolling, Campbell will
surely remember his young teammate from
Virginia.


Donovan: 'This year was special. This team made history.'


GATORS, from page 24

Donovan said.
Assistant coach Anthony Grant
broke down UF's faulty defense
on film. Donovan added defen-
sive-minded coach Larry Shyatt.
And a freshman group thrived
as role players and impressed the
coaching staff.
Freshmen forwards Corey
Brewer and Al Horford blossomed
into defensive stoppers.
Brewer notched 46 steals.
Horford had 51 blocks, most since
former center Andrew DeClercq's
51 in the 1993-94 season.


That led to a' jump from 11th
place tp third place in the SEC in
pointsallowed per game.
Still, Donovan said that his
freshmen won't have the same
role-player luxury next season.
"I think things get a lot more
difficult now for Corey Brewer,
Taurean Green, Joakim Noah and
Al Horford," Donovan said. "This
year was .easy for them. They
had some guys around them in
[Adrian] Moss and David Lee and
[Anthony] Roberson and [Matt]
Walsh that maybe took some of the
pressure off them a little bit."
The pressure will surely mount
in the frontcourt as the departure
of Lee leaves the Gators short-


handed on the boards and without
a proven interior scoring option.
With Lee likely making a beeline
for the NBA, Roberson has until
May 10 to opt
to join him.
But with
or without
Roberson,
Donovan
admitted that
UF's lack of
Roberson athleticism on
the perimeter-
has become a recruiting priority.
Miami, Louisville and Villanova
all burned UF with their speedy
guards, causing Donovan to
profess his need for an explosive


perimeter player on Thursday.
DeLand standout Keith
Brumbaugh, who is deciding
between college and the pros,
has said he would join UF if he
chooses to attend college.
But regardless of where the
Gators head next season, Donovan
made his feelings on this season's
team quite clear.
"I think this team will go down
as one of the best to play here at
the University of Florida because
they did something that no other
team in the history of this school
has ever done," said Donovan.
"And for that, I'm proud to be a
part of it, and I'm proud to have
coached these kids."

Gymnasts look to SOFTBALL


nab first in NCAAs


* GATORS HAVE NOT WON THE
SEC SINCE 1989.

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

Playtime is over for the UF gym-
nastics team.
The 14-4 record, the No. 6 national
ranking, all of the victories over top
25 teams can be tossed right out the
window.
Saturday night at the Southeastern
Conference Championships in
Duluth, Ga., is when the Gators must
step up and perform to the way they
say that they're capable of.
Momentum could be on UF's side.
The Gators posted their highest score
of the season, a 197.2 in last week's
meet against Pittsburgh and Yale.
"It's going to definitely carry
over," co-captain Erinn Doole'y said.
"We know it feels great to be able to
get a 197 and do what we always
practice, so it's definitely going to
carry over, which is going to be
something really great to see."
UF Coach Rhonda Faehn knows
all about important meets. She was
the first alternate on the 1988 U.S.
Olympic team, the 1987 and 1988'
U.S. Vault Champion and the high-
est U.S. finisher at the 1987 World
Championships.
She uses a message from her old
mentor to treat this meet like any
other.
"If you look at a competition of
this magnitude like [it's different],
then you're going to struggle," Faehn
said. "That's something when I was
training, all of a sudden the World
Championships or the Olympics
come up, and the biggest advice I
got from Bela [Karolyi] was 'It's just
like any other meet, it's just like any
other competition.'
You have to keep your focus on
what you're doing at that meet, that
it's the exact same thing you've done
all year, instead of focusing on the
crowd or on the level of .competi-
tion."
Faehn knows that it is possible for


her athletes to tune oufdistractions,
because she ha. done it herself in the
past.
."When I was at the Ol mipi.: or
the World Ch.ampion_.hip._ seriously,
when we were -out there competing
on the floor, it did not teel like that
at all," she said. 'It felt like any
other meet. Ob1iouh-lv when: you
step outside of that it's something
completely different, so I know for
certain it is possible for them to focus
on it like that."

"We have prepared this team
for this competition," Faehn
said. "I feel that they are the
most prepared for this. They
are mentally and physically
ready. Now it's just a mat-
ter of each and every one of
them putting it together on
Saturday."
Rhonda Faehn
UF gymnastics coach


While Faehn wants her team to
look at this week just like any other,
it may be easier said than done. UF
hasn't won the SEC since 1989, and
Alabama and Georgia have had a
stranglehold on the title ever since.
"I think there's that extra excite-
ment, that extra nervousness," gym-
nast Chantelle Tousek said. "I mean,
we're so excited to be going to this
meet because we feel so confident
about it, it's like we have it in our
reach."
Every member of the Gators team
and coaching staff has repeatedly
stated that the regular season was
strictly preparation for the SEC and
National Championships.
Saturday night is when the Gators
let it all hang out.
"We have prepared this team for
this competition," Faehn said. "I feel
that they are the most prepared for
this.They are mentally and physi-
cally ready. Now it's just a matter of
each and every one of them putting
it together on Saturday."


Nick West, Alligator Staff
Softball coach Karen Johns can finally tutor her Gators on home territory again. UF returns
from a bevy of road games to face Mississippi this weekend.


Softball finally comes home


By WILLIS JACOBSON
Alligator Writer

The road rage is over..
After playing 23 of its first
30 games away from home,
including the last 12, the No.
*14 UF softball team (24-6, 3-
0 Southeastern Conference)
will bring its traveling road
show back to Gainesville this
weekend.
The Gators will host a three-
game series against Mississippi
(21-11, 3-3 SEC), beginning
with a doubleheader today at 4
p.m. The series concludes with
a noon game on Saturday.
"It was a great experience
for us, we had some great
bonding time," Coach Karen
Johns said of the team's recent
rash of road games. "Down
the line in the later part of
the season, the teams that get
separated and the teams that
win aren't always the most tal-
ented teams; they're the teams


that are together."
This weekend though, the
Gators are relieved to be back
on familiar ground.
"It's so nice not to have
to pack a suitcase," junior
Lindsey Cameron said.
"Playing in front of your home
crowd is a lot of fun ... and we
definitely like to, have home-
field advantage."
Trying to gameplan for the
erratic Rebels could prove im-
po_..-ible Mississippi defeated
then-No. 3 UCLA only to lose
to a sub-.500 Iowa State team
two days later.
"Ole Miss is a pretty un-
predictable team," Johns said.
"So we de-emphasized talking
about Ole Miss and have fo-
cused on us and what we have
to do to beat them." .
Johns is not looking at the
Rebels' unpredictability as a
weakness, however.
"They're going to be tough,"
Johns said. "They have -good


pitching, .they have two power
hitters, and they're a very
well-coached team. They've
always given us challenges;
even when they were down a
little bit they've always given
us good games."
If any of the games happen
to be decided in late innings,
tha Gators will likely tun to
Cameron, who leads the eam
in batting average, home runs,
and RBI, and has already re-
corded nine game-winning
hits.
"Being in the No. 3 spot,
you kind of live for those mo-
ments," Cameron said. "Any
player really wants to be in
that position because you want
to get the job done and you
want to win it."
The Gators have met the
Rebels 18 times in school histo-
ry, winning 14 of those games.
All games this weekend will be
played at the Florida Softball
Stadium.

Gators take on Alabama teams to continue SEC streak


By NATASHA WEINSTEIN
Alligator Writer
nweinstein@alligator.org

UF's road record has been
lackluster at best. This weekend-
the newly confident tennis team
hopes to shine.
With a 4-0 run in the
Southeastern Conference at
home, the No. 8 UF men's tennis
team takes its game to the road in
an attempt to reach 6-0.
The Gators play against No.
36 Auburn at the Luther Young


Tennis Complex today at 5
p.m. It will be UF's first road
match since the Intercollegiate
Tennis Association Indoor
Championship in February.
"What I'd like us to do is play
well and come out with the vic-
tory," Coach Andy Jackson said.
"We're in the race but to have a
chance at a championship, you've
got to win some on the road."
The Tigers, 9-4 overall and 0-
4 in the SEC, boast an ability to
upset top-ranked teams.
"They're a team capable


of winning top-10 matches at
home," he said.. "They're com-
fortable playing against top
teams. They'll
start the match
trying to win
it."
The Gators
will turn to a
more stable
lineup today
Jackson after shuffling
the doubles teams against South
Florida last Sunday.
Jackson turned to the tem-


porary change because Greg
-Ouellette, who had been playing
with Hamid Mirzadeh on the top
court, had fallen ill.
"That. was just a one-time
thing," he said. "I feel like we're
getting better at one and two
doubles.
"Three is okay and heeds some
improvement there, but we're
probably going to stick to what
we were doing in doubles before
the South Florida match."
The Gators travel to
Tuscaloosa, Ala. to meet No. 62


Alabama on Sunday afternoon.

ON THE WOMEN'S SIDE: Still glow-
ing from a 4-0 victory against No.7
Duke, the UF women's tennis %am
looks to continue the domination
on the court in SEC play.
I UF will host Auburn at 5 p.m.
today in its third of four home
matches. Following today'- match,.
UF plays No. 23 Alabama on
Sunday at 1 p.m.
Victories & in both maishes
would improve the Gators' SEC
record to 4-2

Donovan proud of UF's efforts
By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

It seemed this season would end so dif-
ferently
Just when the national media began for-
giving UF of its previous Big Dance disap-
pointments, the Gators teased once again.
After all that leading on, the Gators
smacked their sweethearts with a dose
of cold shooting. UF's Big Three were
left sulking on the bench like a group of
rhythm-less nmisfits. And as the Dance
came to an early end for a fifth consecutive
season, the critics collectively asked, "Well,
what did you expect?"
But while the Gators failed to make
the Sweet 16 yet again with a 76-65 loss to
Villanova, Coach Billy Donovan refuses to
call the season anything but special.
"It's just hard for me to sit there and
say, 'Ah, the year was OK,'" Donovan said.
"This year was special. This team made his-
tory. We won a championship this year, and
that will never be taken away from those
kids."
As Donovan summarized the past sea-
son and provided a shadowy forecast of
the impending off-season on Thursday, he
refused to sell his team's accomplishments
short.
Instead of fretting over a missed nation-
al championship, he relished UF's first-ever
Southeastern Conference title. Rather than
stew in the season-ending loss, Donovan
pointed to a school-record 15 wins against
SEC teams.
And in stark contrast to the end of
last season, Donovan proudly praised his
team's improvement.
"I was disappointed last year because I
Nick West/ Alligator Staff didn't feel like our basketball team at times
UF forward David Lee's departure leaves the Gators without a depend- competed at the level I would've liked,"
able frontcourt player next season. SEE GATORS, PAGE 22


Summit too good to coach men's hoops


While the Villinova band's rendition of "Rocky Top"
sent a collective chill down Gator Nation's spine at
the NCAA Tournament, the UF faithful could take
solace in one thing: for once, it wasn't the Tennessee band.
No, The Pride of the Southland is prepping for football
season and gearing up for the 500 times it will play the catchy
fight song throughout the year. It barely has to worry about
showing up for a postseason basketball event.
Tennessee basketball is down, way down. The team
comes off a 14-17 season and just fired its head coach... the
men's team that is.
On the other side of UT's basketball complex, the Lady
Vols' Pat Summit is being celebrated for her 880th career
Division I victory, surpassing the legendary Dean Smith's
879.
Let me approach this debate very carefully. Summit's ac-
coplishment is amazing, but it doesn't compare to Smith's.

Summit has meant every bit as much
- if not more to her sport as Smith
meant to his. However, each record
stands on its own merit and compar-
ing them is not fair to either one of
these great coaches.
That being said, there is a ground-
swell of support for Summit to replace
the recently fired Buzz Peterson as
the next men's basketball coach in


Knoxville.
I understand that this could be a barrier-breaking event
the likes of which Jack Johnson, Jackie Robinson and Janet
Reno would be proud of.
However, I think it would be the wrong move for

Gators try to


beat the best
By TIM CASEY

Forget all the hype about Miami.
The best team that will be visiting the UF base-
ball team this season is coming this weekend. -
South Carolina (18-3, 1-2 SEC) is ranked sixth in
the country and is the preseason favorite to win the
SEC East after winning the conference tournament
and playing in the College World Series last season.
To be the best, you have to beat the best. UF coach
Pat McMahon wouldn't have it any other way.
"They were ranked as high as the top two in the
country," McMahon said, "That adds, to me, the fun
of competing."
The Gators (17-6, 1-2) are ranked No. 11, and
could easily move into the top-
10 by winning two games this
weekend.
To accomplish that task, UF
will rely on strong pitching to
silence South Carolina's thun-
derous bats.
The Gamecocks lead the con-
ference with 31 home runs.
McMahon "They're a club offensively
that likes to swing the bats," McMahon said.
"They're a club offensively that has some guys with
speed, and they will use the short game, the run-
ning game. They swing it, and they swing it really
well."
UF junior right-hander Bryan Ball (5-0,1.54 ERA)
will start tonight against senior right-hander Aaron
Rawl (4-2, 2.86 ERA). Senior Tommy Boss (3-1, 4.34
ERA) faces South Carolina senior Zac McCamie (5-
S0, 2.06 ERA) on Saturday, and junior Alan Home
(1-2, 6.26 ERA) will look to finish the series for the
Gators against senior Jason Fletcher (2-0,1.69 ERA)
on Easter Sunday.
Boss started on Sundays earlier this season, but is
confident that Home can be successful in his place.
"If he can get command of his fastball, he throws
it so doggone hard, not many people can hit that,"
Boss said. "If he can get his fastball and curveball in
the strike zone and get ahead of the hitter, I think
he's one of the best on the mound. He's definitely a
work horse out there."
The Gamecocks defeated the Gators twice in
Columbia last season, winning both games in the
tenth inning. McMahon knows this year could be
just as close.
"There were three great ballgames [last season],"
he said. "Two were extra innings, all were one-run
games where one swing of the bat could make the
difference." '
