TALLAHASSEE


Delegation brings student issues to Capitol


By JAMES VANLANDINGHAM
Alligator Staff Writer
jvanl@alligator.org

TALLAHASSEE UP administrators
and Student Government leaders descended
on the Capitol on Wednesday as the Florida
Legislature hosted its annual UF Legislative
Day.
The UF team, led by President Bernie
Machen and several university trustees, was


welcomed at a session of the Florida Senate.
The star honoree to lawmakers, however,
was Tampa resident George Edmondson,
better known as Mr. Two-Bits. Senators recog-
nized Edmondson for his 56 years of urging
Gators to get up and holler.
During the day, UP student leaders includ-
ing Student.Body President Jamal Sowell and I
Accent Chairman David Buchalter met with Bush
Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, whose proposed
"Academic Freedom Bill of Rights" includes a neutral basis."


provision governing how
SG funds can be allocated.
Sowell said the hour-
long meeting was produc-
tive and that he explained
to Baxley how the bill could
restrict SG spending.
, The bill requires that
student activity fees "be
distributed on a viewpoint-


Sowell said that while SG already works
hard to do just that, students have worried
that writing the policy into state law could
cause universities to take funding powers
away from elected student leaders.
Student Body Vice President Jennifer Puckett
said Baxley didn't appear to understand how
student leaders fund campus groups.
Puckett said Baxley said he assumed the
process was anti-democratic from reports of

Handling of rapes in question


UF student alleges unfair

treatment by officials:


By MEGAN SEERY
Alligator Staff Writer
mseery@alligator.org

Some UF students question
how the university is handling
sexual assault cases, and a UF
student who says she was a
victim of rape agrees.
The alleged victim said she
was "extremely disappointed"
with how Student Judicial
Affairs handled
Public her case at a
Safety Tuesday hearing.
"It was taken
very lightly," she
told the Alligator. "Now he
(the alleged rapist) is just walk-
ing around like, 'Whatever.'"
Alcohol use and little evi-
dence largely made the hearing
a matter of "he said, she said,"
the alleged victim said.
Judicial Affairs officials rec-
ommended that the accused be
placed on conduct probation
and attend counseling, she
said. If Dean of Students Gene
Zdziarski approves the recom-
mendation, the accused will
not be allowed to participate in
student organizations or intra-
mural sports.
"This is too light of a pun-
ishment," the alleged victim
said, noting thaf the accused
already did not participate in
those activities. "This will not
make any difference in his
life."


Laura Kalt, an Alachua
County victim's advocate, said
some UF rape victims feel safer
seeking aid outside the halls of
the university.
"They can be afraid of
running into acquaintances on
campus," she said. "Victims are
less likely to see someone they
know in the (Alachua County)
health department."
County statistics suggest
that Kalt is correct.
Kalt's office, the Victim
Services and Rape Crisis
Center, counseled 18 UF stu-
dents in 2002, 19 in 2003 and
six for the first half of 2004.
University Police depart-
ment figures, however, show
that four students reported
sexual battery in 2002 and six
in 2003, according to its Web
site. The data for 2004 has not
been updated.
While Kalt couldn't com-
ment on how UPD responds


to sexual assaults, she said that
victims suffer emotional stress
and can easily be intimidated
by authority.
"Police are there to inves-
tigate allegations," Kalt said.
"Some legitimate questions
may add insult to injury be-
cause the victim feels like the
police are suggesting that they
have an ulterior motive."
Although many police
detectives are "wonderful,"
not all are as sensitive as they
should be, she said.
"I can't tell victims that the
cops will necessarily be sup-
portive," Kalt said. "Reporting
a crime is not always an em-
powering experience."
Members of the UFP Campus
National Organization for
Women recently accused uni-
versity police of not taking sex-
ual assault victims seriously.
"Generally, women are not
believed when we say we've
been raped," Campus NOW
President Kelly Mangan said.
"The university's idea of
watching your drink and look-

GREEK AFFAIRS

Fraternity faces charges for alleged hazing incident


By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
kcraig@alligator.org

Kappa Alpha Fraternity faces
hazing charges after allegedly in-
structing three pledges to steal signs
from a local housing complex.
William Page, Kirby Ingram
and Cory McFadden, all Kappa
Alpha pledges, were approached
by a University Police officer after-


pulling into the service drive of the
Kappa Alpha house, situated at 5A
Fraternity Row, on March 18, ac-
cording to police reports.
Page's gray pickup truck report-
edly was driving down Fraternity
Row, its flatbed containing several
large signs with posts, concrete and
dirt on the end.
Reports state the pledges told po-
lice they were instructed by Kappa
Alpha members to steal the signs


for for a party the
next day.
... ...': Several small
signs, also for the
.. party, were re-
S '- moved from the
house as well.
"This has
Bullins been the most
typical type of
hazing we have seen the type
of scavenger hunt activities," said


Chris Bullins, director of Greek Life.
He also said fraternity presi-
dents, as well as their new member
educators, are required to attend
workshops where they are warned
against using hazing practices.
"They learn which outcomes
should and should not take place,
and we make sure new member
education is in compliance with uni-
versity expectations," he said.
. Kappa Alpha officials accepted


responsibility for members' actions
at a Wednesday hearing. A sanction-
ing hearing soon will take place to
determine their punishment.
Page's truck and the signs re-
trieved were all taken to the east
compound at. the UPD station,
where they will be held until the
owners of the signs are notified.
Kappa Alpha President Dan
Boda did not return phone calls
seeking comment.


UF health program pushes students to get into shape


* THE PROGRAM IS BASED ON THE
TV SHOW "THE BIGGEST LOSER."

By SARAH CARBALLO
Alligator Contributing.Writer

The challenge is not to win but to lose.
The Greater Gator Challenge -is a
health program that started this semester.
Participating UF students learn to build an ex-
ercise-and-meal plan they cin use to develop
healthy lifestyles.
Though based on the NBC show "The
Biggest Loser," in which the contestant who
lost the most weight won $250,000, there is no
trophy or prize at stake in the local version.
"We were thinking about doing goals, but
with goals you have successes and failures,"
said Nick Clayton, coordinator for strength
and conditioning at UF. "It then becomes about
body image, and that's not what it's about."
Clayton said the idea for the Greater Gator
Challenge stemmed from "The Biggest Loser"
because the show was so bad and portrayed
weight loss so negatively that he wanted to do


something to counter it.
Of the 150 students who applied, six were
chosen. Each student was assigned a coach
who was a graduate assistant, program as-
sistant or coordinator in the Division of
Recreational Sports.
"One of the things we looked at was wheth-
er they had injuries because they wouldn't be
able to keep up with the physical demands,"
Clayton said. "We needed people that were
going to be better-served."
Students were placed on an eight-week be-
ginner program, consisting of circuit training
and cardiovascular exercise, that will end the
last week of school. UF nutritionist Melanie
Brede met with participants once a week to
talk about their progress.
Clayton said the students are not placed on a
strict diet but instead learn how to eat balanced
meals and determine when they are full.
"They are learning how to make healthy
choices because it is a long-term process," he
said. "We are trying to get them to enjoy their
workout-program, not bum them out."
According to the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration, the only way to lose weight


safely and keep it off requires long-term
changes in daily eating and exercise habits
The FDA recommends losing about a
.pound a week. One pound of fat is equal to
3,500 calories, so a reduction of 500 calories per
day will achieve this goal.


"We were thinking about doing
goals, but with goals you have
successes and failures. It then
becomes about body image, and
that's not what it's about."
Nick Clayton
UF strength and conditioning
fitness coordinator


UF journalism sophomore Sara Cunnard, a
participant in the program, calls the meal plan
"intuitive eating." Students rate their fullness
on a scale of 6ne to 10, five being nteuitr.l and
anything under it being hungry.
Cunnard said the coaches "run [them]
ragged," btit she appreciates the motivation.
"I can personally notice a, huge change in


the way I feel every day, the way I carry myself
and the way my clothes fit," she said. "I am
definitely pleased."
Economics junior and challenge participant
Justin Wortley, 21, agreed that the coaches are
encouraging and assure him of success.
"They encourage me that my goals can be
reached if I give it my all," Wortley said.
His goal is to develop a healthy lifestyle he
can maintain himself once the program is over.
He does not want anything too strict, he said.
"I don't think it's that hard to be moti-
vated," he said. "I.keep thinking of what'will
happen at the end. I just go for my goal. It
helps me a lot."
Wortley said he and his fellow participants
feel the program is going to benefit them in
the long run. He said he thinks it is a great
program-for people who lack motivation but
want to improve and change their lifestyles.
UF students can get advice on starting a
workout plan by contacting the Division of
Recreational Sports. Clayton said all students
are entitled to two free personal training
sessions per semester and can make appoint-
ments to get free fitness profiles done.

Main Street worker dies


Failing to see a fellow construction
worker, a Lake City man drove over him
with a dump truck early Wednesday;
At approximately 7:40 a.m., Justin
Garland, 25, was placing cones in a south-
bound lane on South Main Street near the
3500 block as Fred Lowery, 39, began to
back up a Mack truck in the other lane.
The truck, moving at "a very slow rate
of speed," knocked Garland to the ground
and then drove over him, Gainesville Police
spokesman Keith Kameg said.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Gainesville Police ruled the incident an
accident. GPD considers Garland's death
as the third traffic fatality in Gainesville this
year. It is the fifth this year in the region.

VIDEO GAME SPURS ABUSE CHARGE: A lo-
cal woman was arrested for child neglect,
and her 14-year-old relative was arrested
for aggravated child abuse Tuesday.
Ethel Mae Edwards, 47, went to work
Sunday afternoon, leaving her grandsons,
ages two and four, with a young male rela-
tive for about eight hours, reports state.
After playing a video game, the teenager
and the youngest grandson started "acting


out" scenes from the game Electronic
Arts' "Def Jam Fight for NY," Kameg said.
The teen repeatedly threw the victim-
onto the floor and struck him in the face
with a fist and a wooden stake borrowed
from a campaign sign, the report states.
"We're almost in shock at the police
department that the 2-year-old wasn't hurt
any more than he was," Kameg said.
The teen allegedly told Edwards over
the phone that the victim sustained a swol-
len eye after running into a bathtub faucet.
But when Edwards returned home, she
discovered the child also had a bloody and
bruised lip, scrapes across his face and fin-
gernail scratches on his chest, stomach and
legs, as well as a bruised spleen.
Although Edwards treated the child's
injuries with ice and witch hazel, she failed
to seek medical attention for him. It was
only after the mother returned two days
later that he was rushed to the hospital.
Edwards is being held in the Alachua
County Jail. The teenager is being held at
the county Juvenile Detention Center.

Marine conference starts


* OF SPECIAL INTEREST ARE
SPECIES NATIVE TO FLORIDA.

By SKYLER SMITH
Alligator Writer
ssmith@alligator.org

The health of Florida's marine mam-
mals will be the topic of a four-day con-
ference beginning today at the UF Hilton
Hotel and Conference Center.
"We wanted to have a forum ... so that
people from all over the country interested
in marine health can exchange ideas," said
UF veterinary medicine professor and con-
ference organizer Roger Reep.
The College of Veterinary Medicine,
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission and the Whitney Laboratory
for Marine Bioscience are sponsors.
Presentations at the conference will
address, among other topics, the present
and future health of manatees, bottlenose
.dolphins, pygmy sperm whales and north-
ern right whales all species indigenous
to Florida waters.
Speakers from such organizations as the
Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute
and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research
Institute will be among attendees.
The late registration fee is $125 for UF
students and $200 for the general public,
according to the conference's Web site.


Late registration takes place today from
5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the UF Hilton Hotel and
Conference Center, located west of campus
directly across Southwest 13th Street.
Lunch will be provided for all attend-
ees on both Friday and Saturday, and final
summaries of all the conference speeches
will be presented Sunday morning.
Reep said he encourages the public to
attend any of the scheduled
On lectures but said he thinks
CampUS Saturday's lecture on mana-
tee-related boat safety will
be of particular interest to locals.
"It addresses the issue of how do you
have boats and manatees together in

Florida without killing all the manatees,"
Reep said.
The Saturday session will include
speakers from both the boating and mana-
tee activist communities. Individual ad-
mission can be purchased for that lecture
only at a cost of $40.
This year marks the second time the
conference has been held.
At the first conference in 2002, Reep
said, about 150 people attended; he .added
that he expects about the same number of
attendees this year.
"The marine-mammal community is
not that large. These are 100 key people,"
he said of the conference's attendees.
All proceeds will go toward the cost of
the event.

Editorial


Backward bill

Student 'freedom' would

cost professors their own
I think everyone will agree that college students
shouldn't be persecuted for disagreeing with a profes-
sor.
Students shouldn't be afraid of expressing their own
views because they see others who do so receive penalties
to their grades.
"Academic freedom," as the title of Rep. Baxley's bill
puts it, should be protected at all costs.
True academic freedom, however, respects the rights of
professors to express their views just as much as it does
those of students.
Were this bill merely a mechanism through which
students could seek redress for the actions of intolerant
professors who unfairly reduced their grade out of spite,
it would be acceptable though ultimately superfluous,
considering already-existent university policies to coun-
teract such occurrences.
This bill would do far more.
Not only could students sue over unfairly lowered
grades, but they also could sue any time they felt singled
out for "public ridicule."
An extreme example of this is the restrictions that the
bill puts on the use of the Socratic method in the class-
room. Under the bill, students called upon by professors
to defend their beliefs in class could sue.
Frankly, any student who isn't willing to defend their
beliefs in an open discussion shouldn't be complaining
about being forced to swallow beliefs they don't like. If
you want someone to take your beliefs seriously, then
you'd better be willing to fight for them.
And if a professor doesn't take your beliefs seriously, so
what? You get through the class, give all "Poor" marks on
the teacher evaluation form and go on with your life.
Professors also should not be forced to teach views they
do not view as valid. If a biology teacher does not want to
discuss intelligent design in order to provide a counter to
evolution to use the example that keeps getting tossed
around then he or she should not have to.
It is not the job of professors to teach every existing
theory on every single topic to students. It is their job to
teach the ones they feel are necessary after their years and
years of study in the field.
Professor discussing a controversial subject such as hu-
man development certainly would be remiss if they didn't
mention one of the most popular theories creationism, in
this case but taking legal action against them would be
blowing the situation way out of proportion.
If students doesn't like the theories presented in class,
they can use the thinking and research skills they learn in
college to find alternatives.
Students need to grow up, and Baxley and the other
legislators need to give them an opportunity to do so.
You have a right to complain because your paper on
why creationism is better than evolution comes back with
a failing grade and the words "Bite me, Christian boy!" are
written across the top in red pen.
You don't have a right to sue because some mean old
professor hurt your feelings by making you look silly in
front of a bunch of people whom you wanted to think you
were cool.

UF keeps records out of the sunshine


federal law rightly protects the privacy of Social
Security numbers, grades and other information of
university students.
But UP officials have used the Family Educational Rights
and Privacy Act of 1974 as a broad shield against complying
with requests for public records.
In some cases, the university has blocked information that
they had given the Alligator just last year.
Following March's Student Government elections, for ex-
ample, the Alligator requested copies of the sign-in sheets at
polling locations. The request was denied due to federal pri-
.vacy concerns, even though the only information that would
be .on the sheets was who voted and where.
That same information for any resident voting in local,
state or federal elections in Florida would be open to the
public.
Yet, according to UF, SG does not have to comply with
those requests.
What is unacceptable is that the university has no qualms
about releasing students' names or privacy concerns when it
is to its benefit.
Each year, UF sends out hundreds of press releases and
other information to the media announcing breakthroughs
in research, award or scholarship recipients and other out-
standing student accomplishments.
Just this week, UF student Danny DePaz's name made it
into The Washington Post in an Associated Press story, but
not because he won an award or a Rhodes Scholarship.
A rabid bat bit him, and University Police released his
name.
If UF and its General Counsel's office are going to take
such a firm and broad view.of FERPA and its, privacy pro-
tections, then their standard should apply to all information
released to the media, just not that which may damage the


university and its student-run gov-
ernment.
Should UF not publicize Joseph
Wilson and Edwin Homan for win-
ning Goldwater Scholarships?
Should the university remove
Dwayne Student Body President-elect Joe
Robinson Goldberg's name from the voting
Editorial Notebook record of meetings of UF's Board
drdbinson@alligator.org of Trustees, which helps set tuition
rates?
Should the University Athletic
Association remove the names of Matt Walsh, David Lee and
other basketball players from their jerseys and press kits?
The answer is no. That is neither practical nor should it
be necessary. The media, and henceforth our community,
should know about student research, scholarship and ac-
complishments.
On the other hand, the press also has the obligation to
be a watchdog of the universityadministration and SG and
to give a full account of the university and its operations,
whether it be negative or positive.
The university's General Counsel's office will not change
its policy unless the press and other First Amendment groups
fight to keep Florida's public records in the sunshine.
If not, we at UF will face situations similar to those
faced at Manatee Community College in Bradenton, where
administrators redacted .the names of Student Allocations
Committee members from meeting records due to so-called
.FERPA restrictions.
SG controls approximately $11 million of student money
at UF. Students have a right to know who is spending their
money.

Letters to the Editor
Anti-elitist push would make UF mediocre
Editor Though well written, I find your
Tuesday article to be a bit strange. I don't fault
you for anything you said; in fact, I find your
article to be refreshingly objective. What I do
fault, however, is the we-must-include-ev-
eryone attitude, which, in my opinion, is just
another way of saying let's-be-mediocre-so-
we-can-make-mediocre-people-feel-good-too.
In my opinion, one of the worst problems
in America is that everyone thinks that they're
important. On a "micro" level, such as with
family and friends, this probably is true. But
on a "macro" level, such as with society, it's
not (necessarily). So, that means some people
start complaining that UF is too elitist or too
exclusive or too expensive, when in reality
there are at least twice as many colleges and
universities now as there were when UF was
founded. The number probably is several
multitudes more than double, but you get my
point.
I cannot stand those persons who would
rather cause success to .stagnate than fan the
embers of progression and recognize the sig-
nificance of higher research. Sure, there's the
pride of being the best in the field a pride
some dislike because of envy but there also'
are societal rewards from excellence that need
to be fostered for the betterment of our state's
communities.
In truth, if the less-advantaged but none-


theless equally-intelligent are not

Making professors fear lawsuits harms the learning process


r e first article regarding the "Academic Bill of Rights"
says students would be able to sue teachers who present
and force a view upon their students. The example given
was that of a professor teaching evolution and making kids
- even religious ones learn it. A student who expressed his
view of creationism and then felt slighted by the professor
when he continued to teach evolution could then sue the
professor. I don't believe any such suit would -stand up in a
court of law, but the fact that our elected officials are trying to
tell our tenured professors what they can and cannot teach our
students is out of place and a waste of our "money.
Rep. Dennis Baxley (R-Ocala) is writing this bill based on
10 or 20 students who complained their grades have been af-
fected by what they call "liberal" professors. The reason this is
a waste of our money is that there is already a system in place
to handle this type of thing: If you feel you've been slighted by
a professor or have a general problem with something that's
happened in class, you may file a grievance with the university.
Then, they take you to a room full of people in suits who make
a decision based on what happened. Conservatives should be


Chris-Singleton happy with that, because when's
Speaking Out the last time any of us saw a "left-
ist extremist" wearing a suit?
Rep. Baxley's speaker
on the matter, David Horowitz, told the Florida House of
Representatives, "This bill is not to start lawsuits." Perhaps
that's not the intention of the law, but giving old guys erections
was not the intended purpose of Viagra.
The purpose of college is not to learn a skill; that's what a
trade school is for. College is intended to turn us into adults -
adults who can think and act on their own accord. Professors
are granted tenure because they have the ability to put forth
viewpoints unimaginable to most people sometimes of-
fensive ones. Once you've been exposed to a new view, you're
supposed to think about and see how it applies to you and the
world. Tenure is supposed to take away a professor's fear of
action from outside groups and authorities. Our professors are
some of the brightest minds we have in this country, and we
have to allow them to let their minds work and tell us what
happens. If not, we're limiting our marketplace of ideas.


If you can't listen to a liberal professor speak and not get
offended, maybe you're not grown up enough to be in a higher
learning institution. I'm not saying those professors are correct,
but you should be able to realize when they are off base and
run to the authorities.
Horowitz goes on to classify students as "kids" and says,
basically, that we can't think or figure things out on our own.
The argument here seems to break down two ways: Baxley
and people who support this bill believe students are ignorant,
sponge-brained apes unable to dismiss what the guy in the
Hawaiian shirt and sandals just said. Others believe the uni-
versity should be a place where all viewpoints have a place and
can be heard because, if you're in college, you should be able to
comprehend arid dismiss ridiculousness. If you believe we're
all ignorant, sponge-brained apes, then you have a superiority
complex, plain and simple.
This bill is wrong, and Rep. Baxley is an "ass, bigot and a
slew of other names" if he's using our mental futures as a po-
litical maneuver.

Time is now to act on promises to end genocide in the world


Yesterday marked 11 years since the be-
ginning of the 100-day-long genocide in
the African nation of Rwanda. During
those 100 'days, ethnic conflict spawned by
a violent colonial history led to the' murder
of nearly one million people. While this day
demands remembrance, this year, sadly, it de-
mands more in the way of immediate action as
another African nation finds itself in the midst
of what can only be described as genocide.
The world said "never again" after the hor-
rors of Europe, Cambodia and, most recently,
Rwanda. Now, as genocide is once again oc-
curring this time in Sudan the interna-
tional community finds itself witness to the
kinds of crimes against humanity it vowed to
prevent so many times before.
During the past two-and-a-half years, a
militia-led and government-backed campaign
of ethnic cleansing has killed 400,000 civilians
in Sudan's Darfur region and has displaced


at least 2 million more. Sudan is home to the
largest internally-displaced persons popula-
tion in the world. According to the United
Nations, Arab militias collectively known as
the Janjaweed have been attacking villages
populated by black Sudanese. These attacks
include burning of homes and crops, rapes
and brandings, and the brutal slaughter of
men, women and children.
According to Human Rights Watch, the
Sudanese government is arming the militias
and taking part in their crimes by using its air
force to bomb. villages. The Bush administra-
tion and Congress both have declared that
these acts constitute genocide, and the United
States Holocaust Memorial Museum has de-
clared a genocide emergency for the first time.
While the resolutions and declarations of
governments and organizations should be
praised, they are not enough to stop the vio-
lence. All that stands between life and death


Ryan Femberg in Darfur is anf African

.Speaking Out funding, personnel
and authority. While
the Janjaweed and the
Sudanese government have indicated- they
would be less likely to commit atrocities if
they faced international scrutiny and threats
of prosecution, the AU force as it stands has
proven itself unable toprovide such pressure.
A move in the right direction would be a
significant increase in the size of the AU peace-
keeping force and an expansion of its author-
ity. The Darfur Accountability Act, which is.
moving through Congress, holds the potential
to achieve this end, as it would authorize the
United States to help fund improvements to
the AU force that so desperately are needed.
Citizens of the United States possess great
power in that they can contact their repre-


sentatives in Congress to support the Darfur
Accountability Act and other pieces of legisla-
tion like it. Additionally, online sources such
as http://www.savedarfur.org and http://
www.genocideinterventionfund.org provide
updated information about the issues and the
actions individuals can take to respond.
In 1994, as the horrors of Rwanda unfolded
before an apathetic world community, U.S.
National Security Adviser Anthony Lake was
asked what citizens could do. He replied, "You
need to make more noise." The lobbying ef-
forts of students in Washington D.C. Tuesday,
as well as the efforts of organizations such as
the Genocide Intervention Fund, are helping to
make the noise to stop the murders in Sudan.
The vow of "never again" has been made. It's
high time to start fulfilling that promise.

Recording. in town allowed

Award-winning steel drummer plays UF concert


By KEELEY MCCARTY
Avenue Writer

Ray Holman lived a few
hundred yards from where the
Invaders, a calypso steel band,


practiced in Trinidad.
At 14, he started playing with
them, and by 19 he was compos-
ing his own music.
Eventually he broke new
ground in the world of steel


drumming, winning awards and
fame along the way.
Holman joined. The Sunshine
Steelers, the UF Steel Drum
Ensemble, for their concert at
the University Auditorium on


3-

Andrea Morales. Alligator SLaff
Members of The Sunshine Steelers perform Tuesday night at the University Auditorium. The event fea-
tured guest soloist and composer Ray Holman.


Tuesday night.
His performance, which was
free to the public, included so-
los and ensemble pieces with
steel drum students of three skill
levels.
"It broke some of the precon-
ceptions of what a steel band
should sound like or look like,"
said Jessica Williams, a UF micro-
biology junior who attended the
concert.
Williams, who was born in
Jamaica, said the music made her
nostalgic.
"It brings me back home," she
said.
Kenneth Broadway, who- serv=
ers as the leader of the ensemble,
said he has been working to get
Holman to perform. here for a
long time.
"I met him eight years ago at a
workshop," said Broadway, also
an associate professor in percus-
sion studies. "I was taken with
his ability to not only perform,
but also teach."
A lot of the music played by_
the ensemble in class was written
by Holman.
A majority of the concert
pieces were Holman's as well,
he said.
Holman said he spent three
days with The Sunshine Steelers


in preparation for Tuesday's
concert.
"I saw them getting better and
better," Holman said.
Steel drum ensemble is a
one-credit class offered through
the university's department of
music.
Broadway said no prior steel
drum experience is required for
the course.
But students who are taking
the class should have a strong
musical background, includ-
ing sight-reading skills and a
knowledge of pitch and tempo,
he added.
- Holman is 'credited with the
introduction of jazz into pan-
ning.
He also pioneered theidea of
pannists composing and arrang-
ing their own music for compe-
tition, according to the concert
program.
He said he gets satisfaction
from knowing -that the musical
genre is spreading.
He has played concerts all
over the world, including Japan
and many college campuses in
the United States.
This was Holman's first time
performing in Florida.
"People appreciate [the mu-
sic] a lot here," he said.


Joe's gripes a good read


aul Davidson sends weird things
to companies and even news-
papers.
I found his book in the pile sent to
the paper last week, and I ended up
missing most of the meeting, because
I was wrapped up in skimming the
letters Davidson wrote to Fortune 500
companies in his book "Consumer Joe:
Harassing Corporate America, One
Letter at a Time."
But I couldn't write a book review
about letters, can I?
What stuck in my mind was
Carpol's dedication on the title page,
"To the Independent Alligator, I hope
you get some laughs from this book.
Everybody else has."
Why no, Ron, I didn't. But you
know what I am laughing about? I
can't shake how funny Davidson's-
letter was to Starbucks asking: "Why
is Starbucks so hell bent on conquest?
Why do they grow each year like an
infection that cannot be stopped?"
I'd like to tell you why I have this
book, but I can't. It's ages old pub-
lished in 2003. Authors and publishers
normally send us new books.
Davidson transposed his name
to David Paulson and wrote cus-
tomer concern, praise, complaint
and suggestion letters that fall just
this side of certifiably nuts. While
his letters are hysterical, the re-
plies are even more telling. How
does a company treat a crazy man
when they think no one is looking?
He asked the Coca-Cola Company if
they put the leftover New Coke the
American public refused to drink dur-

I simply can't wait


ing the 80s
in a landfill.
It's not a far
stretch to
imagine the
Coca-Cola
people as a
little stiff in
the upper lip
department
in their reply.
to shop at a


-Circle K next time I see one because
one of their employees actually sent
Davidson a flag when he proclaimed
himself co-founder of the "Circle K
Fan Club," this would be in com-
memoration of the line "something
strange is afoot at the Circle K," ut-
tered by Keanu Reeves in "Bill and
Ted's Excellent Adventure."
Some of the companies catch on
that the author neither is crazy nor
complaining.
When Davidson suggested that
Jamba Juice try adding a fresh fish
smoothie to their menu, their cus-
tomer service manager sent a nod to a
classic SNL episode in his reply saying
the company was purchasing Bass-O-
Matics for pureeing whole fish. That
was when Dan Aykroyd was skinny,
kids. Way back.
I'm not sure what you would do
with this book, but I'm thinking you
have to have one. I'm going to hold.
on to this copy really tight, click my
heels together and hope beyond
hope Davidson's next letter will be to
Einstein's in the Hub asking why they
never use enough cream cheese.


Four-square trend hits UF


By ALICIA PEREZ
Avenue Writer


. It's the new fad around campus. It is a
little more competitive than how you played
it in elementary school. Forget Thefacebook
and MySpace, this is a different way to meet
new people.
Who would have ever thought that 4-
square yielded such power?
You have seen them playing every
week, with a line of eager people who will
unknowingly befriend "Prime Real Estate"
and "Maverick," the co-founders of this new
trend.
Prime Real Estate and Maverick,4 who
prefer to keep their true identities hidden
from those who don't already know them,
were inspired by two friends who created
a 4-square club six years ago at Ball State
University in Indiana.
"I would love say it is an original idea,
but it isn't," Prime Real Estate laughs.
The idea of a club solely dedicated to the
game of 4-square inspired both gentlemen to
begin one of their own halfway during the
fall semester.
With a nice following, they have been
able to make it a -,.eekl', event on campus,
with several off-campus events as well,
Maverick says. .
They play every Friday on Turlington
Plaza at 9:30 a.m. until "the person with the
ball needs to go home," he says.,
"What I love best about this is that is
brings a large dynamic of people together
for a good time," Maverick says. "I have
met a lot of cool people that I am fortunate
enough to call my friends, and I just love
doing it.",
But don't think it stops with just a


friendly game of 4-square of Fridays, Prime
Real Estate adds. They are preparing for a 4-
square tournament on April 22.
"Everyone is invited to come," they both
say. "It is going to be during the reading
days so more people can participate. We
actually want some more girls to come and
give the guys some competition."
The tournament will be individual and
team competition. The warm-up will be
from 9:30 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. The registration
will be from 10:25 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. with the
main event starting at 10:30.
But one of the biggest questions sur-
rounding this group are the aliases, as Prime
Real Estate calls them, that people receive
after only playing a few games.
You do not get to chose your own names,
says Maverick, whose name was chosen by
Prime Real Estate awhile back without a spe-
cific reasoning. He says the name is given to
the person based on certain moves that he or
she may do during any given game.
"There are different aliases like Tear Drop
or Loose Cannon for example," Maverick
explains. "These names just stem from the
different techniques they use."
On the other hand, Prime Real Estate,
whose name originated outside of
Leonardo's, says that some people just come
in with aliases in mind but also mentioned
that the one thing to remember was, "a good
4-square alias is like a fine wine. Sometimes
it takes years to fully ferment, so no one
should make haste in coming up with a
good 4- square name." "
Whether it is a yearning for an earlier time
in your life when your biggest worry was if
-you were'going to become a school patrol, or
a chance to meet new people the game of
4-sqaure will bring all this and more.

PLAYLIST

Musicians, computer beats to interface at Faces


By KEELEY MCCARTY
Avenue Writer

The computer's name is Swtchrly. It's the
backbone of Dance, Jenny's electronic pop
beats.
Dance, Jenny is a semi-local band com-
posed of Sean Kravit, a UF video production
senior; his cousin Kai Kravit, a Miami high
school student; and Alex Fenf, a former SFCC
student.
"We can all play every instrument we
have," Sean says, but he usually mans the
electric guitar, Fenf plays drums and Kai sings.
Swtchrly blasts beats, keyboard and whatever


else is needed.
The trio and Swtchrly -'will play
Saturday night at Faces Lounge in the com-
pany of Waterford Landing, Men's Shoes and
local Vox in the electronically themed show,
presented by Electronic SubSouth and Glory
Days.
Electronic SubSouth, headed by Christopher
Miller, is a small collective of people dedicated
to establishing an electronic music scene in
Gainesville.
They bring together local electronic artists
for shows as often as possible.
The Saturday show will be Dance, Jenny's
third show in Gainesville, a preview to their


debut album, "La Musica Pop," scheduled to
rdleai.e under the indie label Poplife Records
-some time this summer. Prior to the LP release,
the band .Will release an EP featuring the single
"Paperweights" and a remix of "Sex is Free,"
done by Styrofoam, a Belgian electronic pop
artist.
Their music has a Postal Service feel, with
mellow vocals and chill beats.
Sean says "La Musica Pop" starts off poppy,
then transitions into a darker mix of songs de-
signed to make you think.
"We've been working on [the album] for a
long time a year I think," Fenf says.
With the members of the band split be-


tween Gainesville and South Florida, Dance,
Jenny has had to improvise, sending ideas
back and forth via computer. After Sean gradu-
ates from UF this year, the band plans to move
to Orlando to work on their music. Kai will
attend UCF.
Along with their music comes a certain
vocabulary, Sean said. They like to abbreviate
words such as appetizer to app, and if they like
something, it's a "sweet little" something.
Not only are, the guys of Dance, Jenny musi-
cally in tune, but they sound like people who
would throw a tight party.
The Faces show starts at 9:30 p.m. and costs
$5 for 21 and up and $6 otherwise.

Dear Plagued by the Past,.
Maybe you should have kept your legs
closed (kidding!)
In a town rampant with alcohol and scantily
clad hotties, everyone has skeletons (and pos-
sibly whips and chains) in their closets. But few
coeds actually fess up to past sexual indiscre-
tions, so kudos to you for being honest.
Unfortunately, some people uphold -.the
double standard that women should sit at home
knitting while men run wild in pursuit of moist
holes. But hey, knitting doesn't illicit orgasms
(believe me, I've tried). Ladies have needs, too.
Now that you no longer feel like a dirty slut
(you're just an honest slut), let's address the
boyfriend.
Your man might feel inadequate because
he's had less experience. He also might feel
pressure to measure up to all of your previous
partners. Tell him he's better (and bigger) than
them (it's OK to be a little dishonest in this de-
partment ... he doesn't need to know Stud No.
7 was by far the best you've ever had.) Stroking
a man's ego is just as important as stroking him
below the belt.
If he never gets past your past, you can
endure the cross examinations, or you can find
someone who's obsessed with you, not the
dudes you've done.


Dear Perturbed by Parental Prodding,
Maybe Mom thinks hearing about that orgy at
a frat house will bring you two closer. Maybe she
wants some tips. Maybe she's just a pervert.
My guess is she's just worried. With all of
the young mothers and STDs floating around,
some parents think an active sex life means their
kid is on the road to gonorrhea and illegitimate
babies.

You're not 15 any-

Assure her that

If mommy dearest still doesn't let up, offer to

you're practicing safe sex.

Band defies the Man


By NATHANIEL DEAS
Avenue Writer

Ah, the life of a rock star.
Tours through Europe, fans
all over the world, working your
own hours ... it seems pretty sweet
- even if you have to drive your
own van from show to show.
"We have two vans," Southern
Culture on the Skids drummer
Dave Hartman says.
"Today we're going from Austin
to Little Rock; it's about a 10-hour
drive."
Described as an Appalachian
surf band, Southern Culture on the
Skids is on a non-stop, month-long
tour throughout the South before
heading off to Europe in May.
"Anyone who owns their own
business will tell you one of the
perks is that you work your own
hours, but you tend to work 24
hours a day," Hartman says.
"But at least you're not answer-
ing to.the Man." '
With drives from Texas to
Arkansas to Tennessee to Florida,
Hartman admits the band mem-
bers have a lot of free time on their
hands.
"We read a lot and listen to
whatever CDs we scored at the
last place we were and just sleep,"
he says.
It's a different story on the stage,
however.
"We'll be throwing' out fried
chicken and getting girls on stage


to dance, camel walk and belly
dancing," Hartman says. "I don't
know, we just sort of have a good
time.
"And, you know, if you've been
working all day long, you don't
want to go hear a bunch of 'crying
in your beer' music. You want to
have a good time, and that's what
we try to do."
Southern Culture on the Skids,
who will be driving to the Market
Street Pub on Saturday, are no
strangers to Gainesville.
"We're really looking forward to
[the show]," Hartman says.
"We had a blast the last time we
were there, and we always have a
good time in Gainesville."
Based out of Chapel Hill, N.C.,
Southern Culture on the Skids has a
large range of musical influences.
"Generally we do a mix of all
sorts of Southern based types of
music," Hartman says.
"Anything from surf music,
which isn't necessarily Southern,
but country and roots and blues'
and early rock 'n' roll and R&B and
just, you know, all of these sounds
originated in the South."
Doors open at 9 p.m. Tickets are
$12 in advance or $15 at the door
and can be -purchased at Smoke,
Hyde and Zeke, Blockbuster Video
and No Future.
"It'll be a damn good time," he
says. "You'll hear really good mu-
sie, you'll have fun, you might even
get laid."

Since then, he has found

"It's just kind of a day-

U IFC MEMBERS HAVE FO-
CUSED ATTENTION ON LOCAL
MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL
STUDENTS.

By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
kcraig@alligator.org

UF fraternity members have
been using their spare time
to give back to local students
through a new community tutor-
ing program.
Representatives from
Interfraternity Council chapters
have been tutoring kids at P.K.
Yonge Middle School as
Greek part of the program.
Life They also have given
speeches to Buchholz
High School freshmen, encourag-
ing the teenagers to make good
choices.
IFC Service Director Chris
Ferrante said the volunteers are
working hard to put a lot of time
and energy into the program.
"Sometimes it's easier for a
college student to get through to
younger students because they
respect us and feel like they are
on a closer level to us than their
teachers or administrators," he
said.
Fraternity members volun-
teering at P.K. Yonge have tu-
tored students after school three
days a week in math, science and
English.
Travis Mydock, project leader
for the middle school program,
said it's great to see the impact
the volunteers have on the
younger students.
"The kids really enjoy it. They
always ask if we're coming back
next week," he said.
,The program at Buchholz
High School is focused more
toward teaching kids to make
better choices in high school and
beyond.
"We really emphasize educa-
tion and extracurriculars," high-
school project leader Jim Lang
said.
"We want to help them to be
successful in high school and to
prepare them for success in col-
lege and their future careers."
Both. Lang and Mydock said
plans are being made to expand
the programs to other local
schools.
"We're trying to develop a
relationship in the community
and we want this relationship to
last for years to come," Ferrante
said.

Gay couples stage unions to promote marriage rights


By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Contributing Writer

A pagan high priest and a rabbi de-
clared five couples mock husbands and
wives and husband and husband, and
wife and wife Wednesday on the Reitz
Union North Lawn.
As part of the event called
On "My Big Fat Gay Wedding,"
Campus three homosexual and two
heterosexual couples married
to show support for same-sex couples'
rights and to increase awareness on cam-
pus, said Piramno Rosetta, Pagan Student
Union president and coordinator of the
event.
"We should not be discriminated be-
cause of our sexual orientations," Rosetta
said. "We have the love between two peo-
ple, and that's the most important thing in
marriage."
Rabbi Jonathan Siger of Hillel at UF and
Rosetta, who also is a pagan high priest,
presided over the ceremonies.
The Rev. Nevin Wertenberger from the
Trinity Metropolitan Community Church
in Ocala was also scheduled to appear but
never showed up.
About 25 students witnessed the unions
of Rosetta and Cory Wise; Anna Khorosh
and Amanda Willingham; Jon McCahill
and Christian Sy; Kyle Orta and Pepijn
Van Kesteren; and Adelle Fontanet and
Russell Semmel.


NICK West/ Alligator Start
Piramno Rosetta and CoryWise are "married" by Rabbi Jonathan Siger on the Reitz
Union North Lawn on Wednesday as part of Pride Awareness Week.
Tamara Cohen, the director for Lesbian, said.
Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Affairs, "[Same-sex marriages] are about people
said there are many misconceptions about getting equal protection under the law,"
same-sex marriages. Cohen said. "There are 1,049 protections
The weddings are not about the cake for married people that gay people don't
and the suit but about legal rights, she have."


Cohen explained that gay couples do
not have the right to visit each other in
the hospital or file taxes together, and they
cannot sponsor an immigrant partner'for
U.S. citizenship.
-"[Same-sex marriages] are about
people getting equal protection
under the law. There are 1,049
protections for married people
that gay people don't have."
Tamara Cohen
director for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and
Transgender Affairs

Siger said homosexuals commit to their
partners as any heterosexuals do, and thus
their weddings should be celebrated even
if they cannot be sanctified.
"Even homosexuals have a home in the
Jewish community," Siger said.
After Rosetta married the first three
couples, Siger married Rosetta to Wise,
and Student Sen. Semmel to Fontanet,
head facilitator for Pride Student Union.
"I'm not gay myself," Semmel said.
"I'm participating in this because every-
one deserves to have the same rights. I
have many close gay friends, and I. hope
this demonstrates that they have the same
abilities as I do."
. My Big Fat Gay Wedding was part of
Pride Awareness Month.

UF delegation discusses student-centered bills with legislators


GATOR DAY, from page 1

Michael Moore's speech at UF last year.
But SG Lobby Director Robert Mack said
Baxley was receptive to students' concerns.
"We talked about that, and he said from
what he can tell we won't have to worry about
this bill this year," Mack said.
Gov. Jeb Bush and Senate President Tom Lee
have both questioned whether the law is neces-
sary, and the bill has yet to reach the Senate.
The main thing Baxley wanted to do was
provoke discussions on university campuses


to ensure that conservative voices aren't dis-
criminated against, Mack said.
The student delegation also met with Sen.
Lee Constantine, R-Altamonte Springs, who
proposed a bill that would charge students
out-of-state tuition rates if they take more than
115 percent of the hours needed to graduate.
The bill would also give students up to a
$1,000 tuition rebate if they graduated without
taking extra classes.
Several amendments filed this week have
made the bill more student-friendly, including
one that specified that classes taken for double
majors do not count against the total.


"I think the whole UF day was a
chance for us to get our message
out and priorities heard, and I
think we did that."
Robert Mack
SG lobby director

Hours earned through internship credits
and courses that a student drops due to medi-
cal or personal hardship also would not count
against the student.


Mack said the day was a success.
"I think the whole UF day was a chance for
us to get our message out and priorities heard,
and I think we did that," he said.
He. and Sowell also plan on venturing
to Tallahassee a few more times during the
remainder of the legislative session to ensure
that UF funding priorities are met, Mack said.
The delegation capped the day with a party
on the viewing deck of the 22nd floor of the
Capitol building, where members enjoyed
catered food, an open bar and sunset views of
the.city to the strains of a live jazz band.
Plus, they got out of class.

Lesbian poet speaks about Jamaican heritage, sex


By LINDSAY TAULBEE "
Alligator Writer
Itaulbee@alligator.org
Sex, masturbation and Bert and Ernie were
all fair game Wednesday night in the Reitz
Union Grand Ballroom, as poet Staceyann
Chin leaped off the stage, through the aisles
and onto chairs while performing her poetry.
Chin and more than a dozen local per-
formers entertained almost 250 students with
original works of poetry during "Outspoken,"
hosted by Pride Awareness Month and co-or-
ganized by The Apartment Poets.
"Staceyann Chin is just so dynamic that
there's no way you can't be involved in her.


piece," Apartment Poets founding member
Kristie Soares said.
"She interacts with her body in a way other
poets don't," she said. "We should all aspire to
be a little more like Staceyann Chin."
Her poems covered a broad range of top-
ics, including her experience as a lesbian, her
Jamaican background and politics.
She encouraged students to masturbate
- "It cures everything," she said and told
the audience that having sex without ever
having masturbated is "like telling people to
come visit you, and you don't know how to
get to your own home."
"Imagination is the bridge between the
things we know for sure and the things we


need to believe when our- worlds become
unbearable," she recited during her poem
"And These Are Only Some of the Things I
Believe."
Included as things she believes in were
Santa Claus, monsters under the bed, so chil-
dren have something to conquer, "and con-
trary to popular belief, I believe
On Bert and Ernie are straight."
' 'I"ti,- Her poem "Lesbian Chasing
Straight," told how she had been
advised to lure a straight woman.
"Only in private do we confess to each oth-
er that straight girls require too much effort,"
she recited, to the audience's cheers.
*In an interview after the performance, Chin


explained how she began to use poetry as a
means of expression.
She said she came to New York -rom
Jamaica because it was virtually "illegal" in
Jamaica to be lesbian, as nationals frown upon
that lifestyle.
"I found that being black (in the United
States) is kind of like being illegal," she said.
"So I started speaking out."
Pride Awareness Month, the UP English
department, the Center for Latin American
Studies, the Center for Women's Studies
and Gender Research, the Black Student
Association, Volunteers for International
Student Affairs and LGBT Affairs sponsored
the event.

Board debates redeveloping local historic district


By IVETTE MENDEZ
Alligator Writer
imendez@alligator.org
The extent of potential residen-
tial development of an area border-
ing UF's campus hinges on certain
building restrictions to be negoti-
ated- with Historical Preservation
Society officials.
The redevelopment advi-
sory board for the College Park/
University Heights historical dis-
trict, which spans the east side of
UF's cam pus and part of its north-
ern boundary, met Wednesday to


discuss the possible impact of new
urban development on the area.
, Though the area was designated
a historical district about two years
ago, the board is now discussing
the repercussions that classification
will have on future student apart-
ment structures, Chairman Bradley
Pollitt said.
The job of the board is to develop
the area as much as possible without
infringing on the historical district
requirements.
The board previously commis-
sioned Paul Miller from Miller

study of possible different building
styles based on various restrictions
caused by the area's zoning designa-
tion, Pollitt said.
Due to its historical designation,
future developments in the area
must follow specific restrictions.
Miller's study presented the


number of apartments that could be
built on one potential lot, depend-
ing on the Historical Preservation
Society's final decision as to what re-
strictions it is willing to reconsider.
"It definitely has an impact,"
Pollitt said.
Miller presented three differ-
ent scenarios, each containing
about four structure options for
a University Heights apartment
complex.
Without the historical district
restrictions, the study showed there
could be more than 30 apartments
on a specific lot, but with the restric-


tions, only about 20 could be built,
Pollitt said.
Restrictions include new build-
ings matching the height of existing
surrounding structures, certain roof
shapes and rear. and side yards that
extend to the street, recommended
at approximately 10 feet to match
the yards of surrounding proper-
ties.
After -the board reviews the
study's findings, it will go back to
the Historical Preservation Society
to negotiate a compromise as to
facilitate the area's growth, Pollitt
said.

Top 50 Moments in UF Sports History: No. 20 11


alligatorSports.org's Top 50 countdown
enters the Final 20.
Log on to alligatorSports.org to view a digital
image of the article as it appeared in print.

20. Alabama Getaway 11/29/1923 The
experts gave UF absolutely no chance, making
the Tide 10-to-1 favorites.
More than 7,000 showed up to watch
Alabama, the top team in the South, score
another big win. But UF, down 6-0 early, wouldn't
give up another point, escaping Birmingham with
a shocking 16-6 victory.
The Alligator read: "[The victory] will place the
Florida aggregation first among all football teams
in the south."

19. Swindle in the Swamp 11/29/2003
- Bobby Bowden called it the best UF-FSU game
of his tenure, and this is a man who was on the
right end of The Choke at Doak.
UF players and fans called it a nightmare.
Not only did the Gators watch Chris Rix
connect with Dominic Robinson foran improbable
fourth-and-14 first down, but moments later Rix
found P.K. Sam for a 52-yard touchdown, giving
FSU a 38-34 win.
Controversial referee calls all going FSU's


way marred the outcome.

18. A National Champion 6/22/1968
In the 62 years since UF opened in Gainesville,

making itto the Sweet 16, the Gators were about
to bow out in the first round to lowly Butler.
Down 68-67 in overtime and with the clock
about to expire, Mike Miller hit a driving jumper


to give UF the win that would eventually propel
them into the NCAA Finals.

13. The Florida Flop 11/27/1971 It left UF
fans thrilled, Miami fans outraged and John
Reaves a legend. -
UF quarterback Reaves needed 14 yards
for the NCAA career passing yards record,
but Miami, down 45-8, had the ball with 1:.


10 remaining. It seemed unlikely UF would
get the ball back, so Coach Doug Dickey
ordered the Gators defense to "flop" to the
ground and allow Miami to enter the end
zone untouched.
UF did get the ball, Reaves broke the record,
and Miami fans are still angry to this day.

12. The Fiasco Bowl- 1/2/1996 After
so many years of trying to win a national title,
UF finally was one win away from an
NCAA Championship. So what happened?
Nebraska demolished the Gators in the Fiesta
Bowl, 62-24.
For weeks the joke was "I think Nebraska just
scored again."

11. Wunderffel 12/14/1996 Quarterback
Danny Wuerffel wasn't the biggest football story
of 1996 the national championship topped all
plots. But Wuerffel did walk away the nation's top
prize, winning just the second Heisman Trophy in
school history.
Wuerffel passed for 3,625 yards and 39
touchdowns.

Gators hope to break FSU slump

Nick West/ Alligator Staff
Catcher Kristin Butler and her junior class will be look-
ing for their first-ever win against Florida State today
ing for their first-ever .win against Florida State today.


By WILLIS JACOBSON
Alligator Writer

When the No. 15 UF softball team
(29-10, 8-4 Southeastern Conference)
takes the field against Florida State
(24-16) today, there -won't be any of
the fighting or name-calling that has.
become traditional of the rivalry in
other sports.
At least not from the coaches.
UF coach Karen Johns .says that
her relationship with 'FSU. coach Dr.
JoAnne Graf, in her 26th season with
the Seminoles, is a positive one. The
two coaches will face off in a double-
header beginning at 4 p.m. today at
the Florida Softball Stadium.
"I'm not quite sure if [the rivalry]
has that Steve Spurrier Bobby
Bowden.thing going on,"'Johns said,
noting that she was recruited by Graf
as a player. "Dr. Graf was sort of a
mentor for me.... Even though I didn't
choose to go there, we've always had
a great working relationship."
When .it comes to the players,"
however, animosity won't be lacking.
Beating the Seminoles, something that
UF hasn't done since 2002, would be
the perfect remedy for a team that has
lost four of its last six games.
"I've always bled orange and blue,
so it's a huge rivalry for me," catcher


Kristin Butler said.
Butler, an Orlando native, is part
of a junior class that is winless against
the Seminoles. All-time,. UF is 5-11
against FSU, including 1-7 in its last
eight contests. This season, however,
will mark the first time UF enters the
game with a higher ranking and this
team, according to Butler, is just hit-
ting its stride.

"I've always bled orange and
blue, so it's a huge rivalry for
me.
Kristin Butler
UF softball catcher


"[Because of the rankings] they will
definitely be out to prove something,"
Butler said. "But we will too. This is
a point in the season where we think
we're peaking, so hopefully we'll get
over that hump and beat them. It's
definitely going to be a fight to the
end in every game."
Despite the friendship between the
coaches, Johns realizes that a pair of
wins against the Seminoles would do
wonders for her team's confidence.
Getting those wins, though, won't be
easy.
"Record-wise, it's probably not the
best Florida State team that's .been


around since I've been here," Johns
said. "But it's definitely not lacking
talent. They have great speed, and
they have very good pitching. Those
two combinations can create problems
for us, so we're going to have to be
prepared."
Both games will be broadcast on
SUN Sports.

MEN'S TRACK AND FIELD

UF amped about Austin


By BLAKE BONSACK
Alligator Writer
Everything may be bigger in Texas, but
for this weekend, the UF men's track and
field team will settle for everything being
drier.
The No. 2 Gators travel to Austin, Texas
to participate in the 2005 Clyde Littlefield
Texas Relays at Mike A. Meyers Stadium
April 7-9. The annual event is one of the
premier competitions of the outdoor season
and will host many of the country's elite
track programs.
Inclement weather has limited the Gators'
performance in their first two meets, the
Florida Relays and Yellow Jacket Invitational.
Coach Mike Holloway is eager for his team to
have an opportunity to display its abilities.
"We're looking forward to it," Holloway
said. "Obviously, we would have liked to
have had better weather the last couple of
weekends to prepare, but we'll go to Austin
and do what we do and not worry about
anybody else. Texas Relays is one of the top
meets in the country, so to do well there will
say a lot about where we're at right now."


Despite the team's lack of experience,
Holloway was satisfied with its success
achieving NCAA regional qualifying marks
at the previous meets. He's also pleased with
their overall progress up to this point.
"We're in pretty good shape right now,"
Holloway said. "I like what Josh Walker's
doing in the 110-me-
ter hurdles. Bernard
Middleton came up big for
us last weekend at Georgia
Tech in the 400-meter
dash. Alex Harris had the
best series of jumping of
his career last weekend in
Holloway Atlanta and has been do-
ing a good job. We'll get to
see Mike Morrison in the long jump and high
jump this week against some of the country's
best as well."
The meet will give the Gators a better
understanding of how they compare to other
top teams.
"Texas Relays has always been a place
to see how you stack up against everybody
else because the competition is so good,"
Holloway said.

Marshall may take a Holliday from the Swamp


By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

As if trying to familiarize his
coaching staff with the Gators
while installing a new offensive
system wasn't enough, Coach
Urban Meyer might have to re-
place an assistant before the season
begins.
After he denied being contacted
by Marshall to fill the program's
coaching vacancy on Monday, UF
Safeties coach John "Doc" Holliday
said he traveled to Huntington,
W.Va., Tuesday to meet with school
officials.
"It's no secret, I went up there,"
said Holliday, a 20-year assistant at
West Virginia. "Right now, I haven't
made any decisions. Other than that,
I'm just out-here trying to get Florida
better, and that's all I'm concerned
about right now."
Bob Pruett, the winningest coach
in Marshall history, retired on March
9, leaving the Thundering Herd
scrambling for a replacement.
Holliday, a native of Hurricane,
W. Va., about 25 minutes from
Huntington, wouldn't say whether
he was offered the position but re-
iterated that it is the goal of every
assistant to one day lead a team.
"Any assistant coach wants to
become a head coach," Holliday-
said. "But other than that I have no
comment."

DEFENSE GETS BLITZED: After two

Wide receiver Chad Jackson felt Kyle Jackson's wrath irn a jarring hit Wednesday, but the receiver still
recorded two deep catches for UF's offense.


competition-driven defense, UF's nity at Meyer's "competition day"
offense finally had a Wednesday in prior to Saturday's Orange and Blue
the sun almost. Game, the offense showed signs of
In the Gators' final opportu- improvement before losing to the
defense in the day's final exercise.


"It was a good day today," Meyer
said. "The defense won and did a
nice job, but the offense, I thought
had one of their better days."
The offensive squad's potential


bragging rights came down to a
third-down situational drill. Agd
after giving up some deep passes
earlier in the pseudo-scrimmage, the
defense shut down the short game
and left -their counterparts running
wind sprints.
UF's wide receivers made nu-
merous big catches Wednesday. The
deep gains may reveal a weakness
in the previously dominant defense.
But, as Meyer explained,, the
speed of UF's offense should pres-
ent problems for more than his own
defense.
"The offense in football nowa-
days, especially in our style of play,
is if you don't blitz, we're going to
wear you out," Meyer said. "So you
have to find a way to hit home and
blitz."

NOT SO BIG HIT: While the speedy ju-
niors may have gotten the best of the
secondary for most of the afternoon,
sophomore safety Kyle Jackson
made sure his Jackson counterpart
knew he was still there.
As quarterback Chris Leak sailed
a pass over Chad Jackson's head,
Kyle blind-sided the unwitting
receiver, still gazing up for the ball.
But apparently the hit wasn't up to
Meyer's level of tenacity. .
"That's really not that big of a
hit," Meyer said. "I guess it's been a
while since you've seen a good hM.P'
Meyer promised the hits would
come harder, beginning Saturday.
"That was kind of a little bump,"
Meyer said. "You'll see some good
hits this fall. That wasn't a great hit.
Chad Jackson is hurt over that? I'm
sure the SEC hits harder than that
now."


Head coach position at Marshall attracts Gators assistant coach


He has been coaching for more than
20 years as an assistant, so no one
can blame him for wanting to be a
head coach.
He is John "Doc" Holliday, UF safeties
coach. He is among a list of candidates
including Ohio State defensive coordina-
.tor Mark Snyder and former Baylor coach
Dave Roberts for the recently opened
Marshall University job.
Holliday has been a bit cryptic about
his intentions, though. He said he's con-
centrating on the Gators at this time, yet he
visited Marshall yesterday. It is clear that
given Holliday's well-recognized recruit-
ing ability and extensive connections in
south Florida (where I hear they have some

decent football players), Marshall wants to
make inroads to get the talent that this state
has to offer.
Holliday has coaching experience at a va-
riety of positions, though most of it has been
with wideouts. At West Virginia (his alma
mater as well as where he coached the bulk of
his career, starting as a graduate assistant), he
led the wide receivers for 20 years total in two
separate stints. He holds three years' experi-
ence coaching inside linebackers sandwiched
between those stints before finishing at WVU
as an associate head coach.
He held that same position at North
Carolina State for five years before coming
to UF. He's the safeties coach now.
In 2003, N.C. State set-ridiculous records

on offense, setting
a new standard for
Wolfpack football in
almost every statisti-
cal category. Holliday
played- a big role in
that.
And, like he said,
every assistant wants
to be a head coach


some day.
Holliday is ready to coach a Division-I
program. The preceding evidence clearly
supports that.
What remains unanswered is are the
Gators ready for that possibility?
If Holliday is chosen and he accepts, that

the tradition of singing 'We are the
Boys' and the fight song ... Right now
there seems to be more of a tradition

means a UF assistant leaves after holding
the position for only a few months. That
means guys like Tony Joiner and Kyle
Jackson, who have already endured a staff
change, will have to be coached by some-
one else. Again.
Holliday's departure would have a great
impact on a team and a staff that is trying
to gain its footing. This is not to say he
shouldn't go he's been an assistant coach
for nearly a quarter-century.
If Holliday is chosen and accepts, the
impact on how the safeties will play when'
they step on the field for next season and
whether cornerbacks coach and recruiting
coordinator Chuck Heater can pick up the
slack is what to watch. .

Runner Ponteen overshadowed


By CHUCK BAER
Alligator Writer

Tiandra Ponteen may be the best
sprinter on the women's track and
field team, but you wouldn't know
that reading the news.
Although the sophomore won first
place in the 400-meter dash at the
fCAA Indoor Championships and
went undefeated in the event during
the indoor season, Ponteen's near-
perfect season was overshadowed by
fellow sophomore Kerron Clement.
Clement attracted national atten-
tion and lots of it when he broke
Michael Johnson's indoor 400-meter
world record, set in 1995.
Ponteen, however, isn't bothered
by being UF's lesser-known sopho-
more sprinter.
"Kerron deserves what he's get-
ting," she said. "Because that was
awesome."
Just minutes after winning her
own race, Ponteen stood on .the
sidelines cheering for Clement as he
won his. As he finished, she had to
congratulate her friend.
"Right after he crossed the line, I
ran up next to him and he was like
'Tiandra, we did it!'" she said.
Clement and Ponteen share more
than the same event and team colors.
The two hail from the Caribbean:
Clement from Trinidad, while Ponteen
grew up on the island of St. Kitts. Both


came to the U.S. to compete in high
school, too: Clement to La Porte, Texas
and Ponteen to Glendale, Md.
"Clement is one of her favorite
people," women's coach Tom Jones
said. "They're very close friends. I
don't think his success has bothered
her at all."

"[Ponteen]'s earned her
national championship.
She's respected nationally,
and she's respected on the
team."
Tom Jones
UF women's track and field coach

Clement and Ponteen share more
than a background history. While
Clement has his world record,
Ponteen has her own to brag about.
She set UF's best-ever 400-meter dash
time as a freshman. Then she broke
her very own record this season.
And while Ponteen hasn't received
the publicity of her teammate, she is
still proud of her season.
"Well, sometimes here and there
my name is mentioned, but I'm pretty
sure that if I had broken the world re-
cord, they would have been focusing
on me more than focusing on Kerron,"
she said. "An accomplishment is an
accomplishment."-
After finishing second to Texas'
Sanya Richards in the 400 in last


year's national championships,
Ponteen dedicated herself to winning
this year's title.
"After Sanya left to run in the pro
circuit, I figured I had to step up and
not settle for second place or third,"
she said. "So I did what I needed to
do to compete at the highest level that
Ican."
Ponteen started running when
she was just seven years old, placing
fourth in the Caribbean-wide Carifta
Games at age 12.
She left St. Kitts to attend Eleanor
Roosevelt High School in Maryland.
She competed for St. Kitts in the 2004
Olympics and placed 13th in the
Olympic trials.
While in high school, she set the
Maryland state record in the 200, 300,
400 and 500-meter dashes and as part
of the 4x400 relay team.
But Ponteen came to UF for the
climate, academics, and especially
because the track program only had a
few dedicated 400 runners.
"I didn't want to go to a school
where there's just a whole bunch of
400-meter runners," she said. "I didn't
want attention taken away from me."
All Clement hype aside, it seems
like Ponteen still has plenty of that
elusive notoriety.
"She's earned her national champi-
onship," said Jones. "She's respected
nationally, and she's re pected on the
team."

MEN'S AND WOMEN'S SWIMMING

Lochte, Burckle qualify for World Championships


STAFF REPORT

Indianapolis may be cold. Just don't ex-
pect any cold water in one of its marquee
pools.
Fifteen Gators traveled to Indianapolis
for the 2005 U.S. World Championship
Trials, with two qualifying for this sum-
mer's World Championships.
Junior Olympian Ryan Lochte qualified
for four events (200-meter backstroke, 200


and 400 individual medley, 800 freestyle
relay), while freshman Caroline Burckle
qualified for the 800 freestyle relay as
well. Lochte logged 81 points, only trail-
ing fellow Olympian Michael Phelps' 100
individual points.
Lochte and Burckle won't be the
only two representing UF in the World
Championships.
Head coach Gregg Troy will join his
two swimmers as an assistant coach for


the U.S. men's team. The championships
take place in Montreal
July 24-31.
Sophomore Leah
Retrum swam her way
into a competition of
her own, qualifying for
this summer's World
Lochte University Games. The
University Games run
August 11-21 in Izmir, Turkey.


And then there was the performance
one of UF's less-heralded swimmers.
On Wednesday morning, freshman Kim
Larson finished 15th in the grueling 1,500
free with a time of 17 minutes, 14.27 sec-
onds.
But for many of the Gators, the season
is finished. Next season, the men will look
to improve upon their fifth-place NCAA
finish, the women on a fourth-place fin-
ish.
