SG ups Growl grant

The Growl has gotten deeper.
A Student Senate bill allocating
more than $300,000. for the Florida

rally not only survived its first vote
at Tuesday's meeting it grew by
An eleventh-hour amendment au-
thored by Sen. Kevin Bacon brought
Student Government's total contribu-
tion to this year's Growl to $340,000.
"My amendment is necessary to
ensure that every student can go to
Gator Growl for free," Bacon said.
"The $340,000 we have to allocate is
just to-make sure the students can get
in for free."
The addition will allow 24,000 stu-
dents to attend without having to pay
out-of-pocket, instead of 20,000.

Activists win $10K from MTV
By CRISTYLE WOOD
Human Rights Awareness on
Campus, a student organization cre-
ated in March,.won a $10,000 Darfur
Activism Award from mtvU, an
MTV channel geared toward college
The grant, which was provided
by the Reebok Human Rights
Foundation, was awarded to the
best start-up organization focusing
Georgetown University received
the top award, receiving $40,000 for
best-established organization focus-
ing on Darfur.
Nikolas Wolfe, HRAC presi-
dent, and Rochelle Meddoff, who
serves as HRAC treasurer, formed
the group after being given an as-
signment by their African Politics
teacher, Robert Uttaro.
The students were each given
a stamped envelope and told they
could write to their grandmother,
send Spring Break pictures or write
to their senator or congressman
about the inhumane 'events taking
place in Sudan, said Wolfe, a 19-
year-old political science and engi-
This assignment, inspired by an
article in the New York Times, led
Wolfe to "ignite a spark that was
already there," he said.
Wolfe said he gathered names of
people interested in helping Darfur
victims and reached about 50 people
interested in the issue.
HRAC, which has been an official
student club for eight weeks, turned
out 1,100 people the highest turn-
out ever for a movie showing in
the Reitz Union, Wolfe said.
The group premiered "Hotel
Rwanda," which depicts the strug-
gle of more than a thousand Tutsi
refugees against the Hutu, militia
in Rwanda. The group, which now
has about 150 members, has also
conducted a massive letter writing
campaign, sending more than 1,500
letters to politicians from congress-
men and senators to the president,
said Wolfe, who said he first gained
interest in Darfur after attending a
seminar on the western Sudan re-
gion in 2004.
Wolfe said he hopes to use
the award winnings to "expand
HRAC's horizons" by donating to
aid organizations, using the funds
to further HRAC's involvement and
membership, using the recognition
to promote activism and to become
a non-profit organization.
Until now, everything has been
paid for out-of-pocket, he said.
Wolfe gave much credit of the
win to the many members, sup-
porters, friends, and family that
voted for HRAC online after being
selected as one of the three finalists.

The committee is using research by the
Johnson National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and
Alcoholism in compiling a checklist of inter-
ventions. These are divided into four tiers ranging from most
effective, which includes one-on-one focus, to less effective
practices, like alcohol education.
"Every campus and community is different," said Johnson,
who added difficulties involve time and resource restraints.
"We are trying to make the UF experience a better one, not
take away from it," he said.

Commissioner dispels myths about homelessness
* IN MARCH, LONG SPENT

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
The majority of homeless are
women and children, despite the.
misconception that homelessness is
most prevalent among white males
with substance-abuse problems,
Alachua County Commissioner
Rodney Long said Wednesday.
Long was one of three guest
speakers addressing the Alachua
County Young Democrats about
Gainesville's homeless issue.
"People making decisions don't
understand the problem, because
they're making decisions based on
misinformation, fear and politics,"
The meeting, which was held at
the Voodoo Lounge in downtown
Gainesville, was organized by ACYD
President Jeanna Mastrodicasa, who

By CRYSTAL HENRY
With the start of hurricane sea-
son less than two weeks away and
forecasters predicting a repeat of last
year, a large percentage of Floridians
still have no plan of safety, said a
spokesman for the National Weather
This year could bring as many as
15 tropical storms, with about half
of those storms possibly developing
into hurricanes and up to five of those
hurricanes becoming major storm
systems, said Frank Lepore, a weather
And 30 percent of Florida's .resi-
dents are not prepared, said Lepore,
citing a recent Mason-Dixon poll that
reported just 70 percent of Floridians
had a plan in case of a hurricane.
Lepore, a 1974 UF graduate, said it
is not the hurricanes that concern him
but the unprepared people in Florida.
President Bush declared this week
National Hurricane Preparedness
Week, and Floridians need to get a
plan of action in place for hurricane
season, which begins June 1, said
Last year, the Department of
Housing and Residence Education
had to scramble when dorms suffered
damages from two hurricanes that
passed through Gainesville.'
Beaty Towers West was hit the
worst, with the flooding of its 14th
floor, said Sharon Blansett, assistant
director of student housing.
UF students Erin Hoeft and Becky
Ramsay were suitemates on the
Hoeft was worried the damp car-
pet would cultivate mold and agitate
Ramsay's asthma condition.
But the carpet in Ramsay's suite
was replaced, and her athsma was not
affected, said Hoeft.
Hoeft's carpet, -which had less
damage, was never replaced.
Merritt Bresnahan, a nutritional
science major, said her room on the
11th floor of Beaty West also flooded.
Her carpet was cleaned but didn't
dry well enough, she said. She and
her roommate had to wear shoes to
walk on their squishy carpet, and the
room started to smell musty.
"If it smells moldy, it's

They bought deodorizers to try to
overpower the moldy smell.
James Kimbrough, a mycologist
who has worked in-the Department of
Plant Pathology for 40 years, said that
if mold was suspected, the housing
department should have tested for it.
"If it smells moldy, it's moldy,"
said Kimbrough, an expert on fungi
Blansett said the housing depart-
ment only tests for mold at the stu-.
dents' requests or if the housing staff
She said the housing department
received no requests from students,
and the staff did not see .any need to
test for mold after the hurricanes last
fall, therefore no tests were done.
There were many reasons for Beaty
West getting hit hard in the storms, ac-
cording to Blansett.
The windows in the dorms are
rated for high-powered winds but not
hurricane-force winds, she said.
Stores stock in advance
for impending storms
By MELISSA GARCIA
Although hurricane season does riot officially
begin until June 1, local grocery stores are already
preparing for the worst.
Publix manufacturing facilities and Albertsons
stores in Gainesville ordered excess hurricane sup-
plies weeks in advance to ensure an adequate inven-
tory for this year's storm season.
Forecasters predict the hurricane season will be
as active and destructive as last season, according to
the National Weather Service Web site.
When Florida was pummeled by Hurricanes
Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne in 2004, the Publix
at 3100 SW 35th Blvd. and many other stores ran out
of essential items like bottled water and milk.
The stores' inventories were depleted by the
hurricane season frenzy and could not be restocked
when deliveries were hindered by violent weather.
Publix Super Markets, Inc. began working on
both internal and external communication plans
immediately after last year's hurricane season to
prevent this scenario from recurring, said Dwaine
Stevens, manager of media and community relations
for the Jacksonville division .
"We did learn a lot from last year," Stevens said.
Publix owns dairy manufacturing facilities in
Atlanta, Lakeland and Deerfield Beach, that are
stocking a surplus of water and milk to ship to stores
with depleted inventories, Stevens said.
If in-state facilities are depleted, the corporation
would turn to its out-of-state facilities. If out-of-state
facilities could not help, then Publix 'would autho-
rize local vendors to help supply needed products,
Jesse Sutton, assistant grocery manager of the
35th Boulevard Publix, said manufacturing facilities
looked at last year's sales to determine how much
supplies needed to be increased for this season.
His store normally receives six shipments a week,
but Sutton said he expects additional delivery trucks
over the next few weeks with excess shipments of
However, supply shortages were not the only
reason shelves were empty last hurricane season.
Most shipment delays were a result of the ex-
treme weather, Sutton said.
The Departmenrt of Transportation did not allow
delivery trucks on the roads when winds exceeded
45 mph, he said.
-Since last season, Publixhas worked to maintain
and improve relations and communications with the
local power agencies that service its stores, Stevens
said. Lengthy power outages during a storm can
spoil large amounts of food.
"We have learned not to stock stores full of per-
ishable foods and are trying to tell people to:have
more stable items in their homes,"
Around Stevens said.
Gainesville Power: outages were not
a problem for Albertsons last
year because the store is powered by its own gen-
erator, said Melissa Lawrence, drug manager of the
Albertsons at 3930 SW Archer Road.
Lawrence, from Key West, said she has never ex-
perienced a hurricane season in Gainesville.
"I heard how bad last year was," she said. "I'm
already starting to order supplies now to make sure
I'm prepared for what may or may not come." -
Lawrence stocked extra case lots of items as they
are sold by manufacturers. For example, her extra
order for lantern fuel included 96 more cases than
before., sh -aid
In addition to lantern fuel, her list of hurricane
supplies in high demand includes water, charcoal
and candies, she said.
The early preparation and surplus could be
needed since the Florida Legislature unanimously
voted for a sales-tax holiday on hurricane supplies
from June 1 through June 12.
Items such as batteries, gas tanks, coolers, por-
table radios, tarps and generators will be tax-free to
promote hurricane preparedness for consumers.
Hurricane Preparedness Week began May 15,
and families are encouraged to have a family plan,
create a disaster supply kit and secure their homes
for flooding and violent winds, according to the
National Weather Service Web site.

other information, on hurricane preparation, visit

Center Web site at www.nhc.noaa.gov.

New contract may mean decrease in revenue from ardent Coke fans
PEPSI, from page 1
"This partnership will fund sev-
eral important programs through-
out the campus," Foley said.
Pepsi's deal with UF goes be-
yond just the sale of its products
on campus, however.
"We wanted a broad partner-
ship, one that will enrich student
and faculty life, enhance athletics,
invigorate the alumni of UF and
involve the communities we joint-
ly serve," Jim Keown, senior vice
president and general manager of
PBG's Southeast Business Unit,
said in a press release.
While Pepsi prepares to flood
the UF market, Coca-Cola is focus-
ing on a trouble-free departure.
"Our transition plan will be
smooth for the university," said
Michelle Holcomb, spokeswoman
for the Florida Coca-Cola Bottling
Co. "But we have yet to determine
any specific details."
Those details will be ironed out
with UF somewhere toward the
end of the contract, she said.
Despite UF severing the four-
decade-long relationship, Coca-
Cola remains dedicated to serving
its loyal Gator customers.
"We want to provide our valued
customers with the highest quality
of service no matter where they
are," Holcomb said. "We are very
committed to the development in
education in Gainesville."
While the change may inconve-
nience those students and faculty
partial to Coca-Cola, the university
also may face difficult changes.
Richard J. Lutz, a UF marketing
professor, said in the short run,
UF may see a slump in revenue
because loyal Coca-Cola drinkers-
would rather buy a Coke from
across the street.
However, Lutz explained that,
in the long run, Pepsi will gain
market share as soon as conve-
nience outweighs loyalty. -,
While students prepare their
tastebuds for an assortment of
Pepsi beverages, one Coca-Cola
employee admits the change will
take some getting used to.
"There is a -lot of Coke equip-
merit at UF," said Malcome Worley,
a Coca-Cola service technician. "To
see everything turn to Pepsi will be
Proposal drops SG as official sponsor
GROWL, from page 1
The amendment also drops SG as official spon-
sor of the event, as the bill suggested; however, SG
may have a 30- to 60-second advertisement during
the production. Advertisements for the event will
read, "Student tickets funded by SG."
The bill will go on to a second reading next
In 2004, FBK lost $181,000 on the rally due to
poor attendance after paying $135,000 to comedians
Bill Engvall' and Dane Cook. FBK covered the debt.
However, that debt has ramifications for the
2005 show. Growl's. starting budget of $30,000
is lower than previous years of about $100,000,
Student Senate President Diane Kassim said.
This year's Homecoming and Gator Growl bud-
get is $584,000, compared with last year's figure of
The cuts prompted Gator Growl staff to ask SG
Sfor $150,000 to add to the talent and technical bud-
gets for the show.
Despite the sizeable contribution, which makes
up about 58 percent of this year's total budget, SG
will have no creative control over Growl.
At first, Bacon said he had doubts about the bill.
"It seemed like a lot of money to me," he said.
"In the beginning, I wasn't sure if this was going to
Then he added, "I really think I figured it out."
Bacon's addition to the bill makes the sliding
scale a little more level for all students. The bill's
old version stopped incrementing money to Gator
Growl organizers after the 17,778th ticket was
distributed. Under the new plan, the incentive
for Gator Growl to sell tickets continues until the
24,001st ticket is "purchased," as the remaining
$200,000 will be given incrementally to FBK as the
student tickets are picked up.
Only four out of the 40 members of the Gator
Growl team are members of FBK.
Despite swallowing the loss of last year's event,
Associate Director of Student Activities Chris
Cupoli confirmed that FBK couldn't make a profit
on the 2005 show.
"If there's money left over, that money stays in
the (Reitz) Union's Gator Growl account," he said.
"It doesn't go to FBK."
Cupoli added that students need to speak up if
they do not agree with the measure.
FBK Vice President Chris Carmody said running
Gator Growl is a tough gig.

End of an epic
For our sake, we hope
the Force stays with us
M any absolutes have been said about the "Star Wars"
films in the past almost three decades since "A New
Hope" debuted epic, iconic, timeless.
But some say that as of today, the Force stops here.
While we're sure the commuters on Los Angeles'.
Hollywood Boulevard will be happier no longer having to
dodge Jedi and Stormtroopers, as they've done for the past
month, today's premiere of "Revenge of the Sith" will be a
bittersweet experience for fans worldwide.
As creator and director George Lucas has declined to
cast any scrap of. hope to fans about releasing the epic's
three final chapters, this third prequel and last installment,
though largely predictable to anyone who's seen the first
three films, is arguably no less eagerly anticipated than its
counterpart, "Return of the Jedi," was in 1983.
And like "Jedi," the ink granted to "Sith" may as well
be called accolades rather than reviews. Though the two
previous prequels have had their shortcomings do we
even have to say his name? reviews of "Sith" have been
But it's not a case of all that's old being new again
- "Star Wars" never dropped out of pop cultural-icon
Walk into any mall and you can find everything from
T-shirts with anything from hunky new Obi-Wan Kenobi
Ewan McGregor to the promotional poster for "Hope"
printed on them to authentically replicated lightsabers to
costumes, Halloween season or not.
Last month, a "Star Wars" convention in Indianapolis
drew more than 30,000 fans from around the globe.
Gainesville City Commissioner Rick Bryant has men-
tioned how the "Star Wars" films played a part in his
bonding with his three kids.
And just Tuesday night, a few of us paid tribute by
singing Weird Al Yankovic's "The Saga Begins" at the Salty
Beyond their all-star casts, the two other prequels,
"Phantom Menace" and "Attack of the Clones" were ac-
cused of at times being little more than show ponies of
Lucas' Industrial Light & Magic.
-But so far as we're concerned, the movies could've been
made using cardboard cutouts and still would have had
Though ILM is credited with changing the way mov-.
ies are made motion-control photography, blue-screen
special effects, etc. starting with "Hope," Lucas' films al-
ways-were hailed as iconic not for their newfangled smoke
and mirrors, but for their characters and epic breadth.
Who among us didn't gasp when Quintessential Bad
Guy Darth Vader.walked into the first frame of "Hope"?
Who among us isn't haunted by the vision that greets
Luke Skywalker when he returned to find Stormtroopers
had made it to his aunt's and uncle's farm before he did?
Who didn't bite their nails as the Rebel fleet faced the
Empire's Death Star, cheer when Yoda finally got to wield
a lightsaber or cry when it seemed Han Solo and Princess
Leia would never see each other again as he was frozen
into that block of carbonite?
As they had for more than a decade without a new chap-
ter, so the films will endure after "Sith."
They live on in Harvard University's "An Anthropologist
Looks at Science Fiction" class. They live on as countless
spin-off novels and comic books shelved all around the
world. They live on in the works of other filmmakers
amateur and Mel Brooks alike.
So while today will mark our final new voyage to that
galaxy far, far away, with us, strong will the Force remain.

Whether it's 7:00 at night or 5:00 in the morning, no one
bats an eye.
Heck, even souvenir shops stock wine and liquor next to

For all of its booze-friendly culture, however, Berlin could
teach Gainesville a thing or two about keeping its citizens

Having graduated from there in 2000,
I must say that it is an unfortunate truth
that I could nearly count on two hands the
number of minorities present in our grad-
uating IB class of more than 100 students.
Which leads me to what should really
be the focus of the discussion here: How
do we attract more minorities to take the
stringent AP/IB college-prep classes?
As everyone is aware, high school is an
important springboard to a good college
education: It is my opinion that legislators
and administrators focused on improving
the minority enrollment at colleges like UF
should really be looking one level down:
at the often appalling state of America's
high schools. Then, perhaps, we could
experience the dramatic increases in colle-
giate minority enrollment that our nation
so desperately needs.

Cow shot over airplane
By IVETTE MENDEZ
An Archer man was
arrested for aggravated
abuse and killing a cow
Wednesday, claiming the
animal posed a danger to
Frank Ogborn, of 3906
SW 154th St., shot a cow
Trolano that wandered onto his
property, fearing the animal
would damage his plane, reports state.
The Kitty Hawk Aviation owner allegedly
admitted to shooting the cow owned by Ricky
Buchholz, of 12614 SW Archer Road, three
times with his .45-caliber handgun.
The cow was on the facility's runway,
though it did riot seem to be causing dam-
age to the property, Alachua County Sheriff's
Office spokesman Jim Troiano said.
Buchholz said he does not know how the
cow left the property.
"I wasn't there when the cow got out,"
Buchholz said. "The cow got out this weekend."
Before resorting to his handgun, Ogbom
tried to dismiss the cow from his property two
other times, according to reports.
Ogbom reportedly "shooed" the cow to no
avail before grabbing his gun.
The airplane was about three to four times
the cow's size, Buchholz said.
"What other reasoning can you have for
shooting the damn thing," he said.
Ogbom told officers that another deputy
had previously told him he had the right to
shoot the cow in order to protect his property,
according to reports.
The cow has gotten out before and has not
caused any damage, Buchholz said.
"All you have to do is walk towards it, and
it'll run away from you," he said, adding that
Ogbom had seen him herd his cattle by just
walking behind them.
Ogbom was arrested and charged with kill-
ing and aggravated abuse of cattle.
The cow, who survived the" shooting, will be
put to sleep at owner's discretion, reports state.
The airplane sustained no damages.

Florida, said NKwanda Jah, direc-

"[The festival] started as a commu-
nity activity to bring awareness to the
culture of the African-American com-
munity and to reflect the economic
history of the area," Jah said.
"The yearly event promotes the re-
, juvenation of the Fifth Avenue neigh-
borhood, he said.
This year's theme, "We Must
Survive in Order to Thrive," was
inspired by the historic struggle of
minorities in the area, he said.

writes songs for popular artists like
Toni Braxton and Az Yet, is scheduled
to perform Sunday.

N Christine Steffens, the Avenues' Fashion a Go-
go, examines the hated and celebrated fashion
trend of butt cleavage. Restaurant reviewer Jillian
Caballero discovers a local dive with a South-
western vegetarian spin.
: Next week, the Avenue will reveiw the
new Dave Matthews CD, "Stand Up" with
a CD give-away. We're bringing on new
beats and new writers featuring the cheap
beat- how to do Gainesville on a dime.
.' The first person to e-mail theAvenue@alligator.org and tell us
which writer our new sex columnist Mr. Lube is referencing in the
first line of his article will win a noogie kit from our pile of promo
stuff; this week's featured book "Automic Wedgies, Wet Willies
and Other Acts of Roguery" and an Adult Swim wool beanie.

FASHION A GO-GO s
Fashionista says of cleavage, 'No butts about it!'
Butt cleavage: hated or celebrated?
Both guys and girls.seem to straddle the line on
this issue. A divide by any other name would call this
trend lumber crack.
The euphemism emerged in 2002 when fashionistas don-
ning low-slung pants dared to bare a little more of the foul-
line. With this picnic of skin, some guys find a feast for the
eyes while others find a less-enticing snack.
Not all guys find it so. My friend Ryan said it only makes
him want to give those girls wedgies.
Brandishing a G-string in addition to the backeye-slit has
lowered the bar for tackiness yet another notch.
Ladies, do you actually think this looks good?
At dinner the other night, I had the misfortune of sitting
face to bum with a girl on a barstool whose cheeks were re-
vealed for all- to see. They were staring at me.
I pondered the many ways this was unsanitary.
If fashion condones it, it must be OK,
Hmmm, I wonder if history will look
as favorably on butt cleavage as it does
on acid-washed -jeans and leisure suits. t
Your "Fashion a Go-Go" calls this fashion
However, there is no doubt the ass is making a new state-
ment it's chic, it's mod, it's vogue.
The flat-booty-less wave of the '90s is a thing of the past.
Thank goodness women no longer have to feel self-con-
scious about an ample derriere.
Let's celebrate the fanny.
But please, exercise caution. Some girls just don't know
when to say when.
Christine Remember, crack kills.
Steffens May I suggest a bit of self-censorship
fashion a Go-Go when it comes to superfluous skin folding
firstname.lastname@example.org over the waistband?
I can guarantee you will thank me
Like all things, I have a feeling that this fad too shall pass,
much like the big, heavy metal hair of the '80s adorning my
middle school yearbook pictures. Let's just hope you don't
have to suffer the photographic evidence of this one.
'Atomic Wedgies' authors provoke lewd behavior
Atomic Wedgies, Wet Willies and
9s Other Acts of Roguery
T l, Greg Tananbaum
and Dan Martin
I was a slightly timid, sheltered, little
girl with very good manners. I did not
know what a Dutch oven was. I wasn't
aware that torture devices such as the
hertz donut existed.
Bathroom humor didn't make me laugh
then and doesn't make me laugh now.
But I'd be lying if I said Greg Tananbaum
and Dan Martin's book, "Atomic Wedgies,
Wet Willies and Other Acts of Roguery,"
did not impress me.
What I find delightful about this book
is the balance of practicality and absurdity
within each entry.
It's similar to "The Worst-Case
Scenario" series, only with wedgies .
Tananbaum and Martin
list 52 "acts of roguery" in
alphabetical order. They
provide definitions for
each act, like the flour
shower. While the intend-
ed victim is taking a shower, the rogue
holds a sack of flour over the shower and
. covers the victim in a sticky white paste.
They even have a pronunciation key so
you can pronounce purple nu rple without
Entries also offer diagrams for visual
learners, and rankings for each entry that
measure the degree of pain, annoyance,
embarrassment and difficulty.
For example, when performed correctly
the flour shower causes
Jayme a low degree of pain (2
Gough out of 10), a high degree,
Cff the Press of annoyance (a perfect
....10), some embarrass-
ment (4) and is rather
difficult to carry out (9 on the difficulty
Based on your skill and level of sadism,
you can determine which act of roguery is
right for you.
The authors include tips for execution.
For instance, did you know when execut-
ing a noogie on a tall person, you should
wait until the person is seated or hunched
over like when the victim is tying his
Not to leave victims of roguery defense-
less, Tananbaum and Martin list possible
countermeasures for each attack.
They suggest victims take a proactive
stance. Wearing "a sturdy wool cap pro-
vides a simple and fashionable defense
against the Noogie."
This is a great book for the amateur
prankster, the defenseless victim or that
special someone who left his heart on the
elementary school playground along with
some kid's tightie-whitie waistband.

Hipp offers 'Intimate' display
F following a current trend of such
movies as "Magnolia" and "Crash,"
"Intimate Stories" accomplishes audi-
ence intrigue by intertwining the lives of
three main characters.
"Everyone believes in
something, though we all
go about it in different
ways," are the words of a
song in the picture, which th
wrap up Carlos Sorin's ar-
tistic and delicious slice-
The film is about a journey. Maria, a shy
wife and mother, Don Justo, a quirky old
man, and Roberto, a rather lovable, if eccen-
tric salesman, are all traveling to San Julian
from Fitz Roy,. a small town in Southern
Patagonia. They are each looking for some-
thing else, from a concrete prize, to a dog, to
the ultimate love.
The characters are content, as is the au-
dience, to continue without any dramatic
occurrence. This refreshing realism helps to
make the film a delightful vignette.
Without any direct conflict, the charac-
ters are all searching for something, things
don't necessarily work out according to
plan and, without batting a. lash, they learn
to compromise and be content.
Their separate voyages, desires and les-.
sons softly mingle along the road and create
a beautiful narrative. The characters' differ-
ences also blend rather stoically along the
way. Maria, played by Javiera Bravo, -does
nothing more than smile when she wins a
spot on a big game show. Antonio Benedictis,
as the character Don Justo, refuses to reveal
his intense loneliness until just before the
end even then maintaining his unwav-
ering expression. Roberto, performed by
Javier Lombardo, is calmly
Erin nervous about impressing
Chalfant a woman he likes.
Curtain Call The characters slowly
Cavenueralligator.org reveal their intimate stories
as tales- that are simulta-
neously, warm and heart-
breaking. The scenery of the countryside
also lends to the quietude of the characters
and the resulting mood of the movie.
Sorin wants to remind his audience that
we can enjoy- even the most uneventful
parts of life.
Simplicity is praised in this single-mird-
ed glimpse of life. Facial close-ups, ears that
wiggle and trick candles are the details that
make this movie tick.
The secondary characters encountered
along the way also add to the, warm-hearted
theme. These pure souls are striking in their
willingness to help the main characters suc-
The good-natured biologist, the numer-
ous bakers and even the highway patrol all
leave the audience with an optimistic sense
of human oneness and goodwill.
"Intimate Stories" will show at The
Hippodrome from May 27 to June 2.

disappointed it may be something better

Negatively charged Alkaline Trio drains reviewer
W 4^ Alkaline Trio
Who gave Alkaline Trio
permission to enter a
recording studio and
spend thousands of hours produc-
ing its songs?
That's exactly how their new
album, "Crimson," sounds.
Few fans will recognize it even
as an Alkaline Trio album.
Sure, they still have the de-
pressing death lyrics but what
I'd like to know is where did the
punk guitars go? They've been
replaced with sound effects and
The first song on the album
- including their first single
"Time to Waste"- begins with a
piano intro that just sets the tone
for a lack of upbeat guitars.
The next song, "The Poison,"
doesn't get any better. I had to
double check my compact disk
player. I thought it switched to
play "Queens of the Stone Age."
At least the
is one of the t
few songs remi-
niscent of the
Alkaline Trio we all know and
love. Some other songs lend the
album some credit like "Death
Bed," "Settle for Satin" and "I
was a Prayer."
But don't get your hopes up.
As the album goes on, after a run
of a few great
Amanda this Tragedy"
Seyfang brings you back
Playlist full circle to the
I know they
where they come from. After all,
.they still reference Chicago and
San Francisco in "Mercy Me."
The Trio should have just put
all their experimental songs at
the beginning or end. It makes it
easier to skip that way.
My suggestion: download
"Death Bed," "Mercy Me," "Fall
Victim," "I was a Prayer" and
"Back to Hell." You won't have
to suffer through the synthesiz-
ers and sound effects on the rest
of the disk.
If you're a true Alkaline Trio
fan and you want to support
them, buy the album May 24.
But don't say you weren't

Staff suggests smooth sounds
-. .. Sunrise Over Sea
EiC The John Butler Trio
Don't be turned off by the
scraggly appearance of this
band's front man, John Butler.
"Sunrise Over Sea" is a must-
have for both the modern hippy
and general listeners.
Sure, he sneaks in some lyr-
ics about karma and treating
Mother Earth with respect, but
he also talks about relationships
Butler's smooth vocals are
backed by the unique sound of
his band, which uses a double
bass rather than a bass guitar.
Listen to the track "Peaches &
Cream" followed by "Zebra,"
and you'll get an idea of this
band's versatility in both sound-
E. Von Dahl Killed the
This CD is a perfect addition
to a punk rock listener's reper-
toire. You can't help but fall in
love with The Matches' catchy
and upbeat sound, although
the energy from .their live per-
formances isn't quite as evident
in their recordings. Their lyrics
span from songs about touring to
jailbait. In "Say 18," for example,
"I got my fingers crossed/so say
18/lie through lip gloss/and .say
18, tonight." Pre-approved for
road trips and sing-a-longs.
Warner Brothers -
Daryl Palumbo, formerly of
Glassjaw, is the current front man
for the pop/rock brilliance that is
If you expect the singer to
sound as he did in his previous
band, .'Lu mj', want to just pick
up a Glassjaw CD.
But for those of you who are
open to a softer side of Palumbo,
"Decadence" should be a new
and happy beginning.
Like the CD jacket cover
of their debut album, Head
Automatica is colorful, flashy
Although their music is cat-
egorized as a pop/rock, there's
something edgy and uninhibited
about the band that you. don't
find in most other groups.
.And if you never pick up this
CD, at least listen to the track
"Beating Heart Baby," arguably a
work of pure pop genius.
Facebook targets colleges
FACEBOOK, from page 9
girl's number blindly, before he could anonymously check her
facebook profile to make sure she was single and dug his kind
of music first.
Mark Zuckerburg, of Westchester, N.Y., started a.small Web
site for a laugh to find the hottest students at Harvard. The
site, Facemash.com, was shut down within .12 hours by the
administration. Citing privacy concerns, they also removed the
school's online campus directory.
In a Biblically reminiscent moment, Zuckerburg said he
could rebuild a better site in only one week. Thefacebook.com
launched the following week.
Within the next week, half of the Harvard undergraduates
had signed up and Zuckerburg enlisted his roommate, eco-
nomics major Dustin Moskovitz from Ocala, to help move the
site to other campuses. From then on Thefacebook.com grew
"We never market anything," says Moskovitz. "Everything
Thefacebook crew selects schools to add based on requests
from students. Their money is made from advertisers that want

Gators still consider Gamecocks a threat at NCAAs
Kim Klement/ Alligator
Hamid Mirzadeh and the Gators will look to duplicate the success
they had earlier against South Carolina in the NCAA Round of 16.
By MICHAEL MAURINO
Repetition can cause things to
become second nature, and that's
when something can go wrong.
That is exactly what the UF
men's tennis team hopes to
avoid starting this Saturday at
the NCAA Championships in
College Station, Texas.
On Saturday, the No. 4-seed
Gators (22-5) will play South
Carolina (20-9), who upset
Oklahoma State over the week-
end to make it to the Round of
16. The Gators defeated South
Carolina 7-0 on April 16.
If UF defeats South Carolina,
a possible quarterfinal matchup
would be against Florida State
or Illinois, who has defeated UF
four times'in three seasons.
When asked if he wanted the
Illini in the quarterfinals, Coach
Andy Jackson was careful not to
look too far ahead.
-'Would I like to play Illinois in
the quarterfinals? Absolutely. I'd
like to play anyone in the quar-
terfinals," he said.
Jackson calls South Carolina
a "known factor" because UF
has played them so recently. But,
he warns that just because the
Gators swept the last meeting, it
doesn't mean UF dominated.
"A lot of times in tennis the
final score can be deceiving be-
cause the individual matches
can be really close," Jackson said.
"When w6 beat South Carolina
7-0...we won three three-set
matches. So if South Carolina
wins those three matches, and we
lose doubles, then they win."
It may be tempting to think UF
has a free pass into the next round
after drawing the Gamecocks, but
Jackson said his players expect a
"Our guys aren't expecting

"Our guys aren't expecting
anything easy," he said. "The
thing that we can control is that
SC will be super prepared. They
will be sharp, because it's pretty
easy to- play a team that the last
time you played them you got
The Gators have a veteran
team, but two freshmen have
made their way into the lineup.
Nestor Briceno and Greg
Ouellette have spent their singles
season on courts two and four,
respectively. After standout ju-
nior Janne Holmia was out for
the season after back surgery,
the two became crucial to UF's
Jackson said Briceno and
Ouellette were two of the best
college recruits in the country,
and while their play is not sur-
prising, the way they have done
"They have surprised me with
the level at which they can nrake
a contributionn" Jackson said.
"Did I think they were going to
have the records and be able do
what they've done, particularly
making up for losing Holmia?
I wouldn't have expected that.
That would have been too much
pressure on them."

SOFTBALL, from page 27
from a top-20 team to a squad that posed
no threat whatsoever on its own field in its
own conference postseason tournament.
But the Gators don't truly have an attitude
problem, they just need to buckle down and get
back to the fundamentals of softball, Johns said.
Only then will the mental adjustments
fall into place.
Broken down technically, this week's
preparation is quite simple.
"Early in practice we've been working
fundamentals, but then we move into the
situational stuff," Johns said. "We're.put-
ting the team under a lot of stress with live
runners, live balls flying at them, forcing
them to communicate."
John's players have completely bought
into this system of simplified goals and fun-
"In the SEC tournament, we couldn't put
things together. We played sloppy defense
and we couldn't get runs when we needed
them," pitcher and designated player
Mandy Schuerman said. "Practice has
been intense and we've worked really hard
this week; the mental mistakes will- correct
"As a team leader, I've got to keep everyone
focused. But that's not really a problem because
everyone knows what they need to do now."
"I don't think that our problems are as

NCAA MEN'S AND WOMEN'S GOLF
Senior leads UF into 12th spot
THE MEN'S TEAM WILL
START NCAA PLAY TODAY.
For the first time all spring, the
fab four UF first-year golfers are
actually playing like freshmen.

est stage, the NCAA Championship,
to trip up Tiffany Chudy, Whitney
Myers, Sandra Gal and C.J. Kim,
the highest-rated freshmen group
according to Golfstat.
Instead, a senior paced the
Gators in the opening rounds.
Led by Andrea Vander Lende,
the UF women's golf team is in a
tie for 12th following Wednesday's
Auburn and Pepperdine hold
the lead at +18 on the Meadow
Course in Sunriver, Ore., 19 shots
- ahead of the Gators. '
That deficit would be greater if
not for Vander Lende, the only UF
golfer in the top 20.
She collected five birdies over
her first 36 holes, finishing on
Wednesday at 5-over-par in a tie
for 14th, just three shots behind the
lead pack of four golfers.
But the senior's strong play
didn't rub off on the UF freshmen.
Chudy fired the low rounds
among the quartet on both Tiesday
and Wednesday, but a first-round
74 followed up with a 75 puts her in
a tie for 23rd at 7-over-par.
Kim remains three shots behind
Chudy after recording rounds of 75
and 77, placing her in a tie for 53rd.
Gal and Myers, the two hottest
UF golfers during the postseason,
struggled during the first two days.
Gal, who led UF with a tie for
tenth at the NCAA East Regional,
combined rounds of 79 and 78 to
total +15 and finish tied for 94th.

hired by Tulsa
Former UF women's basketball assistant coach
Charlene Thomas-Swinson was named as the head coach
of Tulsa, the school announced Wednesday. Thomas-
Swinson will be introduced formally on
Friday in Tulsa.
Thomas-Swinson has been a Gators
assistant coach for the last three seasons.
Prior to her stay in Gainesville, she spent
three years on the coaching staff for the
WNBA's Orlando Miracle and later
followed then-head coach and general
Thomas-Swinson manager Carolyn Peck who resigned to
accept the head position at UF on April
"Tulsa definitely made a tremendous selection in hiring
Charlene as its next head coach," UF head coach Carolyn
Peck said. "She did a great job at St. John's when she was
there, bringing that team from the bottom of the conference
to the top-half of the league. Charlene is a great teacher and
relates extremely well to players."

LaPorta carries Gators to victory against Stetson
By TIM CASEY
Matt LaPorta has broad shoulders. Good
thing for him, because otherwise it would
be difficult to carry the team.
Maybe that's an overstatement, but his
bat has been known to'provide a spark for
the No. 12-ranked Gators when the team
needs it most.
"He got a ball out over the. plate
that wasn't supposed to- be

glove jump-started a stagnant team that ap-
peared to be headed for defeat. He would
next put the Gators ahead with a two-out,
two-run home run, which led UF to a 6-4
victory over the Hatters.
"Today, coming out for [batting prac-
tice], I was real sluggish," LaPorta said.
"I just asked God to help me through this
because I was real lethargic today."
In the top of the eighth inning, LaPorta
made an impressive play on a sharply hit
ground ball by Braedyn Pruitt to start a
"Matt LaPorta's defensive play and then
the ball he hit out was a big catalyst for us,"
head coach Pat McMahon said. "I think a
big factor was that we kept ourselves very
close for that to happen. We have a lot of
respect for Stetson and their program; they
have a very-good ballclub. Their pitcher
tonight was outstanding."
UF senior center fielder Jeff Corsaletti
ended a 0-for-15 slump with a single in the
sixth inning. After the game, he credited his
success to a lucky belt.
"When we traveled, I left my belt at my
house," Corsaletti said. "I forgot to bring it
to the field for the last two weeks. I brought
my lucky belt in, got a couple of knocks and
we brought the win home. It's good head-
ing into the final weekend of the season."
Stetson starter Chris Ingoglia pitched six
innings, allowing three runs on nine hits.
He was in position to win the game when
Hatters coach Pete Dunn removed him in
"It's disappointing," Dunn said. "We
scheduled this game because we wanted

Outdated names deserve review
In the ever-growing war between UF
and-Florida State for state supremacy,
an odd turn of events could give the
Gators a leg up in the heated rivalry.
In a possible, albeit unlikely, sce-
nario, FSU may be forced to drop the
Seminoles nickname. Talk about a nasty
blow to garnet-and-gold pride.
An NCAA executive committee will
evaluate the 30 teams in the NCAA that
use Native American nicknames and
mascots before deciding whether it will
force the teams to adapt new names.
Rumor has it that the governor
is already lobbying to rename, the
Tallahassee-based team the Jebs! (excla-
mation mark included).
In the end, this is just another example
of political correctness gone out of whack.
With the exception of the Southeast
Oklahoma State Savages (opps), most
nicknames preserve the memory of Native
American tribes that are all but extinct.
But what would happen if we threw
political correctness out the window and
renamed teams whose nicknames seem
simply outdated? Let me show you:

One game at a time.
That, according to head coach
Karen Johns and many of her
players, is how the UF softball
team will approach their opening
match of the NCAA Regionals
with Bethune-Cookman Friday
The ailing Gators, just days
off of a two-and-out performance,
in the Southeastern Conference
tournament, won't be looking
back at any of their recent woes.
"Obviously we're disappoint-
ed, but we can't look back at this
point," Johns said. "We've just
got to work on getting back our
strength and go from there."
Chosen as one of the 16 re-
gional sites in the tournament,
UF will host UCF, USF and
Bethune-Cookman. The Gators
have seen and defeated two of
the three teams this season, but
this squad is not taking anything

first two rounds at home. They even

ence in the first round and a school

The two teams have met be-

fifth in singles nationally, she and
