A new ski boat at Lake Wauburg
should ensure its popular ski and
wakeboard program will fill up every
week this summer.
"We are maxed out," said Bill James,
director of the Outdoor Recreation
Center at the lake. "We try and take as
many students as possible, but there is
only so many we can handle."
On May 24, the first day of the
boat's use, the program reached capac-
ity for the week in less than an hour.
The ski boat is used Tuesday
through Friday from 1:15 p.m. to 5:
James said the average total atten-
dance per year is approximately 2,620
One of the boat's drivers, UF stu-
dent Tim Deaux, said the new boat
comes equipped with cruise control,
which will make the rides smoother.
"We mostly pull skiers and wake-
boarders, and some of them are very
specific about their speed," Deaux
Wakeboarders like to be pulled
between 22 mph and 25 mph, while
skiers like to get closer to 30 mph,
The boat takes one to three riders
out at a time, and about 10 riders in a
day, he said.
Every year, UF purchases a new ski
boat and trades in last year's model.
The new boat, a 2005 Malibu
Wakesetter, retails for approximately

To help improve its service, some
changes have been made to the pro-
gram's reservation policies.
For example, each skier now
must call for himself. In the past,
groups could simply pass the phone
from one person to another, which-
led to large time blocks being taken
up by a small group of people.
"The great thing about this pro-
gram is that it's for everyone, not just
the water-sport clique," James said.
For those who can't book a time
slot for skiing, there are still plenty of
other activities at Lake Wauburg.
"We have sailboats, paddleboats,
canoes, kayaks, flying-disc golf and a
rock-climbing wall," Lake Wauburg
lifeguard Carolyn Desey said.
James said one possible idea to
further improve the system would
be developing a call-waiting system
that would allow callers to know how
many people are before them.
"It's a very popular program, and
we hope that students who are inter-
ested in it will be able to ski at least
every other week," James said.

take the swim test can be found at ww

Local artists contribute to Florida folk celebration

Dottie Prince, of Gainesville, Ga., picks out a tune on the Dulcimer at the 53rd
annual Florida Folk Festival, held in White Springs on May 27.
By AMANDA BROWN.
Alligator Contributing Writer
The Southern-folk sounds of Whitey Markle and
the Swamprooters brought a little bit of Gainesville
culture to the stage on Friday during the 53rd an-
nual Florida Folk Festival.
Markle, a woodshop teaching lab specialist at
the UF College of Design, Construction & Planning,
and his Florida bluegrass band were among some
of the participants from the area who attended the
event, which celebrates Florida traditions..
Wendy Welch, festival director and program
supervisor for the Stephen Foster Folk Culture
Center State Park, said the mission of the festival is
to showcase Florida ii all its folk-cultural ways.
The festival, hosted within the 888-acre park
along the Suwanee River in White Springs, ran from
Friday to Sunday and showcased performances
from 11-time Grammy-winning artist Emmylou'
Harris and many other acclaimed folk artists.
The event broke a sales record in pre-sale ticket
orders, said Welch, who expected about 25,000
people to attend the event over the weekend..
"It brings an annual regeneration," she said.
"It is almost an emotional measuring stick for

thriving and which communities are not, Welch
Markle, who sang of hurricanes, airboats and
UF, feels that singing his songs helps keep his cul-
ture alive. He has participated in the festival since
1978 and has written 12 songs about Florida's heri-
tage and traditions.
"I guess it is kind of qui',otic "he said. "It is all
Markle draws from different experiences
throughout his lifetime to develop ideas for his
songs, such as teaching at the Union Correctional
Institution in Raiford. The lyrics to some songs,
such as "Rabbit Fever," even feature prison slang.
Another song, "Proleterian Football Blues," sati-
rizes the hierarchy at UF and the new dry-campus
policy. It is about getting arrested for sneaking alco-
hol into the stadium during a football game.
However, Markle's favorite song, called "The
East Florida Blues," is a tune that shows his frustra-
tion with migration of northerners to the South.
Other Gainesville area residents participating in
the festival wanted to send a message expressing
their concerns about Florida's wildlife. Dressed in
brightly-colored costumes, one ecology-minded
group paraded through the park as various species
Dale Crider, a wildlife biologist who lives near
Newnan's Lake, promoted his message about
the importance of wildlife education by dancing
around the festival dressed as a giant dragonfly.
Others in Crider's group came clad in butterfly,
skunk and mushroom attire.
Crider said the group raises consciousness about
the importance of wildlife by expressing what these
species need to survive.
"It brings an annual regeneration. It is
almost an emotional measuring stick.
Florida Folk Festival director
"We are a procession of Florida wildlife that can
pull in and associate with humans," he said. "We
squeak, squawk, fly, dance ... and sing, of-course."
The group also performs songs written by
Crider about wildlife.
Traditional crafters also attended the festival and
shared cultural customs through handmade jewelry,
colorful blankets and unique shell carvings.
Dan Townsend, a shell carver, uses both mod-
em dentist drills and primitive tools to carve the
ancient medicine language of the Muskogee people
into his shells.
Townsend, who has participated in the festival
for the last 19 years, said the most important feature
of the festival is being able to share the Muskogee
culture with-people. He said these symbols repre-
sent their language, a language of the soul. .
"It has been more of a medicine to me than I
ever would have imagined," he said. "When you
are educating people,-you are always the one to
walk away more educated than others."

Student Web gossip ha
a place in our hearts
Change can be as good as it is inevitable.
For years, those frustrated by the slow-moving
cogs of government and the news media have taken
out their frustrations in the form of the news/political
National politics have seen the devastating power of
these Web sites to out official secrets and pay particular
attention to the spin-free truth.
The war in Iraq, for instance, might never have come
to pass without sustained blogging on both sides of the
question. Trent Lott may not have stepped down as Senate
Majority Leader without the persistence sometimes
annoying of bloggers who traced his allegedly racist
remarks back to middle school.
The advantage of blogs can hardly be disputed:
Although the Alligator receives its news at the same time
as many other sources, including bloggers, the ethical hat
we wear as journalists requires that our reporters gather
more and confirm via several sources information before
we relay the stories.
The physical limitations of committing this reasonably
accurate and researched material to paper slow us down
even further, especially during the summer.
But with the ability to post virtually anything online
in seconds, bloggers can update and edit at will, so they
don't necessarily have to be as vigilant about checking.
facts. Additionally, their identities are rarely associated
with the words they write.
Over the past year, everyone got a w'ell-publicized
crash course in anonymous sources and their checkered
reliability. There's a reason why reporters' names accom-
pany every story they write, for better and worse.
But caveats aside, we consider the Alligator a blog-
friendly.zone. In fact, we briefly got into the act earlier
this year, when a team of Alligator staffers reported blog-
style from the Orange and Brew on Student Government
So we take special interest when our SG becomes the
recurring subject of several blogs, written by self-reported
The very existence of these blogs proves there's much
to talk about in SG land.
Even though it's likely the women and men behind
these "underground" endeavors are loyal to Student Body
President Joe Goldberg, and not radical SG separatists, po-
litical commentary has its place at every table.
No matter whose interests they purport to serve, blogs
are just another way of translating information from the
powers that be to the everyday student with a minimum
Furthermore, their positions on the inside ensure they
can convey information to the average student at least as
quickly as we can, because they don't need to follow the
legal/ethical guidelines we do, such as reporters introduc-
ing themselves while covering a story.
We're also happy they discuss some things in detail that
we could never fully report on.
They even comment on the way the Alligator covers the
same topics, which helps us grow.
Bloggers, we salute you. Come on in sometime we,
owe you a drink or two.
We'll make sure Joe and Bernie aren't watching.

Unfortunately for individuals who enjoy gratuitous
use of the suffix '-gate,' Newsweekgate doesn't
quite roll off the tongue like their most recent
crowning achievements, Rathergate and nipplegate.
One would think the mainstream media learned from
previous indiscretions, but this is not the case.
Recently, Newsweek reported on a military investi-
gation claiming U.S. interrogators flushed copies of the
Quran down the toilet while questioning prisoners at
Later, their one source backed away from-his original
claim and Newsweek retracted the story.
It is extremely important to reveal the stains of
American democracy, but Newsweek should have waited
for further evidence to support their story before compro-
mising the security of American troops.
Unfortunately, this event alludes to a larger problem:
The mainstream media is overrun with scandal, sensation-
alism and journalistic failure.
About a month ago, we were blessed with the emer-
gence of the "runaway bride." In one fell swoop or shall
I say one mad dash she managed to hijack cable news
for an entire week.
This woman got so much exposure she's one step away
from an endorsement deal with Nike.
In addition, you can't even watch the news for 15 min-
utes without hearing the name Michael Jackson.
I know, I know after all the accusations of child mo-
lestation, the public is just waiting for that last, important
question to be answered.
To finally answer it, no, M.J.'s nose hasn't fallen off
Stories like these must not overshadow information
that is far more important, often vital, to an informed
When is the last time you heard news about the en-
vironment? Mercury content in the fish we eat has risen
Aaron Blye to levels harmful to children and
Blye's Eyes pregnant women.. Turning into a
human thermometer seems pretty
important, but hey, that's just me.
What about the millions of people without healthcare?
I think they'd like to know how they're going to afford
health insurance in the future, when arthritis, tendonitis
and every other '-itis' ailment sets in.
Even in the presence of newsworthiness, journalists
still fail the American people. Anchors are far too deferen-
tial to their guests.
Uncovering a lie, whether told by a Republican or
Democrat, does not undermine objectivity. Journalists are
supposed to be seekers of truth, not pacifist bystanders.
As bloggers become more successful than journalists
at uncovering the truth, rather than improve upon their
own broadcasts, cable news channels have arrived at an
epiphany of journalistic genius.
On CNN's "Inside the Blogs," real journalists turn to
two hot interns as they read information from "Skippy
the Bush Kangaroo" off a computer screen. As Jon Stewart
says, "When I want news, I turn to CNN ... and they turn
to Skippy the Bush Kangaroo." Houston, we have a prob-

Conference offers new hope for disengagement in Israel
At the end of the British Mandate in
May of 1948, Israel declared its state-
hood the culmination of-the great
Zionist venture as led by Herzl, Weizmann
For decades Zionist leaders shared
hope with Jewish masses in Russia,
Romania and Poland, but the Holocaust
in its unimaginable scope and practice im-
puted even more dramatic meaning to the
potential reunification of those scattered
And for all the planning ahead of time,
for all the massive population and military
advantages of Arab states such as Egypt,
Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq, they
could not together triumph over the supe-
rior determination of the Israelis in their
war for independence.
And the world is a better place for the
Arab nations' utter failure. As a result,
a beautifully democratic state flowers
Liberalism such as Israel's, combined
with the earnest visions of fragile Arab
democracies, will ensure all the nations of
the Middle East are someday friends.
After all, it is hard to fight a neighbor
you have come to know and love. Since
1948, this day of understanding seemed
But no longer.
One week ago, more than two dozen
Gators attended the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee's Annual Policy
Conference in Washington, D.C., includ-
The committee generously subsidized
travel for students from across the country
so we could meet fellow pro-Israel activ-
ists and witness debates on foreign policy.
Also, we met and discussed Middle East
policy issues with leading analysts, aca-
demics and officials, such as Secretary of
State Condoleezza Rice as well as Senators
Mel Martinez, Bill Nelson, Jim Talent, Jon
Kyl, Rick Santorum and Barack Obama.
We learned from these officials that
Israel unites both parties because it is an
- We found invigorated committee of-
ficials, like committee President Bernice
Manocherian, who were inspired by
President Bush's steadfast commitment
Christian to a real, lasting
Waugh resolution. But
The Final Frontier Prime Minister Ariel
Sharon's risky .po-
litical stratagem of disengagement, upon
which he has gambled his career as well
as his party's credibility, is what really
captured people's imaginations.
There's an old Vulcan proverb: Only
Nixon could go to China.
And so, just as MacArthur made
peace with Japan, and as Reagan broke
through to the Soviet Union, so too does
the controversial Sharon reach out to the
In all these cases, one must love the
people but recognize the institutions for
what they are: decrepit and completely
incapable of representing the people.
As with the stultifying iron shackles of
Communism, the abhorrent corruption of
Palestinian authorities must be dissolved,
so the people can live lives by their own
will and for their own dear hopes final-
. ly free of the terror of a thousand murder-
ous tyrants and thugs.
So although Mahmoud Abbas has said
all the right things, courageously defying
several precedents set by his murder-
ous and incompetent predecessor Yasser
Arafat, sources indicate that the nascent
Palestinian state organization fears change
- not cracking down on arms, but merely
putting them into hiding.
Alas, few things are more feared in the
world than change.
This is still probably a good step. The
moment Sharon and Abbas grasp and seek
to shape could turn into a beautiful dream
or a terrible nightmare.
Hopefully, the- people of the Middle
East will recognize that and seize the mo-
ment by making a breathtaking advance
despite all they have come to know in their
weary political world.
It is true that, for them, uncertainty
abounds as they confront fear of change
and a half century of distrust. But as with
all things, this, too, shall pass. Then Israel
will no longer be unfairly defmnonized as an
enemy, but will instead be embraced as an

Johns released; Gators search for new head coach
Tim Casey/Allgator Staff
Karen Johns speaks after the softball team was eliminated from the NCAA regional tournament
on May 21. Her contract was not renewed and the UAA will conduct a search for a new coach.
By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
After five seasons of never quife
making it over the hump, UF head soft-
ball coach Karen Johns will not return
for a sixth.
UF Athletics Director Jeremy Foley
announced Friday that Johns' contract
will not be renewed this summer and
that a search for her replacement will
"We would like to thank Karen for
all she has done on behalf of the Florida
softball program she is a wonder-
ful person that truly cared about the

it became evident that this program
was not achieving the success that we

The Gators are 2-for-12 in SEC
Tournament appearances under Johns,
and despite four NCAA Tournament
appearances in five years, have been un-
able to advance to a Super Regional.
It was an especially poor late season
for the Gators in 2005. UF collapsed

and followed with back-to-back two-

UF ready for Championships
For the No. 7 UF men's golf team, things are
different than last year heading into the NCAA
Championships, held Wednesday-Saturday at
the Caves Valley Country Club in Baltimore.
Last year, UF was the favorite to win, but
finished tied for sixth place.
This year, some of the pressure is off, but
Coach Buddy Alexander doesn't think winning
the championship is necessary to consider the
season a success.
"If we play well in Baltimore and we finish
in the top five or the top three or something like
that, I think everybody will look at this year as a
big success," he said.
But for UF's top player this year, that's not
"Top five I don't know if that's a success,"
junior Matt Every said. "If we're like 15th going
into the last day, then maybe top five would be
More pressure will be on Oklahoma State
this year, according to Alexander.
"They are in exactly the same position we
were in going into the national championship
a year ago," he said. "We had won seven times,
we were the clear-cut No. 1 team, etc. They
didn't win their regional tournament; we didn't
last year. So I hope they have the same lack of
success that we did."
Alexander said that OSU is the team to beat,
but there are six to eight teams that feel like they
have a legitimate chance at winning. He said the
Gators unquestionably have a chance to win it.

Cameron: Gators will embrace new coach
SOFTBALL, from page 15
Since 1998, the UF softball team has called a $2.6 mil-
lion state-of-the-art facility home, and Foley also hinted
i t the resources and facilities provided to the program
amounted to expectations that have not been reached.
"When you have an extraordinary work ethic, and
you have the resources that we have, and yet you have a
softball program that isn't where we think it should be,
something is missing," Foley said.
And Johns' troubles at UF were not strictly limited to
the playing field.
% In 2003, former UF softball player Andrea Zimbardi
filed suit against the university, alleging that Johns and
other coaches had dismissed her from the team because
she was a lesbian. Zimbardi's case was settled when UF
agreed to provide sensitivity training to its coaches and
athletic staff. The university admitted no wrongdoing in
News of Johns' release came as a surprise to her for-
mer players, some of who had already left Gainesville
on the completion of their season.
"As a team, we were all pretty
shocked," junior outfielder Lindsey

Cameron replacement, Cameron said.

been performing frequently at

and even insight, for the game.
Again, he'd likely have to learn
a few nuances. The downside for
