Moseley wins, completes Swamp ticket

* MOSELEY TOOK ABOUT
57 PERCENT OF THE VOTE.

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

It was deja vu all over again
for ecstatic supporters of Student
Government's newest leaders,
as the Swamp Party's Student
Body treasurer candidate Ryan
Moseley blew his remaining
competition out of the water
early this morning.
Moseley, who faced Unite
Party candidate-Lola Bovell in a
runoff racefor SG's No. 3 office,
garnered 57.5 percent of the vote
in an election with a relatively
low turnout of 4,607 voters.
His opponent garnered 41.2
percent of the vote.
Swamp's other executive can-
didates, John Boyles and Lydia
Washington, won the respective
offices of Student Body president
and vice president during last
week's general election.
About 10,000 students cast


ballots in that race.
The general election also de-
termined about half the members
of Student Senate.
SG's newly elected officials
will control nearly $12 million in
student money.
"I am excited, impassioned
and ready to go," Moseley said
after his victory. "I am very sur-
prised."
Nearly 200 Swamp and Unite
supporters turned out to the
Reitz Union's Orange & Brew
on Wednesday night, where SG
Supervisor of Elections Erika
Kane announced the winner just
past midnight.
This week's runoff was forced
when neither Moseley nor Bovell
secured 50 percent of the vote
during the general election.
Independent treasurer candidate
Susan Henriques, who received
22 percent of the vote, hampered
their efforts.
Although last week's totals
were not enough to win him the
treasurer office, Moseley came

SPECIAL REPORT

Sex ploys seek the grades


By MARIA LAVERGHETTA
Alligator Writer

Clad in a miniskirt and a mesh top, a
chemistry student waltzed into Kenneth
Merz's office at the end of finals week.
Merz, then at Pennsylvania State
University, wondered if her intentions were to
use her feminine wiles to get a better grade.
Merz, now a UF chemistry professor,
rushed to his office door, avoiding a potential-
ly incriminating or awkward situation.
The college cliche of women using their
assets to improve their grades might just be
true. And, if Merz had succumbed to mesh
and mini, his university would have allowed
it- with a frown.
UF, like Penn State, allows relationships
between faculty and students, but they are
strongly discouraged, according to the UF
General Counsel Web site and the Penn State
staff handbook.
The General Counsel Web site lists the only
requirement: If a conflict of interests arises,
there must be a "resolution."
UF Provost Janie Fouke said that if a pro-

fessor had an amorous or sexual relationship
with a student, he or she would be using "ex-
tremely poor judgment."
"If our policies allow it, I would think they
need to be reviewed," Fouke said.
Merz, whose experience at Penn State
happened 10 to 12 years ago, said that even
though the student was
not wearing the correct at-
tire, the situation remains
apocryphal.
"So much of it is a he-
said, she-said type of situ-
ation," Merz said.
In the past, student-
teacher relationships were
Fouke commonplace, said Larry
Schnell, a UF journalism professor.
"When I was in school, it happened all the
time," he said. "We didn't think the same in
the '70s. We have totally different standards
now."
About 25 years ago, David Denslow, a UF
economics professor, received a rare solicita-

Photos protest abortion


By SHARILYN WISKUP
Alligator Contributing Writer

University Police guarded the
Plaza of the Americas today and
Wednesday as UF's Pro-Life Alliance
and The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform
members displayed gory photos of an
aborted fetuses and genocide.
The photos were meant to show
and explain abortion and equate it to
genocide, which is defined as the de-
liberate and systematic destruction of
a racial, political or cultural group. The
display created a controversy among
UF students.
The police asked some protesters,
who opposed the display by holding a
tarp over the photos, to leave the area.
Before that, a man read dead baby
jokes to passersby.

for the center, said that although the pro-

they are not permitted to exercise their
rights within the zone of the Center for
Bio-Ethical Reform's display.
"Only pictures can adequately
show the truth," he said. "We want
people to see what it's like to make a
bad decision."
On The Center for Bio-
Campus Ethical Reform brought
the project to UF in 1999
and has more recently flown banners
above the campus and driven trucks
displaying pictures of a 10-week abor-
tion.
Latrice Hankerson, a women's
studies junior, was shocked when
she stepped up to the fence to see the
photos.
"These pictures give me nightmares,"

Kennedy Jr. criticizes media for ignoring environment


By BOBBY EAGLE
Alligator Contributing Writer

The media is not doing its job in edu-
cating the public on critical environmental
issues, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. said at the
Phillips Center for the Performing Arts on
Tuesday.
"We have an indolent and negligent
press that has simply let down the democ-
racy," said Kennedy, a noted environmental
lawyer, radio host and New York Times best-
selling author.
In his speech, titled "Our Environmental
Destiny," Kennedy told a crowd of about


1,200 that there is no such thing as a liberal
media in the U.S., only a capitalist media run
by large, multinational corporations.
"Most Americans know more about Brad
and Jen than they do about global warm-
ing," he said.
Kennedy emphasized that environmen-
tal issues are not partisan issues, and that
Democrats and Republicans generally have
the same core values.
"There's nothing radical about the idea of
clean air and clean water for our children,"
he said.
Laurie David, environmental activist
and wife of "Seinfeld" creator Larry David,


introduced Kennedy in a speech about the
future implications of global warming.

just a glimpse of what's to
come," David said.
After the show, the
crowd moved to the
Phillips Center lobby for
a book signing in which
Kennedy signed copies of
Kennedy 1his newly released New
York Times best-seller,
"Crimes Against Nature."
The event was part of the kickoff for the
Levin College of Law's 12th annual Public


Interest Environmental Conference and
cost about $15,000, said Nicole Trueblood,
vice chairwoman of promotions for Accent,
Student Government's speaker's bureau.
"It's amazing that we actually are able
to bring a Kennedy to the University of
Florida," Trueblood said.
The event was sponsored by Accent and
the Levin College of Law.
Fourth-year environmental engineering
major Mike Friedlander said he came to the
speech to learn more about environmental
issues.
"I hope his words and his method are
momentum for change," Friedlander said.


Flamenco dancers bring Spanish folk dancing to UF


tric Lamora /Alligator
Tamara Millar, of the Orlando-based Flamenco del Sol Dance Company, performs flamenco to the
tunes of Ben Hooper's guitar at the College of Public Health and Health Professions on Wednesday.


By RACHEL ANDERSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

With every twirl of her fingers
and each colorful spin, Tamara Millar
clapped her hands, clanked her heels
and danced to the strum of a guitar:
Millar, 37, was one of three fla-
menco dancers from the
Flamenco del Sol Dance
Student Company, the group that
Life entertained about 100
people Wednesday night
in the auditorium at UF's College of
Public Health and Health Professions.
Vuestra Alianza Espafiola, or
VALE, a UF-sponsored club,- spent
about $900 to put on the second an-
nual show, and President Desiree
Zerquera, 23, said it was well worth
it.
VALE is UF's only club that focus-
es on Spanish culture strictly related
to Spain.
Flamenco is a traditional gypsy
dance of Andalucia, Spain, and is
believed to have originated in India. It
is considered the most-developed folk
dance anywhere, Millar said.
A dancer, teacher and choreogra-


pher for more than 20 years, Millar
and her husband are co-directors of
the dance group. Although she said
they spend most of their time on the
road, they love every minute of it. She
said flamenco is very rich in Arabic
roots and is her "favorite thing in the
whole world."
Her flashing smile on stage put
sentiment into action.
The audience seemed just as
pleased as they cheered on Millar,
the other dancers and guitarist with
shouting and clapping. Several stu-
dents in the crowd even joined the
dancers on stage at .the end of the
performance.
With about 140 active members,
VALE provides students with unique
opportunities, such as trips to St.
Augustine, which has a history of
Spanish colonization, Zerquera said.
Rhonda Umbrecht, a UF gradu-
ate now employed by UF's College
of Business, found out about
Wednesday's event through friends in
the organization.
"I thought it was a great illustra-
tion of Spanish culture," she said.
"The girls were lovely."

Sustainability strategies key to making UF a Top 10


By LINDSEY FRANCO
Alligator Writer

Leadership in sustainability could give
UF the edge it needs to be a Top 10 public
university.
Sustainability, the movement to use re-
sources efficiently, aims to break the linear
"take-make-waste cycle" our society has per-
fected, said Dedee DeLongpre, the director of
the Office of Sustainability.
"Sustainability gives us another lens
through which to look at leadership,"
DeLongpre said. "It is the ultimate leader-


ship."
Since taking office in 2004, UF President
Bernie Machen has made sustainability and
fostering a greener campus his priorities by.
creating DeLongpre's position.
DeLongpre hosted an open-ended discus-
sion Wednesday with members of the Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences, the UF
Physical Plant Division and experts in the field
of biological sciences to brainstorm ideas and
plan a two-day sustainability conference.
She said the October conference, which
UF will host, hopes to inspire other Florida
universities to initiate research in the field of


"Sustainability gives us another
lens through which to look at lead-
ership. It is the ultimate leader-
ship."
Dedee DeLongpre
Office of Sustainability director

sustainability by celebrating UF's explosive
research and education in the field.
DeLongpre envisions a future in which UF
officials integrate sustainability education into
the university's undergraduate curriculum.


One way administrators plan to do this is
by creating a Faculty Fellow in Sustainability.
UF ProvostJanie Fouke is currently seeking
an existing faculty member to be the fellow.
DeLongpre said Machen discussed the
university's achievements and progress in sus-
tainability at the 2005 conference. DeLongpre
began in her position last month.
She asked for suggestions and feedback
about this year's conference as she zipped
through a slideshow that mapped out the
conference's planning process.
The conference will be Oct. 25 and 26, kick-
ing off National Campus Sustainability Day.

out on top during that race as well
with 4,400 votes.
Due to concerns with techni-
cal accuracy, the results of this
Spring's election have yet to be
validated, but Moseley said he is
looking forward to accomplishing
the goals set forth on Swamp's
platform.


"It's what turns me on. It's my
passion," he said. "I think this $12
million is one of the best ways stu-
dents get to see services from the
University of Florida."
Moseley, now a student sena-
tor, is chairman of the Budget and
Appropriations Committee. He
will begin his duties as Student
Body treasurer in May, facing
a projected SG deficit of about
$309,000 and dwindling reserve


funds.
However, with his experience.
as budget committee chairman,
Moseley said he is prepared to take
on the task.
Though she did not leave the
Orange & Brew a winner this morn-
ing, Bovell comforted her support-
ers outside the restaurant.
"It's OK. It's OK," Bovell said,
while hugging Davier Rodriguez, a
close friend who burst into tears as


he heard the results.
"Lola has put her heart and her
soul into this," he said before the
results were announced. "She has
a passion that is beyond words
- passion for what she wants to
accomplish."
Other supporters hugged Bovell
and chanted, "We love Lola," while
Moseley supporters broke into a
rendition of Swamp's theme song.
"We want the Swamp," they


chanted.
Student Body President-elect
Boyles, meanwhile, hugged
Moseley after his victory and said
he is excited for the upcoming year.
"I think he's going to do an ab-
solutely amazing job," Boyles said
Wednesday afternoon, adding with
a cheeky grin, "I'm glad that the
Swamp family is united."

Kate Keeley, president of the Pro-Life Alliance, speaks to a student Wednesday about abortion issues ad-
dressed in the Genocide Awareness Project display on the Plaza of the Americas. The club invited the Center
for Bio-Ethical Reform to set up the exhibition that will be up through Thursday.


Photo display compares abortion to genocide


ABORTION, from page 1.

she said. "It's obnoxious, it's upsetting, and it's so sicken-
ing. It's an invasion of my mind."
Hankerson is pregnant and is choosing to keep her
baby. She believes that women have the right to decide if
they want an abortion.
"I don't think it's murder, but it's not something I could
emotionally do," she said. "I couldn't live with myself. I
would always wonder who that baby was."
Sara Hanson, president of UF organization Vox: Voices
for Planned Parenthood, said she felt the display was an
inaccurate scare tactic used to sway the abortion opinions
of ignorant students.
"I think it's bullshit," she said. "Frankly, they have all
kinds of lies in the photos and in the pamphlets."
She said the organization was instructed by the Planned


Parenthood Federation of America to have no engagement
with the Genocide Awareness Project, because the nature
of the display could lead to heated debate and violence.
In response to the project, a meeting and movie will be
held tonight in the Reitz Union for members of Voices for
Planned Parenthood and those interested in hearing the
other side of argument to vent about what they saw and
heard Wednesday and today.
Aleksandra Lewandowski, 21, a member of Pro-Life
Alliance at UF, will not attend the meeting because she be-
lieves in what the Genocide Awareness Project stands for.
"Murder is murder," she said. "If people realize that a
baby is a human, they might not be so nonchalant about
killing it."
However, campus Rabbi Jonathan Siger believes that
comparing genocide to abortion is a false analogy.
"Last time I checked," he said. "There is not a great fetus
civilization or race of fetuses."


Come-ons cause conflicts

RELATIONSHIPS, from page 1

tion. A student walked into his office and asked him if he knew of
anyone who could photograph her for a medical textbook.
Denislow said this was the most overt and only directly sexual
come-on he has ever received for a better grade.
Schnell said the problem with a student-teacher relationship is
that it presents a conflict of interest. The professor would have to
abstain from evaluating that person in order for the relationship to
continue, he said. As long as there is any real involvement in a cose
relationship, the teacher should not instruct the student, he said.
However, some students do not take no for an answer.
"I'll do anything anything," a student said.
David Leverenz, an English professor at UF, recalled a retired
colleague's risqu6 story of a female student trying to use her sexual-
ity to get a better grade.
The story shocked Leverenz when he heard it, but he recalled the
"faculty flasher" when he was at Rutgers University and quickly
changed his mind. The student at Rutgers used to run across the
quad and flash faculty for fun.
Special Leverenz said no instances of sexual innuendo have
S happened to him because of how he approaches his
students.
"Its all about setting boundaries," Leverenz said..
Even with set boundaries, the relationship can still be ambigu-
ous.
A student, who wished to remain anonymous, already had anA
in her class and a relationship with her instructor. She said it was
just a one-time thing.
"It was just a thing, and then it happened," she said. "I knew bet-
ter than to pursue anything. It was just one crazy night."
She added that if she had another good-looking instructor that
she met outside of class, she might do it again.
Because most professors agree dating one of their students
would make it harder to objectively evaluate them, Web sites such
as www.rateyourprofessors.com present an entirely new side of
student evaluation toward their teachers.
The site is designed to evaluate a professor or teaching assistant's
teaching and grading ability, but comments sometimes sneak into
the steamy side. The chili-pepper icon on the Web site signifies that
a teacher is "hot." This direct innuendo could be simply due to the
quality of teaching or how the instructor looks.
Prabhu Venkataraman,. a TA who has a "hot" rating on the
Web site, said the scale is measured by the vibe a teacher gives off.
Venkataraman said a student tried to bribe him with money, and he
hopes that he did not give off that vibe.
"Students are pretty good at reading their professors," he said.
However, Matthew Blake, a UF journalism professor who re-
ceived an average rating on the Web site, said the authority figure
versus pupil presents an unusual relationship.
"Sometimes it is difficult to tell if it's flirting or if they are just
being friendly," Blake said.

Dad accused


of baby's death

By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
Alligator Writer
srodriguez@alligator.org

A homeless man is accused of killing his 7-week-
old infant by giving her an overdose of Children's
Benadryl and suffocating her with blankets on
Tuesday, according to a Gainesville Police report.
Lee Sukhoi Harris, 32, was living in St. Francis
House with his wife when he gave his daughter,
Kadena, four doses of 1.5 milliliters of Children's
Benadryl and a 0.625 milliliter dose
of Infants' Motrin.
NeWS Kadena's mother, 27-year-old
Christine Harris, screamed for help
when she realized that Kadena was not breathing,
said Kent Vann, executive director of St. Francis
House.
"Someone tried to resuscitate the baby before
they went to the hospital but had no luck," Vann
said.
Infants are especially sensitive to the effects of
antihistamines, and the drug should not be used on
newborns, according to Rxlist.com
Harris told police he gave Kadena the medica-
tion because she was upset and he wanted to get
some sleep, according to the report. Harris also said
he folded three baby blankets four times and put
them over Kadena's face to muffle her cries, accord-
ing to the report.
Vann said Harris and his wife started living in
St. Francis House in January while Christine was
pregnant.
It is the first time an infant has died in St. Francis
House, Vann said.
"We never had a problem with [Harris]," he
said. "We've never even had to call the police."
Harris was charged with child abuse and is be-
Sing held on $250,000 bond at the Alachua County
Jail.


Barbecue roasts animal rights group


* COLLEGE REPUBLICANS HOPE
TO ENCOURAGE MEAT EATING.

By MAYA CARPENTER
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF students enjoyed $500 worth of
meat Wednesday for the second an-
nual People Enjoying Tasty Animals
barbecue sponsored by the UF College
Republicans.
A play off of People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals, the free barbecue
was herd from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the
Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity house.
Last year, the Republicans gave away
bratwurst, pork, beef and venison but
ran out of food. This year the group had
enough hamburgers and hotdogs to feed
300 people.
At the barbecue, the group sold $15
T-shirts, designed with the people-en-
joying-tasty-animals theme and images
of pigs and chickens with for-sale signs
on them.
The College Republicans use the acro-
nym PETA as a way of showing students
it's OK to eat meat. The national organi-
zation PETA, on the other hand, opposes
the use of animals for human purposes.
However, members said they're not
out to mock the real PETA, but to show
appreciation for meat.
The Republicans were not making
fun of PETA, but using the acronym
for what they want it to stand for, said
Scott Miller, vice-chairman of the College
Republicans.
"The main reason is just to have fun,"
said Ashlee Black, chairwoman of the
College Republicans. She added that
another reason for this event is to bet-
ter inform the public about the national
PETA.
Black said PETA is an extreme group,
that does insane things. She said having
programs like this would help the real
PETA "lighten up."
Throughout the day, the group isked
for donations to help fund other pro-
grams like the PETA barbecue.

Legislature ponders bill

removing UF funding
It seems like every day we hear more bad news for UF's
financial situation.
The poor just keep getting poorer.
This time, a bill before the state Legislature, if passed into
law, could significantly hamper UF's ability to garner funds.
Currently, the state matches private donations above
$100,000 by a certain percentage. The greater the donation, the
greater the percentage the state provides, and donations of $2
million or more are matched dollar for dollar.
The bill in question removes the requirement from the state
to match private donations. Specifically, the bill will replace the
word "must" with the word "may," as in: The state may match
private funds if it feels like it.
The bill is doubly bad for the already financially strained
university. Most obviously, it has the potential to directly cut
state funding. But there are subtler forces at work here as well.
The current matching-funds guarantee by the state serves
as a powerful tool to encourage patrons to donate greater
sums to the university. As Chris Brazda, spokesman for the
UF Foundation, said, "If you're a donor, you want to see your
donation go as far as it can. Doubling your money is pretty at-
tractive."
Especially when you're trying to get buildings named after
you.
Without assured matching funds from the state, the expected
benefits from donating drop off sharply. That's a bad thing.
Maybe the state will continue to match the funds for some
time in the future, regardless of the change. But even if it does,
there will he some small doubt in patrons' minds-that deter
them from donating as much.
And right now, that's a doubt we can't afford to let them
have.

Moseley Victorious


T Ihe voters have spoken.
On Wednesday
night, we got the
announcement that Ryan
Moseley will become the
next Student Government
treasurer.
But while voters were
confident in the Swamp
Party candidate's abilities,
we still have our misgivings.
It wasn't so long ago
that Moseley oversaw the
organizational budgeting
process that seemed perpetu-
ally doomed to fail. Twice he
presented the budget to the
Student Senate, and twice it
was flawed. The third time,
Moseley accidentally distrib-
uted the wrong budget.
Call us old fashioned, but
we expect more from our SG
officials. Bungled budgets
are serious problems for
someone seeking to control
the purse strings for SG's $12
million in funds.
Even though Stan


Beckerdite and SG Finance
eventually took the blame for
the errors, Moseley should
have exercised his discretion
and at least taken the time to
look over their numbers.
We hope that he'll take
care to be more judicious and
responsible as treasurer than
he was as budget chairman.
The treasurer position has
been plagued by mismanage-
ment, and we're seriously
concerned about the pos-
sibility of more off-campus
private pig roasts making it
through SG's funding pro-
cess.
But the most important
thing Moseley can do is to
avoid becoming a rubber
stamp for his party's agenda.
The fact that his party will be
in power doesn't release him
from his responsibilities to
the student body.
That's something that ev-
ery SG politico should keep
in mind.

Religious cities a re
he recent article by Jake Ramsey regarding the Ave
Maria community was so full of flaming generaliza-
tions and gross exaggerations that some clearing up
is well due.
There is one point that was agreeable and that is
that the growing trend toward "self-segregation" is not
positive.
In fact, it is a very good indicator of our nation's in-
creasingly amoral state and the drive of many to isolate
themselves from it.
.From a religious standpoint, including a Catholic
standpoint, self-segregation is not a positive thing. We
are to be in the world, not out of the world, turning our
backs on it.
However, there are those out there, with whom I can
sympathize, who find it so difficult to lead spiritual and
fulfilling lives amidst the decaying moral climate of our
country that separation is the only viable option.
If they're happier that way, more power to them.
They're not hurting any of us.
As Ramsey said, there are many similar religious
communities across the country, particularly in New
England, and they have been there for many years with
no problems.
This is, of course, a free country, and Tom Monaghan
can spend his money as he pleases.
He isn't forcing anyone to inhabit his town, and he
isn't plotting to spread his brand of Catholicism across
America.
That happened more than two centuries ago.
I find it disconcerting that Ramsey considers the
illegalization of pornography to be such a vice to the
Founding Fathers' ideals of life, liberty and the pursuit


;sult of moral decay
Anthony M. of happiness and such a threat to
Piferrer our country. A recent psychologi-
Speaking Out cal study provided evidence that
pornography addictions are physi-
ologically real and have already
proven to be detrimental to families and relationships
across the nation. Porn should be just as illegal as crack
and pot for how harmful it is, not to mention how dis-
gusting.
It is equally disconcerting that Ramsey seems to
consider exposure to the corruptions of this world to
be not just an opportunity, but a positively reinforcing
necessity of life.
There are, thankfully, many people in this country
who do not think as he does and believe that it is better
to stay away from such vices as pornography, abortion
and contraception, sexual promiscuity, drugs, violence
and the like.
Believe you me that true happiness does not come
from these.
On a final note, it is an extremely gross mistake to
attribute disregard for civil liberties to a so-called "ul-
traconservative" or otherwise just ordinary Christian
trend.
Wasn't Martin Luther King Jr., the Baptist minister,
a civil rights pioneer? Weren't the writers of the Bill
of Rights themselves Christians pioneering civil
rights? Think about it.
If anything, this "heathen" world, as it was tritely
referred to, is the one that's enveloping this country, not
the other way around.
Anthony M. Piferrer is an aerospace engineering fresh-
man.

Anti-abortion activists need to get their facts straight first


The Genocide Awareness Project pre-
sented by the Center for Bio-Ethical
Reform and hosted by UF's Pro-Life
Alliance is political propaganda in its sim-
plest form: scare tactics.
Anti-choice activists believe that they
can frighten people into siding with them
by simply shoving gruesome images in
our faces and lumping abortion in with
some of history's most tragic and violent
episodes including the Rwandan geno-
cide, the Holocaust and racially motivated
lynching.
Unfortunately, this is a pattern that we
have witnessed time and time again; the
only effect these displays have is to alien-
ate passersby and misinform those who
stop and look.
If you don't believe that this is propa-
ganda, just pass by the display yourself.
Pick up a copy of the pamphlet there
is a blatant lie before you even finish the
second page.
The CBR claims that abortion is "uni-
versally available" and that "abortion is
legal through all nine months of preg-
nancy in all 50 states."


Sara Hanson Oh, really?
Speaking Out Actually, abortion
in America is only al-
lowed up to the 24th week of pregnancy,
and several states all over the nation have
passed laws that restrict it to much earlier
than that.
Over 1,300 anti-choice measures were
considered in state legislatures in the past
two years alone. In fact, just a few days
ago the governor of South Dakota signed
into law a nearly complete ban on all abor-
tions, including women who have been
victims of sexual violence such as rape or
incest.
Fully 87 percent of counties in America
do not have an abortion provider at all.
Not only is abortion not universally
available, its availability is more threat-
ened now than it has ever been since the
1973 Roe v. Wade decision that made abor-
tion legal.
Legality becomes irrelevant when so
many women nationwide don't have ac-
cess to abortion services at all.
The CBR's pamphlet goes on to vilify
and castigate women who have exercised


their legal right to choose abortion.
Of women who opt for an abortion pro-
cedure, rather than carrying an unplanned
pregnancy to term and giving up the baby
for adoption, the pamphlet says their "nar-
cissism [is] shameful beyond imagining."
The pamphlet also claims that women
who receive abortions are so "ashamed of
their conduct" and "desperate ... for ano-
nymity" that they hide their faces when
entering and leaving facilities-that give
abortions.
I would argue that this is more to shield
themselves from the rabid and insensitive
onslaught of anti-choice protesters they
are likely to encounter, who hurl accusa-
tions and epithets instead of the reassur-
ance and assistance they promise.
The reality is that abortion is an ex-
tremely contentious topic; the views on
both sides of this debate are heated and
passionate. Usually, those who have
strong beliefs about abortion are stuck on
those beliefs, unwilling to budge and
that's OK.
However, for those of you who may be
on the fence, don't allow the propagandist


display to be the only thing that shapes
your views on abortion.
Have the presence of mind to see the
other side and to get all the information
before you decide where you stand.
Vox: Voices for Planned Parenthood,
UF's resident pro-choice organization, will
be holding a meeting Thursday in Reitz
Union Room 355 at 7:00 p.m.
We will be discussing the pro-choice
side of the debate, the GAP display, its
implications and our response.
I encourage all of you who may not
have a clear idea of what you believe
about abortion to attend.
We support a woman's right to choose,
but we also believe in prevention.
We support comprehensive sex edu-
cation, responsible sexual behavior and
widespread contraceptive access.
Don't let the Genocide Awareness
Project display be the last word you ever
hear on the debate surrounding abortion.
Take this opportunity to hear both sides of
the story.
Sara Hanson is the president of Vox:
Voices for Planned Parenthood.

Activists threaten faculty expression, officials say


* SOME SAY THAT ACADEMIC
FREEDOM IS IN DANGER.

By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org

Powerful wave of American re-
ligious conservatism is threatening
professors' freedom of expression,
officials from three state universi-
ties agreed at a Wednesday forum at
UF's Emerson Alumni Hall.
"Academic freedom" is an am-
biguous term conservatives use
it to describe a student's right to
challenge professors' liberal views,
while academics say it protects their
own rights to expression.
Hudson Rogers, associate pro-
vost at Florida Gulf Coast University,
offered a concise definition.
"It is an understanding that
creativity and openness df inquiry
are best allowed to grow in an atmo-
sphere of low supervision," he said.
Florida State University Provost
Lawrence Abele said three wealthy
organizations the Scaife, Lynde
and Henry Bradley and John M. Olin
foundations fund the widespread
movement to monitor the views ex-
pressed in college classrooms.
One such activist group is the
Foundation for Individual Rights
in Education. Abele said a student
at UF caught the group's attention


when his professor's skepticism
of the "Just Say No" anti-drug
campaign upset the student's


parent.
FIRE is one of many myriad
groups with similar missions that


have emerged this decade.
In spring of 2005, state Rep.
Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, proposed


Hannah Reichel, Alligator
Hudson Rogers, associate provost at Florida Gulf Coast University, said academic freedom has its limita-
tions when, for example, religion influences the subject material. Rogers was one of four provosts who
spoke and answered questions at Emerson Alumni Hall regarding academic freedom.


a bill that would curb what he
called the "leftist totalitarianism"
of university professors. Abele said
Baxley plans to reintroduce his bill
this spring.
But UF General Counsel Pam
Bernard said another threat to fac-
ulty freedom comes from within the
university.
STenure at UF is tied to "collegial-
ity," or good relations between fac-
ulty. This may encourage conformity
and stifle debate, she suggested.
Speaking as a professor who is
asked to be a team player, Bernard
said, "Aren't you really telling me
that I need to be quieter that I
need to not debate with such pas-
sion?"-
During a question session at the
latter half of the forum, UF Associate
Provost Joe Glover questioned the
freedom faculty have in the research
they conduct.
Years from now, when human
cloning is legal but taboo, Glover
said, researchers may face societal
pressures not to experiment with
the technology. Journalism Dean
Terry Hynes echoed Glover's ques-
tion.
"I think when we move out
on the cutting edge, we're often
bleeding at the same time," Abele
responded with a smile.
He said faculty should push
open the debate on a controversial
issue before acting on it.


Students assist city campaign


By JESSICA RIFFEL
Alligator Writer
jriffel@alligator.org

Students may not have
swarmed to the city election
polls Tuesday, but they made
a difference in Gainesville
politics.
From local high school
students to a UF doctoral can-
didate, students waved signs,
knocked on doors and helped
orchestrate UF administrator
Jeanna Mastrodicasa's win
over former City Commissioner
Tony Domenech.
"They brought energy the
footwork, the passion," said
Mastrodicasa, associate director
of the UF Honors Program.
Students made up more
than half the number of
people who regularly attended
campaign meetings, said Bob
Karp, Mastrodicasa's campaign
manager.
"This was an amazing ef-
fort by students," said Karp,
who has worked on several city
campaigns in the last 10 years.
"This was the most number of
students on a campaign that
I've worked on."
Karp said students brought
fresh ideas to the effort.
"They have a lot of new
ways to contact voters," he
said. "I never knew about
Facebook.com, but they posted
things on Facebook and got the
word out for Jeanna."
While students were active
in campaigning efforts, they
went to the polls in what is
believed to be only moderate


numbers.
Voter turnout at on-campus
polling locations was the low-
est in the city. Only 392 people
voted at the three on-campus
polling locations.
Citywide voter turnout was
about 16 percent, but only 3.88
percent of registered voters on
average cast a ballot in the pre-
cincts with on-campus voting
locations.

"Our campaigns re-
ally enforced the idea
that students are really
important in the life of
Gainesville."
Pegeen Hanrahan
Gainesville Mayor

The lowest turnout, aside
from these locations, was about
5.5 percent in precinct 23, just
south of campus.
Karp said with Mastrodicasa
winning by about 1,000 votes,
the student votes probably
didn't determine the outcome,
but they helped her win.
"It dearly provided an extra "
cushion for her win," Karp
said.
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan,
whom Karp also helped with
her 2004 city election victory,
said she also had a lot of stu-
dents help with her past cam-
paigns.
"Our campaigns really en-
forced the idea that students
are really important in the life of
Gainesville," Hanrahan said.


And she said it's important
to court the student popula-
tion.
"Every single vote counts,
and every voter's interests
count," Hanrahan said.
"And students make up a
huge percentage of voters in
Gainesville."
Student issues played a
key role in Tuesday's election.
Domenech campaigned on a
promise to remove students
from single-family neighbor-
hoods.
He also strictly opposed
extending bar closing hours, a
reversal in his position from his
previous failed attempt in 2005
to return to the commission.
Mastrodicasa said she
planned to enforce already
existing city codes to regulate
student renters' behavior. She
is open to extending bar clos-
ing hours, but only if alcohol is
not served after 2 a.m.
"Tony Domenech ran
against students, and it com-
pletely backfired. It mobilized
more students to vote against
him," said Dan Cicenia, a
UF political science doc-
toral candidate who helped
Mastrodicasa's campaign.
The poll numbers back
Cicenia's belief. -
At the Reitz Union, 96 per-
cent of the ballots were cast in
Mastrodicasa's favor.
She also won 67 percent of
the votes at the Ham Museum
and 71 percent of the votes
at the Phillips Center for the
Performing Arts, both student-
heavy precincts.


Farm tractors can kill


* FARM LIFE CAN LEAD TO
DANGEROUS SITUATIONS.

By MELISSA SMILES
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF graduate Todd Martin is no
stranger to the dangers of farm life.
His friend's father was killed
when he reached for something
stuck in a corn harvester, caught
*his clothes on the machine and was
pulled into it.
"You just got to work intelli-
gently," Martin said. "Take that ex-
tra step to not injure yourself while
working on your equipment."
This week is National
Agricultural Safety Week, an in-
formation campaign intended to
shatter the misconception that farms
are only about serene landscapes.
The UF College of Agricultural and
Life Sciences and the Florida Farm
Bureau Federation have information
available that promotes the practice
of routine farm-safety behaviors.
Martin has met other farmers
whose arms were pinched off while
roping cattle. He also said children
are often unaware of the threats of
large animals and tractors.
Carol Lehtola, an associate
professor in the agricultural and
biological engineering department
said, "Agriculture is not as pastoral
as everyone thinks it is from all the
commercials and so forth, but it is a
dangerous industry."
Agriculture is one of the most
dangerous occupations in the U.S.


and considered more dangerous
than mining.
Lehtola said tractors account
for half of all agricultural-related
fatalities and injuries. The top trac-
tor-related injuries and deaths occur
when tractors overturn, run over
people and collide with motor ve-
hicles on public roadways.
"John Q. Public doesn't realize
that people can fall off those trac-
tors, and it can be a deadly business
out there," Lehtola said.
National Agricultural Safety
Week targets farmers, ranchers and
hobby farmers. Lehtola said people
who farm as a hobby do not usually
acknowledge that the information
available to'professionals applies to
them, too.
"Regardless of the size of the
tractor, all of the same principles ap-
ply," Lehtola said.
Lehtola, co-writer of a Web site
on how to childproof farmsteads,
said adults need to teach their chil-
dren farm-safe behaviors. She said
the average age of a person who is
run over while riding on a tractor as
an extra passenger is 7.
"Machines have no memory and
no conscience," Lehtola said. "They
don't care who you are or what they
cut."
The agricultural and biological
engineering department does not
have any events planned for the
public during National Agricultural
Safety Week, but Lehtola's publica-
tion and more information is avail-
able at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/

Venue gets


back to roots

By BECCA GOLDMAN
Avenue Writer

Say kids, it's time the old Florida Theater
changes hands once again. After a brief stint as
Graffiti Beach, Gainesville's largest privately
owned dub, The Venue, is returning to its original
use.
After purchasing The Venue in January, owner
Alex Guba and his wife Edina said want to appeal
to the largest audience possible.
Local band Velveteen Pink and special guest R.
Star kicked off the first local jam at The Venue on
Sunday. The free concert was one of several events
the dub is promoting in an effort to bring live mu-
sic back to this historic setting.
Ultimate fighting, Chippendales and concerts
appealing to multiple genres are scheduled to
appear at the venue soon, said manager Michael
Ciaranella.
"We're trying to give people an option," he
said. "We're going back toward the old Florida
Theater where it provided entertainment for ev-
eryone."
Ciaranella, more popularly known as "Pickles,"
has managed bars for the past 21 years. He said it's
important to market to certain demographics in
Gainesville while trying to appease as many of
them as possible.
Proof of recent success includes "The Venue
Presents Froggy's," an event put on with the help
of promoters involved in Greek life. With live
music on the main stage, a beer pong room and
$3 Jager Bombs,The Venue packed in almost 1,500
people last Friday, Guba said.
Built in 1928, the building needs some reme-
dial work, including a more updated look, he
said. Guba's vision stems from his work experi-
ence with Miami hot spots. Guba and his wife are
currently working with several promoters to put
Gainesville back on the map as a central location
for live music, said Alicia Karlin, promoter for The
Venue and chairwoman of Student Government
Productions.
"The sound is amazing it feels like you're
playing at the Red Rocks," said Ryan Star, an
acoustic performer at Sunday's show.
The 28-year-old is based out of Soho, N.Y, and
came down especially for the concert. He said he's
been selling out most venues in New York, which
are way too small. Star said he would love to come
back and play The Venue in Gainesville, which is
also home to Star's favorite band, For Squirrels.
You can expect Froggy's to continue on Fridays,
as well as an indie night on Saturdays, said Karlin.
True local fans of Gainesville music can look for-
ward to Sister Hazel, who will be performing on
the very stage where they recorded their video for
"Al for You." For more information on events at
The Venue, call (352) 374-4114.

Comedy fails to launch


hen attending a so-called romantic
comedy, one usually expects to see
something that is somewhat ro-
mantic and at least vaguely comedic.
The results, however, do not always
meet the expectations.
In "Failure to Launch," opening Friday,
Matthew McConaughey stars as Trip, a 30-
something boat salesman who
still lives with his parents. Katie
Trip has no trouble attracting
the ladies, but his unwillingness
to commit has left him without a
relationship for years. When he
wants to drive women away, he
brings them home to meet mom
and dad, and his horrified dates.
never bother him again.
Fed up with the situation, his folks se-
cretly hire Paula, played by Sarah Jessica
Parker, who has the unusual profession of
luring men like Trip out of their childhood
homes for good. Paula confidently guar-
antees that she'll have Trip in love with
her and out on his own within a couple of
months.
Of course, Trip soon finds out about this
little arrangement, and he's hardly thrilled
with the situation.
It turns out that Trip has fallen in love

with Paula, and naturally, Paula is in love
with Trip.
The movie continues as one-would ex-
pect: Trip's feelings are hurt, Paula feels
guilty, they stop speaking and so on. Three
guesses as to how it ends.
In theory, perhaps, the premise of
"Failure to Launch" could turn out a clever

and interesting story. In reality,
the film is so packed with lame
subplots and wannabe-comedy
that there is little room for char-
acter development or any kind of
genuine emotion.
Its eagerness for hilarity relies
on the tired themes of standard
goofball sidekicks, sexual mishaps


and bizarre run-ins with nature.
The feeble attempts at deepness, like
Trip's former fiancee-and Paula's lingering
need to fix these men, fall flat.
The bottom line: This poorly told ro-
mantic comedy might garner a few cheap
laughs with certain crowds, but don't look
for anything more than that. For those
wanting sophomoric humor this Spring
Break, including Mockingbird CPR and
accidental paintball shootings, check it out.
Otherwise, save your cash for a comedy
that's actually funny.

Book on UF SG absurd


{ Y history is littered with the
charred husks of ideas born
of good intentions that didn't
pan out; neo-conservatism, Skip-It and
"Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2" are
recent examples. To that list of noble
failures add 2002 U. graduate Kenneth
Kerns' debut novel, "Reunion at
University Avenue."
Everything about Kerns' novel is
likeable in theory. The protagonist,
presumably modeled af-
ter the author and former Kent
Student Government out-
standing senator of the
term, pens a successful book
about his -experiences with
the petty ridiculousness of
SG politics and is targeted
by his spiteful peers as a
result. Kerns' novel reiterates points
about the cronyism, narcissism and
all-around absurdity inherent in UF's
playpen for aspiring bureaucrats.
All of which is well and good. Until
you read the thing.
This book exemplifies one of the
few instances when a reader can ac-
tually judge a book by. its cover. No
one should expect Tolstoy when a
stretched, pixilated, Google Images
copy of Stadium Road adorns a book
titled after University Avenue.
Granted, Kerns obviously tackled
this project on his own and handled

both writing and editing. But some-
times it's hard to overlook multiple
sentences with missing verbs. Or when
proper nouns like "Chinese" aren't
capitalized. And even these problems
would be negligible had they not
occurred so frequently as every two
pages.
The book is funny, though. Not
so much funny-ha-ha, but funny-
what-the-hell-is-this. For
Russell instance, lines like, "You
can choke on nuts and
survive," and "Dabnabit!
You boys mean tell me you
messed with my thar crime
scene?!?" provide comic
O relief to what is otherwise a
mostly cliched thriller.
Ultimately, the book's good inten-
tions become mired in a swampy
bog of indecipherable grammar, too
many characters modeled after Kerns'
acquaintances and a mystery that isn't
worth solving.
But if a tale involving booby-
trapped Reitz Union stairs and at-
tempted vehicular manslaughter on
the Plaza of the Americas sounds
interesting, by all means pick up No.

Clothes for less


ooks count, but
clothing is often ex-
pensive. To counteract
this dilemma, never be afraid to
buy used. Gainesville has plen-
ty of consignment shops that
can keep you looking good for
a fraction of the mall's prices.
Many will even buy
your clothes for cash. Kati
You may have to dig
a little, but that can be
part of the fun.
Flashbacks
Recycled Fashions, 211
W. University Ave.,
packs plenty of cloth-
ing into a relatively small space.
Jeans average $8 and shirts
around $6, while shoes and
accessories vary. They'll buy
your stuff until 5 p.m. Monday
through Saturday. Give them a
call at (352) 375-3752.
Plato's Closet offers name-
brand clothing for 70 percent
off the original retail price. A
pair of Abercrombie jeans, for
example, runs about $20. Sell
them your old attire at 3333
SW 34th St. from 10 a.m. to 6
p.m. Monday through Saturday
and 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
Their phone number is (352)
374-4402.
Sandy's Consignment


Boutique, 2906 NW 13th St.,
carries many brands but fo-
cuses on styles from within
the past year. Prices depend on
brand and condition. Furniture,
house wares and accessories
are available, and buyback is
until 6 p.m. Monday through
Saturday. Call (352)
e Burns 372-1226 for more
information.
Urban Thread
is not second-
hand, but it's a
great source for
"IM*r/I deals on new,
more expensive
clothing at outlet prices.
The shop stocks brands like
J. Crew and Anthropologie
that you can't normally get in
Gainesville. And while prices
aren't overly cheap $40 for
a pair of pants, for instance
they're still much lower
than what you'd pay at the
store. Call (352) 384-1134 or
check out 1117 W. University
Ave.
Finally, don't forget
Goodwill Industries, the mecca
of all consignment shops.
Gainesville's Goodwill can be
found at 3520 SW 34th St., or.
call (352) 375-6359.

More than fun and games calendar
ftcalendar


I though I appreciate a little Spring
Break drunken debauchery as much
..as the next student, I'd like to offer a
last-minute warning for what it's worth. Just
call me mom.
As you rush out of town to enjoy any num-
ber of beautiful Spring Break locales, I feel
compelled to warn you of the most threatening
- and successful date rape drug
out there: beer. Maghan
Often delivered in the subtle and
deceptive form of a drinking game,
beer and its heavy-hitting compan-
ions.are key ingredients to the revelry
that constitute a successful Spring
Break experience. I find them stupid, ^
boring and risky..
Drinking with friends is usually a blast,
but beer pong and power hours lead to binge
drinking and increase your odds of becoming a
victim of sexual assault. You've heard it before,
I know. But here are some sobering (couldn't
resist) statistics:


:


Futurama returns on DVD


et your lasers to stun: Futurama
has returned. And it was all due to
- those wonderful people who stay
up late and watch Adult Swim.
These repeat episodes have gar-
nered such huge ratings simi- Seth
lar to those received by "Family
Guy" that the show is being
given a second life. However,
"Futurama" will not be coming
back to TV; it will be reincamat-
ed into four full-length DVDs.
According to David X.
Cohen, developer and writer of the show,
this project is a done deal. Production will
start on the first feature at the end of July
and'continue over the next few years.
The most important fact of this resur-
rection is that a trend is emerging where
underrated shows are getting a second
chance thanks to DVD sales and big rat-


ings during repeat episodes. Even the
cancelled series "Firefly" became a feature
film. I'd like to point out that all the shows
mentioned were all first televised on Fox. It
seems Fox has a way of treating
Entin high-quality shows with such
disrespect that viewers have a
hard time ever noticing these
shows were ever on TV in the
first place. It boggles my mind
how the network gives more
backing behind such low-class
shows as "The War at Home"
and "American Idol" while
it lets another amazing show, "Arrested
Development," go to sleep with the fishes.
A show's destiny truly lies in the hands
of the viewers. I do not see this becoming a
trend, but there is always hope that a show
you once loved has a chance to come back
again.


As many as 80 percent of college students
play drinking games. While both male and fe-
male players consume more alcohol than those
who don't play, women are more likely to drink
more than they normally would.
Women are affected more strongly by alcohol
because they have less water in their bodies and
less body weight. So by trying to prove they can
keep up with the guys, they are re-.
McDowell ally consuming more proportionally.
It gets worse. Data shows that 44
percent of guys list having sex as an
important reason for participating in
a drinking game. One-fifth of men
admitted to taking sexual advan-
* tage of a player after a game, and
19 percent had slept with someone
too drunk to give consent. Finally, in nearly all
instances of forced sexual behavior, one or both
of the people had used drugs or alcohol.
Hopefully the worst thing that happens this
Spring Break will be a painful hangover and
embarrassment.

UF FOOTBALL

Jackson sits, Webb improves stock at UF Pro Day


E THEFORMER UF WIDE
RECEIVER IMPRESSED A
JAGUARS ASSISTANT COACH.

By IAN FISHER
Alligator Staff Writer
ifisher@alligator.org
One wanted to risk it, the other
did not.
Chad Jackson, the former UF
receiver who was electronically
docked at 4.32 seconds in the 40-
yard dash at February's NFL
Scouting Combine, chose not to run
again at Wednesday's UF Pro Day,
held annually for scouts to gauge
interest in prospects.
Former UF comeback Dee Webb
-improved his 4.41 combine 40 time
to a 4.38 Wednesday
According to his agent, Mike
Huyghue, Webb is projected as a
top-50 pick in April's NFL Draft.
"I think he's easily in the top 50,"
Huyghue said. "I think he's going to
be one of the better comers."
Webb was recently investigated
after a gunshot was fired from his
apartment, but no charges were
filed.
He addressed the incident to
teams that inquired, but he didn't
want to discuss the incident further
Wednen ay. Huyghue told reporters
that Webb would not answer any
questions related to the incident.
"Ill just keep that in confidence
between me and [interested teams],"
Webb said. "I really don't want to
talk about it.".
Huyghue described it as a dumb


mistake about which Webb ex-
plained when asked.
Webb still has the weapons,
which are common items for NFL
players, Huyghue said.
"But there won't be anymore
incidents; I can tell you that,"
Huyghue said. "Let's just say lock
and key."
Webb admitted Wednesday that


he had his mind set on jumping to
the NFL before UF's season ended.
."I kind of had my mind made up
as I was going through the season,"
he said.
Webb, who said he felt uncom-
fortable when he ran at the combine,
may have improved his stock with
his time Wednesday.
"I think [running again] says a


lot about the player because teams
come here to see guys compete,"
Huyghue said-."I--think players
forget that sometimes. There's not
a lot of advantage from withholding
your services."
But Jackson and his agent, David
Canter, felt that Jackson had noth-
ing to gain by running again, so
the receiver participated in other

workouts.
"I'd say now he's probably
locked himself into the first round,
barring anything catastrophic,"
Canter said. "I think that teams re-
alize it's very possible that he's the
best receiver in the draft."
Canter also criticized UF coach
Urban Meyer for not using Jackson's
speed better and getting his client
punished too often on short, under-
neath routes.
Jackson's average yards per catch
dwindled from 22.3 in 2004 to 10.2
in 2005.
"I'm glad he's alive, and I'm glad
he won't be running any more 5-
yard curls," Canter said.
Jackson attributed his pro-
jected draft status to his 40 time in
Indianapolis.
"It was very big," Jackson said.
"That's what everybody wanted
me to run. That's what everybody
wanted to see my speed."
Jaguars receivers coach Steve
Walters worked with Jackson on
Wednesday and even broke down
film with the receiver. Waiters was
impressed not only by Jackson's
character and skill, but also his
knowledge of the game.

fensive linemen Mike Degory,Lance

Gators starting five rack up conference accolades


Noa h re chives A ll-S EC First Team h on ors


By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

For a squad whose success hinged on
cohesive team play, members of the No. 16
Gators received some individual recognition
on Wednesday, as a team.
All five of UF's starters were honored in
some form or another when the Southeastern
Conference awards were announced. Power
.forward Joakim Noah led the group as the
only UF player named to the All-SEC First
Team.
"It's a great feeling to be in that posi-
tion," Noah said. "I would have never really
dreamed of it, especially after what happened

last year."
Noah's rise came after a year in which he
averaged just 3.5 points and 2.5 rebounds per
game.
This season, he's averaging a team-high
14.1 points (SEC 10th best) and 6.5 rebounds
(12th best) while shooting 71.6 percent from
the field.
Fellow sophomores, point guard Taurean
Green and power forward Al Horford, were
each named to the second team, while forward
Corey Brewer was named co-Defensive Player
of the Year, along with Louisiana State fresh-
man Tyrus Thomas.
Thomas was also named SEC Freshman of
the Year, becoming the third consecutive LSU
player to win the award.

Thomas' teammate Glen Davis was named

Joining Noah and Davis on the first team
were Alabama's Jermareo Davidson and
Ronald Steele, Vanderbilt's Shan Foster,
Tennessee's Chris Lofton,
Arkansas' Ronnie Brewer
and LSU's Darrel Mitchell.
Davis, Lofton, Ronnie

only unanimous selections.

SOFTBALL

'Bama's VanBrakle baffles UF in three-game sweep


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer

You would think that the
UF softball team remembers
Alabama senior pitcher Stephanie
VanBrakle.
VanBrakle, a two-time All-
Southeastern Conference pitcher
and Southeastern Conference
Tournament MVP last season,
defeated- the Gators twice in a
three-game series last year. This
season was no different as UF (17-9,
0-3 SEC) lost 1-0 to VanBrakle and
the No. 5 Crimson Tide again on
Wednesday, sealing the three-game


series sweep for Alabama.
Though VanBrakle is an intimi-
dating force any time she takes the
mound, she seemed even more so
during the last two days. In her
two starts she struck out a com-
bined 25 UF hitters while giving
up two hits in 14 innings.
UF coach Tim Walton has
preached plate discipline to his hit-
ters during the Gators recent offen-
sive slump, but'when asked how
to keep his hitters from striking
out, he gave a simple response.
"Hopefully, not face Stephanie
VanBrakle," Walton said. "It's a
little bit to do with us, but she's


really good." '
Even without facing VanBrakle,
however, UF's bats must improve

to win in the
SEC.
"Our bats
weren't alive,
and our hitters
need to be more
aggressive,"
senior out-
fielder Lindsey
Cameron said.


"Every loss is always a letdown,
but it shows what you need to
improve on. It's tough because it
is SEC play, but we just move for-


ward and need to get better."
Even with the Gators' lack of
hitting, UF's pitching staff can
be proud of its performance.
Freshman Stacey Nelson pitched
two games and only gave up four
-runs in 12 innings.
"Stacey Nelson has done an ex-
cellent job and she certainly hasn't
pitched like a freshman," Cameron
said. "Our pitchers really showed
some character. They kept us in
the battle, which is a really good
sign."
Walton agrees, but said he still
sees room for improvement from
his young staff.


"[The pitchers] competed well,"
he said. "I think they'd agree with
me that we still came up a little bit
on the short end on the stick. I was
proud of their effort. But in the
end, if we only give up one run, we
need to win those ballgames."
The Gators may be dissatisfied
with the results, but they still re-
spect Alabama.
"We weren't surprised,"
Cameron said. "Alabama is a re-
ally strong team, and they've been
to the [College] World Series. We
knew it was going to bel battle.
It just didn't work out the way we
wanted to."

Gators pitch through adversity to sweep series


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Writer

Inning after inning, the No. 15
Gators pitched and fielded them-
selves into trouble. And inning after
inning, they pitched and fielded
themselves out of it.
UF pitchers stranded 12 UNC-


Greensboro runners in the Gators'
3-1 victory against the Spartans (3-
10) on Wednesday, finishing a two-
game sweep at McKethan Stadium.
Despite 16 Spartans reaching
base, Brian Jeroloman's two-run
single in the first inning proved to
be enough to finish off the Spartans.
For the second consecutive game,
the Gators (11-6) received a strong


performance from a freshman start-
er. Left-hander J.K. LaCoste tossed
five scoreless innings to pick up the
win, allowing UNC-Greensboro to
scatter six hits and two walks.
After battling to be the Sunday
starter for the Gators this season,
LaCoste helped his case with
Wednesday's performance.
"[I had a] couple of rocky in-


UF outfielder Gavin Dickey swings for the fences, knocking a home run in the fourth inning of the Gators'
3-1 win against UNC-Greensboro on Wednesday. Dickey leads the Gators with four homers this season.


nings, but I felt that in the end, I lo-
cated my fastball the way I wanted
to and pitched the way I wanted to,"
LaCoste said. "It helped, but I have
to work on a lot of things to secure
that position."
For the game, the Spartans actu-
ally outhit the Gators 10-8.
The Gators also committed
three errors in the ballgame all
by shortstop Adam Davis to the
Spartans' one.
"Our pitchers are stepping it up
big time," Jeroloman said. "They re-
ally want it more when the bases are
loaded with no outs."
The Gators held a 2-0 lead into
the fourth inning when outfielder
Gavin Dickey blasted his fourth
home run of the season, a solo shot
past the bleacher seats in left-center
field.
The four home runs tie a career-
high for Dickey, who leads the team
in homers this season.
Dickey said that his lead in long-
balls could be most attributed to the
absence of UF slugger Matt LaPorta,
who is still suffering from a strained
oblique muscle.
"When that guy comes back, it is
just a matter of time before he can go
off and just hit any amount," he said.
"I am, by far, not a home run hitter
by any stretch."
UNC-Greensboro scored its lone
run in the seventh inning. After a
sacrifice by Spartans designated hit-
ter Guy Welsh moved runners over
to second and third, catcher Adam
Deleo grounded out to drive in sec-
ond baseman Greg Feltes.
UF reliever Josh Edmondson
pitched three scoreless innings to
pick up his second career save in


as many nights, filling in for injured
closer Darren O'Day, who sat out
a second straight game with back
spasms and should return to the
lineup this weekend.
For the second consecutive night,
the ballgame ended when Deleo
grounded an Edmondson pitch into
a 6-4-3 double play.
"Our pitchers are stepping
it up big time. They re-
ally want it more when the
bases are loaded with no
outs."
Brian Jeroloman
UF catcher

Second baseman Matt Gaski,
whose father, Mike, is the Spartans'
coach, had a pretty uneventful of-
fensive series going 0 for 4 at the
plate with a couple of walks.
He did, however, hurt the
Spartans with his glove in both
games. After making a lunging stop
of a groundball headed for right
field with a one-run lead in game
one on Tuesday, Gaski followed up
with a better play on Wednesday.
With a runner on third and the
Gators leading 3-1 in the seventh
inning, UNC-Greensboro's David
Adams hit a fly ball into shallow
right field. Gaski dove for the ball
and made an over-the-shoulder
catch to quash the Spartans' rally.
"He owed his dad that one," UF
coach Pat McMahon joked.-"His
dad was getting on him pretty good
about that play afterwards."
