Cell phones



lose service

By LISA CURRAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Cingular Wireless customers across Florida went
without cell phone service Wednesday.
Cingular subscribers in Gainesville, Naples,
Odala, Orlando, Polk City, Tampa and Albany, Ga.,
were without service.
The problem resulted after a major fiber optic
cable was cut in the connection that runs between
the Tampa and Orlando switches. The
Local cause of the cut is yet to be determined.
News The cut left 450 towers without service.
The service blackout started at
2:15 a.m., and service resumed at 1:30 p.m., said
Cingular customer service representative Sharonda
Mc Millan.
The Cingular Wireless store on Southwest 34th
Street had customers waiting outside its doors at
10 a.m., said -customer sales representative Tom
Fernandez.
"Cingular sucks," UF sophomore Matt Krueger
said after hearing the news. Krueger signed up with
the wireless network in December and doesn't plan
on renewing after his plan ends.
Within 30 minutes, about 15 disgruntled custom-
ers entered the store and got the same response from
Fernandez: "Call customer service."
Customers reacted with: "How?"
Cingular customers can receive a refund for a
day's worth of service for their inconvenience, but
only if they call customer service.
For more information, call Cingular customer ser-
vice at 1-800-331-0500.


Rep. Harris visits Gainesville


By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Staff Writer
jrichards@alligator.org


Katherine Harris, a candidate for
the U.S. Senate, affirmed strong con-
servative positions on tax relief, border
control and same-sex marriage during
a Gainesville stop in her election bid.
Harris, a Republican U.S. repre-
sentative from southwest Florida,


schmoozed her supporters in a Best
Western ballroom on the outskirts of
the city Wednesday evening.
She will likely face U.S.. Sen. Bill
Nelson in the November election.
Harris, 49, eschewed the po-
dium and microphone, preferring to
walk the floor amid a semicircle of
Republicans.
After her speech, she worked the
room tousling a toddler's curls, sign-


ing a copy of her book and clasping
a supporter's hands to her chest in
prayer.
"I prayed to protect her as she goes
through the campaign just that
she'd have favor," said Mike Minck, a
Gainesville mortgage banker. "There's
a lot of pressure in the political arena,
and I just prayed that she would come

UF bat house addition will keep baby bats from falling


By CARLEE MURPHY
Alligator Contributing Writer

A second unit will be added to UF's bat
house tomorrow in hopes of saving bat pups
from falling to the ground.
More and more pups have been falling out
the house each year because the crevices bats
grip onto have become slippery with the accu-
mulation of body oils. The crevices also have
no grooves that the bats can latch onto.


UF coach Pat
McMahon got
thrown out in the
first inning on
Wednesday night,
but the Gators
baseball team went
on to defeat Florida
State despite two
rain delays. See
story, pg. 28.


Last April, an identical module was
installed to a quarter of the house, said
Cyndi Marks, director of the Florida Bat
Conservancy.
"Last year we did one crevice, and it was
really successful," she said.
The addition will cover another quarter of
the house, underneath the original crevices, so
that if a pup falls it will land in the crevices
instead of on the ground.
The first installation only covered a quar-

Marks said.
The unit willbe installed Thursday at 9 a.m.

bats must have a long drop beneath them so
they won't hit the ground. Once a pup falls

Fair features magician, petition, fair trade coffee


E THE EVENT PROMOTED THE
USE OF FAIR TRADE COFFEE.

By STEPHANIE WOLFSON
Alligator'Contributing Writer

Though magicians are usually
accompanied by furry, white bun-
nies, Arthur Antonio was not. The
student magician had the standard
deck of cards and peculiarly
- a paper coffee cup and a sugar
packet.
These unusual props were more
than tools for a magic performance
- they represented the platform
of Students Making Trade Fair.
The group held a fair on the Reitz
Union North Lawn on Wednesday,
featuring a giant coffee mug, Fair
Trade Certified food and student
entertainment. The organization
received at least 200 signatures for
a petition that proposes Java City
make fair trade espresso products.
The amount of signatures doubled
their intended quota.
Students Making Trade Fair
advocates an increase in fair trade
products on campus, community-
wide education on fair trade, and
an open forum for debate on trade
and international policy. Fair trade
products allow farmers to receive a
fair price for their produce.


"Fair trade isn't about giving
people monetary aid, but it gives
them economic opportunities,
directly to the farmer," said Tina
Steiger, a political science freshman
and spokeswoman for the group.
The House of Flying Cards, the
Hip Hop Collective, Scrabble Kids
and Theatre Strike Force alternated
performance shifts on the Reitz
Union Colonnade to lure students
to the North Lawn to receive fair
trade information, stickers and food.
Refreshments included cheese,
crackers, fruit and coffee.
Dan McCombie, treasurer for the
organization, said fair trade benefits
all parties. The producer gets a bet-
ter profit, and the consumer gets a
better product.
In the Fall, Java City, the coffee
shop in the Reitz Union, will have
Fair Trade Certified and Rainforest
Alliance Certified drip coffee blends
in addition to the single Fair Trade
Certified blend it now carries,
McCombie said. The petition aims
to do the same for espresso.
Directing students to the peti-
tion, Antonio, the president of the
House of Flying Cards magicians
group, is not directly involved with
fair trade.
But he believes both groups have
similar objectives. In performing a
magic act, magicians often encoun-


ter hecklers who question a magic
trick. Similarly, students don't al-
ways see the benefits of fair trade..


"People who don't think it will Antonio said. "They put limitations
work out and who don't buy into around fair trade ideas, magic and
magic or fair trade are too logical," themselves."

Sheriff's Office brings new Breathalyzer to Alachua


By JAMES DAVIS
Alligator Contributing Writer


Alachua County deputies now have a
new tool to help determine if a driver is
under the influence of alcohol.
The Alachua County Sheriff's Office
has two portable Breathalyzer machines,
thanks to a grant from the state that paid


for the units, which cost about $6,000 each.
"They're basically just upgrading the
instruments," ASO Deputy Jayson Levy
said..
Levy said the new units, which were
added in March, aren't any more accurate
than the previous model, and they use the
same process to determine blood-alcohol
levels.


"The breath test is really icing on
the cake."
Jayson Levy
Alachua County Sheriff's Office Deputy

He said the real difference is the packag-
ing:
Weighing only 17 pounds, the new ma-


chines 'weigh considerably less than the
30-pound behemoths they replaced, so ac-
curate blood-alcohol readings can be given
on the spot.
Levy said breath tests are important be-
cause they verify what the arresting officer
saw during the field sobriety test.
"The breath test is really icing on the
cake," Levy said.-

UF Cheer Team places at finals


By KIMBERLY FULSCHER
AlligatorContributing Writer

The UF All-Girl- Competitive
Cheer Team is known for its daring
flips. But it recently gained fame
for its leap into 11th place at the
National Cheerleading Association
College Finals.' '
Two groups from the
Recreational Sports team created in
Fall 2003 competed against other
college teams nationwide earlier this
month in Daytona Beach. About 45
UF students comprise the advanced
Blue Team and intermediate Orange
Team. They practiced three times a
week for three-hour sessions this
season to prepare for the finals.
"Eleventh place is still such
an honor," said Robyn Braun, UF
junior and Blue Team coach. "It's re-
ally amazing in three years how far
we've come. I want to see it continue
growing 10 years down the road.
The team is full of such talented
girls."
According to the team's official
Web site, competitive cheerleading
is a performance sport and the two-
to three-minute routines include
gymnastics, "stunting"- or flipping
cheerleaders into the air dance,
jumps, overall school spirit and ef-
fect. The finals will be aired May 2
on Fox Sports.
"Competition is really difficult
because we have a three-minute
routine, and it's sprinting and lifting
people up in the air for three min-
utes, which doesn't seem like that
long, but it's forever," said Tiffany
Toledo, a sophomore and Orange
Team member.


The cheerleaders are sepa-
rate from the University Athletic
Association cheerleaders, who sup-
port the UP basketball and football
teams.
UF freshman and Blue Team
member Samantha Reho said they
were "definitely not the football
cheerleaders."
"We respect what they do
as the football cheerlead-
ers. We just wanted to
compete. That's our one
goal."
Robyn Braun
Blue Team coach

"We don't do pompoms," she
said.
Braun said the team respects the
UAA.
"We respect what they db as the
football cheerleaders," she said. "We
just wanted to compete. That's our
one goal."
To compete in the College Finals
in Daytona Beach, the team sent in
a videotaped audition for the most
difficult all-girl division. Braun said
the Blue Team decided to compete in
the hardest division so they could be
challenged.
"Everyone worked so hard
throughout this entire year," Braun
said. "We all really wanted to make
it to finals. This whole team is dedi-
cated, and that's what I love about
us. We are all here doing what we
love."
The team's main challenges, said


team President Carlyn Tribble, are
funding and recognition. The cost
to compete in the College Finals
this year was about $15,000, Tribble
said.
The University of Maryland,
which placed first in the finals
competition this year, is the only
school that gives scholarships for
competitive cheerleading. Braun
attributes the school's competitive
edge over other schools to its fund-
ing situation.
The UF team had to fight to be-
come a sport cub in the beginning,
Braun said. The team fundraised ev-
ery cent of its costs and had to prove
to the Department of Recreational
Sports that cub members would be
safe from potential danger.
"We're just another group on
campus that works to promote
school spirit and has the option of
competing against other-colleges to
represent UF," Reho said.
As for future goals, Braun said
she is extremely proud of how far
the team has come in three years and
there are plans to make the team bet-
ter next year. The team participated
in Dance Marathon this year, but
Braun said she wants to see the team
participate in more community ser-
vice next season.
The team wrapped up its season
with a banquet Thursday night at
Gainesville Place. Amid the chaotic
din of talk, gossip and laughter, the
team swapped memories of the
finals and talked of plans for next
season.
"Every year we strive to do bet-
ter than our previous year," Tribble
said. '

Center finds home for windblown baby squirrels


By KATIE KLOTZ
Alligator Contributing Writer


They're cute, cuddly and falling.
from trees all over town.
Each year hundreds of newborn
squirrels fall from their-nests and
die unless their mothers return in
time or concerned persons step in
to save their lives.
The Florida Wildlife Care Center
Inc., a nonprofit volunteer organiza-
tion in Gainesville that rescues and
rehabilitates injured and orphaned
wildlife, works to find foster homes
for the hundreds of baby squirrels
brought to them every year.
Larissa Berkovich, supervisor
and volunteer coordinator for the
center, said the center may receive
more than 500 baby squirrels in
need of homes from July through
October, its busiest months.


"As soon as the wind starts
blowing, all of the skimpy nests
fall," Berkovich said.
Hurricane season is consistently
the center's busiest time of year for
receiving squirrels. After a storm,
it may receive 100 squirrels a day.
Some are so young they haven't
even opened their eyes yet.
For the past 12 years, the center
has held instructional workshops
teaching people how to raise and
care for squirrels.
Typically four hours long, the
workshops are offered two or three
times each summer. The classes
teach "everything from raising a
newborn to building cages and re-
leasing them," Berkovich said.
Participants also learn that,
despite common misconcep-
tions, squirrels rarely carry rabies,
Berkovich said;
Other than the workshops, there


is no prerequisite for taking care of
baby squirrels. All that's required is
"time, energy and to really want to
do it," Berkovich said.
"As soon as the wind starts
blowing, all of the skimpy
nests fall."
Larissa Berkovich
Florida Wildlife Care Center Inc.
supervisor

Volunteers are asked to take two
or more squirrels home with them
because squirrels are very social
animals, and they need to be raised
with others in order to survive in
the wild.
Volunteers typically receive
squirrels when the animals are
about 4 weeks old. Until they reach


9 weeks of age,


the squirrels are


kept in makeshift incubators and
are fed formula every three hours.
After the squirrels reach 9 weeks
old, parenting becomes much less
demanding. They need fewer feed-
ings and are housed in cages rather
than incubators. At 6 months old,
they are released into the wild.
Kathy Tanny, a massage thera-
pist, took the workshop in August
2004 to learn how to properly raise
two baby squirrels she found while
biking in her neighborhood.
"There's a lot to know," Tanny
said about caring for the animals.
After spending so much time
caring for them, Tanny fell in love
with her first litter of baby squirrels.
She even agreed to take four more
babies when the center called her a
few months later.
"This is the second litter we've
had, and I'm sure in the fall we'll
probably call Larissa and say we're


ready for more," Tanny said.
Tanny said the animals are in-
credibly loving and friendly. When
raised by humans, squirrels can
become domesticated just like dogs
and cats.
"When they're babies, they're
very affectionate," Tanny said.
"You're their parent. They want to
sit in your lap."
Judy Bennet, a retired nurse who
has raised squirrels for 12 years,
also learned how attached the baby
squirrels can become to the people
who raise them.
Mr. Tubs, a squirrel Bennet
raised and released, had an espe-
cially hard time separating from
her.
"When I released him in my
yard, he was so bonded to me that
he would come to my windowsill
and look into the house," Bennet
said.

Roger Natzke, a dairy specialist in the
UF agriculture college, said he would listen
to Harris' speech with specific concern for
her stance on immigration.
"My guess is that 85 percent of the peo-
ple milking cows in the state of Florida are
Hispanic workers," Natzke said.
But Harris emphasized the need for strict
immigration laws and the need to "protect
our borders."
She criticized her opponent, Nelson, for
opposing tax relief and for calling himself a


moderate Democrat.
S"How can the liberals call him a mod-
erate when his ratings consistently show
him in the liberal category?" she said.

record.

up because they aren't capable of taking
off from the ground, Marks said.
On the ground, bats are good at crawl-
holding up the bat house, but because
predator guards were installed on the
poles to keep other creatures from climb-
ing up, the pups could not climb the entire
length of the poles. Bats emerging at night
to hunt for insects are also pushing pups
out accidentally, Marks said.
The addition is being built now be-
cause mother bats deliver their pups the
first two weeks of June, and the pups
begin to take their first flights in five to six


weeks, Marks said. Bats only deliver one
pup each year.
After the addition was installed last
year, 50 percent fewer pups fell out of that
section, according to statistics compiled
by Deborah Cottrell, a veterinarian at

Since 1998, Cottrell has been nursing
fallen pups back to health. She also de-

pups back into the house and removed
the predator guard from the poles so pups
could climb them.
Cottrell believes the addition will only
relieve the problem.temporarily

Steadfast

Defense secretary

needs to go
Amid all the latest staff shake-ups, hirings and firings
at the White House, one figure, against all odds, has
remained.
Donald Rumsfeld.
With the president's steadily declining poll numbers, as
well as all the recent calls from retired generals for the defense
secretary's resignation, we figured Rumsfeld would be out for
sure. But President Bush isn't one to be cowed by mere public
opinion.
It appears that we had underestimated Bush's affection for
Rummy.
Of course, this isn't the first time Rumsfeld has miraculously
survived his seemingly imminent political demise.
First there was the bungled Iraqi invasion, for which he dis-
regarded Gen. Tommy Franks's call for 400,000 troops to be sent
to Iraq. Only 140,000 actually went, and the results have been
absolutely disastrous.
For that alone, he probably should've gotten the axe. But he
weathered that storm just as surely as he would weather the
many more to come.
There was Abu Ghraib. There was Guantanamo Bay. Some
even thought Rumsfeld was going to get dumped after it was
revealed that he used a signature machine to sign military con-
dolence letters.
But no. Rumsfeld has gone on to become the third-lon-
gest-serving defense secretary in history, behind only Robert
McNamara and Caspar Weinberger. We're really starting to
wonder just how many political lives he has left.
And yet, even though he's survived, he hasn't come away
unscathed.
"An invisible line has been crossed, and the decline in
17frii lr;'u n 'e" has now beg.n," said Lexington Institute
defense analystoren ompso. t s not nuu
this story ends he won't be effective in office. He's losing his
ability to execute his agenda."
So maybe Rumsfeld's days are numbered after all.
We're not going to pretend that getting Rumsfeld out of of-
fice will solve all of our military ills. The problems go all the
way to the top, and we don't expect real change until at least
2008.
But in the meantime, some new blood couldn't hurt.
It's time for Rumsfeld to go.



Georgia law not racist


O n Monday, Georgia
ov. Sonny Perdue
signed into law leg-
islation that prevents illegal
immigrants from taking ad-
vantage of social services.
The measure has been
hailed by many as being
among the toughest laws
against illegal immigration
currently on the books.
Mexican presidential
spokesman Ruben Aguilar
has called the law "discrimi-
natory" against Mexicans.
Sara Gonzalez, president
of the Georgia Hispanic
Chamber of Commerce,
called it "punitive."


But we can't understand
how it could be construed
as either. While we support
measures to eventually grant
illegal immigrants a legal sta-
tus in the U.S., the simple fact
is that if a state's population
doesn't want to provide ser-
vices to people who are in that
state illegally, they shouldn't
have to.
People calling for immi-
gration reform are often ac-
cused of racism and bigotry,
and occasionally the charge is
justified. But not always.
In the heated debate over
immigration, a little more dis-
cretion could go a long way.

Letters to the Eir
Tolerance requirements are hypocritical
This is in response to Lara Loewenstein's
article, "Tolerance requirements don't infringe
on people's rights." Consider the tolerance re-
quirements here at UF. The Student Activities
Center only prefers that student organizations
require tolerance of differing sexual orienta-
tions to be stipulated in their constitutions.,
However, it is possible for a student organi-
zation to lose funding for not following this
rule. In Loewenstein's opinion, it is OK for
Christians to call homosexuality a sin. I don't
see why that matters when organizations are
punished if they expect their leaders to live
those standards. That isn't freedom-loving
regulation. It's hypocritical regulation. We
might as well be consistent and ban freedom
of speech on campus.
Personally, I'd prefer if universities would
stop trying to legislate issues of morality and
be more tolerant of views that contradict the
mainstream. I don't remember giving any uni-
versity the power to decide what's right and
what's wrong.

U.S. shouldn't fund an Israeli occupation
Isn't it strange that David Drescher de-
cided not to mention the $15,139,178 the U.S.
government gives to the Israeli government
and military each day? This figure is the result
of the Washington Report on Middle East
Affairs, which was published in 1997. In con-
trast, Palestinian nongovernmental organiza-
tions were given $232,290 a day in 2004 by the
U.S. Agency for International Development. It


is safe to guess that the Israeli numbers have
not decreased and that the Palestinian num-
bers have definitely not increased.
Terrorism is not an act that is exclusively
carried out by religious fundamentalist
groups or any other nongovernment, nonof-
ficial group. Just as the horrendous bomb-
ing in Tel Aviv the other day by a member of
Islamic jihad is an extreme act of cowardice
that I condemn, so is the bulldozings of 4,170
Palestinian homes and the 3,863 killings of
Palestinians since September 2000, largely
by the Israeli Defense Forces. I do not agree
with the response of a Hamas official that the
Monday bombing was legitimate it was
not. But such cowardly attacks are predictable
given the climate of conflict that exists in Israel
and the occupied territories. When the U.S.
provides an enormous amount of military
aid to Israel more than any other country
- and Israel uses this aid to continue an il-
legal occupation and general repression of the
Palestinian people, then the U.S. has a respon-
sibility to bear regarding the Israel-Palestine
conflict. According to a 2002 Associated Press
report citing statistics from the Congressional
Research Service, Washington currently gives
Israel about $3 billion a year, two-thirds of it in
military grants.
I think what Drescher should realize is that
as long as the U.S. continues to provide the
Israeli government an amount of aid grossly
disproportionate to the amount it provides
Palestinian NGOs, the IDF will continue to
bulldoze people's houses and kill Palestinian
civilians, and Palestinian fundamentalist
groups will respond with bombings. The U.S.
should stop all aid to an Israeli government
that continues to defy international law by
illegally occupying the territories and should


promote talks between Hamas and the Israeli
government to work toward peace.
James Pestrak
UFstaff



Tolerance policies counter to free speech
This is regarding Lara Loewenstein's col-
umn, "Tolerance requirements don't infringe
on people's rights," in which she wrote that
the Georgia Institute of Technology tolerance
policy is defining of, but not conducive to, free
speech. She wrote, "A tolerance policy does
not prevent a conservative Christian from
speaking up and saying that he or she believes
homosexuality is a sin. ... There is a huge dif-
ference between the statement I believe all ho-
mosexuals are sinners' and 'You are a sinner,
and you are going to hell.'"
On the contrary. If the same person explains
in one sentence that they believe homosexuals
are sinners and in another sentence that all
who have sinned go to hell, a Venn diagram
would demonstrate that the Christian has
nearly labeled homosexuals as sinners and as
a subset of a larger group needing redemption.
This person would thus be in violation of the
ridiculous and offensive Georgia Tech policy.
Loewenstein cannot have it both ways
if she wants to defend a Christian's right to
speak freely of eternity in hell without stat-
ing that anyone needs redemption. Not to
mention that if Loewenstein or a homosexual
doesn'tbelieve in a literal hell, they should ob-
viously not be offended if told they are on the
way to a place they do not believe exists!
The last time I checked, the First
Amendment guarantees my right to warn
sinners of hell as surely as it guarantees their


right to offer me an oft-heard, three-word
travel voucher to visit them there.

Administration is too inept to handle Iran
Reports in the media that Iran is enriching
uranium are certainly alarming. Given Iran's
history, the American public should demand
decisive action to eliminate the threat. But
this is the same inept administration that
created the Iraqi debacle, botched hurricane
relief along the Gulf Coast and still hasn't
caught Osama bin Laden. It seems to me that
the greater threat to Americans would come
from relying on these people to handle the
Iran threat.
Rather than exulting at the prospect of a
big story, perhaps the media should remember
their complicity in the Iraqi debacle. The lead-
ership and guidance provided by the media
are too important to be used by an adminis-
tration whose only true skill is misleading the
American public. And where is Congress? Is
there no one in Congress who has the courage
to stand up to this administration? This is not
a matter of ideology or conservative versus
liberal. This is about competence to lead.
With several years before Iran is likely to
actually have nuclear weapons, do we re-
ally want to rush into another ill-considered,
ill-planned disaster? It is time for the media,
Congress and the American public to say,
"Whoa, cowboy!" We need this cowboy and
his administration to ride off quietly into the
sunset.

Take note: mU musician an inspiration

T3 y 2ent Russell


This
Spring,
five guys
and an
W. orange
ball wres-
tled the limelight from UF's
pigskin hegemony and showed
the nation that there's more to
Gainesville than Saturda\ at
The Swamp.
Now, one woman :ind her
clarinet could do the same for
the School of Music.
Kira Bokalders, a 22-year-old
with gunmetal eyes and a smile
bright as the bathroom light at
4 a.m., graduates this semester.
And trailing her like the D notes
she's tirelessly lapped against
the MNu;:i Building's wall? w-ill
be the notion that UF is more
than a soggy spot in Central
Florida for engineers.
Though being voted the
School of Music's most out-
standing student, earning
summa cum laude honors and
winning multiple scholarships
is a little harder than blowing
into a woodwind, Kira insists
that she's done nothing more
than all the other music majors.
She still eats a banana to
calm her nerves before a per-
formance, and she still bla-st
hip-hop in her car.
But Kira's musical gift be-
came apparent irnmediatel\ af-


ter she joined her middle school
band.
"I just sort of fell into this,"
she said, admitting that she
originally joined the band be-
cause her friends were doing it.
The lines to try out the oboe,
flute and saxophone were all
too long, so Kira picked up a
clarinet.
She hasn't let go.
'W'he n vou imagine what
kind of students you would
like to teach, they're like Kira
Bokalders," said Mitchell Estrin,
Kira's applied music professor.
"She'll bring future prestige and
notoriety to our school."
Before coming to UF to tcac:h
in 1999, E-trrm had played
clarinet with the New York
Philharmonic Orchesira tor h\t .
decade-. honing his crait under
the renowned American conm-
poser Leonard Bernstein.
Through his extensive one-
on-one time with Kira, though,
Estrin quickly discovered that
he didn't know everything
about the clarinet.
"I've learned from her,"
Estrin said. "It's been not only
a joy, but an honor to have
worked with her."
Normally, Estrin scours high
school aiuditoriumr- across the
country for a whiff of n potential

coach that ma.be the ne,.r one

will catapult the program into
greatness.
"It's a small circle," Estrin
said of clarinet players. "They're
kind of like quarterbacks. You
hear about the ones who can re-
ally throw the ball."
And Kira had the proverbial
cannon. But it iwa-- he that ,:anme
to him during a clarinet summit
at UF when she was a junior at
J.P. Taravella High School in
Coral Springs.
Ivy League schools courted
Kira, but -he enrolled L1 a small
unheralded muI-i program
tucked i\ thin a mirn-tr T.us tjte
-.:hool to study with EstTLn
"You can get lost in the
cro id at the bigger ischooi.'l
she said.
Like most students, Kira has
tudiced hard during her tenure
at UF However, book smarts
alone won't earn her a spot in
a professional orchestra her
ultimate goal.
"The common misconception
is, 'Man, you're a music major?
That must be so easy and fun!'"
Kira said with a smirk.
Kira's day doesn't really
begin until class rendS at noon
Then she works in the band
library and as a private cl.armet
tutor until it's time to NIUB t, '

am in the lMusti Buildinr: By
the time she stumbles out from

dead.
Kira needed to work hard
outside of school so she could
afford her tho.'usand-dollar clar-
inets, and she needed to work
hard inside so she could earn
a spot Ln a graduate program
she said.
"I don't party. I can't. I don't
have time," she said.
Not that it bothers her.
That she's been able to wake
up in the morning only to
exhaust herself creating some-

worth it, she said.
Yet her undergraduate years
aren't really winding down -
they're coming to a crescendo.
In between preparing for
Sunday's senior recital, she's
spent time and money this
past semester ricocheting be-
tween several graduate music
programs around the country,
"auditioning in closed rooms
for crusty old men" and hoping
that they'll see the human being
that's attached to the mouth-
piece.
"In my own small way,
through auditions, I'm trying
to give props to UF," she said.
Most of the music directors she


auditions for aren't familiar
with UF as a music school.
But when she's done au-
ditioning, they want to know
more.
On Saturday, Estrin received
a call from a professor at the
College-Conservatory of Music
at the University of Cincinnati.
He was desperate to know if
Estrin's young prospect with
the gold-flecked auburn hair
was committing.
She was.
"People need to
realize we have su-
perstars in mu-
sic, too," Estrin
said.

surements." When students apply to
UF, sack skills weren't ranked beside
teamwork and attention to detail.
Students are perhaps more open
than ever about what's going on
behind cosed doors (see "paint
your orgasm" or the.rumor behind
a certain fraternity's color-happy
lion). It would seem that tracking
down specifics would be as easy as
getting a bag of free condoms from
the Student Health Care Center. But
not so fast. .
While students might be quick
to offer the details of their noctur-
nal adventures, information on
sexual health practices on campus
is simiarly anecdotal. Not only is
the amount of sex our classmates are
having unknown, but gaining access
to said data is a well-kept secret.
So, just where do students turn
to gain their ever-increasing body
of knowledge? And how do they
compare to other college campuses?
And, perhaps most importantly, are
you normal?
"I think students learn from
their friends and' their parents,"


said Stephanie Davis, a sophomore
majoring in athletic training. Davis
is taking ANT2301, more commonly
known as Human Sexuality and
Culture.
And then there's the Intefnet. A
Google search for "sex" provides
,23 million results, and
narrowing your search Maghal
down to "sex education"
leaves 403,000 hits to sort
through.
' "I think students today
are savvy enough to use i
the Internet to get infor-
mation on sexual health,"
said Vladimir Oge, sexual
health education specialist at the
SHCC. But he is also aware that
finding correct information can be
a challenge.
As the Interim Director of
GatorWell Health Promotion
Services, Oge encourages students
to visit the center's Web site when
looking for reliable information. The
GatorWell site, www.shcc.ufl.edu/
gatorwell, offers students a link to
www.mystudentbody.com, a paid
service that provides health infor-
mation targeted toward college
students.
"It's a challenge to find a site that
provides accurate information,"
said Sarah Lord, director of college
health programs at MyStudentBody.
"A lot of available sites are outdated


or not entirely accurate."
She describes MyStudentBody
as an "evidence-based prevention/
intervention program," which of-
fers basic sexual health information
- like what a Pap smear actu-
ally tests and promotes safer sex.
Although the site tailors
McDowell its information to each
user's profile, the data
collected from students
is a highly guarded
secret.
Lord does say that
G more than 100 schools
DU = use MyStudentBody
and that it reaches
400,000 to 500,000 students.
GatorWell has tried to get an
idea of student's sexual lives. In
the Spring of 2004, it adminis-
tered the National College Health
Assessment, but according to Oge,
the low response rate provided re-
sults that are representative of the


J ic((d~f~tih;


student body and are not compa-
rable to the previous NCHA study
in 2001.
He also stresses that it's hard to
determine the specific number of
Sexually Transmitted Infection cases
at UF, as those seen at the SHCC
are not including students who are
seen at other locations, like Planned
Parenthood.
Aimee Collins-Mandeville, a
freshman majoring in women's stud-
ies, worked at Planned Parenthood
in her hometown of Palm Beach
Gardens in addition to volunteering
at women's clinics. She is also tak-
ing ANT2301, but said that despite
coming into the class with a "good
amount of knowledge" on the topic,
she has learned a few things.
According to Collins-Mandeville,
high school sex-ed focused on STI
prevention rather than teaching stu-
dents more about'human sexuality
in general.
UF's action: By the Numbers*

However, Collins-Mandeville
disagrees with Davis when it comes
to requiring a class like Human
Sexuality, because she feels that the
class might make students uncom-
fortable. Even students in her class
don't like to speak up.
But enough about STIs, even
though the statistics can make even
the most careful student nervous.
What students like Ryan O'Mara
really want to know is, who is sleep-
ing with whom, and how much?
For the health science educa-
tion major's senior thesis, O'Mara
created a sexual behavior study for
basic statistics of sexual behavior of
UF undergraduate students.
Although students aren't yet
required to take a course like that
involving alcohol consumption,
they might be able to get an idea
of just how "safe" their sex life is
- and maybe just how normal they
really are.

"Sleeper" wakes Hipp


By KATIE BURNS
Avenue Writer

In a post-Sept. 11 culture of terror,
the Hippodrome State Theatre's latest
play dares to make a satiric mockery
of life, lust and hysteria in the modem
world.
"The Sleeper," which premiered
Friday, is a sexy comedy with timely
political undercurrents and is unafraid
to poke fun at society's all-encompass-
ing fear and mistrust.
The story centers on Gretchen,
played by Laura Rohner, a bouncy
housewife stuck in a loveless mar-
riage to her foul-mouthed, workaholic
husband.
Trapped in her own paranoid world
of anthrax seminars and terrorist-alert
days, Gretchen becomes powerfully
drawn to Matthew, her son's math tu-
tor, despite the fact that the two hold
vastly different political viewpoints.
Her passion for Matthew, played
by Bryant Smith, leads Gretchen to an
awakening from her own disillusion-


ment. But when a sequence of suspi-
cious events overtakes her, Gretchen
begins to suspect Matthew is not quite
what he appears to be.
The plot unfolds into a mystery
thriller with a twisted ending, leaving
the character monologues to sort out
the pieces.
This raunchy satire manages to
combine comedy with a pertinent so-
cial message. Actors often address the
audience directly, making those in the
crowd feel like a part of the plot.
Despite the plot's seriousness, this
play is a comedy in the end. The witty
story line offers a worthwhile escape
from reality, yet remains dose enough
to it to remain relevant. -
"The Sleeper," written by Catherine
Butterfield, debuted in 2004 and recent-
ly won the Kaufman & Hart Award for
Best New American Comedy. The
Hippodrome is only the second theater
in the country to produce it.
The show runs everyday until May
7. Student prices start at $12. For tick-
et, call the box office at (352) 375-4477.

As if just being in New Jersey wasn't bad

Eventually, they made it to Little Rock.
There they discovered lead guitarist Collins

and his innate ability to hold his liquor.
With the lineup complete, the Princes wrote
and released two albums, following both

"I think this record was our attempt to peel
away our defenses," he said. "Instead of try-
ing to present ourselves as some larger-than-

vulnerable, humanizing statement, But with
badass guitar solos, of course."

Guide makes ordering easy


Tips to beat bad guys


By WILL AFFORD
Avenue Writer

In a bold move to escape the cold realities
of New England, four men headed south to
create Gainesville's No. 1 bar and restaurant
guide.
Chompmenus.com is a free, online menu
guide where customers can It's just easier
browse restaurants by catego- one location. I
ries and place orders online.
The Web site was started just want to or
in Fall 2005 by four former the time, that'
Pennsylvania State University Joe K(
students who ran a similar Reitz Union m
Web site in Pennsylvania,
Lionmenus.com.
The four alumni own YNot
Advertising, a Pennslyvania-
based company, and bought the -Web sites
Gatormenu.com and Gatorwaiter.com to pro-
duce Chompmenus in Summer 2005.
Unlike Gatorfood.com, a comparable online
delivery service, Chompmenus has no service
charges though many restaurants set a mini-
mum purchase amount.
What Chompenus provides to restaurants
is targeted advertising.
"We give ways for restaurants and bars to
distinguish themselves from their competi-
tion," said partner Chris Jeffery.
What Chompmenus provides to students is
"One location for them to get everything for


free," Jeffery said.
The owners also work with restaurants
to negotiate exclusive online specials, such
as five-five-five deals, and restaurant credit
to encourage people to continuously use the
service.
"It's better than just calling because then
you don't get anything back," Jeffery said.
r to look in Joe Kelly, Webmaster for the

s ridiculous. "It's just easier to look in one
elly location," Kelly said. "It's not like
iebmaster I just want to order pizza all the
time, that's ridiculous."
One problem with online order-
ing is the chance the restaurant
won't receive an order; however,
Chompmenus has not had problems with this.
"There is no fail," Jeffery said. "We wouldn't
have gotten where we are if our technology
didn't work."
Businesses are quickly realizing the benefits
of this type of advertising.
"It's more convenient for everyone,"
Geyzer Salgabo, a manager for Fritanga Latin
Grill, said.
The owners of YNot Advertising, avid
football fans sick of snowy Pennsylvania, are
happy to be in Gainesville.
"Since we got down here we're in love with
the Gator atmosphere," Jeffery said.


T he fighting genre of games
has inhaled quarters and
Simparted blisters since Data
East's "Karate Champ" in
1984. Throughout its storied history,
the fighting genre has included com-
batants ranging from sumo wrestlers,
Native Americans, a guy named Dr.
Baldhead and a tree. Though the
fighting-game universe is dogged
with diverse characters,
here are two you certainly Kent
wouldn't want to go toe-
to-toe with.
Resident Assistant:
He should be considered
a worthy, if not beguil-
ing, adversary. Though
the RA seemingly lacks h
brute force or bearable
social temperament, he is not to be
underestimated. Master of decep-
tion, the RA lunges with passive
aggression and deflects blows
with the Invisible Shield of Self-
Importance. Beware his meticu-

Finishing Move: the Door Knock

I


tion matched only by its simplicity.
When the RA's opponents are drunk
off of perceived covert victory and
the beer Virgil bought them, the
RA strikes. With one to three stem
knocks on the door, the RA renders
his adversaries senseless. Only able
to jockey for position under the bed
or indefinitely shift glances from
the locked door to the pile of Olde
English bottles on the
lussell carpet, challengers are
doomed.
Guy Who Takes Beer
Pong Way Too Seriously
This vile antagonist
cannot be defeated.
He must be outlasted.
Frequently traveling in
pairs, the GWTBPWTS
finds strength in numbers. But once
separated from the empowering
white hats and hastily rolled sleeves
of their kin, the GWTBPWTS shriv-
els into a husk of clumsy head nods
and pretended text-message-check-
ing. Avoid the Sonic "Bro!" Attack,
GHB Sleeper Hold and Flying
Homophobia Arm Bar.

ated and asleep in the bathtub for
any finishing move.

New ad tactics deceive c e n d r


By LAUREN RUFF
Avenue Contributing Writer

In the age of the Internet and pop-up
blockers, marketers are finding new and more
deceptive ways of invading your bandwidth
with their latest swag Ashleeturfing.
Ashleeturfing, when paid marketers pose
as regular people and subtly recommend a
product, is on the rise in online venues.
"Historically, word of mouth has been
between consumers, but now it's exploded

read and exchange product Compani

The message was found
verbatim on more than 20 different forums.
Originally, marketers never attempted to
disguise the messages as originating from
a marketer. Instead, blatant advertisements
would be posted, said Scott Meldrum,
president and founder of the marketing firm
HypeCouncil.
"We typically would [post] service an-
nouncement-type messages in forums and,
as such, there wasn't any need to stick
around to answer questions or to interact
with the community," Meldrum said.
"Today, these types of messages are ig-
nored; flamed or removed," he said. "That's
where the outright deceptive practice of us-
ing established profiles comes in."

about Ashleeturfing and said doesn't like
when people make friends with marketers

"If it was me, I'd be turned off to buying
any products from that company," Reno
said.
The ethical nature of Ashleeturfing has
spawned a fervent debate in the marketing
community.
"For it to be ethical, people believe that

JugJJlinj Act


Andrea Morales / Alligator Staff
Seniors Jason Ehrenman and Matt Hiemenz have kept the juggling club go-
ing since they established it on campus two years ago.


By JOE HUNTER
Avenue Writer

They're lessons in Newtonian
physics that fit in the palm of
your hand. Or on your shoulder.
Or your elbow.
Objects in Motion more
commonly, though unofficially,
called the Juggling Club at UF
- uses smooth balls to demon-
strate juggling.
"I love doing this to little
children," said Jason Ehrenman,
club president, in reference to
moving the acrylic ball smooth-
ly along his hands and arms. "It
really confuses them."
Club co-presidents Matthew
Hiemenz and Jason Ehrenman,
both seniors at UF, perform
at Gator Nights about once a
month under the troupe name
Spherocity.
There are two main types of
juggling: toss, where the balls
leave contact with the juggler,
and contact, where objects
remain in contact with the jug-
gler.
"The two require very dif-
ferent types of coordination,"
Hiemenz said. "Toss juggling
requires good hand-eye coordi-
nation. Contact juggling doesn't
require looking at all."
Whereas toss juggling can be
done with just about anything,
contact juggling is usually done
with very hard, clear acrylic
balls about half an inch larger
than billiard balls. They are very
smooth and are sometimes used
as ball bearings in industrial
machinery, Hiemenz said.
Because balls are a solid


color, and usually transparent,
motions look fluid and smooth.
The result is a hypnotic effect on
spectators, Hiemenz said.
"Any time I can mesmerize
someone, I feel like I've accom-
plished something," club mem-
ber Jacob Spitz explained;
For toss juggling beginners,
Hiemenz recommended prac-
ticing in front of a wall to keep
from walking forward as one
practices.
There are no dues required
for the club, but long-term
members are encouraged to
buy their own equipment. The
acrylic balls cost
about $25 each, "You definitely

"You defi- when you ro
nitely find bones over them at
you didn't bright

them and they
turn bright red,"
Hiemenz said.
Especially when first learn-
ing contact juggling, jugglers
learn to work with their own
bodies quickly, Ehrenman said.
"You have to learn your own
anatomy," he said. "We all have
our horror stories."
And these horror stories are
not confined to the juggler.
"Our friend that used to
work Gator Nights was trying
to learn the 'Windshield Wiper,'
and he hurled the ball forward
and hit someone square in the
eyes," he said.
For this reason, it is recom-
mended that people attending

club meetings refrain from
wearing open-toed shoes,
Hiemenz said.
Members have become in-
volved in the club in a variety
of ways, but one main way the
club gets exposure is through
demonstrations.
"I was walking by the room
during a meeting and I saw
stuff moving," club member
David Groover said. "Then a
bunch of people came out and
asked if I wanted to learn jug-
gling."
Club member Heather Denk
said she has trouble explain-

an acrylic "The way I
d they turn usually describe
ed." it to people is,
'Have you seen
iemenz Labyrinth?' No?
'under Never mind,
then,'" she said.
When showing
their skills off, club members
are used to getting reactions
of intrigue, Hiemenz said.
Spectators tend to think there
is a trick involved in contact
juggling because it looks so
smooth, but the only trick is
learning the hand movements,
he said.
Another common point of
interest for onlookers is what
the ball is made of.
"Someone actually asked
me if it was made of water,"
Ehrenman said. "Usually when
people ask that now, we just
say it's made of dreams or, if
it's the black ball, nightmares."

Gators gain momentum with shutout against UCF


UF ace Nelson pitched complete game


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer

On Monday, UF coach Tim
Walton said he wanted to limit
the opportunities for negative
situations for freshman pitcher
Stac4dy Nelson.
There was nothing negative
-about Nelson's performance
Wednesday.
She pitched a complete-game
shutout as No. 24 UF (34-18, 12-9
Southeastern Conference) won 3-


0 at Central Florida.
Walton said he was pleased
with the performance of his
freshman.
"She had good stuff," he said.
"She got ahead of batters and
gave up a couple singles, but all
in all, she didn't walk anybody
and did a good job pitching."
Nelson also is proud of her
perforrLance and feels her con-
fidence is growing, which is
exactly what needs to happen
for the UF ace with her team just


three weeks away from the SEC
Tournament.
"It definitely felt good to get
back in the groove, to get some
wins on our side
/- before Kentucky
Gators [this weekend],"
Softball Nelson said. "I
S didn't have my
best stuff, but I
felt I had a good
mentality.
"[The hitting] definitely gave
me some time to rest and gave


me a cushion when I was out
there on the mound."
While Nelson kept the Golden
Knights at bay, it was junior out-
fielder Lacy Howard that was
largely responsible for the Gators
at the plate.
In the top of the third, Howard
singled, scoring senior Kristen
Butler and junior Melissa Zick.
Later, Howard was able to
scamper home after an error in
the UCF outfield.
"It's always good to have
all aspects of the game come
together and mold together,"
Howard said. "When we get


all components working well is
when we're our best. That's what
we strive.for at this point in the
season."
Heading into Wednesday
night, Walton hoped for a strong
defensive performance.
After the Gators shut out UCF,
the coaches wish list grew a little
shorter.
"We played good defense, and
that's the name of the game,"
Walton said. "You have to do a
good job limiting opponents to
just three outs and fight through
adversity, and we did that to-
night."

BASEBALL, from page 28

three innings for the Gators allow-
ing one run on one hit, while walk-
ing four batters. Josh Edmondson
surrendered two earned runs in 1.2
innings, but picked up the win in
relief.
It was LaCoste's first start since
taking the loss in a 21-4 drubbing
at the hands of South Carolina on
March 26.
Baseball And it was
UF 8 the second time
Florida State 3 in less than
two weeks that
McMahon has
been thrown out of a game.
He was tossed in the seventh
inning in a game against Kentucky
on A ril 8.
'Coach Mac is a guy that is go-
ing to go to bat for his players,"
Dickey said. "You've got to love
that about him."
Now, the Gators have won two
straight games by a combined
score of 23-7.
"Any win at this point in the
season is a momentum builder,"
LaPorta said.


STREAKS SNAPPED: A combina-
tion of UF pitchers held FSU cen-
terfielder Shane Robinson hitless,
ending his 26-game hitting streak
Wednesday night.
While UF second baseman
Adam Davis reached base three
times and scored twice, he also
failed to record a base hit, bringing
his hitting streak to an end at nine
games.
Dickey, however, extended his
team-leading hitting streak to 10
games.

SO MUCH FOR CONSISTENCY: Of
UF's seven regular players who
returned from last year's lineup,
all seven are hitting for a lower
batting average than they did last
season.
Coming into Wednesday night's
game, the player closest to match-
ing last season's numbers was
Adam Davis, who was hitting
17 points lower than last year's
output.
Three players, first baseman
Matt LaPorta, infielder Brandon
McArthur and designated hitter
Stephen Barton, were hitting more
than 70 points behind last year's
pace.


CASEY, from page 28


behind first base, and the call looked fine to
me. McMahon didn't see things my way and
walked onto the field to make sure Manders
was certain of the call. I've seen this before.
McMahon is usually cordial when "arguing"
with an umpire.
I've seen and heard McMahon verbally as-
sault the ump to the tune of: "You're a good
umpire, and I know that you wouldn't try to
intentionally limit any of these student-ath-
letes. I just wanted to let you know that I dis-
agree with the call you just made, and I know
that you'll do better the next time."
There's a better chance that SpongeBob
SquarePants would drop an f-bomb or any
other expletive. McMahon keeps it clean. He
didn't get ejected last season, despite a fiery
display of emotion during the College World
Series. Manders didn't even give McMahon
enough time to compliment his mustache and
ejected the UF coach after about 15 seconds.
In typical UF baseball fashion, the offense
erupted as soon as McMahon was tossed.
Gavin Dickey hit a two-run homer to-
wards the famous FSU circus tent. Bryson
Barber looked like Tony Gwynn as he stroked
a double. Wednesday night was a follow-up
performance for a UF offense that was fit-


tingly resurrected on Easter Sunday, when
the Gators pounded Tennessee 15-4.
The last time McMahon was ejected, the
Gators went on to defeat Kentucky 6-4. In the
CWS, a McMahon tirade sparked a comeback
that would be the biggest win of the season.
Not even FSU's resident cowgirl-tumed-
Playboy model, Jenn Sterger, could distract
UF after lengthy weather delays.
With 15 conference games remaining in the
season, McMahon can still scare the Gators
out of last place and into the Southeastern
Conference Tournament. The Gators will host
three SEC teams with 6-9 records in confer-
ence play Auburn, Georgia and LSU. The
Gators will travel to face Mississippi State (7-
7) and Alabama (10-5).
If the Gators can win eight of those 15
games, the SEC Tournament should be
waiting for them on the horizon. And qual-
ity wins against Miami, Florida State and
Arkansas will earn UF a place in the NCAA
Tournament. Playing well in the postseason
could salvage a disappointing regular season,
and right now, the Gators are one of the most
dangerous teams in the nation.
The Gators have shown that they can re-
main focused while an entire stadium roots
against them. If all else fails, McMahon can
jump-start UF with another non-confronta-
tion.

Saint Tholen

Santa Fe coach to hang it up after 22 years


By RYAN ACQUAVITA
Alligator Writer

For 36 years, Harry Tholen has watched his players grow.
For 36 years, he's watched them develop not only as ball
players but as human beings as well.
And after 36 years, Harry Tholen, the Santa Fe baseball
coach who turns 63 this month will finally hang up his cleats.
Harry Tholen will be coaching his last game Saturday at 1
p.m: as the Saints host St. John's River Community College at
home.
"I just felt it's the right time," Tholen said. "I've been very
fortunate to work with a lot of great people, a lot of outstanding
players and great assistant coaches. But its time."
SFCC athletics director Jim Keites said that Tholen has set
the standard by which all coaches should be measured.
"He not only is a great communicator and teacher of the
game, but he is an honorable man that has served as a great
ambassador for the college and mentor for many young men,"
Keites said.
Tholen first came to Santa Fe in 1982 as the program's first
head coach and has served in that capacity for all but three
years, from 1986 to 1989.
"This game requires a lot of energy to work with the play-
ers, and I am still in good health," Tholen said. "I just don't
have what I used to have, and I realize that. So I think it's a
good time to step down."
Tholen said he first started pondering retirement when he
turned 60.
"It's not been a continuous process for three years, but it's
something that I've talked about with my family," Tholen said.
"[Since then] I've taken it year to year."
Health problems forced Tholen into that three-year hiatus
in the '80s.
"I took three years off because I had some health-related
problems," Tholen said. "It was advised that I do that. I did not
have a heart attack. I had heart problems."
During that stint, Tholen taught classes and ran the SFCC
fitness center, until the baseball team's managerial spot re-
opened.
S"I honestly didn't know [about returning]," Tholen said.
"But as I was away from the game longer, I realized I missed
the game, I missed the players and the competition. I wanted to
get back, and I needed to get back in a way that it wouldn't be
detrimental to me and my family."
Tholen's career is chock-full of highlights, including a trip to
the Junior College World Series, where the Saints finished tied
for third in 1985, and journey to Tokyo as an assistant coach for
the NJCAAAll-Star team in 1996.
"To be able to represent your country and stand on the foul


line in a major league stadium in Tokyo and see the American
flag raised in a foreign country was something special," Tholen
said.
But Tholen said the most cherished moments of his career
came from building the relationships he had with his players.
"That's No. 1," Tholen said. "If I look at anything, I'll look
back at the number of players we've had who've been very
successful in life. When they come back and tell me about their
lives and families, those are the things I cherish most."
The most pressing issue facing the Saints coach concerning
his upcoming retirement is what he'll do with his new-found
free time.
"I have some ideas, but there's nothing set," Tholen said. "I
know that I'm not going to go sit there and do nothing because

As the semester winds down,
it's crunch time for the UF gym-
nastics team.
Tonight, the No. 3 Gators begin
the first round of their last stop of
the season in Corvallis, Ore., at the
NCAA Championships.
But the Gators feel that the last
meet of the season is anything but
a stressful final exam.
The team is in consensus that
this tournament is no different
than any other meet this season,
and UF coach Rhonda Faehn has
said she is confident that her team
is more than talented and prepared
enough to make it to the final
round and further.
"In gymnastics, certain things
can happen, and as heartbreaking
as it is to not qualify, you never
know," Faehn said. "But I can hon-
estly say in all confidence that this
team is performing the best they
have since they've been here."
After winning at NCAA


Regionals on April 8, the Gators
earned a trip to Oregon, where
they will compete in Session II on
Thursday at 10 p.m. The top three
teams from each of Thursday's
two sessions will advance to the
Super Six on Friday to compete for
the national title.
"If we go out there, and
we hit the best meet that
we've hit all year and we
come in last place, there's
not much else we can
do."
Samantha Lutz
UF gymnast

"As long as we start out and
everything's consistent, that's
where the results we're looking for
are," Faehn said. "If we're really
great in one event and really low
in another event, it can take the
momentum away, and then you're
trying to come back and build up
what you lost."


The Gators have scored greater
than 195.75 all but twice this sea-
son and earned their best score of
the season, a 197.325, in their last
meet of the regular season. But
UF has averaged 196.325 in the
postseason, and.. only defending
national champion No. 1 Georgia
is averaging higher at 197.35.
Other Session II teams include
No. 4 Iowa State, No. 15 Arizona,
No. 18 Arkansas and No. 17
Oregon State. With the exception
of Arkansas, each team averaged
within one point of the Gators
during the regular season. Still,
the Gators will stick to their plan,
junior Samantha Lutz said.
"If we go out there, and we hit
the best meet that we've hit all year
and we come in last place, there's
not much else we can do," she
said. "But I think we can go out
there and do our job and not come
in 12 place. To just go out and be
aggressive through the final day
of the competition and go after
everything and leave nothing on
the table is our goal."


I'm not made that way."
Added Tholen's wife Susan: "I think well miss baseball. It
will be different."
But she doesn't believe her husband will walk away from
the game completely.
"I think hell still be involved in some capacity, at sorime
level," Susan said. "Because he's been involved, not just here,
but nationally and internationally."
Records aren't important, said Tholen, who has punched
his ticket into the NJCAA Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame while
going 727-424 during his career. He wants to be remembered
by the impactshe made on the players' lives.
"Working with the players, that was the ultimate," Tholen
said. "It's been tremendous.
"But I could not have done this without the support of my
family. Without a family's support, this wouldn't have hap-
pened."


Harry Tholen has spent 22 years coaching baseball at Santa Fe, compiling a 727-424 career record. Saturday will
be his final game. The hall of famer will coach his final game on Saturday.

Meyer stresses team play


* UF COACHES WILL HOLD A DRAFT
TODAY TO DETERMINE TEAMS FOR THE
ORANGE AND BLUE GAME.

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

Since taking over the program about a year
and a half ago, UF coach Urban Meyer has
stressed that playing unselfishly is the only way
for his team to succeed. Playing together is what
made Meyer's teams successful at Utah and
Bowling Green, and it's something that he con-
tinues to try and impress on his players at UE
"Our goal is to become a team, a great team,
and its well documented that we're not," Meyer
said. "We're not panicking because there are not
many great teams. There are a bunch of teams
that win, but a great team is an unselfish team, a
team completely committed to one another, and
it's one heartbeat.
"We're not there, but it's the closest it's been
since I spoke to these guys in December [2004]."
As for the players, they feel that this is the

closest they have been to completely buying into
Meyer's system and philosophies.
"Its way different [from last spring] because
you know what to expect," linebacker Brandon
Siler said. "You know the coaches. The coaches
know you. A lot of it now is football instead of
sitting around and thinking or guessing what the
coaches are going to do."

RUNNING BACKS UPDATE: Meyer has made it
clear he is unhappy with the performance of
his running backs. While sophomore Kestahn
Moore and early-enrollee Chevon Walker have
been slowed by injuries, Meyer is starting to see
some promise in his backfield.
"We're not much better, but the attitude'is tre-
mendous," Meyer said. "I don't know how good
we are. I might question that, but the attitude is
there ... they are starting to get better."

ORANGE AND BLUE ROSTERS: UF's coaching
staff will hold a draft today to set the rosters
for Saturday's Orange and Blue scrimmage
game. Running backs coach Stan Drayton and
corerbacks coach Chuck Heater will coach
the two teams.

at McMahon knows how
to fire his team up. And
Matt LaPorta provides the
muscle behind his coach's words,
once again demonstrating that the
Gators thrive in the face of adver-
sity.
LaPorta silenced a hostile and
tacky crowd of 5,320 fans that
chanted "steroids" as he batted
in the first inning by crushing his
eighth home run of the season, still
rising above the 40-foot-high score-
board, as it cleared the left-field
fence 340 feet away.

start of the game and a severe lightning
storm halted the action for 77 minutes in
the fourth inning.
One blast of lightning during the delay
shook the stadium and cleared all but a
few spectators from their seats before rain
began to pour for the second time.
But it was the Gators' bats that pro-
vided most of the thunder.
LaPorta's eighth home run of the sea-
son put the Gators ahead 1-0 in the first,
and by the bottom of the second, UF had
jumped out to a 6-1 lead.
Hyde held a 7-0 record heading into the
game, but he was pulled after just 1.3 in-
nings, the shortest stint of any FSU starter
this season.
The Gators roughed him up for five
runs four earned on four hits.
Junior centerfielder and Tallahassee
native Gavin Dickey went 2 for 3 with a
home run and four RBI.
"[Being from Tallahassee] adds extra
incentive," Dickey said. "But I just try to
play as hard as I can every day, regardless
of the team."
When play finally resumed in the
fourth inning, one of the largest crowds
in Seminoles' history had shrunk down
to one of the smallest, with the number of
Gators fans in attendance almost matching
the number of FSU supporters.
