Free ice cream day draws student crowds

By AIMEE SACHS
Alligator Contributing Writer

With finals week looming and the temperature rising,
P students could count on some form of relief Tuesday free
ice cream and pizza.
S'. Ben & Jerry's on University Avenue was flooded with
customers all day until 11 p.m. as the ice cream store teamed
up with Domino's Pizza to raise money for the Alachua
County Public Schools Foundation.
Donations came from those who wanted a topping or a
larger amount instead of a free one-scoop cone or cup.
t Toppings were $1 each, while two scoops of ice cream in
a waffle cone cost $3.
"We've had a tremendous outcry of support
from the city. It's all about the foundation
today."

After waiting in the line that wrapped around the store, Morgan Worthy, 8, enjoys her free ice cream cone outside of
the Ben & Jerry's location at University Avenue on Tuesday afternoon.

Student Government gave itself a pat on
the back using $6,278 of students' tuition
money Friday night.
Awards doled out to student officials at
last week's SG banquet, a private affair at a
retirement home in northwest Gainesville,
accounted for about 31 percent of the event's
total cost of nearly $25,000.
Unlike last year, when student money
also went toward treats like chocolate alli-
gators, the only tuition-funded items at this
year's banquet were its awards.
They recognized officials from every
branch of SG, from Student Body President
Joe Goldberg to staff members employed by


SG's various offices.
However, at a total cost of $8,585, SG of-
ficials used more than just tuition money to
honor themselves.
The SG budget limits officials to spend-
ing just $4,000 on awards
throughout the entire
year.
0 To cover additional
-. ,-i. award costs for the ban-
e* Aquet, organizers used
both outside revenue and
student money desig-
Goldberg nated for SG elections.
However, even after
collecting money from other sources, of-
ficials ultimately spent about $1,200 more

SFCC will not be within city lines,
voters decided Tuesday.
About 71 percent of Alachua County
residents who voted yesterday rejected
Gainesville's proposed annexation of a
1,400-acre tract of land west of the city.
About 5,000 Alachua residents in
the area along Interstate 75 between the
Oaks Mall and SFCC would have been
affected by the annexation.
Shortly after 8 p.m., the total votes
were calculated: Only 165 were for an-
nexation while 405 were against.


Domino's offered free pizza to those waiting in line out-
side, charging only $1 for drinks.
"The line has been out the door and down the street all
day long," said Ben & Jerry's store owner Pete Zimek, who
estimated that his staff served 6,000 to 7,000 people.
Political science junior Nicole Varma devoured her cup
of chocolate chip cookie dough after making it through the
line.
"The line looks really long, but it goes really quick,"
Varma said.
Zimek said more than 100 school board members vol-
unteered as well as more than 50 members of the Tri-Delta
sorority. His employees even volunteered their time to make
waffle cones.
"We've had a tremendous outcry of support from the
city," Zimek said. "It's all about the foundation today."


About 23 percent of the 2,517 eligible
voters turned out to vote yesterday at
the polling center, set up at the United
Pentecostal Church on Northwest 23rd
Avenue. Only registered voters who
lived in the area were allowed to vote for
the annexation.
Local Technical difficulties in
News the connection between
the polling center and the
elections office delayed
the final results for almost an hour,
Alachua County Supervisor of Elections
Pam Carpenter said.

Students do the brew


Homebrewing fad catches on locally


By ASHTON GROSZ
Alligator Staff Writer

These aren't your everyday
addicts.
Sure, they enjoy their alcohol,
but it's not just the product that's
hooked them. It's the process.
In between their studies of bi-
ology, gerontology, zoology and
psychology, UF students have
found another science to suit
their selective tastes: zymology,
the art of fermentation and the
backbone of homebrew.
David Silver, a 21-year-old
zoology major, got interested in
homebrewing during his fresh-
man biology labs. The class ex-
periments that turned starches
into sugar using the alpha amy-
lase enzyme whet his palate for
more.
Silver now brews a batch of
beer four to five times a year and
is just one of many students who
brew their own beer at home.
Barron Humphries helps
make it happen. The 28-year-old
has homebrewed for five years.
While working nights as a phar-
macist, he decided to open a local
homebrew supply shop.
Now the owner of Hoggetowne
Ale Works at 15 W. University
Ave., Humphries said he has no-
ticed his sales of homebrew sup-
plies are much better than normal
for a new business. Sales usually
peak at the end of the year as
people buy gifts for the holiday
season, but he said his sales have
defied convention.
Hoggetowne's revenues for
January and February matched
December's, Humphries said.
"The trend is definitely in-
creasing," he said of homebrew-
ing in the area.


Nationally, wine making is
on the rise. Yet Humphries said
Gainesville doesn't follow the
national trend because wine
making appeals more to women
and wealthier clients. Gainesville
is a beer-demanding college town
with a unique student culture.
Humphries said Hoggetowne's
clientele is split into two groups:
30- to 40-year-olds who brew to
get back to some aspect of their
past, and students.
"Students are the newer brew-
ers," he said. "They see us on
the way to Stubbie's [Shirt Pub]
and hear about us by word of
mouth."

"We want to create a
homebrew culture."
Barren Humphries,
Hoggetowne Ale Works owner

Humphries attributes the
growing popularity of home-
brewing in Gainesville to those
who help their friends in the
process, taste the final product
and then want to brew for them-
selves.
"A person will brew with that
person, and then the interest
multiplies," he said.
Also, the variety of beer in
Florida lags behind the Pacific
Northwest's, where microbrew-
eries abound. Strict brewing laws
impede microbreweries from
operating.
"It's all about taxes,"
Humphries said. "Every .label
sold in Florida has to be ap-
proved by the state."
Florida law states that no
homebrewed beer can be sold,
but Humphries said he doesn't
know of anyone who brews to
sell. The variety of tastes and the


pride that comes from making
something from scratch is what
draws people to it, he said.
But while the trend is grow-
ing, Gainesville's community of
dedicated brewers remains a se-
lective bunch. Small living spaces
and tight schedules leave some at
a disadvantage. Humphries says
that of all the people who walk
into the shop, he has only a few
regular customers.
"They come in all gung-ho.
Two we'll never see again, three
to four will come in once a
month. But only about one in 10
sticks with it for more than a year
or two," he said.
Humphries hosts a home-
brewing class once every two
months and prints his cellular
phone number on his business
cards so customers can call him
anytime.
"For the 10 to 20 percent of
people who do it all the time,
we'd like to provide a frame-
work," he said. "We want to cre-
ate a homebrew culture."
The average recipe costs $35
to make 50 12-ounce bottles,
comparable to cooking a fancy
dinner from Publix, he said. Both
will cost about the same and take
about the same amount of time to
prepare.
Jonas Blake, a senior majoring
in electrical engineering, said
he spent about $110 to make his
first batch of mead, a fermented
honey wine.
However, he said, most of
the costs went toward the initial
setup.
"Even the first batch was very
economical. I got'35 bottles of re-
ally high quality mead that I can
say I can make myself," Blake,
22, said.


Hoggetowne Ale Works employee Rick Dietrich inspects a bag of
barley Tuesday at the store that sells brewing supplies. Dietrich
started working at Hoggetowne on account of his own interest in
brewing, a hobby rapidly gaining in popularity.


Silver said there are several
reasons he's drawn to homebrew-
ing.
"The first has to do with the
range of beers. I could make
something you're not going to
see in a grocery store every day.
Two, depending on how good
you are, you can make beers

that are personally superior to a
beer you could buy in a store,"
he said. "And then finally, there
is that sense of accomplishment
- of doing something for your-
self. You know a rat didn't crap
in it. Oh, how can I say that more
eloquently? You get to see every.
step in the process."

Gators stomp bars


By SHIRA KRAMER
Alligator Contributing Writer

The party isn't over yet. Gator
Stompin' is back.
More than 30 bars; clubs and res-
taurants in Gainesville will provide
food, drinks and live music for stu-
dents and local residents celebrating
the end of the semester.
The event takes place May 4 from
8p.m. to 2 a.m. onUniversityAvenue
and in downtown Gainesville.
"It's kind of like a last
hurrah."
Skip Simpson
AOI Media art director

It's called Gator Stompin' be-
cause most people walk from place
to place, said Skip Simpson, art
director at AOI Media, which spon-
sors the event.
"It's kind of like a last hurrah,"
he said.
Participants get free admission
and a designated food or drink item
with the purchase of the admission
package, which includes a T-shirt
and badge, Simpson said.
This semester, organizers are not
requiring participants to wear the.T-
shirts, but they will have to wear a
badge around their necks, he said.
According to the event's Web
site, www.gatorstompin.com, the
package is available at Gator City,
Domino's Pizza near 34th Street and
University Avenue, and online for
$30. The cost is $25 if it is purchased
at Campus Club Apartments.


Jason Bowman, chief executive
officer of AOI Media, said he expects
about 2,000 people. Last semester
about 1,500 participated.
Last Fall there were about 17
Venues, and the growing popular-
ity of the event helped attract more
sponsors this Spring.
Starbucks, Quiznos and Taco
Ardiente are some of the new addi-
tions, Bowman said. They will set up
inside other venues along the way.
Also new this year, eight live
bands will perform at various loca-
tions, Bowman said. Popular stops
are likely to include Gator City, Rue
Bar, which features an ice luge, and
Fat Tuesday, he said.
Kevin Pickard, a UF graduate
student, attended Gator Stompin'
last year.
With so many venues, it's hard
to hit them all, he said. He suggests
people have an idea of where they
want to go rather than trying to go
everywhere.
According to the Web site, Tom
Sartori will kick off the event at
Gator City. Other performers in-
dude Velveteen Pink and Kellen
Malloy, who performed at last
year's Gator Growl.
To ensure participants' safety,
prepaid cab cards will be available
at the end of the trail, Bowman said.
There is also a designated driver
system, he said. Those interested in
being a designated driver can get
$10 off the admission package and
will not be served alcohol..
Nonalcoholic drinks will be
available for drivers and attendees
under 21.

Victims' Rights Week focuses on student safety at UF


By DELIA M. RIVERA ZABALA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students who spend their late hours on
campus studying for finals might not be as
safe as they think.
That's the message University Police
Officer John Savona wants to spread during
Victims' Rights Week held through April 29.


"People don't realize that being around
campus late at night is unsafe," Savona said.
He said not a lot of people know that UPD
officers can escort students around campus
after 1:30 a.m. to ensure their safety.
"We have bike officers that are sometimes
not doing anything, and in moments like that
it's our responsibility to make sure students
get home safe," Savona said.


UPD offered sign-up sheets for a Rape
Aggression Defense Program in the Reitz
Union on Tuesday. The classes are free to stu-
dents and teach women how to
Public make educated decisions about
Safety resisting an attack, according to
UPD's Web site.,
"When the.students enter the class their
confidence is zero to none," Savona said.


Savona said many. students who par-
ticipate in the class don't know what they are
capable of.
The week's events also include a candle-
light vigil Thursday at the Victims Memorial
Park on Williston Road to honor victims of
crimes.

classes, visit http://police.ufl.edu.

Students plan Plaza's future


By DOMINICK TAO
Alligator Writer
dtao@alligator.org

A group of UF graduate students
were given 135 acres around Butler
Plaza and told to develop it.
And they did on paper and
PowerPoint for a final class project.
For the past two months, 24
business and real estate master's
students have been working with
Tampa developer Ken Mamula
to plan the future of one of
Gainesville's busiest retail areas, on
Archer Road east of Interstate 75.
Ken Mamula, president of
Florida Southeast Development
Corp., is in the process of buying
Butler Plaza from Gainesville real
estate mogul Clark Butler.
Details of the students' propos-
als were not released to the public
due to a confidentiality agreement
between Florida Southeast and UF,
but the general direction of their
proposals followed Mamula's vi-
sion.
That vision, Mamula said, is a


center for shopping and dining,
complete with 600 condominium
units and a bandstand for concerts
overlooking a swan-populated
lake.
Aided by dual projector screens,
the students presented their
weeks of planning and research to
Mamula in a Stuzin Hall classroom
Tuesday.
"We were basically given
the developer's hat."
Kris Kral
UF student


"We were basically given the
developer's. hat," said Kris Kral,
one of the students.
Divided into four "highly com-
petitive" teams, the students had to
complete the same steps of pre-con-
struction as any other developer,
said Mark Monroe, the director of
UF's Center for Real Estate Studies.
"They decide what stores, con-
dos, hotels will go in," Mamula


said. "We told them to take every-
thing into consideration."
Marc Nakleh, a student working
on the project, said his group was
faced with more questions when
coming up with a development
proposal than just land and con-
struction costs.
"Not only will we show what we
can do," Nakleh said, "but we need
to show [Mamula] it can work."
Nakleh said the process also
involved determining how much
new development would impact
the community.
"Can the market support
more retail at Butler Plaza? Will
it take away from the mall?
Redevelopment downtown? How
will it impact the region?" Nakleh
said.
The list of questions students an-
swered to come up with a workable
development plan was long, but on
Tuesday they delivered.
"This school does things better
than any other," Mamula said after
watching two of the four presenta-
tions.

Editorial
On the last day of classes and the last day of our publica-
tion for the semester, we at the Department of Darts & Laurels
thought it appropriate to recap all the semester's highlights and
lowlights.
And what a semester its been.
So sit down and strap in as we have one more go at it in the
end-of-the-semester edition of our very own...



Darts & Laurels

First and most importantly, we bestow a who-says-
we're-a-football-school LAUREL to the national champion
Gators men's basketball team. Their victory in the NCAA
tournament was both improbable and spectacular. We
loved every minute of it.
It was a special season.
Plus, it gave us all an excuse to go out, get wasted and par-
ty on University Avenue. That has to count for something.
And speaking of parties, this semester we also had to
endure yet another Student.Government election. Like a
bad case of athlete's foot, these minor university politicos
just keep coming back.
Ah, the wonders of democracy.
We suppose we should toss a congratulatory keep-the-
political-machine-in-motion LAUREL to John Boyles and
the Swamp Party for winning in the elections.
Boyles ran against Jared Hernandez in an entirely un-
memorable race for the Student Body presidency. Boyles,
along with inost of the Swamp Party, was victorious.
The thing we remember most about the campaigns was
waiting for the announcement of the election results. They
were supposed to be announced at midnight after the last
day of elections.
We didn't find out who'd won until 1:05 in the morn-
-ing. Our paper goes to print at 2 a.m.
Good times.
In another local election one that we're less bitter
about we throw a maybe-students-are-a-factor-in-lo-
cal-politics-after-all LAUREL to Jeanna Mastrodicasa for
defeating Tony Domenech in the race for the Gainesville
City Commission's at-large seat.
At first, we didn't think Mastrodicasa, a UF administra-
tor, had a chance.
Sure, her-platform was student-friendly, but students
usually don't influence city elections. Domenech, her op-
ponent, was apparently looking to capitalize on local hos-
tility toward students, claiming that he wanted to "rescue"
neighborhoods from student renters.
But somehow, miraculously, Mastrodicasa pulled it off.
We're still scratching our heads, but we're glad she did it.
But speaking of scratching our heads, this semester also
featured one of the most bizarre SG stunts we've seen in
a long time.
That's why we're stapling a we-really-can't-under-
stand-how-you-people-get-away-with-this-stuff PART to
the forehead of current Student Body Treasurer Lindsay
Cosimi.
First, Cosimi resigned from her position; in an an-
nouncement, John Boyles speculated that it was because
of "something dramatic, something rough."
We found out later that it was because she'd received
a grade of E in one of her Spring 2005 classes, lowering
her grade point average for the semester below a 2.0, the
minimum for SG officers.
Under SG rules, she had to nominate three candidates
to the Student Senate as her replacement. One of those
candidates was herself.
The senate unanimously replaced Cosimi with Cosimi.
In the interim, the grade of E had mysteriously disap-
peared.
We called shenanigans, but the issue died on the table.
We weren't surprised, just disappointed.
So it goes.

Israeli politics should be model for others


T he thing about democracy is that it can be really
inconvenient.
The political aims of ambitious men often cannot
wait for a tranquil environment; they rise to the fore in times
of extraordinary danger as well as extraordinary opportu-
nity. The ambitious don't wait for peace.
Fortunately, after spending enough time in a democratic
system, the citizenry can learn to accept, and at times even
enjoy, the preening of politicians.
So while there's no doubt that most Israelis were sur-
prised when Prime Minister Ariel Sharon abandoned the
Likud Party to form a new, more centrist Kadima Party, they
did what they always do: notice the presence of new facts,
strive to understand them, and eventually, accept them. And
when the Labour Party chose as their leader the Moroccan-
born Amir Peretz over long-time statesmen Shimon Peres,
well, that was just another new addition to the ever-shifting
world of Israeli politics.
The rationales and implications of all this movement are
of great import to the Israelis, but for those of us looking in
from the outside, the details are, if not irrelevant, somewhat
tertiary to the main curiosity.
If America is considered a young country at 229 years old,'
what does that make Israel's democracy, born only in 1949?
And what does it say about the Israeli electorate that, in the
midst of extraordinary new developments in a decades-long
struggle for their country's very existence, they will happily
go to the polls and possibly vote to dramatically overhaul the
composition.of their government?
It says that Israelis, surrounded by hostile tyrannies, have
vigorously embraced the raucous and unpredictable saga of
democratic governance. While fighting a constant battle for
survival, Israelis have come to realize with astonishing swift-
ness that the differences inherent in humanity are what make
for a vital and robust political system.
Discussion is good. Debate is good. Dissent is good. What
the Bush administration cannot accept the Israelis under-,


Andrew Bare

stand almost instinctively.
Israel's democracy is a perfect
illustration of the age-old idea that
internal family squabbling, does
nothing to diminish the family's
core strength. There is no lack of
passionate disagreement within the
Israeli electorate; their politicians
fight and claw and scrape for every
bit of power and influence they can
reach, just as politicians in every


democracy do.
Before Sharon's decision, the Israeli Knesset sat represen-
tatives from 14 different parties. And Israel's complicated
electoral system ensures that a massive range of ideas and
philosophies are represented in the government. Israeli poli-
tics are quarrelsome and often bitter. Such is often the case
when the issues discussed are matters of national survival.
And yet, these same men and women who squabble with
such tenacity one moment will join together in indivisible
solidarity the very instant the safety and well-being of the
Jewish people are threatened. The ability to recognize that
disagreement in no way equates with disloyalty is an indis-
pensable element of any healthy democracy.
Perhaps the necessity of accepting any willing pair of.
hands in May, 1948 inculcated into Israel the irrationality of
questioning the loyalty of citizens with different views.
In March of next year, Israel will hold elections for parlia-
mentary representatives. It's probably not wise to speculate
on the result of those elections. It is, however, entirely safe
to predict that the elections will be models of efficiency and
professionalism, resulting in a legitimate government with
whose decisions not all Israelis will agree. -
But it will also result in a government all Israelis will ac-
cept.

Letters to the Editor
Prohibition on gay marriage is bigotry
Last Friday Joshua Cunio asserted "a
state ban.on gay marriages would hardly
affect UF students, unless they happen to
be gay and plan on marrying a member of
the same sex in Florida soon. Most UF stu-
dents likely do not fit that category."
Cunio also argued that "support for the
preservation of traditional marriage" does
not "constitute fear or hatred of gays."
Cunio's arguments are insensitive;
moreover, they miss the point.
Observe: What if a group of people
think that there should be a state ban on
interracial marriage because they believe
that marriage between two members of
the same race is the only legitimate kind?
Well, according to Cunio, nobody should
care.
After all, a state ban on interracial mar-
ridges would hardly affect UF students,
unless they happen to be of one race and
plan on marrying a member of another
race in Florida.
Most UF students likely do not fit that
category.
And besides, how does support "for
the preservation of traditional marriage
somehow constitute fear or hatred" of
interracial couples?
This argument is clearly outdated,
and most would consider it absurd. Most
would also consider it blatant racism. Yet
all I did was replace "gay" with "inter-
racial."
Just because an issue will not directly
affect the majority of the population does
not mean that it should be dismissed as
irrelevant.

Parenthood herself.


Israel unjustly persecutes Palestinians
David Drescher trots out tired, old
arguments to justify Israelis' continued
slaughter of Arabs and Palestinians. He ig-
nores the fact that Israel has killed at least
three times more people, has fired rockets
and used attack helicopters, and has, de-
tained thousands for days, weeks, months,
years without ever filing charges. Why is
an Israeli attack "defensive" and an Arab
attack "terrorist"? It appears to me to be
the other way around. They knock down
entire blocks of homes and shoot children.
Gerald J. Bodoh
Gainesville resident



Letter was delusional on contraceptives
Victoria Potocki is dangerously de-
lusional. No form of birth control is 100
percent effective.
And before someone writes in, absti-
nence is not 100 percent effective because
those who pledge to stay abstinent often
fail.

condom, what are we to do? Hopefully she

Conservatives are just happily ignorant
This letter is in response to Matt
Melone's, "Liberal pettiness leads to bit-
ter misery." While I am not qualified to
rebut the Pew Report (compiled from a
sampling of slightly over 3,000 people), I
can suggest a reason for the conservative
bliss ignorance.
The conservative base is fueled by a
policy of hypocrisy, disregard for truth
and hate. Perhaps conservatives are hap-
pier due to their ability to ignore issues
such as the lack of health care for poor
Americans, the continuing slaughter of
Iraqi civilians and misled soldiers, envi-
ronmental degradation and the shocking
disregard for the truth the Bush adminis-
tration displays.
Conservative ignorance has never been
greater, as conservatives flock to polls to
condemn abortion and homosexuality,
while ignoring issues that really impact
American lives. I happen to be one very
happy liberal (with an amazing sex life)
who would never trade my awareness for
blissful ignorance.
Ashley Hopson
2LS


People should make their own decisions
According to Robert Angel's letter
Monday, he believes the only method to
prevent pregnancies is for everyone to be
completely abstinent until they wish to
have children. Although abstinence is 100
percent effective at preventing pregnancy,
it is not realistic in our world. Two out of
three individuals will have had sex by age
18, according to the Centers for Disease
Control, and a recent study from UF shows
75 percent of our students are sexually ac-
tive. Being sexually active is natural and
should not be looked down upon. Unlike
Angel, we believe people should be able
to make their own decisions about their
sexual lives. To have an abortion or to start
using birth control is a big decision, one
that is not taken lightly. Unlike toilet paper
and toothpaste so-called "modern con-
veniences" methods of birth control are
no modern convenience; its use has been
dated back to the ancient Egyptians.
Angel didn't even consider in his letter
that unfortunately not all sex is consen-
sual. Sometimes women take emergency
contraception or have an abortion be-
cause of rape, not because they were "un-
able to control their sexual tendencies."
Contraceptives and medically accurate,
age appropriate, comprehensive sexual
education help everyone to practice safe
sex with his or her partners. Sex is not a
simplistic matter, and being responsible
with proper education and contraceptive
use puts us in control of our "sexual ten-
dertcies."

Local salsa dance instructor turns up the heat


By DANNY SANCHEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

The beginner students stare
intensely at their moving feet, fol-
lowing along.
Others meticulously watch them-
selves in the mirror, trying to imitate
Darren Stuart as he shakes his hips
and counts, "Uno ... dos ... tres!"
The salsa dance students seem to
be stepping correctly and awk-
wardly. Sqme appear as if they're
marching or treading through a
minefield.
"You gotta be loose," Stuart
shouts to his students. "Nice and
snug relaxed."
Stuart is the director of Salsa
Caliente on West University Avenue,
a dance school where people learn to
dance salsa and eventually execute
turns in which the dancers resemble
a pair of spinning human pretzels.
As 30 minutes pass, the begin-
ners start to loosen up. An elbow
gets an extra wiggle, and a leg occa-
sionally gets a bit more shake. Most
of them stay for the second hour of
class, where they learn to dance with
a partner and in a "rueda," or circle.
The class is open to people of
all skill levels and ages, including a
9-year-old girl who has been attend-
ing for about a month and breezes
through the turns with almost un-
canny calm.
The men in the class, who are
nearly twice her size, must bend
over to perform certain turns with
her, but don't seem to mind. A look
of embarrassment flashes across one
man's face as he misses a turn, and
the girl giggles as she waits for her
partner to arrive.
"She asked if she could be in the
class when 'she saw another little
girl dancing," said her father, Jim
Lilkendey, who has, been coming
for four months and often brings his
son and daughter. "I figured she'd


just go through the beginner class.
But she got into it, and she's doing
great/'
In the classes, students learn
some Spanish by memorizing a long
list of salsa turns. Some of the more
colorfully named moves translate
into "a cheating spouse" and "your
momma," a move in which the
dancers spin around and mockingly
shoot a dirty look at the person be-
hind them.
Some moves sound more like
hair-raising theme park rides, with
names like "cyclone," "saw" and
"cannonball." Despite their menac-
ing monikers, none of the turns


"This is like 80 percent of
my social life. I come here,
and when I feel the first
salsa song, I can just feel
the stress melting off me."
.Jim Sullivan
Attorney and salsa dancer

require any special acrobatics or
athletic abilities just patience to
learn, Stuart said.
Stuart was born and raised in
Barbados, and at age 12 his fam-
ily moved to the U.S. He was first


exposed to Latino culture and be-
gan dancing at his high school in
Pembroke Pines, Fla.
At high school parties, "they
used to play the Latin music mixed
with the booty," Stuart said.
He said the people he knows in
Barbados often forget he owns a
salsa school.
"They're like two different lives,"
Stuart said.
Chase Whitener, a Salsa Caliente
instructor, said he used to laugh
about the fact that Stuart heads the
salsa classes and Latino club nights
but is not Hispanic and doesn't
speak the language.


Andrea Morales/ Alligator Staff
Darren Stuart leads a "rueda de casino," where couples form a circle while a caller shouts and signals
dance moves, at a salsa social at the Unified Training Center.


Whitener, who is also not
Hispanic, hails from Jasper, Fla.,
a small mining town where the
"only Hispanic people are the few
Mexicans that are there."
"We kinda used to laugh about
it," Whitener said. "[We're like], the
black guy from Barbados and the
white guy from the farm teaching
people to dance salsa."
When Stuart arrived for his
freshman year at UF in 2000, he said
he searched for Latin clubs and a
studio to begin teaching salsa.
He found the studio, but the
owner wanted Stuart to pay for
classes before he could teach.
"I didn't have the money to go
and pay for lessons and learn stuff I
already knew," Stuart said.
In 2001, Stuart taught a free class
in a UF dorm. It was then he realized
he could go out on his own.
That Spring, Stuart opened Salsa
Caliente at the Unified Training
Center, a martial arts dojo at 809
W. University Ave. About 55 people
showed up for the first free class,
Stuart said.
But enrollment fell as Stuart
began charging for classes. He was
making only $30 to $40 a week after
expenses.
Eventually, he went on to build
Salsa Caliente into a studio that
teaches two salsa classes a week in
addition to occasional special classes
that feature other styles of Latino
dance.
Depending on the time of year,
more than a hundred people might
show up, Stuart said.
To some students in Stuart's
classes, salsa becomes a way of life.
"This is like 80 percent of my
social life," said Jim Sullivan, a 43-
year-old attorney who has attended
classes for three years. "I come here,
and when I feel the first salsa song,
I can just feel the stress melting off
me."


Gates don't necessarily guarantee safety in complexes


* GATES GIVE RESIDENTS A SECURE
FEELING BUT AREN'T A CURE-ALL.

By MEGAN WALKER
Alligator Contributing Writer

A neighborhood may look safe from the
outside, surrounded with a fence secured by
a locked gate. But is it the gates that ensure
residents' safety or the neighbors?
Gainesville has many apartment complexes
and communities, said Vanessa Neale, general
manager of Apartment Hunters. When fami-
lies move here, the most common questions
they ask is if the apartment is close to campus,


gated and in a safe area, she said.
"As a parent, your child may be leaving
home for the first time and you want to make
sure that they are living in a secure place,"
Neale said.
But according to the fair housing laws,
Neale said real estate agents can't tell an
individual if one neighborhood is safer than
another.
"If they are really interested, we refer them
to the Gainesville Police Department," she
said.
Apartment Hunters deals with about 200
properties, Neale said. Ten percent are gated.
The Estates apartments of Gainesville, 3527
SW 20th Ave., is one of the gated apartment


complexes in the city. It has four gates and is
surrounded by a fence.
"There are only two ways to get into our
gate the legal way," said Kevin Clarke, general
manager of The Estates.
The gate system does have some impact
on reducing the crime rate in The
Public Estates, but it does not guarantee
safety, Clarke said. Insiders, peo-
ple who live in the community,
enter the gate with their remotes
or passcode, and they may be followed by a
nonresident looking for a way to get in.
"There is no gate system that can prevent
that," Clarke said. "But it is definitely an im-
provement over not having anything at all."


In addition to the gate system, The Estates
has two courtesy officers on the property,
Clarke said.
"Their presence alone makes the commu-
nity feel safer," Clarke said.
Growing up in a town like Kissimmee, UF
junior Jennifer Carroll said she is used to living
in a place where neighbors can be trusted, and
she has never before lived in an apartment or a
gated community.
Carroll lives alone in a house on Southwest
Third Avenue, two blocks from the university.
She said she feels very safe where she is now,
mostly because of her neighbors.
"A neighborhood is only as safe as the peo-
ple who live in it allow it to be," Carroll said.

STUDENT LIFE

Moving out increases thefts


By CASSANDRA SEDA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Theft becomes a more frequent problem at the
end of the year when students are moving out, ac-
cording to the University Police Department.
Police advise that students know what to do to
keep from becoming victims of theft and what to
do to make leaving for summer easier..
"The biggest problems we have are traffic and
parking related," said UPD Community Services
Officer Darren Sanders.
Although patrolmen willbe more lenient about
parking-related violations, Sanders said there are
still rules that need to be upheld.
"Fire lanes must always be kept clear. They are
there for a reason," Sanders said.
Tolbert Area Resident Assistant Ali Gaffey said
she would also recommend that students refrain
from parking in orange decal spots and areas
where towing notices are posted.
"Usually the UPD is more lenient. If you're
just parking to the side and keeping your hazards
on and not staying there all day, then it should be
OK," Gaffey said.
Loading passes can be obtained from UPD's
front desk, but patrolmen will be more under-
standing while students are moving out as long
as fire lanes, bike lanes and no-parking zones are
kept cear, Sanders said.
Students should be mindful of leaving their
belongings unattended or leaving car doors open,
Sanders said.
Books, iPods, laptops, bicycles and other per-
sonal property can easily be sold for quick-cash,
according to UPD.
While students are moving out they need to be
careful to secure items while moving them, wrote
Capt. Jeff Holcomb, a community services officer
for UPD, in an e-mail interview. Holcomb wrote
that students should not leave vehicles open dur-
ing trips from their rooms to their vehicles.
"It is also recommended that valuables-are not


placed in plain sight inside the vehicle," Holcomb
wrote. "Try and place these items in the trunk."
SWithout someone to watch a vehicle, students
should lock their cars during every trip they make
back and forth.
Among all the items that could be stolen dur-
ing the loading process, bicycles tend to be stolen
more than any other item at the end of each se-
mester, according to UPD.
Students should use bike racks and locks to
prevent theft and take their bikes home if they
aren't staying in Gainesville over-the summer.
Otherwise, UPD will tag abandoned bicycles
and those left behind for the summer will be
impounded and subject to public auction after
30 days.
"Usually the UPD is more lenient. If
you're just parking to the side and
keeping your hazards on and not
staying there all day, then it should be
OK."
Ali Gaffey
Tolbert Area resident assistant

Sanders also advises students to choose an
appropriate time to load belongings: He said he
can understand why some students choose to
leave Gainesville late at night, but when it gets
dark, safety is more at risk than in the middle of
the day.
"We always step up patrols during this time of
year just to be safe, but students can do their part,
too," Sanders said.
Gaffey said that from her experience as a
resident assistant, she knows that a lot of students
don't lock their room doors when taking things to
and from their cars.
"It's something that should always be done,
but especially at the end of the semester," Gaffey
said. "It's really important for safety."


View of stars dim


with campus lights


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Light-pollution, when the glow
of artificial lights blocks the night
sky, is bad on the UF campus and
getting worse.
"It's sad," said Noah Rashkind,
a UF graduate student who teaches
the Astronomy Laboratory class.
The curriculum calls for three night
labs to allow students to observe
celestial objects.
Each semester, two of
Rashkind's night labs include look-
ing at the moon and the planets,
which are easy to see despite the
light pollution. But the third lab,
which requires finding objects
in the deep sky, is tougher in the
bright city of Gainesville.
"The 'deep sky' lab is usu-
ally pretty uninteresting for the
students," Rashkind said. Objects
such as the Ring Nebula and the
Andromeda Galaxy show up as
faint smudges in the telescopes.
Rashkind has noticed a change
since he was a UF undergraduate
student.
"When I took the lab myself in
1998, there was a lot more to see,"
he said.
The Campus Teaching
Observatory behind the New
Physics Building is negatively af-
fected by light pollution. This may


cause first-time observers to lose
interest in astronomy, Rashkind
said.
"If you go to observe on cam-
pus [as your first time], it may
deter people in the same way as
buying a telescope at Wal-Mart
would," Rashkind said.
Light pollution comes from a
variety of sources on campus and
throughout Gainesville.
Justin Schaefer, a graduate
student in charge of the Campus
Teaching
UF Observatory
Academics Public Nights,
held every
Friday, said observing the sky dur-
ing football season is particularly
bad.
The lights at Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium are left on all night during
football season, and this blots out
fainter stars, Schaefer said.
Street lamps, parking lots
and garages are major sources of
light pollution, but are necessary
for people's safety on campus,
Schaefer said.
Lamps that direct light down-
ward are available, but they are less
aesthetically pleasing and more ex-
pensive, Schaefer said.
"It has just been cheaper to put
a big light bulb up there and let it
glow in every direction," Schaefer
said.

Household items collected for international students


Program lends necessaries


By JESSICA DUCHENE
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF has never seen a recycling
program like this.
With the help of students and
faculty within UF's International
Center, a new program collect-
ing abandoned household items
throughout Gainesville will directly
benefit international exchange stu-
dents and international short-term
scholars enrolled in UF's interna-
tional program.
"The idea behind the program is
to reuse and recycle any items that
students abandon when they move


out at the end of each semester," said
Donna Rowland, program assistant
at the International Center. "We col-
lect those items and then lend them
out to international students who
visit the university for a short time."
Rowland said international
short-term scholars are at the uni-
versity for six months or less and
international exchange students for
generally no more than a year.
Lyn Straka, exchange program
adviser at the center, works with
international exchange students
and said the cost of living for them
adds up quickly. They come to
Gainesville with nothing and must


buy everything from a hairdryer to
coat hangers, she said.
"Its a big deal," she said. "Its a
lot of money."
The,program collects bicycles,
pillows, sheets, silverware, dishes
and any other household items that
students do not want at the end of
the semester.
"It's amazing to see how much
is abandoned," Straka said. "You
could furnish an entire apartment
with everything that is left behind."
Fei Long, an international stu-
dent from China and student sena-
tor, said he was happy to hear about
the new program. Long said many
international students give or loan
items to other students before they


leave the university, but this new
program will make the recycling
process more useful.
Ahmad Al-Basheer, an interna-
tional student from Jordan, said a
a group of international students is
trying to start a similar program that
will lend out beds and desks.
"As international students, we
look for a place to study
Student and sleep," Al-Basheer
Lffe said. "All we need is a
bed and a desk."
Rowland and Straka said that
they lend out all of the household
items they collect on an honor sys-
tem and ask international students
to return them before leaving for
their home countries: In addition,


Rowland and Straka provide per-
sonal funding for bicycle locks and
cleaning for the household items
before they are lent out to students.
Straka said the program has no
budget and was created out of "the
goodness of our hearts."
The International Center is open
Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m.
to 5p.m. for any students who would
like to bring items for the program.
Donations may be taken to Donna
Rowland in Faculty and Scholar
Services at Grinter Hall, Room 146,
or to Lyn Straka in Student Services
at Grinter Hall, Room 123. Students
can bring donations throughout the
year but are encouraged to do so at
Sthe end of the semester.


DocuN ...'s ss to pt Ua

Documentary inspires students to protest Uganda War


By SHARILYN WISKUP
Alligator Contributing Writer

A borrowed and unfamiliar documentary
impacted the lives of 10 UF students who sat
in silence and prayed when it finished.
Wendi Conley and nine of her friends-
prayed for 30,000 children who live in daily
fear of being captured and sent to war by the
Ugandan army. These 12-year-old children
walk from a sheltered home to an unsuper-
vised village every night where they sleep in
a clustered pack on dirty, concrete floors to
avoid capture.
This nightly commute has occurred for
the past 20 years. In 2003, three college-aged
men who traveled to Africa discovered and
publicized it by creating a film. They left with
more than 500 hours of footage and a story


Americans had never heard.
After Conley and her friends watched
the documentary, "Invisible Children," they
made a promise to get involved.
The first step to spread awareness was a
free screening of the film, which played in
the Reitz Union two weeks ago and inspired
many to participate in the upcoming.Global
Night Commute on Saturday night, when
they will walk to Westside Park, 1001 NW
34th St., and sleep outside in remembrance
for the thousands of children who do it every
night.
This is the first time the Global Night
Commute will take place, and more than
30,000 participants across the country have
already committed to the cause.
UF freshman Erica Acebo was one of the
about 60 people who saw the film at the Reitz


"The idea of poverty and suffer-
ing makes Americans uncomfort-
able. They need to know it's not
impossible to help the children."
Nick Gizzi
UF freshman

Union and decided to volunteer with the
Global Night Commute. She said she hopes
this peaceful protest will force the government
to acknowledge and end the war in Uganda.
"I think its a crime against children to take
them from their homes and make them fight a
war they were bom into," she said.
According to the "Invisible Children" Web
site, 108 Gianesville residents will join the
cause on Saturday night.


UF freshman Nick Gizzi said he was
heartbroken after he saw the documentary
at the Reitz Union and was eager to show his
support by signing up for the Global Night
Commute.
Gizzi said he made new friends through
the cause, including Acebo, whom he met on
Facebook.com.
Remember the Invisible Children was once
an eight-member Facebook group, but has
grown to 167 members after he decided to
become the group moderator and spread the
cause by word of mouth.
Gizzi is hopeful that this night will make
an impact throughout the country.
'The idea of poverty and suffering makes
Americans uncomfortable," he said. "They
need to know it's not impossible to help the
children."

SG uses students' money for awards


BANQUET, from page 1

on awards than they initially antici-
pated.
SG Finance Office Business
Manager Stan Beckerdite said he
does not know who is responsible for
the purchases or where the funding
will come from.
"I would think outside revenue,"
Beckerdite speculated. "[Funding
for the awards] is actively being
pursued."
Student Body Vice President Joyce
Medina oversaw the banquet's plan-
ning, but she said not all of the award
funding fell under her oversight.
Student Body President Joe
Goldberg played a part in purchas-
ing awards, said Student Senate
Secretary Glenda Frederick, but
Goldberg did not return phone
calls Tuesday seeking comment.
In shelling out $6,278 of stu-
dent funds for awards, SG officials
funded such items as shadow box
plaques for SG executives and gav-
el plaques for Senate presidents.
Senate President Lauren
Mierley, who attended the ban-
quet, said she was unaware that
any student money had been fun-
neled toward SG awards.
"I was under the impression
that the whole banquet was funded
by ... outside donations," she said.
"I'm confident that our SG officials


follow the guidelines set out for
them."
Other major banquet costs includ-
ed dinner for 200 at $7,590, table
flower arrangements at $1,125 and
chocolate alligators at $666.


Beckerdite said he and other of-
ficials are working to find out who
is responsible for surpassing the
award budget's limits.
"All I know is I've got the bills
right now," Beckerdite said.


71% of voters say no

VOTE, from page 1

Instead, a poll worker in charge of the election drove the
voting machine to the office.
Besides that, the election ran very smoothly, Carpenter
said.
Daniel Jones, a UF junior in statistics, said he "called and
Facebooked" people before the election in hopes that the
vote would pass.
"Students not even in the area wanted it to pass," said
Jones, a former SFCC student government member.
Many SFCC students were in favor of the annexation be-
cause the city would have created another Regional Transit
System bus route using revenue from the increased property
taxes. The 20-minute route would have gone from the Oaks
Mall, down Newberry Road, north on Fort Clarke Boulevard
and west on Northwest 23rd Avenue to SFCC.
If annexed, property taxes would have increased by about
$134, said Karen Snyder, Gainesville's strategic planner.
The annexation would have brought about $2 million
in new revenue to the city in the first year, according to the
urban report. This money would have been used to fund
services in the area.
Snyder said she was "appreciative and excited to see
young people in the community get involved in govern-
ment," referring to the students who rallied for annexation.
She attributed the movement for the annexation's failure
to residents in the area being afraid of change.
Keith Faulk agreed. As treasurer for Citizens for Better
Government, an anti-annexation group, he fought among
those who believed annexation wasn't worth the taxes.
"It was a gamble to a lot of citizens," Faulk said.

Hybrids gain popularity


By BRITTANY BOUFFARD
Alligator Contributing Writer

Solutions to rising gas prices and air pollu-
tion have merged, and some Gainesville resi-
dents are racing to embrace the technology.
U.S. hybrid-electric vehicle sales will grow
from about 212,000 vehicles in 2005 to 780,000
by 2012, a 268 percent increase, according to a
J.D. Power and Associates report.
Hybrid vehicles run by coupling a gas en-
gine with an electric motor. This combination
produces superior gas mileage and eliminates
harmful emissions, helping both the wallet and
the environment, according to the Department
of Energy Web site.
"They're very popular everywhere," said Joe
Alfonso, a sales associate at Gatorland Toyota,
about the Toyota Prius. "We can't keep them on
the lot."
Alfonso said customers must advance order
the Prius since the local demand has grown.
According to the Toyota Web site, the model
can run up to 650 miles between fill-ups.
Lee Barto, a salesman at Wade Raulerson
Honda, said they also have received several de-
posits for hybrid vehicles not in stock. Although
the vehicles' popularity has increased because
of the area's rising gas prices, the nonhybrid


Honda Civic is still their best seller, he said.
The American Council for an Energy
Efficient Economy rates the Honda Insight and
the Toyota Prius as the top 2006 vehicles of their
kind. The ratings, based on fuel economy and
emissions, reported both cars get 60 miles per
gallon in the city.
"They're very popular everywhere.
We can't keep them on the lot."
Joe Alfonso
Gatorland Toyota sales associate

Matt Holland, a UF junior, said, "Nobody
can afford $3 gas it's ridiculous."
Holland pays more than $50 to fill up his
Ford Explorer, which gets about 15 mpg in
the city. He said he would probably consider a
hybrid car, but would rather buy a truck for the
hauling capacity.
Most hybrids cost more than their gasoline
counterparts, however. The suggested retail
price for a 2006 Civic Hybrid is $22,150 while
the Civic Sedan costs $14,760, according to the
Honda Web site.
Hybrid owners enjoy federal tax benefits
and the use of car pool lanes in some states.
Additionally, they refuel less often and their
pollutant emissions are lower.

Gators not giving up despite disappointing season


By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
Alligator Staff Writer
sdvanness@alligator.org

The season is far from over for
UF first baseman Matt LaPorta, but
even if it really is wrapping up, he's


not going anywhere.
"I've heard some people saying
we're giving up, and to me that's
an absurd comment," LaPorta said.
"Even if the war's over, you can't
give up. You've got to keep battling.
You put so much effort, so much of


your life and so much of your time
into baseball, and you don't give up
until the last outs made and the last
game's played."
The UF baseball team (24-20,6-12
Southeastern Conference) is far from
where many thought it would be at


7.. W. .. .. ..
-"..... ......... ........... ,..-........::.,., ..



'4.



, -. ". .,


An Auburn runner collides with UF first baseman Matt LaPorta as he catches the ball and on Friday at
McKethan Stadium. The Gators lost the series opener 9-6.


this point in the season, and after
months of downplaying the signifi-
cance of their struggles, members of
the squad have begun to open up
about the disappointment.
"You know, I thought at the be-
ginning of the season that we would
have a better dub than we're show-
ing right now," LaPorta said. "This
is stuff that a lot of people on the
team have never dealt with before,
failure. It's tough, and its something
new for a lot of guys."
But the slugger insists the squad
is talented, hard working and
dedicated to success. The results
just have, for some reason, not come
along.
"We've still got great talent, but
we're just not showing it," he said.
"It'll take time. We've only got four
weeks left though, so it better not
take too much time. We've got to
get on it."
The Gators have 12 games re-
maining on their schedule. Tied for
last in the SEC, they will face a state
of urgency in the coming weeks.
The SEC Tournament invites the
top two squads from both the East
and West divisions as well as four
at-large teams. Due to the parity of
the conference, the Gators are never
more than a couple of games out of
contention and a couple of games
from elimination.
"You know its there," LaPorta
said of postseason elimination. "It's
on the back burner, but we're not
stupid. We know mathematically
what it's going to take to get in."
And down the road from the
conference tournament, the Gators
still have to worry about the pos-


sibilities of the NCAA Tournament.
Last season, the Gators hosted a.
regional and super regional before
advancing to the College World
Series in Omaha.
After UF's struggles this season,
LaPorta is realistic about the team's
chances of the same postseason sce-
nario playing out in 2006.
"Our goal is to take care of
ourselves and control our
own destiny, and that's as
honest and as candid as I
can be. We'll do everything
we can to put ourselves in
the position to achieve our
goals."
Pat McMahon
UF baseball coach

"Hosting a regional would be
pretty difficult, I'm not going to lie
to you," he said. "But we've got to
make it to the SEC Tournament first.
Make it to the SEC Tournament, and
we probably make a Regional and
go on from there."
UF coach Pat McMahon said
he wasn't ready to speculate about
the details of his squads' NCAA
Tournament potential.
"Our goal is to take care of our-
selves and control our own destiny,
and that's as honest and as candid as
I can be," he said. "We'll do every-
thing we can to put ourselves in the
position to achieve our goals.
"Will we achieve those goals? I
don't know. But by gosh, the effort
will be there."


Drew skids out of control during hell-bent Gainesville flashback


APRIL 26, 2056
Iwas 73 and about to die. My liver was
failing, my kidney only worked on odd-
numbered days and I had. to mix my
Corn Bran with chewable Viagra.
But before I met my maker, I wanted to
take one last trip to the site of all that glory and
debauchery. Exactly 50 years to the day after
writing the final edition of Drew's Control,
I returned to Gainesville, capital of the U. S.
since 2017, when Fidel Castro collaborated
with Osama bin Laden and Barry Bonds to
destroy Washington D.C.
I needed a tour guide, so I placed a call to
President Mary-Kate Olsen. She hooked me
up with a familiar face.
"Hey I'm Vernon Maxwell," said UF's most
disgruntled athlete of all-time.
One of the most controversial and tal-
ented players in the first century of UF sports,



Brett Favre will return for a 16th
and final season with Green Bay, ESPN
reported Tuesday. The eight-time Pro
Bowl selection said that the 2006
season would be his last.


Maxwell scored the most points in Gators
basketball history, only to watch his records
vanish faster than Brett Nelson's skills. The
player who once admitted to using cocaine for
a game-time pick-me-up made for a nifty tour
guide in his golden years.
"Our first stop is the Cafe Risque
Coliseum," said Maxwell with his trademark
grin. "It ain't your daddy's Swamp."
Florida Field as I knew it no longer existed.
A retractable roof, bars and booze in every sec-
tion and strippers on the sideline turned the
wholesome stadium into a seedy paradise.
But at least tradition remained UF's
three Heisman winners still had their jerseys
painted on the hallowed walls.
I hadn't seen the third jersey in person.
Just months after I left Gainesville, Chris Leak
stunned the football world by leading the
Gators to an undefeated season and winning


ENBA Playoffs: Grizzlies vs.
Mavericks, TNT, 8 p.m.

N Lakers vs. Suns
TNT, 10:30 p.m.


the Heisman before go-
ing on to become the
greatest running quar-
terback in NFL history.
"It was a damn
shame what happened
Andrew next," Maxwell said.
Abramson "Just as the Gators won
Drew's Control a football and basket-
aabramson@alligator.org ball title in the same
year, men's sports went
on probation across
the board. It turns out ol' Adrian Moss was
a 42-year-old ringer. The NCAA came down
hard."
Suddenly, I felt an uncomfortable thump
on my shoulder. A feeble old man kept poking
me with a cane.
I squinted before finally recognizing the
oversized teeth.


N UF pitcher Stacey Nelson: The freshman
showed her versatility last weekend against
Kentucky. She started in game one and gave
up eight hits and three unearned runs in seven
innings. In the final game, Nelson picked up
the win with 4.2 innings of shutout relief.


"Yeah we went on probation, but we made
out all right," said longtime UF. athletics direc-
tor Jeremy Foley. "After all that talk of whether
we were a basketball or football program,
those girls in spandex made us proud. Florida
was a true gymnastics school."
Maxwell grabbed Foley's cane, demanding
to have his scoring records restored. I sepa-
rated the two old men and darted for the exit.
Realizing I left my wallet in the hotel room,
but desperate to hit up the $10 Value Menu at
Taco Bell, I asked Maxwell to float me a loan.
I begged for two $5 bills, but Maxwell only
had a 10.
That meant using one of those new $10 bills
I despised.
After years of debating whether Alexander
Hamilton deserved his own bill, the U.S.

M UF shortstop Lauren Roussell: In the
series against Kentucky, the junior went
hitless in nine at-bats. Roussell and Lind-
say Norfleet were the only Gators starters
not to reach base in the 2-1 series win
against the Wildcats.

Gold Medal Goodbye


New talent rides in on Lochte's wake i -


By RACHEL ROBINS
Alligator Writer

As they prepare for a photo
shoot, Ryan Lochte and Bradley
Ally stand to the side, joking
around. Lochte picks up a ban-
dage that was on Ally's broken
hand and starts to smell it. He
then sticks the wrapping in Ally's
face and forces him to take a whiff.
The senior and freshman begin to
laugh simultaneously.
After a season full of broken
NCAA, American and world
records, this is how it ends for
Lochte, joking around with his
potential heir.
Ally did something
Lochte also did during his "You
first season at UF: He won
he Southeastern Conference
Vlale Freshman of the Year award.
addition, Ally is a six-time All-
kmerican and has earned a place
n the All-SEC Second Team.
"I think it was a good year for
ne, but there are definitely things I
:an work on," he said.
So now the question for next
eason is how does the UF's men's
swimming team replace a world-
ecord holder who has already
asted Olympic gold?
"You don't replace Ryan
,ochte," Coach Gregg Troy said.
The bottom line is he is the best
wimmer to graduate from UF."
Troy is going to rely on more
ian just Ally to fill Lochte's
oggles.
UF will try to go international
Sfill the void.
Shaune Fraser of the Cayman


Islands will join Ally.
At Bolles prep school, Fraser
broke records in the 100-meter
freestyle division, 200 butterfly
and 500-yard freestyle all in the
17-18 age division. He also repre-
sented the Cayman Islands in the.
2004 Athens Olympics.
Bolles assistant coach Martin
Zubero said Fraser is very versatile
and was the go-to-guy for Bolles.
Omar Pinzon, one of Fraser's
teammates, will also join him at UF.
Pinzon competed for Colombia in
the 2004 Olympics and at 16 won
the 200-yard backstroke at the U.S.
National Championships.
"They are both good," Zubero
don't replace Ryan Lochte.
The bottom line is he is the
best swimmer to graduate from
- Gregg Troy, UF men's swimming coach

said. "How far they take it, who
knows?"
Zubero, a former UF swimmer
and a Spanish Olympian, believes
the Gators train for international
meets harder than any other uni-
versity, an aspect that appealed
to both Pinzon and Fraser.
UF went across the Atlantic
to find its last foreign signee,
Hungary's Roland Rudolf.
Fraser, Pinzon and Rudolf will
join a team already rich with di-
versity and Olympians.
Ally competed for Barbados,
sophomore Darian Townsend
was a member of the South
African team and sophomore
J.B. Walsh represented the


Philippines in Athens.
Olympian or not, having a
sibling on the team can't hurt
either.
Incoming freshmen Clark
Burckle, Kyle Coan and Peter
Hughes will each join a sibling in
the water.
Burckle will swim at the
same school as sister Caroline,
a UF sophomore; Coan with
his brother, Matt, a junior; and
Hughes with his brother, Tim, a
sophomore.
"[There's] nothing better than
having siblings come in and be
able to follow brother or sister
and do a great job and be part of
the Gator tradition," Troy said.
Despite all the new faces in the
fall, a veteran will still be a fix-
U UF." ture in the background.
S Lochte plans on training
in Gainesville and offering
encouragement and men-
toring to the younger athletes,
including Ally.
"Any way I can help the team,
I'll do it," he said.
Lochte will try to make an
impression on UF's new genera-
tion of swimmers just as he has
on Ally.
He said he and Ally go out to
dinner once or twice a week to
discuss a variety of topics.
Ally describes their relation-
ship as "brother-like."
"He taught me how to race,"
he said.
Despite the loss of his aquatic
sibling, Ally believes the team will
be as good, if not better next year.
Troy echoes that sentiment.


SEC Men's Swimmer of the Year, senior Ryan Lochte (left), passes
the torch to SEC Men's Freshman Swimmer of the Year, Bradley AIy
(right), and the rest of the Gators as his college career ends.
He said thst the lineup sans for the Gators?
Lochte has the potential to "Maybe one of these guys be-
score even more points. comes Ryan Lochte," Troy said.
So who knows what's in store

UF readies for rematch


* THE GATORS TRACK AND FIELD
TEAMS WILL PARTICIPATE IN THE
PENN AND DRAKE RELAYS.

Revenge is becoming a common
thought for the No. 24 UF softball team.
Tonight, the Gators have an opportu-
nity to defeat a team largely responsible
for their premature postseason exit last
year.
Bethune-Cookman handed the Gators
their first of back-to-back losses in the
2005 NCAA Tournament. While the
Gators hope for payback, they are also
looking to win their third consecutive
game against in-state opponents.
Still, despite what happened last
year, UF would prefer not to get caught
in an emotional upheaval.
"A little bit back in a couple people's
minds we,_remember last year," senior
second baseman Stacie Pestrak said.
"But they're a different team with differ-
ent coaches and different players, so it's
just like another game."
UF coach Tim Walton also prefers to
forget about the past.
"When you hear Bethune-Cookman,
you don't think powerhouse, but they
play," Walton said. "They did a wonder-
ful job last year. I know they're hungry
to play at Florida. We're equally as hun-
gry.

BUTLER EARNS HONOR: For the first time
in her career, catcher Kristen Butler was
named Southeastern Conference Player


of the Week. She hit two home runs
against Kentucky during the weekend.
"I'm not trying to go hit home runs,
it's just been happening,".Butler said.

BRIAN STEELE

TRACK PREPARES FOR CROWDS: Few
events in the outdoor track and field
season are as big as the Penn Relays in
Philadelphia.and the Drake Relays in Des
Moines, Iowa. Both events held this
weekend feature the best athletes from
around the world.
The Penn Relays
alone have been known
to draw more than 50,000
spectators at times.
"It is a carnival," UF
women's coach Tom
Holway Jones said.
Holloway The Gators will send
their men to the Drake Relays, which start
Thursday and end Saturday. Meanwhile,
the women will participate in the Penn
Relays, which run on an identical schedule.
Men's coach Mike Holloway doesn't ex-
pect his team to view the Drake Relays any
differently than it views other meets.
"They're all just track meets," Holloway
said. "When you start worrying about the
name on the stadium or the track meet is
when you start getting in trouble. You
have to continue to compete hard and not
worry just because it's the Drake Relays."


ANDREW, from page 24

Treasury replaced Hamilton with the
man who led Illinois to 12 BCS football
titles before curing cancer and solving the
world hunger crisis.
"Ron Zook became more than a
prophet," Maxwell said. "He was the true
second coming."
The Zookerwas the Messiah? I had to
escape. Everything I held sacred from my
tenure in Gainesville became a travesty.
Even Lake Alice had been drained after
. Teddy Dupay purchased the land to turn
it into the Dupay Casino and Brothel.
"I shouldn't have come
back," I shouted. "Why? Why?"
I started running as fast as any 73-year-
old man can sprint past the Cafe
Risque Coliseum, the Donovan Dome, the
Casino, until I stopped to catch my breath,
cursing technology, Zook, Foley, capital-
ism and my spoiled pair of Depends.
Then I walked a few steps, glared at
the sun and took a breath of fresh air it
would be my last. I reached in my pocket
for a dose of heart medicine and found
two pills I had never seen. I discovered a
mysterious note in my back pocket:
Take the blue pill and you will return to
your retirement community in Palm Beach,
never remembering this ill-fated trip to
Gainesville. Take the red pill and you will find
out the truth about your existence but be
warned, you might regret what you discover.
I needed that final dose of fulfillment,
so I made the ultimate decision and swal-
lowed the red pill. Within seconds I began
to hallucinate, seeing distorted visions of


Joakim Noah engaged in a thumb war
with Bob Marley.
Then I blacked out, waking up in a
dark, cold, smoky chamber.
I looked up and saw a frail man with a
long white beard wearing a giant visor.
"Am I dead?" I asked before trying
to stand. The force in the room kept me
grounded.
"I am Steve Spurrier, master of the un-
derworld. I sold my soul to the devil back
in the 1960s won a Heisman, a national
title, said a bunch of funny stuff. Well the
devil retired a few years ago, I applied
for the gig. You can't spell Satan without
Spurrier."
Then he revealed another dark secret.
"Drew, I am your father."
Not Spurrier. Not the man I once called
egotistical, a tyrant, part Napoleon.
"Rule the underworld with me,"
Spurrier begged.
"But coach ..."
"Please son, call me dad."
"But dad, I'm a journalist, not a
Satanist."
Could I really pass up this tempting of-
fer? I always enjoyed warm weather.
But then I realized something. I al-
ready had the greatest job in the world.
I sat in the locker room with the national
basketball champs, traveled to Knoxville,
Nashville, Starkville (ouch).
I lived the dream in five years at UF,
not to mention the next 50 years. I could
die satisfied.
"You'll get your own visor," Spurrier
shouted.
Hell, it's better to rule with Spurrier
than serve Zook.

UF estrians prepare for national championship

Equestrians prepare for national championship


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Writer


The UF equestrian club will compete in
the Intercollegiate Dressage Association
National Championship in North Carolina
beginning April 29.
Senior Noelle Shema, who is the cap-
tain, started the Dressage discipline for
the club two years ago when she joined
the team, which has been in existence
since 1983.
"I'm obviously excited," she said. "[The
team] is kind of like my baby. Most of the
team has been with me since the begin-
ning, so it's kind of like the culmination of
everything we worked hard for."
Fellow seniors Jessica O'Neal and Vicky


Bruns and junior Lauren Hunter will ac-
company Shema to the event.
In the Dressage competition, riders are
assigned a horse that they have never rid-
den before and are expected to perform
various maneuvers with the horse in a 60-
by-20 meter rectangular area.
"You have 10 minutes basically to fig-
ure out how to make a horse that you've
never ridden before do all these move-
ments that you need it to do," Shema said.
"You never get to choose the horses you
work with, so you face different challenges
with each of them."
And Shema has experienced plenty of
challenges, including riding a six-month
pregnant mare.
"You feel bad kicking her, trying to get

to get her to bend because you're
like, 'Man, am I brain-damaging

her to bend because you're like, 'Man, am I
brain-damaging that baby?'" she said.
The riders are then judged on how well
they perform each task and are given a
percentage at the end. The riders with the.
highest percentages win the competition.
"It's kind of like you are a personal
trainer at the gym and like the horse is the


member," Bruns said. "You do all these
different kind of exercises to kind of build
up the different muscles in their body."
The team qualified for the champibn-
ship by defeating Central Florida and
Florida State during competitions in the
Gulf Coast Region this year.
Before this year, UF competed against
teams in the Southeastern Region, which
is mostly comprised of schools from North
Carolina and Virginia.
"Obviously, our team bonded a ,ot
more," Shema said.
"Because, shoot, when you're spending
more time in the car driving up there than
you are actually competing, you definitely
get to know the people you're with."
