Official: Gators not a threat at Wauburg


By LINDSEY FRANCO
Alligator Writer
Ifranco@alligator.org

Despite a spate of recent
deadly attacks, Florida's real-life
rowdy reptiles may not be. as
threatening as residents think, UF
officials say.
"The alligators are just fine,
nothing new, nothing to be excit-
ed about," said the Bill James, the
director of UF's Lake Wauburg.
"No bleeding out here."
There have been three fatal al-
ligator attacks in Florida during
the last two weeks, but UF experts
said Wednesday there was little
cause for alarm.
Alligators can often be spotted
at Lake Wauburg, a popular recre-
ation spot for UF students.
James said the lake's alligator
population has dropped during
the past decade, because many
alligators have found a new home


at nearby Paynes Prairie.
Alligators prefer the prairie's
shallow, swampy marshes to the
lake's deeper waters, he said.
The lake, located eight miles
south of campus, has a designated
swimming area with barriers to
keep out wayward gators.
"I swim even with my small
daughter, and I don't feel at all
threatened," James
Public said
Safety Before the three
deaths, only 16 fa-
tal alligator attacks had been
reported since 1948, according
to the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
Kent Vliet, a UF biological
sciences laboratories coordina-
tor who specializes in alligator
behavior, said alligator attacks
are rare.
"It's impossible to say that

Board aims at $1B goal


* FOUNDATION HOPES TO RAISE
MONEY BY 2012.

By LINDSEY FRANCO

UF's fund-raising wing has taken
the first steps to raising the more than
$1 billion that university administra-
tors hope will propel UF to the ranks
of the nation's Top 10 public research
universities.
A nine-member council was cho-
sen by top UF administrators to nur-
ture the $1.2 billion campaign, which
they hope will meet its goal in 2012.
The steering council, as the group
is known, will help plan the most
ambitious fund-raising campaign in
UF history.
"To get such a strong group of
people together to help us in this
endeavor is really going to make a
difference," said Carter Boydstun, the
campaign director and UF's senior

associate vice president of develop-
ment.
The campaign is the third of its
kind in UF history. The most recent
campaign, which ended in 2000,
raised more than $850 million.
Heading the steering council are
UF trustee Earl Powell and Wachovia

in their communities," Machen said

Border battle discussed


By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
acancino@alligator.org

Amidst the books, cassettes, videos,
journals and newspapers in the Civic
Media Center, 24 Gainesville residents
gathered Tuesday night to discuss
President Bush's speech on immigration
and their personal experiences with im-
migrants and immigration policies.
"The [issue] is more complex than just
building fences, because it is about hu-
man beings," said Joe Courter, the direc-
tor of the forum.
On Wednesday, the U.S. Senate backed
construction of more border fences and
voted to give.illegal immigrants a road to
American citizenship.
During a speech to the nation on
Monday, Bush outlined several objec-
tives for an immigration reform effort,
including a plan to create a temporary

did not say how much money he would

Some People Have A Lot To Say About
the independent florida


alligator


"Writing columns for The Alligator was a piece
of cake. We had Nixon in the White House, and
each day provided a wonderful new atrocity. It
was a splendid opportunity for a columnist to
learn the value of contempt, ridicule and satire.
It also gave me a pile of newspaper clippings
that continue to scare the hell out of editors
years later."
Carl Hiassen
Columnist
The Miami Herald
and internationally-famous author


"The Alligator made my career in journalism possible. The deadline
writing that I learned at The Alligator allowed me to cover the fall of
the Berlin Wall (for the Baltimore Sun) and other breaking assign-
ments with confidence and professionalism... in fact, the years at
The Alligator actually were the most valuable to me. Without having
covered (UF) Student Government and the (UF) administration, I
could never have tackled the Neo-Nazis of Germany or the Chinese
secret police."
Ian Johnson
Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize
for International Reporting;
Foreign Correspondent,
Wall Street Journal


"More than anything else, the two years I spent at The Alligator pre-
pared me for my first full-time reporting job after graduation. It was
at The Alligator where I learned how a newsroom works and where
I was turned on to the business that I love so much. I can say that
my journalism school training provided me with a strong foundation
for a career, but my deepest roots lie with The Alligator I wouldn't
trade my experience there or all the lifelong friends I made there -
for anything."
Keith Moyer
Publisher
The Minneapolis Star Tribune

"No other experience from college
matched the excitement of The Alligator.
I have enjoyed a rich and full career by
applying skills I acquired at The Alligator
to many different pursuits. I truly owe
The Alligator a debt of gratitude."
Ron Sachs
President
Ron Sachs Communications


"When I went on the hunt for jobs, not a sin-
gle person ever asked anything about my
grade point average ... They wanted to see
my clips. They wanted to hear about my
real-world experience. And The Alligator
gave me all that and much more a sense of
mission and of belonging, an admiration for
the written word, and memories and friends
that will be with me always."
Dennis Kneale
Managing Editor
Forbes magazine


"The Alligator gave me real life, practical experience in both ad
sales and business. It prepared me for the outside world that
awaited. While my friends worked for minimum wage performing
menial tasks, I earned good money, made fantastic contacts and han-
dled thousands of dollars in Alligator accounts. This job is an abso-
lute MUST for anybody who is considering sales as a career choice."

PUBLIC HEALTH

UF staff learns small steps to healthier lifestyles


By JOEY CHINDAMO
Alligator Contributing Writer
National Employee Health and Fitness
Day came to the UF campus for the first time
Wednesday.
The national event, which is always held in
May, included free screenings for blood pressure
and body mass index, and walks at 12:15 p.m. and
5:30 p.m. The program was held at the Living Well'
Center in Yon Hall.
Cassandra Howard, director of the Living Well
Employee Wellness Program, said the event had
never been held at UF before Wednesday.
"It's a great program, and it offers benefits to
both employees and employers," Howard said.
According to the program's Web site, some of
those benefits include enhanced employee pro-
ductivity, reduced absenteeism and lower stress
levels.
About 12 people participated in the health
screenings, and eight people walked at 12:15 p.m.,


Howard said.
Howard described two female UF staff mem-
bers who were excited to participate in the event.
After participating in the 12:15 p.m. walk, both
women committed to walking regularly.
"For their level of regular exercise, this walk
was a great first step," Howard said. "It's all about
starting up and not giving up."
LaTwania Brown was one of two UF staff mem-
bers who participated in the 5:30 p.m. walk. She
decided to participate in the health screenings and
the walk after reading about the event.
"It's very informative to know what state your
body is in," Brown said. "I was also really im-
pressed with all the technology that was used for
the screenings."
Brown, dressed in exercise clothing and car-
rying a bottle of water for her walk, explained in
simple terms why she had decided to participate
ffi the walk.
"It's easy to find friends to eat with but hard to
find friends to walk with," she joked.

Senators approve minor changes in Cabinet's size


* THE SENATE REJECTED A PREVI-
OUS PLAN TO TRIM BUREAUCRACY.

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
liewis@alligator.org

Student Government's executive branch is
on the road to a major overhaul, but its mas-
sive size is not expected to shrink much in the
process.
Without debate, the Student Senate ap-
proved a plan Tuesday night to shuffle vari-
ous offices within the SG Cabinet, handing out


more specific roles to its officials and altering a
few of their functions.
The Cabinet is designed to act as a liaison
between students and SG officials. Under the
newly approved proposal, it will employ 22
directors in charge of programming and 13
secretaries responsible for advisory roles.
The revamped Cabinet layout is intended -
to open up SG, said Student Body Vice
President Lydia Washington, the executive in
charge of the Cabinet.
Student Body President John Boyles, who
wrote the plan with Washington, assured
senators that the measure would also increase


the Cabinet's efficiency.
"None of them really do
; overlap," Boyles said of the
restructured cabinets. "We
went through and specifi-
cally talked about each of
these positions to make
sure it was necessary to
have it."
The current Cabinet
Boyles arrangement employs 44
directors who operate 41 cabinets. Boyles said
he and Washington decided to add a secretary
position in order to specify roles that do not


involve much programming. The secretaries'
main purpose, he added, will be to provide
advice and to oversee policy.
Tuesday night was not the first time Senate
has confronted an effort to reorganize the
Cabinet.
In March, former Student Body Vice
President Joyce Medina attempted to pass a
similar measure that would have reduced the
Cabinet to 11 offices.
However, a majority of Senate members
were critical of Medina's plan, arguing that
it made Cabinet roles too broad. That bill ul-
timately died.


UF RESEARC-

Study targets math fear


By JONATHAN QUIGLEY
Alligator Contributing Writer

Her palms are sweating, her eyes are
hidden and she is pretending to write
diligently. She knows the answer, but her
gut wrenches and her throat crisps as she
anxiously hopes that the teacher will call
on someone else.
One UF study says this is a typical re-
action of shy math students. But perhaps
such students can soon breathe easier: A
study released Wednesday seeks to make
such discomfort a worry of the past.
UF student Paige Allison, who con-
ducted the research for her dissertation
in educational anthropology, used a
name generator that randomly selects
students to be called on as a method to
increase participation in the classroom.
Allison's interest in the study
stemmed from a radio broadcast she had
listened to that had addressed the trend
for math teachers to call on boys more
than girls.
The assertiveness of the boys can at
times overshadow other students in the
class, she said.
To keep the class on track and to cover
more material, teachers will often call on
the students who are more likely to
know the answers. By doing so, quieter
students can slip past without knowing
the material.
Allison conducted her study while
teaching math at a high school in north
central Florida.
Fifteen classes used the generator and


11 did not.
During several focus groups, students
said they were more eager to attend class
and to better prepare themselves, know-
ing that the machine could call on them
at any time.
"My intention is to conduct
this research on a larger basis,
and to continue with the re-
search process."
Paige Allison
UF student

However, the study demonstrated no
significant difference between the classes
that used the name generator and those
that did not, Allison said.
"The significance is that using the
random questioning strategy encourages
students to be more engaged in activities
that are known to contribute to their suc-
cess," Allison said.
The name, generator involves the
bashful students and encourages all stu-
dents to learn through participation.
"These specific results are part of a
larger study that examines the culture of
the mathematics classroom," she said.
Due to her specialty and experience
in mathematics education, she identified
more with the practices of teaching math;
however, she said that does not exclude
the generator from use in other courses.
"My intention is to conduct this re-
search on a larger basis, and to continue
with the research process," Allison said.


Skating shadow
Though SkateWave

nearby, Archer
Braun, 8, chose to
hit the vert ramp on
Tuesday afternoon
at Westside Park.
Braun, who prefers
vert skating to the
street kind, started
S;skating a little less
than a year ago and
practices almost ev-
ery day.

i- .o, ial
Ouch.
At the Department of Darts & Laurels, we've waited a
long time for our moment in the sun. So when our tanned
and toned friends invited us to the coast last weekend, we
decided to cover up the freshman 15 and hang 10.
We didn't count on getting burned.
But bur we did, broiling from ghost-white to devil-red
after just a few short hours beneath Mother Nature's heat
lamp.
Picking at our flaking flesh the next day, we saw that
we weren't the only ones who got burned this week. From
small singes to enormous infernos, we realized our baked
backs and cooked keisters were, at best, trivial.
So fasten your sarong, don a wide-brimmed hat and
slather on plenty of SPF 50 as you read this week's too-
hot-to-handle edition of...



Darts & Laurels

Even though we were soaking in ice water when we
heard the news, our blood boiled. For merely nipping and
tucking instead of trimming the fat, we blow off a hot-air-
always-makes-steam-pour-from-our-ears DART to the
Student Senate, which voted on Tuesday night to "cut"
the number of Cabinet officers. The new arrangement
will include 22 program directors, 13 secretaries and five
chlairpeople, for a total of 40 officials. The current Cabinet
is stuffed with 44.
Though we here at the Department have some restraint,
we can't help but titter when we see the Coppertone logo:
A topless girl looking on as a randy puppy removes her
bikini bottom.
For providing a few moments of furtive amusement
in the skincare aisle, we grease up a thanks-for-making-
rubdowns-more-fun LAUREL to Joyce Ballantyne Brand,
who took a ride on the big Banana Boat to the sky Monday
at age 88. The Ocala artist, who made a name for herself
painting pinup girls, often said the Coppertone girl wasn't
her best work. Or even her most naked.
We imagine Brand was our kind of gal word has
it she liked to unwind with a martini after a long day of
painting.
At the Department, we too like to relax with a few drinks
now and again, despite the wishes of a certain university
president. We've even been known to skirt Gainesville's
draconian open-container laws and imbibe a bit on football
game days.
For their attempt to drain the life and libations
- from a time-honored tradition, we pour an enjoy-your-
Sno-Kones-in-hell DART for UF Athletics Director Jeremy
Foley and University of Georgia President Michael
Adams. Foley and Adams, who usually find themselves on
opposing teams, were in perfect harmony this week when
they asked television networks to stop billing the annual
UF-UGA game as "The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail
Party." The pair hopes the change will cut binge drinking.
If this teetotaling twosome had its way, we wouldn't be
able to cool off with an icy beer after the game or at least
drink away this sunburn's pain.
We're somewhat ashamed to admit that we can get a
little hot under the collar after a few drinks, but even so,
we've never taken the heat this far. For setting his girlfriend
ablaze, we fire up a we-think-you'll-be-the-one-burning-
for-a-long-time DART to Charles "Lester" Parson, whose
former flame died on Tuesday from the burn injuries he
inflicted upon her.
Parson's punishment was swift: He died April 22 from a
blood clot. We imagine he-won't need sunscreen at his final
destination, but it'll be a long time before it cools down.
Kind of like our damned sunburn.

Believe me, this All
t's a little-known fact that Bob Vila yes, the Bob Vila
worked for the Alligator when he went to UF. And it's
a well-known fact that Bob is every American's home-im-
provement hero. And because college students have aspira-
tions of being the idolized American heroes of tomorrow, I
invite you to join our staff at the Alligator.
The Alligator is the largest student-run newspaper in the
country. But we're in need of more employees this Summer
to keep this paper printing and keep me company.
On Friday we are hosting an open house for anyone inter-
ested in getting involved with our operation whether it be
with writing, designing our Web-site, shooting photographs
or drawing cartoons.
And most importantly we're serving free pizza and
drinks. Sorry, the nonalcoholic kind. The open house will run
from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. All students of all majors are welcome
to stop by and learn how to get involved.
Are you a Photoshop fanatic? Then apply to work in our
graphics department to create art to go with our stories.
Do you get giddy over Web design and HTML? We're
looking to expand our online New Media staff. Our Web site
isn't the most snazzy one out there, so we're looking for a few
good geeks with enthusiasm to spruce it up.
Has updating Faceboek photo albums awakened a hid-
den passion for photojournalism in you? Then our photo
department is where you belong.
If you think you can do a better job at writing this column
than I can (and you are probably could) then come down and
apply to write for our Opinion section..
We're looking for all sorts of columnists, whether you
want to speak out on campus issues or bash the Bush admin-
istration. I'm not going to do it I'm a Republican.
If you have an opinion on practically everything, but
don't have the time or desire to write, then apply to sit on our
editorial board. Our editorial board you know, that little
box at the bottom left comer of this page is looking pretty
bare. The editorial board helps make decisions on what the


igator doesn't bite
topics and stances the paper should
take for the weekly editorial, as well
Sas who receives a Dart or a Laurel.
If serious news and opinions
aren't for you, then take a peek at
our weekly entertainment section,
Bridget Carey the Avenue, which appears every
Editorial Notebook Thursday It's where we run col-
bcarey@alligator.org umns on,anything entertainment,
including campus trends.
If you are taking Summer classes
because you failed Spring classes by doodling cartoons in-
stead of listening to lectures, consider drawing our cartoons.
Though his cartoons still appear on Page 6, the infamous
Andy Marlette is no longer a student, and we would much
rather see UF students show off their talent. But if editorial
cartoons aren't what your pen prefers, we are also consider-
ing running humor comic strips in the Avenue.
If you have an enchanting personality and people can't
resist the urge to just hand large sums of money over to you,
then consider working in our business department.
Of course we're also looking for students to write news
stories for us. It makes me sad inside when I have to print
more Associated Press stories than student-written ones.
And I'm no fun when I'm sad.
But even if you know you don't want a job with us, you
can still stop by to say hi. We'd like to hear opinions from
the community on how we are doing and what we can do to
improve our coverage.
But if these reasons don't move you to visit us, then al-
low me one more attempt at convincing you: Free pizza
is American. Coke products are American. Bob Vila is
American. So be patriotic and come to our open house
Friday. There's not much else going on Summer A, anyway.

Gainesville or Athens should host game
Editor: Yes, college is based on the foun-
dation of traditions and rituals, but it's about
time for a long-practiced custom to change.
"The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail
Party" needs to be re-evaluated, not just re-
named. What kind of party includes tragic,
alcohol-related student deaths two years
running?
The UP-University of Georgia football
game, held every year in Jacksonville, in-
cludes a full weekend of excessive drinking
in a small area. The Jacksonville Landing
creates exceptionally unsafe conditions for
students and fans looking to tailgate.
UGA President Michael Adams has kindly
asked television stations and media outlets to
stop referring to the football weekend as "The
World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party." The
name change is a great first step, and I praise
Adams for acknowledging this issue.
This represents a promising strategy to
change the culture of the Florida-Georgia
game, but unfortunately the networks can't.
promise anything. Eliminating the slogan
from the media may not adequately curb the
alcohol abuse or improve the conditions of
this dangerous atmosphere.
As a UF senior prepared to address and
improve public health issues, I propose a
simple solution: Move the game away from
-Jacksonville altogether. Why not alternate the
game between the respective college stadi-


ums? Gainesville and Athens, Ga., both have
the resources and funds to accommodate safe
tailgating for a larger volume of fans. Both
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium and Athens' Sanford
Stadium can hold 10,000 more people than
Jacksonville's Alltel Stadium. This means
more tickets available for students!
Our schools can and should provide
more enjoyable and safe game-day environ-
ments, so why aren't they? Gainesville and
Athens would both benefit from sold-out
home games. The teams and fans would
most likely appreciate home game advan-
tages. Why should the city of Jacksonville
benefit financially from the UF and UGA
football teams? Let them showcase the
University of North Florida intramural
sports teams!
Again, let the hometown cities gain from
the publicity and increased local business
profits. This also means fans would save
from the various travel expenses, including
escalating gas prices, overbooked hotels
and overpriced bars in Jacksonville. Is the
decision to keep the game in Jacksonville
politically or financially motivated? Are the
colleges jeopardizing public safety to make
more money? If so, why are these financial
benefits more important than the safety of
our students?

UF rebuilding after championship bid
Editor: In his "Casey at the Bat" column in
Tuesday's paper, Tim Casey struck out. I am
sick and tired of hearing about how the Gator
baseball team failed to meet so-called high
expectations.
Yes, UF had a great team last year that came
within two games of winning a national title.
But that was last year. Things change. Too bad
the "experts" the quote marks are neces-
sary because I'm using that term quite loosely
- who come up with the four major polls
didn't understand this and simply placed UP
at No. 2 in the preseason because that was the
easy thing to do.
Did they not understand that the Gators
lost their top two starting pitchers, their best
closer, their leadoff batter and leading hitter,
and their slick-fielding shortstop?! And did
Tim Casey not understand this either? If he
had, he would not have expected UF to be
making a return trip to Omaha in 2006.
Just because a team finishes a season
ranked second nationally, you don't put it at
the same spot to start the next one, especially
when its roster undergoes a major overhaul.
Sure, I doubt anybody foresaw such a dras-
tic downfall from 48-23 and ranked No. 2
in 2005 to 26-27 and unranked with one series
remaining in 2006 but any knowledgeable
baseball fan knew the Gators would be hard-
pressed to relive the magic of 2005.
After seeing what happened to the UF

President's plan lacks genuine reforms
Editor: President Bush's prime-time speech
was designed to divert attention away from
the fact that his budget has prevented enough
border patrol agents from being deployed.
The National Intelligence Reform Act,
signed Dec. 17, 2004, included a requirement
to add 10,000 border patrol agents. Bush's 2006
budget only allocated enough money for 210
of them, yet there was enough money to give
tax breaks to the rich and to the corporations
who hire illegal immigrants.
There you have it: the president's true pri-
orities in black and white.
Sending our already-strained National
Guard to the border is designed to put on a
show for the television news cameras.
Think of the visuals. The president can go
down and meet with the new recruits.
But while Bush is busy staging photo-ops
on the border, thousands of uninspected cargo
containers enter our ports every day. They
could be full of immigrants, drugs or nukes.

GATORS, from page 1


Silent journey
About 25 bicyclists ride in silence through Gainesville on Wednesday night to honor those that
have died or been injured on the road. The cyclists rested at the Bicycle Safety Memorial, a
monument commemorating an accident in 1996 that killed two cyclists and injured four. The
sculptures are made of rammed earth and parts of the bicycles from the crash.

there is no danger," Vliet said,
"But the chances of a person be-
ing attacked by an alligator are
exceptionally small."
There are more than 1 million
alligators lurking in Florida's
wetlands, he said, but the state
averages about a dozen report-
ed alligator attacks each year,
few of those attacks are fatal.
However, alligators and hu-
mans frequently cross paths as
development encroaches on the
gators' habitat.

Their appointments were an-
nounced late last month.
"They're volunteers,"
Boydstun said. "They're doing
this because of their strong belief
in the mission of the University
of Florida and the benefits the
university will receive as a result
of this campaign effort."


Boydstun said the fund-rais-
ing push aims to raise money
to recruit and retain top faculty,
support scholarships for first-
generation university students
and strengthen private endow-
ments to support UF's graduate
students.
The council members are
among the first of several thou-
sand donors who are anticipated
to join the drive to meet fund-

The council will meet two or
three times each year throughout


the anticipated six-year cam-
paign.
UF officials have kept the cam-
paign quiet since it began July 1
and plan to announce it publicly
within the next 15 to 18 months
- after it rakes in a cool few mil-
lion of the $1.2 billion goal.
Officials call this the "private
phase" of the campaign. UF will
announce the campaign when it
reaches a level between one-third
or one-half complete.
. "It's quite a. bit away,"
Boydstun said.


1. Don't swim with your dog at Lake Wauburg. It
will attract alligators' attention.
2. Don't jog down Museum Road with your dog.

3. Keep away lakes when alligators hunt for food
early in the morning and late at night.
4. Swim in designated swimming areas.
5. Always be aware of your surroundings.

ing for reporters Monday afternoon that
the president is calling for the use of $1.9
billion toward his proposals. The money
is included in a supplemental budget bill
now before Congress, various news orga-
nizations reported.
At Tuesday's forum, UF student
Charlene Volpe said that Bush's proposal
to-make illegal immigrants pay a debt to
society before legalizing their status left a
lot of room for discrepancies.
"What scares me the most is that I don't
know what ['paying a debt to society']
means," she said.
In his speech from the Oval Office,
the president said that illegal immigrants
who "have roots in our country and want
to stay should have to pay a meaningful
penalty for breaking the law."
"People who meet these conditions
should be able to apply for citizenship,
but approval would not be automatic, and
they will have to wait in line behind those
who played by the rules and followed the
law," Bush added.

Melendez criticized-the construction of a

His comments were directed to a House

two layers of reinforced fencing, as well as
physical barriers, roads, lighting, cameras
and sensors in five specified zones along
the U.S.-Mexico border.
"The 'wall of shame' doesn't send the

Festival honors herigens By SHARON MCCLINTIC

Festival honors heritage


n 1979, Gainesville resident
Nkwanda Jah became con-
cerned that the commu-
nity surrounding Gainesville's N.W.
Fifth Avenue was perceived as an
area prone to drug deals and crime.
At the time, she said, proper-
ties along Fifth Avenue were be-
ing bought and rebuilt, and Jah
faced another concern that the
new buildings would become too
pricey for the members of the com-
munity who had lived in the area
for decades.
Jah and other community
members decided to organize the
first Fifth Avenue Arts Festival in
response to these concerns.
"This was a vibrant business
district," she said. "There were
hotels, restaurants, movie theaters.
There were dubs and laundromats,
furniture stores, cleaners. There
were lots of businesses here."
Festival founders and members
of the Cultural Arts Coalition, di-
rected by Jah, wanted to-provide
information about the area's heri-
tage and the blacks who had settled
there since the 1800s. Many of them
had been former slaves at nearby
plantations.
This information was collected
with the help of a grant given to the
CAC in the 1980s. Jah said the orga-
nization wanted to "talk about the
heritage in a historical perspective"
and, with the grant, was able to hire
researchers to gather information
about the community's past.
Jah said a brochure and a bus
tour of the community were orga-
nized to further this goal.


The CAC is an outgrowth of
the Fifth Avenue Arts Festival. The
organization became incorporated
in 1983. According to the organi-
zation's Web site, the CAC creates
and manages programs for "at-risk
youth," with a goal of directing
them "toward greater personal
growth and responsibility."
One of the CAC's programs,
Girl Power, works to help girls
learn about sex and its repercus-
sions and exposes its participants
to professional women for inspira-
tion. Another program, Gentlemen
of Distinction, provides tutoring
and field trips to boys who have a
history of drug use in their families,
according to the Web site.
What started in 1979 as little
more than a poetry reading and a
single dance performance has now
expanded to include an expected
31 participating groups, including
dance groups, drummers, poets
and visual artists. The Fifth Avenue
Arts Festival has grown from hav-
ing one sponsor at its 1979 event
to having now, in its 27th year, 18
sponsors, according to Jah.
Sponsors include the Gainesville
Department of Cultural Affairs and
Omega Psi Phi fraternity, among
others, and festival events span an
entire weekend.
The festival's growth over the
past 27 years is undeniable, and the
crowd has grown alongside it.
"We've come close to 30,000 in
the past," Jah said, "We're hoping
to increase our crowd at least by
five, 10 thousand."
This year's theme is "Kuumba,

years ago. There are 31 groups expected to perform at this year's festivities.


the Creative Dance." "Kuumba"
is the Swahili word for creativity,
Jah said.
To incorporate the theme of
dance, many dance performances
are scheduled, including dancers
from UF and SFCC as well as lo-
cal dance groups, such as Makare,
Destiny Dance Studio and the
LaVem Porter Dancers.
The LaVem Porter Dancers have


been involved with the festival
since its founding, Jah said. They
were the only dance group to per-
form in the first festival.
There will also be musical
performances by Regina Belle, the
Delfonics and local musicians.
According to the CAC Web
site, the festival is scheduled annu-
ally for the weekend of Malcom X's
birthday This year the event will


be held on May 20 and 21 and will
take place along Northwest Fifth
Avenue, near the intersection of
Fifth Avenue and Northwest Sixth
Street.
An opening reception featur-
ing a performance of the play
"Children of Eden" will take place
at 6 p.m. Friday, May 19 at the A.
Quinn Jones Center, located at 1108
N.W. Seventh Ave.


Hypnotist helps students with memory and attention


By LAURA WRIGHT
Avenue Contributing Writer

'The summer semester is underway, and
with it comes the stress of homework and
studying.
But there is a way to make those long study
sessions in the Marston Science Library seem
effortless: a session with Leonard Umans, a
Gainesville hypnotherapist who has been
practicing for 22 years.
Umans, who has practiced hypnosis in
Gainesville since 1996, said more than half of
his clientele are UF students seeking improved
memory and concentration.
"Basically, I show them a new way of
studying," Umans said.
Umans's clients not only come to his in-

also to stop smoking, lose weight, overcome
long-held phobias and even recall misplaced
personal items, he said.
Umans's rates are reasonable and students

TheAmericanPsychological be hypnotic

otians Explaining the premise
behind hypnosis, he said the
mind is divided into three
parts: the conscious, which immediately ab-
sorbs information; the critical area, which sen-
sors and evaluates it; and the subconscious,
which acts as a permanent memory bank for
information that has been accepted as truth.

A person is hypnotized by bypassing the
conscious and critical areas and dealing direct-
ly with the subconscious mind, which believes
everything it is told, he said.
Once a client is hypnotized, he or she
is given positive suggestions. For instance,
Umans said, he repeats, "I am a non-smoker
and a fresh-air breather," to those clients who
are determined to quit smoking.
Xenothon Stelnicki, a UF graduate, said he
believes in the power of hypnosis. He was first
hypnotized when he was in elementary school
and continued to see a hypnotherapist up un-
til his early teens.
"I know my habits changed for a while,"
Stelnicki said. "As far as school and stress, it
really helped. I was 15 when I finished high
school."

Films set to hit theaters


By JORDANA FYNE
Avenue Writer
Four Films They Won't Let You Miss
"The Da Vinci Code" May 19. For those
not ready to part with Dan Brown's novel, the
controversy lives on in a poofy-haired Tom
Hanks as he unravels a mystery hidden in the
works of Leonardo da Vinci.
"X-Men: The Last Stand" May 26. This
highly anticipated final chapter in the tril-
ogy promises to go out with a literal bang
as mutants take on humans in a war to end
all wars. For everyone else, it's worth seeing
for a furry Hugh Jackman and spandex-clad
Halle Berry
"The Devil Wears Prada" -June 30. Anne
Hathaway and Meryl Streep sizzle in the
adaptation of Lauren Weisberger's popular
novel of a young journalist (Hathaway) being
tortured by one of Manhattan's most notori-
ous magazine editors (Streep). Hopefully the
film fleshes out a bit more substance in the
flashy fashion world than the book did.
"Superman Returns" June 30. The
man of steel has returned, and just in time.
Brandon Routh assumes the role of the mild-
mannered Clark Kent, but can he live up to
Christopher Reeve's legacy? Routh will have
to man the blue tights, stop Lex Luthor and
win back Lois Lane just to remain up to par.


Three Films You Shouldn't Miss
"A Prairie Home Companion" June
9. A backstage look at the last broadcast of
America's favorite live radio variety show.
If a country-singing Meryl Streep and Lily
Tomlin don't exactly push your buttons,
stayed tuned in for a breakthrough perfor-
mance from Lindsay Lohan.
"Strangers with Candy" July 7. A
prequel to the television series of the same
name, "Strangers with Candy" follows 47-
year-old ex-junkie/prostitute Jerri Blank
(Amy Sedaris) as she moves back home with
her comatose father and re-enrolls as a fresh-
man inhigh school. With a variety of celebrity
cameos from Steven Colbert as a closet homo-
sexual to Sarah Jessica Parker as a horny grief
counselor, this comedy is already rumored to
be the cult movie of 2006.
"A Scanner Darkly" July 7. From the
author of "Minority Report" comes this in-
novative, sci-fi thriller starring Keanu Reeves,
Woody Harrelson, Robert Downey Jr. and
Winona Ryder in an America where the war
on drugs has been lost, and the government
spies on itself in the name of national security.
The film is shot in a groundbreaking new ani-
mation that looks like they loaded the entire
reel into Photoshop and clicked "paint," blur-
ring the line between reality and fantasy that
much more.

Deciding when to call it quits


A 11 good things must come to an end."
But the question is, when?
SJust as it's often hard to declare ex-
actly when a new relationship officially began,
it can be even harder to decide when it should
end.
While no one really wants to expe-
rience a break-up, there comes a point Maghan
when one or both parties eventually
realize that chances are, you will.
Although some people claim to
resist "getting attached" to avoid that'
inevitably messy and painful down-
fall, I subscribe to the theory that says
it's better to have loved and lost than
to have... you know how it goes.
As you might infer, Dearest and I discussed
the future the other day.
We acknowledged that we both tend to stay
too long in relationships that are admittedly
less fun than they once were.
It's always tempting to tell yourself that
even a rocky or uninspired romance is better
than none, and that breaking up is such a shock
to your system (and to your life) that it's easier
to stay together.
It's also hard to distinguish a "rough patch"
from "the beginning of the end," and, unfortu-
nately, I've got no answers for you on that one.
What I do have, however, are plenty of ques-


I'
M


tions.
When you realize that you will likely not
be with this person forever, why do you stay
together?
I've heard that women date men that are
completely wrong for them so by the time "Mr.
Right" comes courting, they'll have
lcDowell experienced everything they know
they don't want.
I've also heard that it takes double
the time you were with someone to
get over them.
Is it better to terminate the relation-
ship with one clean, brave "goodbye"
as soon as it becomes apparent that
the law of odds has won?
My cousin is that way, and she could never
understand why I wasted my time on some-
thing I knew was over.
Or is it less painful to drag things out, alien-
ating and hurting each other until, before you
realize it, you're not even jealous of his sexy
coworker?
For the time being, I'd much prefer to be
with him than without him. Besides, the sum-
mer provides a break of time apart when we can
both evaluate our lives separately.
Stay tuned for another semester of "Sex on
the Avenue." Hopefully I'll even provide a few
answers!

DVDs curb TV dry spell


he days are getting warmer, clothes
are getting skimpier and Archer
-- Road is (mostly) navigable.
It must be summer in Gainesville.
And for many, that's a good thing.
Movie buffs have the summer blockbusters
to look forward to, and the self-proclaimed
gamer subculture is still salivating over the
screenshots released at the annual Electronic
Entertainment Expo. Beach-lovers
have a three-month stretch of near- Joe
perfect weather for swimming and
surfing.
But for those who would prefer
sitting around their apartments and
partaking in some surfing of the
non-marine variety (that's chan-
nel surfing-itfs a pun), summer
means a veritable dry spell from May through
September-a hodgepodge of reruns and
Discovery Channel specials.
So after the sure-to-be-enthralling two-hour
season finale of "24," and the inevitably mad-
dening twist to which viewers will no doubtbe
subjected at the end of "Lost" next week, when
networks will try to reel in the numbers with
the biggest surprises and most exciting epi-
sodes of the season, the warm glow of network
television will essentially turn cold and sterile.
Luckily, thanks to the wonders of capital-


ism, we have the blessing of corporations look-
ing to make money off of the same product as
many times as possible.
Thus, I present to you DVDs you might
want to buy to fill whatever void you might be
feeling between now and September.
"Scrubs." Before everyone collectively de-
cided that "The Office" was the funniest thing
since the phrase "ORLY," there was "Scrubs."
It has consistently achieved the
Hunter highest caliber of hilarity for nearly
five years. And season three just
came out on DVD.
"Boston Legal." A direct spin-off
of the hit law show "The Practice,"
"Boston Legal" offered interest-
ing cases, well-written stories and
William Shatner. Could you ask for
anything more? The inaugural season will be
released on May 23.
"Da Ali G Show." Despite being a couple of
years old, this show is a good investment for
any fan of sarcasm and deception. Sacha Baron
Cohen interviews unsuspecting Americans as
one of three quirky characters. The results are
both hysterical and terrifying.
Of course, great quality can be found in
any volume of "24," "Six Feet Under" or "The
Sopranos." Also, apparently people still watch
"The OC" and "Gilmore Girls." Go figure.

STUDENT LIFE

UF grad teaches and tours


By SHEM FLEENOR
Avenue Writer

He lives a double life.
By day, he fills his seventh-grade classroom
with the sounds of squeaks from his dry-erase
marker as he scribbles equations across the
whiteboard.
By night, he fills the air with unique, sooth-
ing guitar riffs and throaty, harmonic vocals.
His songwriting expresses elements of folk
music with various time signatures.
As a math teacher at Cocoa Beach Junior/
Senior High School, he finds that his two lives
overlap.
"My students are always asking questions
about the band, while I'm desperately trying to
turn their attention back to the lesson at hand,"
he said. "I don't even tell them. They just seem
to find out about it."
Known as Mr. Choi to his students but just
as Jason to everyone else, he earned a bache-
lor's degree in computer engineering from UE
His desire to make music partly dictated
his decision to move into teaching.
"The time demands of being a teacher make
it really hard to play music, but if I couldn't
find a job, I couldn't have afforded to make my
new album," Choi said.
On June 8, his debut album "Leave The
Night Behind" will be released from Choi's
own record label, Team Grizzly.
Choi's talent and humble demeanor have
gained him a reputation as one of the most re-
spected performers in Florida's thriving indie
rock scene.


Choi's musical ingenuity has influenced
several indie bands, including Gainesville's
own Clock Hands Strangle.
"I think Jason really has it," said CHS front
man, Todd Portnowitz. "There's a ton of life in
his music."
Gainesville broadened Choi's musical per-
spective. He was influenced by Death Cab for
Cutie, Cursive and Jets to Brazil, all of whom
toured through Gainesville while Choi was an
undergrad.
"Living in a college town gave me the op-
portunity to go see some of the bands that
helped me move on," Choi said. "It was really
inspiring to be able to watch musicians who
were doing things I never thought of before."
He has fond memories of Gainesville's
music scene. On the same street, a few nights
apart, he could see an eclectic blend of artists.
This summer, while kids across Florida
head to the beach, Choi will be on tour. He
expects to play in 20 cities in 22 days.
He looks forward to the seemingly endless
days on the highway.
"The only real problem to worry about is
not getting enough gas money to get to the
next city. Aside from that, I get to play music
all the time, which is my favorite thing in the
world," he said.
Choi played in Gainesville four times
last year and will perform on July 7 at the
Shamrock. On Friday, Choi is performing
at the Florida Music Festival in downtown
Orlando.
"It's definitely an honor to be chosen to
play," Choi said. "I feel both grateful and ex-
cited."

Seniors focus on final series


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

The UF baseball team is
down and out, the Southeastern
Conference Tournament now of-
ficially out of its grasp, an NCAA
Regional probably beyond its
reach.
But this weekend, McKethan
Stadium will still at least par-
tially fill, the lights will come
on, and nine seniors, who over the
years have seen the best and worst
of Gators baseball, will take their
home field for the final time.
UF will face Louisiana State


this evening at 6:30, as well as
on Friday and Saturday a de-
parture from the typical Friday
through Sunday weekend sched-
ule. The series will be the team's
final.
"I think [the seniors] are
just disappointed right
now, and it's kind of frus-
trating to talk about."
Stephen Barton
UF designated hitter

UF's seniors have faced an ugly
final year, dropping to dead last in


Bryan Ball and his fellow seniors will take the field at McKethan
Stadium for the final time this weekend.


the SEC and facing the possibility
of a final overall record under .500
for the first time since 1990.
"It's got to end one day, and
I've been here a long time," senior
designated hitter Stephen Barton
said. "I think [the seniors] are just
disappointed right now, and it's
kind of frustrating to talk about."
Senior Daniel Brooks never
even saw the field, suffering a sea-
son-ending injury before opening
day. Right-handed pitcher Bryan
Ball, the only holdover from last
year's starting rotation, began his
final year strong but faded down
the stretch, dropping his final five.
And Darren O'Day, a senior
who has long stood as the Gators'
put-away closer, often found
himself doing a lot more damage
control than dosing.
But O'Day, like many of his
fellow veterans, can at least step
back and appreciate his final home
stand for what it is, a culmination
of multiple years of work, not an
indictment of a failed season.
"This season is definitely a dis-
appointment, but I think overall I
couldn't have asked for more or
a better experience than I've had
these past four years," O'Day said.
"Even this year, while the winning
and losing part hasn't been up to
par, I think everyone has enjoyed
the season."
O'Day was certain, however,
that the emotions of his final ap-
pearance wouldn't influence his
performance.
"As soon as you get emotional
on the mound bottom of the
ninth with two strikes and you try
and throw it 110 mph -- it never
works out," he said. "I know from
experience."
"As emotional as it will be,
that will only play a factor after
the game."
And maybe there's more riding
on this last series than the feelings
and emotions of a few seniors.
The Gators won the first series
of their SEC schedule against
Arkansas in March. A sweep or
even taking two of three from the
Tigers this weekend would book-
end 2006 with positives, giving the
faint glimmer of a silver lining to a
team with few results to smile at.
And although highly unlikely,

NCAA deja vu:


Gators vs. Bruins


* UF AT STANFORD FOR
ROUND OF 16.

By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Staff Writer

UF and UCLA are set for a
rematch.
This time around, the battle
won't be fought on the hard-
wood. Instead, the two schools
will clash on the hard courts
at the Taube Tennis Center in
Palo Alto, Calif., at 6 p.m. for a
chance to advance to the quar-
terfinals of the NCAA Tennis
Championships.
Like most of the teams left
in the tournament; the Bruins
haven't played the Gators this
season. But UF women's tennis
coach Roland Thorqvist said
there won't be any surprises.
"Fortunately, there's not a
whole lot of new players this
year," Thornqvist said. "I think
we have a pretty good feel for
our opponents."


Thornqvist was able to
get a glance of UCLA's play-
ers at the Freeman Memorial
Tournament in Las Vegas in
January. although Nina
Suvak, Alex Liles, Keri Robison
and Boglarka Berecz were the
only UF players to compete
there.
. Suvak said there are so
many tournaments throughout
the year that
players from
Women s other schools
Tn 1 are familiar
'Te n is' with each other.
"All through
juniors and
growing up, you see the same
players at every tournament,"
Suvak said. "Every so often
you see someone you're not
familiar with.
"In those cases, our coaches
will find out about them. But
when it comes down to it, you
just have to play tennis."

Pitchers struggle with


no run support in 2006
game only has nine innings, and the paper only has so many
pages. I could write a book about the UF baseball team, but it
wouldn't all fit in a week's worth of Alligators.
So in Tuesday's column, I felt like I left my point hanging. While
there were high points this season, even the team's unity couldn't
overcome the game's finer points, like scoring.
Specifically, the offense rarely strung to-
gether a few base hits so that the lineup could
operate like the run-scoring machine that it
should be. Each player has the talent and skill
to excel; however, confidence often led to tow-
ering fly outs or swift strikeouts.
Tim Casey Losing hurts, but the Gators have avoided
m sey the internal quarrels that can destroy the
Casey at the Bat team.
tcasey@alligator.org The team is built on pitching and defense.
The offensive game plan is to work lengthy at-
bats to wear down the opposing pitcher.
UF coach Pat McMahon is disgusted when a player avoids be-
ing hit by a pitch, the easiest way to get on base. Gavin Dickey and
Matt LaPorta lead the team in home runs and times being hit by a
pitch, proving that power hitting and unselfishness are not mutually
exclusive.
McMahon also speaks about the importance of body language.
When the Gators are trailing and frustrated, some players slump
their shoulders and plead to umpires. This emboldens the opponent,
who delights in knocking off the mighty Gators.
The pitching staff has shown leadership by example. The irony

UF tees off as NCAA top seed


Four Gators receive honors


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer

The No. 3 UF men's golf
team begins competition today
-in the NCAA West Regional
Tournament at the Tucson
National Golf Club in Tucson,
Ariz.
The Gators were selected as
the top seed in the tournament
and will be competing against
seven teams ranked in the top
25.
"The No. 1 seed is based
on what's been accomplished
throughout the season," UF
coach Buddy Alexander said.
"I think that's a compliment
and a tribute to how we've com-
peted."
The Gators have been compli-
mented a lot in May, as several
members have earned one honor
after another.
And another.
And another.
And now the team is trying to
add a regional championship to
its trohpy case.
Senior Brett Stegmaier
was named the Southeastern
Conference Player of the Week
on May 1 after his champion-
ship performance at the SEC
Tournament during April 21-23.
The win was only the second of


Stegmaier's career at UF, his first
coming in the SEC Tournament in
his freshman year.
Four days later, the Southern
Golf Association named
Stegmaier the Co-National
Amateur Golfer of the Month for

"The No. 1 seed is based-
on what's been accom-
plished throughout the
season. I think that's a
compliment and a tribute
to how we've competed."
Buddy Alexander
UF golf coach


April. Stegmaier shared the hon-
or with Georgia Tech's Cameron
Tringale.
Not to be. outdone by his
teammate, fellow senior Matt
Every became the first golfer in
UF history to win the prestigious
Ben Hogan Award, which is pre-
sented to the nation's top men's
golfer from NCAA Division I,
II or III, NAIA or junior college
based on collegiate or amateur
competitions results.
Every was one of 20 golfers
named to the Ben Hogan watch
list in March and survived two
elimination rounds in order to


be named a finalist for the award
with Oklahoma's Anthony Kim
and Georgia's Chris Kirk.
"Whenever you're in an
award ceremony like that, you
always expect to hear the other
guy's name called," Every said.
"I was just listening for the first
letter of the name called, and
when I heard the 'M,' I knew it
was me. To be honest, it's a relief
that it's over."
The duo, along with two other
UF golfers, earned Al-SEC hon-
ors. Stegmaier, Every and fresh-
man Billy Horschel were named
First Team All-SEC, while senior
James Vargas was named Second
Team All-SEC.
"To be really honest, James
Vargas was probably a border-
line first team," Alexander said.
"As for Matt, that is very, very
special. I'll remember that for
many, many years, as I'm sure he
will, too.
"I'm very proud of these
guys."
But the accolades won't make
the Gators complacent.
UF must place within, the
top ten teams at the tournament
in order to clinch a-spot at the
NCAA Championships begin-
ning May 31.
"We're not looking at the No.
10 spot," Alexander said. "We're
looking at the No. 1 spot. We're
just trying to be the best."

is that pitching was regarded as the Gators'
primary weakness entering the season.
Sophomores Josh Edmondson and Bryan
Augenstein have been outstanding. Junior
lefties David Hurst and Stephen Porter
could be lured to the pros after following the
McMahon philosophyb-f inducing ground
balls and not allowing walks. Freshman
pitcher J.K. LaCoste has improved and
Chas Spottswood and Jarrod Langlois have
shown tremendous talent.
Darren O'Day has been intimidating
in his closer role; unfortunately, he didn't
get opportunities because closer gener-
ally don't pitch when their team is losing by


more than a couple runs.
O'Day and Bryan Ball have carried
the torch that Tommy Boss and Connor
Falkenbach passed, displaying a strong
work ethic and desire to win.
Ball was arguably the best pitcher in the
SEC for the first half of 2005, before a sore
arm cost him some starts.
The Gators were shut out in three of Ball's
14 starts, held to two or fewer runs EIGHT
times in 14 starts. Of the 60 runs allowed by
Ball, 12 were unearned.
Ball has lost his last seven decisions, and
St. Patrick's Day was the last time the Gators
won a series.
It's difficult to earn a win when the of-
fense doesn't score any runs to support the
pitching.


LaPorta eyes home run record


BASEBALL, from page 22

UF can still work itself into an NCAA
Regional with a powerful performance
this weekend.
In 2003, the Gators failed to make
the SEC Tournament and a regional bid
seemed unlikely.
L ..,, = Instead, the selec-
,:;-,- -~ i tion committee pulled
a surprise and a team
already departed for the
summer headed back to
Gainesville.
"There's always a shot," O'Day said.
"I remember a few years ago when
I was down at my parents' house in
Naples, and they had to call us back."


"I think I was out on the golf course,
so I finished my round, and then I came
home."

LAPORTA AT 54: Entering the final
series, UF first baseman Matt LaPorta
finds himself just one home run shy of
Brad Wilkerson's school career record
of'55.
LaPorta was injured for several
weeks just before the Gators began
their conference season, but the slug-
ger rebounded and has since been
swinging with the same power that
bought him the 2005 NCAA home-run
title.
The junior nailed two homers
against Alabama last weekend to bring
his season total to 14.

Gators set to host regional tourney


By CHRIS WHITE
Alligator Staff Writer
cwhite@alligator.org
The table is set as the Gators prepare
to host the most crucial party of the sea-
son this weekend, an NCAA Regional
Tournament.
"This is adrenaline. This is excite-
,%


ment. This is playing for the pride of
your school," senior outfielder Linsdey
Cameron said. "This is it -- crunch
time."
The double-elimination tournament
begins Friday afternoon with games at
2:30 and 5:30.
Friday's winning teams will face
each other Saturday at noon, and the


Senior catcher Kristen Butler was named the Southeastern Conference
Player of the Year.


pair of losers will meet at 2:30 that after-
noon. The loser of the first game of the
day will then be paired with the winner
of the second game at 5.
The remaining two teams will com-
pete for the regional title Sunday at
noon.
South Florida (47-23) and North
Carolina (48-17) will open the weekend
Friday at 2:30 p.m.
Afterwards, the Gators are slated to
make their first appearance at 5 p.m.
against Florida Atlantic (33-23), a team
they trounced 9-1 in February.
However, Florida Atlantic finished
the season strong, going 9-1 in its final
10 games and capturing the Atlantic
Sun Conference Softball Championship,
so the Owls willbe no pushovers for the
Gators.
"You don't want to underestimate
anybody," Southeastern Conference
Player of the Year senior Kristen Butler
said. "We're just going to have to -take
care of our business and do our jobs and
come out on top."
The Gators also won their last game
against North Carolina in 2003 and went
2-0 against South Florida this season to
finish 42-23 (17-13 SEC) and pick up the
No. 16 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
But Cameron said the Gators aren't
looking for easy wins.
"We're definitely just looking at one
game at a time," Cameron said. "The
past is the past, and these are all good
teams."
The Gators took their own slice of
humble pie in an early exit from last
weekend's Southeastern Conference
Tournament in a 6-0 loss to Tennessee.
But they said that wouldn't affect their
performance this weekend.
"We don't feel bad losing to a team
like Tennessee," freshman outfielder
Kim Waleszonia said. "We went one
and out, but we faced some of the best
competition in the country."
UF coach Tim Walton said he was
relieved that the Gators earned a tour-
nament bid in Gainesville, but even that
won't give the team an edge.
"When it comes down to it, after the
first couple innings when everyone's
nerves settle down, I don't know that
we have an advantage," he said.
"These are all good teams, and I
think it'll just come down to who settles
into the game the quickest, not who's
home or away."
Cameron said she was happy to be
home, too, but she had a different reason.
"It's exciting to not have to live out of
suitcase," she said.

Gators to face No. 2 seed Pepperdine in NCAA men's Round of 16


TENNIS, from page 22


UF is 11-6 all-time versus UCLA,
including a 5-3 record in the NCAA
Championships. The last time the Gators
and Bruins squared off was a 4-3 UF win
in the quarterfinals of the 2003 National
Indoor Championships.
Thorqvist said he doesn't need to do
background checks against the Bruins.
Other schools, however, could pose some
problems.
"I'nfrvery involved in what's going on
within the game," he said. "But if a situa-
tion arises where we are not familiar with


the players, I'll have to get on the phones."
If UF defeats the Bruins, it will play
the winner of the Baylor-Vanderbilt
match Friday. The tournament will take
a break Saturday, and the semifinals and
finals matches will be held Sunday and
Monday.
Not only are the Gators going to see
some different faces, they will be seeing
some different places.
UF hasn't played a road match since the
team traveled to South Carolina on April
15. The Gators look forward to the large
crowds expected in Palo Alto.
Berecz, a member of the 2003 national
championship UF team, said this year's

tions we seem to pull it out."

squad thrives in tough situations, just like
the 2003 team did.
"Whenever we have tough situations,"
Berecz said, "we seem to pull it out."
MEN'S TENNIS: The UF men's tennis team
is set to take on a team that hasn't lost to
anyone ranked outside No. 2.
The Gators will see how far they've


come since their midseason struggles
when they match up with second-seeded
Pepperdine in the Round of 16 of the
NCAA Tournament at the Taube Tennis
Center in Palo Alto on Saturday at 3 p.m.
UF coach Andy Jackson said teams
shouldn't overlook the Gators, who have
won eight of their last nine matches.
"We still feel like we can beat anyone
in the country," Jackson said. "We came
within a point of defeating [No. 1] Georgia
at their place.
"We beat Baylor at their place. We are
getting healthier and gaining confidence.
When our guys go out there, they don't
think they're going to lose."
