Hurricanes loom, experts say to stock up
By MELISSA THOMPSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
Floridians are warned to prepare for another chaotic
storm season that may produce between four to six ma-
jor hurricanes, the National Hurricane Center predicted
Monday. But it reports that this season won't be as active
'-.as last year.
--- :". i In the wake of the announcement, UF experts are urging
students to prepare.
t- .Scientists predict there will be 13 to 16 named storms this
season, according to a National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration press release.

Public beginning of National Hurricane Preparedness
SaOfty Week, May 21 to 27.
Although hurricane season begins June 1,
Carol Lehtola, a UF extension agricultural engineering
safety specialist, said students should not wait to buy extra
supplies or devise an emergency plan because hurricanes
can form before the season officially starts.
R. "Hurricanes don't follow the calendar, as we saw last
year," Lehtola said. "Students get wrapped up in school
things and forget about preparing for the season."
Disaster supply kits should include enough water, food
i' and batteries for several days, Lehtola said. In the event of
a storm, students should have a full tank of gas in their cars
and cash on hand, she added.
While purchasing supplies, Floridians can take advan-
tage of the Hurricane Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday,

SG keeps agency trend
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Student Government's newest leaders
campaigned on the promise to diversify SG,
but some of the officials' recent decisions
look like a return to politics as usual.
Four of the five students selected to lead
SG agencies for the next year are members
of the same Greek houses handed the posi-
tions last year. These agencies range from
a speakers bureau to an entertainment
A committee formed of top executives
and student senators made the selections,
and while members said their decisions
were based on applicant quality, one of
their choices perpetuates a legacy almost
two decades in the making.
Andrew Brown, the newest chairman
of the SG speakers bureau Accent, is the
fifteenth member of the Alpha Epsilon Pi
Fraternity to receive the position out of the
past 18 Accent leaders.
Last year, Accent controlled about
$370,000 of student money.
"I feel I'm the most qualified as far as
experience and work-
ing and whatnot," said
Brown, who has worked

Shamu and his finned cousins may

ancestors walked on land using four
legs, according to a UF study released
.After four years of combined genetic
and fossil research, an international

Scientists used developmental data
from contemporary spotted dolphins
and the fossils of ancient whales to solve
the ages-old mystery.
"Early whales look similar to large
dogs," said Marty Cohn, a UF professor

Cohn helped do the genetic research
on the marine animals and said scien-
tists always had the bones to back up
the idea of four-legged whales.
Until now, researchers were unable to
confirm paleontologists' fossil findings

Wedding season kicks off, brings stress
By KELSIE WILSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
As Lori Mutz gives the final
guest list to her caterer, wraps up the
music list for her reception and has
her final meetings with the florist
and the church, she still has more
finishing touches to make her story-
book wedding possible.
"There are so many last-minute
details to my wedding," Mutz said.
"I was so busy finishing up nursing
school that I had to save a lot of stuff
until after graduation."
Mutz, 22, a recent graduate of the
UF College of Nursing, is getting
married to her fiance on Saturday in
her hometown of Lakeland.
Mutz's wedding on the Saturday
of Memorial Day weekend comes
at the official start of the-wedding
season, wrote Gerri Willis, a CNN/
Money contributing columnist, in a
May 2005 column.
"Thousands of couples across the
country will walk down the aisle
between now and September, June
being the most popular month,"
Amber Roberts, 22, a recent grad-
uate from UF's Warrington College
of Business, said that she picked to
have a June wedding because it is
too cold in the winter.
"I got engaged during college
and was going to graduate in May,
so I thought that a June wedding
would be perfect," Roberts said.
Roberts' wedding will take place
on June 17 on St. Thomas, one of the
U.S. Virgin Islands. The wedding
will have only 20 attendants, but her
wedding reception will take place a
month later on July 22 with a 500-
person event in St. Augustine.
Having a wedding during wed-
ding season has its advantages and
disadvantages. For both Mutz and
Roberts, booking venues for their
receptions was the most challenging
aspect of planning their weddings.
"I just decided two days ago to
not have my reception at my par-
ents' house," Roberts said. "Every
banquet hall in Gainesville was
booked for the month of July, so
I had to book my reception in St.
Even though flowers are expen-
sive during the month of May, Mutz
said that the weather and the fact
that most people are out of school
during this time were just some of
the deciding factors for having a
wedding during wedding season.
"Most people are out of school,
so its easier for them to come,"
Mutz said. "People are more apt to
take vacations to travel to the wed-
For those planning weddings,
Paul Rhodenizer, owner and
president of Jay's Bridal & Special
Occasions in Gainesville, advises
that couples allow enough time to
plan a wedding.
"Couples need to set a date first
and figure out where they're going
to get married," Rhodenizer said.
"People don't pay attention to de-
tails such as the church having to
be available the same day as the
Rhodenizer also said that wed-
ding dresses should be ordered
at least eight months in advance,
bridesmaid dresses should be or-
dered six months in advance and
tuxedos should be ordered four
months in advance.
The reason dresses should be
ordered so far in advance is because
most are made in Asia.
Roberts also suggests hiring a
wedding planner to reduce a bride's
stress and to help with wedding
When planning a wedding gets
hectic, Mutz said to think of what
a wedding is really about: the mar-
"Marriage requires commit-
ment," Mutz said. "It's going to be
tons of fun, but there will also be
difficult times. That is when com-
mitment comes into play."

Festival draws bands, businesses
* ABOUT 250 BANDS CONVERGE IN ORLANDO IN
EFFORT TO REACH NATIONAL FAME.
By BRETT ROEGIERS
Alligator Staff Writer
ORLANDO Musicians, industry representatives and
fans flooded the streets and clubs of downtown Orlando this
past weekend for the fifth annual Florida Music Festival.
More than 1,200 artists from across the country applied
to perform at the festival. Submissions were narrowed
down to roughly 250, and eight Gainesville bands made
Among them was Morningbell, a psychedelic rock outfit
that has been trying to secure a spot at the festival for a few
In the middle of Thursday's performance, Eric and
Travis Atria wore the jackets covered in flashing Christmas
lights that have become a staple of the band's live show.
They closed with their cover of The Beatles' "Tomorrow
Never Knows," which climaxes when the Atria brothers
set aside their guitars for collective drumming.
"We feel that the music is strong enough to speak for
itself, or else we wouldn't be doing this," lead singer Travis
Atria said. "But when you're just starting, people need to
have a way to remember you when they leave."
The three-day festival was a big party with

Singer-songwriter Edan Archer found the discussions
invaluable. She dropped out of graduate school at UF to
focus on her music..

to move beyond that, you have to know what's going on,"

Crowds mingle at Thursday's rooftop industry party held
at Sky 60 during the Florida Music Festival.
Seminars and VIP cocktail parties were open to artists
and anyone else that was interested enough to pay at least
$100 for an industry pass.
"It's kind of the first card-swap thing," said Eric
Liebner, bassist of The Edan Archer Band. "Then, when
we get home, it's the follow-up to figure out whether or
not we made the connection."
Ten 13 Concept, the six-piece pop-ska band that opened
last year's Gator Growl, played the Florida Music Festival
for the second year in a row.
"Last year we learned that you have to be really pro-
active and promote your band to these people," said Joe
Loffredo, one of the group's guitarists and vocalists. "It's
the one time during the year they come to you."
This year the band tried to get their promotional DVD
into the right hands. After Friday's high-energy show,
two booking agents expressed interest in working with
them on the spot.
Taking a different approach, Colourslide focused on
meeting bands to trade shows with. Technically, Friday's-
showcase was the band's debut performance. But three of
the four members played the festival twice before with a
different singer under the name Time.
"Every year we seem to be progressing and getting a
better spot," bassist Joe Palmer said.
But after the time spent rebuilding as a new band, they
are working to rekindle relationships and start new ones.
Dear and Glorious Physician's Chase Westfall said
playing festivals is an important part of building a band's

trying to accomplish, they're doing an excellent job," he
said. "It is really well organized, and things have flowed
About 25,000 people attended the event, festival co-
founder Sean Perry said.
"It's all about the music," he said. "As long as the art-
ists get some exposure and all the music fans feel like they
had a great party, then we did our job."
Experts say Senate vote on English will change little
Impact of measure still undefined
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Senators redirected the flow of the im-
migration debate from border fences and
National Guard troops to the adoption of
English as the national language, but some
experts say the effort is based more on poli-
tics than policy.
In a 63-34 vote on Thursday, senators ap-
proved an amendment to the Immigration
Reform Act to set English as the national
Roger M. Thompson, a UF professor of
English and linguistics, said that the Senate's
measure would not make a difference in the
way English is used today.
It will not have an impact in making im-
migrants learn English faster or slower, he
"What is most important is that [this
measure] has little to do with immigration
reform and more with political reasons,"
said Philip Williams, chairman of UF's po-
litical science department.
Political factors aside, many immigrants
learn English for more practical reasons.
Thompson added that people learn
English because it is the language of busi-
ness, and it gives people opportunities to
"What makes English the national lan-
guage is that it is the language that has the
money behind it," Thompson said.
Furthermore, there is a difference be-
tween English being a "national language"
and it being an "official language," said UF
professor of anthropology Allan F. Bums.
Many countries have multiple national
languages, he said. Canada, for instance, in-
cludes both English and French as national
"My reading of the language that
was passed by the Senate is that
these amendments would not
have an effect on any existing
rights currently provided under
U.S. Attorney General
What causes concern is whether the
use of other languages in the United States.
would be allowed under this legislation, he
"Would the use of Hebrew be allowed in
a synagogue?" Burns asked.
But U.S. Attorney General Alberto
Gonzales, the nation's top law enforcement
officer and the son of Mexican immigrants,
said on Sunday that making English the na-
tional language would not change the cur-
rent laws and added that the Senate measure
was purely symbolic.
"My reading of the language that was
passed by the Senate is that these amend-
ments would not have an effect on any exist-
ing rights currently provided under federal
law," Gonzales said.
All immigrants understand they must
learn English to get ahead, Williams said.
For instance, Burns said that he has a
friend in Washington who is a legal immi-
grant, works two eight-hour jobs to survive
and still finds time to learn English.
"[Immigrants] try to learn English even
in conditions you and I would consider dif-
ficult," he said.

SG Cabinet full of
officers, low on results
If there is one thing we've learned during our time at UF, it's
to take the actions of Student Government with more grains of
salt than you'd find around the rim of your average margarita.
Take, for instance, the Student Senate's plan to cut the size
of the SG Cabinet, that group of resume-padding agencies that
shows few results at least until it comes time to reserve a
room and plan a menu for the SG end-of-the-year banquet.
Tonight, the Senate will likely rubber-stamp the bill that
"cuts" Cabinet's size from 44 directors to 22 directors, 13 secre-
taries and five chairpeople a total of 40 people.
A smaller, more responsive SG remains out of reach.
On paper, a larger Cabinet looks like a great thing. Directors
listen to the concerns of regular students and adjust SG policy
accordingly. In reality, Cabinet is a haven for promised and
legacy positions, the meat and potatoes necessary for any
candidate to win election to a Student Body office. We can only
wonder when Student Body President John Boyles and his han-
dlers auctioned off this year's crop of Cabinet seats to powerful
student organizations in exchange for votes.
These legacy positions only reinforce the notion that SG is
impermeable to regular students, for even if they have the quali-
fications necessary, they will likely fall victim to patronage.
At last week's Senate meeting, Boyles assured senators that
none of these new positions have overlapping responsibilities,
but we're skeptical. This is, after all, the same SG that prided
itself on increasing the size of the Cabinet, seemingly tacking on
a new agency whenever a bill went before the Senate. This led
to a Promotions Cabinet, a Public Relations/Publicity Cabinet
and, laughably, an Accountability Cabinet meant to keep wily
SG officials in line.
Instead of pouring money into useless administrative posi-
tions, SG officials should be concerned with saving the money
for their constituents, or at least offering them a few SG-pro-
However, the SG cupboard is bare, at least when it comes to
reserve funds. SG officials cannot keep their hands out of this
rainy day piggybank.
If they're going to spend freely, it might as well be on high-
profile, student-friendly items such as free copies of USA Today
or The New York Times. Or perhaps the new Student Body
executives, all elected under the banner of the Swamp Party,
could deliver on a much-ballyhooed campaign promise: more
free printing across campus.
That said, we support good-faith efforts to dean out the
Cabinet, such as former Student Body Vice President Joyce
Medina's failed plan to whittle its size from 44 directors to 11
secretaries. However, the bill senators will vote on tonight is
only a shell of what Medina proposed.
Medina, who oversaw the Cabinet in her role as vice presi-
dent, said it was too large to function effectively. If her legislative
efforts are any indication, it would appear that Medina's succes-
sor, Lydia Washington, does not seem to share that outlook.
When Medina's bill came before senators in March, there
was heated debate about the role of Cabinet and how much its
size mattered. A week ago, however, senators were unanimous
in passing the Boyles-Washington bill with no debate.
During the campaign, Boyles and Washington told the
Alligator editorial board that they felt SG could do more with
fewer Cabinet officers.
Washington, herself a former Cabinet chairwoman, knows
firsthand about the waste generated by Cabinet. Yet in her first
month in office, she has made only token efforts toward change.
Instead of renovating the house, SG officials are just rearranging
According to SG's occasionally updated Web site, many
Cabinet posts are vacant. Of those that are filled, the directors
are often invisible to regular students.
If SG officials are serious about overhauling the ranks of the
executive branch, they must first realize an important precept:
Less is more.

Guilt unfairly implied in Grapski attack
Editor: Your May 16 editorial on public
records laws and the Machen case contains
a mean-spirited and gratuitous slap at
Charlie Grapski. It is a cheap shot that de-
tracts from an otherwise reasonable state-
ment advocating "strong efforts to hold
public officials accountable for their ac-
tions." The Alligator should hold its edito-
rial staff to a higher journalistic standard.
To state that Charlie "was arrested in
Alachua for illegally tape recording a city
official" presumes his guilt and implies au-
tomatic acceptance of the arresting officer's
charge against him.
Your negligence in reporting even the
bare minimum of facts in this case, which
would at least acquaint your readers with
the context under which Charlie was ar-
rested, makes me suspicious of your mo-
tives in attacking him. You owe hin an
apology, and when he is vindicated, I hope
you will publish it.
I submit that it was the behavior of
Alachua's officials that should be charac-
terized as "questionable" and "childish,"
not that of public citizen Charlie Grapski.
But how could your readers have any
clue about what actually happened when
the only occasion they have to read about
Charlie's Alachua adventure is in this edi-
Those interested in knowing the whole
story should visit The High Springs Herald
Web site, www.highspringsherald.com,

formation here and more to come.
Jacksonville is key to football tradition
Editor: I, would just like to commend
Valerie Prince on what was, obviously,
a perfect suggestion on the direction UF
should be headed with the Florida-Georgia
game. Her points just ring with such strong
reasoning. Of course, the game should
be pulled from Jacksonville. I mean, re-
ally, what value can a tradition or as she
phrases it, "long-practiced custom" really

make absolutely no money from this game,
and even if they do, why should anyone

In fact, I say don't end things at mov-

other senseless profiteers benefiting from
our choices. Let's stop using the Gator for

During 2004, Hurricanes Frances and

coastline, where the highest storm winds are
generally found, Stroh said it is important for
students to secure outdoor furniture and ob-

"Something as little as a trash-can lid can
become a missile in high winds," he said.
Stroh also suggests students talk to neigh-
bors about securing outdoor objects that can
damage their home. Something as simple as

Winners set eyes on Florida crown
By ELIZABETH WATSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
For UF student Amanda Hall and
Spring UF graduate Ashley Hux, the sum-
mer is no time to kick back and relax in the
sun. For these women, it's the final count-
down to the 2006 Miss Florida pageant.
"I have been taking voice lessons all
year." Hall said. "But really, my life of per-
forming musical theater has prepared me
for this pageant."
Hux, 21, and Hall, 18, both competed
and won titles in Gainesville's local pag-
eant, the 2006 Miss University of Florida/
Miss Florida Gator pageant. Hux was
crowned Miss University of Florida and
Hall was crowned Miss Florida Gator. In
the eyes of the Miss Florida pageant, both
titles are equal in value.
With these titles in tow, both women
will travel to Miami this July to participate
in the 2006 Miss Florida pageant, put onby
the Miss America Organization. .
Hux said'she feels honored to represent
UF and Gainesville.
"The Miss University of Florida title
is the most prestigious title in the state,"
"I feel like it really doesn't get better
than these two titles," Hall said.
In a time when pageants are sometimes
regarded as merely beauty contests, Hall
and Hux offer their own opinions about
realizing success in pageants.
"The Miss America Organization
pageants are unlike any other," Hux said.
"They were founded to raise scholarships.
They are not all about beauty, it is just a
small part. They are about your intellect,
your brain, how talented you are and how
caring you are about your cause."
"Being a titleholder is being a business-
woman," Hux said. have won an excess
of $25,000. I have half of my MBA from
Rollins College in the bank. All because of
the Miss America Organization."
Contestants often face stereotypes be-
cause of their pageant participation, Hux
"Stereotypes about pageants stink. I
work hard for everything I receive. You
have to work hard to win titles," she said.

"Where does your inspiration' come
from? For me it was my interests," Hall
said. "I already had a passion for the arts.
That comes through in my platform. I am
using my passion to help others." Hall
added, "You will run into some of the ste-
reotypical pageant girls. But a lot of them
are very driven and talented as well."
Throughout the next school year, Hux
and Hall will fulfill their titles of Miss
University of Florida and Miss Florida
Gator with a series of appearances in the
"I am really looking forward to football
season," Hall said. "Those appearances are
going to be awesome."
Hall and Hux are among seven UF
students and UF graduates participating
in the 2006 Miss Florida Pageant.
The Miss Florida Pageant is July 5-8 at
the Dade County Auditorium in Miami.
The woman crowned the 2006 Miss
Florida will compete in the Miss America
Pageant in early 2007.
.Hux, Hall and the other 38 contestants
must practice and prepare for the various
competitions within the pageant.
"The physical competition in swimsuit
means a lot of trips to the gym," Hux said.

The fourth-seeded UF women's tennis team, re-
garded by coaches around the nation as "the team
with the best chance to defeat Stanford," never led
on any court, at any point, as
they fell 4-0 to No. 1 Stanford in
Palo Alto, Calif.

time Stanford lost, it was a 4-3

UF sophomore Alex Liles fell to Durkin 6-4, 6-0,
to put the Gators in a 2-0 hole.
Sophomore Srebrovic lost in straight sets
to put the deficit at 3-0, before junior Nina
Suvak suffered the clinching loss for the Gators.
Regardless of the outcome, Thomqvist said the 25-2
season has been one he will always remember.
"To see how this team has evolved since January
has been a real joy for me," he said. "Right now we
are all real disappointed. But it's just one of those
situations where you sit back and say, 'Hey, that
team played unbelievable today and we didn't.'"
UF's Boglarka Berecz, Alexis Gordon and
Srebrovic will compete in the NCAA Individual
Championships, which start Wednesday.

Gators finish with series win
By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
Alligator Staff Writer
Senior Chris Woods began and ended a disappoint-
ing 2006 campaign much the same as the remainder of
the UF baseball team did.
With a whole lot to be happy about.
Woods, a graduate of Gainesvile's Buchholz High
School and Santa Fe Community College, received the
somewhat-surprising nod at center field for the season
opener against Cincinnati, and after some gutsy play
Friday night, he was given the honor once again on
senior day Saturday.
Woods singled with two outs in the bottom of the
10th inning Friday his team down by one to set
up a Stephen Barton two-run, walk-off homer. The
play opened the door for the Gators' first Southeastern
Conference series win since March against Arkansas.
And on Sunday, Woods helped kick the door down,
scoring two runs as UF (28-28, 10-20 SEC) defeated
Louisiana State (34-22,13-17 SEC) 10-5 to give the squad
back-to-back SEC wins for only the second time this
"I don't think I could have scripted [the final series]
any better," Woods said. "This season wasn't what we
wanted, but I'm very proud of our guys to show this
amount of heart and put the season away like we did."
Woods said watching the final outs tick away on his
collegiate career and a season ending more than a month
earlier than last year's was emotionally difficult.
"It was tough," he said. "I'm still trying to fight it

Even the Babe would stand to

Ruth was known to be a cigar-

the hits that would have made it a
couple extra feet over the fence if
he had just a little more air in those
tobacco-stained lungs, and you've
got a whole new ball game.
But I digress. If the fans in
California gave Barry an ovation,
it's already taken hold. And I have
to admit that it's no surprise that
fans would eventually overlook
that asterisk, especially if this sets
a precedent, opening the doors of
Cooperstown to this behavior.
