of new life
By MINDY MORRIS
Alligator Contributing Writer
If you were counting on a
smaller Reitz Union lunch crowd
this Summer, think again.
Almost 6,000 incoming fresh-
men, along with many of their
families, will be attending Preview
sessions this summer.
With their orange lanyards,
canvas bags and trailing parents,
they're easily recognizable.
"When they first get here they
are almost always either over-
whelmed or really excited," said
Vida Tavakoli, Preview staff mem-
ber. "Most of the time, it's a little
bit of both."
During the course of the two
days that students participate in
Preview, they will learn how to
navigate ISIS, register for classes
and declare their major.
"I kind of feel like I am being
thrown into everything," said
Ashley Rogover, a graduate of
East Lake High School in Tarpon
Springs. "But I think that is how
For many, however, the hectic
pace of Preview means that they
are one step closer to beginning
their life at UP.
"I have wanted to come here
since I was a little kid," said Peter
Alvarez, a graduate of Santa Fe
Catholic High School in Lakeland.
Preview is the first taste many
families have of the freedom that is
to come for their freshman. From
the beginning of the session, the
SPreview staff members work hard
to promote independent decision-
making on the new student's part.
"We try to encourage the stu-
dents to choose their own sched-
ule, because a lot of times we see
parents suggesting classes that in-
terest them and not their children,"
After a brief welcome session,
which the families attend together,
Jen Harnish / Alligator
Jessica Taylor and her father, Keith Taylor of Crystal River, help them-
selves to the buffet at Broward Dining Center during their Preview
visit to UF.
the students are divided into small
groups. This allows students to get
to know each other, as well as giv-
ing them a chance to talk to advis-
ers and Preview staff members on
"I've been really impressed by
everyone that has talked to us,"
Rogover said. "They have all been
really prepared, and they know
what they are talking about."
There are workshops and in-
formation panels lined up for the
students and their families until
9 of the first day. While some ses-
sions, like the address from the
vice president of student affairs,
are designed to reach everyone,
others are specialized.
There are two afternoon ses-
sions, which allow students to
meet with representatives of the
colleges in which they are most
Rogover, who is interested in
pursuing a career in health sci-
ences, chose to attend the sessions

and Sciences, as well as an infor-

Senators call on
UF for hot line
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
The weekly Student Senate meeting proved stormier than
usual Tuesday night, as lawmakers urged the university to set
up a hurricane hot line and the Senate's top official resigned.
The proposed storm hot line would give students a reliable
way to find out about cancelled classes and
emergency plans, said Sen. Ryan Nelson,
who wrote the resolution.
Although UF operates a "rumor control
hot line" at (866) UF-FACTS, the number

Good as Gold: Professor wins award
By RACHEL B. ANDERSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
Sometimes researcher and inventor Dr.
Mark Gold's best ideas come in the middle
of the night. He never knows exactly when
an epiphany will strike, but the familiar feel-
ing always directs him to the trusty pad and
pen kept at his bedside.
"I still feel like I'm solving problems
when I'm sleeping," he said.
And those midnight scribbles have led to
life-saving discoveries on drug addiction.
An internationally acclaimed drug ad-
diction expert and a distinguished professor
at UF's McKnight Brain Institute, Gold's re-
search on drugs like methamphetamine are
leading to groundbreaking discoveries.
On Monday, the National Association
of Addiction Treatment Providers honored
Gold for his 30 years of research, present-
ing him with the Nelson J. Bradley lifetime
achievement award. He shares this honor
with well-known figures such as former
President Gerald Ford.
The UF alumnus, a native of New York
City and a husband and father of four, has
consulted with several U.S. presidents on
national drug policies, and he regularly ad-
dresses members of the European Union and
the United Nations.
"I wasn't really prepared for the impact
[the award] would have on me," Gold said,
his blue-and-white checkered shirt and
Gators tie barely visible under his lab coat.
As he eased back into his chair, Gold
tried to put words to the emotion he felt at
the award ceremony. For the first time in his
life, he was introduced to recovering addicts
who had directly benefited from his work.
"I wasn't really prepared for the
impact [the award] would have on
Dr. Mark Gold
Gold said the award only further drives
him to continue research in his current proj-
ects, all of which he says should significantly
impact the future.
Some of these current projects include
learning the possible "secondhand" effects
anesthesia can have on the brains of those re-
maining in the room after a patient is injected
with the drug.
Gold said he is finding that anesthesia
can actually travel into the open air from out
of a patient's mouth, a possibility that was
before deemed implausible.
Gold has also begun to find ways to re-
verse drug-induced brain damage, and he
continues to develop new treatment meth-
ods for recovering addicts.
Gold is known for much more than his
work, though. He is loved and admired by
his colleagues and students for his genuine
heart and humor.
"He's definitely a character," said Wayne
Goodman, chairman of the brain institute's
psychiatry department where Gold is chief
of addiction medicine.
Gold is an energetic, fun-loving person
- someone who never yawns and has an
amazing work ethic, Goodman said.
"He's always generating ideas," he said.
"A lot of times I can't keep up with him."
Brian Fuehrlein, a UF doctoral student
earning an academic medicine degree, said
Gold is simply a "friendly guy."
"When you go to the [Gators] basketball
games and see him, he stops and talks to
everybody," Fuehrlein said, adding that
"everyone knows him and everyone wants
to come up and say 'hi.'"

A high-ranking UF official has decid-

Mike Rollo, UF's longtime associate

right fit," FCGU spokeswoman Susan

loss, but we're just delighted he'll be
here with us."
Aside from the higher salary, Rollo
said he was enticed by FGCU's fast-
growing student body and opportunity

thing being developed," Rollo said.

more secure coming in.

relate to these students," Tavakoli said.
"There is no better feeling than when you

they get up and hug you because they are
just so ecstatic."

All good things must come to an end.
More importantly, all good things have to go out with a
Here at the Department of Darts & Laurels, we sure love one
last, big blowout before a long, long dry spell. We're talking, of
course, about television finales.
You know, those spare-no-expense ratings gimmicks the net-
works assault us with as spring begins its sticky slide toward
We're not picky this year we watched, perched on the
edges of our seats, as "The West Wing" inaugurated a new
president in its final episode and as Jack Bauer took down the
president in the season finale of "24."
Those three hours of TV, which featured more twists than a
typical hour of "Alias," generated almost more adrenaline than
we could take.
At the Department, we dutifully dialed in our votes for the
next American Idol, pulverized Puffs during "Grey's Anatomy"
and nibbled our nails as "Lost" hurtled to a dose, savoring the
last fresh television before the barren season hiatus begins.
So hunt down your remote, fire up the popcorn popper and
hold your breath as you read this week's cliffhanger edition
Darts & Laurels
Here at the Department, we love a nice surprise almost as
much as we love Simon Cowell, the bitchy Briton who makes
his living pooh-poohing the Kelly Clarkson wannabes on the
Fox hit "American Idol." Alas, we found ourselves disagreeing
with Cowell this season, as an unconventional crooner steam-
rolled his way to the final round.
For getting us all shook up week after week, we bequeath a
Carrie-combined LAUREL to American Idol Taylor Hicks, the
silver-haired singer who rewrote the book on Elvis and Elton
John so thoroughly it had us saying goodbye to the yellow brick
Hicks felled silver-tongued Katharine McPhee during
Wednesday night's schlock-heavy "Idol" windup, sending her
to the No. 2 spot that made Clay Aiken famous er, infamous.
If there is one thing we've learned from worshipping "Idol,"
it's that second place is more like being stuck between a rock
and a hard place kind of like Jack Bauer on "24."
Much like the secret agents on the pulse-pounding wrap-up
of the fifth season of "24," student senators watched their presi-
dent topple this week.
Though senators weren't as aghast as "24" viewers when a
fictional first lady overthrew her husband, they were surprised
when Senate President Lauren Mierley announced a summer
hiatus of her own.
In the aftermath of Mierley's announcement, the Senate's
second-in-command said no to stepping up. For creating a
constitutional crisis in a coffee cup, we fire a we-thought-you-
were-the-heir-and-the-spare DART to Josh Weiss, the Senate
president pro tempore, who under ordinary circumstances
- would assume the presidency.
Weiss, however, isn't ready for the gavel he hastily wrote
a bill calling for senators to pick a new president, rather than sit
back and watch the law at work a decision about as tepid as
yet another "Survivor" finale.
At least for Weiss, the tribe has spoken.
The last episode of "Survivor" is typically a vicious affair,
with voted-off contestants returning to spout off to those who
out-backstabbed them during their 39 days in the bush.
For bringing some old-fashioned "Survivor" spite to a usu-
ally teary-eyed right of passage, we shoot a we-believe-the-chil-
dren-are-our-future-too DART to Kyle Stublen, the Charlotte
County high school graduate who delivered a scathing speech
at his graduation ceremony.
Our horror aside, we at the Department are slightly ashamed
to admit we didn't think of this sooner.
Standing before his classmates and their families, Stublen
painted a dark picture of life at Charlotte High School, one
where guidance counselors told students not to apply to college
and students got high in the bathrooms at lunchtime.
Now that's going out with a bang.

Patriot Act's snooping probes too deep

It's highly likely the nation's media companies felt the
same way. News reporting can hardly be classified as a ter-
rorist act, especially in a nation founded upon the principles
of free speech.
This free speech was initially guaranteed with the pur-
pose of keeping the government from shutting down those
who would criticize it. Without the right of the press to free
speech, the citizens of our nation would have little to no ac-
cess to information regarding our government's activities.
Similarly, government -I lstle-blowers are a modem-day
form of protection against government excess. By expos-
ing information that is not readily available to the public,
they prevent backroom dealing and secret illegal behavior.
Furthermore, by going to the press only on the condition of
anonymity, they can avoid massive political fallout and/or
Or, at least, they could avoid these problems. In the past
months, the FBI has been investigating whistle-blowers and
information leaks under new provisions of the Patriot Act.
Using National Security Letters, which are essentially sub-
poenas without judicial approval, the FBI has been demand-
ing reporters' phone records in order to identify individuals
who go to the press with information.
The stated purpose of gathering
these records, according to an of-
ficial FBI statement, is to "determine
if a criminal act was committed by a
government employee by the unau-
thorized release of classified informa-
The implications of this behavior
are staggering. Under the Patriot Act,
the government has now granted itself unlimited powers
of investigation to use in finding individuals who go to the
public with secret information and in prosecuting them for
All that is needed to hide illegal governmental acts is a
declaration that the dirty facts are "classified." Those who
would follow their conscience are now without any protec-
tion from the government's vengeance.
Furthermore, it's a far stretch to brand all of those who
would leak governmental information as terrorists. Yet these
individuals are being investigated under governmental abili-
ties granted through the Patriot Act, which has the express
purpose of fighting terrorism.
Perhaps our government officials feel any thought or act
in opposition to their goals is terrorism. But if that is the case,
then the situation is even more terrifying.
While a limiting system of checks and balances has sup-
posedly been built into our nation's government, the real
source of checks comes from America's citizens. Public out-
cry is the strongest and most democratic method for putting
fear into our politicians and protecting the interests of the
It is a very dark day when those who would leak infor-

traitors and terrorists.

Immigration fight inspires cowardice
Editor You can tell it is election time again.
Politicians of all stripes are taking courageous
stands against those non-English speakers. A
month ago the president of the United States
declared that he believed the national anthem
should only be sung in English What bravery!
What decisiveness! What a man! We have a
politician who won't pander!
Then it was confirmed that he campaigned
for president among Hispanics by singing
the national anthem in Spanish! What intel-
ligence! What inclusion! What a walking
Bush is almost as bad as the gutless Sen.
To be fair, we can't just blame Bush and
the Republicans for this comedic election year
grandstanding. Our own Democratic Sen. Bill
Nelson seems to lack the spine needed stand
up to this embarrassing bill. Our other sena-
tor, the bilingual Mel Martinez, decided not to
even show up. If Nelson lacked spine I wonder
what someone who didn't even vote lacks?
Viewers must realize fiction of 'Code'
Editor. Every weekend some students get
the crazy idea to go to the movies to unwind
after a long week of school. I have the sad re-
sponsibility to inform you that if you are look-
ing to enjoy a movie these days, it's nearly im-
possible if the film is even semicontroversial. It
turns out that some people feel that paying $9
for a movie ticket entitles them to launch into
an impromptu lecture on how they disagree
with the film or how grossly inaccurate it is.
I strongly encourage the First Amendment
rights of all people, but there is such a thing
as social couth. I don't see Dan Brown fanat-
ics standing up in church and preaching their
undying loyalty to "The Da Vinci Code." Do
you know why? Because it's a fictional book,
with fictional characters, that uses real histori-
cal events to sell a billion copies.
I am a Catholic, and I went to Catholic
grade school and high school; trust me when

Here are a few examples: writing a book,
writing an editorial, making your own movie,
inviting a few friends over that didn't pay
$9 to do something aside from listen to your
opinions. These are just suggestions. Even if
you did all these things, I still think it's pretty
ridiculous, because you are giving factual
credence to a fictional novel. Everyone has a
right to believe whatever he or she wants, and
I guarantee you that no one will be converted
to your line of thinking by you making a dis-
turbance during a movie.
I am even more embarrassed that students
are responsible for most of this behavior, when
we are the ones with even less money to spend
on movies. Please, if you want to waste your
money, try to do it without wasting mine.
UPD's speed traps in dubious locations
Editor I'm a staff member at UF and
have been since 1987. On Monday morning
I received my first campus speeding ticket
THURSDAY, MAY 25, 2006 N ALLIGATOR, 7
for driving 30 mph. Obviously I exceeded
the posted speed limit of 20 mph, and I take
full responsibility for my petty misdeed, but
I'm a little ticked off at the University Police
Department's malicious way of ticketing UF
employees and students.
I enter campus off of Southwest Second
Avenue at the law school and travel south to
Museum Road in front of Lake Alice. Shortly
after this point, in line with the Baby Gator day
care, a very steep incline begins. It is necessary
to ride the brake pedal from this point forward,
all the way to the stop sign at the bottom of the
hill, in order not to exceed UF's posted speed
limit. Unfortunately, if you are not constantly
watching your speedometer, you may not be
depressing your break pedal enough to lower
your speed to 20 mph. This is what happened
to me. University Police were waiting at the
bottom of the hill with handheld radar guns in
tow. University Police should not be setting up
ambush zones when the laws of physics are
impeding our ability to maintain UF's posted
speed limit of 20 mph.

S eek, many UF students
head out to bars downtown

They can expect loud music, frosty
beverages, crowds of people and,
most unpleasantly, cigarette smoke.
Smoking in restaurants and
other public areas, such as hotel lob-
bies, was outlawed in Florida in July
2003. The vote against smoking was
overwhelming, but for some rea-
son, Florida still insists on allowing
smoking in bars.
Of course, when students are-
going out to the bars, -they want to
be able to have fun and not feel the
pressure of rules and laws. But think
about how much more enjoyable it
would be to dance in a room where
you weren't suffocating on everyone

Thursday might be one
of the last chances
have to see Kid Robot as
a three-piece band; but
then again, maybe not.
One of the band's founding mem-
bers, bassist Darren McDuff, is leaving
After graduation in December, McDuff
plans to take a corporate gig in Houston.
His departure will undoubtedly alter
the band's makeup, but will not necessar-
ily end it.
"It just wouldn't be the same without
him," guitarist and singer Andrew Kuo
In recent years, the advent of technology
has drastically changed the musical land-
scape. Notables such as Gnarls Barkley and
The Postal Service have made long-distance
collaborations work out spectacularly.
McDuff already takes advantage of digi-
tal technology by recording his bass lines
into his cell phone. In the studio, he uses
the recordings as a mental reference.
If keeping the trio intact proves impos-
sible, Kuo and drummer Chi-Chung Li
plan to keep Kid Robot alive as a two-piece
Kuo's favorite band, The Black Keys,
serves as proof that talented two-piece
bands can be successful. The White Stripes,
another two-piece, are one of the most criti-
cally acclaimed bands on the market.
"I don't really want to think about the
end of the band," McDuff said "I just want
to see what happens."
Kid Robot is working to tighten their
sound and hoping to attract interest from
a record label.
Musically, Kid Robot is all over the map.
Like that of LCD Soundsystem, Kid Robot's
unique sound is a mishmash of volume,
genres and frequencies.
"We try to be experimental, but I usually
just say we're indie rock," Kuo said.
Kid Robot's taste in music is eclectic.
Members have been influenced by such
genres as classical, electronic, jazz and
Taiwanese pop, and such performers as
Tool, Pearl Jam, The Black Keys, the Roots,
Buddy Guy and even Yanni.
"It's versatile, our style. The types of
songs we play jumps all over the
place," said Chi. "It helps the songs
stay with you after the set;
they are so unique."

Chi seldom finds that music and school
interfere with each other.
"I think we're at a good balance," she

but still doing research."

I can't help but analyze it."

in the universal language.
At age 4, he learned piano. At age 6, he
took up violin. He can also play the bass
"Music is the reason I get out of bed in
the morning," Kuo said.
Chi's musical tutelage stretches back
nearly as far as Kuo's. She was in drum
corps for 10 years before helping form Kid
Robot in 2004.
She believes music should have "rich-
ness, technique and variety."
For Chi, the transition from Taiwan to
a doctorate program halfway around the
globe was like being transported to another

Kid Robot's future may be up in the air,
but one thing is for sure: During tonight's

"I really enjoy playing music, especially

intimate and revealing, I feel that the
most personal part is the actual orgasm.
It's also extremely erotic.
I've rarely seen a woman in porn who did not

of her carrying-on springs from real pleasure.
I find it incredibly hard to believe, and terribly
I wonder how many female adult actors actu-

they don't want to? What if they'd prefer to main-
tain control of their faces, knowing that what's
real might not be as attractive as pretending?
I'd imagine that they'd rather reveal their bod-
ies than their most vulnerable moments.
What's far more sexy is "real sex," most likely
because there the faces and expressions are real.
I recently watched some DVDs from the Sinclair
Institute, which, in addition to offering intimate
instructions, use real couples to illustrate. Now
that's sexy and far more interesting. Haven't

And it's surprisingly hot!
It also made me wonder: Would I
rather reveal my nether regions on the Internet, or
my face during orgasm?
And then I thought, "Wait what do I even
look like? And do I want to know?"
I certainly know what Dearest looks like, and
He, however, hates it. He saw it on a personal
video and has been self-conscious ever since. So
maybe, for now, I'll justbe comfortable not know-
ing. And don't expect to see my face (or any other
part) online any time soon.

Restrooms offer comfort
By J.M. QUIGLEY

Let's be honest with each other, students.
Summer classes may have started, and those
of us unlucky enough to be here may be back
to the grind.
Well, this Gator's heart is nonetheless drunk

Burgers define eatery
I'm going to come right out and say
it: Conestogas Restaurant has the best
burger I have ever had in my life. It's
'just a few miles north of Gainesville on
Interstate 75, exit 399. I promise you it
will be worth the drive.
Choose any of the styles of burgers
Conestogas offers, and you'll
be treated to a giant, artery- K
clogging dish of goodness
in between buns. Whether it
he the Bacon Cheeseburger
($8.95), or just the plain
ol' burger with the works,
Conestogas serves up a pound
of Grade-Abeef in every one.

Try their junior-si cd burgers, which
are only a mere, oh, half a pound.
Or if you're the adventurous kind,
try Conestogas' 3-pound burger
($19.99). That's right, count it: 1, 2, 3
pounds! And if you finish it, there's
a free slice of key lime pie waiting for
you. You'll also get your picture on the
wall, and the burger is free of charge.
"Rick's Beer Steak," named after the

Effects command budgets :calendar
F ven though no one can understand
the words coming out of Chris
- Tucke-'s mouth, New Line Cinema
scattered a mind-boggling $25 million at
his feet to secure his reprisal of fast-talking
Detective Carter in "Rush Hour 3," which
makes Tucker higher-paid than the likes
of Denzel Washington, Keanu Reeves and
The fact that Tucker has only made two
movies in almost a decade hardly detracts
from his earning power. Some say Tucker
is worth every cent of the $25 million for
another sequel to the top-selling comedy
film of all time. Others would Jorda
say Tucker fell into the last bit of
what they in the movie industry
like to call "dumb luck."
The trend in Tinseltown is
moving away from pumping
funds into placating big stars. A
great depression may soon fall
upon Hollywood as movie stars
learn to scrape by on a meager couple mil-
lion per film. As they, too, stoop to repeat-
ing outfits in their sordid decline, a differ-
ent breed of celebrity will rise to glory.
The new fat cats on the red carpet
are the special effects geeks. They have
emerged from their dark computer labs to
blink in the sunlight of a new day where
special effects, not just pretty faces, sell
Studio budgets for special effects have
erupted in the last 10 years, from $5 million
to $50 million. The digital effects involved
in "Spider-man 3" skyrocketed the film's
production cost to $300 million. Other big-
studio movies hit the $200 million mark
with the innovative effects audiences have
come to expect: "X-Men: The Last Stand"
($210 million), "Pirates of the Caribbean:
Dead Man's Chest" ($225 million) and
"Superman Returns" ($261 million).
With the demand for special effects so
high and the cost of the now-conventional
digital technology so low, one would
imagine the major firms like George
Lucas's Industrial Light & Magic would
be raking in the cash.
Not so much, though.
Profitability has plummeted because
of the rising cost of talent. If studios
want superheroes and natural disasters
to look realistic, they are going

L top guys to head their special
effects teams guys like Stefen
Fangmeier, who has a funny
name but a serious reputation
as the mastermind behind the
tornado in "Twister," the ghosts
in "Casper" and the dinosaurs
in "Jurassic Park."
And it doesn't stop there. What really
breaks the bank for special effects firms
are the masses of grunts that do the ma-
jority of the work. Hundreds of computer
savants must pound the keys at hundreds
of computers to create effects like the mas-
sive wall of water in "The Perfect Storm"
or to perform digital cosmetic surgery like
that needed to erase the bags under Jack
Nicholson's eyes in "Something's Gotta
The moral of the story is this: Don't let
anyone tell you that you spend too much

"American Matrix" exhibit opens at Harn Museum
Exhibit focuses on American art after World War II
By SHARON McCLINTIC
The second installment of a popular
exhibition opened Tuesday at the Ham
Museum. Entitled "American Matrix," the
exhibition focuses on American art created
after World War II.
This installment of the exhibition fur-
thers the first part's theme of exploring
contemporary American art, its artists,
their use of processes and materials, and
their involvement with social and political
Last year, contemporary art found a
Museum of Art
home in the Ham Museum's newest addi-
tion, the Mary Ann Ham Cofrin Pavilion.
The pavilion's 6,500 square feet were
constructed to house the museum's col-
lection of art created since the end of the
modernist period. The new wing opened
with its inaugural exhibition in October
Christine Hale, public relations director
at the Har Museum, said that the exhibi-
tion "honors the valuable contributions of
American artists and celebrates the growth
of the Ham Museum collection and the
opening of a new exhibition."
"American Matrix, Part II" features a
selection of art from the first installment
along with new pieces. Works on display
come both from the museum's permanent
collection of more than 7,000 pieces and
The exhibition is divided into five
sections. Pieces by Andy Warhol, Roy
Lichtenstein and Robert Rauschenberg
highlight the "Pop Inspired" section of the
The "Materials and Methods" section
will feature multimedia approaches to
art in the works of John Chamberlain, Sol
LeWitt and others.
Additional sections include "Strange
Space," featuring photography such as
that of Los Angeles-based Catherine Opie;
"Painterly Perspectives," showing work
of abstract impressionists such as Elmer
Bischoff; and a section featuring the work
of Laylah Ali.
Additional artists whose work will
appear include Yvonne Jacquette, Sergio
Vega, Ross Bleckner, Jun Kaneko, Allan
Sekula, Andrea Robbins, Eric Fischl and
Work from sculptors Alexander Calder
and David Smith are also on display.
During the summer months, the
whitewashed walls and airy corridors of
the main Ham Museum building will be
closed for minor renovations. Floors, car-
pet and walls will be worked on, replaced
The "American Matrix" exhibit will
be the only open exhibition during these
renovations. Gallery talks and family days
will supplement the contemporary art ex-
Brandi Breslin will speak on July 13
about American pop art and culture as it
pertains to the exhibition. Bonnie Bemau,
director of education at the Harn Museum,
will speak on July 6 about selected works
in "American Matrix: Part II."
The exhibition's curator, Kerry Oliver-
Smith, will speak about the exhibition on

The museum reopens in full this fall

After the "American Matrix" exhibi-
tion closes in October, the Mary Ann Ham
Cofrin Pavilion will remain dedicated to
the museum's contemporary collection.
The pavilion's following exhibition will
focus on international artists, Hale said.

Gators drop to 8th in second round
* SOPHOMORE TIFFANY CHUDY
HIT A HOLE-IN-ONE IN THE FIRST
ROUND OF THE CHAMPIONSHIP.
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
The No. 16 UF women's golf team
is in eighth place after finishing round
two of the NCAA Championship
at Ohio State's Scarlet Course in
The Gators fell from their third-place
standing, but the team is four strokes
away from breaking into the top five.
"They struggled today," UF coach
Jill Briles-Hinton said. "But they hung
in there and got the best out of their
games that they could. We evaluated
their games both physically and men-
tally and we came up with a plan, and
we're going to follow it tomorrow."
Sophomore captain Tiffany Chudy
is tied for third place and leads the
Gators with a par score of 144. Chudy
made some noise on the course during
the first round when she nailed a hole-
in-one on the eighth hole en route to
shooting a 3-under-par 69.
On the first nine holes of her second
round, Chudy shot flawlessly, earning
birdies on two holes and parring the
rest, but she experienced some trouble
on the back nine and finished at 3 over
par with a 75.
"She's had some swing issues all
year," Briles-Hinton said. "She's been
working on them. She deserves this
good play because she's been working

But Reggie Bush hasn't read very far in
his new employee training manual yet, be-
cause he's already upset about NFL policy.
Strangely, though, I'm on his side.
Bush, who helped USC win an NCAA
National Championship in his No. 5 jersey,
can't don the same number for the Saints.
NFL rules dictate that running backs may
only wear numbers in the 20s, 30s or 40s.
Bush contacted the NFL's competition
committee and asked for a favor, even of-
fering to donate 25 percent of his take from
jersey sales to help Hurricane Katrina sur-
But the answer came back "no," and the
only chance Bush stands of getting that

The share of proceeds going to Katrina
survivors from jersey sales alone would
help dig the NFL and its players out of a
public relations black hole they put them-
selves in with years of combining big egos
and even bigger ticket prices.
Rich McKay, co-chairman of the com-
mittee and general manager of the Atlanta
Falcons, also cited the need to give pre-
cedence to league veterans. The old-tim-
ers would feel turned aside when their
requests had been denied in the past and

Gators lend a hand at youth camps
By JENNIFER TALABER
Alligator Contributing Writer
The OF baseball team's regular season
may be over, but players and coaches are
already preparing themselves for one of
the busiest times of the year youth
summer baseball camps.
The Florida Baseball Camps, often
drawing 400 to 600 kids, have been a sta-
ple of the UF baseball program for more
than 25 years. Staffed by Gators coaches
and players, the various camps also draw
from the expertise of high school and
community college coaches, professional
scouts and professional athletes.
The camps have attracted players
from as many as 18 different states as
well as players from Korea, Puerto Rico
The camps are directed by UF baseball
position and hitting coach Tim Parenton.
Many players have received scholar-
ship offers out of these camps, not only to
UF, but to other universities throughout
the country as well.
UF senior pitcher Darren O'Day
caught the eye of coaches when he at-
tended the summer camps in high
school. He later joined the team and
became an integral part of the Gators'
"His dream became a reality," UF
baseball staff assistant Lisa Moore said.
The six different camps offered are
age-designed with a low coach-to-camp-
er ratio. Among the advanced camps
are a camp for high
school teams only, the
Camp and a Pitcher/
Catcher Camp de-
signed for individual
players. Each camp is
geared toward play-
Parenton ers ranging from ages
14 to 18.
"The high school camps are teaching
camps, but also a chance to expose your-
self in the great environment UF baseball
provides," Parenton said.
For Gators catcher Brian Jeroloman,
camps are a chance to demonstrate the
camaraderie of the baseball team as well
as hone skills.
"For these-age players, it is impor-
tant to learn maturity and character as
a teammate, as well as the fundamentals
to become better players," he said. The
campers learn communication and inter-
action from watching us."
For baseball players making the jump
from middle school to high school base-
ball, a day camp is offered. It focuses on
improving skills and taking their games
to the next level.
For the youngest of players, a youth
half-day camp and a youth full-day camp
are offered. These camps provide specific
training for the different age and skill lev-
els as well as daily games and drills.
"We teach every facet of the game,"
In addition to tutelage from the
program's experienced staff and team,
campers will also have access to the base-
ball team's athletic trainer, John Barrett,
and strength and conditioning coordina-
tor, Steven Orris.
Players may register until the day
camp begins, but $50 and registra-
tion information may be sent in now
to reserve camp spots. Prices range
from $175 to $390. For more infor-
mation or to register, contact the
Gator Baseball Office at (352) 375-
4683 ext. 4457.

tive gruff from all those who came before.
But what if opening up the numbering sys-
tem is a good thing?
Many of these same players are highly
superstitious, and letting them wear the
last two digits of a high school girlfriend's
phone number may open lady luck's flood-
gates for them.
Even allowing jersey changes if a player
agrees to donate a certain cut of the profits
to charity would do a lot more good for
the league's image than having the team
send out a token second-liner to coach an
hour-long camp for inner-city kids once a
summer. Helping them rebuild their homes,
not giving an infomercial on spirals, is a lot
Maybe I shouldn't be criticizing the NFL.
I mean, I certainly wouldn't take their ad-
vice on how to run a newspaper.
But saying "no" to dancing and dictating
what you can wear make football into some-
thing it should never be: a job.
