TROPICAL STORM ALBERTO


Alberto drizzles, fizzles on Florida's coast


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer 1
Ilewis@alligator.org

With the season's first tropical
storm amounting to little more than
a summer downpour, local officials
say they feel prepared to combat
the more treacherous storms pre-
dicted to form later this season.
Tropical Storm Alberto, which
swept through the area Tuesday,
caused little damage around
Alachua County and elicited no
reports of serious injuries. Both UF
and SFCC canceled classes.
At UF, officials said they were
relieved to have taken precaution-
ary measures despite Tuesday's
mild and drizzly conditions.
When UF President Bemie
Machen decided to shut down
the university, "we were looking
at northwest forecasts that were
calling for sustained winds of 45 to
50 miles per hour on Tuesday," UF
spokesman Steve Orlando said.
Though UF's campus escaped
Alberto with almost no damage or
leftover debris, university officials
were forced to abruptly cancel a
Preview session scheduled to run
Tuesday and Wednesday.
"That was the unfortunate
part," Orlando said.
Though Alachua County offi-
cials prepared for rough weather
with tree-removal trucks and free
sandbags for local residents, many
of their resources went largely
unused as Alberto showered the


area. Still, officials said the', ,ere
grateful for the chance to tr out. .

relatively low-key storm

out to be much, but il wa.s a great
exercise to make sure we were

UF professors, student challenge Cuba travel ban


* PLAINTIFFS BELIEVE THE STATE
OVERSTEPPED ITS BOUNDARIES.

By LINDSEY FRANCO
Alligator Writer
Ifranco@alligator.org

Two UF professors and a graduate student
are challenging a recently passed Florida law
prohibiting the use of university money for
travel to Cuba and any country deemed a "ter-
rorist state" by the U.S. State Department.
Carmen Diana Deere, director and profes-
sor of UF's Center for Latin American Studies,
and Jose Alvarez, UF professor emeritus, are
among six state university faculty members


who joined the suit Tuesday.
"In one word it's unconstitutional,"
Deere said of the law. "And that's because
the state can't try to legislate in areas that are
of federal jurisdiction." The suit, filed by the
American Civil Liberties Union of Florida,
charges that the state violated the Supremacy
Clause of the U.S. Constitution, which states
that if state law conflicts with federal law, the
federal law prevails:
"So foreign affairs and foreign commerce
would properly be the activities of the federal
government," Deere said.
The lawsuit challenges the bill known as
the Act Relating to Travel to Terrorist States \
signed by Gov. Jeb Bush last month. It will


become law on July 1.
"It's really going to hurt our graduate stu-
dents at UF more than anything," Deere said.
SShe said several graduate students are at-
tracted to UF because it has an institutional
license, which allows gradu-
UF ate students to study and
Research research in foreign countries
such as Cuba.
"If [researchers] can't do the fieldwork, the
archival work, they'll go elsewhere," Deere
said.
Universities can obtain these licenses from
the U.S. Treasury Department to study in cer-
tain foreign countries, she added.
UF graduate student Vanessa Harper, a


plaintiff in the lawsuit, has traveled to Cuba
to conduct research backed by university
money.
The travel act will hinder her future re-
search on the factors that affect small-scale
agriculture in western Cuba.
Harper could not be reached for comment
on Wednesday.
Faculty members at Florida International
University, the University of Central Florida
and the University of South Florida are also
involved in the lawsuit.
The United States broke off diplomatic
relations with Cuba in 1961, two years after
Communist dictator Fidel Castro seized pow-
er. Most trade with Cuba is also prohibited.

Track closed, upgrades
expected to last until August
UF's main running track will
dose Friday for resurfacing until
the end of summer.
The James G. Pressly Stadium
at Percy Beard Track will be ripped
apart and resurfaced. It will be
complete in early August.
"They tear up the track and to-
tally redo it," said Mike Holloway,
UF men's track coach. "It's old,
and it just needed to be redone for
training and safety."
The resurfacing will cost the
University Athletic Association
$650,000.
"It's going to enable us to
roast in the NCAA East Regional
Championship," said Brian
Barton, coordinator of operations
for the UAA.
UF will host the 2007 NCAA
East Regional Track and Field
Championship in May 2007 for the
second time. It hosted the event in
2004.

Bugs leave behind sticky legacy


By MELISSA THOMPSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

As lovebug season peaks this
month, irritated motorists race their
insect-encrusted vehicles to local
car washes and detailing specialists
to wash away what some believe is
harmful, paint-damaging lovebug
acid.
Norman Leppla, a UF professor
of entomology and nematology and
program, director of Integrated Pest
Management, said he thinks the idea
that lovebugs are acidic is untrue. He
said lovebugs are pH neutral, mean-
ing there is not enough acidity in their
systems to cause severe damage to
vehicles.
"If you leave them on your car, the


sun cooks them," Leppla said. "That is
what causes the stains."
Although Leppla said he thinks
lovebugs do not have damaging acids,
many Gainesville car wash and detail-
ing owners said
Around they have seen the
Gainesville damage lovebugs
can cause.
David Busch,
owner of Pro Wax, a car and boat de-
tailing shop, said lovebugs will eat the
paint on a car, destroying the primer
and the metal underneath.
Although the acidity of love-
bugs is disputed, both Leppla and
Busch agree that lovebugs impact
Gainesville's economy.
Scott Cline, owner of Classic
Carwash on Archer Road, said his

profits increase at least 25 percent
when swarms of lovebugs emerge
during May and June, and September
to October.
Although bug-splattered vehicles
bring more revenue, Cline said using
special chemicals to remove the insects
can become expensive. Depending on
the severity of bug buildup, Cline said
he charges an additional $2 to $3 for
each vehicle to curb the cost of sup-
plies and labor.
Monica Hill, a UF junior, said she
would pay extra money for a car wash
under the right circumstances.
"I would only understand if the
owner raised the price because it cost
more for him to get the bugs off," she
said:
Busch said that although lovebugs
help increase profits about 10 to 20
percent, the bugs make cleaning cars
more labor intensive. He uses an ap-
paratus called a "lovebug sponge" to
remove baked-on bug juice. He said
the sponge is more abrasive than most
tools but will not harm a car's paint.
Cline uses a special chemical called
"bug juice" to remove the insects.
Although both Busch and Cline
offer special methods to remove love-
bugs, Leppla said he thinks a little el-
bow grease is the best way to remove
the insects.
"Its not very hard," Leppla said.
"I just carry a squirt bottle and cloth
with me."

Preview travels
By ELIZABETH WATSON

UF officials canceled the session of Preview beginning
Tuesday due to Tropical Storm Alberto, giving many new
UF students and their families short notice.
"A lot of people did come into town," UF spokesman
Steve Orlando said Wednesday. "I know I spoke to some
parents who said, 'Well gee, I drove all the way from
Pensacola, and now I'm here -. what are we going to
go do?'"
The Dean of Students Office con-
r tacted families scheduled to come
to Tuesday's Preview- by e-mail,
.i Associate Dean of Students Paige
Crandall said Monday.
Families who had already ar-
rived in Gainesville were told of the
Orlando cancellation in person at the Dean of
Students Office and were asked to
reschedule for a different Preview session.
Crandall said UF had been tracking the storm but did
not decide to cancel Preview until Monday afternoon.
She estimates that there were "a couple hundred" stu-
dents and their parents scheduled to arrive on Tuesday
"There are openings in the other sessions of Preview,"
Crandall said. "We will fit them in."

ON CAMPUS

Candidate emphasizes U.S. energy independence


By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Republican candidate for U.S.
Senate, LeRoy Collins Jr., spoke
to students in Rinker Hall, UF's.
first energy-efficient "green build-
ing," about the need to co-exist
with the environment Wednesday
afternoon.
"We need to get to a point where
we are doing things more efficient-
ly, because we are running out of
resources," Collins said.
Collins was invited by his
nephew, UF student John Begeman,
to speak to Charles Kibert's Green
Building Design and Delivery class
about his views on environmental
issues and answer questions about
his campaign platform.
He spoke about how Floridians
have damaged the hills and
swamps he grew up in more than
50 years ago. Students now have
a "major role" to play in how the
state treats the environment, he
said.
"There are a lot of good laws
that are not being followed,"
Collins said.
He argued that the public was
ignoring laws meant to keep runoff
and other pollution from escaping
retention pools and entering the


streets. Oil contained in the leakage
can contaminate estuaries, he said.
About 40 percent of the coral
reefs surrounding Florida are dead,
partly because of toxicity in the wa-
ter and the cultivation of food fish,
Collins said. He also said shrimp
farms in Central America and other
countries are now competing with
Florida. Global warming is also an
issue of concern for Collins. He said
he disagrees with Republicans who
don't believe global warming exists
or that it is a threat.
"It's inexorable, and it's going to
change our environment," Collins
said.
Collins stressed the need to
become energy-independent but
said it might require a large federal
gasoline tax.
He said he believes the
Organization of the Petroleum-
Exporting Countries continues to
lower the price of oil to encourage
Americans to buy oil from them.
"In the process of becoming
energy-independent, we might be
able to control our own destiny bet-
ter," he said.
Politics runs in Collins' family.
His father was a Democrat who
served as Florida's governor from
1955-1956. But this is his first run
for office.


Environmental issues weren't
the only issue Collins targeted. He
said national security is a top prior-
ity for him, and it was the reason he


entered the race.
"I think this is probably the
most hazardous time I've ever seen
for the sustenance of our country,"


Collins said. "The reason I think
that is because there are a hundred-
million people out there who want
us dead."

Popular bar abandons roost


By KELSIE WILSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
Trey Deller placed his hat on
his heart, lowered his head and
had a moment of silence in re-
membrance of one of his favorite
Gainesville bars.
Deller was there when that bar
closed its doors and he remem-
bered the somber atmosphere as
the owners made one last speech
thanking customers.
Deller, a recent UF gradu-
ate, said he attended the dosing
of Dirty Birds on the day of his
graduation in May.
The dosing of Dirty Birds, for-
merly known as Cluck-U Chicken,
has left students such as Deller to
questioning why it was dosed in
the first place.
"I was sad when Cluck-U
dosed," Deller said. "It was a great
place to drink cheap."
. Known for its free beer from 3
to 4 p.m. during the week and its
$7 power hour, Deller said he was


going to miss the beer-pong tables
and french fries the most.
Lauren Lippes, a UF history
major, said she was surprised that
Dirty Birds dosed and was going
to miss the bar's atmosphere.
"I felt that when you walked in
"I was sad when Cluck-
U closed. It was a great
place to drink cheap."

UF graduate

there, everyone knew everybody,"
Lippes said. "The bartenders and
bouncers knew their customers. It
was a dose, personal hangout."
Lippes also attended the dos-
ing of the bar and said everyone
was having fun, but there was a
sense of sadness.
Ish Sarkisan, owner of the
Smoothie Paradise next door to
the former Dirty Birds space, said
a rumor that the building would
be torn down was not true and


that his business would remain
at its current West University
Avenue location.
The Dirty Birds owners could
not make payments on their rent
and were kicked out of their space,
Sarkisan said, and the rumor was
probably made up to save their
reputation.
The bar's owners could not be
reached for comment.
Sarkisan said the rumor has
hurt his business and that the
complex will eventually be torn
down and replaced by a high-rise
apartment complex, but that won't
happen for at least five years.
"We just redecorated, and
well be here for at least another
five years," Sarkisan said. "The
landlord is renovating the outside,
and we're getting new canopies,
fences and having wireless put in
for students."
Sarkisan also said there will be
a fast-food sandwich shop going
into the vacant space that used to
house Dirty Birds.

Editorial
Whether it's the run-up to the opening of a summer block-
buster, a celebrity birth or a natural disaster, there's one thing
we love to hate: hype.
From the birth of little Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt to the arriv-
al of Tropical Storm Alberto, we members of the Department
of Darts & Laurels have been tapping our fingers and twid-
dling our thumbs in our wait for one much-ballyhooed event
after another.
We've been wringing our hands about the renovated
Library West, one of the few exciting events during an other-
wise somnolent season.
Perching on the edge of our seats had us worn out so
we were grateful for the day off Alberto afforded us.
But, as with all brands of hype, with the quiver of an-
ticipation also comes the possibility of disappointment
- something with which we at the Department are inti-
mately familiar. We hoped for a little more durm and strange
with Tuesday's tropical twister give us a break, we're
bloodsucking journalists but in the end, all of The Weather
Channel's huffing and puffing amounted to nothing more
than hot air.
So roll out the red carpet, hire a savvy publicist and plan
some wall-to-wall media coverage as you read this week's
hyped-up edition of...



Darts & Laurels

It had to happen sooner or later, but we weren't counting
on this much sooner. We watched, at first fascinated, then
worried and finally exasperated as Alberto inched
toward Florida's Big Bend. Slicker-clad television crews
descended to nearby Cedar Key, arriving so fast and furious
that we worried the tiny island was sinking into the sea.
Here at the Department, we said no to the hype and made
only a few half-hearted preparations for the big blow. Luckily,
we were among the few. For caving to hype and canceling
classes Tuesday, we dry off a talk-about-a-Katrina-sized-mis-
calculation LAUREL for UF President Bernie Machen, who
hastily shut down the university in preparation for a day
of... overcast skies and intermittent drizzle.
Alberto squeaked rather than roared, but now that the
attention has turned elsewhere, we're confident that this
hurricane season will make good on its forecasted promises.
Perhaps the aftermath will be a little more enjoyable, thanks
to government-provided debit cards that will allow us to
purchase the latest edition of "Girls Gone Wild" and a bottle
of Dom Perignon to wash it all down.
For mismanaging yet another task in the most misman-
aged maelstrom in American history, we pluck a this-
is-our-first-time-too DART for the Federal Emergency
Management Agency, the notorious relief organization that
infamously bungled the response to Hurricane Katrina. In
Katrina's wake, FEMA issued fully loaded debit cards to
storm survivors and more than a few impostors result-
ing in an estimated $600 million to $1.4 billion in fraudulent
payments.
Some of the items purchased with the FEMA funds in-
cluded the aforementioned skin flicks and Champagne, as
well as NFL tickets and a one-week, all-inclusive stay at a
Dominican Republic resort.
When it rains, it pours or gets flushed down the toilet.
Congress' Government Accountability Office slapped
FEMA around after the titillating truth leaked, but we don't
see why Congress had any right to talk about wasting tax-
payer cash.
For raising their own salaries for the seventh year in a
row, we fatten up a political-fortunes-may-wane-but-greed-
is-bipartisan DART for the U.S. House of Representatives.
Members of Congress' lower house were crawling on their
bellies this week to accept the raise, which will hike the aver-
age representative's annual salary to $168,500. Now those are
some bloated egos we'd like to deflate.

Gas is greener on other side, after all


Recent turmoil has been boiling to the surface
about alternative sources for powering vehicles.
ericans are outraged that oil prices have in-
creased to $71 a barrel, and Sony is releasing, "Who Killed
The Electric Car?," which attempts to document the rea-
sons why General Motors pulled the EV1 from the market
in 2003, after seven profitable years.
On the environmentalist perspective, Thorn Yorke,
spokesperson for the Big Ask and front man for the rock
band Radiohead, canceled his meeting with the prime
minister of England about finding solutions to vehicle
emission pollution because he believed it wouldn't solve
anything. Frustration and prices seem to be literally esca-
lating and options are limited.,
It seems engineers have exhausted every possible solu-
tion to gasoline engine alternatives. Hydrogen might be
impossible because engineers haven't been able to prevent
the tanks from blowing, and battery powered vehicles
don't measure up to consumer needs, according to cau-
tionary tales from GM.
The only vehicles running on any substance not limited
to gasoline are hybrids and ethanol-chuggers.
Regardless of the direction vehicles take into the future,
one question remains: Why hasn't our country invested in
finding alternatives to vehicle power considering its envi-
ronmental, economic and health hazards?
If the United States were to cease the consumption of
gasoline due to an alternate form of vehicle power on a na-
tional scale, there would be a state of economic upheaval.
Americans would lose hundreds, if not thousands of
jobs, ranging from truck drivers that transport gasoline,
gasoline station managers, gasoline station workers, gaso-
line refining factories, etc. America would possibly face


Dayron Leon one of the largest unemployment
Speaking Out rates in history, along with an expo-
nential growth in criminality rates.
A resultant series of protest would
break out, fueled by civil unrest.
Beyond America, countries whose main economy con-
sisted of oil would engage in states of crisis and warfare.
These crises would consequently involve aggressive pro-
cedures encompassing the United States.
Assuming border-dividing construction won't con-
tinue past south of the border, it would be safe to assume
that the United States would be quite vulnerable to exter-
nal terrorist tactics.
Considering this detailed hypothetical account of
events following the immediate disuse of gasoline, an
apparent third world war would inaugurate the future of
mankind.
Critics claim that America should aim at researching
other forms of vehicle power. As much as I agree, an ele-
ment is missing in the formula. Conversion will be neces-
sary for the process to be gradual and as less invasive as
possible. Establishing economic alternatives for nations
whose main income is based off oil is essential. A nation
left in economic ruins, like Germany was prior to World
War II, could resort to similar and even more drastic forms
of warfare.
The technology for gasoline alternatives might already
exist, but our politicians might be doing what could be po-
litically wise for our nation and others as well. Concern for
our environmental future might be on hold because some
countries' economies are bound to an obsolete greasy re-
source.

THURSDAY, JUNE 15, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 7


Column

Online newspapers lack satisfaction, ease of print cousins


This column is in response to Ashley
Willis' June 8 letter regarding Student
Government-funded newspapers.
While I can understand Willis' irritation at
"everyone whining about The New York
Times," I have to point out that her argument
has flaws.
While it is true that the Times, the Chicago
Sun-Times and The Wall Street Journal (not to
mention of course, The Independent Florida
Alligator) do place the day's paper online,
Willis fails to mention that to access articles
more than a day old at most newspaper sites,
you must register as a member.
This can at times mean paying additional
fees in order to see archived articles; the paper
must make money somehow! Unfortunately,
not everyone is glued to their computers 24
hours per day, seven days per week. I will


freely admit that I check the news headlines
immediately when I wake up by booting up
my laptop. However, early morning classes do
not give me the luxury of being able to read
more than just that: the headlines.
I find it very convenient and as an
avid reader, relaxing to be able to pick up
a newspaper on my way to class and peruse
it at my leisure, without worrying how soon
the article will disappear and how much I will
have to pay to review it again should I mis-
place my copy.
Willis also mentions how our university
library system subscribes to thousands of pe-
riodicals each year for the express purpose of
making them available for student access.
I ask, "Ms. Willis, have you been reading
the Alligator recently?" Toward the end of the
Spring semester, the library system announced


Erin McCarthy that it would be cancel-
Speaking Out ing a number of its pe-
riodical subscriptions
in order to get rid of a
$750,000 deficit. The story was published in
the Alligator on March 6. While unlikely that
major periodicals such as the Times would be
cut, other periodicals important to the research
of students and faculty will disappear.
On one final note, I wish to address these
newspapers that Willis apparently sees "bare-
ly perused, sitting in the trash." While I do not
condone the throwing out of papers randomly
- there should be proper recycling receptacles
- I have always been a believer in what is
known as "paper courtesy." Among those
who have read newspapers for years, it is
commonly accepted as polite behavior to fold
your paper properly and stack it neatly in or-


der to show to others who might want to read
that paper that you have finished. This keeps
papers from being scattered everywhere and
allows someone who may not otherwise have
access to the papers the chance to read them.
Not everyone is out to complain. Some of
us actually do care whether or not a paper is
available for us to read. Willis wrote that we
are Gators and as such "are better than this."
I say I would prefer to pay $1 for an honest
old-fashioned piece of newsprint to blacken
my hands with than to get a headache trying
to deal with blocked articles, glared screens
and someone tapping their foot behind me
because I can't print my article fast enough.
By all means, enjoy the gift of the Intemet
and UF library system. But if you'll excuse me,
I'm off to read the paper.
Erin McCarthy is finance sophomore.

I personally look for people whom I trust when taking on
a particular effort and would argue that loyalty, communica-

organization or government. I would rather have people com-

Civil War Exposure

Ray Carson focuses his lens on re-enactments ByANGIEDEANGELIS


hitting around a campfire at the end of
a long day, Ray Carson replayed in
his mind everything he had seen and
thought to himself, "What the heck am I
doing here?"
Trudging through fields of black smoke,


he had heard cannons and gunshots echo-
ing in the hot summer day, seen Union and
Confederate soldiers drop to the ground
with glazed eyes staring blankly up at the
sky,- and witnessed terrified nurses assist-
ing in crude amputations while patients

Artist Ray Carson talks about his photo exhibit during Book Inc.'s Friday evening recep


writhed in pain.
So why was he there? Well, someone had
to take the pictures.
Carson's book, "The Civil War Soldier:
A Photographic Journey," documents the
Civil War as presented by modem-day re-
enactors across the country.
A selection of his hand-col-
ored photos is on exhibit at
Books Inc., 505 NW 13th St.,
until the end of June.
~ The photojournalist and
self-proclaimed history buff
has always been fascinated
by the Civil War and early
photography. When some-
one brought him pictures
from a re-enactment, he
Wondered what it would
be like if he could be there,
he said.
"So I did it, and I fell in
love with it," Carson said.
"It was like time travel."
At first, he tried going
out in the fields just as a
photographer, but realized
he stood out too much and
Sre-enactors were self-con-
scious in front of the lens.
SJTrading. his regular
Clothes for wool Civil War
uniforms and carrying his
camera with him in his
haversack, Carson became
a re-enactor. After spend-
ing three or four days in
the field, Carson admitted
Reyes/ Alligator it was easy to forget he was
tio. in the 20th century and not
tion. the 1860s.


"As a re-enactor, you create a personal-
ity," he said. "It's not just the costume, but
also the little things sitting at a campfire,
the playing cards in your shirt pocket, ev-
erything."
Starting in 1990, Carson spent 10 years
visiting and participating in Civil War re-en-
actments in Maryland, Virginia, Florida and
other states, capturing everything he saw in
his black-and-white pictures.
When he began putting the book to-
gether, Carson added writing from real
first-person accounts of the war, including
text from letters, diaries, and memoirs writ-
ten by people who were actually there in the
1860s.
"I wanted them to tie in," he said. "A lot
of these quotes lend themselves to the pic-
tures. Others, I had a quote in mind before I
took the picture."
At the exhibition, a photograph of a
Civil War operating room is framed next to
quotes from Capt. James Wren of the 48th
Pennsylvania Infantry.
"You Could see many legs Laying in the
yard with the shoes & stockings on not
taken off when amputated & in a field to
the left of this house was a long line of
dead soldiers," wrote the Union captain,
capturing the horrors of Civil War medical
procedures.
Carson, also the director of photography
for UF's Division of News & Public Affairs,
said his goal is not to glorify the war, but to
tell the story of real people who fought for
what.they believed in.
"The idea of the exhibition is to show the
humanity," he said. "Both the good and the
tragedy."
"The Civil War Soldier: A Photographic
Journey" will be republished by Random

23. The show kicks off at 8 p.m.
The three-night, two-weekend celebra-
tion is set in historic downtown Gainesville.
The "Let's Go Downtown" Plaza Series is a
continuing entertainment event intended to
offer exciting entertainment for revelers of
all ages.

to come downtown on Friday night,"
Hutchinson said. "They'll find themselves
in the middle of a nice community."
Nice community indeed. How many

A s a college student, there's a good
chance you break your bank ac-
count every weekend with a bar

won't remember a lot? Get your drinking
crew together and put on your beer goggles

week in Gainesville.
If you really want to start your week
off with a beer belly, head to Grog House

wings, chicken fingers and fries,
or just enjoy $3 beer pitchers and Jenr
$1 Coronas. JP Gators at 1605 SW

at TGI Friday's, 3598 SW Archer
Road, you can order 99-cent do-
mestic draft beer, half-priced wells or $1.99
cosmopolitans, Long Island iced teas and
margaritas.
If you can only go out one night a week,
make it a Tuesday. Get to Panama Joes at 5109
NW 39th Ave between 9 p.m. and midnight
for $5 all-you-can-drink draft beer, or head
to Market Street Pub at 120 SW First Ave.

Flea market offers


assortment of wares N


By ASHLEY EMANS
Avenue Writer

With more than 1,000 dealers
selling both new and used goods,
the Waldo Farmers and Flea Market
provides countless opportunities for
unique finds and wicked bargains.
Shopping there is about more
than just the wares, though.
Strolling through the outdoor
market on a sunny afternoon will
satisfy anyone craving a small-town
Southern experience.
Each weekend about 40,000
shoppers visit the 50-acre site, where
it is free to take in the sights, sounds
and smells. Boiled peanuts, sugary
treats, country music and energetic
children all contribute to the unique
experience.
The farmer's market offers a
large variety of quality produce.
Other items for sale include cloth-
ing, candles, pets, toys, DVDs, tires,


flowers, vitamins, body lotions and,
of course, Gator gear.
One vendor, who lives in neigh-
boring Bradford County and goes
only by the name of Ford, has been
selling produce at the Waldo market
for 10 years.
"We only sell produce from the
U.S.A.," he said proudly, as he mo-
tioned toward a banner above his
booth that said as much.
The flea market is open Saturdays
and Sundays from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30
p.m. The hours make it perfect for a
weekend day trip. It is located about
13 miles north of Gainesville off of
Highway 301.
A friendly reminder watch
your speed as you enter the town.
Waldo is infamous for its speed
traps.
Whether you are just in the mood
for browsing, or on a mission to buy
a specific item, the Waldo Farmers
and Flea Market is just up the road.

At the Waldo Farmers and Flea Market, located northeast of Gainesville off U.S. Highway 301, more
than 1,000 dealers sell a variety of items and collectibles.

Guys need man time to keep a relationship's spark


Editor's note: This is a guest column writ-
ten by Maghan McDowell's lover.
0 K ladies, I have a confession.
S When your boyfriend goes out
- with his buddies, they do the follow-
ing: go to strip dubs, hit on other women and
have unprotected sex with prostitutes.
Yeah, not really. Most of the time hell be


doing exactly what he said he was going to
do hang out with his buddies and act like
an idiot.
Guys are pretty simple creatures, so stop
putting so much thought in to it. You're al-
ready giving it up to him, so it's not like he
needs to look far for sex. I think I can safely
speak for most guys when I say that we are


lazy. We'll take the sure thing. You know how
to cup my balls just right, and that's worth
something.
We also don't talk about you with our
friends. I know this is hard to believe, since
you tell your girlfriends every minute detail
of our sexual proclivities (thanks a lot, babe),
but the fact is that we talk about everything


EXCEPT you.
Not only is time away from you not a bad
thing, but it's good for your relationship. If
you want your man to bring his A-game, give
him some time to play Xbox and lift weights.
Your man will come back dear, refreshed and
ready to give you the boning you need. He
might even hold you afterwards.

Gators earn NCAA track honors


* JUNIOR MIKE MORRISON
OVERCAME INJURIES TO CLAIM
SEVENTH PLACE IN THE LONG
JUMP.

By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer

Junior All-American Mike Morrison
broke the all-time record for All-America
honors by a UF track and field athlete
when he picked up his 13th honor
Thursday by placing seventh in the long
jump at the NCAA Championships in
Sacramento, Calif.
Morrison earned his spot in spite of
battling nagging injuries throughout the
outdoor season. But perhaps the high-
light of the championships for the men's
track and field squad was the stellar per-
formance of freshman Willie Perry who
earned All-America honors by taking
fifth in the 200-meter dash. He became
the first athlete at UF since world cham-
pion John Capel to earn an All-America
bid in the 200 as a freshman Saturday.
"Willie Perry did a very good job in
coming in and taking fifth as a fresh-
man," UF men's coach Mike Holloway
said. "We thought he might be able to
do a little better, but you can't take any-
thing away from him for what he did this
year."
The UF women's track and field
squad picked up six All-America honors
during the meet, despite battling injuries
all season.
The women's team had two seniors
close out their collegiate careers earning
All-America honors for the first time.
One came from Dara Altman in the pole
vault while the other came from Jyn
Wynn in the hammer.
The team also took home four All-
America honors in the 4x100 relay.
"We had six All-Americans in this
meet, and that was an accomplishment
for a group that hasn't been as strong as
we're used to having at Florida the past


10 years," UF women's track and field
coach Tom Jones said. "They did a great
job at this meet, and I think we learned a
lot in the four days of competition here.


"The 4x100-meter relay will return
three of four legs next year, and it was a
great experience for them to run in the fi-

Lax to make


2010 debut

By CHRIS WHITE
Alligator Staff Writer

UF athletics director Jeremy Foley announced
Wednesday that the university would sponsor a
women's lacrosse team, which could begin play
by spring 2010.
"It's a very exciting day for our program,"
Foley said. "Any time you can add a sport, it's
exciting. ... We have an opportunity to start a
program from scratch and hopefully see a great
deal of success down the road."
Foley said the addition of lacrosse had been
discussed for some time, and the university's ath-
letic board of directors approved it Wednesday
morning.
"When you go down the
List, lacrosse just stood out as
* -' ."" mthe best fit for what we have
,. -- '. going here," assistant athlet-
ics director Lynda Tealer said.
"All the criteria as well as just
the real national momentum
Folbehind lacrosse and how
many different levels it's being
sponsored at, it was just hard to ignore."
Foley laid out a timeline that would see the
university begin raising funds this year, hire
coaches and staff through 2008, complete a new
facility and begin recruiting through 2009 and
begin regular-season competition in 2010.
UF will join Vanderbilt as the only other
Southeastern Conference university to host a
lacrosse team. The SEC does not organize a la-
crosse league, so the team likely will look to join
an East Coast division, Foley said.
Foley and Tealer said they believe the team
will be able to compete on an elite level almost
immediately.
"This is an organization that has an opportu-
nity to be competitive nationally within a fairly
quick amount of time because of our commit-
ment that we have," Foley said.


Sa a GOLF

UF father, son take swing at coach-player relationship


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer

Duringhis tenure as the UF men's
golf coach, Buddy Alexander has
persuaded golfers from the United
States, Europe, South America and
Australia to play for the Gators.
But come fall, when he begins his
20th season as UF's head coach, he
will find a familiar face in the 2006-
07 recruiting class: his son, Tyson.


Alexander said even though he's
never officially been his son's coach,
he doesn't anticipate any problems.
While the official relationship
of "coach and player" may be new
to the duo, the bond began when
Tyson was just a child.
Tyson said Buddy gave him a
cut-down set of cubs when he was
about 6 or 7 years old, and Tyson's
fervor for the game grew stronger as
he matured.


"I got serious about golf
around 12 or 13 and he's
been my coach since then."
Tyson Alexander
UF golfer

"I got serious about golf around
12 or 13," he said, "and he's been my
coach since then. I don't think it's
going to be different, and I don't see


how he could make it different."
But this cozy arrangement almost
didn't happen.
Tyson said he received a few let-
ters from colleges that wanted him
to play for their programs, and he
seriously considered an offer from
Alabama.
"I thought about it, and I almost
called the coach to set up a visit,"
he said, "but I decided against it.
Florida is where I wanted to go


because of the tradition. They've
always been good, and the
[Southeastern Conference] is a good
golf conference. And my dad is a
pretty dam good coach."
During his tenure at UF, Buddy
has been named the National Coach
of the Year four times by the Golf-
Coaches Association of America and
was inducted into the GCAA Hall of
Fame in 2002.

UNDERWATER HOCKEY

Club hosts title tourney


By CASSANDRA BIANCO
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's underwater hockey dub is host-
ing the 2006 U.S. and Collegiate Nationals.
Seventeen national teams will travel to
Gainesville to compete in the three-day tour-
nament, which begins Friday.
UF coach Greg Mullersman, a computer
proginmmer at Shands at UF, said the sport
is played with diving masks, snorkels, fins,
sticks and a 3-pound puck, which can be
pushed as high as 2 feet off of the pool's
surface.
As evidenced by teams coming from as far
away as California, the sport has been slowly
gaining popularity throughout the United
States, Mullersman said.
"The likelihood that anybody has even
heard of the game is quite remote," he said.
"It's totally new to people."
Divers in England created the sport in
the early 1950s for a fun way to exercise and
strengthen lungs, he said. The sport, known
as "Octopush" in Great Britain, was origi-
nally played with eight players and a tiny
shuffleboard-type stick. Underwater hockey
has taken hold in Australia, New Zealand,
South Africa and Europe ever since.
"It's not really the strongest player or the
one that can hold his breath the longest that's
necessarily going to win," he said. "There's a
lot of finesse in the game."
The UF team won their last tournament
in April against the Connecticut Barnacles at
George Mason. The team has high hopes for
winning in this weekend's national collegiate
tournament, he said.
UF underwater hockey team president
Mark Mullersman, a sophomore majoring in


industrial engineering and Greg's son, began
playing underwater hockey after enjoying
scuba diving trips with his father and mem-
bers of the Gainesville club. He said he enjoys
the fast-paced sport and camaraderie of the
team play.
-Even though the game is a non-contact
sport, it is still aggressive and players will
often have to dodge each other's, fins. The
game has both underwater and land refer-
ees who sound loud underwater buzzers to
signal penalties to the players. The scoring is
simple-one point per goal. Colored sticks
differentiate opposing teams, and there are
six team members playing at a time.
"It's not really the strongest
player or the one that can hold
his breath the longest that's nec-
essarily going to win."
Greg Mullersman
UF underwater hockey coach

The most challenging part is having no
goalies and using hand-signals to communi-
cate for the subbing of players, Mark said.
Greg said U.S. teams often qualify for the
Underwater Hockey World Championships,
which takes place in different locations every
two years.
The underwater hockey team community
is like an extended family, Greg said. Fellow
teams will often provide a place to stay when
teams are traveling to tournaments around
the world.
The tournament begins at 9 a.m., Friday
through Sunday, at the Dwight H. Hunter
Municipal Pool.

nals this season. We have a great recruit-
ing class coming in, and we are looking
forward to a better season next year."
The men's team is also looking to
improve on its performance this sea-
son. Holloway shares the same outlook


with Jones for the next track and field
season.
"This was easily one of the most
difficult years of my coaching career,"
Holloway said. "We had some glaring
holes in our program exposed. We have
to learn that when we come to the line,
we have to compete every time. We
didn't understand that this year. "


Alexander: Golfer son has "some game


GOLF, from page 19


When it comes to his son's capabilities as
a golfer, Buddy evaluates Tyson as he would
any other player.
"He's got some talent and some skills," he
said. "His fundamentals are in good order.
He's got a lot of potential, but there's a saying
about potential: 'You ain't done nothing yet.'
But he's got some game."
Still; Tyson's "some game" is enough to
defeat his former two-time All-American fa-
ther when they go out on the greens together.
"He hasn't beaten me in a while," Tyson
said, "but he also hasn't really played in a
while. He's played five rounds in 2006, and
we played once together a few months ago."
Throughout the years, Tyson has tagged
along to the UF Golf Course with his father on
several occasions and spent time with Gators
golfers.


"I've been around all of them," he said.
"Jessie Mudd and Manny Villegas are cool.
I'm looking forward to playing with Billy
Horschel because he's an All-American and
he qualified for the U.S. Open."
Buddy thinks Tyson's familiarity with the
team will help him adjust to the college atmo-
sphere.
"He's been down at the
course and hung around
with the guys," he said.
"He knows them all. That
comfort level will probably
help him next fall."
Tyson will probably
Buddy Alexander welcome the comfort be-
cause he has a feeling there
will be higher expectations.
"I think there will be added pressure from
the people in Gainesville who have seen
me play and know what I can do," he said.
"They'll probably expect a lot out of me, and I
expect a lot out of myself."
