Postgame crash claims lieutenant's life


By JESSICA PONN
Alligator Writer

They are told to watch out for certain
dangers while on patrol. But an officer simply
cannot prepare for some things, Gainesville
Police Department spokesman Lt. Keith
Kameg said.
Tuesday morning, his colleague and cose
friend was critically injured in what Kameg
called "one of those tragic anomalies."


While on crowd-management patrol three
hours after the UF basketball team won its lat-
-est national championship, Lt. Corey Dahlem
was hit and violently thrown to the pavement
by a truck traveling at highway speed on West
University Avenue near 17th Street.
The speed limit there is 35 mph.
Police arrested 21-year-old Austin J.
Wright, of Atlantic Beach, and said he was
drunk when his truck crashed into Dahlem. -
"You get trained for everything, but trust


"There is no training for what
to do when a drunk driver
hits you from behind."

Gainesville Police Department spokesman

me, there is no training for what to do when
a drunk driver hits you from behind," Kameg
said.


Dahlem was immediately transported to
Shands at UF, where he was listed in critical
condition.
Detective John Madsen said he was dev-
astated by the accident. He has worked with
Dahlem every night for the past four years.
Early Wednesday afternoon, Madsen said
he was hoping for the best but expecting the
worst.

Gators championships pay off in more ways than one


* OFFICIALS EXPECT INCREASES IN
APPLICANTS AND ALUMNI ACTIVITY.

By MADISON CHEATWOOD
Alligator Contributing Writer

During the past 12 months, rewards from
the two big-money national championships
rippled through UF. The third promises more
of the same.
From more activity at Emerson Alumni


Hall to more applications mailed to Criser
Hall, there are few places on campus that the
money and exposure generated by the titles
haven't reached. The university's academic
programs, which UF officials said aren't com-
peting with the athletics department, are also
reaping some of the benefits.
UF Provost Janie Fouke said in a phone
interview that even though the recent cham-
pionships don't directly contribute to UF's
academic programs, they increase the univer-
sity's "brand awareness" and result in more


applicants.
Manny Fernandez, the
chairman of the universi-
ty's Board. of Trustees, said
no amount of money could
buy the publicity UF has re-
ceived in the past year.
In a phone interview,
Fouke Fernandez said the cham-
pionships overshadow
academics to some extent. But, he said, this
isn't a problem for the university, as the added


exposure seeps into every part of campus.
"You don't have to choose this or that," he
said. "We are blessed at UF because we're so
strong in both."
Across the country, people are more aware
of UP in general, even when the attention is
sports-related, he said.
Fouke said the basketball players con-
ducted themselves well in interviews after
Monday's championship game. She said she

Changes to graduate entrance exam postponed


GRE would have been lengthened


By LINDSEY KARLIN
Alligator Contributing Writer


Good news for students gearing up
for graduate school: The GRE, a graduate
school entrance exam, will no longer be
changing its General Test format this fall.
The Educational Testing Service, which
produces the exam, announced Monday
in a press release that it was postponing


plans to launch the biggest changes to the
exam in its 55-year history.
The new exam was going to be imple-
mented worldwide Sept. 10, and no exam
was going to be offered in August one
of the most popular months for students to
take the test.
The new model of the exam would take
longer to finish four hours, compared to
its current two-and-a-half and be more


difficult. The cost would also be raised
from the existing $130 fee, and the test
would be offered fewer times a year.
However, after three months of de-
liberation, makers of the modified GRE


National
News


decided they would not
be able to accommodate
all the students at testing
centers that are using the


new exam.
No release date has been set for the new
model, which had already been postponed
for a year.


Russel Dingman, a UF junior who is
applying to graduate school for building
construction, said it makes sense that the
exam is not changing yet.
"If it's a standardized test, then I think
all students that are accepted into gradu-
ate school should have to take the same
test," Dingman said. "It's not fair that
some students get into graduate school
taking one exam that may or may not be
easier while other students applying to
the same grad school one year later have
to take a different exam."

Pants Party candidate


regains Senate seat


*.SG UNANIMOUSLY AP-
PROVED ALAN PASSMAN.

By JOANNA BLAZ
Alligator Writer
jblaz@alligator.org

After being stripped of his vic-
tory in the Student Government
spring elections, Alan Passman was
approved Tuesday night for a vacant
Student Senate seat the same one
he had won in February.
Passman, the only Pants Party
candidate to win in the elections,
was previously denied his seat by
the SG Supreme Court because of an
accusation by Gator Party support-
ers that Pants members had violated
an SG elections code.
Passman, the only one to apply
for the open seat, was recommended
at a Senate meeting Tuesday and
was approved unanimously by the
senators.
"Although I don't think it erases
the court's poor decision, I think
it's a step in the right direction,"
Passman said.


"I hope to represent students in
their best interest," he added, "I'm
excited to serve."
Passman said that during his
term, he plans to push many issues
relevant to graduate students, such
as improving polling locations at the
College of Engineering.
Former student
senator and Gator
supporter John
Clayton Brett filed
a complaint with
the SG Elections
Commission
that stated Pants
Passman members had
suppressed voter
turnout by passing out "I Voted"
stickers, which were deemed illegal
campaign materials.
The issue was then referred to the
Supreme Court for a final decision.
Although Passman said he
stopped passing out the stickers
when a cease-and-desist order
was filed against Pants, the court
disqualified Pants from the spring
elections and took away Passman's
victory.

STUDENT LIFE

Titles attract attention for athletic training program


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's national championships are bringing
attention to more than the university and its
celebrated athletes.
Athletic trainers are also receiving more
recognition with the rising number of national
titles.
There has been an increase in interest for
UF's Athletic Training Education Program,
which has received more than twice as many
applications as usual for the next school year.
Still, many Gators fans are not familiar
with these behind-the-scenes trainers or how
much time and effort they put in to help bring
national titles to the Swamp.


"A lot of people don't know who we are or
what we do," said applied physiology and ki-
nesiology senior Stacie Maxwell, who worked
with the UF football team last season.
As trainers, the students take care of the
athletes' daily needs, keep the training room
stocked, and provide water and other as-
sistance during practice, said junior Robert
Reimer, who works with the football team
through Athletic Training Education Program.
The program, which is only open to juniors
and seniors, accepts up to 20 students each
year out of about 24 to 28 applicants, said
Erik Wikstrom, the director of undergraduate
athletic training.
This spring, however, more than 40 stu-
dents applied to the program.


Wikstrom said the number of applicants
may have doubled because of the attention UF
got from winning the 2006 men's basketball
national championship.
"A lot of people don't know who we
are or what we do."
Stacle Maxwell
UF athletic trainer

A similar increase may occur next year
because of the 2006 football national cham-
pionship and the second men's basketball
championship, he said.
"I think it's very possible that next fall and
next spring, when we see transfer students


coming in, that a good number of them would
have been swayed by at least seeing UF in the
headlines and on national television and real-
izing that by being an athletic trainer, you can
work with these teams," Wikstrom said.
As an athletic training professional and
Gators fan, Wikstrom has no complaints about
what is causing some prospective students
to turn their attention to the athletic training
program.
"I love the major, love the profession, and
I certainly hope that we get more interest
and more excitement in the major," he said.
"If it means that bur (University Athletics
Association) teams are winning national
championships and that's how we get the
interest, then fine by me."


Cutting-edge heart


device saves child


* A SHANDS TEAM PER-
FORMED THE SURGERY.

By JONATHAN FERRANTE
Alligator Contributing Writer

This week, the Food and Drug
Administration will consider ap-
proving a lifesaving heart device
that made history for Shands at UF's
transplant teams.
Last September, 9-year-old
Alexzander Wood was the first child
in Florida to receive the EXCOR
Pediatric, a ventricular assist de-
vice produced by the Berlin Heart
company.
The mechanism works by using
two separate pumps to imitate the
pulsing action created by a natural
heart. The pumps are located out-
side the body and are surgically
fused to the patient's heart.
Until now, the German company
has only been able to use these life-
saving devices in the United States
with special case-by-case approval.
from the FDA. But the company is
submitting an application this week
for formal approval
"We have been working with the
FDA, and we are completely com-


mitted to the U.S. market," said Bob
Kroslowitz, the manager of clinical
affairs for Berlin Heart in North
America, in a phone interview.
The FDA has not given approval
to Berlin Heart because not enough
testing has been done. But in some
cases, such as Alexzander's, the re-
sult of not using such a device could
be fatal.
"There is no other
public device available for the
Health pediatric community,
and for some children
there is no other option," Kroslowitz
said.
In August 2006, doctors from UF
diagnosed Alexzander with a con-
dition that limits his heart's ability
to pump blood efficiently. Doctors
determined Alexzander would need
a transplant.
"Had the Berlin Heart device not
been an option, he would not have
been able to survive long enough
to wait for his donor," said Kim
Jamerson, spokeswoman for Shands
HealthCare.
In February, just more than four
months after receiving the Berlin
Heart device, Alexzander received a
heart transplant. He is now in good
condition.


Competition to increase among applicants


REACTION, from page 1

hoped that after high school students heard them,
they would want to come to school at UF
But, she said, that doesn't mean UF needs any
more applicants. The university received a re-
cord number of applications for the fall about
25,300, UF spokesman Steve Orlando said. The
number is up 8 percent from last year and 13 per-
cent from two years ago.
But how does the positive energy created by
the championships translate into. more applica-
tions and more interest?
While touring campus Tuesday after-
noon, Charisma Clark, 17, a junior at Miami
Northwestern Senior High School, said the rea-
son she's considering UF whereas she wasn't
before was that she was impressed with the
tour and that "you guys are the champions."
Clark said UF's success in sports isn't the sole rea-
son she's interested but a big sports school with
lots of school spirit is appealing.
Between UF and Florida State University, "UF
is on top," she said.
Also visiting campus Tuesday was Michael
Simpson, 16, of Berkmar High School in Lilbum,
Ga. He said he's a Gators fan, but that won't affect
his decision about where he goes to college.
"But you definitely wish you go to the school
where everyone is winning," Simpson said.
Other top-ranked institutions, such as the


University of Michigan and the University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill, also boast success-
ful athletics programs.
"But they aren't winning national champion-
ships like Florida is," Simpson said.
Even though, as Fouke said, UF already re-
ceives too many applications, a natural selection
process takes place with more students applying.
With roughly 6,600 openings allotted to the
freshman class every year, the standards for ac-
ceptance at UF are escalating, and the average
applicant's grade point average and SAT scores
are steadily rising, Orlando
said.
The UF Alumni Association
has also discovered how win-
ning can spark interest. Katie
Seay, the association's director
of membership and marketing,
estimated it's had a 10 percent
Orlando increase in membership over
the past year. And its brick pro-
gram, through which UF supporters pay to have
a messages engraved on bricks in Emerson Hall's
courtyard, is more successful than ever, she said.
For those who aren't connected to the univer-
sity, UF's recent on-the-field and in-the-classroom
successes make some wish they were.

About time

University Corners may

finally be built
In case you missed it, the building that used to house the
Starbucks and Apartment Hunters on the corer of West
University Avenue and 13th Street was demolished.
Nothing is left but mounds of lumber and concrete rubble.
The battle between the building's tenants and University
Comers' developers had raged since fall 2005. But hey,
what's a year and a half of an eyesore at one of Gainesville's
busiest intersections?
And at least construction can begin now. Well, in
December at the earliest. The legal process surprise,
surprise is what's holding up construction.
The University Comers project has been in the works
since fall 2004 and was originally planned to be open for
business in fall 2006. And here we are in spring 2007.
We've seen small countries set up entire governments
and economies in less time than this.
But enough bitching about the slow progress. Finally, the
last stages of this monstrous project can begin. Buildings
can be erected, and the city will eventually be able to say
it was a wise decision to grant the development millions of
dollars in tax breaks.
We're looking forward to the day when the complex
is complete. We hope there will be palm trees swaying in
the breeze, fountains spurting water against a background
of ambient music and twinkling lights strung through
the shrubbery. We'll meander through the eight stories of
condos, hotels and stores shopping bags in one hand
and a Venti mocha light Frappuccino in the other. Because
you can't put up a new development without including a
Starbucks, can you?


In the hot seat


Justice is served to an
extent. Alan Passman,
the Pants Party sena-
tor who was stripped of
his seat, was approved
Tuesday night for the seat
he already had won.
Passman lost the seat af-
ter the Student Government
Supreme Court ruled that
Pants had violated SG elec-
tion codes.
The SG Elections
Commission issued Pants
a cease-and-desist order to
keep members from pass-
ing out more "I Voted"
stickers, and Passman said
he did not hand out any
stickers after the order was
given.
We didn't agree with
the Supreme Court's deci-
sion that all winning Pants
members lose their seats.


But the only Pants '.win-
ner was Passman. And he
didn't do anything wrong.
But the good news was
that the Supreme Court al-
lowed Passman to reapply
for his seat.
We're glad the Student
Senate approved him unan-
imously Tuesday night. It's
nice to know that all those
Gator Party senators who
were just sworn into office
in March, along with the
rest of the senators from
other parties, didn't let par-
ty lines prevent them from
doing the right thing.
Now that we have a full
staff of senators, they can
get on to doing more impor-
tant things like issuing a
resolution congratulating
the basketball team.

Florida must join global warming fight


n April Fools' Day, the U.S. Supreme Court made
one of its most sensible decisions in years, granting
the Environmental Protection Agency authority to
regulate greenhouse gases that contribute to global warm-
ing. Let's hope it wasn't a prank.
Prior to this decision, the Bush administration already
widely praised for its stunning and inventive use of hypoc-
risy used the "Clean Air Act" as its excuse for claiming
no governmental right or duty to cap carbon emissions on
a national scale. The act did not specifically mention carbon
dioxide or other heat-trapping gases; therefore, we have no
right to protect our own environment. Interesting.
Under the new ruling, the EPA will not be forced to
regulate automobile and factory emissions, but it won't get
off easily by ignoring them. Unless the agency can provide
scientific evidence that carbon emissions do not contribute
to global warming, we will be seeing some changes in the
way our cars and factories run.
And based on the United Nations' recent study claiming
global warming to be "unequivocal" and 99 percent likely
to be influenced by human activities, a national effort to
fight it looks certain.
I'm sorry, but scientific doubt is no longer an excuse.
If you still can't admit that global warming is a real thing,
move to Venus which is a hell of 854 degrees Fahrenheit
from excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
The most important aspect of the Supreme Court deci-
sion is the opportunity it creates for state governments.
With federal government support, states can seriously
- and effectively-begin discussing how they will combat
the rising temperatures. That is, if they already haven't.
In 2006, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed
a bill that would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 25
percent in California by 2020. It offers cap-and-trade plans
that allow companies with emissions below the cap to


sell credits to companies above
the cap. Washington, Oregon,
Arizona and New Mexico have
joined California with similar
plans.
What the hell is Florida doing?
Todd Portnowitz We're surrounded by water, and
we're a hurricane magnet. We
have beaches to preserve, forests
to protect. We have tourists to pro-
tect from sweating and retired people to keep from dying.
Yet we have no specific goals, no detailed plans, no
laws, no incentives. Florida should be at the forefront of the
fight against global warming. Other states should be like,
"Damn, look how cool Florida is."
Former Gov. Jeb Bush said he wouldn't watch Al Gore's
movie, "An Inconvenient Truth." That's fine. But he also
repealed a requirement for Floridians to have their auto
emissions checked annually. Luckily, he's out of office.
Gov. Charlie Crist has said the state should address the
issue of global warming. In fact, in February, he and three
others in the Florida Cabinet said the state should address
climate change and its possible effects.
So do it. We didn't elect mouths to run our government.
We elected people, with limbs and torsos, and hands to hold
pens and sign bills. We're the Sunshine State for God's sake
- let's use the sun. Our neglect of solar energy in Florida is
borderline criminal.
Fortunately, I've come up with an even better alternative
for Florida to cut its carbon dioxide emissions in half: Only
emit carbon dioxide during the day. With only daytime
emissions, we wouldn't have to worry about all those pesky
nocturnal emissions.

Letters to the Editor
Donovan must stay for a chance at legacy
A native Gainesvillian and lifelong Gator,
I live in Kentucky and am surrounded this
week by high speculation and titillation about
the sure-to-relocate men's basketball, coach
Billy Donovan. I am biting my tongue, but I'm
filled with trepidation. Dear God, may wis-
dom prevail in the Donovan household!
What is wisdom? Play a parlor game with
yourself: Who are the greatest college coaches
of all time in either football or basketball?
Bear Bryant (University of Alabama), John
Wooden (UCLA), Joe Patero (Penn State),
Steve Spurrier (UF), Dean Smith (University
of North Carolina), Bobby Knight (Indiana
University). The qualifier must be added,
and there's the rub: Great coaching dynasties
are only created during long tenures at great
universities.
We are all proud of and grateful for the
head-spinning achievements of Donovan and
this remarkable Gators basketball team. But
if Donovan is looking for the next challenge
at the next level, it would not be to pack his
suitcases and redeem Kentucky basketball.
He's already proven that he can build or
rebuild a great college program. The next
level would be to build a dynasty like the
coaches listed above did. The next level would
be to end, once and for all, the insidious and
.frustrating maxim, still in existence outside of
Gainesville, that UF "is a football school."
Of course we're a football school! But for


heaven's sake, we are now also a basketball
school and Billy, if you want to go down in
history as one of the truly storied men of the
game, stay with us and perpetuate the legacy.
We don't expect championships every year,
but we need another decade of high-level play
to lodge Florida next to UCLA in the history
books. If you leave, we lose that opportunity,
and you lose it, too. Leave, and become just
another great coach living out of a suitcase.
Stay, and achieve something the world rarely
sees .- a legendary program and a career
without a modern equal and beyond price.
Vivian Ruth Sawyer
Louisville, Ky. resident



We should empathize with cop and driver
The Alligator's April 4 editorial on the
drunk driving accident that killed Gainesville
Police Department Lt. Corey Dahlem focused
on anger. The editors were "pissed off" at the
drunk driver and "pissed off" that a man who,
by all accounts, was a good police officer and
family man was injured on such a joyous night.
Though there is nothing inherently wrong
with this response, I would like to have seen
the editorial board charge into other emotions.
When a tragedy like this happens, I think a
more holistic empathy is'the best course.
Early Wednesday, a man described as


having many friends, a loving family and
colleagues who liked and respected him was
critically injured. This occurrence is very sad,
but it is also a challenge for us to strive to make
ourselves better, love our families more, watch
our friends' backs more closely and thank a
cop who does the badge proud.
We shouldn't stop, however, with empathy
for the victim. The perpetrator of this horren-
dous accident is human as well. The young
man made a horrible decision and will pay
for it for the rest of his life. Can't we look at
his mistakes and realize that we all have made
bad decisions in the past that hurt or could
have hurt-- other people?
To some extent, the lack of concern the
drunk driver showed for his fellow travelers
on this earth resides in us all. This is a great
time to honor Lt. Dahlem by doing our best to
diminish its impact on both our lives and the
,lives of others.
Kevin Fridy
UFgraduate student



Ad's publicity only incites more anger
I did not see the controversial pro-Israel
advertisement that ran in the Alligator. I did,
however, find great satisfaction in all of the
letters to the editor the Alligator published
regarding it. Some students found the ad


THURSDAY, APRIL 5, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 7


offensive because it assumes that all of UF
agrees with it, in part because of its affiliation
with Student Government.
To all of thoseprotestingit: Congratulations.
You have given the makers of this ad more
publicity than they could have ever hoped
for. Casual readers of the Alligator most likely
passed over this advertisement, either not
noticing it or not caring enough to take it in.
Now, all Alligator readers know about it. You
gave the ad the credibility and lasting power
it hoped for in the first place. Is that what you
wanted? What is the purpose of your protest?
There is an unjust war going on in
Iraq that has caused the death of more
than 60,000 Iraqi civilians, according to
www.iraqbodycount.org, A study overseen by
John Hopkins University's Bloomberg School
of Public Health reported that as many as
655,000 Iraqi civilians have died as a result of
this war. Instead of rallying against words in a
newspaper, why not protest for a real cause?
If you want to fire back on this issue,
then print an ad that says you don't support
Israel and lists the reasons why other people
shouldn't. Protesting this ad will yield no
.positive results; it will only further divide
those with opposing viewpoints. If we argue
about Israel and Palestine this much in the
United States, how will we ever have peace in
the Middle East?

Local officers quietly grieve for fallen friend, an officer


PASSING, from page 1

Madsen's partner, Detective
Joseph Mayo, said that is the sort
of attitude you've got to have when
you're a police officer.
"That's our job," he said. "At any
minute, the worst can befall us."
At 2:51 p.m. Wednesday, Dahlem
died, according to the Shands public
relations department.
His death marks the first time
since 2001 that a GPD officer has
died from injuries sustained in the
line of duty.

INESCAPABLE GLOOM
Morning meetings are a time for
jokes and laughter at GPD, Mayo
said.
But not Tuesday morning.
Not Wednesday morning, either.
"It was really depressing," he
said of the mood. "It will be gloomy
around here for a while."
Kameg said no one at the sta-
tion wanted to talk Wednesday
afternoon.
"Everybody wanted to be left
alone," he said.


GPD needed 40 officers to man-
age the crowds Tuesday at the
Gainesville Regional Airport for the
basketball team's arrival.
"Nobody wanted to go," Kameg
said.
Mayo, on the other hand, was ea-
ger to get his mind off of the accident
and said he was glad to be kept busy
with work because it distracted him
temporarily Mayo had been joking
with Dahlem on the chaotic streets
around the UF campus shortly be-
fore he was struck.
"We've all got a switch," he said,
explaining how he and his col-
leagues are trained to block out dis-
tractions and focus on their tasks.
But, Madsen said, "This isn't just
some guy that we work with."
Dahlem worked at GPD for more
than 20 years and touched many
lives, he said.
Thinking about his friend's up-
coming funeral, Madsen said the
saddest he has ever been was at an-
other police officer's funeral he re-
cently attended. He said thousands
of people attended the funeral, but
fewer than 200 had ever met the offi-
cer. Madsen said he didn't know the


man, but that didn't stop him from
breaking down.
"It's absolutely gut-wrenching,"
he said.
An officer's funeral is especially
difficult for men who work with the
knowledge that they could be killed
on the job at any time, he said.
"You get a question answered,"
he said. "Who will be at mine?"

CRIMINAL CONSEQUENCES
Wright stood in court for the first
time Wednesday morning.
Although Dahlem then was
not predicted to live, he was still
breathing when Wright was charged
with DUI resulting in serious bodily
injury and with leaving the scene of
the accident, said Spencer Mann, the
spokesman for the State Attorney's
Office.
According to Mann, Wright has
hired a private attorney and will
face arraignment, which means he
will enter a plea within the next
several weeks.
Because Dahlem later died,
Wright will likely face an elevated
charge of DUI manslaughter, Mann
said.


That crime is a first-degree felony,
UF law professor Jennifer Zedalis
said. Florida statutes mandate a
maximum sentence of 30 years for
DUI manslaughter, she said.
However, Zedalis said, a judge
can depart from the standard sen-
tencing guidelines, according to
Florida statutes, if the prosecution
can prove Wright knew he was kill-
ing a police officer at the time of the


Lt. Corey Dahlem


of 20 years
crime.
That, she said, is unlikely because
the fact that Wright will be charged
with manslaughter means he had no
intent to kill. If he did, they would
charge him with a higher degree of
homicide, she said.
The Florida Highway Patrol
is still investigating the accident,
Mann said.

OFFICER REMEMBERED
Dahlem was born April 5, 1961,
in St. Petersburg.
He graduated from Florida State
University in 1984 and joined GPD
the following year.
Madsen said he was extremely
well-liked and wasn't the type of
officer to dwell on rumors or poli-
ticking.
Kameg, who has known Dahlem
for more than 21 years, said he was
the sort of man who would offer
the shirt off of his back for anyone
in need. He described him as a de-
voted family man and a dedicated
FSU football fan.
His funeral is scheduled for
Monday at 11 a.m.,at the Trinity
Methodist Church.

* Sex without love too common in


0 Lauren is 21. She's smart, pretty and
loves to dance.
It's Thursday, so she hits up The Top
* for drinks before dancing at The Atlantic.
After some shots of tequila, several beers
and a sake bomb, she stumbles home with
@ her roommate's cute friend, Ricky. She
doesn't know him very well, but they've
had a good time dancing and laughing.
S-After another drink at his place, one of
them teel brat e enough to make a mo ve
and the\ -tart ki-siring. The kiss leads to
more and sion the\ are htumbling around
beh een the sheets.
Se\ with RicLk was nothing spec-


tacular, but Lauren had been longing for
a physical connection for months since she
and her boyfriend of two years broke up.
And Ricky was there.
But she felt like something was miss-
ing. Sleeping with Ricky wasn't the same
as it was with her ex. She didn't know any
of his favorite places to be touched, and
he definitely didn't know hers. She didn't
want to lie in his arms and talk afterward
beca u~.e she didn't have much to say.
A te'i\ weks ago, I was playing "Never
Have I Ever" with some friends.
Someone said, "never have I ever had
se\ -with someone I love."


I picked up my beer and laughed,
assuming that this was a silly question
- you know, those ones that don't tell
anything new or scandalous because the
answer is obvious.
I assumed that everyone else would be
sipping their drink, showing that at least
one of their sexual encounters had come
from love.
I was shocked to discover that only two
out of the five of us could say that we'd
been in love when we'd "made love."
After my surprise subsided, I felt sad.
Now, don't think I'm naive enough to
assume everyone having sex is doing it


)llege A
with someone
he or she loves. I KELLY SEREIKAS
understand that
people get lonely and want to be held.
Alcohol frees people from inhibitions, and
sometimes hormones take over.
That's fine for some people. But I had
always assumed everyone had done it, at
least once, when he or she was in love.
Call me old-fashioned, but I still believe
that the best sex is with someone you care
about. Still, I'm discovering that more
and more people are "making love" with
people they don't actually love or even
really like, for that matter.

aws shoppers


A man wearing a large cowboy
hat smiled and pointed to a small
posterboard resting on a table
behind two cartons of milk. He
unrolls the worn edges and shows
a faded picture of three children in
plaid shirts similar to his own.
"See these three?" he asked.
"They were raised on grass-fed
milk."
Bubba Kurtz sells Grade A
pasteurized, non-homogenized
milk from Kurtz & Sons Dairy
at farmers' markets throughout
Florida, including the Union
Street Farmers' Market in down-
town Gainesville and the Haile
Plantation Farmers' Market.
At farmers' markets, shop-
pers can buy produce, plants and
baked goods directly from the
people who made them
"You can really purchase
anything for your fridge or your
yard." said Traci Stidham, who
sells flowering trees in High
Springs and at the Highway -41
market.
Farmers' markets have risen
in popularity the past 10 years
because of growing interest in
farm-to-customer production, the
U.S. Department of Agriculture
reported in 200o. The most recent
directory stated that 4,385 tanm-
ers' markets operate m the United
States, representing an 15 percent
increase from 2004.

Bringing people together
People visit farmers' markets
for many reasons.
They can create an alternative
grocery-shopping atmosphere.
At local supermarkets custom-
ers comb through bins ot wax-cov-

who grew them.
"People can talk directly to the
farmer and ask about the food
they're buying." said Juan Carlos
Rodriguez. the Haile Plantation
Market manager.
Leo Polopolus is a retired UT
professor of food and resource eco-
normcs and sells an array of pro-
duce, from pears to persimmons
to pecans He said his customers
return because they appreciate the
newly picked produce and like to
support local growers.
"They get fresh produce and
keep the money in the commu-
nity," Polopolus said. "Everybody


wins."
. After retiring from a career
in computer programming, Elfie
Hintze began selling herbs at the
market on Highway 441. Even
before she became a vendor, she
preferred to purchase local food
rather than food shipped from
California.
Farmers' markets also foster
a small-town vibe. People bring
their children, walk their dogs, lis-
ten to live music and mingle with
neighbors.
Eric Ogden. who shops at
the Union Street market every
Wednesday, said he goes to the
farmers' market as much for the


social life as for the fresh produce.
He and a group of friends who
met at the market even started a
"farmers' market potluck."
Every Wednesday night, they
hold a drum circle around a bon-
fire and eat food made from their
fresh produce.
"Markets are about grow-
ing good food and community,"
Ogden said.
Something for everyone

Market, located in the heart of
downtown Gainesville near the
Hippodrome Theatre, has the wid-
est variety of goods. While most
farmers markets sell only food,
the Union Street market also hosts
vendors of handmade jewelry,
clothing, soap and more.
The mixture of patrons includes
everyone from health-conscious
parents pushing strollers to trendy
students seeking cheap produce.
The Haile Plantation Farmers'
Market and the 441 market, both
held Saturday mornings between
8:30 a.m. and noon, are quieter
than the one at Union Street and
host a clientele of mostly families.
At the Haile Market, shoppers
can meander down shaded streets
in front of picturesque storefronts
and lunch at one of the nearby ca-
fes. The 441 market provides small
red wagons for customers to tow
their purchases.

Ceramics exhibition expresses memory, society, self


CARLY BLUSTEIN I AVENUE WRITER


Ka-Hei Fok delicately adds
the last crane to her structure and
stands back to admire it.
The more than 200 cranes are
reminiscent of a simpler time,
bringing her back home to Hong
Kong, where she made origami
with her mother as a child.
Meanwhile, Emily Covell uses
her art to make a social statement
about the role of women in the
workplace.
These artists are two of the 10
UF seniors exhibiting their work


at the "This Side Up" ceramics
BFA show at the WARPHaus
Gallery this week. The closing
reception is Friday from 7 p.m.
to 9 p.m.
The students of Advanced
Ceramics all start with the same
clay, but what they turn it into
makes each piece unique.
"It's meditative," said Fok,
who has made more than 2,000 ce-
ramic cranes this year. "I like mak-
ing things that amaze people."
Most of the pieces in the show


relate to self-expression, societal
issues or childhood memories.
Andrew Cho, the recent re-
cipient of the Regina Brown
Undergraduate Student
Fellowship from the National
Council on Education for the
Ceramic Arts, will. use his schol-
arship money to travel to the
Southwest after graduation and
create molds of what he sees.
For This Side Up, Cho illustrates
a line from one of Ovid's Roman
love poems, "Hasten gently, you
horses of the night."
Ashley Jonas won an award


uma a Church


in the National Juried Exhibition
from the College Art Association.
Her vessel exhibition for This Side
Up approaches difficult issues of
childhood.
"Most people think it's just a
pottery show," said professor Nan
Smith, the faculty adviser for the
show and a teacher at UF for 27
years. "It's so much more than
that."
Smith's four graduate ceramics
students are presenting an exhibi-
tion of their own, called Societal
Reductions, in the Reitz Union.
It includes work by Melissa Diaz,


Tommy Frank, Jessica Orlowski
and Shawn Rommevaux. The
closing reception will be*April 13
from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
"Artists reflect society," Smith
said. "They can tell you some-
thing about your own world that
you may not have perceived. You
don't have to go to big cities like
New York or Chicago tqosee cut-
'ting-edge artwork. You can see it
right here in Gainesville."
The This Side Up exhibition
is at the WARPHaus Gallery, 818
NW First Ave., located behind
Taco Bell on University Avenue.


KELLY SEREIKAS + AVENUE WRITER
I can't say I've ever been downtown at 9 a.m. on a
Sunday. I can't even remember the last time I was out
of my pajamas that early on a weekend. On Sunday
morning, however, I found myself (in dress pants) at
Friendship Baptist Church, nestled a few blocks away
from the bars, businesses and bustle of University
Avenue.
As my car rolled up, a sharply dressed man stand-
ing on the front steps smiled and waved like he had
been waiting for me all morning. He shook my hand
and opened the door to a large-but HOSpitalitly
cozy church.
I've always gone to a Catholic Idal at plac
church, where early arrivals are the Hilt I fell e
norm, so I was surprised to be the scored here.I
first person in the building at 9:20
a.m. for a 9:30 a.m. service. I situated Iir noticed t
myself in one of the non-creaking I was gretel
pews cose to the back of the church, handshakes i
but before I could say, "Amen," an
older man with a golden tooth was hui
approaching me.
"Miss, you can't sit back here all alone," he said.
"Come on up to the front."
Hospitality is always a big deal at places of worship,
but I felt especially welcomed here. Each parishioner
noticed that I was new. I was greeted with smiles,
handshakes and even a few hugs. One man gave me a
songbook, and he sat me next to a woman with a Bible
in case I needed to reference it.
There was even an official time during the service
dedicated to the recognition of guests. Being the only
guest, I stood up and introduced myself, then every-
body prayed for me. At the end of the service, everyone
told me to come again, and one woman gave me her
contact information in case I ever needed anything.
As a Catholic, I'm used to efficiency. The only times
Mass goes over 75 minutes are Christmas, Easter and
the occasional times when guest priest Father So-and-


so would repeat himself and lose track of time. This
Sunday, I spent one hour in Sunday school and two
and a half in worship service.
Another thing I noticed about these Baptists was the
plethora of words they use for the man/woman/being
up top. While I normally refer to him as God, Father
or Jesus, they were much more creative. They used
"Father God," "Lord Jesus," "Father Lord," "Master
Father" and basically any combination of Master,
Father, Lord, Jesus or God.
I expected the music to be soulful and inspiring, but
it was better than I anticipated. The
s always a big choir may have been small, but the
s8 f WOrship, sound it created was monumental.
GC lWly wel- The singers produced impressive
ieciali harmonies as they swayed back and
Each parlshlo- forth in their burgundy robes. The

SuIt e ilm tamer Little Richard as his fingers
WIith S @IIS, danced upon the piano keys. He
nld even a few shouted with joy and "Oohhhh'd!"
oS, and "Wheee'd!" into the micro-
phone.
The choir members weren't the
only people who could carry a tune. All the worship-
pers sitting around me sounded beautiful as they
bellowed, howled, whooped and wailed to praise the
Lord.
Most of'the songs were about mercy, forgiving or
thanking. I learned throughout the service that if I
couldn't always.catch the specific words spoken by
singers or preachers, I could understand their spiri-
tuality by feeling their emotions through their shouts
and amens. I've been to worship services where people
raise their hands, cry and carry on, but I'm often skep-
tical. Here, however, I believe that every emotion was
authentic.
I had a great time at Friendship Baptist Church, and
I recommend it to anyone looking for a heartwarming
Sunday.

Local 'Votive Pit' nominated for best feature in India


ASHLEY HOFFMAN I AVENUE WRITER
Writer Shamrock McShane isn't shy about talking up his
film.
"Legislators, school boards and administrators should be
made to watch 'The Votive Pit' with their eyelids propped
open like the dude in 'Clockwork Orange' who's being cured
of his sado-masochistic tendencies and even they would get
off on it, because the music rocks," said Shamrock, whose
film "The Votive Pit" depicts the maladies of public educa-
tion.
The film, set in the universal Odyssey Middle School,
catapults the viewer into the role of the student in a darkly
hilarious look at the education system in which the teachers
may be at their wit's end but have not lost their wit.
Directed by his son, Mike McShane, "The Votive Pit"
has demanded attention abroad, as well. It was recently


nominated for best feature at the Pumelo Independent Film
Festival in India.
"The movie's success in India at the Pumelo Indie Fest is
an indication of the world's desire to know what has gone
wrong with American education and why a country that
grew out of the ideas of the Enlightenment suddenly has
turned so dark and oppressive," Shamrock said.
Shamrock plays Bald Man, the eccentric and inquisitive
eighth-grade science teacher who de-
"~' prives himself of sleep and food in an
-' -. attempt to purify himself.
P "- < Sara Morsey gives a stunning
i and convincing portrayal of Edna, a
I teacher whose hope for the future has
been drained by her ceaselessly disap-
S..f; p.., pointing career.
-'. Dealing with a homicidal 14-year-


old?
No matter simply consult the Discipline Cookbook,
provided by the administration, whose daily announce-
ments and words of encouragement are about as valuable as
a Band-Aid is to a gaping wound.
The absence of students speaks to the widening'gulf be-
tween instructors and their students.
True to the film's natural feel, the sounds of clamoring
children are recorded from a real Gainesville school.
S"It's not some makeshift recording of eight to 10 kids wail-
ing that we doubled up," Mike said. "That's how it sounds in
your school. It is real."
The film argues that public education's bureaucracy is
turning a deaf ear to those sounds, and in so doing, sacrific-
ing spirit and ideas in exchange for efficiency.
Catch a screening of "The Votive Pit" at the Hippodrome
Theatre on Monday at 6 p.m.

Taussig may have strongest leg of three

the same time, its your boy. You spend pretty
much every day with him, and you want him
to do well."
While the two agreed that they fully sup-
port each other, they admitted they want to be
the guy in the spotlight come September.
"I always want him to do his best, but I
want my best to be better," Phillips said.
Taussig, who probably has the strongest leg
of the three, would have had a great chance to
start for SMU this season.
But the Winter Park native transferred to
UF late last fall because he wanted to come
back to his honie state.
"He's got a real strong leg, but he's pretty
raw right now," Phillips said. "He has a lot of
stuff to work on. He's not too accurate, but he's
probably got one of the biggest legs I've ever
seen."
Taussig agreed.


"Consistently, it probably isn't where it
needs to be," Taussig said..
For now, the three are alternating snaps
with the starting special teams unit.
Phillips and Ijjas said they are confident in
each other, regardless of who comes out with
the job.
"Either Joey or I can both do the
job. We'll be fine this year."
Jonathan Phillips
UF kicker

"Compared to last year, the difference
in Joey's and my kicking is just incredible,"
Phillips said. "Either Joey or I can both do the
job. We'll be fine this year."
However, there is a difference of opinion
among the two when it comes to who should
start.
"I'd put myself in at field goals and prob-
ably Joey at kickoffs," Phillips said.
Argued Ijjas, "I'd do the exact opposite."

Early Returns


Levine makes big impact in little time at UF


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Writer


After freshman Jesse Levine finishes his singles match, he
makes his way to the stands to find his parents, Nathan and
Brenda, and younger brother Daniel, 15.
What seems like the ideal supportive family has a sad twist.
Daniel, a huge Gators fan, has ulcerative colitis, a form of in-
flammatory bowel disease.
Nevertheless, the Levine family is there for Jesse at each
home dual match, win or lose.
Except there hasn't been a loss yet.

Southern Migration
Levine grew up in Ottawa, Canada, a country widely
known for its eat, sleep and breathe hockey culture.
As did many kids, Levine played many sports growing up,
including hockey, Canada's pastime. It was his father, who
played tennis at Penn State, who first got Levine involved in
the sport. His brother's condition led the family to move to
Boca Raton when Jesse was 13.
"Being in the warm climate all year round is much, much
better for (Daniel)," Levine said. "It was just a plus for my ten-
nis."
Soon after arriving in Florida, Levine knew it would be
easier to concentrate on one or two sports than several at once.
Tennis was the natural choice because he was better at it than
he was at any other sport. He began training at the Evert Tennis
Academy and enrolled in classes at Boca Prep International
School across the street. A normal day for Levine included
school followed by tennis training at the academy with Boca
Raton Prep soccer games providing the nightcap.
Levine remembers being antsy many days during the last
period of school, itchingto get out and play.
After two years at Boca Raton Prep and the academy, Levine
moved his training to the IMG Bollettieri Tennis Academy in
Bradenton. IMG houses some of the top facilities in a number
of sports, offering top juniors a chance to train with top profes-
sionals. Such training costs in the tens of thousands of dollars.
Levine relished the opportunity.
"I got to train with a lot of top professional players that not a
lot of people can say they've done," Levine said. "It was a really
cool experience."
Along with moving to IMG, Levine started playing interna-
tional junior tournaments at age 15 through the International
Tennis Federation. His travel schedule did not allow him to
attend a traditional high school anymore, so Levine enrolled in
the University of Miami's online high school program.
Levine missed out on two years of the high school experi-
ence but does not regret his decision.
"That was a sacrifice I was willing to make," he said. "A lot
of people can't say they've been to a lot of the places I've been
to."

British Beginning
Levine burst onto the tennis radar when he teamed with
Michael Shabaz to take home the 2005 Wimbledon Juniors
Doubles Championship.
"That was for sure one of my best highlights of my junior
career," Levine said.
Levine remembers getting cheered against because one
of his opponents, Andrew Kennaugh, was an Englishman, a
hometown hero. Playing together for almost a year, Levine and
Shabaz had become best friends.
Levine's entire family made the trip to see him play in the
final, which was on one of the All England Lawn Tennis and
Croquet Club's biggest show courts. To play on grass was fun
for Levine because it is a little-used surface.
The fact that it came on the grounds of Wimbledon added
to the moment.
Always the Gators advocate, Levine is trying to persuade
Shabaz to attend UF, although Shabaz appears to favor
Virginia, which is closer to his family. Not to be overshadowed
by his doubles play, Levine advanced to the quarterfinals of the
Wimbledon juniors singles draw.
Levine would make his singles breakthrough at the USTA
Junior Hard Court National Championships.
The winner gets a wild card into the draw at the U.S. Open.
In 2005, Levine lost in the semifinals. The next year saw him
back for revenge, looking to take home the win.
Levine would not be denied early on as he advanced to the
finals. The day of the title match, however, Levine came down
with food poisoning that left him unable to compete. He was
left with no choice but to forfeit the final to his opponent, top-
ranked junior Donald Young.


"I had a really dose match in the semis and I got over that
hump," Levine said. "That night, I don't know what happened.
I just got really sick."
An ambulance was called in the morning, and medics
administered IVs to Levine. Nothing was able to get him in
playable condition, however. He tries not to let it bother him, as
he knows it is something he could not control. Besides, Levine
realizes, who knows what would have happened if he'd ended
up winning?
He may never have come to...

Orange and Blue Debut
Gainesville, where the freshman continues to place his hold
on court one at Ring Tennis Complex.
Currently ranked third, Levine has yet to lose in his 14 colle-
giate singles matches, including 11 against ranked competition.
The freshman has dropped two sets the entire season.
Levine also plays No. 1 doubles with junior Greg Ouellette,
and the duo is 11-2 this season, rising to No. 6 in the rankings.
The Southeastern Conference named Levine Player of the
Week twice this season. That is a feat that has been achieved
only one other time in UF history by Jeff Morrison (2000).
"My dad was like, Jesse, you got named SEC Player of the
Week again,'" Levine said. "I was pretty overwhelmed. Its a
honor to be named that twice."
Individually, Levine's crowning achievement came when
he defeated the nation's No. 1 player, John Isner from Georgia.
Isner had come into the match with 46 straight dual-match
singles victories. Levine says it's all about the team, however.
Many of Levine's individual accomplishments will be in
vain if the No. 18 Gators (9-5,4-3 SEC) cannot pick up the nec-
essary victories on the other courts.
"We're a team," Levine said. "We win and lose as a team."
How did Levine end up a Gators athlete? He talked about it
with his family, of course.
"I wasn't 100 percent set on turning pro," Levine said about
leaving IMG. "I felt that Coach (Andy) Jackson and (assistant)
coach (Jeremy) Bayon had a lot to offer."
Levine laughs when asked how many colleges recruited
him. The final selection circle included UF, Illinois, Vanderbilt
and Georgia. Levine wanted to be able to play outdoor tennis
all year. When the team traveled to Illinois on Feb. 13, the bliz-
zard outside the tennis arena proved Levine's point.
"It was a little weird going back (to Illinois)," Levine said.
"They recruited me pretty heavily. Ijust felt that Coach Jackson
and Coach Bayon had a lot more to offer. Playing inside tennis
more than outside tennis didn't really appeal to me."
In the end, the fact that his family could attend almost every


dual match gave UF an undeniable edge.
Add in some Gators spirit, and Levine was sold.
came back again for a football game," Levine s!d, "and I
knew it was the place to be."

Pro Postponement
Levine has no regrets at putting off his professional career.
"Some people think if you go to school, it's not a good
thing," Levine said. "So far my ranking's gone up since I've
been in school."
Besides, Levine tasted pro tournaments as early as 17,
playing low-level ATP events during his last year of juniors
competition. He even picked up his first ATP point as a junior.
While Levine was winning some qualifying matches, he surely
wasn't having unbelievable success.
"Some people think if you go to school, it's
not a good thing. So far my ranking's gone up
since I've been in school."
Jesse Levine
UF tennis player

In fact, Levine missed the Gators' first dual match of the
season, against Central Florida on Jan. 31, because he was at
the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships.
Levine advanced to the main draw but lost in round-robin
play.
Levine's consolation prize? Returning to UF and facing
Furman the next day, where he earned his first collegiate win,
6-2, 6-2. In the following dual match, Levine led the Gators to a
4-3 upset of then-No. 2 Baylor.
He receivedawild card into the BMW Tennis Championship,
where he lost 7-6(4), 6-4 to Gael Monfils. Levine says he has
noticed a difference in his strength and maturity in pro tourna-
ments. He has also been able to play loose, with no pressure of
needing money to survive on as a pro does.
"When I go out there, I don't have anything to lose," he said.
"I know if I'm done with the match, I'm going back to school
tomorrow."

Brotherly Bond
Despite being at school, Levine still talks daily to his brother
back home. Daniel is an avid golfer and regularly shows Jesse a
thing or two whenever he comes home. 3
Daniel is smart, though. He doesn't play'tennis. Truth be
told, Jesse may not even be Daniel's favorite Gators athlete.
"He wants to try and meet Tim Tebow one of these days,"
Levine said, laughing. "Hopefully if Tebow comes up to an-
other match, my brother will get a chance to meet him."

DE-Harvey done for spring with sports hernia


Junior will return for summer workouts


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer

Junior defensive end Derrick Harvey will
miss the rest of spring practice with a sports
hernia and will have surgery, UF coach Urban
Meyer said Wednesday.
Harvey broke out in his sophomore cam-
paign, leading the Gators with 13 tackles for
loss, three recovered fumbles and 11 sacks.
Meyer said he will return in two weeks,
just after the annual Orange and Blue scrim-
mage on April 14. Harvey -was at practice
Wednesday, but he was dressed in shorts and
a T-shirt.
Sop.Vlmore defensive end Jermaine


Cunningham is a candidate to replace
him as the top pass rusher in practice, and
Meyer said the coaching staff is pleased with
Cunningham's development.
DOE UPDATE: After his arrest
Early Sunday morning for
fighting, linebacker Dustin
Doe has received a verdict
FOotball from the football team's
leadership committee.
Meyer said in-house punishment has
been put in place, but Doe has not been sus-
pended.
NOT-SO-SHARP CORNERS: Meyer pointed out


positives at Wednesday's practice, but the de-
fensive backfield wasn't one of them.
"Where we're really behind is the comer
position," he said. "Wondy (Pierre-Louis) has
not really practiced with a pulled hamstring.
Ahmad Black's only been to a couple prac-
tices. Markihe (Anderson) is just now get-
ting back. (Jacques) Rickerson's missed four
(mock) games, hasn't had a lot of practice."
STANDING OUT: Runningback Kestahn Moore
is not the ideal speed back for Meyer's spread
offense, but he's been the best back in spring.
"Kestahn Moore is going to be our power
back," Meyer said. "And we powered it
home a few times (Wednesday)."
Middle linebacker Brandon Spikes is also
playing well in replacing Brandon Siler, who
left early for the NFL.


Phillips


leads class


of kickers

Last year, it was the story sports
writers were tired of writing and
Gators fans were tired of reading.
Despite kicker Chris Hetland's
struggles, UF coach Urban Meyer
never had the confidence in his
backups to make a change.
Now he doesn't have a choice.
Hetland is gone, and Jonathan
Phillips and Joey Ijjas will compete
for the job.
Greg Taussig, a transfer from
Southern Methodist, is a longshot
but is also in the mix.
"Phillips is No. 1," Meyer said.
"Phillips has actually kicked the
ball very well. The other guy who
is kicking the
ball very well is
Ijjas."
Phillips,
part of Meyer's
first recruiting
'class at UF, was
highly touted
Phillips and earned a
scholarship out
of high school, but he has yet to live
up to the hype.
Ijjas, a walk-on transfer from
East Carolina, came out of nowhere
to become the kickoff specialist last
season but has yet to attempt a field
goal or extra point at UE
"I'd say we're both actually
pretty similar," Ijjas said. "We both
have pretty strong legs, but some-
times accuracy comes into question
a little bit.
"Recently, we've both been
kicking the ball really well."
They were also watching from
the sideline when Hetland made
just 6 of 15 field goal attempts last
season.
"You always get a little frustrat-
ed (when you aren't in the game),"
Ijjas said. "We're out here compet-
ing all the time. You always want
to be that guy in that spot, but at
