VT's slain honored at UF candlelight vigil


By ERIN EHRLICH
Alligator Writer

The night was cold and rainy,
and the mood outside the Reitz
Union matched the weather.
People of all ages wore Virginia
Tech sweaters and hats at a can-
dlelight vigil Wednesday night on
the colonnade to remember the 32
killed on VT's campus Monday.
Some sported temporary tattoos
of the school's maroon "VT" logo.
Chatter was at a minimum
among the roughly 1,200 people
who attended the vigil. Tears
streamed down faces, and some
sobs were unsuccessfully re-
pressed.
Ashish Patel, a UF computer
science graduate student who
graduated from VT in 2004, wore
a VT sweatshirt to show his sup-
port.
"Being able to get a mental
image of those halls ... I've had
nightmares," Patel said. "A part
of me is hurting right now, but the
Hokies are a tight-knit group."
Several couples embraced,
while others held hands and
swayed as the University Gospel
Choir sang.
Joe and Sarah Kehoe, also
graduates of VT, said they got
married on the Drillfield at the
center of VT's campus, the place


where the school held its candle-
light vigil Monday night.
"It's the most innocent place
on earth," said Sarah Kehoe, a
UF molecular cell biology gradu-
ate student. "This is just not the
type of thing that happens in
Blacksburg."
"It's unbelievable. The
whole thing is just unreal."
Joe Kehoe
UF engineering graduate student

Joe Kehoe, a UF engineering
graduate student, said that as an
undergraduate, he had classes
in Norris Hall, the engineering
building where 30 people were
killed and the gunman killed
himself.
"It's unbelievable," he said.
"The whole thing is just unreal."
Robin Neveu, a UF dance se-
nior- who is from Virginia, said
that many of her friends go to VT.
"It was very upsetting for me,
and I felt I needed to be here to
send my positive energy to people
who lost their loved ones," she
said.
Before the vigil started, people
lined up on the colonnade to
sign sympathy cards that were

Eviction without warning


By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

It's common knowledge that paying your
rent means you won't get evicted, right?
Wrong.
UF students like Hanneke Van De
Esschert, an art history student and Dutch
teaching assistant from the Netherlands, are
finding out that paying rent doesn't always
secure a place to live.
Van De Esschert, who has lived in her La
Mancha apartment at 914 SW Eighth Ave.
since last fall, did what her lease asked: She


paid a $300 security deposit and $489 per
month to her property manager, who trans-
ferred the payment to her unit's landlord.
Of course, none of this made a differ-
ence when. she received a
Local notice in December from
News Alachua County stating that
her landlord wasn't paying
his property's mortgage. The
property would have to be foreclosed, the
letter stated.
Her apartment was the bank's now, and
she and her two roommates weren't allowed
to stay. Wells Fargo sent her an eviction no-

Profs' attire ranges widely


* ONE WEARS COSTUMES.

By MADISON CHEATWOOD
Alligator Contributing Writer

At a university with no faculty dress
code, it's to each his own.
Jeffrey Needell wears a coat and tie to
work. John Mitchell sports a Hawaiian
shirt and jeans. And for Robert Emerson,
it depends. One day he's a pirate, and the
next he's Maleficent, the evil fairy from
"Sleeping Beauty."
Though only one of these UF profes-
sor chooses to wear a suit, all agree it
shouldn't be required.
But Ronald Lemos, a professor at
California State University, Los Angeles,
suggests that it should.
In a recent edition of Academe, a


magazine published by the American
Association of University Professors,
Lemos wrote that business attire is a sign
of respect for students
and the profession.
And addressing
S students by cour-
tesy titles shows them
they are important,
he wrote. When ad-
S dressing professors,
Emern students should do
the same.
Needell is an associate professor of
history at UF. He wears a coat and tie ev-
ery day at least when the temperature
is below 80 degrees. A suit creates dis-
tance between a professor and a student,
he said. But it also conveys authority and

Spray for peace: Painted T-shirts protest Iraq war


By MELISSA NOBLES
Alligator Contributing Writer

Some -T-shirts on campus
Wednesday advertised something
other than their wearers' love for
Ralph Lauren or Abercrombie.
They showed their support for
an end to the war in Iraq.
Amid an acrid cloud of aero-
sol, students on the Plaza of the
Americas spray-painted T-shifts
with anti-war messages.
This artistic alternative to
conventional picketing was orga-
nized by the UF group Students
Taking a Stand Against War.
Next to the group's main table
was a large box with about 100
used T-shirts.
Stencils were fashioned from
old menus, used pizza boxes and
surplus cardboard.
Sophomore Jake Dacks, one of
the organization's founders, 'said
the purpose of the event was to
create awareness about the Iraq
war.
"We wanted to show students
that protests are not just for
extremists," he said. "It can be
something fun, too."
Dacks said he hoped the
handmade T-shirts would help
encourage students to feel com-
fortable in expressing their dis-


sent against the.war.
UF sophomores Joseph Roach
and Jeremy Goureau, friends of
Dacks, decided to create similar
T-shirts they could wear when


hanging out together.
Goureau designed a T-shirt
that said, "War? Mmmnnoo!"
Meanwhile, Roach's shirt
blazoned the message: "Peace?


Mmmyeah!"
Roach said he thought the
event wouldn't have the big-
gest impact on its participants
- since they are the type of peo-

pie who feel comfortable voicing
their opinions already but on
the passersby.
"The bigger effect is on the
apathetic students passing by,"
he said. "It forces them to look
at anti-war messages and think
about it for a few moments."
"The entire American
public is apathetic. But if
we can get students at the
forefront of the movement,
it could produce a lot of
momentum."
Rob Kowalski
UF sophomore

Sophomore Rob Kowalski
thinks the issue of apathy is not
unique to college campuses.
"The entire American public is
apathetic," he said, "but if we can
get students at the forefront of
the movement, it could produce
a lot of momentum."
Kowalski said he thinks de-
signing T-shirts is a good first
step in creating awareness of the
anti-war movement on campus.
"By making a shirt you are
wearing your statement," he
said. "You're saying, 'I know
what's going on.'"

Bright Futures

requirements too low
According to UF's Office of Institutional Planning and
Research, about 70 percent of us have it. Some of us
couldn't attend classes without it.
No, it's not an iPod and it's not a Vera Bradley bag.
It's a Bright Futures scholarship.
First, some facts. There are two main types:
The Florida Academic Scholars scholarship provides 100
percent of tuition at a Florida public institution (or the mon-
etary equivalent at a Florida private school). The require-
ments are a 3.5 high school grade point average, 75 hours of
community service, and either a 1270 SAT (critical reading
and math sections only) or a 28 ACT score.
The Florida Medallion Scholars scholarship covers 75
percent of tuition. It requires a 3.0 GPA, and a 970 on the
SAT or a 20 on the ACT. It does not require any community
service.
"That's all well and good," you may say. But let's check
out some test scores and average GPAs from around the
state.
Only 5.7 percent of freshmen admitted to UF had
below a 3.0 high school GPA. The middle 50 percent range
of SAT scores was 1210 to 1370. The middle range of ACT
scores was 26-31.
At Florida State University, 23 percent of freshmen
had below a 3.0 high school GPA. The middle range of SAT
scores was 1020 to 1230. The ACT range was 21 to 26.
At the University of South Florida, the 2006 middle
range high school GPA was 3.3 to 3.97. The middle range of
SAT scores was 1050 to 1210. The ACT range was 22 to 27.
At the University of Central Florida, the middle
range GPA was 3.3 to 4.0. The SAT range was 1130 to 1270.
The ACT range was 24 to 28.
So this means that about 75 percent of students at
Florida's four largest public universities qualify for some
form of Bright Futures. The state pumps a lot of tuition
money straight into the universities so it doesn't want to
raise tuition. Because that would put even more of a burden
on the state.
But the schools don't always receive the cash they need
and often rely on money from private donors. UF receives
less than 14 percent of its revenue from tuition and fees. In
comparison, almost 40 percent comes from grants, contracts
and gifts.
UF's hopes for the "Academic Enhancement Program"
were shot down this week in the state Senate. So how can
UF increase the percentage of revenue that comes from
tuition?
If the state raises its standards for Bright Futures, it could
raise the cost of tuition across the state without having to
pay more money. Clearly, students at other schools are
well-qualified for the scholarship as well, so this isn't about
getting more money just for UF.
By requiring a higher GPA and higher test scores, the
state could afford to raise the cost of tuition because fewer
students would qualify for the program. Yes, the program
was originally designed to keep the top students in Florida,
but our state's tuition is already so low one of the lowest
rates in the nation and the quality of its universities is so
high, we doubt few students would flee to other states just
because of tuition increases.
Money talks. And the only way for UF and universi-
ties around the state to improve is if they have cash. This
one's obvious: Raise the Bright Futures requirements.

Human connections can prevent evil


e've determined who, but now we must attempt
to understand why. Cho Seung-Hui brought
himself worldwide attention Monday, ending
the lives of 32 Virginia Tech students and faculty members
before taking his own. -
I can't imagine anyone not being shaken by the loss of
so many innocent lives in one day, whether a member of a
victim's family or a complete stranger.
But could the tragedy have been prevented? Not likely.
It remains an unsettling fact that at any time, anyone can
pick up a weapon and take his or her frustration out on
others. Even if cops were stationed every 20 steps, they
still couldn't prepare for surprises. All we can do now is
look to Cho's life and to the lives of other killers and
hope to gain some knowledge.
Large questions loom over every killing. What is in-
volved in the decision one makes before taking the life of
another human being? Why is it that some snap in the face
of troubles, while others can laugh their problems off? I
can't even grasp what goes through the mind of a killer,
and find myself having a hard time judging them.
The scariest part is that we often find the killers led
genuinely normal lives.
Many other details concerning the life of Mr. Cho have
been uncovered. He left a note that rambled about the
moral decline of those around him. He was a loner, spoke
very little to anyone, wrote disturbingly violent works
of fiction, and it seems he was taking medicine for some
psychological problem. Is isolation a trait of a killer, or the
cause of violent behavior?
If you've taken even a introductory psychology or soci-
ology course, you're familiar with Dr. Philip G. Zimbardo's
1971 Stanford Prison Experiment. Zimbardo set-up "pris-


oner" and "prison guard" situ-
ations using normal young men
and students as role players. At
first, the guards resorted only to
psychological punishment. But as
the experiment progressed, they
Todd Portnowitz became more sadistic torturing
letters@alligator.org the prisoners, denying them food,
taking their roles as prison guards
to a violent extreme. Zimbardo
was forced to terminate the experiment by the fifth night.
His conclusion? Our surroundings influence our be-
havior more than we'd like to think. Boredom and isola-
tion greatly increase one's likelihood to lash out violently.
"If you put good apples in a bad situation, you get
bad apples," Zimbardo said in a recent New York Times
interview.
I suppose when you put bad apples into a bad situa-
tion, the results can be terrifying.
Everyone is capable of evil, according to Zimbardo: "If
you're not aware that this can happen, you can be seduced
by evil. We need inoculations against our own potential
for evil: We have to acknowledge it. Then we can change
it."
The only plausible solution for preventing tragedies
like the one at VT in the future is to educate individuals.
Even from a young age, we must teach children to avoid
that state of cold isolation in which one becomes discon-
nected.
When we disconnect ourselves from the world, we lose
compassion for the people in it.

Letters to the Editor
Hokie spirit extends to Gainesville, too
During the appalling event that took place
this week at Virginia Tech, I could not help but
think that the world had gone crazy. I called
my friends to express my feelings, and they
agreed with me. I haven't felt this way since
Sept. 11. This feeling made me wonder what
the hell is the point of anything "dismayed"
would probably be the best word.
But then, in the past day or so, I saw some-
thing else something holding hope for the
future. I have only seen it once, following the
events of Sept. 11. It was us coming together.
It's the support given to those at VT from all
across the nation and around the world.
In the days and months prior to this,
there was a lot of bickering due to all the
political, religious ,and social differences we
have. Everyone argued over whose idea was
right. After a while, listening to this can make
people indifferent.
Then an event like this happens, and all the
nonsense stops. We recognize what is impor-
tant, and that is us. We are a society with many
differences, ideologies and backgrounds. The
only thing we have in common is that in the
face of adversity, we always unite. We will
never let one or a few tear it all down. This is
inspiring to know. It makes me proud.
This is the reason one of my grandfathers
fought in World War II. It is the reason my oth-
er grandparents came here from Austria. It is


the chance to behold something great- some-
thing better despite any differences.
The event at VT was tragic. But "breathtak-
ing" is the word to describe what is happening
now. For this week, I am a Hokie! Go Hokies!

Deaths outside America merit reactions
After the VT massacre, few intelligent
journalists pointed out that tragedies of
this size happen daily in Iraq. According to
IraqSlogger.com, 232 Iraqi university profes-
sors have been killed since 2003, and 56 more
have gone missing. In January of this year,
more than 65 people mostly students -
were killed at the entrance of al-Mustansiriyia
University in Iraq.
The rest of the world must see us as a bunch
of arrogant buffoons. We shudder and bemoan
the killer when the targets are our own people.
However, when students' bodies are ripped
apart by shrapnel in Iraq suicide bombings, it
doesn't even register on the radar here.
It's a tragedy when lives are taken and a
more pronounced tragedy when we fail to
respond equally to the shame and atrocities
our government has thrust upon a nation of
innocent people.
I'm not condemning the media for its


constant coverage of the VT shootings or
denouncing the vigils held here at UF. The
shootings at VT were horrific, devastating and
could happen in Gainesville or on any college
campus.
But every tragedy deserves this kind of
attention and reflection about the cause and
effect, and how intervention could have saved
lives. Innocent victims in Iraq were sons and
daughters in loving families -just like the in-
nocent victims at VT.
About 70 percent of American people .
do not favor the Iraq war. The pressure is
finally on the Bush administration to change
its course, but let us not forget the rage and
anguish we feel today over the most senseless
act of violence on a college campus in U.S.
history.
May we not grow so immune to daily
bombing news reports from a country we oc-
cupy militarily that we forget what it feels like
to be a homicide victim who was only in the
wrong place at the wrong time.

Handicapped student unfairly attacked
SI am a disabled student who parks on
campus, using my state-issued disabled
parking permit. However, my disability is


not visually obvious. I suffer from chronic
pain that intensifies the farther I walk. That
is why it is helpful for me to have access to
parking in handicapped spots.
Tuesday, I returned to my car after class
and discovered someone had left a hateful,
anonymous note on my windshield, which
said I "do not look handicapped" and should
feel guilty and ashamed of myself for parking
where I did. It was accompanied by a booklet
that detailed how Jesus could help me if I
repented my sins.
This is not the first time I've been ha-
rassed on campus for not looking "disabled
enough." Besides dirty looks, a parking at-
tendant in the Reitz Union garage basically
threatened to tow my car if I didn't prove
that I was disabled.
Needing to use a wheelchair or a cane is
not the only reason a person can be issued a
disabled parking permit. People with certain
heart, lung, arthritic, orthopedic and neuro-
logical conditions, to name a few, are also
eligible. Many of these are things you can't
see. They are also private matters.
So to the people who have harassed me,
stop trying to make me and others feel guilty
for not fitting your stereotype of what a dis-
abled person should look like. You're only
exposing your own ignorance.

Animal activists offer free vegan food on Plaza


By MAURI MOHLER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Krishna Lunch wasn't the only
meat-free fare to be had on the Plaza
of the Americas on Wednesday.
Falafel, fresh bread and soy hot
dogs were on the menu at Vegfest,
an annual buffet that offers free
samples of meatless food.
The student-run Animal Activists
of Alachua organized the event.
More than 500 people tried
the animal-friendly foods, which
ranged from Boca burgers to blue-
berry waffles.
"We want to provide a sampling
of all the foods that vegetarians can
eat and show how diverse our diet
can be," said UF graduate student
Elizabeth Murdock, co-president of
Animal Activists of Alachua.
About $300 to $400 worth of food
was given out in three hours.
Most of the food was donated
by local businesses, including the
Reggae Shack Cafe and the 2nd
Street Bakery. A national vendor,
Turtle Mountain, supplied Soy
Delicious vegan ice cream.
Josh Balk, an outreach direc-
tor for the Humane Society of the
United States, spoke about hens as


a target of abuse.
"Egg-laying hens are the most
abused animals in industrial factory
farming," he said. "They are put
in barren, wire cages too small for
them to spread their wings."
He said being a vegetarian
doesn't have to be all or nothing
- even people who are on the diet
for three days of the week are help-
ing animals.
"I don't feel it's something
you can preach. No one
shoved it down my throat
to make me do it."
Kellen Goodell
UFjunior

Kellen Goodell, a UF junior, has
been a vegetarian for about two
years after trying the lifestyle with a
group of friends.
He continued with the diet be-
cause he said he felt healthier. He
also believed it was morally and
ethically the right thing to do.
"I don't feel its something you
can preach," he said. "No one
shoved it down my throat to make
me do it."

crammed with signatures five minutes after
being put out.
The Rev. Andy Bachman of Campus
Ministry Cooperative led a nondenomination-
al prayer and said the UF community shares
the VT community's grief.
"In our unity, this is the moment, this is the
place where our lives join," Bachman said.
Vice President for Student Affairs Patricia
Telles-Irvin read a statement from UF President
Bernie Machen, who was out of town.
Machen's statement emphasized that the
worst thing for a community is to
On lose someone, much less so many
Campus in such a senseless manner.
"Take nothing for granted,"
Machen's statement read. "Know what your
priorities are. Hug your friends. Help and
comfort one another. Tell your parents at every
opportunity that you love them."
Student Body President John Boyles told
the crowd he had received an e-mail that
brought the tragedy even closer to home.
Someone wrote to Boyles about Jarrett
Lane, a VT civil engineering senior who was
waiting to hear back from UF about graduate
school. Lane was one of the victims.
Boyles began lighting the candles.
Slowly, the colonnade lit up, emitting a soft
glow as candles were passed to the edges of
the crowd.
"We pass the flame so we can pass the sup-
port," Boyles said.
Rogelio Fernandez, a criminology senior,
said he came to say a prayer.
"They say when you put a lot of prayer to-
gether, it can do a little something," Fernandez
said.

tice on Easter and a final notice one week later, even after she
and her roommates offered to redirect the rent to the bank.
A broker for Wells Fargo had them sign a contract that
offered $500 for each tenant if they were out by April 21
- three weeks before she was scheduled to move back to the
Netherlands. Factoring in the lost security deposit, the agree-
ment earned her $200. However, she now has to move some-
where else for less than a month while in the final stages of
teaching a class five days a week, studying for a graduate-level
German class and writing her thesis.
Where is the owner in all this? What happened to the money
he was given? Van De Esschert said she doesn't know. The La
Mancha Life Apartments managers are unresponsive and un-
helpful, she said.


"Everything would have been so much easier if the man-
agement had been in contact with us," she said. "We're all
international students. We don't know how everything works
in America and where to go."
Calls to La Mancha's phone number weren't returned.
Van De Esschert said her saving grace was her attorney, who
explained the intricacies of her lease agreement.
Local Marion Radson, Gainesville's city attorney,
News said students facing a problem like Van De
Esschert's should contact UF's Student Legal
Services, which provides free assistance with eviction and rent-
al disputes. However, because the dispute is a private matter
between the landlord and tenant, the city can take no action.
Robert Emerson, a UF business law professor, said students
should review and fully understand their leases.
"Most students don't know probably don't care who
the landlord is, as long as the place is habitable," he said.


UF professors are not restricted by any dress code

professionalism.
"I could do it in a T-shirt," he said. "It
would just be harder."
Mitchell, a chemistry lecturer, would
never be seen around campus in a suit.
He wore a suit two years ago when he
interviewed for his position, and he
made sure to tell his interviewers that
this would be the last time they'd see
him in a tie.
Instead of wearing a suit on his first
day of teaching, he wore a blue Hawaiian
shirt with white flowers. The second day
he didn't, and students asked him where
the shirt was. From then on, it became his
uniform, he said.
Several Hawaiian shirts hang on the
back of his office door, and every day
before he walks to class, he buttons one
over his shirt.
Most days he wears jeans, but in the
summer, he prefers shorts, he said. But
if the shorts were raggedy, he wouldn't
wear them, he said.
He doesn't think faculty should be
required to wear business attire. But they


shouldn't come to work looking sloppy,
either, he said.
Like Mitchell, Emerson, a business
law-professor, rarely wears a suit.
He does only once a semester: when
he struts into class to the tune of Pink
Floyd's "Money" and acts the part of a
haughty businessman for a lecture on
Wall Street. Similarly, when the topic is
.. ..m fraud, he dresses as a
used-car salesman.
Emerson said in a
phone interview that
S wearing a suit to class
doesn't fit his person-
*. ality. Forcing profes-
sors to do so could be
Mitchell counterproductive if
they aren't being true
to themselves.
He admits it would be absurd for
most professors to dress up and "prance
around on stage" as he does.
"If you were inhibited about dressing
up, why the heck would you do it?" he
said.
Attire doesn't matter, he said. It's the
tone that counts.
If a professor doesn't have a profes-


sional tone, he or she will not be re-
spected, he said.
"Just because I wear silly costumes
and do things to keep you awake, don't
assume tests are easy or the material is
silly," he said. .
Just because the classroom environ-
ment isn't formal, he said, doesn't mean
it's disrespectful. He said he just tries to
make business law come alive.
"It would be a lot easier for me to
show up in a suit and talk," he said.
Ashley Aplin, a marketing senior,
said Emerson's costumes don't make
people think differently about him.
"If you watch one lecture, you will
see how intelligent he is, and that's why
people respect him," Aplin said.
Akeelah Ammons, a food science
and human nutrition junior, said the
only time she notices what a professor
is wearing is when she's bored. A suit
doesn't make her respect a teacher any
more, she said.
"As long as they're confident in the
material and deliver it well, I am confi-
dent in the material," Ammons said. "It
doesn't matter if they're wearing a suit or
jeans and a T-shirt."

Deaf woman


learns salsa
E SHE PICKS UP THE MOVES BY WATCHING
SIGNALS AND FEELING THE VIBRATIONS.

By MARIE MONTANER
Alligator Contributing Writer

DaNisha Terrell sways and dips while she prac-
tices salsa, twisting and turning to show off what she's
learned.
Even more impressive than her dance moves is the
fact that she does them all without being able to hear
the music.
Terrell, 29, a resident of Williston, has been deaf
since birth, and doctors have not been able to tell her
why, she said to her friend Grayson Harrop, who inter-
preted the interview.
"Eyes, eyes, eyes, that's what it's all about."
DaNisha Terrell
Williston resident

Despite her hearing impairment, Terrell took hip-
hop classes at her former school. Inspired by the rhyth-
mic dance moves of the 1998 movie "Dance With Me,"
she decided to try salsa next.
"Why not salsa?" Terrell asked. "'Dance With Me' is
my favorite movie. It brought out my passion."
Terrell contacted the Salsa Caliente Dance Studios
in Gainesville.
She started attending the classes in July 2006, and
she picked up the dance moves by watching others,
she said.
Harrop accompanies her to classes a couple of times
a week and interprets for her.
But even with Harrop as an interpreter, Terrell said,
"Eyes, eyes, eyes, that's what it's all about."
She can feel the vibrations of the music, but she
mostly depends on watching and counting.
There are also signals the instructors use to indicate
which dance move everyone should do.
In addition to dancing at her favorite clubs, Rehab
and Plasma, Terrell practices her salsa moves at home
and invites Harrop over.
Terrell said although she is deaf, she rarely misses
a beat.
"I want to show the deaf that it is possible," she
said.

STUDENT LOANS

Kickbacks investigated


By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Staff Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

As New York Attorney General Andrew
Cuomo expands his investigation into agree-
ments between universities and student loan
companies, a UF official said Wednesday
that the university does not have a relation-
ship with any loan companies.
Cuomo is examining the possibility that
some universities took kickbacks from stu-
dent loan companies in exchange for place-
ment on their preferred lenders lists. These
lists are made up of loan companies that
universities recommend to their students
based on which have the best rates.
Rick Wilder, UF's associate director of
financial aid advising, said UF does not
have a preferred lenders list. However, it
does provide students with a list of private
lenders they can go to if their aid package
isn't enough.
Citibank, the fourth name on UF's list and
one of the lenders being investigated, settled
with Cuomo's office earlier this month. It
also agreed to change its business practices
and pay $2 million to a fund that educates
college-bound students about loans.

But Wilder said UF doesn't have any re-
lationships or contracts with the company.
"We process their loans like we process
everyone else's loans," Wilder said.
He added that UF does not profit from
any of the money generated through the
students who take out loans from the com-
panies on the list.
"We process their loans like we
process everyone else's loans."
Rick Wilder
UF associate director of financial aid
advising

Wilder said UF does not specifically rec-
ommend any of the companies.
The reason the four companies which
also includes Wells Fargo, Wachovia and
Key Bank are featured on the list is
because UF is able to process their loans
electronically.
So far, Wilder says UF doesn't have any
plans to take Citibank off its list.
"If students want to use them, we have
no plan to take them off," Wilder said.

ndie fashion gains prominence


latter lightly pokes fun at those who
take the indie title too seriously.
Part of the group's description
reads, "We have some shirts from
the thrift store, but we wear them
with mall jeans (or overly priced,
impulse-purchase jeans from AX).
We don't use our eclectic musical
taste to close ourselves off from the
rest of the unini-

tively large in-
die music scene,

On the ride home from school,
On a hot bus ride home from
school, the bus was steamy and
conversation stirred.
One girl asked her friend, "So,
what exactly does an 'indie' person
look like?"
"Well, they usually wear skinny
Levi's jeans with a carabineer
hooked onto the back belt loop,
Converse sneakers, greasy styled
hair and a cardigan over an old
band- T-shirt," said Desiree Pefia,
a UF English and Spanish senior,
as she dabbed some sweat off her
forehead.
Minutes later, the driver made
a stop to pick up more sweating
students.
Onto the bus strolls a 20-some-
thing fitting the very same descrip-
tion. Despite the 84-degree weather
outside, her shaggy hair was not
tied back into a ponytail and she
was wearing multiple layers of
clothing.


Indie, short for "independent,"
has developed into a culture of its
own one that often goes against
its own roots of anti-conformity
and individualism. As it becomes
a trend, the question arises as to
whether indie is still really, well,
indie.


"Indie is
the new cool,"
said Ryan
Wierenga, the
president of

that we do
everything ourselves," said
Rob Hendrickson, vocalist and gui-
tarist for The Dauntless. "We do the
packaging, recording and composi-
tion, but our sound is more like ga-
rage rock with a dance feel to it."
Hendrickson said indie music
doesn't necessarily go against what
indie means.
"Indie is all. about the music
not being corporate or contrived,"
Hendrickson said. "If the band
built its music from the ground up
and for some reason starts getting
national attention and airplay, like
Modest Mouse, I wouldn't hold it
against them."
The indie influence has also in-
filtrated chain stores and popular
culture.
"I still have no idea what it spe-
cifically means to be indie, but I can
definitely distinguish their style
from other trends," said Jessica
Eng, a UF junior. "I believe they go


for that anti-establishment look."
Stores like Urban Outfitters and
Forever 21 sell items typical of in-
die culture, like vintage concert tees
and skinny jeans.
"Certain fashion trends re-
flect popular music," said Robin
McNicol, a UF senior. "Before this
indie trend, it was the. punk look.
You go to any store, and you can
find clothes that match an outfit
someone from your favorite band
would wear."
When indie music emerged in
the 1980s, it was mostly about the
music. Now, it has catapulted as
something more: a culture, a trend
and an identity.
The exact definition of "indie"
is still hazy and interpreted differ-
ently, depending on the person.
But it's making its way into the
hands of mainstream listeners,
whether by the clothes on "their
back or the music blasting on their
iPods.

Vintage clothing retains modern following


STEPHANIE GRANADA ) AVENUE WRITER
When Nava Ottenberg first opened Persona in 1980, she
had no idea she would still be in the same business 27 years
later.
Luckily for her, vintage fashion has maintained a strong
following.
"Vintage fashion has become very mainstream. Before,
it was very popular in the underground scene," Ottenberg
said.
Throughout the years, there has been a notable blending of
the past and present.
Bell bottoms from the '70s, swing dresses from the 50s and
skinny jeans from the '80s all have a place in modem fashion
- bell bottoms are now flared pants, skinny jeans don't have
zippers down the legs and swing
dresses are a little skimpier.
After fashion disasters of the -. ,
'90s, like feather boas and para-
chute pants, designers are taking I
a more subtle vintage approach.
Instead of pushing awkwardly
patterned bright colors on harsh
fabrics a la Versace fashion
is taking the best elements of
previous decades and compiling i
them to create a modem look.
Today, flowing tops, Greek-
goddess structured dresses and
'70s stacked shoes are the sort of
elements that comprise fashion
magazines and celebrity ward-
robes.
Each is tailored to fit our
environment yet easily distin-
guishable as originating in the
past.

NOT YOUR



Chain stores that deliver
mainstream fashion to the mass-
es are filled with vintage-styled t -"'
clothing. Forever 21 abounds with
bright '70s dresses, American Flashbacks Re
Apparel carries brightly colored.


'80s-style spandex and Macy's American Rag collection is
known for its bohemian '60s styles. -
It is sometimes hard to differentiate between the timeless
dress passed down from someone's great aunt and the depart-
ment store dress made in a Taiwanese factory last November.
The main difference lies in the quality and originality of the
product.
While a shirt bought at Forever 21 might have the buttons
fall off the day it is purchased, one found at a vintage store like
Persona most likely will not.
Unlike the quality craftsmanship of the past, modem cloth-
ing is often mass-produced, diminishing the garments' quality
and life span.
Clothing and accessories found at Persona are all either
handpicked, authentic vintage or specially made by indepen-

dent designers reinventing the vintage style. It all possesses
a high degree of quality and originality not obtained from
department stores.
"You can buy a designer purse for $3,000 or you can come to
Persona and find a great clutch from $14 to $22, and it will have
great vintage quality," Ottenberg said.

FROM PLASTIC TO FASHION
Recycled fashion has also become increasingly sought out
since 1990. Unlike vintage shops, recycled fashion or con-
signment stores sell gently used clothing passed down from.
customers. The same clothes found at the mall are sold for a
reduced price.
In the past, buying from consignment shops or thrift stores
was reserved for the alternative crowd.
Now, everyday shoppers roam the aisles of local recycled
fashion stores like Flashbacks and Sandy's.
"Recycled was a feeling or thought process that for people
took off in 1990 with the 20th
Year celebration of Earth Day,"
said Flashbacks owner Steve
Nichtberger. "Since then, people
became a lot more open and re-
cycled fashion became hip."
The 20th anniversary of Earth
Day accompanied a trend that
made everyone more aware of
the benefits of recycling. From
plastic to fashion, people be-
.- came more conscious of reusing
resources.
Like Ottenberg, Nichtberger
did not suspect his recycled
1 fashion boutique would still be
booming more than 20 years
later.
As the years passed, apprecia-
-" ^ tion of low-priced quality cloth-
ing continued to grow, keeping
Flashbacks as successful as ever.
Stores like Flashbacks carry
anything ranging from authentic
vintage dresses to Hollister jeans.
S The best part is the clothes cost
less than half what they would
at the mall.
... ,"People have become more
conscious of the fact that they
d buys clothes don't have to spend $80 on a pair
of jeans," Nichtberger said.

Local music showcase benefits St. Francis House


WILL AFFORD I AVENUE WRITER


Everyone needs a little help some-
times.
Charlie Honderick, the singer for
local band The Most, recognizes this.
He decided to use his connections in
the Gainesville music scene to help the
homeless.
The Gainesville Music Showcase,
featuring local bands including
Moringbell, Voice of the People, DJ
Trevor Davis, The Dauntless and Oh


Sanders, will benefit St. Francis House.
"They're disenfranchised, they're
dispossessed, they're out of luck,"
Honderick said.
The show's bands encompass funk,
indie rock and pop.
But because of its title, the
show received criticism on
www.gainesvillebands.com from bands
claiming the event isn't representative
of the Gainesville music scene.


The concert was originally conceived
as an all-day event with nine bands and
two stages, Honderick said.
Logistical challenges, however,
reduced the number and turned the
event into a regular show, said Shaun
Spalding, a co-organizer of the event.
"Every single person we were work-
ing with ended up having some kind of
caveat," Spalding said.
Honderick said if enough people
come out this time, organizers may be
able to expand the event into an annual


show and organize it on the scale they
had originally intended.
But regardless of challenges,
Honderick said the most important part
of the show is the people that it will
help.
"It has a tangible benefit to
Gainesville itself," he said. "You can see
it in the face of the people who are walk-
ing around on the streets."
The Gainesville Music Showcase will
be on Saturday at Common Grounds at
9:30 p.m. and costs $5.

Local fan awaits

new Potter novel

AUSTIN FLICKSTEIN I
AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER
Bradley Chema's Harry Potter collec-
tion is a testament to his fandom.
He owns all six novels, two auxiliary
novels, the four Harry Potter movies and
their sound tracks.
He owns a Harry Potter wallet, litho-
graph artwork, figurines, backpack, clock,
picture frame, costume, dolls, pillow,
sheets and comforter. He owns a collec-
tor's edition copy of the first book, Diagon
alley bookends, two Harry Potter movie
posters and a Hogwarts flag.
Cherna, a UF freshman, is the epitome
of a Harry Potter fan. His love started
when he was 10, and although he's now
more shy about it, he is just as big of a
fan.
"It's strange to love a book so much,"
Chera said. "It's not you or your life or
something you created, but it's the most
wonderful heartfelt story of survival
- about the boy who lived. I don't think
there's anything more engaging or inspir-
ing than that."
From the moment Cherna's father intro-
duced him to Harry Potter, he was hooked.
He borrowed a copy of the first novel from
a friend and tore through it in a day. He
immediately went online and ordered the
second book from Amazon. He had to or-
der it from the United Kingdom, because it
hadn't been released in America yet.
Harry Potter soon started to consume
other facets of his life.
When Chema turned 13, his Bar
Mitzvah was Harry Potter-themed. All
attendees were given glasses to wear,
and the room was decorated to look like
Hogwarts, Harry's school.
Candles were hung from bouquets sus-
pended over the tables, and a drawbridge
was placed at the party's entryway. There
were palm and tarot readers. His guest
sign-in book was "Harry Potter and the
Sorcerer's Stone" collectors' edition; and
his friends wrote him messages on their


Bradley Cherna poses with a-
favorite pages of the novel.
For the release of the fifth book, "Harry
Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,"
Cherna was in New York City with his
family. They went to Times Square to wait
for the book to go on sale at a large Toys
"R" Us.
The scene mirrored New Year's Eve.
The streets were packed with fans wait-
ing for the book to go on sale at midnight.
There was even a countdown to the final

moments on a large digital clock in Times
Square.
The Chernas took turns standing in
line for five hours to be one of the first
20 people in line. At midnight, everyone
went inside for a Harry Potter party.
Jim Dale, the voice of the Harry Potter
audiobooks, was there to read the first
chapter of the new book aloud for the
crowd. Cherna also got a Harry Potter
poster signed by Mary GrandPr6, the


books' illustrator. Cherna even made the
news he appeared on CNN and the in-
side cover of the New York Post.
For the release of the new book, "Harry
Potter and the Deathly Hallows," on July
21, Cherna plans to be in New York at
Times Square again at the same Toys "R"
Us, because the store has the biggest fes-
tivities.
"This is the last book," Cherna said.
"I've got to be there."


Friends of the Library book sale kicks off Saturday


VANESSA DIMAGGIO I AVENUE WRITER


Inside the walls of the Friends
of the Library warehouse lies a
wealth of books.
The smell of paper, well-worn
by eager fingers, permeates the
room. Shelves line the walls and
are filled from top to bottom with
an array of novels, videotapes,
puzzles, games and CDs.
The warehouse is immense but
tranquil. The hordes of literature-
hungry customers has yet to pass
through its doors.
The Alachua County Library
District's Friends of the Library
spring book sale will open its doors
Saturday at 9 a.m. The semiannual
sale, which has been running for
more than 50 years, has gained im-
mense popularity.
"The line goes out the door
and around the street," said Joan


Bearden, the president of the
Friends of the Library. "People
will start marking their place on
Wednesday."
Eager customers have been
known to bring tents and sleeping
bags and stay through the night to
be among the first to browse the
more than 300,000 books, records,
games, CDs, DVDs, videos, paint-
ings and magazines at discount
prices.
"About 10 percent of the books
come from the library, and at least
90 percent come from citizen dona-
tions," said Billie Staff, book sale
co-chair.
Most books are priced from 25
cents to $5, with some newer books
ranging between $8 and $10.
The sale is organized and run
by a force of 300 volunteers. About

"You can't throw books away,"
said Johnston. "Somebody some-

The money Friends of the
Library raises from the sale goes to
the library for literacy programs.
It also assists expansion. Last
year, Friends of the Library paid
$150,000 to purchase the property
next to the Hawthorne Library.
Friends of the Library is also in-
volved in a program called Books
for Soldiers, which provides post-
age money to send magazines to
soldiers overseas.
"Sometimes we get letters
back that they've established little
libraries for their units," Bearden
said.
Friends of the Library is located
at 430 N Main St., and the book sale
runs from Saturday to Wednesday.

Program expands global awareness


JACKIE AZIS I JOURNEYS WITH JACKIE


What ignited my love for
traveling is learning about
other cultures.
I wanted a way to con-
tinue learning while still in
Gainesville. So, last semester,
I volunteered for the English
Learning Institute at UF.
I joined the Conversation
Partner program, created
so study abroad students
can practice English con-
versationally instead of in a
classroom.
On Feb. 7, I met my con-
versation partner, Sanghyuck
Nam, an exchange student
from South Korea. We clicked
instantly.
I've never visited South
Korea, and I didn't know
anything about differences
between U.S. and South
Korean culture.
Nam described South
Korea as a polite culture,


compared to the more direct
United States.
"Denying or rejecting is
difficult," he said, referring
to business transactions.
Nam noticed my puzzled
expression at his statement.
"When I have to say no to
a person, I feel sorry for that
person," he said.
Nam describes South
Korea as a collectivist culture,
meaning it is more important
to consider the group's wants
than the individual's.
For example, Nam said if
a man introduces his wife,
he says, "This is our wife,"
instead of, "This is my wife,"
and the connotation is under-
stood.
Eating alone is very un-
common in South Korea.
People might even skip a
meal if they cannot find
someone to eat with.


"If you're eating alone and
a group of people come over,
you feel ashamed," he said.
Nam noticed in the United
States, if a group goes out
and someone becomes bored,
that person might leave. In
South Korea, this doesn't
happen.
"We try to consider the
mood of the group," he said.
People take off their shoes
before entering every home
in South Korea.
If someone wears shoes
in a home, "it's more than
rude!" Nam said.
So what would happen if
someone didn't take off his
or her shoes?
"I cannot imagine,"
he said, laughing at the
thought.
Women in South Korea are
also different from American
women. In South Korea, they
think about, how they will
look before doing every-


thing.
For example, South
Korean women think they
might look silly running and
wouldn't do it, even if they
really wanted to.
Perhaps the most surpris-
ing fact Nam shared is South
Koreans seldom know their
neighbors. There's even a
commercial about it. The
commercial shows a woman
walking home. She thinks
she's being chased, gets
to her door, turns to look
and realizes the person she
thought was following her is
actually her neighbor.
"I don't even know my
neighbor to this day," Nam
said.
This summer, Nam
will return home to South
Korea, bringing a little bit
of America back with him.
What he might not realize is
he also brought a little bit of
South Korea to America.


RUB impresses with recent concerts


The semester has not been an easy
one. In fact, some classes on my calen-
dar are marked with the simple label
"death." Personal relations and friend-
ships have gone awry, and I've had a
gross, lingering cough lately.
But as the Flaming Lips confetti
wafted down upon the shrieking crowd
Sunday night, it was hard to look up at
the yellow and orange clouds and not
feel like everything was just fine.
It's necessary to give credit where
it's due, and the Reitz Union Board defi-
nitely deserves it.
In the past week, RUB put on two huge
events. First, TV on the Radio played at
the Rion Ballroom for a scant $2, and
then The Rapture and the Flaming Lips
played at Flavet Field for free. I
Last semester, I wrote a column
calling attention to UF's deficiency of
free shows compared to Florida State
University. Though FSU students still
got more free shows this semester, our
recent events are a huge step in the right
direction.


In particular, the Flaming Lips and
The Rapture show was a cut above any
I've ever seen either at UF or FSU.
Thousands of people flooded Flavet
Field in a crowd so thick that I could
barely move my upper body.
This was espe-
David Low cially troubling
when the crowd
surfing started dur-
ing The Rapture's
set. Normally, I
?-: wouldn't expect it
*at a Rapture show,
but that's what
makes the prospect of free concerts so
appealing people who wouldn't or-
dinarily listen to something get exposed
to it.
For example, as The Rapture started
its set, a woman nearby turned to her
friends and said, "This is what happens
when an emo band tries to play dance
music, and that's why it sucks."
But halfway through the set, I look
over to see the same woman genuinely


dancing. Then I got kicked in the head by
a crowd surfer.
But the crowd's reaction to The
Rapture paled in comparison to its reac-
tion to the Flaming Lips.
At the beginning of the set, the singer
climbed into a giant plastic bubble and
crawled around on top of the crowd
while confetti and lasers filled-the air.
People went crazy.
The show made me so happy, I forgot
all about the shoeprint on my neck.
My only qualm about the show was
it wasn't closed specifically to UF stu-
dents. It sounds selfish, but after a pack
of Eckerd College students with gross
soul patches pushes their way behind
you, asks everyone around if they can
score some acid and reaches over you
trying to touch the special effects, you'll
understand.
But all that aside, RUB deserves a nice
pat on the back for the hard work it's put
into the past week and the entire semes-
ter. All I can hope for is more shows like
that.


Celebrate


and save on


your 21st


MEGAN HERON I FUN WITHOUT FUNDS

A few weeks ago, I finally reached
the age all minors look forward to: 21.
Unfortunately, I had to celebrate on a
Wednesday, which didn't leave much op-
portunity for hardcore partying.
Bdt that didn't mean I couldn't have
fun.
My boyfriend and I are both on strict
budgets, so we keep a close eye on our
spending. Here are some money-saving
tips to remember when celebrating your
night of glory.
Before your big day, do a little research.
Most places advertise in local papers for
specials. Find out where would be best for
you based on your budget and taste buds.
Happy hour is always a cheap way to
get drink specials. It's usually offered dur-
ing the late afternoon and early evening
hours, before the masses arrive. Some
places also offer cheap food to go along
with the drinks. Or have a snack at home
eating before you go out can-save you
from buying overpriced appetizers.
Keep an ear open for ladies night
(sorry, guys). You can definitely keep a
few bucks in your pocket by hitting up the
places that give you the best deal.
Before you go to the bar, how about
popping a few tops at home?
Not only is it cheaper to buy beer and
liquor from a grocery store, but it also
prevents you from spending more money
once you're out. If you've already downed
a few, your limit is probably up and com-
ig.
If it's your birthday, let people know.
SYou'd be surprised at how generous
people are when they hear it's your big
2-1. The alcohol already running through
their system contributes to these acts of
kindness.
And when you're at the bar, check
what's on draft. Draft beers are a better
bargain because you get more for your
money. Not only is your brew coining
from a freshly tapped keg, but it's also
served in a bigger glass.
Now that you've learned the ropes of
celebrating without suffering major mon-
ey loss, go crack a cold one and have fun.

BioBlitz prepares to count local species, raise funds


JACKIE AZIS I AVENUE WRITER


How many species do you think
you could count in a day?
This weekend, BioBlitz attempts
to find out.
The event, hosted by the
Florida Chapter of the Society for
Conservation Biology, is a contest,
festival and scientific endeavor that
brings professionals and students
together to see how many animal
species they can count in 24 hours.
"BioBlitz encompasses many
things, but simply put, it's a com-
munity-wide effort to rapidly
survey a local preserve for its bio-


diversity," said Chris Burney, a UF
graduate student and a BioBlitz
organizer.
The event provides participants
the opportunity to find something
rare in the local environment.
"We want to find the biggest
number of species possible so
Gainesville can be like, 'Wow. There
are that many species out there?'"
Burney said.
The event takes place on pre-
serves recently acquired through
the Alachua County Forever pro-
gram.


"Our modem lif

"I am most excited about being event will be released.


"We do not want to interact with
the animal any longer than needed
for the survey," Balboni said.
Sophomore Tori Bacheler en-
courages even those with no expe-
rience to take part.
"I have never done anything like
this before," she said.
The festival, which includes
live music, costs $5 and will take
place tomorrow and Saturday at
the Alachua County Fairgrounds.
Proceeds support the Alachfia
Conservation Trust, which protects
resources around Alachua County
through purchases and conserva-
tion.

Gators could face rematch with co-champion Georgia in Sunday's final


TEN NIS, from page 34

Tournament champions.
UF has advanced to the finals
of the SEC Tournament 18 times
out of a possible 19. Thornqvist
always has his teams prepared.
While injuries could have hurt
this squad far worse, Thornqvist
shuffled his lineup and had faith
in his players to get the job done.
The Gators come into this week-
end having won 15 consecutive
SEC Tournament matches.
"We're entering in the SEC
Tournament ... with the same
optimism that we've had the
past few years," he said. "We're
looking forward to the challenge
of playing multiple days, back
to back. That's been one,of our
team's strengths."

TOP TALENT: There's a reason why
UF had the most athletes selected
to the All-SEC teams. Srebrovic
and Suvak were named to the first


team, while Alexander, Borsanyi
and Revzina were named to the
second team. The Gators enter
this weekend ranked No. 3 in the
country, with five players ranked
in the top 125 in singles and two
top-50 doubles pairs.
UF has had three players
receive SEC Player of the Week
honors Alexander, Borsanyi
and Suvak.
Now, here are three reasons
why UF could come home empty-
handed:

SLUMPING ALEXANDER: The fresh-
man has not been herself since
returning to the lineup on April 6
after a lower back injury.
She has lost four straight singles
matches, only one of which was
against a ranked player.
Alexander is not playing as she
was earlier in the season when she
earned SEC Player of the Week
honors in February and came up
with the deciding wins against
Miami and Florida State.


Thorqvist feels it's only a
matter of time and has kept her at
her usual No. 2 singles position.
"She's fighting," Thomqvist
said. "She's giving it everything
she's got."
He compared it to the "ketch-
up bottle syndrome." Thornqvist
said you just keep shaking it up
and hoping for it to come out.
UF has been able to get by
without Alexander's best so far,
but this will likely
g catch up to them
soon if things don't
improve.
Tennis
INEXPERIENCE: The
Gators rely heavily
on three freshmen. Yes, they have
only lost one match so far this
season, but there have been many
times UF has not played its best.
The Gators squeaked by at
Florida State on Feb. 28. A re-
cent road trip to Vanderbilt and
Kentucky produced two 4-3 vic-
tories. UF relied heavily on its up-


perclassmen on Saturday against
South Carolina when it needed a
win to clinch a tie for the SEC reg-
ular season title. Alexander lost
her singles match on Saturday,
and Borsanyi and Revzina al-
lowed their opponents back into
the match after dominating the
first sets.
Thomqvist isn't worried about
his freshmen this weekend, es-
pecially after having played at
Kentucky two weeks ago.
"We've relied on them quite a
bit this year, so they've toughened
up," he said. "They're going to be
ready for it this weekend."

GEORGIA: The Bulldogs are the
sole blemish on UF's record, so
they cannot be counted out for
this weekend's tournament.
The Gators lost 4-3 at No. 4
Georgia (18-1, 10-1 SEC) on March
11, after losing the doubles point
and the top three singles matches.
UF had a doubles match point
but were unable to convert.


The Bulldogs have plenty of
talent of their own, including four
All-SEC players.
Georgia had three athletes on
the first team, tied with Vanderbilt
for tops in the league. Georgia
coach Jeff Wallace received SEC
Coach of the Year honors. Yvette
Hyndman was named SEC
Freshman of the Year. Hyndman
made her impact felt against the
Gators, providing the clinching
singles victory against Borsanyi in
the No. 3 singles match.
Thornqvist did not want to
look ahead to a possible finals
rematch on Sunday, but admitted
his team has changed since the
first meeting.
"We don't ever want to lose,
but we were really beat up at that
point," Thornqvist said. "Since
that point, we're more healthy,
(and) we're much more 'fit than
we were then.
"We're a completely different
team than we were going on the
road at Georgia."

Rivals send combined 13 pitchers to mound in last meeting of season


BASEBALL, from page 35


The Seminoles chipped away at the
Gators' lead during the next seven innings
but were unable to break the game open
despite several opportunities.
In the third, FSU left the bases loaded
after UF pitcher Steven Porter struck out
Gildea.
The Seminoles picked up a run in the


fourth on an RBI single and had a chance
to add more.
With runners on first and second, junior
Jack Rye hit a line drive to deep right-cen-
ter field, but UF center fielder Matt den
Dekker made a spectacular running catch
- colliding with the wall to again
thwart FSU's hopes.
The Seminoles scored another run in
the sixth but left runners on first and sec-
ond after senior Travis Anderson struck
out looking.


Fans were on the edge of their seats
again in the seventh, when FSU put run-
ners on first and second and their top
hitter, Thomas Jr., came to
Sthe plate.
After a long at-bat, UF
B ball pitcher Patrick Keating
Baeall delivered a 3-2 strike to
Thomas to stymie yet an-
other attack. After the Gators failed to
capitalize with the bases loaded and one
out in the top of the ninth, the Seminoles


had one last chance to earn the win, but
Hurst retired the side to end the game.
"We didn't give up for the entire game,"
Leclerc said. "We had some tough calls but
we just fought through it." -
The Gators will be in action this week-
end when they host Kentucky, looking to
keep up the success.
"We lost the last two (Southeastern
Conference) series, and this could be a
momentum shift," Leclerc said. "I hope it
will be."


Locke recovery still not done

after Tommy John surgery


NOTES, from page 35


20 behind current Texas Rangers
slugger Brad Wilkerson for the
lead.

SWEET HOMECOMING: Cole
Figueroa, who is from Tallahassee,
had several friends and family
members in the stands.
The freshman starred at
Lincoln High and grew up root-
ing for the Seminoles.
"It was a little emotional my
first couple of at-bats," he said.
"It definitely felt good coming
back and seeing all these familiar
faces."
Following the game, Figueroa
got to meet with the faces from his
past. Playing against his former
favorite team took some getting
used to.


"It's a little weird, but it's my
decision and I'm glad we came
out with the win," he said.

LOCKE STILL NOT READY: Stephen
Locke's long road to recovery
from Tommy John surgery is not
over yet.
After missing the 2006 season
and taking several weeks off this
year to rest, the sophomore re-
turned April 10 against Central
Florida, but only lasted 2 1/3 in-
nings.
Hoping to regain his spot in
the weekend rotation, the sopho-
more started Wednesday against
FSU but was taken out-after the
first inning.
"He wasn't hurting at all," UF
coach Pat McMahon said. "We're
just trying to nurse him back.
"It's tough to come back from
the surgery he had and it takes
time."

AT THE BAT, from page 35

"Those were game-savers any way you
want to look at it. Some people don't realize
that when you aren't hitting, you can still
help the team out by making big plays like
that."
Leclerc spoke like a member of Meyer's
"leadership committee," his method for
having players police each other when
trouble arises.
Sophomore pitcher Patrick Keating was


suspended from the team for a week follow-
ing a violation of team rules during a road
trip to Athens, Ga., but rejoined the team last
week in Arkansas despite not pitching.
Keating pitched one inning against FSU
in which he did not allow a run despite
walking two batters and being called for a
balk.
When Keating got an FSU hitter to line
out to first baseman Matt LaPorta, he point-
ed towards his teammate in thanks.
LaPorta barely acknowledged the ges-
ture, as if to let the underclassman know


that he's still earning his way back into the
team's good graces.
UF football writers roll their eyes when
Meyer speaks of "being invested."
McMahon has been preaching the same
team concept of togetherness and persis-
tence as his football counterpart.
"I love this club," McMahon said. "They
work very hard and continue to battle."
He is sincere when he shares his emotion
for his players. Nobody takes a loss harder
than him, and his players know it.
With the culture of winning at UF


recently and the expectations that come
with it, whispers started to circulate that
McMahon's job might be in jeopardy if the
team fails to make the postseason for a sec-
ond year in a row.
Nothing could be less deserved for
McMahon.
Now that the baseball team has won big
games against what was supposed to be the
best team in the country, it's time the Gators
start believing they will win and acting ac-
cordingly.
That's what championship teams do.

No. 1 Gators usher in new guard of SEC gymnastics


* GEORGIA AND ALABAMA
HAVE TAKEN A BACK SEAT.

By RACHEL ROBINS
Alligator Writer
rrobins@alligator.org
Consider it the changing of the
guard.
This season, the No. 1 UF gym-
nastics team (21-0-1) has bumped
No. 2 Georgia and No. 3 Alabama
from pulling the strings of the
Southeastern Conference.
The coaches of Alabama, Sarah
and David Patterson, and Georgia,
Suzanne Yoculan, have established
rich gymnastics programs filled
with tradition.
Before the Gators stole the title
this season, either the Bulldogs or
Crimson Tide claimed the SEC
crown in every year since 1989.
Compared to the coaches of those
teams, UF coach Rhonda Faehn is
still a newbie.
Yoculan has been at Georgia for
24 years.
The husband-and-wife
Pattersons have been holding the
reins of the Crimson Tide for 29
years.
On April 26, Faehn and the
Gators will face the two gymnas-
tics giants as well as Oregon State,
Nebraska and Oklahoma in Session
1 of the NCAA Championships in


Salt Lake City, Utah.
So why is this season different
for UF? '
"The talent level on this team
is probably the strongest we have
ever had," Faehn said. "They are


working very hard, but they are
all working together, and they are
all on the same page. They are all
working for one another and help-
ing push each other to achieve the
best results possible for the team."


It took Faehn five years to estab-
lish UF as a legitimate contender
for the NCAA Championships and
to win the SEC Championship for
the first time in 18 years.
Alabama won the national


UF gymnastics coach Rhonda Faehn hugs senior Chantelle Tousek after her performance on uneven
bars against Michigan State on March 16 at the O'Connell Center.


title in 1988, 1991, 1996 and 2002.
Georgia is the two-time defending
national champion.
Both schools have rallied around
their programs and have produced
some of the largest crowds in colle-
giate gymnastics history.
When UF tied Georgia earlier
this season, 10,224 fans came out
to cheer on the Bulldogs. It was the
largest crowd ever in Athens for
gymnastics.
Last season, Alabama had
15,162 fans for their trouncing of
the Gators.
Faehn hopes one day UF will
experience the same support.
"It takes time, and the first thing
you have to do is win," she said.
"For Florida, we've shown that
our attendance has increased since
I've come here. Everyone wants to
be able to support and get behind
a program that is having success,
and especially if it's enjoyable to
watch."
UF's largest crowd of the sea-
son came Jan. 19 against Alabama
when the Gators drew 6,074 at the
O'Connell Center.
Even though Faehn aspires to
have the same crowds as her peers,
she still sees them as competition.
"I respect tremendously what
they've done for the sport of gym-
nastics," she said. "On the other
hand, I'm not going to go hang out
with them."

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Writer


An up-and-down season for
the UF men's tennis team takes
another turn this weekend at
the Southeastern Conference
Tournament.
It begins today in Baton Rouge,
La. The No. 3 seed Gators (12-6, 7-4
SEC) earned a bye and will play in
the quarterfinals Friday morning.
UF will face the winner of the
match between No. 6 Alabama and
No. 11 South Carolina.
Here are the key numbers for
the Gators:

0: The number of losses for fresh-
man sensation Jesse Levine.
Named SEC Freshman of the Year
on Wednesday, Levine has been
everything Coach Andy Jackson
could have ever hoped for and then
some.
"When you bring a 19-year-old
in who's undefeated in the league
at No. 1 (singles), dominates gener-
ally in doubles, (and) is a big posi-
tive influence in the locker room
- I expected that Jesse Levine
(would) be really good," Jackson


said. "I thought he could win (an)
NCAA (singles title) when he
started in January. But he's much
better. That's beyond a pleasant
surprise that he's this good. He's
as good as I've gotten a chance to
see on my team, and this is his first
semester."

2: UF's "magic number" of wins
needed to be a host for the NCAA
first and second rounds, Jackson
believes. He hopes to face No. 6
seed Alabama on Friday, even
though the Crimson Tide defeated
the Gators 5-2 on March 30, because
it would be another quality win.
Should UF win Friday, it would
likely face No. 2 seed Mississippi in
the semifinals. The Rebels defeated
the Gators 5-2 on March 2, but the
match became filled with contro-
versy when junior Greg Ouellette
was defaulted for being overruled
by the chair umpire for the fifth
time in his singles match, clinching
the UF loss.
"We could've beaten them at
Ole Miss," Jackson said. "I know
our guys would like to play those
guys again."


3: All-SEC Selections, as announced
by the league on Wednesday.
Levine, the No. 3 player in the
country, and Quellette, were
named to the first team, while ju-
nior Nestor Briceno was named to
the second team.
Not surprisingly, these are the
top three players in UF's singles
lineup. Ouellette has now been
named to the All-SEC first team all
three years of his collegiate career.
"We've been
spectacular at the
top of our lineup,"
Jackson said. "Greg
Tennis Ouellette, I feel like,
always had a chance
to win the NCAA.
(Levine) gives us a weapon that
only one orstwo other teams in the
country can come close to."

5-2: UF's record in matches with
a 4-3 margin. Due to their lack of
depth (exhibited below), the Gators
don't dominate many opponents.
They have, however, come up with
big 4-3 upsets against then-No. 2
Baylor and then-No. 10 LSU.
"You're not going to always win
the close ones," Jackson said, "and


are 2-5 in matches against teams
ranked in the top 25. In the week
following the upset of Baylor, UF
lost two straight at then-No.' 7
Illinois and at then-No. 12 Florida
State.

10-0: There are two events that have
ensured UF victories all season.

* Taking the doubles point: The
No. 6-ranked duo of Levine and
Ouellette have dominated this year,
posting a 15-2- record. They enter
the SEC Tournament as winners of
eight straight, but their two losses
came in matches against Georgia
and Mississippi, the top two seeds
of the tournament.
UF would face Mississippi in
the semifinals and Georgia in the
finals if all of the higher seeds
advance. The other doubles courts
have been full of inconsistent play.
The usual pair who plays on court
two, Dan Cash and Billy Mulligan,
is 4-8 this season and has lost four
of their last five matches. Cash and
Mulligan did, however, defeat
then-No. 9 pair Matic Omerzel
and Travis Helgeson from Georgia
on March 11. Briceno and freshman


*When UF records a win on courts
4, 5, or 6: All season Jackson has
stressed the importance of depth,
and its potential postseason impact.
Mulligan has seen most of the time
at the No. 4 position, posting a 4-8
record there. Jordan Dolberg, in the
final weeks of his UF career, is the
usual start on court five and is 7-3
there this season.
His experience has come up
big for the Gators, as he provided
the clinching victory with three-
set wins against Tennessee and
Vanderbilt. Jackson has moved
different players in and out of the
No. 6 position, but has settled on
Barton fof now. The freshman is
3-5 for the season, but he has won
three straight. Their unreliable
success was displayed last week
as the bottom three courts were
3-0 against South Carolina, but
finished 0-3 against Auburn.
"Jordan Dolberg is playing
much, much better," Jackson
said. "The guy we put in at No.
6, Geoffrey Barton, has made an
improvement. We have definitely,
over the last three weeks, gotten
better at (Nos.) 4,5, and 6."

UF goes for sixth SEC title


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Writer

The Southeastern Conference Women's
Tennis Tournament begins today in
Lexington, Ky.
The top four seeds earned a bye, so the
No. 2 seed Gators (19-1, 10-1 SEC) will not
see action until Friday.
UF will face the winner of today's 10
a.wp match between No. 7 LSU and No. 10
Mississippi.
Here are three reasons'why the Gators
could take home this weekend's title:

DOMINATING DOUBLES: Coach Roland
Thornqvist lucked into one of the best
lineup changes he has made all season.
Freshman Megan Alexander's lower back
problems caused her to miss four matches,
and Thornqvist was forced to mix up his
doubles lineups.
The newly formed No. 1 pair of Diana
Srebrovic and Csilla Borsanyi hasn't missed
a beat. They are 5-0 and entered the rank-
ings for the first time this week at No. 17.
The duo has defeated top-20 pairs in
their last three matches, dropping only five


games combined.
"Our games and our personalities both
match up pretty well," Srebrovic said.
The No. 47-ranked pair of Whitney Benik
and Nina Suvak have moved down to UF's
No. 2 spot and have regained some confi-
dence with five straight victories.
Upon her return, Alexander was paired
with freshman Anastasia Revzina on court
three, and they have won three straight
there.
"Our games and our personalities
both match up pretty well."
Diana Srebrovic
On doubles partner Csilla Borsanyi

UF has not lost a doubles match since
March 25 against LSU, and the Gators have
lost the doubles point only three times the
entire season.

TRADITION: In six years under Thornqvist,
UF has produced at a very high level. The
Gators are the five-time defending SEC

Gators go up early, survive late to hold off Seminoles


* UF SNAPPED FSU'S 30-
GAME HOME WIN STREAK

By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

TALLAHASSEE Slow and
steady doesn't always win the
race.
The UF baseball team (21-19)
proved that Wednesday with a
5-4 win against No. 3 Florida
State (35-5). The Gators scored
all of their runs in the first three
innings to take the season series
from their rival and end a five-
game losing streak.
"It's a big win," said senior
David Hurst, who earned a two-
inning save.
The victory ended the
Seminoles' 30-game home win
streak in front of a season-high
6,574 fans at Dick Howser
Stadium.
"This is a fun atmosphere,"
Hurst said. "I love pitching in
-these atmospheres. The fans are
lively and into it. It just gets your
blood flowing out there. I just
had so much fun with it."
Hurst was the sixth pitcher


who entered the game for the
Gators, with starter Stephen
Locke throwing just one inning.
Senior Kris Gawriluk got the
win, pitching 1 2/3 innings, al-
lowing one run on three hits.
"Our pitching staff is trying to
find their identity and work some
things out on the mound," UF
coach Pat McMahon said. "We're
frying to get some matchups that
we think can help the ball club."
The Gators jumped out to a
2-0 lead in-the first, when Matt
LaPorta drew a two-out walk and
Brian Leclerc sent a 2-2 pitch over
the right-field fence. It was his
second homer of the year.
FSU answered with a run in
its half of the. inning, as Tony
Thomas Jr. reached on a double
and scored on a wild pitch.
The Seminoles added another
in the second on a olo shot by
Mark Gildea to tie the game at
2-2.
The Gators tacked on three
runs on three hits and an error
in the third to run FSU starter Bo
O'Dell out of the game and take
a 5-2 lead that they would never
relinquish.

McMahon's strategies mirror Meyer


LaPorta makes FSU pay


By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

TALLAHASSEE After the UF
baseball team's 16-7 win against
Florida State on April 3, Seminoles
coach Mike Martin had some advice
for UP slugger Matt LaPorta, who hit
two three-run homers in the game.
"He doesn't need to worry about
bringing his bat to (Dick Howser
Stadium) because he is not getting
anything to hit," Martin said.
But Martin didn't keep his word
and had his pitchers go after LaPorta.
The senior went 2 for 4 with an RBI
and two runs, his 18th game with two
,or more hits this year.
If LaPorta didn't bring his bat,
he must have lent it to fellow senior
Brian Leclerc.

Leclerc who was 1 for 7 com-
bined in the first two games against
the Seminoles turned in a 4-for-4
performance on Wednesday, which
included a two-run blast in the first
inning.
"I heard before
the game (what
Martin said),"
Leclerc said. "I was
just trying to do
my part here and
it felt good to come
-o-r .-._ through.
"(LaPorta has)
been pitched around all year, and it
felt good to help the team and help
him get some pitches to hit."
His RBI double in the third inning
moved him into second place all-time
on UF's career RBI list, where he is

EThe UF softball team's game
Wednesday evening against Central
Florida Was canceled due to rain. The
Gators will gear up next for a week-
end series against Longwood.


TALLAHASSEE -
The UF baseball team seems to be steal-
ing from Urban Meyer's playbook.
One of Meyer's first pillars of
coaching is to win rivalry games.
The Gators ended a five-game los-
ing streak and a 30-game home winning
streak by the Seminoles with a 5-4 victory
Wednesday night in Tallahassee.
UF won the season series 2-1 despite be-
ing shelled 14-6 at home on Feb. 20.
The Gators won the season series against
Florida State and Miami for the first time
since 1996.
Oh, and they also swept Georgia earlier
this month.
Meyer speaks of "big-play offense."
UF baseball coach Pat McMahon speaks
of "big-inning attacks."
The Gators scored in just the first and
third innings Wednesday, but that's all the
offense they would need.
UF is 18-11 when it hits a home run,
most recently by senior Brian Leclerc in the
first inning against FSU.
Leclerc would have four hits in the

If Meyer had more

Casey at the Bat that Reggie Nelson
was mayor of, look
no further than fresh-
man center fielder Matt den Dekker.
With speed and range on par with
Nelson, den Dekker crashed into the right-
center field wall to rob,FSU's Jack Rye of an
extra-base hit with two outs and two run-
ners on base in the fourth inning.
Later, den Dekker would make a sliding
catch on the warning track, showing the
sideline-to-sideline coverage that would
make Nelson proud and impress a senior
like Leclerc.
"Stuff like that goes unnoticed," Leclerc
said. "You don't see that on the box score
or anything, but he earned a lot of respect
from everybody on our team.
