UF engineering senior dies in car crash


Student remembered as intelligent, funny


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

UF Industrial and Systems
Engineering senior Mario Pino, 20,
was known for his abundant en-
ergy and genuine kindness, friends
said.


But this energy was halted after
a car accident late Saturday night
on Inter-tale 75 near the Broward-
Collier County line, killing Pino
and injuring two other passengers,
according to a release from the
Florida Highway Patrol.
The 1999 Honda Civic that he,


his brother Bernard Pino, 23, and
Mary McBeath, 20, were traveling
in hit a median and
Local flipped several times.
News All three pas-
sengers were thrown
from the car, the release said-Pino
was the only person killed.


Originally from South Florida,
Pino stayed active in his fraternity,
Tau Kappa Epsilon.
UF telecommunications sopho-
more Lauren Domene, a member of
Alpha Chi Omega, knew him as the
quiet busboy for her sorority.
"He definitely should be re-
membered for his intelligence," she
said. "He had his priorities straight


while everyone was out partying."
Still, she said, his bashfulness
did not deter his unique sense of
humor.
"When we had our social with
[Tau Kappa Epsilon], he was the
sailor from The Village People,"
she said.
"I can't believe he's gone," she
added. "He was too young."


City facing budget cuts


* GPD COULD LOSE $2.5 MIL-
LION AND PARTY PATROL.

By ANDREW TAN

Legislation in Tallahassee might
make it easier for Gainesville to throw
parties.
To counteract possible cuts in prop-
erty taxes,. Gainesville City Manager
Russ Blackburn requested departments
to submit proposed budgets that cut
costs by 10 percent.
The Gainesville Police Department


has submitted a proposal that cuts
about $2.5 million from its budget. The
department's Party Patrol is one of the


Blackburn


divisions that may be
eliminated.
GPD spokesman
Lt. Keith Kameg said
PartyPatrolresponds
to noise complaints
and deals with 30 to
50 parties on an aver-
age weekend night.
"About half of


them are college-related parties, he said.
Kameg said noise complaints may

With a little creativity" and techie
know-how, the Gator Nation really
could be everywhere.
Google recently announced a compe-
tition to build the best digital, 3-D model
of a "dream campus," and one group at
UF is already signed up, according to the
contest's Web site.
Members of another group of UF stu-
dents said they plan to register but are
still seeking more members.
Participants must design their.
college's campus in Google SketchUp,
plot its coordinates in Google Earth and
submit the completed model by June 1,
according to the site.
All entries will be visible in Google
Earth, a program that uses satellite im-
agery, maps and 3-D buildings to allow
Web surfers to view real-life pictures of
the earth and zoom in close enough to
see leaves on trees.


Participants can work in teams of
up to 10 people or go it alone. Google
suggests seeking the help of a faculty
adviser, but students must create the
model.
"It could give people a chance
to interact with their own
campus."
Mark van Soestbergen
coordinator for the Climate Neutrality
Task Group

A group of five UF engineering
students had already started creating a
digital model of the campus to illustrate
possible sustainability solutions before it
heard about the contest.
The group hasn't registered for the
contest because it hopes to recruit more
team members first.
"It could give people a chance to in-
teract with their own campus," said the

Gas Prices Fuel Empty Pockets
Gasoline prices have soared to unprecedented levels. Even after adjusting for inflation,
the price for a gallon of unleaded now exceeds the 1981 record price that had
stood for 26 years. Behind the increase is strong demand associated with the peak
driving season's approach. There is also some concern that U.S. oil refineries are not
producing enough due to unexpected shutdowns. As of Monday, the average price per
unleaded gallon was $3.179 in Gainesville, up 20.1 cents from last month.

Rescued bear, cub treated at UF veterinary facilities


By NICK MATHEWS
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Florida wildfires may have caused
a lot of damage, but a mother black bear
and her cub escaped afterrescuers saved
them from the blazes.
The UF College of Veterinary Medicine


was the temporary home to the mother
and her female cub until May 18 when
they were transferred to another facil-
ity. Sarah Carey, spokeswoman for UF's
College of Veterinary Medicine, said the
facility will remain anonymous to protect
the bears' privacy.
"We can't release the name of the pri-

location Friday.


vate rehabilitation facility where the bears
now are, out of respect for their wish to re-
main anonymous and not subject the bears
to even more public attention," Carey
wrote in an e-mail.
The bears were rescued May 13 after
members of the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission received re-
ports of an injured bear with a cub, ac-
cording to a news release.
The release stated that the cub climbed
about 65 feet up a tree in the Osceola
National Forest while the mother stood at
the bottom.
The mother was easily sedated with a
tranquilizer dart, but the baby proved to
be a challenge to capture.
After a failed attempt to reach the cub
with a bucket truck, conservation commis-
Ssion officials Brought out a dart gun.
The cub was hit by a tranquilizer dart
and caught in a tarp, the release stated.
After conservation commission vet-
erinarians and biologists captured the
pair, they were taken to UF's Veterinary
Medical Center for treatment, the release
stated.
The fire sloughed off the skin on the
pads of the mother bear's paws. She was
sedated for safety reasons when veteri-
narians provided daily treatment for her,
Carey said.
While under care at the UF College of
Veterinary Medicine, the bears also re-
ceived eye and lung exams to check for
damage caused by smoke inhalation.
Carey said there were no signs of smoke
inhalation and the bears' lungs were fine.
Karen Parker, spokeswoman for the
conservation commission, said the trans-
fer to the new facility went well, and the


mother was standing on all four paws in
the new enclosure.
"They are in a good (facility), with their
own very good vets on staff, so we know
they will receive good care," Carey wrote.
She added that the trip to the bears'
new facilities was amusing.
While on the highway, the mother came
out of her sedated state in her cage in a
horse trailer and stood on her hind legs to
look out at passing cars.
"We had a caravan of people following
us and taking pictures," she wrote.
"We can't release the name of the
private rehabilitation facility where
the bears now are, out of respect
for their wish to remain anony-
mous and not subject the bears to
even more public attention."
Sarah Carey
spokeswoman for UF's College of Veterinary
Medicine

Parker said the bears are doing very
well in their new facility.
The mother's paws have no sign of in-
fection and she should be OK, she added.
"UF Veterinary Medical Center did
a stellar job taking care of the bears,"
Parker said. "We couldn't have asked for
a better bunch of folks to care for the two
critters."
The bears are slated to remain at the
new enclosure for about a month while
the mother bear's paws heal. After that,
they will be released into the forest, Parker
said.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

SG denies agency head cronyism


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

New appointments for Student Government agency
heads were approved with unanimous votes during the
Senate meeting May 15, but it may mean more of the
same.
SG officials say they don't promise positions to any-
one. However, appointees in positions such as Accent,
SG productions and external affairs are members of
the same Greek houses that have held the positions for
many years.
For example, members of Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity,
known as AEPi, have ruled Accent, which is billed as the
largest student-run speaker's bureau in the nation, for
the past 18 years.
Steven Blank, the newly appointed Accent chair, is no
different. He is also a member of AEPi.
But Blank said it wasn't his Greek affiliation that
secured his spot.
Blank said he has been involved in Accent since 2003
and has held various positions before getting appointed
agency head.
"I think my involvement speaks for itself," he said.
Blank said friends both in his fraternity and out of it
introduced him to different ways to get involved at UF.
Student Body President Ryan Moseley said only two
people applied for the Accent position, but the other per-

son didn't have as much experience with the agency.
David Drescher is the new external affairs director,
formerly known as the lobby coordinator position.
Drescher is a part of Tau Epsilon Ihi Fraternity, which
was also the house of last year's head, Jason Lutin.
"Obviously Lutin, being my fraternity brother, has
a lot of knowledge to impart," Drescher said. "But I'd
never say that he pushed me in that direction (of becom-
ing external affairs director)."
"I think my involvement speaks for itself."
Steven Blank
newly appointed Accent chair

Moseley said that with a 10-page application,
Drescher was dearly the most qualified applicant.
"He blew our socks off," Moseley said.
Matt Ochs, the new SG Productions chair, is a mem-
ber of Theta Chi, the same fraternity as last year's chair,
Robert Moreno.
But Moseley said Ochs was the only person who
applied.
However, the Museum Nights agency position,
which has been held by a member of the Delta Delta
Delta Sorority for years, is still open.
Moseley said the deadline to apply for that position
was extended to June 1, ever though five or six people
have already applied.


Preview students


stay on campus

By ANA SIDORAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

They are arriving by the hundreds, quietly walking through
the halls of the Reitz Union.
From mid-May to mid-July, more than 15,000 future Gators
and their family members will visit UF for the 22 Preview
sessions, said Leslie Hahn, assistant director of
On New Student Programs at the Dean of Students
Campus Office.
There are about 250 to 300 incoming freshmen
per session.
Despite the flurry of activity Preview brings to campus, lo-
cal.businesses don't expect much more traffic.
Local retailers such as Gator Plus, which sells Gators mer-
chandise, don't expect a sales increase in sales during Preview.
"It's kind of kept on campus," he said.
Local restaurants also have to compete with the special pre-
sentation Broward Dining Hall puts on to host the dinner the
first night of each session.
"They definitely amp up their food," said Diana Koutoulas,
UF advertising junior.

Cause of fires at nightclub under investigation


Charles Roop / Alligator Staff
A reward poster is displayed near the front entrance of The Venue on West University Avenue on Monday
afternoon. The cause of the fire is believed by authorities to be arson.


* ABOUT $1,700 WORTH OF
LIQUOR WAS TAKEN FROM
THE CLUB.

By SAMUEL L. GREENJR.
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville Fire Rescue re-
sponded to a call about a fire at The
Venue Nightclub and Lounge at ap-
proximately 4 a.m. Thursday.
"I think someone was trying
to destroy it," said Alex Guba,
co-owner of The Venue, 233 W
University Ave.
. He said there was a break-in
Wednesday night and $1,700 worth
of liquor was stolen. The next day,
Guba found the glass front door
broken and two cans of gasoline
inside on the floor.
The cause of the fire is still under
investigation and has been.classi-
fled as "suspicious," according to
Gainesville Deputy Fire Chief Gene
Prince.
"There were multiple fires set
and an accelerant was used, which
usually points to arson," Prince
said.
The police are conducting an in-
vestigation to find out exactly what
happened. No arrests have been


made and Guba said there were no
witnesses.
Prince said the fire alarm went
off and the central dispatch noti-
fied the fire department. When the
rescuers arrived, there were several
isolated fires that had been started
on the first and second floors of
the cub. Rescuers extinguished the
fires immediately.
Guba said there were damages
to the electrical wires, carpet, bar
and parts of the stage.
He arrived at his nightclub
Thursday morning, but he was not
allowed to see the building until
approximately 1 p.m. because po-
lice were looking for fingerprints
and investigating.
The club was saved because
of its fire prevention precautions.
Prince said the building's fire
sprinklers and fire-retardant carpet
helped hold back the flames and
kept them from spreading.
The dub owners spent all of
Thursday night cleaning ash off the
floors of the club to prepare for the
upcoming weekend. Hip-hop artist
Lil' Boosie was scheduled to per-
form a sold-out show Friday night.
Despite the smells of burnt car-
pet and burn marks on the floor, Li'
Boosie still performed for an audi-
ence that packed the building.


Gainesville Sun newspaper racks looted for coins


Thieves take as much as $30 per stand


By MARK SCOHIER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Newspaper carriers for The Gainesville Sun are discovering
that no news is bad news.
In the last four to six weeks, there has been a significant in-
crease in the number of Gainesville Sun newspaper racks that
have been stolen or broken into.
,Single copy zone manager Guillermo Garzon, who man-
ages carriers for The Gainesville Sun, said 32 racks have either
been stolen or broken into for the uncollected money inside.
"It's got to be someone that knows the paper business,"
Garzon said in an interview Sunday. The crimes have all oc-
curred between 9 p.m. and 1 a.m. when the carriers are not out


working, he explained. Garzon said he thinks the stolen racks
are placed into a van or truck, where culprits can take their time
breaking into them without fear of being spotted.
He added that most of the machines are returned and made
to look as if they had not been tampered with.
Garzon said he's been doing his job for 11 years, and this is
the worst the problem has been. "It's unfortunate for the news-
paper carriers because they are the ones that have to pay for the
costs," he said.
Clayton Barco, a carrier for The Gainesville Sun, has had
nine of his racks stolen or broken into in the last six weeks. He
added that on average, he loses about $30 per machine.
Even though he has to make up the costs, Barco said he
hasn't filled out a police report because he feels nothing will be
done about the problem.


Capt. Lynne Benck of the Gainesville Police Department
said having more information about the theft pattern would
help GPD.
"I have to do something before I'm completely
bankrupt and homeless."
Clayton Barco
carrier for The Gainesville Sun

"They don't want to take the time to make a report because
they don't think we're going to catch (the thieves)," Benck
said.
According to GPD records, only 12 cases of theft or molesta-
tion of newspaper racks have been reported so far this year.
"I have to do something before I'm completely bankrupt
and homeless," he joked.


GREEK LIFE

Process slows Greek decals


By TRACY FLACK
Alligator Contributing Writer

Aside from the long lines at the begin-
ning of last week, buying a parking decal
shouldn't have been so difficult. But for
Greek students, living in their houses this
summer became a problem.
Transportation and Parking Services
hadn't received necessary lists of in-house
residents from the Office of Sorority and
Fraternity Affairs, said Scott Fox, director
of Transportation and Parking Services.
Because of this, Greek students were not
allowed to purchase on-campus decals.
Each semester, Greek house manag-
ers must submit a list of students living
in the house to the Office of Sorority and
Fraternity Affairs. The office approves
the list and sends it to Transportation and
Parking Services, said Christopher Bullins,
the director of the Office of Sorority and
Fraternity Affairs.


Bullins said the first step in the process
is finding out which houses will be open
for the summer.
Because fraternities don't finalize their
housing list until the first day they open,
Bullins' office doesn't receive the lists un-

til later in the summer.-
Approval from the Office
of Sorority and Fraternity
Affairs is necessary be-
fore sending the lists
to Transportation and'
Parking Services, Bullins
said.
But the sooner leases


are signed, the sooner lists can be submit-
ted, he added. Fox said it is equally frus-
trating for his office when students aren't
allowed to purchase the correct decal, but
without proper documentation, it's not
under their control.
"We want to make the decal transaction
as painless as possible," Fox said.


Freebies often fizzle out


By NICK MATHEWS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Getting a good deal on a purchase
.can really brighten your day, unless the
promise of a free sandwich after you
buy ten is an empty one.
Consumers should be wary of some
companies' promises of future rewards
for money spent now, according to a
study done by a UF marketing profes-
sor.
"(Giveaway programs) become
unprofitable as more and more obli-
gations mount," Steven Shugan, the
professor who headed the study, wrote
in an e-mail. "At some point, current
management starts to consider how to
get out of the promises that past man-
agement has made."
Shugan wrote that larger companies


are more likely to have problems with
failing to return on promises of future
rewards.
"I think that smaller firms are owner
controlled, and owners are more cogni-
zant and concerned about their more
local, long-term reputations," Shugan
wrote.
But it's not always
UF that the company
.-,; ?:..: has bad intentions,
Shugan said.
Shugan cited an example of an
airline's marketing department that
promised their best customers special
baggage handling. But after it made the
promise, it learned that the operations
department could not follow through
with the request.
"Everyone makes promises with the
best of intents but the future seems far
off until it is here," he wrote.

SG empire

Agencies keep it in the

family
C coincidence or not? Several Student Government agen-
cies appoint "legacy" leaders members from the
same fraternity or sorority who hold the same position,
year in and year out.
Take, for instance, Accent: Members of Alpha Epsilon
Pi Fraternity have ruled over the program for 18 years. A
member of Delta Delta Delta Sorority traditionally sits on the
Museum Nights throne, but that bloodline is threatened the
seat is still open, and Student Body President Ryan Moseley
said he's looking outside of "typical realms" to fill it.
Please excuse the dynastic language, but it looks like that
is exactly what's going on here. SG agencies seem to operate
more as a monarchy and less as a democracy. Many students
who join the SG circle tend to get involved because of their
Greek brothers and sisters.
Only one person applied for the SG Productions chair
- and he's in the same fraternity as last year's chair. Call us
cynical, but the fact that only members from that fraternity
seem to hold the agency's leadership position sounds a tad
suspicious.
It's as if the new students come in and are appointed
princes and princesses until their kings and queens move on,
and then they rise in the royal ranks. While waiting to ascend,
their monarchs give them tips and tricks on how to maintain
the traditions and no outsider can crack the royal code.
All this cronyism reminds us of the problem of national pol-
itics. Remember the no-bid contracts Halliburton got in Iraq,
thanks to Vice President Dick Cheney's connections, and the
problems they caused? Or the recent scandal of U.S. Attorney
General Alberto Gonzales' firing of eight federal prosecutors?
He and President George W. Bush go all the way back to 1994,
when Gonzales was Bush's general counsel and that's how
he got where he is today.
We don't want to imply that legacy is the only factor that
goes into deciding who gets what position, but we don't think
it would be too far-fetched to wonder what would happen if
two applications sat side by side with the applicant's Greek af-
filiation as the only difference. If there ever comes a time when
legacy takes precedent over efficiency and accountability, that
would be cause to break up the family.
What SG needs is some new blood people who aren't the
typical Greeks or Florida Blue Key members. Unfortunately,
it's too late for that because almost every agency's seat has
been filled.
But the bigger problem here is the inability of anyone else
to cross the moat SG has dug around itself. The intimidation
and pressure from the inside makes it damn near impossible
for someone without the right connections to get involved. Is it
a coincidence or not that the Greek-backed party consistently
wins student elections?
Maybe we've got it all wrong, and maybe those people
elected really are the best SG could find for the jobs. But hoFw
hard are SG officials really looking?
They should take a more proactive approach in filling va-
cant positions, advertising them around campus and in news-
papers, not just on its Web site that only the people already
involved look at. Maybe they should recruit some business
students who can help the agencies be more financially ef-
ficient. Or some art majors who can lend new flavor to tired
ones. With 50,000 students to choose from, we're sure UF stu-
dents have plenty to offer.

Budget cuts further
t's that time of year in Gainesville for the powers that
be. That's right, my fellow Gainesvillians city officials
are in the process of revising the budget in response to
the Florida Legislature's proposed property tax that could
reduce the city's revenue by up to $7 million.
With the wave of uncertainty among commission mem-
bers, one plan remains stable: The city of Gainesville needs
to slim down if it's going to fit into its new budget. Too many
extraneous programs aren't good for its figure.
So what have the almighty rulers decided? Ah, that's the
seven-million-dollar question. Nothing is set in stone, but the
City Commission has made a cut list to prepare for the pos-
sible budget shortfalls.
In the list of superlatives I like to call "Most Likely to Go,"
the top programs include the Gainesville Police Department's
Party Patrol and Gainesville Fire Rescue's emergency medi-
cal services. The GPD's Party Patrol program attempts to
tame Gainesville's wild nightlife, while the fire rescue's
emergency medical services provide more ambulances to a
city with an already short supply.
Though city officials believe they may be able to offset
this projected loss by raising fees, fines and charges, I believe
these cuts may ultimately benefit the population especial-
ly students. In fact, I'm tempted to write the city officials a
thank-you letter for even suggesting such a productive idea.
I mean, really The Party Patrol? More like the "Party-
Pooper Patrol." Just when partygoers reach the level of light-
ing chairs on fire and drunkenly storming the streets, the
patrol swoops in and kills the fun.
As for the emergency medical services: Who needs extra
ambulances? We don't need any help during emergencies.
Be resourceful, call a cab. If you don't have the funds for that,
just swing your vomiting, unresponsive, alcohol-poisoned


f-


hurt city's programs
friend over your shoulder,
firefighter-style, and walk.
That's the character-building
solution.
iS S In addition to cutting
these programs, the proposal
Stephanie Rosenberg calls for laying off 47 GPD
letters@alligator.org employees, including 24
sworn officers. As if recently
losing one of its esteemed
officers to a reckless drunken driver wasn't enough to
negatively affect the department's morale, firing employees
would do wonders.
Other programs that could be thrown to the wolves
include after-school sports, the city's homeless one-stop
service center and the Gainesville/Alachua County Office
on Homelessness. Sound disappointing? Don't worry, here's
a viable alternative. Just keep the kiddies occupied with
sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, because it's much cheaper for
Gainesville's budget. As for the homeless problem, I think if
everyone chipped in their spare change, we'd be good.
GPD and GFR consume about 50 percent of the city's
funding, and thus may be deserving of such fates. However,
the safety and welfare of the community should be the city
officials's top priority. It should not be deemed the top ex-
pendable resource.
City Manager Russ Blackburn said in a Gainesville Sun
article that he does not "think any of (the proposed cuts) are
to send a message to Tallahassee." So there's no political mo-
tive? Sure. That sounds almost as laughable as the Jeb Bush
College of Education.

Possible tuition increase unfair
It is quite surprising that for-
mer UF Student Body President
John Boyles has come out sup-
porting UF President Bernie
Machen's tuition increase plan
when it is not in the interest of
UF students.
The main argument seems to
be that, compared to other uni-
versities, Florida's tuition is too
low.


The UF administration cites
statistics to this effect, but upon
closer,look, the comparisons are
quite disingenuous.
Universities in the Northeast
- where family incomes are
much higher on average than
Florida's make up the major-
ity of schools with higher tuition
rates. If you compare schools
within the Southeast, Florida's
tuition does not seem so far out


of place. Florida's tuition for
out-of-state students is near the
national median, which compen-
sates somewhat for the lower in-
state tuition charges.
In the last 15 years, tuition
prices have gone up about three
times compared to the value
of the average family's income
- putting an increased strain on
middle-class families.
The Bush administration


defunded federal student loan
programs and failed to extend
the college tuition tax.
Grant aid is not keeping
up, and students are increas-
ingly dependent on student loans
- putting them further into debt
than ever before. The underlying
reason is a quiet cost shift from
state and federal support, plac-
ing the burden on the individual
students and their families.


Machen's latest attempt to
radically raise tuition is an unfair
burden to the citizens of Florida
and a backhanded way around
the maximum tuition increases
imposed by state law.
The State University System
was created to serve the needs of
all the citizens of Florida, not just
those who can afford it.

Poetry forum breaks down barriers

M JAZZ, PRETTY GIRLS AND VIRGINITY .
WERE INSPIRATION FOR SOME POETS.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

SPoetry forums draw in mixed crowds, as was
,.- -- evident Saturday. A brown fedora shaded the eyes
of a man reading from a worn notebook. Bobbles
and trinkets rested against a woman's neck as she
played acoustic guitar. Apoet ranted about Beef O'
Brady's blue cheese dressing.
"In a society built on silence and subjugation,
any form of poetry is rebellion," said "Johnny
Rocket" Ibanez, a 26-year-old participant of "The
Word Is Spoken" community forum on Saturday.
The monthly forum, held at the Alachua
County Downtown Library, 401 E University Ave.,
was created to increase interest in poetry.
"This is a poetry exchange," said event creator
David Maas. "We're giving everyone exposure to
a really unique experience."
Pain, pretty girls, the universe, significant oth-
S-, ers, jazz and virginity were just some of the differ-
ent answers given when asked what inspired the
performing poets.
"A lot of people realize something they've for-
: gotten," said poet Joseph A. Pasquale, 34.
"They realize something within their own di-
A vinity. It inspires them to make a positive change
for themselves and society."
The event wasn't limited to college students.
SGene Anderson, 43, plays percussion in a rhythm-
.I ., and-blues band. He roped in the audience with
poems about his hitchhiking experience from
Ocala to Arizona, his girlfriend's tomato and dan-
delion garden, and surfing as a sexual metaphor.
INN1 A "Whenever you speak, aim for three things:
Fill inspire people to think, speak and act," Anderson,
said. "A truly great poet can get a person to do all
,o ,.. three."

City to plead for Tallahassee's reconsideration

not be responded to as quickly
as they have been in the past.
Those are lower priority calls, he
added.
However, at a special City
Commission meeting Monday,
Blackburn said the budget cuts
to GPD and several other depart-
ments are options, not recom-
mendations.
"We're a long way from
making choices yet," said
Commissioner Jack Donovan.
Kameg said the possible cuts
in GPD could have adverse ef-
fects on Gainesville.
"Gainesville will definitely
be less safe," he said in a phone
interview.


However, UF criminology
professor Ronald L. Akers said
the effects of police budget cuts
are uncertain.
He added there is no direct
correlation between an increase
in crime and a reduction in a
police budget:
The hardest part of the bud-
get-reduction process, Kameg
said, is the possibility of losing 47
people in the nearly 400-person
department.
"Obviously anything involv-
ing people is the worst," he said.
Kameg said people would
be let go in the order they were
hired, beginning with the most
recent hires.
Kameg said deciding what
would be cut was difficult, but
Police Chief Norman Botsford


decided that two divisions would
not be touched: road patrols and
the detective department.
"That's our core job," Kameg
said.
In addition to discussing the
possibility
Gainesville City of budget
Commission cuts in
several
city departments, the City
Commission voted unanimously
to send a letter to Florida's Senate
and House of Representatives
urging politicians to rethink the
budget cuts.
Commissioners also encour-
aged Gainesville citizens to voice
their opinions to Tallahassee poli-
ticians on the property tax reform
that may reduce the budget.
"Now is the time to get


engaged," said Commissioner
Jeanna Mastrodicasa.
Gov. Charlie Crist, the Florida
House and the Florida Senate
have their own respective ver-
sions of the property tax reform
bill. Each version deals with re-
ducing property taxes by rolling
back the rate to a previous year.
The House and Senate will
have a special session from June
"12 through June 22 to discuss the
tax reform.
Blackburn said in a presenta-
tion to the Commission that the
Governor's plan would affect
Gainesville the most, with $10.2
million being lost.
SThe Senate plan would affect
the city's budget the least with a
reduction of approximately $4.6
million.

Professor


mourned


at funeral

By NICK MATHEWS
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF associate Spanish profes-
sor Alvaro Felix Bolafios died of
a heart attack May 14 at the age
of 51.
According to fellow associ-
ate professor Reynaldo Jim6nez,
the attack was caused by a heart
defect.
Bolafios suffered the heart
attack while jogging to Talbot
Elementary school to pick up his
son Alejandro, Jim6nez said.
The funeral was held at Forest
Meadows Funeral Home, where
music from his favorite band, the
Rolling Stones, was played during
a picture slide show.
Dozens of photographs
showed a man who lived life with
a large smile and a man who held
a family in his arms.
But Bolafios' smile will no
longer be seen in
,... -j person. And he will
News not hold his family
in his arms again.
Bolafios, known
to his friends and family as Felix,
was a scholar in colonial Spanish-
American literature and culture.
Bolafios was born in Cartago,
Colombia, in 1955 and graduated
from the Universidad del Valle.
In 1982, Bolafios moved to the
United States to pursue his mas-
ter's and doctorate degrees, which
he received from the University of
Kentucky.
Bolafios returned to Colombia
in 1998 as a Fulbright Scholar to
teach. With him he brought Lisa,
the woman who would become
his wife. Later that year, Bolafios
came to teach at UF
He became cose with his col-
leagues, especially Jimenez.
"He was a person who was
a devoted father and a very
well-known scholar in his area,"
Jim6nez said. "He was able to
balance his personal life with his
professional life in a very remark-
able manner."
But his two lives intertwined,
and many students considered
Bolafios to be more than just a
professor.
"He didn't treat us as his
students. He treated us as his
friends," said Edward Maldonado,
oie of Bolafios' former students.
Some international students
felt an even greater connection
with him.
"We considered him a friend
and a father," said Carmen
Guerrero, a UF graduate student.
"He showed that he loved you
and wanted you to be better," she
said.
Those closest to him say it was
his devotion as a husband and fa-
ther of three that made him stand
out.

Women's tennis suffers season-ending loss to UCLA


* GEORGIA ENDED THE UF MEN'S
SEASON IN BLOWOUT FASHION.

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Writer

On Friday, freshman Csilla Borsanyi was
the hero, winning a three-set match against
Iva Mihaylova to clinch against Baylor in the
Round of 16.
How quickly things change in college ten-
nis, especially at the NCAA Tournament.
The No. 4 Gators were back on the courts
Sunday, and this time Borsanyi found herself
on the wrong end of a deciding match.
With the score tied at three, No. 58
Borsanyi lost 6-4, 7-6 (4) to UCLA senior Alex
McGoodwin, leaving UF with a 4-3 loss in the
quarterfinals and ending its tournament run.
UF coach Roland Thorqvist could do little
more than credit McGoodwin.
"Csilla put forth a Herculean effort, but
McGoodwin found a way to hit big serves
and big volleys in the dutch," Thornqvist said.
"(McGoodwin) played phenomenal tennis to
win the match, and that was what it was going
to take to beat Csilla."
The Gators put themselves in a 3-0 hole


against the Bruins, but they almost made an
improbable comeback.
No. 39 Megan Alexander defeated No.
40 Tracy Lin 6-2, 6-4 and UF's Nina Suvak
defeated Ashley Joelson 6-3, 7-5 in the final
match of her career.
"'ve been waiting for my tennis career to
end for such a long time," Suvak said, "but
now that it's here, I don't want it to end."
On court one, No. 23 Srebrovic defeated
No. 15 Zalameda 6-3, 0-6, 7-5 to even the
score.
Thomqvist felt his team played well but
just ran into a Bruins team that outplayed
them Sunday.
"I'm proud of our team because we did
everything we could to get to (Sunday),"
Thornqvist said. "Losing like we did today
hurts, but we played good tennis. They just
played unreal tennis."

MEN BOUNCED BY BULLDOGS: Plagued with
inconsistency all season, the UF men's ten-
nis team came into its NCAA Round of 16
match against undefeated No. 1 Georgia with
confidence after upsetting Florida State in the
second round.
Would it be enough?


The answer came quickly and painfully
Thursday night as the No. 19 Gators (15-8)
were dominated by the Bulldogs 4-0.
"Congratulations to the Bulldogs," UF
coach Andy Jackson said. "They deserved to
win. They won because they played better,
(and) they won because they've got a lot of
talent. Georgia was too good for us."

"We're very eager to have the
summer and come back in the
future. We felt like we did our job
to get here."
Andy Jackson
UF men's tennis coach

The Bulldogs jumped out to a quick win in
doubles play, clinching the doubles point with
quick victories on courts two and three. When
the No. 1 match was suspended, No. 3-ranked
pair Jesse Levine and Greg Ouellette were tied
5-5 with No. 1 duo John Isner and Luis Flores.
Singles play was not much better for UF,
as three-straight two-set losses ended things
quickly for the Gators.
Jackson credited the Bulldogs for playing
well in front of a big home crowd.


"Georgia's kids were able to handle the
pressure that the crowd put on them," Jackson
said. "I've seen a lot of home teams thatget a
big crowd, and they're the ones that are chok-
ing."
Jackson looks forward to next year, with
only Jordan Dolberg graduating and a highly
ranked recruiting class coming in.
"We're very eager to have the summer and
come back in the future," Jackson said. "We
felt like we did our job to get here."

INDIVIDUAL ACTION: With both UF teams elimi-
nated, the Gators' championship hopes now
rest with singles and doubles play. Srebrovic
and Alexander will represent the women in
singles play. No doubles teams were selected.
On the men's side, freshman Jesse Levine,
seeded third, finished the season 21-0 and will
be the first player since Peter Luczak of Fresno
State in 2001 to enter the singles tournament
undefeated.
No. 21 Greg Ouellette will compete in the
singles draw as well. Levine and Ouellette
will also compete in the doubles tournament,
where they are seeded third.
Singles play begins Wednesday at 9 a.m.
and doubles action starts Thursday at 10 a.m.

UF enters conference tourney with greater aspirations


Figueroa: We need to win three games


By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer
aweintraub@alligator.org

For second baseman Cole
Figueroa, the math is simple.
"We just need to win three games
in Hoover," Figueroa said.
As the sixth-seeded Gators en-
ter the Southeastern Conference
Tournament on Wednesday, the
team hopes its postseason run won't
end in Alabama.
After being picked to finish last
in the SEC following a 2006 season
in which they did just that, the
Gators still hold out hope to not only
earn a strong finish in their confer-
ence postseason but also make the


NCAA Tournament field.
"I am proud that our guys have
played themselves into this posi-
tion," UF coach Pat McMahon said.
"They have made tremendous im-
provement."
In spite of the improvement, the
Gators struggled for much of the
season. The team dropped series at
the beginning of the year to lowly
Virginia Military Institute and Kent
State.
The squad also lost home mid-
week games to Jacksonville, North
Florida and Central Florida.
The team had a chance last week-
end to boost its case for an NCAA
bid, but instead dropped two of
three to Tennessee. After the sub-par


showing against the Volunteers, UF
(28-28, 15-15 SEC) will likely need at
least three wins in Hoover to have a
chance at an NCAA bid. It is very


McMahon


rare for a .500 or
below team to
make the NCAA
Tournament, and
UF would need
to win three
games to escape
with a winning
record in the two-
loss elimination


format.
Given the top-level teams pres-
ent in Hoover, it will be a tough
row to hoe for the Gators. Luckily,
No. 1 Vanderbilt who swept UF


earlier in the season is paired up
on the other side of the bracket, but
the Gators will not be facing any
slouches either.
"It really sets itself up as one of
the great places to get into an NCAA
Regional," McMahon said.
UF will face No. 9 South Carolina
in the first round on Wednesday at
1 p.m. The Gamecocks took two
of three games from the Gators-in
Gainesville earlier this year.
The team was stymied in the
opening game by Gamecock ace
Harris Honeycutt, who threw six
scoreless innings and allowed seven
hits.
The lone UF win against South
Carolina came when catcher Cody
Neer hit a walk-off three-run home
run to secure a 9-8 Gator victory on
April 7.


In the next game, the Gamecocks
came from behind in the ninth in-
ning and eventually took the game
in 11 innings.
UF will look for revenge against
South Carolina second baseman
Travis Jones, who had the series of a
lifetime against the Gators in April.
Jones went 9 for 12 with five
home runs and 11 RBI in the three-
game set.
The winner of Wednescfay's
game will go on to play the winner
of the Alabama-Arkansas game. The
losers of the two contests will meet
in an elimination game.
"We got ourselves into the SEC
Tournament, and now all we have
to do is play well there," McMahon
said.
Figueroa agreed.
"Everything's on the line now."


Barnes' grand slam, 10 RBI lead Gators to sole series victory


BASEBALL, from page 20

shot to make it this year (to the NCAAs)."
Tennessee clinched a spot in Hoover
with their Sunday victory.
Thursday's game did not go well for the
Gators, either, after Tennessee jumped out
to a 2-0 fourth inning lead and held on for
the 6-5 victory.
Freshman starter Kyle Mullaney tossed


6 1/3 innings, allowing five runs three "To our offense's credit, we battled
earned on nine hits in a losing effort.
It was the third Friday in a row that our hearts out."
Mullaney got the nod to start the game. Pat McMahon
Outfielder Jonathan Pigott went 2 for 5 UF coach
with one run and two RBI to lead the way
on offense for UF.
But the Gators were able to salvage a and capitalized on erratic pitching by_
victory Friday, clinching a spot in the SEC Tennessee.

The team racked up 20 runs on 14 hits career night going 3 for 5 with 10 RBI and


four runs scored. Two of his three hits
were home runs, including a grand slam
in the second inning.
For McMahon, the series was further

UF earns SEC Tourney bid despite losses

The Gators entered this
weekend with a chance to
clinch not only a spot in the


Southeastern Conference
Tournament in Hoover, Ala.,
but to further boost its resume
for an NCAA Tournament bid.
While UF (28-28, 15-15 SEC)
clinched a spot in its confer-
ence tournament, earning a No.


6 seed, it dropped two of three
games to visiting Tennessee,
further hurting its case for an
NCAA bid.
"Our goal was to definitely
win two out of three against
them this weekend and set

us up for a regional," second
baseman Cole Figueroa said.
"Obviously we didn't do that.
But I think we will be fine."
UF's offense had to make
do without first baseman Matt
LaPorta's bat- for most of the
series. Tennessee intentionally
walked him nine times over the
course of the three-game set.
The strategy won Tennessee
few fans at McKethan Stadium,
but UF coach Pat McMahon
had no problem with it.
"I can't control whether
opposing coaches are going
to choose to pitch to him," he
said. "But I do think it is a great
show of respect for his offen-
sive capabilities
and the work
he has put in to
get to that level.
Baseball I also think it is
a great oppor-
tunity for guys
who are hitting behind him in
the lineup."
The Volunteers drubbed
the Gators in Saturday's rub-
ber match 11 7, as UF starting
pitcher Billy Bullock lasted
only 2/3 of an inning, surren-
dering five runs on five hits.
The bullpen coughed up six
runs on 13 hits in 8 1/3 innings
worth of work.
The lone bright spot for the
Gators was outfielder Matt
den Dekker who went 3 for 4
with a home run and two runs
scored.

When the lights are on, the great ones
shine the brightest, and sophomore Billy
Horschel has made a habit out of standing
out and winning when it counts.
When the No. 7 UF men's golf team need-
ed its star to light up the. field as it headed to
the NCAA East Regional this past weekend,
Horschel delivered.
Horschel the nation's second-ranked
golfer and Southeastern Conference Player of
the Year led the Gators to a second-place
fir.h in Alpharetta, Ga., firing a three-round


total of 210 (6 under par). That score also
earned him a share of the individual medal,
the third of his collegiate career.
"Billy [Horschel] will be the first to
tell you that he could have played
better this spring."
Buddy Alexander
UF coach

Behind the strong play of their leader,
the Gators earned a bid to this year's NCAA
Championships, marking the seventh con-
secutive year the team will compete for a


national title.
"Billy will be the first to tell you that he
could have played better this spring," UF
coach Buddy Alexander said. "But he showed
that he's as capable as any golfer in the nation
over thelast two days of this tournament. He
played with passion and was really enjoying
himself out there today. It's great to see Billy
being Billy again, and that's certainly what
we need him to be as we enter the final stretch
of the year."
Over the course of the three-day tourna-
ment, the team tallied an 867 (3 over), landing

They just couldn't do it.
They said taking UF sopho-
more pitcher Stacey Nelson out
of the picture was necessary to
defeat the Gators.

been doing this all year," UF
coach Tim Walton said of
Nelson, who pitched complete
games against Georgia Tech
and Texas. "Stacey has 13 losses
on the year, and I think eight of
them have been one-run games.
I can't say enough about her
maturity."
Nelson set a team record
Friday when she pitched her
31st win of the season, passing
the 10-year-old mark of 30 set
by former UF pitcher Chelsey
Sakizzie.
Nelson's school record now
stands at 33.
"You've gotta hit Nelson,"
