Students buckle up after crash claims classmate


FHP seat belt drive starts this weekend


By TRACY FLACK
Alligator Contributing Writer

Memorial Day marks the begin-
ning of the Florida Highway Patrol's
annual Click It or Ticket campaign
to promote the use of seat belts.


This year, the message may hit
closer to home for some UF stu-
dents.
UF engineering senior Mario
Pino was killed in a car crash last
weekend when he was ejected from
the vehicle he was driving. He was


not wearing a seat belt, according to
the Florida Highway
Public Patrol.
Safe y During the cam-
paign, anyone caught
not wearing a seat belt will be given
a ticket, said FHP spokesman Lt.


Mike Burroughs.
"It's a simple thing to do," said
UF anthropology senior George
Birnbaum, a member of Tau Kappa
Epsilon with Pino, about wearing
seat belts. "It takes two seconds, and
it could save your life."
During last year's Memorial
Day weekend, 54 total deaths in


51 separate crashes were reported,
said FHP's statewide chief of pub-
lic affairs Maj. Ernie Duarte. About
60 percent of those killed were not
wearing their seat belts.
"We have a lot more crashes,"
Duarte said. "That means more in-
juries and death."

Springs ready


for summer
By LINDSEY STEVENS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Even with gas prices cresting over $3 per gallon
and smoke clouds not quite dissolved, employees
at Ginnie Springs still aren't concerned about losing
business Memorial Day weekend.
The week of Memorial Day is the busiest week
of the year for Ginnie Springs, said Connie LoRe, a
manager at the springs, and so far there hasn't been a
lull in guests due to high gas prices.
"We haven't seen any decrease," LoRe said. "If
someone is living in Tampa and thinking about
driving up to Tennessee, with the high gas prices,
they might want to stay in-state. It might work to the
benefit of Florida," she said.
Additionally, she said she doesn't think the smoke
will be a problem now that it is clearing.
"It's improved from what it was a week ago,"
she said. "Depending on Mother Nature, God and
the way the wind blows, hopefully we won't be sub-
jected too much."
Ginnie Springs is a vacation spot both for local
residents and for guests coming from out of town. Its
200-plus acres offer swimming, scuba diving, snor-
keling, camping, tubing, canoeing and picnicking.
"Ginnie Springs is pretty much world-re-
nowned," LoRe said. "People come from all over the

Gatorade-like drink designed for active animals


By DREW HARWELL
and AMRITHA ALLADI
Alligator Staff Writers

The average pets spend their
days running around their homes,
jumping onto couches and chas-
ing toys.


Why, then, are they always
given just plain water?
A local UF-partnered research
laboratory, the Gainesville
Technology Enterprise Center, has
the answer.
Along with BioGalaxy Inc.,
the center recently released


"Animactive," a drink designed
to rehydrate and rejuvenate the
world's forgotten athletes pets.
Nicknamed "Gatorade for ani-
mals," the drink is being marketed
for every animal from racehorses
to livestock and from K-9 units to
domesticated pets, according to a


Opie the dog drinks Animactive, a new "animal hydrating beverage" that was developed at UF from the
same base ingredients as Gatorade.


press release.
Sold for $2.49 a bottle at
Gainesville's Earth Pets Natural
Pet Market, 500 NW 60th St.,
Animactive is available in four
flavors: natural, filet mignon,
chicken kiev and ahi tuna, said
Kharl Cheng, chief operating of-
ficer at BioGalaxy.
The drink comes in 16-ounce
bottles, complete with supple-
ment facts, directions and a
catchy slogan: "When Water Just
Won't Do."
According to the supplement
facts, the -serving size about
half the bottle provides ani-
mals with five calories and 100
percent of their daily suggested
Vitamin C.
Directions on the bottle advise
humans or literate pets to serve
animals the water three times a
day, or more often when the tem-
perature reaches extreme levels.
Based on research by J. Robert
Cade, R. Malcolm Privette and
Melvin J. Fregly, the early inven-
tors of UF's successful Gatorade
sports drink, the new drink pro-
vides fluids and vitamins. B, B6,
B12, D and A, Cheng said.
Its formula not only replen-
ishes the animal with fluids, he
added, but also effectively main-
tains good blood volume levels
and healthy bone density.
Animactive was produced
in response to the countless
animal deaths that followed the
Hurricane Katrina catastrophe,


said Marvin Heuer, BioGalaxy's
chief executive officer.
Animactive is exactly what
animal shelter, police K-9 units,
equine units and emergency
animal rescue services need, he
added.
"We all watched many news
stories about abandoned and in-
jured animals following the dev-
astation in New Orleans," Heuer
said. "We wish Animactive had
been ready then."
"We're in the midst of pro-
ducing concentrate to pour
into the troughs of larger
animals."
Kharl Cheng
BioGalaxy chief operating officer


Though the 16-ounce bottles
of Animactive were released in
January, modifications to suit
larger animals are underway,
Cheng said.
"We're in the midst of produc-
ing concentrate to pour into the
troughs of larger animals," Cheng
said. "We just need to figure out
how much water to add."
Animactive lists five separate
patents on the bottle's label, add-
ing that the project is licensed by
UF.
The Gainesville Technology
Enterprise Center provides tools
and support for flourishing ideas,
research and business models.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Moseley on Board of Govs.


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

UF Student Government officials used
student money to travel to Fort Myers on
May 17-18 to attend a leadership confer-
ence for SG leaders from public universities
around the state.
The trip cost more than $600 and was
paid for with students' Activity & Service
Fee, according to SG records.
Students pay about $9 toward the
A&S Fee per semester, said Student Body
President Ryan Moseley.
"We're like every academic organization,"
Moseley said. "We have a travel budget."
Moseley said the Florida Student
Association is one of the lines of the budget
that calls for "big chunks of change."


Moseley was elected chairman of the as-
sociation at this past conference.
As chairman of FSA, Moseley will have a
seat on the Board of Governors, which con-
trols all policymaking for state universities,
said David Drescher, director of external
affairs the position
formerly known as lobby
coordinator.
FS'A meets several
times a year to discuss
issues concerning stu-
dents within the State
University System.
Moseley The meetings allow
all SG organizations to channel their efforts
toward the same goals, Drescher said.
"It's about all the students coming to-
gether on the same page," he said.


SG cuts banquet funds


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer

UF Student Government officials
will have to leave their formal wear at
home for future SG banquets, accord-
ing to one SG executive.
The Cabinet director in charge of
banquet planning has been removed,
said Student Body Vice President
Vanessa Goodwin.
She added that she also plans to
scale back the banquet's funds.
The move to nix the position was
made during a meeting of top SG exec-
utives to make Cabinet more efficient,
Goodwin said.
While records show $4,200 of stu-


dent money is budgeted for awards,
most of it has typically gone toward
the banquet. At the spring banquet, SG
officials dropped $3,885 on the event,
including plaques and other awards.
But Goodwin said her chief of staff
would take over the
On planning, which will be
Calmpui i more low-key in the fu-
ture, such as a picnic at
Lake Wauburg.
SG officials will be inducted during
a Senate meeting, rather than at the
event, Goodwin said. Leftover money
will go toward student programs, she
added.
"We want to use students' dollars in
the best way for students," she said.

* THE SPUDS ARE
GROWN WITHOUT THE
USE OF DYES.

By SARAH ZARATE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students were surprised
to see an odd patriotic
display on the floor of the
Reitz Union Colonnade on
Wednesday a stack of
red, white and blue potatoes.
"Are you interested in buy-
ing potatoes?" asked Sherry
Kao, a horticultural sci-
ences graduate student at
UF who helped with the sale.
Kao is a member of the
Horticultural Sciences
Graduate Club at UF, whose
mission was to sell the
Memorial Day-themed pota-
toes as a fundraiser.
Kao said the UF Research


and Education Center in
Hastings, Fla., donated the
colorful spuds. The red and
blue potatoes are naturally
occurring versions of the
more familiar white potatoes,
so no dyes were used, she
explained.
The money raised will
support students in the club
at conferences and help
cover their travel expenses.
"Sometimes, we don't get
covered by our .advisers,"
Kao explained.
By the end of the day, the
club had already raised about
$200, Kao said.- The sale will
continue today and Friday
from 4:30 p.m. t9 6 p.m. at
Fifield Hall. Because blue
potatoes are not often seen in
supermarkets, they were the
most popular.
"They're just funky -
something special," Kao said.

Senate has final say

SENATE, from page 1

removed from their Senate committees and face expul-
sion hearings.
Glenda Frederick, Student Senate secretary, said
that in her 13 years at UF, no senators have ever been
expelled for failing to meet these requirements.
Johns said the recommendations for expulsion
were based on senators' efforts to meet their probation
requirements and the number of
G rSt nment times they have been on proba-
tion.
"Senators can't get elected and
never talk to those who put them in office," Johns said
in an interview Wednesday. "My committee made the
requirements very dear, and 'I didn't know' is not an
acceptable excuse this summer."
On Wednesday, Johns said she and her committee
were considering clarifying and updating Senate stat-
utes this summer.
Johns said she believes her committee acted cor-
rectly and would continue to show "zero tolerance."
"Statutes are laws, and laws will be followed," she
said.


Springs draw visitors from across country

world because it's a dive destination as well as
a campground, so people in every country that
are divers are aware of Ginnie Springs."
However, the fact that its attractions are
all outdoors may still deter some people from
coming.
"I think its a concern of people," LoRe said.
According to the WCJB news station Web
site, the nearby fires are about 90 percent con-
tained. A change in wind direction could cause
the smoke to blow south.
Gainesville resident Michelle Elliott, 25,
plans to host her family from South. Florida
for Memorial Day weekend. She plans to take
them to Ginnie Springs, but she said she might
reconsider, depending on the conditions.
"If it's smoky on the day we plan to go to the
springs, we won't go," Elliott said. "It is a three-
hour drive for my family, so not only will it be
a huge disappointment, it will be a huge waste
of expensive gas."
Elliott said her family has wanted to visit
the springs since she moved here a year and
a half ago.'
"My family has wanted to do this for a long
time, so I hope we won't be let down," she
said.

Hopefully you spent more time this week soaking up the
sun and enjoying the beautiful weather than you did in the

homeless no, literally. The proposed budget cuts would
eliminate the city's funding of the Gainesville Office of
Homelessness and eliminate or reduce funding for the one-
stop homeless center.
But we do have an every-cloud-has-its-silver-lining
LAUREL for the cuts that trim the fat. Budget cuts often help
- albeit sometimes painfully organizations learn how to
be more efficient. Of course, we can't help but think this is the
case for programs like GPD's Party Patrol, which may receive
the boot. How efficient is it for cops to scan the monitors and
only respond to calls of loud parties, except, of course, in the
case of an emergency?
We give a may-lightning-smite-you DART to the thieves
stealing money from The Gainesville Sun newspaper racks.
At first we considered laurelling them "Hey, we're a free
newspaper, so we don't have this problem," an anonymous
staffer said but then, in the spirit of journalistic solidarity,
we decided to stand by our friends at the Sun.
The newspaper-carriers bear the brunt of these crimes,
and they lose about $30 per machine. We hope the thieves
are caught before the carriers are "completely bankrupt and
homeless," as Clayton Barco, a newspaper carrier, jokingly
put it.
We can't have the nature edition without some wildlife, so
here's a we-hope-you-get-back-into-the-woods-soon LAUREL
for the black bear and her cub that were rescued from Osceola
National Forest May 13. The baby bear climbed a tree to escape
the flames while its mother stood guard. The mother's paws
were burned, but both bears are doing fine now. And that
makes us "beary" happy.

New library food policy bad for books


The most exciting thing to happen on campus in
the last two weeks has been the new food rules at
Library West. If you haven't heard, Library West
is the guinea pig for a pilot project that replaces the old
"covered drinks" policy with a more open policy that
permits snacks.
Since Library West re-opened last fall, the library
has become the new hang-out spot. for students. It
has exceeded expectations in terms of patron capacity,
frequently filling all 110 computer workstations and
therefore attracting complaints from the more studious
students.
Working as a library student assistant during the fall
and spring semesters at the circulation desk, I tended to
forget I was working in a library.
When I learned of the new policy, I was conflicted.
On the one hand, I wouldn't have to deal with stu-
dents giving me dirty looks and attitude as I asked
them to put their half-eaten muffins away. I would no
longer, receive obscene remarks in the morning from
disgruntled early risers who happened to carelessly pa-
rade their food past the desk. Confrontation has never
been my forte, and I am glad I won't have to deal with
it anymore.
On the other hand, I now have to handle complaints
regarding rotting food in group study room trash cans,
food-stained books and countless coffee spills. Food-
related horror stories have become legends within the
library staff we've even had to turn away food de-
liverers.
But even if I hadn't experienced this, I would still
disagree with the new policy. The library has become
the new hangout for students. At first, this appears to
reflect positive growth in the intellectual and academic


Productivity of UF's students. If
thousands of students using the
library each day, one may assume
they are taking advantage of the
Library's facilities and therefore
are learning.
Dorothy Atkins Perhaps this would hold true
letters@alligator.org in an ideal environment, but un-
fortunately, I don't see how you
can work with the guy next to
you obnoxiously munching on a bag of chips.
One professor said the library was becoming more
like an entertainment center. He thought that a proper
library should create an oppressive environment, which
would prevent noise and distraction. Although I think
his idea of a library is a bit medieval, he has a point.
The other day, a graduate student approached the
circulation desk, genuinely concerned about this new
policy. She asked for my opinion, she asked for my
supervisor's opinion, and then she stared at the survey,
considering the situation. After what appeared to be a
grueling few minutes, she finally shook her head and
filled out the form.
Immediately afterward, two undergraduate students
approached, and they too saw the survey. "Awesome!"
said one girl. "That's so exciting!" said the other. They
left without filling out a survey, and I recognized one of
them as a food-bearing patron from weeks ago.
I realized, despite any institutional policy decided
by the powers that be, that as -long as students treat
the library as a hangout spot, they will continue to eat
- regardless of policy.

Gainesville latest stop on 800-mile cycling fundraiser


* THE CYCLISTS HOPE TO
RAISE $75,000.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

When people want to grab life by
the handlebars, they usually take a
quick bicycle ride around the block.
But for the cyclists of Gear Up
Florida, an 800-mile-long cycling
event, the two-week trip from
Miami to Tallahassee seems more
appealing.
An. all-volunteer team of 29
cyclists and eight crewmembers
were escorted by the Alachua
County Sheriff's Office into town
Wednesday morning.
The group, which is traveling
across the state in hopes of raising
more than $75,000 for people with
disabilities, left Miami on May 13
and expects to arrive in Tallahassee
by May 26.
"Gainesville is one of the 13 cit-
ies they make a stop in," said Abby
Symonds, a spokeswoman for Push
America, which has coordinated
Gear Up Florida since 1988.
Push America is made up of
Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity members
who promote enhancing the lives of
people with disabilities.
"People need to show empathy
instead of sympathy," said Jon
Wilson, the project manager of
Gear Up Florida. "We always try
to put the person before the disabil-


ity. Sympathy is giving your pity.
Empathy is actually understanding
what it is like."
Once in Gainesville, the Gear
Up Florida team arrived at the Arc
of Alachua County, a nonprofit
organization that encourages inde-
pendence in the developmentally
disabled, at about 11 a.m.
"There was a big arrival here and
a big crowd from the Arc," said Gear
Up Florida sponsor John Spence.
"I's a really fun and happy day for
the folks here."
The cyclists average. 75 miles a
day on their bikes.
"After cycling, they do friend-
ship visits," Wilson said. "This can
range from dances to dinners. We
go to different arts and community
centers."
The Gear Up Florida team fin-
ished its day in Gainesville with a
dance at Tacachale, a community
for the developmentally disabled at
1621 NE Waldo Rd. They spent the
night in the auditorium.
Other services Gear Up Florida
provides, to visited cities are Kids
on the Block puppet shows, which
teach children about disabilities,
and empathy dinners.
"What we do for empathy din-
ners is give people a disability while
they're eating," Wilson said. "We
blindfold them, tape their fingers
together We ask them how it felt."
Each Gear Up Florida cyclist has
to raise a minimum of $2,000 to be
considered a team member. Team


members realize the trip can be a
dangerous and draining experience.
"They actually had a couple of
wrecks," Spence said. "One of the
guys had to stay in North Florida to


make sure he didn't have a concus-
sion."
Robert Czajak, a senior at the
State University of New York in
Brockport, has been a cyclist in Gear


Up Florida for two years.
"We have to push ourselves on
the bike every day. We have times
we need to make," Czajak said. "We
don't necessarily get tons of sleep."

The cyclists of Gear Up Florida arrive at the Arc of Alachua County at about 11:15 a.m. Wednesday. The
group is cycling from Miami to Tallahassee and back to raise money for disabled people.


UF RESEARCH

UF graduate students, faculty camp out with elephants


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
.. rr. 1, g 3 .:.,' .,, ;

A group of UF students are spending their summer follow-
ing herds of elephants.
Nine UF graduate students traveled to Africa May 15 with
eight faculty members to spend 11 weeks studying growing
elephant populations. They will spend their time in the Caprivi
region of Namibia and the Chobe area of Botswana, according
to a press release from the department of geography.
In these regions, 40 percent of the world's elephants strip
the land of vegetation.
Each of the almost 150,000 giant animals eats about 400
pounds of grasses, leaves, bark and roots daily. But that's not
the only problem.
According to the release, the elephant population doubles
every 13 years. Also, because elephants have no concept of


"There's camping, and then there's camping in
the bush in Africa."
Jane Southworth
UF associate professor of geography

human-invented national boundaries, they tend to trample
farmers' crops, said Jane Southworth, an associate professor of
geography at UE
Despite the problems, elephants are critical to the economic
development of the region because they draw tourists, she
said.
Eight students from countries in southern Africa will join
the UF group, along with other experts from,Zimbabwe,
Zambia, Botswana and Namibia. The group will study local
communities and their natural resources, land use and climate
effects, according to the release.


Southworth said Brian Child, an associate geography pro-
fessor at UF, came up with the idea of helping the communities
three years ago.
She said Child is training the locals in the regions to solve
conflicts and bring more of the money from elephant tour-
ism to their smaller communities rather than the country's
economy.
Child could not be reached by press time because he is in
Africa.
Southworth said the trip cost more than $100,000.
Since the Northern and Southern hemispheres have oppo-
site seasons, participants will be experiencing southern Africa's
winter season, according to a press release.
Because of the high prices of hotel rooms, the group will
brave the winter in tents.
"There's camping, and then there's camping in the bush in
Africa," Southworth said. "You're living with nature. You're
driving through a safari everywhere you go."

SEAT BELTS, from page 1

This year the program, spon-
sored by the Florida Department. of
Transportation, is putting an extra effort
into getting the message out with print,
radio and TV commercials.
"If you don't keep up a constant
pressure through public education,
you'll lose the emphasis seat belts
carry," Burroughs said.
The Lake City FHP headquarters,
which oversees Alachua County, will be
cosed for the weekend so 12 additional
officers can be out on patrol, Burroughs
said.
"We are asking people to realize
how important it is to wear their seat
belts," Duarte said.


Everybody in the car should work
together to ensure that everyone gets to
the destination safely, he added.
"We see cars packed with kids
having a good time and the driver is
distracted," Duarte said. "You have to
allow the driver to drive."
He said FHP is concerned about
people ages 16 and 25 because most
deaths occur within that age group.
"Even with higher gas prices, and
even with the smoke conditions and
wildfires, we know we're still going to
see an increased amount of traffic this
weekend," Burroughs said.
He added that the most common
excuse people give for not wearing a
seat belt is that it would wrinkle their
clothes. He's also heard people say that
it causes them to feel claustrophobic.

New hookah lounge smells sweet


KRISTEN HANNA ) AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER
It is said to be a custom akin to sitting around and
drinking beer with friends, but this tradition has an age
minimum of only 18.
While its origins are Middle Eastern, smoking flavored
tobacco out of a hookah, a multi-stemmed water pipe, can
be its own social experience.
This week marks the Hookah Hutt Caf'-s tenth week
of operation, and the lounge offers a different expenence
than the long-standing Farah's on the Avenue.
"1 like it here because there's no alcohol," said Eisa al
Nashmi. a UF graduate student from Kuwait. "This is
more calm, and it's specic to hookah."
A tend o his. N luhammad al latar, who is also from
Kuwait has smoked hookah since hewas 18=
"Back home its a tradition in culture," al Matar said.
The friends differ in their opinion of whether hookah
is addictive, but they do agree on one aspect of hookah:
its smell.
"It's definitely not like a cigarette," said al Matar, who
smokes cigarettes as well as hookah.
"If someone smokes a cigarette, you don't want to be


near them," al Nashmi said. "But a hookah is not that
bad."
Customers can rent a private party room in the back
of the caf6 any night of the week, or can watch a belly
dancer in the front on -the last Friday and Saturday of
every month.
With an assortment of beaded, tasseled and metallic
threaded cushions and upholstery, shaded windows and
dangling chandebers, the Hookah Hutt Cae's interior is a
nurture ot Middle Easter and modem influences.
The cafe -erves teas. coffees. juices and energy drinks,
along with vanrous pastries, including baklava and con-
fections called Turkish Delights Hookah Hutt Cafe is also
a spot to find imported milk chocolate bars called "Kinder
chocolate."
"It's really popular back home," al Nashmi said of the
chocolates.
"I've been here for hke three years, [and] this is the first
time I've seen Kinder chocolate," al Matar said.
When asked about the scarce availabilit- of Kinder, al
Nashmijokingly suggested that they were kept out of the
country because they would no doubt monopolize the
chocolate industry.

Bands flock


for fame
downtown Orlando was a victim of
e glamorous music industry this
Weekend as- thousands .of people
from around the country swarmed Orange
Avenue during the sixth annual Florida
Music Festival & Conference.
Some were there to listen to music,
others to share their own. Record label
representatives searched for their next big
money-maker while teenage girls stood
behind stages, hoping to catch the attention
of a sweaty musician.
The festival featured live music, an inde-
pendent film competition, rock-inspired art
and a conference with panelists from vari-
ous record companies.
The conference, which took place Friday
and Saturday afternoon, was held on the
second floor of the Marriott hotel it was
overtaken by what the concierge described
as a "bunch of rockers."
The forums were an outlet for Artist and
Repertoire representatives, as musicians
turned to these music scouts for guidance.
Guest panelists from major record labels,
including Atlantic Records, Virgin Records
and Epic Records spoke about their expe-
rience in the music industry and offered
advice to prospective.
Musicians showed off their talents in the
Guitar Hero area, tables featured fliers and
CDs, and bands could be seen huddled to-
gether, plotting ways to get demos into the
Right hands.
Meanwhile, A&R representatives atten-
tively listened to the lines of hopefuls.

SHOWTIME
From Thursday to Sunday, during the
concert portion of the festival, 250 unsigned
bands took center stage and had the oppor-
tunity to perform for crowds of all sizes.
Alocal Gainesvilleband, Ten 13 Concept,
used the opportunity to debut their new
self-titled E.P. Friday night.
Heads in the audience nodded to the
beat as the band delivered the energetic
performance it is known for.
Proving that the guys like to mix things
up, lead singer Joe Loffredo broke out into
the band's rendition of "Ridin" and "Dirt
Off Your Shoulders" mid-set.
"Even if you don't like what we were
doing before, you know that something
is coming up that you will like," Loffredo
said.

Thousands enjoyed live shows at 15 different venues in Orlando last weekend at the Florida Music Festival and Conference.


the festival, Ten 13 Concept was there to
make connections and learn as much as
they could from the interactive panels.
"You have to just step up to the plate and
be very business savvy," Loffredo said.
Between their two E.P.s, one full-length
album and a DVD, the band has sold ap-
proximately 1,900 copies independently
- it has toured twice and collaborated on
two Hurricane Katrina relief CDs.
"At this point, we are at the stage where'
we have turned down deals," Loffredo said.
"We have done everything ourselves: mar-
keting, promotion, production."

INDUSTRY TRENDS
An entrepreneurial spirit is taking lead
in the music industry today instead of


turning, to big record labels to do all the
promotions and distributions, with the
use of the Internet, artists are doing it
themselves.
Independent labels such as Fueled by
Ramen and Saddle Creek Records have
demonstrated that artists can benefit more
from private distribution.
John Janick, a UF graduate and co--
founder of Fueled by Ramen Records was
the guest speaker of "A Conversation with
John Janick" Saturday afternoon.
"This man is the hottest man in the
industry right now," said Steve Robertson,
Vice President of A&R for Atlartic
Records.
People turn to independent labels as a
source for other artists signed under the


same company, Janick and Robertson said.
Independent labels often serve as mid-
dlemen to get their artists on major labels,
while still retaining control of the band.
"We have to be more artist-friendly,"
said Ken Blaustein, A&R representative for
Virgin Records.
"The business is much more kinder
and gentler than it was before. Now we
are the cheerleaders wearing the skirts and
pompoms."
Other segments of the conference
mentored attendees on booking shows,
promoting tours and making films.
One underlying theme pervaded the 16
forums: if you want to make it somewhere
in the industry, you'll have to create a buzz
for yourself.


ust love can make a pizza perfect


"I'm a pizza fanatic!" said Satchel Raye,
the owner of Satchel's Pizza, who started
making pizza when he was 16.
Following his dream to own a pizza
place, Satchel scouted Gainesville for a few
years before settling on an obscure location
near Waldo Road: 1800 NE 23rd Ave.
"It was what I could afford," Satchel
said.
The first pies were served March 7,
2003.
And they became a phenomenon.
People come from all over, and at least
40 are. waiting to be seated on a Friday
night, he said.
"It's the quality and taste of pizza that


makes us different," Satchel said. "There's
a couple of secret ingredients in the dough,
and there's a couple of secret ingredients
in the sauce."
But you can't find Satchel's secret at the
grocery store. The real "secret" ingredient
is love it's even printed on the list of in-
.gredients on the salad dressing bottles for
sale in the restaurant.
"We're not trying to compete with
Domino's," Satchel said.
And it doesn't stop with the taste din-
ing out there is always an experience. The
junk museum features a gift shop and
lounge.
Local bands play live music in the


lounge every night, so customers can sit
down, get a drink from the bar, relax and
listen to the music while they wait for a
table, Satchel said.
Satchel keeps his 1965 Ford Falcon
parked in the garden area of his pizza
place. He had lived and worked out of the
van, but after the restaurant opened, he
said he realized the van was worth more
as a table than a mode of transportation.
"When you put a van out front and
have a junk museum, anything goes."
Satchel's Pizza is open from Tuesday to
Saturday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Two days off per week keeps Satchel
and his employees from getting "burnt
out," he said.

Shrek sinks in third sexual


I went in with very high expectations for
"Shrek the Third," and I was seriously disap-
pointed. I think the full title should be "Shrek
the Third Worst Film in the Series," or "Shrek
the Third Time is Not the Charm."
I loved the previous two and was excited
about this film for a while..
One would think it is a trivial matter
to produce these comic story lines, but as
"Spider-Man 3" has shown us, a winning for-
mula- if forced can be derisive.
The first two movies were predicated on
parody and a sense of undeniable silliness,
but "Shrek the Third" attempts to be original,
takes itself seriously and desperately tries to
cing to what made it successful in the past. It
was forced.
I enjoy self-reference in a movie (Mel.
Brooks saying "It's good to be the king" is a
prime example), but there is a limit. It was also
distressing when jokes fell flat. All the high
school scenes were forced and awkward.
The only part of the movie that did not
reek of rot was the introduction of Merlin,
with Eric Idle playing the voice. The character
single-handedly carried the movie out of the
realm of the abysmal with his portrayal as


an overstressed
crackpot. It had
the warmth of
the first two


9


movies.
The movie's
score was
particularly MARK.KEREMEDJIEV
troubling, as the
series is known for its charming incorporation
of music. Why did "Live and Let Die" play at
a funeral scene? I'm at a loss. Or how about
Fergie's needless cover of "Barracuda?" It
sounds like the original song.
I do feel compelled, however, to nod
toward the improved graphics. Common
Gateway Interface has come a long way from
the first film, but while the world they created
was visually stunning, it was also distracting
- I was staring at the characters' hair more
often then their faces. Halfway through the
movie's 92-minute runtime, I wanted it to
end, yet found myself disappointed that there
were so many loose ends to tie up.
I would have been pleased if Merlin ac-
cidentally blew up the whole world in a puff
of pink smoke.


Date without a dent


Spring has sprung with romance in
the air.
With flowers blooming and love
bugs spooning, it's hard to fight flying
sparks.
Whether you're playing the field or
settling down, your budget probably
needs some new cheap date ideas.
Take a chance: Flaunt your culinary
finesse by opting for a homemade feast
instead of restaurant cuisine. Buying
and cooking your own food is a lot
cheaper than going out and having it
prepared.
If the skies are clear, try a picnic.
If you're feeling adventurous, take a
trip to Lake Wauburg. Admission and
rentals are free with a valid Gator 1
Card. From paddleboats to water skis,
exercise can be fun. Or, you can slow it
down with a romantic paddle around
the lake by canoe. And don't forget to
bring lunch. Paynes Prairie offers nature
trails for biking and hiking. It's great for
exercise or just a scenic escapade.
If you're a dog lover, check out
the Alachua County Humane Society,
which allows volunteers to foster dogs

Always fly to concerts with a willing wing


I've recently become a fan of the
Gainesville music scene those places
downtown that are always advertising
drink specials and local bands.
A buddy of mine once dated a girl -
now the bartender at one of these places
- so he had frequented the concert cir-
cuit for a few months. This particular
night, some band he followed was play-
ing, and he dragged my roommates and
me to check it out.
To my surprise, the place was stacked
with eligible talent and was perfectly
set up for meeting new dating material.
I watched my roommate as he ran
into girl after girl whom he had met at
earlier concerts.
I realized this was a hutge1 untapped
resource that had gone undbscovered
during m-i tirt few y\e.irs at LIT.
\\c planted o.ursel.I e at a table and
started scannmng the room for potential


"beautiful babies," as he refers to them
As the night progressed and the place
began to fill up a little bit, a group oi
girls spotted our table, which had three
extra chairs.
The group consisted of a blonde
(along with her fake
twins) and a bru- ""q
nette who had the S / "
whole trendy emo-
band-groupie thing
going for her. -
These two were Ina
welcome additions
to the table.
The problem was the third leg of thi!
female tripod: the grenade.
Now, this is a term my roommate!
and I use to describe the friend of th(
hot girls who was not blessed with thi
same physique as her head-turninq
Lounterpart;I


The term is not gender specific and
can be used either way.
f The name derives from the explosive
ability of this individual to deter any-
one who would be attempting to chat
with her friends (she accomplishes this
through her far-too-
.obvious discontent
with being dubbed
the third wheel).
For many groups
l .. of guys, this third
tal, could present a
challenge.
But we had our
s resident grenade-jumper.
With him' around, there is never a
s question of "Who's jumping on the
e grenade?"
S It is the job of the wingman to sacri-
g fice himself and jump on the grenade so
as to diffuse the blast and allow unhin-


dered conver-
sation for his
friends.
He has a


PATRICK TROY


willingness
rivaled by no one, and because of that,
my housemates owe a great deal of
their happiness to him.
With the potential grenade blast dif-
fused, all parties involved were happily
paired off and the night went beauti-
fully.
Local bands could be proud of the
role they played in joining the student
body, sad emo girls could see there was
happiness for them, too, and silicone-
clad blondes could rest easy, knowing
Dr. 90210 wasworth every penny.
All grenades male or female
- can rejoice because, for every pea
there is a pod, for every rock star, there
is a Penny Lane.

ROUNDUP

LaPorta receives SEC Player of the Year honors


STAFF REPORT

Senior first baseman Matt LaPorta and a
handful of his teammates were honored by
Southeastern Conference coaches Tuesday.
For the second time in three years, LaPorta
was named SEC Player of the Year and a
member of the All-SEC first team.
.,pior outfielder Brian Leclerc joined the
slugger on the first team while outfielders
Matt den Dekker and Jonathan Pigott and
shortstop Cole Figueroa were named to the
All-Freshman team. UF's three selections
to the freshman squad tied Mississippi for
most in the conference.
LaPorta was named SEC Player of the
Year in 2005 as well. He is the first player
to receive the award twice and remains
UF's first-ever recipient.
In 2005, the junior finished with an


NCAA-best 26 home runs. His efforts
helped the Gators to the final round of the
College World Series in Omaha, Neb.
After an injury-plagued 2006 season,
LaPorta returned for a final year, and
while UF's success has not mirrored that
of 2005, the first baseman's has.
He entered the SEC Tournament lead-
ing the conference with a batting average
of .419 with an on-base percentage of .591.
He has notched 50 RBI and 19 home runs.
LaPorta has struggled recently, how-
ever, going 1-for-8 at the plate in his last
four ballgames.
Opposing teams have refused to pitch
to .LaPorta, walking him 12 times in that
span.

LEVINE HONORED: All season long, UF
coach Andy Jackson knew freshman Jesse


Levine was one of the best players he'd
ever coached.
Everyone else is beginning to notice as
well.
"It's a big honor, but it's an honor
(Levine) deserves."
Andy Jackson
UF coach

Levine, .ranked No. 3 in singles,
was named the Intercollegiate Tennis
Association's National Rookie Player of
the ear on Tuesday.
"It's a big honor, but it's an honor
(Levine) deserves," Jackson said.
As play began Wednesday in the NCAA
Singles Championship, Levine and the
other four UF entries all advanced to to-


day's second-round action in Athens, Ga.
Jackson said third-seeded Levine
looked a little tight Wednesday but played
well enough to defeat Virginia's Treat
Huey 6-3, 6-4.
While Levine was busy winning
awards, freshman Megan Alexander was
busy defeating award winners.
No. 39 Alexander defeated North
Carolina's Jenna Long 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (3) in
the biggest UF upset on Wednesday. No.
10 Long was named ITA Senior Player of
the Year.
Also advancing were freshman Csilla
Borsanyi, junior No. 23 Diana Srebrovic
and junior No. 21 Greg Ouellette.
Levine and Ouellette will also begin
doubles competition today as the No. 3
seed in the 32-team tournament.

Early UF lead negated by errors in extra-inning loss


By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer
aweintraub@aligator.org

HOOVER, Ala. It might not
be the Red Sox and Yankees, but
UF and South Carolina have made


a habit of turning their meetings
into nail-biters.
Their last three showdowns
have been decided in the ninth in-
ning or later, and Wednesday was
no exception. In both clubs' first
match of the 2007 Southeastern


Conference Tournament, the
Gamecocks (40-17, 18-13 SEC)
bested the Gators (28-29, 15-16
SEC) in 12 innings by a score of
4-3.
"It's a tough loss for our ball-
club," UF coach Pat McMahon


UF senior relief pitcher David Hurst reacts after South Carolina's Harley Lail hit a walk-off single in the
12th inning of the Gators' 4-3 loss to the Gamecocks on Wednesday.


said. "You have to give. South
Carolina an awful lot of credit.
They just played their hearts out,
and that's what tournament time
is all about."
The Gators played the
Gamecocks tough but were unable
to hold on to an early 3-0 lead after
costly mistakes in the infield.
USC scored all of its runs in
innings where the leadoff hitter
reached base on an error. None of
the squad's runs were earned.
In the bottom of the 12th in-
ning, Gamecocks first baseman
Justin Smoak hit a sharp grounder
that shortstop Cole Figueroa
couldn't field. Smoak would end
up on third after a balk and a sac-
rifice bunt. After two intentional
walks, outfielder Harley Lail drove
a single up the middle to win the
game for USC.
"We did our best," first base-
man Matt LaPorta said. "We just
didn't come through today."
UF struck first in the second
inning after Gamecocks ace Harris
Honeycutt walked the bases
loaded and catcher Cody Neer hit
a sacrifice fly to score outfielder
Brian Leclerc from third.
The Gators would add two more
in the third inning. Figueroa led off
the frame with a double, and sec-
ond baseman Avery Barnes drove
him in with a single in the next
at-bat. Designated hitter Austin
Pride would drive in Barnes with
a single later in the inning.
But the Gators' hitters went


cold for the rest of the game.
In the remaining nine innings,
UF would only be able to muster
two more hits against Honeyattt
and the USC bullpen.
"He sinks down a little bit right
before he pitches," LaPorta said.
"That was throwing my timing off,
and I'm sure it was throwing the
other hitters off too."
Freshman pitcher Kyle
Mullaney would hold USC in
check until the sixth inning, when
the Gamecocks were able to capi-
talize on an error and a wild pitch
to score twice.
The Gators had a shot to add
some runs in their next at-bat, but
after loading the bases with one
out, they were un-
able to convert.
"The seventh
inning was key,"
Baseball McMahon said.
"We had two op-
portunities to push
that lead up some, and we didn't
come through."
USC would take advantage of
another UF error in the seventh to
tie the game on a sacrifice fly.
Mullaney threw six innings, al-
lowing 5 hits and 3 runs none of
them earned.
"I just tried to keep us in the
game," Mullaney said. "Now we
just have to come out and try to-
morrow."

Gators to face Crimson Tide with season on the line


* A LOSS WOULD BRING THE
TEAM'S SEASON TO AN END.

By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmcall@alligator.org

HOOVER, Ala. Thanks to the double-
elimination format of the Southeastern
Conference Tournament, the UF baseball team
will live to play another day, despite their loss
to South Carolina on Wednesday.
Unfortunately for the Gators, today's
10 a.m. CDT (11 a.m.. EDT)matchup with
Alabama may be the end of their season, as
their hopes for a trip to the NCAA Tournament
look bleak.
Teams must have a record of at least .500
to qualify for an at-large bid, and at 28-29, UF
will need two wins to become eligible.
To do that, the Gators would need a win

against the Crimson Tide today and a victory
Friday against the loser of today's matchup
between second-seeded Arkansas and the
third-seeded Gamecocks.
That feat is certainly a tall order, but as
usual, UF isn't looking ahead.
"What we really want to do is just go out
and play our game," UF first baseman Matt
LaPorta said.
Today's tilt with Alabama (31-25) presents
UF with an excellent chance to get its first win,
as the Gators took two of three from the Tide
earlier this month in Gainesville.
This time, however, the game might as well
be in Tuscaloosa, which. is just a 45-minute
drive from Regions Park in Hoover.
Due to the large expected crowd of crim-
son-clad supporters, UF is treating the match-
up like an away game.
"Obviously, playing here in Hoover, there's
going to be a large contingency of Alabama

fans," UF coach Pat McMahon said.
"It's a great opportunity for our guys,
but it'll definitely be a partisan crowd for
Alabama, as it ought to be."
"What we really want to do is just
go out and play our game."
Matt LaPorta
UF first baseman

The Crimson Tide, who lost to Arkansas on
Wednesday, also face elimination.
Junior Bryan Augenstein will be charged
with quieting the rowdy Tide fans, as he will
make his 16th start of the year.
So far, Augenstein is 7-5 with a 5.24 ERA
and is coming off an eight-inning outing
against Tennessee in which he allowed just
two runs to earn the win.
"We're going to need an outstanding pitch-

ing performance," McMahon said. "It's go-
ing to be a wonderful opportunity for Bryan
Augenstein."
If UF can win today, the team will face a
very difficult matchup against Arkansas or
South Carolina against whom the Gators are
a combined 1-6 this season.
Even with a win Friday, UF has no guaran-
tee of actually making the NCAA Tournament,
and series losses to Virginia Military Institute
and Kent State, combined with midweek
defeats against Stetson and Central Florida,
certainly weaken their case.
All of that means nothing if the Gators can't
topple the Crimson Tide today, something
they remain positive they can do.
"Alabama is a great team. They're in the
SEC, and they made it to the tournament
- everybody here is a great team," LaPorta
said. "I feel confident in our ballclub more
than anything."




EThe UF softball team will face off
with Texas A&M this weekend in its
first Super Regional appearance in
school history. Check out Tuesday's Al-

This year, the message may hit closer to home for some UF students. UF engineering senior Mario Pino was killed in a car crash last weekend when he was ejected from the vehicle he was driving. He was not wearing a seat belt, according to the Florida Highway Public Patrol. Safety During the campaign, anyone caught not wearing a seat belt will be given a ticket, said FHP spokesman Lt. Mike Burroughs. "It's a simple thing to do," said UP anthropology senior George Birbaum, a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon with Pino, about wearing seat belts. "It takes two seconds, and it could save your life." During last year's Memorial Day weekend, 54 total deaths in 51 separate crashes were reported, said PHIP's statewide chief of public affairs Maj. Ernie Duarte. About 60 percent of those killed were not wearing their seat belts. "We have a lot more crashes," Duarte said. "That means more injuries and death."

The week of Memorial Day is the busiest week of the year for Ginnie Springs, said Connie LoRe, a manager at the springs, and so far there hasn't been a lull in guests due to high gas prices. "We haven't seen any decrease," LoRe said. "If someone is living in Tampa and thinking about driving up to Tennessee, with the high gas prices, they might want to stay in-state. It might work to the benefit of Florida," she said. Additionally, she said she doesn't think the smoke will be a problem now that it is clearing. "It's improved from what it was a week ago," she said. "Depending on Mother Nature, God and the way the wind blows, hopefully we won't be subjected too much." Ginnie Springs is a vacation spot both for local residents and for guests coming from out of town. Its 200-plus acres offer swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, camping, tubing, canoeing and picnicking. "Ginnie Springs is pretty much world-renowned," LoRe said.

THURSDAY, MAY 24, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 3 Gatorade-like drink designed for active animals By DREW HARWELL and AMRITHA ALLADI Alligator Staff Writers The average pets spend their days running around their homes, jumping onto couches and chasing toys. Why, then, are they always given just plain water? A local UF-partnered research laboratory, the Gainesville Technology Enterprise Center, has the answer. Along with BioGalaxy Inc., the center recently released "Animactive," a drink designed to rehydrate and rejuvenate the world's forgotten athletes -pets. Nicknamed "Gatorade for animals," the drink is being marketed for every animal from racehorses to livestock and from K-9 units to domesticated pets, according to a Opie the dog drinks Animactive, a new "animal hydrating beverage" that was developed at UF from the same base ingredients as Gatorade. press release. Sold for $2.49 a bottle at Gainesville's Earth Pets Natural Pet Market, 500 NW 60th St., Animactive is available in four flavors: natural, filet mignon, chicken kiev and ahi tuna, said Kharl Cheng, chief operating officer at BioGalaxy. The drink comes in 16-ounce bottles, complete with supplement facts, directions and a catchy slogan: "When Water Just Won't Do." According to the supplement facts, the -serving size -about half the bottle -provides animals with five calories and 100 percent of their daily suggested Vitamin C. Directions on the bottle advise humans or literate pets to serve animals the water three times a day, or more often when the temperature reaches extreme levels. Based on research by J. Robert Cade, R. Malcolm Privette and Melvin J. Fregly, the early inventors of UF's successful Gatorade sports drink, the new drink provides fluids and vitamins B, B6, B12, D and A, Cheng said. Its formula not only replenishes the animal with fluids, he added, but also effectively maintains good blood volume levels and healthy bone density. Animactive was produced in response to the countless animal deaths that followed the Hurricane Katrina catastrophe, said Marvin Heuer, BioGalaxy's chief executive officer. Anirmactive is exactly what animal shelter, police K-9 units, equine units and emergency animal rescue services need, he added. "We all watched many news stories about abandoned and injured animals following the devastation in New Orleans," Heuer said. "We wish Animactive had been ready then." "We're in the midst of producing concentrate to pour into the troughs of larger animals." Kharl Cheng BioGalaxy chief operating officer Though the 16-ounce bottles of Animactive were released in January, modifications to suit larger animals are underway, Cheng said. "We're in the midst of producing concentrate to pour into the troughs of larger animals," Cheng said. "We just need to figure out how much water to add." Animactive lists five separate patents on the bottle's label, adding that the project is licensed by UF. The Gainesville Technology Enterprise Center provides tools and support for flourishing ideas, research and business models.

4, ALLIGATOR N THURSDAY, MAY 24, 2007 STUDENT GOVERNMENT Moseley on Board of Govs. By KIM WILMATH Alligator Writer kwilmath@alligator.org UF Student Government officials used student money to travel to Fort Myers on May 17-18 to attend a leadership conference for SG leaders from public universities around the state. The trip cost more than $600 and was paid for with students' Activity & Service Fee, according to SG records. Students pay about $9 toward the A&S Fee per semester, said Student Body President Ryan Moseley. "We're like every academic organization," Moseley said. "We have a travel budget." Moseley said the Florida Student Association is one of the lines of the budget that calls for "big chunks of change." Moseley was elected chairman of the association at this past conference. As chairman of FSA, Moseley will have a seat on the Board of Governors, which controls all policymaking for state universities, said David Drescher, director of external affairs -the position formerly known as lobby coordinator. FSA meets several times a year to discuss issues concerning students within the State University System. Moseley The meetings allow all SG organizations to channel their efforts toward the same goals, Drescher said. "It's about all the students coming together on the same page," he said. SG cuts banquet funds By DEVIN CULCLASURE Alligator Writer UF Student Government officials will have to leave their formal wear at home for future SG banquets, according to one SG executive. The Cabinet director in charge of banquet planning has been removed, said Student Body Vice President Vanessa Goodwin. She added that she also plans to scale back the banquet's funds. The move to nix the position was made during a meeting of top SG executives to make Cabinet more efficient, Goodwin said. While records show $4,200 of student money is budgeted for awards, most of it has typically gone toward the banquet. At the spring banquet, SG officials dropped $3,885 on the event, including plaques and other awards. But Goodwin said her chief of staff would take over the On planning, which will be Campus more low-key in the future, such as a picnic at Lake Wauburg. SG officials will be inducted during a Senate meeting, rather than at the event, Goodwin said. Leftover money will go toward student programs, she added. "We want to use students' dollars in the best way for students," she said.

U THE SPUDS ARE GROWN WITHOUT THE USE OF DYES. By SARAH ZARATE Alligator Contributing Writer Students were surprised to see an odd patriotic display on the floor of the Reitz Union Colonnade on Wednesday -a stack of red, white and blue potatoes. "Are you interested in buying potatoes?" asked Sherry Kao, a horticultural sciences graduate student at UF who helped with the sale. Kao is a member of the Horticultural Sciences Graduate Club at UF, whose mission was to sell the Memorial Day-themed potatoes as a fundraiser. Kao said the UF Research and Education Center in Hastings, Fla., donated the colorful spuds. The red and blue potatoes are naturally occurring versions of the more familiar white potatoes, so no dyes were used, she explained. The money raised will support students in the club at conferences and help cover their travel expenses. "Sometimes, we don't get covered by our advisers," Kao explained. By the end of the day, the club had already raised about $200, Kao said. The sale will continue today and Friday from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Fifield Hall. Because blue potatoes are not often seen in supermarkets, they were the most popular. "They're just funky something special," Kao said.

Glenda Frederick, Student Senate secretary, said that in her 13 years at UF, no senators have ever been expelled for failing to meet these requirements. Johns said the recommendations for expulsion were based on senators' efforts to meet their probation requirements and the number of Student tines they have been on probation. "Senators can't get elected and never talk to those who put them in office," Johns said in an interview Wednesday. "My committee made the requirements very clear, and 'I didn't know' is not an acceptable excuse this summer" On Wednesday, Johns said she and her committee were considering clarifying and updating Senate statutes this summer. Johns said she believes her committee acted correctly and would continue to show "zero tolerance." "Statutes are laws, and laws will be followed," she said. visitors from across country world because it's a dive destination as well as a campground, so people in every country that are divers are aware of Ginnie Springs." However, the fact that its attractions are all outdoors may still deter some people from coming. i "I think its a concern of people," LoRe said. According to the WCJB news station Web site, the nearby fires are about 90 percent contained. A change in wind direction could cause the smoke to blow south. Gainesville resident Michelle Elliott, 25, plans to host her family from South. Florida for Memorial Day weekend. She plans to take them to Ginnie Springs, but she said she might reconsider, depending on the conditions. "If it's smoky on the day we plan to go to the springs, we won't go," Elliott said. "It is a threehour drive for my family, so not only will it be a huge disappointment, it will be a huge waste of expensive gas." Elliott said her family has wanted to visit the springs since she moved here a year and a half ago. "My family has wanted to do this for a long time, so I hope we won't be let down," she said.

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 24, 2007 Editorial Hopefully you spent more time this week soaking up the sun and enjoying the beautiful weather than you did in the classroom. The warm days and the cool nights just scream for a trip to the great outdoors -a camping weekend, a trip to one of the many local springs or just a day at the beach. Seriously, enjoy it before it gets too hot. So pack your overnight bag with a swimsuit, some sunscreen and the ingredients for s'mores as you read this week's all-nature edition of Darts & Laurels First up, a what-better-way-to-spend-a-sunny-weekendthan-at-the-field LAUREL to the women's softball team, which swept the regional tournament last weekend by pummeling Texas and Georgia Tech. The women will play Texas A&M this weekend at the NCAA Super Regional -UF's first. If you aren't too busy convening with nature, try to catch the games on ESPN. Up next, a maybe-some-people-should-spend-more-timeindoors DART to some student senators who have been slacking in their duties. Fourteen senators are in trouble with the Rules and Ethics Committee for failing to carry out their responsibilities. The Senate will vote Tuesday to determine if the senators should be expelled or expunged. But a two-thirds majority vote would be required to kick these lame ducks out of office, so it wouldn't surprise us to see them all stay. But we do appreciate that Senate is taking this seriously -and who knows? Maybe the senators will surprise us next week Here'samaybe-these-people-have-spent-a-little-too-muchtime-in-the-sun DART for the lawmakers behind the budget cuts Gainesville faces thanks to proposed property tax reform. Losing some of Gainesville Fire Rescue's emergency medical services and almost 50 Gainesville Police Department employees would probably make Gainesville a less safe place. Reducing after-school programs and some youth. sports would mean more kids with free time, sitting around bored -and potentially getting into trouble. And never mind the homeless -no, literally. The proposed budget cuts would eliminate the city's funding of the Gainesville Office of Homelessness and eliminate or reduce funding for the onestop homeless center. But we do have an every-cloud-has-its-silver-lining LAUREL for the cuts that trim the fat. Budget cuts often help -albeit sometimes painfully -organizations learn how to be more efficient. Of course, we can't help but think this is the case for programs like GPD's Party Patrol, which may receive the boot. How efficient is it for cops to scan the monitors and only respond to calls of loud parties, except, of course, in the case of an emergency? We give a may-lightming-smite-you DART to the thieves stealing money from The Gainesville Sun newspaper racks.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinions so ad U6 "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Contentr Available from Commercial News Providers" Sa Column New library food policy bad for books he most exciting thing to happen on campus in the last two weeks has been the new food rules at Library West. If you haven't heard, Library West is the guinea pig for a pilot project that replaces the old "covered drinks" policy with a more open policy that permits snacks. Since Library West re-opened last fall, the library has become the new hang-out spot. for students. It has exceeded expectations in terms of patron capacity, frequently filling all 110 computer workstations and therefore attracting complaints from the more studious students. Working as a library student assistant during the fall and spring semesters at the circulation desk, I tended to forget I was working in a library. When I learned of the new policy, I was conflicted. On the one hand, I wouldn't have to deal with students giving me dirty looks and attitude as I asked them to put their half-eaten muffins away. I would no longer receive obscene remarks in the morning from disgruntled early risers who happened to carelessly parade their food past the desk. Confrontation has never been my forte, and I am glad I won't have to deal with it anymore. On the other hand, I now have to handle complaints regarding rotting food in group study room trash cans, food-stained books and countless coffee spills. Foodrelated horror stories have become legends within the library staff -we've even had to turn away food deliverers. But even if I hadn't experienced this, I would still disagree with the new policy. The library has become the new hangout for students. At first, this appears to reflect positive growth in the intellectual and academic productivity of UF's students. If thousands of students using the A library each day, one may assume .they are taking advantage of the library's facilities and therefore aelanng. Dorothy Atkins Perhaps this would hold true letters@alligator.org in an ideal environment, but unfortunately, I don't see how you can work with the guy next to you obnoxiously munching on a bag of chips. One professor said the library was becoming more like an entertainment center. He thought that a proper library should create an oppressive environment, which would prevent noise and distraction. Although I think his idea of a library is a bit medieval, he has a point. The other day, a graduate student approached the circulation desk, genuinely concerned about this new policy. She asked for my opinion, she asked for my supervisor's opinion, and then she stared at the survey, considering the situation. After what appeared to be a grueling few minutes, she finally shook her head and filled out the form. Immediately afterward, two undergraduate students approached, and they too saw the survey. "Awesome!" said one girl. "That's so exciting!" said the other. They left without filling out a survey, and I recognized one of them as a food-bearing patron from weeks ago. I realized, despite any institutional policy decided by the powers that be, that as -long as students treat the library as a hangout spot, they will continue to eat -regardless of policy.

THURSDAY, MAY 24, 2007 N ALLIGATOR, 7 Guest column Alligator edito Im always surprised whenthe Alligator discourages students from participating in Student Government. In Tuesday's newspaper, an editorial and an article accused SQ of "cronyism," perpetuating the myth that you can only get into SG if you have Greek letters on your resume. Non-Greek students, such as Jordan McBee, the current Cabinet Secretary of Transportation, are just as capable and qualified to hold SG positions. The people who earned their positions as agency heads turned in competitive applications that clearly demonstrated their abilities. They can't be blamed, though, if their competitive applications have no others to compete with. The Alligator told students that if they are not Greek, SG won't accept them -and then it's surprised when the rial unfairly accuses SG of 'cronyism' Ryan Day Speaking Out applicant pools for positions include a high number of fraternity and sorority members? The Alligator continues to publish articles that desperately try to find fault with SG policy, when much of the responsibility for low application turnout is theirs. While it wasn't a reasonable cost to purchase advertising in the Alligator to announce application deadlines, the positions were announced in Facebook, Campus Talk, Reitz Union Food Court and InSite ads. Fliers were distributed to all dorms. The marquees on the electronic billboards on 34th Street and on University Avenue provided information. We sent e-mails to the Honors listserv, the Student Government listserv, Gator Times and all student organization presidents and treasurers who should have forwarded the message to their members. Yet the Alligator continues to say SG is an exclusive, insulated establishment that shuns outsiders. When the Alligator wholeheartedly endorsed this administration in the spring elections, it wrote that "SG has a huge responsibility to the students it represents -experience and knowledge are necessary." Studenrt-Body President Ryan Moseley, Vice President Vanessa Goodwin and Treasurer E.J. Walicki agree, and they will continue to search for the most competitive applicants to achieve the goals they set out to accomplish last spring. A number of positions are still available; including some that the 'Alligator would classify as promised, such as the one for Museum Nights director. Other available positions include Disability Affairs director, supervisor of elections and Chomp the Vote executive director, to name a few. If you want to get involved, please fill out an application. They are due by June 1 at 4 p.m. and can be found at www.sg.ufl.edu. External Affairs is also looking for directors -the applications for those positions are due June 8 at 5 p.m. and are also available online. Students don't need prior experience in the organization to be just as qualified as other applicants, and everyone interested will be equally considered. SG will do everything it can to fight any attempts to dissuade or discourage students from getting involved -and the Alligator should, as well. Ryan Day is the cabinet secretary of sponsorships.

8, ALLIGATOR .THURSDAY, MAY 24, 2007 Gainesville latest stop on 800-mile cycling fundraiser E THE CYCLISTS HOPE TO RAISE $75,000. By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer When people want to grab life by the handlebars, they usually take a quick bicycle ride around the block. But for the cyclists of Gear Up Florida, an 800-mile-long cycling event, the two-week trip from Miami to Tallahassee seems more appealing. An all-volunteer team of 29 cyclists and eight crewmembers were escorted by the Alachua County Sheriff's Office into town Wednesday morning. The group, which is traveling across the state in hopes of raising more than $75,000 for people with disabilities, left Miami on May 13 and expects to arrive in Tallahassee by May 26. "Gainesville is one of the 13 cities they make a stop in," said Abby Symonds, a spokeswoman for Push America, which has coordinated Gear Up Florida since 1988. Push America is made up of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity members who promote enhancing the lives of people with disabilities. "People need to show empathy instead of sympathy," said Jon Wilson, the project manager of Gear Up Florida. "We always try to put the person before the disability. Sympathy is giving your pity Empathy is actually understanding what it is like." Once in Gainesville, the Gear Up Florida team arrived at the Arc of Alachua County, a nonprofit organization that encourages independence in the developmentally disabled, at about 11 a.m. "There was a big arrival here and a big crowd from the Arc," said Gear Up Florida sponsor John Spence. "It's a really fun and happy day for the folks here." The cyclists average 75 miles a day on their bikes. "After cycling, they do friendship visits," Wilson said. "This can range from dances to dinners. We go to different arts and community centers." The Gear Up Florida team finished its day in Gainesville with a dance at Tacachale, a community for the developmentally disabled at .1621 NE Waldo Rd. They spent the night in the auditorium. Other services Gear Up Florida provides to visited cities are Kids on the Block puppet shows, which teach children about disabilities, and empathy dinners. "What we do for empathy dinners is give people a disability while they're eating," Wilson said. "We blindfold them, tape their fingers together. We ask them how it felt." Each Gear Up Florida cyclist has to raise a minimum of $2,000 to be considered a team member. Team members realize the trip can be a dangerous and draining experience. "They actually had a couple of wrecks," Spence said. "One of the guys had to stay in North Florida to make sure he didn't have a concussion." Robert Czajak, a senior at the State University of New York in Brockport, has been a cyclist in Gear Up Florida for two years. "We have to push ourselves on the bike every day. We have times we need to make," Czajak said. "We don't necessarily get tons of sleep."

The group is cycling from Miami to Tallahassee and back to raise money for disabled people. UF RESEARCH UF graduate s4.1tudents, faculty camp out with elEphaon-ts By KIM WILMATH Alligator Writer kwilmath@alligator.org A group of UF students are spending their summer following herds of elephants. Nine UF graduate students traveled to Africa May 15 with eight faculty members to spend 11 weeks studying growing elephant populations. They will spend their time in the Caprivi region of Namibia and the Chobe area of Botswana, according to a prss release from the department of geography. In these regions, 40 percent of the world's elephants strip the land of vegetation. Each of the almost 150,000 giant animals eats about 400 pounds of grasses, leaves, bark and mots daily. But that's not the only problem. According to the release, the elephant population doubles every 13 years. Also, because elephants have no concept of "There's camping, and then there's camping in the bush in Africa." Jane Southworth UF associate professor of geography human-invented national boundaries, they tend to trample farmers' crops, said Jane Southworth, an associate professor of geography at UE Despite the problems, elephants are critical to the economic development of the region because they draw tourists, she said. Eight students from countries in southern Africa will join the UF group, along with other experts from .Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia. The group will study local communities and their natural resources, land use and climate effects, according to the release. Southworth said Brian Child, an associate geography professor at UF, came up with the idea of helping the communities three years ago. She said Child is training the locals in the regions to solve conflicts and bring more of the money from elephant tourism to their smaller communities rather than the country's economy. Child could not be reached by press time because he is in Africa. Southworth said the trip cost more than $100,000. Since the Northern and Southem hemispheres have opposite seasons, participants willbe experiencing southern Africa's winter season, according to a press release. Because of the high prices of hotel rooms, the group will brave the winter in tents. "There's camping, and then there's camping in the bush in Africa," Southworth said. "You're living with nature. You're driving through a safari everywhere you go." Young drivers concern troopers "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" SEAT BELTS, from page 1 This year the program, sponsored by the Florida Department. of Transportation, is putting an extra effort into getting the message out with print, radio and TV commercials. "If you dont keep up a constant pressure through public education, you'll lose the emphasis seat belts carry," Burroughs said. The Lake City FHP headquarters, which oversees Alachua County, will be closed for the weekend so 12 additional officers can be out on patrol, Burroughs said. "We are asking people to realize how important it is to wear their seat belts," Duarte said. Everybody in the car should work together to ensure that everyone gets to the destination safely, he added. "We see cars packed with kids having a good time and the driver is distracted," Duarte said. "You have to allow the driver to drive." He said FHP is concerned about people ages 16 and 25 because most deaths occur within that age group. "Even with higher gas prices, and even with the smoke conditions and wildfires, we know we're still going to see an increased amount of traffic this weekend," Burroughs said. He added that the most common excuse people give for not wearing a seat belt is that it would wrinkle their clothes. He's also heard people say that it causes them to feel claustrophobic.

New hookah lounge smells sweet KRISTEN HANNA 0 AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER It is said to be a custom akin to sitting around and drinldng beer with friends, but this tradition has an age minimum of only 18. While its origins are Middle Eastern, smoking flavored tobacco out of a hookah, a multi-stemmed water pipe, can be its own social experience. This week marks the Hookah Hutt Caff's tenth week of operation, and the lounge offers a different experience than the long-standing Farah's on the Avenue. "I like it here because there's no alcohol," said Eisa al Nashmi, a UF graduate student from Kuwait. "This is more calm, and it's specific to hookah." A friend of his, Muhammad al Matar, who is also from Kuwait, has smoked hookah since he was 18.= "Back home it's a tradition in culture," al Matar said. The friends differ in their opinion of whether hookah is addictive, but they do agree on one aspect of hookah: its smell. "It's definitely not like a cigarette," said al Matar, who smokes cigarettes as well as hookah. "If someone smokes a cigarette, you don't want to be neas them," al Nashmi said. "But a hookah is not that bad." Customers can rent a private party room in the back of th e any night of the week, or can watch a belly dancer in the front on the last Friday and Saturday of every month. With an assortment of beaded, tasseled and metallic threaded cushions and upholstery, shaded windows and dangling chandeliers, the Hookah Hutt Caf6's interior is a mixture of Middle Eastern and modem influences. The cafe serves teas, coffees, juices and energy drinks, along with various pastries, including baklava and confections called Turkish Delights. Hookah Hutt Cafe is also a spot to find imported milk chocolate bars called "Kinder chocolate." "It's really popular back home," al Nashmi said of the chocolates. "I've been here for like three years, [and] this is the first time I've seen Kinder chocolate," al Matar said. When asked about the scarce availability of Kinder, al Nashmi jokingly suggested that they were kept out of the country because they would no doubt monopolize the chocolate industry. Memorial Day was originally a day devoted to paying tribute to soldiers who died during the Civil War by decorating their gravestones. It was originally observed on May 30, 1868. Today, Memorial Day is celebrated at Arlington National Cemetery with a ceremony, which will air live on PBS. This year, the program will put special emphasis on Section 60 of the shrine, the section for soldiers who lost their lives fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. Traditionally, a commemorative wreath is lain beside the Tomb of the Uinknown Soldier. Many families use the three-day weekend to have a barbecue, and here in Gainesville, they go to the springs. "Memorial Day is a huge holiday f or us," said Kathy Francis, manager of Ginnie Springs. "It is like the day after Thanksgiving here." Francis reported that visitors were already setting up shop for the holiday a week early. "People get cabin fever around this time, and with school ending soon and marking the beginning of summer, we get a big turnout for Memorial Day," Francis said. --Ashley weffman, Aenue Contributing Writesr Rachel Greenfield / Aillgator staff $' Bud Light Pitchers $4 Jager Bombs $4 Long Islands PUBLISHED: AUG. 15, 2007 DEADLINE: July 25, 2007 Additional Discounts: 10%.

STEPHANIE GRANADA 0 AVENUE WRITER -.Bands flock for fame downtown Orlando was a victim of e glamorous music industry this weekend as -thousands of people from around the country swarmed Orange Avenue during the sixth annual Florida Music Festival & Conference. Some were there to listen to music, others to share their own. Record label representatives searched for their next big money-maker while teenage girls stood behind stages, hoping to catch the attention of a sweaty musician. The festival featured live music, an independent film competition, rock-inspired art and a conference with panelists from various record companies. The conference, which took place Friday and Saturday afternoon, was held on the second floor of the Marriott hotel -it was overtaken by what the concierge described as a "bunch of rockers." The forums were an outlet for Artist and Repertoire representatives, as musicians turned to these music scouts for guidance. Guestpanelists from major record labels, including Atlantic Records, Virgin Records and Epic Records spoke about their experience in the music industry and offered advice to prospectives. Musicians showed off their talents in the Guitar Hero area, tables featured fliers and CDs, and bands could be seen huddled together, plotting ways to get demos into the right hands. Meanwhile, A&R representatives attentively listened to the lines of hopefuls. From Thursday to Sunday, during the concert portion of the festival, 250 unsigned bands took center stage and had the opportunity to perform for crowds of all sizes. Alocal Gainesville band, Ten 13 Concept, used the opportunity to debut their new self-titled E.P. Friday night. Heads in the audience nodded to the beat as the band delivered the energetic performance it is known for. Proving that the guys like to mix things up, lead singer Joe Loffredo broke out into the band's rendition of "Ridin" and "Dirt Off Your Shoulders" mid-set. "Even if you don't like what we were doing before, you know that something is coming up that you will like," Loffredo said. Like many of the bands showcasing at Jazek Creacy / Alligator Thousands enjoyed live shows at 15 different venues in Orlando lost weekend at the Florida Music Festival and Conference. the festival, Ten 13 Concept was there to make connections and learn as much as they could from the interactive panels. "You have to just step up to the plate and be very business savvy," Loffredo said. Between their two E.Ps, one full-length album and a DVD, the band has sold approximately 1,900 copies independently -it has toured twice and collaborated on two Hurricane Katrina relief CDs. "At this point, we are at the stage where' we have turned down deals," Loffredo said. "We have done everything ourselves: marketing, promotion, production." An entrepreneurial spiritt is taking lead in the music industry today -instead of turning. to big record labels to do all the promotions and distributions, with the use of the Internet, artists are doing it themselves. Independent labels such as Fueled by Ramen and Saddle Creek Records have demonstrated that artists can benefit more from private distribution. John Janick, a UF graduate and co-founder of Fueled by Ramen Records was the guest speaker of "A Conversation with John Janick" Saturday afternoon. "This man is the hottest man in the industry right now," said Steve Robertson, Vice President of A&R for Atlantic Records. People turn to independent labels as a source for other artists signed under the same company, Janick and Robertson said. Independent labels often serve as middlemen to get their artists on major labels, while still retaining control of the band. "We have to be more artist-friendly," said Ken Blaustein, A&R representative for Virgin Records. "The business is much more kinder and gentler than it was before. Now we are the cheerleaders wearing the skirts and pompoms." Other segments of the conference mentored attendees on booking shows, promoting tours and making films. One underlying theme pervaded the 16 forums: if you want to make it somewhere in the industry, you'll have to create a buzz for yourself.

Following his dream to own a pizza place, Satchel scouted Gainesville for a few years before settling on an obscure location near Waldo Road: 1800 NE 23rd Ave. "It was what I could afford," Satchel said. The first pies were served March 7, 2003. And they became a phenomenon. People come from all over, and at least 40 are waiting to be seated on a Friday night, he said. "It's the quality and taste of pizza that makes us different," Safchel said. "There's a couple of secret ingredients in the dough, and there's a couple of secret ingredients in the sauce." But you can't find Satchel's secret at the grocery store. The real "secret" ingredient is love -it's even printed on the list of ingredients on the salad dressing bottles for sale in the restaurant. "We're not trying to compete with Domino's," Satchel said. And it doesn't stop with the taste -dining out there is always an experience. The junk museum features a gift shop and lounge. Local bands play live music in the lounge every night, so customers can sit down, get a drink from the bar, relax and listen to the music while they wait for a table, Satchel said. Satchel keeps his 1965' Ford Falcon parked in the garden area of his pizza place. He had lived and worked out of the van, but after the restaurant opened, he said he realized the van was worth more as a table than a mode of transportation. "When you put a van out front and have a junk museum, anything goes." Satchel's Pizza is open from Tuesday to Saturday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Two days off per week keeps Satchel and his employees from getting "bumt out," he said. 7

Shrek sinks in third seq ual I went in with very high expectations for "Shrek the Third," and I was seriously disappointed. I think the full title should be "Shrek the Third Worst Film in the Series," or "Shrek the Third Tme is Not the Charm." I loved the previous two and was excited about this film for a while. One would think it is a trivial matter to produce these comic story lines, but as "Spider-Man 3" has shown us, a winning formula -if forced -can be derisive. The first two movies were predicated on parody and a sense of undeniable silliness, but "Shrek the Third" attempts to be original, takes itself seriously and desperately tries to cling to what made it successful in the past. It was forced. I enjoy self-reference in a movie (Mel' Brooks saying "It's good to be the king" is a prime example), but there is a limit. It was also distressing when jokes fell flat. All the high school scenes were forced and awkward. The only part of the movie that did not reek of rot was the introduction of Merlin, with Eric Idle playing the voice. The character single-handedly carried the movie out of the realm of the abysmal with his portrayal as an overstressed crackpot. It had the warmth of the first two movies. The movie's score was particularly MARK KEREMEDJIEV troubling, as the series is known for its chairing incorporation of music. Why did "Live and Let Die" play at a funeral scene? I'm at a loss. Or how about Fergie's needless cover of "Barracuda?" It sounds like the original song. I do feel compelled, however, to nod toward the improved graphics. Common Gateway Interface has come a long way from the first film, but while the world they created was visually stunning, it was also distracting -I was staring at the characters' hair more often then their faces. Halfway through the movie's 92-minute runtime, I wanted it to end, yet found myself disappointed that there were so many loose ends to tie up. I would have been pleased if Merlin accidentally blew up the whole world in a puff of pink smoke. 1/ Date without a dent Want to apply for the next season of The Pussycat Dolls Present?

You decide. Spring has sprung with romance in the air. With flowers blooming and love bugs spooning, it's hard to fight flying sparks. Whether you're playing the field or settling down, your budget probably needs some new cheap date ideas. Take a chance: Flaunt your culinary finesse by opting for a homemade feast instead of restaurant cuisine. Buying and cooking your own food is a lot cheaper than going out and having it prepared. If the skies are clear, try a picnic. If you're feeling adventurous, take a trip to Lake Wauburg. Admission and rentals are free with a valid Gator 1 Card. From paddleboats to water skis, exercise can be fun. Or, you can slow it down with a romantic paddle around the lake by canoe. And don't forget to bring lunch. Paynes Prairie offers nature trails for biking and hiking. It's great for exercise or just a scenic escapade. If you're a dog lover, check out the Alachua County Humane Society, which allows volunteers to foster dogs for a day at a local dog park MEGAN HERON -for free. You'll fill out an application and complete a brief orientation, then you can spend the day outside, connecting with your love and a four-legged friend. If you'd like to accent your creative side, participate in a ceramics session. Do Art, a pottery studio at 2441 NW 43rd St. #18, offers $9 sessions to create a masterpiece. You can also make mosaics ranging from picture frames to clocks. Most of the work is done for you, so let the creative juices flow. For something more traditional, opt for a matinee movie. They are less crowded, nearly half the cost of night shows and perfect for a rainy day. For something a little more social, spend an evening at a hookah lounge. Farah's on the Avenue offers a smoke for $5 per person, and Hookah Hutt Caf6 charges $10 per hookah. Whether it's smoking, kayaking or bringing food to the park, you don't have to spend a fortune to make your loved one feel special.

Always fly to concerts with a willing wing I've recently become a fan of the Gainesville music scene -those places downtown that are always advertising drink specials and local bands. A buddy of mine once dated a girl now the bartender at one of these places -so he had frequented the concert circuit for a few months. This particular night, some band he followed was playing, and he dragged my roommates and me to check it out. To my surprise, the place was stacked with eligible talent and was perfectly set up for meeting new dating material. I watched my roommate as he ran into girl after girl whom he had met at earlier concerts. I realized this was a hugely untapped resource that had gone undiscovered during my first few years at UP. We planted ourselves at a table and started scanning the room for potential "beautiful babies," as he refers to them. The term is not gender specific and dered converAs the night progressed and the place can be used either way. began to fill up a little bit, a group of The name derives from the explosive girls spotted our table, which had three ability of this individual to deter anyextra chairs. one who would be attempting to chat The group consisted of a blonde with her friends (she accomplishes this (along with her fake through her far-tootwins) and a bru7% /. tu/pYit, 4W&pkW/t obvious discontent nette who had the 0 with being dubbed whole trendy emothe third wheel). band-groupie thing going for her. These two were tnt ft p&b1 g d ni-il welcome additions to the table. The problem was the third leg of this female tripod: the grenade. Now, this is a termmy roommates gnd I use to describe the friend of the hot girls who was not blessed with the same physique as her head-turning counterparts. For many groups of guys, this third could present a sation for his friends.

With the potential grenade blast diffused, all parties involved were happily paired off and the night went beautifully. Local bands could be proud of the challenge. role they played in joining the student But we had our resident grenade-jumper. With him' around, there is never a question of "Who's jumping on the grenade?" It is the job of the wingman to sacrifice himself and jump on the grenade so as to diffuse the blast and allow unhinbody, sad emo girls could see there was happiness for them, too, and siliconeclad blondes could rest easy, knowing Dr. 90210 was worth every penny.

22, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, MAY 24,2007 ROUNDUP LaPorta receives SEC Player of the Year honors STAFF REPORT Senior first baseman Matt LaPorta and a handful of his teammates were honored by Southeastern Conference coaches Tuesday. For the second time in three years, LaPorta was named SEC Player of the Year and a member of the All-SEC first team. ,;'nior outfielder Brian Leclerc joined the slugger on the first team while outfielders Matt den Dekker and Jonathan Pigott and shortstop Cole Figueroa were named to the All-Freshman team. UF's three selections to the freshman squad tied Mississippi for most in the conference. LaPorta was named SEC Player of the Year in 2005 as well. He is the first player to receive the award twice and remains UF's first-ever recipient. In 2005, the junior finished with an NCAA-best 26 home runs. His efforts helped the Gators to the final round of the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. After an injury-plagued 2006 season, LaPorta returned for a final year, and while UF's success has not mirrored that of 2005, the first baseman's has. He entered the SEC Tournament leading the conference with a batting average of .419 with an on-base percentage of .591. He has notched 50 RBI and 19 home runs. LaPorta has struggled recently, however, going 1-for-8 at the plate in his last four ballgames. Opposing teams have refused to pitch to LaPorta, walking him 12 times in that span. LEVINE HONORED: All season long, UF coach Andy Jackson knew freshman Jesse Levine was one of the best players he'd ever coached. Everyone else is beginning to notice as well. "It's a big honor, but it's an honor ,(Levine) deserves." Andy Jackson UF coach Levine, -ranked No. 3 in singles, was named the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's National Rookie Player of the Year on Tuesday. "It's a big honor, but it's an honor (Levine) deserves," Jackson said. As play began Wednesday in the NCAA Singles Championship, Levine and the other four UF entries all advanced to today's second-round action in Athens, Ga. Jackson said third-seeded Levine looked a little tight Wednesday but played well enough to defeat Virginia's Treat Huey 6-3, 6-4. While Levine was busy winning awards, freshman Megan Alexander was busy defeating award winners. No. 39 Alexander defeated North Carolina's Jenna Long 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (3) in the biggest UF upset on Wednesday. No. 10 Long was named ITA Senior Player of the Year. Also advancing were freshman Csilla Borsanyi, junior No. 23 Diana Srebrovic and junior No. 21 Greg Ouellette. Levine and Ouellette will also begin doubles competition today as the No. 3 seed in the 32-team tournament. -Phil Kegler Mediterranean &American Cuisine Gainesville's Premiere Hookab Lounge 1120 W University Avenue 352-378-5179 71www.farahsontheavenue.com HEALTH INSURANCE "Students need Health Insurance.

Sports THURSDAY, MAY 24, 2007 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Early UF lead negated by errors in extra-inning loss By ALEX WEINTRAUB Alligator Writer aweintraub@aligator.org HOOVER, Ala. -It might not be the Red Sox and Yankees, but UF and South Carolina have made a habit of turning their meetings into nail-biters. Their last three showdowns have been decided in the ninth inning or later, and Wednesday was no exception. In both dubs' first match of the 2007 Southeastern Conference Tournament, the Gamecocks (40-17, 18-13 SEC) bested the Gators (28-29, 15-16 SEC) in 12 innings by a score of 4-3. "It's a tough loss for our ballclub," UF coach Pat McMahon UF senior relief pitcher David Hurst reacts after South Carolina's Harley Lail hit a walk-off single in the 12th inning of the Gators' 4-3 loss to the Gamecocks on Wednesday. said. "You have to give South Carolina an awful lot of credit. They just played their hearts out, and that's what tournament time is all about." The Gators played the Gamecocks tough but were unable to hold on to an early 3-0 lead after costly mistakes in the infield. USC scored all of its runs in innings where the leadoff hitter reached base on an error. None of the squad's runs were earned. In the bottom of the 12th inning, Gamecocks first baseman Justin Smoak hit a sharp grounder that shortstop Cole Figueroa couldn't field. Smoak would end up on third after a balk and a sacrifice bunt. After two intentional walks, outfielder Harley Lail drove a single up the middle to win the game for USC. "We did our best," first baseman Matt LaPorta said. "We just didn't come through today." UF struck first in the second inning after Gamecocks ace Harris Honeycutt walked the bases loaded and catcher Cody Neer hit a sacrifice fly to score outfielder Brian Leclerc from third. The Gators would add two more in the third inning. Figueroa led off the frame with a double, and second baseman Avery Barnes drove him in with a single in the next at-bat. Designated hitter Austin Pride would drive in Barnes with a single later in the inning. But the Gators' hitters went cold for the rest of the game. In the remaining nine innings, UF would only be able to muster two more hits against Honeytatt and the USC bullpen. "He sinks down a little bit right before he pitches," LaPorta said. "That was throwing my timing off, and I'm sure it was throwing the other hitters off too." Freshman pitcher Kyle Mullaney would hold USC in check until the sixth inning, when the Gamecocks were able to capitalize on an error and a wild pitch to score twice. The Gators had a shot to add some runs in their next at-bat, but after loading the bases with one out, they were unable to convert. "The seventh inning was key," Baseball McMahon said. "We had two opportunities to push that lead up some, and we didn't come through." USC would take advantage of another UF error in the seventh to tie the game on a sacrifice fly. Mullaney threw six innings, allowing 5 hits and 3 runs -none of them earned. "I just tried to keep us in the game," Mullaney said. "Now we just have to come out and try tomorrow." UF will face Alabama nextvThe Crimson Tide lost to Arkansas in the first game of the day. Gators to face Crimson Tide with season on the line A LOSS WOULD BRING THE TEAM'S SEASON TO AN END. By MIKE MCCALL Alligator Staff Writer mmcall@alligator.org HOOVER, Ala. -Thanks to the doubleelimination format of the Southeastern Conference Tournament, the UF baseball team will live to play another day, despite their loss to South Carolina on Wednesday Unfortunately for the Gators, today's 10 a.m. CDT (11 a.m. EDT)matchup with Alabama may be the end of their season, as their hopes for a trip to the NCAA Tournament look bleak. Teams must have a record of at least .500 to qualify for an at-large bid, and at 28-29, UF will need two wins to become eligible. To do that, the Gators would need a win MLB Seattle Tampa Bay NY Mets Atlanta 5 1 3 0 against the Crimson Tide today and a victory Friday against the loser of today's matchup between second-seeded Arkansas and the third-seeded Gamecocks. That feat is certainly a tall order, but as usual, UF isn't looking ahead. "What we really want to do is just go out and play our game," UF first baseman Matt LaPorta said. Today's tilt with Alabama (31-25) presents UF with an excellent chance to get its first win, as the Gators took two of three from the Tide earlier this month in Gainesville. This time, however, the game might as well be in Tuscaloosa, whichis just a 45-minute drive from Regions Park in Hoover. Due to the large expected crowd of crimson-clad supporters, UF is treating the matchup like an away game. "Obviously, playing here in Hoover, there's going to be a large contingency of Alabama U NBA: Cleveland at Detroit TNT, 8 p.m. MLB : Phillies at Marlins" Fox Sports Net, 7 p.m. fans," UF coach Pat McMahon said. "It's a great opportunity for our guys, but it'll definitely be a partisan crowd for Alabama, as it ought to be." "What we really want to do is just go out and play our game." Matt LaPorta UF first baseman The Crimson Tide, who lost to Arkansas on Wednesday, also face elimination. Junior Bryan Augenstein will be charged with quieting the rowdy Tide fans, as he will make his 16th start of the year. So far, Augenstein is 7-5 with a 5.24 ERA and is coming off an eight-inning outing against Tennessee in which he allowed just two runs to earn the win. "We're going to need an outstanding pitchEUF basketball coach Billy Donovan announced the hiring of assistant coach Rob Lanier on Wednesday. Lanier will replace Donnie Jones, who was named the head coach at Marshall last month. ing performance," McMahon said. "It's going to be a wonderful opportunity for Bryan Augenstein." If UF can win today, the team will face a very difficult matchup against Arkansas or South Carolina -against whom the Gators are a combined 1-6 this season. Even with a win Friday, UF has no guarantee of actually making the NCAA Tournament, and series losses to Virginia Military Institute and Kent State, combined with midweek defeats against Stetson and Central Florida, certainly weaken their case. All of that means nothing if the Gators can't topple the Crimson Tide today, something they remain positive they can do. "Alabama is a great team. They're in the SEC, and they made it to the tournament -everybody here is a great team," LaPorta said. "I feel confident in our ballclub more than anything." N The UF softball team will face off with Texas A&M this weekend in its first Super Regional appearance in school history. Check out Tuesday's Alligator for coverage of the series.
