County gears up for hurricane season


* OFFICIALS PREDICT AN ABOVE
AVERAGE SEASON AGAIN.

By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Writer
atan@alligator.org

Alachua County emergency manage-
ment chief David Donnelly has been pre-
paring for June since January.
The hurricane season starts June 1 and


last until Nov. 30.
Donnelly said his department has
helped train several city, county and UF
departments for the season.
The National Oceanic & Atmospheric
Administration predicted on Tuesday a 75
percent chance of an above-average season
for this year. NOAA is expecting 13 to 17
named storms with seven to 10 becoming
hurricanes. Three to five may become ma-
jor hurricanes, according to the NOAA.


"Our preparations are basically the
same every year."
David Donnelly
Alachua County emergency management
chief

Major hurricanes are stronger than a
Category 3 storm, meaning winds will be
above 111 miles per hour.
Donnelly said the above-average pre-


-diction hasn't affected the county's prepa-
rations for hurricane season yet.
"Our preparations are basically the
same every year," he added.
The monthly training usually deals
with how departments can work together
and deal with the problems hurricanes can
present.
Donnelly said all the departments will
be briefed on the hurricane season at the

UPD picking up


abandoned bikes

An abandoned bike sits locked to a rack near the Plaza of the Americas on Wednesday afternoon. Bikes like
this are cited with a yellow notice (pictured) and are then removed and auctioned if not claimed.


By VALERIE JONES
Alligator Contributing Writer

Early Tuesday morning,
University Police Department
Capt. Jeff Holcomb.stalked the UF
campus, armed with bright red
tags and an industrial-strength
stapler.
His mission: to rid bike racks of
abandoned bicycles.
"The main thing is to al-
low more space for bike users,"
Holcomb said. "If you don't have
enough space, people will have to
park farther away or use another
mode of transportation."
The UPD tags old bicycles that
appear to be left behind by their
owners at the end of every semes-
ter. Bikes that are not claimed after
a month are then impounded, and
the bicycles that are still in decent
condition are put up for auction.
There are usually more tagged


bicycles after the spring semester
due to students leaving campus,
Holcomb said while perusing the
bike rack, which held a sparse col-
lection of Magnas and Treks.
"We try only to tag the ones
that look in bad shape," Holcomb
said, "like the ones with missing
seats and rusted chains."
When he finished, Holcomb
had only tagged about six bicycles
on the racks, leaving some ques-
tionable bikes tagless.
"I usually try and give it the
benefit of the doubt," he said.
Owners are given five days to take
off the tag. If the tag is removed,
that means the bicycle is still in
use and it is not impounded.
"If you remove it, we can't
touch it," Holcomb said.
After the five days, employees
from the physical plant and UPD
load the bicycles that have not

Construction to shut down 1-75 exit on Archer Road


The three-month project begins Friday

Traffic on Archer Road may get worse
in the coming months.
The Florida Department of
Transportation will begin renovation of the
Interstate 75 exit on Archer Road Friday,

said project spokesman Chip Skinner.
Construction for the $1 million project is-
expected to last about three months.
Skinner said renovation is starting dur-
ing the summer because there are fewer
students in Gainesville. He said the de-
partment hopes there will be less traffic on
Archer Road.

current lane fits about 12 cars, Skinner
estimated.
Traffic signals and signals for sidewalks
will be replaced, Skinner said.
The new traffic signals will be on an
arm that will stand up better in strong
weather.
The reason for the closure, he added,
is-that too many cars in the turn lane may
interfere with traffic.

Robbery suspect nabbed
A man meeting the descrip-
tion of a man who robbed a UF
student on campus May 18 has
been arrested.
Aaron Ehrlich, a linguistics
junior, was robbed at gunpoint
by a man with a .22-caliber
handgun, said University
Police Department Detective
Jeff Moran. Ehrlich was not
injured, but the man took his
wallet and cell phone.
On May 19, Gainesville
Police Department arrested
Shalyn D. McMiller on charges
of armed robbery and carjack-
ing.
GPD then contacted UPD
to say McMiller matched the
description of the suspect in the
robbery.
Ehrlich said the man walked

When the man was about
2 feet away, he pointed a gun
at Ehrlich and reached into
Ehrlich's pocket. He pulled out
Ehrlich's cell phone, keys and
wallet, but dropped the keys,
Ehrlich said.
"It was pretty terrifying," he
said.
Moran said McMiller was
carrying the gun and riding the
bicycle that matched Ehrlich's
description when he was arrest-
ed. Ehrlich said when he went to
GPD to identify the suspect, he
couldn't tell if McMiller looked
like the man who robbed him.
"I was only like 85 percent
sure that it was him," Ehrlich
said.

Period-eliminating pill soon available by prescription


iUF CLINIC MAY OFFER THE
DRUG TO STUDENTS.

By NOEL SANCHEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

The newest contraceptive to
hit the market may not be so new
after all.


The Food and Drug
Administration approved Lybrel
last week, the first federally ap-
proved birth control pill meant to
completely eliminate periods.
But avoiding periods is noth-
ing new, said Phylis Brinkman
Craig, nurse practitioner at the
Women's Clinic at the Student
Health Care Center.


Most oral contraceptives work
in 28-day cycles.
Women take their pill daily for
three weeks with a
Public week off to allow for
HIi tR menstruation.
Lybrel works the
same way, except it is taken con-
tinuously.
"It's just missing the week


*off and is marketed differently,"
Craig said. "It's basically the same
thing."
Lybrel comes out in July, and
Craig expects that representatives
from Wyeth, its manufacturer,
will probably come by the SHCC
to pitch the drug.
She thinks there will be a
demand from students, and the


pharmacy will eventually carry it
in about a year if it can get a good
price, she said.
Craig also stressed that stop-
ping menstruation is not harmful
if it is done purposely with birth
control.
"If you can manipulate your
periods to your advantage, I'm all
for that," she said.


Expert speaks at UF about raising children with autism


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Like most parents, Christine and Bryan
Williams said they wouldn't change a thing
about their child.
But 5-year-old Christopher is a little dif-
ferent.
"Does anyone here have infants or tod-
dlers under the age of 10 with autism?"
asked David Holmes, autism expert, at
a speech in Norman Hall on Wednesday
night.
The Williams weren't the only ones
- about five in a crowd of about 70 raised
their hands.
"Moms and dads aren't crying for
a cure. They're crying for more
services."
David Holmes
autism expert

"We're going to be talking about your
children's futures," Holmes said. "We need
services for a lifetime."
Most research is focused on diagnosis,
but he said recognizing autism is easy.
Holmes is the director of a consulting
company for families arid individuals with
autism, a social disorder.
He was hired by Tacachale, a facility in


Gainesville that provides round-the-clock
care for 474 adults with disabilities, said
Becky Dobbin, spokeswoman for the center.
Holmes was paid by the center for his
speech and for an autism workshop that will
take place today.
Dobbin said she didn't know how much
he was paid.
Holmes said what the autistic community
needs is more practical behavioral therapy.
"Moms and dads aren't crying for a
cure," he said. "They're crying for more
services."
If autistics disappeared from the earth,
"we'd lose Nobel Prize winners," Holmes
said. "We'd lose heads of physics depart-
ments."
But he added that it's important to mod-
ify the education of autistic children so they
can learn to live in the real world.
Whatever you do with autistics becomes
hardwired in their brains, so any activities
that aren't useful later in life shouldn't be
introduced to them, he said.
If autistic children aren't equipped with
appropriate behaviors and phrases to use in
certain situations, they might revert to famil-
iar phrases or behaviors, he said.
Autistics might recycle phrases that have
solicited positive responses in the past or
mimic phrases they've heard before.
In addition, Holmes said because autis-
tics are so impressionable, it's important to


keep them away from activities that could
reinforce violence, such as pornography or
some video games.
What's make-believe for normal people
could offer a dangerous alter ego for people
with autism, he said.


Before the event, the Williams'
said they attended in order to prepare
their family for Christopher's future.
"(Christopher has) taught us much more
than we'll ever teach him," Christine
Williams said. "He's a blessing."

On homeless, students skeptical, empathetic, apathetic


Editor's note: The issue over whether the
city should evict the homeless resi-
dents of Tent City has been divisive. An
Alligator reporter roamed campus this
week to find out how students feel about
Gainesville's downtrodden.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

How do you feel about the City of
Gainesville trying to shut down Tent City?
"It's [Tent City's] getting them off the
street. Isn't that what everyone's complain-


ing about anyway?" -Sean-Patrick Prince,
health science junior
"They need support. Kicking them out
and letting them roam isn't going to fix
anything." -Jorge Blanco, classical studies
senior
"I guess if that's what the city decides to
do, there's nothing I can do about it."-Jason
Wilkinson, linguistics senior
"If you're going to kick them out, at least
have a shelter for them to go to." -Jennifer
Sundook, philosophy junior


"It depends if the person is really needy or
they're clinically sick. But if someone is lazy or
panhandling, then no." -Jorge Blanco, classi-
cal studies senior
"Pretty much everyone is against pay-
ing more taxes. I'm leaning towards private
organizations because they
Around are more focused on the
Gainesville endeavor." -Daniel Hall,
materials science and engi-
neering junior
"If it's going towards a worthy cause, then


yeah. At least I know where my money's go-
Would you be willing to pay more taxes if ing." -Sean-Patrick Prince, health science
that meant more housing for the homeless? junior


If a homeless person comes up to you dur-
ing the day/night, what impression does that
leave on you?
"I never carry cash so it's very awkward.
I don't think they believe me." -Max Diaz,
anthropology senior
"At first its all right. It starts to get a little
tiresome. I'll hand out money, but I see those
same people out there for months at a time."
-Vernal Douglas, electrical engineering ju-
nior
"I typically feel sorry for them. In a lot of
cases, it's not really their fault. I like to believe
in second chances for people." -Daniel Hall,
materials science and engineering junior

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Senators resign after failing to meet requirements


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer


Student senators voted to allow 12 of 14 senators up for
expulsion to keep their seats after a four-hour Senate meeting
Tuesday.
On May 22, Lindsey Johns, chairwoman of the Rules &
Ethics Committee, named the 14 senators after they failed to
complete their requirements.
The remaining two senators resigned, said Senate President
Robert Agrusa. Former Sens. Cecilia Amador, a Swamp senator
who represented graduate students, and Tanaz Vaghaiwalla, a
Swamp senator who represented District A, turned in their res-
ignations prior to the meeting.


Amador was originally voted for expulsion, but Agrusa
said she had sent an e-mail informing him of her resignation
late Monday night.
Johns said Senate Pro Tempore Kevin
Reilly, who is also the chairman of the
Replacement & Agenda Committee, would
take applications for the two seats starting
June 5. Student Body statutes require sena-
tors to attend four meetings each semester.
Senators who' represent living districts
must meet with housing groups and at-
Agrusa tend City Commission meetings. Those
representing UF's colleges must meet with
their college's student advisory council and other on-campus
student organizations.


Senators who don't fill their meeting quota are placed on
probation. The Senate voted in support of Johns' committee,
which recommended keeping seven of the senators. The other
five sent written appeals or delivered them before the Senate.
Sen. Lewis Curtwright, a Swamp senator representing
District D, began to cry as senators came to his defense.
"I never cry about anything," he said after the meeting. "'
really learned who my friends are."
Curtwright said the experience taught him to be more
proactive as a senator but added that he thought the expulsion
process was marred by confusion.
All senators' appeals cited paperwork errors or inadequate
probation notices as reasons for not meeting requirements.
Johns said she thinks her committee supplied adequate
notice.


City, county train for hurricane preparedness


HURRICANE, from page 1

beginning of June.
During the season, there is not as
much time to train departments like
Fire Rescue for the city and county
because there is always a chance that a
hurricane will come into the area.
Tim Hayes, assistant fire chief for
Gainesville Fire Rescue, said there are
benefits to the monthly meetings.
"The hurricanes to us is
like the earthquakes out in
California."
Tim Hayes
assistant fire chief for Gainesville Fire
Rescue

"It's a coordinated effort," he
added.
The training is helpful in preparing
city and county departments on the
emergency plan as it evolves.
Hayes said the plan can change as
they figure out better ways to deal
with disasters.
"The hurricanes to us is like the
earthquakes out in California," he
said.
John Tisdale, transmission and
distribution manager for Gainesville
Regional Utilities, said his department


helps perform maintenance on several
power lines.
He added that his department helps
the city retain power during, a storm
by removing trees that may endanger
power lines.


About a dozen trees have been re-
moved or trimmed for this year's hur-
ricane season, he said. Most of these
trees are damaged by lighting or are
dying, Tisdale added.

them to the bicycle compound, a small,
fence-enclosed square lot near Lake Alice.
The last bike collection was May 17.
Holcomb said 238 bicycles were collected,
but further collection was postponed due
to lack of space at the compound.
The next collection will probably be
mid-July, Holcomb added, depending
on when UPD finishes tagging all the
bicycles.
There will also be a bike
- On auction before then to clear
Campus room in the compound for all
the new additions.
David Dykes, property manager of
Asset Management Services at the physi-
cal plant, is in charge of categorizing the
bicycles and putting them up for auction
online.
At the back of the compound, Dykes
pointed to a group of somewhat newer-
looking bicycles with shiny paint and
working parts.
"I usually take the best-looking bikes
for individual auction," Dykes said.
Even if a bicycle has gone up for auc-
tion, the owner still has two weeks to
reclaim it.
"They have until the auction closes,"
Dykes said. "After that, it's the bidder's."

Laurels department we cued up our iPods to the Marcels'
hit song and cracked open a few bottles of the Belgian-
style white beer but our teetotalist editors immediately
made us.pour the brew down the sink. But then we got to
thinking about rare events, and how we might not have a
chance to write about this again any time soon. So enjoy
this once-in-a-blue-moon edition of...



Darts & Laurels
We lead off with a double whammy: a this-is-some-
thing-that-shouldn't-happen-even-once DART to an
embezzling former UF professor and a why-did-you-let-
'this-happen-twice DART to UF for not firing him the first
time this happened. In 2004, Paul Wharton, a professor at
UF College of Medicine's Jacksonville campus, along with
three UF doctors, were reprimanded for embezzling more
than $1 million of excess grant money.
Wharton resigned in 2005 but not before he embez-
zled again, this time for about a quarter of a million. He
recently pleaded guilty and received five years' probation,
two years' house arrest, and he must pay a $10,000 fine. It
astonishes us that embezzling only warrants a slap on the
wrist from UF, but we're upset that a man who suppos-
edly made a career out of his desire to help others stole
money for himself.
Up next, we have a how-often-do-those-without-
homes-get-evicted DART to the City of Gainesville
which has threatened to evict the residents of Tent City.
Landowners may be fined for violating zoning laws if they
allow the homeless to camp out on their property. The goal
of the crack-down is to increase awareness of available ser-
vices for the homeless, Gainesville's block grant manager
Jim Hencin said.
But those "available services" aren't always so avail-
able: Shelters have limited beds and many have stipu-
lations, such as only accepting women or veterans. Soup
kitchens only have so much food. Even the biggest hearts
can't help all of Gainesville's nearly 1,000 homeless.
As much as we hate'to say it, we can understand why
Gainesville doesn't wAnt the homeless staying in public
spaces such as the Downtown Plaza. But if private land-
owners have no problem with their outdoor guests, well,
that should be their business.
We hand a way-to-stand-up-to-the-man-for-once
LAUREL to Lindsey Johns, chairwoman of the Student
Senate Rules and Ethics Committee. She recommended 14
senators be expelled from the Senate for failing to com-
plete their required duties. The senate voted Tuesday to
keep 12 of them on board. The other two resigned.
But what seems like a meaningless gesture is much
more by taking the step of actually holding the senators
responsible, Johns showed that she is serious about her re-
sponsibilities. We aren't surprised none of the 12 senators
was voted out see last week's Darts & Laurels but we
are happy that some think holding the senators account-
able is important.
Finally, a you-should-have-literally-darted-the-whales
DART to marine scientists tracking two humpbacks, a
mother and her calf, that made their way 90 miles up the
Sacramento River. Now, before you write angry "Save the
whales" letters, we don't mean "dart" as in "harpoon." We
love the gentle giants just as much if not. more than
anyone else. But we aren't sure why the scientists didn't
tag the whales with satellite tracking devices.
They got close enough to inject the whales with anti-
biotics, so they could have tagged them. But they didn't,
blaming gusty winds and malfunctioning equipment, and
now they've lost the marine mammals. Scientists believe
the pair made it back safely to the Pacific Ocean. We hope
it's true, because that's a success story we only hear once
in a blue moon.

Memorial Day has
ince the beginning of the Iraq War, Memorial Day
seems to have taken on two polar meanings one
is carefree and light-hearted, celebrating a day off
from work, and the other reflective and concerned with
the situation in Iraq. This dichotomy is evident in the
news.
Over the past few days, most articles relating to
Memorial Day focused on either potlucks, springs open-
ings and community barbecues, or on controversial war
awareness. It is as though we can't make up our mind
about what the day should stand for.
Most people don't like to think about the war for one
reason or another and even fewer like to debate it.
Heavily opinionated partisans tend to dominate debates
as they shoot off statistics and facts from random, if not
biased, sources, oppressing weak debaters.
Discussing the war has become like discussing reli-
gion: Everyone has personal opinions, and the polite, if
not necessary, thing to do is ignore the topic all together.
In political science classes, professors make disclaimers
about the subject matter because they are afraid of
creating tension in class, they make a conscious effort not
to reveal their opinions.
I suppose I can see why, in certain social situations,
the war would be taboo to bring up. And OK, I under-
stand how a political science professor's job is to objec-
tively explain how the government works. But certainly,
out of all the days of the year,'Memorial Day is the day to
question our position in Iraq.
Memorial Day is a day commemorating those who
have died while serving in the U.S. military. When
someone dies, it is only natural to look for the reason.
However, no one likes to think a loved one died for a du-
bious cause. The resulting rationale becomes a case of the
stereotypical Republican argument: If you don't support


dual meaning
the war in Iraq, you don't support
t the troops and the families of
those who have died.
Thus begins the sticky debate
so many of us prefer to avoid.
i Thinking about the war was
ot Atkis never more than a touchy subject
Dorothy Atkins I thought best not to discuss. It
letters@alligator.org wasn't until my 23-year-old broth-
er joined the Army in September
that I began rethinking the way I thought about it.
Hoping to create a career for himself, he's done well.
He survived boot camp and became a medic. He's cur-
rently in Airborne School in Georgia. Due to his high
achievements, he was offered a spot in Washington D.C.
as an honor guard medic.
All these achievements, however, just buy him time
before his inevitable deployment to the Middle East.
SWhen asked if I am proud of my brother, all I can think
of is the running list in The New York Times of the troops
killed in Iraq.
I am proud my brother is doing well in the Army. But
in light of this complicated, multifaceted war, I can't see
how anyone can justify adding my brother's name to
that list.
He tells me that he knows what he is getting into, and
he says he has come to terms with losing his life for a
stable government in Iraq. I wish I were as accepting.
Memorial Day was hot and sunny a good day for
a swim. I would like to go back to thinking of Memorial
Day as a three-day weekend. But until the war is over;
I'm afraid it will not only be a reminder of loved ones
past, but also of loved ones who may still die.

Ex-professor stole from UF


* THE PROFESSOR WAS PUNISHED
FOR A SEPARATE CASE IN 2004 INVOLV-
ING SUSPICIOUS MONEY TRANSFERS.

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

A former UF pediatrics professor recently
pleaded guilty to a felony charge of embezzle-
ment.
According to court records, Paul Wharton, a
former professor at the UF College of Medicine's
Jacksonville campus, received a sentence of five
years' probation, two years of house arrest and
$10,000 in fines on May 7.
The records state that Wharton, who resigned
in 2005, embezzled $252,909.97 from two grants
received by UF from the Florida Department of
Education.
Wharton used some of the money to pay for
his personal life.
Wharton used association funds at Home
Depot, Jiffy Lube, Bubbles Car Wash, Target and
Publix. He also used money for family vacations
to Colorado and Walt Disney World.
"This is a very unusual and rare incidence
at the University of Florida," said Tom Fortner,
spokesman for UP's Health Science Center.


Without the stolen funds, Fortner said Wharton
made about $140,000 a year.
But this wasn't Wharton's first filch of UF
funds.
According to Alligator archives, in 2004
Wharton and three UF doctors were reprimanded
after more than $1 million of excess grant money
were transferred into two private foundations.
The doctors created two false contracts to
move UF money into Wharton's association and
the Children's Crisis Center so they could have
control over where the money went, according to
the records.
"This is a very unusual and rare inci-
dence at the University of Florida."
Tom Fortner
spokesman for UF's Health Science Center

After the 2004 incident, Wharton was relieved
of his lobbying and some administrative duties,
Fortner said.
The Health Science Center made several
changes to try to prevent money from disappear-
ing, including an increase in monitoring large
amounts of money. Funds must be approved
before being moved, Fortner said.
Wharton returned all of the stolen money for
both cases, according to the records.


First blue moon since


2004 to appear


By HOLLY GIBBS
Alligator Contributing Writer

There's an event tonight that
happens once in a blue moon.
At 9:04 p.m., the first blue moon
in North America since July 2004
will appear.
A blue moon is a phenomenon
that occurs when there are two full
moons in a one-month period. The
first full moon was May 2.
"Two full moons in a month
happens about once every 33
months, on average," said Tony
Phillips, a UF alumnus and NASA
astronomer.
The term blue moon, which
dates back 400 years, originally
referred to something that was rare
or absurd. Since then, however, the
meaning has been misinterpreted


into the modem definition of the
second full moon in one month.
As for the moon actually appear-
ing to be blue, it isn't likely to take
on any unusual color, said Francisco
Reyes, a UF associate scientist of
astronomy and director of the UF
Radio Observatory.
LOCal "Ifs called a blue
,News moon, but it has
I nothing to do with its
color," Reyes said.
However, Phillips said that
because of the ash in the air from
the recent regional fires, there is a
chance the moon will appear blue,
but not a strong one.
"To make a good blue filter,
the particles of ash need to be of a
single size about one micron in
diameter," Phillips said. "This kind
of special ash is possible."

Wa[k on nature's turf :Kanapaha is a trove of
Sgreenery and scenery


JOE SCHUESSLER I AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER


Y7ou don't need a tent and a sleep-
ing bag to get out into the wild
you don't even need to get out of
Gainesville.
Kanapaha Botanical Gardens offers a
chance to step outside of the whirlwind of
classes, work, meetings, parties, bars, clubs
and, literally, a chance to stop and smell the
roses.
Visitors can take a walk down shady trails
lined with lily turf and look at thousands of
types of plants, everything from blooming
roses of a half-dozen different colors and
trees ranging from diminutive dwarf trees
less than a foot high to towering oaks and
magnolias and dense clusters of bamboo.


At the home of the Gators, you can
encounter a Red Buckeye tree for the first
time. Ohio State University fans, with all
due respect to Aesculus pavia, it would be
tough to come up with a less-inspiring ath-
letic mascot.
Flowers are everywhere, and during this
time of year, roses, lilies and acacias are in
bloom.
"Something changes every day," said
Lisa Finch, a member and frequent visitor
to Kanapaha Botanical Gardens. "There's
always something new in bloom."
The gardens, at 4700 SW 58th Drive, are
large and abundant enough to take up an
entire morning or afternoon, and there is

plenty for the senses to take in.
The gardens are developed and operated
by a non-profit educational organization,
the North Florida Botanical Society, and the
62 acres under cultivation make Kanapaha
Botanical Gardens the second largest of its
kind in the state.
There are 14 unique collections of plants
visible from the paved walkway, which in-
cude a wide variety of flora and many rare
and exotic species. Garden visitors can pick
up new ideas for gardening and landscap-
ing and can purchase new plants.

On the WillCSide
Plants aren't the only side of nature you
can observe at the gardens. Its location, near
Lake Kanapaha, makes this a prime spot for
wildlife sightings.
"One thing I like about this garden is that
there is a sense of adventure," said Traci Jo
Partin, the horticulturist and volunteer co-
ordinator at the gardens. "I've seen owls,
snakes, skinks, blue herons, and ibises.
Every time I go out, there's that thrill that
I'm going to see something I've never seen
before."
Two collections feature plants that are
made to attract hummingbirds and but-
terflies.
Visitors don't have to be naturalists to
enjoy a trip to the gardens. The lush green
grounds make an ideal setting for picnics,
quiet study, first dates or a daytime side trip
with visiting parents or grandparents. They
also offer an opportunity for volunteer work
for students and organizations.
A new ginger garden was recently
planted in a space that had been overgrown
by a non-native species until UF volunteer
groups pitched in to remove it.
But students aren't the only ones who
come to help out.
"We have some very dedicated people
who've been coming here since practically
when the gardens started," Partin said.
Lawbreakers who have performed court-
mandated community service at the gardens
have found the work so rewarding that they
have returned to volunteer in their own free
time, Partin said.


Kanapaha Botanical Gardens has been a
fixture in Gainesville since 1978. The name
"Kanapaha" derives from the Timucua
Indian words for "house" and "Palmetto
leaf," which together describe the dwellings
of the Native Americans that were on the
shore of Lake Kanapaha.
Founder and Director Don Goodman has
managed the gardens since its inception. It
now boasts more than 800 members and
continues to expand.

Growing Out
Construction has begun on a new garden
- the Alexander Cook Bowen Children's
Garden that is geared toward handi-
capped children. This unique garden will
include wheelchair-accessible hedge mazes
and features that appeal to the senses of
hearing and touch, such as a waterfall and a
rock wall embedded with engraved designs,
with deaf and blind children in mind.
"This is a handicapped garden that's
accessible to the non-handicapped, not the
other way around," said James Bowen, de-
signer of the new garden.
The garden will be a memorial for
Bowen's 2-year-old son Alexander, who
died in 2000, according to the garden's Web
site. There are also plans for a new conserva-
tory in the making.
"We'll have to change our map pretty
soon," Partin said. "That's exciting to see."
If you have the chance, take in a slice
of serenity this summer at this natural
wonderland. Chill out, walk around, learn
something new, do some meaningful vol-
unteer work or find a quiet corer and be
reminded of what it sounds like to hear
yourself breathe, uninterrupted by noise,
save the trickling of a waterfall and the
chirping of birds.
The Kanapaha Botanical Gardens are
open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and
Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday
and Sunday from dawn until dusk.
Admission to the park is $5, or an unlim-
ited, individual membership is $30 ($25 for
students).
More information is available at the gardens'
Web site, www.kanapaha.org.

Virgins just
How many people are still saving it for
marriage?
Sunday, my friends and I braved the
Memorial Day crowds at the springs.
A girl I know brought along a friend of
hers who proved to be quite the hot item
with my buddies and me.
Soon, we received warning that this
girl, two weeks after her college gradu-
ation, is still a virgin. In my mind, this
translated into: You're really going to have
to bring your A-game if you want to crack
this one.
For some reason, I have always found

or if they are leaving the rest of us in the

I was eager to learn the mysteries of her
kind, so I asked her, "Why the wait?"
Disregarding the fact
that I had only met her the
night before, she opened ar, e
up. Religion usually hov-
ers in the background of a b &W "

card at 20 years old, but ,-
she was simply waiting
until marriage.
Concerned for her future sexual hap-
pness, I pleaded with her: "But what if
\-o'ur husband sucks? You'll be trapped
It a marriage of bad sex and, lacking the
experience to make it right, will be stuck


with it for eternity."
She made me feel shallow by remind-
ing me that there is more to marriage
than sex dearly a virgin's perspective. I
pulled out my analogy, "But you wouldn't

She dragged our egos through dance

into becoming a born-again virgin. I now
claim that I too am a proud holder of my

Shakespeare gets makeover


STEPHANIE GRANADA ) AVENUE WRITER
Gainesville summers are full of opportunities:
less traffic, outdoor adventures and endlessly
uneventful nights, to name a few.
This summer, the UF School of Theatre and
Dance is trying to drag the local public out of the
usual drink-and-movie rut.
Beginning Thursday and running through
Aug. 12, six of UF's master of fine arts program
actors will sweep the Black Box Theatre's stage.
The cast will perform an
over-the-top consolidation of You d
William Shakespeare's 37 plays that(
in a production entitled "The you.
Complete Works of Shakespeare have E
Abridged." Sa
Sarah Modell, production production man
manager for UF's School of School of Theatl
Theatre and Dance, said three
of the six cast members will
be featured nightly, performing all the roles in
Shakespeare's plays in about 90 minutes.
The fast-paced production will be packed
with witty dialogue, awkward female imperson-
ations and willful mix-ups.
The School of Theatre and Dance prepared the
improvisation-influenced script to allow for extra
input: Members of the audience will have the op-
portunity to take an active role in the fun, as the

cast calls for audience participation.
"You don't have to be into theater for it to
appeal to you," Modell said. "It's a lot of fun, so
have a good time."
Dialogue throughout the performance will
use pop culture and local references, which
makes Shakespeare contemporary.
Segments of the show will feature the actors
engaging in Beastie Boys-style raps to interpret
"Othello," as well as a cooking show version of
"Titus Andronicus."
l't have to be into The unique nature of the
for it to appeal to play is increased by its mid-
night showings, which will
s a lot of fun, so run Friday and Saturday
food time. nights.
Modell "We thought it would be
,erfor UF's something fun for the col-
and Dance lege students that are still in
town," Modell said.
This is the first time this
type of show has been produced at UF, Modell
said. The comedic antics in the script and uncon-
ventional nature of the production, make for a
show that different audiences can enjoy.
Tickets cost $9 for students and $13 for the
general public.

'Bug' brings paranoia


Director William Friedkin, who
brought us the one-two punch of
"The French Connection" and "The
Exorcist" in the early 1970s, directed a
new thriller, "Bug," an award-winner
at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival.
.The film, which was released in
America on Friday, stars Ashley Judd
in one of her few decent roles. Judd's
character, Agnes, is a tortured soul of
the white-trash persuasion who bonds
with a mysterious stranger, Peter,
played by Michael Shannon, while she
avoids her abusive ex-husband, Jerry,
played by Harry Connick Jr.
Peter draws Agnes into his world
of paranoia, complete with conspiracy
theories that incorporate Timothy
McVeigh, Ted Kaczynski and a motel
room crawling with invisible bugs.
The film adapted by Tracy Letts
from his off-Broadway hit feels like
a play from a past life. The mundane
becomes delusional, resulting in an
evolution more frightening than
that of Regan from innocent child to


crab-walk-
ing demon
in "The
Exorcist."
It does
not come
from the
devil, DANNY DJELJOSEVIC
but from within.
The performances of the three
principal actors are stellar. Michael
Shannon, reprising his role as Peter
from the stage performance of "Bug,"
masters the seemingly harmless (yet
very creepy) and spineless character
so well that the result is shock and
horror when his true nature is re-
vealed.
"Bug" is as provocative and chal-
lenging as it is intense and creepy.
The film balances a relationship of
conspiracy theories and self-destruc-
tive paranoia with one of abuse and
patriarchal control to create a truly
unsettling experience of paranoia and
the human condition.

UF MEN'S GOLF

McKenney leads Gators at NCAAs

By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Writer ,- .
For Tim McKenney, this golf course brings back
good memories.
Returning to Golden Horseshoe Golf Club in
Williamsburg, Va., where the freshman notched his -'
first-ever top-20 finish, McKenney led the way for
the UF men's golf team on day one of the NCAA '
Championships. -"
Carding a 66 (4 under par) in the opening round, -
McKenney is currently tied for second overall. K,
"Tim was huge for us today," UF coach Buddy
Alexander said. "He had been a little off during the .
spring, but he got something to click today, and he
made a lot of nice putts. If you want to win a champion-
ship, you need someone to step up big each day, and
Tim was that guy for us this afternoon." H"
"We played smart, consistent golf-today,
and it showed in our scores."
Buddy Alexander
UFcoach .W


The team shares a similar spot on the leaderboard as
they begin their pursuit for a fifth national title.
The No. 7 Gators combined to fire a 278 (2 under) on
the day, landing themin a three-way tie for third only
3 strokes behind leader No. 2 Stanford.
"We played smart, consistent golf today, and it
showed in our scores," Alexander said. "We're throw-
ing out a 72, and that's only two over par. You can
do a lot worse than that, especially at the NCAA
Championships. It was great to see five guys hang right
in there all day and play a solid round as a group."
Once ranked as the top team in the nation, the Gators
showed why they're capable of living up to the hype
they carried into the spring.
The lineup, which has been shuffled all season,
seems to be clicking at the right time.
This match marks the fourth time this group has
played as a unit and only the first time all season the
teammates have played in the same positions for con-
secutive outings.

Statement needs

to be made for

UF baseball

his time two years ago, the UF base-
ball team was beginning a run that
took it just one step short of reach-
ing the pinnacle of its sport.
After two straight seasons of mediocri-
ty and disappointment, it's amazing how
distant two years ago can seem.
As many of you fade into the nostalgia
of those treasured days of the past, think
of how long ago 17 years can seem.
That's how long the UF baseball team

coached a game for
UF's football team,
the other George
Bush was president
of the United States
and the Cold War
was still going on.
That's a long
time ago.
And that's why


somebody has got to go.
Whether it's fair or not, someone has to
send the message that mediocrity, let alone
losing seasons, will not be tolerated at UF.
It seems harsh, but this is a school that
has prided itself on unprecedented ath-
letic success during Jeremy Foley's reign
as athletic director.
That's why UF coach Pat McMahon's
predecessor, Andy Lopez, was fired de-
spite two Southeastern Conference titles
and two College World Series appearances
in seven years.
Lopez was let go just three years after
reaching his second College World Series
with the Gators.
Is it fair to fire McMahon just two years
removed from reaching the College World
Series in 2005?
You can certainly make the argument
that McMahon deserves at least another
season.
That 2006 team that floundered despite
enormous expectations wasn't as loaded
with talent as it was made out to be. With
the departures of shortstop Justin Tordi
and starting pitchers Alan Home and

Resurgent season earns LaPorta All-America nod


* TWO UF SOFTBALL PLAYERS
WERE ALSO HONORED.

STAFF REPORT

Senior first baseman Matt LaPorta was
named a second-team Louisville Slugger
All-American on Wednesday, while the
UF softball team had two players honored


as well.
LaPorta finished the year with a .402
batting average and smacked 20 home
runs with 52 RBI.
Arizona State's Brett Wallace beat out
LaPorta for first-team honors at the first
base position. Wallace is batting .426 with
15 home runs and 73 RBI.
Stephen F. Austin first baseman Steven
Hill was selected over LaPorta for the des-


more pitcher


ignated-hitter spot on the
team. Hill hit .385 with 24
home runs and 73 RBI.
LaPorta did win first-
team All-America honors
after his sophomore sea-
son when he hit .328 with
26 homers and 79 RBI.
Meanwhile, sopho-
Stacey Nelson was named


to the second team after finishing the year
with a 34-14'record and an ERA of 0.95.
She struck out 285 batters and allowed 205
hits in 318 innings of work.
Nelson was joined by fellow sopho-
more second baseman Kim Waleszonia,
who took home third-team honors.
Waleszonia finished the year with a
.365 average. She also scored 46 runs and
drove in 29 RBI.


Horschel named to second-straight PING All-Southeast Region Team


GOLF, from page 19


Aside from McKenney's out-
standing play, the team was consis-
tent up and down the lineup.
Junior Manuel Villegas contin-
ued his improved play, tallying a
70 (even) in day one. Villegas is cur-


rently tied for 29th.
Sophomore Billy Horschel,
coming off a tie for first at the East
Regional, notched a 71 (1 over),
good for a tie for 51st.
Joining him is junior Tyler Brown,
who fired a 71 (1 over) as well.
Rounding out the lineup is soph-
omore Toby Ragland, who shot a 72
(2 over) to tie for 66th.


The confident Gators, who won
the Preview Invitational on the same
course this fall, will
now look to carry
their momentum
into the second day
Golf ofplay.
UF will tee off for
round two early this
morning.


"There's a saying in golf that
you can't win a tournament on the
first day, but you can lose it, and
we certainly didn't do that today,"
Alexander said. "We got off to a
good start and made a lot of putts. It
was definitely nice to get going with
a good round and have a positive
start to build on."


HORSCHEL HONORED: Horschel was
recently named to the PING All-
Southeast Region team.
For Horschel, the nation's sec-
ond-ranked golfer, this is his second
time earning the honor in as many
years. It joins a list of accolades that
includes Southeastern Conference
Player of the Year and first team All-
SEC selection.


OUT LOUD, from page 19

Tommy Boss, the team lost so much pitching
and defense that a talented lineup constantly
found itself trying to claw from several runs
behind. On many occasions it appeared to
have acquired the mental epidemic of swing-
ing for the fences.
And after losing tons of talent to the draft
following that season, the team actually im-
proved in 2007, earning, a spot in the SEC
Tournament.
But with Matt LaPorta, college baseball's
equivalent of Barry Bonds (in offensive prow-
ess, not character) leaving the lineup, it's
Going to take a minor miracle to replace that
offensive production.
The team will also lose outfielders Brian
Leclerc and Austin Pride, leaving shortstop
Cole Figueroa as the team's only returning
productive hitter.
And if junior Bryan Augenstein decides to
head for the draft, the pitching staff will once
again take a major hit, losing its best starter as
well as its closer, David Hurst.
Surely, even McMahon has to wonder if


his team is heading in the right direction after
consecutive mediocre seasons.
Whether McMahon deserves to stick
around is up to Foley, but if McMahon stays,
perhaps it's time to cut ties with his assistant
coaches.
In some way, shape or form, something
within the program needs to change.
Either UF isn't bringing in strong enough
talent to win consistently or that talent isn't
being developed the way it should be.
And unfortunately, the way you make a
statement in sports is to fire somebody.
If you don't make that statement, you are
admitting to your fans and to potential re-
cruits that mediocrity is acceptable at UF, and
that is something a program simply can't do if
it wants to be successful.
Foley hasn't been shy about pulling that
trigger before, most recently with former
women's basketball coach Carolyn Peck.
It's just sad that such a message inevitably
has to come at the expense of a good person
losing a job.
And if McMahon doesn't return for a
seventh season, then that is exactly what will
have happened.
