UF's search for a new head basketball

Meanwhile, the Magic confirmed

Moat forming around digging scientists


By MARK SCOHIER
Alligator Contributing Writer
For paleontologists, a good day's work is a
dig through time. However, for bone hunters
from the Florida Museum of Natural History,
time is running out.
In a Friday night speech at Holiday Inn
West, Richard Hulbert, vertebrate paleontol-
ogy collection manager for the museum, said
paleontologists and volunteers have about a
year left to finish excavating one of Florida's
richest fossil sites.


* It's been a rocky
few days for Nick
Calathes and the
rest of UF's highly
touted recruiting
class, but the group
is relieved that
Billy Donovan may
remain UF's coach
after all.
See story, pg. 20.


"Eventually, they will dig com-
pletely around us."
Richard Hulbert
Florida Museum of Natural History

The site, which is known as Haile 7G, is
owned by Limestone Products Inc. and is
located within a large-scale mining operation
just outside of Newberry.
"Eventually, they will dig completely
around us," Hulbert said about the compa-

any's mining activity.
The site will be surrounded by a moat of
quarry water, turning the site into an island
and making excavation nearly impossible, he
explained.
Hulbert said Haile 7G is unusual for a
Florida site because it "produces whole skel-
etons and not just isolated bones." The bones
are also extremely well preserved, he added.
The fossil site, which is about 2 million
years old, was discovered in 2005 and has
produced 414 skeletons, including mammals,

The Gator Nation, with a
capital "The" no matter where
it is in a sentence, is a regis-

ing director reminding them to
capitalize. See story, pg. 4.

UF Preview students have
a brand new bag this summer
- or at least something brand
new in it.
As part of UF's new; Common
Reading Program, each Preview
student's beige canvas bag will
include a book that officials from
the Dean of Students Office are
encouraging all new students
to read by the start of classes,
said Eugene Zdziarski, dean of
students.
The First-Year Florida course,
offered to freshmen to help them
with their first year at UF, will
incorporate "Mountains Beyond
Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul
Farmer A Man Who Would Cure
the World," by
Tracy Kidder,
into its curricu-
lum.
The Dean.
of Students
Office. is. urg-
Kidder ing UF faculty
members and
teachers to incorporate the book
into their curriculums during the
upcoming school year, according
to a UF press release.
A committee of 15 people,
including UF faculty and staff
members, representatives from
different departments and two
UF students chose Kidder's
book.
The two students were for-
mer and current Preview staff
members, said Leslie Hahn, as-

SFCC to model U.N.


a UF STUDENTS ARE NOT PAR-
TICIPATING.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

College students who care about
stopping the ramifications of global
warming would probably never get
the chance to sign resolutions at the
U.N. Headquarters.
But for SFCC students Abed Aldick,
Lorey Campese and Kelsey Sellgren,
this chance has become reality.
The three students and members
of SFCC's Model U.N. team will join
nearly 400 students from around the
United States to attend the U.N. Third
Annual Global Forum in New York
City.
Campese, president of SFCC's
Model U.N. team said, "That's the
coolest: to be 20 years old and have the
opportunity to write some statutes on
international law."
The event will last from Wednesday
until Friday. Students will listen to sci-
entists explain their data and findings
on global warming, speak with ambas-
sadors and representatives of the U.N.,
and come up with their own resolu-
tions on preventing global warming.
Al Gore, whose movie "An
Inconvenient Truth" shed light on the
issue, will also be at the forum to give
a presentation.
"I can't wait to actually talk to all
these big people like Al Gore and
the rest of the diplomats that will be
there," said Aldick, the team's vice
president.
Sellgren, the team's treasurer, said
she is looking forward to the opportu-
nity despite the long hours they'll be


contributing to the cause.
"The conference lasts from 8 in
the morning until 6 in the evening.
It's going to be a constant day," she
said. "We're not really going to have
a break."
They are being sponsored by
the Gainesville United Nations
Association, Sustainable Santa Fe and
SFCC Student Leadership & Activities,
said Vilma Fuentes, an SFCC political
science professor and adviser to the
team.
"A part of our deal with these
donors is when we
Santa Fe return, the students
COmmunity are going to have
College these formal talks to
educate the student
body," she said.
"What we're just getting used to is
attending all these conferences where
we're the only community college. You
really feel it sometimes," Aldick said.
"You go there and there are all these
rich kids."
The UF Model U.N. team was
invited to attend the forum but
decided to send a representative
from the Gainesville United Nations
Association in their place, said UF
team President Justin Berlin.
The SFCC students are taking a
two-credit independent study sum-
mer class with Fuentes where they
spend time re
The team is planning to bring the
information they gather at the forum
back to SFCC in order to educate the
Gainesville community.
"I'm looking forward to creating
a new generation of informed, active,
global citizens," Fuentes said, "and
a part of the activism will begin this
summer as soon as they return."

UF: Capitalize 'The'


NA MEMO WAS SENT TO OF-
FICIALS AS A REMINDER.

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

The Gator Nation is everywhere,
and it's staking its territory.
According to the UF marketing
division, other schools have pro-
nounced themselves nations, but
there can only be one, which is why
UF has released a reminder of The
Gator Nation's terms of use.
According to a press release
from the division, any reference to
The Gator Nation must start with
"The,'" and capitalize the T,'" to
ensure it is consistent with UF's
brand and trademark.
Dan Williams, UF's director of
marketing, said when it comes to
marketing, consistency is critical.
He said "The" emphasizes that
UF is one of a kind.
But the marketing division might
have to spread the message a little
further.
A global Facebook group, called
"Gator Nation" notably miss-
ing the telltale "The" has 6,152
members.
Meanwhile, a UF Facebook
group, with the correctly repre-
sented title, "The Gator Nation,"
has six members at UF, one more


member than "Gator Nation
Annihilation" and 10 members shy
of matching "Gator Nation For The
Legal Exposure of Genitalia at Lake
Wauberg."
In addition, the specification
could spell trouble for journalism
students who lose 50 points from
their assignments for fact errors,
which include misspelled proper
nouns or inaccurate facts.
However, reporting profes-
sor Mike Foley said he probably
wouldn't consider a lowercased
"the" grounds for an instant FE
"It'll cost you," he said, but prob-
ably just five points.
In a memo to UF's deans, direc-
tors and department chairs, Joseph
Hice Jr., associate vice president for
UF's marketing and public relations,
said the deadline to transition to the
new standards is Aug. 31.
Signs on buildings and vehicles.
will be changed when they need
replacement, he said.
Allbusiness cards, stationary and
other printed materials must have
the new UF logo, but materials with
the old logo shouldn't be thrown
away, according to the memo.
Williams said old letterheads
could be made into note cards, sans
the old logo. Old business cards
could also be given to art students to
create sculptures, he added.
"It could be fun," Williams said.

Alligator Contributing Writer

According to a UF official, nearly 3,000 UF
students run the risk of having their Summer
A course registrations canceled this week.
Students who do not pay their tuition and
$100 late fees by 3:30 p.m. Wednesday will
be dropped from their classes, said Diane
Hurtak, interim assistant controller of UF
Financial Services.
She added that e-mails were sent May 31,
six days after the tuition deadline, to UF stu-


dents enrolled for the summer. The e-mails
notified students of the overdue payments as
well as the late fee.
Students charged with a late fee can fill
out a petition to have it waived. However, if
they do not hear back from the committee be-
fore the Wednesday deadline, they must still
pay their fees to avoid having their registra-
tion canceled, Hurtak said.
In order to be reinstated, students must
pay $100 on top of their late fee and tuition.
The committee usually reaches a decision
within 48 hours. After that time, a student


"There are extraordinary circumstances
where a student can't pay their tuition on
time," Hurtak said. "Well work with the stu-
dent. All the student has to do is document,
document, document."
Hurtak added that summer
On is the only time students on
CampUS 'Bright Futures scholarships and
Florida Prepaid programs need
to worry about paying their fees.
"A lot of students don't know that Bright
Futures doesn't, pay in the summer," she
added.
However, Florida Prepaid does cover


Because parents buy tuition and dorm
plans separately, students need to figure out
what their own plans cover.
UF's local fee plan includes the Activity
& Service, health, athletic and transportation
fees, and it isn't covered in the basic tuition
plan, Hurtak said.
But she added that lack of funds don't
count as a reason to waive any late fees.
"Some students will say to me, can't af-
ford to pay,'" Hurtak said. "I'm sorry, don't
go to school. If you haven't thought to go
and get a loan in time, there's nothing we
can do."

Gator grad drops millions on UF


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org


Two UF colleges are a million dollars richer thanks to a
1951 UF alumnus.
William G. Lassiter Jr. and his wife, Aneice, of West
Palm Beach, donated $1 million to UF's M.E. Rinker Sr.
School of Building Construction and $1 million to UF's
College of Medicine's Department of Pediatrics, accord-
ing to a press release from the UF Foundation.
William Lassiter, alumnus of the UF building construc-
tion program and director of a real estate development
company in West Palm Beach, said he wanted to give back
to other students in the program, according to the release.
The gift will be used to maintain buildings, support a
professorship in the school and bring construction profes-
sionals to the classes.
According to the release, Lassiter said his wife wanted
to do something for kids.
From the donation to the Department of Pediatrics,
$600,000 will endow the William G. Lassiter Jr. and Aneice
R. Lassiter Professorship with an emphasis on congenital
heart disease, which is developed before birth.
Dr. Mark Bleiweis, director of the congenital heart


center at Shands at UF and associate professor of surgery
and pediatrics at UF, said he thinks he might receive the
award, though it hasn't been officially announced.
The remaining $400,000 will endow diabetes research
fund.
"The endowment will help us continue the
great work we're doing."
Dr. Mark Blelweis
Director of the congenital heart center at Shands

Bleiweis said one of the reasons he came to UF was
to participate in innovative research in heart disease and
gene therapy, which he said has far exceeded his expecta-
tions.
According to the release, the State of Florida Trust
Fund for Major Gifts could match the total gift, which will
be formally recognized by UF President Bernie Machen.
According to the foundation, gifts of $100,000 or more
are eligible to be matched by state funds.
The size of the gift determines how much the state will
give UF.
Gifts of $1 million or more are matched at 75 percent,
according to the foundation.


The UF Foundation accepts other gifts as
well, including:

Tent City woes to be addressed at July meeting


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer

The turmoil over the homeless
camp known as Tent City may soon
be over.
On Wednesday, City Manager
Russ Blackburn sent a memo to
City Commissioners recommending
they discuss the fate of Tent City at a
meeting in July.
"At that time, staff will provide
an overview of the number of en-
campments in this general area, and
a history and analysis of public safe-
ty, and environmental issues that we
have observed," the memo stated.
They will also look at responses
by other cities that have dealt with
similar problems, according to the
memo.
About 80 to 150 people live at
various campsites on the 100 or so
acres of public and private land that
constitute Tent City, located near
South Main Street.
As of yet, the city has not taken
any definitive action against the
squatters.
Gainesville spokesman Bob
Woods said in a phone interview

City representatives sent out
"courtesy" notices last month to
some owners of private property
in Tent City to inform them that city


ordinances are being violated by al-
lowing the squatters to live there.
Woods said the city would not
know how much the fines would be
until the citations were issued, and


the city does not have any immedi-
ate plans to issue them.
Included with the notices
were "Trespassing Enforcement
Authorization" forms that, if filled


out and turned in, would allow
police to remove the Tent City resi-
dents there.
Police spokesman Lt. Keith
Kameg said no one has turned in
one of the forms.
If someone does turn one in,
though, Woods said the city would
"comply with the law" and assist
the owner in removing the people.
Were this to happen, it would
come as a relief to some local busi-

Ivonne Vazquez, owner of Best

As a result, she has installed
bars on her windows in addition to

doors that were already in place.
"You spend lots of money be-

they posted "No Trespassing" signs

Brief sit-in aimed at obstructing raid on Tent City


By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Writer
atan@alligator.org

Francis "Pat" Fitzpatrick sat in City Hall
on Thursday and declared he was starting a
sit-in.
Thinking aloud, he debated if he would
chain himself to the front door.
Fitzpatrick, an outspoken local homeless
advocate, said he decided to do the sit-in to


prevent a raid on Tent City, a group of home-
less people living in the forests near south
Main Street.
Fitzpatrick laid out several posters with
slogans such as "Housing is a right, not a
privilege" for his protest.
City spokesman Bob Woods showed up
and told him there were possible problems
with the way things were set up for exam-
ple, Fitzpatrick couldn't chain himself to the
front door and had to consolidate his posters


"I love this guy and 99 percent of
the wrong opinions he has."
Ed Braddy
Gainesville City commissioner

into one stack.
Soon after, City Manager Russ Blackburn
showed up with a promising memo that said
no action will be taken concerning Tent City


until a City Commission meeting in July.
The sit-in was cordial, with Fitzpatrick
starting a friendly conversation with
Commissioner Ed Braddy.
"I love this guy and 99 percent of the
wrong opinions he has," Braddy joked about
Fitzpatrick.
About 40 minutes after the sit-in started,
Fitzpatrick decided to call it off, promising
he'd be back in July.
"I ain't got nothing else to do," he said.


Drums beat at library


* THE TROUPE PUT ON THE
SHOW FOR CHILDREN.

By KRISTEN HUMPHREY
Alligator Contributing Writer

The sounds of percussion moved
audience members to clap and
dance along to the tribal beats from
the Makare African Dance Family.
The performance troupe
entertained children Saturday
afternoon at the Alachua County
Headquarters Library by dancing,
playing instruments and demon-
strating traditional African gar-
ments.
"It's a wonderful chance to get
children exposed to the African


culture," said Beverly Brady, a
psychologist at UF's Student Health
Care Center.
Two men played a dzembe, or
African drum, one woman played
a cowbell and another woman
shook a hollow gourd wrapped
with beads.
,The program was led by Patricia
Hilliard-Nunn, a dance instructor
and local historian, who formed the
Makare African Dance Family five
years ago.
Although she was born in
Denver, Hilliard-Nunn was raised
in Liberia, Africa, which helped
her learn to dance in a traditional
setting.
Every time she dances it is mem-
orable, she said.


Author talks about abuse book


GPD officer attended
By DANIKA DALY
Alligator Contributing Writer

A book-signing prompted local activism.
Janine Latuscame spoke about her book, "If
I Am Missing or Dead: A Sister's Story of Love,
Murder, and Liberation," at the Books Inc. on
Northwest 13th Street Saturday.
Her book, which was released Friday, sheds
light on domestic violence against women.
It is the story of her sister Amy's abusive
relationship with her husband, who eventually
murdered her.
"I had less than a year to create this book,"
Latus said. "It had to be told, so that helped a
lot. I'm just trying so hard to get everybody to
talk about it."
About 25 people attended the book read-
ing and signing, including women from the
Gainesville Police Department and Peaceful
Paths, a local nonprofit domestic abuse,net-
work.
All eyes in the room were focused on Latus


as she read excerpts from the book.
When she finished, the room erupted into
applause as the author blinked several times
and cleared her throat.
Officer Shannon Wallace-Giles, a GPD crime
prevention specialist, stood up with tears in her
eyes and introduced herself before discussing
her view of domestic violence.
"It's everywhere," Wallace-Giles said. "It's
an epidemic that women are treated the way
they are and are injured the way they are."
Theresa Harrison, executive director of
Peaceful Paths, informed the group that the
wrong thing to tell a woman who is suffering
from domestic violence is what she needs to do.
The women should instead know they are not at
fault and they are not alone, she said.-
Gainesville is just one of the places Latus has
visited to talk about the book since its release.
"I get choked up every time. Every time,"
she said.
"Usually by the time I've reached my audi-
ence, I start getting goose bumps because then
I know I'm doing something good with this ter-
rible thing."

Editorial


What slogan?

Capital "T" makes all the

difference
U F's marketing division thinks "dot all your i's and
cross all your t's" should look a little more like "dot
all your i's and capitalize all your T's."
In order to keep The brand "consistent" and "protect" its
trademark slogan, "The Gator Nation," should always begin
with a capital T. Hell, we'll play along with that policy for
today.
An e-mail from The director of marketing, Dan Williams,
said, "Many other schools have adopted the 'nation' term,
but there is only one Gator Nation ..: The Gator Nation."
Call us crazy, but we think UF has bigger problems to
worry about than whether one letter is capitalized or not.
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' deficit, UF's lack
of tuition and Billy Donovan's decision to stay or leave, to
name a few.
The goal of "graphic identity" consolidation The idea
that all UF logos, slogans and publications should be similar
enough to represent a unified university and this capital T
business comes across almost as propaganda. Sorry, UF, but
a clever slogan and some new signs do not make a quality
university.
Not to mention The fact that it's costing UF a pretty pen-
ny. Replacing signs, logos displayed on The university's ve-
Shides, business cards and letterheads is expensive, especially
for large departments that have hundreds of employees, all
of whom need new paraphernalia by Aug. 31.
The new identity and signature system, which was re-
leased in July, is less distinctive than The old one, which
featured The Florida seal. The seal is still used on official
documents and diplomas.
We can understand that UF wants a consistent look. If
every department has a different logo, maybe just maybe
UF would feel like less of a community ... ahem, nation.
But nit-picking about capital letters is just over The top.


SFCC shows UF up


The Gator Nation isn't
as all-encompassing
as it would like to be:
UF's Model U.N. team will
not attend the Third Annual
Global Forum in New York
City. But UF's little sister,
SFCC, will be there.
UF's team cited its prep-
aration for a September
conference as one reason
for not attending, but it
doesn't look good for our
university and The
Gator Nation when one
country is conspicuously
missing. So much for being
everywhere.
We can't help but smirk
a little every time we hear
SFCC is doing something
we aren't. Whether it's get-


ting involved with the city
- Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan
has said SFCC's student
leaders seem more active in
the community than UF's
- or representing SFCC on
a global scale, literally, at a
Model U.N. forum, it's nice
to show UF students that
others strive to be better.
UF may thing its the best
at everything (including
sports), but it can't get
complacent.
But at the same time, it's
nice to see SFCC students
step up to the plate. Many
of these students want
to transfer to UF, and we
hope they bring these high-
achieving qualities with
them.

Donovan's departure not the end


Disappointment. Sadness. Anguish. Friday, which is
usually a day of excitement and freedom, elicited
nothing more than these feelings from me and
Gators fans alike.
A phone call at the excruciating hour of 8 a.m. woke
me up. My well-meaning father informed me of Billy
Donovan's decision to leave UF for the Orlando Magic.
This presented a twofold problem. First, I lost precious,
much-needed sleep. Second, Donovan's possible depar-
ture crushed my hopes and dreams for another amazing
year of basketball.
It's bad enough that we lost good ol' Joakim Noah and
his ability to brighten our sporting events with his glori-
ous, yet horrifying, facial expressions. Now, no more Billy
Ball? So this is what a Seminole feels like hopeless and
lost.
I'm sure Gators fans felt dismay and displeasure with
Donovan's choice to leave UF, a place twice as magical
as Orlando. Though most fans expressed no feelings of
hatred or resentment, the sense of defeat and discourage-
ment loomed.
The Gator Nation lost its cool uncle who spoiled us
with back-to-back national championships. I mean, we
love Urban, but one exciting sport isn't enough to tide us
over.
If Donovan left, what would carry me through the
spring semester? No offense to baseball I just have a
short attention span.
As my throes of distress reached the level of a 2-year-
old throwing a temper tantrum, a moment of clarity sud-
denly struck me. I'm a Gators fan. There's a reason our
mascot isn't a big, fuzzy Billy Donovan.
Don't get me wrong. I love him and appreciate every-
thing he has accomplished at UF.
But wait. The world stopped turning, and the bas-


ketball gods intervened.
Donovan is reconsidering his
Decision and wants to back
out of his Magic contract.
Sure, Donovan's reconsid-
eration may inspire parades
Stephanie Rosenberg and keg parties. However, in
Stephaniehe midst of his fickleness, I
letters@alligator.org think it's a great time to re-
evaluate our "Gators fan"
status. What makes a true Gators fan?
A true Gators fan looks forward to every sport season.
We may have our favorite players and coaches, but that's
not why we attend games..
People sometimes forget that players and coaches come
and go, but the Gators fan base is not a fleeting thing.
There are no fair-weather fans in this town.
So whatever happens, we should all give our blessing
and move on. Plus, if the NBA offered any one of us an en-
chanting $5.5 million, I'm sure we would choose the same
path. Gators fans are loyal, but we're smart, too.
I would have advised fans to act the same way dur-
ing the Spurrier fiasco, too. Opposing teams don't fear
the coaches. The players contribute to intimidating at-
mospheres, but our fans' nationally recognized intensity
garnered this fear-inspiring reputation.
Let's not predict the fate of a team based on whether
Billy decides to stay or go. Don't throw those big foam
fingers away yet.
Don't waste your time crying over a possibly departed
coach. Donovan is great, but we're big Gators now, and it's
time to grow up. Save your energy after all, the Rowdy
Reptiles aren't for the faint of heart.

Letter to the Editor
Memorial Daytime for introspection
Dorothy Atkins' Thursday column was
a welcome respite from the heated, no-
you-are-the-problem sort of Iraq War fare
we see every day.
It's increasingly rare these days to come
across a thoughtful editorial that provokes
introspection rather than a knee-jerk reac-
tion on both sides of the debate.
Though I've been against the war since
the start, I've had to come to grips with
the fact that my best friend Jon has been
a soldier on the front lines for more than
two years. He has to make sure more of
his friends don't become casualties, which
I completely understand. Soldiers in this
war potentially sacrifice everything life,
limb and sanity for what they believe is
a worthy cause, and we must respect that
and hope they get home safely.
Memorial Day is a time to keep that in
mind and give them our best wishes. When
it comes to our feelings about the conflict,
we should take them to the people who put
the soldiers there in the first place.

Gainesville resident


Guest cc ht e ,

Don't hate Billy Donovan if he leaves


ive years, 10 years, 20 years from now,
I will look back at my time at UF and
say, "I was there when we won three
national titles in two years."
Without Billy. Donovan, you could
subtract two-thirds of that. Billy Donovan
didn't just build Gator basketball, he was
Gator basketball. Our program languished
before he lifted it into the stratosphere.
Back-to-back titles: what a joke. In this
age of teenage-mutant-multi-million-dol-
lar shoe contracts and the one-and-done
college basketball superstar, Billy Donovan
managed to find players who not only had
talent and fit his system, but who liked
school and each other enough to come
back after ascending the college basketball
mountain.
That's pretty special. No, that's unbe-
lievable. It's unfathomable, outstanding,
majestic. And that's why he deserves to
be sent off, not as some money-grubbing
sellout, but as a conquering hero.
What does Donovan have left to prove
at the collegiate level? What he did might
never again be accomplished. Billy is the
type of person who craves new challenges.
He wants to do things people say can't
be done. Why should he have to stick
around Gainesville and live in his own


Andrew Meyer Shadow? Because
Speaking Out other people want
him to become the
UF version of Coach
K? Because UF's first coaching legend,
Steve Spurrier, and Donovan's own men-
tor, Rick Pitino, got roughed up in the
pros?
"Every experience means something,
but I just don't believe the idea that Rick
Pitino or Steve Spurrier can't be successful
at the professional level," Donovan said.
"1 think it has more to do with the kind of
teams they have taken over.
"Did guys like Lon Kruger and Leonard
Hamilton really have a chance to win?
Were those situations where they really
had a chance? Could they really win there?
Remember that coach Pitino was very suc-
cessful with the Knicks before he went to
Kentucky. Rick Pitino and Steve Spurrier
can coach at any level. I really believe t~it,"
Donovan said.
I also believe that Pitino and Spurrier
can be successful in the pros. But Billy isn't
them. He's already proven he's smarter:
When the Memphis Grizzlies offered
Donovan $5 million a year, he didn't jump
at the first offer thrown his way. He as-
sessed the situation, realized the Grizzlies


were going nowhere in the West and
turned down the job.
The Orlando Magic? That's a different
story. They have perhaps the finest young
center in the NBA, Dwight Howard, and in
the East, that's enough of a starting place
for Donovan to begin making his mark.
As for the Gators, we'll be fine. No
doubt, the next coach will have huge shoes
to fill, but he will take over one of the
country's best programs. Donovan didn't
leave the cupboard bare, and Jeremy Foley
should be able to cherry-pick from the best
young coaches in the country.
Not that he has to look far. Former UF
assistant coach Anthony Grant just led
Virginia Commonwealth University to
the NCAA tournament, and current UF
assistant coach Larry Shyatt toughened up
the formerly soft Gators' defense. Either
would be a fabulous choice.
But no matter what happens, Gators
fans should be nothing but grateful. We
witnessed a team that, for my money,
should go down.as the greatest in college
basketball history. And for that, my hat
goes off to the man with the plan, the ar-
chitect of it all, the greatest coach in college
basketball: Billy Donovan.

King gets purple bow tie, suspenders at graduation


By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Writer
atan@alligator.org

Larry King gave them a speech.
They gave him a purple bow tie
with matching purple suspenders.
King, known internationally for
his CNN talk show "Larry King
Live," received the fashionable
pieces Saturday morning when he
gave the commencement speech
for Gainesville High School, whose


colors are purple and white, in the
O'Connell Center.
King said upon receiving them
that he would wear the special pur-
ple suspenders and bow tie when
there was a "suitable" guest. Before
receiving the accessories, King told
the graduating class the secret to
success.
"The only secret is there is no
secret," he said.
He also advised students to be
themselves and trust their instincts.


Linda Awbrey,
the school's- ac-
tivities coordina-
Stor, said finding
S purple suspend-
S ers and a match-
S ., ing.bow tie was
no easy task.
King GHS Principal
R. Wiley Dixbn
asked Awbrey to find purple sus-
penders to give King a little more
than a week before graduation.


It was his wife's idea, he added.
Kathy Dixon, Joseph A. Williams
Elementary School principal and
wife of Dixon, said she thought of it
because she always sees King wear-
ing suspenders.
"I thought that was his trade-
mark," she said.
Linda eventually found and or-
dered just the right accessories in a
catalog the school uses for ordering
its band uniforms.
On Tuesday, Linda called to


check on the suspenders but no one
answered. On Wednesday night, the
call finally came.
Awbrey asked for a pair of purple
suspenders without sequins.
The articles were at the school
when she returned from graduation
practice on Friday.
The suspenders, the bow tie and
the overnight shipping cost about
$36. On Monday night's Larry King
Live, King wore black suspenders
with a tie.


Sgt. Pepper's celebrates


* BEATLES EIGHTH ALBUM TURNED
40 SATURDAY.

By AMANDA DEL DUCA
Alligator Contributing Writer

On Saturday, music lovers celebrated the
40th anniversary of one of the most legendary
albums in popular music.
The Beatles' eighth album, Sgt. Pepper's
Lonely Hearts Club Band, is regarded by crit-
ics and fans as a turning point in rock and pop
music.
William McKeen, the professor and chair
of UF's Department of Journalism, remembers
the summer the album was released.
"My sister was always the Beatles fan in
the family, but when that album came out, she
didn't like it. She thought they were getting a


little weird," said McKeen, who teaches the
Rock 'n' Roll and American Society course
.at UF and also wrote a bio-bibliography on
The Beatles. "It was the first Beatles album I
bought."
The album was released in the United
States on June 2, 1967.
International That summer became
News known as the "Summer
of Love," a time marked
by psychedelic themes and spirituality
Over the past four decades, the album has
sold 11.7 million records, according to Rolling
Stone magazine. Even 40 years after its release,
the album still remains popular locally:
"Every time it comes in, it is hard to hold on
to," said Tom Cotsonas, an employee at Hear
Again CDs, a used records store on University
Avenue. "We can usually only keep it for a
week, maybe two."

mittee will choose a new book for
the coming year's program.
He added that the committee
next year might comprise more
students.
Kidder's book beat 19 others
considered for the 2007 to 2008
school year, Zdziarski said.
"This particular book offers
a variety of different themes we
thought were relevant and impor-
tant.to our students," he said. "It's
about how one individual can
make a difference in the world.
We focus on the idea of leadership
and service."
Hahn, who served on the
committee, said she spoke with
several universities that already
have similar reading programs,
including Clemson University,
Tulane University and Dartmouth
College.
When used in some of these
programs, the book became a
common staple because it en-
compasses several international
issues, such as medical ethics,
leadership, HIV and human
rights, Zdziarski said.
He said UF took its cue from
these ideas.


"One of the things the com-
mittee really focused on was,
'Let's not reinvent the wheel,'"
Zdziarski said. "This is a book
that's been used by over 35
schools in similar programs."
Carl Barfield, a professor of
entomology, said he gives all
Preview students a presentation
on faculty expectations each sum-
mer.
As about 6,600 new students
prepare to become Gators this
year, he said he reminds them that
their high school days are over.
"This is the first measure of
whether they will engage in this
institution or not," he said.
Barfield said he thinks about
half of the new students will read
the book.
Preview student Neda
Khosravani, 18, from Winter
Park, said the assignment initially
sounded like high school home-
work. But after discussing it with
other Preview friends, she thought
the program was a good idea, and
she plans to read the book.
"Our resumes are filled with so
many different things that we've
done," Khosravani said. "Yet this
will be one thing we have in com-
mon."

UF RESEARCH

Floridian tree tough to burn


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
With bark samples and plants scattered around the
room, UF botany professor Francis "Jack" Putz's office
looks more like a jungle. The 12-inch bark samples, thick
as Harry Potter books, are related to his latest project.
Putz said he believes he has found a potentially prof-
itable way to combat Florida's wildfire problem while
restoring its natural habitat.
The answer, he said, is an improved method of re-
viving Florida's native longleaf pine trees, which have
thick, fire-resistant bark.
Due to decades of suppressing natural fires, Florida
has developed thick, non-native forests of hardwood
tree species, such as laurel oaks, he said.
Hardwoods grow denser over time and provide fuel
for uncontrollable fires during droughts.
But Putz said these fires shouldn't always be viewed
in a negative light.
"People need to understand two misconceptions
about Florida," he said. "Dense forests are not part of
our natural habitat, and fire is necessary for good eco-
system management."
Florida's natural habitat should consist of longleafs in
patches throughout grasslands where fires burn slower
and less intensely.
Putz said removing hardwood trees, which crowd
and kill longleafs, has always been an expensive and


polluting process.
But after two years of research, he found a better way
to dispose of hardwoods in Florida.
Putz said hardwoods could be chipped and burned
in generators to provide electricity cleaner than burning
fossil fuels.
This solution could reduce greenhouse gasses from
large wildfires and fossil fuels, make fires easier to con-
trol, restore natural species and even make a profit, Putz
said.
"Environmentalists usually end up com-
plaining a lot. Instead of whining, we're
offering a solution."
Francis "Jack" Putz
UF botany professor

He added that UF students should care about this
problem because the frequency and severity of droughts
and fires will only increase in the future:
Mark Hainds, research coordinator for the Longleaf
Alliance, said Putz has a great idea for Florida.
The process is being used to restore longleafs in
Alabama, he said.
The alliance was founded in 1995 to restore these
trees throughout the Southeast and is based at Auburn
University.


Tax break welcome

By JESSICA CHASMAR
Alligator Contributing Writer
Home improvement stores all over Gainesville have been
busier than usual in response to the hurricane-preparedness
sales tax holiday.
The holiday started Friday, the first day of hurricane season,
and will last until June 12.
Gov. Charlie Crist approved the tax-free holiday to encour-
age state residents to buy essential hurricane
State supplies such as flashlights, batteries and por-
News table radios.
A sales clerk from The Home Depot, Oakley
Wells, said the store sold at least $50,000 in supplies Saturday.
"The best sellers are our generators," she said. "Flashlights
and batteries fall closely behind."
Though Lowe's employees were not able to disclose specific
sales information, Assistant Manager Krzysztof Rogowski said
his store was busy Saturday.
However, for many customers, it was Tropical Depression
Barry, rather than the tax relief, that got them into stores over
the weekend.
"It was Barry that made me think to start preparing," said
UF sophomore Eric Saulpaugh as he stocked up on tarps, rope
and batteries at The Home Depot on Sunday. "The tax holiday
was just an added bonus."

Grant caught in middle of Donovan situation


* THE VCU COACH IS A FORMER
UF ASSISTANT.

By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

While most of the effects of the
Billy Donovan saga are being felt in
Gainesville and Orlando, another
fan base has also been left unsure of
its coaching situation: supporters of
Virginia Commonwealth.
VCU head coach Anthony Grant -
who spent 10 years as an assistant to
Donovan at UF-- was considered the
front-runner to take over the Gators
basketball program until Donovan re-
portedly decided to replace himself.
At his introductory press confer-
ence with the Magic in Orlando on
Friday, Donovan gave a heartfelt en-
dorsement of his former assistant.
"The one guy I feel very, very
strongly about is Anthony Grant," he
said. "I think when you look at the
success we were able to have at Florida
over the last 11 years, he was-a very,
very strong instrument in that success
because he was there 10 of the 11 years
I was there."
On Friday, UF representatives re-
ceived permission from VCU to speak
with Grant. Saturday, the Richmond
Times-Dispatch reported that a plane
registered to UF arrived at Richmond
International Airport and left after
about 45 minutes, without Grant.
While it is unclear what took place
during those 45 minutes, Grant is-
sued a written statement saying he
never met with anyone from UF on


Saturday.
"I have been contacted by the
University of Florida regarding their
coaching vacancy," Grant said in the
statement. "I have not had any in-per-
son contact with any Florida represen-
tative nor have I been offered the job.
"At this point in time, I will have
no further comment on this situation,
as my focus is on my responsibilities
at VCU."
This came as a relief to Rams com-
mit Joey Rodriguez, a point guard and
high school teammate of UF recruits
Nick Calathes and Chandler Parsons.
"I'm just glad it's hopefully coming
to an end now and
S that I'll get my coach
at VCU," Rodriguez
said. "Coach Grant
s kta was a big reason why
Basketball we all decided to go
to VCU."
Grant recently signed an extension
at VCU that upped his base salary to
$400,000 per year after leading the
Rams to a 28-7 record and an appear-
ance in the NCAA Tournament.
Calls to Grant's Atlanta-based
agent, Mark Carmony, were not re-
turned.
With Donovan seeking a return to
UF, it looks as though Rodriguez and
the other 2007 commits can rest as-
sured that Grant will be back on the
bench in Richmond next season.
"I don't really think it's going to
bother him that much," Rodriguez
said. "I think he really loves VCU
and he wants to stay there too. But (if
Donovan returns to UF), this would
make his decision a lot easier."

visit in Gainesville with Billy over the
last 48 hours, and we have a commitment
from him that the dialogue between us
will continue."
Donovan was reportedly rushed into
S a decision by the Magic, and he began to
Regret his choice shortly after announcing
his departure from UF.
S- The situation is now in the hands

i/ to ESPN. The owner could opt to let
Donovan out of the contract with no
financial penalty or seek damages for
breach of contract.
Meanwhile, the Sentinel is reporting
that the Magic will release Donovan soon
S" and pursue former Miami Heat coach
Stan Van Gundy for the vacancy.
UF has yet to declare that it will wel-
come Donovan back and likely won't
address the issue until after the situation
with the Magic is resolved.
Friday, a smiling Donovan had proud-
ly announced he was accepting the NBA
job at an 11 a.m. press conference.
"The easy decision would have been
for me to stay at Florida," Donovan said
Friday morning. "Or I could take the next
step and do something that would really
challenge me as a person, as a coach, and
help me grow, help me get better."
During the conference, Donovan en-
dorsed Virginia Commonwealth coach
Anthony Grant a former UF assistant


- as a strong candidate for the UF job.
It was a different story as a teary-eyed
Donovan said his goodbyes to UF in a
Gainesville press conference hours later.
The emotional coach bid farewell to
members of the media and expressed
his grief over leaving Athletics Director
Jeremy Foley and UF President Bernie
Machen.
"The easy decision would have
been for me to stay at Florida."
Billy Donovan
UF basketball head coach

"I trust Jeremy Foley with my life
and I trust Dr. Machen with my life,"
Donovan said. "They are good people."
The coach, who had weeks ago agreed
in principle to an extension with UF but
had not signed the contract, insisted he
had not been planning to leave UF. He
cited the recent hiring of assistant coach
Rob Lanier, who left his job at Virginia
to join the Gators. Donovan also claimed
there was nothing UF could doto keep
him in Gainesville. "
Foley left for Virginia on Saturday
to interview Grant about the vacancy.
However, he was reportedly in Virginia
for less than an hour before returning to
Gainesville for an emergency meeting
with Donovan, who was beginning to
rethink his decision to leave.
No one from UF met with G~ent, the
VCU coach said in a statement Sunday.

UF claims top-10 finish at NCAA Championships


Gators fizzle after strong performance on day one


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Writer
At the 2007 NCAA Championships in
Williamsburg, Va., the UF men's golf team
found itself in a metaphor for its entire sea-
son.
The No. 6 Gators combined to shoot a 72-
hole total of 1133 (13 over par), landing in a
tie for ninth place 24 strokes behind the
NCAA Champions, No. 2 Stanford.
"At the beginning of the year, finishing in
the top-10 at the NCAA Championships was
a goal of ours," UF coach Buddy Alexander
said. "You obviously want to win a national
championship, but finishing in the top-10 of
such a great field is quite an accomplishment.
I'm proud of the way we battled and hung in
there this week."
The team was searching for its fifth
national title, and the road to the NCAA
Championships resembled the actual tourna-
ment in a lot of ways.
The trail began at the start of the season,
when no one knew what to expect from a
young Gators team.
An inexperienced squad devoid of leader-
ship and expectations, the Gators featured
seven freshmen and just one senior.
This was supposed to be a rebuilding year.
Right from the start, it was anything but.
The team began with a third place finish
at the Inverness Invitational, shocking a qual-


ity field.
Fast-forward to the NCAA
Championships, and the fifth-seeded Gators
would begin in surprising fashion as well.
The team opened with a 278 (2 under),
and finished the day tied in third.
Rewind back to the season, and the Gators
would spend the rest of the fall building mo-
mentum. The team finished in the top-five
in all of its matches, a start similar to that of
the 2003-04 team led by one of the program's
great players Camilo Villegas.
The fall gave rise to a new star in Camilo's
brother Manuel.
The junior notched three top-10 finishes in
his first five matches.
The spring began with a No. 1 ranking
and a win at the Gator Invitational. Villegas
would bring home the individual medal.
The rest of the season was never the same,
not for the Gators and especially not for
Villegas.
The team finished in the top-five only one
other time, and Villegas never finished higher
than a tie for 58th.
Back at the NCAA Championships, the
Gators in similar fashion as the regular
season would follow a strong start by
moving in the wrong direction.
On day two of the championships, the
Gators fired a 290 (10 over) and fell into a tie
for 11th place.
In the final round, the Gators carded a 285


(5 over), and their season would end tied for
ninth.
For Villegas, he started hot, opening the
tournament with a 70 (even), before having a
case of deja vu himself. He would dose with
an 80 (10 over) and tied for 64th.
The Gators were led by freshman Tim
McKenney, who finished with a 281 (one
over), good for a tie for 22nd.
"At the beginning of the year,
finishing in the top-10 at the NCAA
Championships was a goal of
ours. You obviously want to win a
national championship, but finish-
ing in the top-10 of such a great
field is quite an accomplishment.
I'm proud of the way we battled
and hung in there this week."
Buddy Alexander
UF coach

"I have to tip my cap to Tim McKenney,"
Alexander said. "To have a freshman be your
low guy and break par on three of the four
days is amazing. He got things going in the
right direction early in the week, and he was
able to come up with an impressive perfor-
mance."
Sophomore Toby Ragland had a success-


ful weekend as well, carding a total score of
282 (two over) and landing in a tie for 29th.
Fellow sophomore Billy Horschel was two
strokes behind with a 284 (4 over), and ended
tied for 35th.
Junior Tyler Brown would round out the
tournament with a 300 (20 over), where he
would finish 80th.
While the Gators experienced an up-and-
down season, they are comforted by the fact
that the team is filled with a great deal of
young talent.
The Gators will return all of their starters
next season.
"Any time you play at this level, it is a
learning experience," Alexander said. "These
guys got a lot out of playing today, and they
can carry that into next year.
"We've got everyone coming back, we've
got talented guys that we didn't even bring
on this trip and we've got a lot of good things
to look forward to. We'll take a few days to
rest, then we'll regroup and start all over
again."
.HORSCHEL HONORED: Billy Horschelhas been
named to the 10-player PING All-America
first team, the Golf Coaches Association of
America has announced.
He finished the year ranked fourth in the
Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index, while
his schedule was rated the nation's toughest
by the same publication.
This is his second time receiving the honor
in as many years.

Parsons: I only want to play for Donovan


RECRUIT, from page 20


like a dream come true. He's the only coach I want to play
for, and now it looks like I'm going to."
However, with all of the rumors that have been circu-
lating over the last few days, the players aren't ready to
accept this one as truth just yet.
"I don't know what to think," Lucas said. "You really
don't want to get too excited and get your feelings hurt
again. I've just got to wait and see what happens."
If Donovan does return, the prized recruits will suit up
in the O'Connell Center next season.
"That's who recruited me and who I committed to my
sophomore year," said Nick Calathes, a high school team-
mate of Parsons and a fellow UF commit.'
As of Monday night, Lucas, Parsons and Calathes said
they still had not been contacted by Donovan or UF of-


ficials on the matter.
It is UF policy not to comment on coaching situations
until the matter is resolved.
For Lucas, Donovan's move was especially hard, as
the 5-foot-10 point guard from Bellaire, Texas, was the last
to commit to the Gators.
S He had also expressed a strongdesire
to play with friend Patrick Patterson,.
but a few days after Lucas' announce-
Men's ment, the forward chose Kentucky over
Basketball UF, citing a fear of Donovan heading to
the NBA as a key reason.
When Donovan appeared to be
headed for the Magic, Patterson called Lucas with an I-
told-you-so message, but if the coach returns, Lucas says
he will have a retort for his buddy.
"Yeah, I most likely will," he said. "I'll tell him it's not
that easy to knock The Kid' off the throne."


Coach draws comparisons to Nick Saban


FANS, from page 20


found out, I called all my friends and
told them the news."
While some Gators fans
were miffed at Donovan leaving
Gainesville in the first place, most
seemed to have understood.
"I was surprised," Jackson said.
"But at the same time, it seemed like
a good time to break. He won two
national championships. You can't
really get higher unless you are go-
ing for some kind of John Wooden or
Adolph Rupp record."
But just because Gators basketball
fans are excited Donovan is coming
back, it doesn't mean they don't feel
some sympathy for Orlando Magic
fans, long plagued with bad trades,
free-agent signing and draft picks.


"I feel bad for the 200 fans who
bought season tickets the minute
he announced he was going there,"
Wright said. "But other than that, not
really"
Jackson doesn't exactly feel the
same way.
"They've got plenty of money,"
'he said. "They
can buy someone
else."
Magic fans ob-
viously don't have
warm feelings for
Donovan, dubbing
him "Billy Liar-
Donovan von" among other
things on online
message boards.
Donovan has also been criticized
on Web sites and television and radio
shows across America.
A few message boards have lik-


ened the UF head coach to former
Miami Dolphins coach and current
Alabama coach Nick Saban.
Saban earned the ire of Miami
sports fans earlier this year, when he
left the Dolphins to coach Alabama
after spending nearly a month deny-
ing rumors he was negotiating with
the Crimson Tide.
But most of the students inter-
viewed don't consider Donovan an-
other Saban and would be happy to
have "Billy Ball" back in Gainesville
for the time being.
Senior Johnny Bell felt the team
could still be successful even without
Donovan.
But he still prefers having the two-
time national champion as coach.
"I think if" they got Anthony
Grant, it would have been the same
level of coaching," he said. "But it
doesn't hurt to have the man back"


NICK-EL, from page 20

And he'd have a ton of cap
room -to go after supporting talent.
Oh yeah, there are also 27 million more reasons. *
An opportunity like this will likely never come again
for Donovan. He's got to make up his mind right now
between college4life and a pro job.
I can only fault Donovan for one thing in this whole
process: the way he handled the Jai Lucas situation:
Lucas, .a McDonald's All-American point guard,
waited until the final days of the signing period to inr
with Florida.
The Houston product said Donovan assured him he
wasn't going anywhere.
So how was Lucas supposed to feel when he watched
Donovan shake hands with Otis Smith?
How was he supposed to feel when he arrived in
Gainesville and the man who was supposed to teach him
his professional craft wasn't going to be there?
Upset. Angry.
Betrayed.
Like Donovan's decision, Lucas' will impact the rest of
his life, as he likely hopes to play pro basketball like his
father, former NBA player and coach John Lucas, and his
brother, former Oklahoma State guard John Lucas III.
I hope this is one of the reasons Donovan reconsid-
ered.
And how should UF students react if Donovan indeed
returns to Gainesville?
Relieved.
Imagine what could have happened to this program.
Recruits could have bailed left and right in a year when
they desperately need fresh talent to replace the departed
champions.
The Gators could have been set back for years with a
new coach and a gaunt bench.
Welcome back, Billy.

Likely return


calms recruits

By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

It appears that the Billy Donovan roller-coaster
ride may finally be coming to a halt, leaving its pas-
sengers right back where they started.
After the UF coach seemingly departed
Gainesville for good in favor of the Orlando Magic,
recruits, coaches and fans were left asking, "What's
next?"
"I was excited to come to Florida and
play for the defending national champi-
ons and Coach Donovan, and when he
left, it hurt."
Jai Lucas
UF recruit


Now that Donovan is trying to return to the
Gators, the affected parties will try to pick up where
they left off before the coach's surprising decision.
"I was excited to come to Florida and play for the
defending national champions and Coach Donovan,
and when he left, it hurt," said Jai Lucas, a member of
the Gators' 2007 recruiting class.
"Now that he's talking about coming back, it
brings everything back the way it was for me."
While neither the Magic nor Donovanhas released
a statement ensuring that the coach will return to UF,
several reports have indicated that Donovan will be
released from the contract he signed on Friday.
SThizcomes as great news to the Gators recruits,
who were left feeling uneasy after one of the
main factors in their college decision Donovan
- skipped town.
"When he decided to go to the NBA, I was re-
ally upset," said Chandler Parsons, a forward from
Winter Park, Fla. "He was a big reason why I com-
mited to Nicole Safker/ Alligator Staff

UF fans relieved following wild weekend


* DONOVAN IS TAKING HEAT
FROM THE NATIONAL MEDIA.

By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer
aweintraub@alligator.org

Last weekend, it seemed almost fitting
that Tropical Storm Barry was inundating
the UF campus with rain the same day that
UF men's basketball coach Billy Donovan
was in Orlando accepting the head coach-
ing position for the Magic.
But as the weekend went on, and the


skies cleared, so too have the spirits of UF
basketball fans.
Only days after signing the contract,
Donovan is rumored to be trying to return
to UF, much to the de-
light of Gators fans.
"It's great," said Clint
Wright, a fourth-year
Men's pre-pharmacy major.
"It's good for college bas-
Basketball ketball in general because
you don't see too many
guys like Mike Krzyzewski or Bob Knight,
who run a program for along time.
"Now that he's come back, I think he's


proven his allegiance to UF"
'Many UF fans around campus ex-
pressed similar sentiments.
For them, Donovan would be wel-
comed back with open arms, even after his
brief stay in Orlando.
Senior accounting major Nicole
Domenech expressed similar feelings.
"I am so happy he's coming back," she
said. "I was devastated when I heard that
he had left. He has meant so much to the
program.
"But now I'm really excited. When I

Unfortunately, I'm stuck in the mid-
South without a remote control to tune
in.

Nick Zaccardi his decision.
Nick-el Coverage This is the most
nzaccardi@alligator.org important choice
he will make for
the rest of his life,
and he's got to make sure he makes the
right one.
I admire him for taking an ego hit and
admitting he made a mistake.
It took guts for Billy to pick up his
phone and find Jeremy Foley on his con-
tact list again.
It took even more guts for him to call
the Magic back and say thanks, but no
thanks.
If only Steve Spurrier or Rick Pitino
had the same second thoughts, they
would have saved themselves a lot of
embarrassment.
But Billy's got to wonder, if not now,
when will I go to the NBA?
The Magic job seemed like the perfect
situation from the outside.
He wouldn't have to move his family
far, if at all.
He'd have a decent franchise with one
of the most talented young studs in the
league.
