Machen draws heat for disputed comments


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

UF President Bernie Machen continues to
deny accusations that he called agriculture "a
dying industry in the state of Florida" in the
wake of impending budget cuts to UF depart-
ments, including its agricultural institute.
Still, the comments attributed to Machen,


quoted by an online farming newspaper, have
lawmakers and farmers up in arms.
Farm & Ranch News published a story
on Feb. 5 reporting that Machen would cut
faculty members from its Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences, reduce courses offered
by the institute and close some extension offic-
es, which are in at least every Florida county.
Machen was quoted as saying that agricul-
ture is "not worthy of the investments being


made by the Legislature."
In a statement released Monday, Machen
wrote that he did not make the comments.
After unreturned
UF phone calls, George
Administration Parker Jr., the news-
paper's publisher,
wrote in an e-mail
that he stands by the story and has no other
comments.


Machen wrote in the e-mail that budget-cut
plans have not been finalized. In his statement,
he wrote that he plans to make targeted reduc-
tions in programs, including IFAS, instead of
across-the-board cuts.
Machen wrote in his statement that he is
committed to supporting agriculture because

Students speed date


to find valentines


By ELIZABETH LEVA
Alligator Contributing Writer

During the final seconds before
the big moment, Mohit Pohani said
he was nervous but confident.
Finally, the first gong sounded:
show time.
As Pohani locked eyes with the
stranger before him, he took a deep
breath and performed the tactic he
had rehearsed.
"I'm Mohit. Nice to meet you,"
said the UF microbiology senior.
Pohani was one of about 100
people who attended I RUB You,
a Valentine's Day-themed speed-
dating event at the Orange & Brew
W wednesday night.
The Reitz Union Board, known
as RUB, sponsored the event. The
student group provides free public
entertainment events nearly every
weeknight.
The young men rotated seats


around the room to have three-
minute conversations with women
seated at various stations.
Natalie Andres, RUB president
and an advertising and English
senior, made index cards listing
questions such as, "Who was your
first boyfriend or girlfriend?" and
"What's the dumbest thing you've
ever done?" for contestants to use
in the event of a conversation lull.
Between rounds, the ladies fixed
their hair. Guys waiting to rotate in
munched on pretzels and cookies
in the corner.
Michelle Bowen, exercise physi-
ology senior, and Paige Granger,
tourism recreation and sport man-
agement junior, came to the event
together.
They doubted they'd find love
and came with intentions of just
being each other's Valentines.
They left the same way.

Clinton battles social expectations in presidential race


* WOMEN HELD TO DIFFERENT
STANDARDS, EXPERTS SAY.

By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kga llagher@alligator.org

It's been almost 90 years since women
won the right to vote, and though Hillary
Clinton is emerging as a strong contender for
the Democratic presidential nomination, her
campaign is showing that women still face


political challenges.
"It's very difficult for women to emerge as
leaders and still maintain the cultural expecta-
tions of what being a woman is," said Clare
Giesen, executive director of the National
Women's Political Caucus.
Trysh Travis, a UF women's studies assis-
tant professor, said powerful women walk a
fine line between being considered liked and
competent. Competence is usually thought of
as the ability to make tough decisions, master
large amounts of knowledge and be competi-
tive, Travis said.


"I think for a woman to display those

F to downplay some of the
S qualities people typically
associate with likability in
women," Travis said, such
as being nice, accommodat-
ing or thoughtful.
By emphasizing her
Clinton competence, Giesen said,
Clinton can sometimes
come off as cold or one-dimensional.
"She seems less like the person you want to


have lunch with and more like the senator in
office that cares about policy," she said.
Both Giesen and Travis said they had ob-
served or read that Clinton is a warm person
in private. But that aspect of her personality
can get lost when she emphasizes her experi-
ence in public.
It's not uncommon for a public figure
- male or female - to highlight certain per-
sonality aspects for the cameras, Travis said.

City workers accidentally
cut gas line; no one injured
City workers accidentally cut a
gas line Tuesday near Southwest
11th Street and Southwest Sixth
Avenue.
"They dug into some roots
and the roots that they dug up
were also extended and wrapped
around a nearby gas line," said
Gainesville Regional Utilities
spokesman Dan Jesse.
Because of what Jesse called
a "low risk" that the gas could
ignite, firefighters stood by while
GRU repaired the damage.
"There was no danger because
the fire department had it roped
off so you didn't have people get-
ting too dose," Jesse said. Since the
gas line was just a service line and
not a main line, the neighborhood
did not lose service. Only one resi-
dence was evacuated while GRU
workers made their repairs.
No one was injured. When nat-
ural gas escapes it blows straight
up and quickly dissipates, Jesse
said, making it improbable that the
gas could ignite. Natural gas is not
poisonous, so it is not harmful.

Distance challenges couples


8 EXPERTS, COUPLES STRESS THE
IMPORTANCE OF COMMUNICATION.

By CRISTIN COMISKEY
Alligator Contributing Writer

Last Valentine's Day, Curt Siegmeister high-
lighted all the words in a Merriam-Webster
dictionary that reminded him of his girlfriend
and renamed the dictionary "All the Words that
Remind Me of You."
He set up a candlelit dinner with two cham-
pagne glasses filled with her favorite drink, green
tea, and burritos from their favorite place to eat,
Moe's Southwest Grill.
However, this year, Siegmeister and his
girlfriend, Amanda McDonald, will be apart on
Valentine's Day.
Siegmeister, a finance sophomore at UF, and
McDonald, a marketing sophomore at Florida
State University, have been in a relationship for
four years, two of which have been long distance.
They're not alone.
By the time students finish college, about 60
percent to 80 percent will have had a long-distance
relationship, explains Dr. Gregory T. Guldner
in his book "Long Distance Relationships: The
Complete Guide."
The 19-year-olds said communication has
been the key to their long-distance relationship.
Four years after their first date, they still talk on
the phone three to four times a day.
"Sometimes, I get the most precious little
love messages of Curt professing his love to me
while I'm in class," McDonald said in a phone
interview.
It does not matter whether a couple spends
Valentine's Day together, said Kim McCall, UF
professor of interpersonal communications. A
commitment to each other and constant commu-
nication is what matters, she said.
For example, McDonald and Siegmeister take
turns making the two-hour drive to visit each
other about twice a month.
"It's kind of fun being in a long-distance re-
lationship," McDonald said. "When he's here, I
get to show him off to my friends, and when I'm
there, he gets to show me off to all his friends."
McDonald started her second year at FSU on
the wrong foot when she realized accounting was
not the right major for her. Siegmeister would


console her over the phone.
One night after crying on the phone with him,
McDonald heard a knock at her door and was
surprised to see Siegmeister standing before her.
He had driven to Tallahassee to give her a kiss,
even though he had to drive back that same night
to go to class the next morning.
"Sometimes I feel like our relationship is a little
fairy tale," McDonald said, "and that you have to
pinch me to wake me up."
For some couples, long-distance relationships
can be challenging. Making it work takes unlimit-
ed text messaging and free nights and weekends,
said Anthony Bonaventure, a UF alumnus who
lives in Miami.
Bonaventure averages eight calls a day with
his girlfriend, Farida Reyes, a public health
graduate student at UE
"Sometimes I feel like our relation-
ship is a little fairy tale and that you
have to pinch me to wake me up."
Amanda McDonald
UF sophomore

"Once, I broke my phone, and I thought my
world was going to end," he said in a phone in-
terview.
Bonaventure's job keeps the couple separated
by about 10 county lines. He works as an assis-
tant video coordinator for Florida International
University's football team. But while work and
school keep the couples separated on special occa-
sions, neither is worried about their relationship.
"It's going to be a little bit depressing, but
it won't affect the strength of our relationship,"
Bonaventure said.
However, distance proved to be an obstacle
when the 23-year-olds, who recently celebrated
their four-year anniversary, had to weather a few
storms. In November, Reyes suffered a heart at-
tack and Bonaventure was 350 miles away.
"It was pretty nerve-racking because I'm so
used to being there for her and being her protec-
tor," he said.
He sent her a dozen yellow roses - a change
from his traditional red bouquet - and told.her
over the phone that everything would be OK.
"He's everything that any girl could ask for.
He's amazing," Reyes said, smiling. "I would say
he's perfect, but I don't want it to go to his head."

federally funded and required to promote
agricultural research and extension offices.
Farm & Ranch News has since encour-
aged agriculture supporters across the state
to write letters to Machen urging him not
to cut IFAS funds more than other UF pro-
grams.
The presidents office has received more
than 30 letters since Monday, a few of which
are dated before the news-
paper's issue went online,
according to copies of the
letters.
Letters came from
citrus growers, ranch-
ers, sugar cane growers,
Florida senators and Ben
Machen Hill Griffin III, son of UF
football stadium's name-
sake and citrus grower Ben Hill Griffin Jr.
State Reps. Debbie Boyd, D-Newberry,
and Bryan Nelson, R-Apopka, met with
Machen on Friday to express their concerns
about the reported comments.
Boyd said Machen was noncommittal
about which aspects of IFAS will receive the
most cuts, but he indicatedin a letter sent lat-
er to the representatives that UF is interested
in "making programmatic cuts that minimize
the impact on education and research."


Battling Different Expectations
Americans expect men to be compe-
tent and women to be likable, but a female
presidential candidate needs to be both,
Travis said.
According to a July CBS News and
New York Times poll, 67 percent of reg-
istered voters think women are held to a
different standard than men in politics.
Stephanie Seguin, president of
Gainesville Area National Organization
for Women, said she has heard Clinton at-
tacked for her ankles, clothes and hair.
"Nobody talks about John McCain
or Mike Huckabee and how stupid their
haircut is or their beer gut hanging over
their belt," Seguin said.
Michael Martinez, a UF associate
political science professor, said voters in
primaries often determine choices based
on likability, experience or the candidate's
chances in the general election.
In New Hampshire, where Clinton
won by a narrow margin, CNN exit polls
showed people who voted based on issues
tended to vote for Clinton.
Those who considered personal quali-
ties to be more important tended to vote
for Barack Obama.

Convincing the Skeptics
Debbie Walsh, executive director of the
Center for American Women and Politics,
said that to be treated seriously, Clinton
has to be extra prepared and knowledge-
able - sometimes over-prepared.
"It's not as though there are a lot of role
models for her of how to do this," Walsh
said. "She's really forging new territory


here."
Clinton is not the first woman to run
for president, Walsh said, but she is the
first who could feasibly win.
Giesen said though people have seen
women run for office before - as mayors,
senators or representatives - seeing one
run for the presidency is different.
"You're the leader of the free world, or
at least you say you are," Giesen said. "It's
going to take a long time for people to get
comfortable with that."
The same people who might vote for a
female mayor, she said, could be uncom-
fortable with a female president.
"I don't know that it's prejudice so
much as the emergence of a new status for
women," she said. "Any time you inflict
change on a culture, people balk."
Even women can be uncomfortable
with Clinton, Giesen said.
"It's everything your mom told you
not to be," she said.
But UF's Martinez said that just be-
cause some voters are uncomfortable with
Clinton doesn't mean they wouldn't vote
for a different female candidate.
"Hillary Clinton is a very polarizing
figure," he said.

Inspiring Other Women
But for many women, Giesen said,
Clinton has been a role model. Giesen
thinks that is one of the reasons Clinton
has done well in polls of older women,
who grew up with fewer opportunities.
"She says what I wish I'd thought to
say, the things I wish I had the courage to
say," Giesen said.
Walsh said many women feel a sense of
solidarity in voting for Clinton.

Clinton became emotional or faced heck-
lers who chanted, "Iron my shirt," in-
creased voter support among women, she
said. But for the United States to become
comfortable with women in higher posi-
tions, she said, more women need to run
in local elections - something that has
been decreasing in the past five years.
Only 34 percent of women who took
the LSAT "definitely" or "probably"
planned to run for office someday, in com-
parison to 52 percent of men who took the
test, according to a 2008 Kaplan poll.
Walsh said she looks to governors and
senators for future presidential candidates
- but there are currently only eight fe-
male governors and 16 female senators.
In addition, she said, one of those
would have to want the position and be
capable of raising funds.
After Clinton, she doesn't expect to
see another female presidential candidate
for a while. Female candidates will prob-
ably be sporadic before they gradually
increase, she said.
Travis said structural prejudices, such
as lack of convenient day care or lenient
work schedules, make it difficult for most
women to advance in their careers as far as
Clinton has, she said.
"Clinton has been very lucky, very
privileged and also very strategic in the
way she has run her life," she said.
Seguin said she thought if Clinton were
elected president, she might address some
of those issues that prevent women from
achieving their goals.
She said she hopes Clinton inspires
other women to run for president.
"I think she really has a goal, and she
really has pride in the historic moment
she's creating," she said.

Liberal Hearts

College in search of

caring, responsible dean
F's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences needs a lot
of help and emotional support this Valentine's Day.
Watching all these other colleges get deans can't
be easy, you know, even if you did just get five Fulbright
scholars.
Since the College of Journalism and Communications
has rekindled an old flame with John Wright - and though
CLAS has tried really hard to be happy for its neighbor on
Stadium Road - it can't help feeling a little lonely on this
day of love.
So, today we help our disheartened friend and put out a
request for a new match-up to lead the largest college at'UF
into a much brighter future.
There's no better time than now for the college to just put
itself out there and find somebody to share it's future with
in the 21st century.
But, we have to admit - it has definitely been an ex-
hausting process.
The dean scene is not exactly the sexiest thing on a col-
lege campus.
And when you've got more than 12,000 undergraduate
students and 2,000 graduate students to consider, this deci-
sion just isn't as carefree as it used to be. Not to mention
that the more than 700 faculty members will probably want
to voice their experienced opinions, too.
The things CLAS needs in a dean are also especially
demanding - an earned doctorate, an excellent record of
academic leadership and administrative experience, and a
distinguished record of academic, teaching and research
achievements.
These just aren't the kind of things you'll find during a
speed date.
We know that Provost Janie Fouke said the new dean
should focus on getting to know the college and its
strengths and weaknesses, once he or she is chosen, but we
feel like any prospective candidate should be aware of all
the baggage CLAS brings to the table from the beginning.
This just proves that CLAS knows you can't start off a
healthy relationship by withholding the truth - and that
the new dean must be equally open and honest.
The ideal prospective dean should take the time to
realize that though CLAS has been hurt in the past - spe-
cifically by a budget-cutting, Harley-riding bad boy - deep
down inside, it has a lot to offer.
It's probably also important for the new dean to realize
that, yes, CLAS has had some significant money problems
in the past.
But, it has been trying so hard to get rid of that embar-
rassing debt from a couple of years ago. And there's been
some progress. By watching every penny, the college ex-
pects to be back in black by next year.
How's that for demonstrated perseverance and stabil-
ity?
Back in October, Student Body Vice President Vanessa
Goodwin, the only student on the 10-member search com-
mittee, said a focus on diversity and a desire for friendliness
are some of things students are looking for in a new dean.
But CLAS also needs someone who is open to new ideas
and realizes that all the students he or she is entrusted with
are dependent on good, strong decision-making abilities.
So despite its problems, CLAS would be an excellent
place for any university leader to make an impact on a wide
range of students at a large college campus.
We have a lot of hope that when the search committee
begins interviewing semifinalists later this week, they'll
know how to pick the right one.
And perfect dean, we just know you're out there.

~i ri,


Valentine's Day couldbe worse

Valentine's Day could be worse


thought this would be the easiest column I'd ever have
to write.
I have actually been looking forward to it since I
realized that Valentine's Day fell on a Thursday this year.
Bashing the "Hallmark holiday" is one of my favorite
pastimes.
However, while it would be simple for me to sit here
and type out all the reasons why I despise this superficial
day, I'm sure you've heard it all before.
So let's try to be positive, shall we?
Let's see ... good things about Valentine's Day ... I
know there's got to be something.
Ah, yes. Strawberries.
I love them. You love them, right?
They're red. They're sort of heart-shaped.
They go nicely with wine and chocolate.
Aphrodisiac? Maybe.
Publix shelf-clearing tactic? Definitely.
Don't you love how the fruit, which is usually sitting in
plastic containers next to its buddies, the blueberries and
raspberries, is now moved to the front of the store?
I guess the grocers don't want you to forget to buy
some sensual produce before you put the moves on your
date tonight.
Because, of course, kiwi is much too exotic - and a
banana would just be way too obvious.
Which brings me to my next observation, lubricant.
Come on, I can't help it.
Please tell me you have been watching TV enough over
the past two weeks to witness the endless KY commercials
with the couple who fornicates for a good 24 hours.
I really doubt that the self-warming oil has any such
benefits.
And what about the body lotion companies trying to
compete, such as Nivea's "Touch and Be Touched" cam-
-paign?
Any lotion called "Smooth Sensation" has got to be fly-
The views expressed here are not

glorious day is how people think
it's suddenly appropriate to pair

letters@alligator.org If it doesn't look good during
the other 364 days out of the year,
I've got news for you - it doesn't
look good today. But hey, if you can pull it off, then kudos
to you. I must not have the right complexion.
And how could I forget my other personal favorite on
this day - candy.
I really think we need another excuse - besides
Christmas, Halloween, Easter, birthdays, Tuesdays and
Flag Day-to rot our teeth out of our mouths.
It's just a little box of every kind of chocolate imagin-
able, no big deal.
You know you will bite into one, see the coconut or
orange-looking substance and put that sucker right back
in its spot.
Hey, dark chocolate has antioxidants. See, there's
something for everyone.
I'm really not that cynical, and I don't blame the card
companies for forcing this holiday upon us.
I'll admit that I enjoy a nice, sappy greeting card writ-
ten by someone other than the person who signs "love" at
the bottom.
And yes, I probably will get flowers delivered - from
my mom.
See, there are a ton of positive things to look forward to
today. But maybe you should wait until tomorrow before
you ask me what they are.

Letters to the Editor
34th Street memorial not untouchable
Torey Greenwald's letter to the editor on
Wednesday was well intentioned but, ulti-
mately, wrong.
The 34th Street Wall commemorating the
lives lost to Danny Rolling is no more sacred
than anything else posted to the wall by citi-
zens. For many years it has enjoyed an un-
tarnished place on the wall while residents
have chosen to respect it.
This appears to not be the case any
longer. I know this sentiment may be un-
popular, but what do 20-year-old students
care about the lives of five people who were
struck down while they were infants?
It isn't as though these victims died he-
roically or valiantly in the process of saving
lives or some other equally respectable way.
Should we make a mural to those who
were struck down by drunken drivers?
Being murdered doesn't warrant an eternal
memorial on an ever-changing surface.
The reality is the wall is alive and it is
meant for the living. Too long we've tiptoed
around the memory of ghosts whose true
contribution was nil.
Besides, they've already got their names
on those palm trees. Respect them by mov-
ing on.

Gainesville resident




Court decision ignores will of students
The UF Supreme Court has rendered its
decision on online voting and in the pro-


cess, denigrated the signatures of 5,700 UF
students.
By flouting the will of the student body,
the court has rejected the idea of representa-
tive democracy and imposed a dictatorship
of the few over the many.
In 2006, 85 percent of voters supported
the idea of implementing online voting in
Student Government elections.
Over the last four months, 12 percent of
the student body pledged their signature
to a petition mandating online voting in
Student Government elections.
Four unelected justices should not be
able to circumvent the voice of the students
at UF. Students have spoken, and they over-
whelmingly want online voting.
The court claims online voting endan-
gers fundamental principles of democracy
enshrined in the federal, state and UF con-
stitutions.
Rather than lecturing the students on
violations of fundamental principles of de-
mocracy, the court should aim to not commit
these flagrant transgressions themselves.
Mark McShera
Orange and Blue Party chairman

Online voting won't change elections
I'm not going to discuss whether online
voting is constitutional or unconstitutional,
but I think it is important to discuss why
proponents of online voting want this form
of voting to happen.
As stated in Wednesday's front-page ar-
ticle, people supporting online voting think
it would double voter turnout - which it
probably would - and many current sena-


tors would not have been elected.
In other words, online voting would
cause drastic changes in the outcomes of the
elections.
I find this belief to be further from the
truth.
Actually, online voting would probably
solidify that the same party wins each se-
mester.
Elections are won by parties full of deter-
mined leaders, candidates and volunteers
who share the same purpose.
Elections are won by individuals who
are organized, unwavering and steadfast.
Simply changing a voting process will not
change any of the outcomes in any election
- unless all of your party's support is from
the laziest people on campus.
The only thing that can change the out-
comes in elections is experience, hard work,
determination and creativity.
I'm sorry for those of you who think
online voting is the golden key to your prob-
lems because it's not going to unlock any
door you want to get through.
Michael Ramsey
student senator

Online voting threatens SG monopoly
It was truly one of the most amazing feats
of political hubris and hypocrisy that the UF
Supreme Court could, with a straight face,
declare voting over the Internet "unconsti-
tutional."
How can voting over the Internet be more
subject to coercion than, say, being at a frat
or sorority dinner and having the president


say "you better vote tomorrow and here is
who we are voting for?"
It is pretty common knowledge that the
Greek-dominated SG fears that Internet vot-
ing would threatent their monopolistic hold
on UF student politics, and that the court
would use any rationale possible to hold
onto their hegemonic position.
Even if Internet voting was a reality, you
can bet SG would do everything in its power
to suppress voter turnout because the less
the rest of us care, the more power and con-
trol they will retain.
Scott Erker

SG elections are worth trip to poll
I've been a student on campus for two
years now, and I vote in elections because
I feel they're important and that at least
SG does accomplish some things for the
students.
In response to Wednesday's front-page
article, to all online-voting protesters and
the Orange and Blue Party, I have to put my
foot down.
As a concerned student, I insist that SG
and the people up for elected positions are
absolutely worth the trip to a voting booth
in the Reitz Union, Turlington Plaza or
wherever else.
The Orange and Blue Party is preaching
to an empty audience, and the way we vote
pales in comparison to who we elect.
It claims it is speaking for the entire stu-
dent body, but I must disagree.
Online voting is not the answer.

DATING, from page 1

came because of the novelty of a
speed-dating experience.
"It's something everyone has
heard of but not many people have
ever done," she said.
Freshmen Wesley Heim and
C.D. Thomell came to the Orange
& Brew on Wednesday night to
eat Taco Bell and watch the Gators
basketball game on a big screen be-
hind the chatty speed daters.
Helm said he didn't expect such
entertainment.
"Dude, look at that guy's body
language," Thomell said to Helm
about one participant. "He is so


nervous."
Helm also noted that many
attendees decided to have a beer
during conversations.
"If I was doing this, I think I
would need one.too," he said.
At the end of the
On event, Pohani said his
Campus nerves calmed and he
was glad he came.
"Everyone clicked," he said. "I

my same major.'

he left with some new friends, a
study buddy and even a phone
number.

$exual $e&uction


Adult store


opens female


sexuality

MARGARET FRANCOIS I
AVENUE WRITER

Love is in the air - and it
smells like Naughty Cravings
Body Butter.
This Valentine's Day, it's all
about "the romance of seduc-
tion," said Mary Jane Brunel,
owner of French Addiction linge-
rie store. She's not just speculat-
ing either.
Brunel has seen her store's
traffic increase and her inventory
decrease as edible body lotion
and lingerie "flew out the door,"
she said.
"[Valentine's Day] is really
a great holiday for me because
people come here that are an-
ticipating a hot date," she said.
"And they dress the part."
No matter whom you are
shopping for, anything you need
to steam up the night is here.
Everything from barely-there
panties and 6-inch patent-leather
stilettos to gourmet flavored lo-
tions and oils, sex toys and kama
sutra books.
Walking into the intimate but
conspicuously decorated shop,
red and gold walls pop out at
you along with all things lace,
satin and faux fur.
Somehow, it makes you feel
naughty and innocent simultane-
ously.
Brunel said she intentionally
chose the color and decor of the
store to set a sexually stimulating
atmosphere.
"Gold and barn-red are a won-
derful combination for passion,"
she said.
In contrast to other lingerie
shops in the area, her store cre-
ates a very open and friendly
atmosphere that specializes in
catering to customer needs, bru-
nel said.
"My niche market is for a
woman who requires and de-
serves personal assistance, and
there isn't any other place you
can go and get help with your

particular figure and your price
range," she said. "All this figures
into what we show to our cus-
tomers, and we stay with them
until they find something they're
happy with."
But women, in general,
don't really appreciate their
bodies, she said.
To change that, she gets
them into sexy lingerie that
can hide the parts they don't
like and show off the parts
they do. She said she does
this because there's a high
point to every body.
For more than 20 years
her store has brought a sense of
sexual openness to Gainesville,
an attitude Brunel learned in her
youth.
"When I grew up, as a hippie
I spent a lot of time in Europe,"
she said. "I'm pretty into the
European attitude toward sexu-
ality, which is a lot healthier than


we get here where we think. it's
dirty and something you should
be ashamed of."
At the time she opened the
store, Brunel was married to
a French man and they talked


I'm pretty into the
European attitude to
ward sexuality.

Mary Jane Brunel
Lingerie store owner


about importing merchandise
from France.
"We carry merchandise de-
signed from French lingerie, but
actually French lingerie isn't
viable in the market because a
bra sells for $100," she said. "In
France it's nothing to spend a
couple hundred dollars for a


bra and panties, but here people
expect to get at least six or seven
outfits for that price."
To give people what they
want, French Addiction's prices
range from about $20 to $60.
Most people can afford
it, she said and it's worth
it "especially if you're plan-
ning a hot date with your
- boyfriend."
Gabby Keane, a store
employee, said that custom-
ers have more of a personal,
individual experience too,
as opposed to a sex shop
where you buy what you
need and leave.
While shopping, customers
are usually assisted by Brunel
or a worker, like Keane, and are
given undivided attention.
The goal is for no one to leave
empty-handed or dissatisfied,
Keane said.
Another service Brunel offers


to customers is a "home party,"
in which she brings sexy toys,
catalogs and lotions to a client's
house.
"We play girly games and usu-
ally toward the end there's some
kind of disclosure that makes
people feel more comfortable
with their sexuality," she said.
Clients are taught how to use
items and they can purchase
them at the end of the party, she
said.
"Home parties" are also held
in the shop, she said.
"We lock the doors," she said.
"People can bring whatever they
want to drink - wine, beer,
whatever - and we still play
all the same games, but it's even
more fun because they can try on
the corsets and lingerie as well."
-All games aside, French
Addiction is about people-pleas-
ing in every facet of the word,
Brunel said.

SValentine's L
Whatever your opinion is of Valentine's
SDay, everyone can agree that men and
women view the holiday differently.
I'm a woman in a relationship, and as
Such, I want my boyfriend to abide by the
universally known rules of the holidays
- get me something and show me you care.
But is that unfair?
I can't help but think that for men,
Valentine's Day seems to produce enough
pressure to cause an aneurysm.
My guy friends say that they generally
hate Valentine's Day for that exact reason.
They dislike being forced to conjure up
sometimes-fake emotion, they hate that


)ay trying for couples and singles


they'll be in the doghouse if they fail to pro-
duce a gift and they despise that the holiday
is so commercialized.
At the same time, guys admit that if
done right, Valentine's Day is somewhat of
a guaranteed lay.
As for my girlfriends, as much as they-
want those roses, they want a false showing
of emotion even less. They also think that
men have excuses to be unromantic 364
days a year, but surely they can provide 24
hours worth of pampering?

an"m- tfi cw-emu


But here's my take: what does Valentine's
Day really need to mean? Does it really
mean anything? They're not marriage pro-
posals.
Regardless, spending a Valentine's
Day alone can be lonely for both men and
women. Single gals seem to love to rally
around the "Valentine's Day sucks" mantra,
but there are plenty of men who feel equally
disheartened to know that there is no one
"special" in their lives either.
But being single now has its advan-
tages. Aside from the meaningless,
!, 0


responsibility-free "
sex, it makes fu- i't-'
ture Valentine's
Days shared with ... :
significant others
potentially even more
rewarding.
Truth is, a good relationship carries with
it a degree of communication and under-
Sstanding, so you should be able to gauge
the amount of attention-- ahem, gifts-- the
other one expects, but you should also be
able to realize that it's just a day on the
calendar and isn't necessarily indicative of
true emotion.


Best of the worst books for your bibliophile Valentine


STEFANIE ROBERTS )
AVENUE WRITER
Although the Butler Plaza Barnes
& Noble tried to take the guesswork
out of securing appropriate lovey-
dovey literature by amassing the
"best" of its collection on one table,
the final selections were pretty far
off - or right on target, depending
on your sense of humor.
Here are the best of the worst
Valentine's Day books endorsed by
B&N booksellers.


"How Not to Date" by Judy McGuire
This book was funnier back in
2003 when it was a movie called
"How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days."
Since McGuire's guide doesn't
come with a shirtless Matthew
McConaughey, chances are no girl
will be interested in reading it.
"Love Crystals: Energize Your Love
Life with the Power of Crystals" by
Judy Hall
Because we all know it isn't love
without mystical props.


"Sexuations Book & Gift Set:
1,000 Games for the Sexually
Adventurous"
Not just a book, but certainly not
a gift idea one would expect to find
in a store with a children's depart-
ment.
"The Complete Idiot's Guide to
Sextrology" by Megan Skinner
The "fine art of true romance
through astrology"?
Maybe Skinner should invest
in "The Complete Idiot's Guide


to Creating a Pseudoscience and
then Calling People Idiots for Not
Knowing It."
"Naughty Cakes: Step-by-Step
Recipes for 19 Fabulous, Fun
Cakes" by Debbie Brown.
"Ace of Cakes" Duff Goldman
has met his match in cake cookbook
author Brown.
I can't think of anything that
screams romance more than a cake
topped with edible strippers wear-
ing sugar paste boobie tassels.


"Heart Stones" by Josie Iselin
A picture book of rocks shaped
like hearts. Geologists the world
over are swooning.
"Something Blue: Jenna Jameson's
Jenna Tales" by Jenna Jameson
Let's all take a moment to stop
and say "Jenna Tales" aloud.
Let's then take a moment to rec-
ognize that Jenna Jameson is a New
York Times best-selling author.
Happy Valentine's Day, indeed.

friend leaves him, then he befriends
the French exchange student next
door and has a climactic ski race
with his ex's new boyfriend. It's also
one of the wackiest films ever made
and a personal favorite.
"Eternal Sunshine of the
Spotless Mind"
There are a lot of things we
want to forget. I'd name some, but
I'm saving them for another list. In
"Eternal Sunshine," Jim Carrey and
Kate Winslet undergo a procedure
to forget the tumultuous time they
spent together. Innovative director
Michel Gondry and screenwriter
SCharlie Kaufman have constructed
a film with a strange premise, yet
it is so emotionally true that it will
probably make you cry.


"The Brood" / "Possession"
Feeling bitter? Then treat your-
self to a double feature of two horror
(or so you're lead to believe) films
inspired by the respective directors'
divorces. In David Cronenberg's
"The Brood," a man investigates
his wife's experimental psychiatric
therapy as it relates to murders be-
ing committed by deformed mutant
children.
In Andrzej Zulawski's
"Possession," Isabelle Adjani leaves
her husband, Sam Neill, for myste-
rious reasons. It's all angry, violent
marital drama until Adjani gives
birth to a space creature from hell in
a Berlin subway tunnel.
"Happy Together"
Great Hong Kong actors Tony
Leung Chiu Wai and Leslie Cheung
play gay lovers in Argentina as they
reach the bitter end of their relation-
ship in "Happy Together," a story
perfect for Kar Wai Wong's brand
of sad, beautiful art films. A must
for anyone who's ever experienced
a devastating breakup.
"Brokeback Mountain"
Perhaps you're just looking
for a good cry after downing that
whole bottle of merlot. Look no
further than Ang Lee's "Brokeback
Mountain," a heartbreaking tale of


forbidden love between two cow-
boys (Jake Gyllenhaal and the late
Heath Ledger). Maybe you've heard
of it? It boasts gorgeous cinematog-
raphy in addition to a love story that
is more universal than you think.
"A Better Tomorrow"
If romantic love is not for you,
then how about the strictly platonic
love between a man and his best
friend as they shoot a bunch of
people? John Woo was the master
of tough guy love before he squan-
dered his talent in America, and
"A Better Tomorrow" is vintage
Woo. Chow Yun-Fat is the coolest
gangster on Earth (take that, Denzel)
as his partner-in-crime, Ti Lung, at-
tempts to reconnect with his police-
man brother, Leslie Cheung. Did I
mention there's lots of shooting?
"A Woman is a Woman"
Maybe you're an attempted intel-
lectual who has alienated everyone
(welcome to my world). How about
a smarty-pants French film on
Valentine's Day, then? The beauti-
ful Anna Karina plays a striptease
dancer who wants to get pregnant,
but her husband refuses, so she
enlists his best friend. Jean-Luc
Godard's third film is a French New
Wave rendition of a musical com-
edy, a perfectly playful combination
of theory and whimsy.

VDear my friend-boy Andrew,
College Ilve blooming like a
sunflower in my eyes. Thank you
for all of the wonderful moments,
kisses and silly fights.V
I love you, Nicole

My dearest Connie, accept from my pen,
a poem writ by the most geekest of men.
How do I love thee? Uncountable, when
I love thee way more than ten to the ten
(that's one with ten zeros after it then);
I think ten fingers would come to an end.
Kiss me quick Connie & don't tell me "when,"
I'll love you my whole life, my perfect ten!
From May twenty three of 'eighty seven
In our married bliss (it's nearly heaven),
'til Valentine's day two thousand and eight:
Thousand & eighty two weeks, what a date!
This love sonnet came from the hand of Tim;
a geeky math poem from none but him.



Cuddle Cakes, I love you!!!
VHappy Valentine's Day!!
You're amazing and beautiful!
VLove W Honey Bunny!! 4
wThe greatest fan of your life! V

May God shower us with blessings and keep
us together always.

There shouldn't be one day to confess my
devout love for your because i will feel like
this forever
P -U Know Who

To My Huggy Bear,
That's us 30 years from now listening to Bob
on our way to your mom's house for
thanksgiving. That's us getting our bare
feet trampled at the local punk rock show
Friday nights. That's us devouring our reg-
gae shack before we even make it home to
feed the horses. So, here is to many more
years of us.
Love, C

Dear Donta,
Roses are red, diamonds are bright;
I'm so lucky to have found Mr. Right!
Enjoy your last Valentine's Day as a single
man! We love you!
Latina, Koda,Kenai and Roxy

My Darling Annabelle,
Tonight I will cook for you...
after I kiss you awhile.
Dinner may be late.
Love, -C.

Many Valentine's Days have come and gone
with you growing up so fast.
No matter how many more years fly by,
my feelings for you shall last.
Happy Valentine's Day -
My Favorite Neighbor!
Love, Tricia
I met a boy at the Swamp
in early September.
His name is one I know
I will always remember.
He quickly turned around and said
"Hey, Go Gators!"
At the end of our chat he said
"Ashley, I'll call later."
Today is my chance to turn around and say,
"Hey Nick! Go Gators!
And Happy Valentine's Day!" W
DearAlberto,
Happy Valentine's Day!
PI love you so much!V
One little kiss!
Love, Johanna


Whitney,
You know how I love your notes. So I thought
I'd write you one. "And so help me, I love
your lips the way you smile at me after we
kiss...Oh it's just like love". Love, John

UCLARM -
Sometimes you leave your zipper down.
It makes you want to frown.
Good thing you have me now or that's how
you would go around town.
You love to wear your Jinko's because they
sink so low
Good thing you have me now because you
would wear those around town.
You are the best thing I've found
We'll have to thank Andy next time we see
him around.
Good thing I have you now or I'd be the
saddest girl in town.
I love you baby. - Ajoliew

My Dearest Wayne,
I can't believe that it's been almost three
years since we've been together. Every day
spent with you has been a blessing and I
can't wait to see what the future awaits for us.
I will always love you baby.

Though today we are apart, you're always
near my heart. I love you. Thank you for a
wonderful year!d
John,
Many people go through life looking for the
magic that will ignite their hearts and give
them reason to love. Looking back, every-
thing has led me here to you. It's your hand
I want to hold, your lips I want to kiss, and
my life I want to share. You have become my
magic flame, swept me off my feet and I will
love you forever. God bless.
Love, NayV
Dear Travis: I can't tell you what a joy it is to
love you after almost 3 years. It seems both
like yesterday and a long time ago that you
and I were glaring at each other from across
a campfire and then awkwardly posing for
prom photos, smiling and nervous. We
shared so much together, from sunsets on
the river to moonrises at the lake, all com-
plete with your warm, loving, hugs. I cherish
each moment together, and I know that when
you look at me and break into that smile of
yours that you love me wholly and passion-
ately. You love me for the way my feet scurry
under you when they get cold, and I love you
for the way you keep them warm. As another
year passes, I know we'll still be together, not
perhaps because we're meant to be, but sim-
ply because we love to be. Happy Valentine's
Day, all my love, Your Little One.

you mean the world to me. I love you! Happy
Valentine's Day!

Freddy My Love,.
You're my sunshine on a cloudy day, the
cheese to my macaroni. You've added so
much to my life and I look forward to being
your First Lady one day.
LYRRMAB, Megan

Momo,
Your sarcastic wit always tickles my armpit.
No one can resist to stare at your long black
hair. If only you knew that your boy Drew
fancies you.

To My Girlfriend Alyssa,
I love you with all my heart. Congratulations
on your success, I knew you could do it!
Your Nothing, Whitney

To My Booger,
I love you very much.and I'm happy we're
still together.
Love, Your Chunky

JUDY
History is measured in many ways. There is
the evidence of prehistory and the records
of carved or written ancient records. Then
there are the accounts and events within our
parents' and world's history saved in written
or recorded means. History is made each
day and recorded in many different means
by individuals and media. All those histories
have been important to me. But the most sig-
nificant is the history of our love, not a dusty
and hoary tome or crumbling scrolls, but the
building of years of friendship, devotion and
passion. They were like living leaves in an
ever-expanding book.
10-24-56: the first time we met;
10-27-56: our first date;
11-03-56: the first time of a million times
I told you I loved you;
11-17-56: the first of a million times you told
me you loved me;
05-28-60: we were happily married, then
and forever.
03-17-61: the c.rnh ol ur L.ea ul.,ul ilnie girl,
Shi i beauriul today
05-27-68: the birth of our special genious
of a boy

Before and later we wept over illness and
death, and rejoiced in the wonderful mar-
riages of our children. After came the joy of
our grandchildren. Many people remarked
on how in love we had always been. All the
life we shared, the joys and triumphs and the
growing older together ended. It was April 18,
2004, after more than 47 years of loving you
and almost 44 years of marriage, as usual in
the morning, I took you coffee to start the day.
But sometime in the night, you had gone to
God. In that morning; on that date, my sense
of life and history was shattered forever. The
world cracked and my whole life fell into the
void. I miss you everyday, darling.
Always, Ed


Happy Valentine's Day Dash,
You make my life complete. Hope we have
many more. Love you forever.
Your Hubby Jahmal

My soul mate Steve: S sd T u I
Thirty four years ago I was the most fortunate person on the face of the earth to be blessed with the most
genuine and kind soul ever. Anyone that takes the time to know you always reminds me just how lucky I am
to have such an honest and kind, caring and considerate person in my life. If I had a dime for every woman
that has asked me, where did you find him, we could feed all the hungry people in the world. Knowing in
my heart it has not been easy for you all these years struggling with my very independent views on life and
people, you have always been there for me whether, you agreed with me or not.
At a very young age I knew I would never make it in this world alone. You came along at the perfect time
of my life, and I truly believed always you were sent from our Creator to me. You are so the real deal that
sometimes I just get awake in the morning and touch you to make sure that it is really true. Everything in a
soul mate that I was in need of is YOU.
Thank you for always walking along side of me in life instead of walking in front of me. Thank you for stand-
ing up for what you think is right "ALL THE TIME". Thank you for never allowing me to win just because -
I was a girl.
Still together, Still in Love, and Still the best of friends. You are #1 and will always be #1 in my life.
Love, Theresa

Pizza nevereeps my ove

When I look into your eyes.
When I see duck butts, I think of you.

Maybe a Disney rave or two.

That you're my dear Koopa o

Gators fall to frenzied Tigers at home

* LSU INTERIM COACH BUTCH PIERRE PICKED
UP HIS FIRST WIN.

By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer .
dklein@alligator.org

Sometimes a caged animal is even more dangerous.
In a commanding and inspiring 85-73 win Wednesday
night, LSU (9-14, 2-7 Southeastern Conference) proved the " b -
past doesn't always have to be a reflection of the future. * ,
After struggling in the early parts of the season and re-
cently losing head coach John Brady, the Tigers played with '
fire and passion that the Gators (19-6, 6-4) simply couldn't
match. .
"With the way LSU played tonight,"
UF coach Billy Donovan said, "we could
have played our best game of the year m ,
and still lost. That's how well I think they f
v played."
In two games as interim head coach,
Butch Pierre has taken No. 4 Tennessee .
to the wire in Knoxville and defeated the
Gators on the road.
Donovan Donovan said he felt the Tigers were
a "hardened" group that has responded to the adversity by
playing to its fullest potential.
He pointed to LSU guard Garrett Temple, who suffered I
an injury when his front tooth penetrated his lip with 11:11
remaining in the second half. Temple received some treat-
ment and returned to the game, apparently unfazed.
"There is blood coming down his mouth, and I can just
see the fire and the heart," Donovan said. "He had enough
of losing, he had enough of everything. I don't see any of our
guys hardened like that."
Last Saturday, when Donovan criticized UF's defense in
the 10-point win over Georgia, many seemed befuddled by
his concern in a game where the Gators won handily.
After Wednesday's loss to LSU, it seems Donovan's pre-
monitions were accurate.
"I think people wondered why I was upset. Well, it all
came to fruition today," he said. "We put an enormous' .
amount of pressure on our offense because of our inability to
want to play defense." Jeremiah Stanley/ Alligator

Height, youth no longer excuses as season carries on


Billy Donovan can yap all he wants.
Care about your defense as much as
you care about your offense.
Don't just talk about defense - be about
defense.
Look for each other on defense as much as
you do on offense.
When Donovan said earlier this week that
his team was totally consumed with offense,
he was right on. This team is too young, too
small and not intense enough. The Gators
have done better than I thought they would
this season, but they would be better than that
if they would just bring the same intensity on
the defensive end as they do the offensive.

"Do you want to win or do you just want

said.
Seriously, being down 20-6 with 12:57 leftin
the first half against the dead-last team in the

right. There's nothing pretty about losing the
way the Gators did Wednesday.

UF goes


on road to


face UGA

So much has changed since the
last time UF and Georgia met.
In that game Jan. 24, the
Bulldogs (17-7, 4-5 Southeastern
Conference) dominated the Gators
(15-9, 4-5 SEC) in every aspect of
the 82-55 rout.
Georgia guard Ashley Houts
had as many points in the first half
(21) as the entire UF squad.
Each team has taken its lumps
since then.


Women's
Basketball


The Bulldogs
have won only
one of their five
games since then
- a 72-58 victory
against Arkansas,
ranked 11th out
of 12 in the SEC.


The tough stretch dropped Georgia
out of the AP Top 25 for the first
time since the week of Jan. 13, 2003
- a span of 98 weeks.
UF has gone 2-3 in the time.
since the last meeting. The Gators
seemed to turn a corer after a
Feb. 7 victory against Auburn but
followed it up with a loss to lowly
Mississippi State.
With the teams tied for sixth
place in the SEC, Thursday's 7
p.m. matchup in Athens will have
plenty of postseason implications.
Both teams may be missing a
player as well.
Georgia senior Rebecca Rowsey
will miss the rest of the season due
to complications from a previous
knee injury, according to a Georgia
press release.
Rowsey did not have a big
impact in the last game, however,
going scoreless in eight minutes of
action.
UF point guard Lonnika
Thompson is questionable for
Thursday's game.
The sophomore sprained her
shoulder against Auburn on
Feb. 7 and did not play against
Mississippi State on Sunday.

eluding 9 of 20 from 3-point range.
The Tigers had five players in double figures,
led by forward Anthony Randolph's 22 points.
Donovan said after the game he felt his coach-
ing staff would do a better job playing defense
than his team, and he spoke of his squad's im-
maturity.
"We have baby skin right now," Donovan
said. "As we become more calloused and more
hArdened, that's when we'll figure out what it is
we have to do to win games."
During the course of the game, the Gators
were on the wrong end of a number of question-
able calls. At the end of the first half, Donovan


remained on the court as the teams headed into
their respective locker rooms so he could argue
with the officials.
"Every time we touched them, they
called a foul."
Marreese Speights
UF sophomore center

After the game, Donovan said he was unable
to comment on the situation.
Center Marreese Speights, who fouled out,
vented his frustration.
"Every time we touched them, they called a
foul," Speights said. "They touched us and they
didn't call anything. I couldn't touch anybody. A


couple of times, I didn't even touch him and they
called a foul. I guess it happens sometimes."
Officiating aside, UF struggled to find a
rhythm on its own.
The Gators committed 19 turnovers in the
contest and shot just 33 percent from beyond the
arc, which is somewhat skewed as they hoisted a
number of attempts in the waning moments.
Guard Nick Calathes led the way with 16
points but committed as many turnovers (five) as
assists. Calathes admitted to becoming discour-
aged at times and pointed tq defense as the key
factor.
"Watching them score gets us down, to be
honest with you," Calathes said. "If you can't get
stops, it's tough to win a game. If we can't stop
anybody, we're not going to beat anybody."

abundance of perimeter speed to its
advantage, and it isn't working on
the defensive end. The Gators can't
help their lack of size, but saying it's
because they're young isn't a valid
excuse anymore. Their lack of size
wasn't the reason they didn't rotate
well or help each other out on the fast
break Wednesday night.
When asked what his best defen-
sive five would be to have on the
floor at one time, Donovan replied
with himself as well as his assistant
coaches. He even gave a shout out to
strength and conditioning coordinator
Matt Herring.
"Coach Donovan's done all he
could," Werner said. "He tried all dif-
ferent ways. He's yelled at us. He said


it's up to you guys. It just falls on our
shoulders."
Now UF has lost three of four and
has given up a total of 336 points in
those four games. That's 84 per game.
I didn't realize a weak Southeastern
Conference team was capable of put-
ting up NBA-type box scores.
Marreese Speights said a team
meeting would take place soon to talk
about these struggles. That's not such
a bad idea.
"We have to find a way to play de-
fense," Walter Hodge said. "We have
to help each other."
When Donovan said his team was
lacking in "talent defensively," he
wasn't kidding.
When my 5-foot-7, 140-plus pound
frame could score on you, well, may
the good Lord have mercy on your
soul.


Mossor's recent spurt energizes Gators


WHOOPS, from page 25

UF coach Amanda Butler has plenty of re-
spect for the talented Georgia team - which
sports All-American Tasha Humphrey - and
credits league parity for part of the Bulldogs'
struggles.
"I'm always surprised when a lot of teams
in our league lose," Butler said. "You scout
them, and you watch them on film, and you get
to know them so well that it's hard to imagine
them getting beat. They're one of those teams
that I always put in that category."
With Thompson likely to come off the bench
if she plays, sophomore guard Jennifer Mossor
will probably make her second straight start.
Mossor has become an offensive power-
house, scoring 17 and 20 in her last two games,
respectively, well above her season average of
7.5 points per game.
"I've just been shooting the ball with con-
fidence," Mossor said. "That's basically it. My
teammates have been getting me the ball."


Coaches pulled aside the ever-upbeat
Mossor recently, asking her to become more
serious at important times.
"Jen enjoys life. She likes to laugh," assistant
coach Susie Gardner said. "But there's a point in
time when, 'Hey, you know Jen, you're one of
our best shooters.' As a shooter you have got to
focus. You have got to come
in the gym extra.
"I think that maybe some
conversations she's had with
some of the coaching staff
(and) the self-evaluation of
what she wants to give to this
program this year has caused
Mossor her to have two outstanding
games in a row."
Georgia has dominated UF lately The
Bulldogs have won the last seven meetings by
an average of 26.1 points per game.
"History says that Georgia beats us pretty
good," Gardner said. "But I also know Georgia
well enough to know they're a little fragile right
now."

UF SOFTBALL

Nelson falls shy of no-hitter in doubleheader sweep


By KYLE MAISTRI
i Alligator Writer
kmalstn@alligator.org

The No. 10 Gators (7-0) picked up their first
two home wins of the season Wednesday.
UF defeated Mercer (1-3) 5-0 in the first
game before taking just five innings to blow
out the Bears 12-1 in the second.
.With the sun still up in Pressly Stadium,
All-America Stacey Nelson pitched her best
game of the young season.
Nelson took a no-hitter into the sixth of the
first game when it was broken up - with two
outs - by a bloop single.
"Those hits are really frustrating, whether
it's the tenth hit of the game or the first hit,"
she said.
Nelson finished the game allowing only


two base runners - that single and a walk
in the fourth inning. Wednesday marked the
ninth time she has thrown a one-hitter, and the
junior was a little disappointed about not clos-
ing out the remarkable feat.
"I hate to say it, but I don't think I'm ever
going to get a no-hitter," she said.
Behind a stellar performance from inside
the circle, the rest of the team contributed
plenty from the batter's box. Junior first base-
man Ali Gardiner went 2 for 2 and drove
in three runs while sophomore outfielder
Francesca Enea delivered her first big hit of the
season - a towering two-run bomb that easily
cleared the deepest part of the park in center
field. Enea said she was very aware of the fact
that she only had one hit coming into that at-
bat and just tried to hit the ball solidly after UF
coach Tim Walton called for a hit-and-run.


The Gators' explosive offense stole the
show in the second game.
Freshman Stephanie Brombacher took a 2-
0 lead into the top of the fourth when Mercer
left fielder Holly Oglesbee
drove a ball over Enea's
head in right field for a RBI
S -' double.
. That run was the first
.Brombacher has surren-
i dered in her short career.
SThe 2-1 lead quickly
Opened up when the
Nelson Gators' offense scored 10
runs in the bottom of the inning.
Freshman Kristine Priebe started the of-
fensive barrage by slamming a double off the
left-field wall for the first hit of her career.
Three singles later, with Priebe having


already scored, senior Mary Ratliff came in
to pinch hit for Le-Net Franklin. After strug-
gling through a 0-for-3 performance in the first
game, Ratliff drove a hard ground ball back up
the box, finding green grass and scoring two
runs. UF would go on to record a total of eight
hits and force two Mercer pitching changes
before closing out the game in the top of the
fifth due to the mercy rule.
Enea had a 2-for-2 game, including a two-
run double.
"I finally found some holes," she said.
Walton was pleased with his team's perfor-
mance but quickly dismissed the importance
of moving up in the polls.
"It's good to be ranked where we're ranked
just for notoriety and recruiting and those
sorts of things," he said. "But it has no bearing
on what we do each day."


UF uses strong final round to claim second-place finish


* TWO GATORS TIED FOR
SECOND OVERALL.

By ANDY HUTCHINS
Alligator Writer

The UF women's golf team
didn't back down on Wednesday,
but it only needed to check the lead-
erboard to see what happens when a
team steps up.
The No. 6 Gators fired a 10-over
294 Wednesday, which earned
them second place outright at the
Northrup Grumman Challenge in


Palos Verdes, Calif., with a cumula-
tive score of 31-over.
UCLA, which placed four golfers
in the top 10 as individuals, com-
bined for a five-over 289, which left
them seven shots clear of UE
While the Gators couldn't match
the Bruins' depth, two of their lead-
ers fell just short of medalist honors.
Senior Whitney Myers' one-un-
der 70, spurred by four consecu-
tive birdies on her back nine, led
the Gators. The score tied her with
Arizona State's Azahara Munoz,
Stanford's Mari Chun and Arizona's
Amanda Wilson for the low round


of the day.
"I started with one, and you just
get momentum," Myers said of her
birdies. "I was making really good
shots."
A doublebogey
. ~'" ' after a fog ,delay
( . .. I on the fourth hole
-- - Wednesday likely
Golf prevented Myers
from claiming the
Gators' second individual victory of
the season.
Myers and freshman Jessica
Yadloczky, who shot a two-over 73,
both tied for second for the touma-


ment, one shot behind Wake Forest's
Natalie Sheary.
"I played really well all week,
and I've been putting really great,"
said Yadloczky, who would have
earned her first collegiate victory
if not for a two-stroke penalty for
moving her ball on Tuesday.
When told so after her round,
Yadloczky said she had no idea.
"Everyone's going to have a
crazy story like that once in their
life," she said, sighing. "I'm glad
mine happened now."
Senior Tiffany Chudy and 15-
year-old freshman Hannah Yun each


* recorded top-25 finishes. Chudy tied
for 21st after her 76, and Yun shared
23rd following a six-over 77.
Chudy finished at 13-over. Yun
ended her tournament at 14-over.
Redshirt junior Omella Jouven's
second consecutive 75 was her low
score of the tournament, leaving her
at 17-over and tied for 32nd.
An exuberant Myers was ener-
gized by her team's strong perfor-
mance.
"We didn't know how we were
going to play at this tournament,"
she said. "We can definitely win
NCAAs."
