GATOR REIGN CONTINUES


Reilly elected president;


Gator wins 33 of 47 seats


By ILEANA MORALES and
KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writers

The dominance continues.
The incumbent Gator Party tri-
umphed over the Orange and Blue
Party in UF's Student Government
spring elections, taking about 60
percent of the vote.
Sarah Krantz, SG's supervisor
of elections, announced at almost
1 a.m. Thursday that the Gator
Party won the executive branch
- with Kevin Reilly as Student
Body, president, Yooni Yi as vice
president and Paul Drayton as
treasurer.
The Gator Party took 33 of 47
open Student Senate seats. The
Orange and Blue Party snagged
10 seats.
There were ties for two
Senate seats for the College of
Engineering, and the winners will
be announced today after a hand
count. The nursing and veterinary
medicine colleges did not have
candidates on the ballot.
One Orange and Blue candi-
date and one Gator candidate
ran unopposed, and both won by
default.
The total vote for the two days
was higher than for most SG
spring elections, Krantz said.


More than 8,000 students voted
Wednesday and a little more than
4,100 students voted Tuesday,
bringing the total count to about
1,000 more than the roughly 7,600
votes cast during the 2007 spring
election. More than 10,000 votes
were cast in the 2006 spring elec-
tion.
Students denied the referen-
dum question that asked if UF
should officially denounce the
U.S. occupation
of Iraq. But they
Electi 8 approved the one
that aimed to cre-
ate a committee to
advise the Board of Trustees, UF's
highest governing body, on social-
ly responsible investing of UF's $1
billion-plus endowment.
About 60 percent of voters ap-
proved an amendment to reduce
the range of Student Senate seats
each semester to 40 to 50 instead
of up to 60.
The results could hardly be
heard over cheering Gator Party
members.
As cigar smoke filled the air,
Reilly, who was Student Senate
president in the fall, said he felt
ecstatic and would start working
on every platform point.
"I told you from day one,"
Reilly said while taking a break

from hugs. "We're going to start
everything from day one."
Hugs and high-fives among
Gator Party supporters were non-
stop for several minutes after the
announcement.
But it was a different story for
the recently defeated Orange and
Blue members, who exchanged
only hugs of commiseration.
"It's a little pretentious if


you ask me," said Frank Bracco,
Orange and Blue's vice presiden-
tial candidate, of his opponents'
cigars. "They smell funny. They
turn people off."
Other Orange and Blue Party
members stood nearby celebrating
their senate seat wins.
Tommy Jardon, Orange and
Blue's presidential candidate, said
his party won more seats than ex-


pected, and hopes their presence
will "speak truth to power."
"I think we did great, I'm really
happy for senate candidates that
won," Jardon said.
Gator spent more than $11,000
on campaigning, and Orange and
Blue spent almost $4,000.

Fraternity members arrested for e-mail threats


By JESSICA PONN

Two members of UF's Sigma Alpha
Epsilon Fraternity were released from
jail Wednesday after they were arrested
Tuesday afternoon for threatening to harm
a member of a neighboring fraternity.
According to University Police
Department arrest reports, Benjamin


Berteau, 21, and Peter Kimmel, 18, sent

numerous threatening e-mails to Chi Phi
Fraternity member Anthony Zara, 18, after
they said they saw a picture of Zara urinat-

According to Kimmel's arrest report, in
one e-mail he told Zara he would like to
meet with him about the picture, and that
at the end of their meeting, Zara would
have two broken legs. Kimmel wrote, Kimmel

Kimmel was charged
with sending a written
threat to kill or injure, a
second-degree felony.
He told police he nev-

and was only trying to

Berteau sent Zara six e-mails, each with
threatening subject lines but no content.
The subjects included, "You are so com-
pletely f---ed" and "Get ready for a living

He was charged with aggravated stalk-

Zara told police he was very afraid for

Committee recommends ways to cut CLAS budget


* 1 PERCENT CUTS RECOMMENDED
FOR ALL DEPARTMENTS.

By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org

UF's College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences could implement a multi-year hir-
ing freeze and eliminate its critical-track-
ing program if it heeds the budget-cutting
recommendations of the college's Faculty
Finance Committee.
The committee released its final plan
Monday to reduce CLAS' 2008-2009 budget
by $3 million - with some warnings.
CLAS Interim Dean Joe Glover asked


the committee in January to recommend
cuts in response to this year's reduced
legislative funding and to cover expected
future cuts.
The plan proposes $2 million worth
of cuts at the college level and 1 percent
cut from every department's budget. The
cuts would be permanent, the committee
wrote.
Budget problems are nothing new for
the college, but these slashes could cause
major harm to UF's largest college, the
committee warned in the report.
"We are no longer merely cutting flesh
and bone in CLAS," the committee wrote.
"We are now removing organs and hoping
that we can get along without them."


When Glover took his interim position
in January 2007, the college was $6 million
in debt. It was reduced to about $4.5 mil-
lion by December.
Only $1 million of the debt currently
remains, but it
UF should be paid off
Administration by the end of the
year without help
from the newest proposed cuts.
The committee's report states the col-
lege-wide $2 million cuts would most
likely cause a multi-year hiring freeze and
endanger the critical tracking program
- the program that helps students take the
classes they need to graduate on time.
"It probably means there are going to be


fewer classes and the classes are going to
be bigger," said Elizabeth Dale, committee
chairwoman. "And I don't know how long
that's going to last."
Dale said the committee would issue
another report at the end of the semester
detailing how CLAS should deal with
the hypothetical 6 percent budget cut UF
President Bernie Machen presented at a
Faculty Senate meeting Feb. 21.
UF will have a better idea about the
amount of future cuts when the Legislature
meets in March.
In the meantime, Dale said Glover has
asked all department chairs to decide if the
proposals are feasible.
Glover declined to comment.

Lecturer criticizes trade


By RACHEL ARROYO
Alligator Writer

The United States isn't providing Latin
American countries with democratic
free trade agreements, said former Costa
Rican presidential candidate and UF visit-
ing lecturer Ott6n Solis in a lecture held in
Emerson Alumni Hall on Wednesday.
In front of about 150 people, Solis,
founder of Costa Rica's Citizens Action
Party, labeled U.S. free trade agreements
as undemocratic deals that allow for
multinational corporations to take over
the private sector and influence area
governments. He said Costa Rica recently
rejected a free trade agreement with the
U.S. that may have allowed the weapons
market to expand, which was worrisome
to the Costa Rican government because
they do not have an army.
Solis said Latin American legislators
are also to blame for accepting agree-
ments with regulations identical to those
provided to powerhouse countries like
China. He cited Mexico as a loser in trade
agreements due to its slow rate of eco-


nomic growth.
"The U.S. is doing what any country
with power would do to protect its in-
terests. The problem is with our legisla-
tors and leaders," Solis said. The Bacardi
Family Eminent Scholar Chair is an
endowment granted to UF, which allows
the Center for Latin American Studies to
invite distinguished scholars to lecture
and teach.
"The U.S. is doing what any
country with power would do
to protect its interests. The
problem is with our legislators
and leaders."
Ott6n Solis
former Costa Rican presidential candidate

Soils is the 2008 Bacardi Eminent
Scholar at the UF Center for Latin
American Studies and is teaching a grad-
uate seminar and conducting research on
the impact of free trade agreements on
democracy and development.

Students present alcohol research


* MACHEN SURPRISED BY NUM-
BER OF UNDERAGE DRINKERS.

By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org

Some students don T-shirts pro-
claiming Gainesville a "drinking
town with a football problem." But
to a group of UF students, drinking
is no joke.
A group of eight College of Health
and Human Performance students
submitted almost a dozen pages of
alcohol-abuse research at a meeting of
the the Community Alcohol Coalition
Wednesday.
The group's research showed that
- the average intoxication level of the
survey participants was .091. The le-
gal limit is .08.
Part of the students' research
included visits to Gainesville's mid-
town bars in July and August 2007,
where they collected saliva and breath
samples from nearly 500 people.


About one-fourth of the survey
participants were younger than 21.
Fifteen percent reported using
other drugs and a majority of them
were also underage.
UF President Bernie Machen cre-
ated the coalition in 2005 to address
Gainesville alcohol abuse.
"Everybody's looking for the
silver bullet or the single solu-
tion, and there isn't one."
Eugene Zdziarski
UF assistant vice president and dean
of students

Members of the coalition include
Machen, Gainesville Mayor Pegeen
Hanrahan, UF and SFCC administra-
tors, and police.
The group applauded the students'
efforts to get to the root of the city's
alcohol-abuse issues.
Machen said in an interview after
the meeting that the students' pre-
sentation proved what he's heard

for years about Gainesville's alcohol
problem.
"I think their research should clear
up any doubts," he said.
He said he was surprised at the
number of underage drinkers and the
number of people who admitted to
binge drinking and driving.
The goal of the coalition, he said,
is to prevent student deaths caused by
drinking.
"We're not anti-alcohol," Machen
said.
"We're anti-binge and underage
drinking."
Eugene Zdziarski, UF assistant vice
president and dean of students, said
using data to confirm that students
drink underage, excessively and dan-
gerously would help the coalition bet-
ter address the issue.
Several factors contribute to the
problem, and it will take a collective
effort to fix it, Zdziarski said.
"Everybody's looking for the silver
bullet or the single solution, and there
isn't one," he said.

Imagine That

Gator Party must keep

platform promises
We won't act shocked or even remotely surprised.
The Gator Party has done it again, and though
we are disappointed, we extend congratulations
to Student Body President-Elect Kevin Reilly, and his run-
ning mate, Yooni Yi.
You guys campaigned hard - and spent a small for-
tune doing it - so you do deserve a bit of celebration.
But don't take too long to get to work because there is a
lot of it ahead of you.
Tomorrow actually starts right now.
As state legislators work on a plan to cap spending
on the increasingly expensive Florida Bright Futures
Scholarship Program, it will be up to you to defend stu-
dent interests.
As UF faces tough choices amidst unprecedented bud-
get cuts with no end in sight, it will be up to you to make
sure all student money is well spent while still protecting
the quality of student life.
All students deserve the right to fair representation, and
we call for an end to wasteful spending of the past and a
more transparent administration.
We also can't ignore the controversy over online voting.
The 5,683 students who wanted to see the issue on this bal-
lot would be done a great injustice if this administration did
not investigate its feasibility from all angles. Maybe next se-
mester, students won't have to deal with confusing ballots
and SG elections can actually move along with the times.
It probably wouldn't be a bad idea to find someone who
can update that Student Government Web site once in a
while, either.
The Gator Party's platform played heavily on the candi-
dates' previous experiences within SG, but we're just hoping
the winners won't repeat some of the same old mistakes.
While expanding fitness options at such a large univer-
sity is relatively important, we're not expecting that to be
a top SG priority. How about extending library hours all
over campus during finals week and not just at the library-
turned-hotspot that is Library West?
The plans to improve campus awareness and education
of alternatives to drunken driving - including creating a
taxi hub in popular nightlife areas - are well intentioned,
but improving infrastructure that already exists may be
more cost-efficient.
The idea to link the Career Resource Center with the

UF must make medicines accessible
Scanning the Student Government ballot
Tuesday, I was extremely pleased to see the
referendum for the creation of a committee
to advise UF's Board of Trustees on socially
responsible policy.
There is already much for this potential
committee to address. For example, UF can
adopt humanitarian licensing policies to en-
sure low-cost access to drugs developed in our
labs. The licensing decisions we make at UF
determine whether the fruits of our scientists'
research will be accessible in poor nations.
In 2006, Universities Allied for Essential
Medicines, a student organization with chap-
ters at nearly 40 universities, issued a state-
ment calling for universities to "measure re-
search success according to impact on human
welfare." Thousands of students, scientists,
prominent public-health officials, and several
Nobel laureates signed that document, known
as the Philadelphia Consensus statement.
UF and other universities must act collec-
tively and definitively to expand global access
to medicines.

Senator will make a good lecturer
As a freshman in 2005, I took state Sen.
Mike Haridopolos' course on state politics,
and I can say with confidence that he is a
caring and competent teacher. He commuted
to Gainesville to lecture and could always be
reached when he was not here. On this front,
he deserves more respect than the Alligator
has given him.
However, professor Kenneth Wald and
other critics are absolutely correct in saying
that the political science faculty should have
had more say in Sen. Haridopolos' appoint-
ment.
That is the practice that is standard at the
university, and it is clear that the only reason
it was not followed here is because of the
senator's position. The senator is somewhat
under-qualified, but will be making more than
the department's only other lecturer without a
Ph.D. It is difficult to look on his appointment
and think of it as anything but a bribe.

Campus preachers should be ignored
I was told, "You are a woman, you have no
voice," by a campus preacher on Turlington
Plaza Monday afternoon. I was outraged. I
was even more disgusted by the preacher's
wife who stood in the distance saying nothing.
I was also called a drunkard, a whore and a
scantily dressed woman. I was pointed out by
one of the preachers Tuesday while walking to
class and bombarded with the same accusa-
tions. I was certainly not the only one.
These street preachers are ignorant bigots
who come here to accuse college students of
living in sin. They claim to commit no sins
themselves, and for that, they are hypocrites.
They are not teaching love of God, but fear of
God. If anything, they are turning students
away from God by saying we are all going to
hell. Please do not give them the time of day
and maybe they won't come back.

American dream has died for most
Like President Bush cherry-picking intel-


ligence reports to show Saddam Hussein had
weapons of mass destruction, Gerald Liles
cherry-picks stats in his latest column to assert
that the American dream is alive and well, al-
though nothing could be further from the truth.
The truth is that working Americans have been
at the job longer and working harder for wages
that have been relatively stagnant since the
Vietnam War
With the rise of corporate power and its
strong influence on the government, the power
of labor - and the power of workers to band
together to petition for better wages - has
been seriously diminished. The tax structure
has also been altered to lessen the rates by
which corporations and the rich pay their fair
share of taxes. And while income mobility has
remained relatively constant over this period,
income inequality has grown rapidly worse.
We are the richest country in the world. We
are also a country where tens of millions of its
citizens are without basic health care, where 15
million children live below the poverty level.
So the reality is, we live in a country where the
American dream has died for most citizens.

UF leaders attend research facility groundbreaking


* PATHOGENS INSTITUTE WILL COST
$56 MILLION.

By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org

Two years ago, it was an idea.
On Wednesday, it was a sandbox lined
with 14 golden shovels.
In 18 months, it will be a $56 million,
80,000-square-foot building to house re-
searchers from around the world to study
rapidly growing diseases, such as the com-


mon flu and West Nile Virus.
Fourteen UF and state leaders donned
white hard hats and dug into the earth
with shovels at a groundbreaking ceremo-
ny for the Pathogens Research Facility.
The facility will feature the Emerging
Pathogens Institute, which will be the
country's first comprehensive interdis-
ciplinary institute to address on-the-rise
diseases in plants, animals and humans.
Dr. Glenn Morris, director of the insti-
tute, said eight UF colleges have already
committed faculty members to the insti-
tute. Eventually, the institute will. accom-


modate 45 researchers, Morris said.
He addressed a crowd of about 50 sup-
porters huddled under a white tent at the
ceremony.
His speech was followed by words
from UF President Bernie
UF Machen, Florida Board of
Research Governors chairwoman
Carolyn Roberts, UF
Vice President for Research Win Phillips
and a representative from the Florida
Department of Health.
As the wind whipped through the
tent on what Machen called a "Michigan


spring day," he emphasized the need for
a pathogens institute in Florida.because of
the state's overwhelming levels of travel
and its humid climate.
He also touted the interdisciplinary as-
pects of the program compared to other in-
stitutes that only address specific diseases,
such as anthrax and botulism.
"This is the most interdisciplinary ac-
tivity that we've had since I've been here,"
Machen said after the ceremony.
"All of these things can only be done at
a university like ours."

filed seven more on Wednesday.
Day said the repeated viola-
tions suggest it was a "calculated
move" by Orange and Blue.
Krantz said it was an unusually
large number of complaints. If any
party were found guilty of violat-
ing SG statutes, the commission
would implement appropriate
penalties, which range from a fine
to election disqualification, Krantz
said.
"It's undeniably, unquestion-
ably false," Miorelli said of Day's
complaints. "Either Ryan Day has
poor vision, or I don't know."
Mark McShera, Orange and
Blue Party chairman, said the
party wasn't worried about the
"frivolous" complaints.
"We're completely confident
that the Election Commission will
see this for the shameless ploy
that it is by the Gator Party trying
to salvage the wreckage of their
flagging campaign," McShera said

ers with doughnuts, left campaign
materials unattended and cam-
paigned on RTS busses.

senators would be certified by the

Disney in a Day


Tips and tricks to get the most out of a day trip to Orlando parks


ADRIAN RUHI I AVENUE WRITER
Orlando's Walt Disney World is the most
frequented resort destination in the world,
but Floridians often take it for granted.
With four distinct theme parks, it can be
quite overwhelming for anybody who isn't
taking a weeklong vacation, much less a col-
lege student on a budget who can't sacrifice
more than a weekend for a trip to Disney
World.
So what's the solution?
Visit all four parks in one day.
With a one-day Park Hopper pass at less
than $100 for Florida residents,
you can gain access to
the Magic


Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood
Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom Park
for a day of unadulterated longing to be a
7-year-old.
Adult-sized Goofy hats. Enough said.
Of course, you'll have to be mature
enough to make a strategy and plan your
every move to make the most of your day.
You'll also need a lot more than just $100 for
souvenirs.
Again, Goofy hats.
To get on 22 different rides recently,
I used the following tips for an unusu-
ally busy mid-February trip to the parks in
Orlando.

Find a time of year that suits
you.
Aim for a time when you won't have
to feel embarrassed waiting in
line for the Dumbo The Flying
iElephant ride among a sea of
children under 10 years old.
Christmas, Spring Break and
summer are the busiest times of year
th >r the park.
The best bet is to go in mid-January, mid-
February, April or October.


Buy your park ticket in advance
Leave all the tourists in the dust while
they wait for their tickets at the turnstiles.
You'll save valuable ride time while the
dude in sandals and dress socks sweats it
out in line.

Early to rise
While this might scare some of you away,
the goal is to get up and start at the park
with the earliest opening time, which is usu-
ally Animal Kingdom. -
Just envision the opening scene of "The
Lion King." Better yet, download that song
and blast it in the morning. If that doesn't
get you out of bed, you're probably dead.
End the day with the park that closes the
latest, which is usually Magic Kingdom. It
also has the best fireworks.

Bring the right gear
Wear comfortable shoes. Please don't be
one of those people who wears stilettos to
Disney World.
Not only are you embarrassing yourself,
but you also make our feet hurt just looking
at you.
And, yeah, I'm addressing you too, guys.
Especially you.


Also, have a map handy to know where
you'll be going. It'll be especially helpful if
your party has decided in advance which
rides and attractions you'll be seeing and
which you're willing to skip.
This is also helpful if you need to know
where else you can spend your too much of
your money.

Lines? Pssh, whatever
In order to save time and make the poor
saps waiting in the regular line jealous,
you'll need to milk Disney's FASTPASS
system, especially for rides like Epcot's
"Soarin"' and Hollywood Studios' "Rock 'n'
Roller Coaster," which often accumulate 90-
minute-plus wait times.
That's the longest anyone has waited for
anything Aerosmith-related. Ever.

You've got the cherish it
This is the most important tip: have fun!
If you run around without a minute to
breathe or soak in the atmosphere, the trip
will become too much of a chore, kind of
like the time you wanted to impress ev-
eryone else and stayed up all night reading
that Harry Potter book as fast as you could.
Lame.

Local residents support museum


Don't call Steve Shey a philan-
thropist.
Sure, he and his wife have
been major donors to UF's Harm
Museum of Art for almost 20 years,
and yeah, the two have made pos-
sible the newest exhibition at the
on-campus museum by donating
nearly 100 pieces of artwork.
But don't use the P-word.
"Maybe a mini philanthropist,"
Shey conceded. "A half-time philan-
thropist, right?"
Shey, a nearly 70-year-old
Gainesville resident, and his wife,
Carol, who have donated to the
Ham since its conception in 1990,
are the benefactors of the newest
Ham exhibit, "Paradigms and the
Unexpected."
The exhibit, which opened Feb.
10. and will run until May 18, fea-
tures modem and contemporary
works from various artists and time
periods.
Christian Hale, Ham spokes-
woman, said. the new exhibition
has been in the works for about nine
months.
"Working with [the Sheys] over
the time we've been preparing for
the exhibition, I've become awed at
how deeply they care about the art,"
Hale said. "Their collecting is very
personal to them."
Steven Shey worked for more
than 40 years building and renting
apartments to Gainesville students,


and though his realty days are be-
hind him, Shey said he isn't retired.
He's only working half as much now
- only 12 hours a day, he joked.
Shey now uses his time to invest
in charitable foundations, something
he learned to do with his wife.
The Sheys met in 1959 at Hofstra
University, a private college in Long
Island, N.Y. Carol was a freshman.
Steve was a senior.

' ' They're constantly
humble. They're
down-to-earth people.
Christian Hale
Harn spokeswoman

A few years later, the allure of
a favorable property market and
a sparsely populated Gainesville
brought the couple down south.
"There was nothing in this town
when we got here," Shey said. "We
couldn't build [apartment complex-
es] fast enough."
But the market took a turn dur-
ing a "mini-recession," Shey said,
and he began taking classes at UF's
law school.
Carol also joined The Gator
Nation and earned a degree in psy-
chology from UF while raising four
young girls.
When the market improved,
Steve quit class.
"I enjoyed school very much, but

it was tough competing with those
young studs," he said. "I was thank-
ful when business changed and I
was able to get back to work."
When the Ham opened, the
Sheys were just "minor donors,"
he said.
"A couple thousand a year,"
Shey said. "That was a lot of money
for us."
Over the years, that small con-
tribution grew to what Hale calls
"quite impressive." She said the
Ham does some if its own purchas-
ing, made possible by endowments,
but much of its collection comes
from donors.
"We've been hearing a lot about
these budget cuts that are coming
up, so it's great that we have sup-
port in the community," Hale said.
Shey said he and Carol started
collecting art when the Ham's
founding director, Budd Harris
Bishop, encouraged them to do so.
They began seriously collecting
around 1993, he said.
But just like his habit of altruism,
Shey is humble about his extensive
art collection.
"Everybody collects art," he said.
"Whether it's poster art or litho-
graphs or photographs, everybody
has something hanging on their
wall."
Shey said he knows many stu-
dents don't take advantage of the art
he shares with them, but he doesn't
take offense.
Kids today have a lot on their

"There's always something going ing what the past is," Shey said.

Vests give smart look to men and women


VANESSA DIMAGGIO Q
AVENUE WRITER
They've been the fashion staple of the
cowboy, the librarian and the Renaissance
man. Now, vests are not only crossing the
gender boundary, but they've also taken
over runway shows and retail stores.
They have long been a necessity in ev-
ery man's closet, but now there are some
eclectic new ways to reinvent the old style.
The first is what I like to refer to as the
"reverse two-piece suit."
You may have seen this look on the
likes of Justin Timberlake. Sporting a vest
with a matching pair of slacks, a crisp but-
ton-down shirt and tie is a throwback to
the newsroom style of the Roaring '20s.
Ditching the jacket brings the look into the
21st century.


Another popular look for men is the V-
neck cardigan vest. Worn over a distressed
T-shirt with jeans, either open or buttoned
up, this look has a certain indie-rock charm
to it.
And last but not
least, the fashion piece Vest

teacher's closet: the
sweater vest. Don't in, so you're

tried it, fellas.
The sweater vest has
lost its geeky reputation and become one
of the best menswear trends for spring.
For a casual look, pair it with a T-shirt,
but for that oh-so-studious look, try wear-
ing it over a cotton button-down with
some nice khaki or twill pants.

This trend is no longer off limits to the
ladies either. In fact, menswear is making
a splash in women's fashion. Everything
from oxford lace-ups to newsboy caps can
be found among the ranks of menswear
trends for women, and

cotton or pinstripe.
These are significantly
skimpier than the men's versions. Wearing
it over a long tank or plain white T-shirt
keeps the trend feminine but edgy at the
same time.

can't go wrong with a vest.


Celebrities laugh at their romantic failures


STEFANIE ROBERTS I
AVENUE WRITER
Coming from anyone else, the line.
"This one's for the ladies" would likely
elicit an exasperated eye-roll from its in-
tended recipients.
But when Emmy Award-winning
"Daily Show" producer and "Colbert

as the dedication in his relationship anthol-
ogy "Things I've 'Learned From Women
Who've Dumped Me," the ladies can't
help but laugh.
"Things I've Learned," edited by

Andy Richter's "Girls Don't Make

so much on Richter's career it borders
on self-indulgent. And Stephen Colbert's
"The Heart is a Choking Hazard," whose
humor hinges on the premise that the
author's wife edited it for content, reads
like a choppy censored wartime letter.
Aside from these few mildly disap-
pointing exceptions, the rest of the stories
are guffaw-out-loud funny, like David
Wain's mini-screenplay "Persistence is for
Suckers."
Female readers may even find them-
selves inexplicably crushing on each
story's bumbling, sympathetic antihero.
Fortunately for these dumped dudes,
the nerdy funnyman's growing appeal will
soon render books like Karlin's obsolete.

* College students more open to talk sex


0 I came to this job under the basic assump-
tion that most of us are having sex.
Sure, I've had friends who have remained
( virgins through college, but in general, I
always knew a lot more people who were
getting it on than those who weren't.
A Then I read an article in last week's
Newsweek and had one of those Oprah "A-
ha!" moments.
The article, which focused mostly on up-
per-crust institutions, said while students
are more willing to talk about sex than ever
before, they're not doing it as regularly as
they are logging about it.
And that's when I realized I have had
a lot more friends tell me lately about their
self-imposed sexual strikes.


Indeed, the majority of my buds have
openly stated their desire to abstain from
emotionless and in their words, "empty,"
sexual encounters to focus their pursuit of
meaningful relationships.
The numbers tend to agree.
The most recent American College
Health Association survey found that in the
last year, the average female had only 1.2 to
men's 1.6 sex partners. Even the amount of
sex each gender was perceived to have was
substantially higher - 3.3 for females to 3.1
for men.
Are we fast becoming prudes?
Hardly. I doubt it's a coincidence that I
have also noticed an increase in the amount
of girlfriends asing me to go shopping for
S... - '


sex toys with them.
See, here's where Newsweek got it
wrong. College students are having more
frank discussions about sex and are inter-
ested in exploring their sexuality. But those
discussions include not just the dirty details
of each deed.
They are filled with concerns over sexu-
ally transmitted diseases, in response to the
lack of proper information in primary school
sex education classes, and take into account
the emotional consequences of sexual activ-
ity.
Perhaps the numbers tell a bigger story
- all the hullabaloo bestowed upon us, the
iPod generation, about our relaxed mor-
als and steadfast defense of our beloved


hookups, is really
baby-boom-bred
baloney.
We are pas-
sionate when it
counts, not just in
the bedroom, but
also about the presidential election, tasteless
murals on campus and the like.
And really, what's sexier than that?
Being mature about one's sexuality is the
most integral part of being sexually active,
and I think these numbers and the trends
I've noticed here all point to the fact that as
young adults, we are not only mature but
also understanding.

Ghostland Observatory


ditch guitars, go dance


ROBERT HILSON ) AVENUE WRITER

It's hard to take Austin, Texas, duo
Ghostland Observatory seriously.
Singer Aaron Behrens dresses like the
delinquent offspring of Prince and Pippi
Longstocking (pigtails and
all).
The band's biggest influ-
ence is apparently Longhorn
legend and Heisman winner
Vince Young.
The name of their new re-
cord can only be assumed to
mean "majestic robotics" in
some odd language. Ghostland
However, when given a Robotiqu
set of speakers, "Robotique
Majestique" makes one thing very clear.
This band is no joke.
On its third LP, Ghostland Observatory
abandons guitar sensibilities altogether
and instead knocks out a dark dance floor
romp that relies solely on the disco ball
for flickering traces of light.
The appropriately stage-setting
"Opening Credits" introduces the album's
over-the-top electronic sound.
It also suggests the reason that gadget


e


operator Thomas Ross Turner wears a
cape onstage is because he's some sort of
studio Superman.
A muscular, descending synth-riff
drives the menacing "No Place for Me,"
a song that improbably captures the elec-
tricity of the combo's live show.
The equally impressive
"Freeheart Lover" thrives on
a gritty vocal performance,
proving once and for all that
falsetto is the perfect register
in which to tell off a promis-
cuous girlfriend.
Finally.
Tailored for feverish
observatory Saturday nights, the singles
Majestique "Dancing on My Grave" and
"Heavy Heart" exist entirely
for the turntable.
To call these tracks "funky" overstates
funky.
George Clinton thinks these jams are
outrageous.
If this isn't exactly the future of mu-
sic, Ghostland Observatory has certainly
constructed one first and it's a robot with
heart, guts and balls.
A brain would be asking for too much
and who needs that anyway?

Gators rout Bulldogs before tough street(
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org


Casey Brooke Lawson / Alligator
UF freshman guard Nick Calathes lays the ball up beyond the reach of Georgia guard Terrance Woodbury
during the Gators' 77-64 victory against the Bulldogs in Athens, Ga., on Wednesday night.


UF may finally be coming of age


ATHENS, Ga.
F or the first time in a month, the
Florida Gators actually looked
like the Florida Gators.
From the 3-point line, inside the paint
offensively, and most importantly, on
defense.
You might say beating Georgia is no
eye-popper, but this game meant much
more than SUN Sports, who only aired
it on tape delay, would want you to be-
lieve.
UF snapped out of a skid at just the
right time, at the end of February and at
the beginning of the toughest stretch of
the season.
They also played unfazed basketball
on the road, picking up just their third
SEC road win of the season.
UF coach Billy Donovan recalled a sta-
tistic that caused him to look twice while
evaluating Georgia game film leading up
to Wednesday's game.


He saw a dis-
play of the SEC's
woeful road re-
cord.
t - _ Only two teams
Nick Zaccardi have a winning
Nick-el Coverage conference re-
cord on the road,
nzaccardi@alligator.org Tennessee and
Mississippi State
(coincidentally
UF's next two opponents at the O'Connell
Center).
Three teams, Georgia, Mississippi
and Alabama, have yet to win in the SEC
away from home.
"It's mind-boggling how few road
wins there have been in our league this
season," Donovan said. "Generally,
there's been quite a few. If you ever get
four wins in the league on the road, you

ATHENS, Ga. - This is the
final stop on easy street.
In the second of two wins that
UF almost had to get to keep its
NCAA Tournament hopes alive
before heading down its most dif-
ficult stretch, the Gators (21-7, 8-5
Southeastern Conference) domi-
nated lowly Georgia (12-14, 3-10
SEC) 77-64 Wednesday night.
The Gators never trailed in the
contest and led by as many as 18.
The Bulldogs put up little fight
in a game hardly reminiscent of a
typical SEC environment.
With just less than four minutes
remaining, the small pack of Gators
fans populating the back corner of
Stegeman Coliseum started an
"Orange and Blue" chant.
The Bulldog fans responded
with a cry of "Let's play football,"
but on this night, Jacksonville was
miles away.
"We looked in the crowd and
said, 'Wow, there's more Florida
fans (than Georgia fans) here,"
center Marreese Speights said.
"Man, they were loud."


;h begins

Guard Nick Calathes led the
way for the Gators, tallying 22
points and seven rebounds, wiK^
Speights added his second double-
double in a row, scoring 15 points
and 10 rebounds.
Sipping a Diet Coke after the
game, a more subdued UF coach
Billy Donovan said the win was
merely a stepping stone.
"With young
. ~guys like this, I
don't get too ex-
cited, and I don't
Men's get too down,"
Basketball Donovan said.
"It would be hard
for me to say they
have it all figured out. We're far
from that."
Regardless of Georgia's poor
record, Donovan said any win in
the SEC is worth celebrating, espe-
cially on the road.
Donovan said he felt four
SEC wins on the road would be
"tremendous." This was UF's
third. One more chance against
Kentucky looms ahead.
The Gators shot a torrid 52.8
percent from the field and con-
tinued to improve from 3-point

Den Dekker leads sweep


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

It didn't take center fielder Matt den
Dekker long to get back into the swing
of things.
In his first start of the season after sit-
ting for the opening series, den Dekker
smashed a grand slam off the right-field
scoreboard in the second inning of UF's
first game against Eastern Michigan on
Wednesday night.
The sophomore finished the game
with two hits, six RBIs and two runs. He
also made two great diving catches in
center field.
"I wanted to make an impact," den
Dekker said. "I wanted to get back there
and get my spot back in center field. ...
To help the team out is a great feeling."
The Gators (5-0) dismantled Eastern
Michigan (0-6) in the first game of a
doubleheader 15-2, a contest that ended
in the seventh inning due to a special


doubleheader mercy rule. The second
game saw a similar result, a 16-8 UF
victory.
UF began the second game the same
way it had the previous three - by scor-
ing.
The Gators loaded the bases on a
hit-by-pitch and two
walks, and freshman
Josh Adams emptied
them with a three-RBI
double.
It was '5-0 before
Eastern Michigan could
blink.
Adams After UF scored four
more runs in the second
inning - two off a Bryson Barber triple
- the game was essentially over. Barber
also added a solo homer in the fourth
inning.
Freshman right-hander Travis Lawler
(1-0, 13.50 ERA) was erratic in his first

Hot 3-point shooting helps UF open early lead, seal win by halftime


HOOPS, from page 21


range. UF hit 9 of 19 from beyond
the arc, including 3 of 5 for Dan
Werner, who seems to have found
the stroke at just the right time.
"If we hit 3s, we can blow
people out," Werner said. "Let's
just hope we can keep hitting."
UF's defense was also stellar.
- Gators held Georgia to just
14.3 percent from 3-point range
and kept. guard Sundiata Gaines
- who scored 32 in the last
matchup - to 13 points on 3-of-ll
shooting.
The game was lopsided from
start to finish, as Calathes and


the Gators came out of the gate
firing.
UF opened with four con-
secutive from beyond the arc,
including three from Calathes.
The Gators pulled out to an early
12-4 lead, which would swell to as
many as 14.
After scoring 6 straight to close
the half, UF took a 45-32 advan-
tage into the break.
The second half was much of
the same, and fans began to file
out at the 7:48 mark with the score
reading 65-49 in the Gators' favor.
"Right at that buzzer, you
could start to hear the Florida fans
cheering," Werner said. "It was
nice to hear."


The lead continued to build,
and Georgia never came within
double digits. UF led by as many
as 17 on three separate occa-
sions down the
stretch.
With the
win, the Gators
are assured
at least a .500
record in con-
ference play.
Werner Whether or not
this guarantees
UF a spot in this year's NCAA
Tournament remains to be seen,
but as Donovan pointed out, you
can only play one game at a time,
and the Gators have taken care of


business in the previous two.
The Gators host Mississippi
State on Saturday before welcom-
ing lame-duck No. 1 Tennessee
and finishing the season at
Kentucky.
Donovan said his team will
prepare as it has before and try
to take this game - like the rest
- as a teaching tool moving for-
ward.
"I still see a lot of things we can
get better at," Donovan said. "But
they're trying, and as a coach,
that's all I can really ask for. I'm
proud of the way they responded
today, but it's not like I'm going
to jump overboard and get all
wrapped up in this."

career start, hitting three batters and
walking another in the first two innings.
He loaded the bases in each of the first
three innings and gave up a three-run
homer in the third before being pulled
in favor of junior J.K. LaCoste, who
earned the win.
"Freshman stuff," UF coach Kevin
O'Sullivan said of Lawler's mistakes.
"They kind of overthrow, and they
drop their arm angle, and the ball takes
off on them.

"I'm just hitting the ball real
well right now, and hopefully
it keeps on going. It's a good
thing to take into Miami."
Cole Figueroa
UF sophomore shortstop

"If he stays back a little bit more,
raises his elbow and gets the ball more
downhill, he'll be fine. You know, fresh-
man jitters."
Wednesday's first game was even
more lopsided, with the Gators getting
better pitching performances.
Junior pitcher Stephen Locke got
what was probably the easiest win of
his career. He threw five innings and
gave up two earned runs, striking out
four batters. The last time Locke (1-0,
3.60 ERA) had more strikeouts was May
25, 2005 when he had seven against
Arkansas.
"Any time a team puts up a 10-run


lead after the third inning.. .it's going to
be a lot easier with guys playing sowell
behind you," Locke said.
Cody Barnes pitched two shutout in-
nings to close out the game.
The offense certainly didn't slouch,
either.
Three Gators had three hits, and
O'Sullivan was using pinch hitters lib-
erally by the sixth inning.
Sophomore shortstop Cole Figueroa
had five hits in the two games, and the


Gators will need that offense when they
play Miami this weekend.
"I'm just hitting the ball real well
right now, and hopefully it keeps on go-
ing," Figueroa said. "It's a good thing
to take into Miami."
Teddy Foster, replacing Buddy
Monroe at catcher, had his first career
home run in his fourth career at-bat.
UF stole 10 bases on 10 attempts
Wednesday, bringing its total to 22 of
23 for the year.


NICK, from page 21


guys have done a remarkable job. We've
got three right now, and we've got one
more road game left. They're hard to come
by"
That last road destination is Rupp
Arena in two weeks.
It remains to be seen if the Gators can
keep up this momentum going forward.
Remember, they trounced Vanderbilt
at home on Jan. 27, then got drilled by
Arkansas on the road the next game.
That explains why Donovan was very
careful in choosing his words in his post-
game interview.
He didn't laud his team with compli-
ments but instead said he saw things that
the team could do better.
He said he will remain "cautious."
And what did Georgia gain from this
game?
'-iv More of the same.
The Bulldogs have lost 10 straight to the
Gators in a series that is becoming nearly
as one-sided as the recent football record.
Well, excluding last season's game.
That brings me to my next point.
In the most absurd chant of the night,
the dozens of Georgia fans who didn't
walk out early yelled "Let's play football"
in the waning moments.
Football season is just about the only
thing Bulldogs fans have to look forward
to at this point.
Oh wait, there is one other thing.
By scoring more than 60 points, Georgia
won its supporters free chicken fingers
from a local restaurant.
Enjoy your parting gift.

No. 5 Gators suffer first loss in 10-inning thriller


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org
The aura of invincibility is gone.
After a 10-inning marathon at
Long Beach State (8-6), the No. 5
team in the nation suffered its first
loss of the season Wednesday.
Junior Stacey Nelson gave up just
five hits, set a career high for strike-
outs for the second consecutive
game (16) and pitched a season-high


9 2/3 innings, but in the end it was
the out the Gators (19-1) couldn't re-
cord that gave the 49ers a win.
With two outs and a runner on
third in the 10th inning, left fielder
Lacy Tyler hit a ground ball to
Gators second baseman Aja Paculba.
Paculba's throw to first baseman Ali
Gardiner pulled her off the bag, al-
lowing the winning run to score in a
2-1 heartbreaker.
"One play doesn't make or
break a game," said junior Kim


Waleszonia, who quickly dismissed
the notion that the
*. '. final play was the
i ' only reason for
I - ~ the loss. "We had
" 10 innings, had
opportunities
, " and left base run-
ners on."
Coach Tim
Nelson Walton expressed
disagreement with the controversial
game-ending call and described the


runner as being out by approxi-
mately 5 feet.
UF did lead after sophomore
Corrie Brooks singled home Ami
Austin to give the Gators a 1-0 lead
at the end of five innings.
Long Beach State responded in
the bottom of the sixth when Nelson
walked in a run to tie the game.
Walton said he thought Nelson
pitched well, but ultimately it was
her five walks and one hit batter that
hurt her.


Waleszonia (3 for 4) was the one
bright spot in a Gators lineup that
got just five hits and struck out a
season-high 16 times.
She said 49ers pitcher Brooke
Turner did a good job mixing her
pitches and hitting her spots before
giving her opinion on the gravity of
the loss.
"We're going to be just fine,"
Waleszonia said. "We have to iA
it and learn from it. We're gonna' be
just fine."


SFCC loses third straight game behind poor pitching


* STARTER CARRICK TUCK GAVE UP
FOUR RUNS IN FOUR INNINGS.

By SHANNON MCCARTHY
Alligator Writer

The Saints are streaking, but not in the way
they'd like.
Santa Fe Community College (12-6) lost to


North Florida Community College (13-4) 9-5
on Wednesday, the Saints' third loss in a row.
As with the previous two games, it was the
pitching staff that shouldered the blame.
Sophomore right-hander Carrick Tuck got
the start but left the game after giving up four
runs in four innings.
"When he struggles, he just lacks com-
mand," SFCC coach Johnny Wiggs said. "His
stuff's plenty good enough, but he's got to be


"When he struggles, he just lacks
command."

able to locate and throw where he wants to."
Sophomore lefty Ryan Wolfe came on in
relief, but did not fare much better, giving
up three runs in 2 2/3 innings and earning


the loss.
"You can't expect your offense to score 10 .
runs every game," Wiggs said. "We're way too
talented to be giving up this many runs."
Wiggs won't panic, though.
"They're a young dub that still needs to
learn about coming to play every day," he
said. "Sometimes they throw their gloves out
on the field and expect to win, and you can't
do that in this game."

UF hopes to repeat historic upset against Tennessee


* THE GATORS WILL FACE
THE NO. 3 VOLUNTEERS IN
KNOXVILLE TONIGHT AT 7:30.

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

Some challenges seem like
S-aiking uphill.
This looks like climbing
Mount Everest.
UF (16-11, 5-7 Southeastern
Conference) heads into
Thompson-Boiling Arena on
Thursday night to try and knock
off defending national champion
No. 3 Tennessee (25-2, 11-1 SEC).
As if to make the task even
harder, the Volunteers expect a
huge crowd as they will recog-
nize five players during a pre-
game ceremony as part of Senior
Night.
"We're playing the best team
in the country on Thursday at
their place," UF coach Amanda
Butler said. "That's one of the
reasons why kids choose to come
and play in this conference - to
measure yourself against the best
- and we have that opportu-
- nity."
Fans will flock to the 21,678-
seat arena for the chance to
see Tennessee redshirt junior
Candace Parker in her final home
game.
Parker,. who announced ear-
lier this season that she will forgo
her senior year of eligibility, will
gSa4uate this semester and will
likely be the No. 1 pick in the
WNBA Draft on April 9.
The 6-foot-4 two-time All-
American forward has been a
force not often seen in the wom-
en's game.
She has dunked seven times
and won the 2007 John R. Wooden
Player of the Year and 2007 Final
Four MVP awards, among count-
less others.


"She's special - all the atten-
tion she's brought to the game,"
Butler said. "I certainly respect
her decision and the career that
she's put together in a program
that has set the standard for the
rest of us for a long, long time.
"1 just hope she's not feeling
her best on Thursday."

"I just remember the clock
going off and we all go-
ing crazy in front of those
fans."
Depree Bowden
UF senior guard on upsetting
Tennessee two years ago

Tennessee coach Pat Summitt,
the winningest coach in college
basketball history, admitted she
always worries about how her
team will respond on such an
emotional night.
"Sometimes they start the
game with tears coming down
their faces. Even the coach feels
that way," Summitt said in a tele-
conference Wednesday. "Looking
back, our players respond well
on Senior Night in their play.
"There have been some ex-
ceptions, but for the most part,
because they have their families
there and it is emotional for
them, it reminds them that they
need to finish out their home ca-
reers in great fashion."
One such "exception" came
on Feb. 26, 2006, when the Gators
upset the then-No. 5 Volunteers
in Knoxville on Senior Night.
The 95-93 overtime win was
UF's first (and only) win at
Thompson-Boiling and one of
only two victories in 37 matchups
against Tennessee.
Senior guard Depree Bowden,
who played 10 minutes in the
game but did not score, planned
to share what that moment felt
like with her teammates as they
prepare for Thursday's game.


"I just remember the clock
going off and we all going crazy
in front of those fans," Bowden
said. "Gator chomping."
Butler never won at
Thompson-Boiling during her
tenure as a player (1990-94) or
assistant coach (1995-97) at UF,
but she has fond memories of the
atmosphere.
"It's a really neat place to
play," Butler said. "There's an en-
ergy there that's very unique. It's
something that I think as a com-
petitor you get fired up about.
You can look at it as intimidat-
ing... or you could be like, 'Wow,
what an opportunity.' Hopefully
you rise to the occasion and play
your best."
The two teams come into
Thursday's matchup with vastly
different mindsets.
For Tennessee, this game
matters little as the team pre-
pares for the SEC and NCAA
Tournaments.
The Volunteers are likely
locked into the No. 2 seed in the
conference tournament.
They would have to win both
of their remaining games and
LSU would have to lose two for
Tennessee to grab the top seed.
"A lot of teams at Senior Night
talk about how this means the
postseason is approaching,"
Sumnmitt said. "Certainly our
eyes and focus are always on
postseason. We are a team that
talks about going to Final Fours
and cutting down nets.
"Hopefully, we'll get past
that. We better, because we know
we have to be ready to play
Florida."
The Gators, on the other hand,
still have plenty to play for with
their SEC seeding far from set in
stone.
They also still hold an outside
shot at an NCAA bid.
A win Thursday would be a
big boost to their resume.


With wins in its two remain-
ing games and some help from
other teams, UF could grab as
high as a No. 6 seed in the SEC
Tournament.
Losses could drop the Gators
as low as No. 10.
For this reason, Butler contin-
ues to keep her team focused on
one game at a time.
"It doesn't even make sense to
look bigger picture, because that


one game could be what puts you
down two slots in the standings
or maybe up one or two spots,"
Butler said.
For Bowden, the team's lone
senior, it would be pretty special
to be part of the first group of
Gators to have ever beaten the
Volunteers twice.
"I would love to do it again
- really love to," Bowden said.
"That would be great."
