The board, the State

The project costs are paid
by the Capital Improvement

statewide student tuition fees of
$4.76 per credit hour. The funds
are released to Florida's public
universities every three to four
years, said Bill Edmonds, the

House council's proposed budget is good news for UF


* UF OFFICIALS CAUTIOUS, STILL
PLANNING FOR MORE SEVERE CUTS.

By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org

The state education budget passed by a
Florida House of Representatives council on
Tuesday was kinder to higher education than
expected, but UF officials aren't, celebrating
yet.
Joe Pickens, R-Palatka and chairman of
the Schools and Learning Council, said he


originally thought the council would have to
cut the statewide university operating budget
by up to 4 percent, or as much as $880 million,
because of state revenue shortfalls.
But once the council factored in a poten-
tial 6 percent tuition increase, Pickens said it
came down to a 0.5 percent budget cut an
estimated $110 million statewide out of an
approximately $3 billion budget. All budget
recommendations must be approved by the
full House and Senate and Gov. Charlie Crist.
While the House's proposal is generous,
UF President Bernie Machen wrote in an e-
mail that he still expects $50 million in cuts
for UF next year because the Senate's proposal


will probably contain more severe reductions.
"So even in a year when
reductions are being made,
there are pleasant, sur-
f i prises," Pickens said. "We
just made a policy decision
that public education was
going to be one of the areas
SiI we spared from budget
1cr-st reductions as much as we
could."
He said the 6 percent tuition increase was
approved by his council, which planned that
the Florida Bright Futures Program would


cover the increase. He said the full House will
consider it the week of April 7. UF won't know
its actual cuts until the end of the session.
In February, Machen asked each depart-
ment to prepare a proposal for a hypothetical
6 percent budget reduction.
UF Chief Financial Officer Matt Fajack,
who oversees all of UF's budget operations,
said UF would stick to its original approach.
Fajack said the departmental reduction plans
are due by April 15.
"It's better to plan for the worst and hope
for the best," he said. "There's a long time be-
tween now and the end of the session, and a
lot could change."


PUBLIC HEALTH

Couple pledges $1M toward new children's hospital


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org
The parents of Sebastian
Ferrero, the 3-year-old who died
after a chemical overdose at Shands
at UF's pediatrics unit, pledged
Wednesday to match $1 million in
donations made this year to their
foundation, which aims to create
a full-service children's hospital in
Gainesville.
Horst and Luisa Ferrero, creators
of the Sebastian Ferrero Foundation,


announced the plan during a news
conference at the Florida Museum
of Natural History.
At the news conference, several
Shands and UF officials signed a
pledge with the Ferreros stating
they would work to improve pe-
diatric care.
On Oct. 8, Sebastian was taken
to a UF pediatric clinic to determine
if he had a slow growth rate but
a nurse administered more than
10 times the amount of a testing
chemical. He died at Shands at UF
on Oct 10.


The Ferreros received an
$850,000 settlement from Shands
after Sebastian died.
"I think if we build it, they
will come."
Dr. David Kays
Shands Children's Hospital
surgeon-in-chief

Dr. Mike Good, senior associate
dean of the College of Medicine,
said -in an interview after the
news conference that the Sebastian


Ferrero Office of Clinical Quality
and Safety would be responsible
for all patient-safety programs. The
office will be housed in the College
of Medicine.
Dr. David Kays, surgeon-in-chief
of Shands Children's Hospital, said
in an interview that he was in favor
of the Ferrero's plan to build a free-
standing local children's hospital.
He said the demand is certainly
there.
"I think if we build it, they will
come," Kays said.
Gilbert Levy, a Gainesville


businessman, was first to answer
the Ferreros' challenge, making a
surprise, undisclosed donation at
the conference. The foundation has
already raised about $80,000 so far,
Horst Ferrero said.
Luisa Ferrero, who is expect-
ing her third child this August,
thanked Levy for the foundation's
first contribution, which will be
doubled under the Ferrero's match-
ing incentive.
"It's still a long, long way to
achieve our final goal," she said.
"But things have changed."

Albright offers advice for next president in UF speech


* NEXT TERM WILL BE 'ONE
OF THE MOST DIFFICULT.'

By ELIZABETH LEVA
Alligator Contributing Writer

With a quick step and deter-
mined look, Nicole Bauman pre-
sented a ticket to a security guard
monitoring the Pugh Hall Ocora
Room on Wednesday morning.
Bauman sought answers con-
cerning the current presidential
candidates and said former U.S.
Secretary of State Madeleine
Albright could offer some wis-
dom.
Bauman, a UF food and re-
source economics junior, was
one of about 200 attendees of
Albright's speech on the UF
campus where she presented
the main issues of her third and
most recent book, "Memo to the
President Elect: How We Can
Restore America's Reputation
and Leadership."
Albright called the book a "us-
er's guide to the White House."
She said the next president
should read her book before he
or she takes on "one of the most
difficult presidencies any of us
have seen."
"I don't think I've ever seen
the world in such a mess," she
said, "and that's a diplomatic


term," she added with a laugh.
To make matters worse for
voters, determining who should
lead the U.S. out of its "mess"
is unnecessarily tough because
candidates have spent more time
talking about each other than the


issues at hand, Albright said.
The 44th presi-
On dent, she said, must
Campus re-establish the
United States' good
name lost through the military
occupation of Iraq.


"You don't just decide one
group of people is not capable
of making decisions," Albright
said. "Imposing democracy is an
oxymoron."
Supporting democratic move-
ment within a nation would be

more beneficial to both parties
than extended occupation, she
said.
"I think Iraq will go down in
history as the worst disaster in
international relations," she said,
"It is worse than Vietnam."
As a former United Nations
ambassador, Albright said the
new president needs to smooth
out deals concerning interna-
tional relations.
Her attitude as "an optimist
who worries a lot" is one the
new president should possess,
she said.
But the book doesn't only of-
fer advice for politicos. Albright
said voters could use her book
as a guide to determining which
traits in a president are most im-
portant.
It was just what Bauman, who
said-she was hungry for political
direction, was looking for.
Bauman was one of the first
students in line to buy a copy
of Albright's book and have it
signed.
She said Albright helped her
figure out the kind of candidate
she'd like to support but wasn't
any closer to determining who
she might vote for of the current
field.
"The president should be
Madeleine Albright herself,"
Bauman said.

About Time

Apology for slavery late,

but we support it
On Wednesday, more than 140 years after the 13th
Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified, the
state Legislature passed a resolution apologizing for
Florida's role in slavery.
We'll just get the obvious out of the way first: It took law-
makers far too long to do this.
In fact, The Miami Herald reported that some black lawmak-
ers had been pushing this legislation for years let's repeat
that for years.
Why their colleagues weren't sold on the idea from Day 1 is
beyond us. In fact, state Sen. Jim King, R-Jacksonville, wasn't
aware of the horrors of slavery, the Herald reported. So maybe
some lawmakers just needed a history lesson.
In any case, we appreciate the Legislature's symbolic ges-
ture. Other Southern states have passed similar resolutions in
recent years, and South Carolina removed the Confederate flag
from its Capitol dome in 2000.
Of course, this symbolism does nothing to restitute or repair
what was done. But it does offer some element of responsibility
for atrocities that, for too long, no one took responsibility for.
Enter the key word: reparations. Gov. Charlie Crist said he
would not rule out the idea of paying reparations to descen-
dants of slaves. Of course, if it took the Legislature this long to
pass a simple apologetic resolution, Crist would be long gone
before lawmakers even considered the issue.
While Crist and Co. were all in agreement in Tallahassee, the
resolution certainly won't go over well with everyone.
Some would argue that the great-great-descendants of
someone don't need to apologize to the great-great descendants
of someone else for anything. But we would point out that since
slavery was abolished, racism and injustice didn't go with it.


Private Party


Congrats, Gator Party.
It looks like your
profeges in UF's
Student Senate learned well,
and after being sworn in
earlier this month, they are
already doing what they
were recruited to do: Keep
the Gator machine running,
unopposed and unimpeded.
The committee that
nominates senators for Senate
committee memberships, the
Replacement and Agenda
Committee, met late on
Sunday behind locked doors
in the Reitz Union. No min-
utes were taken at the meet-
ing. But put aside the state's
Sunshine Laws about open
meetings and records, which
Senate President Pro-tempore
MaryGrace Bell said "will be
followed" from now on.
The real offense here is that
four Orange and Blue Party
senators who applied for a
spot on a committee were
turned down.


All four represent the
College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences, which, with more
than 14,000 students, is UF's
largest college. And members
of Student Government won-
der why they're irrelevant
outside of SG offices in the
Reitz Union.
The Gator Party ran on
the promise it would be
responsive to students. We
can't see how shutting out
the representatives from the
university's largest college is
being responsive to anything
but Gator's interests.
.At this point, this can't
even be called party politics
- that would be making a
mockery of what goes on in
the semi-productive bodies
that meet in Washington and
Tallahassee. To have that, you
would need two parties who
share at least some power.
In SG, one party can't get
inside the building, let alone
do anything productive.

Cosmetic surgery
T A at would you be willing to risk for a slimmer
nose? A bustier chest?
S Some people will dip into their life savings,
spending up to $10,000 on a nose job. Others will go so far
as to take a second job or apply for a loan to fund corrective
surgery.
You probably won't catch anyone admitting they would
risk their life, however. Plastic surgery, like any procedure
that uses anesthesia, can be fatal. This proved true for South
Florida teenager Stephanie Kuleba, who died on Saturday
- 24 hours after her corrective breast augmentation surgery.
It is suspected that she suffered from malignant hyper-
thermia, which is an increase in the body temperature that
can be brought on by anesthesia.
And yet, cosmetic surgeons in Florida say they are seeing
more teenagers for plastic surgery than ever before. In 2005,
more than 3,500 girls under the age of 18 had breast implants.
I attribute this trend to celebrities and pop culture influencing
the youth of America and expressing that corrective surgery
is acceptable. If no one in Hollywood has a hooked nose, then
why should a young girl find hers attractive?
In 2004, more than 326,000 boys and girls under 18 had
corrective surgery to fix something that made them self-
conscious, according to the American Society of Plastic
Surgeons.
But why do these common teenage issues like body im-
age and self-esteem result in the drastic measure of going
under the knife? When I am a parent, if my 18-year-old
daughter expresses to me that she wants larger breasts or a
straighter nose, I plan to kindly inform her.that appearance
isn't everything. And that I'm not paying for it.
There is plenty more that parents can offer their child than
a swipe of a credit card and an introduction to their city's best
plastic surgeon. As expensive as it may be, I think parents are
using this method of correction as a way to avoid actually
being a parent.

much or calves are too little.
Since- I was a freshman in high school, I had wanted a
nose job. After breaking my nose several times, the rather
large bump that developed was not something I enjoyed see-
ing in the mirror every day.
But I soon changed my mind after I researched the pain
involved, high costs and saw a few graphic episodes of "Dr.
90210."
I have been put under anesthesia before, so that thought
did not scare me. However, I did not stop to consider that
the chance of death due to anesthesia is pretty common,
about 1 in 200,000, according to studies done in 2004. And
this doesn't include cases where anesthesia was a secondary
factor or contributor to a patient's death.
According to a New York Times article, the agreement
among surgeons is that the risk is much higher for elderly or
very sick patients, or those with certain medical conditions,
which are often easy to miss. Such was the case for 18-year-
old Kuleba, who sadly was getting ready to attend UP.
So if anesthesia has the ability to have this effect on any-
one, why are people signing up for the unnecessary risk? If
you're going to die from a surgical procedure, my thought is
that it better be one that is intended to save your life in the
first place.

Letters to the Editor
Obama likable but not a leader
People like Barack Obama. He
connects with the people, seems
honest, gives moving speeches and
he represents the United States fa-
vorably on the world stage. All
these factors make Obama a great
politician, but those won't make
him a great U.S. president. I have
seen nothing from Obama that
leads me to believe he could make
tough decisions. I haven't seen
enough from Obama that shows he
could lead America in such a tur-
bulent time (a tough time thanks
to some other great politician who
wasn't capable of being president).
He needs to be more assertive and


needs to push his ideas more. For
example, Obama consistently says
that he is anti-gun and shares his
beliefs openly. However, when
faced with a bill that mandated
punishment for firing a gun near
or on school grounds, he wouldn't
vote yes or no he voted "pres-
ent."
Obama has plenty of good qiual-
ities, but those qualities would be
put to better use in a position like
Secretary of State. Let's realize that
he would be better as a representa-
tive of America than as the leader
of America. If we want America
to return to where it belongs, we
need someone with ideas similar


to Obama's and the backbone to
impose them when necessary.

Affordable Pill not a priority,
I wish to contend several points
that Laura Moore raised Monday
in her letter about affordable birth
control. First, I understand that
a student may have to live from
paycheck to paycheck. However,
if at the end of her budget calcu-
lation (and an actual budget was
certainly implied in the letter) she
finds that such dire straits have


arisen that a choice must be made
between dispensing money to ei-
ther health care or utilities, I would
suggest she revises her budget to
- exclude several trips for sushi. I
don't mean to stereotype, but the
validity of such an ultimatum is
difficult to believe and there are
many ways to free up money in the
budget: Ride a bike, don't eat out,
grow your own vegetables, get
your movies from the library, etc..
Second, I'm not sure where the
idea came from that when the gov-
ernment spends money it "costs-
taxpayers nothing."
Where does the government get
its money? And for Congress to do


something "immediately" would
take nothing short of a miracle
on the same scale as the miracle
millions of Christians celebrated
this past Sunday. Finally, I have
a hard time imagining America's
founding fathers gathering to dis-
cuss the formation of a bicameral
Congress and apportioning to it
the duty of "reducing the rate of
unintended pregnancies." I com-
pletely support the reduction of
the unintended pregnancy rate,
but is reliance on our often inept
federal government really the only
solution to this issue?

CLAS committee


to decide on dean


* COMMITTEE COULD
POSTPONE DEAN SEARCH.

After collecting faculty
feedback this week, the UF
College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences dean search commit-
tee will meet to make its final
recommendation to the provost
today.
The committee will meet at 5
p.m. in Room 307 in Weil Hall to
decide whether to postpone the
search or move forward with
one of the two finalists after
two other finalists dropped out
this month. One candidate who
dropped out cited a recent UF
administrative shift that would
change the dean's relationship
with the provost.
The remaining candidates
are Paul D'Anieri, University
of Kansas CLAS associate dean
of humanities, and Barbara
Romzek, University of Kansas
CLAS associate dean of social


sciences.
After its meeting March 21,
the UF committee decided to
delay its recommendation until
today so faculty members could
submit input about the search.
Pramod
Khargonekar,
committee
chairman
and UF's
College of
Engineering
dean, said
Khargonekar faculty sug-
gestions
have been streaming in at a
higher rate than usual.
Khargonekar said he doesn't
see any reason why the com-
mittee wouldn't make a final
recommendation at today's
meeting.
"We have taken our time,
and it is now time to decide,"
he said.

UF aims to curb worker smoking


By JAMI BAKER
Alligator Contributing Writer

For UF employees trying to kick their smoking
habit, UF now offers a free program to help them
quit.
The Student Health Care Center is inviting em-
ployees to take part in a seven-week program that
will offer weekly meetings and discounted prices on
smoking-cessation medications.
The first meeting will take place today in the
SHCC basement from noon to 1 p.m.
Jane Cullen, associate director for nursing, said
the idea for the program spawned from the Healthy
Gators 2010 coalition. A task force was appointed
specifically to address smoking on campus, and a free
program for students to quit smoking was started.
Cullen estimated there are about 20 percent to 22
percent of employees that smoke.
"We felt it was time to launch a program for em-
ployees also," she said.
Participants will meet once a week during their
lunch break for information sessions and group sup-
port.
"First and foremost, it is a group support program.


Everyone in the program is there with the full inten-
tions and desire to quit smoking," she said.
Participants will receive a discount on prescription
anti-smoking medications from the Student Health
Care Center pharmacy, and nurse practitioners will
work with participants in choosing which medica-
tions to use. Along with the group support system,
employees are also being encouraged to invite their
spouses to take part in the program.
"First and foremost, it is a
group support program."
Jane Cullen
SHCC associate director of nursing

Research shows the success rate of quitting im-
proves when people quit together, Cullen said.
The first program will only take 20 participants, so
employees are encouraged to sign up as soon as pos-
sible. The program is open to all full-time or part-time
employees and other personal services staff.
"Our vision is to offer one program per semester
as long as the demand is there," Cullen said. "To quit
smoking is a process, and we want to be able to help
as much as possible."

UNDCR THC INFLUENCE


Local leaders struggle to keep underage drinking under wraps


DRINKING, from page 1

man Steve Orlando said. "We're
not unique in that respect."
UF President Bernie Machen
isn't a prohibitionist, Orlando
said, but he has been campaign-
ing against underage and binge
drinking since he took the helm-
on the UF campus.
The most popular activities for
students revolve around drinking
- including nightlife, tailgating
and house parties.
The under-21 age restriction
for drinking serves as a protec-
tive law, said Tavis Glassman,
coordinator of Alcohol & Other
Drug Prevention for GatorWell
Health Promotion Services.
And results from the 2006
Core Alcohol and Drug Survey,
which analyzes students across
the country, show that many stu-
dents disregard the law.
"About 70 percent of stu-
dents who are underage have
had a drink in the last 30 days,"
Glassman said, "so, clearly, this
is an issue."
At Shands at UF, 16- to 29-
year-olds have the highest in-
cidence of trauma center visits
for vehicle crashes involving
alcohol, said Michele Ziglar, pro-
gram manager at Shands' trauma
center.
The center receives the
most alcohol-related visits on
Saturday and sees a rush after
the bars close at 2 a.m., Ziglar
said.


UNDERAGE DRINKING IN BARS
Lisa Stengel, 19, wore a blue
wristband on her right arm,
signifying her underage status
at Gator City in niidtown on
Wednesday night.
Standing at 4 feet 11 inches,
Stengel, a freshman telecommu-
nications major at UF, walked out
of the bar sipping from a half-full
Miller Lite bottle, according to a
police report.
"We do want to send a
message and be stringent
in our enforcement."
Lt. David Rowe
coordinator of GPD's Party Patrol

A police officer asked her how
old she was, put her in handcuffs
and placed her in his police car to
process her arrest for underage
drinking.
Stengel's friend began to bang
on the car windows, asking about
Stengel, according to the police
report.
The officer then arrested her
friend, SFCC student Ashleah
Chiacchiero, for interrupting his
investigation.
The two college students were
taken to Alachua County Jail,
where they spent the night.
"I realize that was dumb of
me, and I deserved (the cita-
tion)," Stengel said, "but I didn't
deserve to go downtown."
Stengel is one of many ar-
rested for this offense.
Last year, 1,009 people were
arrested in Gainesville for under-


age drinking, according to GPD
records.
Officers look for people who
are calling attention to them-
selves or don't look old enough
to be drinking, said Capt. Lonnie
Scott, GPD commander for the
downtown area.
"Most of (those arrested) are
not happy about it," Scott said.
"Some of them probably don't
believe they got caught."
Joe Cappelletti, a bartender
at Jack's Bar & Grill for about a
year, has seen a lot of excessive
drinking and crazy nights down-
town.
He believes part of the prob-
lem of is that venues have to
close early.
"I don't understand the con-
cept of bars (closing) at 2 a.m.,
and kids come out at like 12:30
p.m.," Cappelletti said.

DRINkING ON GAME DAY
The fall semester is full of
RVs, folding tables, alumni and
alcohol.
Tents and lawn chairs pop up
all over campus lawns. Groups
of alumni and students gather
to drink and cheer for the Gators
with Solo cups in hand.
Game day is unique to drink-
ing trends because the behavior
becomes more acceptable, even
at extreme levels, according to
results from one survey.
The 2006 Game Day Survey,
which was e-mailed to a random-
ly selected group of students,
asked students about their typi-
cal drinking behavior on game

days.
Glassman, a leader of the
study, noticed a type of high-risk
drinking common at tailgating,
called extreme ritualistic alcohol
consumption.
While binge drinking is de-
fined as four or more drinks
for women and five or more for
men, the extreme consumption
level doubles these numbers to
eight drinks for women and 10
for men.-

sible partying and works to keep
parties under control.
If officers find underage
drinkers, ideally, they are sup-
posed to take a zero-tolerance
policy, Rowe said.
Underage drinkers can be giv-
en written arrests, and the party
hosts can be charged with having
an open house party because they
allowed underage drinking.

David and David: listening to CDs so you don't have to


DAVID COMBS AND DAVID LOW I
AVENUE WRITERS
Sitting in the veritable '60s opium den
that is the Avenue office, we hazily looked
around the room.
Among the piles of disheveled paper,
crusty old Alligator newspapers and hid-
eous wood paneling, we found ourselves
poring over the shelves and shelves of
CDs that are sent to us.
Let's get one thing straight: Most of
these albums are terrible. Like, absolutely
god-awful sonic foulness. Or that's what
we assumed by looking at the dudes be-
ing douche bags on the covers. We really
don't know how Victory Records found
us or why they continue to bombard us
with their product. Same goes for the
people who promote bands like Disturbed,
Sevendust and that guitarist from Kom.
Going against what was left of our bet-
ter judgment, we decided to sit down and
actually listen to some of these discs on a
quality stereo system.

R.E.M. album draws on old sounds for better or worse


ALLIE CONTI ) AVENUE WRITER
It would be hard to jump on the
R.E.M. bandwagon at the release
of their 14th full-length album.
While almost everyone can ap-
preciate their influence on and
practical invention of alterna-
tive rock, it is difficult to pick up
a new album by them, knowing so
much is behind it.
Consequently, this album re-
quires putting things in a bit of
perspective.
So what is there to say about
an album like "Accelerate," the
newest effort by the Rock and
Roll Hall of Fame inductees?
Admittedly, not enough to make
anyone want to jump on any sort
of bandwagon.
The album starts off with
"Living Well is the Best Revenge,"
a sonic revival of earlier albums
"Document" and "Green."
However, the comparison stops


there.
While R.E.M. albums from the
mid 1980s and even the early 90s
held a certain sort of charm, the
charm does not work anymore.
After three critically panned al-
bums, R.E.M. needed to make a
large and drastic effort to show the
world they weren't dead.
Unfortunately, the album's me-
diocre 35 minutes don't do that.
The band is doing all they
can to keep themselves relevant.
Appearing at Langerado Music
Festival this year and touring with
indie mainstays Modest Mouse
and newcomers The National this
summer, they are attempting to
bring their music to a younger
audience. Not to mention the
sonic experimentation they went
through in the 90s.
Realizing they were unsuccess-
ful ih their adaptation to different
styles, they've returned to what

they're known for.
While the album doesn't sound
drastically different from previ-
ously acclaimed works, something
is undeniably missing. It may not
even be the fault of Michael Stipe
and his band. The amount
of evolution required to
remain relevant as 50-
year-old rockers might be
beyond the limitations of
R.E.M. as it is for almost
every other band not called
The Rolling Stones.
Warner Brothers Music R.E.M


was kind enough to allow
R.E.M. to release another album,
breaking the "three-strikes"
rule and forgetting the dismal
reception of "Up," "Reveal" and
"Around The Sun." If EMI didn't
own the rights to the early stuff,
I'm sure Warner Brothers would
have finished up R.E.M.'s contract
with some compilations of, you


know, good music.
The first three songs on the al-
bum are listenable and have been
almost constantly (to my chagrin)
playing in my head since I've
heard them.


- 'Accelerate'


But, for every decent
song like "Man-Sized
Wreath", there is a song
like "I'm Gonna DJ"
with lyrics so terrible
it makes me miss the
days where we couldn't
understand what Stipe
was saying (think 1984s


Murmur).
There's also the case of
"Houston" and "Until the Day is
Done," which sound exactly the
same. Having a sound that never
changes is one thing; it is another
to put the same song twice on one
album.
I felt like I was listening to
"Automatic For The People" and

"Green" a few times during the
record, which is both good and
bad. That's what the album does,
though it stays static. It follows
an old formula without any im-
provement.
It has some strong points that
are reminiscent of their best work,
but no matter how close of an imi-
tation they compose, it will always
just be an imitation.
You can remake an album as
many times as you want, but ap-
parently once you deviate from the
path, you can't come back.
R.E.M. had one last chance to
prove to audiences that they could
still be a driving creative force in
rock.
On "Until the Day is Done,"
Stipe sings, "The verdict is dire."
Stipe was right about that: One
more poorly received album and
the time might be up for "the
American Smiths".

Expounding on musical taste can lead to judgment


We're really judgmental.
Or maybe it's just me. All I know is I feel
like a huge jerk because the main reason
I didn't like the Band of Horses show on
Monday was because I was wedged between
some sorority girl who was dancing obnox-
iously and a really tall bro who insisted on
standing in front of me with a hat on.
But I feel like an ass not only because I
let the sold-out crowd that contained large
swathes of people I don't exactly relate to af-
fect my experience, but also because I judged
this one dude wearing a Jimi Hendrix T-shirt.
Don't get me wrong, Hendrix is good
- innovator in rock 'n' roll, all that -but in
the context of this show, my perception of the
guy was, "Yeah man, I'm going to wear my
rock shirt today. Ooh, but it's cold out. Better
wear my long sleeve under my shirt so people
can see it's my rock shirt."
Admittedly, I still think this is really funny,
but I hate myself for it. In reality though, a lot
of judgment gets passed regarding people and
the music they listen to.
But it's easy to judge. People love to tell


you what kind of music they're into, espe-
cially on the Internet.
I don't really know why, but everyone
does it. Whether it's a laundry list of bands,
the ever-vague "anything I can dance to" or
the unfortunate "everything but country,"
Facebook and MySpace profiles host so much
of our personal tastes.
Hey, I do it too. People /o
Panda Bear, Fleet Foxes, y
Bowerbirds, CCR, Gram you wha
Parsons. This is what the music the
"favorite music" section of especial.
my Facebook profile dis- Inter
plays.
But why? Why do you, I and pretty much
all of us feel it is necessary to lay out our fa-
vorite musical artists to people that might not
even know us?
Is it a reflection of our personalities? Is it
an attempt to show off what we think is great
taste? Or is it a cry of outreach to other souls
with similar tastes in an indirect, kind-of-sad,
yet kind-of-endearing way?
For better or for worse, it's all of these


v
t
y
ly
rn


things, and these Web sites are just one way
we go about doing it.
As I've expounded on before, the type of
clothes you wear can send this message (i.e.
Hendrix T-shirt), but even farther down the
rabbit hole of letting other people know what
kind of person you are based on music you
listen to are applications like
e to tell Last.fm.
Last.fm is a download-
kind of able program that logs, or
're into, "scrobbles," all the songs you
on the listen to on your computer.
et. It's pretty much Big Brother
for iTunes and yet another
way to be seen or to at least try to be seen.
It also can affect the way you listen to mu-
sic, or even what you listen to.
I'll even admit to this one too. Yeah, when
I first got a Last.fm account, I was very self-
conscious about how people would view
the music I was listening to. I wouldn't play
songs that I thought weren't hip enough. Even
worse, I would leave songs that I thought
were hip playing when I wasn't even in the


room so they would get -
scrobbled.
Ridiculous and
whorish, I know. I .,:. -.. .
realized this soon
enough (also that
no one looks at my ac-
count anyway) and now I listen to all theDef
Leppard I want.
But I still keep the account because there
are some neat things about it. I do like to see
what I listen to over the course of a week and
it is kind of fun to see what other people you
know are listening to.
It can bring people together too.
International means of communication are
opened up based on an immediately acces-
sible common interest. I always enjoy discuss-
ing the finer points of the Hold Steady with an
online mate in Australia.
Then again, that sounds really, really lame.
Anyway, the point is just be true to your
own taste, and if you're judged, who freaking
cares?
Oh yeah. All of us.

Counting Crows play safe on new album, crash anyway


ROBERT HILSON I AVENUE WRITER


First, the rationalization.
Though gaining exposure during
the 1990s "alternative" craze, the
Counting Crows are about as alter-
native as the Wichita Adult Mixed
Ensemble.
"Sh;ek" connections and lead
singer Adam Duritz' persistence in
sporting thinning, white-boy dread-
locks certainly don't help the band's
street credibility either. The Crows
play it Mr. Rogers safe.


But there's always a place for
timeless pop songs, and that's
what Duritz and company produce
- most of the time.
With "Saturday Nights and
Sunday Mornings," the Berkeley
band reveals their affection for a
good party. They should have spent
the weekends writing hooks, be-
cause the album doesn't have many.
Compounding' the monotony,
a dogged determination to "rock"


means that apart from the sappy The biggest failures, though, be-
folk ballads, songs are noisy, long to Duritz. He's far

tive now hang a mere rung above
the Eagles and Partridge Family
in terms of aural stimulation.
If there's a saving grace, it's the sub-
urban "Hanging Tree." The irresist-
ible slab of power pop taps into the
lush melodicism of "Hard Candy."
But to those looking to keep a
standing in the alternative com-
munity, a word of advice: Peel that
Black Flag sticker off your back

Leopard-print a sure-fire way to make any style roar


VANESSA DIMAGGIO I AVENUE WRITER
It's time to release your inner feline this
season.
Found in shoes, scarves and handbags,
leopard-print accessories are in. The feisty
print is a quick and simple way to spice up
any outfit, but you just need to know the right
- and the wrong way to wear it.
The bottom line is this: Leopard-print
doesn't match with anything, which means
it matches with everything. When you start
trying to match your entire outfit to your leop-
ard-print accessories, that's when you cross
the line into tacky .
Don't worry about trying to match. If you

never intentionally try to match your bag to
your outfit. It's the easiest way to make you
look a little too matchy-matchy.
Leopard-print bags can be dressed-up or
down. You can pair them with jeans and a
T-shirt or a cocktail dress so long as the size
matches the occasion.
For example, if you're going for more of a
daytime look, an oversized tote would work,
but if you're pairing it with something dressi-
er, I would try a clutch instead.
If you don't aim to match, use the print to
break up solid colors and transition seamlessly
from day to night. This feisty trend is sure to
heat up your wardrobe.

* Sex slump all in your head


Spring is officially upon us: the
birds and bees are buzzing and boink-

and most of you probably ended your
winter sex slump on Spring Break.
Last week presented a good op-
portunity, as you were probably tan,
free-spirited and stress-free. And yet
for some of you the slump continues
on, which might explain the overly

self-esteem to drop, anxieties to rise

Book a reaction to CIA

FLEENOR, from page 11

He said he read the whole thing in one night,
made notes as he went along, gave feedback to
Fleenor and ended up becoming his editor.
Wetherington, who is a music producer, described
himself and Fleenor as "creative colleagues." He said
a big part of their creative process is to send each,
other projects and bounce ideas off one another.
Wetherington said Fleenor has always been "kind
of a character, kind of a storyteller."
"Even in those little anecdotes you share with
friends," he said. "When he tells a story, it's like he's
writing a novel. It's always been like that growing
up with him."
For someone who doesn't consider himself a writ-
er, Fleenor has a rather prolific collection of works.
He has written three novels and eight scripts and has
no intention of stopping.
Still, he said he will not concern himself with
whether he becomes a huge success or not.
"It feels natural for me to write, so that's what I
do," Fleenor said. "If good things come of it, great.
And if they don't, it's nothing I have control over."

who can dazzle us and our clients. Please

UF drops midweek series finale at Jacksonville

* THE GATORS BLEW A THREE-
RUN LEAD IN THE CONTEST.

By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer

JACKSONVILLE If you take a
peek at UF's schedule, it says the Gators
were on the road Wednesday night.
You would never have known it, as
orange-and-blue-dad spectators packed
into John Sessions Stadium only to
watch No. 24 UF (18-5) give up a three-
run lead and take a tough 8-5 loss to
Jacksonville (14-8).
Despite playing what amounted to
an extra home game, the Gators' pitch-
ing staff put together one of its shakiest
performances of the season. Starter
Stephen Locke lasted just three innings
and combined for more walked and hit
batters (four) than strikeouts (three). J.K.
Lacoste who pitched just 2/3 of an in-
ning walked two batters and allowed
two earned runs. The usually solid Josh
Edmondson lasted just two innings.
Sophomore Kyle Mullaney, who en-
tered the season as the ace of UF's staff,


threw 2/3 of an inning and allowed three
runs, the second of which came on a balk.
Things got so bad that Dustin Bamberg,
who started the game at designated hit-
ter, came in to pitch in the bottom of the
seventh and was the best pitcher of the
night for UF. The senior threw 1 2/3 in-
nings and struck out three.
"He's going to have to give us some
innings," UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan
said of Bamberg. "Some
of these guys, it's disap-
pointing that we just
can't get anything out
Baseball of them. For some guys
it's been two or three
years and we can't get anything out of
them. At some point you have to give us
something."
The loss of starting catcher Buddy
Munroe in the second inning may have
played a role in the struggles of the
Gators' pitching staff. Munroe hit a pitch
off his right ankle in the top of the second
inning.
After blasting the Dolphins 11-6
on Tuesday, the Gators appeared to
be on their way to another easy win

Gators travel to N.C. State


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

When you live by the 3, sometimes you
die by the 3.
This year's edition of the UF women's
basketball team has made 177 3-point-
ers, most of any season in school history,
eclipsing the 2004-05 squad's former re-
cord of 169.
But when shooters have difficulty find-
ing their mark, such as on Monday, when
the Gators went just 1 for 17 from 3-point
range against Florida Gulf Coast, victories
are a little more difficult to come by.
UF coach Amanda Butler said that UF
(19-13) will need to shoot better than 5.9
percent from behind the arc if it wants
to win at North Carolina State (19-12)
-in its third-round National Invitation
Tournament matchup on Thursday night.
"I don't think that was the indication of
the type of shooting team we are," Butler
said. "It was just kind of one of those in-
explicable things that occurs in basketball
from time to time. We've definitely got to
put the ball in the hole better than we did
the other night."
That will not be easy against one of the
country's stingiest defenses. The Wolfpack

force 19.7 turnovers per game. Despite
the woeful shooting night against Florida
Gulf Coast, 5-foot-7 UF junior Kim Critton
said it's critical her teammates keep their
confidence.
"I don't think that was the indica-
tion of the type of shooting team
we are."
Amanda Butler
UF women's basketball coach

"I'm going to try and get all the re-
bounds, so they can shoot again," Critton
said. "If you tell them don't shoot, their
confidence level is going to go down.
You've got to motivate them and tell them
to keep doing what they're doing."
It's a tough line for Butler to walk. She
wants her players to be confident in their
shooting but not to overlook other offen-
sive options.
"We didn't want to put ourselves in
the position where we were settling for
3s, and that was one of the parts of our
offensive game (Monday) that we're a
little disappointed in ourselves," Butler
said. "Especially when they went to zone,

Early enrollee Patchan switches to defensive line


* SENIOR PHIL TRAUTWEIN RE-
TURNED TO CONTACT DRILLS.

By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

When running down the list of the most
versatile athletes on the UF football team, not
many people would pick Matt Patchan out of
the lineup.
But the 6-foot-6, 238-pound early enrollee
has the chance to be a two-way star this season
on the offensive and defensive lines.
Patchan was brought in as an offensive
tackle after excelling on both sides of the ball
at Seffner Armwood High, but a bout with
mononucleosis and shoulder surgery signifi-
cantly altered his frame.
On Wednesday, Patchan was moved to the


defensive side of the ball but will continue to
participate in offensive drills as well.
"We moved him full-time defense right
now, and he's getting his extra work on of-
fense," coach Urban Meyer said. "We need
help on defense, and I think he'll get on the
field faster that way."
The switch was music to the ears of defen-
sive line coach Dan McCarney, who believes
Patchan's speed can make him a valuable
asset.
"If he's healthy, he can help us out this fall
on defense. I believe that," McCarney said.
"At 260 pounds, I don't know if he can do that
yet at offensive tackle. The kid is the real deal,
and he plays at a different speed than a lot of
guys."
Offensive tackle Phil Trautwein picked up
where Patchan left off, participating in contact
drills for the first time after missing the entire
2007 season with a stress fracture in his right


foot.
The senior was slated to start last season
and will be the foundation for the line this
year.
"It felt awesome," Trautwein said. "I'm
happy to be back. I wanted
to do more, but they didn't
want me to keep going."
Trautwein added that
this is the first time he has
been 100 percent healthy
since the 2006 season.

Trautweln INJURY WOES: Starting
safety Major Wright
missed practice with a fever, but his absence
didn't stop the secondary from playing
well.
The unit earned accolades from Meyer,
who called it the most improved part of the
team.


Meanwhile, receiver Percy Harvin had an
MRI on his injured heel.
He could miss the rest of spring practice,
and it is unclear whether he will still race
against UF's fastest student during the Orange
and Blue Debut on April 12.

MOORE STILL STARTER: The Gators are
entertaining a heated battle for the start-
ing tailback spot, with Kestahn Moore,
Southern Cal transfer Emmanuel Moody,
Mon Williams, Brandon James and-Chris
Rainey all in the mix.
As of now, Moore is still holding down the
spot he held last season, Meyer said.
"Kestahn Moore is the first tailback right
now. Moody has been impressive, but the
other guy is Chris Rainey. When he gets in the
open, you can't catch him."
Rainey broke a 70-yard touchdown run in a
short scrimmage Wednesday.

games with the only loss coming against
Mississippi on Friday, when the Rebels rallied

When North Carolina State

contain 6-foot-1 senior Khadijah
Whittington.
Whittington ranks as one of
only three players in Atlantic
Coast Conference history to
surpass 1,000 points, 1,000
rebounds, 200 steals and 100
blocks in her career. The first
team All-ACC selection, one of
31 candidates for the Naismith
Player of the Year Trophy, leads
the Wolfpack in scoring (17) and
rebounding (11.5) as well as to-
tal steals and blocks.
"They have a tremendous,
undersize post player in
Khadijah Whittington, who's
very, very similar to (UF for-
ward Marshae Dotson)," Butler
said. "Now, does that mean
we're going to be able to con-
tain and stop her? Well that's
a whole anotherr thing. She is
the type of talent where you've
got to address things and think
about double-teaming and
think about defensive assign-
ments because one-on-one
she's capable of scoring on any
defender in the country."
North Carolina State made
it to Thursday's game after
defeating South Carolina 72-
69 at home Monday. Had the


Gamecocks not lost a 14-point
halftime lead, the Gators would
have hosted them in a third-
round game.
Butler would have preferred
that, even though it would've
meant playing South Carolina
for the fourth time this season.
But since this is the way
things have played out, Butler

what the name is on the front of

"What matters is whether

It's also an opportunity for
UF, who finished seventh in
the Southeastern Conference, to
see how it matches up against
eighth-place ACC finisher
North Carolina State.
The Wolfpack have won 34
of their last 35 nonconference
home games.
"We like to claim that we're
the best women's basketball
conference in the country,"
Butler said. "When you face
an opponent in the ACC, cer-
tainly who is as talented and as
capable as N.C. State, it's an op-
portunity to put yourself where

No. 3 Gators sweep doubleheader from Gamecocks


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
S Alligator Writer

Ali Gardiner stepped into the batter's box
in the bottom of the seventh inning of a tied
game with a 1-2 count and everything on the
line.
The junior dug in, stared down South
Carolina ace Melissa Hendon and became the
hero -f the night with one swing of her bat.
Gardiner hit a walk-off home run to
deep center field to win Game 2 of the No. 3
Gators' (37-2, 9-1 Southeastern Conference)
Wednesday doubleheader sweep against the
Gamecocks (13-15,2-7 SEC), 1-0.
"I had the mentality that I was going to get
a hit no matter what," Gardiner said. "It comes
down to who wants it more, and I think that
we wanted it more than they did."


The Gators started off slowly, going with-
out a hit in the first three innings.
Gardiner was finally able to break through
for UF hitting a line-drive single to center field
in the bottom of the fourth inning, but the
Gators were unable to get on the board.
"She was a great pitcher," Gardiner said
of Hendon. "She was doing a really good job
of hiding the ball. She had a lot of our girls
guessing."
Stephanie Brombacher pitched well for
the Gators, striking out five in six scoreless
innings of work.
"Getting momentum heading into the big-
gest weekend of our season against LSU was
great," UF coach Tim Walton said. "It was a
good way to win a ballgame."
While the first game lacked the dramatics
of the nightcap, it was considerably less stress-


ful for UF.
Senior outfielder Mary Ratliff got things
rolling for the Gators, hitting an RBI double
into deep left field in the bottom of the second
inning.
"It comes down to who wants it
more, and I think that we wanted
it more than they did."
All Gardlner
UFjunior first baseman

That was the start of what would become a
three-run inning for the Gators and the begin-
ning of the end for the Gamecocks.
South Carolina committed three errors and
made its lone pitching change of the game in
the inning.


Ratliff went 2 for 3 with two doubles and
drove in a run.
South Carolina pitcher Kate Pouliot
struggled mightily in the lone inning that
she pitched for the Gamecocks, throwing
several wild pitches before freshman Krystle
Robinson replaced her.
UF took Game 1 of Wednesday's double-
header against South Carolina by a score of
6-0.
It was a dominating performance for the
Gators.
UF pitcher Stacey Nelson (22-2) was bril-
liant, throwing seven scoreless innings and
racking up 11 strikeouts on her way to a com-
plete game and the win.
"I haven't been having my ideal season so
far this year and I felt (like I was) back to nor-
mal today," Nelson said.


UF travels to Washington state for NCAA Championships


I THE GATORS QUALIFIED
MORE SWIMMERS THAN
ANY OTHER SCHOOL.

By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer

The UF men's swimming team
went 3,000 miles to chase a dream.
That dream is the NCAA
Men's Swimming -and Diving
Championships, which start
Thursday.
The team finished the dual-meet


season ranked sixth but hopes to fin-
ish better than that in Federal Way,
Wash.
If you need proof that rankings
aren't necessarily indicative of a
team's quality, then look no further
than the fact that UF takes 17 quali-
fiers to the NCAA season-ending
meet, more than any other school.
Auburn, the defending champion, is
taking 15 swimmers, and the No. 1
ranked school, Texas, is bringing 16
swimmers.
It's safe to say the Gators will
have their hands full with the com-
petition, however. Auburn defeated


UF at the Southeastern Conference
Championships despite a comeback
from the Gators.
Having more
swimmers than
any other school
may serve as a
small advantage,
but "not if they
don't score,"
swimming coach
Troy Gregg Troy said.
"There's an
advantage because you have some
numbers and you got a more enthu-
siastic group, but if we don't stand


up and score, then it's just having
bodies in the stands," he said. "We
need to have participants, not spec-
tators."
Troy will look for extended par-
ticipation from swimmers Shaune
Fraser, Omar Pinzon and Clark
Burckle.
The trio all contributed in at least
one individual SEC Championships
event. Fraser dominated in the 200-
yard freestyle with an SEC record-
setting time of 1:34.23. Pinzon won
the 200-yard backstroke with a time
of 1:41.85. Burckle touched the wall
first in both the 400-yard individual


medley and 200-yard breaststroke
with times of 3:44.86 and 1:56.00,
respectively.
Not only does Troy need every
swimmer to play a pivotal role in
the team's success, but he also may
need one or two to emulate the suc-
cess Caroline Burckle or Gemma
Spofforth had a week earlier for the
women's team.
"We have a couple guys who
are capable of that (a record-break-
ing performance), but they haven't
done it yet," Troy said. "And that's
the type of performance we're going
to need to be real successful."
