Three grad programs move up in rankings


Education program drops


By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligatog

Several of UF's graduate pro-
grams have moved up in this
year's U.S. News and World
Report rankings, but deans of
those colleges said looming bud-


get cuts could hurt next year's
standings.
The report, which was re-
leased Friday, showed three UF
colleges have advanced. The re-
port ranks more than 1,200 public
and private graduate programs
nationwide based on expert opin-


ion and statistics.
The. Levin College of Law, the
College of Engineering and the
Warrington College of Business
moved up one, two and three
slots, respectively. I
UF's College of Engineering
is tied for the 24th spot with
the University of Minnesota-
Twin Cities and the University
of Washington. Massachusetts


Institute of Technology's pro-
- gram took the
No. 1 spot.
P r a m o d
Khargonekar,
dean of the
College of
Engineering,
Khargonekar said he was
pleased with
this year's jump from 26th to


24th, but he said the rankings
aren't exactly indicative of UF's
progress.
"We think our quality is actu-
ally better than, the rankings,"
Khargonekar said.
He added it would be hard
to predict how decreased

Former student still missing


While the FBI has identified the remains
of four out of five men who were kidnapped
in Iraq in 2006, former UF student Jonathon
Cote, 25, is still missing.
Cote was kidnapped while working for
Crescent Security Group, a private security
firm, on Nov. 16, 2006.
He attended UF for one year beginning
in fall 2005 and was a member of Sigma Phi
Epsilon Fraternity.
"We're still hoping that Jonathon's alive,"
said Francis Cote, Jonathon's father.
However, he added that "the odds are
slimmer and slimmer" because all the other
hostages Cote was captured with have been
found dead.
Earlier this month, Cote's severed finger


was sent to American authorities. His friends
* and family saw the development as a posi-
tive sign that he was still alive and that his
kidnappers were prepared to negotiate.
"We're still hoping that
Jonathon's alive."
Francis Cote
Jonathon's father

But by Friday the bodies of all of Cote's
fellow hostages had been found and identi-
fied.
Francis Cote said he wants everyone to
pray for his son's safe arrival and check the

Locals try to restore '50s club


* CLUB RESTORATION
WILL COST ABOUT $800K.

By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Though she once lived
within sight of southeast
Gainesville's Cotton Club,
Vivian Filer never went in-
side.
The club hosted music
greats such as B.B. King and
James Brown, but Filer, 70,
doesn't remember the visits
they made when she was
about 12 years old.
"I never got to go in the


nightclub;" she said. "Good
girls don't do that."
But these days, she visits
the Cotton Club often as
chairwoman of- the board of
directors working to restore
the old building into a neigh-
borhood
Around community
GainesvlIle center.
Project
leaders opened up the prop-
erty, at Southeast Seventh
Avenue, on Saturday evening,
offering tours of the building,
live music, and fried fish and
corn on the cob as part of
a fund raiser that collected
about $1,100.
They have hosted fish fries


before, said Donna Isaacs, the
project manager, as well as a
Juneteenth Festival and Juried
Art Show that drew 5,000
people last year. Another
fund raiser is planned at the
Florida Museum of Natural
History for April 24.
The main building should
cost about $800,000 to restore,
Isaacs said. The entire prop-
erty, which also contains four
small wooden houses and
an old grocery store, could
require $1.5 million to $2
million.
"This was truly a little
community," Isaacs said.

Blade-wielding man charged with attempted murder


Suspect was living with victim while renovating her house


By WILL AFFORD
Alligator Writer
wpafford@ufl.edu

A man hired to renovate a
Gainesville house was charged
with attempted murder after police
said he attacked the homeowner
and her friend with a machete-type
blade early Friday morning.
Kalsie A. King, 52, got into an
argument with the owner and her
friend late Thursday night at the


house, located on SE 15th Avenue,
Gainesville Police officer Summer
Hallett said.
Hallett said the owner was let-
ting King live in her house while he
was refurbishing it.
King left the house after the ar-
gument, Hallett said, but returned
around midnight and tried to force
his way inside.
The owner's friend stopped
King from entering. When King
left, the two called police, who said


King had not done anything illegal
because the owner was allowing
him to live there,
Hallett said.
King then
came back to the
house a third
time and began
arguing with the
owner's friend.
King The argument
escalated and
King attacked the friend with a


machete-type blade, aiming for his
head and neck, according to King's
arrest report. The man defended
against the blows with his left arm
and suffered severe injuries.
King then approached the
owner and asked for her keys and
money so he could go to Sarasota,
where he was born, according to
the report.
When she refused, King at-
tacked her with the blade, cutting
her hands.


She tried to call 911 but King
knocked the phone out of her
hands, then tried to find her friend
to "deal with him," the report
stated.
When he was unable
to find the man, King fled
on a bicycle, Hallet said.
Police found King in the neighbor-
hood around 1:30 a.m. wearing a
bloody shirt, Hallett said.
When questioned, King admit-
ted to attacking the victims, stating
he was tired of the friend treating
him badly, according to the report.


STUDENT LIFE

UF student invited to 'come on down' for game show.


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@6lligator.org

If it weren't for a hot dog and a forgiving
cop, Kristin Lundy might not have been a con-
testant on "The Price is Right."
Lundy, a UF health education and behav-
ior senior, will try to bid her way to the top on
Tuesday's episode of the game show, which
was taped March 10 and will be aired on CBS
at 11 a.m.
Lundy was in Los Angeles for Spring
Break with two of her friends during the week
of the taping. Before she made it on the show,
the group waited outside the studio for five
hours. They were grumpy after waking up
early, being pulled over by a police officer,
which almost made them late, and paying $22


for parking.
And they were hungry.
Thanks to some hot dogs, Lundy found
the energy to impress the producers, and soon
the announcer was telling her to "Come on
down!" Her name was the first one from the
audience called that day, and she said she was
so fascinated by the bright lights and the mov-
ing cameras that she didn't even hear it.
Lundy's two friends had to slap her and
scream in her ear before she realized what was
happening.
Next thing she knew, she was being
pushed out of her seat and was running down
the stairs to the stage.
"I feel like I just ran the whole spectrum of
emotions in two seconds," she said.
Even when she was on "contestant row,"
she said it was hard to pay attention to what


was going on.
"I don't remember anything except for my
heart was beating really, really fast," she said.
During commercial breaks, Lundy said she
bonded with some of the other contestants, in-
cluding another college student and an older
woman with her sights set on winning a car.
"I don't remember anything except
for my heart was beating really,
really fast."
Kristin Lundy
UF senior


She also talked with Drew Carey, the
show's host. When Carey heard she was
studying health, she said he started cracking


' jokes about his smoking habits.
Lundy couldn't say how well she fared
on the show because of confidentiality agree-
ments, but she did share some insight into the
game show world.
"The studio is a lot smaller than it looks on
TV," she said. "I felt like I could actually reach
out and touch the stage."
And the large spinning wheel at the end of
each round, which determines who moves on
to the "Showcase Showdown," is extremely
heavy, she said.
Lundy plans to watch the show at The
Swamp Restaurant with her friends and some
faculty members from UF's College of Health
and Human Performance.
"Everyone thinks it's an April Fools' Day
joke," she said. "I have a hard time convincing
people that they should actually watch it."

UF hosts math, engineering contests for young students


* ABOUT 1,100 STUDENTS
CAME FROM AROUND FLA.

By STEPHANIE ROSENBERG
and APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Contributing Writers

UF's campus buzzed with a
younger generation of students
Saturday for two educational
competitions: the Florida Blue
Key Math Invitational and the
Southeastern Consortium for
Minorities in Engineering Inc.
Regional Olympiad for engineer-
ing.
About 900 high school and mid-
dle school students from across the
state participated in the math com-
petition, and nearly 200 students
from Alachua County elementary,
middle and high schools attended
the engineering event.
This was the first year Florida
Blue Key held the math tournament
at UF. Michael O'Brien, Florida Blue
Key spokesman and advertising se-
nior, said the group hopes to make
it an annual occurrence.
It's a good way to promote UF
to "quick-minded kids" and "math
geniuses," O'Brien said.
The group has been prepar-
ing for the math invitational since
November, he said. Besides co-
ordinating staff, some Blue Key
members wrote the math tests used
in the competition.
"We have a couple guys who are
just math-heads," he said.

As a two-minute clock began its
countdown, about 300 math teams
hurriedly tore the paper packets
apart, creating an echoing scuffle
in the Rion Ballroom. Participants
furrowed their brows and com-
municated in bursts of whispers as
they delved into algebra, precalcu-
lus and calculus problems.
Chris Lawyer, a precalculus
teacher from Middleton High
School, said the competition allows
his students to be comfortable with
their intelligence.
"They get to be as smart as they
want to be and not have to worry
about kids making fun of them,"
Lawyer said.
He said he attended similar
tournaments when he was a stu-
dent in the '80s, and
On he likes seeing his
Campus own students getting
excited about math.
"You just can't bottle that," he
said.
Meanwhile, UF engineering stu-
dents prepared to host almost 200
students from 10 Alachua County
public schools for the Regional
SECME Olympiad on Saturday.
Austin Cooley, event coordina-
tor and fourth-year UF engineering
student, said the original goal of
the program, introduced in 1975,
was to increase diversity in scien-
tific fields. Since then, the event
has widened to a larger group of
* students.
Throughout the day, kids of all
grade levels participated in a series

tium for Minorities in Engineering Inc. Regional Olympiad on Flavet Field on Saturday afternoon.


of events designed to test math, sci-
ence and overall critical thinking
skills, Cooley said.
Events included an egg drop, a
water-bottle rocket contest and a
mousetrap car challenge. Students
also entered essays and posters
about this year's event theme,
which was "Lighting the Torch to
Empower Future Leaders."

Aspiring UF poets share work at poetry slam


By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org

Student poets took the stage Friday night
to share their innermost feelings before
a crowd of about 50 people at Freestyle
Friday: Hip Hop/Poetry Slam.
The event, sponsored by the Institute of
Black Culture, Hip Hop Collective and Poets
Inc., featured students performing some of
their own work for the first time, as well as
a headlining New York-based poet known
as Kesed.
The event took place at UF's Public
Health and Health Professions auditorium.


Kesed Ragin, 22, who traveled from New
York to attend the event and a poetry work-
shop beforehand, said he began writing
poetry when he was 16.
"If that isn't poetry, I don't
know what is."
Kesed Ragin
performer

Ragin said he never thought he could be
paid for a hobby he had in high school.
"It's evolved since then, and it's a beauti-
ful thing," he said.


He said he was first exposed to poetry in
fourth grade, when a teacher encouraged his
class to use books on Martin Luther King Jr.
and Malcolm X as poetic inspirations.
Before that, he associated poetry with
Shakespeare, but he said his teacher put him
in his place when she told him any piece of
writing that invoked change was poetry.
"If that isn't poetry, I don't know what
is," Ragin said, echoing his teacher's words
in an interview before his reading. Among
the student performers was Jasper What, a
UF history senior. What said his poetry was
sparked by a rough childhood.
"It's just my outlet for things that frus-
trate me," he said. "I can't really just sit


down and try to write."
Charles Harriott, president of the Hip
Hop Collective, said he was impressed with
each student's performance.
Harriott didn't read any poetry, explain-
ing that he mostly expresses himself through
dance. But he said any artistic release takes
talent and passion.
"They share a lot about themselves,"
Hariott said of the poets. "It's a way of vent-
ing. It's got to be liberating."

Japanese Spring Festival at UF attracts diverse crowd


* FESTIVAL CELEBRATES
BLOOMING CHERRY TREES.

By RACHEL ARROYO
Alligator Writer

Like brightly colored butter-
flies, women in kimonos flitted
around the Reitz Union North
Lawn, teaching participants how
to play traditional Japanese games
at the Japanese Spring Festival held
Saturday.
The spring festival is usually
held to celebrate the blooming of
the cherry tree in Japan.
The UF Japanese Club's version
of the festival, which gathered a
crowd of about 150, aimed to ex-


pose students to the culture and
to attract new members, said Mana
Watanabe, vice president of the
Japanese Club.
While last year's festival was
largely run by UF faculty, this year
students took the helm, she said.
"My goal was to show a lot
of various aspects of Japan,"
Watanabe said. "I tried to be inter-
active with the tables so that (the at-
tendees) wouldn't just bypass and
so that they would look at the tables
and learn something new."
Ten interactive booths featur-
ing exhibits ranging from basic
Japanese facts to traditional toys
offered a little something for ev-
eryone.
Brittany Carl, a second-year en-


vironmental engineering student,
was impressed by the interactive
displays.
Carl held up a piece of parch-
ment marked with Japanese
characters written in bold, black
ink strokes. The
Multicultural characters read
Affairs "love" and "be-
lieve."
"I like how they're doing all
these fun things for free," Carl said.
While the festival centered on
Japanese culture, it attracted people
of other ethnicities.
Allison Pyle, president of the
Japanese Club, is not of Japanese
descent but fell in love with the cul-
ture after seeing the pictographic
characters used in writing.


Pyle was pleased to see people
of different ethnicities embrace a
culture that she shares a love for.
"It's not for Japanese people, it's
for everyone interested in Japanese
culture," Pyle said.
At the toy booth, blindfolded
participants stumbled around
trying to pin facial features on
a picture of a head as onlookers
shouted directions in a game called
Fukuwarai, a cross between "Pin
the Tail on the Donkey" and "Mr.
Potato Head."
After trying his hand at
Fukuwarai, Andrew Hix, a third-
year English student, raced from
booth to booth gathering answers
to a Japanese trivia challenge,
which included questions involv-


ing each display.
Trivia participants learned that

College Credit

Marketing schemes

unfairly target students
rihousands of students lined up this week to take advan-
| tage of the once-in-a-lifetime chance to prove there is such
thing as a free lunch, thanks to an advertising mistake by
a marketing firm involving the venerable Gainesville institution
Burrito Bros.
By taking the high road and deciding to honor the ad rather
than upset loyal customers, the restaurant also gave UF stu-
dents another rare opportunity.
Along with a delicious burrito, those patient enough to wait
in line were rewarded with the chance to turn the tables and
exploit a credit card company's marketing machine for an easy
- and yet costly mistake.
That usually works the other way around on college cam-
puses. For the credit card companies, the formula for financial
gain is embarrassingly simple and unsurprisingly successful.
Descend onto a college campus like locusts, offer up a free
T-shirt, iPod heck even a comparably cheap free lunch and
watch the mass of students swarm.
The cash-strapped and wide-eyed students many not
even able to buy their own beer yet sign on the dotted line
before they even have a chance to read the fine print. High on
the power of having a $3,000 credit limit despite not-having a
job, many will quickly run into trouble.
Thirty-percent interest rates and astronomical late fees start
to kick in, and, bingo. Mission accomplished.
So it's not a surprise that Bankrate.com lists the average
graduate student as owning more than six credit cards with one
in seven owing more than $15,000.
But, according to a study released Friday by the U.S. Public
Interest Research Group, a survey of more than 1,500 college
students at 40 colleges nationwide found that 74 percent think
that only credit cards with fair terms and conditions should be
allowed to be offered on campus.
We certainly agree.
But, more importantly, 80 percent said they want schools to
toughen regulations on credit card marketing.
Now there's a novel idea: keeping the vultures off campus.
And yet if an overwhelming majority of students recognize
they are being unfairly targeted, why haven't those with the
power to curb these practices done something or anything
- to stop them?
Some argue that college students should be aware of the
dangers of abusing credit cards, and they are consenting adults
who need to learn how to take responsibility for their actions.
However, the out-of-control tactics and predatory nature of
the credit card marketing campaigns needs to be addressed.
In what we hope becomes a trend, some have decided to do
just that.
Ohio State University now provides a book with basic finan-
cial information for all first-year students and also offers stu-
dents free credit counseling. A state representative in Maryland.
is trying to push a bill that would require the state's public uni-
versities to enact policies overseeing credit card marketers and
their gift giveaways on campus.
And the Ohio attorney general sued a sandwich company in
September for using deceptive methods to persuade students to
apply for credit cards.
The chain offered a free sandwich and drink to students who
agreed to participate in a promotion, but failed to mention stu-
dents would have to apply for a credit card.
Sound familiar?
So while the trend of ending voracious marketing catches
on, it's important to remember that what seems like a harmless
promotion now can turn into massive debt and one very bat-
tered credit score later.

Column

UF markets misleading campus image


Part advertising. To name a few of my favorites: bill-
boards, online pop-ups, subliminal messages.
But there's a special place inside my circulatory system
for TV commercials. I find a unique purity in the way they
shamelessly strive to manipulate the viewer. No seduction at
all -just 30 seconds of projectile content.
A study at.the University of Alabama says UF's Gator
Nation TV ads show diversity better than other schools, as
the Alligator reported on Friday.
"The television advertisements produced by most major
universities depict their campuses as overwhelmingly white,
privileged environments, likely deterring many minor-
ity students from applying," as an online article from The
Chronicle of Higher Education reported.
Wow, great news for UF. But there is one oddity: There's
more diversity in our TV ad than there is in our actual stu-
dent body. In other words, our ad misleads better than the
rest.
I'm talking about the "Go" commercial: "Go start a
Fortune 500 company. Go write the great American novel.
Go cure cancer. Go to Mars." I'd prefer, "Go carve driftwood
on the seashore so long as it makes you happy." But anyway,
I wondered how these characters, who presumably applied
to, attended and graduated from UF, would have identified
themselves.
Three characters were "white (not Hispanic origin),"
two males and one female total. I spotted two "black (not
Hispanic origin)" actors, though one was a young person and
probably hadn't attended UF yet. I also counted three "Asian
or Pacific Islander" folks two males and one female.
Oh, and at least one "other" showed up.
I guess someone forgot to tell the ad firm that women
now outnumber men at UF 53 percent to 47 percent. And
why no representation of our some 6,000 Hispanic students,
you guys? The study didn't say UF was good at showing
diversity, just "better." Also, the "show" of diversity doesn't
have to equal real diversity.


Statistically, UFP is an overwhelm-
ingly white, privileged environment
-- the very thing researchers say UF
doesn't show, like other schools do.
Six out of 10 UF students are white
and the median household income
Vincent Massaro for UF students' families is $100,000
letters@alligator.org a year.
Ah, but the genius of this ad is
its focus on individuals. By going
from person to person, they avoid showing any groups of
students. Within such groups (and in other ads), minorities
are generally depicted only as token members.
The study says this kind of "tokenism" is likely to deter
minority students from applying. But we don't have to deal
with the problem of tokenism because our ads avoid it,
right?
Well, actually, TV ads aren't real, so tokenism may be a
real problem the ads are glossing over. But, either way, UF
still wants the public to know it is diverse beyond its own
reach. Seems like false advertising is OK so long as they're
lying to make themselves appear more politically correct.
Unless the ad is a vision for the future, and true diversity
will only come when we actually cure cancer on Mars. Or
maybe I'm just missing the point. I hope the "Go" ad will
encourage minority students to apply, but I wish it wasn't
under such constructed circumstances. The experience of
diversity on campus should supersede any artificial message
on TV.
Just because the public relations arm of UF can depict di-
versity in its TV ads doesn't mean we've achieved anything
but a successful marketing campaign.
And maybe that success should tell us we're spending too
much time on image and not enough on substance.

Empty seats needed to be filled
On March 21 and March 23, the Student
Senate Replacement and Agenda Committee
held interviews in order to fill Senate and
committee vacancies. Applicants and com-
mittee members were informed well ahead
of time when the interviews would be held.
When asked if any accommodations were
needed, not a single person approached
Senate President Pro-Tempore MaryGrace Bell
with concerns.
All applicants who applied to the commit-
tee were interviewed. A record of the motions
and votes were taken in the midst of unbiased
deliberation. All actions of the committee fol-
lowed Senate rules and procedures and no
laws were broken. All recommendations were
made based on the ability that the committee
felt would better serve students. Some people
might question why these interviews were
held on a holiday weekend, and the answer is
simple: The longer seats are vacant, the more
students go unrepresented. That is unaccept-
able.
Naadira Renfroe
Gator Party student senator

Offenses were fabricated, invalid
The Orange and Blue Party's mistaken
accusations that Florida Sunshine Laws were
violated during Replacement and Agenda
interviews this weekend are not only com-


pletely invalid, but also aimed at their own
party leader.
During my term as senator, I am hon-
ored to have the opportunity to work with
outstanding senators. These senators have
accomplished mid-year budget reviews,
fiscally responsible and growth-facilitating
management by the Allocations Committee,
and a more effective way for students to reach
out to constituents through the reforms of the
Rules and Ethics Committee. The many bills
passed on behalf of the Judiciary Committee,
and the tremendous efforts by the Information
and Communication Committee, have made
senators and constituents aware of each
committee's progress.
Based on these recent accomplishments,
the recommendations of the R&A Committee
have been justified many times over. I hope
that the Orange and Blue Party will come to
realize that rather than fabricate offenses as
a balm to their own hurt feelings, it is much
more important to work together to improve
the University of Florida for every student.
Shire Patel
Gator Party student senator

Each candidate had equal opportunity
As a member at large on the Replacement
and Agenda Committee, I want to take this
opportunity to clear an unjust blemish on the
respected reputation of the committee.


On Good Friday and Easter Sunday the
Replacement and Agenda Committee inter-
viewed a total of 33 candidates for positions
ranging from replacement seats to committee
chairs in the Student Senate.
All of the candidates interviewed were
highly qualified, and it was no easy task to
come up with just 17 nominations to fill the
open seats.
Throughout voting, 13 of the 17 open seats
were decided by unanimous votes of 6-0 and
only four of 17 had split decisions. Not once
during deliberation did any member of the
committee argue against- the nomination of
any candidate. This is not to say that there was
no debate; each candidate was thoroughly
considered based on their experience and the
ideas they expressed to the committee.
I believe that the Replacement and Agenda
Committee succeeded in its mission of nomi-
nating qualified senators to serve on each
committee. The committee and I held each
candidate to the standards of integrity, open-
mindedness, goal orientation and good char-
acter, and each person interviewed had these
character traits whether chosen or not.
As a result, I have the utmost faith that
the chosen candidates will do the best job in
their representation of the student body of the
University of Florida.
Joseph Regalado
Gator Party student senator


Column's premise was not accurate
The premise that Mr. Young based his
entire guest column on that the Bush
administration "targeted Iraq because it
was the candidate for immediate democra-
tization" is completely wrong. The Bush
administration invaded Iraq on false claims
of WMDs and once proved wrong they
turned to democratizing Iraq as their ratio-
nale for war.
The claim that the Bush administration
entered Iraq knowing that WMDs didn't
exist isn't "ludicrous" as Mr. Young claims.
The administration was aware that some, if
not all, of their claims were false before the
invasion. The CIA told the administration
that the claim that Iraq bought uranium
from Niger was untrue in the fall of 2002,
yet it found its way into the 2003 State of the
Union address.
In addition, in February 2001 Colin
Powell said Saddam Hussein "has not
developed any significant capability with
respect to weapons of mass destruction,"
after receiving a CIA report. All of this helps
to explain why the Bush administration re-
fused to let the U.N. inspectors do their job
and rushed us to war. They were well aware
that their claims were dubious at best, and
invaded before they could be disproved.

'MythBusters' hosts to give presentation at UF


* SHOW WILL BE HELD APRIL 14.

By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

The Discovery Channel's MythBusters
show, which scientifically tests the validity
of rumors and urban legends, is coming to


Special-effects experts and show hosts
Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman will
perform a multimedia presentation at the
O'Connell Center on April 14.
Accent, Student Government's speak-
ers bureau, paid about $40,000 for
the event, which is free to the public.
Accent Chairman Steven Blank said Accent
was prompted to bring the MythBusters


hosts after reading suggestions from stu-
dents surveyed earlier this year..
Blank said the show would
On be in lecture style and feature
Campus unseen footage followed by a
question-and-answer session
and other surprises.
Some past myths the duo havs dispelled
are whether or not it's safe to fill the gas
tank of a car while using a cellphone be-


cause it could start a fire or if a cigarette
falling into a toilet could lead to an explo-
sion.
Blank said the MythBusters also have
some "surprise" parts for the show that
won't be revealed until that night.
Specific details are still being worked
out, Blank said.
Doors open at 7 p.m. for the 8 p.m. non-
ticketed show, he said.


Four of UF's graduate programs ranked in top 50 nationally


RANK, from page 1


revenue shortfalls could affect
the program's future ranking,
but he said the college's quality
would be at risk.
"Whenever resources get
tight, there is always an impact
on the quality of the programs,"
he said.
The Warrington College of
Business made the biggest im-
provement, moving from 37th to
34th, tying with Boston College,
the University of Washington
and the University of Notre
Dame. Harvard and Stanford
universities tied for first.
John Kraft, dean of UF's
Warrington College of Business,


said though the college's rank-
ing has continued to improve
over the past few years, students'
starting salaries hold it back.
Kraft said about 85 percent of
the college's graduates take jobs
in Florida, which don't pay as
well as companies in New York,
San Francisco or Los Angeles.
Still, the ranking is good news,
he added.
"There's over 1,000 business
programs nationally, so anytime
you're in something in the top 50,
I think it's a real plus," he said.
He said budget cuts would
have some negative impact on
the program.
But administrators would
have to learn to adjust, including
finding new revenue sources to


compensate for the loss of state
funds, he said.
Ultimately, the program needs
to encourage students to look for
jobs in higher-paying states, he
said.
"We're obviously lobbying
the State Legislature very,
very hard for funding for
the medical school."
Bruce Kone
UF College of Medicine dean

Bruce Kone, dean for UF's
College of Medicine, said an
increase in state funding would
dramatically improve UF's medi-
cal program, but he's not sure
that's something the college can


rely on.
The College of Medicine main-
tained its ranking from last year,
tying for 48th with the University
of California-Davis.
Harvard Uniiversity ranked
first.
"I have mixed feelings about it
(the ranking)," Kone said. "We're
obviously lobbying the state
Legislature very, very hard for


funding for the medical school."
UF's Levin College of Law
moved from 47th to 46th, and
UF's College of Education,
ranked 44th last year, moved to
53rd.
Robert Jerry, dean of UF's
Levin College of Law, and
Catherine Emihovich; dean of the
College of Education, could not
be reached for comment.


U.S. News and World Report has released its rankings of more than
1.200 graduate programs across the country based on expert opinions
and statistics. Here's how UF fared this year:

Warrington College of Business 34tn place
Levin College of Law 46th place
College of Engineering- 24th place
College of Education 53rd place
College of Medicine 48th place (for research)

Gainesville's Cotton Club hosted acts like Ray Charles, B.B. King in the 1950s


COTTON CLUB, from page 1

Residents who lived in the houses were
nearby a church, entertainment and shop-
ping, she said.
The Cotton Club building, the focal
point of the community, opened as the
Perry Theater in the 1940s.
Around 1950, it became a nightclub,
named after the famous Cotton Club in
Harlem in New York City, where well-
known black performers entertained white-


only audiences.
In Gainesville, though, the Cotton Club
catered mostly to black audiences. As part
of the travel circuit for black performers
in the early 1950s, the club booked dance
bands and singers such as Ray Charles,
Bo Diddley and Brook Benton, drawing
crowds from Ocala and Jacksonville.
It's uncertain why the club closed about
two years later. Filer said UF students from
the North, who were not accustomed to
Southern segregation, started to attend
shows and raised the ire of city officials.


saran HSU / Aingator
Supporters of the unfinished Cotton Club Museum and Cultural Center attend a fish
fry fundraiser Saturday afternoon. The event was held to raise money to help restore
the old club and other buildings on the property.


The club shut down and reopened as the
Blue Note until the late 1950s, when it be-
came a furniture warehouse until 1970.
Filer said the property was purchased in
the mid-1990s by Mt. Olive A.M.E. Church
next door to the property. A board of direc-
tors decided it could best benefit the neigh-
borhood as a museum and cultural center.
Isaacs, interested in combining historical
preservation with environmentally friendly
building techniques, joined the project
several years later. Construction picked up
in April 2004, when the project received a
$350,000 grant, she said.
Since then, workers have elevated the
building and repaired its foundations, and
plan to start soon on the roof. The main
building could be completed by June 2009,
Isaacs said.
In addition, the project has received
a $100,000 grant from Gainesville's
Community Redevelopment Agency to
convert the grocery store into an outdoor
cafe, she said. One of the houses, where
Isaacs keeps an office, has already been
completed.
Volunteers, as well as Alachua County
work crews sentenced to community ser-
vice, clean bricks and remove nails from
old boards every week, she said. But the
entire neighborhood has been involved in
the project.
Otis Stover, a member of the board of di-
rectors, said his family has owned property
in the neighborhood since 1900. Though he
wasn't old enough to go to the Cotton Club,
Stover said his mother sold tickets when the
building was a movie theater, and he often
played on the property when it included the
warehouse.
"It was the perfect project to bring my
neighborhood back to life," Stover said. "Of


course I was going to be a part of that."
Philip Surles, a UF doctoral student, got
involved in the project as a master's degree
student in 2003.
"It's really interesting to see how the
future is imagined by drawing on the past,"
Surles said. "It was kind of interesting to see
them use the physical transformation of the
Cotton Club as community rejuvenation."
"It was the perfect project to bring
my neighborhood back to life."
Otis Stover
board of directors member

Others have also showed interest in the
project, Isaacs said.
Students at nearby Joseph Williams
Elementary School have used the project to
make a documentary on segregation.
Stephanie Evans, a UF women's studies
and African-American studies professor, is
mentioning the club in a book she is writing
on the history of jazz in Florida.
"When you see construction going on,
students getting involved; books being writ-
ten, events being planned, this is absolutely
the most rewarding time," Isaacs said.
Isaacs said she hopes the project can
span generations. As the neighborhood
ages, she said, older people sit home alone,
while children come home from school to
empty houses.
"What if both of those came to the
Cotton Club?" she said. "That's what I hope
this will be, a place where everyone comes
together."

Adams hurt in loss to LSU


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

Spectators at McKethan Stadium sat in
silence as freshman standout Josh Adams
writhed in pain under an overcast sky.
The second baseman fouled a 1-2 pitch into
his left ankle in the bottom of the sixth inning
of UF's 6-3 loss to LSU on Sunday. Adams was
carried to the dugout by two teammates, where
he spent the rest of the afternoon on crutches.
X-rays after the game were negative, and he
was diagnosed with a bone bruise.
Adams leads the team in home runs (five),
slugging percentage (.633) and walks (17), and
he is second in batting average (.367).
"That hurts," pitcher Tommy Toledo said of
Adams' injury. "Hopefully, he'll be back. It's
better to be safe and just keep him out."
Clayton Pisani figures to return to the start-
ing lineup if Adams is forced to miss extended
time. Pisani entered the season as the Gators'
starting second baseman but has seen little time
in the lineup recently as Adams emerged as one
of the Gators' most productive players.
Pisani has started 18 games and is batting
.281 with two home runs. After the game,


O'Sullivan was optimistic that Adams would
make a swift return.
"I think he's going to be fine," he sail. "I
haven't had a chance to talk to our trainers, but
hopefully, he'll be all right."
Sunday's loss kept the Gators (20-6, 7-2
Southeastern Conference) from claiming their
second sweep in conference play. UF won
Friday's opener 8-5 and blasted LSU 7-1 on
Saturday.
"Today was just one of those days."
Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach

If there were any power outag'es in
Gainesville on Sunday, it's likely because there
was so much of it on display at Perry Field.
Eight of the nine runs scored came by way
of the long ball. Seven of the eight homers were
over the right field wall.
"Today was just one of those days,"
O'Sullivan said. "There was wind blowing to-
wards right, so anything hit toward the right
had a chance of going out. They connected

UF FOOTBALL

Spikes steps up as leader


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

In a dreary locker room after a 42-30
pounding by Georgia last season, Brandon
Spikes stood up with something to say.
He apologized.
His apology was for being the middle
linebacker on a team that had just allowed
a freshman running back to pummel them
for 188 yards and three touchdowns. UF's
defense had just given Knowshon Moreno
- in only his second career start Heisman
Trophy hype for next season.
I From that point on, Spikes knew his time
spent in the shadow of captains Tony Joiner
and Derrick Harvey was over.
As for how Spikes responded the next
week, just ask Vanderbilt. The Commodores
finished with a paltry 93 yards on the ground,
and Spikes called it his best game ever, finish-
ing with 14 tackles.
Now there's no disputing who the leader
of UF's toddler defense is.
"He's a lot more vocal," tight end
Cornelius Ingrain said of Spikes. "It's just
like being the quarterback on offense. The
middle linebacker gets all the respect and
demands all the respect. You almost have to


be a leader."
Spikes has done more than "almost" be-
coming a leader.
"Brandon Spikes has done everything
- and I say everything with an exclamation
point, underlined twice that we've asked
of him in the off-season," coach Urban Meyer
said.
And, perhaps most
importantly, Spikes knows
he's the leader. Last season,
Spikes didn't want to take
the leadership reigns from
Joiner or Harvey. But for
a guy that's been a leader
since his Pop Warner days,
Spikes he knew that his deep,
gruff voice would have to be heard soon.
"When I was growing up, guys just always
followed me from Pop Warner to middle
school to high school," Spikes said. "They
know that I love the game with the energy
I bring. It's a lot easier (now) knowing that
guys respect me and they'll listen to me.
"This year, I feel like it's my defense."
There's no doubt that if the Gators' de-
fense struggles like it did last season, much
of the blame will fall on Spikes. But at least

UF places second at SECs


* THE GATORS LOST BY THE
SLIMMEST OF MARGINS.

By BOBBY CALLOVI.
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

With just one rotation left in the
Southeastern -Conference champion-
ship, the Gators needed a score of
49.225 on the balance beam to take
down No. 1 Georgia, who had already
finished and could only watch from
the side.
Just like the dual meet against UGA
earlier in the season, it would come
down to Amanda Castillo.
She needed a 9.825 to clinch a
share of the SEC title, a score that she
achieved all but three times on the
beam during the season.
Instead, Castillo slipped off and was
deducted .5 from her score, sealing the
win for the Bulldogs.
Coach Rhonda Faehn knew almost
right away that her team's beam score
of 49.175 would not be enough to re-
peat as SEC champions.


"I knew that we would have to go
out and hit very dean routines, and we
couldn't afford getting 9.8s and expect
to win," Faehn said. "I felt it wouldn't
go in our favor since we didn't have
our best on the beam, and we definitely
could have put ourselves in a better
situation."
For the second time this season, No.
3 UF finished just .025 the smallest
margin possible behind the de-
fending national champions' score of
197.35.
The Gators would have to settle for
a second-place tie with No. 6 Alabama
- it finished with its highest event total
of the day on vault to catch UF with
a score of 197.325.
After the meet, Faehn talked with
Castillo to make sure she knew that
the loss was not just her fault and to re-
mind Castillo of her importance to the
team in the next couple of weeks.
"I talked with her and wanted to
find out what she was thinking about
when she went in, why she made the
mistake and what we need to do to fix

Toledo allows three HRs in

worst outing of young career

on couple balls and that's the
way it goes."
Toledo (4-1, 2.70 ERA) had
the worst outing of his young
career, allowing four runs on
three home runs.
It-was the first game since
an 11-2 loss to Brown on
March 8 in which the Gators
never led.
Tigers designated hitter
Matt Clark blasted a two-run
shot to left in the top of the
second to give LSU a 2-0 lead.
It was the first of two hom-
ers for Clark. The next batter,
Leon Landry, hit a solo home
run to left to give the Tigers a
3-0 lead.


"I was trying to get the ball
down as low as I can, but they
made some good hits," Toledo
said. "There really isn't much
else you can do. You've got
to hit your spots. I missed a
couple, and they took advan-
tage of it."
Shortstop Cole Figueroa
did his best to
keep UF in the
game. Figueroa

Energy and big frame make for tough matchup

he'll know what happened when something does
go wrong.
"This off-season, I took time to get the whole de-
fensive scheme. Where guys need to be at," Spikes
said. "If something pops, I know what happened. A
guy wasn't in this gap or a guy wasn't in this gap."
The first-team All-Southeastern Conference
linebacker is almost always in his gap. When asked
what the hardest hit he's ever seen Spikes give, line-
backer Dustin Doe had to pause for a second.
"Where do I start?" Doe said. "Spikes is pretty
consistent. He's big, he's fast, he's strong. He's li-
able to give somebody a big hit at any point in time.
There's been so many."
Added Spikes: "When I see (a running back com-
ing up the middle), I go for the big hit. If he makes
me miss, then that's one thing, but if I make the hit
he's going to feel it."


Combine Spikes' energy and leadership with his
6-3, 245-pound frame which is 4 pounds heavier
than Jermaine Cunningham, a starting defensive
end last year and it's a not an ideal matchup for
anyone. Doe chuckles and says that they sometimes
tell Spikes his "true calling" is on the defensive line.
"This off-season, I took time to get the
whole defensive scheme."
Brandon Spikes
UF sophomore linebacker

"He's big and real wide," Doe said. "Some play-
ers try to go around, some players try to go through,
but he has great football position and can bend
and has real good leverage. That's pretty much his
strength. To be so big, he's a real flexible guy, and
he can get underneath the shoulder pads of running.
backs."


Gators claim a share of all four event titles, look ahead to NCAA Regionals in Gainesville

that," Faehn said. "If it happens again when we are at home
or in Athens, we need to be able to fix that, because we need
to depend on her, because she is a solid competitor she is a
rock."
Faehn also said the Gators lost the meet because of a combi-
nation of mistakes, not just their performance on beam.
In the first event for UF, the floor exercise, Faehn said the
team looked tight and made a few errors.
"We had a few mistakes on the floor, two mishaps on the
tumbling passes and another athlete went out of bounds, so
that was three areas we could have been higher," Faehn said.
Despite the disappointing second-place finish, there were a


few bright spots for UF.
A Gator claimed a share for first place in each event-
Melanie Sinclair on the uneven bars, Ashley Reed on vault,
Corey Hartung on the beam and Castillo on the floor.
Even with a few high points, the Gators
had to deal with the tough thought of losing
to the Bulldogs in such a difficult fashion
with the score being so dose.
Hartung said she expects the second de-
feat to the Bulldogs by .025 will motivate the
team at nationals.
"I don't know how to describe the feel-
Hartung ing," Hartung said. "We were disappointed,
we were mad about losing by such a small
margin of points, but this will make us tougher and stronger


and make us work harder at nationals."
UF will not have much time to dwell on the loss, as it
has to start thinking about and preparing for the NCAA
Championships.
The first step towards making it to the meet in Athens, Ga.,
on April 24-26 is finishing in the top two at the regional qualify-
ing meet on April 12 in Gainesville.
If the Gators do advance to the national championship
as expected, they might get a third chance to knock off the
Bulldogs.
Hartung hopes to pull a page out of the Bulldogs' book by
winning nationals after losing at SECs, but she knows they still
have to get through regionals first.
"We are going to continue to doing what we are doing and
take it one meet at a time," she said.

Gators sweep Tigers for first time in program history


* UF HAD NOT BEATEN LSU
SINCE 2004.


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org


The Gators were on a mission
to erase three years of futility with
three days of prosperity.
Behind lights-out pitching and
timely hitting, No. 3 UF (40-2, 12-
1 Southeastern Conference) came
away with a series sweep of No.
8 LSU (29-7, 8-3 SEC), breaking an
11-game losing streak dating back
to 2004.
"It's huge,"- UF coach Tim
Walton said. "When you build a
program, the measuring stick is,
can you beat the best teams in your
league?"
It's safe to say that after
Sunday's 7-0 victory at Pressly
Stadium, UF's softball program
measures up just fine.
Junior Stacey Nelson (25-2) got
the start in a rematch of Saturday's
first-game showdown with LSU
ace Dani Hofer (16-4).
Nelson threw a complete-game
shutout, letting up just three hits
against five strikeouts.
"I'll take Stacey Nelson on my
-team any day," said senior Mary
Ratliff of the 'ace's performance.
"She's amazing. Every time we
put her on the mound, we're going
to win.
"That's the mindset of our en-
tire team."
Ratliff was one of three Gators
to hit a home run in the final con-
test O the weekend.
UF got out to an early lead in
the first inning when junior Ali
Gardiner drove in freshman Aja
Paculba with a sharp one-out


single to center field.
Sophomore Francesca Enea
came up to the plate next, and she
delivered a two-run bomb over the
left field wall that left the park in
the blink of an eye.
The three early runs chased
Hofer from the game before the
Tigers could record their second
out.
"Dani Hofer is one of the best
pitchers in the country," said
Gardiner, one of the many UF hit-
ters to express respect for the LSU
hurler.
The Gators would add two
more runs in the third inning
when Ratliff lined a double into
the right-field gap, scoring Paculba
and Gardiner from second and first
respectively.
With a 5-0 lead, Gardiner and
Ratliff each added a solo home run
in the fifth inning,
putting an excla-
mation point on
the weekend.
Softball "It's fun, when
you see your team,
everybody getting
on one of the top pitchers not only
in the SEC, but in America," Ratliff
said. "That makes our young team
excited."
Without question, the most ex-
citing game of the series came on
Saturday, when UF ended LSU's
17-game win streak in a 6-1 deci-
sion.
Nelson went the distance, al-
lowing one unearned run as she
outpitched Hofer for the first time
in their college careers.
"Oh my gosh! It's the biggest
relief to know .that we can beat
them and beat them good," said an
elated Nelson after the first day of
games. "It's phenomenal."


Game 2 was a reminder that
the Gators can pitch even without
Nelson in the circle.
Stephanie Brombacher took the
ball and pitched a gem in the big-
gest game of her freshman season.
She scattered five hits over
seven innings, outdueling a strong
performance from Tigers sopho-
more Cody Trahan.
In the second inning, UF
manufactured a run when Ratliff
reached first on a error, moved to
second on a Tiffany DeFelice sac-
rifice bunt, stole third and even-
tually scored on a sacrifice fly by
junior Kristina JHilberth.
Freshman Megan Bush would
add the second run of the inning
when she drove the ball off of the
center-field wall.
LSU center fielder Jazz Jackson
went back to try to make a leap-
ing catch when the ball slammed
off the top of the fence, allowing
Bush to take advantage on the base
paths.
As she headed to third, Walton
sent her home, where she slid
under the tag from Tigers catcher
Killian Roessner for an inside-the-
park home run.
"I just saw an opening," Bush
said. "She kind of opened her legs,
and I slid to the plate."
Bush had been struggling so
badly with the bat that Walton
pinch-hit for her with the bases
loaded in the previous game.
"I haven't been the go-to hitter
right now," said Bush. "I would
much rather have the lead. It
didn't bother me."
After that two-run half inning,
the pitchers would match zeros
on the way to a 2-0 win for the
Gators.
The importance of beating LSU

6-1 win in Game I of Saturday's doubleheader against No. 8 LSU at
Pressly Stadium. The Gators had never previously swept the Tigers.


resonated throughout the team,
and many players said the confi-
dence boost will help them finish
the season strong.


"It means that if we can beat
LSU, we can beat anybody,"
Nelson said. "They've been our
Everest since I've been here."
