Moseley selects online voting committee


By ILEANA MORALES

imorales@alligator.org

Members of a committee
formed to investigate the possi-
bility for online voting in Student


Government elections were cho-
sen last week and should provide
recommendations by May 1.
Students for Online Voting, a
student group known as SOLVe,
filed a lawsuit against UF on
Feb. 22 after the UF Supreme


Court ruled that an online-voting
amendment would be unconsti-
tutional.
Government The court
said online vot-
ing could inter-
fere with SG's ability to prevent


voter coercion.
Ryan Moseley, Student Body
president, wrote in an executive
order last week that the com-
mittee is expected to provide an
independent report on the "fea-.
sibility" of online voting for SG


elections, specifically concerning
security and privacy.
The committee is also charged
with looking at how online-vot-
ing systems have worked at other

Students go on hunger strike for investment protest


* GROUP WANTS TO UF TO CHANGE
INVESTMENT POLICY.

By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

Until they eat with Bernie, they won't
eat at all.
Eleven members of a student-protest


group urging UF to make its investments
transparent dug into a vegetarian meal
they said could be their last of the semes-
ter outside Tigert Hall on Wednesday. -
The students said they plan to strike, or
starve, until UF President Bernie Machen
agrees to meet with them over lunch to
discuss socially responsible investment
plans for UF's $1.2 billion endowment.
The meal Wednesday steamed cab-
bage, fried plantains, rice and beans, and


tempeh curry was eaten after an 11 a.m.
news conference outside
Tigert; the building that
houses Machen's office.
Members of the pro-
test group, Students for
a Democratic Society,
have been pushing for
disclosure of UF's in-
Machen vestments for nearly a
year. The group wants to create a commit-


tee of students and faculty to advise the
Board of Trustees, UF's highest governing
body, on socially responsible investing of
UF's endowments.
The group's aim is a challenge to
UF's current endowment policy, 'which
leaves investment decisions up to UF's
Investment Corporation, a non-profit
organization exempt from open public-

UF to hear

'Welcome


to Moe's'
UF will bring Moe's Southwest Grill to
campus in fall.
And Chili's Too, too.
Gator Dining Services and UF Business
Services Division are investing $1.5 mil-
lion to replace all six eateries currently
at the Racquet Club Dining Center with
those two this fall, wrote Jill Rodriguez,
Gator Dining marketing manager, in an
e-mail.
"Students have requested us to bring
Moe's to campus, and we felt Chili's Too
would be a nice complement for the loca'
tion," Rodriguez wrote.
Chili's Too is a version of the standard
Chili's Grill & Bar with a modified menu
for on-the-go customers.
Specifies of the campus menus for
both restaurants are still being worked
on, Rodriguez wrote.
She wrote that she didn't know ex-
actly when the dining center would be
closed for construction or for how long,
but it would remain open the rest of this
semester.

UF sophomore remembered at candlelight vigil


* CARMEN PETERSON WAS STRUCK
BY A VAN WHILE RIDING HER BICYCLE.

By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org

Carmen "Cita" Peterson had a passion to
explore. When she arrived on campus in 2006,
she wanted to see it all: the campus landmarks,
the city hot spots, the local charm.
It was all part of her zest for life, said Cory
Myers, a UF engineering sophomore who met


Peterson freshman year.
It's one of the qualities Myers said he
would miss most about Peterson, who died
Tuesday evening after she was hit by a van
while riding her bicycle.
"Whenever she was out, she just had a
good time," Myers said. "She really did em-
body living with no regrets."
Peterson was a UF recreation sports and
tourism sophomore from Fort Lauderdale. She
was one of the first people Myers, of Atlanta,
met when he arrived on campus.
"She brought a lot of life to my first days at
UF," he said.


After two years of knowing each other,
Myers said Peterson's propensity to have fun
continued to rub off on him.
He said her enthusiasm for Alpha Phi
Omega, a co-ed fraternity of which she was
a member, convinced him to
Local pledge.
News "Cita was passionate about
the things that she liked and
the things that she did," Myers
said. "She sort of showed me what it was like
to really mean what you do.".
About 100 friends of Peterson's, many of
whom are also members of Alpha Phi Omega,


held a candlelit vigil for her Wednesday night
at Keys Residential Complex on campus,
where Peterson lived.
Peterson's parents and roommate declined
to comment.
Charges against Charles Skeen, the 55-
year-old driver of the van that hit Peterson,
are pending further investigation, according
to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol.
Peterson was attempting to cross County
Road 325 on the Hawthorne Bicycle Trail
when she was struck at around 5 p.m.
She was wearing a helmet and died at the
scene, according to the report.


STUDENT LIFE

UF entrepreneurs break into the business world early


By ALYSSA LaRENZIE
Alligator Writer

Andre Smith has a staff of eight,
a Samsung Blackjack that constantly
rings and the responsibility of han-
dling dollar figures most college
students have never imagined.
And he manages everything
from his two-bedroom apartment.
In spring 2006, Smith, a fifth-year
industrial engineering student, set
up Tropical Connection; LLC. He
was inspired to start the vacation
traveling company after he success-
fully organized a trip to Jamaica for
20 of his friends.
Smith is a successful college
entrepreneur one in a growing
trend of college students across the
nation setting up companies.
Instead of waiting for the perfect
opportunity, these young entrepre-
neurs invest a little money on a big
idea using the Intemet as a launch-
ing pad.
Students are starting businesses
more often than in the past, said
Bill Rossi, associate director of the
Center for Entrepreneurship &
Innovation at UF.
The Internet has helped college
entrepreneurs by making the uptake
easier, quicker and cheaper, Rossi
said.
Fewer assets means fewer risks,
so many students don't want to wait
to finish their schooling to launch a
business.
"You have very little to lose.
Tomorrow it will be more," Rossi
said. "The best time to start is now."

Getting Started
Not many have money to play
with in college, but three UF student
entrepreneurs borrowed money
to transform their concept into a
money-making reality.
Smith's initial investment on the
travel agency was about $15,000,
mostly contributed by family and
friends. The money went to ar-
ranging contracts with airlines and
hotels.
"I felt pretty overwhelmed," the
22-year-old said. "I'd never written
a check for $10,000 before."
Tyler Callahan, a UF advertis-
ing alumnus, and Brett Frierson, a
UF management alumnus, became
Smith's business partners.
In their first year, the three made
enough revenue to expand the travel
company, opening up more trip op-
tions for customers, he said.
And while Smith sunk more than
$10,000 to get his business running,
Nick Moskowitz started an online

UF student Nicholas L. Moskowitz stands next to a silk screen used to create one of the many T-shirts
sold by his company, ThreadPit Inc.


humorous T-shirt business with
about $700 from student loans and
borrowed money.
In the summer of 2004,
Moskowitz, a UF computer engi-
neering student at the time, and a
friend, David Baummer, launched
ThreadPit.com from their makeshift
office in a bedroom.
"We did nothing but eat and
sleep ThreadPit," 29-year-old
Moskowitz said, reminiscing about
his beginnings.
When the business took off that
summer, Moskowitz dropped his
classes to focus on the Web site full
time.
But his business partner,
Baummer, left ThreadPit to continue
his studies at SFCC.
' Almost four years into the busi-
ness, orders come in from around
the world at all times of the day and
night, making enough money for
him and his wife to live comfortably,
he said. Moskowitz is now back at
UF studying sociology.
Suzanne Delica aspires to be
equally successful as Smith and
Moskowitz.
In late January, the UF sopho-
more introduced an e-business,
where she sells high-fashion clothes
at affordable prices, named Simply
Delicious Fashions.
The trademark is registered un-


der her parents' company, Delica
Enterprises Inc.
Now Delica is pursuing her own
business with the moral and finan-
cial support of her parents. The 20-
year-old raised an initial capital of
about $5,000.
"I'm excited for the future.
I'm excited to see what I
can do."
Andre Smith
UF industrial engineering senior

She purchases items wholesale in
fashion meccas like New York and
Miami from designers like BCBG
and Michael Antonio to sell on her
site.
Though she has yet to see a profit,
Delica has big plans and believes it's
her mission to bring high fashion to
Gainesville. "I really want people to
understand what clothing means,"
she said about her vision for the
virtual boutique. "Your clothes
shouldn't make you; you should
make your clothes."

Virtually Savvy
Smith, Moskowitz and Delica
may have invested in different busi-
ness ventures, but all three used
a college student obsession the


Intemet.
"(Students) are on the Internet
all the time anyway," Rossi said, "so
it's natural that students would start
businesses on the Intemet."
For example, Moskowitz de-
signed the entire Web site and the
computer software for the T-shirt
company.
And for Delica, the ideal option
of opening a boutique is not fea-
sible, so the Internet seemed like the
perfect vehicle to get her business
rolling.
However, for Smith, a Web site
alone was not enough to make his
business a success.
By October 2006, just four months
before their first scheduled spring
break, they still hadn't booked a sin-
gle trip. Smith realized the agency
needed more local exposure.
Smith and his partners started
promoting the travel agency
by handing out fliers around
Gainesville and visiting clients'
apartments to close the sale.
"We made it more personal," he
said. "People like face-to-face inter-
action."
After the intensive promotion,
the agency ended up booking 80
percent on their first trip.
Smith said now he is using the
Web site to reach college students
from other states and aims to reach


the $1 million mark in sales this
year.

Risky Business
Entrepreneurs start off with big
plans, but often overlook potential
roadblocks.
"There are lots of risks out there,"
Rossi said, "but the entrepreneur
doesn't see them as risks but rather
obstacles to overcome."
Almost four years later,
Moskowitz faces a trademark dis-
pute with one of his entrepreneur
idols, Ralph Lauren.
The design in dispute is one of
the most popular shirts he sells,
and the one he is most proud of,
the "Tragically Hip Polo Shirt." The
polo pokes fun at designer brands
- it shows a jockey.falling off a.
horse. Although Smith and Delica
haven't encountered anything quite
as challenging, both find it demand-
ing to balance running their compa-
nies and earning their engineering
degrees.
Smith stretches his time between
Tropical Connection and 17 cred-
its, so he schedules his week on a
spreadsheet.
For Delica, starting a business is
still not as hard as some of her elec-
trical engineering classes.
"I feel like I use both sides of my
brain," she said. "When I'm kind of
stressed out with school, I focus on
SDF (her online store)."

What's Next
For these business-savvy stu-
dents, their new company is not the
end-all, but the beginning of self-
-made opportunities.
Delica hopes that in about two
years she'll raise enough money to
open a smallboutique in Gainesville,
she said.
But Delica's not getting her de-
gree in vain. She intends to work
as an electrical engineer and hire
employees to runher stores.
"It's going to be a challenge,"
Delica said, "but I'm up for it."
Moskowitz said he doesn't plan
on keeping the Web store forever.
He is considering getting a master's
in business management, so he can
learn how to operate on a larger
scale.
Unlike his peers, Smithjust hopes
to take his island travel agency in
new directions, such as corporate
vacations.
Thousands of dollars later, Smith
has his eyes set on millions more.
"I'm excited for the future," he
said. "I'm excited to see what I can
do."

Residents sue rapper Plies for 2006 club shooting


Rapper's bodyguards shot five locals


By WILL AFFORD
Alligator Writer
wpafford@alligator.org

Five Gainesville residents are
suing a Florida rapper, his record
label and a local club after they
were shot during a 2006 concert.
Billy Dee Williams, Michael
Lamar Daymon, Edwin Devasco
Faircloth, Steve Ruben Jean-
Jacques and Dorian Shannel
Johnson are suing rapper Plies,
whose real name is Algertfod
Lanier Washington. They are also
suing night club 238 West and


Washington's record label, Slip-N-
Slide Records Inc., for compensa-
tory damages.
Washington is best known for
his 2007 single "Shawty" featuring
T-Pain.
According to the suit, after
Washington's microphone was
cut off during his show at the West
University Avenue establishment,
he "became enraged and a fistfight
ensued."
Tory Denard Carnegie and
Ronnell Lawrence Lavatte,
Washington's security guards,
then pulled out guns and began


firing, the suit stated. The victims
were each shot in different places,
including the foot, neck, arm, ab-
domen and cheek.
According to court records,
both Lavatte and Carnegie pleaded
no contest to criminal charges and
received prison sentences.
Washington pleaded no contest
to possession of a concealed fire-
arm but was not sent to prison, the
records stated.
But Christopher Chestnut, the
attorney representing the five
shooting victims, said Washington
is also to blame.


"Plies is unequivocally respon-
sible for his entourage," Chestnut
said. "They shot on his behalf."
Washington knew or should
have known that guns were not
allowed in the club, and knew or
should have known
that his employees
Local had them, Chestnut
: said.
Chestnut said
that while he is not
trying to control what Washington
says, Washington's lyrics pro-
moted violence toward his clients
that night.
"What we're saying is, 'Leave
that on the record and don't bring


that into the club,'" Chestnut said.
Messages left at Slip-N-Slide
were not returned by press time.
Chestnut said his clients
deserve to be compensated for
medical bills, loss of pay while
they were recovering and other
psychological damages they suf-
fered because of the shootings that
night.
"Some of these people were
staring down the barrel of a gun
just before it was fired," he said.
Chestnut said he is also trying
to send a message to Washington
and his label.
"It is not cool to go into a club
and shoot up everyone," he said.

Christian students assemble reverse confessional


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

A loosely constructed booth, made of
PVC pipe and covered by maroon cloth,
sat quietly on the Plaza of the Americas on
Wednesday. A small, white sign invited-per-
plexed looks and slowed paces of passers-by
with its one-word label: "Confessions."
But there was no priest inside the box.
No offer of absolution or suggestions for
penance.
Instead, a group of Christian students
sought to invite the other side a listener.
They wanted to apologize for what they


deemed their own moral shortfalls in not
living how Jesus intended. They're sorry
for the bad image Christians might have on
campus.
Russell McMullen, a UF sophomore
involved in Campus Crusade for Christ,
organized the reverse confessional.
"We used this to try and let people take
a fair look at Christ and not just prejudge
and write it off as a hateful and intolerant
religion," McMullen said.
He said some students who saw the booth
were confused at first and thought they were
being invited to confess their own sins. They
were quickly assured that McMullen and his


friends would be the ones giving the face-to-
face confessions in the tent.
"Otherwise, I don't think we would have
gotten anybody to talk to," McMullen said.
"We want to point people to the
real Jesus."
Graham Wigle
UF freshman


Judging, hurting and not showing love to
people were named as the Christian group's

McMullen didn't get more than 20 stu-
dents inside in the booth today, which stood
under the shade of trees on the Plaza, but
he expects more throughout the week. He'll
man the operation intil Friday.
Graham Wigle, a UF freshman, took over
the booth while McMullen went to class.
Wigle said students walking across cam-
pus often get inaccurate representations of
Christianity from sign-wielding preachers
on Turlington Plaza.
The confessional is also meant to encour-
age Christians to be more humble, he said.
"We're imperfect. We stink," Wigle said.
"We want to point people to the real Jesus."

Summer Break

Commission should

hold off on major votes
On Tuesday night, Gainesville City Commissioner
Jeanna Mastrodicasa, chairwoman of the Public Safety
Committee and UF's assistant vice president of stu-
dent affairs, held a forum on campus to discuss proposed
changes before the commission that may change the face of
Gainesville's nightlife.
These include an attempt to solve downtown and midtown
problems of violence, overcrowding and underage drinking.
Mastrodicasa sought to give students a chance to voice their
opinions and concerns, which were recorded for the commis-
sioners to refer to when they make their votes on proposed
ordinances this summer.
So, while most of UF's full-time students are off spend-
ing their summers out of town, the city commission will be
discussing changes to the city's regulations that may greet
students come fall.
While Mastrodicasa was gracious enough to hold the forum
so that students would feel like they were a part of the deci-
sion-making process, it's hard to believe the timing of these
meetings to discuss issues directly related to the university is
accidental.
This is not the first time the city commission has made
choices without a major part of its constituency UF students
- in mind.
Last May, the Public Safety Committee continued the dis-
cussion of changes to the roam towing regulations ordinance
and discussed the concerns brought forward by an attorney
representing Ultimate and Elite towing companies.
In July 2006, the commission discussed how to deal with
underage drinking in the context of Gainesville neighbor-
hoods, where one citizen informed the commission that more
underage drinkers would be caught if police arrived in un-
marked cars.
And two years ago in June, the city commission decided to
make no changes to an ordinance that would maintain the bar
closing hours at 2 a.m., and removed the topic from the public
safety committee's pending referral list.
Though we can't expect the commission to stop business
as usual when spring semester ends, it seems to be that more
controversial student issues are brought up at times when little
alternative opinion would be expressed.
We understand that many students don't vote in local elec-
tions and even fewer attend city commission meetings regular-
ly, but that doesn't give the commission the right to completely
- or giving them the benefit of the doubt, unintentionally
- disregard a generous portion of Gainesville residents.
Many of us are only here for the four or so years we have to
complete a degree, but to deny our impact on the Gainesville
community would be ignorant and unfair.
The University of Florida as an institution spends an ad-
ditional $283 million annually on goods and services, and the
university employs 16 percent of the Gainesville work force.
Because of this large student population, the close to 50,000
students in Gainesville were vital in helping a UF administra-
tor, Jeanna Mastrodicasa, win a seat on the city commission in
spring 2006.
While Mastrodicasa clearly understands the need for
students to have a voice in city politics, as evidenced by her
hosting the forum and record for working closely with the uni-
versity, we wish that concern were extended to the rest of the
commission when deciding what gets onto the agenda during
the summer.
We think it would be better to hold off on something and
wait to make an informed decision, rather than act on some-
thing that may not be the best solution for all residents.

have seen the promotions, watched videos and listened
to several computer-savvy friends explain to me why the
Intemet should be a free and uncensored flow of enter-'
tainment and information. I used to agree.
While I have always been a strong supporter of net neu-
trality, or preventing Intemet providers from speeding up
or slowing down Web content based on its source, owner-
ship or destination, I do feel that there should be boundaries
for some of the content available online.
I'm sure you have heard of YouTube, MySpace,
Ebaumsworld and other Web sites often used to watch vid-
eos. Don't hesitate to admit that anytime you see or hear of
a new hilarious or vulgar video, you cannot wait to share it
with a friend. We all do it myself included.
And while it is always fun to laugh at another's expense,
I have seen a few videos lately that are purely distasteful
and uncalled for.
One that sticks out in my mind is a video of two girls sit-
ting on a round-n-round at a park, and a dirt bike is being
used to spin the ride at frightening speeds. After the forces
become too much to handle, the girls are thrown off the
spinning ride and obviously injured. I'll admit I laughed
the first few times I watched this scene, but now that I think
about it, it would be embarrassing for the girls who were
injured as well as their families.
This is just one of the many disturbing things I have seen
on YouTube. I'm sure you could think of something even
more unsettling.
I thought that was the worst I had seen so far, until I
read a news article about a video that showed six teens
beating up a 16-year-old girl. It is unclear whether the short
clip could be seen on YouTube or MySpace, but from the
comments left below the article, it appears that the video is
available online for anyone to see.
After reading people's responses, I realized something
needs to be done about this.
While you may not believe it's a big deal, think of anyone

S B As I see all these videos on
sites like YouTube, I cannot help
but think of my younger siblings
Rebecca Ganzak watching clips of beatings, inappro-

Let's face it the youth of
America is turning more toward the
Internet for entertainment than to TV screens.
According to a 2006 study from Jupiter Research, online
users spend as much time surfing the Web as they do watch-
ing TV. The Internet, the study shows, is becoming the most
important medium for many Americans. However, I can
imagine that the Internet has far surpassed TV in popularity
since this study.
So if the airwaves are being monitored by government
organizations, why is the Intemet still so open? I have heard
such excuses as using the Internet requires a bit more effort
than just pressing the power button on a TV, but is it really
as difficult as we think it is for a child to access the World
Wide Web? I think not.
I understand that sites such as YouTube and MySpace
have regulations and disclaimers. They even have a crew
of people who surf videos throughout the day to weed
out the inappropriate material. While this is beneficial for
these sites, what about the rest of.the material that may be
deemed as unsuitable?
As the Intemet becomes increasingly popular, steps need
to be taken to keep up with the technology.
Our government should provide free downloadable
software that protects underage children from viewing po-
tentially harmful material. Just like they've.regulated televi-
sion and radio, the Intemet is no less dangerous.

Letters to the Editor
GPS system will improve RTS service
In Wednesday's Alligator, Greg Perry
asked if there was any true value gained
from installing GPS on RTS buses. Mr. Perry
appears to assume that the only benefit
from GPS is providing knowledge about
wait times to students and the commu-
nity. Knowledge of wait times for students
is merely an ancillary public benefit that
comes with the system.
The GPS's primary functions are facilitat-
ing efficient route design when coupled with
ridership information and to maintain more
accurate route timing through the spacing of
multiple buses on the same route.
Students will not only be able to tell when
buses are coming, but should experience a
more streamlined transit system as well.
The funding for this project is coming
from the Student Traffic Court's reserve
account, which is primarily used for capital
improvements to parking and transporta-
tion on campus.
Some other projects that are commonly
tackled with traffic court reserves are the
construction of more covered bus shelters or
repaving parking lots throughout campus.
This money comes from parking tickets
and does not involve money from student
tuition and fees or the state legislator.


As to the "real problems" Mr. Perry ad-
dresses in his letter, Student Government
has been among the fiercest advocates for
differential tuition, opposing state budget
cuts, and for supporting the right of the
Florida Board of Governors to make deci-
sions about the future of higher education
in Florida.

Veterans highlight need to end Iraq war
Tuesday evening, in a packed room, sev-
eral Iraq War veterans spoke of their experi-
ences while on the ground in Iraq. Their aim
was to simply inform the American people
of the realities of the war. The content was
not something that you will see on the eve-
ning news because it was reality.
Their weapons this night were truth
and blunt honesty. Their testimonies were
candid and untainted by the filter of main-
stream culture. They each spoke for them-
selves from their own wounded consciences.
There were no excuses, only realities of an
unjust war, by their words, not mine.
They bore part of and witness to atroci-


ties, be they accidental or intentional. Their
initial purpose was to liberate an oppressed
people, but ultimately found themselves
to be the oppressors, not by want, but by
necessity.
Remember, these are volunteers who
were willing to give their lives fighting for
us. Their cause was just then and it is just
now. When faced with realities, Americans
know what is right and what is wrong.
There is a consensus. This war is wrong.
They only ask us to fight for what is right.
End the war. Bring the troops home.

Column attack on McCain misguided
Week after week, Joshua Frederickson
writes impassioned columns bashing any
thought that is on this side of far-left. I en-
joy political discourse, but only when it is
informed. I do not have room here to detail
his numerous errors and misguided asser-
tions, so I will focus on his attack against
McCain over waterboarding. He claims.that
McCain's anti-torture "convictions" disap-
peared when he voted against the Senate's
ban.


Had Mr. Frederickson taken a brief mo-
ment to look for McCain's rationale, he
would have found this:
"It is unfortunate that the reluctance of
officials to stand by this straightforward
conclusion has produced in the Congress
such frustration that we are today debating
whether to apply a military field manual to
non-military intelligence activities.
It would be far better, I believe, for the
Administration to state forthrightly what
is clear in current law that anyone who
engages in waterboarding, on behalf of any
U.S. government agency, puts himself at risk
of criminal prosecution and civil liability."
Congress was attempting to apply the
army handbook regarding prisoners to the
CIA. McCain points out that waterboarding
is already illegal under current law.
Instead of spending time applying new
rules on top of the old, McCain sought to
change the root of the problem: the Bush
administration's stance. The administration
is already ignoring current laws, passing
another was pointless. Instead of partaking
in a media-pleasing spectacle he applied
reasoning and common sense.
Imagine that.

UF dancers to appear on BET


* TWO UF GROUPS COLLABORATED FOR
'SPRING BLING' DANCE COMPETITION.

By ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Contributing Writer
Two UF dance troupes will share the spotlight on
the small screen tonight competing on a BET dance
show.
Four men from the all-male Apocalypse Dance
Troupe and four women from the all-female Urban
Essence dance group joined forces two weeks ago
and competed March 28 in BET's "Spring Bling"
dance competition "Revamped" in West Palm
Beach, Fla. The show airs tonight at 8:30.
The groups decided to work together to form
"Ultimate Alliance," said Barry Naylor, former
president of Apocalypse Dance Troupe.
"We wanted to go down there and just try to let it
be known that there's a dance troupe at UF that can
actually dance," Naylor said.
Tarnessa Gaines, captain of Urban Essence, said
the group practiced four to five hours every day for
two weeks in preparation for the competition.
Ultimate Alliance was one of 20 groups invited
to audition and was chosen by MTV's "Making the
Band" choreographer Laurie Ann Gibson to be one
of the two groups competing on the show the next
day, Gaines said.


A challenge lay ahead for the dancers Gibson
assigned them a new song, Flo Rida's "Low," to
which they had to create a new routine to perform
at the competition. Steven Duncan, president of
Apocalypse Dance Troupe, said working together
was a challenge of suppressing competitive spirits,
but the demand for co-ed dance troupes and drive to
win fueled the groups toward working hard.
"We wanted to go down there and just
try to let it be known that there's a
dance troupe at UF that can actually
dance."
Barry Naylor
former president of Apocalypse Dance Troupe

Duncan said Ultimate Alliance was to represent
UF and to show that students can also be a part of a
serious dance group.
"It's about time something like this happened,"
he said. "It'll be nice to get some recognition."
Though both groups are getting ready for
another competition and possibly competing on
MTV's "America's Best Dance Crew," both Gaines
and Duncan said their respective groups are excited
to watch the show.
"It's BET," 'Gaines said. "It doesn't get any bigger
than that."

SIn November, Machen responded to a few of
the protesters in a letter, writing that he could not
endorse the group's suggestions because he be-
lieves in the trustees' current policies.
Richard Gutierrez, one of the protesters, said
Machen's response patronizes students who
worked to create the proposal, approved by more
than 80 percent of students as a referendum ques-
tion during spring Student Government elections.

Skeet Surrency, another protester, said when
students are left with no other options but to deny
their bodies of food, it leaves a poor comment on
the university and its leader. Surrency said his
fast, which will be limited to fruit and vegetable
juice, would last as long as UF's investments are
unknown.
"I've lost my taste for the crap that you've been
feeding us this year," he said, addressing the UF
administration.
Machen could not be reached for comment.
Gene Zdziarski, UF's dean of students, said he
appreciates the students' passion, but he is con-
cerned for their well-being. "I want our students to
be healthy," Zdziarski said.
UF spokesman Steve Orlando said claims that
UF's administration is not listening to the pro-
posal is unfair. He said UF couldn't release its
investment portfolio because it changes daily and
contains trade secrets that would make UF lose its
competitive edge.

he said.

SFCC student changing bike community


JENNA LANIA AVENUE WRITER
Ani Previc, 21, stands 4 feet 10
inches tall, but has not let her size or
age stop her from seeing her goals
to fruition.
Previc, an SFCC student, has
changed the face of Gainesville's
bike community by being a
key founder of the Gainesville
Community Bicycling Project, also
known as The Kickstand.
The Kickstand is a free bicycle-


repair shop, which offers free bike
maintenance to the Gainesville
community.
The warehouse, located on 722 S.
Main St., is split into three sections:
The Kickstand Thrift Shop, which
opened two weeks ago and is used
to earn money for rent, a stage for
live music performances and the
bicycle repair shop itself.
The process of getting the
shop started was not a quick one
though.


Previc first learned how to repair
her own bike in a friend's garage
only two years ago, but after that

she was hooked.
Along with a few friends, she
started her quest to begin a work-


ing bicycle collective in Gainesville
that would offer free bike repair to
everyone.
The small group began working
on the street corer of Northwest
Third Street, while Previc looked
for a more permanent and profes-
sional working space.
It took Previc and her friends
two years to find the space inside
the HF Stereo shop, and all the
while, she had to keep people inter-
ested in the movement.
"I would call people and be like,
'Hey do you want to come volun-
teer on Third Street?' or 'Do you


want to come to a volunteer meet-
ing?' and everyone was like, 'Oh, I
just don't see where this is going,'"
she said. "I refused to give up and
this is going to happen because I've
seen it happen other places and I've
seen it transform communities in
other cities."
When The Kickstand moved to
Main Street in December, the space
was used primarily as a music
venue to raise money for the shop
with a suggested admission dona-
tion of $5.

And while it can be, the truth is that
people rarey engage in the hookup with

As preachy as that statement seems, it's

album review

Britain's Estelle glimmers on sophomore long player


ADRIAN RUHI AVENUE WRITER

You have probably never heard of Estelle,
but you will shortly.
The British singer and rapper, who is
signed to John Legend's Homeschool Records,
blends neo soul, hip-hop and dance music
sensibilities without sacrificing her cultural
roots on her sophomore album, "Shine."
Instead of pandering to the increasingly
dumbed-down American hip-hop archetype,


Estelle brings a refreshing take to the genre, British vernacular, using the words "bloke,"
with a distinctly British accent and col- "wags" and "rubbish" for the first
loquialism. time in one of his verses.

Estelle doesn't need superstar assistance on

She's equally comfortable on poppy dance

All of the songs show her solid songwriting

Combined with top-notch production,
Estelle is the best UK import to hit American

'Walk It Off'


never finds


its legs

ROBERT HILSON AVENUE WRITER
Blame it on the blogs. Blame it on the
fickle keyboard elitists who promised us
that Tapes 'n Tapes was the second coming
of Pavement, the perfectly refined seed of
Frank Black and Kim Deal, the revolution
that would reclaim the Minneapolis post-
punk high ground long abandoned by the
Replacements.
They lied, and now they know it.
If Tapes' debut, "The Loon," merely
suspended the flow of MySpace-induced
propaganda, then "Walk It Off' threatens
to bury this band under a pile of message
board fodder and neglected bandwidth.
"Anvil," "Say Back Something" and
"Time of Songs" shoot a needle through
the expectations bubble
with a big dose of
'VmSfawl hipster-by-numbers
I .\ 3.'..; shoegaze laziness.
S. "Conquest" reproduces
S, ~ k "Doolittle" guitar
chime, but lacks the
Tapes 'n Tapes Pixies' jittery electricity.
"Walk It Off" While these songs
might not reach main-
stream FM, they're bound to get some love
from Starbucks radio. Low-key, tuneful
and devoid of any semblance of atten-
tion-grabbing ability, half of "Walk" crawls
along with the same looped white-noise
resonance that contemplative latte enthusi-
asts impassively soak up for hours-on end.
Elsewhere, the band's self-conscious
drum 'n' bass showmanship on opener "Le
Ruse" and particularly "Hang Them All"
portends a coming era in which indie's Joy
Division fetish collectively lulls the music
community into a rhythm-induced coma.
Some groups possess the melodic pedi-
gree to thrive on bass lines and choppy
percussion, but Tapes isn't one of them.
Maybe the propulsive onslaught of
the eighth track benefits from the build-
ing lethargy that precedes it. Or maybe
"Blunt" is just a really great song. Tight and
explosive, its the kind of three minutes that
made these guys such Pitchfork darlings in
the first place. Best case scenario, though,
it's a time-buying stop gap. Worst case, it's
a last grasp at relevance.
In the end, Web hype resembles the
data on a crashed hard drive, so "Walk It
Off" sounds like the kind of momentum-
squashing effort that could forever banish
Tapes 'n Tapes into the cyberspace ether, or
worse, back to Minnesota.


Dyes and prints a fresh look for summer


VANESSA DiMAGGIO *
AVENUE WRITER
This summer's fashion is all about mix-
ing it up. It's about making a splash with
bold colors and prints, as well as experi-
menting with ethnic-inspired pieces.
This summer is when you should leave
the grays, blacks and neutrals that invade
your closet space behind.
Instead, reach for that burst of color or
that bold graphic. A major oncoming trend
for the summer is the use of unusual, bold
geometric prints and patterns.
For ideas, think fashion maven Missoni's
colorful printed dresses, tops and skirts.
From ombre to floral to ethnic, un-
usual prints will be taking center stage over
shapes and styles this summer.
Ombre dyes, or dip-dyes, are cute and
eye-catching designs for dresses and shirts.


Basically, it's like a chic version of tie-dye, in
that multiple colors fade seamlessly from
one layer to the next.
Try an ombre dress in black and pink
dyes for a funky look or a flowing tank
top in maroon and beige shades for a more
earthy feel.
Floral patterns are also making an im-
pression on fabrics this summer. My favorite
color combo is the black, yellow and white
floral dresses that celebrities like Jennifer
Garner and Drew Barrymore have been
wearing lately. The contrast of bright yellow
flowers against a black dress is elegant and
unexpected.
In the ethnic category there's everything
from water-color style prints to Native
American-inspired pieces.
One interesting ethnic print to look for
this season is ikatt." Its a traditional Thai
print made by tightly tying areas of thread


before dipping them in a dye pot to create
a pattern. Modem Thai ikats are brightly
colored and usually in cotton or silk.
An ikat dress is a really different, cool
piece to wear out to a party or just around
campus.
A basic tenet to keep in mind when
wearing this season's vivid prints is to keep
everything else about your outfit low key.
A minimalist approach to shoes and acces-
sories works best.
Keep the focus of your outfit on the
print by taking one dominant color from it
and matching your shoes and accessories
to that.
Your accessories should complement the
fabric, not distract from it.
Go ahead and brave the unexpected.
Experiment with these interesting, colorful
patterns, and you'll be sure to turn heads
this summer.


Shop hopes to involve more families and children


BIKE, from page 11


But Previc said the focus is
finally moving from live shows
back to bicycles.
Now, the shop is open for
repairs four days a week with
different volunteers working
every day. The most common
repair is flat tires, she said.
There are about 20 to 30 core
volunteers who attend meet-
ings regularly, she said, but the
store's hours depend on if vol-
unteers actually show up.
It's not all about service
W~g^ SB^


though. There are teaching
sessions as well. Brian Erickson
teaches basic and advanced
bicycle repair and Previc hopes
to lead a workshop for women
and transgenders, she said.
For anyone interested in
voicing their opinions and sug-
gestion for the shop, weekly
meetings are held at 7 p.m. on
Thursday and repair work-
shops are every other week.
Previc identifies herself as
more of a social leader at The
Kickstand while Vyki Englert is
more the tasks leader, keeping
the topics on point and follow-


ing the agenda.
"For me it's important to
mediate during the meeting,
to make sure everyone has a
fair amount of time to spend,
that their voice is heard," Previc
said. "I think because of that ev-
eryone feels included and that
is something that's really im-
portant to me that everyone
feels included in the group."
She said although she is the
director and a key founder of
The Kickstand, no one person
holds all of the power and it is a
collective because everyone has
a voice.

Nicole Safker / Alligator Staff
Ani Previc poses with her bike, Serendipity, at The Kickstand Tuesday afternoon.


"Leadership is a very fluid
thing and it's whoever wants to
take responsibility for a certain
position," she said. "I think it
works best that way because
no one feels as though they are
being forced to do anything or
that they are working under
anyone else."
She said a -community is
built when everyone feels
included, adding that making
everyone feel useful is a skill
she can take wherever the fu-
ture takes her.
The Kickstand has existed
solely by word of mouth thus
far, but she said volunteers are
currently working on distrib-
uting pamphlets throughout
different neighborhoods in
Gainesville with the hopes of
inviting more families with
children. -
"We want to make them feel
as if they can send their kids to
us after school," she said. "Or
they feel comfortable coming to
our shop and they know when
we are open, and they don't feel
excluded from anything."
Previc said she feels solid
about where The Kickstand is
today and she is happy it has
finally taken off.
She said the shop is still a
work in progress and needs
more organization and better
volunteer coordination, but it
has come a long way.
"I feel like the people I am
working with now have a good
idea of how to run a bike shop
and it will be around for a long
time after I am gone."

Anti-academia finds outlets in television, music


I'm tired.
I'm tired of snooty literature discussions,
of modem art, of dissection of simplicity, of
professors masturbating their egos with the
knowledge they spent large portions of their
lives learning.
I'm tired of academia.
And why not? I've been living in an aca-
demia-dominated world for almost my entire
life and I'm positive I'm not alone.
I've never known a life of real work or prob-
lems. Think about it. What's the last thing you
worried or complained about?
"Ugh, this class is ruining my life!" or "F***,
I have to get up early tomorrow."
I'm not saying I am not grateful to have
such petty problems or that I'm going to start
watching the Blue Collar Comedy tour, but, at
this point in my life, coming down off the high
horse from the stables of the ivory towgr feels
way more real.
But I don't even do that. I just experience
that lifestyle from different media and then I
write columns dissecting it.
O Irony, you win again!
Anyway, "King of the Hill" is one of my
favorite programs on television.
"Man, that show is boring," a lot of people
tell me. But they don't get it. If they think it's


boring, they think real life is boring, because
that's what it is. It's a show about Hank Hill -
a high-school graduate who works at propane
store in a small town in Texas and then drinks
beers with his buddies in a back alley.
That's it and it's real.
Take, for instance, this Sunday's new
episode in which Hank and his cohorts pass
a locally renowned housing inspector in a
store. The inspector is treated like a celebrity,
eventually bringing one of the men to com-
ment on the strangeness that the inspector is
actually a mortal being of flesh and blood. To
reiterate, they're praising a "god-like" housing
inspector.
But the show isn't oblivious to what it is do-
ing. There are quite a few clear jabs at academia
and the people who are wrapped up in it.
Professors, students, artists and many other
pseudo-elitist intellectuals are portrayed with
a very realistic arrogance and pretentiousness
that is not seen many other places on TV.
One other show that does pick up on
rampant academic elitism though, is "The
Simpsons."
Many shows in the long series of
"Simpsons" seasons have been based around
the college experience and almost all of them
have that one professor who's just an all-


around cerebral douchebag.
For example, this Sunday's episode, the
"'90s episode," found Marge Simpson in the
'90s going to college, where one such professor
takes her fancy.
Among other pretentious things, his worse
offenses are pretending to like whale songs
instead of regular music and garishly calling
attention to all of the things he knows or has
read.
Admittedly, "The Simpsons" portrayal of
these kinds of situations and people are more
heavy-handed than "King of the Hill," but
both get their messages across.
TV doesn't have a stranglehold on anti-aca-
demia sentiments though.
There's plenty of music out there too.
Now, maybe "anti-academia" is not the best
choice of words to describe music, since there
are few songs that are as blatant about the topic
as those shows.
No, music doesn't try to be for or against
academia there's just a feeling. It's a feeling
of realness that is indescribable until heard.
For me, the realest band I've heard in a long
while is Creedence Clearwater Revival.
First of all, John Fogerty's voice is so utterly
raw and sincere in everything he sings that
you have no choice but to truly believe him.


You believe the
first-hand stories about
salt-of-the-earth, hand-
to-mouth, working-
class people, from poor
towns of the South.
To top it all off, the
music is muscular and simple. There are no
frills. No bridges, no crazy tempo or key shifts
and barely any drum fills.
"Born on the Bayou," "Green River,"
"Proud Mary" and so many other songs make
me want to give up all I know now for the kind
of simplicity only living in the wild can bring.
The mixture of academic-ennui with these
kind of media influences have left, saying
lately, "Man, I just want to do some real work
with my hands. I need to chop some wood or
something."
But the truth is if I really wanted, that
change, I definitely have the resources to make
it happen.
It's not going to.
So what does that make me, or anyone
in the same situation? A coset-academic? A
hypocrite? A phony? I honestly don't know.
Sup, existential crisis.
Whatever. I'll just take comfort in knowing
Fogerty is actually from San Francisco.

Rainey turns corner


in spring practice


* URBAN MEYER TABS THE
FRESHMAN AS ONE OF UF'S
MOST IMPROVED PLAYERS.

By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

For a person known for his fast
starts, Chris Rainey had a pretty
slow first year at UF.
He tallied one carry, one punt
return, a fumble and shoulder
surgery in his first season for the
Gators, a disappointing follow-up
to a high school career that yielded
three state titles and plenty of high-
lights.
He had trouble learning the
offense and showing up on time
and was criticized for being too
small to play running back in the
Southeastern Conference.
When he fumbled against Troy,
it put him on UF football coach
Urban Meyer's naughty list and
made his chances of seeing the field
even slimmer.


"When I fumbled, (Meyer)
was just so mad," Rainey said.
"Forever."
Skip ahead a few months, and
Meyer describes Rainey as one of
the team's most improved players,
adding that he's destined for play-
ing time in the fall as a running
back.
The credit for the turnaround
should probably be sent to an
unlikely place: Knoxville, Tenn.,
where former running backs coach
Stan Drayton is now employed
with Tennessee.
In October, Drayton confronted
Rainey in his dorm about being late
to meetings, and he made the fresh-
man come to his office every morn-
ing at 6:30 to study the playbook
and learn some discipline.
"(Drayton) knew I could do
better, and he wanted me to learn
the offense because I had some
little problems with it," Rainey
said. "I hate those morning things.
It helped me get up early, which

Gymnastics team full of energy


, oakim Noah lives.
Nope, sorry, the ponytail flop-
ping, air-guitar playing big man
n't back in Gainesville.
It's just that his 6-foot-ll, 232-pound
framed spirit has been shrink wrapped
and compressed into 4-foot-10-and-a-
half Amanda Castillo and 4-foot-1l-
and-a-half Melanie Sinclair.
The equation breaks down as fol-

Clutch throw clinches win


By EVAN DREXLER

McKethan Stadium was silenced as
North Florida's Andy Warren hit what
looked to be a game-tying sacrifice fly in
the eighth inning.
Jonathan Pigott would have none of it.
After making the routine catch, Pigott
reared back and threw the ball to Teddy
Foster at home plate with the precision of
an Olympic archer.
He nailed it. Dead center.
"God blessed me with a pretty good
arm," Pigott said.
Foster twisted his body, tagged Preston
Hale at the plate and preserved the Gators'
slim 3-2 lead.
"It was a perfect throw," Foster said.
"I didn't have to move. I caught it, turned,
and he was right there.
"I just had to make sure I held on to the
ball, and it was pretty easy when they put
it right to you."
In a game where every run counted, it


was the run that didn't score that allowed
UF to come out on top.
"In retrospect, that's as big as you get,"
Foster said. "When the out was made, it
was a huge momentum swing. Granted,
that was late in the game. Momentum
comes to our side."
"God blessed me with a pretty
good arm."

The Gators (23-10, 8-4 Southeastern
Conference) took the second game in as
many days from the Ospreys (18-15, 9-9
Atlantic Sun Conference), holding on for a
3-2 victory Wednesday night.
The Gators scored their second and
third runs in the second inning on a single
from first baseman Clayton Pisani and a
sacrifice fly from Avery Barnes.
But the Gators' offense was anything
but spectacular. The 3-4-5 hitters Cole

No. 4 UF sweeps Stetson for second time this year


* THE MATCH WAS ADDED
TO REPLACE CANCELED
CONTESTS.

By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

The UF women's tennis team
finished its non-conference season
Wednesday against the same team
that kicked off its schedule, and it
did so in similar fashion.
About the only difference from
the first meeting was that this
match was away from the friendly
confines of Linder Stadium.
The No. 4 Gators (17-1, 10-0
Southeastern Conference) swept
Stetson once again, this time 6-0,


in a match that UF was able to
schedule after some of its matches
early in the season were canceled
or postponed due to inclement
weather.
"We really needed to play an-
other match, I think, at a few spots,
and we got that done," UF coach
Roland Thornqvist said. "There's a
couple of our players, I think, who
really benefit from playing a lot of
points and a lot of matches.
"We certainly got that done
today."
UF was dominant in doubles,
surrendering just four total games
and sweeping all three courts from
the Hatters.
Sophomore Megan Alexander
and senior Lolita Frangulyan


teamed up for an 8-1 victory.
Senior Whitney Benik and
sophomore Csilla Borsanyi won
8-2, and the No. 39 duo of fresh-
Than Julia Cohen and sophomore
Anastasia Revzina scored an 8-1
rout.
UF didn't have much trouble
showing its depth
on the singles
courts either. The
Gators now have
Tennis five singles play-
ers ranked in the
Intercollegiate Tennis Association
top 125.
Five players posted straight-set
wins, similar to the teams' first
meeting on Jan. 23.
The No. 1 singles match, featur-


ing Cohen, did not finish play.
Benik performed a shutout
within a shutout, winning 6-0, 6-0
to capture her 14th straight singles
win this season.
Meanwhile, Frangulyan wbn
her 17th straight singles match in
a 6-1, 6-2 victory.
"Playing a match is cer-
tainly different than practice,"
Thornqvist said. "We got a rela-
tively easy match in, but still it was
a good one for us at this point in
the season,
"For a couple of our players, I
think it is crucial to continue doing
some things in match situations
that we've been practicing or talk-
ing about. It was just another op-
portunity to play."


The Gators, who won their 13th
consecutive dual match, will now
attempt to finish their SEC regu-
lar-season schedule unblemished
when they travel to No. 32 South
Carolina on Saturday.
UF defeated the Gamecocks 4-1
in Gainesville last season.
"Anytime you can go unde-
feated in a league, certainly that's
a tremendous accomplishment,"
Thomqvist said. "I don't know
that there are that many teams that
have done that in the years past.
"It doesn't happen that often
because this is, after all, one of the
most competitive leagues in the
country. "If we were able to do it,
it certainly speaks a lot about this
team."

Harvin in pain after undergoing heel surgery Monday


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

Percy Harvin may make defensive co-
ordinators wince with his quick speed and
darting cuts, but it is Harvin who is in plenty
of pain after undergoing surgery on his right
heel Monday night.
"They actually took bone out of his heel,"
UF coach Urban Meyer said after practice
Wednesday. "Then they drilled holes in his


heel."
Meyer said he talked to Harvin on
Wednesday morning and planned to visit
him after leaving practice.
The wide receiver is still expected to make
a full recovery by the fall and should be at 100
percent by July or August.

INJURY UPDATE: Senior tight end Cornelius
Ingram and junior college transfer Carl
Moore are both suffering from ankle sprains.


Both were at practice Wednesday, but Ingram
was on crutches and Moore
was in a boot.

ETC: Phil Trautwein, Jim
Tartt, Louis Murphy,
Kestahn Moore and
Ingram will all see limited
or no action in Saturday's
Harvin Orange and Blue game,
Meyer said Wednesday.... The offense finally


came out victorious in a practice scrimmage
Wednesday. On the last possession, Tim
Tebow led a drive that resulted in a short field
goal that gave the offense the win. ... Former
defensive end standout Jack Youngblood ad-
dressed the team after practice. Youngblood
played for the Gators in 1968-70 before going
on to star for the Los Angeles Rams from
1971-84 and was inducted in the initial four-
person class for the Ring of Honor in Ben Hill
Griffin Stadium in 2006.

Gators pitching recovers from recent struggles


Freshman RB

was good because I wasn't used to it. I'm
ready now."
When Drayton left for the Volunteers,
Kenny Carter took his place and picked up
right where his predecessor left off with
Rainey. Carter said he researched the Gators
before taking the job and that Rainey was one
of the players he most desired to coach.
Carter employed the same tactic as
Drayton, conducting wake-up calls and check-
ing in on his player in much the same way.
Just as he has for most of the spring, Rainey
seemed to turn another comer a few days ago
after Carter called to make sure he would be
on time for an early-morning workout.

"I had to work really hard to get
back out there. They're going to
see some stuff like they saw in
high school. That's all I can say."
Chris Rainey
UF freshman running back

"The next day we had early meetings, and
at 6:30 my phone rings and (Rainey) says,
'Good morning, sunshine,'" Carter said. "I see
the development in him."
The development has carried over to the
field, where Rainey is getting more touches
and regaining the swagger he had in high
school. He routinely breaks off 60-yard touch-
down runs in practice, occasionally beats re-
ceiver Percy Harvin in races and has added 30
pounds to his now-5-foot-9,177-pound frame.
"He's more than just a speed guy now,"
Carter said. "He can run inside and do the
things that you want a back to do. Chris
Rainey is a ballplayer. He's a guy that can be a
difference-maker, and any time he touches the
ball he can go the distance."
After dazzling the coaches and eluding
tacklers all spring, Rainey is ready for his
coming-out party this Saturday, when a larger
audience will watch him play in the Orange
and Blue Debut.
"I had to work really hard to get back out
there," Rainey said. "They're going to see
some stuff like they saw in high school. That's
all I can say."

Figueroa, Josh Adams and Matt den
Dekker were a combined 0 for 11

Pigott's 0-for-2 night with two walks


and you have a team that was lucky to
score three runs.

our hitters tonight," UF coach Kevin
O'Sullivan said. "We've got some work
to do offensively. ... Adams and Cole

has," Corey Hartung said of the energy. "We always notice
that. Everybody else is jealous and everybody else wants
(what we have). We don't want to be boring or lame.
S"Ashley Reed was telling me one time her freshman year
there was half as many people in the audience as now."
Before practice Wednesday, Faehn told her team about a
time in her college career when her coach wasn't seeing her
energy up to its normal level, so her coach sent her to the con-
cession stand for a cupcake.
When asked if she would ever consider doing that to one
of her girls, she laughed and said it would send them on too
much of a sugar high.
That's true for most people, but I doubt Faehn can find
a way to calm down Castillo or Sinclair. I'm guessing their
elementary school teachers failed miserably at keeping those
two from running around.
While Faehn was doing her team announcements, Sinclair
let out a "WOOHOO" after an apparently exciting announce-
ment.
"It's just my personality," Castillo said. "I'm extremely ex-
troverted. I don't care who's watching. Sometimes I feel when
I'm down, the team is down. My position here is being loud
and having fun."
They even have groupies.
Seriously.
There are Facebook pictures to prove it.
There is a picture of Hartung with her fan base holding a


of these other guys are going to have to
step up.
UF totaled six hits all singles in
the game.
UF starter Stephen Locke wentuhree
strong innings, allowing only four hits
and one run. After the first inning, he
settled down and retired five of the six
batters he faced, the sixth going down
on a pick-off.
Travis Lawler (2-0) came in to relieve
him in the fourth and had a very suc-
cessful 3 2/3 innings. He downed three
Ospreys on strikeouts and gave up only
three hits.
For a team with bullpen issues in the
last few weeks, the excellent relief work
from Lawler, Tony Davis and Clint
Franklin helped boost morale.
"You can't have great stuff every
outing," Lawler said. "We've just got to
help each other out when we fall, pick
each other up."
Though UF won both mid-week
games against UNF, it was not nearly
that easy. The Ospreys actually outhit
the Gators 22-21 in the series.
"North Florida's not going to be
ranked No. 1 in the country any time
soon, but they're a hell of a team,"
Foster said.


sign that says "Corey 'Hammer-Time' Hartung" and that
picture was taken on the road.
No, I don't know what it means, but it doesn't matter.
The point is that this program and team have become so
popular that they have fans that travel on the road, paint their
faces and make signs.
"Last year when people started making signs, I didn't
come in thinking that (would happen)," Castillo said. "People
see that I love doing what I love, so it draws attention. It's
something new and different."
Sinclair says she laughs 20 times a day. So let's break this
down.
That's 21,900 laughs, giggles or potential snorts that have
come from UF's captain in her three years in Gainesville.
That's 7,300 a year, 140 per week and almost one an hour. Tim
Tebow doesn't get autograph requests that often. Throughout
a 4-minute interview, Sinclair even burst out laughing with
Castillo on a few occasions.
Apparently, it's all about the vitamins.
"I take my vitamins," said Sinclair, once again holding
back a laugh. "Vitamins help.
."I'm a loud, fun person that loves to be energetic, sarcastic.
If everyone was dead (it wouldn't be as fun)."
Added Faehn, "Who wants to be around people that are
stuck in the mud and have no personality? Everybody wants
(energy)."
I suggest you take a lesson from these women. Their at-
titudes might make them national champions. It might make
you a happier person. As for me? I'll let you know once I find
a place to park.
