Hunger strikers feeling effects of protest


* TWO SDS MEMBERS SAID THEY
HAVE FAINTED DURING STRIKE.

By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

Six of 11 student protesters are still fast-
ing until they can talk about UF's investment
policy with UF President Bernie Machen, but


they're dropping fast. Two have already faint-
ed after nearly a week, protesters said.
Members of Students for a Democratic
Society have been on a hunger strike since
April 9. Students met with Dean of Students
Eugene Zdziarski on Wednesday asking for
a forum to discuss releasing details of the
university's $1.2 billion endowment.
" The group wants to make sure UF isn't in-
vesting in anything socially irresponsible.


Dianna Morgan, chairwoman of the Board
of Trustees, sent the group a letter this week
telling them not to put their health at risk for
the administration's atten-
Student tion because UF is already
GO3Vernment aware of the group's re-
quests, UF spokeswoman
Janine Sikes said. There are no current plans
for meetings between Machen and SDS,
who have met three times before, Sikes said.


Machen could not be reached for comment.
Student Body President Ryan Moseley said
he met with the group on Tuesday and was
still reviewing the proposals before taking a
stance.
Richard Gutierrez, an English and his-
tory senior and SDS member, said he told
friends and family that his part in the strike
would end when he passed out. That day was

Einstein's pulls class's notes

Einstein's Notes has tempo-
rarily stopped selling notes for
a UF class after Faulkner Press,
the software company used to
supplement the course, sued
the note-taking service.
However, Jim Sullivan, the
Gainesville lawyer represent-

dents shouldn't worry about
studying for their final exams
in Wildlife Issues in a Changing
World because the company
will post audio files of the lec-

Faulkner Press' online lec-

Michael Moulton's class, usu-

Sullivan.
Faulkner Press filed the


lawsuit against Class Notes, the
parent company of Einstein's
Notes, on April 1. The suit al-
leges that Einstein's Notes sold
Moulton's lecture notes with-
out his permission.
Einstein's Notes has until
the end of the month to for-

In the meantime, Thomas Bean,
the company's owner, said he
decided to temporarily stop
publishing Moulton's notes
because he didn't want to "fuel

Senate allots $1M for groups


Student org. budget $16K less


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

UF student senators approved more than $1
million for academic councils and student orga-
nizations to use over the 2008-2009 school year
during Tuesday's Senate meeting that lasted
until midnight.
The senators' decision, which was not made
until after press time Tuesday, designates almost
$540,000 to the Board of College Councils, the
body that oversees funds for academic groups
in each college, and almost $585,000 to Student
Government-funded student organizations.
The Board of College Council budget
changed little since last year, increasing by about
$100. However, the student-organization budget
is almost $16,000 less than last year's budget of
$600,559, said Sen. Jordan Johnson, chairman of


the Budget andAppropriations Committee, in a
telephone interview Wednesday.
Johnson said the committee decreased funds
for the upcoming year because some groups
weren't spending all the
money they requested.
The funding slash was
meant to "cut out some of the
fat" that could be used some-
St where else, he said.
"If they weren't spending
their money last year, we
didn't give them everything
Johnson they asked for this year,"
Johnson said.
Most groups were not given more funding
than last year, but six groups demonstrating
greater participation and financial need were

STATE

House passes bill targeting textbook affordability


By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org

The Florida House of Representatives
voted unanimously in favor of a bill
Wednesday that aims to make buying text-
books more affordable. The bill, introduced
by Rep. Anitere Flores, R-Miami, would
require state colleges and universities to
provide adequate textbook information to
students at least 30 days before the first day
of classes.
They would have to provide either the
ISBN number or other identifying infor-
mation, including the book's author, title,


edition, publisher, published date and copy-
right date, at the minimum.
If passed by the Senate and approved by
Gov. Charlie Crist, the proposal would give
students time to shop around for the cheap-
est textbooks available rather than having to
rush to buy them in time for class.
Flores said she wasn't surprised the
House voted 115-0 in favor of the bill.
In a phone interview Wednesday, she de-
scribed her initial reaction to the news of the
bill's passage as "incredible satisfaction."
"This is a step in trying to help students
make their college career a little more afford-
able," she said. "It took three years to get this


great bill passed, and it was worth it."
Flores began combating the textbook
affordability problem in 2005 with a pro-
posal to exempt textbooks
from sales tax, but her bill
didn't make it onto the
Legislature's agenda in
2006 or 2007.
Audie Rowell, presi-
dent and co-founder of
XBooks, a nonprofit, on-
Flores line bookstore that allows
students to buy and sell
books among themselves, helped Flores
draft a bill that would more specifically ad-


dress the issue.
Rowell said he was ecstatic about the
bill's passage through the House.
"This is historic for students," he said.
"That's the only way I can describe it."
Considering the financial strains of recent
tuition hikes, Rowell, a 40-year-old return-
ing Florida State University student, said the
bill would offer students some relief.
"Students will now be provided the
information they have been denied for so
many years," he said.
The proposal will go before the Florida
Senate today. If it passes, it must also be ap-
proved by Crist before going into effect.


Student Senate votes against restructuring Cabinet


* SENATE PRESIDENT CITES
INADEQUATE RESEARCH.

By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

UF student senators voted
against a bill Tuesday night that
would have reduced the number
of Student Body Cabinet positions
by 30 members.
The current model, which al-
lows 36 Cabinet directors and
secretaries to govern areas such
as Greek affairs, technology and


housing, is inefficient, said Sen.
Mark McShera, the bill's spon-
sor, in a telephone interview
Wednesday.
The Tuesday meeting lasted
four hours and was not over by
press time.
McShera's bill aimed to stream-
line the Cabinet by cutting the
number of members to just six sec-
retaries, a move that would make
the roles of members more clear, he
said. He said he was not surprised
by the disapproving vote, but he
intends to revise the bill to appease
dissenters.
"I think it's just disappointing


because this was the fresh air that
the Cabinet needed to best serve
the Student Body," McShera said.
Senate President Kellie Dale
said in a telephone interview
that she voted
Student against the bill
Government because she
didn't think
enough research went into the pro-
posed shuffle.
She said she was disappointed
that Vanessa Goodwin, Student
Body vice president, and Yooni Yi,
incoming Student Body vice presi-
dent, were not consulted about
such a big change in Cabinet.


"I think the intentions were
good," Dale said. "But I don't
think it was the most effective way
to restructure Cabinet."
Senators also approved a rec-
ommendation for Eric Wolf, an
Orange and Blue Party senator,
to replace a seat on the Senate
Judiciary Committee. The commit-
tee seat was left vacant by former
Sen. Sheldon Nagesh, who re-
signed last week after controversy
over whether he could represent
his district.
Wolf could not be reached
for comment. His appointment
brings the number of Orange


and Blue Party senators on a
committee to two. The other is
Sen. Ben Cavataro, the Orange
and Blue Party leader who sits
on the Replacement and Agenda
Committee. Cavataro earned his
committee spot as the leader of the
Senate's minority party.
"We're still underrepresented,
but I'm not complaining because
at least we have him," Cavataro
said in a phone interview, refer-
ring to Wolf.
The senators also passed a reso-
lution to honor Carmen Peterson,
a UF student who was killed in a
bicycle accident last week.

Proposed development still mired in complications


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

After being turned down by
the city commission in October
2007, the developer of the pro-
posed Hatchet Creek community
in northeast Gainesville appealed
the decision at Wednesday night's
commission meeting.
The development, which
Commissioner Rick Bryant called
"Haile Plantation East," would
be primarily for residents 55 and
older and would contain com-
mercial areas, 1,199 homes and 300
assisted-living facility beds.
Project supporters hope it
would bring increased develop-
ment to East Gainesville.
In order for developers to build
at the proposed site, the city would


"I think not taking the time
for the study to be com-
pleted would be a great
mistake for the commission
to decide tonight."
Peter Johnson
airport authority member

have to make changes to its land-
use policy. Commissioners had not
decided by press time what condi-
tions, if any, to accept in changing
the proposed site's land use to al-
low, for construction.
Disagreement arose when the
developer asked commissioners to
change the land-use category for
200 more acres than the company
had previously requested, allow-
ing it to build on more land.


It also asked to be able to build
in airport-noise zones, which are
subject to 65 decibels of sound.
At press time, there were two
motions on the floor one re-
stricting homes to the original
300 acres instead of the requested
500 acres, and another prohibiting
them from being built in the noise
area.
The issue was further com-
plicated by the possibility that
in the fall the commission may
discuss changing its definition of
an airport-noise zone to include
lower decibel levels, which would
make it even more unlikely that
the developer would be able to
build there.
Members of the Gainesville
Regional Airport Authority an-
nounced at the meeting they had
also commissioned a study into
possible changes in airport-noise
zones.
"I think not taking the time for
the study to be completed would
be a great mistake for the commis-
sion to decide tonight," said Peter
Johnson of the airport authority.
The land-use change was
originally turned down because of
concerns over-the development's
proximity to the airport and the
possible destruction of wetlands.
Developers and city officials
agreed destroyed wetlands should
be replaced by man-made ones.
"In general, I don't think any of
us like to see wetlands destroyed,"
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan said.

Assault help goes online


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Instant messaging could be the newest
way for victims of sexual assault to find
anonymous help.
A new online sexual assault hotline
was officially released Monday by the
Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network,.
or RAINN, known for its national phone
hotline.
While the phone line is still available,
victims of sexual assault and their friends
and families can now also use an instant
messaging service to connect with trained
professionals.
Rita Lawrence, a victim advocate at
Alachua County Victims Services & Rape
Crisis Center, said her group has helped
staff a pilot version of the hotline for about
a year.
"People are definitely using it, and have
been," Lawrence said.
About half of all assault victims are
younger than 18, and 80 percent are
younger than 30, said Katherine Hull, a
spokeswoman for RAINN. In past years,
these victims have increasingly turned to
the Internet for help and information.
"People just prefer to communicate on-
line," Hull said. "Unfortunately, that type of
help is leaving them susceptible to unreli-
able advice."
Victims often depend on blogs and mes-
sage boards for information, she said.


At the Alachua County center, Lawrence
said, all hotline operators receive 30 hours
of standard crisis center training and spend
10 additional hours learning the system.
In addition to being more reliable, the
new hotline is also more anonymous than
most Web sites, Hull said. It doesn't record
transcripts or keep computers' IP addresses.
The hotline also includes information on
deleting a computer's history so other users
won't be able to see what sites were visited.
"People just prefer to communi-
cate online. Unfortunately, that
type of help is leaving them sus-
ceptible to unreliable advice."
Rita Lawrence
Alachua County Victims Services & Rape
Crisis Center victim advocate

"There is no evidence," Hull said. "There
is no history."
Lawrence said she has helped victims
work through a variety of different prob-
lems with the online hotline, including
what to do immediately following assault
and how to handle troubling flashbacks.
For some, typing is easier than talking,
she said.
"If I weren't sure I could speak without
breaking down, texting might be easier,"
she said.
The hotlines can be accessed at
www.rainn.org or 1-800-656-HOPE.

Strike Out

Hunger strike won't

advance SDS cause
oday marks the eighth day that the Students for a
Democratic Society have been on a hunger strike to,
convince UF President Bernie Machen that the univer-
sity should make its investment portfolio transparent.
In its latest quest for socially responsible investment, the
SDS has disintegrated any possibility of reasoned debate with
the administration on the issue for a number of reasons.
First, while we understand that an open review of where
our university places its billions is something more than 80
percent of students who voted in the spring election would
like to see, we can't possibly understand why the SDS would
choose to alienate the masses with their extreme tactics. The
majority of the student body cannot identify with a small sect
of students who choose not to nourish themselves especially
right before final exams. To the reasonable among us, it's just
absolutely ridiculous and woefully ineffective.
For those who remember the SDS protests of the past -
calling for the firing of the University Police officers involved
in the Taser debacle and then the short-lived "study-in" that
was supposed to encourage Machen to speak with them
- it's hard to view this latest attention scam as anything
other than a cheap stunt.
Hunger strikes have been historically significant, as
was the case when Mahatma Gandhi began such a strike
to protest the British rule of India. Political prisoners at
Guantinamo Bay have also used hunger strikes to protest
what some believed to be their unfair imprisonment.
With the knowledge of these monumental causes, the
SDS approach pales in comparison and cheapens the value
of what it means to be on a hunger strike. It is hard to sympa-
thize with the SDS strikers that have used the powerful tactic
to essentially throw a temper tantrum rather than initiate real
change.
It is also hard for us to take them seriously.
We're not buying that the SDS has no other choice but to
not eat, as one protester stated. In fact, they have chosen the
easy way out.
It is much harder to disrupt your schedule and adamantly
protest outside Tigert every-day, holding signs and garnering
support for your cause from students outside your immedi-
ate social circle. The "hunger strikers" are still going about
their daily lives, minus three meals a day. The institution
of a real change would require actively lobbying Student
Government to get behind the protests, or even continuing to
sit in Machen's office every day to remind him of the cause.
We're guessing this hunger strike is destined to go the way of
other SDS demonstrations: failure.
And so it seems to us that the real reason the SDS strikers
have chosen not to eat is to attract more attention to them-
selves rather than the issue at hand. Some have passed out
in class. Even the debate over whether drinking fruit juice
counts as a hunger strike has distracted from thepurpose of
the protest.
Their self-imposed fervor about the strike has diverted at-
tention away from the issue and has placed their own mem-
bers into the spotlight. If their goal is to highlight the need
for socially responsible investing, why have they chosen to
continuously discuss the strike instead of the reason for it?
This sort of look-at-me-I'm-not-eating attitude they have ad-
opted does nothing to advance their cause. The result? The
strike has been easily dismissed at least by us.

Letters to the Editor
SDS strike should be taken seriously
I've recently concluded that the problem
with this country can be summed up by the-
Alligator articles and editorials Students for
a Democratic Society has generated over the
last year. You may agree that the world as
we know it is falling apart, but you'll contin-
uously bicker over every last detail of those
whose conscience compels them to actually
take action.


Wednesday was the seventh day UF
students have been on hunger strike, and
Wednesday's paper was no different.
"You hippies hungry yet?" I'm asked.
We are aware of the seriousness of the
step we have taken and can only reiterate
the seriousness of the problem we are con-
fronting.
We are fast coming to terms with the
economic reality that a system that puts


profit before people and the environment
will do just that until it reaches its logical
conclusion, nicely summed up in the current
occupation of Iraq and the looming climate
crisis.
Obviously our generation desires lives of
modest comfort and stability, but this may
very well be out of our grasp if we continue
down the path we are on. Unfortunately,
it seems our university's very funding is


derived from the forces we so desperately
need to check.
Eighty-two. percent of voting students
feel that UF should do more to address this
problem. If we can't even hold our own uni-
versity accountable to the needs and desires
of our generation, how can we ever hope to
address the larger issues confronting us?

STATE

House race to pit upstart against 19-year incumbent


By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
dharwell@alligator.org
As the latest debate between Hillary
Clinton and Barack Obama dominates head-
lines across the country, one local race for the
November general elections is just beginning
to heat up.
Ocala resident Tim Cunha, a Democrat
and former attorney, recently announced his
intention to run against 19-year incumbent
SCliff Steams, a Republican, for the local U.S.
House of Representatives seat.
District 6 spanning upward from south
of Ocala, through Gainesville and up to the


Georgia border has long been represented
by Stears, 67, who has won the seat in the
last nine elections.
Yet Cunha, 57, said he hopes his back-
ground in law and his ideas for national
policies will send voters to the polls with him
in mind.
Since Steams was elected to the House, he
has backed mostly conservative ideals, and in
recent years has supported almost all of the
Bush administration's propositions.
According to The Washington Post's
Congress Votes Database, 90.8 percent of his
votes have followed the Republican majority.
But even though that track record may not
fit Alachua County, which voted in the 2006


election for Stears' Democratic opponent,
Dave Bruderly, a press officer for Stearns
said it's still too early for the congressman to
begin his campaign.
Paul Flusche, Steams'
spokesman, said the con-
P S- g gressman is focused on his
Sjob right now and has not
yet thought about cam-
paigning.
Even so, Steams has
steamrs already built up an envi-
able election fund. According to campaign
finance reports published by the Center for
Responsive Politics, a non-partisan research
group, he has about $2.3 million in cash on


hand the fifth most by a U.S. representa-
tive for this year's elections.
Yet Cunha said he thinks his views, which
he described as "representative of the great
middle majority of Americans," will trump
those of Stears' moneyed "ultra-conserva-
tive playbook."
The former attorney of 30 years and part-
time Rutgers professor said he has begun
campaigning full-time to voters of all lean-
ings,
"There's not some radical left-wing solu-
tion, and there's not some radical right-wing
solution," he said. "People aren't just voting
straight party lines anymore. They're think-
ing."


Edible Book Contest shows how sweet reading can be


* MORE THAN 20 BOOK-
THEMED CAKES DISPLAYED.

BY ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Contributing Writer
Giant hamburgers covered the
lawns of houses, spilling over roof-
tops and blocking streets.
But this was no ordinary town,
and these were no ordinary burgers.
They were made of sugar and
flour, and the scene was a repre-
sentation of Judi and Ron Barrett's
children's book, "Cloudy With a


Chance of Meatballs."
This year's Read-A-Thon week,
hosted by the UF libraries, held its
second annual Edible Book Contest
on Wednesday.
The cake contest was a hit last
year, and the libraries' staffs knew
they should do it again this year,
said Barbara Hood, spokeswoman
for the George A. Smathers Libraries
at UF Hood said more than 20 cakes
were entered in the contest.
The cakes were judged, and win-
ners were chosen from five different
categories.
Winners received a cookbook,


a blue ribbon and a gift certificate
for either Burrito Brothers or Wild
Iris Books.
"The texture of it it
doesn't even look like
cake."
Sabrlna Ahmed
UF sophomore

Sabrina Ahmed, a UF sopho-
more, said she initially attended the
event to support the "The Cat in the
Hat" cake her friend entered.


Ahmed said aside from her
friend's cake, she was most im-
pressed by the "Eragon" cake, which
was in the shape of a dragon's head
and designed after the dragon in the
Christopher Paolini fantasy novel.
"The texture of it it doesn't
even look like cake," she said. "I
don't think I could eat it. The spikes
are intimidating."
The "Eragon" cake won the
best fiction category. Its creator,
Melissa Genosa, 16, of Eastside
High School's Institute of Culinary
Arts, said she worked on it for a
week. She took a white cake with


buttercream frosting and covered it
in fondant, a sugary confection that
can be sculpted.
Other winners included a
"Powerpuff Girls" cake for best chil-
dren's book and a lettuce-shaped
carrot cake representing Beatrix
Potter's "The Tale of Peter Rabbit"
for most creative cake.
UF student Romain Artison said
that though he found the pastries
cool and original, they weren't
enough to inspire him to create a
concoction of his own.
"My cakes? They'rejust normal,"
Artison said.

Festival of India displays Hindu philosophies on Plaza


* EVENT WILL LAST
THROUGH FRIDAY.

By KATE KENNEDY
Alligator Contributing Writer

A giant fish in a lawn chair, a
snake charmer and a gypsy bird
lady are not typical Plaza of the
Americas lawn-dwellers.
The unusual characters were
props for the Festival of India,
which opened Wednesday and will
remain through Friday from 9 a.m.


to 5 p.m.
Five tents shelter informational
panels explaining philosophies of
the Bhagavad Gita, one of the cen-
tral scriptures of Hinduism. Each
tent addresses different topics such
as vegetarianism, reincarnation and
yoga with pictures and outside
sources.
"Our mission is to enlighten
people about the Vedic culture of
India, primarily about the science of
the Bhagavad Gita," said Madhuha
Dasa, who runs the traveling festi-
val. "We're not here to indoctrinate

people."
This year a new presentation
called "A Journey of the Soul"
was unveiled. Upon entering the
enclosed tent, the ching-ching of
Krishna music faded away and
sunlight was replaced with a dim
light bulbs warming the black in-


terior.
During the 10-minute show, a
man's voice described reincarna-
tion while a video of changing
seasons played on a screen behind
17 small mannequins, each depict-
ing the steps in a man's aging pro-
cess, transitioning from embryo to
a corpse.
Dasa said it was meant to ex-
plain the difference between the
body, which ages and dies, and the
soul, which lives on. The festival
has been visiting UF during its
cross-continental tour through the


U.S. and Canada for nearly a de-
cade, he said. College students are
receptive to the exhibits, especially
now that vegetarianism and yoga
are more popular.
But there were some skeptics.
"It's interesting, but I don't think
it's true," said sophomore Blake
Tanase of the belief in reincarnation.
Tanase stopped by the "Evolution
of Consciousness" exhibit during a
break in his classes.
"I eat Krishna lunch at least once
a week so I thought I should at least
see what it's about," he said.

Political writers visit UF


* TALK WILL FOCUS ON MEDIA'S
RELATIONSHIP WITH PRESIDENCY.
Two political journalists will discuss
the media's effect on the U.S. presi-
dency at UF's Graham Center for Public
Service in Pugh Hall at 7 p.m. as part of
the center's Presidential Lecture Series.
Matt Bai, a political writer for The
New York Times Magazine, and Joe
Trippi, a Democratic campaign worker
and author of "The Revolution Will Not
Be Televised: Democracy, the Internet
and-the-Overthrow of Everything," were
chosen by former U.S. Sen. Bob Graham
to participate in the series. Graham will
also attend the forum, which will be
moderated by Tom Fiedler, former ex-
ecutive editor of The Miami Herald.
Michael Bowen, assistant director of
the Graham Center, said Bai and Trippi
would compare old and new forms of


media and how they could impact the
upcoming presidency.
"These are two guys who are very
much in the front lines of both," Bowen
said.
Although Bai has his own news blog,
he represents traditional media as a
print journalist; Bowen said. Trippi, who
served as Howard Dean's
0 n presidential campaign
Campus manager in 2004, will rep-
resent new media at the
event, Bowen added.
He said the event would be a good
opportunity for people interested in pol-
itics or the media to ask questions and
get expert analysis that they wouldn't
normally have available to them in a
classroom.
"Trippi is an amazing political strate-
gist, and Bai is a very, very well-respect-
ed journalist," he said.

SDS wants meeting with Machen

Tuesday. Gutierrez said he fainted on his
bicyde while waiting at a stop sign.
"The next thing I can remember, some
guy got out of a car and asked if I was OK,"
he said. "The walk home was a blur."
Once he was home, he gave in for health's
sake and had a strawberry yogurt.
Changing UF's endowment policy to
be more transparent is something Machen
couldn't do alone, but his word would have
a big influence, Gutierrez said.
UF's Investment Corporation, a nonprofit
organization that handles UF's investments,
keeps its records private. SDS has demanded
a policy change as well as a student-and-
faculty committee appointed to advise the


Board of Trustees on socially responsible
investments.
SDS member Skeet Surrency, an organic
and sustainable agriculture junior, said
the group would -send
Machen a letter invit-
ing him to discuss the
issue over lunch Friday.
Surrency, who is only
drinking juice while on
strike, said he doesn't ex-
pect Machen to show, but
Machen the group would be in the
Reitz Union waiting.
"If he was really concerned about our
health, he would show up with an open
mind and perhaps with an apology for the
way things have been handled this past
year," Surrency said.

Morning after with Matt


Matt Pond PA discusses touring, music


ALLIE CONTI AVENUE WRITER
Matt Pond called me in a whis-
per aboard his tour bus Saturday
afternoon.
He had just woken up after a
late night of partying with his band-
mates and was now staring out the
window in between towns heading
toward Williams College.
This doesn't really deviate from
a typical day for Pond, who has
been on tour with Matt Pond PA for
almost two years. He's used to not
having his own place and having
staying with friends and fans.
His most recent tour, which
began April 14, passed through


Gainesville last night and will con-
tinue until May 9, will bring his
stripped-down, chamber-pop outfit
to small, intimate venues that trickle
down the East coast.
The band just played the
Langerado Music Festival to crowds
that surpassed ten thousand, but
Pond doesn't mind playing small
venues.
"We've played on a few unat-
tended tours and I really don't
want to sound like a hippie but
it's all about how much thg people
connect with the music," he said.
With eight records under his belt
and a slew of ex-band members,
it's hard to know who or what to


expect of a Matt Pond PA live per-
formance.
He isn't bringing his cellist or
violinist on this tour because he
doesn't want it to come off as gim-
micky, but sound will still sound
full, he said.
"i really don't want to sound like
a hippie, but it's all about how
much the people connect with
the music."
Matt Pond
Matt Pond PA leader
It's hard to describe the band
as gimmicky or niche-fitting when
they've toured with acts as diverse


as Liz Phair, Youth Group, Ted Leo,
Straylight Run and Guster.
The only staple of the band is
Pond himself, although he wants
people to realize that the band
doesn't only consist of him.
"The ones who stay around the
longest, their personalities and them
helping you write parts, they all be-
come your friends and then not your
friends," he said.
In the past, he has talked about
changing the name of his band from
its current moniker to "The Dark
Leaves" before releasing the follow-
up to "Last Light," which is already
in the works.
"Whether we do something our
not is delirious conjecture," Pond
said. "I like to make jokes, and
sometimes I'm serious, and some-


times I retract my jokes."
He suddenly became much more
verbose if not more comprehendible
when the conversation turned away
from himself and onto other acts.
"I absolutely love Be Your Own
Pet," Pond said.
He also chatted about Neutral
Milk Hotel, whose "In theAeroplane
Over the Sea", he received death
threats for covering.
"We didn't do it to make it better,
because we can't, but to honor it,"
he said
He said is was a strange reaction
to get threatening letters though.
"Kids send me covers of our

Florida acoustic pop group making national waves


MARGARET FRANCOIS AVENUE WRITER


It is not every day that you
walk into your first period class as
an aspiring musician and walk out
with a manager, but that is exactly
what happened for members of the
Florida pop group Mark & James.
Mark Russell and James
Friedman met their manager
when she was a guest speaker in
Russell's entertainment marketing
class at the University of Central
Florida, Russel said.
Following her speech, the two
gave her a copy of their CD and
about two weeks later, after play-
ing a game of cat and mouse, she
became their manager.
But this isn't the only odd
yet fortunate coincidence in the
group's career.
Russell and Friedman met at a
hurricane shelter in 2004 at UCF.
Friedman brought his guitar with
him "just to jam," he said.
Russell, who played the
acoustic guitar too, approached
Friedman and they shared an in-
stant bond, Friedman said.
"Every musician has the desire
to get together and play," he said.
Soon after meeting, Friedman
started opening for an acoustic
band Russell played in. Eventually
the two got together and Mark &
James emerged.
The band, which Friedman
describes as "two friends having
a good time," has a sound of pop,
rock and a touch of acoustic-soul


all held together with strong lyr-
ics and melodious lead vocals
contributed by both Friedman and
Russell.
"If you took John Mayer and
Ryan Cabrera and they had a kid
and he played in The Fray, that
would describe us," Friedman
said.
Since June 2007, they have
played with national acts such
as Matchbox Twenty and Alanis
Morissette, Aly & AJ and the Jonas
"We never expected to make it
this far. "Everything we get to do
has really been a blessing."
James Friedman
Mark & James guitarist

Brothers to name a few.
They will be opening for Avril
Lavigne in Tampa, Fla., on April
19 and in West Palm Beach, Fla.,
on April 20.
Music and touring aren't the
only things on the duo's minds.
Both Russell and Friedman are 22
year-old students at UCF who bal-
ance school and their careers.
"It's pretty tough," Friedman
said. "We play certain shows and
are out until the early morning. It's
not easy but we handle it pretty
well."
Either way, the reward of
performing in front of and pleas-
ing thousands of fans is worth it,
Russell said.
They recently won the NBC/


CW Best Central Florida Band
competition, but having other
people relate to their songs means
the most to them, Russell said.
In addition to other dates, they
are hosting the "Bandemonium
tour," which is a 16 date national
tour starting in Las Vegas on May
1.
"We're excited but pretty ner-
vous because we've never been on
tour," Russell said. "The thought
is awesome, but you never think
about what is behind the scenes
with it."
They are also the first act
added to the already-scheduled
Bandemonium 2 tour, which will
be an all pop/rock show launch-
ing in late summer 2008.
As though the summer isn't al-
ready busy enough, Mark & James
is releasing an acoustic album,
"Hello, I Love You & Goodbye,"
on June 10 at the Virgin Megastore
in Orlando.
Their first single is called
"Letting Go".
Both Friedman and Russell
write songs, and the inspiration be-
hind the first single was Russell's
breakup with his girlfriend of four
and a half years, he said.
"People love "Letting Go" be-
cause anybody can identify with
it," Russell said.
Although they are two "radi-
cally different" people, Friedman
said, they are two opposites that
attract.
"We are constantly contradict-


ing each other," but the chemistry
"really comes across" when per-
forming, he said.
With such looming success,
fame might get to one's head,
but the two have stayed well-
grounded.
Their experience perform-
ing as worship leaders in church
has helped them remain humble
despite all of the recent accom-
plishments they have had and are


encountering, Russell said.
They both said hard work and
"a hell of a lot of luck" got them to
where they are today.
Despite what comes, they are
ready and enjoy every minute of
their journey as professional musi-
cians, Friedman said.
"We never expected to make it
this far," he said. 'Everything we
get to do has really been a bless-
ing."










Guitar weapon of choice on Massacre's 'Underground'


ROBERT HILSON AVENUE WRITER


Anton -Newcombe isn't .your
run-of-the-mill cult figure.
Fact is, he's not very adept at
keeping a following just ask
one of the several dozen would-be
disciples to play in, and summar-
ily quit, his '60s revivalist collective
The Brian Jonestown Massacre.
Those who've seen the death-by-
psychedelia "DiG!" documentary
know that this guy simply spends
too much time threatening violence
to lull anyone into a false sense of


security.
His songs are a different matter.
The Massacre's 13th studio al-
bum, "My Bloody Underground,"
thrives on a straightforward for-
mula: lay down a devastatingly
hypnotic groove. Sustain groove.
Repeat.
It's a simple ploy, but oh-so-ef-
fective.
Opener "Dropping Bombs on
the Whitehouse" introduces the

Primal Scream's "Accelerator," the acing rhythm. When the apoca-


lypse nears, this is the song that will
herald its coming.
And for many that's a discon-
certing notion, which brings us back
to Newcombe's dilemma.
He and his band exist in an
unsettling parallel universe, one
without boundaries, governed only
by sound and guitar.
To those who concern them-
selves with worldly matters, reality
in particular, Newcombe's cultish
appeal isn't especially attractive.
The tunes, on the other hand,
will have you slurping Kool-Aid.

* Relationship tips for a summer away from campus


Like every semester over the last
couple of years, I have many friends
graduating this term.
S Some still aren't sure if they're leaving
Gainesville, many don't have jobs lined
up and most are both scared and clueless
0 about entering the "real world."
I don't blame them. The only thing
worse than swimming in the college
* dating (read: hookup) pool is having to
leave it and its understood college-town
codes, rules and procedures.
* But when better to break your pat-
terns and reinvigorate your dating kar-
ma than when you're leaving Titletown's
Bubble (if only for a summer hiatus)?
Here's my advice:

Date outside your comfort zone.
If love has been lacking luster for
you, perhaps you re sunply choosing the
wrong people This seems so 'duh" but


truth is, most of us have types. We tend
to, often unconsciously, rigidly adhere to
certain sorts of souls. Try branching out.
Accept the invite from the guy or gal
who is totally not your "type." You may
end up surprised I can personally
vouch for this one working.

Accept others faults.
Don't ever lower you standards, but
acknowledge that you are oh-so-far
from flawless. How can you expect such
perfection from your partner? The most
important thing that I have learned in
a relationship is to choose your battles.
Singles and those dating should do the
same. Consider letting insignificant
blemishes and faults go.

Don't think you can "fix" people.
Accepting others also means real-
izing that you can't ever change a


person's true nature. People are who
they are, and while you should get over
the fact that your beloved occasionally
smacks when they eat, you should not
be so forgiving of something as major as
someone who has no desire to do some-
thing with their life. You won't be able
to break him or her of this, and having
a real relationship means accepting the
realities of this world.
As scary as it may seem to think so far
into the future, would you really want
to have children with someone who is a
total deadbeat?

Be yourself from day one.
Impressing a date will only get you
another one; it won't guarantee a life-
time of happiness. The thing is, you're
going to have to deal with this person at
their best and worst; knowing a person's
real character is the only true way to


ensure a lasting
relationship.

Grow up.
Would you ever
be able to get or
hold a job if you behaved recklessly,
never returned phone calls and were
entirely standoffish to your fellow em-
ployees or boss? k, ,-
Of course not. View dating with the
same common sense. Don't suck up or
become too stifling, but realize that ir-
responsibility and inconsideration are
childish traits that block real relation-
ships from flourishing. Don't wake up
as Scott Baio, which is ultimately lonely.
Don't wait until you are 45 to get a show
on VH1 and hire a life coach just t6 learn
to take this whole dating/relationship
stuff seriously. We all eventually have to
grow up; why not start now?

'Sex and the City' star writes of his life after cancer


STEFANIE ROBERT!
Many of actor Evan Handler's
fans know him best as Harry
Goldenblatt from "Sex and the
City": the balding husband to
WASP-tumed-yenta Charlotte York.
What most of them may not
know is that his signature cue-ball
look is not genetic.
,Ji a side effect from invasive
medical treatments he underwent in
his 20s for acute myeloid leukemia,
a supposedly unbeatable cancer.
"It's not like I'm the only cancer
survivor running around," Handler
said, "but a lot of the renowned
ones are not such young people and
didn't have their illnesses at such a
young age [as I had mine]."
Diagnosed at 24, He wasn't sup-
posed to live to see his 30s. Now 47,


*S AVENUE WRITER
the television, film and Broadway
veteran will release his second
memoir, "It's Only Temporary: The
Good News and the Bad News of
Being Alive," on May 1.
A retrospective glimpse at where
life has taken him since his recov-
ery, "It's Only Temporary" picks
up where his first book "Time On
Fire: My Chronicle of Terrors," an
account of his five-year battle with
cancer, left off.
"It was really the illness that got
me writing," he said. "Even after
I hadn't written for a while after
the first book, the way I got started
again was to say to myself, 'Stop
making the rule that you have to
wait for something in the illness to
write about. Write about how it's


informed your life since.'"
He began writing portions of
the book "some years ago." The
pieces came together as a collec-
tion of provocative essays in which
Handler deftly
balances existen-
tial musings with
S lighthearted an-
ecdotes covering
everything from
junior high gym
class to intercon-
Evan Handler tinental romance.
He makes
life's little absurdities seem simul-
taneously epic and trifling, infusing
his already rich prose with a tension
that mirrors his "ironic struggle to
find contentment in the life he's
lucky to be living."


The ending to Handler's story is
a happy one, culminating in mar-
riage and the birth of his daughter.
Although the bulk of Handler's
romantic and professional experi-
ences are for the most part univer-
sal, he said the book appeals largely
to 20-something readers because it's
filled with dating and relationship
stories similar to those featured in
shows like "Sex and the City," ex-
cept "lived and told by a man."
"The book to me is about a guy
living through his 20s in his 30s, be-
cause his 20s were spent kind of like
as a dying old man," he said. "It's
kind of a life lived backwards, in a
certain way."
Today, Handler is moving swiftly
forward, keeping busy filming the
Showtime series "Californication"


and promoting the upcoming "Sex
and the City" movie release.
He also doesn't plan to shelve his
literary aspirations any time soon.
"Writing is the area where I don't
have as much recognition, so I cer-
tainly would like that to come," he
said. "I'd like to expand the reper-
toire of what kind of books I write."
Fition is a genre he's considered
exploring, but non-fiction is the area
where he feels his ability to inspire
has proven to be most valuable.
"I don't think there are so many
very high-profile people who had
such intense experiences at such a
young age as I did," he noted. "I
think it's really cool to send the mes-
sage, 'Here's what I was told was
impossible, and here I am existing
and doing this stuff."

No. 3 Gators sweep 'Noles on road


* TIFFANY DeFELICE HAD
FIVE RBIs ON THE DAY.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

When an offense is as explo-
sive as the Gators', a sub-.320
batting average will land you in


the seventh spot of the lineup.
Freshman Tiffany DeFelice
has been slumping lately after
being moved into the heart of
UF's batting order.
"I'm pretty hard on myself
about that kind of stuff, when it
comes to not hitting," DeFelice
said. "I was a little disappointed
with myself over the past few
weeks."


After being moved to
seventh for the first game of
Wednesday's doubleheader
sweep over FSU (32-21, 8-7
Atlantic Coast Conference),
she showed why she is still one
of the No. 3 Gators' (48-2, 18-1
Southeastern Conference) big-
gest offensive weapons.
Against FSU ace Tiffany
McDonald, DeFelice went 2 for

March 29. DeFelice led UF with five RBIs in Wednesday's sweep of FSU.


3 with an RBI double over the
left fielder's head.
"I'm not really sure (what
I was doing differently)," she
said. "I went up with a little bit
of a dearer head."
In the second game, she was
moved to sixth in the order
and responded by stuffing the
stat sheet in Nick Calathes-like
fashion.
Her final line read 1 for 2
with a walk, two runs scored
and a team-high four RBI.
After the game, she was
quick to say she didn't mind be-
ing moved down in the order.
"I'm totally cool with batting
down there," DeFelice said. "I
don't care where I'm hitting."
The tremendous perfor-
mance by DeFelice raised her
average to .330 on the season
- fourth among everyday
Gators players and helped
set the tone for two UF wins.
In the first game, junior
Stacey Nelson was lights out as
she outdueled McDonald in a
6-1 decision.
After striking out just one
hitter in her last outing against
Georgia, Nelson struck out nine
FSU batters while allowing one
run in a complete game perfor-
mance.
"I was able to use my screw-
ball today, especially against the
lefties," she said.
Nelson got a rare game off in
the nightcap when the Gators'
offense exploded inside JoAnne
SEE SOFT, PAGE 27


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MIAMI Tim Hudson threw as hard
as he could, and for the Atlanta Braves, the
result was doubly troublesome.
Hudson's fastball hit only 85 mph. And
Mike Jacobs hit it over the wall.
With Hudson unable to generate his
normal velocity, the Florida Marlins took
advantage and beat the struggling Atlanta
Braves 6-5 Wednesday night.
Hudson departed after only three in-
nings trailing 4-1.
"I felt all right physically," he said. "I
just couldn't get anything behind the ball.
It was a weird feeling. My heater's usually a
lot better than that."


* Hudson (2-1) endured his first poor start
of the season, allowing six hits. Manager
Bobby Cox pulled the right-hander after
only 58 pitches.
"I thought it might be a good
time to give (Hudson) a-break."
Bobby Cox
Atlanta Braves manager

"It was just one of those nights when
his arm was kind of dead," Cox said. "I
thought it might be a good time to give him
a break."
The Braves lost their third in a row and
fell to 0-7 in one-run games. They're 2-7 on
the road.


"How does the saying go? 'You can't
win the division in April, but you can lose
it,'" left fielder Matt Diaz said. "We have to
make sure we don't do that."
Mark Hendrickson (3-1) won his third
start in a row for surprising Florida. Jacobs
hit his sixth home run, and Luis Gonzalez
added a two-run pinch-hit homer, his first
since 1992.
The Marlins are last in the NL in ERAbut
9-0 when scoring at least four runs. They
lead the NL East despite the lowest payroll
in the majors.
"It's a good win for us," Gonzalez said.
"It keeps us rolling. We beat a pretty good
pitcher tonight."

Football recruit responsible for breaking National Championship trophy


(AP) Stop the conspiracy theories: it wasn't
a jealous rival who broke the Florida Gators' 2006
National Championship trophy.
It was a prospective player, a high school tight
end from Tampa, who says it was an accidental
bump that destroyed the $35,000 crystal trophy on
Friday of last week.
Orson Charles says he was on a tour when
he snapped pictures of quarterback Tim Tebow's


Heisman trophy and toppled the BCS trophy.
Coaches joked afterward that Charles would
have to commit to play for Florida now. (Not really.
The trophy is insured, and a new one is expected to
arrive in 90 days.)
Charles' high school coach may have given the
Gators the best scouting report on him, as well as a
bit of foreshadowing. He described the teen asa "bull
in a china shop."

Cohen put off a promising professional career to join Gators


TEN N IS, from page 28

peeking order is a favorite pastime
for the Cohens. Julia teams up
with Richard in mixed doubles,
and they take on Josh and Nancy,
Julia's mother.
"In that, anyone can win,"
Richard Cohen said. "But it's ex-
tremely competitive and for brag-
gig'rights. It's a lot of fun."
Julia and Josh keep things
competitive between themselves
as well.
"They have such fierce battles
on the court," Richard Cohen said.
"It's very interesting to watch. Off
the ground they really go at each
other."
During her spring break just
a few weeks ago, Cohen traveled
with her father to South Barrington,
Il., a suburb of Chicago, to play
in the USTA Senior National
Father-Daughter Indoor Doubles
Championships.
Cohen came away with her 15th
career Gold Ball, a token symbolic
of a national title.
"It was wonderful to win a
national championship and get a
Gold Ball," 61-year-old Richard
Cohen said. "Especially when you
win it with your daughter, it's re-
ally amazing. I won the National
Father and Son (Championships)
with Josh, and to win it with Julia
was just amazing."
The Cohens entered the match
as the No. 2 seed, facing the No. 1
seed and leaving with a thrilling
7-6 (4), 2-6, 7-6 (6) victory. Down
6-5 and match point in the third-
set tiebreak, Julia hit a backhand
wier down the line to save the
match and give her and her dad
the push they needed to win.
"I was so happy because any
time I can win for my dad it means

a lot to me," Cohen said. "I'd pre-
fer to win with him than other stuff
because it means so much to him."
Richard added, "It was about
the best experience of my life to
win a national championship with
my kid. I didn't expect it. To see
Julia that happy and play that well
was just fantastic."

College or Pro?
Cohen knew a little bit about
UF through another Philadelphia
native and former Gator, UF
Hall of Famrer and Grand Slam
doubles champion Lisa Raymond.
Raymond gave
her some advice
on attending
college before
turning pro.
"She's from
Philadelphia, so
when she's there
Thornqvist I meet with her,"
Cohen said. "She came to Florida,
and she told me that it'd be a good
choice for me."
Raymond, whose highest WTA
singles ranking was No. 15, told
Cohen about her experience at
UF while the two were practicing
together in Philadelphia.
"She told me that they treat
the athletes really well, and it's a
great atmosphere and the tennis
program will help my game a lot,"
Cohen said.
Cohen watched Raymond play
when she was growing up and
even played with her at a young
age.
"She plays a lot differently from
me," Cohen said. "But I still look
up to her a lot."
Cohen was one of the top
recruits in the U.S., but many
thought she was just going to turn
pro.
Her father said about 200


schools called him and he told
them the same thing.
The plans changed about
five months ago. UF head coach
Roland Thomqvist had followed
Cohen since she was about 12
years old, when she started play-
ing junior events in Florida.
"We were trying to get her to
come in the fall, but she wanted
to continue to play (pro tourna-
ments)," Thomqvist said. "And
then she called us in November,
December maybe, and said,
'Hey, I'm thinking about going to
school.'"
Cohen visited UF .in December
for the first time and made her
choice between school and a pro
career a bit easier.
"At the last second, she visited
Florida and fell in love with it,"
Richard said. "Roland came up to
Philadelphia. We had a great visit.
We spent a lot of time together, and
I thought he was a super coach. So
we made the decision for her to go
to Florida right now and put off
the pro career."
She enrolled in January and
missed the first week of class to
play in a professional tournament.
When she finally arrived, she
wasn't used to being in classes
with a large number of people, as
she had been home-schooled since
third grade.
Cohen's teammates helped her
adjust to college life right away,
but it didn't take much for her to
fit right in.
"I took the same classes as
she's taking right now, so I said
something about those classes,"
sophomore Csilla Borsanyi said.
"But basically that's it, because
she's very (mature) on the court,
so she doesn't really need advice
on the court.
"She's very nice but she's really,

really shy. Then she just opened
up, and she's just so funny that we
have to laugh at her all the time."

Spark Plug
Cohen's presence changed the
dynamics of this year's team right
away.
She came in and started playing
at the No. 1 position, something
very rare for a freshman to do in
college tennis.
"I think she's got the po-
tential to be top 25 in the
world if she develops her
transition game and her
serve."
Richard Cohen
Julia Cohen's father

"Even though she is playing
(Court No.) 1, she's handled her-
self perfectly," Thornqvist said.
"She's allowed the seniors to lead.
"There's never been any feath-
ers ruffled by her coming in play-
ing one. She's been very respectful
to the others, and she's followed
along with their leadership, which
has allowed the chemistry ofthis
team to be maybe the best it's been
in years."
Cohen has used her speed and
defense along with her ability to
exploit opponents' weaknesses en
route to a 13-3 singles record. She
has teamed up with sophomore
Anastasia Revzina in doubles, and
the duo is unbeaten on the year.
"We started to play doubles,
and we really got to know each
other," Revzina said. "I couldn't
wish for a better doubles partner.
We're still undefeated, and we're
so proud of it."
Cohen has already been named
SEC Freshman of the Year by the


league's coaches and her squad is
a favorite to win the conference
tournament, but she has her sights
on another prize.
"I'd like to win a national cham-
pionship," Cohen said. "That'd
mean a lot to me."
After the season ends, Cohen
will be pressed to make a decision
to remain in college for at least an-
other year or turn pro.
"We've talked loosely about it,"
Thorqvist said. "I think she's on
the two-year program here. She'll
play two years. Maybe she'll play a
lot of WTA events this coming fall.
Maybe a very small number of col-
lege events. And then play another
season next spring and maybe see
where that takes it."
Richard agrees.
"She'll probably stay in college
another year," he said. "Then we'll
see where she's at, re-evaluate
things and possibly go pro after
that if her game's ready for it."
And as for her limit in the
professional world, her father has
high hopes.
"I think she's got the potential
to be top 25 in the world if she de-
velops her transition game and her
serve," Richard said.
Until then, it's the college way .
for Cohen.
She described a typical day as
tennis in the morning, then class,
more tennis in the afternoon, run-
ning on her own, sleeping, waking
up and playing more tennis.
It's hard to get Cohen off the
court, but when it happens, she
always reverts back to the game
she loves most.
"I like to go running, shop-
ping," she said. "I really like to
play tennis every day though. It's
hard for me to stay away from it."
After all, did she ever really
have a choice?

Graf Field.
Junior Ali Gardiner, sophomore Francesca
Enea and senior Mary Ratliff all had multi-hit
games on the way to a 14-4, five-inning victory.
The Gators logged 13 hits and 13 runs
against FSU's No. 2 starter Terese Gober before
chasing her from the game after four innings of
work.
"I think our team is hitting pretty well right
now," DeFelice said. "A lot
of people are making good
contact."
UF coach Tim Walton
pointed to the team's ability
Softball to hit the ball up the middle
and not try to pull the ball
against two solid pitchers as the reason for the
offense's success.
Freshman Stephanie Brombacher got the
win and ran her record to 15-0 despite giving
up eight hits in five innings.
"She did good. I don't feel like the score re-
flected how she was pitching," Nelson said.
While the Gators handled the rival
Seminoles with relative ease, Walton laughed
at the idea of the Seminoles being a letup in the
tough SEC slate.
"There was no break. We haven't had a
break in a long, long time," he said. "It's an in-
state rivalry. People put a lot of stock into those
games."


Delhi that the torch will pass.
In Pakistan, runners carried the
Olympic flame around the outside of
the Jinnah Stadium in the capital of
Islamabad on Wednesday, an invitation-
only event in front of a sparse crowd
with heavy security.
"This is a fine balance that is
being maintained."
C. Uday Bhaskar
New Delhi analyst

President Pervez Musharraf handed
the torch to the first runner and later said
the Pakistani people stood with China
"in this glorious event you host for the
entire world."
The Pakistan Olympic Association
urged broadcasters using state TV cover-
age of the torch to avoid "negative com-
ments" and to make "no mention" of the
Tibet disturbances.
India and China are forging their
closest ties since they fought a 1962
border war. Last year, two-way trade


reached $37 billion.
Both countries, with their billion-plus
populations, are seeking a greater role
on the world stage, spurred by rapidly
growing'economies. However, India is
still wary of China, whose economic,
diplomatic and military clout in has
grown in recent years.
But public sympathy in India lies
with the Tibetans, who have sought ref-
uge in the country since the Dalai Lama
fled Tibet after a failed uprising against
Beijing .in 1959, setting up his govern-
ment-in-exile in the northern tdoi of
Dharmsala.
While India needs to bow to popular
sentiment and allow some Tibetan pro-
tests, it must ensure it does not jeopar-
dize its important relations with China,
analysts say.
"This is a fine balance that is being
maintained," said New Delhi-based ana-
lyst C. Uday Bhaskar. "It is about seeing
the big picture. Indo-Sino relations have
a depth and implications for both coun-
tries, policy review cannot be done on an
emotive issue."


Gonzales' home run helps Florida pull away in the seventh


MARLINS, from page 25

Hudson usually throws in the low 90s, but his fastball stayed
in the 84- to 86-mph range. Cox and his staff, already dealing
with a wave of injuries, kept asking Hudson if something was
wrong.
"I didn't know what to tell them," Hudson said. "Nothing
was hurting.... Next time I'll throw harder."
Hudson said his problem may have been a recent bout with
the flu. He lost for the first time in seven career starts in Miami,


where he had been 4-0. His ERA rose from 2.14 to 3.38.
Florida was nursing a 4-3 lead when new-
comer Gonzalez homered in the seventh. It
was only the second pinch-hit homer for the
40-year-old outfielder, who is a reserve this
. year for the first time in his career.
44 "He has been a tremendous asset in this
*clubhouse, the way he carries himself,"
Hus Hendrickson said. "For the young guys to
see what his bat did there in a pinch-hit role
is another way for him to be a teacher."

"By speaking out when the Chinese
government brings the Olympic torch
to India, you will send a strong message
to Tibetans, to the Chinese government,
and to the world that Indians support
the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan people's
nonviolent struggle for freedom and

Some exiles have said they plan to

Born to Serve


Top freshman Cohen uses tennis background to lead UF into SEC Tourney


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

Before she even set foot in this world,
Julia Cohen didn't have much of a choice.
--Men if she had, it probably would have
been the easiest decision of her life.
"My dad played [tennis] for the
University of Pennsylvania and my mom
plays as well," Cohen said. "So before I was
born I was going to be a tennis player."
Now, it seems pretty clear to the UF
freshman that this was the right path to take
- or be forced into, for that matter.
Cohen started hitting tennis balls when
she was just 2 years old. She began playing
in tournaments when she was 5, and at 6 she
was ranked No. 1 in 18-and-qnder doubles in
the United States Tennis Association Middle
States region, which includes Pennsylvania,
New Jersey and Delaware.
"When I was 8, I was pretty good," she
said. "I. won like eight internationals, so
we knew I was pretty good when I was
younger."
Next, Cohen was a national champion in
the 9-and-under division, and at 11 she was
the top-ranked 12-and-under singles player
in the U.S.
She played her first professional event
when she was just 14, and she reached No. 6
in the International Tennis Federation Junior
Rankings when she was 15.
As a member of the UF women's ten-


nis team, Cohen has skyrocketed up the
Intercollegiate Tennis Association rankings
this season to No. 27.
She currently has a professional rank-
ing of No. 398 in the Women's Tennis
Association Tour singles rankings and was


once as high as No. 360 in the world.
Cohen will help lead the No. 5 Gators
(18-1, 11-0 Southeastern Conference) in the
upcoming postseason stretch, beginning
with the SEC Tournament in Auburn, Ala.,
on Friday.

While her accomplishments continue
to snowball, Cohen remembers that it all
started with her family's love for the game.

Keeping the Tradition
Cohen has lived in Philadelphia her entire
life, just five minutes from the University of
Pennsylvania, where she played tennis ev-
ery day growing up.
The City of Brotherly Love could hardly
measure up to the passion her family had
for tennis.
Her father, Richard, was captain of the
tennis team while he was at Penn. He pur-
sued a professional tennis career for two
years after college before going to medical
school.
"I wasn't good enough to do it consis-
tently, and I wasn't earning my expenses,"
said Richard Cohen, a board-certified
psychiatrist for more than 30 years. "So al-
though my love was tennis, I decided to go
to med school."
Cohen's 23-year-old brother, Josh,
graduated from Miami last year as an All-
American on the men's tennis team. He
is now the men's tennis assistant coach at
Penn.
"Josh is probably the best player in the
family," Richard Cohen said. "Julia's a close
second, and I'm a far third. My wife's a
pretty good player, and she's fourth."
Battling for those spots in the family


UF tennis player and SEC Freshman of the Year Julia Cohen will look to continue her
stellar season when the No. 5 Gators start conference tournament play Friday. SEE TENNIS, PAGE 26
