UF adds fee option to provide budget relief


* FEE LETS COLLEGES
CHARGE FOR EQUIPMENT.

By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org

Equipment-use fees that UF
piloted this semester in f6ur col-
leges will be made available across


the university this fall as part of a
larger effort to generate funds in
light of major budget cuts.
The fee allows UF colleges and
departments to charge students
per credit hour for "significant
equipment" in a course, which
could include microscopes, musi-
cal instruments and video equip-
ment, as long as the college shows


"I'm no longer going to sit
around and wait for the
state."
Bernie Machen
UF president

records proving the equipment is
used.
The specific amounts of the fees


depend on the equipment covered.
The charges will include costs for
repair, replacement and insurance
for class equipment and will only
apply to undergraduate students.
SEach college must fill out an ap-
plication form before implement-
ing a fee. College deans will have
authority to lower proposed fees,
and the Office of the Provost must


approve each amount.
In a meeting with Alligator re-
porters on Thursday, UF President
Bernie Machen said funds gener-
ated through fees would likely be-
come an important resource for UF
to get back in the black following
an anticipated blow to its budget.

Dems' ads hostile in Pa.


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

With the approach of today's
Pennsylvania presidential primary the
first Democratic primary since March 11
- campaigning by both candidates has
gotten aggressive.
Referring to a highly publicized, com-
ment recently made by her opponent, an
advertisement endorsed by Sen. Hillary
Clinton opens, "Barack Obama said that
people in small towns 'cling to guns or
religion...as a way to explain their frustra-
tions....'"
The ad features men and women look-
ing into the camera saying things like, "It


just shows how out of touch Barack Obama
is," and "The good people of Pennsylvania
deserve a lot better than -what Barack
Obama said."
Sen. Barack Obama
released an ad calling
Clinton's recent ads
j "eleventh-hour smears
paid for by lobbyist
money."
The Pennsylvania
primary, which experts
Clinton expect Clinton to win,
has carried increasingly more weight for
both candidates, said Michael Heaney, a
UF political science assistant professor.

Andrew Enriquez, a third-year his-
tory student, had 212 friends, pumped iron
whenever he could and loved listening to
Tupac according to his Facebook profile.
When 20-year-old Enriquez died in a
car accident in September 2007, many of
those 212 friends turned to his abruptly
abandoned profile for another glimpse at
his warm smile.
The dead are memorialized through
prayer cards, candlelight vigils, flower gar-
dens and scholarship funds.
But today's youth are turning to more
unconventional means of remembering
those who have died.
They're memorializing their loved ones
through Facebook.


Eight months later, Enriquez is still be-
ing tagged in pictures and receiving wall
posts from friends.
Sentiments like "missing you," "think-
ing of you" and "can't believe it's been
eight months, home" serve as a gentle re-
minder that Enriquez was, and
On the stillis,lovedbymany.
Web Wayne Griffin, associate
director of the UF Counseling
Center and a specialist in loss and bereave-
meit, said that Facebook is a great tool for
not only remembering the dead but for
helping those who are grieving to express
their emotions in a healthy way.
"In the virtual world, we try to create
worlds or existences that parallel our own
but last longer," Griffin said.

Contacting trustees requires going through middleman


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org

At the beginning of the fall, all
it took was two clicks from UF's
home page to call up your favorite
UF trustee and ask him or her your
burning question. But not today.
UF's Board of Trustees, the uni-
versity's highest governing body,
used to provide phone numbers
for each trustee except for the
Student Body president on its
Web site.
But since September 2007, ques-
tions have gone through Brian
Beach, the board's liaison, and Beach
has forwarded them to the trustees.
Beach said he took the phone
numbers off the Web site because
trustees were receiving disruptive
phone calls at home in the middle
of the night.
But only four out of the 12 phone
numbers formerly listed were home
phone numbers.
He said the sudden influx of calls
might have been due to the Tasering
of a UF student by University Police
Department officers at a campus


speech.
Beach said the system was also
changed because he knows when
the trustees are reachable, so he can
direct questions to the trustees who
are available and can provide the
best answers.
The site currently lists one UF
phone number and address, which
connects to Beach's secretary for
board activities, he said.
If someone wants to e-mail ma-
terials to
UF the board,
Administratioa he said he
offers his
e-mail ad-
dress and then forwards the mes-
sage to the trustees.
He said he never screens the
questions.
. "I don't look at something and
say, 'Oh, that's not worthy of trustee
contact,'" he said. "That's never go-
ing to happen."
Although Beach and the trustees
stand by the new system, three of
Florida's public universities provide
direct contact information for their
trustees and six others list a group
e-mail address.


Only one other Florida college,
New College of Florida, does not
provide any contact information on
its board's Web site.
Beach said he didn't feel that
listing the trustees' e-mail addresses
was necessary, and he hasn't heard
any complaints.
Dianna Morgan, the board's
chairwoman, said she hasn't heard
any concerns either, and she said
she feels the board is still adequately
available.
"I certainly feel like given the
communication I've received in the
last few weeks that there is ample
access," Morgan said.
Between the impending bud-
get cuts and the Students for a
Democratic Society's hunger strike,
she said she responded to about 20
letters and e-mails last week.
Morgan's home number was one
of the four listed before the change,
and she said she remembers two
nights in particular when she re-
ceived calls every hour until about
4 a.m.
She said calls to a trustee's busi-
ness could be just as disruptive
because they interrupt the trustees'


jobs.
"We love our work at the univer-
sity, but we do recognize that we all
have other responsibilities in life,"
she said.
Cynthia O'Connell, another
trustee, works as senior vice
president of a public relations firm.
O'Connell said she used to receive
unexpected calls at her office about
UF business, which made it difficult
to balance her work duties.


She said the new system is more
efficient because Beach can direct
questions to her when she's avail-
able.
She still receives the same num-
ber of questions a week any-
where from two to 10 depending on
the time of year, she said.
"Anybody who's needed to talk
to me has had no trouble finding
me," she said. "I don't feel like we're
isolated."

Facebook memorials help students stay connected to friends who have died


FACEBOOK, from page 1

Flowers set out for a person are eventually
going to wilt and die, but Internet profiles
have longevity, he said.
Enriquez's older sister, Amanda Enriquez,
comments on his page at least once a week,
she said.
She writes simply to say "hello," to tell
him her plans for the day or to wish him a
"Happy Easter."
Before making a recent visit to his
gravesite, she left a message that read, "go-
ing to go visit u now..i love you andy!"
She has yet to figure out her brother's
account password, so for now his profile
remains exactly how he left it, and she takes
solace in reading other people's messages to
her little brother.
"Seeing people write on it makes me feel
better," said Enriquez's sister, a student at
the University of Miami. "I know my mom
got a Facebook because of it."
She said her mother, Sue Enriquez,
opened the account so that she could read
the affectionate messages regularly left by
his friends on the popular social network-
ing site.
When a young student dies, many friends
and family members are not present but still
want to feel connected, even if they can't
make the memorial services, Griffin said.
Online communities, like Facebook and
MySpace, allow them to be involved, even
from a distance.
"It provides a way for them to express
themselves as if they were there; a virtual
reality," Griffin said.
But, in some cases, even the virtual reality
is short-lived.
Facebook policy expects profiles of the
dead to be turned into memorials, but is
vague about how long profiles will be kept
active.
"When we are notified that a user has
died, we will generally, but are not obligated
to, keep the user's account active under a
special memorialized status for a period of
time determined by us to allow other users
to post and view comments," according to
Facebook's Terms of Use.
Even so, Facebook administrators re-
ally have no way of knowing that a user has
died unless someone notifies them, so these
profiles may be overlooked for an indefinite
amount of time. This is good for Nicole
Martingano, a junior studying criminology,
who uses these virtual memorials to stay
connected.


When UF student Eric Gold died,
Martingano lost both a therapist and a
friend.
"One day you're working with that per-
son, and the next day you see them on the
front page of the Alligator," she said.
Gold died at Shands at UF in January 2008
after a long struggle with lymphoma cancer.
"One day you're working with that
person, and the next day you see
them on the front page of the
Alligator."
Nicole Martingano
UF criminology junior

Though Gold, a second-year law student,
had been in and out of hospitals his entire
life, he never let his health problems get in
the way, Martingano said.
The two met after Martingano was hit by
a drunken driver in 2006. After coming out of
a coma, she was left with severe brain dam-
age and facial paralysis.
Gold was Martingano's speech therapist
and spent countless hours teaching her how
to speak and swallow again.
"He was somebody who saw people
through," she said.


While nothing will bring Gold back,
Martingano can recall fond memories with a
click of the mouse.
He's still eating at The Swamp Restaurant
with friends, posing in cap and gown at
graduation and hugging his girlfriend.
Still images keep him alive in the minds
of all those leaving comments on his page,
including Martingano, who left one recently
thanking Gold for the role he played in help-
ing her recover from her accident.
"It was just me thinking about Eric," she
said.
Griffin's dealings with those in mourn-
ing have taught him that many people find
it physically hard to express their feelings
following a tragedy. Facebook allows those
who bottle their emotions to express them
in a relatively private yet public manner,
Griffin said. Two-way dialogue once took
place strictly in person.
"Growing up, that kind of connection oc-
curred in small towns at viewings," he said.
Now two-way dialogue can occur over
the computer in the form of written commu-
nication, where healing can occur between
friends and family members who are oceans
apart. Sentiments that may have been hard
for some to share in person can be expressed
over the computer without a spoken word,
Griffin said.

after his death.


While personal profiles tend to contain
messages addressed to the one who has
passed away, group profiles provide a
chance for family and friends to share their
feelings by rallying behind the person being
remembered.
Healing can be facilitated through shar-
ing anecdotes and observations about loved
ones, Griffin said.
Catherine Barclift, a graduate of Florida
State University and a new law student at
UF, was killed in November 2007 after she
was hit by a car while jogging. That day, stu-
dents created a group called "Im Praying for
Catherine Barclift," and though she passed
away the next day, the group still has 862
members.
Two other groups, "Petition for an
Honorary J.D. (Juris Doctor) for Catherine
Barclift" and "I'm running for Catherine,"
were also created in her honor.
Jillian Levy, a senior law student, was
Barclift's ambassador at law school orien-
tation and was immediately struck by her
enthusiasm.
"My favorite thing about Catherine was
how naturally magnetic she was," Levy said.
"People were just drawn to her because she
was so friendly, energetic and genuinely
kind. Everyone loved being around her be-
cause she was just so happy all of the time."
When Barclift died, she was training for
a marathon with some friends from law
school.
"I'm Running for Catherine" was a group
created for those who planned on running
in the race to honor her, Levy said. To Levy
and many others, Facebook provided a way
for family and friends to remember Barclift
together.
"I think the most important thing about it
was that it was a place to grieve with other
people who knew her and understood the
silly little stories and memories that we
missed the most," Levy said.
In her most recent message on the "I'm
Running for Catherine" page, Levy thanked
those who participated in the run for Barclift,
saying that Barclift would have loved the
involvement.
While friends and family will grow old,
Enriquez, Gold and Barclift will be forever
young in the minds of those who remember
them through their Facebook profiles.
"For me, sometimes I'll find myself just
thinking about Catherine and will pull up
her profile," Levy said. "Even if we're not
all talking about it everyday, you can see on
the groups or her profile that we still think
about her a lot."

IFAS professor receives UF's highest faculty honor


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

At age 16, Lynn Bailey represented her
home state of South Carolina in a nation-
wide 4-H competition for her research on
nutrition and healthy dieting.
About 50 years later, Bailey, now a UF
food science and human nutrition professor,
is still reeling in awards for her studies on
nutrition, vitamins and diets.
Bailey was named this year's UF Teacher
Scholar of the Year, UF's highest award for
faculty. To Bailey, the award is a lifetime
achievement and a lesson in humility be-
cause she knows the caliber of those she was
chosen over, she said.
Bailey said her 4-H experiences are what
motivated her to become a college professor
and make nutrition, specifically a vitamin
called folate, which can prevent birth de-
fects, the focus of her life's work.
Bailey has been teaching for 30 years at
UE She also collaborates with the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention, Peking
University Health Science Center and a re-
search group at UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences to study nutrition in
Northern China.

Bailey said her favorite part of her job is
incorporating her real-life research in China
to support her classroom lessons at UF, she
said.
"I'm a better teacher because of my re-

Bailey was joined by her husband, Gary
Rodrick, also a professor in the depart-
ment, and her 86-year-
UF old mother from South
Academics Carolina at a Thursday
awards ceremony at
Emerson Alumni Hall.
In addition to receiving a gold medallion
framed in a glass case and a plaque describ-
ing her honor, Bailey also received $5,000
that she hasn't decided how to spend.
"I haven't gotten beyond just enjoying
the moment," she said. "IFAS is very proud
of this award."
Jimmy Cheek, senior vice president of
IFAS, said in a telephone interview that he
has known Bailey for more than 30 years.
"It couldn't have happened to a more
competent faculty member and a nicer per-
son," Cheek said.

Editorial


Green Goals

UF has come a long way

but still has work to do

UF's ongoing campus sustainability efforts and the progress
that has been made to reduce the university's large environ-
mental impact.
Since 2001, UF has adopted Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design (LEED) criteria for design and construc-
tion for all major new construction and renovation projects on
campus.
Last year, the UF's Physical Plant Division pledged a com-
mitment to green cleaning practices throughout the 900-plus
buildings maintained by the department. That included "green-
er" training programs for custodial supervisors and staff and
reducing the amount of harmful compounds used in cleaning.
The Office of Sustainability has also worked with dining
services to develop a plan for implementing sustainability
into the food we eat on campus, including regional sourcing
of food, green catering, energy conservation and transportation
impacts. Gator Dining is also in the process of switching over
all of its disposable service items to biodegradable and recycled
options.
While all these big changes are a great way for one of the
largest campuses in the nation to foster a green image, it's im-
portant to us that the little things are not overlooked.
Though the larger initiatives are more visible and certainly
benefit the sustainability goal, we all know that the little things
add up, too.
For example, while the UF Sustainable Purchasing Directive
suggests that offices purchase recycled paper and durable
and reusable goods, they are as of now not required to do
so. Environmentally preferable products are to be purchased
whenever practical. With the hundreds of printers across cam-
pus and thousands of pages printed each day, we think it's im-
portant that a higher priority is placed on reducing the amount
of wasted paper and other office supplies. Purchasing recycled
products should be the norm.
That being said, we also think it would be an environmen-
tally sound practice if professors began to encourage their
students to hand in papers and projects printed on both sides
of the page. This would essentially cut the amount of paper
students use in half and is a relatively easy and small change
that could have a potentially large impact if implemented across
campus. To take it a step further, professors could take the same
approach when printing tests and syllabuses and reduce the
amount of waste even more.
Another point of wastefulness is campus maintenance. Any
student would be hard-pressed to find a day on campus when
someone is not utilizing a leaf blower to keep the UF grounds
aesthetically pleasing. This is a concentrated waste of energy
and resources. Random trees and bricked landscape areas also
seem to appear overnight. We certainly enjoy having a pretty
place to walk to class that is filled with lush trees and plants,
but we don't understand why so much energy is expended on
maintaining the green vegetation and lawns. The vast expanse
of St. Augustine grass is not sustainable it requires regular
watering in the heat, doesn't produce seed and must be treated
with herbicides and pesticides. It would make more sense to
seed grass or maybe just make peace with the stubborn.dan-
delions.
Little changes, such as presenting an information booklet
to incoming freshmen about living green on campus, increas-
ing the number of recycling bins, not running the escalators at
Library West all night and keeping every building on campus
at a steady 75 degrees could go a long way to keep with the
university's green efforts and encourage student participation
all year round.

Letters to the Editor
Column on pope was ignorant
I was disappointed, but not
surprised, by Vincent Massaro's
column Monday about the
pope's U.S. visit. It confirmed
what many people know but do
not want to admit: Anti-Catholic
speech is one of the remaining ac-
ceptable forms of discrimination
in America today.
The title would have readers
believe that Mr. Massaro has
reasonable concern over the exor-
bitant reception of Pope Benedict
XVI in our country.
However, if you read his


column, you would have been
treated to an incoherent and ig-
norant diatribe against not only
the pope but the Roman Catholic
Church and all Catholics of good
faith. Not only was his indict-
ment of the pope based mainly
on the actions of others (CNN
commentators, spectators, etc.),
but Massaro also tastelessly re-
duced the Catholic liturgy to a
"shindig" or a "boring" sporting
event.
If there is any redeeming value
to be found in Monday's column,
it is at the end, when he suggests

Guest Co;'i :

Unrealistic cultural expectations of beauty unfair to women


You've seen them at the Plaza of the
Americas: Student Government-
sponsored billboards, in an effort
to boost self-esteem, encouraging women
to love their bodies, claiming that "diets
don't work" and assuring everyone that
confident women who don't worry about
looking like supermodels are sexier than
those who do.
Self-esteem and confidence are won-
derful to have, but they don't tell the
whole story. The truth is, regardless of
how we feel about ourselves, women are
judged for our appearances, and we face
material and social consequences if we
don't conform to the culturally accepted
standard of beauty
A 2004 study by the Bureau of Labor
Statistics confirmed this: Overweight and
obese white women get paid less than
their thinner counterparts, while white


men don't face the same discrimination.
No amount of self-confidence in the world
will make up for getting paid less for do-
ing the same work.
For women, maintaining our appear-
ance to fit into a standard of beauty is
like another job. It requires time spent on
hair care, putting on makeup and shop-
ping for and picking out the right clothes
- and sometimes, these beauty rituals
can be downright painful (bikini waxes,
anyone?).
Beauty standards are often based on
classist and racist ideas; in other times,
heavier women were preferred because it
indicated that one had access to adequate
food.
Now, thin and tan are the standards
because they indicate access to money
and time for expensive health foods
and gym memberships. If you're thin,


Campus NOW however, it doesn't
Speaking Out end there. Women
still face pressure to
have a full bust and
"curves." Regardless of what kind of bod-
ies we have, women still face pressure to
conform to an impossible standard few
can achieve without surgery or airbrush-
ing. The pursuit of beauty is endless for
women; cosmetics is a multi-million dol-
lar industry, and these corporations know
that playing to an audience of women
who face discrimination based on their
looks will help them move products.
Sexism in our society helps these in-
dustries grow into what they are today.
The problem with self-esteem cam-
paigns is that they treat women's inse-
curities about their looks as individual
problems, when in reality it's a collective
problem oppressing women as a whole.


,An individual woman can choose
not to wear makeup or worry about her
weight and have all the self-confidence
in the world, but self-confidence won't
stop her from facing discrimination in the
workplace or from her family.
There's nothing wrong with working
out and eating healthily or enjoying shop-
ping and wearing makeup.
What is wrong is the expectation that
women do these things, and that we face
material and social consequences if we
don't conform.
To explore these issues further, join
UF Campus NOW tonight at 8 p.m. at the
Civic Media Center for a screening of the
film Killing Us Softly 3 and a discussion of
beauty standards afterward.

Boyer are members of the UF Campus

Local boy learning to cope with

autism in world around him


Even though he sees things
differently, Tyler Johnson, 9, is not
lost in his own world. Diagnosed
with high-functioning autism,
Tyler loves to socialize with others
and excels in his areas of interest.
A main component of autism is
obsessions or preoccupations with
particular objects. Tyler is fascinat-
ed with shopping carts and spends
a lot of time at the supermarket
selecting the "perfect cart."
He is very smart and remembers
details that many others forget. He
loves cars and enjoys drawing. He
has no problem understanding


math and science, but because of
his autism, language processing
skills are weaker and social inter-
actions are a challenge
Tyler gets along well with his
family and makes friends pretty
easily. He is home-schooled by his
mother at their home in Southwest
Gainesville and attends several
types of therapy.
Although every day is a strug-
gle, Tyler's mother says he's mak-
ing improvements interacting with
the world around him.

CITY COMMISSION

City moves forward


with one-stop center


-City commissioners voted 5-2 at a spe-
cial meeting Monday night to change the
land-use designation for the location of
a proposed one-stop homeless center at
3335 N Main Terrace.
At the same meeting, they voted to
wait four to six months before beginning
to lease the building that would serve as
the center's facility.
The proposed site has met controversy
as residents of nearby communities have
opposed the location.
"It just doesn't do us justice as a com-
munity to continue this failure to act,"
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan said at the
meeting.
The site, which was selected in March
2007, will offer services including meals,
counseling, showers and laundry facili-


ties. Commissioners Rick Bryant and Ed
Braddy opposed the motion.
"I can't think of any location that
doesn't work as much as this one,"
Bryant said.
"It just doesn't do us justice as
a community to continue this
failure to act."

Commissioners have looked into al-
ternative sites for the center. They said
Monday that one of the options, located
on Northwest 53rd Avenue, was no lon-
ger available.

Proposed campus memorial would honor local vets


* MEMORIAL WOULD HONOR POST-
WORLD WAR II VETERANS.

By JOEL MORA
Alligator Contributing Writer

As the United States enters the sixth year
of the war in Iraq, a UF organization wants
to install a memorial for local veterans who
have served the country in the past 63 years.
The Collegiate Veterans Society wants
to place a memorial in the Reitz Union
Amphitheater recognizing all UF and
Gainesville veterans but will focus on-post-
World War II veterans, said Daniel Wojcik,
the organization's president.
Wojcik said modem veterans aren't rec-
ognized on campus as the only two veterans
memorials on campus Ben Hill Griffin


Stadium and Century Tower are dedi-
cated to those who served in World War I and
World War II.
"Our goal is not to make any political
statement," he said. "We just want to recog-
nize the sacrifice and work that University of
Florida Gators have made overseas."
The organization still needs to present the
memorial plans to various university com-
mittees to have it approved.
Eddie Daniels, the Reitz Union's executive
director, said a lot questions about the project
still need to be answered.
"A lot of things need to be worked out,"
Daniels said. "How do you identify persons
that will be recognized? There are a number
of logistical questions that need to be an-
swered."
Because this project is unique, there is no
certain path to its approval, he said.


A campus master-plan committee has to
look at the plans, and a number of other of-
ficials must review the project, including the
vice president of student affairs, before it is
approved, he said.
Wojcik said the memorial plans include
five pillars, two flagpoles
and a floating fountain in
the pond.
17 The flags and pillars
S would be installed in front
of the rail that surrounds
the pond, and a floating
fountain would shoot out
Wojcik a plume of water and have
orange-and-blue lights.
Billy Brame, president of Brame Architects,
has decided to do the project proposal for the
memorial for free.
For Brame, the memorial will not only


be dedicated to his service in the Navy from
1969 to 1975 but also to the service of his step-
son, Jeffrey M. Wershow, who was killed in
Baghdad in July 2003.
"I think the memorial fountain will help
people understand the sacrifices veterans
make, and it will be a physical manifestation
of that," Brame said.
The organization estimated the cost of
the memorial will be between $60,000 and
$80,000, but that isn't definite because it is
not sure if it will receive more donations, he
said.
Once the project proposal is completed,
the organization will go before the UF
Student Senate and request funds to help pay
for the project.
"We want to increase the beauty and us-
ability of that area on campus and hope to
leave it nicer than we found it," he said.

Recent poll predicts Clinton win in Pennsylvania


Unclear how much

new fee would raise

FEE, from page 1

"It's something we're going to see more of," Machen
said. "I'm no longer going to sit around and wait for
the state."
Machen said he predicts UF will have to cut about
$50 million from its budget next year.
The exact amount will be released
at the end of the state Legislature's
spring session.
UF has already begun to enact
similar student charges not covered
by tuition.
UF implemented a transcript fee
Machen this semester, charging $6 per tran-
script for current students and $12 for students who are
no longer registered at UF. Machen said that fee should
generate up to $1 million every year.
Because the specific amounts of equipment fees
depend on each college's proposals, it is not yet known
how much money they will bring in.


PRIMARY, from page 1


A poll conducted Monday
by Quinnipiac University found
Clinton leading Obama 51 percent
to 44 percent with a three-point mar-
gin of error,,
For Obama, Heaney said, a loss to
Clinton could undermine the lead he
has established so far.
For Clinton, a win is necessary to
maintain a reasonable hope of win-
ning the Democratic nomination.
In the face of necessity, both of
the candidates have turned to more
negative campaigning, Heaney said.
While the ads seldom convince
voters to favor candidates, he said,
they can be successful in convincing
them to second guess an on-the-
fence decision..
The negative ads can also be at-
tributed to the candidates' similar
political stances, said Daniel Smith,
a UF political science associate pro-
fessor. These have led them to create
ads that attack each other based on


personal rather than policy issues.
Candidates have also taken ad-
vantage of each other's recent blun-
ders, Smith said.
For example, while Clinton
took advantage of Obama's com-
ment about citizens of small towns,
Obama capitalized on Clinton's
unfounded statement that snipers
attacked her when she was in Bosnia
in the 1990s.
"It's not personal attacks.
It's records on what they
have said." -
Zachary Moller
UF College Democrats president

"Both have made the most out of
those gaffes," Smith said. "It's easy
pickings."
While in some sense, he said,
Republicans should be pleased to
watch the Democratic candidates
criticize each other, Democrats
might ultimately be doing each
other a favor.

didate is selected, presumptive
Republican nominee Sen. John
McCain will seem like he is bringing
up old issues if he attacks his op-
ponent for shortcomings that have
already been exposed.
Zachary Moller, president of UF's
College Democrats, said he didn't
find the ads offensive enough to
turn him off to either candidate.
"It's not personal attacks. It's
records on what they have said,"
Moller said. "This is a campaign.
Stuff like this is going to happen in
the fall."
But he did say he'd prefer it if the
Democratic candidates would attack
McCain instead of each other.
"I think that would be more pro-
ductive, but I'm not running their
campaigns," he said.
Though some have said the attack
ads could drive Democratic support-
ers to vote for McCain, Smith said he
didn't think it would happen.
"Even if they're not happy about
it, they're less happy about the last
eight years under George Bush," he
said.

BRYAN, from page 21

And finally, Nick Zaccardi,
you have been the glue that
has held the sports depart-
ment together. Nobody works
harder than Nick, and nobody
has worked more unselfishly
to help make the sports sec-
tion something to be proud of.
There is no doubt in my mind
that he is the best college
sportswriter in the country.
Please make sure you check
out his farewell -column in
Wednesday's paper.
But most importantly, I
would like to thank the read-
ers. There isn't much glory in
this job. You'd be surprised
how many times I have
watched someone read my
column in the paper with my
picture right next to it and not
even realize it was me.
But what was most impor-
tant to me was that a story
I wrote may have answered
someone's questions, made
someone chuckle, or best of
all, made someone think.
I hope that at some point
during the last few years I
have been able to make your
afternoon bus ride or Man's
Food lecture just a little bit
more enjoyable.

2008 BEIJING SUMMER GAMES

Lochte hopes Gainesville training yields Olympic glory


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

Bad luck first struck Ryan
Lochte on June 30, 1985..
That was the day Michael
Phelps was born.
Lochte was a month shy of his
first birthday in New York when
Phelps was delivered in Baltimore,
Md.
It's not known how long it took
Phelps to crawl or walk, but he
quickly caught Lochte, passed him
and left him in his wake on the in-
ternational swimming scene.
At any other time in the his-
tory of the sport, Lochte would be
looked at as the biggest fish.
But not now, not when Phelps is
busy breaking records that Lochte
would have held, wearing med-
als Lochte could have owned and
appearing on magazine covers
Lochte should have graced.
Tough luck.
Hoping to change his fortune,
Lochte has returned to UF to train
with the Gators swimming team
and its coach, Gregg Troy, for the
Beijing Olympics.
In Lochte's typically laid-
back, mellowed-out manner, he
described what it's like to be at
school, but not in school.
"If I want to take a nap, I can
take a nap," said Lochte, who is an
internship away from graduating


with a degree in sports manage-
ment.
Phelps is more of the com-
petitive sort. When Ian Crocker
handed Phelps his only loss at
the 2003 World Championships,
Phelps reportedly pinned a photo
of Crocker in his room as motiva-
tion and beat Crocker a year later
in the Olympics.
"They're the No. 1 and
No. 2 best swimmers in
the world in a multitude of
events."
Steve Lochte
Ryan Lochte's father

Phelps is ranked among the top
three swimmers in the world in
six of the 13 individual Olympic
events.
He won a record eight medals
at the 2004 Athens Olympics.
Lochte, 23, is starting to make
waves, too.
He joined Phelps in Athens
and flew back to Gainesville with
a substantially lighter medal haul
- one gold, one silver but still a
great reward for his first Olympic
experience.
Since then, he has closed in on
his good friend Phelps and now
has him in his sights heading into
the Beijing Olympics, which begin
on Aug. 8.
Lochte is the only swimmer


in the world who can hang with
Phelps in the individual medley
events, the best tests of swim-
ming because they include all
four strokes: butterfly, backstroke,
breaststroke and freestyle.
"Sure, they're rivals," said
Lochte's father and- longtime


coach, Steve. "They're the No. 1
and No. 2 best swimmers in the
world in a multitude of events. It's
healthy competition. Bottom line
is Ryan would love to continue to
excel and become better."
It's not like Lochte has Phelps'
mug shot fitted into the side of his


bathroom mirror.
But the thoughts must be_ fere,
maybe even in his dreams.
I've got to swim faster than
Michael.
I've got to be better than Michael.
I've got to beat Michael.
SEE LOCHTE, PAGE 22


Former UF swimmer Ryan Lochte comes up for air while he swims the breaststroke during one of his
practice sessions with the UF swimming team as part of his preparation for the 2008 Olympics. Lochte
returned to Gainesville to train with coach Gregg Troy and practices with the UF swimming team daily.


Columnist recalls past successes, failures along storied UFjourney


I've dreaded writing this column for a
while now.
No, not just because I'm incredibly
lazy, but because saying goodbye is some-
thing that has always been difficult for me.
My Alligator career did not have the sto-
rybook ending I envisioned when I ventured
into the paper's open house more than three
years ago without clips, experience or a clue
of what I was getting myself into.
In fact, it appears that my experiment
with sportswriting may be coming to an
end. I don't question that I have the abil-
ity to do this for a living, but I do question
whether I have the passion for this job to do
it for the rest of my life.
But working for the Alligator has been
something I will always remember and al-
ways treasure.


I've accomplished quite a bit over the
past several years.
I've filled the role of reporter, columnist,
editor, assistant editor and online editor for
the sports department and covered every-
thing from sports clubs to volleyball and
baseball to football and men's basketball.
I've traveled to sporting events all across
the southeast and covered the BCS National
Championship Game in Arizona.
I've had articles published in newspapers
and Web sites across the country, and I even
got the chance to be interviewed on radio
stations throughout the nation.
And I've somehow managed to piss
off a lot of people along the way. I'll never
forget the massive amount of hate mail I've
received. I've been called just about every
name you can imagine, and some of them


Sl a aren't even true.
I have also been
fortunate enough
to cover a national
championship foot-
Bryan Jones ball team from spring
Bryan Out Loud practice all the way
bjones@alligator.org through the trophy
presentation, and I
covered bits and piec-
es of a national championship basketball
team. Getting a chance to document some-
thing like that is a sportswriter's dream, and
I am thankful I got that opportunity.
I'll try to avoid turning this into some-
thing that resembles a lame Oscar speech,
but there are some people I have to thank for
helping me along the way.
A big Bryan Out Loud thanks to Andrew


Abramson for giving me a chance when
nobody else would and for believing in me
and doing everything in his power to help
me succeed.
I'd also like to thank Louis Anastasis for
giving me an opportunity to work alongside
him during a hectic 2006 fall semester and
showing me the ropes. You've been a good
friend to me even if I don't agree with any-
thing you say.
Jenna Marina and Brian Steele, thanks for
always being people I could rely on when
I needed help. I regret having had so many
messes for you guys to clean up, but I'll
never forget how unselfish you have been.
Watch out for Mike McCall someday. He
is a rock star. 'Nuff said.

Lochte, Phelps will face off in June's long-anticipated Olympic trials


LOCHTE, from page 21

Then BEEEEEPPPPPP!!!
Thi alarm blares at 5 in the
morning.
Beating Phelps means Lochte
must be up before the sun. -
As he rises, Lochte is quickly re-
minded of what he must improve
upon from his experience at the
2004,lympics.
"Don't eat McDonald's every
day for seven straight days," said
Lochte, who arrived in Athens at
181 pounds and left at 194 thanks
to frequent trips to the fast-food
chain in the athletes' village.
So he rips open a granola bar,
grabs some fruit, guzzles some
Orange juice and jets off to prac-
tice from 6 to 8:30 with younger
swimmers who see Lochte as a
role model.
"You're able to put a face on the
goal, to see what good swimming
is," said UP sophomore Clark
Burckle, who lives with Ryan in
an off-campus house. "I think he
makes everybody step it up more
because they all see what he's
achieved and they want to do that,
too, so it just makes the team better
as a whole."
Lochte dries himself off, drinks


a shake and lifts weights for an-
other 90 minutes.
After a long morning's work,
he drives his 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe
back home, looking to see the one
who loves him no matter what.
His Doberman pinscher, Carter,
waits for breakfast ,while Lochte
feeds himself eggs, pancakes or
waffles before taking a nap.
Practice starts again at 1 p.m.
All this for the Olympics?
"It's a great
honor to swim
for my country,
but I don't re-
ally think about
(Beijing)," said
Lochte, who
in his free time
Phelps draws abstracts,
like rain drops
falling up from the ground into
the sky. "I treat every swim meet
the same as every dual meet (in
college). I've been doing it for so
long."
Lochte has less than four
months to get into Olympic shape.
He struggled mightily in his
first big meet of 2008, the Missouri
Grand Prix in February, sliding to
sixth in two backstroke events --
including one he holds the world
record in and finishing out of

team who will represent their countries in the 2008

the top 10 in four other races.
By contrast, Phelps won four of
his seven events.
But Lochte came back strong at
the short-course world champion-
ships two weeks ago.
He set four world records and
won the 100- and 200-meter indi-
vidual medleys without Phelps in
the field.
Lochte and Phelps will go
head to head again, in June at the
Olympic trials in the most antici-
pated non-Olympic or non-World
Championship meet in recent his-
tory.
"It's every bit as challenging to
make the U.S. team as it is to get a
medal at the Olympics," Troy said.
"Everyone who takes it for granted
is making a mistake."
Lochte will text message Phelps
from time to time, but swimming
won't come up.
Instead, they banter about their
favorite rappers.
Lochte favors Lil' Wayne.
"'It's tight.' That's about all that
is said between us," Lochte said.
Like Phelps, Lochte lets his
results and his endorsements do
more talking for him.
Lochte made sure he would be
remembered upon winning the
200-meter individual medley at
the 2007 World Championships.
After receiving his gold medal
and standing for the national an-
them, Lochte smiled and.revealed
a sparkling silver, diamond-en-
crusted grill, a mold that fits over
teeth, after being dared by his
roommate, fellow swimmer Cullen
Jones.
"It got to the point where I was
like, 'If I get a medal at this point,
I'll wear them on the podium.'
They were like, 'No you won't.
No you won't,'" Lochte said.
"Everyone was in shock that I did
that."
That included Troy.
"I wasn't wild about the idea,"
he admitted, "but it was done
tastefully."


Casey Brooke Lawson Alligator
Lochte, wearing a white swimming cap, and his former UF team-
mates prepare to begin a morning strength drill in the O'Connell
Center pool. Lochte hopes to compete in this summer's Olympics.


Speedo pays the bills for Lochte,
who swims in the company's sleek
LZR Racer suit.
Lochte also recently did a "Got
Milk?" ad and flew to New York
for a "Today" Show appearance
where Matt Lauer mispronounced
his last name.
All the attention is partially
due to his perceived rivalry with
Phelps.


But for Lochte (pronounced
Lock-tee), it's much more than
that.
"Even if I do beat him, I guess I
still won't be satisfied with swim-
ming," said Lochte, who already
has plans for the 2012 Olympics in
London. "I set my goals that way. I
won't be satisfied until I stop mak-
ing goals."

diction made by UF coach Tim
Walton has finally come true.
"She's going to struggle,"
he said of the expectations sur-
rounding freshman pitcher
Stephanie Brombacher. "She's
going to get hit.
"She's going to give up some
home runs."
Through the non-conference
schedule, and at times in confer-
ence play, it looked as though he
might be wrong about the fresh-
man sensation.
It seemed as if she could be
dominant without paying any
dues.
Brombacher carried an ERA
of close to 1, along with an un-
defeated record, into the rough
Southeastern Conference slate.
As No. 3 UF (51-2, 21-1 SEC)
prepares to host Jacksonville (21-
37, 5-17 Atlantic Sun) in a double-
header Tuesday, her undefeated
record is still intact (16-0), but
the freshman has looked more
hittable than ever lately.
In eight starts and nine appear-


ances in the SEC, Brombacher has
posted a 2.10 ERA and allowed
opponents to bat .239 against her
while throwing just two complete
games.
For almost any other pro-
gram, those numbers would be
enough.
But for a team about to make a
championship push, it needs the
No. 2 starter to stay in the circle
for as long as possible.
"I've never really had any
arm problems, knock on
wood. I feel strong right
now."
Stacey Nelson
UFjunior pitcher

Junior Stacey Nelson (33-2,
0.71 ERA) has been better than
advertised in her junior cam-
paign, but there's one number
that should cause coaches and
fans alike some concern.
In the last two years as the ace
of the staff, Nelson has pitched
545 innings.
After last weekend's series
with Kentucky, Walton said he
wants to rest Nelson when he can
but has to go to her when he feels
the game is on the line.
"I'm not going to worry unless
she gives me a reason to worry,"
Walton said.


Recently he has used his No. 1
hurler extensively, starting her in
two of the three games in a series
.and bringing her in to close the
third.
"I've never really had any
arm problems, knock on wood,"
Nelson said. "I feel strong right
now."
If UF is going to capture an
SEC title and make a first-ever
College World Series appear-
ance, Nelson is going to need
Brombacher to help her shoulder
the load.
"She's continued to make
good strides for us and provide
a good amount of inning lift,"
Walton said in a press conference
Monday.
Saturday's performance
against the Wildcats was the
worst of Brombacher's young
career.
Predictably, Nelson came
in and saved the win when it
looked like the game might get
away from the Gators, the same
way she has all season.
As UF turns the final cor-
ner and makes its stretch run,
Brombacher will have the oppor-
tunity to return the favor.
The team will count on her
to save Nelson's arm and, ulti-
mately, the dream of becoming
the first-ever SEC team to win a
national championship.

F"S C 7RP YjO~ TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 2008 UF adds fee option to provide budget relief N FEE LETS COLLEGES CHARGE FOR EQUIPMENT. By LIA GANOSELLIS Alligator Writer eganoselis@sIligator.org Equipment-use fees that UF piloted this semester in f6ur colleges will be made available across the university this fall as part of a larger effort to generate funds in light of major budget cuts. The fee allows UF colleges and departments to charge students per credit hour for "significant equipment" in a course, which could include microscopes, musical instruments and video equipment, as long as the college shows "I'm no longer going to sit around and wait for the state." Bernie Machen UF president records proving the equipment is used. The specific amounts of the fees depend on the equipment covered. The charges will include costs for repair, replacement and insurance for class equipment and will only apply to undergraduate students. .Each college must fill out an application form before implementing a fee. College deans will have authority to lower proposed fees, and the Office of the Provost must approve each amount. In a meeting with Alligator reporters on Thursday, UF President Bernie Machen said funds generated through fees would likely become an important resource for UF to get back in the black following an anticipated blow to its budget.

By KATIE GALLAGHER Alligator Writer kgaIlagher@alligator.org With the approach of today's Pennsylvania presidential primary -the first Democratic primary since March 11 -campaigning by both candidates has gotten aggressive. Referring to a highly publicized. comment recently made by her opponent, an advertisement endorsed by Sen. Hillary Clinton opens, "Barack Obama said that people in small towns 'cling to guns or religion. .as a way to explain their frustrations.'". The ad features men and women looking into the camera saying things like, "It just shows how out of Louch Barack Obama is," and "The good people of Pennsylvania deserve a lot better than -what Barack Obama said." Sen. Barack Obama released an ad calling Clinton's recent ads "eleventh-hour smears paid for by lobbyist inoney." The Pennsylvania primary, which experts clinton expect Clinton to win, has carried increasingly more weight for both candidates, said Michael Heaney, a UF political science assistant professor. SEE PRIMARY, PAGE 10 Students grieve on Internet Facebook profiles become memorials By RACHEL ARROYO Alligator Writer Andrew Enriquez, a third-year history student, had 212 friends, pumped iron whenever he could and loved listening to Tupac -according to his Facebook profile. When 20-year-old Enriquez died in a car accident in September 2007, many of those 212 friends turned to his abruptly abandoned profile for another glimpse at his warm smile. The dead are memorialized through prayer cards, candlelight vigils, flower gardens and scholarship funds. But today's youth are turning to more unconventional means of remembering those who have died. They're memorializing their loved ones through Facebook. Eight months later, Enriquez is still being tagged in pictures and receiving wall posts from friends. Sentiments like "missing you," "thinking of you" and "can't believe it's been eight months, homie" serve as a gentle reminder that Enriquez was, and On the stillis,loved by many. Web Wayne Griffin, associate director of the UF Counseling Center and a specialist in loss and bereavement, said that Facebook is a great tool for not only remembering the dead but for helping those who are grieving to express their emotions in a healthy way "In the virtual world, we try to create worlds or existences that parallel our own but last longer," Griffin said.

TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 3 Contacting trustees requires going through middleman By DEBORAH SWERDLOW Alligator Writer dswerdiow@alligator.org At the beginning of the fall, all it took was two clicks from UF's home page to call up your favorite UF trustee and ask him or her your burning question. But not today. UF's Board of Trustees, the university's highest governing body, used to provide phone numbers for each trustee -except for the Student Body president -on its Web site. But since September 2007, questions have gone through Brian Beach, the board's liaison, and Beach has forwarded them to the trustees. Beach said he took the phone numbers off the Web site because trustees were receiving disruptive phone calls at home in the middle of the night. But oniy four out of the 12 phone numbers formerly listed were home phone numbers. He said the sudden influx of calls might have been due to the Tasering of a UF student by University Police Department officers at a campus speech. Beach said the system was also changed because he knows when the trustees are reachable, so he can direct questions to the trustees who are available and can provide the best answers. The site currently lists one UF phone number and address, which connects to Beach's secretary for board activities, he said. If someone wants to e-mail materials to UF the board, AdminLstrmtion he said he offers his e-mail address and then forwards the message to the trustees. He said he never screens the questions. ."I don't look at something and say, 'Oh, that's not worthy of trustee contact,"' he said. "That's never going to happen." Although Beach and the trustees stand by the new system, three of Florida's public universities provide direct contact information for their trustees and six others list a group e-mail address. Only one other Florida college, New College of Florida, does not provide any contact information on its board's Web site. Beach said he didn't feel that listing the trustees' e-mail addresses was necessary, and he hasn't heard any complaints. Dianna Morgan, the board's chairwoman, said she hasn't heard any concerns either, and she said she feels the board is still adequately available. "I certainly feel like given the communication I've received in the last few weeks that there is ample access," Morgan said. Between the impending budget cuts and the Students for a Democratic Society's hunger strike, she said she responded to about 20 letters and e-mails last week. Morgan's home number was one of the four listed before the change, and she said she remembers two nights in particular when she received calls every hour until about 4 a.m. She said calls to a trustee's business could be just as disruptive because they interrupt the trustees' jobs. "We love our work at the university, but we do recognize that we all have other responsibilities in life," she said. Cynthia O'Connell, another trustee, works as senior vice president of a public relations firm. O'Connell said she used to receive unexpected calls at her office about UF business, which made it difficult to balance her work duties. She said the new system is more efficient because Beach can direct questions to her when she's available. She still receives the same number of questions a week -anywhere from two to 10 depending on the time of year, she said. "Anybody who's needed to talk to me has had no trouble finding me," she said. "I don't feel like we're isolated."

4, ALLIGATOR 0 TUESDAY, APRIL 22,2008 Facebook memorials help students stay connected to friends who have died FACEBOOK, from page 1 Flowers set out for a person are eventually going to wilt and die, but Internet profiles have longevity, he said. Enriquez's older sister, Amanda Enriquez, comments on his page at least once a week, she said. She writes simply to say "hello," to tell him her plans for the day or to wish him a "Happy Easter." Before making a recent visit to his gravesite, she left a message that read, "going to go visit u now.i love you andy!" She has yet to figure out her brother's account password, so for now his profile remains exactly how he left it, and she takes solace in reading other people's messages to her little brother. "Seeing people write on it makes me feel better," said Enriquez's sister, a student at the University of Miami. "I know my mom got a Facebook because of it." She said her mother, Sue Enriquez, opened the account so that she could read the affectionate messages regularly left by his friends on the popular social networking site. When a young student dies, many friends and family members are not present but still want to feel connected, even if they can't make the memorial services, Griffin said. Online communities, like Facebook and MySpace, allow them to be involved, even from a distance. "It provides a way for them to express themselves as if they were there; a virtual reality," Griffin said. But, in some cases, even the virtual reality is short-lived. Facebook policy expects profiles of the dead to be turned into memorials, but is vague about how long profiles will be kept active. "When we are notified that a user has died, we will generally, but are not obligated to, keep the user's account active under a special memorialized status for a period of time determined by us to allow other users to post and view comments," according to Facebook's Terms of Use. Even so, Facebook administrators really have no way of knowing that a user has died unless someone notifies them, so these profiles may be overlooked for an indefinite amount of time. This is good for Nicole Martingano, a junior studying criminology, who uses these virtual memorials to stay connected. When UF student Eric Gold died, Martingano lost both a therapist and a friend. "One day you're working with that person, and the next day you see them on the front page of the Alligator," she said. Gold died at Shands at UT in January 2008 after a long struggle with lymphoma cancer. "One day you're working with that person, and the next day you see them on the front page of the Alligator." Nicole Martingano UF criminology junior Though Gold, a second-year law student, had been in and out of hospitals his entire life, he never let his health problems get in the way, Martingano said. The two met after Martingano was hit by a drunken driver in 2006. After coming out of a coma, she was left with severe brain damage and facial paralysis. Gold was Martingano's speech therapist and spent countless hours teaching her how to speak and swallow again. "He was somebody who saw people through," she said. While nothing will bring Gold back, Martingano can recall fond memories with a click of the mouse. He's still eating at The Swamp Restaurant with friends, posing in cap and gown at graduation and hugging his girlfriend. Still images keep him alive in the minds of all those leaving comments on his page, including Martingano, who left one recently thanking Gold for the role he played in helping her recover from her accident. "It was just me thinking about Eric," she said. Griffin's dealings with those in mourning have taught him that many people find it physically hard to express their feelings following a tragedy Facebook allows those who bottle their emotions to express them in a relatively private yet public manner, Griffin said. Two-way dialogue once took place strictly in person. "Growing up, that kind of connection occurred in small towns at viewings," he said. Now two-way dialogue can occur over the computer in the form of written communication, where healing can occur between friends and family members who are oceans apart. Sentiments that may have been hard for some to share in person can be expressed over the computer without a spoken word, Griffin said. Photo Illustration by Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff A message written on Andrew Enriquez's Facebook wall by his sister Amanda Enriquez after his death. While personal profiles tend to contain messages addressed to the one who has passed away, group profiles provide a chance for family and friends to share their feelings by rallying behind the person being remembered. Healing can be facilitated through sharing anecdotes and observations about loved ones, Griffin said. Catherine Barclift, a graduate of Florida State University and a new law student at UF, was killed in November 2007 after she was hit by a car while jogging. That day, students created a group called "Im Praying for Catherine Barclift," and though she passed away the next day, the group still has 862 members. Two other groups, "Petition for an Honorary J.D. (Juris Doctor) for Catherine Barclift" and "I'm running for Catherine," were also created in her honor. Jillian Levy, a senior law student, was Barclift's ambassador at law school orientation and was immediately struck by her enthusiasm. "My favorite thing about Catherine was how naturally magnetic she was," Levy said. "People were just drawn to her because she was so friendly, energetic and genuinely kind. Everyone loved being around her because she was just so happy all of the time." When Barclift died, she was training for a marathon with some friends from law school. "I'm Running for Catherine" was a group created for those who planned on running in the race to honor her, Levy said. To Levy and many others, Facebook provided a way for family and friends to remember Barclift together. "I think the most important thing about it was that it was a place to grieve with other people who knew her and understood the silly little stories and memories that we missed the most," Levy said. In her most recent message on the "I'm Running for Catherine" page, Levy thanked those who participated in the run for Barclift, saying that Barclift would have loved the involvement. While friends and family will grow old, Enriquez, Gold and Barclift will be forever young in the minds of those who remember them through their Facebook profiles. "For me, sometimes I'll find myself just thinking about Catherine and will pull up her profile," Levy said. "Even if we're not all talking about it everyday, you can see on the groups or her profile that we still think about her a lot." :SiomnediCal Engineering Technology.

TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 5 IFAS professor receives UF's highest faculty honor By KATIE SANDERS Alligator Writer ksanders@alligator.org At age j16, Lynn Bailey represented her home state of South Carolina in a nationwide 4-H competition for her research on nutrition and healthy dieting. About 50 years later, Bailey, now a UF food science and human nutrition professor, is still reeling in awards for her studies on nutrition, vitamins and diets. Bailey was named this year's UF Teacher Scholar of the Year, UF's highest award for faculty To Bailey, the award is a lifetime achievement and a lesson in humility because she knows the caliber of those she was chosen over, she said. Bailey said her 4-H experiences are what motivated her to become a college professor and make nutrition, specifically a vitamin called folate, which can prevent birth defects, the focus of her life's work. Bailey has been teaching for 30 years at U. She also collaborates with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Peking University Health Science Center and a research group at UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences to study nutrition in Northern China. Consumption of folate is low in that area because of limited foods rich in folic acid, such as fruits and vegetables. Deficiency leads to increased numbers of children boen with spina bifida, a disease that causes paralysis and brain damage. Bailey said her favorite part of her job is incorporating her real-life research in China to support her classroom lessons at UF, she said. "I'm a better teacher because of my research," she said. Bailey was joined by her husband, Gary Rodrick, also a professor in the department, and her 86-yearU F old mother from South Acadm cs Carolina at a Thursday awards ceremony at Emerson Alumni Hall. In addition to receiving a gold medallion framed in a glass case and a plaque describing her honor, Bailey also received $5,000 that she hasn't decided how to spend. "I haven't gotten beyond just enjoying the moment," she said. "IFAS is very proud of this award." Jimmy Cheek, senior vice president of IFAS, said in a telephone interview that he has known Bailey for more than 30 years. "It couldn't have happened to a more competent faculty member and a nicer person," Cheek said. or Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff Lynn Bailey poses in her lab in the Food Science and Human Nutrition building Monday afternoon.

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 2008 Editorial Green Goals UF has come a long way but still has work to do In the spirit of Earth Day, we think it's necessary to applaud UF's ongoing campus sustainability efforts and the progress that has been made to reduce the university's large environmental impact. Since 2001, UF has adopted Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) criteria for design and construction for all major new construction and renovation projects on campus. Last year, the UF's Physical Plant Division pledged a commitment to green cleaning practices throughout the 900-plus buildings maintained by the department. That included "greener" training programs for custodial supervisors and staff and reducing the amount of harmful compounds used in cleaning. The Office of Sustainability has also worked with dining services to develop a plan for implementing sustainability into the food we eat on campus, including regional sourcing of food, green catering, energy conservation and transportation impacts. Gator Dining is also in the process of switching over all of its disposable service items to biodegradable and recycled options. While all these big changes are a great way for one of the largest campuses in the nation to foster a green image, it's important to us that the little things are not overlooked. Though the larger initiatives are more visible and certainly benefit the sustainability goal, we all know that the little things add up, too. For example, while the UF Sustainable Purchasing Directive suggests that offices purchase recycled paper and durable and reusable goods, they are as of now not required to do so. Environmentally preferable products are to be purchased whenever practical. With the hundreds of printers across campus and thousands of pages printed each day, we think it's important that a higher priority is placed on reducing the amount of wasted paper and other office supplies. Purchasing recycled products should be the norm. That being said, we also think it would be an environmentally sound practice if professors began to encourage their students to hand in papers and projects printed on both sides of the page. This would essentially cut the amount of paper students use in half and is a relatively easy and small change that could have a potentially large impact if implemented across campus. To take it a step further, professors could take the same approach when printing tests and syllabuses and reduce the amount of waste even more. Another point of wastefulness is campus maintenance. Any student would be hard-pressed to find a day on campus when someone is not utilizing a leaf blower to keep the UF grounds aesthetically pleasing. This is a concentrated waste of energy and resources. Random trees and bricked landscape areas also seem to appear overnight. We certainly enjoy having a pretty place to walk to class that is filled with lush trees and plants, but we don't understand why so much energy is expended on maintaining the green vegetation and lawns. The vast expanse of St. Augustine grass is not sustainable -it requires regular watering in the heat, doesn't produce seed and must be treated with herbicides and pesticides. It would make more sense to seed grass or maybe just make peace with the stubborn dandelions. Little changes, such as presenting an information booklet to incoming freshmen about living green on campus, increasing the number of recycling bins, not running the escalators at Library West all night and keeping every building on campus at a steady 75 degrees could go a long way to keep with the university's green efforts and encourage student participation all year round. the independent florida alligator Chad Smith EDITOR Devin Cuiclasure MANAGING EDITOR Panagiota Papakos OPINIONS EDITOR Don Kershaw Leigh Shapiro EDITORIAL BOARD The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinion After students accepted the small equipment-use fee, the administration quickly took the next logical cost-cutting step: n1~ j .C 1I to K 10 A P 0\ 1 0@.e Column Compassion needed to overcome past ature takes wood in one of two ways: either fire burns it or water rots it away. If that wood forms the walls of a building, the way it happens can make all the difference in the world. So it is with the Cotton Club here in Gainesville. Don't feel bad if you've never heard of it -neither had I until recently. The Cotton Club was the name of an old one-room hall in the 1950s that now sits falling apart on Southeast Seventh Avenue. Originally built at Camp Blanding in Starke as a military post warehouse, it was sold, taken apart and moved boardfor-board to Gainesville after the war in 1946. Five years later, the room that once housed mail was filled with jazz music. The Cotton Club joined what came to be called the Chitlin' Circuit, a group of venues black musicians could play at as racist segregation raged. It hosted greats like James Brown, B.B. King and Brook Benton. It was very successful, but the city refused to renew its license -too many impressionable white UF students were going there. By 1953, the music had stopped. Well, 55 years later, a movement was created to restore the Cotton Club to the way it looked in its heyday. But if you think the entire black community in the neighborhood around it is a fan of the idea, think again. A friend of mine who volunteers with the Powell Center for Sustainability had a conversation with an African American local during his site survey. With great respect, he let my friend know that he and most of the black community he knew would prefer to see the building burned down. To avoid misinterpretation, he was not speaking literally. He just meant that he didn't want to preserve a painful reminder from a time when poor black citizens' deaths did not even warrant acknowledgement in The Gainesville Sun's obituaries. I disagree with him, but can I blame him? Of course not. This is where painful history really does toy with us. There is no universal way to grieve. One girl needs to destroy every memento from a relationship after a devastatGerald Liles ing break up. Another girl can listen etteroamgato.org to 'their song' on the mix CD the exboyfriend -made for her without it causing any pain at all. I have yet to detect any common rhyme or reason in coping with sorrow, and from what I can tell, neither have psychologists. I should point out that the random pedestrian my friend spoke to was ultimately speaking for himself -he may have been misrepresenting the sentiment of the majority of the neighborhood. Even if that were the case though, I still can't deem his feelings illegitimate. The problem is still there. So what should be done with the Cotton Club? Honestly, I don't think there is a "should" there. The question is what will we do? Pain, like wood, always goes away with some combination of fire and water: anger and tears. There is no moral dimension there. dI the hall where James Brown clutched his heart and then motioned as if dealing it out like poker cards is made into a museum, for some it will be an ugly reminder of a dark past made permanent. If the building is demolished, many will feel an important reminder of a rich history will be lost, and they will be upset. Whatever the scenario, each side needs to extend compassion to the other. This is the case where sympathy must eclipse misunderstanding. As Mr. Brown bellowed melodically, "Please, please, please!" Gerald Liles is a history and religion senior.

TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 2008 .ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Column on pope was ignorant I was disappointed, but not surprised, by Vincent Massaro's column Monday about the pope's U.S. visit. It confirmed what many people know but do not want to admit: Anti-Catholic speech is one of the remaining acceptable forms of discrimination in America today. The title would have readers believe that Mr. Massaro has reasonable concern over the exorbitant reception of Pope Benedict XVI in our country. However, if you read his column, you would have been treated to an incoherent and ignorant diatribe against not only the pope but the Roman Catholic Church and all Catholics of good faith. Not only was his indictment of the pope based mainly on the actions of others (CNN commentators, spectators, etc.), but Massaro also tastelessly reduced the Catholic liturgy to a "shindig" or a "boring" sporting event. If there is any redeeming value to be found in Monday's column, it is at the end, when he suggests that the Church should do more to help the poor. However, this attempt at compassion can hardly be taken seriously amidst such a shameless display of unwarranted disdain, disrespect, and, quite frankly, bigotry. Mark LaBelle 2FA Other issues surround pope visit Despite all of the different views that could have been discussed regarding the pope's visit, Mr. Massaro chose to babble aimlessly instead. There were so many issues deserving attention, and yet all Mr. Massaro could seem to focus on was the pope's bling. I couldn't care less about the pope as a religious or political figure. However, the space Mr. Massaro is afforded could have been put to valuable use for the discussion of a myriad of philosophical issues surrounding the pope's visit. For example: What association, if any, is appropriate for a sitting president to have with a religious leader? Should the pope's own beliefs implore him to hock his bling to feed a few hungry mouths? What is the pope's responsibility to molestation victims of American priests? Surely any of these questions would have been a more effective use of column inches than the inane ramblings that I can only assume were a half-hearted attempt at humor. I've come to expect more from such a distinguished paper. Rob Myers Gainesville resident Guest Column Unrealistic cultural expectations of beauty unfair to women ou've seen them at the Plaza of the Americas: Student Governmentsponsored billboards, in an effort to boost self-esteem, encouraging women to love their bodies, claiming that "diets don't work" and assuring everyone that confident women who don't worry about looking like supermodels are sexier than those who do. Self-esteem and confidence are wonderful to have, but they don't tell the whole story. The truth is, regardless of how we feel about ourselves, women are judged for our appearances, and we face material and social consequences if we don't conform to the culturally accepted standard of beauty A 2004 study by the Bureau of Labor Statistics confirmed this: Overweight and obese white women get paid less than their thinner counterparts, while white men don't face the same discrimination. No amount of self-confidence in the world will make up for getting paid less for doing the same work. For women, maintaining our appearance to fit into a standard of beauty is like another job. It requires time spent on hair care, putting on makeup and shopping for and picking out the right clothes -and sometimes, these beauty rituals can be downright painful (bikini waxes, anyone?). Beauty standards are often based on classist and racist ideas; in other times, heavier women were preferred because it indicated that one had access to adequate food. Now, thin and tan are the standards because they indicate access to money and time for expensive health foods and gym memberships. If you're thin, Campus NOW however, it doesn't Speaking Out end there. Women still face pressure to have a full bust and "curves." Regardless of what kind of bodies we have, women still face pressure to conform to an impossible standard few can achieve without surgery or airbrushing. The pursuit of beauty is endless for women; cosmetics is a multi-million dollar industry, and these corporations know that playing to an audience of women who face discrimination based on their looks will help them move products. Sexism in our society helps these industries grow into what they are today. The problem with self-esteem campaigns is that they treat women's insecurities about their looks as individual problems, when in reality it's a collective problem oppressing women as a whole. -An individual woman can choose not to wear makeup or worry about her weight and have all the self-confidence in the world, but self-confidence won't stop her from facing discrimination in the workplace or from her family. There's nothing wrong with working out and eating healthily or enjoying shopping and wearing makeup. What is wrong is the expectation that women do these things, and that we face material and social consequences if we don't conform. To explore these issues further, join UF Campus NOW tonight at 8 p.m. at the Civic Media Center for a screening of the film Killing Us Softly 3 and a discussion of beauty standards afterward.

8, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 2008 Two Worlds Together Local boy learning to cope with autism in world around him < Even though he sees things differently, Tyler Johnson, 9, is not lost in his own world. Diagnosed with high-functioning autism, Tyler loves to socialize with others and excels in his areas of interest. A main component of autism is obsessions or preoccupations with particular objects. Tyler is fascinated with shopping carts and spends a lot of time at the supermarket selecting the "perfect cart." He is very smart and remembers details that many others forget. He loves cars and enjoys drawing. He has no problem understanding math and science, but because of his autism, language processing skills are weaker and social interactions are a challenge Tyler gets along well with his family and makes friends pretty easily. He is home-schooled by his mother at their home in Southwest Gainesville and attends several types of therapy. Although every day is a struggle, Tyler's mother says he's making improvements interacting with the world around him. -PHOTOS AND TEXT BY MARIANNE LIJEWSKI TOP: While his grandmother and twin brother, Corey, play basketball behind him, Tyler draws on th e driveway. Even though Tyler is a social child, there are times he prefers to do his own activities. LEFT: While shopping at Publix, Tyler searches for the perfect Pop-Tarts, which is one of his favorite breakfast foods. He got the nametag from his sister, Linzy, who is an employee there.

Even though Tyler likes socializing with other children, he is troubled by the speed ot the playground carousel at Littlewood Elementary School. When he is able to control the speed of the carousel, he feels at ease.

TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 9 CITY COMMISSION City moves forward with one-stop center 04 City commissioners voted 5-2 at a special meeting Monday night to change the land-use designation for the location of a proposed one-stop homeless center at 3335 N Main Terrace. At the same meeting, they voted to wait four to six months before beginning to lease the building that would serve as the center's facility. The proposed site has met controversy as residents of nearby communities have opposed the location. "It just doesn't do us justice as a community to continue this failure to act," Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan said at the meeting. The site, which was selected in March 2007, will offer services including meals, counseling, showers and laundry facilities. Commissioners Rick Bryant and Ed Braddy opposed the motion. "I can't think of any location that doesn't work as much as this one," Bryant said. "It just doesn't do us justice as a community to continue this failure to act." Pegeen Hanrahan Gainesville mayor Commissioners have looked into alternative sites for the center. They said Monday that one of the options, located on Northwest 53rd Avenue, was no longer available. -KATIE GALLAGHER Harrison uiamonti / Aiigator Starr Gainesville City Commissioner Ed Braddy speaks about the one-stop homeless center at Monday night's City Commission meeting at City Hall. Proposed campus memorial would honor local vets E MEMORIAL WOULD HONOR POSTWORLD WAR 11 VETERANS. By JOEL MORA Alligator Contributing Writer As the United States enters the sixth year of the war in Iraq, a UF organization wants to install a memorial for local veterans who have served the country in the past 63 years. The Collegiate Veterans Society wants to place a memorial in the Reitz Union Amphitheater recognizing all UF and Gainesville veterans but will focus on postWorld War II veterans, said Daniel Wojcik, the organization's president. Wojcik said modem veterans aren't recognized on campus as the only two veterans memorials on campus -Ben Hill Griffin Stadium and Century Tower -are dedicated to those who served in World War I and World War II. "Our goal is not to make any political statement," he said. "We just want to recognize the sacrifice and work that University of Florida Gators have made overseas." The organization still needs to present the memorial plans to various university committees to have it approved. Eddie Daniels, the Reitz Union's executive director, said a lot questions about the project still need to be answered. "A lot of things need to be worked out," Daniels said. "How do you identify persons that will be recognized? There are a number of logistical questions that need to be answered." Because this project is unique, there is no certain path to its approval, he said. A campus master-plan committee has to look at the plans, and a number of other officials must review the project, including the vice president of student affairs, before it is approved, he said. Wojcik said the memorial plans include five pillars, two flagpoles and a floating fountain in the pond. The flags and pillars would be installed in front of the rail that surrounds the pond, and a floating fountain would shoot out a plume of water and have orange-and-blue lights. Billy Brame, president of Brame Architects, has decided to do the project proposal for the memorial for free. For Brame, the memorial will not only be dedicated to his service in the Navy from 1969 to 1975 but also to the service of his stepson, Jeffrey M. Wershow, who was killed in Baghdad in July 2003. "I think the memorial fountain will help people understand the sacrifices veterans make, and it will be a physical manifestation of that," Brame said. The organization estimated the cost of the memorial will be between $60,000 and $80,000, but that isn't definite because it is not sure if it will receive more donations, he said. Once the project proposal is completed, the organization will go before the UF Student Senate and request funds to help pay for the project. "We want to increase the beauty and usability of that area on campus and hope to leave it nicer than we found it," he said.

10, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 2008 Recent poll predicts Clinton win in Pennsylvania Unclear how much new fee would raise FEE, from page 1 "It's something we're going to see more of," Machen said. "I'm no longer going to sit around and wait for the state." Machen said he predicts UF will have to cut about $50 million from its budget next year. The exact amount will be released at the end of the state Legislature's spring session. UF has already begun to enact similar student charges not covered by tuition. UF implemented a transcript fee Machen this semester, charging $6 per transcript for current students and $12 for students who are no longer registered at UF Machen said that fee should generate up to $1 million every year. Because the specific amounts of equipment fees depend on each college's proposals, it is not yet known how much money they will bring in. PRIMARY, from page 1 A poll conducted Monday by Quinnipiac University found Clinton leading Obama 51 percent to 44 percent with a three-point margin of error. For Obama, Heaney said, a loss to Clinton could undermine the lead he has established so far. For Clinton, a win is necessary to maintain a reasonable hope of winning the Democratic nomination. In the face of necessity, both of the candidates have turned to more negative campaigning, Heaney said. While the ads seldom convince voters to favor candidates, he said, they can be successful in convincing them to second guess an on-thefence decision. The negative ads can also be attributed to the candidates' similar political stances, said Daniel Smith, a UF political science associate professor. These have led them to create ads that attack each other based on personal rather than policy issues. Candidates have also taken advantage of each other's recent blunders, Smith said. For example, while Clinton took advantage of Obama's comment about citizens of small towns, Obama capitalized on Clinton's unfounded statement that snipers attacked her when she was in Bosnia in the 1990s. "it's not personal attacks. It's records on what they have said." Zachary Moller UF College Democrats president "Both have made the most out of those gaffes," Smith said. "It's easy pickings." While in some sense, he said, Republicans should be pleased to watch the Democratic candidates criticize each other, Democrats might ultimately be doing each other a favor.

John McCain will seem like he is bringing up old issues if he attacks his opponent for shortcomings that have already been exposed. Zachary Moller, president of UF's College Democrats, said he didn't find the ads offensive enough to turn him off to either candidate. "It's not personal attacks. It's records on what they have said," Moller said. "This is a campaign. Stuff like this is going to happen in the fall." But he did say he'd prefer it if the Democratic candidates would attack McCain instead of each other. "I think that would be more productive, but I'm not running their campaigns," he said. Though some have said the attack ads could drive Democratic supporters to vote for McCain, Smith said he didn't think it would happen.

Nobody works harder than Nick, and nobody has worked more unselfishly to help make the sports section something to be proud of. There is no doubt in my mind that he is the best college sportswriter in the country. Please make sure you check out his farewell -column in Wednesday's paper. But most importantly, I would like to thank the readers. There isn't much glory in this job. You'd be surprised how many times I have watched someone read my column in the paper with my picture right next to it and not even realize it was me. But what was most important to me was that a story I wrote may have answered someone's questions, made someone chuckle, or best of all, made someone think. I hope that at some point during the last few years I have been able to make your afternoon bus ride or Man's Food lecture just a little bit more enjoyable.

Sports TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 2008 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org 2008 BEIJING SUMMER GAMES Lochte hopes Gainesville training yields Olympic glory By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Staff Writer nzaccardi@alligator.org Bad luck first struck Ryan Lochte on June 30, 1985. That was the day Michael Phelps was born. Lochte was a month shy of his first birthday in New York when Phelps was delivered in Baltimore, Md. It's not known how long it took Phelps to crawl or walk, but he quickly caught Lochte, passed him and left him in his wake on the international swimming scene. At any other time in the history of the sport, Lochte would be looked at as the biggest fish. But not now, not when Phelps is busy breaking records that Lochte would have held, wearing medals Lochte could have owned and appearing on magazine covers Lochte should have graced. Tough luck. Hoping to change his fortune, Lochte has returned to UF to train with the Gators swimming team and its coach, Gregg Troy, for the Beijing Olympics. In Lochte's typically laidback, mellowed-out manner, he described what it's like to be at school, but not in school. "If I want to take a nap, I can take a nap," said Lochte, who is an internship away from graduating with a degree in sports management. Phelps is more of the competitive sort. When Ian Crocker handed Phelps his only loss at the 2003 World Championships, Phelps reportedly pinned a photo of Crocker in his room as motivation and beat Crocker a year later in the Olympics. "They're the No. 1 and No. 2 best swimmers in the world in a multitude of events." Steve Lochte Ryan Lochte's father Phelps is ranked among the top three swimmers in the world in six of the 13 individual Olympic events. He won a record eight medals at the 2004 Athens Olympics. Lochte, 23, is starting to make waves, too. He joined Phelps in Athens and flew back to Gainesville with a substantially lighter medal haul -one gold, one silver -but still a great reward for his first Olympic experience. Since then, he has closed in on his good friend Phelps and now has him in his sights heading into the Beijing Olympics, which begin on Aug. 8. Lochte is the only swimmer in the world who can hang with Phelps in the individual medley events, the best tests of swimming because they include all four strokes: butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle. "Sure, they're rivals," said Lochte's father and, longtime coach, Steve. "They're the No. 1 and No. 2 best swimmers in the world in a multitude of events. It's healthy competition. Bottom line is Ryan would love to continue to excel and become better." It's not like Lochte has Phelps' mug shot fitted into the side of his bathroom mirror. But the thoughts must beffiere, maybe even in his dreams. I've got to swim faster than Michael. I've got to be better than Michael. I've got to beat Michael. SEE LOCHTE, PAGE 22 Casey Brooke Lawson / Alligator. Former UF swimmer Ryan Lochte comes up for air while he swims the breaststroke during one of his practice sessions with the UF swimming team as part of his preparation for the 2008 Olympics. Lochte returned to Gainesville to train with coach Gregg Troy and practices with the UF swimming team daily. Columnist recalls past successes, failures along storied UF journey I've dreaded writing this column for a while now. No, not just because I'm incredibly lazy, but because saying goodbye is something that has always been difficult for me. My Alligator career did not have the storybook ending I envisioned when I ventured into the paper's open house more than three years ago without clips, experience or a clue of what I was getting myself into. In fact, it appears that my experiment with sportswriting may be coming to an end. I don't question that I have the ability to do this for a living, but I do question whether I have the passion for this job to do it for the rest of my life. -But working for the Alligator has been something I will always remember and always treasure. ENBA Playoffs: Toronto vs. Orlando SUN, 7:30 p.m. Phoenix vs. San Antonio TNT, 9:30 p.m. I've accomplished quite a bit over the past several years. I've filled the role of reporter, columnist, editor, assistant editor and online editor for the sports department and covered everything from sports clubs to volleyball and baseball to football and men's basketball. I've traveled to sporting events all across the southeast and covered the BCS National Championship Game in Arizona. I've had articles published in newspapers and Web sites across the country, and I even got the chance to be interviewed on radio stations throughout the nation. And I've somehow managed to piss off a lot of people along the way. I'll never forget the massive amount of hate mail I've received. I've been called just about every name you can imagine, and some of them Bryan Jones Bryan Out Loud bjones@alligator.org aren't even true. I have also been fortunate .enough to cover a national championship football team from spring practice all the way through the trophy presentation, and I covered bits and pieces of a national championship basketball team. Getting a chance to document something like that is a sportswriter's dream, and I am thankful I got that opportunity. I'll try to avoid turning this into something that resembles a lame Oscar speech, but there are some people I have to thank for helping me along the way. A big Bryan Out Loud thanks to Andrew NBA Playoffs: 1. UF 21-1 Washington 86 2. Alabama 23-2 Cleveland 116 3. Tennessee 13-8 MLB: 4. LSU 12-10 Florida 10 5. Mississippi St. 11-11 Pittsburgh 4 6. Auburn 10-11 Abramson for giving me a chance when nobody else would and for believing in me and doing everything in his power to help me succeed. I'd also like to thank Louis Anastasis for giving me an opportunity to work alongside him during a hectic 2006 fall semester and showing me the ropes. You've been a good friend to me even if I don't agree with anything you say. Jenna Marina and Brian Steele, thanks for always being people I could rely on when I needed help. I regret having had so many messes for you guys to clean up, but I'll never forget how unselfish you have been. Watch out for Mike McCall someday He is a rock star. 'Nuff said.

22, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 2008 Lochte, Phelps will face off in June's long-anticipated Olympic trials LOCHTE, from page 21 Then BEEEEEPPPPPP!!! The alarm blares at 5 in the morning. .Beating Phelps means Lochte must be up before the sun. As he rises, Lochte is quickly reminded of what he must improve upon from his experience at the 2004 lympics. "Don't eat McDonald's every day for seven straight days," said Lochte, who arrived in Athens at 181 pounds and left at 194 thanks to frequent trips to the fast-food chain in the athletes' village. So he rips dfpen a granola bar, grabs some fruit, guzzles some orange juice and jets off to practice from 6 to 8:30 with younger swimmers who see Lochte as a role model. "You're able to put a face on the goal, to see what good swminng is," said UF sophomore Clark Burckle, who lives with Ryan in an off-campus house. "I think he makes everybody step it up more because they all see what he's achieved and they want to do that, too, so it just makes the team better as a whole." Lochte dries himself off, drinks a shake and lifts weights for another 90 minutes. After a long morning's work, he drives his 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe back home, looking to see the one who loves him no matter what. His Doberman pinscher, Carter, waits for breakfast ,while Lochte feeds himself eggs, pancakes or waffles before taking a nap. Practice starts again at 1 p.m. All this for the Olympics? "It's a great honor to swim for my country, but I don't really think about (Beijing)," said Lochte, who in his free time Phelps draws abstracts, like rain drops falling up from the ground into the sky. "I treat every swim meet the same as every dual meet (in college). I've been doing it for so long." Lochte has less than four months to get into Olympic shape. He struggled mightily in his first big meet of 2008, the Missouri Grand Prix in February, sliding to sixth in two backstroke events including one he holds the world record in -and finishing out of the top 10 in four other races. By contrast, Phelps won four of his seven events. But Lochte came back strong at the short-course world championships two weeks ago. He set four world records and won the 100and 200-meter individual medleys without Phelps in the field. Lochte and Phelps will go head to head again. in June at the Olympic trials in the most anticipated non-Olympic or non-World Championship meet in recent history. "It's every bit as challenging to make the U.S. team as it is to get a medal at the Olympics," Troy said. "Everyone who takes it for granted is making a mistake." Lochte will text message Phelps from time to time, but swimming won't come up. Instead, they banter about their favorite rappers. Lochte favors Lil' Wayne. "'It's tight.' That's about all that is said between us," Lochte said. Like Phelps, Lochte lets his results and his endorsements do more talking for him. Lochte made sure he would be remembered upon winning the 200-meter individual medley at the 2007 World Championships. After receiving his gold medal and standing for the national anthem, Lochte smiled and.revealed a sparkling silver, diamond-encrusted grill, a mold that fits over teeth, after being dared by his roommate, fellow swimmer Cullen Jones. "It got to the point where I was like, 'If I get a medal at this point, I'll wear them on the podium.' They were like, 'No you won't. No you won't,"' Lochte said. "Everyone was in shock that I did that." That included Troy. "I wasn't wild about the idea," he admitted, "but it was done tastefully." Casey Brooke Lawson / Alligator Lochte, wearing a white swimming cap, and his former UF teammates prepare to begin a morning strength drill in the O'Connell Center pool. Lochte hopes to compete in this summer's Olympics. Speedo pays the bills for Lochte, who swims in the company's sleek LZR Racer suit. Lochte also recently did a "Got Milk?" ad and flew to New York for a "Today" Show appearance where Matt Lauer mispronounced his last name. All the attention is partially due to his perceived rivalry with Phelps. But for Lochte (pronounced Lock-tee), it's much more than that. "Even if I do beat him, I guess I still won't be satisfied with swimming," said Lochte, who already has plans for the 2012 Olympics in London. "I set my goals that way. I won't be satisfied until I stop making goals." rNEED~A STORAGE UNIT FAST? $20 OFF Contact.

24, ALLIGATOR S TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 2008 7 Freshman struggles in SEC play Harrison Liamona / Aigator taT UF freshman Stephanie Brombacher hurls a pitch during the Gators' 2-0 win against LSU at Pressly Stadium on March 29. E UF HOSTS JACKSONVILLE IN A DOUBLEHEADER TODAY. By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Writer kmaistri alligator.org It took a little bit longer than expected, but the preseason prediction made by UF coach Tim Walton has finally come true. "She's going to struggle," he said of the expectations surrounding freshman pitcher Stephanie Bromhacher. "She's going to get hit. "She's going to give up some home runs." Through the non-conference schedule, and at times in conference play, it looked as though he might be wrong about the freshman sensation. It seemed as if she could be dominant without paying any dues. Brombacher carried an ERA of close to 1, along with an undefeated record, into the rough Southeastern Conference slate. As No. 3 UF (51-2, 21-1 SEC) prepares to host Jacksonville (2137, 5-17 Atlantic Sun) in a doubleheader Tuesday, her undefeated record is still intact (16-0), but the freshman has looked more hittable than ever lately.
