UF ADMINISTRATION

UF will lay off employees to cope with cuts


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org
As the UF community braces for the an-
nouncement of long-anticipated budget cuts,
officials have confirmed that despite UF's ef-
forts, some faculty and staff won't have jobs at
the university next year.
The number of faculty and staff that will
be laid off is still undecided, said UF President
Bernie Machen in a Thursday interview with
Alligator reporters. "Its pretty dear this will
involve people," Machen said. "I think it's re-
alistic for you to say there will be layoffs."
UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said
Tuesday that though warnings of possible lay-
offs have been posted on a UF budget-reduc-
tion Web site, layoffs would be "impossible to
avoid."


"We anticipate layoffs from every spec-
trum: from maintenance up to tenured fac-
ulty," she said.
Kyle Cavanaugh, UF's senior vice presi-
dent for administration, said virtually all strat-
egies for dealing with budget cuts are being
explored, but eliminating tenured faculty is
not yet one of them.
Machen said he plans to announce UF's
budget cuts in early May after the state
Legislature finishes its session and finalizes
the overall state budget picture. Each college is
already preparing for at least a 6 percent bud-
get cut. Decisions about layoffs will be made at
the college level.
He said the first wave of layoffs would
eliminate vacant teaching positions. In an-
ticipation of cuts, some colleges have left these
positions unfilled. He said his No. 1 priority
is to protect tenured faculty and those on the


tenure-track when considering the cuts.
But Sikes said if tenured professors are
involved in nixed programs, they too will lose
their jobs.
"If programs are elimi-
nated, there's no way to
keep all the faculty,"
Sikes said. "We just don't
know what's being cut."
In January, before the
Legislature indicated that
UF should expect cuts of
$50 million deeper than
Machen previously anticipated, UF
spokesman Steve Orlando said UF leaders
did not have plans for losing faculty members.
But that hope dimmed as the budget picture
became bleaker.
"We didn't know what the picture for the
rest of the fiscal year was going to be like," he


said. "And it's gotten worse."
Aside from the direct effects of laying off
professors, Machen said Thursday that he's
also worried many faculty members will sim-
ply leave UF out of fear to go to schools faring
better economically, a move that would affect
the quality of UF's education.
"If we can't tell a faculty member that they
aren't going to get a raise in the next three
years, that's a negative," he said. "That's the
only part of this quality equation that I can't
guarantee right now."
He said he hopes first- and second-year
faculty don't become discouraged by the
bleak budgetary outlook. They should con-
tinue to plan for earning tenure at UF, he said.
If they end up leaving because there fearful
of layoffs, they'll have to restart the tenure pro-
cess at another institution. "My advice to them
would be to stick it out," he said.


Moseley met


all but one


platform goal

* UF STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT WILL LEAVE
.OFFICE ON MAY 1.

By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

Wearing a Gator Party T-shirt and khaki shorts, Ryan
Moseley sat calmly on his couch with about a week left
in his Reitz Union office.
During his year-long tenure, the UF Student Body
president has hit all but one of the
Student 22 promises on his platform. The
Government one that got away? Minus grades.
While Moseley. advocated that
minus grades would be bad for UF, they were approved
by UF's Faculty Senate and will be a part of the grading
system starting Spring 2009.
But he said-he feels good about what he has done
during his term and about completing other projects
not included in his original platform, which focused on
"tangible benefits."
A completed goal some students are making use of
this week is extended library hours during final exams.
Moseley said it has been one of the most successful

Hunger strikers call it quits in light of looming exams


By STEPHANIE ROSENBERG
and KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writers

Let them eat cookies.
The student protesters who had
been on a hunger strike for more
than a week said they would call
off the fast even though they were
never granted a meeting over lunch
with UF President Machen to dis-
cuss socially responsible investing.
"Because of our commit-
ment to this school and
our commitment to our
own grades, we're going to
have to cancel the strike."
Skeet Surrency
SDS member

The protesters, mostly members
of Students for a Democratic Society,
made the announcement at a news
conference Tuesday afternoon
outside Tigert Hall before nibbling
vegan oatmeal-raisin cookies. Many
strikers had already dropped out of
the effort after fainting, and loom-
ing exams would make the fast too
difficult for other participants to
continue, protesters said.
The strike was part of an effort by
SDS members to urge UF to make its
investments transparent. The group
wants to make sure UF is not invest-
ing in any socially irresponsible
companies, such as those that sup-


port the war in Iraq or further global
warming. Though Machen did not
meet with them to discuss their con-
cerns during this particular protest,
he has met with them on several
other occasions, said Steve Orlando,
UF spokesman.
But so far, UF's investment
policy, currently overseen by the
nonprofit UF Investment Corp., has
remained unchanged.
Orlando said it would be difficult
to release details of each company
UF invests in because they change
so frequently. In addition, if UF
released its investment strategies,
others might invest the same way,
decreasing UF's profits.
Recently, SDS has expanded its
protest efforts beyond university
grounds. Orlando said he's heard
that at least one member of the
group showed up at Machen's
house one night between the hours
of 10 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. demand-
ing answers. Members of the group
have also made calls to Dianna
Morgan, chairwoman of UF's Board
of Trustees, that Orlando called "ha-
rassing in nature."
At the Tuesday conference,
SDS members displayed a blown-
up version of the 2008 College
Sustainability Report Card from the
Sustainable Endowments Institute,
a nonprofit organization that aims
to advance sustainable practices on
campuses nationwide. UF received
a B-minus overall, and got F's in the
categories for endowment transpar-
ency and shareholder engagement.


"We think that these grades
are wholly unacceptable for this
university," said Skeet Surrency, an
SDS member. "Because of our com-
mitment to this school and our com-
mitment to our own grades, we're
going to have to cancel the strike."


Surrency and four other students
took the card to Machen's secretary,
leaving handwritten notes behind,
too. One read, "Thanks for meet-
ing with the students, Dr. Machen.
Absolutely everything is perfect."
Michael Marks, one of the pro-


testers, said he was disappointed in
how the strike fared and Machen's
lack of response.
"I starved for 10 days, but I
would've done it for 30," Marks
said. "If I kill myself, what good is
that going to do?"

UF ADMINISTRATION

Taser committee delivers final recommendations


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org
On Tuesday, UF President Bernie Machen
accepted the recommendations from a com-
mittee created after University Police officers
Tasered a UF student at a campus speech.
The Ad Hoc Committee on a Civil, Safe
and Open Environment issued its 52-page fi-
nal report after six months of research about
how to balance campus safety with First
Amendment rights.
The committee recommended that UF


develop a Web site with training materials
on free-speech issues and draft a statement
about the value of free speech at UE.
In addition to these materials, the com-
mittee wrote that UPD should receive
extra training about how to protect First
Amendment rights while ensuring security
at campus events.
"We believe public universities such as
the University of Florida play a special role
in encouraging the exercise of speech rights
protected by principles of academic freedom
and responsibility as well as by the First


Amendment to the U.S. Constitution," the
report stated.


Meyer


The committee found
that UPD's revised policy
-on Taser use was accept-
able and more conservative
than state law requires.
Kim Tanzer, committee
chairwoman, could not be
reached for comment by
press time.


In a letter to the committee, Machen
specifically commended the group for rec-


ognizing the efforts by UPD and Accent,
UF's Student Government speaker's bureau,
to revise their policies and for suggesting
that UPD provide annual reports of its use
of force incidents on its Web site and to the
Faculty Senate.
UPD currently offers these reports to the
Student Senate.
"The committee's report reflects a
thorough and thoughtful review of many
complex issues and different perspectives
involved in appropriately balancing safety
and openness," Machen wrote.


Congratulations,

Kim Wilmath!
The Alligator would like to congratulate Kim Wilmath for her
second-place finish in the Spot News Writing Competition
of the 48th annual Hearst Journalism Awards Program.
Wilmath, a journalism junior, worked on the graphics staff
during the 2006-2007
academic year, reported
on the UF administration
during the summer and
fall of 2007 and currently
serves as university editor.

Wilmath took second for her
initial coverage of University
Police Department
officers' use of a Taser

lWakeskating gains popularity


I /Wakeskating gains popularity


Out on the water, a new board is catch-
ing on and catching some air.
A recent trend in extreme sports is
wakeskating, and more specifically, a
type of wakeskating called "winchskat-
ing," which combines wakeboarding and
skateboarding.
In winchskating, the rider stands on a
board without being strapped in and does
tricks on the water like on a skateboard.
Winchskating is when riders aren't pulled
by a jet ski or boat, but by a winch.
This is a motor attached to gears and
spools that pulls in a rope at a quick


enough speed to tow a rider.
The sport is only 10 years old, with the
first contest held in 1998, but it's growing
rapidly.
Organizations in Europe and Australia
have been holding competitions since
2005.
One advantage to wakeskating is that
younger people can get involved because
it is cheaper than wakeboarding.
Riders can use a winch or jet ski to
pull them, rather than an expensive wake
boat.

Editorial
Well, it's finally here. Our calendars may say it's
Wednesday, but right about now it sure feels like
a Friday. This being the last issue of the spring
semester and the last day of classes though everyone
seems to be too busy headed to the library for "exams"
and "term papers" we've decided to lighten it up a bit.
C'mon, you know you're not really going to use both of
those reading days, anyway. So grab a lounge chair by
the pool, pop open a cold one and start thinking about
summer. It's with bittersweet nostalgia that we here at the
Darts & Laurels department compose our semester-ending
edition of....



Darts & Laurels
It seemed that no edition of Darts and Laurels this
spring was complete without some variation of a we-
can't-believe-they-were-actually-voted-into-office DART
going to the Florida Legislature. Whether it was state Sen.
Mike Haridopolos embellishing some of his qualifications
to be hired in a questionable move at UF or the majority
of the state Senate voting for a constitutional amendment
that would do away with the Board of Governors, we can't
say that the Legislature has served Florida's students well.
The state education system seems to be moving backward
instead of forward, especially since it appears that we will
soon have an elected education commissioner.
So when our politicians weren't busy arguing about
pressing issues, like the legality of truck accessories that
resemble male reproductive organs or the semantics of
teaching evolution, the state of higher education contin-
ued to face a situation that feels a lot like standing on the
edge of a very steep cliff -without a safety net.
In keeping with government disappointments, a
clearly-you-have-no-idea-or-just-don't-care-about-what-
students-want DART goes to Student Government. Not
only did the SG-appointed UF Supreme Court decide that
an online voting system would be unconstitutional this
semester even though a majority of students expressed
a desire for the change, SG also wasted time passing
meaningless resolutions and arguing over petty election
violations. Despite student concerns over voter coercion
at fraternity and sorority houses using "I voted" stickers,
many in SG continue to defend the decision to not allow
online voting. And it goes without saying that allowing a
senator with questionable addresses on various forms to
continue to represent a district goes beyond the realm of
incompetence.
That's not to say that every thing SG did was complete-
ly useless. We hand out a good-job-and-good-luck making
some tangible improvements for the Student Body and
the UF community as a whole. These included instituting
Global Positioning Systems on Regional Transit System
buses by February, extending the hours of Library West
during final exams, adding more recycling bins on campus
and approving legislation from the Student Senate to cre-
ate a graduate student bill of rights.
And finally, after the Pennsylvania primary, the kick-off
to primary season seems like eons ago since we're already
feeling the effects of election fatigue: pure apathy. So we
have no choice but to issue a last what-happened-to-prom-
ises-of-unity-and-hope DART to the Democratic Party for
perpetuating one of the most divisive primary races in re-
cent memory. Whether it was Clinton's 3 a.m. commercial
or the continuous reel of Obama's pastor making contro-
versial statements, there's one thing we do know: whom-
ever the nominee happens to be, we're over it already.

Alligator Ed Barber, former Washington Post Publisher
Philip Graham and renowned columnist Carl Hiaasen line
the walls. They all worked at this newspaper, in its various
forms, and helped build it up to what it is today. And if I ever
make it, I think it would mean more to me than making it
into Cooperstown meant for Goose Gossage.
And my induction speech, if they even give those for the
Alligator's Hall, would be a little bit like the paragraphs to
follow.
There have been a number of people who have helped
me to get where I am right now writing this column in the
editor's office of the Alligator, with framed editions about
Danny Rolling's reign of horror and a loudmouth getting
Tasered hanging above me.
First, I would like to thank the numerous superiors and
colleagues here who have helped me frame a sense of pur-
pose with my chosen field. This place burs a lot of people
out: Many come in with dreams of becoming reporters at the
biggest papers in the country; a good number of them end up
going to law school.
But the people who I have become dose with during my
time here have solidified my love for this business. It's reas-
suring to know that journalism, in whatever medium, will be
done by some of the brightest people I know.
Of course, I'd be remiss without mentioning a few of the
journalism professors who have also inspired me namely
professors Mike Foley, Diana Schuh and Norm Lewis (and


v several others I don't have the space
to name). It's really easy to be afraid
of working for a daily newspaper in
2008, which I'll be doing now that
my time is up at the Alligator. But
those faculty members have kept
Chad Smith me motivated.
iga.g The most important reason,
ietters@alligator.org however, for whatever success I've
had (if you can call it that) is the
Alligator itself. Most of you have probably never been in our
newsroom. Its not exactly an inspiring building. The pan-
eled walls make this place feel like a cave. Finding a chair
that is comfortable enough to sit in isn't easy, and if you sit on
the desk of one cubicle, its most likely going to collapse.
But there is something about the newsroom when journal-
ists are discussing a big story that just came in. I wasn't work-
ing during the Taser incident, though then-editor Lyndsey
Lewis told me it was chaotic. But that's what we're in this
for. The combination of deadlines and big stories can feel like
you're being forced to cut the green wire or the red wire. Cut
the wrong one, and the story explodes in your face.
To use an industry term, I guess I kind of buried the lede
here. My point is that if you have any desires of being a jour-
nalist, do everything you can to work at the Alligator. The
things you do here and the people you work with will stay
with you forever.
You might walk in here for your first time, like I did, to
meet with an editor to pitch a story. Becoming a staff writer at
that point might still be a dream. An editor? Out of the ques-
tion. THE editor? Impossible.
But keep at it. If you would have told me I would be writ-
ing this column less than two years after I had my first story
published, I would not have believed you.
Now my short few months at the helm have already come
and gone. On to the next goal: the Hall of Fame.

Barbaric, antiquated capital punishment must be abandoned


Few issues represent so profound a moral
conundrum and elicit so visceral an
emotional response as capital punish-
ment.
Some view it as an appropriate exercise
of the state's police powers and a method of
criminal deterrence necessary to maintain
public order. Others view it as an anachronis-
tic, inequitable and inhumane mechanism of
state-sanctioned murder.
No matter which of these views one iden-
tifies with, last week's U.S. Supreme Court
decision on the constitutionality of capital
punishment couldn't have been more disap-
pointing.
Last week, the Court rendered its highly
anticipated decision on the constitutionality
of Kehtucky's use of lethal injection. This case
presented the Court with the opportunity to
resolve the death-penalty question. The jus-
tices failed to accomplish this.
The court produced a convoluted and dis-
jointed decision that is in many ways reflec-
tive of the great complexity attendant to capi-


Joshua Fredrickson
letters@alligator.org


tal punishment.
The justices held
that lethal injec-
tion was con-
stitutional, yet
they disagreed
as to what ex-
actly merits a
constitutional
challenge to the


death penalty.
The most striking development of this
decision, however, isn't the immediate end
to the moratorium on executions. Rather, the
court's decision proved to be a turning point
for its longest serving member and it is
within his concurring opinion that the depth
of the agonizing moral questions inherent in
this great debate are most discernible.
Justice John Paul Stevens was among the
staunchest advocates of capital punishment
when he first came to the court, support-
ing its reinstatement of the death penalty in
1976. More than 30 years later, the sagacious


Stevens has come to a different conclusion.
Stevens concurred in the court's judgment
last week, citing the force of precedent. Yet
within his concurrence, Stevens declared
that he now believes capital punishment is
unconstitutional and that the nation needs to
reexamine the death penalty's legitimacy in
American society.
What at first glance appears to be little
more than rhetorical gymnastics is in actuality
a poignant portrait of the complex and moral
ambiguity of capital punishment.
I find myself mirroring Stevens' sentiment.
In principle, I support capital punishment, es-
pecially for heinous crimes and violent crimes
against children. I can't support in practice,
however, a system so flawed.
The death penalty is carried out capri-
ciously and disproportionately in this coun-
try. Minorities and the poor are more likely
to receive the death penalty. Those whose
victims were white are more likely to get thd
death penalty than those whose victims were
not. From an economic standpoint, the death


penalty is more expensive than life in prison.
Moreover, 123 people on death row have been
exonerated since 1973. And a University of
Michigan study shows that while death row
inmates represent less than 1 percent of the
prison population, they account for 22 percent
of those exonerated. How can we as a society
tolerate the possibility that the state is killing
people who are innocent?
I have never been the victim of a violent
crime, and neither has anyone close to me.
And I won't pretend to understand the anger,
resentment and thirst for vengeance that vic-
tims' loved ones justifiably-feel. But when we
continue a practice that the rest of the western
world has decried as barbaric and antiquated
- a practice that places us in league with
such exemplars of human rights as China,
Iran, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan we must
seriously question its validity. Capital punish-
ment in practice, in this country, is unaccept-
able. It must be abandoned.

Letters to the Editor
Column promoted stereotypes
Vincent Massaro's column
"Pope's U.S. visit a showcase of
excess" in Monday's paper was
very disrespectful to the pope, the
Catholic faith and all Catholics. In
his column, Massaro slammed the
center of the Catholic faith, Mass
and the Holy Eucharist.
Massaro's column was ridicu-
lously ignorant. If someone does
not understand religion or cus-
toms of a particular religion, he or
she should educate him or herself
and ask questions. That is why
UF hosts things like Religious
and Spiritual Diversity Week to
educate others on different reli-
gions and to decrease religious
discrimination and stereotypes on
campus. Massaro clearly knows
nothing about the 2,000 years of
Catholicism or the papacy tradi-
tion.
Pope Benedict XVI a man of
great humility, faith and peace -
came to this country to pray with
all kinds of people and bring hope


to millions. Pope Benedict XVI's
first papal visit to the U.S. was
historical and unprecedented as
he addressed the clergy sex abuse
in America, asked for forgiveness
on how the scandal was handled,
and met with victims, among a
number of things. Yet Massaro
did not mention any of these
things or what Benedict stands for
in his column.
Pope Benedict XVI's visit to
America has changed my life,
as I'm sure it did for many other
Catholics. Massaro offended me,
and I think he needs to apologize
for his words. He should apolo-
gize to all students of faith, espe-
cially Catholics in Gainesville, for
being so blatantly ignorant.
Jennifer Kacerosky

Pope visit offered hope to
many
It's readily apparent to anyone
familiar with the Catholic Church,
or His Holiness Pope Benedict


XVI, that Vincent Massaro's re-
cent opinion piece was poorly
researched and typical Catholic
bashing.
Apparently Mr. Massaro is
completely unaware that Pope
Benedict XVI is the spiritual lead-
er to more than 65 million Roman
Catholics here in the United
States and over one billion people
throughout the world. To deni-
grate His Holiness' visit to the
U.S. and to mock his vestments
and religious services is going
far beyond journalistic freedoms.
Rather, it shows a deep animosity
toward religion as a whole.
The relics Mr. Massaro refer-
enced in his "column" are holy
relics the Catholic Church has
used for millennia, not pieces
of "bling" used to impress the
masses.
Furthermore, it's obvious Mr.
Massaro's knowledge of the work
of Catholic Charities is similarly
non-existent. Catholic Charities
USA is the largest private net-


work of social service providers
in the country. Every year, mil-
lions are given to feed the hungry,
house the homeless and protect
children.
Had Mr. Massaro actually
done a modicum of research be-
fore spitting out his vile nonsense,
perhaps he would have under-
stood this fact. Instead, readers
are treated to yet another anti-
Catholic diatribe from yet another
ignorant detractor.

Sleepy studies: Rest else-
where
Last week and this week, the
computers in Library West have
been predictably in high demand.
Everyone has papers to finish and
research to do for the end of the
semester. In this time period, I
have seen no fewer than three


people napping in front of com-
puter screens in Library West
while others are standing, waiting
for a computer to free up to use.
I asked, but Library West ap-
parently has no set policy of kick-
ing out people who nap in front of
computers. This needs to change.
There should be a policy in place
giving library staff the right to
kick out computer-nappers.
More importantly, however,
these people should acquire some
common decency. Staying in front
of a computer while you nap just
so that you can use it when you
wake up is selfish. Other people
have projects to finish, too, and
no one has more right to hold the
computers than another person. If
you want to take a nap in the mid-
dle of your all-nighter, log out of
the computer, go back home or
at least to a chair elsewhere in the
library and get back in line for a
computer once you wake up.

UF ACADEMICS

More profs banning laptops


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org

As checking e-mail and surfing social-net-
working sites have become compulsive for many
college students, professors around the country
- and at UF have begun limiting laptop use
in classrooms.
Professors cite computers as distractions, es-
pecially when students can access the Internet to
check e-mail and play games under the guise of
taking notes.
While UF officials said there are no plans to
ban laptops or block wireless signals across the
university, some UF professors have already
taken such moves in their classes, and more are
planning to do so in the fall.
Meanwhile, the University of Chicago's law
school has taken the decision out of the hands of
professors and shut off Internet access in all its
classrooms.
George Dawson, associate dean of academic
affairs at the UF Levin College of Law, said turn-
ing off wireless hubs in UF's law classrooms
would not be worthwhile because students could
pick up other signals or use Internet on their cell
phones.
Dawson said UF officials discussed imple-
menting a university-wide laptop-use policy
about four or five years ago, but chose to leave
the decision up to individual instructors.
Since fall 2006, Jeffrey Harrison, a UF law pro-
fessor, said he has banned first-year law students
from using laptops in his classes.
Harrison said he instituted this policy after
seeing students in another classroom checking
their e-mail, shopping and downloading pornog-
raphy.
Even if students are taking rotes on,their lap-
tops, they become so preoccupied with catching
every word that they tune out the class discussion
and don't think critically about the material, he


said.
Upperclassmen tend to take notes more effec-
tively, so he lets them use laptops, he added.
Harrison said he also recognizes the advan-
tages of having a laptop in certain upper-level
classes, such as copyright law. He said he likes
students to be able to personally view certain
Web sites as he lectures.
The benefits of having laptops in class have
kept Haywood Smith, a UF associate professor
of astronomy, from restricting them in his classes.
But starting in the fall, Smith said he'll most likely
ban computers from his classes because he can't
make sure students are paying attention.
"I don't know if they're typing notes or
if they're playing video games or what
the heck they're doing."
Haywood Smith
UF associate professor of astronomy


"I don't know if they're typing notes or if
they're playing video games or what the heck
they're doing," he said.
Charles Telesco, another UF astronomy pro-
fessor, said he already prohibits laptops in his
classrooms.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said decisions
about laptop use are up to individual professors,
and UF has no plans to institute a university-wide
policy.
However, Virginia Maurer, a UF business
professor and chairwoman of UF's graduate
MBA program committee, said the program will
implement a complete "lids down" policy for all
its courses when the next class enters.
Maurer said most professors already adhere to
this standard, and the committee's move makes it
an official policy.
The policy means, "No multi-tasking orltelec-
tronic devices," she said. "Period."

Officials combat Internet crimes against minors


By WILL AFFORD
Alligator Writer
wpafford@alligator.org

As the Internet becomes an increasingly
dangerous place for children, local officials
are finding that Gainesville is not exempt
from online sexual predators.
Internet crimes against minors are grow-
ing nationwide, and they include sending
and downloading child pornography and
using the Internet to meet children with the
intent to commit sexual offenses.
These crimes are growing so much that
law enforcement officers cannot effectively
combat them.
"We are losing this battle," said Assistant
U.S. Attorney Frank Williams, who works
out of north Florida. "And the general pub-
lic has no idea."
Growing Danger
Every year, the National Center for
Missing & Exploited Children reviews child
pornography files it finds on the Internet.
From 2006 to 2007, the number of files
the center reviewed rose 66 percent, from
about 3 million to about 5 million. The re-
viewed files are expected to reach 7 million
by 2008.
CyberTipline, a national outlet for people
to report online child sexual exploitation,
received 105,261 tips in 2007, compared
with 76,584 in 2006.
The tips, which are distributed to the lo-
cal law enforcement agencies by the Internet
Crimes Against Children task force, are pro-


jected to reach 120,000 by 2008.
Internet pornography is a growing
problem not only in America but world-
wide, said Gainesville Police Department
Detective Mitchell Nixon.
"If you've got a computer, they're a
problem."
Nixon is part of the task force unit
that covers Gainesville and most of north
Florida.
The task force is a nationwide network
of law enforcement officers that assists local
agencies in fighting the sexual exploitation
of children on the Internet.
Several local incidents have recently re-
ceived widespread attention.
In late March, the Associated Press
reported that Lakeland law enforcement
officers charged 21 men with possession
and distribution of child pornography after
finding 100,000 pornographic images of
children, some as young as one month old.
In 2006, police discovered that UF law
professor John Shannon had been sharing
child pornography with people across the
country after they raided his computer.
Preventative Challenges
One reason child sexual exploitation is
such a serious problem on the Internet is
that parents and children know little about
it, Williams said.
"This is a huge deal and it's been long
overlooked," he said.
Many parents aren't aware of the dan-
gers because computers are such an inte-
gral part of their everyday lives that they


don't think about them as being dangerous,
Nixon said.
"The disturbing thing about the Internet
is it's in every home," he said.
The nature of the Internet helps empow-
er sexual predators because it allows them
to contact hundreds of children a day.
Children are vulnerable to this type of
crime because they are naive, Nixon said.
"Kids tend to be trusting," he said. "They
tend to have that immortality complex."
Nancy Case, head media specialist for
Alachua County public school media cen-
ters, echoed Nixon's beliefs.
"This is not a problem you can fix
with arrests."
Mitchell Nixon
Gainesville Police detective

"They only think of it as a source of fun,"
Case said. "They don't think of it as a source
of danger."
Undercover investigations of sexual
predators are also time consuming, and
it's difficult to get agency heads to devote
resources to them, Nixon said.
A federal bill sponsored by Sen. Joe
Biden, D-Del., would give law enforcement
needed resources, Nixon said.
The Combating Child Exploitation Act
of 2007, which has not yet been passed
by Congress, would allocate $1.05 billion
during the next eight years to enhancing
the Internet Crimes Against Children task
force.


Proactive Actions
One way the Alachua County Sheriff's
Office confronts the crime is by making
public safety presentations, Sheriff's Office
spokesman Sgt. Steve Maynard said.
All the media specialists who work in
Alachua County public schools are also
trained in the dangers the Internet poses to
children, Case said.
Judith Weaver, the media specialist at the
High Springs Community School middle
school, said every child there takes one class
a year on Internet safety.
She said one lesson the students are
taught is to log off if they receive a strange
or threatening message.
"It's sort of like the 'don't talk to strang-
ers' we teach them when they're little kids,"
she said.
Weaver has also taught parents in the
PTA how to protect their children by put-
ting computers in common areas in their
homes.
Nixon said part of protecting children is
applying age-old parenting techniques to
new technology.
"Know who your kids are talking to and
who their friends are," he said.
He said the exploitation of children
through the Internet has become such a
problem that parents need to be more pro-
active to learn how it works and how their
children could be in danger.
"This is not a problem you can fix with
arrests," he said. "Adults need to be more
aware about what's happening online and
so do kids."

CITY COMMISSION'


Outgoing city commissioners reflect on terms


Braddy often among dissenters


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Commissioner Ed Braddy has been
on the Gainesville City Commission for
six years now, but he says it feels like a
thousand.
That's because Braddy, who views his
position as an everyday job, has never
been a fan of big government.
"I didn't come in as someone who's
enamored with governmental power and
seeks its growth and expansion," Braddy
said.
As Gainesville's only conservative city
commissioner, Braddy will step down
from his District 2 seat on May 12.
Braddy, who works in the Academic
Foundations department at SFCC, first
became involved in politics working on
campaigns, such as David Bludworth's
for state attorney general in 1998. Though
Bludworth, an unheard-of candidate,
lost the election, it was impressive that
he even won the Republican primary,
Braddy said.
"That's when I learned upsets can hap-
pen," Braddy said. "You can be a part of
change."
Braddy considers his own 2002 elec-
tion an upset, when he ran against an
incumbent at a time when he said the city
was anti-business and morale was low.
"I would like to think it was my strik-
ing good looks and talent and charisma,"
he said, "but I think a lot of voters wanted
to give another guy a shot at the seat."
Though his views have often made
him a lone dissenting vote, Braddy
said there are other ways to get things
accomplished. For example, when the
commission first proposed the Southwest
Downtown Parking Garage a proposal
Braddy called "the Taj Mahal of parking
garages" he said he prevented them
from voting until citizens came forward
suggesting it could be built for less.
"Sometimes you can slow down the
commission by raising a viewpoint they
hadn't considered," he said.
Eventually the project was renegoti-
ated with a different company for $5 mil-


lion less than the original proposal.
"If nothing else, I am a fiscal hawk,"
Braddy said.
He's also used more creative tactics to
sway other commissioners.
When he first joined the commission
in 2002, he felt the city's Development
Review Board, which regulates existing
land use, was in need of amendments.
When others didn't agree, Braddy
upped the ante and called for getting rid
of the board altogether.
Suddenly, he said, the commissioners
were ready to make amendments.
Despite his frequent dissenting views,
Braddy said he doesn't think the commis-
sion will change much when Lauren Poe
takes over his seat.
Either the same deci-
sions will be made with
fewer dissenting votes,
he said, or more mod-
erate commissioners
will speak up to fill his
place.
Baddy "If you're already
surrounded by like-
minded thinkers, the only way to distin-
guish yourself is to move away," he said.
During his time on the commission,
Braddy said he's tried to make himself
available to his constituents and doesn't
mind being approached in Publix or at
the dry cleaner's about issues.
"That's my job," he said. "You're sup-
posed to ask. Don't apologize for bother-
ing me."
Though he chose not to run for the
commission again, he plans to continue
advocating individual rights as executive
director of the Gainesville branch of the
American Dreams Coalition, a cinserva-
tive political group that works to inform
local governments about affordable hous-
ing and easy access to cars and transpor-
tation.
There are already enough officials out
there who want to increase the size of
government, he said.
"I'm very proud of being a conser-
vative," he said. "I don't think there's
anything wrong with holding that view-
point."


Bryant has eyes on county seat


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

When Commissioner- Rick Bryant
steps down May 12 after five years on the
Gainesville City Commission, he hopes
someone else will step up on behalf of
small businesses.
Business owners, who often can't sit
in commission meetings that can last
until 11 p.m. on Mondays, have come to
depend on him to stand up for their inter-
ests, he said.
"I'm hoping someone will take up that
role on the commission after I leave," he
said.
,Bryant, assistant director of admis-
sions at UF and once a co-owner of a
Godfather's Pizza on 13th Street, ran on
a platform of helping small business,
improving parks and creating youth pro-
grams.
He's spent most of his five years
on the commission as chairman of the
Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs
Committee.
As chairman, he prides himself on cor-
recting faulty language in an ordinance
that had unintentionally made it illegal to
put cement in Possum Creek or Westside
parks for almost a decade.
Bryant spent six months in 2006 work-
ing out a compromise that allowed the
city to. install cement skate parks and
basketball courts at the parks.
He's also proud of his work with Teen
Zone, a free after-school program for
middle school students that has brought
together the county, city and school board
to serve as many as 700 students a day.
Bryant said he worries recent budget
cuts may have an impact on the program.
After building up a following on the
city commission, Bryant chose not to run
again in favor of running for the county
commission, which he feels has a bigger
impact on programs that have become
important to him.
He will be replaced by Thomas


Hawkins Jr.
Though Bryant has heard Hawkins'
views, he said he doesn't know yet
whether Hawkins will bring a big change
to the commission.
"You don't really figure out views of
people until they actually vote," he said.
When Bryant first signed up to run for
the at-large seat he holds, he had no po-
litical experience.
"I just went down and signed up," he
said. "It shocked a lot of people."
Not all his decisions have turned out
as he planned, he said.
In particular, he regrets voting to bring
in an outside agency to
run the city's paratransit
system, which brings
people to the hospital
for medical procedures
if they are unable to
drive.
"I had to get talked
Bryant into it," he said. "To me,
it hasn't been very successful."
If he could do it again, he said, he
would have gone with smaller local busi-
nesses.
He feels his non-political background
has kept him from getting swept up in
partisan politics.
Throughout his time on the commis-
sion, he has made it a point to speak with
people who represent both sides of every
argument, he said.
"Do not put yourself in the habit of
not taking meetings with groups you
don't philosophically agree with," Bryant
warned future commissioners. "Even if
you disagree with them, you learn some-
thing."
He hopes the commission will contin-
ue to support the youth programs, parks
and small businesses that have been im-
portant to him.
"Sometimes I'm referred to as 'the
common-sense commissioner,'" Bryant
said. "I just tend to vote what I think is
best."

Students hope to don robot gear


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org
Martin McBriarty, a UF materials science and en-
gineering senior, is calling all Gainesville residents to
donate scraps and junk for his personal summer project:
creating a nearly 40-pound robot costume.
After seeing similar outfits worn by rock band "The
Killer Robots," McBriarty and his friend, Jessica Awad,
have taken on the challenge of constructing their own
costumes. McBriarty said they'll probably wear their
costumes to future robot shows.
Awad, a UF entomology and nematology senior, said
she came up with the idea after meeting "The Killer
Robots" at a party Saturday night. After seeing the robot
costumes up close, she said she asked McBriarty to use
his engineering skills to help her build one.
"I'd rather build (a robot), but I think the costume
is probably as cose as I'm going to get," she said.
McBriarty jumped on board and said he wanted to build
one of his own, too.
Awad said they'd probably build the costumes in her
backyard and try to keep the cost under $100 by solicit-
ing donations of materials.


A LiveJoural post from Monday asks for Gainesville
residents for free items such as kid's toys, household
drainage pipes or "generally light and quasi-durable
junk."
Awad said she wants her costume to be interactive
like one band member's outfit, which had pieces of the
Simon game with colored lights.
"I want, like, cannons on my arm. That
would be really cool."
Jessica Awad
UF entomology and nematology senior

"I want, like, cannons on my arm," she said. "That
would be really cool."
McBriarty said he's not sure'about his design details.
"It should be ominous and unhuman and terrify-
ing," he said. "But, if you looked closely, you might see
a boom box rear panel for a breastplate or a steam vent
iade from the spout of a laundry-detergent jug."
He said he hasn't ever built much of anything, and
he's excited to take on such a new project.
"I figured I'll kind of wing it and see it where it goes,"
he said.

ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS

Students support energy fee


By AMELIA HARNISH
Alligator Contributing Writer

More than 800 students responded to a survey that
asked if they would be willing to pay 50 cents per
credit hour to finance sources of renewable energy on
campus. Results are in, and more than 80 percent said
"Yes."
The poll was conducted through online and paper
surveys, which were handed out in Turlington Plaza
and the Plaza of the Americas. The surveys were con-
ducted from the beginning of March through the begin-
ning of April.
Last spring, 78 percent of students approved the fee
as a referendum on the Student Government elections
ballot. However, that referendum did not inform stu-
dents that the fee would probably not be covered by the
Bright Futures Scholarship.
Therefore, UF's Division of Student Affairs and SG
helped conduct the latest survey, which found that 82,4
percent are willing to pay the fee even if it is not cov-
ered by Bright Futures.
Another purpose behind the latest survey was to
find out how students would like to use the money
raised by the fee, said Kelly Moosbrugger, treasurer of
Gators for Sustainable Campus, which helped conduct
the survey.
"It's the students' money," she said. "We'd obvi-
ously want to use it the way they'd want."
Based on the answers from the survey, the majority
of students want the money to be spent on solar tech-
nology and energy efficiency tools, like motion sensor
lighting and air conditioning improvements.
In order for the fee to be implemented, it still has to


be approved by the UF administration and the Board of
Trustees, UF's highest governing body. Then the state
Legislature would have to put it into effect.
Out of the responses gathered by the survey, 35
percent had never heard of the proposed fee and
34 percent had heard of it but knew little about it,
Moosbrugger said.
"By being energy efficient, UF will save
money, so students will save money, too."
Jennifer Levy
UF sophomore

"So, it's not like the only people who responded
were ones really interested in renewable energy," she
said.
Moosbrugger said she hopes to bring the results of
the survey before the Board of Trustees by June and
that she doesn't think the board will be opposed to ap-
proving the fee because it doesn't use Bright Futures
money.
The fee could help UF become a leader in renewable
energy use in the state of Florida, she said.
Schools -around Florida are working to imple-
ment their own renewable energy fees. Florida State
University and the University of Central Florida placed
a referendum question on their student government
ballots but have yet to conduct surveys.
Jennifer Levy, a UF sophomore, supports using the
fee on sustainability efforts.
"By being energy efficient, UF will save money, so
students will save money, too," Levy said. "Maybe that
50 cents per credit will make people more aware."

Fun Run to be


held Thursday

By VANESSA DIMAGGIO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Put down your textbooks, grab your sneakers and get
ready to run.
Healthy Gators 2010 and RecSports will be hosting the
Second Annual Midnight Fun Run Thursday as a way for
students to de-stress before finals week.
"Giving people a chance to get out of the library and
out of their dorm rooms, especially
Around with the end-of-the-year franticness, is
GaineSVille important," said Shanley Frey, Healthy
Gators 2010 public relations student
associate.
Frey said it's called a "fun run" because it's not a race.
"It's just a fun opportunity for people to run at mid-
night and enjoy themselves and the friends they're with,"
she said.
Participants can choose to run the 5K or walk the 1.5-
mile route. Both start at the O'Connell Center.
On-site registration costs $20 and begins at 10:30 p.m.
at Gate 2 of the O'Connell Center. Included in the price of
registration is a glow-in-the-dark T-shirt, wristband and
hot breakfast at Gator Comer Dining Center.
Frey said she hopes the run will become a pre-finals
week tradition at UF in the future.
"It's something that drew a lot of attention last year,
and we just hope it gets bigger every year," she said.

STUDENT LIFE

UF student to 'spin that wheel'


By LYNSEY WILLIAMSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Curiosity led Mary Katherine Smith to the op-
portunity of a lifetime the chance to spin that
famous wheel.
Smith, a journalism junior, will be featured on an
episode of "Wheel of Fortune" airing Friday.
While studying abroad in China in fall 2007,
Smith said she watched the game show often be-
cause there wasn't much else on TV.
"My friends and I sat there watching and won-
dered how people really got on the show," she
said.
Smith said she searched the show's Web site out
of curiosity and boredom and filled out an applica-
tion for information about auditions.
"Since I'm in journalism, I figured I'm pretty
good with words," she said.
The auditioning process was a whirlwind of
activity, she said. Sixty people in the auditioning
room were lined up to practice simulation puzzles,
which Smith said was probably to test the stage
presence of those auditioning.
Two weeks later, she received a letter to be on the
show. She spent a weekend in Los Angeles with her
family as the show taped six episodes on March 28.
She said she was nervous as she watched the


other shows but relaxed when it was her turn.
"I was a lot more composed than I thought I was
going to be," she said.
The biggest obstacles for Smith were the toss-
up puzzles, when random letters pop up on the
screens and any contestant can solve the puzzle at
any time.
"When it was my turn on the normal puzzles,
there was a slower pace," she said. "I didn't have to
be as quick on my feet."
"My friends and I sat there watching and
wondered how people really got on the
show."
Mary Katherine Smith
UF journalism junior

Smith said it was easier playing the game on
stage than watching it on TV. On stage, the audi-
ence vanished from mind and total focus was on the
puzzle, she said.
Although she can't reveal too many details about
the outcome of the show, Smith said she walked
away with more money than when she started.
Smith plans to watch the show Friday at The
Swamp Restaurant with friends. The show airs at
7 p.m. on CBS.

Floridance to


hold spring show

Floridance, UF's student-run dance, company, invites
the community to get "Caught in the Movement" and get
caught doing a good deed on Sunday.
The group will hold its spring showcase at the Phillips
Center at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free, and audience mem-
bers are asked to bring canned food for Compassion in
Action Pantry, a local food bank.
Julie Nelson, a UF accounting junior and
On Floridance publicity chair, said Sunday's show
:;'.. ,-.,, would feature a diverse selection of dance
styles, such as jazz, modem and tap.
Nelson said the show's title, "Caught in the
Movement," is modeled after a similar line in Kanye West's
song "Stronger," which is featured in the opening number.
The performance will probably last less than two hours,
so it will be a good study break for most students, she
added.
The show will feature 13 pieces choreographed by stu-
dent members and two guest performances, she said.

Reitz Union dining room to be renovated over summer


By ALLISON CANDREVA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Reservations for the Arredondo
Room in the Reitz Union will be
postponed, and the entire fourth
floor will be closed this summer as
remodeling plans are finalized.
The Arredondo Room is a dining
room that serves buffet-style meals
on the fourth floor of the Reitz


Union. Mike Mironack, director of
operations at the Reitz Union, said
construction would most likely last
into the fall. He said the estimated
cost would be between $500,000
and $700,000, which would come
from Gator Dining Services and the
Business Services Division.
Mironack said a meeting would
be held later this month to review
the plans, and construction is ex-


"We want it to be a more
popular dining location."
Mike Mironack
Reitz Union director of operations

pected to start this summer.
One of the changes to the room
would be moving the door, which
now faces east, to face north to al-
low students to walk off the eleva-


tors and turn into the dining room.
This change would bring the wall
down that divides the Micanopy
Room from the Arredondo Room,
combining the two into one 3,000-
square-foot dining room, he said.
Mironack said the room, which
currently seats about 90 people,
would seat about 120 people after
the renovations. The plans would
also include changes to the decor to


brighten up the room and eliminate
the dark ceiling, he said.
Since it's an old building, the
room has never been remodeled.
Mironack said much of the cost
would include bringing the room
up to current construction codes,
such as replacing the air condition-
ing.
"We want it to be a more popu-
lar dining location," he said.


Deadly motorcycle crashes rise nationally and locally


* MOTORCYCLE REGISTRATIONS
HAVE DOUBLED IN FLA. SINCE 2000.

By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Contributing Writer

Ten years ago Thursday, Dorian Handros
was sprawled on his back in a ditch on the
outskirts of Gainesville, submerged in
muddy water with his Honda sport motor-
cycle blanketing his body.
Two racing cars forced him off the road,
and Handros said without his riding ex-
perience and helmet, his injuries would
have been worse than the broken arm he
sustained.
"I consider myself very lucky," said


Handros, who today sports a foot-long scar
on his left arm as a permanent reminder of
the subsequent surgery.
Handros, 43, sales manager for
Gainesville Harley-Davidson & Buell, is
fortunate according to recent analysis by
Gannett News Service, which states that in
the past 10 years the number of motorcycle
fatalities nationwide has been increasing.
Most deaths have been middle-aged riders.
Florida numbers are similar, as the
number of motorcycle-related fatalities
increased by 18 percent from 2005 to 2006,
according to annual statistics reports from
the Florida Department of Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles.
Of the 521 fatalities in 2006, 174 were
between the ages of 35 and 54.


In Alachua County, 10 people died on
a motorcycle between 2002 and 2006, and
only one was less than 25 years old, accord-
ing to data compiled by Gannett.
Handros said the increases are mostly
because more riders are on the road. In
2000, there were 255,210 registered motor-
cycles in Florida, accord-
Around ing to the state motor
Gainesville vehicles department.
That number more than
doubled to 516,126 by 2005.
Handros said riders who give up the
luxury of a motorcycle when they have
children often get back on the road when
their kids leave home, but they are overcon-
fident in their unpracticed skills.
Florida law states that riders under 21


must take a safety course prior to receiving
a license and must wear a helmet, but older
riders just have to take a written test and
can opt not to wear safety gear if they have
the proper insurance.
Marc Pearl, 33, of Gainesville, said he
learned to ride in his home state of Illinois,
where there is no helmet law. He does not
wear a helmet unless he is riding on the
highway.
"You put a helmet on and you're going
by the norm what 'the man' thinks," said
Pearl, who has never been in an accident.
"Riding a bike is rebellious."
Handros has little empathy for those
who follow that line of thinking.
"If they want to become part of what I
call natural selection, go for it."

UF student deals with epilepsy


* SHE ALSO BATTLED ALCOHOL ADDICTION,
WHICH WAS TRIGGERING HER SEIZURES.

By KATIE COUVILLON
Alligator Contributing Writer

When Stephanie Yelverton woke up after the
first one, she couldn't remember her own name. The
seizure had scrambled her mind so thoroughly that
she didn't recognize the face of her worried mother
waving to her as the doors of the ambulance closed
her inside.
She would later learn that the seizure wasn't so
random. The trigger was binge drinking.
One in 10 people will experience a seizure in his
or her lifetime, but only one in 100 will be diagnosed
as epileptic, according to Dr. Kimford Meador, direc-
tor of the epilepsy program at UF's McKnight Brain
Institute.
Epilepsy is characterized by multiple seizures
and can be triggered by abusing drugs or alcohol,
Meador said.
Yelverton said she had never used drugs, but at
16, the now 20-year-old UF art history student had
been doing damage to her body by abusing alcohol
for more than a year while she had epilepsy.
Upon arriving at the hospital, doctors confiscated
her new driver's license, explaining that she was
now considered a danger on the road. They also
ran some tests on her brain to locate the cause of the
seizure.
When the results came back normal, Yelverton
and her family believed that the seizure was an
isolated incident despite doctors' warnings that the
episodes would probably continue.
Yelverton hadn't told the doctors about how
much she'd been drinking, and it would take three
more seizures for her to accept that alcohol addiction
was the real problem, she said.
A self-proclaimed "party person," Yelverton be-
gan drinking when she began high school. She said

it didn't take long for the habit to turn into a full-
blown addiction.
"I pretty much kept a bottle of vodka under my
bed at all times," the petite blonde said. "I drank
before school, during the day and at night. I wasn't
drinking to party. I was drinking because I had a
problem."
Yelverton hasn't had a seizure for more than
three years, but she still takes anti-epileptic medica-
tion daily. There is no way to determine whether she
has grown out of the disease or if the medication is
simply working.
"I'm a social person and I'm a party
person. I'm not going to be submissive to
this disorder."
Stephanie Yelverton
UF art history student

She admits that she has been drinking more since
she's been in college, but she said it's not happen-
ing in the abusive way that she believes caused her
seizures.
"I don't put myself in irresponsible situations like
I used to," she said. "You won't see me volunteering
for a chugging contest."
Her mother, Jennifer Yelverton, does not sup-
port the continued drinking but said she has come
to terms with her daughter's ability to live her own
life.
"She makes the decisions now," she said. "She's
the one who will have to face the consequences of
those decisions if she has another seizure."
The most immediate consequence is the loss of
her driver's license, but the potential for brain dam-
age is ever-present.
"I understand the dangers of my situation better
than anyone," Yelverton said. "I'm a social person
and I'm a party person. I'm not going to be submis-
sive to this disorder."

Divided Student Senate rejects investment bill


Harrison Diamond, Alligator Staff
UF Student Senate President and Student Body President-elect Kevin Reilly speaks at
Tuesday night's Senate meeting in the Reitz Union.


By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org

UF student senators voted against a bill
that would create a socially responsible in-
vestment advisory board at UF on Tuesday's
Student Senate meeting.
A student protest group has been clamor-
ing for changes to UF's investment policies
for about a year in an effort to ensure UF
does not invest in any socially irresponsible
companies.
Currently, UF does not disclose details of
its investments, but a majority of students
who voted in Student Government spring
elections approved a referendum that asked
UF to create a committee to advise the Board
of Trustees, UF's highest governing body, on
its investments.
Although 33 senators voted in favor of the
bill Tuesday night and 31 voted against it, the
proposal required two-third of senators' ap-
proval votes to pass.
The bill, which was written by Sen. Tina
Steiger and Sen. Brandon Sack, two of the
student protesters fighting for a change
to UF's investment policies, proposed to
create a board of students and faculty that
would help UF decide how to invest its
$1.2 billion endowment. The UF Investment
Corporation, a nonprofit group that handles
UF's endowment, is not required to release
details about how it invests.
Doing so would be nearly impossible
since UF's investments change almost daily,
UF officials have told protesters. In addition,
releasing information about UF's investment


strategies could encourage others to invest
the same way, which could decrease the
university's returns. Student senators argued
that people would have different definitions
of "socially responsible," making it difficult
to make recommendations to the board.
"I don't feel like its going to be representa-
tive of the whole student body," Sen. Jordan
Loh said. "How are we going to define
what's socially responsible for all the differ-
ent groups?"
"I don't feel like its going to be rep-
resentative of the whole student
body."
Jordan Loh
student senator

Other senators argued that the bill was
simply redundant, as the board and UF
President Bernie Machen have already
expressed support for socially responsible
investments.
Sen. Michael Ramsey said the board
shouldn't need advisers to help it make deci-
sions.
"I have trust in them, and I think we all
should, too."
Kevin Reilly, Student Body president-
elect, reiterated UF's concerns, adding that
it would be difficult for an advisory board
to keep up with the ever-changing invest-
ments.
"It's going to be very difficult and hard-
fought to 'track $1.2 billion in investments
that is changing day by day, hour by hour,
minute by minute," Reilly said.

Gainesville towing companies won't be suspended


* GPD CHIEF ALLOWS COMPANIES
TO CONTINUE ROAM TOWING.

By WILL AFFORD
Alligator Writer
wpafford@alligator.org

Three Gainesville towing companies
that appealed a roam-towing suspension
after violating a city ordinance will not be
suspended after all.


Gainesville Police Chief Norman
Botsford wrote a letter to Elite Auto Center,
Ultimate Towing, and Watson's Towing
and Recovery Friday that stated the com-
panies would be allowed to continue roam
towing.
They were facing suspension after vio-
lating part of a Gainesville ordinance that
requires tow companies to take cars direct-
ly from the place where they are towed to
the tow owner's permanent address.


In appeals to GPD, the tow companies
argued that suspensions were unwarranted
because court-ordered refunds and fines
were punishment enough,
?s*... Botsford's letter stated. In ad-
News edition, the companies said all
vehicles towed were parked
illegally and no specific rights of citizens
were violated, according to his letter.
Although the companies had racked up
93 violations, the violations all took place


within three weeks and were cited by po-
lice on two days, Sept. 7 and Sept. 28, ac-
cording to the letter. -.
Based on the circumstances, Botsford's
letter stated that he perceived this situation
to be an "anomaly not likely of repetitions,"
and should therefore be treated as a single
violation.
Since the suspension was based on hav-
ing three or more violations within a year,
it was rescinded.


Moseley focused on 'tangible benefits'


MOSELEY, from page 1

programs, which debuted in the fall and expanded to two
libraries this semester. It is expected to continue as long as
students keep poring over books at libraries until 4 a.m.
SMoseley's administration also wanted to rid some worry
from students about which apartment complex to sign a
lease with. About half of the apartment complexes that at-
tended the fall SG-sponsored Housing Fair will bear the
SG seal.of approval, which he said will assure students that
those companies have fair leasing practices.
"Students will be more comfortable," Moseley said. "It's
a big benefit."
"One of the big complaints with SG in general
is that we're not reaching out to students."
Ryan Moseley
Student Body president.


Along with trying to makes students' lives easier and
promoting sustainability, Moseley's administration set up a
UF book market Web site.
Students can use their GatorLink login to buy and sell
textbooks using a classified feature and to sign up to be e-
mailed when they've been outbid.
Moseley, who also serves on the Board of Trustees, UF's
highest governing body, said one of his most gratifying ac-
complishments was the investigation of professors who ben-
efit financially from CD course packs, a project he has been
working on since before he was president.
Moseley's suggested changes to UF's current policy
would lend a break to students in classes requiring a costly
CD or course pack. The changes would require the board's
approval before going into effect.
The change could require a professor to provide a bor-
rowed copy of a book to a student who said he or she


couldn't afford one and provide basic class materials, in-
cluding a syllabus, in a regular format for all students.
To save money, he said a more permanent band shell on
Flavet Field with a 50-year guarantee would soon be built.
Moseley said it's a long-term investment meant to save the
$100,000 fee to build a temporary venue every time there is
an event on the field needing a stage.
In December, Moseley was halfway through his term and
his goals, including reviving Chomp the Vote, an SG pro-
gram designed to increase student turnout at all elections.
More than 2,100 students were registered to vote through
the program this year, and about 20,000 voting registration
forms were made available at local apartment complexes
and on-campus residences.
Last year, less than 100 students were registered to vote
with the program.
Another major project was installing a Global Positioning
System, or GPS, on Regional Transit System buses. Moseley
said all 50 or 60 buses are already equipped with the system,
and the Web site where students can track a bus's route in
real time will be up by the first week of May.
"One of the big complaints with SG in general is that
we're not reaching out to students," Moseley said.
But he said his platform has. Still, Moseley's completion
of nearly all of his goals wasn't enough for some of his crit-
ics.
Tommy Jardon, a UF law student who ran for Student
Body president with the Orange and Blue Party this semes-
ter, said installing GPS on buses is a "gimmicky" initiative
and a waste of money.
"They only consider it a job well done if they've spent a
lot of students' money," Jardon said. "For all I know, some of
those 22 goals could've been done better or shouldn't have
been done at all."
He said Moseley's administration could've done many
more practical projects including replacing UF's WebMail
system with Google's Gmail.
As for Kevin Reilly, Student Body President elect and for-
mer Student Senate president, Jardon said he looks forward

UF gets rare midweek break, enjoys chance to recoup


Andrew Stanflll Alligator Staff
UF first baseman Brandon McArthur and the rest of the Gators are taking advantage of a few days off
snice there's no midweek games. UF will host SEC-leader Georgia this weekend.


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

It's been a long time since Brandon
McArthur got to sit down and watch
Wednesday Night Baseball.
Without any games to actually
play until Friday, McArthur will fi-
nally get his chance Yankees vs.
White Sox, 8:11 p.m., ESPN.
This week is the first of the entire
season that the Gators don't square
off against another team on Tuesday
or Wednesday night, and the players
appreciate the mental refresher.
"It's a little weird to have this en-
tire week off," McArthur said. "But it
can also turn out to be a very good
thing."
The senior first baseman took time
Tuesday night to train his brain for a
final exam, his last class at UF.
"Then, hopefully, I'll graduate," he
said with a laugh.
The team needs the physical
breather as well. After playing on
Friday and Saturday for the first time
since he ruptured his anterior cruciate
ligament on April 2, McArthur missed
Sunday's game against Kentucky
when his knee stiffened up.
"Rehab, that's what I'll be doing,"


McArthur said. "I can't take time off
from rehabbing, because if I do that
then I can look back and say, 'Well, I
should have rehabbed.'"
Sophomore shortstop Cole
Figueroa sprained his ankle in the
Kentucky series, and he used his
three free hours Tuesday night to
catch up on sleep.
"I think everybody's getting a
little injury bug right now," Figueroa
said. "It'll give us a
little boost going into
Srthis very important
weekend ... It's
Baseball been a long couple
Baseball weeks."
UF coach Kevin
O'Sullivan said he would rather his
team take the field during the week.
"I wish we were playing at least
(Tuesday and Wednesday), but that's
the way the schedule worked out,"
he said. "We haven't played as sharp
the last couple weeks, so maybe this
week will be good for us to get some
more ground balls and work on fun-
damentals."
They might need the work in the
field. When asked to pinpoint what
was going wrong with UF these last
few weeks, O'Sullivan had a -dear

UF GYMNASTICS

Gators head to NCAAs


By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Staff Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

"It takes about 198 points to win ... And
.025 to lose. Will you fight to get the extra
.025?"
That slogan has been on a sign hang-
ing in the Gators' practice facility all year,
and in two competitions, they may have
forgotten about it.
Twice this season, UF just didn't have
enough to get past that small margin, and
both times it was against Georgia.
As long as the No. 3 Gators (12-3-1, 4-2
Southeastern Conference) make it past the
first round of the NCAA Championships
in Athens, Ga., on Thursday as they are
expected to, they will have their third op-
portunity to prove they have more fight
than the No. 1 Bulldogs.
If UF is to take the national title from
the three-time defending champions, it
will have to do it in UGA's arena. -
"It's in their home, so this will give
it a little more emphasis, and it will be
so exciting to win there, especially after
losing to them this year," senior Ashley
Reed safdt


UGA is encouraging all of its fans to
wear black to the competition to give it
more of an edge.
Despite the thousands of barking
Bulldog fans that will be in attendance,
sophomore Melanie Sinclair doesn't
expect the home advantage to have any
affect on the results.
"If the judges judge
accordingly and fair,
then there should be
no benefit being home,
because last year SECs
were at (Arkansas) and
they didn't win, so it's
Sort of the same sense,"
Sinclair said.
Sinclair While UGA is the
heavy favorite and has not lost at home
since 2005 the Gym Dogs lost to UF
and Alabama that season they were
only victorious once in the three times
they hosted the NCAA Championships.
The Bulldogs will have to deal with a
Gators team that is feeling overlooked and
ready to leaveeverything on the mat.
"We are the underdogs, and right now

have always believed that things happen
for a reason.
My faith was tested severely time and
time again this school year, as setback after
setback made my post-graduation profes-
sional dream look dimmer and dimmer.
Finally, in January that dream was shat-
tered after months of hard work.
Unlike many journalism graduates, I
was lucky.
I had a fallback option.
Instead of traveling abroad for the sum-
mer, I will work in Chicago, my birthplace
and the home of the majority of my ex-
tended family.
I wasn't thrilled with settling for option
No. 2.
I wasn't thrilled, up until a few weeks
ago, when I listened to my mom on the
phone, and my heart sank.
Dorothy had cancer.
We all shorten her name to "Do." She is

and my brothers and sisters. She brought us
close to God. She has always been there for
us, even when separated by 1,000 miles.

"We're (near) last in fielding percentage," O'Sullivan said.
"It's killed us. Not just the fielding percentage itself, but the
errors that we've made have come at the most crucial times
and killed us."
Tuesday and Wednesday may hold some time off to get out
the kinks, but the Gators (25-15, 10-8 SEC) haven't had as im-
portant a series as the one they host this weekend.
SEC-leading No. 10 Georgia (27-12-1,
14-3-1 SEC) comes to Gainesville for a three-
game series Friday, starting off four grueling
weekend series before the SEC Tournament
on May 21.
"It's really big for us," Figueroa said. "We
just want to go out here and play well, get a
couple of games from them. If we could go
for the sweep, that would be amazing."
Figueroa The Bulldogs' closer, Joshua Fields, has
11 saves and has not surrendered an earned run all season.
If the Gators can make it through the rest of the regular sea-
son and remain one of the top eight teams in the SEC, they'll
head to Hoover, Ala., for the SEC Tournament. McArthur
knows how special it is to play in that tournament, and he
hopes to give the younger players some idea of what it means.
"Some of these guys haven't experienced the freaking honor
you get when you get escorted to the field by motorcycle cops
and stuff like that," McArthur said. "That's what I really want
to help these guys with, is those visual memories that I have of
that stuff, and how meaningful that stuff is. And I want to give
them the opportunity to get there, too, so that they can experi-
ence that themselves."

Pair of Jokers



Fun and friendship helps duo propel Gators to historic two-year rin


By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

Before Amanda Castillo stepped
in her new training center, most of
the other girls at the Orlando Metro
thought they knew her.
They had heard from Castillo's
former teammates that she was
cocky and stuck up.
"When I was at (Brown's
Gymnastics in Sanford), I was mov-
ing up quicker than the other girls,
and a bunch of them were getting
jealous and making me feel bad,"
Castillo said. "So before I even went
to Metro, those girls went to school
with Melanie (Sinclair) and were
telling Mel that I was stuck-up.
When I went to Metro, everyone had
a stereotype of me, but that wasn't
me at all."
However, Sinclair didn't blindly
accept the rumor and instead tried
to make Castillo feel welcomed in
her new home.
"I remember I was on bars and
Melanie cheered for me, and she
was the only person cheering for me
that day," Castillo said. "Ever since
then, we have been best friends."
Despite coming from different
backgrounds, their bouncy per-
sonalities have created a bond that
lasted into their college careers.
"We are total opposites, and op-
posites attract," Sinclair said. "We
have different beliefs and morals,
but we are similar in ways and we
understand each other. We are both
loud and obnoxious."
The duo is now at UF and
changing how the No. 3 Gators ap-
proach competitions, but they took
very different routes on the way to
Gainesville.

Hyperactive
For someone as hyper and ener-
getic as Castillo, there are few places
to safely let that vigor out as a child.
Luckily, her parents found a
haven to protect Castillo from
injuries she surely would have sus-
tained from jumping on couches
- Brown's Gymnastics.
She enrolled in gymnastics
classes there as a 5-year-old, and it
was apparent right away that she
was a special talent when it came to
the sport.
"When you first start gymnas-
tics, you do recreational classes, then
Level 1, 2,3 and so on," Castillo said.
"Some kids stay in Level 1 for a year,
and I was in it for a week."
It was not until she started per-
forming competitively in the preteen
division that Castillo realized she
could have a future in gymnastics.
"Right before preteen competi-
tion, a bunch of coaches told my
parents 'She is a special talent and
should pursue gymnastics,' so my
parents just went along with it,"
Castillo said.
She continued to have success
in the sport until a fractured back
forced her to quit when she was a
freshman in high school.
A year later, she decided to re-
turn to the sport she loves, but not to


Brown's Gymnastics.
Instead, she went to be trained at
one of the toughest facilities in state
Orlando Metro.
"There are a bunch of horror
stories about the Orlando Metro,
because Jeff (Wood) is such a hard
coach and I was scared to go, so I
never pursued it earlier and went
to another gym for 10 years, and I
felt like I wasted my time there,"
Castillo said.
Orlando Metro lived up to its
infamous reputation and pushed
her harder than she had been previ-
ously tested.
"We are total opposites,
and opposites attract."
Melanie Sinclair
UF sophomore gymnast

"You have those days where you
just don't want to go in at all, or you
are at practice and asking the coach-
es, 'Please just kick me oit,'" Castillo
said. "It was harder, but I found a
new love for the sport, so that hard
work didn't seem so intense."
Along with the rediscovered
fondness, Orlando Metro was the
place where she met Sinclair and
four other future Gators gymnasts
- Tiffany Murry, Ashley Reed,
Courtney Gladys and Ashley Kerr.
The gymnasts and coaches cre-
ated a second family for Castillo to
rely on during tough times in the
gym, and it worked.
Castillo won the floor exercise
in 2004 and 2005 at Level 10 Junior
Olympic Nationals and was the run-
ner-up in 2006.
With her success at a prominent
level came plenty of suitors in the
form of college coaches, but Castillo
already had her mind made up.
She had decided at age 6, when
she first stepped foot in the UF prac-
tice facility.
"I tried to give other schools a
chance, but I knew I wanted to be a
Florida Gator," Castillo said. "Most
of the schools knew I wanted to be a
Gator. My e-mail address was oran-
geandblue."

Early Riser
While Castillo was climbing the
levels, Sinclair was already making
a name for herself in international
competitions.
She was named to the U.S. na-
tional team when she was just 12
years old and was soon competing
for her country overseas.
Her first trip was to Canberra,
Australia, where she got a chance
to display her skills to the world and
see parts of it she wouldn't get to see
otherwise.
"Some of the things I used to do
just seemed so easy, but it was an
eye-opening experience," Sinclair
said. "We learned from every com-
petition, but I had fun. I remember
getting to pet a kangaroo."
Even though she was working
her way to global glory, Sinclair got
to where she is because of her cub
coach.
Like Castillo, Sinclair was en-


rolled in gymnastics at an early age
to keep her out of dangerous situa-
tions caused by her rambunctious
demeanor.
However, Sinclair started at
Orlando Metro right away with Jeff
Wood, who became like a second
father to her.
"We were a family. We still are
a family," Sinclair said. "When you
spend most of your day in the gym
- we spent almost eight hours a
day there and it's during the
maturing years of your life, they are
definitely going to play a major role
in your life.
"I wouldn't be as dedicated, as
devoted to the sport as I am now, if I
didn't go through all that."
Although Sinclair might have
viewed Wood as a father figure, she
had to deal with more yelling than
most children do from their dads.
With as much shouting as Wood
did, it's hard for Sinclair to remem-
ber any certain tirade.
"One? There's been many,"
Sinclair said. "Oh man, .there are
times when you don't think you are
going to make it through the day,
and there are days you dreaded go-
ing into practice because you feared
what might happen. Sometimes
in competitions, you were more
afraid of what he would think of
your performance than your actual
performance."
Toward the end of her cub ca-
reer, Sinclair began looking at col-
leges and chose UF over the likes
of LSU and Georgia because of the
staff and its proximity to her home
in Orlando.
Before enrolling at UF, she made
one last attempt to qualify for the
U.S. world championships team in
2005, and disaster struck.
"I went to a national team camp
and they sent me out to France for
a World Cup meet, and I tore my
[anterior cruciate ligament], so that
went out the window," Sinclair
said.
She did not immediately get her
knee checked out because of the
fear of disappointing her coach and
country.
"I tried so hard not to limp, and
that was the hardest task ever,"
Sinclair said.
When she finally did find out
what was wrong, Sinclair began to
worry about her future as a Gator.
UF coach Rhonda Faehn knew
that Sinclair had a long road of
recovery before she would be able
to compete for the Gators, but she
stood by her recruit.
"For us, it was sad, and we felt
bad for her, because we knew that's
not how she wanted to start her col-
lege career," Faehn said. "It is always
difficult to be in a new environment
with a new team and not be able to
contribute.
"She struggled a little bit to get
adjusted, but we knew her talent
level and her work ethic, so I had
no doubt that when she was healthy,
she would really figure things out."
But not even Faehn could predict
the impact Sinclair would soon have
on her program.

UF gymnasts Amanda Castillo and Melanie Sinclair share a laugh
between events at the NCAA Southeast Region Championships on
April 12 in the O'Connell Center. The No. 3 Gators won the meet.


Joining Forces
Despite Sinclair being a year
ahead of Castillo, it was only right
that they would start their college
'careers together.
Since Sinclair tore her ACL, she
was unable to compete her first year
at UF and was redshirted.
Last season, the two played
major roles in the Gators' unde-
feated regular season, Southeastern
Conference Championship title and
third-place finish at the national
championship.
As a true freshman, Castillo pro-
vided UF with its best individual
performance at nationals by finish-
ing third in the all-around com-
petition and earning All-America
honors in all-around, vault, uneven
bars and balance beam.
Faehn had confidence that
Castillo could put up that kind of
performance all season but was
initially concerned with how her
athlete would handle pressure situ-
ations.
"We knew she was healthy com-
ing in and she had tremendous
talent/" Faehn said. "She was a star
waiting to happen, but we didn't
know exactly how she would feed
off the competition and how she
would do in arenas where there


aren't 10,000 fans cheering for her.
Those little things we didn't know,
but she happily surprised us, and
she did an unbelievable job."
While Castillo was thriving as
an all-arounder, Sinclair had to be
limited to mostly uneven bars and
balance beam.-
Sinclair excelled in both, becom-
ing an All-American in the two
events, but it was on the bars where
she really stood out.
She accumulated eight bar titles
throughout the season, including
two victories by the way of perfect
scores.
Despite the top performances,
she never competed at full strength
until this year.
Sinclair is third on the team this
season in event titles with 16, and
she is starting to look like the na-
tional team competitor she yzas just
two years ago.
"This is the healthiest she has
been her entire career, so we are re-
ally excited about that," Faehn said.
"It's paying off for her because of
what she has put in, working her
tail off this past summer and this
entire year."
With Sinclair putting away con-

cerns about her knee, Castillo had to
bat down any talk of a sophomore
slump.
She did so emphatically, claim-
ing 18 event titles, good enough for
second on the team.
The only other question about
Castillo was whether she could be
consistent on beam.
To help her keep her poise on the
4-inch wide beam, she uses a type of
equipment none of the other Gators
wear.
She has beam shoes that look like
socks.
"I have really sweaty hands and
feet," Castillo said. "I used to not
wear socks when I was at Metro,
and Jeff helped me find a way to
overcome my sweaty feet, so he let
me wear my socks during practice
and I have worked out like that ever
since."
Before donning the socks, some
of her teammates probably wished
she would for their own benefit.
"I remember in club before
she started wearing her socks, she
would get up and there would be
puddles everywhere on the beam,
and no one would want to go on
after her," Sinclair joked.
Even if the socks might be a little
unconventional and detrimental to
other gymnasts, Faehn is sticking


with the "If it ain't broke, don't fix
it" policy as long as Castillo con-
tinues to perform well in the event
- she won three titles on the beam
this season.
If there is any question as to how
important the two sub-5 footers are
to the team, the
only two regu-
lar-season meets
-', where neither
Gymnastics won an event
title ended in
narrow losses
to Georgia and Alabama, the only
blights on the Gators' record.
All Wound Up
Although their high marks
might bring in the W's, it is not the
only thing they bring to the table to
put UF in position to win a national
championship.
The emotion they carry into each
meet has affected the team and the
way it handles its business.
"The energy really elevated in
the gym when they showed up be-
cause they keep everyone smiling
and laughing," senior Ashley Reed
said.
"They really get everyone
pumped up during practice and the
meets."
Their energy can be summed up
during the Gators' custom of run-
ning to a teammate and giving out
high-fives after a routine.


While the whole team takes part
in it, these two can be seen running
a little faster and a little more out of
control than the rest.
"They have to stand still for so
long, and they have so much en-
ergy that they can't help but sprint,"
senior Tiffany Murry said. "I get
nervous a lot, especially with Mel,
because she has been known to miss
hands and hit in other places."
It is this type of behavior that
makes Faehn feel like "she had hit
the jackpot" getting two talented
gymnasts with that much enthu-
siasm, but she also admits to wor-
rying about their fun-loving ways
affecting their performance.
"Every once in a while, I'm con-
cerned they're using too much en-
ergy," Faehn said. "I know (assistant
coach Robert Ladanyi) has had to
bring them down a little bit and say,
'Hey, lets focus a little bit more,' but
that is not a bad problem to have."
For now, the two will keep danc-
ing and enjoying their time on the
mat at UF, but eventually, Faehn will
have to start looking for new faces to
replace their energy.
Faehn can enjoy coaching and
watching the Castillo and Sinclair
Show for another two years before
the search begins, but she wishes her
time with them couldlast longer.
"I would love to have them for 20
years if I could, but I'm glad they are
only sophomores," Faehn said.

UF SOFTBALL


Gators sweep doubleheader without Nelson's aid


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

For the first time all season, ju-
nior Stacey Nelson did not throw
a single pitch in either game of a
doubleheader.
Taking advantage of the
last break in the Southeastern
Conference schedule, UF coach
Tim Walton kept his All-American
on the bench Tuesday, while a pair
of freshmen shouldered the pitch-
ing load.
"Not having to throw Stacey
Nelson today was a huge lift," he
said.
Nelson came into the double-


header with Jacksonville (21-39,
5-17 Atlantic Sun) having thrown
over 62 percent of No. 3 UF's total
innings.
However, as the sun went
down over Pressly Stadium, it was
Stephanie Brombacher who used
this opportunity to light up the
visiting Dolphins.
In Game 1, Brombacher out-
dueled Ashley Iveson to a 2-0
decision, which saw only nine hits
from both teams combined.
The Gators (53-2, 21-1 SEC)
could muster only five of those
hits, producing both of their runs
in the fourth inning courtesy of a
bases-loaded walk and a sacrifice
fly.


"We didn't hit the ball as well as
we have to hit the ball this week-
end," Walton said.
Despite the lack of run support,
Jacksonville never really threat-
ened UF thanks to Brombacher
pitching her best game of the year.
The freshman threw a complete
game and did not walk a single
batter in addition to logging the
highest strikeout total of her career
(nine).
"I needed it a little bit for my
confidence," she said. "Just to
know that I can go out there and
throw seven innings."
The complete-game effort was
her first since March 29 against
LSU, which was also her last ap-

dium on Feb. 17.


pearance that she didn't allow a
run.
Freshman Kelsey Bruder got
her first career start in Game 2,
pitching 5 1/3 innings while giv-
ing up just two hits.

"I was really proud to see
her take her pitching to
another level."
Tim Walton
UF softball coach

"She did well," Walton said.
"She pitched well. She changed
her speeds. She hit locations, hit
her spots."
After becoming the third pitch-
er to earn a win in her first career
start this season Brombacher
and freshman Kristen Adkins were
the other two Bruder pointed to
her off-speed pitches as the reason
for her success.
"Since I'm not an overpowering
pitcher, it's really important that I
keep that change-up there," she
said. "It keeps batters off balance
and lets me hit my corners better."
Bruder got into a jam in the sixth
inning, allowing two Dolphins to
reach base with only one out.
Walton came out to the circle,
took the ball from Bruder-and put
in his closer with a 3-0 lead and the
tying run coming to the plate.
"We're not going to lose these
games," he said after the game
when asked if Nelson was avail-
able to pitch.
But this time, it was Brombacher
who came in and closed the door
on any hopes of a Jacksonville
comeback.
Feeding off back-to-back poor
performances and the need to
prove she can take the ball in close
games, the No. 2 starter looked like
an ace in the final 1 2/3 innings.


Relying heavily on her rise ball,
she struck out both bars she
faced, pitching the Gators out of a
potential jam.
After the offense tacked on two
more insurance runs to give UF
a 5-0 lead, Brombacher followed
up an impressive sixth with an
improbable seventh she struck
out the side.
"That was as good as I've seen
her look, right there, to close out a
game," Walton said. "I was really
proud to see her take her pitching
to another level."
Before Tuesday, seven strike-
outs was Brombacher's high for a
single game.
In relief of Bruder, she had five
in less than two innings.
"I needed this to show myself
and the team that I'm here for
them and I can do it," she said.
The save was her third in as
many chances this season.
Only one Gators batter had
multiple hits in Game 2, as sopho-
more Francesca Enea went 2 for 3
with two RBIs, including a tw6-
run home run in the first inning.
Enea leads the team with 12
home runs on the season and said
she didn't feel any additional pres-
sure with all three of her RBIs com-
ing with two outs.
"I feel the most pressure for my-
self when I lead off an inning and I
know I have to get things started,"
she said.
Even with the strong showing
by Enea, it appeared Walton gave
the offense the day off, along with
Nelson, for much of the day.
The team's cleanup 1itier ad-
mitted that the Gators can't have
off days like this -one against
tougher competition.
"I'm glad we got it over with
today instead of against an SEC
team," she said.

I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather
be, not even living that dream that fell
through back in January.
Things happen for a reason.
This is my final story as an Alligator
writer after three years on the sports staff.
I wish I could rev up the De Lorean,
travel through time and live it all over
again.
But I don't want this column to be about
me.
It's about those who shaped me while
at the Alligator, those who I look up to and
those who I care about.
Without further ado, here come the
thank yous (I apologize beforehand if my
forgetful mind left anyone out).
Alligator mentors Drew's Control,
Louis in the Bullpen, App-etite for
Receptions and Extra Iannings. You all
rock. Just reading your stories and interact-
ing with you in my first three years taught
me so much about the business. I hope I
made you proud.
Fellow seniors Spencer Davis-VanNess,
Alden Gonzalez, Bryan Jones, Danny


Klein, Jenna Marina and Rachel Robins.
We experienced so much together, and
those times I would not trade for anything
in the world, not even an Illinois national
championship.
Spencer, thanks for coming out of retire-
ment to copy edit.
Alden and Rachel, I forgive you for
leaving the Alligator.
Danny, cherish the Record.
Bryan, reading your column on
Tuesday brought me the closest to tears I
have been since April 4,2005. I will always
be a phone call away if you want to discuss
fantasy sports.
Jenna, you are the most amazing person
I have ever met. You inspire me. I hope
I can travel to Atlanta once or twice this
summer to see your smiling face again.
Don't forget to pack the pepper spray.

once, I would like to switch jobs with you
for a football game, but I would not look
forward to lugging all that equipment up
and down the sideline.
Copy editors Mike Harkins, Jennifer
Klee, Jennifer Shepard, Jenn Pfaff, Heather
Waters, and many others. Thanks for catch-
ing my countless grammatical and factual
errors and making me look like a some-
what competent writer in print.
Production all-stars Billy Bender, Kristin
Bjomsen, Steph Gocklin and James Hibbs.
I will miss Kristin and Steph's hard work
and ability to keep the sports department
in line. I will miss the Billy and James com-
edy hour in back just as much, if not more.

who was gracious enough to allow the
finance of most of the sports road trips.

Mike, I pass the Tim Tebow baton to
you, from one Nease alum to another.
Gators beat writers Dave Curtis,
Lindsay Jones and Edgar Thompson.
Thanks for showing me the ropes. If I
could improve to be half as talented as any
of you, then I'll be more than satisfied.
Sports information directors, includ-
ing Kathy Cafazzo, Fred Demarest, Zack
Higbee, Mary Howard and Steve McClain,
you all do a great job (you don't hear that
enough from the beat writers), even though
we had our share of disagreements.
And thanks to all the players and
coaches, whose success allowed me to
travel across the country, nearly for free.
If I have any loyal readers out there, I
feel obligated to tell you this:
I have accepted an internship covering
the Chicago Cubs for MLB.com this sum-
mer.
I get to return to my hometown and
work in a baseball cathedral.
While spending my days at Wrigley
Field, there will be times I think to myself,
it doesn't get any better than this, does it?
Then I will flash back, reminisce about
the Alligator and realize how great I really
had it.
