UF looks to next .



year after loss. . .


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

OKLAHOMA CITY UF out-
scored Texas A&M 6-2 on Sunday.
Unfortunately for the No. 1 Gators
(70-5), the teams played two games.
After a .3-2 loss to Louisiana-
Lafayette on Thursday, UF came back
and won three in a row to put itself in
position to advance to the Women's
College World Series Championship
Series against Arizona State with one
more win.
But for the second season in a
row, the No. 5 Aggies (57-8) ended
the Gators' postseason, this time
with a 1-0 decision that took nine
innings.
Junior Stacey Nelson exchanged
zeros with A&M senior Megan
Gibson, but in the end the Aggies
were able to get the big hit that


would be the difference in the pitch-
ers' duel.
UF left Oklahoma City as one of
the final four teams in the tourna-
ment, and the owners of the best run
differential (7) for any team in the
tournament other than ASU. Of the
Gators' five losses this season, four
of them came by a
score of 1-0.
The national
championship hope
is over for the Orange
Softball and Blue, but this
year's team enjoyed
the most successful season in the 11-
year history of UF softball.
"It's tough to lose, but I don't
know of any other team that has
gone or ever will go 70-5," coach Tim
Walton said. "It's unbelievable."

GPD tackles youth crime


By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Writer

As local high school students start
summer vacation this Thursday, the
Gainesville Police Department is
bracing itself for a potential increase
in juvenile crime.
Police are taking notice of the ten-
sion building among rival neighbor-
hoods in east Gainesville after about
35 teenagers were found fighting at
the Northeast Pool near Waldo Road
two weeks ago.
The department is looking for
ways to keep juvenile crime and
gang involvement from increasing
during months when school is out
of session.
July, August and September were
peak months in 2006 for crime com-
mitted by residents under 18, accord-
ing to data compiled by the State

GPD Capt. Lonnie Scott said one
way to combat juvenile crime is to

Bo Diddley dies in Archer home


By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Writer

Bo Diddley, a pioneer and patriarch of the
pounding pulse of rock 'n' roll, died Monday
in his Archer home of heart failure. He was
79.
Born in McComb, Miss., as Otha Ellas
Bates, Diddley went on to alter not 6nly his
guitar he -played a rectangular one but
also the sound of rock 'n' roll.
Diddley's famous "bomp ba-bomp
bomp, bomp bomp" rhythm is imitated in
many rock hits like Tom Petty's "American
Girl, The Who's "Magic Bus" and Bruce
Springsteen's "She's the One."
He was inducted into the Rock and Roll
Hall of Fame and awarded both a star on
Hollywood's Walk of Fame and a lifetime
achievement award in 1999 at the Grammy
Awards.
Diddley, who lived in the Gainesville
area for more than 20 years, was known in
the community for his kindness, said Buster
Lipham, owner of Lipham Music, where
Diddley frequently shopped.
Diddley occasionally played at schools
and fundraisers around Gainesville, Lipham
said.

thought Diddley's work is underappreciated
because so many artists covered his songs
and used his beats.
"He's one of the originals," Holtz said.
"There wasn't anything stuck-up about him.
He just loved music."

approximately 750 student orga-
nizations were accommodated in
the office.
With the change, seven tc
eight additional cubicles have
been created for other organiza-
tions.
Merging the offices will
also make space for the staff
of the new Director of Studeni

UF adds sustainability minor for fall semester


18-credit minor to complement a variety of majors


By MAGGIE LAWRENCE
Alligator Contributing Writer


A new minor in sustainability
studies will be available this fall
for UF students who want to try
their hands at ecologically friendly
practices in an academic setting.
The minor, offered through
the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences, is an interdisciplinary
program spanning multiple col-
leges and departments in an effort
to include as many majors as pos-
sible, said Les Thiele, UF political
science professor and the minor's
faculty adviser.
"It's not out of the question
that we could have hundreds and
hundreds, or even thousands, of
students taking it as a minor,"
Thiele said.
The minor's requirements
amount to an 18-credit-hour
program that includes a gateway
course, Facets of Sustainability,
and an optional capstone course,


Sustainability in Action, which has
a service learning, internship or
integrative research project com-
ponent, according to the proposal
prepared by a joint student-faculty
committee.
The remaining credits can be
earned from a list of courses di-
vided into four clusters: Ethics,
Culture and Human Behavior;
Economics, Law and Policy;
Production
UF Systems and
Academics the Built
Environment;
and Ecology and Environmental
Stewardship.
Students must complete one
course from each cluster, accord-
ing to the proposal.
"Students can apply for the cap-
stone course or substitute it with
an individually obtained intern-
ship with approval from Thiele.
Students who do not choose to
take the capstone course must
complete a fifth course from any of


the clusters.
SThose who have previously
taken classes within the required
clusters can apply those credits
retroactively toward receiving the
minor.
Internships and service-learn-
ing opportunities may be.Nffered
locally and on campus in a "town
and gown" effort, Thiele said.
Although not directly involved
with the minor's academic coor-
dination, many of the internships
will be provided through the
Office of Sustainability, which will
create a database of service-learn-
ing opportunities open to students
taking the capstone course, said
Dedee DeLongpre, the office's
director.
Plans for sustainability's aca-
demic future at UF may include a
graduate minor or certificate pro-
gram, but anything beyond that
seems unlikely.
This mindset is in contrast to
the programs offered at Arizona


State University, where students
can earn a minor, major, graduate
degree and doctorate degree in
sustainability, DeLongpre said.
"Maybe it's not obvious that
we're in real trouble as a human
species and a society," she said.
"The things that we rely on for life
itself are in jeopardy. There aren't


enough people telling that story."
Jade Ward, a UF psychology
senior, said she thinks the minor
is an amazing opportunity for
students.
"While sustainability isn't a
future career for me, it will be
great to graduate with an official
minor and incorporate what I have
learned into a way of life," Ward
said.

Fla. official calls for probe into rising gas prices


* UF PROF. SAYS ONE FACTOR IS
INCREASED WEALTH IN INDIA, CHINA.

By CHRISTOPHER MYERS
Alligator Writer

As gas prices in Gainesville climb
past the $4 mark, Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson has
called on Congress and the Bush admin-
istration to conduct an in-depth investiga-
tion into rising gasoline costs.
The investigation would be aimed at
finding the root cause of skyrocketing fuel
prices, whether it is increased wealth in
China and India or even price gouging at
the pumps.


"He's looking for a top-to-bottom thor-
ough investigation," said Terence McElroy,
department spokesman. '
McElroy said the investigation would
consider what roles private investors and
speculators play in the gasoline market-,
what roles gas companies play and other
potential factors.
"We just want to get to the bottom of
it," McElroy said.
UF economics professor Ma&i Rush
said a number of factors are contributing
to the rise in gas prices, including the
depreciation of the U.S. dollar and the
increased standard of living in China and
India.
"In China and India, you have people's
incomes rising 10 percent or so a year,"
Rush said, "and when they get to a certain


level, they want to buy a car."
Rush said that this increase in the
amount of cars worldwide increases the
demand for petroleum, which would
,,.. j cause a rise in the price of
"' gasoline. As these coun-
tries industrialize, they
also require more energy
J k to produce electricity,
i which sometimes comes
from oil.
L Rush said while oil
Hanrahan companies could poten-
tially increase the production of oil, they
probably wouldn't because they benefit
from the higher prices.
This means that the supply of oil will
remain somewhat fixed while the demand
will constantly increase.


Furthermore, Rush said that gas prices
won't continue to skyrocket indefinitely,
unless a natural disaster affects the pro-
duction of oil.
He added that China, India and the U.S.
are going through recessions, which will
consequently slow the increasing demand
for petroleum.
"They won't rise at the clip they have
risen over the past six months or so," Rush
said.
Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan
said the city is trying to come up with in-
novative ways to decrease the demand for
gasoline within Gainesville.
"What we're trying to do from the
city's perspective is to provide citizens
with alternate modes of transportation,"
Hanrahan said.

Textbook bill to help students save


Book info must be listed earlier


By ELIZABETH LEVA
Alligator Writer

Anew Florida law may provide
the solution to a dilemma that has
challenged bargain hunters for
years rushing to buy textbooks
at discounted prices before classes
begin.
Gov. Charlie Crist signed a bill
Wednesday requiring community
colleges and state universities to
post lists of required textbooks
and their International Standard
Book Numbers, or ISBN, on their
Web sites at least 30 days before
classes begin.
Kevin Reilly, UF Student Body
President, said providing the
information early gives students
time 'to explore Web, sites,. book-


stores, wholesalers and even
classmates to find the most rea-
sonably priced book.
Providing the ISBN elimi-
nates confusion students may
encounter when trying to locate
different editions and versions of
textbooks, Reilly added.
Bookstores will also be able to
offer higher buyback
State refunds for students
News because they will
know whether the
books will be used the next se-
mester, he added.
Reilly said seeing the proposal
passed into law excited him and
the rest of the Gator Party because
it is an initiative on the party's
platform.
, "This bill provides a lot of great


benefits for students and consum-
ers," he said.
Ron LaFace, a lobbyist rep-
resenting the UF student body,
said students and lobbyists have
pushed to get this law passed for
almost five years.
The bill was originally present-
ed as a request for tax exemption
on college textbooks.
It did not get passed because
it was determined to be too
costly when compared with the
relatively insignificant amount of
money it would save students,
LaFace said.
The bill evolved as ideas on
how to reform textbook purchas-
ing practices in the most effective
way changed, LaFace said.
"It is finally a law," he said.
"The results are just a matter of
.when it kicks in." '

The advent of the six-month
hurricane season arrived
Sunday, captivating the atten-
tion of UF weather experts and
emergency officials.
The season's first tropical
storm, named Arthur, dis-
solved quickly after making its
Atlantic debut Saturday.
But UF geography profes-
sor Corene Matyas said meteo-
rologists are on alert because
it is rare to have activity this
early in the season.
Matyas said she expects
normal to above-normal ac-
tivity this season from the
Atlantic Ocean Basin, which
spans the Atlantic Ocean,
the Gulf of Mexico and the
Caribbean Sea.
The season ends Nov. 30.
The National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
issued a 60 to 70 percent
chance of having 12 to 16
tropical storms, six to nine
hurricanes and two to five
intense hurricanes, defined as
those that have winds of more
than 111 mph.
The predictions may seem
threatening, but they should
not send citizens into a tizzy,
Matyas said.
"People erroneously take
these forecasts as how many
storms and hurricanes will
strike land," she said. "But
many dissipate before they
ever make landfall."
Because there is no way to
predict how many storms will
actually touch ground, Matyas
said people should prepare for
the worst.
Kenneth Allen, UF emer-
gency management coordina-
tor, said UF will be prepared
for as many storms as the


season may bring, despite the
challenges of securing a large
campus.
UF will add the Steinbrenner
Band Building to its list of hur-
ricane shelters, which includes
Southwest Recreation Center
and the Reitz Union Grand
Ballroom.
UF used those buildings
as shelters in 2004, when hur-
ricanes Frances, Jeanne and
Charley stormed through
Florida.
Construction on the band-
building is expected to wrap
up this summer.

"We are always working
to improve what we have
done in the past. This
year's improvements can
certainly make a differ-
ence."
Kenneth Allen
UF emergency management
coordinator

While most buildings are
constructed solidly enough
to withstand heavy impact,
some parts of campus, such
as Elmore Hall and the Health
Science Center, tend to flood
and require extra attention
during a storm, Allen said.
Depending on a storm's
proximity, UF can post up-
dates and alerts on its Web site
or send e-mails and text mes-
sages to students, faculty and
staff notifying them of evacau-
ations or canceled classes.
UF did not have the emer-
gency text messaging system
last hurricane season.
"We are always working to
improve what we have done in
the past," Allen said.
"This year's improvements,
can. certainly make a differ-,

City leaders discuss plans for 2009


* COMMISSIONERS FOCUS ON AFFORDABLE
HOUSING, SUSTAINABILITY PROJECTS.

By CHRISTOPHER MYERS
Alligator Staff Writer
The Gainesville City Commission discussed plans
to increase the amount of affordable, low-cost city
housing during a Monday workshop focused on the
city's plans and budget for the 2009 fiscal year.
Commissioner Jack Donovan said less than 10
percent of Gainesville's residences are considered "af-
fordable housing."
Donovan said taxes'collected from developers can
be put to use by creating incentives for building af-
fordable housing.
"For the private sector, profit is the bottom line,"
he said.
Commissioners also discussed trying to get busi-
nesses, including apartment complexes, to increase
recycling.
"I feel like our apartment complexes underuse
their recycling resources," Commissioner Lauren Poe
said.
The idea of the city providing vegetable waste
composts was also discussed, although Mayor Pegeen
Hanrahan said it is a trade-off because of the vermin
it attracts.
In addition to discussing upcoming plans, the


workshop gave new commissioners the opportunity
to voice their opinions.
Commissioner Thomas Hawkins said that ideal
development in Gainesville would be "pedestrian
oriented" with a large number of two-lane streets and
intersections in a grid system.
Hawkins referred to downtown Gainesville, east of
13th Street, as an ideal model for what the city should
look like.
He then contrasted downtown Gainesville with
the area around Butler Plaza, which has only three
roads surrounding it and large
parking lots.
Poe presented after Hawkins
-K iand emphasized eco-friendly proj-,
ects that would reduce energy con-
sumption.
He listed transportation as a big
energy consumer and suggested
Donovan more efficient bus routes, including
long-anticipated improvements to
the RTS system.
Commissioner Craig Lowe agreed with Poe, sug-
gesting that RTS move toward a grid-like system.
"We need to work toward making RTS more ef-
ficient for the user," Lowe said.
Many of the commissioners agreed that some of
the bus routes are long and needlessly meandering
and said making those routes more efficient would be
an important project to work on over the next year.


Library gets tune-up
Only two years after a $30-million makeover, Library West
administrators have realized some of the building's floors
cannot handle the pressure of being a campus hotspot.
The library's cork flooring on the first, second and third
floors will be replaced during the break between summer
terms, forcing the library to dose June 20 through June 29.
The cork tiles are peeling at the edges due to heavy foot
traffic, said Barbara Hood, the-library's spokeswoman.
"You can just see as you walk through the main traffic
areas that they're just not holding up the way
U F the architect and the builders thought they
Projects would," Hood said.
The new flooring will be made of marble
and granite recycled chips, she said.
An information booth will be set up in front of the library's
entrance during the construction period so students, faculty
and staff can check out reference materials. Borrowed items
can be returned to the drive-up book return or at another UF
library
Bill Covey, interim director for UF library support services,
said the project would be funded by money left over from
Library West's mammoth three-year renovation. The library
reopened Aug. 2,2006.
Covey said he did not expect the cost to be more than
$200,000.

Editorial

Mad Money

Surplus funds raise

serious questions
O ver the past couple of weeks, we have dedicated
copious editorial real estate to defending President
Bernie Machen's proposed $47 million budget cuts
as a necessary response to the Florida Legislature's abysmal
failure to fully fund the state's university system. It now
appears that we have been duped.
A recently released report commissioned by the United
Faculty of Florida suggests UF has plenty of cash on hand
to prevent (or at least postpone) faculty and staff layoffs, as
well as degree program termination or enrollment freezes.
According to the report, UF had an astounding $131 mil-
lion of unspent, unrestricted funds at the conclusion of the
2007 fiscal year. Furthermore, the report indicates that UF's
reserve funding has not dropped below $81 million in the
past five years, beginning with the 2003 fiscal year. These
unrestricted funds are legally available for use toward op-
erating costs, such as faculty and staff salaries, and other
expenses. The administration's reasoning for failing to use
its pecuniary surplus in these areas is at best disappointing
and at worst a disingenuous and duplicitous power play.
The administration contends that most of the money -
about $85 million has been set aside for UF's sustainabil-
ity programs and for new equipment, such as computers,
while the remaining $45 million is being saved in case of ad
emergency, such as a hurricane. The powers that be insist
the residual funds cannot be spent on saving jobs or degree
programs because doing so would amount to a one-time fix
for a long-term problem. This lackluster argument flies in
the face of UF's financial figures for the past five years.
What's more, the administration has mounted the hal-
low and nebulous defense that the $45 million reserve is the
minimum amount requisite to maintain "the best business
practices."
We're sorry, we must not have gotten the memo that says
running UF like a business that is, turning what amounts
to a profit every year for the past five years is the best
way to promote an environment conducive to higher edu-
cation. While it is not lost on us that UF's multibillion-dollar
budget and several thousand employees make adopting a
business-like disposition towards the operations manage-
ment of the university necessary, we roundly reject the as-
sertion that this fact requires the administration to embrace
the empty ethos of corporate America.
At UF, the bottom line is not profits, it is quality of edu-
cation, and the shareholders are not the Board of Trustees,
they are the students and faculty.
The similarities between the purportedly imperative
budget cuts now on the verge of realization and budgeting
tightening proposals of times past raise serious questions
about the veracity of the administration's claims. Is it pos-
sible the suits at Tigert Hall are exploiting the state fund-
ing crisis as cover to make long desired changes, changes
that under normal circumstances were too controversial to
implement? We can't know for certain.
What we do know is that transparency and shared-gov-
ernance has not been the modus operandi of the adminis-
tration during this painful budget-cutting process.
While we value the sentiment of saving for a rainy
day, it is incomprehensible to us that Machen and the UF
Administration could possibly be oblivious to the financial
maelstrom, tantamount to a torrential downpour, that our
university is suffering through at present.
It is in these tough times that we need principled,
prescient and perspicacious leadership. Up to now, those
entrusted with the immense responsibility of providing
our university with such leadership have failed us on all
counts.

Letters to the Editor
Reaction to cartoon was unfounded
I was extremely offended and surprised
by LaShanta Harris' letter published in the
May 27 edition of the Alligator regarding
the cartoon with black hands.
I don't understand what has to be done
in this country to avoid being racist!
Would it be okay if the cartoon had
white hands? Or red? Or yellow? Would it
still be racist then?
Racism is truly kept alive by those who
look for it.
I never even noticed that the hands
were black.
And I'm sure I wouldn't care what color
they were.
To limit someone's creative ability for
the risk of it coming off racist is ridicu-
lous.
But I guess the solution is simple: pur-
ple hands from now on.

Editorial on Clinton comments misguided
Commenting on Hillary Clinton's
RFK gaffe in the May 27 edition of The
Alligator, the editorial board mentions
that Clinton could have provided more re-
cent examples of Democratic nominations
running on into June, in particular the
Carter-Kennedy race and the Mondale-
Hart race.
The editorial board points out the sinis-
ter fact that she didn't mention those rac-
es. I'm no mind reader, but I can think of a
couple reasons why a Democratic hopeful
might not want to associate her campaign
in any way with candidates who were
roundly defeated by Republicans.
Her options were, therefore, quite
limited. Maybe before accusing someone
of something "abominable" or "unspeak-
able," the editorial board ought to con-
sider other possible explanations for the
questioned conduct.

UF ACADEMICS

UF documentary creators spread story, push for change


By JESSIE COLEMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

When it comes to filming docu-
mentaries, Boaz Dvir and Rebecca
Goldman are fast learners as
fast as 60 mph.
Dvir spent one of his first days
as cameraman in February 2007
hanging from the side of a Jeep
Cherokee speeding down U.S.
Highway 19 while about 5,000
motorcycles whizzed by. The
bikers rode for Jessie's Memorial
Ride, an event to honor 9-year-old
Jessica Lunsford of Homosassa,
Fla., who was raped and mur-


dered in 2005 by a sex offender
living across the street.
Dvir, a UF graduate student,
dangled precariously from the
passenger side window at times
and stood halfway out the win-
dow at others, filming across the
car roof.
All the while, co-director and
classmate Goldman worked her
own magic behind the wheel,
careful to avoid not only the bik-
ers but the police patrolling the
event. The duo had not asked
permission to ride alongside the
procession.
"I did some pretty maverick

his office in Weimer Hall Tuesday with graduate Rebecca Goldman.


driving, and he did some pretty
maverick acrobatics," Goldman
said.
Eventually, police stopped the
daring cinematographers, but
they talked their way out of it,
Dvir said. ,
The ride footage from about a
year and half ago was the first of
more than 130 hours of video that
Dvir, 40, and Goldman, 24, shot
documenting the life of Jessica's
father, Mark Lunsford.
Dvir, a graduate student of
UF's Documentary Institute, and
Goldman, a recent institute alum-
na, showed a 46-minute version of
the film at an on-campus screen-
ing on May 2. The documentary,
called "Jessie's Dad," has already
received invitations to two major
film festivals.
Dvir, also director of com-
munications for UF's College of
Journalism and Communications,
will pitch the film to TV produc-
ers at the sixth annual Silverdocs
Film Festival on June 17 as one
of six student documentaries
invited nationwide. The panel
will include representatives from
PBS and the Discovery Channel,
among others.
In August, the pair will travel
to Colorado Springs to screen the
film during the University Film
and Video Association's annual
conference.
For Dvir and Goldman, the
festivals are launching pads for
the film's message, one of a man
dedicated to intensifying laws
and restrictions against sexual
predators. In the documentary,
Lunsford fights to pass Jessica's
Law in all 50 states. Atleast some


part of the act has been passed in
34 states, Goldman said.
"We want as many people as
possible to see it," Dvir said. "It
can raise awareness, get people
talking, get people thinking and
maybe save a child."
Dvir, who is also from
Homosassa, started following the
story when his small hometown,
about 75 miles north of Tampa,
began appearing in news articles.
Over time, Dvir's interest in the
case grew to a fascination with
the character of Lunsford, a truck
driver with a 10th-grade educa-
tion who was fast becoming an
outspoken political activist.

"He transformed in front of
our cameras. We were very
lucky to be able to capture
that."
Boaz Dvir
UF College of Journalism and
Communications director of
communications

"He transformed in front of
our cameras," Dvir said. "We
were very lucky to be able to cap-
ture that."
Dvir and Goldman followed
Lunsford on trips to* promote
Jessica's Law in Washington, D.C.,
Utah and several cities in Florida,
as well as on a family reunion to
Ohio.
They spent their $5,500 budget
allotted by the institute. Then
they were awarded $2,000 in
grant money from two separate
prizes never before won by UF
students the Carole Fielding
Student Grant and the Direct


Cinema Limited Outstanding
Documentary Award.
Finally, they started funding
out-of-pocket. Neither kept close
track, but together they have
spent more than $3,000.
After countless hours of film-
ing, traveling and much sacrificed
sleep, editing presented a new
challenge letting go of trea-
sured shots.
"It's a painful process," Dvir
said. "You throw away a lot of ba-
bies. If it didn't fit, it had to go."
Goldman said the process is
not over. The two plan to film
more scenes before taking their
finalized version of the film to
festivals.
"You're never done making a
film," she said. "People take years
to make a documentary. We had a
year and a half, and we were bat-
tling this learning curve along the
way."
Despite any disadvantages, the
documentary has already had an
impact.
For some, like UF journalism
professor Mike Foley, the film
changed opinions of Lunsford,
who was widely criticized for his
motives behind Jessica's Law.
"I wondered before I saw it
whether he was a spotlight-seek-
ing phony taking advantage of the
situation," Foley said.
Foley, who went to the May 2
screening as a friend of Dvir, left
impressed with not only the docu-
mentary, but also with Lunsford,
he said.
"I think it did everything a
documentary's supposed to do,"
he said. "It really gives you a per-
spective on the whole thing."


Events aim to unite community


JUVENILE, from page 1

the community against heated,
growing rivalries.
The first event, "Operation
Respect Yourself," was held
Saturday at the Northeast Pool.
The aim of the program was to
teach conflict resolution skills that
emphasize walking away from
fights and having self-respect before
respect for a gang or neighborhood,
Scott said.
Orlando Alvarez, a GPD juvenile
resource detective, said he views
the spread of national gangs within
Gainesville as a problem that needs
to be addressed along with the es-
tablishment of local gangs.
The Crips, the Bloods, the Latin
Kings and the Gangster Disciples
are all showing a growing presence
in east Gainesville, Alvarez said,
though they are nowhere near as
dominant as they are in larger cit-
ies.
Detective James McCollum, who
also specializes in juvenile crime, said
the city of Gainesville cannot afford'to


ignore the increasing membership.
"Gainesville looks quiet and small
when you're coming from Miami,"
McCollum said. "But we still need to
be careful or this issue will sneak up -
on us."
John Alexander, who helps oper-
ate the Reichert House, an after-
school program for at-risk youth in
east Gainesville, spoke at the event
about his experiences growing up in
Gainesville and trying
LOCal to avoid the entrenched
News neighborhood groups.
"When you don't
get a sense of who you are from your
parents because they're not around,
you look to your neighborhood for
your identity," Alexander said in an
interview after the event.
He said young people risk so
much to defend their neighborhood
pride because they are struggling
with an identity crisis and because
there are few positive activities for
them to partake in.
"We've got to provide things to
do or else kids will find 'extracur-
ricular activities' on the streets," he
said.

Pitchers shine in tournament

W" M SIX OF THE EIGHT TEAMS HAD
ALL-AMERICAN HURLERS.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

OKLAHOMA CITY What do UF,
UCLA, Alabama, Texas A&M, Arizona
State and Virginia Tech have in com-
mon?
They were six of the eight teams in
the Women's College World Series.
But more importantly, they each had
a first-team All-American pitcher.
Of the six pitchers who made the list,
every last one of them led their team to
-Oklahoma City.
Alabama is the only one of those
schools with two All-American pitchers.
Freshman Kelsi Dunne made the third
team for the Crimson Tide and handled
the majority of her team's innings,
but sophomore first-teamer *Charlotte
Morgan the nation's RBI leader -
posted the lowest ERA for her team.
The large number of supremely tal-
ented hitters who dug in at Hall of Fame
Stadium over the last week only made
the importance of a team's pitcher more
apparent.
The Gators posted the highest run to-
tal by a team in a single game when they
scored six against the Aggies.
When the Gators built a 4-1 lead in
that game, A&M coach Jo Evans pulled
Harrison Diamond / Aigator her All-American Megan Gibson to save
UF pitcher Stacey Nelson throws a pitch during the Gators' win over her for game two.

Gators see bright future ahead


By SHANNON McCARTHY
Alligator-Staff Writer
smccarthy@alligator.org

The Gators saw their season end on Saturday after-
noon at the hands of their in-state rivals, but one thing
the Seminoles couldn't snuff out was the promise of a
bright future.
Though the 17-11 thrashing UF suffered at the hands
of Florida State will be the lasting memory of the sea-
son until baseball starts anew, coach Kevin O'Sullivan
hopes that what his team accomplished won't be over-
looked.
"I'm awfully proud of the way they competed this
entire year," he said. "No one thought that they'd be in
a regional when this thing started. They picked us to
finish eleventh in the league, and we ended up finish-


"I don't want this last game to be a defin-
ing thing about our team. I want our team to
be remembered as a team that battled and
hopefully started a long tradition of getting
into the postseason year in and year out."

we'd do, and those are the things that we'll try to reflect
back on and feel good about.

OKLAHOMA CITY- Sometimes, winning really
isn't everything.
I watched Stacey Nelson tear up during the post-
game press conference
Sunday night after los-
ing to Texas A&M.
Not because she
had lost the game, but
because she wasn't
Mike DiFerdinando ready to say goodbye
-Mike'd Up to her friend Mary
mdiferdinando@alligator.org Ratliff.
She wasn't ready
for it all to be over.
Not yet.
"I'm not sad about the loss as much as I'm sad
about it being over," Nelson said. "I'm sad about
losing Mary Ratliff (the team's only senior). Looking
back on the season, playing with all the girls was just
enough for me to leave here and be happy with what
we did."
Maybe winning a championship isn't everything.
Maybe the journey really is more important than the
destination. Just maybe, this last weekend really was
everything that the UF softball team could have ever
asked for.
The Gators have been knocked out of the
Women's College World Series, but the strides that
the UF softball program has taken in a year are re-
markable.
At the start of the season, their goal was just to
make the WCWS, but after coming so dose to a
championship that goal was dearly surpassed.
It would be hard to imagine that after winning
three consecutive WCWS games and sending home
NCAA Player of the Year Angela Tincher and UCLA
All-American pitcher Anjelica Selden in back-to-
back games, the Gators didn't think that they could
go all the way.
Maybe they were too young?
Maybe they're just one year away?
Well, maybe. Regardless, it shouldn't take away
from what they have accomplished. In their very
first trip to the WCWS, the Gators went toe to toe
with the most elite programs and the most elite play-
ers in the game.
After this weekend, one thing is for sure UF
softball is on the map.
Did you happen to watch any of the games dur-
ing the weekend?
Perhaps you tuned in long enough to hear

Coach discontent with finish


* THE GATORS FINISHED 11TH AT THE
NCAA CHAMPIONSHIPS.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

UF men's golf coach Buddy Alexander called
some of them "trainwrecks."
That's probably an accurate description of a
final round where your team shot +27.
And that's why your coach was quite disap-
pointed. The Gators, ranked No. 6 going into
NCAAs, finished a humbling 11th Saturday at the
national championships.
But at least UF sans seniors Tyler Brown and
Manuel Villegas gets to come back next year
and try again. And at least they now know what
not to do.
"The kids we've got have to learn from this,"
Alexander said. "This team needs to be tougher
mentally. I don't think anybody quit."
But this year's championship round certainly
will be a sour spot in their minds for a long time.
"[The last round] was a disappointing day,"
Alexander said. "We didn't play well, with the
exception of Billy [Horschel]."
As he almost always does, Horschel came up
with at least a decent showing.
UF's two-time All-American junior finished
sixth overall with a score of seven over 295. He
led the day after the second round, but like all his
other teammates, the final round wasn't as pretty.
He still, however, shot four birdies and five par
shots in the final round. And if he had been more
consistent, he probably would have earned a top-
five finish.
Horschel never fell below 10th while at West
Lafayette, Ind.
"You certainly can't blame him," Alexander
said of UF's lone bright spot.


But you can blame some of the others, unfortu-
nately for the Gators.
Tyson Alexander was the team's next top fin-
isher as he tied for 43rd.
Alexander had a decent first and second
round, shooting 75 and 74, but fell apart later
on in the tournament. He had a score of 80 in the
third and 78 on the final day of competition. He
finished +17.
Brown, one of the few seniors who had been
doing well, fell apart in his last collegiate action.
He didn't have a round below 76, and started out
in the back of the pack with a score of 83. Brown
finished in a very disappointing tie
for 73rd.
"We didn't play particularly
well on the front nine," Alexander
Golf said of the play in the final round.
"It was a humbling day. I didn't
do a great job of coaching."
Humbling indeed.
Villegas finished tied for 50th while going +20,
and Will Strickler ended the tournament 63rd
with a +24.
UCLA won the national title, holding off sec-
ond-place Stanford by just one stroke. Southern
California was just one stroke behind the Cardinal.
The Bruins also won the individual title as Kevin
Chappell finished an impressive -2 throughout
the four-round tournament.
Going into next season the Gators will still
have Horschel and will have gained experience
too, as Alexander will be a junior and Strickler
will be a senior.
UF had an up-and-down fall, but was more
consistent in the spring.
The Gators beat FSU in a dual meet and
finished tied for second at the Southeastern
Conference Championships. They just scraped by
at the Regional Championships, finishing tied for
fourth and earning an NCAA bid.


MIKE, from page 16

ESPN's John Kruk wax poetic
lines about Dippin' Dots.
Or maybe you caught a
glimpse of the World Wide
Leader's Holly Rowe practi-
cally sweating to death in the
Oklahoma sun.
But if you were lucky, you got
a chance to see what I saw.
You saw UF left fielder
Francesca Enea blasting home
runs against Texas A&M and
making one of most spectacular
diving catches of the entire tour-
nament.
You saw Mary Ratliff dance
her way into the introduction
of SportsCenter after driving in
the game-winning run against
Virginia Tech.
You probably saw Stacey
Nelson pitch more innings in
four days (39) than you ever
thought was humanly possible.
Maybe you saw Tiffany
DeFelice take an at-bat against
Louisiana-Lafayette long
enough for me to go to the
bathroom find and plug in my
lap top charger and still realize
that she had been at the plate for
what seemed like an eternity.
She fouled off 15 straight
pitches, 21 in all, before finally
popping out.
Maybe you realized just how
incredibly athletic these women
are. I know I did.


Before the tournament began,
UF coach Tim Walton said that
his team had yet to accomplish
anything on a national stage,
and the only way for his pro-
gram to be viewed in the same
light as the UCLA's and the
Arizona's of the world was to
make it to the WCWS.
Now, there is no question that
the Gators can compete with the
royalty of college softball.
And the scariest part is, this is
only the beginning.
The Gators return every
member of their team except
one.
So, what does the future hold
for UF softball?
Well, it's hard to say.
Is it possible that they could
improve on this year's NCAA
record-setting 70-5 season?
It would be hard, but then
again, who thought that it was
possible to only lose five games
in a softball season?
Even Walton doubts whether
or not the feat can be repeated.
"I don't know if anyone,will
win 70 games again," he said.
What is certain is that this
isn't the last you will see of
Walton and his Gators.
They will undoubtedly be the
heavy favorite heading into next
season.
The only question is whether
or not next year will be the year
they win it all.

Record-setting players will return next year to contend for nat'l title


SOFT, from page 1

the Gators had never won a
Southeastern Conference tour-
nament title or made a WCWS
appearance.
This year's squad won the
SEC regular-season and tourna-
ment crowns before accomplish-
ing their yearlong goal. Those
were just some of the firsts for the
Gators in 2008. Most importantly,
they did all of this together.
"We didn't win a national
championship, but it's the first
time that Florida has gone to the
College World Series," Nelson
said. "We've just done so many
other great things this season,
and it's just a team to remember.
Everybody just comes together
and plays, and that's what I'm
going to remember."
In addition to establishing the
program on a national level, the
Gators rewrote the university's
record book with their individual
and team accomplishments. The
offense was vastly improved
from 2007 and set record team


marks in home runs, RBIs, runs,
doubles, hits, on base percentage,
slugging percentage and batting
average. Coupled with a record-
low 0.92 team ERA, the dynamic
offense provided plenty of run
support for Nelson and freshman
Stephanie Brombacher.
Five players earned Louisville
Slugger NFCA All-American
honors tied with the Sun
Devils for the most in the nation.
Nelson and junior first base-
man Ali Gardiner made the first
team, sophomore left fielder
Francesca Enea and freshman
second baseman Aja Paculba
were named to the second team,
and junior center fielder Kim
Waleszonia earned third-team
honors.
Before this season, UF never
had a first-team All-American
and only had three previous se-
lections of any kind, and that in-
cludes Nelson and Waleszonia's
selections from last season.
Gardiner set single-season
records in batting average and
on base percentage while tying
Waleszonia's hit record from


a year ago. Enea posted new
season highs in RBIs and total
bases en route to tying former
UF catcher Kristen Butler for the
most home runs (17).
At the top of the lineup,
Waleszonia and Paculba both
broke the runs scored record (49)
by crossing home plate 62 and 61
times, respectively. Basically, if
there was a record to be broken,
the UF softball team broke it this
season.
"She looks like she's
played third base her
whole life. She's one of the
reasons we're successful
right now."
Tim Walton
UF softball coach on Corrie Brooks

As impressive as all those sta-
tistics are, the SEC Pitcher of the
Year broke almost every mean-
ingful single-season and career
record during her more than 350
innings inside the circle.
And next year every single


one of those record-setting play-
ers will be back to challenge for
a national title, which isn't good
news for the rest of the nation.
The Gators will lose just senior
right fielder Mary Ratliff for their
encore performance. Ratliff was
one of the team's leaders, and she
had a knack for getting hits in
big situations. She hit the game-
winning home run in the SEC
Tournament and also had the
winning hit against the Hokies
in the WCWS keeping UF's
season alive.
"We only have one senior
leaving, but she means so much
to the team and to me personally
as a friend," Nelson said.
- Though they lose Ratliff's
clutch bat, the Gators will wel-
come freshman Shaunice Harris
back to the field next season
after she was forced to sit out
all season with a torn anterior
cruciate ligament. Harris started
three games for the Gators this
season before her injury opened
up a spot for Corrie Brooks. But
that didn't end up being so bad
after all as Brooks' defense-and


recently her offense-has been
a huge bonus for UF's record-
breaking season.
"Corrie Brooks has played
phenomenal," Walton said at
the WCWS. "She looks like she's
played third base her whole life.
She's one of the reasons we're
successful right now."
Junior catcher Kristina
Hilberth and freshman shortstop
Megan Bush, who hit 13 home
runs including a go-ahead bomb
against Cal in Super Regional
play, round out the rest of the
starters coming back for UF next
season.
When the Gators resume play
again in 2009, a familiar SEC foe
could prove to be their tough-
est competition anywhere in
the nation. Alabama's Charlotte
Morgan joins Nelson as the only
two first-team All-American
pitchers returning to college soft-
ball next year.
The Crimson Tide are respon-
sible for one of the Gators' five
loses and made a WCWS appear-
ance of their own, also bowing
out after a semifinal matchup.

Ratliff finishes career with integral performances


Senior contributed leadership on, off field


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

OKLAHOMA CITY Almost
as soon as the Texas A&M players
had stormed the field to celebrate
their defeat of No. 1 UF in the
Women's College World Series,
the fans, media and players were
already talking about next year.
But for senior right fielder Mary
Ratliff, there is no next year.
For Ratliff, the lone senior on


the team, this is the end of the
line. I
The girl from Mt. Sterling, Ky,
was brought to tears after her team
was eliminated by the Aggies for
the second-consecutive season.
The Gators were bounced from
last year's tournament by A&M in
the super regional round.
Her numbers were not astro-
nomical. She finished the year bat-
ting .296 with 9 home runs and 48
RBIs, but her contributions to her
team cannot be overlooked.


Without her leadership, there is
no telling what would have come
of the Gators' 2008 season;
She also produced on the field.


Softball

beat Alabama


Ratliff came
up with seem-
ingly every big
hit the Gators
needed this sea-
son, including
a grand slam to
and win UF's first


Southeastern Conference tourna-
ment title.


Her most heroic moment likely
came when she pounded an RBI
double to beat Virginia Tech in
the ninth inning of an elimination
game in the Women's College
World Series.
"How many games has she won
for us this year? You can count
them 10. She's been so dutch,"
UF coach Tim Walton said.
As good as she was on the field,
she was even better off of it.
From sending out mass text
messages to the team about events


to dealing with a coaching e
after her freshman year (Karen
Johns to Walton), she's,been
through about as much as one
player can in four years.
Ratliff was named to the SEC
Honor Roll each of her four years.
Though her career is over, she
is proud that she will always be a
partof UF softball.
She's certainly left her mark on
one of the most up-and-ctming
programs in the country.
"The best part of it is that I can
always say that when Florida re-
ally started to be a really big-time
program I was there," Ratliff said.


UF heads in right direction for 2009


BASE, from page 16


team that battled and hopefully started a long
tradition of getting into the postseason year
in and year out."
In many ways, Saturday's elimination
game was a microcosm of the entire season,
highlighting the weaknesses that O'Sullivan
pointed out from the beginning.
"Going into the year, we knew that our
pitching depth would be a big question mark
for us," he said. "We only have eight pitchers
that have significant innings for us."
Only nine pitchers have logged more than
nine innings of work this season. Injuries
only made the pitching depth, or lack thereof,
more glaring.
Next year's recruiting class should help
that situation. Eight of the 14 signees are
pitchers. The Gators will also look for Chas
Spottswood, Kevin Chapman and Justin
Poovey to return from injuries.
But there will be other positions to fill.
Infielders Brandon McArthur and Jon
Townsend, designated hitters Bryson Barber
and Dustin Bamberg and reliever Josh
Edmondson are all graduating. Shortstop
Cole Figueroa will most likely be lost to the
MLB Draft, while starter Patrick Keating
could also move on if he is drafted high
enough. Redshirt junior Stephen Locke is still
unsure if he will return.
Questions remain about next season, but
one thing is for certain: the UF program is
headed in the right direction.
O'Sullivan's first season as coach was


a marked improvement over the last two
years. The meager pitching staff improved
from a league-worst 5.27 ERA in 2007 to 4.11
this year, good enough for fourth-best in the
Southeastern Conference. And after two years
of .500 play, this season's squad finished ten
games above .500.
But most importantly, O'Sullivan guided
the team back to the NCAA Tournament for
the first time since 2005, a place they expect
to be every year.


McArthur expects the
Gators to reach that goal
often under the direction of
the new coaching staff.
"I kind of wish I was a
freshman all over again," he
said, "because I very much
see a lot of respect coming
for this school in the future


Keating


and this team going a long way.
"The fans here have gotten a glimpse of
what is unfortunately going to happen when
I'm gone. They're really going to get this pro-
gram going. Hopefully this is for many, many
years to come so I can say that I was part of
the first team to make it back to the postsea-
son with this coaching staff."
Second baseman Clayton Pisani will be
back for his junior season and is excited about
what lies ahead.
"This program is going in the right direc-
tion," he said. "I'm proud as ever to be a
Gator. I'm proud to play for Coach. I'm proud
to play with guys like Brandon. I'm excited
to look ahead and what the future could pos-
sibly be for the program."


Gators struck out 49 times in WCWS


PITCHER, from page 16

In 2007, there were two extra-inning games
at the WCWS.
UF's 1-0 loss in nine innings was the
third extra-inning game the Gators played
in Oklahoma City and the second that went
scoreless into the ninth.
"We're definitely trying to break
the College World Series strikeout
record, that was one of our goals
coming in."
Tim Walton
UF softball coach

The incredible strikeout totals are another
testament to the high level of pitching.
j / L f;I tt,, ,*,A ,, A, ,


UF struck out 327 times over the course of
the season.
Thanks, in part, to NCAA Player of the
Year Angela Tincher's 19-strikeout perfor-
mance one short of the WCWS record
- the Gators piled up 15 percent (49) of those
in World Series play.
"We're definitely trying to break the
College World Series strikeout record, that
was one of our goals coming in," UF coach
Tim Walton joked.
"Unfortunately, it was for our pitchers."
Look no further than the championship
series to determine what wins titles.
Aggies ace Megan Gibson is the Big 12
Pitcher of the Year and Sun Devils ace Katie

UF wins six events in regional


UF track and field's Mariam Kevkhishvili throws a shot put on
the Percy Beard Track during the 2007 Pepsi Florida Relays.


STAFF REPORT

It was d6jA vu in Tallahassee for the UF track and
field teams this weekend.
When all was said and done in the NCAA East
Regional on Saturday, the Gators had matched their
regional finishes from a year ago with the men placing
and the women placing third.
UF won six events on the day.
In all, 14 athletes and all three relays qualified for
the NCAA Outdoor Championships in Des Moines,
Iowa, on June 11-14.
"We had a great weekend overall," coach Mike
Holloway said. .
"I'm very proud of both teams. We stress being a
quality team across the board, they went out and got
the job done today. To win six events and compete well
in a lot of other events, speaks volumes of both of these
teams."
The women's team finished with 82 points on the
weekend, scoring 60 points on Saturday alone.
It was a major improvement from the year before,
when the squad tallied just 49 points in their third-
place finish.
Lakecia Ealey led the way for the Gators, winning
the 100-meter dash just an hour after helping UF de-
fend its title in the women's 4x100-meter relay. Ealey,
Abigail David, Dominique McLeggan and Natalie
Knight circled the oval in 43.79 seconds, their second-
fastest time of the year.
Mariam Kevkhishvhili also claimed the victory in
the shot put, recording five of the top six throws in the
competition.
Lindsay Sundell also had an impressive perfor-


mance, shaving nearly a second off of her season best
to finish second in the women's 3,000-meter steeple-
chase.
But the UF men wouldn't be outdone. They scored
52 points on the final day of competition, giving them
68 points on the weekend to finish behind champion
Florida State.
"I'm very proud of both teams. We stress
being a quality team across the board, they
went out and got the job done today. To win
six events and compete well in a lot of other
events, speaks volumes of both of these
teams."
Mike Holloway
UF track and field coach

The Gators registered victories in the 4x400-meter
relay, as well as from Wes Stockbarger in the discus
and Carlos Phillips in the 800-meter run.
Phillips' time of 1:46.70 ranks fourth in UF history
and is the third-fastest time run by an American in
2008. The sophomore shaved over a second off of his
previous personal record of 1:48.23, which he set in
Friday's qualifying.
Chris Rainey, Terrell Wilks, Jeremy Hall and
Bernard Middleton finished fourth in the short relay
with a time of 39.64, just off their season best.
In the men's 100-meter final, Hall ran a 10.80 into
a headwind, edging out defending NCAA champion
Walter Dix of FSU to finish in second. Wilks finished
fifth with a time of 10.33.
