BOG wants a hand in picking presidents


By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Writer
When the Florida Board of
Governors meets today, state uni-
versity presidents and boards of
trustees will pay dose attention.
One of the hot topics on the


agenda will be a new regulation
that would give the Board of
Governors, the State University
System's highest governing body, a
say in the selection and evaluation
of school presidents. Those duties
currently belong to each universi-
ty's board of trustees.


Some presidents, including UF
President Bernie Machen, want
more time to calcu-
State late the next move in
News the board game.
"Our position is
that this topic needs much discus-
sion, and we encourage slowing


down the process," Machen wrote
in an e-mail.
Bill Edmonds, Board of
Governors spokesman, said the
regulation is a "modest" proposal
that should have been in place from
the start.
"The constitution of Florida


holds the Board of Governors re-
sponsible for the university system,
yet we are not selecting the key
players," Edmonds said.
The new rules would place two
board members on presidential se-
lection committees and would ask

The Alachua County Sheriff's Office is planning to

The murder case was officially closed when Rolling, ... ''

Fla. ban on salvia


set to begin in July


* POSSESSION OF THE
DRUG WILL BE A FELONY.

ByTRACYSHANK
Alligator Contributing Writer

Beginning July 1, Salvia
divinorum, a hallucinogenic
drug, will no longer be legal in
the state of Florida.
A bill passed by the legisla-
ture makes possession of the
drug a third-degree felony,
punishable by up to five years
in jail and a fine of $5,000.
"People try it once, and
that's it," said Patrick Patton,
owner of Modern Age Tobacco
& Gift Shop, where salvia is


currently sold. "I've never had
repeat customers."
Salvia is a member of the
sage family, whose leaves can
be used in their raw, pow-
dered or extract form.
It can be in-
State gested by smok-
News ing, vaporizing
or chewing and
induces a short-lived ine-
briated state with intense
feelings of depersonaliza-
tion, according to an ar-
ticle in the medical journal
"Pharmacopsychiatry."
Patton said his University
Avenue store would have the
drug off of shelves the day be-
fore the bill goes into effect.


LOCAL

Officials spell out their support


By AMYLYNN DAWSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

The banquet hall of a local
hotel erupted with laughter as
Alachua County Sheriff Sadie
Darnell began to spell "ovifer-
ous."
"O-V-I-E-R," she stammered.
"Wait, can I start over?"
The Partnership for Stronger
Families, an Alachua-based
nonprofit organization, held
the Executive Spelling Bee on
Tuesday at the Best Western
Gateway Grand hotel. The 24
participants were local celebri-
ties, including Darnell, Mayor
Pegeen Hanrahan, Florida
Rep. Charles Chestnut and sev-
eral Partnership for Stronger
Families administrators.
Money collected from $65
ticket sales and donations went
to the organization to help fund
programs for Alachua children


in foster care.
"This is a great event,"
said Jim Stringfellow, the
Alachua chair of Partnership
for Stronger Families. "We look
forward to making it annual."
"This is a great event.
We look forward to mak-
ing it annual."
Jim Stringfellow
Partnership for Stronger Fami-
lies chair

The competition consisted
of eight three-member teams.
.Hanrahan and her team proved
to be strong spellers in their
matching black outfits with
coral scarves.
"Lackadaisical. L-A-
C-K-A-D-A-I-S-I-C-A-L.
Lackadaisical," Hanrahan re-
cited correctly. She high-fived
her team excitedly.


By the ninth round of the
competition, only two teams
remained.
Hanrahan led her team
against Ester Tibbs, circuit ad-
ministrator for the Department
of Children and Families, and
her squad. When asked to spell
"zooxanthella," a type of algae,
Tibbs strode to the microphone
and confidently spelled the
word correctly.
Guests shook their heads in
disbelief, but Donna Jordan, a
client relations specialist for
the department, did not seem
surprised.
"She's a great boss and a
very good speller," Jordan said.
"She's so competitive that she's
been practicing her spelling."
In the final round of the
competition, Tibbs' trio
clinched the victory after
Hanrahan's team failed to spell
"acronychal" correctly.

Subleasers hard to find during summer months


* MANY STUDENTS STRUGGLE
TO FIND PAYING TENANTS.

By JENNA LANIA
Alligator Writer

If subleasing in Gainesville was
a dub, it would be the type of dub
where you have to know someone
to get in.
Subleasing is a good option for
students who sign long leases, es-
pecially in the summer when many
students leave Gainesville.
*The leaser signs a contract with
someone to take on the responsibili-
ties of the lease, including rent, utili-
ties and any damage caused.
But if the leaser can't find a sub-
leaser, the rent is still due.
Grace-Anne Stimpson, a UF nurs-
ing sophomore, met Genae Wilburn,
a UF biochemistry senior, one night
when she was visiting a friend who
lived with Wilbum.
Wilburn, who was moving to
Jacksonville for a summer intern-
sliip, needed someone to sublease
her room, and Stimpson needed
somewhere to stay because her lease
did not begin until August. So they
signed a mutual subleasing contract.
According to the contract,
Stimpson can use all of Wilbum's
furniture, the bathroom and half of
the closet.
Stimpson said she doesn't feel
awkward living in Wilburn's room.
"It's not like I'm living here for
free," she said. "I'm paying for it."
Stimpson lives among all of
Wilbum's stuff, she sees all of
Wilbum's pictures on the wall, she

sleeps in Wilbum's bed, she brushes
her teeth in Wilbum's sink, and
she stores her clothes in Wilburn's
closet.
"It doesn't really bother me," she
said. "I have my own pictures up
too."
Wilbum was able to find a sub-
leaser, but many leasers with sum-
mer plans outside of Gainesville
don't get the same opportunity.
"They never really explained
the whole truth of things."
Elsie Laguerre
UF alumna

Finding someone to sublease is
a daunting task, said Jon Adcock,
assistant general counsel for UF
Student Legal Services.
"The biggest problem seems to
be finding someone to sublease,"
Adcock said, "because we have so
many people that get stuck with
leases or are trying to get out for one
reason or another, and that's usually
the only sure way to get out."
Landlords often make renters be-
lieve that subleasing is an easy way
out of a lease, he said.
"Well, next summer comes along,
and there is nobody to sublease,"
Adcock said. "The numbers just
Don't add up. There's hundreds and
hundreds of people who are stuck
with leases compared to people who
are looking for a place just for the
summer months."
Students who can't find someone
to sublease are forced to pay rent
for a vacant apartment or stay in
Gainesville.


Danielle Johnson, a UF nursing
junior, originally planned on taking
summer courses, so she signed a
least that would extend through the
summer.
But when Johnson's plans
changed, her lease did not.
"I wish that I would have been
able to sign a shorter lease," she
said.
Johnson thought it was going to
be easy to sublease for the summer,
but the few prospective subleasers
who called said her rent was too
expensive.
She is currently at home in
Panama City and still paying rent for
her apartment in Gainesville.
Her rent check is $595 a month,
and she is willing to let someone
sublease her place if they will pay
even a percentage of the bill.
Elsie Laguerre just graduated
from UF after majoring in health
science and planned on moving to
Orlando to start her career, but she
couldn't because of her 12-month
lease, she said.
When Laguerre signed the lease
last year, her complex told her the
apartment would sublease quickly.
But that was not true, she said.
"They never really explained the
whole truth of things," she said.
Laguerre began offering the sub-
lease in January and her price has
decreased from $509, to $450, to $400,
to its current price of $380, a loss of
$129 a month.
She even offers the lease in her all-
girl apartment to guys anything to
get someone to sublease, she said.
"I'm ready to start life," Laguerre
said, "but it's just so sad that this
apartment is holding me back."

Without players, homeless soccer team only a dream


* A LOCAL MAN IS TRYING
TO ORGANIZE THE SQUAD.

By CHRISTOPHER MYERS
Alligator Writer

The soccer cleats are new, and
the uniforms are clean.
But no homeless people have
volunteered to wear them.
Anthony Lyons, manager
of the Gainesville Community
Redevelopment Agency, has been
trying to start a local homeless
soccer program since early fall
2007.
However, Lyons is facing a ma-
jor problem: getting local home-
less people to participate.
"I first wanted to take the ap-
proach that I needed uniforms,
socks, shoes, a place to play and a
soccer ball," Lyons said.
"Things of that sort were all
things I was able to accomplish,
and the last piece was getting the
actual players. I actually thought


that would be the easiest thing,
and it's turned out to be the hard-
est thing."
Lyons has worked on this proj-
ect in his spare time without any
help from the city.
He said the soccer program is
a nontraditional way to get the
homeless feeling healthier and
more confident.
"It brings people together," he
said. "It has people working as
a team. It gives them a place to
go on a regular basis, and it will
allow them to travel around the
country or, frankly, around the
world."
Lyons has worked on the proj-
ect with the help of the Homeless
World Cup, an annual interna-
tional soccer tournament featur-
ing more than 60 participating
nations.
The tournament was first es-
tablished in 2003.
A study conducted by the
Homeless World Cup found

that of the 2006 tournament par-
ticipants, 35 percent have secured
regular employment and 44 per-
cent have improved their housing
situations since the competition.
"Most people in the streets
just aren't really healthy.
If you started getting them
into physical activities, it
could be good."
Robert Bell
local homeless man

Local homeless man Byron
Woods said that Lyons is having
trouble getting players because
the program is not offering what
homeless people really need.
"How I look at it, money needs
to be spent on more important
things, such as adequate shelter,"
Woods said.
It would be hard for the home-
less to participate in a team sport
while they are struggling to find


long-term employment and per-
manent shelter, he said.
Woods said most homeless
people can get shelter for a week
or two and a temporary job, but
when that ends, they wind up
back on the street.
He added that these issues are
more important than just provid-
ing the homeless a sport to play.
"It's like if you're in school,"
Woods said. "A sport is not a
necessity to graduate in school, so
other things are more important."
Kent Vann, the executive di-
rector of St. Francis House, said
organizers of the soccer program
need to look for homeless people
in permanent programs.
The one offered at St. Francis
House for single, homeless work-
ing men and women could be a
prime target for the team, he said.
"That's basically the way we
are in our lives," he said. "Our ex-
tracurricular activity comes after
we've done our work."

Vann also said the sport would
teach the homeless valuable skills,
like showing up on time, being
part of a team and working hard
toward a common goal.
He said it would be a good
way to get away from a daily
routine and focus on something
enjoyable.
Local homeless advocate Pat
Fitzpatrick said the program is a
brilliant idea.
"It brings them back to some-
thing normal," Fitzpatrick said.
Local homeless man Robert
Bell said the program would be a

The soccer program could

Bell said.
"Most people in the streets just
aren't really healthy," he said.
"If you started getting them into
physical activities, it could be
good."

Summer break is within sight, and it comes not a moment
too soon. We at the Department of Darts and Laurels have
been waiting with baited breath for the chance to recharge
our collective batteries with a week of rest and relaxation.
However you choose to spend your downtime next week, we
hope you will play it safe. With that said, it's time for the last-of-
summer-A edition of ...



Darts & Laurels

We knew it must have been some sort of fluke. For two weeks
in a row we, the custodians of Darts and Laurels, had nothing
impolite to say about our elected officials. We're still waiting for
scientists to get back to us on what profound galactic phenom-
enon could have precipitated this unlikely happening, but this
week's news from Tallahassee has reminded us why we harbor
no astonishment at our leaders' capacity to place political pos-
turing above prudent policy.
It's with this in mind that we heave a maybe-you-should-
listen-to-more-policy-experts-than-right-wing-talking-heads
DART to our flip-flopping, orange-glow Gov. Charlie Crist for
his about-face on the issue of offshore drilling. Following the lead
of Sen. John McCain and a cadre of empty-headed conservative
pundits, Crist has announced a newfound zeal for destroying
Florida's environment and endangering her economic interests.
Betraying his resplendent pro-environment persona, Crist has
jumped aboard the "drill here, drill now" bandwagon.
Crist, who reiterated as recently as last week his opposition to
drilling off Florida's coast, now claims that the need to find a so-
lution to $4-a-gallon gasoline overrides environmental concerns.
Crist also cited a perceived increase in public support for drilling
as rationale for his change of heart. While we applaud efforts to
lessen the sting of high gas prices, we could not disagree more
with the governor on his proposed remedy.
Next, we hurl a belated cutting-Medicaid-funding-is-about-
as-smart-as-leaving-Bill-Clinton-unsupervised-at-a-sorority-
party DART to Congress and President Bush for reducing the
federal funding of Medicaid, the result of which is now being
felt here in Alachua County, as public schools have been forced
to lay off nurses.
Without the benefit of a federally funded Medicaid grant,
Alachua County has had to dismiss more than half of the nurses
on staff. Notwithstanding the obvious need for on-site medical
professionals at public schools in cases of emergencies or ill-
nesses, studies suggest that there is a correlation between having
full-time nurses, and achieving higher FCAT scores and overall
grades.
With their inaction, Congress and the president have shown
that their priorities are out of balance. As we spend upward of
$1 trillion fighting a pointless war in Iraq, American schoolchil-
dren lack proper medical care in their places of learning. This is
a disgrace.
We next present an it's-good-to-be-green LAUREL to UF pro-
fessor Crawford "Buzz" Holling for winning the prestigious
Volvo Environment Prize. Congratulations are certainly in order
for professor Holling, who is the second member of UF's faculty
to receive this great honor (In 2006, UF professor Carl Walters
won the award.)
Holling, an eminent emeritus professor of Ecological Sciences
here at UF, is internationally renown for his resilience theory. We
are proud of professor Holling's accomplishments, and we
thank him for setting such a standard of excellence for all of us
in The Gator Nation.
Last, but certainly not least, we offer a thanks-for-asking-
the-tough-questions-and-keeping-our-politicians-on-their-toes
LAUREL to long-time moderator of NBC's "Meet the Press,"
Tim Russert, who died Friday of a heart attack at the age of 58.
Russert's tenacious and pedantic interviewing style has intimi-
dated and in some cases, eviscerated even the most char-
ismatic and adept politicos over the past two decades. Russert
has been described as a media institution, and rightfully so. His
in-depth analysis and down-to-business disposition was tough,
but fair. His incisive punditry will be sorely missed this crucial
election season. We offer our deepest sympathies and condo-
lences to his loved ones.

AND THEN HOMELESSNESS WAS SOLVED FOREVER.


Guest ,c.i -'(r i

Tragic Gitmo ruling
ast week, the Supreme Court turned its back on the
American people. In a 5-4 ruling, the court held that
prisoners at Guantanamo Bay have the right to habeas
corpus. In English, this means that prisoners are allowed to
hear the evidence against them, and President Bush is pro-
hibited from declaring anyone an "enemy combatant" and
detaining them indefinitely without charge.
At first glance, it might not seem very wise to randomly
round up people who happen to live in an area where there
are terrorists and imprison them on a small island halfway
across the world. And it is exactly this kind of superficial
thinking that has now put the American people. in grave
danger.
Despite the disastrous ruling, there is a ray of hope and
integrity that shines brightly from the Supreme Court bench.
This beacon of freedom is the honorable Justice Antonin
Scalia, a free-thinking and enlightened neoconservative who
began his dissenting opinion with the words, "America is at
war with radical Islamists" reminding us just how afraid
we should be. He then delved deeper into the issue, predict-
ing unwaveringly that the decision will "almost certainly
cause more Americans to be killed." That's right, "almost cer-
tainly." This type of strong language is usually only reserved
for the most dire and irrefutable of circumstances. Such as in
2002 when Vice President Dick Cheney accurately informed
us that "there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has
weapons of mass destruction."
Those who are not so quick-minded may have missed the
logical steps between habeas corpus and dead Americans.
For you, Scalia cited numerous situations where prisoners
deemed noncombatants by the military had been released
from Guantanamo, only to be later found on the battlefield
killing American soldiers.
Now I know there are some of you soft-on-terrorist types
out there who might think that just because we pluck up peo-
ple oftentimes innocent people from their homes and
families, transport them to a prison in the Caribbean, hold


threatens America
them with absolutely no charges,
keep them for years in solitary con-
finement and mercilessly torture
Stem to extract information they
don't have, it would be possible for
the government to turn any law-
Brandon Sack abiding person into a violent ter-
letter r.og rorist. But let's remember that these
people are radical Islamists who
hate our freedom. If they weren't al-
ready violent terrorists, they were probably going to become
Islamofascist jihadists eventually anyway.
But back to the ruling. Twice before this same issue has
come before the Supreme Court, and the same un-American
decision has been meted out. But thanks to the fearless pa-
triotism of the president, John McCain and a Republican
Congress, the Detainee Treatment Act of 2005 and the
Military Commissions Act of 2006 were able to rectify the
Supreme Court's mistakes. Now, for the third time, the
Supreme Court has the gall to think it knows how best to
interpret the Constitution. How dare they?
Scalia put it best: "What competence does the Court have
to second-guess the judgment of Congress and the President
on such a point?" The answer is none. No matter what you
learned in your high school civics class. If you haven't caught
on to the sarcasm yet, you probably think Stephen Colbert
isn't playing a character and might as well just stop read-
ing here. In reality, this is truly a triumph for human rights
and for justice. The decision will in no way endanger any
American citizens. The worst that could happen is we will
have some assurance that those responsible for the attacks
of Sept. 11 will have the opportunity to be brought to justice
properly and with no doubts about their guilt or innocence.
If nothing else, that is the minimum we owe the victims of
Sept. 11 and their families.

Magazine gives voice to Alachua County rape victims


* ONE-TIME PUBLICATION FEATURES
VICTIMS' ART, WRITING SUBMISSIONS.

By CHANTELLE MARCELLE
Alligator Writer
Putting pain into words can be difficult.
Rita Lawrence thinks it can also be a way
to help the members of her support groups
heal from their traumatic rapes.
Lawrence, a victim advocate at the
Alachua County Victim Services and Rape
Crisis Center, decided to create a free, one-
time publication composed of art and writing
submissions from rape victims.


"Survivors who participate get to. say
what they need to say for themselves,"
Lawrence said.
She said she hopes the magazine will
not only be a means of support for other
survivors of rape, but will also educate the
community.
One thousand copies will be available to
the public at the end of July.
Because a lot of people don't understand
the far-reaching effects of being a victim of
rape, the magazine will help people get rid
of stereotypical views of rape, such as finding
fault with the victim or the belief that the as-
sailants are always strangers, she said.
The publication will also allow the com-


"Survivors who participate get
to say what they need to say for
themselves."
Rita Lawrence
Alachua County Victim Services and Rape
Crisis Center victim advocate

munity to be more open about discussing the
issue, Lawrence said.
She hopes to provide a diverse range of
victims' experiences and thoughts through
the magazine.
If the publication is successful and the


budget allows, she wants to continue the
project. In the future, Lawrence said she will
consider allowing the loved ones of victims,
whom she refers to as secondary victims, to
submit work.
Tanja van der Veen, a victim advocate at
the University Police Department's Office of
Victim Services, said the most difficult step
toward healing can be disclosure to someone
you feel comfortable with, whether it's a
friend, counselor, victim advocate or pastor.
Writing may or may not be helpful for
victims, van der Veen said.
"Everybody has different personalities
and finds different things to be therapeutic,"
she said.


STUDENT GOVERNMENT

SG Treasurer defends absence after accusatory e-mail


By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Writer
While Student Body Treasurer
Paul Drayton maybe out of state, he
is certainly not out of mind.
During Tuesday's Student Senate
meeting, senators discussed an e-
mail sent to the body Friday that
called for Drayton's impeachment
after he accepted a summer intern-
ship in New York with JPMorgan
Chase.
The e-mail was sent by Christian
Duque, a UF alumnus and former


senator. Duque accused Drayton of
abandoning Student Government
when he accepted the internship.
Gator Party Sen. Naadira Renfroe
denied the allegations in a prepared
address.
In the e-mail, Duque wrote that
Drayton was being paid for his SG
position while interning this sum-
mer.
Renfroe said Drayton has not
received a paycheck since May 9 be-
cause he has not kept office hours.
Drayton later addressed the
Senate from a cell phone that was
held to a microphone by Kellie Dale,


S.oate president. He assured the
senators he was fulfilling his duties
by calling during
the lunch break of
his 10-hour work
day to check in
with his chief
financial officer,
Rene Medina.
"Is this aban-'
donment, and
am I slapping
students in the face? I don't think
so," Drayton said.
Drayton. said in a telephone
interview that his speech was not


directed at Duque's e-mail but was
necessary to quell recent rumors
that he could not perform his duty
in New York. He said he is about to
complete the 2009-2010 SG budget,
something not completed until July
in years past.
"More stuff is getting done in
the treasurer's office in the summer
than ever period," he said.
Dale said in a telephone inter-
view that there are no founded argu-
ments for Drayton's impeachment.
Orange and Blue Party Sen. Sam
Miorelli said he was confused as to
why the issue had been discussed


when the author was no longer a
senator or a UF student.
"I think that it is unfortunate that
Sen. Renfroe and Treasurer Drayton
felt it was necessary to go into basi-
cally what I felt were rants over an
e-mail," Miorelli said.
In other news, the Senate unani-
mously passed a resolution extend-
ing its support to flood victims at the
University of Iowa.
"The entire university is basically
underwater right now," said Orange
and Blue Party Sen. Eric Wolf, who
was a sponsor of the bill and has
family attending the university

Safety week highlights Florida's


lightning danger


By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Writer
Lightning Safety Awareness
Week begins Sunday, and with
recent thunderstorms drenching
the Gainesville area, experts say
residents should take note of those
electrifying veins that stretch across


Florida's summer skies.
Pete Wolf, a meteorologist at the
National Weather Service office in
Jacksonville, said lightning prob-
ably kills more people in Florida
than any other weather hazard.
No other state is struck as often,
Wolf said.
Lorraine Williams, an educator
at the Alachua County Department


of Public Safety, said if people better
understand the risk of being struck
by lightning, they might avoid be-
ing hit like one Gainesville man was
last week.
Austin Lowe, 20, who was
standing under a tree in Butler
Plaza when he was hit by light-
ning, had the lower half of his body
burned.


Charles Roop / Alligator
Lightning bolts light up the sky during an April thunderstorm in southwest Gainesville. Lightning Safety
Awareness Week begins this Sunday to help people understand the risk of being struck by lightning.


Lowe was admitted to Shands
at UF in serious condition June
10, and was listed in fair condition
early Wednesday evening.
Lightning travels at about 37
miles per second and reaches 54,000
degrees Fahrenheit, and it has killed
more than 74 people in Florida in
the last 10 years, according to data
from the National Weather Service.
Lowe is among the majority
of people who are injured but not
killed by lightning.
Of the 1,500 people hit by light-
ning in Florida from 1959 to 1994,
only 345 died, according to a report
by the National Lightning Safety
Institute.
Survivors can suffer burn scars,
brain damage or injuries to the
heart and arteries, said UF meteo-
rology professor Corene Matyas.
"When people are hit, many
times their clothing or jewelry will
bur and melt into their skin,"
Matyas said.
Lightning, which harnesses five
to six times the heat of the sun and
is usually as narrow as a finger, can
strike from the bluest sky, she said.
If people are outdoors and hear
thunder, they should count to 30.
If they see lightning before that
number, they should find shelter
immediately, Matyas said.
"If you find yourself in an area
with no shelter, crouch as low to
the ground, and rest on the balls
of your feet," she said. "That way,
only a little part of you is touching
the ground."


Lightning Facts
* In 2008. there have been
eight lightning fatalities in the
U.S., and the last death was
recorded on June 15 in
Bristol, Fla.

* Men are struck by lightning
four times more often than
women. From 1959 to 1994,
men accounted for 84 percent
of lightning fatalities and 82
percent of injuries.

* Florida has twice as many
lightning casualties (deaths
and injuries combined) as any
other state.

* Most lightning casualties
occur in the afternoon-two-
thirds between noon and
4 p.m.

* Sunday has 24 percent
more lightning-related deaths
than other day, followed by
Wednesday.

* Lightning reports reach their
peak in July.

UF PROJECTS

Stadium expansion nearing end


By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Staff Writer
A new army of concrete stumps
lining the curbs of the southwest en-
trance of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium has
many students, well, stumped.
The two-foot-high "bollards" are
part of the $28 million construction
project to complete the stadium's
Gateway of Champions.
The entire project should be com-
pleted in late July after about three
years of construction.
Aside from highlighting the foot-


ball team's national championship
titles in 1996 and 2006, the gateway
will house office space for the football
program.
"It's not over the top, but it's
going to be very functional."
Chip Howard
associate athletic director of operations
It will also include an expanded
strength and conditioning room used
by six UF athletic teams.
The stumps are meant to prevent
cars from parking on the sidewalk


and jumping curbs on game days,
said Chip Howard, associate athletic
director of operations.
Howard said he does not expect the
cylindrical structures to be obstacles
to fans during Gators game days.
He said construction on the sta-
dium expansion will be completed on
time even though original projections
estimated it would be finished by
August 2007.
"It's not over the top, but it's going
to be very functional," Howard said.
He said funding for the project
came from Gator Boosters.

Alumnus wins

Hearst award
By SARAH HENDERSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF alumnus John Cox won the William
Randolph Hearst Foundation's 2008 national
writing championship, the collegiate equiva-
lent of the Pulitzer Prize, in San Francisco on
June 5.
The national championship write-off
consisted of writing three
stories in approximately
UF 48 hours. The topic for this
Academic year's competition was spe-
cific methods sections of San
Francisco were going green, Cox said.
He had previously been selected as the
January winner in the Hearst Foundation's in-
depth writing category. His story was written
about the unsolved 2004 murder of UF student
Sudheer Reddy Satti.
Cox, who received a bachelor's degree in
journalism this spring, said he has been inter-
ested in winning a Hearst since he took classes
with journalism professors Mike Foley and Ted
Spiker. "They inspired me," Cox said. "Its re-
ally too much to explain how much they have
done for me."
His award as the writing champion in-
cluded a leather-bound certificate and a $5,000
scholarship.

Families reclaimed some personal items


Machen wants more time


BOG, from page 1


trustees to seek comments from
the board's chancellor during an-
nual presidential evaluations.
Florida State University
President T.K. Wetherell also
expressed his concern about the
regulation's effect on recruiting
top trustees in a three-page letter
to the Board of Governor's chan-
cellor, Mark Rosenberg.
"This regulation has far-reach-
ing impacts and requires more
than two weeks to fully under-
stand the ramifications of the pro-
posed changes," Wetherell wrote.
Machen and Wetherell may get
their wish. Edmonds said because
of concerns from presidents and
trustees, the board will most likely
discuss the proposal and delay
its approval of notification to its
August meeting.
There will then be a period of
at least 30 days during which the


board will hear what trustees and
presidents have to say about the
proposed rules without taking
any action. If the regulation stays
on course, the board will vote on it
in October.
S The board
will also discuss
a new model
for funding
enrollment. As
it is now, the
more additional
.students a uni-
versity has, the
Machen more funding
it receives, Edmonds said. This
works well for small, growing uni-
versities but not for large universi-
ties, such as UF, which lose money
if they do not gain additional
students.
Edmonds said the board also
plans to elect a replacement for
Chairwoman Carolyn Roberts,
who has held the position since
2003.


ROLLING, from page 1

Items include nothing,
receipts, fingerprints, DNA evi-
dence and carpet.
The sheriff's office even has
sliding glass doors that Rolling
removed hinges from to get into
an apartment where he commit-
ted one of his murders, Maynard


said.
S"Anything we thought we
might need, we took it," he said.
The victims' families as well
as relatives of
Local Rolling were noti-
News fled so they could
collect any items
they were legally entitled to
keep, Maynard said.
They were able to collect


what they wanted during the
past year.
Only a fraction of the evi-
dence was taken, such as family
photographs that were on the
shelves in the victims' apart-
ments, he said.
Other items, including furni-
ture and nothing, were not taken
because of the painful memories
associated with them, he said.


Program to relieve crowded universities

ing biotechnology industry, he said.
SFCC will continue all of its current programs
and will not offer any degrees that would compete
with UF programs, he said.
Janine Sikes, UF spokeswoman, said UF sup-
ports the Florida College System because of lim-
ited space in Florida's public universities.
Sasser said he is not worried about the per-
ceived credibility of these new programs com-
pared to degrees from established universities.
"A bachelor's degree is paramount for just
about all citizens to lead a productive life," he
said.


"A bachelor's degree is paramount
for just about all citizens to lead a
productive life."
Jackson Sasser
SFCC President

The school will retain its open-door policy and
welcome any student with a high school diploma
to complete a two-year degree. However, students
will have to apply to get into a bachelor's program,
he said. Funding for the program and the cost of
tuition are two issues that still need to be resolved,
Sasser said. The law mandates that the cost of tu-
ition be lower than that of state universities.

Depression strikes millions- indiscriminately. Depression is
simply a suppression of brain activity that makes life unbearable.
And even though depression is readily treatable, only 1 in 5
ever seeks treatment. Why do so many jLpt drag themselves
along or eventually seek relief through suicide? First, there's
time lack of awareness of depression- as am illness and as the
threat that it is to each and every one of Lis. Second, there's
the unwarranted negative stigma attached to it. You know, the
'mental' thing. It's thne to collectively face depression. TO

Music for the Masses



Local musician created own record label, will travel on Warped Tour


BAILEY PARKE AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER


Joe Loffredo leads a double life.
By day, he sports a button-down
shirt tucked into khaki slacks. By
night, he dons a bandana and high-
top sneakers.
No, he is not a government spy.
Loffredo, 26, works an eight-to-
five job as a legal assistant for the
Office of the State Attorney. But
when he steps out of the office, he
is the president of his own start-up
music label, True/False Records,
and a guitarist and vocalist for local
band T13C.
On Friday, Loffredo will take on


the full role as president of True/
False Records when he begins trav-
eling and promoting his label on this
year's Warped Tour.
"I'm going to get every kid out
there' to know about the newest
record label out of Gainesville," he
said.
Loffredo is in his seventh year
as a band member. For those seven
years, he has also done the booking
and managing for his band. .
"Every year it gets so hard to pay
the bills and live this double life,"
he said.


He has known for quite some
time that he wanted to start his own

At first when I
started thinking about it,
I thought how incredibly unat-
tainable that goal would be.

label, and he started to believe that
a label could also help him finan-
cially. During one tour with T13C,
he tossed around the idea with his
bandmates.


"At first when I started thinking
about it, I thought how incredibly
unattainable that goal would be,"
he said.
From 2006 to 2007, Loffredo de-
cided to turn his dream to reality by
starting.a label and building it from
the ground up because of the skills
he gained from working with his
band. Now his label is fully func-
tional, with two bands signed: T13C
and an up-and-coming Bradenton,
Fla., band called The Prospect.
His wildest dreams came true this
year when Kevin Lyman, the creator
of Warped Tour, agreed to give him
a position inside the tour to promote


his label across the country.
It was a long process for Loffredo
to get in contact with Lyman, as he
sent short e-mails almost weekly
without any response.
One day he decided to write a
more personalized e-mail explain-
ing his history with his band and
label, telling Lyman that even if he
does not accept him for the tour, he
will be out there promoting anyway.
Lyman finally responded and put
Loffredo in touch with his assistant.

Loffredo plays in T13C

LOFFREDO, from page 13
"What's the most positive word for excited?" Loffredo said.
"I had to walk away from my computer."
Since then, he has worked tirelessly to prepare for the tour.
Mike Loffredo, Joe's twin brother and bandmate sees how
far the label has come through his brother's hard work.
"Whe- he started, he literally knew nothing," Mike
Loffredo said. "Every week he learns something that he can do
and should be doing."
Joe Loffredo has used a large network of contacts to get
True/False Records to its current level, including friends.
Mike Loffredo said his brother spends spare time with former
bandmate Collin Austin, owner of New Scooters 4 Less, to gain
knowledge about business.
"Everything in regards to starting a business, I've done,"
Austin said. "He's picked my brain."
With all of the advice in mind, Joe Loffredo and his band hit
the road Monday night to California.
"I believe in my band," he said. "I believe True/False
Records is going to take T13C to the next level."
Loffredo said he is still on cloud nine and can't believe how
far he has come.
"This should not be happening to me right now, but I'm
damn glad it is," he said.

"The Incredible Hulk" fails to continue Marvel's success


JESSICA METZGER *
AVENUE WRITER
"The Incredible Hulk" is an incredible
disappointment. I had such high hopes for
this remake after Marvel Studios' success with
"Iron Man" and the film's reported box office
numbers. Trie, this version is better than the
2003 "Hulk" but this film is still not up to par
with wlat you would expect from a superhero
movie.
The movie is intended to be a sequel of
sorts to "Hulk," but heads in a different direc-
tion. It is more action oriented than Ang Lee's
emotiofially drive film. But this is expected,
as Louis Leterrier is known for thrillers like
"The Transporter" and its.sequel.
The movie and its plot begin slow and


continue crawling at a snail-like pace. Bruce
Banner (Edward Norton) starts out in hiding
and on the run from the U.S. military and
General Ross (William Hurt), who says Bruce
- and his infected blood is property of the
government. Bruce then, as expected, goes
green when he gets angry or excited.
This repetitive pattern of hide, run and
Hulk out becomes tiresome as it continues
throughout the entire film. Only within the
last 30 minutes of the movie do things get
.interesting with Hulk's all-out battle with
Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth), who transformed
into the Abomination, finally delivering some
real action.,
Liv Tyler's performance as Betty Ross, Gen.
Ross's estranged daughter and Bruce's love
(and the only one who seems to soothe the


green beast), is sweet, but you get very little
insight into her character. Like her character,
Tyler's acting is given little credit or concern.
However, Norton's por-
trayal of Bruce is true to the
character, though the film
barely scrapes the surface
..' on his back story, failing to
S explain how Bruce ended
up with this "freak gamma
exposure" that turned him
into the Hulk.
Norton It is prudent to know
the comic's basic history and to have retained
some of the plot from "Hulk" to even margin-
ally enjoy this film.
The CGI effects for the film were pretty im-
pressive, with a redesigned Hulk and a creepy


opponent.
Overall, "The Incredible Hulk" was a
lengthy setup for a sequel, which is all alluded
to in the last two minutes of the film when
Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark pops up to
seek out Gen. Ross for a chat (in case you've
missed all the online reports).
- Marvel Studios has announced it will be
releasing "The Avengers" in July 2011, which
is rumored to combine heroes Iron Man, the
Hulk, Nick Fury, Thor, Ant-Man and Captain
America. These extras in both the end of "Iron
Man" and "The Incredible Hulk" are building
up to something.
Don't waste your money on this film.
Wait for the good parts to appear on
YouTube, and keep your fingers crossed for
"The Avengers."


R.E.M. deliver impressive show, prove they can still rock


ROBERT HILSON *
AVENUE WRITER
"We are young despite the
years we are concern/ We are
hope despite the times." So sings
Michael Stipe on R.E.M.'s classic
"These Days," the band's state-
ment of purpose and a tune that
had been rattling in my head a
full week prior to an early summer
gig at the University of California,
Berkeley campus. The song rocks,
no questions asked, but it's also
slightly cringe-inducing, should
you picture it played by three mid-
dle-aged hipsters one frumpy


(Peter Buck), one bald (Stipe) and
one timelessly nerdy (Mike Mills).
It also begs the question, are these
guys full of it? Twenty years on,
are once-ballsy claims now as
hollow as one of Buck's signature
Rickenbackers? In short, does
R.E.M. still matter?

After a blistering set from The

Revenge" would make a best-of
playlist but when stacked beside
pop-culture staples like "The One I
Love," "Orange Crush" and "Man
On The Moon," they didn't sound
out of place, either.


Though his head was flecked
with gray, Stipe sang with a famil-
iar guttural baritone that revealed
season rather than age. Likewise,
bassist Mike Mills, forever frozen
in time, took the stage by way of
the Reagan Era, lending transcen-
dent siren-pitched vocals to encore
renditions of "Carnival of Sorts
(Box Cars)" and the acid-rain an-
them "Fall On Me."
Does R.E.M. still matter?
Walking down the amphitheater
steps with 8,500 other shiny,
happy people, I felt guilty for even
asking.

Bonnaroo 2008


Attendees endured show delays, hot weather and rain showers"


LAURA NOVETZKE *
AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER
One after another, cars poured out of the
Wal-Mart parking lot in the quaint town of
Manchester, Tenn. Thursday morning.
Some of their inhabitants had been sleep-
ing there all night while others stayed awake
with anticipation playing the tunes of this
year's Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.
More than 200 acts would entertain tens of
thousands of people during the four-day
festival.
Festival attendees dressed in hippie attire
marched from surrounding campgrounds
and parking lots to the infamous Bonnaroo
arch, painted blue for this year's festival. A
collection of tents and stages formed the vil-
lage of "Centeroo" and housed musical and
comedic acts like Pearl Jam and Chris Rock.
This year's comedy tent featured Janeane
Garofalo, Mike Birbiglia and Louis C.K. In
a press conference, Garofalo said she was
thrilled to be performing.
"How can you not be funny in a circus
tent?" she said.
The festival, once known for booking jam
bands, offered variety in its seventh year
with acts like Metallica and Kanye West.
West, who was originally scheduled to
play at 8:15 p.m. Saturday on the Which
Stage, was rescheduled to 2:45 a.m. Sunday


on the main stage. The show began at 4:30
a.m. No explanation was given for the delay,
Though rumors circulated. Whether it was
West's elaborate set or his demand of ex-
clusive playtime, graffiti bearing the phrase


"Kanye sucks" was common during his set.
Despite missing West, UF aerospace en-
gineering major Jake Papp, 21, said his first
year at Bonnaroo far exceeded his expecta-
tions.

"I came for Metallica," Papp said. "They
were amazing. The rest was just a bonus."
While Pearl Jam and Metallica played
old favorites, newer bands used their stage
time for innovation. Academy Award win-
ners Glen Hansard and Mark6ta Irglo~ of
The Swell-Season invited fans on stage to
read their personal poetry, while Hansard
strummed his guitar in the background.
Late-night light shows by Chromeo and
Ghostland Observatory boomed through
Centeroo, muffling the sounds of the
Icelandic band Sigur R6s.
The Gainesville-based punkband Against
Me! played Saturday afternoon despite the
brutal sun. Lead singer, Tom Gabel, shed his
shirt to keep cool and many moshers crowd-
surfed to escape the heated tent.
Despite the warm weather, the farm saw
some rain Friday night that lasted through
Saturday morning. The tents prevented any
performance cancellations but couldn't help
attendees, who waded through the thick
mud.
On Sunday, the final day of the festival,
tired campers and artisan vendors began
to leave, but some stayed behind to catch
shows like Robert Plant and Alison Krauss.
"I wasn't quite ready to go home," said
Papp, who didn't leave until Monday after-
noon. "It went by way too fast."

BREW-iNq STARdoM


Former UF first baseman excels in Milwaukee Brewers' organization


By SHANNON McCARTHY
Alligator Staff Writer
smccarthy@alligator.org

When the Milwaukee Brewers took
former UF slugger Matt LaPorta with
the eienth overall pick of last year's
draft, the move was described as
"shocking" and "stunning" by many
draft analysts.
One year later, LaPorta is making
Jack Zduriencik, Milwaukee's director
of scouting, look like a genius.
The Port Charlotte native has moved
rapidly through the minor-league
ranks and is rated the organization's
top prospect by Baseball America.
He is currently playing for Double-A
Huntsville in. the Southern League,
where he has been named the player of
the week twice so far this season, and
he leads the league with 19 home runs
and is second to teammate Mat Gamel
in RBIs with 58.
LaPorta returned to Florida for
the first time since his playing days
with the Orange and Blue last week
when his Huntsville Stars visited
the Jacksonville Suns at the Baseball
Grounds of Jacksonville.
It was a homestand for the Suns,
but you wouldn't have known it every
time LaPorta and Gamel, a Jacksonville
native and Bishop Kenny High alum,
came to the plate or made a play in the
field. The LaPorta supporters were vo-
cal and made themselves known.


"It's been a great feeling," LaPorta
said. "To see all of my friends and fam-
ily come into town, just to know that I
have that kind of support, it's nice to
know."
Friends and family weren't the only
ones who made the trip to see the for-
mer Gators star. UF fans flocked to the
games as well, serenad-
ing LaPorta with the
same chant of his last
name that used to ring
all out through McKethan
aeball Stadium, as well as a
few Gator cheers.
"I heard them (Saturday) night,"
LaPorta said with a grin. "It was good
to hear that again."
When he came to the plate in the
ninth inning on Saturday and belted a
two-run shot into the right-field bleach-
ers, he heard the cheers again, echoing
those from the past.

RECORD-BREAKER

The records, awards and achieve-
ments read like a veritable laundry list.
Two-time Southeastern Conference
Player of the Year (and the only UF
player to ever receive the honor).
Two-time First-Team All-American.
Two-time First-Team All-SEC selec-
tion.
Brooks Wallace National Player of
the Year Award finalist.
Dick Howser Trophy finalist.


USA Baseball Golden Spikes Award
finalist.
And the list goes on.
He left UF as the school's career
home run leader with 74, third in SEC
history and ninth in NCAA history.
LaPorta was also the first UF player to
be drafted in the first round since Brad
Wilkerson in 1998. It took three tries for
him to get there, though.
Drafted by the Chicago Cubs, his
favorite childhood team, in the 14th
round out of high school, LaPorta
opted to become a Gator and put his
major-league dreams on hold. He
broke out with a sensational sopho-
more season and led the 2005 squad
to the College World Series, where he
ended his season as the nation's home
run leader.
Big things were expected of LaPorta
and the rest of the Gators in 2006, but
injuries cut those expectations short.
The slugger missed most of his junior
season after straining his oblique, and
his numbers suffered once he returned
to the lineup. As a result, he plum-
meted to the Boston Red Sox in the
14th round (as many expected him to
be a first-rounder) of the 2006 draft.
When Boston could not meet his bonus
demands, he returned to UF for one
more season.
As LaPorta put it, "The third time, I
guess, was a charm." -

Getting Schooled


Former hoops champs Horford, Green come back for Summer A-


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

A student gets out of class and
starts the short stroll from Weimer
Hall toward Stadium Road. His
eyes are focused straight ahead
in a deadpan gaze the common
look for most UF students going
from class to class.
But then he looks up and quick-
ly pulls out his cell phone.
"Guess who I just saw," he says
to a friend.
After a few seconds' pause...
"Al Horford...You know, the bas-
ketball player?"
Well, most people know.
He's not shimmying after


thundering dunks or having food
fights with Joakim Noah, Corey
Brewer and Taurean Green in their
on-campus apartment anymore,
but Horford and Green have at
least made a pit stop in their NBA
careers this Summer A session, as
they are slowly working toward
their degrees.
Forget their bulging bank ac-
counts. Those aren't showing at
the moment. Green still walks
into the UF practice facility with
a Checkers lunch bag in one hand
and a soda in the other. There's
something about a drive-thru res-
taurant that advertises "Burgers
Fries Colas" that doesn't scream
affluent NBA lifestyle.


Alligator File Photo
Former UF forward Al Horford slams in 2 points during the second
half of the Gators' 84-75 victory against Ohio State to win the NCAA
championship on April 2, 2007.


Horford shows up to his TV &
American Society class in basket-
ball shorts and a T-shirt after
getting off the RTS busses that all
the other "normal" students are
on. Horford said he actually wants
to blend in with the rest of the stu-
dent population.
Okay, so they have nice cars,
but you can't tell they're NBA
players in any other way.
And being an NBA player
was almost all he was for a time.
After his Atlanta Hawks brought
the eventual NBA champion
Boston Celtics to a seventh game
in the first round of the playoffs,
Horford's first season lasted lon-
ger than most would've thought.
By the time the Celtics had finally
managed their way against the
Hawks, Summer A was set to start
in eight days.
That's eight days to clean out the
locker, deal with the end of the sea-
son, move to Gainesville, actually
find a place to stay in Gainesville
and register for classes.
Good luck, Al.
"When the season was over,"
Horford said. "I didn't think I was
going to do it. I'm like, 'There's no
way I can do this.' Then I came,
got registered and kind of got back
into it, and I was good. But I was
hesitant at first. It was intense. I
think it was maybe time for me to
relax and shut it down for a little
bit. Instead, I just came back here
and started."
Two members of the '04s are
back, albeit only for six weeks.
Still, while Horford could be
relaxing beachside in his native
town in Dominican Republic and
Green could be doing the same
in his hometown in South Florida,
they're sitting in lecture halls lis-
tening to information other than
how to handle the opponent's
man-to=man defense.
"It was weird," Green said.
"I hadn't been to class in I don't
know how long.
"People ask why we come
back, because we're making a lot
of money now. But there's life
after basketball, so you might as


well come back and get it done.
Basketball is not forever. I wish it
could be, but it's not."
They will forever be remem-
bered as Gainesville heroes,
though. Horford takes one step
onto campus, and he gets asked
for a photo. Just sitting in Weimer,
a parent comes up to him and asks
him for his autograph for his son.

"People were kind of in
disbelief, and they're still
in disbelief, even when
they see me two days be-
fore summer school's over.
You're really back?"
Al Horford
Former UF forward


"I don't mind it at all," Horford
said. "It's a good thing. People
want to meet you and just ap-
preciate what you've done. That's
something that makes me happy
to represent the university the
right way."
Being a multi-million dollar
athlete and still coming back to
earn your degree is doing just
that.
"People were kind of in disbe-
lief," Horford said, "and they're
still in disbelief, even when they
see me two days before summer
school's over. You're really back?"
Horford's not kidding.
"I was wondering what he
was doing here," UF senior Sean
Jordan said. "I turned around and
texted my friend, 'Al's in my class
right now.'
"They have their priorities
right."
They're back and, once again,
living together. Green and Horford
are staying together with a friend
at an off-campus house. However,
this time, without Noah or Brewer,
-the place has become a bit more
tidy. According to some members
of this season's men's basketball
team, the '04s were a much cleaner
basketball team than they were
housekeepers.
The stench of Five Star Pizza


was an aroma that often filled the
air.
"Me and Taurean we man-
age to keep it dean," Horford said.
"We were more neat than Jo. and
Corey. They were dirty, they could
tell you."
But what if they got a visit
from their gangly chest-pounding
African Viking and goofy Brew
Crew?
"No," Green said bluntly.
"Definitely not. They'd mess it
up."
Even with plush NBA bank
accounts, some things just don't
change much.
"It's the same dude," Horford
said of living with Green again.
"Taurean lot of energy, running
around all the time. Its amaz-
Sing he's the same. A lot of people
change, but he's the same person."
Coming back to get your degree
isn't a new fad for NBA players.
Rare? Yes, but it has happened
before. What is extremely rare,
however, is coming back after just
one year.
Other athletes will come back
after they've established ttir pro
careers, not when they're just be-
ginning.
"I feel if I didn't come now, I
would have a hard time trying to
get back in school again," Horford
said. "I probably wouldn't have
done it."
Added Green: "School isn't
my strong point, but I got to get
it done. So that's what I'm here
doing. Just get it out of the way.
Just getting it finished as soon as
possible instead of waiting around
forever to come back."
Tell that to other millionaire
athletes. Many make promises, but
not all fulfill them. But, then again,
the '04s have shown that they are
not the typical athletes. Going into
the 2005 season, an NIT champi-
onship for UF would have been
considered a success. Thirty-nine
games later? Oops.
This is just the latest event
that this group has surprised
Gainesville with. And it probably
won't be the last.

Former Gator star may be called up to big leagues in September


LAPORTA, from page 26


< A GOOD GOODBYE

Returning to school and proving that his
sophomore year was no fluke paid off tremen-
dously.
LaPorta enjoyed a remarkable senior cam-
.paign, belting 20 home runs, driving in 52 runs
and finishing the year with a .402 batting aver-
age, on;2 the ninth player in UF history to fin-
ish over the .400 mark. He did all of this while
battling ankle and quadriceps injuries.
"It was a good goodbye, I think," LaPorta
said. "I just know that I went back to school,
and I accomplished the things that I wanted to
accomplish."
After signing with the Brewers and rehab-
bing his right quadriceps, LaPorta was sent to
Milwaukee's rookie dub in Helena for a brief
stop before moving on to low Class-A West
Virginia. The hot hitting carried over from the
end of his college career to the start of his mi-
nor-league career, and he finished the season
batting .304 with 12 home runs and 31 RBIs in
his 115-at-bat debut.
That earned LaPorta a trip to the Arizona
Fall League, a league where teams send their
best prospects to get some extra work in after
the minor-league season. LaPorta was then in-


vited to big-league camp for spring training.
"That was a great learning experience," he
said. "I got to meet a lot of the guys in the big-
league dub and just interact with them. They
taught me a lot. It was a great time. It's kind of
like a big family up there."

OUT IN RIGHT FIELD

The main reason some scratched their
heads when Milwaukee took LaPorta last year
was because of his defensive position. The 6-
foot-2, 210-pound slugger came in as a catcher
at UF but manned first base for the majority
of his career. The only problem? One Prince
Fielder, who currently holds that position for
Milwaukee. So the Brewers drafted LaPorta
as an outfielder, which drew skepticism from
scouts and analysts who regarded his defense
as suspect and even something of a liability.
While that perception is puzzling to many
who watched LaPorta for four yearsat UF, he
doesn't mind hearing the criticism.
"Everybody's got their own opinion," he
said. "It doesn't bother me, it just makes me
want to work harder and prove to people that
I'm not just a hitter, I'm also a good defender,
and I can play the game of baseball."
He paused, then slowly grinned. "Anyway,
I enjoy hearing negative things about myself."
If the negative comments only serve as


motivation for their star prospect, the Brewers
might want to keep telling LaPorta that his
outfield defense needs some major improve-
ment.
While the organization first had him play-
ing left field, he has now been shifted to right
field after Ryan Braun took over that position
i for the major-league dub.
Though he knows he
still has much to learn,
LaPorta is having fun with
his new role.
"I'm pretty athletic,"
he said, "and I think I'm
turning into a pretty good
Altman outfielder."
He certainly looked the
part on Friday night against the Suns when
he made a spectacular diving catch to save an
extra-base. hit. Though he didn't have many
chances throughout the series, LaPorta played
like he belonged in right field.
"There's still a lot of things I need to work
on to get better," he said. "But I know with
time and the way the Brewers' organization
works, they're going to help me and show me
how to do the right things."

CURRENT AND FUTURE STAR

A lot can happen in one year, and the past


12 months for LaPorta have been about as
eventful as they could be.
"It's been kind of a whirlwind since I got
drafted," he said.
"There are a lot of new things in my life
which'are very exciting."
One of those exciting new things is a fian-
cee. LaPorta and Dara Altman, a former pole
vaulter on the UF track and field team, will be
married in December.
As for what lies ahead in LaPorta's baseball
future, there is much speculation that he will
almost certainly be called up to Milwaukee in
September for a taste of the.big leagues, but
LaPorta is taking all of the talk with a grain
of salt.
"There's nothing ever for sure in this
game," he said. "If that happens, it's great, but
if it doesn't, I'm not really concerned about
it."
Nor is he concerned about when he will
make the jump to Triple A.
"It's whatever the organization feels is best
for me," LaPorta said. "I just have to go out
there every day and get better and produce
every game, do my job, and things are going
to happen."
If he continues producing the way he
has, it's only a matter of time before LaPorta
just happens to be in Milwaukee's lineup for
good.
