SFC adds four-



year program


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

Come fall, Santa Fe College will
begin offering four-year degrees for
the first time, which will put it in
competition with UF for even more
of the state's already-scarce funds.
After getting approval from
Florida's Board of Education on
Wednesday and the Southern
Association of Colleges and Schools
in December, Santa Fe has been
cleared to offer bachelor's degrees
in clinical laboratory science and
health services administration.
All of Florida's 28 community
colleges were given the option of of-
fering four-year degrees after July 1,
when a state law went into effect.
Santa Fe President Jackson Sasser
said in order to get the degrees ap-
proved, the college had to prove
they were in demand. Sasser said
not only is the demand for gradu-
ates from these programs "off the
charts," the degrees aren't offered
atUF.
"OurbestpartneristheUniversity


of Florida, and we wouldn't com-
pete," he said. "If this is something
that they offered, we would not."
But not everyone is sold on four-
year degrees from community col-
leges.
UF President Bemie Machen
questioned their worth in a July
Gainesville Sun article.
UF spokes-
woman Janine
Sikes said Machen
was concerned
about the lack of
resources.
"His concern
is that the legisla-
Sasser ture is not going
to allocate addi-
tional dollars," she said, adding that
new four-year programs such as
Santa Fe's will only stretch the lim-
ited funding currently available.
Machen did not respond to an e-
mail sent Wednesday afternoon.
Sasser said Santa Fe hadn't deter-
mined how much money it would
request from the state to help fund
the new degrees and declined to
give an estimate.


Disabled woman left stranded by towing company


* THE WOMAN USES A CANE AND
WAS REFUSED A RIDE TO HER CAR.

By HUNTER SIZEMORE
Alligator Writer

A physically disabled woman was told
"too bad, so sad" by a driver from Ultimate
Towing after she asked for a ride to the lot
where the company had towed her car, she


said.
But walking to the lot was not an option
for Ashley Gregg, 24. She uses with a cane
due to degenerative disk disease, which af-
fects the spine. She can travel no more than
50 or 60 feet without resting.
"You get the ticket, you pay the fine,"
Gregg said. "It's more that I was left strand-
ed as a handicapped person that worries
me."


"It's more that I was left stranded
as a handicapped person that
worries me."
Ashley Gregg
Gainesville resident

When she walked to the parking lot after
eating at Flaco's Cuban Bakery, a tow truck
driver, identified only as Driver No. 426,


was towing another car, she said.
She asked the driver to take her to the lot,
and he laughed at her and refused, she said.
The incident happened after she parked in
what she said was an ambiguously marked
lot behind Flaco's and Durty Nelly's Irish
Pub, which turned out to be the property of
the law agency next door.
Ultimate Towing declined to comment
for the story.

Polls say Fla. residents OK with gay adoption
TALLAHASSEE (AP) -A majority of Floridians believe it is OK
for gays and lesbians to adopt children.
A Quinnipiac University poll of 1,370 Floridians showed 55
percent favor doing away with a state law that prohibits gays
from adopting compared to 39 percent who want to keep the ban.
Democrats and independent voters were in the majority favoring
of eliminating the ban while Republicans and white evangelical
Christians supported the law.
But only 27 percent said gays should be allowed to marry while
35 percent favored civil unions and 31 percent said there should be
no legal recognition of gay unions.

Newberry woman experiences inauguration in style


By MORGAN COLLINS
Alligator Writer
She may not have worn Michelle
Obama's flowing Jason Wu gown,
but Cynthia Russell celebrated
President Barack Obama's inaugu-
ration in style.
Russell was one of 10 people
who won tickets to the inaugura-
tion through an essay contest spon-
sored by the Presidential Inaugural
Committee.


"It was all so exciting," Russell
said.
On Saturday, she walked from
her plane to a waiting car that drove
her and her boyfriend to check into
the Capitol Hill Suites Hotel.
They took in the sights and
sounds of the "We Are One" concert
at the Lincoln Memorial Sunday.
Dressed in a deep purple, velvet
dress and a well-used pair of silver
Manolo Blahniks, Russell mingled
with her fellow contest-winners at
Union Station Monday night for a


"It was just incredible.
Everyone got bit by the
Obama bug."
Cynthia Russell
ticket winner

bipartisan dinner in honor of then
Vice President-elect Joe Biden.
The highlight of the night for
her was a musical performance
by Carole King. King's album


"Tapestry" was the first album
Russell ever bought.
Tuesday morning, Russell
trekked to Capitol Hill for Obama's
swearing-in. She maneuvered
through long lines, security check-
points and police barricades before
settling in a spot northwest of the
Capitol.
Temperatures were low, but
spirits were high.
"There was energy in the air,"
Russell said. "It was just incredible.
Everyone got bit by the Obama


bug."
At the Neighborhood Inaugural
Ball that evening, Russell donned a
simple black dress and watched the
first couple slow dance to Beyonce's
soulful rendition of Etta James' "At
Last."
Although the night showcased
Obama dipping to the ground to do
"the bump," it could not trump the
day's proceedings.
"It's one of those things that you
just have to be there to experience
it," Russell said.


Man fleeing police charged with larceny, resisting arrest

Coward ran.
Van Michael Coward, 22, was arrested
and charged with burglary of a business,


larceny and resisting arrest without vio-
lence.
At 5:02 a.m. Thursday, two Gainesville
Police Department officers were sent to
White Apron Catering, 2201 N.E. 2nd St.,
where a store alarm was triggered. When
they arrived they heard noises coming from
inside the building, the GPD arrest report
stated.


When the officers tried to approach
Coward, he ran across Northeast Second
Street.
He did not obey when the
Local officers told him to stop, so
News K-9 officer Charles Owens
sent his police dog to catch
him, said GPD spokesman Keith Kameg.
According to the report, after he was


caught by the dog, Coward was taken to
North Florida Regional Hospital for minor
injuries due to dog bites.
Coward took about $550 worth of
food and table linens from White Apron
Catering, the report stated. He told police
he was sleeping in a shed on the business'
property for the past two nights and went
inside because he was cold.

Homicides low in Alachua


* THERE WERE THREE HOMICIDES
THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY IN 2008.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
Kemmets@alligator.org

Three homicides occurred in Alachua
County in 2008, and police predict that the
ailing economy will cause the number to
rise.
The projected crime increase combined
with budget cuts might force the sheriff's of-
fice to do more with less, according to the
Alachua County Sheriff's Office spokesman
Steve Maynard.
He added that most of the Alachua
County homicides last year were drug re-
lated.
"When income goes down and jobs are
lost, people start to get desperate," Maynard
said. "We expect to see an increase of theft,
burglary, robbery and homicides."
With everyone trying to do as much
as they can to pinch pennies, the Alachua
County Commission might cut law enforce-
ment's budget this year, Maynard said.
"There is going to be a breaking point and
we don't want it to be the service provided
to Alachua County residents," he said.
Maynard said if he were a civilian, he
would want there to be less funding for
county projects and more funding for safety
and law enforcement.
"My personal protection is up there with
food and sleep," he said. "I do not want to
be burglarized, raped or murdered."
Lonn Lanza-Kaduce, academic chair of
the UF criminology department, said that
age may have a direct relationship to violent
trends.


For example, a community with high
numbers of retirees is unlikely to have much
crime, but a community with many young
adults is likely to have more crime.
In Gainesville, many people are young
but educated, so homicide rates tend to be
low.
Although the amount of crime is pro-
jected to rise, Lanza-Kaduce said that an
improvement in Gainesville's Emergency
Medical Service might keep down the num-
ber of homicides.
"Alachua County may have higher vio-
lence than others, but that violence might
not translate to homicides," he said in re-
gards to the increase of technology and the
availability of medicine.
Local But Lanza-Kaduce added
News that the economic downturn
might have an effect on a
county even as insulated as Alachua.
He added that a lot of homicides grow
out of domestic violence. Job loss constraints
and consumption of drugs and alcohol are
also contributing factors.
According to the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement Web site, there were 581
homicides in Florida in 2008.
In Alachua County, there were 6,200
crimes reported for 2008. Of those, 66 were
forcible rape, 151 were robbery, 750 were ag-
gravated assault and 1,278 were burglary.
Alachua county homicide rates have
been consistently low since 2000, the first
year listed on the Web site.
There were six Alachua County homi-
cides in 2004, the year in which the number
was highest. Miami-Dade county led the
state in homicides for 2008 with 122. Orange
County followed it with 64, according to the
Web site.

Beekeepers respond to interest in local products


By VALERIE GARMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Beekeeper Nancy Gentry has
never worn a full bee suit, and
sometimes she omits the veil too.
"I've grown accustomed to the
bees and the stings," said Gentry,
former president of the Northeast
Florida Honey Bee Association. "I
don't get stung very often. I moved
eight hives one time and never got
stung."
Gentry is hosting a meeting
this Saturday in east Palatka to
help beekeepers network and en-
courage them to start their own
clubs. Gentry said there are many
registered beekeepers in Alachua


County who are interested in form-
ing a local club.
The Honey Bee Association's
meetings are held in Green Cove
Springs, about 50 miles Northeast
of Gainesville. Beekeepers from
Alachua, St. Johns, Putnam and
Volusia often cannot make the trip.
Gentry owes a lot of her skill
to her 90-year-old mentor, George
Waldoch, who has been beekeep-
ing for 75 years.
Gentry started beekeeping five
years ago and had only two hives.
She hopes to have as many as 40 to
60 hives this spring.
"It's important to have an older
beekeeper to mentor you," Gentry
said. "This is why the beekeeping


clubs and associations are so im-
portant."
Gentry said Floridians have a
growing interest in local products,
including honey, causing more and
more beekeepers to emerge.
"It's very rewarding and
incredibly exciting when
you produce your first jar of
honey."
Nancy Gentry
Beekeeper

The Northeast Florida Honey
Bee Association started with only
12 people, and when Gentry left
the presidency in December, there


were 120 members.
"Beekeepers are just wonderful
people; it's a strange fellowship
that we have," she said. "It's very
rewarding and incredibly exciting
when you produce your first jar of
honey."
Jerry Hayes, chief of the apiary
inspection section for the Florida
Department of Agriculture, also
agrees beekeepers will benefit from
networking.
"I think (the benefit) is aware-
ness; it's education," Hayes said.
Hayes leads a team of 14 full-
time apiary inspectors, who work
with the 1,200 registered beekeep-
ers in Florida, altogether boasting
more than 200,000 hives. Hayes


said bees provide pollination for
fruits, nuts and berries.
"And then there's the subset of
people that really embrace insects,"
Hayes said. "They want to raise
awareness to people that these in-
sects are beneficial to the environ-
ment."
Hayes said beekeepers are
reaching out and helping the com-
munity and environment because
their bees stray up to 2.5 miles from
their hives.
"You've got people who are
stamp collectors, you've got people
who collect model airplanes ev-
eryone has their hobbies," Hayes
said. "But this is one hobby that
benefits the whole community."


UF budget cuts force library to move materials online


* ELECTRONIC RESOURCES MAKE
UP ABOUT 60 PERCENT OF BUDGET.

By MICHAEL DeVOOGD
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF students spending hours at Library
West may have to start staring at their com-
puters instead of flipping through books.
To cope with Gainesville's budget defi-
cit, UF libraries have reallocated funds from
printed materials to online resources.
According to the 2009 budget for library
materials, UF libraries have moved money
from monographs and print subscriptions
to electronic journals, databases and books


- a move some students and faculty may
prefer.
UF libraries have a flat budget of about
$7.9 million, which is the same as last year,
according to the budget. But inflation has
caused a $700,000 increase in library mate-
rial costs.
Collection managers in UF departments
have been tasked with deciding what mate-
rials to cut this fiscal year, while still ensur-
ing essential books remain untouched.
"Everything is of value to somebody, or
we wouldn't be buying it to begin with,"
said Judy Russell, dean of university librar-
ies. "But they do try to look at what are the
least used databases."


Russell said monographs, books about
one specific topic, are most often cut because
they can be obtained through inter-library
loans, which reached 50,000 last year.
According to Russell, the habits of UF stu-
dents and faculty have changed,
Library and now, electronic resources
West make up about 60 percent of the
total budget.
"I think a lot of our students and faculty
prefer the online resources," Russell said.
"They like being able to get at them 24/7.
They like the searchability and the cut and
paste."
Some UF professors have become
alarmed by the unavailability of important


monographs in the libraries.
R. Allen Shoaf, a UF English professor,
said he sees a steady reduction in the money
allotted for books in his department.
Shoaf said he believes the unavailability
of certain books can have a big impact on his
students' abilities to learn the material he
teaches.
"Critical monographs are expressions of
informed, scholarly opinion," Shoaf said.
He added that the monographs train stu-
dents to critically compare competing opin-
ions.
"It hurts us when we have to cut some-
thing," Russell said. "It's a matter of choos-
ing as carefully as we can."

Editorial
With the spring semester already in full swing,
Monday's holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr. couldn't have come at a better time.
As tests and term papers creep closer into view, we wel-
comed the extended weekend to mentally prepare ourselves
for a semester free of football games and an NCAA tourney
appearance.
Just think spring break is less than two months away!
Until then we offer you the consolation prize of this week's
history-making editon of...



Darts & Laurels

For the typical UF student, the time-tested act of tossing
back a Natural Light or two has nothing to do with prefer-
ence.
Heck, the Editorial Board dreams about the days in which
we are gainfully employed equipped with bank accounts
able to withstand the purchase of brews like Anchor Steam
or Newcastle. To the woman who left her purse behind af-
ter robbing the local Sweetbay, we pour her a why-couldn't-
she-have-sprung-for-the-good-stuff DART for stealing a few
cases of Natty Light.
We can only shake our heads and wonder what she drinks
when she actually pays for her booze.
The Editorial Board would like to take the opportunity to
LAUREL the Academy for heeding the outcry of the general
public in giving the Joker his due. For his efforts in "The Dark
Knight," Heath Ledger stands to compete for Oscar glory
with a posthumous Best Supporting Actor nomination.
We hope the recognition for his performance will bring a
semblance of solace to Ledger's family as Tuesday marked
the anniversary of his death.
With all the positive attention UF receives from its athletic
conquests on the basketball court and football field, you have
to admit we were bound for a misstep. For his arrest Saturday
evening with a bag of coke, we toss a say-it-ain't-so DART at
UF professor Michael Heckenberger an otherwise talent-
ed researcher who garnered the respect of his peers.
We can't help but frown whenever anyone from The Gator
Nation ends up in jail, but it's especially disheartening when
the individual has made an otherwise positive impact in the
community.
The image of two 8-year-old boys with baseball bats con-
jures imagery of Little League Baseball and overzealous par-
ents not saving the life of a woman in distress.
Responding to the screams of his mother, a local child
along with his pal grabbed their baseball bats and started
hitting the woman's armed ex-boyfriend. The Editorial
Board presents the two young heroes an always-swing-for-
the-fences LAUREL for their courageous actions in deterring
a would-be killer.
Somewhere the Tampa Bay Rays are mulling a contract
offer.
Anytime our cell phones notify us of a new text message,
the Editorial Board tends to light up with excitement. Maybe
it's the news of a raging keg party down the block or a po-
tential booty call; regardless, we welcome the distraction. But
when you misuse technology intended to warn us of threats
on campus we don't exactly crack a smile.
For his oh-so-funny joke Tuesday evening, we send a we-
forgot-to-laugh DART the way of the mystery mass-texter.
Couldn't he have just spent his night watching inauguration
coverage like the rest of us?
The streets of Washington overflowed with glowing faces
as the masses gathered to share in the joy of Tuesday's inau-
guration of President Barack Obama. For coming together in
celebration of an historic moment, the Editorial Board awards
a we-can-all-just-get-along LAUREL to America.
If but for one day, people from all walks of life put aside
their differences to recognize the strides made by our great
country.
That's all for this week. You stay classy, UF.

Column

Alligator staffers sacrifice social lives


My day starts at 11 a.m. when I roll out of bed. Some
days I'll head to the gym, others I won't. I occasion-
ally go to class. But the one constant in my life -
aside from Leo's rolls is the Alligator.
My iPhone is constantly blowing up with work-related
e-mails. I spend a lot of time forwarding them along to edi-
tors.
When I do sleep, I dream of missing deadlines.
Of computer failures like the one I experienced on my
first night of work.
Of the surely faulty electrical system starting a fire that de-
stroys the building and arriving to a pile of scorched rubble.
The newsroom has become my home, and my co-workers
have become my family. My mom knows not to call me dur-
ing the week unless it's an emergency because I'm probably
at work or doing something work-related.
And the same applies for the other people who work
alongside me in the 5:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. grind of putting out a
daily newspaper.
This doesn't leave a lot of time for normal college student
pursuits I used to engage in like homework, class, Thursday
night dancing at the Atlantic or any semblance of a romantic
life.
And these troubles come with the territory when you
dedicate yourself to the paper, which is necessary of anyone
serious enough to work here.
I'm lucky to have an understanding significant other who
is OK with speaking to me in short bursts throughout the day
and in between stories as I edit each night.
It also helps that she lives a few hours south in Orlando.
Distance can be a good thing sometimes, especially when
hanging out during the week would be impossible. I've
learned to appreciate the time we get to spend together that
much more.
But for those staffers who are trying to kindle new flames
in Gainesville during their tenure at the newspaper, dating
gets pretty complicated.


After all, assuming you make it
out of the newsroom for long enough
to meet someone you'd be interested
in dating, it's kind of hard to ask
someone out on a date that begins at
1:30 in the morning.
Nicole Safker And it's not exactly sexy to be an-
swering work-related calls constant-
Editorial Notebook ly while trying to remember what
letters@alligator.org
tters@ligator the heck your date was talking about
over a dinner you probably can't af-
ford on your three-dollar-an-hour salary.
But this doesn't seem to dissuade us from trying. And
again, when we are able to get out of work, that time off is
so much sweeter.
We live for Saturday, when we can decompress and have
a few beers.
After this four-day week, which has felt like an eight-day
week with inauguration coverage and larger papers than
usual, I find myself especially craving a day out of my office.
Being so dedicated to what we do here shows in our finished
product. When we put the paper to bed every night, we get
a sense of satisfaction that can be best described as similar to
putting a child to bed after a straight-A report card and ice
cream sundaes for all.
Seeing the paper through the window in the orange boxes
in the morning validates us. The older man on the exercise
bike next to me who read the Alligator as he worked out this
morning brought a smile to my face. Heck, even if you just
pick up the paper for the crossword and the comic, we still
appreciate you. Maybe one day you'll read a story or two.
We're here because we love being here and our No. 1 pri-
ority is serving you, our audience. Let us know how we're
doing. Send us a letter to the editor at letters@alligator.org.

Column


One place these activities should not
be taking place is on the floor of the
Student Senate. It is entirely inap-
propriate for senators of any party
to make overt campaign statements
during the time allotted for student
business.
We are elected to represent our
constituents and serve their inter-
ests, not promote or disparage a
particular legislative slate or execu-
tive ticket. I appeal to senators of
both parties to keep debate civil,
thoughtful and focused on the gen-
uine needs of the students.

Column manipulates message
I have no idea what dictionary


Johnathan Lott is using to look up
words, but his attempts to read "so-
cialist" policies into Obama's inau-
guration speech were comical.
For one thing, my dictionary
defines "socialism" as a theory that
calls for "the ownership and opera-
tion of the means of production and
distribution by society of the com-
munity rather than by private indi-
viduals."
Absolutely nothing Obama said
could reasonably be construed as
advocating such a system.
Furthermore, all of Lott's inter-
pretations of Obama's claims were
incredible distortions of the content
of Obama's statements.
For instance, Lott quotes Obama
as saying "the market can spin out
of control and that a nation can-
not prosper long when it favors only


the prosperous." Lott then says this
"basically" implies that "the free
market failed some people, so we
need to more equitably redistribute
its spoils."
How Obama's practically plati-
tudinous claim "implies" (or "ba-
sically implies," whatever that
means) Lott's reading is, to put it
very gently, unclear.
We cannot make words mean
anything we like a point that
needs to be taken very seriously
when it comes to matters of national
importance.
My advice to Johnathan Lott
would be to invest in a new diction-
ary before his next column is due
next week. The one he has now is
clearly no good.

Society needs to take a step back from technology overload


First realized I was a technology-lover
when I witnessed the power of Google.
No more encyclopedias, books or effort for
me, I thought. This six-letter word is going to
make the rest of high school a piece of cake.
I discovered I was actually a technology-
hater the first day I caught a glimpse of a guy
shouting into a hands-free cell phone headset.
In the words of Dee of "It's Always Sunny in
Philadelphia," I wondered if the guy rocking
the Bluetooth was part robot and part jack-
ass.
Since that unfortunate first sighting, I've
continued to witness the technological shack-
les relentlessly grind American carpals into
chalk.
The most horrifying aspect of this electron-
ic reign of terror is that we are at the mercy of
lithium-ion batteries, and there is no escape.
If you own a laptop, you better pray to
the recently mechanized gods your battery
lasts more than a year or at least putters
out before the end of the extended warranty
you purchased. Otherwise, your inconsistent


"Twittering" will leave your friends fright-
ened and befuddled because they couldn't
figure out what you did from 2:15 to 2:45 last
Wednesday afternoon.
Friends don't leave friends hanging on
Twitter.
There is no way to circumvent this prob-
lem. Society cannot function on desktops
alone the thought is laughable. What if you
need a vanilla latte and YouTube at the same
time? You can't have one without the other;
they go together like lamb and tuna fish.
Obviously, you aren't going to tote your
70-pound HP behemoth to the comer to
set up shop at your friendly neighborhood
Starbucks. Committing such a crime against
the technological dictatorship would result
in scoffs, eye-rolling and maybe even a good,
old-fashioned stoning.
Using newer technology like Google
phones and iPhones may seem like a solu-
tion to the cumbersome burden of desktops,
but these so-called breakthroughs only bring
you back to the lithium-ion palace to grovel at


E the feet of the almighty
battery.
Don't get me started
on the evils of the iPod.
The click-wheel plague
has laid waste to nearly
Adam Wynn every drop of congenial
letters@alligator.org human interaction left
flowing through the
blood of our species.
Once they went Nano, our white blood cells
didn't stand a chance.
The most identifiable player in the techno-
logical regime is also the combatant that de-
serves the majority of the blame for America's
gadget dependence: the cell phone.
The foot soldiers of this war, cell phones
toil in the trenches (rather, human ear canals)
for thousands of minutes per month. For their
troubles, they are broken on a daily basis.
Countless cell phones are left for dead in hot
tubs, Solo cups and toilets nationwide.
The success of the information infantry is
ensured by Americans' need to talk, text or


at least clutch a cell phone at all times for no
apparent reason. Thus, despite the ever-in-
creasing number of casualties, the cell phone
assault never wavers.
Millions of Americans are foolish enough
to buy into the notion that these technological
"advances" make life easier for all of us.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
These gadgets and gizmos are incessantly nib-
bling away at the corners of humanity.
We don't need to halt technological ad-
vances; President Harry Truman learned the
horrors of the no-holds-barred approach.
Instead, we need to reassess ourselves as so-
cial beings.
If we continue our current pace, one day
we'll all wake up in vats of translucent, pink
goo with USB ports implanted all over our
bodies.
In the event of this worst-case scenario
only one thing is certain: You will not want to
disconnect without properly ejecting first.

column appears on Fridays.

Calathes shoulders blame for defeat


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

It was a finish more suited for
March than January, but when
South Carolina's Zam Fredrick
handed UF a buzzer-beating
defeat Wednesday night, it felt
like deja vu.
No. 24 UF (16-3, 3-1
Southeastern Conference)
hoped to follow up its re-entry
into the national ranks with a
win, but in what seemed like
the blink of an eye, a missed
Chandler Parsons free throw
and a blown de-
fensive assign-
ment left the
Men's Gators shaking
Basketball their heads once
again.
Three seconds of shock were
followed by pandemonium in
Columbia, S.C.
As fans attempted to storm
the court, the distraught Gators
were left in their white cinder
block locker room, alone with
their thoughts.
While dejected teammates
sat behind a closed door, Nick
Calathes composed himself and
faced the media.
"They played better than
us," Calathes said. "But we'll be
ready (next time). We're going
to work hard and keep getting
better."
Calathes may have lost the
game, but perhaps he won
something even more impor-


tant.
He's long been the Gators'
general on the court, but stand-
ing outside that locker room
in a dimly lit hallway of the
Colonial Life Arena, Calathes


protected his men in a way he
never had before.
"You come across certain
guys who really, really love the
game, and he loves the game,"
UF coach Billy Donovan said.


"You know how important the
game is to him. That's some-
thing I respect.
"He's meant a lot to our
team."

enter the game, it's time for the other team

But there is one fact that might surprise
you: The two interior forces have never
played in a game together at the same
time.
That all could change very soon, may-

be even in the No. 15 Gators' (17-2, 3-1
Southeastern Conference) game against
Mississippi (13-6, 2-2 SEC) on Sunday at 2
p.m. in the O'Connell Center.
The duo has seen increased time on the
court lately and has brought a spark to the
team when starting post players Marshae
Dotson and Sharielle Smith have a seat on
the bench.
There has not been much of a drop-off, if
any at all, in the level of play when the two
enter the game, and Henry has only one ex-
planation for why that may be so.
"I guess it's because we're internation-
al," she said with a laugh.


Henry, a senior from Jamaica, and
Stewart, a freshman from England, have
built a relationship on and off the court be-
cause of their similar positions and foreign
backgrounds.
Stewart's father is Jamaican as well,
and it's something the two have fun with
around the rest of the team.
"I'm the only one who understands
her sometimes when she goes off on her
Jamaican rant," Stewart said.
The centers give each other advice
during practice and games, and it always

UF GYMNASTICS


Limping Gators prepare for Razorbacks


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer

Road meets may not be nearly
as fun, but for the UF gymnas-
tics team, Fayetteville, Ark., isn't
too shabby as a home away from
home.
The UF gymnastics team trav-
els there for its first road meet this
season and second Southeastern
Conference meet. The No. 1
Gators (2-0, 1-0 SEC) will look to
improve a perfect 18-0 lifetime re-
cord against the No. 8 Razorbacks
(2-1, 0-0 SEC) tonight at 8.
"(We) always hit (our routines)
closer on the road," UF coach
Rhonda Faehn said. "This team
has always done very well in
Arkansas."
If the Gators are to repeat
their historic success against the
Razorbacks, they will have to do so
by improving on a balance beam
performance that could have cost
them a win last Friday.
Faehn said in practice that All-
American Melanie Sinclair would
lead off on beam to begin the
match with a more mature and ag-
gressive competitor.
"We want to be able to see her
go out there and get the team off to
a good start," Faehn said.
Faehn added that the lineup
on uneven bars and floor exercise
will remain the same. The team
is ranked first nationally in both
events, and they were integral in
the win against Auburn.
If the team can muster the per-
formances on bars and floor they
did early this year, UF can notch
19 in a row against Arkansas.
The only thing possibly stand-
ing in the way of win No. 19 may
be a beat-up Gators team. Injuries
to Rebekah Zaiser, who is out for
the year with a broken foot, and


Amanda Castillo, who is nursing
bursitis in her ankle and is being
used sparingly, have depleted a bit
of the team's depth.
"Now that we don't have that
much depth, we need to fight for
every single handstand, pointed
toe, straight knees, stuck landing,"
Castillo said.
Less depth means more of the
brunt is placed on freshmen.
"You kind of just have to step
up to the plate and do it for your
team," said Elizabeth Mahlich.
The freshman competed in
three of the four events against
Auburn, including anchoring the
floor lineup with a 9.875.
Freshmen aren't the only ones
contributing more.
Junior Courtney Gladys, whose
task was taking over Zaiser's
spot leading off on beam, said,
"Rhonda always prepares us to be
able to step in at any moment."
And Castillo, who has been
relegated to more of a leader-off-
the-mat role, said she's aching to
be out on the floor but realizes she
needs to be rested for the end of
the season.
"It's killing me not to be out
there right now," Castillo said.
"This is something that has never
happened to me before. I've had
injuries but I've gotten over them
by the time competition season
comes around."
Castillo still planned to com-
pete on bars and beam Friday, but
will likely sit out floor and vault.
Faehn said the team shouldn't
be flustered by the fact that this is
the first road meet of the year.
"It's really not tremendously
different on the road, other than
just the crowd factor for us," she
said. "It shouldn't matter if there's
10,000 people cheering against
us."

UF seeks revenge against Vanderbilt on Sunday


DEFEAT, from page 14


The sickest man in South Carolina
Wednesday was Dan Werner.
Wemer, who Donovan often refers to as
his best defensive player, took a false step in
the game's final minutes that landed much
of the blame squarely on his shoulders.
"(Fredrick) got behind Dan on the play. I
thought Dan ... just put Alex (Tyus near the
basket) and (himself) back, and (Fredrick)
just got behind Dan. That's what it boiled


down to," Donovan said.
Neither Parsons nor Werner addressed
the media following the game.
The Gators left 4 points on the court in the
game's final 13 seconds because of missed
free throws.
"I've never been a big believer in moral
victories," Donovan said. "Do guys like
Chandler and Nick stay late in the gym and
take extra free throws? Does Dan Werner
provide the kind of leadership we need on
the floor late in the game? That's what I'm
anxious to see."


Now, UF will try to make sure one heart-
break doesn't lead to a second when they
make the trip to Nashville, Tenn., to take on
Vanderbilt (12-6, 1-3 SEC) Sunday on nation-
al television.
The Gators lost a gut-wrenching 61-58
game at Memorial Gym last season when
Calathes committed a backcourt violation
with 24 seconds to play.
"Had we won (Wednesday) night, it
would have only gone down as one 'W.' We
lost, and it's one game," Donovan said. "We
have to rebound here."

seems like they're laughing
about something.
Whether it's in pregame
meals, in the locker room or
during a game, their likable per-
sonalities draw their teammates
to them and create a fun envi-
ronment for a squad that's in
the heart of conference play.
"If somebody fouls us be-
cause we're big, they never real-


ly give us the benefit," Stewart
said. "If we've got girls hanging
off our arms and they won't call
anything, we laugh about that,
but that's the game."
Assistant coach Susie
Gardner, who works with the
post players, said she has imag-
ined what it would be like with
Stewart and Henry side-by-
side.
"As soon as SEC play started,
we started thinking that would
be a great tandem because

we have every single game,"
Gardner said. "We have toyed

tice. On paper
Women's and looking at
Basketball them standing
on the baseline
and walking
through the airport, you think,
'Man, what a great tandem that
would be.'"
Stewart is optimistic about


the possibility of soon playing
alongside her fellow height-
advantaged, foreign-born team-
mate.
"They're planning to,"
Stewart said. "We've been prac-
ticing together. When a big
game comes up when we need
a height advantage, the Twin
Towers will be there.
"I can't wait until they actu-
ally do put us in."
The rest of the SEC might not
feel the same way.

of games from any genera-

Pong: After all, isn't this the
original sports video game?
You can't beat Pong for inno-
vation, though the game gets
boring after a while. But this
most basic form of table tennis
on the most basic of all video-
game systems laid the ground-
work for future games like Top
Spin and Virtua Tennis.
NBA Jam Tournament
Edition: A personal favorite,
NBA Jam may have cemented
flashy dunking in the minds
of a generation. Where else
can you go back in time and
play as the Seattle Supersonics
with Shawn Kemp and Gary
Payton? Where else do the
Mailman and John Stockton
hook up with ease? And the
turbo system built into Jam
became a staple for plenty of
sports games in the future.
Midway's NFL Blitz series
was a direct descendant of
NBA Jam.
NHL '94: This masterpiece
brought the one-timer to hock-
ey video games. It also fea-
tured smooth gameplay, shoo-
tout mode and player profiles.
This game is the reason I love
hockey, and it gets my vote,
hands down. But don't let me
persuade you I'm prob-
ably one of 100 people on this
campus who is passionate
about hockey to the point of
screaming at the television. I
hate to think of this game be-
ing left out of the top five, but
I wouldn't be surprised if it
were absent from the final poll
considering my audience.
Tecmo Super Bowl: You didn't
think I'd forget about this one,
did you? Not much needs
to be said about this classic
Nintendo football game. Two
words really do justice to
this game's awesomeness: Bo
Jackson. Tecmo Super Bowl
also included the ability to
play an entire NFL season.
Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!:
The name on the box might
not have the same impact it
did in 1987, but Punch-Out
still hits hard. You guide Little
Mac through progressively
tougher boxing matches until
the final duel with Tyson.
Ken Griffey, Jr. Presents
Major League Baseball:
Assistant Sports Editor Adam
Berry simply says he would
describe this game as "the
truth." Who cares if you didn't
get to control real players
when you can take the field
with as "D. Crime" and "A.

That's all for this list. Send

counting.
