LOCAL ELECTIONS


Registration for city elections ends today


Today is the last day to register
to vote in the March 24 Gainesville
city elections.
Two City Commission seats, Dis-
trict 1 and At-Large 1, are up for re-
election. In addition, two city charter
amendments are on the ballot.
Charter Amendment 1 would le-


galize discrimination based on sexu-
al orientation or gender identity.
Amendment 2 would require the
city to obtain voter approval for the
sale or conversion of land used for
conservation, recreation or cultural
purposes.
To register to vote, visit VoteAla-


chua.com or call the Supervisor of
Elections at 352-374-5252.
Mail-in voter registration ap-
plications must be postmarked by
today. Absentee ballots can be ob-
tained through the Web site or the
Supervisor of Elections.
Requests to vote by mail are due


by March 18.
Voters must be Gainesville resi-
dents to participate in city elections.
Pam Carpenter, Alachua County
Supervisor of Elections, said it is
particularly important for students
to update their registration informa-
tion if they have moved in or out of


city limits.
"It's always important for the
students, as well, to be involved in
the local elections," Carpenter said.
"They are living here and the rules,
the laws, the ordinances are going to
impact their lives."

Students, faculty protest Charter 1


Veronica Barrere / Alligator
A UF student protests Charter Amendment 1 Friday outside of Tigert Hall, where
the march ended. The protesters presented a letter to a UF representative that
affirmed the student body's opposition to the amendment.


* THE AMENDMENT WILL BE
ON THE BALLOT MARCH 24.

By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

About 80 UF students and faculty
members marched through campus
on Friday in protest of the Charter
Amendment 1, which would legalize
discrimination based on sexual orien-
tation. Protesters presented a letter for
UF President Bernie Machen in hopes
of gaining administrative support for
their cause.
The proposed charter will be voted
on during city elections on March 24,
after a local conservative group col-
lected enough signatures from regis-
tered voters in Alachua County to get
the issue on the ballot.
If passed, the legislation could af-
fect Gainesville's gay community be-
cause it would make discrimination
based on sexual identity or sexual ori-
entation legal.
Employees could be fired, refused
service at a restaurant or kicked out of
their home, according to pamphlet is-
sued by Equality is Gainesville's Busi-
ness, which hosted the protest.
The rally started on Turlington
Plaza, where marchers chanted, "Hey,
hey, ho, ho, Amendment 1 has got to
go," before marching through the Pla-
za of Americas and coming to a halt
at Tigert Hall.
Garrett Garner, president of the
organization, presented a letter to
Interim Dean of Students Paige Cran-
dall, who met them on the doorsteps
of Tigert. The letter was addressed

'Slumdog' rules Oscars with 8 prizes, best picture
LOS ANGELES (AP) "Slumdog Millionaire" took the best-
picture Academy Award and seven other Oscars on Sunday, in-
cluding director for Danny Boyle, whose ghetto-to-glory story par-
alleled the film's unlikely rise to Hollywood's summit.
The other top winners: Kate Winslet, best actress for "The
Reader"; Sean Penn, best actor for the title role of "Milk"; Heath
Ledger, supporting actor for "The Dark Knight"; and Penelope
Cruz, supporting actress for "Vicky Cristina Barcelona."
"Just to say to Mumbai, all of you who helped us make the
film and all of those of you who didn't, thank you very much. You
dwarf even this guy," Boyle said, holding up his directing Oscar.

Two men


shot over


weekend
By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
Kemmets@alligator.org

Officials believe two shootings at two
24-hour restaurants early Saturday morn-
ing may be related.
After speaking with witnesses, the
Gainesville Police Department got an arrest
warrant for Corey Lavon Gregg, 24, who of-
ficials believe may be the shooter in both in-
cidents, said GPD spokesman Keith Kameg.
Gregg's bail was posted at $500,000, Kameg
said.
The first shooting was at about 2:20
a.m. at the Krispy Kreme on
Southwest 13th Street.
oNew Eugene Harris, 25, of
N-ews Ocala, was standing in the
parking lot when a man shot
at him three times and hit him in the arm,
Kameg said.
Kameg said Harris was treated and re-
leased from the hospital.
The second shooting took place around
2:45 a.m. at the International House of Pan-
cakes on Southwest 13th Street.
An Alachua County Sheriff's deputy
heard gunshots when he was going to
IHOP as a part of ASO's routine patrol.
When he arrived at IHOP, he saw people
run away and cars drive out of the parking
lot, said ASO spokesman Steve Maynard.
Officials found Antrawn Bernard Milton,
25, of Ocala on the ground with a gunshot
wound in his leg. Milton was immediately
taken to the hospital.

New dating site offers good, clean fun for students


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Staff Writer
Kemmets@alligator.org

It starts with a flirt.
It's not as nerve-wracking as it
seems.
It only takes the click of a button.
But who knows? Soon it might
lead to a Facebook friendship, a
phone chat, a date or a relationship.
DownToEarth.com is a dating


Web site geared toward college stu-
dents, and it is the seventh largest
free dating site, said Jacob Solotaroff,
the site's general manager.
Since its launch in January, the
site has attracted more than 100,000
daters, with 1,500 people joining
daily, he said.
There are 200 Gainesville singles
on the site and more than 2,000
within two-and-a-half hours of the
city, Sotolaroff said. There are more


"I would notjoin a dating
service where the guests
are all much older."
Kaitlyn Cava
UF student

than 23,000 people between 18 and
25, he said.
"As a college student you're a lot
more likely to meet someone going


online than if you go to parties with
the same people or the same popular
bar that you went to the last several
weekends in a row," he said.
When the site's construction be-
gan in 2008, there weren't any clean,
free dating sites, Sotolaroff said.
"I was shocked when I first found
out that on some major free sites you
can say you are married right on the
registration form," he said. "They're
actively encouraging cheating."


While the site monitors lewd be-
havior, members also report each
other through a rating system.
After daters meet, they can rate
the accuracy of each other's profiles.
UF student Kaitlyn Cava said she
had never thought about joining a
dating Web site.
"I might if it was a student pro-
gram where I would have the op-
portunity to meet men I actually
have commonalities with," she said.


Trustees, Machen want UF to focus on grad programs


* MACHEN AND THE BOARD SEEK
TO IMPROVE RESEARCH STATUS.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

Lake Wauburg glistened in the morning
sun and a faint fire flickered in the Lake Cy-
press Lodge's stone fireplace as UF's Board of
Trustees, the university's highest governing
body, got down to the gritty business of bud-
get cuts on Friday.
Prompted by UF President Bernie Machen
to decide where UF's priorities should lie
when it makes millions of dollars in cuts this
summer, the board told Machen they want
UF's mission to focus more on graduate edu-


cation.
"Do we wanna be the best undergraduate
university in the nation, or do we wanna be
the best research university in the nation?"
asked Trustee Earl Powell. "That's the ques-
tion here."
Powell said the graduate programs that at-
tract the most grant money should be at the
core of UF's mission.
"Because the rubber meets the road when
the government sends you money to produce
programs," he said, adding that UF has no
trouble attracting undergraduate students.
Trustee Joelen Merkel agreed.
"Undergraduates don't really need our fo-
cus that we've given them the last, you know,
eight years," Merkel said. "They are going to
be here."
Trustee Roland Daniels argued focusing on


graduate programs would also benefit under-
graduates.
"If we can prioritize in terms of the research
mission that we have, the undergraduates will
improve, as well, in time," he said.
But Trustee and Student Body President
Kevin Reilly said he was concerned trustees
were taking UF's undergraduates for granted
and said he didn't want UF to lose its identity.
"I think the undergraduate
culture is what drives a lot of
Local the campus culture," he said. "I
News think if we lose that mission too
much, we lose a lot of what is
the University of Florida."
Machen assured trustees that UF wasn't
abandoning its undergraduates.
"We are not walking away from a commit-
ment to undergraduate education," he said.


"We can't."
But he said the state's community colleges
are offering more and more four-year degrees,
tempting potential undergraduates with bar-
gain prices.
"It's a Kmart education, but they are gon-
na do it," he said, adding UF could compete
against them but questioned why it would
want to.
"Why don't we move on to a more special-
ized market?" he asked.
Machen said the move would involve ex-
panding UF's reach throughout the state with
new research centers.
Trustees agreed, however, that UF's new
persona could be a tough sell.
"I think 95 percent of the people in this state
have no appreciation for graduate education,"
said Trustee Dianna Morgan.

District sets record with 40 National Merit finalists


By EMILY FUGGETTA
Alligator Writer

Watch out, college students -
there are some smart high-schoolers
in Alachua County moving into the
spotlight.
Forty students at five Alachua


County high schools qualified as
finalists in the National Merit Schol-
arship Program, setting a district
record with seven more finalists
than last year, according to an Ala-
chua County Public Schools news
release.
More than half of the 40 finalists


were from Eastside High School,
and Principal Jeff Charbonnet attri-
butes the school's success to the In-
ternational Baccalaureate program
offered there.
"Our students are simply pre-
pared with a high-quality educa-
tion," he said.


Finalists also came from Buch-
holz, Gainesville, Loften and Santa
Fe High Schools.
In order to participate in the
program, students must be among
the highest national scorers on the
Preliminary SAT/National Merit
Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/


NMSQT).
The committee also evaluates
academic records, school curricula,
recommendations from school offi-
cials, leadership and activities, and
essays written by the finalists, who
last year received more than $36 mil-
lion in scholarships.


Testing benefits new drug


* NEW GENETIC TESTING HELPS
DETERMINE DOSAGE FOR WARFARIN.

By REBECCA WEISS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Doctors prescribing Warfarin, a blood-
thinning medication, will now be able to use
genetic testing as a means of estimating the
initial dosage size for their patients.
Data collected from 350 patients at Shands
at UF and the Malcolm Randall VA Medical
Center were combined with other interna-
tional studies to show that a person's genes
play a role in how the drug will affect their
blood flow.
Warfarin is an anti-coagulant, also known
as a blood thinner, which helps to prevent
clot formation in the blood and is given to
those who are at risk for blood clots. Warfa-
rin works by inhibiting Vitamin K-dependent
factors in the body, which contains proteins
that deal with blood clotting.
According to Julie Johnson, director for
UF's Center for Pharmacogenomics, about
two million Americans are currently taking
Warfarin.
"Figuring out the right dose for the right
person can be really tricky," she said. "The
dose required can range from 1 milligram
per day to 10 or 15 milligrams per day."
Patients are normally started off with a 5
milligram per day dose, which is then adjust-
ed after seeing how the body and blood flow
reacts to the medicine.
However, problems arise when patients
are given too much or too little of the medi-
cine. If a patient is given too much, they have
a period of increased risk of fatal bleeding.
But, if they are not given enough, they have
an increased risk of clot formation, which can
lead to a stroke.
"Warfarin is a difficult drug, although it's
used in lots of patients," said Dr. Marc Zum-
berg, clinical assistant professor of medicine
in the division of Hematology and Oncology
at UF's College of Medicine, who was not in-
volved in the study. "The dose is dependent
on a lot of things such as diet and use of dif-


ferent medications."
For these reasons, Zumberg said patients'
blood levels often fluctuate, causing dosage
amount to change as well.
"We have to follow their levels very close-
ly," he said.
The study showed variations of two genes
could control how much of an initial dosage
a patient would need, thus eliminating most
of the guesswork done when initially pre-
scribing medicine to the patients.
"One of the genes makes the protein that
metabolizes Warfarin in the liver, affecting
how quickly or slowly it will break the drug
down," Johnson said. "The other gene makes
the protein that the Warfarin acts on, and so,
it influences how much protein is present."
The more protein present in the body, the
higher amount of Warfarin needed.
About 46 percent of the patients in the
study benefitted from these genetic tests be-
cause they did not need the average 5 milli-
grams of Warfarin usually prescribed.
"The dose is dependent on a lot of
things, such as diet and use of dif-
ferent medications."
Dr. Marc Zumberg
UF Clinical assistant professor of medicine

"Some people require less than 3 milli-
grams or greater than 7 milligrams," Johnson
said. "It's a pretty significant overdose or
underdose."
Zumberg said genetic variations indicate
a part, but not all, of how much doctors need
to prescribe. He believes a patient's diet and
use of other medication also plays a role in
detrimining dosage.
"I'm not convinced it's a huge gain yet,"
he said. "I think it will get you to the right
dose quicker, but I'm not convinced how
quickly you'll get the information."
Zumberg's biggest concerns are cost ef-
fectiveness and turn around time for test re-
sults He believes that doctors should use the
genetic information if it's readily available,
"but it's not the end-all and be-all of Warfa-
rin," he said.

Ceremony held for


Gov. Crist unveils


budget proposal

BY THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

Gov. Charlie Crist unveiled his $66.5 billion budget pro-
posal for the 2009-2010 fiscal year on Friday.
Under his proposal, the state's universities will get almost
$3.6 billion, including tuition revenues, which is about $270
million more than the amount set aside by the current year's
budget, according to Crist's budget Web site.
The amount includes about $131 million from the econom-
ic stimulus bill signed by President Barack Obama last week.
His budget is only a recommendation. The real budget is
determined by the Florida Legislature during
State its spring session, which runs from March 3 to
News May 1.
The total budget is about $1 billion bigger
than the current year's budget, according to the site.
Crist is expecting $4.7 billion in stimulus money next year
and $12.2 billion over three years.
Crist also proposes a base tuition increase of 5 percent for
the state's universities and community colleges.
All universities, but not community colleges, will have the
right to raise tuition by up to 15 percent if a tuition bill passed
by the Senate's Higher Education Committee last week be-
comes law. It would affect almost all students who enrolled
after July 1, 2007.


Although construction began
in December, about 90 people at-
tended the official groundbreaking
ceremony on Saturday for William
R. Hough Hall, a $23 million build-
ing being constructed for graduate
business students at UF.
The event featured speeches
from UF President Bernie Machen,
as well as UF alumnus Bill Hough,
whose $30 million donation funded
the 70,000-square-foot building.
Later Hough and Machen
donned construction hats and held
golden shovels to pose for pictures.
They were also joined by Hough's
family and UF mascots Albert and
Alberta.
Hough said the name of the
building is intended to honor Wil-
liam R. Hough & Co., the invest-
ment banking firm he founded af-
ter graduating with UF's first MBA
class in 1948.
The three-story building will
include meeting rooms, student
lounges, and larger hallways and
other open areas, where students
and faculty can talk after lectures,
said Howie Ferguson, the assistant
director and senior project manager
of UF Facilities Planning & Con-
struction.
"So, there's a lot of very thought-


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Contributing Writer


ful spaces in this building beyond
the classrooms," Ferguson said.
Rick Rowe of Rowe Architects, a
company involved with the project,
said Hough Hall, which is located
at the northeast end of campus by
the Southwest 13th Street entrance,
will also have five classrooms and
two seminar rooms.
Rowe mentioned other features,
such as a central court, a catering
area, a board room and a financial
market lab.
"We're going to keep doing
the things that make us
the flagship for this state."
Bernie Machen
UF President

The building, which will be
LEED certified and energy efficient,
is expected to open in fall 2010.
Because it is located near historic
buildings such as Bryan Hall, the
structure's design will be modern
yet respectful of its historical con-
text, Rowe said.
While Ferguson noted the facil-
ity's value as a tool for recruiting
and retaining faculty and students,
he said the building has led to the
loss of about 118 parking spots.
A new parking garage will be
built that will make up for this loss,
he said.

Still, UF student Kevin Mesmer,
who is pursuing a master's degree
in finance, said he is looking for-
ward to the building's completion
because it will provide a home for
graduate business students.
Currently, the students have
no building to call their own, he
said, and their classes are scattered
around everywhere.
In his speech at the event, Ma-
chen recognized other important
opportunities the building will cre-
ate.
He said the building represents
a chance to train the new business
leaders of tomorrow and serves as
a great symbol during a time when
the business community is in need
of some new leadership.
In addition, Machen said, as con-
struction at universities across the
country grinds to a halt, the new
building shows UF is continuing to
move forward.
"We're going to keep doing the
things that make us the flagship for
this state," he said.
In an interview before his
speech, Machen pointed to the eco-
nomic implications of the current
construction.

Making Progress

Party appeals to best

interest of students

It may not be "sexy," but one Student Government par-
ty doesn't care how their platform will look on a campaign
poster.
Billing itself as the party with a vested interest in "getting
it done," the Progress Party's not-made-for-TV key points
offer UF students something rarely associated with SG a
chance for results. For this and other reasons, the Alligator
endorses the Progress Party in this semester's SG elections.
With a self-proclaimed "defensive-minded" financial ap-
proach to handling the SG budget, Progress seeks to remedy
the currently inefficient method in which campus groups re-
ceive funding.
Under its plan, an online database will be developed to
track how organizations utilize monies allocated to them
from SG to cut down on unnecessary spending that could be
budgeted elsewhere.
Currently, SG relies upon a three-ring binder as the sole
record of how the money is being divided an antiquated
approach that may breed error and dishonesty.
Progress hopes to create a budget task force to electroni-
cally monitor how a group uses its funding so that organi-
zations that do not demonstrate growth are not automati-
cally provided funding year after year. If implemented, these
seemingly small changes could potentially net SG $100,000
- not to mention a sound archiving system that doesn't stand
a chance to be lost or stolen. By embracing technology, the
Progress Party will be able to forge a greater bond with the
currently isolated SG outsiders who feel a sense of discon-
nect.
Another crucial component to Progress's platform stems
from its desire to increase "insourcing" on the UF campus.
This would place greater emphasis on providing grants, jobs
and contracts to students instead of looking beyond The Gator
Nation to outside sources. Instead of a private company de-
veloping GPS technology for on-campus transportation, an
"insourcing" approach would have called for engineering
students to receive a grant to develop the product. This ap-
proach could also be used to save UF money, for example
by using computer science students to implement wireless
Internet in dorms instead of paying an outside contractor.
Beyond the scope of its platform, Progress made clear
its selfless intentions if elected to SG office. The candidates
aren't running to pad their resumes with hopes of landing
at top-notch law school or to rub elbows with Bernie in his
private box at a Gators game in fact, if elected, candidate for
Student Body President Ben Dictor will sell the tickets and
donate money to charity. Simply put, Progress seeks to en-
sure that your Activity and Service fees are being put to the
most efficient use possible.
The Progress Party does not stand for an anti-Greek ver-
sus Greek mentality or employing exclusionary tactics with
regard to who can be a part of their mission. Rather, Prog-
ress looks to recruit individuals based upon what they can
offer in terms of making necessary change for the good of the
entire Student Body. Whether you are Greek or a computer
geek, Progress will welcome you with open arms so long as
you are a hardworking and intelligent individual.
What impresses the Editorial Board most about Ben Dic-
tor and his running mates is their honest-to-goodness hope
to bring people together. We were struck by their sincere in-
tentions of having the best interests of the students at heart,
rather than the tired practice of sticking to party lines and
partisan bickering. You won't find empty promises of a park-
ing garage that will never be built or the elimination of on-
campus newspaper programs, but rather blue-collar grit that
will demand transparency and newfound cohesiveness.

Put aside apathy, vote in SG elections
The final days of the pamphlet-pushing party loyalists idea of converting the UF We
haranguing me on Turlington Plaza to vote for their can- mail system to Gmail first, c
didate in the impending Student Government election are whose idea it was to propos
upon us. They do a marvelous job, those pamphlet push- a new parking garage for stu
ers, because once again I'm devoting another 500 words to dents. Instead, most of us cor
their collective cause. cern ourselves with the Dett


As I expressed last week, our officials in SG can't be
taken very seriously when only 10 to 15 percent of their
constituents vote them into office. Consequentially, if no
one really votes for them, then what power do they truly
hold?
The position becomes a vanity, a simple check on a re-
sume, a mere pre-audition before stepping into the dis-
cerning glares of Simon, Paula, and Randy, aka the voting
populace of local and even state politics.
But those are all valid reasons to run, as long as you
keep your constituents views close to heart. Together, they
manage more than $14 million for thousands of UF stu-
dents. Nearly everything you touch or come across as a
student at UF has some affiliation with SG. Regional Tran-
sit System buses? SG. Funding for the litany of student
organizations? SG. Gov. Sarah Palin was qualified for the
vice presidency on fewer responsibilities!
So why, then, do so few of us vote?
Besides our notorious laziness as college students and
the lack of online voting, the most salient reason why so
few will vote in the next two days is that there are scarcely
any ideological differences between the parties. Ideologi-
cal differences are what make American politics entertain-
ing. Who cares about the issues and proposed solutions
when we can bicker over abortion and the differences be-
tween conservative and liberal ideologies?
Arguably, the same holds true for politics at the uni-
versity level. Few voters care about who came up with the

bickering between the parties -
an art that in this election cycle
the Orange and Blue Party has
perfected, leaving the Unite
Party to rise above the trifling


Most of us engaged enough to vote aren't driven to the
polls because of the issues, but because of the screaming
headlines on this very paper that alert us to the manifold
of election complaints filed by the parties each week.
In this ideological vacuum, what's left but petty dis-
course? Perhaps Alligator columnist Johnathan Lott was
correct last Thursday when he endorsed "your friend" for
the election. Who else can you vote for when one or more
parties change or emerge each cycle? Ideas are cheap, but
political theatrics sell.
I can only hope that in the wake of President Barack
Obama's historic campaign, which shook hundreds of
thousands of young Americans out of our natural politi-
cally apathetic state, this SG election will see a higher turn-
out than in years past.
I wouldn't mind seeing some vindication for the Turl-
ington Plaza pamphlet-pushers, and I think I'll miss their
determined countenance come Thursday. For my other
alternative is another cockeyed and anonymous angry
preacher damning me to eternal hellfire as I walk to class.

Letter to the Editor
Johnson's memorial proposal offensive
During the closing arguments of the Stu-
dent Government debate, Unite Party's Jordan
Johnson proposed the creation of a memo-
rial at the Reitz Union to showcase "minor-
ity achievements." He touted this project as a
positive step forward in the advancement of
diversity on campus.
As the former president of the Cuban
American Student Association at UF and an


active member in the Hispanic community, I
am offended at Johnson's proposal.
Creating a memorial to show that people
"that look like you" can also achieve on cam-
pus is patronizing and condescending.
It segregates the student body and sets mi-
nority students apart from the unified Gator
Nation. A true celebration of diversity is the
acknowledgement that we are all members of
one community; our achievements shouldn't


be qualified as coming from Hispanics, Afri-
can-Americans, Asian Americans, or Cauca-
sians.
At a time when the President of the United
States is a member of a minority group, John-
son should know that true diversity means
working together and moving forward for
progress, not separating students by race.
I hope students from all backgrounds come
together and make it clear to Jordan Johnson


that creating false dichotomies in the student
body is not the right way to celebrate diversity
on campus. All members of this student body
should celebrate our achievements together,
not according to our individual ethnicities and
cultural backgrounds. While I am sure John-
son had the best intentions in his proposal, he
missed the point.

Overheard cell phone conversations draw ire, boil blood


What is it that's so frus-
trating about listening
to only one side of a con-
versation?
I can sit sometimes even com-
placently between two people
having a conversation on the bus.
In this situation I'm at least privy
to what's going on, have a sense
of wholeness, can chime in when
relevant and even glean some in-
sight into a stranger's mind.
It's listening to half of a phone
conversation on the bus that near-
ly kills me. The peeve finally hit
its pinnacle when I had to listen to
a girl try to describe the Oaks Mall


extremely loudly to her ostensibly
deaf friend:
"The mall. The place with
stores. On University. (Actually,
it's on Newberry). Where people
like to go shopping. mall. mall.
mall. mall."
After listening to what was ba-
sically a game of Taboo devoid of
any enjoyment, I was then subject-
ed to listening to a conversation
about going to the Swamp (she
was so excited that she said "cool
beans") and an entire narration of
the bus ride's events (minus me
blatantly mouthing "hang up").
The thing is, 90 percent of all

Why do people feel the need
to talk on the phone about in-
nate shit? Try an iPod or a book
- something edifying. There's no
situation that requires you to call
someone on a bus apart from be-
ing a character in "Jeepers Creep-
ers 2" or "Speed."
Text messaging is another al-
ternative. With a quick staccato


of your index fingers and thumbs
you can avoid screaming in my
ears and making an ass out of
yourself at the same time.
I understand that we were
raised when self-esteem psychol-
ogy was popular among parents
and educators, but do you need to
stay affirmed so badly that you're
willing to permanently attach a
phone to your ear?
When I was seven, there was a
Goosebumps book I liked in which
one of the "choose your own end-
ings" lands you R.L. Stine's ver-
sion of Hell -- watching George
Washington cross the Potomac


for eternity. It was probably my
favorite Goosebumps book, but I
had a hard time buying that any-
one could consider sitting and ob-
serving more torturous than fire
and brimstone.
I've since realized that spend-
ing 40 minutes listening to you
describe what you're wearing to
your next sorority function is an
entirely plausible candidate for
my conception of ultimate suffer-
ing. So please, have some mercy
and hang up the phone.

Musicians, attorneys examine new music industry


BY ANA GONI-LESSAN
Alligator Writer

Hopeful artists must first garner a fol-
lowing before attracting a record label in
today's music climate, said an attorney
and musician at a conference Saturday.
Musicians, music managers and attor-
neys held discussion panels to help people


who aspire to be in the music industry un-
derstand the business side at the Seventh
Annual UF Music Law Conference at the
Levin College of Law.
David Beame, an attorney, manager
and musician, said musicians now have
to do more work up-front in order to get
noticed.
"Major labels don't have that money


anymore," he said. "They're not sign-
ing things unless you get the
On work done."
Campus A musician needs to be
ready before finding a man-
ager, he said.
"It's about hustlin' your ass off," he
said.
Martin Atkins, who has worked with


Nine Inch Nails and owns a record compa-
ny, said he believes the old music industry
model is dead and welcomes new changes
through avenues like Creative Commons
licensing, a copyright method that allows
anybody the right to use the music.
"I think it gives legal access to people to
do cool stuff," he said. "It can breathe life
into original material."


Charter 1 to raise hostility


PROTEST, from page 1

to UF President Bernie Machen
and expressed student and staff
opposition to the legislation, en-
couraging administrators to take
an active stance against it.
UF librarian Flo Turcotte said
she participated in the march
because the charter, if passed,
would create a hostile climate in
Gainesville.
"When one person's rights are
taken away, everyone is threat-
ened," she said. "It doesn't have
to affect you directly for you to
become concerned."
UF anthropology senior
Loren Jones agreed and said
Gainesville residents should care
about maintaining equality.
"(Gainesville) will hurt its
reputation as an open and wel-
come community," she said,
adding that Machen's support is
vital.
"Unfortunately, students'
voices don't seem to be heard,"
she said. "We want an admin-
istration who speaks on our be-
half. He has credibility. His sup-
port will go a long way."
Garner said he wanted UF's
administration to join alongside


the faculty senate and the stu-
dent senate, which both passed
resolutions last week speaking
out against the legislation.
Many of the protesters sported
Student Government party shirts
and took a break from campaign-
ing for upcoming SG elections to
march.
Orange and Blue Party Sen.
Ben Cavataro, who co-authored
the student senate resolution
against Charter to Amendment
1, took part in the protest.
He said students should take
an active interest in citywide is-
sues.
"We don't live in a bubble,"
Cavataro said. "What the city
does affects UF."
UF English senior Andrew
Hix, who also participated in
the rally, said it is important for
students to vote in the city elec-
tions.
He said the legislation was
reminiscent of racially discrimi-
natory actions from the 1960s.
"It took a lot of money and
time to do something that
shouldn't have been done in the
first place," he said. "This issue
represents a serious backslide in
civil rights."

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL

Gators win with balance


EEW


UF guard Erving Walker drives with the ball during the second half of the Gators' 82-68
win against Vanderbilt on Saturday in the O'Connell Center.


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

For the first time this season, Nick Cal-
athes didn't steal the show.
And for the first time all year, he didn't
have to.
The Gators had five players score in
double figures and shot a season-best 61.2
percent from the field during their 82-68 win
against Vanderbilt (16-10, 5-7 Southeastern
Conference) on Saturday.
It was the Gators' (21-6, 8-4 SEC) most
complete game of the season, and with the
race for the SEC still wide open, one they
had to have.
The victory extended UF's home win-
ning streak to 17 games.
Alex Tyus (10 points) and Kenny Kadji (7
points) dominated the paint, Erving Walker
knocked down open threes and Dan Wemer
didn't miss.
Walker, who scored 10 of UF's last 17
points, led the Gators with a team-high 17
points.
"Nick, we know he's our go-to guy, and
he's led us in a lot of big games, but I think
we needed a game like this," Walker said.
UF started fast, holding Vanderbilt to
only 2 points in the game's first 8:15 and
jumped out to an early 12-2 lead.
Dan Werner had his best shooting night
of the season, finishing with 11 points, and
was a perfect 4 for 4 from the field.
"You try to figure out what they can do,


but they just have a lot of weapons," Van-
derbilt coach Kevin Stallings said. "When
all of their weapons are playing well, it's
hard."
The Gators, who came into Saturday's
game last in the SEC in blocked shots, sent
back seven against the Commodores four
of which came courtesy of Kadji.
"Kadji's blocks were legitimate. The oth-
ers, I think they probably just tripped and
fell into our guys who happened to have
their hands up," UF coach Billy Donovan
joked. "Dan Werner had one, too. I'd like to
go back and see that play."
"Nick, we know he's our go-to
guy, and he's led us in a lot of big
games, but I think we needed a
game like this."
Erving Walker
UF freshman guard

Calathes scored 33 points a week ago
against Kentucky and came within one re-
bound of a triple-double against Georgia in
the following game.
The Gators lost both of those contests.
Saturday, the sophomore deferred to his
teammates, and UF played arguably its best
basketball of the season.
"(Nick has) carried our team, but it's
good some of the other guys stepped up
and carried the load," Donovan said. "He

To explain why he left her standing at the

UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

Seniors sent off with win


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

Sha Brooks and Marshae Dotson had
that look in their eyes the one that says
they're not going to be denied.
For two seniors who have been the life-
blood of the program for the past four years,
it could not have been any other way.
Brooks and Dotson, along with fellow
seniors Aneika Henry and Kim Critton, led
No. 15 UF (23-5, 9-4 Southeastern Confer-
ence) on Senior Day to an 82-66 win against
South Carolina (10-15, 2-10 SEC) in the
O'Connell Center on Sunday.
They won't soon forget it, either.
"I don't think it would've really mattered
who we played today," UF coach Amanda
Butler said. "This group right here, in par-
ticular, that was disappointed last year on
Depree (Bowden)'s Senior Night knew how
important this was. That's what you want
from your seniors is a sense of urgency.
"There was a very confident little twin-
kle in their eye before we took the court, no
doubt."
The Gators avenged last season's Senior
Day loss to the Gamecocks, sending this
year's group out on top. They compiled a
14-1 record on their home court this season.
Brooks totaled 24 points, eight assists and
six rebounds, while Dotson added 18 points
and five rebounds, and each provided the
leadership their team needed.
None of it came easy.
South Carolina kept UF scurrying much
of the game with its physical, aggressive
play, cutting the Gators' lead to 3 with
about 13 minutes left and vying for the up-
set again. Any hope the Gamecocks had of a
comeback was dashed when Brooks turned
a 3-point play into 4 after making a three,
getting fouled and sinking a free throw with


1:20 remaining.
"I was just thinking, if (Lonnika Thomp-
son) can get me this ball, then I'm going to
hit the shot, and she did, and I got fouled,"
Brooks said. "It was a great motivation for
our team."
Guard Kim Critton entered the game for
the first time with 2:11 remaining, and all
four seniors were then taken off the court
together one final time to a standing ovation
with 21 seconds left.
"I'm glad we went out with a
bang. We had fun out there, we
had a great crowd, and that's
how you want to go out."
Marshae Dotson
UF senior forward


"It's what they deserve," Butler said.
"They put in so much time and so much
energy and give up so much of themselves,
their bodies on a daily basis, the commit-
ment and dedication. It was, no doubt, their
moment."
Many of the fans stuck around for a
post-game ceremony recognizing the se-
niors and all their accomplishments, which
were enough to leave the public address an-
nouncer catching his breath afterward.
"I'm glad we went out with a bang,"
Dotson said. "We had fun out there, we had
a great crowd, and that's how you want to
go out."
Brooks said she'd rank this game up
there as the most memorable of her career,
ahead of home wins over Tennessee earlier
this season and LSU her freshman year.
"It's our last game here," Brooks said.
"We're seniors and we're getting ready to
graduate, so of course you're going to al-
ways remember your senior night."

just two runs Sunday. Both pitchers gave up runs in the first in-
ning before shutting down the Cardinals the rest of the game.
"The thing I was most proud of, with both (Panteliodis)
and Nick, was they settled down, and they gave us a chance to
win," UF coach Kevin O' Sullivan said. "Often times when you
have a young pitcher out there, 2 runs turn into 3, and 3 turns
into 4, and the next thing you know there is a leadoff walk, and
things snowball out of control."
Before they took the mound, the two young pitchers saw
their teammate show how to dominate a game.


Senior ace Patrick Keating surrendered 3 runs while strik-
ing out seven over seven innings in the Gators' season opener
Friday. All three hurlers' pitch counts were at 75, making their
performances even more impressive.
While Keating (1-0, 2.57) deserved the game
ball Friday night, right fielder Riley Cooper stole
the show Saturday. Besides going 2 for 4 at the
Baseball plate, he prevented Louisville's Phil Wunderlich
from tying the game in the fourth.
A wide receiver for the football team, Cooper displayed his
leaping abilities by robbing Wunderlich of a homer that would
have been out of Cooper's reach if it had been hit any farther.
"It was a pretty good ways (over the fence)," Cooper said.


"That was the highest I could jump."
Mooney's late-game heroics trumped Cooper's catch, but
he might never have gotten the chance if it weren't for another
community college transfer.
UF reliever Jeff Barfield (1-0, 0.00) entered the game in the
eighth inning with runners on the comers and two outs. After
pitching around the Cardinals' best hitter, Chris Dominguez, to
load the bases, Barfield struck out Kyle Cheesebrough to pre-
serve the tie.
The efforts of the three new Gators completed the sweep of
the Cardinals, but throughout the weekend they got contribu-
tions from most of the team: Every Gator with at least five at-
bats recorded a hit.

ed 600 athletes at 53 schools and

that low yield was enough to con-
vince legislators that steroid use
isn't a problem in Florida high
schools at least not a problem
worth fixing.
I couldn't disagree more. If any-
thing, the program should have
been expanded.
Just because the small-scale test


only turned up one result doesn't good, and I think it should keep


mean there isn't a problem with
performance-enhancing drugs in
high schools. And the simple fact
that a test existed was a deterrent
for some athletes.
Take O'Brian Abner, a student
at Orange Park High and one of the
football players tested. Abner told
The Associated Press last week,
"(The test) probably stopped some
kids from taking (steroids) because
they felt like they might get caught
sooner or later. I think it was really


going every year."
No doubt, in a tough economic
time, money earmarked for high
schools is more likely to flow to
education than steroid testing, but
what's really more important: new
physics books or making sure stu-
dents don't damage their health?
I vote with the latter.
And they couldn't cough up
$100,000? I know it takes a lot of
trimming to reduce a budget, but
this is a necessary program.


Only three states are left testing
for steroids Illinois, Texas and
New Jersey and with its plethora
of talented athletes, Florida should
be on that list. Universities even
have an incentive to get involved.
A large number of these athletes
will end up playing in college, so
the state's major college athletic
departments should chip in and
fund testing to help keep their fu-
ture players clean.
And even if the state can't find
the money and my athletic depart-


ments suggestion doesn't make
sense, I can think of another way
to secure the funding.
New York Yankees third base-
man Alex Rodriguez recently ad-
mitted to using steroids, and I'm
betting it would do a lot for the for-
mer Miami Westminster Christian
High star's image if he broke off a
chunk of his $275 million contract
to fund a steroid-testing program.
I'd at least like to hear A-Rod's
excuses if he turns down that of-
fer.

UF SPORTS ROUNDUP

Gators best last week's season high in win over Tide


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer

UF coach Rhonda Faehn said last
week that the Alabama meet might
provide the best gymnastics the
O'Connell Center saw all year.
The Gators kept their end of the
deal.
Setting a season-high score for
the second straight week, No. 6 UF
(5-2, 3-2 Southeastern Conference)
pushed its home record to 4-0 by
beating No. 8 Alabama 196.875 to
195.625.
"It means a lot, not only to win
against a top SEC school, but we fi-
nally put good routines together on
the competition day," junior Maran-
da Smith said.
But the Gators weren't mistake-
proof. Senior Corey Hartung scored
a surprisingly low 9.35 on vault.
"I was kind of shocked," Har-
tung said.
Faehn said it was the result of
coaches working with Hartung, try-
ing to get her into the horse faster.
As a result, she was too aggressive,


and her hand slipped.
Smith, who was the anchor leg on
vault, didn't let Hartung's score faze
her. She turned in the second 9.9 of
the lineup after Melanie Sinclair also
scored a 9.9 in the third spot.
"We're still not where we should
be at the end of the season. We're
still getting there," Faehn said. "But
what's nice to see is that they're not
reacting negatively to small mis-
takes. They're not letting it affect the
next performer."
Alabama (3-4, 2-4 SEC) helped
UF forget about its mistakes when
the Tide's Ashley Priess scored a
9.35 on uneven bars.
Moving to bars, UF had anoth-
er slight landing problem. Alicia
Goodwin, who had a solid routine,
took a step on her landing, resulting
in a 9.625.
UF headed to beam with the lead
and kept it. Whereas beam has been
a question mark in past meets, the
event went without issue Friday.
"We're sick of falling on beam, so
we went out there and tried to prove
it and have a good home meet on


beam," Hartung said.
Sinclair added that having a set
lineup went a long way toward get-
ting the gymnasts comfortable and
focused.
From beam, the Gators moved
to floor exercise. Alabama, the No. 1
beam team in the country before the
meet, had beam as its last event.
UF registered consistently good
scores on floor, and Alabama im-
ploded on beam, turning in its low-
est score of the season in the event
for a difference of a whole point on
the last event.
SOFTBALL TAKES FOUR OF FIVE
GAMES IN TOURNAMENT: For the
UF softball team, the difference
between a win and a loss might be
the difference between facing great
pitching and the best pitching.
The No. 2 Gators (12-2) won four
of their five games at the Cathedral
City Classic in Palm Springs, Calif.,
but they fell 1-0 in nine innings to
No. 7 Washington on Friday night.
The Huskies (12-0) were led by
their ace, junior Danielle Lawrie,
who allowed only two hits while


striking out 12 batters.
Lawrie, who pitched for the Ca-
nadian national team at the Olym-
pics in Beijing, is the second pitcher
to shut out the Gators this season,
with the first being Baylor freshman
Whitney Canion. Canion handed
UF its only other loss of the season, a
1-0 defeat on Feb.
8. In both losses,
the Gators were
simply unable to
get anything go-
ing at the plate.
L a w r i e
matched up in the
circle with UF's
Stacey Nelson (5-
2), who only allowed 1 run on five
hits in nine innings but suffered her
second loss of the season.
"It still stings a little bit. It was
a tough loss," Nelson said. "They
were a great team, and you can't
take anything away from them, but
I wish the game could have gone 15
or 16 innings. I was ready to throw.
It's just that 1 run got in, which was
kind of a bummer."


Only center fielder Kim Waleszo-
nia was able to get a hit against Law-
rie, as the senior reached twice on
bunts.
"(Lawrie) kept us on our toes,"
second baseman Aja Paculba said.
"We were seeing the ball, but we
just couldn't get that one hit."
The Gators were much more suc-
cessful at the plate throughout the
rest of the tournament, winning their
other four games. UF defeated three
ranked teams in the tournament, in-
cluding No. 3 Arizona State (13-4),
which UF beat 8-2 on Thursday.
The defending national cham-
pion Sun Devils struck first, quickly
putting a run on the board in the
first inning, but the Gators struck
back with an 8-run fifth inning that
put the game away.
Led by sophomore Stephanie
Brombacher (7-0), UF also topped
No. 14 Fresno State (6-3) with an 8-0
win on Thursday, beat No. 17 Ne-
vada (7-7) 5-0 on Friday and capped
off the tournament with a 5-1 victory
against UNLV (6-6) on Saturday.
