Residents forced from housing

SEMINARY LANE COMPLEX
WILL CLOSE MAY 27.

By EMILY FUGGETTA
Alligator Writer
efuggetta@alligator.org

Children ride bicycles on the
cracked pavement of the parking
lot at Seminary Lane Apartments,
and the lawns are hardly more
than leaf-strewn patches of dirt,
but Calvin Bryant said he remem-
bers a time when it seemed luxuri-
ous.
"When I first moved in, I loved
it," he said. "I had never lived
where there were two bathrooms.
I had my own grass."
Bryant, 64, who
SDecial has lived at the sub-
Report sidized housing com-
plex for exactly half his
life, used his grass to plant a tree,
which still stands.
But in less than two months,
the tree, along with the rest of the
complex, will be torn down, and
Bryant worries that he won't be
able to find another place he can
afford.
"You gotta be dirt low poor to
live here," he said. "People are
scared. We need a place to stay."
Karen Godley, vice president
of the board that oversees more
than 50 duplexes at Seminary
Lane, 1019 N.W. Fifth Ave., said
the apartments have been losing
money for five years.
"It's no longer feasible to con-
tinue to rent them," she said.
Godley said the residents will
receive their vouchers in April,.
which will give them about a
month to find new housing before
the May 27 move-out date. Most
low-income complexes won't re-
serve an apartment until potential
tenants present a Section 8 voucher
from the Department of Housing
and Urban Development. Usually
vouchers are distributed only two
weeks in advance, she said.
Godley, who also cited the con- Ana Goni-Lessan/ Alligator
dition of the buildings as a reason Children play outside the Seminary Lane subsidized housing units on Thursday afternoon.

Pill thief


on loose


after local


mugging
A robber is still on the loose af-
ter he stole prescription medication
from a 50-year-old man earlier this
week.
The man was robbed at a park-
ing garage across from Shands at
UF on Monday, according to the
University Police Department.
The suspect was described as a
15- to 20-year-old black man with
long, black dreadlocks.
The alleged robbery took place
around 3:30 p.m. between the first
and second levels of Parking Ga-
rage 10 as the victim
Local was leaving Shands,
News according to UPD.
The suspect pushed
the victim, who is not
affiliated with UF, and grabbed a
bag containing his medications,
said UPD Lt. Robert Wagner.
"I think it was a crime of oppor-
tunity," Wagner said, adding the
victim was not injured, and there
was no mention of any weapon.
He said crimes like this can often
be prevented.
"I would maybe consider, you
know, walking around with a bag
that's obviously got prescription
medication in it as similar to walk-
ing around counting cash," he said.
The suspect is believed to be
about 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8
inches and 140 to 155 pounds. He
was said to be wearing a "black,
flat-billed cap, similar to a fedora, a
black shirt and black shorts, accord-
ing to a UPD press release.
Wagner asked anyone with in-
formation about the crime to con-
tact UPD.

Astronauts successfully install solar wings
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) Spacewalking astronauts in-
stalled the last set of solar wings at the international space station
Thursday, accomplishing the top job of shuttle Discovery's mission.
Steven Swanson and Richard Arnold II struggled with some cable
connections, but managed to hook everything up.
"It wasn't quite as smooth as we had hoped, but those guys did a
great job," astronaut Joseph Acaba told Mission Control.
Mission Control radioed its praise: "We're delighted to accept de-
livery and installation."
The next milestone will be Friday, when the folded-up solar

NATIONAL
Congress votes to tax AIG
Denouncing a "squandering
of the people's money," lawmak-
ers voted decisively Thursday to
impose a 90 percent tax on mil-
lions of dollars in employee bo-
nuses paid by troubled insurance
giant AIG and other bailed-out
companies.
The House vote was 328-
93. Similar legislation has been
introduced in the Senate and
President Barack Obama quickly
signaled general support for the
concept.
"I look forward to receiving
a final product that will serve
as a strong signal to the execu-
tives who run these firms that
such compensation will not be
tolerated," the president said in a
statement.House Speaker Nancy
Pelosi, D-Calif, told colleagues,
"We want our money back
now for the taxpayer. It isn't that
complicated," she said.

AROUND GAINESVILLE

Locals turn to hydroponics to keep grocery bills low


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

More Gainesville residents are
giving their green thumb a shot
these days, in line with a national
trend aimed at lowering the grocery
bill.
A survey released by the Nation-
al Gardening Association found that
as the economic recession continues
to grow, the number of household
gardens is spreading, too.


The number of Americans culti-
vating home-grown veggies rose by
7 million, up 19 percent from 2008,
according to the survey.
Sydney Park Brown, a UF ex-
tension specialist for the Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences,
said alternative gardening is a good
choice for college students who may
not have a backyard.
Hydroponic gardening, which
does not require soil, is one of those
options.


"People are trying to
feed their families with-
out spending so much at
grocery stores."
Shannon Ivins
manager of Simply Hydroponics

Shannon Ivins, manager of Sim-
ply Hydroponics, said she's seen a
major increase in the number of cus-
tomers in her store since the start of


the year.
"People are trying to feed their
families without spending so much
at grocery stores," she said.
Ivins said although hydroponic
gardens are a bit pricier, they pro-
duce higher yields.
"You can get a good garden go-
ing for about $50," she said, adding
students receive a 10 percent dis-
count.
She also said nutrients can be
sold for as low as $7 a pound. When


diluted, this makes about 100 gal-
lons of plant food.
However, Park Brown said hy-
droponic gardens can be tricky to
maintain, since the water's pH levels
and nutrient levels must be checked
regularly.
"Students shouldn't only con-
sider hydroponics as the only alter-
native gardening solution," she said.
"There are several above-ground
options like growing plants in con-
tainers."


GPD announces decrease in crime between 2007, 2008


* NUMBER OF LARCENIES ROSE.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
kemmets@alligator.org

Despite the faltering economy, recent
Gainesivlle crime statistics paint a surprisng
picture.


The number of homicides, robberies, rapes,
aggravated assaults, burglaries and auto thefts
in Gainesville decreased between 2007 and
2008, with larceny theft of personal prop-
erty being the only crime that increased, ac-
cording to a GPD report.
Crimes are divided into two types: violent
crime and property crimes.
Violent crime is down from 1,117 in 2007


to 1,044 in 2008, said GPD spokesman Keith
Kameg.
Fighting violent crime is the
Local highest priority, he said, because
News people are being harmed.
"Our ultimate goal is no vio-
lent crimes at all," Kameg said.
"But the reality is we live in a city where crime
is prevalent. It is how we react to these crimes


is what we are focusing on."
Burglary and auto theft, both property
crimes, are also down. Kameg attributes the
drop in crime to new police strategies.
When Police Chief Norman Botsford saw
the numbers from 2005, he started the Violent
Crime Task Force, which assigned more of-
ficers to work "the worst hours in the worst
areas," Kameg said.

Act benefits volunteers


ENEW ACT SHOULD CREATE
175,000 NEW SERVICE JOBS.

By KATHERINE BEIN
Alligator Contributing Writer

The federal House of Representa-
tives voted 321-105 to expand fund-
ing for volunteer programs Wednes-
day.
As part of President Obama's
goal to alleviate America's economic
crisis through service, the GIVE Act
should create 175,000 new service
jobs, bringing the national number
of volunteers to 250,000. The act will
create four new service corps: a Clean
Energy Corps, an Education Corps, a
Healthy Futures Corps and a Veter-
ans Service Corps.
And there is further good news for
U.S. college students, who are serving
in record numbers.
Students who volunteer will be
eligible for the maximum authorized
Pell Grants, which should help them
keep up with rising tuition.
Amy Panikowski, campus re-
cruiter for the Peace Corps at UF, said
she's seen an "explosion of interest"
from students in recent years.
To Panikowski, it seems the "Face-
book generation" is ready to mobilize
and bring about positive change at
home and around the world.


"They're tired of reading about it,"
she said. "They want to see it."
Lily Darnell, a junior psychology
major at UF, said she volunteers at the
Sidney Lanier Center in Gainesville,
helping teach children with learning
disabilities such as blindness and ce-
rebral palsy. Darnell said working
with those children helps put her life
into perspective and makes her feel
good.
"If I can provide three hours of my
time and have any impact on their
life, it means a lot to
National me," she said.
News Darnell thinks it's
the same for the thou-
sands of other student volunteers.
"I feel like a lot of times, what's
placed on us makes us feel helpless,"
she said. "Any way we can provide
to another group, if you help a little
part, it makes a difference."
Tracey Reeves, director of the UF
Center for Leadership and Service,
said legislation like the GIVE Act is
more important than ever.
The center organizes trips, such
as Florida Alternative Breaks, which
allows students to volunteer in other
states or countries during spring and
winter breaks.
"I think with the economy, it's es-
pecially important for folks to give
back and give a helping hand," she
said.


STUDENT LIFE

Skilled immigrants leave US


By ALEX CHACHKEVITCH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Skilled immigrants are leaving the U.S. be-
cause of better career opportunities at home,
according to a survey.
Using LinkedIn, an online network of
more than 30 million professionals around
the world, professors from Duke University,
University of California at Berkeley and Har-
vard University published a survey of 1,203
Indian and Chinese immigrants who had
worked or received higher education in the
U.S. and then returned to their home coun-
tries to work.
Vivek Wadhwa, team leader of the re-
search, said the trend is accelerating greatly
because they are starting to see more job
openings in their home countries.
After Sept. 11, many changes occurred in
U.S. immigration policy that made it more
difficult for foreigners, especially those from
Middle Eastern and Asian countries, to come
to the U.S. for graduate school or work, said
Alfonso Flores-Lagunes, assistant professor
of economics at UF.
There are about 1 million people in line for
H-1B working visas, the availability of which
is limited to 120,000 per year, Wadhwa said.
Puneet Dwivedi, a UF Ph.D. candidate in
forestry policy and economics from India,
said it's not a problem to get a visa if you get a
job at a university after you graduate because
there is no limit on visas in that area.
"But getting a visa in a company is a lot-
tery," Dwivedi said.
The waiting time for the visa is many
months, and the permanent residence line is
worse.
As an immigrant from Mexico, Flores-La-
gunes waited 10 years to get his green card.
Because of this wait, some chose to go to Eu-


rope for higher education rather than to U.S.,
he said.
"Down the road, this might result in less
skilled population, which means less eco-
nomic growth," Flores-Lagunes said.
The recent recession in the U.S. also might
have been a catalyst. Though crisis is going
on everywhere around the world, countries
such as India and China are still in the middle
of rapid economic growth, Flores-Lagunes
said.

"But getting a visa in a company is
a lottery."
Puneet Dwivedi
UF Ph.D. candidate in forestry policy and
economics

Wadhwa, also a senior research associate
at Harvard Law School and a professor at
Duke's engineering school, said people start
blaming the immigrants for their financial
problems when economic crisis occurs.
"Americans lose jobs and wonder why
that foreigner should have a job but not me,"
he said.
Wadhwa received a backlash of hundreds
of derogatory e-mails in response to his re-
search paper, attacking him for supporting
immigrants.
One reader stated "I, for one, am glad that
these 'skilled' workers are returning to their
respective homes. Perhaps my husband will
once again be able to work."
According to the research, immigrants
help fuel the U.S. economy, contributing dis-
proportionately to the high-tech sector. They
co-founded firms such as Google, Intel Corp.,
eBay and Yahoo. Between 1990 and 2007, 45
percent of the growth of the work force con-
sisted of immigrants.

Editorial
After struggling to reacclimate ourselves to the oh-so bru-
tal grind of work and school, the Department of Darts
& Laurels can't help but smile now that the weekend is
finally upon us.
While your activities this evening may pale in comparison
to the absurdities of last week, we'll go out on a limb and safely
assume that your body could use a break.
Unless of course, you happen to enjoy that whole lifestyle of
self-destruction more power to you.
As we dread tackling the mountain of laundry bearing
badges of Spring Break honor, we proudly present you this
week's don't-even-bother-calculating-how-much-dough-you-
dropped-in-Mexico edition of...



Darts&Laurels
While bowling barely qualifies as a sport given the fact that
a player's performance actually increases after consuming al-
cohol (trust us), there is evidently a degree of danger involved.
For punching a fellow bowler in the mouth with a 16-pound
bowling ball and knocking a tooth out, the Department of Darts
& Laurels chucks a dude-it's-just-bowling DART at lane lunatic
Ryan Scott David. And to think, they were arguing over who
held the right to bowl first.
Do you remember where you were when you heard Tim
Tebow echo the words that will now forever live on in Gator
history? The Department of Darts & Laurels presents a lot-of-
good-has-come-out-of-this LAUREL to UF for commemorating
Tim Tebow's "The Promise" speech with a plaque featuring ev-
ery word he uttered in the wake of last season's upset loss to Ole
Miss. We bet even the biggest Florida State fan won't be able to
walk past the Bill Heavener Football Complex without stopping
to take notice.
Science fiction geeks everywhere collectively shuttered upon
hearing news that major changes are in store at their destination
for the latest in space odyssey programming. For rebranding
themselves as SyFy to expand their horizons to include more
mainstream shows, the Department of Darts & Laurels launch-
es a why-mess-with-a-good-thing DART at the artist formerly
known as the Sci Fi Channel. What's next, adding syndicated
episodes of "Sex and the City" to the lineup?
Somewhere a Trekkie sheds a tear.
Channeling his inner Andy Dufresne, one Missouri inmate
concocted a scheme seemingly worthy of a "Shawshank Re-
demption" redux. The Department of Darts & Laurels presents
a get-busy-living-or-get-busy-dying LAUREL to David Rock-
lage for escaping from a hospital after tricking officers into tak-
ing him to get medical assistance for his persistent chest pain.
While we certainly don't condone criminal activity, there is
something undeniably laudable about a man going to extreme
lengths to regain his freedom.
Word out of Rhode Island informs us that 30-year-old
women are susceptible to behavior that even a diaper-donning
preschooler would deem immature. For biting and punching
her son's principal after learning he had been suspended from
school, the Department of Darts & Laurels tosses a why-didn't-
you-just-get-a-five-dollar-footlong-if-you-were-that-hungry
DART at Aleyda Uceta. Maybe it's just us, but when we think
of our parents, we tend to think of people who tend to set far
better examples than ourselves.
So much for the mom having any leverage to ground her
son.
With the men's NCAA basketball tournament in full swing,
office workers no longer have to worry about getting caught
watching all of the madness thanks to the friendly folks at CBS
Sportsline.com. The Department of Darts and Laurels gracious-
ly extends a thanks-to-you-we-can-safely-watch-the-games-in-
class LAUREL to the "Boss Button," for allowing a seamless
escape plan to avoid having to explain why you were watching
Maryland crush California when TPS reports were due by 5.
With one simple click of the mouse, you can safely change your
screen from Dino Gregory dunking on some overmatched Cal

Column

America must shed two-party politics


Have a strong stomach. Only a handful of things con-
sistently turn my stomach contents into a downtown
sidewalk display: catching a ride post- or mid-drinka-
thon, all songs Nickelback and when, like, people, like, say
"like" all the time. Other than those three things, I rarely
get to taste my stomach acid.
Lately, though, I've recognized a trend starting to give
me the cold sweats that have always foreshadowed the
aforementioned unhappy time. Words like "taxes," "bail-
out," "aid" and "bonuses" have flooded print headlines
and TV top stories. These words too frequently lead to ar-
guments about the overall effectiveness or lack thereof
- of President Barack Obama's policies. At this stage, I'm
not quite ready to let the chunks fly because honest debate
can present previously unconsidered opinions. My beef
arises when the argument devolves from honest debate to
senseless brand loyalty.
"George W. Bush is to blame for the failing economy,"
whines the aging, liberal, hippie douche. "He made us
fight a war that sent us all to the poor house."
"Nuh uh," retorts the pissed off, redneck conservative.
"You damn Democrats just keep spending and spend-
ing. Obama's stupid bailout is only going to make things
worse."
"I'm still not really sure," mumbles the spineless Inde-
pendent.
From this point on, each combatant returns to the com-
fort of his respective political corner. The argument goes
on for a while as each fighter simply parrots the words of
those standing behind him.
Solid work, fellas. You've talked each other out of
compromising in any way and effectively killed off any
hope for a sensible agreement. At least you can go home
and brag to your ladies about how you held your ground


t against that sissy tree-hugger or the
greedy Nazi.
How far we've come in the past
233 years.
Political parties were not the in-
tention of the founding fathers, and
Adam Wynn the above hypothetical situation
letters@alligator.org shows why. Competing factions
help express a few views, but the
larger they get, the more divisive they become. Never-
theless, political parties are necessary evils. They garner
support for candidates for offices at all levels of govern-
ment, and they help educate otherwise-uninformed vot-
ers. Unfortunately, there's always an agenda. Nothing is
unbiased. Ever.
What we all need to realize is the closer we cling to
our preferred political party, the farther we get from our-
selves. Rather than compromising with our opposition to
achieve a reasonable outcome, we slight our personal ide-
als by bending to meet the party norm.
Guys like Rush Limbaugh and Jon Stewart contribute
to the political polarization of society. Limbaugh says the
word "liberal" like anyone else would say "pedophile".
These guys peddle exaggeration and entertainment as if
it were governmental action, and it works because we're
largely an instant-gratification society that prefers to be
told what to do.
We're privileged enough to be able to support what-
ever whack job we deem the man for the job, and party
should not be as important as policy. Both parties are con-
niving organizations that can do good or evil, so define
yourself as a voter, not as a Republican or Democrat.

Guest Column

Pro-Amendment 1 group doesn't deserve benefit of doubt


'll be up-front: I think Charter Amend-
ment 1 is abhorrent, and I hope it's de-
feated. But I don't think that anybody
who feels differently is automatically a
bigot.
This issue is one that lends itself to an
honest, meaningful conversation about dis-
crimination and the role of city government,
but that's a conversation Citizens for Good
Public Policy, the local group pushing for
the amendment's passage, has made clear it
isn't interested in having.
Take their two TV commercials, avail-
able at youtube.com/humandecencynow.
The first ad shows a small girl blonde-
haired, cheerful and innocent walking
into a restroom at the playground. The
screen goes black and white, then a sketchy-
looking, unshaven man walks towards the
bathroom, looks around to see if anybody is
watching, and follows the girl in. Ominous
text appears: "On January 28, 2008, your
City Commission made this legal... Is that
what you want in Gainesville?"
The implication is that the man intends
to violate the girl; saying that the gender
identity ordinance "made this legal" as if
a clause that made molestation lawful was


written into the ordinance directly links
transgender people with child molesters.
CGPP's insistence that the ad refers to
those who would exploit the law, and not
transgender people, rings hollow. There's
nothing in the ad that suggests that level of
nuance, and 30-second TV commercials are
hardly the medium by which nuanced po-
litical messages are communicated.
Rather, political TV spots are used for
creating quick, visceral reactions and sim-
plistic associations, and this one was no
exception. Any suggestion by CGPP to the
contrary is just posturing and an exercise
in half-hearted plausible deniability. The
damage is already done as soon as the as-
sociation is formed, and no amount of, "We
didn't mean transgender people, honest!"
can reverse that.
The second ad features footage from a
Gainesville Home Depot security camera
on Feb. 18 of a man who entered the wom-
en's bathroom and tried to take cell phone
pictures of a woman in a stall. A voiceover
says, "What the city commission told us
never would happen just did, right here in
Gainesville."
Except that, once again, it's a sleight-of-


hand trick. There's
Joe Dellosa no reference to
Speaking Out gender identity in
the GPD incident
report, and the
suspect didn't at-
tempt to cite the ordinance in his defense.
According to a January 2009 Associated
Press article, GPD hasn't reported a single
problem in public restrooms resulting from
the ordinance.
On its Web site, CGPP lists about a doz-
en incidents from across the country about
men acting lewdly or violently after enter-
ing women's bathrooms as evidence that
"restroom crimes are common occurrenc-
es." They do mention that none of the inci-
dents have anything to do with transgender
people.
But none of them have anything to do
with transgender protections, either. In fact,
the list winds up inadvertently making an
argument against CGPP's position these
crimes take place irrespective of whatever
anti-discrimination laws are or are not on
the books.
I know advertising is a dirty business,
and political advertising doubly so. But


there's something especially repugnant
about advertising that exploits people's
fears and magnifies their worries for their
children and grandchildren. It foments an
atmosphere of paranoia that makes the stig-
matization of minorities a lot easier.
I'm against Charter Amendment 1 be-
cause I believe anti-discrimination protec-
tion for Gainesville's LGBT community is
important, both as a practical matter and as
a show of compassion and decency.
The rejection of the amendment will pro-
tect Gainesville's reputation in the eyes of
prospective students, residents and busi-
nesses
After all, it's one thing simply never to
have had these protections, but it sends an
entirely different and horrible, and inac-
curate message about what kind of city
Gainesville is to revoke them after the fact.
But a "no" vote on Charter Amendment 1
would also be a repudiation of CGPP's ma-
nipulative, fear-mongering campaign and a
statement that we expect a higher level of
discourse.
Because we're better than this. And more
importantly, Gainesville deserves better.
Joe Dellosa is an advertising junior.

UF RESEARCH

Stem cell ban reversal may bring research funding


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

Although President Barack
Obama recently lifted restrictions
that previously denied federal
funding to medical research insti-
tutions studying embryonic stem
cells, UF won't be seeing an im-
mediate impact, experts say.
Dennis Steindler, executive
director of the university's McK-
night Brain Institute, said adult
stem cells, which can come from
brain, bone marrow and organ tis-
sue, will continue to be the main
area of focus for research pur-
poses.
This is because most of the
conditions researchers at the
McKnight Brain Institute are try-
ing to cure are more prominent in
adults, he said.
"We're looking for cures for all
the main diseases and injuries,"
he said. "Pretty much everything
is on our radar."
Steindler also pointed out that
stem cell research was still an op-
tion in the past.
"The previous executive order
did not stop stem cell research,


it just said embryonic lines start-
ing after 2001 must use private
funds," he said.
Even though the McKnight
Brain Institute will not experience
an immediate impact from the
lifted ban, it will still see benefits
from Obama's legislation.
"The president's stimulus
package has a variety of stem cell
initiatives as well," he said, add-
ing he plans to apply for several
types of grants.
One particular grant Steindler
said he is interested in will pro-
vide funding for research involv-
ing induced pluripotent stem
cells.
"This is an alternative to em-
bryonic stem cells," Steindler said.
"We can reprogram adult cells to
become embryonic-like."
He said adult stem cell and
induced pluripotent stem cell re-
search will be the main focuses of
the McKnight Brain Institute for
now, but he said he can not pre-
dict how Obama's decision will
affect UF's research in years to
come.

GAINESVILLE COMMISSION

Commissioners discuss proposed ordinance, funding


By HUNTER SIZEMORE and JACQUELYN WEINER
Alligator Writers

Gainesville has been promised about $7.8 million in eco-
nomic stimulus funding, according to Thursday's city com-
mission agenda.
The announcement comes just over a month after Presi-
dent Barack Obama signed The American Recovery and Rein-
vestment Act of 2009 into law. Money was awarded through
a population-based formula.
"The dollars are appreciated, but the vast majority of them
are capital investment," said Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan, refer-
ring to controls set on the funds.
Much of the money can only be spent on buildings and
items and may not be used to fund programs, said Jeanna
Mastrodicasa, a city commissioner.
About $3 million will go to buying new buses for the
Regional Transit System, as awarded through Transit Capi-
tal Assistance, according to a presentation given during the
meeting. Additionally, there are 22 state and federal grants
that Gainesville will compete for.
"I think we'll be really competitive on these things," Mas-
trodicasa said.
Commissioners also discussed a possible new ordinance
that would create stricter safety rules for bicycle taxis that
patrol the streets near campus on game days.
The ordinance, which would regulate carriages pulled by
bikers or pedestrians, passed first reading unanimously. To
become law, the ordinance must pass a second reading on
April 2. Currently, there are no safety rules governing bike
taxis in Gainesville, according to a Public Safety Committee
report.
"They've been running around wild for quite a while,"
Gainesville Police Department Corporal Fernando Zaragoza
said in an interview.
Under the ordinance, bike taxi providers would be required
to obtain insurance, permits and limit passenger loads.
In addition, rates must be displayed and bikes have to be
equipped with a horn, lights and other safety features.
Street restrictions for bike taxis were discussed at

for the closing, said she hopes to see the cur-
rent tenants return once the property is re-
developed, but she can't guarantee the pos-
sibility.
"If they'd like to come back, we hope they
qualify. We really do," she said. "But you
know what? They're moving on to better
housing than what they have now."
But for Takarra Moore, the transition will
be no luxury.
Moore, 24, lives with her two sons, 4-year-
old Titus and 1-year-old Philemon, and fears
that the cost of moving will be too steep.
"If you get the voucher and you have no
money, you're still homeless," she said. "You
still need to pay moving expenses, transfer-
ring utilities, security deposits."
Moore worries that she won't even qual-
ify for the voucher because criminal records
affect eligibility.
According to Section 8 counselor Gyra
Bossle, vouchers are not given to anyone
who has been arrested even without con-
viction in the past five years.
This may be a problem for Moore, who
has been arrested, though never charged.
"I got a letter that said 'congratulations,'"
she said. "But I don't think I'm through
yet."
Moore said the arrests also haunt her in
job applications. She is a certified nursing
assistant, but she said her criminal record
comes up immediately in most interviews.
"I'm as honest as possible," she said. "But
they see the arrest and never look any fur-
ther."
Moore said she took a class through the
Florida Department of Children and Fami-
lies that made her eligible for a $108 month-
ly stipend. But because of her pregnancy, it
hurt to sit all day, and her car is too old to
rely on.
"I know it's excuses," she said. "But it was
just too much for me. That's life, I guess."
Moore plans to join the army reserves af-

ter she has her third child.
"I need some sort of stability," she said. "I
need a way to support my sons."
Moore, who has lived at Seminary Lane
for more than a year, said she thinks the clos-
ing of the complex has to do with UF.
"They want to make the area nice for the
students. We know. We understand," she
said. "But don't sugarcoat it for us. We just
want a place to live."
"I've been around here all my life.
We've built a community, and it's
just not right to take it away."
Calvin Bryant
Seminary Lane Apartments resident

Moore, who has gone to town meetings to
plead her case to city officials, said she thinks
that if the tenants of Seminary Lane worked
together, they could influence the city to step
in and help them.
"If we really grouped up a force to be
reckoned with we could convince them to
do something. I really believe that," she said.
"But if we act like we don't care, then they
don't care."
Gainesville City Commissioner Scherwin
Henry said the commission is looking for a
way to use city grants to give money to those
who don't qualify for the vouchers, though
he agrees that the complex needs to be torn
down.
"It's in great disrepair," he said, and he
fears it would become a health and safety
problem if the apartments were left in place.
"I'd hate to see it get to that point," he
said.
Bryant said water leaks through the roofs,
and the sidewalks are cracked and jagged.
"One day I had my grandbaby in my
arms, and I tripped and fell," he said.
But despite the deterioration, Bryant calls
Seminary Lane home.
"I've been around here all my life," he
said. "We've built a community, and it's just
not right to take it away."

Vets save whale

* THE WHALE WAS TRAPPED IN FISHING LINE.

Two UF veterinarians took part in a rescue mission on March 6
in order to free an endangered species of whale from about 1,000
feet of fishing line.
Dr. Michael Walsh, an aquatic veterinarian, and Dr. James Bai-
ley, a veterinary anesthesiologist, helped make up the team of ex-
perts whose mission was to free right whale No. EG3311, which
was first spotted in January.
Walsh said the whale had its left eye and shoulder entangled
in fishing net as well as its mouth, which prevented it from eat-
ing. The assembled team to help free the whale was made up of
veterinarians and employees from national agencies.
"It was a huge team and coordinated a bunch of very capable
organizations that worked together and came up with a plan,"
Bailey said.
Because of the right whales' evasive nature, Bailey said seda-
tion had to be used to free it from the netting, with caution so as
to not drown the whale.
"We had to create a cocktail to make the whale cooperative but
still do what a whale needs to do, which is surface and breath,"
he said.
The team made many attempts to sedate the whale before a
strong enough mixture of sedatives was created and executed.
Walsh said trips were made in January and February before
the final effort on March 6, and said the team was worried time
was running out.
"Everyone knew that (final) trip needed to be successful," he
said. "If we weren't, it wouldn't have been able to survive much
longer."
Walsh said the team traveled on four boats to the area where
the whale was swimming in order to sedate it. After the dart,
about 2 feet long, was fired successfully, the team was able to cut
about 400 feet of line off in about 45 minutes.

LOCAL

UF first lady vows to


save healthy strays


By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF first lady Chris Machen
is working like a dog to save
healthy animals from euthanasia in
Gainesville.
Tonight, Machen is hosting an
event at the President's Mansion to
thank donors who have given $150
or more to No More Homeless Pets,
a local organization working to stop
euthanization of healthy animals.
Machen became a board member
of the year-old organization about
six months ago.
Machen's interest in helping
local animals was put into action
about a year and a half ago when
she helped to start the St. Francis
House Pet Care Clinic, which offers
free veterinary care to homeless and
low-income people.
The No More Homeless Pets or-
ganization is trying to build a facility
that would control the over popula-
tion of dogs and cats by providing a
high quality, high volume, low cost
spay and neuter center for Alachua
and surrounding counties. The goal
for the facility is to service about
6,000 animals annually. Donations
will fund the daily operations.
"The only way to stop it is to
have less litters. It's a pretty easy
concept," Machen said.
Last year, philanthropist Gladys
Cofrin gave the group a $250,000 do-
nation, which the Alachua County
Commission then matched, Machen
said.
With donations from Cofrin and
the city, the organization has enough


money to build the facility but still
needs more to purchase equipment
and hire employees, said Julie Levy,
organization president and UF Col-
lege of Veterinary Medicine profes-
sor.
The group will soon operate tem-
porarily out of a donated semi trailer
equipped to spay and neuter up to
120 cats and small dogs per day,
Levy said.
The trailer, called the Big Fix Rig,
was originally used in New Orleans
after Hurricane Katrina to help con-
trol the stray ani-
mal population.
Humane Alliance,
a North Carolina
spay and neuter
clinic, donated
the rig to No
More Homeless
Machen Pets because of
the organization's
favorable reputation, Levy said.
Some of the money donated by
those attending tonight's function
will go toward the $12,000 cost to
bring the rig to Gainesville and ad-
just it to service big dogs as well.
In 2008, of the 7,598 animals
brought to Alachua County Animal
Services, 3,011 were euthanized,
said director David Flagler.
However, compared to other
counties, Gainesville has a relatively
low euthanization rate because of
the efforts of organizations like No
More Homeless Pets, Flagler said.
"I really count myself blessed
in this community because this is a
place that people really do care," he
said.


Puppet Procession
Led by drummers, a large puppet polar bear, operated by two people hidden inside, walks down
Southwest 4th Avenue on Thursday night. The puppet will be part of the Procession for the Future
presented by the Backbone Campaign on Saturday.

Local pawnbroker vies for seat, vows to protect kids


* HE CAMPAIGNS TO PASS
CHARTER AMENDMENT 1.

By HUNTER SIZEMORE
Alligator Writer
jhsizemore@alligator.org

Holding his hands in a pan-
tomime of the scales of justice,
Richard Selwach weighs the
rights of a "45-year-old pervert"
against those of a "10-year-old
girl" while standing in his pawn-


shop on Thursday.
"I'm going to side with the
little girl," he said of his sup-
port for the controversial Charter
Amendment 1.
Selwach is one of three chal-
lengers to the At Large Gainesville
city commission seat of Jeanna
Mastrodicasa.
He describes himself as a con-
servative libertarian and cam-
paigns primarily on the removal
of Mastrodicasa from the City
Commission and support for


Amendment 1.
The amendment would nul-
lify Chapter 8 of
the Gainesville
Code of Ordi-
nances, titled
"Discrimina-
tion," remov-
ing protections
Selwach for transgender,
lesbian, gay and
bisexual people.
Gainesville would then rely
on the Florida Civil Rights Act to


provide anti-discrimination pro-
tections at the state level.
Selwach feels that the ordi-
nance currently leaves women
and children open to sexual pred-
ators in public bathrooms. He is
also skeptical of transvestites, he
said.
"I don't want men with breast
implants and 10-inch dicks using
the bathroom next to little girls,"
he said, after pointing out his dis-
taste for media censorship of his
admittedly harsh viewpoints.


On student issues, Selwach
opposes recent restrictions placed
on bars, which were largely
championed by Mastrodicasa.
The ordinance places stricter
age restrictions on bars which ha-
bitually receive underage drink-
ing violations.
He feels that the ordinance
punishes well-behaved students
for the mistakes of a few, Selwach
said.
"It's gonna kill downtown,"
he said.


GAINESVILLE ELECTIONS

Candidate promotes city innovation, safety, Chater 1


By AMANDA HINES
Alligator Contributing Writer

Backed by his passion for Gainesville's
community and public safety, Robert
Krames said he is ready for change.
Krames said he will implement that
change if elected to the City Commission
At Large Seat 1 on March 24.
Krames, 26, works in graphics and Web
site design. He said his background in
technology would drive him to increase
innovation in the city.
He said the current city commission is


out of touch with what people want and
need.
Spending more than $1 million on a
new golf course was unnecessary, Krames
said.
He said understands the need for tax
breaks because of the current economy,
but the money should be spent elsewhere,
like on public safety.
He said smart spending is especially
important when the city government is in
a $1.2 million budget deficit that is project-
ed to increase to $3 million by 2010.
"The current government focuses on


the wrong priorities and has poor spend-
ing habits," he said.
Krames is in favor of
the controversial Char-
ter Amendment 1, which
would remove the city
ordinance entitled "Dis-
crimination," which pro-
tects gay, lesbian, bisexual
and transgender people
Krames from discrimination.
If passed, the amend-
ment would also prohibit the local govern-
ment from creating new protected classes,


such as veterans.
The law would then revert to the Flori-
da Civil Rights Act.
A father himself, he said the ordinance
began with good intentions, but present
wording leaves women and children vul-
nerable to pedophiles.
If elected, Krames said he will make de-
cisions after considering all of the parties'
ideas.
"[Gainesville's] a great place to raise a
family and live," he said. "I will fight to
keep it that way."

Study: Dressing room lighting matters to shoppers


By JACQUELYNE SMITH
Alligator Writer

The secret to looking good
in the clothes you buy might be
right in front of you.
A recent UF study suggests
female consumers have a pref-
erence for dressing rooms with
frontal lighting those installed
along the sides of the mirror in-
stead of overhead lights mounted
on the ceiling.
Anne Baumstarck, a UF inte-
rior design master's student who
conducted the study, said retail-
ers often overlook the importance
of how dressing rooms are lit.
The lengths apparel stores
go to lure customers, like deep
discounts and colorful interior
designs, are likely to fall short if
shoppers don't like how they look
in the mirror. It's not all about the
clothes, she said.


"What woman doesn't go into
a dressing room and engage in a
dialogue with herself about how
attractive she is? You don't want
to give her any opportunity to
feel badly about herself," Baum-
starck said.
In the study, 60 female shop-
pers between 18 and 35 years
old who tried on clothes in the
dressing rooms at the Gainesville
clothing boutique Wolfgang,
showed a clear preference for
frontal lights.
Lighting was so important that
it was mentioned in 51 percent
of comments by the women in
the study, she said. Twenty-five
of the 36 comments made about
overhead lights were negative,
while only 14 of the 34 comments
about frontal lighting were nega-
tive.
Women complained that over-
head lighting created shadows


on their faces, which made them
look unattractive.
The frontal lighting was de-
scribed as soft and flattering,
giving their skin a healthy glow
and making cellulite less visible,
Baumstarck said.
Whitney Ja-
cob, 19, said
she is much less
likely to buy
items in a store
if the dressing
room lighting is
Turner lousy.
Despite being
more expensive, she said she pre-
fers to buy clothes from small, in-
timate boutiques because of their
atmosphere.
"Big department stores freak
me out with overhead lighting,"
said Jacob, a nutrition science
major at Auburn University.
"Sometimes it's worth it to buy


from a boutique."
Matthew Turner, owner of
Wolfgang, said he agreed that
frontal lighting made fewer shad-
ows on customers, but that typi-
cally there's overhead lighting in
store fitting rooms.
Turner said he has both types
of lighting in Wolfgang's dressing
rooms, and that he often switches
between the two. He said not all
customers prefer frontal lighting,
as some customers have com-
mented that the frontal lighting
is too intense and distracted from
the clothes.
"The goal is to reduce the light
intensity because it can be over-
whelming," Turner said.
Christy Morgan, owner of
Dahlia, another Gainesville
clothing boutique, said warm,
soft light makes dressing rooms
more pleasant. The store has
small chandeliers hanging low


in front of its dressing room mir-
rors, which Morgan said she likes
because they give a soft, romantic
feel.
Because customers often spend
a lot of time trying on clothes, it's
important each room is cozy and
inviting so customers don't mind
spending time in them, she said.
"You want to feel comfortable
and not threatened when trying
to find something flattering,"
Morgan said.
Baumstarck said overhead
lighting makes rooms seem
smaller even cramped creat-
ing a need to escape. With frontal
lighting, dressing rooms appear
roomier, and shoppers said they
were willing to stay longer and
try on more clothes, she said.
"You never want a consumer
to be thinking 'I hate this light-
ing' instead of 'I like this dress,'"
Baumstarck said.


Improv group to perform in 12-hour event for charity


* THEATRE STRIKE FORCE RAISED
$3K FOR RELAY FOR LIFE THIS YEAR.

By ALEIGHA BROWN
Alligator Contributing Writer

When couches appeared on the North
Lawn of the UF's campus, people stopped
and looked.
On Thursday, Theatre Strike Force, a
student improvisation troupe, camped out
for 12 hours by the Reitz Union Colon-
nade, complete with two couches, a book-


shelf and blankets, to promote its 12 hours
of improv event today.
TSF is hosting the comedy event, which
started in 2005, from noon until midnight
to raise money for Relay for Life.
It will take place at the Orange & Brew
and in Reitz Union room 282.
TSF members asked anyone making the
trek between Weimer Hall and the Reitz
Union to write 12 on a white board on dis-
play.
Gus Laguna, a UF economics junior,
said the five seconds it takes someone to
write on the board gives him just enough


time to make his pitch.
TSF member Jessie Ervolino, a UF
sophomore, said the group has been doing
things with the 12 theme to promote to-
day's event all week, includ-
On ing a 12-minute make-out ses-
Campus sion and eating an entire pie
in 12 minutes.
Laguna said the group improvs for fun,
but behind the jokes and games, it is all for
a good cause.
The event starts at the Orange & Brew
with open improv from all members of
TSF.


When TSF moves to room 282, there
will be scheduled troupe performances
of both short and long form improv. The
finale will be held back at the Orange &
Brew.
Katie LeBlanc, a UF sophomore and
TSF member, said it is a free event, but
there will be jars for attendees to donate
money.
Last year, TSF raised nearly $5,000 for
Relay for Life and placed third in overall
fundraising.
So far, it has raised about $3,000 this
year, according to Ervolino.

BIGGER AND BUTLER


Second-year coach responsible for turnaround in team's attitude, record


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

Amanda Butler says she bleeds
orange and blue, and it's hard not
to believe her.
There's no place she'd rather be
than UF.
If being a Gator means being the
best, as the UF women's basketball
coach believes it does, why would
she want to go anywhere else?
For a coach who inherited a
team on the brink of disaster, But-
ler has turned her dream job into
an unforeseen reality.
She has made her mark on the
women's basketball program inex-
plicably fast.
When Butler stepped to the
podium after being named the
Gators' new leader on April 13,
2007, the questions came.
How long? How long will it
take to turn this team around?
Nearly two years later, the an-
swer has arrived, as Butler has held
true to the team's motto "Bigger
and Better" and led the team to
the NCAA Tournament.
"This is my expectation: I think
this is the best university in the best
conference in the country," Butler
said. "To be able to call yourself
a Gator, it means that you have
championship expectations. That's
how we're going to live. That's
how we're going to work. That's
how we're going to play.
"As far as we've come, I think
we've seen that. But I also think
we've just scratched the surface."
The rest of the teams in the
Southeastern Conference will not
like that idea.
In Butler's eyes, the well of po-
tential at UF is endless.

Toughness
Butler played for UF from 1990-
94 as the Gators' point guard, help-
ing lead the team in her senior year
to the best record in school history
at the time while also compiling an
undefeated record at home.
Anyone who saw her play knew
she was tough as nails.
Legend has it that one time she
popped her shoulder back into
place by banging it up against a
wall.
Talk about toughness.
It's the one thing seniors Sha
Brooks and Marshae Dotson could
think of when asked what quality
their coach has instilled in them.
"Toughness," Brooks said.
"She preaches about toughness
all the time. She says you have to
be tough. I believe that if you're
tough, you can do anything."
"Just be tough," Dotson added.
"Don't take no crap from anyone.
That's just her mindset. She's very
aggressive and very straightfor-
ward."
When Dotson broke her nose in
the season opener against Xavier
last year and chipped her tooth a
couple weeks later she needed
a root canal and a crown Dotson
said Butler was on her case about


missing time in practice.
Dotson not only played in each
game after her injuries, but she led
the team in scoring with 25 and 18
points in those two games.
Freshman center Azania Stew-
art, who was experiencing kidney
pains in September, said Butler
- uncertain of Stewart's illness -
tried to console Stewart by telling
her she'd be fine.
Stewart later had to have her
kidney removed a month before
the season began.
It's safe to say there are no ex-
cuses with Butler.
She never made excuses as a
player, and she has carried that
same attitude into coaching. It
seems to have worked so far.

Gator First, Coach Second
Butler, Dotson and Brooks can
all remember the first time Butler
addressed the team after being in-
troduced as the Gators' new head
coach.
"One of the first things I told
them was that I was not address-
ing them as their new head coach,
that I was addressing them as a
Gator," Butler said. "I was ad-
dressing them as someone who
had worn the uniform, and them
understanding the opportunity for
me to be here is maybe even more
personal than professional."
Butler had to sell herself to a
room full of players she hadn't re-
cruited, players who hadn't chosen
her to be their coach.
"I wanted to know two things
from them, and I wanted them to
see two things from me and from
my staff," Butler said.
"I wanted to know how hard
they were going to work and that
I could trust them, and I was going
to do my darndest to show them
how hard I would work and that
they could trust me. And that if
we could prove those two things
to each other every day, then we
had a chance to make something
special happen."
It didn't take long for the play-
ers to buy in to her message.
"This lady is all about busi-
ness," Dotson said of her first im-
pression of Butler. "She's a very
direct person, and you've just kind
of got to respect that."

The Eyebrow
But even in Butler's most seri-
ous and intense moments, there's
humor.
Picture this: A screaming coach
calls a timeout because her team
just made a terrible mistake in a
game. Butler glares into the faces
of players scared to look her way as
they make their way to the bench,
and then Fred comes out.
Yes, Fred the name players
gave Butler's hunched over, raised
eyebrow that strikes fear in their
hearts.
"Fred comes out sometimes,"
Dotson said. "(Butler) came to
practice sometime last week with
a hat on and we we're like, 'Yeah,


we like that. We can't see Fred."'
Brooks said her coach has a
commanding presence when she
enters a room.
"I tell her all the time she scares
me because when you walk in the
room, it's like the President has
just walked in," Brooks said. "It's
like you know you better step it
up, or either you're going to be in
the locker room crying or you're
going to be on the bench."
Butler has a slightly different
take on Fred.
"I tell her all the time she
scares me because when
you walk in the room, it's
like the President has just
walked in."
Sha Brooks
UF senior guard

"I don't know really the look,"
she said while laughing. "I don't
even know how to do it. It's clearly
an expression that just happens,
probably in the more intense mo-
ments. But it has become a char-
acteristic that gets their attention,
and I think that's probably a good
thing."
As high as Fred might be raised
sometimes, that height doesn't
come anywhere near the level of
Butler's expectations for her team.
Butler said if anything about
her has changed since she took the
job, it's only that her expectations
have risen.


Quick Turnaround
Assistant coach Susie Gardner
has a theory on why Butler has
been so successful at UF so quick-
ly.
There were already some play-
ers in place, Gardner says, although
she's quick to point out they were
the same players who had won just
nine games the year before Butler's
arrival.
Combine the talent with change,
a chance to spark a new fire and -
most importantly adding Butler
to the equation.
"She made them from Day 1 be-
lieve that they were a special team,
that they were special players,"
Gardner said. "We can talk about
X's and O's, but the main part of
coaching is to make your players
believe, and she did that in a very
positive manner."
Butler was hesitant to believe
she could take this team to the
NCAA Tournament early in her
time at UF. She was more con-
cerned with working hard every
day and setting a high standard for
her players.
"What we've seen, the progress
we've seen and how quickly it's
been made is a demonstration of
the work ethic of the young ladies
who've committed to an idea of
trying to be the best," Butler said.
It's almost certain they have
modeled their own work ethic af-
ter that of their head coach.
It's the mentality that enables
Butler to fly in from a recruiting
trip, head to a morning press con-


ference and be in the practice gym
in time to scout UF's next oppo-
nent on film while riding an exer-
cise bike and answering reporters'
questions all at the same time.
The players see that effort from
their coach and want to replicate
it.
The result: a top-25 ranking
this season and a ticket to the Big
Dance.
"Has it happened quicker than
I thought it would? I don't feel like
we're where we want to go yet,"
Butler said. "Have we made tre-
mendous strides? Absolutely. But
we're not at the top of the moun-
tain, and that will be probably the
greatest measure of how quickly
things happen."
For someone who wears her
passion for this program on her
sleeve and under her skin the
question may now become how
long it will take UF to win a na-
tional title.
"It has everything to do with a
mindset," Butler said.
"It has everything to do with
having championship expecta-
tions, because to me that's what
being a Gator is about. You want
to be the best. You don't want to
finish in the top half of the con-
ference. You're not trying to be a
top-four seed. You want to be No.
1. Clearly we're not quite there yet,
but hopefully taking steps in the
right direction."
With Butler at the helm, UF
might reach that pinnacle sooner
than anyone could have imagined.

UF back in NCAA Tournament after 2-year layoff


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

Only three of them know the feeling.
When No. 8-seed UF (23-7, 9-5 Southeastern
Conference) steps on the court Sunday at 2:30
p.m. in Storrs, Conn., for the first round of the
NCAA Tournament against No. 9-seed Temple
(21-9, 11-3 Atlantic 10), postseason experience
will not be on the Gators' side.
Of the 15 names on UF's current roster, se-
niors Sha Brooks, Marshae Dotson and Kim
Critton are the only players who have ever
tasted an NCAA Tournament game, and even
their experience was brief.
The lone matchup they took part in a for-
gettable 83-59 loss to New Mexico in 2006 -
seems so distant now.
"It's still kind of new to me," Brooks said.
"We made the tournament my freshman year.
That was so long ago. I'm pretty sure I'm going
to be nervous the first game."
It's clear UF will not be relying on its post-
season experience if it wants to generate a deep
run in the tournament.
The Gators will focus on what got them to
this point and how they can take advantage of
the opportunity.
"Experience does factor in some, but I think
what factors in a whole lot more to that is readi-
ness, excitement and what your expectations
are," UF coach Amanda Butler said.
UF doesn't want to settle for simply making
it to the Big Dance.
In fact, the Gators feel like they have some-
thing to prove after not getting the higher seed
they thought they deserved.


"We have a chip on our shoulder right now,"
Brooks said. "We're ready to go out there and
play."
The team they'll face has two common op-
ponents with the Gators. The Owls fell to Au-
burn and FSU early in the season by double-
digit margins.
UF went 1-1 against those two teams on the
road, knocking off the Seminoles in Novem-
ber by 15 points but losing to Auburn by 16 in
January.
"One of the things that's been special about
this team all year long is no matter who we
were playing or where we
were playing them, we've
expected to win," Butler said.
"And I don't think that will
change in postseason."
The Gators will be play-
ing on No. 1-seed Connecti-
cut's home floor, and Brooks
Dotson expects the home crowd to
be pulling for the underdog
Owls to knock off the Gators, something she
hopes her team will use to its advantage.
"I think our team will feed off of that,"
Brooks said.
All Butler is concerned about at this point is
beating Temple, no matter how little familiarity
the Gators have with the tournament.
"We have a few players that have some
postseason experience, some NCAA experi-
ence. Most of our team does not," Butler said.
"But I think when you're doing something for
the first time, it's really exciting when you com-
bine a little bit of experience with a whole lot of
excitement.
"I'll take that result."

Donovan shakes up lineup


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

UF coach Billy Donovan shook up the start-
ing lineup in the Gators' opening game of the
National Invitation Tournament, giving fresh-
man Erving Walker the nod over Chandler
Parsons.
Both players scored in double figures, and
Parsons registered just his second double-dou-
ble of the season.
"Coming out of the SEC tournament, it was
pretty obvious that Chandler could be playing
a lot, and I was trying to help him a little bit,"
UF coach Billy Donovan said.
Parsons went for 17 points and a career-
high 14 rebounds against Jacksonville.
"Maybe being in a lot less pressure-, stress-


related role is something he is a lot more com-
fortable with," Donovan said. "He did play
well yesterday."
Parsons is averaging 9.4 points and 5.7 re-
bounds per game this season and is shooting
just 30 percent from 3-point
range.
"I haven't been playing
as well as I should be this
Men's year," he said.
Basketball Donovan said Walker
will start again tonight at 7
when UF (24-10) takes on
Miami in the second round of the NIT.
The Hurricanes (19-12) are led by senior
guard Jack McClinton, who is averaging 19.5
points per game this year and scored 25 against

Gators limp to SEC meet


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer

You may have heard, but in case
you haven't: The UF gymnastics team
is hurting. Bad.
More than a third of the team is
injured, with Alicia Goodwin and
Amanda Castillo the latest to fall.
Goodwin sprained her left knee dur-
ing practice Wednesday and is out for
the Southeastern Conference Cham-
pionships while Castillo partially tore
her left Achilles tendon and is out for
the season.
Already on the physically-unable-
to-perform list: Nicole Ellis, Kailey
Tissue and Rebekah Zaiser.
UF (6-4, 3-3 SEC) is fully aware and
has no choice but to take the injuries in
stride as it preps for the SEC Champi-
onships starting Saturday.


"We could sit here and say, 'Oh my
goodness, woe is me, this just awful. I
can't believe we've sustained injuries
to half our team,'" UF coach Rhonda
Faehn said. "It's not going to get you
anywhere."
In light of the team's injuries, UF
has retooled its lineup for the league
championships while trying to keep
the other two-thirds of the team as
healthy as possible.
Faehn said she was looking for the
team to perform like it did at the be-
ginning of the season.
"We're trying to look at it positive-
ly in the sense that absolutely we still
have potential," Faehn said. "We have

Infield in flux at start of series against Tennessee


* JOSH ADAMS HAS BEEN
MOVED TO SHORTSTOP.

By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

Who's on first, What's on sec-
ond, I Don't Know's on third.
Lately, predicting who will start
in the Gators' infield has been as
confusing as Abbott and Costello's
famous sketch.
UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan has
put out seven different lineups in
the infield in the last eight games
with mostly the same faces, just in
different spots.
When UF (11-7, 0-3 Southeast-
ern Conference) opens its three-
game series against Tennessee
(9-9, 1-2 SEC) at 6:30 tonight in


Gainesville, the infield could have
a new look again.
"Good infielders can usually
play anywhere you ask them to
play as long as they have practiced
there," O'Sullivan said. "It's not
like we're asking a guy to play sec-
ond who hasn't taken ground balls
there."
The infielders Josh Adams,
Jerico Weitzel, Mike Mooney,
Clayton Pisani, Brandon McArthur
and Preston Tucker have been
inconsistent. They have commit-
ted an error in 11 of the 18 games
and have had some of their worst
games lately.
On Sunday at Arkansas, the
infielders made four errors, and
they booted another three balls
Wednesday night against Central
Florida.
With only two practice days


a week, they often have to cor-
rect their problems in games, but
the best remedy is usually a short
memory.
"Baseball is a sport where you
just got to forget about stuff,"
Weitzel said. "You have to learn
from your mis-
takes, but you
got to let them go
and move on to
the next day and
the next ground
ball."
They are
Weitzel making the most
of the extra time
they have to improve, though, tak-
ing over 200 ground balls at prac-
tices and getting to the field early
on game days to get in as many
grounders as they can.
To help solve some of the prob-


lems in the infield, O'Sullivan has
replaced Mooney at shortstop,
moving Adams to take over as the
leader of the infield.
Adams describes his style of
leadership as lead-by-example,
but the sophomore is now being
asked to be a vocal leader as well,
something he is still learning how
to do.
As the shortstop and one-half
of the double-play duo, it is crucial
for Adams to communicate with
whoever is playing second base
that game.
"We're leaning on Josh to direct
traffic at shortstop," O'Sullivan
said. "It's the same old baseball
philosophy that you have to be
strong up the middle to be a good
team, and that's why we moved
Josh there."
While Adams is finding a home


at short, O'Sullivan plans on tak-
ing advantage of the versatility of
his other players to find a lineup
that consistently works.
He has used Mooney at short
and third, Pisani at second and
third and McArthur at first and
third.
Mooney and Pisani, along with
Adams and Weitzel, have all seen
time in practice at second, short
and third to keep as many options
open as possible.
And the Gators' skipper isn't
planning to stop mixing up his in-
field anytime soon.
"It's your responsibility as
a coach to keep trying differ-
ent things to see what works,"
O'Sullivan said.
"It would be silly to run out the
same lineup every game if things
aren't clicking."


Walker tries to take charge of freshman class, become team leader


HOOPS, from page 22


Providence on Wednesday.
"McClinton is a lot like (Kentucky guard) Jodie Meeks,"
Donovan said. "He's a great shooter. He can go for 30 or 40 on
any given night."
The Hurricanes missed out on the NCAA Tournament de-
spite wins against No. 16 FSU, No. 12 Wake Forest and Mary-
land.
"We're playing a team that was preseason in the top 10, top
15, that's in the (Atlantic Coast Conference) and has one of the
best players in the country," Donovan said. "I think our guys
will understand that."

She also mentioned big contributions from
all-arounders Elizabeth Mahlich and Court-
ney Gladys.
The Gators welcome back Hartung, who
has been sidelined the last two meets with a
third-degree strain of the soleus muscle in her
left calf, to the competitive lineup.
She will be performing on uneven bars
and balance beam, and Faehn said Hartung
would probably be in the vault lineup as


well.
She still won't compete on floor exercise
in an effort to get her fully healthy for the
NCAA Regional competition on April 4.
Courtney Gladys,
who has competed in
the all-around in the last
two meets, will make it
three straight in the SEC
Gymnastics Championships.
"I enjoy doing all-
around, to be able to step in for a teammate. I
was more than happy to do it," Gladys said.
Given the injuries, Faehn said the team is


re-evaluating how it heads into the meet. The
main focus is to have every gymnast hit every
routine possible.
Winning isn't out of the question, but the
Gators will need some help from other SEC
foes, including Georgia, which beat UF 198.2
to 196.65 earlier this season.
The No. 1 Bulldogs' score is the nation's
highest this season.
For a team running on fumes, UF is also
running on team unity something not to be
overrated on the competition floor.
"Almost every other week there was an-
other person going down," Gladys said.


"Our team has come together closer this year
because of it. Staying strong and staying as
one unit is going to help us get through the
year."
With such a close-knit group, it hasn't
been easy for the healthy ones to see their
teammates' seasons cut short.
"It's definitely taking a toll on us," said
Ashley Kerr, who unexpectedly filled in for
Amanda Castillo on beam during the Utah
meet on March 13.
"It's really cool that I can be out there, but
I hate the reasoning. I love that I'm able to
step up, but at what cost?"

No. 1 softball enters toughest stretch of SEC season


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

The UF softball team is ready for a little
March Madness of its own.
The No. 1 Gators (29-2, 8-0 Southeastern
Conference) are entering one of the tough-
est stretches of the season with back-to-back
series against two highly ranked conference
rivals ahead.
With No. 2 Alabama coming to town next
weekend, UF will face No. 6 Tennessee (24-3,
2-0 SEC) in a three-game home stand at Katie
Seashole Pressly Stadium this weekend, start-
ing with a doubleheader Saturday at 1 p.m.
"We're in the toughest part of our season,"
UF coach Tim Walton said. "This is probably
where the SEC will be won and lost in the
next two weeks."
UF only dropped one conference matchup
last season a 1-0 loss at Alabama and
although the team knows the next few weeks
will be the biggest test so far this season, Wal-
ton wants his players to take a more emotional


outlook on the two SEC showdowns.
"The winning ways are almost becoming
expectations and becoming part of a busi-
nesslike mentality," he said. "The majority of
players on this team are 99-7 over a two-year
period, and you can't argue with the success
that they've had. I just want them to play with
a little more enthusiasm and play with a little
more excitement."
UF might also want to
play with more aggressive-
ness at the plate after their
slow start against Florida
International on Wednes-
day. The Gators were outhit
7-4 by the Golden Panthers
in their first game.
Walton "If we're going to be suc-
cessful against Tennessee,
we're going to have to do a much better job
swinging the bat and swinging at good pitches
and putting a team away really, really early,"
Walton said after Wednesday's games.
Sophomore pitcher Stephanie Brombacher
(14-0, 0.72 ERA) said she expects her team-


mates to return to their early season form at
the plate in the upcoming conference series,
but the team's performance out in the field
will be most critical to its success.
"It's going to be a fight to the end. Every
game's going to be close, and we need to play
defense like we did (against FIU)," Brom-
bacher said. "We need to hit the ball a little bit
better, but I think our hitters are ready, and I
know our team's ready for Tennessee."
MEN'S GOLF TRAVELS TO GEORGIA FOR E-Z-GO
INVITATIONAL: While students are looking for-
ward to the relaxation that comes with the end
of the semester, the No. 5 UF men's golfers are
looking forward to the end of school for a dif-
ferent reason.
To them, late April means one thing: the
postseason. With only two events remaining
in the regular season, the Gators want to make
the most of their last two tournaments.
The team travels to Statesboro, Ga., to play
in the Chris Schenkel E-Z-Go Invitational to-
day, the first of those final two regular-season
events.
"The challenge for us is to keep improving


and play well," coach Buddy Alexander said.
"We have to try to focus on the little things, on
where we might improve, rather than just go-
ing up there with the sole goal of winning the
golf tournament," he said.
Creativity and decision-making on the
course are two of the key areas Alexander said
his team must improve before season's end.
UF's previous two tournaments featured
some of the top competition in the country. In
this tournament, however, UF will be the top-
ranked team participating.
"I think our kids are going up there with the
idea that we have a pretty legitimate chance to
win the golf tournament," Alexander said.
Senior Billy Horschel added to his coach's
statement, saying that his team does not want
to settle with a top-five national ranking.
"People can say we are playing well, but
what we want to do here in Florida is win
tournaments," Horschel said.
The five golfers who will play for UF this
weekend are Horschel, Tim McKenney, Will
Strickler, Tyson Alexander and Mu Hu.
