Medical school irate over faculty bonuses


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org


Questions have arisen recently over the
payment of millions of dollars in bonuses and
incentives to College of Medicine faculty while
budget cuts threaten the jobs of dozens of em-


ployees and academic programs at UF.
An e-mail sent by Bruce Kone, former dean
of the College of Medicine, to faculty in the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences who could
see their departments slashed substantially in
the next round of cuts, calls attention to the bo-
nuses and accuses UF of not doing all it can to
protect departments from crippling cuts.


"The idea that UF doesn't have enough
money to continue support for you is prepos-
terous," he wrote.
U F UF records show
Administration that, last year, hun-
dreds of College of
Medicine faculty were paid about $7.6 million
in bonuses and incentives, down from about


$9.2 million the previous year.
The awards amount to about 1.3 percent of
the college's total budget in 2007-2008, which
was about $550 million.
"Makes AIG seem paltry," Kone wrote in
his e-mail, referring to the $165 million in bo-

release cuts

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator org

The College of Medicine released their 10 per-
cent budget cut proposal late Wednesday, which
would cut about $3.8 million and result in the lay-
offs of seven faculty and staff positions, according
to UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes.
Other proposals were also obtained Thursday,
including the College of Design,
Construction & Planning, the
College of Journalism and the
College of Dentistry.
In the College of Medicine's
proposal, two of the laid off em-
ployees have secured other jobs
with the college, Sikes said.
Sikes Twenty-eight positions that ..
will be vacant will be left un-
filled, saving more than $2 million.
The proposal will also reduce funding for some
research programs and delay the roll out of a can-c
cer program, Sikes said.
The plan will have no effect on enrollment, she
said.

LOCAL

Smokers, businesses prepare for cigarette tax increase


By JACQUELYNE SMITH
Alligator Writer

Smokers will have yet another incentive to
kick the habit after an April 1 tax increase, and
local retailers are bracing themselves for the
effects. The federal excise tax will increase for


small cigarettes from 39 cents to $1.01 per pack
and from $3.90 to $10.07 per carton, according
to the U. S. Department of the Treasury's Alco-
hol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau's Web
site.
Jimi Hiley, a tobacconist at Modem Age
Tobacco & Gift Shop on West University Av-


enue, said he doesn't expect to see a large drop
in sales because of the increase.
Hiley said he believes raising the price of
tobacco is not an effective means of getting
people to quit and stop buying tobacco, al-
though some customers have complained.
"It does affect businesses on some level,"


he said. "I mean some people are saying 'you
may have priced me out of my habit.' I think
that's a horrible way to get someone to quit."
Nazim Uddin, owner of Gator Tobacco,
said sales are expected to drop a little as prices

Three arrested for stealing $5K from store
A Gainesville Wal-Mart Supercenter em-
ployee and two other people were arrested
Wednesday after being accused of stealing
almost $5,000 from the store.
Niki Sessions, 34, Erica Harden, 31, and
Karim Livingston, 32, have been charged with
grand theft and scheme to defraud and obtain
property.
According to the Gainesville Police De-
partment arrest report, since Jan. 31, Harden
and Livingston bought items at the cash regis-


ter Sessions worked at and paid in cash.
Sessions would give them hundreds of
dollars in change, more than was due to them,
and caused the cash register's total amount of
money to come up short, the report stated.
This happened 11 times with the amount
of money taken totaling $4,959.44.
When arrested, Sessions said he gave
Harden and Livingston money because he
was mad at Wal-Mart and trying to retaliate
because the store hadn't given him a bonus.

UF ADMINISTRATION

Professor returns after union challenges her layoff


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org
It took one sentence to lay her off and one
more to reinstate her.
UF assistant professor of Czech stud-
ies Hana Filip received a one-sentence letter
Wednesday notifying her that she had her
job back, becoming the second professor this
week to be reinstated.
"The University of Florida hereby with-
draws its layoff notice dated June 9, 2008," the
letter, signed by UF Provost Joe Glover, reads.
"Now it's funny," Filip said of the terse let-
ters. "But, believe me, it was not funny until


yesterday."
Filip was scheduled to lose her job in June
as a result of the $6 million budget cut experi-
enced by the College of Liberal Arts and Sci-
ences in 2008-2009. Her layoff was challenged
by the United Faculty of Florida, the UF fac-
ulty union, and an arbitration hearing was set
for April 21, Filip said.
UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said UF de-
cided to reverse Filip's layoff before the hear-
ing because of an arbitrator's ruling in a simi-
lar case, heard in January and decided earlier
this month.
Andrea Pham, assistant professor of lin-
guistics and Vietnamese language, who was
laid off around the same time as Filip, was or-


dered to be reinstated on the grounds that UF
violated its contract with the faculty union.
The ruling states UF can
only target organizational
units such as departments
for layoffs, and that Pham's
two Vietnamese classes did
not constitute such a unit, as
UF contended.
"I did not expect it," Fil-
Filip ip said of UF's decision. "It
was a good surprise."
"I'm just hugely relieved that I can go back
and just do my work," she said. She said she
hasn't been told yet what she'll be teaching
next year. Paul D'Anieri, dean of CLAS, wrote


in an e-mail that he will talk with the heads of
the programs in which Filip teaches to decide
that in the coming days. More classes will like-
ly be added to the schedule soon, he wrote.
He also wrote that he wasn't sure where
the money to reinstate Filip will come from.
The college is currently preparing for a pos-
sible cut of about $9.3 million. "We'll need to
identify deeper cuts in order to pay for these
unanticipated expenses," D'Anieri wrote.
Filip said she has mixed feelings about the
experience of being laid off then reinstated.
"On the one hand, I am grateful for all
the support from the faculty here but, on the
other hand, it was a huge trauma I was put
through," she said.

Losing local candidates discuss


city elections, plan for future


Mayor wants to


boost spending

By KATHERINE BEIN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Now Gainesville residents have more reason than ever to
do business in Florida.
Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan, alongside mayors
across the state, joined Gov. Charlie Crist in support of a new
strategy to boost local spending.
Everyone will have access to the Florida Backyard Card,
which offers discounts to those who shop at participating
stores. Card users can get as much as $100 off nightly rates at
a luxury resort, or 10 percent off guitar strings at Gainesville's
Hoggtowne Music, Inc.
State People can get the cards for free at Florida
News Lotto retailers or online at FloridaBackyardCard.
com.
"The revenues produced from dollars spent in our com-
munities pay for vital services such as roads, schools, police
protection, fire service and public safety," Hanrahan said in a
press release.
The mayor did not immediately respond to phone calls for
comment.
David Denslow, a UF economics professor, said this kind
of incentive is similar to discount coupons at a grocery store.
Those most likely to take advantage of it are those who are
most price-sensitive.
Additionally, since demand has decreased in the weak
economy, coupons allow businesses to lower prices for select
groups.
It's a nice idea, Denslow said, but it might not be effective.
"Maybe you eat out 11 times instead of 10. Maybe you
switch spending away from things without coupons to things
with coupons. It's not going to have much impact on overall
spending."


* SOME PLAN TO RUN AGAIN.

By RACHAEL PINO
Alligator Writer

Losing City Commission candidates said they antici-
pate bright political futures, despite landslide victories
by incumbents in Tuesday's Gainesville City Elections.
Although their platforms disagreed, candidates
could agree that they learned from the campaign.
"Oh, it was fantastic," said Richard Selwach, candi-
date for At-Large seat 1. "Everybody's really happy that
I participated and gave people another choice," he said,
adding that business at his pawn shop increased due to
the publicity.
"I have a line out the door," he said. "I can't buy this
type of advertising."
Selwach said he only received 6.19 percent of votes
because the incumbents got more publicity and cam-
paign contributions.
He said if there had been a primary, the results
wouldn't have been divided up between so many can-
didates. In that case, he said, there probably would have
been a run-off between Jeanna Mastrodicasa, Robert
Krames and himself.
District 1 Commissioner Scherwin Henry captured
68.21 percent of votes, and At-Large Commissioner Jean-
na Mastrodicasa received 58.13 percent of the votes.
"Even though I lost, I feel I did the best job out of
all the candidates," Selwach said, adding that his unique
point of view made the debates more lively.
Selwach added that Mastrodicasa's and Krames'
campaign contributions and his position as a conserva-
tive libertarian made it difficult for him to win.
Selwach's possible plans include running for District
4 commissioner, where he lives, or for mayor if Craig
Lowe, a city commissioner and leader of anti-Amend-
ment 1 group Equality is Gainesville's Business, also
decides to run.
"Next year, there won't be an incumbent," he said.

James Schlachta, who secured 4 percent of the At-
Large votes, said this was his first campaign.
"It was a great group of people running," Schlachta
said. "It was good to see more than two people running.
We got to see more of a diverse group."
Like Selwach, Schlachta credited financial contribu-
tions to Mastrodicasa and Krames as a big reason for
their higher numbers.
"Jeanna and Robert were able to raise a lot more
money, and that helped out a lot," Schlachta said.
Schlachta, who was pro-Amendment 1, said that he
probably got a lower percentage of the
votes because many people showed
up at the polls primarily to oppose
Charter Amendment 1, which would
have eliminated the city ordinance
titled "Discrimination."
Although he has no definite plans,
SSchlachta said he may run for City
Seiwach Commission again.
Robert Krames, the runner-up for
the At-Large seat with 25 percent of the votes, said he
felt that each candidate was heartfelt and that he had no
hard feelings toward the winners.
"I plan to stay involved, and I congratulate all the
candidates on a race well-run," Krames said. "They
were all trying to make the world a better place, and I
compliment them on that."
Tom Cunilio, who earned 6.27 percent of At-Large
seat votes, could not be reached for comment.
Considering it was her first time running for office in
Gainesville and the fact that she has only been a resident
for five years, Marcia Wimberly said getting almost 32
percent of the votes was wonderful.
"We had a great time. People were wonderful,"
Wimberly said.
She also was impressed by the election's high turn-
out.
"We almost tripled," Wimberly said. "That's a plus.
That's a big plus."

STATE

Board of Governors discusses tuition increase bill


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

Florida's Board of Governors
discussed upcoming slashes in the
budget of Florida's 11 public uni-
versities and the happenings of
Florida's legislative session in the
final meetings of a two-day session
on Thursday.
One of the hotter topics dis-
cussed was the differential tuition
bill, which is being considered in
the state Legislature and would al-


low universities to raise tuition by
up to 15 percent per year to reach
the national average.
"We have the lowest tuition fees
in the country," said Bill Edmonds,
the board's spokesman, after the
meeting. "And we're suffering
because of that. We need extra re-
sources."
Cuts to current resources were
addressed in the final meeting, in-
cluding the readjusted budget of the
Public Education Capital Outlay, or
PECO, which is money given every
three years to Florida's 11 public uni-


versities to finance the construction
of new classrooms or labs. The $649
million, which was distributed from
PECO through-
out the university
system during
the last cycle, has
been reduced to
$358 million. Ed-
monds said this
cut reflects the
Poppell state of Florida's
economy.
"This is the steepest drop in
PECO we've ever seen," he said.


This cut will have a direct impact
on UF, as the $92.5 million the uni-
versity has received in past years
will be reduced to $11.9 million.
"It's devastating," said Ed Pop-
pell, vice president of Business Af-
fairs at UF.
Poppell said any plans to start
constructing new buildings on cam-
pus will come to a halt for two to
three years as a result.
"We won't be able to start build-
ing the new chemistry building or
really do anything," he said.
During a committee meeting


the Florida Boots to Books Initia-
tive was also addressed. This GI
Bill, which was passed in the 2008
Congress and will take effect Au-
gust 2009, provides for full tuition,
housing and a $100,000 stipend for
books to returning veterans who are
heading to college.
The board plans to prepare
schools for the provisions of the
new bill, ensuring campuses are
ready for the influx of new students,
said Ann Duncan, student affairs
and campus life committee chair-
woman.

Alligator Writer

Globalization is a tricky word, said au-
thor and visiting professor, Saskia Sassen
Thursday night.


While it implies the increased connec-
tion between people worldwide, it glazes
over the complexity, Sassen said.
"The term is becoming an invitation not
to think," she said.
Sassen, a professor of sociology at Co-
lumbia University who is known for her
study of international immigrants, is visit-
ing UF for a European immigration work-
shop, which begins today at 9 a.m. in Dauer


Hall and lasts until 5.15 p.m.
Her most recent book on the topic is "El-
ements for a Sociology of Globalization,"
published by Norton.
On Instead of just focusing on
Campus immigrants as statistics, Sas-
sen studies their circumstanc-
es, which she calls "spaces." Work is not
the only thing that controls the movement
of an immigrant, she said.


"Spaces like this, your campus, have
a geographic terrain, but they also have
multiple worlds," she said. "There are the
worlds of the students, of the cleaners, of
the professors."
Sassen briefly applied this idea to the
complexities of U.S.-Mexican immigration
and by pointing out that roughly 3 million
retired American citizens live in Mexico, of
which only 1 million are documented.

Editorial
With a mere month remaining in the semester, the De-
partment of Darts & Laurels is starting to worry about
our currently nonexistent plans for the summer.
We're not talking about renting a lake house a la "American
Pie" or crafting the perfect routine to sport 6-pack abs by July -
no, we're talking about a paid internship.
Yes, those two magical words that seem to be paired togeth-
er less than the Gator men's basketball team and the NCAA
tournament.
As we scour Craigslist in search of intellectually driven work
featuring living wages, we feign a smile with this week's too-
bad-our-parents-can't-just-buy-us-an-intemship edition of...



Darts & Laurels

Leave it to the state of Florida for setting an all-time low by
suspending a student from the school bus for a severe bout of
flatulence. For making Jonathan Locke Jr. walk to school simply
because he fancies himself some beans, the Department of Darts
& Laurels chucks a we-LOL'd-when-we-heard-the-bus-driver-
couldn't-breathe DART at Polk County School officials. We
wonder why he couldn't have just cracked a few windows?
Hell, if it had been us, we would've saved the fart to drop on
an unsuspecting teacher in the hallway.
When Bangkok fireman Somchai Yoosabai heard news that
a comic-loving child had unsafely wandered onto a third-floor
balcony, he had just the plan. The Department of Darts & Lau-
rels awards a can-you-climb-walls-and-shoot-webs? LAUREL
to the Spider-Man fireman, for channeling his inner Peter Park-
er and rocking the red, black and blue tights to coax the young
boy off the ledge. Just another day at the office for man who
dons an Ultraman costume to spice up fire drills at schools.
No word on whether Marvel Comics has offered him a con-
tract yet.
Responding to countless questions related to the topic, Presi-
dent Barack Obama took a stance on pot during his virtual town
hall meeting sure to disappoint many of his supporters. For
failing to see the positive economic implications of legalizing
marijuana across the country, the Department of Darts & Lau-
rels launches a we-are-talking-about-the-possibility-of-billions-
of-dollars-here DART at President Barack Obama. Something
tells us that "Barry" wouldn't have minded a few tokes on the
ol' pipe to relaxe his muscles after a rough-and-tumble game
of hoops.
Members of Equality is Gainesville's Business can thank an
unlikely source for helping defeat Charter Amendment 1. The
Department of Darts & Laurels proudly presents a Gainesville-
couldn't-have-done-it-without-you LAUREL to the students of
UF for swarming the polls to vote in Tuesday's city election. To
put things in perspective, nearly seven times more voters made
their opinion count than in the previous stand-alone election.
And to think, the city didn't even need cheesy videos from
Diddy encouraging students to rock the vote.
What began as a heartfelt congratulations to the UF football
team for winning the BCS championship ended in a viral video
sensation sweeping YouTube. For embarrassing The Gator Na-
tion in front of the entire House of Representatives on Capitol
Hill, the Department of Darts & Laurels tosses a his-name-is-
Percy-Harvin-not-Percy-Harvey DART at Rep. Corrine Brown
from the 3rd District of Florida. Let's do a quick fact check, it's
Coach Urban Meyer, not Corch Urban Meyers, as Brown so elo-
quently states during her speech.
The Department of Darts & Laurels gives back the balance
of our time. Instead of simply sparing their loose pocket change
for panhandlers, one father and son duo turned to the Internet
to help those less fortunate than themselves. The Department
of Darts & Laurels extends a they-raised-$50,000-in-donations-
in-less-than-two-months LAUREL to Kevin and Sean Dolan,
for providing Timothy Edwards a new lease on life after de-
cades of homelessness by paying him to promote their Web site,
PimpThisBum.com. For Edwards, just carrying a sign baring
the web address netted him $100 a day along with a free trip to
rehab thanks to one generous donor visiting the site.
That's all for this week. "Go Gator!"

Today's question: Let's rage?


ALLIGATOR
www.alligator.org/opinions


THE ECONOMIC DOWNTURN HAS CAUSED AN INCREASE IN THE
NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO VISIT PSYCHICS.


Column

Madoff's prison time won't be enough


veryone loves a villain. Well, we like to hear about
them, anyway.
There's something magnetic about a character
who thrives on mayhem. In "No Country for Old Men,"
Javier Bardem's character made taking lives seem as
second-nature as blinking. The result of this maniac
bringing his bloodshed to the big screen? An Academy
Award for Best Picture and a bunch of nerds calling
each other friend-o.
That was 2007, but conveniently enough, the past
year has provided two more prime examples of this
phenomenon.
Audiences nationwide were treated to the delightful-
ly sadistic and sloppily made-up Joker, courtesy of the
late Heath Ledger, in last July's "The Dark Knight." The
classic villain renewed my interest in magic within 30
minutes. I'm sure I wasn't the only one in the audience
grinning when the Joker made a No. 2 pencil disappear
into Gangbanger No. 3's eye socket. And we only use
pencils for Scantrons and crosswords. Lame.
The rest of the movie featured the Joker (self-pro-
claimed agent of chaos) bombing, slicing and mind-
fucking his way through Gotham City. Entertaining?
Yes. Gruesome? A little. Predictable? Not even close -
which is why we can't get enough of it. The Joker was
an unbelievable bastard, and the audience loved to hate
him.
Fortunately for the movie-going public, such a ma-
niac was reserved solely for the big screen. We weren't
without our real-life villain, though, who was much less
violent but equally as calculating. Cue Bernard Madoff,
pilferer of savings. He doesn't paint his face or sew his
own purple suits, but he does rob bank accounts.


Audiences did not respond well
to Madoff's grimy deeds (he even
scammed Kevin Bacon!), and his
150-year prison sentence won't
provide much relief. You can't
steal from the guy who says he's
Adam Wynn worked with everyone in Holly-
letters@alligator.org wood and get away with it. If you
piss him off, you've lost the whole
West Coast. And if you lose Hol-
lywood, you lose tabloid readers, which mean you lose
every American who's ever been to the grocery store.
Congrats, Madoff. The entire U.S. population, which
swears to a violent, Oscar-winning clown, is now pissed
you only got 150 years for stealing other people's mon-
ey. This isn't the fun kind of loathing Hunter S. Thomp-
son taught us about. It isn't the hatred we go to theaters
for. No. This is you-stole-from-us-while-sipping-tea-in-
our-living-room fury. You no longer have friends, Mr.
Madoff. Most people are crossing their fingers that you
spend the next century and a half with clones of Bogs
from "The Shawshank Redemption."
If it's any consolation, everyone is going to remem-
ber your name. Like I said, we love villains. It's much
easier to blame a name and a face for our problems than
an abstract concept like the economy.
For now, Madoff's name is going to appear in the
headlines every time he does something other than tuck
his tail between his legs. Like Ledger's Joker, the pub-
lic will continue to obsess over this bad guy, but there
won't be any praise or awards on the way.

Guest column

Morning-after kit cures walk of shame


Letter to the Editor
Opportunity Scholars deserve their awards
Johnathan Lott's column on the need to increase
the quality of education at UF is well-intentioned but
terribly misguided. First, Florida Opportunity Schol-
ars are held to the same admission standards as other
UF students. So to suggest that there is a "lack of any
notable academic qualifications" is to suggest that not
only are the scholarship recipients underqualified,
but that the rest of UF students are undeserving of
admissions as well. Immediately after, he suggested
that this program is risky because some of the money
will be wasted on students who "can't handle UF."
The fact is that 96 percent of Florida Opportunity
Scholars return after their freshman year, compared
to 94 percent for other UF students. Furthermore, 65
percent of those students had a 3.0 GPA or better.
While I agree that UF's reputation and educational
quality must be improved, the problem does not re-
side with academic merits of the students.
We should focus on developing innovative curric-
ulum that stimulates and engages students. We also
need to consider a faculty member's merit as an edu-
cator and mentor equal to his or her ability to publish
or bring in grant money. Not recognizing a student's
academic achievements in overcoming the obstacles
of growing up in a working class household is more
than just inconsiderate, it's morally despicable.

Swimmers relocate due to campus pool's renovations


* THE POOL AT THE O'DOME WILL
CLOSE UNTIL THIRD WEEK IN JUNE.

By MARY MANCHESS
Alligator Contributing Writer
The indoor pool at the O'Connell Center
closed on Monday due to renovations.
According to Erva Gilliam, the coordina-
tor for UF swimming, the renovations will
be complete the third week of June and will
include resurfacing the pool deck and re-
placing the current flooring with tile.
Some starting blocks in the deep end will


also be resurfaced, and additional painting
will be done around the pool's perimeter.
"Basically, it's due for a face lift," Gilliam
said. "It will help with recruiting efforts and
help us be a little more competitive with the
universities that are building and have built
facilities."
When asked about the budget, Gilliam
declined to comment. However, she said the
University Athletic Association would pro-
vide the funding for the project.
While the renovations are anticipated to
enhance the pool's appearance, they have
caused inconveniences.
Gilliam said the UF swim team had to


"Basically, it's due for a face lift."
Erva Gilliam
UF swimming coordinator

reschedule its two-a-day practices at differ-
ent locations. Members of the Club Alliga-
tor Swim Team, who usually practice at the
pool Monday through Friday, have not been
able to meet.
Diane James, the risk management and
aquatics coordinator for RecSports, said
some of the indoor pool's usual activities
have been either postponed or rescheduled
until the renovations are complete.


One of the options to relocate the pool's
functions is the Florida Pool, which belongs
to the College of Health and Human Per-
formance. However, the pool's schedule
includes some academic classes in the eve-
ning, so there is no room to schedule time
for recreational swimming.
The renovations have also cut 90 hours a
week for student lifeguards.
"Because we knew this was going to hap-
pen and we knew it would impact us so
strongly, we chose to rewrite the schedule
once spring break was over," James said.
"We kept everyone employed that's
the bottom line."

Air Force ROTC cadet Maj. Rudolph Mclntyre chats with cadet Col. Jared Bowen, right, after their Pass-
In-Review at Flavet Field Thursday afternoon.


By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

About 300 Air Force, Marine
Corps, Army and Navy ROTC ca-
dets marched past their reviewing
officer in UF's ROTC Joint Service
Pass-in-Review Thursday.
UF administrators, friends and
family watched from under a white
canopy as cadets marched to the
beat of a three-membered band.
It's the only thing done at UF
that incorporates all the branches
of ROTC, said Phillip Fischer,
event spokesman.
UF is one of only 38 schools in
the U.S. that has all four branches
of the military. About 100 people
attended the ceremony.
Additionally, retired Cpl.
Duane E. Dewey was recognized
as one of 97 living recipients of the
Medal of Honor and only one of


nine in Florida.
After the ceremony, many of the
cadets hurried to salute and shake
hands with Dewey and other high-
ranking officers.
Some cadets stopped to take
pictures with their family and
friends who came out to watch the
review.
UF employee Cin-
Student dy Bryant came to
support her husband,
Brad Bryant, a cadet
commander in Air Force ROTC.
"It's kind of sad because my
husband is graduating," she said.
"This is kind of the last big
thing before his commissioning."
Dewey, who lives in Alachua
County, said he was proud of the
cadets.
"It's great to be here and watch
all the troops," he said. "They did
a great job out there."

Worries about economy spark business for psychics


By AMANDA MILLIGAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Elizabeth Jones used to ask questions
about relationships and family.
Now, Jones, a 33-year-old Gainesville
resident, has been asking a psychic about
her economic future.
"I don't know how I'm going to be able
to afford to do everything I need to do," she
said. "I don't know how I'm going to be able
to buy Christmas for my daughter."
Jones talks to Pernel, a seer at Krystalnet
Psychic Consultants, Inc., two to three times
a week. She asks if she's going to be able to
afford food and medication for her daughter
and if she'll be able to get the jobs she ap-
plies for.
She might not be the only one asking.
There's anecdotal evidence that psychics
have become more popular during these
economic times, according to an article in
USA Today.


Two local psychics have noticed an in-
crease in the number of people wanting to
meet with them.
Jesse Lucas, a seer at Wild Iris Books, said
his business has increased about 400 percent
over the past two years, particularly in the
past year and a half.
"The economy's been very good for my
business, surprisingly enough," Lucas said.
Lucas said he has noticed a shift in the
content of questions. He said the questions
are becoming less about people's personal
lives and more about their fiscal lives.
"It's probably the one thing that's on ev-
erybody's mind," he said. "It's been really
hard on a lot of my clients."
Some are now destitute because the econ-
omy caused them to lose almost everything,
he said. One of his clients, whom he con-
siders a professional in the working world,
became unemployed and homeless because
of the economy.
"She called me seven times yesterday


[Wednesday] because she needed answers,"
he said. "She needed a way out."
He said college students seem more wor-
ried about the economy as well. They ask
him about how they can live on their bud-
gets and if they'll be able to pay their bills.
"The economy's been very good
for my business, surprisingly
enough."
Jesse Lucas
Seer at Wild Iris Books

"That surprises me," he said. "Students
have always been preoccupied with rela-
tionships."
Theresa, of Psychic Readings by Theresa,
didn't notice an increased concern in stu-
dents about the economy, but about 20 per-
cent to 30 percent more people have gone for
readings in the past five or six months.


Students ask her about the choices they
should make about majors and career paths.
They want to know if they'll be successful
and stay in their current fields.
Although Pemel said she has not seen
a dramatic increase in customers, she has
seen a change in the questions customers
ask. Pernel said the most common questions
she's asked are about love lives, but those
about the economy are quickly catching up.
She has also noticed more questions relating
to stress.
"I think that has a lot to do with the econ-
omy," she said. "It's putting a high stress
level on families."
Jones said Pernel has given her a lot of
good advice about issues relating to money,
her ex-husband and her daughter. But Per-
nel has assisted in more ways than one.
"By the time I'm done talking to her,
she's really calmed me down and helped me
a lot," Jones said. "She gives me a real sense
of peace."

Event held to raise awareness of poverty in Africa


By EMILY FUGGETTA
Alligator Writer
efuggetta@alligator.org

The Plaza of the Americas turned
into a mock refugee camp Thursday
when about 60 students gathered at
an event to learn about global pov-
erty and disease.
The ONE campaign's event to
promote awareness of problems in
Africa, kicked off with a screening
of "Sons of Lwala," a documentary
about two Kenyan brothers who
built a clinic in their hometown,
Lwala, to fulfill their father's dream
of having a medical facility there.
Ten students watched the docu-
mentary and stayed to hear a speech
by Peter Ter, a former Sudanese ref-
ugee who was forced from his home
due to civil war during the '80s.
He spoke about the fear and hun-
ger he dealt with while in the refu-
gee camps and the tragedy he saw
when moving from place to place
fleeing from the bombs.
Ter, who got his GED in Jackson-
ville and studies political science at
UF, plans to join the Peace Corps.
He said he isn't bitter about his ex-
periences.
"There is no need to be vindic-
tive," he said. "The best way is to


forgive people."
After Ter's speech, the event con-
tinued in the Plaza of the Americas,
where UF's branch of the ONE cam-
paign offered tables from different
UF organizations with information
on gender equality, child health,
extreme poverty and hunger, envi-
ronmental sustainability, maternal
health, global partnership and HIV
education.
About 5 people were given free
HIV blood tests.
"We live in an area where
the worst thing that hap-
pens to us might be a bad
test grade."
Bryant Shannon
UF ONE campaign president


Beaded necklaces and bracelets
made by Ugandan women were
sold. All profits from the jewelry
will go back to the women.
Bryant Shannon, UF's ONE cam-
paign president, who is ONE's list
of top national student leaders, said
the group held the event to raise
awareness in students who might
not know the details of Africa's
problems.


"We live in an area where the
worst thing that happens to us might
be a bad test grade," he said. "We
want to spark attention and bring


these issues to the limelight."
UF management sophomore
Jack Lee said he was interested to
see educational outreach on a cam-


pus level.
"It's good to see that UF is actu-
ally doing something about it," he
said.

O'Dome will host UF's fifth annual Relay for Life


* EVENT TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE
AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY.

By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

This weekend the O'Connell Center won't
be filled with Gator fans cheering for a sports
team. Instead, it will house UF's fifth annual
Relay for Life.


Relay for Life, a national fundraising event,
which donates proceeds to the American Can-
cer Society to fund cancer research, will begin
Friday at 6 p.m. and last until noon Saturday.
This 18-hour event honors people who
have survived cancer and those who lost their
fight with the disease, said David Rountree,
UF's Relay for Life event chairman.
About 80 teams, made up of 10 to 15 people,
were sponsored to walk the track in memory
of those who fought cancer, Rountree said.
Rountree said UF raised about $105,000 last


year, and expects to raise a similar amount this
year, despite the economic downturn.
He said about $90,000 has already been
raised, and fundraising efforts will continue
during the event.
"Going into the school year I was worried
the economy would affect our goal," he said,
adding he was happy to see people still gave
generously.
"People really dug into their pockets, and
it's really exceeded my expectations," he said.
At this year's Relay, local bands, dance


troupes and two comedians will be perform-
ing, as well as the UF competitive cheerlead-
ing squad and the Santa Fe College cheerlead-
ing squad.
The Luminaria ceremony will be held on
Friday at 9 p.m. During this ceremony, can-
dles are lit and placed inside bags bearing the
names of those who have fought cancer. The
bags are then placed along the track.
"[The ceremony is] to honor those who
have fallen from cancer," Rountree said.


ON CAMPUS

Play held to stop


domestic violence

By REBECCA WEISS
Alligator Contributing Writer

The UF organization Victory Over Violence will present
"The Vagina Monologues" on Sunday, March 29 to promote
awareness about domestic abuse and raise money for Peaceful
Paths, a non-profit domestic abuse center in Gainesville.
The play, based off of Eve Ensler's book, covers a broad
range of women's topics in a funny, sad, and moving way, said
Jackie Azis, president of Victory Over Violence and director of
the play.
"It's personal in that a lot of the stories women
can relate to people don't expect it to be so
moving."

"It talks about everything from hair to tampons, to exams,
and then it gets to serious stuff such as rape and incest and mu-
tilation," she said. "It's personal in that a lot of the stories wom-
en can relate to people don't expect it to be so moving."
So far, about 96 tickets have been sold for the first showing,
Logan Jaffe/ Alligator at 12:30 pm, and 133 for the second showing, at 3:30 pm.
Ninety percent of the play's proceeds go to Peaceful Paths

Uddin: Consumers are switching from mainstream cigarettes to off-brands


TAX, from page 1

go up, but that he thought it was
only going to really affect sales for
two to three months.
"People tend to calm down and
buy less," he said.
Uddin said he has started to see
a trend in which consumers are
switching from mainstream brands
to off-brands.
Some products, like roll-your-


own tobacco, have seen over a 2,000
percent price increase, he said. Roll-
your-own tobacco used to be a low-
er-cost alternative to cigarettes, Hi-
ley said, but now it's going to be just
as expensive. The tax will rise from
$1.10 per pound to $24.78 per pound
of tobacco. Additionally, cigarette
papers and cigarette tubes taxes will
increase, but by a lesser amount.
Uddin said he buys his cigarettes
wholesale from Sam's Club, and


they've been charging the tax for
two weeks.
While Hiley said he understands
the purpose of the tax, he isn't happy
that it was placed in
Local the laps of smokers.
News The increase was
included in the Chil-
dren's Health Insurance Program
Reauthorization Act of 2009 to help
provide an additional $31.5 billion
over the next 4 1/2 years for health


care for uninsured children from
low-income families, according to
the bureau's Web site.
Hiley said he recently has had
trouble finding some brands of to-
bacco, because other retailers have
stockpiled up. This is a bad strategy,
he said, because retailers have to pay
a floor stocks tax on all merchandise
they have for sale on April 1 even
if the merchandise was bought be-
fore the tax increase.


"They won't make a profit that
way," he said. "It all evens out."
The price of some packs of small
cigarettes at Modem Age have al-
ready gone up $1, before the April
1 effective date, Hiley said, because
some wholesale retailers have grad-
ually raised their prices in the last
few weeks to adjust to the new tax
rates.
"This is the largest tax increase
I've seen," he said.


The College of Journalism's proposal will eliminate the Documentary Institute


PROPOSAL, from page 1


The college focused on cutting the dean's
office first, with almost half of the 10 percent
reduction coming from that office, she wrote.
The College of Journalism's $909,000 pro-
posal would involve eight layoffs, according to
information provided by dean John Wright.
Seven of those are faculty members, he said,
and one is a staff member. The plan would also
leave two positions unfilled and eliminate one
employee in the Deferred Retirement Option
Program (DROP).
The proposal would also get rid of the col-


lege's Documentary Institute and the master's
degree program in Documentary Film.
Four of the layoffs, all faculty members,
would be in the Documentary Institute. Wright
said the institute, although award-winning, is
not as central to the college's mission.
The College of Dentistry's proposal in-
cludes plans for a cut of almost $1.7 million,
though college spokeswoman Karen Rhoden-
izer said the college expects to make up some
of those potential losses with other revenues
from its clinical practice as well as donations
and grants.
The proposal states that clinical revenues
increased about $1.2 million, or 16 percent,


from last year.
The proposal does not include any layoffs
but Rhodenizer said some positions will be left
unfilled, though how many is unclear.
It also includes
UF plans to reduce the
Administration number of speakers
for the dean's semi-
nars and spending on food for research-relat-
ed meetings.
The college's departments were also asked
to make across-the-board cuts of 2 to 3 percent.
The college does not plan to reduce enroll-
ment, Rhodenizer said.
All colleges and administrative units were


asked to submit 10 percent budget cut propos-
als in anticipation of a possible reduction in
the university-wide budget of $72 million to
$75 million.
Proposals are due to UF Provost Joe Glover
by April 1 and will be publicly released April
15, which will open a period of public com-
ment until the final plan must be submitted to
the Board of Trustees, which will take the final
vote sometime in May.
The 10 percent proposals have been called
a "worst-case scenario." When UF submits its
final budget, it plans to enact vertical cuts, cut-
ting some colleges more than others, instead of
even across-the board cuts.






FRIDAY, MARCH 27, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 13


Bonuses came from practicing faculty; no state funds were used


BONUSES, from page 1


nuses paid to AIG executives after the com-
pany's federal bailout.
The largest single award to a UF fac-
ulty member was an incentive payment of
$99,000. Most payments were below $5,000,
though some received multiple payments.
Money for the awards came from the Fac-
ulty Practice Plan, said Michael Good, dean
of the college. The plan is funded by revenues
from faculty members practicing medicine,
Good said.
"This is faculty working in the clinic,
working in the hospital, taking care of pa-
tients," he said. "No state funds were used to
pay these bonuses."
"This isn't AIG," he said.
While some faculty who got awards do
not treat patients, most who received the
awards contributed to the practice plan, UF
spokesman Steve Orlando said.
Good argued the awards are necessary to
keep top faculty at UF.
"In the highly competitive world of aca-
demic medicine, we have to compete for doc-
tors that could be practicing at Harvard, at


Duke, at San Francisco," he said.
Faculty are evaluated based on patient
satisfaction and professionalism, as well as
the number of patients they see and proce-
dures they perform, and are compensated
accordingly, he said.
But some critics, such as John Biro, presi-
dent of the United Faculty of Florida, UF's
faculty union, argue the money could be
better spent by preventing layoffs instead of
adding to the salaries of some faculty.
"How come we have all that money and
then we have to fire tenure-track faculty in
CLAS (the College of Liberal Arts and Scienc-
es) and the school of education?" he asked,
adding UF continues to hire new administra-
tors, faculty and staff.
"I don't see how an administration can
be allowed to get away with this," Biro said.
"That's not what you do in a university, that's
what you do at Enron maybe."
Orlando said it's possible the money used
for bonuses and incentives could be put to-
ward other things, like preventing layoffs,
for example, but he said that would hurt the
health of the practice plan.
"If you are one of the people performing
the service and providing medical care for


the community... and then suddenly (the
money is) being used for purposes other than
the College of Medicine...it becomes a disin-
centive," he said.
The argument that UF should use funds
from other colleges and even affiliated orga-
nizations, such as Shands
at UF or the University
Athletic Association, is not
a new one.
Members of UF's facul-
ty union asked UF to do it
last year, and the idea was
thrust into the spotlight
earlier this month when
members of the faculty
and graduate assistant unions proposed it at
the Board of Trustees meeting.
Though some university officials have
said UF cannot take money from affiliated
organizations, such as Shands at UF, which
held about $600 million in unrestricted assets
in 2008, to balance its budget, the process is
technically possible, said Matt Fajack, UF's
chief financial officer.
However, he said it would be difficult. The
board of directors for the organization would
have to sign off on the transfer and, if that


didn't happen, UF could conceivably replace
board members when they step down over
time with new ones favorable to the idea.
Another idea proposed by the unions is
using the university's own unrestricted as-
sets, which totaled about $80 million in 2008,
to prevent layoffs. UF officials have stated the
university cannot use some of that money be-
cause they are required by state law to keep a
certain amount in reserves. As it stands, how-
ever, UF is only required to notify the Board
of Governors, which oversees the state's 11
public universities, when reserves dip below
a certain amount.
But Fajack said even if the state doesn't
require it, he still thinks it's good fiscal policy
to have healthy reserves in case of emergen-
cies- if the state withdrew funding mid-year,
for example.
"The state could hold ($80 million) back in
a minute," he said.
And, even in the best case scenario, he said
using the money to prevent layoffs probably
wouldn't help faculty much in lean budget
times like this.
"We don't lay them off this year, but we
lay them off next year, and then our reserves
are completely gone," he said.

UF BASEBALL

Den Dekker carries leadoff success into 'Bama games


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

Junior center fielder Matt den
Dekker had been a do-it-all player
in his first two seasons at UF, but
coach Kevin O'Sullivan has man-
aged to find new ways for the pre-
season All-American to make an
impact on the team.
O'Sullivan moved den Dekker
into the leadoff spot in the batting
order on March 18 against Central
Florida, and the junior will remain
the table setter tonight in UF's (15-
8, 3-3 Southeastern Conference)
6:30 matchup with Alabama (16-7,
3-3 SEC).
"Moving him to the leadoff spot
has consciously changed his ap-


proach to using the whole field,"
O'Sullivan said.
Den Dekker has had a hit in
each of his games since moving to
the top of the lineup and is hitting
.400 while setting the pace for the
Gators' offense.
Although leadoff hitters are
usually only thought of as speedy
singles hitters, den Dekker, who
leads the team with five stolen bas-
es and has yet to get caught steal-
ing, still provides power.
The outfielder leads the team
with four home runs, and his .536
slugging percentage is second to
senior Avery Barnes, who, ironi-
cally, started the season as the
team's leadoff hitter.
Twice in the last week, den
Dekker has taken an opposing


left-handed pitcher deep over the
right-field wall in close games.
"He's been more aggressive, not
taking pitches in hitter's counts,"
junior catcher
Buddy Munroe
said.
UF will need
all the offen-
sive production
den Dekker can
muster with the
den Dekker Crimson Tide
coming to town
for a weekend series.
Alabama is averaging just fewer
than 10 runs per game and show-
cases one of the best hitters in the
nation. Senior outfielder Kent Mat-
thes comes into tonight's game hit-
ting .424 with a .500 on-base per-


centage, but his power numbers
are startling.
The senior is slugging 1.059
with 41 RBIs and 15 home runs,
matching the total for UF's entire
team.
Matthes is far from the only
offensive talent on the Crimson
Tide's roster, and O'Sullivan isn't
counting on any weak spots in its
lineup.
"Probably their best attribute is
they got an older club," O'Sullivan
said. "They've got veterans all
over the field and on the pitching
side of things.
"They're very well-balanced,
they're very well-coached, and
they have a confident swagger
about them."
Junior Jeff Barfield (2-0, 1.17


ERA) will get the start for the
Gators tonight and attempt to set
the tone for the rest of the series.
Barfield was thought to be the
leading candidate for the closer's
role before the season started, but
has emerged as UF's most depend-
able starter.
"I expected him to be good, but
I don't know if you ever expect
people to be as good as they are
or as bad as they are," O'Sullivan
said. "But the one thing he is, he's
a competitor."
Munroe said the right-hander
had a rough fall on the mound,
but his hard-breaking slider has
helped him turn it around.
"He wasn't exactly lights out,"
Munroe. "He's turned it on and
been really good for us."


Demps to make track debut at Florida State Relays


* HE ALSO PLAYS RUNNING BACK
FOR THE FOOTBALL TEAM.

By TONI-ANN MILLER
Alligator Writer

This weekend, when the UF men's track
and field team competes for the first time
since its second-place finish in the NCAA
Indoor Championships on March 14, there
will be a new yet familiar face looking to
contribute on the track for UF: Jeff Demps.
The Gators traveled to Tallahassee to
start the Florida State Relays on Thursday
with Demps as the newest addition to an al-
ready excellent squad.
Demps, who plays running back on the


football team, began practicing with the
track team on March 17 and has impressed
coach Mike Holloway with his work ethic.
"He's been fine, he's been awesome, he's
Jeff Demps," Holloway said. "He shows up
every day, he's a great guy (and) does every-
thing you ask him to do.
"The big thing with Jeff is I have to be
careful not to let him do too much because
he'll just go all day if I let him."
Demps will make his much-anticipated
debut Saturday, competing in the 4x100-me-
ter relay and possibly the 100-meter dash,
Holloway said.
When Demps takes the track, all eyes will
be on him to see if he lives up to the pre-
season expectations placed on him after he
ran a 10.01-second 100-meter dash during


the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials.
Demps didn't make the Olympic team,
but he received loads of media attention for
his effort.
Prior to this season, Demps
was named one of the Top 12
U.S. Sprinters/Hurdlers to
Watch in 2009 by TrackShark,
MVen'S largely due to his 100-meter
Track performance. Joining Demps
on the list were accomplished
Olympic sprinters Walter Dix, Tyson Gay,
Sanya Richards and Allyson Felix.
Holloway said the addition of Demps
will certainly make the Gators better, but it
will not affect the team's weekly preparation
for meets.
"The process doesn't change here. Our


goal is to be better weekly. We have to keep
everybody focused on the Gators," Hollo-
way said. "Jeff's gonna help this team, he's
gonna run well, and he's gonna help our re-
lay run well."
As Demps laces up his track cleats, he
will not only look to live up to the hype sur-
rounding him, he also will look to help UF's
men kick off their outdoor season and reach
the standard Holloway has set for them.
"We've been training pretty hard for the
last couple weeks," Holloway said. "Our
goal is simply to go up there and get the rust
of indoor off.
"We're not expecting to go up there and
set the world on fire, but we're expecting
everybody to go up there and be very com-
petitive."


Close game against Tennessee provided warm-up for Alabama, postseason


SOFT, from page 22

"I'm looking forward to winning,
but that's going to be a hard chal-
lenge. They're a great team," Walton
said.
"I don't think you're going to
find any 1-0 ballgames out here next
week. It has the potential to be a slug-
fest, and we're going to have to do a
good job of coming out and swinging
the bat as well."
A higher-scoring game will cer-
tainly work in the Gators' favor. The
team won the season series 2-1 last
year, with UF's victories coming by
scores of 8-4 and 4-1, the latter bring-
ing home the Gators' first SEC Cham-
pionship.
If the Gators want to continue
their dominance over the top teams
in the SEC, they will need to put up
the kind of scores they did against
Georgia (15-0 and 4-0 wins on March
11) and Tennessee (7-0, 7-0 and 4-1
victories last weekend).
After posting shutouts in the
previous eight conference games,
Gardiner said UF's comeback win
against Tennessee on Sunday pro-
vided a challenge similar to the one
they will face this weekend.


"It makes us more prepared for
games like that in the postseason,
too," the senior first baseman said.
"That's what the postseason's all
about.
"People are going to bring their A
game for possibly that last game of
the season for them. That really helps
us for Alabama and down the road."
Despite starting out slow against
Tennessee pitcher Cat
SHosfield on Sunday,
UF's hitters were able
to make adjustments at
Softball the plate during their
second and third at-
bats. He hopes his play-
ers are able to mirror that success
against Alabama's ace, Kelsi Dunne
(12-0, 0.56 ERA), and backups Char-
lotte Morgan (8-4, 1.95) who also
leads the team in RBIs and Aman-
da Locke (6-0, 1.91).
"I don't think we do much dif-
ferent (than we did last weekend),"
Walton said.
"I think we just do the same
things we do, just try to break down
their pitchers if we can and try to put
ourselves in a position where we can
handle all three of their pitchers as
opposed to getting caught up in just
one."

Disappointing season leaves questions for future
By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

For what most considered to be a meaningless game dur-
ing the middle of the NCAA Tournament, the scene in the UF
locker room looked like it was anything but.
Reporters crowded around players with hung heads as they
tried to put their disappointment into words.
After being ranked No. 19 at the start of the season, the
Gators' tumultuous season came to an end Tuesday night with
a 71-62 loss to Penn State in the quarterfinals of the National
Invitation Tournament.
UF (25-11) finished its second straight sea-
,son without making it to the NCAA Tourna-
ment and failed to make a return to Madison
Square Garden and the NIT semifinals like it
Men's did a year ago.
Basketball It was a far cry from the turnaround year
the team predicted in October.
A little more than a year ago, Dan Werner
sat in a dimly lit locker room in The World's Most Famous Are-
na and watched as teammates and coaches shook their heads
and promised next year would be different.
The scene this year was almost identical.
"I'm just as confused as anybody," he said. "Coach built this
as one of the top programs in the country, and unfortunately
these last two years we took it down a couple of steps."
The game might as well have been a mirror image of the
Gators' season. Their goal was well within reach. A win against
the banged-up and offensively challenged Nittany Lions would
have punched their ticket to New York.
It wasn't the ideal end to the season UF became the
first team since Michigan State in 1981 to not make the NCAA Andrew Stanfill/ Alligator Staff
Tournament in consecutive years after winning the national UF forward Dan Werner looks at the floor between reporters' questions after the Gators' 71-62 National Invitation

UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

Bar set high after '08-'09


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

Preseason predictions usually result in
meaningless blather.
In this case, however, the Gators' pre-
season motto rang true.
UF (24-8) was indeed "Bigger and Bet-
ter" a year after it reached the Women's
National Invitation Tournament, just as its
coach and media guide had promised.
"It says a lot about this team when you
can talk about things like that in Septem-
ber, in October, and then back it up," UF
coach Amanda Butler said. "That was a
great way for us to start the season by
projecting big things and that's the only
way that you achieve great things is to set
those expectations high at the beginning."
The Gators' appearance in the NCAA
Tournament in Butler's second year would
likely have been refreshing enough for this
team.
Getting a first-round win and advanc-
ing to the second round was more than sat-


isfying, considering how far UF has come
so quickly.
Now the standard has been set.
"I told our seniors and our whole group
collectively after we lost the other night
that as disappointed as we felt right now,
the big picture was that this collection of
women that we have
in the room right here
that we will never
have together again like
this set the standard
for the future of this
program," Butler said.
"There's no question
Butler we'll be disappointed
every year if there's
anything less than postseason play in the
NCAA Tournament."
This was a record-breaking season for
UF, highlighted by exceeding outside ex-
pectations.
But if you ask the players and coaches,
they'll tell you they believed there was no
limit on how far they could go.

Gators roll into Tide series


* NO. 1 UF WILL FACE NO. 4
ALABAMA FOR A 3-GAME SET.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

It's no secret that the Gators softball
team has been looking forward to this
weekend since the season started.
In the team's media guide, senior
first baseman Ali Gardiner said UF's
series against Alabama was her most
anticipated matchup of the year.
No. 1 UF (32-2, 11-0 Southeastern
Conference) will take on No. 4 Alabama
(26-4, 6-2 SEC) this weekend in a three-
game home series, starting Saturday at
1 p.m.
Last week, Alabama was ranked


No. 2 in the country, and had the team
not lost twice to No. 17 LSU last week-
end, this weekend would have pitted
the top two teams in the nation against
each other for the first time ever.
But when it comes to facing the
Tide, the rankings don't matter to the
Gators.
"Alabama's always been a tough
competitor, and I think we're all really
excited," Gardiner said.
"We've been looking forward to it
for a long time, but now it's here and
we're ready to go."
UF coach Tim Walton also expressed
his excitement for this weekend's con-
ference showdown, adding how impor-
tant it will be for the Gators to come out
with energy early in the game.

Georgetown transfer Macklin, incoming Boynton could spark team


HOOPS, from page 22

title but it would have salvaged a little bit
of pride.
Instead, UF crumbled under the weight of
expectations and played one of its sloppiest
games of the season.
"I went to college wanting to make the
NCAA Tournament every year," Wemer said.
"Obviously, we have a lot of work to do. This
is two years in a row we're in the NIT, and this
isn't where Coach built the program to be."

War of Attrition
The Gators probably should have known
they were in trouble when seldom-used walk-
on Kyle McClanahan entered the game early
in the first half.
But it's not like UF coach Billy Donovan
had much of a choice. Injuries had UF practi-
cally limping into the postseason. UF started
the year with 12 scholarship players and what
looked like a team deep enough to make it
through Southeastern Conference play.
The early-season transfer of sophomore
point guard and former McDonald's All-
American Jai Lucas to Texas was a big blow.
Without Lucas, 5-foot-8 guard Erving
Walker was forced to play major minutes.
And although the freshman played well
this season, the Gators were sorely lacking
the leadership and late-game shooting Lucas
could have given them.
Adam Allen, Eloy Vargas and Allan
Chaney all missed significant time with inju-
ries this year, crippling an already depleted
lineup, and it didn't help that center Kenny


Kadji was ruled out during the NIT with a
concussion. By the time Penn State came to
town, Donovan was working with an eight-
man rotation.
The Gators took their biggest hit inside,
where Wemer and sophomore center Alex
Tyus a more natural power forward -
were forced to play out of position all year.
"You've got to play with what you've got,"
Wemer said. "You can't complain because
guys are undersized or playing out of position.
We are what we are. We just tried to make the
best out of it."

Calathes Can't Do It All
The largest swarm of reporters in the post-
game locker room was huddled around All-
SEC point guard Nick Calathes as he dodged
questions about a potential jump to the NBA.
"I'm not really thinking about that right
now," Calathes said. "But when it's time, I'll
sit down with Coach and my family and de-
cide from there."
Calathes set a single-season school record
with 231 assists and scored 618 points this
year, the fifth-highest single-season total in
school history.
A month ago, Calathes looked like a lock
for the first round of the NBA Draft. But after
struggling late in the season and failing to get
UF back to the NCAA Tournament, his draft
stock has taken a substantial hit.
Several draft Web sites have pushed Cal-
athes out of the guaranteed money of the first
round and into the second.
"I have no idea (about) any of those things,"
Donovan said. "I'm supportive of Nick. Cer-
tainly we would love to have him back here,


and I would love to coach him again."

Couldn't Finish
With 2:10 left in the game, UF cut a 10-point
Penn State lead to 61-59.
But as they have done all year, the Gators
managed to pull defeat from the jaws of vic-
tory. The Nittany Lions scored two baskets
and went 6 for 6 from the free-throw line in
game's final minute.
It was a characteristic collapse for a team
that had five losses by 3 points or fewer this
season, including Zam Fredrick's heartbreak-
ing buzzer beater after a total defensive break-
down at South Carolina and a 2-point embar-
rassment against SEC cellar dweller Georgia.
In a lot of ways, UF finished its season the
same way it finished games.
They started strong, jumping out to an 18-2
record on the back of one of the nation's weak-
est non-conference schedules, and then pro-
ceeded to lose seven of their last 12 games on
their way to missing the NCAA Tournament.
"I was sad," Hodge said. "I knew we were
not going to make it after that loss (to Auburn
in the SEC Tournament)."
UF was 2-7 on the road this year and 2-6
away from home in conference games.
The Gators searched for a go-to guy
in crunch time all season, but no one ever
emerged. Calathes showed that he might have
been the guy after his game-winning shot
against North Carolina State on Jan. 3.
But the sophomore deferred to teammates
in similar situations during conference play,
sometimes even passing up open shots. Walk-
er struggled to make shots and was blocked
several times in late-game situations.


What Now?
Amid a sea of frustration, the name buzz-
ing around the locker room was that of a guy
who didn't even play.
In fact, he hadn't all season.
Vernon Macklin, the 6-foot-10 Georgetown
transfer, had suddenly become a beacon of
hope for the UF basketball program.
"I think it's very, very unfair for Vernon
going into next year that people think that he's
a dominant (player)," Donovan said. "He's
not. He's a good player. He's got a long, long
way to go."
Macklin averaged 3.4 points and 2.1 re-
bounds per game in 2007-08 at Georgetown.
The Gators should also get a boost from
6-foot-2 super recruit Kenny Boynton.
Boynton averaged 34.5 points per game as
a junior at Plantation American Heritage High
and chose UF over Duke and Texas.
"What kind of impact do they make? I
don't know," Donovan said. "I think they're
going to be good players. There's certainly
some pieces we need to add, a different ele-
ment we need to add, there's no question."
With the addition of Boynton, fellow recruit
6-foot-10 forward Erik Murphy and 6-foot-9
forward DeShawn Painter, UF would be over
the NCAA maximum of 13 scholarships.
The Gators found themselves in a similar
situation last season before Marreese Speights
entered the NBA draft and Jonathan Mitchell
opted to transfer to Rutgers.
If Calathes elects to return to Gainesville
for his junior season, a transfer from one of the
team's current members would be inevitable.
Vargas, Allen and Chaney are likely tar-
gets.

SEASON, from page 22

The Gators were even a little bit
disappointed when they found out
they were only given a No. 8 seed in
the tournament.
"It may seem silly to talk about
it now that we think we were good
enough to be playing in that nation-
al championship game, but we fully
believed it," Butler said. "That's the
first step to making something spe-
cial happen. You've got to believe it
with your whole heart."
The Gators dropped their sea-
son opener at Florida Gulf Coast,
and that may have been the turning


point in their season.
UF responded with a school-
record 15 straight wins, including
victories over three ranked non-con-
ference teams.
They didn't slow down once
Southeastern Conference play be-
gan. UF, picked to finish sixth in the
conference before the season, started
8-1 in league play and capped off
its school-record, seven-game SEC
winning streak with a home vic-
tory over powerhouse Tennessee in
front of the second-largest crowd in
school history.
The marquee victory marked just
the third time ever the Gators had


1642 W. UiestAv. 1 5.37.96


knocked off the Volunteers, and it
propelled UF to a fourth-place finish
in the SEC.
While UF struggled down the
stretch, losing five of its last six
games in the regular season and
SEC Tournament
S to some of its
stiffest competi-
tion, the Gators
Women's still managed to
tie the 1994-95 UF
Basketball team for the most
wins in a season.
Two players on this squad, Sha
Brooks and Marshae Dotson, left a
permanent mark on the program in

their senior years. Both were named
unanimous First Team All-SEC se-
lections by SEC coaches.
For a duo that experienced a
nine-win season not too long ago,
this year was like finishing on top.
"We did a lot this year," Dotson
said. "Coming from my sophomore
year, we were 9-22 to 24-8. I think
that's a helluva difference. It's a lot
better than where we started."
Brooks added: "It means that our
team improved so much. We grew
up together. We went through the
rough days together. The not-so-
good season from being 9-22, and

came in, and it's like everybody just
believed in what she was teaching
and everybody worked hard for her,
and that's how we got to where we
are now."
Butler appreciated what those
two seniors did in their time in
Gainesville.
"They left a tremendous legacy
here and had senior seasons in par-
ticular that they really deserved,"
Butler said. "They set a very high
standard of expectation. It's going
to be impossible to replace those
guys."
Even so, Butler's expectations
will be even higher next season.
