Sorority faces



hazing claims


* GROUP FACES FIVE-
YEAR SUSPENSION.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

UF sorority Sigma Lambda
Gamma, an 18-member Latina-
based group, has been shut
down for five years by its na-
tional organization for hazing
activities that included push-
ups and restrictions on Face-
book usage.
UF's Greek Judicial Board,
now the Greek Conduct Com-
mittee, also recommended a
one one-year suspension fol-
lowed by one year of probation
in February. Paige Crandall,
UF's interim dean of students,
approved the recommenda-
tions on March 20.
UF's sanctions are basically
irrelevant, though, said Chris
Loschiavo, director of UF's
Student Conduct and Conflict
Resolution.


Under the national orga-
nization's decision, which re-
voked the chapter's charter,
it will be at least 2014 before a
new chapter of the sorority can
be formed on the UF campus,
Loschiavio said.
"We will work though
every consequence
that we were given."
Danielle Pechac
former chapter president

According to UF records,
the hazing occurred last fall
as part of a program for new
members.
The recruits had to follow a
list of 37 rules, a report from the
judicial board stated, "which
include no make-up, fast food,
Facebook, no shortcuts such
as elevators or cutting through
grass, and must have permis-
sion to go someplace other than
where they are supposed to

Machen supports raising standards for scholarships


By TATIANA GONZALEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF President Bernie Machen stressed the
importance of raising the academic standards
for the Bright Futures Scholarship and imple-
menting new state taxes for education during
a town hall forum hosted by IRHA, the Inter-
Residence Hall Association, for on-campus


residents Thursday night.
Machen said increasing taxes would help
the state tremendously, citing the $1 cigarette
tax being disputed in Tallahassee that would
raise more than $800 million in a year.
"We're not over-taxed," Machen said to
the group of about 30 people who gathered for
the question-and-answer session inside Yulee
Hall's lounge. "We're under-resourced."


Skeet Surrency, a UF organic and sustain- ition increases and said, if it were up to him,


able crop production senior, asked Machen if
he would sign a petition asking for a one-cent
increase to Florida's sales tax to help fund
education.
"I'll sign it" Machen said.
Surrency said Machen will likely sign the
petition publicly next week.
During the forum Machen defended tu-


he'd make anyone pay tuition who could af-
ford it.
"Bright Futures does not allow true excel-
lence to be awarded," said Machen, adding
he believes the scholarship is heavily flawed
and should take into account need-based

Santa Fe College remains optimistic despite economy


By JENA ADDISON
Alligator Contributing Writer

It's not often that meetings de-
signed to address college budget
cuts have audience members feeling
more like they're in the middle of a
teen musical.


"We have a really different ap-
proach to budget cuts here," joked
Dr. Jackson Sasser, the president
of Santa Fe College, after students
from the Fine Arts Department per-
formed a rendition of "We're All
in This Together" from the movie
"High School Musical" on Thursday


afternoon.
A standing ovation was received
for the high-energy
Santa Fe routine. It was per-
College formed by about 60
students in front of a
packed gymnasium.
"I wanted you to see that because,


as bad as the budget is, we have joy
here," Sasser said. "And we're not
going to let what we're facing take
that joy away."
Although the Florida Legislature
is still in session and tuition costs for
the coming year have not been final-
ized, he estimates the college will be


out about $500,000, even with a con-
servative budget.
In order to compensate for the
money the school needs, Sasser
urged faculty and staff to help the
college by reducing health insur-

Critics assail Afghan marital rape law
KABUL (AP) A new Afghan law makes it
legal for men to rape their wives, human rights
groups and some Afghan lawmakers said Thurs-
day, accusing President Hamid Karzai of signing
the legislation to bolster his re-election prospects.
Critics worry the legislation undermines hard-won
rights for women enacted after the fall of the Tali-
ban's strict Islamist regime.
The law which some lawmakers say was
never debated in parliament is intended to regu-
late family life inside Afghanistan's Shiite com-


munity, which makes up about 20 percent of this
country of 30 million people. The law does not af-
fect Afghan Sunnis. One of the most controversial
articles stipulates the wife "is bound to preen for
her husband as and when he desires."
"As long as the husband is not traveling, he has
the right to have sexual intercourse with his wife
every fourth night," Article 132 of the law says.
"Unless the wife is ill or has any kind of illness that
intercourse could aggravate, the wife is bound to
give a positive response to the sexual desires of her
husband."

Library hosts author to speak on Katrina disaster


By ALEX CHACHKEVITCH
Alligator Contributing Writer

It wasn't the smell of feces and
urine from the overflowing toilets
or the 95-degree ovenlike surround-
ings that bothered Paul Harris the
most, but the power of fear.
Harris, author of "Diary From
The Dome: Reflections on Fear and
Privilege During Katrina," discussed
his experience of being trapped in
the New Orleans Superdome dur-
ing Hurricane Katrina to an audi-
ence of about 70 at Smathers Library
Thursday.


Harris, now a retired staff mem-
ber from the University of California
at San Diego, arrived at New Or-
leans with tourism in mind. Instead,
he was forced to seek refuge in the
Superdome with about 20,000 other
evacuees three days after his arrival,
when Katrina hit.
He said although the refugees,
most of them families, received
good meals and protection from the
storm, they were put in the most un-
sanitary conditions he'd ever seen.
He said people grew frustrated
and angry after a few days without
air conditioning. Some began break-

She said they were discussing New

Program turns old phones into calling cards for soldiers


* THE OFFICE HOPES TO COLLECT
7,500 CELL PHONES BY JULY 4.

BY CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Contributing Writer

For once, the Alachua County Tax Collec-
tor's Office does not want money.
It wants old cell phones.
The office has already collected 6,876 cell
phones from county residents for Cell Phones
for Soldiers, a national organization that uses
money raised from recycled cell phones to
buy calling cards for American troops sta-


tioned overseas.
The office hopes to collect 7,500 cell phones
by July 4.
Stephanie Kelley, the director of human re-
sources at the Alachua County Tax Collector's
Office, heard about the program on National
Public Radio.
After discovering that Gainesville had no
collection centers for recycled cell phones,
Kelley asked Alachua County Tax Collector
Von Fraser if the county's three tax collector
offices could be used as collection locations.
The collection program kicked off in February
2006.
The phones are shipped to a recycling
company, and the company sends the money


from recycling the phones to Cell Phones for
Soldiers.
The program then uses the money to buy
calling cards. Each recycled phone provides
an hour of talk time, according to the pro-
gram's Web site.
Around Kelley said she be-
Gainesville lieves that anybody who
goes overseas should be
able to call home.
Roxanne Watkins, the director of the
downtown branch of the Alachua County
Tax Collector's Office, has a son serving as a
sergeant in the Marines in Iraq.
Watkins helps get the calling cards from
Cell Phones for Soldiers and, alongside the


Military Support Group of Alachua County,
places them in care packages for troops.
The support group is in charge of mailing
the care packages to the soldiers.
Watkins said the program is a community
effort, which includes Alachua County and
surrounding counties like Clay County.
She said returning troops come to the Mili-
tary Support Group's meetings and comment
about the care packages and phone cards. The
troops have generally expressed appreciation
for the service.
"We get a lot of positive feedback," she
said. "That's why we continue to do it be-
cause we want to continue to touch the lives
of all of the troops."

UF law prof joins commission


By TARA MEYER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Persistence is the word a UF law
professor lives by, and he said it
earned him a seat on a Florida ap-
pointing commission.
Jon Mills was notified in March
by Sen. Bill Nelson's office about
his seat on the Florida Judicial
Nominating Commission.
"I think it's an important as-
signment to review federal judge
appointments since they play an
important part in our lives," Mills
said.
The Commission consists of 56
members that review and give rec-
ommendations of candidates who
will serve as the U.S. District Court
judges, U.S. marshals and U.S. at-
torneys in Florida, Mills said.
The Commission's duties also
include providing the governor
with possible appointments to state
appellate courts.
Mills will join 12 other UF law


graduates on the Commission. He
is also a UF alumnus, dean emeri-
tus, former Florida Speaker of the
House and founding director of the
Center for Governmental Respon-
sibility.
"Any time you get the
chance to work in public
service, it should be
savored and enjoyed."
Jon Mills
UF law professor

"I look forward to working with
other members in the committee,
along with having the chance to
help make decisions by our sena-
tors and President Obama," Mills
said.
Growing up, Mills found in-
spiration in historical figures like
Winston Churchill and Abraham
Lincoln because they had to make
tough decisions during difficult
times.

"I think they are the type of
people that young people can learn
a lot from in their lives," Mills said.
"They have an important charac-
teristic, which is perseverance."
Despite his achievements, Mills
has encountered challenges in
reaching his goals in life, but he de-
scribes the challenges as defining
moments that inspired his career.
Besides contributing to the law
community, Mills currently de-
votes his time to helping his daugh-
ters, Marguerite, 14, and Elizabeth,
9, play volleyball.
He was never a volleyball play-
er himself, but he spends about 10
hours a week helping the girls with
their game.
"I am a volleyball dad," Mills
said.
Although unsure where future
plans will take him, Mills said they
will definitely involve working in
public service.
"Any time you get the chance to
work in public service, it should be
savored and enjoyed," he said.

Man arrested for


battery, cocaine

A Gainesville man was arrested early Wednesday morning in
connection with hitting an officer and swallowing crack cocaine.
At about 2 a.m., Gainesville Police Officer John Pandak stopped
a man near 1100 N.W. Fifth Ave. while he was walking, the GPD
arrest report stated.
Because Pandak recognized the man, Eugene Knight, 19, as a
narcotics offender, he asked Knight to open his mouth to check
for cocaine.
L l When Pandak grabbed Knight's arm to get a
NoW better look, Knight swung his other arm at Pan-
s dak, hitting him in the head.
According to the report, the defendant was
"placed" on the ground, where he continued to thrash. Pandak at-
tempted to remove the cocaine from Knight's mouth while hand-
cuffing him. Then Knight swallowed the cocaine to destroy the
evidence, the report stated.
Knight told the officer he was "smoking dirty," lacing a ciga-
rette or marijuana cigarette with cocaine, the report stated.
Knight was charged with resisting an officer with violence,
tampering with evidence and possessing a controlled substance.

Editorial
W ith final exams and project deadlines just around the
bend, the Department of Darts & Laurels officially de-
V clares this weekend the one last hurrah of the spring
semester.
So get your drinking boots on and saddle up for two glorious
evenings of debauchery while imagining that we call West Hol-
lywood home rather than North Central Florida. Whether your
latest flavor of the month tastes like the grittiness of Gator City
or the sophistication of Sharab, just keep in mind the oh-so sexy
demands of academia will soon be whispering your name.
Before we head to the Oaks Mall to score the freshest in Af-
fliction gear, we proudly present you this week's make-sure-to-
keep-your-BAC-below-your-GPA-while-raging edition of...



Darts & Laurels

Word out of London reveals controversy beyond Michelle
Obama's horrifying decision to touch Queen Elizabeth on her
back. For breaking into a branch of the Royal Bank of Scotland
and smashing windows, the Department of Darts & Laurels
hurls a you-guys-lost-any-hint-of-credibility-the-second-you-
started-destroying-property DART at the G-20 summit protest-
ers. We completely support the right to voice his or her opinion
in a public forum, but please don't go and take such freedoms
for granted by channeling your inner anarchist.
For one New Jersey man unable to quench his thirst for
Hennessy cognac, the second best option was letting out a cry.
The Department of Darts & Laurels presents a we-can-safely-
assume-you-listen-to-Yanni-while-taking-bubble-baths LAU-
REL to Edwin Calix for showing his sensitive side after being
arrested for attempting to rob a liquor store. There's nothing
wrong with a grown man shedding a few tears. Hell, we know
a certain 22-year-old graduate student who's returned to work
misty-eyed after watching an episode of "Gossip Girl."
Giving an entirely new meaning to the question "so what
kind of car do you drive?" one man's utterly unique mode of
transportation has left him facing the wrath of the long arm of
the law. For crashing his motorized bar stool after consuming
15 beers, the Department of Darts & Laurels chucks a you're-
an-idiot-but-when-the-trial-is-over-can-you-build-us-one?
DART at Kile Wygle. It doesn't matter if you're driving a car
or a glorified lawn mower driving drunk remains completely
inexcusable.
A casual conversation involving "Olympics" typically con-
jures imagery of world-class athletes not exactly Kevin from
"The Office." The Department of Darts & Laurels extends a
what-a-truly-novel-approach-to-lighten-a-miserable-situation
LAUREL to the creators of the Unemployment Olympics for
providing an event in which jobless New Yorkers could blow
off some steam with like-minded folks. With games like "pin

safely assume the event was a roaring success for all involved.
The latest in the rat saga currently occupying the minds of UF
students everywhere reveals a turn for the worst. For spreading
fear throughout the newsroom and making a meal out of our
beloved keyboards, the Department of Darts & Laurels tosses
a the-only-cool-rat-was-Splinter-from-Teenage-Mutant-Ninja-
Turtles DART at the Alligator rats. We can only imagine com-
ing back to work on Sunday to find the entire building in sham-
bles after the rats learned word of our unwillingness to coexist.
We can't verify, but we're pretty sure there were construc-
tion worker rats (on strike nonetheless!) in an episode of "Doug"
that were pretty sweet too.
Health nuts argue that organic cereal is a great alternative
to sugary offerings like Captain Crunch but when was the
last time the ol' Captain made phone sex happen? The Depart-
ment of Darts & Laurels awards an excuse-us-while-we-hit-up-
Mother-Earth-to-buy-a-box LAUREL to Peace Cereal for put-
ting children everywhere on the fast track to puberty thanks to
an oversight printed on their boxes. Nothing like one incorrect
digit in the company's 800 number resulting in a sexy voice in-
quiring if the caller loves sex.
You can safely assume what we'll be eating for breakfast
from now on. That's all for this week. Enjoy the weather.

Crist shouldn't cut
When one thinks of the Everglades they tend to
conjure imagery of nothing but giant swamps
unappealing and, honestly, a bit of a waste
of space.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Among other things, the Everglades are a designated
World Heritage Site, a haven for rare and endangered
species and one of the few places in the world where one
can see the stunning ghost lily.
Right, enough with the environmentalist pitch. Well I
only urge all of you to go out and see the Everglades be-
cause the way things are looking, the opportunity may be
gone some day.
Apparently, the economic crisis, which has been so
much fun for all of us which has lead to such fantastic
pop-culture memes as Rock Santelli's Wall Street popu-
lism howl and Jon Stewart giving a healthy dose of fear,
trembling and sickness unto Jim Cramer has claimed
another victim.
On Wednesday, Gov. Charlie Crist announced that,
due to budgetary problems, Florida's long-overdue plan
to buy 182,000 acres of Everglades land from the United
States Sugar Corporation will be significantly scaled back.
Instead, less than 73,000 acres will be purchased less
than half of the specified amount in the original propos-
al.
Don't think I don't see where the state is coming from.
With people losing their jobs, we have to save money
where we can. It's just something of a shame.
This is actually the second time the plan has been scaled
back, and I'm not optimistic that there won't be more.
Things are looking bleak for the Everglades. Already
under siege from industrial developers and environ-
mental problems, the land has lately fallen victim to a

I've always known about but so seldom had any interest
in. It makes me wonder, as well, what will be next. Maybe
the upkeep of Yellowstone will get too expensive. Maybe
filling up the Grand Canyon will be the government's
next shovel-ready project.
I feel the urge to get out and see these places while I
have the chance. Ah, if only it weren't for finals.
There's a fantastic exhibit at the Florida Museum of
Natural History that you should check out if you want
to get a feel for the real beauty and majesty that the Ever-

It consists of a series of large black and white photos
by a talented photog named Clyde Butcher, and a series
of color prints by his protege, Jeff Ripple. Both men are ex-
tremely talented and capture the serenity of the unspoiled
parts of this increasingly spoiled landscape. There's an-
other section where you can learn about the things threat-

Legalized pot not so problematic
Before we legalize pot, if we were op-
posed to it, we should definitely write an
article with a plethora of construed facts
that have nothing to do with marijuana at
all.
I would not equate the legalization of the
least toxic psychoactive substance known
to man with providing unstable countries
with the means to destroy the free world. In
addition, letting everyone carry guns also
has nothing to do with the issue.
Anyone in the U.S. that wants to carry a
gun legally can get a permit to do so. All of
the criminals will carry their guns regard-
less of the laws in order to carjack, rob,
murder and rape the law-abiding citizens.
This is why the good citizens have the right
to bear arms and obtain a concealed weap-
ons permit.
Back to the real issue here, marijuana.
If we legalized pot, people's interest in
smoking the substance would probably
decline. Only a minor percentage of high
school students in Amsterdam, where
weed is essentially legal, have reported try-
ing it as opposed to the 20 percent or more
of American high students.
I'm not saying everyone should smoke
pot. The fact is, some people, like Gary
Colon's father, cannot handle smoking
pot in addition to their other responsibili-
ties. Then again, some people can't handle
drinking alcohol, but that's perfectly legal.
As for marijuana leading to other drugs for
his father, maybe he should blame alcohol.
He, like the majority of Americans, prob-
ably had his first intoxicated experience
with alcohol, not weed. Marijuana being le-
gal would not increase its use, cause harm
or make it easier to obtain for adolescents.
Ask any kid under 21 what's easier to get,
weed or liquor, and they'll say weed.


Drug dealers don't check IDs.
Perhaps Colon should talk to t
have depression, cancer, AIDS a
debilitating diseases who use it
cine, or those who prefer its rela
ings over drunken nights of fight
iting, sex with strangers, memory
of course, epic hangovers.

pletely irrelevant to the real world where
there are innumerable issues that force peo-
ple into poverty.
Furthermore, the fact that the struggles
low-income families face every day as they
try to make ends meet is compared to such
a minor issue as grades is belittling and de-
meaning.
Weak metaphors aside, the real question
that we, Lott in particular, have to ask our-
selves is whether the fact that some people
possess a higher level of knowledge and
skills than others justifies the enormous
disparities in wealth in America.
If someone works hard their whole
life and becomes a billionaire, does that
mean that they are entitled to keep most
of it since they worked hard? Does it mean
that they are therefore entitled to own five
houses and their own private island since
they worked hard?
If, on the other hand, I was not able to
get an adequate education and I am forced
to work a minimum wage job, does that
mean that I should be so poor that my chil-
dren are unable to get an adequate educa-
tion even though I worked hard?
Does it mean that they shouldn't have
access to adequate health care when they
get sick even though I worked hard?
Does it mean that they should be forced
to skip meals or go to bed hungry every
night even though I worked hard?
Does it mean that my family and I should
be forced to live in substandard housing
even though I worked hard?
A progressive tax system is not designed
to make everyone equal. It is meant to en-
sure that all Americans, regardless of their
circumstances, have access to decent hous-
ing, food, education and health care.

Groups sponsor talk on women in Islam


Dr. Jamillah Karim speaks about gender equality in Islam at the Touchdown
Terrace at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Thursday night.


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer
Right after sunset, 14 students kneeled in the di-
rection of Mecca on the floor of Touchdown Terrace
at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium Thursday night to take
part in prayer before Jamillah Karim took the po-
dium to speak to a crowd of about 40 people.
Karim, who was brought by Islam on Campus
and Accent, lectured about a woman's role in the
Islam faith.
Karim became the first Muslim professor of re-
ligion at Spelman College, an all-girls liberal arts
school in Atlanta, Ga.
"I believe it has been divinely decided that I give
the talk I plan to give today," she said, adding she
had originally prepared a different lecture but was
driven by Allah to speak on something different.
To help illustrate her main points, she shared
stories of the different Muslim women who im-
pacted her life and shaped her ways of thinking.
She first shared the story of her
On mother, an African-American Muslim
Campus convert, who Karim said would try to
wash off the color of skin when she
was a child because she was ashamed
of its shade.
"She told us this to share the psychological im-
pact on racism but also to show how Islam healed
her," Karim said. "It broke the shackles in my mind
to show that black was beautiful."
Karim also compared the views the America
media and Muslim women have toward the hijab,
the headdress Muslim women wear.
She said while many American publications de-
pict Muslim women in passive poses, Muslim pub-
lications showcase more active women in the faith.
After Karim's 45-minute lecture, students had
a chance to ask her questions pertaining to current
events facing Islamic women, such as certain Islam-
ic nations who participate in female circumcision.
"The reality is that the Koran does not support
that," Karim said, adding there is a distinction be-
tween Islamic practice and cultural practices in Is-
lamic nations. "The reason why the two tend to be
confused is that Islam is a religion that is open to
cultures, so many cultural acts will continue."

Foreign correspondent details time spent in Africa


By HUNTER SIZEMORE

jhsizemore@alligator.org

Her driver would take her no
further; he felt crossing the sandy
riverbed that marked the border
of Chad and Sudan, nations of
central Africa, was for the fool-
hardy.
But Lydia Polgreen had to
meet her sources on the other
side, members of a rebel group
operating out of Sudan with the
goal of toppling Chad's govern-
ment.
As the West African bureau
chief for the New
On York Times, it was
Campus Polgreen's third or
fourth trip to the
area. She was piecing
together a fractured and complex
regional conflict and the rebels
were another shard of the story.
"One false step and you could
easily find yourself in a world of
trouble," she said to about 50 UF
professors and students Thurs-
day. Polgreen and her photog-
rapher crossed the riverbed on
foot to meet their rebel contact,
with whom neither shared a lan-
guage.
Wordlessly, they climbed onto
a truck overflowing with ma-
chine-gun-toting rebels.
"I sorta felt this little shiver of
unease and thought 'I don't know
about this'," she said. Sudanese
soldiers quickly caught the reb-

els, along with Polgreen and her
photographer, loaded them onto
another truck and took them to


the headquarters of a local secu-
rity chief. When Polgreen tried
to speak with her photographer,


a rebel guarding her tapped his
gun's trigger as a way of saying
"be quiet."


"'This is it' I thought, 'my luck
has run out'," she said.
She has been to mines policed
by militants in the Congo rain-
forest where barehanded work-
ers dig out metal for use in cell
phones and computers.
But her work isn't always
at personal risk. Recently, she
wrote about a plague of caterpil-
lars which gobbled up the crops
of Liberia.
When she finally met the Su-
danese security chief, Polgreen
was surprised.
Instead of throwing her into
jail, not an uncommon fate for
journalists in Sudan, he discussed
local politics with her at length in
broken English.
Afterwards, he gave Polgreen
a large meal and had soldiers
drop her back at the border.
Often, when a journalist finds the
answer that they've been search-
ing for at the "ends of the earth,"
it's not what they thought it was
going to be, she said.
"That's what happened to me
on the border of Chad and Su-
dan," she said.
Polgreen's talk was sponsored
by the Center for African Studies.
No fee was set but Leonardo Vil-
lal6n, the director of the center,
expects that she will be paid a
few hundred dollars to help with
travel expenses, he said.
She is in the United States pre-
paring for her new assignment in
India.

Shortage of nurses is blamed on poor pay, stress


The undergraduate nursing program is threatened by budget cuts


By LAUREN MARKS
Alligator Contributing Writer

At 11 p.m., registered nurse Alexis
Lynch gulps down a Dr Pepper and some
animal crackers to give her energy for the
16th hour of her shift on the pediatrics
floor at Shands at UF. She agreed to work
late even despite being scheduled to leave
at 7 p.m. because there were not enough
nurses to cover the shift.
The demand for nurses far outweighs
the supply on a national level, as well as
right here in Gainesville.
"We are definitely understaffed," Lynch
said. "I am called in almost every day that
I am off because they need me to work."
Ruth Thompson, a charge nurse at
Shands at UF, blames the nursing shortage
on a lack of resources and professors, as
well as the stress attributed to the job.
"The hospital says that it can't afford


to pay nurses overtime," she said. "And
there just aren't enough professors in the
college programs to teach students."
Practicing nurses are paid much more
than professors in the industry, Thompson
said.
"I would love to teach, but I just can't
take the pay cut," she said.
Tracy Wright, director of public rela-
tions and communications for the College
of Nursing at UF, said the budget cuts at
UF may be threatening the undergraduate
nursing program.
"We do not know the exact impact of
the cuts yet, but one proposal calls for
eliminating the undergraduate program
altogether," she said.
It is more likely that the college as a
whole will have to scale back, rather than
cutting entire programs, Wright said.
"The nursing program is very competi-
tive," she said. "We have limited resources


and clinical spaces."
Florida law limits the number of stu-
dents allowed to participate in clinicals,
which are direct observations of patients,
Wright said.

"I am called in almost every day
that I am off because they need
me to work."
Alexis Lynch
Registered nurse

Job burnout also appears to be a factor
in the nursing shortage.
The 12-hour-plus shifts were taxing on
Rita Toro, who said working in the neona-
tal intensive care unit was extremely de-
manding.
"A lot of nurses are leaving the field to
go to less stressful jobs at clinics, schools
and nursing homes," Toro said.


Toro retired from her job as a nurse at
North Florida Regional Medical Center
more than 10 years ago to open the bou-
tique Especially for Women located on
Newberry Road.
"I left nursing to open a business for
women diagnosed with breast cancer,"
Toro said. "It was more flexible for raising
children, and I wanted to start a family."
There were nurses who would go three
days without seeing their own children,
Toro said.
"I can't imagine what it would be like
to have this job and take care of a family,"
Lynch said.
Despite the stress and strain of working
on holidays, Lynch said she is happy she
chose a pediatric nursing career.
"There are always going to be illnesses
and injuries," Lynch said. "Health care
doesn't close. We are open 24 hours a
day."


Friends, family gather to remember fallen GPD officer


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
kemmets@alligator.org

When he stands at the loca-
tion where Gainesville Police
Lt. Corey Dahlem was hit by a
drunken driver two years ago to-
day, Capt. Bart Knowles doesn't
think about Dahlem's death.
Instead, Knowles said he
thinks about campfires, playing
the guitar and occasionally hav-
ing a beer or two with his old
neighbor and co-
worker.
"When I
come here, that's
what I reflect
upon, not what
has happened
here," Knowles
Dahlem
said. "I think
about the good things, not the
police stuff."
Officers held candles close to
their hearts to protect the flame
from going out as about 150
family members, friends and co-
workers gathered to remember
Dahlem at a candlelight vigil
Thursday night.
The vigil took place at 1700 W.

veteran of 22 years was struck by
a speeding pickup truck on April
3, 2007. Following the UF men's

illegally turned and ignored po-

"It's not much of a celebration
when we lose one of our own,"
Capt. Ed Book said of the basket-
ball team's win. "If we have one
tragedy, the whole event is a fail-
ure."
However, good things do
come out of every bad situation,
Book said.
"Corey would appreciate the
fact that we are safer and more
efficient," he said.
GPD Chief Norman Botsford
said Dahlem was like a father to
the younger officers in the de-
partment.
"Everyone that worked there
liked him," he said. "Which is
not always true of authority fig-
ures."
Since Dahlem's death, Bots-
ford said the department has
worked on DUI education and
prevention.
"More people are killed by
drivers who are under the influ-
ence than any other criminal act,"
he said.
Lt. Keith Kameg said the vigil
highlights how senseless Dahl-

On the morning of a UF versus

Kameg said he walked out of his

an avid FSU fan and prankster,
shrink-wrapped his entire house
and car in garnet and gold.
At the vigil, Lt. Scott Meffen
expressed his love for Dahlem to


his wife Salley and their two chil-

Animal clinics, adoption orgs feel economic strain


By DEANA CASIMANO
Alligator Contributing Writer

As people stretch every dollar
they can, local animal clinics and
adoption organizations are also feel-
ing the effect of a slowed economy.
"It's harder to get people to
adopt animals right now because
they don't want to take on the ex-
tra expense," said Hilary Knodel, a
veterinary technician at the All Cats
Healthcare Clinic on Northwest 13th
Street.
Cats that would normally be ad-
opted from the clinic within a week
have waited for double and triple
that time. Knodel started a Face-
book group to help get the animals
adopted.
Since she started the group, a few
of the cats have left the clinic with
new homes but overall interest has


fallen considerably as the economy
has worsened.
"Last semester students would
come into the clinic just to play with
the cats," she said. "That has not
happened at all yet."
The increased expense of pet sup-
plies and extra time animals spend
at the clinic before adoption has
strained the already tight budget.
Knodel also noticed people wait
longer before bringing their pets
for yearly check-ups or lab work
and shots. Clients are not as willing
to spend money on their animals
like they were in the past she said.
Knodel said an increasing number of
owners who have animals needing
procedures, such as surgeries, cost-
ing hundreds of dollars, will give up
the pet instead of paying for it.
"It's heartbreaking because we
want to help these animals," she


"It's heartbreaking be-
cause we want to help
these animals."
Hilary Knodel
Veterinary technician, All Cats
Healthcare Clinic

said.
The Puppy Hill Farm Animal
Rescue in Melrose also noticed the
effects a bad economy can have on
pet adoptions. Founder and co-
owner Laurie Trenholm said clients
who adopted pets years ago have re-
turned the animals because they can
no longer provide care for them.
The increase in people losing
their homes has also resulted in ani-
mals losing their homes, she said.
Puppies and kittens still get ad-


opted quickly, but finding homes
for the older animals is harder, she
said.
Financially, the pet rescue has
survived rather well because of a
grant awarded to Alachua County
seven years ago through the Mad-
die's Fund, a non-profit organiza-
tion dedicated to stopping the kill-
ing of healthy animals.
The
grant provides participants funding
based on the number of dog and cat
adoptions they do each year.
Along with the Puppy Hill Farm
Animal Rescue, several other local
agencies participate in the program,
including the Alachua County Hu-
mane Society and Animal Services,
Gainesville Pet Rescue, Helping
Hands Rescue at West End Animal
Hospital and Haile's Angels Pet
Rescue, according to the Maddie's


Fund Web site.
When the seven-year grant ends
in July, the organizations supported
by it are supposed to have achieved
self-sufficiency, but in this economy
Trenholm said it will be a challenge.
"The everyday person is think-
ing twice about putting $5 in the
donation jar," she said. Both Knodel
and Trenholm agree that despite
the economy, adopting a pet is
more rewarding and less expensive
than buying one from a pet store or
breeder.
On average, at both the clinic and
the pet rescue, a pet costs about $100

essary shots and spaying or neuter-
ing of the animal.
Buying an animal instead of
adopting it can cost three times that
amount without the shots or fixing
included, Trenholm said.


FAS faces proposed budget cuts of about $16.4M


* THE COLLEGE WOULD ALSO FACE
LAYOFFS.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

UF would lay off about 100 more staff and
faculty under budget cut proposals described
this week, bringing the number of layoffs UF
could see in the next round of cuts to about
250.
Most of the new layoffs would be in the
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences,


which proposed about 93 staff layoffs.
IFAS includes the College of Agricultural
and Life Sciences. IFAS spokesman Jack Bat-
tenfield said IFAS and the college were too
intertwined to be able to separate cuts to the
two entities.
Under its proposal, IFAS would cut about
$16.4 million. In addition to staff layoffs, it
would cut operating expenses, such as mon-
ey for travel and equipment, and reduce the
number of graduate assistants by 10 percent,
or 40 students, he said. IFAS predicts gradu-
ate enrollment would fall by about 4 percent
under that scenario.
Cuts to operating expenses and gradu-


ate assistants would save about $3.7 million,
while layoffs would save about $4 million.
About 97 vacant staff and faculty posi-
tions would be eliminated, saving about $6.7
million. New fund-
UF ing, such as grants,
Administration would be found for
about 45 positions,
saving about $2 million.
Building maintenance and electricity costs
would also be cut by about $100,000.
Though the College of Veterinary Medi-
cine has not released its proposal, the only
college that still hasn't done so, college
spokeswoman Sarah Carey discussed some


of the details.
Under its $2.3 million cut, about 10 faculty
and 10 staff positions, most of them vacant,
would be cut, Carey said.
The college would also hire about seven
fewer residents and interns in the Veterinary
Medical Center, which includes the small and
large animal hospitals, next year, she said.
No programs would be cut and enroll-
ment would not be reduced, she said.
All colleges and administrative units were
asked to present 10 percent budget cuts to UF
by Wednesday. UF Provost Joe Glover said
he had received most of them by Thursday
afternoon.

Charity event to benefit Children's Miracle Network


* 15th ANNUAL DANCE MARATHON
WILL BE HELD SATURDAY.

By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

About 600 students will stand for a cause
this weekend in the O'Connell Center.
UF's 15th annual Dance Marathon will
kick off on Saturday at 11:48 a.m., followed
by 26.2 hours of dancing, donating money to
the Children's Miracle Network at Shands at
UF, according to Madison Cheatwood, public
relations chairwoman of the event.
Children's Miracle Network is a national


organization that helps fund pediatric re-
search and provides treatment for diseases
and injuries.
About $435,560 was raised last year, she
said, adding fundraising efforts began in Sep-
tember.
While some of the funds are used to rent
out the O'Connell Center, all remaining mon-
ey will be given to Children's Miracle Net-
work at Shands Children's Hospital at UF.
To mix it up on the dance floor, partici-
pants will dance through different activities
and perform a five-minute routine about ev-
ery hour.
Ten of the hours will be themed, during
which dancers will have the opportunity to


match by dressing up in costume.
Cheatwood said themes this year include
"Alice in Wonderland," high school cliques,
and even a birthday celebration in reference
to Dance Marathon's 15th anniversary.

"Every dollar stays local."
Madison Cheatwood
Dance Marathon public relations
chairwoman


Food for the event was donated by about
40 different restaurants around town and
will be served to correspond with each hour's
theme.


Cheatwood said local bands and groups
such as the UF Symphony Orchestra and UF
steel drum band will all perform during the
event.
But the marathon offers more than just
fancy dance moves and rhythmic beats.
She said the most touching part of the
night will be when about 24 families share
their stories about how the Children's Miracle
Network has impacted their lives.
No monetary goal was set this year be-
cause any amount of money will help, Cheat-
wood said.
"Every dollar stays local," she said. "You
can walk through Shands and see what (the
money) paid for."


New members subjected to push-ups, running, sleep deprivation

be."
The report also stated that new
members were subjected to push-
ups, running and sleep deprivation.
The evidence of hazing came
from the testimonies of two girls, ac-
cording to the report.
The report noted UF's definition
of hazing includes actions or situa-
tions that endanger the mental or
physical health or safety of a stu-


dent.
In unanimously recommending
the chapter's suspension and pro-
bation, the board noted the chapter
had a history of hazing violations.
The chapter was suspended for
three years in 2003, said Danielle
Pechac, who assumed presidency
of the chapter when it was allowed
back on campus in 2006 and served
until the summer of 2008, the semes-
ter before the hazing occurred.
Pechac declined to comment on
the specifics of the hazing detailed


in the board's report but said the
chapter admitted guilt and accepted
responsibility.
She said the chapter, which cur-
rently has no house,
had been doing well
On since its reinstatement.
Campus "We did everything
to try and prevent this
situation from happening again,"
she said.
The group even accepted the
award for best chapter in 2007-2008
from the Multicultural Greek Coun-


cl in November, she said.
But 10 minutes before receiving
the award, the chapter got a letter
from UF informing it of its tempo-
rary suspension due to allegations
of hazing.
"It was an emotional rollercoast-
er," she said. "It was just, you know,
the best and worst thing at the exact
same time."
Pechac said she doesn't under-
stand why the punishment from the
national organization was so much
harsher than UF's ruling.


"They (the members of the
board) were willing to give us more
opportunity than my national head-
quarters was," she said.
Questions about the national or-
ganization's decision were referred
to its director, who could not be
reached by e-mail.
Pechac said she's hurt but hope-
ful.
"We will work though every
consequence that we were given,"
she said. "We can and we will sur-
vive it."


President addressed students' concerns, cutting undergraduate population

aid as well as have higher qualification stan-
dards.
Students also took the opportunity dur-
ing the meeting to voice their concerns about
looming budget cuts.
UF sophomore Caitlin Plowfield asked
Machen about recent cuts to the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences' religion depart-


ment and how students who were in the ma- of Trustees' new focus on graduate education
jor currently would be affected. and how it would affect


"I wanted to give a face to the questions
being asked, especially in the religion depart-
ment's case," said Plowfield, who is a religion
major. She was reassured by Machen that al-
though they would not be letting in new stu-
dents to the major under the college's current
budget cut proposal, she would be able to
continue and graduate.


Discussion also centered around the Board special."


undergraduates at UF.
"We're not backing off
undergraduate education,"
said Machen, who is in
favor of reducing the un-
dergrad population at UF.
"We're just putting a ring
around it to make it more


At the end of the forum, Jonathan Shef-
field, Jr. president of IRHA, awarded Machen
with a special IHRA pin and said it was rare
for a university president to meet with stu-
dents once, let alone five times in one school
year.
"If your only information is from the Al-
ligator then you're not getting the whole con-
nection," Machen said. "So these forums are
a very valuable and important link for me
and the kids on campus."


Santa Fe College president said budget cuts should have low impact on students

SFC president Dr. Jackson Sasser talks about the college's budget for the upcoming school year, includ-
ing the new buildings being constructed, and encourages attendees not to give up hope, during a meet-
ing in the SFC gymnasium Thursday afternoon.

ance costs. This could mean simple
changes, such as buying generic
rather than brand-name drugs and
going in for routine health screen-
ings in order to prevent problems
before they arise.
According to Lawrence Keen,
assistant to the president, students
may be slightly inconvenienced be-
cause of the cutbacks.
Because a staff of about 850 has
been consolidated to 800, students
may notice slight changes, such as
having to wait an extra day to see an
adviser, Keen said.
No money will be cut from the
college's Student Life budget, a
fund which is established by tak-
ing 10 percent of the cost per credit
hour that each student is enrolled
in. From a credit hour fee of $59.80,
$5.98 goes toward campus activities
and services such as student govern-
ment.
"If we have done our job, the
students will experience minimal
impact," Sasser said, in an interview
held after the meeting.
Despite cutbacks, the college ap-
pears to be making strides in the
positive direction.


The president announced that an
Articulation Agreement has been
reached by SFC and UF's business
college, a plan that would guar-
antee business students from SFC
entrance into UF if they meet the
requirements. Students would then
be eligible to take online classes for a
business degree at UF and even pick
up a minor if they choose.
There is no cap for the number of
students in online classes, and stu-
dents would still get all of the bene-
fits, such as going to football games,
that students who physically attend
class receive.
A transportation bill was also
discussed, one whose fate will be
decided in the coming weeks by the
Legislature. If the bill passes, a new
route will be added to the existing
two, one which runs from the Oaks
Mall to the northwest campus.
Student Body President Cesar
Fernandez, who has been lobbying
for the bill that is more than 9 years
old, said the frequency will also be
improved, with buses coming three
times per hour.
President Sasser remained posi-
tive as he summarized the meeting
by urging everyone to look for ways
to find additional savings.
"We'll get through this," he said.

UF GYMNASTICS

Gators head to NCAA Regionals

By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer

From underdog to top dog, the
UF gymnastics team will be playing a
different role Saturday at the NCAA
North Central Regional Competition in
Iowa City, Iowa.
It's the most important meet of the
season so far because it decides which
teams and individuals will advance to
the NCAA Championships on April
16-18.
The top two teams and top two all-
around competitors who are not on
an advancing team from each regional
proceed to the national championship
competition.
The rotation of events will be differ-
ent for the Gators. UF has a bye in the
first rotation and starts on floor exercise
before moving to vault, uneven bars
and ending on balance beam.
The Gators were overlooked at the
Southeastern Conference Champion-
ships because of their thinner lineup,
but they still managed a third-place fin-
ish.
And while the league champion-
ships have no direct impact on the up-
coming meet, the team is feeding off its
success.
"SECs was certainly, in our point
of view, pretty much like a win," said
Courtney Gladys, who believes the
confidence garnered from the SEC
Championships will roll over into the
regional competition.
It may be a bit harder for the other
teams in the North Central Region
- UCLA, Minnesota, Denver, Iowa
State and Iowa to ignore the Gators
this time considering UF heads in as
the top-ranked team in the grouping,
ranked No. 6 in the country. Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff

DeFelice contributes despite on-again-off-again wrist injury


* SHE IS STILL RECOVERING FROM
OFF-SEASON WRIST SURGERY.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator org

It's the elephant in the locker room, an
obvious issue that goes unaddressed.
Tiffany DeFelice's left wrist, which re-


quired off-season surgery, has made its
presence known to the UF softball team.
The sophomore catcher has missed 14 of
the team's 39 games this year due to the
lingering effects of extensor carpi ulnaris
subluxation a condition where a wrist
tendon slides in and out of its groove.
DeFelice, her coaches and the team's
training staff treat her wrist like a petulant
pro athlete: When it's ready to play, it will


play.
"We just kind of go
with the flow of whatever
my wrist feels like do-
ing," DeFelice said. "So
if it's having a bad day, I
just tell Coach, 'Bad day
DeFelice today,' and we'll go from
there. If it's good, we just
keep going. As long as it stays at a level


where I can play and where I feel that I
can perform and I'm not overwhelmed by
pain, then we'll just go with it."
If she stays at that level, she'll see
time against Mississippi State (17-17, 2-10
Southeastern Conference) this weekend,
as the No. 1 Gators (36-3, 15-1 SEC) host
the Bulldogs for a three-game series.

Gators need


wins on road
By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

Only 16 teams get a chance to host an NCAA
regional, so road play is crucial for a team's
chance at a championship run.
The way the No. 20 Gators have played
away from Gainesville so far this season sug-
gests they are not yet prepared for that honor.
UF (18-9, 6-3 Southeastern Conference) has
a chance to turn the corner on the road with
a successful weekend series at Vanderbilt (17-
11, 3-6 SEC), which is 13-3 at home, starting
tonight at 7.
A winning weekend could
help ready the Gators for the rest
of their SEC schedule, including
another road conference series
Baseball next weekend at Auburn.
"The thing with this team is
we need to learn how to play
on the road," UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan said.
"We have to be able to play as well on the road
as (we do at home). (These road games) will
tell us what type of team we have in the next
couple of weekends."
Struggles with the hitting, pitching and
fielding have all led to their 2-5 record away
from Gainesville.
As a team, UF has hit .211 with 24 runs and
just three homers in those seven games, and the
team scored more than 5 runs only once UF
beat Central Florida in Orlando 7-3 on March
18.
The pitching has not been any better, allow-
ing 34 runs in away contests.
While the pitching and the offense have
been bad, the defense has been atrocious. The
Gators are averaging just over 2.5 errors per

High expectations for Debose unreasonable


Tie biggest question facing UF's offense next season is how
replace Percy Harvin, and it seems like a lot of people
have taken the attitude that, "Oh, Andre Debose will be
here next year. It's all taken care of."
Debose, rated the nation's No. 2 receiver coming out of San-
ford Seminole High by Rivals.com, has been touted as the Sec-
ond Coming, but the claims that he'll shoulder the load Harvin
left behind need to be tempered. Maybe he will be the next Har-
vin -just not yet.
Urban Meyer has made it clear that he doesn't want to give up
what he calls "The Percy Position" just because Harvin entered
the NFL Draft, and why would he? Meyer said opposing coaches
told him that the toughest matchups against UF last season were
Harvin and tight end Aaron Hemandez, and he wants to keep at
least one player on the field who's versatile enough to score by
taking direct snaps, handoffs, option pitches or catching passes.
From the way Meyer talks about Debose, it's clear he thinks
he has his man. On National Signing Day, he called him "the best
player in America," and he's counting on Debose to make his
presence felt right away.
"I expect him to be a starter and a guy who will come in and
contribute," Meyer said Monday. "I expect it because I'm going
off his highlight film. Sometimes I give guys too much credit,
but he has one of the best highlight films I have ever seen. He's
tough, too. I went and saw him play in person, and I saw him do
some great things."
Sure, Debose's highlight film is dazzling. He has blazing
speed that helps him bum defenders while taking direct snaps,
hand-offs, end-arounds or running routes all the things that
make up The Percy Position.
But Debose isn't at spring practice, and he won't arrive until
the summer. As Meyer said this week, spring ball is the time to
determine who'll see playing time, and there's a host of talented
athletes already in place trying to fill Harvin's shoes.
Receiver David Nelson said it'll take several players to make
up for Harvin, and at least for next season, that'll be true.
Running backs Jeff Demps, Chris Rainey and Emmanuel
Moody can take most of the rushing load, along with quarter-
back Tim Tebow. Receiver Deonte Thompson is chomping at the
bit to take over a more versatile role, and a big group of wideouts
is trying to earn more catches.
There's only so much pigskin to go around, and Debose
doesn't have the luxury of going through spring practice to learn
the offense and adjust to the speed of the college game two
things that Harvin said he struggled with early on.
Receivers coach Billy Gonzales is a little less caught up in the
hype, and he knows Debose has a lot of work to do before he'll
be getting carries and catches in crunch time.
"I don't know what I can depend on right now because I
haven't had a chance to work with him and he hasn't been here,"
Gonzales said. "Our expectations are really high, but they're rea-
sonable. It's hard to come into any offense and have an impact as
a freshman."
Keep in mind that in his freshman season, Harvin wasn't re-
ally even Harvin yet. He was more of a side show than the main
act for most of the year. He showed flashes of brilliance here and
there, but it took 10 games before he got 10 touches in a contest.
From then on, he was a focal point of the offense. He was the
MVP of the Southeastern Conference Championship and the
leading receiver in the BCS title game. In his sophomore and ju-


S nior seasons, the offense revolved around
him, and things seemed slightly out of
whack when he wasn't around (see the
2008 SEC Championship).
But all of that took time, and Debose
will need at least the same grace period.
Mike McCall "I definitely would say he'll come in
McCall-in' It and contribute, but I don't know if he'll
Like I See It be able to come in and be the man right
mmccall@alligator.org away," Harvin said. "I think between
him, Rainey, Demps and David Nelson,
they'll get the job done. But to put all that
pressure on one person is hard."
And Debose will join the team this summer with a level of
hype that Harvin didn't even have to face.
When Harvin signed with UF in 2006, he had Tebow in his
recruiting class, which took a lot of pressure off. Debose easily
the best offensive player in the Gators' 2009 class won't have
that luxury.
What's more, there's a mold for Debose to fit into. Harvin
arrived as a talented athlete, but it was hard to know what to
expect. He carved out a position in Meyer's offense, and now De-
bose has to live up to it.
That's a notion that the 6-foot, 176-pounder isn't happy with,
as he said on signing day that he doesn't want to be compared
to anyone else. Like it or not, he'll be measured by the Harvin
yardstick throughout his career, and it's clear that there are some
differences.
They're both very versatile receivers, but Debose doesn't have
the same tools as Harvin.
"I think Percy Harvin is more of a guy who makes people miss
in open space because he has that wiggle," Rivals.com recruit-
ing analyst Barton Simmons said. "Debose is more of a one-cut,
outrun-you type of guy. He's very efficient in his movements as
far as outrunning people to the sideline or up the middle. That's
what he excels at, more than making people miss in space. Not
that he can't do that, but that's more of Harvin's specialty than
Debose's."
Essentially, Debose is more like a taller version of Demps
than Harvin, Jr. He uses his straight-line speed more than the
lightning-quick dance moves that Harvin utilized to embarrass
defenders.
None of this is to say that Debose isn't an electrifying receiver.
In his senior season, he rushed for 1,332 yards and 12 touch-
downs, caught 27 passes for 664 yards and six scores, threw for
353 yards and four touchdowns and also returned kickoffs and
punts. He also made the winning touchdown catch in the 6-A
State Championship against Miami Northwestern, scoring three
times in the game.
He has the talent to be a huge asset for UF, but to expect him
to fill in for one of college football's best players right away is
very far off base. If Debose is going to be like Harvin this season,
he'll be like the freshman Harvin, not the one who served as the
linchpin for UF's dynamic attack for two years.
"I think he can come in and help them in the fall for sure, but
to think he'll be the centerpiece of that offense is a little tough
to say," Simmons said. "He's a pretty ridiculous athlete, and all
that's going to come through. He'll have a big play here or there,
but I don't think he'll be an impact player until mid-season at
the least."

UF MEN'S GOLF

No. 5 spot up for grabs heading into tournament


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer

In golf, a sport that focuses on the indi-
vidual, you don't often hear a coach beg-
ging for a stronger team effort.
But after the Gators' previous tourna-
ment, coach Buddy Alexander did just
that.
"You aren't going to win with three
(players with good) scores a day, and basi-
cally that's what we had all weekend," Al-
exander said.
However, as the No. 5 UF men's golf
team prepares to travel to Atlanta to play


in their final event before the postseason
starting Sunday, the U.S. Collegiate Cham-
pionship, Alexander believes he is partly to
blame for his team's performance in their
last tournament.
"I think that a lot of that blame might fall
on me because I elected not to take Toby
Ragland, and he is typically one of our
more consistent guys," he said.
At this point of the season, Alexander
will not make the same mistake twice.
"We are pretty much locked in to four
guys playing the rest of the year," he said.
Those four guys are Billy Horschel, Tim
McKenney, Tyson Alexander and Ragland.
One problem area for UF this year had


been its fifth spot in the lineup.
Alexander has given Will Strickler, Mu
Hu and Max Kieffer the
opportunity to make the
fifth spot theirs, but incon-
sistent play has prevented
them from doing so.
In this event, sopho-
more Andres Echavarria
will take his chance at the
Echavarria position.
"Andres hasn't played a lot this semes-
ter, but we have been very inconsistent at
that fifth spot with Will, Mu and Max," Al-
exander said.
"I'm just rolling the stones with Andres


a little bit, giving him a shot to see what he
can do."
With the postseason just two weeks
away, the Gators will have to find the golfer
that completes their lineup quickly if they
want to be successful.
But before they can get to the postseason,
UF will have to play in what could be its
most difficult tournament of the year. The
top five teams in the nation, including the
Gators, will be competing this weekend.
"This is the biggest tournament of the
semester so far, it's the best field that we
will play, it's on a terrific golf course, and it
kind of sets the stage for possibilities in the
postseason," Alexander said.

biggest threat

one's like, 'Oh, Florida, we want to beat
them,' so of course (the other teams) are
going to want to get us," Alicia Good-
win said.
Goodwin, who sprained her knee
before the SEC Championships and
was pulled from the lineup, will most
likely be back onbars and beam lineups
in the regional competition. Despite be-
ing taken out of the lineup at the last
minute, Goodwin said she doesn't feel
any added pressure to make up for
missed action.
Based on rankings, No. 7 UCLA is
the stiffest competition the Gators will
face, with the next-highest ranked team
being No. 18 Minnesota.
Facing UCLA is nothing new for the
Gators, who have
faced the Bruins
in regional com-
petition two of the
Gymnastics last three years.
UF coach Rhonda
Faehn, a UCLA alumna, earned All-
America honors as a gymnast there.
Faehn believes the Gators still may
be able to use injuries as a way to divert
attention from their ranking.
With no more than eight possible
gymnasts competing out of a 12-wom-
an roster, consistency shouldn't be an
issue with the possibility of five gym-
nasts competing all-around.
"We all wish we had the other four
girls," Elizabeth Mahlich said.
Faehn said the gymnasts healthy
enough to compete are fully committed
and said the other teams at the regional
competition may be thinking, like at
the SEC competition, that they have a
great shot because UF is beat up.
"We proved them all wrong at
SECs," Faehn said.
She also realized the top seeding in
the regional doesn't bring about any
extra points.
"You can never step into a regional
championship thinking you've got it in
the bag," Faehn said. "The No. 1 seeds
everywhere are feeling, 'We still have
to do our job."'

game on the road, including
a six-error performance at
Arkansas on March 15.
O'Sullivan thinks concen-
tration has been the biggest
issue preventing his team
from succeeding when they
are not in McKethan Stadi-
um, and he needs his expe-
rienced players to step up in
these games.
"We've got to try and work
on our focus," O'Sullivan
said. "We've talked about it.
We have challenged a few of
our older guys who might
not have been playing as
well, and hopefully they will
show some good leadership
on the road."
With so many inexperi-
enced players on the team, it
is important for the Gators to
get good performances out of
their veteran players.
O'Sullivan doesn't blame
the team's youth for the
shortcomings on the road be-
cause the Gators had the same
struggles last year when they
went 7-14 in away games and
0-4 at neutral sites.
"I'm sure (the team's
youth) probably is a factor
in it, but we got to get over
the hump," he said. "I don't
know if we need to change
our approach or what, but

we need to play better on the
road."
The Gators will rely on
inexperienced pitching this
weekend with junior college
transfer Jeff Barfield starting


tonight and freshman lefty
Nick Maronde taking the
mound at the start of Satur-
day's game.
O'Sullivan knows he can't
rely on UF's play at home to


go deep in the postseason.
"If we are going to get to
the postseason, which is ob-
viously everybody's goal, we
have to learn to play on the
road," he said.


Versatile sophomore comfortable in any role on team


SOFT, from page 21


Wednesday at Auburn, so UF coach
Tim Walton put her back in the start-
ing lineup for both of the Gators' wins
against the Tigers. In Game 2, Walton
moved her to the second spot in the or-
der, where right fielder Kelsey Bruder
had started the last 19 games.
"I have no idea how that decision was
made," DeFelice said. "I got on the bus,
and Coach says, 'How's your wrist?'
and I go, 'It's good,' and he says, 'OK,
you're starting."'
DeFelice responded by batting 1 for 3
with two RBIs and a walk in the second
game of the series.


After the doubleheader, Walton ex-
plained his decision to move the versa-
tile sophomore up in the order.
"Her on-base percentage is really
high, and I didn't want to give up on
an opportunity to drive in more runs,"
Walton said. "She's a matchup problem
because she can do so many things -
she can hit and run, she can bunt, she's
so good at a lot of different things."
DeFelice was modest about her abili-
ties on the field, simply saying she does
whatever her coach asks her to do.
"I try to make the pitcher work as
hard as they possibly can to get me out,"
she said. "I like to make them feel like
they really had to work. I don't mind if I


have to work at it. If I have to go 23 or 17
pitches, it doesn't bother me I enjoy
being there."
As a freshman playing in the Wom-
en's College World Series, DeFelice
fought through a 23-pitch at-bat against
Louisiana-Lafayette.
An at-bat that long can even wear on
a player who says she has "always de-
stroyed" batter's boxes and is known to
kick up the dirt and take the chalk off
the clay when she steps up to the plate.
"Coach has said it a million times:
I'm very intense. That's just the way I
am," she said. "I really love this game
and I really love playing it, so it just
comes out in me like that."

UF TENNIS


Gators face Tigers in critical late-season matches


By JOSEPH R. HOLZER
Alligator Writer

This weekend the No. 10 UF
men's tennis team is hosting its last
two home matches of the season
beginning at 3 p.m. today against
LSU.
The Tigers (6-8, 1-5 Southeastern
Conference) are only ranked No. 34
by the Intercollegiate Tennis Asso-
ciation but have plenty of ferocity at
Court 1. Michael Venus is No. 6 in
singles, while the duo of Venus and
Neal Skupski is No. 8 in doubles.
Gators freshman Carlos Cueto
defeated Venus 7-6 (7), 7-6 (6) at


the SEC Indoors on Jan. 19. Cueto
is ranked No. 27, one spot ahead of
teammate Alex Lacroix.
UF (12-6, 3-3 SEC) is coming off
a 6-1 victory at Mississippi State
but dropped its last home match -
the first loss at Linder Stadium this
spring to No. 2 Mississippi last
Friday night. The Gators are current-
ly tied for second in the SEC East.
A win against LSU would push
UF closer to division leaders Geor-
gia and Tennessee, ITA's third- and
fourth-ranked teams, who defeated
the Gators in mid-March.
On Sunday, UF will face Arkan-
sas (9-9, 1-5 SEC), which also has a
highly ranked singles player in No.


13 Blake Strode.
Gators coach Andy Jackson has
often emphasized the team over
the individual, so wins on courts 4
through 6, as well as in doubles, will
be just as crucial as his top players'
performances in both matches.
WOMEN BAYOU-BOUND: While the
men attempt to avoid upsets, the No.
16 UF women's team faces a critical
and final regular-season road stretch
against No. 24 LSU and No. 15 Ar-
kansas. The Gators play the Tigers at
4 p.m. today.
"We have a tough weekend,"
UF coach Roland Thomqvist said.
"LSU is really good at home. We're
certainly going to have our work cut


out for us. We're going to continue
working on a couple things."
The Gators (10-6, 4-2 SEC) have
had a seemingly endless carousel
of doubles teams
over the season.
Marrit Boonstra
and Jo Mather
entered the ITA
doubles rankings
on Tuesday at
No. 80. The tan-
IMather dem has won the
last eight matches
it has played.
Boonstra, the No. 8 singles player,
is undefeated at 15-0 in dual match
play despite falling three spots in the


rankings this week.
Still, the junior is excited about
continuing SEC play and said the
Arkansas match would be a crucial
one.
Mather has just as much confi-
dence as her partner.
"The team is getting along great,"
Mather said. "The more we play, the
better we get."
The doubles point usually sets
the tone for the match.
Thomqvist is aware of this and
believes his tinkering which has
included involving walk-ons Brooke
Allen and Lauren Wolken has
paid off.


UF competes in Gainesville for first time since January


* HIGH SCHOOL, COLLEGE AND PRO
ATHLETES WILL PARTICIPATE.

By TONI-ANN MILLER
Alligator Writer

Home sweet home.
After the start of the outdoor season on the
road was cut short due to inclement weather,
UF is home for its next track meet.
If the weather holds up this weekend, some
of UF's athletes will have the opportunity to
open their outdoor season on a grand stage in
the Florida Relays.
The Relays, in its 65th season, showcases
high school talents competing against each
other and also pits pros against some of the


finest college athletes in a two-day event.
UF senior Carlos Phillips has been to quite
a few Florida Relays, some of which were
reminiscent of what happened in Tallahassee
last weekend.
However, Phillips understands the weath-
er is a part of the sport and is not concerned
about it in his final Florida Relays as a Gator.
"I've been to Florida Relays since my junior
year in high school," Phillips said.
"It's been rained out a couple times, but
whether its raining or just light showers or
whether it's hot, sunny, you just gotta go out
there and run."
The last time UF competed in front of the
home crowd was in the Tom Jones Memorial
Invitational in January, and the team had one
of its best showings of the indoor season.


"It's always a very exciting event.
It's always an honor to be a part
of it."
Mike Holloway
UF track and field coach

The athletes will enjoy the opportunity to
compete in Gainesville this weekend, and they
will try to outdo their last home performance.
"It's the best thing because you've got your
friends, your family there, and you don't want
to embarrass yourself out there," Phillips said.
"It's fun, though, in front of the fans, in front of
my home crowd."
UF coach Mike Holloway, who has attend-
ed his fair share and then some of Florida


Relays, relishes the opportunity to be a part of
this Relays.
"It's always a very exciting event. It's al-
ways an honor to be a part of it," Holloway
said. "I've actually attended every Florida Re-
lay since 1978, so I've been around a long time,
seen a lot of relays."
This weekend's Relays, which begins Fri-
day at 10 a.m., promises to be an entertaining
two days, filled with some of the highest com-
petition in the sport.
"There's going to be a world-record at-
tempt by an elite group of athletes on Satur-
day morning in the shuttle hurdles relay, and
we're excited about that," Holloway said.
"The Gators are a part of that relay, so we're
gonna try not to get beat by too much in that
situation."
