Demand for state abuse


shelters up 40 percent


By EMILY FUGGETTA
Alligator Writer
efuggetta@a ligator.org

The demand for domestic abuse shelters in
Florida is up by about 40 percent since the reces-
sion started, according to a recent state report.
Cpl. Bruce Ferris, a Gainesville Police detec-
tive specializing in domestic violence, said that
economic hard times result in more domestic
violence because people are under financial pres-
sure.
Ferris said that while domestic violence re-
ports are more common among people of a lower
socioeconomic status, the problem applies to all
economic classes.
"There's domestic violence happening all over
the city, but people with some resources don't al-
ways report to us," he said. "If your husband is
well-known in the community, he's a big guy at


the church, he's got a job in jeopardy, a lot's not
being reported because you don't want to ruin
his career."
"(Abuse) tends to mirror what's
going on in the greater societal
picture."
Theresa Harrison
Director of Peaceful Paths

Marala Scott, who co-authored a book with
her husband called "In Our House" about her
childhood experience with abuse, said potential
abusers are like time bombs, and economic crisis
can detonate them at any moment.
"My father had that same stress growing up,
and he couldn't outwardly take out his frustra-

SG to discuss education act


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

Student senators plan to
discuss a resolution supporting
the Development, Relief and
Education for Alien Minors, or
DREAM, Act at tonight's Sen-
ate meeting.
The bill, which will be voted
on in October by the U.S. Con-
gress, would, if passed, give
some undocumented students,
who are between 12 and 30
years old, the opportunity to
attend a U.S. university.
"This is about equal educa-
tion, something that should not
be denied," said Unite Party
Sen. Gaby Alvarez, who rep-
resents UF's sophomore class


and is one of the resolution's
authors.
A resolution is a piece of
legislation that states the opin-
ion of Senate but does not take
action.
Student Alvarez
Government wrote the
resolution
with Grey Caceros, president
of UF's Coalition of Spanish
Speakers through Advocacy
and Service.
The bill, which was first
brought before the U.S. Con-
gress in 2004, requires students
to have lived in the U.S. before
turning 16 years old and have
earned a high school diploma
or its equivalent, such as a Gen-
eral Education Degree, or GED,


according to Alvarez.
Alvarez said passing the
DREAM Act would benefit the
U.S. because it would increase
the country's educated work
force.
Alvarez said she is optimis-
tic the resolution will be passed
during tonight's meeting.
Senate President Audrey
Goldman, who represents stu-
dents living in District A, said
she believes this resolution will
be a controversial topic since
immigration is a sensitive is-
sue.
"I hope the senators will
vote according to what con-
stituents want, and not to what
their personal beliefs are," she
said.

GPD: No foul play suspected after
man found dead in canal Sunday
Preliminary autopsy results from a
man found dead in Gainesville indicat-
ed that there was no foul play.
The body of Timothy McMillian,
55, was found Sunday at about 1 p.m.
after someone spotted his body behind
JP Gator's pool hall, said Gainesville
Police Department spokesman Keith
Kameg.
Kameg said McMillian's autopsy


showed that his death was due to natu-
ral causes or the result of a fall.
"We are still waiting for toxicology
tests to come back," he said. "But that
could take weeks to months."
Kameg said that McMillan was at
the Veteran's Affairs Hospital the day
he was found near a creek behind the
shopping center on the corner of South-
west 13th Street and Southwest 16th
Avenue.

New survey allows RTS riders to make suggestions


By MATT TRIPP
Alligator Contributing Writer

A new survey will allow
Gainesville bus riders to make sug-
gestions to the Regional Transit Sys-
tem.
Starting today, RTS will ask rid-
ers to complete a survey designed to
find out what customers would like
to see changed.


The 25,000 surveys will be distrib-
uted by 25 monitors, who will ride
selected routes. The survey comes
as part of RTS's 10-year Transit De-
velopment Plan, which aims to keep
the system adaptable and useful.
"We're trying to get an overall
picture of what customers want,"
said Linda Kubitz, RTS marketing
and communications specialist.
She said the survey will cover


everything from what routes need
benches and shelters to the useful-
ness of the RTS Web site.
A similar survey was conducted
about four years ago,
Local but was not as in-
News depth, Kubitz said.
Leah Chapman, a
19-year-old UF sophomore who has
been riding RTS buses for two years,
said she was glad they were doing


a survey.
"There are some problems with
late drivers at the Park-N-Ride
stops. But other than that it's great,"
she said.
The survey will also help deter-
mine where the new buses, which
cost about $360,000 each, would be
most useful. Kubitz said the new
buses will be cheaper than keeping
older buses running.


"We're spending money to save
money," she said. "Replacing buses
is our No. 1 priority."
The Gainesville RTS fleet has 50
buses eligible for retirement, which
means they are more than 12 years
old and have more than 500,000
miles.
The survey is scheduled to run
Tuesday through Thursday of this
week and next week.


Officer who arrested UF pitcher under investigation


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
kemmets@alligator.org

Gainesville police officer Daniel Surrency,
who arrested a UF baseball player for a DUI, is
under internal investigation.
After Surrency arrested Stephen Locke, 22,
Surrency wrote in the arrest report that Locke
was driving 10 mph under the speed limit and
swerved toward incoming traffic. Surrency


also wrote that Locke's eyes were bloodshot
and his speech was slurred.
The State Attorney's Office dropped the
case on March 7 after reviewing reports and
watching the video of the traffic stop that was
taken from Surrency's police car.
State Attorney Bill Cervone said although
he thought there may have been probable
cause for the arrest, probable cause does not
equate to proof beyond a reasonable doubt.
"First, Locke lawfully refused to take a field


sobriety and a Breathalyzer
test," Cervone said. "And
the video recording does
not show any erratic driving
patterns because it was not
turned on until right before
Locke was pulled over."
Locke There was no behavior
Locke such as falling or stumbling
when he got out of the car, Cervone said.
In the video, Surrency said that he was call-


ing Ofc. Joey Devore to make the DUI arrest,
so GPD would be eligible for a renewal of a
federal grant. Sgt. Joe Raulerson said there is
no DUI grant. He said Devore was called to
handle the arrest so the other officers could re-
sume routine patrol. Each DUI arrest can take
up to three hours, he said.
Raulerson said that while watching the
video he spotted about five signs that Locke
was driving drunk, including failure to make
eye contact and swaying back and forth.

Nobel Memorial Prize winner speaks on economy


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Nobel Memorial Prize win-
ner and MIT institute professor
emeritus Robert Solow spoke on
the Obama administration's re-
sponse to the financial crisis to a
crowd of about 200 students and
faculty at the Reitz Union Audi-
torium on Monday.

"I think that the stimulus
package was too small and
too late."
Robert Solow
Nobel Memorial Prize winner and
MIT institute professor emeritus

Solow, 84, who labeled him-
self a lifelong Democrat, said
Obama entered office faced with
economic problems he did not
create, including a deep reces-
sion, the collapse of the nation's
financial system and a low level
of consumer demand.
"I doubt that any president
given this hand to play could
have played it systematically bet-
ter, and a lot of presidents would
have played it worse," he said.
Solow, who won the Nobel
Memorial Prize for his work on
economic growth in 1987, said
he favored the president's policy
of reducing budget deficits over
time rather than immediately.
Still, Solow did not hesitate to

nomic policies.
"I think that the stimulus
package was too small and too
late," he said.
He said he supports giving
more money and said Obama
may have to offer a second dose
of stimulus at the end of the
year.
Solow also found fault in the
composition of the bill, adding
more jobs would have been cre-
ated if the $3 billion allocated to
the National Science Foundation
had been used to subsidize state
and local governments.
Solow noted the stimulus
package was an improvement
from past responses to American
recessions, but spoke of mixed
responses by U.S. citizens to the
economic downturn.
American household incomes
declined from mid-2007 to the
end of 2008, Solow said.
Despite the American econo-
my remaining just as capable of
producing goods and services,
many American families per-
ceived themselves as poor, he
said.
At the end of his hour-long
speech, Solow stepped off the
stage, only to be swarmed by
admiring students asking about
career advice, autographs and
economic affairs.

"I would like President Obama
to consider that too big to fail is
too big to exist," Solow said.
If a company damages the
economy, it should be broken up,
he said, adding the government
should function as a regulating
force.
In a question-and-answer ses-
sion, one audience member asked


Solow about how long the econ-
omy would take to recover from
the crisis.
Solow said the recession could
hit bottom in the next 12 months,
but the time of an eventual recov-
ery is unknowable to any degree.
It will take longer than a year
for the economy to get back to
anything Americans would de-
scribe as normal, he said.

Editorial

Don't Hate

Acts of intolerance have

no place in Gainesville

ews of inflammatory graffiti on the side of a UF frater-
nity house has the Editorial Board dismayed by such
thoughtless actions that only serve to oppress and
spread ill will.
By drawing a swastika on AEPi's soon-to-open chapter
house, the spineless individual responsible for the anti-Semitic
action demonstrated behavior that embodies an archaic ideol-
ogy utterly unacceptable in American society.
Whether the decision to spray a symbol of enmity stems from
a disagreement between two fraternities or simply someone
with a warped perception of the world, there is no situation in
which one could justify this dear-cut example of malevolence.
Committing a hate crime puts a damper on the entire com-
munity, not just the group directly affected by such malicious
behavior.
Gainesville and UF students alike pride themselves as a city
and people that opens its arms to anyone and everyone no
better shown than by the recent city election.
The Editorial Board can't help but wonder why someone
would risk fines and jail time just so that they could attempt to
belittle a Jewish fraternity in the crudest fashion possible.
Yes, the swastika hurts and acts as a reminder of a trying his-
tory as a people, but we are confident that the men of AEPi will
come together and emerge stronger as a result.
Actions such as these contradict what The Gator Nation
stands for, and we urge law enforcement to make that known
by charging any potential subject to the fullest extent of the
law.
UF and Gainesville will not allow for acts of hate to go un-
noticed in our own backyard.


Mean Beans


ith final exams and
projects looming
on the horizon, the
Editorial Board would like
to take the opportunity to
encourage you to consume
massive amounts of coffee
and don't stop.
Wait, what?
According to an article
on CNN.com, caffeine with-
drawal has caused major
problems for coffee drink-
ers across the country to the
point that they've experi-
enced flu-like symptoms,
such as headaches and even
depression.
If a Starbucks addict fails
to down a cup of joe as little
as 12 hours after his or her
latest fix, then he or she may
start feeling lousy and unable
to function.
The worst results ensue
for coffee addicts trying to
kick their habit cold turkey
- a big no-no according to
health experts.
Instead of going from five
cups to zero overnight, the


best course of action would be
adopting a "step-down" pro-
gram that gradually weens

RECENTLY, A JAMAICA-SIZED ICE SHELF BROKE
OFF FROM THE ANTARCTIC PENINSULA, BREAKING
UP INTO SMALLER ICEBERGS THAT ARE MORE
VULNERABLE TO MELTING.


Column

Potheads targeted
udging by how our national press covered the G-20
summit, President Barack "Blue Steel" Obama was
off in Europe refereeing his wife's Zoolander-esque
walk-off" against French First Lady Carla Bruni-
Sarkozy.
Largely invisible in the news was the fact that April 1
marked the implementation of the biggest federal tax in-
crease ever levied on tobacco, a law that may be reaching
out for more green than anyone has noticed.
Aside from being a passive-aggressive gambit, such a
huge tax on tobacco falls much more severely on the poor.
Since the tobacco taxes are scheduled to fund health in-
surance for poor children and families, one may see this
as a defensible piece of legislation.
However, this only further snares our tangled health
care situation by winding more governmental regulation
around an already twisted private insurance landscape.
You don't untie a knot by simply pulling on either end
of the rope; just because smoking is bad and health in-
surance for impoverished families is good does not mean
that this bill will be of any quantifiable positive impact to
our broken medical racket.
Nobody in the American media really seemed to care.
Those that did run stories about the tax increase all
dutifully spouted the official governmental line about
how the tax would force people to quit smoking, which
inanely simplifies a litany of social and psychological re-
alities.
This 2009 tobacco tax, though, is particularly notable
for being the first time the American government has suc-
cessfully taxed marijuana smoking.
While this law weighs down cigarette packs, pipe to-
bacco, chewing tobacco and snuff with 158-percent tax


by new tobacco tax
increases, the real money is being
made on blunt smokers. The law
taxes large cigars more than 700
percent more, while small cigars
and "roll your own" wrappers
were hit with tax increases over
2,000 percent.
Tommy Maple Gas station owners are outraged
letters@alligator.org the cheeky-eyed customers who
buy blunt wraps and papers also
end up buying a lot of overpriced
chips and sodas.
Experts are predicting Funyuns sales to plummet na-
tionwide.
The April 15 deadline to file federal income taxes, the
ultimate American un-holiday, falls right before the 4/20
national marijuana smoking holiday. Since this issue ties
into both unruly taxation and the roll-your-own crowd, I
hereby suggest a national day of protest for blunt aficio-
nados somewhere in between these two days.
Most of the taxed and blunted will be scrambling to fill
out paperwork on the 15th, and on the 20th weedheads
will be sinking into couches across the country and will
be too busy watching DVDs to take part in an organized
protest.
Saturday, April 18 seems like a fair compromise.
I know that organizing smokers to do anything other
than listen to music or play video games is a Herculean
task, but I even have a nifty motto everyone can chant -
"No taxation without legalization."
Just remember bring your own damn Funyuns.

Curving is grade redistribution
Johnathan Lott ought to get his
facts straight before trying to be
cute. UF does have a grade redis-
tribution system. It is called curv-
ing grades, which literally means
you force grades in to a normal
distribution; they are fit to the bell

Genetically modifying crops produces plentiful, resilient food


Before watching the video "Harvest of
Fear," I had never heard of genetically
modified organisms.
Most people do not know they have
consumed genetically modified crops be-
cause there is no law saying that they must
be labeled as such.
Genetically modified crops, also known
as genetically modified organisms or
GMOs, are crops that have been injected
with a specific plant or animal gene that
enhances the crop's ability to fight a par-
ticular virus, infection or disease, making
it immune so the crop can flourish.
The simplest way to do this is to use a
gene gun. Scientists literally shoot genes
into the crop with compressed air.
GMOs are used in agriculture to create
healthier and more abundant crops.


For example, in Hawaii papayas were
being destroyed by a virus. Once geneti-
cally modified, the papaya were not only
immune to the virus, but they grew larger.
Scientists can also modify the genes of
crops so they do not need pesticides be-
cause the crop can produce its own defens-
es against pests.
This helps farmers save an abundant
amount of money because all they have
to do is plant the GMO without having to
worry about spraying it with chemicals.
One argument for the use of GMOs is
that they produce a lot more food, which
could curb world hunger. This problem
will not go away without help from sci-
ence. With GMOs, there will be more food,
which will help everyone out.
GMOs have not been found to be harm-

ful to humans. It
has taken three de-
cades of research
and not one prob-
lem has arisen due


to GMOs.
An argument against them is that we do
not know the long-term effects of these or-
ganisms.
Only time will tell what will happen,
if anything, because of the GMOs we con-
sume.
The second argument against the use of
GMOs is a moral one. Is it right to be shoot-
ing genes from an animal into a plant, or
vice versa?
Also, GMOs are not labeled for the con-
sumer.
I am in favor of GMOs.


A major problem in the world today is
starvation. With GMOs, more food will be
produced, but the hardest part will still be
distributing it.
A second reason I am for GMOs is that
not only will we have more food, but it will
be stronger. The crops produced will be
immune to disease, infection and viruses.
With proper research, the food will be
healthier than ever.
This is a giant step; who knows where
it will take us to finding cures or exploring
any other possibilities?
I know that the future may be unknown
and frightening, but isn't that how science
works strategically groping around the
unknown hoping to find answers?

The sounds of hammers, drills and country radio filled

The lab is funded by $1.5 million in project money allo-
cated over two years by UF to Dr. John Wright II, the College
of Journalism and Communications' dean, when he took his
post.
Scheduled to open in August, the lab will be used by jour-
nalism and telecommunications students.
New courses, which are expected to be created specifically
for the lab, will bring together students from the two majors,
according to David Carlson, director of the
On Center for Media Innovation and Research and
Campus manager of the project.
"It's gonna be cool, I wish we could have
done it 10 years ago," he said.
The lab will contain a 3-D projector, a "whisper room"
for recording audio without interference and a wall of about
eight 56-inch flat-screen monitors which can be controlled to
display a single image or dozens of videos, among other con-
figurations.

Study abroad steady


despite economy


By AMANDA HINES
Alligator Contributing Writer


Despite the economic downturn,
the number of students grabbing
passports to head to Paris with UF's
College of Journalism and Communi-
cations has remained steady.
Melissa Johns, 21, stood in the fi-
nancial aid line at Criser Hall at least
two times this semester.
She said she needed funds to study
abroad for her senior summer trip
with the journalism department.
"It's expensive, but it is also a once-
in-a-lifetime opportunity," she said.
"I have been putting it off for the past
three years, and I know if I don't do it
now, I never will."
Although the program is one
month long, Johns plans to stay for an
additional month. She estimated she
will need about $7,500 for airfare and
living expenses during that time.
Johanna Cleary, an assistant pro-
fessor in UF's telecommunications
department, has been involved in the
College of Journalism and Communi-
cations study abroad trips for the past
two years. She said the department
was concerned enrollment for the
program might be down because of
the economy, but added the number
of participants will match the amount
in last year's group.
"It took us a little longer to get
there," Cleary said, "but in light of
how serious the economy is, we feel
pretty good about how the program
has turned out."
She said she was surprised that the


program's additional side trip to Lon-
don is full, even though it cost about
$500, in addition to the basic program
cost of $5,690.
Cleary said two more faculty
members were scheduled to be added
to the program given the popularity
of the trip last summer.
She said the program hoped it
would bring more students than last
year, but the economy's decline has
kept the numbers equal.
"We will be able to offer every-
thing we wanted, however," she said,
"I think we have come off pretty well
of things considered."
Student Cleary said because
Life the France study abroad
trip occurs during the
summer, the Florida
Bright Futures Scholarship Program
will not cover its fees. However, she
said there are other funding opportu-
nities, such as Florida Prepaid College
Plan and outside student loans.
Mike Weigold, an advertising
professor, is in charge of the applica-
tion process for the program and said
available scholarships are offered
through UF's International Center.
"The downside here is you will
need to commit to the program before
you know if you get a scholarship,"
Weigold wrote in an e-mail.
For remaining costs, loans may be
obtained through institutions that
offer financial aid, he said.
Johns said she didn't qualify for
additional aid through UF and all
of her current aid has been used for
fall and spring semester classes.

Jail offers


culinary class

* FOUR INMATES ATTEND THE PROGRAM.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer

Jimmy Bailey loves to cook. In fact, he cooks four
times a day.
He cooks breakfast, lunch and dinner for the in-
mates of the Alachua County Jail, and lunch once a day
for the staff.
Bailey, 46, who was arrested in September for theft,
is one of four inmates who are attending the 90-day
culinary program offered at the jail. Through the pro-
gram, the inmates learn about kitchen safety, sanita-
tion, cooking utensils and food storage.
"Inmates cooking to earn a certification to possibly
get a job when they get out of jail, that's something
new," ASO Bureau Chief Eugene Morris said.
The food service company ARAMARK provides the
class with its food, supplies and teachers.
Ninety-five percent of the inmates are going home
after they serve their time in jail and most of them live
in Gainesville, he said.
"From the time someone walks in the door to the
time they go home, it is our job to get them ready for
reentry," Morris said. "And it is their job to take advan-
tage of what we provide."
Morris said the jail held a construction program last
fall for the inmates, and a few of them who have been
released are now taking construction courses at Santa
Fe College.
If the inmates pass the course's final test, they will
be certified food service professionals, Morris said. He
smiled as he said that his speech at the course gradua-
tion will probably include "a recipe for success."

Facebook, MySpace breeding grounds for scams


* MOST CASES DEAL WITH
FRAUDULENT CHECKS.

By AMANDA HINES
Alligator Contributing Writer

As more people join Facebook
and Myspace, the social net-
working Web sites have become
a breeding ground for money
scams.
Caitlin Murphy, a 20-year-old
sophomore at Santa Fe College,
received a check for $2,300 for two
tickets she sold for $200 on Face-
book's Marketplace application.
"I felt weird about the whole
transaction," Murphy said, "but I
followed the directions the seller
gave me because I could have

LOCAL


used the money."
She said the buyer contacted
her through e-mail and told her to
consider the tickets sold for $200
even though she listed the tickets
for $50.
After getting the check, Mur-
phy said the letter attached said
to put the check into her account,
get a money order for the sum left
over and send the money order to
a different address.
She said a teller at the Wacho-
via Bank on Southwest Archer
Road warned her that the check
may be fraudulent.
The teller consulted with co-
workers and then called a num-
ber that told her the funds for the
check were not there.


"If I would have sent the mon-
ey order, the check would never
go through and I would have been
out $2,000," Murphy said.
According to Tiffany Dunn,
a verification unit
Student analyst for Wachovia
Life Bank's loss manage-
ment department in
Northeast Florida, fraud through
social-networking sites is becom-
ing a popular way to target col-
lege students.
"Most of the time students are
in desperate need of money and
are easily tricked," Dunn said.
She said most of these cases
are usually through fraudulent
checks that scammers use to buy
items off places like Facebook's


Marketplace application or eBay.
"Any time you sell something
and someone sends you a check
for more than the item is worth,
and then wants you to send them
the rest of the money back, it is
usually a scam," Dunn said.
Murphy said she e-mailed the
buyer and told him she lost the
tickets to avoid controversy. She
said he had her address and she
didn't want to take any chances.
The growing numbers of scams
through social-networking sites
has triggered response from the
Better Business Bureau.
The Northeast Florida Bet-
ter Business Bureau office in
Gainesville is linked to consumer
tips on how to be protected against


scammers on social-networking
sites.
According to the news release,
wiring money to a different loca-
tion is common, and if completed
there is no way for consumers to
get the money back.
Even though check fraud has
long been a problem, Dunn said
the number of cases are rising be-
cause social-networking Web sites
allow people to claim to be friends
with someone they don't know.
"If the money is too good to be
true," she said, "it probably is."
Dunn said you should never
accept checks from someone you
don't know and to try to use a
payment system like PayPal to
safeguard transactions.


Forecasters predict record temperature drop in G'ville


By ANA GONI-LESSAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Weather analysts predict that Gainesville
will see a record temperature drop to 33 de-
grees early Wednesday morning.
A cold front is expected to move into
northwest Florida, followed by a cold air
mass from Canada.
"The air coming behind the cold front is
going to be even colder because of where


it's coming from," said Phil Peterson, a fore-
caster for the National Weather Service in
Jacksonville.
The previous record cold for April 8 was
in 2007, with a morning temperature of 35
degrees, according to the National Weather
Service Web site.
Gainesville has already experienced re-
cord heat, a dry spell and record rainfall this
year, Peterson said.
"The whole year has been very strange,"


"At this time, we're at
Mother Nature's hand."
Frankie Hall
Director, Agriculture Policy Division of the
Federal Farm Bureau Federation

he said.
Frankie Hall, the director of the agricul-
ture policy division of the Federal Farm Bu-
reau Federation, said some vegetables like


watermelon, peppers and green beans might
be damaged by the cold weather.
"A late frost could hurt these tender
crops," Hall said.
Farmers in North Florida do not have irri-
gation systems that farmers in South Florida
have, which also can be used to blanket the
crops with ice to protect them from freezing.
"At this time, we're at Mother Nature's
hand," he said. "We just hope and pray that
it is not as bad as they predicted it to be."


Oral representations cannot be relied upon as correctly stating representations of the developer. For correct representations, make
reference to the documents required by section 718.503. Florida Statutes, to be furnished by a developer to a buyer or lessee.

As part of the adoption, the vessel will host

"She will be a welcome asset for Sector

UF partnership tests car powered by household electrical outlet


Fluctuating gas prices and environmental
concerns are leading many to electric-
powered cars, and a new University of
Florida partnership hopes to find out if it's
really a cleaner, cheaper and more reliable
choice.
UF Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences Extension researcher Pierce Jones
is working with North Carolina-based
companies Progress Energy, Advanced
Energy and Duke Energy to test a Toyota
Prius modified to use electricity delivered
through a regular household electrical
outlet.
"This isn't a new idea, but it is one that
now has to be closely examined because
it's likely to be a reality in just a few years,"
said Jones, who is participating in the re-
search as part of UF's Program for Resource
Efficient Communities. "There are a lot of
questions to be asked and a lot of details
that have to be ironed out beforehand."
The UF car is one of 12 that have been
deployed throughout Florida and North
Carolina. The researchers involved are
charting basic use patterns, such as how
much gasoline and electricity is consumed.
Similar vehicles are able to travel more than
100 miles on a gallon of gas.
Perhaps more importantly, though, the

test plug-in electric hybrid cars. The
project is designed to show that such
cars need not be a burden on already
taxed electrical grids.
project also seeks to show that electric cars
won't overburden local electrical grids. For
years, the largely unspoken concern about


electric cars is that they could become a
victim of their own success. Too many elec-
tric cars plugged in at the same time, some
worry, could cause power failures.
The hybrid is equipped with smart-
charging hardware that moderates the time
and pacing of the charging. Additionally,
the car will be tested with a technology-
dubbed Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) functional-
ity.
V2G allows the car's charging system
to synch with the local electrical grid. Not
only does this stop the car from drawing on
an overtaxed grid it also could contribute
small amounts of electricity (for which
the operator would be reimbursed) back
in-thus helping the entire electrical grid
become more reliable.
The project also will document drivers'
patterns to help determine how charging
stations and billing should be implement-
ed.
"It used to be that electric vehicles
were rare, but I think they're going to be
here before we know it," Jones said. "That
means that we've got to figure out the
tricky details of how they're really going to
work so we can make the best use of this
new technology."

The damage to the house was
estimated to be $200 or less, mak-
ing it a second-degree misdemean-
or, he said. UPD would likely up-
grade the charge to make it a hate
crime, he said, which would bump
up the charge to a first-degree mis-
demeanor, punishable by up to one
year in prison and a $1,000 fine.
"We're taking this very serious-
ly," said Alex Mehler, a member of
the fraternity.
"This was a hate crime," Mehler
said. "An act of anti-Semitism."


He said the fraternity is trying
to make people in the community
aware of the incident to prevent
similar things from happening in

Matt Friedman, who became the

offering her support.
"It is unfortunate such an act
of vandalism, particularly with a
symbol which has come to stand
for hate and reminds us of one of
the greatest tragedies of human
history, occurred on the University
of Florida campus," she wrote.
The Anti-Defamation League,
which fights anti-Semitism, big-
otry and extremism, according to
its Web site, also issued a news re-
lease from its Florida branch con-
demning the incident.
Mehler said the fraternity plans

Luke Napoli, vice president of
neighboring Pi Lambda Phi Fra-
ternity, expressed disappointment
after walking out of his house's
kitchen Monday around noon and
seeing the spray-painted swastika.
"That's not cool," he said, add-
ing he doesn't think his fraternity
is responsible.
"Why would we put that up?"
he asked. "We have to look at it."
He didn't rule out the possibil-
ity entirely, though.

tions at work. He would have lost his job," she said. "But
when he came home, he took out those frustrations on
us.
Scott said another factor is that often the abused is fi-
nancially tethered to the abuser.
"That's why Mom stayed. She didn't think she had any
alternative because she couldn't afford to take care of six
children," she said.
Scott called abuse the silent killer, saying that victims
of abuse men, too, though less common than women
- are often reliant on their abusers for economic and emo-
tional stability and don't stand up for themselves.
"I am not one of those women. I would just not accept
it," she said. "But I got that way by seeing my mother beat-
en until she was unconscious and her teeth were knocked
out and her eyes were black."
Theresa Harrison, director of Peaceful Paths domestic
abuse shelter, said in the past year the organization has
seen a radical increase in the number of abuse victims
looking for help, especially those who need financial as-
sistance.
"(Abuse) tends to mirror what's going on in the greater
societal picture," she said. "The reason we're seeing on a
statewide level such a dramatic increase is that this reces-
sion has hit people harder than most of the external factors
we've seen in the last 15 years."
Harrison said it's important to realize that stress is not
an excuse.
"Ultimately, violent behavior is chosen behavior," she
said. "Despite the millions of people who are being im-
pacted by the recession every day, the majority of them
aren't engaging in violent behavior as a tactic to deal with
their stress."

UF GOLF

Women close in on season's first tournament win


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer

It looks like winning could be
on the horizon for the Gators.
After their first top-three finish
in their last tournament on March
25, the No. 30 UF women's golf
team put itself in position to repeat
the feat and possibly win their first
tournament of the year.
Monday, the team finished the
first two rounds of the Lady Gator
Invitational in third place with
a team score of 46 over par, just
three shots behind first-place Duke
and Alabama.


But the Gators aren't satisfied.
"It does feel good, but we all
had higher expectations," fresh-
man Andrea Watts said. "We
wanted to be leading this tourna-
ment going in to the last day."
Although no UF golfer had a
great round, three Gators finished
in the top 12 individually.
Watts had the lowest score of
the day for the team at 8 over par.
She was consistent and shot 4 over
par in each of the rounds Monday,
and she is tied for fifth overall.
Jessica Yadloczky finished the
day with a score of 10 over par. Al-
though her play was not as good as


usual, it was still good enough for
a share of the ninth-best individual
score.
The final piece of the trio was
freshman Evan
Jensen, who shot
11 over par Mon-
day. Despite a
tough first-round
score of 9 over
par, she bounced
back with a score
Watts of 2 over par in
the second round
and is in 12th place overall.
The success of Watts, Yadlocz-
ky and Jensen were reflected in the


team's score.
"We all put enough into con-
tributing to the team, and the more
we can help, the better we're off,"
Watts said.
With one more round to play
today, the Gators will start the day
just three shots behind first place.
Although this team has never
been so close to victory before, it
knows that only a tournament win
would be success.
"We've never been this close to
a win before," Watts said. "We can
all taste it, and we want it so bad."
MEN'S STRUGGLES CONTINUE: Just
when they thought it couldn't get


worse, it did.
The No. 5 UF men's golf team
fell to 14th place after a team score
of 26 over par in the second round
of the U.S. Collegiate Champion-
ship in Atlanta.
With a combined score of 34
over par over the first two rounds,
the Gators are 31 strokes behind
first-place Stanford.
None of the UF golfers has a
tournament score under par.
The closest is senior Billy
Horschel's score of 3 over par.
While he was 2 under par after the
first round, he struggled on Mon-
day with a score of 5 over par.

nings of work, and with a 7-run lead did not come
back out for the sixth. O'Sullivan sent Keating out to keep
the Commodores at bay and allow the Gators to leave
Nashville, Tenn., with a series win.
Keating's one-inning performance did not make a very
strong case to keep him in the rotation, as he allowed 3
runs and gave Vanderbilt hope in what appeared to be a
UF blowout. Vanderbilt went on to score another 11 runs
on its way to a 16-9 victory in the game and a 2-1 victory
in the series.

"(Keating is) just going through a tough time,
but he'll battle through it. He's a tough kid, and
he will get through it."

Meyer declines to comment on reports of failed drug test by former WR Harvin

didn't practice, as he's nursing a hamstring injury.
Starting linebackers Dustin Doe and A.J. Jones were
held out as well, but Meyer was buoyed by the return of
redshirt freshman linebacker Brendan Beal (knee) and de-
fensive end Carlos Dunlap (abdominal strain).
The offensive line is especially depleted. Mike and
Maurkice Pouncey, Carl Johnson, Matt Patchan and James
Wilson have all struggled with injuries, and Wilson rein-
jured his left foot Saturday.


"James is getting an MRI tonight," Meyer said. "He's
had some feet problems, and I don't know (his status).
He was doing very well before he got hurt, and the good
news is that even if it's something serious, he'll be fine in
the fall."
The only positive has been that new arrivals Nick Ala-
jajian and Jonotthan Harrison are getting plenty of reps
in practice as a result. The experience should help with
UF's lack of depth on the line, offensive coordinator Steve
Addazio said.
MEYER WON'T COMMENT ON HARVIN'S DRUG TEST: Last
week, a report on NFLDraftBible.com claimed that former


UF wideout Percy Harvin, along with two other players,
tested positive for marijuana at the NFL Scouting Com-
bine.
The report cited several sources, as well as an NFL
team, and Meyer refused to comment on the situation
Monday.
"I'm not going to comment on that other than that I
love Percy, and he has done a lot for our program," he
said. "I would just be shocked."
When asked if Harvin had ever failed a drug test while
at UF, Meyer said, "I'm not going to talk about guys (or)
stuff like that."

Keating in struggle to retain starting job


By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

At the start of the season, the Gators
had one sure thing in their starting rota-
tion, and that was their ace, Patrick Keat-
ing.
Now, he is struggling to hang on to a
spot in the starting rotation.
When UF (19-11) takes on Bethune-
Cookman (15-15) tonight at 6:30 in
Gainesville, Keating (2-3, 5.44 ERA) will
have another chance to get back on track,
and it may be his last.
He will take the mound at the start of

the game, but another poor outing could
send him out of the rotation for a while.
Following a bad start against Ala-
bama on March 29 Keating lasted just
3 1/3 innings and allowed 5 runs UF
coach Kevin O'Sullivan spoke about pos-
sible changes to the rotation and even ad-
dressed Keating's situation directly.
"I'm going to tell Patrick that he's go-
ing to be one of our guys," O'Sullivan
said. "He's just going through a tough
time, but he'll battle through it. He's a
tough kid, and he will get through it."
Throughout the week, O'Sullivan said
he had not decided on any changes to
the rotation, but his decision on whether

Keating would start the final game of the
series at Vanderbilt depended on how the
rest of the series went.
The Gators and the Commodores were
even at 1-1 after the first two games of
the series, and Keating had yet to throw
in a game. It should have been a lock for
O'Sullivan to turn to his preseason ace for
the deciding game in a conference match-
up.
Instead, O'Sullivan chose to go with
Stephen Locke, who was reinstated fewer
than two weeks ago after being kicked off
the team before the season began.
Locke allowed just 2 runs in five in-

Injury bug


strikes UF

in practice

By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmcall@alligator.org
So far in spring practice,
Gators are dropping like flies.
UF entered the spring with 18
players listed as limited or out,
and a few more names have been
tacked on to that list recently.
Freshman tight end Desmond
Parks suffered a sprained knee
in practice Monday, and he had
to be carted off the field. Before
Parks was driven away, coach Ur-
ban Meyer went over and spoke
with him to keep his spirits up.
"He's a young player with
eyes like saucers right now be-
tween academics and football,"
Meyer said. "He's a such a great
kid. I love that guy. It's not the
injury everyone gets hurt -
it's about how an athlete deals
with the injury. I grabbed him on
his way off and I'll go talk to him
again (after practice)."
The Gators already lack depth
at the position, where Parks is
the only viable backup for starter
Aaron Hernandez. If Parks' inju-
ry is serious, Meyer said he may
use fullbacks T.J. Pridemore and
Steven Wilks to fill the void be-
hind Hernandez.
"We might go without a tight
end," Meyer said. "We don't play
a tight end in tight. We play the
guy that moves around. Right
now, T.J. Pridemore has made
great strides, and Steve Wilks is
even showing a pulse. (New tight
ends coach) Brian White is doing
a great job with those guys be-
cause a week ago, it bordered on
comical."
Wide receiver David Nelson
sprained his right foot during
Saturday's scrimmage. He was
on crutches Monday, but Meyer
expects him to be fine. Fellow
wideout Deonte Thompson also
