Author discusses



end of civilization


Pulitzer Prize winning author Jared Diamond, right, answers audience questions, asked by moderator
Dean Jones, about the collapse of civilizations, during a speech at the Phillips Center for the Perform-
ing Arts on Thursday night.


* HE WAS PAID $40K TO
SPEAK THURSDAY NIGHT.

By HUNTER SIZEMORE

jhsizemore@alligator.org

Human society could cease to
exist in as few as 30 years, author
Jared Diamond said to about 1,600
Gainesville residents Thursday.
With this grim message, Dia-
mond offered a glimmer of hope.
With responsible use of resources,
there is no foreseeable end to soci-
ety, he said.
The author of "Collapse" and
"Guns, Germs and Steel," Diamond
spoke as the kickoff to UF's obser-
vance of Earth Month.
His works focus on how and why
civilizations rise and fall.


Diamond evaluates a society's
performance by five factors: envi-
ronmental, governmental, resource
use, friends and enemies.
The mysterious fall of civiliza-
tions such as Easter Island and the
Maya has captured Diamond's
imagination since he

In his speech, he
discussed factors that contribute to
human successes and failures, using
civilizations from around the world
and throughout history as case stud-
ies.
"There are experiments in social
science," he said. "Nature has al-
ready carried them out."
He originally planned to write 18
chapters, each dealing with a differ-

GPD to present $1.3M budget cut proposal to city

The Gainesville Police Depart-

meeting 5 percent budget cuts de-

Commission, GPD spokesman


Keith Kameg said.
GPD will propose a $1.3 mil-

April 16. Its annual budget is $30
million.
"Like every department in the
city, we don't want to lose one dol-

UF student activists discuss tuition hikes with Machen


By TATIANA GONZALEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF President Bernie Machen walked out-
side his office Thursday and perched himself
on a bench to discuss looming budget cuts and
tuition increases with Students for a Demo-
cratic Society.
About 10 SDS members sat inside Tigert
Hall in peaceful protest for about an hour.
"It's a game of chicken with careers and


education," Machen told protesters about the
state Legislature's unwillingness to take neces-
sary action, such as raising taxes.
An open dialogue between Machen and
SDS students began at about 12:30 p.m., half
an hour after members arrived and began de-
bating among themselves about alternative
solutions to UF's fiscal shortcomings.
Participants said theybelieve that, although
a slight tuition increase would be acceptable,
they'd prefer the state to increase income tax-
es, sales taxes or both.


"Tuition increases make education inacces-
sible and makes class divi-
sions," said Tina Steiger, a
UF political science senior
and member of SDS.
The group also support-
ed the 1-cent increase on
sales taxes during the next
three years being lobbied
Steiger for by the Florida Education
Association.
The extra money would benefit Florida


public education, Steiger said.
During the discussion, SDS informed Ma-
chen about a survey that said 77 percent of
Florida citizens would favor the sales tax in-
crease.
Machen said the state Legislature had its
own polls saying the majority of Floridians
were completely opposed to any tax increas-
es.
He said his management of UF's budget

Man hit by car after wife gets out to help
NEW PORT RICHEY (AP) Authorities say an elderly Tam-
pa Bay man died after being hit by his own car, which his wife had
not shifted to park.
The Florida Highway Patrol says 77-year-old John Anzalone
got out of the car shortly after noon on Wednesday and was walk-
ing toward a barber shop at a strip mall when he fell in the park-
ing lot. His wife, 72-year-old Patricia Anzalone, went to help him
but left the car in gear. The unoccupied vehicle moved forward
and hit her husband. The New Port Richey man was airlifted to
a hospital, where he later died. FHP is still investigating the inci-
dent and says charges are pending.

Local art show to


feature paintings,


marker drawings


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
kemmets@alligator.org

After Tom Miller's paintings
are sold, some are thrown down
the stairs.
Some are shot at. Some are
painted over by their owners.
Some are hung in frames. And
sometimes these paintings make
their way back to him, the local
artist and music maker said.
"I think it's pretty cool that
paintings, just like people, can
have a life and show evidence
that they've been around," he
said. Tonight, self-proclaimed
jack of all trades and master of
about three, Tom Miller, will
hold his first painting show in
over a decade.
At 8 p.m. at The Story House


on 11 S.E. Fifth Ave., Miller's
"Paintings and Dirty Little Magic
Marker Drawings" exhibit will
feature 10 paintings and 45 magic
marker drawings.
"The paintings are abstracts,
which come
Around rather quickly
Gainesville and have an
emotion con-
tent to them," Miller said. "Some
are whimsical and some are dark,
the same as my poetry."
Miller said the magic marker
drawings satisfy his filthy need
to freak out, entertain and make
people gawk, gasp and wonder.
When looking at his art, Miller
said people don't know whether
to leave, admire it, throw up or
look at the world differently.
Some of the paintings cost be-
tween $15 and $20, he said.


UF junior to spend $19K in 'Wheel' winnings on tuition


* HE ALSO WANTS TO THROW A
PARTY AND BUY A COMPUTER.

By ALEX CHACHKEVITCH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Though three months have passed, Scott
Sakowitz still can't believe it.
Sakowitz, a UF zoology junior, won $19,400
on an episode of "Wheel of Fortune," which
was shown on Wednesday night. The prize in-
cludes cash and a trip to Barbados for two.
The win came as a surprise to Sakowitz,


who considered the prize just the icing on the
cake to being on the show, which has a huge
applicant pool, he said.
"I just spun this giant wheel," he said.
"Many people don't stumble on that kind of
money without working."
Sakowitz, who is also a member of Alpha
Epsilon Pi Fraternity, said he plans to spend
a large portion of the money on dental school
tuition.
But, he said, he'll also use some of it for fun,
adding he plans to throw a party and buy a
new computer.
"I need to let myself enjoy it too," he said.


The money and vacation to Barbados will
be available starting in August, and the trip
expires next April, Sakowitz said. He doesn't
know who he'll invite to come with him yet.
"I think it's all luck."
Scott Sakowitz
UF zoology junior

Sakowitz tried to keep his win a secret until
the episode, which was taped on Dec. 15, was
aired.
He said at first he wanted his win to be a


surprise for everyone, but a lot of people be-
gan asking for the outcome, so he decided to
share the secret with those who really wanted
to know.
"I think it's all luck," he said of his win.
Sakowitz applied to be on the show during
summer and was invited to audition in Sep-
tember.
"I tried not to get my hopes up, though,"
he said.
When he found out he was chosen to be
on the show, he was excited to meet Pat Sajak,
adding he's been a huge fan of the show for a
while.

Local police officers involved in internal investigation


* REPORT: OFFICERS THREW
EGGS AT PASSERS-BY.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
kemmets@alligator.org

An internal investigation that
began in November ended in
written warnings given to three
Gainesville police officers for
harassing people and throwing
eggs.
GPD Officers Brett Robinson,


Billy Long and Joshua Hinson
drove through the Porter's Neigh-
borhood in Southwest Gainesville
near Depot Avenue. They were
intending to harass prostitutes
and drug dealers, as earlier re-
ported in the Gainesville Sun.
University Police Officer Keith
Smith was also involved.
On Nov. 2, while Robinson
was driving in the Porter's Neigh-
borhood with his roommate Di-
ego Ibanez and University Police
Officer Keith Smith, GPD Officer


Charles Owens stopped Robin-
son's car.
According to the report, when
Owens saw Robinson in the car,
he told the group to leave the
area.
On Nov. 8, Robinson, Ibanez,
Smith, and GPD Officer Billy
Long drove to downtown bars.
When returning from the
bars, Robinson drove the group
through the Porter's Neighbor-
hood.
Robinson stopped at intersec-


tions and waited for people who
were standing on the corner to
approach the car, the report stat-
ed.
According to the report, when
a person walked up, someone in
the car would say something to
them and Robinson would drive
off. The next day, Robinson,
Smith, Long and Ibanez met two
women at a downtown bar.
When driving home, Robin-
son directed the person who was
driving his truck through Porter's


Neighborhood.
The group stopped at differ-
ent street corners and threw eggs
from the bed of the pickup truck,
the report stated.
According to the report, Of-
ficer Owens saw the truck's cov-
ered license plate and pulled it
over. When Owens saw who was
in the truck, he again told them to
leave the area.
No victims or witnesses were
found and no property was dam-
aged, according to the report.


Leadership role earns UF student $30K Truman award


By AMANDA HINES
Alligator Contributing Writer

The passion Adam Amir fights with just
won him $30,000.
Amir, a 20-year-old UF junior, was
named a Truman Scholar for 2009 last
month.
He was one of two students attending a
Florida university to win the award, which
reflected his efforts in pursuing a career in
leadership and public service.
Sixty students in the U.S. received the
award overall.
"It legitimizes a lot of the thankless,
hard work throughout college," Amir said.
"It's one great figurative pat on the back."
Amir said two of his more prominent
leadership positions have included being
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender
cabinet affairs director for Student Gov-
ernment and serving as a district court in-


tern in Gainesville.
He also participated in four differ-
ent trips with Florida Alternative Breaks,
where he spent time doing community
service instead of vacationing.
Amir recalled leading a trip last year
to Nashville, Tenn., where he counseled
gay, bisexual and transgendered teenagers
from local schools.
He said personal growth from the trip
was rewarding.
"Conversations that we had with the
students were eye-opening," he said.
Amir is also a J. Wayne Reitz Scholar
and a Florida Opportunity Scholar, a
need-based award funding low-income,
first-generation and underrepresented mi-
norities at UF.
The award has given him more confi-
dence to continue his fight for the rights of
lesbians, gays, bisexual and transgendered
people, Amir said.
Ignited by the anti-gay environment in


his hometown of Coral Springs, Amir said
he inherited "a big mouth and confidence
you need to get involved in politics," from
his older sister, Morgan.
Amir said one of his favorite memories
at UF was working with the Obama cam-
paign and celebrating with
his best friends after the
votes had been counted.
Jeanna Mastrodicasa, as-
sistant vice president
for Student Affairs and
Gainesville City Com-
missioner, directs the J.
Amir Wayne Reitz Scholars
program and agreed that
Amir had a penchant for politics.
"Adam is an inspiring student with a
true passion for change," she wrote in an
e-mail. "He works hard to understand the
issues and how to make a difference."
She wrote Amir worked hard during
this year's local elections to ensure the

defeat of a discriminatory charter amend-
ment that would have, if passed, removed
protections from sexual orientation and
gender identity discrimination in the city.
Amir said he hasn't decided on the de-
tails but plans to attend law school after
graduating from UF as a political science
major.
He is also pursuing a history major fo-
cused on homosexuality in Nazi Germany,
a self-created program under history pro-
fessor Geoffrey Giles, a leading expert on
the issue, according to a UF news release.
Amir, who is Jewish, said he feels there
is an inherent sense of persecution and jus-
tice in America's history and culture.
"As a gay kid growing up, I noticed a
homophobic world around me," he said.
Other than fighting for equal civil
rights, Amir said another goal goes back
to family.
"I'm just trying to make my parents
proud of me," he said

Typically when the words "sports car," "tight comer" and
"going too fast" are paired in the same sentence, the results
tend to conjure imagery nothing short of horrific. For caus-

put that in perspective, we'd have to work somewhere in the
neighborhood of 8,800 days just to pay off the repairs.
Word out of Los Angeles reveals news of a woman who
seemingly struck gold but played the role of good Samaritan.

Last Saturday saw a worldwide pillow fight ranging from
locales like Wall Street to downtown Chicago minus the
state of Michigan. For breaking up what could have been the
most epic battle between individuals clad with pillows ever,
the Department of Darts & Laurels launches a don't-you-guys-

When we think of a church service, we tend to visualize
overcrowded pews stuffed to the gills with Holy-Rollers all
decked out in their Sunday's best not bar stools and rock

With April Fool's Day comes office hijinx ranging from

incorrectly informing rejected applicants that they had been

wanted to get some laughs, they should have just filled an un-
popular co-worker's cubicle to the brim with packing peanuts.
While a career in law enforcement means putting one's life
at risk during each shift, one of the many rewards include the
chance to save a man's life. The Department of Darts & Laurels
proudly presents a you-are-a-true-American-hero-even-if-you-

pulling a man out of a burning vehicle mere seconds before it
exploded. During a time in which news headlines overflow
with negativity, we can take solace in the fact that heartwarm-

That's it for the week. Play safe.

Superstitions, nerdy habits die hard


Last week, I came to an unexpected realization: I am
a superstitious tool. I've always dismissed super-
stition as worthless and irrelevant, and now I'm
as guilty as morons who still have rabbits' feet dangling
from their key chains.
I spent the end of last week just outside of Philadel-
phia (ugh...) for our club roller hockey team's national
tournament (No, we don't play in parking lots). While
packing for the extended weekend, I unwittingly gath-
ered a specific set of socks and boxers. Two days later,
while suiting up for our first game against the University
of Rhode Island, I realized the extent of my superstitious
loser-ness.
The same Bart Simpson boxers I had worn in every big
game the past three seasons. The same two pairs of crusty
socks, yellowed by the ungodly funk living in my skates.
I even put my equipment on in specific order: left skate,
right skate, tie the right, tie the left, left shin guard, right
shin guard, right elbow pad, left elbow pad. To coin a fa-
vorite phrase of one of my roommates, "Embarrassing."
To make matters worse, I began thinking about previ-
ous superstitious atrocities I have committed and there
were a lot of them. In the summer of 2004, I was playing
a tournament in Atlanta, Ga., and I only listened to two
songs the whole weekend: "Grand Illusion" by Styx and
"I Can Tell" by the 504 Boyz. I was named tournament
MVP, and rather than crediting myself or my teammates
for hard work, I gave the glory to my bizarre musical
tastes.
In one of my current classes, I have taken every test
sitting from the same seat. After acing the first exam, I
convinced myself the seat had good mojo, so I refuse to
sit anywhere else.


S How did I let this happen? At
what point did I disregard all logic
in favor of putting faith in special
underwear? What self-respecting
adult, young or old, believes in
playlists and inanimate objects
Adam Wynn rather than the Bible, science or his
letters@alligator.org own efforts?
I'll tell you because I'm not go-
ing down on this ship by myself.
First, the whole city of Detroit
are a bunch of superstitious turds. Red Wings fans throw
octopi onto the ice during playoff games because, back in
the 1950s, the Wings only needed to win eight games to
hoist the Stanley Cup. Eight games, eight tentacles. Sure,
back then that made a little sense, but now a team has to
win 16 games to be top dog. They still throw their slimy
sea creatures, though.
In basketball, dozens of players have perfected their
pre-foul-shot rituals, most notably Rip Hamilton. Even the
darling of international politics, President Barack Obama,
acts on superstition. During his campaign, Obama toted
around a lucky poker chip, an American eagle pin and a
small statue of the Monkey King. He also noticed that he
faired better in primaries and caucuses on days he played
basketball. Naturally, Obama balled on Nov. 4.
I'm a little ashamed of my nerdy habits, but most of us
probably have a few. Whether my superstitions actually
affect anything, I don't really know. What I do know is
that, come job-hunting time, I definitely will be wearing
my Bart Simpson boxers.

'Build World-Class Talent' will save higher education's future


Florida's legislators are wrestling with an unprecedent-
ed decline in general revenues. While some talk about
embracing Indian gaming as part of a solution, there's
a much higher-stakes game in play a game that risks the
future of Florida by dismantling badly needed state pro-
grams, including public higher education.
Make no mistake about it: Reductions under consider-
ation for higher education and other government programs
will severely damage our state's efforts to become a home
for talent and innovation. They will not only set back uni-
versities but also thwart the state's efforts to build a critical
mass of innovation for at least a generation to come.
Enterprise Florida, our state's primary organization de-
voted to statewide economic development, says, "Education
is the new bedrock for economic development. Skilled, edu-
cated talent at all levels ... is key to Florida's economic suc-
cess for high-wage jobs and innovation."
That's why "Build World-Class Talent" is Enterprise
Florida's top priority in its strategic "Roadmap to Florida's
Future."
Consider the words of University of Chicago economist
and Nobel laureate Robert Lucas, who maintains that "spill-
overs in knowledge that result from talent-clustering are the
main cause of economic growth" (The Atlantic, March 2009).
Where does talent cluster? Around universities with the re-
sources to support undergraduate, graduate and postdoc-


T.K. Wetherell & toral research and creativity.
The future of our state mapped
Robert Bradley out by Enterprise Florida and oth-
SpeakingOut ers lies in the generation of ideas.
The last decade has seen a shift and
surge in our state as Gov. Bush and key legislators worked
to attract Scripps and other named research centers. At the
same time, all universities have dramatically increased their
research activities.
The choices our legislators are facing can be summarized
in one overriding and important question: Would the im-
pact of dismantling state programs be worse for the future
of the state than the impact of increasing taxes on Floridians
during a recession?
The answer is not simple, because not all expenditures
made by the Legislature have the same impact, and not all
taxes affect economic prosperity the same way.
However, there are options that can go a long way toward
closing the state budget gap and retaining necessary services
for Florida's residents, including public higher education.
Consider the idea of a measured and temporary change
that raises the state sales tax one cent for the next three years.
A one-cent sales tax increase would reduce the budget cuts
by $3 billion.
Such an increase would barely affect individuals mak-
ing more than $100,000 a year. For those earning less than


$25,000, the impact would be about $150 per year. However,
the forthcoming federal tax cuts combined with the expen-
ditures that are part of the federal stimulus package would
offset that negative impact.
To grasp the nature of this impact, our legislators should
compare it with the alternative: deep cuts in government
services and state programs, such as public higher educa-
tion. These are priorities that the Legislature has debated
and repeatedly supported over the past decade.
Our efforts to build our state's economy through nurtur-
ing education, talent, innovation and creativity now hang in
the balance perhaps to be undone in the current budget.
And, if lost, that momentum is not easily regained. Failing
decisive action, Enterprise Florida's recommended route
could become the road not taken.
In the coming weeks, the Legislature will place its bet on
Florida's future.
We encourage our elected representatives to play the
odds-on favorite by following Enterprise Florida's economic
development strategy and supporting our public universi-
ties.
T.K. Wetherell is president of The Florida State University
and former Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives.
Robert Bradley is vice president for planning and programs at
Florida State and former director of the Florida Office of Planning
and Budgeting, Executive Office of the Governor.

Gay marriage victories serve as a step in the right direction


Well, America sure has been great
for these past two centuries.
I mean, we did some pretty
cool stuff.
We invented Coca-Cola. We pioneered
the reality show.
Hell, we've unleashed the dulcet tones of
The Backstreet Boys into the world. Yeah, it
was a great country for a while, but unfortu-
nately, it looks like it's time to go. Pack your
bags, folks, and I'll see all of you in Turkey.
Why are things as we know them coming
to an end? Why is it time for America to--as
the saying goes--pack it in? Gay marriage, of
course!
Yes, now that gay marriage has been le-
galized in Vermont and Iowa (in about a
one-week period) the total number of states
permitting same-sex marriages is up to four.
And, according to some, our great democ-
racy is about to plunge into a bedlam un-
equalled since Sodom.


I know it may
sound hard to be-
lieve and maybe even
painfully idiotic and
closed-minded, but,
rest assured--now
Eric Chianese that four states have
letters@alligator.org
legalized same-sex
marriage, it's only
a matter of time until people are legally al-
lowed to marry animals! Sounds bad, huh?
Well just wait until the next roll down the
"slippery slope." Soon, you're going to see
men marrying toasters and women marry-
ing rocking chairs.
I think it should be obvious to everyone
that if two people of the same gender who
love each other are allowed to spend their
lives together and call it "marriage" and re-
ceive the same benefits and rights to happi-
ness and--in some cases--misery as a hetero-
sexual couple, then clearly the End of Days


is upon us.
Yes, the Devil has his hooks in America,
but good. Gay marriage? Marriage is be-
tween a man and a woman! Any deviation
from that and you'd better put on your ga-
loshes, because as some French kings might
say, "After gay marriage, the deluge!"
Alright, as fun as it was to step temporar-
ily into the body of an arch-conservative, I'm
going to have to step right back out again for
reasons of sanity and decency.
I have to say, I'm very proud of Vermont
and Iowa.
These states mark the first legalizations
of same-sex marriage through legislative ac-
tion instead of court order, and this bodes
very well for gays, lesbians and--well--any-
one else who thinks it's only right and fair
that every person be treated equally in the
eyes of the law.
I know numerous people who are op-
posed to gay marriage, and I've never quite


been able to understand why. Essentially, I
hear either that "marriage is between a man
and a woman" or else that "God says it's
bad." Neither of these arguments strike a
chord with me.
Marriage is a word. When we're younger
we learn it's what two people do when they
love each other. Is it so intolerable for those
two people to have the same parts?
The God argument annoys me even more.
God is Love, right? You'd think he would be
a fan of this idea.
And that bit where the Bible says it's bad?
The Bible also says we should stone adulter-
ers and use the womenfolk of our enemies as
sex slaves, but we don't do that.
Good work, Vermont and Iowa. Way to
be trend-setters. Well, I'm not certain about
what happened in Guantanamo Bay, but at
least I hope we don't.

Student remembered for heart, outgoing personality


* SHE WAS A THIRD-YEAR
ARCHITECTURE MAJOR AT UF.

By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

UF student Starr Bishop was a straight-
shooter who loved the outdoors. She snow
skied and skydived. She even spoke out in
a town meeting against a proposed park-
ing garage that would block access to the St.
Johns River, which flows through Jackson-
ville, her hometown. It was an argument she
won.
So it wasn't surprising when she chose to
build a set of outdoor swings last fall as her
school project. Her goal was to push chil-
dren to play outside instead of watching a
TV screen.
Starr, a third-year architecture major,
completed her project before she died on
March 14 of Lou Gehrig's disease, which af-
fects the brain and spinal cord's nerve cells.
Meghan O'Reilly and Gail Milano, the UF
graduate students who helped Starr com-
plete her project last fall, hung the swings in


the architecture building's atrium to honor
her.
"She was so much more about continuing
on with life than being sick," O'Reilly said.
"She was so funny and talented."
In March 2008, Starr was diagnosed with
Lou Gehrig's Disease on Good Friday. She
was 20 years old.
She continued to attend UF, however.
As it progressed, the disease affected
Starr's ability to speak, swallow and, at
times, raise her arms. So in order to continue
work on her project, she hired O'Reilly and
Milano through UF's Disability Resource
Center to help.
Melody Bishop, Starr's mother,s said she
didn't even know Starr was working on the
project until she saw the private on-campus
studio O'Reilly and Milano built for Starr
during a visit to Gainesville.
"She never tooted her own horn," Bishop
said.
But Starr's project wasn't the only thing
Bishop was unaware of.
While Bishop said she knew her daughter
would always go out of her way to include
others, she has been overwhelmed by the


number of people who have e-mailed, called
and written letters describing how Starr im-
pacted their lives.
Bishop recalled a two-page letter written
by the father of a friend of Starr's who re-
counted the first time he met her during din-
ner with him and his daughter, who had just
moved to Gainesville.
"He was so impressed,"
Bishop said in a voice thick
with emotion, "He was so
impressed by her loving-
ness and kindness."
Jenny Sprunt, a friend
of Starr's, said the two
met freshman year of high
school, where they competed in science fairs
together.
"She had more personality in her pinky
finger than some people have in their whole
body," Sprunt said, adding Starr could be
friends with anyone.
"She was outgoing, bubbly and
sporty,"Sprunt said. "She was very honest.
She would tell you how it is, a real straight-
shooter."
Bishop agreed. She said when Starr was


young, she chastised her mother, who lost
her temper and was rude to a store clerk.
"She said, 'Mom, you weren't very nice
in there,'" Bishop said. "She always remem-
bered the right things to do."
By December, Starr's disease had become
so aggressive she had to move home to Jack-
sonville. However, because she could still
type, she remained enrolled by taking online
classes.
"She never gave up," Bishop said. "She
always wanted to be a student. She loved
Gainesville and the Gators."
Bishop added Starr was a football fan and
started attending Gator games with her fam-
ily when she was 2 years old.
Once Starr went into respiratory failure
on March 4, she was in a coma for 10 days
before her parent's chose to have her taken
off life support.
"She ended up donating her heart, both
lungs, liver and kidney," Bishop said.
"So somebody out there has a really great
heart."
UF's architecture department plans to
hold a memorial in honor of Starr later on in
the semester.


About 1,600 Gainesville residents attended the on-campus speech

ent collapse, but his wife convinced
him it would be too depressing,
he said. "One should also think
about the success and failures of
the future, so that we don't make
the same mistakes again," he said,
after explaining his view that soci-
eties must choose success.


Diamond pointed out that, for
instance, the collapse of Mayan
civilization was likely due to a
working-class revolution, brought
on by the king's disregard of envi-
ronmental problems.
As a resident of Los Angeles, he
believes that the same mistakes are
being made again today in Ameri-
ca, he said.


He referenced the two race ri-
ots in Los Angeles that happened
since he's lived there as a boiling
over of lower-class discontent with
upper-class rule.
On "Eventually, a gat-
Campus ed community cannot
keep the people out-
side the gates," he said.
After the event, a line of about


50 book-clutching audience mem-
bers snaked up the stairs of the
Phillips Center for the Perform-
ing Arts auditorium, waiting for
Diamond's autograph. Three of
Diamond's books were on sale in
the front room leading up to his
speech.
The speech was sponsored by
the Office of Sustainability, Soil


and Water Science Department,
Dean of Students Office, Water
Institute, Honors Program, Gators
for a Sustainable Campus and
School of Natural Resources and
Environment.
Diamond was paid $40,000 for
his lecture, plus expenses, said
Dedee DeLongpr6, director of the
Office of Sustainability.

"There will absolutely be

GPD has already started
cutting costs around the de-

believes the cost saving mea-
sures will help in 2010 when


the 5 percent budget cut may
be enacted.
For example, by replacing
8-year-old police cars with
more fuel efficient Dodge
Chargers, GPD will save
about $150,000 in gas.
To save on travel costs, of-
ficers also have stopped train-

"I've got to look at the reality of the situation," Machen said.
"And that's that the state Legislature won't raise taxes."
Before Machen left, members of SDS asked
him to continue fighting for them in Tallahas-
see.
"It's good to have an ally," said SDS member
and UF organic and sustainable crop produc-
tion senior Skeet Surrency, after the discussion,
"yet frustrating that we students have to take
the fall for the state's mismanagement."
Currency Surrency said that in the past, SDS has had
issues with serving food. Before Machen ar-
rived, SDS members tried to ladle out soup from a metal pot among
themselves, but were told they were not allowed, according to UF
spokeswoman Janine Sikes.

Women look to continue winning streak at home


* BOTH TENNIS TEAMS WILL
FACE ALABAMA, BUT THE
MEN WILL BE PLAYING ON
THE ROAD IN TUSCALOOSA.

By JOSEPH R. HOLZER
Alligator Writer

With everything it has en-
dured this spring, there is one
constant: The No. 21 UF women's
tennis team wins at home. Every
time.
That's good news for the
Gators (10-8, 4-4 Southeastern
Conference), as their final three
dual matches will be played
at Linder Stadium. That streak
starts with No. 26 Alabama today
at 3 p.m.
UF fell five spots in the rank-
ings after dropping two away
matches last weekend to LSU and
Arkansas. The match against the
Tigers marked the sixth time the
Gators were defeated 4-3.
They are coming home at just
the right time.
After a 15-0 start, No. 8 Marrit
Boonstra suffered back-to-back
defeats. The junior admittedly
feeds off the energy of the home
crowd.
The Crimson Tide's highest-
ranked player is Tiffany Welcher
at 105, which also bodes well for
Boonstra.
In doubles, Welcher and


Courtney McClane are No. 73.
Still, Alabama (13-5, 3-5 SEC)
is no pushover.
This is conference play, where
rivalry makes up for differences


in talent.
UF is tied for fourth in the SEC
East. A strong finish will keep
them close to the division's lead-
ers.


MEN FACE TIDE: The No. 10 UF
men's team will finish its season
on the road with hopes of being
a host to regionals in May. The
Gators (14-6, 5-3 SEC) play the

Weitzel and Clayton Pisani in the two middle-infield
positions until he finds a fit he likes. The foursome
has combined for 33 of the teams miscues.
"We got to catch the ball better," O'Sullivan said.
"If we don't play better defense, unfortunately, I can
assure you that it's going to be up and down."
The more extra outs UF gives opponents, the
harder it is for the Gators' pitchers.
O'Sullivan has named Jeff Barfield (2-0, 2.84 ERA)
tonight's starter and plans to use either Stephen

Locke or Nick Maronde, both lefties, on Saturday.
One of his main concerns was the number of pro-
ductive left-handed hitters on Auburn's roster, and
he will probably trot out whichever pitcher doesn't
start Game 2 on Sunday.


Waleszonia on track to return in postseason


SOFT, from page 22

the team's comeback.
Enea admitted how unusual
it was to dogpile after midseason
games, but she still wanted the
team to meet her at home plate.
"It's so funny because last sea-
son, we won to go to the World
Series, and we jumped up and
down like little 12-year-old girls
and didn't even dogpile," Enea
said. "We always make fun of
that. Then when Kelsey hit hers
and we dogpiled, we were like,
'We dogpiled against Mississippi
State but not to go to the World
Series."'
The Wildcats enter Friday's
doubleheader fresh off a come-
from-behind victory of their own.
Kentucky used back-to-back


home runs in the seventh inning
to top No. 12 Tennessee 6-5 on
Wednesday.
Kentucky also brings quality
pitching into the conference se-
ries. Freshman Chanda Bell has
struck out 193 batters in 149 in-
nings this season, comparable
to pitcher Stacey Nelson's 205
strikeouts in her 163 2/3 innings
of work. Bell also threw the first
no-hitter in school history earlier
this year.
If the Gators pull off another
dramatic victory on the road
this weekend, another dogpile
wouldn't be much of a surprise
considering the emotion this team
has displayed in the last week.
"It's awesome. I don't even
know if they're doing it on pur-
pose. You can't fake passion,"


Walton said.
WALESZONIA'S RECOVERY 'ON
SCHEDULE': Center fielder Kim
Waleszonia, who has missed the
last 24 games with a tibial pla-
teau fracture in
her left leg, was
wearing her
usual No. 5 jer-
sey for Wednes-
day night's
game against
FSU. Walton
Waleszonia said her recov-
ery is "right on
schedule," and he hopes to have
her back for the postseason.
"She's exactly where she needs
to be," Walton said. "The goal all
along was postseason. We're not
going to push much earlier than at
least senior weekend (May 2-3)."


BRIAN, from page 22

les tendon. That was just the
final blow. Before that, the
Gators saw Nicole Ellis, Kailey
Tissue and Rebekah Zaiser all
on the sidelines. They waved
goodbye to Alicia Goodwin,
too. For the first time in a long,
long time, you'd expect there
to be more ice, heating pads
and crutches in practice than
smiles, perfect landings and
pointed toes.
So excuse them if they don't
make history as NCAA cham-
pions. Where would the UF
men's basketball team have
been four years ago without
Joakim Noah?
Not that the gymnasts care
about any of this. After those
injuries, they had some of their
best practices, and a fragment-
ed team on the training table
morphed to a cohesive unit in
the gym.
"We're doing even better
with what we have than we
would be doing with every-
body healthy," Hartung said.
"When you're dealt hard,
tough times, you work harder
and pull yourself together
more as a team. If you focus on
the bad things, then bad things
are going to come. ... I think
if any other team was in this


No. 15 Crimson Tide in Tusca-
loosa, Ala., today at 4 p.m.
Carlos Cueto, hot off a win
against No. 13 Blake Strode in
UF's shutout of Arkansas last
weekend, said he is feeling better
physically and has regained his
confidence. The No. 27 singles
player will need both against
Alabama's Saketh Myneni, who
is No. 34.
Gators coach Andy Jackson
believes Cueto responded well
in defeating Blake after the fresh-
man's loss in his rematch with
LSU's Michael
Venus.
Jackson said
doubles are also
doing well in
setting the paces
of the matches.
The No. 17 duo
Jackson of Antoine Ben-
neteau and Joey Burkhardt will
likely face No. 35 Ricky Dover-
spike and Mathieu Thibaudeau.
Burkhardt, like Cueto, feels ev-
erything is going right with his
game and said going on the road
against three top-30 teams were
each just another match.
The businesslike approach
was echoed by Jackson.
"We've played a lot of match-
es on the road and mutual courts
against top-25 teams, so we're not
really going to be scared about
it," Jackson said.


situation, they wouldn't have
come this far."
Maybe not. But who cares
if another team would have? It
doesn't matter. That's because
we have no reason to tell a
group of individuals who have
seen a third of their group get
hurt that they haven't achieved
success.
"We're never going to settle
for giving up," junior Melanie
Sinclair said. "We're never
going to stop pushing. We're
never going to be seen as the
weak team. That's not us."
It could have been, though.
"This team, mentally, is
stronger right now than we
were the last three years be-
cause they've had to deal with
so much adversity," UF coach
Rhonda Faehn said. "They
had to either fight, or they
would've died and given up.
They did not do that."
This time, success really
isn't going to be shown in the
standings. If you see a mem-
ber of the gymnastics team in
a week and a half on campus,
and she's smiling, then the
team succeeded. With how
these past few weeks have
gone, it won't be surprising to
see some goofy grins on their
faces. In this case, victory can
be seen on a face and not in a
box score.

Gators look to improve


road record against Tigers


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

If earning the team's first
Southeastern Conference
road victory against Vander-
bilt was learning to walk, then
a series win in Auburn this
weekend will be learning to
run for UF.
After a pair of midweek
home wins against Bethune-
Cookman and Central Flori-
da, the Gators (21-11, 7-5 SEC)
will take their 1-5 conference
record on the road to Plains-
man Park to take on the Tigers
(22-10, 6-6 SEC) in a three-
game set.
"Any SEC weekend is
big," senior Avery Bares
said. "And we have a little bit
of making up to do after last
weekend."
The Gators are 3-7 away
from Gainesville this season,
including a 3-0 loss to North
Florida in Jacksonville, but
Auburn may be just the place


to get on track.
The Tigers are 16-6 at
home, including two losses to
Elon, and only two of those 16
wins have come against SEC
opponents.
"At some point this
season, we have to
learn to play on the
road."
Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach

"I don't want it to be any
more important this week-
end then the next," UF coach
Kevin O'Sullivan said in an
SEC teleconference on Thurs-
day. "They're all important.
At some point this season, we
have to learn to play on the
road."
The biggest challenge for
UF will be holding Auburn's
high-powered offense in
check. Five hitters on the Ti-
gers' roster have eight or more
home runs, and no starter has


less than three bombs on the
season.
By comparison, freshman
Preston Tucker leads the
Gators with seven round-trip-
pers, and six of those came in
his last three games. UF's of-
fense, which has averaged 9
runs in the last nine games,
has been nothing to scoff at
lately and is lead by a potent
top of the order.
The No. 1 through 5 batters
are hitting .337 for the season
and have a combined on-base
percentage of just over .430.
The task of holding down
the Tigers' offense falls as
much on the infield defense
as it does on the pitching staff.
The Gators' team ERA is 3.82,
but they are allowing 5 runs
per game because so many
of the opposing teams' scores
have been unearned. UF has
made 52 errors on the season,
and all but two of them have
come in the infield.
O'Sullivan said he plans

UF's Josh Adams has helped lead the Gators' recently surging offense. But he has
committed a team-high 13 errors in the infield this season.


Dogpiling UF faces 'Cats


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

When the UF softball team beat Cali-
fornia to advance to the Women's Col-
lege World Series last season, the players
didn't properly celebrate the occasion
on the field. Coach Tim Walton said his
team didn't know what to do after the
4-2 victory.
After two walk-off home runs at
home in the last week, the Gators have
found their preferred method of on-field
celebration: the dogpile.
The simple act of team camaraderie,
first displayed Saturday after Kelsey
Bruder's walk-off grand slam against
Mississippi State, impressed Walton
more than anything his team has done
on the field all year.
"As many games as I've coached
here, Saturday was the first time we've
ever executed a dogpile and executed

what looked and appeared to be a lot of
fun," Walton said. "Kelsey hitting that
grand slam on Saturday kind of gave us
a shot in the arm and fired everybody
up. I was more excited about the dogpile
than I was about any of the wins we've
had this year."
The No. 1 Gators
(40-3, 18-1 Southeast-
ern Conference) will
look to take that en-
ergy to Lexington,
Ky., where they will
take on the Wildcats
Enea (24-13, 7-8 SEC) in a
three-game series, starting with a dou-
bleheader today at 4 p.m.
UF capped its 4-3 walk-off win
against FSU on Wednesday with an-
other dogpile at home plate, this time
on top of left fielder Francesca Enea,
whose solo shot to left field completed

Success doesn't depend on title

I'm just of average intelligence.
You don't know either, and there's a
good chance you're smarter than I am.
Only 16 people in the world know.
They're the athletes and coaches of the UF
gymnastics team.
If the Gators advance to the Super Six at
the NCAA Championships in one week as
the rankings predict them to, nobody out-
side of the team can evaluate their success.
If they become the fifth team ever to win
an NCAA title, great. If they bow out on
Day 1 and don't even advance to the Super
Six finale, it's up to them to measure their
level of disappointment for not winning.
But it's also up to them to measure their
pride for making it as far as they have with
one-third of their team on injured reserve.
When UF opened its season against
Oklahoma about three months ago, this


wasn't the case.

Moody gets comfortable with offense during spring


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

Two years after escaping a con-
gested backfield at Southern Cali-
fornia, Emmanuel Moody is in fa-
miliar territory.
Moody transferred to UF hoping
to become the Gators' every-down
back, but injuries and a slew of tal-
ented teammates have him fighting
for playing time.
From the beginning, Moody
had concerns about whether or not
he would be able to fit into UF's
spread offense.
"Coming in here, that's definite-
ly one thing I had on my mind,"
Moody said. "But sitting down
with coach Meyer and the other
coaches, they were just telling me,
'If we have a back that can do it, we
will do it.'"
While the 6 foot, 210-pound
Moody spent his time in and out
of the lineup during UF's national-
championship run last season, the
smaller, quicker Chris Rainey and
Jeff Demps combined for 11 touch-
downs and nearly 1,300 yards.
Moody rushed for 417 yards
and a touchdown in 2008, but most
of his carries came well after games
were in hand.
Moody said he spent the off-
season with his playbook and has
eased concerns coaches once had
about his knowledge of the offen-
sive schemes.
"Right now, I feel real comfort-
able with the offense and real com-
fortable with the coaches," he said.
With Demps opting to forgo the


rest of spring practice to focus on
track, Moody hopes he can start to
win over the coaching staff.
"Trust is simply consistency,"
Moody said. "It's to be consistent
every day about not having one
good day and then sucking the next
day. (It's about) day in and day out,
being consistent and having a good
attitude and showing the coaches
that you're here to play."
Running backs coach Kenny
Carter said Moody is playing with
a new mentality this spring and
that he's running the ball with more
confidence than he did a year ago.
"The thing that
happened to him
from the end of
the season to now
coming into the
spring is he has
really bought into
What we're trying
Carter to do in our sys-
tem," Carter said.
"He understands what we're doing,
and he's more comfortable. We ex-
pect him to really take off now and
be the guy that we expected him to
be when he transferred here."
With the departure of playmak-
er Percy Harvin and the addition
of under-center I-formation pack-
ages to the offense this spring -
which may not make it to the fall
- Moody might be seeing more of
the ball in the future.
"It means a lot to him (to be the
No. 1 running back)," Carter said.
"And you can see it in the way he's
playing."
Moody rushed for 459 yards on
79 carries for two touchdowns in

day afternoon.


just 9 games in his lone season with
the Trojans.
"Could he be that guy? Abso-
lutely," UF coach Urban Meyer
said. "But that means pass protec-
tion. That means every day. We


haven't seen that yet."
Moody was a Parade All-Amer-
ican in high school and named the
Pacific-10 Conference Offensive
Freshman of the Year in 2006 before
transferring to UF.


"All I can handle is what I can
handle," Moody said.
"All I can control is my attitude.
I try to just be positive and have a
good attitude about the situation
I'm in."
