Flooding may persist


* TWO CASUALTIES
WERE CONFIRMED AS OF
MONDAY MORNING.

By ALEX CHACHKEVITCH
Alligator Writer

Historic flooding is forcing
people to evacuate their hous-
es in Alachua County and the
rest of northern Florida.
Experts say that rainfall
might cause water levels in
rivers such as the Suwannee
and Santa Fe to rise further af-
ter two weeks of flooding.
"You're not going to have
water running down the streets
of Gainesville," said Karen
Parker, public information co-


ordinator for the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission. "But folks living
by the river will definitely be
affected."

"You're not going to
have water running
down the streets of
Gainesville."
Karen Parker
FWC spokeswoman


Right now the water is re-
ceding, she said, but fallen tree
branches and trash, combined
with strong currents, could
make boating dangerous.
Until conditions improve,


the Suwannee and Santa Fe
rivers are idle-speed zones.
Parker said the information
on how much money will be
spent on the recovery and the
extent of the damage won't be
completely assessed until the
water recedes, and that may
take days depending on the
weather, temperature and
evaporation speed.
There's also flooding in
other parts of north Florida.
As of Monday morning,
there were two confirmed ca-
sualties in Okaloosa County.
About 125 homes were de-
stroyed and about 100 severe-
ly damaged, said Mike Stone,
spokesman for the Florida Di-

SG launches budget blog


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

Student Government joined the blogosphere
on Monday.
The new SG budget-cut blog allows UF
students to discuss topics and share concerns
about the round of budget cuts affecting UF's
colleges.
Jordan Johnson, who will be taking over as
UF's Student Body president in May, said the
blog was created to ensure that students' input
on the matter is heard.
Johnson said he plans to take student con-
cerns expressed in the posts to a meeting with
UF President Bernie Machen, although the
meeting has not been scheduled yet.
"It makes (Machen's) job easier when he un-


derstands the students' needs," Johnson said.
Johnson said he doesn't feel the Web site
was launched too late because since the cut
proposals were not announced until recently,
students have been unaware of what programs
were in danger of getting
Student sliced.
Government "This is the point were
Student Government has
to make sure students' voices are heard," he
said.
However, Johnson said the blog still needs
some improvements.
"We still have some kinks that aren't worked
out," he said, adding that categories with sec-
tions for each college will make it more user

UF FACULTY

UF uses budget to justify prof's increased courseload


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

An independent arbitrator has ruled that
UF did not violate its contract with the faculty
union when it increased the teaching load of
Florence Babb, professor of women's studies
at UF, according to insidehighered.com.
Babb, an endowed professor and gradu-


ate coordinator of UF's Center for Women's
Studies and Gender Research, challenged the
change to her schedule last April. An arbitra-
tion hearing was held in February.
According to Alligator archives, Babb
received a letter in 2004 detailing the terms
of her hire. It indicated she would teach one
course per semester and would be given a re-
search assistant.
Endowed faculty often have lighter teach-


ing loads in order to focus
on research.
In March, a letter from
UF Provost Joe Glover in-
formed her she would be
teaching two classes per se-
mester because of the state's
financial difficulties and
Babb 1"severe" budget cuts at UF.
Her research assistant was taken away as


well, according to Alligator archives.
John Biro, president of UF's chapter of the
United Faculty of Florida, the faculty union,
said the decision could diminish the confi-
dence that faculty have in their agreements
with UF.
Glover could not be reached by e-mail late
Monday afternoon and Babb declined to com-
ment. A copy of the arbitrator's decision could
not be obtained on Monday from UF.

State seeks death penalty in Anthony case
ORLANDO (AP) Florida prosecutors
plan to seek to the death penalty against the
mother of slain Florida toddler Caylee An-
thony.
Prosecutors filed papers Monday of intent
to seek to have 23-year-old Casey Anthony
executed if she is convicted of first-degree
murder in her daughter's death, said Danielle
Tavernier, a spokeswoman for the State Attor-
ney's Office in Orlando.
Anthony claims that Caylee, who was 2


years old when she disappeared in June, was
kidnapped and has pleaded not guilty. Her
trial has been tentatively set for October.
Anthony's legal team already has lawyers
who are qualified to defend death penalty cas-
es and are prepared "for a vigorous defense,"
said Marti Mackenzie, a spokeswoman for An-
thony's attorney, Jose Baez.
"This is not a death penalty case," Macken-
zie said. "We will do whatever is necessary to
defend Casey Anthony from the state trying to
take her life."

Policymaker discusses future of health care in U.S.


By TATIANA GONZALEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Future health care reform in the United
States will emphasize cost-effective treatment,
upping health insurance requirements and
healthy habits for citizens, according to Kris-
tine Blackwood.
Blackwood, chief counsel for the U.S. Sen-
ate special committee on aging, spoke to an
audience of about 100 in the Pugh Hall Ocora
Monday night about proposed health care re-
form initiatives being discussed in Congress.
"These reforms are going to touch your
life, even if you're a student," Blackwood said,


citing initiatives such as wellness programs
and pushing generic drugs over brand-name
counterparts.
According to Blackwood, Congress has
created broad concepts for health care re-
form, such as requiring all Americans to have
health insurance and requiring nearly all busi-
ness owners to provide some sort of coverage,
based on the size of their work force.
Congress, along with the Obama admin-
istration, is determined to succeed where the
Clinton administration failed, she said. Un-
like 1992, Blackwood said, today's health care
reform process will be more transparent and
already has private insurance companies in on


the discussion.
"There's a sense of guarded optimism in
Washington right now," she said, adding the
legislation will likely be cre-
ated this summer and fall.
In a 20-minute question-
and-answer session follow-
ing the 40-minute speech,
one student pointed to the
national debt and asked
whether the administra-
Blackwood tion was worried about ris-
ing inflation, and if citizens
would have to bring "wheel-barrows of mon-
ey" to see their doctor in the coming years.


In response, Blackwood said members of
Congress have to invest money in the health
care reforms in order to create a healthy econ-
omy in the future.
"We'll keep paying more if we don't fix it
now," she said, "We have to take control of the
cost monster."
UF sophomore Matthew Newman, who
attended the event, said the talk was a little re-
dundant given his personal political aptitude.
"The stuff I didn't know was insightful and
did give a unique perspective," he added.
Blackwood's speech was sponsored by the
Bob Graham Center for Public Service and
paid for by the U.S. Senate.

STUDENT LIFE

Student-run online mag works to put out print edition


By ASHLEY HEMMY
Alligator Contributing Writer
In an age when publications are
struggling to make the switch from
print to online, one online magazine
is working on finally making it to
print.
BlackListed, a student-run maga-
zine released only on the Internet,
hopes to have its first printed issue
by the end of the spring semester.
The staff hopes the move to print
will help increase readership on


campus, said staff writer and UF
freshman Alisa Valentin.
The magazine has been around
since 2003 and serves as a voice for
African-Americans and other minor-
ities at UF. Every Tuesday, the staff
adds at least five articles to the pub-
lication's Web site, said staff writer
and UF freshman Ayana Flewellen.
All 11 staff writers also take pho-
tos and edit, said staff writer Brianti
Downing, a UF journalism junior.
They've tried to keep up with recent
technology by introducing video


"[The site is] easy to up-
date, get access to and
reach a larger audience."
Cayla Williams
BlackListed staff writer
UF public relations freshman

and sound to their Web site.
For now, readership mainly
consists of Gainesville residents,
but there are readers at local high
schools, The Florida State Univer-


sity and Florida Agricultural and
Mechanic University.
One article about college stu-
dents' fascination with Greek life
reached readers as far as the state of
Washington.
"Being online is so useful," said
staff writer Cayla Williams, a UF
public relations freshman. "It's easy
to update, get access to and reach a
larger audience."
The transition to paper, however,
has proven to be difficult, Flewellen
said, because it's harder to find will-


ing advertisers.
The staff must also learn to
change from online writing to print
writing. Their articles are not short
stories written in Associated Press
style, used by most news publica-
tions. Flewellen said their articles
sometimes reach more than a thou-
sand words.
"BlackListed is a way to be cre-
ative," Valentin said. "It's fun creat-
ing our own style."
The magazine can be viewed at
www.blacklistedmag.com.


Potential builders say there's nothing sexy about zoning


* STORE OWNERS HAVING TROUBLE
FINDING BUSINESS LOCATIONS.

Sexually oriented businesses are having
trouble finding legal places to open shop in
Gainesville, which could pose problems for
the city.


On Monday, the Gainesville City Com-
mission consulted Eric Kelly, a land zoning
expert, on how to meet the constitutional re-
quirement to provide proper zoning for all
types of businesses.
In the past six months, the prospective
owners of an adult bookstore and a "gentle-
man's club" contacted the city with concerns


about a lack of proper zoning, said Ralph
Hilliard, the city's planning manager.
If a sexually oriented busi-
Local ness were to challenge the con-
News stitutionality of Gainesville's
zoning ordinances, they may
be able to place a shop in areas undesirable
to the Gainesville City Commission, Kelly


said.
"Essentially, an unconstitutional zoning
ordinance is like having no ordinance at all
in Gainesville," Kelly said.
The Commission will likely not meet
on the issue again for several months, said
Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa.

New ice cream shop serves up frozen vegan treats


By HUNTER SIZEMORE
Alligator Writer
jhsizemore@alligator.org

Trippple Chocolate Threat,
Dreamsicle, Fair Trade Green Tea
and Peach Cobbler. Karma Kream,
a locally owned ice cream shop,
will be serving up these flavors of
vegan ice cream along with seven
others starting today. The shop
also serves coffee, baked goods
and dairy-based ice cream.
"Gainesville is a pretty progres-
sive place. But it's hard to find a
good vegan dessert place in this
town," said Kyle Fick, co-owner of
Karma Kream. "We just assessed a
need and filled it."
Fick and co-owner Payal Pa-
tel, have been readying the shop
for roughly a year. When they
began renting, they had "watch
this space" painted on the shop's
window, six months later it was
changed to "patience, we're still at
it."
The shop is furnished with 100
percent reused or recycled mate-
rial, much of which came from an
old Baskin Robbins, Patel said.


A painting of a tree laden with
ice-cream cones decorates one
tabletop, and multi-colored lamp-
shades hang from the ceiling, all
hand-painted.
A small cup of ice cream costs
$3.40 a medium is $4.20 and a
large is $4.90.
"Gainesville is a pretty
progressive place. But it's
hard to find a good vegan
dessert place in this town."
Kyle Fick
Co-owner of Karma Kream

"I can't even finish a small,"
Fick said.
Fick, a vegetarian, and Patel,
a vegan, both say they have thor-
oughly researched foods for their
own diets, which translates to an
awareness of all the ingredients
used in Karma Kream's products.
They are careful to make sure
their organic milk does not come
from factory farming, which is
cruel to animals, Fick said.
Karma Kream is located at 1025
W. University Ave.

Paul Duval, meteorologist in charge

inches of rainfall are expected in some
places today, possibly causing more
flooding.

tween County Road 255 and Interstate

friendly.
UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said the
UF Faculty Senate launched a similar blog.
"It's to encourage discussion and trans-
parency," she said. "It joins together a
whole lot of budget news from across the
state."
Sikes said Machen's budget proposal
will be posted on SG's budget blog on
Thursday.


UF religion senior Tom Reynolds, who
was the site's first blogger, said he was glad
to see SG take a proactive approach on the
issue, but is unsure the impact it will have
on administration.
Student "Student Govern-
Gvernmment ment doesn't wield any
real power, but they can
make (student opinion) known to the ad-
ministration," he said. "The Student Body
president has a very powerful role on the
Board of Trustees, and he should be con-
cerned with representing the students."

Justice Served

Navy SEALs save captain

from Somali pirates
The most special Easter Sunday of Capt. Richard Phil-
lips' life had nothing to do with the typical holiday fare
of oversized chocolate bunnies or a plethora of purple
Peeps.
He regained his freedom.
Thanks to the heroic efforts of three U.S. Navy SEALs, spe-
cially trained to deal with hostage situations, Phillips man-
aged to escape from the control of three Somali pirates on
Sunday evening.
With a shot to the head of each of the pirates, the SEALs
were able to secure Phillips and bring to an end a particularly
tenuous situation that had dragged on for the better part of
a week.
According to an article on CNN.com, hostage negotiations
had come to a standstill between the U.S. military and the pi-
rates forcing the hand of President Barack Obama to autho-
rize lethal force if Phillips' safety became a major concern.
Since the pirates threatened Phillips' life on numerous
occasions, even pointing an AK-47 assault rifle at him, the
SEALs were forced to seize an opportunity in which the cap-
tors exposed parts of their body, making sniper fire a pos-
sibility.
The Editorial Board commends the U.S. military, specifi-
cally the U.S. Navy SEALs, for its impressive response to the
hostage situation off the coast of Somalia.
Not only did the SEALs manage to save Phillips from a
possible death--they were able to avoid a bloody massacre
through three highly executed sniper shots to the head.
Lest we forget to applaud Phillips, whose mental resolve
and determination to stay alive exhibited outstanding charac-
ter during what we can only imagine was an extraordinarily
horrific ordeal.


Flight of Fright


For the typical American,
Easter Sunday means
a rat race of extended
church services, marathon
meals with relatives and or-
ganizing an egg hunt but
hardly landing airplanes.
Unless, of course, you
happen to be a passenger on
a flight where your pilot just
died.
What started out as a
typical Sunday trek from
Marco Island to Jackson,
Miss., quickly turned into
a nightmare once it became
apparent Capt. Joe Cabuk
was no longer in control of
the plane.
Lucky for the passengers
on board, one individual of-
fered them a chance of sur-
vival.
While Doug White had
basic flying experience with
single-engine planes, he was
forced to quickly learn on the
job how to maneuver a much
larger King Air plane with


the only assistance coming
from over a headset
Miraculously White,
whose name was initially
not made available to media,
defied all logic by landing
the plane on his first try at
Southwest International Air-
port in Fort Myers.
The Editorial Board com-
mends passenger-turned-
pilot White for managing
to escape disaster with his
presence of mind in taking
over the reins of the plane.
Not only does White de-
serve much due credit for his
heroic efforts in the cockpit,
but the air traffic controllers
in Miami should be scored
with a clutch assist.
Maybe it's just us, but we
think White and his fam-
ily will gladly deal with the
misery of flying commercial
on their next plane trip.
The prospects of one inch
in knee space never sounded
so enticing.

Column

Somali pirates up to snuff with Web 2.0


he American media worked themselves into such
a frenzied pirate orgy over the long Easter week-
end that they forgot to check and see if the actual
pirates had something to say.
During the press conference explaining just how the
Navy SEALs rescued Capt. Richard Phillips, CNN and
Fox spent valuable airtime reading user comments post-
ed on their Web sites by random, excited idiots.
Other than the shadowy newsworthiness of highlight-
ing the plague of grammatical abortions that make up a
vast majority of Web 2.0 blogs and posts, this wasted TV
time only confirmed my sneaking suspicion that abso-
lutely nobody with an active wireless connection has any
idea that the word "their" is not interchangeable with the
word "they're."
Instead of reading about how prayerful and happy
everybody was that the captain was rescued, the news
stations could have been following the Web 2.0 trail left
by one of the actual pirates.
Captured pirate Mohamed Abdi is a 16-year-old boy
with a cell phone. You think he doesn't have a MySpace
account?
Well, Abdi who prefers to be called "Dirty Mo" or
by his Twitter handle "pirate_eyes" reportedly quit us-
ing MySpace a few months ago because the site took too
long to load pages on his iPhone. His main communica-
tion outlet during the hostage standoff was on Twitter,
where Mo apparently sent a bunch of Tweets both before
and after his capture by U.S. military forces.
Since I was apparently one of the few American re-
porters who even knew about this invaluable line of
communication representing the authentic voice of mod-
ern piracy, I thought that I would share with my readers
some of the more interesting and potentially eye-opening


Tommy Maple

Tweets Mo sent during this tense
time.

@saYYidNOmAd I kno...I mean, we gots guns but
we from Somalia!! I stay strapped b4 I put on shoes
Quite obviously, 140 characters or less is all that
one needs to sum up the myriad concerns surrounding
the Somali pirate scourge just recently noticed by most
Americans. Twitter and other Web 2.0 sites offer such in-
sightful and essential inroads into the complex human
issues that will come to define our times that they surely
have a great deal of social import. However, I cannot stay
and Tweet on this right now I am chatting with Kim
Jong-Il about how stupid a name "Bo" is for a Portuguese
water dog.

Letter to the Editor
Farmers must demand right to grow pot
Although I can understand the frustration felt
by Matthew Vann in his letter to the editor and
tobacco farmers in general, I also understand the
reasoning behind taxing a dangerous product
that creates a huge burden on the state's health
care system.
Like every other industry, these tobacco farm-
ers need to adapt to the changing political and
economic climate.
Rather than dwell on the numerous negative
effects of tobacco taxation, these farmers need to
be looking at other profitable farming options.
Fortunately, Florida is ideal for growing hemp,
and perhaps these struggling tobacco farmers
should demand from our government that medi-
cal marijuana and hemp farming be legalized.
These farmers would be able to greatly profit
from the sale of hemp, which can be used to make
rope and paper products among many other
things.
Also, the medicinal purposes of marijuana
have proven to be highly effective, safe and could
possibly benefit millions of Florida's elderly pa-
tients in need of care.
Furthermore, it costs about $20,000 per year to
house an inmate in a Florida prison.
If marijuana were decriminalized, the state
would be able to save countless millions of dol-
lars in prison costs due to a decrease in nonvio-
lent marijuana crimes.

Antiquated practice of hazing reveals dark side of Greek life


T e comic featured last week-
concerning the hazing inci-
dents that brought the UF
chapter of Sigma Lambda Gamma
to its second suspension for hazing
violations legitimized and down-
played the crimes of which the orga-
nization has been found guilty.
As someone who was once a vic-
tim of hazing, I can attest that it is no
joking matter. The rules commonly
used by many of the organizations
in the Multicultural Greek Council
and National Pan-Hellenic Council
include: bans on social interaction
outside of the organization, sleep de-
privation, excessive exercising, bans
on accessing certain parts of campus


(such as Turlington Plaza or the Re-
itz Union) bans on online network-
ing, bans on any form of interaction
with other Greek members, bans on
smoking, drinking and sexual in-
tercourse and bans on "shortcuts,"
which could be interpreted to be just
about anything.
How do you think a group of sim-
ilarly aged peers force new members
to comply with these absurd rules?
Fear. At the almost daily "educa-
tion sessions" (which can happen
at any time of the day or night and
may last several hours) it is common
for new members to be blindfolded,
shouted at, pushed, shoved, humili-
ated, sometimes beaten and psycho-


logically
AnonymouS tormented.
Speaking Out New mem-
bers are
also forced
to perform excessive push-ups,
standing exercises and other physi-
cal activities until they have reached
muscular failure. New members
caught breaking the rules will be
"pledged" harder.
There may be certain benefits to
this you might build some broth-
erhood/sisterhood with the people
with whom you were hazed, you
might shed some pounds and you
might even gain some muscle tone.
But after this "process" you will un-


doubtedly have some psychological
scars.
To the Greek organizations that
are caught up in the ego competi-
tion to see which organization hazes
the hardest: shame on you. Can't
you find more innovative and less
barbaric means of building broth-
erhood/sisterhood? It seems you
have forgotten the definition of the
terms that supposedly define your
existence.
To any students considering join-
ing a Greek organization: do your
research. You can usually tell or find
out if an organization hazes or not.
Don't just ask them up front--any
organization will deny it. Talk to


people in the community, and you
can usually tell. Ask yourself if you
really want to be part of an organi-
zation that not only hazes but prides
itself on it.
The bruises I gained from my
time "on-line" (pledging) are gone,
but the psychological damage is still
there, even after a few semesters.
It is a shame that Sigma Lambda
Gamma has been caught twice for
hazing, but hopefully its punish-
ment will not be in vain, and Greek
organizations at UF can mature past
such behavior.

Getting your 'Earth Day' groove on extends beyond just recycling


As Earth Day quickly approaches and
students search for ways to become
"green," it should be stressed that re-
cycling is not the answer.
Not the answer in the sense that it is un-
known how many bottles and old newspapers
in our recycling bins actually find their way to
the recycling plant. Too many times your be-
loved disposables, hand-selected by you to be
reborn into something new, are carried miles
and miles away to the nearest landfill, leaving
behind contaminating carbon footprints in the
process. Not the answer in the sense that recy-
cling still consumes energy.
Recycling alone does not benefit humanity
as the plan intended. It is in need of its brother
and sister, Reduce and Reuse, who have been
left behind in this green frenzy.
With Earth Day on the horizon, help bring
back the lost siblings. Give yourself a one-
up over that I-recycle-but-still-drive-an-SUV
neighbor. Make him cringe.
If you are the SUV-driving neighbor, you


Irene Vailikit
Speaking Out


now at least have the
opportunity to make
up for it.


Invest in your very
own worm compos-
ter. Yes, I said worm
composter. With one of these babies, you'll
be making your own nutrient-rich fertilizer in
no time (and be bringing on the competition
of the greener summertime lawn). More im-
portantly, you will be reducing the amount of
garbage that travels to landfills every year and
your carbon footprint on the planet.
Worm composters manufactured by
Worm Factory consist of about four square
plastic bins stacked one on top of another. The
top three bins are going to hold your leftover
food waste, paper and red wiggler worms. As
microbes eat away at your garbage, the red
wigglers consume the microbes, producing
nutrient-rich worm castings.
The worm manure can then be disposed of
in your garden or yard.


The Worm Factory composter is compact,
odor-free (if used correctly) and can be stored
under your kitchen sink. It can be found online
and is a no-brainer to assemble. The worms
can consume about five to eight pounds of
food a day, providing you with rich compost
every month.
You would be reducing your waste and re-
using it as fertilizer. Hopefully, you will con-
tinue to recycle all of your non-compostable
packaging, making the family of "R"s com-
plete and benefitting society to the best of its
ability. Much more efficient than letting lonely
brother Recycle do all the work, right?
If the idea of having a worm farm in your
kitchen causes your stomach to chur, have
no fear. Hop on the bandwagon; use reusable
canvas totes instead of plastic bags for grocery
shopping and Bio Bags (biodegradable, com-
postable garbage bags) to dispose your waste.
A big money saver? Stop drinking bottled
water. America's tap water is strictly regulat-
ed and, unlike bottled water, tested multiple


times a day.
The Gainesville 2008 Water Quality Report
is available online.
Don't like the taste? Invest in a water puri-
fying pitcher. It will save you hundreds if not
thousands of dollars over a lifetime.
On your way to grab a cup o' Joe? Use a
thermos or traveler's mug. Many coffee shops
will offer about a 10 cent discount on your cof-
fee if you are sporting a reusable mug. If you
were to pay a visit to Starbucks every day for
10 months out of the year, thats an easy $28
back in your pocket to pay for the thermos you
invested in.
Whatever way you choose to participate in
Earth Day, make sure that you take all facets
of the process into account. While recycling is
a step toward a more ecologically friendly fu-
ture, it does not work as well standing alone.
Hopefully, cultivating creepy-crawlies for the
production of fresh fertilizer will be at the top
of your list.

Tke Gainuvie Cxpe'ueem
The end of the school year is upon us the time for all the soon-to-be graduates to make the most of their last few weeks in Gainesville.
To help, here is a list of the top 10 things to do before leaving town.


1 O Lake Wauburg
Lake Wauburg offers UF
students fun for free. Just
bring your Gator 1 Card to Wauburg, and
you and your friends can go fishing, canoe-
ing, kayaking, sailing and swimming. It's the
ultimate Gainesville outdoor experience.
Head down Southwest 13th Street toward
Micanopy and you'll see the sign for the
lake.
9 Become a Globetrotter
Salty Dog Saloon on West Univer-
sity Avenue offers one of the best bar
experiences in Gainesville, and becoming a
Globetrotter is something you shouldn't miss.
To become a Globetrotter you have to drink
one beer from each country listed on the beer
menu in 60 days a total of 30 beers. Not
only do you get a free T-shirt, but you also get
to drink some good beer in a fun atmosphere.

8 Hare Krishna Lunch
It's not just for vegetarians and hip-
pies. Everyone should try the Krishna
lunch on the Plaza of the Americas. Not only
is the food good, it's cheap. Krishna Lunch


has been served on campus since 1971 and
draws hundreds of students each day.

7 Gator Stompin'
This graduation tradition is a must-
do for graduating seniors. For $25
you spend the night of April 30 cruising res-
taurants and barhopping to 32 different lo-
cations, including Gator City, Fat Tuesday,
Dragonfly and Mellow Mushroom. At each
bar you get one alcoholic or nonalcoholic
drink, and at each restaurant you get a
food item. And there's a free T-shirt.

6 Running of the Bulls
Each Fall, the women of the Panhel-
lenic Council hand out bids for their so-
rorities to excited hopefuls on Norman Field.
And each year, hundreds of people show
up to watch. Why the big turnout? It's pure
entertainment. Nowhere else in Gainesville
will you hear more screaming, witness more
excitement and see more tears all in one
place. Whether or not you're a part of the
Greek community, sorority bid day, or "the
running of the bulls" is something you can't
miss. Note: This event takes place in the Fall,


so if you're graduating, make it a reason to
come back and visit next year.

5 Eat at The Swamp
If you didn't dine at The Swamp with
your parents during your freshman year,
it's something you should probably make hap-
pen before you leave town. It's not so much
about the food as it is about the environment. So
stop by with mom and dad, enjoy a pitcher of
beer and some food, and enjoy one of Gaines-
ville's most cliched dining experiences.

Orange & Brew
The Orange & Brew may not be the
No. 1 hot spot for drinking, but how
can you pass it up? Other than sneaking a
flask into a football game, this is really your
only chance to drink on campus. And drinking
here won't get you into trouble. With a wide
range of available beers and late hours (it's
open until 1 a.m. on Fridays), it's one place
on campus you shouldn't pass up.

3 Celebrate at Marston
Marston Science Library the library
that isn't. Before leaving, graduates


should try to celebrate something (a birthday,
good exam grade, graduation, etc.) in the
enormous library where no one pays attention
to the fact that, yes, this is a library. You aren't
supposed to answer your phone and talk with
"outside" voices. People have already been
seen celebrating birthdays there with friends
and cupcakes, so you won't be the first obnox-
ious person to do it.

2 Ginnie Springs
Only 13 miles north of Gainesville,
Ginnie Springs is one of the best swim-
ming and diving spots around. There are
seven different springs in which to snorkel or
dive. It's also fairly cheap: $10 depending
on what you want to do. There's also a river
to tube down with your friends. This spot will
make any hot Gainesville day a lot nicer.

Watch the Gators win a NCAA
Championship
Soon-to-be graduates, you can
check this off your list. Thanks to the UF foot-
ball and men's basketball teams, we were
all here for some of the greatest experiences
of our college careers.

The Grand Prize is a framed photograph from the 2006 Football National Championship autographed by Urban Meyer and Chris Leak!
Read the Alligator for upcoming contests to see how YOU could win!


Being a senior at the University of Florida is hard
to sum up in words. It's the culmination of a lot
of hard work and dedication. It's the realization
that I'm about to enter the real world and leave a lot of
friends and memories behind. I remember when I first
got here four years ago, it felt like graduation would
never come, but now that it's staring me right in the face,
I have a real sense of accomplishment. I've been a gator
all of my life; my goal has always been to come here and
get my degree. To have achieved that goal is an amaz-
ing feeling. I know though that with all great accomplish-
ments, it wasn't solely because of me. I will always be


thankful for the people in my life that helped push me
and influence me to this point in my life. Whether it was
my girlfriend making sure I didn't forget to sleep in on
my early morning exam, or my cousin helping me with
business finance when I was utterly confused. I've just
been blessed with a great group of friends and loved
ones. I know though that my parents will be the happiest
of all though, because they won't have any more bills
to pay! Of course, I also can't forget for a second all
the wonderful memories I have from our football and
basketball teams. When I got here freshman year, I was
hoping to see just an SEC championship! The fact that I


saw four national championships is ridiculous. My class
has honestly been one of the luckiest classes of all time
in that regards. Personally, I'm just glad I got to witness
Georgia getting stomped by us in Jacksonville this year.
I'll never forget seeing that stadium half full with only
gators left cheering on the team. All in all, it has been a
great ride. My professors have done a great job prepar-
ing me, and while I will always look back with a smile
on the crazy nights in midtown or tailgating for a game,
I'm ready to leave my mark on the world. One thing will
always ring true for me however; it truly was great to be
Florida Gator.

Make sure you will graduate


ALLIGATOR STAFF REPORT

Before UF students planning on graduating
in May send out those fancy graduation an-
nouncements, they should take a look at the
university's checklist to make sure they actually
get their diplomas:

Make sure you have met all of your de-
gree requirements with your academic
adviser.
If you haven't filled out a degree appli-
cation form, you're late. But you can still
get a late application form on ISIS.
Verify your local and home addresses so
you're sure to get your diploma. Your di-
ploma will be mailed to your home mailing
address about 10 weeks after graduation.

Clear your academic record. Incomplete
grades must be converted to satisfactory
letter grades before you can graduate.


Satisfy all financial obligations (fines, tickets,
fees, etc.) with University Financial Services
in Criser Hall, Room 113. Outstanding debt
will delay release of your diploma and transcript.

Complete an exit interview with the Of-
fice for Student Financial Affairs if you
have received financial aid, student
loans or scholarships.

Visit the Career Resource Center for help writ-
ing your resume and to consult other career-
related materials. In other words, get a job.

Order your regalia at the UF Bookstore. There
will be a $10 late fee if you order between today
and April 16, and a $15 late fee after that.

Consider joining the UF Alumni Association.
For recent graduates, a membership costs
$25 a year or $600 for a lifetime member-
ship. It gets more expensive down the road: $40
per year or $800 for a lifetime membership.


FROM GRADUATION
TO CORPORATION
For UF students ... Learn to survive and
thrive in the workplace and overcome
the generation gap at work.
27-year corporate veteran Andy Teach
ddresses this and many more issues in his
new book.

Gators to play Seminoles in last of three-game series

Wednesday night at McKethan Stadium.


* THE TEAMS HAVE SPLIT
THEIR FIRST TWO GAMES.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

The Gators are hoping to avoid
a case of deja vu in Tallahassee to-
night.
Just like last season, UF (23-12)
is heading into the final leg of its
three-game series with FSU (21-11)
having split the first two contests.
The two meetings this season re-
sulted in a 5-4 win in Gainesville
and a 3-2 defeat in Jacksonville for
UF.
When the Gators traveled to Tal-
lahassee last season for the third
game of the series, they fell 4-2.
Over the weekend, the Gators
notched their first road SEC se-
ries victory in Auburn, Ala., and
UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan hopes
the momentum will carry his team
into the final regular-season meet-
ing with the Seminoles without too
much buildup from the coaching
staff.
"I hope that I don't have to say a


whole lot. I hope that they get fired
up and ready to go," O'Sullivan
said.
If momentum isn't enough
to carry the Gators to a victory,
O'Sullivan feels confident that his
well-rested pitching staff will give
UF an advantage.
In the final two games against
the Tigers, the Gators used a com-
bined four pitchers thanks in part
to an eight-inning outing by starter
Stephen Locke on
Saturday and a 6
1/3-inning perfor-
mance by freshman
Baseball starter Anthony
DeSclafani on Sun-
day.
"We certainly got the num-
bers. We just need to execute,"
O'Sullivan said.
Freshman Greg Larson, who
has yet to start a game in his short
college career, finished out Locke's
effort on Saturday and is one of the
options to start tonight at 6 p.m. in
Dick Howser Stadium.
Senior Patrick Keating, who lost
his spot in the weekend rotation,

UF FOOTBALL

Two more starters injured


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligatororg

With all the injuries to his team, UF coach
Urban Meyer joked that he doesn't know
how the Gators will even play their spring
game Saturday.
The Gators' injury list has seemingly
grown by the day, and two more starters
were added to that list Monday.
Freshman cornerback Janoris Jenkins will
have finger surgery and is expected to be
out for three weeks. Meyer said the injury
was "real minor."
The news for sophomore offensive line-
man Maurkice Pouncey is less fortunate.
Pouncey had successful shoulder surgery
Monday and is expected to be out for three
months. While he'll be ready for the start of
the fall season, he will miss a majority of the
summer training program.
UF is already without defensive linemen,
Justin Trattou (shoulder strain) and Carlos
Dunlap (abdominal injury), tight end Des-


mond Parks (sprained knee) and receiver
David Nelson (sprained right foot).
A slew of other players have also nursed
injuries throughout the spring.
MEYER DEFENDS HARVIN: Meyer said he has
received phone calls from NFL personnel
asking about former receiver Percy Harvin,
who is no longer a lock to be a first-round
pick in the NFL Draft on April 25.
"We won two national champion-
ships around (Percy Harvin)."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

Several reports have surfaced question-
ing Harvin's work ethic and coachability,
and NFLDraftBible.com reported Harvin
tested positive for marijuana at the NFL
Scouting Combine, though that report has
not been confirmed elsewhere.
While Meyer did not comment on Har-
vin's coachability, he quickly elaborated on

MLS great for summer lull


ummers have usually been
a rough time for me as far as
sports go.
There's no football, except for the
NFL Draft, which doesn't get me all
hot and bothered like it does for oth-
er people. College basketball is done,
and the NBA doesn't really hold my
attention. And I only follow MLB
when the Atlanta Braves are doing
well down the stretch (so I haven't
watched in a while).
Tennis and golf provide distrac-
tions for a week or so at a time, and
then I spend the next week trying to
be Roger Federer or Tiger Woods.
Still, I could never find anything
strong enough to make up for the
loss of football.
Until last summer, when I did the
previously unthinkable.
I got into soccer.
Euro 2008 captivated me. I'll nev-
er forget Turkey's improbable run


eto the semifi-
nals, capped
by a thrilling
shootout vic-
tory against
Croatia, where
Mike McCall the only goals
McCall-in' It were scored in
Like I See It the 119th and
mmccall@alligator.org 122nd minutes
in extra time.
Next, I dove
into the English Premier League and
got hooked on Arsenal, but I wanted
to follow a club that I had a realistic
chance of watching in person.
So I went ten steps past my sacri-
legious decision to follow soccer and
chose to give the MLS a chance.
The season started three weeks
ago and runs through the summer
to the MLS Cup on Nov. 22. It cov-

UF gets boost from multiple freshmen


BASE, from page 19

and freshman Justin Poovey,
who has made two starts this
season, are the other two op-
tions.
Last season, O'Sullivan
used six different pitchers to
complete the third game, and
he has shown a quick hook
when his starters begin to
struggle this season.
Having many options in
relief will only help in that
respect.
Larson and Poovey are
just two of the many fresh-
men who have been produc-


ing for the Gators lately.
Preston Tucker was
named SEC Freshman of the
Week for the second time
this season after his Ruthian
performance against Central
Florida on
Wednesday
night, and
right fielder
Daniel Pig-
ott has pro-
vided a ver-
o'sullivan satile option
in the No. 2
spot in the lineup.
Pigott, who laid down the
suicide squeeze with two
outs to cap UF's ninth-inning


comeback against Alabama
on March 28, hit his second
home run of the season Sun-
day.
"He can run. He's got
power," O'Sullivan said of
Pigott. "We always thought
he'd be an exciting offensive
player for us."
Avoiding the same fate as
last season may come down
to the contributions of the
freshmen who weren't on the
roster a year ago.
O'Sullivan said growing
pains are to be expected with
a young squad, but he feels
his team is starting to hit its
stride.


Fullbacks show improvement during spring


NOTES, from page 19


all the former offensive star did while at UF.
"We won two national championships
around him some of the greatest years in the
history of Florida football," Meyer said. "I was
on the sideline with a guy that I know exactly
the competitive nature of what we're dealing
with. Percy's an extreme competitor. ... I think
he'll be a great NFL football player."
FULLBACKS GET 'FUNCTIONAL': To say Meyer
was disappointed with his fullbacks when
spring practice started would be an understate-
ment. Steven Wilks, Rick Burgess and T.J. Pri-
demore did not please the coaching staff when


the spring sessions began.
Now, the unit is making Meyer feel much
more comfortable.
"I made the comment that the fullback po-
sition was bordering on embar-
rassing," Meyer said. "It's very
functional right now."
Meyer has been especially
Football appreciative of walk-on Christo-
pher Scott, who has played run-
ning back and fullback. Meyer said Scott could
play at either position.
"I have no idea (where he came from),"
Meyer said.
"He showed up one day on the practice
field."


M IKE, from page 19


ers my summer dead period, and
with most games on Saturdays, it
fills the void of week-to-week ex-
citement that football left behind.
Most importantly, it doesn't
suck. If you enjoy watching soccer,
MLS has enough talent and parity
to hold your attention. The first
step is picking a team to follow.
The Eastern Conference has
been much tougher than the West
in recent years think SEC vs. Big
East but the wild card slots are
awarded without regard to confer-
ence, so teams aren't punished for
playing in a tough division. By this
rule, New York won the West last
year.
Compiled with my severely
limited MLS knowledge and gut
feeling, here are a few teams to
start following this year, including
their current records.
CHICAGO FIRE (2-2-0): Founded
on the anniversary of the Great
Chicago Fire (fun fact), the Fire
has a solid developmental system
and boasts former U.S. National
Team forward Brian McBride. It's
early, but Chicago figures to be
one of the top teams in the East.
Still, I wouldn't pick the Fire un-
less you're predisposed to Chicago
teams.
LA GALAXY (0-2-1): If you like the
Lakers, Yankees, Cowboys or any


other franchise that picks up band-
wagon fans by name and logo
alone, these guys are for you. They
get David Beckham back in June
and also feature U.S. star Landon
Donovan, so sell your soul and
jump on board! Just don't expect
a playoff run. If you're more of a
Clippers-type person, check out
cross-town rival Chivas U.S.A.
SEATTLE SOUNDERS (3-0-1): Simply
put, the Sounders are awesome.
Drew Carey is a part owner. Fans
can vote to fire the general man-
ager. They have a marching band.
They've sold out season tickets,
impressing the league enough to
award Seattle the MLS Cup in its
first season. Nearly 30,000 fans
show up for each match, more than
nine teams the English Premier
League draw. They have former
Arsenal great Freddie Ljungberg,
rising star striker Fredy Montero
and Nathan Sturgis, the brother of
UF kicker Caleb Sturgis.
I'm sold. Alligator writer Mike
DiFerdinando and I are flying out
for their May 30 match against Co-
lumbus.
Maybe being a MLS fan will
turnout to be a miserable existence,
but the time I've spent learning the
intricacies of the league and its dif-
ferent clubs has been very enter-
taining thus far. If nothing else,
it'll give me something different to
follow this summer.
