Provost's office proposes $4.9M in cuts


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

According to details of budget proposals
obtained this week, UF is considering cuts to
book and journal purchasing by the libraries
as well as financial aid and research awards.
The provost's office has proposed $4.9 mil-
lion cut, with $2 million coming from the Grad
Alumni program, which was scheduled to
receive the money from UF's National Merit


Scholars program, UF Provost Joe Glover
said.
Since UF has shifted its focus away from re-
cruiting as many National Merit scholars, the
program has extra money, which would have
been given to the alumni program, Glover
said.
He said he also proposed a 10 percent cut
to financial aid money that comes through
his office, though he said it didn't amount to
much and would be more than made up by
the extra money that is expected to come in


through the differential tuition bill in the state
Legislature.
The bill requires that the
equivalent of 30 percent of
the funds generated through
the extra tuition payments
be used for financial aid.
The provost's proposal
also eliminates funding for
Glover the Employee Education
Program, which allows
UF employees to take classes paid for by the


university. Employees will still be able to take
classes, but the state wouldn't reimburse UF
for the cost of tuition anymore, Glover said.
The University Scholars Program, in which
students work with UF faculty on research
projects, would also receive a 10 percent cut,
which could result in lower stipends for stu-
dents.
The proposal also calls for three staff lay-
offs, the elimination of 15 vacant positions and

Free Cone Day


attracts crowds,


raises money


By MALLORY ZUCKERMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Thousands of people flocked
to two local Ben & Jerry's ice
cream shops Tuesday for the
company's 29th annual Free
Cone Day.
The giveaway benefited the
Alachua County Public School
Foundation for the fourth con-
secutive year. And on UF's
campus, sweet news traveled
fast.
At University Avenue loca-
tion, the warm spring weather,
sugary smells and the prom-
ise of a free frozen treat kept a
steady line of students spilling
out of the store and down the
entire block.


"It always gets more crowd-
ed in between classes," Kelley
Kostamo said. "And today is
such a beautiful day."
Kostamo is the partnering
specialist for Alachua County
Public Schools. She and other
volunteers scooped for tips to
fund school programs. The ice
cream was free, but a $1 dona-
tion bought a topping and $4
donation granted a waffle-cone
upgrade.
Inside the cramped and
buzzing store, customers could
choose between imaginative
flavors like Whirled Peace,
Strawberry Kiwi Sorbet and
Yellow Brickle Road. Some stu-
dents immediately returned to

About 200 students zip lips to oppose budget cuts


* STUDENTS PROTESTED CUT
DIVERSITY, CULTURAL PROGRAMS.

By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

About 200 students donned black shirts
and surgical masks with stickers reading
Day of Silence Tuesday, in honor of the vow


of silence they took oppose UF budget and
program cuts.
The twelve-hour muted spectacle was
part of a Week of Action, where student
senators and other organizational members
decided to stand up against the administra-
tion's decision to cut the center for Multicul-
tural Diversity and Affairs, as well as UF's
Center for Leadership and Service, which


are both housed in the Dean of Student's Of-
fice.
The idea to keep quiet stemmed from a
National Day of Silence held
On last Friday, which symbolized
Campus how the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual
and Transgender community's
voice is ignored.
UF women's studies senior Evan Laut-


eria, who is the educational awareness chair
for the Pride Student Union, said many of
the group's members participated in Tues-
day's silent day as a part of Pride Awareness
Month and to protest budget cuts.
"I think, that bearing in mind it was last
minute and students are studying for exams,
it was roaring success," Lauteria said.

UF student arrested after police find marijuana, crack cocaine, prescription pills in home


A UF student was arrested Monday and
charged with six drug-related felonies after offi-
cials found marijuana, crack cocaine and prescrip-
tion drugs in his possession. At about 11 p.m.,
an Alachua County Sheriff's officer saw David
Janson, 23, standing on the corner near 4500 S.W.
91st St. According to the ASO arrest report, when
Janson saw the ASO officer, he showed signs of
nervousness by walking away and looking over
his shoulder to see if he was being followed.
When the officer approached Janson, he found


a multicolored glass pipe in his front pocket,
which Janson admitted to recently smoking mari-
juana out of, the report stated. Janson told the
officer that he had prescription medication, mari-
juana and other narcotics in his apartment.
After Janson signed a Voluntary Consent to
Search Form, the officer searched his apartment
and found marijuana, a straw cocaine and pre-
scription pills. He was charged with five mide-
meanors and six felonies.

Geocaching provides high-tech hunt for UF student


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Eyes darting, his fast pace gets
faster. He's mumbling. It's around
here somewhere, within 12 feet or
so, he says. Check under the rock.
Check in the dirt. Check the coordi-
nates. Check the rock again.
"Found it!"
With his nearly $250 hand-held
global positioning system, UF stu-
dent Will Dueease uncovered the
hidden treasure. It was lodged in a
rock near the UF law school.
The treasure itself wasn't much
- a tiny metallic monkey pendant
and a long list of names inside a
photo film canister. But the prize
isn't really the point. After signing
his name below the tens of others
who came before him, Dueease put
the canister back.
It's a search for the sake of search-
ing.
A couple of times a week, when
he gets bored, or when it's a nice
day or when he feels like exploring
a new place, Dueease goes on one of
these high-tech hunts, dubbed "geo-
caches."
He starts online, where others
log the coordinates of treasures they
hide, along with clues or sometimes
cash prizes for the first finder.
Then Dueease plugs the location
into his GPS system and hits the
streets. According to www.geocach-
ing.com, the self-proclaimed official
cache site and the one Dueease uses,
the activity began in 2000 when for-
mer President Bill Clinton discon-
tinued an act that forced satellites to
weaken their signals. The weakening
was meant to beef up national secu-
rity, but Clinton's administration
found that it had minimal results.
Because of that decision, GPS
systems were able to pinpoint spe-
cific locations more accurately, and
geocaching was born.
Its name is a combination of
"geo," meaning "geography," and
"cache," a French word for "hiding
place," the site states.
There are now more than 780,000
active geocaches around the world,
according to the site. That's up from
about 75 when the site started keep-


ing track in 2000. About two million
to three million people are in on the
game.
"There's no goal," Dueease said,
pausing to take a sip from his Cam-
elbak, a water-dispensing backpack,
one recent geocaching afternoon.
"People just do it because, well, it's
fun. It's goofy."
UF grounds superintendent Mar-
ty Werts said his employees find
strange items on campus "all the
time," but he can't recall anybody
finding film canisters holding odds
and ends or little lists of names.
Still, they're out there. Duee-
ase guesses there are now about 30
caches on campus and thousands of
others in the Gainesville area.
According to online maps, there
are also caches waiting in France, It-
aly, Antarctica, Laos, Zimbabwe and
pretty much anywhere in between.
Dueease knows firsthand.
On a recent vacation to California,
he and his dad, Bill Dueease, found
a cache hidden on the Golden Gate
Bridge. Near the big, white Holly-
wood sign, they found a special coin
with a serial number to track its lo-
cation online. It had traveled all the
way from South Carolina.
"That little sucker had been
around," the elder Dueease said in a
phone interview.
Dueease owns a life-coaching
business in Fort Lauderdale called
The Coach Connection. When his
son first told him about geocach-
ing, he recalled thinking, "What the
heck? Why would anybody want to
leave something out in the middle of
nowhere?"
He changed his mind after giving
it a try. Besides the quality time with
his son, Dueease said the best part of
geocaching is the teamwork.
"It's a blast. It's an adventure,
you know?"
Shauna Maggs, spokeswoman
for Groundspeak, the company that
operates the geocaching site, said-
caches should never be buried, in in-
terest of preserving natural habitats.
"They should be containers hid-
den in plain sight," she said.
The United States is now the most
popular location for geocaching.
Other top spots include the United


Kim Wilmatl/ Alligator
Will Dueease examines the contents of a recently found cache near the A. Alfred Ring Tennis Complex.


Kingdom, Germany, the Czech Re-
public and Canada.
"It's a good way to know a new
place," Maggs said. "It's never about
what's found. It's more about the ex-
perience of the journey."
Will Dueease agrees.
He now explores places he's nev-
er been and appreciates Florida's
outdoors. There's the adventure
part, too, and feeling like he's part of
"a weird club or something."
Of course, there are times when
he doesn't find what he came for.
Wind and rain can dislodge caches,
or non-geocachers, known as "mug-
gles," could find and take the prize
without knowing any better.
"It kind of sucks," Dueease said
of an unfruitful search. "You're like,
'Awww, was it really there, or did it
get vandalized, or do I just suck at
finding them, or is it a combination


of the three?'"
But he said the majority of hunts
end happily.
After finding the little metal
monkey at the Alfred A. Ring Ten-
nis Complex, a hunt named "Lord
of the Ring" by whoever set it up,
Dueease positioned his GPS for
another cache. This one was called
"By Bike or by Hike" and led him to
an overgrown trail near Fraternity
Row. Swatting away mosquitoes
and untangling himself from spider
webs, Dueease failed to notice the
poison ivy brushing his ankles.
"I guess that's the danger of this
game," he said, chuckling.
Finally, from behind the stump
of a big dead tree, Dueease hoisted a
gallon-sized black canister from the
dirt. "Sweet!"
Inside the jug, he found a plastic
toy cow, a frequent-buyer punch


card for a restaurant he hadn't heard
of, a pink drink coozie and a little
blue notebook. He scrawled a sig-
nature and date below the last log,
someone who'd been there a month
before. Dueease always hunts with
friends but thinks it'd be cool to run
into one of those mysterious fellow
searchers. Then again, maybe not.
Dueease admits that marching
around campus with his GPS and
rooting under rocks for hidden trea-
sure is "moderately embarrassing."
"No girls are like, 'Wow, that's
really hot,' and I can't really go to
a cub and impress people with
my geocaching skills," Dueease
said. "It's nerdy, is it not? This is so
lame."
A glance down at the GPS. The
arrow's pointing that-a-way. Duee-
ase smiles.
"Aw, I love it."

UF debates change


to Spring Break


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

UF students have expressed
mixed reactions to the possibility
of an earlier Spring Break, which
would go into effect in 2011-2012 if
the Faculty Senate votes to make the
change next month.
Bernard Mair, UF's associate pro-
vost for undergraduate affairs, told
faculty at Thursday's Senate meet-
ing that UF is considering moving
Spring Break up a week so it falls
exactly in the middle of the spring
semester.
The Senate is in charge of creat-
ing UF's academic calendar.
Some students said they're ex-
cited about the possible change.
Statistics graduate student Dem-
etris Athienitis said an earlier break
would make for better skiing.
"In Florida we have plenty of hot
weather, so I look to go somewhere
where it's cold," he said.
UF freshman Kendall Johnson
said he likes the idea of having the
break right in the middle of the se-
mester because classes after Spring
Break would feel less rushed.
"I like it being even," he said.
But other students were peeved
by the proposal.
UF freshman Shaniqua Thompo-


son said she thinks an earlier break
could mean colder weather, which
is the opposite of what spring break
is about.
"How are you supposed to go
to the beach and do all your Spring
Break activities if it's cold?" Thomp-
son said.
"How are you supposed to
go to the beach and do all
your Spring Break activities
if it's cold?"
Shaniqua Thompson
UF freshman

One bonus of having the break
earlier in the semester, she said,
would be that she would have more
of her financial aid money left.
"You would have more money to
spend," she said. "But what would
you spend it on?"
"It's cold, so where are you go-
ing?" she said.
Other students were indifferent.
"I don't really do much on spring
break, so it doesn't make a differ-
ence," said UF sophomore Christina
Ruiz.
"I don't care," said UF statis-
tics graduate student Anestis Tou-
loumis. "It's one week off either
way."


Demand up for UF counseling


By MATT TRIPP
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's Counseling Center has noted an increase
in students seeking and being referred to its ser-
vices in the last year, keeping with a national
trend, according an article in the Chronicle of
Higher Education.
The nearly two-decade-old counseling system,
which was implemented after Danny Rolling
murdered five students in August of 1990, puts
UF "ahead of other universities," said Sherry Ben-
ton, director of the Center.
Benton said the university uses a method
called "Question, Persuade and Refer," to educate
UF faculty, staff and students on how to identify
signs of mental distress. Alongside this method,
informational folders are given to all faculty and
staff when they sign on to work at UF.
The folders contain steps for dealing with dis-
tressed or disruptive students and include a list
of contacts. The training process is mandatory for
UF faculty and staff and free for students.
Faculty are told to look for out-of-the-ordinary
behavior, including visible anxiety and anger.
According to the 2008 Healthy Gators Student
Survey, 54.3 percent of student participants cited
experiencing extreme anxiety, while 31.3 percent
experienced debilitating depression in the last 12
months. However, only 7.7 percent of those stu-
dents were professionally diagnosed with anxi-
ety, while 6.9 percent of those surveyed were pro-
fessionally diagnosed with depression.
In managing their stress, 4.6 percent of stu-
dents surveyed reported having become physi-
cally aggressive with a person, animal or object


to reduce stress in the 30 days prior to taking the
survey.
The emphasis on mental health at universities
has risen in the wake of school tragedies, such as
the 2007 shootings at Virginia Technical Institute
in Blacksburg. New programs have been imple-
mented to teach faculty and staff how to better
identify students who may have mental issues.
One program, called "At-Risk," was released
earlier this year by Kognito Interactive.
The online program allows faculty to have

Life When asked about such pro-
grams, Benton said she took issue
with their cost and quality.
"I get a little nervous about these things," she
said. "They can be slightly over-the-top, especial-
ly after Virginia Tech."
Benton said she fears that when people use
simulators like these, people may misread certain
behaviors and start recommending the wrong
people for treatment.
"When you identify people wrongly, you get a
lot of liability," she said.
The Virginia Tech shootings also prompted
some companies to capitalize on a heightened
sense of worry, she said.
The cost, which is about $5,000 to teach 500 fac-
ulty and staff members via Kognito Interactive, is
expensive, said Benton, who added UF paid of a

mation without the money," she said.

Editorial
Hell, you think you're ready for this semester to be over?
Just sneak a peek inside the Alligator newsroom, with
moving boxes abound except, of course, for our
trusty junk-food drawers (Kit-Kats on the reg) which will re-
main fully stocked until the Appliance Direct lady sings.
Somewhere Liz Lemon (oh, so hot) is feeling all warm and
tingly inside for the shout-out.
Before we "write off" to the big newsroom in the sky, the De-
partment of Darts & Laurels proudly presents this week's just-
when-you-think-you're-out-they-pull-you-back-in edition of...



Darts & Laurels
Thanks to an economy teetering on utter disaster, the fate of
public universities across the state of Florida remains in ques-
tion, with perhaps none more pressing than our own. For poten-
tially ending the careers of talented faculty and forcing students
to reconsider their intended course of study, the Department of
Darts & Laurels tosses a we-don't-even-want-to-imagine-what-
UF-is-going-to-tur-into DART at budget cuts. With so much
of what makes UF great hanging by a thread, we can only hope
President Bernie Machen can properly remedy the situation
while keeping the future in mind.
From securing the BCS national championship to being
the subject of one of the most hilarious guest columns in the
esteemed history of The Independent Florida Alligator (see
Page 7), No. 15 has won over the legion of fans who call North
Central Florida home. The Department of Darts & Laurels
awards a read-Tuesday's-editorial-if-you-have-any-doubts-
about-this-guy LAUREL to Tim Tebow for everything he has
accomplished both on and off the field in the name of The Gator
Nation. While his prowess on the football field remains unpar-
alleled, Tebow's greatest gift is his drive to help others.
And have you seen "Treebow"?
With sorority girls botching beer robberies from medio-
cre grocery stores (rhymes with "meat tray") and carjackings
aplenty, the semester has offered a smorgasbord of the finest
in after-hours debauchery. From providing us with a hearty
chuckle to keeping us up late at night fearing for our Ford Mus-
tang, the Department of Darts & Laurels chucks a we've-never-
been-so-afraid-to-take-a-shower-without-a-baseball-bat-nearby
DART at Gainesville crime. What's a better way to start your
day than to peruse the latest in Gainesville fine art that magi-
cally appeared on your front door overnight?
From correctly selecting the eventual March Madness cham-
pion to rubbing elbows with world big-wigs at the G-20 sum-
mit, the new commander in chief certainly has some fans over at
the ol' Alligator newsroom. The Department of Darts & Laurels
presents a we-love-what-you-have-done-and-are-confident-
you-will-continue-to-wow-us LAUREL to President Barack
Obama for making a name for himself in fewer than 100 days
in the White House. Now if only he could do something about
making the day after the Super Bowl a national holiday...
Hmm, maybe if the Bears make a run?
With shopping malls so quiet you could hear a mouse fart,
America's financial crisis has rocked news headlines all semes-
ter long like an awkward phone conversation with a disturbing-
ly chatty friend. For leaving MBA-clad professionals jobless and
middle-class families on the street, the Department of Darts &
Laurels launches a we-may-or-may-not-have-applied-for-food-
stamps-this-semester DART at economic downturn. Nothing
screams broke as a joke more than turning to a brown-bagged
bottle of "Big Jug" malt liquor (yum!) to get your drink on.
"A rich, full flavor...a smooth, mellow taste"
From the frustrations of a server-on-the-fritz circa day one
to the joy we shared laughing about the perfect marriage of rap
and politics, one constant has remained through and through.
The Department of Darts & Laurels extends a we-are-truly-
nothing-without-your-loyal-support LAUREL to the readers of
the Alligator for coming along for the journey otherwise known
as spring semester 2009. Love us or hate us, you guys and gals
sure are swell in our book.
That's all for this semester. And remember, if you have a
truck, you are the man.

Style over substance only goes so far


S he's never even heard of YouTube, but the video of
Susan Boyle's performance on the talent show "Brit-
ain's Got Talent" has set the record for the number of
views in a week and it shows no sign of stopping any
time soon.
For those of you who may have been living under a
rock for the past couple of weeks, Boyle is a 47-year-old
Scotswoman who wowed both the judges and a live au-
dience with her rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" from
"Les Miserables."
Boyle's voice albeit skilled could have come out
of almost anybody, but it came out of her. She certainly
isn't a contender for "America's Next Top Model," with
her frizzy hair, matronly attire and thick eyebrows but
Boyle walked onto that stage with nothing but a prere-
corded instrumental track and an audience with very low
expectations. Needless to say, she blew them all out of the
water.
She opened her mouth to sing, and it took about three
seconds before the cheers erupted. Simon Cowell, Mr.
Grumpus himself, even replaced his trademark unim-
pressed stare to a soft smile, watching her perform as she
received a standing ovation from the audience. Wait, does
Boyle have magical powers that render Cowell dare I
say it human?
Someone obviously knew what this woman sounded
like. Boyle had to audition in front of the show's produc-
ers, but unless the judges were able to feign amazement
that well, they had no idea the unassuming woman hold-
ing the microphone would shatter their preconceived no-
tions about her.
And while people are being charmed the world over by
Boyle, her performance was a loud wake-up call.


Society has been bombarded
with a large number of "isms" -
ageism, sexism and what I'd like
to call "Plain Jane-ism." Despite
all of this, Boyle had the courage to
get up on that stage and unabash-
Naudia Jawad edly show the judges just what
letters@alligator.org she could do. She's not a pretty,
young, slim, cookie-cutter blonde;
she's well over the defined age that
a starlet should be, and she only shares her bed with her
10-year-old cat, Pebbles.
Can old, celibate and frumpy be talented? Perhaps now
we'll be able to pick singers by just that: their ability to
sing, and not how young, curvy and manicured they are.
I've watched the now-famous YouTube video a hand-
ful of times, and each time, it brings tears to my eyes that
I tend to save for "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."
I'll admit to not knowing much about music, but it's not
Boyle's intonation or her range that truly make her per-
formance the sensation that it's become. It's her boldness
in how she belted out the lyrics with a smile on her face,
knowing that she had surprised everyone.
With all the gloom and doom in the world, it's refresh-
ing to see so much international support for Boyle. Her fan
club Web site, which warns to "never judge a book by its
cover," has more than 13,000 members, culminating in a
feel-good site that exudes collective joy.
This "never-been-kissed" church lady is proof that
sometimes when you least expect it, the underdog does
triumph.

Guest column

Editorial love letter to Tebow fails to consider ulterior motives


Well, it seems the Alligator is once
again on an all Kool-Aid diet. Noth-
ing else would explain the 600-
word fellating this paper gave Tim Tebow on
Tuesday. See, I like to think most people in
the communications field are bright enough
to notice a PR move when they see one.
You think Tim Tebow does charity events
because that's the first thing he wants to do
on a Saturday afternoon? Sure, it's possible,
but how many more jerseys and "The Prom-
ise" T-shirts does UF sell when they can
claim to have Gandhi in a helmet walking
around the campus? How many more na-
tional TV games do the Gators get because


America wants to see a great humanitarian
playing football instead of the usual collec-
tions of criminals some schools are made out
to employ?
Either that or St. Timothy of Jacksonville
had a little conversation with someone in the
know about his potential career. Perhaps the
guy who is his agent-but-not-really-because-
Tim-Tebow-and-Urban-Meyer-never-break-
rules-so-it's-obviously-not-his-agent said,
"Hey Timmy, right now you are predicted
to be drafted somewhere in the early fifth
round, and the debate now is about whose ca-
reer will be longer, yours or Eric Crouch's."
And Timothy said unto him, "Jesus would


Matthew Meltzer like to know what
Speaking Out in the name of Je-
sus I can do to be
drafted on Jesus'
holy first day of the draft? Because I can't be
picked on Sunday, that is Jesus' day."
"Well, if Warren Sapp can lose half of a
round for smoking pot, maybe you can pick
up half of a round for creating charity events
for no reason whatsoever. You do one a
month from now until next April, and you're
headed to the Lions in the second round. If
not, how do you feel about Saskatchewan?"
I'm sure Tim Tebow is a good enough
guy, but let's not anoint him anything more


than what he is: a really good college football
player. You want a true humanitarian? How
'bout Tony Romo? That guy takes bums to
the movies and doesn't make a giant public
spectacle out of it.
You wanna create yourself a real humani-
tarian, UF? How about telling "San Timo-
teo" to go out and do good without a camera
crew around? Then maybe he can get himself
picked on Saturday, and ESPN won't have to
spend the next morning in church with the
Tebows waiting to see if he ends up being
Mr. Irrelevant.

Man robs store
A Gainesville man was arrested in connection with the
robbery of a local Walgreens Monday afternoon.
At about 2:35 p.m., the man walked up to the Walgreens
counter at 1170 E. University Ave. and demanded money
from the cashier.
According to the Gainesville Police Department arrest
report, Hines told the woman at the counter that he had
"nothing to lose."
He then showed the woman a black object in the waist-
band of his pants, the report stated.
Believing that this object was the
handle of a gun, the cashier told officials
she was scared and handed him $100 in
cash, the report stated. The report did
not specify if the money came from the
register.
According to the report, the man was
Hines identified as Curtis Hines, 33, by a Wal-
greens surveillance photograph.
Hines was arrested at 12:49 a.m. Tuesday, the report
stated. Records show he was recently released from the De-
partment of Corrections on aggravated battery charges.
Hines told officials that while he did not actually have
a weapon, he wanted the cashier to think he was carrying
one. The report did not mention if Hines was actually car-
rying a weapon.
Hines was charged with armed robbery with a firearm
or other deadly weapon.

Finals week breeds insomniacs


By NATALIE ARRIETA
Alligator Contributing Writer

It is midnight on a Monday, and all of Leah Chap-
man's roommates are asleep. She walks into her
room, turns off the light switch and crawls into bed.
An hour goes by, and Chapman is still wide awake.
"I have a lot of trouble sleeping sometimes," the
UF sophomore said. "I stress out about my school-
work, especially around finals."
Chapman is not alone when it comes to her stress-
induced insomnia. More than 61.6 percent of UF stu-
dents suffer from sleeping problems, according to
the Healthy Gators Student Survey conducted by the
Healthy Gators 2010 Coalition in March 2008.
Stress-induced insomnia can escalate during finals
week, says Tina Long, a health promotion specialist
for GatorWell.
"Your body likes the same consistency," Long
said. "You'll start to feel more rested."
Steve Arnett, sleep coordinator at the Sleep Dis-
orders Center at Shands, recommends exercising
during the day and trying not to cram for finals. If


you cannot fall asleep after 15 minutes, get up and do
something else, he suggests.
"Don't lie in bed waiting to fall asleep," Arnett
said. "Your mind will just go crazy."
He suggests getting out of bed and reading a book
until you begin to feel sleepy. Sleeping in and taking
naps during the day will just cause a snowball effect
of sleeplessness.
Some sleep "don'ts" include watch-
Student ing TV before sleeping, exercising be-
Life fore bedtime and consuming caffeine at
night, he said.
Long suggests taking a 10- to 15-minute study
break about every 50 minutes.
When creating an action plan for finals week, in-
corporate some fun activities such as walking or so-
cializing. It helps keep the stress from building up,
she said.
Chapman is guilty of sabotaging her own sleep.
"I tend to fall asleep with the TV on and go for
late-night runs," she admits. "And I guess if I laid
off the Mountain Dew all day, I'd get a better night's
sleep."

15 horse carcasses arrive at vet school for testing


By HUNTER SIZEMORE
Alligator Writer
jhsizemore@alligator.org
The carcasses of 15 polo horses
were delivered to UF's College of
Veterinary Medicine early Mon-
day morning for testing to deter-
mine the cause of death for 21 of
the animals in Wellington, Fla.
"We're not doing any
of it for notoriety. Our
concern is getting the
science right."
Sarah Carey
UF College of Veterinary Medicine
spokeswoman

The horses, part of a polo team
from Venezuela, were set to com-
pete in the U.S. Open on Sunday
afternoon. However, the animals
became dizzy, some even falling
down. All afflicted horses died
within 24 hours.
Six of the carcasses were trans-
ported to the Florida Department
of Agriculture laboratory in Kis-
simmee, Fla.
UF was initially asked to per-
form necropsies on eight of the


horses; procedures that include a
physical inspection, on-site test-
ing under a microscope and off-
site blood and tissue testing.
Each animal was valued at up
to $200,000.
The horses were insured, and
testing was required to make a
death benefit claim.
Pathologists were unsure how
long the testing would take, but
the first tests on eight horses were
completedby5:30p.m. onMonday.
Sarah Carey, a spokeswoman
for the college, said that the
lab results' ability to deter-
mine cause of death may de-
pend on how quickly the hors-
es died after being stricken.
"If the horses died within two
hours, it may not show up in the
organs," she said.
On Tuesday, testing for the
additional six horses was re-
quested.
The college charges $1,155 for
basic in-lab testing of each horse,
and additional tests add to the
fee. Carey believes that many
of the horses will undergo extra
testing, she wrote in an e-mail.
The college has received signifi-
cant media attention following

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

SG passes budget, resolutions


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

Student Government voted unanimously to
passed its budget bill, dishing out $583,482 to 87
student organizations Tuesday night.
But, before the budget was approved, Orange
and Blue Sens. Alden Gillespy and Jonathan Ossip
presented an amendment giving $969 in funds that
were not accounted for in the budget to Fearless,
an anti-discrimination advocacy group.
"We don't want these cut to happen, but
we don't have the funds to go forward."
Dave Schneider
Progress Party senator

The extra money was also used to provide ad-
ditional funds for five other organizations: Heal
the World, Hindu Student Union, the Intervarsity
Christian Fellowship, Student Global Aids Cam-
paign and VOX: Voices of Planned Parenthood.
The Senate chambers were unusually full Tues-
day night when students stopped by to support
two resolutions that were both passed, but not
unanimously, later in the meeting.
A resolution is a piece of legislation that states
the Senate's opinion but takes no action.
Skeet Surrency, a representative for the Save
Our Schools Coalition, urged senators to vote in
favor of the first resolution, which was authored
by Orange and Blue Sen. Ben Cavataro.


The resolution proclaims support of the one-
cent sales tax currently being debated in the State
Legislature.
Surrency said the Florida Education Association
and FSU President T.K. Weatherall both support
the tax, which would raise money for education.
A second resolution, authored by Unite Party
Sen. Gaby Alvarez, Unite Party Sen. Jannise Acosta
and Progress Party Sen. Dave Schnieder, presented
a resolution stating the Senate's disapproval of the
administration's decision to cut the Multicultural
Affairs Department and the Center for Leadership
and Service.
The department and center house several vol-
unteer, leadership, diversity-related and cultural
student organizations including Florida Alterna-
tive Breaks, the Women's Leadership Council, the
Office of LGBT Affairs, the Institute of Black Cul-
ture and La Casita.
"These two resolutions go in hand perfectly,"
Schnieder said earlier in the meeting.
"We don't want these cut to happen, but we
don't have the funds to go forward," he said add-
ing the one-penny sales tax would generate $3.6
billion in revenue over the next three years.
The resolutions did meet some opposition. Or-
ange and Blue Sen. Sam Miorelli said it is more
important to focus efforts on saving academic pro-
grams instead of crying every time a program is
eliminated because of budget cuts.
"The sales tax increase would have no effect on
the current round of budget cuts and might not
even affect the next round," he said.


Lindsey Jameson, director of the Women's Leadership Council at UF,
discusses reasons why the proposed budget cuts to eliminate the
Center for Leadership and Service and Multicultural and Diversity Af-
fairs should not be passed, during the Student Senate meeting Tues-
day night.

UCF president: Stimulus cash not budget cut solution


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

The University of Central Florida is look-
ing at potentially having to cut $22 million
to $57 million off its budget, and like UF
President Berie Machen, UCF's president
said stimulus money is not a long-term solu-
tion to cuts.
UCF President John Hitt announced in
a message to faculty and staff Tuesday that


UCF could be looking at "the elimination
of hundreds of faculty and staff jobs and
deny(ing) educational opportunities to thou-
sands of students" in the worst-case scenar-
io. More details of the budget proposal will
be released soon, he wrote.
Hitt also wrote that UCF would receive
$18 million in stimulus money in both the
Florida House and Senate budget proposals.
"As helpful as the stimulus money is in
the near-run, it is not a long-term answer,"
he wrote.


"The cuts to UCF's base budget are per-
manent," he wrote, "and
stimulus money disap-
pears after two years."
Machen announced last
week that UF would not be
using stimulus money to
offset budget cuts, which
affect recurring costs, costs
that must be paid every
year, like salaries.
UF is expecting to receive $41 million in


stimulus money each year for the next two
years, Machen said, but after that time is up,
UF can't count on that money.
"We can't just assume that that $41 mil-
lion is going to be filled up in two years, so
we are going to make our cuts," he said last
week.
Instead, the money will be used to pay
for transitional measures, like paying sala-
ries for laid-off employees during their no-
tice period, which can be a year long in some
cases.

Reilly to pass torch, lessons learned onto Johnson


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

Come May 1, Student Body Pres-
ident Kevin Reilly will pass more
than just his torch to Student Body
President-elect Jordan Johnson.
With the transition in Student
Government administrations comes
a host of learned lessons from Reil-
ly's sometimes-rocky year in office.
Reilly, a Gator Party member
and former Student Senate presi-
dent, did not return multiple phone
calls over the past few days to reflect
on his year, saying via text message
Tuesday that he is in meetings in
Washington, D.C., all day.
His reign as UF's chief executive
officer included fulfilling some cam-
paign processes, such as extending
library hours through exam week, a
measure continued from the previ-
ous administration, but it wasn't al-
ways so rosy.
Reilly's experiences did not go
unnoted by Johnson, a Unite Party
member and former Senate presi-
dent himself, who said he doesn't
intend to dwell on his predecessor's
missteps.
"I want to do my own thing and
leave my own legacy," he said.
One of Reilly's earliest tests came
last May when Student Body Trea-
surer Paul Drayton came under fire
by the Orange and Blue Party for

fleeing Gainesville to take a summer
internship with JP Morgan Chase
in New York City. The decision re-
sulted in impeachment proceedings,
though Drayton kept his office.
Johnson explained that his run-
ning mates will be sticking by his
side throughout the summer.
"One of the commitments we
made when we took office was to
make sacrifices," he said.
"I think that by asking to be-
come a representative of the Student
Body, you have to understand these
sacrifices -- that this is a year-long
commitment."
In January,
Student Reilly faced his
Government own impeach-
ment proceed-
ings by the Sen-
ate minority for his participation
in last fall's private e-mail scandal,
where Reilly and three other SG offi-
cials discussed via personal, non-SG
e-mail accounts how to keep Orange
and Blue Party members out of Sen-
ate committees during the summer
session.
Six allegations were brought
against Reilly, including failure to
appoint an Image Chair in his ex-
ecutive cabinet among other e-mail-
related charges, but he was not re-
moved from office.
Johnson was hesitant to address
Reilly's role in the scandal.


"It's not an easy question by any
means," Johnson said. "And you
know, when I think about the e-mail
situation, I think that President Reil-
ly was in the wrong."

I .. l 8


However, Johnson said, it's easy
to fall down a slippery slope once
decisions are made without constit-
uents -- fellow students -- in mind.
"It's tough these days," he said.


"And you're a very busy person
when you're Student Body presi-
dent. You want your opinion to be
heard when you think that what you
have to say counts."

UF installs emergency public alert system on campus


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

UF is installing emergency speak-
ers in about 600 locations on campus
- at a cost of about $900,000.
They're being installed in every
classroom, most class labs and high-
traffic areas around campus, like the
Plaza of the Americas and the Reitz


Union North Lawn, said Kenneth
Allen, UF's emergency management
coordinator.
Almost all of the locations will
be indoors, Allen said, with about a
dozen outdoor locations.
Some of the indoor locations
will have telephones with speakers
instead of stand-alone speakers, he
said.
The system will allow UF to si-


multaneously broadcast an emer-
gency message all over campus in
addition to sending it out via text
message and through e-mail with
UF's current emergency alert sys-
tem, he said.
The installation should be com-
plete by early 2010, he said, with
about 160 locations equipped by the
end of May.
The speakers are the main part


of a $1-million emergency notifica-
tion system. The remaining $100,000
not spent on the speakers will go to
other services like text messaging,
Allen said.
Students paid for half of the costs
through the Capital Improvement
Trust Fund fee applied to tuition. UF
matched the rest of the money.
The project was given the green
light in August of 2008, Allen said,


and in March, Matherly Hall was
the first building to have the speak-
ers installed.
The system will also have the
capability to include features like
video screens and scrolling signs, he
said.
There are no immediate plans to
include screens or signs. However,
as technology changes, the system
will be able to adapt, he said.


Santa Fe College


dedicates 5 acres


to conservation


* SFC CELEBRATED
EARTH DAY TUESDAY.

By RACHAEL PINO
Alligator Writer

This year, Earth Day will
leave a permanent mark on
Sante Fe College's campus.
On Monday morning, the
school dedicated five acres of
the northwest campus to con-
servation, which signaled the
beginning of its Earth Week
2009 celebrations.
About 40 people attended
the ceremony, and guests
were given guided tours of the
wooded area afterward.
"It was a beautiful day, a
beautiful event," spokeswom-
an Bennye Alligood said, add-
ing that the rain held off just


long enough for the day to be
a success.
The natural area is part of
the campus' North Woods,
which contains live oaks, lob-
lolly pines and sinkholes and
serves as a field laboratory for
Santa Fe faculty and students.
Albert "Bud" Mayfield,
chairman for the Suwannee
chapter of the
Santa Fe Society of Ameri-
College can Foresters,
expressed the
organization's support of the
dedication as a teaching tool
and conservation effort.
The woods are often used
by Santa Fe's botany, ecology,
geology and art programs be-
cause they're close by, Alli-
good said.
"It was just the perfect habi-
tat," she said.

Restaurant features Mariachi band, 50 tequila brands


By JESSICA OSORIO
Alligator Contributing Writer
A new restaurant plans to bring
Latin flair with a modern edge to
midtown, directly across from UF
on West University Avenue.
101 Cantina is scheduled to
open in late May or early June, said
Alex Thomas, owner of 101 Down-


town.
The bar will feature live mu-
sic, which may include a Maria-
chi band, a type of Mexican mu-
sic group, said Erik Zika, general
manager of 101 Downtown and
101 Cantina.
"It's going to be a really fun at-
mosphere with people dancing on
tables, dancing everywhere," he


said. "A free-for-all."
101 Cantina's menu will feature
modern Mexican food, which will
include "Tex-Mex"
On and Southwestern in-
Campus fluences.
About 50 brands
of tequila will be offered, as well
as 35 types of margaritas, with
flavors including chocolate, mint,


Jagermeister and assorted fruits.
Zika said Cantina will provide
the only outdoor bar in Gainesville,
which will be in a tiki hut behind
the restaurant.
Thomas is comfortable expand-
ing because he feels that Gainesville
is safe from the recession, he said.
The restaurant's owners be-
lieve students aren't as affected by


the recession due to the consistent
income from loans, grants or schol-
arships, and make a good target
audience, he said.
The 101 Management Group
has started hiring for 101 Cantina
and is seeking bartenders, servers,
hostesses and cooks. Applications
are being accepted at 101 Down-
town.

The UF Libraries cut would allot for 7,900 fewer books, journals


CUTS, from page 1


90 fewer graduate assistants.
The UF Libraries budget proposal, which
would cut about $2.7 million, would result in
fewer purchases of books, periodicals, journals
and e-databases.
About 7,900 fewer books would be bought
under the proposal. Timely access to academic
research publications would also be affected,
with the biggest impact in the humanities and
social sciences.
On the library's budget blog, Judy Russell,
dean of the libraries, has posted an e-mail she
sent to Glover informing him that the Univer-
sity of Central Florida and the University of
South Florida are leaving their libraries' mate-


rials budgets untouched in their proposals.
Russell could not be reached for comment.
Under other proposed cuts, outside parties,
like mortage companies, banks and employers
would have to pay a fee to another vendor to
get employment verifications for UF employ-
ees.
Human Resource Services currently han-
dles them.
The Joint Service Pass in Review, the once-
a-year parade put on by all four branches of
UF's ROTC program the Army, Navy, Air
Forice and Marines could be cut.
The Information Technology Help Desk
could see its hours and response time affected
and UF's Performing Arts could sponsor few-
er performances.
The Latin American Studies Center could


see two classes and some summer programs
cut as well as lose an adviser for part of the
summer.
"There is some discussion about
them, and there's some misinfor-
mation about what they are."
Bernie Machen
UF President


The Graduate School could also lose a few
graduate scholarships. All proposals are worst-
case scenarios, in which a college or academic
unit could see a 10 percent cut to its budget.
Also thrown into the mix are two infor-
mational items: an across-the-board 5 percent


pay cut for UF employees that could save UF
about $40 million and three-week furloughs,
or forced vacations, for all employees. There
would be one week of furlough each semester.
The change could save about $40 million.
If the plan was implemented, UF would
have to increase class sizes and use subtitute
professor when a professor was on furlough.
UF President Bernie Machen said he's not
in favor of either proposal and said they were
only included because there has been some
discussion about how much they could save.
Machen said he wanted to put the informa-
tion on the table so the UF community can de-
cide if the ideas sound favorable.
"There is some discussion about them, and
there's some misinformation about what they
are," he said last week.


Protesters break silence in


Senate's public debate


SILENCE, from page 1

The silence was broken during
Tuesday's Senate meeting, when the
students spoke during public debate
in favor of a resolution against the
administration's decision to cut both
programs.
Unite Party Sen. Megan Vu, who
represents District A, showed sena-
tors one of the silence masks during
the meeting and said they must take
an active role in commenting on
cuts.
"This resolution asks simply for
admin to work with us," she said.
"We want to stand up and have a
voice in these budget cuts."
Unite Party Sen. Naadira Ren-
froe, who represents the sophomore
class and helped organize efforts,
said the event was intended to show
how students are silenced in their
majors and career choices through
program cuts.


The Week of Action will conclude
today when senators and other or-
ganization representatives march to
Tigert Hall to present Vice President
of Student Affiars, Patricia Telles-
Irvin, and UF President Bernie Ma-
chen with a copy of the legislation
opposing both program cuts.

"This resolution asks simply
for admin to work with us."
Megan Vu
Unite Party Senator


Before the march takes place, Vu
said, Telles-Irvin answer questions
about UF's decision at noon today
in the Reitz Union Auditorium.
"(The rally) is about using your
voice," Lauteria said, adding he
feels the cut of diversity and lead-
ership programs goes against what
UF stands for. "It's inexcusable and
shouldn't be accepted."

UF FOOTBALL

Gators to visit president


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

Hail to the Gators.
The UF football team will travel to
Washington D.C. on Thursday to be rec-
ognized at the White House for its 2008
BCS National Championship.
The Gators will be the first champion-
ship team to be recognized at the White
House during President Obama's three-
month reign as U.S. leader.
About 225 players, coaches and staff
will make the trek to the nation's capi-
tal, according to UF sports information
director Steve McClain.
The University Athletic Association
will pay for the group's travel, but trip
planning was not complete as of Monday
afternoon and therefore final expenses
could not be calculated.
The UF football team's trip to the
White House two years ago after its 2006
BCS title cost $96,000, according to a De-
cember 2007 Orange County Register re-
port.
"I've never been to Washington D.C.
or anything like that," soon-to-be-soph-
omore quarterback John Brantley said.
"I'd love to go see the House. I think it's
going to be a great experience to go up
there and meet the president and walk
around the House just so I can say I did
it."
It hasn't always been run-of-the-mill
for UF teams in D.C.
Former UF forward and current Chi-
cago Bulls starter Joakim Noah caused
quite a stir regarding the Gators basket-


ball team's trip to the White House after
its first NCAA title in 2006.
Noah almost didn't go on the trip
because of disagreements with some of
then-President George W. Bush's foreign
policies.
"I felt like I didn't want to go because
I don't particularly agree with the presi-
dent and his views and what he stands
for," Noah told The New York Times in
March 2007 regarding the trip.
"But at the same time, I felt like af-
ter talking with coach Donovan, I didn't
want to put that negative publicity on the
team. And I feel like I
love this country. I re-
ally do. I don't want to
disrespect it. If I was in
an individual sport or
something ... maybe I
wouldn't have gone."
Expect this trip to be
Obama a lot calmer.
What would Brant-
ley say if he caught President Obama
one-on-one in a hallway?
"Shoot, I don't know. 'Hi?'" Brantley
laughed.
UF offensive coordinator Steve Add-
azio also said he was excited to meet the
president.
"Why wouldn't I be?" Addazio said.
"It's a great experience. ... I went two
years ago and it was a lot of fun."
Earlier this week, Obama visited with
golfer Tiger Woods and members of the
Chicago White Sox while the team was
in town for a series against the Baltimore
Orioles. The White Sox are Obama's fa-
vorite team.


SFC splits doubleheader


* THE SAINTS CLINCHED THEIR
CONFERENCE THIS WEEKEND.

By KELSIE HOECHERL
Alligator Writer

The Mid-Florida Conference cham-
pion Santa Fe College softball team split
its doubleheader against St. Petersburg
College on Tuesday.
The Saints (47-7, 19-5 MFC) beat the
Titans in Game 1 by a 7-1 margin and
lost in Game 2 by a score of 11-1.
"The second game was a tune-up
game to get ready for states," SFC coach
Chris Ahern said. "We wanted to see
how everything worked together. The
pressure came off Saturday when we
won the conference after beating Cen-
tral Florida Community College."
Freshman Kimberly Squires (26-3)
picked up the win in the first game, giv-
ing up 1 run on three hits. She had two
strikeouts.
Squires and freshman outfielder
Lawna Hunter were responsible for
five of the game's 7 runs with two and
three RBIs, respectively.
The Saints put up 2 more runs in the
bottom of the sixth off RBIs from soph-
omore outfielders Brittany Cannon and
B.B. Jean-Francois.
"(We) definitely had to battle back
for the conference title," sophomore
third baseman Kristina Cruz said. "We
had a few more losses this season than


we did last. It's a different team and it
has great potential. We're ready to take
on states."
In Game 2, SFC struggled to put even
1 run on the board. An RBI groundout
from Hunter tied the game at 1-1 in the
first inning.
But the Titans dominated the Saints'
pitching, scoring 8 runs in the top of the
fourth inning. The game ended in the
fifth inning when the game was called
on a mercy rule.
Despite the loss, SFC still finished
the season one game ahead of Semi-
nole Community College in the MFC to
clinch the conference for the fifth time
in a row. The Saints are ranked third in
the state and No. 8 in the country.
In addition to being named confer-
ence champions over the weekend, SFC
was honored by having substantial rep-
resentation on the MFC first and second
teams. On the conference's first team
are Cannon, Hunter, Cruz and Squires.
Nadirah Nesfield, Erika Garcia, Ashley
Schmitt, Maria Gilreath and Morgan
Fortson were named to MFC's second
team.
Jean-Francois, Ali Savage, Brittany
Holick, Yahtea Benton and Carissa
Albizu received honorable mentions
in their conference, and Cannon was
named MFC Player of the Year.
"It's great," Cannon said. "I'm glad
I can help my team out in every way. I
plan on continuing that through states,
which we are going to win."

UF BASEBALL

Gators stick to winning unconventionally


Columnist


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

The Gators have created an unortho-
dox formula for winning baseball games:
Rocky starting pitching plus strong long-
relief outings plus explosive late-game hit-
ting equals success.
UF (27-14) did little to shake up that
formula in a 12-3 road win against Florida
Gulf Coast (22-15) on Tuesday in Fort My-
ers.
Junior Jeff Barfield (2-1, 3.64 ERA), who
has been one of the Gators' most reliable
starters this season, took the ball in the
first inning against the Eagles and strug-
gled early.
Barfield didn't allow a hit through the
first two innings, but he gave up 3 runs on
a home run by FGCU leadoff hitter Josh
Upchurch in the third inning.
"The 3 runs in the third, we've been do-
ing that, and that's been hurting us the last
few weeks," UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan
said.
The longball put the Eagles ahead 3-2,
and Barfield was pulled in favor of junior
Billy Bullock at the start of the fourth in-
ning. The hard-throwing right hander
went on to pitch three scoreless innings
of one-hit baseball, striking out four while
giving his offense the opportunity to take
back the lead.
"We went in to this game trying to use
the best guys we had," O'Sullivan said.


"That's why we went to Billy in the middle
there."
The Gators tied the game at 3-3 in the
fourth inning, and in the fifth inning, they
blew the game wide open.
Catcher Buddy Munroe untied the con-
test with a one-out solo home run, and


six batters later, freshman Preston Tucker
added a 3-run bomb his ninth of the sea-
son to put the Gators ahead 9-3.
UF put 3 more runs on the board in the
eighth inning behind a 2-run single from
Munroe and a little help from the FGCU

CB Haden's brother to join UF in 2010


m LIKE JOE, JORDAN ALSO
PLAYS IN THE SECONDARY.

By TYLER JETT
Alligator Writer

The members of UF's 2010
recruiting class have been like a
long-distance family, texting and
calling each other weekly.
The class' newest addition is
used to that.
Jordan Haden orally commit-
ted to the Gators on Monday,
becoming the 11th member of the
class. If that name sounds famil-
iar, it's because he is the younger
brother of current UF cornerback
Joe Haden.
"Me being here, I think, influ-
enced him, just telling him the
inside scoop about the school, not


just what the coaches and what
the recruiting people are telling
him," Joe said. "(Jordan) has his
brother, somebody that cares a lot
more about him, who can tell him
what's real."
Jordan, a safety from Ft. Wash-
ington Friendly High, knew he
wanted to play for UF even be-
fore Joe committed to the Gators.
He said he gave other schools a
chance so he could see what they
had to offer, but ultimately he was
Gainesville-bound.
"A lot of people visit a school
and only see that little bit, they
only see the good things. But
when I go to Florida, I have a
brother there that tells me every-
thing," Jordan said.
Jordan comes to Gainesville
with realistic expectations, know-
ing he will have to compete for


playing time.
When Jordan steps foot on
campus in 2010, the team will be
two-deep at the position, assum-
ing nobody declares early for the
NFL Draft. Safety Ahmad Black
talked with Jordan over the week-
end while he was
Sin town for UF's
Orange and Blue
Game and en-
Football couraged him not
to fret about the
depth chart.
"(Black) stopped to think for a
minute and was like, 'Damn man,
as long as you continue to ball,
that's going to make them work
hard,'" Jordan said.
Joe will be eligible to declare for
the NFL Draft after next season.
A player's draft stock depends
on a multitude of variables, so it


is unclear how likely it is he will
leave, but an early declaration by
Joe would mean he would miss a
chance to play with his younger
brother.
"I would definitely enjoy play-
ing with him," Joe said. "Just like
high school. Just like little leagues
because when he was younger, he
always played up to play on me
and Josh's team. It'd be just like
old times."
With Jordan's commitment,
coach Urban Meyer is now 2 for
3 in recruiting Hadens. Josh, the
brother between Joe and Jordan,
declined a UF scholarship offer
so he could play running back
for Boston College. Both Joe and
Jordan supported Josh's decision
and insist they would never pres-

finds new


life calling

Man, I got played.
I was convinced.
I was supposed to
be a sports reporter. It was ev-
erything I wanted, and it was
what I was called to be. How
did I know this? Perhaps it
was because I started writing
this col-
umn at
11:21 p.m.
when I
have an
exam the
Brian Steele next day
Steele-ing Bases that I just
bsteele@alligator.org started
studying
for. Oh, and did I mention
the six-page paper that is due
at the same time? I'm a few
paragraphs in. No worries,
it's only 11:57 now.
Sorry, professors, but I
picked Tim Tebow over you
a long time ago. I've been to
more press conferences and
interviews than classes. Dur-
ing my editing days, I cared
more about how the paper
looked the next day than what
I got on a quiz. I'd rather have
used a stronger word in a tiny
box than get five points high-
er on a test.
I don't, however, believe
you'll be seeing this byline
anywhere in the future. When
I was applying for journalism
gigs earlier this spring and
late last fall, a line in one of
my cover letters said that if
I'm not meant to be a sports re-
porter, "God has played some
well-crafted mind games with
me the past few years."
This is how I got played
and I couldn't be happier
about it.
Returning from a spring
break mission trip, God
changed my heart and showed

me the gifts He has given me. Those gifts
aren't supposed to be used in journalism.
They're better used elsewhere, and that
elsewhere, I believe, is in seminary. I'm
not sure when it may be in four months
or it may be in four years, but that's where
I'm supposed to be. I'm going to leave the
timing up to the Big Guy upstairs.
I love people and even understand
most of them and I am called to use
those gifts in more ways than just inter-
viewing, reporting and writing.
Wherever God sends me, I've had one
heckuva ride getting there. Anything I
write here doesn't do justice or provide
proper appreciation to those whom I've
dealt with and have put up with me.
I've served what I call the three-semes-
ter alligatorSports sentence, surviving 40-
to 70-hour work weeks as the Assistant
Sports Editor, alligatorSports.org Editor
and finally the Sports Editor this past fall,


a semester filled with some of the greatest
editors in the Alligator's history.
I've been around this joint for nine se-
mesters, written hundreds of stories and
endured 589 1/2 headaches.
It has all been one unforgettable, crazy,
intense, blessed ride.
And holy shnikies, I've had a lot of peo-
ple who helped me get on this trip.
Ian Fisher, who for some reason took a
chance on me with only horrid high school
clips, worked with me and forgave my
rookie mistakes. If you don't remember
Extra lannings, that shows you how old I
am.
Nobody and this isn't close had
as big of an impact on my writing as Louis
Anastasis. If Louis didn't take as much
time with me as he did, I wouldn't be writ-
ing this today. He pushed me, and when I
turned in something that wasn't horrible,
he said how proud he was of me. Thank
you so much, friend.
I learned how to run a sports staff from
Nick Zaccardi. Nick, you were the ulti-


mate sports editor for a college paper, and
I was extremely fortunate to be able to sit
by you every night. If you guys want to
talk about a guy doing what he's meant to
be doing, Nick is supposed to be a sports-
writer. You were not only a colleague, but
also a friend. On Nick's Facebook page, he
says he never forgets people who have had
an impact on his life. You, my friend, have
touched mine.
Even Bryan Jones who thought be-
ing sports editor was worse than trying
to formulate a defensive gameplan for
Tim Tebow, Percy Harvin and Jeff Demps
- left a mark. You were great where it
counted. You were a loyal and true friend
and someone who cared more about us as
people than about the 300 to 500 words
we'd write for you each night.
If you guys want to know somebody
whose byline you can keep reading, watch
out for Evan Drexler. He's a sports report-
ing stud, and he is going to kick some se-
rious butt in this business. Plus, he made
sense of my incoherent sayings last fall


when we worked side-by-side every night.
Evan, if you can do that, the rest of this
business is a piece of cake.
To the rest of the current staff, there's so
much talent here it's ridiculous. Go break
stories and write features that make Sports
Illustrated drool. The sports section is in
great hands.
Residents of Gainesville and visitors to
alligatorSports.org, whatever you do with
your life, make sure you touch others. That
can be in any field, wherever your passion
lies.
I don't care if you have the emotional
depth of a cactus, but when anybody gets
passionate about something, those around
you notice. This is what matters. It's an
awfully lonely world if we go through life
alone.
Thank you all so very much for allow-
ing me anywhere from 350 to 2,000 words
of your newspaper space on any given day
for the last nine semesters. I've been far

sure each other to go to schools they didn't like.
"If UF didn't get Jordan, I wouldn't try to get
him to come here," Joe said. "Josh is not the UF-
style running back, so I would never try to get my
brother to come."
Even without getting Josh to commit, Meyer
has a well-established relationship with the Ha-
den family. When Joe visited Gainesville as a re-
cruit, the whole family met Meyer in his office.
Jordan then a high school freshman let Mey-
er know which school was his favorite.
"I always liked Florida, so I would play
around," Jordan said. "I would say, 'I'm going to
go grab my jersey.'"
Meyer might want to reserve a couple more
uniforms: Jonathan Haden is in ninth grade and
Jacob is in seventh.
CHRISTIAN BECOMES COMMITMENT NO. 12: Hours
after Jordan announced he was coming to UF, the
Gators received their 12th oral commitment in
Gerald Christian. Like Haden, Christian has ties
to UF.
Christian, a tight end from West Palm Beach
William T. Dwyer High, is the teammate of fellow


future Gator Matt Elam.
"I wanted to go to a school with one of my
teammates. I know I can't base it off just that, but
it did help some," Christian said. "Matt was my
biggest recruiter, to tell you the truth. He was tell-
ing me like every game I needed to go to Florida
with him."
Christian has received offers from most South-
eastern Conference teams but chose UF because
he liked the team's strong fan base and The
Swamp's atmosphere when he visited during last
season's game against Miami.
He said he knew UF was the school for him
after attending a team practice last week. UF wide
receivers coach Billy Gonzales took Christian and
his mom, Mary Brown, on a tour of the campus
and talked to them about the team's tutoring sys-
tem. The 6-foot-3,220-pound tight end has the op-
portunity to watch players similar to him in UF's
offense.
"(The UF coaches) want me to play like Aaron
Hernandez," he said. "They see how big I am and,
for my size, how athletic I am."
Oral commitments are non-binding until a nation-
al letter of intent is signed on National Signing Day
on Feb. 3, 2010.

RUNA WA y SUCCESS

Athletically gifted Taylor finds niche in track


By TONI-ANN MILLER
Alligator Writer

Most average people wish for the
skill and talent to excel in one sport,
maybe two if they're lucky. But for oth-
ers, the possibilities are endless. When a
person is blessed with the innate talents
that Christian Taylor is, the sky is the
limit.
With an athletic physique, a slender
build and the speed of a gazelle, Taylor
is the archetype of the multi-sport ath-
lete. Growing up, he played soccer and
football, excelling in both. However,
after a series of unexpected events, he
would add another sport to his reper-
toire in his first year of high school.
The newest addition, track and field,
quickly became his greatest passion.

From Football to Track
Taylor's journey to track and field
was an unusual one. Unlike the other
sports he played, he got into track and
field on a whim.
In his first year of high school, Tay-
lor decided to run track as a joke, for
high school's sake, but he began tak-
ing the sport seriously his junior year.
He started traveling with a club track
team, which solidified track as his new-
est forte.
Taylor had little difficulty dropping
what had long been his favorite sports
and embarking on a path with his new-
found love. His cousin, a football play-
er, made his decision a lot easier, and
the early success he had in the sport
closed the deal.


"Football was an easy thing (to drop).
I'm not a big contact person. I feel like if
I can run fast, the only contact I have is
just high-fives," Taylor said.
His cousin was often injured, so Tay-
lor knew track and field's non-contact
environment was better for him.
The wins rolled in for him through-
out high school. By the end of his four
years, Taylor had compiled a lengthy
list of accolades.
He and his team won back-to-back
Class-6A track and field state champi-
onships in 2007 and 2008, and he was
named Georgia's 2008 Gatorade Athlete
of the Year.
His legacy includes the Georgia High
School Athletic Association records for
long jump, triple jump and the 400-me-
ter dash.
Of all his accomplishments, there is
one that stands above the rest to Taylor:
the 2007 World Youth Championship
triple-jump crown.
"Winning World Youth (in 2007)
was pretty big for me because that was
the time where track started to become
my life, and to be so successful so early
was pretty good," Taylor said.
He would carry his high school suc-
cess into the next phase of his life.

From Fayetteville to Gainesville
UF's coaching staff had Taylor on its
radar as soon as he entered the sport.
The Gators admired his competitive-
ness and natural talents.
"When we were recruiting Christian,
we knew he was a big-time guy and a
big-time talent," coach Mike Holloway


said.
Choosing UF was a fairly simple
decision for Taylor and his family, es-
pecially after his mentor praised Hol-
loway.
"Coming in, my old coach was like,
'Coach Mouse (Holloway) is gonna take
care of you no matter what,'" Taylor
said. "To have that kind of reference
was pretty big for me."
When Taylor arrived in Gainesville,
he was immediately faced with his first
taste of college athletic adversity: a
coaching change.
Growing up, Taylor was accustomed
to having long-term coaches. So when
UF's field events coach, Rana Reider, -
who had been at UF since 2006 left to
pursue opportunities elsewhere, Taylor
couldn't quite grasp the change.
After Reider's departure, another
assistant coach, Brian O'Neal, began
working with Taylor.
Taylor and O'Neal found they shared
common goals and had high expecta-
tions, so they quickly clicked.
"Coach O'Neal sets high standards
out there, which is great because I like
to step up to the plate," Taylor said.
"He's always telling me what I could
do, but also he's been a friend and that's
a big thing.
"If I don't want to talk about track,
he's been there just to be real. It's helped
a lot."
The chemistry between Taylor and
his coach would set the stage for un-
precedented success during his first in-
door season as a Gator.

Close-knit family ensures freshman athlete's success on, off track


TAYLOR, from page 31

A Humble Champion
In possibly the most outstanding perfor-
mance by a freshman in UF history, Taylor
highlighted his first indoor season by win-
ning the men's long jump, triple jump and
4x400-meter relay, earning him the cov-
eted Commissioner's Cup, given to the top
point scorer at the Southeastern Conference
Championships.
"Coach O'Neal was talking about the
Commissioner's Trophy for so long," Tay-
lor said. "My main goal was just get as
many points as I can for the team. Whether
it was second, third, no matter what, I was
gonna give it my all."
Taylor's performance impressed his
teammates and coaches alike, but he did
not allow success to affect his behavior to-
ward others or his hardworking approach
to his craft.
"The best thing about him as an athlete
and as a person is his caring attitude to-
wards his event, his teammates, his desire
to be the best and to push his teammates to
be the best," O'Neal said. "The thing that
separates Christian from some of the other
elite guys is that he understands how tal-
ented he is and he's willing to work hard at


his craft to be even better."


Taylor's desire to please his relatives
stemmed from his father encouraging both

that success until he moves on from UF.
When that day comes, he hopes to have
made an impact on his sport and on the
people around him.
"In the end, I want the coaches and my
teammates to (say), 'He got the job done.
He's a funny guy, but when business needs
to get done, he takes care of it,'" Taylor
said.
His teammates have already begun to
acknowledge this quality.
"He's a laid-back, goofy type of dude -
cool to hang with," junior sprinter Calvin
Smith said.
"(On the track), he's focused, ready to
get the job done. He won't quit on you.
He's gonna go 110 percent no matter what
it is."
Holloway is sure Taylor will have an im-
pact on the sport, not solely because of his
talents, but also because of his personality.
"The thing that is gonna make Christian
a world-class athlete someday is that he's a
world-class person," Holloway said. "You
can't coach that. Give that credit to his par-
ents for the way he was raised."
Clearly Stephanie and Ian did their part,
and they did it well.
The rest is left to the gifted legs of Chris-
tian Taylor.
