UF ADMINISTRATION


UF could I
By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer

UF is looking at a possible $49-million cut
in state funding next year, now that the state's
budget has been finalized by the House and


ose $49M from state next year


Senate.
The budget still needs to be approved by
Gov. Charlie Crist.
The budget includes about $21 million in
tuition revenues from the differential tuition
bill recently passed by the Legislature and
signed by Crist. The bill allows universities


to raise tuition by up to 15 percent each year,
though UF already had the ability to raise it by
that much for some students.
UF is expected to receive about $42 mil-
lion next year in federal stimulus funds, which
makes up for most of the cut, but UF President
Bernie Machen has said he will not use the


funds to cover cuts that affect costs that occur
every year, like salaries.
UF is expected to receive another stimulus
payment of about the same size for the 2010-
2011 year.

GPD to review


hiring process

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer

After publicly apologizing for recent cases of po-
lice misconduct to more than 50 community members
at a meeting Monday, City Manager Russ Blackburn
discussed future plans for the Gainesville Police De-
partment.
"Over the past year, GPD has experienced a num-
ber of actions that don't reflect the character of our de-
partment," Blackburn said.
He said GPD plans to move forward
Local from those actions by building a better
News and stronger department for the future.
The first step in this process, Black-
burn said, will be to conduct an organizational review
of GPD.
Blackburn has made a proposal to the National
Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives,
NOBLE, asking it for assistance in the investigations.
SThe review will look at the recruitment, interview-
ing, hiring, orientation and discipline processes.
After six GPD officers underwent internal investi-
gations in the past year for unprofessional behavior,

UF student dies in Crescent Beach surfing accident


* HIS FUNERAL WAS HELD MAY 6.

By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

Ronald Stiles III, a UF senior and recreation
sports major, died in a surfing accident at
Crescent Beach, Fla., on April 30.
Stiles disappeared while surfing, and offi-


cers were contacted after his white surf board
washed up on shore without him on it, accord-
ing to a police report.
Stiles' body was found after officers
searched the area, the report said. He was not
breathing and had no pulse.
Stiles was then taken to Flagler Hospital
where he was pronounced dead.
Aside from surfing and school, Stiles also
worked at Cafe Gardens as a member of the


kitchen staff.
His manager, Devon Vlason, said he was
always punctual, a hard worker and very reli-
able.
Vlason said the two would
State always talk about music, which
News was another of Stiles' passions.
"He loved music," he said.
"He listened to everything from punk rock to
country."


Vlason said he was a soft-spoken guy, but
Stiles was never short of a funny story to tell,
adding he always knew how to make the other
kitchen staffers laugh.
"He has a kind soul and a good spirit," he
said. "He really cared for his friends."
According to UF spokesman Steve Orlan-
do, Stiles' funeral was held on May 6.
Orlando said he did not know if UF has
plans of holding a memorial in Stiles' honor.


Man robs local convenience store, shoots clerk in head with BB gun


A man was arrested Sunday night after
police say he shot a convenience store clerk
in the head with a BB gun during a robbery to
"gain street cred" for his rapping career.
At about 9:30 p.m. Friday, a man walked
into the Super Stop Food Store, 2561 SW 31st
Place, holding a BB gun and demanding
money. When the store clerk tried to grab
the gun, the man shot the clerk in the head,
Gainesville Police Department spokesman
Keith Kameg said. Then the man and his ac-


complice, who was waiting outside with a
second BB gun, ran away empty-handed, the
report stated. Kameg said GPD received a tip
that Steven Gilmore, 21, robbed the store.
Officers obtained a warrant to search
Gilmore's apartment and found the two BB
guns and the bandana Gilmore wore during
the robbery, Kameg said. In an interview,
Gilmore told officials of his rapping aspira-
tions, Kameg said.

STATE
Fla. Gov. Crist expected to
seek US Senate seat
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -
Popular GOP Gov. Charlie Crist
has set his sights on a U.S. Senate
seat, a prize that could help his
chances if he decides to run for
president and boost his struggling
party even if he doesn't.
Republican Sen. Mel Martinez
announced in December he won't
seek re-election in 2010. Crist is
expected to announce via e-mail
Tuesday that he's running for the
seat, and his strong name recog-
nition and high approval ratings
make him the immediate favorite.
Perhaps more importantly, the
race could raise his profile if he
wants to challenge President Ba-
rack Obama in 2012.
Crist, 52, was coy Monday when
asked about his political plans sev-
eral times after an event at a local
retirement home complex.
"Maybe I'll have something
more to say about that tomorrow,"
he replied. "I think I'll issue a state-
ment."
But state GOP chairman Jim
Greer says he believes Crist, whose
was on the list of possible 2008
GOP vice presidential candidates,
will seek the seat.

Shuttle Atlantis blasts off
on last Hubble mission
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP)
- Space shuttle Atlantis and a crew
of seven thundered away Monday
on one last flight to the Hubble
Space Telescope, setting off on a
daring repair mission that NASA
hopes will lift the celebrated obser-
vatory to new scientific heights.
Atlantis rose from its seaside
pad about 2 p.m. and arced out
over the Atlantic, ducking through
clouds. The Hubble was directly
overhead, 350 miles up.
For the first time ever, another
shuttle was on a nearby launch
pad, primed for a rescue mission if
one is needed because of a debris
strike.
After seven months of delay,
the astronauts were anxious to
get started on the complicated,
riskier-than-usual job at Hubble.
They were two weeks away from
launching last fall when a critical
part on the telescope failed and
picture-taking ceased. NASA de-
cided it wanted to take up a spare
to replace the broken unit, and it
took months to get it ready.
"At this point, all I've got left
to say is, 'Let's launch Atlantis,"'
commander Scott Altman said just
before liftoff.
"Enjoy the ride, pal," replied
launch director Mike Leinbach.
Atlantis should reach the orbit-
ing telescope Wednesday.

Defense attorneys say Green

The 24-year-old Green, a for-

dier from Texas, was convicted
last week in the 2006 attack on a
14-year-old girl and her family in
Mahmoudiya, Iraq.
Jurors are expected to hear
testimony for much of the week
before deciding if Green receives
a death sentence or life in prison
without parole.

Weather, better mowing spur growth of wildflowers


By MICHAEL HERBERT
Alligator Contributing Writer

Motorists may notice more fi-
ery-red Indian Paintbrush, golden
Tickseed, multitoned Phlox and
several other species of wildflow-
ers along Florida's roads and high-
ways.
This season is yielding large
quantities of wildflowers for sev-
eral reasons, including weather
and better mowing practices, said
Gina Busscher, the Department of
Transportation's public informa-
tion director for the 2nd District.
The combination of winter rains
and late spring cold snaps helped
delay the blooms and increase the
yield, though the bloom period
may be cut short without more
rain, she said.
Additionally, better mowing
practices by contractors may ac-
count for increases in wildflow-
ers, especially along roads. The
department contracts out most of
the mowing along roadways and
has been training contractors to
avoid cutting flowers before they
produce seeds.
"They can't go to bloom if you
cut them off too early," Busscher
said.
Though the program, which has
been planting in the area for about
25 years, is primarily aesthetic in


nature, it does save the depart-
ment from contracting at least one
mowing cycle, she said.
The 2nd District, which in-
cludes Alachua and 17 other coun-
ties, receives about 940 pounds of
seed from Tallahassee annually as
part of the state's beautification
plan, costing anywhere between
$30 and $50 per pound, according
to Busscher.
Walter Judd, a botany professor
at UF, is skeptical of the benefits of
the program.
"I'm not convinced we're see-
ing an increase in wildflowers,"
said Judd, making a distinction be-
tween the department's roadside
seeding and naturally occurring
flowers.
Judd is concerned that people
are becoming too complacent
when they see the department's
work and said he fears a continu-
ing decrease in naturally occurring
wildflower populations due to hu-
man involvement and decreases in
pollinator populations.
Additionally, the importing of
seeds from other states concerns
Judd.
"Sometimes the genotypes
might not match the genotypes of
the ones in Florida," he said. "It is
having an impact on the genetic di-
versity in the environment."
According to Busscher, most

Harn celebrates 'everyday' artwork of local students


* THE EXHIBIT FEATURES MORE
THAN 100 PIECES OF ART.

By NATALIE ARRIETA
Alligator Contributing Writer

A partnership between the Harn Muse-
um of Art and the Alachua County school
system is breeding the next generation of
student Picassos.
More than 100 pieces of "everyday art"
by Alachua County student artists from
kindergarten through 12th grade are on
display in the Chandler Auditorium until
May 17.
The exhibit features artwork from about
30 schools, with pieces such as landscape
paintings, collages, photographs and hand-


printed robes inspired by African textiles.
"This partnership represents the Harn
Museum's continuing relationship with
the Alachua County school system and
supports the museum's mission to pro-
mote the power of the arts to inspire and
educate people and enrich their lives,"
said Bonnie Bernau, director of education
at the Harn.
"[It] provides the museum with an ex-
cellent opportunity to celebrate student
artists and the dedication of local art teach-
ers while endorsing our mutual dedication
to ensuring that the arts are an important
part of children's lives," Bernau said.
The displayed artwork represents the
climax of a full year of study, which in-
cluded a teacher workshop in the fall, a
guided visit to the Harn for students and


"Student artists were inspired by
good teaching and by seeing real
art. One artist always influences

classroom instruction about using the mu-
seum's educator resource unit.
"Student artists were inspired by good
teaching and by seeing real art," Berneau
said. "One artist always influences anoth-
er."
A reception was held on April 23 to rec-
ognize students whose work is featured in
the exhibition. More than 200 people at-
tended the reception, including parents,


art teachers and school principals in an ef-
fort to support the arts.
At the reception, students received cer-
tificates from their art teachers.
Florida Capital Bank sponsored the ex-
hibit and reception and will select 21 stu-
dent works to display in the bank's office
for a year after the exhibit closes.
Justine Michael, a senior at F.W. Buch-
holz High School in Gainesville, has her
photograph of paint peeling off of a wall
on display.
"I wanted to be able to show a different
perspective of something people see every
day and to make them think," she said.
"It felt great when I saw my artwork
on display," Michael said. "Just having it
among the art of great people is an amaz-
ing thought."

Arredondo Cafe


opens in Reitz


By ALLIE CONTI
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Arredondo Room re-
opened as the Arredondo Caf6
on the fourth floor of the Reitz
Union Monday.
The caf6, which serves
buffet-style meals and offers
a panoramic view of Ben Hill
Griffin Stadium, is the result
of construction that combined
the Arredondo Room and
the Micanopy Room, as well
as upgrades that brought the
40-year-old section of the Reitz
up to code, according to Mike
Mironack, director of opera-
tions at the Reitz Union.
"We've improved the look,
feel and function of the room
while satisfying some infra-
structural needs," Mironack
said.
The construction costs,
which fell between $500,000 and
$700,000, included the installa-
tion of a permanent buffet line


as well as new lights, furniture,
window treatments and speak-
ers. New restrooms were also
built in the fourth-floor lobby.
"We've improved the
look, feel and function of
the room while satisfy-
ing some infrastructural
needs."

Customers slowly trickled in
and out of the caf6 during its in-
ception. UF sophomore Natalie
Nelson said she enjoyed being
one of the few people there.
"Lot of food, quiet location,
excellent view," she said.
The Arredondo Caf6 will be
open from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Monday through Friday during
Summer A and B.


Commissioners criticize Shands CEO for missing forum


By LAUREN IRIZARRY
Alligator Contributing Writer

Frustrated questions regarding the closure
of Shands at Alachua General Hospital went
unanswered as Timothy Goldfarb, Shands
CEO, was not present at a special meeting
held by the Alachua County Commission on
May 5.
Instead, a two-page letter from Goldfarb
and a team of assistants recording questions
and concerns filled his place.
In the letter, Goldfarb expressed gratitude
toward commissioners for meeting with him
individually regarding the impending hospi-
tal closure, scheduled for October.
However, some commissioners felt it was
a mistake for Goldfarb to miss an opportunity
for discussion in a public forum.
"I am very saddened he's not here, that no
one is here to speak on [Shands'] behalf," said


Commissioner Rodney Long. "This is a very
important community issue."
Despite Goldfarb's absence, community
advisory groups presented suggestions for
dealing with the loss of health care services.
Jean Munden, Alachua County Health De-
partment administrator, said the loss of AGH
will increase demand for services such as ba-
sic medical care, which would be offered by
the health department. To meet the demand,
the department would begin to offer extended
business hours by July, Munden said.
Beyond the impact of straining other area
hospitals with patient overflow, the loss of a
community hospital is a concern for several
community group representatives.
Ed Jennings Jr., chairman of CHOICES,
a county health care service provider for the
uninsured, said health care access would be
problematic for many residents.
"The conversation needs to be about what


to do now," Jennings said. "How do we make
sure primary care is provided to our most
needy citizens?"
"The conversation needs to be
about what to do now."
Ed Jennings Jr.
chairman of CHOICES

According to Jennings, about 20 percent of
Gainesville's 250,000 residents live in poverty.
Social services program director Candie
Nixon echoed Jennings' concerns, saying,
"Poor people will not have access to primary
care with AGH closing."
In an effort to curb an influx of patients
needing primary care, Goldfarb noted in his
letter that Shands is working with Solantic, an
urgent-care provider, to open a center at Ayers
Medical Plaza.


Other issues raised included employee
placement, increased emergency room wait
times and the impact on rural bordering coun-
ties. Levy County Emergency Medical Ser-
vices Director Trish Seibold said roughly a
quarter of the county's 39,000 residents go to
AGH for services.
With only seven total ambulances for the
entire county, Seibold said the increased wait
time for an emergency bed poses a problem.
"Our wait times are anywhere from 20
minutes to an hour," she said. "With the hos-
pital closing, we're looking at one-to two-hour
wait time."
The impact on rural counties is one conse-
quence among many that commissioners hope
to discuss in a future meeting tobe held within
the next 90 days.
Goldfarb is being pressured by the com-
mission to appear at the meeting or provide a
representative to address citizen concerns.


Private funding might save two programs

one-time money for recurring expenses," UF spokes-
woman Janine Sikes said.
She said there are still many details about UF's bud-
get that need to be worked out.
"It's unclear at this point what will be cut, how
much will be cut and how it will be cut," she said.
Sikes said Machen will brief UF's Faculty Senate on
Friday about the budget.
Machen plans to submit his final budget recom-
mendations to the Board of Trustees, UF's highest gov-
erning body, later this month.
The board will take the final vote on the budget.
Under the current version, UF's state funding in
2009-2010 would be reduced to about $540 million, not
including tuition appropriations, Sikes said.
This is down from about $702 million in 2006-2007.
UF's expected cut next year is about $23 million to
$26 million less than the $72 million to $75 million re-
duction that UF had been preparing for.
"We are in a little bit better shape than we would
have been," Sikes said.
Machen asked all colleges and administrative units
in January to present 10 percent budget cut proposals


to the Provost's office by April 1. They were released to
the public on April 16.
A week after the proposals were posted online,
UF's Vice President for Student Affairs Patricia Telles-
Irvin announced that two programs in her office the
Center for Leadership and Service and Multicultural
and Diversity Affairs were no longer in danger of
being cut.
"These programs are too precious to me and the
university," she told about 50
UF students at a question-and-
Administration answer session in the Reitz
Union Auditorium.
She said she would try to find private funds to cover
the $508,000 cost of the programs, which include pro-
grams for black, Hispanic, Asian and LGBT students.
"The funding will be there; I will just have to find a
different strategy," Telles-Irvin said.
Despite the announcement, about 30 students
marched from the Reitz Union to Tigert Hall, where
they delivered an oversize letter signed by students to
Telles-Irvin, urging the administration to work with
students on the budget cut issue.
About 10 students then held a sit-in in the waiting
area outside Telles-Irvin's office.

ings to Blackburn and a focus
group that will make recom-
mendations for changes to
GPD's command staff.
At the meeting, Blackburn
also discussed the search for a
new chief of GPD.
Twenty-four people have
applied for the position, after a
week of advertising, he said.
GPD's human resource de-
partment will pick the top 10
applicants and a selection com-
mittee will narrow that down
to four or five, Blackburn said.
"Expect a very intensive,
painful process that draws out
the best in the candidate and
puts them under the maximum


amount of stress," he said.
Blackburn is also plan-
ning a public reception where
Gainesville citizens will be
given the change to meet the
finalists and ask them difficult
questions.
When the finalists are asked
to leave the room, Blackburn
will talk to citizens about
whom they think will best fill
the position.
Although current Chief
Norman Botsford has agreed
to continue his duties as chief
until Nov. 1., Blackburn said
he will make the decision for a
new chief in early August.
The meeting was sponsored
by the African American Ac-
countability Alliance.

The Florida Supreme Court indefinitely delayed the execution
of death row inmate John Marek, who was scheduled to die by
lethal injection on Wednesday at Florida State Prison near Starke.
The stay, which was announced Monday, comes 25 years af-
ter Marek was convicted for kidnapping, raping and strangling
Adella Simmons.
A hearing is set for May 20, when Marek's attorneys will argue
that Marek's accomplice, Raymond Wigley, murdered Simmons.
The stay was granted based on testimonies by fellow inmates
that Wigley tearfully confessed to murdering Simmons, said Mil-
ton McClain, Marek's attorney. In 2000, Wigley was strangled by
an inmate while serving his life sentence.
"The state has tried to argue that [Wigley] may have been try-
ing to act tough and impress people in prison," McClain said. "But
the manner in which he confessed does not reflect that. Ray broke
down crying and admitted that he did it."


Since Marek's 1984 conviction, his attorneys have appealed
to the Florida Supreme Court six times, and to the U.S. Supreme
Court twice.
Marek was also granted stays in 1988 and 1989. Gov. Charlie
Crist signed Marek's death warrant in late April alongside that of
David Johnston.
Johnston was convicted of strangling 84-year-
old Mary Hammond in Orange County in 1983.
Crist has signed five death warrants since Flori-
da's 17-month capital punishment hiatus ended
in April of 2008.
Court and legal fees for death row inmates
are costly to the state, said UF criminology pro-
fessor Ronald Akers.
Marek The average prisoner execution in Florida
costs around $3.2 million, while the cost of im-
prisoning the same person for life is about $600,000, according to a
1997 press release on a capital punishment study in which Akers
participated. Akers said that the death penalty does little to deter
crime, and he feels that it's not worth the cost.
"It becomes a more pointed argument in times of economic
downturns, but that argument has always been there," Akers
said.

Florida had 55 confirmed cases of swine
flu, including one UF student, as of Mon-
day afternoon, according to the Florida De-
partment of Health.
The UF student, a 19-year-old female
whose identity will not be released, is the
only confirmed case in Alachua County.
The student visited the Student Health
Care Center April 27 with flu-like symp-
toms. She left Gainesville for her home-
town two or three days later, UF spokes-
man Steve Orlando said.
The student had mild symptoms and
has fully recovered, according to an e-mail
sent to UF students last week.
Additionally, there have been four prob-
able cases of the swine flu in Florida. The
state has accounted for about 2 percent of
the 2,600 total confirmed cases in the U.S.,
as of Monday afternoon.


"We'll keep watching and hope
that things will calm down."
Susanne Hill
UF international center interim executive
director

Despite concerns about swine flu,
which is suspected to have come from
Mexico, UF's two summer study abroad
programs in Mexico are expected to con-
tinue as scheduled. A total of 45 students
are signed up to study in Guadalajara and
Merida, said Susanne Hill, interim execu-
tive director of UF's International Center.
The program starts June 24.
"We have six weeks before the program
starts," Hill said. "We'll keep watching and
hope that things will calm down."
If necessary, she said UF will make
changes to the programs, but she doesn't
want to see any hasty decisions made.
"These students are counting on getting
(class) credit," she said.


She said her office has not received calls
or e-mails asking about UF's plans for the
summer programs.
While no students have pulled out of
UF's trips, two students out of a group of
about 15 have canceled their plans to par-
ticipate in an independent program in Gua-
dalajara this summer, Hill said.
UF's graduation ceremonies earlier
this month also proceeded as planned.
About 9,200 students applied for degrees
this spring and more than 7,100 students
walked, Orlando said. Unlike some other
universities, UF decided not to ban hand-
shakes in response to the swine flu out-
break.
UF decided the outbreak wasn't as seri-
ous as previously believed, Orlando said.
"We also took into account the fact that
this is a pretty important event for people,
when they graduate and get to shake the
(university) president's hand," he said.
"For many students, this is the only time
they get to meet the president."

Editorial

'Slumpbuster'

Obama sees value of

education to economy
With a slumping economy and a skyrocketing un-
employment rate, President Barack Obama has
turned to higher education with hopes of getting
America back on track.
In an announcement made on Friday, Obama spoke of
plans to help unemployed individuals remedy their current
situations by returning to the classroom. One of the major
deterrents keeping citizens from going back to school lies in
the fact that unemployed individuals sacrifice their benefits
if they elect to head back to a college campus. But thanks to
Obama's plan, unemployed Americans can pursue a degree
while maintaining their current compensation.
Suddenly every student's nightmare of sitting next to
Mom during lecture has come to fruition.
According to an article on CNN.com, the Department of
Education plans to contact colleges and universities across
the country to help with the transition process. Addition-
ally, Obama's initiative will increase limits on federal Pell
Grants by $500 to a maximum of $5,350 money allocated
for low-income students. News of Obama's efforts comes in
the wake of word revealing the country's unemployment
rate has hit a 25-year-high at 8.9 percent during the month
of April.
The Editorial Board applauds Obama for realizing the
value of higher education to help America turn the corner
during the current economic crisis. By making it easier for
unemployed people to further themselves through educa-
tion, Obama has taken the steps necessary to create a work-
force better suited for the ever-expanding global economy.
With more individuals earning college degrees, America's
economy will transition from one relying on factory work-
ers to one relying on knowledge-based skills.


Craigslist
While the mean streets
of Gainesville often
provide for hilarity
in terms of criminal hijinks,
the true epicenter of absur-
dity running rampant resides
just a bit down the road.
Word out of Chiefland
reveals news of a crime so
ridiculous that we just knew
Craigslist had to be involved.
According to an article in
The Gainesville Sun, Chief-
land police arrested a man
pretending to be a woman of-
fering "man rubs" on Craig-
slist at the rate of $200 per
hour. Arthur Ramos or "Hel-
en Bedd" as he was known to
his customers, was charged
with prostitution after police
went undercover on the bul-
letin board-style Web site to
set up a "casual encounter."
After an exchange of $250
was made at an area hotel, an
undercover agent made the
arrest of Ramos.
Interestingly enough, Ra-


Gone Wild
mos conceded the fact that he
was a prostitute even go-
ing as far as to rationalize his
profession by claiming it was
the oldest job in the world. In
addition to the services he of-
fered in North Central Flori-
da, Ramos ran a prostitution
ring in Miami.
For the Chiefland Police
Department, the arrest of
Ramos marks the first time
in which the Internet played
a major role in catching a
criminal.
The Editorial Board can't
help but laugh hysterically
over the plight of Ramos. At
this point, we remain a bit
perplexed by what exactly
customers were expecting
when they rendez-voused
with the Craigslist hustler.
As the ad promised "full-ser-
vice" from a female call-girl,
we can only assume jaws
dropped succinctly with the
removal of pants to reveal
Ramos as all man.

Column

Failure of car industry falls on consumers


don't like Chryslers. Or Fords. Or, for that matter,
anything GM makes.
I do like their old cars. The sight of a '63 Corvette
Sting Ray is heavenly. But I would rather avert my eyes
away from the newer cars pumped out of Detroit.
It seems I'm not the only one who has had qualms
about Pontiac's spiderweb-like rear lights, Ford's ugly
interiors and Chrysler's inflated retail prices. Ameri-
cans have been turning to foreign manufacturers to take
care of their American dream for at least a decade now.
Hyundai and Kia are no longer joke manufacturers, now
offering cars with better mileage and quality for less than
their American counterparts. Ford, Chevy and Dodge
are no longer the obvious choice when it comes to pick-
ing out a new truck, either. Have you seen the made-in-
America Toyota Tundra lately?
Ford, GM and Chrysler haven't been able to find the
confidence to take a long and hard look at themselves
and face the bitter fact: Their product just isn't good
enough anymore. Good is an encompassing term, by the
way. Words like innovative, beautiful, valuable, efficient
and quality all fit under the definition of a 'good' car.
The Europeans make good cars. The Japanese and Ko-
reans also make good cars. Sure, they got into the game
a little late, but they've whipped Detroit faster than a '70
GTO in terms of quality, efficiency and design. Detroit
sounded its own death knell when GM fueled the race
of conspicuous consumption with the introduction of
the Hummer H2, a truck whose primary market is petite
blondes who can't see over the steering wheel and men
who have, ahem, confidence problems.
Meanwhile, everywhere else, car manufacturers fo-
cused on producing smaller and more efficient automo-


biles. Even the Detroit Big Three
were making smaller, and yes,
better looking cars in Europe. But
we didn't want them, they said.
Our car manufacturers aren't
to blame. They weren't wrong.
Matthew Christ We were wrong. Few people
letters@alligator.org pined for GM's limited produc-
tion electric car in the late 1990s
and instead waited in lines for a
chance to purchase the behemoth Ford Excursion. When
the first Toyota Prius came onto the market the customer
base consisted of those who cared so much about the en-
vironment that they scraped off their Coexist and PETA
stickers from their last car as to not waste any paper.
Bring on the Hummers most everyone else yelled. When
the gas crisis hit and today's banking and credit crisis
appeared, the Big Three were caught with their pants
down.
Now as Chrysler is reorganizing under Chapter 11
bankruptcy, and many experts predict GM will soon
follow, more power is being given to the United Auto
Workers. The single institution that holds the most re-
sponsibility in its own downfall by demanding inflated
wages and entitlement benefits, which hinders compe-
tition between foreign automakers, will now own more
than half of Chrysler LLC, positioning themselves to
shoot off their other foot.
On the bright side, Italian automaker Fiat will now
be charged with running the day-to-day operations. Yes,
this is going to work out just fine.

Column


In Tn the name of love... Oprah come
and rescue us."
SThese words were delivered in
unison by 500 people singing and dancing
in a gymnasium in Chicago as part of a 100
city campaign for Invisible Children.
The next day, with those 500 people
out in front of her studio holding up signs
of peace, Oprah concluded that they de-
served not only her attention, but the im-
mediate attention of each and every one of
her viewers.
On April 25, in 100 cities around the
world, Invisible Children, an organiza-
tion dedicated to ending Africa's longest-
running civil war in northern Uganda,
launched a large-scale event to promote
awareness for their cause called The Res-
cue.
While promoting awareness of children
who are abducted and forced to enlist into
Joseph Kony's Lord's Resistance Army,
100,000 people gathered to "abduct" them-
selves in demonstration until they could
be "rescued" by a policymaker or media
mogul.
Invisible Children is an organization


a process that was fully consistent with a
democratic process." The president warned
North Korea it would suffer "consequences"
if it went ahead with the launch of a long-
range missile, but North Korea snubbed the
U.S. and launched the missile on a 2,000-mile


that began after three filmmakers trav-
eled to Africa and found themselves taken
aback by the sight of children being used
as pawns in the Ugandan civil war. From
Australia to North America, England to
South Africa, people came from every-
where to support.
The event required people to gather at a
designated site and then march single-file
while holding onto a rope until they reach
their "abduction site."
They also had to bring portraits of
themselves to the event to leave behind,
along with enough supplies to last them
through the time that it would take for
their "rescuer" to arrive. Supplies also
included pens and paper to write letters
to their congressmen asking for more at-
tention to be paid to this issue. Most cities
were rescued successfully within the first
72 hours.
In Atlanta, congressman and legendary
civil rights figure John Lewis delivered a
powerful speech applauding the partici-
pants and urging others to give more at-
tention to this issue.
In Orange County, Calif., the band Par-


run. President Obama attempted to charm
Iran, but Iran's parliament speaker rebuked
our president and told him the U.S. has to
acknowledge 60 years of crimes against Iran,
change its policies and abandon Israel.
Appeasing and apologizing (for nothing)


Justice Souter's departure from Supreme Co


With the honorable Justice David
Souter's announcement that he
will retire from the U.S. Supreme
Court, the cheap world of our national
punditry has become a much more hysteri-
cal place than usual which, it should be
noted, is a truly impressive feat. These are
rather exciting times to be alive; it's not ev-
ery day we get to see the ideological liberals
and conservatives in our country bickering
and bashing each other. Oh. Wait a minute.
We do.
The fact of the matter is this: Souter's de-
parture is not as big an event as the news
media, in true Hearst fashion, want it to
be. Currently the court votes largely along
an ideologically even 4-4 split between lib-
eral and conservative judges with Kennedy
(note: that's Kennedy, not Souter) acting as
the swing vote. Now, Souter is one of the
traditionally liberal justices and President
Barack Obama, to whom the noble task falls


of nominating a replacement, is a bit of a lib-
eral president or a pinko-commie, if your
name is Sean Hannity.
So, that being said, is there really any
question that Obama will appoint a left-
leaning replacement? The only question is
which one, but whoever is chosen is going
to look strikingly similar to the runners-up.
The fundamental composition of the court
will not change. There is nothing earth-
shattering in any of this and, if not for the
new levels of shrillness being reached by the
pundits, I would be more excited about the
upcoming season of Californication.
(Full disclosure: I actually am more ex-
cited about that. Watch the show.)
But, as usual, just when I'm on the verge
of losing interest in the D.C. happenings -
and about to consign myself to the joys of
watching David Duchovny charm his way
into yet another woman's bed the cries of
our respected "punditocracy" rouse me from


my naive dreams.
It turns out that,
when describing what
he would look for in a
potential replacement
for Souter, Obama
Eric Chianese said something rather
letters@alligator.org scandalous.
He didn't say
that he was looking
for someone who enjoys long walks on the
beach and Richard Gere films that, you
can be sure, would have made me write a
very different column but the reaction is
as bizarre as if he had. Obama said that he
wants someone with the most terrifying of
traits: "empathy." You know -empathy. As
in the ability to understand someone else's
feelings. Seems innocuous? Think again!
My casual monitoring of the news (three
cheers for Google News) has taught me that
this is not the simple, harmless even ben-

Participants in Auckland, New Zealand,
demanded media attention from news sta-
tions before agreeing to disband from their
abduction site.
Soon, a group called the "Freedom Rid-
ers" formed, courageously traveling to af-
flicted cities after their own rescue. They
helped to build the crowd of 500 that sat
outside Oprah's studio.
Oprah embraced the demonstrators
who had endured rainstorms, nights of
sleeping outside and diets of pizza for
days straight. On air, after answering their
request to be rescued, she said, "You will

eficial quality you might think. No, em-
pathy means all sorts of wretched things,
from a taste for ignoring the law while mak-

redistribute wealth. I feel like we've finally
crossed the vale and entered the Bizarro

for so long.

Actually, I think I do. I think what it boils
down to is that, at this point, the right-wing
wailers in the media are willing to get hys-
terically upset over just about anything to do
with politics that isn't a Palin candidacy and
the mainstream news media has simply run
out of things to talk about. I hope Murrow's
ghost haunts them all in the night.

Other celebrities like Kristen Bell, Joel
Madden, Kirsten Dunst, Pete Wentz and
Jeff Foxworthy took part in the event to
draw the attention of many local and na-
tional news stations. But no media outlet
was more successful than the airtime giv-
en to the 500 people outside Oprah's stu-
dio on May 1.
In the end, over 100,000 people gathered
themselves to share their voice about their
stance concerning atrocities hundreds of
miles away.
With all the exposure and the simplic-
ity of the message stopping the war in
Uganda and the abduction of children --
many were touched by the acts of those
participating in The Rescue.
Hats off to the Invisible Children or-

participate who used their time toward
promoting the protection of basic human
rights.

Gators repeat as


champs vs. Tide


* UF ENTERS NCAAs AS
NO. 1 OVERALL SEED.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -
Even Mother Nature couldn't
stop the Gators' march to-
ward a second straight South-
eastern Conference Tourna-
ment Championship.
Saturday's title game be-
tween No. 1 UF (55-3) and No.
5 Alabama (47-9) was delayed
for an hour and a half due to
rain, but a first-inning grand
slam by shortstop Megan
Bush put the Gators ahead by
3. The Crimson Tide rallied
late, but the Gators prevailed
8-5 at Lee Softball Stadium in
Knoxville, Tenn.
"To repeat as tournament
champions and SEC cham-
pions is probably one of the
hardest things that we've ac-
complished in my coaching


career, playing with the bur-
den of being the No. 1 team
and the target and all those
things," UF coach Tim Wal-
ton said.
The Gators have worked
all season to manage the ex-
pectations and demands that
come with being the top-
ranked team in the nation.
Saturday, they had to work
just to get a strike called.
UF pitcher Stacey Nelson
(35-3, 0.43 ERA) and Ala-
bama's Kelsi Dunne (24-3,
1.45) struggled to find the
strike zone early. As a result,
the first inning and a half
lasted an hour, and Nelson
and Dunne combined for four
walks and three hit batters as
they tried to work the inside
corner, the only place either
one could get a called strike.
"I don't think I would have
wanted to be a pitcher today,"
Alabama catcher Ashley Hol-
combe said. "Sometimes you

The No. 1 Gators softball team celebrates its second straight SEC Tournament title after an 8-5 victory against
the Crimson Tide on Saturday in Knoxville, Tenn. UF came back from an early deficit to take home the trophy.


UF SPORTS ROUNDUP

What you may have missed...


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

It's only been 19 days since
the end of spring classes, but UF
sports teams have been plenty
busy during the intermission.
BASE HEATS UP: The UF base-
ball team has found its stride
despite losing two of three at
LSU this weekend. The Gators
won eight games in a row from
April 21 to May 3, including a
sweep of last year's national
runner-up Georgia in Athens.
Taking three from the Bulldogs
vaulted UF into first place in the
Southeastern Conference East
Division, and the Gators cur-
rently hold a two-game lead.
UF will play its final non-
conference game tonight when it
hosts Jacksonville before finish-
ing its SEC slate with a home se-


ries Thursday through Saturday
against Kentucky. The Gators
have clinched one of the eight
berths in the SEC Tournament.
Division winners are guar-
anteed the top two seeds, while
the other six are determined by
record.
TYUS STAYING
AT UF: Gators
sophomore
forward Alex
Tyus will be
staying in
Gainesville
Tyus
after all.
The school released a statement
regarding his decision on April
28, 10 days after he initially de-
clared his plans to go to another
school.
"It's great to know that his
heart is here at the University of
Florida," coach Billy Donovan
said in a statement.


THREE GATORS TAKEN IN NFL
DRAFT: UF continued its streak
of having a player selected in the
first round for the third straight
year when wide receiver Percy
Harvin was drafted No. 22 by
the Vikings. The Raiders draft-
ed wide receiver Louis Murphy
in the fourth round with the
124th overall selection. Tight
end Cornelius Ingram went to
the Eagles in the fifth round
with the 153rd overall pick.
Offensive linemen Phil
Trautwein and Jason Watkins,
running back Kestahn Moore
and long snapper James Smith
signed free-agent contracts after
the NFL Draft.
Trautwein went to the Rams,
and Watkins went to the Tex-
ans. The Broncos picked up
Moore while Smith went to the
Bengals.


Women go to Sweet 16


By JOSEPH R. HOLZER
Alligator Writer

Jo Mather had only enough
time to give a fist pump before be-
ing swarmed by the rest of the No.
15 UF women's tennis team after a
4-2 win against Florida State.
The freshman clinched the
match against the No. 18 Semi-
noles with a forehand that sent the
ball skidding down the sideline
past an out-of-position Lauren
Macfarlane and earned the Gators
a Sweet 16 berth in the NCAA
Tennis Championships.
The UF men will not be joining
their female counterparts, howev-
er, after falling 4-3 to No. 22 Miami
in a second-round match on Sat-
urday. No. 10 UF (18-9) downed
Marist 4-0 on Friday and took a 3-0
lead against Miami (16-8) but was
unable to get the clinching point.


The women's second-round
match on Sunday was also a roll-
ercoaster but with a happier out-
come for the Gators. The match
started similar to UF's 4-1 first-
round win against Charleston as
Florida State
struck first in
doubles on
Court 3, put-
ting pressure
Tennis on courts 1
and 2.
After Mather and Marrit Boon-
stra defeated Federica Suess and
Katie Rybakova, the doubles point
was in the hands of Jessica Alex-
ander and Anastasia Revzina. The
No. 25 tandem was down 3-2 ear-
ly but bounced back to clinch the
doubles point with an 8-4 victory
on a double fault.
"We just knew if we kept set-

Gators' postseason run last year.

Coach resigns after UF fails to qualify for NCAAs


* THE GATORS FINISHED IN
16TH OUT OF 21 TEAMS, 19
SHOTS SHY OF ADVANCING.

By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer

The UF women's golf season
came to a disappointing end this
weekend and took another turn
Monday night when coach Jill Briles-
Hinton announced her resignation.
The Gators did not qualify for the
NCAA Championships after finish-
ing in 16th place at the NCAA East
Regional on their home course this
past weekend.
They won one SEC title during
her 11 years at the helm and ad-
vanced to the NCAA Champion-
ships only six times.
"Our vision is that the women's
golf team is consistently among the
contenders at the NCAA Champi-
onships," UF athletics director Jer-
emy Foley said in a statement. "That
simply hasn't happened, and now
we begin a search for a coach that
shares that vision."
Last year's East Regional cham-
pions fell far short of qualifying this
year, shooting 68 over par to finish
in 16th out of 21 teams.
It finished 19 strokes behind the
final qualifier, eighth-place Georgia
(49 over).
The disappointing end came after


a consistent season of top-10 finishes
and was perhaps even more surpris-
ing due to its being on Gainesville's
Mark Bostick Golf Course.
"The program is better off than
when I started, but I feel it is time
to step aside and let someone else
take it from here," said Briles-Hin-
ton, 2008 Southeastern Conference
Coach of the Year, in a statement.
"I enjoyed my time at Florida, and
now I'm looking forward to spend-
ing time with my family.
"I hope to get back into coaching
someday and look forward to again
helping young golfers achieve their
dreams."
The advantage of playing athome
did not help as much as expected.
Sophomore Jessica Yadloczky, who
finished in the top 10 as an individu-
al in the last five tournaments, could
not keep her streak going.
After an uncharacteristic finish
of 76th place with a score of 22 over
par, Yadloczky summarized the
team's performance in two words.
"We sucked."
Yadloczky attributed her poor
performance to the excessive amount
of pressure she put on herself.
"I wanted it way too bad, and it
got in my way," she said. "I guess
I'm learning the hard way you
can't want it this bad."
While disappointed, the sopho-
more found some positive things to
carry into next season.

The Seminole Twilight Invita-
tional in Tallahassee proved to be
just what UF needed this weekend
as the Gators prepare for the up-
coming Southeastern Conference
Outdoor Championships.
The Gators walked away with
four event wins and 11 NCAA re-
gional-qualifying marks. The team
managed to go out and accom-
plish exactly what it set out to do
- make improvements before the
important championship stretch.
UF coach Mike Holloway be-
lieves his team's performance will
carry over as momentum into the
upcoming SEC meet.
"I've felt good about this group
all year long. The big thing is ev-
erybody here trusts each other
(and) believes in each other," Hol-
loway said. "We all have the same
focus and the same vision, and that
produces great results."
This weekend's standouts in-
cluded some usual names as well
as some new ones.
Kemal Mesic, who competed
in his first collegiate discus com-
petition Friday, threw the ninth-
best distance in UF history with
a regional-qualifying toss of 186-
7/56.88m. The sophomore from


Sarajevo, Bosnia, placed second
in the men's discus and the men's
shot put events.
Freshmen Ben Davies and Mi-
chael Anderson were responsible
for UF's two event victories on Fri-
day. Davies captured the first win
during the men's javelin, followed
by Anderson's first-place finish in
the steeplechase.
Natalie
Moser won
the women's
pole vault
with a NCAA
regional-quali-
fying leap of 13-
1.50/4.00m.
Holloway On Satur-
day, junior
Mariam Kevkhishvili won the
women's shot put after defeating
seven other women. Winning the
shot put is nothing new for Kev-
khishvili, who is the 2009 NCAA
Indoor Shot Put Champion.
As the Gators gear up for the
SEC Outdoor Championships this
week, Holloway doubts practice
for this meet will be any different
than preparation for earlier meets
this season.
"We need to continue to stay
focused and stay on task," Hollo-
way said. "Having our friends and
family here for support during the
meet will be great."


UF SOFTBALL

Gators' fortitude shows in tourney


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. At
the Southeastern Confer-
ence Tournament, the Gators
were put in a situation they
have rarely faced: having to
come from behind early in the
game.
After posting a shutout in
its 3-0 first-round win against
Auburn on Thursday, UF al-
lowed Tennessee to put up 3
quick runs on two hits and a
costly error by shortstop Me-
gan Bush on the first at-bat of
Friday's game.
But the Gators relied on
their bats to put them back in
the game, and the top of the
lineup responded.
Second baseman Aja Pacul-
ba ripped a double to center,
moved to third on a ground-
out by Kristina Hilberth and
scored on Ali Gardiner's 2-run
homer to left field.
"We learned something
about our team tonight. No
matter what the score is, we
can come back from it," UF
coach Tim Walton said after
defeating the Volunteers. "We
fought well. I think Aja actu-
ally cracked a smile and fist-
pumped for the first time in
her career.
"I really took it as a posi-


tive. We got fired up and an-
swered."
By the end of the inning, the
Gators were up 4-3, and they
never looked back. UF scored
4 more runs in the second on
back-to-back-to-back home
runs and added 1 in each of
the final three innings before
mercy-ruling Tennessee 11-3.

"That's just what our
team is like. They scored
3, and we just wanted
to answer back so they
know they can't hang
around with us."
Francesca Enea
UFjunior left fielder

"That's just what our team
is like. They scored 3, and we
just wanted to answer back
so they know they can't hang
around with us," left fielder
Francesca Enea said. "It's
what we're going to do. We're
going to score runs and give
our pitchers as much support
as possible.
"That's the type of team we
are."
UF found itself in a simi-
lar situation the next day
in Saturday's tournament
championship game against
Alabama. The Crimson Tide
scored 2 runs in the first, load-


ing the bases on a single and
two walks by Stacey Nelson.
Nelson hit Alabama catcher
Ashley Holcombe to bring in
the first run of the game. Char-
lotte Morgan crossed the plate
for the Tide on a wild pitch by
Nelson to put the Gators in a
2-0 hole.
"Alabama did a good job
capitalizing on a few breaks
for them," Hilberth said. "We
just need to do a better job of
shutting our opponents down
in the first inning."
The Gators once again
bounced back and regained
the lead thanks to a grand
slam by Bush, putting them
ahead 5-2. Although Alabama
rallied late, UF held on to se-
cure the victory.
Walton praised his team's
ability to come back from an
early deficit two days in a row
after not facing such a chal-
lenge nearly all season.
He attributed the team's
composure to its 6 a.m. work-
outs on "Gator Mountain,"
referring to the stadium steps
the team runs in the fall.
"You think you're done,
then you do another one.
Then you do another one and
another one. It's where you
get composure, where you
get your guts from," he said.
"That builds a lot more charac-
ter than most people think."

Senior catcher wins MVP to lead four Gators on All-Tournament Team

just feel like you don't know what you have
to do to get a strike called. But we had the
same situation in the first inning bases
loaded with one out and they hit the
grand slam and we didn't."
Bush benefited from the inside pitching
in the bottom of the first, as her bases-load-
ed shot to left field came on the 16th pitch
of the at-bat.
"She pitched me inside the whole time, so
I was just trying to battle and foul off, then I
got one that I could drive," Bush said.
The Gators added to their lead in the


fourth on a sacrifice bunt by Tiffany DeFe-
lice and a double by Kelsey Bruder, who
had three RBIs on the day.
Alabama responded in the top of the
fifth, as Charlotte Morgan, the SEC Player
of the Year, took a screwball from Nelson
over the scoreboard in left-center field.
The home run was the first of the season
allowed by the two-time SEC Pitcher of the
Year.
Dating back to last season, it had been
254 innings and nearly 900 at-bats since
Nelson last gave up a homer.
"Playing in Division-I college softball,
home runs are kind of inevitable, especially
to hitters like Charlotte Morgan who can


drive the ball well," Nelson said. "I wasn't

really thinking about it, but it happens."
The Gators had four players on the SEC
All-Tournament Team, including catcher
Kristina Hilberth, who was named the tour-
nament's MVP. Bruder, third baseman Cor-
rie Brooks and second baseman Aja Paculba


joined Hilberth.
Nelson said her teammate was "long
overdue" for such an award. Walton added
that Hilberth, a senior who has never made
an All-SEC team, could not have been more
deserving of the award.
"Without Kristina Hilberth, this team
doesn't function. She's a leader. I've chal-
lenged her all year to be a leader. She leads,
she blocks, she throws, she hits," Walton
said. "That's a reward right there for a kid
who's fought through the most adversity
you can face as an athlete not being very
good to being named SEC Tournament
MVP your senior season on the No. 1 team
in the country."

Boonstra said. "The second set I just

out good."
Florida State answered again
with a win in No. 2 singles, and at
3-2, it was up to Mather or Barbara
Pinterova to capture the ticket to
College Station, Texas, home to the
remainder of the team champion-
ships.
Pinterova, who won her first set
6-2, lost a second-set tiebreaker 6-7
(3), forcing a third set that never be-
gan because Mather had clinched
the match.

Mather and all I could
think about was
the end result of the match. After the
first set, (assistant coach) Dave (Ba-
logh) came over and said, 'Breathe
and relax.'"


With that advice, Mather won
the deciding set 6-3.
UF coach Roland Thomqvist said
he couldn't be more proud of his
first-year players Mather, Alex-
ander and Pinterova.
"Well, the freshmen you can't
call them freshmen anymore now -
the good thing with this year was
they all had to play," Thomqvist
said. "They all had to play a lot. The
bad thing is they had to play through
some injuries.
"There were certainly times dur-
ing the year where the youngsters in
particular could have lost confidence
because they weren't playing at the


optimal time, but all three of them
showed they were tough enough to
pull a comeback."
The Gators found even more mo-
tivation in a Seminoles team blog
that had Linder Stadium as a pit
stop to the Sweet 16.
"Certainly, they beat us two
months ago, but we've won 67
straight matches at home and, frank-
ly, beaten much better teams than
the one we played today during the
streak," Thomqvist said. "Maybe it
gave us a little bit of an edge know-
ing that they simply had Gainesville
as a stopping point on their way to
College Station."
