UF launches anti-harassment Web page


By ROBERTA 0. ROBERTS
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF took its stance against sexual
harassment to the Internet with the
launch of a new Web site Tuesday.
The page provides students
with information on sexual harass-
ment myths and facts, what to do if


a student is harassed and a free on-
line training program for students,
said Jaquie Resnick, senior adviser
to the vice president of Student Af-
fairs.
"We wanted students to have a
centralized place where they could
get information," she said. "We
want students to know that they


shouldn't have to tolerate anything
that is disrespectful or intimidating
or offensive."
Jessica Warshaver, a UF journal-
ism student, believes that the page
was created in response to recent
sexual harassment cases on cam-
pus.
"The Web page seems like a


formality type of thing," said War-
shaver, referencing an incident last
semester with a graduate student
who allegedly groped more than
30 women by telling them that they
had a bug on their bodies.
"I feel the university was cover-
ing its ass," she said.
Resnick, however, said that


the Web page was not made in re-
sponse to the groping incident but
has been in the works since last
summer.
The Web page can be accessed
through the vice president of Stu-
dent Affairs Web site at www.ufsa.

GRU to host local fair,


focus on being green


By NATALIE ARRIETA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville Regional Utility is remind-
ing residents that being green can be cost-
efficient too.
GRU is holding an energy fair Satur-
day from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Martin
Luther King Jr. Multipurpose Center.
The fair will feature energy exhibits,
live demonstrations and workshops on
how to lower utility bills.
"We're doing everything we can to
empower customers to make decisions
on how to manage their utility bill," said
Nona Jones, a community relations direc-
tor at GRU.
The energy fair hopes to capture the
attention of college students, in addition
to Gainesville's low-income residents,


Jones said.
"We are going to have workshops
throughout the day that I believe students
will really benefit from," Jones said.
"We're doing everything we
can to empower customers
to make decisions on how to
manage their utility bill."
Nona Jones
GRU Community Relations Director

The energy fair will feature workshops
such as how to set and clean an air-condi-
tioning unit, how to lower utility bills and
how to conduct energy audits.
Free lunch will be provided for the
first 150 people in attendance.


Harvard Law accepts 7


* 9 PERCENT OF THE STUDENTS
COME FROM THE SOUTHEAST.

By ASHLEY ROSS
Alligator Writer

Rutherford B. Hayes, Barack Obama
and Bob Graham once walked the halls of
Harvard Law School, and in September,
seven University of Florida graduates
will walk them too.
Toby Stock, former assistant dean of
admissions for HLS, interviews thou-
sands of applicants each year, but he
only calls about 10 percent of them to of-
fer them a spot at the most esteemed law
school in the nation.


Only about 9 percent of the admitted
students at HLS come from the south-
east.
The admitted Gators include Krysten
Rosen, Danielle D'Oyley, Jason Gross,
Elizabeth Akerman, Freddy Williams,
Hilary D'Angelo and a 2008 UF graduate,
Keely O'Malley.
"I'm not surprised by the numbers,"
Stock said in an e-mail. "UF is a great
school with some very talented kids."
Stock served as assistant dean of ad-
missions for HLS for the past three years
and personally welcomed the newly ac-
cepted class of 2012 the last class he
admitted -by phone call.

Man arrested after police find methadone, marijuana, crack in his car


A Gainesville man was arrested after police
found marijuana, crack cocaine and methadone
pills in his car during a traffic stop.
At 12:45 a.m. Tuesday, Irvin Lawrence, 62,
was stopped by a Gainesville Police Department
officer for an expired tag. The officer noticed Law-
rence seemed to be hiding something. The officer
searched Lawrence and his car and found a small
bag of marijuana in his pocket and a bag of crack
cocaine in his wallet, according to a GPD report.
The officer also found a prescription bottle with


five methadone pills in the car. The bottle had the
name Jerry Brunson on it, the report stated. Law-
rence said he bought the marijuana but was hold-
ing the crack cocaine for his friend.
He told the officer the methadone pills also
belonged to his friend, but could not identify his
friend's name until he read the bottle. Lawrence
was charged with two felonies of possession of a
controlled substance and one misdemeanor pos-
session of less than 20 grams of marijuana.

STATE
Panel OKs Fla. Hurricane
Catastrophe Fund rule
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) A
state board has approved an emer-
gency rule designed to protect the
state from up to $20 billion in losses
if the state gets hit by a devastating
hurricane.
The rule implements legislation
passed by lawmakers and is await-
ing Gov. Charlie Crist's signature.
Crist chairs the State Board of Ad-
ministration that voted Wednes-
day.
Quick action was needed be-
cause hurricane season begins on
June 1. The bill protects the state by
my making changes to the state's
Hurricane Catastrophe Fund,
which serves as a backup for insur-
ance companies.

Appeals court says Miami
defender can't shed cases
MIAMI (AP) A state appeals
court expressed sympathy with
the crushing workload faced by
Miami's public defender but ruled
Wednesday that refusing to accept
felony cases is not the way to fix
the problem.
The Third District Court of Ap-
peal's decision overturned ajudge's
ruling in September that would
have permitted the office that rep-
resents Miami's poor defendants to
stop accepting thousands of lesser
third-degree felony cases, such as
auto theft, forgery and battery. The
appeals judges said there are alter-
natives to dealing with the public
defender's budget dilemma.
"There is simply insufficient
evidence to support such a drastic
remedy," the court's opinion said.
"We understand the difficulties."
Instead of turning to the courts,
the appeals judges recommended
that Public Defender Carlos Mar-
tinez seek out the Florida Legisla-
ture for budget help and also make
administrative changes that could
ease the workload on the office's
180-plus attorneys. Martinez has
already enlisted the help of the
Florida Association of Criminal
Defense Lawyers to provide attor-
neys willing to handle some cases
for free.
Martinez said he would appeal
the decision to the Florida Supreme
Court, arguing that it is unethical
for public defenders to fail in their
duty to represent people because
they are overworked.
"Unfortunately, this ruling is a
setback," he said. "In essence, what
we are doing is rationing justice for
poor people. That can't be right."
Public defenders around the
country are grappling with bud-
get cuts and higher caseloads, but
Miami's office went farther than
most in seeking to refuse cases.
Miami-Dade State Attorney Kath-
erine Femandez Rundle, whose of-
fice appealed the earlier decision,
said now that the litigation is over,
prosecutors, defense lawyers and
judges should discuss solutions.
"My concern was that it could
have created absolute chaos in
the system," Rundle said in an in-
terview. "We can now go about
the business of being creative and
supportive and collaborative as
opposed to being distracted by liti-
gation."
Martinez and his predecessor,

Bennett Brummer, have argued
that heavy caseloads mean poor
defendants don't get adequate
representation, jeopardizing
their constitutional rights. They
said their office has gone through
12.6 percent budget cuts the past
two years, while the caseload has
risen by about 29 percent.
Miami-Dade Circuit Judge
Stanford Blake agreed, ruling in
September that thousands of fel-
ony cases would be handled by a
new regional office set up to rep-
resent people when the public
defender has a conflict. But the
appeals court found otherwise,
with Judge Frank Shepherd not-
ing that the public defender's
claims were better suited for the
political realm.
"This action is nothing more
than a political question mas-
querading as a lawsuit, and
should be dispatched on that ba-
sis," Shepherd said in a concur-
ring opinion.

Flower laborers to share stories, hardships at event


By MICHAEL HERBERT
Alligator Contributing Writer

Some bouquets, like those given on Moth-
er's Day, may lose their luster when buyers
find out how the flowers were picked.
The Civic Media Center, 433 S. Main St.,
will host a panel tonight at 7:30 about the op-
pressed flower laborers of Columbia.
Speakers will include Amanda Camacho,
President of Asopapagayo Flower Union in
Bogota, Colombia and Carolina Delgado,
South Florida Organizer for Fairness in Flow-
ers Campaign.
"We're going to hear directly from the peo-
ple on the ground, working in these planta-
tions," said James Schmidt, a coordinator at the
Center. "[The event] represents a movement to
unite organizations for justice for flower work-
ers in Latin America and the U.S."
In 2004, U.S. consumers bought $385 mil-
lion of Colombian-grown flowers. Colombia


is the second largest flower producer in the
world. Most of the country's flower workers
are women, many of whom are single moth-
ers, who face sexual harassment, unsanitary
working conditions, pesticide exposure, over-
work, lack of maternity leave and unsafe work
conditions.
The panel will focus on these and other is-
sues, according to Delgado.
With most cut flowers bought in the U.S.
being given to women, it is especially impor-
tant for them to know where their flowers are
coming from, Delgado said.
Camacho is one of thousands of flower la-
borers who works about 48 hours a week at
$8 a day.
Near Valentine's Day and Mother's Day,
this workload increases to a work week up-
ward of 80 hours, without pay increase, Del-
gado said.
Camacho has toured the U.S. for two weeks
to raise awareness about the working condi-


tions, Delgado said.
She feels that developing the Fair Trade
Certification, which ensures that workers
worldwide receive proper pay, treatment and
social aid, would help flower workers.
"We're going to hear directly from
the people on the ground, working
in these plantations."
James Schmidt
Civic Media Center coordinator

"There is no Fair Trade presence in
Colombia currently," Delgado said. "De-
veloping a Fair Trade label is difficult."
Veriflora, a program that is in development,
would fill that need, but it is in its infancy.
The main obstacle to Fair Trade in Colom-
bia is the legitimacy of protective organiza-
tions and the social requirements of Fair Trade
Certification, she said.


Delgado made the distinction between la-
bels such as Fair Trade Certified, which are
recognized as ensuring safe working environ-
ments and worker compensation, and labels
that she and many organizations consider to
be purely for marketing, such as the current
Florverde label in use in Colombia by many
flower companies.
In addition to attending the event and sup-
porting the organizations pushing for fair
treatment of farm workers, Schmidt also rec-
ommends people be conscious of the flowers
they purchase.
"You can actually buy Fair Trade flowers
online or from your florist," he said.
The National Farmworker Ministry, Cen-
tral Florida Jobs with Justice and the Farm-
worker Association of Florida will host the
event. All three organizations are working
to support efforts for and spread knowledge
about the fair treatment of farm workers, both
locally and internationally.


Cabinet appointments divide senators, postpone vote


* STUDENT SENATORS
WALKED OUT DURING THE
MEETING.

By SARA WATSON
Alligator Writer

Despite hopes for a united front,
UF student senators proved a rift
still exists between the majority and
minority parties at the first sum-
mer session meeting Tuesday night,


where several senators walked out
to force early adjournment.
The meeting, which was held to
vote on 48 appointees to Student
Government agencies and SG Cabi-
net, began amicably.
"It doesn't matter what color
shirt you wore back in the campaign;
we're trying to get work done," said
Sen. Jonathan Ossip, the new Or-
ange and Blue party leader.
But the debate quickly turned to
the issue of potential cabinet appoin-


tees chosen by the executive branch
and the differing sentiments on how
the selection process was handled.
"The executive appointments, at
least from the
Student senate side of it,
Government unfortunately
was done in
what at best could be called under
the table and at worst could be called
just blatantly wrong," Ossip said.
The senator and several support-
ers argued that resumes and infor-


mation about potential candidates
were e-mailed 15 minutes before
Tuesday's meeting and that they
needed more time to make informed
choices.
Ossip, seconded by Sen. Alden
Gillespy, moved to postpone the
voting until May 19.
The senate majority, however,
said the executive branch's Replace-
ment and Agenda Committee spent
four days finding and reviewing
qualified candidates.


"To put all the work of the ex-
ecutive committee to shame is ludi-
crous," Sen. Audrey Schnell said.
Ossip's motion to postpone the
vote failed, and about seven sena-
tors, including Gillespy and Sen.
Neil Gundavda, walked out of the
room. There weren't enough remain-
ing senators to allow for a vote.
According to an Orange and Blue
Party press release, the nominations
will be heard at Tuesday's meeting
after a one-week hold.

Seats empty in top


journalism class


By RACHAEL PINO
Alligator Writer
Each semester, anxious stu-
dents stalk ISIS for an open seat
in Reporting, a make-or-break
class in UF's College of Journal-
ism and Communications.
But this summer there are
plenty of empty seats.
While some attribute this to
challenges in the journalism in-
dustry, others say the struggling
economy is to blame.
The class is run by Master Lec-
turer Mike Foley, who said about
80 students registered for the 100
seats in the class.
Although the college is offer-
ing the traditional five Reporting
sections, Helga Williams, an of-
fice assistant in the college, said
enrollment is down this summer.
"I'm thinking students just
don't have the money to be here,"
she said.
According to UF's Web site,
the three-credit course costs
$377.73 and an additional $18.67
for lab supplies.
April Shapiro, who advises
freshmen and sophomores in the
college, said she is surprised that
the number of declared journal-
ism majors is strong despite the


struggling newspaper industry.
"I would think they would
be shying away from going into
journalism, but we're still getting
people coming out of high school
who are interested," she said.
Shapiro added that many
people are
learning how
to manage on-
line news con-
tent instead of
print.
"[News] is
never going to
i go away," she
Foley said. "It's just
changing and evolving."
Sandra Storr, a program as-
sistant in the Office of Student
Services, said that Applied Fact
Finding and Newspaper Editing,
courses for third-year journalism
majors, were not being offered
this summer. She said the fact
that the college is offering Prob-
lems and Ethics in Journalism in
Society may explain the change.
Like Shapiro, Storr said she
hadn't seen a decrease in interest
for a journalism degree, adding
that students may have to apply
the skills learned for print jour-
nalism elsewhere.
"Based on what I've seen, I
don't see any panic," Storr said.

'Supreme' Seat

Women dominate field

for high court spot
Beyond resuscitating the economy, one of the most critical
decisions on tap for President Barack Obama lies in finding
a replacement for outgoing Supreme Court Justice David
Souter. Obama's upcoming selection will mark his first nomina-
tion to the nation's highest court a choice that will undoubtedly
carry weight beyond the four to eight years of his presidency.
According to an article on CNN.com, the list of potential nomi-
nees has been narrowed down to approximately six serious con-
tenders. Interestingly enough, out of the individuals with a viable
shot of succeeding Souter, allbut one are female. Ruth Bader Gins-
burg, appointed by former President Bill Clinton in 1993, is cur-
rently the only woman serving on the Supreme Court.
Out of the group of women currently being considered by
Obama, the confirmed names include federal appeals court judges
Sonia Sotomayor and Diane Wood, and Solicitor General Elena
Kagan.
Sotomayor, 54, who would become the first Hispanic justice if
appointed, has bipartisan appeal but recently faced criticism on
"The Late Show with David Letterman," where her intelligence
and demeanor were called into question. Such accusations seem
particularly baseless considering Sotomayor's strong academic
background, which include degrees from Princeton and Yale.
While her candidacy has garnered some negative attention from
late night talk show types, most telling about her chances for a
nomination stems from her support from both of New York's sen-
ators, who penned a letter of support to Obama on her behalf.
The other federal appeals court judge, Wood, 59, currently
works as an instructor at the University of Chicago the school
where she first forged a friendship with Obama. What may be go-
ing against Wood, aside from her age, is the fact she did not attend
an Ivy League school for either her undergraduate or law school
studies. Even though a quick look at the academic backgrounds of
the current Supreme Court justices reveals a heavy trend toward
Ivy-based educations, Wood's decision to attend the University of
Texas for the entirety of her collegiate career should not preclude
her from serious consideration by Obama.
Beyond her current position, Kagan made a name for herself
as a professor and then later while presiding as dean of Harvard
Law School. Fortunately for Kagan, the 49-year-old attorney who
serves as the administration's top attorney before the Supreme
Court, a lack of judicial experience may not deter her chances of
assuming Souter's seat. In addition to her strong academic back-
ground, Kagan exhibited political acumen while working under
the Clinton administration as associate White House counsel.
For Obama, the criteria of youth has been made known as a
highly desired attribute. Given the fact that a younger appoint-
ment could serve as many as 30 or more years on the Supreme
Court, Obama has paid careful attention to the ages of all of the
candidates as he prepares to make his decision. Such an emphasis
on longevity of service could potentially bode well for Kagan, who
has yet to celebrate her 50th birthday.
A quick glance at former President George W. Bush's admin-
istration would reveal the prior two appointments skewing more
toward the young side. Both Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice
Samuel Alito, appointed to the high court in 2005 by Bush, remain
years away from receiving Social Security benefits. For Wood, 59,
an appointment to the Supreme Court may have unfortunately
passed her by.
Regardless of age, the quality of candidates appears quite im-
pressive which will ultimately pay huge dividends for Obama's
impact as a president both now and beyond his time in office.
The diversity of potential appointments, in terms of gender, eth-
nicity and career path, speaks volumes of the Obama Administra-
tion's willingness to be open-minded. What remains important,
though, is delivering a nominee respected by both Republicans
and Democrats alike, so that the confirmation process runs its
course in a relatively timely manner.

Oprah's latest act not finger-lickin' good


Oprah Winfrey rose to power by capturing the
hearts and minds of millions of devoted follow-
ers. According to industry estimates, her weekly
television audience and magazine subscribers combine to
form a bloc of over 50 million committed supporters.
In real terms, there are more people living in Oprahl-
and than in Spain.
Her power over her devotees has brought her enor-
mous wealth and worldwide fame, and for most of her
career Oprah wielded this omnipotence in a benevolent
manner. Last week, though, the KFC coupon fiasco laid
bare an Oprah wholly unlike the one we thought we knew
so well.
Oprah told the world last Friday that she bought every-
one in America a grilled chicken meal at KFC. This seemed
at first like a fun little stunt Oprah always gives stuff
away on her show, and everyone could use a free meal
these days.
In a completely unsurprising chain of events, Oprah's
free chicken meal was a huge success. So much so that
KFC franchises across the country had to turn away the
coupons after only a day of the weeklong promotion. Peo-
ple got angry because Oprah said she already paid for all
this chicken.
KFC managed to win this media game of course they
planned for this to happen. Every news outlet in the coun-
try mentioned not only KFC but also the new grilled chick-
en. The stories all make it seem like this grilled chicken is
better than heroin. Their CEO came out with a smarmy
YouTube "apology" that played like another commercial
for his greasy new chicken meals.
Oprah, though, is in a tough place now. She just got
the PETA "Person of the Year" award for her recent ex-
posure of sustainable food and agriculture, and now she


*whores herself out for a company
that PETA calls "Kentucky Fried
Cruelty." Naturally, PETA is
pussyfooting around this fracas;
their official line is that Oprah was
"deliberately misled" about KFC.
Tommy Maple Oprah never paid for any chick-
letters@alligator.org en she got paid millions to pull
this stunt.
The first sign of trouble came with the massive support
on all of Oprah's media platforms for "The Secret." Oprah
devoted months of exposure to the promotion of a pyra-
mid scheme built of puerile thoughts and fake spiritual-
ity.
Here is how "The Secret" works. Step one, you need to
desire material things. Step two, wish for them. Step three
is being rich and getting on Oprah to promote your stupid
book/movie about magic wishing power. Somewhere, the
Underpants Gnomes are furious they didn't think of this
first.
"The Secret" actually says that bad things only happen
to people who think bad thoughts. Oprah has donated
time and money to Rwandan genocide recovery, but it
turns out that what she should have been doing all along
is just getting the damned Hutus and Tutsis to read "The
Secret."
Something is rotten in the state of Oprahland these last
few years. Queen Oprah has enjoyed a long and prosper-
ous reign atop the American media structure for more
than 20 years. If absolute power corrupts absolutely, what
exactly are we to make of the damning scope of Oprah
power?

ate student. His column appears weekly.

GRU plans to provide Internet to rural, historic areas

By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

Gainesville Regional Utility committee members and em-
ployees discussed Gainesville's accessibility to broadband In-
ternet Wednesday afternoon.
Congress's Stimulus Bill allotted $7.2 billion in grants and
loans, some of which will be used to bring broadband Internet
to rural and underdeveloped areas.
During an April meeting, members of the Committee said
that research should be done to work toward adding Internet
into older neighborhoods in downtown and East Gainesville.
GRU's Internet service, GRUCom, provides access to many
existing student apartment complexes near UF and Santa Fe
College.
"I would want us to look for ways to
make this economically feasible for other
customers as well."
Craig Lowe
GRU committee chair


* HE PLANS TO TRAVEL TO
ITALY WITH HIS WINNINGS.

By JESSICA CHAPMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Diastema did him in.
Biting his lip while he stared at his
options on the screen, Eric Gunther
nervously made a guess as he sat in
the Hot Seat. The seconds quickly
ticked down.
Five. Four. Three. Two. One. Final
answer.
Gunther, a UF advertising senior,
walked away from the game show
"Who Wants To Be a Millionaire,"
which aired Monday night on ABC,
with $25,000.
"It's always been something I've
wanted to do," said Gunther, who is
graduating in fall 2009. "It's kind of
cool. It'll be a great story to tell. It was
so weird to see it on TV."
Gunther is paying his own way
through school, but he said he is not
too concerned with loans and bills
right now.
"They have low interest," Gunther
said. "They're not the biggest worry
right now."
Some of the $25,000 Gunther won
will go toward a trip to Italy he is
planning, he said.
He said he looks forward to start-
ing his life with a little financial free-
dom, but he does not plan on putting
a majority of the money toward pay-
ing off loans.
The show was hosted by celeb-
rity guest host Samantha Harris, the
co-host for ABC's "Dancing with the


Stars."
Harris said the show was a night of
firsts, referring to her first time host-
ing a game show and Gunther's first
time on a game show.
Gunther won the $25,000 after in-
correctly guessing the answer to the
$50,000 question:
A diastema is a type of problem
commonly corrected by which of
these medical professionals?
A: Dermatologist, B: Podiatrist, C:
Orthodontist, D: Cardiologist.

"I'm not disappointed."
Eric Gunther
UF advertising senior


Gunther used the "Ask the Expert"
lifeline, a new feature on the show that
allows contestants to connect with a
former contestant via Skype video, to
answer the question. The "experts"
are selected by "Millionaire" spon-
sors.
Howard Johnson, a former "Mil-
lionaire" contestant who won $250,
000 when he appeared on the show in
2005, was the expert for this episode.
Johnson told Gunther to "definite-
ly go with A (Dermatologist)," telling
him he was 80 to 90 percent sure that
he was correct.
Despite the fact that Gunther
thought the answer was cardiologist,
he went with Johnson's suggestion.
Both Gunther and Johnson were
wrong. The answer was orthodontist.
"I'm not disappointed," Gunther
said. "That's part of the game show.
You don't know if he will know the
answer or not."


It's harder to add Internet into older, already established
developments many times because of infrastructure or wiring,
said committee member Lauren Poe.
"I would want us to look for ways to make this economi-
cally feasible for other customers as well," said Craig Lowe, the
committee's chair. "We're essentially providing development
potential to other areas. I'm looking to perhaps increase our fo-
cus to areas and businesses we're not reaching."
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan, who also serves as a member of
the committee, agreed with Lowe, adding she would like to of-
fer incentives that the city could provide for land developers to
use GRUCom as their Internet provider.


Accepted UFgrads maintained 3.9 GPA


HARVARD, from page 1


as early as November, while most other law
schools don't admit or reject students until
spring, according to www.top-law-schools.
com. But the early acceptance works as a way
to hook students on the idea of Harvard and
reel them in, according to Gross.
"I found out so early that by the time I got
accepted to other really great schools, like Co-
lumbia, I was already pretty set on Harvard,"
Gross said.
But the accepted earned themselves spots
at HLS by submitting focused personal state-
ments, maintaining at least a 3.9 grade point
average, staying involved on campus, receiv-
ing valued teacher recommendations and
scoring a 172-177-out of 180-on the Law
School Admissions Test, which fall within the
top one percentile in the country.
D'Oyley, who served as a Student Govern-
ment senator for district D at UF, was especial-
ly excited when HLS became a possibility.
"Harvard has always been my dream
school, and I was rejected from there for un-
dergrad," she said. "I still have to dig up that
rejection letter."
Michael Heaney, UF assistant professor of
political science, who has also taught at other
well-respected schools like Yale, Northwestern
and Georgetown, helped educate many of the
accepted students on current controversies in
public policy. Rosen, Gross and D'Oyley said
his teachings inspired them for the future.
"I always had a strong sense that these stu-
dents were going somewhere," Heaney said.
But these days, somewhere doesn't come
cheap, as HLS tuition can add up to $120,000
over three years compared to in-state UF Levin
College of Law of only about $30,000.
Akerman said her plan was always to go to
UF for undergraduate school and then go to a


private law school. Gross had the same idea.
In the current economic climate, the accept-
ed students must take out loans a stark con-
trast to being more or less paid to go to UF.
"It's such a long term investment that will
allow me to do great things," Rosen said.
Harvard claims that the nearly six-figure
salary each HLS graduate will earn in their
first year out of law school should allow stu-
dents to pay back loans in no time, according
to the HLS Web site. Yet, even with the high
tuition, freezing weather, the sleepless nights
and the Socratic method lurking in the stu-
dents' minds, the idea that other Gators will be
by their side has somewhat calmed the storm,
Akerman said.
National Their varying involvement
News offers HLS a well-rounded
part of the Gator Nation, too.
Rosen spent her time as
an undergraduate researching with the Gra-
ham Center for Public Service, D'Oyley found
her safe haven in SG, Gross spent his days
as a member of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity,
D'Angelo invested her time in community ser-
vice and Akerman was an involved member
of Phi Mu Sorority.
"Some people joke that I'm the Elle Woods,"
Akerman said. "But I'm not blond, which is a
very good thing."
UF pre-law adviser Sara Mock said be-
tween one and nine UF students are accepted
to HLS each year.
Sarah Woodberry, a 2009 UF graduate and
first year HLS student, said she finds time for
social activities, and aside from more reading
assignments, she doesn't find the workload
frightening or overwhelming.
But the seven still have their doubts about
law school's ease they said.
"I think we can all do it," Rosen said. "But
I might be singing a very different song in Au-
gust."


Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan discusses the possibility of GRU expanding Internet access during a meeting
on GRU services at the company's Fourth Avenue headquarters Wednesday afternoon.

[health]


In honor of National Fitness Month (and
maybe because all the best shows are reach-
ing their season finales) here are some ways
to make the rest of the month a little lighter.

1) Walk. Face it. Gainesville isn't that big.
The farthest most of us ever get is 2 miles,
and the time it takes to wait for the bus
could have you where you need to be by foot.

2) Swim. While lying out, stop staring at the
water, just jump in. Twenty minutes of water
thrashing burns an average of 180 calories
and is way better than trying to tune out the
awful pool music.

3) Run. Even if just for 20 feet, when a slight
pang of energy hits just take off. Every sec-
ond of intense activity counts.

4) Love. Sex burns calories, tones muscles
and releases feel-good chemicals. You win
every way.

5) Play. Embrace your inner child. Crash the
neighborhoods' kids' hopscotch round, toss
a ball, chase the ice cream truck- you might
not have the vigor kids do, but you're still
young, if it works for them it could work for
you.

Eloquence


lost in time

DAVID LOW AVENUE WRITER
In an America where all you seem
to hear about is our economy and
our armed and civil conflicts, it is
sometimes helpful to revisit griev-
ous times of the past to read the
thoughts of those who have en-
dured if only simply to endure. You
do this to take in some perspective
of human experience, some sense
of nationality and it is good. But
shouldn't we be able to find strength
in our own time, in our own words?
I'm not saying there are no great
writers today, it just seems like the
general populations of the past
had the ability to write well, which
is something to be desired today if
you've ever read a blog.
Take the Civil War. Thousands
of men and women recorded their
insights and emotions, with an elo-
quence and, if not flowery, stately
candor in their correspondence.
Of course, the Union and the
Confederacy's strife were of a mag-
nitude far greater than ours by prox-
imity and scale, thus
Off the involving more people
Avenue in events out of the or-
dinary than our strug-
gles do today. This perhaps gives us
a leisurely disposition toward our
expression in words.
The decline in writing must have
come when everyone learned to
type. Words now are common and
often, holding no majesty. Words
upon paper are blocks pressed on by
a machine sitting next to a desk, not
a flowing imprint of individuality.
Writing is a tradition we've al-
lowed ourselves to relinquish. An
unfortunate side effect is perpetu-
ally dumbing down our language.
In an introductory journalism
courses, I was told to "write as if
you were writing for a third-grad-
er." I understand the importance of
clarity in journalism, but couldn't
we at least pander to a grade where
the kids have studied the language
more complex than "the quick fox
jumped over the lazy dog"?
Twitter and Facebook have not
helped. These sites and others have
given everyone the ability to share
worthless bits of information that
if kept to oneself, would never be
considered worthy of repetition.
It allows one to let everything out
without a thought, which, perhaps,
never comes. If it did, there would
probably be less posts about what
you had for lunch or how your nap
was. In 140 characters or less.
Abbreviations and acronyms
have never been so popular. Sure
there were a lot of them for all the
work programs during the FDR
presidency, but now we have acro-
nyms for commonly used phrases or
actions. LOL. ROFL. BRB. OMG.
Have we become too connected
for expressive speech to be use-
ful? Too informed for sentiment?
Too "on-the-go" to write complete
sentences? Could it be that written
and spoken word is slowly devolv-
ing until we reach the most effi-
cient means of communication with
chemical signals amplified from
brain to brain, our final utterances
low grunts?
Um, that would be pretty cool ac-
tually Brain telepathy FTW.

Papier-mache replica of Meyer's Tasering sells for $5K


Artist says public to blame

KATIE EMMETS + AVENUE WRITER


Action-figure-sized Andrew
Meyer thrashed on top of a 2-by-

held a Taser to him.
Arizona artist Tom Haddock,
48, created the model to show the
public his concern about freedom

Haddock said no matter what
Meyer did, no one should be
dragged away from a microphone
and Tased for exercising freedom
of speech.
"It's pretty egregious to Tase
someone for asking a question
at a place where a politician
is speaking," he said. "It's not


something that you would expect
to happen in America, at least not
in this time."
Haddock said he feels uneasy
about living in a country that
condones such behavior.
He doesn't have a background
in politics, but much of Had-
dock's art reflects political mat-
ters that concern him.

One of Haddock's models
portrayed the rape and murder
of a 14-year-old Iraqi girl by a
U.S. soldier, and another showed
the dead body of a prisoner who
was killed after questioning in

Although he never contacted
Meyer, Haddock said he views
Meyer as a victim and a sym-
bol for what is happening to the
United States.
Although "don't Tase me,


bro" was popularly displayed on
T-shirts and bumper stickers, the
issue is serious, Haddock said.
"When it becomes this catch-
phrase that people say over and
over again, people kind of forget
about how terrible it really is," he
said.

UF SOFTBALL

Veteran Gators


start title run at


NCAA Regional
By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

Last season, the UF softball team enjoyed unprecedented
success, losing only two regular-season games and reach-
ing the Women's College World Series for the first time in
program history.
At 55-3, the No. 1 Gators find themselves in almost the
same position this year, but this time around, UF will enter
the NCAA Tournament with a slightly different mindset.
This team has already made a run deep into the postsea-
son, as it reached the semifinals of the WCWS last year, and
the Gators started this season with a national champion-
ship as their ultimate goal.
"Last year, it was a different feel. This team's on a mis-
sion," UF coach Tim Walton said. "We want to get better
- I'm not talking about wins and losses, just about getting
better."
With the final objective in mind, UF will host NCAA
Regional play in Gainesville starting Friday. Florida A&M
(30-30), Lehigh (36-16-1) and Texas A&M (31-19), which
ended UF's postseason run last year, round out the double-
elimination bracket.
The Gators will first face the Rattlers at 6 p.m. on Fri-
day, with the Aggies and Mountain Hawks kicking off the
weekend at 3:30 p.m.
The winners of Friday's games will meet at 1 p.m. on
Saturday, followed by the losing teams at 3:30 p.m. The
losing team from the 1 p.m. game and the winning team
from the 3:30 game will meet at 6 p.m. The championship :
game will take place at 1 p.m. on Sunday, and if necessary,
a second game will be played at 3:30 p.m.
By putting up 19 runs during the final two games of
the Southeastern Conference Tournament, the Gators have
shown that their bats are as hot as they have been all sea- Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff

JU errors close non-conference slate with win I


Mooney's second HR of season breaks tie


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer

At this point of the season, great
teams take advantage of every mis-
take their opponents make, and UF
did just that on Tuesday.
The Gators' first 5 runs of the
game were unearned, and No. 13
UF (36-17) cruised to a 7-4 home
victory against Jacksonville (33-18)


in its final non-conference game of
the season.
"Down the stretch that's pretty
much what it boils down to," UF
coach Kevin O'Sullivan said. "Any
time you can force teams into er-
rors, you have to take advantage of
that."
The Dolphins scored 2 runs in
the second inning to take an early
2-0 lead, but it didn't last long.


After back-
to-back singles
by Josh Adams
and Matt den
Dekker to start
the bottom of
the second, the
O'Sullivan first costly er-
ror of the game
was made by Jacksonville's starting
pitcher Garrett Dunlap.


Dunlap fielded a sacrifice bunt
attempt but threw the ball away,
and Adams came into score UF's
first run.
"We fell behind 2-0, and we
wanted to make sure we got on the
board," O'Sullivan said. "Dunlap's
decision was right, but he just kind
of threw the ball away down the
third-base line."
Later in the inning, Teddy
Foster drove in den Dekker on a

SEC meet

* THE GATORS WILL HOST
FOR THE SEVENTH TIME.

By JESSICA ETTER
Alligator Writer

For the first time since 1998, UF
will host the Southeastern Con-
ference Outdoor Championships
beginning today at 2:30 p.m. and
running until Sunday evening at
Percy Beard Track inside James G.
Pressly Stadium.
The Gators have hosted the SEC
Outdoor Champi-
onships six previ-
ous times: 1960,
1970, 1974, 1981,
Track 1989 and 1998.
The Seminole
Twilight Invitational in Tallahas-
see this past weekend proved to be
exactly what the Gators needed to
continue making progress toward
NCAA glory.
The Gators' objective going into
Tallahassee was to gain momen-
tum before the SEC meet.
They responded with four event
victories and 11 NCAA regional-
qualifying marks.
Freshmen Ben Davies and Mi-
chael Anderson won the javelin
and steeplechase, respectively.
Natalie Moser took home her
second pole vault title of the sea-
son, and junior Mariam Kevkhish-
vili won the women's shot put.
UF coach Mike Holloway
stressed the importance of team
success, rather than individual
performance.
"We are doing what we have
always done," Holloway said. "We
aren't focused on one athlete, we
are focused on Florida."
The men's outdoor team has
been ranked in the nation's top
10 throughout the entire season
and jumped to the No. 1 spot in
the U.S. Track & Field and Cross
Country Coaches Association poll
on April 29.
"We don't put pressure on our
athletes," Holloway said.

Panteliodis strikes out career-high six, picks up fifth victory


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
UF shortstop Mike Mooney is greeted by teammates after his 3-run homer during the Gators' 7-2 win
against Jacksonville on Tuesday at McKethan Stadium. It was the junior's second HR of the season.


BASEBALL, from page 20

fielder's choice to tie the game at 2.
However, the game was decided by
an unlikely source of power.
After another error by Jacksonville
in the fourth inning, shortstop Mike
Mooney drilled a 3-run home run
over the left-field fence, only his sec-
ond homer of the season. The home
run was not only the difference in the
game but also a personal milestone.
"It's my first-ever season with
more than one home run, so that's a
change," Mooney said. "Even in high
school, it was only one (home run)."
Hidden behind the advantageous
hitting and Mooney's rare power
was the good outing from freshman
left-hander Alex Panteliodis (5-5, 4.11
ERA).
He was on a pitch count of 50, but
he was able to notch his fifth win of the
season anyway after giving up only 2
runs and striking out a career-high six
batters in four innings of work. Both
runs came in the second inning, but
Panteliodis was able to settle down
after that.
"It felt good, especially after I gave
up that home run," Panteliodis said.


"I just went out there and started hit-
ting my spots and just got into a little
groove."
O'Sullivan believed it was the best
his freshman has thrown the ball this
season.
"His fastball was down and it had
life," O'Sullivan said.
After two straight wins, the Gators
will need solid pitching as they head
into their final series of the season in
position to accomplish all the goals
they set for themselves before the sea-
son.
A pair of lefties will face off in
tonight's opener against Kentucky
(27-24, 11-16 SEC) at McKethan Sta-
dium, as senior Stephen Locke (3-1,
5.08 ERA) will face Wildcats junior
James Paxton. The Gators are 3-1 in
SEC home series this year and have
gone 10-3 at home, including sweeps
of Tennessee, Alabama and South
Carolina.
UF, 17-10 in the SEC, currently
holds a two-game lead over Georgia
in the race for the Southeastern Con-
ference East Division crown entering
the three-game set with Kentucky.
"Everything is in front of us,"
O'Sullivan said. "We control our own
destiny."


Bruder named national player of the week


SOFT, from page 20


The only area of concern en-
tering the postseason will be the
team's performance in the field,
as UF committed four errors
during its last two games.
"We have to work on a little
bit of defense that's mainly
what we need to focus on but
everything's going in the right
direction," right fielder Kelsey
Bruder said.
With the Gators currently on
a 21-game winning streak, com-
placency would be an issue for
many teams.
But even at the Southeastern
Conference Tournament, where


a loss would have had virtually
no effect on its postseason des-
tiny, UF remained focused on
winning every game.
"It means that we finished out
strong, that we beat every team
that we stepped on the field to
face," left fielder Francesca Enea
said of the importance of win-
ning the tournament title.
"It's more about pride and
showing other teams who we
are."

BRUDER NAMED NATIONAL
PLAYER OF THE WEEK: The
Amateur Softball Association

Player of the Week on Tuesday
for her performance in the SEC

lied four hits,
4 runs, two doubles, a home run
and five RBIs at the tournament,
putting up a 1.286 slugging per-
centage and .700 on-base per-
centage in the three-game tour-
nament.


No. 1 men set sights on NCAA title


TRACK, from page 20

"All we ask is that they come
out and perform at a high lev-
el."
During the Penn Relays in
late April, the team of hurdlers
consisting of Kallinka Pitt, Den-
nis Martin, William Wynne and
Jarius Cooper set a school record
of 54.30 seconds while defending
UF's title in the Shuttle Hurdles
Championships of America.
"We feel good about our team
as a whole, and we are just going


to go out and perform to the best
of our ability," Holloway said.
After the SEC Champion-
ships, the Gators will participate
in the NCAA Regionals on May
29-30 in Greensboro, N.C., and
the NCAA Outdoor Champion-
ships from June 10-13 in Fayette-
ville, Ark.
"From the beginning of the
season, our major goals were
to be conference and national
champions," Holloway said.
"At the end of the season, we
have a goal of being the best in
the country."

UF MEN'S GOLF

Gators seek NCAA Championships berth in Austin


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer
The veteran-filled UF men's golf
team is ignoring the issue com-
pletely.
The possibility that the Austin
Regional might end up being its
last tournament together will not
be brought up.
"This will not be our last toura-
ment. We have nationals," senior
Billy Horschel said.
Before the No. 8 Gators can
advance to the NCAA Champion-


ships, they will have to finish in the
top five of their regional beginning
Thursday in Austin, Texas.
UF will enter the event as the
No. 2 seed and will try to advance
to nationals for the ninth consecu-
tive year. However, advancing is
not the sole goal for UF. The Gators
have set their sights on a regional
victory.
"We don't want to just make it to
nationals, we want to win regionals
and go into nationals with a lot of
momentum," Horschel said.
Other than its annual home


event, the Gator Invitational, UF
has not won a tournament since
October 2006. This puts pressure
on Horschel
and his team-
mates to notch a
first-place finish
before the end
of their college
careers.
"The pres-
Horschel sure we feel is
the pressure to


win," he said.
It has been


25 days since UF


played its last tournament, but the
team has used that pressure to stay
motivated during the long layoff
before the regional.
While the UF women's golf team
was playing in the NCAA East Re-
gional on Gainesville's Mark Bo-
stick Golf Course last weekend, the
men's team took a three-day trip to
Tampa to practice a grueling three
times a day.
"I wouldn't consider the long
layoff a break," coach Buddy Alex-
ander said.
The Gators will send out


Horschel, Tim McKenney, Tyson
Alexander, Toby Ragland and Will
Strickler to contend for a spot in the
NCAA Championships.
"It's a veteran group of three
seniors and two juniors, and they
still have big stuff left to play for,"
Buddy Alexander said.
But those five will not bring up
the inevitable end to a long and suc-
cessful journey together at least
not yet.
"That will not be brought up un-
til that night before the last round
of nationals," Horschel said.
