UF ADMINISTRATION


Machen: UF will cut 152 positions, $42M


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

UF will cut its budget by about
$42 million and eliminate about
150 positions, UF President Bernie
Machen told the Faculty Senate on
Friday.


Seventy-two of those positions
will be faculty, 80 will be staff, Ma-
chen said.
The cut will also include some
layoffs, but he declined to say ex-
actly how many.
After the meeting, he said there
would be fewer than a dozen faculty
layoffs and a "fair number of staff


layoffs."
The $49-million figure, cited as
the size of UF's budget cut last week
by a UF spokeswoman, was based
on incorrect information.
Machen said about $30.6 million
of the $42 million will be saved by
cutting vacant positions, reducing
expenses and other eliminations.


Of that, about $12 million to $13
million will come from eliminating
vacant positions, and more than $6
million will be saved by switching
programs from state funding to non-
state funding, he said.
About $8 million will be saved by
universitywide administrative cuts,
like capping sick leave payouts and


creating an early retirement pro-
gram.
The remainder, about $3.6 mil-
lion, will come from undetermined
sources, he said.
More specifics about the cut will
be released later this week, he said.

Collision with

A Florida Highway Patrol State Trooper is
in stable condition after a wreck on Interstate
75 northbound left his patrol car jammed un-
der a tractor-trailer on Monday.
Trooper Richard Ornowski, 54, was taken
to Shands at UF after the vehicles collided less
than a mile south of the Newberry Road exit.
At about 11:20 a.m., Ornowski was respond-
ing to a call for backup from another state
trooper who was working an existing crash at
the Newberry Road overpass.
Ornowski was driving north in the left lane
when, for an unknown reason, his car swerved
to the left, according to FHP spokesman Pat-
rick Riordan.
Ornowski's car then quickly veered to the
right striking the metal guardrail in the medi-
an with the back left side of his car, he said.
Riordan said that when swerving to the
right, Ornowski's patrol car partially entered
the center lane where it was struck by the Andrew Stanfill /Alligator Staff

Faculty Senate delays layoff regulation vote until fall


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

A proposed change to UF's regulations that
would have given the university more control
over who it lays off has been tabled until the
fall after a unanimous Faculty Senate vote on


Friday.
The senate voted to ask UF to postpone the
proposal until next semester, when more fac-
ulty will be on campus to consider the issue.
Though the vote wasn't binding, UF obliged.
The new regulation would have changed
the definition of a layoff unit, which came
under contention recently when two laid-off
professors were reinstated after successfully


challenging UF's interpretation of the unit.
Currently, a unit targeted for layoffs can be
no smaller than a department.
This was deter-
U F mined by an arbitra-
Administration tor who ruled against
the university in
March in the case of assistant professor An-
drea Pham. The arbitrator ruled UF improper-


ly laid off Pham because it was attempting to
eliminate the Vietnamese program, in which
Pham was the only professor.
Because the program is smaller than a de-
partment, it was found not to be an acceptable
layoff unit.

USF grad missing in Costa Rica
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) The University of South Florida says a
21-year-old recent graduate has gone missing in Costa Rica.
According to a USF news release, authorities in Costa Rica have
been searching for Aly Lakdawala since Saturday. Lakdawala went
missing while he was swimming in Pacific Ocean.
Lakdawala earned his degree this spring. He double majored in
international studies and philosophy. Lakdawala is participating in a
community service trip in rural Costa Rica with other USF students.
USF Dean of International Affairs Maria Crummett was flying to
Costa Rica to help in the search. Other university staff members are
already on the trip.

NATIONAL
Sheriff: La. 8th-grader
planned school shooting
LAROSE, La. (AP) A Louisi-
ana middle school student stormed
into a classroom and fired a gun-
shot over a teacher's head Monday
before shooting himself in a bath-
room, authorities said. Investiga-
tors found a suicide note and plans
for a rampage in the teen's journal.
The 15-year-old student, whose
name was not released, fired once
around 9 a.m. inside a classroom
at Larose-Cut Off Middle School,
then shot himself in the head, said
Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig We-
bre. He was in critical but stable
condition. The teacher had never
taught the teen.
Webre said investigators found
a note describing the boy's plans to
"gear up" before his spree, along
with a drawing of how he'd dress.
The boy also scribbled "I am king"
and "y'all will die!" on a sheet of
paper investigators found.
Although he apparently was
intent on killing people, he was
armed with only four bullets for the
.25-caliber, semiautomatic pistol he
had taken from his father's home
during the weekend. The boy's
mother noticed he seemed nervous
before school, but he said he was
just worried about seeing his stan-
dardized test results, which were
released Monday, Webre said.
About 500 sixth-, seventh- and
eighth-graders attend the school in
a rural community of about 7,000
people, some 45 miles southwest of
New Orleans. Webre said the boy
had no disciplinary problems at
school and hadn't been in trouble
with the law. The teen had no rea-
son to be in the classroom, he said.
He was a year or two older
than most of his classmates, who
described him as a quiet boy who
never talked about guns or vio-
lence.
Webre said investigators found
inside the boy's bookbag a com-
pletely filled journal and two loose
sheets of paper that appeared to
be a plan for the shooting and a
suicide note. The school has both
standing and handheld metal de-
tectors, but they aren't used all the
time and weren't in use Monday.
Webre said the boy arrived
at the school in uniform white
shirt, khaki pants but changed
into camouflage pants shown in
his drawing. In an expletive-laced
note, he wrote, "First, I will tell my
art class teacher that I had to go to
the bathroom. Then I would go to
the last stall and 'gear up."'
Eighth-grader Dustin Sevin said
the boy has been his friend for sev-
eral years and that he never talked
about guns or violence. At the end
of second period, his friend said
he needed to see the nurse and left
with his backpack.
The teen apparently headed to
another classroom, walked to the
front of the room and pointed the
pistol at the whiteboard, said sher-
iff's spokeswoman Sgt. Lesley Hill-
Peters. He tried to fire at the board,
but it wouldn't go off. He then
stepped forward, pointed the gun
at the teacher, raised it and fired a
single shot over her head.
Coley Gaspard, 14, said he was
in his seventh-grade English and
reading class when the boy came

in. The teen yelled for everyone
to get down, cursing at the class.
Nobody moved. Gaspard
knew the boy, whom he de-
scribed as quiet and nice, and
thought it was a dramatic en-
actment for some sort of lesson.
Then, he said, the boy walked
over and pointed the gun at
the teacher, ordering her to say,
"Hail Marilyn Manson," refer-
ring to the shock-rock icon, Gas-
pard said.
She said nothing. He fired
into the wall and told another
boy to get up. The seventh-grad-
er stayed in his seat, and the teen
left.
Hill-Peters, the spokeswom-
an, said she couldn't confirm
Gaspard's account.
"After a situation like this
you're going to have a lot of kids,
a lot of parents, a lot of people
saying a lot of stuff," she said.
The school was scheduled to
reopen Tuesday with enhanced
security and several counselors
on hand.

GPD searching for witnesses after Friday shooting


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Staff Writer
kemmets@alligator.org

The Gainesville Police Depart-
ment is looking for witnesses to
a fatal shooting in which an Ala-
chua County Sheriff's deputy shot
and killed an 18-year-old man af-
ter a struggle.
Nicholous Vertex Weeks, 18,
was shot several times on Friday
by Lt. Mike Hanson after physical
force and the use of a Taser gun
did not stop Weeks from attack-
ing the deputy, said Gainesville
Police Department spokesman
Keith Kameg.
"There were at least 25 wit-
nesses at the scene," Kameg said.
"But we are continuing to look for
other witnesses who know any-
thing."
It is still unclear how Weeks
got to the intersection and why he
was enraged, Kameg said.
The State Attorney's Office and
ASO will assist GPD in the inves-
tigation of the incident. Because
the incident happened inside the
city limits, GPD will lead the in-
vestigation, according to Kameg.
Although GPD received the
results of Weeks' preliminary
autopsy, the final autopsy results
and a toxicology report, which


could reveal drug use, are still be-
ing performed, Kameg said.
The incident occurred around
12:50 p.m. on Friday. GPD re-
ceived calls regarding a man and
woman fighting in a car at the
intersection of Northwest 34th
Street and 39th Avenue.

"Officers will take whatever
actions are necessary,
including deadly force,
because we cannot let our
guns be taken."
Keith Kameg
GPD spokesman


According to a witness account
on the SKY97.3 Web site, Weeks
stopped a random car and tried to
pull-out the driver.
Before GPD officers arrived
at the scene, Hanson, who was
on duty, pulled-up and tried
to stop the fight, Kameg said.
Hanson shot Weeks with a Taser
gun when Weeks attacked him.
After being Tasered, Weeks at-
tempted to grab the deputy's gun.
Hanson then shot Weeks several
times, killing him on the scene,
Kameg said.
Kameg said the only reason
someone would go after an offi-

Speaker emphasizes danger of pathogens, swine flu


By SARA WATSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Despite recent cases of swine flu
at schools across the United States,
including one case at UF, there were
only about 10 students at a lecture
about the virus Monday night.
About 75 people attended Dr. J.
Glenn Morris lecture, "Emerging
Pathogens and Pandemics: Swine
Flu and Other Things That Go
Bump in the Night." The event was
held in Emerson Alumni Hall.
Morris, director of the UF Emerg-
ing Pathogens Institute, spoke Mon-
day night about influenza, cholera,
malaria and other epidemics as part
of the UF Alumni Association Lec-
ture Series.
The lecture quickly turned to the


serious and often frightening topic
of emerging pathogens, with an em-
phasis on the H1N1 influenza virus,
initially known as swine flu.
While other pathogens are
alarming to humans, the influenza
virus is particularly destructive be-
cause of its ability to mutate. The vi-
rus's unusual gene structure makes
mutation both easy and inevitable,
Morris said.
"It's like pick-up sticks," he said
of the genes within the flu virus.
"You can toss them up in the air and
pick them up and put them back to-
gether in new combinations."
The H1N1 virus gets its name
from hemagglutinin and neuramin-
idase, two proteins that combine to
create a flu strain. It was dubbed
swine flu because six of the virus's


"If we want to understand
diseases, we need to have
a global presence."
Dr. J. Glenn Morris
UF director emerging pathogens


eight genes are believed to be from
pigs, he said.
Although H1N1 is similar to
regular seasonal flu, which has a
mortality rate of about 1 per 400 to
500 people, Morris said it is impor-
tant to remember that the virus is
potentially fatal and is continuing
to spread.
"It's dropped out of the news,
but we are indeed in the midst of
an epidemic of influenza caused by


this flu," he said.
As an effort to combat H1N1
and other influenzas, Morris said
he hopes to vaccinate 70 percent
of school children in the Alachua
County school system this year.
Because data shows that children
are more likely to spread flu, Mor-
ris predicts immunizing children
in Alachua County could prevent
27,000 illnesses and 31 deaths.
Diane Pecora, an RN specialist
at the Student Health Care Center,
said that flu immunization is an im-
portant step that students don't take
advantage of, even when it's free.
Students who don't like shots
can request a mist treatment, which
is painless and more effective in
preventing various flu strains, she
said.


Each year, the Center for Disease
Control pick three flu strains to in-
clude in the flu vaccination.
The current flu vaccination does
not offer protection against H1N1,
but Morris is hopeful that the CDC
will decide to include H1N1 in
this year's mix. The decision will
be made in the next two weeks, he
said.
Even though H1N1 has proven
to be mild so far, Morris said it is
important to keep a watchful eye
on developing pathogens across the
world.
"Diseases don't recognize na-
tional boundaries. They don't get
passports to come visit us," he said.
"If we want to understand diseas-
es, we need to have a global pres-
ence."

"I couldn't hear my professors; I couldn't
hear conversations right in front of me," he
said. "I just couldn't compete."
Bailey said he thinks the screenings are
important and that people don't realize how
much they need their hearing until they lose


it.
According to a UF release, hearing loss
affects more than 36 million Americans.
Much hearing loss is permanent, but
hearing aids, rehabilitation and assistive
listening devices can be used by patients if
audiologists deem them beneficial.
"Hearing loss takes shape in many
forms," Baker said, adding that it can be
caused by anything from wax buildup to
permanent nerve damage.
Medical issues such as wax buildup can
be treated by removal, he said.
Permanent damage, however, is treated
through aural rehabilitation and amplifica-
tion through hearing aids.

Jamaican restaurant reopens doors after make-over


onemuei arrlnaei / alllg;
The remodeled Reggae Shack Cafe opens today. The cafe features a larger dining area and new menu items.


By ROBERTA 0. ROBERTS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Reggae Shack Caf6 assured
customers that "every little
thing is going to be all right"
with Jamaican restaurant's re-
opening today at 11 a.m.
The restaurant, 619 W.
University Ave., had been
closed since Feb. 8 for renova-
tions.
"We wanted to upgrade
our look," said Omar Oseli-
mo, owner of Reggae Shack.
"We wanted to enhance the
Reggae Shack experience."
Renovations included ex-
panded seating and an up-
grade to the kitchen and air
conditioning.
"We have three times the
amount of seats from before
and a lot more space. We did
a lot of little things to make it
more comfortable," Oselimo
said.
The restaurant also ex-
panded the menu in response
to customer requests, adding
sandwiches such as jerk burg-
ers and "currified" chicken
sandwiches.


Oselimo recommended
oxtail, the Shack's signature
dish, for first time customers.
"And if you're vegetarian,
then try the vegan steak or
curry tempeh," he said.
The restaurant was origi-
nally scheduled to open Mon-
day, but the date was pushed
back to today due to "last
minute details."
Oselimo said that they
have received about 50 calls
a day since they installed the
phone line two
Local weeks ago, so
News he expects it to
be a "little cra-
zy" when they
reopen.
"I am excited and look for-
ward to providing delicious
food and great service for a
very long time in Gainesville,
the best city in America to live
in," he said.
In terms of great service,
Chris Gilmore, a UF sopho-
more agrees.
"People there are really
nice, and they always greet
you with a smile," he said."It
makes the food taste better."

Watermelon flowed freely at
the 64th annual Newberry Water-

snacked on the juicy fruit and
celebrated the town's signature
tradition Saturday.
The festival ran Friday and
Saturday at Canterbury Equestri-

val rides and traditional games,
such as a seed spitting contest,
watermelon rolling, hog calling
and a baking contest.
It is the longest running wa-

Editorial

Bullet's Burden

Deputy should be

commended for heroism
Ask any man or woman who makes a career out of serv-
ing the community in the field of law enforcement: it's
a tough job. Police officers embody a unique group of
people who tirelessly give of themselves for the greater good
of the public, all the while constantly risking his or her life.
The most trying challenge of the position, however, lies in the
responsibility of brandishing a handgun a burden where
a strong sense of self-restraint easily trumps a case of trigger-
happy hands.
For Lt. Mike Hanson, a 13-year veteran of the Alachua Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office, responding to a traffic incident on Friday
quickly turned into a fight for his life. According to an article
in The Gainesville Sun, Nicholous Vertex Weeks, an 18-year-
old Gainesville resident, had been weaving in and out of traffic
on foot as he tried to knock out car windows and pull a wom-
an from her car. Less than a block south of the intersection of
Northwest 39th Avenue and 34th Street, Hanson encountered
Weeks, where the two men began fighting.
Relying on his Taser gun to subdue Weeks, Hanson's weap-
on failed to deter the assailant presumably due to his 6-foot-
4-inch, 225-pound frame. What transpired, by all accounts, was
a brawl in which Hanson suffered injuries to his face and head.
With his glasses smashed and radio left inoperable, Hanson
shot his gun several times at Weeks, leaving the man dead after
he made repeated attempts to gain control of the lieutenant's
weapon.
At initial glance, the officer responded to the scene in a logi-
cal and reasonable fashion given the circumstances. Not only
was Hanson's life in immediate danger, but one could only
assume what may have happened if Weeks managed to gain
possession of the lieutenant's gun. Given the innumerable by-
standers within proximity to the altercation, Hanson was left
with no choice but to remedy the situation by any means nec-
essary a decision that came after all other plausible options
were exhausted.
Yet, according to Jennifer Weeks, the grandmother of the de-
ceased, Hanson fired seven bullets at her grandson. This infor-
mation, if true, raises the issue of how many shots are enough to
adequately control an assailant without risking the safety of the
officer and bystanders at the scene. Can three bullets be deemed
an appropriate course of action, while seven indicates excessive
force on the end of the officer?
The most telling figure is the fact that the average police
officer will never fire a single shot in the line of duty over the
course of his or her tenure. To say Hanson acted inappropriate-
ly or responded in an unsuitable manner would be to contend
that such a situation reflects a common occurrence rather than
a once-in-a-career event. While Hanson and all police officers
receive training to respond to hellacious incidents such as the
one that transpired Friday, the emphasis should not be placed
on how many times Hanson fired his weapon at Weeks. Simply
put, police officers, like all people, are fallible individuals who
run through a gamut of emotions when faced with the pros-
pects of shooting another person.
This is not to argue that Hanson was out of line for the num-
ber of shots he fired to end any chance of Weeks causing him or
anyone else further harm.
Rather, what matters is the fact that Hanson was left with
no other choice but to rely on his handgun as a last resort to
subdue Weeks especially considering his Taser gun's lack of
effectiveness. Given the severity of the circumstances and the
uncontrollable demeanor exhibited by Weeks, Hanson's actions
speak of a law enforcement official exhibiting courageousness
and heroism to the umpteenth degree.
For showing immense restraint before turning to his hand-
gun, we applaud Lt. Mike Hanson as he endured a shift more
akin to South Central Los Angeles than North Central Florida.

Don't save some of that for the sequel


Iwas a bit bored yesterday when I noticed that the Sci-Fi
Channel was running the first two "Saw" films, back to
back. Now, it's been some time since I've seen the "Saw"
films, and so I watched them both. The first one was, as I
remembered, a wonderful little horror movie with an in-
triguing perspective on things. The second one was, while
moderately entertaining, nowhere near the quality of the
first film. As I sat and pondered the sad state of "Saw," it
occurred to me that there are still three more films after the
second, with a sixth in production right now each has
been worse than the last and has been clearly motivated by
a lust for profits. This bespeaks a serious problem implicit
in the blending of art with profit.
The "sequel". Is there anything worse in the film in-
dustry? Well, possibly the prequel, but it's a close call. The
dance is always the same. A movie comes out that is truly
good; a movie that captures the imagination of the audi-
ence and sends everyone home happy. Now, in order to
fall victim to this "rape of creativity," a film need not neces-
sarily be a work of art after all, it happened to the "Die
Hard" films as well. But it's all the more tragic when the
film is inspired and well-crafted. I heave a sigh for the film
industry when, like Medea, it murders its own children.
The list of films that have been ravaged through fran-
chise is familiar to everyone who knows anything about
movies. I've already cited the example of "Saw." "Scary
Movie," which, while not artistic, was really the first sort of
parody film of its kind for my generation, has suffered the
same fate. And hey, remember how cool the first, esoteric
"Matrix" film was, before the franchise descended into ri-
diculous Christian allegory with Neo as Christ in the last
film?
Then, of course, there is the most well-known example


quels. With those prequels, George
Eric Chianese Lucas has succeeded in taking one
letters@alligator.org of the most engaging, brilliant, epic
and revolutionary film series of all
time and reducing it to an object of
derision for cynics like myself. Oh, and not just that, he also
managed to squeeze a pathetic Computer-Generated Im-
agery film, "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," out of it. It is for
this reason that Patton Oswalt is so fond of saying that if he
could, he would go back in time and murder George Lucas
with a shovel. Personally, I would bludgeon him with the
original "Star Wars" VHS box set.
Will this orgy of greed and philistinism ever end? The
answer, unfortunately, is no not s nnot long as there is a
single dime to be rung out of the public by repackaging
the same tired sequels. I eagerly await "Austin Powers IV,"
"Saw VII," a new "Matrix" film and, of course, "Star Wars"
episodes VII-X, complete with merchandizing and televi-
sion spin-offs. As long as people will pay, this Black Mass
will continue. When it reaches its crescendo, perhaps
George Lucas himself will emerge from a darkened room,
dressed in a black robe, kill the Coen brothers and then,
sated, return to slumber until he unleashes another Jar Jar
Binks on the world.
Remember, McDonald's s i a franchise, a movie is a
work of art.

Guest column

Use of diplomacy will help to stop Middle Eastern terrorists


Hard power, soft power, smart power what is the
right mix of U.S. resources for engaging with the
world and its challenges? This is a question sweep-
ing through Washington, and rightly so, as the Obama ad-
ministration seeks to reverse the toxic legacy of eight Bush
years on America's world standing.
We don't hear much about Kashmir these days. Yet,
like the tip of the iceberg, it is the visible reminder of a
much larger problem. The Partition of British India in
1947 displaced about 12 million people, spawned violence
that killed hundreds of thousands and left a psychologi-
cal legacy of distrust, animosity and unhealed trauma in
both India and Pakistan that has only grown worse over
the decades.
Kashmir got caught in the crossfire of Partition and re-
mains so today. In the last 60 years, it has been the focal
point of bitter and dangerous Indo-Pak relations.
Like the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the Kashmir situa-
tion has defied endless attempts at solution and has bred
increasing hatred, violence and seeming intractability.
Yet, a solution is possible and, I would suggest, ur-
gent.
Here is where President Barack Obama and Secretary
of State Hillary Clinton can exercise the best of what we
know of diplomacy. As long as the Pakistan military sees
India as its greatest security challenge and posts most of
its resources along that border, it cannot fully address the
rising threat posed by the Taliban. Meanwhile, India re-
jected including itself in Richard Holbrooke's mandate as
Special Envoy to the region and has consistently held that
it can solve the Kashmir situation on its own.


The world has spent decades
dealing with the waste products
of Partition. The U.S. would be
wise to go to the root and use its
power to engage the region in
finally addressing the Kashmir
Louise Diamond conflict and healing the relation-
SpeakingOut ship between the peoples of In-
dia and Pakistan. If France and
Germany, which had been enemies for centuries through
numerous wars, can turn that enmity into friendship after
World War II, there is no reason why India and Pakistan
can't do the same.
With a nod of acknowledgement to those in Washing-
ton speaking for the need to integrate defense, develop-
ment, diplomacy and democracy, I'd like to suggest my
own definition of smart power: using our resources to cre-
ate power with and power for, rather than power over or
power against.
The Taliban are spreading across Afghanistan and now
Pakistan. We've tried power over and against, with air at-
tacks and boots on the ground. Yet the Taliban only grow
stronger.
If Pakistan, with its nuclear arsenal, falls under their
control, we are rightly concerned about their penchant for
power. Power with means putting our resources together
with others in a cooperative, co-creative way.
Traditionally our resources have gone to the Pakistani
government and military, and this obviously will and
should continue, though sovereignty issues affect how
much influence we can have on how this money is spent.


We also have a solid United States Agency for Inter-
national Development presence in Pakistan, which could
be strengthened to engage more with Pakistan's relative-
ly strong civil society. Education is an especially critical
need over the long term, both to reduce poverty and to
empower people to take charge of their own destiny and
resist tyranny.
I'm sure the AID team in Pakistan is doing a fine job;
however, with no AID administrator appointed and no
National Development Strategy yet in place, our efforts
are not as full as they could be.
Consulting directly with a variety of unofficial players
in the region should also be part of the plan.
Women's groups, moderate religious leaders, coura-
geous human rights activists, democracy advocates, en-
trepreneurs, educators and others in Afghanistan have a
long history of dealing with the Taliban as do internation-
al relief and development agencies.
We can learn from their experiences, successes and
even failures which might help their counterparts in
Pakistan.
Our goal is to assist a strong, democratic nation of
Pakistan that is politically and economically viable and
can resist the influence of religious extremism and armed
militancy spreading throughout the region.
These steps would serve the common good both re-
gionally and globally and go a long way toward weak-
ening the ground under the power over approach of the
Taliban, al-Qaeda and similar groups.

President Obama must take steps to end war in Afghanistan


There's an old adage: "Show me what
you spend your money on, and I will
tell you your values."
President Barack Obama's request for a
"speedy" congressional vote on $83 billion
more in supplemental war funds to pay
for more troops, more drone bombing and
even more carnage in Afghanistan, has in-
advertently shown his values in practice:
war over diplomacy and wishful thinking
over clear-eyed realism.
It's time to get real on the United States
military involvement in Afghanistan. Mili-
tary engagement there since October 2001
has yielded neither the capture of Osama
Bin Laden, the political defeat of the Tali-
ban, nor the improvement of life for Af-
ghans, especially Afghan women.
This war has cost U.S. citizens, thus far,
more than $172.9 billion, according to the
Congressional Research Service.
The fiscal year 2009 budget deficit is
now projected to be $1.75 trillion. Because
it is borrowed money, the taxpayers and


our children will have to pay it back.
This will be a burden on the U.S. econ-
omy for decades. Meanwhile, military cor-
porations such as DynCorp International,
Triple Canopy and Halliburton are raking
in profits.
Moving from the cost in monetary dol-
lars to the cost in blood, this military mis-
adventure has claimed the lives of nearly
700 U.S. service members.
Former Arizona Cardinals professional
football player Pat Tillman, used as a Pen-
tagon poster boy until killed by "friendly"
fire, is perhaps the only name of the dead
of this war that Americans remember.
Nameless to us but their deaths
never to be forgotten or forgiven by their
families are thousands of Afghan civil-
ian casualties.
Under Obama's current policies, count-
less more young Americans and Afghan ci-
vilians will surely die for little to no gain.
Obama received a polite "no" from Eu-
ropean leaders to his request that North

of NATO, which was created to protect

There is no Soviet Union any longer;
Europe is economically powerful and
peaceful and Afghanistan is a long, long
way from the North Atlantic.
There are alternatives, far more afford-
able and rational, than accelerating the
military option in one of the poorest and
most war-torn countries on earth.
The U.S. could halt its military opera-
tions, especially the hated drone attacks
in the Afghan-Pakistani border areas, and
help organize a peace assembly led by
widely respected Afghans, both men and


women leaders.
The U.S. also has the ability to launch a
regional diplomatic effort, including Rus-
sia, Iran, India, Pakistan and Central Asian
states.
The American people are tired of war
and sick of seeing their tax dollars go to
bail out bankers and keep military con-
tractors in the black.
Afghanistan is not "the right war," it's
a sinkhole for our lives and tax dollars
and could be a disaster for the Obama
presidency, which began with such over-
whelmning sense of optimism.
Diplomacy, a drawdown of military
involvement and an exit strategy with a
timeline that's the realistic path to free-
dom from endless war and debt.
This course of action would surely
show the values that most Americans have
come to support.

UF reinstates Laguno to help secure $2M grant


* LUGANO WAS LAID OFF
BECAUSE OF BUDGET CUTS.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

Rose Lugano, a lecturer of Swa-
hili language and literature at UF
who was laid off last year as a re-
sult of budget cuts, was reinstated
last week.
Lugano was scheduled to lose
her job this summer. She challenged
her layoff by filing a grievance with


UF last July.
Paul D'Anieri, dean of the Col-
lege of Liberal Arts and Sciences,
said UF reinstated Lugano because
it decided she would help the uni-
versity's chances of securing a $2
million federal grant.
"We thought we'd be more
competitive if we maintained the
strength of that (African studies)
program," D'Anieri said. "Enroll-
ment in the classes also is sufficient
to justify continuing to teach them,"
he said.
The four-year grant would net
UF about $500,000 a year, said


Leonardo Villalon, director of UF's
Center for African Studies.
UF currently
receives the
grant and will
reapply for it
this fall, Villalon
said. The grant
is used to fund
conferences and
D'Anieri speakers, buy
library materi-
als, develop new courses, hold fes-
tivals and film viewings, fund the
center's performing arts program
and pay teaching assistants, among


other things, he said.
D'Anieri said Lugano's rein-
statement means something else
will have to be cut from the CLAS
budget. It's likely, he said, that the
college will not be able to follow
through on hiring a new faculty
member.
Lugano was one of eight faculty
and 66 staff who were laid off dur-
ing the last round of cuts.
She is also the third professor
to be reinstated this academic year,
following the reinstatement of assis-
tant professors Andrea Pham and
Hana Filip in March. All three pro-


fessors challenged their layoffs by
filing grievances with UF. Pham's
layoff was overturned after an in-
dependent arbitrator determined
UF violated its layoff policy. Filip
was reinstated less than a week lat-
er because UF determined she was
laid off for similar reasons.
Like Lugano, Pham and Filip
taught language classes.
D'Anieri said Lugano's rein-
statement had nothing to do with
the arbitrator's decision in Pham's
case.
Lugano could not be reached for
comment.


Theatre to draw final curtain on Shakespeare play

A UF graduate student

is directing the play


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Staff Writer
kemmets@alligator.org

This weekend will be the
last chance to see the Shake-
spearian comedy "A Mid-
summer Night's Dream,"
after a month-long run.
Set in Ancient Greece,
the play is filled with love,
dreams and fairy tales, said
the play's director Walton
Wood.
This will be the first time
the UF English graduate
student will direct a play
outside of UF's student the-
ater.
Drew Blair, who will
play Puck, a henchman, in
the 8 p.m. performances,
graduated from UF with a
degree in theater in 2005.


Puck causes mischeif be-
tween the lovers' situations
in the show, Blair said.
While multiple story
lines weave throughout the
play, Blair said the theme of
love is prevalent through-
out.
"No matter what the ob-
stacle, true love will always
persevere,
Local Blair said.
News The perfor-
mances will be
held at the Acrosstown Rep-
ertory Theatre, 619 South
Main St., Thursday, Friday
and Saturday nights.
The doors will open at
7:30 p.m., and tickets will
be $10 for the general au-
dience and $8 for students
and educators.


Actors perform a scene from William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at the Acrosstown Repertory
Theatre on Saturday.

UF could factor skill, education into layoffs


REGULATION, from page 1


ip was reinstated less than a week after UF decided the
reasons for her layoff were similar.
Referring to these two cases, UF Provost Joe Glover
told senators at Friday's meeting that, though UF doesn't
have the ability to eliminate one language in a depart-
ment, he thinks it should have that right.
Paula Fussell, interim vice president for UF's Human
Resource Services, said the proposed changes clarified
UF's layoff rules and would give UF more curriculum
control.
"If we have to make cuts, we wanna make sure that...
we make them in the most strategic areas and we keep
the things that are strategic to our future," she said.
The changes, if passed, would not affect faculty in the
faculty union, the United Faculty of Florida. Fussell said
UF seeks a similar change in its contract with the union.


John Biro, president of UF's chapter of the union, said he
couldn't comment specifically on the proposed changes
because of ongoing negotiations, but said, "Rules such
as these proposed ones would not be acceptable to the
faculty union."
Proposed changes to UF's layoff
policies that are still on the table in-
clude modifications to the manner in
which staff can be laid off. Instead of
only considering employment length
at UF and performance evaluations,
UF will now be able to consider other
Glover factors, like skill and education, Fus-
sell said.
The changes are posted at regulations.ufl.edu, where
they will be open for comment until May 27. The Board
of Trustees, UF's highest governing body, will vote on
the changes, most likely in June.

72 faculty will be eliminated


CUTS, from page 1
About $24 million in feder-
al stimulus money will be used
to plug some of the budget
gap, but Machen maintained
he will not use the money to
cover cuts to recurring costs,
like salaries, that must be paid
every year. Instead, it will be
used for transitional costs, like
paying faculty salaries when
they are in their notice period
after being laid off.
It could also be used for en-
ergy-saving upgrades to build-
ings, he said after the meeting.
He said he has not allocated
the entire $41 million that UF is
expected to get this year from
the stimulus package because
he is still not sure exactly how
it can be spent and because
there is the possibility of an-
other mid-year cut from the
state Legislature, in which case
he would like to have emer-
gency money on hand.


He said he expects the fed-
eral government to release the
details about how the stimulus
money can be spent later this
month.
A few senators questioned
Machen's use of the stimulus
money during Friday's meet-
ing.
"I... thought that the stim-
ulus money was specifically
to avoid layoffs and was spe-
cifically for job creation," said
Jane Brockmann, professor of
biology. "It was to be used not
to be set aside."
Machen told her it is a re-
quirement that all of the stimu-
lus money be used.
After the meeting, he said a
few academic programs would
be cut, accounting for about 2
percent of the total cut.
Although he said UF plans
to allow all students in termi-
nated programs to finish their
degrees, those programs will
stop taking new students.

Dwindling Nun-bers


Florida's oldest convent lacks new recruits W


In the United States' oldest city,
Florida's oldest convent rests. Where
many nuns of different Catholic orders
once spread across the state in the mid
1950s, only 78 remain from the Sisters
of St. Joseph Convent. The women,
whose influence stretched from Miami
to Jacksonville from public schools to
hospitals, now struggle to recruit new
members to religious life. Only 18 sisters
live in the Motherhouse in St. Augustine
and 14 sisters live in the newly built at-
tached retirement complex, Lourdes
Hall. Walking through the living facili-


ties, all the essential amenities exist for
the women who have spent their lives in
service of God and the Roman Catholic
Church.
Some of the elderly sisters choose
to spend their time in the crafts room
making items to be sold for funding
for the Catholic Church. Some sisters
spend time outside in the enclosed gar-
den areas. Some sit around after Mass,
drinking tea and ginger ale in the dining
room. And some sisters pray.
A small chapel located at the end of
the hall acts as a refuge to sisters looking


for answers on how to serve in their fi-
nal years. Walkers remain outside of the
holy chapel. Women, too feeble to kneel,
bow their heads.
Despite their age and dwindling num-
bers, the Sisters of St. Joseph continue to
impact the state of Florida. Whether by
teaching music or teaching the blind, the
sisters spend their days traveling from
church to hospital to service projects,
providing counsel, love and prayers.

audio slideshow.


(Clockwise from above) Sister Marie Therese Evrard leaves the hospital after a visit. The oldest convent in Florida
and the second oldest in the country, the Sisters of St. Joseph convent, resides in St. Augustine Florida. Sister Eu-
gene shows off her cross necklace over ginger ale after Mass in the dining room at Lourdes Hall. Her pendant is
modeled after the Great Cross of St. Augustine, and all of the Sisters of St. Joseph have one around their necks.
After the second Vatican council, the sisters switched to this cross. (Below) Some of the sisters living in Lourdes Hall
gather to chat after Palm Sunday Mass. (Below left) A walker waits outside the sanctuary in the hallway at Lourdes
Hall for its owner.

UF goes undefeated in run through NCAA Regional

0 THE NO. 1 GATORS WILL HOST CALIFORNIA IN
THIS WEEKEND'S SUPER REGIONAL.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

The Gators have shown their ability to make adjust-
ments and take over games all season. Sunday, that abil-
ity put them one step closer to the Women's College
World Series.
No. 1 UF (58-3) overcame three hitless innings and
pulled away late for a 9-0 victory against Lehigh (38-18-
1) to win the Gainesville Regional and advance to the
best-of-three Super Regionals.
UF will face California at home Saturday and Sun-
day, a rematch of last year's Super Regional, which the
Gators won in two games. Saturday night's game will
be on ESPN, while Sunday's action will be on ESPN2.
Lehigh pitcher Lisa Sweeney (23-10, 2.15 ERA) allowed
only one baserunner in the first three innings Sunday, as
shortstop Megan Bush walked to lead off the third.
"You have to give her a lot of credit. She really did a
good job of keeping our hits down," left fielder Franc-
esca Enea said. "But we just made some quality adjust-
ments to come through and get the hits and runs we
needed when we needed them."
Sweeney's unusual delivery threw the Gators off at
the beginning of the game, as she moved very slowly
after separating her hands. This caused the UF batters to
move their weight toward their front foot early. Andrew Stanfill Alligator Staff
"When she was throwing, the timing was off, so you UF left fielder Francesca Enea swings during the Gators' 9-0 NCAA Regional-clinching win against Lehigh on Sunday.

Gators win SEC East


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer

While the postseason was in full
swing for the UF softball and track and
field teams nearby, the Gators were
busy cementing their position for the
start of their own postseason run to-
ward Omaha, Neb., site of the College
World Series.
The Gators clinched the Southeastern
Conference East Division title on Friday,
which automatically earned them the
No. 2 seed in this week's SEC Tourna-
ment.
UF will open tournament play
Wednesday at 11 a.m. against Arkansas
in Hoover, Ala., in the first game of the
double-elimination tournament.
After splitting the first two games
with Kentucky (28-26, 12-18 SEC), No.
13 UF took the final game of the series
Saturday by a score of 13-9, giving the
Gators momentum as they head into the
postseason.
"I've always said that the first two


(games) are really important, but that
last one really sets the tone for the rest of
the week," UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan
said. "So obviously we feel a lot better
going into Hoover."
"This by far will be the tough-
est tournament we will play
until we hopefully get the
chance to go to Omaha."
Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach

After an early exit in last year's con-
ference tournament UF went home
on the second day after losing its first
two the Gators (38-18, 19-11 SEC)
hope that this season will be different
but know it won't be easy.
"This by far will be the toughest
tournament we will play until we hope-
fully get the chance to go to Omaha,"
O'Sullivan said.

Women crowned SEC Champs


By JESSICA ETTER
Alligator Writer

UF took home a Southeastern Con-
ference track title last weekend, but
the team's gender might be a surprise.
The unranked women's track and field
team ran away with its first SEC Out-
door Championship in six years, and UF's
men's and women's teams combined for
nine event victories at the four-day event
hosted by UF at Percy Beard Track inside
James G. Pressly Stadium.
The top-ranked UF men entered the
meet as favorites to win the title but fell
short finishing with 129 points to Arkan-
sas' winning total of 141.
"These things don't come easy, and this
really shows what a great team we have,"
UF head coach Mike Holloway said. "We
push each other hard all season and that


paid off this weekend."
With 135.5 points, the Gators defeated
No. 4 LSU and No. 12 Tennessee, the only
other teams to top100 points. Holloway
knew going into the weekend that earning
points from both his track and field ath-
letes would be vital to
win the championship.
"We are a very bal-
anced group, and that
shows a lot about our
program," Holloway
said. "If you want to be
Kevkhishvili a national championship
team, you need that bal-
ance."
The women's team also claimed five of
the nine individual championships. Junior
Evelien Dekkers won the women's jav-
elin, junior Mariam Kevkhishvili won the

Nelson strikes out season-high 14 Saturday


SOFTBALL, from page 19


think you have to wait," UF coach Tim Walton said.
"By the time you wait, you've waited too long, and
you're popping it up and missing it. So we did a
good job moving back in the batter's box, giving us
more starting time."
The Gators made the necessary changes in the
fourth, as catcher Kristina Hilberth led off with a
double to center field. Two batters later, Enea drove
in Hilberth with a double to center of her own. Right
fielder Kelsey Bruder, who led the team with three
hits and five RBIs, knocked a single to right field to
drive in Enea, giving the Gators a 2-run lead.
"She was mixing it up really well, so my ap-
proach was just to sit back," Bruder said. "She was
mixing in her changeup, too, so you had to have a
good balance the whole way through."
In addition to their adjustments at the plate, the
Gators also made some adjustments in the circle.
Pitcher Stacey Nelson (37-3, 0.43 ERA), who
promised to give up fewer hits than the nine she
allowed Texas A&M in UF's 7-1 victory Saturday,
lived up to her word. Nelson only allowed three on
the day one in each of the first three innings.
"She started throwing some changeups early in
the game, and that probably wasn't the adjustment
we needed to make," Walton said. "So we went


more to her screwball, curveball and dropball. She
started to really tie their hands and became harder
to hit after the first few innings."
On Saturday, the Gators scored 1 run in each of
the first two innings, but the Aggies pulled to with-
in 1 in the top of the fifth. UF responded with 2
runs in the bottom of the inning and 3 more in the
sixth to defeat Texas A&M, which had knocked the
Gators out of the postseason the
last two years.
"If they score, we want to come
back and start chipping away,"
said Hilberth, who led the team
with 3 runs Saturday, 2 of which
came after Texas A&M scored.
A&Min "We've been fortunate to string
onsome hits together in the last few
games when they've scored. We've been able to an-
swer back with the same amount or more."
The Gators had no need to make adjustments or
come back Friday night, as they took down Florida
A&M in a five-inning, 12-0 victory to start the re-
gional off on the right foot.
"We needed to start out with a win," said pitcher
Stephanie Brombacher, who got her 21st win of the
season in the opener. "One win rolls into another,
and we'll take that momentum into the next game
and in to super regionals."

women's shot put, junior Shara
Proctor claimed the women's
triple jump title as well as the
women's long jump, and fresh-
man Genevieve LaCaze won the
women's steeplechase.
Even though Kevkhishvili's
winning throw of 59-2.75/18.05m
was a personal best, set a new SEC
record and was the top throw in
the country this season, she feels
she can do better.
"I think I did all right this
weekend, but I know I can do
better then what I did," she said.
"I will be ready for regionals in a
few weeks."
Men's junior sprinter Calvin
Smith was awarded with the
Commissioner's Trophy, which is
awarded to the high-points scorer
from the championships. Smith,
who had 22 points, earned two
SEC championship titles in the
400-meter dash as well as partici-
pating in the winning 4x100-me-
ter relay team with Jeremy Hall,
Terrell Wilks and Jeff Demps.
The 4x100-meter relay team
won UF's first SEC title in that
event with a time of 38.74 sec-
onds, the third-fastest time in
school history. Hall, a winner in
the men's 200-meter dash, ran
the 100-meter dash in 10.08 sec-
onds, finishing second to LSU's
Trindon Holliday who finished
with a new track record of 10.01
seconds. Demps, who also ran
against Hall and Holliday, fin-
ished in ninth place after pulling
his hamstring. Demps, who had a
similar injury following the Penn
Relays in late April, was helped
off the track by trainers and is
being evaluated. Freshman Gray
Horn won the men's decathlon
on Saturday, setting another re-
cord for UF by earning the school


its first decathlon victory. Horn
edged out Michael Ayers of Ten-
nessee with 7,389 points, ending
Tennessee's four-year winning
streak in the event.
"It hasn't sunk in yet, and I
doubt it will sink in for a very
long time," Horn said after his
victory Saturday. "This is some-
thing I've dreamed about for my


entire life."
Next up for the men's and
women's teams is a trip to
Greensboro, N.C., to participate
in the NCAA East Regional on
May 29-30.
"We can't let this win take our
focus away from NCAA competi-
tions later this season," Holloway
said.

Media overreacting


to Meyer storylines

things.
First, the classes students are skipping are now over an
hour long. Second, the daily forecasts for the next two months
predict unbearably hot days and late-afternoon rain.
Third, football season is three months away, so people are
desperate for any story even remotely related to college foot-
ball.
So when ESPN had a slow news day, it dragged out an
old story about Urban Meyer's alleged feud with former UF
quarterback and radio host Shane Matthews and slapped a
sensationalist headline ("Meyer: Ex-Gators either with us or
against us") on it. Analysts and
news outlets made a much bigger
deal of the story than it deserved.
Matthews reportedly criticized
UF's offense after the 31-30 loss to
Mississippi. I thought Matthews
was just doing his job by pointing
out a flaw in the offensive game-
Adam Berry plan when an incredibly talented
Bad News Berry team lost a game it should have
aberry@alligator.org won. Professional analysts are still
paid to analyze the sports they
watch, aren't they?
At a recent Gator Club appearance, Meyer's comments
drew a lot of unwarranted attention.
"If you want to be critical of a player on our team or a
coach on our team you can buy a ticket for seat 37F, you're
not welcome back in the football office," Meyer said, accord-
ing to the Orlando Sentinel. "You're either a Gator or you're
not a Gator."
Matthews has since said that he is shocked at how over-
blown this story was and that he and Meyer have cleared the
air.
So that was UF's football drama for the summer, right?
Wrong.
When Steve Spurrier went on a radio show and turned the
rumor mill with talk of Meyer leaving UF for Notre Dame,
people started clamoring for more and looking at it as more
than what it was: a rumor.
Meyer wisely squashed it as quickly as possible, denying
the rumor to the Gainesville Sun on Friday.
"I didn't know what (Spurrier) was getting at," Meyer
said. "Here's a quote for you: I am not going to Notre Dame.
There's gotta be something else going on in sports. Isn't there
car racing going on?"
While I don't know a whole lot about car racing, there are
plenty of other sports still active at UF. As a matter of fact,
Meyer himself even Twitters about some of the teams.
(I know, I know. The verb is technically to tweet, but I re-
fuse to recognize that, much like I refuse to believe that Meyer
actually follows, say, the softball team enough to write 140
characters about it.)
Last weekend, five UF teams were in action, four of which
were in postseason play and three of which competed in
Gainesville.
The No. 1 UF softball team spent the weekend breezing
through the NCAA Regional in its home stadium. The Gators
will stay in town next weekend for a rematch of last year's Su-
per Regional against California to vie for a bid in the Women's
College World Series. When the Gators are competing for a
national title in Oklahoma City next week, you don't want to
be the uninformed "fan" who just started following the team,
do you?
Also keep an eye on the track-and-field teams. The wom-
en's team finished first and the men, who came into the meet
ranked No. 1 in the nation, took second at the Southeastern
Conference Outdoor Championships this weekend. Both
teams will compete through June.
The baseball team earned the No. 2 seed in the SEC Tour-
nament starting Wednesday. UF will likely host an NCAA
regional, which starts May 29. The men's golf team already
grabbed a spot in the NCAA Tournament starting May 27,
in Toledo, Ohio, by winning the Southwest Regional over the
weekend. Led by a group of upperclassmen, this team is still
hungry heading into its final tournament.
So there you go, four UF teams still in contention for a na-
tional championship. Ignore the sensationalist headlines, get
off the football message boards and start following some of
these less publicized sports.
If all else fails, there's always car racing.

No. 2 Georgia ends No. 15 UF's season in Sweet 16


* THE GATORS HAVE EIGHT PLAYERS
COMPETING INDIVIDUALLY.

By JOSEPH R. HOLZER
Alligator Writer

The No. 15 UF women's tennis team's
season ended with a 4-2 loss to No. 2 Geor-
gia in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tennis
Championships on Friday.
It was the third meeting this spring be-
tween the Southeastern Conference rivals,
and the upset-minded Gators struggled in
doubles before giving the Bulldogs all they
could handle in College Station, Texas.
The exit could easily be labeled as
heartbreaking, but these players' spirits
couldn't be shattered.
UF coach Roland Thornqvist was aware
of who his team was facing after splitting


a pair of close dual matches. Georgia was
what he thought it was.
"We knew we were playing a team that
was picked to be a favorite for the nation-
al championship," Thornqvist said. "We
were probably underdogs in most of the
spots. We all felt that we had a chance."
The Gators (16-10) gave up the pivotal
doubles point and Brooke Allen's No. 6
singles match to find themselves in a 2-0
hole. Freshman Jessica Alexander scored
the first point for UF by defeating No. 93
Monika Dancevic 6-4, 6-1.
The eighth- and ninth-ranked players
slugged it out for three sets on Court 1,
but UF's Marrit Boonstra fell to Chelsey
Gullickson 6-3, 2-6, 6-3, putting Georgia in
the position of needing one more win to
advance to the Elite 8.
Jo Mather stalled a Bulldogs' celebra-
tion with a 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 win over No. 56


Nadja Gilchrist.
With No. 40 Anastasia Revzina locked
in a third set with No. 55 Yvette Hyndman,
Barbara Pinterova reached a second-set tie-
breaker against Naoko Ueshima, who has
beaten the freshman in two of the last three
matches they've played
Against each other.
Though Pinterova
got off to a quick 5-1
Women's start, Ueshima was able
Tennis to thwart the attack and
even the score. Ueshima
eventually took the tiebreaker and the
match 6-3, 7-6 (2), clinching the win for
Georgia (27-2).
Revzina and Hyndman did not finish.
"All the credit to our players, because
they fought back and gave us a chance,"
Thornqvist said.
"I felt that we did what we could and


fought as hard as we could," he said, "but
they were certainly the better team to-
day."

SINGLES AND DOUBLES UPDATE: The cham-
pionships aren't over for eight UF players.
The men's and women's teams will each
be represented in the singles and doubles
draws, with singles beginning today.
Boonstra and Revzina will compete in
the women's first round. No. 23 Carlos
Cueto and No. 33 Alex Lacroix will play
on the men's side. The second round is
Wednesday.
Doubles play opens on Wednesday.
The women's No. 1 (No. 18 Boonstra and
Mather) and No. 2 (No. 25 Alexander and
Revzina) teams are in action along with the
men's No. 1 doubles team (No. 25 Antoine
Benneteau and Joey Burkhardt.)


JUMPBALL

Which is more impressive: a possible Borel Triple or the conventional one?


Forgive the man whose writing appears
to the right of mine.
His apparent lack of understanding
of horse racing tradition has left McCall-in'
It Like I See It on the wrong side of this ar-
gument.
See, the three legs of the Triple Crown
are each a different length.
And for good reason.
The Derby is a mile-and-a-quarter.
The Preakness is a mile-and-three-six-
teenths.
The Belmont is a mile-and-a-half.
It may not seem like much of a variation,
but in horse racing such differences abso-
lutely mean the difference between winning
and falling short.
Exhibit A was Saturday's Preakness
Stakes when Borel aboard Rachel Alexan-


S dra beat out 50-to-1
Derby winner Mine
That Bird by a single
length.
If the Preakness is
a sixteenth-of-a-mile
Phil Kegler longer (thereby mak-
Phil on the Hill ing it equal to the
pkegler@alligator.org Derby), we're talking
about Mine That Bird
winning the both races with different jock-
ys. So how much does Borel count for?
Because when a horse wins all three, it is
a true measure of its across-the-board supe-
riority. That's why only 11 horses have ever
done it and none since Affirmed in 1978.
In the 31 years since, 11 horses have won
the Derby and Preakness before falling short
in the Belmont.


et's call it the Calvin Crown. Or may-
be the Borel Blitz.
Whatever you want to call it, Cal-
vin Borel should be recognized for pulling
off a feat even more impressive than just
winning a Triple Crown if he's able to ride
Rachel Alexandra to a win at the Belmont
Stakes on June 6.
Hard-line, traditional horse racing fans
like Phil will say that winning the three
races doesn't count as a Triple Crown if it
isn't done on the same horse.
To me, what Borel is doing is better.
Usually, horses that win or come close
to winning the Triple Crown are the best in
the field, and Borel hasn't had that luxury.
He took a 50-to-1 longshot, Mine That
Bird, to a Kentucky Derby victory before
saddling up a filly and taking the Preak-


beating out the best
Mike McCall riders and horses the
McCall-in' It sport has to offer.
Like I See It He's the common
mmccall@alligator.org denominator in the
two races so far, and
if he adds another win in the Belmont, he'll
disprove the notion that jockeys are unim-
portant.
Without a good jockey, even the best of
horses will lose.
With Borel on board, it looks like any
horse can win, and he should be honored
for that.


Thompson hits 2-run bomb to lead Gators to series-clinching win Saturday

BASEBALL, from page 19


Earlier in the season, UF was swept by its first opponent,
Arkansas, but freshman first baseman Preston Tucker feels the
team has changed since then.
"We had a completely different team and makeup back
then," Tucker said. "I think we can come out with a lot more
confidence than the last time we played there because that was
our first SEC road series."
He believes the first series between the two teams will give
the team extra motivation.
"We are excited to play them because they beat us in the last
series," Tucker said.
It was Senior Day on Saturday, but a freshman stole the
show for the Gators.
UF scored early on Saturday to grab a 4-1 advantage, but
Kentucky used a big fifth inning to take a temporary 5-4 lead.
After attempting to steal third base, Daniel Pigott jammed
his finger, opening the door for freshman Tyler Thompson.
In the Gators' half of the fifth inning, Thompson hit his first
career home run to deep center field and drove in 2 runs.
"In my first at-bat I was sitting on a curveball, and he gave
me a fastball," Thompson said. "So then I just sat on a fastball
the second time and he gave it to me."
He finished 4 for 4 with three RBIs and 3 runs scored.
"I'm seeing the ball really well right now," Thompson said.
"I think it was two games ago that I started seeing the ball a lot
better."
But the lead changes continued, as Kentucky scored 3 runs in
the sixth inning. However, UF broke the game open in the sev-
enth and scored 4 runs with two outs. Shortstop Mike Mooney
singled up the middle to drive in the first two, and the next bat-
ter, Tucker, doubled to knock in another two runners.
After that, the Gators never looked back, as freshman Alex
Panteliodis earned the win after coming out of the bullpen and
pitching 1.1 scoreless innings.


UF outfielder Tyler Thompson rounds the bases after his home run during the Gators' 13-9 win against Kentucky in
McKethan Stadium on Saturday. Thompson finished 4 for 4 with three RBIs and 3 runs scored.

UF MEN'S GOLF

Gators win NCAA Regional


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer


If the regionals were any indication, the
Gators deal well with pressure.
"The pressure we feel is to win," senior Billy
Horschel said before the NCAA Southwest Re-
gional.
The No. 8 UF men's golf team lived up to
Horschel's words by winning the event in Aus-
tin, Texas, its first tournament victory away
from home since 2006. The team finished the
weekend at 22 over par, just two shots ahead of
second-place Texas Tech.
The Gators entered Saturday's final round
in third place, four shots out of first place. But
UF was able to ride Horschel's final round of 3
under par to victory and an NCAA Champion-
ship berth.
"This win was huge not just for our seniors
but for the whole team," he said. "It was big for
our confidence, and mentally it was key that
we got this win before nationals."
The final day of the event was particularly
tough for the teams due to inclement weather.
"We had about a two-hour rain delay, and
it was very windy and rainy," Horschel said.
"But we were still able to get the job done."
He finished with a score of 1 over par for
the event, good for the second-best individual
score of the weekend.
While Horschel was the hero for the Gators
on the final day, a different golfer stepped up


for UF in each round.
On the second day of the tournament, it was
junior Tyson Alexander's round of 3 under par
that helped the team stay in contention for first
place. He finished the event with a score of 4
over par.
"This week, we didn't play awesome golf,
but we played solid enough," Horschel said.
"Everyone played good."
But if the Gators are going to have success
in college golf's biggest tournament, they will
need improved play from arguably their sec-
ond-best golfer, junior Tim McKenney. While
he had a solid second round of even par, he
struggled the other two days and finished 12
over par. In his previous two events, he is a
combined 28 over par.
"This win was huge not just for our
seniors but for the whole team."
Billy Horschel
UF senior golfer

"His confidence is a little shaky right now,
but we just got to get him playing well,"
Horschel said. "He was close this weekend, so
hopefully in nationals he can play well."
The NCAA Championships will not start
until May 27, but UF is ready to make a run
for the title.
"It's always exciting when you get the op- Alligator File Photo
portunity to play for a national championship," UF senior Billy Horschel shot a 3-under 68 to lead the Gators' final-day jump
Horschel said. "You have to be excited." from third to first. He finished with the second-best overall individual score.

The rest of the media can have Dwight Howard; I'll take Stan


S tan Van Gundy really can't catch a
break lately.
It's tough enough being known as
former Knicks and Rockets coach Jeff Van
Gundy's Ron Jeremy look-alike brother,
but lately Stan has fallen victim to the
heat-of-the-moment comments of his star
player as well as the fickle media and pub-
lic opinion.
When the NBA Playoffs started just one
month ago, SVG was among the front run-
ners to receive the NBA Coach of the Year
Award after guiding the Orlando Magic to
a 59-23 record and the No. 3 seed in the
Eastern Conference.
Now the Magic are set to square off
with LeBron James and the Cleveland
Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals
after holding off the Philadelphia 76ers in
the first round and defeating the Boston
Celtics in the second round.
Sunday's Game 7 victory in Boston was
the franchise's greatest accomplishment
since the Shaq and Lil' Penny era ended a
decade ago.
Despite the copious amount of success
Stan and the Magic have enjoyed in the
past 30 days, it seems Lil Ron's coaching
ability has greatly diminished over the
course of this playoff run at least in the
eyes of Dwight Howard and some media
members.
After the Magic blew a 14-point fourth-
quarter lead to the C's in Game 5 and fell


behind 3-2 in the series, Howard was ex-
tremely blunt in describing the shortcom-
ings of his coach's game plan.
"I would just say it's tough to win all
season when you play inside-out with
people who got you off to a good season.
I think I'm capable of scoring in the post,"
Howard said after the loss. "I don't want
to say it's all about offense.
"But when you have a dominant player,
let him be dominant."
The dominant player Howard was re-
ferring to was, of course, himself, and
multiple members of the media, such as
ESPN's Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wil-
bon agreed with the 23-year-old center.
SportsCenter has even made it a habit
to refer to Stan as "The Master of Panic," a
nickname Shaq gave him after Van Gundy
correctly and unapologetically called the
Big Aristotle a "flopper" after a regular
season game with O'Neal's Suns.
Ironically, the media is using Howard's
comments as evidence of said panic even
though SVG called out Shaq for flopping
against Howard.
Howard, who averaged 20.6 points per
game in the regular season, felt as though
he didn't get enough touches down the
stretch of Game 5 and finished the game
with 12 points on 10 field-goal attempts.
Ten shots seems like a drop in the bucket
for a "dominant player," but Howard av-
eraged just over 12 field-goal attempts per


contest during





shot attempts,
Kyle Maistri 10 would hardly
Kyle Points be an outlier.
kmaistri@alligator.org A more well-
kept secret,
however, is that
while Howard is perhaps the most domi-
nant rebounder and shot blocker in the
NBA today, he is not a dominant offensive
player.
He has never averaged as many as 21
points per game over the course of a regu-
lar season, and 17 other players averaged
more points per contest in 2008-09, includ-
ing Ben Gordon and David West.
Despite all those facts, Stan Van Gundy
found himself under fire for not feeding
the ball to a sub-60-percent free-throw
shooter at the end of a tight battle.
Though not as beloved by the Magic
faithful, forwards Hedo Turkoglu and
Rashard Lewis shoot better than 80 per-
cent from the charity stripe and are much
better options at the end of close games.
"I have to do it defensively where I have
to be more aggressive, and offensively I
have to get the ball," Dwight said. "I don't
think you are going to win a lot of games


when your post player only gets 10 shots.
It's tough to get yourself going and get a
lot of shots without a lot of touches. We
have to do a better job with that."
One might argue that you could win at
least 67 games with a similar game plan
and that SVG made his case for Coach of
the Year with a similar game plan.
Honestly, I don't blame Howard for
saying the things he did.
It was a tough loss, and he felt he wasn't
given a fair opportunity to help his team
win the game.
I do, however, blame any media and
fans who quickly turned on a coach with a
proven track record in multiple NBA cities
(Orlando and Miami).
Houston Rockets general manager
Daryl Morey recently said on ESPN col-
umnist Bill Simmons' podcast that he, in
fact, cast his Coach of the Year ballot for
Van Gundy.
In sharp contrast, Orlando Sentinel col-
umnist Mike Bianchi recently wrote a col-
umn saying that the post-game criticism
might even affect Stan's job security.
Could you imagine the NBA Coach of
the Year being fired had the Celtics been
able to defend their home court?
The coaching profession is one with
quick turnarounds, knee-jerk hires and
fires and brutally fickle job security.
But of course Stan already knows that;
he is, of course, the brother of Jeff.
