Autopsy: Shooting victim attacked officer


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer

New forensics information in the fatal
shooting of a man by an Alachua County Sher-
iff's deputy supports witness statements that
the man continued to attack the officer after
being Tasered.


Nicholous Vertex Weeks, 18, was shot sev-
eral times on Friday by Lt. Mike Hanson in the
intersection of NW 34th Street and 39th Av-
enue after physical force and the use of a Taser
gun did not stop Weeks from attacking the
deputy, said Gainesville Police Department
spokesman Keith Kameg.
The preliminary autopsy shows that there


were multiple shots fired because Weeks con-
tinued to attack Hanson even af-
Lcal ter being shot several times.
News "Witnesses said they thought
the deputy was firing blanks be-
cause Weeks wasn't stopping,"
Kameg said.
Kameg said when Hanson arrived at the


scene and tried to break up a fight between
Weeks and a girl, Weeks came at the officer
with force.
The deputy then shot Weeks with a Taser
gun for five seconds.
Hanson attempted to use the Taser gun
again when Weeks pulled the prongs from the

By MONICA VIGO
Alligator Contributing Writer

College students may start taking general education
math and English classes more seriously soon.
The Florida Senate presented a bill on educational
funding to Gov. Charlie Crist Friday. The bill will auto-
matically pass if not signed by Crist on May 30.
If approved, SB 1676 will go into effect July 1, accord-
ing to the Florida Senate Web site.
The bill will repeal the College

tered to students who did not prove
competency in communication and
mathematics through general educa-
tion English and math courses, ac-
cording to UF's Office of the Univer-
Crist sity Registrar Web site.
Mostly affecting the funding for
virtual schools and grade school issues, the bill contains Andrew Stanfill/ Alligator Staff

Pesticide resistance to blame for return of bedbugs


By ALLIE CONTI
Alligator Contributing Writer

After a 50-year hiatus, bedbugs
are back in the developed world
due to a resistance in currently used
pesticides putting Americans at an
increased risk of finding the critters
in dorm and hotel rooms.


Isolated incidents of bedbugs
have occurred a few times this year
in UF dorm rooms, according to
Wayne Walker, senior pest control
technician at UF.
Sharon Blansett, assistant direc-
tor of housing for research and orga-
nizational development at UF, said
the incidents occurred in graduate


housing and family housing on
campus.
Blansett said she attributes the in-
festations to students
On bringing the bugs back
Campus after traveling over-
seas and buying previ-
ously infested furniture.
The outbreaks, which have also


occurred at Ohio State University
and other colleges, are treated with
insecticides, extreme heat and steam
cleaning, Walker said.
Margie Pfiester, a doctoral stu-
dent in the UF department of ento-
mology who studies bedbugs, said
that the old means of exterminating
bedbugs have lost their effective-


ness.
Entomologists are advocating the
reintroduction of insecticides previ-
ously banned by the Environmental
Protection Agency, she said.
Pfiester recommends checking
dorm rooms and hotel beds when

AP Source: 1st Gitmo detainee coming to US trial
WASHINGTON (AP) An Obama administration official says
a top al-Qaida suspect held at Guantanamo Bay will be sent to New
York City for trial.
Ahmed Ghailani would be the first Guantanamo detainee brought
to the U.S., and the first to face trial in a civilian criminal court.
An official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the per-
son was not authorized to disclose the decision, tells The Associated
Press that the administration has decided to bring Ghailani to trial
in New York. He was indicted there for the 1998 bombings of U.S.
embassies in Africa attacks that killed 224 people, including 12
Americans.

Study: Birds hold grudges


A mockingbird grazes UF biology major Devon Duffy in an attempt to drive her away from
its nest on the UF campus April 19.


By HUNTER SIZEMORE
Alligator Staff Writer

Mockingbirds don't take harassment
lightly.
In fact, they're likely to hold a grudge, a
recent UF study found.
The birds remember people who threaten
their nests and react sooner to targets they
see as more threatening, according to the
study published by several professors and
students in the Proceedings of the National
Academy of Sciences.
"We may view all mockingbirds as alike,
but it certainly doesn't work the other way
around," said Douglas Levey, a UF profes-
sor who headed the study. "When you walk
by a mockingbird perched on a rail near Re-
itz Union, you are his business."
While researching urban mockingbird
behavior in Gainesville, Christine Stracey,
a UF biology graduate student, noticed that
the birds became defensive when sighting
her, while they ignored homeowners, gar-
deners and other non-threatening humans,
she said.
In some cases, she believed that the birds
could even spot her car, which she started


parking out of sight of mockingbird nests.
After Stracey discussed the behavior with
Levey, they developed a study in which 24
nests were located on UF's campus, and the
birds' reactions to aggressors were tested.
A study participant would approach and
touch a nest four days in a row, and on the
fifth day a new participant would repeat the
process.
"We may view all mockingbirds
as alike, but it certainly doesn't
work the other way around."
Douglas Levey
UF professor

The mockingbirds would leave their
nests increasingly early as the first study
participant approached but did not react to
the second participant until threatened.
This behavior gives the mockingbird an
edge in urban environments, Stracey said.
"Imagine if you were a mockingbird and
you attacked everyone you saw," she said.
"In a place like Butler Plaza or on campus,
you wouldn't have any time to feed yourself
or your babies."

UF senior remembered for compassion, love of Gville


* HE DIED ON APRIL 30.

By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer
Ronald Stiles III would have been ecstatic
to see his Orlando Magic finally make it to the
NBA Eastern Conference Finals.
But his dad will cheer on the team for him,
remembering the team spirithe shared with his
son, a UF senior who died April 30 in a surfing
accident at Crescent Beach, Fla., Ronald Stiles
Jr., Ronald's dad, said his son went with three
of his friends to relax after final exams.
"The sheer number of people who showed
up and spoke to us at his funeral was a partial


testimony of the impression he left on people,"
Stiles said.
Before attending UF, Ronald earned his as-
sociate degree from Valencia Community Col-
lege in Orlando.
"He had taken five classes in the spring,
which was something he had never done,"
Stiles said.
Stiles said he was proud of his son for earn-
ing a 3.0 GPA while working at the O'Connell
Center and in the kitchen at Caf6 Gardens.
Stiles said he had never seen his son hap-
pier than the last time the two were together.
"He loved living in Gainesville," he said,
adding that his son was excited to start his
new internship, where he would have coordi-
nated sports events.


Ronald, who was a recreation and sports
major, loved sports since he was a kid and
played basketball for the YMCA despite his
father's effort to turn him
into a baseball player.
However, when he saw
his son's talent, Stiles wasn't
upset for long.
"I couldn't believe how
good he was at his age,"
he said. "When I sat in the
stands, I was so proud and
Stiles happy."
Ronald's love for basketball didn't end
with his childhood basketball teams. He was
also an Orlando Magic fan and watched the
team, win or lose, from its first season.


"Those were always good times in our
house because it was family time," Stiles said.
"We'd sit around the TV with a bowl of pop-
corn, and it was a great thing for us to do."
When he was about 12, Ronald spent a short
stint as a professional wrestling fan. Stiles said
Ronald and his friends would practice moves
on each other.
"We went through three or four bed frames
during that time," he said.
Ronald also loved music, listening to artists
ranging from Huey Lewis to ZZ Top. He even
made plans to take his grandmother to Grace-
land to see Elvis' estate.
"Not because he had to, but because that
was just the kind of person he was," Stiles
said.

GAINESVILLE CITY GOVERNMENT

Donovan seeks protection for kids


n. |.......u.| i|i..u.u/ .n'...u. ..
Gainesville Equal Opportunity director Jimmie Williams pauses while
discussing a proposal during a meeting of the Gainesville Equal Op-
portunity Committee in City Hall Wednesday.


By ROBERTA 0. ROBERTS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Poor children may get a leg up if Commissioner
Jack Donovan has his way.
The issue of adding disadvantaged children as a
new protected class to the city code of ordinances was
brought up at Donovan's recommendation during
Wednesday's Equal Opportunity Committee meet-
ing, among other issues such as education.
However, Stephanie Marchman, assistant city at-
torney, said there needs to be more research on the
legal viability of the proposal. She added that no other
cities in the country have this protection.
Donovan was not at Wednesday's meeting to ad-
dress the Equal Opportunity Committee's questions
about the proposed addition.
"We need more clarification from him," said Com-
missioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa.
During the committee's last meeting in April, Com-
missioner Donovan suggested adding an amendment
to Chapter 8, the discrimination section of the city
code of ordinances, to establish a category where the
city "will not tolerate discrimination of children based
on their socio-economic status."
The chapter currently prevents discrimination
based on race, color, creed, religion, gender, national
origin, age, handicap, marital, family status, gender
identity and sexual orientation.
"If declared a discriminatory class, we would have
some teeth to allocate resources to children with spe-


cial needs to compensate for what their families may
be unable to provide in social and economic terms,"
Donovan said.
Donovan added that by "social terms" he was re-
ferring to education.
"I think both government and city and
our community in general need to take
a different approach than before so that
every child has the right of life, liberty and
pursuit of happiness because that trans-
lates to equal opportunity."
Jack Donovan
Gainesville City Commissioner

Donovan also sees the proposal as a tool to make
sure disadvantaged children get to school.
"Often a child wants to go, but their parents don't
have the means to get them to school. This leads to a
very high truancy rate, which has a high correlation
with crime rates and drop-out rates among teenag-
ers," he said.
Donovan feels optimistic that the protective class
could help children achieve the American dream, he
said.
"I think both government and city and our com-
munity in general need to take a different approach
than before so that every child has the right of life, lib-
erty and pursuit of happiness because that translates
to equal opportunity," Donovan said.

Editorial
After a brief hiatus highlighted by one not-so-esteemed
staffer unsuccessfully teaching British men how to play
beer pong in Orlando, we officially declare the Depart-
ment of Darts & Laurels back and better than ever.
Hey la, hey la, the 'Gator's back!
Not only did we once break the record on that rather ad-
dicting basketball game at Shaboom Shabooms, home of the
LeBomb James, we totally have a backup career plan for when
we find ourselves homeless with only our journalism degrees to
provide us shelter: plumbers.
Before we head back to our favorite indoor basketball court
and channel our inner LeBron (sorry, Kobe), the Department of
Darts & Laurels proudly presents this week's we-even-drink-
the-same-flavor-of-Vitamin-Water-as-King-James edition of...



Darts & Laurels

While marital infidelity certainly runs rampant across Amer-
ica, there must be a statute of limitations restricting 78-year-old
women from going ape-shit on their diaper-donning spouses.
For beating the living crap out of her 85-year-old husband
for allegedly cheating on her 35 years ago, the Department of
Darts & Laurels tosses a let's-just-say-bowls,-pipes-and-carpet-
sweepers-came-into-play DART at the sinister septuagenar-
ian. The damage? The laundry list of ailments included broken
ribs, pelvis and a wrist.
Sadly, this was not a WWE "Anything Goes" match.
With food stamps limiting consumers to a very strict selec-
tion of grocery store items (trust us), a bit of creative genius
from one Pennsylvania man led to some pretty sweet results.
The Department of Darts & Laurels awards a we-sure-could-
use-some-fake-money-down-here-in-Gainesville LAUREL to
the confectionery conman for using a fake $20 coin to score
some ice cream. A bogus $20 coin could feed a family of four at
Leo's or one hungry Alligator staffer.
Did someone say rolls?
When college freshmen leave home for the first time, there
is a moment where they come to the realization they no lon-
ger have to keep their bedrooms neat and tidy. For calling the
cops on his adult son because he refused to clean his room (and
for tossing a plate at him), the Department of Darts & Laurels
chucks a parents-just-don't-understand DART at Andrew Miz-
sak. Take this as a warning, faithful Darts & Laurels reader -
avoid moving back in with your parents after you graduate at
all costs.
There goes the neighborhood.
Word out of North Carolina reveals news of an aspiring
crook who turned to a piece of fruit to help him in his devious
endeavors. The Department of Darts & Laurels presents a do-
tell-us-what-beats-an-edible-weapon LAUREL to John Szwalla
for attempting to rob a store with nothing more than a banana.
Hell, we've heard of criminals holding up stores with nothing
more than their fingers pretending to be a gun, but a banana is
just so much more imposing.
Trust us when we say plantains work great, too.
What could've been the greatest destination in China since
the creation of the Great Wall, a still-under-construction sex
amusement park will never host a single guest thanks to typical
Chinese bureaucracy. For demolishing what would've proved
to be a mecca for horny Asian couples and public masturbation,
the Department of Darts & Laurels launches a we-couldn't-
wait-for-the-sex-technique-workshops DART at the Chinese
government. Where else will the Chinese people be able to go
to see giant-sized reproductions of male and female anatomy?
Sure Rod Blagojevich will undoubtedly go down in infamy
as one of the most despicable politicians in American history,
but there is no denying the man has one helluva head of hair.
The Department of Darts & Laurels extends a volumizing-for-
really-big-hair LAUREL to "Blago" shampoo for, well, giving
us yet another excuse to write about our favorite former gover-
nor from the great state of Illinois. The product's slogan? "It's
Bleep'n Golden!"
That's all for this week. See you on the flip-side.

Pelosi's cats steal speaker's spotlight


Nancy Pelosi may be the Speaker of the House of
Representatives and the most powerful woman
in the history of American politics, but she is
stunningly bad at being a public figure in the digital age.
Thankfully, her genius cats communicate so well for her
on YouTube.
Even though she has been the leader of the Demo-
cratic House for a while, the only time Pelosi seems to
shine is when she reflects poorly on her party and her
people. Almost every time she opens her mouth, Pelosi
creates controversy with dumb comments and dumber

Her public speaking skills place her only slightly
above Elmo from "Sesame Street." When chopped up
into sound bites, a Pelosi speech plays like Elmo's vague-
ly demented grandma, who somehow was elected to
Congress.
Today Pelosi is trying to dig her way out of a series
of boneheaded comments about waterboarding and tor-
ture. Getting strapped to a board and almost drowning
would be terrifying, but it has to be far more pleasant
than having to listen to Pelosi stammer on about what
she knew or when she knew it.
With all of this negativity and failure swirling around
Speaker Pelosi, it is easy to overlook her profound im-
pact on today's politics the Capitol Cat Cam. Just type
"Speaker Pelosi presents Capitol Cat Cam" into a You-
Tube search and behold the hidden brilliance of a woman
who obviously speaks most effectively through her act-
ing cats.
Pelosi, via the conduit of her two fuzzy kitties, is clear-
ly combating the stagnant top-down flow of information
and truth in our society with a clever and well-acted eso-


teric cat play.
The gray cat, in an obvious refer-
ence to the Greek goddess Themis,

itchy face.
Cut to the next scene, and this time the black cat is
sitting next to an arrangement of flowers (an allegory of
the perfection of nature such a brilliant cat). The cat
turns its head to the left, and then continues the turn and
almost twists its head all the way around so that kitty is
practically facing backward. Maybe the cat heard a noise
and looked around. Dig a little deeper, though, and see
the cat acknowledge how Pelosi veers left on the political
spectrum and, in classic pantomime form, shows how a
way forward is possible with an eye trained on our ven-
erated past and the lessons of history.
The cats then both meet on a windowsill to gaze out
onto the Washington Monument. They hold the pose in
order to let the genius of their performance sink in. The
video ends in a Rickroll, a nod to the obfuscating presence
of the Internet in our everlasting search for the truth.
I can't wait to see how the cats will handle this latest
controversy I wonder if they even make waterboards
in cat size.

UF school to perform at arts festival

By STEVE JOHNSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's School of Theatre and Dance took its show
on the road this week, headlining Florida's First Coast
Arts Festival in St. Augustine.
Throughout this week, the school will perform 11
shows, said Kevin Marshall, the school's director.
"It is something we have never undertaken to the
scale of this project," Marshall said.
The festival began on Monday and will continue
each night through Sunday with performances of
"Pride and Prejudice," "The Complete Works of Wil-
liam Shakespeare (Abridged)" and "Grease."
In addition to the performing arts, the School of
Art and Art History will present eight larger-than-life
sized sculptures for visitors of the historic city to en-
joy.
The weather was a deterrent for some theatergoers
this week.
"We're hoping the skies will clear, and we will
have a good turnout for the weekend," said Stan
Kaye, associate professor and lighting designer.
Seating more than 4,000 spectators, the St. Augus-
tine Amphitheatre is on a 16-acre section of Anastasia
State Park.
"One of the reasons why we're doing this is to get
the word out about the exceptional work we do here,"
Marshall said. "Sometimes when you're in a place like
Gainesville, you become one of the best-kept secrets
in the state."
Along with modifying each show, moving multi-
ple productions from Gainesville to St. Augustine has
taken more than a year of preparation.
"We're going into a venue that we don't know,"
Kaye said. "I think it's great we're bringing what we
do to the public outside of the building we normally
operate in."
UF's School of Theatre and Dance is hoping to pro-
mote the history of St. Augustine and the fine arts by
working with the St. Augustine Tourist Development
Council to bring visitors from around the state with
sponsorships from NPR News and television adver-
tisement.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at ticketmas-
ter.com, where a schedule of performances is listed.
"We're expanding (our program) out to the St. Steve Johnson/Alligaton
Augustine area," Marshall said. "We may be in A hot rod from the production "Grease" sits in the Constans Theatre be

Professor


awarded


$25K grant

A UF assistant professor research-
ing regulatory T cells to help find
better treatments for autoimmune
diseases such as Type 1 diabetes was
recently awarded a grant to continue
his work.
Out of 140 applicants Joseph Lar-
kin, 35, is one of four national winners
who will be receiving $25,000 in re-
search products from
BD Biosciences.
BD Biosciences, an
international medical
technology company,
awards the grants
to enable important
research by funding
scientists' experi-
ments to better understand disease,
according to a press release.
Larkin will research regulatory T
cells to determine their ability to regu-
late autoimmune diseases and can-
cers.
Ultimately, he said he hopes that
his technique of modulating the cells
will lead to the treatment of Type 1 di-
abetes, rheumatoid arthritis and mul-
tiple sclerosis.
A self-proclaimed Gator-for-life,
Larkin received a Bachelor's Degree
from UF in 1990 and graduated with
his Ph.D. in 2000. Larkin began teach-
ing at UF in April 2007 as an assistant
professor in the department of micro-
biology and cell science.

son's gun, the deputy shot him mul-

Keith Kameg

Week's family has refused to
speak with officials, despite numer-
ous attempts to contact them, Kameg
said.
Officials are still unclear about
why Weeks was at the intersection
and how he got there.
Week's juvenile history included
a charge of battery on a law enforce-

Pfiester also said that the lull
of bedbug infestation after World
War II was a briefly enjoyed ab-

"Bedbugs have been docu-

said. "Greeks and Romans wrote
about bedbugs."
Although the bugs are annoy-
ing and can have psychological
consequences for those who are
pestered by them, there is no evi-
dence that they transmit disease,
she said.
Bedbugs are much more of a
problem for students who live


off campus, even if they are less
likely to contract them in their
homes.

Gainesville offers Vikane fumi-
gation, a very powerful treat-
ment that is three

Students who live in apart-

the mercy of their landlords, as
Vikane cannot be applied to a
single unit and must be applied


to an entire apartment building.
This would cost the building
owner a huge amount of money,
according to a pest control ser-
vice technician at Orkin.
That's why Margie Pfiester
is so adamant about preventing
bedbugs before they become a
problem.
"You're not going to just
wake up with bedbugs one day,
you're going to get them from
someplace," Pfiester said. "And
that is something you definitely
do not want."


Hold to be placed on students' records if they don't pass


TEST, from page 1
Not all students have to take the exam,
which is comparable to the SAT or ACT.
Most students are exempt through test
scores or by earning a cumulative GPA of at
least a 2.5 in specified communication and
math classes, Cooke said.
"I didn't know what the CLAST was or
that we needed anything but a passing grade
in those classes until I had a hold on my stu-
dent record to take the exam," said Sinteria
Cooper, a health education and behavior ju-
nior at UF.
Cooper plans on taking the test this sum-
mer.
"They say you need a C, but they don't
really say anything about the 2.5 GPA," she
said.


The bill may sound like good news to stu-
dents because it removes a test, but it does
not remove the requirement that students
must prove their ability in communication
and computation.
Cooper is happy to see the test go but only
if UF informs students of the ways they can
be exempted from it before a hold is placed
on their record.
If students do not satisfy the CLAST re-
quirements after earning 60 credits, a hold
will appear on their record. According to
UF's Office of the University Registrar, stu-
dents will not be able to register for classes if
CLAST requirements are not met by the time
they receive 96 credits.
Students who could have taken the
CLAST will be able to verify their skills by
retaking the courses that exempt students


from the test.
Receiving a score of at least 500 on the
SAT math and verbal portions, or a score of
at least 22 on the ACT reading portion and
21 on the ACT English and math portions
may also exempt students, according to UF's
CLAST exam alternative methods.
"I do not see how the repeal could be
helpful for students, because when enacted
into law (they) will have one less alternative
for demonstrating their skills," said Cooke.
The CLAST will still be administered on
paper on June 6 before possibly becoming
inactive July 1.
UF, which has had the right to develop
and administer the exam statewide since
1996, will add times for the students to take
the computerized version of the test during
June if the bill is passed, Cooke said.

Local artist draws from charms


KATRINA GALVEZ + AVENUE WRITER
Art is not where Sergio Castro wanted to
take his life when he started at Santa Fe Col-
lege as a general business major. He started
helping his friend with her art homework and
unveiled a talent that has changed his career
path, earned him local recognition and put
some serious money in his pocket.
Castro, 22, changed his major to studio art
after realizing his talent and passion for art,
trading in a future in the business world for
a future in something he said he knows will
make him happy.
"Monetary reimbursement only lasts so
long," said Castro. "I want to give 110 percent
of myself in what I'm doing. For me happiness
is most important waking up and being hap-
py with what you're going to do that day."
His big break in the Gainesville art scene
came with a showing at Sharab Lounge where
a bartending job gave him the opportunity to
show some of his work.


"Everything leads to something else," says
Castro of his opportunities in Gainesville.
"It's a good cultural breeding ground, just
from around town and seeing how everyone
communicates, it's a good place to work out
of because there's a lot of inspiration. If you
embrace what you do and i
you're happy with it, the With my w(
negativity is outweighed." attention t
Castro's inspiration
comes from the little things Serg i
that give life character. Ar
As a child, he hated
trips to antique shows and
stores with his mom, an interior designer in
Orlando, until he got closer to the pieces and
noticed their texture, the little things that make
each piece unique.
Castro makes visits to "The Junk Lady," a
woman who sets up camp on State Road 441
and sells things that have been dropped off on
about two or three acres of land, for inspira-
tion.

ABBY O'CONNEL+ AVENUE WRITER
In a time of tight budgets and limited resourc-
es, UF musical theater students keep singing and
dancing. Economic hardships and stormy weather
don't stop these performers from sharing their tal-
ents with the world.
On Monday, UF's musical theater department
performed "Grease" at the St. Augustine Amphi-
theatre to kick off Florida's First Coast Arts Festi-
val.
The students rehearsed the show in just three
weeks after learning they could not perform their
fall production of "The Rocky Horror Picture
Show" due to copyright issues.
While "Grease" is an inherently cheesy play,
these talented students brought the show to life
with its full potential of campiness. If you missed
the first showing, tonight you will have another
chance to catch it tonight.
Their show hosted some technical diffivulties,
but despite the wind and drizzle gusting through
the outdoor theater, which fortunately had at least
a roof, the cast managed to keep smiling and keep
the audience laughing.


The show hosted some fun surprises, like the
"Greased Lightning" car actually drove around
stage and they even included a special Gator shout
out.
Overall, the colorful costumes and sock hop-
style music were perfect for the family-filled audi-
ence and the family-oriented aim of the event.
Tony Mata, the founding artistic director of
the festival and the director of "Grease," has been
working for three years to create this event "to
showcase our talent outside of UF."
Florida's First Coast Festival will hopefully be
the first of many annual weeklong festivals that
bring various UF performances and artistic works
to St. Augustine.
The inaugural festival, which began May 18,
included renditions of "Pride and Prejudice," an
opera, a sculpture exhibit and an orchestra.
The event ends with reruns of "Grease" and
Pride and Prejudice, and final showing of "The
Complete Works of Shakespeare, Abridged."
"It is a difficult time to start a theater program
with the arts going under and the economy going
against us," Mata said. "But I think we're going to
make it."

Muggy


days make


for steamy


hot nights

ASHLEY ROSS + AVENUE WRITER

If you're stuck in Gainesville
all summer then you definitely
won't be splashing around at
the beach like Danny and Sandy,
but that doesn't mean you can't
have your own sexy summer
nights-or even days.
As you struggle to fight the blis-
tering hot sun, you might think the
right thing to do is cool off, but the
truth? It's way more fun to heat
things up.
Follow these suggestions of how
to keep your summer sexy and
you'll be saying, "That's hot" more
often than Paris Hilton did in 2006.
First things first, living in Florida
we can't expect anything other than
warm, humid weather. So, summer
is the perfect time to forfeit your bat-
tle with the AC because humidity
only steams things up (not to men-
tion it will lower the effects of global
warming-hotter and 'greener' sex,
all in one!).
The Sun-
Summer shine State of-
Sex fers the perfect
sex weather.
Having sex in
the cold is just not as good, not as
sexy and obviously, not as hot.
Going at it isn't all that great
when your nipples are hard and
you've got goose bumps replacing
your freshly shaven legs.
But I understand that you don't
want to feel muggy and wet all day,
which brings about suggestion num-
ber two. Taking a post-sex shower
can cool things off right away while
concurrently heating them back up.
Need a major cool down? There's
no better time to crack open a couple
beers, or mix up some pina coladas,
both of which will undoubtedly get
you back in the mood. You could
even take a (skinny) dip in the pool.
And, so, thisbrings me to perhaps
the most important facet of having a
sexy summer: pool parties. College
students stripped down to teeny
bikinis or super cool swim trunks,
bodies wet and glistening from both
tanning oil and alcohol spilled from
upside-down margaritas, how could
this not be sexy?
These parties epitomize sexiness
and offer an ideal way to meet some-
one to heat things up with. In order
to score a sex partner, be sure not to
drink too much. We all know how
fun drunk sex can be, but sloppy sex
is just the opposite. That being said,
try to keep your bathing suit on at
all times by the pool. If your suit
slips off during a wild chicken fight,
that's okay, but try to stray from the
girls-or boys-gone wild image.
So, there you have it, summer
sex tips to keep your stifling days
as steamy as ever. If you savor the
sweltering sun, your sexy stories
will leave your friends begging you,
"Tell me more, tell me more!"

Ruffles, florals fit for royalty


REBEKAH GEIER + AVENUE WRITER
This summer you will be feeling more than
the heat. Textured fabrics and ruffled pieces are
dominating the fashion industry this season,
from models on designer runways to students
on Gainesville's sidewalks.
This play on fabrics creates hands-on outfits
that are reminiscent of a childhood summer
with fun, floral prints and romantic ruffles.
Ruffles have been making waves in all as-
pects of the fashion world since the 1500s. Roy-
als, like Queen Elizabeth, lined their wrists and
necks with ruffles as symbols of high status
in society. Colonial men wore light ruffles on
their collars and wrists under their suit jackets
to add flare, and in the culture of Spanish fla-
menco dancers, layers of flowing fabric accen-
tuated each dancer's twists and turns.
Today, ruffles are for everyone. Such pieces
owned the runway of high-end designers like
Roberto Cavalli, Valentino, Zac Posen and
Dolce & Gabbana, to name a few. And celeb-
rities can't seem to get enough. Stylistas such
as Leighton Meester and Nicole Richie have
stayed faithful to the trend by adorning ruffles
to more than one event.
Almost every fashion show this season
hosted extravagant dresses, so wide and volu-


minous they spilled off the runway.
Of course, these dresses, or rather works
of art, are impractical for Gainesville's fash-
ion scene. But thanks to more pocket-friendly
brands like Pink at Victoria's Secret or Xhilara-
tion at Target, ruffles are moving from the run-
way into reality. The remarkable thing about
ruffles is that they will look elegant at every
end of the price spectrum. This fashion detail
of the season can be found in most stores with a
designer vibe at a reason-
Avenue able value.
Styles Flaunt this feminine
trend by picking up
one of these pieces. Have fun playing with
the volume of your outfit but don't overdo
it. Ruffle overdose and busy prints can add
unnecessary bulk that weighs down the airy
feel of the outfit. Stick to one statement piece
like a flower print, tiered tank top and pair it
with skinny jeans. Less risky rufflers can find a
solid-colored blouse with a ruffled accent just
enough to add a gentle touch of three-dimen-
sionality.
Whether you dress it up or dress
it down, when worn correctly, this
trend will leave your ruffles and minds
blowing in the summer breeze.


nuelKdl Jteler / lIIIn dLUOr Ldll
Students jackie Nelson, 19, and Kelly Nelson, 20, flaunt summer cheer with
tiered ruffles and playful patterns. The pair balance the tops with simple denim.

Gators fall to Razorbacks in SEC Tournament opener

0 UF WILL FACE OLE MISS TODAY IN THE
LOSER'S BRACKET.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org U N I E

HOOVER, Ala. Arkansas wasn't able to score its first
earned run until the ninth inning of Wednesday's game
against UF, but 7 unearned runs through the first eight
frames were enough to give the seventh-seeded Razorbacks
an 8-5 upset win over the second-seeded Gators in the first
round of the Southeastern Conference Tournament.
The Gators (38-19, 19-12 SEC) committed four errors
on the day, their highest total since logging six miscues in
the regular-season series finale with Arkansas (33-20, 15-15
SEC) on March 15.
Senior starter Stephen Locke (4-2, 4.55 ERA), who wasn't
on UF's opening-day roster because of a DUI charge that
was later dropped, fell victim to his team's defensive lapses,
lasting 3.2 innings while surrendering 6 runs on eight hits.
"We kind of knew the style of Stephen Locke," Arkansas
coach Dave Van Horn said. "He wasn't going to be able to
throw the ball by you, so our left handers can just stay on
the ball. He's a strike thrower so we just told them to be
aggressive."
The Razorbacks have now won five in a row against
Gators and nine of the last 10. The loss also runs UF coach
Kevin O'Sullivan's postseason record to 0-5 after the Gators
were swept out of the SEC Tournament and NCAA Region-
al last season.
In the postgame press conference, O'Sullivan said he is
more concerned about his team's defense than ending the Andrew Stanfill/ Alligator Staff
losing streak. UF freshman Preston Tucker had the Gators' lone hit with runners in scoring position in their 8-5 loss to Arkansas in
SEE BASEBALL, PAGE 23 Wednesday's opening round of the SEC Tournament in Hoover, Ala. Tucker was named SEC Co-Freshman of the Year.


UF not ready for Hoover's


pressure-packed play


HOOVER, Ala.
This is the big stage, and UF
didn't look ready for it.
Quite literally, the South-
eastern Conference Tournament is
a bigger stage than the Gators are
used to. That was clear in the first
inning, when first baseman Preston
Tucker hit a deep shot to right.
It would likely have cleared the
fence at the friendly confines of
McKethan Stadium, but instead, the
larger dimensions of Regions Park
swallowed it up for a flyout.
This is the postseason, and UF is
going to have to go a little beyond
the usual effort to get things done.
Rather than rolling seventh-seed-
ed Arkansas, the Gators sputtered
to an 8-5 loss. They caught most of
the breaks but made enough sloppy
mistakes to give back their good for-
tune.
The Razorbacks entered the


Same having
lost eight of
their previous
10, and they
were without
top hitter and
Mike McCall starting short-
stop Scott
McCall-in' It Lyons. UA's
Like I See It ace, Dallas
mmccall@a Iligator.org Keuchel, was
off his game,
walking a career-high six batters en
route to his second-shortest outing
of the year (3.2 innings).
Second-base umpire Ken Couch
even made a kick-save to keep an
Arkansas run off the books in the
first inning, as a grounder up the
middle struck his leg and the runner
who would've scored was forced to
remain at second base.
But none of that was enough be-

Familiar foe returns to town


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

Maybe history does repeat itself.
A week after hosing a regional includ-
ing Texas A&M, which knocked UF out of
the postseason the last two years, the No. 1
Gators (58-3) will welcome another familiar
opponent to Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium.
No. 14 California (38-18) will travel to
Gainesville to face UF in the NCAA Super Re-
gional for the second straight year. The Bears
swept their way through the Tallahassee Re-
gional to return to the Super Regionals.
The best-of-three series will begin Satur-
day night at 8 p.m. with the opening game
televised on ESPN. Game 2 will be played
Sunday at 6 p.m., and if necessary, the final
game is slated to start at 8 p.m. Sunday's ac-
tion will be broadcasted on ESPN2.
Last year, the Gators beat the Bears by


winning the first two games by identical 4-2
scores, with the final victory coming in nine
innings.
Unlike last season, however, UF is enter-
ing super regionals without a postseason
loss. This year's squad swept through the
regional, while the 2008 Gators dropped one

Three of four Gators fall in opening round of singles


By JOSEPH R. HOLZER
Alligator Writer

Hump day was not a good one for most of
the Gators tennis players.
In the first round of the NCAA singles
tournament in College Station, Texas, three
UF players lost in straight sets, but one held
firm to advance.
No. 33 Alex Lacroix was the first to fall,
losing to Pepperdine's Omar Altmann. The
No. 44 player beat the UF sophomore 6-3, 6-4.
Lacroix went into the tournament with a 20-7
spring record with nine of his wins coming
against ranked opponents.
Freshman Carlos Cueto dropped back-
to-back sets to No. 3 Bryan Koniecko. Cueto
faced a tough draw going against the highly


ranked Buckeye in a 6-3, 6-2 loss.
Koniecko's Ohio State was defeated Tues-
day in a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of USC in
the finals of the team tournament, so it was a
rebound match for the senior.
"The season is over with for the team, so
you have to focus on yourself for a little bit for
the one week that you are here and play your
own game," Koniecko said after his win.
On the women's side, No. 40 Anastasia
Revzina fell to California's Marina Cossou.
The No. 26-ranked sophomore, whose team
was swept in Tuesday's national champion-
ship 4-0 by Duke, defeated the Gators junior
6-2, 6-3.
No. 8 Marrit Boonstra also played a Gold-
en Bear in Bojana Bobusic. The junior leader
of the women's squad took the No. 32 player


deep into a third set before closing it out in a
tiebreaker 6-3, 3-6, 7-6.
In Thursday's second round, Boonstra
takes on Christy Striplin of Georgia Tech, who
defeated Northwestem's Sa-
S mantha Murray 6-4, 6-4.

DOUBLES TEAMS START
Women's PLAY: Though the teams'
Ten n is seasons are over and
singles didn't go quite their
way, the Gators are still
represented in the doubles draws beginning
today in College Station.
The No. 16 tandem of Antoine Benneteau
and Joey Burkhardt are scheduled to face Tex-
as A&M's Austin Krajicek and Conor Pollock,


who defeated the UF duo 8-4 en route to a 6-1
Gators victory in a heated battle on Jan. 31.
Boonstra and Jo Mather, who have played
as a unit since the seventh match of the season,
put together a 15-5 record and are ranked No.
18. The pair will play North Carolina's Sophie
Grabinski and Sanaz Marand. The Tar Heels
handed the Gators their first heartbreaking
loss of the season on Valentine's Day, but Gra-
biniski and Marand faced Boonstra and then-
partner Megan Alexander, who played her
second-to-last match of the season that day.
Revzina and Jessica Alexander will trade
volleys with Texas Christian's Macall Har-
kins and Anna Sydorska. The No. 18 pairing
of Revzina and Alexander has been solid all
season, finishing with a 19-4 record.

ter clinching the regional Sunday.
"Right now, I think we've done a
good job. We've played well. We've
done a good job rising to the chal-
lenge all season. Now, we've got an-
other challenge here at home."
The forward-looking approach
is evident in the Gators as much as
it is in their coach. After cruising
through regional play in three games
- the closest of which was a 7-1
victory against Texas A&M out-
fielder Kelsey Bruder said the team
wouldn't be focusing on its past suc-
cesses for long.
"We can savor it for the rest of the
day, but Tuesday, it's back to work
preparing for the super regionals,"
Bruder said Sunday. "We came out
strong, but we're just happy to move
on."
California swept the Tallahassee
Regional behind the arm of junior


Marissa Drewrey (24-10, 2.12 ERA),
who pitched all 21 innings for the
Bears. Drewrey took both losses
against UF in last year's super re-
gionals.

NELSON ONE OF THREE FINALISTS FOR
PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Senior pitcher
Stacey Nelson (37-3, 0.43) was named
one of top three finalists for the
Player of the Year Award presented
by the Amateur Softball Association
of America on Wednesday.
UF's ace joins Washington junior
pitcher Danielle Lawrie and Ari-
zona State senior outfielder Kaitlin
Cochran on the list, which has been
narrowed to three from a preseason
watch list of 50 players.
All three players are still active in
the postseason, as No. 3 Washington
and No. 10 Arizona State advanced
to super regionals play as well.
The winner will be announced on
May 26 in Oklahoma City prior to
the Women's College World Series.

UF senior Stacey Nelson was named one of three finalists for the Amateur Softball Association
of America's Player of the Year award. She currently leads the nation with a 0.43 ERA.


Tucker six away from UF's RBI record


BASEBALL, from page 21

"I don't look at it that way. We just
haven't played well," he said. "When you
make four errors, your chances of winning
aren't very good. The reason we were able
to get back in the game was because of the
nine walks."
UF was able to get runners on base via
the free pass but was held to four hits all
singles and missed multiple opportuni-
ties to drive in runners. In the ninth, sopho-
more Josh Adams came to the plate with the
bases loaded and one out before grounding
into a game-ending double play.
Arkansas reliever Mike Bolsinger was
credited by both coaches for holding UF to
one hit in 4.1 innings of work the only one
being a two-run single by Preston Tucker.
Tucker, the SEC Co-Freshman of the
Year, recorded the Gators' lone hit with run-
ners in scoring position, cutting the lead to
6-5. His three RBIs against Arkansas brings
his UF freshman season record to 74. He
needs six more to tie Ryan Shealy's school
record set in 2002.
The loss sets UF up with a matchup
against Ole Miss at 11 a.m. today in an
elimination game. The Gators dropped
their regular-season series to the Rebels 2-1


in Gainesville and is now 7-9 against SEC
West competition. The Gators boast a 12-3
record against SEC East teams.
If the Gators lose to the Rebels, they will
likely still host an NCAA Regional but will
be forced to go on the road should they ad-
vance to a super regional.
"We're looking to win this thing.
That's why we're here. We were
on the bus for eight hours."
Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach

O'Sullivan said he won't be happy with
settling for just one round in Gainesville.
"We're looking to win this thing. That's
why we're here," he said. "We were on the
bus for eight hours."
"I wouldn't expect us to come up here
for anything less than trying to win every
game we possibly can. We're playing for, in
my mind, probably a national seed."
National seeds are awarded to the top
eight teams in the country and guarantee
home NCAA Tournament games until the
College World Series in Omaha, Neb.
Freshman Anthony DeSclafani (5-3,
4.74 ERA) is scheduled to take the mound
against Ole Miss.

cause UF didn't show up.
The Gators made four errors and put
together just four hits, all singles, and they
didn't look primed to end UF's 18-year
conference tournament drought.
Tucker's 2-run single in the fourth was
the team's only hit with runners in scor-
ing position. There were needless bunt
attempts when good hitters should have
been swinging away.
There were plenty of pitches clocked in
the 65-mph range, and even though I'm a
little skeptical of the radar gun's accuracy,
that's not the kind of dominant pitching
you want on your side at this stage of the
season.
Now, I don't mean to dump all over
this team. The Gators have far surpassed
my expectations this year. They're going
to host an NCAA regional, and if they
can pull themselves together, beat No. 7
Mississippi on Thursday and win another
game or two, they're likely to earn a na-
tional seed and the right to host a super
regional as well.
But all that comes from UF's exem-


plary 38-18 regular-season record. The
postseason is different, and what I saw on
Wednesday didn't exactly inspire confi-
dence that this team will do something last
year's team couldn't win in the post-
season.
Coach Kevin O'Sullivan is only in his
second year, and it's crystal clear that he
has the program headed in the right di-
rection. But the Gators lack two things
necessary for tournament success: a deep,
experienced pitching staff and a few legit
sluggers.
UF will be relying on plenty of young
arms talented young arms with tons of
potential, but still young and unproven.
It seems like most teams are aware of
Tucker's power and try to avoid him, but
the Gators need Avery Barnes, Josh Ad-
ams, Brandon McArthur and Matt den
Dekker to start clicking at the same time.
If that happens, UF will be a force. A
loss Thursday wouldn't be enough to de-
clare the Gators' hopes of reaching the Col-
lege World Series dead, but they can't have
a repeat of Wednesday's performance.
One or two more of those outings
would mean the end of the line, no matter
how many breaks they catch.
