UF will lay off 58 people and close four
programs under its final budget cut plan,
which was released Friday.
The university will have to cut $42.2 mil-


lion from its budget in the next fiscal year,
which begins July 1. The plan, however, only
specifies how $30.6 million in cuts will be
made, leaving almost $12 million in cuts up in
the air.
Under the plan, nine faculty and 49 staff are
slated to lose their jobs and an additional 150
positions will be eliminated. The eliminated


positions include vacant positions from retire-
ments as well as positions held by temporary
employees whose

New juice bar offers
health food alternatives
If his 1991 Toyota hadn't bro-
ken down on Valentine's Day
en route to St. Augustine, Mark
Ramirez might have never discov-
ered a "for lease" sign in the win-
dow of a vacant Gainesville store.
Three months later, Ramirez
transformed the abandoned space
at 1109 W. University Ave. into
Genesis Heaven and Health, a
juice bar opening today at 10 a.m.
"This was a miracle for me to
find this place," said Ramirez,
founder and co-owner of the store.
"It was divine intervention."
Genesis Heaven and Health of-
fers smoothies, salads, soups, pa-
nini sandwiches and more.
"It's not health food," he said.
"It's a health food alternative."
Prices for smoothies range from
$5.47 to $6.97, salads are $8.47 and
panini sandwiches are $8.97.
Despite the current economy
and diminished summertime stu-
dent population, Ramirez believes
his store will prosper.
"I think a lot of college stu-
dents want to look and feel great,"
Ramirez said. "It's all about the
visuals."
Kelly Webster, a UF senior,
agreed with Ramirez.
"In summer, I think they have
an advantage because everybody
is trying to achieve that bikini
body," Webster said.
Genesis Heaven and Health
is certainly not the first store in
Gainesville to offer smoothies.
Mariam Rose, who has worked
at the nearby Smoothie Boost for
nine years, doesn't feel threatened
by the new store.
"Our location is better," Rose
said. "It doesn't matter though.
They are not competition."

Ordinance prompts booting increase in Midtown area


By ABBIE PARKER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Parking in Midtown may now
lead to a longer visit than motor-
ists intended.
Car boots have become a com-
mon alternative to towing at UF
Plaza, 1702 W. University Ave.,
but several store owners in the area
are unhappy about the change.
The Gainesville City ordinance
was amended to allow booting
about six weeks ago, which has
allowed the increase, according
to Cpl. Kevin Clinton, who heads
Gainesville Police Department's
towing department.


Booting began in the plaza
when Gainesville Real Estate Man-
agement Co., which manages the
property, contracted with Park-
ing Solutions towing company to
work the lot from 5 p.m. to 7 a.m.
However, several business
owners have complaints about the
practice.
"The principle of booting is
fine, but the practice isn't," said
Ellie Baumgartner, manager of
Copper Monkey Restaurant.
When a person is booted, they
won't call the company until they
are ready to leave, which contin-
ues to use up the space, she said.
Stan Forron, manager of Ulti-


mate Towing Co., who has been
towing for the UF Plaza parking
lot for 20 years, also disagrees
with booting.

"The principle of booting is
fine, but the practice isn't."
Ellie Baumgartner
Copper Monkey manager

"Booting is punitive and a de-
terrent, and in the end doesn't
solve the problem," Forron said.
Baumgartner believes the
signs in the parking lot should be
changed to reflect the new prac-
tice.


"If the sign says tow, then tow,
it says nothing about booting on
the signs," she said.
Confusion also occurs because
the signs read "Ultimate Towing
24/7." While Ultimate Towing
does work the lot from 9 a.m. to 5
p.m., Parking Solutions boots and
tows at night, Baumgartner said.
Cpl. Clinton will ask the two
companies to update the sign, he
said.
He has received calls complain-
ing about booting, but in every
case the towing company was in
the right, he said.
"I think (booting) is here to
stay," Cpl. Clinton said. Rob


Roche, owner of Pita Pit, Beer Pit
and Relish Restaurant, dislikes
customers blaming him for the
booting.
"We have no control over the
issue," Roche said.
Baumgartner feels that the
practice of booting is not focused
on helping the businesses in the
area, she said.
"Parking Solutions isn't in the
business of opening spaces, they
are in the business of making
money," she said.
Gainesville Real Estate Man-
agement Co. was not available for
comment, and Parking Solutions
declined to comment on record.


Animal shelters prepare for influx of summer kittens


* ADOPTION CAN REDUCE THE
NUMBER OF EUTHANIZED KITTENS.

By DANIELLE RUSHTON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville animal shelters are expected to
crawl with kittens in the coming months.
Kitten season peaks during late spring and
continues through the summer, said Eric Van
Ness, associate director of Alachua County
Humane Society.
With an estimated 36,000 stray cats in Ala-
chua County, local shelters will need the as-
sistance of volunteers and foster homes, Van
Ness said.


A foster home provides a kitten with a
temporary home until the kitten can be placed
with a permanent family, he said.
The time kittens are in foster care can vary,
but they are ready for adoption at eight weeks
old.
"At that point, we like to have them back in
the facility so they can be adopted as soon as
possible," Van Ness said.
Alachua County Humane Society provides
the food, supplies and vaccinations. All that is
required from the foster parent is a commit-
ment of time and care for the kitten.
"We have a generous community and con-
tribution levels are still high, but we always
have more kittens than foster homes," Van
Ness said.


As shelters reach capacity during kitten
season, some are left with no other option but
euthanasia.
Unlike other shelters in the area, foster
care is not an option for its animals at Alachua
County Animal Services.
Although the shelter's staff hasn't had to
euthanize its animals in several
Local months, if room runs short, they
News will be forced to euthanize older
cats to make room for the new
litters, he said.
According to Flagler, adoptions can help
reduce the number of cats being euthanized,
but it doesn't get to the root of the problem.
"The solution is to reduce the amount of
animals breeding by educating the communi-


ty on the importance of spaying or neutering
their pets," Flagler said.
Operation Catnip is a local nonprofit orga-
nization that aims to reduce cat the population
in Alachua County.
With the trap-neuter-return program, Op-
eration Catnip is able to capture all feral and
stray cats so they can be spayed or neutered
and returned to nature, said Shaye Olmstead,
program coordinator for Operation Catnip.
Operation Catnip has spayed and neutered
over 26,000 stray and feral cats in the last 10
years, Olmstead said.
Every month the organization holds a spay
and neuter clinic at the UF College of Veteri-
nary Medicine. The next clinic will be held on
June 14.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Release attacks Unite Party for Senate nominees


By SARA WATSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

After two tension-filled meet-
ings, the Student Government Sen-
ate's Orange and Blue Party issued
a press release accusing the Unite
Party of attempting to appoint un-
qualified senators to cabinet posi-
tions.
The Orange and Blue senators
opposed the confirmation of three
Unite Party appointees to the po-


sitions of Family Affairs Secretary,
IMAGE Executive Director and Le-
gal Affairs Secretary, according to
the release.
In last week's meeting, problems
arose when Sen. Ashton Charles re-
quested that SG appointments be
approved by block voting rather
than individual voting to save
time.
Because senators from the Or-
ange and Blue Party had problems
with the qualifications of the nomi-
nees, Sen. Jonathan Ossip motioned


for senators to vote individually.
After a long battle back and
forth between Os-
sip and Charles
over voting pro-
cedures, Ossip
allowed the sena-
tors to vote in
block form.
In the release,
Ossip Ossip, the Or-
ange and Blue
Party leader, said that the majority
parties "used underhanded parlia-


mentary tactics to push through the
appointments as quickly as possible
with little review or debate."
"These actions show the con-
tinued cronyism and disregard for
good governance that the Unite/
Gator Party has decided to continue
in the administration of President
Jordan Johnson," he said.
In last week's meeting, Orange
and Blue Party members expressed
frustration over the family and le-
gal affairs secretary nominees be-
cause neither appointment was ex-


perienced, Ossip said.
Sen. Alan Yanuck said last week
that he was concerned with the ap-
pointment of Ankur Lakhani to
represent IMAGE, an SG agency
that videotapes senate meetings.
Lakhani lost last semester's
video files, and a procedure to try
to retrieve the files will cost about
$750 with only a 60 percent chance
of success, Yanuck said.
Lakhani was eventually ap-
proved, as were the two other nom-
inees in question.


Two UF international students mugged, beaten Sunday


* GPD WILL INCREASE ITS PATROLS

By THOMAS STEWART

tstewart@alligator.org

Two UF international students reported
they were mugged and beaten by five to


six men early Sunday morning.
The mugging was the second that eve-
ning in the Midtown area.
The two students had been drinking
and were walking in the 1800 block of Uni-
versity Avenue after visiting bars, said Lt.
Keith Kameg, Gainesville Police Depart-
ment spokesman.
"They were kicked and punched and
one of the guys had a gold chain stolen,"


Kameg said.
Nothing else was reported stolen, he
said.
The incident happened
Local around 3 a.m. but was not
News reported until about 8 a.m.,
likely because the students
had been drinking, Kameg said.
One student is a 22-year-old Polish
man, and the age of the other male student


was not identified.
"Our criminals are looking for people
that are either intoxicated or alone," he
said.
As a result of the recent robberies, GPD
has increased its patrols in the area, he
said.
"Unfortunately, we have some people
in our community that they have now tak-
en to robbing people for sport," he said.

Event honors women pilots


* ABOUT 500 PEOPLE
ATTENDED THE SERVICE.

By JANA HALL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Amid the road trips, bar-
becues and department store
sales that marked Memorial
Day 2009, citizens paused at
Forest Meadows Cemetery
to honor the Women Airforce
Service Pilots.
The women, who refer to
themselves as WASP, spoke
about their experiences as
test pilots during World War
II and were presented with
certificates of appreciation.
Forest Meadows Cemetery
started hosting the service
in 2004, event coordinator
Amanda Garrigues said.
"The audience turnout
was amazing," she said, esti-
mating that about 500 people
attended the event.


Three members of WASP
attended the service with the
aid of Wings of Dreams Inc., a
nonprofit corporation focused
on aviation history, to pay
tribute to WASP members.
"Both of my brothers were
pilots," said Barry Vincent
Smith, a WASP member of
the sixth class of 1944.
Her brothers encouraged
her to learn to fly
Local after the military
News began accepting
women with 35
hours of flight training.
"When there were prob-
lems with planes like the
AT-10, mechanics would
fix them," Smith said. "The
women would fly and test
the planes to make sure they
were safe for the men to use
at war."
WASP flew every plane in
use at the time, including the
B-29, the model of the plane
that dropped the atomic


bomb on Hiroshima.
These women faced gen-
der discrimination and were
disbanded by the United
States military in late 1944,
said Susan King, co-founder
of Wings of Dreams Inc., who
presented the pilots' history
at Monday's service.
"We had very little,"
WASP member Helen Snapp
said. "We didn't even have
uniforms until soon before
we were disbanded. We wore
leather jackets with a WASP
patch sewn on."
The Forest Meadows Cem-
etery Memorial Day service
is one cherished by veterans
and non-veterans alike.
"We need to appreciate
our veterans as much as we
can," Virginia Fettes, a mem-
ber of the Daughters of the
American Revolution and
wife of a Korean War veteran.
"Services like this bring tears
to my eyes."


Veterans honor fallen


By SHELBY NEICHOY
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville residents strolled
down a mile-long stretch of tomb-
stones labeled with the names of
fallen soldiers on Monday, taking
in the Memorial Day display at
Westside Park.
A line of colorful banners la-
beled with the names of fallen
soldiers fluttered in the wind and
along Northwest Eighth Avenue.
"People want to ignore the war,"
said Scott Camil, member of Vet-
erans For Peace, "but this location
won't let them."
This is the third year the
Gainesville Chapter of Veterans For
Peace has put out the display.
The tombstones were placed to
show honor and appreciation to
American soldiers.
Joyce Thompson and her
friend, Rebecca Aldridge, felt over-


whelmed by the number of tomb-
stones.
"There are too many," Thomp-
son said, "but I am glad I came out
here to see it."
There are more than 4,900 names
on display, but the last four tomb-
stones remain nameless.
"People want to ignore the
war, but this location won't
let them."
Scott Camil
Veterans For Peace member

"Those are for soldiers who were
recently killed," Camil said, "and
we are withholding their names
until the families are notified."
For Thompson, Memorial Day is
about remembering.
"As long as people remember,"
Thompson said, "that is the impor-
tant part."

No end in sight

Chicago youth faced with

violence epidemic
Shockingly put on the back-burner by most of the na-
tional media, the rough and tumble streets of Chicago
continue to claim the lives of innocent city youth.
With 36 Chicago-area students killed in the current aca-
demic year, violence in the Windy City has reached epic
proportions with seemingly no end in sight.
While school remains in session for another week, Chi-
cago can already stake claim to the dubious distinction of
having the highest youth homicide rate in the entire coun-
try. As guns and drugs ravage the working class sections
of the city, the black community has suffered the greatest
casualty rate by a two to one margin compared to whites.
According to an article in The Washington Post, the mur-
der issue is only a portion of the problem as nonfatal inju-
ries occur nearly 100 times the homicide rate.
The details are gruesome.
Take Alex Arellano, for instance. From being beaten
with baseball bats to eventually being shot and burned,
the 15-year-old's body was discovered a few days after
disappearing from his family's home. Gang-related or not,
Arellano's life was cut short before he could even drive a
car, go to prom or graduate from high school.
Sure the prospects of hosting the 2016 Olympics appear
bright not to mention being home to President Barack
Obama, but the death of a child, one or 36, places an un-
avoidable blight on any city. Undeniably, efforts are being
made, but the troubling statistics continue to speak vol-
umes of an issue that isn't going away any time soon.




Automotive Absurdity


T oe word peculiar
comes to mind when
conjuring imagery of
the sights and sounds found
around the UF campus.
From live alligators to
the infamous creatures, err
preachers lurking in Turl-
ington Plaza, a walk around
the home of the Gator Na-
tion can prove to be a real
eye-opener.
The latest? An on-cam-
pus police chase involving
a stolen vehicle seemingly
straight out of "Grand Theft
Auto: Vice City."
According to an article
in The Gainesville Sun, the
chase came to fruition at
the Oaks Mall on Sunday
afternoon when Gainesville
Police Officer Jeff McAd-
ams noticed the suspect
behaving suspiciously in
the parking lot. Auston T.
Pearson, 19, drove off in a
white Dodge Charger and
exited the mall property
by turning onto Southwest
62nd Boulevard. Following
Pearson, McAdams learned


the vehicle was stolen by
running the license plate.
McAdams attempted to
pull over the individual.
And the pursuit began.
Realizing McAdams was
closing in on him, Pearson
ignored the officer's sirens
and attempted to thwart his
impending arrest by mak-
ing a left onto Southwest
20th Avenue and eventu-
ally Southwest 34th Street.
After striking a car and
making a series of U-turns
on campus, Pearson's not-
so-funny joy ride came to
an end when he returned to
Southwest 34th Street and
crashed his vehicle into an-
other car.
Arrested at the scene,
Pearson somehow managed
to avoid any bodily injury
in both of the accidents he
caused.
His criminal record,
however, is in shambles as
he faces a litany of charges
ranging from fleeing and
attempting to elude to driv-
ing without a valid license.

Opinions


Column

U.S. ideology does
ypically, I like the game of politics. I like the strategy
and the plotting. I like a good fight.
When writing this column, I've sometimes failed
to steer away from taking cheap shots at people whose
ideology I don't follow or whose sanctimonious political
remonstration I find funny. I am human, and I'm neither
the first nor the last.
There are some times of the year, though, that I just
can't bring myself to consider writing or even thinking of
anything that dishonors the quiet dignity that our soldiers,
current and past, fight to protect our national ideology and
existence. Memorial Day is one of these times.
Growing up in a seaside resort town, Memorial Day
signified the mourning of sleepy weeks lost to throngs
of summer tourists that make their first pilgrimage to the
snowy sands of Florida's Emerald Coast. Amid cheers from
children let out of elementary school and gleeful musings
of adults escaping the confines of gray cities, it's always
been hard for me to fully contemplate the sacrifices made
by thousands of men and women in our armed services.
But outside of the idyllic and worry-free world of pas-
tel-colored beach cottages, Memorial Day is a day where
outdoor barbecues offer a small retreat from the horrors of
war that haunt families.
In Washington, Memorial Day is a day of public mourn-
ing. President Barack Obama, like all of his recent prede-
cessors, lays a wreath in Arlington National Cemetery.
Songs are performed in the National Mall during Memo-
rial Day concerts as an attempt to lighten up the mood after
a mother of a fallen soldier tells the gathered crowd how
her son died in Iraq.
Again, I do like political fights and arguments; the
freedom to do so is what makes Memorial Day worth cel-

not include torture
ebrating. But lately, the arguments
between the upper echelons of the
Republican Party over whether
water-boarding is torture, and
even if it is, whether torture should
effectively be outlawed, has left a
Matthew Christ sullen mark on our reputation.
letters@alligator.org Our soldiers have not, do not,
and never should be instruments
that memorialize America's acceptance into the league of
ordinary nations. We do not torture not because we ask
others to follow international law, which itself forbids tor-
ture, and neither because we believe that by standing as a
civilized role model to the world we stand in favor to dis-
suade other nations from acting with such barbarity.
The United States of America does not torture because
it debases what our politicians label as our soldiers' sacri-
fice.
When we torture, when we hold prisoners indefinitely
and discriminately without due process on detention bases
like Guantanamo, and when we take shortcuts with our
Constitution and Bill of Rights, soldiers' lives are no longer
sacrificed; they are stolen. Stolen by the human slights of
judgment that are never corrected but turned into politi-
cal hot potatoes tossed between former unprincipled vice
presidents and sly political operatives, all looking for pub-
licity to sweeten their own book deals.
Their lives are stolen when we steal away from our na-
tion's principles. Their lives are stolen, and not sacrificed,
when we dishonor our soldiers' quiet bravery and im-
mense courage.

Letter to the Editor
Cash for Clunkers bill is a mistake
The United States Congress is
making a critical mistake by in-
troducing the so-called "cash for
clunkers" bill, which seeks to re-
strict the sale of two major replace-
ment parts: the engine and trans-
mission.
By continuing to be unsympa-
thetic to professional automotive
recyclers, this environmentally
"green" industry will likely experi-
ence financial hardship as well as


the end-user, the customer, who
needs to replace an engine or trans-
mission.
Overall, automotive recycling
serves as a $22 billion industry in
the United States and employs over
103,000 people at more than 8,267
businesses around the country. By
any estimation, these figures reflect
a significant piece of our country's
economic pie.
An estimated 86 percent of
automotive recycling companies


feature full service and employ 10
or fewer people, with an annual
payroll estimated to be about $3.3
billion.
Professional automotive recy-
clers adhere to stringent environ-
mental regulation -- including the
removal and reuse of engine oil,
transmission fluid, gas and mer-
cury-containing light switches and
Anti-lock Break System assemblies.
The direct cost to process a salvage
vehicle ranges across the country


from $400 to $600.
Not allowing automotive recy-
clers to sell the engine and drive
train components will result in de-
creased inventory and a net sales
revenue loss of 50-60 percent per
vehicle. A loss at such a rate would
be nothing short of crippling for
professional automotive recyclers
everywhere.
At the expense of helping one
industry, Congress should, at the
very least, consider allowing pro-


fessional automotive recyclers the
ability to reuse quality Original
Equipment Manufacturer automo-
tive components as replacement
parts for consumers.
The automotive recycling in-
dustry is made up of professionals
who are dedicated to protecting
our environment and providing
low-cost alternative replacement
parts for the American public.

Gallow humor holds significant place in America's


An employee is leisurely stocking
shelves in the supermarket one day
when a man with a gun busts in. The
criminal shoots the stock boy and then flees
the scene. Another employee rushes to the
aid of our hero, eager to console him. The
stock boy looks up at his friend and meekly
says, "cleanup in aisle 7."
This joke, related to me by a friend named
Phil Correa, is admittedly fairly corny. It does
however function as a wonderful example of
what is, in my opinion, one of the highest and
most noble forms of humor: gallows humor.
The fact that humans handle stress in myr-
iad ways has been well-documented by psy-
chologists for years. Situations of great stress,
trauma or even life-threatening danger have
occurred in the lives of all of us, and each per-
son faces these moments in different ways.
Gallows humor is one of these ways and hap-


pens to be my personal favorite.
Part of what makes gallows humor so
important is that it's demonstrative of one of
the higher traits of an otherwise lowly devel-
oped society. Gallows humor almost always
deals with an impending death-a moment
of grave seriousness. The most cavalier and
charming individuals agree that life is just a
ride.
There are numerous instructive examples
of gallows humor sprinkled throughout his-
tory. Whether it were uttered by heroes or
scoundrels, these lines represent a temporary
transcendence into that state wherein man
can laugh even at death.
Benjamin Franklin, one of the founders of
this Republic, found himself in a room with
extremely argumentative delegates immedi-
ately after the signing of the Declaration of
Independence. Aware of the danger hang-


ing over their heads,
thanks to what they
had just done, Franklin
said to the assembled
crowd, "We must all
hang together or sure-
Eric Chianese ly we shall all hang
letters@alligator.org separately." Despite
the word play, I like
this one. The charge of
high treason lay ahead of them, yet Benjamin
Franklin was still able to crack foxy, as the
saying goes.
Tallulah Bankhead, famous actress of
Hollywood's golden days, is somewhat no-
torious in the cannon of cinema history for
the drawn-out decline of her career and her
substance addictions. You may know her
from old "I Love Lucy" reruns where she
played herself. Bankhead, whose last words


history


are reputed to be a demand for more codeine
and bourbon, had a definitively cavalier at-
titude regarding her decline. When asked in
her waning days if she was in fact Tallulah
Bankhead, she would reply, "No, darling,
I'm what's left of her."
These are just two examples of a common
form of humor. We've all encountered gal-
lows humor before, and often, we've let it
slip by without truly appreciating the forces
at work. During times when darkness de-
scends upon a person-when a storm rages
ahead-and that person greets it with a flip-
pant remark, then he or she is at his or her
finest. It is this determination to get on with
the fun of living optimistically, even fool-
ishly, even against all better judgment, which
makes a life worth living.

Twitter or 'the next big thing' may not wow users overnight


Like you, I'm pretty hip to
what's happening in the
world.
I surf the Web, watch television
and recently sold my soul to Steve
Jobs and bought an iPod. My Fa-
cebook page is a thriving center of
ideas and progress (I recently took a
quiz on there and found out that if I
was a drink, I would be a martini).
However, despite being relatively
connected to the latest trends, I just
do not understand the appeal of
Twitter.
Twitter.com, the darling of me-
dia personalities, Hollywood actors,
sports stars and thousands of others,
sprang from nowhere and went on


to dominate the Intemet and popu-
lar culture like a virus.
According to a March Nielsen.
com blog, Twitter.com grew by 1382
percent in the month of February
2009 alone.
For people who have stronger
wills than a dieter at CiCi's Pizza and
shunned any mention of Twitter, it
is a social networking site. Founded
in 2006, Twitter allows users to sign
up and "tweet" small 140-charac-
ter posts about anything going on
in their lives. Usually these posts
are incredibly mundane but sev-
eral media outlets, such as CNN or
ESPN, and public figures, like Ash-
ton Kutcher or even U.S. Congress


members,
Joshua Lee have used
Speaking Out the site and
broadcasted
its "cultural
significance" to the world.
A few months ago, I decided to
set up an account, hoping to under-
stand the draw. After one tweet of
my own and a useless search to find
anyone of interest, I resided to mere-
ly following the always entertaining
Shaquille O'Neal. Call me old fash-
ioned (is Facebook already old fash-
ioned?), but I'am not sold on it.
Now don't get me wrong, there
are several positive aspects of Twit-
ter. It has brought regular Internet


users closer to the media and public
figures while adding another option
for the instantaneous transmission
of information.
For many, Twitter is great. It does
not require the upkeep of a Facebook
or MySpace account, and is more hip
and high tech than shouting from a
top of a soapbox or writing opinion
columns in a local newspaper. How-
ever, Twitter has simplified social
networking to the lowest denomina-
tor and, by doing so, made it much
less engaging and expressive.
The presence of so many impos-
ters and fake profiles on the twitter
site has made searching for poten-
tially interesting people almost use-


less. Twitter has also caused an infor-
mation overload and truly redefined
media and mass information, often
for the worse. The ability of thou-
sands of people to post little details
about their daily lives devalues the
overall meaning of social network-
ing and can get really boring.
Perhaps my biggest gripe with
the Web site is its undue popularity
and the way in which the media has
sold it as the new big thing. Howev-
er, in the face of Twitter's growing
cultural importance, maybe I should
just end my boycott. I'll think about
it and tweet you later.

STUDENT LIFE


Despite rain, UF theater students perform in festival


By STEVE JOHNSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. "The
show must go on" was the theme of
last week's Florida's First Coast Arts
Festival as UF's School of Theatre
and Dance put on 11 shows in seven
days, rain or shine.
Throughout the week, UF pro-
duced a variety of performances
at the St. Augustine Amphitheater
ranging from the comical acts of
"The Complete Works of William
Shakespeare (Abridged)," to the
serious tones of "Pride and Preju-
dice."
"The weather has been a night-
mare," said Kevin Marshall, pro-
ducer of the festival. "It has rained
every day since the 17th."
Performances were held despite
the rain, and although covered seat-
ing kept audience members dry,
ticket sales were still effected.
"They were disappointing,"
Marshall said. "When The Weather
Channel broadcasts from down-
town St. Augustine on Thursday,
you know you're in trouble."
The city had 14.2 inches of rain-
fall during the week of the festival,
which is well above the 3.11-inch
average for May, according to The
Weather Channel's Web site.
Marshall said the festival cost be-
tween $200,000 and $250,000.


"All the productions have been
marvelously received," Marshall
said. "I think it has really helped the
visibility for The School of Theatre
and Dance."
Along with multiple performanc-
es, the UF School of Art and Art
History held an outdoor exhibition
at the amphitheater featuring eight
sculptures from current UF students
and alumni.
"When The Weather
Channel broadcasts from
downtown St. Augustine on
Thursday, you know you're
in trouble."
Kevin Marshall
festival producer


The amphitheater chose to keep
the sculptures on display after the
festival ended, said Anthony Cas-
tronovo, adjunct assistant professor
of sculpture at UF.
The amphitheater was built in
1965 to commemorate the 400th an-
niversary of St. Augustine, which is
the nation's oldest European settle-
ment, according to the Florida's First
Coast Arts Festival Web site.
The 4,000-seat venue is nearly 10
times as large as the Constans The-
ater at UF, which seats 415.
"I enjoy it because it challenges

phitheatre.


me," said Nichole Hamilton, an ac-
tor in "Pride and Prejudice." "It is a
leap for an actor. You have to reach
every member in the audience."


This is the first year UF has pro-
duced the festival, and it is planning
to continue with dates set for May
15-24 of next year.


"We have every intention of
coming back," Marshall said. "This
will become an annual festival here
on the First Coast."


Machen: UF will create a new list of budget cut possibilities for next year


CUTS, from page 1
Natural Resources Larry Arrington, Senior Vice
President for Health Affairs Doug Barrett and
interim Senior Vice President for Administration
Brian Beach decided would have "the least
impact on the overall mission of the university"
if they were cut. Machen said the number of lay-
offs may be fewer by the time the new budget is
implemented.
Though the Board of Trustees, UF's highest
governing body, will make the final vote on the
plan today, Machen said he can continue to con-
sider alternate plans, as long as they are for the
same dollar amount, for up to 30 days after the
vote.
Faced with the reality of layoffs, Machen said
some administrators may change their minds.
"It's one thing to send me a list of possibili-
ties," Machen said of the budget cut proposals
submitted by each unit at UF, "then when I call
'em up and say, 'We're gonna do this,' they say,
'Wait a minute, maybe I'll do something else.'"
The same thing happened last year, he said.
UF's budget plan last year called for 14 fac-
ulty and 118 staff layoffs. In the end, only eight
faculty and 66 staff were laid off. Three faculty
were later reinstated and two others were laid off
in their place.
The reduction in layoffs was also influenced
by unexpected retirements, new funding for
some positions and the hiring of some soon-to-
be-laid-off employees in other areas at UF.
In the plan released Friday, UF announced it
will cut $30.6 million primarily by laying people
off, eliminating positions and switching pro-
grams from state to non-state funding.
Most of the remaining $11.6 million in cuts
have yet to be determined and will be covered
by stimulus money UF is receiving $41 mil-
lion next year in the meantime.
However, he said about $2 million will likely
be cut by diverting money that UF's National
Merit Scholars program was scheduled to con-
tribute to the Grad Alumni program. As for the
rest of the cuts, he said administrators are still
analyzing various possibilities and determining


how much they could save.
For example, he said UF is considering plac-
ing a cap on the amount of money employees
can collect from unused sick leave or vacation
time when they leave UF and also creating an
early retirement program, which he said should
be available by July 1.
But it's hard to know how much these mea-
sures will save, he said. For example, he said it
is impossible to know how many people will
sign up for the early retirement program, which
would provide incentives for employees to retire
early.
How UF will cut the remaining $3.6 million
is even less clear. One proposal calls for consoli-
dating some of the university's communication
offices.
UF In addition to these
Administration cuts, UF might have to
take even more from its
budget during the middle of the year to pay for
raises for some employees. UF will likely spend
about $2.3 million, Machen said, to cover merit-
based and promotion-related raises for faculty,
which have not been factored into the budget
yet. UF is not currently planning on offering
across-the-board raises for faculty and staff.
There is also the possibility of another mid-
year budget cut from the Florida Legislature,
which is a big reason Machen has decided not
to allocate all of UF's stimulus money. Only $24
million of the $41 million has been designated.
Another reason for holding off on using stimulus
money, Machen has said, is that the federal gov-
ernment hasn't explained yet how the stimulus
money must be spent.
Machen said when it's time to decide how
to cut the $11.6 million or more that still has to
come out of UF's budget, he will present the op-
tions to the university community for feedback
before making any decisions.
"We will start the process over again," he
said.
This will likely happen around the middle of
the next academic year, he said.
He also emphasized that UF will create a new
list of possibilities for the next round of cuts in-


stead of using the budget cut proposals submit-
ted to UF in April.
"The list that was used to produce these cuts
is now off the table," he said.
For now, though, the spotlight is on the
Board of Trustees. They will vote on the budget
in a telephone conference call today at 3:30 p.m.
Members of the public who wish to listen can do
so at 215C Emerson Alumni Hall.
Machen said the trustees are not likely to
make any changes to the plan.
"My feedback from the trustees is that they're
comfortable with what we've done," he said.
For the most part, he said, the trustees have
let administrators determine how to make cuts.
"They have pretty much stayed out of the
process until just about two weeks ago," he said
Friday.
"They were very much involved in the lob-
bying of the (state) Legislature, so they knew ex-
actly how bad it was, but they decided to let us
decide," he said.
The trustees told Machen at their annual Lake
Wauburg retreat in February that they wanted
UF to shift its mission to focus more on graduate
education and research. Machen said the restruc-
turing envisioned by the board didn't occur.
"I think we pretty much preserved the uni-
versity while shrinking it down to get this mon-
ey out," he said.
He said it wasn't clear back in February how
big UF's budget cut would be, which led some
trustees to prepare for a worst-case scenario.
"In some people's minds, I think, was the
idea of whole colleges being removed and all
that," he said. "Certainly we didn't do anything
like that."
Machen said he thinks the impact of the cuts
on UF could've been much worse.
"I think we're intact," he said. "I think most
of our colleges are gonna be okay. Our student
body will not see their programs change."
He said he worries about two things, though-
howUF will cut the remaining $11.6 million from
its budget and about the slipping economy.
"My worry is... will there be another chapter
to this thing?" he said.


Four programs will be closed:
* The educational psychology
program in the College of
Education.
The instructional scuba pro-
gram in the College of Health
and Human Performance.
The Documentary Film Insti-
tute in the College of Journalism
and Communications.
The rehabilitation counseling
division within the college of Be-
havior Science and Community
Health in the College of Public
Health and Health Professions.

Two other programs will be
shifted to non-state funds and
there will be three mergers of
programs:
The operative dentistry and
dental biomaterials programs in
the College of Dentistry.
The department of Communi-
cation Science and Disorders in
the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences with the department
of communicative disorders in
the College of Public Health and
Health Professions.
The Mental Health Center
with the Counseling Center in
Student Affairs.

UF SOFTBALL

Gators sweep Super Regional to return to WCWS


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

As Stacey Nelson walked
from Katie Seashole Pressly Sta-
dium to postgame interviews,
the senior ace asked coach Tim
Walton a simple question.
"Stacey gave me a hug and
said, 'Coach, four years ago
did you know that we'd be go-
ing back to our second College
World Series?"' Walton said. "I
told her, 'Four years ago, I didn't
even know you were going to be
this good and thanks for being
that good."'
Nelson (39-3, 0.41 ERA) was
as good as she has ever been
Sunday, leading UF to its second
straight Women's College World
Series appearance following
two wins over California in the
NCAA Super Regionals.
UF will play Arizona in the
first round of the WCWS on
Thursday night at 9 in Oklaho-
ma City, Okla.
The No. 1 Gators (60-3) only
put up four runs on seven hits in
their doubleheader sweep of the
No. 14 Bears (38-20), but Nelson


allowed no runs in her 12 innings
of work.
The right-hander pitched all
seven innings of UF's 2-0 victory
in Game 1 and worked five in-
nings of relief in her team's 2-1,
Super Regional-clinching win.
Nelson struck out 19 batters
between the two games, walked
none and only gave up six hits.
Walton started sophomore
Stephanie Brombacher in Game
2, but he went back to his ace to
protect the team's 2-1 lead.
Nelson came through even
after pitching a complete game
earlier in the day, throwing five
scoreless innings and starting a
key, momentum-killing double
play in the sixth after the Bears
put together two consecutive
hits.
"All the great ones have that
ability. She just doesn't buckle
under pressure," Walton said.
"In relief today, she was the best
she's looked all year long."
After the game, Nelson said
she had "a little flash" before
turning the critical double play
and she just had a feeling she

straight trip to the Women's College World Series by defeating California in a doubleheader Sunday.


Calathes makes the right call


Touch, Nick Calathes.
Everyone was awaiting the UF
guard's decision between an NBA
career and another year with the Gators,
but he had other plans.
On Saturday, several news outlets re-
ported that Calathes signed with Greek
powerhouse Panathinaikos, which has
won two of the last three Euroleague ti-
tles.
The Orlando Sentinel reported the con-
tract would be worth $1.1 million per year
and include a home, car and tax credits,
making the total package comparable to
what a late lottery pick in the NBA Draft
could expect to be paid.
It's too early to tell how well this deci-
sion will work out in the long term for Ca-
lathes, but in the short term, I love it.
He was predicted by many to be draft-
ed late in the first round, but it's not hard
to imagine him slipping into the second.


S I'm sure Calathes
doesn't agree with
me, but I didn't see
him having a huge
career in the NBA.

last summer.
He'll be closer to his brother, Pat, who
also plays in Greece, and he's likely to be-
come something of a celebrity while living
in Athens.
Most importantly, he should have
more early success than he would on our

UF earns national seed


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

HOOVER, Ala. In order to win the
Southeastern Conference Tournament, UF
had to prove it was capable of beating ev-
ery team in the eight-team field.
After Friday's 10-7 loss to Arkansas
knocked the second-seeded Gators out of
the tournament, UF is unable to make such
a claim.
The Razorbacks were the only SEC team
to sweep the Gators during the regular sea-
son, and UF's 19-8 record against the rest
of the conference seemed to matter little as
the squads met twice last week in Hoover
- Arkansas beat UF 8-5 in the tournament
opener Wednesday.
Despite bowing out of the double-elimi-
nation bracket in only three games, the No.
11 Gators (39-20) found out Monday that
they earned a national seed in the NCAA
Tournament, which means they will play
at home for a Regional and a Super Re-
gional should they advance.
UF was given the eighth and final na-


tional seed and will host Bethune-Cook-
man, Jacksonville and Miami in an NCAA
Regional. The Gators will take on the Wild-
cats at 6:30 on Friday night.
After Friday's loss to the Razorbacks,
UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan and third base-
man Brandon McArthur talked about refo-
cusing and correcting defensive mistakes
before hosting the Regional.
"We came here to win,
not to go 1-2," McArthur
said. "We're not very ex-
cited about this weekend,
Baseball but we have to quickly put
it behind us because now
it's the big tournament."
Luckily for UF, the Razorbacks won't be in
Gainesville this weekend.
Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn pen-
ciled in seven freshmen including start-
ing pitcher Drew Smyly on the lineup
card Friday, and his seventh-seeded Ra-
zorbacks defeated the Gators for the 10th
time in their last 11 meetings, including
each of the last six.
"They certainly got our number,"

Softball enjoyable in its own right


Adam Carolla, whose podcast I listen to on
a near daily basis, recently put a common
occurrence perfectly into words.
He described opening up the refrigerator and
discovering an unmarked jug containing a bever-
age presumed to be milk. You take the "milk" jug
out of the fridge and take a swig expecting an ex-
plosion of dairy goodness inside of your mouth.
As soon as the liquid hits your lips, it becomes
apparent that the original assumption was in-
correct. Involuntarily, your face scrunches up as
what was thought to be milk makes its way down
your throat.
After the initial shock of the mystery beverage
passes, you take another sip to confirm what you
already suspected: The mystery jug contained or-
ange juice instead.
The adverse reaction to some freshly squeezed
O.J. came because you were expecting dairy and
got citrus instead. Once you understood what
you were actually drinking, the orange juice was
just as enjoyable.
Everyone has endured this at one time or an-
other, and I was forced to experience this phe-
nomenon with the sport of softball.
The Gators are heading back to Oklahoma City
for the Women's College World Series for the sec-
ond year in a row, which means I will be covering
the tournament for the second year in a row.
When I started covering the UF softball team
last spring, I was expecting milk.
Like many Americans, baseball is my favorite
sport. I played it for over a decade growing up


and I follow the MLB
with an unhealthy
fervor. The mistake I
made that first day in
the Pressly Stadium
press box was assum-
ing I would be taking
Kyle Maistri a swig of a sport that
Kyle Points was supposed to taste
kmaistri@alligator.org like baseball.
In fact, I disliked
softball because it was
never enough like baseball and so many of its ele-
ments bothered me the high fiving and mound
meetings after every out, throwing the ball to the
first baseman after a strikeout, the miniature field,
the pitchers' rubber arms and most of all, slap hit-
ting.
But after a season of watching more than 75
games, I can tell you that softball can be just as
refreshing as baseball.
The pitching is far superior to that of college
baseball, the action is infinitely faster-paced, the
games between two good teams have a much
higher likelihood of being close, the women are
better than you think and slap hitting is actually
an effective strategy against dominant pitchers
who strike nearly everyone out.
Starting Thursday, you will have a chance to
indulge in some of the freshest orange juice you
will ever drink in your life.
Just don't make the mistake of assuming it's
supposed to taste like milk.


Offense sputters in victories


SOFT, from page 17


would get a groundball hit at chest-
level, make the throw to Corrie
Brooks at third, who would then
complete the play with a throw to
first. It unfolded exactly as Nelson's
vision predicted it would.
"It's tough to get to this point,
and we know it's tough," Nelson
said. "To finally be in the College
World Series, it's a great feeling of
accomplishment. But at the same
time, it's (a feeling of) excitement be-
cause we have another tournament
to play."
The team celebrated its victory on
the field after the final out of Game
2, dead-set on ringing in this year's
WCWS berth the right way.
"We'd kind of been planning
what we were going to do because
last year we just kind of jumped up
and down and didn't really do any-
thing," second baseman Aja Paculba
said. "Then this year we were just
like, 'We're going all out and doing
this, we're doing that.' I think we
had fun this way."
Add sadness to the list of emo-
tions the Gators felt Sunday, as the
team's seven seniors played their fi-
nal game in Pressly Stadium.
With two outs in the bottom of
the seventh inning, catcher Kristina
Hilberth went to the circle to tell


Nelson that they were about to play
their last out in their home stadium.
"The last pitch, I started crying,"
Hilberth said. "I was like, 'I need to
catch this pitch first before I start
crying.' Thank goodness it was a
changeup."
But the Gators won't take too
long to soak in the victories Nel-
son said she'd focus on enjoying the
wins until 5 p.m. Sunday (two hours
after the game's finish) as the team
has yet to accomplish the goal it set
before the season
even started: win-
ning a national
championship.
To improve on
last year's semifi-
nals loss, UF will
need its batters
Nelson to come through
more than they did Sunday. The
Gators went a combined 7 for 42
against the Bears, and the California
pitchers retired UF in order in nine
of 13 innings.
Paculba had all three of the
Gators' RBIs on the day, including
a home run on the 14th pitch of the
team's first at-bat in Game 1.
"As the at-bat was going on lon-
ger, I was just like, 'I am not getting
out now after all this,'" Paculba said.
"When I hit it, I knew I hit it hard but
I didn't think it was going over."

UF MEN'S GOLF


Seniors get one last shot at NCAA Championship
By ANTHONY CHIANG mightbe feeling even more pressure than them Although Alexander can't guarantee the they finished in first place. However, th
Alligator Writer as they realize they have a shrinking window impact his coaching has had on the team, one team's worst finish came in the fall, when U


Despite the presence of a talented group of
seniors gunning for their first national cham-
pionship in their final season, UF's junior golf-
ers might be feeling the most pressure heading
into the final tournament of the season.
The No. 6 UF men's golf team will send
out the same five golfers that won the NCAA
Southwest Regional to represent the Gators in
the NCAA Championships starting today in
Toledo, Ohio.
Seniors Billy Horschel, Toby Ragland, Will
Strickler and juniors Tyson Alexander and
Tim McKenney will attempt to win UF's fifth
men's golf national title. While this will mark
the final event the seniors play in, the juniors


of opportunity.
"I think the juniors feel a big sense of ur-
gency because they know they've got three
pretty good players in Horschel, Ragland and
Strickler that are not going to be part of this
team next year," Alexander said.
After the Gators' first toumamentwin away
from home since 2006 at the NCAA Southwest
Regional on May 14-16, the team seems to be
playing its best at the perfect time.
From the outside, it appears as if coaching
has a lot to do with that, but coach Buddy Al-
exander made it clear that this is one aspect of
team management that is beyond his control.
"I don't really know how to make a team or
player peak at the right time," he said.


thing is for certain: The confidence the team
has gained from finishing in first place at the
regional tournament will
prove to be invaluable this
week.
"I know that winning
will increase the team's
confidence, so I think this
will have a pretty big effect
on us," Alexander said.
Alexander The team has taken part
Alexaner in an event on the Toledo
golf course, where the national championship
will be played, for the past four seasons.
The Gators' best finish in the tournament,
the Inverness Invitational, was in 2005, when


e
F


finished in ninth place.
Nonetheless, UF hopes its familiarity with
the course will work to its advantage in its at-
tempt to win its first NCAA Championship
since 2001.
"We've got a little more knowledge on
this course than you might see from the other
teams," Alexander said.
From the way the Gators handled the re-
gional round, Alexander is encouraged by his
team's postseason mind-set.
"In a regional, there is pressure because it's
a possible end to your season, and when you
have the guts to come through in that situa-
tion, you have to feel pretty good about your-
self," he said.


Four keys to a more successful postseason run for UF baseball


HOOVER, Ala.
Getting sent home is a lot easier to
take when you know you'll be stay-
ing there for an NCAA regional.
Despite its 1-2 performance at the South-
eastern Conference Tournament, No. 11
UF (39-20) earned the No. 8 national seed
and will host a Regional next weekend
and a Super Regional should the Gators
advance.
They have the potential to make it to the
College World Series, but if they don't make
some improvements, they'll be watching
rather than hosting a Super Regional.
"We can't come out as flat as we did to-
day because these games are so valuable,"
third baseman Brandon McArthur said.
"Our goal is to get to Omaha, and we can't
sit back and let it slip by. We can't give the
other teams outs as the games go on. Two
more losses and our season is over."
To avoid those two losses, here are a
few areas UF needs to straighten out:


PITCHING DEPTH: Stephen Locke has
become the team's ace, and while he's
experienced and cool under fire, he isn't
the kind of dominant pitcher the Gators
would like to have leading the way. He
relies a lot on curves and changeups, and
behind him, there are a lot of freshmen.
Anthony DeSclafani and Nick Maronde
are the current No. 2 and 3 starters, but
neither of them go very deep into games.
That has to change for UF to avoid wear-
ing out the bullpen, and Patrick Keating
needs to keep the momentum he created
in two solid relief outings in Hoover.

SPREAD THE POWER AROUND: The
Gators need to have powerful hits
throughout the lineup, and as it stands,
there's potential for that now. The real
problem is that the best hitters on the
team are seldom clicking at the same time.
The postseasons of any sport are dictated
by who gets hot at the right time. Avery


S Barnes, Jonathan
Pigott and Preston
Tucker are all
on fire, and UF
needs Josh Adams,
Brandon McAr-
Mike McCall thur, Matt den
McCall-in' It Dekker and Buddy
Like I See It Munroe to step
mmccall@alligator.org up and be more
consistent in the
coming weeks. If
that happens, the Gators will have a formi-
dable offense. If not, they'll sputter.

LIMIT THE ERRORS: As UF found out
during the SEC Tournament, making
errors is a quick way to kill momentum.
The Gators lead the SEC in errors, and the
six they committed in two games against
Arkansas played a huge role in their de-
mise. A lot of this falls on shortstop Mike
Mooney, who made a few great plays in


the tournament, but the routine plays and
throws need to be automatic this time of
year. They weren't in Hoover.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE BREAKS:
Sometimes the ball bounces your way,
sometimes it doesn't. In Hoover, the ball
mostly bounced UF's way, and the Gators
didn't capitalize. Arkansas was without its
best hitter, an umpire was hit with what
would have been an RBI single for the
Razorbacks on Wednesday to save a run,
and the Razorbacks shuffled their lineup
to a freshman-heavy set for Friday's game.
A perfect example of how things went
was when McArthur hit a deep fly to right
on Friday, the right fielder flat-out missed
it, and McArthur was thrown out at third
after he tried to stretch the double, against
third base coach Craig Bell's call. When
things go their way in the NCAA Tourna-
ment, the Gators need to make the best
of it.


Gators knocked out of SEC


Tournament after sloppy play leads to two losses against Razorbacks


BASE, from page 17

O'Sullivan said. "I thought we
were in a good frame of mind today
though, I really did."
The teams committed a com-
bined four errors, which led to 3
unearned runs for the Gators and 5
for the Razorbacks. Smyly's 3.2 in-
nings pitched were the most logged
by a hurler for either side, and 10
batters reached base via a walk or
hit by pitch.
Though the game was sloppy
on both sides, Arkansas freshman
Zack Cox proved to be the differ-
ence, both in the batter's box and
on the mound.
After the Razorbacks fell behind
3-2 heading into the bottom of the
fourth inning, Cox hit the top of the
scoreboard with a 2-run moon shot
off UF reliever Greg Larson, spark-
ing a 5-run inning.
"When he hammered that ball, I
think there were a lot of guys say-
ing, 'Wow,'" Van Horn said. "If
you hit one out of this ballpark, you
hit it, and if you hit one off the top
of the scoreboard, then you really
hit it."
The Gators found themselves
down 8-3 heading into the seventh


inning before they began to chip
away at the deficit. With two outs,
senior Avery Barnes chopped a
ball to the shortstop, and an error
by freshman Tim Carver allowed
McArthur and Matt den Dekker to
score for UF.
The next batter was junior Jona-
than Pigott, who crushed his third
home run of the tournament to
left-center field. Pigott, who hit two
homers in the regular season and
two in each of his first two seasons,
tied the record set by Chuck Haz-
zard in 1996 for most longballs by a
Gator in the SEC Tournament.
"(Friday), I think we swung
the bats the best we have all year
against them," McArthur said. "We
thought we had the momentum,
but we couldn't hold on to it."
In the bottom half of the inning,
the Razorbacks pushed across two
insurance runs, including an RBI
single from Cox in his final at-bat of
the day.
When it came time to protect the
lead in the eighth, the third base-
man moved to the mound. Cox,
who pitched just 16 innings prior
to this appearance, finished out the
game without allowing a base run-
ner.


UF outfielder Jonathan Pigott tied the school record for most home runs in the SEC Tournament with
three in three games. The junior had only hit two homers during the regular season.

No. 8 Boonstra falls in


NCAA Quarterfinals


* NO DOUBLES TEAM MADE IT
PAST THE SECOND ROUND.

By JOSEPH R. HOLZER
Alligator Writer

No. 8 Marrit Boonstra made it all
the way to the quarterfinals of the
NCAA singles bracket before losing.
Her championship run ended at the
hands of Miami's Laura Vallverdu.
After dropping the first set, the junior
bounced back, pushing the 24th-ranked
player to a third set by taking a second-
set tiebreaker. Vallverdu won the final
stanza, closing the book on Boonstra's
season with a 6-1, 6-7 (9), 6-3 win.
Boonstra started her run to the
quarterfinals with a shaky 6-3, 3-6, 7-6
(5) first-round win against California's


Bojana Bobusic on Wednesday. On
Thursday, Boonstra defeated Georgia
Tech's Christy Striplin 6-1, 6-4. She
continued her streak Friday by beating
Stanford's No. 7 Hilary Barte 7-5, 6-1.
"I had to figure out her game, and
after that it went pretty easy," Boonstra
said of Stanford's Barte. "She is a great
player, but she is half of the size of me,
so I was trying to get the balls up high-
er than her, and it worked."
Boonstra and Jo Mather advanced
to the second round of the doubles
bracket before losing to the Arizona
State duo of Micaela Hein and Kelcy
McKenna 6-4, 1-6, 6-3.
The No. 25 tandem of Jessica Alex-
ander and Anastasia Revzina, along
with the No. 16 men's doubles team
of Antoine Benneteau and Joey Bur-
khardt, suffered first-round defeats.

side of the pond.
Now, it probably won't be
easy for Calathes to come back
to the NBA after a few years
overseas.
According to reports,
Panathinaikos wants Calathes
to officially withdraw from
the NBA Draft, but his agent
may try to keep his name in
the hat.
The one thing he needs
to avoid is giving pro teams
the impression that he's run-
ning from the challenge of the
NBA. That could be tough to
overcome.
I don't know what Nick's
life goals are, but if he just
wants to play the sport he
loves, win games and make a
bunch of money doing it, he
made a great decision.
European basketball is on
the rise, and Calathes is the
latest American import to
hit the scene. The league can
only get better from here, and
there's nothing but room for


Calathes to grow.
On the flip side, there is a
clear loser in the situation: UF.
More specifically, Billy Dono-
van.
Things haven't gone so
well since the back-to-back
national titles.
The Gators missed the
tournament two years in a
row, lost Marreese Speights
to the NBA and Jai Lucas to a
transfer.
Alex Tyus threatened to
transfer a few weeks ago, Al-
lan Chaney went through with
it, recruits have withdrawn
verbal commitments, and
now the team's best player is
skipping off to Europe.
UF is looking more and
more like a program in disar-
ray.
The message I'm get-
ting from all this is that these
players aren't happy under
Donovan. Many of them came
here with the notion that titles
would keep raining down on
the O'Dome, but as the strug-
gles have hit, Donovan and
his players don't seem to be


connecting that well.
Calathes was always
viewed as Donovan's Gold-
en Boy, but it's obvious that
wasn't true. Calathes went
against his coach's wishes by
playing in Greece last sum-
mer, and now he is basically
saying the Gators are pretty
far down his list of priorities.
There's absolutely nothing
wrong with that, but it doesn't
reflect well on the status of the
program.
If this string of events hap-
pened to a coach who wasn't
coming off an incredible few
seasons, there would be talk
of job security. Billy D doesn't
(at least he shouldn't) have
to worry about that now, but
athletics director Jeremy Foley
needs to make it clear that this
can't keep up.
Foley needs to back Dono-
van in public but tell him to
regain control of the team.
If he can't do that in the next
three years and the Gators
keep struggling on the court,
then it might be time for some
re-evaluating.
