UF football starting cornerback Jano-
ris Jenkins was arrested Saturday morn-
ing after a fight that resulted in Jenkins


being Tasered.
His arrest marked
the 24th arrest of a

At about 2 a.m.,
Gainesville Police Department officer


Cory Martin saw Jenkins, 20, fighting
with about five others at 100 S. Main St.
According to the GPD arrest report,
Martin walked up to the group and told
them to stop fighting.
When nobody obeyed, Martin drew
his Taser gun and asked them again to
stop fighting.
Jenkins then punched someone in the

New campus garage will feature 950 parking spaces


By LINDSEY DURANT
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's new $17 million parking
complex will open its gates Aug. 24
to UF students, faculty and staff.
While the 950-space garage will


be available to all commuting Gators,
it should mostly relieve parking for
those who use the Health Science
Center, the College of Veterinary
Medicine and the Office of Infor-
mation Technology, which are all
nearby.


"I'm not sure if the parking prob- The Southwest Parking Garage

Because there are only 24,000
spaces, only about two-thirds of the

Of these spaces, 19,821 are acces-

Gov. Charlie Crist signs Fla. tuition increase
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Florida's
state universities will be able to increase
tuition rates up to 15 percent annually until
they reach the national average under a new
law Gov. Charlie Crist signed Monday.
Crist, university officials and the Florida
Student Association supported the tuition
bill, saying rates that now are among the na-
tion's lowest must go up to improve quality,
help pay for need-based scholarships and
stop a brain drain of faculty to other states


that pay better. The 15 percent maximum in-
cludes across-the-board tuition increases or-
dered by the Legislature. This year, lawmak-
ers have approved an 8 percent statewide
increase. Each of the 11 public universities
now can add a differential of 7 percent.
The 8 percent increase will boost tuition
for a student taking the average 30 credit
hours in a year by $197 for a total of $2,658.
At 15 percent, the increase would be $369 for
a $2,830 total.

Cops mob



Marston to



find thief

By ANDREW STANFILL
Alligator Staff Writer
astanfill@alligator.org

Six University police cars sat outside Mar-
ston Science Library and at least six officers
searched the area for a suspected criminal
Monday afternoon.
The crime: book theft.
Maria Hicks, a food and resource econom-
ics undergraduate, left her table on the fourth
floor to answer her cell phone.
When she returned, a man at her table was
zipping his backpack up, but she thought noth-
ing of it, she said.
Then she noticed her $200 "Data Analysis"
book was missing.
"Don't leave your stuff; take it with
you if you go somewhere."
Pam Bonner
UPD spokesperson

She searched for the man with the back-
pack, who she described as wearing an orange
UF Gators shirt.
"I tried to chase him," she said. "He disap-
peared so fast."
UPD responded by searching the area for
people matching the thief's description. Of-
ficers searched the bags of several people and
questioned them about the crime.
Hicks had borrowed the textbook from a
friend and will have to pay her back, she said.
Pam Bonner, a UPD spokeswoman, offered
a moral to the story.
"Don't leave your stuff; take it with you if
you go somewhere," she said.

Traveling queers perform skits, demonstrate unity


By JESSICA ETTER
Alligator Writer

A sweaty crowd of about 35 people
linked arms, grabbed one another's butts
and sang "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"
in the Civic Media Center on Sunday night
as part of a traveling "gay vaudeville"
group's performance.
The CMC hosted FINGERS Queer Caba-
ret, which includes skits performed by a
group of five people, including Edie Fake,
Dewayne Slightweight, Silky Shoemaker,
Owen Brightman and Scott Tankersley.
"The idea of fingers is a separate entity,"
Shoemaker said, "but the thing with fingers
is that they have to come together and work


together to form a hand."
Shoemaker added that the group's ap-
pearance in Gainesville marked their ninth
performance.
"We are ending our tour at a queer mu-
sical festival in about two weeks," Shoe-
maker said.
FINGERS preformed four skits over two
hours, each written and performed by a
single member, Shoemaker said.
Performances included props such as a
giant fabric sphincter that an actor interact-
ed with to demonstrate ideas of equality.
"The shit ain't gonna stop," the actor
said.
An electric guitarist sang a 45-minute
song on the same issue, and the following


"A lot of people here support gay,
lesbian, transgender causes. We
try to be part of it and support
everyone who does it."
Lee Savage
Gainesville resident


acts incorporated a stilt walker, tap danc-
ing and onion chopping punctuated by a
speech on philosophy.
The CMC requested a $5 donation from
attendees at the door.
All donations went to FINGERS to help
pay for miscellaneous things such as food
and mechanical problems that may arise


with their vegetable-oil-fueled 1974 bus,
Shoemaker said.
Taylor and Lee Savage, who have lived
in Gainesville for 24 years, put all of the
cash they had with them into the donation
box, they said.
The Savages were unable to recall how
much the donation was, but said they were
searching for the box to put in an additional
$20 that they realized they had.
Gainesville community's non-judgmen-
tal views are to credit for performances like
this being held in the city, they said.
"A lot of people here support gay, les-
bian, transgender causes," Lee Savage said.
"We try to be part of it and support every-
one who does it."


Hurricane season begins, nine to 14 storms predicted


* ONE TO THREE STORMS
ARE FORECASTED TO BE
MAJOR HURRICANES.

By SHEMUEL ARRINDEL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Meteorologists will keep an
eye out for Ana, Bill, Claudette,
Danny and Erika this year.
The National Oceanic and At-
mospheric Administration pre-
dicted that this year's hurricane


season will bring four to seven
hurricanes and nine to 14 tropical
storms in 2009. Hurricane season
began Monday.
One to three storms are pre-
dicted to reach category 3 or
higher. Category 3 winds range
from 111 to 113 mph.
Residents of Florida and other
hurricane-prone areas are urged
to be prepared for the season,
said Kenneth Allen, emergency
management coordinator in the
Environmental Health and Safety


department.
"NOAA's predictions are on
a macro level," Allen said, "so
no matter what the forecasts are,
there's no way to predict whether
our area is going to
State impacted or not. So
News we have to prepare
every year as if we
are going to be impacted."
Allen recommends that resi-
dents create an evacuation plan
and keep three days worth of
food and water.


On-campus residents should
follow the advice of the housing
staff, and off-campus residents
should follow advice from local
officials, Allen said.
Instructions may include a
boil-water advisory or a curfew.
In the event of a hurricane, the
city's fire departments, police,
work crews and administrators
will be placed on standby as part
of the city's Emergency Opera-
tion Plan, said Bob Woods, City
of Gainesville spokesman.


Woods recommends keeping
a shortwave radio and batter-
ies, prescription medication, a
first aid kit and important docu-
ments.
To help residents prepare,
the city also created a Web site,
which can be found at the city of
Gainesville home page. Links on
the Web site direct users to emer-
gency contact information for
people with children and pets.
"The time to prepare is now,"
Woods said.

GAINESVILLE CITY COMMISSION

Residents discuss city issues at town hall meeting


By ROBERTA 0. ROBERTS
Alligator Contributing Writer

The City of Gainesville opened
the floor for citizens to voice their
concerns and criticism Monday
night at the Doyle Connor Build-
ing, 1911 SW 34th St.
About 24 Gainesville residents
made their voices heard during
the two-hour meeting. Citizens
discussed a wide range of issues,
including land use, transporta-
tion, community and quality of
life.
The town hall meeting was the
third in a series of four.
Gabriel Hillel, 74, and Victor
Vega, 15, were residents among
the two dozen who spoke about
these issues.
Vega said UF students are tak-
ing many of the jobs that would
otherwise be available for young-
er or older residents.
"I respect UF students," Vega
said. "They run things, but in a
way that kind of blows away the
other population."
Vega said that local residents
have "every right to this place as
everyone else does."
Some of his improvements for
the city included more events and
activities for 14- to 17-year-olds,
fewer trees, slightly bigger hous-
es, wider sidewalks, more public
parking and more employment
for middle-aged people.


Shemuel Arrindell/ Alligator
Gabriel Hillel, 74, and Victor Vega, 15, right, speak on issues relating to the quality of life of Gainesville
residents at a town hall meeting on Monday.


Vega discussed the lack of
parking for residents not affiliat-
ed with the university living near
campus.
"One time my mom had to
park two miles away to find pub-
lic parking around UF," Vega
said.
Hillel, a former civil rights
journalist, focused more on the


racial boundaries still present in
Gainesville.
"There's a lack of communica-
tion throughout the city," Hillel
said, "and it gets exacerbated be-
tween the races, so no one cares
what is happening on the other
side of town."
"And when police officers
throw eggs in Porters Neigh-


borhood, there's a problem,"
Hillel said, referencing an inci-
dent last November where three
Gainesville Police Department of-
ficers rode through the neighbor-
hood with the intent of harassing
prostitutes and drug dealers.
Hillel told the mayor and com-
missioners that the new GPD po-
lice chief should be black and that


the new Office of Equal Opportu-
nity director should not be black,
to encourage diversity.
The Gainesville community
needs to talk about race, among
other things, he said
"(The city is) trying to avoid
hard problems," he said. "And
I'm not talking about potholes."
Hillel, a resident of Gainesville
for 17 years, also said the city is
too decentralized and too spread
out, and because of this, no one
knows what activities are going
on.
He believes the city should cre-
ate a phone number people can
call to find out what is going on in
the city that day.
"If I like to ride bikes then I
would press 7 to hear about plac-
es to ride a bike," he said as an
example.
He said that many people do
not know that the Hippodrome
State Theatre shows movies, or
that Gainesville is the first "fly
city," refering to the butterfly gar-
den on campus.
Overall, Hillel said he believes
awareness and communication is
key.
"There should be a resident
tour bus to take them around
town, so they can see where they
live."
The next town hall meeting will
be June 15 at the United Church of
Gainesville, 1624 NW 5th Ave.

Doctor rekindles his love for


performance through jazz band


* THE GAINESVILLE
COMMUNITY JAZZ BAND
PERFORMED FRIDAY.

By STEVE JOHNSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
It had been 20 years since John
Leibach had picked up his tenor
saxophone.
Leibach, a gastroenterologist
with the Digestive Disease Asso-
ciation, didn't know if he would
ever play again after his communi-
ty jazz band broke up in the 1980s.
Inthefallof2008,oneofLeibach's
patients, a fellow musician named
Frank Young, called him about an
opening in the Gainesville Com-
munity Jazz Band.
What seemed like an endless
silence for Leibach's tenor saxo-
phone quickly turned into a scram-
ble to relearn the instrument he
had played since he was in sixth
grade.
"Can we practice once?"
Leibach said to Young. "I don't re-
member having to struggle to see
the music."
Two days later, Leibach and the
Gainesville Community Jazz Band
performed at The Village, a retire-
ment community in northwest
Gainesville.
The story of John Leibach and
Frank Young is one of many that
can be learned from the short his-


tory of the Gainesville Commu-
nity Jazz Band, which began in the
summer of 2007.
More than 20 years had passed
since Gainesville had a community
jazz band until Marco Thomas, a
music teacher at Joseph Williams
Elementary School, gathered a few
band directors from local schools
to play.
"It's been a lot of fun.
People are dancing and
having a wonderful time
together."
David Ballard
Division for Cultural Affairs
director of events

"I really wanted to play jazz,"
Thomas said. "So we just kind of
started building it."
Beginning with a handful of
musicians and fliers posted in local
music stores, Thomas' jazz band
grew to 17 members with widely
different backgrounds and profes-
sions.
Friday night, the band per-
formed for the "Free Fridays"
concert series at the Bo Diddley
Community Plaza in downtown
Gainesville.
As the sun set, and the band
began playing, people spread blan-
kets and unpacked folding chairs.
During the performance, children


of all ages danced to the sounds of
Count Basie and Glenn Miller.
"It's been a lot of fun," said Da-
vid Ballard, director of events for
the Division for Cultural Affairs.
"People are dancing and having a
wonderful time together."
The sounds of downtown
Gainesville occasionally made
their way into the score. Ambu-
lance sirens, or solos, as Thomas
called them, crescendoed and de-
crescendoed during the band's
performance of hits from the 1930s
and the 1940s.
Leibach and Young both played
in the original community jazz
band in 1972 and have remained
friends.
"There was always an under-
standing that if anything came
along, to let him know because
he loves to play," Young said of
Leibach. "And by golly, he came
out and did it."
Leibach, lead tenor saxophone,
tapped his left foot and counted
silently to himself between musi-
cal phrases as Young swayed from
side to side with the rest of the
trumpet line.
Both musicians said they will
continue to play with the commu-
nity jazz band and have no plans of
stopping anytime soon.
"We're playing for the love of
playing," Young said. "If we get
paid, OK. If we don't, it doesn't
bother me."


John Leibach plays a solo during the Gainesville Community Jazz Band's
performance at the "Free Fridays" concert series on Friday.

Not the Answer

Controversial abortion

doctor killed by radical
For Dr. George Tiller, even the sanctity of his house of
worship could not protect him from those who vehe-
mently opposed his life's work.
The abortion doctor met his untimely death on Sunday
at the hands of Scott Roeder who fired a single bullet
from his handgun at Tiller while the doctor stood in the
foyer of his church. Known as one of three physicians in
the country who performed late-term abortions, Tiller
sparked a string of violence from radicals hell-bent on
closing down his Wichita clinic. From the 1986 bombing
of his practice to being shot in each of his arms in 1993,
Tiller refused to let such deterrents impede his ability to
provide medical care to pregnant women and teens from
across the country.
Simply put, Tiller's dedication to his work trumped any
lingering fears for his own safety.
Call Tiller a ruthless killer or a medical wunderkind, his
murder represents nothing more than a logically flawed
statement on the part of a community that champions life.
As eloquently stated by President Barack Obama, "How-
ever profound our differences as Americans over difficult
issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by hei-
nous acts of violence."
While the legality of Tiller's medical practices have
been called into question, the act of taking the man's life
surely was not the answer.
Just beyond the issue of America's flailing economy lies
the legality of abortion already the next hot political

Chalk it up to jealousy
or downright lunacy,
but much fuss has been
made over President Barack
Obama's weekend jaunt to
the Big Apple with his wife.
And what exactly did they
do, you ask?
Rub elbows with Jay-Z
and Derek Jeter at the 40/40
Club? Dine like royalty on
champagne and caviar at the
Russian Tea Room? Maybe
satiate a craving for beef with
steaks as big as your face at
Peter Luger's in Brooklyn?
Hardly.
The First Couple feasted
on locally grown cuisine at
Blue Hill a pricey but hard-
ly jaw-dropping restaurant
located in the West Village.
Hell, Michelle even decided
to order not one, but two mar-
tinis. After dinner, Barack and
Michelle headed uptown to
catch the play "Joe Turner's
Come and Gone," which
looks at black America in the


early 1900s.
Let's put aside the reces-
sion or the fact that General
Motors just filed for bank-
ruptcy for a moment and real-
ize Obama wasn't trying to do
anything more than be a good
husband.
Yes Hillary, they do exist.
With the campaign a dis-
tant memory and the transi-
tion to the not-always-so-
friendly-confines of 1600
Pennsylvania Ave. complete,
Obama utilized an event-free
weekend to take Michelle on
a much overdue date. Simply
put, a fancy but not over-the-
top dinner and evening at the
theater won't exactly make or
break America's current fi-
nancial situation. Americans
shouldn't concern themselves
over who footed the bill for
the Obamas' date but rather
celebrate a president who
places a premium on keeping
the spark in his marriage alive
and well.

Eco-awareness hitting the mainstream


In these heady times of global awareness and eco-
knowledge, it seems the bad eco-news comes at you
from every angle. Nobody is safe from the onslaught
of negative press if even Google is under eco-scrutiny. A
researcher this year claimed that a single Google search
is worse for the environment than driving a car, mostly
because of the way Google's "cloud computing" uses clus-
ters of servers together at once to achieve superfast results
for every single search.
Just think of all the extra angst this revelation brought
to the skinny-jeans, hipster, vegan crowd. Just when they
thought those years of riding tiny bikes and eating Tofur-
key shrank their carbon footprint, all those Google search-
es for crappy bands and gluten-free recipes exploded their
houses of smug.
However, the news isn't all bad on the environmental
front. Car companies are scrambling to actually use the
green technology they have been ignoring and burying for
the last three decades. The most exciting eco-technology,
though, is still in the developmental phase.
A car company in China is reportedly working on
groundbreaking neurotechnology that can tap into potent
human emotions to power an automobile. Using a special-
ly-made steering wheel and sensors placed on the tempo-
ral lobes, Mirage Motors is taking the lead in a carbon-free
driving experience.
Engineers for Mirage, working closely with the Chi-
nese government, tailored a car for suburban American
markets that runs entirely on white guilt. This car, already
in postproduction, can reach speeds of 75 miles per hour
solely by tapping into the deep reservoir of guilt white
Americans feel for the way slavery and discrimination
have shaped our country.


Since the election of President Ba-
rack Obama and the recent selection
of a Latina to the Supreme Court,
Mirage has decided that plans to
roll the car out in America will be
delayed until 2011 at the earliest. A
Tommy Maple smaller Mirage Chimera coupe run-
letters@alligator.org ning on colonial guilt will hit major
European markets in the fall.
Mirage Motors, in the Maxx Hy-
perbole series, also developed a line of SUVs and heavy-
duty work trucks powered by righteous anger. These ve-
hicles, specially designed to only play talk radio at a high
volume with no option to turn it off or lower the volume,
have reached speeds of 95 miles per hour (on a closed
track, with Hannitized drivers). GM, the newest toy of the
American taxpayer, is understandably excited about this
new technology.
Many environmentalists complain about ethanol, our
heavily-subsidized and homegrown biofuel that gets no
respect outside the American heartland. I bet you kooky
environmentalists hate on high fructose corn syrup, too.
Listen it's made from corn. Scoreboard.
Ostensibly, a large majority of these celebrated eco-
measures are an expensive ruse foisted upon a panicked
populace. However, far from painting a picture of hope-
lessness, one should find solace in the myriad ways Amer-
ica and the world are working toward a more sustain-
able future. Either way, if I hear somebody use the word
"green" as a verb one more time, I swear I will stab them
with an organic, recycled prison shank.

U.S. justice
ately, and between reading
entries on the Rotten Library, I
have turned my attention to the
criminal justice system.
I am certainly no criminologist; re-
grettably I haven't had the time to get
a degree from the University of Phoe-
nix, but in my amateur opinion, this
system requires a significant over-
haul. Its standards are far too draco-
nian, where it does not serve the pub-
lic interest, and far too lenient, where
harshness should be warranted.
First a disclaimer of sorts: this dis-
cussion is meant to be suggestive and
not exhaustive. If it inspires some-
one to consider writing a more fully
formed argument in favor of any of
the tenets I put forth here, then I will
consider my job done. Further, the
harsher measures I suggest are meant
only for a context where one can trust
the legal system implicitly and, as Sa-
mantha Black Crow told us, "no one
but a moron would ever trust the le-
gal system."
The first of the two variations of
failure in our current system of en-
forced morality is the brutality with
which it disposes of what amount,
ultimately, to petty crimes. Vari-
ous "three-strikes laws" illustrate
the problems herein and give rise to
some rather absurd examples.
In California, there are mandatory
sentences if convicted of an offense
three times. Shoplifting falls under


system needs overhaul


this category,
and there is
at least one
instance there
where, as a
result, some-
Eric Chianese one who shop-
lifted a set
letters@alligator.org of golf clubs
of golf clubs
was handed
25 years. Ad-
ditionally, under the three-strikes
systems, numerous strikes can be
awarded for the same incidence of
deviation, resulting in one crime that
would ordinarily be handled reason-
ably, instead resulting in concurrent
sentences that can total 50 years or
more.
This leads to an overcrowded pris-
on system that loses whatever hope
it once had of being rehabilitative.
Before I am accused of weeping for
the damned, however, let me take a
more pragmatic approach. Though I
am unsure of the exact figure, the an-
nual cost of sustaining an inmate in
Florida must run the taxpayers some-
where in the area of tens of thousands
of dollars.
In Virginia, the cost per prisoner
was a startling $24,332 for 2008. At
prices like this, can we afford draco-
nian standards?
Then again, we come to the other
horn of the dilemma. Many times, the
legal system deals far too leniently


with crimes that deserve something
more serious. An example would be
child molestation, where sentences as
light as five years are not completely
unheard of.
My suggestion here is a bit harsh-
er. In an ideal society, wherein lighter
crimes go lightly punished, I would
suggest a penalty of execution for
first-degree (that is, premeditated)
murderers, rapists and child molest-
ers, assuming their guilt could be
positively established and there were
no mitigating mental circumstances,
to borrow from the language of lega-
lese. These crimes are certainly unfor-
givable and also have high recidivism
rates.
Think of it not as revenge, but
rather as a step to protect society. The
death penalty was ruled out 5-4 by the
Supreme Court in cases of child mo-
lestation as recently as 2008, though,
so my ideal society will have to wait
until the court reconsiders.
The flaws in our American justice
system are plenty, and I have here
given only a sampling.
The ill-using of those convicted
of relatively minor offenses, and the
charity shown to those with a predi-
lection for the worst types of offenses
are indicative of a backward national
psyche. A determined reappraisal is
warranted.

Letter to the Editor
Guest columnist exhibits clear lack of maturity
In Thursday's guest column, Matthew Meltzer's use
of trite warnings and sweeping generalizations served to
demonstrate his estimation that if he is not ready for mar-
riage in his 20s, no one else can be.
Not married himself and relying on the dependable
source of "or so I am told," Meltzer gave his argument lit-
tle credence. His glamorization of drunken escapades as
the superior alternative to marriage reveals more about
Meltzer's own maturity (or lack thereof) and values than
that of most 20-somethings. The institution of marriage is
certainly worthy of examination and critique.
Yet Meltzer merely resorts to a repetition of unorigi-
nal exaggerations, undermining what could have been
a thoughtful analysis of an establishment rife with both
tradition and controversy.
As with most things in life, all relationships are in-
dividual and cannot be categorized with such blanket
statements. Signing a marriage certificate in one's 20s
does not guarantee a happily ever-after, nor does it "only
lead to bad things" as Meltzer puts it.
Sadly, Meltzer simply propagated cliched gender
stereotypes with his tales of wives who are "ALWAYS
THERE."
As Meltzer seems to be under the unfortunate as-
sumption that women want to trap men into a marriage
in order to secure a partner for viewing "Grey's Anato-
my" and dominating in Pictionary, I suggest he take his
own advice and do some thorough self-examination be-
fore ever considering marriage, even past his 20s.

Fall decal sales will help pay for $20.7M garage


PARKING, from page 1


Ironwood


seeks input


from locals

By DEREK GILLIAM
Alligator Contributing Writer

The city is offering a little practice on the
house to Gainesville's experienced golfers.
Ironwood Golf Course is giving away a
free pail of golf balls to people who partici-
pate in a new online survey, according to
a release.
Amid controversy and disagreement
between city commissioners, the city of
Gainesville recently committed at least $1
million to improving the course.
"This survey has been designed
by the National Golf Foundation to
help us identify areas that could
use improvement."
Bob Woods
Gainesville city spokesman

The survey requires knowledge of the
course and asks questions about how often
participants golf, quality of the course and
includes open-ended questions inviting
criticism.
"This survey has been designed by the
National Golf Foundation to help us iden-
tify areas that could use improvement,"
said Bob Woods, a Gainesville city spokes-
man.
Once thesurveyis completed,participants
will receive a coupon redeemable through
Dec. 31 at Ironwood Golf Course located at
2100 NE 39th Ave.
Golfers are encouraged to bring their
own clubs, but the course can provide driv-
ers, according to Steve Phillips, director of
Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs.

gainesville.org.


space.
Along with the increase in parking
spaces, there will be a 10 percent hike in
decal costs.
According to UF's Transportation and
Parking Services Web site, a semester stu-
dent commuter decal currently costs $72.
An annual decal is $134.
On UF Transportation and
Campus Parking Services does not
receive funding from the
university or state and relies solely on de-
cal sales.
Because the university does not restrict
the number of decals sold, fall sales' profit
will likely cover the $20.7 million total
price tag of the project.
"We are not in the business of turning


a profit," Fox said. "We are in the business
of breaking even."
The proximity of the garage to Ben Hill
Griffin Stadium rouses another demand
problem.
Although students and employees
can gain weekday access to the garage,
the transportation office has yet to decide
whether the access will include the week-
ends during football season or be restrict-
ed to season ticketholders, Fox said.
The parking complex called for a
12-month construction phase, including
six months in design, and is set to be com-
pleted on schedule.
"The project has been nothing but suc-
cessful," he said. "It is a true win-win situ-
ation, especially for students."

head. Martin responded by Tasering Jenkins.
According to the report, after he was Tasered, Jenkins
got up and ran away despite commands from Martin to
stop.
Jenkins was caught and arrested about one and a half
blocks away, the report stated.
Jenkins told police that he was fighting because he
thought members of the group were trying to steal his
chain.
UF team spokesman Steve McClain said the coaching
staff is aware of the incident and is await-
ing the results of the investigation.
Jenkins was released from jail on $2,000
bond Sunday.
As a freshman, Jenkins started 12 games
during the 2008 football season.
Previous to Jenkins' arrest, two UF
Johnson football players have been arrested in the
2009 off-season.
In February, offensive lineman Carl Johnson was arrest-
ed after his ex-girlfriend accused him of violating a sexual
violence restraining order by "date raping" her three times
between September and November.
Walk-on running back Marquis Hannah was arrested in
April and charged with unarmed burglary of an occupied
dwelling and a first-degree misdemeanor for battery after
forcing his way into an apartment and punching a man in
the face.


sible to students, faulty and staff, while
the remainder is reserved for visitor, de-
livery, service and emergency vehicles.
"We will always have a supply and
demand challenge," Fox said. "But the
garage will certainly help."
The Southwest Parking Garage Com-
plex will include green, orange, blue, car-
pool and gated zones. It is not yet deter-
mined how many spaces will be reserved
for each, and parking will not be available
to students who live on campus.
The complex will also serve as the new
home of UF's Transportation and Parking
Services, with 9,000 square feet of office

UF RESEARCH

New therapy may treat sugar illness


By SARA WATSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
For Dulce, 14 months without cornstarch is a very good
thing.
As a Maltese puppy, Dulce suffers from glycogen stor-
age disease type 1A, a disease found in both dogs and hu-
mans that prevents the body from converting glycogen to
glucose, the essential fuel to keep bodies in motion.
The current treatment for the disease includes frequent-
ly administering corn starch in order to keep blood sugar in
check. Before 1971, the disease was considered fatal.
The UF Glycogen Storage Disease Program is hoping to
transform current treatment methods after its recent and
successful attempt at gene therapy in dogs.
Maltese dogs, the only known animal to suffer from the
naturally occurring disease, are more prone to the disease
because they have been inbred for years, said Dr. David
Weinstein, the director of the program.
Though Maltese are no strangers to international dog
shows like Westminster Kennel Club, puppies with the dis-
ease are not among the prize-winning show dogs.
"Without treatment, the dogs with the disease could die
within an hour of birth," Weinstein said.
Gene therapy has helped Maltese puppies live longer by
removing the original genetic material from a liver-and-kid-
ney-attacking virus and inserting a desired gene sequence.
The altered virus is injected into the body, where it attacks
the liver and inserts the desired gene, Weinstein said.
Prior to gene therapy, no Maltese with this disease had
survived for more than 28 days.
Dulce is now 20 months old and has been off all treat-
ment for 18 months since her last gene therapy session in
January 2008, he said.


While helping puppies is a worthy cause, Weinstein said
the ultimate goal is to find a viable, effective treatment for
humans who suffer from the disease.
Of the 12 types of glycogen storage disease, type 1A is
the most severe and causes low blood sugar, or hypogly-
cemia.
Even with cornstarch, patients with type 1A can suffer
from liver cancer, severe kidney disease, osteoporosis and
other complications, Weinstein said.
"Children and adults with glycogen storage disease live
by the clock," he said.
Precise amounts of cornstarch are
consumed about every four hours, and a
delayed dose will result in severe hypo-
glycemia, which can lead to seizures or
even death, he said.
"One missed or delayed dose can be
disastrous, and this causes tremendous
Weinstein anxiety for patients and families," Wein-
stein said.
Because safe gene therapy in humans is a long way off,
Weinstein said, UF researchers are working on an extended-
release cornstarch that could be available as soon as 2010.
"(The cornstarch) may finally allow people with (the dis-
ease) to sleep through the night," he said.
Weinstein said UF has been the exclusive site for these
studies since the program moved from a branch of Harvard
University to UF in 2005.
Despite groundbreaking work and more than 300 pa-
tients from 18 countries, budget cuts are threatening to end
the program and any hopes for new treatments, according
to Weinstein.
"We must be careful not to destroy great programs here
at UF in an effort to save a little money," he said.

UF held scoreless by


Lawrie in Game 1


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

OKLAHOMA CITY Three big
plays and one dominant pitcher put
the UF softball team one loss away
from falling short of its season-long
goal of a national championship.
Led by a two-hit performance by
Danielle Lawrie, third-seeded Wash-
ington (50-12) handed No. 1 UF (63-4)
its first loss of the postseason, an 8-0
defeat in the first game of the Wom-
en's College World Series champion-
ship series.
"Obviously that's not the way you
draw it up," UF coach Tim Walton
said. "Coming out in a national-cham-
pionship series and getting run-ruled,
it should have been a run-rule."
The Gators had not given up eight
or more runs since their 10-2 loss to
UCLA on March 3, 2007.
Lawrie (41-8, 0.97 ERA) was domi-
nant in the circle for Washington, leav-
ing UF's hitters looking and swinging
at pitch after pitch as she racked up 12
strikeouts.


The junior pitcher, who competed
for the Canadian national team in the
Beijing Olympics, had already shut
down the Gators' potent offensive
attack once this season in a two-hit,
nine-inning shutout on Feb. 20, when
Lawrie led the Huskies to a 1-0 vic-
tory.
To leave Oklahoma City with a
national title, UF will have to beat
Lawrie, the USA Soft-
ball National Collegiate
Player of the Year, twice
in a row a feat only
Softball Stanford has accom-
plished this season. The
Gators will have a chance to get back
at Lawrie tonight at 8 p.m. in Game 2
of the championship series.
"I really think we took way too
many pitches," said third baseman
Corrie Brooks, who had one of UF's
two hits. "We really didn't fight a
whole lot. We're definitely going to
come out tomorrow and be ready to
swing."
Stacey Nelson (41-4, 0.58 ERA)
shouldered the loss for UF after giv-

UF's Megan Bush (right) puts her arm around Stacey Nelson (center) as the Gators wait to shake
hands with Washington following an 8-0 loss in Game 1 of the WCWS finals on Monday.


Dumbfounded in defeat


OKLAHOMA CITY
Washington didn't just punch
UF in the stomach; the Hus-
kies reached into the Gators'
collective chest and pulled out their
still-beating heart like Jim Carrey in
Dumb and Dumber.
It's one thing to lose a 1-0 pitchers'
duel the way UF did to Washington
when the teams met earlier this season
on Feb. 20.
The way the Huskies hit around UF
ace Stacey Nelson with such regularity
is alarming.
Nelson is the heart of this team, so
it shouldn't come as a surprise that
when she started to struggle inside the
pitcher's circle, her team lost the abil-
ity to play with any emotion or fire.
After Kristina Hilberth's third-
inning throwing error put the Gators
in a 4-0 hole, the team looked down


and out for the
first time since I
started covering
the beat at the
beginning of last
d season's magical
Kyle Maistri run. Even when
e Point UF was down
Kylhope Pis n 5-2 heading into
kmaistri@aIligator.org 5-2 heading into
the final inning
against Alabama
on Sunday night, the team looked live-
ly and capable of a comeback. With
Lawrie mowing down batter after bat-
ter hope was no where to be found.
Washington tacked on a two-run
double in the fifth and a two-run hom-
er in the sixth on its way to the highest
scoring output by a UF opponent in
more than two years.

Gators sweep NCAA Regional


By PHIL KEGLER

It was a tale of two teams going in op-
posite directions
In one corer stood Miami, a power-
house year-in and year-out, who has made
it to the College World Series 11 of the last
15 years.
But it was 11th-ranked UF, the No. 8 na-
tional seed, who earned the right to host a
NCAA Baseball Regional this year.
UF and Miami met in Gainesville during
the regular-season on Feb. 27 March 1, and
the 'Canes swept all three games by a com-
bined score of 26-8.
The Gators showed how far they have
come over the weekend, sweeping all three
games, including 8-2 and 16-5 wins against
the Hurricanes.
UF will host Southern Miss, winners of
the Atlanta Regional, in a best-of-three Su-
per Regional this weekend with a berth to
the College World Series on the line.
This past weekend's victory marked the


first time in 11 tries that UF advanced out of
a regional that also included Miami.
"We didn't really talk about that, to
be honest with you," UF coach Kevin
O'Sullivan said of the long history of losses.
"We're not the same team that we were the
second weekend of the year.
"We're not the same team that we

"The past is the past."
UF jumped out to a comfortable lead
Sunday night, thanks to a five-run outburst
in the top of the first. (The teams flip a coin
to determine home-away. Miami's win led
to UF being in the away dugout in its own
ballpark.)
Hurricanes starter Iden Nazario lasted
only .1 of an inning, giving five earned runs
behind doubles by Jonathan Pigott and Ted-

The media was prepared to head
back to Gainesville the next day,
and the fan base was rattled, but
the team never showed an ounce
of worry. Justified or not, they had
a quiet confidence in themselves to
come out and win as many games as

lowed 11 runs, as compared to her

zona and Michigan.
"There's just something that's
not clicking," Nelson said. "I'm not
hitting the spots that I want to, and
I guess I'll just go home tonight and
figure out what that is."
It wasn't what she said, but the
way she said it that startled me.
She looked like a pitcher who just
got upstaged on the biggest stage.
She looked like a pitcher who
just let down her team.
And she looked like a pitcher
who didn't have the answers not
only to my question, but to the more
complex ones she's sure to face on
the field today and possibly tomor-
row.
I have never seen Stacey Nelson
like that.
UF's ace is usually the most
composed, worry-free player on the
field.
And the Gators will need her to
be exactly that in order to dig them-
selves out of their biggest hole yet.

ing up four earned runs for
the second straight game.
Washington put up four
runs on Nelson on one play
in the third when a bases-
loaded grounder by shortstop
Jenn Salling went from bad to
worse for UF.
One run easily scored as
the ball rolled into center field-
er Kim Waleszonia's glove.
Kristina Hilberth couldn't tag
Ashley Charters at home in
time and, in an attempt to nail
the runner at second, made a
rare defensive error just her
third of the season.
The senior threw the ball
back into center field, and it
went all 220 feet back to the
center-field fence, giving Kimi
Pohlman and Salling plenty
of time to cross the plate.
Salling jumped up and
emphatically stomped her
feet on the plate, having effec-


tively stomped out the Gators'
chances against the Huskies.
"If you're not used to do-
ing that, and that happens to
you in that kind of a game,
it's tough to bounce back,"
Washington coach Heather
Tarr said. "All great teams
have been there before, and
they just obviously haven't
had that many losses to deal
with."
"I really think we took
way too many pitches."

The Huskies scored two
more runs in the fifth on a
two-out double by Morgan
Stuart, who leads all players
with 10 hits in the WCWS,
that bounced off the center-
field wall.
The next inning, sopho-
more pitcher Stephanie Bro-
mbacher replaced Nelson in


the circle. Brombacher gave
up a two-run homer to Char-
ters in the top of the sixth and
finished the day with two
hits, two earned runs and
two walks in two innings of
work.
The Gators entered Mon-
day night's matchup unde-
feated in WCWS play after
toppling ninth-seeded Arizo-
na, fifth-seeded Michigan and
fourth-seeded Alabama. Nel-
son was dominant for the first
two games, and a timely hit
by a senior leader made the

pushing her team past the

tering the final frame down

Tucker wins MVP honors, sets single-season RBI record


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligatororg

When Miami last came to town
during the final weekend of Febru-
ary, UF freshman Preston Tucker
was fighting for playing time and
hitting sixth or seventh in the line-
up. The 'Canes swept the Gators on
that trip.
How things have changed.
Now the Gators' everyday first
baseman and batting third, Tucker
went 4 for 5 with three RBIs on
Sunday night to help UF blow out
Miami 16-5 and sweep the NCAA
Regional.
His bloop single to center in the
first inning drove in Avery Barnes
and gave Tucker UF's single-season
RBI record, breaking Ryan Shealy's
mark of 80 in 2002. Tucker now has
83 with at least two games left to
play next weekend in a Super Re-
gional.
"There's just certain guys that
when they come to the plate, every-
body stops what they're doing and
they watch," Florida coach Kevin
O'Sullivan said. "He's got an air
about him. He's got confidence, and
you can see it in his mannerisms.
He's been locked in for an awfully
long time."
It has paid off for the No. 8 na-
tional seed Gators (42-20) as well.
UF is 35-13 (.729) when Tucker
starts at first base.
The Southeastern Conference's
Co-Freshman of the Year earned
Regional MVP honors after going


9 for 13 (.692) in three games over
the weekend, including two home
runs, six RBIs and a 1.231 slugging
percentage.
"He wasn't in the lineup the first
couple weeks, and for him to battle
and work, where he's at he's a
tremendous player," UF center
fielder Matt den Dekker said. "It's
probably one of the most amazing
seasons I've ever seen. To do that,
coming in as a freshman, to make
that adjustment so quick it shows
how talented he is. He's been a ma-
jor part of our success this season."
Both Tucker and O'Sullivan
brought up all the adjustments and
learning curve a
freshman faces af-
ter the game Sun-
day. The freshman
Baseball slugger said he has
been making ad-
justments all the way from the first
game of the season until now and is
still trying to adjust to the quicker
speed of the college game.
To the casual observer, it might
seem like his current production is
just more of the same.
As a junior at Tampa Plant High,
he won the Hillsborough County
Triple Crown, hitting .561 with
nine home runs and 51 RBIs. Two
years later in Gainesville, Tucker is
hitting .357 with 14 home runs and
a .617 slugging percentage. He has
struck out only 22 times in 230 at-
bats, the fewest among six Gators
with more than 150 at-bats.
He has even begun to become
the subject of folk lore around


Gainesville. Second baseman Josh
Adams said he pitched batting
practice to Tucker when he arrived
in the summer and watched the
freshman hit balls off the score-
board in right-center field, 375 feet
away from home plate.
On two occasions on Sunday


night, Miami coach Jim Morris
brought in a new pitcher to face
Tucker.
He had a single in the fourth and
then was hit by a pitch in the sixth
against the new hurlers.
Through it all, the freshman
humbly deflects praise.


"The MVP goes to everyone
swinging the bat," Tucker said.
"There's always guys on base when
I get up there. There's a lot of pres-
sure on the pitcher."
Then again, the way Tucker hits,
there might have been pressure on
the pitcher with the bases empty.

dy Foster.
Gators first baseman Preston Tucker, who took home
Regional MVP honors, said UF got inspiration for its of-
fensive breakout from watching Florida State's game in
the locker room before the game. The Seminoles scored
20 runs in the first three innings en route to a 37-6 win
against Ohio State on Sunday.
"We figured, 'Why can't we do the same thing?'" Tuck-
er said. "We started getting guys on base early one outs,
no outs. Every time we got a runner on second or third, we
scored them."
UF blew the game open with a seven-run fifth inning,
in which all of the Gators' runs came with two outs. Tucker
and Josh Adams hit back-to-back home runs during the
barrage that included seven straight hits by UF batters. The
Gators had 22 hits in the 16-5 victory on Sunday, matching
a school postseason record.
Miami answered with four in the bottom of the fifth to
cose the gap to 16-5 but would get no closer. UF starter
Alex Panteliodis went 4.2 innings and gave up five earned,
but four pitchers (Patrick Keating, Nick Maronde, Tony
Davis, Billy Bullock) combined to pitch 4.1 scoreless in-
nings and shut the door. Keating (4-3,4.66 ERA) picked up
the win in relief.
"That's kinda been our m.o. all year," O'Sullivan said.
"Two-strike hits, two-out runs. That comes from grit, and
you grind it out and you don't give in.
"Those two-out runs they certainly give the team a
lot of momentum and they certainly did tonight as well."
Earlier in the weekend, UF got a tougher-than-expected
opener against Bethune-Cookman. The Wildcats scored the
first four runs of the game and led 7-5 going into the bot-
tom of the ninth. Tucker scored on a Matt den Dekker RBI
single and Gators catcher Teddy Foster answered with a
one-out, two-run game-winning single to clinch a 8-7 win.


Gators hand 'Canes surprising exit


* MIAMI HAD REACHED THE COLLEGE WORLD
SERIES 11 OF THE LAST 15 YEARS.

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

Miami coach Jim Morris watched the last eight innings
of his team's season-ending loss from a locker room Sun-
day night.
That didn't make it any easier to handle.
The Hurricanes' 16th-year manager was ejected by
the home plate umpire after the first inning, and his team
didn't fare much better on the field as UF (42-20) swept the
Gainesville Regional with a 16-5 win in front of a crowd of
2,351 Sunday. The No. 8 national seed Gators handed the
'Canes an 8-2 loss on Saturday night as well.
Miami (38-22) had made it to the College World Series
in 11 of Morris' previous 15 years and had been ranked as
high as No. 2 in the National Collegiate Baseball Writers
Association poll on March 23.
None of that mattered this weekend, however.
"We've been to a [NCAA] Regional 37 years in a row,
so making it to a regional doesn't give you any reason to
throw a flag up," Morris said. "I'm spoiled being at Mi-
ami, just like our fans and our players. All of us are very
disappointed if you don't win and you don't go back to
Omaha."
Morris' disagreement with home-plate umpire David
Wiley began in the bottom half of the first with Miami
already trailing 5-1 when left fielder Chris Herrmann
was hit by a pitch. Wiley ruled that Herrmann had leaned


into the pitch and did not award him first base. Morris
jogged down from the third-base coach's box to argue the
call for several minutes before walking back. Herrmann
struck out one pitch later, and Morris appeared to say
something to Wiley before turning his back and walking
into the third-base dugout.
By the time Morris reached the first step of the dugout,
Wiley had ejected him.
When the coach realized what had happened, he
rushed back to home plate, argued with Wiley and kicked
dirt over home plate twice before two other umpires got
between Morris and Wiley.
The coach watched the rest of the game from a locker
room inside the UF baseball complex.
"He said (Herrmann) put his elbow out over the plate,"
Morris said. "I'll let you watch TV and decide who was
right and who was wrong.
"Personally I thought (the ejection) was uncalled for,
but that's my opinion."
If the tirade was intended to inspire his team, the Hur-
ricanes' pitching didn't get the message. Prior to the ejec-
tion, Miami starter Iden Nazario gave up five earned runs
in 1/3 of an inning before being pulled. Even after Morris
was sent off, the bullpen allowed Florida to put up 11 runs
in the final eight innings, including a seven-run fifth in
which all the scoring came with two outs.
"You can't get down big early," Morris said. "We
walked guys and gave them opportunities and they took
advantage of those opportunities. When you get down
big against Florida ... it's going to be awful tough on any-
body.
"It was a long eight innings to watch, whether you
were on the field or in the locker room."

Season ends in disappointment

Horschel caps career as four-time All-American


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer

The Gators entered the NCAA
Championships full of confi-
dence after a win at the South-
west Regional, but that quickly
changed as a dismal first round
left the team searching for its
swagger.
Unfortunately, the No. 8 UF
men's golf team never recovered
and saw its season come to an
early end at the NCAA Champi-
onships in Toledo, Ohio.
After a disappointing first
round, the Gators could not fin-
ish the third day in the top eight
and therefore missed the cut for
match play and ended the event
in 19th place with a score of 37
over par.
Texas A&M went on to win
the title after an exciting two
days of match play.
"I can't really say anything
real positive occurred in Tole-
do," UF coach Buddy Alexander
said. "We had some pretty lofty
expectations going in."
A first round score of 26 over
par proved to be too much for
UF to overcome.
One of the reasons the Gators
got off to such a disastrous start
were holes one through nine.
In the first round, the team
shot 30 over par over that
stretch.
"That was a huge disappoint-
ment because it put us in a huge


hole right out of the box," Al-
exander said. "Holes three to
seven are just an incredibly hard
stretch, perhaps the toughest
five in a row that I know of in
golf."
Senior Billy Horschel saw his
UF career come to an end.
"There is no question that
Billy was a terrific player,
maybe the best I've ever
had. You don't replace
Billy."
Buddy Alexander
UF golf coach

He finished his last collegiate
event with a score of 4 over par.
It was only the second time this
season that he has finished a
tournament over par.
"It's always tough to end a
career at one place," Horschel
said. "It sucks because I want-
ed the team to play well and it
just wasn't our week, and that
hurt."
Although he was unhappy
with the way he ended his col-
legiate career, he didn't let that
stop him from reflecting on the
past four years.
"These years were the best. If
you look at what the other sports
did while I was in school, it's un-
believable," he said. "Then you
look at the golf side of it, and
being coached by Buddy, one of


the best coaches in golf history,
it means a lot."
The other seniors, Toby Rag-
land and Will Strickler, shot 19
over par and 13 over par, respec-
tively.
While the season had its high
points, the Gators were never
able to fulfill expectations of a
conference championship and
NCAA championship.
"I would say this season has
been a disappointment, to be
real honest," Alexander said.
"By UF and Buddy Alexander
standards, I wasn't happy with
this year."

SENIOR NAMED TO FOURTH ALL-
AMERICA TEAM:
UF did receive some good news
over the weekend, as Horschel
was named to the Division I PING
All-America First Team for 2008-
09 season.
He has made an All-America
team in each of the four years he
has played at UF, and this is the
third time he has made the first
team.
"There is no question that
Billy was a terrific player, may-
be the best I've ever had," Alex-
ander said. "You don't replace
Billy."
While his career as a Gator
has come to an end, he will now
take on another challenge.
"I'm going to try to play pro-
fessional golf now. We'll see how
it works out," Horschel said.


UF senior Billy Horschel leaves UF as a four-time All-American and one
of the best golfers in Gators history. He plans to play professionally.

"Our goal was to qualify as many athletes
as possible," Holloway said. "I think we were
able to do that."
