'Trailer Park' show returns to Hippodrome


By SISTINE GURREY
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Hippodrome State Theatre's most suc-
cessful show is returning to the Mainstage af-
ter a three-year hiatus.
Attracting an audience of 21,000 in 2006,


"The Great American Trailer Park Musical,"
opens Friday at 8 p.m.
"The show is better than ever," said Jessica
Thompson, director of marketing at the Hip-
podrome.
Based on a fictional trailer park in Starke
named Armadillo Acres, the musical takes the
audience through a whirlwind of problems


beginning with the arrival of Pippi, a runaway
stripper who has an affair with one of the resi-
dents. With three members from the original
cast returning for the show, Mark Chambers,
Catherine Fries Vaughn and Kelly Atkins, the
show is expected to be a huge hit once again,
Thompson said.
"It has a big beginning and a big ending,"


Thompson said. "People will love it."
The show will run every day of the week,
except Mondays, until July 12.
Tickets range from $25 to $30 for general
audience members, $20 for seniors and $12 for
college students with a valid ID. Starke resi-
dents can purchase $12 tickets with proof of
residency.


Car booting

reviews

U BOOTING FEE IS $16 LESS THAN
TOWING A CAR.

By ABBIE PARKER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Parking illegally in Midtown may result in
a boot instead of a tow, and some say it's for
the better.
Recent changes in the towing policy at the
UF Plaza, 1702 W. University Ave., have frus-
trated some merchants in the area, but others
argue that booting is preferable to drivers.
Parking Solutions, the towing company that
patrols the lot, switched from towing cars in the
lot to booting about seven weeks ago.
Kevin Witesides, owner of Parking Solu-
tions, points out that booting is less expensive
than towing but still acts as deterrent.
The booting fee is $60 versus $76 for towing. Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
Booting also reduces the chances of damaging Tearful Teammate

towing, he said.

Commissioners to vote on new parking ticket ordinance


By ROBERTA 0. ROBERTS
Alligator Writer

Students may get more time to
think up a good excuse when con-
testing city parking tickets.
If the City of Gainesville decides
to pass a change in the code of ordi-


nances at today's City Commission
meeting at 1 p.m. in City Hall, driv-
ers will have more time to respond
to a denied parking ticket petition.
Under the revised section of
Appendix A of the ordinances, a
person would have four additional
work days to respond to a denial of


his or her original appeal.
Previously,
Gainesville City the response
Government time included
weekends and
holidays.
The City proposed to increase
the response time after a citizen


wrote a letter saying that by the
time they received the instructions
to appeal, the response time had
run out, said Ronald Combs, senior
assistant city attorney.
One UF student believes that
people appeal parking tickets be-
cause it is hard to find authorized


parking in the city.
"The way they made Gainesville,
there isn't much space for parking,
especially in the downtown area
around UF," said Chris Hillhouse,
a UF student.

After 40 years in prison, man stabs two
A man was arrested Sunday night after
stabbing two people in Gainesville's Tent
City, a homeless community.
Kenneth Griffin, 65, was wandering near
the tent of Ronnie Brannock, 40, when Bran-
nock got upset that there was a stranger at
the campsite. The men got into an argument,
and Griffin punched Brannock.
While Griffin and Brannock were fight-
ing, Brannock called for his neighbor, Wil-
liamJosey, 39, said Keith Kameg, Gainesville


Police Department spokesman. When Josey
came out to try to stop the fight, Griffin
stabbed Josey multiple times in the chest.
"Witnesses said they thought he was
punching Josey because of the way it looked,
but Griffin was really stabbing him," Kameg
said. He said Griffin also stabbed Brannock
once in the back. Brannock and Josie were
taken to Shands.
Kameg said Griffin has served 40 years
in prison for murdering three people.

Marijuana grow room discovered
A fire in an Ocala house re-
sulted in the discovery of a
grow room that contained more
than 40 marijuana plants.
At about 4:45 a.m. agents
from the Unified Drug Enforce-
ment Strike Team were called to
the fire at 2004 SW 38th Court
believing it contained a meth-
amphetamine lab.
When they arrived, the
agents found that almost half of
the house was sectioned off to
grow marijuana, a High Inten-
sity Drug Trafficking Area Pro-
gram release stated.
After finding 31 charred mar-
ijuana plants and other growing
equipment in the debris, agents
believe the fire was started in
the grow room.
According to the release,
footprints were found near the
back of the grow room and led
to the backyard where 13 intact
marijuana plants were found.
The renter, Julian Vinas, said
he didn't know about the grow
room and that a man named
Miguel was responsible for the
marijuana plants and the fire.
Vinas, 48, said Miguel paid
him $350 a month to live in the
house with Vinas' wife, their
three kids and the family dog,
the release stated.
Although the family was
sleeping when the fire started at
1 a.m., they made it out of the
house safely.
Vinas was arrested and
charged with arson, cultivation
of marijuana, possession of a
firearm while committing a fel-
ony and child endangerment.

Gville celebrates rock legends
A year after his death, Bo
Diddley is still giving back to
the Florida community where he
spent the last years of his life.
On Saturday, the City of Ar-
cher will hold its Yulee Diddley
Day, in honor of its two most
famous citizens: rock legend Bo
Diddley and railroad pioneer Da-
vid Levy Yulee.
Celebrating Diddley is a new
addition to the festival, following
his death about a year ago.
Festival organizers had hoped
last year that Diddley would join
the Yulee Day parade, but the
musician suffered a fatal stroke
and his funeral was held on the
same day as the festival.

Diddley will be remembered
at the festival with a small
memorabilia museum, a raffle
for a Diddley signature guitar
and rock, rap, pop and gospel
performances by family mem-
bers.
The rock 'n' roll world left
Diddley wanting more, said
Evelyn Kelly, Diddley's daugh-
ter.
"He was always an adven-
turous type, he always wanted
his own community, a place
where all his family could come
and stay and be together," she
said. "His old manager men-
tioned Archer, and he came
here and looked for some land
and decided he would live
here."
When Diddley died, fam-
ily members created the Bo
Diddley Foundation Inc. in his
honor, which donates money to
local causes, including home-
lessness. One of the founda-
tion's projects has been the
creation of the memorabilia
museum, which will debut at
the festival on Saturday.
"Since the museum is small,
it is not going to be a huge
display, but the best items
of Diddley's past will be dis-
played," said Faith Fusillo,
Diddley's co-manager and
board member of the founda-
tion. The exhibit will include
Diddley's stage guitar, gold re-
cords, stage costumes and pic-
tures with famous friends like
Eric Clapton and Bruce Spring-
steen. Admission will be $2.
Plans for the museum to go
on tour are being discussed,
Kelly said.
Also, a signature Bo Diddley
red-square Gretsch guitar will
be raffled off on Saturday. Tick-
ets will be sold at the Archer
post office for $1 apiece.
All revenue from the mu-
seum and the raffle will go to
the foundation, Fusillo said in
a phone interview. The founda-
tion is unsure of which chari-
ties will receive money, but all
donations will be given within
Archer, she said.
The choice to keep contribu-
tions local carries on the spirit
of Diddley's charity, according
to Fusillo.
"Small towns are having fi-
nancial difficulties during these
rough economic times," she
said. "If Bo was still here, he
would be helping."
Phil Denton, president of the
Archer Historical Society, be-
lieves that recognizing Diddley
will bring more people to the
festival than in previous years.
"We are getting a more early
excitement this year than past
years and a higher level of in-
terest," said Denton, citing
5,000 visitors to last year's fes-
tival. "Overall I think it will be
the biggest Yulee Day we have
had in 15 years."


Saturday evening Diddley's
relatives will take the stage as
The All Star Jams, which includes
at least 15 members, includ-
ing Diddley's grandson Garry
Mitchell "Philosopher G," who
performs positive rap music.
Bo influenced all of the fam-
ily's music abilities, Kelly said.
On Friday, Gainesville will
also honor Diddley during this
week's Free Friday at Bo Diddley
Plaza with a concert by The All
Star Jams and remarks from city
officials.
"He has done so much for
the Gainesville community and
the homeless during his lifetime.
He deserves this," Kelly said.
"Diddley was constantly trying
to help the homeless, whether it
was donations or free concerts."

UF requests tuition hike


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

Some UF students could see tuition in-
crease by almost 16 percent beginning in
the fall, and most of that increase wouldn't
be covered by Bright Futures.
The bulk of the increase stems from a
new law allowing all 11 state universities
to raise tuition by up to 15 percent until
they reach the national average.
The state approved an 8 percent tuition
hike for all state universities next year, and
UF has asked its Board of Trustees, the
university's highest governing body, to
approve an increase of another 7 percent
in order to reach the 15 percent limit. They
will vote on the proposal June 12.
The 7 percent increase would apply
only to students who enrolled in the fall of
2007 or later, which means in-state under-
graduates who fall in this category would
pay $145.76 per credit hour, or about $20
more than before.
The remaining portions of the increase
come from a collection of fee increases as
well as a new technology fee.
Student Body President Jordan Johnson
said he's in favor of the tuition increase be-
cause it will help UF without placing an
undue burden on students.
"This is going to be our way of pushing
through these tough times," Johnson said.
Johnson said he thinks it's about time
UF was allowed to increase its tuition to
the national average, which was $6,585 at


public universities this year, according to
the College Board. At UF, in-state under-
graduates taking 30 credits pay $3,777 a
year now and would pay about $4,373 next
year if the changes pass.
"It's amazing we've come this far with
where our tuition is at," Johnson said.
He said he's also in favor of the new
technology fee, which could include ex-
panding free printing beyond the third
floor of the Reitz Union and creating a cen-
tral database where students can store their
information, allowing students to access
their personal documents from any com-
puter on campus.
U F Johnson said
Administration a new committee
will be created in
Summer B to determine exactly how the
money, $4.42 per credit hour for under-
graduates, will be spent.
"I'm pumped," he said at the Board of
Trustees committee meeting Wednesday.
Trustees were also briefed on the com-
position of UF's incoming freshman class.
For the first time ever, 60 percent of the
admitted applicants are female. Women
at UF also tend to have higher graduation
rates and graduate sooner than men, said
UF Provost Joe Glover.
Trustees were told that UF has accepted
about 2,600 transfer students for next year,
which is about 600 more than last year, de-
spite UF reducing the number of transfer
students it accepted this year. UF is also in
the process of cutting enrollment by 4,000
over a four-year period.

Charges dropped for local artist
By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org
Charges will not be filed against Ser-
gio Castro, 22, the UF student arrested
last week for spray-painting a memo-
rial to a drowned Gainesville resident
on The Top restaurant in downtown
Gainesville.
Prosecutors who reviewed the case
chose not to file charges because it wasn't
a typical case of graffiti vandalism and
because the owners of The Top wanted
the felony charge of criminal mischief
dropped, said Spencer Mann, spokes-
man for the State Attorney's office.
Castro was arrested after a Gainesville
Police Department officer noticed him
trying to spray-paint the words "RIP
MUCH LOVE" in honor of Barry Ber-
nard, the Gainesville resident whose
body was found last month near the Ma-
tanzas Inlet in St. Johns County.
"This is someone who was distraught
over the loss of a friend who wanted to
put a memorial up," Mann said. "Not to
excuse it, but it helps us to better under-
stand his motivation."
Castro said he is relieved that the
charges have been dropped and thanked
the owners of The Top for their lenien-
cy.
Overall, he said the situation has been
a positive one.
"The whole purpose behind me go-
ing out and doing this was to bring at-
tention to the cause," he said.
There will be events to benefit the
family at Sharab Lounge in downtown
Gainesville tonight and Friday night, Harrison Diamond/Alligator Staff
and the funeral will be Sunday morning Sergio Castro, a local artist, sits in front of samples of his art-
at the Thomas Center, he said. work on May 18 at Sharab Lounge on Main Street.

STUDENT LIFE


Six-year struggle inspires McArthur to give back


By HARRISON DIAMOND
Alligator Staff Writer
hdiamond@alligator.org

When he came to Gainesville to play for
the UF baseball team, Brandon McArthur did
not plan to stay for six years.
After a random act of violence severely in-
jured him in his first year, the 24-year-old had
to take a different approach to his life that not
only led to his becoming a leader on the field
but to his emergence as a contributor to the
community.
McArthur said he doesn't remember any-
thing from the night he was attacked and has
to rely on the accounts of those who were
with him.
On the night of Oct. 30, 2003, he was
punched in the head and knocked uncon-
scious near the intersection of West Univer-
sity Avenue and Northwest 17th Street.
The impact of his head hitting the ground
caused brain swelling and bleeding in his
skull, leaving him in a coma, McArthur said.
"They weren't sure whether he was go-
ing to live, let alone play," said John Hines,
sports information director for the UF base-
ball team.
Brandon's sister, Amy McArthur, 27, said
she was shocked when she heard the news.
"Seeing him laying in the hospital bed was
just unreal," she said.
The injury changed his perspective on life,
and McArthur said he established a close re-
lationship with God.
"Once my injury came, that humbled me,
and made me realize that life can be taken
away from you at any point in time," he said.
"I've cherished so many things so much bet-
ter now, that I think it's definitely made me a
better person to live day by day."
After his recovery, McArthur began vol-
unteering in the Gainesville community by
speaking at Fellowship of Christian Athletes
meetings, joining the Student-Athlete Com-
mittee and the Big Brothers Big Sisters orga-
nization.
He also started volunteering at Shands
Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, where he spent
two weeks as a patient.
The ICU visits are emotionally intense, as
he visits with families and patients in similar
positions to his own experience.
"I don't ever remember seeing myself in
that state... but when I see people... who
can't interact with you, I was in a coma for a
week...that really gets to me, because I can't
imagine my family like that, trying to interact


with me and not being able to speak to me or
have me speak back to them," he said.
McArthur once visited with the family of
a baseball player who had suffered severe in-
juries in an auto accident and was a patient at
Shands.
"I met with his family the entire time that
he was in the hospital, just tried to give them
inspiration, give them hope that their son can
make it through just like I did," he said.
Now that he has seen what a patient's
family goes through, McArthur said he helps
them stay positive.
"Any time I get the opportunity to go in
there and see people or families that are in
shambles, I try to lift their spirits up and let
them believe that their siblings or their sons or
daughters can overcome it," he said.
He said his family, in particular his mother
Valerie and his sister Amy are proud of his
volunteering.


"It really helps people who are going
through similar situations to see him and how
he's overcome all his obstacles," Amy said.
"I'm very proud of what he's doing with his
life."
The most rewarding part of his volunteer-
ing is the knowledge that he has helped a pa-
tient or family on the road to recovery.
"If I can just get one person, just get in one
person's head and get them to buy into the
correct way to go about their stay and believe
that they can overcome any obstacle in their
lives, if I can just touch that one person I think
that I've succeeded that day," McArthur said.
He tries to help his younger baseball team-
mates become active in community service,
despite not having the same experiences he
does.
"I want them to know that they can do it
just like I can do it in their own way because
they face [their own] obstacles," he said.

After six years in Gainesville, UF third baseman Brandon McArthur, right, will play his
final home games this weekend in the NCAA Super Regional.


McArthur continued to battle injuries after
missing the 2004 season. He missed the entire
2007 season due to a torn ulnar collateral liga-
ment in his right elbow and played part of the
2008 season with a torn anterior cruciate liga-
ment.
He still hopes to play professionally, but
McArthur realizes his injuries and age might
prevent that.
"Brandon is a realist," Hines said. "When
your body takes that much punishment...
sooner or later, it might not keep coming
back."
Coaching or law enforcement are possi-
bilities he's exploring, the criminology major
said.
Hines said he can see McArthur having a
career in coaching.
"Baseball is in his blood," he said.
If McArthur cannot play professional base-
ball, Hines is confident that he will succeed in
whatever he does.
"If Brandon never steps on the baseball
field again, he has more than enough going
for him to make a life for himself," he said.
McArthur was named a finalist for the
Lowe's Senior CLASS award, an award given
to the senior athlete in each college sport dem-
onstrating a commitment to his or her school
and achievements in the fields of "Character,
Classroom, Community and Competition."
The winner will be announced at the Col-
lege World Series in Omaha, Neb., on June
19.
With UF hosting a NCAA Super Regional
this weekend, McArthur will play his final
Gators home game.
McArthur's sister plans to come to
Gainesville to watch him play in his final
home series and is excited that he may have a
chance to go back to Omaha, she said.
McArthur is hopeful that the Gators can
defeat Southern Miss and advance to the Col-
lege World Series.
"These six years have kind of flown by,"
he said. "I'm hoping and praying that we can
go out this weekend and get the chance to go
back to Omaha, because that's what I wanted
to come back here for."
Hines said McArthur and pitcher Stephen
Locke are the only players on the roster with
College World Series experience.
McArthur sees a College World Series trip
as a way to give back to the fans.
"These fans have supported me through-
out my six years, and I just wanted to show
them that I really thank them for everything
they've done for me."

Editorial
With King James left watching from his medical bed
and Superman laughing all the way to the STAPLES
Center, the Department of Darts & Laurels offers
Gainesville's faux Orlando Magic fans a hearty congratulations
on reaching the NBA Finals.
Hell, who would have "thunk" a team constructed around
a SpongeBob SquarePants-loving 23-year-old and coached by a
Men's Wearhouse-rocking hedgehog could reach the summit of
the esteemed Eastern Conference?
Before we head to Gainesville's finest drinking establish-
ment, otherwise known as Gator City (our sincerest apologies
go out to Munigan's) for Game 1 of the Finals, the Department
of Darts & Laurels proudly presents this week's J.J.-Redick's-
back-should-be-the-next-Proactiv-spokesman edition of...



Darts & Laurels

While the state of Tennessee has been known to house a
world of oddities (Lane Kiffin, anyone?), the latest resident to
make headlines surprisingly does not hail from Knoxville. For
wearing nothing more than a thong while robbing a house, the
Department of Darts & Laurels tosses a leave-the-panties-to-
the-ladies DART at the whale-tailed wonder. We do not harbor
any ill-will against revealing underwear and neither does Tim
Tebow (check out the article on Page 10), but something tells us
a mask and black clothing works better as criminal attire.
With countless dogs making headlines for all the wrong rea-
sons, one canine stands out from all the rest for doing a good
deed. The Department of Darts & Laurels awards a you-should-
hire-Scott-Boras-as-your-agent-when-Hollywood-starts-calling
LAUREL to Blewett the black Labrador retriever for rescuing
Pepper, an old arthritic dog who had gone missing. Blewett
knows a thing or two about being saved by the good graces of
others as he relied on food from travelers when he found him-
self homeless during a rough patch last March.
No word on whether the star of "Air Bud" is willing to un-
dergo a dye job for the movie.
When a Pittsburgh Pirates' minor league baseball team de-
cided to work President Barack Obama into a fan giveaway,
little did they realize the federal government would come into
play. For confiscating more than 1,000 bobbleheads featuring
the president in his high school basketball uniform, the Depart-
ment of Darts & Laurels chucks a maybe-the-higher-ups-vot-
ed-for-the-other-guy DART at the U.S. Customs based in Los
Angeles. Maybe we've watched the movie "Traffic" a few too
many times, but we suggest they boil down the bobbleheads to
see if the West Virginia Power were actually smuggling coke.
Word out of Nebraska reveals news of a 6-year-old boy
channeling his inner Jeff Gordon. The Department of Darts
& Laurels presents a you-should-totally-be-given-a-driver's-
license-for-your-efforts LAUREL to Tustin Mains for having
the wherewithal to drive the family truck to safety after his dad
passed out from a low blood sugar level. Score an assist to a
police officer who helped stop the vehicle, but praise is in order
any time a kindergartner can handle a Chevy Avalanche with-
out causing little more than minor damage.
The year 2009 has not been kind to peacocks living in Maka-
ha, Hawaii, as a heinous trifecta of poison, bullets and baseball
bats has claimed the lives of 11 of their brethren. For using her
Louisville Slugger to put "Pauly" in an early grave, the Depart-
ment of Darts & Laurels launches an at-least-you-weren't-the-
one-to-use-the-gun DART at Sandra Maloney. Maybe Ma-
loney is more of a cat person, but using her wood at the local
batting cage would've been a much better idea.
Sure riding roller coasters has been a summer vacation staple
ever since Coney Island's heyday, but now you can experience
Six Gs of fun all while collecting a paycheck. The Department of
Darts & Laurels extends an if-we-win-we're-quitting-our-day-
jobs LAUREL to the Orlando/Orange County Convention &
Visitors Bureau for sponsoring a contest where the winner gets
a fat 25k to ride roller coasters this fall. Don't bother applying
unless you've got a kickin' smile and a willingness to spend 67
days in Orlando (yuck).
That's all for this week. Go Lakers...err Gators!

No way to rationalize political ignorance


ecently, I read a letter to the editor of my hometown
newspaper. The author had worked himself into a
tizzy over President Barack Obama and the entire
democratic leadership in Washington and their push for
universal health care. He declared that any attempt at a
universal health care system was an attempt at socialism
and should be protested with equal zeal as one would pro-
test Stalin's Red Army coming down the road.
Never mind that the United States is the only industri-
alized nation not to have universal health care, or that the
U.S. spends more than double per capita on health care
than the average European country and still has a lower
average life expectancy, or that the Obama administration
has not pushed a single-payer system. Rather, such a sys-
tem would work with existing insurers and give Ameri-
cans the ability to opt out of the system if they so chose
- none of this mattered. The author rationally decided to
ignore these facts.
There's a lot of rationalized ignorance going around
these days. I'm pretty sure the zenith was hit when can-
didate Obama was labeled a socialist. No one seems ca-
pable anymore to engage in meaningful debate; instead
we take to the airwaves and to the newspapers and throw
out senseless labels. He's a socialist; the Hon. Sonia Soto-
mayor is a reverse racist. None of this child's play actually
accomplishes anything, but let us resort back to our origi-
nal intuitions and narrow thinking.
It would be incorrect to assume that liberals are any
less rationally ignorant than your average Rush Limbaugh
listener and Ann Coulter reader. Nor should I try to hold
myself up as a person who believes himself as any less
ignorant than others. Ask me to explain how the differ-
ences between the Punjabis and the Pashtun ethnic groups


in Pakistan contribute to the conflict
between India and Pakistan, and all
you'll get is a shrug.
There are at least 10 people who
will read this column and arrogant-
ly decide that they're quite fine ra-
Matthew Christ tionalizing their ignorance. Perhaps
letters@alligator.rg they don't have the time to read
every notable economist's opinion
about the stimulus bill and don't care whether former
President Ronald Reagan is truly to blame for our financial
crisis when he signed the Garn-St. Germain Depository In-
stitutions Act in 1982, as Nobel Prize winning economist
Paul Krugman observed in The New York Times yester-
day. That's fine. Who does have the time?
Others, though, will continue to rationalize their igno-
rance because they share a certain pride in their lack of
logic. Politicians haven't helped this bizarre reasoning,
deriding their constituents as "folks" and "average Joes."
Education, one would think, would be the key in turning
back the tidal wave of misinformation perpetuated by
rationalized ignorance, but according to the National En-
dowment for the Arts, the percentage of 17-year-olds who
read one book per year outside of the classroom was cut in
half from 1984 to 2004.
If there is one goal that any university or college should
strive for, I hope it's a goal that gives its students no excuse
to rationalize their ignorance. I hope that it's an education
that teaches the next generation of America that we can no
longer afford to partake in factless and fallacious debates.
And if all else fails, Newt Gingrich is a jerk.

Steps must be taken


Politicians and the business press
are looking for signs that the eco-
nomic crisis is over, and we'll soon
be back on track. Federal Reserve Chair-
man Ben Bernanke speaks of "green
shoots" of recovery. President Barack
Obama sees "glimmers of hope."
All the massive infusions of bor-
rowed stimulus and bailout money are
aimed at the dream of getting us back
to where we were during the recent
"boom." Do we really want to go there?
And even if we do, is such an economy
realistic today?
Yes, the bubble economy of 2000
created mountains of paper wealth. Be-
tween tax cuts for the wealthiest and
increasingly exotic (and risky) forms of
investment, the richest fraction of Amer-
icans did very well indeed.
But during that boom incomes stayed
flat for the overwhelming majority of
Americans even as productivity soared,
millions lost health care coverage; costs
of energy, housing, food and education
climbed and debt reached record levels.
If economic recovery means return-
ing to those times, there's no reason for
most of us to want it. This economic cri-
sis may be the best opportunity in our
lifetimes to shut down the unfair and de-
structive Wall Street system and reboot
with a values-based operating system
for a new economy designed to support
social and environmental balance and
the businesses that create sustainable
and fair prosperity.
We have seen what happens when
government and big business operate in
secret.
The new system must be open to
public scrutiny. It must be locally root-

GOP efforts to


block Sotomayor


reflect tired politics

erhaps you've been too immersed in one more
summer of undergraduate bliss before facing that
life-defining LSAT or MCAT this fall. Or perhaps
you've been debating the merits of Kobe Bryant's legacy
if he fails to win a title without Shaq, or why all Holly-
wood seems to do now is remake old films instead of
write new ones, to notice. If so, you are missing a show
far more embarrassing than Kris Allen winning American
Idol. This show is the hapless efforts of conservative ac-
tivists to paint President Barack Obama's Supreme Court
nominee Sonia Sotomayor as a liberal ideologue unfit for
service. With figures such as Rush Limbaugh admitting
the chances of stopping her nomination are minimal, the
question must be asked: Why the rabid opposition in the
first place?
In a somewhat tragic historical twist of fate, Sotomay-
or, a Latina woman who grew up in the ethnically rich
South Bronx and now sits on a federal bench dominated
by white, ruling class males, is being cast by conserva-
tives not as the discriminated but the discriminator. To
Neil W. Blackmon bolster this claim, conserva-
tives are pointing to her ap-
Speaking Out pellate court ruling against
firefighter Frank Ricci, a dys-
lexic white male who in 2003 aced a lieutenant's pro-
motion test given by the city but was denied promotion
when all 19 black applicants who took the test failed. A
Supreme Court ruling on this case, likely in Ricci's favor,
should come this month. Nonetheless, conservatives are
using it to say Sotomayor is guilty of "reverse racism."
One can't help but sense the Shakespearian-level irony
in this assault on Sotomayor. Not only do the claims she
is racist reek of politics a thinly veiled, desperate ploy
to reconnect with blue-collar voters, who may not be lis-
tening anyway and who trended Obama in the previous
election; it more disturbingly continues the trend of con-
servative historical amnesia. After nominating their pal
Harriet Miers to the high tribunal failed, Rovian Republi-
cans applauded their nominee Samuel Alito's "empathy"
and regard for lived experience when he said his own
Italian-American heritage and their history of discrimi-
nation influenced his perspective in cases on discrimina-
tion. It is perplexing and sad that suddenly Sotomayor's
admitted influences from her own background warrant a
flogging while Alito's merit conservative applause.
Alternatively, conservative legal theorists have la-
beled Sotomayor an activist whose decisions are "results-
oriented" and too focused on outcomes rather than the
law. The truth is that in 15 years on the federal bench
(more than either of President George W. Bush's nomi-
nees), Sotomayor does not appear to have a compelling
attachment to any particular judicial theory.
The "I forgot" moment in this assault is that one of the
conservative judicial movement's favorite sons, the late
chief justice of the United States Justice William Rehn-
quist, was perhaps the most result-oriented justice in the
history of the court. He never consistently adhered to any
theory, instead using the "original intent" theory or other
legal theories whenever it was most convenient to achieve
a desired result. In many respects, the careful, fact-based
reasoning innate to Sotomayor's opinions resemble more
a conservative "ideas have consequences" approach, or
the approach of her moderate predecessor, Justice David
Souter, than they do any liberal legal theory.
If her confirmation is the endgame, then the net ben-
efit of rabid opposition must outweigh the end result to
serve a purpose. Here it does not. It is merely political
grandstanding that can only further the chasm between
the base of the Republican Party and the pulse of the
country, and for conservatives, it creates the greater risk
that Obama will take a "damn the torpedoes" approach
to his next nominee, appointing not a moderate like Soto-
mayor but rather a judge who actually fits the bill of "lib-
eral ideologue" or "judicial activist," leaving conserva-
tives with little or no political capital to get in the way.

UF study: Brains superior to looks, self-confidence


* SMART PEOPLE HAVE THE
MOST ECONOMIC SUCCESS.

By JESSICA CHAPMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

It turns out those Jimmy Choos
can't be considered an investment.
A recent UF study shows intel-
ligent people have more economic
success over a lifetime than those
who are attractive or self-confident.
"If you were somehow able to
choose from being smart, good-
looking or self-confident, our study


shows that while you'd want all
three qualities, brains are the most
important to economic success," said
Timothy Judge, the UF management
professor who conducted the study
along with graduate students Char-
lice Hurst and Lauren Simon.
"Smart people do better in their
careers because they are more likely
to be educated and are more confi-
dent in their abilities," Judge said.
Results of the study came from
191 men and women, ages 25 to 75,
who participated in the National
Midlife Development in the United
States study.


"You could be the most beauti-
ful teacher, but if you don't have
classroom management skills, then
students aren't going to care," said
Nadene Francis,
UF assistant director
Research of public relations
for the UF Career
Resource Center.
Intelligence standards for the
study were based on mental exer-
cises and tests, and self-confidence,
which was the second-most impor-
tant, was measured by a 15-question
survey about a person's ability to
handle life situations.


Attractiveness was judged on
personal photos on a one to seven
scale. Although it placed last against
intelligence and self-confidence,
beauty's importance in the job in-
dustry is still troubling, Judge said.
According toJudge, studies show
that attractive students tend to re-
ceive more instruction and attention
from teachers and are punished less
frequently, increasing their chances
of finishing high school and college.
"Beauty is key because society is
based on looks," said The Swamp
Restaurant manager Erika Equizi of
beauty and intelligence when work-


ing in the food industry. "Pretty girls
get more (tips)."
The results of the study, which
were published in the Journal of
Applied Psychology, emphasize the
need for employers to be fair when
hiring, Judge said. However, some
employers value neither intelligence
nor physical attraction as much as
personality and job skill.
"(Beauty's) not going to do you
any good," said Lynne Vaughan,
Reitz Union store director, of work-
ing in retail. "(Intelligence) won't
do you any good either if you don't
have the personality."

Web site sells Tebow-themed thongs to Gators fans


By JESSICA CHAPMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Women whose TV screens come
between them and UF's star quarter-
back now have one way to get closer
to the action Tim Tebow thongs.
TeeBow's, fashioned with the
Heisman Trophy winner in mind,
come in three styles, including a
thong with the number 15 written
on a football.
"We thought it would be a cute
idea," said Samantha Smith, a UF
senior and creator of TeeBow's."It's


not meant to offend anyone or get
Tim Tebow upset."
Before starting TeeBows.com in
December, Smith, 21, along with
family and friends, sold the under-
wear on West University Avenue
before football games during the
2008 season.
She said she came up with the
idea for TeeBow's when one of her
friends noticed her thong was hang-
ing out.
When Smith made a joke about
her "t-bow," referring to the bow on
her thong, she thought Tebow-trib-


"We thought it would be a
cute idea. It's not meant to
offend anyone or get Tim
Tebow upset."
Samantha Smith
Creator of TeeBow's

uted underwear might be popular
among adoring fans.
The Web site ran into copyright
infringement trouble in April when
the Collegiate Licensing Company,


which partners with UF, sent Web
site creator Kris Bates a cease-and-
desist letter for the Web site's photo
of Tebow. Due to NCAA licens-
ing laws, Tebow's photo cannot be
printed or sold.
Bates received an additional let-
ter from UF asking him to remove
the official UF logo to keep from
violating copyright laws.
Following the publicity from
the cease-and-desist letters and an
advertisement on digg.com, the
Web site went from six visits a day
to about 23,000 daily visits. The $6


thongs are only available for pur-
chase on TeeBows.com, Bates said.
Because Bates doesn't think Tee-
Bow's will be as popular after the
quarterback graduates, he said they
will most likely not continue to sell
them.
"If the Tebow family called and
asked us to stop selling them, we
would probably take it down," Bates
said. "The truth is, based on what I
know about Tim, he's probably get-
ting a chuckle out of this. If he is the
guy we all think he is, he's taking it
with a grain of salt."

SG names Supreme Court


* MICHAEL PATRONE AND MICHAEL
BREVDA WERE BOTH APPROVED.

By SARA WATSON
Alligator Writer

In the shortest Student Government Sen-
ate meeting of the summer so far, Senators
approved judiciary appointments and passed
resolutions before 9 p.m.
"My bedtime is 10 p.m., so I'd like to fin-
ish early," Parliamentarian Taylor Siegel said
at the beginning of Tuesday's meeting in an
effort to study and rest before his and Sen-
ate President Audrey Goldman's upcoming
LSATs.
The meeting quickly progressed to the Su-
preme Court appointments of Michael Patro-
ne and Michael Brevda, who were nominated
by SG President Jordan Johnson.
Sen. Ashton Charles, the judiciary chair
who reviewed the nominations, said that both
Patrone and Brevda demonstrated their abili-
ties to act in a nonpartisan manner.
Patrone was present at the meeting and an-
swered questions from various senators.
"My own personal beliefs need to be irrele-
vant when I'm in the court evaluating issues,"
Patrone said.
Job commitments in Orlando prevented
Brevda from attending Tuesday's meeting,
but he answered questions through a phone
interview on speakerphone so all senators
could hear.
Brevda highlighted his past work for Re-
publican Congressman Ric Keller to demon-


strate his nonpartisanship. Despite Brevda's
Democratic affiliation, he worked for Keller
and said he was asked to continue working
full time.
The Senate approved both Patrone and
Brevda.
In a press release, Sen. Nick Mildebrath of
the Progress Party noted that Brevda was ap-
proved unanimously, "a rarity for any court
nominee at UF."
Though Patrone's approval was not unani-
mous, Mildebrath said the Progress Party was
"extremely heartened to see that both parties
allowed a free, open and civil debate."
Tuesday's meeting also marked the pass-
ing of two resolutions. The first congratu-
lated Florida Alternative
Student Breaks, an organization
Government that focuses on social is-
sues like HIV/AIDS and
animal refuge through
student trips, for being named the National
Alternative Break Program for 2009.
The second resolution honored UF students
who died last semester. Copies of the resolu-
tion will be sent to families of lost students,
Charles said.
Johnson was not present, but Press Secre-
tary Eric Conrad attended on his behalf.
Conrad said Johnson is trying to attain
parking spaces for students in the Southwest
Parking Garage Complex, slated for comple-
tion in September.
"We're hopeful, but we're not completely
sure because of how distant this garage is how
many spots we're actually going to get," Con-
rad said.


Some oppose booting because of space


BOOT, from page 1


charge, a bill can include a stor-
age fee, a lien fee and adminis-
tration fees and taxes.
Booting incurs no additional
fees, he said
"In the beginning no one
wants [to be booted or towed],"
Witesides said. "But when they
think about not having to get a
ride to the towing company to
get their car, and it saves them
time and money, they always
agree booting is the better op-
tion."
When a car is booted, contact
information for Parking Solu-
tions is left on the windshield.
Company employees respond
within 10 to 15 minutes to re-
move the boot, Witesides said.
"We try to be fair as much as
possible," he said. "If someone is


illegally parked, and they come
back in a few minutes, we will
try to give them a break."
Mike Cook, manager of I Love
N.Y. Pizza, feels that booting will
do a better job of getting across
the message, he said.
"It does suck when people
leave their cars and they go to
school or the go to Swamp res-
taurant," he said.
However, some business peo-
ple in the area see downsides to
the policy.
Geyzer Salgado, manager
of Fritanga Latin Grill, opposes
booting.
He feels that Parking Solu-
tions is taking business away
from him when there are booted
cars in the lot versus removing
the illegally parked cars in front
of his business, he said.
Parking Solutions doesn't no-


tify people when they are illegal-
ly parked. The car can sit there
for 2 to 4 hours and possibly turn
away customers, Salgado said.
Filup Molina, manager of
How I Got An A, said he thinks
that people just don't know what
businesses go to what parking
lot, and people think they can
park here to go to any midtown
business.
"It's a bad way to treat cus-
tomers who do want to come to
our business," he said "It's the
classic power trip situation."
Ultimately, Witesides feels
that he is doing college students
a favor, he said.
"Everywhere is a parking
problem, towing is needed, if
you can get away with a cheaper
deterrent then why not help the
kids out a little bit," Witesides
said.


Flawed meters, emergencies

are valid excuses for appeal

COMMISSION, from page 1


According to Combs the
only five acceptable reasons to
appeal a parking citation are:
A malfunctioning meter
A valid or verifiable emer-
gency
If he or she is a govern-
ment employee or official on
official business, which allows
them to violate the time limit,
park in unauthorized parking,
etc.
If he or she is a city volun-
teer who was detained because
of their duties
If there was an error in the
issuance of the citation


Although a majority of
people reply within the time
limits, said Combs, the City
decided to rid people of a "dis-
advantage" they might have
by excluding weekends and
holidays.
Some people's reasons for
appealing a parking ticket in-
clude "there was no sign post-
ed at my parking spot" and
"the meter wasn't working."
"I had to turn a paper in to
the professor by 12 and had
no place else to park" is not an
acceptable reason to appeal a
parking citation, Combs said.

coffee culture


Coffee binge brings aversion, reflection & perspiration


JON SILMAN + AVENUE WRITER

With all the rabble between scientists and
media outlets over the benefits and dangers
of coffee, it's hard to know what to believe.
People on the left say it prevents cancer, and
other people on the left say it could give you
a heart attack. People on the right talk too, but
I don't listen to them. Like any red-blooded,
coffee loving fool, I decided to see for myself.
2:45 PM: According to naturalnews.
com, too much caffeine can lead to "chronic
adrenal failure." I decide it's better to stop
reading.
3:05 PM: The pure and unadulterated
joy that is Dunkin' Donuts coffee four
creams and two sugars.
3:06 PM: A man in cowboy boots
and mullet asks who sings "Hot Child in the
City." Steely Dan?
3:23 PM: "Celebration" comes on the gas
station speakers. I dance, then a short walk to
Bordersaroundthecorner. Handsalittleshaky.
3:30 PM: Borders was made for coffee
lovers. Cute barista with short hair offers "Vi-
enna Roast." Atmosphere: inviting. I feel like
talking, a lot. Apparently two cups of coffee
and I love the sound of my own voice.
3:45 PM: Very aware of my surround-
ings, to a meticulous degree. I feel warm.
3:57 PM: Bourbon Street Cafe on Archer
Road. Two stories on the outside, but only
one on the inside. Very misleading.
4:03 PM: Best cup yet. Immediate kick,
robust. Keep checking my head for my sun-
glasses. They're on the table in front of me.
4:04 PM: Note to self: Look up robust in
dictionary.
4:15 PM: On the road again. Note to self,
part two: coffee and country music go togeth-
er like peanut butter and jelly.
4:25 PM: Krispy Kreme, the most cul-
tured of all Gainesville coffee destinations.
Overweight couple orders three dozen
doughnuts, then joke about needing psychi-
atric help.
4:31 PM: Corner booth. Steaming coffee,
light and smooth. Holy crap it's hot.
4:37 PM: Do they heat this stuff with


lava? How on earth is it still piping hot? Seem
to have developed a twitch.
4:40 PM: "Shut Your Eyes" by Snow
Patrol comes on the overheads. It's now my
favorite song of all time.
4:44 PM: Slowly losing the ability to
form cohesive thoughts. I'm still thinking,
but it goes from should I order a dougnut to a
topless woman's soccer league. That one may
be gold, actually.
4:50 PM: Book Lover's Cafe. I love
smoking cigarettes. They should have a
smoke lover's cafe.
5:00 PM: Coffee ice cubes, genius!
Hazelnut blend in my hand, Strokes on the
speakers.
5:09 PM: Things are dicey. Lost, walk
by bathroom twice. In-house gardening book
distracts me for a while (15 seconds).
5:20 PM: I feel like I'm Alanis Morisette
in that video where she's naked and every-
thing's in fast motion but her.
5:47 PM: Coffee Culture on 13th Street.
Quiet in here. I'm afraid to speak and violate
the sacred silence.
5:55 PM: The cappuccino maker pierces
the lull with its hulky dissonance, where are
the coffee police?
6:00 PM: I have officially been rocketed
into the fourth dimension of coffee heaven...
hell?
6:02 PM: I'm sweating, a lot. I can't stop
using the facilities (euphemism).
6:15 PM: I understand what Kirk meant
in Star Trek when he said his body was leak-
ing.
6:30 PM: The sun is heading west. Time
to switch to the bike.
7:05 PM: I go by Norman through the
underpass onto campus. Past the French fries
to the Orange and Brew. Fail. Closed for the
summer. I sweat out some of this caffeine fe-
ver.
7:10 PM: Marching band in the distance.
The flag by the pond flails in the wind while
the birds echo their calls. It's so easy to miss
the quiet elegance of sundown when you
haven't had ridiculous amounts of caffeine.
7:24 PM: Deja Brew, back in the game.


Stephanie Granada / Alligator


I'm paranoid. Everyone's watching me. Do
they think I'm a spy or something? Do I think
I'm a spy or something?
7:30 PM: I can't make eye contact with
anyone without laughing. I think it's time to
go.
7:42 PM: I'm losing it. My mind that
is, not my sense of balance, that is in perfect
working order.On the way downtown, an
older, short Hispanic man holds a sign on
the corner of 13th Street and University Av-
enue. It says, "Jesus is coming, where will
you spend eternity?" I feel like if I could think
clearly, I would know the answer. I could tell
him, and he wouldn't have to stand out in
the sun holding that heavy sign. He could go
home.
7:52 PM: Volta. El Machete, washed.
That's the name of the coffee, seriously. I can't
even pronounce half of these coffee names.
Are they trying to make me feel stupid? It's
working. Congratulations, Volta, I feel stu-
pid. You have won.
8:02 PM: Emotional and mental fatigue.
A calm and alternately frantic disconnect
from reality. Strangely, I don't feel like any-


one is staring at me here, maybe they're too
involved in their own caffeine-induced psy-
chosis.
8:07 PM: I've developed coffee-goggles.
The portly girl outside the window is looking
deceptively attractive.
8:15 PM: Starbucks, downtown
Gainesville. Everyone knows this coffee; I'm
not going to say anything that will obliterate
preconceived notions. Outside table, I'm a
quiet observer. This town is alive with move-
ment and anticipation. A young couple walks
by, and I sense carnal purpose. I officially
concede to brain failure.
8:17 PM: The world has turned and left
me here. A ghost staring through a foggy
glass window, outside looking in and realiz-
ing your girlfriend is sleeping with your dad.
8:20 PM: I'm careful not to fall off the
earth as I cross the street to Maude's.
8: 22 PM: My last stop. I sit and burn
a cigarette. What kind of sycophant would
think this was a good idea? I feel absolutely
bat-shit insane. I'm going home.
8:23 PM: Note to self: Look up sycophant
in the dictionary.


'Taken' musters conversation


ERIK VOSS + AVENUE WRITER
In an effort to improve my conversation
skills, I've searched for a "universal ice break-
er" a topic so engaging it transcends barriers
of age, class and gender.
After a few weeks of group conversations, I
think I've found one.
"Taken" is a movie starring Liam Neeson,
who plays a retired CIA-operative who scours
Paris looking for his kidnapped daughter. In
the process, he kills just about everyone in the
city.
When my friend brought the "Taken" DVD
to a group movie night, I was skeptical. The film
went unnoticed when it hit the theaters earlier
this year: it was released in the no-confidence
month of January, and most critics dismissed it
as "too violent" and "without story."
But my god, the critics were wrong. By the
end of the night, you'd think it was an opening
night screening of "Lord of the Rings" lots
of cheering, jumping and high-fives. Even the
girls couldn't help getting into it.
"Liam just looked at that guy," someone
would observe. "That guy's so dead!"
Nine times out of 10, we would be right. Sec-
onds later, Liam Neeson would exit the frame,
leaving a half dozen unconscious Parisians.
What I love most are the random peo-


ple I've met as a result of this movie. Mention
"Taken" in a group setting, and you'll prob-
ably turn a few heads.
"Are you guys talking about 'Taken'? That
movie was nuts. Remember the part when..."
And the fans aren't just the college guys who
do shots during "24," worship Chuck Norris
and rave about those "three-wolf-moon" T-
shirts. Converts are everywhere.
At a party thrown by my parents, I quickly
struck up a conversation with a
n60-year-old retired Navy admi-
O n ral about the film. He told me
DVD about a real-life "Taken" situa-
tion in which he had to use his
connections in the CIA and the
FBI to track down his friend's daughter, who
was lost in Turkey.
I dropped the title again during a quiet
lunch with some fellow interns from work.
Immediately, a bouncy, "you-mean-we-can-
leave-the-sorority-house?" girl perked up on
the other side of the table and started raving
about it.
"Taken" has united the interests of griz-
zled military retirees and chirpy college girls.
Obama couldn't even do that. So see "Taken."
Rent it, buy it, download whatever's quick-
est. If you don't, Liam Neeson will throw you
off a building.


'We're all a little gay'


* ANNIE ANTHONY
AVENUE WRITER

* Pseudo-homos ones that pro-
claim to be straight, but have had at
least one homosexual experience. If
0 you ask them about an outer-hetero
experience, they will admit to it, but
soon after comes an "I'm not gay"
* or "I was just curious," or "I was so
drunk."
To illustrate, an article in the June
* 2009 issue of Glamour magazine
entitled "What Counts as Cheating
Now?" A woman explains how her
0 boyfriend came home one drunken
night and breezily elaborated that his
gay best friend had just performed
oral sex on him. His excuse was that
he was "throwing a dog a bone".
S What! Honey, to me there is a big-
ger question not "is he cheating?"
It's "is he gay?"
* So, what makes the girl that se-
cretly watches her best friend undress
in the locker room and the two drunk
* girls that hook up, anything less than
two lesbians?


The Kinsey scale attempts to sim-
plistically measure one's sexuality.
The test uses a scale of zero to six to
measure two extremes of sexuality. A
score of zero represents extreme het-
erosexuality, and a score of six repre-
sents extreme homosexuality. I took
a quick test online and scored a two.
That means that while I am mostly
heterosexual, I've been known to have
a girl crush or two.
Ironically, I respect the lesbian
manliness, strength and persever-
ance. Because sometimes it seems that
you just can't find it in the whirlwind
of liars and cheaters, or 'real men' as
they call themselves.
So, I understand how it can be
comforting to know that deep down
your partner is just like you. But me,
I love surprises, and I love that long
hard thing that males offer. I'm nei-
ther a true homo, nor a hetero. I am
a pseudo.
This little realization has made me
realize that now, more than ever, it is
important to see the beauty within,
because I see that it can come in any
size, color, shape or gender package.

Partner yoga renders positions to open the body, mind

REBEKAH GEIER + AVENUE WRITER


Balancing on hands, upside-
down, with feet planted on a part-
ner's back may not sound like a
typical Sunday evening. But for
those who seek new experiences,
relaxation and enjoy working up
a sweat, the week's finale might
bring just that.
This summer, UF's Department
of Recreational Sports is offering a
partnered yoga class, at 7:45 p.m.
Sunday at the Racquet Club gym.
The class taught by Tara Kala-
jian, 23, and Ashton Alexander,
21, is a group-fitness class that
provides one hour of bonding and
molding bodies into poses never
thought possible.
The department hosted it's first
partner-yoga class on Valentine's
Day, meant as a one-time promo-
tional event. But, the abundance
of positive feedback led to a per-
manent slot on the Recreational
Sports summer schedule.
The class begins with breath
centering, which is a form of pre-
yoga meditation, followed by a
series of Vinyasas a sequence of
poses meant to warm up the body
and create blood flow.
After 25 minutes of preparation
the fun begins as the class transi-
tions from individual practice to
partnered poses.
Working on one yoga mat, the
instructors demonstrate how to
properly get into, and stay in, the
pose without falling off one's part-
ner.
The tutors stroll across the
room frequently, ensuring the pos-
es are executed correctly to avoid
injury. They also guide students to
follow the yoga principles of prop-
er breathing and maintaining form
throughout the practice.


Partners are provided for any-
one without a partner, so single
yogis are welcome to the class too.
"We are all open minded here,"
says Alexander. "Just be sure to
get comfortable with that person
because you are going to be touch-
ing them."
New partners don't have a
choice when it comes to getting
comfortable.
Within minutes of meeting each
other, they will sit face-to-face,
spread eagle on the floor, holding
hands. For some, these actions may
seem far from
Only in relaxing and
Gainesville much closer to
an uncomfort-
able situation.
But the laughter and light
atmosphere of the class melts away
any awkwardness.
The benefits of partner yoga are
well recognized among the yogi
community. The added tension,
pressure and weight of another
body help sink each person into a
deeper stretch.
"You get that release with some-
one else's weight and support that
you can't do if you were just on
your own," Kalajian said. "It sup-
ports you not only physically, but
emotionally as well."
To get the most out of each
pose, instructors promote strong
communication among partners.
It is about being aware not only
of oneself, but also the feelings of
another. Alexander said there is
also a social and spiritual benefit.
"We live in a society where peo-
ple are very hesitant of strangers.
Partner yoga definitely helps break
the social barrier between people.
Some students come in without


Instructors Ashton Alexander, 21, and Tara Kalajian, 23, demonstrate how to properly execute the
seated twist pose with a partner.


a partner and leave having made
a new friend," Alexander said.
"Partner yoga gives people the
chance to get out of their bodies
and into their minds."
Although the class might seem
intimidating, there is no experience
needed to master partner yoga
work. All pupils need is a friendly
spirit and an open mind.
"Some positions look really
hard, but when you try them
they're not so scary," said Wenya
Wang, a UF physics graduate stu-
dent.


Partner downward facing dog,
for example, is a yoga asana so in-
tricate it appears to be a trick made
for acrobats defying gravity. But
much to the class' surprise, every
couple in the room was able to pull
off the pose elegantly.
The last five- to 10 minutes of
every class, students are rewarded
with a period of final relaxation, or
Shavasana, intended to rejuvenate
one's body, mind and spirit.
The instructors guide students
through a tour of the mind encour-
aging each student to watch his or


her thoughts.
"Forget about what you were
doing before, or what you're go-
ing to be doing later. Concentrate
on right now," Alexander instructs
her class. "Thank yourselves for
coming here tonight."
At 8:45 on Sunday evening, stu-
dents leave the class enlightened
and maybe a little sore.
Before they go, they are sent
off with one final note: The light
within me honors and respects the
light within you, or in yogi tongue,
"Namaste."

Community raises


funds for local man
KARINA GALVEZ + AVENUE WRITER


His face greeted customers at
American Apparel. He shopped
regularly at Wolfgang and became
one of the main faces of the store's
fashion show in the spring. He reli-
giously rode the bike he bought at
Spin Cycle and on some nights he
went out to Sharab Lounge.
Barry Bernard, 25, died in a
beach accident at Matanzas Inlet on
May 24, but his memory and legacy
will live on in Gainesville thanks to
the community and his friends that
have united to raise money for his
family.
On Thursday, Sharab Lounge
will host a silent auction for Ber-
nard's family. The lounge will also
donate funds collected from the
$5 cover fee on Friday from 8:30 to
10:30 p.m.
Gustavo Bonet, the general man-
ager at Sharab Lounge, said that im-
mediately upon hearing the news,
Sharab along with other local busi-
nesses organized the event.
The auction will feature items
from Wolfgang, salon products and
services, a year membership to the
Gainesville Gun Club and a dress
made by local designer, Bobby K.
"It's really great to see the com-
munity come together and do this


for a friend," Bonet said. "Sharab's
doors are open to any event in his
name and in his memory. Hosting
an event is the least we can do."
Sharab will open two hours ear-
lier than usual on Friday and some
of Bernard's favorite local bands will
play at the lounge.
In commemoration of Bernard,
the featured drink will be gin and
tonic, his favorite cocktail.
The proceeds will go toward fu-
neral costs and Bernard's girlfriend
and family to start a charity in Ber-
nard's name he always said he
wanted to go into social services.
Last week, Shooting Star restau-
rant raised money on their outdoor
deck bar with drink specials and live
bands. A portion of the sales went to
Bernard's family. Alcove Beer and
Wine Bar held a similar event.
Wolfgang held a 25-percent-off
sale all weekend and owner Mat-
thew Turner donated 25 percent of
sales to the family. There is a collec-
tion drawer at the checkout counter
of the store. Through both efforts,
the store has raised more than $600.
"Barry was one of my good
friends, a model in the fashion show
and a pretty regular shopper," said
Turner. "I felt it was necessary to


give back as much as he gave us."
The money raised will be used
to obtain emergency visas for Ber-
nard's family from Canada and
Haiti to attend the funeral.
On May 29, the monthly Critical
Mass bicycle ride was dedicated to
Bernard. Spoke cards with Bernard's


photo and initials were sold before,
during and after the race. Approxi-
mately $100 was collected from the
card sales.
Spin Cycle, 424 W. University
Ave., hosted a fundraising potluck
dinner at the bicycle store on May
27. Bernard frequently visited the


store and had a good relationship
with the employees.
"Barry was a close friend of the
shop," said Jacob Adams, the store's
general manager.
"It was a business relationship
that became a personal relation-
ship."

Gators sent home by


dominant pitching

UF couldn't hit UW's Lawrie


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

OKLAHOMA CITY Two nights
after triumphantly rounding the bases
and getting buried at the bottom of a
dogpile following her walk-off grand
slam against Alabama, Ali Gardiner
fell to her knees beside home plate
with her head in her hands.
Washington's Danielle Lawrie
struck out the senior first baseman
for the final out in the top of the sev-
enth inning, giving the Huskies a 3-2
win over the top-ranked Gators and
their first-ever national championship
Tuesday night in ASA Hall of Fame
Stadium.
Third-seeded Washington (51-12)
wasn't as dominant as it was in its
eight-run blowout victory Monday
night, but the Huskies were good
enough to keep the Gators (63-5) from
pushing the Women's College World
Series championship series to three
games.
Over the last two years, UF went
133-10, and the team topped many of


the marks it set last season in 2009,
including school records for team
batting average (.323), slugging per-
centage (.543) and on-base percentage
(.423).
This season, three players broke
eight single-season school records,
including runs (69, Aja Paculba),
home runs (18, Francesca Enea) and
slugging percentage (.713, Enea and
Kelsey Bruder).
But Washington, which was re-
sponsible for three of the Gators' five
losses this year, kept UF from achiev-
ing its season-long goal of a national
championship.
Unlike the teams' two previous
matchups, UF found some success
against Lawrie (42-8, 0.97 ERA).
The Gators managed seven hits off
the USA Softball National Collegiate
Player of the Year, three more than
they had in the last two meetings com-
bined.
But after the first inning, Law-
rie kept UF off the board, leaving 10
runners on base en route to an eight-
strikeout performance and her second

UF players stand with the runner-up trophy as the championship trophy is awarded to Washing-
ton after the Gators lost 3-2 in the Women's College World Series finals on Tuesday.


Nelson's demise hard to foresee


OKLAHOMA CITY
" H T indsight is 50/50."
That's what a room full of
Reporters heard from Arizona
and Team USA softball coach Mike Can-
drea after the Gators dominated the Wild-
cats in the opening round of the Women's
College World Series.
There was laughter, and everyone knew
what he meant, but I would argue that his
statement was more of a Freudian slip than
a verbal miscue.
Sure, blurry questions can come into fo-
cus afterwardss, but usually there is no cer-
tain way to explain previous happenings.
As I watched Stacey Nelson, the most
consistently dominant athlete at UF since I
came to Gainesville in 2006, unravel in the
final three games of the tournament, like
everyone else, I was searching for answers

back?


to burning ques-
tions.
Why doesn't she
look like herself?
Has she been
overused?
How could this
happen in the final
hours of her career?
Will she get it


Even after the scenario played out in
front of me, I have no concrete answers. I
look back on the last three games of Nel-
son's career with the clarity of my bedroom
before I slip on my glasses in the morning.
The same pitcher who carried the Gators
to a 133-10 record over the last two seasons
couldn't seal the deal and go out on top.

UF hosts Super Regional


* THE NO. 10 GATORS WILL
HOST SOUTHERN MISS.

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

Last weekend the Gators van-
quished a common foe. Now they must
get past an unfamiliar team to continue
their journey.
The No. 10 UF baseball team (42-20),
winners of the No. 8 national seed, will
host Southern Miss (38-24) this week-
end in a best-of-three Super Regional
with a College World Series berth on
the line. The Gators and Golden Eagles
will open play Saturday at 3 p.m. Game
2 will be play Sunday at 7 p.m., with
an if-necessary Game 3 scheduled for
Monday at either 1 p.m. or 7 p.m.
UF and Southern Miss, winners of
the Atlanta Regional, have never met in
the postseason and will be meeting for


only the second time ever.
It will be the Gators' first Super Re-
gionals appearance since hosting one
in 2005 en route to a trip to Omaha,
home of the CWS. Considering that UF
advanced out of a Regional contain-
ing Miami for the first time in 11 tries
last weekend, the optimism is high in
Gainesville.
"It's the first time I've been part of
a team like this," sophomore second
Baseman Josh Adams
said.
Junior center field-
er Matt den Dekker
Baseball added: "It's a special
group, we're looking
for big things to come."
If UF performs at the plate and on
the mound like it did last weekend, it
will have a good chance. The Golden
Eagles finished fifth in Conference USA,
although Southern Miss did defeat host

SThe field for the 2009 NCAA
Track Championships on

Tuesday. The Gators qualified 22

Teams and 16 named to the
preseason AII-SEC teams. The Gators
had five First Team All-America picks.

UF SOFTBALL


Departure of senior superstars leads to new challenges


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

OKLAHOMA CITY Replac-
ing the most storied senior class in
UF softball history won't be easy
for coach Tim Walton and the 13
other players on this year's team.
But due to injuries, a wealth of
talent and a few points this season
where Walton ran out a team with-
out a senior on the field, the future
is still bright for the Gators.
"The program itself will go for-
ward," Walton said. "Hopefully
we'll be able to get enough good
character and enough good play-
ers that will continue to build what
we're building."
The lineup will definitely look
different without Ali Gardiner
anchoring the infield at first, Kris-
tina Hilberth behind the plate,
Kim Waleszonia in center field or
Stacey Nelson in the circle, but UF
has enough young talent to remain
competitive on the national scene
next year and possibly make its
third straight trip to the Women's
College World Series.
The biggest change will be the
transition of Stephanie Brombach-
er from reliable backup pitcher to
everyday starter. The sophomore
is undefeated at UF and will face
the tall order of replacing Nelson


and facing other top pitchers.
Tiffany DeFelice will take over
for Hilberth to catch for her team-
mate since high school.


"Hopefully we develop Stepha-
nie and we'll be able to pass the
torch to her," Walton said. "We'll
get Tiffany behind the plate a little


bit more next year to help fill the
void, too."
Freshmen Michelle Moultrie,
Tuesday night's starting cen-


UF pitcher Stephanie Brombacher will have to take over the role as full-time starter for the 2010 Gators.
She is still undefeated during her time in Gainesville.


ter fielder, and Alicia Sisco saw
time in the outfield this year with
Waleszonia out for the majority of
the season with a fractured knee.
Both will likely start next season.
"I think we've developed Mi-
chelle Moultrie into at least be-
ing able to provide a lift," Walton
said. "Alicia Sisco could play on
any team in the country but just
couldn't find a way into this line-
up."
Kelsey Bruder, a natural in-
fielder who moved to first base
on a few occasions should make
the move to first a permanent one,
freeing up right field for Sisco.
The rest of the lineup should
remain intact with Aja Paculba at
second, Megan Bush at shortstop,
Corrie Brooks at third and Franc-
esca Enea in left field.
The speed of Moultrie and Sisco
will complement Paculba batting
leadoff, the versatility of DeFelice
and the dangerous power hitters
remaining in the lineup: Enea,
Bruder, Bush and Brooks.
UF will also add five freshmen:
Ensley Gammel, a pitcher from Ba-
kersfield, Calif.; Samantha Holle,
an infielder from Tampa; Kelsey
Horton, a catcher from Valrico;
Brittany Schutte, a utility player
from Fountain Valley, Calif.; and
Brittany Walker, an infielder from
Tomball, Texas.


KYLE, from page 24


Only three wins away from a championship, Nelson
owned an impossibly low 0.39 ERA and was coming off
shutouts against Arizona and Michigan.
She then gave up 14 runs in 16 innings against Ala-
bama and Washington on the way to a runner-up finish.
In her previous 269.1 innings this year, she allowed just 26
runners to cross home plate.
The Gators were still almost good enough to capture
the title as Ali Gardiner hit a walk-off grand slam off Ala-
bama ace Kelsi Dunne, and the offense put seven hits and
two runs on the board against WCWS Most Outstanding
Player Danielle Lawrie in Tuesday's final contest.
But this was supposed to be Nelson's time. UF wasn't
supposed to have to win games 6-5 and 4-3.
The best-kept secret of the entire tournament is that
Lawrie wasn't as good as advertised not even close.


Georgia scored 11 runs on the Olympian in two games,
and the Gators had a lot of success in the second champi-
onship matchup. Last year, UF beat player of the year An-
gela Tincher, who struck out 19 Gators, and First-Team
All-America pitchers Anjelica Seldon and Megan Gibson.
UF has proven that it is capable of beating pitchers of
Lawrie's caliber, but not without Nelson matching them.
What's even more confusing is that head-
ing into that nightmare stretch, the question ap-
peared to be if anyone could match Nelson pitch for
pitch.The right-hander seemed to be on a level that
even she had seldom tapped into over her career.
She was shutting out teams with a freakish regularity,
and she had the experience and poise to go all the way.
I'm not sure that anyone, including Nel-
son herself, can explain what transpired dur-
ing the stretch run of UF's 2009 campaign.
And no amount of time away from the situation will bring
that into focus.


Third straight shaky start by Nelson leads to loss


SOFTBALL, from page 24

straight victory against the Gators -
the team's first back-to-back losses
since March 31, 2007.
"There's a reason she's the Most
Outstanding Player of the tourna-
ment and probably the best pitcher
in the country and one of the best
pitchers in the world," UF coach Tim
Walton said. "It seemed like every
time we got somebody on base, she
revved it up another gear.
"The last two innings, she prob-
ably revved it up two more gears."
Lawrie said she was motivated
by comments made by Walton af-
ter she defeated the Gators in Palm
Springs, Calif., with a two-hit, nine-
inning shutout.


"One thing I did remember, and
that's when we played them in Palm
Springs and I feel fine saying this
- but I remember him coming out
and saying, 'My team is like a UCLA
or an Arizona,' after we beat them,"
Lawrie said. "I re-
member hearing
him say that and
not giving us any
recognition for
how we played."
The Gators
scored early a
vast improvement
from only swinging at one pitch in
the first inning Monday night put-
ting up one run after Paculba tripled
and ran home on a passed ball, UF's
first run of the tournament that did


not come off a home run.
They added another when Kris-
tina Hilberth reached on an error,
moved to second on an infield single
by Enea, stole third and scored on
Megan Bush's sacrifice fly.
But Washington immediately re-
sponded, stringing together three
hits off pitcher Stacey Nelson (41-
5, 0.61 ERA), who had her third
straight shaky start in the circle.
The senior gave up six hits and
two earned runs in the final six in-
nings of her college career.
"Losing sucks, especially on this
stage," Nelson said. "There is a lot
of pain that comes with the loss, but
I'm always going to remember my
time at Florida as the best time of
my life."


Offensive outburts take

pressure off pitching staff

BASEBALL from page 24

Georgia Tech twice in three days in last weekend's
Regional.
While the Gators have not yet announced Satur-
day's starter, lefty Stephen Locke is coming off one of
his best career starts against Miami in a 8-2 victory.
Locke (5-2, 4.02 ERA) went 7.1 innings on Saturday
and gave up only two unearned runs.
The pitching staff likely felt even less pressure
last weekend with UF's offensive explosion in two
games against Miami. The Gators scored just eight
runs against the Hurricanes in the early part of the
season but matched that total in just Saturday's game
and finished with 24 runs in two games.

"Once this team starts hitting, it's kinda
hard to stop us."
Josh Adams
UF second baseman

A big part of the attack was freshman first base-
man Preston Tucker, who hit .692 and had two HR
and six RBIs to earn Regional MVP honors. But it
became a total team effort as UF racked up 22 hits
in Sunday night's Regional-clinching victory, tying
a school postseason record. Every Gators starter ex-
cept Avery Barnes had multiple hits.
"When one guy's seeing the ball, he'll come back
in the dugout and say it looks like a beach ball to
them," Adams said. "Next thing you know, the next
guy hits a double. Once this team starts hitting, it's
kinda hard to stop us."
