Donors swap



pints of blood



for ice cream

By SHELBY NEICHOY 7
Alligator Contributing Writer

Giving blood never tasted so good.
This week, local LifeSouth Community Blood Centers are of-
fering a free pint of Blue Bell ice cream in exchange for blood do- -
nations to cope with the summer slump.
"UF students account for 20 to 25 percent of our donations,"
LifeSouth community development coordi-
Around nator Clay Gibbons said. "And when school
Gainesville lets out for the summer, we notice a signifi-
cant decline."
After donating, participants will receive a coupon that is re-
deemable at stores carrying Blue Bell ice cream.
The 'Pint for a Pint' drive will run through Sunday at Life-
South's two Gainesville locations, 4039 Newberry Road and 1221
NW 13th St., and at the Alachua donation center.
Rosemarie Gann, who has donated blood in the area for 30
years, stopped by a local center to give blood Monday.
"I want my donations to be sent to the children," Gann said. Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff
As for her free pint of ice cream, Gann was pleased but wasn't Clay Gibbons, community development coordinator for LifeSouth Community Blood Centers, holds a coupon for
aware of the promotion beforehand. "I would have come any- a free pint of Blue Bell ice cream in front of a refrigerator holding units of donated blood on Monday. LifeSouth
way," she said, "but it makes it a good day to come." centers in Gainesville are giving the coupons to blood donors this week.


Students settle financial


dispute on court television


By SHELBY NEICHOY
Alligator Contributing Writer

Two members of the Gator Nation will square-
off over a party foul on national TV today in a pre-
recorded episode of "Judge Joe Brown."
Felipe Martinez, 21, successfully sued Chris
Carlo, 23, in the judge's California courtroom for
$2,872 in damages to his '98 Chrysler Concorde.
Martinez attends UF, and Carlo is a former stu-
dent.
On Jan. 23, the defendant, Carlo showed up
to Martinez's birthday party uninvited. Carlo
got drunk, climbed onto Martinez's Chrysler and
stomped, breaking the windshield and leaving
flip-flop prints on the black car's hood, according
to a press release.
After going to small claims court in Alachua


County, Martinez decided to take the case to
Judge Brown to claim $2,872 in damages.
Carlo remembers nothing of the event and said
Martinez exaggerated the costs of repairing the
car, according to the release.
The show paid for the damag-
es, which is partially why the
litigants decided to participate,
Martinez said.
After all the conflict, Marti-
nez reports there are no hard
feelings.
Martinez "It's no big deal," Martinez
said. "We can all make mis-
takes when we get drunk. I am not going to hold
a grudge."
The show will air on Gainesville's WAWS
(Fox) Channel 30 at 7 p.m., the release stated.


Trustees approve


tuition hike for fall


* BRIGHT FUTURES WILL
NOT COVER THE INCREASE.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

Students will likely pay about 16
percent more for classes this fall af-
ter UF's Board of Trustees approved
the increases at Friday's meeting.
The board approved the maxi-
mum tuition hike under the state's
differential tuition plan, which al-
lows a 15 percent increase each year
until each of the state's 11 public
universities reaches the national av-
erage.
The increase, which the Board
of Governors is expected to ap-
prove this week, is not covered by
the Bright Futures scholarship pro-


gram.
The board also approved fee in-
creases and the implementation of a
new technology fee.
Matt Fajack, UF's chief financial
officer, also briefed the trustees on a
new budget model that will change
the way colleges within UF are
funded.
The new model, being imple-
mented as a result of the budget
crisis, makes costs more transparent
and rewards certain benchmarks.
"It's really based on how produc-
tive you are-the number of (student
credit hours) you teach, the number
of students that are enrolled in your
program, the amount of research
you do, the ability to be creative and
come up with entrepreneurial rev-
enues," Fajack said.

71-year-old man banned from campus after poking student's butt


A 71-year-old Gainesville man was
banned from campus Wednesday after he
poked a 21-year-old female UF student in the
butt three times at Library West, according to
the University Police Department.
Marion Danzy allegedly poked the stu-
dent three times in the span of about a min-
ute and then left the library, at which point
the student contacted library security, ac-
cording to police.
The incident occurred around 7:30 p.m.


An officer caught up with Danzy minutes
later outside the library, where he was identi-
fied by the student and banned from campus
for three years. Danzy spoke poor English
and might have been homeless, said UPD Of-
ficer Chris McIlrath.
The student declined to press charges, so
UPD will not forward the case to the state at-
torney's office. No other students reported
being touched by Danzy.

with the addition of a memorial
garden for cancer victims.
The Garden of Hope will be
a place for patients, their friends,
families and the public to relax,
said Ted Kruljac, Shands Health-
Care office development associ-
ate.
"The idea is for people to have
that escape. You have patients
who have been going through
treatment and need that time to
reflect, meditate and experience
the spiritual side of healing," he
said.
The garden will be a lush,

according to Ellen Shapiro, a
member of the Garden of Hope
Marketing Committee.
"It's a garden for the whole
community," she said. "We're
really hoping the community
will use it."
The garden will feature a

The garden's cost is estimated
at $250,000, Shapiro said. Develop-

by donors who purchase plaques
for the memorial wall, commemo-
rative benches and trees.
The garden fund has grown to
more than $90,000, mostly from
fundraisers called garden parties,

of 2008.

Harn Museum


exhibit displays


abstract artwork


By PATRICK ANNESTY
Alligator Contributing Writer

"Rediscovering Slobodkina:
A Pioneer of American Abstrac-
tion" will debut today at the
Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art,
showcasing the work of Esphyr
Slobodkina.
One of the first female Ameri-
can abstract artists, Slobodkina
produced more than 500 works
of art including the famous chil-
dren's book "Caps for Sale."
Running through Sept. 6, the
exhibit will showcase 66 works
including paintings, drawings
and abstract constructions made
with dissembled everyday items.
Dulce Roman, the museum's
modern art curator, said the exhi-
bition was chosen to commemo-
rate the recent purchase of Slo-
bodkina's "Mural Sketch No. 1."
"The modern collection has
so few works by women artists,
making this an especially won-


derful acquisition for the muse-
um," she said.
Roman said the Harn lent the
piece to the traveling exhibit be-
fore it could even be displayed in
the museum.
The exhibition also displays a
few of Slobodkina's major works
from the 1940s including "Cross-
road No. 2," on loan from the
Smithsonian Amer-
Local ican Art Museum.
News In 2002, two
years before her
death at the age
of 93, Slobodkina established
the Slobodkina Foundation to
showcase her works. The tour-
ing exhibit is organized by the
foundation in conjunction with
the Heckscher Museum of Art in
Huntington, N.Y.
The first guided tour of the ex-
hibit will take place Sunday at 2
p.m., followed by a more formal
lecture on the life and works of
Slobodkina.

Police find body in bushes

He was reported missing on Thursday


Gainesville police are awaiting the autopsy
results for a man whose body was discovered
near Northwest 23rd Avenue Monday morn-
ing.
At about 10 a.m., people walking on North-
west 23rd Avenue saw two legs poking out
from under bushes near the intersection of
Northwest 23rd Avenue and Northwest Eighth
Street.
When they arrived at the scene, Gainesville
Police Department officers found the decom-
posing body of Robert Ware, 50, in front of Bet-
ty Hilgendorf Real Estate, 738 NW 23rd Ave.


GPD Lt. Mike Schiboula said the police are
waiting for the autopsy results, which will be
available later today. Schiboula said no foul
play was suspected.
Schiboula said that Ware lived in Gator Vil-
lage, 321 NW 21st Lane, near where his body
was found.
He said that Ware lived with a roommate
who reported him missing Thursday night.
His roommate said that Ware had some
health conditions that authorities are looking
into, Schiboula said.

SG tweets to student body


* SKEPTICS SAY TWEETING WON'T
LEAD TO MORE TRANSPARENCY.

Since Friday, Student Body President Jor-
dan Johnson has been "tweeting" at the student
body.
"This is a way for any student to see where
their money is going every minute of the day,"
Johnson said in a press release.
Johnson said the Twitter postings, which
came about a month after Student Senate Pro-
Tempore Suzanne Hershman's Twitter debut, is
a departure from former closed-door attitudes.
"Both of these developments are just the be-
ginning of how I see my administration working
to improve student life while at the same time
being accessible to the public," Johnson said.


Casey Barrett, a history major at UF, said she
is unsure of how effective Twitter use will be.
"I don't think this will lead to any more
transparency, to be honest,"
Barrett said.
While some students enjoy
using and following Twitter,
she said, it is not something
widespread enough to affect
the majority of students.
"I don't even look at my
best friend's Twitter. There's
no way I'm going to look at
student government's," she said, laughing.

CITY GOVERNMENT

City Commissioners discuss budget cuts with locals


ByJANAI.HALL
Alligator Contributing Writer
George Elmore has attended
city hall and town hall meet-
ings for 37 years, but he says
this one was not like the rest.
"Most people in attendance
came to preserve what they
have," Elmore said, referring
to the 5 percent budget cut the
city will have to make in the
upcoming fiscal year. "The de-
clining revenue base is tough
for all of us."
The City Commission host-
ed a special town hall meet-
ing Monday night in District
4. Commissioners received
input from about 35 residents
on the 2010 fiscal year budget
and the 10-year Evaluation and
Appraisal Report of the City's
comprehensive plan.
Although residents' main
concern was the city's budget
cut, the City Commission lis-
tened to local opinions on top-
ics such as land use, design and
redevelopment, transportation,
the environment, quality of life


and economic issues, all sub-
categories within the report.
Resident Melanie Barr
thought the meeting was pro-
ductive.
"The City Commission was
very attentive to what we had
to say," she said.
Barr said she also found the
process enlightening.
"The City Commission

"It was difficult to come up
with answers because we know
that cutting programs means
people lose jobs," she said.
"We got to see what the City
Commission does on a regular
basis."
The town hall meeting was
held at the United Church in
Gainesville.
Monday's meeting was the
last in a series of four held
around Gainesville.

Man gets life in prison for parking garage shooting


* HE KILLED A MAN AFTER THE UF-
FSU FOOTBALL GAME IN 2007.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
kemmets@alligator.org
After a three-day murder trial, a
Gainesville man was sentenced to life in pris-
on for killing Tallahassee resident Andrew


Arosamena in the Downtown Gainesville
Parking Garage about a year and a half ago,
hours after a UF FSU football game.
The Nov. 26, 2007 shooting occurred on
the second floor of the Southwest Downtown
Parking Garage near Market Street Pub.
At about 2:20 a.m., a blue car was block-
ing traffic on the garage's exit ramp.
Arosamena rolled down the passenger-
side window of the car he was in and yelled
at the driver to move. Nelson, who was


talking to people in the
blue car, walked over to
the car Arosamena was in
and shot him in the head,
Mann said.
Okpara Nelson, 23, was
charged with two consecu-
tive life sentences for first-
Nelson degree murder and armed
burglary, at about 6 p.m.
Friday at the Alachua County Courthouse.


Co-defendant Antwan Maye, 26, offered
a no contest plea shortly after the shoot-
ing, said State Attorney's Office spokesman
Spencer Mann.
After entering the plea, Maye was sen-
tenced to four years in prison on charges of
accessory after the fact to first-degree mur-
der, tampering with evidence and aggravat-
ed assault with a firearm, Mann said.
As part of Maye's no contest deal, he had
to testify against Nelson in the trial.

Season to bring fewer

shows due to budget


By MONICA VIGO
Alligator Contributing Writer
Although one UF program is used
to drama, a potential $90,000 budget cut
might be a tough act to follow.
Like other departments, the UF Per-
forming Arts program is facing a 10 per-
cent cut, which could possibly cost the
program $90,000.
With about 50 scheduled performanc-
es, the Phillips Center for the Performing
Arts will be offering fewer shows this sea-
son to keep costs within the budget range,
said James Kersey, assistant box office
manager.
The program started reducing produc-
tions about two years ago to prepare for
possible cuts, said Elizabeth Auer, assis-
tant director of the center.
To keep production diversity through-
out the season, the center cut one perfor-


mance from each genre to avoid eliminat-
ing any one particular branch of the arts.
"It is important to us that we still offer a
broad range of styles to create options for
everyone attending," said Auer.
This season, the center will be bring in
well-known musicals such as "Hairspray"
and "Cats" in addition to "Avenue Q," a
2003-debuting musical that pokes fun at is-
sues like drinking and porn.
On Although event tickets
Campus range from $30 to $50, with
the help of Student Govern-
ment, performing arts tickets
will be available to UF students for $10 in
the upcoming season. General tickets will
go on sale June 18 while student tickets
will be available starting Aug. 3.
Marketing coordinator Marilyn Patrick
said in order to reach more students and
improve ticket sales, UF Performing Arts
will be creating a Twitter account this fall.

Tragic Endings

Murder-suicide not the

answer to financial woes

Tragedy struck suburban Orlando on Monday with
news of a murder-suicide claiming the lives of a
Heathrow family.
John Wood, 41, shot and killed his wife and two chil-
dren before taking his own life in their posh gated commu-
nity. Sadly, what may appear as eye-opening news for most
neighborhoods could be deemed commonplace in Central
Florida.
According to an article in the Orlando Sentinel, there
have been at least six murder-suicides in the region since
Jan. 1. Three took place within a 10-day period in May.
While there does not appear to be a common thread link-
ing the cases, the Wood family's financial woes may have
triggered the unfortunate situation.
Forced to find a new job at a sporting goods store, Wood
filed for bankruptcy in 2004 and was set to appear before
an Orlando court in August to hash out his fiscal status. On
top of the patriarch's financial misgivings, Cynthia Wood
recently lost her job. The story of the Wood family's un-
fortunate struggles echo a tale currently being lived out by
countless families across the country.
Simply put, times are tough.
For a man to give up hope and end the lives of his wife
and young children speaks of an individual who let fi-
nances dictate the course of his life. There is no denying the
fact that the ability to find inner peace while struggling to
balance a budget demands persistence and determination.
But as dire as one's situation may seem, the selfish act of a
murder-suicide should never be rendered a viable option.



Decisions, Decisions


W hile wondering
what midtown
bar you should
visit on Friday evening re-
mains a bigger Gainesville
no-brainer than taking an
online course, pondering
where to move post-college
could be deemed almost un-
answerable.
From the co-creator of
Flikr comes a new Web site
bound to provide sound re-
sponses to even your most
trying questions.
Enter Hunch.com, stage
left.
Once you and Hunch be-
come acquainted over a pro-
verbial whiskey or two (aka
a series of 20 questions), the
site offers help in answering
pressing questions such as
what type of car you should
purchase.
The Editorial Board gave
the site a whirl and had our
Opinions Editor determine
where he should go on va-


cation, conveniently disre-
garding the fact he is cur-
rently drowning in a sea of
graduate school debt.
After making a few re-
sponses to indicate certain
criteria he enjoys (alcohol,
unfortunately, was not an
option), Hunch recom-
mended taking a trip to Chi-
cago. Interestingly enough,
he plans on taking a trip
to Chicago come August,
so perhaps, dare we say,
Hunch is on to something.
Let's be frank for a sec-
ond. The site in no way
should be used to determine
whether you should accept
your college boyfriend's
marriage proposal. Hell,
guest columnist Matthew
Meltzer should have han-
dled that decision for you.
Nonetheless, Hunch offers a

Franken deserves seat in U.S. Senate


I sure hope that Minnesota can get used to being a
congressional amputee.
Ever since the state's controversial November
election, a legal battle has ensued over who won the
rights to a seat in the U.S Senate.
At first it seemed that Norm Coleman, a Republi-
can, had eked out a victory. But an automatic recount,
triggered by the small margin of victory, found come-
dian Al Franken to be the winner. The state Canvassing
Board met and affirmed Franken's victory. The matter
has been taken to the Minnesota Supreme Court and a
ruling should be handed down soon.
The smart money is on Franken.
Of course, none of this is to say that Minnesota is
remotely near electing a senator. Coleman has indicated
that he is willing to take this matter all the way to the
U.S. Supreme Court.
I'm at a loss to fathom the depths of poor sportsman-
ship that are driving Coleman to these extremes. Have
the memories of the invective heaped upon Al Gore
when he retracted his concession already faded from
Republican minds? It seems so.
Interestingly enough, the results of a recent Minne-
sota poll indicate that 64 percent of Coleman's constitu-
ents actually favor his concession.
An equally high percentage of Minnesotans expect
his defeat, whether they want it or not. Furthermore,
Coleman's numbers are weak even when only Repub-
licans are polled.
The message is clear: A majority of Minnesotans be-
lieve Coleman should bow out gracefully.
I'm impressed by the tenacity of the man once
dubbed the "fourth most corrupt senator." In the digni-


Eric Chianese
letters@alligator.org


fied body that housed Ted Stevens,
that is quite the accomplishment.
Coleman only wants what's right
for Minnesotans and is determined
to do everything in his power to
ensure they receive that most pre-
cious gift: himself. He will pursue
this course of action, even to the
point of abusing the democratic


process.
All of this is fair, though. Coleman has the right to
throw a hissy fit and sue. That's one of the benefits of
the American political system. When an election out-
come is too close to call, a candidate can can turn to the
judicial process rather than resorting to riots and vio-
lence. The only problem is that, ordinarily, there should
be some evidence of foul play to support judicial media-
tion. Simply saying "no fair" because you lost is both
absurd and pathetic.
Don't expect this situation to be resolved anytime
soon. There is a lot at stake. If Franken wins, the Demo-
crats will have their filibuster-proof 60 seats. And, de-
spite the general trend of public opinion, Norm Cole-
man does have a core group of support. They will stick
with him to the bitter end, which may come in an Ala-
mo-style last stand in front of justices Antonin Scalia,
John Roberts, Ruth Ginsberg and the rest of the merry
pranksters. Coleman has decided to fight, and will, but
he should consider one thing:
Is his obstinacy even remotely in the best interest of
Minnesotans? This observer doubts it.

Iranian youth rely on Twitter to inform world about elections


Abdul-Azim Mohammed was pro-
viding a play-by-play of the Iran
Election early Sunday morning.
Azim first reported that local police sta-
tions had been forced to burn ballot boxes
filled with votes for Mir-Hossein Mousavi,
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's presidential
challenger. A few minutes later, Azim de-
clared that Internet access and phone lines
had been cut off. Later, Azim's reports of
people filling the streets of Tehran were
verified with BBC footage showing legions
of angry young Iranians chanting "Death
to the Dictator" in the streets.
Azim was on a roll.
In less than two hours his Internet fol-
lowers had grown from just a handful to
more than 2,000 fans checking in for real-
time updates of the growing tension caused
by a widely suspected rigged presidential
election in Iran. His report that his brother
had seen riots breaking out in northeast
Iran was as eerie as his report that the Ira-
nian government was claiming that power


failure and cell phone tower outages were
caused by maintenance on the city's elec-
trical grid. Then, reports of sirens in his
neighborhood hindered the number of
times Azim could give the world a glimpse
into the electoral drama unfolding across
Iran. Shortly after the sirens had passed his
street, Azim told his audience that he was
using an illegal satellite dish as his connec-
tion to the outside world and wrote one
last post, "I have to shut down for a bit, the
police are looking for satellites."
That was Saturday at 6:14 p.m. EST.
Abdul-Azim Mohammed is not a pro-
fessional journalist. Azim is a 22-year-old
college student living in Iran's capital city,
and much like his western counterparts,
he's a fan of the social messaging Web
site Twitter, where for more than three
hours early Sunday morning he sent out 31
tweets, or mini messages, about the state
of Iran in the aftermath of its presidential
election upset.
While it should be noted that Azim's


identity cannot be
verified, there are
millions of young
Iranians just like him
taking to the streets
across Iran protest-
Matthew Christ ing the supposed
letters@alligator.org electoral landslide
that President Mah-
moud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian Interior
Department and the Ayatollah Ali Khame-
nei are all claiming.
What the protestors are claiming is
vastly different than a landslide for Ah-
madinejad. Many believe fraud. Still, an
anonymous female Iranian journalist in an
interview with Radio Free Europe castigat-
ed outside observers who called the elec-
tion a fraud. "There was no fraud; it was a
coup," she told her interviewer.
Whether it is a coup or an unexpected
election upset, none of the powers-that-be
in Iran could have predicted the influence
of the Millennial Generation. When their


votes were discounted, the young Iranians
showed up to polling places in record num-
bers. And when the government confiscated
NBC and ABC cameras and yanked foreign
visas, they never predicted the young Ira-
nians would take to Web sites like Twitter
and organize protests and mass exoduses
to rooftops in the night to shout Allah Ak-
bar, or God is Great. Interestingly enough,
the last time such an ordeal happened was
in 1979 when the Shah skipped town after
another young generation of Iranians took
to the streets.
As black smoke clouds the Tehran sky-
line and young Mousavi supporters orga-
nize more protests from Twitter and Fa-
cebook, one has to wonder if the mullahs
and the Iranian old guard underestimated
the power today's instant technological
communications can play in democracies.
Perhaps revolutions are, technically, gen-
erational.

Mayor wants to cut


price on Depot project


narrison ulamona / Aigaior biarn
Burke Bender, of Bender & Associates Architects, speaks about the Depot Building project to
the Community Redevelopment Agency at City Hall on Monday.


By JIMMIE PAUL
Alligator Contributing Writer

It may cost $1.5 to $2.3 million to re-
construct Gainesville's historic Depot
building, a long-term city project locat-
ed just south of downtown.
But Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan, who
has been a long-term proponent of the
project, said its price was too steep at
a Community Redevelopment Agency
meeting Monday.
Burke Bender, of Bender & Associ-
ates Architects, provided the estimate.
"I think it's a little crazy to spend $2.3
million to reconstruct a depot building
that cost us $80,000," Hanrahan said.
The money would go toward restor-
ing Gainesville's oldest train depot,
and the large price tag includes money-


saving sustainability standards, Bender
said.
While she hopes to cut the project's
budget, Hanrahan still believes it is
worthwhile.
"I think it's a little crazy to
spend $2.3 million to recon-
struct a depot building that
cost us $80,000."
Pegeen Hanrahan
Mayor

"Purchasing and investing in the
Depot is an excellent investment," she
said. "Gainesville was actually formed
as a hub on the rail line, which was
key to the development of the state of
Florida."

During the next few weeks, expect to see
Florida football players seated in the front,
not the back, of local police cruisers.
In four years, the UF football team has
racked up 21 arrests, including nine felonies,
and three citations. In light of these num-
bers, the University Athletic Association and
Gainesville Police Department partnered to


Football players can volunteer to attend a
ride-along with GPD officers between 5 p.m.
and 4 a.m., the department's busiest hours,
said GPD spokesman Lt. Mike Schibuola.
"Students get arrested every weekend,
but student-athletes get more attention," he
said, adding that the arrest rate is similar for
both groups. According to Schibuola, about
25 students are arrested every weekend, usu-
ally for possession of alcohol by a minor or
underage drinking.
In April 2007, former offensive guard Ron-
nie Wilson was arrested on charges of battery


Felons in Gunsville, Fla. to
be used by Gator critics.
Wilson reportedly spat
on someone outside of a
Gainesville nightclub, took
an AK-47 assault rifle out
of the trunk of a car and
fired it into the air.
After two charges for
Jenkins marijuana possession and
a misdemeanor for battery and assault, Wil-
son was kicked off the team.

Steve Russell, radio personality for AM
850's "Sport Scene," feels the arrests of Flor-
ida football players has been sensationalized.
"In the summer, stories that might not be
a big deal in the heat of competition become a
little more blown up because there is nothing
going on," Russell said.
Still, Russell does not excuse the rate of UF
football player arrests.
"Bottom line, there are probably too many,
and it is the head coach's responsibility to
help make it better," Russell said.

UF will now be able to consider skill and education level when making layoffs


TRUSTEES, from page 1


"It is an extremely rational approach," said
Trustee Al Warrington, "that I think we as
trustees should demand and require."
UF President Bernie Machen, however,


said if it wasn't for budget cuts, he'd rather
stick with the status quo.
"We are not a business; we are an academic
institution," he said. "But it would be naive of
us to sit here and not recognize that we need to
pay attention to the way other entities, includ-
ing businesses, operate."


Trustees also approved a change that will
make it easier to lay off staff.
Instead of only being able to
State consider length of employment
NeWS and performance evaluations
for some staff layoffs, UF will
now be able to consider other factors, like skill


and education.
Paula Cunningham, an office assistant in
agronomy, told trustees she didn't think staff
members were properly notified of the pro-
posed change, which, she argued, will erode
the job security of "thousands of UF's most
dedicated employees."

Nelson named to USA Softball Women's National Team


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

After representing her
school for four years, Stacey
Nelson will move on to repre-
sent her country.
Nelson, who holds nearly
every UF softball pitching re-
cord, was one of 18 players
named to the 2009 USA Soft-
ball Women's National Team
and one of 16 named to the
Japan Cup team on Monday
after spending a week at the
team's selection camp in Chula
Vista, Calif.
Although cautiously op-
timistic about her chances of
making the national team dur-
ing the camp, Nelson remained
as humble as ever about the
experience of competing for a
roster spot.
"All the pitchers here are
so fantastic that I kind of feel
like I'm at the bottom looking
up," Nelson said in a phone
interview Thursday. "But it's
such an honor just to be here
and to get to pitch to hitters
like these."
The selection camp was Nel-
son's first time on the diamond
since Washington swept UF in
the Women's College World
Series championship series.


"It's kind of helped get my
mind off the loss and every-
thing," she said. "That was a
long week without softball.
It's nice to get back on the field
again."
Nelson struggled in her final
three college games, giving up
an uncharacteristic 10 earned
runs while the Gators suffered
their first back-to-back losses
since March 31, 2007.
The bitter end to an other-
wise outstanding career fur-
ther motivated
SNelson to prove
herself dur-
ing the selec-
Softball tion camp. By
earning a spot
on Team USA,
Nelson joins an elite group of
pitchers.
As it did in 2008, the nation-
al team will carry five pitchers:
Nelson; Monica Abbott, who
holds the NCAA records for
the most wins and strikeouts;
Katie Burkhart, the Most Out-
standing Player of the 2008
WCWS; Cat Osterman, who is
tied for sixth with Nelson in
career wins (136); and Jennie
Finch, arguably the most fa-
mous softball player ever.

Horschel misses cut in


PGA Tour tournament


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer

Before Billy Horschel's first-ever PGA
Tour event, he attempted to downplay
the huge adjustment necessary to make
the jump from college to professional
golf.
"It's just the same as my four years in
college," the former UF men's golfer said.
"Even though the level of play is higher,
you are still playing the golf course."
However, Horschel might have un-
derestimated some growing pains that
come with a promotion to the profes-
sional ranks. This past weekend, he
missed the cut in the St. Jude Classic and
was eliminated after the second round
with a score of 4 over par.
After a first-round score of 1 over
par, he struggled with his putting in the


second round, shooting 3 over par and
missing the cut by three strokes.
UF men's golf coach Buddy Alexan-
der acknowledged the acclimation peri-
od the former UF golfer will experience.
"Obviously he's disappointed and I
was disappointed for him, but I think it's
not totally surprising," Alexander said.
"That's a different level. That's a whole
other ball game when you move up to
play in PGA Tour events."
But if Horschel wants some inspira-
tion, he will not have to look far. Former
UF men's golfer Camilo Villegas entered
the PGA Tour in 2004 and missed the cut
in his first event with a score of 9 over par.
Now, according to Golfweek, Villegas is
the 13th best golfer in the world. Also,
former Gator Brian Gay won the St. Jude
Classic by five strokes.

UF logs two top-10 finishes

Men place second; women come in ninth


By JESSICA ETTER
Alligator Writer


The goal for the Gators was simple:
win a national title.
After successful runs at the NCAA
East Regional and the Southeastern Con-
ference Championships, the NCAA Out-
door Championships was the last meet
for both UF teams this season.
The Gators didn't meet their desig-
nated goal.
Though the NCAA Championships,
held in Fayetteville, Ark., may not have
ended the way the Gators wanted, Hol-
loway and the Gators did not walk away
empty-handed.
The men's track and field team tied for


second with Florida State and Oregon,
all with 46 points, and the women's team
placed ninth with 23 points.
Texas A&M won both the men's and
women's team titles.
"Our goal was to win a national cham-
pionship," Holloway said. "Though we
fell short of that goal, it has been a very
successful season for both teams."
Junior Mariam Kevkhishvili won the
women's shot put with a throw of 58-
4.50/17.79m. Kevkhishvili won this event
at the NCAA Indoor Championships as
well as the SEC Championship and the
NCAA East Regional this season.
The men's 4xl00m relay team went
into the event with the fastest time all

Sports fanatics face lull


As the final seconds of
Game 5 ticked off the
clock, it was a bittersweet
moment.
While I had predicted a five-
game Lakers victory in the NBA
Finals more than a month prior,
it also marked a transition into
one of the emptier portions of the
sports calendar.
The neverending great sports
moments of March, April and
even May seem so far in the
rearview mirror.
Baseball is now the only one
of the four major sports still in
progress.
(Don't kid me that I'm sup-
posed to already start getting
worked up about football season.
UF's two-a-days are still nearly
two months away, and I couldn't
care less about preseason NFL ac-
tion.)
I'm also more of a Tampa Bay
Rays fan than a true MLB fan, so
now I just have one team to be
passionate about, although thank-
fully they are trying to make this
easy on me, having won their last
five games.
But perusing the rest of the
summer sports calendar is an ex-
ercise in futility.
Watching college baseball on
television is 100 times worse than
watching pro ball on TV, and
that's bad enough as it is.

games.
Wimbledon usually can carry
the load for two weeks, but it
looks to have lost its luster if Ra-
fael Nadal is hampered by a knee
injury.
Don't worry there's also
several NASCAR Sprint Cup
races. I mean, you couldn't pay
me to watch one of those, but I'm
sure dozens of fans will be ea-
gerly sitting by their televisions
somewhere.
So it looks like golf will be the
saving grace.
While Tiger Woods' perfor-
mance at last year's U.S. Open is
an experience that probably can't
be topped, watching the greatest
golfer ever is always something
I enjoy. He will try to repeat at
Bethpage this weekend, and then
the British Open and PGA Cham-
pionship will have to carry my
non-baseball sports viewing for
July and August.
It doesn't look good.
C'mon Rays, my fate is in your
hands.

"There is a certain learning
curve and a certain comfort
level that he will have to work
on," Alexander said. "He will
learn from this and be better


the next time out."
According to Horschel's
Twitter page, the next time
out might come in the Fort
Smith Classic. He is currently
attempting to qualify for the
event, which is part of the
Nationwide Tour, a devel-


opmental tour for the PGA
Tour.
"For the first time, it's his
occupation, and he knows
if he plays well and makes

Magic, Rays stories eerily


similar after tough defeats


n Oct. 22, I was at Tropi-
cana Field for the Tampa
Bay Rays' first-ever World
Series game.
My friend, who generously of-
fered his family's extra ticket to
me, still pokes fun at me for the
stupid grin I had on my face for the
first eight innings of the game.
Sure, the Rays were on their way
to a 3-2 loss, but I was just happy
to be there on that big of a stage,
wondering how I even got there.
Fittingly, over the next week,
I watched my team look just as
happy to be there as I had been,
and the Rays came away with their
first-ever World Series defeat, a 4-1
romp at the hands of the Phillies.
Eight months later, as I watched
Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles
Lakers win Game 5 of the NBA Fi-
nals against the Orlando Magic, it
all felt a little too familiar.
Not because Phil Jackson won
his record 10th championship,
not because Kobe won his fourth
ring celebrating it like Michael
Jordan did, standing on stage and
waving four fingers in the air -
and not because Adam Morrison
probably cried at some point.
It was because my team just
looked happy to be that deep into
the postseason, and for the second
time in a year, a central Florida
team full of young talent fell 4-1 in
a championship series.
Neither team was predicted to
even make it as far as they did. The
Magic should have fallen to either
the defending-champion Celtics or
LeBron James and the Cavaliers,
and the Rays were a classic worst-
to-first story.
Like Carlos Pena and Evan
Longoria, who went hitless in the
World Series until Game 5, Dwight
Howard and Rashard Lewis disap-
pointed in the Finals.
Howard supposedly announced
his presence as a superstar with his
outstanding performance in Game
6 of the Eastern Conference Finals,
when he did what all the great
players have done: put his team on
his back and carried it to victory.
Although he led all players in
rebounds in four out of five Finals
games, he was his team's top scor-
er just once, matching Lewis' 21
points in Game 3, the Magic's only
win in the Finals.


It was
also the fran-
chise's first
champion-
ship victory,
breaking the
Adam Berry curse of Nick
Bad News Berry "the Brick"
aberry@alligator.org Anderson,
whose four
missed free throws against the
Houston Rockets in Game 1 of the
1995 Finals forced Orlando to wait
14 more years for its first win in a
championship series, a short eight
months after the Rays got theirs.
While the ultimate demise of the
Rays and the Magic can be traced
to a number of issues a lack of
experience, sub-par performances
by their best players and key role
players not stepping up, to name
a few both suffered from what I
call a "championship moment in a
non-championship game."
For the Rays, I thought it was
rookie pitcher David Price step-
ping onto the mound to close out
Game 7 of the ALCS against the
Red Sox.
When Akinori Iwamura stepped
onto second base for the final out,
the resulting celebration was like
that of a world champion.
For the Magic, it was the six-
game dethroning of King James
and the Cleveland Cavaliers,
capped off by Howard's playoff
career-high 40 points.
The best example of this con-
cept was Ali Gardiner's walk-off
grand slam against Alabama in
the Women's College World Series
semifinals. It was such an emotion-
al moment, such a high point for
the team and its fans. It was like
the climax of a story.
Unfortunately for all three
teams, the subsequent falling ac-
tion was finishing as a national
runner-up.
When the unprecedented, mi-
raculous runs to the championship
ended for the Magic and Rays,
both immediately started to talk
about next year.
But with the Rays fighting to
stay above .500 and the Magic po-
tentially losing several key players
to free agency, there's another sim-
ilarity: They'll both be even hap-
pier to be there if they find them-
selves back in the title hunt in the
near future.


Pitcher's first international competition with overhauled squad will be Canada Cup in July

ple like Jennie Finch at first base
rooting you on when you're pitch-
ing and just being on the field
with athletes I've heard about for
years and years and years," Nel-
son said.


Although the players at the se-
lection camp were among the most
talented in the nation, Nelson de-
scribed the competition among the
41 athletes vying for roster spots
as "more laid back than you'd
think."
"(The competition) doesn't
really carry over off the field be-


cause everybody's really nice
here and being complimentary of
everybody else's skills," Nelson
said. "On the field, it's a little bit
laid back, but everybody's trying
to do their best."
Softball is no longer an Olym-
pic sport, but Nelson and Team
USA will compete in the Canada


Cup in Surrey, B.C., and the World
Cup in Oklahoma City in July.
With only eight returning play-
ers from the 2008 Olympic team,
Nelson is part of a new generation
of talent that will represent the
U.S. in international competition
through three different teams.
Three other Southeastern Con-


ference players were named to the
national team with Nelson: Chel-
sea Bramlett of Mississippi State
and Ashley Holcombe and Brit-
tany Rogers of Alabama.
The USA Softball Japan Cup
team, a separate entity from the
