Pastor: Sign



will stay up

ByJENNA EZELL
Alligator Contributing Writer

About 125 people of diverse religions, ages and rac-
es gathered in front of the Dove World Outreach Center
Wednesday evening for a prayer vigil in response to a
sign recently posted by the center.
The sign reads "Islam is of the Devil" and was
placed Sunday in the church's front lawn. It was van-
dalized and torn down that evening but was re-erected
on Monday, said Terry Jones, the pastor at the church.
Nicolette Guerrero, a UF sopho-
Around more who was present at the vigil,
Gainesville said she came to send a message to
the church that posted the sign.
"If we keep going on with this,
maybe they won't post another one," Guerrero said.
Jones said that the church, located at 5805 NW 37th
St., does not plan on taking down the sign, and that
more messages will be displayed in the future.
"We think we are losing our heritage as a Christian
nation," Jones said as one of the reasons the church put
up the sign.
Jones said Islam's growing popularity in the United
States needs to be addressed because Christians are not
standing up for what they believe in.

The Florida Bright Futures Schol-
arship Program will not raise funds
to cover the tuition hikes coming this
fall after undergoing several changes
made by the Florida Legislature.
When UF increases its tuition from
$125.91 per credit hour to $145.76 per
credit hour, Bright Futures will con-
tinue to award $126 per credit hour
to Academic Scholar winners and $95
per credit hours to Medallion Scholar
winners, according to the Bright Fu-
tures Web site.


Jim Newman, right, pastor of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Gainesville, holds a sign while leading fellow protest-
ers in a prayer outside the Dove World Outreach Center. Newman and more than 100 others lined the street outside the
center during a vigil held in opposition to a sign at the center.


UF ACADEMICS

Intern fired for plagiarism


By BRITTANY DAVIS
Alligator Staff Writer
bdavis@alligator.org

After plagiarizing passages from The
New York Times in four of her news stories,
a UF student was fired Tuesday from her in-
ternship at The Colorado Springs Gazette.
Rising junior Hailey Mac Arthur could
face expulsion from the College of Journalism
and Communications if the college's investi-
gation confirms the plagiarism, said William
McKeen, chair of the journalism department.
Mac Arthur formerly wrote for The In-
dependent Florida Alligator and interned at
The Gainesville Sun.
Journalism and Communications Dean
John Wright said in an interview that journal-
ism students are repeatedly warned against
plagiarism.
"For the life of me, I don't see how this
kind of thing could happen in this day and
age," he said. "Even if the person felt com-


pelled to do something so dishonest... I'm
totally baffled."
News of the firing reached blogs and The
Associated Press stories by Tuesday night.
Some journalism professors received e-mails
about the incident on Wednesday morning,
prompting them to quickly and firmly an-
nounce the college's stance against plagia-
rism in classes and on Facebook, Twitter and
blogs.
"For the life of me, I don't see how
this kind of thing could happen in
this day and age."
John Wright
Journalism and Communications Dean

Tuesday afternoon, Wright posted on his
Facebook status, "One thing is certain. Pla-
giarism will not be tolerated at the College of
Journalism and Communications."
SEE PLAGIARIZED, PAGE 12


Students will now have to pay UF
the difference of what Bright Futures
doesn't cover, said Rick Wilder, asso-
ciate director for UF Student Finan-
cial Affairs.
This will cost students who once
received 100 percent tuition about
$237 per semester if they are regis-
tered for 12 credit hours, the mini-
mum amount of credit hours required
to be a full-time student, he said.
Florida Prepaid and other forms
of financial aid can be used to cover
the difference in costs, he said.

Fine Print earns title of Best New Publication from national organization


The Fine Print, a progressive maga-
zine designed for UF students, was
deemed Best New Publication of the
Year by Campus Progress Wednesday at
a conference in Washington, D.C.
Speakers included former president
Bill Clinton, Speaker of the House Nancy
Pelosi, "The Daily Show" writer and cor-
respondent John Oliver and White House
green jobs adviser Van Jones.
"This award is just complete valida-


tion for what we've been doing," said Jes-
sica Newman, co-editor of the magazine
and UF journalism senior. "It's quite a
shock. It's been really inspirational."
Along with co-editor Lydia Fiser,
Newman decided to start The Fine Print
to use as a sounding board for students to
express their thoughts and "build a uni-
fied force," she said.

STUDENT LIFE

Machen wants less booze sold at U


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

If UF officials have their way, it may be a
little harder to get drunk at the next UF-Geor-
gia football showdown, which has been held
in Jacksonville since 1933.
Officials, including UF President Bernie
Machen, have asked Jacksonville to imple-
ment a number of changes for this year's
game, many of which will affect The Jackson-
ville Landing, a strip of restaurants and shops
on the Jacksonville waterfront, and other areas
populated with fans from the game.
The requests include limiting the number
of people at the Landing to levels approved
by the fire marshal, halving the number of
locations that sell alcohol, banning the sale of
shots, increasing enforcement of alcohol laws
and sponsoring places for students to go in-
stead of the Landing, among other requests.
According to a Landing spokeswoman, an
unfair proportion of the changes focus on the
strip where fans flock to party before and after


the game.
The requests were included in a letter sent
late last month to Jacksonville Mayor John
Peyton.
Machen and UF's Vice President of Student
Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin signed the letter,
which says that little progress has been made
in preventing the conditions that caused two
student deaths, one in 2004 and in 2005.
Both students were intoxicated and had be-
come separated from their friends because of
the crowds, the letter stated.
Also, citing budget cuts, the letter asks that
the city pick up the entire tab for the student
safety zones where students can get things like
food, medical attention and directions.
UF has paid about $11,000 a year to run its
share of the zones, which includes costs for ho-
tel rooms for the 20 to 25 UF volunteers who
staff the zones, according to Dave Kratzer,
UF's associate vice president for Student Af-
fairs and Capt. Jeff Holcomb, University Police
Department spokesman.
Adam Hollingsworth, chief of staff in the
Jacksonville mayor's office, said the city is re-


searching how feasible UF's request

$15M building to accomodate seven UF departments


* IT IS SCHEDULED TO BE
COMPLETED IN APRIL.

By ALEX CHACHKEVITCH
Alligator Writer

A ceremony Monday will offi-
cially kick off construction on a new
administrative building on UF's
Eastside Campus.


Construction of the office build-
ing began last week and is scheduled
to be completed in April, according
to Ed Poppell, UF's vice president
for business affairs.
The total cost for the three-story,
82,000-square-foot building will be
about $15 million.
Poppell said the building will
accommodate seven UF adminis-
trative departments, including the


Florida Center for Library Automa-
tion, Division of Continuing Educa-
tion and Public Health. In addition, it
will provide about 300
On new jobs within the
Campus departments housed
in the building.
The new jobs will contribute to
economic revitalization efforts in
East Gainesville, Poppell said.
The structure is part of UF's plan


to expand the Eastside Campus.
The building will also be Gold
Certified, the second-highest sus-
tainability standard set by the Lead-
ership in Energy and Environmental
Design Green Building Rating Sys-
tem, according to a press release.
Poppell said the College of En-
gineering and other workers devel-
oped ideas for the structure as early
as 2001 after UF acquired the prop-


erty. Actual construction planning
didn't start until about six months
ago.
President Bernie Machen will
speak at the ceremony along with
Poppell, City Commissioner Scher-
win Henry and County Commis-
sioner Rodney Long.
The ceremony will be held at the
construction site, 2124 NE Waldo
Road., at 9 a.m. Monday.

Art display features


feathers from Brazil


By PATRICK ANNESTY
Alligator Contributing Writer

Ceremonial items, which were
seized as illegally exported goods
made from endangered species,
are on display at the Samuel P.
Harn Museum of Art.
On Tuesday, the museum de-
buted its "Voicing Indigenous AR-
Tifacts: Amazonian Featherwork"
exhibit, showcasing nine pieces,
including headdresses, masks and
necklaces used by six Brazilian na-
tive groups as ritual adornments
and social status symbols. The ex-
hibit runs through Sept. 15.
The Ham's Director of Public
Relations and Marketing Tami
Wroath said that while presenting
the artifacts as works of art, the
museum will also highlight the is-
sue of the illegal trade of wildlife
products.
The nine exhibit pieces, made
from feathers of endangered spe-
cies, were part of a seizure of more
than 2,500 Amazonian objects by
the United States Fish and Wildlife
Service in 2003. Wreath said the
objects were exported in violation
of five international and domestic


treaties.
"In May of 2005, the confiscated
objects were donated to the Florida
Museum of Natural History under
the condition that the collection
would be used for educational
purposes," she said.
"The material culture of
indigenous people de-
pends on a number of spe-
cies that are considered
endangered."
Sonia Duin
Anthropology graduate student

Anthropology graduate student
Sonia Duin will give a presentation
July 19 at 3 p.m. that will discuss
how the objects were used in Ama-
zonian culture and the problems
that arise from illegal exportation.
"The material culture of indig-
enous people depends on a num-
ber of species that are considered
endangered," she said. "Feathered
accessories in particular are a criti-
cal element of how native peoples
interact with their social and reli-
gious world."

Pace picks up at Reitz with incoming freshman class


* AT LEAST 2,500 MORE STUDENTS
ARE ENROLLED DURING SUMMER B.

By ABBIE PARKER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students may have been able to hear a
pin drop in the Reitz Union during Summer
A, but things are picking up, with an event
scheduled nearly every day of Summer B.


According to the Office of Admissions,
at least 2,500 more students are enrolled in
Summer B than Summer A. This is because
freshmen do not have the option of starting
UF before Summer B.
According to the Reitz Union Board Pres-
ident Kristen Huff, clubs and organizations
would rather spend money when students
can reap the most benefits.
According to Reitz Director of Opera-
tions Mike Mironack, some organizations'


budgets force them to choose between spon-
soring activities Summer A or Summer B,
Mironack said.
"Our budget doesn't cover for us to have
activities Summer A and Sum-
On mer B," Huff said. "If we could
Campus have more events, like in Sum-
mer A, we would."
"If there wasn't anything
going on at the Reitz, I would probably
just stay home and watch TV," said Lauren


Mayo, a freshman who lives on campus.
Mayo attended the Summer with RUB
Entertainment comedy show at the Reitz Fri-
day night, which was followed by a show-
ing of the recent comedy film "I Love You,
Man," and a concert featuring local bands.
"[My roommate and I] go to campus
events when we hear about them," Mayo
said.

Editorial

Darts & Laurels

n case you missed the Michael Jackson memorial concert on,
you know, every channel ever, the Department of Darts &
Laurels would like to point out that it was a hell of a show.
Everyone from Brooke Shields to John Mayer to "random
politician we had never heard of" showed up to pay their re-
spects and relate how Jackson touched them (over the clothes
only) during his mysterious and abbreviated life. Overall the
service was appropriately at the nexus of "celebratory" and "re-
spectful."
Oh, and then there was the Rev. Al Sharpton.
For talking about the deceased pop star like he was Martin
Luther King Jr. and Jesus all rolled into one, we would like to
tactfully place a cork, or at least a claiming-Obama-got-elected-
only-because-of-"Thriller"-takes-hyperbole-to-a-whole-new-
level DART into the mouth of the Reverend in hopes that he
will keep his patently overblown theories and hallucinations to
his radio talk show (ironically titled "Keepin' it Real").
Howard Monoian was a WWII hero in Sainte-Mere-Eglise,
France where a plaque was erected in his honor. Too bad he
spent the entire war behind the front line. Monoian, who fre-
quently boasted of his bravery in combat, has been exposed as a
fraud at the ripe old age of 84.
Military records obtained by the Boston Herald reveal that
Monoian spent most of the war monitoring a supply dump. His
biggest injury? A broken middle finger. In England. On standby.
For undermining the bravery of the troops who actually para-
chuted into the midst a fierce battle, the Editorial Board would
like to extend a we'll-show-you-a-middle-finger-or-six DART
to the deceitful D-Dayer.
To complete the triumvirate of similarly-themed condem-
nations, the Editorial Board would like to send a why-are-you-
destroying-the-credibility-of-our-college DART to Hailey Mac
Arthur, the UF journalism student who blew up the AP wire
with accounts of her plagiarism. Not only did Mac Arthur cre-
ate a stigma against our beloved J-School (thanks, because as if
finding internships wasn't hard enough already, now we come
from 'that school'), she disappointed the peers and professors
who previously held her in high esteem. And, not only did Mac
Arthur foolishly disregard advice from professors (you know,
about telling the truth and stuff), she disregarded common
sense (stealing from The New York Times must have seemed
like a great idea since no one ever reads that.)
At a time like this, it's important to commend good, solid
journalism. For that, the Editorial Board would like to hand a
congratulatory LAUREL to the staff of The Fine Print. Jessica
Newman and Lydia Fiser, the publication's editors, recently re-
ceived the award of "Best New Publication of the Year" from
Campus Progress, the nationally recognized non-profit.
For us, the thought of Gator Growl does not conjure the best
of memories. For listening to a student poll and selecting Dana
Carvey to be in the 2009 performance, we would like to extend
a tentative here's-to-hoping-this-will-be-'excellent!' LAUREL to
the Gator Growl staff. Seriously guys, if this is as bad as the last
two years, we might go into post-traumatic stress. Now if only
we could get one of the bands that was slated to be at Wayne-
stock, we might be in good shape.
Because people who pay more than a dollar for a serving
of the most abundant resource on Earth might need a little bit
more than common sense to send them in the right direction,
the Department of Darts & Laurels would like to send a time-to-
call-our-parents-and-tell-them-to-set-an-embargo-on-bottled-
water-at-our-houses LAUREL to both the Government Ac-
countability Office and the Environmental Working Group.
Working in conjunction with each other, the two groups are
pushing for Americans to make bottled water a "distant sec-
ond choice" to filtered tap water. Apparently, the differences
between the two are nill, despite previous misconceptions that
Zephyrhills flows directly from Mt. Olympus into the bottle
(passing under the feet of unicorns, of course).
That's all for this week. Stay safe and don't drink the Kool-
Aid (if it's made with bottled water).

Machen's requests overstep boundaries
Recently President Machen sent a letter to the city of Jack-
MS sonville outlining key changes that need to be made by the
city for the annual UF-Georgia game to continue being held
in Jacksonville.
As a 27-year-old student I am outraged at one of the
stipulations: the ban on liquor shots. With all due respect to
President Machen, who does he think he is? Trying to be the
moral authority for students who are of legal drinking age
and not in Gainesville let alone on campus, is absurd and
ludicrous.
It's one thing if the president of the UF wants to curtail
what goes on at the campus, it's a whole other issue when he
tries to regulate what students do when they are nearly 100
miles away in another city.
Machen has overstepped his bounds as an administrator
of a higher-learning institution to a level I don't think has
been seen before. So what's the end game here? Will Ma-
chen single-handedly end a longstanding tradition because
he didn't get his way, like a child who takes his ball home
because he didn't get picked for the game?
I hope the city of Jacksonville has enough fortitude to tell
this guy, "You will not tell us what to do in our own city."
Moreover, I hope I am not alone in my outrage when it
comes to the university (particularly Machen) telling me
what I can and can't do outside of school, especially when
it's not reckless or illegal.
If Jacksonville succumbs to Machen's pressure it will
likely set the precedent for his moral authority agenda to
have an ever wider local effect.

Students base performance on experiences in Rwanda


By STEVE JOHNSON
Alligator Writer


A man is separated from his
wife.
As he desperately tries to come
to her aid, she is raped and beaten
by citizens of her own country.
Her screams of pain subside,
and she gives up.
One final blow to the head
ends her life, and her husband,
helpless, is left with the memo-
ries of her final gaze of despera-
tion.
This is one of many stories
students from the UF's School of
Theatre and Dance re-created in
"Where Can We Run? Use Your
Words!"
The educational performance
was inspired by the people of
Rugerero, a 500-person vil-
lage near the western border of
Rwanda. The actors performed
to 105 people when the show
opened Wednesday in the sold-
out McGuire Pavilion's Black Box
Theatre. The performance runs
until Sunday.
After a two-week trip to
Rwanda, the students in the play
were able to recreate the stories
of the 1994 genocide that left 80
percent of the country without an
immediate family member and
56 percent of children witness to
a killing, according to the United
Nations Children's Fund. The
performance includes portions of
a documentary made on the trip.
In March, four students from
the School of Theatre and Dance
and six nursing students traveled
to Rugerero. In a town hall meet-
ing, UF representatives asked if
they could share knowledge on
health care, theater and art with
the villagers.

"We were thrilled that our
idea fit their interest," said Jill
Sonke, director of the Center for
the Arts in Healthcare Research
and Education. "It was an incred-
ibly warm welcome and really
touching to be well-received in
another culture."
Prior to the trip, the UF stu-
dents raised money to provide
health insurance to the villagers
at $2 a year per person.
For the next two weeks, volun-
teers taught the villagers hygiene
techniques, such as how to avoid
infection and clean wounds.

"There is no way to de-
scribe how we felt after the
trip. It was very life chang-
ing and very moving."
Rachael Jones
UFjunior & performer

Through acting, villagers ex-
pressed emotions about their
past and gained an appreciation
for art and theater.
"It took a lot to assimilate to
the recent history of genocide in
that culture," Sonke said. "I think
they learned that theater is really
fun, and engaging in creative ac-
tivities can enhance your overall
well-being."
UF students also learned much
from the people of Rwanda.
"There is no way to describe
how we felt after the trip," said
Rachael Jones, a UF junior and
actress in the performance. "It
was very life changing and very
moving."
In the theater, audience mem-
bers learn how genocide reshaped
Rwanda and about the estimated
800,000 who were killed in just
100 days, according to PBS.org.


Steve Johnson/ Alligator Staff
Audience members talk to actors in a question-and-answer session after "Where Can We Run? Use Your
Words!," a play telling the stories of Rwandan genocide survivors.


"The underlying theme of this
whole thing is not just an hour
and 40 minutes of watching,"
said Nick Greene, a senior in the
School of Theatre and Dance and
actor in the performance. "It's a
learning experience."
The performance parallels the
genocide in Rwanda to the killing
of 36 school children in Chicago's
South Side in 2009. The actors
compare the widely overlooked
killings to cases such as the death
of Caylee Anthony in Central
Florida, which received national
coverage.
"Hopefully, we'll have some
eye-opening experiences for ev-


eryone," Jones said after her per-
formance. "I think it will be hard
for audiences to not be moved in
some way."
The performance concludes
with a question-and-answer ses-
sion between audience members
and the cast.
"I was very impressed by the
individual performances by all
of the actors," said Chase Den
Beste, a sophomore telecommu-
nications major. "I immediately
went on Facebook and invited all
of my friends to go see it."
The director, Mikell Pinkney,
hopes the play will help people
understand the healing involved


after the Rwandan genocide.
"This is definitely a time for
enlightenment and awareness,"
Pinkney said. "We're going to
have to go through that process
to forget about the past and move
ahead to live in peace and har-
mony."
Tickets are $14 for the general
public and $10 for students and
senior citizens. They can be pur-
chased at ticketmaster.com or at
the University Box Office located
in the lobby of the Constans The-
atre. Nightly performances will
run until Saturday at 7:30 p.m.,
with matinees at 2 p.m. on Satur-
day and Sunday.

City may raise property taxes to help with budget


* THE ADJUSTMENT COULD
GENERATE ABOUT $1.5 MILLION.

By SHELBY NEICHOY
Alligator Contributing Writer

City Hall may depend on money from
property owners to handle its budget short-
falls, which was announced during a press
conference held Tuesday afternoon con-


cerning the 2010 budget.
"In January of this year we began to re-
assess our expenditures and our revenues,"
City Manager Russ Blackburn said, "And
we saw... that we were going to be experi-
encing some fairly significant changes from
what we expected."
As a way to counteract the estimated
$7.2 million deficit, Blackburn recommend-
ed raising Gainesville property taxes.
The proposal included increasing the


millage rate from 4.2544 to 4.5297. This will
raise property taxes by $41 per year for an
owner of a $200,000
Gainesville City home. The city esti-
Commission mates that the adjust-
ment will generate an
additional $1.5 million.
A small increase in property tax may
mean big adjustments for some large prop-
erty owners, according to George Edwards,
owner of "Gainesville Apartment and Con-


dominium Guide."
In order to counteract increasing costs,
property owners may raise rental rates.
"As costs are increased, owners have to
do something to make up the difference,"
he said.
Edwards said the city needs to come up
with other ways to deal with the deficit.
"I think this is a bad idea," he said. "The
government should learn to live within
their means like you and I have to."


Church posted sign to preserve Christianity from Islamic influence


SIGN, from page 1


"To be a Christian, you would
have to agree with that sign," Jones
said.
He said the sign is not meant to
attack individuals but to attack the
religion of Islam because it is op-
pressive and violent.
Leila Aamir is one of several
Muslims who attended the vigil.
She said she came to the United
States two months ago from Paki-
stan to give her children a better
life.
She attended the vigil because
she wanted to show that Muslims
are not hateful, but peaceful and
loving, she said.
"Like Christians we also hate
the devil," she said. "We are not of




Custo wino-W Xint0


the devil."
Ismail ibn Ali, president of Is-
lam on Campus at UF, said in an
e-mail that he hopes non-Muslims
who read the sign will Google "Is-
lam" and see what the religion is
about before making judgments.
"Even though they are allowed
to post a sign based on our beloved
First Amendment, this is not an ac-
tion which brings understanding
and only misinforms people about
the religion of Islam," Ali said.
He said he hopes everyone who
is offended by the sign will peace-
fully ask the Dove World Outreach
Center to remove it.
"I am glad to see that people
from other religious backgrounds
are also deeply disturbed," he
said.


Eve MacMaster, pastor at Em-
manuel Mennonite Church who
organized the prayer vigil, said she
wants people in the community to
know most Christians do not agree
with the message that the Dove
World Outreach Center is sending
by posting the sign.

"I really thought the sign
represented hate speech,
bigotry and racism."
Scott Camil
United Voices for Peace member

"It troubles me that my faith
is represented by such a negative
message," MacMaster said.
She said she sent an e-mail
about the vigil to her congrega-


tion, members of Campus Minis-
try Cooperative, pastors from local
churches as well as personal Jew-
ish and Muslim friends.
"We decided that the most ap-
propriate response was to meet in
prayer," she said.
She is concerned for the people
in the Gainesville community as
well as the congregation and pas-
tors of the Dove World Outreach
Center, she said.
"It's not a good thing for our
community to have a sign that
shows that much hatred," she
said.
The sign was brought to Mac-
Master's attention by a fellow
member of United Voices for
Peace, Scott Camil, who received
a call from a woman in tears after


seeing the sign, Camil said.
She called after the police had
told her that it was a matter of free
speech and nothing could be done
about the sign, he said.
"When she told me what the
sign said, I couldn't even believe
it," he said.
He said he believes there should
be tolerance for different types of
people and religions and doesn't
understand why a church would
post that type of sign.
Like MacMaster, Camil said he
is concerned about the sign's effect
on the community and said he be-
lieves it is below the community's
standard for decency.
"I really thought the sign rep-
resented hate speech, bigotry and
racism," he said.

Pharmacy students will be required to buy iPhone


By SHAY BRODERICK
Alligator Writer


Enrolled in UF's College of Phar-
macy? There's an app for that.
This year, incoming students
in the College will notice that their
school-supply shopping list is a bit
more expensive than previously.
Beginning fall 2009, all incoming
PharmD students will be required to
have an iPod touch or an iPhone.
UF is the second school to imple-
ment the requirement, following
the University of Missouri's May
decision, according to AppleInsider.
com.
"These are the instruments at the
forefront that are developing appli-
cations for medical uses by the hun-
dreds," said College of Pharmacy
Dean William Riffee, an iPhone user.
"We want our students to become
adept at using these mobile devices
early on because we see this as the
future in pharmacy practice."
Pharmacists in the future will
rely on these devices to access pa-
tient medical records and verify pre-
scriptions, he said.
Caitlin Dickens, a second-year
pharmacy student, also sees the ad-


vantages of having an iPod touch in
the classroom.
"It holds enough information to
fill a dictionary, but it fits in your
pocket," she said. "I can see how it
would be useful to have a hand-held
computer with you at all times."
Still, Dickens said she is grateful
that she is already enrolled in the
program and


will not be mandated to buy one of
the devices.
"To me, it'sjust an added expense
that I would have to pay along with
graduate tuition rate," she said.
The iPod touch starts at $229,
and the iPhone
starts at

incoming students in the UF pharmacy school beginning
in the fall semester. They will be used to run applications
such as Epocrates (pictured) as learning tools.


$99 with a new AT&T contract.
Thomas Munyer, a professor in
the department of pharmacothera-
py, said he believes the new technol-
ogy will help in the classroom.
Students will use iPod touches
or iPhones to participate in in-
teractive quizzes during class
and download free applica-
tions that will help first-
year pharmacy students
learn the names of various
drugs, Munyer said.
He also said the col-
lege is developing a
simulated patient that
students will be intro-
Sduced to at the begin-
* ning of class. Students
will receive updates
and messages about
the status of the pa-
tient and its thera-
py throughout the
semester.
"The primary
learning objec-
tive here is to
help our students
learn the process
of caring for and moni-
toring patients over different
periods of time," Munyer said.


Lauren Wadsworth, a UF senior
who will enter pharmacy school in
the fall, said she thinks the new re-
quirement is a good idea, though
she's unsure how the device will
benefit her classroom experience.
The only instruction she has received
so far is to download Epocrates, an
application that helps determine
correct medicine dosages, she said.
"Technology is always chang-
ing," she said. "If it's something I'll
be using in the future in my profes-
sional career, why not learn to use it
now?"
Wadsworth said she was fortu-
nate to have received an iPod touch
for Christmas last year, before she
knew it would be required as part of
her curriculum.
"I would probably be more irri-
tated with the new rule if I had to go
out and buy one," she said. "Luck-
ily, I was prepared for the change."
But even with all of the new hi-
tech devices and medical advances
now available, Wadsworth said she
still sees a way that technology can
improve.
"The iPhones still can't take my
tests for me," she said with a laugh.
"For now, I guess I'll have to keep
studying the old-fashioned way."


UF student researches migrating salmon in Alaska


* HE WILL LIVE EIGHT HOURS FROM
CIVILIZATION.

By LINDSEY DURANT
Alligator Contributing Writer

While temperatures in Gainesville consis-
tently reach the mid-90s, one UF student is
spending the summer in a much cooler cli-
mate.
Matthew Smukall, who graduated in May
from the Department of Wildlife Ecology
and Conservation, was selected to research


migrating salmon populations of southern
Alaska from July 12 to Sept. 10 as an intern
with the Cook Inlet Aquaculture Associa-
tion.
The first UF student chosen to partici-
pate in the program, Smukall will live in and
study a remote area of Alaskan terrain for
seven weeks.
"I have always wanted to go to Alaska
and to work in the wilderness there, and this
was a chance to have someone pay for my
trip," the Orlando native said.
Smukall, who specialized in wildlife
ecology, arrived in Kenai, Alaska, on July 6,


where he began a five-day wildlife training
period that will certify him in First Aid, CPR
and bear, firearm and water safety.
"They have to be prepared,"
Student said senior biologist for the as-
Life sociation Paul Blanche, who
will be supervising the students.
"The nearest help is eight hours
away."
After the completion of his wildlife train-
ing, Smukall will be paired with a student
and assigned to one of eight waterside loca-
tions.
He said he most looks forward to working


alongside wild grizzlybears that will compete
for salmon and are attracted to campsites.
Smukall, who spent most of June research-
ing lobster in the Florida Keys, and is a mem-
ber of the Gator Scuba Club, said adjusting
to living in a remote Alaskan location with
nighttime temperatures averaging in the low
40s will be tough.
Smukall and his student partner will
build and live in a 10-by-12 semipermanent,
weather-proof structure.
"It is freezing here, and it was weird to see
all of the mountains as we flew in covered in
snow in the middle of July," he said.

Beginning this fall, students will be charged for dropping classes

Also, students who drop a class paid for by Bright Futures

In the past, UF students have had the ability to drop

Mac Arthur plagiarized passages from four articles in The New York Times


PLAGIARIZED, from page 1
Meredith Cochie, adjunct lecturer at the
journalism college, discussed the issue in
her class and posted it on the class blog so
students could discuss it.
Wright said that all colleges fight student
plagiarism on school work, but this is the
first time since Wright became dean a year
and a half ago that a UF student has been


exposed for something of this magnitude.
McKeen, who will meet with Mac Arthur
to discuss possible consequences, said he
takes plagiarism as a "personal insult" and
that plagiarism by a student causes concern
over the value of a degree from the College.
After discovering the plagiarized pas-
sages, The Colorado Springs Gazette issued
a public apology on the paper's Web site,
with links to the plagiarized Times passages.


Links to MacArthur's offending stories were
deactivated.
Editor Jeff Thomas said the newsroom
got a tip Tuesday morn-
U F ing that a passage in Mac
Academics Arthur's story had been
published in the Times
only a week before.
"It does not take a lot of sleuthing on the
part of anybody to follow up on a tip and


find out whether something has been bor-
rowed from the New York Times," he said.
Mac Arthur was unpaid, but she interned
for college credit, he said.
"I wouldn't presume to tell the school
how to resolve this one way or another," he
said. "I certainly have to believe that the uni-
versity doesn't tolerate plagiarism. Whether
that same standard applies to an internship
setting, I don't know."

Book traces journalist's struggle with prescription drugs


ALISHA KINMAN + AVENUE WRITER


Joshua Lyon became addicted
to prescription drugs when he
was introduced to Vicodin as
part of an assignment for Jane
magazine.
The now defunct women's
magazine published an investiga-
tive piece on the availability of
prescriptions drugs online.
As part of the assignment,
Lyon ordered a bottle of 90 Vico-
din through the Internet. He first
tried the pills just to experiment,
but it wasn't long before he lost
control of his recreational drug
use. Vicodin, Valium and Xanax
became his three best friends.
"Pill Head: The Secret Life of
a Painkiller Addict," written by
Lyon, premiered on bookshelves
Tuesday. The memoir tells Lyon's
story of struggling with some of
the most dangerous drugs on the
streets.
What started as a journalistic
assignment turned into horror
novel as he learned just how
easily he became addicted to the
pills.


His gripping novel captivates
the reader through every word as
the author illustrates the horrific
experience he went through while
experimenting with painkillers.

As someone who has used
drugs, what are your sug-
gestions to raise awareness
about drug use?
Fostering a community that
is open to talking about this
problem is very important. What
finally worked for me was talk-
ing to my friends and not hiding
my addiction. Having my friends
monitor my situation was the
best way to come about with my
problem.

At what point did you
know you needed to seek
help?
I think I knew in the back of
my head that saying "This would
be my last pill," was really lying
to myself. What really set in was
when my best friend sent me a
message about how she felt about


my addiction. The concern in her
language and how she was caring
and not accusing really helped
me. If you approach a person who
has an addiction with hostiliy
they won't listen nearly as much
as they would if you came off as
genuinely concerned.



What finally worked for me was
alking to my friends and not hiding
my addiction.

The FDA wants to relabel
Tylenol and put a ban on
Vicodin and Percocet to de-
crease abuse of these medica-
tions. What is your view on
this?
I think the ban is a huge mis-
take. They need to study people
who are undergoing drug addic-


tions and stop putting restrictions
on the drugs.
Either way people can get
these drugs. I think this is in re-
action to Michael Jackson's death,
and the FDA needs to remember
that there are still people who
need the medications for health
purposes.

If you are prescribed pain-
killers, how you can avoid
become addicted and using
using the pills recreationally?
Be in constant communication
with your doctor. Read the labels
and pay attention to the warning
signs. Doctors will realize how
often you are asking for refills
and will pay close attention as to
whether or not they think you are
becoming addicted. If you need to
go on painkillers, start with a low
dosage.

What has been your big-
gest struggle?
Staying off of them. It is a huge
obstacle to tell myself "life is bet-
ter without them," when really I


could take one pill and float back
to a place free of feeling.

What are some signs that
someone is struggling with
an addiction?
Constricted pupils, memory
loss and itching are the biggest
signs. Also, people who are ad-
dicted to medications usually
don't want to be social and prefer
to be isolated.

People think that overus-
ing painkillers is not as dan-
gerous as drugs like heroine,
so it may be easier to get
addicted. What can you do to
help a friend who is addicted
to painkillers?
Interventions can be success-
ful, but personally I've witnessed
more failed interventions. The
biggest failure with interventions
is that people holding the inter-
vention think they should give
up. But future interventions can
be successful as long as people
remain persistent and willing to
help the person who is addicted.


When tripling up, leave love and coyness at the door


BRANDT WILLIAMSON + AVENUE WRITER
The threesome is not solely for sleazy
por films or late night programming on
FX.
It is an eye-opening act of playful inti-
macy and raucous abandon that college
students should have no shame in aspiring
to. Provided, of course, you work well in
groups.
However, there are some things you
need to know if you want to leap into the
nearest queen-sized bed set for three.
Like any other sex act, an essential as-
pect of the threesome is whom you do it
with. Plenty of couples look to "spice up"
a mundane sex life by inviting company.
This is not a good idea.
If your relationship is already in dire
need of a fix-up, adding another person is
not going to provide any reasonable solu-
tion unless said person is a relationship
counselor.
If your relationship is intact, a three-
some is still risky business.


Brandt Williamson
Columnist


Guys, despite
your fantasies,
your girlfriend is
unlikely to invite
another girl into
the bedroom. If she
agrees, be careful.
A bout of jealousy
may rear its ugly
head while you're
rearing that other


Or worse, you could end up being that
guy whose girlfriend left him because the
other girl offered better sex. The threesome
is best left to singles.
OK, so you're single, now whom can
you do it with? Don't do it with your
friends, unless there's an excessive amount
of booze involved and the three of you co-
incidentally stumble from the bars and into
bed. In this case, prepare for an awkward
morning.
The hook-up buddy may be your best


bet. You're unattached to this person, un-
less it's 2:30 a.m. and you have a case of
insomnia.
Another solid bet is coordinating efforts
with people you don't know. Hit the bars,
meet those special someones, and in the
words of "Cruel Intentions'" Sarah Michelle
Gellar, "introduce them to your world of
sex, drugs and...what else do you do?"
Be cautious where you decide to do your
taboo deeds. You don't have to be decadent
and prop your undeniably classy ass up on
a glass sink of a bathroom in a hotel's presi-
dential suite, but the handicapped stall of a
bathroom in Perkin's will not suffice.
One of your partners' homes is the safest
and least expensive setting and you won't
have to be the one washing the sheets after-
ward, either.
The threesome is supposed to be fun;
it's not meant to be a shy affair. Take along
a bottle of champagne, or three, and lower
your inhibitions ensuring an all-out experi-
ence complete with giggling, licking, grab-


bing, biting and scratching.
As with any group effort, remember to
share. Don't get too passionate with one
member of your team and ignore the oth-
er then you'd just have a twosome with a
voyeur standing in the corer of the room.
Creepy.
Men, if your small soiree consists of you,
a woman and another man, don't be afraid
to get a little physical with both. If word
leaks of your slightly homoerotic nighttime
activities, no one will believe your deni-
als of getting friendly with your same-sex
playmate anyway.
When the games are over, take the ex-
perience for what it was. There is no need
to be best, incestuous friends, but there
doesn't need to be an unspoken awkward-
ness either.
Lastly, don't forget to be discreet no-
body wants word of his or her indiscretions
to be broadcasted across the university.
After all, Juicy Campus no longer exists
for a reason.

Director shows films, scouts talent at local festival


JON SILMAN + AVENUE WRITER
There are some people who
strive for greatness. Ken Edwards,
of England, ate 36 cockroaches in
one minute. Jackie Bibby, "The
Texas Snake Man," sat in a bath-
tub with 87 rattlesnakes. Director
Jon Russell Cring shot 12 movies
in 20 months with equipment his
wife won in a student filmmaking
contest.
Cring and his wife, Tracy
Cring, a cinematographer who
also works on the films with him,
are taking a break from their
hectic moviemaking schedule to
share the fruits of their labor with
the world by presenting at film
festivals throughout the country.
"This is kind of an experiment
we're doing here," Cring said.
"We've probably done about two
dozen film festivals in the past
year and a half or so."
His next stop High Springs,
Fla.
The Extra/Ordinary Film
Festival will be held tonight at
the Priest Theater, 15 NW First
St., in High Springs from 1 to 11
p.m. The festival will feature an
acting symposium, a directing
seminar and three of Cring's films,
"Budd," "Bernee" and "Four on
the Floor."
"The acting and directing semi-
nar will give people a chance to
audition for my upcoming mov-
ies," Cring said. "They just need
to bring a head shot and resume."
At the acting symposium and
directing seminar, the director
will discuss the techniques he
learned in the process of mak-
ing 12 feature films in 20 months.
Topics will include auditioning,
acting for the camera, character-
ization, getting the most out of
your budget and the "five things
every film maker needs to know."
Cring's films deal mainly with
coming-of-age topics, exempli-
fied by the three movies he chose
to present at the High Spring
festival.

Russell Cring and Cinematographer Tracy Cring filming in Phoenix, AZ The duo will present at the Extra/Ordinary Film


Festival in High Springs tonight.
"Budd" is a story of a teacher
who humiliates his high school
English class. A psychiatrist must
help him delve into the past so he
can move into a better future. The
movie features Valri Bromfield
from "Needful Things," a 1990s
movie based on a Stephen King
novel by the same name.
"Bernee," a comedy about a
waitress and her adventures rais-
ing a daughter as a single mother
in a small town, stars comedian
Heather Horton, who was fea-
tured on "Last Comic Standing."
"Four on the Floor" is a story
of four high school friends trying
to keep their dream of becoming
a famous rock band alive while
learning to make a living repair-
ing cars. The movie stars Killer
Beaz, from "Last Comic Stand-
ing" and features music from four
Nashville bands: De Novo Dahl,


The Pink Spiders, Luna Halo and
American Bang.
The films have been received
well at other festivals throughout
the country. "Bernee" won Best
Feature at the Appalachian Film
Festival, and Best Actress and Best
Screenplay at the Top Ten Films
In America festival.
"Budd" was an official selec-
tion at the Route 66 Film Festival
and Memphis Film Festival, and
"Four on the Floor" was an official
selection at the Jesse James Art
and International Film Festival
and Washougal International Film
Festival.
Cring is working on his next
moviemaking blitzkrieg, "The
State of Film." He's looking for
talent for upcoming projects in
2010. He said he plans to go into
different American states and
shoot films based on local history.


It will be shot, produced and pre-
miered in a two-month period.
He will do this six times.
Not knowing where he's going
to shoot, who is going to be in the
movies and how he's going to pay
for it are all part of his process. He
is looking forward to meeting ac-
tors at the festival he can cast for
his upcoming movies.
Cring said he refuses to sac-
rifice quality for quantity. There
are too many stories he wants to
tell, too many people he wants
to work with, and by making 12
films, there is a better chance of
someone seeing something they
like.
"No one asked The Ramones
why they didn't play four-minute
songs. You got two-minute songs
and a cloud of dust," he said. "My
films are small in budget but large
in scope."

Grade school instills competition at early age


ERIK VOSS + AVENUE WRITER
When I was in the fifth grade, my teacher
introduced a new weekly competition called
"Student of the Week." Every Friday afternoon
she would saunter out from behind her desk, a
freshly word-processed certificate in hand, and
appoint one poor soul to a weeklong sentence of
hatred from his or her peers.
"You should all learn from Jerianne," she
would say, patting the winner's back as if the girl
was a cancer survivor.
"Shouldn't we be learning from the teacher
instead?" asked a boy who never, ever won Stu-
dent of the Week.
I'm sure to our teacher this was a fantastic
incentive for students to behave themselves and
pay attention. I used to picture her printing out
that certificate every week, praising herself for
her marvelous idea.
"You truly are a genius, Mrs. Branz," she


would tell herself. "Your
students will claw at each
other just to kiss your shoe.
Soon, you'll be principal."
Then she would throw
her head back and let out a
good, hearty laugh.
Eric VOSS For the first few weeks
Columnist we viciously vied for the
title, each of us as clueless
as the next on how to impress her. Some students
complimented her seasonal vests, while oth-
ers shouted the Pledge of Allegiance at the top
of their lungs. You'd think the class had been
threatened with deportation.
Our teacher was equally clueless on how to
respond to the bizarre behavior.
"Michael, stop smiling at me," she would
snap during religion class. "And no, I am not the
patron saint of charity."
That certificate was as much a scarlet letter


as it was a trophy. I held my breath every time
Jerianne opened her locker the following week,
praying that dozens of little plastic baggies of co-
caine might spill out.
"She was such a nice girl," I would've sighed,
as the cops hauled her away in handcuffs. "Sure-
ly no Student of the Week, though."
Over time, our teacher lowered her standards,
finding the thinnest rays of hope in the darkest
of horses. By the time Mark won for essentially
not running away from school that week, we saw
through the charade and gave up trying.
Ten years later, when I catch myself beaming
at my boss, I ponder our culture's competitive
nature.
Then, I remember how proud I felt holding
that certificate. How warm it felt in my hands.
How pretty the font rendered the capital "E" in
my name.
"...WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR
ALL!!!"

Rules may be needed to define proper smartphone use


No matter the time or setting there is likely
to be the sound of a phone buzzing or a screen
being rapped on nearby.
Across genders and generations the use of
smartphones, like BlackBerrys and iPhones,
has become rampant.
However, appropriate etiquette on how
and when these handheld devices should be
used is up for debate.
Etiquette expert Constance Moore suggests,
"You just don't do it."


Moore, a certified etiquette consultant and
founder of ItsOnlyProper.com, said many
people treat their BlackBerry or iPhone like an
adult pacifier,
"It's like we can't do anything without it,"
she said.
Smartphones have made e-mails instant
messages, questions are answered at the click
of a button, making the lives of many more
efficient.
Despite the benefits of these handheld


masterminds, many companies, businesses
and schools are trying to determine how to
regulate usage.
"Set your phone on silent or vibrate, so you
are not bothered by it," Moore said.
Kara Harlow, a UF junior, disagrees.
Harlow considers her BlackBerry her "Berry
Buddy," and is on it all the time.
"I love checking my e-mails and Facebook
statuses," she said.
Harlow is one of thousands of UF students
with a smartphone and like most, she never


leaves home without it.
"I use my phone in class, and I love playing
Brickbreaker, especially when I'm bored,"
Harlow said.
Traditionalists believe that using
BlackBerrys or iPhones in a meeting is an
extreme faux pas, while technology advocates
believe missing even a text message could
be a threat to a possible business deal or
important situation.

City brings clothes to life


REBEKAH GEIER + AVENUE WRITER


New York City styles the world.
As home to the most notable fashion
design academies, an extraordinary
talent base, and Seventh "Fashion"
Avenue, its style is unparalleled.
The city offers a wide range of re-
tail options, from upscale boutiques
to vintage flea markets, that make
clothing and accessories from your
wildest dreams accessible, and often
unexpectedly affordable.
The streets overflow with cre-
ative energy from store fronts,
posters, graffiti, street vendors and
people. New York is a city that takes
risks and puts on a show.
It is where pedestrians are not
just j-walkers, they are inspirations.
Here, trends are fabricated, ta-
pered with and then sent strutting
around the world for others to get
wrapped up in.
In New York, the style-savvy are
giving trends a slight kick in the face.
In the city that never sleeps, "trend-
less" is the new trend. It is nearly im-
possible to label one trend.
If I tried, it would be something
like "grunge meets flapper, meets
bohemian, with some girly meets


gothic, which then meets preppy
with a touch of glam, all with the
modem flair from 2009."
Overwhelming, I know, but in
this city anything goes. If runways
were an iPod and that iPod were
on shuffle, we would end up with
something a lot like the streets of
New York City. Each person that
steps into view represents a differ-
ent genre of fashion.
A model-esque woman walks
down the street wearing a white,
flowing maxi dress, a flower in her
hair, and sunglasses straight out of
Woodstock.
A minute later, another woman
walks past wearing a mini dress
with an 80s inspired pattern, blazer,
and high tops.
The element of surprise is what
keeps the streets alive with creativ-
ity. Everything is vintage, and if it's
not then it's made to look like it is.
The ensembles are composed of
a conglomerate of trends from all
eras cultures. The street vendors
prove this, with their tables, filled
with trinkets and accessories that
display copies of the season's popu-
lar trends.

Top 10 games I wish I saw live


ome moments are simply better en-
joyed in person.
Sporting events are certainly no ex-
ception.
Sometimes, television just can't do it jus-
tice. You can see every angle of a play but
miss out on enjoying the feelings of those sit-
ting in the stands the passion, the inten-
sity, the exhilaration, the defeat.
In good times or bad, it all feels more
real.
While I laid on my couch on Sunday
catching the second half of the epic men's
Wimbledon final, my thoughts drifted dur-
ing the commercials.
"Man, how cool it would be to be there."
I know tennis crowds don't get all that
rowdy. I know it was across the Atlantic
Ocean. I know any seat I could've purchased
would have had a less-than-stellar view.
But I didn't care. I just wished I was
there.
With that, I present the Top 10 Sporting
Events I Wish I Saw Live.
(My qualifications were easy. First, you
will definitely disagree with some of my se-


lections. Second, I had
to be alive so July
1988-Present. Third, I
know you missed my
lists, so enjoy.)

NAL: NO. 2-SEEDED
OKLAHOMA STATE DEFEATS NO. 1-SEEDED
ST. JOSEPH'S, 64-62
This game and season as a whole prob-
ably caught me at the peak of my own bas-
ketball playing days. A family friend was
an alumnus of St. Joe's and had me paying
attention to the Hawks well before they be-
came beloved by a nation because of their un-
defeated regular season. I loved then-senior
Jameer Nelson's play and wanted to emulate
it in my own action on the hardwood. A loss
to Xavier in the Atlantic 10 Tournament put
a blemish on the Hawks' record, but they still
had much to live up to in the Big Dance after
earning a No. 1 seed at a school not normally
SEE PHIL, PAGE 31


Don't be surprised by King's acts


W e are all witnesses when
it's cool with LeBron James
and Nike, at least.
Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com re-
ported that this season's NBA MVP
was dunked on by Xavier sophomore
Jordan Crawford at the LeBron James
Skills Academy on Monday night, and
after LeBron talked to a Nike official,
all video evidence of the posterization
of "King James" was confiscated.
Can't show any signs of weakness,
right? Why would he want the public
perception of him as the greatest bas-
ketball player since Michael Jordan
called into question if only for the
time it takes the slam's footage to play
on YouTube because some 6-foot-4
kid who averaged 9.7 points per game
in his only season as a college basket-
ball player did the unthinkable?
While it's hard to argue against


LeBron being
the most tal-
ented player in
the NBA right
now, it's becom-
ing increasingly
Adam Berry difficult to de-
Bad News Berry fend some of his
aberry@alligator.org actions. LeBron
is reportedly a
great teammate, and it shows with
the Cavaliers. They seem to get along,
and only with exceptional chemistry
could a team prominently featuring
Anderson Varejao win 66 games in
the regular season.
Some of his off-the-court moves,
however, have been questionable. He
left the court after falling to the Or-
lando Magic in the playoffs without
shaking hands with any opposing

eral days later rocked a shirt that
read: "Check My $tats."
Don't get me wrong: I think
the $tats shirt is hilarious, and I
love when athletes show person-
ality. It's part of why nobody re-
ally knows what to make of Kobe
Bryant or even Tiger Woods.
Kobe did everything he could to
create a likable personality and
force it on everyone (see "Kobe
Doin' Work"). Tiger, on the other
hand, let his dominance of the


golf world do the talking.
LeBron has stated his desire
to become the first billionaire
athlete, and his marketing firm
declared its plan to make him a

Top 10 Uf Athletes of 2008-09


1 I Spikes makes presence felt on, off field


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
sports@alligator.org


On Georgia's second play of
its first drive, star running back
Knowshon Moreno took the
handoff from Matthew Stafford,
tried to make a cut to get back to
the line of scrimmage and was
driven to the ground by Brandon
Spikes.
Moreno tore the Gators' de-
fense apart in 2007 with 188 rush-
ing yards and three touchdowns
in a 42-30 loss, but Spikes made
it clear that the 2008 UF defense
was not going to make the same
mistakes two years in a row.
The vicious hit put Georgia
back 1 yard, and Spikes remained
on top of Moreno to trash talk for
a few extra seconds.
"I just told him he better get
ready because I'm going to be
here all night," Spikes said after
the game.
That hit set the tempo for the
Gators' 49-10 win against the
Bulldogs in Jacksonville a year
after being embarrassed by a
team-wide end zone celebration
following Georgia's first touch-
down in 2007.
Spikes had several other mem-
orable plays during the Gators'


run to their second national
championship in three years, in-
cluding an interception returned
for a touchdown against LSU.
The middle linebacker rum-
bled down the field for 52 yards
on the first play of the fourth
quarter for his first pick-six at
any level.
After reaching the end zone,
Spikes shanked a celebratory
punt into the crowd to commem-
orate the occasion.
"I never took a pick to the
house ever in my football career,
*ust the assion for the game
#6 kind of took
over," Spikes
said following
UF's 51-21 vic-
tory against
then-No. 4 LSU.
As a junior,
Spikes Spikes was the
unquestioned
leader of the No. 4 scoring de-
fense in the nation in the box
scores, on the field and in the
locker room.
Despite sitting out the first
game of the season, Spikes' 93
tackles on the year ranked first on
the much-improved UF defense,
and he was second on the team
with four interceptions.
While the improvement of the


Gators defense can largely be at-
tributed to the emergence of a
consistent secondary, the steady
play by Spikes and the rest of
the front seven anchored the de-
fense.
A year after allowing 25.5
points and 361.8 yards per game
of total offense, Spikes and the
defense gave up 12.9 points and
285.3 yards per game in 2008.
And Spikes is never one to dis-
appoint the fans. He stirred up
the Tennessee faithful the past
two years by questioning the Vol-
unteers' effort on the field.
Although Spikes could have
joined Percy Harvin and declared
for the NFL Draft, he chose to stay
at UF for his senior season.
In 2009, Spikes will be part of a
defensive unit that returns every-
one in the two-deep depth chart.
For making some of the year's
most memorable plays, leading
the Gators on and off the field
and turning a questionable de-
fense into a lockdown unit, Bran-
don Spikes is the alligatorSports
No. 6 UF Athlete of 2008-09.

BY THE NUMBERS: Spikes earned
two second-place votes, one
fourth-place vote, one eighth-
place vote and was left off two
ballots.


Freshman slugger surpasses expectations


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
sports@alligator.org

The legend of Preston Tucker's
epic slugging abilities preceded
him to an almost unhealthy level.
It turned out to be completely
true, and he began creating his
own folklore from the moment he
stepped on UF's campus.
The freshman first baseman
arrived in Gainesville last sum-
mer and had UF sophomore Josh
Adams throw him some batting
practice.
The lefty's bat hit bomb after
bomb over the fence, including
several that bounced off Stadium
Road.
Hitting the scoreboard lo-
cated in right-center field, 375 feet
away from home plate became
a normal occurrence.
Then he started actually play-
ing in games for the Gators.
Tucker turned in one of the best
seasons at the plate in school histo-
ry. He broke the single-season RBI
record previously held by Ryan
Shealy (80 in 2002), a milestone
that withstood four seasons of
challenges by Matt LaPorta, one of
the best sluggers to come through
Gainesville.
Tucker took home UF's "Triple
Crown" by leading the team in
batting average (.364), home runs
(15) and RBI (85). He also led the
Gators in four other offensive cat-
egories slugging percentage
(.628), total bases (152), multiple-
hit games (27) and multiple-RBI


games (23).
The freshman's phenomenal
season did not go unnoticed.
He became the first UF player
to earn the National Collegiate
Baseball Writers Association
(NCBWA) Freshman Hitter of the
Year award. He earned Co-South-
eastern Conference Freshman of
the Year honors with LSU pitch-
er Matty Ott. He was named to
Freshman All-America teams by
four different publications (Base-
ball America, Louisville Slugger,
Rivals.com and the NCBWA).
Tucker also earned the SEC Fresh-
man of the Week award three
times, setting a new school mark.
The Tampa native was even in-
vited to the 2009
USA Baseball
National Team
Trials.
Coach Kev-
in O'Sullivan
thought he had
something spe-
Tucker cial when he re-
cruited Tucker,
but even O'Sullivan was amazed
at how well the slugger adjusted
in his first year.
"There's just certain guys that
when they come to the plate ev-
erybody stops what they're doing
and they watch," O'Sullivan said
during the postseason. "He's got
an air about him. He's got con-
fidence, and you can see it in his
mannerisms. He's been locked in
for an awfully long time."
Tucker has given people plenty
to watch as well.


The most epic feat of his fresh-
man year came on April 8 when
UF faced UCF and the slugger had
a school-record 11 RBI in a 16-3
Gators victory.
In the fifth inning, he pulled a
ball over the right-field fence for a
grand slam. The very next inning,
Tucker took a ball the other way
for a three-run home run to left-
center field. To cap it off, the fresh-
man hit his second grand slam of
the game to center field in the sev-
enth inning.
The slugger saved his best for
his postseason debut, hitting .531
with 14 RBI, including going 13
for 20 in five NCAA games. The
freshman earned Regional MVP
honors after going 9 for 13 in three
games, including six RBI and two
home runs as UF advanced out of
a regional that included Miami for
the first time in 11 tries.
Not bad for someone all 30
MLB clubs passed on for 50
rounds of the draft coming out of
high school.
For living up to the insur-
mountable hype and producing
one of the best seasons at the plate
in UF history, Preston Tucker is
the alligatorSports No. 5 UF Ath-
lete of 2008-09.

BY THE NUMBERS: Tucker is the
first athlete revealed to earn a
Top-10 ranking on all six ballots:
The freshman earned one third-
place vote, one fourth-place vote,
one fifth-place vote, one seventh-
place vote, one eighth-place vote
and one 10th-place vote.

UF first baseman Preston Tucker and his big bat lived up to all the hype in
his freshman year. He set the Gators' single-season RBI record in 2009.

known for such things. The image of Oklahoma State
guard John Lucas III's game-clinching 3-pointer con-
trasted sharply with a defeated Nelson, who missed a
potential game-tying jumper at the buzzer.

9) TENNIS 2009 WIMBLEDON MEN'S SINGLES FINAL:
ROGER FEDERER DEFEATS ANDY RODDICK 5-7, 7-6 (6),
7-6 (5), 3-6, 16-14
Obviously the most recent event on the list, this im-
mediately went down in my books as my second-favor-
ite tennis match ever. Roddick reminded everyone why
he has been so highly touted his entire pro career, while
Federer fought yet another tough challenge on Wimble-
don's grass to capture his record-breaking 15th Grand
Slam title. How can a 16-14 final set not be captivating?
It made me remember why I love Wimbledon's lack of
a fifth-set tiebreaker so much. We could've been cheated
(I'm looking at you, U.S. Open). You really had to won-
der who would blink first, yet either winner presented
an amazing story. The timing Sunday morning and
early afternoon, the perfect accompaniment to brunch -
is so unique and special. This one definitely had people
saying "Did you see that?" and people who had missed
it clamoring for the replay. Here's to hoping the 2010 fi-
nal can come even close to the last two years.

8) MEN'S COLLEGE BASKETBALL 2008 NCAA TOUR-
NAMENT FIRST ROUND TAMPA: (13) SIENA DEFEATS
(4) VANDERBILT, (12) VILLANOVA DEFEATS (5) CLEM-
SON, (12) WESTERN KENTUCKY DEFEATS (5) DRAKE,
(13) SAN DIEGO DEFEATS (4) CONNECTICUT
This one would rank near the top if we were ranking
sporting events I really had a decent shot at attending
and passed up. I'm not sure if I've despised coworker
Mike McCall any more than I did on March 22, 2008.
McCall was fortunate to cover the four games, and I de-

bated attending as a fan but decided against returning to
my hometown. Any guess how much I second-guessed
that choice the next day? Four games. Four upsets (and
big ones at that). It may go down as one of the best first-
round sites in Big Dance history. It's really too fitting
McCall lucked into one of the best gigs ever, while I was
criticizing myself for watching on TV in Gainesville.

7) COLLEGE FOOTBALL 2006: NO. 6 UF DEFEATS
SOUTH CAROLINA, 17-16
I'm not sure much introduction has to be given for
this game, at least around Gainesville. "The Block" will
likely suffice. While still in my pre-Alligator days, I un-
fortunately chose to spend the weekend at home. I've
imagined and heard after the fact just how crazy the at-
mosphere was inside The Swamp. I was left watching
one of the biggest plays of the year on my living room
TV. Sure doesn't capture the worry, pause of wonder
and complete euphoria felt by those at the game. I guess
seeing The Promise firsthand was my consolation prize.

6) NHL 2004 STANLEY CUP FINALS GAME 7: TAMPA
BAY LIGHTNING DEFEAT CALGARY FLAMES 2-1
This game marked the end of my brief love affair
with the NHL. I will absolutely admit my 16-year-old
self jumped on the Lightning bandwagon along with the
rest of the Tampa Bay area. We got a heck of a series
too, going the full length, and Games 5 and 6 went into
overtime. Heck, I was listening to hockey playoff games
on the radio if I couldn't be around the television for a
period. I readily admit this was an absurd moment of
my life, unlikely to be repeated even if the Lightning be-
come relevant again. And in the days of pre-HD televi-
sion coverage and perhaps still now hockey games
are a lot more fun in person (this coming from a man
who has been to only a handful).
To be continued on Tuesday... What other five events
will make Phil's list? Do you already hate/love him?
