Stood-up group



protests at union


By JOEY FLECHAS
Alligator Writer

The members of the Stu-
dent/Farmworker Alliance
who walked through the Re-
itz Union Food Court Wednes-
day didn't stop for a bite to eat.
Instead, the group of about 20 stu-
dents chanted to protest the treat-
ment of the workers who pick toma-
toes in Immokalee, Fla.
Aramark, UF's food provider,
purchases tomatoes picked by the
Immokalee workers.
The gathering was originally
planned as a meeting between the
alliance and Aramark representa-
tives in the Retiz Union Amphithe-
atre, but the representatives cited an
emergency and canceled, asking to
reschedule for Tuesday at 2 p.m.
UF environmental science senior
Krissy Abdullah, a member of the


Student/ Farmworker Alliance, said
she questions whether Aramark
wants to meet with students.
"It makes me wonder if it's just a
tactic of avoidance," she said.
Holding signs with slogans like
"Aramark vampires workers' lives
are not a food source," they marched
to the Gator Dining Services office
in the basement of the Reitz Union
and spoke to Melanie Poling, UF
operations analyst for Aramark. She
apologized and asked to come to the
rescheduled meeting.
"I think we're after the same
thing," she said.
Moments after the group had
dispersed, University Police Depart-
ment officers arrived because they
received a call about a disturbance
in the Reitz Union.
Officer J.A. Savona said, accord-
ing to Florida law, protesters were
not supposed to be inside the build-
ing or even on the colonnade.

Former GPD officer on trial


for abuse of infant daughter


* THE BABY SUFFERED INTERNAL BLEEDING,
FRACTURED RIBS AND RUPTURED ORGANS.

By MINCH MINCHIN
Alligator Writer

A trial continued Wednesday for a former
Gainesville police officer charged with the neglect and
abuse of his 2-month-old daughter in January 2007.
Herbert Priester, 39, allegedly squeezed her, causing
internal bleeding, fractured ribs and ruptured organs,
said Chief Assistant State Attorney Jeanne Singer.
According to testimony from Priester's wife, Tabitha
Priester, 25, the infant was found lying naked and cov-
ered with scratches and bruises in the couple's home
in southwest Gainesville shortly after her husband re-
turned home from work.


The defense said the wounds were caused by the
Priester's family dog, Bandit. The infant was released
from the hospital after 10 days and is now healthy. The
state charged Herbert Priester with abuse and neglect.
The pediatric radiologist at Shands who handled the
case, Jonathan Williams, said during
the trial that such damage would be
"highly unlikely unless it was a very
large dog."
In her testimony, Tabitha Priester
defended her husband and dog,
blaming herself. Priester once
Priester worked for the Florida Department
of Children and Families, she said.
"It's not the dog's fault," she said. "It's my fault for
not securing the dog."
Testimony will resume today at 9 a.m. at the Ala-
chua County Criminal Justice Center.


V-Day sales may dip
By ALLEN HAYNES
Alligator Contributing Writer

Local merchants are concerned smaller wallets will mean
fewer bouquets again this Valentine's Day.
This year, the country's total holiday spending is expected
to reach $14.1 billion, which is low in comparison to the $17
billion spent in 2008, according to the National Retail Federa-
tion.
Americans spent about $14.7 billion on gifts in 2009, ac-
cording to the organization.
The federation predicts couples will spend
Local about $63.34 on nontraditional Valentine's gifts,
News compared to $67.22 last year. The average person
will spend $103 on Valentine's Day merchandise
like candy and flowers, similar to last year's $102.50.
Local florists are already preparing for another decrease
in sales.
Barbara Crevasse, owner of Crevasse's Florist, said total
sales have slowed in the last two years, and the trend toward
cheaper arrangements is increasing.
She said people are still sending flowers to loved ones;
they're just smaller.
Elizabeth Cavallo, manager of Floral Expressions Florist,
thinks the decrease in sales will have more to do with Val-

Art therapy helps patients


By CINDY TAVERAS
Alligator Contributing Writer

His head shakes in unison with his trem-
bling hands as he moves his marker across a
white paper, leaving behind traces of blue ink.
Chip Colley, 54, is a self-taught artist. He's
also one of about one million Americans with
Parkinson's disease, according to the U.S. De-
partment of Health and Human Services.
At Art for Life, a free program offered every
Wednesday for people with movement disor-
ders and their caregivers, he is not restrained
by his disorder.
"I think it's odd I can hardly write my
name," he said. "But I can draw a straight
line."
Parkinson's disease is a chronic movement
disorder that causes slow, involuntary tremors,
according to the U.S. Department of Health
and Human Services.
Katherine Castle, an Art for Life volunteer
who also has Parkinson's disease, said she


doesn't want to be defined by her disorder.
"I don't want to be the artist with Parkin-
son's disease I just want to be the artist" she
said. "Parkinson's is part of me, but it's not all
of me."
Some of the activities at Art for Life include
drawing, sketching, painting and creating ori-
gami.
Jill Sonke, assistant director for Shands Arts
in Medicine, said the program is an expressive
and social outlet for those with the disorder.
"It's a disease that can be man-
On aged well but does require sup-
Campus port," Sonke said. "It's stressful."
Colley, who couldn't draw
before his disorder, wants people to know that
living with a movement disorder doesn't have
to be negative.
"There can be a blessing in there some-
where. It's helped me cope with it," he said.
Art for Life is offered every Wednesday
from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Criser Cancer Re-
source Center.


BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Forum promotes unity


By LYN KRAMER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students learned to find unity with-
in their diversity at the African Student
Union interactive forum Wednesday
night.
"We want to emphasize that no
matter where you're from, we all have
a common history," said Roberta Rob-
erts, the public relations director for
the African Student Union.
The purpose of the forum, which
was held in the New Engineering
Building, was to promote unity and
dispel stereotypes by bringing black
people together, Roberts said.


Jhenny Saint-Surin, an anthropol-
ogy and political science junior and a
member of the African Student Union,
said she hopes the forum will be a
learning experience for African-Amer-
icans.
Faye Harrison, an anthropology and
African-American studies professor,
and Kole Odutola, an African-Ameri-
can studies professor, spoke about the
sense of disconnection blacks feel in the
U.S. because of the stereotypical labels
constantly stamped upon them.
"Race is not something that exists
biologically," said Harrison. "It's a ma-
terial term manufactured by human
beings."

NATIONAL

NRA holds campus talk


By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Writer

Representatives from the National
Rifle Association Institute for Legisla-
tive Action hoped to trigger student
involvement in their campaign to pro-
mote gun rights when they visited UF
Wednesday night.
Speaking before a crowd of about 60
people at the Florida Gym, two grass-
roots coordinators from the gun advo-
cacy group came as part of the NRA
University program, which attempts
to educate college students about their
rights to bear arms.
"We're entering an era of very, very
close elections," said Seth Waugh, one
of the coordinators. "Don't just make a
point, make a difference."
The coordinators addressed miscon-
ceptions about the impact of guns on
society by arguing against a correlation
between gun ownership and crime.


Although the event was sponsored
by the UF College Republicans, the co-
ordinators stressed their message was
nonpartisan.
"We want people to know their
rights."
Johnathan Lott
chairman of the UF College Republicans

"We don't care if you're Republican,
Democrat, Green Party or Libertarian,
as long as you're with us, we support
you," said Kristiana Cupp, a coordina-
tor.
Johnathan Lott, chairman of the UF
College Republicans, considered the
event a success.
"We want people to know their
rights," he said. "When people go to the
ballot box in August, they'll vote for the
people who will protect their Second
Amendment rights as opposed to those
candidates who will take them away."

British double-decker bus to make stop in Gainesville


It will go on a 10-month tour around the US


By CAROLINE LEWIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

A 1966 double-decker bus
from London will be stopping in
Gainesville tonight to kick off a
10-month tour of the U.S.


Nick Elliott and Darren Cun-
ningham, both 25, traveled here
from England to document and
experience local culture in Amer-
ican cities.
"We have no idea what we're
in for, but we want to get to know


as many people as possible,"
said Elliott, co-
Around founder of the
Gainesville tour, dubbed
Routemaster66.
Elliott and his friend Darren
Cunningham, both 25, plan to


stay in Gainesville until Friday
before driving to New Orleans to
celebrate Mardi Gras.
They want to meet people and
let them enjoy the bus while ex-
periencing the city, Elliott said.
"You provide the people, and
we'll provide the ride," he said.
The cost of buying and remod-
eling the bus was about $23,500,


Cunningham said. He and Elliott
could not estimate the total cost
of the trip.
The trip will be paid for by
the group's savings and project
partners, including The Thomsett
Group, a property developer.

the bus, visit www.routemas-

ON CAMPUS

ZipCarts to charge $3


By TIFFANY SUTTON
Alligator Contributing Writer

ZipCarts, a nightly shuttle
service in Gainesville, and a for-
merly free ride, is now charging
$3 per person.
"We have to charge because of
our insurance with the company.
The insurance increased, and in
order to pay for it we need to gen-
erate more revenue," said Jordan
Long, one of the owners and cart
operators.
Long said the main problem
is that the company can't anchor
down large advertisements, so the
ZipCarts are now more like a taxi
service.
"We're really concerned with
keeping the streets safe. We want
to keep drunk kids off the street
late at night and keep the roads
safe," Long said. "We want to be
there when people need a safe
ride home."
But students can still get a free

ride for now.
ZipCarts teamed up with the
UF Census Bureau to offer free
rides around UF every Friday in
February from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30
p.m.
"We want to keep drunk
kids off the street late at
night and keep the roads
safe."
Jordan Long
co-owner and cart operator

For Ashley Sammons, a UF
senior, the eco-friendliness of the
service is the best part. Charging
ZipCarts costs 50 cents, and they
do not need any gas to operate.
Once fully charged, they can go 40
miles before needing to recharge.
"It's a safe and convenient
mode of transportation and
cheaper than a taxi," Sammons
said. "I love how eco-friendly the
ZipCarts are. It's great."

Parties debate campus issues


By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer

Student Government elections may be about
two weeks away, but the debate between the
Unite Party and the Student Alliance party is al-
ready beginning.
The parties'candidates for Student Body presi-
dent, vice president and treasurer discussed their
opinions about the Reitz Union fee, perks for SG
officials, reform in the SG cabinet and campus
food prices at Wednesday's debate hosted by the
Freshman Leadership Council.
All six candidates outlined their plans for the
future of the university.
Ben Cavataro, Student Alliance party candi-
date for Student Body president, said the Student
Alliance party would like to make SG open to all
students by making the budget more transparent
and implementing an online voting system.
"Our vision is one where every student gets a
voice, where we open the gates to everyone inter-
ested in helping," Cavataro said.
Rafael Yaniz, the Student Alliance party's
candidate for treasurer, said that, if elected, the


Butler Plaza Newberry Square

party's candidates would donate their salaries to
the Florida Opportunity Scholars Program, which
funds scholarships for first-generation college
students.
Ashton Charles, the Unite Party candidate for
Student Body president said the salaries are nec-
essary because SG positions leave no spare time
for another job.
"It's something that's in place that will allow
any student of any economic background to do
this job," Charles said.
Student Charles said the goal of
overnmen the Unite Party candidates
is to continue making sure
students are well-represented by the most expe-
rienced leaders on campus.
"We have a really amazing platform coming
forward, and we'll continue to advocate on the
behalf of the students," Charles said.
Andrew Hecht, director of special events for
the Freshman Leadership Council, said he ex-
pected more students to be in the audience for the
sixth annual debate.
"The reason you put on an event like this is to
change the minds of students and make sure they
are informed," Hecht said.

Editorial

All hugged out

Crist-Obama hug not

that big of a deal
Hugs don't mean much to us.
The Editorial Board has embraced old acquaintanc-
es we'd rather not see, weird relatives we'd rather not
hear and ugly babies we'd rather not smell. Sometimes, a hug
is just a social maneuver designed to keep the peace or appease
the other party.
Marco Rubio doesn't seem to understand this concept, so,
as the Republican Senate primary draws nearer, he's holding a
rally to remind voters how heinous the Obama-Crist hug was.
To emphasize the point, Rubio's speaking at the same spot the
offense occurred.
A year ago, Gov. Crist hugged Obama in Fort Myers to show
support for the stimulus bill the president was pushing. As we
remember, Obama still had that new president smell lingering
around him. He was riding a wave of popular support at the
time, and most politicians would have been happy to associate
with him.
However, feelings change and hope is turning into despair
and anger for much of the nation. So, as self-serving politicians
have done for centuries, Crist drifted to a more popular opin-
ion, leaving himself open to accusations of changing his stance
on various issues.
Politicians change their minds just as everyday people do,
although with a keener eye for strategy. The Board would usu-
ally shy away from defending Charlie, but Rubio needs to get
over his aversion to PDAs and start focusing on the true issues
in the Senate race. When the run up to an election reminds us
of tweens gossiping about who kissed whom, we tend to roll
our eyes.
Rubio should hope other voters don't do the same.


Put a sock in it


This week, the Editorial
Board is taking a page
out of Bill Maher's
book and issuing a "New
Rule" of our own: Celebrities
and politicians are no longer
allowed to speak in public.
Yes, we realize this may
cause a bit of trouble when
it comes to interviews and
the campaign trail, but this
epidemic of foot-in-mouth
syndrome cropping up in
public figures is getting out
of control.
John Mayer apologized
Wednesday for the latest in
a series of eye-roll-inspiring,
groan-inducing word choices
with "scandal" written all over
them. In an interview with
Playboy, Mayer joked about
being widely accepted by the
black community, using the
N-word. Granted, we under-
stood what he meant and the
meaning was in no way racist,
but everyone except May-
er, clearly knows the word
is off limits.


But he's not the only one
(See: Dog the Bounty Hunter,
Don Imus, Michael Richards,
Mel Gibson, Paris Hilton).
Every time we turn around,
someone with a household
name lately Rush Lim-
baugh, Rahm Emanuel and
Barack Obama is formally
apologizing to the Special
Olympics CEO Tim Shriver
and getting Sarah Palin's
panties in a twist.
To be fair though, the pub-
lic could stand to take it down
a notch. We get the glass
house thing. After all, it's not
as though we haven't had the
occasional case of verbal diar-
rhea ourselves; we at the Al-
ligator seem to have a gift for
offending people.
All we ask is that next time
someone in the public eye de-
cides to use an inflammatory
word or phrase, they consider
just for a moment the impli-
cations. In retrospect (Mayer,
Emanuel, Obama, Limbaugh,
etc.), sometimes it's best just
to shut up.

UF College Republicans does not support animal cruelty


In response to Bruce Friedrich's column printed Wednes-
day, I must take a moment to point out the grave inaccu-
racies in both his perceptions and argument against the
College Republicans' People Eating Tasty Animals event.
First, Bruce pointed out that I was not at his forum/speech
held at UF in October. While this is true, it does not negate
the fact that he did not show up at my event, either. Bruce
was quick to make harsh and thoroughly misguided judg-
ments as to the intent of the event and my beliefs on the
issue of animal rights.
For one, I thought this would all be established in the de-
bate I agreed to have with him, so I am not sure why the
pre-emptive and wholly false attack on the College Republi-
cans was printed just days before the event. Bruce, although


Bryan Griffin many people have refused to debate
Speaking Out your extremist views, I am not doing
it for you. I am doing it to set the re-
cord straight on what a conservative,
rational human being's thoughts are on the issue of animal
rights in this country.
Let me go ahead and state it, then, in case there is any
confusion on Friday: Neither I nor the UF College Republi-
cans support animal cruelty. In fact, I am in favor of govern-
ment measures to reduce animal cruelty practices in the ani-
mal industry, so long as they do not cause the cost of food to
exceed affordability by the average American trying to feed
their families in hard economic times. I love people more
than animals, and I believe people's rights are superior. That


being said, I have a strong respect for the animal kingdom
and nature as a whole, and I would never want to see, nor
would I actively endorse, cruelty to any living thing.
But, Bruce, our method of accomplishing positive change
differs greatly. You and your organization, PETA, spend
millions upon millions pushing an extremist viewpoint with
unobtainable goals (getting people to stop eating meat), and
you call that dedication to the cause. I am going to work
within the political system to make positive changes on this
earth, including enforcing regulations on the animal indus-
try to reduce animal cruelty practices. That is real dedication
to the cause.

Candidate vows to balance city budget


Editor's Note: This is the fourth segment
of the Face in the Race series.

By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Writer

With the walls lined with guns and gui-
tars, the small pawn shop at 523 NW Third
Ave. hardly looks like the ideal place for a
campaign headquarters.
Yet for Richard Selwach, the owner of
Best Jewelry & Loan Pawnbrokers, the shop
serves as his platform for engaging people
to tell them his mayoral campaign plans -
whether they want to hear it or not.
"People don't want to hear the truth," he
said. "I'm here to tell you the truth."
Selwach said he's offering simple solutions
to some of Gainesville's biggest problems.
For students, Selwach wants to keep local
bars open until 4 a.m. while requiring them to
stop serving drinks at 2 a.m. He argued that
this revision would give patrons a chance to
sober up before leaving.
If elected, Selwach, a self-
Faces described libertarian, vows to
S in the balance the city's budget by
R1ace eliminating programs he sees
as wasteful, such as the Office
of Equal Opportunity and the
Communications Office.
"We need to go back to the basics," he
said. "Anything that's not essential is up for
the chopping block."
He also opposes plans to build a biomass
plant, which he said will bum an unneces-
sary amount of trees.
Coinciding with his stance on decriminal-
izing marijuana, Selwach offered a solution
of burning hemp in place of the trees.
"They can put it in their biomass plant and
smoke it," he said.
Selwach is no stranger to bold statements,
especially when it comes to the city's anti-
discrimination ordinance, which modifies
Chapter 8 of the city's Code of Ordinances to
include protection from gender discrimina-
tion.
The ordinance allows citizens to use bath-
rooms that suit their gender identity, defined

Mayoral candidate Richard Selwach poses with Mossberg and Winchester shotguns
inside his pawn shop and campaign headquarters on Northwest Sixth Street.


as "an inner sense of being a specific gender"
as opposed to biological sex.
Selwach said that his opposition to the
bill stems from what he described as sloppily
written language, not an underlying preju-
dice toward transgender people.
"I'm not here to take any rights away
from anyone," said Selwach. "I'm not going
to gamble with the safety of the children...
a 10-year-old girl doesn't need to see some
guy's penis."
For Selwach, the anti-discrimination ordi-
nance is such an important issue that he told
Gainesville City Commissioner Craig Lowe,
one of the other mayoral candidates who
assisted in the ordinance's passage, that he
would drop out of the race if Lowe modified


the language in the ordinance.
"I pulled him aside and told him 'Craig,
I like you, and if I wasn't running, I'd vote
for you,'" he said. "Sometimes it gets really
heated but that's politics."
According to the latest campaign financial
reports, Selwach has contributed $2,900 to his
campaign.
He is not accepting campaign contribu-
tions.
As the March 16 election nears, Selwach in-
sisted that if elected, he would use his role to
serve and protect the people of Gainesville.
"In my life, before I go, I want to do the
right thing," he said. "You don't want a guy
like me to give up... I'm here to do my job."

while they're at work. She hopes
people will think ahead and send
arrangements and gift baskets
early this year.
"It's never too early to say 'I

hoping people will have things
delivered on Friday."
Cavallo said they will offer a
substantial variety of arrange-
ments for all budgets ranging
from about $30 orders to custom
orders in the hundreds of dollars,
including the traditional dozen
red roses and a tulip special.
Crevasse said Valentine's Day
is their Super Bowl of holidays,
even though Mother's Day brings
in more total money. She said
they hire extra floral designers
and delivery drivers to help re-
lieve the pressures of completing
the holiday orders.
Cavallo echoed a similar senti-
ment.
"We have people who want
something delivered every hour.
That's kind of hard when you're
screaming busy," Cavallo said.
"Those guys must be crazy in
love."

He Says...
Seriously, be a man!
Whining about not having a date
for Valentine's Day is something that
only chicks are allowed to do.
You should be happy that you
aren't going to be tied down this year.
No girlfriend means no stressing over
gifts, no grand romantic gestures and
certainly no awkward conversations
where she accuses you of being sweet
only because it's Valentine's Day.
Fellas, I assure you, this weekend
is a blessing in disguise. Remember
the rationale behind "Wedding Crash-
ers"? Women become horny with
jealousy whenever their friends are in
happy relationships. Valentine's Day is
no different.
Girls become emotionally unstable

waft into town as early as Friday. That
means a three-day open season on all
the singles in Gainesville.
Imagine wave after wave of ladies
and no couples dilutingthe field of po-
tential mates. While those in relation-
ships are all out on their picnics, din-
ner dates or unnecessarily long walks
on the beach, their friends will be out
looking for a warm body to snuggle
with.
But you are goingto have to go out
into the wild of Gainesville's nightlife
if you want to take part in the hunt.
Don't think that by surprisingthe cutie
in your class who you nevertalk to with
flowers on Friday will make her yours
by Sunday
When you are out there this week-
end, play to their emotions. Talk about
how fake and corporate Valentine's
Day has become. You could even throw
out the sympathy card and tell a story
about how your girlfriend just left you,


But if preying on the unsuspecting
women of UF isn't your style, I under-
stand. There are plenty of other ways
to celebrate that have nothing to do
with romance. Have a boys' night. Or-
der some wings, pick up some beer,
relax and watch whatever game is on.
Overall, girl or no girl, it shouldn't
really matter. If you have a significant
other, make sure you treat her right.
After all, Valentine's Day is all about
the ladies. If you're single, relish the
fact that you are your own man and
be happy to have no obligations to
anyone else. Either way, keep in mind
that there are more Valentine's Days
to come, and that next year, you may
be experiencing it from the other side.
She Says...
In three days, single girls every-
where will turn to cynicism and vodka

"Lip primer is a step many women forget about,
but it's so important because it fills in any fine lines
and smoothes out the texture of the lips," Joy said.
She said you should apply silicone-based primers
to the lips and then allow it to sit for a few minutes.
Blotting with a tissue should only remove the excess
but not the primer.
"Your lips should have a slight slide to them. They


shouldn't be bone dry," Joy said.
Line
"When choosing a lip liner, it's best to get
the liner as nude and close to your natural color as
possible," Cato said. She also likes to use a reverse lip

Say cheers, what bubbly to buy


By RICHARD O. STEHLI
avenue writer


Go ahead and buy the oysters and
strawberries at a grocery store, but
when it comes to buyingthe booze, go
to a real wine shop. You will find bet-
ter selection and lower prices. Gracey
Castine, of Dorn's Liquors, had plenty
of advice to offer on the subject this
Valentine's Day.
If it says "Champagne" on the
bottle, it has to be grown in the Cham-
pagne region of France, and for a true


French Champagne, you often have
to pay a little more. Spanish spar-
kling wine, Cava, will probably cost
less, and you might not be able to tell
the difference. For the big spender,
Castine recommends Laurent Perrier
Rose ($70), but you will not be disap-
pointed with a Cristalino or Freixenent
Rosado ($10).
And there is nothing wrong wine.
As it is Valentine's Day, you should
look for a red and then match it with
strong tastes like dark chocolate or
blue cheese. Pinot Noir is especially


popular on V-Day.
Again, don't be afraid to spend
$10 or even less on a bottle, so long
as you buy it from a reputable source.
For those celebrating on a budget,
Castine recommends wines from
Chile, Argentina and Spain.
Don't forget, there are no liquor
sales on Sunday in Alachua County,
and you cannot buy beer or wine until
after 1 p.m. So, be sure to head to the
stores for your alcohol before the big
day. Dorn's Liquors is located at 4140
NW 16th Blvd.

Lace, lust and love

SBy ASHLEY MCCREDIE
A wl avenue writer
Lingerie can be the perfect addition, for boys and girls, to a great Valentine's Day. And with so many
styles out there, there's a perfect fit for everyone's fashion taste, body type and level of sexiness.
"Lingerie is suited to show your best assets," said Rebecca Silver, sales associate at French Addic-
tion. "It cups and lifts boobs, and it streamlines the body for a slenderizing look."
Here are three looks that shoppers can choose from for the holiday:

Dance like
By ALLISON BANKO
avenue writer

When flippingthrough music videos,
it is difficult to keep your mouth from
dropping atthe sight of a Pussycat Dolls
music video. Whether you are a boy or
a girl confronted with the spectacle is
irrelevant. The Dolls' sultry demeanor
and flawless stomachs causes most
guys to contain themselves in their in-
seam and turns girls green with envy.
Luckily, Dolls creator and choreog-
rapher, Robin Antin, has sympathized
with this small feat of ours. Through the
release of her "Pussycat Dolls Workout"
DVD, she teaches dances that will give
women the chance to come one step
closer to becoming a Doll in their own
sense. The DVD is divided into five parts
that make up an hourlong workout of
the warm-up, a dance to "Don't Cha,"
a dance to "Buttons," a burlesque-style
dance, and the cool-down.

The Start of a Possible Disaster
OK, let's confront the big pink el-
ephant in the room. Most of us are a
bit apprehensive to even think about
anything that involves dancing even if
it is in private. However, Antin has for-
mulated her dances in ways that are so
easy, even someone with two left feet
could perform them.
On another note, you may want to
reconsider those gym shorts you were
goingto dothe DVD in. Antin makes her
appearance, alongwith four other PCDs
in the making, sportingsparkly, midriff-
bearing outfits. So, you may feel more
comfortable doing the workout throw-
ing on that stripper Halloween costume
sitting in your closet (Don't act like you
don't have one.) And take that hair tie
out. You'll need to whip around your
mane later on to get the full effect.

The Workout
Antin kicks off the warm-up with
sexy head rolls along with other stretch-
es that are sure to loosen you up effec-
tively.
Followingthe warm-up is the "Don't
Cha" dance. The DVD first breaks down
the choreography of the dances, and


a pussycat
then following adequate practice of the
moves, Antin and the girls perform the
dance to the PCD music with you.
If you are the conservative type,
moves like smacking your "booty" and
"biting your finger" may take you a few
tries to get comfortable with.
The section dedicated to the "But-
tons" dance includes the most chal-
lenging choreography but also holds
a delightful surprise. After mastering
the moves, lead singer of The Pussycat
Dolls, Nicole Scherzinger, makes an ap-
pearance in the performance portion
of the dance.
By now, all the sexiness is out in the
open, and by the time you reach the
burlesque-style dance, the red in your
cheeks should be fading away. During
the start of this piece, Antin prompts
you to grab a scarf or a tie if you don't
have a boa lying around.
By using the boa, Antin teaches a
burlesque routine
that is both sexy
and fun. After slid-
ing the boa be-
tween your legs
and lifting it above
your head to en-
Sgage your core, the
confident doll in
you will be born.

The Final Verdict
Initiallyone maythinkthis workout is
a "pussy" in itself. But you'll be sweat-
ing by the start of the second song and
thoroughly enjoying the process of find-
ing your inner doll. Antin teaches in a
style that is easy to understand and
motivating without being too military-
sergeant-like. You're guaranteed to feel
confident and sexy after shaking your
ass and whipping your hair around in
the routines. The moves are doable
in the smallest of spaces, so your sad
little dorm room will work fine.
Oh, and for the guys out there, if
you are finding yourself "lonely" in the
action department, this DVD contains
barely clothed, sexy women doing pro-
vocative dance moves. And this may
cause fewer viruses on your computer
than those porn sites you visit.

Poor free-throw shooting downs Florida
By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@all gator org


COLUMBIA, S.C. Last year at South Carolina,
one missed free throw led to a heartbreaking loss for
Florida. Wednesday night, trouble at the line brought
about another tough defeat in Colonial Life Arena.
UF (17-7, 6-4 Southeastern Conference) shot 10 of
23 from the free-throw line and fell 77-71 to South Car-
olina (14-9, 5-4 SEC) on the Gamecocks' home floor.
"If we focused at the free-throw line and made free
throws, don't turn the ball over and keep them off
the offensive glass, those three things keep them out
of the game," said junior forward Chandler Parsons,
whose missed free throw last year allowed the Game-
cocks to get a full-court pass and fast-break layup as
time expired.
"If we focused at the free-throw line and
made free throws, don't turn the ball

Chandler Parsons
UFjunior forward

After jumping out to a 6-4 lead in the opening two
and a half minutes, South Carolina didn't lead again
until 8:18 remained in the game.
The Gators established a 28-20 lead with 6:38 to go
in the first half thanks to some hot early shooting, but
sophomore point guard Erving Walker missed two of
three free throws that could have pushed the lead to
10.
Florida entered the game second in the SEC in free-
throw percentage, shooting 71 percent on the year. But
aside from Walker, who scored six of his team-high 20
points from the line, no Gator made more than one
free throw despite a combined 13 attempts.
Freshman forward Erik Murphy shot 1 of 5 from
the free-throw line.
Parsons finished with a double-double (13 points,

* THE TEAM'S NEXT FOUR OPPO-
NENTS ARE RANKED IN THE TOP 25.

By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer
etorrens@allgator org

The Gators start the most difficult stretch
of their regular season tonight staring in the
mouths of angry Tigers.
UF hosts No. 23 LSU tonight at 7 in the
O'Connell Center to kick off a four-game stint
against ranked opponents (No. 5 Tennessee,
No. 17 Kentucky and No. 19 Georgia).
The Tigers (15-7, 4-6 Southeastern Confer-
ence) are coming off a triple-overtime loss to
Ole Miss that dropped them to ninth place in


the SEC. Despite being unranked, the Gators
(13-10,6-4 SEC) are tied for third in the confer-
ence with the Rebels.
"Every team in our league is just so good
and talented," coach Amanda Butler said.
"You look at LSU's conference record and

people might ask,'Are they
not that good?' No, that's
definitely not the case.
They just happen to be
playing in the best league
in the country."
The Tigers come into
the game with one of the
defenses, ranking seventh


in scoring.
Holding opponents to an average of 52.7
points per game, LSU boasts the toughest de-


fense UF will have played in the conference.
It'll be its most formidable defensive foe since
Rutgers, who held the Gators to a season-low
38 points on Dec. 7, just 14 in the first half.
"They pride themselves on defense," guard
Jordan Jones said. "LSU, no matter what their
record is, they're still LSU. They're going to
come out here and be physical. They're going
to be aggressive."
The Tigers' aggressive defense is evident.
LSU is tied with Kentucky for second in the
nation (and first in the conference) in turnover
margin (8.0). Meanwhile, the Gators sit tied
for 214th in the country (ninth in the SEC) in
that category (-.78).
The Tigers will look to pounce on UF's
inconsistency handling the ball. There have

been games where the Gators have four or five turn-
overs in one half but cough up the ball double-digit
times in the other.
Against Auburn, the Gators committed six turn-
overs in the first half but had 11 after halftime. And
Florida's 16 first-half turnovers proved costly against
Georgia on Jan. 10.
"Mississippi State played really aggressive pres-
sure defense," Jones said. "But what we're going to
face with LSU, we're going to have to multiply that
by 10."
If the Gators hope to win, they'll have to play some
defense, too.
That starts with trying to contain preseason SEC

ence games this season, Hightower averaged 19.6

This time Florida has to slow down two threats.
The preseason favorite to win the SEC, LSU has
struggled more than anticipated. With six of seven
losses coming after January, the Tigers have added
motivation to prove they're better than their record.
"They're going to come out here and they want to
prove themselves," Jones said. "We can't look at their
record and take them lightly."

season. The Gators are likely to
lose another close one five of
their last seven games have had
a margin of single digits.
UF let a lesser team stick
around, thanks to 20 turnovers
and a 10-of-23 performance
(43.5 percent) from the free-
throw line. The Gators led from
the 16:31 mark of the first half
to 8:18 left in the game.
Earlier this week, I asked
what UF's strategy would be
for handling USC guard Devan
Downey. The SEC's leading
scorer had averaged just less
than 30 points in his last three
outings against UF.
Erving Walker said the plan
was to let Downey score but
shut everyone else down.
Forget that theory barely
worked when South Carolina
came to Gainesville. In that
matchup, Downey had 36 in a
two-point UF win (Chandler
Parsons' second buzzer-beater
this season). The Gamecocks'
second-leading scorer, Sam
Muldrow, had six.
So Wednesday night,
Downey had what I would call
a relatively "off" night. He had
24 points but made only one of
six three-pointers and didn't
have nearly as many of his
trademark unbelievable float-
ers or runners. It didn't mat-
ter because Muldrow had 16
this time around and Brandis
Raley-Ross chipped in 20.


Tough to say that strategy
worked out, but the truth is
South Carolina didn't win this
game. Florida lost it.
The Gators lost it with turn-
overs. They lost it at the free-
throw line. They lost it because
the Gamecocks were able to
have 18 more shot attempts.
And I know Kyle Maistri
beat this point into the ground
in Wednesday's paper, but Dan
Werner's presence on the court
at the end of the game did hurt
UF against South Carolina. I'm
sorry, but it did. You can talk
about intangibles and little
things, but when one player
is literally no threat to shoot
the ball, the opponent figures
that out eventually. He rarely
shoots, even when he should.
And when he took a mid-
range jumper late in the game,
he airballed it. His shot at-
tempts may be a small pool
to evaluate, but they look bad
time after time.
Good news is UF has a big-
time game against Xavier on
Saturday to snap out of it.
UF needs to shake this one
from its memory, because it
has a tough final stretch. The
Gators must beat Auburn at
home and Georgia on the road
to leave them needing one or
two from the following: Ole
Miss, Tennessee, Vanderbilt
and Kentucky.
The path would be easier if
UF took care of business in Co-
lumbia.
Just like last year.

Gators return all three starting outfielders in 2010


* MEGAN BUSH'S MOVE TO
1B ALLOWS KELSEY BRUD-
ER TO STAY IN RIGHT FIELD.

By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer

Although 2010 is being billed
as a year of change for the Florida
softball team, the Gators have the
luxury of returning all three out-
fielders that started the final game
of the 2009 season.
With Francesca Enea and Kelsey
Bruder back to man the corners
and the speedy Michelle Moultrie
stepping into a starting role in cen-
ter field, UF's outfield is certainly
of the caliber that is expected from
the No. 3 team in the nation.
Even though it comes as no sur-
prise that all three players are back
on the roster, there was reason to
believe things might be looking a
little different defensively.
At the end of the 2009 season,
there was speculation that Brud-
er would be moving from right
field back to first base, where she
played during the early part of her
career. However, a lack of depth in
the outfield and a few adjustments
in the infield have allowed the All-
Southeastern Conference first team
and All-SEC defensive team mem-
ber to stay out in right.
"Kelsey was too valuable in the
outfield and Megan (Bush) made a
great transition to first," coach Tim
Walton said.
For as valuable as Bruder is in


the outfield, she might be even
more valuable at the plate.
Last season she hit .369 with 16
home runs and 68 RBI, while set-
ting a UF single season record in
total bases and tying the record for
slugging percentage.
Still, the junior sees plenty of
ways she can make her game even
better.
"There's definitely always room


for improvement, and I've been
working really hard with coach be-
fore practice just getting my timing
right and getting my swing back,"
Bruder said.
Enea, who is tied with Bruder
for the slugging percentage mark,
also owns single season records in
home runs and RBIs after hitting
18 and 70 a season ago.
Still, her biggest contribution to


the team might come in the form of
her leadership ability.
"Francesca is the one person if I
had to put my hat on somebody as
being a leader," Walton said.
Walton feels that he has a team
full of leaders, but Enea is clearly
the most vocal of the bunch.
"I just think that with two se-
niors and a large junior class the
best thing we offer is the experi-

season last year.


ence we all have playing in high
pressure situations," Enea said.
"We can really help younger play-
ers and tell them what to do in
those situations and make sure
they're doing the right stuff."
If experience under pressure is
the key to success, then Moultrie
should be well on her way.
Coming into last season, the
plan was for Moultrie to split time
in center with senior Kim Waleszo-
nia. But Waleszonia fractured her
knee early in the year, giving Moul-
trie a chance to prove herself full
time, and she didn't disappoint.
From that point on she found her
way into the starting lineup on nu-
merous occasions, and that expe-
rience should make stepping into
her role this year that much easier.
"She's not taking on more than
she's had before, but the expecta-
tions are a little higher than last
season," Walton said.
Moultrie's transition should
also be eased by the presence of
Enea, who was recently one of the
fifty players named to the USA
Softball Player of the Year Pre-
season Watch List.
"I just try to make her feel as
comfortable as possible," Enea
said. "The outfielders are a relaxed
group, but we take the position se-
riously. It's about being able to re-
lax, being comfortable, and having
confidence in yourself. We want to
help you learn from your mistakes
and make sure you don't repeat
them."


UF WOMEN"S GOLF

Florida improves three spots to finish in ninth place

The Gators women's golf team found redemption at the
Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge, finishing in ninth
place with a total score of 911 (304-309-298, +59).
Even though UF jumped up three spots Wednesday, it was
not the result the team expected heading into the competition.
"Overall it wasn't the best week for the Gators," coach Jan
Dowling said. "We actually rebounded pretty well, I'm pretty
proud of them and the way they turned it around. We've got
a lot of things to work on, moving forward, however I think
this golf course was probably a great golf course for us to be
playing first thing this year. You can't hide any weakness on
this course."
Freshman Isabelle Lendl proved herself in her second-con-

secutive round as the leader for Florida. She ended the tourna-
ment carding a 73 for a total of 222 (79-70-73, +9). Lendl started
at the 14th hole and shot a back-to-back birdie-bogey combo,
followed by a double bogey. She picked up her game after
carding three more birdies.
"We are really proud of Isabelle," Dowling said. "She had
a really good tournament. [With] this course you've got to be
playing well; every part of your game has to be on...She obvi-


ously chipped the putter well and she hit the fairways and hit a
lot of greens...she deserves this."
Following 17 spots behind, junior Jessica Yadloczky fin-
ished in a tie for 28th. Her three-round total came to 228, after a
+2 round Wednesday. Yadloczky balanced out her score with
four bogeys and two birdies.
Sophomore Marika Lendl finished five behind her team-
mate in 33rd, carding her lowest round of the tournament in
the third round with a four-over 75. She ended the tournament
with an overall score of 229 (77-77-75, +16). Lendl picked up
her four extra strokes with two bogeys and a double-bogey.
Sophomore Evan Jensen and freshman Mia Piccio rounded
out the Gators lineup, finishing in a tie for 61st and 67th, re-
spectively.
Piccio bettered her second round score by one stroke
Wednesday for a tournament total of 238 (77-81-80, +25).


Zaiser's return, Green's emergence help beam scores


Gators ranked in top 10 in event


By TOM GREEN
Alligator Writer


At the midway point of the season, No.
6 Florida ranks in the top 10 nationally in
every event, but the area the team has im-
proved most since last season has been the
balance beam.
The Gators have averaged 48.875, a
.485-point improvement over the team's av-
erage at the same time last season.
Last year, the team was ravaged
by injuries on the beam, including Re-


bekah Zaiser's broken foot, forcing UF
coach Rhonda Faehn to piece togeth-
er lineups at times during the season.
Lack of depth, however, has not been an is-
sue for Florida this year, as it has 10 gym-
nasts competing for beam lineup spots al-
most every week.
"Whenever you have competition with-
in the team, it makes you stronger," Faehn
said.
Zaiser, a senior, has returned from two
major surgeries to lead off the event for
UF, and Faehn said Zaiser's discipline and


work ethic have meant a lot to the team.
Part of that competitiveness Faehn sees dur-
ing practice comes from the push that Zaiser
brings to the team.
Possibly the biggest im-
pact on the team's beam
performance has been the
emergence of freshman
Liz Green, who has taken
home the event title for
three-consecutive meets.
"She's a natural beam-
er," Faehn said. "She's aggressive, she
doesn't hold back and she combines the dif-
ficulty, the flexibility, the grace and the art-
istry. She's the total package up there."


Green just enrolled in classes this semes-
ter but said the coaches told her to be pre-
pared to compete right off the bat once she
got to Gainesville. In just her second week
on campus, she competed in the team's sea-
son-opener against Oklahoma.
Although she didn't participate on beam
against the Sooners, Green's recent perfor-
mances has her ranked 13th nationally, av-
eraging 9.831, and her three beam titles are
tops among the Gators.
"I really wasn't expecting to come in
right away and have this much success,"
Green said. "I just expected to do my best
and hit my routines, and that's just what I've
done."
