Students raise $517K for children's charity


* THE EVENT RAISED ABOUT
$100,000 MORE THAN THE
PREVIOUS YEAR.

By MELINDA CARSTENSEN
Alligator Contributing Writer

The O'Connell Center erupted
with the cheers of 725 sleep-de-
prived dancers Sunday afternoon
when UF's Dance Marathon staff
members announced they raised
a record-breaking $517,260.79 to
help sick children, an increase
of more than $100,000 from last
year's earnings.
The dancers stood for 26.2
hours this weekend in support of
the Children's Miracle Network
at Shands Children's Hospital at
UF.
The network, a nonprofit orga-
nization, raises funds to improve
children's health through educa-
tion, research and medical care.
Each year, 129 U.S. universities
hold a dance marathon similar to
UF's.
Tracy Flack, UF journalism se-
nior and spokeswoman for Dance
Marathon at UF, said the large
increase in the amount of money
raised can be contributed to the


the hard work and passion of the booths to raise money through-
dancers and more than 350 staff out the weekend, and about 60
members. student organizations have been

group-dance during Dance Marathon in the O'Connell Center Saturday evening.


Sorority received the Miracle Cup
for earning the most combined
spirit points, or participation
points, and for raising the most
money.
Throughout the weekend, more
than 30 miracle families, stood on
stage, shared their stories and
thanked the dancers for support-
ing their children, who have been
treated or are being treated at
Shands Children's Hospital.
One of these families, the But-
lers, stood on stage and told the
dancers about 1-year-old Charli,
who was diagnosed with a brain
tumor when she was 5-months-
old.
"Thank you for being a part of
making miracles happen and real-
izing there's a bigger picture," said
Jamie Butler, Charli's mother.
Jamie, along with her husband
Aaron Butler, who returned from
serving in Afghanistan the day
Charli was diagnosed, visited
their daughter at Shands for more
than seven months. After being
given a one in two chance of sur-
viving and enduring several rig-
orous chemotherapy treatments,
Charli is finally in remission from
her cancer, Jamie said.

Census deadline looms


By TYLER JETT
Alligator Writer

Residents hoping to avoid a knock
on their door by U.S. Census Bureau
officials this summer should complete
their forms today.
The bureau will create a list contain-
ing the addresses of every household
that has not mailed in the 10-question,
government-issued form by the end of
the day.
That list will then be given to cen-
sus takers, who have been hired by the
bureau to go to each house that has not


participated.
As of Sunday, 63 percent of Alachua
County residents have mailed their
census forms.
The census takers will begin visiting
homes May 1 and will ask
Local the same questions that
News are on the form.
If nobody is home the
first time a worker tries to visit, he or
she will return to the house up to two
more times to get the information.
The bureau, which is financed by
taxpayers, funds the census takers.

Memorial program focuses


on gay Holocaust victims


By KATIE EVANS

In honor of Holocaust Remembrance
Day, Geoffrey Giles began his dissection
of the Nazi mind with a message not
conventionally tied to the genocide of
six million Jews.
"Adolf Hitler was not particularly
anti-Semitic," he told the audience of
about 350.
Instead of focusing solely on the Jew-
ish demographic, the program remem-
bered victims from the gay community
Sunday night at the B'nai Israel Jewish


Center.
This year's Holocaust memorial ex-
amined the persecution and violence
targeted against German homosexuals
by the Nazi regime.
"Adolf Hitler was not particularly

UF chess tournament draws
50 players
Move the queen. Protect the
king.
These thoughts and more went
through the minds of the partici-
pants at UF's spring chess tour-
nament held Sunday at the Reitz
Union. About 50 people participat-
ed in the tournament hosted by the
Gator Chess Club.
Britt Ryerson, the club's team
captain, acted as tournament direc-
tor and moderated the event us-
ing the Swiss method of playing,
which means no one gets elimi-
nated. Instead, winners advance
to play other winners while those
who lose play others who have lost
matches.
"It allows everyone to play ev-
ery game," he said.
Ryerson was also responsible
for ensuring that the pairings,
which are based on a player's rank-
ing, were fair.
The tournament was part of
a series of changes for the club
this year, including a new faculty
adviser, John Harris, and tourna-
ments for each season.
Jad Helmy, 6, got his start in
a club at his elementary school a
year ago. He came into this tourna-
ment fresh off of a sixth place fin-
ish at the SuperStates tournament
in Miami.
Jad, who has a private chess
coach, said chess isn't that hard to

play. His mom, Hania, encour-
ages his love of the game and
takes him to about five competi-
tions per year. She said Jad par-
ticipates at the state level and is
going to nationals competition
next month.
Though Ryerson's favorite
aspect of the game is the compe-
tition. He said it offers benefits
to young players, such as good
sportsmanship, thinking before
making a move and enhanced
math and reading abilities.
"It's good for kids to learn for
the life lessons it can teach," Ry-
erson said.

UF to take part in Be Hope
to Her event
Left, right, left, right. Pause.
An African girl shoulders the
burden of retrieving water for
her family. On average, a female
in Africa walks 30 minutes to a
water source, waits in line, fills
up a bucket and balances it on
her head as she trudges back.
Left, right, left, right. Pause.
On Monday, more than 20
UF students will shuffle through
campus with canary yellow
buckets of water teetering on
their heads. UF will be one of
several college campuses in the
nation participating in the Be
Hope to Her event next week.
About 50 more people are ex-
pected to register as the event ap-
proaches. The event is hosted by
Nuru, a nonprofit international
organization whose name means
"light" in Swahili, and its goal is
to raise awareness of the need for
clean drinking water in Africa.
Nuru also strives to raise
funds in support of sustainabil-
ity projects in Kenya to help keep
girls in school. Girls who don't
finish school marry earlier, have
more children and are at a great-
er risk for HIV, according to the
organization's Web site.
The funds raised will benefit
the construction of water sourc-
es, such as wells, closer to com-
munities to limit the amount of
trips females have to make dur-
ing the day.
By limiting the amount of
trips, girls will be able to spend
more time in school and, in turn,
increase their options in life.
"She needs knowledge. She
needs opportunity, and she


needs hope," said a promotional
video on Nuru's Web site. "Be
hope to her."
Although the event has been
occurring nationally for several
years, it is the first time UF is par-
ticipating.
Jenn Jeske, a 21-year-old UF
student and liaison to Nuru, was
inspired last semester by her pas-
tor to promote awareness and
bring the event to her campus.
"It is my personal belief that
God has called us to do what we
can to help the poor and needy,"
she said. "I can do that through
this organization."
Jeske and five other students
began planning the event in Feb-
ruary. During their weekly meet-
ings, they have discussed funding
issues.
On Thursday from 6 p.m. to 8
p.m., they will have a fundraiser at
Pazza Bistro. The proceeds will be
donated to Nuru.
In addition to fundraising, the
event also calls for an $8 registra-
tion fee, which pays for the ship-
ping cost of supplies, such as buck-
ets and water.
On Monday, participants will
begin their journey on the Plaza of
the Americas.
They will then trek through
Turlington and Reitz Union until
they reach a pile of yellow buck-
ets next to an inflatable pool in
the Tolbert area. They will fill the
5-gallon buckets with the water in
the pool and go back to the Plaza
of the Americas.
Twenty students have regis-
tered on the organization's Web
site, www.nuruintemational.org.
However, the planning team hopes
to have 50 people by Monday.
Cari Walker, a 20-year-old UF
student on the planning team,
hopes the arduous process will in-
spire students to donate to Nuru's
cause.
"It will literally let us walk in
their shoes," she said. "And we
will be able to see how much those
shoes hurt."

high-flying Method grab at Lake Wauburg Saturday afternoon.


STUDENT LIFE

Students compete in Wakefest


By KATHERINE BEIN
Alligator Writer

Saturday was about more than
football for the 23 people who
dragged 70-feet behind a boat and
launched from the waves into the
air at Lake Wauburg Saturday.
The Gator Wake and Ski Club
held UF Wakefest 2010 to raise
money for their upcoming trip to
San Diego, where they will defend
their title in the Jack in the Box Col-
lege Wakeboard Nationals.
The event was free to the public
on Lake Wauburg, which is 8 miles
south of UF campus on Highway
441.
Food, merchandise and raffle
tickets could be purchased on-site
with prizes including T-shirts and
tickets to the Wakegames in Orlan-
do on May 1 and 2.
For a fee of $20, 23 members and
non-members alike competed in
wakeskating or wakeboarding at
the novice, intermediate or outlaw
levels.
Brandon Brouil won the inter-
mediate level and Ryan Mocerino
won the outlaw level, the highest
level.


The winners received wake-
boarding boots and grips.
Wakeboarders are strapped
onto their board by boots while
wakeskaters simply balance on
their boards, similar to skateboard-
ers.
Last week the club competed re-
gionally, qualifying to compete in
San Diego on May 15 and 16.

"It's the thrill of it. It's a lot
of fun. You get to hang out
on a boat all day."
Matt Morgan
The Gator Wake and Ski Club
president

Club president Matt Morgan
said Saturday's activities were
more relaxed. The stakes weren't
high and the atmosphere was one
of "playful competitiveness."
Morgan, an electrical engineer-
ing junior, has been wakeboarding
for about seven years and said he
loves the chance to get out on the
water.
"It's the thrill of it," he said. "It's
a lot of fun. You get to hang out on
a boat all day."


Athletes are judged based on the
tricks they pull off, their style on
the water and in the air, as well as
the height of their jumps and flips.
Carolyn Fortson, a senior chemi-
cal engineering student who will be
entering the competition in San Di-
ego undefeated, admitted the sport
can take some time to master.
"It's a hard learning curve," she
said. "It's easy to pick up but dif-
ficult to get better."
But sophomore biology major
Lauren Protzer doesn't think the
difficulties of the sport should turn
people away.
"It's the best feeling," Protzer
said. "Being out on the water, be-
ing on a boat with your friends."
The event raised between $500
and $700, said Cori Lorelli, a mem-
ber of the Gator Wake and Ski
Club.
UF students interested in giving
wakeboarding a shot can take ad-
vantage of the professional instruc-
tors at the lake for free, by calling
and scheduling an appointment,
or by checking out the Gator Wake
and Ski Club at their Facebook
page.


Fla. Attorney General candidate makes two-day visit


* DAVE ARONBERG SPOKE AT THE
REITZ UNION TO ABOUT 25 PEOPLE.
By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Staff Writer

For some, the Florida attorney general's
position may be seen as just another politi-
cal stepping stone to bigger and better of-
fices.
For Sen. Dave Aronberg, it's his dream
job.
"The revolving door of professional
politicians has to end," he said. "This is not
Plan B. This is my passion."
Speaking before a crowd of about 25
people at the Reitz Union, Aronberg, who


is vying for the Democratic nomination this
August, made a promise to those present.
"If you get me through this primary,
we're going to win this thing," he said.
"We're going to win this together."
The discussion was part of Aronberg's
two-day visit to Gainesville. He also spoke
at the Lubavitch-Chabad Jewish Student &
Community Center and the Florida College
Democrats' spring convention.
Aronberg, who at 38 is the youngest
member of the Florida Senate, believes
that his experience, particularly his tenure
under Attorney General Bob Butterworth,
makes him the ideal candidate.
Currently, Aronberg is facing Florida


Sen. Dan Gelber in the Democratic pri-
mary, which is slated to occur Aug. 24. If
nominated, he will go up against either Jeff
Kottkamp, Holly Benson, Pam Bondi or Jim
Lewis.
Although he is confident about his chanc-
es, Aronberg refused to
Around look forward, saying that
Gainesville he will take his campaign
one step at a time.
"The political graveyard is strewn with
people who looked ahead," he said.
Calling the recent passage of Florida
Senate Bill 6 "blatantly unconstitutional,"
Aronberg said that if elected attorney gen-
eral, he would not defend future lawsuits


against the bill.
"If you love the FCAT, you'll love Sen-
ate Bill 6," he said. "It's the FCAT on ste-
roids."
Senate Bill 6, which passed the Florida
House of Representatives last week, intro-
duced a system of merit pay for Florida's
teachers.
John Fox, a political science graduate
student, was impressed by Aronberg and
believes that he has the ability to relate to
students.
"He's clearly one of the brightest politi-
cians in the state of Florida, and he'll get the
job done," Fox said. "Dave Aronberg was
born to be attorney general."

20 compete in kickboxing, Muay


By SAMANTHA DELGADO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Country music and cowboy
boots were replaced by martial arts
fighters at :08 on Saturday night
when Florida Fight Nights took
over the dance floor.
Twenty fighters competed in 10,
three-round fights in both Muay
Thai and kickboxing.
About 850 onlookers crowded
around the boxing ring in the mid-
dle of the dance floor at the club
or watched from a balcony as the
figh's participants showcased their
skills and tactics, according to Matt
Wideman, the fight night event's
coordinator.
Muay Thai is an aggressive fight-
ing style in which fighters can lock
limbs and elbow and knee their op-
ponents below the shoulders.
The fight's participants wear
headgear, mouth guards and
gloves, according to ikfkickboxing.
com.
In kickboxing, fighters are al-
lowed to kick below the waist, and
they can kick or hit each other on
the head.


They are not permitted to use
their knees, and headgear is op-
tional, according to ikfkickboxing.

Standard admission tickets cost

But Wideman pointed out that
it is not about the money.
"It's more about promoting
Muay Thai and martial arts," he
said.
He said there are not many ven-

amateur fighters to get their names
out to the public, and this was just
a stepping stone for them to take it

Professor, mental illness expert explains Baker Act


Editor's Note: An article published April 8
briefly outlined what would have hap-
pened to Kofi Adu-Brempong had he
been submitted under the Baker Act. This
article offers further clarification about
what this law entails.

* IN 2006, 121,551 PEOPLE WERE
SUBMITTED IN FLA. UNDER THE ACT.

By MINCH MINCHIN
Alligator Writer

Every four and a half minutes, one per-
son in Florida is submitted under the Baker
Act.


The act gives law enforcement personnel,
judges and mental health professionals the
ability to send mental patients to hospitals
and clinics against their will for the purpose
of decreasing their chances of being taken
to jail.
Kofi Adu-Brempong, the 35-year-old
Ghanan graduate student who was shot and
arrested in his apartment last month, was
not submitted under the Baker Act.
The law states that people may be invol-
untarily submitted under the Baker Act if
there is reason to believe they are mentally
ill and are likely to either suffer neglect or
cause harm to themselves or others.
"The whole point of the Baker Act is to
protect the vulnerable," said Bruce Stevens,


co-president of the local National Alliance
on Mental Illness chapter and a professor in
the UF College of Medicine.
The submitter does not necessarily have
to witness the patient's behavior but must
have a "reason to believe" that harm will re-
sult if nothing is done.
This reason may be based upon the sworn
testimony of a patient's friends
Special or family members.
Report The Baker Act states that a
patient should be taken to the
nearest approved hospital or clinic, and he
or she should be examined by a physician or

Engineering students race hydrogen-run 'cougar'

Students from the UF Chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers prepare "The
Cougar" for the 66-feet stretch at the Chem-E-Car Competition.


Comeback came in the form of a
cougar for a group of UF students
Saturday.
Twenty-four students from
the UF Chapter of the American
Institute of Chemical Engineers
(AIChE) raced their way to victory
at the Chem-E-Car Competition
with their shoebox-sized creation,
"The Cougar."
The team, which traveled to
North Carolina State University for
the competition, was not allowed to
compete last year because the team
did not meet safety requirements.
A group of 15 students from
the organization worked on the
car from last August until compe-
tition time. The team spent about
two months designing the car and
about three months building it, ac-
cording to John Moh, chairman of
UF's Chem-E-Car.
The car cost $850 to build and
runs on hydrogen.
During the competition, the car
must attempt to drive exactly 66
feet, and the car that stops the clos-
est wins. Only three members of the
team were allowed in the competi-
tion area to prep and start the car.


fthe
peti-


tion because our whole team and
the officers were cheering us on,"
said Moh, who was one of the three
members allowed in the race area.
For the past five to seven years,
UF has not done very well in the
competition due to lack of dedica-
tion and motivation, Moh said.
"This year, the team members
were dedicated and gave great de-
sign ideas," he said. "We worked
very hard and had several no-sleep
nights."
The UF team beat 13 other teams
and won $300, which will be given
to the chapter.
"I can't say that we expected to
win, but the team put in a lot of hard
work and time," said Ben Soucy,
president of UF's AIChE. "Winning
definitely showed us that our hard
work paid off."
"As the president, I couldn't
have asked for a better experience,"
Soucy said. "To see UF win and to
see the excitement of the team that
was amazing."
The car competition was part of
the AIChE annual conference held
over the weekend, and the victory
qualified the team to compete in the
national competition in the fall.

Unclean Coal

Mining tragedy reflects

bigger problem
The April 5 explosion that led to the death of 29 miners
in West Virginia was horrific. It was traumatic. And
even to Gators more than 600 miles away, it was heart-
breaking.
As diversified as we are by race, religion, sexual orientation
and socioeconomic status, we Gators always seem to be able
to join hands when it's needed most. We did it for Haiti. We
donate blood in drives across campus daily. And we did it this
weekend, raising more than half a million dollars for the Chil-
dren's Miracle Network at Dance Marathon.
Say what you want about those two-stepping, Macarena-
playing, shoulder-leaning sorority women and fraternity men,
but those kids braved exhaustion and gonna'-need-some-Dr.-
Scholl's-pads-soon warnings in their Sperry's to donate more
than $500,000 to a worthy cause.
The situation in West Virginia, the death of 29 of our fellow
Americans, is just another example of why we need to stand up
like the Boys of Old Florida that we are and act.
The death of the miners was heartbreaking, yes. But the
deaths were also unnecessary and avoidable. The explosion that
sent the miners to an untimely death in the mines that let them
live electrifies exactly why there's no such thing as clean coal.
We must join forces one more time, Gators, and demand for
a more sustainable future in which King Coal does not sit atop
his throne, wielding power unlike any president has ever pos-
sessed. Coal pollutes our air. The mining process often destroys
our mountaintops, and, even if rarely, it directly leads to the
death of our fellow men.
We must demand a future for our children that does not in-
volve air-quality levels lower than an anorexia joke at the Olsen
Twins' birthday party. Because the future of not only coal min-
ers across the world but our Mother Earth depend on it.



Fore-give and Fore-get


Apparently adultery is
more forgivable than
L t used to be.
Tiger Woods made his
return to the golf course this
weekend at The Masters in
Augusta, Ga., after a five-
month hiatus, and America,
just like it has throughout
the entire saga, couldn't look
away. ESPN had about 5 mil-
lion viewers for its Masters
coverage, 47 percent higher
than it did for last year's first-
round coverage.
Some tuned in to see what
would happen in the next
chapter of Woods' story; the
same voyeuristic attitude has
prevailed since Woods' wife,
Elin, chased him out of the
house wielding a 9-iron on
Thanksgiving night. But oth-
ers tuned in to cheer him on in
his return. And should we re-
ally be surprised that Woods
is working his way back onto
the public's good side? He is
hardly the first athlete to have


his reputation tarnished and
then returns to the top of his
profession. Kobe Bryant was
charged with rape in 2003 and
since then has been to three
NBA Finals. And he has had
the top-selling jersey in the
NBA the last two years.
And of course, as soon as
the fans are back in Woods'
comer, advertisers are return-
ing as well. Advertisers had
been avoiding Woods like he
had the plague. He doesn't,
but a few STDs may not be
out of the realm of possibility.
But last week Nike unveiled
a new commercial featuring
Woods, with a voice-over by
his deceased father (creepy?).
Tiger is back, he finished
fourth at The Masters, and ev-
erything will be soon be back
to normal. And why would
we expect anything different?
This is America, and stories
like this in the lives of athletes
and celebrities are all too com-
mon.

Bagram, Kandahar stops on Lame Train


f you've been hearing a low rumble or seeing a faint col-
umn of smoke off in the distance, perhaps traveling in the
direction of Afghanistan, be alarmed.
It's The Lame Train, and the next two stops are Ba-
gram and Kandahar Air Bases. This thumbs-up crushing,
awesomeness stifling locomotive was last seen stationed
at our beloved university in the form of a certain game-
that-must-not-be-named, as well as under the guise of a
particular letter's author.
Said author made it very clear to everyone he is a patron
of The New Yorker, and he wasn't pulling any punches
last week in asserting his disappointment with some col-
umnists' lack of seriousness, yours truly included. Well,
point awarded to Culture Queen, because the first thing
readers need on a Monday morning is a strong cup of ce-
rebral pace-putting to start the week off right.
Apparently, it's a real inconvenience if the Opinions
section isn't Gladwelling it up on a daily basis. Long story
short: when it comes to the Opinions section, we're giving
and you're taking.
But I digress.
To many a soldier's dismay, stationing of The Lame Train
was official when it was recently announced that a food or
recreation area in Kandahar dubbed "The Boardwalk" and
its slightly smaller cousin in Bagram, which I'm assuming is
dubbed "Lil' B," will be losing many of their anchor eating
establishments, notably Burger King, Pizza Hut and TGI Fri-
day's, among several others. I was initially caught off guard
by the fact that Burger King was even there in the first place:
It's an army of one; you can't have it your way. Even still, I
wasn't fully aware of how entrenched these microcosms of
gastro-Americana were. If I'd known I could be in the ass-
crack of the world and still be able to get my Orange-Julius
fix, I'd have given at least three more seconds of consideration
toward suiting up before deciding to retreat to Gainesville.


It seems this news shouldn't have
come as terribly surprising, given
that the conductor of this, Gen. Stan-
ley McChrystal, had given alcohol
the boot from Kabul headquarters
back in 2008. I'm sure some troops
Ryan Spencer saw this most recent ban on the hori-
letters@alligator org zon and, preparing for the inevitable,
commenced filling themselves with
stuffed crust personal pans in the
mean time. The explanatory statement that's been making its
rounds in the press clearly describes Afghanistan as "a war
zone not an amusement park."
I find decisions like this, and specifically this one's ratio-
nale, to be unnecessarily condescending, as soldiers need
only to step outside the entrances of those momentary re-
minders of what they're defending (and now completely
sacrificing, as well) to realize they're in "the suck." But why
stop at junk food? Why not ban the USO, photos and family
contact altogether? After all, it's a war zone not a rock con-
cert or family reunion. At least the level of absurdity in that
case would be, well, absurd in and of itself, thus making the
crazy kind of sense that reeks distinctly of our soldiers being
short-changed, courtesy of The Lame Train.
If those further suggestions don't sit well with you, and
I can only guess why they wouldn't, why not support our
troops the new fashioned way, with a junk food boycott? If
properly executed, once Yum! Brands and friends see their
revenue streams in jeopardy, they'll waste no time in flexing
their corporate muscle (read: dollars) in Washington's direc-
tion with the aim of getting their Afghan franchises up and
running again. One can only dream, though, because despite
the fact that military support is endemic in this country, I
doubt it's enough to overcome the majority of Americans'
inability to fit into anything under a size 40.

Embracing Confederacy means celebrat-
ing self-government
Paul Murty, to say all people who embrace
the Confederacy are racists is a racist statement
in itself. I have two Confederate flag bumper
stickers on my truck, and I am far from a racist.
To me that flag means that the states were not
going to let the federal government tell them
how to govern. Was slavery a big part of that?
Yes, but that does not mean I fly that flag or
put it on my truck to say that I want that part
of history to change. It just means I don't want
the federal government to tell me or my state
what I can and can't do, like making me buy
health care if I do not want helath care. It's my
choice to make.

Student Body deserves explanation from
UF administration
During my four years at UF, it was obvious
that Bernie Machen's administration had zero
concern for the Student Body. When Andrew
Meyer was Tasered, when the Graduate Assis-
tants United asked for slightly higher pay to
teach classes, and when entire programs were
cut without student input, the administration
stood squarely against the students. Maybe it
is fortunate that the worst offense to the Stu-
dent Body came the year after I graduated and
migrated north. Even if the brutal maiming of
Kofi Adu-Brempong was somehow justified,
it is the administration's duty to stand up for
its students. The University Police Department
exists to protect the Student Body, and when
a student is left with gruesome injuries at the
hands of a UPD officer, the Student Body de-
serves an explanation and an investigation.
Machen and the UF administration have


once again failed the Student Body; blessing
a handful of students with a meeting is not
enough to fulfill the obligations that Machen
is handsomely paid to perform. It has never
been more clear that this university needs a
new direction and new leadership. We need
a university president whose loyalty and re-
sponsibilities don't end with collecting a mas-
sive paycheck, and we need justice for the UF
Student Body.

Reader: naive columnist uses weak
examples
It is unfortunate that Paul Murty would
choose to proliferate the "conservatives are
racists" narrative, and to do it with such a
weak example. Poll after poll shows that a ma-
jority of Americans (especially independents)
are opposed to the power grab that is the trag-
ic "health reform" bill. The left has found it im-
perative to label opposition racist as opposed
to arguing against the substantive points
that dissenters put forth. After all, who cares
what one has to say once that person has been
branded a bigot, homophobe, racist, etc.?
Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell's proclama-
tion would help tourism. After all, the slogan
"Virginia is for lovers" was originally the tour-
ism ad "Virginia is for history lovers." Virginia
was the home to a multitude of important Civ-
il War battles and the sites are often visited. A
remembrance of the ancestors who fought and
died in the bloodiest war in American history
does not equal a call to the return of slavery.
But Mr. Murty knows that, and anything he
can use to paint conservatives as racists is the
most effective way to discredit their substan-
tive opposition to this administration's poli-


cies. Frankly, I've come to expect nothing less
than this sort of naivety from Mr. Murty this
semester.

Reader angry over obnoxious letter con-
cerning shooting
I'd like to congratulate Chase Adler, author
of the incredibly juvenile and insensitive letter
to the editor this past Friday, for submitting
the most idiotic note I have seen at my time
at UF. We apologize that this whole hoopla
over Kofi is "tiring" you. It must be hard to sit
around all day and read about the obnoxious
details of an innocent man's inhumane treat-
ment at the hands of an officer with a track
record of racist acts. It's apathy like yours and
an unwillingness to gain insight on the facts
(for one, a mental health crisis does not call for
five armed police officers, but rather a trained
professional who can properly assist in the
situation) that perpetuates and enables crimes
such as police brutality. Rather than make a
sweeping claim that "There is no such thing
as police brutality," take off your stupid col-
lege kid blinders and attempt to really educate
yourself on the case and the realities that oth-
ers who are not so privileged as yourself face.

Romance separates chivalry from good
manners
Thank you Rosette Charles. Chivalry is not
dead, but that is not the issue here.
Amelia Harnish states "some of us still
expect the damsel-in-distress treatment, and


MONDAY, APRIL 12, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 7



some of us, regrettably, abuse it." While this is
true and sad, it does not relate to most points
mentioned in the column. The responsibility
of buying dinner or drinks falls upon the host,
the person who invites guests to an event and
pays for the guests' (read: date) meals. The
important lesson here is that chivalry is not
required to be a well-mannered individual. I
found it interesting that while Harnish asks
the gentlemen not to confuse manners and
chivalry, she is the one who mixed them up.
The difference between a well-mannered man
and a chivalrous man is simply the romance.
For example, a well-mannered man knows
to bring flowers to a date, but a chivalrous
man will know your favorite flowers. Harnish
states that "[at] the root of the chivalry con-
cept is that we are somehow incompetent."
Why do we, women, only see this antiquated
reasoning and not see the polite man who is
smitten enough to pull out our chair? Come on
ladies, open your eyes and appreciate the man
who is trying to impress you.
Michael Perrone had a more realistic vision
of the modem context of chivalry, albeit slight-
ly offensive in word choice. He was on point
when he mentioned that chivalry is pointless
in a bar, for both sexes. In addition, who is the
host? Gentlemen, your best bet is to talk to the
lady for a few minutes before ordering drinks;
chances are, if she only wants the free drink,
she won't hang around long enough to wait
for it.
Unfortunately, it is usually the ladies who
kill chivalry. Remember, it is not always that
the gentleman must buy dinner but the host
or hostess. Yes ladies, if you invite a man out
to dinner, you should expect to pay and do so
willingly. Only a truly chivalrous gentleman
will insist.

Democrats drop like
though I've never fully understood the expression, con-
gressional Democrats are keeping true to the English
idiom and dropping like flies. Most recently on the no-
go list for November is Rep. Bart Stupak (of "Stupak Amend-
ment" fame). Let's have a walk down memory lane, shall we?
By last December 10 House Democrats had artfully announced

Student Body should be more open minded toward peers, life


Walking around campus
last week, you may have
been confused. Is it Tur-
lington Plaza or a war zone? Is it
the Reitz Union North Lawn or no
man's land? Humans vs. Zombies
has invited students to see things in
a different way. The Student Body
has, for the most part, declined the
invitation.
I have a more positive attitude
toward the situation. As a senior,
I feel above the game. Then again,
I graduate in less than a month, so
I feel above basically everything at
this point. It doesn't mean I actu-
ally disapprove. In fact, last week
I was an innocent civilian walking


through Turlington to class when
I heard a voice calling, "arm your-
self! Arm yourself!"
It was a girl with a Nerf gun im-
ploring one of her fellow humans,
who was casually chatting with
someone at the bike racks near the
overhang, to prepare against an
impending zombie attack. The girl
shouting was earnestly motioning
with her hand for the unprotected
human to take refuge with her band
of bandana-wearing compatriots.
They were huddled behind the
brick wall, near the soda machines.
The human, meanwhile, was more
interested in flirting. "It's danger-
ous out there, man!" the girl tried,

Bad move. I'm sure she was
killed a few minutes later. I just
played war correspondent and
copied down the exchange on my
way to class. "That girl is in a great
hiding spot," I thought. I'd never
thought of that gap between the
overhang and the brick wall as
being a great place to shoot guns
from. You learn something new ev-
ery day.
It's my guess that the reason


people don't like Humans vs. Zom-
bies is precisely because it suggests
there are other ways to consider the
world. Most college students hat-
ing on it are too old to play games.
This is surprising to me, because
play is the best way we have of be-
ing open-minded. How are we sup-
posed to appreciate other cultures,
value other religions and respect
alternative gender identities if we
aren't willing to practice doing it
around campus with our friends?
Have you ever paid attention
to the potato on Turlington? I hear
it's a 10-ton, 30,000 year old slab
of chert rock that was donated to
the UF Geology Department by


the Crushed Stone Corporation. I
suggest you touch it. Here's what I
mean. All the random crap around
campus, like the art near the new
physics building, gives the impres-
sion that it's delicate. But the Tur-
lington potato is not going to fall
over if you touch it. In fact, you can
climb on it, hang from it, kiss the
top of it for good luck before tests,
and it won't budge an inch.
So if you're not going to throw
socks at people or gun them down
with foam darts while avoiding by-
standers, open your mind and push
the Turlington potato.

About 400 undie dashers strip for those in need


UF students Cameron Heard, Bryan AhIstrand and Alex Garmendia stand near the clothes donation pile on
Turlington Plaza Friday night while others prepare for the Great Underwear Dash 2010.


By ANDREW PANTAZI
Alligator Contributing Writer

More than 400 students
stripped to their bras, man-thongs
and underwear for the 11th Great
Underwear Dash Friday night.
The dash is a charity run held
every semester in which partici-
pants donate clothes to the Salva-
tion Army.
At Friday's event, partici-
pants collected enough clothing
to fill 26 30-gallon garbage bags.
Jorge Gomez, a UF electrical en-
gineering graduate student, or-
ganized the nearly naked event.
"I really don't do anything. I
set the date, and I take the clothes
to Salvation Army," said Gomez,
who has run in the dash since his
freshman year. "But the run is
what the runners make of it, and
it's really their spirit that keeps
this going."
Gomez said the event sup-
ports a good cause and makes
runners feel connected to their
fellow students, Gomez said.
"I feel like [the dash] is usu-
ally passed on by people who
have done it before. They tell
their freshmen friends," Gomez
said. "You come here and you
get a real atmosphere and an un-
derstanding of what it means to


be a Gator."
Julia Yip, a UF linguistics and
communicative disorders senior,
ran in the dash for the first time.
"It's an interesting charity
because it's exciting to do some-
thing different," Yip said.
Matthias Gritschneder, a Ger-
man post-doctoral student at Pe-
king University in Beijing, was in
Gainesville for an astrophysics
conference. He spotted the half-
clothed runners while leaving
The Swamp Restaurant.
"I didn't expect it at all, but I
think it's a good idea. It's fun for
the people, and it has a benefit as
well," Gritschneder said.
Gritschneder said he might
have participated if
On he was not travel-
Campus ing with a limited
amount of cloth-
ing.
"It is a much funnier way to
donate," Gritschneder said.
Steven McLeod, a chemical
engineering junior, was willing
to strip for the run, but said he

BET show host speaks at UF


* JOHNSON WAS PAID $12,000.

By MEG WAGNER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Jeff Johnson is not an entertainer.
At least that's what he told an audience of
about 75 gathered in the Reitz Union Grand
Ballroom on Friday night.
Despite being an author, news correspon-
dent and motivational speaker, Johnson de-
scribes himself as an activist above all else.
Johnson's discussion, "Unclaimed Legacy:
Who will lead the next social movement?" fo-
cused on social change and ways to prepare
young people to become strong leaders.
Johnson emphasized the idea that the


youngest generation needs to find guidance
in scholarly mentors, not pop culture icons.
"What makes us think that going plati-
num gives you the intellectual capacity to
mentor a generation?" Johnson said.
Johnson, who serves as the managing edi-
tor and chief correspondent for the BET news
talk show "The Truth with Jeff Johnson," also
spoke about the social revolutions of past
generations, such as the civil rights move-
ment.
"How can a generation that was so active-
ly involved in shifting the legal precedent ...
produce a generation of young people who
don't know how to fight?" he said.
He was paid $12,000, according to SG fi-
nance

Club bridges gap with show


By LEANDRA VALENTINE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Rhythmic beats and traditional Af-
rican dance were at the core of the Afri-
can Student Union's 38th annual show-
case held at Lincoln Middle School
Saturday night.
About 250 people attended the event.
Attendees were encouraged to bring
canned goods or make a donation to
the SOS Children's Villages, a family-
based social aid group, and Gators
United for Haiti, according to Roberta
Roberts, ASU's public relations direc-
tor.
The showcase's theme, Bridging the
Gap, was portrayed through a coming-
of-age story following the journey of a
tribal chief's son. Storytellers narrated,
and all performances were tied into the


theme, Roberts said.
Adetola Ilegbusi, the showcase's co-
director, said, the purpose of the event
was to create a level of understanding
among Africans, African-Americans
and Europeans.
"We want to bridge the gap in
a beautiful, pronounced way."

"We want to bridge the gap in a
beautiful, pronounced way," Ilegbusi
said.
Mackenzie Robinson, an anthropol-
ogy junior, said the theme lived up to
its name.
"Although I'm not African," she
said, "I felt so welcomed. It was an im-
mersive experience."

Youth art programs see decreased summer funding


By ROBERT HILSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Dried up grass. Dried up funds. These are
the givens as the summer months approach
in Gainesville, and for William Eyerly, this is
both unfortunate and totally expected.
Eyerly is the executive director of the
Gainesville Association for the Creative Arts
(GACA), and as the final days of this fiscal
year near, he's stuck with the task of parsing
scholarship funds much like a gardener would
ration the final drops from a watering can.
Some of his drama workshop students -
students whose families have paid full tuition
in the past have already asked for aid.
"I'll be honest with you, this summer I'm
going to have to say, 'OK, you've asked for
two classes. Can you just take one so I can give
a class to somebody else?'" Eyerly said.
GACA, a nonprofit specializing in extra-
curricular performing arts, is just one of the


handful of youth-focused arts organizations
straining to make offerings affordable while
still covering operating costs as the economy
continues to stagnate.

"In order for our programs to suc-
ceed, we have to adapt to what's
going on financially."
Gabrielle Byam
camp director for the Hippodrome

The Hippodrome State Theatre is in a simi-
lar fix, tiptoeing the line between compassion
and practicality as it signs up children for
summer camp.
Starting June 14, the theater will open its
doors to three groups of young thespians for
an immersive two- to four-week acting camp.
The session costs $650 for campers older than
6, a price kept level despite rising expenses.
"In order for our programs to succeed, we
have to adapt to what's going on financially,"


said Gabrielle Byam, camp director for the
Hippodrome. "If we were able to do them for
free, we would."
The camp runs for eight hours a day and
would require about six instructors if enroll-
ment reaches its ideal number of 75.
"If you were breaking down an hourly
wage of what somebody made, it would be
criminal," Byam said. "We realize that it's a
hard time to come up with money. We don't
want people to suffer, and we don't want to
make it elitist."
For Gainesville Creative Kids, a 2-year-old
multi-disciplined arts foundation, this means
stretching a $35 enrollment charge to cover
six 45-minute classes among them, hip-hop,
sculpture and theater. It also means relying
heavily on donations and unpaid labor.
"If a parent can't afford to pay for their child
to have class, we try to make an arrangement
where the parent can volunteer for our orga-
nization and the child can come to the classes


at no cost," said Heddy Vernon, co-director of
Gainesville Creative Kids.
As the state confronts a financial shortfall,
competition has spiked to land grants.
Gainesville Creative Kids is new to the
process. It became a nonprofit in September
and has applied for six grants this year, five of
which are pending. The other was denied.
GACA's track record suggests that this is a
common response. Fruitless trips to the capi-
tal and pessimistic near-term prospects have
Eyerly considering bypassing state grants al-
together. He's prepping for a large commu-
nity fundraising campaign, which he said he
hopes will secure funds to preserve the arts in
the Gainesville community.
"All of these things are going to benefit
these kids regardless of where they go in life,"
Eyerly said. "We're really looking at the rise of
the creative class. That's where we really need
to start to focus. Unfortunately, I think we're
losing that."


Members of UF science clubs faceoff at paintball match


* ABOUT 30 PEOPLE
PLAYED.

By MEREDITH RUTLAND
Alligator Contributing Writer

Members of the physics and
astrophysics clubs disagree with
the chemistry club on a lot of
things, among them being which
science is superior and which
group won the annual paintball
match.
About 30 students from the
three clubs went head to head in
paintball Saturday to help deter-
mine which science is better.
The paintball challenge,
which took place at First Strike
Paintball in Newberry, is an
annual challenge between the
chemistry and physics clubs.
The event has gone on for
over five years, said Ron Castel-
lano, faculty adviser to the UF
Chemistry Club and a UF chem-
istry professor.


This year, the Undergraduate
Astrophysics Society joined the
Society of Physics Students in
the battle.
Peter Nguyen, president of
the Society of Physics Students,
said participation in the fight has
been low in recent semesters but
improved this year.
"We've decided to inject some
excitement into it by issuing an
all-out challenge," Nguyen said.
The physics and astrophysics
clubs went head-to-head with
the chemistry club,
On but the winner of
Campus the final match re-
mained unclear,
with both teams claiming they
won.
For most of the day students
mingled with other club mem-
bers and just enjoyed a day of
paintball.
"Paintball is awesome," said
Lucas Medwell, a UF chemistry
major. "It's my first time play-
ing, and I love it already."

Hitler's regime thought gay


men threatened Aryan purity


UF history professor Geoffrey Giles, a leading scholar and educator on the Holocaust, speaks
about homosexuality during the Third Reich at the B'nai Israel Jewish Center Sunday evening.


HOLOCAUST, from page 1

learn about the horrors of the Holo-
caust.
"The Holocaust is something that
really concerns us all in terms of the
relative ease with which hate groups
can really gain support and how eas-
ily that can spiral out of control,"
Giles said.
The program, sponsored by the
Jewish Council of North Central
Florida, included a brief history of
the Holocaust, a candle lighting cer-
emony by survivors and liberators,
musical performances and a discus-
sion by Giles, a UF professor who
specializes in German history.
The Hitler regime considered gay
men to be a threat to the purity of
the Aryan race, similar to how Jews
were perceived.
More than 100,000 homosexuals
were persecuted during World War


Philip Schwartz, a member of the
Holocaust Memorial Program com-
mittee, said the message of the pro-
gram hits close to home, referring
to the mayoral campaign of Craig
Lowe, who, if elected, would be
Gainesville's first openly gay mayor.
"Recent homophobic events in the
city and the efforts
Around to introduce bigot-
Gainesville ry and intolerance
into the mayor's
race showed us that this was a poi-
gnant time for us to introduce this
topic," Schwartz said.
"Nazi Persecution of Homosexu-
als 1933-1945," a traveling exhibit
of the United States Holocaust Me-
morial Museum, will be on display
at the main branch of the Alachua
County Public Library from May 6
through June 30.


Dancers could make Mr. Potato Heads with raw potatoes, googly eyes


DANCE, from page 1


"It's the little things like the double beds
that were donated [by Children's Miracle
Network] that made a difference," Jamie
said in an interview.
When miracle families weren't sharing
their stories, the morale team led the annu-
al line dance, which the dancers performed
once every hour. This year, the 5.5-minute
routine included clips of Lady Gaga's "Bad


Romance," Ricky Martin's "Livin' la Vida
Loca" and "Jailhouse Rock" by Elvis Pres-
ley, among other songs.
There were also different theme hours
to keep participants motivated. During the
Toy Story-themed hour, participants could
make Mr. Potato Heads with raw potatoes,
pipe cleaners, buttons and plastic googly
eyes. There was also a craft-making sta-
tion where dancers could make green alien
headbands and different game stations


"Of all the things I do at UF, I feel
like I make the most of a differ-
ence doing this."
Matt Michel
law student

where they could race toy cars around
cones or play Pictionary.
Dancers could go to the bathroom when
they needed to, and families and friends


could visit, bring food and donate $50 care
packages. But dancers were not allowed
to leave the ground floor of the arena and
had to remain standing until the end of the
marathon at 2:30 p.m. Sunday.
First-year UF law student Matt Michel
danced this year for his seventh time and
said the foot pains are worth it.
"Of all the things I do at UF, I feel like I
make the most of a difference doing this,"
he said.

Gifts for the Graduate


By CRISTINA RABAZA
Alligator Contributing Writer

For many seniors, May 1 signifies a
launch into the professional world.
Here are a few gifts for graduates who
want to soften their landing into the turbu-
lent job market.
Newly graduated professionals should
ditch the backpack and ask for a briefcase.
For a modern twist, graduates can opt for
a sleek messenger bag and sophisticated
interview supplies.
"I find portfolios and nice pens to be
useful now more than ever,"graduating
UF senior and microbiology major Brian
Restauro said.
"Anything that will help me toward get-
ting an interview or during the interview
Process has definitely
been of use to me as a
graduating senior."
Graduates should also
0 update their professional
wardrobe.
For men, nothing says clean-cut
quite like a set of cuff links and a groom-
ing kit. For women, an American Express
or Macy's Gift card is their
ticket to a new, polished col-
lection of business clothes.
Interviewees can also makeover
their manners by reading Tiffany's
Table Manners.
This blue, pint-sized book includes tips


for how to approach lunchtime interviews
and formal business encounters.
Recent graduates should also stay
tuned to news updates
about the career fields
\ j \ \ they're hoping to en-
ter.
They can ask for
subscriptions to magazines or journals
relating to their career interests.
The Wall Street Journal and Forbes
Magazine provide business and finan-
cial insight, while Wired magazine and
MEMagazine offer technology updates
and mechanical engineering information.
The Journal of the American Medical
Association and the New England Medi-
cal Journal of Medicine might be help-
\\ ful for future medical students.
And before all of these job-
related staples dry up any
Semblance of youth you had
left in you, remember that
you might want to ask for
something fun.
If backpacking through Eu-
rope is not an option, travel
might still be a possibility -
even to Orlando. And let's
be honest: no matter how
many degrees you have un-
der your belt by now, you
probably still want to expe-
rience The Wizarding World of Harry Pot-
ter this year.


ALLIGATOR STAFF REPORT

Before UF students planning on
graduating in May send out those
fancy graduation announcements,
they should take a look at the uni-
versity's checklist to make sure they
actually get their diplomas:

Make sure you have met all
of your degree requirements
with your academic adviser.

If you haven't filled out a de-
gree application form, you're
late. But you can still get a
late application form on ISIS.

3 Verify your local and home ad-
dresses so you're sure to get
your diploma. Your diploma
will be mailed to your home mailing
address about 10 weeks after gradu-
ation.

4 Clear your academic record.
Incomplete grades must be
converted to satisfactory let-
ter grades before you can gradu-
ate.

The end of the school year is upon us the time for all the soon-to-be graduates to make the most of their last few weeks in Gainesville.
To help, here is a list of the top 10 things to do before leaving town.


0 Lake Wauburg
Lake Wauburg offers UF stu-
dents fun for free. Just bring
your Gator 1 Card to Wauburg, and you and
your friends can go fishing, canoeing, kayak-
ing, sailing and swimming. It's the ultimate
Gainesville outdoor experience. Head down
Southwest 13th Street toward Micanopy and
you'll see the sign for the lake.
9 Become a Globetrotter
Salty Dog Saloon on West Univer-
sity Avenue offers one of the best bar
experiences in Gainesville, and becoming a
Globetrotter is something you shouldn't miss.
To become a Globetrotter you have to drink
one beer from each country listed on the beer
menu in 60 days a total of 30 beers. Not
only do you get a free T-shirt, but you also get
to drink some good beer in a fun atmosphere.


hundreds of students each day.
7 Gator Stompin'
This graduation tradition is a must-
do for graduating seniors. For $25 you
spend the night of April 30 cruising restaurants
and barhopping to 32 different locations, in-
cluding Gator City, Fat Tuesday, Dragonfly
and Mellow Mushroom. At each bar you
get one alcoholic or nonalcoholic drink, and
at each restaurant you get a food item. And
there's a free T-shirt.
6 Running of the Bulls
Each Fall, the women of the Panhel-
lenic Council hand out bids for their so-
rorities to excited hopefuls on Norman Field.
And each year, hundreds of people show up
to watch. Why the big turnout? It's pure enter-
tainment. Nowhere else in Gainesville will you


year.

5 Eat at The Swamp
If you didn't dine at The Swamp
with your parents during your fresh-
man year, it's something you should probably
make happen before you leave town. It's not
so much about the food as it is about the envi-
ronment. So stop by with mom and dad, enjoy
a pitcher of beer and some food, and enjoy
one of Gainesville's most cliched dining expe-
riences.
Orange & Brew
The Orange & Brew may not be the
No. 1 hot spot for drinking, but how can
you pass it up? Other than sneaking a flask
into a football game, this is really your only
chance to drink on campus. And drinking here
won't get you into trouble. With a wide range


should try to celebrate something (a birthday,
good exam grade, graduation, etc.) in the
enormous library where no one pays attention
to the fact that, yes, this is a library. You aren't
supposed to answer your phone and talk with
"outside" voices. People have already been
seen celebrating birthdays there with friends
and cupcakes, so you won't be the first obnox-
ious person to do it.
2 Ginnie Springs
Only 13 miles north of Gainesville,
Ginnie Springs is one of the best swim-
ming and diving spots around. There are seven
different springs in which to snorkel or dive. It's
also fairly cheap: $ 10 depending on what you
want to do. There's also a river to tube down
with your friends. This spot will make any hot
Gainesville day a lot nicer.

Where to take the family when they're in Gainesville


ALLIGATOR FILE REPORT

You're getting ready to grad-
uate. The family's coming. You
need to show them what you've
been up to for the past four (or
five or six) years. So here are
a few places to be sure to take
the whole crew or to check out
if you never got around to it:

UNION STREET FARMERS'
MARKET: The market has of-
fered an intimate, vibrant set-
ting and a chance to buy goods
from local farmers since 1996.
Every Wednesday afternoon,
you can browse the organic
produce, baked goods and
handmade pottery while listen-
ing to live acoustic music. Prod-
ucts include organic coffee,
nuts, vegetables, fruits, soaps
and jewelry.

HOMETOWN PIZZA
JOINTS: When it comes to
pizza in Gainesville, there are
some classics that every student
must sample before gradua-
tion. Leonardo's By The Slice
is near campus and is a great
option for lunch in the middle of
a day full of classes. Satchel's
Pizza is a bit farther, and you
might have to wait a little while
for a table. But once you bite
into that first slice, it will be well
worth the wait.

HARE KRISHNA LUNCH:
Even if vegetarianism isn't your
thing, you may be surprised to
find yourself going back for a
free second serving of eggplant,


rice and coconut cake. Dishes
vary daily but are always "kar-
ma-free." Pick up a $4 plate on
the Plaza of the Americas week-
day afternoons.

HIPPODROME THEATRE:
Founded in 1973, the Hippo-
drome Theatre has been offer-
ing Gainesville residents expo-
sure to artsy shows and films
for decades. For an out-of-the-
box entertainment experience,


check out a play on the upstairs
main stage or a foreign flick in
the intimate screening room.

STUBBIE'S SHIRT PUB: For
international flavor and great
service, head over to Stubbie's
Shirt Pub on University Avenue.
The pub features more than 150
types of beer from countries
such as Brazil, Canada, Israel,
Thailand and Namibia not to
mention dozens from across the


United States.

OCALA POKER AND JAI-
ALAI: Located about 30 miles
south of Gainesville in Orange
Lake, Ocala Poker and Jai-Alai
offers a plethora of entertain-
ment options in addition to the
popular South Florida sport,
from watching and wagering to
drinking and eating to catching
a sports game on one of more
than 50 high-definition screens.


Max Weissler / Alligator Staff
With beautiful weather for most of the year in Gainesville, students can spend time at Lake Wauburg
relaxing, climbing, sailing, kayaking or even barbequeing while enjoying the landscape.


The facility recently added pok-
er. Jai-alai is played this spring
from early April to April 30,
and there are two performanc-
es a matinee and an evening
performance every Tuesday
through Saturday.

GINNIE SPRINGS: At Gin-
nie Springs, located about 30
miles northwest of Gainesville
in High Springs, you can canoe,
tube, snorkel and scuba dive
in caves amid beautiful natural
surroundings. A campground is
also on site.

LAKE WAUBURG: At UF's
Lake Wauburg eight miles
south of campus on State Road
441 you can relax and en-
joy outdoor activities, including
boating, water skiing, volley-
ball, picnicking and climbing
a 55-foot wall. UF faculty and
staff have free access to the
lake, and four guests are al-
lowed per Gator 1 Card.

DEVIL'S MILLHOPPER GEO-
LOGICAL STATE PARK: At
Devil's Millhopper Geologi-
cal State Park, you can walk
around the edge and down to
the bottom of a 10,000-year-
old, 120-foot deep sinkhole.

GATORS BASEBALL AND
SOFTBALL: Though basketball
season is over and football sea-
son is months off, UF's baseball
and softball teams are still com-
peting, so you can still show off
your orange-and-blue pride to
your family and friends.

Door-to-door visits begin after this semester


CENSUS, from page 1

Households visited by census
workers cost the bureau $57, a
steep hike from the 42 cents the
bureau pays for homes that mail
their forms by today.
"We're trying to be as effi-
cient and cost effective as pos-
sible by urging students to get
those census forms in by April
12," Gainesville spokesman Bob
Woods said.
UF students are expected to
complete the form even if they
are still financially supported by
their parents.


Woods said UF students
should complete the Census
because many of them ride the
city's buses and go to local pub-
lic parks.
The city's parks and buses are
funded by federal dollars given
to Gainesville based on Census
data.
Local Results from the
News census also deter-
mine how voting
districts are drawn.
"[The Census] is important
for all residents in our commu-
nity and particularly students,
who become members of our


community for at least four
years and often longer than
that," Woods said.
Students who do not mail
their forms and are leaving
Gainesville this summer will not
be visited by Census workers be-
cause the semester ends before
they begin door-to-door visits.
Besides mailing their forms,
residents can drop their cen-
sus forms off at City Hall, the
Alachua County Administra-
tion Building, the Reitz Union,
Cabana Beach Apartments and
all of the public libraries in
Gainesville.

in a tight match against Georgia
on Sunday to give their coach
Andy Jackson his 100th win at
home during his UF tenure.
After the No. 6 Gators (16-3,
8-1 Southeastern Conference)
got down early, they needed Van
Overbeek and Benneteau to win
their singles matches to avoid
their second loss of the weekend.
Van Overbeek finished off
his opponent not long after Ben-
neteau won a momentum-build-


ing tiebreaker early in his match,
clinching UF's 5-2 win over No.
8 Georgia (17-5, 9-1 SEC) in
Gainesville.
"Antoine winning his first-set
tiebreaker was huge," Jackson
said. "That helped take the pres-
sure off Bob's shoulders. That's
team tennis."
The Gators dropped doubles
matches on courts Nos. 1 and 2,
both in 8-6 decisions, to trail 1-0
heading into singles play the
same way Friday's 4-3 loss to
Tennessee started.
In singles, victories by sopho-
more Nassim Slilam, No. 7 junior
Alexandre Lacroix and freshman
Sekou Bangoura Jr. put Florida


ahead 3-1.
Benneteau, Van Overbeek and
sophomore Joey Burkhardt were
the three Gators left trying to win
the fourth point and secure the
victory for UF.
After drop-
ping the first set
6-2, Van Over-
beek bounced
back to win the
second set 7-6
Van Overbeek after a tiebreak-
er.
By the time Van Overbeek's
match entered its third set, his
teammates gathered on the court
to cheer him on, with Slilam fre-
quently motioning to the crowd


to make noise for Van Overbeek.
When Van Overbeek won the
third set 6-4 and clinched the
victory, he was mobbed by his
teammates who were excited to
celebrate the win over UF's big-
gest rival.
"I looked around and saw Joey
was in a tough match and An-
toine's was close," Van Overbeek
said. "I knew I wanted to win it
for the team."
Benneteau went on to win his
match in three sets, making the fi-
nal score 5-2 in Florida's favor.
The No. 4 Gators women's
tennis team (20-2, 10-0 SEC) had
a much easier time against No. 14
Georgia (11-5, 8-2 SEC) in Ath-


ens.
The 6-1 win that clinched the
regular-season SEC crown for the
Gators started with a sweep of
doubles competition.
In singles, Florida won the
first five matches to go up 6-0.
Georgia won the last match on
court No. 5.
Highlights for UF included
an upset win at court No. 1. No.
14 freshman Lauren Embree de-
feated No. 10 Chelsey Gullickson
7-5, 6-4.
Florida's other freshman sen-
sation, No. 9 Allie Will, remains
undefeated this season with a
6-3, 6-3 win over No. 29 Nadja
Gilchrist.


UF splits road trip after double-overtime loss to Colgate


* THE GATORS TOPPED LE MOYNE
15-3 ON FRIDAY.

By TONI-ANN MILLER
Alligator Writer

Florida had its first taste of overtime
play Sunday, and it didn't go well.
A two-game road trip in New York
started with a 15-3 victory over Le Moyne
on Friday, but the Gators (9-5, 1-2 Ameri-
can Lacrosse Conference) couldn't hold on
in a double-overtime match against Col-
gate on Sunday. No. 20 UF lost 12-11 to the
Raiders (8-6, 3-1 Patriot League).
Midfielder Caroline Chesterman and


attacker Caroline Cochran led Florida with
three scores a piece while attacker Ashley
Bruns added two.
Midfielder Brittany Dashiell and at-
tacker Janine Hillier each dished out two
assists on the day.
UF looked like it would continue its
dominance from Friday when it got out
to a 7-2 lead with 6:19 left in the first half,
but five-straight scores by Colgate tied the
match at seven about eight minutes into
the second half.
At the end of regulation, the teams each
had 10 goals.
In the two halves, Florida took five
more shots than the Raiders and two more


draw controls. However, it had six fewer
ground balls and seven fewer saves.
In the overtime periods, UF continued
its less-than-stellar play, but draw controls
proved to be the downfall for the young
squad as it allowed Colgate to control all
five of the draws in extra
.,*T time.
--) "We struggled with fin-
Lacrosse fishing UF coach Amanda
O'Leary said. "Against Le
Moyne we went for 44, to-
day we had 35 shots on goal, and scored
11. We need to start finishing our shots,
because we are certainly getting opportu-
nities."


She added that on defense, her squad
did not slide to the double teams and did
not stop the one-on-one matchups as it al-
lowed Colgate's Courtney Miller to score
five goals, including the deciding score in
the second overtime.
After losing a commanding lead in reg-
ulation and the effort in overtime, O'Leary
question the Gators' desire.
"Did we want it more?" O'Leary said.
"Could we have won? We had opportu-
nities, and unfortunately we weren't suc-
cessful. It was a tough game overall. Of-
fensively and defensively, we just didn't
play as well as we needed to play to win
the game."

UF GYMNASTICS

Gators finish first,


advance to finals


By TOM GREEN
Alligator Writer

Florida didn't get off to the
start it wanted to in the NCAA
North Central Regional, much like
its rough start at the Southeastern
Conference Championships.
But just as they did at the SECs,
the No. 4 Gators (20-2, 5-1 SEC)
rallied and took home first place in
Salt Lake City with a season-high
team score of 197.675 to advance
to the NCAA Championships for
the 28th time in the event's 29-
year history.
After a slow start on floor,
where UF had to count a lower
score after freshmen Marissa King
and Randy Stageberg stumbled
out of bounds, the team registered
a season high on vault.
"We were in the corral after
floor, and I told them we're going
to throw away what happened
and be extremely aggressive and


finish strong," UF coach Rhonda
Faehn said. "I told them we're go-
ing to go out there and have the
vault of our lives."
"We were in the corral
after floor, and I told them
we're going to throw away

Rhonda Faehn
UF gymnastics coach

That's just what the team did
on the way to a 49.5 on vault,
anchored by a pair of 9.9s from
King and senior Maranda Smith,
as well as a 9.95 from freshman
Ashanee Dickerson, tying her best
vault routine of the season.
"The energy we carried from
floor to vault helped us through-

SThe Nuggets signed Coby Karl, son of their head coach who is away from the
team fighting throat and neck cancer. I have no Denver affiliation, but I'll root for
dad and son to reunite in the playoffs. ... Stephen Strasburg made his minor-
league debut Sunday, throwing five innings in Double-A. SI.com's headline led
with the fact he allowed an earned run. He's surely a bust now.


* Don't just skip from the front
page to sports, there's a recap of
how the UF lacrosse team and both
tennis teams fared over the week-
end. See page 16 for stories.


E The UF women's golf team finished third
in the SunTrust Gator Women's Invitational,
which the Gators hosted for their only home
tournament of the year. Freshman Mia Pic-
cio finished in a tie for third place.


Brantley following in

Leak's footsteps
Thanks to injuries and absences throughout the
spring, we still don't know what Florida's offense
will look like in the fall.
But there was a pretty solid hint standing on the field
in white boat shoes during the Orange and Blue Debut on
Saturday.


Former Florida and current Mon-
treal Alouettes quarterback Chris
Leak came back to Gainesville to
support and advise new starter John
Brantley, a move that makes perfect
sense as Brantley should be running
the same kind of scheme Leak did his


senior season.
McCallin' It "Coach (Urban) Meyer was telling
Like I See It me it is going to be very similar to
mmccall@alligatororg 2006," Leak said. "That's something
that obviously I have a lot of experi-
ence with. ... Any two cents I can put in to help the team
win a game, I'm willing to do it."
During his time as the starter, Brantley will always
have to deal with Tim Tebow's shadow, but trying to fol-

UF SOFTBALL

Home-run barrage gives Gators win, sweep at Arkansas


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer

In softball, a team that averages
two home runs per game is consid-
ered an elite power team.
So then what can be said about
a team that hits four in an inning?
"It really doesn't surprise me,"
UF coach Tim Walton said. "We've
really got some quality hitters, and
the third time through the lineup
seems to be the charm."
Sixth-inning home runs by Aja
Paculba, Michelle Moultrie, Brit-


tany Schutte, and Corrie Brooks
broke a 1-1 tie and propelled No.
4 Florida (30-4, 12-2 Southeastern
Conference) to a 6-1 win and a se-
ries sweep over Arkansas (24-16,
8-6 SEC) Sunday in Fayetteville.
With the victory Florida runs its
winning streak to nine games, and
extends its lead in the SEC East
standings to a game and two in the
loss column over both Tennessee
and Alabama.
For the second time in the series
the Gators were facing Arkansas
ace Hope McLemore, who breezed


through the first three innings of
Game 1 before the UF hitters ad-
justed and tagged her for five runs
on five hits in the
fourth.
Thus, it was
no surprise when
Florida struck
in the top of the
first, as Paculba
Walton reached on an
Walton
error and then
scored on a single by Schutte.
But McLemore settled down,
retiring the Gators in order in the


second, third, fourth and fifth in-
nings.
"She had a different gameplan
today," Walton said. "The ball was
breaking a little differently and
she was throwing a couple good
pitches and we just weren't able to
capitalize."
Arkansas tied the score in the
bottom of the fifth when Tori
Mort's popup got lost between
Brooks and shortstop Brittany
Walker, falling for a leadoff dou-
ble that set up Sandra Smith's RBI
single.


But UF followed with its four-
home-run inning, and the tie
quickly became a blowout.
"We had some really good at-
bats and were ready to go in the
sixth," Walton said.
"I don't think it was fatigue, but
(McLemore) definitely missed her
location on a couple of pitches."
Freshman Ensley Gammel came
in to shut the door, throwing 2.2
innings of one-hit softball in relief
of ace Stephanie Brombacher, who
gave up just one run over the first
4.1 innings.


Season-best beam performance pushes Florida into top position


GYM, from page 22

out the whole competition," Smith said.
Florida took that momentum from vault
into its bar routines, where Dickerson led
off with a season-best 9.9, en route to win-
ning the regional's all-around title with a
season-high 39.70.
Dickerson's 9.9 was accompanied by
the same score from both Smith and senior


Amanda Castillo.
Heading into the final rotation of the
night, No. 10 Utah was finished with its
competition and was the leader on the
scoreboard with a 196.900, while the Gators
needed at least a 48.825 on beam to surpass
the Utes.
They did just that, and then some, as the
team put together its best beam score of the
season.


All five of the scores Florida counted on
beam set or tied season bests for the gym-
nasts, including 9.9s
From King, senior Court-
ney Gladys and sopho-
Gymnastics more Elizabeth Mahlich.
Freshman Liz Green
scored a 9.925 and Dick-
erson earned a 9.95 to take home the meet's
beam title.


The 49.575 was enough to secure the win
and advance to the NCAA Championships
in Gainesville, where Utah will join the
Gators as the other team to advance from
the region.
"It again just shows the mental tough-
ness of this young team, that their focus
was just 100 percent on finishing strong,"
Faehn said. "They were competing to win,
not just make it."

MIKE, from page 22


low Leak's example is much more
realistic.
Brantley knows. That's why
he turned to Leak for tips.
The two talked on the phone
frequently during the spring,
with Leak giving help about foot-
work, decision-making and how
to handle pressure.
"He's always been a mentor
to me," Brantley said. "I watched
him play through his college
years when I was growing up,
and I'm just happy he's helping
me out now. I've been waiting for
it."
In 2006, Leak worked in an
offense that blended Meyer's
spread option and a more tradi-
tional scheme, and Brantley will
likely do the same this season.
And Leak had Tebow com-
ing in to run the ball, just as Trey
Burton and Jordan Reed are ex-
pected to in the fall.
That mix is just fine with
Brantley and Leak.
"We talk about that," Brantley
said. "Me and him aren't the best
runners. We both agree with that.
If we have to have someone else
come in and run the ball for us,
we don't mind at all."
The difference is, Brantley
probably won't have to worry
about hearing boos from the
crowd when he subs back in for
Burton or Reed.
Beyond schematic similari-
ties, Brantley can also learn from
Leak's poise and leadership.
Meyer has repeatedly said the
biggest task on Brantley's plate is
learning how to take charge, and
he's much more like Leak than
Tebow in this regard.
Odds are, you'll never hear
Brantley pull a huddle together
and yell, "Big nuts! Big nuts! Right
here! We will not be stopped, I
will not be stopped, right now!"
like Tebow did during a game in
high school.


And while the Brantley era
might mean a dropoff in stiff-
arms and fist-pumps, it should
also bring back tight spirals and
picture-perfect deep balls of
Leak's day.
Brantley made that clear on
his first snap, when he launched
a 47-yard pass down the side-
line to Deonte Thompson. Leak
opened his first spring game in


2004 in the same fashion, as his
first toss went for 73 yards to Dal-
las Baker.
It's unfair to expect Brantley
to be the next Tebow or Leak,
but if he can take the lessons he's
learned from both and apply
them in the next two seasons, it's
not a stretch to imagine his name
alongside theirs as championship
quarterbacks.

UF bats come to life in finale


Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff
UF second baseman Josh Adams hit a three-run homer in the Gators' seven-run
sixth inning that carried them to a 9-1 win Sunday over Tennessee in Knoxville.


* FLORIDA BEAT TENNESSEE 9-1 SUN-
DAY TO WIN SERIES.

By TYLER JETT
Alligator Writer
tjett@alligator org

The Gators' offense had not looked like it
belonged to a top-10 team all weekend.
In fact, No. 8 Florida (23-8, 8-4 Southeast-
ern Conference) had managed just eight runs
in 23 innings against Tennessee. Then UF
nearly matched that output in one frame, scor-
ing seven runs on as many hits in the sixth in-
ning Sunday.
The inning propelled the Gators to a 9-1
blowout win over the Volunteers (16-17, 3-9
SEC) to clinch the series in Knoxville, Tenn.
The team's offense received a boost from
unlikely sources Sunday. With two runners
on base, junior Josh Adams gave the Gators
a 3-0 lead with a home run to center field. Al-
though Adams is a two-time All-SEC second
baseman, he entered the contest hitting just
.245.
"Everybody goes through a tough stretch,
this just happened to be his time," UF coach
Kevin O'Sullivan said. "It's good to see him
break out of it today, though."
Eight of nine UF batters reached on a hit
Sunday, with third baseman Jerico Weitzel
and left fielder Jonathan Pigott leading the
team with three each. Weitzel was hitting
.200 and Pigott had only nine hits before the
game.
"On certain days, certain guys come
through at the plate," Adams said. "It was


good to see some other guys step up."
Following Adams' three-run blast, UF
scored on three-straight RBI hits by Matt den
Dekker, Austin Maddox and Preston Tucker,
who proceeded to score the team's last run of
the frame on a wild pitch.
The hitters gave Florida starter Hudson
Randall (3-3, 3.98 ERA) more run support than
he needed. The freshman allowed one run on
four hits in a career-high eight innings.
"Everybody goes through a tough
stretch, this just happened to be
(Adam's) time."
Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach

Randall relied heavily on his slider and
struck out six Tennessee batters. He did not
give up a hit until the sixth inning.
"Any time you can keep a team hitless for
five innings, that's pretty special," O'Sullivan
said. "He was on his game today."
The downward spin on Randall's pitches
fooled the Vols as they would hit the top of the
ball, and 18 of the 20 balls put in play by UT
against the freshman pitcher were grounders.
In his last two games, Randall has allowed
three earned runs in 13.2 innings, dropping
his ERA by more than a point. He is also av-
eraging almost two more strike outs per 9 in-
nings during that stretch.
"I have to say, this was my best start of the
year," Randall said. "I'm getting more and
more comfortable with every start."
A radio broadcast contributed to this report.
