SPECIAL REPORT


City sees increase in citizen-reported crime


By ASHLEY LARA MOSES
Alligator Contributing Writer

After the Gainesville Police De-
partment saw an increase in crime
from 2008 to 2009, the city has seen
another increase, and this time, it's
a good thing.
GPD Cpl. Tscharna Senn said
there has been an increase in the


number of crimes reported by citi-
zens, and this initiative has helped
curb the city's climbing crime rate
during the past three months.
While the University Police De-
partment had a decrease in crime
from 2008 to 2009, GPD had a 7.6
percent increase.
Senn said Chief Tony Jones put
more officers on the street to tackle


"We're dealing with crime
differently."

It's the one day throughout the year that
causes everyone to cringe unless you work
for the IRS.
Happy Tax Day, Gainesville.
For students who have worked at all in the
past year and had taxes withheld from their


paychecks, today is the last day to file taxes to
receive a refund.
There are several tax credits available for

them.

UF approves Haiti footage


The travel ban remains


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Staff Writer

The UF graduate students
who filmed post-earthquake
footage in Haiti will be able to
use their video for their mas-
ter's thesis documentary.
Jon Bougher and Roman
Safiullin reached an agreement
with the UF Board of Trustees
Wednesday allowing them
to use the footage despite the
fact that it was shot after the
university established a policy
banning UF-sponsored travel
to Haiti.
UF spokesman Steve Or-
lando said an investigation
showed that UF funds and re-
sources were not used in the
students' travel or work.
The students will include
a statement saying the video
was not funded, sanctioned


or approved by UF, Orlando
said.
Safiullin said it was a re-
lief to know the university
understands the importance
of the footage and the need
for its inclusion in the docu-
mentary, which describes the
philanthrop-
ic organiza-
tion Planting
Peace.
But the
travel ban
remains in
effect, and
Orlando Safiullin said
he will con-
tinue to speak out about the
ban and work with student or-
ganizations who are involved
in Haiti relief causes.
Bougher said he feels the
travel ban is overly restrictive
and denies graduate students


and faculty the opportunity of
doing work in Haiti.
The news that Bougher
and Safiullin would be able
to use their footage was ac-
companied by news that their
adviser, Churchill Roberts, the
co-director of the Documen-
tary Institute, is undergoing
an investigation by the Office
of Human Resource Services,
according to Bougher.
Roberts said he has been
questioned about whether he
encouraged or helped fund the
students' return trips to Haiti.
Roberts said he was un-
clear where the students got
the money for the trip, and the
decision to return was their
own.
"My job was to help them
produce the very best thesis
they could," Roberts said.
Orlando said he cannot
comment about an ongoing
Office of Human Resource Ser-
vices. investigation.

Author and columnist Dan
Savage is scheduled to speak
at the Reitz Union Grand Ball-
room tonight at 7 as part of Pride
Awareness Month.
Adrian Ogle, executive direc-
tor of the Pride Student Union,
said the organization wanted to
bring Savage to campus because
his work is relevant to the theme
of this year's Pride Awareness
Month, which is "love law-
lessly." The theme is a tribute
to friends, family and everyone
who has shown members of the
lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgen-
dered and questioning commu-
nity unconditional love and sup-
port, he said.
Accent is sponsoring the
event, and Savage will be paid
$10,000 for the appearance, Ogle
said.
After the show there will be a
Q-and-A session, which will be
moderated.
Ricky Carter, co-director of
marketing for Pride Awareness
Month, said that Savage is a
good role model for the LGBTQ
community.
Savage is the author of "Sav-
age Love," an internationally
syndicated column that address-
es sex and relationships.
DANIELLA DORCELUS

Woman walks across Fla.
to raise awareness on
sexual abuse
Lauren Book-Lim is cultivat-
ing two things: sexual abuse
awareness and a bad case of shin
splints.
In recognition of Sexual As-
sault Awareness Month, the
25-year-old's 500-mile walk
across Florida will lead her
through UF Friday morning,
where she will talk about the
sexual abuse she endured as a


teenager and encourage those who
have been abused to seek help.
"It's time to shed the shame,"
she said in a phone interview
Wednesday. "It's always OK to tell
someone about [abuse.]"
Her trek, called, "Walk in My
Shoes," began April 2 in her home
town of Aventura, near Fort Lau-
derdale, and is scheduled to end
at the Florida state capitol build-
ing in Tallahassee, where she will
lobby for the passage of legislation
intended to protect children from
sexual abuse.
At 9 a.m. on Friday, students
will be encouraged to walk with
Book-Lim from the Reitz Union to
the Plaza of the Americas, where
she will speak, said Sarah Kunkler,
a UF sophomore and spokeswom-
an for the event.
Book-Lim, who is averaging
about 28 miles each day, said it has
been exciting to see people across
the state tell how they escaped
abuse.

City to review votes today


By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Staff Writer


Originally slated to be Gainesville's op-
portunity for a political intermission, the
next few days will instead play a pivotal
role in deciding who will be Gainesville's
next mayor.
Today at 5 p.m., the City of Gainesville
Canvassing Board will reconvene in order
to review provisional ballots cast in Tues-
day's mayoral election between City Com-
missioner Craig Lowe and Don Marsh. As
of Tuesday night, Lowe holds a 35-vote
lead over Marsh.
At stake are 21 provisional ballots,
which are ballots cast by people whose eli-
gibility to vote are uncertain.
The Canvassing Board will review the
ballots to make sure that they can be used
in the election data, said Alachua County
Supervisor of Elections Pam Carpenter.
Even if all 21 provisional votes are vali-
dated and given to Lowe, it would only
give him 50.2 percent of the vote, which,


compared to Marsh's 49.8 percent, is less
than the half-percentage-point margin re-
quired by law to bypass a recount.
Without a clear majority, a mandatory
recount would need to take place, which
would likely occur Friday when the Can-
vassing Board meets at the Supervisor of
Elections Operations Center.
A manual recount will be conducted if
the margin between the two candidates is
a fourth of a percentage point
Local or less, while a machine re-
News count will be conducted if
it is between a fourth of a
percentage point and half of a percentage
point.
According to Eric Conrad, Lowe's cam-
paign spokesman, Lowe will be in atten-
dance for Thursday's canvassing meeting.
It could not be determined whether Marsh
would be present at the meeting as well.
Should there be any irregularities with
the recount process, Conrad said the cam-
paign would not hesitate to pursue legal
action but feels confident that the current
outcome will stand.

Comic performs for 100


BY LYN KRAMER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Bryan Callen had a tip for those in
the audience at the Orange & Brew
Wednesday night looking to get
lucky.
"What will get you laid the fastest
besides a cape?" he asked the crowd
of about 100. "A cape with a falcon on
your forearm."
Callen, a comedian and TV person-
ality, cracked jokes about everything
from groin-stretching to the basics of
wizardry.
The stand-up comedy show was
hosted by the Reitz Union Board En-
tertainment, a student-run organiza-
tion that puts on a wide range of free
events for UF students.
"At the Orange & Brew, there are
no rules." Callen said. "What a combo,
citrus and beer."
Hyped with nonstop movement
and never-ending energy, Callen went
from reciting lines from "The Princess
Bride" to neighing like a horse and
running like an ostrich around the
spot-lit stage.


Callen is the host of E!'s "Bank of
Hollywood," and he has a recurring
role on "The Secret Life of the Ameri-
can Teenager." His notable roles in-
clude Eddie in "The Hangover" and
Howie in "Sex and the City."
"What will get you laid the
fastest besides a cape? A
cape with a falcon on your
forearm."
Bryan Callen
comedian

Callen also made TV appearances
in "Entourage," "7th Heaven" and
"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."
"I'm a big fan of 'The Hangover,'"
said Adam Jacobson, an economics se-
nior. "I've seen it like 10 times, and it's
hilarious."
Callen's character in "The Hang-
over," a Lebanese man named Eddie,
was based on a real guy, he said.
A sequel to "The Hangover" is in
development, Callen said.
Callen was paid $3,000 to by RUB
Entertainment.

Acupuncture recipients


limited by blood law


By MINCH MINCHIN
Alligator Writer

Plasma-donating acupuncture
patients are feeling the pinch.
When Morgan Guoan visited the
DCI Biologicals plasma-donation
center on Northwest Sixth Street in
Gainesville, she was asked to leave
because she had undergone acu-
puncture therapy in the previous 12
months.
"As soon as I said I had acupunc-
ture, they denied me and told me I
couldn't come back for a year," she
said.
Guoan, a second-year veterinary
student at UF, is not the only acu-
puncture patron who has recently
been denied the chance to donate
plasma, said Candice Nelms, an
acupuncture physician in Holly-
wood, Fla.
Nelms, a graduate of the Dragon
Rises College of Oriental Medicine in
Gainesville, recently received a form
from DCI Biologicals asking her to
confirm that she used clean needles
on one of her former patients who
wanted to donate plasma.
The form, called "Certification
of Sterile Technique During Body
Piercing, Tattoo or Acupuncture
Procedure," stated that federal law
prohibits anyone who gets acu-
puncture from giving plasma until
at least 12 months later unless he
or she can prove the needles were
sterile.
For Nelms, receiving such forms


is both unnecessary and insulting.
For the last 13 years, every acu-
puncture needle used in Florida has
been, by law, just as sterile as the
needles used to draw the blood of
people who donate plasma.
The Florida Regulation of Profes-
sions and Occupations statute 457
mandates all acupuncture needles
be sterile and disposable.
Despite the law, it is not uncom-
mon for acupuncture patrons to be
denied at plasma donating centers
in Gainesville, Nelms said.
"Some people have had horrible
experiences and have felt harassed,
and others have simply been denied
immediate service," she said.
The fact that acupuncture is asso-
ciated with tattooing
Local and piercings is also
News upsetting because nei-
ther tattoos nor pierc-
ings are medicinal,
Nelms said.
Nelms, who is licensed to prac-
tice acupuncture anywhere in the
U.S., wrote a letter to the DCI Bio-
logicals staff asking them to either
update their policies or "face poten-
tial complaints of discrimination."
LifeSouth Community Blood
Center has no qualms with acu-
puncture patients donating, and
there is no deferral period.
The American Red Cross Web
site also states that acupuncture
does not prevent a person from do-
nating plasma.
Representatives from DCI Bio-
logicals at the Gainesville office and
national office refused to comment.

Indian dance team wins title despite lack of funds


It practices on basketball courts


By CRISTINA RABAZA
Alligator Contributing Writer

The best Indian dance team in the U.S.
practices wherever it can find an open floor.
Without a reserved indoor studio or Stu-
dent Government funding, members of Ga-
toRaas have spent months perfecting their
high-energy choreography in residence hall
basements and on vacant basketball courts.
As they prepare for the Volunteers for
International Student Affairs (VISA) Talent
Show in the O'Connell Center tonight at 7,


the 16 dancers are no strangers to financial
obstacles.
"We try to move around to whatever is
available, but there's never much space left,"
GatoRaas manager Monica Patel said.
Holding 16-inch Dandiya sticks, the char-
acteristic props of Raas dancing style, the
dancers' bare feet slam the pavement non-
stop in sheer dedication for three to four
hours, three times a week.
Raas, which originated in India's western
state of Gujarat, has exploded onto the col-
legiate scene and represents a fusion of tradi-


tional and modem dance moves.
The GatoRaas team is a subdivision of the
Indian Student Association, which falls un-
der the umbrella of VISA. They will dance
a portion of the India Inc. routine during the
talent show, which will feature about five
other Indian dance teams.
"We receive some funds through VISA,
but by the time it gets down to
Student our club, there's barely anything
Life left," captain Sunny Patel said.
Members of the GatoRaas
team, led by Sunny Patel and Shivani Amin,
have paid out of their own pockets to make
the treks from Gainesville to Texas, Indiana
and Miami only to meet success.


They won first place in Dallas at the Raas
All Stars national competition on April 3, first
place at Miami Mayhem regionals in March,
and third place at Indiana's Raas Royalty re-
gionals in February.
GatoRaas is the first Indian dance team
to win first place at an intercollegiate dance
competition, but they can only compete a few
times a year.
The team only has two chances to get
judged because flying out to the competitions
is a big burden, said captain Sunny Patel.
"I hope we can become our own official
club under SG to get funded," Sunny Patel
said. "After all these wins, maybe they'll see
we are a worthy investment."

Editorial

So Taxing

This is a gentle reminder

to file your taxes

We don't like numbers at The Alligator. In fact, in one of
our classes one of us was asked to multiply 300 and
10.
The class had difficulty.
We groan in our liberal arts math classes, and we wonder
why anyone would ever want to study engineering, math,
physics or anything else that involves equations or other hard
things like subtracting.
So, the thought of 1040s, W-2s or 4s or 68s or whatever ac-
countants need to figure out just how much extra money the
government took from us during the previous year just hurts
our brains.
And today's the day, ladies and gents. If you haven't filled
your tax forms out, you're in more trouble than Carlos Dunlap
after a few keg stands.
OK, not really you can file an extension, but you'll still
have to file them sooner or later.
And just in time for the party, the Gainesville Tea Partiers
are having a Tax Day rally at the Bo Diddley Community Plaza
today to speak up for what's right free markets, fiscal respon-
sibility, limited government and fighting against the health care
bill that extends medical coverage to 32 million previously un-
insured Americans.
In other words, the really important things in life.
And the only reason we bring this group into this Tax Day
reminder is Gainesville voters almost elected a candidate that
Mohawk-Indian-sorry-the-real-Tea-Party-ended-236-years-ago
political group supports, Don Marsh.
Thirty-five votes, before official results of the recount are
released, are all that separated Gainesville from electing a Tea
Party-endorsed mayor.
So, celebrate Tax Day by thanking those 35 voters and by fill-
ing out your IRS-sanctioned forms if you haven't already.
Oh, and 10 multiplied by 300 is 3,000.


No JoKING Matter


Whether you love him
or he just creeps you
out, Burger King's
masked mascot, The King, is
in the news again.
The recent ad campaign
featuring The King is one
most of us have seen: He
runs through an office build-
ing pursued by men in white
coats before bringing a burger
to a woman as the men tackle
him.
"This king's insane," one
man tells her, and they seem
to know this because he is
giving out "so much beef for
$3.99."
The ad is cute. Maybe we
smiled or laughed. But The
King has apparently gone too
far, and Michael Fitzpatrick,
the executive director for the
National Alliance on Mental
Illness, is outraged.
He called the ad "blatantly
offensive" and said he was


"stunned and appalled" when
he saw it.
C'mon, now, Mr. Fitzpat-
rick. Should there really be a
scandal over this?
While The King's "illness"
is up for debate, we don't see
any reason to get into one.
The whole thing is merely
a joke, and one that every-
one, except Fitzpatrick, is in
on. Ask anyone to view the
ad, and it's obvious that The
King's not meant to truly
have any kind of real mental
ailment.
It's hard to view the com-
mercial and look at it from
a serious standpoint. While
Fitzpatrick seems to have suc-
ceeded somehow, we really
wouldn't recommend it.
If anyone is the butt of this
joke, it's not people with men-
tal illness but the silly doctors
who would try to keep us
away from cheap burgers.

Column

Media should focus more on war-crimes


Recently, a video was released by WikiLeaks from
an unknown source showing the killing of Iraqi
civilians by American troops from an Apache he-
licopter July 12, 2007.
Their excuse for firing the shots was they "mistook"
a journalist's camera for either an AK-47 or a rocket
launcher, and they "thought" they might be insurgents.
The horrendous 17-minute video shows real footage of the
heinous crime that makes anybody with a true moral con-
scious question whether these "soldiers" were in a sane
state of mind.
While watching the horrific video, I kept thinking these
troops were acting like they were playing a video game.
They were basically shooting at anything that moves.
According to more than one news source, the Apache
helicopter killed 12 Iraqis and was equipped with Hell-
fire missiles and .30-caliber machine guns. Even when
a minivan showed up to rescue the victims, shots were
fired at the driver from the Apache helicopter.
I was outraged by the video not necessarily
shocked because the U.S. Army has a history of slay-
ing innocents and has always labeled it as "collateral
damage." Since the war started in Iraq, civilians in-
cluding journalists, farmers, doctors and children, to
name a few have been ambushed and caught in the
line of fire by military forces.
Among the 12 Iraqis killed on that tragic day was
Namir Noor-Eldeen, a prominent photojournalist who
worked for Reuters.
Though he was only 22 when he was killed, friends
and coworkers describe him as a well-respected, brave
human being who left behind an incredible body of
work that documents the reality of war in Iraq. Another


Teba Mohammad victim was Saeed Chmagh, a
Speaking Out Reuters driver and assistant. He
was 40 years old and left behind
a wife and four children. Along
with the dozen deceased Iraqis, two children were
wounded.
I could not help but think about these two human
beings who had nothing to do with insurgency and did
not even have weapons.
They were normal, hardworking men with families,
values and passion for their profession. How come these
acts of murder are not covered by the U.S. media? Why
do so many Iraqi victims get killed this way and their
stories go untold?
Don't they deserve to be recognized and known for
who they were, rather than be lumped together and be-
come just a statistic?
Nobody can deny that these war crimes are serious
violations of the Geneva Convention, and I defy anyone
who says otherwise. These violators need to be put on
trial; justice must be served. They owe it to the families
of the deceased.
I am not surprised this did not get enough media
coverage. When it was shown on the news, the footage
was covered by a black box across the screen.
News reporters claimed it was out of respect for the
victims' families. I am sure their families want the world
to see this shameful atrocity that led to the loss of their
loved ones forever, but typical American media gives
precedence to celebrity news over exposed government
cover-ups and war crimes.
Teba Mohammad is a bilingual education graduate
student.


The views expressed here are not necessarily those of the Alligator.

Letters to the Editor
Evaluation editorial too whiney
Could the "Can you hear us now?" edi-
torial be any more whiney? The role of a
misunderstood, whine-aholic college stu-
dent who completely denies that anyone
older than 30 actually cares about what he
or she thinks is almost as annoying as it is
pathetic.
You don't know what an influence stu-
dent evaluations have because you're not
backstage in the offices and meeting rooms
where all the magic happens.
My mom is a dean at a university, so
I have been lucky enough to score a peek
into the world most students never know
about.
My mom has given countless presenta-
tions to teachers explaining the importance
of student evaluations and how they can
learn and improve from them. She has also
fired teachers with overwhelmingly nega-
tive and unimproving evaluations.
So don't ignorantly assume that your
voice isn't heard just because you're not
on the receiving end.

Columnist right about universities
I really enjoyed Nick Miner's guest col-
umn, "Students should question author-
ity." Everything he said was correct. The
universities, including UF, have degener-
ated into institutions that only care about
students regurgitating information.
This is because universities have sold
out to the corporations. They used to be
places where young people could explore
ideas and learn about the world, but now
it's just corporate boot camp.
The last thing the corporations want is
a free-thinking employee. This would un-
dermine their corruption.
Because they control the schools (look
at who's on the Board of Trustees), they've
shaped the structure of the university to
meet their needs.
But there is hope. Students have to resist
the problems they find in school, united to-
gether, because in unity there's always a
chance for change.
Miner also complained about Student
Government's soft resolution on the Kofi
Adu-Brempong shooting.

Westboro appearance will showcase
Gainesville's diversity
As my first year at UF is coming to a
close, I have seen how diverse a large uni-
versity can be. I think it is very impres-
sive how so many people come together to
what may seem like minor events, but are
for a very good cause.
Pride Awareness Month is a great ap-
proach to the cause as opposed to Gay
Pride Month as this month of April isn't
just for those who are already out with
their sexual orientation. The purpose is
to make people aware that this lifestyle is
something present in the community and
people should embrace it and be proud of
the community's diversity.
With such a large and infamous hate
group as the Westboro Baptist Church of
Topeka, Kansas coming to Gainesville this
Sunday I think it's great how people of the
university and Gainesville are coming to-
gether to support each other regardless of

Clinton holds conference call


By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Staff Writer

In an effort to promote his global humanitarian
causes, former President Bill Clinton held a phone
news conference with student reporters across the na-
tion Wednesday.
Speaking from the Clinton Global Initiative Uni-
versity Meeting in Miami, Clinton discussed topics
ranging from health care to education and current
events.
He also encouraged people to participate in public
service.
"The point is that everyone can make a difference,"
said Clinton, who called service an essential ingredi-
ent to being a good American citizen. "You don't need
a lot of money to do good."
According to Clinton, the Clinton Global Initiative
has assisted in improving the quality of life for 220
million people in more than 170 countries.
Calling his work as equally rewarding as his eight-
year tenure in the White House, he said his humani-
tarian efforts allow him the opportunity to go to re-
mote places and interact with more people than he
could while serving as president.
"I'm very happy to be doing this," he said.
When speaking on political issues, he praised Presi-
dent Obama's efforts to get health care reform passed,
something Clinton failed to do while in office.


He attributed the passage to a "better" Congress
and the dire urgency within the country to have ex-
panded health coverage.
"If you want to change things, you have to be will-
ing to pay the price of time," he said.
Clinton also spent time discussing education and
calling for efforts to curb rising higher education
costs.
He said the costs of education are rising faster than
the costs of inflation.
"The one thing that nobody disputes is that we
have the best education system in the world, he
said, calling it the crowning jewel of
American society.
However, he said the opportuni-
ty for education is being priced out
of students' hands.
Although he praised the efforts
of the Clinton Global Initiative, es-
pecially those in the earthquake-
Clinton ravaged nation of Haiti, Clinton
stressed the need to expand com-
mitment to public service.
In doing so, he does not want to lose what he called
a sense of personal intimacy with those whom the
program is helping.
He remains optimistic for the program's future.
"We'll find an answer to keep this thing going,"
he said.

Civil rights historian discusses MLK's impact today


* THE AWARD-WINNING
HISTORIAN AND AUTHOR
ALSO PLAYED GUITAR.

By JAMEL F. LANGLEY
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF students and residents
from around the Gainesville com-
munity took a look back at the
civil rights movement Wednes-
day night.
Mike Honey, award-winning
historian of the civil rights and
labor movements and president
of the Labor and Working Class
History Association, spoke to
an audience of 60 at the East-
side Recreation Center in east
Gainesville.
"History doesn't repeat it-
self. King dedicated his life
to push people to be able
to go as far as their poten-
tial can take them, so that
new history can be made."
Mike Honey
president of the Labor and Work-
ing Class History Association

The event, sponsored by the
Samuel Proctor Oral History
program, focused on the social
change enacted by Martin Luther


King Jr.
He discussed how this change
is relevant during the Obama ad-
ministration.
In Honey's book, "Where Do
We Go from Here: Chaos or Com-
munity?" he talks about King's


goal of unifying people by in-
creasing economic equality and
advocating in support of civil
rights.
"It's very important to under-
stand King in a way that most
people usually don't," Honey


said.
"King always had a broad
agenda for social change and
dedicated his life to it," he add-
ed.
Throughout the event, Honey
said achieving peace is just as

important an aspiration now as it
was during the civil rights move-
ment.
"If you can keep people di-
vided, you can keep them weak,"
he said.
During the event, the audience
joined Honey as he displayed his
musical talents by performing a
song entitled "Keep Your Eyes
on the Prize."
After his performance, he
discussed how the problems ad-
dressed by King are still evident
today.
Honey said the United States
leads the world in incarceration
rates.
He questioned why it isn't
leading in its ability to provide
jobs.
"History doesn't repeat itself,"
Honey said. "King dedicated his
life to push people to be able to
go as far as their potential can
take them, so that new history
can be made."
As a part of Honey's trip to
Gainesville, the historian said he
plans to speak with graduate stu-
dents Friday about their personal
theses.
Honey was not paid for his
Gainesville appearance, accord-
ing to Paul Ortiz, director of the
Samuel Proctor Oral History Pro-
gram.

GATOR GROWL

Gator Growl to recruit


By ASHLEY HEMMY
Alligator Contributing Writer
Gator Growl 2010 is all about
new beginnings.
For this year's theme, "Celebra-
tion of a Gator Nation," the Gator
Growl staff is trying to tap into UF's
diverse Student Body by holding
casting calls Friday and Saturday.
"This year we want to give
Gator Growl back to the students,"
said Gator Growl spokesman Bryan
Griffin.
Students who want to try out can
sign up in the Florida Blue Key of-
fice, Room 365 in the Reitz Union.
"We are celebrating a fresh start,"
Griffin said. "The new football team
is a reason for celebration."
Tryouts will take place Friday
from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday
from noon to 5 p.m. in Room B60
in the Reitz Union. Griffin said the
creative team is looking for talented
students to be involved in skits,
videos and other acts during the
event.


Hundreds usually try out, and
this year the staff is trying to include
as many as possible, he said.
"We are open to new ideas,"
Griffin said. "There are so many
different tastes and talents at UF."
Griffin said casting calls are open
to anyone interested.
"We want a wide spectrum of
students performing," he said.
Students are expected to begin
practicing for the event at the start
of the fall semester, Griffin said.
"We want a wide spectrum
of students performing."
Bryan Griffin
Gator Growl spokesman

He said the Gator Growl staff
hopes this year's event will involve
more students from all different or-
ganizations.
"We want this year to break
stereotypes," Griffin said. "We can
move into an entirely cooperative
show."

penses, with a credit maximum of $2,000.
If students haven't filed taxes yet, there
are still options.
Garry McGill, a professor at UF's Fisher
School of Accounting, said students can
file a simple extension form, which can be
downloaded from the IRS Web site, www.
irs.gov.
Some Gainesville residents who feel
they've been "Taxed Enough Already,"
will rally at the Bo Diddley Community
Plaza from 4 to 6 this afternoon.
Laurie Newsom, vice president of the
Gainesville Tea Party, said the rally aims
to show local politicians that there are con-
servative activists in Alachua County.
"Not only are [taxes] too high current-
ly," Newsom said, "but they're going to be
onerous with all the new federal legisla-
tion."
But a recent study by the Tax Policy
Center, a Washington research group,
found that because of tax credits, about 47
percent of the population would not have
to pay any federal income taxes for 2009.
Newsom said the study shows just how
unfair the tax burden is on the wealthy
and businesses.
"Small businessmen are being crushed
by taxes like the Florida Unemployment
Compensation Tax," she said. "People are
happy to pay for police protection, the
military, et cetera. They're not happy to
pay for unemployment benefits that last
for two years."

As the semester comes to a close, many stu-
dents try to go out with a bang, while others,
with a hit.
The unofficial day for marijuana lovers to
light up is April 20 (more commonly known as
4/20) and rolls around, just in time for the end
of classes this Tuesday.
But what does 4/20 even mean? The origin of
the beloved holiday is shrouded in obscurity.
According to the Huffington Post, the meaning
of the term can be traced back to 1971 when
a group of teenagers at San Rafael High
School in California would meet after school
at 4:20 p.m, the exact time detention was dis-
missed, venture into the Point Reyes Peninsula
and light up.
What occurs now is a nationwide celebration
of eating or inhaling marijuana. The canna-
bis culture phenomenon has now developed
a reputation creating a day filled with pipes,
bowls, bongs, brownies and any other creative
method of consuming the drug.
Boasting the largest cannabis celebration each
year is University of Colorado at Boulder cam-
pus. More than 10,000 stoners are known to
gather on school grounds for a smoke-out.
Slightly Stoopid plays at University of Texas in
Austin every year, and University of California
Santa Cruz is renowned for its yearly antics.
So, whether you've already started stocking
up on those munchies or devised a plan to light
up between classes, take this day to kick back,
relax and embrace the 4/20 fever.

Grads look back on sex, relationships and dating scene


By MICHAEL PERRONE
and AMELIA HARNISH
avenue writers

He says...
Recently, I was walking around
campus, reminiscing about all I've
experienced in five years at UF: the
classes, the shenanigans and every-
thing, includingall the drunken hook-
ups and romantic pursuits that have
brought me to now.
This got me thinking about how
I've changed and I thought, "If I
could cross paths with my freshman
self, what would I say?"
Well, if my freshman self and I
have one thing in common, it's that
sex is all we ever think about, so I
think I'd start there. How I approach
sex, dating and relationships has
changed so dramatically over the
years that I wish I'd known then what
I know now.
For one, I used to think that girls
were only attracted to looks, but I've
learned that appearances are noth-


ing without confidence and a sense
of humor. Ask any girl and she will
tell you that it doesn't really matter
what a guy looks like -- nothing is sex-
ier than a guy who's sure of himself
and can make her laugh.
The fear of rejection was once my
roadblock, but I've learned that feel-
ing never goes away. A man who hes-
itates, masturbates, so you've got to
ask yourself, "What do you have to
lose? No one can blame you for try-
ing, and with enough practice you'll
succeed more often than you fail.
I used to refuse to play into a girl's
games. Things like fishing for compli-
ments or setting up little tests were
childish behaviors, I thought. But
everyone plays these games. The en-
tire process is a game, and the little
things girls do are all a part of the
hunt. Playing cat and mouse makes
the reward all the more satisfying.
When it comes to hooking up, I
used to think only guys were inter-
ested in casual sex while girls were
constantly reaching for committed


relationships. But libido doesn't dis-
criminate They want itjust as much
as we do, and they're just as capable
of separating sex and feelings.
Lastly, when I came to college I
thought that I had everything figured
out. Now I realize that in the art of
love, there are no masters, only stu-
dents. The most important thing I've
learned is that you should be true to
yourself and never compromise your
values.

She says...
When I first stepped onto this
campus four years ago, my dating IQ
was lower than anyone could imag-
ine.
This is probably why a large part
of my dating history reads less like a
Nicholas Sparks novel and more like
a novel that begins at Gator City and
ends with an awkward morning and
a next-night text that reads, "Hey,
let's sex."
For a while, this life was kind of
fun, which is why if I had the chance


to speak to 18-year-old me now, I
would first tell her to enjoy it. I don't
regret any of the admittedly scandal-
ous things I did after sorority socials
or hours of tailgating, even now that
I realize how dumb it all was. I'm not
saying you should abandon all self-
respect, but don't take yourself so
seriously that you never get to enjoy
shacking with one person while tex-
ting another.
Butthis ride gets old after a while.
And when I got over the meaningless
make-outs, it would've been nice to
know the things I know now.
First, I thought that "real dates"
were just a thing of the past. But la-
dies, if a guy likes you and he's at all
worth your time, he will make the ef-
fort to hang out with you in a public
place at a normal hour.
I also used to think any contact
was good contact. If he was calling
me, drunk or otherwise, it meant he
actually liked me. But I've learned,
the hard way, that what our moth-
ers have been warning us all along


has always been true and will always
be true: He just wants to get in your
pants. If he only contacts you while
at the bar, he wants to nail you later
and think about you never.
Once I learned these things, I was
able to weed out a ton of losers. But
then I fell into the trap of worrying
non-stop about being too forward. I
labored over clever text messages
for hours, only to decide finally that
I saw him two days ago and it was
"too soon."
Don't get caught up in all the
stupid boundaries we make up in
our heads when we're interested in
someone-they're just a manifesta-
tion of our fear of rejection.
If he likes you, he'll call you. If he
likes you, he'll wantto hear from you.
If he likes you, he won't stop liking
you because you've made itclearyou
like him. If he likes you, he won't be
pissed that you don't want to sleep
with him right away.
And if he doesn't like you, then
forget him and move on.

Mixing liquor and beer makes explosion


By Richard O. Stehli
avenheo writer


When you finish your final tests and papers, it's
important to start your end-of-semester celebration
the right way. Start it off with bombs. Bombs are an
easy way to take simple ingredients, most of which
you already have, and transform them into an exciting,
entertaining drink.
To execute a bomb, all you need to do is fill a shot
glass and drop it into a beer. There's plenty of room for
creativity and invention, but here are a few classics to
get you started:

Irish Car Bomb
V2 shot Irish cream, V2 shot Irish whiskey, 12 oz
Guinness
This is a drink that demands chugging Float the
whiskey on top of the Irish Cream in a shot glass, and
prepare the beer in a pint glass. When you bomb the
shot into the beer, drink as quickly as possible; the
longer you wait, the more the Irish cream will curdle,
tasting worse and worse as the seconds tick by.


Beer Buster Bomb
1 shot vodka, 12 oz beer, 2-plus dashes Tabasco
sauce
Although many people drink the Beer Buster as a
cocktail, it is more effective when bombed. Pour the
beer, add the Tabasco sauce, then bomb your shot
and chug. The hot sauce, which is a freshman-year fa-
vorite among my friends, will burn your mouth, throat
and stomach as it goes down, releasing endorphins
and makingyou a real man.

Sake Bomb
1 shot warm sake or soju, 12 oz Japanese lager, 1
pair of chopsticks.
The sake bomb -pronounced sah-kay, not sah-key
- is good to set up for several friends at once. Pour
your beer, then set the chopsticks across the top of
the glass. Balance the sake shot on top of the chop-
sticks, then count to three in Japanese: Ichi, ni, san,
KAMPAI (Cheers)! When you yell "Kampai," pound
both fists on the table. The impact will knock the sake
off of the chopsticks and into the beer.


Fire Bomb
3/4% shot dark rum, V4 shot Bacardi 151, 12 oz am-
ber lager
Float the 151 on top of the rum in a shot glass,
light it on fire, and drop it in your beer. The caramel
notes in the amber lager will complement the dark
rum and burnt flavors nicely. Be careful when you play
with fire.
Belfast Car Bomb
V2 shot Kahlua, V4 shot Irish cream, V4 shot Irish
Whiskey, 12 oz Guinness.

Cherry Bomb
3/4% shot cherry vodka (or vodka with a splash of
grenadine), V4 shot Irish cream, 12 oz chocolate
stout.
Keep in mind, as every bomb you drink will be the
equivalent of two standard drinks, pacing yourself be-
comes very important. Also, with a shot glass float-
ing in the bottom of your drink, there is a possibility of
chipping a tooth. Play it safe better to let that last
ounce go than risk tooth-to-glass contact.


Music panel gives advice to ambitious artists


By JON SILMAN
avenue writer


1. When sending in your demo to
a record label, have your chorus hit in
the first 30 seconds of your song.
2. An eye-catching font will attract
attention. Details are important.
3. When e-mailing someone in the
industry, make sure you use the name
of the person you're trying to impress.
This, and other tasty gems of wis-
dom were freely passed out at the Mu-
sic & Entertainment Industry Student
Association's first annual music panel
April 7 in the Reitz Union.


The panel was attended by a who's
who of the Gainesville music scene
including Var Thelin, of No Idea Re-
cords; Casey Robbins, manager of
Cardboard Box records; and Eric and
Travis Atria, of Morningbell. Also in at-
tendance was Ben Westermann-Clark,
of Grooveshark.
Among the vast cornucopia of
knowledge was an important piece of
info that Thelin had to share about e-
mails and letters he gets from bands.
"I always reject bands who use the
phrase, 'Take it to the next level.' In
our old warehouse, we put up a note
every time someone used that phrase.


Our wall was covered."
Eric Atria, the bass player of Morn-
ingbell, had some tidbits of his own to
share.
"Nothing substi-
tutes for being nice
to people," he said.
Thelin's record
label, No Idea Re-
cords, has been in
Gainesville more
than 20 years since
its inception as a fanzine in 1985.
Thelin spoke about what makes an
artist viable.
"It's about the performer you're


watching being compelling enough
that you stop what you're doing and
watch them. It's not about being a
musical genius. Genius is a fleeting
thing. A lot of geniuses are coo-coo,"
he said.
Travis Atria, the lead singer of
Morningbell, recently self-released
a record with his band entitled, "Sin-
cerly, Severly," available for purchase
at the band's Web site. He said there
was a reason that the band wasn't
signed to a start-up label.
"Any label that could sign us
couldn't do anythingfor us we couldn't
do for ourselves," he said.

Perfect page turners for all

Nothing is sexier than intelligence. OK... and Chan-
ningTatum-but that's beside the point. So, why don't
you grab a book this summer while lathering up for
some serious sunbathing? No one is suggesting you
bust out that dreadful book you got two birthdays ago
from Grandma. Instead, catch up with these reads
to cool you off-and to distract you from that horren-
dously loud family on the towel to your left. The follow-
ing books are perfect for relaxing by the pool, flying
across the country or on a rainy Florida afternoon.

spots on The New York Times Best Sellers List. Her
large print retellings of the wacky stories in her life are
complete with pictures so you get the whole effect of
her debaucheries.
Excerpt from "Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang":
"Our house is technologically rigged with gadgets
and remotes and settings, all of which I have some-
where between slight and zero interest in. When
it comes to math or electronics, I am somewhat

"EAT, PRAY, LOVE"
By Elizabeth Gilbert
In August, this memoir-turned-movie starring Julia
Roberts and James Franco will hit theaters. Eliza-
beth Gilbert, journalist and recent divorcee, travels to
Rome, Bali and India, each accounting for either an
"eat" "pray" or "love." This self-told true story is full
of immediate charm as one woman sets out to find
herself.
Excerpt from "Eat Pray Love":
"I wish Giovanni would kiss me. Oh, but there are
so many reasons why this would be a terrible idea. To
begin with, Giovanni is 10 years younger than I am,
and, like most Italian guys in their 20s, he still lives
with his mother."

"I HOPETHEYSERVE BEER IN HELL'
By Tucker Max
Sorry ladies, but just because a guy goes to law
school doesn't mean he's Prince Charming Tucker
Max proves this in his autobiographical recounts of
his drunken, womanizing activities. With chapters in-
volving treating women like dirt and policemen like
idiots, this book is sure to offend anyone and every-
one at some point but that's what makes it all the
more interesting
Excerpt from "I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell":
"My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole. I
get excessively drunk at inappropriate times, disre-
gard social norms, indulge every whim, ignore the
consequences of my actions, mock idiots and posers,
sleep with more women than is safe or reasonable,
and just generally act like a ragingdickhead. But, I do
contribute to humanity in one very important way: I
share my adventures with the world."


Athletes play by own



rules in dating game


By MICHAEL PERRONE
avenue writer

When Ray Shipman came to UF
in the summer of 2008, he had ex-
pectations of becoming the big man
on campus. Shipman was Florida
Mr. Basketball and Gatorade Player
of the Year in 2008 and came to
UF surrounded by much hype. Like
many other college students, his
perception of what college life was
like came from sensationalized de-
pictions in movies and television.
"You watch movies, and girls are
throwing themselves at you. It's like
that, but not to that extent," the UF
sophomore shooting guard said.
Shipman recently declared his
intentions to transfer out of UF in
hopes of more playing time, but his
two years in Gainesville give an in-
teresting look into what dating is like
for an athlete at Florida.

"Usually I try not to get too
attached. you've got to let the
girl know that it's not serious,
that you don't want to be tied
down. They usually catch on."

RAY SHIPMAN
UF basketball player


In high school, Shipman never
had a girlfriend, but he was no
stranger to the company of the op-
posite sex. Coming to UF escalated
Shipman's womanizing to another
level.
"When I first got up here, I was
pretty bad," he said. "Every girl
wants to know who the new dude is
on campus. Girls see an athlete who
is tall and dresses nice, and they like
that type of stuff. Most of the time,
girls come to me."
Shipman meets girls mainly
through Facebook, where he says
they're often more open and com-
fortable, clocking in more than 60
female friend requests a day.
"If they fit the part, I would send
them a message and see where that
goes," he said.
And Facebook wasn't the only
way Shipman was meeting girls. He
was balancing texting anywhere be-
tween five to 10 girls at a time and
lining up potential hookups via his
teammates.
"A lot of the older players show
you around. If my teammate is with
a girl and it's not really serious, they
end up switching to me," he said.
"And now that I'm older, I introduce
them to the new players. Some team-
mates of mine, some other athletes,
they don't really care [that girls hook
up with other players]. That's not my
type. That's nasty. But some fresh-
man [players], they'll hop right on
it."
The promiscuity of those group-
ies is a reason why Shipman is a big
proponent of safe sex. He said not
wearing a condom is "just stupid"
with all the health risks that come
along with casual sex, which can be


just as common on the road.
"A girl will hit you up when they
see you're coming to town. They'll
try to come to your hotel room," he
said.
Nothing is out of bounds for
some girls who Shipman said are
only interested in one thing: sleep-
ing with an athlete.
"There are girls that go out there
for athletes. They do that intention-
ally," he said. "Maybe it's the crowd
or the games."
But the ladies who often hook up
with Shipman's teammates run the
risk of becoming well-known inside
those players' social circles.
"Girls get reps," he said. "Some-
times I feel sorry for girls because
they don't know it."
And as an athlete gets more reps
on the field of play, they deservedly
get more attention as their skills el-
evate to higher levels. Shipman says
that he can see the same correla-
tion in his dating life.
"The Caucasian girls tend to no-
tice the basketball players more,"
he said. "The African-American
girls don't really know if you score
or not," Shipman said. "They go on
the basis of 'He's an athlete. He's
attractive.' But then the better you
get, they start noticing. It's a big dif-
ference."
However, not all girls let things
like points, rebounds or playingtime
stop them from their pursuits.
"Some girls don't even care
what you do, as along as you're an
athlete. They don't care how many
points you score," he said.
Dating girls who are attracted
mainly to fame and status is not
without its repercussions. Shipman
explained that girls becoming at-
tached is a common problem.
"That's been a really hard thing
for me. You can tell when she is try-
ing to get to that next step," he said.
"Usually I try not to get too attached.
You've got to let the girl know that
it's not serious, that you don't want
to be tied down. They usually catch
on."
But not every girl takes rejec-
tion so easy. Shipman's car has
been vandalized four times since he
came to UF.
Whether it was the difficulty of re-
moving scratches on his car or just
the maturity that comes with age,
Shipman is no longer the philander-
er that he was during his freshman
year. Because of his escapades, he
started to earn a bad reputation. He
is now dating one girl exclusively,
and it is quite serious.
"I got attached to the girl I'm with
now. That caught me off guard," he
said.
Athletes like Shipman are often
lionized for their on-field accom-
plishments and charged with the
responsibility of being role models
for the community. But what's often
forgotten is that they're only kids.
They're teenagers just like the rest
of the Student Body.
They're playing the same game
off the field as their fellow students
-just with different rules.

Brunchers get two-in-one meal at restaurant variety

marker of the upper class. Only wealthy people
could afford to spend hours meandering through
a multiple-course meal. These origins may
explain why Americans often go out to brunch
during Mother's Day festivities to pamper the
No.1 lady in their life.
Where to go and what to eat in Gainesville:
Luckily Gainesville hosts a wide variety of
restaurants that serve brunch for all sorts of
occasions. Some of the following restaurants
are local favorites while others are chains known
throughout the country but each has its own
dish for brunch goers to sample.

For travelers, where to shop for fashion around the world


By ASHLEY MCCREDIE
avenue writer

Museums and monuments are
kind of cool, but we fashionistas know
the real reason to travel is to shop. For
everyone studying abroad and travel-
ing over summer, the Avenue has re-
searched some of the top shopping
meccas in the world.
Buenos Aires Palermo Viejo
Known for it's trendy Europe-chic-
meets-Argentinean-funk fashions and


designers, Palermo Viejo is a must for
shoppers. There are boutiques, street
vendors, cafes, nightlife and a crafts
fair in the square. Handmade jewelry
and quality leather can found, at ex-
tremely affordable prices because of
the exchange rate.
Sydney Newton, King Street
This shopping district of Sydney has
vintage shops, music stores, antique
stores, bookstores, cafes, restaurants
and art galleries. It is known as a bohe-
mian melting pot of cultures.


Tokyo -Shibuya District
Sometimes deemed the "Times

kyo," Shibuya is
crowded, covered
in neon lights and
is the next fashion
capital. Everything
from luxury brands
to Japanese street
trends can be found here. It's also a
center for nightclubs, cafes and ho-
tels.


Paris Le Marais
Le Marais is full of up-and-coming
designer's boutiques and vintage
stores. Shoppers are sure to find items
that no one else has. They also offer
art galleries, outlets for designers and
the bestfalafel in Paris.
London Portobello Road
Portobello Road street market calls
itself the largest antique market in
the world. Anyone can find something
here. There's a green and vegetable
market, vintage clothing, jewelry, vin-


tage sports equipment, cycle shops,
a magnifying glass specialist and so
much more.
NYC Fifth Ave
Fifth Avenue has every designer
store you could ever want plus bou-
tiques. Walk down Fifth Ave and you
can hop from Chanel to H&M to Bebe
and end up in the world renowned
shopping district of Soho. Walking
down Fifth is the best way to spend a
shopping day in NYC, and don't forget
to grab a street hotdog on your stroll.

Prevent all-nighters, unnecessary stress during finals


* PLANNING YOUR TASKS
IN ADVANCE WILL HELP YOU
STEER CLEAR OF UNWANTED
STRESS.
By LANCE FULLER
avenue writer

The end is near.
With the last full week of school
upon us, the end of the semester
marks a time when students wait un-
til the last minute and stay up all night
crammingforfinal exams and projects.
To help stay sane during exam week,
here are some tips from UF regis-
tered dietitian and nutritionist Janis
Mena and Tina Long, health promo-
tion specialist at UF's GatorWell.
People don't plan to fail; they fail to
plan.
The first piece of advice GatorWell
offers is don't put yourself in a posi-
tion to pull an all-nighter because you
may not be alert and focused by the
time of your exam. Unfortunately, if
you haven't managed your time well
or have spread yourself too thin, stay-
ing up late and hunkering down on
your schoolwork may be your only op-

tion.
Before you hit the books, have a
plan. Use the last full week of school
to prioritize how and when you will fin-
ish everything you need to get done,
Long said.
Long recommends finishing the
most immediate and urgent assign-
ments first.
In addition to planning each
individual task, plan to have at
least a five-minute break every
hour. According to suitelOl.com,
breaks help clear and relax the
mind during long study sessions.
For future semesters, Longsaid that if
you are a full-time student, treat it as
a full-time job. Although you may not
have class 40 hours a week, sched-
ule your extracurricular meetings and
study time along with the amount of
class time you have so that it equals
to 40 hours a week, she said.
Although this strategy sounds re-
stricting at first, the more organized
you are will give you more time for
other things, she said.
"Most of us at some point in our
lives will have to transition into a
40-hour work week anway," Long
said. "By prioritizing and commit-


ting 40 hours a week to studying
and class, you will have more time
for leisurely pursuits on weekends."

Food and Drink
If you plan to study for extended
periods of time, especially late at
night, you'll need to give your body
the proper fuel.

1. You can drink caffeine, just
limit how much you take in.
Drinking a couple of pots of cof-
fee over several hours isn't the end of
the world, Mena said. But binging on
energy drinks like Red Bull, Monster
and Doubleshots
from Starbucks
S will make you
1 crash and keep
you awake long
after you've gone
to bed.
Caffeine-ha-
bituated individuals can experience
"caffeine withdrawal" 12-to-24 hours
after the last dose of caffeine. It re-
solves within 24-to-48 hours. The
most prominent symptom is a head-
ache. They can also feel anxiety, fa-
tigue, drowsiness and depression.


I help safe drivers save up to 15%.
Frugality is back. But it's not all bad. Some of us are actually
enjoying the hunt for new ways to save. Here's one: drive safely.
You can save up to 15%. And that's just for starters. Call me first
to get the discounts you deserve.

2. Eat more protein and less
carbs.
Simple carbohydrates, like choco-
late and sugar, give you a quick boost
in energy and will make you crash just
like caffeine.
Instead, eat more protein like a
meatysandwich, nutsor cheese as pro-
tein will be a more consistent source
of energy without the crash. Mena
suggests eating snacks every three
hours you are awake so that you stay
focused and don't under or overeat.

3. Drink plenty of water
Just like when you exercise, drink-
ing plenty of water will keep your
stamina up when you study.

4. Block it out
Now that you have your game plan
and have plenty of food and drink to
keep you going, it's time to eliminate
distractions. Logoutof Facebook, Twit-
ter, YouTube and turn off your phone
and find a quiet place to study.
If you are worrying about other
stressors like having your car towed


outside of Library West and cannot
concentrate on studying, take care
of those other things first, Long said.
SuitelOl.com recommends avoiding
studying in cozy places like your bed
or couch as you will be more likely to
fall asleep, and switch study spaces
every so often to stay awake and fo-
cused. Study groups can be helpful
as long as the group does not distract
you from concentrating and getting
your work done.
Also, classical music has
been long viewed as a study aid
in relaxing students and drown-
ing out other distracting noises.

5. It's not the end of the world
According to Long, keeping a posi-
tive attitude and putting things in per-
spective in the long run will help you
focus and not become too stressed
out during long study periods.
"At the end of the semester, we
may have to do things that we don't
love, but there's always a means to
an end. Treat each thing as a learning
experience. Also, ask yourself, 'What's
the worstthat can happen?'" she said.
Even if a class is failed, it can always
open the door to new opportunities.

UF's offense sparks doubleheader sweep of FSU


* THE GATORS SCORED 17
RUNS IN TWO GAMES.

By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer

Although Florida's bats have
been the team's strong suit all sea-
son, hitting alone usually isn't
enough to get the job done against
ranked teams.
But it was all the Gators needed
Wednesday night.
On a day when the pitchers were
average and the fielders struggled,
the offense carried No. 3 UF (32-4,
12-2 Southeastern Conference) to a
doubleheader sweep of No. 19 FSU
(36-10, 8-4 Atlantic Coast Confer-
ence) on Wednesday in Tallahas-
see.
"We swung the bat arguably as
well as we swung all year long,"
UF coach Tim Walton said. "This
offense puts a lot of fear in people,
and we score a ton of runs and re-
ally swing the bat with authority."
Despite facing off against a pair
of pitchers with ERAs less than 1.50,
the Gators' bats pounded out 17
runs against the Seminoles.
Every player in the starting line-
up had a hit in the doubleheader,
with six different Gators contribut-
ing multiple RBIs.
"We don't depend on one single
person," said Kelsey Bruder, who
had two RBIs. "We have such a
strong lineup that at any point any-
one can contribute."
UF wasted little time getting the
offensive onslaught started, scor-


ing four runs in the second inning
of Game 1 on RBI hits by Ensley
Gammel, Brittany Walker and Aja
Paculba, who ran her hitting streak


to a career-best 16 games. First base-
man Megan Bush added a three-
run homer in the top of the third
to give the Gators a 7-0 lead, and


it looked like Game 1 could end by
run-rule. But the Seminoles battled
back, scoring three in the third and
one in the fifth to cut Florida's lead


UF catcher Brittany Schutte, who is second on the team in RBIs and home runs, added three RBIs and a
homer in the Gators' sweep of FSU on Wednesday.


to three.
The Gators tacked on an insur-
ance run in the sixth, and with two
on and one out in the bottom half
of the inning, Gammel came in to
relieve ace Stephanie Brombacher.
She retired five of the last six Semi-
noles to close out the game, secur-
ing UF's 8-4 win.
"I've seen some good things from
her," Walton said. "I've been very
pleased with the way that things
have been working, and hopefully
she'll continue to do good things."
In Game 2, the Florida bats
quickly picked up where they left
off, scoring in the top of the first on
a fielding error by FSU.
After the Seminoles tied the
game in the second, the Gators ex-
ploded for four runs on five hits in
the top of the third, scoring on an
RBI single by Francesca Enea, a sac-
rifice fly by Bruder and a two-run
home run by Brittany Schutte.
Although the Seminoles re-
sponded in Game 1 to make it inter-
esting, Gammel kept them at bay in
Game 2, allowing just a single addi-
tional run in the bottom of the fifth.
Florida put the game away short-
ly thereafter, scoring four in the top
of the sixth on RBI hits from Enea,
Bruder and Schutte, plus a sacrifice
fly from Paculba to stretch the lead
to 9-2, which would eventually be-
come the final.
The only downside to the after-
noon was Florida's fielding.
Five different Gators committed
errors Wednesday in the team's first
action since recording five errors in
a weekend series against Arkansas.

Smith excels despite pain


By TOM GREEN
Alligator Writer

For senior Maranda Smith, the pain
is always there. It's just a matter of how
much it hurts.
But she doesn't let that stop her.
When No. 4 Florida won its seventh
Southeastern Conference title March
27 its first since 2007 the pain was
almost too much for the three-time All-
American from Placerville, Calif.
"We had to shut her down for almost
the full week after that," UF coach Rhon-
da Faehn said. "Even then, the last couple
of days heading into regionals, she was in
so much pain she just couldn't really do
anything."
Smith's right shoulder began hurting


after her freshman year at UCLA, but she
thought nothing of it at the time because
she was focused on a stress fracture in
her right shin an injury that required
a rod to be inserted to repair.
During her first season at Florida
in 2008, she had the
shoulder looked at be-
cause it started to hurt
again. It turned out she
had a torn labrum, but
she decided to compete
through the injury.
Last offseason, she
Smith had surgery to repair
the labrum and started
rehabbing the next day.
After six weeks in a sling and months

Smith scored 9.9s in her

of rehabilitation, Smith was ready
to return to competition in time for
her senior season.
But the pain was still there.
"My shoulder still hurts when
I drive my car, turn the steering
wheel or open a door, and in gym-
nastics obviously," Smith said.
"It was kind of disappointing be-
cause I thought with the surgery,
it wouldn't hurt as much, but it
probably hurts more than it did last
year."
That didn't stop Smith all sea-
son, and she certainly wasn't go-
ing to let it slow her after the SEC
Championships.
With all of the injuries she has
fought through, Smith is accus-
tomed to not being able to practice
as much, but the restrictions she
faced following SECs were particu-
larly hard.
"It was just frustrating that I had
been doing so well all season, and
then when I'm supposed to feel my
best and it's the most important
time of the season I wasn't able to
train very much," Smith said.
Doubt started to set in for her
the Wednesday before the team left


at regionals
for Salt Lake City, when she was
unable to practice her bar routine
because of "excruciating pain" in
her shoulder.
"I just had to stress to her again
that she's been doing this for so
long and for so many months that
her body knows what to do and
that she has to allow that in her
mind," Faehn said.
After the practice day, Smith re-
laxed and blocked out the pain. She
felt confident again, the most confi-
dent she has felt all season.
Smith went
S out on the floor
in the Hunts-
man Center
GymnastiCS and turned in a
9.9 on all three
of her events
- floor, vault and bars. Afterward,
she said it was probably the best
performance of her college career.
Heading into the NCAA Cham-
pionships, and the final meet of
her career, Smith is ready to fight
through the pain one last time.
"My shoulder, it hurts a lot,
but I've fought this long through
the season, I'm definitely going to
make it through nationals," Smith
said. "I'll make it through, I'll be
fine."

UF senior Maranda Smith has not missed a meet this season despite struggling with injuries. Smith
helped the Gators win their regional qualify by scoring 9.9s on the three events she participated in.


KYLE, from page 25

and as much as I have enjoyed my time
here in Gainesville, I simply can't leave
that kind of money plus a brand new
voice recorder and laptop, and a lifetime
supply of legal pads and pens- on the
table.
Many of you will wonder how loads of
money and reaching the pinnacle of my
profession could possibly outweigh anoth-
er year of half-assing my classes in pursuit
of a degree that will always be there for me
to come back to if my career with Protath-
litis doesn't work out.
I sympathize with your frustration.
I only ask for the understanding that I
can't risk returning for my final year with
the chance of carpal tunnel claiming my


God-given ability and rendering me in-
capable of cashing a check this size ever
again.
I feel now is the perfect time to leave as
my statistics from this past season 150
bylines on published stories, two breaking
news stories, 400 interviews conducted -
may be hard to repeat next year.
Furthermore, my performance at the
writers' combine has raised my profile af-
ter I typed at a pace never before thought
possible for a human being 400-words-
per-minute.
Do newspaper scouts put too much im-
portance on a reporter's WPM score? Ab-
solutely.
The great ones aren't always the fastest
in the comfort of their own home, in front
of the TV and in a low-pressure event ad-
vance situation.


Some of the fastest WPM writers just
can't seem to keep up when deadline bar-
rels down and the stadium's wireless In-
ternet intermittently fails.
We in the business call the latter game
speed.
I'm told you can't teach speed lucky
for me and Protathlitis has a reputation
for being the Al Davis of Euro newspa-
pers.
I digress.
What I really want to say is thank you
for all the fan support over the years. I
couldn't have written countless features
and columns, and recorded the 100 pod-
casts without all of you.
OK, that's not true.
I will be just as successful with my pro
career in another city and continent as I
was here, but my agent told me to try to


lessen the blow of my leaving with trying
to make all of you feel like you can share
in my success.
When I committed to this sports section
three years ago, I never imagined leaving
before my eligibility ran out, but now that
my talents are highly sought after, I have
little-to-no regrets about breaking every
single one of the commitments I made so
long ago.
No matter what happens from here, I
will always be an Alligator.

Sincerely,
Kyle Maistri #5

Editor's note: Kyle Maistri won't "offi-
cially" hire an agent until his contract is
finalized, thus keeping open a possible
return next year.
