Recount declares Lowe city's next mayor


* LOWE WON BY A MARGIN
OF 42 VOTES.

By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Staff Writer

The wait is over.
After holding a mandatory re-
count required by law, the city of
Gainesville has officially tabbed
Craig Lowe to be the city's next


mayor.
Lowe, who has served on the
City Commission since 2003, de-
feated local businessman Don
Marsh in a machine recount Fri-
day by a margin of 42 votes, or
.34 percent.
The recounted results showed
no change from Thursday eve-
ning, when the canvassing board
met to decide on 21 provisional
ballots. The board awarded 12 of


the ballots to Lowe, five to Marsh
and disqualified
the remaining
four.
Since the
margin between
Lowe and Marsh
was less than
Lowe half of a percent
but more than a
quarter of a percent after Thurs-
day's meeting, the recount was


conducted on 10 machines, each
manned by one Republican and
one Democrat.
Lowe, who intently watched
the recount process from start
to finish, celebrated the victory
with his campaign staff while ac-
cepting congratulations from the
core supporters who stuck out
Friday's proceedings to the very
end.
"Now that the election is over,


we'll all need to go home and be
neighbors and work together to
make Gainesville a better com-
munity," Lowe said.
Marsh, who had support-
ers at Friday's meeting, was not
in attendance and could not be
reached for comment.
Lowe, who will replace the
current mayor, Pegeen Hanra-
han, will officially be sworn in on
May 20.


AROUND GAINESVILLE

Protesters hold rally, counter-rally
fByCJPRUNER
L" and MINCH MINCHIN
Alligator Writers

P The distance that separated the pro-
testers spanned three lanes of traffic
on University Avenue.
4 But for Shirley Phelps-Roper, it was
the distance between heaven and hell.
Phelps-Roper, the daughter of the
Westboro Baptist Church pastor, was
one of about 10 members from the
church who came to Gainesville to
spread one message: God hates.
Insults flew like speeding cars, signs
projected messages of humor and hate,
and costumed protesters danced to an
eclectic mix blaring from boom boxes.
At the four-stop protest Sunday,
hundreds of counter-protesters out-
numbered the members from the Kan-
sas church, which has gained national
notoriety for its Web site, godhatesf-
ags.com.
Lou Bouton, a 51-year-old former
drag queen from Gainesville, was
among the counter-protesters who
demonstrated against the church.
_"I have nothing better to do, so I
*like to come out here and be an annoy-
ance," he said.
But for some Gainesville residents,
the real annoyance was the radi-
cal church, which has made national
headlines for its controversial stances
on homosexuality, Jews, Catholics,
Muslims and African-Americans,
among others.
Steven H. Keys/ Alligator Staff Westboro Baptist Church began its
Michael, a UF student and member of the Jewish community, talks to a Gainesville tour at the Trinity United
Westboro Baptist Church protester outside the UF Hillel Sunday. SEE PROTEST, PAGE 8

tucky on Sunday.

FDLE concludes


investigation of


March shooting

By KATHERINE BEIN
Alligator Writer

The Florida Department of Law Enforce-
ment concluded its investigation Thursday
into the recent shooting of an international
graduate student by University Police Depart-
ment officers.
A copy of the report has been given to UPD
and the State Attorney's Office for consider-
ation by those agencies, but its contents remain
off-limits to the public, said State Attorney Bill
Cervone.
Although Cervone could not share the de-
tails of the report, the information within will
help him determine whether to press charges
against student Kofi Adu-Brem-
Special pong and whether police used un-
Report necessary force.
Adu-Brempong faces charges
for aggravated assault and resisting arrest
with violence.
Adu-Brempong was shot by police in his
on-campus apartment on March 2 after he al-
legedly resisted arrest with violence.
Some students have expressed concern
about the validity of the officers' actions that
night, demonstrating on campus and demand-
ing that all charges against Adu-Brempong be
dropped.

5th Avenue Arts Festival


draws about 25,000


Brittany Davis/ Alligator
The Afrikan dance ministry moves to the beat of African drums Saturday afternoon at the 5th
Avenue Arts Festival.


By BRITTANY DAVIS
Alligator Writer

Two-year-old Ahtani Stevenson held a
hollowed-out pineapple filled to the brim
with strawberry smoothie, fruit slices and
whipped cream.
Ignoring the straw and plunging her
mouth into the sugary plume of toppings,
it was apparent she needed to sit down.
There was much to observe from her
curbside seat Saturday at the 31st annual
5th Avenue Arts Festival.
Festival director NKwanda Jah said an
estimated 25,000 people usually attend
the event, including her children and
grandchildren.
"These kids who grow up and go to
college or have kids, they come back to go
to the festival," she said. "Sometimes it's
the only time I ever see them."
More than 100 vendors manned
booths displaying colorful foods, clothes,
African art and jewelry.


The festival also hosted gospel choirs,
local dance groups and an Afrikan dance
ministry from Atlanta.
"There's so much chaos in the
world now. We're trying to put
some sense of order into our
worship life."
Afriyie Huie
dance ministry member

"We're very intentional about observ-
ing certain African rhythms," said Afriyie
Huie, a dance ministry member. "There's
so much chaos in the world now. We're
trying to put some sense of order into our
worship life."
Carrying a swooping orange umbrel-
la, Bonnie Burgess, outgoing mayor of the
City of Alachua, said it warms her heart
to see so many families.
"Just to see the people and the children
come out is a pure joy," she said.


Students meet with Machen again to discuss demands


* THE GROUP JUSTICE FOR KOFI PLANS TO RALLY
TUESDAY AT 3:30 P.M.
By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer

Student activists met with UF President Bernie Machen
again on Friday to discuss their demands for justice after the
Corry Village shooting of Kofi Adu-Brempong.
The group of students reiterated their six demands to Ma-


chen, said Dave Schneider, an organizer of Justice for Kofi
Adu-Brempong.
The meeting showed the students they need to keep pres-
suring the administration, Schneider said. He
Local said they also need to turn their efforts toward
News initiating a grand jury investigation into the
shooting and persuading the state attorney to
drop the charges against Adu-Brempong.
UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said the university is still
awaiting the results of the FDLE investigation. Those results


have been sent to the State Attorney's office and administrators
are still awaiting his decision on the matter.
Sikes said that, after the meeting, she thinks students un-
derstand the administration is still unable to do more than talk
about their demands and at this point in time.
"We're still in a kind of sit-tight mode," Sikes said.
The coalition is planning a rally Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. Sch-
neider said Justice for Kofi Adu-Brempong will continue to call
for justice during the summer and after the results of the Feder-
al Department of Law Enforcement investigation are released.

Walker fights sexual abuse


By ALLYSON FOX
Alligator Contributing Writer
Lauren Book-Lim is on a journey to fight
against sexual assault one step at a time.
Book-Lim, 25, is walking from the South
Florida city of Aventura to Tallahassee in or-
der to educate people about sexual abuse and
to lobby for legislative changes during Sexual
Abuse Awareness Month.
Friday she made a stop in Gainesville, and
about 30 people showed their support for her
cause by joining her on a trek from the Reitz
Union Colonnade to the Plaza of the Americas.
Book-Lim was sexually abused for six years,
from age 10 to 16. Her "Walk in My Shoes"
walk started April 2 in the home where she was
abused and will end in Tallahassee Tuesday,
where she will lead a rally urging the state to
continue funding crisis centers in Florida. Each
day she walks between 25 and 30 miles, stop-
ping to speak about sexual assault awareness.


On the Plaza of the Americas, Book-Lim
thanked the crowd for joining her.
Shari Robenson, the assistant director of the
Counseling and Wellness Center, also spoke
and educated spectators about the free coun-
seling services available on campus.
"It's important you have a place where you
feel safe," Robenson said.
At about 10:15 a.m., after
Book-Lim had spoken on
the Plaza of the Americas,
her cell phone rang. The bill
she sponsored, which allows
people who are registering
for driver's licenses and li-
Book-Lim cense renewals to donate $1
to her cause, passed in the
Senate with a 38-0 vote.
The walk hasn't been easy.
"It's been challenging," she said. "But the
bruises, blisters and shin splints will all go
away."


Improv groups perform


By KATHERINE BEIN
Alligator Writer

They got the crowd laughing by
taking on roles as pirates, creepy cos-
tume shop owners and drunk col-
lege students Saturday, but the actors
from the Upright Citizens Brigade and
Theatre Strike Force take improve seri-
ously.
The Upright Citizens Brigade, a
touring troupe that launched stars like
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, joined UF's
improvisational group Theatre Strike
Force for a show that drew a crowd of
about 150 students to the Reitz Union
Cinema Saturday.
The show was part of a two-day


event featuring an improve workshop
and a second improve show Sunday
by Chicago improve experts Bill Arnett
and Danny Mora.
At an improve show, anything can
happen because the comedians are
making up their acts as they go.
It cost $4,000 to bring the Upright
Citizens Brigade to
On Gainesville, said former
Campus TSF president Ricky
Klopfenstein.
"Each performance is completely
different ... and in the moment," said
Sharkpunch! member Johnny O'Mara.

Editorial

Tearful apology

Pope's apology is too

little, too late

Whoever said boys don't cry obviously didn't talk to
old Benny.
Meeting with a group of sexual abuse victims
Sunday, a teary-eyed Pope Benedict XVI told eight previously
fondled and molested victims the church would seek justice
and implement more effective measures to protect cute little
boys from pedophile priests in the future.
Is it just us, or have "pedophile" and "priest" become nearly
synonymous? Didn't think we would say it? Well, we did.
We also think it's a little late to be praying with these abuse
victims while you offer your sincerest condolences, Benny.
Perhaps you should have prayed for these boys when you
were actively covering up the now almost ritualistic series of
sexual abuse scandals during your time as Prefect for the Doc-
trine of the Faith.
And we think it's a little late for those tears, too. We can even
imagine Jesus telling you to cut it out and be a man.
Although we were not privileged enough to meet secretly
with you or rather unprivileged enough to first be sexually
assaulted by one of your priests and then meet secretly with you
30 years later we can say actions speak louder than words.
And no amount of sad, puppy-dog eyes glistening with
big, Catholic, need-the-Shroud-of-Turin-to-mop-up, Mary-
Magdalene-is-even-calling-you-a-pansy, Vatican-sized tears
will reverse the pain and shame these men feel. We appreciate
you finally acknowledging your institution's wrongdoing. And
we use "doing" liberally here, but it's all much too late.
So, Benny, if you're listening, suck it up, blow your nose,
make some substantial changes in the regulatory proceedings
for priesthood and, for God's sake, punish these pedophiles
who are forever tarnishing your religion. Because the man up-
stairs is getting cranky.


Roethlis-blunder


In today's world of sports,
one frisky hand seems to
wash the other.
Just when you thought
you had heard enough about
Eldrick teeing off on anything
without a Y chromosome that
breathes, the American pub-
lic cannot help but feast on a
steady diet of Roethlisberger.
While the Milledgeville,
Ga., police investigation may
not have found it necessary
to charge the gunslinging Jeff
Daniels doppelganger with
any crime, we cannot help but
scratch our heads as to how
Big Ben was able to get him-
self into such a big mess.
For Roethlisberger, a han-
doff to Willie used to be the
patented third-and-one play-
call. Now, it means some-
thing completely different
when you have a roided-up
bouncer plopping a barely co-
herent woman on a barstool
for Ben to "expose the cover-
age." That is if you believe the


witness testimony from the
police reports.
We want to give Ben the
benefit of the doubt. We really
do. However, when you have
as many Super Bowl rings as
rape accusations and the po-
lice officer who took the initial
report of the incident resigns
under the weight of some
questionable photos, you may
as well be sprinting the green
mile of public opinion.
In an era when the NFL
is constantly apologizing for
highlights such as Plaxico
Burress pulling a Cheddar
Bob, Michael Vick hosting
doggy Thunderdomes, Pac-
man Jones just being Pacman
and the whole Cincinnati Ben-
gals organization this is not
what it needs from one of its
"good guys."
So we're pleading with
you Ben: take whatever pun-
ishment NFL commissioner
Roger Goodell hands you and
actually learn from it.

Column

Columnist offers final observations


h, my last column of the semester and my last
semester at that. I suppose this is where I get all
sentimental in my undergraduate reflection, per-
haps mustering enough good will to radiate advice out to
some of the younger Gators among us. How quaint that
would be, but any knowledge I'd be kicking wouldn't ex-

willing to allow myself to be. Answer: very.
It's challenging to fully comprehend the stretch of time and
experience I've traversed while in Gainesville. In the begin-
ning, my ever-grinning demeanor would have been masked,
clouded to be precise, a la Pig-Pen, except instead of being
surrounded by a swarm of dirt and dust, I was constantly en-
veloped in a shroud of post-combustion particulature of pre-
viously primo dankness. Suffice to say, I capped emissions
essentially to zero, enough to emerge as the mild-mannered,
though often ridiculous, even slanderous, but nonetheless
infinitely eccentric columnist you see on the page before you,
in the circa-1992 mall-style glamour shot mock-up (it was so
cloyingly obnoxious, I couldn't resist).
What's especially puzzling about this era, aside from the
paradoxical, yet entirely familiar, oh-so-long-ago-yet-oh-so-
recent aspect of it, was that it took me an entire school year
to recognize that a dorm diet consisting of beer, bacon and
candy did not constitute a physique-friendly menu. Granted,
"lucid" was not always the most appropriate description of
my state of mind, but such a concept ranks right above shoe-
tying which is to say it became a first class (perhaps AAA)
addition to my absurdly extensive collection of forehead-
slapping, eye-rolling moments, for which I don't have the
word allotment to delve into.
On the verge of creating yet another gloriously frameable
memory for my folks, I find this supposedly momentous
occasion largely perfunctory, and consequently, I'm pretty
ambivalent about the whole ordeal. However, I could just

Letters to the Editor
Student disapproves health care reform
I AM A DEMOCRAT! I believe in abor-
tion and know global warming is an actu-
ality. However, I do not support Obama's
health care reform. The bill, composed of
1,017 pages, surpasses the public's general
intelligence. Does the public know that
health care will be provided to everyone in-
cluding illegal citizens? Or that we, U.S. citi-
zens and residents, will be burdened with
more taxes to fund national health care?
What about doctors? What about the
increasing malpractice insurance costs that
are forcing doctors to retire or relocate?
What about the fact that doctors will have
a set wage? Should doctors all receive the
same income regardless of specialties? Is
it common knowledge that doctors leave
medical school with nearly half a million
dollars in debt? What about the fact that
doctors spend about three years in resi-
dency making roughly $30,000 and work
80-hour weeks? Think about that America
and decide for yourselves whether or not
this health care reform is fair.

Reader embarrassed over Westboro
church's distorted teachings
As a Christian, I cannot support the pro-


tests of the Westboro Baptist Church, and I
hope other Christians alike will not follow
this church's views or be discouraged of
their own faith.
I agree with Asa Walker of Westside
Baptist Church that our mission as Chris-
tians is to love others no matter who or
what they believe, even if it is contrary to
Christian beliefs, such as homosexuality. If I
were to confront someone who was gay and
call him or her a sinner, that would make
me a hypocrite because I am also a sinner.
We are all sinners. Along with Westboro,
the U.S. claims to be a Christian nation and
then skips or ignores certain parts of the
Bible and declares to speak the truth. God
said that all people are equal, yet the U.S.
once supported slavery and Westboro is
protesting against African-Americans? I
am confused because my God called me to
speak the truth and to love all.
It breaks my heart that people who iden-
tify themselves as Christians, such as West-
boro and shouting Turlington evangelists,
ruin the name of all Christians and falsely
distort the teachings of God.

Cartoon ignores efforts to help Haiti
This letter is in response to the Cynthia


Despres cartoon in the Thursday's paper
displaying the well-known UF trademark
"The Gator Nation is Everywhere" printed
on a wall with a student from UF's Docu-
mentary Institute painting "Except Hai-
ti" underneath. I believe this illustration
strongly undermines the numerous efforts
from students and faculty to aid the people
of Haiti.
It is understood that the cartoon may be
a reply to the recent decision made by the
university to no longer sponsor or sanction
student trips to Haiti due to health and safe-
ty warnings from the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention.
However, besides having a physical pres-
ence in the country, there are many things
that can be done and are currently being
done to support Haiti from our campus.
For instance, the student-run Gators
United for Haiti set a goal to raise $50,000
by the end of the spring semester with the
UF Athletic Association matching every do-
nation.

files misleading
When it comes to hindsight most indi-
viduals have 20/20 vision, which is clear in


MONDAY, APRIL 19, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 7



the article "Background Check." The article
at first glance appears to be an article about
the hiring process of the University Police
Department. However, in the midst of a
description of the polygraph procedure,
the writers mentioned information from
the personnel files of two of the officers in-
volved in the shooting of student Kofi Adu-
Brempong.
By giving these examples the article
seems to insinuate that past infractions on
the part of these officers were an indication
of the events to unfold. The article passes
judgment on these officers without giving
any information other than a brief mention
of illegal actions committed in their past
that did not keep them from getting jobs as
officers.
If a person were to read the personnel
files of every UPD officer, there would sure-
ly be examples of highly regarded officers
who had similar past violations. Any con-
clusion can be supported if you only exam-
ine the evidence that suits your purposes.
I bring this up because it concerns me
that writers may be manipulating informa-
tion for the sake of their articles, a natural
and often unintended effect of reporting.
The media has a bad reputation for being
biased, and we all have to be careful not to
perpetuate it.

Guest column

Graduate student questions university's academic integrity


My thesis partner, Roman Safiullin, and I recently
reached a compromise with UF to include video
footage shot for our thesis film in post-earthquake
Haiti after the recent UF travel ban had been imposed.
While we are happy that our film would not have to be
compromised in any way, we feel that our situation shines
an informative light on the operation of UF and College of
Journalism and Communications. And although we have of-
ten kept our comments brief and indirect, we now feel the
obligation to speak out.
Let's first be clear the university agreed to a compromise
only after we offered the concession of a disclaimer at the be-
ginning of our thesis film that stated the university did not
"sanction, sponsor or approve" post-earthquake material.
If this concession was not accepted, we would have filed
suit in federal court through our attorney, Gary Edinger.
The university has since admitted that the administration's
interpretation of the policy was overly broad.
It is extremely disappointing that it took the threat of a
lawsuit to reach a compromise, and it suggests that the uni-
versity administration is one that operates primarily on con-
frontation rather than cooperation.
The university has since opened a Human Resources in-


Jon Bougher vestigation into the actions of our pro-
Speaking Out fessor, Churchill Roberts. While the
intentions of this investigation have
not been clearly defined, it appears as
another threatening and retaliatory measure. Churchill was
a supporter of our film but had no hand in our decision to
return.
Unfortunately, the College of Journalism and Communica-
tions was unwilling to forcefully challenge the administration
on core issues of academic freedom and faculty and student
rights. We had hoped the college would advocate for the val-
ues of journalism in Haiti during this tragic time.
Instead, the college encouraged us to submit a film that was
half-finished, raising serious questions about academic integ-
rity. Despite a permanent installation of the First Amendment
within its walls, the college appeared disinterested in speak-
ing on its behalf.
But a larger issue remains the university still enforces a
travel ban that is unnecessarily restrictive and denies gradu-
ate students and faculty from performing important work in
Haiti.
While we understand the need for liability protection, we
feel that liability waivers or additional paperwork could be


completed to offer the university proper protection. Other
universities throughout the country have offered similar mea-
sures.
We believe that the tenor of comments from the adminis-
tration regarding the travel ban have also served to perpetu-
ate negative stereotypes about the Haitian people. During this
process, the administration stated that we could be "harmed,
injured or killed" while working in Haiti even months after
the earthquake.
Having traveled to the country since the earthquake, we
can say from firsthand experience that the administration has
an inaccurate and ill-informed picture of the country.
In the end, we believe our situation should question the
type of values that the university instills in its students.
Rather than promote a community of engaged citizens, the
university seems to prefer a Student Body that submits to bu-
reaucratic complacency and legal restraint.
We can only hope the issues that our situation raises will
promote a discussion, both in the College of Journalism and
Communications and the university, about the academic sac-
rifices that are often made in the name of administrative duty
and bureaucratic technicality.

Jewish student protesters


PROTEST, from page 1
Methodist Church, followed
by a stop at the UF Hillel. They
then went across town to Queen
of Peace Catholic Church before
rounding out the day at St. Au-
gustine Catholic Church.
Phelps-Roper, whose father,
Fred, is the pastor of Westboro
Baptist Church, said the city is
made up of rebels against God
who are sprinting toward de-
struction.
"Your university is a beacon
of disobedience that shines forth
from this nation," she said. [God]
gave you that fag of a mayor be-

Shirley Phelps-Roper

Church pastor

Phelps-Roper was referring
to Mayor-elect Craig Lowe, who
briefly addressed a counter-
protest at the Bo Diddley Com-
munity Plaza downtown while
members of the Westboro Baptist
Church picketed at UF.
At the counter-protest, which
was called Love Conquers Hate:
A Rally for Human Rights, Lowe
spoke about ways gay and les-
bian rights can be expanded in
Florida.
"Let's commit together so that
in Gainesville, Florida, love will
conquer all," he said.
Lowe wasn't the only public


figure speaking out against the
Kansas church.
Former mayoral candidate
Don Marsh picketed alongside
the counter-protesters at the
Trinity United Methodist Church
protest.
Carrying signs that said,
"While we were still sinners,
Christ died for us" and "Prosti-
tutes are entering the kingdom of
God ahead of you," Marsh made
it clear that the church did not
represent his viewpoints.
"These are not my people," he
said.

13 teams compete in Red Bull Cariot Race Saturday


By TYLER JETT
Alligator Writer

A monkey, a cheetah, a party-
size Pepsi tub on wheels, two men
in drag and a wooden chariot is a
messy formula for a photo finish.
But at the Red Bull Chariot
Race finals Saturday night, messy
wasn't a problem.
The wild animals or Money
Over Bitches of Sigma Chi Frater-
nity collided with the cross-
dressers known as Sexy Ladies at
the finish line in front of a crowd
of about 200.
The members of Sexy Ladies
fell into a 2-foot-high haystack
while Money Over Bitches stayed
on its feet, allowing the chee-
tah- and monkey-costumed team
members to pull their Pepsi tub
to victory.
Thirteen teams competed in
the chariot race, and Troy West,
Keith Merkel and Jared Wise of
Money Over Bitches were the last
group standing at the parking lot
of The Vault Nightclub, winning
VIP passes to the Red Bull Flug-
tag on July 10 in Miami.
The Red Bull Chariot Race
was part of the energy drink


company's grassroots campaign
to reach college students. Red


Bull has hosted the event at three will travel to eight more schools
other colleges besides UF and in the next two weeks.

Team Broseidon, right, battles team Almighty Blood Messiah, left, for the lead at the opening stretch
during the Red Bull Chariot Races held on Saturday afternoon in the Vault Nightclub parking lot.


The competition was divided
into three rounds, with two to
three custom-built chariots rac-
ing two laps simultaneously on a
course outlined with hay.
Aside from the Flugtag passes,
two other awards were given out:
the People's Choice Award and
the Archimedes Judges' Award.
Broseidon, a team with a shop-
ping cart decorated with waves
made of plastic foam, won the
People's Choice, and Red Bull
will provide drinks at the Brosei-
don members' next party.
Kiss The Girl, a teaming hon-
oring Disney's "The Little Mer-
maid," won a Red Bull Bomb
Dropper after receiving the cre-
ativity-based Archimedes Judg-
es' Award.
Kiss the Girl wrapped a plas-
tic kiddie pool around a tricycle,
and Lindsey McCoy and Nata-

pulled their roommate Lauren
McPherson around the course.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Concert benefits STD testing campaign


By JOEY FLECHAS
Alligator Writer

Helen Strain has a problem
with older people who don't
think they need to get tested for
sexually transmitted infections.
"They're not scared to have
sex, but they're scared to talk
about it," she said. "And se-
niors can get chlamydia."
As vice president of external
affairs for Planned Parenthood
of North Florida, Strain helped
organize a concert Saturday
night to benefit the Get Yourself
Tested campaign, a monthlong
movement to encourage people
of all ages and backgrounds to
get tested.
About 100 people gathered
at Brophy's Irish Pub for the
show.
The event was the brain-
child of Katie Coyne, who has
been working at Gainesville's
Planned Parenthood clinic as a
family planning assistant since
February.
"I think it's a good way to
reach out to the youth of the
community," she said.
Tables had buckets filled
with condoms and information
packets as centerpieces, and at-
tendees were greeted with red,

DeSclafani's struggles cost Gators finale against Wildcats

By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Staff Writer
achlang@alligator org

On a day meant for celebration, Anthony DeScla-
fani had little to be happy about.
The UF pitcher, who turned 20 on Sunday, strug-
gled from the start and helped dig a hole No. 7 Flor-
ida (25-10, 10-5 Southeastern Conference) could not
climb out of as Kentucky (22-14, 5-10 SEC) escaped a
series sweep with a 6-5 victory.
"The bright side is we got Paco (Rodri-
guez) back, and he threw outstanding
for five innings."
Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach


Harrison Diamona alligator stan
UF pitcher Anthony DeSclafani allowed eight hits and all six of Kentucky's runs in just 2.1 innings in the Gators' 6-5 loss on
Sunday. It was the sophomore's first start since March 24.


Rosario to transfer to Florida


* THE GUARD AVERAGED 16.7
POINTS PER GAME AT RUTGERS
LAST YEAR.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator org

Florida took a big step toward improving
its backcourt this weekend, and the Gators
aren't done recruiting yet.
Former Rutgers guard Mike Rosario will
transfer to UF after visiting Gainesville this
weekend, a team source confirmed, saying it
was a "done deal."
The 6-foot-3, 180-pound guard, who av-
eraged 16.7 points per game as a sophomore
with the Scarlet Knights, will have to sit out
next season but will be eligible to play during
the 2011-12 season.
Rosario becomes the program's second Big
East transfer in the last three years, joining ju-
nior center Vernon Macklin, who came to UF
from Georgetown.


While picking up Rosario will go a long
way toward fixing the Gators' lack of back-
court depth in the future, UF coaches were also
working this weekend to add more guards for
next season.
Matt Carlino, a 6-foot-2 guard from Bloom-
ington (Ind.) South High, came to Gainesville
on an unofficial visit with his father.
J.R. Holmes, Carlino's high school coach,
said UF assistant coach
Richard Pitino visited Car-
lino last week, attempting
to persuade the high school
junior to graduate this sum-
mer, skip his senior year
and commit to the Gators
for next season.
Rosario "I think they're looking
to try to get him to come,
from my understanding, now," Holmes said.
"That possibility is there, and I think that's one
of the things they're looking at. I think he'd be
smarter off staying in high school and getting

SEE HOOPS, PAGE 19


The Wildcats scored all of their runs in the first
three innings against the sophomore, who was mak-
ing his first start on the mound since March 24, and
jumped out to an early 6-0 lead.
"We obviously didn't get a great start from An-
thony," UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan said. "It's just
unfortunate we fell behind early in the game."
DeSclafani lasted just 2.1 innings and gave up six
runs on eight hits. In the three innings he appeared
in, the right-hander allowed the first two hitters to
reach base in each one.
Despite the bad start, UF still had ample oppor-
tunities to win Sunday thanks in part to the perfor-
mance of freshman reliever Steven Rodriguez.
Rodriguez, who made his first appearance since
going down with a finger injury March 24, came out
of the bullpen and threw a career-high five innings
of scoreless baseball.

UF drops final home game


By TONI-ANN MILLER
Alligator Writer

It was clear from the opening draw
that Florida would have to fight for
any opportunity it would get and capi-
talize on the chances it had if it was go-
ing to beat Vanderbilt on Sunday.
However, the Gators couldn't do
that.
UF (9-6, 1-3 American Lacrosse
Conference) fell 12-7 to the No. 8 Com-
modores (11-3, 4-0 ALC) behind a poor
offensive effort and sub-par defense.
Attacker Ashley Bruns led UF with
three scores, all of which came with less
that 15 minutes left in the game, while
Caroline Cochran, Caroline Chester-
man, Colby Rhea and Brittany Dashiell
each accounted for one of UF's seven


scores.
Midfielder Kitty Cullen had the
team's sole assist.
Offensively, the Gators played a
close first half. They took six of the
eight draws and had six more shots
than the Commodores, but their fail-


Lacrosse


ure to convert on
those shots led to a
low-scoring half. Flor-
ida had shots flying
way wide, bouncing
off the goal post, and
others going straight


to the goalkeeper's net.
"We had our opportunities, offen-
sively," UF coach Amanda O'Leary
said. "We did not shoot well at all. Our
offense really did a poor job of shoot-

* Former Rutgers guard Mike Rosario has reportedly decided to transfer to UF.
This is a nice pickup for a team that's usually on the wrong end of transfers.
... BYU all-time leading rusher Harvey Unga and his girlfriend Keilani Moeaki
withdrew from school for honor code violations. Many guess pre-marital sex is to
blame. I think they couldn't resist a cup of coffee, breaking the ban on caffeine.

Club Locer Room


By ALLISON BANKO
Alligator Writer

W an't be touched. Can't be stopped.
Can't be moved. Can't be rocked.
Can't be shook." These lyrics, from
"Can't Be Touched" by Body Head Bangerz,
boxer Roy Jones Jr.'s rap group, echo over
the speakers before every home UF base-
ball game, and the reason is far more than
the need for a catchy rap song.
Once Florida's athletes get the adrena-
line pumping through their veins, there is
no turning back. Whether it takes blue eye
makeup or a crazy dance move, how the
athletes get fired up is their own game.
With the continuation of the UF baseball
and softball seasons long after the halt of
classes (meaning smaller crowds ahead)
and the NCAA Gymnastics Champion-
ships on Thursday, athletes are serving up
their own jolts of energy to finish their sea-
sons strong.

*Our Son
If the baseball locker room had eyes,


they would witness something truly funky
during the Gators' pregame.
The most notable sight among the team's
cleats and sliders? The team's 6-foot-4
pitcher, Kevin Chapman, busting a move to
the song "Walk It Out."
But while rap is booming throughout
the locker room, there are some more, well,
sensitive songs being shared.
"I don't know if I should say this," in-
fielder Nolan Fontana said. "Josh [Adams]
and I listen to 'Our Song' by Taylor Swift.
But it was Josh's idea."
The songs oozing with femininity don't
just hide themselves for pregame pump-up
in the locker room, they leak onto the field
too.
Infielder Jerico Weitzel's at-bat song
sticks out like a sore thumb among his
teammates' Lil Wayne, Jay-Z and Eminem
tunes.
His song? The pop-club hit "TiK ToK"
by artist Ke$ha (a tune softball pitcher Ens-
ley Gammel also uses).
"I didn't choose that," Weitzel said. "I
had trouble picking out a song so Preston
[Tucker] picked that out for me."
While Tucker's prank will be vibrating
over speakers for the entire baseball season,
the team is all about seriousness during
their routine pregame prayer and discus-
sion of the opposing team's pitcher.
And when they step up to the plate, it's
time to get in the zone.
"I step out (of the box) and tell myself
what pitch I'm looking for," Weitzel said.
"Most hitters do something before getting
in the batter's box."
Fontana swipes the dirt to clear the plate
off.
Freshman Brian Johnson infuses his
faith into his on-field routines by making
a cross over the plate when he's up to bat,
and drawing another cross before the start
of each inning when he's performing on the
pitcher's mound.
"I do it because I'm so blessed to be out
there playing," Johnson said.

"In ft AlrToniht
Who would've thought that a bus driv-
er's jam would become a staple on the soft-
ball field?
But sure enough, a Phil Collins song
makes its way into every UF softball game.
"At the [Southeastern Conference Cham-
pionships] in 2008, our bus driver was ob-
sessed with the song 'In the Air Tonight,'"
catcher Tiffany DeFelice said. "It became
our anthem we kept winning with it."
Phil Collins' song can be heard during
the team's stretches, and the players even
perform the classic drum solo in unison.
However, DeFelice has her own pleth-
ora of rituals she goes through before the
series of stretching and air-drumming, and
it starts when she's getting dressed.
"I have to put my clothes on in the same
order," DeFelice said. "My stirrups go on
last. If I don't put them all on in order, then
I'm all out of whack."
And when the clothes are all on and
ready? Time to join in on the fun in what
the team refers to as "Club Locker Room."
"The locker room gets really, really
loud," Gammel said. "Sometimes, someone
busts out a dance move and things get real
rowdy."
While the locker room is popping with
music, the players still find time to primp in
front of the mirror amid the chaos.
"If I don't have a ribbon in my hair and
my nail polish and makeup and hair done,
then it is not going to be a good day," Gam-
mel said.
Once the Gators have everything per-
fectly in place, they go onto the field, and


- iRV


uourresy o1 Jim burgess
The UF softball team, much like the baseball and gymnastics teams, uses music to get
pumped up before and during competitions.


each athlete brings her own ritual to the
clay.
Gammel touches the dirt before every
pitch.
After her counterpart, pitcher Stephanie
Brombacher, has applied her signature blue
eyeliner and ribbon, she has some ornate
rituals of her own on the mound.
Rather than let a teammate hand it to
her, Brombacher is sure to pick the ball up
off the ground to start the inning, and she
isn't ready to throw until she taps the ball
on her leg.
And once DeFelice has spit out her gum
and put her clothes on in just the right or-
der, she lives up to her nickname of "Rag-
ing Bull" when she makes her debut in the
batter's box.
"I'm a different person on the field,"
DeFelice said. "I'm the aggressive one and
I destroy the batter's box. But I've tried to
take that back a bit."


Gymnastics meets are full of plenty of
sparkle and shine to paint the perfect scene
for some serious entertainment.
While other sports have spectators ad-
miring the back-and-forth competition, the
gymnasts are performing and putting on a
show. The UF gymnastics team recognizes
its position on center stage during team
huddles, when the Gators shout "Show
time!"
In gymnastics, the beat they bounce to
is a big deal.
And unlike the bounce before a back
handspring, the melodies aren't taken
lightly.
Lots of planning goes into each of the
songs for the individual floor dances.
"In the summer, each of the girls get a
couple of weeks where I sit down with
them," UF gymnastics volunteer coach Jer-
emy Miranda said. "They know their body
and what they like. It gives them owner-
ship of their routines, and they are excited
to have work to create the final product."
Miranda oversees all of the creative as-
pects for the team, dealing with the music
and choreography.
"This year, the girls chose sassy and
strong beat music," Miranda said. "They
wanted the crowd to be clapping and they
wanted to keep a driving rhythm."
Freshman gymnast Liz Green had to
reshape her floor routine from high school
and tailor it to fit her new surroundings
competing at the college level.
It didn't take long to select her music.


Once Miranda played a Britney Spears'
mix, Green pounced.
With the gymnasts, it's all about finding
confidence in their floor routine songs, and
impressing the judges is something that
could make or break them.
"If you just look at the judges and smile
at them, once they smile back you can re-
ally get into your floor routine," freshman
Ashanee Dickerson said.
Dickerson can join the likes of Beyonc6
in that they both seem to have their own
alter ego Beyonc6 has "Sasha Fierce" -
when performing.
Shy and reserved in everyday life with
a soft-spoken voice and timid demeanor,
Dickerson is anything but that on the gym-
nastics floor.
"It's a place where I can just let it all out
and have fun," Dickerson said.
Dickerson gets an extra pep talk before
meets through her cell phone, as her old
coaches pray with her and send her a text
before each meet.
And as a team, the Gators make sure to
pay special attention to a certain someone
in the locker room.
"When I first got here the older girls told
me that you have to be sure to touch the
alligator in the locker room before every
home meet," Green said.
Other musts of those in leotards? Each
competition, one girl is responsible for pro-
viding a motivational word and quote. One
week's word was simply "dominate," and
the word made its presence with the rep-
etition of the word alongside each rotation
during the week's meet shouted in the
team huddle.
But it's what's outside the floor, the lock-
er room and the practice studio that makes
for the biggest difference and it's in the
bleachers.
The gymnasts stress they get their big-
gest adrenaline boost from the fans.
"The crowd plays a big role," Dickerson
said. "Especially seeing all of those orange
shirts in the crowd at the SECs."
But the adrenaline doesn't terminate
upon the transition from stage to seats -
the audience gets in on the gymnast "show"
as well. In each floor routine, the girls have
kept the longtime tradition of incorporat-
ing the Gator Chomp to do along with the
audience.
And who says the audience can't join in
and dance to the floor or walk-up songs?
Enough thought was put into them so that
everyone can bust a move in the locker
room or not.

Brombacher throws shutout in UF's 5-0 win over Kentucky


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer


While it was another conference game on pa-
per, Florida felt like it was in the NCAA Tourna-
ment.
"I just wanted them to take the approach of
taking this like a Super Regional matchup, where
it's a 1-1 matchup and we've gotta win it," coach
Tim Walton said. "We don't lose very often and
we're in a tight race for the SEC (Southeastern
Conference), so we can't afford to have a week-
end letdown."
After starting hot and then fizzling out down
the stretch in the first two games, the No. 3
Gators (34-5, 14-3 SEC) were able to sustain their
first-inning momentum and ride a dominant
performance from ace Stephanie Brombacher to
a 5-0 victory and a series win over Kentucky (27-
18, 11-11 SEC).
Brombacher scattered eight hits over seven
innings of scoreless softball, striking out nine
Wildcats en route to her fifth shutout of the sea-
son.
It was a bounce-back performance for the
team and for Brombacher, who gave up three
runs in 5.1 innings of action on Saturday.
"I felt like I was more in command of my
pitches," Brombacher said. "I was placing them
where I wanted them, and I actually had an in-
side pitch to throw."
Florida jumped out to a first-inning lead for
the third-consecutive game, this time scoring a
pair on RBI doubles from Francesca Enea and
Brittany Schutte.
In Saturday's doubleheader, the Gators
scored a combined seven runs in the first inning
but only brought a single run across the plate in


innings two through seven. That lone run came
courtesy of Kelsey Horton, who came through
with another home run Sunday, leading off the
second inning with a deep blast to center.
The home run was Horton's third in only 16
career at-bats, and came in only her third-career
start.

"I felt like I was more in command of
my pitches. I was placing them where
I wanted them and I actually had an
inside pitch to throw."
Stephanie Brombacher
UFjunior pitcher

"It feels really good to be a contributor," Hor-
ton said. "When you get a really good swing on
it and it goes far, it's a good feeling."
Enea led off the third with a home run and
Michelle Moultrie singled home a run in the
fourth, giving the Gators the 5-0 lead that would
eventually become the final.
Kentucky loaded the bases with no outs in
the fourth and later with two outs in the sev-
enth, but in each case Brombacher was able to
pitch her way out of it.
"Today I mentally was more prepared for it
and I stayed a little bit mentally stronger and
pitched through those tough situations," Brom-
bacher said.
The win improves Florida's record to 5-0 in
games following losses.
Sunday's victory also kept the team's goal of
winning every SEC series alive.
"I think we responded really well," Brom-
bacher said. "Our goal is to win the SEC, and we
need to win every series to do that."

UF's Stephanie Brombacher shut out Kentucky in the Gators' 5-0 win Sunday
to rebound after allowing three runs in 5.1 innings in Saturday's 5-3 loss.

"The bright side is we got Paco
(Rodriguez) back, and he threw
outstanding for five innings,"
O'Sullivan said.
During one stretch, Rodriquez
sat down 11 of 12 hitters, giving
UF a chance to mount a comeback.
But missed opportunities in the
fourth and seventh innings would
come back to haunt the Gators as
they left the bases loaded in both


frames.
Still, UF made one last push in
the ninth, down 6-3.
Second baseman Josh Adams
came up to the plate in the final
frame with just six hits in 51 at-
bats during conference play, but
he added one hit to that total with
a two-run homer in the ninth to
make it a 6-5 game.
However, that was all Florida
could muster as sophomore Pres-
ton Tucker swung at the first pitch


he saw and grounded out to sec-
ond base with a
runner on first to
end the game.
"There was no
sense in taking
pitches there,"
O'Sullivan said.
"We were taking
DeSciafani (pitches) early
in the inning to
try to get some base runners and
we put ourselves in position, but


we certainly aren't going to put
Tucker taking pitches there, when
he has a chance to put something
out of the stadium."
The offense relied on the long
ball for the third-straight day.
Florida hit three homers Sunday
to push its total to nine round trip-
pers in the three-game series. Be-
fore this stretch, it took the Gators
10 games to hit its previous nine
homers.
"I'm in belief that our offense


is getting going again and we are
swinging the bats aggressively,"
O'Sullivan said.
Along with Adams' two-run
shot, Tucker hit his second homer
in as many games and freshman
Austin Maddox racked up his third
home run of the weekend.
Maddox sent a ball out of the
park in each game of the series. He
leads the team with 12 home runs.

Gators eyeing 2011 recruit for 2010

another year of experience."
Holmes said Carlino will also visit
UCLA, Butler and California in the near fu-
ture. Carlino originally committed to Indi-
ana in 2008, but reopened his recruitment in
late March and has not yet made a decision
about his future.
"I think he's just testing the waters,"
Holmes said. "It was just a situation he
wasn't 100 percent sure of, and he wanted
to make sure he was 100 percent sure before
he committed to going somewhere for four
years."
Florida coach Billy Donovan is planning
to travel to Bloomington, Ind., sometime
this week to follow up on Pitino's visit, Hol-
mes said.
Holmes added that, while Carlino is a
talented scorer, he might not be ready to
play point guard at the college level yet.
Given the Gators' current allotment of
guards for next season not including Ro-
sario, who can only practice with the team


- Carlino could find playing time at either
backcourt spot if he joins the team for the
2010-11 season.
"I've only had him for one year, but he's
really athletic. He can shoot the three, take
the ball to the basket," Holmes said. "In our
program, he's trying to become more of a
point guard. Another year of that will make
him a much better prospect for the college
level."
Rivals.com lists Carlino as the 122nd-best
overall and 30th-ranked
shooting guard in the
2011 class, from which
UF has already gained a
Men's commitment from high-
Basketball ly touted guard Bradley
Beal. The Gators are also
still in the running for
2011 guard Austin Rivers.
Chris Denson, a 6-foot-2 senior point
guard from Midland (Ga.) Shaw High, also
visited Gainesville this weekend on an of-
ficial visit. Denson has already received
scholarship offers from Western Kentucky,
Buffalo and North Carolina Greensboro.


Commodores pull away in second half

ing."
In the second half, UF looked to be
picking up its scoring and even led 6-5
with 10:19 to go, but draw controls were
the Gators' eventual downfall.
UF won 12 of the 21 total draws but
allowed its opponent to capture four-
consecutive draws after the 6:56 mark in
the second half, with Vanderbilt already
up 8-7. The Commodores converted on
those chances to push the game out of the
Gators' reach.
"We needed to compete harder,"
O'Leary said. "The draw is all about com-
peting for the ball. It's not necessarily
anything technical, it's just, who's going
to go harder after the ball, and they won
it."
On defense, the Gators contained


their opponent in the first half but had
no answer for Vanderbilt's offense in
the second half as it scored seven of the
final eight goals. UF allowed Ally Carey
and Carter Foote to rack up four goals
each while Katherine Denkler added two
scores and three assists on the day.
After the game, the Gators knew they
had missed a good opportunity to take
down a top-10 opponent and to get a sec-
ond conference win. The disappointment
was blatant.
"We came out knowing that each
player had to do (her) job," Bruns said.
"We knew the players that we had to shut
down and what we had to do offensively
to start getting the goals in.
"We were all hustling all over the
field, and it is a real downer to not win,
but we're going to learn a lot from it, and
next year, we're going to come out stron-
ger."

Smith sets year's best time in 400 at Tom Jones Invite


By RYAN BUTLER
Alligator Writer

The Tom Jones Memorial Clas-
sic was created to commemorate
the former Florida track and field
coach. The current Gators used
the meet to make some memories
of their own.
UF athletes won 11 events
and set 16 personal-best marks
in the home meet at Percy Beard
Track. The meet gave the Gators
another opportunity to prepare
for the Southeastern Conference
Outdoor Championship Meet in
May.
The meet's highlight was
the men's 400-meter dash. Se-
nior Calvin Smith won it in a
@*personal-best and
world-leading time
of 44.81. He beat
World Champion-
Men's ship medalists Ty-
Track son Gay and Renny
Quow while slicing
off .15 seconds from his previous
best.
Senior Mariam Kevkhishvili
set a personal-best mark in the
outdoor shot put with a throw of
18.46 meters. It was the second-
best throw in school history.
Fellow senior Shara Proctor
won the women's triple jump
with a distance of 13.29 meters.
It was the last home meet for
Smith, a 15-time All-American,


Kevkhishvili, a four-time NCAA
champion, and Proctor, a four-
time SEC champion.
"When our seniors like Calvin


[Smith] and Mariam [Kevkhishvi-
li] joined this program, it wasn't
at the level we are at today," UF
coach Mike Holloway said. "They


believed in what we were doing
and you can see the results of that
today."
Jeremy Postin won the men's


UF senior Calvin Smith ran a 44.81-second 400-meter dash to set the world's best time in the event at

freshman season.
Javelin thrower Evelien
Dekkers, also competing in her
final home meet, won the event
with a throw of 52.12 meters.
Keely Medeiros was second in the
women's shot put and finished
third in the discus.
Junior Shot putter Kemal Mesic
landed the best distance among
collegiate competitors with his
19.38-meter heave.
UF went one-two in the men's
long jump with two-time defend-
ing NCAA indoor triple jump
champion Christian Taylor win-
ning with a distance of 7.51 me-
ters, nearly half of a meter better
than freshman Omar Craddock.
The Gators also put up the top
two marks in the men's 4x100-
meter relay. The "A" team won in
39.06 seconds while the "B" team
finished in 39.31.
UF placed second through fifth
