Grad student



still in hospital
By KATHERINE BEIN
Alligator Writer
Kofi Adu-Brempong, the 35-year-old Ghanaian graduate stu-
dent who was shot in the face by University Police in March, re-
mains hospitalized and in stable condition, his sister-in-law Cyn-
thia Agyemang said Wednesday.
"His spirits are up," she said, "[he's] hopeful that things will
turn around in his favor."
Agyemang said the family is not anxiously awaiting the up-
coming release of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's
official report on the matter, but simply said, "We're at peace."
"His spirits are up; [he's] hopeful that things will
turn around in his favor."

Adu-Brempong's sister-in-law

On March 2, UPD officers responded to a worried neighbor's
call who heard screaming from Adu-Brempong's on-campus Cor-
ry Village apartment, according to UPD reports.
Police officers, along with a mental health professional, visited
Adu-Brempong the day before the shooting and arrest because a
professor from his college expressed concern for his mental stabil-
ity. The officers concluded, however, that Adu-Brempong was not
a danger to himself or others, the report stated.
The night of the incident, Adu-Brempong would not allow
police officers into his home. Officers were forced to talk to him

Investigation clears prof.


* ROBERTS WAS ACCUSED OF
SUPPORTING STUDENTS' HAITI TRIP.

By MINCH MINCHIN
Alligator Staff Writer

UF has cleared professor Churchill Roberts
of violating university policy by allowing two
graduate students to return to Haiti to com-
plete a video project.
According to a statement released Wednes-
day by members of UF's human resources de-
partment, the investigation, which was intend-
ed to determine whether Roberts "authorized
or facilitated" use of university funds for the
trip, concluded Roberts did nothing wrong.
Roberts, who specializes in video journal-
ism, is the thesis adviser for Jonathan Bougher


and Roman Safuillin, graduate students in the
College of Journalism and Communications.
Bougher and Safuillin were working on a film
project in Haiti for their master's-degree project
before the earthquake struck in January.
In the weeks following the earthquake, UF
implemented a safety policy that banned any
university funding from being used to sponsor
trips to Haiti.
On According to the report, Rob-
CampuS erts knew his students were go-
ing to return to Haiti to finish
their project, but said he did not feel it was his
responsibility to prevent them from going pro-
vided they did not use UF funds.
The nearly 12-week investigation confirmed
that Bougher and Safuillin funded their trip
with private donations from people interested
in their work.


CITY ELECTION ISSUES

Marsh supporters


take results to court


By JOEY FLECHAS
Alligator Writer

Although Gainesville's mayoral
election took place 65 days ago and
the runoff was 37 days ago, two lo-
cals have gone to court saying more
voting needs to be done because
Craig Lowe might not be the win-
ner.
Mason Alley and Phil Courson,
supporters of second-place finisher
Don Marsh, are hoping to prove the
city needs a special election because
of uncertainty about the voter reg-
istration of 44 voters.
Sarah Rumpf, attorney for Alley


and Courson, said she has evidence
to suspect there are people who
voted in the election who live and
work in other counties, states and
countries.
After produc-
ing a list of the 44
people in court
Tuesday, Rumpf
motioned to file
an amended com-
IMarsh plaint stating the
solution would
be to hold a new election because
it cannot be determined for whom
those 44 people voted.

Outgoing mayor shares proudest moments in office


Hanrahan served hometown for 6 years


By ANDREW PANTAZI
Alligator Contributing Writer

It's like a graduation. She's sad
about some things - her friend-
ships and experiences - but she's
glad to be starting a new phase,
Pegeen Hanrahan said.
She's moving out of
the mayor's office today.
"With a job like being the may-
or of your hometown, there are
obviously a tremendous number
of challenges and opportunities,"
Hanrahan said Wednesday night.
"There have been some really
wonderful and uplifting circum-
stances."
"It's especially moving to
me when it's a regular
person, not someone with
an interest with the city or
a cog in the city machine."
Pegeen Hanrahan
outgoing Gainesville mayor

One such circumstance hap-
pens when citizens recognize
Hanrahan, and they commend
her for her job, she said.
"It's especially moving to me
when it's a regular person, not
someone with an interest with


the city or a cog in the city ma-
chine," Hanrahan said.
During her six-year tenure
in office, Hanrahan has done a


lot of good, said Hanan Clarke,
a 60-year-old who has been in
Gainesville for 40 years and vot-
ed for Hanrahan in both of her


mayoral elections.
"She's done a lot of great
things," said Clarke. "I'd like to
see her stay involved."
One of the highlights of Hanra-
han's service was being selected
by the White House to represent

a speech by Vice President Joe Biden during the 2008 presidential election campaign. Right: Mayor-
elect Craig Lowe takes office today.


how American cities are promot-
ing sustainability.
Additionally, Hanrahan spoke
at the Copenhagen Climate Con-
ference last December.
"Gainesville was used as an
example of what cities are doing
right by the White House," Han-
rahan said.
Also under Hanrahan's watch,
Gainesville Regional Utilities
was named Energy Star's partner
of the year.
"Those are the kinds of thing
that make you feel like it's well-
spent time when you're por-
ing over a development plan at
10:30 at night and you want to go
home," she said.
Hanrahan, a Gainesville-na-
tive with four degrees from UF,
isn't looking to leave her home-
town.
"The children are really ex-
cited I'll be home," she said. "My
husband is more than excited be-
cause he has carried the burden of
having two small children while
I'm out until 9, 10, 11 o'clock two
or three nights a week and travel-
ing 20 days a year, if not more."
But Hanrahan has not ruled
out future public service. She is
keeping her eyes on Florida's No-
vember elections, which might
open opportunities for her, she
said.


Attorney for mayor-elect Lowe requested that the case be dismissed


MAYOR, from page 1


As evidence to support her claims,
Rumpf pointed out one of the 44 voters
used the address of Salty Dog Saloon as
his or her place of residence.
"We ask that the election results be set
aside, and that the voter rolls be cleaned of
these questionable voters," Alley said.
Alley noted the issue was important be-
cause of the narrow election results.


In the runoff election April 13, Craig
Lowe defeated Don Marsh by 42 votes.
"We're dealing with this because of the
margin of victory," he said. "I have nothing
personal against Commissioner Lowe."
Alachua County Circuit Judge Victor L.
Hulslander will make a decision on how
the case will move forward, if at all.
Cherie Fine, Lowe's attorney, motioned
that the case be thrown out.
Unless the judge orders otherwise,


"We're dealing with this because
of the margin of victory. I have
nothing personal against Commis-
sioner Lowe."
Mason Alley
Marsh supporter

Lowe is scheduled to be sworn in at noon
today.
Fine said she would not be surprised if


that decision comes soon.
"It's best for the city that there be a
mayor and there be no cloud over who
that mayor is," she said.
Rumpf, who practices out of Winter
Park and has commuted to get involved in
the case, said she wants to make sure the
political process is carried out fairly.
"Election law is a narrow area of the
law," Rumpf said. "It's one of my pet is-
sues."

dog is cruel.

Senators join Progress Party


Three left Student Alliance


By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer

Three senators representing the
Student Alliance party announced
their new affiliation with the Progress
Party after voicing their dissatisfac-
tion with the policies of their former
party.
Student Alliance party Sen. Alan
Martin, who represents graduate stu-
dents; Jose Soto, a summer replace-
ment senator who represents graduate
students; and Tim Johnson, a replace-
ment senator for the College of Liber-
al Arts and Sciences, cited campaign
tactics and internal politics as their
reasons for switching their party af-
filiation.
Martin said statements made by
Student Alliance party members led
him to believe the Student Alliance
party was responsible for swastika fli-
ers distributed across campus in Feb-
ruary before the Student Government
election.


Martin also said he was led to be-
lieve Student Alliance party Sen. Gra-
ham Clark was chosen by the party to
appear on the ballot because he threat-
ened to turn the party website into a
pornographic website.
"I can't prove any of this," Martin
said. "It is possible given everything
I heard that there is a more innocent
explanation. I just felt like I had to do
something."
Student Alliance party Senate
leader Jonathan
Student Ossip said any
Government statements Mar-
tin overheard
were meant as sarcastic jokes. He
denies the Student Alliance party had
anything to do with the fliers or slated
anyone who was undeserving.
The Student Alliance party, which
was formed when the Progress Par-
ty and the Orange and Blue Party
merged, is not splitting apart, Ossip
said.
Unite Party Sen. Ben Meyers, who


represents the agricultural college,
said his party has always worked well
with the Progress Party.
"We are definitely looking forward
to working with Progress," he said.
"All of our senators are obviously
on board with our policy and fight-
ing for students' rights, which is what
we're here for," Ossip said.
Former Progress Party Sen. Dave
Schneider said there are no definite
plans to re-launch the Progress Party
or put it on the SG ballot for the fall.
"We're still taking it one step at a
time," Schneider said.
During the meeting, senators also
unanimously passed a resolution call-
ing for the continued cleanup of the
oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and for
more safety regulations that would
prevent such a spill in the future.
Two additional agency directors
were unanimously approved in the
Senate. Andrew Fagin will be the
new Student Government Productions
director and Sara Makda will be the
new director of Students Taking Ac-
tion Against Racism.

ADU-BREMPONG, from page 1

through his open bedroom window for about two and half
hours before the he fell silent, the report stated.
Fearing that Adu-Brempong had done something to harm
himself, officers forced their way into the apartment.
When Adu-Brempong approached the officers, they fired
two Tasers, which failed to connect, three rounds of bean-bag
shots, which failed to subdue him, and two shots from an auto-
matic rifle, the report stated.
Adu-Brempong, who suffered from polio as a child, was
rushed to Shands at UF where he was placed under a false
name and treated for his injuries. His condition is no longer
critical, although he has lost part of his jaw and tongue. He is
currently charged with one count of second-degree aggravated
assault and one count of third-degree resisting arrest with vio-
lence, according to Alligator archives.
Since the shooting, three protests have been held on cam-
pus. The protesters have demanded, among other things, that
the shooting officer, Keith Smith, be terminated and that all
charges against Adu-Brempong be dropped.
The FDLE and UF have both conducted their own investi-
gations on the case. The FDLE report was completed in April
and was turned over to the State Attorney's Office for consider-
ation. State Attorney Bill Cervone said that progress continues
to be made, and that the report, along with his recommenda-

Pricey Party

Democrats spend

$800,000 on victory

Last night, Democrats celebrated their victory in
a special election for an empty seat in Pennsylva-
nia's 12th Congressional District. We just wonder if
having another Democrat on Capitol Hill was worth the
$800,000 the party spent on advertising.
The winner, Mark Critz, was a long-time fixture under
Rep. John Murtha who left the seat vacant when he died
in February. Murtha, although a Democrat, ran on a pro-
life and pro-gun platform; he was even given an "A" from
the National Rifle Association for his voting record. Like
Murtha, Critz is also pro-life and pro-gun.
The GOP candidate would not have been any different.
Murtha was hesitant to vote on health care reform without
the Stupak-Pitts Amendment, which forbade federal mon-
ey being used to pay for any health care plan that would
cover an abortion.
Critz has never held elected office, so we don't have
the luxury of knowing if he will vote the same way as his
predecessor. But we are guessing this lackey-turned-Rep-
resentative will not have the temerity to stray too far from
Murtha's formula. After all, the guy had a 36-year career
in Washington.
What is the point in celebrating? The Democrats spent
more than $800,000 on a campaign and have little to show
for it. All those color-coded seating charts can stay the
same, but Critz is blue in name only. The last time we
checked that doesn't mean a thing.


Power Struggle


The war between the
states, or between one
state and a growing
list of cities, is starting to get
heated.
Los Angeles decided to
hop on the bandwagon and
boycott official travel to Ari-
zona because of the state's
controversial immigration
law, which allows police to
demand identification from
anyone it suspects is in the
country illegally. Arizona's
response: turn off LA's
power.
The sprawling California
city gets a sizable chunk of
its power from Arizona, and
if the state follows through
with its threat it could end
up being a long, hot summer
for people living in the city.
We think the immigra-
tion law is little more than
legally sanctioned racial pro-
filing, but we are not so na-
ive to think Arizona would
ignore threats to its tourism


economy.
What bothers us is that
Arizona officials seem more
willing to dig their heels
into the ground and fight
back than consider listening
to the public outcry against
the law.
Boycotting travel punish-
es people for simply living
in a state, and threatening to
cut power for millions cer-
tainly will not make Arizona
a popular tourist destina-
tion. In fact, it sidesteps the
problem all together.
If Arizona really wanted
to help, it might try to as-
suage fears that visitors will
be harassed by police for
looking Hispanic once they
step off a plane.
This back-and-forth de-
bate amounts to nothing
more than a game of tit-for-
tat that punishes the wrong
people. It needs to stop be-
fore everyone is left in the
dark.

He told me the specific policy details of Ronald Rea-
gan's use of capitalism and freedom to undermine Sovi-
et rule are still classified and not generally known. Rea-
gan's maneuvers helped those under Soviet dominance
to recognize the bonds of government and break free.
It seems unlikely that the media and the current
administration will ever publicize this part of history.
Yet the proof is not hidden, just forgotten. Consider
Pope John Paul II's speech in Poland to a crowd of 3
million that helped spark the citizen revolt against
Communism. Or consider the numerous Russian
scholars who admit the communist bloc fell be-
cause the government spent the Kremlin's last ruble.
With the fall of Communism came the beginning
of the decline of the old-world political elite, those
with the state of mind that stemmed from monarchies
and autocracies. Through the 20th century, Commu-
nist leaders fronting so-called "people's movements"
kept this idea alive as they ruled with an air of enti-
tlement to the country's resources and to the citizens
they oppressed. These were the leaders of the Cold
War who fought so strongly against capitalism be-
cause they knew it meant a severe blow to their power.
Now we see a similarly elitist mind-set exhibited by
some top Democrats. Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Frank and
many others conduct themselves with a defeatist at-
titude toward the American individual in the form of
seeding dependency-increasing entitlement programs.
They are amassing and centralizing power by taking
over some of the largest private sectors of American


Bryan Griffin business (the car industry, health
Speaking Out care, etc.). They continue to reward
cronies, supporters and unions
with various government advan-
tages. They are perpetuating the elitist mind-set using
socialist-style programs. Well, this is America, and so-
cialism should be completely off the table.
That conversation is over, and no modern poli-
tician should even permit it to be mentioned.
If you have read my columns before, you know I am a
firm believer in personal freedom and the power of the
free market to accomplish objectives over government
mandate. After discussing the long conquest of Com-
munism by freedom and capitalism, my friend and I
began to discuss the ramifications of letting our govern-
ment continue to amass and centralize power.
The American people will have a choice to
make in 2012-a serious, life-altering choice that
will decide the future and fate of our country.
It is at this crossroads that we can choose to quash the
power trip of our government officials. We can choose
to be a country of individual freedom that can provide
free-market means with limited government support to
aid our fellow citizens in need.
Our choice will be simple and clear: We ei-
ther move into a golden age of personal freedom
or continue to enable elitist political tendencies.
America can take heart. The first step down the path of
personal freedom is taken with the inalienable power
each citizen holds to vote. The best part about it is that
the choice is ours, and it is a simple one to make. How-
ever, we better not put it off any longer because we have
spent our last dollar-about 12 trillion times.

Letters to the Editor
Three-time graduate offers advice for
the summer student
As a three-time UF graduate, I have 10
summer semesters under my belt. Next to
fall, it is my favorite time in Gainesville
because it has many benefits over the reg-
ular season.
One significant advantage is much less
traffic on campus and a generally slower
pace getting around. The alert student can
take advantage of the fact that everyone is
too hot to move very fast.
You must always wear sunglasses.
Another is that most professors don't
want to be there, so some of them will
cut you slack - but don't count on it.
My worst mistake was taking differential
equations during Summer B. Keep the
workload light, you deserve it.
And because Gainesville is so stinking
hot, frequent trips to the springs or the
beach are that much more fun. Just remem-
ber to treat the locals with respect because
- regardless of your state of mind - you
are a Gator.
Summer lets you burn the candle at
both ends and have too much fun with less
at stake. It's excellent preparation for the
fall, when you will have many opportuni-
ties to get your butt in a sling big time.


Just don't forget the sunglasses.

Superhero stories contribute to
America's culture
Comics-and comic-based shows and
movies-represent a modern mythology
that is otherwise missing from our Ameri-
can culture. Humans have always enjoyed
telling epic tales of heroes who are capable
of much more than mortal men. These sto-
ries have been around for centuries and
will persist.
These tales also serve a valuable pur-
pose: They inspire humanity to achieve
greatness. Whether the Alligator Edito-
rial Board collectively enjoys them is irrel-
evant. Do you also dislike Greek, Roman
or Norse mythology? Are you planning
to slam them in your next editorial? You
kiddies might try researching a topic and
learning about its intrinsic value to a soci-
ety before running off at the keyboard.

UPD collects about 400 abandoned bikes in spring


* UPD REMOVES 750 TO
1,000 BIKES EACH YEAR.

KRISTEN BOWE
and RAVEN PRITCHETT
Alligator Contributing Writers

Students walking around campus
may wonder about the colored slips
of paper on abandoned bicycles.
They're auction slips from UPD
that give the owner five days' notice
before the bike is broken from its
lock and auctioned.


Jean-Tui Popenoe, a mechanic for
Student Government Bike Repair,
said the bike collection is an oppor-
tunity for UPD to raise money and
help keep the campus clean.
"These are the bikes people don't
ride," he said. "Those who actually
care about their bike wouldn't leave
it in an abandoned state."
According to UPD spokesman
Jeff Holcomb, officers put tags on
abandoned bicycles about four times
a year. The notices give owners five
days to either relocate their bikes
or remove the tags. If the tag is re-
moved, police cannot confiscate the


bike by law, Holcomb said, which
keeps the bikes on campus.
UPD removes about 750 to 1,000
bicycles each year, despite efforts
to contact students who have reg-
istered bicycles, Holcomb said. At
the end of the spring semester, UPD
removed 393 abandoned bicycles
from the campus.
On If five days pass
Campus and the tags remain,
UPD takes the bikes to
the UF surplus unit to be auctioned
off in groups of seven. According to
Holcomb, students have 30 days to
reclaim their bicycles from the Sur-


plus Warehouse before an Internet
auction. About 8 to 10 percent of the
bikes are reclaimed.
Unclaimed bikes must go to the
warehouse because under state law
it is illegal to donate the bicycles
to charity. Although some of the
bikes that arrive in the warehouse
are rusted and in need of repair, the
bikes sell at a group rate for prices
ranging from $40 to $140, according
to David Dykes, property manager
for Asset Management Services.
"We keep auctioning the bikes
until a profit is made," Dykes said.
Profits pay for the removal of the


bikes and for the the Internet auc-
tion. The remainder sponsors a UF
scholarship fund, Dykes said.
Local bike shop owner Ted
Kubisek said his shop, Spin Cycle,
doesn't buy any of the bikes from
the auction but does repairs for cus-
tomers who purchased their bikes
from the auction.
"Most of the bikes are depart-
ment store bikes that are deterio-
rated. A nice bike is not deserted,"
Kubisek said.
Most of the people who buy de-
serted bikes use them for recreation-
al purposes, he said.

.XXX will add porn sites


By KATHERINE BEIN
avenue writer


The Internet is for porn, and if a contro-
versial proposal gets backing, there could
be a whole lot more of it coming soon.
The International Corporation for As-
signed Names and Numbers is mulling over
the idea of creating a new domain for the
scandalous sites, ".xxx," to set them apart
from less obscene content.
Like all things kinky, it's been done be-
fore. ICANN announced in 2005 that the
domain would be created but reversed the
decision a year later and rejected it a third
time in 2007.
ICANN is scheduled to take this most re-
cent stance in June.
The idea is that parents, schools and
employers could easily block adult content.
The issue is that free-speech advocates fear
such distinction could lead to censorship, as
well as questions as to who decides what
qualifies as obscene.
Professor David Carlson, executive direc-
tor for the Center for Media Innovation and
Research, said there is no way to tell wheth-


er the proposal will finally be implemented
but guessed that it would be even more dif-
ficult to enforce.
"The Internet is unlike anything else ever
known to man in that no one owns it, no
one controls it," Carlson said. "I don't know
whether (the proposal) would have the in-
tended effect."
Even more, Carlson admitted there isn't
much, if anything, that can be done to con-
vert preexisting sites.
There would be nothing to keep porn
".com"ers from keeping the old
On the sites running while simultane-
Sously opening new venues with
the ".xxx" domain. That double
domain penetration coupled with new sites
could result in a lot of sticky tissues, I mean
issues.
Brian Greenfeild, a fourth-year biology ma-
jor at UF, said he doesn't think his porn con-
sumption would be affected by the change
but sees the use in it preventing youngsters
from stumbling onto pornographic sites.
When asked about the electronic land-
grab sure to follow, Greenfeild said he was
all for it.

Drink to American craft beer


By RICHARD STEHLI
avenue writer

Frost your glasses and grab your
bottle opener because this is Amer-
ican Craft Beer Week. Let's take a
few minutes and give thanks for the
goodness of craft beer in the USA.
You might think this country is
soaked in cheap, flavorless beer,
but be thankful you weren't around
in the '70s. In the spirit of a shiny,
new national culture, low price and
homogeneity took precedence over
beer quality in a big way. There
were less operating brewers and
breweries in America than at any
other time in history, and the vast
majority of beer was bland, to say
the very least. At one point, super-
markets carried generic "Beer," a
drink so terrible no company even
put its name on the can.
Eventually, forces converged
to propel us out of the craft beer
stone age and into the sort of fine
"beerscape" we see today.
Students started traveling and

studying abroad. After drinking in
Belgium or Germany, coming home
to a relative wasteland of bever-
ages was not acceptable.
Also, the late beer guru Michael
Jackson (not that one), better
known as "The Beer Hunter," pub-
lished his first book in 1977, "The
World Guide to Beer." The book be-
came a best seller and influenced
millions at home and abroad to put
down that bland light beer and pick
up something a little better.
Perhaps most importantly, then
28-year-old Fritz Maytag bought the
ailing Anchor Brewing Company in
San Francisco. After years of re-
vamping the recipe and brewery
and doing everything from bot-
tling to making deliveries, Maytag
turned the company around and
profited. Once people saw that it
was possible to make great tasting
beer and make money doing it, the
floodgates opened, and craft brew-
ing was reborn.
Since then, craft brewing has
taken the country and the world by

storm. Hops have been elevated
from an additive to the star of the
show. Famous Old-World styles
have been reproduced and im-
proved with American brewers at
the helm. It was like a new Ameri-
can manifest destiny, exploring and
conquering the unknown to its lim-
its with a mix of skill and spirit.
So raise a glass to all those that
came before us, whether brewery
owners, brewers, critics or simply
the man on the street demanding
something that tastes better. Our
forerunners have done well for us,
and the limitless choices of great
beer available all over this country
is one thing our parents' genera-
tion won't have to apologize for.
Come celebrate American Craft
Beer Week at Stubbies & Steins
tonight from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. for
$1 off all American craft beers and
a chance to meet the guys from
Gainesville's own Swamp Head
Brewery. If you can't make it to the
event, don't sweat it - just grab the
best tasting beer you can find.

Crush, lust or love?


By JON SILMAN
avenue editor

She was working at a computer
next to me the first time I saw her,
and the glowing monitor made her
face shine a little bit. She stood up,
ignored me and I took the time to
get a good look at her. She wasn't
tall, but her hair was longand wispy.
She had a smile and laugh that car-
ried through the room. I shook her
hand when I introduced myself hop-
ing she wouldn't notice I couldn't
catch my breath. That was a crush.
We would stroll and talk through
scenic paths, drinking coffee and
harboring a growing sense of, "I
want your body-ism." We took a trip
in the sun for work and at some
point had developed an easy rap-
port that was fun to fall back on. It
was a careful rhythm barred only by
the fact I was in a tumultuously frag-
ile relationship. She got drunk and
confessed herself to me in casual


tears. I held her close for the first
time, and for the first time I felt a
possibility of sex. My blood boiled.
That was lust.
The two of us raged, fought and
slept for days. She had to leave
town. I had to make a decision.
I decided to try and make it work.
We were making a late-night din-
ner in the dim glow of her mother's
granite kitchen, and I realized that
no one had ever made me laugh so
much. Living without this woman
would not be living at all. Her shape
and presence were so strong and
her eyes so soft. I had to stop and
take stock of what I had found. I was
following her up the stairs admiring
her, and I realized forthe firsttime in
my life I had somethingto lose. That
was when I fell in love with her.
We meet people. We like them,
and sometimes we think we love
them. But it can be difficult to dif-
ferentiate the difference. It can only
help if you try.

Bars can be an intimidating hangout for the antisocial


When you find yourself living
in Gainesville during the
summer months, acquiring
new friends to band together with is
key to survival. There are plenty of
places to do this: farmers markets,
school clubs, the Taco Bell in the Re-
itz Union and so on.
Since I recently reached the legal
age in which life becomes worth liv-
ing, 21, I decided to search the bars
of this fair town for new friends to
exploit-uh, I mean, hang out with.
Now readers, full disclosure: I
am no stranger to bars. Besides
being an exceedingly popular writer
for this publication, I also moonlight


as a mediocre (at best) stand-up
comedian, plying my trade in bars
since my freshman year. It was in-
credibly nerve-racking being under-
age and sober in a bar. Most of my
time was spent sitting in the corner
looking at my phone like I had just
received a gravely important text
message (really, it was a gravely
important game of Brick Breaker).
I've had three years to get over
the social anxiety that comes with
being in a bar with a bunch of
drunks, and 21 years to get over
the anxiety that comes with living
in a house with a bunch of drunks
(Hi, Mom! Happy Birthday, Dad!),


S so it's no
surprise that
when I confi-
dently stride
into a bar
nowadays,
I quickly
Dave Johnson crumble and
Columnist cower in the
corner, going
back to work on my high score.
However, as my stand-up act be-
comes more polished (read: more
fart jokes), I've found something
amazing happens. When I do well,
people come talk to me. One girl
actually asked me if I was single,


then if I would take her number
(have you ever been taking a test
that seemed too easy, and all of
a sudden start thinking that you
might be actually wrong about ev-
erything?).
Someone else bought me a
drink. I began to realize that peo-
ple might be attracted to success.
However, even though others felt
the need to break the ice for my
highly successful self, I still man-
age to keep things very frosty. One
such exchange:
Girl: "Hi, you were very funny!"
Me: "Yes, I was. I also write a
column for the Avenue."


Girl: "Really? Wow. Maybe you'd
like to write a column about me."
Me: "I guess."
Basically, I'm nearly hopeless.
For some reason bars, the easiest
places in the world to meet people,
make me more antisocial than that
kid who never left his dorm room
(me).
But there is a glimmer of hope:
I still have that girl's number, read-
ers, and we've been texting each
other constantly. I'll soon work
up the courage to actually send
her words, instead of every single
emoticon I can think of. Maybe a
fart joke-those seem to work.


'Vincere' tells tale of fascism, Mussolini's lost romance


* FILM OPENS FRIDAY AT THE HIPP.

By BRITT PERKINS
avenue writer

If there is one gleaming message in the
desolate heart-pullerthat is "Vincere," it'sthis:
marry a fascist and expect to get screwed.
Vincere is Italian for "win," and that's pret-
ty much the opposite of what happens to the
supposed first wife of Benito Mussolini, Ida
Dalser (Giovanno Mezzogiorno).
She sells all her possessions to help fund
Mussolini's first newspaper, and in the pro-
cess inadvertently helps the rise of fascism.
As any torrid love affair should become,
things get hot really quick. However, as any-
one dating a future dictator should expect,


there are obligatory "red flags," so to speak.
In a particularly intense scene, Mussolini
(Filippo Timi) is fleeing police with a massive,
bleeding head wound. Any normal woman
would probably not find this particularly sexy,
but Dalser takes advantage of the opportunity
to sneak in a quick makeout sesh.
Aroused by his political passions and ac-
tivism in the Socialist party, Dalser supported
Mussolini financially and even gave birth to
their son in 1915.
Mussolini eventually found his true calling
during World War I, and like any good man
who elevates his position in life, leaves Dalser
in the dust.
Dalser, being the type of woman who gets
turned on by head wounds, never gets over
it.


Mussolini was a stone cold killer and
wasn't having any of that, so he put her in
a psychiatric hospital where she eventually
died. Oh, and little Benito died in an insane
asylum as well at age 26.
Spliced into the melodrama of the film are

in all his tyrant-like glory. A
stark reminder of the harsh-
"*{ " ness and dark reality of the
man and his era.
Juxtaposed against the
raids and bombings are the
intense emotions and pas-
sions the two actors at first convey, then lose.
It is a tragic tale of love found and lost, but a
convincing one.
Though heart-wrenching at times, the film


deals with broad and intense subject matter
in a way that punches you in the gut and still
leaves you wanting more.
"Vincere" has been making the rounds
and winning awards, as well. It took Best Ac-
tor, Best Actress, Best Director and Best Cine-
matography at the Chicago International Film
Festival.
So if you're lookingfor something light and
fluffy, this particular film may not be your cup
of tea. But if you want to be challenged by
an unconventional love story that makes you
think, by all means have a drink.
"Vincere" opens at the Hippodrome
State Theatre downtown Friday with two
showings at 6:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.
The film runs until May 27. For more
movie times visit thehipp.org/cinema/.

Gainesville Comedy Showcase takes on area's bar scene


Harrison Diamond/Alligator Staff
Comedian Brock Savage performs his stand-up comedy routine at XS on
Monday night.


By DREW WILSON
opinions editor

"I drive a Honda Fit, which is
ironic," Chris Cope said.
A rotund 7-year stand-up vet-
eran, Cope was one of the eight
comedians who performed at XS
on Monday night. The dance floor,
which is usually empty on Mondays,
is converted to a comedy club each
week so Cope and a revolving lineup
of fellow Gainesville Comedy Show-
case comedians can perform.
Besides putting out tables and
chairs, the bar staff worked the
crowd, taking drink orders so peo-
ple could pay attention to the show
rather than walk to the bar for a
refill. One of the bartenders, Eric
Buskirk, said he has been coming
to the showcase shows for nearly
four years. He even volunteers to
come in on his day off to work the
XS performance. He makes it a
point to laugh or cheer to rile up the
crowd whenever he finds something
funny.
"Laughter is infectious," Buskirk
said. "I'm just trying to do my part."
The show was scheduled to start
at 10:30 p.m. but it took a few min-
utes for the 40-person crowd to set-
tle down with drinks in hand.
The comedians performed about
10 minutes of material each. But
Calvin Cole, a featured comedian,
took the stage for around 20 min-
utes and Cope, as the headliner,


rounded out the show with a half-
hour set.
"Life is all about enjoying your-
self while touching other people,"
Cole said.
Cole, a 22-year-old UF graduate,
has been doing stand-up comedy
for about three years and is repre-
senting UF on the University Stand-
up Comedy Club national team ("U
SUCC," as its members call it) for
his second year running. The four-
person squad competes against
teams from other schools in what
Cole describes as an "NCAA tourna-
ment head-to-head fashion."
Crowd voting decides who ad-
vances in the competition, he said,
and lastyearthe UFteam made itto
the final stop in Aspen, Colo., before
it went out in third place. Cole is op-
timistic about the team's chances
to go all the way this year, though.
"We're up against Duke right
now," he said. "And we're definitely
going to beat them."
The laughs were sparse at times,
but they were never hard to come
by for Cole and the other come-
dians, some of who perform up to
four nights a week in the Gainesville
area.
It's only the second week
Gainesville Comedy Showcase has
performed at XS, but the show's
MC, Dave Johnson, sees the Mon-
day night show as the happy me-
dium among the troupe's other
shows, which he said range from


come-as-you-are to an almost pro-
fessional level.
Johnson describes Gainesville
Comedy Showcase's Friday night
show at the Clarion Lounge as the
show to see for people looking for
a professional comedy show in the
area. Typically fewer comedians are
put on the roster, and they are usu-
ally granted more stage time.
It is a far departure from the
Thursday night shows at the Clari-
on Lounge and the Tuesday night
shows at 1982, which have an ama-
teur theme. In order to get on the
lineup for one of those shows, as-
piring comics just need to make the
other comedians laugh.
"It really all hinges on what they
show us at the Sunday workshops,"
Johnson said, "The '82 show is pret-
ty much the closest thingto an open
mic in Gainesville."
Tuesday and Thursday are not
without their benefits. According to
Cole, those shows are when he and
some of the other comedians try
out their new material.
"There are a lot of regulars at
1982," he said. "They're there ev-
ery week, and I like to reward them
with new material whenever I can."
Johnson said GCS plans to put on
a show at XS every Monday at 10:30
p.m. in addition to the group's other
weekly shows at 1982 on Tuesdays
at 9:45 p.m. and at the Clarion
Lounge on Thursdays and Fridays at
9:15 pm.

Paxico via Mexico debuts EP, discusses band's future


By ERIN RAUCH
avenue writer

There were no maracas in Paxico via Mex-
ico's set on Saturday. None of the band mem-
bers were wearing sombreros.
But a young woman in the crowd eager to
find a Hispanic beat shook her empty, plastic
beer cup with so much purpose and enthusi-
asm I wondered if she thought she was actually
holding the gourd-shaped


rattle.
Looking around I noticed the Atlantic's
crowd was drifting into a trance.
Two girls to my left were moving slowly and
touching their hips slightly, making sure not
to spill a drop of their cranberry-vodka drinks.
A boy wearing a backward plaid baseball cap
swayed and sang along with his eyes closed.
All the while, Paxico via Mexico, a local
Gainesville band, sang lyrics swathed in quiet
emotion with undertones of folk and rock.


Harrison Diamond/Alligator Staff
Paxico via Mexico performs from the band's new EP, "Under the Mountain," Saturday night
at The Atlantic.


Ricky Kendall, the lead singer, said it took
around two weeks to finish the band's second
EP, "Under the Mountain," which the band de-
buted atthe show. He said the band sold about
60 EPs that night.
Jared Groom, the band's animated drum-
mer, sang along to every song even though he
had no microphone.
"I'm a pocket drummer," he said. "I like to
groove a lot."
Two years ago, the band played its first
show as Ricky Kendall and the Spooky Divide.
The original idea was to change the name of
the band for every show. Instead, fans voted on
120 names the band posted on its Facebook
page.
While in a Mexican restaurant, the band
downsized the list fans had voted on. It came
down to "The Paxico Kids," but the band was
not satisfied.
John Dunne, lead vocalist and guitarist, is
from Kansas, where Paxico is a city. Thus, Paxi-
co via Mexico was born.
Three hours before they went on stage the
band members and friends went to their favor-
ite bar in downtown Gainesville, Alcove. Bass
player Tony Cordova drank a Lagunitas Hairy
Eyeball, a seasonal malt ale, and we talked
about upcoming events for Paxico via Mexico.
Kendall said the band hope to release its
firstfull-length album in August. Band members
have been able to produce the album thanks to
donations from fans and friends. Kendall said
in less than three months they raised $943.
Although three of the six members will no
longer play in the band, fans will still hear them
on the album.
Groom said he will miss the members who
are leaving.


"I think what makes it even more of a strug-
gle is that we're all like a family," he said.
Kendall, Groom and Cordova said they
aren't looking to replace John Dunne, Daniel
Cummings, the keyboardist, or Stacie Cum-
mings, who plays the cello, tambourine and
sings. The three band members are moving on
after they graduate.
Daniel and Stacie Cummings were not at
the show. Jason Sanders, a friend of the band,
filled in on keyboard and tambourine.
As members of the crowd closed their eyes,
tapped their feet and moved their hips, the
sensation from the intimate lyrics pouringfrom
the stage grabbed hold.
"There is something really cool going on in
Gainesville, and we are a part of that," Kendall
said. "It's nice to feel welcomed into the music
scene."
Paxico via Mexico was more than just wel-
comed at the show. After the crowd repeatedly
chanted "one more song" Dunne picked up
an acoustic guitar and began to play Hallowed
Ground, a songfrom the newly released EP.
Fans can buy the EP at Paxico via Mex-
ico's next show or online at its website, paxi-
coviamexico.com.
Kendall said songs should be available on
iTunes and Pandora in a couple months.
Near the end of the show, Dunne thanked
the crowd and Gainesville for a good ride. Al-
though half of the band will be gone by sum-
mer, I have no doubt that Paxico via Mexico will
continue to captivate a crowd with its unique
groove and Folk Americana melodies.
"People feel whatwe do," Kendall said. "We
have a lot of really good friends and support-
ers."

Den Dekker bounces back to lead Gators as senior

UF center fielder Matt den Dekker leads the team with a .365 batting average and 20 stolen bases. The
senior is coming off a junior season in which he hit just .296 to go along with five home runs.


CAROLINA TONIGHT

Before the season, Matt den
Dekker did not discuss personal ac-
complishments.
He ignored talking about his
speed and penchant for the long
ball. Instead, the senior talked about
leaving UF atop the Southeastern
Conference.
Den Dekker and the rest of the
Gators (38-12, 20-7 SEC) will have
their chance tonight at 7 when No.
4 Florida travels to No. 6 South
Carolina (42-11, 20-7 SEC) for the
first game in what has become the
de facto conference regular-season
championship series.
"It would mean everything for
our careers, and we haven't gotten it
done," den Dekker said of finishing
in first place. "We set out at the be-
ginning of the year with some of our
team goals, and up first was to win
an SEC Championship."
But even without personal expec-
tations, den Dekker has been UF's


offensive leader. The senior paces
the team with a .365 average and 20
stolen bases. He is also second with
11 home runs, including three long
balls in the last five games.
His production at the plate is
much improved from last year,
when his batting average was about
70 points lower and he hit just five
homers. Den Dekker said those
struggles coincided with MLB Draft
expectations.
"I'm a little more relaxed this
year," he said. "Last year I was
pressing a little bit, I guess trying to
do too much, trying to make some
things happen. But I've learned a lot
in the last couple years and I'm glad
I came back."
College baseball players are not
eligible for the draft until their ju-
nior years. Players can also turn
pro instead of going to college, but
den Dekker went undrafted out of
Fort Lauderdale Westminster High
so last season was the first time he
received serious looks from MLB
teams.
"Any guy that gets draft eligible
has it in the back of their mind that
they got to produce," den Dekker
said. "It's a lesson I learned and

UF set to begin Regionals


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer
After three months and 51 games the
UF softball season is just beginning.
When a team starts the season as the
No. 3 squad in the nation and the two-time
defending Southeastern Conference cham-
pion, an opportunity to play in the NCAA
Tournament is almost assured.
What matters most is what it does with
that opportunity.
The No. 4 Gators (43-8) will begin their
quest for a national championship Friday
when they take on Bethune-Cookman (32-
22) at 6 p.m. in Katie Seashole Pressley
Stadium in the first game of an NCAA Re-
gional that also includes UCF (35-21) and
FIU (36-19).
This will mark the sixth consecutive
year the Gators have hosted an NCAA Re-
gional and the second time they have wel-
comed Bethune-Cookman and UCF, which
both played in the Gainesville Regional in
2005.
"Hosting is a huge advantage," senior
Francesca Enea said. "We're going to have
a ton of fan support, and even though the


other schools from Florida will have fans
too, the fact that it's the postseason brings
out support for us from the Gainesville
community."
Gainesville's all-Florida regional fea-
tures a pair of familiar foes, as the Gators
already clashed with both UCF and FIU
earlier in the season.

integrity is one of the key reasons we
all love sports.
It gives us something to believe in
and it takes us away from the corruption
we are exposed to in everyday life.
But sometimes integrity is lost.
There are constant murmurs about
teams tanking their seasons to get a top
pick in their respective league's draft, ef-
fectively killing sports' purity.
That's where the NBA Draft Lottery
comes in. A unique system in which
teams that miss the playoffs are bunched
together into an unpredictable process to
determine the draft order.
This means the worst team, while
owning the best chance at the first pick,
is not guaranteed the top selection like in
the NFL and MLB drafts.
As a matter of fact, the NBA's worst
team has only received the first pick four
times in the 26 years that the system has
been in place.

at winning the John Wall sweepstakes

However,
some people will
argue that there are some negatives to
this system.
1. Corruption: In its attempt to fight
against it, the NBA really leaves itself
vulnerable to corruption.
The actual drawing of the ping-pong
balls is done behind closed doors, which
means critics argue the NBA rigs it so big-

top picks.

Knights took a 3-1 lead into the seventh be-
fore Enea and freshman Brittany Schutte tied
the game with RBI hits to send it in to extra-
innings.
Schutte later blasted a home run to center to
give the Gators the 4-3 win in the team's only
nine-inning game.
If UCF's senior ace Ashleigh Cole can
match her complete-game performance from
the teams' first meeting, the Gators could be in
for another close contest.
But as tough of a matchup as that was, the
FIU contest went considerably worse for Flor-

"I think it's going to be a tough regional,"
Enea said. "Two of them we played this year

chances of competing with the big boys.
But that just isn't true.
In the last 40 years, 14 teams in both the NFL
and NBA have won titles, which shows the differ-
ent systems used to decide the draft order in each
league don't necessarily affect parity as much as
people think.
With those criticisms put to rest, I can't find
many more reasons to poke holes.
I will always support a system that keeps teams
competitive and creates some excitement for fans
of non-playoff teams during the postseason.
Now, let's take a page out of sports' book and
have some integrity and give the NBA some well-
deserved credit.

Looking for a different ring


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer

With one out in the bottom of
the seventh, her team trailing by
one and a national championship
on the line, then-junior Francesca
Enea stepped up to the plate and
did what she's done countless
times in her UF career -- she deliv-
ered.
Enea crushed a double down
the left-field line, but could then
only watch as the final two outs
were recorded and the Washing-
ton Huskies celebrated their 2009
NCAA championship, dashing
Florida's hopes of winning it all for
the first time in school history.
A title has been about the only
thing that has eluded Enea in her
time as a Gator.
The senior left fielder has set
eight Florida and Southeastern
Conference hitting records, spent
an entire season playing through
injury, led the team both vocally
and by example all year, directed
numerous community service proj-
ects and even accepted a marriage
proposal on the field.
Despite all that, there's still one
thing Enea hasn't done: win a na-
tional championship.
"Not many teams can say they
walked away with a national
championship under their belt,"
Enea said. "So many girls around
here or at other schools have bro-
ken records and that's great, but
being able to say that you won a
national championship with your
team would be irreplaceable."


Tough as nails
When Enea first set foot on
Florida's campus four years ago,
she had no idea her career could
blossom into what it has become
today.
The then-catcher described her-
self as just an average offensive
player -- certainly not someone
who would go on to set the SEC ca-
reer home run record with 61.
"I never thought I would be
much of a home-run hitter," Enea
said. "I thought maybe I got lucky
whenever I hit one out, so my suc-
cess the last couple years has kinda
surprised me."
Just looking at Enea's freshman
numbers, it would be pretty easy
to assume her assessment was ac-
curate.
During the 2007 season, in
which she played just 48 games
due to a knee injury, Enea hit a
meager .227 with only six home
runs and 22 RBIs.
While those numbers may have
been a detriment to her career sta-
tistics, the lessons she learned from
that down year have proven to be
invaluable.
"It just taught me that I can get
out pretty easily and that some-
times you won't be as successful
as you want to be, but you can't
let that factor into how well the
team is going to do," Enea said. "It
taught me to take each at-bat and
learn from it, to not get down when
I get out but instead learn from ev-
ery at-bat and every play and that's
what helped me the most."
Even once she put her freshman
season behind her and learned how

Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff
Senior Francesca Enea broke the UF career records for home runs
(61) and RBIs (220) during her time as a Gator along with accepting
a marriage proposal on the field.


to deal with her mistakes, Enea
continued to face adversity.
In the fall of 2008, she suffered
a tear on the same ACL that side-
lined her during a stretch of her
freshman campaign.
An injury of that nature would
typically lead to season-ending
surgery, but instead Enea chose
to tough it out, playing the entire
2009 season in pain.
She finished the year with 18
homers and a single-season record
70 RBIs while posting a .339 batting
average.
While Eneawasbattling through
injury and willing herself to one of
the greatest seasons in UF softball
history on just one knee, she still
felt sorry for the team more than
herself.
"I think it really affected the
team more than it affected me,"
Enea said. "I felt bad when I
couldn't get to balls in the outfield
and I couldn't make turns running
the bases. I just felt I couldn't be as
great for the team as I wanted to
be."
On the surface it appears that
the injury has healed and things
are back to normal, but there are
still numerous occasions where it
is obvious Enea will never be back
to 100 percent.
During a game on May 8 against
South Carolina, Enea spent nearly
a minute on the ground after tak-
ing what appeared to be a routine
swing, clearly experiencing consid-
erable pain.
"Unfortunately I've had knee
problems all through my life,"
Enea said. "As I'm getting older it's
getting harder to deal with but I'm
just trying to push myself through.
I'm just going through every day
taking care of business, seeing
whatever doctors I have to so that
I can finish the season and do well
in my future career."
Not surprisingly, Enea finished
the at-bat and is yet to miss a start
this season.

Been there, done that
When a player deals with as
much adversity as Enea has over
the years, it seems that leadership
comes naturally both on and off
the field.
In terms of Florida softball, Enea
offers a level of experience that
only fellow senior Corrie Brooks
can match, as they are the only two
players who have been through
both the ups of a trip to the Wom-
en's College World Series final and
the downs of a 22-loss season in
their freshman seasons.
While all of the team's sopho-
mores and juniors already under-
stand the importance of not putting
too much pressure on themselves
and just trying to have fun in big
games like those in the SEC and
NCAA Tournaments, only Enea
and Brooks can speak to the impor-
tance of bouncing back from losses
and keeping everything going in
the right direction.

"In the beginning of the season
Corrie and I talked to them and we
said, 'Listen, we aren't going to win
every game this year,'" Enea said.
"We told them that we're going to
lose a little bit more, and how suc-
cessful we can be is based on how
we bounce back from those losses.
"Now we aren't afraid to lose,
we just know what its like and
we're not gonna let that happen."
It is this hard-working, never-
quit attitude that has made Enea
not just the player she is today
but also the person she is today --
someone who has spent countless
hours giving back to the Gainesville
community.
Over her four years she has
organized the Swing for Can-
cer event, was the co-chair of the
Climb for Cancer Sport Camps and
was the catalyst behind the team's
"adoption" of a 13-year-old girl
with a brain tumor via the Friends
of Jacyln Foundation.
She has also been heavily in-
volved with CAMP Gator, Ga-
torTracks, Habitat for Humanity,
the Special Olympics, Miracles on
Main, and even squeezes in weekly
visits to Shands Hospital.
"I do all that just for the simple
fact that I can do it," Enea said.
"The University of Florida pro-
vides you with so many outlets to
get involved so why not take ad-
vantage of it?"

A dream come true
Although Enea will leave Flori-
da with the career records for home
runs (61), RBIs (220) and slugging
percentage (.646), the most memo-
rable moment of her career might
have nothing to do with softball.
In what can only be described
as one of the most remarkable Se-
nior Days in the history of UF ath-
letics, Enea experienced not only
the traditional festivities but also
a surprise marriage proposal that
left herself and everyone else in the
stadium in shock.
While Enea, her family and
coach Tim Walton posed for a pic-
ture alongside Enea's framed jersey
and bouquet of flowers, Christian

Bruey, a UF alumnus and Enea's
boyfriend of three years, sneaked
up behind the group and dropped
to a knee.
Enea, who quickly said yes, was
taken aback by the presence of Bru-
ey, who gave Enea the impression
he wouldn't be able to attend the
Senior Day celebration.
"He said he wasn't going to be
able to make it and I was giving
him crap about it for weeks and
saying he was going tobe in the dog
house if he didn't come on time,"
Enea said. "Then all of a sudden I
heard someone shout his name out
from the crowd and I looked and
saw him and he didn't waste any
time, he went right down on one
knee and I was just shocked."
Thanks to some clever planning
by Bruey, who first met Enea while
doing the radio broadcasts for
Gators softball during her fresh-
man year, only a small group of
people knew that such a plan was
in the works, least of all Enea.
And although the senior was
blindsided by Bruey's unexpected
proposal, it turns out the plan was
actually Enea's idea all along.
"I had a dream about it two
years ago," Enea said. "So I said
to him, 'Oh I had a dream that you
proposed to me on Senior Day,'
and he said 'Well that'll never hap-
pen because I'll never make enough
money for the ring you want.' So I
said 'Yeah you're probably right,'"
Enea was able to follow the
pregame theatrics with her SEC-
record-breaking 61st career home
run, but she is now only concerned
with putting the day behind her
and focusing on what is still left to
be accomplished.
"It was a great day and I don't
think I could stop smiling, but now
the day's over and I'm just trying
to move on and not get distracted
by it," Enea said.
Because with just three weeks
to go in her Florida softball career,
Enea and her teammates are hon-
ing in on the only thing that has
managed to elude them the last
three years -- a national champion-
ship.

Gators to face SEC foes again


Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff
UF sophomore Joanna Mather was moved to the No. 2 doubles team
with Lauren Embree April 9 at Tennessee and the duo is 7-0 since.


* BOTH TEAMS WILL BEGIN
PLAY IN THE ROUND OF 16.

By ANDREW OLSON
Alligator Writer

The Gators tennis teams
schedule top-ranked non-con-
ference opponents in the regular
season to prepare for the NCAA
Tournament. But in the round of
16 in Athens, Ga., both teams will
face a Southeastern Conference
opponent.
The No. 3 women's team (26-2)
takes on No. 17 Mississippi (17-5)
today at 9 a.m.
When the teams played in
Gainesville on March 28, UF won
easily 6-1. While the Rebels may
be looking forward to playing the
Gators on a neutral court, they
should know it's a court where
Florida has performed well. By
defeating Georgia on the road
and winning the SEC Tourna-
ment, the Gators are 4-0 this
season at the Dan Magill Tennis
Complex.
UF coach Roland Thornqvist
downplayed the Athens familiar-
ity factor in today's match.
"Having experience in Georgia


is not going to give us a 1-0 start
in the match," Thornqvist said.
What gives Florida an in-
creased chance of going up 1-0
is the change made in doubles
since the last time UF played
Mississippi. Sophomore Joanna
Mather, who battled a foot in-
jury earlier this season, recently
switched places with senior An-
astasia Revzina to play the No. 2
position with freshman Lauren
Embree.

switch because

efit from the switch.
"Lauren is probably the fastest
person I've played with," Mather
said.
If the speedy duo and the rest
of the Gators make it past the
Rebels, they could face another
familiar foe. Seven other op-
ponents Florida faced this dual-
match season are in the round of
16.


The No. 6 men's team (21-4)
will face a familiar opponent on
Friday at 6 p.m.: championship
host and SEC East rival No. 12
Georgia (19-7).
Florida defeated Georgia in
two previous meetings this sea-
son, most recently a 5-2 win in
Gainesville on April 11.
The Gators' other victory
against the Bulldogs came on a
neutral court, meaning UF has
not traveled to Athens, Ga. this
season.
Despite the revenge factor and
home court favoring Georgia, UF
coach Andy Jackson sees Florida
as one of the teams with a legiti-
mate chance to win it all.
"I don't know how many
teams have a chance but we're
one of the teams that have a
chance," Jackson said. "Regard-
less, we're going to be ready to
go Friday night."
If the Gators advance to the
Final Four, they might a get third
shot at No. 2 Tennessee (27-1).
Tennessee defeated Florida 4-3
on April 9 in Gainesville to win
the SEC regular-season title and
again in Lexington, Ky. on April

UF looks to win Regional for second straight season


By JAIME MANHEIMER
Alligator Writer

The Gators hope to repeat last season's
accomplishment when they travel to Indiana
Thursday.
Florida won the Southeast Regional in
2009 and hope to repeat this year by winning
the Central Regional.
To do it again, No. 6 UF will have to con-
quer The Warren Golf Course in Notre Dame,
Ind., Thursday.
"Last year we played pretty well (in re-
gionals), and I think it's going to happen


again," UF coach Buddy Alexander said.
In the four years Florida has won a na-
tional title, they have never won a regional in
that same year. But the team isn't focused on
the past.
"I don't think it matters if we win here,
it doesn't mean we are not going to win, we
haven't won that many Regionals before,"
said Alexander. "As long as we come in and
do our jobs, we'll be fine."
The Gators received the No. 2 seed in the
Regional. Third-ranked Stanford was given
the top seed and are one of nine teams that
are ranked in the top 50. Florida is a combined


8-5 against the ranked teams in the field.
"We just have to take care of business,"
Alexander said. "We hope
our game is in pretty good
form, and if we make smart
decisions, we should win."
Florida ended the sea-
son well, with two first-
place finishes and one sec-
Alexander ond-place finish and looks
strong going into Region-
als. All-SEC first-team senior Tyson Alexan-
der has been instrumental in many of UF's
successes this year.


Tyson recently won the first individual
title of his career in the second-to-last event
of the season, as he shot a career low (63) in
the first round of the BancorpSouth Intercol-
legiate, finishing the tournament at 11-under
par, one stroke off of his best tournament
score.
Last year at Regionals, Tyson had a solid
finish shooting four-over par and finished
tied for seventh place.
"As a whole we just need to keep our com-
posure," Alexander said. "If we stay focused
and continue to make smart decisions, I think
we will fare pretty well in Regionals."

Grad student still in hospital By KATHERINE BEIN Alligator Writer Kofi Adu-Brempong, the 35-year-old Ghanaian graduate student who was shot in the face by University Police in March, remains hospitalized and in stable condition, his sister-in-law Cynthia Agyemang said Wednesday. "His spirits are up," she said, "[he's] hopeful that things will turn around in his favor." Agyemang said the family is not anxiously awaiting the upcoming release of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's official report on the matter, but simply said, "We're at peace." "His spirits are up; [he's] hopeful that things will turn around in his favor." Cynthia Agyemang Adu-Brempong's sister-in-law On March 2, UPD officers responded to a worried neighbor's call who heard screaming from Adu-Brempong's on-campus Corry Village apartment, according to UPD reports. Police officers, along with a mental health professional, visited Adu-Brempong the day before the shooting and arrest because a professor from his college expressed concern for his mental stability. The officers concluded, however, that Adu-Brempong was not a danger to himself or others, the report stated. The night of the incident, Adu-Brempong would not allow police officers into his home. Officers were forced to talk to him SEE ADU-BREMPONG, PAGE 5 Investigation clears prof. 0 ROBERTS WAS ACCUSED OF SUPPORTING STUDENTS' HAITI TRIP. By MINCH MINCHIN Alligator Staff Writer UF has cleared professor Churchill Roberts of violating university policy by allowing two graduate students to return to Haiti to complete a video project. According to a statement released Wednesday by members of UF's human resources department, the investigation, which was intended to determine whether Roberts "authorized or facilitated" use of university funds for the trip, concluded Roberts did nothing wrong. Roberts, who specializes in video journalism, is the thesis adviser for Jonathan Bougher and Roman Safuillin, graduate students in the College of Journalism and Communications. Bougher and Safuillin were working on a film project in Haiti for their master's-degree project before the earthquake struck in January. In the weeks following the earthquake, UF implemented a safety policy that banned any university funding from being used to sponsor trips to Haiti. On According to the report, RobCampuS erts knew his students were going to return to Haiti to finish their project, but said he did not feel it was his responsibility to prevent them from going provided they did not use UF funds. The nearly 12-week investigation confirmed that Bougher and Safuillin funded their trip with private donations from people interested in their work. 10 Re e: THURSDAY, MAY 20, 2010 CITY ELECTION ISSUES Marsh supporters take results to court By JOEY FLECHAS Alligator Writer Although Gainesville's mayoral election took place 65 days ago and the runoff was 37 days ago, two locals have gone to court saying more voting needs to be done because Craig Lowe might not be the winner. Mason Alley and Phil Courson, supporters of second-place finisher Don Marsh, are hoping to prove the city needs a special election because of uncertainty about the voter registration of 44 voters. Sarah Rumpf, attorney for Alley and Courson, said she has evidence to suspect there are people who voted in the election who live and work in other counties, states and countries. After producing a list of the 44 people in court Tuesday, Rumpf motioned to file an amended comMarsh plaint stating the solution would be to hold a new election because it cannot be determined for whom those 44 people voted.

4, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 20, 2010 Outgoing mayor shares proudest moments in office Hanrahan served hometown for 6 years By ANDREW PANTAZI Alligator Contributing Writer It's like a graduation. She's sad about some things -her friendships and experiences -but she's glad to be starting a new phase, Pegeen Hanrahan said. She's moving out of the mayor's office today. "With a job like being the mayor of your hometown, there are obviously a tremendous number of challenges and opportunities," Hanrahan said Wednesday night. "There have been some really wonderful and uplifting circumstances." "It's especially moving to me when it's a regular person, not someone with an interest with the city or a cog in the city machine." Pegeen Hanrahan outgoing Gainesville mayor One such circumstance happens when citizens recognize Hanrahan, and they commend her for her job, she said. "It's especially moving to me when it's a regular person, not someone with an interest with the city or a cog in the city machine," Hanrahan said. During her six-year tenure in office, Hanrahan has done a lot of good, said Hanan Clarke, a 60-year-old who has been in Gainesville for 40 years and voted for Hanrahan in both of her mayoral elections. "She's done a lot of great things," said Clarke. "I'd like to see her stay involved." One of the highlights of Hanraban's service was being selected by the White House to represent Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff Left: Outgoing Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan carries her daughter, Evyleen, at a rally that included a speech by Vice President Joe Biden during the 2008 presidential election campaign. Right: Mayorelect Craig Lowe takes office today. how American cities are promoting sustainability. Additionally, Hanrahan spoke at the Copenhagen Climate Conference last December. "Gainesville was used as an example of what cities are doing right by the White House," Hanrahan said. Also under Hanrahan's watch, Gainesville Regional Utilities was named Energy Star's partner of the year. "Those are the kinds of thing that make you feel like it's wellspent time when you're poring over a development plan at 10:30 at night and you want to go home," she said. Hanrahan, a Gainesville-native with four degrees from UF, isn't looking to leave her hometown. "The children are really excited I'll be home," she said. "My husband is more than excited because he has carried the burden of having two small children while I'm out until 9, 10, 11 o'clock two or three nights a week and traveling 20 days a year, if not more." But Hanrahan has not ruled out future public service. She is keeping her eyes on Florida's November elections, which might open opportunities for her, she said. Attorney for mayor-elect Lowe requested that the case be dismissed MAYOR, from page 1 As evidence to support her claims, Rumpf pointed out one of the 44 voters used the address of Salty Dog Saloon as his or her place of residence. "We ask that the election results be set aside, and that the voter rolls be cleaned of these questionable voters," Alley said. Alley noted the issue was important because of the narrow election results. In the runoff election April 13, Craig Lowe defeated Don Marsh by 42 votes. "We're dealing with this because of the margin of victory," he said. "I have nothing personal against Commissioner Lowe." Alachua County Circuit Judge Victor L. Hulslander will make a decision on how the case will move forward, if at all. Cherie Fine, Lowe's attorney, motioned that the case be thrown out. Unless the judge orders otherwise, "We're dealing with* of the margin of vi( nothing personal aga sioner Low Lowe is scheduled to be s today.

THURSDAY, MAY 20, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Senators join Progress Party Three left Student Alliance By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN Alligator Writer Three senators representing the Student Alliance party announced their new affiliation with the Progress Party after voicing their dissatisfaction with the policies of their former party. Student Alliance party Sen. Alan Martin, who represents graduate students; Jose Soto, a summer replacement senator who represents graduate students; and Tim Johnson, a replacement senator for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, cited campaign tactics and internal politics as their reasons for switching their party affiliation. Martin said statements made by Student Alliance party members led him to believe the Student Alliance party was responsible for swastika fliers distributed across campus in February before the Student Government election. Martin also said he was led to believe Student Alliance party Sen. Graham Clark was chosen by the party to appear on the ballot because he threatened to turn the party website into a pornographic website. "I can't prove any of this," Martin said. "It is possible given everything I heard that there is a more innocent explanation. I just felt like I had to do something." Student Alliance party Senate leader Jonathan Student Ossip said any Government statements Martin overheard were meant as sarcastic jokes. He denies the Student Alliance party had anything to do with the fliers or slated anyone who was undeserving. The Student Alliance party, which was formed when the Progress Party and the Orange and Blue Party merged, is not splitting apart, Ossip said. Unite Party Sen. Ben Meyers, who represents the agricultural college, said his party has always worked well with the Progress Party. "We are definitely looking forward to working with Progress," he said. "All of our senators are obviously on board with our policy and fighting for students' rights, which is what we're here for," Ossip said. Former Progress Party Sen. Dave Schneider said there are no definite plans to re-launch the Progress Party or put it on the SG ballot for the fall. "We're still taking it one step at a time," Schneider said. During the meeting, senators also unanimously passed a resolution calling for the continued cleanup of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and for more safety regulations that would prevent such a spill in the future. Two additional agency directors were unanimously approved in the Senate. Andrew Fagin will be the new Student Government Productions director and Sara Makda will be the new director of Students Taking Action Against Racism.

Fearing that Adu-Brempong had done something to harm himself, officers forced their way into the apartment. When Adu-Brempong approached the officers, they fired two Tasers, which failed to connect, three rounds of bean-bag shots, which failed to subdue him, and two shots from an automatic rifle, the report stated. Adu-Brempong, who suffered from polio as a child, was rushed to Shands at UF where he was placed under a false name and treated for his injuries. His condition is no longer critical, although he has lost part of his jaw and tongue. He is currently charged with one count of second-degree aggravated assault and one count of third-degree resisting arrest with violence, according to Alligator archives. Since the shooting, three protests have been held on campus. The protesters have demanded, among other things, that the shooting officer, Keith Smith, be terminated and that all charges against Adu-Brempong be dropped. The FDLE and UF have both conducted their own investigations on the case. The FDLE report was completed in April and was turned over to the State Attorney's Office for consideration.

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 20, 2010 Pricey Party Democrats spend $800,000 on victory ast night, Democrats celebrated their victory in a special election for an empty seat in Pennsylvania's 12th Congressional District. We just wonder if having another Democrat on Capitol Hill was worth the $800,000 the party spent on advertising. The winner, Mark Critz, was a long-time fixture under Rep. John Murtha who left the seat vacant when he died in February. Murtha, although a Democrat, ran on a prolife and pro-gun platform; he was even given an "A" from the National Rifle Association for his voting record. Like Murtha, Critz is also pro-life and pro-gun. The GOP candidate would not have been any different. Murtha was hesitant to vote on health care reform without the Stupak-Pitts Amendment, which forbade federal money being used to pay for any health care plan that would cover an abortion. Critz has never held elected office, so we don't have the luxury of knowing if he will vote the same way as his predecessor. But we are guessing this lackey-turned-Representative will not have the temerity to stray too far from Murtha's formula. After all, the guy had a 36-year career in Washington. What is the point in celebrating? The Democrats spent more than $800,000 on a campaign and have little to show for it. All those color-coded seating charts can stay the same, but Critz is blue in name only. The last time we checked that doesn't mean a thing. Power Struggle The war between the states, or between one state and a growing list of cities, is starting to get heated. Los Angeles decided to hop on the bandwagon and boycott official travel to Arizona because of the state's controversial immigration law, which allows police to demand identification from anyone it suspects is in the country illegally. Arizona's response: turn off LA's power. The sprawling California city gets a sizable chunk of its power from Arizona, and if the state follows through with its threat it could end up being a long, hot summer for people living in the city. We think the immigration law is little more than legally sanctioned racial profiling, but we are not so naive to think Arizona would ignore threats to its tourism economy. What bothers us is that Arizona officials seem more willing to dig their heels into the ground and fight back than consider listening to the public outcry against the law. Boycotting travel punishes people for simply living in a state, and threatening to cut power for millions certainly will not make Arizona a popular tourist destination. In fact, it sidesteps the problem all together. If Arizona really wanted to help, it might try to assuage fears that visitors will be harassed by police for looking Hispanic once they step off a plane. This back-and-forth debate amounts to nothing more than a game of tit-fortat that punishes the wrong people. It needs to stop before everyone is left in the dark. a l l e independent fo rida Rachael Pino EDITOR Paul Runnestrand Stefania Ferro MANAGING EDITORS Drew Wilson OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must include the author's name, classification and phone number Names wiii be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105 W University Aye or send them to P0 Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

(W--D C 'z Communism's return possible in U.S. homas Jefferson once said, "All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent." I had a very insightful lunch the other day with a highranking official of the George W. Bush administration. He told me the specific policy details of Ronald Reagan's use of capitalism and freedom to undermine Soviet rule are still classified and not generally known. Reagan's maneuvers helped those under Soviet dominance to recognize the bonds of government and break free. It seems unlikely that the media and the current administration will ever publicize this part of history. Yet the proof is not hidden, just forgotten. Consider Pope John Paul II's speech in Poland to a crowd of 3 million that helped spark the citizen revolt against Communism. Or consider the numerous Russian scholars who admit the communist bloc fell because the government spent the Kremlin's last ruble. With the fall of Communism came the beginning of the decline of the old-world political elite, those with the state of mind that stemmed from monarchies and autocracies. Through the 20th century, Communist leaders fronting so-called "people's movements" kept this idea alive as they ruled with an air of entitlement to the country's resources and to the citizens they oppressed. These were the leaders of the Cold War who fought so strongly against capitalism because they knew it meant a severe blow to their power. Now we see a similarly elitist mind-set exhibited by some top Democrats. Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Frank and many others conduct themselves with a defeatist attitude toward the American individual in the form of seeding dependency-increasing entitlement programs. They are amassing and centralizing power by taking over some of the largest private sectors of American Bryan Griffin business (the car industry, health Speaking Out care, etc.). They continue to reward cronies, supporters and unions with various government advantages. They are perpetuating the elitist mind-set using socialist-style programs. Well, this is America, and socialism should be completely off the table. That conversation is over, and no modern politician should even permit it to be mentioned. If you have read my columns before, you know I am a firm believer in personal freedom and the power of the free market to accomplish objectives over government mandate. After discussing the long conquest of Communism by freedom and capitalism, my friend and I began to discuss the ramifications of letting our government continue to amass and centralize power. The American people will have a choice to make in 2012-a serious, life-altering choice that will decide the future and fate of our country. It is at this crossroads that we can choose to quash the power trip of our government officials. We can choose to be a country of individual freedom that can provide free-market means with limited government support to aid our fellow citizens in need. Our choice will be simple and clear: We either move into a golden age of personal freedom or continue to enable elitist political tendencies. America can take heart. The first step down the path of personal freedom is taken with the inalienable power each citizen holds to vote. The best part about it is that the choice is ours, and it is a simple one to make. However, we better not put it off any longer because we have spent our last dollar-about 12 trillion times. Bryan Griffin is afirst-year law student. His columns appear Thursdays.

Three-time graduate offers advice for the summer student As a three-time UF graduate, I have 10 summer semesters under my belt. Next to fall, it is my favorite time in Gainesville because it has many benefits over the regular season. One significant advantage is much less traffic on campus and a generally slower pace getting around. The alert student can take advantage of the fact that everyone is too hot to move very fast. You must always wear sunglasses. Another is that most professors don't want to be there, so some of them will cut you slack -but don't count on it. My worst mistake was taking differential equations during Summer B. Keep the workload light, you deserve it. And because Gainesville is so stinking hot, frequent trips to the springs or the beach are that much more fun. Just remember to treat the locals with respect because -regardless of your state of mind -you are a Gator. Summer lets you burn the candle at both ends and have too much fun with less at stake. It's excellent preparation for the fall, when you will have many opportunities to get your butt in a sling big time. Just don't forget the sunglasses.

These tales also serve a valuable purpose: They inspire humanity to achieve greatness. Whether the Alligator Editorial Board collectively enjoys them is irrelevant.

8, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 20, 2010 UPD collects about 400 abandoned bikes in spring 0 UPD REMOVES 750 TO 1,000 BIKES EACH YEAR. KRISTEN BOWE and RAVEN PRITCHETT Alligator Contributing Writers Studentswalking around campus may wonder about the colored slips of paper on abandoned bicycles. They're auction slips from UPD that give the owner five days'notice before the bike is broken from its lock and auctioned. Jean-Tui Popenoe, a mechanic for Student Government Bike Repair, said the bike collection is an opportunity for UPD to raise money and help keep the campus clean. "These are the bikes people don't ride," he said. "Those who actually care about their bike wouldn't leave it in an abandoned state." According to UPD spokesman Jeff Holcomb, officers put tags on abandoned bicycles about four times a year. The notices give owners five days to either relocate their bikes or remove the tags. If the tag is removed, police cannot confiscate the bike by law, Holcomb said, which keeps the bikes on campus. UPD removes about 750 to 1,000 bicycles each year, despite efforts to contact students who have registered bicycles, Holcomb said. At the end of the spring semester, UPD removed 393 abandoned bicycles from the campus. On If five days pass Campus and the tags remain, UPD takes the bikes to the UF surplus unit to be auctioned off in groups of seven. According to Holcomb, students have 30 days to reclaim their bicycles from the Surplus Warehouse before an Internet auction. About 8 to 10 percent of the bikes are reclaimed. Unclaimed bikes must go to the warehouse because under state law it is illegal to donate the bicycles to charity. Although some of the bikes that arrive in the warehouse are rusted and in need of repair, the bikes sell at a group rate for prices ranging from $40 to $140, according to David Dykes, property manager for Asset Management Services. "We keep auctioning the bikes until a profit is made," Dykes said. Profits pay for the removal of the bikes and for the the Internet auction. The remainder sponsors a UF scholarship fund, Dykes said. Local bike shop owner Ted Kubisek said his shop, Spin Cycle, doesn't buy any of the bikes from the auction but does repairs for customers who purchased their bikes from the auction. "Most of the bikes are department store bikes that are deteriorated. A nice bike is not deserted," Kubisek said. Most of the people who buy deserted bikes use them for recreational purposes, he said.

Page 12 Gatorade ad s By ALEX ORLANDO avenue writer "If you want a revolution, the only solution: evolve, gotta evolve." And if you want the words to that song out of your head, I suggest you do the same. Anyone who has seen, or even heard the new Gatorade commercial, featuring Kevin Quinn's song "Evolve," knows what I'm talking about. It's just so damn catchy. Ever since it jingled its way through my eardrums, it's all I think about. I'll catch myself singing it in the car, in the shower, in class and even on the can. But, in all seriousness, when was the last time anyone heard a jingle on TV? Companies seem so concerned nowadays with completely irrelevant gimmicks and characters thatthey draw attention away from the product. Certain insurance-pushing geckos, offended cavemen and unemployed ducks come to mind right about now. So, to alleviate my curiosity, I called into Gatorade to see what gave the company erves purpose the nerve to commission such subliminal weaponry. Unfortunately, the representative couldn't give me any information. Apparently, she was too busy trying to get the song out of her head, too. But really, not since Oscar Meyer have we heard such charisma for a food product. It gets you thinking, maybe he does have a way with b-o-l-o-g-n-a. And maybe to have a revolution, we do need a solution of sugar, water and electrolytes. And you, too, can evolve past grape drink. But maybe it does help. Maybe we're straying away from the irrelevant, dry humor presented to us between 15-minute stretches of SportsCenter. Maybe we're getting back to the days of advertising when the ad actually has something to do with the product it's selling. Watch out, advertising majors. Your quirky, pseudo-creative ads are a dying breed. I just wonder what they'll think of next. How about a jingle for steroids?

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 20, 2010 Drink to American craft beer By RICHARD STEHLI avenue writer Frost your glasses and grab your bottle opener because this is American Craft Beer Week. Let's take a few minutes and give thanks for the goodness of craft beer in the USA. You might think this country is soaked in cheap, flavorless beer, but be thankful you weren't around in the '70s. In the spirit of a shiny, new national culture, low price and homogeneitytook precedence over beer quality in a big way. There were less operating brewers and breweries in America than at any other time in history, and the vast majority of beer was bland, to say the very least. At one point, supermarkets carried generic "Beer," a drink so terrible no company even put its name on the can. Eventually, forces converged to propel us out of the craft beer stone age and into the sort of fine "beerscape" we see today. Students started traveling and studying abroad. After drinking in Belgium or Germany, coming home to a relative wasteland of beverages was not acceptable. Also, the late beer guru Michael Jackson (not that one), better known as "The Beer Hunter," published his first book in 1977, "The World Guide to Beer." The book became a best seller and influenced millions at home and abroad to put down that bland light beer and pick up something a little better. Perhaps most importantly, then 28-year-old Fritz Maytag bought the ailing Anchor Brewing Company in San Francisco. After years of revamping the recipe and brewery and doing everything from bottling to making deliveries, Maytag turned the company around and profited. Once people saw that it was possible to make great tasting beer and make money doing it, the floodgates opened, and craft brewing was reborn. Since then, craft brewing has taken the country and the world by storm. Hops have been elevated from an additive to the star of the show. Famous Old-World styles have been reproduced and improved with American brewers at the helm. It was like a new American manifest destiny, exploring and conquering the unknown to its limits with a mix of skill and spirit. So raise a glass to all those that came before us, whether brewery owners, brewers, critics or simply the man on the street demanding something that tastes better. Our forerunners have done well for us, and the limitless choices of great beer available all over this country is one thing our parents' generation won't have to apologize for. Come celebrate American Craft Beer Week at Stubbies & Steins tonight from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. for $1 off all American craft beers and a chance to meet the guys from Gainesville's own Swamp Head Brewery. If you can't make it to the event, don't sweat it -just grab the best tasting beer you can find. Crush, lust or love? By JON SILMAN avenue editor She was working at a computer next to me the first time I saw her, and the glowing monitor made her face shine a little bit. She stood up, ignored me and I took the time to get a good look at her. She wasn't tall, but her hair was longand wispy. She had a smile and laugh that carried through the room. I shook her hand when I introduced myself hoping she wouldn't notice I couldn't catch my breath. That was a crush. We would stroll and talk through scenic paths, drinking coffee and harboring a growing sense of, "I want your body-ism." We took a trip in the sun for work and at some point had developed an easy rapport that was fun to fall back on. It was a careful rhythm barred only by the fact I was in a tumultuously fragile relationship. She got drunk and confessed herself to me in casual tears. I held her close for the first time, and for the first time I felt a possibility of sex. My blood boiled. That was lust. The two of us raged, fought and slept for days. She had to leave town. I had to make a decision. I decided totryand make it work. We were making a late-night dinner in the dim glow of her mother's granite kitchen, and I realized that no one had ever made me laugh so much. Living without this woman would not be living at all. Her shape and presence were so strong and her eyes so soft. I had to stop and take stock of what I had found. I was following her up the stairs admiring her, and I realized forthe first time in my life I had something to lose. That was when I fell in love with her. We meet people. We like them, and sometimes we think we love them. But it can be difficult to differentiate the difference. It can only help if you try.

Vincere' tells tale of fascism, Mussolini's lost romance FILM OPENS FRIDAY AT THE HIPP. By BRITT PERKINS avenue writer If there is one gleaming message in the desolate heart-pullerthat is "Vincere," it'sthis: marry a fascist and expect to get screwed. Vincere is Italian for "win," and that's pretty much the opposite of what happens to the supposed first wife of Benito Mussolini, Ida Dalser (Giovanno Mezzogiorno). She sells all her possessions to help fund Mussolini's first newspaper, and in the process inadvertently helps the rise of fascism. As any torrid love affair should become, things get hot really quick. However, as anyone dating a future dictator should expect, there are obligatory "red flags," so to speak. In a particularly intense scene, Mussolini (Filippo Timi) is fleeing police with a massive, bleeding head wound. Any normal woman would probably not find this particularly sexy, but Dalser takes advantage of the opportunity to sneak in a quick makeout sesh. Aroused by his political passions and activism in the Socialist party, Dalser supported Mussolini financially and even gave birth to their son in 1915. Mussolini eventually found his true calling during World War I, and like any good man who elevates his position in life, leaves Dalser in the dust. Dalser, being the type of woman who gets turned on by head wounds, never gets over it. Mussolini was a stone cold killer and wasn't having any of that, so he put her in a psychiatric hospital where she eventually died. Oh, and little Benito died in an insane asylum as well at age 26. Spliced into the melodrama of the film are historical clips of Mussolini in all his tyrant-like glory. A stark reminder of the harshness and dark reality of the man and his era. Juxtaposed against the raids and bombings are the intense emotions and passions the two actors at first convey, then lose. It is a tragic tale of love found and lost, but a convincing one. Though heart-wrenching at times, the film deals with broad and intense subject matter in a way that punches you in the gut and still leaves you wanting more. "Vincere" has been making the rounds and winning awards, as well. It took Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and Best Cinematography at the Chicago International Film Festival. So if you're lookingfor something light and fluffy, this particular film may not be your cup of tea. But if you want to be challenged by an unconventional love story that makes you think, by all means have a drink. "Vincere" opens at the Hippodrome State Theatre downtown Friday with two showings at 6:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. The film runs until May 27. For more movie times visit thehipp.org/cinema/.

12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 20, 2010 Gainesville Comedy Showcase takes on area's bar scene Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff Comedian Brock Savage performs his stand-up comedy routine at XS on Monday night. By DREW WILSON opinions editor "I drive a Honda Fit, which is ironic," Chris Cope said. A rotund 7-year stand-up veteran, Cope was one of the eight comedians who performed at XS on Monday night. The dance floor, which is usually empty on Mondays, is converted to a comedy club each week so Cope and a revolving lineup of fellow Gainesville Comedy Showcase comedians can perform. Besides putting out tables and chairs, the bar staff worked the crowd, taking drink orders so people could pay attention to the show rather than walk to the bar for a refill. One of the bartenders, Eric Buskirk, said he has been coming to the showcase shows for nearly four years. He even volunteers to come in on his day off to work the XS performance. He makes it a point to laugh or cheer to rile up the crowd whenever he finds something funny. "Laughter is infectious," Buskirk said. "I'm just trying to do my part." The show was scheduled to start at 10:30 p.m. but it took a few minutes for the 40-person crowd to settle down with drinks in hand. The comedians performed about 10 minutes of material each. But Calvin Cole, a featured comedian, took the stage for around 20 minutes and Cope, as the headliner, rounded out the show with a halfhour set. "Life is all about enjoying yourself while touching other people," Cole said. Cole, a 22-year-old UF graduate, has been doing stand-up comedy for about three years and is representing UF on the University Standup Comedy Club national team ("U SUCC," as its members call it) for his second year running. The fourperson squad competes against teams from other schools in what Cole describes as an "NCAA tournament head-to-head fashion." Crowd voting decides who advances in the competition, he said, and lastyearthe UFteam made itto the final stop in Aspen, Colo., before it went out in third place. Cole is optimistic about the team's chances to go all the way this year, though. "We're up against Duke right now," he said. "And we're definitely going to beat them." The laughs were sparse at times, but they were never hard to come by for Cole and the other comedians, some of who perform up to four nights a week in the Gainesville area. It's only the second week Gainesville Comedy Showcase has performed at XS, but the show's MC, Dave Johnson, sees the Monday night show as the happy medium among the troupe's other shows, which he said range from come-as-you-are to an almost professional level. Johnson describes Gainesville Comedy Showcase's Friday night show at the Clarion Lounge as the show to see for people looking for a professional comedy show in the area. Typically fewer comedians are put on the roster, and they are usually granted more stage time. It is a far departure from the Thursday night shows at the Clarion Lounge and the Tuesday night shows at 1982, which have an amateur theme. In order to get on the lineup for one of those shows, aspiring comics just need to make the other comedians laugh. "It really all hinges on what they show us at the Sunday workshops," Johnson said, "The '82 show is pretty much the closest thing to an open mic in Gainesville." Tuesday and Thursday are not without their benefits. According to Cole, those shows are when he and some of the other comedians try out their new material. "There are a lot of regulars at 1982," he said. "They're there every week, and I like to reward them with new material whenever I can." Johnson said GCS plans to put on a show at XS every Monday at 10:30 p.m. in addition to the group's other weekly shows at 1982 on Tuesdays at 9:45 p.m. and at the Clarion Lounge on Thursdays and Fridays at 9:15 pm. i THURSDAY, MAY 20, 201 0*ALLIGATOR, 13 Paxico via Mexico debuts EP, discusses band's future By ERIN RAUCH avenue writer There were no maracas in Paxico via Mexico's set on Saturday. None of the band members were wearing sombreros. But a young woman in the crowd eager to find a Hispanic beat shook her empty, plastic beer cup with so much purpose and enthusiasm I wondered if she thoughtshe was actually holding the gourd-shaped rattle. Looking around I noticed the Atlantic's crowd was drifting into a trance. Two girls to my left were moving slowly and touching their hips slightly, making sure not to spill a drop of their cranberry-vodka drinks. A boy wearing a backward plaid baseball cap swayed and sang along with his eyes closed. All the while, Paxico via Mexico, a local Gainesville band, sang lyrics swathed in quiet emotion with undertones of folk and rock. Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff Paxico via Mexico performs from the band's new EP, "Under the Mountain," Saturday night at The Atlantic. Ricky Kendall, the lead singer, said it took around two weeks to finish the band's second EP, "Under the Mountain," which the band debuted atthe show. He said the band sold about 60 EPs that night. Jared Groom, the band's animated drummer, sang along to every song even though he had no microphone. "I'm a pocket drummer," he said. "I like to groove a lot." Two years ago, the band played its first show as Ricky Kendall and the Spooky Divide. The original idea was to change the name of the band for every show. Instead, fans voted on 120 names the band posted on its Facebook page. While in a Mexican restaurant, the band downsized the list fans had voted on. It came down to "The Paxico Kids," but the band was not satisfied. John Dunne, lead vocalist and guitarist, is from Kansas, where Paxico is a city. Thus, Paxico via Mexico was born. Three hours before they went on stage the band members and friends went to their favorite bar in downtown Gainesville, Alcove. Bass player Tony Cordova drank a Lagunitas Hairy Eyeball, a seasonal malt ale, and we talked about upcoming events for Paxico via Mexico. Kendall said the band hope to release its firstfull-length album in August. Band members have been able to produce the album thanks to donations from fans and friends. Kendall said in less than three months they raised $943. Although three of the six members will no longer play in the band, fans will still hear them on the album. Groom said he will miss the members who are leaving. "I think what makes it even more of a struggle is that we're all like a family," he said. Kendall, Groom and Cordova said they aren't looking to replace John Dunne, Daniel Cummings, the keyboardist, or Stacie Cummings, who plays the cello, tambourine and sings. The three band members are moving on after they graduate. Daniel and Stacie Cummings were not at the show. Jason Sanders, a friend of the band, filled in on keyboard and tambourine. As members of the crowd closed their eyes, tapped their feet and moved their hips, the sensation from the intimate lyrics pouringfrom the stage grabbed hold. "There is something really cool going on in Gainesville, and we are a part of that," Kendall said. "It's nice to feel welcomed into the music scene." Paxico via Mexico was more than just welcomed at the show. After the crowd repeatedly chanted "one more song" Dunne picked up an acoustic guitar and began to play Hallowed Ground, a songfrom the newly released EP. Fans can buy the EP at Paxico via Mexico's next show or online at its website, paxicoviamexico.com. Kendall said songs should be available on iTunes and Pandora in a couple months. Near the end of the show, Dunne thanked the crowd and Gainesville for a good ride. Although half of the band will be gone by summer, I have no doubt that Paxico via Mexico will continue to captivate a crowd with its unique groove and Folk Americana melodies. "People feel what we do," Kendall said. "We have a lot of really good friends and supporters."

Sports THURSDAY, MAY 20, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Den Dekker bounces back to lead Gators as senior U NO. 4 UF TAKES ON NO. 6 SOUTH AT 7. F% "" A 4 UF center fielder Matt den Dekker leads the team with a .365 batting average and 20 stolen bases. The senior is coming off a junior season in which he hit just .296 to go along with five home runs. CAROLINA TONIGHT By TYLER JETT Alligator Writer tjett@alligator org Before the season, Matt den Dekker did not discuss personal accomplishments. He ignored talking about his speed and penchant for the long ball. Instead, the senior talked about leaving UF atop the Southeastern Conference. Den Dekker and the rest of the Gators (38-12, 20-7 SEC) will have their chance tonight at 7 when No. 4 Florida travels to No. 6 South Carolina (42-11, 20-7 SEC) for the first game in what has become the de facto conference regular-season championship series. "It would mean everything for our careers, and we haven't gotten it done," den Dekker said of finishing in first place. "We set out at the beginning of the year with some of our team goals, and up first was to win an SEC Championship." But evenwithout personal expectations, den Dekker has been UF's offensive leader. The senior paces the team with a .365 average and 20 stolen bases. He is also second with 11 home runs, including three long balls in the last five games. His production at the plate is much improved from last year, when his batting average was about 70 points lower and he hit just five homers. Den Dekker said those struggles coincided with MLB Draft expectations. "I'm a little more relaxed this year," he said. "Last year I was pressing a little bit, I guess trying to do too much, trying to make some things happen. But I've learned a lot in the last couple years and I'm glad I came back." College baseball players are not eligible for the draft until their junior years. Players can also turn pro instead of going to college, but den Dekker went undrafted out of Fort Lauderdale Westminster High so last season was the first time he received serious looks from MLB teams. "Any guy that gets draft eligible has it in the back of their mind that they got to produce," den Dekker said. "It's a lesson I learned and SEE BASEBALL, PAGE 21 UF SOFTBALL UF set to begin Regionals By GREG LUCA Alligator Writer After three months and 51 games the UF softball season is just beginning. When a team starts the season as the No. 3 squad in the nation and the two-time defending Southeastern Conference champion, an opportunity to play in the NCAA Tournament is almost assured. What matters most is what it does with that opportunity. The No. 4 Gators (43-8) will begin their quest for a national championship Friday when they take on Bethune-Cookman (3222) at 6 p.m. in Katie Seashole Pressley Stadium in the first game of an NCAA Regional that also includes UCF (35-21) and FIU (36-19). This will mark the sixth consecutive year the Gators have hosted an NCAA Regional and the second time they have welcomed Bethune-Cookman and UCF, which both played in the Gainesville Regional in 2005. "Hosting is a huge advantage," senior Francesca Enea said. "We're going to have a ton of fan support, and even though the other schools from Florida will have fans too, the fact that it's the postseason brings out support for us from the Gainesville community." Gainesville's all-Florida regional features a pair of familiar foes, as the Gators already clashed with both UCF and FIU earlier in the season. "Hosting is a huge advantage. We're going to have a ton of fan support, and even though the other schools from Florida will have fans too the fact that it's the postseason brings out support for us from the Gainesville community." Francesca Enea UF senior UF's March 31 showdown against UCF in Orlando turned out to be one of the most dramatic games of the season, as the SEE SOFTBALL, PAGE 21 Draft lottery good for NBA ntegrity is one of the key reasons we all love sports. It gives us something to believe in and it takes us away from the corruption we are exposed to in everyday life. But sometimes integrity is lost. There are constant murmurs about teams tanking their seasons to get a top pick in their respective league's draft, effectively killing sports' purity. That's where the NBA Draft Lottery comes in. A unique system in which teams that miss the playoffs are bunched together into an unpredictable process to determine the draft order. This means the worst team, while owning the best chance at the first pick, is not guaranteed the top selection like in the NFL and MLB drafts. As a matter of fact, the NBA's worst team has only received the first pick four times in the 26 years that the system has been in place. The New Jersey Nets had the best shot at winning the John Wall sweepstakes this season after finishing with the fourth-worst ree cord in NBA history at 12-70, but still only managed to come awaywith Anthony Chiang the third overall Chiang Reaction selection in this achia ng@alligator org year's draft. However, some people will argue that there are some negatives to this system. 1. Corruption: In its attempt to fight against it, the NBA really leaves itself vulnerable to corruption. The actual drawing of the ping-pong balls is done behind closed doors, which means critics argue the NBA rigs it so bigmarket teams have a better chance to get top picks.

Gators coming off 9-1 loss to LSU THURSDAY, MAY 20, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 21 SOFTBALL, from page 20 Knights took a 3-1 lead into the seventh before Enea and freshman Brittany Schutte tied the game with RBI hits to send it in to extrainnings. Schutte later blasted a home run to center to give the Gators the 4-3 win in the team's only nine-inning game. If UCF's senior ace Ashleigh Cole can match her complete-game performance from the teams' first meeting, the Gators could be in for another close contest. But as tough of a matchup as that was, the FlU contest went considerably worse for Florida. In the first game of what was scheduled to be a doubleheader, the Golden Panthers pounded out 11 hits in an 8-3 victory April 20 in Gainesville. "I think it's going to be a tough regional," Enea said. "Two of them we played this year and with UCF we played tight and Fill ran over us." It also appears that UF is catching each of these teams during relative hot streaks, as FIU has won 11 of its last 15, UCF has won eight of ANTHONY, from page 20 Celtics, the four biggest NBA markets in my opinion, have only won the lottery a combined three times. So that rules this conspiracy theory out. 2. Unbalanced: When teams such as the Philadelphia 76ers, the 20th worst team in the NBA in 1986, win the lottery, that isn't always good for the league. The pros that come along with the NFL and MLB systems is that it's stable and consistent. The worst team will pick first, while the best team will pick last.

Regardless of how these teams have played recently, the Gators know they will get the best their opposition has to offer any time they take on an in-state opponent. "Florida teams always want to beat us just because we're UF so we always have to have our guard up," Enea said. While their opposition enters the NCAA Tournament on a high note, the Gators enter the Regional coming off their worst loss of the season, a 9-1 trouncing at the hands of No. 11 LSU in the semifinals of the SEC Tournament. Enea But to this point in the season Florida has shown it is capable of bouncing back after a tough defeat, as the team is 7-0 in games following a loss this season.

So we're coming in with a chip on our shoulder and looking to prove to the country how good this Florida team is." always reward the worst teams, killing their chances of competing with the big boys. But that just isn't true. In the last 40 years, 14 teams in both the NFL and NBA have won titles, which shows the different systems used to decide the draft order in each league don't necessarily affect parity as much as people think. With those criticisms put to rest, I can't find many more reasons to poke holes. I will always support a system that keeps teams competitive and creates some excitement for fans of non-playoff teams during the postseason.

THURSDAY, MAY 20, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 23 Looking for a different ring By GREG LUCA Alligator Writer With one out in the bottom of the seventh, her team trailing by one and a national championship on the line, then-junior Francesca Enea stepped up to the plate and did what she's done countless times in her UF career -she delivered. Enea crushed a double down the left-field line, but could then only watch as the final two outs were recorded and the Washington Huskies celebrated their 2009 NCAA championship, dashing Florida's hopes of winning it all for the first time in school history. A title has been about the only thing that has eluded Enea in her time as a Gator. The senior left fielder has set eight Florida and Southeastern Conference hitting records, spent an entire season playing through injury, led the team both vocally and by example all year, directed numerous community service projects and even accepted a marriage proposal on the field. Despite all that, there's still one thing Enea hasn't done: win a national championship. "Not many teams can say they walked away with a national championship under their belt," Enea said. "So many girls around here or at other schools have broken records and that's great, but being able to say that you won a national championship with your team would be irreplaceable." Tough as nails When Enea first set foot on Florida's campus four years ago, she had no idea her career could blossom into what it has become today. The then-catcher described herself as just an average offensive player -certainly not someone who would go on to set the SEC career home run record with 61. "I never thought I would be much of a home-run hitter," Enea said. "I thought maybe I got lucky whenever I hit one out, so my success the last couple years has kinda surprised me." Just looking at Enea's freshman numbers, it would be pretty easy to assume her assessment was accurate. During the 2007 season, in which she played just 48 games due to a knee injury, Enea hit a meager .227 with only six home runs and 22 RBIs. While those numbers may have been a detriment to her career statistics, the lessons she learned from that down year have proven to be invaluable. "It just taught me that I can get out pretty easily and that sometimes you won't be as successful as you want to be, but you can't let that factor into how well the team is going to do," Enea said. "It taught me to take each at-bat and learn from it, to not get down when I get out but instead learn from every at-bat and every play and that's what helped me the most." Even once she put her freshman season behind her and learned how to deal with her mistakes, Enea continued to face adversity. In the fall of 2008, she suffered a tear on the same ACL that sidelined her during a stretch of her freshman campaign. An injury of that nature would typically lead to season-ending surgery, but instead Enea chose to tough it out, playing the entire 2009 season in pain. She finished the year with 18 homers and a single-season record 70 RBIs while posting a .339 batting average. While Eneawasbattling through injury and willing herself to one of the greatest seasons in UF softball history on just one knee, she still felt sorry for the team more than herself. "I think it really affected the team more than it affected me," Enea said. "I felt bad when I couldn't get to balls in the outfield and I couldn't make turns running the bases. I just felt I couldn't be as great for the team as I wanted to be." On the surface it appears that the injury has healed and things are back to normal, but there are still numerous occasions where it is obvious Enea will never be back to 100 percent. During a game on May 8 against South Carolina, Enea spent nearly a minute on the ground after taking what appeared to be a routine swing, clearly experiencing considerable pain. "Unfortunately I've had knee problems all through my life," Enea said. "As I'm getting older it's getting harder to deal with but I'm just trying to push myself through. I'm just going through every day taking care of business, seeing whatever doctors I have to so that I can finish the season and do well in my future career." Not surprisingly, Enea finished the at-bat and is yet to miss a start this season. Been there, done that When a player deals with as much adversity as Enea has over the years, it seems that leadership comes naturally both on and off the field. In terms of Florida softball, Enea offers a level of experience that only fellow senior Corrie Brooks can match, as they are the only two players who have been through both the ups of a trip to the Women's College World Series final and the downs of a 22-loss season in their freshman seasons. While all of the team's sophomores and juniors already understand the importance of not putting too much pressure on themselves and just trying to have fun in big games like those in the SEC and NCAA Tournaments, only Enea and Brooks can speak to the importance of bouncing back from losses and keeping everything going in the right direction. "In the beginning of the season Corrie and I talked to them and we said, 'Listen, we aren't going to win every game this year,"' Enea said. "We told them that we're going to lose a little bit more, and how successful we can be is based on how we bounce back from those losses. "Now we aren't afraid to lose, we just know what its like and we're not gonna let that happen." It is this hard-working, neverquit attitude that has made Enea not just the player she is today but also the person she is today -someone who has spent countless hours giving back to the Gainesville community. Over her four years she has organized the Swing for Cancer event, was the co-chair of the Climb for Cancer Sport Camps and was the catalyst behind the team's "adoption" of a 13-year-old girl with a brain tumor via the Friends of Jacyln Foundation. She has also been heavily involved with CAMP Gator, GatorTracks, Habitat for Humanity, the Special Olympics, Miracles on Main, and even squeezes in weekly visits to Shands Hospital. "I do all that just for the simple fact that I can do it," Enea said. "The University of Florida provides you with so many outlets to get involved so why not take advantage of it?" A dream come true Although Enea will leave Florida with the career records for home runs (61), RBIs (220) and slugging percentage (.646), the most memorable moment of her career might have nothing to do with softball. In what can only be described as one of the most remarkable Senior Days in the history of UF athletics, Enea experienced not only the traditional festivities but also a surprise marriage proposal that left herself and everyone else in the stadium in shock. While Enea, her family and coach Tim Walton posed for a picture alongside Enea's framed jersey and bouquet of flowers, Christian Jocelyne Sanchez/ Alligator Staff Bruey, a UF alumnus and Enea's boyfriend of three years, sneaked up behind the group and dropped to a knee. Enea, who quickly said yes, was taken aback by the presence of Bruey, who gave Enea the impression he wouldn't be able to attend the Senior Day celebration. "He said he wasn't going to be able to make it and I was giving him crap about it for weeks and saying he was going to be in the dog house if he didn't come on time," Enea said. "Then all of a sudden I heard someone shout his name out from the crowd and I looked and saw him and he didn't waste any time, he went right down on one knee and I was just shocked." Thanks to some clever planning by Bruey, who first met Enea while doing the radio broadcasts for Gators softball during her freshman year, only a small group of people knew that such a plan was in the works, least of all Enea. And although the senior was blindsided by Bruey's unexpected proposal, it turns out the plan was actually Enea's idea all along. "I had a dream about it two years ago," Enea said. "So I said to him, 'Oh I had a dream that you proposed to me on Senior Day,' and he said 'Well that'll never happenbecause I'll never make enough money for the ring you want.' So I said 'Yeah you're probably right,"' Enea was able to follow the pregame theatrics with her SECrecord-breaking 61st career home run, but she is now only concerned with putting the day behind her and focusing on what is still left to be accomplished. "It was a great day and I don't think I could stop smiling, but now the day's over and I'm just trying to move on and not get distracted by it," Enea said. Because with just three weeks to go in her Florida softball career, Enea and her teammates are honing in on the only thing that has managed to elude them the last three years -a national championship.

24, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 20, 2010 Gators to face SEC foes again Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff UF sophomore Joanna Mather was moved to the No. 2 doubles team with Lauren Embree April 9 at Tennessee and the duo is 7-0 since. BOTH TEAMS WILL BEGIN PLAY IN THE ROUND OF 16. By ANDREW OLSON Alligator Writer The Gators tennis teams schedule top-ranked non-conference opponents in the regular season to prepare for the NCAA Tournament. But in the round of 16 in Athens, Ga., both teams will face a Southeastern Conference opponent. The No. 3 women's team (26-2) takes on No. 17 Mississippi (17-5) today at 9 a.m. When the teams played in Gainesville on March 28, UF won easily 6-1. While the Rebels may be looking forward to playing the Gators on a neutral court, they should know it's a court where Florida has performed well. By defeating Georgia on the road and winning the SEC Tournament, the Gators are 4-0 this season at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex. UF coach Roland Thornqvist downplayed the Athens familiarity factor in today's match. "Having experience in Georgia is not going to give us a 1-0 start in the match," Thornqvist said. What gives Florida an increased chance of going up 1-0 is the change made in doubles since the last time UF played Mississippi. Sophomore Joanna Mather, who battled a foot injury earlier this season, recently switched places with senior Anastasia Revzina to play the No. 2 position with freshman Lauren Embree. Thornqvist said he made the C switch because Mather's speed and athleticism compliment EmWomen'S bree's similar Tennis style of play. After eight matches with the new lineup, Thornqvist feels positions Nos. 2 and 3 benefit from the switch. "Lauren is probably the fastest person I've played with," Mather said. If the speedy duo and the rest of the Gators make it past the Rebels, they could face another familiar foe. Seven other opponents Florida faced this dualmatch season are in the round of 16. The No. 6 men's team (21-4) will face a familiar opponent on Friday at 6 p.m.: championship host and SEC East rival No. 12 Georgia (19-7). Florida defeated Georgia in two previous meetings this season, most recently a 5-2 win in Gainesville on April 11. The Gators' other victory against the Bulldogs came on a neutral court, meaning UF has not traveled to Athens, Ga. this season. Despite the revenge factor and home court favoring Georgia, UF coach Andy Jackson sees Florida as one of the teams with a legitimate chance to win it all. "I don't know how many teams have a chance but we're one of the teams that have a chance," Jackson said. "Regardless, we're going to be ready to go Friday night." If the Gators advance to the Final Four, they might a get third shot at No. 2 Tennessee (27-1). Tennessee defeated Florida 4-3 on April 9 in Gainesville to win the SEC regular-season title and again in Lexington, Ky. on April 25 to win the SEC Tournament Championship. UF GOLF UF looks to win Regional for second straight season By JAIME MANHEIMER Alligator Writer The Gators hope to repeat last season's accomplishment when they travel to Indiana Thursday. Florida won the Southeast Regional in 2009 and hope to repeat this year by winning the Central Regional. To do it again, No. 6 UF will have to conquer The Warren Golf Course in Notre Dame, Ind., Thursday. "Last year we played pretty well (in regionals), and I think it's going to happen again," UF coach Buddy Alexander said. In the four years Florida has won a national title, they have never won a regional in that same year. But the team isn't focused on the past. "I don't think it matters if we win here, it doesn't mean we are not going to win, we haven't won that many Regionals before," said Alexander. "As long as we come in and do our jobs, we'll be fine." The Gators received the No. 2 seed in the Regional. Third-ranked Stanford was given the top seed and are one of nine teams that are ranked in the top 50. Florida is a combined 8-5 against the ranked teams in the field. "We just have to take care of business," Alexander said. "We hope our game is in pretty good form, and if we make smart decisions, we should win." Florida ended the season well, with two firstplace finishes and one secAlexander ond-place finish and looks strong going into Regionals. All-SEC first-team senior Tyson Alexander has been instrumental in many of UF's successes this year. Tyson recently won the first individual title of his career in the second-to-last event of the season, as he shot a career low (63) in the first round of the BancorpSouth Intercollegiate, finishing the tournament at 11-under par, one stroke off of his best tournament score. Last year at Regionals, Tyson had a solid finish shooting four-over par and finished tied for seventh place. "As a whole we just need to keep our composure," Alexander said. "If we stay focused and continue to make smart decisions, I think we will fare pretty well in Regionals."
