CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Contributing WriterThe Gainesville City Commis sion approved a possible new design for the Gainesville Police Department Headquarters and Physical Training Facility during a meeting Thursday. Joe Frisco, project executive for Mills Gilbane, and Jack Williams, design project manager for Harvard Jolly, presented three options to the City Commission for consideration. One model featured a contemporary design, which showcased a modern building with an open entrance and large windows. The other model employed a more traditional design with a red brick building. City spokesman Bob Woods said the commission rejected both options. Frisco and Williams then presented the commission with a third design. Woods said the commission realized the alternative option was the most appealing because it captured elements of both the contemporary and traditional buildings. Commissioner Susan Bottcher said GPD employee input would be invaluable in the commis It wouldnt be just a new building but a point of pride for them as well, she said. GPD Chief Tony Jones agreed to gather opinions on the models and to report back to the commission in a future meeting. Although the commission voted on a possible design, it is The design team will come back with a revised design, he said. 4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 2012 Courtesy PhotoThe above photo shows one of the models of the new Gainesville Police Department that was pre sented to the City Commission on Thursday afternoon.

MICHELLE ILLANCEAlligator Contributing Writerport wants to help students feel more prepared about the process of considering and applying for graduate school. OAS will host Graduate School Mini Conference: Everything You Want to Know from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in Ustler Hall. The conference is free for all students, but space is limited to 75 spots. We decided to start prepar ing students for life after graduating with an undergraduate degree, said Joe Johnson, assistant director of OAS. We thought this would be a good way to develop students at UF. The conference will consist of two hours of breakout sessions that include presentations about choosing the right graduate school, the politics of graduate school, tokenism in graduate school programs and basic knowledge about graduate school. The conference will provide lunch and a panel discussion with graduate students and faculty. Johnson said about 50 spots are still available. The program is free and lunch is free, Johnson said. The only thing that students have to spend is time.

She said the trap contains a trash can with the fruit inside. If the monkey disturbs the can, it will trigger the trap, and the cage will close. Once caught, the monkey will be taken to a secure location where it will be cared for. Parker said she was not sure which Gainesville facility was preparing to take the monkey. Were hoping our fruit will be more tempting than the fruit in the trees, she said. In 2010, a rhesus macaque scampered across various Tampa neighborhoods and eluded capture for years, earning the nickname Mystery Monkey, according to the Tampa Bay Times. It is currently at large.

I could seek restitution, but I work for like $3, Perez said. Before police were able to apprehend Walker in the 200-block of West University Avenue, Perez chased the Division-I athlete across three blocks but could only watch as Walker eventually tripped over his own feet in a nearby parking lot and dropped the uneaten taco on the asphalt. The theft occurred less than a week after Floridas Elite Eight loss to Louisville in the NCAA Tournament. Walker, a three-year starter at point guard and lone senior on this years team, ended his career as the Gators all-time leader in assists and minutes played. Though Walker reportedly apologized for his actions as he was leaving his arraignment, Per ez said he and Hruska dont need to hear one from the former college star. If we could get those $3, Per ez said, that would be dope. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@ alligator.org. TA CO, from page 1L OC AL

ABOUT A DOZEN COUPLES HAVE CHECKED-IN IN GAINESVILLE. CODY NED ROMANOAlligator Contributing WriterFor one couple, it felt as if mountains trembled and rainbows exploded. The sex was simply ah-maz-ing. Young people in Gainesville are using a new website to publicize and rate their intimate encounters. Wheredidyouwearit. com, a Planned Parenthood project that promotes safe sex, lets them plot their escapades on a national map along with details about age, gender and relationship status. Twenty-somethings love social media, and we like to hear about each others sex lives, said 21-year-old public relations senior Cayla Williams. This website lever ages that to promote safe sex. Planned Parenthood created the map in February to spread the message that condom use is normal and enjoyable. First pitched to college students in the Seattle area, it spread to Gainesville earlier this month. About a dozen dots on the map are now centered on UF. Though condom use in Florida is slightly higher than the national average, roughly three out of 10 Florida teens didnt wear a condom the last time they had sex, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Williams plans to boost awareness of the campaign on campus by distributing condoms labeled with QR codes, which allow students to check in to Planned Par enthoods map using their smartphones. The site doesnt display exact addresses for the sake of keeping your secret spot a secret, but it pinpoints a nearby location. Michael Fyalka, a 24-year-old adver tising junior, discovered the website this week and said hell use it. I can imagine a lot of men would use this for bragging rights, he said. The creators of Where Did You Wear It initially worried users would abuse the site by posting vulgar content, said Kristen Glundberg-Prossor, a Planned Parenthood spokeswoman. To sidestep the problem, they designed drop-down menus featuring colorful phrases for describing sex. For instance, those who have bad experiences can choose the option, It could only get better Nevertheless, some Gainesville groups Father Roland Julien, of St. Patrick Cathwould be helping abstinent students avoid areas full of sexual promiscuity. Otherwise, he said, its simply visualizing a vice, like mapping out drug or alcohol abuse. Glundberg-Prossor declined to compaign. Instead, she emphasized that the overall response among college students has been positive. We need to tell our friends about this, Williams said. Its time for them to wrap it up. FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 Screenshot of wheredidyouwearit.comThe above map shows the safe-sex check-ins for the Gainesville area as of Thursday night. Planned Parenthood promotes safe sex with post-coital check-inLOCAL ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterIn a warehouse lined with metal storage shelves sit 500-pound cardbled computer equipment. Five-foot towers of microwaves and a sea of next to a group of outdated stereo systems. The Arc of Alachua County is that provides job training and employment to the developmentally disabled. It employs about 120 residents in occupational areas like packaging, recycling, janitorial and lawn services. Every day at The Arc, about 25 developmentally disabled Gainesville residents dismantle collected E-waste from across the city. The parts are then sold to businesses where they are recycled into new products. The city decided earlier this month to start an E-waste collection program with The Arc and its environmentally friendly services. Once a week, the organization will collect unwanted or broken electronics that residents leave outside their homes and dissect them at its warehouse. After employees dissect the machines, the pieces are sold to various companies that melt the mostly metal products and reuse the material, said Todd Baker, assistant director for adult nonresidential programs at The Arc. For the past 10 years, Baker has overseen the organizations employment services. He had the idea to start the E-waste program two years ago. Im always thinking of ways that we can employ more people, Baker said. This was a way to keep ate more jobs for people who really needed them. The Arc has been collecting Ewaste from houses around the city for the last year as a trial to make sure the program ran smoothly. In that time, it has collected about 12,000 pounds of E-waste from residents, which would have been Steve Joplin, manager of the citys solid waste division. The city decided to partner with the organization because it wanted an inexpensive way to provide a convenient, ecological alternative to throwing away old electronics. Each month, the city pays The Arc about $300 for its E-waste ser vice, Joplin said. We are always looking for outof-the-box ways to solve problems, Joplin said. For some people, the big deal with this program may not be that we are recycling. It may be that somebody now has a job. The E-waste program employs about 30 residents with disabilities ranging from developmental to physical disabilities. The money given to the organization for its collection services and products is used to pay its employees, Baker said. Most people who come to The Arc seeking work have never had jobs before, said Executive Director Dick Bradley. Working at The Arc teaches them workplace skills set that some people take for granted, such as getting to work on time, learning how to use tools and communicating with bosses and co-workers, Bradley said. Eventually, the staff at The Arc helps place its employees in jobs within the community. The ultimate goal is to create jobs that help them develop a skill that is marketable outside of the The recycling industry continues to grow, so hopefully there will be more and more job opportunities for those working in our E-waste program.

Have a fun and safe weekend, and be sure to check back Its time to end the military-industrial complexTeddy Roosevelts speak-softly-and-carry-a-big-stick America has been replaced by a violent adolescent ghanistan, our parents by Vietnam and our grandparents by World War II. It is imperative that the United States takes a hard look at its use of the military. Advocates of any military action ought to stand up and explain why we must kill other people and why its necessary for more mothers to stand weeping at their sons caskets. Advocates should justify why we must deprive people of their lives, the only thing we have and will ever know in the world, through the human cost of war. Once you realize the family-destroying consequences of war, you begin to question the motives of war: to project or to mold the world in a way that better suits America. All Until 1947, the U.S. had a Department of War. The name change to the Department of Defense was done to blunt per ceptions of the departments aggression, but since the renaming, the Defense Department has been even more active. Ever wonder why we dont have a Department of Peace? The problem is precisely what President Eisenhower warned against in his Farewell Address: the military-industrial complex, a buddy-buddy relationship between the war-making industry and those in government. tive. If there is less war, the government will purchase fewer tanks and bombs, translating into less money for the warindustry for America to be at war. How does the military industry encourage war? Simple quently. Campaign contributions help prod politicians into larger military budgets and more foreign adventures. Politijet to maintain our military edge, and that it will support American jobs (in their district or state). As recent history has shown, when with the shiniest new toys, we just cant help but use them. In the end, the military industry goes laughing to the bank while more bombs whistle through the air. To dismantle the military-industrial complex, the U.S. should nationalize the military industry and reduce (if not abolish) its standing army. Although Im in the government is not the solution, it is the problem camp, nationalization of the war-making industry will set the military-industrial complex ablaze, reNationalization of the military industry wont necessarily hinder innovation; through agencies like NASA, the government has proven its innovation capabilities. The U.S. maintaining a standing army is unique to the 20th century, especially after World War II, when the U.S. thought it couldnt demilitarize because of the Soviet Union. If we reduced our standing army, not only would aggression and warfare decrease, but the economy would get a boost because, as it stands now, the U.S. dedicates almost 5 percent of its gross domestic product to defense. Some will claim that nationalizing the military industry and reducing our standing army will put America and the world in danger. Truthfully, however, other countries namely North Korea, China and Iran beef up their militaries precisely to defend against us. Instead, the U.S. can be a nation of peace and prosperity, not a nation of bloodshed and violence; however, it will take the demolition of the military-industrial complex.

FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorDepartment cuts could lead to university independenceIt is obvious we are beginning a volatile year for UF. The issue at hand is the Department of Computer and Information Science and Engineering deans proposal to drastically cut and reform CISE to address budget cuts. But we shouldnt kid ourselves that similar proposals from other deans arent coming. The budget cuts are serious, and deans are limited in the responses they can make. Most cant simply ask each department to take a small cut. Due to previous cuts, operating margins are razor-thin, and even a 2-percent cut would require cutting graduate student support or employees. Moreover, due to union agreements, any or a lecturer. Yet the latter (along with grad students) do the most teaching and cost the least. Under the Responsibility Center Management budget allocation model, the result would be a net loss of funds for the college since it would mean fewer classes. It is likely that most deans are going to see cutting out whole departments as the only option. Why are we in this situation? Is it just the bad economy? Partially, but the reality is that the state legislature continues to favor making cuts to university funding. And though UF has raised tuition 60 percent dur ing the past four years, the cuts have always exceeded the increase. This is a national trend: State governments all over are deciding that public higher education isnt a priority. The economy is bad, health care costs are rising, and they cant pay for it all. Something has to give, and that something is higher education. Why higher ed? A cynical person might suggest its because students dont vote, though there are other reasons, too. Impor tantly, this has only a loose connection to the economys health. This trend was there before the economic downturn. The downturn just hastened it. As this occurs, public universities have responded in the only way possible: cutting costs and raising tuition. At UF, there are 20 percent fewer professors in the College ago. Tuition has skyrocketed, doubling at public universities since 1994. Student loans have followed, topping $1 trillion recently. And tuition is going to get much higher here at UF. Right now, the governor is considering signing a bill to allow UF to become much more independent and raise tuition rapidly to the national average. Most faculty want him to sign it. Its the only way we survive as a top research and teaching university. Nobody likes this. But state governments are no longer interested in funding public higher education. Ohio State gets less than 10 percent of its funds from state allocations. Its tuition is nearly twice that of UFs. To survive, research universities have to become more independent. Student tuition has to skyrocket. The phrase public university will be used more sarcastically. Its the new reality. Welcome to it. Anonymous UF faculty member No one disputes that we live in the Information Age. How then can the College of Engineering justify taking aim at the specialty that spawned the age we live in? We take for granted the underlying data structures, the protocol standards born out of the minds of computer scientists and the open Web. Software powers everything from farming to Farmville. Databases are everywhere. From the largest data consumers such as the federal government, Google, AT&T, IBM and the rest of the Fortune 500 companies to the mom-and-pop companies using QuickBooks, databases are everywhere. Supply chains are increasingly automated and made to be on intelligent machinery made possible only through applied computer science. Driverless cars are on the horizon, which will save tens of thousands from needless deaths and millions more from accidents, thanks to software. Algorithms, the great sledgehammer of computer science, have tackled immense problems from space travel to nuclear power to weather prediction. no science nor art has remained untouched by computing. Bill Gates said that software is the soul of the machine, and hes right. Just as your soul is a separately distinct entity from your biology, it is an emergent property of your biology, but it remains an important entity in and of itself. It is worthy to note that the College of Medicine has an entire department dedicated to neuroscience. This is a praisewor justify its own department separate from other distinct areas of medicine or biology. Computer science is analogous to neuroscience or psychology. It is a specialty of its own, completely separate from biology. It is so complex that there are many sub-specialties of computing that grow increasingly relevant in this digital age. In fact, Georgia Tech, a Top 10 engineering school, just recently made the move to create a separate College of Computing because of this increased importance. The move to integrate computer science and electrical engineering is a move to generalize our education rather than specialize it. Expert knowledge is the single difference separating us from antiquity. Its not so much that we are orders of magnitude smarter than our ancestors; we are just more focused on The proposal by Dean Abernathy and the College of Engineering to diminish the research activity in computer science is devastating to all areas of this college. I just listed myriad industries, arts and sciences that are positively affected by research and breakthroughs in computer science. There is an unseen ripple effect in the damaging nature of this, and every student should be furious. I dont know who to blame the dean, the UF president, the governor of Florida or the people of Florida. All I know is that whatever system we have for determining our priorities as a society are broken within this state. The modern world is here to stay. Florida can either be a part of it or be left in its wake. I call on all residents of Florida to stand up and support the mission of our universities. We need to turn this attitude around. We need to be for ward-thinking and positive about progress once again in this state. We need to SAVE CISE!

The dance was part of Pride Awareness Month. BRITTANY ANN MORRISEYAlligator Contributing WriterFive-time Grammy Award-winning artist Buddy Guy will play the blues at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets for the public range from $30 to $50, depending on the location of the seats. Student tickets are $15. About 500 tickets remain, according Tickets can be purchased at the box Reitz Union.

Having him perform again is a part of the Phillips Centers 20th anniversary season, said Todd Taylor, a spokesman for UF Performing Arts. Guy will perform material from his latest album, Living Proof. There will be a pre-performance discussion with David Edmund, a visiting assistant professor in UFs School of Music, at 6:45 p.m. in the centers Fackler Foyer West. Cracker the Box, a blues and folk group, will open for Guy. The group will feature 16-year-old Anthony Kavouklis. Kavouklis was invited on stage to play guitar with Guy at his 2006 Phillips Center performance. Buddy Guy is as big as they get in the blues genre, Taylor said. And by all accounts, he puts on a great show.Phillips Center to host awardwinning blues artist MAYOR CRAIG LOWE SAID HE DOES NOT SUPPORT LEGISLATIVE CUTS TO HIGHER EDUCATION. ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterMembers of the City Commission are hesitant to create a petition against proposed budget cuts to UFs College of Engineering Department of Computer and Information Science and Engineering. A graduate student in the engineering college stood in front of the commission Thursday afternoon and asked commissioners to draft a petition in opposition to the CISE cuts. The City Commission did not comply. I just dont see any action we can take at this time that would be helpful, Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa said. Though he did not comment on cuts to CISE, Mayor Craig Lowe said he did not support decisions made by the state legislation that cut higher education funding, which he called short-sighted. Commissioner Todd Chase said he was uncomfortable making judgements deal with budget acts, referring to College of Engineering Dean Cammy Aber nathy, who proposed the CISE cuts. These cuts are from the state government, Chase said. That is who youd have to have your difference of opinion with. Chase and Mastrodicasa said discussion about the subject is good, but they said they do not foresee the commission drafting a petition in the future.

An independent audit of the Gulf Coast Claims Facility found ing of claims that led to applicants receiving less than what they were entitled to under GCCF procedures, the federal agency said. Claimants eligible for the additional payments should be receiving them in the next week to 10 days, a Justice Department spokesman said. claimants who were erroneously overpaid, but the department says the GCCF isnt trying to recover those overpayments. Fund administrator Ken Feinberg said Thursday that the $64 million amount was modest for a program that paid out more than $6 billion in 18 months. He had absorbed much of the blame for what some affected individuals and businesses said was a slow payment process. errors, it found that the GCCF claims process constituted a sigsponse. While our independent evaluation did uncover instances in which errors were made in the claims evaluation process, in general, the GCCF appeared to have consistently applied its protocols and methodologies in processing claims, the auditors report said. More than 2,600 others whose claims were erroneously denied wont be getting checks because information needed to determine loss, according to the auditors report. BP spokesman Scott Dean said the audit shows the GCCF deduring its 18-month tenure. BP created its compensation fund after the April 20, 2010 blowout of its Macondo well triggered a deadly explosion on the Deepwater Horizon rig and spawned the nations worst offshore oil spill. The GCCF processed more than 1 million claims and paid out more than $6 billion from the fund to more than 220,000 businesses and individuals, including owners, hotels and other tourismdriven businesses that blamed the spill for economic damages. After BP and a team of plaintiffs attorneys agreed to a classaction settlement of economic damage claims last month, a court-supervised administrator took over the claims process from the GCCF on March 8. Attorney General Eric Holder directed an independent auditor to evaluate the GCCF after he visited the Gulf Coast last summer. According to the Justice Department, BDO Consulting is preparing a full report that will be published later this spring.Gulf residents to get extra $64 million for oil spill claimsLowe

HE PLAYED DRUMS AND SANG FOR THE BAND. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSALBANY, N.Y. With songs like The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, The Weight and Up on Cripple Creek, The Band fused rock, blues, folk and gospel to create a sound that seemed as authentically American as a Mathew Brady photograph or a Mark Twain short story. In truth, the group had only one American Levon Helm. Helm, the drummer and singer who brought an urgent beat and a genuine Ar kansas twang to some of The Bands bestknown songs and helped turn a bunch of musicians known mostly as Bob Dylans backup group into one of rocks most legendary acts, has died. He was 71. Helm, who was found to have throat cancer in 1998, died Thursday afternoon of complications from cancer at Memorial SloanKettering Cancer Center in New York City, said Lucy Sabini of Vanguard Records. On Tuesday, a message on his website Helm and his bandmates Canadians Rick Danko, Garth Hudson, Robbie Robertson and Richard Manuel were musical virtuosos who returned to the roots of American music in the late 1960s as other rockers veered into psychedelia, heavy metal and jams. The groups 1968 debut, Music From the Big Pink, and its follow-up, The Band, remain landmark albums of the era, and songs such as The Weight, Dixie Down and Cripple Creek have become rock standards. Early on, The Band backed Dylan on his sensational and controversial electric tours of 1965-66 and collaborated with him on the legendary Basement Tapes, which produced I Shall Be Released, Tears of Rage and many other favorites. I am terribly sad. Thank you for 50 years of friendship and music, Hudson posted on his website Thursday evening. No more sorrows, no more troubles, no more pain. He went peacefully to that beautiful marvelous wonderful place. ... Levon, Im proud of you. The son of an Arkansas cotton farmer, Helm was just out of high school when he joined rocker Ronnie Hawkins for a tour of Canada in 1957 as the drummer for the Hawks. That band eventually recruited a group of Canadian musicians who, along with Helm, spent grueling years touring rough bars in Canada and the South. They would split from Hawkins, hook up with Dylan and eventually call themselves The Band because, as they explained many times, thats what everyone called them anyway. Original members of The Band were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994.

Levon Helm, renowned drummer for The Band, dies at 71 ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterThe City Commission unanimously approved the design of a new RTS Bus Fleet Maintenance and Operations Facility on Thursday, which will allow for more buses to operate throughout the city. It will be built next to the current RTS building at the intersection of Southeast First Street and Veitch Street. The current facility does not adequately service the growing number of RTS buses in Gainesville, said city spokesman Bob Woods. The approved design includes an operations and administration building, a maintenance building, a bus wash center and a parking area for 200 buses, among other features. The operations and administration building was designed to meet LEED Silver requirements. of construction done by 2014. Funding for the project came from grants from the Florida Department of Transportation. Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa said she was concerned the project may cause noise complaints from surrounding neighborhoods. The design team held two workshops earlier this year where residents shared input about the project. The team said it is working to ensure noise will not be a problem. Contact Adrianna Paidas at apaidas@ alligator.org.City Commission approves design of new bus facilitySTUDENT GOVERNMENT SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator WriterThe UF Supreme Court ruled Thursday night that campaign-like activity is allowed throughout the year. Sen. David Bradshaw petitioned the court to clarify the meaning of the election code day of the active election cycle. Bradshaw said the code was vague and could be left to numerous interpretations. He said it could be interpreted as fact and therefore be irrelevant in the codes. It could mean that restrictions only apply to the election cycle, he said, or it could mean that campaigning can only happen during the election cycle. The court ruled that election codes still apply to campaign action, and if facts implicate a political party, it will be held responsible even if the party does not exist. UF political parties are only registered as student organizations for about six weeks each semester. They are unregistered one week after elections, according to the Student Organization Handbook. Bradshaw said this raised the issue that because the party does not exist, it cannot be held responsible if someone associated with the party violated the election codes. Chief Justice Matt Michel was not aware that political parties did not exist outside of the election cycle. But he said that in some fashion, political parties do exist throughout the year. After the slating process starts, the Election Commission could look back at actions that already happened and rule on it, Michel said after the hearing. Bradshaw said he was pleased with the court ruling for now. The court found that [legislation] needs to be done in the Senate, he said.

Vote at alligatorSports.org. Gator alum leads PGA Tour eventFormer Florida golfer Matt Every shot a 9-under 63 Thursday to set a UF COMPETES TONIGHT AT 6 IN DULUTH, GA. LANDON WATNICK At the beginning of one of the Gators recent practices before NCAA Regionals, Alaina Johnson read a quote that resonated deeply with her teammates. Go big or go home, the sophomore all-around competitor said. The mantra has inspired UF, which hasnt won a national title in the NCAAs 31 years of womens gymnastics, to lay it all on the line this postseason. I kind of just said it as a joke, but I also do believe that, Johnson said. If you give everything you have every day, then you cant look back. When No. 1 seed Florida competes in the evening session of the NCAA Championships in The Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Ga., tonight at 6 p.m., its go big or go home mentality will be put to the test. be defending national champion No. 4 Alabama, No. 5 Georgia, No. 8 Arkansas, No. 9 Oregon State and No. 12 Ohio State. This season, Florida holds a 6-1 record against those teams. UF defeated each of the three Southeastern Conference squads by at least .375 points when it won the SEC Championship in Duluth on March 24. Now were going back to a site where we were just there [four weeks] ago, coach Rhonda Faehn said. Its very fresh in their memory. The Gators know what it feels like to leave the NCAA Championships empty-handed. Last year in Cleveland, the team failed to place only .075 points and missed the SuIn Faehns 10 years as Floridas coach, the Gators have come relatively close to winning it all. They NCAAs was second in 1998. This year, we dont have anything to lose, junior Randy Stageberg said. Were coming off nationals where we didnt make the Super Six but had such a talented team. From the very start of this year, coming in to the gym and working with this team, its not even close to what it was before. Everyone is so much more driven and focused. We only compete against ourselves. Florida is heading into nationals with plenty of momentum. In the regional victory on April 7, the Gators posted the highest score (197.325) of any of the 36 squads competing at the NCAAs six regional sites. But only four teams Georgia, Utah, UCLA and Alabama have won national titles. Florida has always played spectator to other teams celebrations, but believes this year it has a good shot at becoming member No. 5 of the championship circle. They expect to be able to be No. 1 and go in there and perform the way they have all year long, Faehn said. Thats something weve carried all year long, to compete tight and go aggressive no matter what. We dont want to lose, so its a matter of leaving it all out there.Poll Results most likely to win a 49% BASEBALL 18% MENS TRACK 14% WOMENS TENNIS 12% OTHER 7% LACROSSE76 total votes David Carr / Alligator StaffFlorida gymnasts (from left to right) Jamie Shisler, Lauren Rose, Ashane Dickerson, Dali Lemezan, Amy Ferguson and Nicole Ellis wave to Gators motivated to go big or go home at NCAA Championship ELI MARGER Since the start of the season, the Gators have had their focus on the postseason.

SERIES BEGINS TODAY AT 4 P.M. AT SEASHOLE PRESSLY STADIUM. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer A loss to Florida Inter national wouldnt derail Florida from its postseasonbound track. But it would hurt nonetheless. This season, the Gators have dropped games to instate rivals South Florida and UCF. And although UFs record against Florida teams is still a respectable 4-2, losing any of its games against FIU starting today at 4 p.m. would be disappointing. Freshman Lauren Haeger knows the sting of losing to an in-state school, having dropped her start against the Bulls on March 28. That loss is UFs only at home this season, and she said it would be a big deal to even lose one game to the Panthers. Were supposed to win, Haeger said. We cant say, Oh, its OK that we lost a game. Were going to take (FIU) seriously just like anyone else. When we do play our best, we can beat anyone, so I would be disappointed if we didnt win. We all expect a lot out of each other and I know coach (Tim Walton) expects a lot out of us, too. Haeger said it would be easy for her team to over look this series against FIU because it has no major implications on whats to come in the Southeastern Confer ence Tournament or NCAA Championships. But she doesnt want to let that happen. We looked over some teams this season already, some Florida teams, and let it happen again, Haeger said. Were really going to focus on this weekend. Yeah, we play LSU next week and Alabama and Kentucky in the future, but we are really going to focus on this weekend. Historically, the Gators have always had a dominating grip on in-state teams. Since 1997, Florida has chalked up a 128-40 record. The last time UF lost at least two games to Florida schools was 2006, when against Florida State, Stetson and Florida Atlantic. But the Gators have never been swept in a three-game series against a school from the state of Florida in their 16-year history. Junior Kelsey Horton would like to keep it that way. Our in-state rivals have been playing us pretty tough this season, Horton said. It wouldnt be a huge disappointment (to lose), but I dont think anyone wants to lose. So were going to play as hard as we can. You dont want to get nervous; you dont want to get anxious. Just stay loose and play softball. getting everyone to play well at the same time. The difference from the regular season, though, is the pressure. A lot of people play much differently when theres a lot of pressure, Carleton said. Thats where you really see the level. Postseason is the great equalizer. We all just have to play as a team. We have to come out and play strong in doubles. If we have all six guys playing, were tough to beat. We just have to all be there, all play well, and just get ready and not give the other team anything. Carleton also noted that rankings arent necessarily the best indicator of a teams postseason chances. For example, Florida could be ranked higher if not for losing close decisions against Kentucky and Geor gia. In the postseason, the Gators know that those losses could easily be turned into wins. (The rankings) arent arbitrary, but just because a team ranked No. 3 is playing a team ranked No. 15 in the tournament, it doesnt mean the No. 3 is a guaranteed win, he said. Tennis, even though its a team sport in college, its an individual court. Anything is possible in tennis. The No. 3 women will be facing Tennessee at 7 p.m. in Oxford, Miss. The Gators will be searching for their third consecutive SEC tournament championship. 18, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 2012 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFreshman Lauren Haeger stands in the circle between pitches during the teams only home loss this season, a 4-1 defeat to USF on March 28.

JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Writer Amanda OLeary was simply driving home from work in the summer of 2008 when she saw something she had never seen before: girls playing lacrosse in Gainesville. While she had been hired to start the Florida womens lacrosse program, the Gators were still two years and OLeary was unaware the sport had a youth presence locally. By chance, she had stumbled upon a summer practice put on by Buchholz coaches Ian and Lynn Millinoff. I had never seen that in this area, OLeary said. Of course I got really excited, made a U-turn, parked in the parking lot, came over and introduced myself. The couple was just in its second year of coaching lacrosse and was more than happy to oblige when OLeary asked if she could help out and give the kids some pointers. She taught the girls for about a half an hour and it was fantastic, Ian said. They learned more in that half hour than it took us two years to teach them. While lacrosse is spreading to most high schools in the area, no program has made a deep run in the state playoffs. program at the private Oak Hall School, none are grooming a potential Division I prospect like OLearys daughter Madison. But the girls program at Oak Hall might not exist yet if it were not for the OLearys. Madison played in a middle school league started by the Millinoffs, but she wanted to continue playing lacrosse in high school. With limited options in the area, she and her mom approached the Oak Hall administration about forming a program, and the school supported the idea. Local coaches agree OLearys ville-area player to make it big at the next level, but UF has yet to recruit any player from the area and has just three in-state players on its roster. wealth of talent in their state, only 12 percent of the Gators roster is from Florida. Sixty-one percent of the No. 2 Oranges roster is comprised of players from New York while 62 percent of No. 4 Terrapins roster is from in state. The University of Florida is the OLeary said. I think if you can build a roster with Florida players I think that would be something we would look to do. I would be all for it. The biggest reason for the disparity of in-state talent between Florida and the northern schools is the amount of opportunities to play high school and club lacrosse. Florida has two high-level club programs, while Maryland has more than 20. At the high school level, Florida has 113 programs, or one per 18,062 girls under the age of 18. Maryland has 196 programs, or one per 3,488 girls under 18. It would be a huge help, OLeary said of the possibility of being able to recruit the area. Those opportunities are going to afford themselves to these young women sooner rather than later. Eastside High boys coach Chuck Rogan and girls coach Amber Tomassi said for talent in the area to improve a feeder system a club program that has the ability to travel around the country to play top-level competition needs to be established. Rogan said players have not been able to improve enough to be recruited by Division I programs such as Florida due to the lack of quality competition. Its absolutely exploding and going viral, Rogan said of lacrosse in Gainesville. The other side of the coin is, there is a ceiling without feeder programs. Paul McCord has already installed the blueprint for how Gainesville lacrosse can raise its ceiling. An assistant womens coach at Jacksonville University and father of Florida freshman attacker Taylor McCord, Paul started growing the sport at the middle and high school levels in the area with the help of his wife Mindy, JUs head coach. When interest grew enough at the middle school level, the McCords started Lax Maniax, a girls club lacrosse program with teams for middleand high-school age girls. What that did was it provided them with tremendous experience playing against the Long Island teams, the Maryland teams, Paul said. He added that Lax Maniax has taken more than 50 trips to New York and Maryland with at least 1,000 kids from Florida. Taylor played at Bartram Trail High in Jacksonville, a program that was also started by her parents. Several of her teammates also played with her on Lax Maniax. She said that Bartram Trail saw a marked improvement in its performance once ence at the club level. If youre not interested in playing in college, then just play high school, Taylor said. But if you are interested in playing in college you team. While the addition of a club program would help, OLeary thinks the high schools are close to producing players she can recruit. Ive seen just in the course of watching Madison play in that league the improvement has been tremendous, OLeary said. I dont think were real far away. FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 19Brett Le Blanc / Alligator Staff LACROSSE FEATUREOLeary, Gators helping establish breeding ground for local lacrosse JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer The Gators want revenge. But it wont come easy. In its biggest game of the season to date, No. 5 Florida (14-2, 4-0 American Lacrosse Conference) will look to upset No. 1 Northwestern (14-0, 4-0) on the road Saturday and take the conference regular-season championship for the second year in a row. Last time we played they did beat us, so I think there is a little bit of a revenge coming, junior attacker Kitty Cullen said. And last time we were there we got killed, In 2011, Florida defeated No. 2 Northwestern in Gainesville, 13-11, to capture its the eventual-champion Wildcats evened the nament with a 10-9 win. Coach Amanda OLeary said Northwestern has improved since the end of last year, when it defeated Maryland in the national championship. Ultimately, we have a little bit more successful against them last year, OLeary said. But they also know [Northwestern] is a totally different team Their players are a year older, and they didnt really lose any from last year. six scorers, including senior attacker and 2011 Tewaaraton Award winner Shannon Smith and 2011 IWLCA Division I Defender of the Year Taylor Thornton. This is a stacked team, OLeary said. Northwestern prefers to play a highpressure defense in which it double-teams whoever has the ball at any point on the matchup last season, as Cullen scored six goals while consistently beating the double teams. However, the Wildcats changed defenses in the conference tournament game. I was sometimes face guarded, sometimes wasnt, Cullen said. They just kind of packed in a little more instead of running out at us so fast. OLeary said she expects the Wildcats to come out aggressively on defense to start, but added that their ability to defend in multiple ways makes them tough to beat. She keeps you guessing, OLeary said of Northwestern coach Kelly Hiller. Shes a fantastic coach. Although junior transfer Gabi Wiegand Wildcats, she is well aware of the magnitude of Saturdays showdown. I know since Florida beat Northwestern last year its going to be a huge game, Wiegand said. Both teams look at it as a rivalry. While she stressed the importance of UF not getting ahead of itself and preparing one game at a time, Wiegand also said she recognized the impact beating Northwestern could have on the Gators going forward. dence, Wiegand said, and send a message to all the other teams that we are here to win a national championship.Fifth-ranked Florida looking for redemption at No. 1 NorthwesternThe Wildcats won last meeting I think both teams look at it as a rivalry.UF junior attacker

20, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 2012 BASEBALL TOM GREENAlligator Staff Writer Florida knew a rough stretch was coming, even before the season began. The Gators are no strangers to midseason lulls they had an 8-8 stretch that spanned from the end of season, too they just had to brace for it and weather the storm again this season. We knew at the beginning of the year it was going to happen at some Tucker said. The key was just to get out of it as soon as we could I think were doing a great job of turning it around so far. games to seemingly end the rut, No. 5 Florida (29-8, 9-6 Southeastern Conference) will look to keep the momentum rolling this weekend in a series against Georgia (23-15, 7-8 SEC), starting tonight at 7. Since a loss to Ole Miss on March 30 marked the beginning of Floridas slump, the Gators have employed nine different lineups in 11 games in search of the right recipe to cure their midseason woes. Turns out the solution to the problem rested with juniors Nolan Fontana and Brian Johnson, who have keyed UFs recent turnaround by getting out of their own slumps at the plate. After a 5-for-36 funk dropped Fontana from the leadoff spot in the Gators order following the series opener against Ole Miss, the shortstop has been on a tear. He has hit .450 since and worked his way back to the top of the or der. Instead of the ball looking like it does, it looks a little bigger, like a grapefruit, Fontana said. I feel like things are going well and were starting to click offensively altogether. That includes Johnson, who is 10 after hitting 9 for 45 (.200) in his previous 13 appearances in the batting order. Theyve done an outstanding job, especially since the lineup hasnt been swinging it too well as of late, Tucker said. Theyve really stepped up from the bottom third of the lineup and working their way up. Theyre doing a great job of producing runs, scoring guys when we need them to. Thats a big part of our success right now. If the Gators want that success to continue through this weekend, southpaw Alex Wood (5-1, 2.61 ERA) in the series opener. Florida has often times struggled against left-handed pitchers, and Wood provides another stiff challenge. In his last three starts, against ranked SEC opponents Kentucky, Arkansas and Ole Miss, Wood is 2-0, tossing 22.2 innings and striking out 23 while giving up an aver age of three runs per outing. Floridas weekend rotation, on the other hand, is still looking to return to form. The Gators will start righty Jonathon Crawford tonight, with Johnson taking the mound Saturday and Hudson Randall returning to since the Ole Miss series. Their starting pitching is really good, Tucker said. [Wood is] an outstanding prospect, great arm, left-handed pitcher. Hes going to be tough to beat. Hopefully our starting pitching will do a great job of getting us deep into the game and not giving up a whole lot of runs.

As the Gators head to Fayetteville, Ark., in hopes of winning their ninth Southeastern Conference title, they will be competing at Blessings Golf Club, a course that nobody on the team, not even coach Jan Dowling, has played before. Ive never been there. No one on our team has been there. So that makes our practice round as important as any practice round can be, Dowling said. Weve got to learn a lot of information in just 18 holes of golf. In addition to the practice round, Dowling believes that her teams reduction in high scores will be a key factor in having a good performance this weekend. During the Allstate Sugar Bowl Collegiate Classic at the end of February, Florida was the only team that went two out of three rounds without any players carding a double-bogey, according to Dowling. Dowling said. It meant that were managing the golf course very well, it meant that our short games were very good [and] it meant that our team was making very good decisions out there.

CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Contributing WriterThe Gainesville City Commission approved a possible new design for the Gainesville Police Department Headquarters and Physical Training Facility during a meeting Thursday. Joe Frisco, project executive for Mills Gilbane, and Jack Williams, design project manager for Harvard Jolly, presented three options to the City Commission for consideration. One model featured a contemporary design, which showcased a modern building with an open entrance and large windows. The other model employed a more traditional design with a red brick building. City spokesman Bob Woods said the commission rejected both options. Frisco and Williams then presented the commission with a third design. Woods said the commission realized the alternative option was the most appealing because it captured elements of both the contemporary and traditional buildings. Commissioner Susan Bottcher said GPD employee input would be invaluable in the commisIt wouldnt be just a new building but a point of pride for them as well, she said.

OAS will host Graduate School Mini Conference: Everything You Want to Know from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in Ustler Hall. The conference is free for all students, but space is limited to 75 spots. We decided to start prepar ing students for life after graduating with an undergraduate degree, said Joe Johnson, assistant director of OAS. We thought this would be a good way to develop students at UF. The conference will consist of two hours of breakout sessions that include presentations about choosing the right graduate school, the politics of graduate school, tokenism in graduate school programs and basic knowledge about graduate school. The conference will provide lunch and a panel discussion with graduate students and faculty. Johnson said about 50 spots are still available. The program is free and lunch is free, Johnson said.

ABOUT A DOZEN COUPLES HAVE CHECKED-IN IN GAINESVILLE. CODY NED ROMANOAlligator Contributing WriterFor one couple, it felt as if mountains trembled and rainbows exploded. The sex was simply ah-maz-ing. Young people in Gainesville are using a new website to publicize and rate their intimate encounters. Wheredidyouwearit. com, a Planned Parenthood project that promotes safe sex, lets them plot their escapades on a national map along with details about age, gender and relationship status. Twenty-somethings love social media, and we like to hear about each others sex lives, said 21-year-old public relations senior Cayla Williams. This website lever ages that to promote safe sex. Planned Parenthood created the map in February to spread the message that condom use is normal and enjoyable. First pitched to college students in the Seattle area, it spread to Gainesville earlier this month. About a dozen dots on the map are now centered on UF. Though condom use in Florida is slightly higher than the national average, roughly three out of 10 Florida teens didnt wear a condom the last time they had sex, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Williams plans to boost awareness of the campaign on campus by distributing condoms labeled with QR codes, which allow students to check in to Planned Par enthoods map using their smartphones. The site doesnt display exact addresses for the sake of keeping your secret spot a secret, but it pinpoints a nearby location. Michael Fyalka, a 24-year-old adver tising junior, discovered the website this week and said hell use it. I can imagine a lot of men would use this for bragging rights, he said. The creators of Where Did You Wear It initially worried users would abuse the site by posting vulgar content, said Kristen Glundberg-Prossor, a Planned Parenthood spokeswoman. To sidestep the problem, they designed drop-down menus featuring colorful phrases for describing sex. For instance, those who have bad experiences can choose the option, It could only get better Nevertheless, some Gainesville groups Father Roland Julien, of St. Patrick Cathwould be helping abstinent students avoid areas full of sexual promiscuity. Otherwise, he said, its simply visualizing a vice, like mapping out drug or alcohol abuse. Glundberg-Prossor declined to compaign. Instead, she emphasized that the overall response among college students has been positive. We need to tell our friends about this, Williams said. Its time for them to wrap it up.

Five-foot towers of microwaves and a sea of next to a group of outdated stereo systems. The Arc of Alachua County is that provides job training and employment to the developmentally disabled. It employs about 120 residents in occupational areas like packaging, recycling, janitorial and lawn services. Every day at The Arc, about 25 developmentally disabled Gainesville residents dismantle collected E-waste from across the city. The parts are then sold to businesses where they are recycled into new products. The city decided earlier this month to start an E-waste collection program with The Arc and its environmentally friendly services. Once a week, the organization will collect unwanted or broken electronics that residents leave outside their homes and dissect them at its warehouse. After employees dissect the machines, the pieces are sold to various companies that melt the mostly metal products and reuse the material, said Todd Baker, assistant director for adult nonresidential programs at The Arc. For the past 10 years, Baker has overseen the organizations employment services. He had the idea to start the E-waste program two years ago. Im always thinking of ways that we can employ more people, Baker said. This was a way to keep ate more jobs for people who really needed them. The Arc has been collecting Ewaste from houses around the city for the last year as a trial to make sure the program ran smoothly. In that time, it has collected about 12,000 pounds of E-waste from residents, which would have been Steve Joplin, manager of the citys solid waste division. The city decided to partner with the organization because it wanted an inexpensive way to provide a convenient, ecological alternative to throwing away old electronics. Each month, the city pays The Arc about $300 for its E-waste ser vice, Joplin said. We are always looking for outof-the-box ways to solve problems, Joplin said. For some people, the big deal with this program may not be that we are recycling. It may be that somebody now has a job. The E-waste program employs about 30 residents with disabilities ranging from developmental to physical disabilities. The money given to the organization for its collection services and products is used to pay its employees, Baker said. Most people who come to The Arc seeking work have never had jobs before, said Executive Director Dick Bradley. Working at The Arc teaches them workplace skills set that some people take for granted, such as getting to work on time, learning how to use tools and communicating with bosses and co-workers, Bradley said. Eventually, the staff at The Arc helps place its employees in jobs within the community. The ultimate goal is to create jobs that help them develop a skill that is marketable outside of the The recycling industry continues to grow, so hopefully there will be more and more job opportunities for those working in our E-waste program.

Have a fun and safe weekend, and be sure to check back Its time to end the military-industrial complexTeddy Roosevelts speak-softly-and-carry-a-big-stick America has been replaced by a violent adolescent ghanistan, our parents by Vietnam and our grandparents by World War II. It is imperative that the United States takes a hard look at its use of the military. Advocates of any military action ought to stand up and explain why we must kill other people and why its necessary for more mothers to stand weeping at their sons caskets. Advocates should justify why we must deprive people of their lives, the only thing we have and will ever know in the world, through the human cost of war. Once you realize the family-destroying consequences of war, you begin to question the motives of war: to project or to mold the world in a way that better suits America. All Until 1947, the U.S. had a Department of War. The name change to the Department of Defense was done to blunt per ceptions of the departments aggression, but since the renaming, the Defense Department has been even more active. Ever wonder why we dont have a Department of Peace? The problem is precisely what President Eisenhower warned against in his Farewell Address: the military-industrial complex, a buddy-buddy relationship between the war-making industry and those in government. tive. If there is less war, the government will purchase fewer tanks and bombs, translating into less money for the warindustry for America to be at war. How does the military industry encourage war? Simple quently. Campaign contributions help prod politicians into larger military budgets and more foreign adventures. Politijet to maintain our military edge, and that it will support American jobs (in their district or state). As recent history has shown, when with the shiniest new toys, we just cant help but use them. In the end, the military industry goes laughing to the bank while more bombs whistle through the air. To dismantle the military-industrial complex, the U.S. should nationalize the military industry and reduce (if not abolish) its standing army. Although Im in the government is not the solution, it is the problem camp, nationalization of the war-making industry will set the military-industrial complex ablaze, reNationalization of the military industry wont necessarily hinder innovation; through agencies like NASA, the government has proven its innovation capabilities. The U.S. maintaining a standing army is unique to the 20th century, especially after World War II, when the U.S. thought it couldnt demilitarize because of the Soviet Union. If we reduced our standing army, not only would aggression and warfare decrease, but the economy would get a boost because, as it stands now, the U.S. dedicates almost 5 percent of its gross domestic product to defense. Some will claim that nationalizing the military industry and reducing our standing army will put America and the world in danger. Truthfully, however, other countries namely North Korea, China and Iran beef up their militaries precisely to defend against us. Instead, the U.S. can be a nation of peace and prosperity, not a nation of bloodshed and violence; however, it will take the demolition of the military-industrial complex.

FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorDepartment cuts could lead to university independenceIt is obvious we are beginning a volatile year for UF. The issue at hand is the Department of Computer and Information Science and Engineering deans proposal to drastically cut and reform CISE to address budget cuts. But we shouldnt kid ourselves that similar proposals from other deans arent coming. The budget cuts are serious, and deans are limited in the responses they can make. Most cant simply ask each department to take a small cut. Due to previous cuts, operating margins are razor-thin, and even a 2-percent cut would require cutting graduate student support or employees. Moreover, due to union agreements, any or a lecturer. Yet the latter (along with grad students) do the most teaching and cost the least. Under the Responsibility Center Management budget allocation model, the result would be a net loss of funds for the college since it would mean fewer classes. It is likely that most deans are going to see cutting out whole departments as the only option. Why are we in this situation? Is it just the bad economy? Partially, but the reality is that the state legislature continues to favor making cuts to university funding. And though UF has raised tuition 60 percent during the past four years, the cuts have always exceeded the increase. This is a national trend: State governments all over are deciding that public higher education isnt a priority. The economy is bad, health care costs are rising, and they cant pay for it all. Something has to give, and that something is higher education. Why higher ed? A cynical person might suggest its because students dont vote, though there are other reasons, too. Importantly, this has only a loose connection to the economys health. This trend was there before the economic downturn. The downturn just hastened it. As this occurs, public universities have responded in the only way possible: cutting costs and raising tuition. At UF, there are 20 percent fewer professors in the College ago. Tuition has skyrocketed, doubling at public universities since 1994. Student loans have followed, topping $1 trillion recently. And tuition is going to get much higher here at UF. Right now, the governor is considering signing a bill to allow UF to become much more independent and raise tuition rapidly to the national average. Most faculty want him to sign it. Its the only way we survive as a top research and teaching university. Nobody likes this. But state governments are no longer interested in funding public higher education. Ohio State gets less than 10 percent of its funds from state allocations. Its tuition is nearly twice that of UFs. To survive, research universities have to become more independent. Student tuition has to skyrocket. The phrase public university will be used more sarcastically. Its the new reality. Welcome to it. Anonymous UF faculty member No one disputes that we live in the Information Age. How then can the College of Engineering justify taking aim at the specialty that spawned the age we live in? We take for granted the underlying data structures, the protocol standards born out of the minds of computer scientists and the open Web. Software powers everything from farming to Farmville. Databases are everywhere. From the largest data consumers such as the federal government, Google, AT&T, IBM and the rest of the Fortune 500 companies to the mom-and-pop companies using QuickBooks, databases are everywhere. Supply chains are increasingly automated and made to be on intelligent machinery made possible only through applied computer science. Driverless cars are on the horizon, which will save tens of thousands from needless deaths and millions more from accidents, thanks to software. Algorithms, the great sledgehammer of computer science, have tackled immense problems from space travel to nuclear power to weather prediction. no science nor art has remained untouched by computing. Bill Gates said that software is the soul of the machine, and hes right. Just as your soul is a separately distinct entity from your biology, it is an emergent property of your biology, but it remains an important entity in and of itself. It is worthy to note that the College of Medicine has an entire department dedicated to neuroscience. This is a praisewor justify its own department separate from other distinct areas of medicine or biology. Computer science is analogous to neuroscience or psychology. It is a specialty of its own, completely separate from biology. It is so complex that there are many sub-specialties of computing that grow increasingly relevant in this digital age. In fact, Georgia Tech, a Top 10 engineering school, just recently made the move to create a separate College of Computing because of this increased importance. The move to integrate computer science and electrical engineering is a move to generalize our education rather than specialize it. Expert knowledge is the single difference separating us from antiquity. Its not so much that we are orders of magnitude smarter than our ancestors; we are just more focused on The proposal by Dean Abernathy and the College of Engineering to diminish the research activity in computer science is devastating to all areas of this college. I just listed myriad industries, arts and sciences that are positively affected by research and breakthroughs in computer science. There is an unseen ripple effect in the damaging nature of this, and every student should be furious. I dont know who to blame the dean, the UF president, the governor of Florida or the people of Florida. All I know is that whatever system we have for determining our priorities as a society are broken within this state. The modern world is here to stay. Florida can either be a part of it or be left in its wake. I call on all residents of Florida to stand up and support the mission of our universities. We need to turn this attitude around. We need to be for ward-thinking and positive about progress once again in this state. We need to SAVE CISE!

A graduate student in the engineering college stood in front of the commission Thursday afternoon and asked commissioners to draft a petition in opposition to the CISE cuts. The City Commission did not comply. I just dont see any action we can take at this time that would be helpful, Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa said. Though he did not comment on cuts to CISE, Mayor Craig Lowe said he did not support decisions made by the state legislation that cut higher education funding, which he called short-sighted. Commissioner Todd Chase said he was uncomfortable making judgements deal with budget acts, referring to College of Engineering Dean Cammy Aber nathy, who proposed the CISE cuts. These cuts are from the state government, Chase said. That is who youd have to have your difference of opinion with.

Fund administrator Ken Feinberg said Thursday that the $64 million amount was modest for a program that paid out more than $6 billion in 18 months. He had absorbed much of the blame for what some affected individuals and businesses said was a slow payment process. errors, it found that the GCCF claims process constituted a sigsponse. While our independent evaluation did uncover instances in which errors were made in the claims evaluation process, in general, the GCCF appeared to have consistently applied its protocols and methodologies in processing claims, the auditors report said. More than 2,600 others whose claims were erroneously denied wont be getting checks because information needed to determine loss, according to the auditors report. BP spokesman Scott Dean said the audit shows the GCCF deduring its 18-month tenure. BP created its compensation fund after the April 20, 2010 blowout of its Macondo well triggered a deadly explosion on the Deepwater Horizon rig and spawned the nations worst offshore oil spill. The GCCF processed more than 1 million claims and paid out more than $6 billion from the fund to more than 220,000 businesses and individuals, including owners, hotels and other tourismdriven businesses that blamed the spill for economic damages. After BP and a team of plaintiffs attorneys agreed to a classaction settlement of economic damage claims last month, a court-supervised administrator took over the claims process from the GCCF on March 8. Attorney General Eric Holder directed an independent auditor to evaluate the GCCF after he visited the Gulf Coast last summer.

HE PLAYED DRUMS AND SANG FOR THE BAND. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSALBANY, N.Y. With songs like The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, The Weight and Up on Cripple Creek, The Band fused rock, blues, folk and gospel to create a sound that seemed as authentically American as a Mathew Brady photograph or a Mark Twain short story. In truth, the group had only one American Levon Helm. Helm, the drummer and singer who brought an urgent beat and a genuine Arkansas twang to some of The Bands bestknown songs and helped turn a bunch of musicians known mostly as Bob Dylans backup group into one of rocks most legendary acts, has died. He was 71. Helm, who was found to have throat cancer in 1998, died Thursday afternoon of complications from cancer at Memorial SloanKettering Cancer Center in New York City, said Lucy Sabini of Vanguard Records. On Tuesday, a message on his website Helm and his bandmates Canadians Rick Danko, Garth Hudson, Robbie Robertson and Richard Manuel were musical virtuosos who returned to the roots of American music in the late 1960s as other rockers veered into psychedelia, heavy metal and jams. The groups 1968 debut, Music From the Big Pink, and its follow-up, The Band, remain landmark albums of the era, and songs such as The Weight, Dixie Down and Cripple Creek have become rock standards. Early on, The Band backed Dylan on his sensational and controversial electric tours of 1965-66 and collaborated with him on the legendary Basement Tapes, which produced I Shall Be Released, Tears of Rage and many other favorites. I am terribly sad. Thank you for 50 years of friendship and music, Hudson posted on his website Thursday evening. No more sorrows, no more troubles, no more pain. He went peacefully to that beautiful marvelous wonderful place. ... Levon, Im proud of you. The son of an Arkansas cotton farmer, Helm was just out of high school when he joined rocker Ronnie Hawkins for a tour of Canada in 1957 as the drummer for the Hawks. That band eventually recruited a group of Canadian musicians who, along with Helm, spent grueling years touring rough bars in Canada and the South. They would split from Hawkins, hook up with Dylan and eventually call themselves The Band because, as they explained many times, thats what everyone called them anyway. Original members of The Band were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994.

It will be built next to the current RTS building at the intersection of Southeast First Street and Veitch Street. The current facility does not adequately service the growing number of RTS buses in Gainesville, said city spokesman Bob Woods.

The operations and administration building was designed to meet LEED Silver requirements. of construction done by 2014. Funding for the project came from grants from the Florida Department of Transportation.

The court ruled that election codes still apply to campaign action, and if facts implicate a political party, it will be held responsible even if the party does not exist. UF political parties are only registered as student organizations for about six weeks each semester. They are unregistered one week after elections, according to the Student Organization Handbook. Bradshaw said this raised the issue that because the party does not exist, it cannot be held responsible if someone associated with the party violated the election codes. Chief Justice Matt Michel was not aware that political parties did not exist outside of the election cycle. But he said that in some fashion, political parties do exist throughout the year. After the slating process starts, the Election Commission could look back at actions that already happened and rule on it, Michel said after the hearing. Bradshaw said he was pleased with the court ruling for now. The court found that [legislation] needs to be done in the Senate, he said.

FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Floridas pitching staffWith star righty Karsten Whitson still not in the rotation, are you worried about UFs staff going forward? Vote at alligatorSports.org. Gator alum leads PGA Tour eventFormer Florida golfer Matt Every shot a 9-under 63 Thursday to set a UF COMPETES TONIGHT AT 6 IN DULUTH, GA. LANDON WATNICK At the beginning of one of the Gators recent practices before NCAA Regionals, Alaina Johnson read a quote that resonated deeply with her teammates. Go big or go home, the sophomore all-around competitor said. The mantra has inspired UF, which hasnt won a national title in the NCAAs 31 years of womens gymnastics, to lay it all on the line this postseason. I kind of just said it as a joke, but I also do believe that, Johnson said. If you give everything you have every day, then you cant look back. When No. 1 seed Florida competes in the evening session of the NCAA Championships in The Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Ga., tonight at 6 p.m., its go big or go home mentality will be put to the test. be defending national champion No. 4 Alabama, No. 5 Georgia, No. 8 Arkansas, No. 9 Oregon State and No. 12 Ohio State. This season, Florida holds a 6-1 record against those teams. UF defeated each of the three Southeastern Conference squads by at least .375 points when it won the SEC Championship in Duluth on March 24. Now were going back to a site where we were just there [four weeks] ago, coach Rhonda Faehn said. Its very fresh in their memory. The Gators know what it feels like to leave the NCAA Championships empty-handed. Last year in Cleveland, the team failed to place only .075 points and missed the SuIn Faehns 10 years as Floridas coach, the Gators have come relatively close to winning it all. They NCAAs was second in 1998. This year, we dont have anything to lose, junior Randy Stageberg said. Were coming off nationals where we didnt make the Super Six but had such a talented team. From the very start of this year, coming in to the gym and working with this team, its not even close to what it was before. Everyone is so much more driven and focused. We only compete against ourselves. Florida is heading into nationals with plenty of momentum. In the regional victory on April 7, the Gators posted the highest score (197.325) of any of the 36 squads competing at the NCAAs six regional sites. But only four teams Georgia, Utah, UCLA and Alabama have won national titles. Florida has always played spectator to other teams celebrations, but believes this year it has a good shot at becoming member No. 5 of the championship circle. They expect to be able to be No. 1 and go in there and perform the way they have all year long, Faehn said. Thats something weve carried all year long, to compete tight and go aggressive no matter what. We dont want to lose, so its a matter of leaving it all out there.Poll Results most likely to win a 49% BASEBALL 18% MENS TRACK 14% WOMENS TENNIS 12% OTHER 7% LACROSSE76 total votes David Carr / Alligator StaffFlorida gymnasts (from left to right) Jamie Shisler, Lauren Rose, Ashane Dickerson, Dali Lemezan, Amy Ferguson and Nicole Ellis wave to Gators motivated to go big or go home at NCAA Championship ELI MARGER Since the start of the season, the Gators have had their focus on the postseason. It has been a point of emphasis, and every adjustment the team has made throughout the year was done with the postseason in mind. Now, it has arrived.

Tournament and NCAA (Tournament) just because its a bonus, said junior Bob van Overbeek. Its nice to have those extra matches and have time off to prepare for them. Hopefully we can do well this weekend and get some momentum going into the NCAA Tournament. Although the pressure will be on this weekend, van Overbeek said the SEC Tournament serves a function more as a warmup to the NCAA Tournament. Mainly, he said, this will provide an opportunity for the Gators to get players performing at a high level. It has been a challenge all year has the team encouraged that it can make a run. Were not really trying to think of it as more important of a match. SEC Tour nament is big, but its really just another match or two or however many to prepare us for the NCAA Tournament, he said. I dont think the team will be in an extraor dinary amount of stress. Well just want to make a push in NCAAs.

SERIES BEGINS TODAY AT 4 P.M. AT SEASHOLE PRESSLY STADIUM. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer A loss to Florida Inter national wouldnt derail Florida from its postseasonbound track. But it would hurt nonetheless. This season, the Gators have dropped games to instate rivals South Florida and UCF. And although UFs record against Florida teams is still a respectable 4-2, losing any of its games against FIU starting today at 4 p.m. would be disappointing. Freshman Lauren Haeger knows the sting of losing to an in-state school, having dropped her start against the Bulls on March 28. That loss is UFs only at home this season, and she said it would be a big deal to even lose one game to the Panthers. Were supposed to win, Haeger said. We cant say, Oh, its OK that we lost a game. Were going to take (FIU) seriously just like anyone else. When we do play our best, we can beat anyone, so I would be disappointed if we didnt win. We all expect a lot out of each other and I know coach (Tim Walton) expects a lot out of us, too. Haeger said it would be easy for her team to over look this series against FIU because it has no major implications on whats to come in the Southeastern Confer ence Tournament or NCAA Championships. But she doesnt want to let that happen. We looked over some teams this season already, some Florida teams, and let it happen again, Haeger said. Were really going to focus on this weekend. Yeah, we play LSU next week and Alabama and Kentucky in the future, but we are really going to focus on this weekend. Historically, the Gators have always had a dominating grip on in-state teams. Since 1997, Florida has chalked up a 128-40 record. The last time UF lost at least two games to Florida schools was 2006, when against Florida State, Stetson and Florida Atlantic. But the Gators have never been swept in a three-game series against a school from the state of Florida in their 16-year history. Junior Kelsey Horton would like to keep it that way. Our in-state rivals have been playing us pretty tough this season, Horton said. It wouldnt be a huge disappointment (to lose), but I dont think anyone wants to lose. So were going to play as hard as we can. You dont want to get nervous; you dont want to get anxious. Just stay loose and play softball. getting everyone to play well at the same time. The difference from the regular season, though, is the pressure. A lot of people play much differently when theres a lot of pressure, Carleton said. Thats where you really see the level. Postseason is the great equalizer. We all just have to play as a team. We have to come out and play strong in doubles. If we have all six guys playing, were tough to beat. We just have to all be there, all play well, and just get ready and not give the other team anything. Carleton also noted that rankings arent necessarily the best indicator of a teams postseason chances. For example, Florida could be ranked higher if not for losing close decisions against Kentucky and Geor gia. In the postseason, the Gators know that those losses could easily be turned into wins. (The rankings) arent arbitrary, but just because a team ranked No. 3 is playing a team ranked No. 15 in the tournament, it doesnt mean the No. 3 is a guaranteed win, he said. Tennis, even though its a team sport in college, its an individual court. Anything is possible in tennis. The No. 3 women will be facing Tennessee at 7 p.m. in Oxford, Miss. The Gators will be searching for their third consecutive SEC tournament championship. 18, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 2012 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFreshman Lauren Haeger stands in the circle between pitches during the teams only home loss this season, a 4-1 defeat to USF on March 28.

JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Writer Amanda OLeary was simply driving home from work in the summer of 2008 when she saw something she had never seen before: girls playing lacrosse in Gainesville. While she had been hired to start the Florida womens lacrosse program, the Gators were still two years and OLeary was unaware the sport had a youth presence locally. By chance, she had stumbled upon a summer practice put on by Buchholz coaches Ian and Lynn Millinoff. I had never seen that in this area, OLeary said. Of course I got really excited, made a U-turn, parked in the parking lot, came over and introduced myself. The couple was just in its second year of coaching lacrosse and was more than happy to oblige when OLeary asked if she could help out and give the kids some pointers. She taught the girls for about a half an hour and it was fantastic, Ian said. They learned more in that half hour than it took us two years to teach them. While lacrosse is spreading to most high schools in the area, no program has made a deep run in the state playoffs. program at the private Oak Hall School, none are grooming a potential Division I prospect like OLearys daughter Madison. But the girls program at Oak Hall might not exist yet if it were not for the OLearys. Madison played in a middle school league started by the Millinoffs, but she wanted to continue playing lacrosse in high school. With limited options in the area, she and her mom approached the Oak Hall administration about forming a program, and the school supported the idea. Local coaches agree OLearys ville-area player to make it big at the next level, but UF has yet to recruit any player from the area and has just three in-state players on its roster. wealth of talent in their state, only 12 percent of the Gators roster is from Florida. Sixty-one percent of the No. 2 Oranges roster is comprised of players from New York while 62 percent of No. 4 Terrapins roster is from in state. The University of Florida is the OLeary said. I think if you can build a roster with Florida players I think that would be something we would look to do. I would be all for it. The biggest reason for the disparity of in-state talent between Florida and the northern schools is the amount of opportunities to play high school and club lacrosse. Florida has two high-level club programs, while Maryland has more than 20. At the high school level, Florida has 113 programs, or one per 18,062 girls under the age of 18. Maryland has 196 programs, or one per 3,488 girls under 18. It would be a huge help, OLeary said of the possibility of being able to recruit the area. Those opportunities are going to afford themselves to these young women sooner rather than later. Eastside High boys coach Chuck Rogan and girls coach Amber Tomassi said for talent in the area to improve a feeder system a club program that has the ability to travel around the country to play top-level competition needs to be established. Rogan said players have not been able to improve enough to be recruited by Division I programs such as Florida due to the lack of quality competition. Its absolutely exploding and going viral, Rogan said of lacrosse in Gainesville. The other side of the coin is, there is a ceiling without feeder programs. Paul McCord has already installed the blueprint for how Gainesville lacrosse can raise its ceiling. An assistant womens coach at Jacksonville University and father of Florida freshman attacker Taylor McCord, Paul started growing the sport at the middle and high school levels in the area with the help of his wife Mindy, JUs head coach. When interest grew enough at the middle school level, the McCords started Lax Maniax, a girls club lacrosse program with teams for middleand high-school age girls. What that did was it provided them with tremendous experience playing against the Long Island teams, the Maryland teams, Paul said. He added that Lax Maniax has taken more than 50 trips to New York and Maryland with at least 1,000 kids from Florida. Taylor played at Bartram Trail High in Jacksonville, a program that was also started by her parents. Several of her teammates also played with her on Lax Maniax. She said that Bartram Trail saw a marked improvement in its performance once ence at the club level. If youre not interested in playing in college, then just play high school, Taylor said. But if you are interested in playing in college you team. While the addition of a club program would help, OLeary thinks the high schools are close to producing players she can recruit. Ive seen just in the course of watching Madison play in that league the improvement has been tremendous, OLeary said. I dont think were real far away. FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 19Brett Le Blanc / Alligator Staff LACROSSE FEATUREOLeary, Gators helping establish breeding ground for local lacrosse JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer The Gators want revenge. But it wont come easy. In its biggest game of the season to date, No. 5 Florida (14-2, 4-0 American Lacrosse Conference) will look to upset No. 1 Northwestern (14-0, 4-0) on the road Saturday and take the conference regular-season championship for the second year in a row. Last time we played they did beat us, so I think there is a little bit of a revenge coming, junior attacker Kitty Cullen said. And last time we were there we got killed, In 2011, Florida defeated No. 2 Northwestern in Gainesville, 13-11, to capture its the eventual-champion Wildcats evened the nament with a 10-9 win. Coach Amanda OLeary said Northwestern has improved since the end of last year, when it defeated Maryland in the national championship. Ultimately, we have a little bit more successful against them last year, OLeary said. But they also know [Northwestern] is a totally different team Their players are a year older, and they didnt really lose any from last year. six scorers, including senior attacker and 2011 Tewaaraton Award winner Shannon Smith and 2011 IWLCA Division I Defender of the Year Taylor Thornton. This is a stacked team, OLeary said. Northwestern prefers to play a highpressure defense in which it double-teams whoever has the ball at any point on the matchup last season, as Cullen scored six goals while consistently beating the double teams. However, the Wildcats changed defenses in the conference tournament game. I was sometimes face guarded, sometimes wasnt, Cullen said. They just kind of packed in a little more instead of running out at us so fast. OLeary said she expects the Wildcats to come out aggressively on defense to start, but added that their ability to defend in multiple ways makes them tough to beat. She keeps you guessing, OLeary said of Northwestern coach Kelly Hiller. Shes a fantastic coach. Although junior transfer Gabi Wiegand Wildcats, she is well aware of the magnitude of Saturdays showdown. I know since Florida beat Northwestern last year its going to be a huge game, Wiegand said. Both teams look at it as a rivalry. While she stressed the importance of UF not getting ahead of itself and preparing one game at a time, Wiegand also said she recognized the impact beating Northwestern could have on the Gators going forward. dence, Wiegand said, and send a message to all the other teams that we are here to win a national championship.Fifth-ranked Florida looking for redemption at No. 1 NorthwesternThe Wildcats won last meeting I think both teams look at it as a rivalry.UF junior attacker

20, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 2012 BASEbBALL TOM GREENAlligator Staff Writer Florida knew a rough stretch was coming, even before the season began. The Gators are no strangers to midseason lulls they had an 8-8 stretch that spanned from the end of season, too they just had to brace for it and weather the storm again this season. We knew at the beginning of the year it was going to happen at some Tucker said. The key was just to get out of it as soon as we could I think were doing a great job of turning it around so far. games to seemingly end the rut, No. 5 Florida (29-8, 9-6 Southeastern Conference) will look to keep the momentum rolling this weekend in a series against Georgia (23-15, 7-8 SEC), starting tonight at 7. Since a loss to Ole Miss on March 30 marked the beginning of Floridas slump, the Gators have employed nine different lineups in 11 games in search of the right recipe to cure their midseason woes. Turns out the solution to the problem rested with juniors Nolan Fontana and Brian Johnson, who have keyed UFs recent turnaround by getting out of their own slumps at the plate. After a 5-for-36 funk dropped Fontana from the leadoff spot in the Gators order following the series opener against Ole Miss, the shortstop has been on a tear. He has hit .450 since and worked his way back to the top of the or der. Instead of the ball looking like it does, it looks a little bigger, like a grapefruit, Fontana said. I feel like things are going well and were starting to click offensively altogether. That includes Johnson, who is 10 after hitting 9 for 45 (.200) in his previous 13 appearances in the batting order. Theyve done an outstanding job, especially since the lineup hasnt been swinging it too well as of late, Tucker said. Theyve really stepped up from the bottom third of the lineup and working their way up. Theyre doing a great job of producing runs, scoring guys when we need them to. Thats a big part of our success right now. If the Gators want that success to continue through this weekend, southpaw Alex Wood (5-1, 2.61 ERA) in the series opener. Florida has often times struggled against left-handed pitchers, and Wood provides another stiff challenge. In his last three starts, against ranked SEC opponents Kentucky, Arkansas and Ole Miss, Wood is 2-0, tossing 22.2 innings and striking out 23 while giving up an aver age of three runs per outing. Floridas weekend rotation, on the other hand, is still looking to return to form. The Gators will start righty Jonathon Crawford tonight, with Johnson taking the mound Saturday and Hudson Randall returning to since the Ole Miss series. Their starting pitching is really good, Tucker said. [Wood is] an outstanding prospect, great arm, left-handed pitcher. Hes going to be tough to beat. Hopefully our starting pitching will do a great job of getting us deep into the game and not giving up a whole lot of runs.

[Its] another opportunity to compete at home in front of our home crowd, but always excited about a chance to honor coach Jones, who meant so much to this program from a lot of standpoints, coach Mike Holloway said. Not only was Jones a mentor to the some of Holloways teaching methods. He also helped me understand that every athlete is different. You dont train everybody exactly the same, Holloway said. Sometimes we as coaches get caught up in This is the way I train and either coach, you have to understand that each athlete has their own different quirks.

KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Writer Its not often that Floridas golf team heads into a tournament without any knowledge of the course, but thats the exact problem the womens team will face this weekend. As the Gators head to Fayetteville, Ark., in hopes of winning their ninth Southeastern Conference title, they will be competing at Blessings Golf Club, a course that nobody on the team, not even coach Jan Dowling, has played before. Ive never been there. No one on our team has been there. So that makes our practice round as important as any practice round can be, Dowling said. Weve got to learn a lot of information in just 18 holes of golf. In addition to the practice round, Dowling believes that her teams reduction in high scores will be a key factor in having a good performance this weekend. During the Allstate Sugar Bowl Collegiate Classic at the end of February, Florida was the only team that went two out of three rounds without any players carding a double-bogey, according to Dowling. Dowling said. It meant that were managing the golf course very well, it meant that our short games were very good [and] it meant that our team was making very good decisions out there.
