THE EXTENDED HOURS BEGAN SUNDAY AND WILL RUN THROUGH MAY 4. SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator WriterAll-day study fests dont have to end with classes: Students can study in campus libraries through May 4. Library West will remain open 24 hours a day until May 4, when it will close at 6 p.m. Marston Science Library will have extended hours, too. The hours started Sunday. Marston will stay open from 8 a.m. to 4 a.m. until May 2. On May 3, it will stay open from 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. and on May 4 it will stay open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. In previous semesters, the library was open until 4 a.m. and then closed for a few hours, said Patrick Reakes, chairman of Library West. He said it didnt make sense to close the library when the early-morning time is busy. It just seemed to make sense for the students, he said. Library West has had extended hours all semester. consistent, Reakes said. He said last week about 300 people were in the building at 2 a.m., 200 were at 3 a.m. and 125 were there at 4 a.m. Library Spokeswoman Barbara Hood said Contact Samantha Shavell at sshavell@alligator. org.Library West to stay open 24 hours a day SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator WriterGov. Rick Scott signed a bill that will let UF exceed a 5 percent limit on bonds on a student fee to the renovation and expansion of the Reitz Union. The Student Activity and Service Fee is a fee students pay per credit hour each semester, along with tuition. State university boards of trustees are required to establish the fee, which cannot increase by more than 5 percent each year. This new bill, signed Friday, grants UF an exception for the Reitz Union. The fee already increases by 5 percent each year, which was the maximum until Scott signed the bill. Last month, the UF Board of Trustees approved issuing $50 million in bonds for the expansion of the Reitz Union, pending Scotts signature. Reitz Union Board of Managers Chairman Sean Fahy said the campaign to renovate and expand started last year. He said about 5,000 students signed an initiative. Former UF Sen. Jonathan Ossip said students voted against a new fee in Spring 2010 elections. It just seems unfair to students who are trying to make ends meet, he said. He said this is essentially creating a new fee anyway. The renovations and expansions are estimated to cost about $70 million, Fahy said. Fahy said a team compiled of members from the Board of Managers and the Make it Reitz campaign will start looking at potential designs and getting student input. pen, Fahy said.

A SENATOR ANNOUNCED HIS IDEA TO RENAME THE REITZ UNION. SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator WriterTwo bills that will restructure the executive branch of Student Government unanimously passed approval at Tuesday nights Student Senate meeting. The Agency Reorganization Act and the Cabinet Reorganization weeks meeting. Agencies are more programming, and cabinets deal with programs for groups of students. The Cabinet Reorganization Act passed unanimously after two amendments. Sen. Daniel Landes berg proposed adding a clause that makes each cabinet secretary responsible for submitting a status report to the Student Body president and the Senate president once a semester. Its a great way to make sure people are doing their job, Landesberg said after the meeting. After the meeting, Sen. Carly Wilson said the amendment was a compromise. She said she wanted reports done once a month. She also amended the clause to say that the reports are due one week after spring and fall elec tions. The Senate also amended the bill to add a secretary of satellite affairs. Before the amendment, the bill proposed to have a secretary of family, graduate and satellite affairs. During public debate, Sen. Ford Dwyer unveiled his fall initiative to change the name of the Reitz Union. The Reitz Union was named whose name was linked to an antigay purge at UF, Dwyer said. Dwyer said he is proposing to change the name to the Virgil Hawkins Student Union. He said Hawkins, a black man, was in a decade-long court battle trying to gain admission to the Fredric G. Levin College of Law. He eventually made a deal with the univer sity and withdrew his application for the integration of UF graduate programs. I encourage a new name on the unions new face, Dwyer said. The meeting also unanimously passed a bill honoring UF Board of Trustees Chairman Carlos Alfonso for his 11 years of service to UF and a resolution supporting the creation of a crosswalk for Jennings Hall.

Well, we just keep chasing. All UF students should stand up to cutsFirst, they came for the Computer and Information Science and Engineering Department. But we must speak out, even if we are not computer scientists. Thankfully, Im not the only one speaking out on something causing UF to be the target of recent nationwide criticism. Facing budget cuts, UF is planning to do some serious damage to the CISE department. The university plans to move all of CISEs degree programs, most advising staff and many other faculty members to other departments. Other CISE staff will be eliminated. The story was picked up by Steven Salzberg and published by Forbes, which made the story a hit nationwide. Harsh criticism about the proposed changes has poured in from around the country. Notably, professor Zvi Galil, dean of computing at Georgia Tech, sent a public letter to UF President Bernie Machen that said he was amazed, shocked and angered at the reckless proposal. lies on computer science and information technology in some way, and for economic and technological reasons, the CISE is the last department that should have its funding cut. But this budget crisis highlights a recent history of funding issues at UF. UF administrators are facing tough budget constraints. During my time at UF, every year has brought some new budget challenge. Even if the proposed CISE changes were withdrawn, a similar battle would have to be fought next year. This is the constant battle at UF: Budget cuts come in from the state, or we face some other funding issue that results in small cuts made in many departments. These small cuts have huge long-term effects on the quality of the departments and push us away from excellence and toward mediocrity. In this case, its much more than a small cut, and it will likely make the prominent CISE department irrelevant. All students should oppose the drastic changes proposed for the CISE department. We cant accept near eliminations of entire departments because year. Instead, students and staff should demand the CISE department survive this year without any major restructuring. Then we have to focus on developing new ways to fund UFs many departments, at the state level and otherwise. If you are from another department, you might wonder why you should care about the changes to the CISE department, especially because the CISE cuts were proposed to prevent damage to other (your) departments. But wont similar budget troubles be faced next year? And doesnt inaction now set a precedent of tolerance for other drastic department cuts? And might the cuts then affect your department? Theres no hiding the effects of budget cuts. Weve couple of years; if action isnt taken now, were going to have a tough time staying on the road to academic excellence. And were certainly going to have trouble if the goverhas a nasty history with education funding, and he clearly shows little care in this matter for his constituency, because Floridians care about education. views on education. But in the meantime, all students should oppose drastic, rash budget cuts to the CISE department. A precedent for the entire university is at stake.

ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterA Gainesville movie theater abruptly shut down about two months ago and has yet to reopen. In the ticket window of Gator Cinemas, off West Newberry Road next to the Oaks Mall, sits an 8-by-12-inch sign with these words: Renovations are underway. Please bear with us. They are typed next to a cartoon grizzly bear. The majority of tenants in the complex said there have not been any signs of life at the theater since it closed about two months ago. One day they were putting up new movies on the marquee, and a week later they were closed, said Katrina Bass, an emthe theater. Some of the theaters employees used to eat at the deli, Bass said. After it closed, the employees offered the theaters remaining boxes of candy to nearby Jasons Deli workers. Bass said she asked the employees who delivered the candy if the theater was reopening. She said they told her it was closed for good. The doors to the theater were unlocked Tuesday afternoon, but nobody was inside. Despite the dust piling up on the counters and cobwebs entangled in the popcorn machines, the place still looked like a movie theater. Three of the four theaters aisles were still lit. A 6-foot movie poster of Jump Street and Men in Black III still hung from the ceiling, and other smaller posters lined the walls. Boxes to dispose used 3-D glasses still stood in the hallways. Virginia Fisher, a representative for the complexs landlord company, Southern Management and Development LLC, said she was told not to comment on the situation at Gator Cinemas. She said she did not know if the theater was reopening. The phone at Gator Cinemas has been disconnected, and the manager could not be reached. Nobody really knows whats going on, said Danielle Parker, owner of Family Christian Stores, located next to the theater. One day they were here. The next day they were gone. And we havent seen anyone there since. New owners took over Gator Cinemas in January 2010, according to Florida Department of State Corporations. The owner lives in New York.

Gator Cinemas mysteriously closes curtains for the last time INTEREST RATES WILL JUMP FROM 3.4 PERCENT TO 6.8 PERCENT IF CONGRESS DOESNT INTERVENE. MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WriterWith the Republican Party elections winding down, President Barack Obama is pushing forward with his reelection campaign by connecting with university and college students the demographic largely credited for his 2008 election. In a conference call with student reporters Tuesday from Air Force One, Obama discussed a measure to keep student loan interest rates low. He spoke for several minutes and directed questions to staff afterward. The rates are set to double in July because a congressional measure that passed in 2007 is set to expire then. The measure kept rates low, but they will jump from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent if Congress does not intervene, said Cecilia Muoz, deputy assistant to the president. The White House is asking for a oneyear extension to the measure. The average college student who takes out loans graduates with $25,000 a year in debt, Obama said. Ive always believed that we should be doing everything we can to help put higher education within reach for every single American student, Obama said. Its never been more important. Unfortunately, its never been more expensive. If Congress doesnt extend the measure, there isnt much the president can do to lower the rates, Muoz said. Unfortunately, it requires legislative authority to keep the rates low, Muoz said. We continue to believe the people here in Washington will listen to the voices of their constituents.

16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25, 2012LOCAL MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WriterTwo ongoing court cases involving Gainesville residents highlight potential issues about how much information realtors should tell buyers about the Cabot/Koppers Superfund site. ejo in April 2011 accuses her realtors, Robert and Robin Evans, and Bosshardt Realty Services, of concealing knowledge about the Superfund site when she purchased the house. The case will go to trial in the fall. The second case, a foreclosure on property owned by Gainesville resident Clara Bea Horton, will not go to trial by jury. The Cabot/Koppers Superfund site is an environmentally toxic site in Northeast Gainesville. Two companies, Cabot Inc. and Koppers Inc., used improper methods to dispose of hazardous chemicals. Now, the soil and water at and around the site are contaminated. Licensed real estate agents are required by state law to disclose all known facts that materially affect the value of residential real property and are not readily observable to the buyer. However, Superfund sites are not Sandi Copes Poreda, spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, wrote in an email. A representative from Bosshardt Realty Services said the organization cannot comment on an ongoing court case. did not know her home, at 444 NW 30th Ave., was less than 100 feet from the western boundary of the Cabot/Koppers Superfund site when she signed in 2004. She learned about the site in 2009 when the Florida Department of Health sent letters to neighbors to tell them about the site and the health hazards associated with the contaminants. The lawsuit states the realtors knew about the Superfund site but did not disclose that information to the buyer. at the house, the sellers gave her a property disclosure form that identhe property. Asbestos siding was the only item noted. her contract and to get compensated for damage. Bosshardt Realty Services and the noted realtors responded in court documents, saying they deny all allegations. Documents state the damage third parties over which the defendants have no responsibility, duty, domain or control. In the second case, Horton asked the court to set aside the sale of her house because the nearby Super fund site made it essentially worthless. The dispute is based on the fact that the property is within the area of contamination from the Koppers Superfund site. Accordingly, the property is at best valueless and may represent a virtually unlimited CERCLA liability, court documents state. Horton said she was not told about the site before she bought her home in 2005. She learned about it in about 2008. Had she been told about the site, she said she would have never bought that house. The U.S. Department of Enviclared the Cabot/Koppers site a Superfund site in 1984. After that point, Horton said, there was an exodus of people from the neighborhood, and the people site. None of these people have ever ing that can be done about it, she said.

CLARE LENNONAlligator Staff WriterWhen Shira Reid shows people around her workplace, she makes sure to introduce them to Iris. Iris is smart and outgoing, and she and Reid could chat all day. When they get excited, their voices rise like 13-year-old girls at a school dance. Iris wraps her tail around the wire of her habitat cage, raises her eyebrows and rocks from side to side. Reid, 28, is a caregiving apprentice at Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary. On weekends, she gives tours. On Saturday, she turned and explained to a tour group that Iris, a brown capuchin monkey, The group stood for another minute, then moved on to see more of the 155 monkeys housed there. The Gainesville nonsanctuary. Jungle Friends takes in former pets, lab testing subjects and circus monkeys and gives them a forever home. But after two more habitats are built, the Jungle Friends staff will have maxed out its 12 acres of land, and people want it to take more monkeys. They have to build the habitats 100 feet in from the property lines, said Lee Ward, 56, the sanctuarys head caregiver. The neighbors dont want monkeys throwing biscuits at them or waking them up with early-morning chattering. Kari Bagnall, 58, who founded Jungle Friends in 1998, said recently is going to the two habitats being built on the current grounds. door heat lamps, medical expenses and food. Marmosets alone have a breakfast bowl of fruits, vegetables, rice or cereal, soup and canned marmoset food and theyre only 8 inches long from head to toe. That size doesnt matter, though, when theyre leaping across the cage for food. One of the marmosets nibbled on a raisin-sized chunk of citrus. The monkeys peered up like they were sizing up the passersby. Some of them climbed to eye level, and they reached Jungle Friends workers. Theyre so human, Bagnall said, that people think they can be the child a couple is missing. Breeders say they make great pets, and people want to raise them from infancy. You just type in monkey on Google and you get all those pet monkey sites, she said. The pet industry was what got Jungle Friends started in monkey named Samantha. The brown capuchin attached her self to her owners arm. Bagnall had to teach the monkey to switch arms so she could get dressed every morning. Im sure theres a 12-step program for that, she joked. Bagnall eventually left the boyfriend but kept the monkey. Samanthas sister, Charlotte, who was with a breeder. Bagnall couldnt afford to buy Charlotte, so she helped care for the monkeys in exchange for Charlotte. From there, she started collecting exotic animals, but Bagnall eventually decided to limit herself to monkeys. Internet research indicated that the humidity in Gainesville would be better for the monkeys than the dry heat of her home in Las Vegas, so Bagnall sold almost everything she owned to make the move and start Jungle Friends. It wasnt much in the beginning. In 1998, 13 monkeys were installed in four makeshift habitats meant for storing corn. But over the years, more people heard about the institute, more workers came, and Ward moved from Texas after a few years of traveling between her home and the preserve in Gainesville. Ward and her partner now live in a small, one-story house, a her own smaller private sanctuary, Koreymonde Capuchin white-faced capuchin. Korey has since been joined by 20 other white-faced capuchins and a 15-year-old goose named Abby. Between the two monkey sanctuaries, though, lie 20 acres of erty for Jungle Friends before someone else snatches it up, she could have more living space for interns, room for expansion and easy access to Koreymonde. They could bring in more monkeys, and Bagnall said her ultimate goal is to see animals out of research and monkeys out of the pet trade. But in the short term, this land could make a big difference for Jungle Friends. Even if she couldnt afford to build, Bagnall could hold on to the land until she has more money. She could eventually build an on-site veterinary clinic and maybe get equipment donated. She could save lives and give a home to monkeys that have never had them. But she needs help.

Monkey sanctuary needs financial help to expand facility THE ASSOCIATED PRESSNEW ORLEANS Federal prosecutors in the Deepwater Horizon disaster, accusing Kurt Mix, a former BP engineer, of destroying evidence by deleting more than 300 text meswell in the Gulf of Mexico was spewing far more crude oil than the company was telling the public. Here are some questions and answers about Mix, the charges and the investigation. Q: Who is Mix? A: Mix, of Katy, Texas, was a drilling and completions project engineer for BP. He worked on estimating the amount of oil spewing from the blown-out well and was involved in efforts to stop the gusher, notably a procedure known as a top kill. The top kill method involved pumping heavy mud into the well head to cap it. Though BP had high hopes it would work, it ultimately failed when the immense pressure of oil and natural gas escaping the well could not be overcome by the mud. Q: What is Mix accused of doing? A: Mix has been charged with two counts of obstruction of justice and faces up to 20 cused of deleting more than 200 messages sent to a BP supervisor from his iPhone in October 2010 containing information about how much oil was spilling out and then erased 100 more the following year after receiving numerous legal notices from BP to preserve the information. surrendered his passport and can only travel between Louisiana and Texas. His next court appearance is scheduled for May 3. His attor ney declined to comment after the hearing. Q: Why did the charges come two years after the spill, and will they impact the civil settlement? A: The arrest is part of a criminal investigation launched June 1, 2010, by the Justice Department, a probe that is still ongoing. The charges are not likely to affect the proposed class-action settlement that would resolve more than 100,000 claims by people and businesses who blame economic losses over the spill. billion to resolve these claims, but the agreement doesnt resolve any claims by the Gulf states or the Justice Department, which launched civil and criminal probes following the spill. A judge is set Wednesday to consider preliminary approval of the class-action settlement. Q: Are more arrests expected? A: Its not clear, but Attorney General Eric charges in its investigation, signaling more charges are likely to come. The Justice Department said the investigation into Mix and other matters concerning the Deepwater Horizon disaster is ongoing. David Uhlmann, a University of Michigan law professor who was chief of the Justice Departments environmental crimes section, what will be multiple criminal charges. It could be the sign that the government believes there was a more far-reaching coverup about the size of the spill, he said. Q: The arrest involved what happened after the spill. What about any wrongdoing before the explosion on the rig? A: During Congressional hearings in the months after the oil spill, executives of BP PLC and other companies working with them were grilled about what they knew and when before the explosion, so there is little doubt investigators are looking into this as well.Questions, answers about arrest in Gulf of Mexico oil spillFormer BP engineer was released on $100K bail It could be the sign that the gov ernment believes there was a more far-reaching cover-up about the size of the spill.David UhlmannUniversity of Michigan law professorCRITTERS

26, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25, 2012 FEATURE ELI MARGERAlligator Writer Lauren Embree has always said that watching is 10 times worse than playing. But down 4-0 to Stanfords Mallory Bur dette in the third set of a match that would decide the 2010-11 national championship, Embree had her doubts. So did her best friend, standing courtside. Minutes earlier, Joanna Mather had lost her match and, she thought, potentially the national championship. Floridas hopes rested on Embrees small yet powerful shoulders. Mather was shaking from the cold. Her best friend was shaking from nerves. Roland Thornqvist has a philosophy about doubles teams. The tall, Swedish head coach of the Gators has stuck by his belief that best friends dont necessarily make the best doubles teams. With a 270-31 record as coach, its hard to challenge Thornqvists beliefs. I dont like to do that because they see enough of each other, he said. Sometimes when you play and you would lose, itd create some drama. But with Embree and Mather, he made an exception. sive, perhaps they were too good of friends, but their record speaks for itself, he said. Although Embree and Mather quickly became friends upon Embrees arrival in the summer of 2009, they were not doubles partners initially and wouldnt play together in a match until April of that season. In 2010, the spring of Embrees freshman year, she was playing with Anastasia Revzina, a senior. The duo was fantastic, going 14-2 during the dual match season. Mather played with Caroline Hitimana and Claire Bartlett, going a combined 10-3 with those pairings. But before the April 9 match against Tennessee, Thornqvist made a switch. We found that they really communicated, and thats really the key to any pairing, he said. They complement each other where Joanna is very powerful, Lauren has a lot of courage and likes to move off of Joannas pace. From there, the duo of Embree and Mather has been as dominant as any doubles team in the country. They have won 45 of 46 matches, including a perfect 20-0 record this season. Its been almost two years since they lost to Mississippis Gabby Rangel and Connor Vogel. As important as their complementary tennis styles are, Embree, Mather and Thornqvist all agree that chemistry is the most vital part of their success. As they have grown on the court both in singles and doubles, they have grown closer together. Now, they are best friends and roommates. They can often be seen interacting on Twitter, with Embree (@lembree888) and Mather (@JoMather1) exchanging pictures, jokes and encouragement. At times, the girls said, they have an almost telepathic ability to know where the other one will be. Most of the time, I know what Lauren is going to do, what balls shes going to cross on, or whether shes going to try to lob or hit the ball, Mather said. Said Embree: Shes pretty athletic, so if she does something weird, I know somehow itll go in. Because weve been playing with each other for so long, I think we both know whats going to happen. Sometimes we dont even call plays. If all goes well, Embree and Mather have six team matches remaining. Next month, they will likely have the opportunity to help No. 2 UF win its second consecutive national title. That certainly wont be the end of their friendship, but it will be the end of their doubles partnership as Gators. Mather will graduate in May with a degree in management. She plans to pursue tennis professionally before going to graduate school down the road. Im not ready for a job yet, she said with a laugh. she will be a senior leader of a Florida team that will have the talent to again compete for a national title. a new doubles partner. As soon as Embree won the next two games against Bur dette, Mather knew the direction of the match had changed. When she won those two games at 4-2, Mallory started making more mistakes and Lauren was just so solid, and I just remember thinking Laurens got this. Embree won four of the next six games, throwing the match into a deadlock. Two of the nations top players were going They went back and forth, on mini-runs and mini-collapses. Leading 7-6, Embree was returning serve. After a rally, Burdette loaded up to deliver a forehand. It sailed wide. Out. During the celebration that followed, Embree eventually found Mather, crying. That led her to tears as well. It was a feeling unlike anything they had ever felt. Looking back on how hard our team worked and how hard we pushed each other and stayed together as a team meant so much to all of us, Embree said. Just being able to trust each other and trust ourselves and then everything paying off, Mather said. It was amazing.Dominant partnership coming to close for Embree, MatherElizabeth Hamilton / AlligatorUF tennis players Joanna Mather, front, and Lauren Embree compete in a match against Ole Miss on March 25.

wasnt fair. They sued. Thats how I know where the bullet entered Moms brain, how she fell to the ground. Carla and Tracis lawyer thought it would be a good idea to show us pictures and diagrams, explaining the scene like something out of a bad episode of CSI. It could be a setup, they said. There could have been a third person, they said. How do we know Matt or his brother didnt do it, they asked. This is family? This is what loved ones do? For years after, those memories have haunted me. They still do. After questioning my future, questioning the meaning of family and my own self-worth, I pushed through the pain and put in the work to get to where I am today graduating from the only university I have ever wanted to attend as the sports editor of one of the best student newspapers around.

Mom deserved to see her son become a success, whether she could truly see it or not. Throughout my two years at the Alligator, I have been the punchline of joke after joke about my age. Some of you knew why I was such an old bastard. Some didnt. But none of you ever treated me differently because of it.

Junior Austin Maddox was sent down to the bullpen at one point, but none of UFs leading relief pitchers was used. Florida had an ideal opportunity in the ninth with two outs and the bases loaded for Zunino. He grounded out to shortstop Kyle Teaf on a 1-2 count to end the game. We didnt do a good job at all as an entire lineup, Fontana said. We were jumping out of our stances a little bit. The win snapped a 12-game losing streak against the Gators for the lost to South Florida since OSullivan became coach. The Gators now move forward to another midweek game tonight at 7 against Bethune-Cookman. OSullivan said sophomore Karsten Whitson will get the start with an uncertain pitch-count limit. We gotta get him going, simple as that, OSullivan said. Were going to need him down the stretch. BASEBALL, from page 27Moultrie drives in winning run in Game 1 With the hit, UFs lone senior collected her seventh game-winning RBI on the year, which is second only to Lauren Haegers nine. Florida (42-6, 19-3 Southeastern Conference) won 2-1, but dropped the second game, 1-0, to No. 23 LSU (33-16, 14-8 SEC). Once again, the pitching for both teams dominated. The only difference was that LSU scored in the second rather than waiting until the seventh. The Tigers took a 1-0 lead into the sixth when Gammel, again with the bases loaded and two outs. But Gammel couldnt come through and instead grounded out. Different pitcher, different outcome, Gammel said. the way we wanted to.

Rick Scott signed a bill that will let UF exceed a 5 percent limit on bonds on a student fee to the renovation and expansion of the Reitz Union. The Student Activity and Service Fee is a fee students pay per credit hour each semester, along with tuition. State university boards of trustees are required to establish the fee, which cannot increase by more than 5 percent each year. This new bill, signed Friday, grants UF an exception for the Reitz Union. The fee already increases by 5 percent each year, which was the maximum until Scott signed the bill. Last month, the UF Board of Trustees approved issuing $50 million in bonds for the expansion of the Reitz Union, pending Scotts signature. Reitz Union Board of Managers Chairman Sean Fahy said the campaign to renovate and expand started last year. He said about 5,000 students signed an initiative. Former UF Sen. Jonathan Ossip said students voted against a new fee in Spring 2010 elections. It just seems unfair to students who are trying to make ends meet, he said. He said this is essentially creating a new fee anyway. The renovations and expansions are estimated to cost about $70 million, Fahy said.

A SENATOR ANNOUNCED HIS IDEA TO RENAME THE REITZ UNION. SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator WriterTwo bills that will restructure the executive branch of Student Government unanimously passed approval at Tuesday nights Student Senate meeting. The Agency Reorganization Act and the Cabinet Reorganization weeks meeting. Agencies are more programming, and cabinets deal with programs for groups of students. The Cabinet Reorganization Act passed unanimously after two amendments. Sen. Daniel Landesberg proposed adding a clause that makes each cabinet secretary responsible for submitting a status report to the Student Body president and the Senate president once a semester. Its a great way to make sure people are doing their job, Landesberg said after the meeting. After the meeting, Sen. Carly Wilson said the amendment was a compromise. She said she wanted reports done once a month. She also amended the clause to say that the reports are due one week after spring and fall elec tions. The Senate also amended the bill to add a secretary of satellite affairs. Before the amendment, the bill proposed to have a secretary of family, graduate and satellite affairs. During public debate, Sen. Ford Dwyer unveiled his fall initiative to change the name of the Reitz Union. The Reitz Union was named whose name was linked to an antigay purge at UF, Dwyer said. Dwyer said he is proposing to change the name to the Virgil Hawkins Student Union. He said Hawkins, a black man, was in a decade-long court battle trying to gain admission to the Fredric G. Levin College of Law. He eventually made a deal with the university and withdrew his application for the integration of UF graduate programs. I encourage a new name on the unions new face, Dwyer said. The meeting also unanimously passed a bill honoring UF Board of Trustees Chairman Carlos Alfonso for his 11 years of service to UF and a resolution supporting the creation of a crosswalk for Jennings Hall.

The university plans to move all of CISEs degree programs, most advising staff and many other faculty members to other departments. Other CISE staff will be eliminated. The story was picked up by Steven Salzberg and published by Forbes, which made the story a hit nationwide. Harsh criticism about the proposed changes has poured in from around the country. Notably, professor Zvi Galil, dean of computing at Georgia Tech, sent a public letter to UF President Bernie Machen that said he was amazed, shocked and angered at the reckless proposal. lies on computer science and information technology in some way, and for economic and technological reasons, the CISE is the last department that should have its funding cut. But this budget crisis highlights a recent history of funding issues at UF. UF administrators are facing tough budget constraints. During my time at UF, every year has brought some new budget challenge. Even if the proposed CISE changes were withdrawn, a similar battle would have to be fought next year. This is the constant battle at UF: Budget cuts come in from the state, or we face some other funding issue that results in small cuts made in many departments. These small cuts have huge long-term effects on the quality of the departments and push us away from excellence and toward mediocrity. In this case, its much more than a small cut, and it will likely make the prominent CISE department irrelevant. All students should oppose the drastic changes proposed for the CISE department. We cant accept near eliminations of entire departments because year. Instead, students and staff should demand the CISE department survive this year without any major restructuring. Then we have to focus on developing new ways to fund UFs many departments, at the state level and otherwise. If you are from another department, you might wonder why you should care about the changes to the CISE department, especially because the CISE cuts were proposed to prevent damage to other (your) departments. But wont similar budget troubles be faced next year? And doesnt inaction now set a precedent of tolerance for other drastic department cuts? And might the cuts then affect your department? Theres no hiding the effects of budget cuts. Weve couple of years; if action isnt taken now, were going to have a tough time staying on the road to academic excellence. And were certainly going to have trouble if the goverhas a nasty history with education funding, and he clearly shows little care in this matter for his constituency, because Floridians care about education. views on education. But in the meantime, all students should oppose drastic, rash budget cuts to the CISE department. A precedent for the entire university is at stake.

ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterA Gainesville movie theater abruptly shut down about two months ago and has yet to reopen. In the ticket window of Gator Cinemas, off West Newberry Road next to the Oaks Mall, sits an 8-by-12-inch sign with these words: Renovations are underway. Please bear with us. They are typed next to a cartoon grizzly bear. The majority of tenants in the complex said there have not been any signs of life at the theater since it closed about two months ago. One day they were putting up new movies on the marquee, and a week later they were closed, said Katrina Bass, an emthe theater. Some of the theaters employees used to eat at the deli, Bass said. After it closed, the employees offered the theaters remaining boxes of candy to nearby Jasons Deli workers. Bass said she asked the employees who delivered the candy if the theater was reopening. She said they told her it was closed for good. The doors to the theater were unlocked Tuesday afternoon, but nobody was inside. Despite the dust piling up on the counters and cobwebs entangled in the popcorn machines, the place still looked like a movie theater. Three of the four theaters aisles were still lit. A 6-foot movie poster of Jump Street and Men in Black III still hung from the ceiling, and other smaller posters lined the walls. Boxes to dispose used 3-D glasses still stood in the hallways. Virginia Fisher, a representative for the complexs landlord company, Southern Management and Development LLC, said she was told not to comment on the situation at Gator Cinemas. She said she did not know if the theater was reopening. The phone at Gator Cinemas has been disconnected, and the manager could not be reached. Nobody really knows whats going on, said Danielle Parker, owner of Family Christian Stores, located next to the theater. One day they were here. The next day they were gone. And we havent seen anyone there since. New owners took over Gator Cinemas in January 2010, according to Florida Department of State Corporations. The owner lives in New York.

Gator Cinemas mysteriously closes curtains for the last time INTEREST RATES WILL JUMP FROM 3.4 PERCENT TO 6.8 PERCENT IF CONGRESS DOESNT INTERVENE. MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WriterWith the Republican Party elections winding down, President Barack Obama is pushing forward with his reelection campaign by connecting with university and college students the demographic largely credited for his 2008 election. In a conference call with student reporters Tuesday from Air Force One, Obama discussed a measure to keep student loan interest rates low. He spoke for several minutes and directed questions to staff afterward. The rates are set to double in July because a congressional measure that passed in 2007 is set to expire then. The measure kept rates low, but they will jump from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent if Congress does not intervene, said Cecilia Muoz, deputy assistant to the president. The White House is asking for a oneyear extension to the measure. The average college student who takes out loans graduates with $25,000 a year in debt, Obama said. Ive always believed that we should be doing everything we can to help put higher education within reach for every single American student, Obama said. Its never been more important. Unfortunately, its never been more expensive. If Congress doesnt extend the measure, there isnt much the president can do to lower the rates, Muoz said. Unfortunately, it requires legislative authority to keep the rates low, Muoz said. We continue to believe the people here in Washington will listen to the voices of their constituents.

16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25, 2012LOCAL MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WriterTwo ongoing court cases involving Gainesville residents highlight potential issues about how much information realtors should tell buyers about the Cabot/Koppers Superfund site. ejo in April 2011 accuses her realtors, Robert and Robin Evans, and Bosshardt Realty Services, of concealing knowledge about the Superfund site when she purchased the house. The case will go to trial in the fall. The second case, a foreclosure on property owned by Gainesville resident Clara Bea Horton, will not go to trial by jury. The Cabot/Koppers Superfund site is an environmentally toxic site in Northeast Gainesville. Two companies, Cabot Inc. and Koppers Inc., used improper methods to dispose of hazardous chemicals. Now, the soil and water at and around the site are contaminated. Licensed real estate agents are required by state law to disclose all known facts that materially affect the value of residential real property and are not readily observable to the buyer. However, Superfund sites are not Sandi Copes Poreda, spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, wrote in an email. A representative from Bosshardt Realty Services said the organization cannot comment on an ongoing court case. did not know her home, at 444 NW 30th Ave., was less than 100 feet from the western boundary of the Cabot/Koppers Superfund site when she signed in 2004. She learned about the site in 2009 when the Florida Department of Health sent letters to neighbors to tell them about the site and the health hazards associated with the contaminants. The lawsuit states the realtors knew about the Superfund site but did not disclose that information to the buyer. at the house, the sellers gave her a property disclosure form that identhe property. Asbestos siding was the only item noted. her contract and to get compensated for damage. Bosshardt Realty Services and the noted realtors responded in court documents, saying they deny all allegations. Documents state the damage third parties over which the defendants have no responsibility, duty, domain or control. In the second case, Horton asked the court to set aside the sale of her house because the nearby Super fund site made it essentially worthless. The dispute is based on the fact that the property is within the area of contamination from the Koppers Superfund site. Accordingly, the property is at best valueless and may represent a virtually unlimited CERCLA liability, court documents state. Horton said she was not told about the site before she bought her home in 2005. She learned about it in about 2008. Had she been told about the site, she said she would have never bought that house. The U.S. Department of Enviclared the Cabot/Koppers site a Superfund site in 1984. After that point, Horton said, there was an exodus of people from the neighborhood, and the people site. None of these people have ever ing that can be done about it, she said.

CLARE LENNONAlligator Staff WriterWhen Shira Reid shows people around her workplace, she makes sure to introduce them to Iris. Iris is smart and outgoing, and she and Reid could chat all day. When they get excited, their voices rise like 13-year-old girls at a school dance. Iris wraps her tail around the wire of her habitat cage, raises her eyebrows and rocks from side to side. Reid, 28, is a caregiving apprentice at Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary. On weekends, she gives tours. On Saturday, she turned and explained to a tour group that Iris, a brown capuchin monkey, The group stood for another minute, then moved on to see more of the 155 monkeys housed there. The Gainesville nonsanctuary. Jungle Friends takes in former pets, lab testing subjects and circus monkeys and gives them a forever home. But after two more habitats are built, the Jungle Friends staff will have maxed out its 12 acres of land, and people want it to take more monkeys. They have to build the habitats 100 feet in from the property lines, said Lee Ward, 56, the sanctuarys head caregiver. The neighbors dont want monkeys throwing biscuits at them or waking them up with early-morning chattering. Kari Bagnall, 58, who founded Jungle Friends in 1998, said recently is going to the two habitats being built on the current grounds. door heat lamps, medical expenses and food. Marmosets alone have a breakfast bowl of fruits, vegetables, rice or cereal, soup and canned marmoset food and theyre only 8 inches long from head to toe. That size doesnt matter, though, when theyre leaping across the cage for food. One of the marmosets nibbled on a raisin-sized chunk of citrus. The monkeys peered up like they were sizing up the passersby. Some of them climbed to eye level, and they reached Jungle Friends workers. Theyre so human, Bagnall said, that people think they can be the child a couple is missing. Breeders say they make great pets, and people want to raise them from infancy. You just type in monkey on Google and you get all those pet monkey sites, she said. The pet industry was what got Jungle Friends started in monkey named Samantha. The brown capuchin attached her self to her owners arm. Bagnall had to teach the monkey to switch arms so she could get dressed every morning. Im sure theres a 12-step program for that, she joked. Bagnall eventually left the boyfriend but kept the monkey. Samanthas sister, Charlotte, who was with a breeder. Bagnall couldnt afford to buy Charlotte, so she helped care for the monkeys in exchange for Charlotte. From there, she started collecting exotic animals, but Bagnall eventually decided to limit herself to monkeys. Internet research indicated that the humidity in Gainesville would be better for the monkeys than the dry heat of her home in Las Vegas, so Bagnall sold almost everything she owned to make the move and start Jungle Friends. It wasnt much in the beginning. In 1998, 13 monkeys were installed in four makeshift habitats meant for storing corn. But over the years, more people heard about the institute, more workers came, and Ward moved from Texas after a few years of traveling between her home and the preserve in Gainesville. Ward and her partner now live in a small, one-story house, a her own smaller private sanctuary, Koreymonde Capuchin white-faced capuchin. Korey has since been joined by 20 other white-faced capuchins and a 15-year-old goose named Abby. Between the two monkey sanctuaries, though, lie 20 acres of erty for Jungle Friends before someone else snatches it up, she could have more living space for interns, room for expansion and easy access to Koreymonde. They could bring in more monkeys, and Bagnall said her ultimate goal is to see animals out of research and monkeys out of the pet trade. But in the short term, this land could make a big difference for Jungle Friends. Even if she couldnt afford to build, Bagnall could hold on to the land until she has more money. She could eventually build an on-site veterinary clinic and maybe get equipment donated. She could save lives and give a home to monkeys that have never had them. But she needs help.

Monkey sanctuary needs financial help to expand facility THE ASSOCIATED PRESSNEW ORLEANS Federal prosecutors in the Deepwater Horizon disaster, accusing Kurt Mix, a former BP engineer, of destroying evidence by deleting more than 300 text meswell in the Gulf of Mexico was spewing far more crude oil than the company was telling the public. Here are some questions and answers about Mix, the charges and the investigation. Q: Who is Mix? A: Mix, of Katy, Texas, was a drilling and completions project engineer for BP. He worked on estimating the amount of oil spewing from the blown-out well and was involved in efforts to stop the gusher, notably a procedure known as a top kill. The top kill method involved pumping heavy mud into the well head to cap it. Though BP had high hopes it would work, it ultimately failed when the immense pressure of oil and natural gas escaping the well could not be overcome by the mud. Q: What is Mix accused of doing? A: Mix has been charged with two counts of obstruction of justice and faces up to 20 cused of deleting more than 200 messages sent to a BP supervisor from his iPhone in October 2010 containing information about how much oil was spilling out and then erased 100 more the following year after receiving numerous legal notices from BP to preserve the information. surrendered his passport and can only travel between Louisiana and Texas. His next court appearance is scheduled for May 3. His attor ney declined to comment after the hearing. Q: Why did the charges come two years after the spill, and will they impact the civil settlement? A: The arrest is part of a criminal investigation launched June 1, 2010, by the Justice Department, a probe that is still ongoing. The charges are not likely to affect the proposed class-action settlement that would resolve more than 100,000 claims by people and businesses who blame economic losses over the spill. billion to resolve these claims, but the agreement doesnt resolve any claims by the Gulf states or the Justice Department, which launched civil and criminal probes following the spill. A judge is set Wednesday to consider preliminary approval of the class-action settlement. Q: Are more arrests expected? A: Its not clear, but Attorney General Eric charges in its investigation, signaling more charges are likely to come. The Justice Department said the investigation into Mix and other matters concerning the Deepwater Horizon disaster is ongoing. David Uhlmann, a University of Michigan law professor who was chief of the Justice Departments environmental crimes section, what will be multiple criminal charges. It could be the sign that the government believes there was a more far-reaching coverup about the size of the spill, he said. Q: The arrest involved what happened after the spill. What about any wrongdoing before the explosion on the rig? A: During Congressional hearings in the months after the oil spill, executives of BP PLC and other companies working with them were grilled about what they knew and when before the explosion, so there is little doubt investigators are looking into this as well.Questions, answers about arrest in Gulf of Mexico oil spillFormer BP engineer was released on $100K bail It could be the sign that the gov ernment believes there was a more far-reaching cover-up about the size of the spill.David UhlmannUniversity of Michigan law professorCRITTeERS

26, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25, 2012 FEATURE ELI MARGERAlligator Writer Lauren Embree has always said that watching is 10 times worse than playing. But down 4-0 to Stanfords Mallory Bur dette in the third set of a match that would decide the 2010-11 national championship, Embree had her doubts. So did her best friend, standing courtside. Minutes earlier, Joanna Mather had lost her match and, she thought, potentially the national championship. Floridas hopes rested on Embrees small yet powerful shoulders. Mather was shaking from the cold. Her best friend was shaking from nerves. Roland Thornqvist has a philosophy about doubles teams. The tall, Swedish head coach of the Gators has stuck by his belief that best friends dont necessarily make the best doubles teams. With a 270-31 record as coach, its hard to challenge Thornqvists beliefs. I dont like to do that because they see enough of each other, he said. Sometimes when you play and you would lose, itd create some drama. But with Embree and Mather, he made an exception. sive, perhaps they were too good of friends, but their record speaks for itself, he said. Although Embree and Mather quickly became friends upon Embrees arrival in the summer of 2009, they were not doubles partners initially and wouldnt play together in a match until April of that season. In 2010, the spring of Embrees freshman year, she was playing with Anastasia Revzina, a senior. The duo was fantastic, going 14-2 during the dual match season. Mather played with Caroline Hitimana and Claire Bartlett, going a combined 10-3 with those pairings. But before the April 9 match against Tennessee, Thornqvist made a switch. We found that they really communicated, and thats really the key to any pairing, he said. They complement each other where Joanna is very powerful, Lauren has a lot of courage and likes to move off of Joannas pace. From there, the duo of Embree and Mather has been as dominant as any doubles team in the country. They have won 45 of 46 matches, including a perfect 20-0 record this season. Its been almost two years since they lost to Mississippis Gabby Rangel and Connor Vogel. As important as their complementary tennis styles are, Embree, Mather and Thornqvist all agree that chemistry is the most vital part of their success. As they have grown on the court both in singles and doubles, they have grown closer together. Now, they are best friends and roommates. They can often be seen interacting on Twitter, with Embree (@lembree888) and Mather (@JoMather1) exchanging pictures, jokes and encouragement. At times, the girls said, they have an almost telepathic ability to know where the other one will be. Most of the time, I know what Lauren is going to do, what balls shes going to cross on, or whether shes going to try to lob or hit the ball, Mather said. Said Embree: Shes pretty athletic, so if she does something weird, I know somehow itll go in. Because weve been playing with each other for so long, I think we both know whats going to happen. Sometimes we dont even call plays. If all goes well, Embree and Mather have six team matches remaining. Next month, they will likely have the opportunity to help No. 2 UF win its second consecutive national title. That certainly wont be the end of their friendship, but it will be the end of their doubles partnership as Gators. Mather will graduate in May with a degree in management. She plans to pursue tennis professionally before going to graduate school down the road. Im not ready for a job yet, she said with a laugh. she will be a senior leader of a Florida team that will have the talent to again compete for a national title. a new doubles partner. As soon as Embree won the next two games against Bur dette, Mather knew the direction of the match had changed. When she won those two games at 4-2, Mallory started making more mistakes and Lauren was just so solid, and I just remember thinking Laurens got this. Embree won four of the next six games, throwing the match into a deadlock. Two of the nations top players were going They went back and forth, on mini-runs and mini-collapses. Leading 7-6, Embree was returning serve. After a rally, Burdette loaded up to deliver a forehand. It sailed wide. Out. During the celebration that followed, Embree eventually found Mather, crying. That led her to tears as well. It was a feeling unlike anything they had ever felt. Looking back on how hard our team worked and how hard we pushed each other and stayed together as a team meant so much to all of us, Embree said. Just being able to trust each other and trust ourselves and then everything paying off, Mather said. It was amazing.Dominant partnership coming to close for Embree, MatherElizabeth Hamilton / AlligatorUF tennis players Joanna Mather, front, and Lauren Embree compete in a match against Ole Miss on March 25.

wasnt fair. They sued. Thats how I know where the bullet entered Moms brain, how she fell to the ground. Carla and Tracis lawyer thought it would be a good idea to show us pictures and diagrams, explaining the scene like something out of a bad episode of CSI. It could be a setup, they said. There could have been a third person, they said. How do we know Matt or his brother didnt do it, they asked. This is family? This is what loved ones do? For years after, those memories have haunted me. They still do. After questioning my future, questioning the meaning of family and my own self-worth, I pushed through the pain and put in the work to get to where I am today graduating from the only university I have ever wanted to attend as the sports editor of one of the best student newspapers around. There are plenty of people who would tell you that I would never have made it this far. I did it for them, and for her. Mom deserved to see her son become a success, whether she could truly see it or not. Throughout my two years at the Alligator, I have been the punchline of joke after joke about my age. Some of you knew why I was such an old bastard. Some didnt. But none of you ever treated me differently because of it. Everyone theres too many to name at this paper has touched me in a way I will never forget. Finally, theres not any questions. Finally, I feel at peace with where I am in life. ing of family I know I can believe in.

Junior Austin Maddox was sent down to the bullpen at one point, but none of UFs leading relief pitchers was used. Florida had an ideal opportunity in the ninth with two outs and the bases loaded for Zunino. He grounded out to shortstop Kyle Teaf on a 1-2 count to end the game. We didnt do a good job at all as an entire lineup, Fontana said. We were jumping out of our stances a little bit. The win snapped a 12-game losing streak against the Gators for the lost to South Florida since OSullivan became coach. The Gators now move forward to another midweek game tonight at 7 against Bethune-Cookman. OSullivan said sophomore Karsten Whitson will get the start with an uncertain pitch-count limit. We gotta get him going, simple as that, OSullivan said. Were going to need him down the stretch. BASEBALL, from page 27Moultrie drives in winning run in Game 1 With the hit, UFs lone senior collected her seventh game-winning RBI on the year, which is second only to Lauren Haegers nine. Florida (42-6, 19-3 Southeastern Conference) won 2-1, but dropped the second game, 1-0, to No. 23 LSU (33-16, 14-8 SEC). Once again, the pitching for both teams dominated.
