The Lower Saxony city is where, legend has it, the Pied Piper led all the rats out in 1284 with his magic pipe into the Weser River, where they drowned. But more than 700 years later, city officials say such drastic measures may not be necessary. The fountain was due to be permanently closed anyway because of the high upkeep costs.

TUESDAY, MAY 29, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 David Carr / Alligator StaffLean On MeA large tree damaged the home of Geneva Sercey, 60, off Southeast 11th Street Monday afternoon as Tropical Storm Beryl swept across north Florida. KATHERINE HAHNAlligator Contributing WriterGay rights have been making national headlines, and some members of UFs LGBTQ community think its about time. In 2010, former Rutgers University student Dharun Ravi used a webcam to view his roommate, Tyler Clementi, being intimate with a man. Ravi told friends and Twitter followers there would be another viewing. The next day, Clementi jumped to his death from the George Washington Bridge. Ravi was convicted May 21 of intimidation as a hate crime and tampering with evidence, according to a New York Times article. He faced up to 10 years in prison but received 30 days and community ser vice. Outgoing UF Pride Student Union president and English senior Ricky Carter, 22, said the LGBTQ community wasnt pushing for the maximum sentence for Ravi. Carter said he thinks most members of sentence. They didnt want a witch hunt. The trial sends a clear message that the justice system will take action when people are harassed and their privacy is invaded, he said. You cannot bully people, Carter said. You cannot harass people. Ravis sentencing trended on Twitter and was prominently featured on major news channels and online sites in the days before and after the verdict. UFs Assistant Director of Multicultur al and Diversity Affairs, Lauren Hannahs, 27, said she thought coverage of the case brought much-needed attention to harassment of gay people, but the media were misguided in framing the issue as new. She said the media didnt pay enough attention to the history of homophobic behavior or how deeply it is embedded in this country. Its socially acceptable to be homophobic, said Hannahs, who directs Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Affairs. In April, UF Student Senate President Aundre Price announced the Bias and Apprehension Committee to review university policy on hate crimes. In the past, Hannahs said, universities typically handled student hate crimes internally. The Dharun Ravi case set new standards by taking the crimes to court. President Barack Obama was recently featured on a May cover of Newsweek magazine with a rainbow halo as The First Gay President. Hannahs said she thinks the highstrongly linked to Obamas May 9 endorsement of same-sex marriage. Instead, she attributed media coverage to increasing acceptance of the LGBTQ community. I think its a trajectory of where the country is going, she said.Media plays increasing role in gay rights issuesClementi

TUESDAY, MAY 29, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 On Tuesday afternoon, former U.K. Prime Minister Gordon Brown gave a lecture on the global economy in which he argued that the world is becoming ever more interconnected and that many problems will need to be solved through greater international cooperation. While Browns argument is true with regard to some pressing issues, further centralization of political power isnt wise. We are all part of an interdependent economy. What happens to us in one country affects all of us right across the world. This point was underscored yesterday at the Dartmouth College economics departments weekly seminar, where University of Michigan economist Jing Zhang discussed the impact of Chinese productivity growth on living standards in other countries. The days of autarky and isolationism are long gone. Furthermore, it is true that this interdependence necessitates increased international cooperation on certain issues. Greenhouse gas emissions from one country affect not just the polluting country but the entire planet. Alleviating extreme poverty is not and should not be the sole responsibility of the countries in which the poorest citizens live. However, in the interest of protecting individual liberties and for pragmatisms sake, I strenuously disagree that further transfers of power from local and state governments to national and international bodies is a wise course of action. upon the rights and liberties of its citizens if those citizens are free to move to another jurisdiction. Thus, in the interest of protecting individual liberties, political powers should be put in the hands of local and state governments rather than national or international governing authorities as far as reasonably possible. Take health care, for instance. Obviously, there are many health-related issues that are best addressed nationally and internationally. Successfully combating the spread of infectious and communicable diseases has often reLikewise, it often makes more sense for research to be funded by the federal rather than state governments, as a discovery made in one state multiple states. However, it is wrong to assume that health insurance is within the proper jurisdiction of the federal government. I have no problem with Massachusetts adopting an individual mandate or Vermont adopting a single-payer system. After all, if any of these states residents object to either of these policies, then these residents can always move to New Hampshire. if you object to a federal government policy. The second problem with centralization of political power is more pragmatic sometimes a policy that is entirely appropriate for one place is not at all appropriate for another. The Eurozones For more than half a century, many European leaders have worked tirelessly to improve economic integration and international cooperation among different European countries. In many ways, this has been a good idea. I especially applaud the relative success of the European Common Market, which has greatly liberalized trade in goods and services within Europe, and the Schengen Area, allowing for the free migration of people throughout much of the continent. However, the euro has undoubtedly been a disaster. With the enactment of a single currency, the countries using the euro left themselves susceptible to the kind of severe macroeconomic difMany economists on both sides of the Atlantic understood this possibility and thus recommended against the adoption of the single currency, yet the European political elites decided to forge ahead anyway. Ironically, Gordon Brown, who was the U.K.s chancellor of the Exchequer in the early 2000s, clearly understood these potential problems, and he probably deserves much of the place. Its true that the countries of the world are becoming more interconnected and that there are many pressing issues that require increased international cooperation. However, we shouldnt, as a general rule, centralize ever more power in the hands of national and international bodies. Jonathan Pedde is a columnist for The Dartmouth at Dartmouth College.Did you know it is the year 2012? Stacey Pritchard doesnt seem to under stand what that means. Last week on Anderson Cooper 360, journalist extraordinaire Anderson Cooper interviewed people who had opinions regarding Pastor Charles Worleys outrageous remarks about homosexuality. Worley said that we need to build a great, big, large fence 50 or 100 miles long. Why? Put all the lesbians in there. Fly over and drop some food. Do the same thing with the queers and the homosexuals, Worley said. Have that fence electrified so they cant get out, he said. You know what, in a few years, theyll die out. You know why? They cant reproduce. Ill wait here until you do a YouTube search for this man and watch him say those words your self. Crazy, right? Not entirely of sound mind and body, if you ask me. So after those inflammatory remarks, Cooper took to interviewing some of Worleys congregation and supporters. This is when we get to meet the aforementioned lovely Stacey Pritchard. Bless her heart. She is certainly standing by her pastor and the words he said, but she also wants to make sure that he didnt really want to put gay men and lesbian women behind an electric fence. Those may have been the words he said from the pulpit, but he didnt really mean it, according to her. Pritchard is under the impression that putting people behind an electric fence with the intent of killing them off eventually just isnt done anymore. Or that people couldnt possibly be killed for their sexual orientation, so she didnt see the problem with joking about it. But as Cooper points out, Its happening right now in 2012 in Iraq and Iran. This is a pastor that speaks the word of God, Pritchard said. Anybody can take it any way they want to. And if they dont like it, they dont have to. They can turn turn around and go on. My problem is the fact that someone thinks the word of God is telling him or her to kill off an entire way of life. Thats rather scary and important to note. Like Cooper also said, Its called the Holocaust. It has happened. You said nobody is going to kill homosexuals. Homosexuals are killed around the world. Homosexuality is clearly far away from becoming a non-issue. Just as we need to stop mentioning that women are funny now, we also need to stop bringing up the simple fact that someone is gay. Because once we do, people might start to accept people who are different and stop trying to condemn them to a life behind an electric fence. Columnist Bruce Sallan wrote that he believes the show Glee is portraying a fantasy world with minimal consequences for the experimentation and sexual promiscuity these young people indulge in. Perhaps it is a fantasy world, Sallan. Maybe its slightly unrealistic to portray a healthy relationship that also happens to be homosexual on television. (In full disclosure, I havent seriously watched that show in a while, but Im at least sure that the infamous gay plotline hasnt been happy-golucky and easy for the characters.) Obviously there are a lot of things that go into forming the opinion of the public. Social structures such as school, church and home have a big responsibility in raising people to be functional members of society. Lets not ruin that by shoving our peers behind an electric fence.

8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, MAY 29, 2012David Carr / Alligator StaffSteve Wheeler, 53, runs on the sidewalk of Southeast 13th Street Saturday afternoon Brett Le Blanc / Alligator Staff RESEARCH SAMANTHA BLOCKAlligator Contributing WriterUF researchers studying ways to lessen liver damage have received a grant of nearly $1.3 million from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease. that the livers ability to recover from ischemia/reperfusion injury the damage from a lack of oxygen and nutrients is associated with the process by which cells remove damaged mitochondria. The research is headed by principal investigators Christiaan Leeuwenburgh, chief of the biology of aging division in the department of aging and geriatric research, and Jae-Sung Kim, assistant professor of surgery in the UF College of Medicine. Kim and his research team disproved a previous study that found the autophagy process damages the liver during the aging process and there was no way to use older livers. The team has also been studying the link between impaired autophagy with diseases such as cancer and neurological disorders. Liver transplants can be very dangerous, especially on older individuals with cancer, Kim said. Only about 30 percent of individuals on the liver transplant list receive a donor or gan, Kim said. He hopes to expand the donor pool by including older individuals. Our team has found that even though a senior person has cancer, there is now a potential way to safely perform the operation to expand their life and quality of life, he said.UF researchers receive $1.3M grant for liver damage researchSteve Wheeler has completed six other 100-mile ultramarathonsSteve Wheeler started running ultramarathons in his 40s, each race ranging from 50 to 100 miles. ing the Western States Endurance Run in California. He said he has completed six other 100mile ultramarathons, including the 2011 Iron Horse Endurance Runs in Florahome. To train for long-distance running, Wheeler runs about 20 to 30 miles several times a week through trails at the Wekiwa Springs State Park near his house in Altamonte Springs. He sometimes runs up to 70 miles in a session to build endurance. During runs that could last several hours, Wheeler said he keeps his mind busy to maintain focus. He also said running helps him stay calm. Im in real estate, and its stressful, he said. So going out and running is a great stress reliever. As her father battled fatigue, dehydration and the north Florida heat Friday afternoon, Leslie Wheeler made sure to have aid supplies ready. She said throughout the ultramarathon, she stopped every two miles to give her father food and water to replenish his energy. Later in the run, her father was drinking a bottle of water per mile. During the night, Wheeler ran past The Villages, Belleview and Ocala. At around 11:30 a.m. Saturday, the Wheelers approached the 90-mile mark at Paynes Prairie near McIntosh. as he ran. Leslie Wheeler drove her father 10 miles up the road until they escaped the smoke to continue the run. At 2:30 p.m., after 28 hours and 100 miles of running, Wheeler arrived at UF near the izing the end of his journey and his daughters undergraduate education. Steve Wheelers run has drawn praise from UF faculty who support funding public school art programs. We in the art world are so grateful when someone individually decides to take up the banner, said Margaret Mertz, associate dean of the College of Fine Arts. Steve Wheeler said the Orlando-toGainesville run was his toughest challenge to date due to blistering heat, smoke and hilly terrain. You just have to keep telling yourself to keep going, he said on Saturday. Leslie Wheeler said she hopes her fathers run garners more support from families and students to help save art programs in schools. The Wheelers said they are currently seeking donations for the Seminole County Pubdepartments. Its really important for a lot of peoples futures, she said. RUN, from page 1Fires might have been intended three brush trucks and three tractors stood by in case the blaze grew. Three personnel with brush trucks, one supervisor and two Alachua County Fire Rescue, volunteer Rescue, the Gainesville Police Department and the Red Cross had responded to the variLudie Bond, district spokeswoman for weekend last year. They could be instances of arson. They seem suspicious, she said. ing the weekend to look for suspicious activity. No injuries have been reported. people. As the noon sun hung in the smoky sky on Saturday, brothers Leon and Vernon Fuller waited in two small tractors and looked out acres of mostly pine trees. About half of the land burned overnight, said Leon Fuller, who worked for the Division of Forestry in the 1980s. The brothers were up at 2 a.m. putting out tractors, Fuller, 65, said. and forestry workers plowed paths about 10 feet wide with tractors, knocking trees and debris away from the path. [Fire] wont burn the bare ground, Fuller said. Forestry workers widened the containment lines to 20 to 30 feet on Saturday in preparation for strong winds Sunday. But rain during the second half of Memorial Day weekend quenched many of the weather early in the week.

TUESDAY, MAY 29, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Poll QuestionWho should be Floridas No. 3 starter in the postseason: Karsten Whitson or Jonathon Crawford? Vote online at alligatorSports.org.Help WantedMens tennis coach Andy Jackson resigned after 11 seasons. Womens golf coach Jan Dowling stepped down after three years. Read more at alligatorSports.org. Florida coach Kevin OSullivan is playing the waiting game and its time to stop. The Gators can no longer In arguably his most important start of the season, Whitson lasted just 2.1 innings in an 8-6 loss to Vanderbilt Saturday. Coming into this season, Whitson had high expectations after a stellar freshman campaign. He recorded a 2.40 ERA, a .235 batting average against and a 3.3-to-1 strikeout-towalk ratio in 97.1 innings in 2011. This season, Whitsons ERA is 3.41 and his batting average against is .296 in 31.2 frames. His strikeoutto-walk ratio: 1-to-1. Whitson has pitched at least against Cal State Fullerton on Feb. 18 and again at Auburn on May 19. The sophomore right-hander has struggled with injuries. A groin issue sidelined Whitson during fall practice and once he recovered, his arm wasnt in shape. As a result of his physical predicaments, Whitsons lack of command usually overcome by his velocity has proven costly. FLORIDA WILL HOST NCAA REGIONAL THIS WEEKEND. JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer After a lengthy stay in Alabama, the Gators will be home for a while. Vanderbilt in the Southeastern Conference Tournament, Florida earned the No. 1 overall seed and will host Georgia Tech, BethuneCookman and College of Charleston at one of 16 NCAA Regionals. UF will face BC on Friday night at 7 at McKethan Stadium. Were excited to be in it, coach Kevin OSullivan said. Were excited to be home. The Gators earned the nations top seeding despite a ninth-inning collapse against the Commodores on Saturday. Leading 4-3, Florida closer Austin Madsix stolen bases to Vanderbilt, including a successful triple steal with the bases loaded. UF brought the winning run to the plate in the bottom half of the ninth, but ultimately lost to Vandy 8-6. We got exposed there in the ninth, OSullivan said. Nobody likes to lose, but Im glad it happened this week and not next. Im not going to let the ninth inning here determine how we played in this tournament. While the Gators were gone, they rediscovered their hitting stroke. Before playing Samford on May 15, Florida had slumped in May with a .244 batting average and just three runs per game. However, UF reversed its fortunes shortly thereafter. The UF falls in SEC semis, earns No. 1 seed JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Writer STONY BROOK, N.Y. The Gators missed two big opportunities in the Final Four on Friday night. However, only one of them was evident during their game. Top-seeded Florida squandered a golden opportunity when it let a 12-5 lead with less than 12 minutes remaining disappear in Syracuse en route to a 14-13 sudden-death overtime loss. There were several chances to put the game away, but the Gators struggled to get possession down the stretch. Goaltender Mikey Meagher turned the ball over in the second-to-last minute of regulation with Florida up by one goal. But Florida not only botched its chance to play in the national championship game, they also missed out on the opportunity to do so against a team the players felt they were capable of beating: Northwestern, which defeated Syracuse 8-6 in the national title game. Despite the disappointing end to the season, coach Amanda OLeary emphasized the enormity of what the team had accomplished. Im proud of my team and proud of our season as this is just the third year of the program, she said. On the last day of the regular season, UF captured its second consecutive American Lacrosse Conference regular season championship with an 8-7 win over the Wildcats in Evanston, Ill., snapping Northwesterns 20game home winning streak. Then, in Gainesville, on May 5, the Gators handed the Wildcats their worst loss in more than nine years, a 14-7 blowout in the ALC Tournament. While it is no easy task to beat a team three times in one season, some Florida players made it clear just how hard it was to watch Northwestern advance farther than they did. The fact that northwestern is going to the championship when we beat them TWICE this season just pisses me off, we should be playing them, junior defender Sam Farrell said on her Twitter account (@goinSAM_) folFlorida squanders late lead in Final Four loss to SyracuseSEE LAX, PAGE 14FIRE JOE MORGANSEE BASEBALL, PAGE 15 SEE JOE, PAGE 16OLeary David Carr / Alligator Staff Brian Johnson pitches against Florida Gulf Coast on March 10.

14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, MAY 29, 2012 David Carr / Alligator Staff Mikey Meagher (5) defends a goal against Northwestern on May 5. Meagher, who made 15 saves in Fridays loss in the Final Four, surrendered 10 second-half goals on 22 shots against Syracuse. Gators will return entire starting lineup next seasonnal win over the Terrapins. Barring any transfers, the Gators are set to return every player from this years team except for senior attacker Caroline Cochran, who missed most of the season after suffering a torn left ACL on Feb. 15. be as lucky as each loses multiple starters to graduation. The Wildcats will lose 2011 Tewaaraton Award winner and the tournaments Most Outstanding Player this year in Shannon Smith along with goalkeeper Brianne LoManto, who are both seniors. Syracuse will graduate Sarah Holden. The senior attacker scored seven goals in two games against the Gators this season including the game-winner on Friday. And Maryland loses its third and fourth leading scorers to graduation in Kristy Black and Kerri Ellen Johnson. Thus, the Gators have another big opportunity next year. Getting here means everything, Meagher said. I knew we were going places when I stepped onto campus in Gainesville. Its terrible that we places.

TUESDAY, MAY 29, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 15Johnson named to All-SEC Tournament team as pitcher, DHGators have averaged 5.9 runs in their last eight games, including six contests with double-digit hits. A notable contributor to the offensive outburst was Brian Johnson, whose effort in the batters box earned him the designated hitter spot on the All-SEC Tournament Team. Johnson hit .300 during the eight-game stretch away from home with seven RBI, including a .375 clip during the SEC Tour ney. Im just keeping things simple, Johnson said. Seeing the ball, hitting the ball. I dont really think too much. I just hit it where its pitched. The junior southpaw also earned All-SEC Tournament team recognition as a pitcher for his outing against South Carolina. Facing the defending national champion Gamecocks in an elimination game Friday, Johnson gave up just two earned runs in In May, Johnson has logged 21 innings in three starts and posted a 1.29 ERA. Im letting it all hang out, Johnson said Friday. Im just throwing it with all Ive got. Florida also received a boost from freshmen Justin Schafer and Casey Turgeon, who overcame their inexperience to garner selections to the All-SEC Tournament Team. Turgeon batted .429 and knocked in four runs; Schafer recorded a base hit in each game, and he totaled three RBI in Hoover, Ala. With solid production from the bottom of the lineup and a 2.38 ERA by the starting rotation, OSullivan believes the Gators best baseball lies ahead in the postseason. Our bullpens in good shape, weve been swinging the bat better, OSullivan said. I do like where were at right now. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org.

Will came into the match ranked No. 1 in the country but was unable to come back and defeat Gibbs after forcing a third set. Allie played her best match of the entire tournament, coach Roland Thornqvist said. It was a great match against [Gibbs]. You have to give a lot of credit to [Gibbs], she found a way in the third set. Gibbs jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead Will fought back in the second, breaking Gibbs twice and taking a 3-0 lead. Gibbs evened the match at 4-4, but Will broke back and was able to take the second Allie really made it tough and physical in the second set with some deep, big, heavy forehands in the second set and was able to wear [Gibbs] down a little, Thornqvist said. In the third set, Gibbs pushed ahead, getting an early break point. Will wasnt able to hold Gibbs off and fell behind 5-1. Will then won eight of the next 11 points and cut Gibbs lead to 5-3, but Gibbs put Will away and won the set There was a pivotal game when [Gibbs] was up 3-1 and made it 4-1, Thornqvist said.

OSullivan has been cautious with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2010 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, but the excuses for Whitsons struggles have worn thin. Either Whitson is hiding an injury or hes in a very dark place on the mound. Considering the care OSullivan has taken with Whitson this season, the former seems unlikely. Therefore, I lean towards the latter. Either way, its time for the Gators to the job is Jonathon Crawford. In Whitsons prolonged absence this season, Crawford has made 12 starts and thrown 62 innings. His 3.34 ERA ranks second only to Hudson Randall for UF pitchers with at least six starts. Compared head-to-head with Whitson, Crawford has been the better pitcher in 2012. In roughly half as many innings, Whitson has 16 walks compared to Crawfords 22. Whitson has six wild pitches compared to Crawfords four, and Crawford has sur rendered one more extra-base hit. In addition to his solid numbers, Crawford proved his worth in the SEC Tournament opener against Auburn on May 22. Crawford gave up just one unearned run in 5.2 innings and struck out nine batters against the Tigers in a 6-1 Gators victory. Following Floridas 8-6 loss to Vanderbilt on Saturday, OSullivan summed up each of his starting pitchers in a few words. Randall: Hudson Randall has been really sharp for us all year long. Even when hes not as sharp as he normally is, he still keeps you in the game. Brian Johnson: Brian Johnsons been throwing the ball as good actually, he is throwing the ball as well as he ever has. Crawford: Johnny Crawfords been really, really good. Whitson: Obviously, hes been very good in the postseason. While Whitsons 1.89 postseason ERA from Floridas College World Series run last year may tempt OSullivan to keep going to the Whitson well this time around, he shouldnt. Relying on Whitson to pitch any better than he did during the regular season is foolish. Give Crawford the ball.

We knew Marquis was a dual threat when we recruited him, and he and Coach (Brian) ONeal have been working very hard to see him develop through the season, Holloway said. We dont think hes there yet, but we know his potential and I couldnt be more pleased. Davis continued the momentum on Friday by qualifying in the 100 meters, followed by the 200 meters on Saturday.
