Far below, a combination of bucket trucks, cranes and post-hole diggers take down the aged and rotting wooden power-line poles and then transfer wires to the steel replacements. Only then can the nest be secured to its new home and its inhabitants return. Assessments by utility company Progress Energy Florida found 10 transmissionline poles that run through the park parallel to the southbound lane of U.S. Route 441 needed replacement. Two of them held occupied osprey nests the Florida Department of Environmental Protection requested be transferred to the new poles. As of Monday, one nest had been successfully moved, and its original inhabitants had already returned, David Jowers, a park manager at the preserve, wrote in an email. As the ospreys move into mating season, its important any eggs remain undisturbed, he wrote. Workers in boom lifts must check the nests from a safe distance before work around the pole can start. If there are eggs in the nest, the project Nests moved before prairie construction NICOLE ZAKRZEWSKIAlligator Contributing WriterIn the two and a half years since Midnight Cookies opened inside California Chicken Grill, the companys operation has grown, but the kitchen has remained the same. The lack of space prompted owners Jonathan and Jennifer MacAllister to look for a new place. After two years of searching, the couple announced they would move the late-night cookie establishment to its own stand-alone store. The new store, located at 3345 SW 34th St., Suite 1, will be opened by April, said Jonathan MacAllister. He said the relocation will give his company a larger kitchen, increase menu options and expand delivery services to two additional apartment complexes. In addition, he said, the store will extend its hours during the day. Were trying to have a coffee house feel, he said. During Spring Break, the store closed to allow MacAllister and his team to prepare for the move. MacAllister said although a date for the grand opening hasnt been set, the move wont affect current business or delivery services. April Burnett, a store manager, said shes excited for the move because it will give the store a chance to reach out to more customers. Its going to do good for the company, she said.

Sterling Ivey, spokesman for Progress Energy, said the new pole framings are more bird-friendly than the wooden predecessors, although some deterrents are also included to protect the poles and wires from the prairies heavy bird activity. On the ground beneath the lines, a swath of prairie has been reduced to a puddled and muddy road churned daily by the various vehicles and equipment. Although the land is owned by the Department of Environmental Protection, a right of way was permitted to Progress Energy. Restoration to any disturbed lands is done by restoring to asis or better conditions, Ivey said. This is regardless of the land being a state land or customer property. Jowers wrote that the prairie has been invaded by woody plants in the last few years, and the equipment being used by Progress Energy, notably the Marsh Master, is what the basin needs to return to its intended swampy habitat. The Friends of Paynes Prairie, a citizen support organization, is currently raising funds to purchase a Marsh Master for Paynes Prairie Preserve to help gain access to the basin marsh for resource management, Jowers wrote. The project should be completed sometime in April, Ivey said. 4, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, MARCH 11, 2013Ryan Jones / Alligator StaffBaaaattling It OutNick Cindric, judge of the showmanship competition, examines a contestants goat at the Alachua County Youth Fair and Livestock Show at the Alachua County Fairgrounds on Sunday.

The woman fought back and ran from Pittman toward the parking lot. A friend, who was waiting in a car, heard a scream and ran to the stairwell.

We are in a day and age when we should be able to marry anyone that we want, the womens studies and Spanish junior said. I think its ridiculous that gay mar riage is still illegal, but we need to do whatever we can do, and so Im getting myself out there. Paoloemilio is joining Equality Florida, a civil rights lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Mallory Wells, public policy director for Equality Florida, said during the lobbying days, the organization brings people to talk about issues related to Floridas legalization of statewide domestic partnership for gay couples and the Florida Competitive Workforce Act, which would prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Paoloemilio, who is an intern for Equality Florida, said shes also attending to take a stand for human rights. There is still so much inequality for women and people in lower socioeconomic statuses. We need to keep working towards equality, she said. Gretchell Trochez, a 20-year-old UF political science sophomore, will also be lobbying. I have personal family stories insaid.

MONDAY, MARCH 11, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 LOCAL KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator WriterOne of 3-year-old Hunter Whittens favorite things to do is hang out with his dad. On Saturdays, this means riding the hour-long Route 1 loop with his mom, Michelle Whitten, and watching his father, Anson Whitten, drive a city bus. But on March 2, Hunter braved the chilly weather with his family to watch his father compete in the Regional Transit Systems 15th annual Bus Roadeo. Ten city bus drivers completed an 11-obstacle course on the driving pad behind the Gainesville Regional Airport to test their driving abilities as about 75 family members and friends watched on the sidelines. When contestant Antonio Cruz was announced to La Bamba blaring over the speaker system, six judges with clipboards climbed aboard the bus scrolling Cruzs name on the destination sign. The judges kept time, measured the smoothness of the ride and noted safety aspects. Sitting in the drivers seat, Cruz, 58, hit the throttle and street obstacle. He weaved in and out of lines of cones. Later, Cruz pulled alongside a row of yellow beams that simulated a curb. The bus stopped beside an RTS sign planted in a cracked 5-galstop, he called, blaring the horn. Outside, a team of volunteers measured the distance from the tires to the curb. Frederick Mayer, one of the judges, explained the distance should be 15 inches or less from the back tires and six inches or less from the front tires. The goal is for passengers to be able to step directly from the bus to the curb, he said, yardstick in hand. The judges winced as Cruz sped through a corridor of colorful bar rels. At the end was an orange cone, and hitting it meant losing points toward Cruzs score. The bus ground to a halt, stopthe last challenge on the course. We lived, said Roy Darnold, a smoothness of operation judge, as he lunged off the bus. Cruz breathed a sigh of relief after he left the drivers seat. He said it had been 10 years since he won the competition and was eager to hear the results following his run through the track. After the contestants completed the course, the emcee summoned the drivers to line up on a strip of faded red carpet that faced the bleachers. After a decade-long streak of losses, Cruz was named the winner of this years competition. Clutching his trophy, Cruz said he was pleased with the victory. this jinx, he said.

MONDAY, MARCH 11, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Gators in the NBAChicago Bulls center Joakim Noah scored 18 points and grabbed 17 rebounds in a 90-81 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday in Los Angeles. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff Writer A day after playing what coach Kevin OSullivan called one of their best games of the season, the Gators had one of their worst outings to date. Indiana continued to pound the ball while Florida (8-9) lost the stroke it found at the plate on Saturday in Sundays 7-4 loss at McKethan Stadium to give the Hoosiers the series win. I know what good hitting clubs look like, OSullivan said. They got a good hitting club. Indiana jumped out to a lead in the top game. Catcher Kyle Schwarber hit a solo home run in the second at-bat of the game to give the Hoosiers (8-3) the lead for good. Schwarber went 10 for 14 at the plate with four RBI in the series. Im not quite sure Ive ever seen a guy have a weekend like that, OSullivan said. He hit balls down, off the plate. He hit balls in. He hit balls up. He hit soft. He hit hard. Schwarber, Indianas two-hole hitter, combined with third and fourth hitters Sam Travis and Scott Donley to go 22 for 37 during the weekend at the plate with 11 RBI. Its kind of like how we were for three years with Preston (Tucker) and Mike (Zunino), OSullivan said. Now I kind of know how it feels. You always turn around, and it looks like theyre coming up again. The Hoosiers recorded 36 hits in the series. Despite their success at the plate on Sunday, OSullivan was pleased with the performance of freshman starter Eric Hanhold, who gave up four runs and seven hits in four innings of work. I thought Eric threw the ball good, OSullivan said. Sometimes the line doesnt say how a guy threw. I liked his demeanor. I liked his aggressiveness. The ball was coming out of his hand good. He threw three pitches for strikes. In the third inning, the Hoosiers extended their lead to 3-0 after Schwarber Freshman Taylore Fuller hit the deciding home run in the Florida softball teams 2-0 win against Auburn on Sunday. See story, page 15. #alligatorSportsTweetableId like to give a big shout out to life Jelani Jenkins, former UF linebacker Twitter: @jelanijenkins3Ryan Jones / AlligatorCoach Kevin OSullivan watches from the dugout during Floridas 7-4 loss to Florida Gulf Coast on Feb. 24 at McKethan Stadium. FGCU and Indiana have each defeated UF in weekend series at McKethan Stadium this season. The Gators won every weekend series against non-conference opponents during the 2012 campaign. Indiana clinches weekend series against FloridaSEE BASEBALL, P A GE 14 PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer Following an 82-73 loss to topseeded and ninth-ranked Tennessee eastern Conference Tournament on Friday, Florida awaits its postseason fate, hoping for an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament. However, unlike last season when the Gators snuck in as a No. 9 seed the selection committee acknowledged Florida was one of the last four teams into the Big Dance a year ago there will likely be little drama while awaiting their destination this year. The NCAA Tournament selections will be announced on March 18 beginning at 7 p.m. But the Gators likely will not hear their name called until later in the evening when the WNIT bracket is revealed. Florida (18-14, 6-10 SEC) boasts a resume unlikely to warrant an oppor tunity to play in the NCAA Tournament. Of UFs 18 victories this season, only two have come against teams with an RPI of 50 or better. UF beat squads with respective RPIs of 33 and 43 but were otherwise unable to notch a signature victory.Gators await postseason fateSEE WOMENS HOOPS, P A GE 14 LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer In the heat of Saturday afternoons game against Kentucky, Florida went cold.

I cant put the ball in the basket for them, Donovan said. I cannot make a jump hook, but I can try to put them in positions where they can be successful. Wildcats guard Julius Mays said: We were getting stops, and they couldnt score. Prior to Saturdays game, Donovan said that the Gators needed to eliminate wastwhere his team takes bad shots, turns over the ball or does not take advantage of open looks. But UF wasted plenty of opportunities down the stretch against UK. At the 4:53 mark, guard Mike Rosario sent an errant pass to guard Scottie Wilbekin, which Kentucky guard Archie Goodwin intercepted. Goodwin then drove to the other end for a two-handed slam to cut Floridas advantage to 57-55. Two offensive possessions later, Wilbekin looked to guard Kenny Boynton on the right wing. Unfortunately for the Gators, Boynton cut to the top of the key and Wilbekins pass made its way to Flor idas bench. Offensive cold streak dooms UFSEE HOOPS, P A GE 14 UF Bask etball

TRACK & FIELD GORDON STREISANDAlligator Writer Coach Mike Holloway and Floridas bid to win a fourth straight NCAA Indoor Championship fell short on Saturday in Fayetteville, Ark. top-ranked Arkansas, Holloway was still pleased with the effort of his mens team. The Razorbacks performance was simply too much to match. Thats the most weve scored at the national championships since Ive been here and to get beat by 15, I dont know what to say, Holloway said. We came out here and competed well, had seasonal bests across the board. Thats what we train for, thats what we live for, and we have nothing to hang our heads about. Of course we came here and wanted to win. We wanted to be national champions again. But being national runner-up and performing the way we did, we left our hearts and souls out here, and I couldnt be more proud of these young men. Sophomore jumper Marquis Dendy and junior hurdler Eddie Lovett combined to account for 25 of the mens 59 points during the meet. Dendy leapt to a national championship as well as new personal and school records in the mens long jump with a NCAA-leading distance of 8.28 meters on Friday. This track facility is a great place to jump, Dendy said. I felt really, really good here. I just had to do it like I did at [the Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships]. Said Holloway of Dendys performance: Im very proud of onship, and it got us off to a great start. Lovett brought home a national title of his own in the mens 60m hurdles. Clocking a time of 7.50 seconds good for a per sonal record, a school record, an NCAA Indoor Championship meet record and the fourth-fastest time in NCAA history. I felt pretty good, Lovett said. It wasnt the best start like I wanted, but I made it up at the end. Im just happy. If I got my steps and technique right, it would all fall into place. Holloway added: Eddie is the kind of guy where he could have a perfect start and still say it wasnt. Thats just how he and (hurdles) coach (Erin) Tucker are. What Ill tell you is watching his transformation its always great when you can break that ice and watch him come around. Hes been focused like this since August when he started. Im extremely proud of him. Both Dendy and Lovett set previous personal bests at the SEC Indoor Championships, which were also held in Fayetteville. Although the womens team placed 13th at the NCAA Indoor Championships, Holloway was pleased with several of his athletes results in individual events. We talked to the women about having more pride, and they came out and ran seasons best in the 4x4, seasons best in the mile for Agata (Strausa) and a new PR for Ciarra (Brewer), Holloway said. The Gators left their mark on the building. Now were outside where we live and breathe, and well see them in a few months. cially over, Florida looks to utilize the end results from the NCAA meets moving forward into the outdoor season. The mens team aims to repeat as NCAA outdoor national champions in 2013. Its going to help us be better outdoors. Its a motivation, its a better purpose, a better focus, Holloway said. Anytime we want to slack a little, Ill just bring the trophy practice so they can see it and remember we got second indoors. We didnt do anything wrong this weekend. Eddie Lovett, Omar (Craddock), Marquis (Dendy), Sean Obinwa everyone did their absolute best this weekend.UF men fall short of fourth straight title

The lack of space prompted owners Jonathan and Jennifer MacAllister to look for a new place. After two years of searching, the couple announced they would move the late-night cookie establishment to its own stand-alone store. The new store, located at 3345 SW 34th St., Suite 1, will be opened by April, said Jonathan MacAllister. He said the relocation will give his company a larger kitchen, increase menu options and expand delivery services to two additional apartment complexes. In addition, he said, the store will extend its hours during the day. Were trying to have a coffee house feel, he said. During Spring Break, the store closed to allow MacAllister and his team to prepare for the move. MacAllister said although a date for the grand opening hasnt been set, the move wont affect current business or delivery services.

On the ground beneath the lines, a swath of prairie has been reduced to a puddled and muddy road churned daily by the various vehicles and equipment. Although the land is owned by the Department of Environmental Protection, a right of way was permitted to Progress Energy. Restoration to any disturbed lands is done by restoring to asis or better conditions, Ivey said. This is regardless of the land being a state land or customer property. Jowers wrote that the prairie has been invaded by woody plants in the last few years, and the equipment being used by Progress Energy, notably the Marsh Master, is what the basin needs to return to its intended swampy habitat. The Friends of Paynes Prairie, a citizen support organization, is currently raising funds to purchase a Marsh Master for Paynes Prairie Preserve to help gain access to the basin marsh for resource management, Jowers wrote. The project should be completed sometime in April, Ivey said. 4, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, MARCH 11, 2013Ryan Jones / Alligator StaffBaaaattling It OutNick Cindric, judge of the showmanship competition, examines a contestants goat at the Alachua County Youth Fair and Livestock Show at the Alachua County Fairgrounds on Sunday.

MONDAY, MARCH 11, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 LOCAL KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator WriterOne of 3-year-old Hunter Whittens favorite things to do is hang out with his dad. On Saturdays, this means riding the hour-long Route 1 loop with his mom, Michelle Whitten, and watching his father, Anson Whitten, drive a city bus. But on March 2, Hunter braved the chilly weather with his family to watch his father compete in the Regional Transit Systems 15th annual Bus Roadeo. Ten city bus drivers completed an 11-obstacle course on the driving pad behind the Gainesville Regional Airport to test their driving abilities as about 75 family members and friends watched on the sidelines. When contestant Antonio Cruz was announced to La Bamba blaring over the speaker system, six judges with clipboards climbed aboard the bus scrolling Cruzs name on the destination sign. The judges kept time, measured the smoothness of the ride and noted safety aspects. Sitting in the drivers seat, Cruz, 58, hit the throttle and street obstacle. He weaved in and out of lines of cones. Later, Cruz pulled alongside a row of yellow beams that simulated a curb. The bus stopped beside an RTS sign planted in a cracked 5-galstop, he called, blaring the horn. Outside, a team of volunteers measured the distance from the tires to the curb. Frederick Mayer, one of the judges, explained the distance should be 15 inches or less from the back tires and six inches or less from the front tires. The goal is for passengers to be able to step directly from the bus to the curb, he said, yardstick in hand. The judges winced as Cruz sped through a corridor of colorful bar rels. At the end was an orange cone, and hitting it meant losing points toward Cruzs score. The bus ground to a halt, stopthe last challenge on the course. We lived, said Roy Darnold, a smoothness of operation judge, as he lunged off the bus. Cruz breathed a sigh of relief after he left the drivers seat. He said it had been 10 years since he won the competition and was eager to hear the results following his run through the track. After the contestants completed the course, the emcee summoned the drivers to line up on a strip of faded red carpet that faced the bleachers. After a decade-long streak of losses, Cruz was named the winner of this years competition. Clutching his trophy, Cruz said he was pleased with the victory. this jinx, he said.

MONDAY, MARCH 11, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Gators in the NBAChicago Bulls center Joakim Noah scored 18 points and grabbed 17 rebounds in a 90-81 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday in Los Angeles. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff Writer A day after playing what coach Kevin OSullivan called one of their best games of the season, the Gators had one of their worst outings to date. Indiana continued to pound the ball while Florida (8-9) lost the stroke it found at the plate on Saturday in Sundays 7-4 loss at McKethan Stadium to give the Hoosiers the series win. I know what good hitting clubs look like, OSullivan said. They got a good hitting club. Indiana jumped out to a lead in the top game. Catcher Kyle Schwarber hit a solo home run in the second at-bat of the game to give the Hoosiers (8-3) the lead for good. Schwarber went 10 for 14 at the plate with four RBI in the series. Im not quite sure Ive ever seen a guy have a weekend like that, OSullivan said. He hit balls down, off the plate. He hit balls in. He hit balls up. He hit soft. He hit hard. Schwarber, Indianas two-hole hitter, combined with third and fourth hitters Sam Travis and Scott Donley to go 22 for 37 during the weekend at the plate with 11 RBI. Its kind of like how we were for three years with Preston (Tucker) and Mike (Zunino), OSullivan said. Now I kind of know how it feels. You always turn around, and it looks like theyre coming up again. The Hoosiers recorded 36 hits in the series. Despite their success at the plate on Sunday, OSullivan was pleased with the performance of freshman starter Eric Hanhold, who gave up four runs and seven hits in four innings of work. I thought Eric threw the ball good, OSullivan said. Sometimes the line doesnt say how a guy threw. I liked his demeanor. I liked his aggressiveness. The ball was coming out of his hand good. He threw three pitches for strikes. In the third inning, the Hoosiers extended their lead to 3-0 after Schwarber Freshman Taylore Fuller hit the deciding home run in the Florida softball teams 2-0 win against Auburn on Sunday. See story, page 15. #alligatorSportsTweetableId like to give a big shout out to life Jelani Jenkins, former UF linebacker Twitter: @jelanijenkins3Ryan Jones / AlligatorCoach Kevin OSullivan watches from the dugout during Floridas 7-4 loss to Florida Gulf Coast on Feb. 24 at McKethan Stadium. FGCU and Indiana have each defeated UF in weekend series at McKethan Stadium this season. The Gators won every weekend series against non-conference opponents during the 2012 campaign. Indiana clinches weekend series against FloridaSEE BaASEbaBALL, Pa A GE 14 PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer Following an 82-73 loss to topseeded and ninth-ranked Tennessee eastern Conference Tournament on Friday, Florida awaits its postseason fate, hoping for an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament. However, unlike last season when the Gators snuck in as a No. 9 seed the selection committee acknowledged Florida was one of the last four teams into the Big Dance a year ago there will likely be little drama while awaiting their destination this year. The NCAA Tournament selections will be announced on March 18 beginning at 7 p.m. But the Gators likely will not hear their name called until later in the evening when the WNIT bracket is revealed. Florida (18-14, 6-10 SEC) boasts a resume unlikely to warrant an oppor tunity to play in the NCAA Tournament. Of UFs 18 victories this season, only two have come against teams with an RPI of 50 or better. UF beat squads with respective RPIs of 33 and 43 but were otherwise unable to notch a signature victory.Gators await postseason fateSEE WOMENS HOOPS, Pa A GE 14 LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer In the heat of Saturday afternoons game against Kentucky, Florida went cold. The No. 11 Gators (24-6, 14-4 Southeast7:36 of their 61-57 road loss to the Wildcats in Lexington, Ky., tempts. ing Kentuckys 11-0 run to close the game. I cant put the ball in the basket for them, Donovan said. I cannot make a jump hook, but I can try to put them in positions where they can be successful. Wildcats guard Julius Mays said: We were getting stops, and they couldnt score. Prior to Saturdays game, Donovan said that the Gators needed to eliminate wastwhere his team takes bad shots, turns over the ball or does not take advantage of open looks. But UF wasted plenty of opportunities down the stretch against UK. At the 4:53 mark, guard Mike Rosario sent an errant pass to guard Scottie Wilbekin, which Kentucky guard Archie Goodwin intercepted. Goodwin then drove to the other end for a two-handed slam to cut Floridas advantage to 57-55. Two offensive possessions later, Wilbekin looked to guard Kenny Boynton on the right wing. Unfortunately for the Gators, Boynton cut to the top of the key and Wilbekins pass made its way to Flor idas bench. Offensive cold streak dooms UFSEE HHOOPS, Pa A GE 14 UF Bask etball

16, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, MARCH 11, 2013 Courtesy to the Alligator / Razorback Photos / UAA CommunicationsSophomore jumper Marquis Dendy competes in the long jump at the SEC Indoor Track Championships on Feb. 23 in Fayetteville, Ark. TracRACK & FIELD GORDON STREISANDAlligator Writer Coach Mike Holloway and Floridas bid to win a fourth straight NCAA Indoor Championship fell short on Saturday in Fayetteville, Ark. top-ranked Arkansas, Holloway was still pleased with the effort of his mens team. The Razorbacks performance was simply too much to match. Thats the most weve scored at the national championships since Ive been here and to get beat by 15, I dont know what to say, Holloway said. We came out here and competed well, had seasonal bests across the board. Thats what we train for, thats what we live for, and we have nothing to hang our heads about. Of course we came here and wanted to win. We wanted to be national champions again. But being national runner-up and performing the way we did, we left our hearts and souls out here, and I couldnt be more proud of these young men. Sophomore jumper Marquis Dendy and junior hurdler Eddie Lovett combined to account for 25 of the mens 59 points during the meet. Dendy leapt to a national championship as well as new personal and school records in the mens long jump with a NCAA-leading distance of 8.28 meters on Friday. This track facility is a great place to jump, Dendy said. I felt really, really good here. I just had to do it like I did at [the Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships]. Said Holloway of Dendys performance: Im very proud of onship, and it got us off to a great start. Lovett brought home a national title of his own in the mens 60m hurdles. Clocking a time of 7.50 seconds good for a per sonal record, a school record, an NCAA Indoor Championship meet record and the fourth-fastest time in NCAA history. I felt pretty good, Lovett said. It wasnt the best start like I wanted, but I made it up at the end. Im just happy. If I got my steps and technique right, it would all fall into place. Holloway added: Eddie is the kind of guy where he could have a perfect start and still say it wasnt. Thats just how he and (hurdles) coach (Erin) Tucker are. What Ill tell you is watching his transformation its always great when you can break that ice and watch him come around. Hes been focused like this since August when he started. Im extremely proud of him. Both Dendy and Lovett set previous personal bests at the SEC Indoor Championships, which were also held in Fayetteville. Although the womens team placed 13th at the NCAA Indoor Championships, Holloway was pleased with several of his athletes results in individual events. We talked to the women about having more pride, and they came out and ran seasons best in the 4x4, seasons best in the mile for Agata (Strausa) and a new PR for Ciarra (Brewer), Holloway said. The Gators left their mark on the building. Now were outside where we live and breathe, and well see them in a few months. cially over, Florida looks to utilize the end results from the NCAA meets moving forward into the outdoor season. The mens team aims to repeat as NCAA outdoor national champions in 2013. Its going to help us be better outdoors. Its a motivation, its a better purpose, a better focus, Holloway said. Anytime we want to slack a little, Ill just bring the trophy practice so they can see it and remember we got second indoors. We didnt do anything wrong this weekend. Eddie Lovett, Omar (Craddock), Marquis (Dendy), Sean Obinwa everyone did their absolute best this weekend.UF men fall short of fourth straight title
