said. In contrast, at Gatornationals, the pits resembled the midway of a county fair. In an area behind the grandstands, crews rebuilt engines and changed tires beneath colorful awnings attached to RVs and trailers. Spectators gathered to watch, and often, drivers walked over to chat with them. Thats why Heather Walls, 35, came from Pennsylvania. Its a great fan experience because you get to talk to the drivers, she said. Theyre not snobby. She noted drag races are the closest youll get to celebrities, basically. If feeling close is a reason track, its also a reason many outof-towners choose to camp while theyre at Gatornationals. Saturday afternoon, Gary and Patti Gullotta and Chris and Conin the sunny, 75-degree weather drinking Blue Moon and cracking peanuts. Theyd been at the track earlier in the day, but they drove the three and a half miles back to their site at the Jaycees Campground for some downtime. Camaraderie, said Chris Ciccarone thats why he likes camping. The 57-year-old has been coming to the races and the campground for more than 30 years. He said its mellowed out a lot. People used to tear through a huge mud pit at the edge of the campsites in their trucks. This used to be a real hell-raising place, he said. Now, the mudpit is indented and dry like a lakebed. A few people were even camping in it. The wet T-shirt contest still takes place, but this group likes tamer activities like lively discusWeve solved the worlds problems probably a hundred times last night, said Gary Gullotta, 62. They like wearing grungy clothes and not having to shower. No TV, no nothing. No grandkids, no job, said Connie Ciccarone, 56. The campground has about 150 water hookups, which designate property is an informal tent-camping free-for-all, said Kristen Rabell, Jaycees board chairwoman. Its random. We dont count, she said of the number of sites. She said the grounds have served as a Gatornationals crash pad for 40plus years. Racing fans come to the campground from as far away as Canada, she said. The Jaycees camping option is cheaper than staying at the tracks facilities, which only allow RVs. The relaxed policy has led to a sprawling network of homesaway-from-home as campers turn whatever spot they choose into a weekend paradise. Visitors added nants. One site was decorated with an old, brittle Christmas tree adorned with beer bottles, Mardi Gras beads and a hubcap. Lee Thompson from Hazelhurst, Ga., was camping with a block of about 20 people. When he has the money for tickets to the races, he goes, said 29-year-old Thompson, leaning on one elbow sprawled in a green pup tent. This year, he didnt have the money to get onto the track, but he said the camping experience was enough in itself. A lot of drinkin, eatin a lot of grilled food, he said, adding that riding four-wheelers through the woods is a highlight, too. Its like a friend-family reunion. Every year, we try to bring more people. Laurie Sullivan, 50, and Earl Bass, 59, had just gotten into town Saturday afternoon. The couple from Bradenton was struggling planned to visit the races the next day. But for now, it was campground time. Thats half the fun relaxing, meeting people, Sullivan said, taking a sip from her Bud Light can in a coozie. Life is good today. MONDAY, MARCH 17, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 4 William A.

GPD initially incorrectly reported Debose pushed a victim through a window. Tobias announced the mistake in a statement via Facebook, apologizing for the error while commending Debose for his actions. I am extremely proud that (Debose) intervened in this incident and likely prevented anyone from being injured or killed, Tobias wrote. The NCAA granted Debose a sixth year of eligibility on Thursday after he applied for a medical hardship waiver. The wide receiver missed the 2013 season after he suffered a torn ACL. Debose also missed his freshman season in 2009 due to a knee biceps femoris graft for a previous injury. In the three seasons he has played at Florida, wide receiver Debose recorded 29 receptions for 543 yards. Staff writer Adam Lichtenstein contributed reporting. THE EVENT RAISED ABOUT $14,000. VICTORIA MESSINAAlligator Contributing WriterTammy Lewis closed her eyes as about 200 people watched her shoulder-length silvery gray hair fall to the Lewis, 47, and Dwayne, her 7-yearold son, were two of 38 participants who shaved their heads Friday on Flavet Field for the Freshman Leadership Council event known as St. Baldricks. A charity dedicated to funding childhood cancer research, the St. Balshaving event on St. Patricks Day in 2000. This year, the FLC raised about $14,000, double the amount raised at science junior. Event organizer McLane Edwards, man, said what began as an impulse decision became a mark of solidarity for childhood cancer patients. You cant, like, really go into it thinking, Aw, how am I going to look? because youre gonna look goofy, Edwards said. Thats just how its going to be. Lewis, of Middleburg, Fla., was one of two women who participated in the head-shaving event. She chose to volunteer in St. Balwith breast cancer in November 2013. She said she was nervous that the chemotherapy was going to take its toll on her hair before the event. It was getting to the point where I was wondering if (my hair) was going to last until today, Lewis said, and it held on for me. She said she participated to celebrate that Dwayne, her blind foster son who suffered from an eye cancer called bilateral retinoblastoma, has been cangetting their heads shaved, they joined in the middle of the stage to embrace and feel each others clean-shaven heads. Cancer patients and survivors werent the only participants Friday, unteered to shave their locks for the cause. advertising junior and captain of the Florida Cicerones team, said this was his third time shaving his head for St. Baldricks. He said he plans to become a fouryear shavee but realizes he must be creative to keep the donations coming. This year, Dobler dyed the tips of his hair blond to draw attention to his locks and the event but said he accidentally dyed his entire scalp shortly afterwards. You have to do these PR stunts to kind of keep people interested, Dobler said, or I just look like a guy who gets a free haircut once a year. 4, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, MARCH 17, 2014Emily Cochrane / Alligator StaffMarguerite Gaisser shaves Dwayne Lewis head Friday afternoon on Flavet Field as part of the Freshman Lead 38 people get close shave for cancer March 17, 2010 walked from Turlington Plaza to Emerson Hall proacross from the Levin College of Law after about a two-hour standoff with police, according to Alligator archives.

March 19, 2001 The Alligators attorney, Thomas Julin, along with the Orlando Sentinel, fought in court to obtain Dale Earnhardts autopsy photos after his fatal crash in Daytona. The autopsy was sealed after Teresa Earnhardt, Dales wife, sued the Volusia County Medical Examiner to not allow public access to the records. This led to public record law debate between the Orlando Sentinel and Earnhardts lawyers. Barbara Petersen, executive director of the First Amendment Foundation in Tallahassee, said the case set a bad precedent for public-information seekers.

STEPHANY VASQUEZAlligator Contributing WriterTargets thigh gap Photoshop fail has drawn criticism from the Gainesville community. The retailer posted last week an advertisement for a juniors bathing suit on its website, and several bloggers noticed the glaring Photoshop errors on the picture. The models thigh gap, the nickname for the space between thighs, extended into her pelvis. Parts of her arms were obviously thinned. Target acknowledged the error and removed the image. Kali Kaufman, a 20-year-old UF psychology junior, said she felt outraged. I couldnt tell if it was a mistake or if they meant to do it, she said. Images like that can negatively I have a younger sister, and I do not want her to think it is OK to look like that, Kaufman said. Research has established media like the Target advertisement contributes to increased body dissatisfaction among girls, said Natalie Rella, a GatorWell Health Promotion Services specialist. Being bombarded with these unrealistic and unattainable images encourages girls and women to base their self-worth on appearance and can be a contributing factor to the development of eating disorders, she said.Thigh gap photo raises controversy locallySTATE THE ASSOCIATED PRESSThe new Harry Potter-themed area opening at Universal Orlando Resort this summer will allow fans to ride the Hogwarts Express train and experience the British countryside just as the characters did.

Novelist, Miami Herald columnist and Alligator alumnus Carl Hiaasen has covered the issue extensively; he told NPR last year, Try to imagine ... the transformation you would watch if you lived here. Its traumatic. Enter Big Oil. According to NPR, Florida has granted a Texas oil company permission to drill an exploratory well in the western part of the Everglades in Naples. The Dan A. Hughes Co. is seeking permission to build an injection well, which would produce millions of gallons of toxic brine as a result of the drilling process. And although the company claims there will be no fracking involved, Floridas rules allow it to begin fracking if Dan A. Hughes Co. changes its mind. Naples residents and environmental groups are calling on both the Environmental Protection Agency to deny the Dan A. Hughes Co.s request and the state of Florida to reverse its decision on exploratory drilling in the Everglades. Preserve Our Paradise, a state advocacy group battling against an oil-industry takeover of the Everglades, has said theres simply no reason for oil drilling in the state of Florida. There are only small amounts of fossil fuel in Florida, and with many forms of green energy available, there is simply no need to risk despoiling Florida in this way, the groups website reads. As former Exxon executive Edward Glab has said, The juice isnt worth the squeeze. Its a dramatic narrative straight out of Erin Brockovich: Big exploits the resources of a struggling area. And while Floridians arent having any of it, the state seems OK with the drilling. The head of Floridas Petroleum Council assured NPR that new directional drilling techniques used by the oil industry allow for minimal surface disturbances essentially bringing to life the Coen Brothers satirical Clean Coal commercial, but this time, its clean oil drilling. Floridas legislature cant bend to the will of oil companies and even if safer oil-drilling techniques exist, allowing Texas companies in the western part of the Everglades not only undermines Floridas natural resources, it also undermines the states integrity. An undercurrent of Floridians existing fear of overdevelopment runs through the issue of oil drilling in the Everglades. Even if new technology is safer which is a bold claim residents whove sought peace and solitude along the banks of the Everglades dont want to see the area overrun by oil companies. Add this, of course, to the reality of toxic gases possibly being leaked into nature and neighborhoods. The U.S. doesnt need the little amount of oil that Florida can offer. What we need is a longer-lasting solution namely, less effort going toward developing clean-drilling techniques and more going toward discovering alternative energy sources.Election results not an accurate forecastPolitical junkies across the state and throughout the last week, wondering whether the result of a special served the district for decades until he passed away late felt they had an opportunity to win the seat, especially with former gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink. Sink had a strong lead in early polls as Republicans duked it out for the nomination. Ultimately, David Jolly, kept a Republican seat in Republican hands. Now, politicos throughout the country are trying to use this special election to determine the outcome of this falls midterm elections. Heres why you shouldnt listen to the pundits: Special elections tend to bring out only the most hardin a midterm election, let alone a special election in the middle of March. Not trying to polish a turd because Alex Sink had an opportunity to win and failed to do so but this was a Republican seat won by a Republican in It is true that Democrats are not poised to do well in November, but thats not strictly due to the current political climate. Rarely does the party of the incumbent president win seats in the second midterm elections. Remember seemed ready to move past George W. Bush. Now, Republicans fully expect its their turn to bathe the Democrats and are hopeful that theyll win additional theyll take control of the U.S. Senate. To my Republican friends: Be careful not to count your chickens before theyve hatched. Republicans are counting on an American electorate fed up with the policies of President Barack Obama and are still riding the anti-Affordable Care Act train, but Obamacare may not be the pariah in November that it seems to be right now. Just a quick update on the Affordable Care Act: More than health insurance as a result of the law, and the White happens if millions of Americans who didnt previously have health insurance get it, like it and realize that maybe Obamacare isnt the socialistic, communistic, evil, terrible, That rhetoric may work for a March special election in Pinellas County, but we still have more than seven months until voters across the country cast ballots. And while the American people might be getting Obama-fatigue, they may not reward the Republicans, either. The presidents isnt particularly good, but when you look at Congress A recent poll conducted by Public Policy Polling shows Congress with an 8-percent approval rating. bers of Congress are handling their jobs. Instead of Republicans winning in a so-called wave election, we instead may see a different wave one in which challengers defeat incumbents. Regardless of which party controls the House and Senate come January of next year, there are likely to be some new faces around the Capitol and some shocked, recently defeated incumbents lamenting their losses at home.

MONDAY, MARCH 17, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7 National Security Agency phone tapper Joshua Mansfeld was surprised yesterday to wire a phone call from someone he thought hed never see in his queue: his own mother. I was paralyzed, Mansfeld said, I was so stunned, I accidentally whispered Mom? into the headset. Mansfelds colleague Ralph Polowski described the moment as absolutely petrifying and more frightening than the thought that my profession actually exists. Witnesses say Martha Mansfeld, in retime in 15 minutes when they spoke over Skype during his lunch break, simply repeated, Joshie? Joshie? Is that you, Joshie? Joshie? nine times. Before she could hit 10, Patrick, the man who was selling her Tupperware for three payments of $39.99 from an infomercial during The View, interrupted, saying, No, this is Patrick. After four hours of investigation, the NSA Connell, a 17-year Tupperware salesman from Naperville, Ill. He has a clean criminal record. Martha persisted. Just one moment, Patricia, she said. I need to call my son. I think the landline just lost its Wi-Fi connection. The call was disconnected, and in D.C., Mansfelds phone rang. I was so scared, he said. You know that moment when you look at your phone and you see its your mother calling? It was like that. Mansfeld wiped sweat from his brow and answered what is now the NSAs second-most New York resident Dan Druff ordered Middle Eastern take-out cuisine to his apartment. Call logs from Mansfelds phone indicate the conversation lasted 18 minutes, mostly him just muttering yep, uh-uh and OK. During the ordeal, Martha asked her son why he hadnt called home lately, if he had been wearing a sweater, if hed met a woman yet and if he had been wearing a sweater. Fi for the landline, unplugged the landline and then plugged it back in, which she claims did nothing. She called her technical help center, located in Bamra, India, where a Texas now know was actually her microwave.

MONDAY, MARCH 17, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Former Gators return for scout day Stadium today. Former UF football players will work out for NFL coaches and scouts starting at 10:30 a.m.The UF softball teams offense blew out LSU in Read the story online at alligatorSports.org. UF WINS FIRST SEC TOURNEY TITLE SINCE 2007. LANDON WATNICKAlligator Staff Writer@LandonWatnickATLANTA Standing at the freethrow line on the front end of a one-andone with 23 seconds on the clock and Florida ahead of Kentucky 61-60, Scottie Wilbekin took three dribbles, bent down and released his shot. No good. When his free throw rimmed out, Dorian Finney-Smith pulled down the rebound and drew a foul on UK guard Andrew Harrison. Now, it was Finney-Smiths turn to try to pad UFs lead with a one-and-one opportunity. No good. The two misses set up an unfavorable situation for Florida: It would have to get one more stop on a Kentucky team that thrives when driving to the rim. Gators put their missed free throws behind them and showed their wisdom in a 6160 victory Sunday against the No. 2 seed Wildcats in the Southeastern Conference Dome. Florida had learned too many lessons from the past to mishandle a late-game situation like this. For the Gators, what went wrong during their loss to UConn in December one that saw Shabazz Napier sink a jumper at the buzzer because of a defensive breakdown by UF came to mind immediately in their huddle as Kentucky coach John Calipari called timeout with 14 seconds left. We just said everybody box your man out so they dont hurt us on the second shot, Wilbekin said. Dont run to the rim like we did at UConn. The strategy worked. Out of the timeout, Harrison wasted about 10 seconds of clock what he admitted postgame was too much time and looked to dish it off to Wildcats guard James Young at the right corner. Wilbekin guarded Harrison, while Michael Frazier II monitored Young. Harrison passed it to Young, and both Wilbekin and Frazier converged on Young at the right elbow. While all of this was happening, UFs Jordan McPherson / Alligator Staff Gators survive last-minute free-throw woes to win SEC Tourney JONATHAN CZUPRYN Alligator Staff Writer@jczuprynATLANTA When Scottie Wilbekin slumped down in his chair in the dimly lit press-conference room located in the bowels of the Jacksonville Memorial Arena on Nov. 25, he did not look like a winner. The senior point guard had just made his 2013-2014 team rules and now it was time to apologize to his friends, family and fans for his lack of responsibility. So on Sunday, when Wilbekin with a smile plastered on his face and confetti clinging to his championship Tshirt stepped up to accept his Southeastern Conference Tournament MVP award after a 61-60 win over Kentucky, it was not just a testament of his teams accomplishment, but also of his ability to mature in just 112 days. When asked how the Gators survived the ups and downs of this season and come out with a perfect league record and No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, Wilbekins answer could have almost applied to his own personal journey as well. It was a struggle at times, Wilbekin said. We came back from what we do. of us and just stick together as a team because thats what we are. Were a team. With a renewed Wilbekin at the helm of this Florida coach Billy Donovan won it three straight times from 2005 to 2007. school to win both the regular-season and tournament championship in the same year since that 2007 nationaltitle squad. And like Wilbekin, the Gators climbed their way to perfection by letting go of the past, which was marred by constant letdowns in their biggest opportunities for success. In 2011 this senior groups inaugural season Florbut fell by 16 to Kentucky. Two years later, Wilbekin and the Gators entered the league championship as the favorites but were shocked SEE SEC, PA GE 15 SEE SIDE, PA GE 15 UF Mens Bask etball Poll ResultsWill the No. 1 seed Gators mens basketball team win the Southeastern Conference Tournament?91% YES 9% NO63 total votes

14, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, MARCH 17, 2014 JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Writer@J_McPherson1126ATLANTA After the confetti fell and the nets were cut, Florida learned its spot in the NCAA Tournament. As expected, the Gators captured the No. 1 overall seed. UF, the No. 1 seed in the South Region, will face either Albany or Mount St. Marys on Thursday in Orlando. Both No. 16 seeds will square off on Tuesday. Fresh off a 61-60 win against Kentucky in the Southeastern Conference Tournament Championship, Florida is ready for the next step in the season. Coach [Billy Donovan] told us that after tonight, when we wake up in the morning, this is in the past, sophomore Michael Frazier II said. So I think we got to do a good job of understanding that we need to focus on our next point and focus on our next goal. Mount St. Marys (22-11, 11-7 West Coast Conference) is coming off a 7054 loss to Gonzaga the No. 8 seed in the West Region in the WCC Albany (18-14, 9-7 American East) was rewarded for its 69-60 win against Stony Brook in the American East Tournament with a shot to make it to the Big Dance. If UF wins its second-round contest on Thursday, Florida will continue on in the tournament to play the winner of No. 8 seed Colorado and No. 9 seed Pittsburgh. The rest of the South Region will prove to be a tough ride for Florida, with Kansas, Syracuse and UCLA earning the second, third and fourth seeds, respectively. dence that we can lineup against anyone, senior Patric Young said. We think if were playing the right way, that theres no one we cant beat. But we have to go and do what we did after the regular season was over, start right from the bottom. It starts with the practices, just coming in every single day with a mindset offense and utilizing each other better. Florida struggles at the charity stripe: Before they headed to Atlanta for the SEC Tournament, the Gators connected on 67.9 percent of their free-throw shots. But once they entered the Georgia Dome, they couldnt keep that pace. Florida managed to connect on only half of its shots from the charity stripe through its three tournament games. Outside of senior Casey Prathers 12-of-17 clip from the line, no Florida player made more than half of his attempts from the free throw line. Theres always areas we can get better on. I think free throw shooting is an area we can improve, Donovan said after Floridas 56-49 win against Tennessee on Saturday. We spend time, those guys put time in on their own, we put time in practice. Hopefully that will be an area this time of year that we can get better at, because I think were capable of doing that.Florida awarded No. 1 overall seedJordan McPherson / Alligator StaffPatric Young attempts a free throw during Floridas 61-60 win against Kentucky on Sunday in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

What I would say that our guys have learned is in the moment of something negative happening, being able to move past it and let it go and refocus to the next thing, Donovan said. Thats what they have learned to do. Thats where I think we have gotten better is were a better focused team moving past runs adversity, mistakes, challenges, things not going our way. Now, everything is going the Gators way. Even when they clank two free throws off the rim in a one-point game, they stuck the course and focused on stopping Kentucky on the other side of the court. of Floridas two missed shots from the charity stripe down the stretch, went into the huddle and talked about how the team could prevent the Wildcats from scoring. Not once did the squad mention the missed free throws. And as a result, the Gainesville native and SEC Player of the Year made what Donovan called the most important move of the game. Wilbekin forced Kentuckys Andrew Harrison to his right on the rendering the center of the lane. That defensive scheme led to Harrison dumping off the ball to teammate James Young, who slipped and fell to give the Gators the win. So we were just put in the right situations, and didnt allow us not doing what we normally do in those situations to allow us to not do the next thing, senior Patric Young said. So we put our past mistakes of not stopping their runs and fouling too much behind us and just moved on to the next thing, which is what helped us get it done tonight.

The loss snapped Floridas seven-game winning streak suspension. Logan Shore and Eric Hanhold, the Game 1 and Game 2 starters, held Arkansas to one run in 11.1 combined innings. Puk surrendered three in two frames. Honestly I dont want to say anything. He struggled. He wasnt hitting spots. Everything was up, catcher Braden Mattson said. He didnt seem ready to play, and sometimes that happens with young players. Well move Puk dazzled Connecticut on March 8 with a career-high seven strikeouts. Arkansas chased him in the third after a and at the plate. Catcher Jake Wise, hitting seventh, started the inning high as the OConnell Center off the bat. It hooked from left-center to just barely inside the foul pole to give Arkansas a two-run lead. Puk walked two of the next four batters before Brian Anderson doubled them home. Taylor Gushue opened the bottom half with a single to right. The wind turned the hard-hit ball into a routine out. Fly balls would carry a little more down the lines, Bader said.

With time dwindling and the ball up for grabs, Wilbekin and Harrison converged on it. As both were in a tussle on the ground, the buzzer rang and Florida sealed and delivered. Last time we played Kentucky at our place, there was a loose ball that I didnt dive on, and Will (Yeguete) and Casey (Prather) yelled at me for not diving on the ball, and I felt bad, Wilbekin said. So I thought about that, and there was no way I wasnt going to dive on it this game. What helped a veteran Florida group edge past a young Kentucky team Sunday was experience. It has been a quality the Gators have displayed all season, bodied that. Where you could have come out of that timeout Kentucky called with 14 seconds, Dorian FinneySmith hanging his head, Wilbekin hanging his head, I missed the free throw, cant believe it, coach Billy Donovan said. Now theyre not even thinking about the next possession. Theyre worried about what happened at the free-throw line. They did that in their career. That was a problem for them.

In an area behind the grandstands, crews rebuilt engines and changed tires beneath colorful awnings attached to RVs and trailers.

Camaraderie, said Chris Ciccarone thats why he likes camping. The 57-year-old has been coming to the races and the campground for more than 30 years. He said its mellowed out a lot. People used to tear through a huge mud pit at the edge of the campsites in their trucks. This used to be a real hell-raising place, he said. Now, the mudpit is indented and dry like a lakebed. A few people were even camping in it.

We dont count, she said of the number of sites. She said the grounds have served as a Gatornationals crash pad for 40plus years. Racing fans come to the campground from as far away as Canada, she said. The Jaycees camping option is cheaper than staying at the tracks facilities, which only allow RVs. The relaxed policy has led to a sprawling network of homesaway-from-home as campers turn whatever spot they choose into a weekend paradise. Visitors added nants. One site was decorated with an old, brittle Christmas tree adorned with beer bottles, Mardi Gras beads and a hubcap. Lee Thompson from Hazelhurst, Ga., was camping with a block of about 20 people. When he has the money for tickets to the races, he goes, said 29-year-old Thompson, leaning on one elbow sprawled in a green pup tent. This year, he didnt have the money to get onto the track, but he said the camping experience was enough in itself. A lot of drinkin, eatin a lot of grilled food, he said, adding that riding four-wheelers through the woods is a highlight, too. Its like a friend-family reunion. Every year, we try to bring more people. Laurie Sullivan, 50, and Earl Bass, 59, had just gotten into town Saturday afternoon. The couple from Bradenton was struggling planned to visit the races the next day. But for now, it was campground time.

Tobias announced the mistake in a statement via Facebook, apologizing for the error while commending Debose for his actions. I am extremely proud that (Debose) intervened in this incident and likely prevented anyone from being injured or killed, Tobias wrote.

Novelist, Miami Herald columnist and Alligator alumnus Carl Hiaasen has covered the issue extensively; he told NPR last year, Try to imagine ... the transformation you would watch if you lived here. Its traumatic. Enter Big Oil. According to NPR, Florida has granted a Texas oil company permission to drill an exploratory well in the western part of the Everglades in Naples. The Dan A. Hughes Co. is seeking permission to build an injection well, which would produce millions of gallons of toxic brine as a result of the drilling process. And although the company claims there will be no fracking involved, Floridas rules allow it to begin fracking if Dan A. Hughes Co. changes its mind. Naples residents and environmental groups are calling on both the Environmental Protection Agency to deny the Dan A. Hughes Co.s request and the state of Florida to reverse its decision on exploratory drilling in the Everglades. Preserve Our Paradise, a state advocacy group battling against an oil-industry takeover of the Everglades, has said theres simply no reason for oil drilling in the state of Florida. There are only small amounts of fossil fuel in Florida, and with many forms of green energy available, there is simply no need to risk despoiling Florida in this way, the groups website reads. As former Exxon executive Edward Glab has said, The juice isnt worth the squeeze. Its a dramatic narrative straight out of Erin Brockovich: Big exploits the resources of a struggling area. And while Floridians arent having any of it, the state seems OK with the drilling. The head of Floridas Petroleum Council assured NPR that new directional drilling techniques used by the oil industry allow for minimal surface disturbances essentially bringing to life the Coen Brothers satirical Clean Coal commercial, but this time, its clean oil drilling. Floridas legislature cant bend to the will of oil companies and even if safer oil-drilling techniques exist, allowing Texas companies in the western part of the Everglades not only undermines Floridas natural resources, it also undermines the states integrity. An undercurrent of Floridians existing fear of overdevelopment runs through the issue of oil drilling in the Everglades. Even if new technology is safer which is a bold claim residents whove sought peace and solitude along the banks of the Everglades dont want to see the area overrun by oil companies. Add this, of course, to the reality of toxic gases possibly being leaked into nature and neighborhoods. The U.S. doesnt need the little amount of oil that Florida can offer. What we need is a longer-lasting solution namely, less effort going toward developing clean-drilling techniques and more going toward discovering alternative energy sources.Election results not an accurate forecastPolitical junkies across the state and throughout the last week, wondering whether the result of a special served the district for decades until he passed away late felt they had an opportunity to win the seat, especially with former gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink. Sink had a strong lead in early polls as Republicans duked it out for the nomination. Ultimately, David Jolly, kept a Republican seat in Republican hands. Now, politicos throughout the country are trying to use this special election to determine the outcome of this falls midterm elections. Heres why you shouldnt listen to the pundits: Special elections tend to bring out only the most hardin a midterm election, let alone a special election in the middle of March. Not trying to polish a turd because Alex Sink had an opportunity to win and failed to do so but this was a Republican seat won by a Republican in It is true that Democrats are not poised to do well in November, but thats not strictly due to the current political climate. Rarely does the party of the incumbent president win seats in the second midterm elections. Remember seemed ready to move past George W. Bush. Now, Republicans fully expect its their turn to bathe the Democrats and are hopeful that theyll win additional theyll take control of the U.S. Senate. To my Republican friends: Be careful not to count your chickens before theyve hatched. Republicans are counting on an American electorate fed up with the policies of President Barack Obama and are still riding the anti-Affordable Care Act train, but Obamacare may not be the pariah in November that it seems to be right now. Just a quick update on the Affordable Care Act: More than health insurance as a result of the law, and the White happens if millions of Americans who didnt previously have health insurance get it, like it and realize that maybe Obamacare isnt the socialistic, communistic, evil, terrible, That rhetoric may work for a March special election in Pinellas County, but we still have more than seven months until voters across the country cast ballots. And while the American people might be getting Obama-fatigue, they may not reward the Republicans, either. The presidents isnt particularly good, but when you look at Congress A recent poll conducted by Public Policy Polling shows Congress with an 8-percent approval rating. bers of Congress are handling their jobs. Instead of Republicans winning in a so-called wave election, we instead may see a different wave one in which challengers defeat incumbents. Regardless of which party controls the House and Senate come January of next year, there are likely to be some new faces around the Capitol and some shocked, recently defeated incumbents lamenting their losses at home.

MONDAY, MARCH 17, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7 National Security Agency phone tapper Joshua Mansfeld was surprised yesterday to wire a phone call from someone he thought hed never see in his queue: his own mother. I was paralyzed, Mansfeld said, I was so stunned, I accidentally whispered Mom? into the headset. Mansfelds colleague Ralph Polowski described the moment as absolutely petrifying and more frightening than the thought that my profession actually exists. Witnesses say Martha Mansfeld, in retime in 15 minutes when they spoke over Skype during his lunch break, simply repeated, Joshie? Joshie? Is that you, Joshie? Joshie? nine times. Before she could hit 10, Patrick, the man who was selling her Tupperware for three payments of $39.99 from an infomercial during The View, interrupted, saying, No, this is Patrick. After four hours of investigation, the NSA Connell, a 17-year Tupperware salesman from Naperville, Ill. He has a clean criminal record. Martha persisted. Just one moment, Patricia, she said. I need to call my son. I think the landline just lost its Wi-Fi connection. The call was disconnected, and in D.C., Mansfelds phone rang. I was so scared, he said. You know that moment when you look at your phone and you see its your mother calling? It was like that. Mansfeld wiped sweat from his brow and answered what is now the NSAs second-most New York resident Dan Druff ordered Middle Eastern take-out cuisine to his apartment. Call logs from Mansfelds phone indicate the conversation lasted 18 minutes, mostly him just muttering yep, uh-uh and OK. During the ordeal, Martha asked her son why he hadnt called home lately, if he had been wearing a sweater, if hed met a woman yet and if he had been wearing a sweater. Fi for the landline, unplugged the landline and then plugged it back in, which she claims did nothing. She called her technical help center, located in Bamra, India, where a Texas now know was actually her microwave. It was terrifying for him, said Timothy Turner, friend and co-worker of Mansfeld. had to listen in to his daughter call that Siberian phone sex operator.

UF WINS FIRST SEC TOURNEY TITLE SINCE 2007. LANDON WATNICKAlligator Staff Writer@LandonWatnickATLANTA Standing at the freethrow line on the front end of a one-andone with 23 seconds on the clock and Florida ahead of Kentucky 61-60, Scottie Wilbekin took three dribbles, bent down and released his shot. No good. When his free throw rimmed out, Dorian Finney-Smith pulled down the rebound and drew a foul on UK guard Andrew Harrison. Now, it was Finney-Smiths turn to try to pad UFs lead with a one-and-one opportunity. No good. The two misses set up an unfavorable situation for Florida: It would have to get one more stop on a Kentucky team that thrives when driving to the rim. Gators put their missed free throws behind them and showed their wisdom in a 6160 victory Sunday against the No. 2 seed Wildcats in the Southeastern Conference Dome. Florida had learned too many lessons from the past to mishandle a late-game situation like this. For the Gators, what went wrong during their loss to UConn in December one that saw Shabazz Napier sink a jumper at the buzzer because of a defensive breakdown by UF came to mind immediately in their huddle as Kentucky coach John Calipari called timeout with 14 seconds left. We just said everybody box your man out so they dont hurt us on the second shot, Wilbekin said. Dont run to the rim like we did at UConn. The strategy worked. Out of the timeout, Harrison wasted about 10 seconds of clock what he admitted postgame was too much time and looked to dish it off to Wildcats guard James Young at the right corner. Wilbekin guarded Harrison, while Michael Frazier II monitored Young. Harrison passed it to Young, and both Wilbekin and Frazier converged on Young at the right elbow. While all of this was happening, UFs Jordan McPherson / Alligator Staff Gators survive last-minute free-throw woes to win SEC Tourney JONATHAN CZUPRYN Alligator Staff Writer@jczuprynATLANTA When Scottie Wilbekin slumped down in his chair in the dimly lit press-conference room located in the bowels of the Jacksonville Memorial Arena on Nov. 25, he did not look like a winner. The senior point guard had just made his 2013-2014 team rules and now it was time to apologize to his friends, family and fans for his lack of responsibility. So on Sunday, when Wilbekin with a smile plastered on his face and confetti clinging to his championship Tshirt stepped up to accept his Southeastern Conference Tournament MVP award after a 61-60 win over Kentucky, it was not just a testament of his teams accomplishment, but also of his ability to mature in just 112 days. When asked how the Gators survived the ups and downs of this season and come out with a perfect league record and No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, Wilbekins answer could have almost applied to his own personal journey as well. It was a struggle at times, Wilbekin said. We came back from what we do. of us and just stick together as a team because thats what we are. Were a team. With a renewed Wilbekin at the helm of this Florida coach Billy Donovan won it three straight times from 2005 to 2007. school to win both the regular-season and tournament championship in the same year since that 2007 nationaltitle squad. And like Wilbekin, the Gators climbed their way to perfection by letting go of the past, which was marred by constant letdowns in their biggest opportunities for success. In 2011 this senior groups inaugural season Florbut fell by 16 to Kentucky. Two years later, Wilbekin and the Gators entered the league championship as the favorites but were shocked sSEE SEEC, paPA GE 15s SEE SIDE, paPA GE 15 UF Mens Bask etball Poll ResultsWill the No. 1 seed Gators mens basketball team win the Southeastern Conference Tournament?91% YEES 9% NO63 total votes

14, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, MARCH 17, 2014 JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Writer@J_McPherson1126ATLANTA After the confetti fell and the nets were cut, Florida learned its spot in the NCAA Tournament. As expected, the Gators captured the No. 1 overall seed. UF, the No. 1 seed in the South Region, will face either Albany or Mount St. Marys on Thursday in Orlando. Both No. 16 seeds will square off on Tuesday. Fresh off a 61-60 win against Kentucky in the Southeastern Conference Tournament Championship, Florida is ready for the next step in the season. Coach [Billy Donovan] told us that after tonight, when we wake up in the morning, this is in the past, sophomore Michael Frazier II said. So I think we got to do a good job of understanding that we need to focus on our next point and focus on our next goal. Mount St. Marys (22-11, 11-7 West Coast Conference) is coming off a 7054 loss to Gonzaga the No. 8 seed in the West Region in the WCC Albany (18-14, 9-7 American East) was rewarded for its 69-60 win against Stony Brook in the American East Tournament with a shot to make it to the Big Dance. If UF wins its second-round contest on Thursday, Florida will continue on in the tournament to play the winner of No. 8 seed Colorado and No. 9 seed Pittsburgh. The rest of the South Region will prove to be a tough ride for Florida, with Kansas, Syracuse and UCLA earning the second, third and fourth seeds, respectively. dence that we can lineup against anyone, senior Patric Young said. We think if were playing the right way, that theres no one we cant beat. But we have to go and do what we did after the regular season was over, start right from the bottom. It starts with the practices, just coming in every single day with a mindset offense and utilizing each other better. Florida struggles at the charity stripe: Before they headed to Atlanta for the SEC Tournament, the Gators connected on 67.9 percent of their free-throw shots. But once they entered the Georgia Dome, they couldnt keep that pace. Florida managed to connect on only half of its shots from the charity stripe through its three tournament games. Outside of senior Casey Prathers 12-of-17 clip from the line, no Florida player made more than half of his attempts from the free throw line. Theres always areas we can get better on. I think free throw shooting is an area we can improve, Donovan said after Floridas 56-49 win against Tennessee on Saturday. We spend time, those guys put time in on their own, we put time in practice. Hopefully that will be an area this time of year that we can get better at, because I think were capable of doing that.Florida awarded No. 1 overall seedJordan McPherson / Alligator StaffPatric Young attempts a free throw during Floridas 61-60 win against Kentucky on Sunday in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

What I would say that our guys have learned is in the moment of something negative happening, being able to move past it and let it go and refocus to the next thing, Donovan said. Thats what they have learned to do. Thats where I think we have gotten better is were a better focused team moving past runs adversity, mistakes, challenges, things not going our way. Now, everything is going the Gators way. Even when they clank two free throws off the rim in a one-point game, they stuck the course and focused on stopping Kentucky on the other side of the court. of Floridas two missed shots from the charity stripe down the stretch, went into the huddle and talked about how the team could prevent the Wildcats from scoring. Not once did the squad mention the missed free throws. And as a result, the Gainesville native and SEC Player of the Year made what Donovan called the most important move of the game. Wilbekin forced Kentuckys Andrew Harrison to his right on the rendering the center of the lane. That defensive scheme led to Harrison dumping off the ball to teammate James Young, who slipped and fell to give the Gators the win. So we were just put in the right situations, and didnt allow us not doing what we normally do in those situations to allow us to not do the next thing, senior Patric Young said. So we put our past mistakes of not stopping their runs and fouling too much behind us and just moved on to the next thing, which is what helped us get it done tonight.

The loss snapped Floridas seven-game winning streak suspension. Logan Shore and Eric Hanhold, the Game 1 and Game 2 starters, held Arkansas to one run in 11.1 combined innings. Puk surrendered three in two frames. Honestly I dont want to say anything. He struggled. He wasnt hitting spots. Everything was up, catcher Braden Mattson said.

Arkansas chased him in the third after a and at the plate. Catcher Jake Wise, hitting seventh, started the inning high as the OConnell Center off the bat. It hooked from left-center to just barely inside the foul pole to give Arkansas a two-run lead. Puk walked two of the next four batters before Brian Anderson doubled them home. Taylor Gushue opened the bottom half with a single to right. The wind turned the hard-hit ball into a routine out. Fly balls would carry a little more down the lines, Bader said.

A poor start carried over to the plate in the three-hour, 14-minute game that Florida never controlled.

We did a great job of communicating, Frazier said. [Wilbekin] played good defense and then I was just able to stay with [Young] and he fell. With time dwindling and the ball up for grabs, Wilbekin and Harrison converged on it. As both were in a tussle on the ground, the buzzer rang and Florida sealed and delivered. Last time we played Kentucky at our place, there was a loose ball that I didnt dive on, and Will (Yeguete) and Casey (Prather) yelled at me for not diving on the ball, and I felt bad, Wilbekin said. So I thought about that, and there was no way I wasnt going to dive on it this game. What helped a veteran Florida group edge past a young Kentucky team Sunday was experience. It has been a quality the Gators have displayed all season, bodied that. Where you could have come out of that timeout Kentucky called with 14 seconds, Dorian FinneySmith hanging his head, Wilbekin hanging his head, I missed the free throw, cant believe it, coach Billy Donovan said. Now theyre not even thinking about the next possession. Theyre worried about what happened at the free-throw line. They did that in their career. That was a problem for them. They have gotten better through those experiences. Thats where I think we have gotten better is were a better focused team moving past runs adversity, mistakes, challenges, things not going our way.
