Tow companies, students clash over rules


By JESSICA PONN
Alligator Writer

Roam towing in Gainesville boils down to
a lack of respect.
The question is, respect from whom?
"They're dismissive, condescending, and
they're just like, 'Screw you, we're not going
to do anything for you,'" said UF student
Brie St. Lawrence about Gainesville towing
companies.


But in reference to those he tows, Mike
Weber, the owner of Superior Towing, said:
"They don't respect their neighbors, they
don't respect other people's property, so they
get towed."
So where amid this towing controversy
- now a significant problem in a college town
short on parking can the truth be differenti-
ated from the catty comebacks?
The answer may lie in an unlikely place:
apartment management.


"The rules are different in just
about every place."
Mike Weber
Superior Towing owner

Weber said it is property management
companies not towing firms that dictate
which parking indiscretions are handled with
a hook and a towrope and which are not.
"The rules are different in just about every


place," Weber said.
In Royal Village apartments, if a vehicle is
parked on a white line, it will not be towed,
said Derrick Gilland, assistant manager of the
complex. In Looking Glass apartments, that
same vehicle would be towed, Weber said.
St. Lawrence, who lives at Looking Glass,
said she has been towed twice this school year
for parking on a white line, or as Weber calls it,

Local artist Adam Lansky, 23, works on a piece of modern art Wednesday afternoon on Turlington Plaza as
onlookers marvel at the seeming confusion.


* HE SAYS ART IS THERA-
PEUTIC FOR HIM.

By KATIE PACKER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Splattering paint on a canvas
is not just child's play. For Adam
Lansky, it's therapy.
When he feels overwhelmed
with stress and personal issues,
Lansky, a 23-year-old local artist,
resorts to painting.
He is creating his abstract,
emotion-filled art, called "action
painting," on Turlington Plaza this
week, to promote his modem art
exhibit.
As a small crowd formed
around him while classes switched
Wednesday at 12:35 p.m., Lansky
threw paint from various heights
onto canvases. When he flung the
paint, the streams fused and split
in the air before splattering on the


canvas. The result resembled a
swirled rainbow.
"The creation of a piece is the
work of art, not the finished piece
itself," Lansky said. "I try to create
a rhythm on paper."
At 19, Lahsky discovered how
therapeutic throwing paint could
be. He felt misplaced because of
his parents' divorce
On when he was 12,
CampuS which made him
"skeptical about
life."
As he entered college at Florida
State University, the skepticism
stayed with him, and he was un-
able to find a major. Instead of
throwing away his life, he started
throwing paint.
His action art is improvised,
and he chooses colors based on
how he is feeling when he creates
the piece.

Lewis Black draws crowds with O-Dome performance


He was paid $50K for the show


By ADRIAN ERLENBACH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Thousands of students lined up
Wednesday night to see comedian Lewis
Black, a contributor to "The Daily Show
With John Stewart."
They began snaking along the sidewalk
outside the O'Connell Center before 5:30


p.m. in anticipation of Black's scheduled
performance at 8 p.m.
Black touched on topics such as
growing up Jewish, illegal immigration;
Mormons and flag-burning. He was paid
$50,000 for his performance.
His show followed that of comedian
John Bowman, who discussed topics such
as mountain climbing, George W. Bush's

SFCC Student Government
elections ended Wednesday_
without a dear winner.
After the community college's
student body voted Tuesday and
Wednesday, a dear majority did
not emerge, leaving the Genesis
and the United Students parties
to face off in a runoff election
next week.
This year was the largest
voter turnout SFCC has ever
seen, with 1,761 total votes 12
percent of the student body par-
ticipating.
Dan Rodkin, SFCC's associate
director of student life, said com-
munity colleges typically only
see a 2- to 3-percent student voter
turnout for SG elections.
However, the total number of
votes in each race varied.
Out of the 1,739 votes in the
executive race, Genesis Party
presidential candidate Kenny
Etienne and vice presidential
candidate Alina Gershonov re-
ceived 44 percent, while United
Students presidential candidate
Tara McDowell and vice presi-
dential candidate Ben Anderson
received 26 percent.
"I am very shocked and
pleased to see that the student
body wants to be more involved
with Student Government,"
Etienne said of the turnout.
McDowell said she antici-
pates that the One Party and the
Liger Party will join the United
Students Party to inform stu-,
dents about issues they are pre-
pared to tackle if elected.
The treasurer candidates
are Kaia Tershowski from the

She prayed he wouldn't find out the se-
cret she tried so hard to keep the pad she
kept in her bra to make her breasts appear to
be the same size.
But awkward dates are now a distant
memory for UF freshman Kellie Llona, who
had breast augmentation surgery when she
was 14 years old. Llona struggled for years
with insecurities because of the drastic dif-
ference in the sizes of her breasts, she said.
One was anA cup, and the other was a C.
A UF professor's study, which appears
in Plastic Surgical Nursing, was meant to
emphasize breast surgery cases like Llona's.
The study was conducted to show that
breast surgery isn't just a procedure done
for vanity reasons, said Cynthia Figueroa-
Haas, a UF clinical assistant professor.
Since the surgery is becoming more
popular; evaluating health professionals' at-

in 2006, according to the American Society
of Plastic Surgeons Web site.
Figueroa-Haas conducted her study at
Barry University before coming to UP. She
surveyed 84 women between the ages of 21
and 57 before and after their surgeries and
found that most experienced increased self-
esteem and sexuality.
Llona said she's not an exception.
"I feel a lot better about
Public myself," she said. "If not for

conscious."
Before, a wet bathing suit would reveal
the pad. Now, Llona has the confidence to
wear clothes she couldn't before.
Although Llona said she first realized
in fifth grade that one breast was larger
than the other, middle school was when the
tears came. By eighth grade, Llona began to
doubt she'd ever fit in. She felt she couldn't
do things that her classmates took for grant-
ed, like wearing low-cut shirts or dating.
"I couldn't imagine ever having a boy-
friend," said Llona, who now has just ended
a two-year relationship.


that."
Later in the school year, Llona's mother
decided to take her to a plastic surgeon. Her
insurance company covered the costs of the
surgery because she was diagnosed with
Poland syndrome, the underdevelopment
of the chest muscle on one side of the body.
With the implants, both of her breasts are
full C cups, she said.
Figueroa-Haas said her research was
conducted to raise more awareness, espe-
cially for health care providers, of the psy-
chological issues related to breast surgery.
She said she hopes her study leads to more
research on cosmetic surgery and self-es-
teem. But though the surgery can boost
confidence, it's not a cure-all, she said.
"If you have psychological issues, im-
plants won't help that," she said.
Although Llona said she was in pain and
still swollen after a week of recovery, she felt
better about herself almost immediately.
"Before the surgery, I thought people
should be happy with what they have,"
Llona said. "But if it's going to make you
happy, go for it."

Vigil raises rape awareness


* COORDINATORS WANT TO MAKE IT AN
ANNUAL EVENT AT UF.

By A.J. DAVIDSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
Students gathered Wednesday night on the
Plaza of the Americas for "Take Back the Night,"
a national campaign aimed at fighting and raising
awareness about sexual violence.
"The purpose of Take Back the Night' is to
generate awareness about sexual assault and rape,
to break the silence surrounding this issue, and to
basically work toward a community where rape
is not tolerated and rape doesn't happen," said
Jennifer Kent, a law student at UF and the event's
main coordinator.
The event began at 7 p.m. with a candlelight vigil
honoring victims of sexual violence. Afterward stu-
dents, led by a police escort, marched to the Reitz
Union, where survivors shared their stories and
participants spoke about sexual violence.
"The speak-out gives people a voice and gives
them an opportunity to feel empowered, take back
their power and raise awareness about sexual vio-
lence," said Tanja van der Veen, a victim's advocate
with the Univesity Police Department. "It's putting
a face on the issue."
The event played host to a diverse crowd of


more than 50 students that included men, women,
survivors and those who simply wanted to aid.
"I am taking back the night because I'm a wom-
en's studies student," said Mallory Szymanski, a UF
graduate student. "I find it important to be teaching
about these issues in the classroom and to be put-
ting them into practice outside of the classroom."
Kent and her colleagues began planning the
event in September in an attempt to establish "Take
Back the Night" at UE The campaign is already
prevalent on many college campuses.
"It's not something that's really
On had an institutional history at UF,"
CaMP us Kent said. "We want to see 'Take Back
the Night' become an institution at the
University of Florida because it's more than just an
event it's a campaign, really, something to work
toward ending rape at the University of Florida and
in Gainesville."
Although the event saw a modest number of stu-
dents, coordinators were pleased with the turnout
and hope to increase numbers with future "Take
Back the Night" events.
"I thought it was amazing the fact that the
speak-out was able to provide a safe space for survi-
vors of sexual assault to come forward. For some of
them to get the help that they need, that to me was
worth a thousand of these," Kent said. "I think this
is a really strong beginning. It's something that is
the start of a movement."


Black joked about politics


BLACK, from page 1

ous," Cedros said. "He paces
around the stage like he's so
angry, and he has really funny
facial expressions."
Cedros said his favorite
part was when Black talked
about young conservatives.
Black said he was shocked
,that college students could be
conservative, because you're
supposed to become more con-
servative as you get older.
"What are you going to be
then?" Black asked the audi-
ence. "Nazis?"
To end the show, Black read
the audience two news stories
to cheer them up after his "de-
pressing performance." They
were about a "circus dwarf"
who was eaten by a hippo-
potamus and a freak accident
involving a couple having oral
sex while cooking breakfast.


"I believe that that should be
a Bible story," Black said of the
accident story.
He concluded the night with
an encouraging message for his
young audience: He advised
them to ignore the fear of the
post-Sept. 11 world and enjoy
life.
"Even the Jews love
Santa."
Lewis Black
comedian/Accent speaker

"This is your time," he said.
"Do anything you want with
your life."
Black received a standing
ovation from the crowd. The
event was put on by Accent -
UF's student-run speakers bu-
reau and Jewish Awareness
Month, a Student Government-
sponsored organization.

Editorial


Welcome back

We hope Chomp the Vote

sticks around this time
homp the Vote has finally returned. Well, almost. After
almost a year of inactivity, Chomp is accepting applica-
tions for a new director. Once it has a new one, it better hit
the ground running. It's got to make up for a lot of lost time.
Of course, the organization never should have gone away
in the first place. The Student Government-run organization
faltered under Director Hannah Hillman, who fell off the radar
when she should have been working to register new voters.
While Chomp was MIA, a lot happened. It missed state-
wide elections, in which we elected our new governor and a
U.S. senator, and then city elections, in which we voted for our
mayor and a city'commissioner. A pretty big deal, and some-
thing Chomp should not have let pass it by. But it's time for a
fresh start.
So what do we Want to see from the new and improved
organization?
Obviously, its priority should be registering new voters. But
it doesn't make sense to table year-round. We're procrastinators,
and we're damn proud of it. Instead, Chomp should bombard
us a few weeks before registration deadlines. High visibility -
and a huge annoyance factor will be more effective than one
lonely person sitting on Turlington Plaza with a stack of forms.
Students who are already registered to vote should yeg-
ister in Alachua County. This is, after all, where we spend at
least two-thirds of the year. Local politics affect us more than
what's going on back home. If we want a student-friendly City
Commission, we need to vote for it.
And Chomp needs to get people to care. How can it do that?
It's a hard question to answer, but working with Accent to bring
in political speakers and candidates for office is one way. It's
also important to bring in current politicians state senators,
local representatives and UF alumni who are currently serving
office. If Chomp shows students exactly what these elected of-
ficials do for us, students will participate more actively in the
system.
This isn't about partisan politics, and it's not about
Democrats or Republicans. This is about getting students'
voices our voices heard.



Beating a dead horse


Let's just drop it already.
After the Faculty
Senate denied former
Gov. Jeb Bush an honorary
degree last week, the Alumni
Association turned around
and slapped the Senate in the
face by granting him honorary
alumnus status. And Tuesday,
the Student Senate passed a
resolution honoring him.
All this political back-and-
forth makes us dizzy.
The degree is only a sym-
bolic gesture, and this whole
ordeal has been blown out of
proportion.
UF President Bernie
Machen is pissed because
he's trying to schmooze
a Republican-controlled
Legislature into passing his


"Academic Enhancement
Program." That's all well and
good, but an honorary degree
- the denial or approval -
should have no influence over
the way politicians vote. This
is grade-school logic: Apples
and oranges are not the same,
and one action should not af-
fect another.
The fact remains that the
Faculty Senate felt Bush was
not deserving of an honorary
degree--- and it has every
right to think that.
The backpedaling
of Bernie, the Alumni
Association and the Student
Senate- can only bandage this
wound. But underneath the
gauze, the flesh is still cut. At
this point, just let it heal.

Tuition fee disguises the real problem


When Ifirst examined the "Academic Enhancement
Program" a semester ago, I supported it. Why
not charge incoming students $1,000 more each
year to hire more faculty and advisers? More than 70 per-
cent of students receive some form of the Bright Futures
scholarship already, and, after all, higher education comes
at a price.
But I've changed my mind. Universities like UF are es-
sential. Great education at an affordable price what's so
bad about that? Not every university, even Florida's flag-
ship, needs to function like a private one.
In a society where a college education is practically a
prerequisite for a making a decent living, increasing the
cost of education is not the answer. UF President Bernie
Machen is asking the wrong questions. He asks, "How
do I make this university a top-10 public university?" But
instead, he should ask, "What is the best possible way to
help students afford education?"
Machen has also been peculiarly vague about which
departments will benefit from the new hires. This univer-
sity has a strong proclivity toward supporting big-name
programs, such as the sciences and engineering where
the research money is while ignoring the less-market-
able programs like the arts and humanities.
And according to an article in The Gainesville Sun,
Machen made it quite clear that the university's future
growth would be in graduate programs. But the recently
conducted report by the Pappas Consulting Group Inc.
recommended that all public Florida universities focus
solely on undergraduate and not graduate programs. So
where will the new faculty hires go? Toward graduate or
undergraduate programs?
True, the 100 new advisers are intended for under-
graduates. But why do we need more advisers? Part of
earning a college degree should be self-sufficiency. If you
can't navigate your way to a degree with the occasional
special visit to an adviser you probably don't deserve


one.
Obviously, our. university
needs some improvements, and
charging $1,000 more per stu-
dent each year seems reasonable
but it's not that simple.
University of Central Florida's
Todd.PortnowitZ president, John Hitt, has al-
letters@alligator.org ready admitted that if it passes,
the "Academic Enhancement
Program" would start a trend
of statewide charges. Hitt said UCF and other Florida
universities withheld from lobbying for their own tu-
ition hikes in order to boost the chances of UF's passing
- which would give those other schools the green light
for tuition increases.
Hopefully, Gov. Charlie Crist will hold to his "no new
tuition" claim and refuse to support the program. Let
Crist's will be done. Not because the reasons for the tu-
ition hike aren't logical, but because as a university and
as a state we're not trying hard enough or looking in
the right places for money to put toward education. We're
caving.
Money and education have always conflicted. The so-
lution is a matter of priority. As long as the state continues
to underfund education, the universities will be forced to
look elsewhere. This results in a standstill for UF. The state
refuses to properly fund education, while at the same time
it denies its universities the tuition hikes they need. It's a
lose-lose situation.
The "Academic Enhancement Program" won't solve
this problem. It merely shifts the burden to the wrong
wallets, the wallets of the middle- and lower-class families
- not the bulging, George Constanza-sized wallet of the
state government.

umn appears on Thursdays.

Letters to the : ..iJ'
UF's diversity hiring policies are racist
I have a few questions about the diversity
problems that plague Tigert Hall and the UF
faculty. What is UF's diversity goal? Is it to be
an institution where faculty and students are
judged not by their race, but by the content of
their character? If so, how could anyone just
look at the races of faculty members and tell
that there are diversity problems?
UF President Bernie Machen said, "The
numbers sort of speak for themselves"? I say


Machen is sort of racist. One could argue that
the numbers are smoke to a racist fire that is
ablaze. When 54 out of 65 top administrators
are white, something must be going on.
Look at the U.S. Census breakdown of the
U.S. population by race. Will the numbers tell
of a diverse university when the percentage of
each race in the faculty perfectly corresponds
to the percentage of each race in the nation's
population? I might be confusing diver-
sity and racism, but if achieving the former


requires a whole lot of the latter, I'd prefer to
be ignorant to the difference between the two.

SG should not fund partisan messages
On Page 8 of Tuesday's Alligator, an adver-
tisement appeared listing the signers of a peti-


tion that supports Israel. The group that paid
for it is not identified. Instead it says, "Paid
for by Student Government." While I do not
disagree with the petition I signed it and I
am listed in the ad students should ask their
senators "to investigate the possible misuse of
SG money. I may support Israel, but I do not
support the use of SG funds in an obviously
partisan political message.

Pike wrongly condemned by UF, Alligator, Greek community


Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity's
punishment was not,' as
the Opinions pages of the
Alligator clamor to say, "too light."
If anything, it was completely out of
line, as is all of the dancing on our
mass grave.
I feel that Dean of Students Gene
Zdziarski's extension of the initial
punishment by two years solely for
our "failure to accept responsibility
for or to acknowledge the serious-
ness of (our) conduct" is reprehensi-
ble. Angered by the lack of evidence
in the case, as well as the evidence
in our favor namely, that no girls


were drugged or raped, and that the
school had previously made us get
rid of our security team Zdziarski
doubled the suspension.
Make no mistake: We understand
-the seriousness of the charges, but I
put no credence in them because
of their weak support. Fraternities
have done truly disturbing things in
the past and gotten off with lighter
punishments. We're being nailed to
the wall because an ill-fitting repu-
tation precedes us and because we
fought for our fraternity instead of
groveling at the feet of UF's admin-
istration.


Ken After the
Schwencke state dropped
Speaking Out all charges
and the UF
GreekJudicial
Board cleared us of hazing, UF still
went full force with all it had: ac-
cusations of underage drinking on
game day and insubstantial charges
about actions committed with disre-
gard to possible harm. People look
at our fraternity's tenuous history
and happily condemn us without
hearing our side of the story.
If past sanctions against us are a
definitive proof of guilt in this case,

KATE KENNEDY P AVENUE WRITER
Vou'l miss it if you're not careful.
A small wooden sign at the mouth of a
dirt driveway in Games ille reads, "Qualts
for Sale "
On the door ot the one-story house is a
handwritten note to vLsijtors instructing them
to knock- loudly and be parent because it
might take a httle while for someone to an-
swer the door.
Inside, the comer of the living room holds
a small stack ot quilts. all made with care.
Roxie Taylor. often known as simply
Granny, learned how to quilt from her moth-
er and she sells her creations from her home
tor $45 apiece. She doesn't make much of a
profit, but that doesn't matter to her
"1 love to do it," she said.
While most of Roxie's quilts have gone to
members of her vast extended family, the sign
by the road shepherds strangers in as well.
"They go by and see the sign every day,
and they just decide to stop." said Patrcia
Harrington. Roxie's 70-year-old daughter
Any e\tra income helps and Roxie is no
stranger to making ends meet

Ro\ie turns 95 on Sunday She is one of
eight children and has lived m the Gainesville
area all her life.
Her rather was a sharecropper in the
nearby town ot Fairbanks, and Roue remem-
bers ending the 7 miles into Gainesvfile on a
horse-drawmn wagon to sell cucumbers and
green beans. Her face softens into a smile as
she recalls the horseshoes clopping on brick
when trotting down what is now Uruversity
A'.enue.
Roxie was 6 years old when World War
I broke out in Europe. Her father remained
home due to a heart murmur Wartime took
a toll on the domestic economy, and tarmer-
suffered a big hit.
"We never thought we were poor," she
said. "But we were."
Roxie's mother died when Roxie was lust
a toddler. All eight children and their father
were packed into a t~o-bedroom house
School tor Roie was a one-room building
about a mile and a quarter down the road.
SLi months out of the year, she and her sib-
lings would walk to the schoolhouse weanng
homemade dresses and swinging their lunch

'-" music

Of Montreal plays tonight

DAVID LOW I AVENUE WRITER


Remedy raps 'P.E.A.C.E.'


Georgie Fruit is a 300-pound, black
she-male. She's in her mid-50s and has
seen it all: She writes funk songs for Of
Montreal and will be performing with
the band at Abbey Road tonight.
But Fruit lives only in the mind
of the wiry Kevin Barnes, singer and
guitarist of the Athens, Ga., band.
Her neighbors, to name a few, include
the eccentric Claude Robert and the
thoughtful, mellow Lisp Crispy.
Alter egos are powerful tools in
songwriting, said Bryan Poole, a
guitarist and band member since Of
Montreal's inception.
"Sometimes you start to repeat
yourself," Poole said. "If you can place
yourself as a differ-
ent persona, it allows If you cc
you to be creative in s a ad
a different way. You allows you to be
Sferent way. You
actually become that that diffe
different being."
Poole has experi- guitarist for Of
ence with alter egos
himself, having
played as Bryan Helium with the band
Elf Power and gone as The Late B.P.
Helium on his solo efforts.
He said Barnes' ability to use differ-
ent personas in making Of Montreal's
latest album helped him express the
very personal content dealt with on the
record.
The band's latest album, "Hissing
Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?" was
written by Barnes in the midst of the
time when he was going through a
separation with his wife. The marriage
was later reconciled.
Because the experience was so emo-
tional, Barnes had trouble letting the
other band members get involved in
the album, Poole said.
But totalitarianism over album con-
tent isn't anything new for Of Montreal.
Throughout the band's existence, it has
gone back and forth between band col-
laboration and Barnes' solo work.
Barnes recorded most of "Hissing
Fauna" himself while living in Norway,
Poole said. Even though Barnes had
shown the other band members his
initial ideas for songs, the end results

sometimes surprised them.
"When I hear that album as it's re-
leased now, sometimes I turn my head
and I'll be like, 'What? What the hell
was that? I don't remember that. Where
the hell did that'come from?'" Poole
said. "It may be a little bit weird for us
as a band to not have that participation
in it."
He said he hopes that the next album
will be more of a collective effort.
But performing live is a different
matter entirely. The band interacts on
stage in a bizarre display that is intend-
ed to "transport you to a weird place,"
Poole said.
Fashion is a large part of this vision,
he said. The band
place yourself members take their
rent persona, it cues from the eccen-
creative in a dif-
ctually become tric greats like Sly &
nt being, the Family Stone, Sun
Bryan Poole Ra and David Bowie.
lontreal ** "We wanted to
ontreal make it a theatri-
cal thing," he said.
"There are so many bands that get up
there and play in an indie rock T-shirt
or something like that, and there's
nothing really wrong with that, per se,
but we want it to be a spectacle to kind
of take you out of just seeing a normal
show so you're like, 'Wow, what the hell
is going on?'"
Many fans were thinking exactly
that when Of Montreal played a show
in Las Vegas last month in which Kevin
Barnes came onstage completely naked,
save a cummerbund, which covered
nothing.
"Kevin just wanted to see if he had
the balls to do it," Poole said. "No one
was really upset by it. If you were at
that show that night, you would prob-
ably be more upset about the black, gay
porn we had playing in the background
than Kevin actually getting naked."
It may not be the last show that
Barnes struts his stuff, but the band
will keep it toned down at the all-ages
shows, he said.
"Sometimes it's better when the
clothes are on," Poole said. "Leaves a
little bit to the imagination."


SHEM FLEENOR I AVENUE WRITER
Just after 4 p.m. in Midtown Manhattan
on March 22, Ross Filler better known
to hip-hop aficionados and indie-kids as
"Remedy" exhales a hazy, aromatic
plume of smoke.
Misty rays of sunlight cascade between
ash-gray skyscrapers.
Bundled-up bicyclists and cheddar-yel-
low taxis zoom by like flashes of lightning.
"You've got to take a right here," said
Filler to his friend Jamie, the driver.
Filler gets calm and focused as the
jet-black Dodge Charger whips around
the corer towards the Hammerstein
Ballroom, where he'll perform his classic
anthem "Never Again" while marching
boxer Dmitry Salita to
the ring. [Rem
Salita is inspired by the a rap
legendary track, which metaf
helped propel the Wu- Josh Wel
Tang Killa Bee compila- sound
tion album, "The Swarm,
Vol. 1," featuring every
member of the Wu-Tang Clan, to sell more
than a million copies worldwide.
The track was inspired by Filler's family
members in Poland, who were killed dur-
ing the Holocaust.
"Mankind has been recording his-
tory for 5,000 years," Filler said. "The
Holocaust happened 60-something years
ago. I couldn't believe it. I still can't. The
whole world sat back and watched as mil-
lions were persecuted and killed. That's
what makes 'Never Again' so important,
so timeless."
In 1998, after Filler spent years unearth-
ing his roots, RZA, the founder of Wu-Tang
Clan, approached him to add a track to
"The Swarm."
The album proved to be the perfect
rocket to blast "Never Again" into orbit.
The song was written and refined during
two simmering, soul-searching months.
Filler's mental image of his Uncle Boris
being shof in the back and of his family be-
ing herded onto cattle trains and provided
inspiration for the track.
"The beat was just so deep," he said. "It
just kind of came together. I cried a bunch
of times making that."
His "search for self-knowledge" took
him to Israel, a country that, he said, for


Jews, feels like a warm hug on a cold day
from a loved one you thought you'd never
see again.
"There's good spirits flying around in
Israel," he said. "It's beautiful. I lived there
90 days and saw the sunrise 73 times."
In 2004, he produced "New York to
Israel," a compilation featuring some of
Israel's sharpest producers and lyricists,
including rapper Subliminal.
But his trip to Israel was as much spiri-
tual odyssey as it was business venture.
His odyssey brings him to UF tonight.
He plans to perform some classics and new
tracks such as "Israel," an evolutionary
account of Jewish history that's as much a
doctoral thesis as it is hip-hop.
The sunset performance is hosted by
Hillel and takes place
dy is] not just at the Reitz Union
er. He's a poet Amphitheatre at 8 p.m.
ysicist. Josh Wetherington,
erington 26, of Boca Raton, was
engineer sound engineer at
Remedy's show March
/ 20 at Florida Atlantic
University.
"Don't just expect a hip-hop show, ex-
pect a religious experience," Wetherington
said. "He's not just.a rapper. He's a poet
metaphysicist."
Filler's performance tonight is meant
to promote the RemedyIsraelProgram and
spark an enhanced concept of Jewish self-
identity through hip-hop.
"But it's not just for Jews," he said.
"Hip-hop belongs to all of humanity."
Filler has been known to push
"P.E.A.C.E." on stage. The acronym stands
for Positive Education Always Corrects
Errors.
He is confident that education is a giant
leap toward ending the hatred festering be-
tween Muslims, Jews and Christians.
Filler's philosophical stamp is evident
in all his artistic and economic ventures,
including his record label, Code Red,
which produced fellow Wu family mem-
ber Cappadonna's latest album, "The
Struggle."
"The only thing that separates man
from beast is our brains," he said. "Yeah,
some people only respect violence man's
always just one step away from doing some
crazy shit. But in the end, you've got to
keep the faith. You know?"

smoggier than Los Angeles as I arrived
there that Saturday. I felt self-conscious
as I entered the land of the glamorous
and its sea of bronzed beauties.
With our initial reunion at the air-
port, I decided it was too late to hold
anything back.
I hadn't bought a $300 plane ticket
to have my inhibitions yield a week of
pa-Sl-ionles sex.
I began thinking like a seductress

I frantically focused on the figure

and realizing who it was, I went to

and delayed gratification, we began
kissing everywhere, ravenously, like
skin was our only source of oxygen.
We quickly shed our clothes.
Everything was as hot if not hot-

reaching greater degrees of intimacy.
I awoke the last day feeling truly
exhausted, knowing that I was about
to enter another dry season.
But I could now look forward to our
next reunion and the challenge of top-
ping the best sex of my life.

Swing Away


Jessie Mudd has lost his game in Gainesville I


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Writer

Every golfer has his own swing.
Some are born with it; others spend their entire lives look-
ing for it.
But for those who are lucky enough to find their swing, it
can be just as easily forgotten and in this sport it may never
come back. As the only senior on the UF's men's golf team,
Jessie Mudd is still looking.
Mudd doesn't see much playing time these days, but there
was a time when his was the next big thing, the next great
Gators golfer. Mudd remembers these days, and recounts a
story that is not a typical fall from grace, rather
a chance lost but not forgotten.
Mudd may soon find what he's looking for,
or he may not it's hard to say. in my game

The Early Years Je
Mudd began playing at the age of 3. His father put a
dub in his hand hoping he would follow in the footsteps of his
son's two uncles both PGA Tour professionals.
Mudd picked up the game quickly.
"Ever since I could remember, I had a set of golf dubs
around," he said. "I always enjoyed playing."
Mudd's high school days are full of accolades. He led St.
Xavier High School in Louisville, Ky., to three state champion-
ships in 1998-99,2001-02 and 2002-03.
Along the way, he was named Kentucky's Mr. Golf twice
and headed into his senior year ranked as the No. 1 high school
player in the country by Golfweek.
The expectations were high for Mudd as he began to look
ahead. With two relatives connected to UF coach Buddy
Alexander, the decision was an easy one.
"Warm weather," Mudd said smiling. "How could you go
wrong?"

The College Life
In his first year at UF, Mudd played on one of the greatest
teams in school history.
In 2003-04, the team finished in the top five in all 11 of its
matches, including seven first-place finishes. However, the
season would come to a disappointing end when the Gators
finished sixth in the NCAA Championships. Playing alongside
Gators legend Camilo Villegas, Mudd was the hot-shot fresh-
man. He was a PING honorable mention All-American, named


Co-Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Year and was a
second-team All-SEC selection.
Mudd also posted the fourth-best scoring average by a
freshman in school history (72.69). It was here that he made
what he calls the biggest mistake of his life.
"I didn't play even once over the summer," he said with his
eyes turned downward. "I came back pretty rusty."
Things got worse for Mudd.
Season-ending ankle surgery forced him to redshirt the
2004-05 season, missing even more time.
"When you take that much time off it begins to take a toll on
you," he said. "Mentally you begin to think you're going to be
rusty and when you are, a few bad scores here and there really
hurt your confidence."
When Mudd returned he said his confi-
dence was gone.
..But I just can't seem "I lost the belief that I could hit a good
shot at any time of the round," he said.
ssie Mudd Mudd has no idea why he took the sum-
mer of 2004 off. He said he wishes he could change
the past, but hindsight is 20-20.
If he could do it all over again he would have played every
chance he could. Hopefully then he would have been able to
weather the time spent recovering from his injury.
"I wish I only knew," he said. "Sometimes there are no good
reasons."
In 2005-06, Mudd played individually in two tourna-
ments, finishing 23th and 66th respectively.
He only saw team action once, where at the Shoal Creek
Invitational he recorded a combined score of 231(15 over par),
which was good for a tie for 63rd place.

The Finish
Mudd hoped to see more action this spring.
Playing time is up for grabs on this young Gators team,
where inconsistency at the three, four and fives spots have
opened things up. So far, the Gators have played four tourna-
ments. Mudd has not picked up a dub for competitive play.
UF opened the season at the Gator Invitational, winning
by 11 strokes behind strong play from junior Manuel Villegas,
who won the individual medal with a three-round total of 204
(6 under par), and sophomore All American Billy Horschel,
who carded a 68 (2 under) in his final round.
However, after the match Alexander said the team lacked
consistency and the lineup was due to change.
"After Manuel and Billy it's really up for grabs," he said. "I

college career is winding down.
need somebody to blossom between now and June."
Mudd is fully aware of this opportunity, but said his game
still remains inconsistent.
"Its going to take a lot," he said. "I would have to shoot
a lot of really low numbers and everyone else would need to
play poorly."
The Gators have one meet before the postseason, the U.S.
Collegiate Championship in Alpharetta, Ga.
There isn't much time left for Mudd to put back together the
shattered expectations from a few years ago.
"I do see real improvement in my game," Mudd said. "But I
just can't seem to connect it all together."

The Future
Mudd's experience has changed his outlook on life.
When he was a freshman, he had aspirations of leaving col-
lege after his sophomore year and going pro. Now, the plan has
changed. Mudd still hopes to one day reach that pinnade but
knows the path will not be an easy one.
"The experience was an eye-opening one," he said.
"Sometimes things don't go your way, but that doesn't mean
you can give up. I may not be as confident as I once was, but
I know I can do it, its just going to be a lot of hard work, a lot
of time."
Getting there won't be easy, but Mudd has the support of his
teammates and coaches, especially Manuel Villegas. Villegas
and Mudd came to UF in the same freshman dass and have
been friends the entire time. Villegas sends text messages to
Mudd telling him he's playing better and to keep practicing.
The two players have gone in opposite directions over their
careers, as Villegas is now one of the top players in the country.
Mudd said there is no jealously, just a lot of appreciation and
pride. Mudd played with Villegas' brother Camilo and said
there are no similarities.
"Camilo was a perfectionist," he said. "Manny loses stuff all
the time. During the Gator Invitational he lost his keys on the
fourth hole, I'm not even sure how you do that."
Mudd said Alexander often pulls, him aside and tells him
how he's improving. He has also been seeing team psycholo-
gist Gio Valiante, hoping to instill a positive attitude as he looks
to improve.
"He's a warrior in my book," Alexander said. "Most people
don't go from being such a great talent to where he is in their
careers, but he never gives up. I have so much respect for
him."
Mudd believes his troubles are mental, and a golf swing
once considered one of the best in the nation still lurks within.
"It's there if you look hard enough," he said. "You just have
to find it."

through some of the signs that departed
fans had left behind.
Some of the printable ones included
"Noah is Ugly" and "Hey Joakim,
Buckwheat Wants his Hair Back," and those
were in addition to the standard "Noah's
Gay" chants.
This year, he had a cheerleader thrust her


pompoms in his face and had Vanderbilt
coach Kevin Stallings slap his hand away
from a ball, although the incident was
downplayed.
Now, I won't compare myself to someone
of Noah's stature, but I was heckled after
screwing up a routine play in a high school
volleyball playoff game, and it got to me for
a brief moment.
But I can't imagine being subjected to
that type of harassment through an entire


40-minute basketball game.
He brings some of the crap on himself by
pounding his chest and screaming a lot, but
for some reason, when he does it, it doesn't
strike me as showing up the opposition or
being cocky like I typically think of those.
things.
And despite all the hype, distractions
and expectations, Noah was still named a
second-team All-American this week.
He still plays great defense and runs the


floor well.
His rebounding is up and he's still the
emotional heart and soul of a team that has
won 66 games (an absurd number, by the
way) the past two seasons.
And don't look now, but he's declared
that the Gator Boys are hot once again.
This is his time, and with everything he's
had thrown in his direction throughout this
season, I wouldn't be the one trying to put
out the flames.


DT challenges hoops team

FOOT, from page 24

He played 19 games for Billy
Donovan as a freshman before
turning solely to football.
While in high school, Ingram
played against Chris Richard,
Taurean Green and Corey Brewer
in AAU games. Ingram is still close
with Richard and talks to him ev-
ery other day and after games.
"I talk to the guys all the time,"
Ingram said. "I basically tell them
how good the team looks, and all
the football guys are rooting for
them."
Richard and center Marreese
Speights spent their day off at foot-
ball practice on Monday and spoke
with Ingram afterwards.
But it wasn't an isolated inci-
dent. Players on both teams joke
around together, shooting the
breeze and playing video games.
"I'm real good friends with a
lot of them, Chris Richard, Joakim
(Noah), all of those guys," defen-
sive tackle Clint McMillan said.
"There's a really good relationship


with both of the teams."
There's such a strong bond that
McMillan has a challenge for the
hoops squad.
He'd like to set up a pickup
game once the hoops team returns
from Atlanta.
"It's tough to find a time, but
it could definitely be arranged,"
McMillan said.
"We've got a lof of
guys on the team

Football that's all the basket-
ball team does. We
would probably lose by 50, but
we'll play hard and play defense
and rebound."
Meyer brought Donovan, Noah,
Richard and Al Horford before last
season to speak to his team about
what it takes to win a title.
Meyer and Donovan are good
friends and neighbors.
On Wednesday, Meyer was
asked to divulge his inside infor-
mation on the Donovan rumors.
"I don't know," he said.
Guess the two teams aren't
close enough.

[ Meyer names Moore No. 1 RB

UF running back Kestahn Moore takes a carry during the Gators' practice
on Wednesday at the UF practice fields.


* BRANDON JAMES IS SECOND ON THE
DEPTH CHART.

By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Writer

With the loss of starting running back DeShawn
Wynn, the UF football team is looking for a replace-
ment for last year's leading rusher.
UF coahd Urban Meyer said the Gators have
found their answer in junior Kestahn Moore.
"K-Mo is really doing well, he's our starting tail-
back," Meyer said. "Brandon James is No. 2, and
then (Chevon Walker) and Mon (Williams)."
In addition to strong spring practices, Moore
has improved as a leader as well.
"He's taken on the leadership role, and he's do-
ing everything right with the way he's practic-
ing and his whole demeanor," UF running backs
coach Stan Drayton said.
"The way he's leading that group right now is
really impressing me. I'm proud of him."
All four backs looked strong in Wednesday's
practice, but Walker distinguished himself with
several big runs.
"He came out of a couple of piles and showed a
little speed like he has," Meyer said.
James has performed well in the backfield but
will remain on special teams.
The Gators worked on kickoff returns for the
first time this spring, with James and Jarred Fayson
getting most of the work.
Despite having just one upperclassman at run-
ning back, Drayton is confident his young group
will improve and make an impact.
"These guys are determined to get better," he
said. "Today we came out and ran the ball pretty


hard. I see a lot of great effort coming out of this
backfield right now."

RICKERSON BACK: Redshirt freshman cornerback
Jacques Rickerson participated in his second
practice since recovering from knee surgery last
"season.
"I'm just getting my wind back," he said. "I was
a little winded the first couple days, but now I'm
getting back into a groove and everything."
Rickerson was expected to contribute -ast sea-
son, but attitude problems and the knee injury kept
him off the field.
"I was a little winded the first couple
days, but now I'm getting back into a
groove and everything."
Jacques Rickerson
UF cornerback

With a clean slate, he is determined to crack the
starting lineup this year.
"I feel like the pressure is all on me," he said.
"(The coaches) were looking forward to me (partic-
ipating) last year but I kind of let them down. This
year I'm trying to put everything I have into it so I
don't let them down again. I'm really excited now
to play in the Swamp. It's going to be crazy."

ETC: Running back signee Chris Rainey was in
attendance. ... Cornelius Ingram twisted his ankle
but is not expected to miss any practices. ... Two
linebacker prospects Lerentee McCray (Dun-
nellon High) and Vincent Williams (Davenport
Ridge High) were also on hand. Both are rising
seniors and have been offered scholarships by the
Gators.


Freshman Hall keeps momentum going in first year
. .. _.i


The sprinter won three events last week


By DAVID CHAUNCEY
Alligator Writer

Freshman Jeremy Hall is mak-
ing the most of his first year.
He already snapped a 30-year-
old record by becoming the first
freshman to win the 60-meter dash
at the Southeastern Conference
Championships a few weeks ago,


and he -continued that momen-
tum last weekend in the Jim Click
Shoot-Out, winning three events.
Hall won the 100- and 200-meter
sprints and also ran on the winning
4x100 relay at the Shoot-Out and
was named SEC runner of the week
on Tuesday.
His team looks to continue the
momentum from the Shoot-Out


this weekend at the Florida State
Relays.
"It feels great," Hall said. "I am
accomplishing things I thought
would take two or three years."
But Hall and the coaching staff
know that starting strong means
little in the long run.
"(SEC runner of the week) is-
a great award, but that's not our


goal," UF coach Mike Holloway
said. "Our goals are to keep getting
better, and play our best at the end
of the year."'
Nevertheless,
S the Gators came
out of the gates
Track & Field strong this
outdoor season
after a disap-
pointing indoor finale.
"I was very pleased with the


weekend," Holloway said. "We
were very focused and we need
to build some momentum moving
forward."
Hall will not be competing this
weekend in preparation for the
Florida Relays on April 6 and 7, but
that doesn't mean he is taking the
week off.
"Every day is a track meet in
practice," Hall said. "They have no
problem working us hard."

Donovan's future of interest to basketball recruits

UF coach Billy Donovan talks with his team during the final minute of the Gators' 85-77 win against Oregon
at the Midwest Regional on Sunday in St. Louis.


Heckling won't keep Noah down


It's no secret to anyone who has been
paying attention the past few years that
Joakim Noah has a lot to say.
Even so, something he said this week
resonated just as much, if not more, than
any words that have ever come out of his
mouth.
In a nutshell, he said too much has been
expected of this team this season, that vic-
tories have become assumed rather than
praised.
"Last year people would talk to you for
the right reasons," Noah said this week.
"People were happy if we beat anybody."
SAnd in a crazy way, the same can be said
for him.
In three short weeks last spring, Noah
went from a name known only in college
basketball circles to the face of the NCAA
Tournament, Gator chomping 5 feet in front
of me on press row in Indianapolis after
capturing the school's first national title.

Title teams keep in touch

If you're near UF late Monday
night, you may see burning couches
and trees set ablaze.
You may see a student getting ar-
rested for slapping a police horse.
Or crazed fans climbing light posts
and traffic lights.
All have taken place before, on the
nights of UF's last two national cham-
pionships.
"I'd love to be a student here," said
UF football coach Urban Meyer, whose
team won the BCS Championship on
Jan. 8. "Can you imagine that? To get
another chance to run in the street and
act like a nut?"
But the celebrations aren't the only
link between UF's football and basket-
ball.teams.
As Meyer's champs have gotten in
the swing of spring practice, the cham-.
pionship basketball team has taken
back the attention of the Gator Nation.


*CBS SportsLine is reporting that UF is
pursuing heralded Connecticut women's
basketball coach Gerfo Auriemma as
they search for a replacement for Carolyn
Peck, who was fired Feb. 12.


UF is two wins away from bringing
another championship to Titletown,
and the football team has taken notice
just like the rest of campus.
As expected, UF players are expect-
ing another trophy.

"With the coaching staff and the
players that they have, this is almost
unfair," wide receiver Cornelius
Ingram said. "They have the perfect
team."
Ingram is one of the most hoops-
crazed football players because he
used to suit up in the O'Connell
Center.

The question is, respect from whom? "They're dismissive, condescending, and they're just like, 'Screw you, we're not going to do anything for you,"' said UF student Brie St. Lawrence about Gainesville towing companies. But in reference to those he tows, Mike Weber, the owner of Superior Towing, said: "They don't respect their neighbors, they don't respect other people's property, so they get towed." So where amid this towing controversy -now a significant problem in a college town short on parking -can the truth be differentiated from the catty comebacks? The answer may lie in an unlikely place: Apartment management. "The rules are different in just about every place." Mike Weber Superior Towing owner Weber said it is property management companies -not towing firms -that dictate which parking indiscretions are handled with a hook and a towrope and which are not. "The rules are different in just about every place," Weber said. In Royal Village apartments, if a vehicle is parked on a white line, it will not be towed, said Derrick Gilland, assistant manager of the complex. In Looking Glass apartments, that same vehicle would be towed, Weber said. St. Lawrence, who lives at Looking Glass, said she has been towed twice this school year for parking on a white line, or as Weber calls it, SEE TOWING, PAGE 8 Pollock-like artist paints on Plaza Fs -1,1-s -.I7 Jason Henry/ Alligator Local artist Adam Lansky, 23, works on a piece of modern art Wednesday afternoon on Turlington Plaza as onlookers marvel at the seeming confusion. N HE SAYS ART IS THERAPEUTIC FOR HIM. By KATIE PACKER Alligator Contributing Writer Splattering paint on a canvas is not just child's play. For Adam Lansky, it's therapy When he feels overwhelmed with stress and personal issues, Lansky, a 23-year-old local artist, resorts to painting. He is creating his abstract, emotion-filled art, called "action painting," on Turlington Plaza this week, to promote his modem art exhibit. As a small crowd formed around him while classes switched Wednesday at 12:35 p.m., Lansky threw paint from various heights onto canvases. When he flung the paint, the streams fused and split in the air before splattering on the canvas. The result resembled a swirled rainbow. "The creation of a piece is the work of art, not the finished piece itself," Lansky said. "I try to create a rhythm on paper." At 19, Lansky discovered how therapeutic throwing paint could be. He felt misplaced because of his parents' divorce On when he was 12, Campus which made him "skeptical about life." As he entered college at Florida State University, the skepticism stayed with him, and he was unable to find a major. Instead of throwing away his life, he started throwing paint. His action art is improvised, and he chooses colors based on how he is feeling when he creates the piece.

But awkward dates are now a distant memory for UF freshman Kellie Llona, who had breast augmentation surgery when she was 14 years old. Llona struggled for years with insecurities because of the drastic difference in the sizes of her breasts, she said. One was an A cup, and the other was a C. A UF professor's study, which appears in Plastic Surgical Nursing, was meant to emphasize breast surgery cases like Llona's. The study was conducted to show that breast surgery isn't just a procedure done for vanity reasons, said Cynthia FigueroaHaas, a UF clinical assistant professor. Since the surgery is becoming more popular, evaluating health professionals' atin 2006, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons Web site. Figueroa-Haas conducted her study at Barry University before coming to UF. She surveyed 84 women between the ages of 21 and 57 before and after their surgeries and found that most experienced increased selfesteem and sexuality. Llona said she's not an exception. "I feel a lot better about Public myself," she said. "If not for Health the surgery, I would feel selfconscious." Before, a wet bathing suit would reveal the pad. Now, Llona has the confidence to wear clothes she couldn't before. Although Llona said she first realized in fifth grade that one breast was larger than the other, middle school was when the tears came. By eighth grade, Liona began to doubt she'd ever fit in. She felt she couldn't do things that her classmates took for granted, like wearing low-cut shirts or dating. "I couldn't imagine ever having a boyfriend," said Llona, who now has just ended a two-year relationship. that." Later in the school year, Llona's mother decided to take her to a plastic surgeon. Her insurance company covered the costs of the surgery because she was diagnosed with Poland syndrome, the underdevelopment of the chest muscle on one side of the body. With the implants, both of her breasts are full C cups, she said. Figueroa-Haas said her research was conducted to raise more awareness, especially for health care providers, of the psychological issues related to breast surgery. She said she hopes her study leads to more research on cosmetic surgery and self-esteem. But though the surgery can boost confidence, it's not a cure-all, she said. "If you have psychological issues, implants won't help that," she said. Although Llona said she was in pain and still swollen after a week of recovery, she felt better about herself almost immediately. "Before the surgery, I thought people should be happy with what they have," Llona said. "But if it's going to make you happy, go for it."

THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Vigil raises rape awareness E COORDINATORS WANT TO MAKE IT AN ANNUAL EVENT AT UF By A.J. DAVIDSON Alligator Contributing Writer Students gathered Wednesday night on the Plaza of the Americas for "Take Back the Night," a national campaign aimed at fighting and raising awareness about sexual violence. "The purpose of 'Take Back the Night' is to generate awareness about sexual assault and rape, to break the silence surrounding this issue, and to basically work toward a community where rape is not tolerated and rape doesn't happen," said Jennifer Kent, a law student at UF and the event's main coordinator. The eventbegan at 7 p.m. with a candlelight vigil honoring victims of sexual violence. Afterward students, led by a police escort, marched to the Reitz Union, where survivors shared their stories and participants spoke about sexual violence. "The speak-out gives people a voice and gives them an opportunity to feel empowered, take back their power and raise awareness about sexual violence," said Tanja van der Veen, a victim's advocate with the Univesity Police Department. "It's putting a face on the issue." The event played host to a diverse crowd of more than 50 students that included men, women, survivors and those who simply wanted to aid. "I am taking back the night because I'm a women's studies student," said Mallory Szymanski, a UF graduate student. "I find it important to be teaching about these issues in the classroom and to be putting them into practice outside of the classroom." Kent and her colleagues began planning the event in September in an attempt to establish "Take Back the Night" at UF The campaign is already prevalent on many college campuses. "It's not something that's really On had an institutional history at UF," CIMPIS Kent said. "We want to see 'Take Back the Night'become an institution at the University of Florida because it's more than just an event -it's a campaign, really, something to work toward ending rape at the University of Florida and in Gainesville." Although the event saw a modest number of students, coordinators were pleased with the turnout and hope to increase numbers with future "Take Back the Night" events. "I thought it was amazing -the fact that the speak-out was able to provide a safe space for survivors of sexual assault to come forward. For some of them to get the help that they need, that to me was worth a thousand of these," Kent said. "I think this is a really strong beginning. It's something that is the start of a movement." Black joked about politics B LACK, from page 1 ous," Cedros said. "He paces around the stage like he's so angry, and he has really funny facial expressions." Cedros said his favorite part was when Black talked about young conservatives. Black said he was shocked -that college students could be conservative, because you're supposed to become more conservative as you get older. "What are you going to be then?" Black asked the audience. "Nazis?" To end the show, Black read the audience two news stories to cheer them up after his "depressing performance." They were about a "circus dwarf" who was eaten by a hippopotamus and a freak accident involving a couple having oral sex while cooking breakfast. "I believe that that should be a Bible story," Black said of the accident story. He concluded the night with an encouraging message for his young audience: He advised them to ignore the fear of the post-Sept. 11 world and enjoy life. "Even the Jews love Santa. Lewis Black comedian/Accent speaker "This is your time," he said. "Do anything you want with your life." Black received a standing ovation from the crowd. The event was put on by Accent UF's student-run speakers bureau -and Jewish Awareness Month, a Student Governmentsponsored organization.

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2007 Editorial Welcome back We hope Chomp the Vote sticks around this time Chomp the Vote has finally returned. Well, almost. After almost a year of inactivity, Chomp is accepting applications for a new director. Once it has a new one, itbetter hit the ground running. It's got to make up for a lot of lost time. Of course, the organization never should have gone away in the first place. The Student Government-run organization faltered under Director Hannah Hillman, who fell off the radar when she should have been working to register new voters. While Chomp was MIA, a lot happened. It missed statewide elections, in which we elected our new governor and a U.S. senator, and then city elections, in which we voted for our mayor and a city/commissioner. A pretty big deal, and something Chomp should not have let pass it by But it's time for a fresh start. So what do we want to see from the new and improved organization? Obviously, its priority should be registering new voters. But it doesn't make sense to table year-round. We're procrastinators, and we're damn proud of it. Instead, Chomp should bombard us a few weeks before registration deadlines. High visibility and a huge annoyance factor -will be more effective than one lonely person sitting on Turlington Plaza with a stack of forms. Students who are already registered to vote should yegister in Alachua County. This is, after all, where we spend at least two-thirds of the year. Local politics affect us more than what's going on back home. If we want a student-friendly City Commission, we need to vote for it. And Chomp needs to get people to care. How can it do that? It's a hard question to answer, but working with Accent to bring in political speakers and candidates for office is one way. It's also important to bring in current politicians -state senators, local representatives and UF alumni who are currently serving office. If Chomp shows students exactly what these elected officials do for us, students will participate more actively in the system. This isnt about partisan politics, and it's not about Democrats or Republicans. This is about getting students' voices -our voices -heard. Beating a dead horse et's just drop it already. After the Faculty Senate denied former Gov. Jeb Bush an honorary degree last week, the Alumni Association turned around and slapped the Senate in the face by grantinghimhonorary alumnus status. And Tuesday, the Student Senate passed a resolution honoring him. All this political back-andforth makes us dizzy. The degree is only a symbolic gesture, and this whole ordeal has been blown out of proportion. UF President Benie Machen is pissed because he's trying to schmooze a Republican-controlled Legislature into passing his "Academic Enhancement Program." That's all well and good, but an honorary degree -the denial or approval should have no influence over the way politicians vote. This is grade-school logic: Apples and oranges are not the same, and one action should not affect another. The fact remains that the Faculty Senate felt Bush was not deserving of an honorary degree -and it has every right to think that. The backpedaling of Bernie, the Alumni Association and the Student Senatecan only bandage this wound. But underneath the gauze, the flesh is still cut. At this point, just let it heal. 0the independent florida alligator Jessica Riffel Tom Durrenberger EDITOR Leigh Shapiro Kat Laskowski Jonathan Tietz MANAGING EDITOR EDITORIAL BOARD Jessica Holland OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

OT447yxy~~ ~j~t4 <"7< ~ 4< "'-'V V "er/V. / C Column Tuition fee disguises the real problem henI first examined the "Academic Enhancement Program" a semester ago, I supported it. Why not charge incoming students $1,000 more each year to hire more faculty and advisers? More than 70 percent of students receive some form of the Bright Futures scholarship already, and, after all, higher education comes at a price. But I've changed my mind. Universities like UF are essential. Great education at an affordable price -what's so bad about that? Not every university, even Florida's flagship, needs to function like a private one. In a society where a college education is practically a prerequisite for a making a decent living, increasing the cost of education is not the answer. UF President Bernie Machen is asking the wrong questions. He asks, "How do I make this university a top-10 public university?" But instead, he should ask, "What is the best possible way to help students afford education?" Machen has also been peculiarly vague about which departments will benefit from the new hires. This university has a strong proclivity toward supporting big-name programs, such as the sciences and engineering -where the research money is -while ignoring the less-marketable programs like the arts and humanities. And according to an article in The Gainesville Sun, Machen made it quite clear that the university's future growth would be in graduate programs. But the recently conducted report by the Pappas Consulting Group Inc. recommended that all public Florida universities focus solely on undergraduate and not graduate programs. So where will the new faculty hires go? Toward graduate or undergraduate programs? True, the 100 new advisers are intended for undergraduates. But why do we need more advisers? Part of earning a college degree should be self-sufficiency. If you can't navigate your way to a degree -with the occasional special visit to an adviser -you probably don't deserve one. Obviously, our university needs some improvements, and charging $1,000 more per student each year seems reasonable -but it's not that simple. University of Central Florida's Todd Portnowitz president, John Hitt, has alletters@alligator.org ready admitted that if it passes, the "Academic Enhancement Program" would start a trend of statewide charges. Hitt said UCF and other Florida universities withheld from lobbying for their own tuition hikes in order to boost the chances of UF's passing -which would give those other schools the green light for tuition increases. Hopefully, Gov. Charlie Crist will hold to his "no new tuition" claim and refuse to support the program. Let Crist's will be done. Not because the reasons for the tuition hike aren't logical, but because as a university -and as a state -we're not trying hard enough or looking in the right places for money to put toward education. We're caving. Money and education have always conflicted. The solution is a matter of priority. As long as the state continues to underfund education, the universities will be forced to look elsewhere. This results in a standstill for UR The state refuses to properly fund education, while at the same time it denies its universities the tuition hikes they need. It's a lose-lose situation. The "Academic Enhancement Program" won't solve this problem. It merely shifts the burden to the wrong wallets, the wallets of the middleand lower-class families -not the bulging, George Constanza-sized wallet of the state government.

THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 7 UF's diversity hiring policies are racist I have a few questions about the diversity problems that plague Tigert Hall and the UF faculty. What is UF's diversity goal? Is it to be an institution where faculty and students are judged not by their race, but by the content of their character? If so, how could anyone just look at the races of faculty members and tell that there are diversity problems? UF President Bernie Machen said, "The numbers sort of speak for themselves"? I say Machen is sort of racist. One could argue that the numbers are smoke to a racist fire that is ablaze. When 54 out of 65 top administrators are white, something must be going on. Look at the U.S. Census breakdown of the U.S. population by race. Will the numbers tell of a diverse university when the percentage of each race in the faculty perfectly corresponds to the percentage of each race in the nation's population? I might be confusing diversity and racism, but if achieving the former requires a whole lot of the latter, I'd prefer to be ignorant to the difference between the two. Gerald Liles 3LS SG should not fund partisan messages On Page 8 of Tuesday's gator, an advertisement appeared listing the signers of a petition that supports Israel. The group that paid for it is not identified. Instead it says, "Paid for by Student Government." While I do not disagree with the petition -I signed it and I am listed in the ad -students should ask their senators'to investigate the possible misuse of SG money I may support Israel, but I do not support the use of SG funds in an obviously partisan political message. William Foster 3LS Guest column Pike wrongly condemned by UF, Alligator, Greek community pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity's punishment was not; as the Oinions pages of the Alligator clamor to say, "too light." If anything, it was completely out of line, as is all of the dancing on our mass grave. I feel that Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski's extension of the initial punishment by two years solely for our "failure to accept responsibility for or to acknowledge the seriousness of (our) conduct" is reprehensible. Angered by the lack of evidence in the case, as well as the evidence in our favor -namely, that no girls were drugged or raped, and that the school had previously made us get rid of our security team -Zdziarski doubled the suspension. Make no mistake: We understand the seriousness of the charges, but I put no credence in them because of their weak support. Fraternities have done truly disturbing things in the past and gotten off with lighter punishments. We're being nailed to the wall because an ill-fitting reputation precedes us and because we fought for our fraternity instead of groveling at the feet of UF's administration. Ken After the Schwencke state dropped Speaking Out all charges and the UF GreekJudicial Board cleared us of hazing, UF still. went full force with all it had: accusations of underage drinking on game day and insubstantial charges about actions committed with disregard to possible harm. People look at our fraternity's tenuous history and happily condemn us without hearing our side of the story. If past sanctions against us are a definitive proof of guilt in this case, then a judicial hearing for repeat offenders must seem like a waste of time in their narrow points of view. Who cares about pesky things like evidence and facts, as long as we've been punished a few times? If you're in a fraternity and somebody levels accusations against you, it seems that you're guilty until proven innocent. I disapprove not only of everyone in the Greek conunity who has condemned us unfairly, but also of the Alligator, which should be above kicking a group of students when they're down. I guess the GERM DOOME TICKETS AALABLE CALL TODAY 80078OLD-OUT 1 Gator Nation only includes those students without letters. When your houses eventually come under fire for unsubstantiated allegations, we'll be past saying we told you so. All the good that your fraternity has done and could potentially do will be wiped out by a single headline, just as ours was. As far as anyone can tell, the only good we've done this semester is take up space in the Alligator to deflect the long list of rules that other houses have broken iis year.

8, ALLIGATOR N THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2007 Rules vary among apartment complexes TOWING, from page 1 double parking. She said she is being punished for something unavoidable. The parking spots are too small, she said, which causes some drivers to park poorly, forcing others to park over the line. On average, spots in the Looking Glass lot are about six-and-a-half feet wide. Weber, because of his contract with Looking Glass, said he doesn't have a choice but to tow a car that is double parked. But, he said, double parking is the driver's fault, anyway "Alot of it just comes down to plain laziness," he said. "If full-size trucks and full-size Hummers can fit in that spot, then you can certainly park in that spot." He said 90 percent of the vehicles he tows are smallto mid-sized cars. St. Lawrence drives a Honda Civic. Weber said he does students a favor because he only tows them if their vehicle's tires are over the white line, not if they are just touching it. But St. Lawrence produced a photograph -which she said was taken by Superior Towing before her car was towed from Looking Glass -that showed her car touching, but not extending over the line. She knows that towing is necessary but said she thinks she is being taken advantage of. "They stop actually doing their job when they do stuff like this," she said. Samantha Reilly, a UF sophomore, also said she feels victimized. "Sometimes I'd just rather pay the ftow company than see $40 go in that, asshole's pocket." Samantha Reilly UF sophomore When she was visiting a friend in fall 2005, the first semester she lived in Gainesville, Reilly said her car was towed at Royal Village, which had a contract with Elite Towing. She said she hadn't even left the lot when the tow truck driver approached her car. He agreed to return her car, she said, but only if she paid him $40 in cash on the spot. She said it wasn't the only time that happened to her. "Sometimes I'd just rather pay the f--tow company than see $40 go in that asshole's pocket," she said. Elite Towing could not be reached for comment. While Weber insists Superior Towing does not engage in such practices, he said he does not have much sympathy for those who park where they don't belong. "Parking is a privilege. It's not a right," he said. "People forget that they're on someone else's property." And every property defines these privileges differently. In College Park Apartments, every tenant is given a decal for a specific spot, said Aubrey Zaffke, the complex's marketing director. If cars are parked without the appropriate decal, they are towed, she said. But if they are just parked badly, the tenants are called and asked to fix their vehicles, she said. For other communities, that isn't the case. Kensington North, located on Southwest 20th Avenue, does not have a towing policy, said resident Chris Nakhla. In the two-and-a-half years he has lived there, Nakhla said he has never seen a tow truck in his complex. 1102TfOOP, 6M\Acfln rON'T RINE & DRIVE H 7'. 0 6 1 HEALTH INSURANCE "Students need Health Insurance.

-& --95-year-old Roxie r CS ~-~Taylor creates guWA 11 Charles Roop/Alligator Roxie Taylor, 95, threads a needle in her Gainesville home Wednesday afternoon. Taylor makes quilts for a living. KATE KENNEDY V AVENUE WRITER You'll miss it if you'r not careful. A small wooden sign at the mouth of a dirt driveway in Gainesville reads, "Quilts for Sale." On the door of the one-story house is a handwritten note to visitors instructing them to knock loudly and be patient because it might take a little while for someone to answer the door. Inside, the corner of the living room holds a small stack of quilts, all made with care. Roxie Taylor, often known as simply Granny, learned how to quilt from her mother, and she sells her creations from her home, for $45 apiece. She doesn't make much of a profit, but that doesn't matter to her. "1 love to do it," she said. While most of Roxie's quilts have gone to members of her vast extended family, the sign' by the road shepherds strangers in as well. "They go by and see the sign every day, and they just decide to stop," said Patricia Harrington, Roxie's 70-year-old daughter. Any extra income helps, and"Roxie is no stranger to making ends meet. Vmze4u/as Aard hazl hPe,, &7 the Hoover days," she said. Roxie turns 95 on Sunday. She is one of eight children and has lived in the Gainesville area all her life. Her father was a sharecropper in the nearby town of Fairbanks, and Roxie remembers riding the 7 miles into Gainesville on a horse-drawnwagon to sell cucumbers and green beans. Her face softens into a smile as she recalls the horseshoes chopping on brick when trotting down what is now University Avenue. Roxie was 6 years old when World War I broke out in Europe. Her father remained home due to a heart murmur. Wartime took a toll on the domestic economy, and farmers suffered a big bit. "We never thought we were poor," she said. "But we were.", Roxie's mother died when Roxie was just a toddler. All eight children and their father were packed into a two-bedroom house. Schoolafor Roxie as a. one-room building about a mile and a quarter down'the roa d. Six months out of the year, she and her sib-, lings would walk to the schoolhouse wearing homemade dresses and swinging their lunch, pails. Children of farmers could only attend school for half of the year because they had to getback to work in the fields. "I've worked hard all my life, and farm life is not fum," she said. "But we never went hungry or without clothes or a place to stay." 9oaJ'hs Aadk' 9z aY sc/d en af/e age of 16 because the $15 a month plus the cost of textbooks was too much for the family. She then moved in with her aunt, who owned a boarding house. There, Roxie cooked three meals a day for 14 men. "Breakfast at'7, lunch at12, dinner at 5," she said. What she missed in formal education she made'ap forin practicalskills. She can tellyou the step-by-step instructions of how to salt a hog, cook swamp cabbage and gut a fish. Roxie was 17 years old when the Great Depression hit in 1929. It was the first time Roxie remembers ever having trouble getting' food on the table. She paid for necessities in credit or scrip and wasted nothing. Back in "the Hoover days," life was hard and work was scarce. For $5 a day, Roxie and her three sisters toiled under the merciless Plorida sun clearing land for agricultural use. One day on the job, a young man named James Taylor happened upon the sisters. "was inmy overalls with tar onmy bands, splitting' wood," she said. In April of 1932, James and 20-year-old Roxie were married. Roxie was soon the other of four girls. She also raised her youngest sister, Lois, after their father died. conservation measures. Roxie always made sure to lock the food box even when the rest of the house went unlocked. Once the war was over and America had recovered from its hard times, the Taylor family moved to Gainesville. The children gradually left home. In 1980, Roxie's husband died. in 1997 she moved in with one of her daughters, Patricia. They take care of each other, making sure to laugh a little.

Of Montreal plays tonight DAVID LOW 0 AVENUE WRITER Remedy raps 'P.E.A.C.E.' Georgie Fruit is a 300-pound, black she-male. She's in her mid-50s and has seen it all: She writes funk songs for Of Montreal and will be performing with the band at Abbey Road tonight. But Fruit lives only in the mind of the wiry Kevin Barnes, singer and guitarist of the Athens, Ga., band. Her neighbors, to name a few, include the eccentric Claude Robert and the thoughtful, mellow Lisp Crispy. Alter egos are powerful tools in songwriting, said Bryan Poole, a guitarist and band member since Of Montreal's inception. "Sometimes you start to repeat yourself," Poole said. "If you can place yourself as a different persona, it allows if you c you to be creative in "o as a di a different way. You allows you to be aculybecome thtferent way. You actually beoethat that diffe different being." Poole has experiguitarist for Of ence with alter egos himself, having played as Bryan Helium with the band Elf Power and gone as The Late B.P. Helium on his solo efforts. He said Barnes' ability to use different personas in making Of Montreal's latest album helped him express the very personal content dealt with on the record. The band's latest album, "Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?" was written by Barnes in the midst of the time when he was going through a separation with his wife. The marriage was later reconciled. Because the experience was so emotional, Barnes had trouble letting the other band members get involved in the album, Poole said. But totalitarianism over album content isn't anything new for Of Montreal. Throughout the band's existence, it has gone back and forth between band collaboration And Barnes' solo work. Barnes recorded most of "Hissing Fauna" himself while living in Norway, Poole said. Even though Barnes had shown the other band members his initial ideas for songs, the end results in a re M sometimes surprised them. "When I hear that album as it's released now, sometimes I turn my head and I'll be like, 'What? What the hell was that? I don't remember that. Where the hell did that come from?"' Poole said. "It may be a little bit weird for us as a band to not have that participation in it He said he hopes that the next album will be more of a collective effort. But performing live is a different matter entirely. The band interacts on stage in a bizarre display that is intended to "transport you to a weird place," Poole said. Fashion is a large part of this vision, he said. The band place yourself members take their rent persona, it cues from the eccenreative in a diftres greate like ctually become tic greats like Sly & nt being. the Family Stone, Sun Bryan Poole Ra and David Bowie. Bontreal Po "We wanted to 77 make it a theatrical thing," he said. "There are so many bands that get up there and play in an indie rock T-shirt or something like that, and there's nothing really wrong with that, per se, but we want it to be a spectacle to kind of take you out of just seeing a normal show so you're like,'Wow, what the hell is going on?"' Many fans were thinking exactly that when Of Montreal played a show in Las Vegas last month in which Kevin Barnes came onstage completely naked, save a cummerbund, which covered nothing. "Kevin just wanted to see if he had the balls to do it," Poole said. "No one was really upset by it. If you were at that show that night, you would probably be more upset about the black, gay porn we had playing in the background than Kevin actually getting naked." It may not be the last show that Barnes struts his stuff, but the band will keep it toned down at the all-ages shows, he said. "Sometimes it's better when the clothes are on," Poole said. "Leaves a little bit to the imagination." SHEM FLEENOR 0 AVENUE WRITER Just after 4 p.m. in Midtown Manhattan on March 22, Ross Filler -better known to hip-hop aficionados and indie-kids as "Remedy" -exhales a hazy, aromatic plume of smoke. Misty rays of sunlight cascade between ash-gray skyscrapers. Bundled-up bicyclists and cheddar-yellow taxis zoom by like flashes of lightning. "You've got to take a right here," said Filler to his friend Jamie, the driver. Filler gets calm and focused as the jet-black Dodge Charger whips around the corner towards the Hammerstein Ballroom, where he'll perform his classic anthem "Never Again" while marching boxer Dmitry Salita to the ring. [Rem Salita is inspired by the a rap legendary track, which meta helped propel the WuJosh We Tang Killa Bee compilasoun tion album, "The Swarm, Vol. 1," featuring every member of the Wu-Tang Clan, to sell more than a million copies worldwide. The track was inspired by Filler's family members in Poland, who were killed during the Holocaust. "Mankind has been recording history for 5,000 years," Filler said. "The Holocaust happened 60-something years ago. I couldn't believe it. I still can't. The whole world sat back and watched as millions were persecuted and killed. That's what makes 'Never Again' so important, so timeless." In 1998, after Filler spent years unearthing his roots, RZA, the founder of Wu-Tang Clan, approached him to add a track to "The Swann." The album proved to be the perfect rocket to blast "Never Again" into orbit. The song was written and refined during two simmering, soul-searching months. Filler's mental image of his Uncle Boris being shof in the back and of his family being herded onto cattle trains and provided inspiration for the track. "The beat was just so deep," he said. "It just kind of came together. I cried a bunch of times making that." His "search for self-knowledge" took him to Israel, a country that, he said, for e th d Jews, feels like a warm hug on a cold day from a loved one you thought you'd never see again. "There's good spirits flying around in Israel," he said. "It's beautiful. I lived there 90 days and saw the sunrise 73 times." In 2004, he produced "New York to Israel," a compilation featuring some of Israel's sharpest producers and lyricists, including rapper Subliminal. But his trip to Israel was as much spiritual odyssey as it was business venture. His odyssey brings him to UF tonight. He plans to perform some classics and new tracks such as "Israel," an evolutionary account of Jewish history that's as much a doctoral thesis as it is hip-hop. The sunset performance is hosted by Hillel and takes place dy is] not just at the Reitz Union er. He's a poet Amphitheatre at 8 p.m. lysicist. Josh Wetherington, erington 26, of Boca Raton, was engineer sound engineer at Remedy's show March 20 at Florida Atlantic University. "Don't just expect a hip-hop show, expect a religious experience," Wetherington said. "He's not just.a rapper. He's a poet metaphysicist." Filler's performance tonight is meant to promote the RemedyIsraelProgram and spark an enhanced concept of Jewish selfidentity through hip-hop. "But it's not just for Jews," he said. "Hip-hop belongs to all of humanity." Filler has been known to push "P.E.A.C.E." on stage. The acronym stands for Positive Education Always Corrects Errors. He is confident that education is a giant leap toward ending the hatred festering between Muslims, Jews and Christians. Filler's philosophical stamp is evident in all his artistic and economic ventures, including his record label, Code Red, which produced fellow Wu family member Cappadonna's latest album, "The Struggle." "The only thing that separates man from beast is our brains," he said. "Yeah, some people only respect violence -man's always just one step away from doing some crazy shit. But in the end, you've got to keep the faith. You know?"

When I came to at 5 that morning, I back into our wonders for a girl's libido. All the "what-ifs" left my mind awoke in a nanic fearing I had blown old groove and GUEST COLUMNIST After watching the guy in my life move to California in January, I knew I had two excruciatingly abstinent months ahead of me. I bided iny time by focusing my energy on classes and anticipating Spring Break, when I would finally see my boyfriend. While I missed his charm and amazing sense of humor, I couldn't get sex off my brain. As the week neared, my enthusiasm underwent a brutal reality check. What if I was out of practice? What if things between us had changed? smoggier than Los Angeles as I arrived there that Saturday. I felt self-conscious as I entered the land of the glamorous and its sea of bronzed beauties. With our initial reunion at the airport, I decided it was too late to hold anything back. I hadn't bought a $300 plane ticket to have my inhibitions yield a week of passionless sex. I began thinking like a seductress and decided all factors aside, I was going to rock his world that very night, and nothing could stop me. Nothing except the tequila that my opportunity to start the week off right. I frantically focused on the figure asleep on the couch across from me, and realizing who it was, I went to wake him without hesitation. In a haze of lingering drunkenness and delayed gratification, we began kissing everywhere, ravenously, like skin was our only source of oxygen. We quickly shed our clothes. Everything was as hot -if not hotter than before -and the level of pleasure I experienced was like nothing I could remember. the sex seemed to only get better with each night. I was like Sam I Am. I would have been willing to do it in a house or a tree, on a boat or on a train. As the. week progressed and my inevitable departure neared, the sex became more sensual, lasting longer and reaching greater degrees of intimacy. I awoke the last day feeling truly sexhausted, knowing that I was about to enter another dry season. But I could now look forward to our next reunion and the challenge of topping the best sex of my life. 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

Some are born with it; others spend their entire lives looking for it. But for those who are lucky enough to find their swing, it can be just as easily forgotten -and in this sport it may never come back. As the only senior on the UF's men's golf team, Jessie Mudd is still looking. Mudd doesn't see much playing time these days, but there was a time when his was the next big thing, the next great Gators golfer. Mudd remembers these days, and recounts a story that is not a typical fall from grace, rather a chance lost but not forgotten. Mudd may soon find what he's looking for, or he may not -it's hard to say. in my game The Early Years Je Mudd began playing at the age of 3. His father put a club in his hand hoping he would follow in the footsteps of his son's two uncles -both PGA Tour professionals. Mudd picked up the game quickly. "Ever since I could remember, I had a set of golf dubs around," he said. "I always enjoyed playing." Mudd's high school days are full of accolades. He led St. Xavier High School in Louisville, Ky., to three state championships in 1998-99,2001-02 and 2002-03. Along the way, he was named Kentucky's Mr. Golf twice and headed into his senior year ranked as the No.1 high school player in the country by Golfweek. The expectations were high for Mudd as he began to look ahead. With two relatives connected to UF coach Buddy Alexander, the decision was an easy one. "Warm weather," Mudd said smiling. "How could you go wrong?" The College Life In his first year at UF, Mudd played on one of the greatest teams in school history. In 2003-04, the team finished in the top five in all 11 of its matches, including seven first-place finishes. However, the season would come to a disappointing end when the Gators finished sixth in the NCAA Championships. Playing alongside Gators legend Camilo Villegas, Mudd was the hot-shot freshman. He was a PING honorable mention All-American, named Co-Southeastem Conference Freshman of the Year and was a second-team All-SEC selection. Mudd also posted the fourth-best scoring average by a freshman in school history (72.69). It was here that he made what he calls the biggest mistake of his life. "I didn't play even once over the summer," he said with his eyes turned downward. "I came back pretty rusty." Things got worse for Mudd. Season-ending ankle surgery forced him to redshirt the 2004-05 season, missing even more time. "When you take that much time off it begins to take a toll on you," he said. "Mentally you begin to think you're going to be rusty and when you are, a few bad scores here and there really hurt your confidence." When Mudd returned he said his confidence was gone. .But I just can't seem "I lost the belief that I could hit a good g a -'

This year, he had a cheerleader thrust her pompoms in his face and had Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings slap his hand away from a ball, although the incident was downplayed. Now, I won't compare myself to someone of Noah's stature, but I was heckled after screwing up a routine play in a high school volleyball playoff game, and it got to me for a brief moment. But I can't imagine being subjected to that type of harassment through an entire 40-minute basketball game. He brings some of the crap on himself by pounding his chest and screaming a lot, but for some reason, when he does it, it doesn't strike me as showing up the opposition or being cocky like I typically think of those. things. And despite all the hype, distractions and expectations, Noah was still named a second-team All-American this week. He still plays great defense and runs the floor well. His rebounding is up and he's still the emotional heart and soul of a team that has won 66 games (an absurd number, by the way) the past two seasons. And don't look now, but he's declared that the Gator Boys are hot once again. This is his time, and with everything he's had thrown in his direction throughout this season, I wouldn't be the one trying to put out the flames. DT challenges hoops team FOOT, from page 24 He played 19 games for Billy Donovan as a freshman before turning solely to football. While in high school, Ingram played against Chris Richard, Taurean Green and Corey Brewer in AAU games. Ingram is still close with Richard and talks to him every other day and after games. "I talk to the guys all the time," Ingram said. "I basically tell them how good the team looks, and all the football guys are rooting for them." Richard and center Marreese Speights spent their day off at football practice on Monday and spoke with Ingram afterwards. But it wasn't an isolated incident. Players on both teams joke around together, shooting the breeze and playing video games. "I'm real good friends with a lot of them, Chris Richard, Joakim (Noah), all of those guys," defensive tackle Clint McMillan said. "There's a really good relationship with both of the teams." There's such a strong bond that McMillan has a challenge for the hoops squad. He'd like to set up a pickup game once the hoops team returns from Atlanta. "It's tough to find a time, but it could definitely be arranged," McMillan said. "We've got a lof of guys on the team that play ball, but Football that's all the basketball team does. We would probably lose by 50, but we'll play hard and play defense and rebound." Meyer brought Donovan, Noah, Richard and Al Horford before last season to speak to his team about what it takes to win a title. Meyer and Donovan are good friends and neighbors. On Wednesday, Meyer was asked to divulge his inside information on the Donovan rumors. "I don't know," he said. Guess the two teams aren't close enough.

THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2007 N ALLIGATOR, 23 Meyer names Moore No. 1 RB Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff UF running back Kestahn Moore takes a carry during the Gators' practice on Wednesday at the UF practice fields. BRANDON JAMES IS SECOND ON THE DEPTH CHART. By MIKE MCCALL Alligator Writer With the loss of starting running back DeShawn Wynn, the UF football team is looking for a replacement for last year's leading rusher. UF coach Urban Meyer said the Gators have found their answer in junior Kestahn Moore. "K-Mo is really doing well, he's our starting tailback," Meyer said. "Brandon James is No. 2, and then (Chevon Walker) and Mon (Williams)." In addition to strong spring practices, Moore has improved as a leader as well. "He's taken on the leadership role, and he's doing everything right -with the way he's practicing and his whole demeanor," UF running backs coach Stan Drayton said. "The way he's leading that group right now is really impressing me. I'm proud of him." All four backs looked strong in Wednesday's practice, but Walker distinguished himself with several big runs. "He came out of a couple of piles and showed a little speed like he has," Meyer said. James has performed well in the backfield but will remain on special teams. The Gators worked on kickoff returns for the first time this spring, with James and Jarred Fayson getting most of the work. Despite having just one upperclassman at running back, Drayton is confident his young group will improve and make an impact. "These guys are determined to get better," he said. "Today we came out and ran the ball pretty hard. I see a lot of great effort coming out of this backfield right now." RICKERSON BACK: Redshirt freshman cornerback Jacques Rickerson participated in his second practice since recovering from knee surgery last 'season. "I' m just getting my wind back," he said. "I was a little winded the first couple days, but now I'm getting back into a groove and everything" Rickerson was expected to contribute fast season, but attitude problems and the knee injury kept him off the field. "I was a little winded the first couple days, but now I'm getting back into a groove and everything." Jacques Rickerson UF cornerback With a clean slate, he is determined to crack the starting lineup this year. "I feel like the pressure is all on me," he said. "(The coaches) were looking forward to me (participating) last year but I kind of let them down. This year I'm trying to put everything I have into it so I don't let them down again. I'm really excited now to play in the Swamp. It's going to be crazy." ETC: Running back signee Chris Rainey was in attendance. .Cornelius Ingram twisted his ankle but is not expected to miss any practices. .Two linebacker prospects -Lerentee McCray (Dunnellon High) and Vincent Williams (Davenport Ridge High) -were also on hand. Both are rising seniors and have been offered scholarships by the Gators. Freshman Hall keeps momentum going in first year The sprinter won three events last week By DAVID CHAUNCEY Alligator Writer Freshman Jeremy Hall is making the most of his first year. He already snapped a 30-yearold record by becoming the first freshman to win the 60-meter dash at the Southeastern Conference Championships a few weeks ago, and he -continued that momentum last weekend in the Jim Click Shoot-Out, winning three events. Hall won the 100and 200-meter sprints and also ran on the winning 4x100 relay at the Shoot-Out and was named SEC runner of the week on Tuesday. His team looks to continue the momentum from the Shoot-Out this weekend at the Florida State Relays. "It feels great," Hall said. "I am accomplishing things I thought would take two or three years." But Hall and the coaching staff know that starting strong means little in the long run. "(SEC runner of the week) isa great award, but that's not our goal," UF coach Mike Holloway said. "Our goals are to keep getting better, and play our best at the end of the year."Nevertheless, the Gators came out of the gates Track & Field strong this outdoor season after a disappointing indoor finale. "I was very pleased with the weekend," Holloway said. "We were very focused and we need to build some momentum moving forward." Hall will not be competing this weekend in preparation for the Florida Relays on April 6 and 7, but that doesn't mean he is taking the week off. "Every day is a track meet in practice," Hall said. "They have no problem working us hard." 01'0 4 0 .0 0 90 9 4 tO ,% "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" b 9 1''

Sports THURSDAY, MARCH 29,2007 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org c~ t t~ A "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" UF coach Billy Donovan talks with his team during the final minute of the Gators' 85-77 win against Oregon at the Midwest Regional on Sunday in St. Louis. Heckling won t keep Noah down It's no secret to anyone who has been paying attention the past few years that Joakim Noah has a lot to say. Even so, something he said this week resonated just as much, if not more, than any words that have ever come out of his mouth. In a nutshell, he said too much has been expected of this team this season, that victories have become assumed rather than praised. "Last year people would talk to you for the right reasons," Noah said this week. "People were happy if we beat anybody." And in a crazy way, the same can be said for him. In three short weeks last spring,'Noah went from a name known only in college basketball circles to the face of the NCAA Tournament, Gator chomping 5 feet in front of me on press row in Indianapolis after capturing the school's first national title. Faced with that burden, Noah has been viewed through a microscope so big it would burn through a colony of ants. UF coach Billy Donovan has said there's no way Noah could live up to the expectations, but that hasn't stopped anyone from breaking down his game piece-by-piece. What most people fail to realize, however, is that he'll never put up those gaudy numbers all the time simply because of Dan Treat the type of team the Dan in Motion Gators are. dtreat@alligater.org And although the players say former UF guard Matt Walsh got it worse, I promise you that Noah has put up with more heckling from opposing fans than any player ever to slip on an orange and blue uniform.

You may see a student getting arrested for slapping a police horse. -Or crazed fans climbing light posts and traffic lights. All have taken place before, on the nights of UF's last two national championships. "I'd love to be a student here," said UF football coach Urban Meyer, whose team won the BCS Championship on Jan. 8. "Can you imagine that? To get another chance to run in the street and act like a nut?" But the celebrations aren't the only link between UF's football and basketballteams. As Meyer's champs have gotten in the swing of spring practice, the championship basketball team has taken back the attention of the Gator Nation. UF is two wins away from bringing another championship to Titletown, and the football team has taken notice just like the rest of campus. As expected, UF players are expecting another trophy. "I'd love to be a student here. Can you imagine that? To get another chance to run in the street and act like a nut?" Urban Meyer UF football coach "With the coaching staff and the players that they have, this is almost unfair," wide receiver Cornelius Ingram said. "They have the perfect team."
