More to Krishnas than vegetarian


unch


Group's local ties date back to 1970


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Hundreds of students find their
way to the Plaza of the Americas
every weekday to eat a $4 veg-
etarian meal served by the Hare


Krishnas.
Some are interested enough to
pick up a book off the self-service
rack. A few attend classes on yoga
or meditation at the Hare Krishna
House on Northwest 14th Street.
But to casual diners, the his-
tory and philosophy of the Hare


Krishnas who serve them lunch
remains a mystery.
Building Foundations
The first Krishna follower came
to Gainesville in the fall of 1970,
said Parama Lieberman, a Krishna
who has documented the group's
history. The Krishna movement


had only just come to the United
States from India in 1966.
That follower, named
Gargamuni, chanted on the Plaza
each day, sharing
Local food and information
News with anyone who
was curious.
Eventually, two
interested UF students, David and
Adrienne Lieberman Parama's


parents started practicing and
offered Gargamuni use of their
home in the student ghetto.
"Basically they made their
little duplex a temple," Parama
Lieberman said. "The first temple
in Gainesville."
Krishnas began serving food
out of the house, and when lunch-

Fouke eyed for LSU job


* UF PROVOST ONE OF SIX CANDI-
DATES FOR LSU CHANCELLOR.

By LIA GANOSELLIS

eganosellis@alligator.org

UF Provost Janie Fouke, who announced
her resignation from her post about a
month ago, has been selected as one of six
public candidates for the chancellor posi-
tion at Louisiana State University.
UF President Bernie Machen announced
that Fouke would resign from her UF posi-
tion at a March 14 meeting of the Board of
Trustees, UF's highest governing body. Her
decision to leave came amidst a major finan-


cial restructuring of UF's administration.
At the meeting, Machen also announced
that budget operations overseen by the
Office of the Provost and the University
Controller's Office would
be moved to the office of
Matt Fajack, who became
UF's chief financial officer
in January. Machen said
Fouke would work at
UF's International Center
for a year after she leaves
Fouke her post.
In an e-mail obtained
by The Gainesville Sun, Fouke described
Machen's move as a "power grab" to Mark

The first full-scale test of UF's emergency-
notification system on Friday has been dubbed
a success by UF officials, but questions about
the text-messaging test still linger.
The test included four parts: text messag-
ing, e-mails, Web site updates and reverse-911
calls,
UF's text-messaging service has grown
to include 56,795 cell-phone numbers since a
January test of about 44,000, but nearly 4,400
phones never received Friday's text from UF's
text-messaging provider, Mobile Campus,
said UF spokesman Steve Orlando.
Orlando said it could take at least a week
to learn why the message did not reach those
numbers and how long it took to reach the
remaining 52,400 phones.
"We can't say whether that part was a suc-


cess or not," he said. "We want to know just as
badly as everyone else."
A January text-messaging test yielded an
86 percent success rate, reaching about 42,000
of 44,000 numbers on the roster. In that test, it
took 50 minutes to reach the masses.
"We want to know just as badly as
everyone else."
Steve Orlando
UFspokesman

UF officials anticipated Friday's test e-
mails to reach the inboxes of more than 92,000
people in a couple of hours. The message, sent
at 9 a.m., reached all its destinations in less
than an hour after being sent by the Alachua
County Sheriff's Office, Orlando said.
Ninety-five of those e-mails were received in

performance troupe, will merge
hip-hop, acting, dancing, video,
graffiti and more into an hour-
long performance Monday
and Tuesday in its new show,
"Reaching Through the Static."
The 13-member ensemble
worked to unite three hip-hop
songs with the theme of con-
nection.
"We want people to real-
ize that not everybody needs
to be the same as you in order
for you to accept them," said
Daniel Flores, co-director for
the group.
Each member contributed to
the storyline through improvi-
sational exercises that were later
refined into short sketches.
Forces said the group dissects
and performs a new theme each
semester.


Ryan Ruby, a fine arts senior
and group member, said Signs
of Life promotes hip-hop music
because the lyrics have a way of
bringing people together, regard-
less of skin color.
"I love that hip-hop is about
speaking your mind and doing it
in such a way that you are coaxing
people's ears into hearing what
you have to say," Ruby said.
The group will perform
"Reaching Through the Static"
Monday and Tuesday at 8 p.m.
in room G-15 of the Constans
Theatre.

Students mark Passover


* HOLIDAY'S TIMING COULD MAKE
LIFE DIFFICULT FOR UF STUDENTS.

By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org

When Katie Krasne, a UF freshman, went
out Saturday night, all she wanted was her
family.
Krasne said she thought back to her
home in Ft. Lauderdale where her family
was gathering for the first night of Passover,
a Jewish holiday celebrating the Jews' lib-
eration from slavery in Egypt.
But Passover, which changes dates every
year because it follows a lunar calendar,
falls around finals week this year, prevent-
ing many of the some 6,500 Jewish students
at UF from being with their families.
The holiday's timing being so close
to UF's final exams could make life even
more difficult for students who must juggle
studying and other stresses with Passover's
dietary restrictions.
Passover lasts seven or eight days
depending on the branch of Judaism.
Regardless of how long it is celebrated, the
first night of the holiday is devoted to a spe-
cial meal called a Seder.
The Seder consists of a series of blessings
and a retelling of the Jews' exodus out of
Egypt, followed by a dinner.
- The main food at the Seder is matzoh,
an unleavened cracker eaten to remember
the Jews' flee from Egypt when they left
so quickly that there wasn't time for their
bread to rise.
Matzoh will be a popular food for UF's
Jewish students in the next week. During
Passover, Jews abstain from eating any
foods made with yeast, including bread,
pasta and cookies.
Krasne spent the first night of Passover
at UF Hillel with more than 250 other
Jewish students whose studying kept them
in Gainesville for the holiday.


Ashley Horowitz, a freshman, said she
has been observing Passover at home since
she was young, but she said it might be
harder to find Passover-friendly foods at
college.
"I can't just walk into Little Hall or Gator
Dining Services and have a sandwich,"
Horowitz said.
Emily Hendel, a sociology and psychol-
ogy junior, said that's why she doesn't fol-
low Passover's dietary rules.
"It just ends up being too much of a
hassle," Hendel said.
She also works at the gym, so it'd be hard
to stay energized on the job without eating
carbohydrates, she said.
Instead, she said she celebrates Passover
by participating in the Seder.
But she said the holiday still
dent comes at an inconvenient time
for her this year because of a
complicated schedule.
With six tests to study for, it's hard to
find time to observe Passover, she said.
Last year was no better for Josh Pollock,
a UF wildlife ecology and conservation se-
nior.
The first night of Passover in 2007 was on
the same night as the NCAA men's basket-
ball championship game, and Pollock said
he had to skip half the Seder so he could
play in the band at the O'Connell Center.
Pollock said he thinks of Passover as a
time to spend with family, but since coming
to college, he's had to adjust.
He usually attends the Passover Seder at
Hillel or hosts his own,,he said.
As Krasne. stood outside the dining room
where the Seder was held, she said she
would probably attend Hillel's events in her
next three years at UF.
But even though she won't be using her
family's prayer books, there will always be
one item that makes her feel like she's in Ft.
Lauderdale, she said.
"I love matzoh," she said. "It reminds me
of home."

Faculty council recommends textbook-royalty revisions


* CHANGES CLARIFY WHEN FACUL-
TY CAN COLLECT BOOK ROYALTIES.

By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

A UF council made recommendations to
clean up a textbook-royalty policy for UF
faculty members who assign books they
authored in courses they teach.
Carol Murphy, a French professor and
UF's Academic Policy Council chairwom-
an, said the updated policy, presented at
Thursday's meeting of UF's Faculty Senate,
clears up ambiguity with new requirements
that protect students and authors' legal
rights.
Rick Yost, UF Faculty Senate chairman,
said the council, which was charged with
updating the policy about a year ago, has


made reasonable recommendations.
The current policy, which Yost said "isn't
modem enough," requires that professors
report whether they have a financial interest
in the materials assigned in their classes.
Murphy said faculty may continue to
accept royalties on authored materials after
the college's dean and department chair ap-
prove evidence that a national market has
adopted the textbook.
Faculty should continue to report finan-
cial interests, and they must also show that
choosing a textbook is primarily for aca-
demic reasons.
"No one doubts faculty would do any-
thing other than that," she said.
The council cleaned up ambiguity in the
language with a new "50 percent" rule. If
half of a textbook's sales come from outside
UF, faculty members are within their legal
rights to collect royalties.
This rule would help protect students


from being forced to buy a certain book
without it being in their academic best inter-
est, she said.
"Students will be happy with this,"
Murphy said.
She said the policy changes would be fair
to faculty as well, and she wants people to
realize there's nothing wrong with faculty
accepting royalties from a textbook under
fair conditions.
"Students will be happy with this."
Carol Murphy
UF professor


It's "pretty prestigious" to take a class
taught by an instructor with a nationally
adopted textbook who is established in his
or her field, she said.
The council also adjusted a few other
policy rules, such as one that required cop-


ies of faculty members' textbooks be kept in
UF's libraries.
Murphy said members of UF's law school
convinced the council that the requirement
could interfere with legal rights.
The council recommended that UF get
rid of it, especially because the books also
take up library space and raise uncertain-
ties about how many copies would be suf--
ficient.
In addition, the council asked faculty to
"take price into consideration" when as-
signing course materials because of rising
textbook costs.
. The council also suggests creating an ad-
visory board to deal with these "gray areas"
as they come up.
Murphy said she didn't know how many
UF faculty members used textbooks they
authored.
The policy update still requires approval
by UF's Faculty Senate.


Long-running book sale's record day benefits libraries


By JESSICA PONN
Alligator Staff Writer
jponn@alligator.org

After 58 years, Gainesville's Friends
of the Library volunteers run their
semi-annual book sales like clockwork.
But the events which draw thou-
sands of customers each year and raise
hundreds of thousands of dollars for
the county's library district didn't
always run so smoothly.
Before the volunteers secured their
15,000 square foot facility, the sales
were held at empty grocery stores
and open garages, where birds would
"mark" the books, said Joan Curl, the
group's president.
Until the 80s, the sales used to
kick off on Wednesdays instead of
Saturday, limiting the number of
customers who could shop, said Linda
Connell, who has worked at 46 sales.
And only since the 1990s has the
group begun to hold the events twice
a year.
But after much trial and error, the
volunteers have the book sale down
to a science.
They spend hours upon hours sort-
ing and pricing the books.
"We work all year round getting


ready for the sales," Curl said. "There's
no down time. It's a small army."
Saturday morning, as the volunteers
launched their spring 2008 sale, 717
people poured into their warehouse
within the first eight minutes of the
sale, and by the end of the afternoon,
the group had raised $83,479.05, a
spring record.
For the volunteers,
Local knowing they will
News donate that money to
Alachua County libraries
makes all the work worthwhile.
The money helps pay for a variety
of events, including children's pro-
grams and guest speakers. It also funds
partial scholarships for librarians to fin-
ish their higher education degrees.
"This district is the envy of the state
because of the scholarship program,"
Curl said. "They love it."
She estimated more than 100 librar-
ians have gone back to school thanks to
the group. But the sales benefit more
than just libraries.
Larry DiMatteo, who shopped both
Saturday and Sunday, said the sale has
become an annual trip for him and his
11-year-old son, Ian.
"This is a great way to build a fam-
ily tradition," DiMatteo said.

UF students' documentary wins production grant


* DCOUMENTARY FOLLOWS
FATHER OF MURDERED GIRL.

By AMBER EHRKE
Alligator Contributing Writer

When a news story bearing a
Homosassa dateline came up on his
computer screen three years ago, UF
Documentary Institute student Boaz
Dvir stopped to read it. News from
his small Florida hometown rarely
showed up in the national media.
He read about Jessica Lunsford,
a missing 9-year-old girl who went


to the same elementary school his
sister did.
"I immediately started follow-
ing the story," he said. "I became
emotionally involved." A year and a
half later, Dvir and institute partner
Rebecca Goldman started making an
observational documentary about
Jessica's father, Mark Lunsford.
After spending countless late
nights and $10,000 on the movie,
the students recently won a $1,000
production grant.
Their hour-long film, "Jessie's
Dad," chronicles the crusade of
Lunsford, a trucker-turned-activist


whose daughter was kidnapped,
raped and murdered by a neighbor
in 2005. Dvir and Goldman followed
Lunsford as he advocated "Jessie's
Law" around the country. The law
typically establishes mandatory
minimum sentences for convicted
suspects and restricts where paroled
offenders are allowed to live.
"Jessie's Dad" was the only
documentary in the country to win a
2008 Carole Fielding Student Grant,
which is awarded by the University
Film and Video Association. Roberts
said there are only a handful of
production grants available in the


nation. He noted that Goldman
and Dvir's grant proposal stood out
because of their print-journalism
background. He also emphasized
the power of Lunsford's story.
"I became emotionally
involved."
Boaz Dvir
UF Documentary Institute student

In addition to the grant, the stu-
dents were also awarded a $1,000
Direct Cinema Limited Outstanding
Documentary Award.


Dvir said he doesn't care as
much for the award as he does for
the grant money. The money shows
that someone cares about the film
and what the documentary-makers
are doing, and the money will go
toward finishing the film, he said.
Winning the grant shows that the
story hit a nerve with the judges,
he said.
Dvir and Goldman will screen
"Jessie's Dad" May 2 at 6:30 p.m.
in the Reitz Union Auditorium. The
screening, which is free and open
to the public, will be followed by a
reception.

Editorial


Royalty Rip-off

Vague policy might not

stop exploitation
There are some things that change almost every
semester: roommates, classes and professors.
But the one thing that seems to remain constant is the
temporary sticker price shock every student faces when the
cash register rings up the astronomical cost of textbooks.
That begins the first semester of freshman year and won't
stop until graduation.
And since textbook prices are increasing at more than two
times the inflation rate for all finished goods, according to the
Government Accountability Office in 2005, it won't be going
away anytime soon.
Some students try to curb the costs by ordering used books
online, sharing texts or simply not buying them at all, but
we're glad government and university officials have finally
begun to realize there is a problem.
This past Wednesday the House voted unanimously in fa-
vor of a bill aiming to make buying textbooks more affordable.
The bill would require state universities to provide textbook
information to students at least 30 days before the first day of
classes.
And the recent announcement that UF will begin placing
stricter requirements on faculty who receive royalties from
textbooks sold to their own students is definitely a step in the
right direction.
While some professors show compassion for students pay-
ing the cost of higher education by requiring a limited num-
ber of textbooks and merely suggesting supplements, others
seems to anticipate profiting off of a large captive audience
- students taking a required course.
It's more than unfair that those who choose the books we
must buy carelessly disregard the reality of living on a bud-
get.
The fact that some avaricious professors continue to pull
in an enormous profit from requiring books that they've au-
thored even if those are not necessarily the best materials
or even the most cost effective is also not anything new on
college campuses.
It's one thing to be exploited by the $3.4 billion-a-year
higher-education publishing industry, but it's another to know
that the money you hand over at the checkout counter will
inevitably end up in your professor's back pocket.
While the UF measure will hopefully keep an eye on profes-
sors who are exploiting the very students they are supposed to
be instructing, we're worried that it may be a little too lenient.
Professors who require students to purchase their text-
books would have to provide evidence that there is a "reason-
able likelihood" that more than 50 percent of their profits will
be from customers other than UF students in two years. They
would also have to show that the book is sold at a fair price
and is of satisfactory academic quality.
But the main problem we have is: that the policy does not
specify any penalty if a textbook doesn't reach the target for
outside sales in the time required.
Though the provost would be empowered to approve or
disapprove of a faculty member who frequently receives prof-
its, we're wondering why it was only left up to one person to
make that decision.
Perhaps it would be a better idea to allow a committee to
annually review professors who receive royalties, evaluate the
materials they have chosen and decide whether they are tak-
ing advantage of their position.
We appreciate any concern UF shows for students strug-
gling to pay for textbooks amid the rising cost of college, but
it's important to make sure these institutional measures don't
amount to empty promises.

Column

Pope's U.S. visit a showcase of excess


ake me out to the ball game, take me out to the crowd,
buy me some peanuts and -
OMG! Is that the pope?!
OMG! It is the pope.
Pope Benedict XVI concluded his six-day U.S. visit by cel-
ebrating Mass in Yankee Stadium on Sunday with a crowd of
more than 57,000. OMG! Arena Catholics unite.
But no papal shindig in the States would be complete
without CNN commentators.
One newscaster in the bleachers was really excited before
the pope arrived: "We got a papal pep rally goin' on down
here, if you will." No, thank you. I will not.
Other analysts talked about the pope's kindness and can-
dor, his "humility, sincerity and selflessness." I know, right?
It's like he's the pope or something.
And for visuals, look at the dove-shaped puppets flocking
during the pre-show. Amazing.
r especially appreciated comments about the weather:
how the pope's arrival always seems to stop rain clouds and
usher in cear skies. If only the pope could hang out along the
Gulf Coast during hurricane season...
Oh, I almost forgot about the Mercedes-Benz known as
the popemobile. Couldn't they have come up with a more
sophisticated name? That's only a letter away from the car
Batman drives.
What about Holy Wheels? Or Papal Rider? Catholic
Cruiser? Just throwing them out there.
Before the Mass, the pope's wheels took a lap around
the stadium. After parking ih a really great spot up front (he
backed the car in so he could get out quicker after Mass), the
pope approached the ornate, diamond-shaped altar.
TV cameras caught a cute kid reaching out to give the
Holy Father a high five, but some lady pushed him away.
Real nice. What would Jesus do?
Anyway, the last time so many people prayed in Yankee
Stadium was [insert last time Yankees lost a World Series
game].


And I haven't heard that much
applause at a Catholic Mass since
[insert last time Jesus himself ap-
peared at a Mass].
Still, I can't decide which is more
boring: a baseball game or a religious
Vincent Massaro service. Either way, there's that mo-
letters@aligator.org ment when you think, "This could go
on forever."
But it won't be the distribution of
nearly 60,000 communion wafers that puts us behind sched-
ule. We've got 530 priests and 15 minutes. Begin.
All right, Holy See, Yankee Stadium is great, but you
should totally come to the Swamp. That there's a real crowd.
But regardless of the better venue, why didn't the pope
come to Florida? He is 81, after all, and we have a ton of re-
tirement communities down here.
OK, sorry, that was a cheap shot. And I know the pope
doesn't like anything cheap.
Check out that solid gold crucifix the size of your face
hanging from his neck. It would make any gangsta rapper
jealous. Sweeeet!
You see, each article of religious clothing symbolizes a
different part of the faith. Together, all of them symbolize the
Catholic Church is rich.
Pope-y had that apple-bottom alb (alb), hat with gold rim
(with gold rim). The whole cub was looking' at him ... Wait,
why's the thurible (incense holder) only silver?
And that ring on his finger oh my goodness. Hello,
three months worth of God's wages. That guy must make
a killing.
As for using this wealth to feed the increasing number
of hungry children worldwide: Kids are picky eaters whose
palates aren't mature enough to appreciate the taste of solid
gold.

Letters to the :..:; :
SDS thinks globally and acts locally
The Alligator's accusation that Students for
a Democratic Society are hunger striking for
personal glory is unfounded.
I don't recall this line of reasoning when
students at the University of Miami struck
for janitors to get a recognized union last year.
You listed historical hunger strikes which you
implied were more noble, but SDS is fighting
to get the University of Florida to reveal its
investments so that the school's monies don't
go to corporations that engage in child labor,
gross environmental destruction and other
dubious practices that they would rather keep
quiet.
SDS's goal is to provide a negative econom-.
ic consequence to those corporations: they're
thinking globally and acting locally.
You might call their methods extreme, but
in our experience UF traditionally ignores
reasoned pleas unless accompanied by direct
action.
Deeb Kitchen and Bret Seferian
Graduate Assistants United co-presidents

Coverage should focus on the issues
It strikes me as odd that the Alligator
Editorial Board consistently emphasizes
the "problems" with SDS' protest tactics, as
opposed to emphasizing and exploring the
actual social problems that SDS is trying to
address. Whether or not someone agrees or


disagrees with the way SDS goes about doing
its activism, I would think most people would
agree that their causes are noble,, especially
if students were able to find out more about
them.
To me, that should be the focus of the
Alligator's editorials, since it is the respon-
sibility of "independent" university media
like the Alligator to examine the issues in our
society that the mainstream American media
will not cover.
Instead, we as students are constantly in-
undated with the Alligator Editorial Board's
personal attacks against the character of SDS
members. I, for one, am not really feeling the
Alligator's Editorial Board becoming a sur-
rogate father figure whose energies (and ink)
seem to be constantly spent scolding campus
activists.
David Reznik
sociology Ph.D. candidate

UF should adopt responsible investing
Both the Alligator and the UF student body
support establishing a committee on socially
responsible investment (SRI) to align the en-
dowment with UF's mission and values. This
is a great idea.
By adopting such a committee, UF would
join with 24 other schools around the country,
including 16 of the top 20 (according to U.S.
News and World Report) that have chosen


to apply SRI strategies to their endowments.
These schools represent over $112 billion in
combined endowment assets and have proven
SRI does not adversely affect the bottom line.
How can schools use SRI without hurting
their investments?
By engaging in shareholder advocacy,
divesting when appropriate, engaging in posi-
tive investing in companies that exemplify
good environmental, social, and governance
practices, and by remaining accountable to
their communities with town halls for stu-
dents to bring forward their concerns.
Nowhere are they required to release their
portfolios to the public daily or to severely
limit their investments.
Most schools release holdings only with a
six-month time lag, and most do not engage in
screening investments. A UF committee could
easily adopt such practices.
I encourage students, faculty, and staff to
support the UF Responsible Endowments
Coalition as it continues to lobby for an SRI
committee.
The administration has the information it
needs and the students have spoken. Its time
for the administration to act.

Voters must decide on best candidate
I am disappointed that the Alligator would
publish the blatantly slanted article by Drew
Harwell on the upcoming congressional elec-
tion for District 6.
Mr. Harwell seems a bit disappointed that
the congressman would vote for Republican
positions 90.8 percent of the time. Last I
checked, Congressman Steams is a Republican
and a very principled one at that. I don't see
what the shock is here. Instead of throwing out
statistics, check your facts.
The fact of the matter is that a good look
at the congressman's record shows that he
has worked diligently and consistently for
the local community. He funneled large sums
of money to support UF research projects,'
worked to improve conditions at the VA hos-
pital and for veterans, and he has been very
responsive to the isolated rural communities
of this area. He is also reputed for strong fiscal
responsibility and family values. So much for
your "ultra-conservative moneyed interests."
I am a strong Stears supporter; however,
I respect Mr. Cunha's bid to run for office. It
is an admirable sign of civic engagement and
democracy. I hope that the best man will win.
As for the Alligator, I say let the people de-
cide and stop publishing articles that make the
decisions for them.

Groups start Earth Day festivities early with concert


By KRISTEN HUFF

Local green-minded organiza-
tions hosted a concert on Sunday
to raise awareness about environ-
mental sustainability two days


before Earth Day.
UF's Student Leadership
Convergence, which is made up of
six UF organizations, hosted the
2008 Earth Day Music Festival on
the Alachua County Fairgrounds.
The event featured 11 bands from


Gainesville and Jacksonville,
with Chris McCarty as headliner.
About 200 people attended the
festival and all the bands except
the headliner played for free.

greenhouse gas emissions.
Gators for a Sustainable

co-hosted the event, arranged
free bus rides to cut down on
emissions, provided environ-
mentally friendly cups made of
corn, and said they would do-
nate all proceeds to the Alachua

To offset the emissions pro-
duced by the concert, group
members will be planting a tree
and giving away saplings on
the Reitz Union North Lawn on
Tuesday.

On stage, the bands were open


about their commitment to sus-
tainability. Most made reference
to loving the Earth.
When a Hummer drove on the

Dance competition showcases different cultures


* MORE THAN 5,000 ATTEND
VISA'S ANNUAL TALENT SHOW.

By RACHEL ARROYO
Alligator Writer

With the whip of a colorful sari,
the beat of an African drum and the
fluttering wave of a fan, UF danc-
ers held their audience spellbound
with every kick, twirl and back
flip.
Students from eight multicul-
tural organizations treated more
than 5,000 people to a feast for the
eyes and ears at the Volunteers
for, International Student Affairs
annual talent show held Saturday
night at the O'Connell Center.


This year's show, titled "Pieces
of Us," emphasized the roots of
each culture and their evolution
through a series of dance pieces,
said Jessica Marshall, international
month director.
"Everyone has a little piece of
culture that they like to call their
own," Marshall said.
"Hello. Bonjour. Bienvenidos.
Jambo," said the emcees, UF stu-
dents Sabdy Pacheco and Jesse B.
Wright, as they welcomed attend-
ees in several languages.
Ankle bracelets jingled as Indian
Inc., the reigning champions, filed
on stage. The circular, linear and
diamond-shaped dance forma-
tions were almost as intricate as the
elaborate saris, a traditional Indian


female garment.
. Kat Warwick, a second-year
engineering student, particularly
enjoyed Indian Inc.'s choreography
and the exposure to multicultural
influences.
"These activities are important
to have on campus so that people
who are really white, like me, have
an outlet," Warwick said.
But the precision and celebra-
tion of traditional dances didn't
end with Indian Inc.'s dynamic
performance.
The Filipino Student Association
started its performance with a
dance telling the story of a Muslim
princess who gets lost in the woods,
said Jenny Lapnawan, the group's
cultural dance director.


Girls waved glittering white fans
as they weaved their way through a
mass of bamboo rods on the stage
floor in a piece called "singkil."

When all was said and done, the

expressing his culture through the
exhibition.
"Dance is universal," Rosalez
said.
"All cultures have dance, and
what better way is there to express
culture than through dance?"

Combat Challenge in the Oaks Mall parking lot Saturday morning.


Firefighters battle for pride


By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

They don't make fire mar-
shall rookie cards. There are no
"Fastest Extinguished" records
used in fantasy leagues. And you
may not see a firefighter's face in
Sports Illustrated,
Still, it's not hard to see that
the competitors of this weekend's
Firefighter Combat Challenge
in the Oaks Mall parking lot are
fine-tuned athletes worthy of
sporting legend.
The challenge? Racing seven
flights up a tower in a bulky fire-
proof suit, blasting a target with
a high-powered hose, rescuing a
mannequin from almost certain
doom. The challengers? Normal,
everyday firefighters from sta-
tions across the state.
The prize? That's not so tan-


gible. Do they do it for the cham-
pionship ring, for pride or just for
bragging rights?
"It's the closest you can
get to death without
dying."
Brandon Folkers
firefighter

For the men of the Venice
Fire Department, the answer is
all three.
For the last three months,
firefighters like Brandon Folkers;
and Eric Putnal have practiced
running, lifting and chopping for
the challenge in a Venice training
academy.
"There is no type of running
or treadmill that can prepare
you for this," Putnal said after
Saturday's race. "It's the hardest
two minutes of your life."


Folkers, not trying to hide his
exhaustion, agreed.
"It's the closest you can get
to death," he said, "without dy-
ing."
According to the president
and co-designer of the challenge,
Paul Davis, that means the race
is working. Davis, a former re-
searcher with the University of
Maryland, said he created the
challenge in 1974 as a physical
test for applicant firefighters.
It wasn't until the '90s that the
challenge became a benchmark
event for competitive fire units to
track their prowess against oth-
ers nationwide.
As grueling as it sounds,
Davis and others said the adrena-
line rush of the challenge can't
be beat.
"Firefighters, by nature, are
competitive," he said. "In the fire
service, this is a very big deal."

Alachua Hare Krishna community includes schools, 750-member temple


KRISHNA, from page 1

time crowds grew to about 70
people a day, they decided to take
the food to the Plaza.
They continued to serve there
until the late 1970s, when the uni-
versity ordered the Krishnas to
comply with certain health codes,
which the Krishnas said were im-
possible.
When Parama's father contin-
ued to serve the food, he was ar-
rested.
But the case against the Krishnas
didn't hold up in court, said
Kalakantha Das, the current presi-
dent of the Gainesville Krishna
House.
"The judge said, 'Let the
Krishnas have their picnic,'"


Kalakantha said. "It's part of our
religious expression."
In 1977, land was purchased in
the city of Alachua by Gainesville
Krishnas with the idea of creating
a sustainable agrarian community,
said Chaturatma, president of the
Krishna temple there.
Today, Gainesville's Krishna
population is small compared to the
750-persoh Alachua compound.
As Krishnas married and started
families in the 1980s, the focus of
the compound changed from farm-
ing to education. The community
is now centered around a temple
and two schools a Krishna day
school and an Alachua County
charter school staffed mostly by
Krishnas.


Following Krishna


Though food is spiritually im-
portant for Krishnas, there's more
to their religion than eating lentil
soup and subji.
All devotees chant Krishna's
name many times a day as medita-
tion, Kalakantha said.
In addition, Krishnas are veg-
etarians and practice celibacy until
marriage.
They believe in karma, and
remain free from intoxicants in-
cluding caffeine, alcohol and mate-
rial possessions.
Each Sunday, local Krishnas
gather at the temple in Alachua, a
bright, tiled room with open glass
doors along either side.
They start by performing arotik,
a service in which they make offer-
ings to Krishna of fruit, flowers and
incense.


Hare Krishnas watch their leader light a candle during a worship service Saturday afternoon at New Ra-
man Reti, the Hare Krishna temple in Alachua.


SCongregants bring up offerings
and place them in a basket before
nine glittering statues of Krishna
and his companion, Radha, as
women in saris and men in loose
robes dance barefoot, chant and
beat on drums.
"Some people are like, 'I
need a cigarette. I'm like,
'I need to chant more
rounds.'"
Trey Rapczak
Gainesville resident

The service is followed by a
lesson on the Bhagavad-Gita, the
Krishnas' holy book, and prasa-
dam, a shared outdoor meal similar
to the one on the Plaza.
On holy days, the temple in
Alachua serves people from as far
away as Jacksonville and Orlando,
Chaturatma said.
People travel from all over the
country to be a part of the Alachua
community, he said. Members
come from about 15 nationalities
and speak about seven languages.
"The traditional sense of being
a Krishna is give up everything,
move into a temple, and that was
your life," Chaturatma said.
Now, he said, Krishnas pursue
careers as doctors or lawyers, he
said.
Lieberman's father, still a Hare
Krishna, now works as a First
Amendment lawyer in California.
"That guy that delivers your
UPS package could very well be
a Hare Krishna guy," Chaturatma
said.

Developing Relationships
Eating lunch on the Plaza is the
first place many devotees started to
explore Krishnaism, as it was for
Andres Salim, a UF biology junior.
Now a follower for more than
two years, Salim was looking for
religion.
"I think I'm the classic UF stu-
dent, to be honest," le said. "I was


fine, but you start to realize there's
more than just studying all the time
and partying all the time. There's
no peace in that."
Salim's family was open-mind-
ed about his choice, he said, but not
everyone is.
Trey Rapczak, a Gainesville
resident, said his mother wasn't
pleased when he became interested
in Krishnaism a year and a half
ago.
She finally kicked him out after
one argument too many.
"I was supposed to clean my
house," Rapczak said, "but for
hours, I was offering things up to
Krishna."
But Rapczak said he doesn't
regret his decision.
"Some people are like, 'I need
a cigarette,'" he said. "I'm like, 'I
need to chant more rounds.'"
But before he became a devo-
tee, Rapczak said he had small
hesitation. "Right before I started
chanting, I was like, 'Oh, what will
everyone think?'" he said.
People's reactions to Krishnas
are not always positive.
Lieberman said that while chant-
ing on the comer of 13th Street and
University Avenue, he's received
foul words and hand gestures. But
the Gainesville area, as a whole, he
said, has been welcoming.
"When I would walk around at
least the student area in my robes,
I'd never get any negative remark,"
he said.
The good relationship Krishnas
have with the Gainesville commu-
nity probably has something to do
with the food they've distributed
there for so long, he said.
But Chaturatma said he sees
something more spiritual at work.
According to Krishna teaching, he
said, certain places are home to
unusually large pockets of positive
energy
"My guess is that something
like that exists in Gainesville," he
said. "Otherwise you'd say, 'Why
here?'"

Festival celebrates black culture


* SOME VENDORS CAME FROM
CENTRAL AND WESTERN AFRICA-

By DAYNA MALEK
Alligator Contributing Writer
The smells of kettle corn and Jamaican
jerk chicken filled the air over the week-
end as local residents and visitors flocked
to the 29th annual Fifth Avenue Arts
Festival.
The festival, put on by the Cultural
Arts Coalition, is held every year on
Northwest Sixth Street to showcase black
culture in the community.
Vendors, some from as far as Central
and Western Africa, lined the street sell-
ing clothing, jewelry and more, and reg-
gae music artists performed.
"The purpose is to celebrate African
and African-American culture and en-
courage appreciation of the heritage,"
said LaShanta Harris, a volunteer with
the Cultural Arts Coalition.
The festival, which used to be held in
May to coincide with Malcolm X's birth-
day, was moved to April last year and
was expanded to include Earth Day.
"It helps bring a higher purpose to the
event," Harris said. "A lot of our African
traditions involve the Earth, so it is very
fitting to combine the two."
Nkwanda Jah, director of the Cultural
Arts Coalition and a founder of the festi-
val, said the festival is still developing.
Still, some residents, like Laura
Predny, come to the festival every year.
Predny, who lives in the neighbor-
hood where the festival is held, said it's a
nice representation of people and shows
the diversity in the community.
"It has really good entertainment,"
she said. "It will probably keep me up
all night."
Howard Lewis said this was his
first time attending the festival. Lewis,
a performing artist and teacher from
St. Augustine who goes by the name
of Xhabbo, sat alongside the vendors'
booths and slowly banged on an old


African drum known as a djembe.
Xhabbo said the festival is a way to
draw people together. "This will give the


young people the ability to experience
people from other countries," he said. "It
brings generations together."


Ajibola, an artist, hangs up a basket in his African art booth Sunday after-
noon at the 29th annual Fifth Avenue Arts Festival in downtown Gainesville.

Others also considering Fouke


FOUKE, from page 1
Workman, provost at the University
of North Florida. In a phone interview
Sunday, Fouke said she wouldn't
elaborate on her comment.
In an e-mail to the Alligator short-
ly after the announcement in March,
Fouke wrote that the new provost po-
sition would be "quite different" than
the position she held, and Machen
should "try to fill the new job with
a.person with a skill set that matches
that new job."
Fouke said that she has yet to


speak with anyone from LSU.
"This search is so preliminary it's
not worthy of comment," she wrote
in an e-mail. "Several search firms
have solicited
UF my resume,"
Administration she added,
Though she
wouldn't reveal names of institu-
tions.
She said LSU's search committee
would likely have 50 to 100 candi-
dates before it started seriously con-
sidering contenders.
An LSU spokesman couldn't be
reached for comment by press time.


Nearly 4,400 didn't receive message


TEXT, from page 1


17 minutes, according to an e-mail to Orlando
from Marc Hoit, UF's interim chief information
officer. A notice of the test on UF's Web page
was posted within four minutes of the notifica-
tion, Orlando said, and an update with more
information went up about 35 minutes later.
UF also tested its automated-telephone-
message system called a reverse-911 call. The
service dials landlines and cell phones of
students living in residence halls and leaves a
message detailing an emergency situation and
how to respond.
Occupants in Broward and Rawlings
residence halls and Rinker Hall were chosen to
receive the test voice messages. Orlando said
recipients were asked to confirm if they under-
stood the message by pushing a button, but


many didn't wait for the message to play out.
Out of 770 calls made to phones in the area,
567 voicemails and 120 hang-ups were regis-
tered in just over 7 minutes a 93 percent
success rate, said Kenneth Allen, emergency
management coordinator.
Fifteen minutes later, UPD expanded the
area's radius by 700 feet to include more build-
ings and people, simulating a real
Public active-shooter scenario. Of 1,100
Safety calls placed, 725 voicemails, 191
hang-ups and 61 confirmations
were made over a 10-minute period, Alien
said. The expanded run was 89 percent suc-
cessful. Some messages were not left because
of incorrect cell phone numbers and busy sig-
nals, Allen said.
He said he is pleased with the numbers,
but he would have liked to see more people
answer their phones.

UF sweeps UK to keep streak alive


* JUNIOR STACEY NELSON PITCHED TWO
ONE-HITTERS IN THREE GAMES.

By KYIE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

The finish line is starting to come into focus.
Riding the longest winning streak in schoolhisto-
ry- 24 games No. 3 UF (51-2,21-1 Southeastern
Conference) completed a sweep of Kentucky (16-31,
3-19 SEC) at Pressly Stadium on Sunday.
"It's always fun," senior Mary Ratliff said of
playing the Wildcats. "Anytime you beat a good
SEC opponent, it's good for us."
The Gators have proven to be better than good
this season, using Sunday's 8-0 blowout to set the
school record for most wins in a season, breaking
the previous mark set by last year's team, which
finished 50-22.
UF is in line to take home the second regular-
season SEC title in history, holding a slim one-game
lead over No. 1 Alabama (44-3,23-2 SEC).
While making history within the conference is a
big step for the Gators, coach Tim Walton has not
lost track of the lofty goal the team has had all year.
"We still have the same goal, to get to the College
World Series," he said. "If we win the SEC along the
way, if we accomplish hosting a regional, super
regional along the way, great. But right now we're
still focused on getting to the College World Series
and figuring out how to be the best every game to
get to that goal."
Trotting out junior Stacey Nelson to the circle is
usually enough to make the Gators the best team on
the field in every game.
The heart and soul of UF's team ran her record
to 33-2 after pitching her second complete game
- a mercy-rule-shortened five-inning affair and
one-hitter of the weekend in the final matchup of
the three-game series.
Junior Ali Gardiner led the way for the offense,
going 2 for 4, scoring one run and driving in four,
including a three-run double to end the game in the

spark to my

writing career

Think there is one moment in every
journalist's career when he or she has
an epiphany. It's the exact moment that
tells the person, this is why you chose to
become a reporter.
For me, that moment happened in
Atlanta at the 2007 Final Four.
After the buzzer sounded in the Georgia
Dome and the Gators clinched their second
title, chaos ensued on the court. As I stood
on the sideline with my notepad and tape
recorder and brushed off the orange, blue,
yellow and white streamers that fell from
the ceiling, Corey Brewer jumped on top of
the scorer's table.
Al Horford and
Taurean Green
danced at center

Chris Richard

FloorJenna-ral Hodge into the air,
jmarina@alligator.org but I focused on
none of that.
Instead, my eyes became transfixed on
Joakim Noah as he ran into the stands and
frantically climbed the steps searching forl-t
his mother.
He almost ran by her, but when she
reached out for him, he gripped on to
her so tight that she actually shook. As I
watched him bury his head into her right
shoulder, I saw everything he felt. The
past several months culminated in that
embrace. All the sweat, the sprints and the
judgment were worth it because now he
was a champion, again.
Years from now, I can't say I will re-
member how many miles I put on my
Nissan Sentra while driving around the
Southeastern Conference. I don't know if I
will be able to tell you how many 3-point-
ers Lee Humphrey swished or at what
minute Chris Richard fouled out of the
title game.
But I will always remember that mo-
ment because it's those moments that
make my job have meaning. And if it
wasn't for the people I'm about to men-
tion; I wouldn't have had this job at all.
So I extend my heartfelt thanks to...

UF drops series to Kentucky


Toledo walks in winning run


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

Until the last pitch of the series,
it was impossible to tell whether
UF or No. 25 Kentucky was the
better baseball team.
-But with a 3-1 count in the bot-
tom of the 10th inning, the answer
finally showed itself: Kentucky, by
90 feet.
After a leadoff double from
Wildcats left fielder Keenan Wiley,
Collin Cowgill reached on a bunt
and Sawyer Carroll got to first with
an intentional walk.
UF freshman Tommy Toledo
then walked home the winning
-- run, giving some closure to an up-
and-down weekend.
Despite a quality outing from
starter Stephen Locke, the Gators
could not-get their offense going
enoughfto pass the Wildcats and
fell 3-2 in-exington on Sunday.
The Gators (25-15, 10-8
Southeastern Conference) lost the
first game of the series Friday, 11-
7, but got out to an early lead and
held it to win 13-7 on Saturday.
The losses mark UF's third
straight conference-series defeat.
Interestingly, because of the
Gators' travel schedule, the teams


agreed to have no new innings be-
gin after 4 p.m. If Toledo managed
to escape the 10th, the game would
have ended in a 2-2 tie.
At the plate, UF couldn't
break through against UK's Greg
Dombrowski until the top of the
sixth inning.
Left fielder Avery Barnes
singled through the left side, and
center fielder Matt den Dekker
smacked his second home run
of the weekend to
right field, tying the
game at 2-2.
"I thought den
Baseball Dekker's home
run gave us a lift,"
UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan said.
"The defense was very good; we
just couldn't stretch anything more
offensively. ... Offensively, we just
didn't get it done today."
But den Dekker's shot was all
the Gators could do against the
Wildcats. UF's five-through-nine
hitters walked away from the plate
empty-handed.
"We had a couple situations
where we let balls go down the
middle of the plate that we could
have taken good swings at,"
O'Sullivan said.
The Gators got a great start
from Locke, who went 6 2/3


innings with eight strikeouts.
Toledo (4-4), who usually starts on
Sunday, came out of the bullpen
to strike out Cowgill and pitched a
scoreless eighth and ninth inning
before collapsing in the 10th.
Cowgill got things started in
the bottom of the first inning with
a home run to left field.
On Saturday, UF got five hits,
three RBIs and three runs from
Barnes. He leads the team with a
.389 batting average and was 9 for
16 on the weekend.
Starter Patrick Keating (7-0,
2.68 ERA) improved on his perfect
record, allowing three runs in six
innings. UF scored more than 10
runs for the first time since an 11-10
extra-innings loss to North Florida
on April 2.
Saturday's game lasted four
hours and 20 minutes.
First baseman Brandon
McArthur got a start on both
Friday and Saturday, hitting 5
for 9 with two RBIs. The week-
end marked his first action since
rupturing his anterior cruciate
ligament in that same April 2 game
against the Ospreys.
Friday, the Gators took a 7-6
lead in the seventh off a two-run
homer by, den Dekker, but UF's
bullpen couldn't hold the lead.

Nelson's ERA at 0.71

SOFT, from page 21

bottom of the fifth inning.
"I had to make an adjustment, because I hit the ball opposite
field, and they pitch me away, away, away," Gardiner said of her
line-drive double down the right-field line.
Saturday, Nelson started the first game of the doubleheader,
allowing only two base runners on the way to an 8-0 victory.
The All-American ace has often held opponents to one hit in
a game, but a no-hitter has been the one elusive accomplishment
,of an otherwise tremendous career.
: One-hitters are so much cooler," she said,
brushing off the importance of a no-hitter.
In the second game Saturday, the Gators
jumped out to a 6-1 lead in the fourth inning
but narrowly escaped with the win.
Freshman Stephanie Brombacher ran into
trouble in the sixth inning when she allowed
Brombacher Kentucky to score four earned runs, cutting
the lead to one. Walton pulled Brombacher in
favor of Nelson with one out in the inning, ultimately preserving
Brombacher's undefeated record, 16-0, and a 6-5 UF win.
"Amazingly enough, I don't get that nervous this year,"
Ratliff said of watching the Wildcats' comeback. "We got Stacey
Nelson in the bullpen at all times to come in and dose it out."
The save was the fourth of the season for Nelson, who low-
ered her ERA to a paltry 0.71 after the three-game set.
After the series, Gardiner pointed to the team's defense when
asked what she thought the team did particularly well over the
weekend. UF was error-free on the series.
"Finally, 54 games into the season, we're there," she said.
"We're where we should've been two games into the season, and
it feels good."

Gators sweep doubles matches but falter in singles to lose championship


TENNIS, from page 21

doubles point in routine fashion,
8-1 and 8-6. UF failed to lose a
doubles match the entire tourna-
ment and has not lost the doubles
point all season.
Freshman Julia Cohen fell 6-2,
6-1 to tie the match before senior
Lolita Frangulyan put the Gators
back on top 2-1 with her 6-1, 6-2
win.
Senior Whitney Benik lost her
second match in as many days,


6-2, 6-4, after snapping her 15-
match win streak Saturday.
With the score tied at 2,
sophomore Csilla Borsanyi came
up short 6-4, 6-4 to put Georgia
ahead for the first time.
"We were clearly better than
they were in doubles, but we
got off to a slow, slow start in
singles," Thornqvist said. "We
were outplayed today. That's just
the bottom line."

two courts, and sophomores
Anastasia Revzina and Marrit
Boonstra, already down a set


each, won second-set tiebreakers
to force third sets.
Revzina tied the score at 3
with a 2-6, 7-6 (8-6), 6-3 victory,
leaving Boonstra's match to de-
cide the outcome.
"We were outplayed today.
That's just the bottom

Tied at 4-4 in the final set,
Boonstra was broken by her op-.

match, 6-4, 6-7 (3), -6-4, ending
UF's bid for a tournament title
and its 17-match winning streak.
"That situation is something
everybody's gonna be in every
now and then in their career,
and that was Marrit's first,"
Thomqvist said. "And obviously
we're gonna be better off from
this experience, even though I
know she's terribly disappointed
now.
"But she's gonna be better off
next time she's in that spot."
UF swept No. 30 Auburn,
the host team, 4-0 on Friday in
the quarterfinal match on three

Women's golf team takes SEC title


UF's run ends


in SEC finals

By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

* The UF men's tennis team couldn't quite pull off
the improbable on Sunday.
After advancing all the way to the Southeastern
Conference Tournament final following its upset of
top-seeded Georgia on Saturday, the No. 12 Gators
(15-7) didn't have enough to defeat second-seeded
and sixth-ranked Mississippi (21-4) in the final and
fell 4-1.
"Anytime you play at that level two days in a
row, it's very demanding, but Ole Miss had to do the
same thing," UF coach Andy Jackson said. "I think
the difference in the match today was Ole Miss was a
superior team on the day and more experienced. We
played well, just not good enough to handle another
top-five team."
The fourth-seeded Gators
trounced the Rebels 5-2 on the road
earlier this season, and UF found
itself in a similar position to that
TenniS match early. The Gators dropped the
doubles point 8-4 and 8-4 to trail 1-0
as it did in the teams' first meeting.
In that match, UF rebounded from losing the dou-
bles point by winning five of six singles matches.
This time was a different story.
Mississippi extended its lead to 2-0 before senior
Nestor Briceno put UF on the board with a 6-3, 6-2
win. Briceno won all three of his matches and failed
to lose a set in the tournament.
Freshman Tyler Hochwalt was unable to force
a third set in his match and fell 7-5, 6-3, and senior
Greg Ouellette's 6-4, 6-2 loss clinched the title for the
Rebels, who ended the Gators' tournament run for
the third year in a row.
"Our team showed a lot of progress at this tour-
W nament," Jackson said. "They played very good
matches, and today we fought very hard. I'm very
proud of what the team was able to show."
But it was a bit of a surprise for the Gators to even
be in Sunday's match.
UF upset No. 3 Georgia 4-2 in a semifinal match on
Saturday. The defending national champion Bulldogs
had won the previous two SEC Tournament titles.
The Gators ended a four-match losing streak to
the Bulldogs, including a 5-2 loss at home earlier
this year.

It had been 13 years since the UF's women's golf team
found itself in the Southeastern Conference's victory lane.
So Sunday's drive, with the Gators nearly lapping the
field to get there, was especially sweet.
"It's about time," coach Jill Briles-Hinton said.
Her No. 5 Gators fired the only under-par round of the
SEC Championship on Sunday, a four-under 284, en route to
the eighth SEC title in program history.
UF paced the field on all three days of the weekend, ty-
ing with Arkansas at nine-over 297 on Friday, and shooting
a five-over 293 on Saturday to take a five shot lead over the
Razorbacks heading into the final round.
Sunday's performance saw that edge swell to a seventeen-
shot cushion, as the Gators finished at ten-over, barely within
shouting distance of second-place Arkansas.
"It was pretty dose at the beginning," Briles-Hinton said,
"but we were able to put an exclamation point on it."
UF punctuated the program's first conference title under
Briles-Hinton with a barrage of 18 final-round birdies. No
player had fewer than three birdies in her final round, with
senior Whitney Myers recording five tweeters and freshman
Jessica Yadloczky contributing four on the way to their three-
under 69s.
"It was pretty close at the beginning, but we
were able to put an exclamation point on it."
Jill Briles-Hinton
UF women's golf coach

Those scores matched the tournament-low 69 defend-
ing NCAA champion Stacy Lewis posted Friday, but while
Myers and Yadloczky couldn't catch the Arkansas star, the
Gator without a driver's license nearly had Lewis eating her
dust. Freshman Hannah Yun, who turned 16 last Sunday,
carded an even-par 72 on Sunday to finish just one shot
behind Lewis, alone in second place at one-under for the
weekend.
The duo played together on Sunday, and though Yun tied
for the lead after her birdie and a Lewis bogey on the par-5
14th, her bogey on the 16thcost the freshman a share of the in-
dividual championship. Still, the SEC title is quite a birthday
present, and Yun was happy to help a team full of veterans
finally make it to the mountaintop.
"They've been through so much," Yun said, referring to
the departure of senior Sandra Gal for the LPGA this year and
a frustrating run of postseason disappointment.
Briles-Hinton was quick to point to her team's drive and
effort up and down the roster.
"It's not about Hannah; it's about the team," she said.
Senior Tiffany Chudy, one of the cornerstones of the team,
agreed.
"It changes [things] when you know you have five play-
ers who could be on top," Chudy said. "Even when one of us
isn't going low, like I did (Sunday), everyone else still can."
Chudy's four-over 76 on Sunday dropped her from a tie

for third to sole possession of sixth place, but, as she pointed
out, the Gators' depth made up for that and then some.
Four players, from Yun at second to Yadloczky at 12th,
finished in the top 12 for the Gators, and the team's 284 was
the fourth-best round in UF history.
"To come out and do that," Chudy said, "we're just
thrilled."
The Gators will next play May 8th at NCAARegionals, the
site of which has yet to be determined.
UF's men's team also competed in its SEC Championship
this weekend, in St. Simons Island, Ga.
The No. 7 Gators finished fourth at eight-over parbut were
nineteen shots off the pace of champion and No. 2 Alabama
and ten shots behind third-place South Carolina.
"It was a disappointing day for us," coach Buddy
Alexander said. "We got off to a poor start and did not putt
very well today. I thought we didn't respond well like we
could have."
The men's team awaits a bid to an NCAA Regional, which
would begin on May 15th.

Some are interested enough to pick up a book off the self-service rack. A few attend classes on yoga or meditation at the Hare Krishna House on Northwest 14th Street. But to casual diners, the history and philosophy of the Hare Krishnas who serve them lunch remains a mystery. Building Foundations The first Krishna follower came to Gainesville in the fall of 1970, said Parama Lieberman, a Krishna who has documented the group's history. The Krishna movement had only just come to the United States from India in 1966. That follower, named Gargamuni, chanted on the Plaza each day, sharing Local food and information News with anyone who was curious. aEventually, two interested UF students, David and Adrienne Lieberman -Parama's parents -started practicing and offered Gargamuni use of their home in the student ghetto. "Basically they made their little duplex a temple," Parama Lieberman said. "The first temple in Gainesville."

By LIA GANOSELLIS Alligator Writer eganosellis@alligator.org UP Provost Janie Fouke, who announced her resignation from her post about a month ago, has been selected as one of six public candidates for the chancellor position at Louisiana State University. UF President Bernie Machen announced that Fouke would resign from her UF position at a March 14 meeting of the Board of Trustees, UF's highest governing body. Her decision to leave came amidst a major financial restructuring of UF's administration. At the meeting, Machen also announced that budget operations overseen by the Office of the Provost and the University Controller's Office would be moved to the office of Matt Fajack, who became UF's chief financial officer in January. Machen said Fouke would work at UF's International Center for a year after she leaves Fooke her post.

The test included four parts: text messaging, e-mails, Web site updates and reverse-911 calls. UF's text-messaging service has grown to include 56,795 cell-phone numbers since a January test of about 44,000, but nearly 4,400 phones never received Friday's text from UF's text-messaging provider, Mobile Campus, said UF spokesman Steve Orlando. Orlando said it could take at least a week to learn why the message did not reach those numbers and how long it took to reach the remaining 52,400 phones. "We can't say whether that part was a success or not," he said. "We want to know just as badly as everyone else." A January text-messaging test yielded an 86 percent success rate, reaching about 42,000 of 44,000 numbers on the roster. In that test, it took 50 minutes to reach the masses. "We want to know just as badly as everyone else." Steve Orlando UF spokesman UF officials anticipated Friday's test emails to reach the inboxes of more than 92,000 people ina couple of hours.

By DEBORAH SWERDLOW Alligator Writer dswerdlow@alligator.org When Katie Krasne, a UF freshman, went out Saturday night, all she wanted was her family. Krasne said she thought back to her home in Ft. Lauderdale where her family was gathering for the first night of Passover, a Jewish holiday celebrating the Jews' liberation from slavery in Egypt. But Passover, which changes dates every year because it follows a lunar calendar, falls around finals week this year, preventing many of the some 6,500 Jewish students at UF from being with their families. The holiday's timing being so close to UF's final exams could make life even more difficult for students who must juggle studying and other stresses with Passover's dietary restrictions. Passover lasts seven or eight days depending on the branch of Judaism. Regardless of how long it is celebrated, the first night of the holiday is devoted to a special meal called a Seder. The Seder consists of a series of blessings and a retelling of the Jews' exodus out of Egypt, followed by a dinner. The main food at the Seder is matzoh, an unleavened cracker eaten to remember the Jews' flee from Egypt when they left so quickly that there wasn't time for their bread to rise. Matzoh will be a popular food for UF's Jewish students in the next week. During Passover, Jews abstain from eating any foods made with yeast, including bread, pasta and cookies. Krasne spent the first night of Passover at UF Hillel with more than 250 other Jewish students whose studying kept them in Gainesville for the holiday. Ashley Horowitz, a freshman, said she has been observing Passover at home since she was young, but she said it might be harder to find Passover-friendly foods at college. "I can't just walk into Little Hall or Gator Dining Services and have a sandwich," Horowitz said. Emily Hendel, a sociology and psychology junior, said that's why she doesn't follow Passover's dietary rules. "It just ends up being too much of a hassle," Hendel said. She also works at the gym, so it'd be hard to stay energized on the job without eating carbohydrates, she said. Instead, she said she celebrates Passover by participating in the Seder. But she said the holiday still Student comes at an inconvenient time Life -for her this year because of a complicated schedule. With six tests to study for, it's hard to find time to observe Passover, she said. Last year was no better for Josh Pollock, a UF wildlife ecology and conservation senior. The first night of Passover in 2007 was on the same night as the NCAA men's basketball championship game, and Pollock said he had to skip half the Seder so he could play in the band at the O'Connell Center. Pollock said he thinks of Passover as a time to spend with family, but since coming to college, he's had to adjust. He usually attends the Passover Seder at Hillel or hosts his own,,he said. As Krasne stood outside the dining room where the Seder was held, she said she would probably attend Hillel's events in her next three years at UP. But even though she won't be using her family's prayer books, there will always be one item that makes her feel like she's in Ft. Lauderdale, she said. "I love matzoh," she said. "It reminds me of home." F$F Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change No Coupon Needed! No expiration date to remember! Just bring in a valid student ID to any Gainesville Jiffy Lube.

4, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, APRIL 21, 2008 Faculty council recommends textbook-royalty revisions 0 CHANGES CLARIFY WHEN FACULTY CAN COLLECT BOOK ROYALTIES. By ILEANA MORALES Alligator Writer imorales@aligator.org A UF council made recommendations to clean up a textbook-royalty policy for UF faculty members who assign books they authored in courses they teach. Carol Murphy, a French professor and UF's Academic Policy Council chairwoman, said the updated policy, presented at Thursday's meeting of UF's Faculty Senate, clears up ambiguity with new requirements that protect students and authors' legal rights. Rick Yost, UF Faculty Senate chairman, said the council, which was charged with updating the policy about a year ago, has made reasonable recommendations. The current policy, which Yost said "isn't modern enough," requires that professors report whether they have a financial interest in the materials assigned in their classes. Murphy said faculty may continue to accept royalties on authored materials after the college's dean and department chair approve evidence that a national market has adopted the textbook. Faculty should continue to report financial interests, and they must also show that choosing a textbook is primarily for academic reasons. "No one doubts faculty would do anything other than that," she said. The council cleaned up ambiguity in the language with a new "50 percent" rule. If half of a textbook's sales come from outside UF, faculty members are within their legal rights to collect royalties. This rule would help protect students from being forced to buy a certain book without it being in their academic best interest, she said. "Students will be happy with this," Murphy said. She said the policy changes would be fair to faculty as well, and she wants people to realize there's nothing wrong with faculty accepting royalties from a textbook under, fair conditions. "Students will be happy with this." Carol Murphy UF professor It's "pretty prestigious" to take a class taught by an instructor with a nationally adopted textbook who is established in his or her field, she said. The council also adjusted a few other policy rules, such as one that required copies of faculty members' textbooks be kept in UF's libraries. Murphy said members of UF's law school convinced the council that the requirement could interfere with legal rights. The council recommended that UF get rid of it, especially because the books also take up library space and raise uncertainties about how many copies would be sufficient. In addition, the council asked faculty to "take price into consideration" when assigning course materials because of rising textbook costs. The council also suggests creating an advisory board to deal with these "gray areas" as they come up. Murphy said she didn't know how many UF faculty members used textbooks they authored. The policy update still requires approval by UF's Faculty Senate. Long-running book sale's record day benefits libraries By JESSICA PONN Alligator Staff Writer jponn@alligator.org After 58 years, Gainesville's Friends of the Library volunteers run their semi-annual book sales like clockwork. But the events -which draw thousands of customers each year and raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for the county's library district -didn't always run so smoothly. Before the volunteers secured their 15,000 square foot facility, the sales were held at empty grocery stores and open garages, where birds would "mark" the books, said Joan Curl, the group's president. Until the 80s, the sales used to kick off on Wednesdays instead of Saturdays, limiting the number of customers who could shop, said Linda Connell, who has worked at 46 sales. And only since the 1990s has the group begun to hold the events twice a year. But after much trial and error, the volunteers have the book sale down to a science. They spend hours upon hours sorting and pricing the books. "We work all year round getting Maddie's Pet Rescue Project of Alachua County presents 6 convenient locations, 10 hours and 200 pets for you to love www.MaddiesPetRescue0fAhachua.srg ready for the sales," Curl said. "There's no down time. It's a small army." Saturday morning, as the volunteers launched their spring 2008 sale, 717 people poured into their warehouse within the first eight minutes of the sale, and by the end of the afternoon, the group had raised $83,479.05, a spring record. For the volunteers, Local knowing they will News donate that money to Alachua County libraries makes all the work worthwhile. The money helps pay for a variety of events, including children's programs and guest speakers. It also funds partial scholarships for librarians to finish their higher education degrees. "This district is the envy of the state because of the scholarship program," Curl said. "They love it." She estimated more than 100 librarians have gone back to school thanks to the group. But the sales benefit more than just libraries. Larry DiMatteo, who shopped both Saturday and Sunday, said the sale has become an annual trip for him and his 11-year-old son, Ian. "This is a great way to build a family tradition," DiMatteo said.

MONDAY, APRIL 21, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 5 UF students' documentary wins production grant E DCOUMENTARY FOLLOWS FATHER OF MURDERED GIRL. By AMBER EHRIKE Alligator Contributing Writer When a news story bearing a Homosassa dateline came up on his computer screen three years ago, UF Documentary Institute student Boaz Dvir stopped to read it. News from his small Florida hometown rarely showed up in the national media. He read about Jessica Lunsford, a missing 9-year-old girl who went to the same elementary school his sister did. "I immediately started following the story" he said. "I became emotionally involved." A year and a half later, Dvir and institute partner Rebecca Goldman started making an observational documentary about Jessica's father, Mark Lunsford. After spending countless late nights and $10,000 on the movie, the students recently won a $1,000 production grant. Their hour-long film, "Jessie's Dad," chronicles the crusade of Lunsford, a trucker-tumed-activist whose daughter was kidnapped, raped and murdered by a neighbor in 2005. Dvir and Goldman followed Lunsford as he advocated "Jessie's Law" around the country. The law typically establishes mandatory minimum sentences for convicted suspects and restricts where paroled offenders are allowed to live. "Jessie's Dad" was the only documentary in the country to win a 2008 Carole Fielding Student Grant, which is awarded by the University Film and Video Association. Roberts said there are only a handful of production grants available in the nation. He noted that Goldman and Dvir's grant proposal stood out because of their print-journalism background. He also emphasized the power of Lunsford's story. I became emotionally involved." Boaz DvIr UF Documentary Institute student In addition to the grant, the students were also awarded a $1,000 Direct Cinema Limited Outstanding Documentary Award. Dvir said he doesn't care as much for the award as he does for the grant money. The money shows that someone cares about the film and what the documentary-makers are doing, and the money will go toward finishing the film, he said. Winning the grant shows that the story hit a nerve with the judges, he said. Dvir and Goldman will screen "Jessie's Dad" May 2 at 6:30 p.m. in the Reitz Union Auditorium. The screening, which is free and open to the public, will be followed by a reception. "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" -4b.

6, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, APRIL 21, 2008 Editorial Royalty Rip-off Vague policy might not stop exploitation There are some things that change almost every semester: roommates, classes and professors. But the one thing that seems to remain constant is the temporary sticker price shock every student faces when the cash register rings up the astronomical cost of textbooks. That begins the first semester of freshman year and won't stop until graduation. And since textbook prices are increasing at more than two times the inflation rate for all finished goods, according to the Government Accountability Office in 2005, it won't be going away anytime soon. Some students try to curb the costs by ordering used books online, sharing texts or simply not buying them at all, but we're glad government and university officials have finally begun to realize there is a problem. This past Wednesday the House voted unanimously in favor of a bill airing to make buying textbooks more affordable. The bill would require state universities to provide textbook information to students at least 30 days before the first day of .classes. And the recent announcement that UF will begin placing stricter requirements on faculty who receive royalties from textbooks sold to their own students is definitely a step in the right direction. While some professors show compassion for students paying the cost of higher education by requiring a limited number of textbooks and merely suggesting supplements, others seems to anticipate profiting off of a large captive audience -students taking a required course. It's more than unfair that those who choose the books we must buy carelessly disregard the reality of living on a budget. The fact that some avaricious professors continue to pull in an enormous profit from requiring books that they've authored -even if those are not necessarily the best materials or even the most cost effective -is also not anything new on college campuses. It's one thing to be exploited by the $3.4 billion-a-year higher-education publishing industry, but it's another to know that the money you hand over at the checkout counter will inevitably end up in your professor's back pocket. While the UF measure will hopefully keep an eye on professors who are exploiting the very students they are supposed to be instructing, we're worried that it may be a little too lenient. Professors who require students to purchase their textbooks would have to provide evidence that there is a "reasonable likelihood" that more than 50 percent of their profits will be from customers other than UF students in two years. They would also have to show that the book is sold at a fair price and is of satisfactory academic quality. But the main problem we have is that the policy does not specify any penalty if a textbook doesn't reach the target for outside sales in the time required. Though the provost would be empowered to approve or disapprove of a faculty member who frequently receives profits, we're wondering why it was only left up to one person to make that decision. Perhaps it would be a better idea to allow a committee to annually review professors who receive royalties, evaluate the materials they have chosen and decide whether they are taking advantage of their position. We appreciate any concern UF shows for students struggling to pay for textbooks amid the rising cost of college, but it's important to make sure these institutional measures don't amount to empty promises. 0 the indeed d ent florida alligator Chad Smith EDITOR Devin Culclasure MANAGING EDITOR Panagiota Papakos OPINIONS EDITOR Don Kershaw Leigh Shapiro EDITORIAL BOARD The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

SDS thinks globally and acts locally The Alligator's accusation that Students for a Democratic Society are hunger striking for personal glory is unfounded. I don't recall this line of reasoning when students at the University of Miami struck for janitors to get a recognized union last year. You listed historical hunger strikes which you implied were more noble, but SDS is fighting to get the University of Florida to reveal its investments so that the school's monies don't go to corporations that engage in child labor, gross environmental destruction and other dubious practices that they would rather keep quiet. SDS's goal is to provide a negative economic consequence to those corporations: they're thinking globally and acting locally. You might call their methods extreme, but in our experience UF traditionally ignores reasoned pleas unless accompanied by direct action. Deeb Kitchen and Bret Seferian Graduate Assistants United co-presidents Coverage should focus on the issues It strikes me as odd that the Alligator Editorial Board consistently emphasizes the "problems" with SDS' protest tactics, as opposed to emphasizing and exploring the actual social problems that SDS is trying to address. Whether or not someone agrees or disagrees with the way SDS goes about doing its activism, I would think most people would agree that their causes are noble, especially if students were able to find out more about them. To me, that should be the focus of the Alligator's editorials, since it is the responsibility of "independent" university media like the Alligator to examine the issues in our society that the mainstream American media will not cover. Instead, we as students are constantly inundated with the Alligator Editorial Board's personal attacks against the character of SDS members. I, for one, am not really feeling the Alligator's Editorial Board becoming a surrogate father figure whose energies (and ink) seem to be constantly spent scolding campus activists. David Reznik sociology Ph.D. candidate UF should adopt responsible investing Both the Alligator and the UF student body support establishing a committee on socially responsible investment (SRI) to align the endowment with UF's mission and values. This is a great idea. By adopting such a committee, UF would join with 24 other schools around the country including 16 of the top 20 (according to U.S. News and World Report) that have chosen to apply SRI strategies to their endowments. These schools represent over $112 billion in combined endowment assets and have proven SRI does not adversely affect the bottom line. How can schools use SRI without hurting their investments? By engaging in shareholder advocacy, divesting when appropriate, engaging in positive investing in companies that exemplify good environmental, social, and governance practices, and by remaining accountable to their communities with town halls for students to bring forward their concems. Nowhere are they required to release their portfolios to the public daily or to severely limit their investments. Most schools release holdings only with a six-month time lag, and most do not engage in screening investments. A UF committee could easily adopt such practices. I encourage students, faculty, and staff to support the UF Responsible Endowments Coalition as it continues to lobby for an SRI conunittee. The administration has the information it needs and the students have spoken. It's time for the administration to act. Cheyenna Weber Responsible Endowments Coalition organizing director MONDAY, APRIL 21, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 7 Voters must decide on best candidate I am disappointed that the Alligator would publish the blatantly slanted article by Drew Harwell on the upcoming congressional election for District 6. Mr. Harwell seems a bit disappointed that the congressman would vote for Republican positions 90.8 percent of the time. Last I checked, Congressman Stearns is a Republican and a very principled one at that. I don't see what the shock is here. Instead of throwing out statistics, check your facts. The fact of the matter is that a good look at the congressman's record shows that he has worked diligently and consistently for the local community. He funneled large sums of money to support UF research projects, worked to improve conditions at the VA hospital and for veterans, and he has been very responsive to the isolated rural communities of this area. He is also reputed for strong fiscal responsibility and family values. So much for your "ultra-conservative moneyed interests." I am a strong Stearns supporter; however, I respect Mr. Cunha's bid to run for office. It is an admirable sign of civic engagement and democracy. I hope that the best man will win. As for the Alligator, I say let the people decide and stop publishing articles that make the decisions for them.

8, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, APRIL 21, 2008 ENVIRON ENTALAF rys Groups start Earth Day festivities early with concert By KRISTEN HUFF Alligator Contributing Writer Local green-minded organizations hosted a concert on Sunday to raise awareness about environmental sustainability two days before Earth Day. UF's Student Leadership Convergence, which is made up of six UF organizations, hosted the 2008 Earth Day Music Festival on the Alachua County Fairgrounds. The event featured 11 bands from Gainesville and Jacksonville, with Chris McCarty as headliner. About 200 people attended the festival and all the bands except the headliner played for free. "This could be the beginning of something really big -think Harrison Diamond / Alligator Starr Chris McCarty performs at the Earth Day Music Festival at the Alachua County Fairgrounds on Sunday night. Woodstock," said Mark van Soestbergen, coordinator of the International Carbon Bank and Exchange, a group that tracks greenhouse gas emissions. Gators for a Sustainable Campus, one of the groups that co-hosted the event, arranged free bus rides to cut down on emissions, provided environmentally friendly cups made of corn, and said they would donate all proceeds to the Alachua Conservation Trust. To offset the emissions produced by the concert, group members will be planting a tree and giving away saplings on the Reitz Union North Lawn on Tuesday. "This could be the beginning of something really big -think Woodstock." Mark van Soestbergen International Carbon Bank and Exchange coordinator Southern Alliance for Clean Energy had a display table set up to teach music lovers about cleanenergy practices. Fans could take information pamphlets, sign petitions to senators and get advice on how to write effectively to politicians. "It's all about solutions and taking action," said Abhaya Thiele, the Florida federal coordinator of the organization. On stage, the bands were open about their commitment to sustainability. Most made reference to loving the Earth.

10, ALLIGATOR N MONDAY, APRIL 21,2008 Alachua Hare Krishna community includes schools, 750-member temple KRISHNA, from page 1 time crowds grew to about 70 people a day, they decided to take the food to the Plaza. They continued to serve there until the late 1970s, when the university ordered the Krishnas to comply with certain health codes, which the Krishnas said were impossible. When Parama's father continued to serve the food, he was arrested. But the case against the Krishnas didn't hold up in court, said Kalakantha Das, the current president of the Gainesville Krishna House. "The judge said, 'Let the Krishnas have their picnic,"' Kalakantha said. "It's part of our religious expression." In 1977, land was purchased in the city of Alachua by Gainesville Krishnas with the idea of creating a sustainable agrarian community, said Chaturatma, president of the Krishna temple there. Today, Gainesville's Krishna population is small compared to the 750-persoh Alachua compound. As Krishnas married and started families in the 1980s, the focus of the compound changed from farming to education. The community is now centered around a temple and two schools -a Krishna day school and an Alachua County charter school staffed mostly by Krishnas. Following Krishna Though food is spiritually important for Krishnas, there's more to their religion than eating lentil soup and subji. All devotees chant Krishna's name many times a day as meditation, Kalakantha said. In addition, Krishnas are vegetarians and practice celibacy until marriage. They believe in karma, and remain free from intoxicants -including caffeine, alcohol and material possessions. Each Sunday, local Krishnas gather at the temple in Alachua, a bright, tiled room with open glass doors along either side. They start by performing arotik, a service in which they make offerings to Krishna of fruit, flowers and incense. Sara Hsu / Alligator Hare Krishnas watch their leader light a candle during a worship service Saturday afternoon at New Raman Reti, the Hare Krishna temple in Alachua. Congregants bring up offerings and place them in a basket before nine glittering statues of Krishna and his companion, Radha, as women in saris and men in loose robes dance barefoot, chant and beat on drums. "Some people are like, 'I need a cigarette. I'm like, 'I need to chant more rounds."' Trey Rapczak Gainesville resident The service is followed by a lesson on the Bhagavad-Gita, the Krishnas' holy book, and prasadam, a shared outdoor meal similar to the one on the Plaza. On holy days, the temple in Alachua serves people from as far away as Jacksonville and Orlando, Chaturatma said. People travel from all over the country to be a part of the Alachua community, he said. Members come from about 15 nationalities and speak about seven languages. "The traditional sense of being a Krishna is give up everything, move into a temple, and that was your life," Chaturatma said. Now, he said, Krishnas pursue careers as doctors or lawyers, he said. Lieberman's father, still a Hare Krishna, now works as a First Amendment lawyer in California. "That guy that delivers your UPS package could very well be a Hare Krishna guy," Chaturatma said. Developing Relationships Eating lunch on the Plaza is the firstplace many devotees started to explore Krishnaism, as it was for Andres Salim, a UF biology junior. Now a follower for more than two years, Salim was looking for religion. "I think I'm the classic UF student, to be honest," he said. "I was fine, but you start to realize there's more than just studying all the time and partying all the time. There's no peace in that." Sallm's family was open-minded about his choice, he said, but not everyone is. Trey Rapczak, a Gainesville resident, said his mother wasn't pleased when he became interested in Krishnaism a year and a half ago. She finally kicked him out after one argument too many. "I was supposed to clean my house," Rapczak said, "but for hours, I was offering things up to Krishna." But Rapczak said he doesn't regret his decision. "Some people are like, 'I need a cigarette,"' he said. "I'm like, 'I need to chant more rounds."' But before he became a devotee, Rapczak said he had small hesitation. "Right before I started chanting, I was like, 'Oh, what will everyone think?"' he said. People's reactions to Krishnas are not always positive. Lieberman said that while chanting on the corner of 13th Street and University Avenue, he's received foul words and hand gestures. But the Gainesville area, as a whole, he said, has been welcoming. "When I would walk around at least the student area in my robes, I'd never get any negative remark," he said. The good relationship Krishnas have with the Gainesville community probably has something to do with the food they've distributed there for so long, he said. But Chaturatma said he sees something more spiritual at work. According to Krishna teaching, he said, certain places are home to unusually large pockets of positive energy. "My guess is that something like that exists in Gainesville," he said. "Otherwise you'd say, 'Why here?"

MONDAY, APRIL 21, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 11 Festival celebrates black culture E SOME VENDORS CAME FROM CENTRAL AND WESTERN AFRICA,By DAYNA MALEK Alligator Contributing Writer The smells of kettle corn and Jamaican jerk chicken filled the air over the weekend as local residents and visitors flocked to the 29th annual Fifth Avenue Arts Festival. The festival, put on by the Cultural Arts Coalition, is held every year on Northwest Sixth Street to showcase black culture in the community. Vendors, some from as far as Central and Westem Africa, lined the street selling clothing, jewelry and more, and reggae music artists performed. "The purpose is to celebrate African and African-American culture and encourage appreciation of the heritage," said LaShanta Harris, a volunteer with the Cultural Arts Coalition. The festival, which used to be held in May to coincide with Malcolm X's birthday, was moved to April last year and was expanded to include Earth Day. "It helps bring a higher purpose to the event," Harris said. "A lot of our African traditions involve the Earth, so it is very fitting to combine the two." Nkwanda Jah, director of the Cultural Arts Coalition and a founder of the festival, said the festival is still developing. Still, some residents, like Laura Predny, come to the festival every year. Fredny, who lives in the neighborhood where the festival is held, said it's a nice representation of people and shows. the diversity in the community. "It has really good entertainment," she said. "It will probably keep me up all night." Howard Lewis said this was his first time attending the festival. Lewis, a performing artist and teacher from St. Augustine who goes by the name of Xhabbo, sat alongside the vendors' booths and slowly banged on an old African drum known as a djembe. Xhabbo said the festival is a way to draw people together. "This will give the young people the ability to experience people from other countries," he said. "It brings generations together." /Ajibola, an artist, hangs up a noon at the 29th annual Fifth Sara Hsu / Alligator basket in his African art booth Sunday afterAvenue Arts Festival in downtown Gainesville.

12, ALLIGATOR S MONDAY, APRIL 21,2008 ." pynghted'Mat ial'"* Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" Others also co FOUKE, from page 1 Workman, provost at the University of North Florida. In a phone interview Sunday, Fouke said she wouldn't elaborate on her comment. In an e-mail to the Alligator shortly after the announcement in March, Fouke wrote that the new provost position would be "quite different" than the position she held, and Machen should "try to fill the new job with aperson with a skill set that matches that new job." Fouke said that she has yet to isidering Fouke speak with anyone from LSU. "This search is so preliminary it's not worthy of comment," she wrote in an e-mail. "Several search firms have solicited UF my resume," Administration she added, though she wouldn't reveal names of institutions. She said LSU's search committee would likely have 50 to 100 candidates before it started seriously considering contenders. An LSU spokesman couldn't be reached for comment by press time. Nearly 4,400 didn't receive message TEXT, from page 1 17 minutes, according to an e-mail to Orlando from Marc Hoit, UF's interim chief information officer.'A notice of the test on UF's Web page was posted within four minutes of the notification, Orlando said, and an update with more information went up about 35 minutes later. UF also tested its automated-telephonemessage system called a reverse-911 call. The service dials landlines and cell phones of students living in residence halls and leaves a message detailing an emergency situation and how to respond. Occupants in Broward and Rawlings residence halls and Rinker Hall were chosen to receive the test voice messages. Orlando said recipients were asked to confirm if they understood the message by pushing a button, but many didn't wait for the message to play out. Out of 770 calls made to phones in the area, 567 voicemails and 120 hang-ups were registered in just over 7 minutes -a 93 percent success rate, said Kenneth Allen, emergency management coordinator. Fifteen minutes later, UPD expanded the area's radius by 700 feet to include more buildings and people, simulating a real Public active-shooter scenario. Of 1,100 Safety calls placed, 725 voicemails, 191 hang-ups and 61 confirmations were made over a 10-minute period, Allen said. The expanded run was 89 percent successful. Some messages were not left because of incorrect cell phone numbers and busy signals, Allen said. He said he is pleased with the numbers, but he would have liked to see more people answer their phones. Advertise in the country's largest college newspaper.

Sports MONDAY, APRIL 21,2008 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF sweeps UK to keep streak alive E JUNIOR STACEY NELSON PITCHED TWO ONE-HITTERS IN THREE GAMES. By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Writer kmaistri@alligatr.org The finish line is starting to come into focus. Riding the longestwinning streak inschoolhistory --24 games -No. 3 UF (51-2,21-1 Southeastern Conference) completed a sweep of Kentucky (16-31, 3-19 SEC) at Pressly Stadium on Sunday "It's always fun," senior Mary Ratliff said of playing the Wildcats. "Anytime you beat a good SEC opponent, it's good for us." The Gators have proven to be better than good this season, using Sunday's 8-0 blowout to set the school record for most wins in a season, breaking the previous mark set by last year's team, which finished 50-22. UP is in lme to take home the second regularseason SEC tide in history, holding a sllm one-game lead over No. 1 Alabama (44-3,23-2 SEC). While making history within the conference is a big step for the Gators, coach Tun Walton has not lost track of the lofty goal the team has had all year. "We stillhave the same goal, to get to the College World Series," he said. "If we win the SEC along the way, if we accomplish hosting a regional, super regional along the way, great. But right now we're still focused on getting to the College World Series and figuring out how to be the best every game to get to that goal." Trotting out junior Stacey Nelson to the circle is usually enough to make the Gators the best team on the field in every game. The heart and soul of UF's team ran her record to 33-2 after pitching her second complete game -a mercy-rule-shortened five-inning affair -and one-hitter of the weekend in the final matchup of the three-game series. Junior Ali Gardiner led the way for the offense, going 2 for 4, scoring one run and driving in four, Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff including a three-run double to end the game in the UF pitcher Stacey Nelson hurls a pitch during the Gators' 6-1 win SEE SOFT, PAGE 22 against LSU at Pressly Stadium on March 29. UF WOMEN'S TENNIS No. 5 Gators upset in conference final By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC Alligator Writer cyazbec@alligator.org It was like d6ja vu for UF on Sunday. Facing second seeded and No. 8 Georgia (20-4) for the second consecutive year in the SEC Tournament Championship, the No. 5 Gators (20-2) fell victim to the Bulldogs once again, this time 4-3. Georgia won 4-2 in last year's final.

"The difference between the two teams (Sunday) was not that great, obviously, judging by the score." No. 1seed UF, which faced one of the most challenging draws for a top seed in tournament history, was unable to complete the come-from-behind victory, losing the final court by one break of serve in a third set.

It's the exact moment that tells the person, this is why you chose to become a reporter. For me, that moment happened in Atlanta at the 2007 Final Four. After the buzzer sounded in the Georgia Dome and the Gators clinched their second title, chaos ensued on the court. As I stood on the sideline with my notepad and tape recorder and brushed off the orange, blue, yellow and white streamers that fell from the ceiling, Corey Brewer jumped on top of the scorer's table. Al Horford and Taurean Green danced at center court. Chris Richard Jenna Marina hoisted Walter Floor Jenna-ral Hodge into the air, jmarina@asIigator.org but I focused on none of that. Instead, my eyes became transfixed on Joakim Noah as he ran into the stands and frantically climbed the steps searching forhis mother. He almost ran by her, but when she reached out for him, he gripped on to her so tight that she actually shook. As I watched him bury his head into her right shoulder, I saw everything he felt. The past several months culminated in that embrace. All the sweat, the sprints and the judgment were worth it because now he was a champion, again. Years from now, I can't say I will remember how many miles I put -on my Nissan Sentra while driving around the Southeastern Conference. I don't know if I will be able to tell you how many 3-pointers Lee Humphrey swished or at what minute Chris Richard fouled out of the title game. But I will always remember that moment because it's those moments that make my job have meaning. And if it wasn't for the people I'm about to mention; I wouldn't have had this job at all.

22, ALLIGATOR S MONDAY, APRIL 21, 2008 UF drops series to Kentucky Toledo walks in winning run By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Staff Writer edrexler@alligator.org Until the last pitch of the series, it was impossible to tell whether UF or No. 25 Kentucky was the better baseball team. But with a 3-1 count in the bottom of the 10th inning, the answer finally showed itself: Kentucky, by 90 feet. After a leadoff double from Wildcats left fielder Keenan Wiley, Collin Cowgill reached on a bunt and Sawyer Carroll got to first with an intentional walk. UF freshman Tommy Toledo then walked home the winning run, giving some closure to an upand-down weekend. Despite a quality outing from starter Stephen Locke, the Gators could not-get their offense going enough to pass the Wildcats and fell 3-2 in-~6xington on Sunday The Gators (25-15, 10-8 Southeastern Conference) lost the first game of the series Friday, 117, but got out to an early lead and held it to win 13-7 on Saturday. The losses mark UF's third straight conference-series defeat. Interestingly, because of the Gators' travel schedule, the teams agreed to have no new innings begin after 4 p.m. If Toledo managed to escape the 10th, the game would have ended in a 2-2 tie. At the plate, UF couldn't break through against UK's Greg Dombrowski until the top of the sixth inning. Left fielder Avery Barnes singled through the left side, and center fielder Matt den Dekker smacked his second home run of the weekend to right field, tying the game at 2-2. "I thought den Baseball Dekker's home run gave us a lift," UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan said. "The defense was very good; we just couldn't stretch anything more offensively. .Offensively, we just didn't get it done today" But den Dekker's shot was all the Gators could do against the Wildcats. UF's five-through-nine hitters walked away from the plate empty-handed. "We had a couple situations where we let balls go down the middle of the plate that we could have taken good swings at," O'Sullivan said. The Gators got a great start from Locke, who went 6 2/3 innings with eight strikeouts. Toledo (4-4), who usually starts on Sundays, came out of the bullpen to strike out Cowgill and pitched a scoreless eighth and ninth inning before collapsing in the 10th. Cowgill got things started in the bottom of the first inning with a home run to left field. On Saturday, UF got five hits, three RBIs and three runs from Bames. He leads the team with a .389 batting average and was 9 for 16 on the weekend. Starter Patrick Keating (7-0, 2.68 ERA) improved on his perfect record, allowing three runs in six innings. UF scored more than 10 runs for the first time since an 11-10 extra-innings loss to North Florida on April 2. Saturday's game lasted four hours and 20 minutes. First baseman Brandon McArthur got a start on both Friday and Saturday, hitting 5 for 9 with two RBIs. The weekend marked his first action since rupturing 'his anterior cruciate ligament in that same April 2 game against the Ospreys. Friday, the Gators took a 7-6 lead in the seventh off a two-run homer by den Dekker, but UF's bullpen couldn't hold the lead. A radio broadcast contributed to this report.

"I had to make an adjustment, because I hit the ball opposite field, and they pitch me away, away, away," Gardiner said of her line-drive double down the right-field line. Saturday, Nelson started the first game of the doubleheader, allowing only two base runners on the way to an 8-0 victory. The All-American ace has often held opponents to one hit in a game, but a no-hitter has been the one elusive accomplishment of an otherwise tremendous career. "One-hitters are so much cooler," she said, brushing off the importance of a no-hitter. In the second game Saturday, the Gators ed out to a 6-1 lead in the fourth inningbut narrowly escaped with the win. Freshman Stephanie Brombacher ran into trouble in the sixth inning when she allowed Brombacher Kentucky to score four eamed runs, cutting the lead to one. Walton pulled Brombacher in favor of Nelson with one out in the inning, ultimately preserving Brombacher's undefeated record, 16-0, and a 6-5 UF win. "Amazingly enough, I don't get that nervous this year," Ratliff said of watching the Wildcats' comeback. "We got Stacey Nelson in the bullpen at all times to come in and close it out." The save was the fourth of the season for Nelson, who lowered her ERA to a paltry 0.71 after the three-game set. After the series, Gardiner pointed to the team's defense when asked what she thought the team did particularly well over the weekend. UF was error-free on the series. "Finally, 54 games into the season, we're there," she said. "We're where we should've been two games into the season, and it feels good." I

UF failed to lose a doubles match the entire tournament and has not lost the doubles point all season. Freshman Julia Cohen fell 6-2, 6-1 to tie the match before senior Lolita Frangulyan put the Gators back on top 2-1 with her 6-1, 6-2 win. Senior Whitney Benik lost her second match in as many days, 6-2, 6-4, after snapping her 15match win streak Saturday. With the score tied at 2, sophomore Csilla Borsanyi came up short 6-4, 6-4 to put Georgia ahead for the first time. "We were clearly better than they were in doubles, but we got off to a slow, slow start in singles," Thornqvist said. "We were outplayed today. That's just the bottom line."

Revzina tied the score at 3 with a 2-6, 7-6 (8-6), 6-3 victory, leaving Boonstra's match to decide the outcome. "We were outplayed today. That's just the bottom line." Roland Thornqvist UF women's tennis coach Tied at 4-4 in the final set, Boonstra was broken by her op-. ponent, who then served out the match, 6-4, 6-7 (3), -6-4, ending UF's bid for a tournament title and its 17-match winning streak. "That situation is something everybody's gonna be in every now and then in their career, and that was Marrit's first," Thornqvist said. "And obviously we're gonna be better off from this experience, even though I know she''s terribly disappointed now. "But she's gonna be better off next time she's in that spot." UF swept No. 30 Auburn, the host team, 4-0 on Friday in the quarterfinal match on three straight-set singles victories. The Tigers were the Gators' closest win during the regular season. Saturday's semifinal match against fourth-seeded No. 12 Vanderbilt was tied at 2-2 and up for grabs when UF responded with two late second-set comebacks to win 4-2. Up 2-0, the Gators faced straight-set losses by Benik and Cohen. Then Frangulyan battled from down a break in the second set to win her match, 6-2, 7-5. Borsanyi did the same An a 6-3, 6-4 win that clinched the match and secured UF's spot in the final.

24 ALLIGATOR 0 MONDAY, APRIL 21,2008 Women's golf team takes SEC title UF's run ends in SEC finals By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC Alligator Writer cyazbec@alligator.org The UF men's tennis team couldn't quite pull off the improbable on Sunday. After advancing all the way to the Southeastern Conference Tournament final following its upset of top-seeded Georgia on Saturday, the No. 12 Gators (15-7) didn't have enough to defeat second-seeded and sixth-ranked Mississippi (21-4) in the final and fell 4-1. "Anytime you play at that level two days in a row, it's very demanding, but Ole Miss had to do the same thing," UF coach Andy Jackson said. "I think the difference in the match today was Ole Miss was a superior team on the day and more experienced. We played well, just not good enough to handle another top-five team."' The fourth-seeded Gators trounced the Rebels 5-2 on the road earlier this season, and UF found itself in a similar position to that Tennis match early. The Gators dropped the doubles point 8-4 and 8-4 to trail 1-0 as it did in the teams' first meeting. In that match, UF rebounded from losing the doubles point by winning five of six singles matches. This time was a different story. Mississippi extended its lead to 2-0 before senior Nestor Briceno put UF on the board with a 6-3, 6-2 win. Briceno won all three of his matches and failed to lose a set in the tournament. Freshman Tyler Hochwalt was unable to force a third set in his match and fell 7-5, 6-3, and senior Greg Ouellette's 6-4, 6-2 loss clinched the title for the Rebels, who ended the Gators' tournament run for the third year in a row. "Our team showed a lot of progress at this tourmnament," Jackson said. "They played very good matches, and today we fought very hard. I'm very proud of what the team was able to show." But it was a bit of a surprise for the Gators to even be in Sunday's match. UF upset No. 3 Georgia 4-2 in a semifinal match on Saturday The defending national champion Bulldogs had won the previous two SEC Tournament titles. The Gators ended a four-match losing streak to the Bulldogs, including a 5-2 loss at home earlier this year. By ANDY HUTCHINS Alligator Writer It had been 13 years since the UF's women's golf team found itself in the Southeastern Conference's victory lane. So Sunday's drive, with the Gators nearly lapping the field to get there, was especially sweet. "It's about time," coach Jill Briles-Hinton said. Her No. 5 Gators fired the only under-par round of the SEC Championship on Sunday, a four-under 284, en route to the eighth SEC title in program history. UF paced the field on all three days of the weekend, tying with Arkansas at nine-over 297 on Friday, and shooting a five-over 293 on Saturday to take a five shot lead over the Razorbacks heading into the final round. Sunday's performance saw that edge swell to a seventeenshot cushion, as the Gators finished at ten-over, barely within shouting distance of second-place Arkansas. "It was pretty dose at the beginning," Briles-Hinton said, "but we were able to put an exclamation point on it." UF punctuated the program's first conference title under Briles-Hinton with a barrage of 18 final-round birdies. No player had fewer than three birdies in her final round, with senior Whitney Myers recording five tweeters and freshman Jessica Yadloczky contributing four on the way to their threeunder 69s. "It was pretty close at the beginning, but we were able to put an exclamation point on it." Jill Briles-Hinton UF women's golf coach Those scores matched the tournament-low 69 defending NCAA champion Stacy Lewis posted Friday, but while Myers and Yadloczky couldn't catch the Arkansas star, the Gator without a driver's license nearly had Lewis eating her dust. Freshman Hannah Yun, who turned 16 last Sunday, carded an even-par 72 on Sunday to finish just one shot behind Lewis, alone in second place at one-under for the weekend. The duo played together on Sunday, and though Yun tied for the lead after her birdie and a Lewis bogey on the par-5 14th, herbogey on the l6thcost the freshman a share of the individual championship. Still, the SEC title is quite a birthday present, and Yun was happy to help a team full of veterans finally make it to the mountaintop. "They've been through so much," Yun said, referring to the departure of senior Sandra Gal for the LPGA this year and a frustrating run of postseason disappointment. Briles-Hinton was quick to point to her team's drive and effort up and down the roster. "It's not about Hannah; it's about the team," she said. Senior Tiffany Chudy, one of the cornerstones of the team, agreed. "It changes [things] when you know you have five players who could be on top," Chudy said. "Even when one of us isn't going low, like I did (Sunday), everyone else still can." Chudy's four-over 76 on Sunday dropped her from a tie Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff UF freshman golfer Hannah Yun shot even par Sunday to finish in second place at the SEC Championship.

Four players, from Yun at second to Yadloczky at 12th, finished in the top 12 for the Gators, and the team's 284 was the fourth-best round in UF history. "To come out and do that," Chudy said, "we're just thrilled." The Gators will next play May 8th at NCAA Regionals, the site of which has yet to be determined. UF's men's team also competed in its SEC Championship this weekend, in St. Simons Island, Ga. The No.7 Gators finished fourth at eight-over parbut were nineteen shots off the pace of champion and No. 2 Alabama and ten shots behind third-place South Carolina. "It was a disappointing day for us," coach Buddy Alexander said. "We got off to a poor start and did not putt very well today. I thought we didn't respond well like we could have." The men's team awaits a bid to an NCAA Regional, which would begin on May 15th. Ii
