Machen announces $47M


n budget cuts


More than 400 faculty, staff positions cut


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Staff Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

UF President Bernie Machen an-
nounced long-awaited and already
controversial plans to slash the
university's budget by $47 million
to cope with state revenue shortfalls
last week.


About 430 faculty and staff po-
sitions will be cut under Machen's
proposal, resulting in about 20 fac-
ulty and 118 staff layoffs.
About 290 of the faculty and
staff positions were vacant positions
from each college, and some posi-
tions will be funded by other money
instead of state dollars. No tenured
faculty will be laid off.


Plans to lower enrollment by
1,000 students each year for the next
four years were also released. The
number of transfer students UF in-
vited for the upcoming fall semester
was reduced by one-third, or 1,000
students.
All colleges and administrative
units were instructed by Machen to
prepare their budgets for a 6 percent


cut. Machen said
he left most of the
budget decisions
to the deans and
vice presidents,
but he said he
did send some
proposals back
Machen for reworking.
The $47 mil-
lion cut, in addition to the $22 mil-
lion crunch UF absorbed in October,
makes UF's general revenue budget


$69 million less than last year's.
The proposals will be voted on by
UF's Board of Trustees, UF's highest
governing body, during a telephone
conference Wednesday morning.
UF's security programs and
libraries were spared from the
cuts. Machen said in a May 5 news
conference that protecting campus-
security initiatives was an obvious
decision in light of recent U.S. col-

Joseph Glover, interim dean of the College
of Liberal Arts and Sciences, will become UF's
provost on July 1.
Glover will replace Janie Fouke, who an-
nounced her resignation in March.
Glover, whose promotion was announced
May 2, signed a three-year contract as provost
and will receive $300,000 a year, according to a
UF news release.
UF President Bernie Machen touted
Glover's more than 25-year history at UF and
familiarity with the state's budget in a May 2

him for the position instead of conducting a

Officials look into pollution


* SEN. BILL NELSON MET WITH
LOCAL LEADERS ON MONDAY.

By CHRISTOPHER MYERS
Alligator Contributing Writer

For 25 years, Gainesville has been trying
to clean up industrial contamination at the
Cabot Carbon/Koppers Superfund Site.
The site, located at Northwest 23rd
Avenue just west of Main Street, received
attention from the Environmental Protection
Agency on Monday.
Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., met with officials
from Gainesville, Alachua County and the
EPA to discuss plans to clean up the most
polluted place in Gainesville.
The site was designated a Superfund site
in 1983, when it was determined that indus-


trial contamination had impacted soil and
groundwater.
The Superfund is an agreement chemical
companies made that, in exchange for hav-
ing no liability, requires them to pay an an-
nual fee into the Superfund, Nelson said.
The fund is then used to clean up various
contaminated sites, he said.
Since then, the
EnVironhiental level of contamination
Issues has been determined
to be worse than ini-
tially thought, resulting in the EPA commit-
tee deeming the original clean-up plan inef-
fective, according to the site's 2006 five-year
renewal plan.
"It will be very important that that con-

CLAS faculty upset as college bears brunt of layoffs


* COLLEGE ALSO FACES LOSS OF
SEVERAL ACADEMIC PROGRAMS.

By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Contributing Writer

To meet its share of a $47 million bud-
get cut, UF's College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences will reduce its foreign language of-
ferings, lay off more than 30 faculty and staff
and eliminate three Ph.D. programs.
The $5.97 million cut amounts to 6 per-
cent of CLAS'budget. The Board of Trustees,
UF's highest governing body, will vote on
the budget proposal Wednesday morning.
The 6 percent cut has to be taken by July
1, which is the same day Paul D'Anieri,
currently a University of Kansas official,
becomes the college's new dean.
Every UF unit is also shouldering a 6
percent budget cut, but CLAS' share is the
second-largest dollar amount and carries the
greatest faculty cost - nearly 80 percent of
UF's faculty layoffs come from CLAS.
The faculty layoffs stem mostly from the
closing of the Korean and Vietnamese lan-
guage programs and the Ph.D. programs in
philosophy, French and German.
All of the Ph.D. students as of fall 2008
- about 27 in philosophy and nearly 30 in
French and German - will be allowed to fin-
ish their degrees.
CLAS will also combine the criminol-
ogy department with sociology, merge three


foreign language departments into two, and
combine the zoology, botany and biology
teaching departments to save administra-
tive costs.
As news of the budget cuts traveled
around the university last week, CLAS
faculty and students criticized Joe Glover,
interim dean and soon-to-be provost, for
using limited faculty input in the decisions,
targeting the humanities and languages, and
lowering UF's faculty diversity.
"If the interim dean had been a physi-
cian, in my opinion, he'd be charged with
malpractice," said Chris Snodgrass, a
UF English professor, at a Faculty Senate
Steering Committee meeting on Thursday.
But UF President Bernie Machen said at
the meeting that he was not convinced of
any wrongdoing, and Glover continues to
defend his decisions.
"I'm very sympathetic to all of these is-
sues, but I think that we had to simply do it
on the basis of what's best for the students
and what's best for the university," Glover
said.
He said he asked the college's Faculty
Finance Committee and Faculty Council
to advise him on how to meet a 6 percent
budget cut. However, both groups submit-i
ted proposals that only covered $2 million
or $3 million, he said. With these recom-
mendations in hand, Glover said he made
his decisions based on which programs had
"less productivity per dollar."


But Robert D'Amico, chair of the philoso-
phy department, said he doesn't understand
how Glover thinks his Ph.D. program is
unproductive.
D'Amico said his faculty members have
published nine books and about 150 journal
articles in the last two years.
If UF eliminates its Ph.D. in philosophy, it
would be one of fewer than 10 institutions in
its peer group, the Association of American
Universities, that doesn't offer a doctorate
degree in philosophy.
"If the interim dean had been a
physician, in my opinion, he'd be
charged with malpractice."
Chris Snodgrass
UF English professor

Because the current Ph.D. students in
philosophy, French and German will be al-
lowed to finish their degrees, UF will not see
immediate savings.
The same issue arises with faculty lay-
offs. Because most faculty are entitled to one
year's notice of a layoff, they will still teach
and draw salaries-for the next school year.
Glover said Machen will decide how to
cover the budget difference while faculty
members remain at UF for the next year.
As for the Ph.D. programs, the savings
are still large because the programs' operat-
ing budgets will shrink as no new students
are admitted, Glover said.


But some department chairs wonder if
eliminating the programs outright is the
best move.
David Pharies, chair of the Romance lan-
guages and literatures department, which is
losing its Ph.D. program in French, said he
would rather UF tell him to temporarily stop
admitting students. That way, the program's
budget could shrink, and it could remain
competitive until UF's financial situation is
stronger, Pharies said.
Another point of conflict is the proposed
reorganization of language departments,
which combines most of the languages into
one department of "modem foreign lan-
guages" and creates a Spanish language and
literature department.
Will Hasty, Germanic and Slavic studies
department chairman, said he's worried that
the modem languages department will be so
large that it won't get enough support.
"If you've been around the university
for the last few years, one of the big things
that you hear about is internationalization,"
Hasty said. "That all is going to suffer."
Ann Wehmeyer, chair of the African and
Asian languages and literatures department,
said that her main concern right now is her
faculty. Six of her employees are being laid
off, all of whom are women or minorities.
"Kids going to (the University of) Florida
are not all white," she said. "It took 20 years
to build the program. What are they think-
ing?"

UF student found dead in grandmother's home


* FAMILY REMEMBERS UF JUNIOR
FOR HIS LOVE OF LITERATURE.

By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Staff Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

A 25-year-old UF student died May 1 in his
grandmother's Plantation, Fla., home.
The cause of death of Ira Carl Rosenzweig,
a history junior, is still under investigation,
said Ellen Rosenzweig, his mother.
Rosenzweig, called a modem-day "Jimmy
Dean" by his mother, was born Oct. 14,1982.


He died from what his mother believes was
an accidental overdose of a prescription drug.
"He didn't leave any signs as though he
was going to leave the earth that day," she said.
"I know at least he passed without pain."
She said her son battled depression after
the deaths of his girlfriend in February 2007
and his father in October.
He spent the spring semester living with
his grandmother but planned to return to UF
this summer, his mother said. '
Before attending UF, Rosenzweig gradu-
ated from SFCC in December 2005, she said.
He attended high school in Greensboro, N.C.
His mother said her son's goal was to at-


"It's a terrible loss for the world
because Ira had so much to offer."
Ellen Rosenzweig
Ira Rosenzweig's mother

tend Harvard University after earning his
bachelor's degree and become a college his-
tory professor.
He had a love for classic literature and
wrote poems, stories and essays, she said.
He revered writers such as Walt Whitman,
Charles Bukowski and Ernest Hemingway.
His mother said the family plans to publish


more than 700 of his collected poems and short
stories as a tribute to her son.
Services for Rosenzweig were held at his
grandmother's home.
His mother traveled to Asheville, N.C.,
Monday to scatter the ashes of her husband
and son along the countryside.
"We're going to find them a serene, beauti-
ful spot in North Carolina," she said.
She said she hopes her son's death serves
as a "wake-up call" to students who believe
drugs and alcohol can solve their problems.
"His friends called him a genius," she said.
"It's a terrible loss for the world because Ira
had so much to offer."


Locals serve up zucchini to help fund fire department


By ZACH SEYMOUR
Alligator Contributing Writer

The air was hot, the sun was
bright, and the sweet smell of
frying zucchini swept through
the pine trees like a cool breeze
on a muggy southern day.
For the past 24 years, the
town of Windsor, located seven
miles east of Gainesville, has
been transformed by the Windsor
Zucchini Festival for one day
each May to raise money for its
volunteer fire department.
The concept of a small-town
festival to raise money isn't
unique, but choosing to focus on
zucchini is certainly rare.
When asked why zucchini
is the center of the celebration,
"Why not?" was the reply from
Bobbi Walton, the chairperson
of the festival. The crop is grown
near Windsor.
Walton is the self-declared
"head zucchini" of the event.
People call her "Ma," and though
there are no formal elections, her
parking spot reads "Reserved for
the Mayor."
She has been with the festival
since its inception and seems to
be the clock by which everything


runs.
Walton said when the festival
started in 1984, there were so few
, ' t . . _ .. . - _ .. "


people in attendance that they
could have held it in the small
firehouse.


This year, she estimated, thou-
sands came.
Danny Beaulieu, president of


Marianne LiJewskl / Alligator Staff
Belinda Buth pours ranch dressing into a fried zucchini tray for a customer at the Windsor Zucchini Fes-
tival Saturday afternoon.


UF Students for Barack Obama,
came out to sign people up for
the club's listserv.
"We've gotten a really positive
response," Beaulieu said.
The fact that groups come
to reach the festival's large
population is testament to the its
growth.
"It's gotten a lot bigger. The
first year, we had 13 booths, and
this year we have
.. '.,, 74," Walton said.
News "But it's never really
lost that feeling of
a small community
festival."
The day's activities included
the Cook-a-Zuke contest, the
Zucchini Cake Walk and the
Duke of Zuke & Zuqueenie
Pageant.
The festival idea came about
decades ago because the town
could not afford a $1,800-a-year
lease for its firehouse. Nowadays,
she said, the department has to
file taxes because it takes in more
than $30,000, thanks in large part
to the festival.
"Right now we're saving up
for a new truck," she said. "I
think they run about $146,000,
but we're well on our way."

ABC News selects UF for college news program


Four students to work in mini-news bureau


By ELIZABETH LEVA
Alligator Contributing Writer

ABC News has selected UF as
one of five universities across the
nation to participate in the first-ever
"ABC News on Campus" program
this fall.
John Green, an ABC executive
producer, said the program allows
students to gain experience from a


professional journalism organiza-
tion in a mini-news bureau on their
campus.
ABC will provide equipment
such as cameras and computers for
the program, which will be run by
four students from the UF College
of Journalism and Communications
chosen by ABC, Green said.
ABC will publish most of the
student-generated content on the


ABC News Web site, but any story
has a shot at winding up on Good
Morning America or Nightline, he
added.
After researching journalism
programs in universities across the
nation for more than a year, Green
said UF stood out.
"The quality of the students who
showed interest in the program was
unbelievable," he said.


The other schools chosen for
the program are Arizona State
University, Syracuse University,
the University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill and the University of
Texas.
Miles Doran, a
On telecommunications
Campus junior, was selected as
the reporter for next
year. Doran said the positions of
bureau chief, reporter, photographer
and integrated media producer will
receive a combined $10,000 each


semester. And the perks don't stop
there.
The bureau chief of each program
will be sent to New York City twice a
year to train at the ABC News head-
quarters, Doran said.
Mark Leeps, WUFT news direc-
tor, will oversee students in the ABC
newsroom in Weimer Hall and serve
as the liaison between UF and ABC.
"Being able to participate in a
program at the network level right
at UF is a once-in-a-lifetime oppor-
tunity for students," Leeps said.


UF ADMINISTRATION

Med dean offers apologies


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Contributing Writer

The dean of UF's College of Medicine has apolo-
gized for divisive comments he made after his deci-
sion to overrule the admissions committee became
public more than a month ago.
The dean, Dr. Bruce Kone, continues to defend
the student's credentials while UF tries to find who
leaked the student's name to the media.
In April, Kone admitted Benjamin Mendelsohn,
the son of a major Republican contributor, into UF's
medical school despite the student's rejection by
the admissions committee. On April 4, the day after
Kone's decision made the news, he met with UF offi-
cials. Later that day, he sent them what he now deems
a "hurtful e-mail."
In the e-mail, he criticized their response to the sit-
uation and wrote, "It's a small town. There are small
minds. But for crap's sakes, and speaking strictly as an
alumnus, wake up. You are talented. Start leading."
On May 6, Kone apologized for the comments at
a College of Medicine Faculty Council meeting. He
summarized his apology in an e-mail sent afterward.
"It was disrespectful and demeaning to our lead-
ers, our university and our community, and it was just
plain wrong," he wrote of his earlier comments.
For the first time, Kone also described


Mendelsohn's qualifications, including an SAT score
of 1535 and a record of civic service, in the e-mail.
Privacy laws kept Kone from going into more de-
tail and were supposed to keep Mendelsohn's name
from getting out into the media, but several anony-
mous members of the school's selections committee
identified Mendelsohn in news reports and said he
had not taken the MCAT.
"It was disrespectful and demeaning to
our leaders, our university and our com-
munity, and it was just plain wrong."
Dr. Bruce Kone
dean of uf's college of medicine


Janine Sikes, UF spokeswoman, said UF's privacy
officer has mounted an investigation to learn which
committee members may have violated federal pri-
vacy laws by sharing that information.
Sikes said the investigation has consisted of inter-
views with about 30 of the 50 committee members,
including some students. Faculty e-mails are public
record, but student e-mails are generally private. UF's
Acceptable Use Policy states that it can look through
a student's e-mail account if that student may have
broken any laws.


No vote on BOG bill


Florida's Board of Governors
will continue to preside over the
state's 11 public universities in
its current stricture despite a
surge of support for a plan aim-
ing to establish a new system
with a limited board.
After soaring through the
state Senate in March, sup-
port for a bill that would have
reduced the number of mem-
bers on the board, the State
University System's highest
governing body, from 17 to
eight died in the House of
Representatives.
If passed, the bill would
have also made the state edu-
cation commissioner an elected
position.
Bill Edmonds, the board's
spokesman, said the board is
thankful that the House took
its time in weighing out the


issue. "We're hopeful that the
Legislature will continue in the
spirit that it ended," he said.
Rep. Joe Pickens, R-Palatka,
and the bill's co-sponsor, said
despite fail-
ure this time
around, he
believes a
version of the
bill should
appear in
the next
Legislative
Pickens session that
clarifies the roles the board and
the Legislature play in higher-
education governance.
Term limits, however, pre-
vent him from creating the leg-
islation himself.
"That will be for other folks
to decide," he said.

'Heroes' air show displays law-enforcement helicopters


* ABOUT 20 HELICOPTERS
WERE SHOWN AT SFCC.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Staff Writer

The Black Hawk's blades re-
mained motionless, and its sturdy,
army-green exterior didn't rumble
with life. It hadn't been called to
duty.
Instead, small children explored
the insides of the U.S. Army heli-
copter, squealing with excitement
as their imaginations took flight.
Families and helicopter en-
thusiasts alike headed out to
Gainesville's second American
Heroes Air Show on Saturday.
About 20 helicopters, which
were showcased on a grassy field
at SFCC, came from different agen-
cies in Florida that deal with law
enforcement, public safety and
national defense.
Parents watched as their chil-
dren sat proudly in the pilot's
seat of a new Bell 407 helicopter
from the Orange County Sheriff's
Office.
Orange County's five helicop-
ters are not used exclusively to
look for "bad guys," said Master
Deputy Bill Snarr, a pilot for the
sheriff's office.


They're also used to search for
lost children, the elderly and the
injured, Snarr said.
Robert McCullough, the chief
tactical flight observer for the
sheriff's office, also told air show
visitors about the helicopter's
technologies.
This included an infrared cam-
era, a Skypod that-sends video
back to the communications center
and an advanced GPS.
"We beat patrols now with this
system," McCullough said.
As U.S. Army Sgt. Jason Doyon
stood next to the Black Hawk, he
said he loves to teach people about
helicopters.
While Doyon was interacting
with families, he said. a man man-
aged to pull the emergency lever
and pop off the helicopter's door.
Repairing it only took about seven
minutes.
The Alachua County Sheriff's
Office and the Gainesville Police
Department were also showing off
their joint-aviation unit.
The air show is a great chance
for people to come out and ask
questions, said Bryan Smith, event
coordinator and GPD pilot.
"We've been on some neat pur-
suits where we have caught some-
body who would have otherwise
gotten away," Smith said.

Editorial 1


Short Changed

Legislature fails to


address pressing


issues


A s the spring term was winding down here at UF and at
other institutions of higher learning around the state,
so too was the 2008 legislative session in Tallahassee.
Last week, the Florida Legislature closed shop after three
months of supposedly working toward solutions to the many
serious problems facing our state.
But as we contemplate the damage that the state's largest
budget reduction in history-$4 billion-is likely to cause, the
only recourse we have is to shake our heads in frustration.
The most immediate outcome of the Legislature's failure to
adequately fund the state's colleges and universities in its $66
billion budget was the news from UF President Bernie Machen
that UF will be forced to slash its budget by $47 million. That
$47 million cut equates to a 6 percent reduction in funding for
every college and administrative unit university-wide.
Proposed casualties of UF's budget reduction plan range
from non-tenured professors and administrative staff to se-
lected degree programs.
And while Machen has borne the brunt of the criticism for
his budget-reduction plan from affected faculty and students,
he can hardly be blamed for these detrimental measures.
To paraphrase President Harry S. Truman, the buck stops
with the lawmakers in Tallahassee. It's their inadequate bud-
get that has forced Machen into these spending cuts.
This fact is lost on our leaders in Tallahassee, however, who
seem to be living in a parallel universe.
"What we are seeing here is just short of a miracle."
That's how state Sen. Steve Oelrich characterized the just
finished session.
Never to be outdone when it comes delusions of grandeur,
Gov. Charlie Crist had gushing praise for the Legislature's per-
formance during this year's session, announcing that he was
"so grateful to this Legislature for what they have done."
As we ruminate about the 2008 legislative session, we
find that the term "abysmal failure" is a more apt descrip-
tion of the shenanigans that went on in Tallahassee these past
few months. As we face the detrimental effects of a slowing
economy, our do-nothing legislature focused its attention on
the silly and the trivial.
Instead of ensuring and enhancing the quality of our edu-
cation system, providing affordable health care options for the
almost four million uninsured Floridians or overhauling the
state's inequitable tax code, our lawmakers focused on such
pressing issues as the Truck Nutz prohibition, the endorse-
ment of religious license plates and the teaching of creationism
in public schools, to name a few.
Thankfully, none of the above made it to the governor's
desk for his signature, but the very fact that such asinine top-
ics were even debated at all sums up the sheer stupidity of this
past session.
Rather than owning up to their collective failure, lawmak-
ers have patted themselves on the back for refusing to raise
taxes.
Obviously, no one likes to pay taxes. And the governor and
members of the Legislature are sure to score political points
for intransigence on this issue. However, the principles of
economics counterintuitively suggest that this is the wrong
move.
In times of economic stagnation, cutting government
spending has the effect of deepening or accelerating reces-
sion. According to economist David Denslow, director of UF's
Bureau of Economic and Business Research, for every dollar
of spending that the Legislature cuts, the state loses $1.50 in
economic activity.
In other words, our lawmakers' ideological limitations are
increasing - not aleviating - the state's economic woes while
simultaneously undermining Florida's education system.

Letters to the Editor
Grad students shouldn't replace profs.
Professors are the most important com-
ponent of any university, and they should
be UF's top priority. Machen is paid the big
dollars to think outside the box, and he is fail-
ing. I am aware that budgets for buildings and
professors come from separate funding, and I
am also aware that there are a few buildings
that have been constructed recently. But who
is going to teach in them?
The answer is graduate students. Machen
needs to convey to the teaching commu-


nity that professors come first. Five professors
from the English department recently retired.
The top-two English professors tried to come
back and teach in the fall, but the department
said "no" due to budget cuts.
Instead, the English department is having
nine graduate students teach upper-division
classes. I am sure this is the same for many
other departments, and this course of action
will certainly spread.
If UF is going to resort to graduate students
instead of professors, then the undergraduate


student body is better off going to a commu-
nity college.

Budget cuts hurt UF language programs
With budget cuts being carried out in all
areas of UF, some of the areas affected are the
Korean and Vietnamese language programs.
Important coursework should not even be a
choice for cuts if we want to be a top-10 school.
Diversity in our curriculum is one of the keys
to achieving that goal.


TUESDAY, MAY 13, 2008 K ALLIGATOR, 7


Without such programs, the school will be
denying many students their chance to refine
their home language or will even be denying
other students new cultural experiences. Cuts
shouldn't have to be made by a top univer-
sity like ours, but due to the poor allocation
of funds by the government, our schools face
difficult cuts. We as a community need to try
to at least voice our opinions and keep our lan-
guage programs alive and well here at UF.

Government must act to halt country's rising beer prices


In case you haven't heard, we
have an imminent crisis on our
hands.
The news-savvy college student
has likely heard that food prices are
on the rise, to the point that Third
World governments are being over-
thrown to protest the unavailability
of life's most basic commodity.
But a threat to one of the most sa-
cred pillars of the college experience
has subsequently emerged from
these developments, unbeknownst
to many of us who take this pillar
for granted.


Ladies and gentlemen, I'm talk-
ing about the increasing price of
beer. The cause of this price hike is
complex to some and tragic to all
and can't be placed squarely upon
any one source.
Prices of beer in general have ris-
en 3 percent compared to a year ago,
the biggest increase in beer prices in
two and a half years, according to
the U.S. Labor Department. Smaller
microbrews, such as Firestone
Walker's Union Jack India Pale Ale,
can cost as much as $9.99 for a six-
pack, up 40 percent from last year.


Aaron Gaidette With food
U-Wire prices grow-
ing at the
fastest rate in
17 years, college students may soon
be forced to choose between where
they get their sustenance: traditional
food or a more frosty, refreshingly
carbonated alternative.
Where do your loyalties lie?
As college students, we should
be particularly up in arms about the
implications that such price increas-
es can have on our most cherished
extracurricular activity.


Gas may be $4 a gallon, eggs and
milk may be up 13 percent, and we
may be fighting the most tragic war
of our time, but the price of beer go-
ing up?! Blasphemy! Mr. President,
we urgently need your intervention
to put a stop to this tragedy and ev-
erything that could fall out from it.
America may have plenty of press-
ing circumstances staring it in the
face, but where will we be if we're
unable to get sloppy drunk in order
to forget about them?
The situation is especially dire for
us college students, as much of our


educational experience hinges on the
availability of cheaply priced, abun-
dantly inebriating beer. Without
beer, we will have a nation of college
students who have nothing to tempt
them away from studying and pro-
vide them with countless opportuni-
ties that wouldn't arise if not for an
impaired thought process.
Is that something that we're pre-
pared to handle? Mr. President, the
time to act is now.

University. ,

IFAS, CLAS hit hardest


BUDGET, from page 1

lege-campus shootings. UF's libraries
are too essential to many academic
programs to take budget cuts, he
added.
The Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences took the largest
monetary cut, losing $9.5 million in
state funding next year. IFAS expects
to lose 14 faculty and 96 staff posi-
tions, including about 66 staff layoffs.
"They have a large state budget,"
Machen said. "The cut that they were
handed is 6 percent."
The College of Liberal Arts. and
Sciences follows behind, cutting $5.97
million from its budget. CLAS expect-
ed 17 staff and 16 faculty layoffs, but
due to a few resignations, the number
of faculty layoffs has since decreased
to 14, said Joe Glover, CLAS interim
dean. Several degree programs across
colleges will be cut, but students in
those programs will be able to finish
their degrees, he said.
Despite the layoffs, he said UF
expects to hire 15 to 20 more faculty
members in the 2008-2009 academic
year because of money earned -from
the Differential Tuition Program,
which allows UF to incrementally
raise tuition 40 percent over four
years starting with this fall's freshman
class. A 6 percent tuition boost from
the state Legislature and the 9 percent
boost from UF will increase UF's tu-


ition by 15 percent this fall.
The program stipulates that the
money earned from differential tu-
ition be spent toward hiring more
faculty members in colleges where
student demand is highest, he said. It
cannot be spent to retain faculty slated
to lose their jobs.
With the program, Machen said he
would be able to hire 150 professors
and counselors over four years. At a
Faculty Senate Steering Committee
meeting Thursday, Machen said he
would ask the Board of Trustees for
authority to reconsider some cuts
after the Wednesday meeting if a con-
vincing ar-
UF gument was
mrnstra made for an
alternative
move.
This news encourages John Biro,
president of UF's chapter of the
United Faculty of Florida, who said
the proposed cuts were not made
with enough explanation.
A Monday statement from the
faculty union expresses concern about
the proposal's effects on international
studies, faculty diversity, doctoral
programs and shared governance of
academic programs between faculty
and administration.
Biro said some of the choices slated
for elimination are not in line with
Machen's well-known goal to make
UF a top-tier public university.
"Everything that's happening
points in the other direction," he said.

education and improving UF's
graduation rates.
Glover has served as the in-
terim CLAS dean since January
2007. He was eligible to become
the college's permanent dean,
but Paul D'Anieri, a University
of Kansas official, was chosen to
head the college instead.
Before leading UF's largest
college, Glover was associate
provost for six years and spent
nine months as interim provost
from December 2004 through
August 2005.
Glover joined UF's faculty in
1982 as an assistant professor in
the department of mathematics,


and he was department chair-
- man from 1993 to 1998.
He also served as associate
Sdean for faculty affairs of CLAS
from 1998 to 2001.
Glover said one of the advan-
tages of spending time in the
provost's office is that he came
into
contact
UF ith all
Administration with al
segments
of UF.
"Usually when you're a depart-
ment chair or a dean, you come

* STORE BRINGS JOBS, COMMUNITY
PROJECTS TO EAST GAINESVILLE.

By CASSIDY MIRABITO
Alligator Contributing Writer

When the Wal-Mart Supercenter opened
its doors last week, it brought more than con-
venient shopping to East Gainesville.
The 24-hour store, located at 1800 NE 12th
Ave., is playing a role in community redevel-
opment.
About 440 jobs were created from the new
206,000-square-foot store, said Gene Gessler,
store manager.
It's the first Wal-Mart Supercenter in
Alachua County.
"The sales have exceeded our expecta-
tions," Gessler said Sunday. "The community
is excited we are here. It has been very excit-
ing to be a part of the first five days."
Rob Groeb, candidate for county judge,
has been involved in the effort to bring a
Wal-Mart Supercenter to Gainesville for
about four years. Groeb said he hopes the


opening of the store will stimulate economic
growth, development, retail and housing in
East Gainesville.
The Wal-Mart Supercenter has already
donated $18,000 in grants to organizations
such as the Gainesville Boys & Girls Club,
Gessler said during last Wednesday's open-
ing ceremony.
Current community projects the store is
involved with include Relay For Life, which
will be held in Northeast Gainesville starting
Friday, said Dorris Edwards, the store's per-
sonnel director.
Wal-Mart has entered a team, Wal-Mart
and Community, to camp out all night and
join the fight against cancer, Edwards said.
The store is also making efforts to promote
environmental sustainability.
"We're looking to save energy and pass
those savings on to the customer," said
Quenta Vettel, local Wal-Mart spokeswoman.
Vettel said the Wal-Mart saves energy by
using skylights that harvest daylight, mo-
tion-detecting lights in the refrigerators and
freezers and non-chemical cleaners on the
concrete floors.


Superfund project has faced challenges in past


NELSON, from page 1


tamination will be addressed properly to make
sure that our Floridian Aquifer, our drinking wa-
ter supply, is protected," said Rick Hutton, super-
vising utilities engineer at Gainesville Regional
Utilities.
However, data collected so far on the perim-
eter of the site suggests that very little contamina-
tion is currently moving off-site into the Florida
Aquifer, Hutton said.
Nelson, who has been working on getting the
site cleaned for four years, said the EPA has fi-
nally agreed to present a comprehensive plan this
September that will outline the steps to cleaning


the site. The Superfund project has struggled with
many problems, including the Bush administra-
tion letting the EPA Superfund run dry six years
ago, he said.
The city of Gainesville has spent about $1.5
million so far to try to fix this problem, said
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan.
Requested improvements to the site include
cleaning the contaminated on-site aquifers and
building additional wells along the perimeter
of the site to monitor contamination leaving the
area.
Also, there will be an emphasis on making
contingency plans in case the current plans prove
ineffective.

The Tide nearly rolled right
over the UF softball team.
After a season-long scramble
for Southeastern Conference


supremacy with the girls from
Tuscaloosa, the Gators needed
a final weekend sweep over
Tennessee to secure the second
regular-season title in school
history.

was "cheering for Tennessee."
The Gators (62-2, 27-1 SEC)
won the regular-season title by
posting the best record in school
history.
Their last SEC crown came in
1998 after finishing with a 23-5
conference record.
Then UF continued its streak
by winning the SEC Tournament
title for the first time in school
history.
The Tide got one more crack
at the Gators Saturday during the
championship game of the SEC
Tournament, but Alabama was
once again met with heartbreak
as UF won 4-1.
"They walked me all week-
end and to finally get
another chance was awe-
some."
Mary Ratliff
on the SEC-winning homer.

UF pitcher Stacey Nelson took
home the tournament's most
valuable player award.
Nelson pitched a complete
game while allowing only three
hits in her championship duel
with the Tide.
Just as she had done dur-
ing their second meeting in
Tuscaloosa, Ala., earlier this sea-
son, Mary Ratliff hit a sixth-in-
ning grand slam to put the game
away for the Gators.
"The way I look at it is that
I have a job to do," Ratliff said.

UF blanks Auburn 4-0 to advance to NCAA Round of 16


* THE GATORS ALSO SWEPT
JACKSONVILLE ON FRIDAY.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Every morning Whitney Benik
wakes up with a nervous feeling in
her stomach.
Maybe it's the thought that her
four-year career is almost over or
that she knows this is a team that
could win a national champion-


ship.
But whatever it is, that nervous
feeling just got a little easier to
handle after last weekend when
the Gators creamed their competi-
tion as they swept Jacksonville on
Friday and Auburn on Saturday,
both 4-0, to advance to the Round
of 16 in the NCAA Tournament.
Coach Roland Thornqvist said
his team is "hitting the ball the
best we have all year" after they
advanced to the quarterfinals for
the 21st time in 22 years.


Now, even though Thornqvist
said it's the "kiss of death" to talk
about winning the big one, the
Gators are four matches away from
their fifth national
championship.
"Each year I
always say 'This
Tennis is the best team
I've ever been on.
We can win it,'"
said Benik, who along with Lolita
Frangulyan became just the sec-
ond UF class to finish their careers


undefeated at home. "But this year
it's just different. We've got seven
players that can play anywhere in
the lineup.
"If it's not this year then I don't
know. We should do it. We've just
got to go play and get it."
Even Benik admitted that when
they play at home, she doesn't
feel like anybody can beat them.
Nobody has, either.
UF (22-2) will take on Vanderbilt
next in Tulsa, Okla., on Thursday.
The Gators beat up on the


Commodores (20-5) 5-2 in the
regular season and then again 4-2
in the Southeastern Conference
Tournament.
"Can we win it?," Thomqvist
said. "I think we can, but we don't
specifically say that in the locker
room."
UF can certainly win it if the
Gators continue their dominance
in doubles play.
They won the doubles point
against the Tigers on Saturday and

Deja-vu ends with


second-round win

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Erik Corace had been here before.
Score knotted at three. Playing against Miami. And this
time, if he lost, the door would've been opened even wider for
the Hurricanes.
On Jan. 29 in Coral Gables it came down to Corace and
Miami's J.C. Whitner for the game-winning point, but Corace
fell 6-3 in the deciding set, and UF had its first loss of the sea-
son.
But on Sunday, against Miami in the second round of the
NCAA Tournament, it came down to Corace again, and this
time he came through. With the Hurricanes clinging to one
point and hoping that Daniel Vallverdu could upset UF's Greg
Ouellette in the No. I position, Corace came
back from down 5-2 to beat Whitner 6-1, 7-6
(2). That win sent the Gators to the Round of
16 for the seventh-straight season.
UF (17-7) will now play No. 7 Texas
Friday in Tulsa, Okla.
"He's shown me that his composure
and maturity is a lot better and that he's
Corace iimproved," UF Coach Andy Jackson said of
corace Corace. "For Erik to dose it out says a lot for
us and says a lot for the guts of Miami."
The elder classmen have certainly taken notice of Corace's
growth throughout his freshman year.
"He's definitely learned a lot," senior Nestor Briceno said.
"He's grown so much, and I'm so proud of him. He's someone
people should look forward to watching in the coming years."
For just a freshman, Corace has certainly had time to sit in-
the pressure cooker. He said he's been through four matches
this season where it came down to him.
"I got a little ahead of myself today in the second set and got
down 5-2,but I kept fighting," Corace said. "It was windy, and
I just thought to myself to just keep balls in play."

UF earns top rank for first time, joins seven SEC teams in tourna-


SOFT, from page 17


"They walked me all weekend
and to finally get another chance
was awesome. I'm just glad I
could deliver."
Then it just kept on getting
better for the.Gators as coach Tim
Walton was named SEC Coach of
the Year, and Nelson, who has 40
wins and 298 strikeouts on the
season, won SEC Pitcher of the
Year.


On top of that Nelson, just
a junior, has also been named
a Top-10 finalist for National
Player of the Year.
"She's the player of the year
in my book," Walton said. "Take
Stacey Nelson off this team and
we're not as good. I don't think
a lot of teams out there can say
that."
The Gators earned the No. 1
overall seed in the NCAA tourna-
ment and will host the first three
rounds at Katie Seashole Pressly


Stadium, starting on Friday
against Georgia Tech.
Should UF advance in the
tournament, the
Gators would
not have to
play a game
away from
home until they
made the trip
Nelson to Oklahoma
City, Okla., for
Women's College World Series.
This year's No. 1 ranking


marks the first time the Gators
have earned a top-10 seed in the
program's history.
UF is one of eight SEC to make
the tournament field - the most
of any conference in the nation.
This is especially impressive
considering an SEC school has
never won the Women's College
World Series, although the SEC
has only been playing softball for
11 years.
"It's awesome to be playing at
home," said Walton, who's in his


third season at UF."This is what
our record is for. This is why you
win games, so you can host a re-
gional."
Murphy may have put ijbest
about this year's UF squad, which
has won 35 games in a row.
"You know- it's Murphy's Law
when you can go 25-3 in the con-
ference and still end up second,"
Murphy said.
"It could have gone either
way, but just like it's been alyear
Florida came out on top."


Gators earn rare 5-0 win in first round against Navy with unusual calls

trying to make sense of it."
It was a much easier start to the tourna-
ment for the Gators as they throttled Navy on
Saturday 5-0.
Teams need only four points to secure a
win, but UF was able to score the fifth in a rare
play where Tyler Hochwalt's winning serve
went up the same time as Briceno's. Since
Briceno's ball was in play, it was allowed to
stand and he beat out Jason Hill's score.
"The Navy guy was a good sport," Briceno


said. "It was fun kicking his butt."
While the score doesn't indicate it, the
Midshipmen did put up a tough fight in the
doubles competition.
Hochwalt and Geoffrey Barton just held off
Hill and Nick Birger 8-6 for the doubles point.
"They probably thought they could win
until they lost the doubles," Jacksonr said.
Added Briceno: /
"They were extremely tough in doubles. I
think we underestimated them in doubles."

TUESDAY, MAY 13, 2008 Machen.announces $47M in budget cuts More than 400 faculty, staff positions cut By KATIE SANDERS Alligator Staff Writer ksanders@alligator.org UF President Bemie Machen announced long-awaited and already controversial plans to slash the university's budget by $47 million to cope with state revenue shortfalls last week. About 430 faculty and staff positions will be cut under Machen's proposal, resulting in about 20 faculty and 118 staff layoffs. About 290 of the faculty and staff positions were vacant positions from each college, and some positions will be funded by other money instead of state dollars. No tenured faculty will be laid off. Plans to lower enrollment by 1,000 students each year for the next four years were also released. The number of transfer students UF invited for the upcoming fall semester was reduced by one-third, or 1,000 students. All colleges and administrative units were instructed by Machen to prepare their budgets for a 6 percent cut. Machen said he left most of the budget decisions to the deans and vice presidents, but he said he did send some proposals back Machen for reworking. The $47 million cut, in addition to the $22 million crunch UF absorbed in October, makes UF's general revenue budget $69 million less than last year's. The proposals willibe voted onby UF's Board of Trustees, UF's highest governing body, during a telephone conference Wednesday morning. UF's security programs and libraries were spared from the cuts. Machen said in a May 5 news conference that protecting campussecurity initiatives was an obvious decision in light of recent U.S. colSEE BUDGET, PAGE 8 UF ADMINISTRATION UF names new provost By KATIE SANDERS Alligator Etaff Writer ksanders@alligator.org Joseph Glover, interim dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, will become UF's provost on July 1.

Glover, whose promotion was announced May 2, signed a three-year contract as provost and will receive $300,000 a year, according to a UF news release.

BILL NELSON MET WITH LOCAL LEADERS ON MONDAY. By CHRISTOPHER MYERS Alligator contributing Writer For 25 years, Gainesville has been trying to clean up industrial contamination at the Cabot Carbon/Koppers Superfund Site. The site, located at Northwest 23rd Avenue just west of Main Street, received attention from the Environmental Protection Agency on Monday. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., met with officials from Gainesville, Alachua County and the EPA to discuss plans to clean up the most polluted place in Gainesville. The site was designated a Superfund site in 1983, when it was determined that industrial contamination had impacted soil and groundwater. The Superfund is an agreement chemical companies made that, in exchange for having no liability, requires them to pay an annual fee into the Superfund, Nelson said. The fund is then used to clean up various contaminated sites, he said. Since then, the E level of contamination Issues has been determined to be worse than initially thought, resulting in the EPA comunittee deeming the original clean-up plan ineffective, according to the site's 2006 five-year renewal plan.

TUESDAY, MAY 13, 2008 0 ALLIGATOR, 3 CLAS faculty upset as college bears brunt of layoffs N COLLEGE ALSO FACES LOSS OF SEVERAL ACADEMIC PROGRAMS. By DEBORAH SWERDLOW Alligator Contributing Writer To meet its share of a $47 million budget cut, UF's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences will reduce its foreign language offerings, lay off more than 30 faculty and staff and eliminate three Ph.D. programs. The $5.97 million cut amounts to 6 percent of CLAS' budget. The Board of Trustees, UF's highest governing body, will vote on the budget proposal Wednesday morning. The 6 percent cut has to be taken by July 1, which is the same day Paul D'Anieri, currently a University of Kansas official, becomes the college's new dean. Every UF unit is also shouldering a 6 percent budget cut, but CLAS' share is the second-largest dollar amount and carries the greatest faculty cost -nearly 80 percent of UF's faculty layoffs come from CLAS. The faculty layoffs stem mostly from the closing of the Korean and Vietnamese language programs and the Ph.D. programs in philosophy, French and German. All of the Ph.D. students as of fall 2008 -about 27 in philosophy and nearly 30 in French and German -will be allowed to finish their degrees. CLAS will also combine the criminology department with sociology, merge three foreign language departments into two, and combine the zoology, botany and biology teaching departments to save administrative costs. As news of the budget cuts traveled around the university last week, CLAS faculty and students criticized Joe Glover, interim dean and soon-to-be provost, for using limited faculty input in the decisions, targeting the humanities and languages, and lowering UF's faculty diversity. "If the interim dean had been a physician, in my opinion, he'd be charged with malpractice," said Chris Snodgrass, a UF English professor, at a Faculty Senate Steering Committee meeting on Thursday. But UF President Bernie Machen said at the meeting that he was not convinced of any wrongdoing, and Glover continues to defend his decisions. "I'm very sympathetic to all of these issues, but I think that we had to simply do it on the basis of what's best for the students and what's best for the university," Glover said. He said he asked the college's Faculty Finance Committee and Faculty Council to advise him on how to meet a 6 percent budget cut. However, both groups submitted proposals that only covered $2 million or $3 million, he said. With these recommendations in hand, Glover said he made his decisions based on which programs had "less productivity per dollar." But Robert D'Amico, chair of the philosophy department, said he doesn't understand how Glover thinks his Ph.D. program is unproductive. D'Amico said his faculty members have published nine books and about 150 journal articles in the last two years. If UF eliminates its Ph.D. in philosophy, it would be one of fewer than 10 institutions in its peer group, the Association of American Universities, that doesn't offer a doctorate degree in philosophy. "If the interim dean had been a physician, in my opinion, he'd be charged with malpractice." Chris Snodgrass UF English professor Because the current Ph.D. students in philosophy, French and German will be allowed to finish their degrees, UF will not see immediate savings. The same issue arises with faculty layoffs. Because most faculty are entitled to one year's notice of a layoff, they will still teach and draw salaries-for the next school year. Glover said Machen will decide how to cover the budget difference while faculty members remain at UF for the next year. As for the Ph.D. programs, the savings are still large because the programs' operating budgets will shrink as no new students are admitted, Glover said. But some department chairs wonder if eliminating the programs outright is the best move. David Pharies, chair of the Romance languages and literatures department, which is losing its Ph.D. program in French, said he would rather UF tell him to temporarily stop admitting students. That way, the program's budget could shrink, and it could remain competitive until UF's financial situation is stronger, Pharies said. Another point of conflict is the proposed reorganization of language departments, which combines most of the languages into one department of "modem foreign languages" and creates a Spanish language and literature department. Will Hasty, Germanic and Slavic studies department chairman, said he's worried that the modem languages department will be so large that it won't get enough support. "If you've been around the university for the last few years, one of the big things that you hear about is internationalization," Hasty said. "That all is going to suffer." Ann Wehmeyer, chair of the African and Asian languages and literatures department, said that her main concern right now is her faculty. Six of her employees are being laid off, all of whom are women or minorities. "Kids going to (the University of) Florida are not all white," she said. "It took 20 years to build the program.

4, ALLIGATOR 0 TUESDAY, MAY 13, 2008 UF student found dead in grandmother's home E FAMILY REMEMBERS UF JUNIOR FOR HIS LOVE OF LITERATURE. By KATIE SANDERS Alligator Staff Writer ksanders@alligator.org A 25-year-old UF student died May 1 in his grandmother's Plantation, Fla., home. The cause of death of Ira Carl Rosenzweig, a history junior, is still under investigation, said Ellen Rosenzweig, his mother. Rosenzweig, called a modem-day "Jimmy Dean" by his mother, was born Oct. 14,1982. He died from what his mother believes was an accidental overdose of a prescription drug. "He didn't leave any signs as though he was going to leave the earth that day," she said. "I know at least he passed without pain." She said her son battled depression after the deaths of his girlfriend in February 2007 and his father in October. He spent the spring semester living with his grandmother but planned to return to UF this summer, his mother said. Before attending UF, Rosenzweig graduated from SFCC in December 2005, she said. He attended high school in Greensboro, N.C. His mother said her son's goal was to at"It's a terrible loss for the world because Ira had so much to offer." Ellen Rosenzweig Ira Rosenzweig's mother tend Harvard University after eating his bachelor's degree and become a college history professor. He had a love for classic literature and wrote poems, stories and essays, she said. He revered writers such as Walt Whitman, Charles Bukowski and Ernest Hemingway. His mother said the family plans to publish more than 700 of his collected poems and short stories as a tribute to her son. Services for Rosenzweig were held at his grandmother's home. His mother traveled to Asheville, N.C., Monday to scatter the ashes of her husband and son along the countryside. "We're going to find them a serene, beautiful spot in North Carolina," she said. She said she hopes her son's death serves as a "wake-up call" to students who believe drugs and alcohol can solve their problems. "His friends called him a genius," she said. "It's a terrible loss for the world because Ira had so much to offer." Locals serve up zucchini to help fund fire department By ZACH SEYMOUR Alligator Contributing Writer The air was hot, the sun was bright, and the sweet smell of frying zucchini swept through the pine trees like a cool breeze on a muggy southern day. For the past 24 years, the town of Windsor, located seven miles east of Gainesville, has been transformed by the Windsor Zucchini Festival for one day each May to raise money for its volunteer fire department. The concept of a small-town festival to raise money isn't unique, but choosing to focus on zucchini is certainly rare. When asked why zucchini is the center of the celebration, "Why not?" was the reply from Bobbi Walton, the chairperson of the festival. The crop is grown near Windsor. Walton is the self-declared "head zucchini" of the event. People call her "Ma," and though there are no formal elections, her parking spot reads "Reserved for the Mayor." She has been with the festival since its inception and seems to runs. Walton said when the festival started in 1984, there were so few people in attendance that they This year, she estimated, thoucould have held it in the small sands came. firehouse.

TUESDAY, MAY 13, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 5 ABC News selects UF for college news program Four students to work in mini-news bureau By ELIZABETH LEVA Alligator Contributing Writer ABC News has selected UF as one of five universities across the nation to participate in the first-ever "ABC News on Campus" program this fall. John Green, an ABC executive producer, said the program allows students to gain experience from a professional journalism organization in a mini-news bureau on their campus. ABC will provide equipment such as cameras and computers for the program, which will be run by four students from the UF College of Journalism and Communications chosen by ABC, Green said. ABC will publish most of the student-generated content on the ABC News Web site, but any story has a shot at winding up on Good Morning America or Nightline, he added. After researching journalism programs in universities across the nation for more than a year, Green said UF stood out. "The quality of the students who showed interest in the program was unbelievable," he said. The other schools chosen for the program are Arizona State University, Syracuse University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Texas. Miles Doran, a On telecommunications CaMPU(fo junior, was selected as the reporter for next year. Doran said the positions of bureau chief, reporter, photographer and integrated media producer will receive a combined $10,000 each semester. And the perks don't stop there. The bureau chief of each program will be sent to New York City twice a year to train at the ABC News headquarters, Doran said. Mark Leeps, WUF news director, will oversee students in the ABC newsroom in Weimer Hall and serve as the liaison between UF and ABC. "Being able to participate in a program at the network level right at UF is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for students," Leeps said. UF ADMINISTRATION Med dean offers apologies By DEBORAH SWERDLOW Alligator Contributing Writer The dean of UF's College of Medicine has apologized for divisive comments he made after his decision to overrule the admissions committee became public more than a month ago. The dean, Dr. Bruce Kone, continues to defend the student's credentials while UP tries to find who leaked the student's name to the media. In April, Kone admitted Benjamin Mendelsohn, the son of a major Republican contributor, into UF's medical school despite the student's rejection by the admissions committee. On April 4, the day after Kone's decision made the news, he met with UF officials. Later that day, he sent them what he now deems a "hurtful e-mail." In the e-mail, he criticized their response to the situation and wrote, "It's a small town. There are small minds. But for crap's sakes, and speaking strictly as an alumnus, wake up. You are talented. Start leading." On May 6, Kone apologized for the comments at a College of Medicine Faculty Council meeting. He summarized his apology in an e-mail sent afterward. "It was disrespectful and demeaning to our leaders, our university and our community, and it was just plain wrong," he wrote of his earlier comments. For the first time, Kone also described Mendelsohn's qualifications, including an SAT score of 1535 and a record of civic service, in the e-mail. Privacy laws kept Kone from going into more detail and were supposed to keep Mendelsohn's name from .getting out into the media, but several anonymous members of the school's selections committee identified Mendelsohn in news reports and said he had not taken the MCAT. "it was disrespectful and demeaning to our leaders, our university and our community, and it was just plain wrong." Dr. Bruce Kone dean of uf's college of medicine Janine Sikes, UF spokeswoman, said UF's privacy officer has mounted an investigation to learn which committee members may have violated federal privacy laws by sharing that information. Sikes said the investigation has consisted of interviews with about 30 of the 50 committee members, including some students. Faculty e-mails are public record, but student e-mails are generally private. UF's Acceptable Use Policy states that it can look through a student's e-mail account if that student may have broken any laws. No vote on BOG bill Florida's Board of Governors will continue to preside over the state's 11 public universities in its current structure despite a surge of support for a plan aiming to establish a new system with a limited board. After soaring through the state Senate in March, support for a bill that would have reduced the number of members on the board, the State University System's highest governing body, from 17 to eight died in the House of Representatives. If passed, the bill would have also made the state education commissioner an elected position. Bill Edmonds, the board's spokesman, said the board is thankful that the House took its time in weighing out the issue. "We're hopeful that the Legislature will continue in the spirit that it ended," he said. Rep. Joe Pickens, R-Palatka, and the bill's co-sponsor, said despite failure flhis time around, he -~ believes a version of the bill should appear in the next Legislative session that clarifies the roles the board and the Legislature play in highereducation governance. Term limits, however, prevent him from creating the legislation himself. "That will be for other folks to decide," he said. -KATIE SANDERS 'Heroes' air show displays law-enforcement helicopters 0 ABOUT 20 HELICOPTERS WERE SHOWN AT SFCC. By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Staff Writer The Black Hawk's blades remained motionless, and its sturdy, army-green exterior didn't rumble with life. It hadn't been called to duty. Instead, small children explored the insides of the U.S. Army helicopter, squealing with excitement as their imaginations took flight. Families and helicopter enthusiasts alike headed out to Gainesville's second American Heroes Air Show on Saturday. About 20 helicopters, which were showcased on a grassy field at SFCC, came from different agencies in Florida that deal with law enforcement, public safety and national defense. Parents watched as their children sat proudly in the pilot's seat of a new Bell 407 helicopter from the Orange County Sheriff's Office. Orange County's five helicopters are not used exclusively to look for "bad guys," said Master Deputy Bill Snarr, a pilot for the sheriff's office. They're also used to search for lost children, the elderly and the injured, Snarr said. Robert McCullough, the chief tactical flight observer for the sheriff's office, also told air show visitors about the helicopter's technologies.

The Alachua County Sheriff's Office and the Gainesville Police Department were also showing off their joint-aviation unit.

6, ALLIGATOR 0 TUESDAY, MAY 13, 2008 Editorial Short Changed Legislature fails to address pressing issues s the spring term was winding down here at UF and at other institutions of higher learning around the state, A so too was the 2008 legislative session in Tallahassee. Last week, the Florida Legislature closed shop after three months of supposedly working toward solutions to the many serious problems facing our state. But as we contemplate the damage that the state's largest budget reduction in history-$4 billion-is likely to cause, the only recourse we have is to shake our heads in frustration. The most immediate outcome of the Legislature's failure to adequately fund the state's colleges and universities in its $66 billion budget was the news from UF President Bernie Machen that UF will be forced to slash its budget by $47 million. That $47 million cut equates to a 6 percent reduction in funding for every college and administrative unit university-wide. Proposed casualties of UF's budget reduction plan range from non-tenured professors and administrative staff to selected degree programs. And while Machen has borne the brunt of the criticism for his budget-reduction plan from affected faculty and students, he can hardly be blamed for these detrimental measures. To paraphrase President Harry S. Truman, the buck stops with the lawmakers in Tallahassee. It's their inadequate budget that has forced Machen into these spending cuts. This fact is lost on our leaders in Tallahassee, however, who seem to be living in a parallel universe. "What we are seeing here is just short of a miracle." That's how state Sen. Steve Oelrich characterized the just finished session. Never to be outdone when it comes delusions of grandeur, Gov. Charlie Crist had gushing praise for the Legislature's performance during this year's session, announcing that he was so grateful to this Legislature for what they have done." As we ruminate about the 2008 legislative session, we find that the term "abysmal failure" is a more apt description of the shenanigans that went on in Tallahassee these past few months. As we face the detrimental effects of a slowing economy, our do-nothing legislature focused its attention on the silly and the trivial. Instead of ensuring and enhancing the quality of our education system, providing affordable health care options for the almost four million uninsured Floridians or overhauling the state's inequitable tax code, our lawmakers focused on such pressing issues as the Truck Nutz prohibition, the endorsement of religious license plates and the teaching of creationism in public schools, to name a few. Thankfully, none of the above made it to the governor's desk for his signature, but the very fact that such asinine topics were even debated at all sums up the sheer stupidity of this past session. Rather than owning up to their collective failure, lawmakers have patted themselves on the back for refusing to raise taxes. Obviously, no one likes to pay taxes. And the governor and members of the Legislature are sure to score political points for intransigence on this issue. However, the principles of economics counterintuitively suggest that this is the wrong move. In times of economic stagnation, cutting government spending has the effect of deepening or accelerating recession. According to economist David Denslow, director of UF's Bureau of Economic and Business Research, for every dollar of spending that the Legislature cuts, the state loses $1.50 in economic activity. In other words, our lawmakers' ideological limitations are increasing-not aleviating -the state's economic woes while simultaneously undermining Florida's education system. a l t independent florida r Joshua Fredrickson OPINIONS EDITOR Devin Culclasure EDITOR Jessica Ponn MANAGING EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Opinions HEALTH AFFAIRS MEDICINE EDUCATION ENGINEERING LAW FOOD AND AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES ALLIGATOR www.aIligator.org/opinion VETERINARY MEDICINE I CLAS @UD@[T WT5? Alligator offers sun ith the first day of class behind me, it has finally sunk in: Summer is here. Ah, summer at UP It's a surreal departure from the crowded bustle of fall or spring semesters, a moment where students fly through accelerated courses while life outside the classroom seems to come to a slow, sweaty trickle in the Gainesville heat. I have plenty of typical summer memories from my time at UF: lazy afternoons by my complex pool, fun nights spent enjoying a less-crowded midtown and the occasional bored weekend when I lamented the fact that football games were still months away. But this summer, the Alligator staff and I want to extend an opportunity for you to go beyond the typical. We want to print the best possible paper this summer. With that goal in mind, we're still looking to fill positions, including reporters, photographers and opinions columnists. Sound interesting? Aspiring journalists are invited to check out these positions and others at our open house, which will take place a week from today at the Alligator's office on University Avenue, located a few blocks east of campus. From 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., you will be welcome to meet the current staff, ask questions, enjoy free pizza and admire the newsroom's charming wood-paneled walls -very retro. You can even lecture me on what you don't like about the Alligator. At this point, you may be a little skeptical. The Alligator may have burned you like the summer sun in the past. Maybe your article, column or letter wasn't printed, or maybe you didn't get the position you hoped for. Don't be discouraged. I failed several times before landing my first entry-level job. We aren't likely to print everything you send us or give away our most prestigious nmer opportunities Editorial Notebook deurclasure@alligator.org jobs to unproven students. But we are likely to recognize hardworking, driven students, and open house will be a great opportunity to get your foot in the door. And once you're through the door, there are many directions to travel. For starters, your very own smiling face could be right where mine is. Do you want your views heard? Are you mad as hell and not going to take it anymore? Then maybe a position as an opinions colunist is right for you. The application is as simple as sending a 550-word sample column to letters@alligator.org. Perhaps advertising sounds more appealing to you. The Alligator can be a great place to get hands-on experience, and representatives from our advertising department will be on-hand at open house. Or maybe you're one of the brave souls determined to become the next great investigative reporter despite the low pay and ever-shrinking newsrooms around the country. You may not get the opportunity to keep tabs on Bernie and the gang or uncover dark government conspiracies right away, but you can prove you've got what it takes by working on some smaller pieces first. Even Alligator alumi like celebrated author Carl Hiaasen and recent Pulitzer Prize winners David Finkel and Debbie Cenziper had to start somewhere. Hopefully, I'll see you next week, and we can begin making this sumnimer's Alligator anything but typical. Devin Culclasure is a journalism senior and the editor of the Alligator.

Letters to the Editor Grad students shouldn't replace profs. Professors are the most important component of any university, and they should be UF's top priority. Machen is paid the big dollars to think outside the box, and he is failing. I am aware that budgets for buildings and professors come from separate funding, and I am also aware that there are a few buildings that have been constructed recently. But who is going to teach in them? The answer is graduate students. Machen needs to convey to the teaching community that professors come first. Five professors from the English department recently retired. The top-two English professors tried to come back and teach in the fall, but the department said "no" due to budget cuts. Instead, the English department is having nine graduate students teach upper-division classes. I am sure this is the same for many other departments, and tils course of action will certainly spread. If UF is going to resort to graduate students instead of professors, then the undergraduate student body is better off going to a community college. Michael Walker 4LS Budget cuts hurt UF language programs With budget cuts being carried out in all areas of UT, some of the areas affected are the Korean and Vietnamese language programs. Important coursework should not even be a choice for cuts if we want to be a top-10 school. Diversity in our curriculum is one of the keys to achieving that goal. TUESDAY, MAY 13, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 7 Without such programs, the school will be denying many students their chance to refine their home language or will even be denying other students new cultural experiences. Cuts shouldn't have to be made by a top uriversity like ours, but due to the poor allocation of funds by the government, our schools face difficult cuts. We as a community need to try to at least voice our opinions and keep our language programs alive and well here at UF. Norman Chang 4LS GLest Column Government must act to halt country's rising beer prices In case you haven't heard, we have an imminent crisis on our hands. The news-savvy college student has likely heard that food prices are on the rise, to the point that Third World governments are being overthrown to protest the unavailability of life's most basic commodity. But a threat to one of the most sacred pillars of the college experience has subsequently emerged from these developments, unbeknownst to many of us who take this pillar for granted. Ladies and gentlemen, I'm talking about the increasing price of beer. The cause of this price hike is complex to some and tragic to all and can't be placed squarely upon any one source. Prices of beer in general have risen 3 percent compared to a year ago, the biggest increase in beer prices in two and a half years, according to the U.S. Labor Department. Smaller microbrews, such as Firestone Walker's Union Jack India Pale Ale, can cost as much as $9.99 for a sixpack, up 40 percent from last year. Aaron Gaidette With food U-Wire prices growing at the fastest rate in 17 years, college students may soon be forced to choose between where they get their sustenance: traditional food or a more frosty, refreshingly carbonated alternative. Where do your loyalties lie? As college students, we should be particularly up in arms about the implications that such price increases can have on our most cherished extracurricular activity. Gas may be $4 a gallon, eggs and milk may be up 13 percent, and we may be fighting the most tragic war of our time, but the price of beer going up?! Blasphemy! Mr. President, we urgently need your intervention to put a stop to this tragedy and everythirng that could fall out from it. America may have plenty of pressing circumstances staring it in the face, but where will we be if we're unable to get sloppy drunk in order to forget about them? The situation is especially dire for us college students, as much of our educational experience hinges on the availability of cheaply priced, abundantly inebriating beer. Without beer, we will have a nation of college students who have nothing to tempt them away from studying and provide them with countless opportunities that wouldn't arise if not for an impaired thought process. Is that something that we're prepared to handle? Mr. President, the time to act is now. Aaron Gaidette is a student at California Polytechnic State University.

8, ALLIGATOR N TUESDAY, MAY 13, 2008 IFAS, CLAS hit hardest BUDGET, from page 1 lege-campus shootings. UF's libraries are too essential to many academic programs to take budget cuts, he added. The Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences took the largest monetary cut, losing $9.5 million in state funding next year. IFAS expects to lose 14 faculty and 96 staff positions, including about 66 staff layoffs. "They have a large state budget," Machen said. "The cut that they were handed is 6 percent." The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences follows behind, cutting $5.97 million from its budget. CLAS expected 17 staff and 16 faculty layoffs, but due to a few resignations, the number of faculty layoffs has since decreased to 14, said Joe Glover, CLAS interim dean. Several degree programs across colleges will be cut, but students in those programs will be able to finish their degrees, he said. Despite the layoffs, he said UF expects to hire 15 to 20 more faculty members in the 2008-2009 academic year because of money earned from the Differential Tuition Program, which allows UF to incrementally raise tuition 40 percent over four years starting with this fall's freshman class. A 6 percent tuition boost from the state Legislature and the 9 percent boost from UF will increase UF's tuition by 15 percent this fall. The program stipulates that the money earned from differential tuition be spent toward hiring more faculty members in colleges where student demand is highest, he said. It cannot be spent to retain faculty slated to lose their jobs. With the program, Machen said he would be able to hire 150 professors and counselors over four years. At a Faculty Senate Steering Committee meeting Thursday, Machen said he would ask the Board of Trustees for authority to reconsider some cuts after the Wednesday meeting if a convincing arUF gument was made for an alternative move. This news encourages John Biro, president of UF's chapter of the United Faculty of Florida, who said the proposed cuts were not made with enough explanation. A Monday statement from the faculty union expresses concem about the proposal's effects on international studies, faculty diversity, doctoral programs and shared governance of academic programs between faculty and administration. Biro said some of the choices slated for elimination are not in line with Machen's well-known goal to make UF a top-tier public university. "Everything that's happening points in the other direction," he said. Budget cuts by college -Business Administration: $1.47 million Dentistry: $1.1 million -Design, Construction and Planning: $595,000 -Fine Arts: $801,000 Education: $955,000 -Engineering: $3.6 million -Health and Human Performance: $534,000 -Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences: $9.5 million -Journalism and Communications: $580,000 Law: $1.24 million .Liberal Arts and Sciences: $5.97 million -Medicine: $2.64 million -Nursing: $510,000 Office of Heplth Affairs: $1.02 million -Pharmacy: $830,000 Public Health and Health Professions: $730,000 -Veterinary Medicine: $1.55 million Sarah Hsu / Alligator Staff Last One Standing Charisse Calaquian tries to knock Michael Stromquist off an inflatable pedestal Monday on the Plaza of the Americas during the Summer A Welcome Bash hosted by the InterResidence Hall Association.

TUESDAY, MAY 13, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 9 7 -g New Wal-Mart opens Customers shop in the newly opened Wal-Mart Supercenter on Northeast 12th Avenue and Waldo Road Saturday afternoon. E STORE BRINGS JOBS, COMMUNITY PROJECTS TO EAST GAINESVILLE. By CASSIDY MIRABITO Alligator Contributing Writer When the Wal-Mart Supercenter opened its doors last week, it brought more than convenient shopping to East Gainesville. The 24-hour store, located at 1800 NE 12th Ave., is playing a role in community redevelopment. About 440 jobs were created from the new 206,000-square-foot store, said Gene Gessler, store manager. It's the first Wal-Mart Supercenter in Alachua County. "The sales have exceeded our expectations," Gessler said Sunday "The community is excited we are here. It has been very exciting to be a part of the first five days." Rob Groeb, candidate for county judge, has been involved in the effort to bring a Wal-Mart Supercenter to Gainesville for about four years. Groeb said he hopes the opening of the store will stimulate economic growth, development, retail and housing in East Gainesville. The Wal-Mart Supercenter has already donated $18,000 in grants to organizations such as the Gainesville Boys & Girls Club, Gessler said during last Wednesday's opening ceremony. Current community projects the store is involved with include Relay For Life, which will be held in Northeast Gainesville starting Friday, said Dorris Edwards, the store's personnel director. Wal-Mart has entered a team, Wal-Mart and Community, to camp out all night and join the fight against cancer, Edwards said. The store is also making efforts to promote environmental sustainability. "We're looking to save energy and pass those savings on to the customer," said Quenta Vettel, local Wal-Mart spokeswoman. Vettel said the Wal-Mart saves energy by using skylights that harvest daylight, motion-detecting lights in the refrigerators and freezers and non-chemical cleaners on the concrete floors. Glover has UF experience PROVOST, from page 1 and he was department chairman from 1993 to 1998. education and improving UF's graduation rates. Glover has served as the interim CLAS dean since January 2007. He was eligible to become the college's permanent dean, but Paul D'Anieri, a University of Kansas official, was chosen to head the college instead. Before leading UF's largest college, Glover was associate provost for six years and spent nine months as interim provost from December 2004 through August 2005. Glover joined UF's faculty in 1982 as an assistant professor in the department of mathematics, He aiso served as associate dean for faculty affairs of CLAS from 1998 to 2001. Glover said one of the advantages of spending time in the provost's office is that he came i n t o contact UF with all Adminstviios segments of UP. "Usually when you're a department chair or a dean, you come to know one college fairly intimately," he said. "I feel that I have a pretty good understanding of a wide variety of units across the university." Superfund project has faced challenges in past NELSON, from page 1 tamination will be addressed properly to make sure that our Floridian Aquifer, our drinking water supply, is protected," said Rick Hutton, supervising utilities engineer at Gainesville Regional Utilities. However, data collected so far on the perimeter of the site suggests that very little contamination is currently moving off-site into the Florida Aquifer, Hutton said. Nelson, who has been working on getting the site cleaned for four years, said the EPA has finally agreed to present a comprehensive plan this September that will outline the steps to cleaning the site. The Superfund project has struggled with many problems, including the Bush administration letting the EPA Superfund run dry six years ago, he said. The city of Gainesville has spent about $1.5 million so far to try to fix this problem, said Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan. Requested improvements to the site include cleaning the contaminated on-site aquifers and building additional wells along the perimeter of the site to monitor contamination leaving the area. Also, there will be an emphasis on making contingency plans in case the current plans prove ineffective.

Team earns No. I overall seed By MIKE DiFERDINANDO Alligator Staff Writer mdiferdinando@alligator.org The Tide nearly rolled right over the UF softball team. After a season-long scramble for Southeastern Conference supremacy with the girls from Tuscaloosa, the Gators needed a final weekend sweep over Tennessee to secure the second regular-season title in school history. Alabama coach Patrick Murphy even admitted his team -, Marianne Lijewski/ Alligator Staff Stacey Nelson throws a pitch in the 9th inning during the Gators' 1-0 win over North Carolina on Feb. 17. was "cheering for Tennessee." The Gators (62-2, 27-1 SEC) won the regular-season title by posting the best record in school history. Their last SEC crown came in 1998 after finishing with a 23-5 conference record. Then UF continued its streak by winning the SEC Tournament title for the first time in school history. The Tide got one more crack at the Gators Saturday during the championship game of the SEC Tournament, but Alabama was once again met with heartbreak as UF won 4-1. "They walked me all weekend and to finally get another chance was awesome." Mary Ratliff on the SEC-winning homer UF pitcher Stacey Nelson took home the tournament's most valuable player award. Nelson pitched a complete game while allowing only three hits in her championship duel with the Tide. Just as she had done during their second meeting in Tuscaloosa, Ala., earlier this season, Mary Ratliff hit a sixth-inning grand slaim to put the game away for the Gators. "The way I look at it is that I have a job to do," Ratliff said. SEE SOFT, PAGE 19 Sports TUESDAY, MAY 13,2008 UF blanks Auburn 4-0 to advance to NCAA Round of 16 I THE GATORS ALSO SWEPT JACKSONVILLE ON FRIDAY. By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteeleealligator.org Every morning Whitney Benik wakes up with a nervous feeling in her stomach. Maybe it's the thought that her four-year career is almost over or that she knows this is a team that could win a national championship. But whatever it is, that nervous feeling just got a little easier to handle after last weekend when the Gators creamed their competition as they swept Jacksonville on Friday and Auburn on Saturday, both 4-0, to advance to the Round of 16 in the NCAA Tournament. Coach Roland Thornqvist said his team is "hitting the ball the best we have all year" after they advanced to the quarterfinals for the 21st time in 22 years. Now, even though Thornqvist said it's the "kiss of death" to talk about winning the big one, the Gators are four matches away from their fifth national championship. "Each year I always say 'This Tennis is the best team I've ever been on. We can win it,"' said Benik, who along with Lolita Frangulyan became just the second UF class to finish their careers undefeated at home. "But this year it's just different. We've got seven players that can play anywhere in the lineup. "If it's not this year then I don't know. We should do it. We've just got to go play and get it." Even Benik admitted that when they play at home, she doesn't feel like anybody can beat them. Nobody has, either. UF (22-2) will take on Vanderbilt next in Tulsa, Okla., on Thursday. The Gators beat up on the Commodores (20-5) 5-2 in the regular season and then again 4-2 in the Southeastern Conference Tournament. "Can we win it?," Thornqvist said. "I think we can, but we don't specifically say that in the locker room." UF can certainly win it if the Gators continue their dominance in doubles play. They won the doubles point against the Tigers on Saturday and SEE WTENNIS, PAGE 18 Today's question: Which UF team will have the most postseason success? A. Softball B. Baseball C. Women's Tennis D.

Score knotted at three. Playing against Miami. And this time, if he lost, the door would've been opened even wider for the Hurricanes. On Jan. 29 in Coral Gables it came down to Corace and Miami's J.C. Whitner for the game-winning point, but Corace fell 6-3 in the deciding set, and UF had its first loss of the season. But on Sunday, against Miami in the second round of the NCAA Toumament, it came down to Corace again, and this time he came through. With the Hurricanes clinging to one point and hoping that Daniel Vallverdu could upset UF's Greg Ouellette in the No. 1 position, Corace came back from down 5-2 to beat Whitner 6-1, 7-6 (2). That win sent the Gators to the Round of 16 for the seventh-straight season. UF (17-7) will now play No. 7 Texas .,.,Friday in Tulsa, Okla. "He's shown me that his composure and maturity is a lot better and that he's improved," UF Coach Andy Jackson said of Corace Corace. "For Erik to close it out says a lot for us and says a lot for the guts of Miami." The elder classmen have certainly taken notice of Corace's "rowth throughout his freshman year. He's definitely learned a lot," senior Nestor Briceno said. "He's grown so much, and I'm so proud of him. He's someone people should look forward to watching in the coming years." For just a freshman, Corace has certainly had time to sit in.f the pressure cooker. ie said lie's been through four matches this season where it came down to him. "I got a little ahead of myself today in the second set and got down 5-2,but I kept fighting," Corace said. "It was windy, and I just thought to myself to just keep balls in play."

TUESDAY, MAY 13, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 19 UF earns top rank for first time, joins seven SEC teams in tournaSOFT, from page 17 "They walked me all weekend and to finally get another chance was awesome. I'm just glad I could deliver." Then it just kept on getting better for the.Gators as coach Tim Walton was named SEC Coach of the Year, and Nelson, who has 40 wins and 298 strikeouts on the season, won SEC Pitcher of the Year. On top of that Nelson, just a junior, has also been named a Top-10 finalist for National Player of the Year. "She's the player of the year in my-book," Walton said. "Take Stacey Nelson off this team and we're not as good. I don't think a lot of teams out there can say that." The Gators earned the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament and will host the first three rounds at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium, starting on Friday against Georgia Tech. Should UF advance in the tournament, the Gators would not have to play a game away from home until they made the trip to Oklahoma City, Okla., for Women's College World Series. This year's No. 1 ranking marks the first time the Gators have earned a top-10 seed in the program's history. UF is one of eight SEC to make the tournament field -the most of any conference in the nation. This is especially impressive considering an SEC school has never won the Women's College World Series, although the SEC has only been playing softball for 11 years. "It's awesome to be playing at home," said Walton, who's in his third season at UF.,"This is what our record is for. This is why you win games, so you can host a regional." Murphy may have put ilbest about this year's UF squad, which has won 35 games in a row. "You knowit's Murphy's Law when you can go 25-3 in the conference and still end up second," Murphy said. "It could have gone either way, but just like it's been alyear Florida came out on top." Gators earn rare 5-0 win in first round against Navy with unusual calls "The last eight weeks the guy has been one from page 17 of the best players in the country," Jackson said. I felt confident, and I felt like he had a lot "Again today he was the best player on of pressure on him since I was the one that either team, and I thought his play was speccame back." tacular."

It was a much easier start to the tournament for the Gators as they throttled Navy on Saturday 5-0. Teams need only four points to secure a win, but UF was able to score the fifth in a rare play where Tyler Hochwalt's winning serve went up the same time as Briceno's. Since Briceno's ball was in play, it was allowed to stand and he beat out Jason Hill's score. "The Navy guy was a good sport," Briceno said. "It was fun kicking his butt." While the score doesn't indicate it, the Midshipmen did put up a tough fight in the doubles competition. Hochwalt and Geoffrey Barton just held off Hill and Nick Birger 8-6 for the doubles point. "They probably thought they could win until they lost the doubles," Jackson said. Added Briceno: "They were extremely tough in doubles. I think we underestimated them in doubles."
