Faculty, staff seek opportunities outside UF


BY ELIZABETH LEVA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Budget cuts are costing UF
something more valuable than $47
million - the university's promi-
nent faculty and staff members.
Some UF employees are leav-
ing Gainesville in search of more
stable administrations, better pay


and brighter futures.
Marc Hoit, UF's interim chief
information officer, will be one of
the first to go. He will join North
Carolina State University on Sept.
1.
When Hoit began his UF career
in 1984, he told his wife that if a
better career opportunity came up
somewhere else, he would take it.

He said he is heading north

Hoit said.
And he is not alone. Hoit said

Some local businesses think the
Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce's
economic stimulus plan is right on the
money.
Chamber members and their guests
doubled their money at the chamber's


Business Showcase on Thursday.
They paid $10 to receive $20 in $2 bills

The chamber distributed a total of
$8,000 in $2 bills designed to be spent lo-

Harsh winds couldn't
extinguish the flames blaz-
ing from a couple hundred
candlewicks at a Friday night
vigil held to honor victims
of an earthquake that hit the
Sichuan Province of China on
May 12.
The vigil, hosted by the
Friendship Association
of Chinese Students and
Scholars, a non-profit student
organization, took place at the
Reitz Union Amphitheater.
About 250 students, fac-
ulty and Gainesville residents
attended the ceremony and
observed 30 seconds of si-
lence to honor victims of the


earthquake, both living and
dead.
Since a 7.9-magnitude
earthquake struck the south-
west province of China May
12, the death toll has risen
to about 35,000, and about
245,000 people have been
injured.

Machen spoke to the crowd

heard a woman singing, but that
when he tried to look through her

Turlington lecture

halls get overhaul


By MAGGIE LAWRENCE
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF students returned for sum-
mer classes to a campus littered with
chain-link fences and abuzz with the
sounds of demolition.
Renovations to Turlington Hall
are under way: Three large lecture
halls at its lowest level - L-005, L-
007 and L-011 - will be completely
refurbished.
The renovation includes a com-
plete overhaul of carpets, ceilings
and wall finishes, and built-in chairs
and desks are being replaced, said
Jay Beckenbach, project manager.
"The place is being freshened
up," Beckenbach said.
The project, overseen by UF's
Physical Plant Division, should be
completed by July 31.
Because the lecture halls were
first built in the 1970s, the renova-
tions will include bringing the rooms
up to new building codes, such as
those outlined by the Americans
with Disabilities Act.
The rooms' air duct systems will


also be revamped, he said.
The $1.2 million set aside for the
project comes from UF's Office of
Academic Technology.
The overhaul will also include an
upgrade of the academic technolo-
gies in the lecture halls, such as new
computer projectors, he said.
"The place is being
freshened up."
Jay Beckenbach
project manager

Although the renovations will
replace the lecture halls' interiors,
the construction has also invaded
much of Turlington Plaza. The stag-
ing yard, used for parking and stor-
ing building materials, has already
caused a few problems.
Daniel Bishop, a linguistics ju-
nior, plays four square on the plaza
every Friday. Now, he must dodge
big trucks entering and leaving the
premises.
"It's severely limiting our space,"
Bishop said.


Local man charged with stabbing, killing Va. man


* VERBAL FIGHT LED TO INCIDENT
IN NORTHEAST GAINESVILLE.
A Gainesville man was charged with
stabbing and killing a Virginia man
with a knife Friday evening in northeast
Gainesville.
Bianco Antonio Johnson, 23, is being
held at the Alachua County Jail without


bond.
The victim, Jason Edward Cooper, 24,
later died at Shands AGH. He had been car-
rying a military ID.
The stabbing occurred around 8 p.m. at
the intersection of Northeast 17th Way and
Northeast 17th Place, which is just west of
Waldo Road.
After the two men got into a verbal fight,


Johnson ran into his house on Northeast
17th Way and got a large knife from his
kitchen drawer, according to

News said he then ran to the street
and stabbed Cooper in the
chest with the knife, the report said.
Officers with the Gainesville Police
Department's Tactical Impact Unit were


called to the scene, and witnesses said the
stabbing could have been the result of re-
marks made about a family member, said
Erica Doll of GPD's Public Information
Office. Johnson had run off after the stab-
bing took place, but officers brought him
back to the station where he implicated
himself in an interview, Doll said.

Former officer investigated


He left GPD May 9
By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Staff Writer

A Gainesville Police Department officer who
resigned May 9 remains part of an ongoing GPD
internal investigation.
John Robert Bostick, 34, voluntarily separat-
ed himself from GPD while "being investigated
for violation of section 943.13(4), F.S., or viola-
tion of moral character standards," according to
police documents.
Because the investigation is ongoing, few
details have been made available.
Bostick has 17 incident investigations on his
GPD record, seven of which were allegations
that were unfounded or not sustained.
Those violations include unauthorized ve-
hicle pursuit, violation of overtime pay and
unbecoming conduct.
Two incidents involved suspension time.
In July 2005, Bostick damaged his assigned
patrol car and didn't document the $500 worth
of damage until Aug. 10, 2005, the investigative
report said.
Bostick's crash report stated that an un-


known car struck his parked patrol car before
fleeing the scene.
However, Bostick later admitted that while
driving the patrol car, he struck a yellow cement
pole, according to his September 2005 apology
letter.
He received a 90-hour suspension without
pay and lost 180 days of take-home car privi-
leges.
In March 2006, Bostick got into
Local a "heated argument" with a 16-
News year-old during a trespass investi-
gation, police records stated.
Bostick called the 16-year-old a
"drug dealer" and said several times, "You ain't
sh- to me."
The juvenile had recorded the comments on
his cell phone, and Bostick received 10 hours
suspension without pay.
In a subsequent apology letter, Bostick wrote
that he had no explanation for his actions, and
the juvenile "just got underneath my skin."
Bostick was originally a 911 operator before
being hired as a GPD officer in January 2000.
He worked in District Two Operations be-
fore transferring last September to the Tactical
Impact Unit, which investigates violent crimes.


The Studio to move


A art studio in the Reitz Union
has packed up its paints and pot-
tery in preparation for a move to
the Reitz Union basement to save
money in light of budget cuts.
The Studio, previously located
on the ground floor of the Reitz
Union, closed May 2 and plans
to reopen in the Arts and Crafts
Center in the building's basement
on June 2.
Beth Waltrip, the Reitz Union's
director of student activities, said
the shuffle is due to a nearly $2
million cut to the Division of
Student Affairs budget.
"If we can move The Studio,
that opens floor space for addi-
tional retail stores," Waltrip said.
No decisions have been made
about The Studio's replacement.
The center will house some
events formerly managed by


The Studio, such as some leisure
courses and Gator Nights activi-
ties.
Julie English, program assistant
for the Leisure Course Program,
said the worst part about relocat-
ing is the loss of already scarce
foot traffic on the ground floor.
"If we can move The
Studio, that opens floor
space for additional retail
stores."
Beth Waltrip
Reitz Union director of student
activities

"I've had seniors say they
didn't even know we existed,"
English said.

UF ADMINISTRATION

Faculty call for more input | - I


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Staff Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

Members of UF's Faculty Senate called
for greater input over decisions about faculty
layoffs and department shake-ups during
the Senate's Thursday meeting.
Plans to reduce the budget by $47 million
required all UF departments and units to
propose 6 percent in cuts.
Since the May 5 announcement, some of
the cuts outlined in the proposal have incited
controversy between administrators and fac-
ulty who say their voices were not heard in
academic decisions.
As a result, the Senate passed a resolu-
tion that asks administrators to give faculty
members a "meaningful" chance to share
their views on significant changes to their
colleges.
Kyle Cavanaugh, senior vice president
for administration, took the place of UF
President Bernie Machen at the meeting.
Machen was on a fundraising trip.
Cavanaugh said staff members were
notified of layoffs Thursday, but it will be
another 30 days for faculty to get the news.
When Cavanaugh told senators he un-
derstood that plans submitted by each dean
had the endorsement of faculty within the
college, he was met with a flurry of shouted
"No's" and shaking heads from faculty
members in the room.
Joe Glover, interim dean of the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences, addressed accusa-
tions from several disgruntled CLAS faculty
members who said shared governance was
not considered in the cuts, which will result
in 10 faculty and 13 staff layoffs from CLAS.
Glover said because two of the college's
committees charged with finding solutions


for an almost $6 million cut stopped sev-
eral million dollars short; he was left with no
choice but to make cuts by himself.
"I would argue that there was ample op-
portunity for shared governance," Glover
said. "I believe the evidence is there."
Despite three doctorate-degree programs
in CLAS being saved from elimination, some
CLAS faculty still expressed frustration over
the cuts.
More than 30 members from the depart-
ments of zoology and botany attended the
meeting to urge administrators to reconsider
merging their units as outlined in CLAS'
budget-cutting proposal.
Because both programs
are nationally ranked,
professors argued that
combining them might di-
minish their prestige.
Korean lecturer Kyung-
Eun Yoon, one of six
faculty members from the
Department of African
Cavanaugh and Asian Languages and
Literature slated to lose their jobs, said some
of the professors who will probably be laid
off are struggling with their new and fast-
approaching realities as they do research in
foreign countries.
"We are feeling really alienated right now,
and we are feeling really abandoned in this
situation," Yoon said.
Not all faculty members have as much
disdain for their unit's process for coping
with cuts, however.
Elizabeth Bolton, a UF family, youth and
community sciences professor, said budget
cuts were discussed at every faculty meeting
and through e-mail long before they were
announced.
"It is painful, but it can be done," Bolton
said.

Marital Bliss

California ruling sets

example worth following
Last week, the California Supreme Court handed down
a historic ruling regarding one of the most divisive is-
sues of our time: gay marriage.
In a sweeping decision that is sure to provide plenty of
election year fodder for political pugilists on both sides, the
California court declared marriage to be a fundamental right
for all citizens, regardless of sexual preference.
Chief Justice Ronald George wrote that "in contrast to
earlier times, our state now recognizes that an individual's
capacity to establish a loving and long-term committed rela-
tionship with another person and responsibly to care for and
raise children does not depend upon the individual's sexual
orientation."
The decision overturns a voter-approved constitutional
amendment and makes the Golden State just the second state
to provide all of its citizens with the right to marry - the other
being Massachusetts, which did so back in 2004.
While California ventures into a brave new world of
greater social equality, our state stands on the precipice of
descending (even further) into the dark ages.
This fall, Florida voters will be asked to decide whether a
ban on same-sex marriage should be added to the constitu-
tion via popular referendum.
If passed, Amendment 2 would restrict marriage to "the
union of one man and one woman as husband and wife."
Wait a minute. The Florida Legislature passed a ban on
gay marriage all the way back in 1997. Why the hell would
we need to pass a law that's already been codified?
While advocates of "family values" point to the ac-
tions of "activist judges" - such as those in California and
Massachusetts - as justification for fortifying Florida's ban
on same-sex marriage, we view the proposed amendment as
part of more insidious machinations.
In recent years, Republicans have used the issue of gay
marriage as a wedge issue in hopes of driving throngs of
social conservatives to the polls.
This strategy was instrumental in President Bush's re-
election in 2004, when 11 states placed constitutional amend-
ments prohibiting same-sex marriage on their respective bal-
lots. Conservative voters flocked to the polls four years ago
to ensure that a segment of their countrymen and women
would be discriminated against. The measures overwhelm-
ingly passed in all 11 states.
Yet, even more than its utility as a Republican vote manu-
facturer, Amendment 2 has the added benefit (for conserva-
tives) of possibly abrogating benefits, such as health care,
altogether to members of Florida's homosexual community.
Unlike the progressive result in California, however,
Michigan's justices have chosen to roll back protections for
gays and lesbians.
Earlier this month, the Michigan Supreme Court ruled
that the state's ban on gay marriage also serves to prohibit
state and local governments from providing same-sex part-
ners benefits such as health care - benefits that heterosexu-
als freely enjoy.
The 2004 Michigan amendment isn't identical to
Amendment 2. Nevertheless, the Michigan court ruling has
raised concerns among gay rights activists that a similar out-
come could result here if Floridians approve this draconian
and redundant measure in the fall.
We hail the California justices for their courage in the face
of the great wave of intolerance and ignorance that has pre-
vented most of the country from granting equal protection of
the laws to all its citizens. We hope our fellow Floridians will
see Amendment 2 for what it is: a blatant political subterfuge.
We would do well to follow the lead of California and reject
the politics of inequality.

Going green can b
Decided last week that, for the first time in my life,
I was ready to give in to peer pressure. Considering
the degree to which I harp on my family and friends
to turn the lights off and unplug appliances, I harbor a
pretty incriminating skeleton in my closet - I drive an
SUV.
To be fair, it's a small one.
But my fine ride of a beige 1999 GMC Jimmy is
enough to qualify me for hypocrite status.
For years, I've endured unending heckling on this
point, the disparity between my words and my. actions
a glaring point of contradiction. To ease my mind, I ra-
tionalized that I was way too broke to afford making a
switch. But with a bit of graduation money tucked away
- not to mention, in the face of $4-a-gallon gas at 16
miles per gallon - I finally decided my friends were
right.
It was time to put my money where my mouth was.
So I turned to my trusted friend Google, the omnipo-
tent source of information in my life, sure that after a
few hours searching I would be ready to sign a check
and drive off into the sunset, guilt-free.
But instead of winding up with a new car, what I
wound up with was a headache.
My first goal was high fuel economy, so I set my
sights on hybrid technology.
Now, I consider myself a simple Midwest girl. I don't
need a lot of bells and whistles or even power windows
for that matter. So I figured I would find a nice used
Prius, perhaps a little well-worn but still functional, no
problem.
Wrong.

than the one I have, that meant I
would pay three times as much as
I paid initially for my current vehicle. I was disheart-

But the more information I came across, the less sure
I was of what I was looking for.
Hybrids are nice, but maybe cost-prohibitive. And
getting kick-ass gas mileage is good, but what about
alternative fuel? If oil is really the source of our sins
overseas, maybe my money says more if I forget gas
altogether. Sure, ethanol is a crock, but what about
biodiesel?
Turns out that's tricky too.
At first glance it seems great, and people are cer-
tainly jumping on the bandwagon quickly.
According to the National Biodiesel Board, sales per
gallon for the fuel increased 500-fold between 1999 and
2006.
But there's more to it: Making a car biodiesel-ready
involves complicated technical conversions way be-

my tire pressure a shining achievement.
By the end of my afternoon spent searching, instead
of feeling satisfied and eco-savvy, I felt hurt, confused
and ready for some serious antihypertensives.

tious life choices, even the best of intentions didn't get
me to where I wanted to go.

Guest Column

Students beware: Brain drain will lower value of UF degree


Brace yourselves, we're in for a brain
drain.
As you have probably heard by now,
UF is preparing to lay off 14 faculty members
and more than 100 staff as part of President
Bernie Machen's proposed $47 million budget
reduction. When coupled with the $22 million
reduction made in October, UF's budget for
the coming academic year will be a whopping
$69 million less than this year's.
As a result of the cuts, the faculty members
who are staying are losing colleagues and
collaborators, and departments are stretching
their support staff. Meanwhile, amid budget
squeezes and salary freezes, five faculty mem-
bers from the College of Education have left
to take other jobs this year. Eight more retired.
None of them will be replaced.
A similar brain drain is happening at the
University of Wisconsin. This school year, it
retained only 63 percent of its faculty who re-
ceived offers from other schools. Budget cuts
similar to those proposed for UF are largely to
blame for faculty leaving for greener pastures.
The process of hiring professors is some-


Elizabeth Hillaker thing like sports
Speaking Out recruiting. If , re-
Speaking Out sources dwindle
at one university,
other, wealthier institutions swoop in to offer
larger paychecks and other incentives to top
professors so they'll switch teams.
UF ranks in the bottom third for faculty
salaries among its peer institutions, and this
presents more affluent institutions with the
opportunity to steal away top professors. The,
cost of living is lower in Gainesville, and UF
has wonderful facilities. But money talks.
And it's not just the money. Now, more than
ever, faculty members are told to do more with
less. On top of teaching and scholarship, they
are encouraged to secure grants from outside
sources to help make up for the budget deficit.
A record $583 million in research money was
given to UF faculty members this year. With
faculty members leaving or being laid off and
many departments being forced into hiring
freezes, the strain will only build.
Why should we care? Regardless of what
the billboards say, The Gator Nation is not ev-


erywhere. Employers will consider the value
of your degree. As faculty members leave, the
value of your education decreases.
* Case in point: UF slipped from a five-way
tie for No. 13 to No. 17 in the most recent U.S.
News & World Report rankings. UF's fall in
the rankings reflects staggering faculty-to-
student ratios and poor faculty resources. The
average faculty salary at UF is $109,300 for full
professors, $73,000 for associate professors
and $62,500 for assistant professors. Faculty
members did not receive raises last year.
However, last fall, Machen received a
$275,000 bonus to his $416,162 salary for meet-
ing goals in his contract. While the bonus came
from the UF Foundation - the fundraising arm
of the university - instead of taxpayer money,
it was still in poor taste.
Machen has guaranteed faculty raises for
promotions and is working on a program to
pay some faculty members merit-based raises.
But meager pay increases won't compensate
for decreased support staff and continued
pressure on faculty to do more with less. Even
the nearly $200 million raised for faculty sup-


port through part of the university's fundrais-
ing campaign will not be enough to prevent
some of our top professors from leaving.
UF should stop obsessing about rankings
and image and should instead focus on the
people who make UF work. Try asking them
what they need - other than money - to stay.
Eventually, it won't only be professors leaving
but top students as well.
UF Spokesman Steve Orlando has recom-
mended students write to their legislators to
request more funding for education.
The money legislators give UF is compa-
rable to its peer institutions, Orlando said.
But their refusal to let our universities raise
tuition more than 15 percent per year limits
our ability to cope with Florida's economic
downturn and stem the impending brain
drain.
Budget cuts don't happen in a vacuum, and
students should not just brush this off because
they will leave UF in a couple of years. You
will have your degree for the rest of your life.
Don't you want it to be worth something?

Clinton should drop bid to count Florida, Michigan primaries


There are seedy things afoot in
the 2008 presidential election.
Back in the day, it was
decided throughout the land that
Florida and Michigan would not
count toward the delegate numbers
in the Democratic primary.
By now, we all probably know
the story behind it. The Florida
Democratic Party and the
Democratic National Convention
decided to have a contest to see who
could urinate the farthest. The result
of the botched moving of the pri-


mary date was Florida not having
any delegates counted when the big
convention happens in Denver.
So that was that. Florida and
Michigan are scratches. The pri-
mary votes were nothing but a
glorified high school popularity
contest. Neither Barack Obama nor
Hillary Clinton did any campaign-
ing in Florida, and Obama didn't
even have his name on the ballot in
Michigan.
It is no good that it turned out
that way. Democratic voters in

Jeffrey Riley Florida and

deserve the
chance to se-

idea of something as trivial as the
date of the primary being the reason
to throw out votes is idiotic, but that
is beside the point now.

the quest to perfect the process of
democracy.


Or is it?
Clinton is trying pretty hard to
get the delegates counted from the
two neglected states.
Why is she digging up the votes?
Is it because she cares so much about
the hearts of the voters in Florida
and Michigan and sheds a woeful
tear when she thinks about residents
not getting a fair say? Maybe.
It probably has more to
do with the fact that Clinton
won both states in a landslide.

SUF team simulates hurricanes


By VICTORIA WINKLER
Alligator Contributing Writer

It starts with a roar.
The dimly lit, one-room
house trembles as the wind and
rain pound relentlessly.
Water leaks in through cracks
in the bare wooden floor.
The solitary window bends
inward like a bubble just about
to pop.
Outside, the sun shines.
On Monday afternoon, the
students, faculty and staff of
UF's hurricane research team
demonstrated their mobile hur-
ricane simulator at the Powell
Family Structures and Materials
Laboratory on UF's Eastside
Campus.
A block of eight fans, each
five feet tall and powered by
four external marine diesel
engines, simulated the effects
of a Category 3 hurricane on a
model of a one-story home.
UF researchers use the simu-
lator to test how well different
building materials and tech-
niques hold up against wind
and rain at speeds of about 120


mph, similar to those experi-
enced in some of Florida's past
hurricane seasons.
Engines capable of a com-
bined 2,800 horsepower drive
water to hydraulic-powered
fans, and tubes spit water from
a 5,000-gallon tank to simulate
wind-driven rain.

"Fortunately, we have a
lot of talented students
at UF, and we were able
to harness their creative
abilities."
Forrest Masters
UF assistant professor of civil
and coastal engineering


The entire machine is mobile,
so it can be tested on real homes
donated for hurricane research.
The simulator is about 10 feet
tall and about 20 feet long.
The effort was spearheaded
by Forrest Masters, assistant
professor of civil and coastal
engineering at UF, and took the
hurricane research team about
eight months and $500,000 to

of the future growth of the univer-
sity," Hoit said. "That has changed
everything."
David Figlio, UF economics
professor, will be moving from
his endowed chair position at UF
to another one at Northwestern
University this fall.
Although Figlio will technically
be on sabbatical from UF, he said
he is almost certain he will stay
at Northwestern once the year is
complete.
Figlio said he had received many
offers during his decade of employ-
ment at UF but never considered
accepting any until now.
"I always thought the future
at UF looked sufficiently good,"


Figlio said. "But now UF's future is
sufficiently uncertain, so I owe it to
myself and my family to reconsider
other options."
While Figlio will receive a
higher salary from Northwestern
University, he said what he values
most is a uni-
UF versity's future

Academics changed.
"When a uni-
versity faces budgetary issues over
a couple years, it jeopardizes its
ability to hire outstanding faculty
members," Figlio said. "And when
a university can't hire on the level it
needs to, it's going to tip."
Chris Slobogin, UF law profes-
sor, will also end his 25-year career
at UF to begin a new professor-
ship at Vanderbilt University Law


School.
"The cuts will certainly make
leaving UF easier," Slobogin
said. "And they will certainly make
it harder for UF to compete with
other schools, both public and pri-
vate."
These employees, who an-
nounced their resignation as a re-
sult of budget cuts, said they know
of others who have threatened to do
the same.
Kyle Cavanaugh, senior vice
president for administration, said
he understands that there are severe
consequences to the budget cuts.
"Clearly the current budget situ-
ation is one that has all of us con-
cerned about our ability to recruit
and retain faculty," Cavanaugh
said. "We need to commit to having
a strong focus in that area."


Chamber hopes to boost local economy

Christensen said now the chamber will wait and
see how long it takes the $2 bills to circulate through-
out the local economy.
He said a dollar invested locally makes its rounds
more than a dollar invested out of town, and it is
more important than ever to invest locally.
"I'd venture to guess that 99 percent of people's
purchases could be made in Alachua County if they
just took a second-and looked," he said.
At the showcase, local businesses offered special
discounts to chamber members to keep the bills in
circulation.
Scott Costello, publisher of Home: Living in the
Heart of Florida magazine, offered advertising dis-
counts to chamber members.


Glaeser Realty dished out $50 in $2 bills during
hourly drawings at the showcase between 4 p.m. and
7 p.m.
Realtor Mitch Glaeser said, "I don't know of any
chamber in the country that is taking such an active
role and trying to put a positive
spin on some pretty tough economic
times."
Wayne Wallace, director of UF's
Career Resource Center, said the
state of the national economy is
mixed.
ll Issues such as the rising cost of
energy and the implications of the
declining housing market negatively affect consumer
confidence, Wallace said.

he said.

Masters said the team plans
to test different types of wall,
exterior finishes, windows and
installation procedures for their
effectiveness in preventing wa-
ter damage to homes.
Every project has its chal-
lenges, Masters said, and the
simulator was no exception.
"We started with only a set of
plans and instruction manuals,"
he said.
"Fortunately, we have a lot
of talented students at UF, and
we were able to harness their
creative abilities."
George Fernandez, a civil
and coastal engineering stu-
dent, works on simulators used
in UF's hurricane research.
A shingle shooter and a tile
launcher test the damage done
to pieces of roof material pulled
loose during violent storms.
The shingle shooter can
send a square shingle flying at
70 mph, and the tile-launcher,
roughly the size of a cannon,
projects clay roof tiles that dent
steel shutters used to protect
windows.
"Anything that breaks stuff
is right up our alley," Fernandez
said with a smile.

Minority party


avoids scare

By ELIZABETH LEVA
Alligator Contributing Writer

A dispute at a UF Student Senate committee meeting
Sunday left the Gator Party and the Orange and Blue Party
pointing fingers over job responsibility.
Sen. Eric Wolf submitted his resignation from the Orange
and Blue Party on Friday to become an independent senator.
In doing so, Wolf brought the Orange and Blue's roster down
to seven members.
In order for a minority party to have a senator on the
Replacement and Agenda Committee, it must have at least
eight members. The committee is responsible for assigning
senators to each of Senate's five commit-

tees.
Wolf said he was unaware his resigna-
tion would have caused ineligibility for
the party and re-registered with Orange


and Blue on Monday.
"The minority party deserves a voice," Wolf said. "So, of
course, I changed my mind."
But the process leading up to the potential party crisis was
not easily dismissed.
Sen. Frank Bracco, an independent who is serving as a
replacement for an Orange and Blue senator during summer
A, said the party's members were unaware of Wolf's resigna-
tion and their ineligibility to have a member on the committee
until Sunday's meeting.
"There were a couple tense moments when we thought the
world was going to come to an end," Bracco said.
Orange and Blue Party leader Sam Miorelli said it was
Senate President Kellie Dale's responsibility to alert the party
of its situation when she learned of it Friday afternoon.
Her notice would have allowed the Orange and Blue Party
a chance to solve its issue, Miorelli said.
Miorelli said Dale deliberately withheld information from
the Orange and Blue party to revoke its representation on the
committee. But Dale said members of the Orange and Blue
Party have only themselves to blame.
"I'm not sure where their internal communication broke
down to make them unaware of the situation," Dale said.
"But it's their responsibility to know what is going on within
their own party - not ours."


Locals try out for 'Amazing Race'


By CHANTELLE MARCELLE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Watching the recent season
finale of "Survivor," Donna Smith
discovered a way to achieve reality
stardom herself.
A commercial advertised a cast-
ing call in Gainesville for season 14
of another one of her favorite reality
shows, "The Amazing Race." The
show features teams of two who
race around the world completing
challenges as quickly as possible.
Smith, a Student Health Care
Center pharmacist, immediately
knew her partner would be her boy-
friend, Brent Taylor.
"We do everything together,"
Smith, 34, said. "We're like adven-
ture partners. We travel together all
the time. We live together, and we're
best friends."
Taylor said he wasn't as excited
about auditioning for the show as
his girlfriend, but he wants to sup-
port her dream. The couple sent an
e-mail to television station WGFL-
CBS4 and received a scheduled time
to appear at the Saturday casting
call, which was held at the station.
Lisa Stoessel, creative services
coordinator for CBS4, said the
casting call was advertised in TV
commercials for about two weeks,
and the response was tremendous.
However, only the first 100 pairs to
register on the Web site were inter-
viewed.
Hopefuls were given two min-
utes to explain to a video camera
why they should be chosen, Stoessel
said. Applicants will find out if
they made it to the next round in
August.
Smith said she is confident about
her interview.
"We just tried to make ourselves
be presented as we are-normal,
everyday people," she said.
The couple has not yet discussed
a strategy to win if they are picked,

Taylor said, but they are more con-

than winning the $1 million grand
prize.
"I think the experience is more of

Gators avenge loss with power surge

Kim Waleszonia takes a practice swing before batting in the Gators'
3-0 win against UCF. She hit two home runs during the weekend.


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

For the first time all season, the road forked in front
of the Gators.
A path leading each player home for the summer
stood opposite a road leading to the goal they've worked
so hard for all season - the Women's College World
Series.
Unexpectedly, it took two games against Central
Florida Sunday to determine which route the team
would follow.
Luckily for the Gators, they chose the latter and will
now play California in Super Regional Action starting
on Friday.
"It was a pretty good two games
between two great teams, two great
pitchers and two great fan bases," UF
coach Tim Walton said.
In the first game of the eventual
Softball doubleheader Sunday, UCF (49-20)
stunned No. 1 UF (65-3) by defeating
the heavy favorites in eight innings 1-0.
For seven innings, a Southeastern Conference
All-Conference selection and a Conference USA All-
Conference selection dueled their way to a 0-0 tie.
In extra innings, Knights senior pitcher Allison Kime
put up yet another scoreless frame, giving her team a
chance to win the game in the bottom of the eighth.
Tiffany Lane and Marquita Council lead off the inning
with back-to-back singles. UCF's best hitter, Breanne
Javier, advanced both the runners on a sacrifice bunt.
Walton brought all nine players into a huddle on the
mound, before junior Stacey Nelson got Hillary Barrow
to pop up to catcher Kristina Hilberth for the second out
of the inning.
Appropriately, the next batter to come to the plate
was Kime, who the Knights do not designate a hitter for
as most teams do for their pitcher.
With a 2-2 count, Kime chopped a pitch just over

Disappointing loss for team, seniors


STAFF REPORT
Recently, it's been the Gators who
have crushed the championship hopes
of the Bruins - twice defeating the cross-
country foe in basketball Final Fours.
The UF women's tennis team (24-3)
failed to follow suit Monday when No.
7 UCLA (23-5) came out on the winning
end of a 4-2 decision.
"It's disappointing to lose, but we can
hold our heads up high knowing that we
prepared and did everything we could
have to get ready for this tournament,"
sophomore Megan Alexander said. "We
left everything we had on the courts
today."

The Gators' No. 2-ranked tandem of
Whitney Benik and Csilla Borsanyi lost
in an upset to the Bruins No. 56 duo
of Elizabeth Lumpkin and Stephanie
Wetmore.
When Julia Cohen and Anastasia
Revzina lost to No. 26 Alex McGoodwin


and Yasmin Schnack it marked the first
time all season the Gators lost in the No.
3 doubles position.
UF had posted a perfect 25-0 record,
including a 21-0 record by Cohen and
Revzina.
"I thought we handled (losing the
doubles point) well," UF coach Roland
Thomqvist said. "We thought we would
have the advantage physically if the
match went into the fourth hour because
of the heat. We made a run, but losing the
doubles point is not something we've
had to deal with this year, but I thought
we did the best we could."

UF No. 3


SEC seed

By SHANNON McCARTHY
Alligator Staff Writer
smccarthy@alligator.org

Perhaps Brandon McArthur was be-
ing prophetic when he changed his bat-
ting music for this past weekend's series
against then-No. 19 Vanderbilt.
In the words of Gainesville's favorite
son Tom Petty, the senior first baseman
and the Gators showed they won't back
down.
That was the theme of the weekend,
and in Saturday's victory in particular,
as the Gators swept Vanderbilt and
secured the No. 3 seed in this week's
Southeastern Conference Tournament.
UF mounted come-
back after comeback
to win 13-12 on Jon
Townsend's two-out,
walk-off single in
the 11th inning. The
Gators will take on
the Commodores once
Figueroa again Wednesday in
the first round of the tournament in-
Hoover, Ala.
Cole Figueroa and Josh Adams sin-
gled to put runners on first and second
with two outs in the bottom of the 11th.
Townsend, one of the players honored
before the game on Senior Day, drove a
breaking ball into left field.
Figueroa motored home from second
base, dove head-first across the plate
with the winning run, and sent up a
cloud of dust and a wave of elated team-
mates who spilled out of the dugout to
mob the second baseman at home plate
before charging toward Townsend at
first base.
"We never got nervous," said
Figueroa, who was named the SEC
Player of the Week. "Nobody tried to
do too much. Everyone just tried to get
on base and get to the next guy. Bryson
[Barber] and B-Mac (McArthur) came
up with big hits [Thursday]. Today, Jon
came up with the big hit. It's all about
getting the right guy up at the right time

Gators edge Commodores in weekend full of firsts


Nelson pitches shut-

out in clinching win

SOFTBALL, from page 17

Nelson's outstretched glove.
Second baseman Aja Paculba tried to back hand the
ball, but it kicked off her glove and Lane scored the
winning run from third base.
"We weren't too down," junior Kim Waleszonia
said. "We knew we had to come back and make some
better adjustments at the plate."
The two teams switched dugouts and after a half an
hour break, it was Nelson against Kime for the third
time in two days.
UF's offense jumped on Kime in the first inning and
took a 3-0 lead.
In the second inning, the 5-foot-4-inch leadoff hitter,
who had one home run all season, blasted a pitch over
the right field wall, making it a 4-0 score.
With blood in the water, a newly relaxed Gators
offense delivered the final blow to the Knights' upset
hopes.
Once again, Waleszonia took Kime deep, for a
three-run blast. UF would score six runs in that fourth
inning, and suddenly the game was out of reach.
Nelson was unflinching inside the circle, allowing
just one base runner - an infield single - on the way
to her second shutout of UCF in three games.
In getting to the championship game, UF defeated
Georgia Tech 7-2 Friday night, and UCF 3-0 Saturday
afternoon, earning the flexibility to lose the first of two
games on Sunday.


BASE, from page 17

and coming through."
For the Gators, two outs is more
often than not the right time to come
through. UF scored 17 of its 26 runs
this weekend with two outs, 10 of its
13 runs on Saturday.
"We came out this weekend with
more intensity, a little more passion
playing the game," said Adams,
who was 3-for-6 with 3 RBIs in the
series finale. "We knew this was our
last weekend at home and wanted to
leave the fans with something good.
We just gave it our all out there this
weekend. We're all out there playing
for each other."
Saturday was the first time all


season UF has been able to celebrate
an extra-innings win or a walk-off
win. It was a fitting way to cap off
a. thrilling weekend that saw other
firsts, too.
"We came out this weekend
with more intensity, a little
more passion playing the
game"
Josh Adams
UF third baseman

Thursday night the Gators rallied
from a 6-4 deficit in the eighth inning
on a pair of two-out, two-run homers
from seniors Barber and McArthur to
secure their first late-inning come-
from-behind victory. UF had been

No. 8 Riza Zalameda, the Gators were able to make a push
in singles.
Alexander and Revzina both recorded 6-4, 6-3 victories
to even the score at 2-2.
Benik dropped what would be the final singles
match of her career, falling 6-3, 6-4 to the Bruins' Andrea
Remynse.
Freshman Marrit Boonstra was unable to hold off
Lumpkin who sealed the match for UCLA with a 6-4, 2-6,
6-2 victory.


The NCAA semifinal loss to the Bruins ended the
Gators season and the careers of Benik and Lolita
Frangulyan.
. "What a career they ended today, three
NCAA final fours, three SEC champion-
ships," Thornqvist said of the seniors. "I
know that they are terribly disappointed
Tennis here, but they should be very, very proud
of what they've accomplished.
"They have represented the University of Florida, their
teammates and the coaching staff in a first-class manner
and we're certainly going to miss them."

Women's golf seeks first national title since 1986


* THE GATORS HAVE JUST ONE
SENIOR IN THEIR LINEUP.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org
Jill Briles-Hinton saw this coming since
last year.
For a team that had never won an NCAA
Regional before, you wouldn't think a ragtag
group with just three seniors - and only one
of them that was in the lineup - would win
their first regional crown.
But the No. 4 Gators with one senior, one


junior and three freshmen did win their first
ever regional title last weekend and now are
among the favorites headed into the NCAA
Championships, which starts today in
Albuquerque, N.M.
It didn't take long for Briles-Hinton to
realize what this team was capable of, either.
As soon as Jessica Yadloczky and 16-year-
old Hannah Yun announced they were
Gainesville-bound, Briles-Hinton knew she
had a championship-caliber team.
The freshmen have backed up what Briles-
Hinton saw in recruiting them, too, as Yun
helped seal the regional victory with a birdie
on the par-5 18th and Yadloczky finished tied
for 10th overall and was UF's second best


finisher.
After her first collegiate match at the
Mason Rudolph back in September, Yadloczky
finished ahead of eight All-Americans.
Yadloczky is ranked 15th in
Golfweek's Individual Ratings
Index and Yun is 22nd.
"They've brought spice,"
Briles-Hinton said of the fresh-
Golf men. "They've brought a huge
competition and desire and
determination."
The Gators haven't been named national
champs since 1986, which means even the
team's elder statesman Tiffany Chudy was
still in diapers. But now UF has its best chance


in awhile.
And winning it all certainly hasn't been a
taboo subject.
"You can talk about it," Briles-Hintorsaid.
"They know they can win. You also have to
talk about how to go about winning it. There's
no problem with talking about it as long as
you talk about how you're going to do it."
While the Gators as a program aren't a
stranger to the national scene - they finished
6th overall in 2006 - this year's team has
some traits that past teams have lackecL-.
"They have some fortitude," she said.
"They don't quit. They withstand adversity,
and they just don't quit. They've given them-
selves their best chance to win."


UF MEN'S GOLF

Jr. Horsche! rallies team to fourth-place at regionals


STAFF REPORT
On a day when the scoring
conditions were less than optimal
at the Ohio State Scarlet Course,
Billy Horschel stepped up when
his team needed him the most.
After suffering a sub-par day
on Friday, Horschel rebounded
brilliantly. He tied for the low-
est round of the day with a 1-
under 70 to help the No. 6 UF
men's golf team secure an NCAA
Championships appearance with a


share of fourth place at the NCAA
Central Regional on Saturday.
"It wasn't really pretty but we
got it done," UF coach Buddy
Alexander said. "Obviously, there
was a very tough golf course out
there today. It was a tough day to
play and really windy We were
where we needed to oe all day
long.
"We get another shot at it. I
keep waiting for us to have a big
event, so maybe we are saving the
best for last."


Horschel finished in eighth
place with his performance
Saturday, which put him at 6-over
219 overall. The
top 10 finish was
his sixth of the
season and 22nd
of his career,
moving him into
a tie for fifth in
UF history with
Alexander former Gators
and current PGA Tour players
Dudley Hart and Brian Gay.


"Billy stepped up big time for
us, which. is what All-Americans
do," Alexander said. "He really
carried us through today. It was
nice to see Billy bounce back after
his finish yesterday that put us in a
tough spot."
The junior carded two birdies
and 15 pars through his first 17
holes. He gave a stroke back on the
par-4 18th hole with his only bo-
gey, but in the end he leapt up the
standings from a tie for 37th back.
Two other Gators finished in

Gators season ends in Tulsa


* UF COULD NOT RECOVER
AFTER LOSING DOUBLES.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

It's never easy when a success-
ful season comes to a bitter end.
On Friday, UF completed its
finafinatch when the No. 9 team
in the nation fell to No. 7 Texas in
Tulsa, Okla.
"They certainly would be
one of the best teams in the
[Southeastern Conference]," coach
Andy Jackson said.
No small compliment when
considering the SEC boasts four of
the top ten schools in the nation.
The Gators advanced to the
Round of 16 for the seventh
straight season, joining Baylor,
UCLA and Illinois as the only
teams able to make such a claim.
The momentum favored Texas
from the very beginning. The
Longhorns defeated UF quickly to
take the doubles point.


The No. 53 doubles team in
the nation, Luis Diaz Barriga
and Miguel Reyes Varela, nar-
rowly came out on top against the
Gators' Nestor Briceno and Alex
Lacroix in an 8-6 decision.
While doubles play is decided
first, Jackson downplayed the im-
portance of taking the first point
when singles play potentially
counts for six.
"In college tennis a little gets
made into a lot
there," he said. "I
think that most
of the time, the
teams get a little
TenniS carried away with
putting stock into
one point."
The quantitative gravity of
winning the doubles point does
not add up to a whole lot, but the
confidence Texas gained in sweep-
ing UF undoubtedly set the tone
for singles play.
"You could say we were a little
bit off kilter," Jackson said.
Courts three, four and six
were the first to finish under the


hot sun, with different matchups
yielding the same results. Corrie,
Barriga and Varela again scored
points for the Longhorns, defeat-
ing the Gators' Lacroix, Dedamo
and Erik Corace, respectively.
Before seniors Ouellette and
Briceno could complete a third set
to score points in their last tourna-
ment wearing the Orange and
Blue, the match was over.
Texas 4, UF 0.
The only seniors on a team that
played five freshmen in its final
match were understandably emo-
tional with the outcome.
"They were really upset be-
cause they felt like, along with me,
that we really could do something
at this tournament," Jackson said.
Despite the disappointing re-
sult, Jackson acknowledged that
the experience would only help
his young squad in the future.
"It sets the table to be able to go
further next year," he said. "We'll
be less awed by the occasion. We
would like to have a better taste
in our mouth after the last match
next year."


UF gets 2nd, 4th


STAFF REPORT

Sometimes even your best
just isn't good enough.
After entering the final day
of the Southeastern Conference
Championships with an 18-
point lead over Arkansas, the
UF women's track and field
team was unable to hold on to
win the team title.
The No. 13 women finished
the weekend in second place,
despite having three indi-
vidual wins on the final day of
competition.
LSU won the title by post-
ing 131 points on the final day.
"They came in here with the
goal of winning the meet, and
even though we were beaten
by a better team, they per-
formed admirably," UF coach


Mike Holloway said.
The men, who were ranked
No. 3 nationally heading
into the weekend, didn't fare
much better. Despite being
the favorite,
and the high-
est-ranked
SEC team at
the start of
the meet, the
Gators were
only able to
Holloway race their
way to a fourth-place finish in
the team standings.
The best performance of
the meet on the men's side
came from the 4x400 meter
relay team, whose season best
time of 3:04.75 was less than
two tenths of a second behind
champion Kentucky.

TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2008 Faculty, staff seek opportunities outside UF BY ELIZABETH LEVA Alligator Contributing Writer Budget cuts are costing UF something more valuable than $47 million -the university's prominent faculty and staff members. Some UF employees are leaving Gainesville in search of more stable administrations, better pay and brighter futures. Marc Hoit, UF's interim chief information officer, will be one of the first to go. He will join North Carolina State University on Sept. 1. When Hoit began his UF career in 1984, he told his wife that if a better career opportunity came up somewhere else, he would take it. For 24 years, the best opporHota NC State. tunity had been at UF. But times have changed. Hoit will leave to become information technology vice president and chief information officer at He said he is heading north because of the toll budget cuts are taking on the UF community. "The shake-up in the administration made this offer attractive," Hoit said. And he is not alone. Hoit said universities looking to hire are jumping at the chance to employ UF faculty and staff members who were not ready to leave before now. He said he has heard a number of UF employees say they would leave if the right opportunity came their way -conversation he did not hear three years ago, he added.

Chamber members and their guests doubled their money at the chamber's Business Showcase on Thursday. They paid $10 to receive $20 in $2 bills marked with the chamber's logo. The chamber distributed a total of $8,000 in $2 bills designed to be spent locally. "We got a lot of blank stares and 'Are you serious?'-type comments," said chamber President Brent Christensen. "We really want this to be a shot in the arm of the economy." Brent Christensen chamber president The purpose of the "Pay the 2s Forward" economic stimulus plan is to demonstrate the impact chamber members have on the local economy, Christensen said. "We really want this to be a shot in the arm of the economy," he said. The point of the economic stimulus plan lies in reusing the bills, which demonstrates the power of localized resources and revenues, Wallace said.

By JENNIFER WALKER Alligator Contributing Writer Harsh winds couldn't extinguish the flames blazing from a couple hundred candlewicks at a Friday night vigil held to honor victims of an earthquake that hit the Sichuan Province of China on May 12. The vigil, hosted by the Friendship Association of Chinese Students and Scholars, a non-profit student organization, took place at the Reitz Union Amphitheater. About 250 students, faculty and Gainesville residents attended the ceremony and observed 30 seconds of silence to honor victims of the earthquake, both living and dead. Since a 7.9-magnitude earthquake struck the southwest province of China May 12, the death toll has risen to about 35,000, and about 245,000 people have been injured. UF President Bernie Machen spoke to the crowd beside a large On heart illuminat'i ed by individual white candles placed front and center of the amphitheater. "We grieve with them," Machen said.

TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2008 0 ALLIGATOR, 3 ON CAMPUS Turlington lecture halls get overhaul By MAGGIE LAWRENCE Alligator Contributing Writer UF students returned for summer classes to a campus littered with chain-link fences and abuzz with the sounds of demolition. Renovations to Turlington Hall are under way: Three large lecture halls at its lowest level -L-005, L007 and L-011 -will be completely refurbished. The renovation includes a complete overhaul of carpets, ceilings and wall finishes, and built-in chairs and desks are being replaced, said Jay Beckenbach, project manager. "The place is being freshened up," Beckenbach said. The project, overseen by UF's Physical Plant Division, should be completed by July31. Because the lecture halls were first built in the 1970s, the renovations will include bringing the rooms up to new building codes, such as those outlined by the Americans with Disabilities Act. The rooms' air duct systems will also be revamped, he said. The $1.2 million set aside for the project comes from UF's Office of Academic Technology. The overhaul will also include an upgrade of the academic technologies in the lecture halls, such as new computer projectors, he said. "The place is being freshened u p." Jay Beckenbach project manager Although the renovations will replace the lecture halls' interiors, the construction has also invaded much of Turlington Plaza. The staging yard, used for parking and storing building materials, has already caused a few problems. Daniel Bishop, a linguistics junior, plays four square on the plaza every Friday. Now, he must dodge big trucks entering and leaving the premises. "It's severely limiting our space," Bishop said. Local man charged with stabbing, killing Va. man N VERBAL FIGHT LED TO INCIDENT IN NORTHEAST GAINESVILLE. A Gainesville man was charged with stabbing and killing a Virginia man with a knife Friday evening in northeast Gainesville. Bianco Antonio Johnson, 23, is being held at the Alachua County Jail without bond. The victim, Jason Edward Cooper, 24, later died at Shands AGH. He had been carrying a military ID. The stabbing occurred around 8 p.m. at the intersection of Northeast 17th Way and Northeast 17th Place, which is just west of Waldo Road. After the two men got into a verbal fight, Johnson ran into his house on Northeast 17th Way and got a large knife from his kitchen drawer, according to r his arrest report. Johnson later News said he then ran to the street and stabbed Cooper in the chest with the knife, the report said. Officers with the Gainesville Police Department's Tactical Impact Unit were called to the scene, and witnesses said the stabbing could have been the result of remarks made about a family member, said Erica Doll of GFD's Public Information Office. Johnson had run off after the stabbing took place, but officers brought him back to the station where he implicated himself in an interview, Doll said. -APRIL DUDASH During the past month, four of The Independent Florida Alligator news racks have been.

4, ALLIGATOR E TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2008 Former officer investigated He left GPD May 9 By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Staff Writer A Gainesville Police Department officer who resigned May 9 remains part of an ongoing GPD internal investigation. John Robert Bostick, 34, voluntarily separated himself from GPD while "being investigated for violation of section 943.13(4), F.S., or violation of moral character standards," according to police documents. Because the investigation is ongoing, few details have been made available. Bostick has 17 incident investigations on his GPD record, seven of which were allegations that were unfounded or not sustained. Those violations include unauthorized vehicle pursuit, violation of overtime pay and unbecoming conduct. Two incidents involved suspension time. In July 2005, Bostick damaged his assigned patrol car and didn't document the $500 worth of damage until Aug. 10, 2005, the investigative report said. Bostick's crash report stated that an unknown car struck his parked patrol car before fleeing the scene. However, Bostick later admitted that while driving the patrol car, he struck a yellow cement pole, according to his September 2005 apology letter. He received a 90-hour suspension without pay and lost 180 days of take-home car privileges. In March 2006, Bostick got into Locai a "heated argument" with a 16News year-old during a trespass investigation, police records stated. Bostick called the 16-year-old a "drug dealer" and said several times, "You ain't shto me." The juvenile had recorded the comments on his cell phone, and Bostick received 10 hours suspension without pay. In a subsequent apology letter, Bostick wrote that he had no explanation for his actions, and the juvenile "just got underneath my skin." Bostick was originally a 911 operator before being hired as a GPD officer in January 2000. He worked in District Two Operations before transferring last September to the Tactical Impact Unit, which investigates violent crimes. The Studio to move A art studio in the Reitz Union has packed up its paints and pottery in preparation for a move to the Reitz Union basement to save money in light of budget cuts. The Studio, previously located on the ground floor of the Reitz Union, closed May 2 and plans to reopen in the Arts and Crafts Center in the building's basement on June 2. Beth Waltrip, the Reitz Union's director of student activities, said the shuffle is due to a nearly $2 million cut to the Division of Student Affairs budget. "If we can move The Studio, that opens floor space for additional retail stores," Waltrip said. No decisions have been made about The Studio's replacement. The center will house some events formerly managed by The Studio, such as some leisure courses and Gator Nights activities. Julie English, program assistant for the Leisure Course Program, said the worst part about relocating is the loss of already scarce foot traffic on the ground floor. "If we can move The Studio, that opens floor space for additional retail stores." Beth Waltrip Reitz Union director of student activities "I've had seniors say they didn't even know we existed," English said. -LAUREN WIECHMANN If what happened on your inside happened on your outside, would you still smoke?

TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 5 UF ADMINISTRATION Faculty call for more input By KATIE SANDERS Alligator Staff Writer ksanders@aliigator.org Members of UF's Faculty Senate called for greater input over decisions about faculty layoffs and department shake-ups during the Senate's Thursday meeting. Plans to reduce the budget by $47 million required all UF departments and units to propose 6 percent in cuts. Since the May 5 announcement, some of the cuts outlined in the proposal have incited controversy between administrators and faculty who say their voices were not heard in academic decisions. As a result, the Senate passed a resolution that asks administrators to give faculty members a "meaningful" chance to share their views on significant changes to their colleges. Kyle Cavanaugh, senior vice president for administration, took the place of UF President Bernie Machen at the meeting. Machen was on a fundraising trip. Cavanaugh said staff members were notified of layoffs Thursday, but it will be another 30 days for faculty to get the news. When Cavanaugh told senators he understood that plans submitted by each dean had the endorsement of faculty within the college, he was met with a flurry of shouted "No's" and shaking heads from faculty members in the room. Joe Glover, interim dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, addressed accusations from several disgruntled CLAS faculty members who said shared governance was not considered in the cuts, which will result in 10 faculty and 13 staff layoffs from CLAS. Glover said because two of the college's committees charged with finding solutions for an almost $6 million cut stopped several million dollars short; he was left with no choice but to make cuts by himself. "I would argue that there was ample opportunity for shared governance," Glover said. "I believe the evidence is there." Despite three doctorate-degree programs in CLAS being saved from elimination, some CLAS faculty still expressed frustration over the cuts. More than 30 members from the departments of zoology and botany attended the meeting to urge administrators to reconsider merging their units as outlined in CLAS' budget-cutting proposal. Because both programs are nationally ranked, professors argued that combining them might diminish their prestige. Korean lecturer KyungEo un Yoon, one of six faculty members from the Department of African Cavanaugh and Asian Languages and Literatures slated to lose their jobs, said some of the professors who will probably be laid off are struggling with their new and fastapproaching realities as they do research in foreign countries. "We are feeling really alienated right now, and we are feeling really abandoned in this situation," Yoon said. Not all faculty members have as much disdain for their unit's process for coping with cuts, however. Elizabeth Bolton, a UF family, youth and community sciences professor, said budget cuts were discussed at every faculty meeting and through e-mail long before they were announced. "It is painful, but it can be done," Bolton said. LADPIES'1 N IGHT": 1 Free wehs & Drafts for Ladis $4 0tic Pitchers for everyone. 1702 W.

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2008 Marital Bliss California ruling sets example worth following ast week, the California Supreme Court handed down a historic ruling regarding one of the most divisive issues of our time: gay marriage. In a sweeping decision that is sure to provide plenty of election year fodder for political pugilists on both sides, the California court declared marriage to be a fundamental right for all citizens, regardless of sexual preference. Chief Justice Ronald George wrote that "in contrast to earlier times, our state now recognizes that an individual's capacity to establish a loving and long-term committed relationship with another person and responsibly to care for and raise children does not depend upon the individual's sexual orientation." The decision overturns a voter-approved constitutional amendment and makes the Golden State just the second state to provide all of its citizens with the right to marry -the other being Massachusetts, which did so back in 2004. While California ventures into a brave new world of greater social equality, our state stands on the precipice of descending (even further) into the dark ages. This fall, Florida voters will be asked to decide whether a ban on same-sex marriage should be added to the constitution via popular referendum. If passed, Amendment 2 would restrict marriage to "the union of one man and one woman as husband and wife." Wait a minute. The Florida Legislature passed a ban on gay marriage all the way back in 1997. Why the hell would we need to pass a law that's already been codified? While advocates of "family values" point to the actions of "activist judges" -such as those in California and Massachusetts -as justification for fortifying Florida's ban on same-sex marriage, we view the proposed amendment as part of more insidious machinations. In recent years, Republicans have used the issue of gay marriage as a wedge issue in hopes of driving throngs of social conservatives to the polls. This strategy was instrumental in President Bush's reelection in 2004, when 11 states placed constitutional amendments prohibiting same-sex marriage on their respective ballots. Conservative voters flocked to the polls four years ago to ensure that a segment of their countrymen and women would be discriminated against. The measures overwhelmingly passed in all 11 states. Yet, even more than its utility as a Republican vote manufacturer, Amendment 2 has the added benefit (for conservatives) of possibly abrogating benefits, such as health care, altogether to members of Florida's homosexual community. Unlike the progressive result in California, however, Michigan's justices have chosen to roll back protections for gays and lesbians. Earlier this month, the Michigan Supreme Court ruled that the state's ban on gay marriage also serves to prohibit state and local governments from providing same-sex partners benefits such as health care -benefits that heterosexuals freely enjoy. The 2004 Michigan amendment isn't identical to Amendment 2. Nevertheless, the Michigan court ruling has raised concerns among gay rights activists that a similar outcome could result here if Floridians approve this draconian and redundant measure in the fall. We hail the California justices for their courage in the face of the great wave of intolerance and ignorance that has prevented most of the country from granting equal protection of the laws to all its citizens. We hope our fellow Floridians will see Amendment 2 for what it is: a blatant political subterfuge. We would do well to follow the lead of California and reject the politics of inequality.

Opinions ~6<-. ijI~.ho %oing green can decided last week that, for the first time in my life, I was ready to give in to peer pressure. Considering the degree to which I harp on my family and friends to turn the lights off and unplau appliances, I harbor a pretty incriminating skeleton in my closet -I drive an SUv. To be fair, it's a small one. But my fine ride of a beige 1999 GMC Jimmy is enough to qualify me for hypocrite status. For years, I've endured unending heckling on this point, the disparity between my words and my actions a glaring point of contradiction. To ease my mind, I rationalized that I was way too broke to afford making a switch. But with a bit of graduation money tucked away -not to mention, in the face of $4-a-gallon gas at 16 miles per gallon -I finally decided my friends were right. It was time to put my money where my mouth was. So I turned to my trusted friend Google, the omnipotent source of information in my life, sure that after a few hours searching I would be ready to sign a check and drive off into the sunset, guilt-free. But instead of winding up with a new car, what I wound up with was a headache. My first goal was high fuel economy, so I set my sights on hybrid technology. Now, I consider myself a simple Midwest girl. I don't need a lot of bells and whistles or even power windows for that matter. So I figured I would find a nice used Prius, perhaps a little well-worn but still functional, no problem. Wrong. A used 2001 Toyota Prius will cost you somewhere in e a tough road Kate Truesdell the ballpark of $10,000 to $11,000. U-Wire For a car only two years newer than the one I have, that meant I would pay three times as much as I paid initially for my current vehicle. I was disheartened, to say the least. Frazzled, I typed furiously, searching the dark corners of cyberspace, desperate for a better deal. But the more information I came across, the less sure I was of what I was looking for. Hybrids are nice, but maybe cost-prohibitive. And getting kick-ass gas mileage is good, but what about alternative fuel? If oil is really the source of our sins overseas, maybe my money says more if I forget gas altogether. Sure, ethanol is a crock, but what about biodiesel? Turns out that's tricky too. At first glance it seems great, and people are certainly jumping on the bandwagon quickly. According to the National Biodiesel Board, sales per gallon for the fuel increased 500-fold between 1999 and 2006. But there's more to it: Making a car biodiesel-ready involves complicated technical conversions way beyond my abilities, considering I view being able to read my tire pressure a shining achievement. By the end of my afternoon spent searching, instead of feeling satisfied and eco-savvy, I felt hurt, confused and ready for some serious antihypertensives. As I find is often the case, in trying to make conscientious life choices, even the best of intentions didn't get me to where I wanted to go.

TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2008 0 ALLIGATOR, 7 Gudests Com Ba da wl l n Students beware: Brain drain will lower value of UF degree Brace yourselves, we're in for a brain As you have probably heard by now, UF is preparing to lay off 14 faculty members and more than 100 staff as part of President Bernie Machen's proposed $47 million budget reduction. When coupled with the $22 million reduction made in October, UF's budget for the coming academic year will be a whopping $69 million less than this year's. As a result of the cuts, the faculty members who are staying are losing colleagues and collaborators, and departments are stretching their support staff. Meanwhile, amid budget squeezes and salary freezes, five faculty members from the College of Education have left to take other jobs this year. Eight more retired. None of them will be replaced. A similar brain drain is happening at the University of Wisconsin. This school year, it retained only 63 percent of its faculty who received offers from other schools. Budget cuts similar to those proposed for UF are largely to blame for faculty leaving for greener pastures. The process of hiring professors is someElizabeth Hillaker thong like sports recruiting. If reSpeaking Out sources dwindle at one university, other, wealthier institutions swoop in to offer larger paychecks and other incentives to top professors so they'll switch teams. UT ranks in the bottom third for faculty salaries among its peer institutions, and this presents more affluent institutions with the opportunity to steal away top professors. The cost of living is lower in Gainesville, and UF has wonderful facilities. But money talks. And it's not just the money. Now, more than ever, faculty members are told to do more with less. On top of teaching and scholarship, they are encouraged to secure grants from outside sources to help make up for the budget deficit. A record $583 million in research money was given to UF faculty members this year. With faculty members leaving or being laid off and many departments being forced into hiring freezes, the strain will only build. Why should we care? Regardless of what the billboards say, The Gator Nation is not everywhere. Employers will consider the value of your degree. As faculty members leave, the value of your education decreases. Case in point: UF slipped from a five-way tie for No. 13 to No. 17 in the most recent U.S. News & World Report rankings. UF's fall in the rankings reflects staggering faculty-tostudent ratios and poor faculty resources. Theaverage faculty salary at UF is $109,300 for full professors, $73,000 for associate professors and $62,500 for assistant professors. Faculty members did not receive raises last year. However, last fall, Machen received a $275,000 bonus to his $416,162 salary for meeting goals in his contract. While the bonus came from the UF Foundation -the fundraising arm of the university -instead of taxpayer money, it was still in poor taste. Machen has guaranteed faculty raises for promotions and is working on a program to pay some faculty members merit-based raises. But meager pay increases won't compensate for decreased support staff and continued pressure on faculty to do more with less. Even the nearly $200 million raised for faculty support through part of the university's fundraising campaign will not be enough to prevent some of our top professors from leaving. UF should stop obsessing about rankings and image and should instead focus on the people who make UF work. Try asking them what they need -other than money -to stay. Eventually, it won't only be professors leaving but top students as well. UF Spokesman Steve Orlando has recommended students write to their legislators to request more funding for education. The money legislators give UF is comparable to its peer institutions, Orlando said. But their refusal to let our universities raise tuition more than 15 percent per year limits our ability to cope with Florida's economic downturn and stem the impending brain drain. Budget cuts don't happen in a vacuum, and students should not just brush this off because they will leave UF in a couple of years. You will have your degree for the rest of your life. Don't you want it to be worth something? Elizabeth Hillaker is a LIF alumina. Guest Column Clinton should drop bid to count Florida, Michigan primaries here are seedy things afoot in the 2008 presidential election. Back in the day, it was decided throughout the land that Florida and Michigan would not count toward the delegate numbers in the Democratic primary. By now, we all probably know the story behind it. The Florida Democratic Party and the Democratic National Convention decided to have a contest to see who could urinate the farthest. The result of the botched moving of the primary date was Florida not having any delegates counted when the big convention happens in Denver. So that was that. Florida and Michigan are scratches. The primary votes were nothing but a glorified high school popularity contest.

8, ALLIGATOR N TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2008 en UF team simulates hurricanes By VICTORIA WINKLER Alligator Contributing Writer It starts with a roar. The dimly lit, one-room house trembles as the wind and rain pound relentlessly. Water leaks in through cracks in the bare wooden floor. The solitary window bends inward like a bubble just about to pop. Outside, the sun shines. On Monday afternoon, the students, faculty and staff of UF's hurricane research team demonstrated their mobile hurricane simulator at the Powell Family Structures and Materials Laboratory on UF's Eastside Campus. A block of eight fans, each five feet tall and powered by four external marine diesel engines, simulated the effects of a Category 3 hurricane on a model of a one-story home. UF researchers use the simulator to test how well different building materials and techniques hold up against wind and rain at speeds of about 120 mph, similar to those experienced in some of Florida's past hurricane seasons. Engines capable of a combined 2,800 horsepower drive water to hydraulic-powered fans, and tubes spit water from a 5,000-gallon tank to simulate wind-driven rain. "Fortunately, we have a lot of talented students at UF, and we were able to harness their creative abilities." Forrest Masters UF assistant professor of civil and coastal engineering The entire machine is mobile, so it can be tested on real homes donated for hurricane research. The simulator is about 10 feet tall and about 20 feet long. The effort was spearheaded by Forrest Masters, assistant professor of civil and coastal engineering at UF, and took the hurricane research team about eight months and $500,000 to Researchers test damage Budget cuts incite faculty, staff departures KAI N, from page 1 of the future growth of the university," Hoit said. "That has changed everything." David Figio, UF economics professor, will be moving from his endowed chair position at UF to another one at Northwestern University this fall. Although Figlio will technically be on sabbatical from UF, he said he is almost certain he will stay at Northwestern once the year is complete. Figio said he had received many offers during his decade of employment at UF but never considered accepting any until now. "I always thought the future at UF looked sufficiently good," Figho said. "But now UF's future is sufficiently uncertain, so I owe it to myself and my family to reconsider other options." While Figio will receive a higher salary from Northwestern University, he said what he values most is a uniUF versity's future UFa C --and UF's has Acfldei1tkI changed. "When a university faces budgetary issues over a couple years, it jeopardizes its ability to hire outstanding faculty members," Figbo said. "And when a university can't hire on the level it needs to, it's going to tip." Chris Slobogin, UF law professor, will also end his 25-year career at UF to begin a new professorship at Vanderbilt University Law School. "The cuts will certainly make leaving UF easier," Slobogin said. "And they will certainly make it harder for UF to compete with other schools, both public and private." These employees, who announced their resignation as a result of budget cuts, said they know of others who have threatened to do the same. Kyle Cavanaugh, senior vice president for administration, said he understands that there are severe consequences to the budget cuts. "Clearly the current budget situation is one that has all of us concerned about our ability to recruit and retain faculty," Cavanaugh said. "We need to commit to having a strong focus in that area." Chamber hopes to boost local economy COMMERCE, from page 1 Christensen said now the chamber will wait and see how long it takes the $2 bills to circulate throughout the local economy. He said a dollar invested locally makes its rounds more than a dollar invested out of town, and it is more important than ever to invest locally. "I'd venture to guess that 99 percent of people's purchases could be made in Alachua County if they just took a second-and looked," he said. At the showcase, local businesses offered special discounts to chamber members to keep the bills in circulation. Scott Costello, publisher of Home: Living in the Heart of Florida magazine, offered advertising discounts to chamber members. Glaeser Realty dished out $50 in $2 bills during hourly drawings at the showcase between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Realtor Mitch Glaeser said, "I don't know of any chamber in the country that is taking such an active role and trying to put a positive spin on some pretty tough economic times." Wayne Wallace, director of UF's Career Resource Center, said the state of the national economy is mixed. Issues such as the rising cost of energy and the implications of the declining housing market negatively affect consumer confidence, Wallace said. "Here in Gainesville, we're in pretty good shape," he said. complete. Masters said the team plans to test different types of wall, exterior finishes, windows and installation procedures for their effectiveness in preventing water damage to homes. Every project has its challenges, Masters said, and the simulator was no exception. "We started with only a set of plans and instruction manuals," he said. "Fortunately, we have a lot of talented students at UF, and we were able to harness their creative abilities." George Fernandez, a civil and coastal engineering student, works on simulators used in UF's hurricane research. A shingle shooter and a tile launcher test the damage done to pieces of roof material pulled loose during violent storms. The shingle shooter can send a square shingle flying at 70 mph, and the tile-launcher, roughly the size of a cannon, projects clay roof tiles that dent steel shutters used to protect windows. "Anything that breaks stuff is right up our alley," Fernandez said with a smile. Sarah Hsu/ Alligator Staff UF graduate students Kenneth Hill and Chelsea Scheid test how much pressure it would take for a hurricane to rip nails from a roof Monday. Money collected will help Chinese Red Cross VIGIL, from page 1 after collecting about $10,000 since Wednesday afternoon, said Jiawei Zhang, the club's vice president. All proceeds will be donated to the Chinese Red Cross, said Weitao Li, president of the organization. Li also encouraged students to give donations to the Chinese Consulate General in New York City or to Mercy Corps. Long Yu, a chemistry graduate student, is one of many students who donated money in support of earthquake relief, accumulating roughly $1,100 in donations during the week from his own pocket. "It's a dark and emotional moment for the whole country. We hope more people can help." Jiangyan Xu engineering graduate student "At this point, we're not caring about money but hope," Yu said. "Life is so invaluable." Jiangyan Xu, an engineering graduate student, attended the vigil because he feels close to those who share his culture and dialect. He did not lose friends or family in the earthquake. "We're lucky people we know survived," Xu said. Weifeng Liu, an electrical and computer engineering graduate student, had no family affected by the earthquake but donated $20 on Thursday at the Chun Ching Oriental Market. "It's a dark and emotional moment for the whole country," Liu said. "We hope more people can help."

TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2008 K ALLIGATOR, 9 Locals try out for 'Amazing Race' Minority party avoids scare By ELIZABETH LEVA Alligator Contributing Writer A dispute at a UF Student Senate committee meeting Sunday left the Gator Party and the Orange and Blue Party pointing fingers over job responsibility. Sen. Eric Wolf submitted his resignation from the Orange and Blue Party on Friday to become an independent senator. In doing so, Wolf brought the Orange and Blue's roster down to seven members. In order for a minority party to have a senator on the Replacement and Agenda Committee, it must have at least eight members. The committee is responsible for assigning senators to each of Senate's five conunitStudent tees. Government Wolf said he was unaware his resignation would have caused ineligibility for the party and re-registered with Orange and Blue on Monday. "The minority party deserves a voice," Wolf said. "So, of course, I changed my mind." But the process leading up to the potential party crisis was not easily dismissed. Sen. Frank Bracco, an independent who is serving as a replacement for an Orange and Blue senator during summer A, said the party's members were unaware of Wolf's resignation and their ineligibility to have a member on the committee until Sunday's meeting. "There were a couple tense moments when we thought the world was going to come to an end," Bracco said. Orange and Blue Party leader Sam Mioreili said it was Senate President Kellie Dale's responsibility to alert the party of its situation when she learned of it Friday afternoon. Her notice would have allowed the Orange and Blue Party a chance to solve its issue, Miorelli said. Mioreili said Dale deliberately withheld information from the Orange and Blue party to revoke its representation on the committee. But Dale said members of the Orange and Blue Party have only themselves to blame. "I'm not sure where their internal communication broke down to make them unaware of the situation," Dale said. "But it's their responsibility to know what is going on within their own party -not ours." Taylor said, but they are more concerned with having a good time than winning the $1 million grand prize. "I think the experience is more of a motivation to me than the potential to win," Taylor said. "If we got halfway through and had a great time, I would be happy with that. Winning would also be cool." By CHANTELLE MARCELLE Alligator Contributing Writer Watching the recent season finale of "Survivor," Donna Smith discovered a way to achieve reality stardom herself. A commercial advertised a casting call in Gainesville for season 14 of another one of her favorite reality shows, "The Amazing Race." The show features teams of two who race around the world completing challenges as quickly as possible. Smith, a Student Health Care Center pharmacist, immediately knew her partner would be her boyfriend, Brent Taylor. "We do everything together," Smith, 34, said. "We're like adventure partners. We travel together all the time. We live together, and we're best friends." Taylor said he wasn't as excited about auditioning for the show as his girlfriend, but he wants to support her dream. The couple sent an e-mail to television station WGFLCBS4 and received a scheduled time to appear at the Saturday casting call, which was held at the station. Lisa Stoessel, creative services coordinator for CBS4, said the casting call was advertised in TV commercials for about two weeks, and the response was tremendous. However, only the first 100 pairs to register on the Web site were interviewed. Hopefuls were given two minutes to explain to a video camera why they should be chosen, Stoessel said. Applicants will find out if they made it to the next round in August. Smith said she is confident about her interview.

Sports TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2008 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.Org Gators avenge loss with power surge By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Writer kmaistri@alligator.org For the first time all season, the road forked in front -'4 of the Gators. A path leading each player home for the summer stood opposite a road leading to the goal they've worked so hard for all season -the Women's College World Series. Unexpectedly, it took two games against Central Florida Sunday to determine which route the team would follow. Luckily for the Gators, they chose the latter and will now play California in Super Regional Action starting on Friday "It was a pretty good two games between two great teams, two great pitchers and two great fan bases," UF coach Tim Walton said. In the first game of the eventual Softball doubleheader Sunday, UCF (49-20) stunned No. 1 UF (65-3) by defeating the heavy favorites in eight innings 1-0. For seven irmings, a Southeastern Conference All-Conference selection and a Conference USA AllConference selection dueled their way to a 0-0 tie. In extra innings, Knights senior pitcher Allison Kime put up yet another scoreless frame, giving her team a chance to win the game in the bottom of the eighth. Tiffany Lane and Marquita Council lead off the inning with back-to-back singles. UCF's best hitter, Breanne Javier, advanced both the runners on a sacrifice bunt. Walton brought all nine players into a huddle on the mound, before junior Stacey Nelson got Hillary Barrow to pop up to catcher Kristina Hilberth for the second out of the inning. Appropriately, the next batter to come to the plite was Kime, who the -izghts do not designate a hitter for Sarah Hsu/ Alligator Staff as most teams do for their pitcher. Kim Waleszonia takes a practice swing before batting in the Gators, With a 2-2 count, Kime chopped a pitch just over 3-0 win against UCF. She hit two home runs during the weekend. SEE SOFTBALL, PAGE 18 UF WOMEN'S TENNIS Disappointing loss for team, seniors STAFF REPORT Recently, it's been the Gators who have crushed the championship hopes of the Bruins -twice defeating the crosscountry foe in basketball Final Fours. The UF women's tennis team (24-3) failed to follow suit Monday when No. 7 UCLA (23-5) came out on the winning end of a 4-2 decision. "It's disappointing to lose, but we can hold our heads up high knowing that we prepared and did everything we could have to get ready for this tournament," sophomore Megan Alexander said. "We left everything we had on the courts today." No. 6 UF got off to an unfamiliar start when it dropped the doubles point for "It's disappointing to lose, but we can hold our heads up high knowing that we prepared and did everything we could have to get ready for this tournament." Megan Alexander UF sophomore the first time all season. The Gators' No. 2-ranked tandem of Whitney Benik and Csilla Borsanyi lost in an upset to the Bruins No. 56 duo of Elizabeth Lumpkin and Stephanie Wetmore. When Julia Cohen and Anastasia Revzina lost to No. 26 Alex McGoodwin and Yasmin Schnack it marked the first time all season the Gators lost in the No. 3 doubles position. UF had posted a perfect 25-0 record, including a 21-0 record by Cohen and Revzina. "I thought we handled (losing the doubles point) well," UF coach Roland Thornqvist said. "We thought we would have the advantage physically if the match went into the fourth hour because of the heat. We made a run, but losing the doubles point is not something we've had to deal with this year, but I thought we did the best we could." After falling behind 2-0 when No. 29 Cohen also dropped her singles match to SEE WOMEN'S TENNIS, PAGE 18 Sweep nets UF No. 3 SEC seed By SHANNON McCARTHY Alligator Staff writer smccarthy@ailigator.org Perhaps Brandon McArthur was being prophetic when he changed his batting music for this past weekend's series against then-No. 19 Vanderbilt. In the words of Gainesville's favorite son Tom Petty, the senior first baseman and the Gators showed they won't back down. That was the theme of the weekend, and in Saturday's victory in particular, as the Gators swept Vanderbilt and secured the No. 3 seed in this week's Southeastern Conference Tournament. Figueroa the first round Hoover, Ala. UF mounted comeback after comeback to win 13-12 on Jon Townsend's two-out, walk-off single in the 11th inning. The Gators will take on the Commodores once again Wednesday in of the tournament irii Cole Figueroa and Josh Adams singled to put runners on first and second with two outs in the bottom of the 11th. Townsend, one of the players honored before the game on Senior Day, drove a breaking ball into left field. Figueroa motored home from second base, dove head-first across the plate with the winning run, and sent up a cloud of dust and a wave of elated teammates who spilled out of the dugout to mob the second baseman at home plate before charging toward Townsend at first base.

18,.ALLIGATOR N TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2008 Gators edge Commodores in weekend full of firsts BASE, from page 17 Nelson pitches shutout in clinching win SOFTBALL, from page 17 Nelson's outstretched glove. Second baseman Aja Paculba tried to back hand the ball, but it kicked off her glove and Lane scored the winning run from third base. "We weren't too down," junior Kim Waleszonia said. "We knew we had to come back and make some better adjustments at the plate." The two teams switched dugouts and after a half an hour break, it was Nelson against Kime for the third time in two days. UF's offense jumped on Kime in the first inning and took a 3-0 lead. In the second inning, the 5-foot-4-inch leadoff hitter, who had one home run all season, blasted a pitch over the right field wall, making it a 4-0 score. With blood in the water, a newly relaxed Gators offense delivered the final blow to the Knights' upset hopes. Once again, Waleszonia took Kime deep, for a three-run blast. UF would score six runs in that fourth inning, and suddenly the game was out of reach. Nelson was unflinching inside the circle, allowing just one base runner -an infield single -on the way to her second shutout of UCF in three games. In getting to the championship game, UF defeated Georgia Tech 7-2 Friday night, and UCF 3-0 Saturday afternoon, earning the flexibility to lose the first of two games on Sunday season UF has been able to celebrate an extra-innings win or a walk-off win. It was a fitting way to cap off a thrilling weekend that saw other firsts, too. "We came out this weekend with more intensity, a little more passion playing the game" Josh Adams UF third baseman Thursday night the Gators rallied from a 6-4 deficit in the eighth inning on a pair of two-out, two-run homers from seniors Barber and McArthur to secure their first late-inning comefrom-behind victory. UF had been 0-14 when trailing after seven innings and was 0-16 when trailing after eight prior to Thursday's win. On Friday night, Figueroa launched a three-run shot to put Florida ahead 5-3 after the Commodores had gotten out to a 3-0 lead. Josh Edmondson struck out the side with two on and no outs in the eighth inning. In the ninth, with the tying run at second base, Gator ace Patrick Keating struck out Pedro Alvarez after an epic battle to secure another heart-stopping win. All of the weekend's drama left UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan exhausted. "To finish it off like that with two exciting wins to begin with. .1 might sleep 12 hours tonight," he said on Saturday. No. 6 UF unable to win key doubles point in Round of 16 WOMEN'S TENNIS, from page 17 No. 8 Riza Zalameda, the Gators were able to make a push in singles. Alexander and Revzina both recorded 6-4, 6-3 victories to even the score at 2-2. Benik dropped what would be the final singles match of her career, falling 6-3, 6-4 to the Bruins' Andrea Remynse. Freshman Marrit Boonstra was unable to hold off Lumpkin who sealed the match for UCLA with a 6-4, 2-6, 6-2 victory. The NCAA semifinal loss to the Bruins ended the Gators season and the careers of Benik and Lolita Frangulyan. "What a career they ended today, three NCAA final fours, three SEC champion6 ships," Thornqvist said of the seniors. "I know that they are terribly disappointed ennIS here, but they should be very, very proud of what they've accomplished. "They have represented the University of Florida, their teammates and the coaching staff in a first-class manner and we're certainly going to miss them."

For the Gators, two outs is more often than not the right time to come through. UF scored 17 of its 26 runs this weekend with two outs, 10 of its 13 runs on Saturday.

TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2008 M ALLIGATOR, 19 Women's golf seeks first national title since 1986 0 THE GATORS HAVE JUST ONE SENIOR IN THEIR LINEUP. By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteele@alligator.org Jill Briles-Hinton saw this coming since last year. For a team that had never won an NCAA Regional before, you wouldn't think a ragtag group with just three seniors -and only one of them that was in the lineup -would win their first regional crown. But the No. 4 Gators with one senior, one junior and three freshmen did win their first ever regional title last weekend and now are among the favorites headed into the NCAA Championships, which starts today in Albuquerque, N.M. It didn't take long for Briles-Hinton to realize what this team was capable of, either. As soon as Jessica Yadloczky and 16-yearold Hannah Yun announced they were Gainesville-bound, Briles-Hinton knew she had a championship-caliber team. The freshmen have backed up what BrilesHinton saw in recruiting them, too, as Yun helped seal the regional victory with a birdie on the par-5 18th and Yadloczky finished tied for 10th overall and was UF's second best finisher. After her first collegiate match at the Mason Rudolph back in September, Yadloczky finished ahead of eight All-Americans. Yadloczky is ranked 15th in Golfweek's Individual Ratings Index and Yun is 22nd. "They've brought spice," Briles-Hinton said of the freshGolf men. "They've brought a huge competition and desire and, determination." The Gators haven't been named national champs since 1986, which means even the team's elder statesman Tiffany Chudy was still in diapers. But now UF has its best chance in awhile. And winning it all certainly hasn't been a taboo subject. "You can talk about it," Briles-Hintornsaid. "They know they can win. You also have to talk about how to go about winning it. There's no problem with talking about it as long as you talk about how you're going to do it." While the Gators as a program aren't a stranger to the national scene -they finished 6th overall in 2006 -this year's team has some traits that past teams have lacked--"They have some fortitude," she said. "They don't quit. They withstand adversity, and they just don't quit. They've given themselves their best chance to win." UF MEN'S GOLF Jr. Horsche! rallies team to fourth-place at regionals STAFF REPORT On a day when the scoring conditions were less than optimal at the Ohio State Scarlet Course, Billy Horschel stepped up when his team needed him the most. After suffering a sub-par day on Friday, Horschel rebounded brilliantly. He tied for the lowest round of the day with a 1under 70 to help the No. 6 UF men's golf team secure an NCAA Championships appearance with a share of fourth place at the NCAA Horschel finished in eighth Central Regional on Saturday. place with his performance "It wasn't really pretty but we got it done," UF coach Buddy Alexander said. "Obviously, there was a very tough golf course out there today. It was a tough day to play and really windy We were where we needed to oe all day long. "We get another shot at it. I keep waiting for us to have a big event, so maybe we are saving the best for last." Saturday, which put him at 6-over 219 overall. The top 10 finish was his sixth of the season and 22nd of his career, moving him into a tie for fifth in UF history with Alexander former Gators and current PGA Tour players Dudley Hart and Brian Gay. "Billy stepped up big time for us, which is what All-Americans do," Alexander said. "He really carried us though today. It was nice to see Billy bounce back after his finish yesterday that put us in a tough spot." The junior carded two birdies and 15 pars through his first 17 holes. He gave a stroke back on the par-4 18th hole with his only bogey, but in the end he leapt up the standings from a tie for 37th back. Two other Gators finished in the top 60. Tyler Brown placed at 52, while Manuel Villegas finished with a share of 59th place. The fourth-seeded Gators entered the day in eighth place bit jumped four spots on the tournament's final day. With that resurgence, UF locked up what will be its eighth straight NCAAChampionships appearance and the 25th in the past 26 seasons.

20, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2008 Gators season ends in Tulsa N UF COULD NOT RECOVER AFTER LOSING DOUBLES. By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Writer kmaistri@alligator.org It's never easy when a successful season comes to a bitter end. On Friday, UF completed its finainatch when the No. 9 team in the nation fell to No. 7 Texas in Tulsa, Okla. "They certainly would be one of the best teams in the [Southeastern Conference]," coach Andy Jackson said. No small compliment when considering the SEC boasts four of the top ten schools in the nation. The Gators advanced to the Round of 16 for the seventh straight season, joining Baylor, UCLA and Illinois as the only teams able to make such a claim. The momentum favored Texas from the very beginning. The Longhorns defeated UF quickly to take the doubles point. The No. 53 doubles team in the nation, Luis Diaz Barriga and Miguel Reyes Varela, narrowly came out on top against the Gators' Nestor Briceno and Alex Lacroix in an 8-6 decision. While doubles play is decided first, Jackson downplayed the importance of taking the first point when singles play potentially counts for six. "In college tennis a little gets made into a lot there," he said. "I think that most of the time, the teams get a little Tenis carried away with putting stock into one point." The quantitative gravity of winning the doubles point does not add up to a whole lot, but the confidence Texas gained in sweeping UF undoubtedly set the tone for singles play. "You could say we were a little bit off kilter," Jackson said. Courts three, four and six were the first to finish under the hot sun, with different matchups yielding the same results. Corrie, Barriga and Varela again scored points for the Longhorns, defeating the Gators' Lacroix, Dedamo and Erik Corace, respectively. Before seniors Ouellette and Briceno could complete a third set to score points in their last tournament wearing the Orange and Blue, the match was over. Texas 4, UF 0. The only seniors on a team that played five freshmen in its final match were understandably emotional with the outcome. "They were really upset because they felt like, along with me, that we really could do something at this tournament," Jackson said. Despite the disappointing result, Jackson acknowledged that the experience would only help his young squad in the future. "It sets the table to be able to go further next year," he said. "We'll be less awed by the occasion. We would like to have a better taste in our mouth after the last match next year." UF gets 2nd, 4th STAFF REPORT Sometimes even your best just isn't good enough. After entering the final day of the Southeastern Conference Championships with an 18point lead over Arkansas, the UF women's track and field team was unable to hold on to win the team title. The No. 13 women finished the weekend in second place, despite having three individual wins on the final day of competition. LSU won the title by posting 131 points on the final day. "They came in here with the goal of winning the meet, and even though we were beaten by a better team, they performed admirably," UF coach Mike Holloway said. The men, who were ranked No. 3 nationally heading into the weekend, didn't fare much better. Despite being the favorite, and the highSEC team at the start of the meet, the Gators were only able to Holloway race their way to a fourth-place finish in the team standings. The best performance of the meet on the men's side came from the 4x400 meter relay team, whose season best time of 3:04.75 was less than two tenths of a second behind champion Kentucky.
