Kone fired from position as med school dean


* HE MAY RETAIN A FACULTY POSI-
TION IN THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE.

By ELIZABETH LEVA
and KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writers

Dr. Bruce Kone was removed from
his position as dean of UF's College of
Medicine late Thursday afternoon, more
than a month after his controversial deci-
sion to overrule a medical school admis-
'sions committee was made public.
Kone, who became dean in May 2007,


will retain a faculty position in the de-
partment of medicine in the division of
nephrology, according to a Thursday e-
mail from UF President Bernie Machen
and Doug Barrett, senior vice president of
health affairs.
Janine Sikes, UF spokeswoman, said
Kone would retain the salary he earned as
dean in his faculty position.
"Dr. Machen and Dr. Barrett no longer
have confidence in Dean Kone's ability to
lead the College of Medicine," Sikes said.
Sikes would not comment fur-
ther, saying it was an internal issue.
Tom Fortner, Health Science Center spokes-


"Dr. Machen and Dr. Barrett no

Kone's ability to lead the College
of Medicine."

man, said he has not heard whether Kone
plans to stay as a member of the faculty.
Dr. Michael Good, formerly the college's
senior associate dean for clinical affairs, has
been appointed acting dean with the expec-
tation that an interim dean will be named


after discussions with faculty members,
stated the e-mail.
Good, an anesthesiologist, joined the
faculty in 1988.
Calls and e-mails to Kone and Good
were unreturned or forwarded to UF rep-
resentatives.
Good was a candidate for the dean posi-
.tion during the spring 2007 search, Fortner
said.
He said Good's appointment would
probably last a month until an interim
dean is appointed. Once the interim dean is
found, the search for a permanent dean will

When he saw law enforcement, he

Cuts make UF admissions tough for SFCC students


* UF WILL TAKE 30 PERCENT
FEWER TRANSFER STUDENTS.

By KATE HELLER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Disappointment has become a
recurring theme in the advisement
office at SFCC.
Budget cuts at UF have led to
a decreased admissions rate for
transferring students as admis-
sions requirements at UF have
only grown tougher.


"I have found that students are
becoming very anxious because
one of their major goals is to get
into UF," said Emilia Hodge, the
director of the advisement center
at SFCC.
Over the past few months, the
center has been pushing students
to consider all of their options. Stu-
dents are encouraged to apply to
transfer to more than one institu-
tion, but SFCC is still doing its best
to cater to those devoted to UF.
But in addition to cutting back
transfer admissions, UF has also


"The admissions process is
becoming highly competi-
tive, and now it's even more
just a matter of space."
Emilia Hodge
SFCC advisement center director

tightened requirements for those
applying.
"The admissions process is
becoming highly competitive,"
Hodge said, "and now it's even
more just a matter of space."


Although SFCC's budget has
also been cut, its admission poli-
cies have not changed. It hopes to
not lose applicants as a direct ef-
fect of the decreasing rate of UF
transfers.
UF is accepting 30 percent
fewer transfer students than in
previous years, and no exceptions
are made for SFCC students.
"You get a lot of people who go
to Santa Fe and think it is going
to be easier to come to UF," said
William Lauffer, a program assis-
tant at the UF office of admissions.


"That is just not true. They don't
get any extra considerations."
The office of admissions at UF
receives visits from many students
in the transfer process wondering
if they are taking the right classes
and when to apply.
The biggest concern, however,
is whether there is room available,
Lauffer said.
"The lack of funding from the
state already necessitated transfer
cuts," he said. "It doesn't help
that our standards get higher and
higher."


Three Gainesville city commissioners sworn into office


They took oaths, made speeches


City officials, press and community mem-
bers honored newly elected city commission-
ers Thursday afternoon as they were sworn
into office.
Commissioners Thomas Hawkins Jr.
and Lauren Poe, along with re-elected
Commissioner Jack Donovan, placed their


right hands on the Bible and took an oath of
office. They gave brief speeches after being
sworn in.
Hawkins, 28, took time to focus on
Gainesville's historic roots during the ceremo-
ny. He said his family has called Gainesville
home for five generations, and he still remem-


bers taking walks with his grandmother near
the downtown duck pond.
Donovan begins his second term as District
3 city commissioner.
Gainesville City He was also elected
S. ' '- " -- Mayor-Commissioner
Pro Tem, which
means he will act as mayor if Mayor Pegeen
Hanrahan is unable to attend a meeting.


Lauren Poe, a 36-year-old SFCC profes-
sor, said after his speech that his career in
education has taught him to "deal with many
different personalities, accept them and then
teach them to work together." Poe focused the
majority of his speech on issues such as alter-
native energy sources, reducing the need for
burning coal and the use of solar power.

Jewish center honors historic scholars on holiday


* LAG B'OMER AND ISRAELI STATE-
HOOD WERE CELEBRATED THURSDAY.

Despite dreary weather, festivi-
ties for the ninth annual Lag B'Omer
barbecue at the Lubavitch-Chabad
Jewish Student and Community
Center were lively Thursday night.
The center combined the Jewish holiday


of Lag B'Omer with the 60th anniver-
sary of Israel's statehood, celebrating
with a kosher barbecue, pony rides,
face painting, crafts and live music
from the Gainesville Chutzpa Band.
Rabbi Berl Goldman said about 150 people
attended the celebration and estimated
that $300 was raised from ticket sales.
Lag B'Omer is a Jewish holiday celebrat-
ing the lives of sages Rabbi Akiva, who


promoted Jewish unity during the Roman
occupation of Israel, and Rabbi Shimon Bar
Yochai, who revealed the mystical secrets
of the Torah, called Kabbalah.
Local The holiday, celebrated on the
News 33rd day after the second day
of Passover, also represents
a break in the mourning period between
Passover and Shavuot. It marks the end
of a plague that affected Akiva's disciples.


In Israel, thousands of Jews march through
the streets in parades and demonstrations
during the holiday.
Goldman said the festivities would
have continued if it rained, but he
was glad the weather cooperated.
"I prayed for God to move the clouds a
little east or a little west and help us out,"
Goldman said.

ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES

Beetles threaten


Florida laurel trees


By ALYSSA LaRENZIE
Alligator Staff Writer

Beetles about the size of
Abraham Lincoln's nose on the
penny are swiftly eliminating trees
across the southeastern U.S.
The fungus that they carry
gives laurel trees a disease called
laurel wilt, killing them. The most
commonly affected laurel is the
redbay tree.
Cross Creek .resident Tom
Lawyer has about 10 acres of land
and about twenty dead redbay
trees.
"They were hard to pick out
before, but it's getting easier now,"
Lawyer said. "They're the dead
ones."
Lawyer is one of the first in
Alachua County to witness the
laurel wilt disease in his own
backyard.
About a year ago, the beetle
started destroying laurel trees
in Alachua County, said Bud
Mayfield, forest entomologist at
the Florida Division of Forestry.
The species causing the laurel
wilt disease is invasive and non-
native.
It was carried over from Asia,
most likely from infected wooden
crates, Mayfield said.
"It's not a huge problem in
Alachua County yet," he said, "but
it will probably get worse."


Laurel wilt made its entrance
in the U.S. in 2002 near Savannah,
Ga. In 2005, the disease reached
Florida.
It will most likely extend into
South Florida where it could harm
another tree in the laurel family
- the avocado tree, Mayfield said.
Miami-Dade County has the
most avocado farmers in Florida,
and the introduction of the non-
native beetle could ruin the crops
and jeopardize the income of the
farmers, he said.
"It's a big tragedy that we
keep losing these species
one after the other."
Jim Weimer
Paynes Prarie biologist

In Alachua County, the beetle
will not shrink any wallets, but it
could kill a lot of trees and the spe-
cies that depend on them.
In Paynes Prairie Preserve State
Park, the elimination of redbay
would erase a source of food for
birds, said Jim Weimer, the park
biologist.
Though the beetle has not yet
hit the wetland forest, there is little
that can be done to prevent it and a
lot that could be lost, Weimer said.
"It's a big tragedy that we keep
losing these species one after the
other," he said.

Volunteers line Eighth Avenue with memorial tombstones


They paid tribute to 4,581 soldiers who died at war


By CHRISTOPHER HAYES
Alligator Contributing Writer

As students piled out of bars early
Saturday morning, the day was just be-
ginning for dozens of volunteers who
unloaded cardboard tombstones for the
annual Memorial Mile.
The memorial, located at Northwest
34th Street and Northwest Eighth Avenue,
served as a tribute to the thousands of
soldiers who have died in the Iraq and
Afghanistan conflicts.
By dawn, their cemetery was complete
and ran the length of Eighth Avenue's
Solar Walk, which is about one mile long.
There were 48 tombstones between the
Solar Walk's Mercury and Venus.
Signs indicating events in the timeline


of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts ran
along the road.
Thousands of names extended past the
sign that read, "'Mission Accomplished'
May 1st 2003."
"We had more than expected,
unfortunately."
Jessica Newman
press coordinator for Veterans for Peace


Stephen Hunter, a volunteer for the
event, said it took 46 pages to list the
names on all the tombstones.
There were six pages for those who
died in Afghanistan and 40 for the soldiers
whose lives were lost in Iraq.
Each of the 4,581 vinyl cardboard


tombstones on display came with a brief
obituary listing the soldier's name, date of
death, branch of service, rank and home-
town.
Soldiers with local ties had a miniature
American flag on top of their tombstones.
"It touches me every time I walk it,"
Hunter said.
The Memorial Mile was a joint effort
by Code Pink, a women-initiated peace
movement, and Veterans for Peace.
Jackie Betz, the local coordinator for
Gainesville's Code Pink Chapter, offered
free pink lemonade and water as well as
a shady escape from the heat as, people
walked by her tent.
Volunteers on bikes whizzed past the
display, traveling from station to station to
check that none of the markers had been


disturbed.
Since last year's Memorial Mile, the
number of tombstones has increased from
about 3,800. Veterans for Peace allotted
space for this, but the group was still un-
able to completely plan for the number of
casualties.
"We had more than expected, unfortu-
nately," said Jessica Newman, press coor-
dinator for Veterans for Peace.
Newman said the purpose of the tomb-
stones was to make the deaths. a "visual
reality."
"This isn't a protest," she said.
At dusk on Monday, the memorial was
taken down and stored for next year.

UF study measures effectiveness of cat microchips


* MICROCHIPS USED TO
HELP RETURN MISSING CATS.

By CHANTELLE MARCELLE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Patty Dingman and Anuk do
not miss an episode of "Grey's
Anatomy."
Curled up on Dingman's
bed, Anuk, a 4-year-old gray cat,
feigns disinterest in the show that
Dingman calls their "guilty plea-
sure."
Dingman, a 25-year-old UF
veterinary graduate student, said
Anuk follows her everywhere
around the apartment, and she
would hate to lose track of her
whiskered friend.
Recently, Dingman enrolled
Anuk in a UF College of Veterinary
Medicine study on the effect of
long-term microchip and collar
use in returning lost cats to their
owners.
The study will determine how
much more likely a cat is to be re-
turned to its owner if it is wearing
certain forms of identification.
Three other veterinary schools
in the nation are participating in
the same study.
* Microchips act as permanent
identification that can be scanned
by animal professionals for infor-
mation about the pet's owner in
case a lost pet is found.
The study, headed by internal
medicine specialist Dr. Julie Levy,


encourages local cat owners to
bring their felines in for a free col-
lar and microchip. They are then
required to write down observa-
tions of their cats' behavior for six
months.
Levy said the study is impor-
tant because every year more than
4,000 lost cats end up at local ani-
mal control facilities.
Few of the cats are wearing any
form of identification, she said,
which makes it almost impossible
to reunite them with their owners.
The microchip is inserted with
a syringe and doesn't harm the
pet, Levy said. Microchips have
no known side effects, and tens of
millions are already in use in the
United States, she said.
The UF program offers a new
type of .microchip that also reads
body temperature. The chip is not
yet offered on the market, Levy
said.
Although there is a myth that
cats cannot safely wear collars,
she said a collar and tag provides a
way for people without access to a
microchip scanner, such as neigh-
bors, to find a lost cat's owner.
All six of Levy's cats have mi-
crochips and wear collars.
Levy said she is trying to enroll
180 cats in the UF study.
In the two months since the
program began, 150 have already
been enrolled.
Dingman admitted she has
always felt uncomfortable allow-


ing Anuk to go outside. Before
the study, Anuk wore no forms
of identification, which made
Dingman even more nervous.
"He tries to run outside every
time you open a door," she said.
"I've always chased him down
and brought him back inside. I


usually don't give him a chance to
get very far."
Dingman thinks Anuk has
adjusted very well to wearing a
collar, only scratching at it a few
times.
"It took me longer to adjust
than I think he did just because


I'm a really sensitive sleeper, and I
could hear him running around at
night," she said.
Dingman still does not plan on
letting Anuk play outside, though.
"I don't want him to pick up
any bad habits or bring fleas into
the house," she said.


Julie Levy, a professor of veterinary medicine at UF, injects a microchip into a cat named Apollos during
a demonstration of microchipping at the College of Veterinary Medicine on Thursday afternoon.

Call It Quits

Clinton's RFK comments

show need to exit race
M any observers of this year's historic race for the
Democratic presidential nomination have been
wondering out loud why Sen. Hillary Clinton hasn't
dropped out of the race yet. Sen. Barack Obama has won more
states and more pledged delegates, and now he has secured the
endorsement of more superdelegates than Clinton.
The only thing Clinton has going for her is the popular vote,
which she is winning by a slim margin - if you exclude the
caucus states of Iowa, Nevada, Maine and Washington and in-
dude the renegade primaries of Florida and Michigan (Obama's
name wasn't even on the ballot in the latter state).
What President Bush might call "fuzzy math" is Clinton's
best - well, only - talking point for why she "deserves" to be
the Democratic nominee.
The dubious nature of her contention is magnified by the
complex rhetorical gymnastics and inverted logic inherent in
claiming a popular mandate within an electoral process almost
as diverse as the states participating in it. Some states hold
dosed primaries, where only Democrats can cast ballots; some
states hold open primaries, where independents and sometimes
Republicans can vote; and some states hold caucuses, where
participants are predominantly stalwart party activists who
have the time and patience to gather and select delegates.
Clinton's caveat-laden popular vote calculus is disingenu-
ous, misleading and desperate. But this is politics, after all,
where mastery of the art of spin is oftentimes the most sig-
nificant component of electoral success. And if Clinton can
convince the superdelegates to abandon Obama based on this
factually impaired popular vote argument, then more power
to her.
Yet recent comments suggest there's a far more troubling
rationale behind Clinton's refusal to exit the Democratic race.
On Friday, the former first lady met with a South Dakota
newspaper's editorial board in advance of that state's primary
next week. When asked why she thought certain segments
of the party were calling for her to withdraw from the race,
Clinton responded that it just didn't make sense to her, noting
that previous Democratic nomination contests have continued
deep into the summer months.
This is an established fact. The 1980 nomination battle
between President Jimmy Carter and Sen. Edward Kennedy
and the 1984 race between Vice President Walter Mondale and
Sen. Gary Hart were contested all the way to-the Democratic
National Conventions of those respective years.
Yet Clinton did not reference these examples. Instead, the
junior senator from New York spoke the unspeakable, raising
.the specter of one of the darkest moments in American political
history: the assassination of Sen. Robert Kennedy in 1968.
"We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in
June [1968] in Califorina," Clinton said. Invoking the traumatic
events of June 5, 1968 is unconscionable and unforgivable.
Although she hastily offered a half-hearted apology for her
detestable remarks, it's simply too little, too late.
We are quickly approaching the 40th anniversary of RFK's
assassination. And in many ways, this year's presidential cam-
paign shares a great deal in common with its 1968 counterpart.
Then, as now, the nation faced grave uncertainty, was embroiled
in a tragic and unnecessary war and was intensely divided.
Likewise, then, as now, there was a candidate who inspired a
movement for change, as millions of Americans dared to hope
for a future untainted by war, greed and corruption. That vision
for change was snuffed out by an assassin's bullet. We pray that
this year's campaign renders a different result.
Obama has called Clinton's comments "careless" and has
given her the benefit of the doubt. We find the comments
abominable, and we view them as proof that it's well past time
for her to exit the race.

Text-messaging trei
Imagine a chic sushi restaurant filled with beautiful
patrons in swanky outfits but without the chatter
and laughter that usually permeate such an estab-
lishment.
The dominant sound is instead the clickety-click of
thumbs on cell phone key pads.
That's right - the swanky patrons have been re-
duced to robots, preferring to send all communication
to their date and waiter via text messaging.
You can imagine what it would be like, right? Are
we that far away from this telephone service provider
fantasy?
CellSigns Inc., a mobile applications corporation,
posted on its Web site, www.cellsigns.com, that as of
December 2006, 18.5 billion text messages are sent every
month.
And that number has grown by 250 percent each year
for the past two years.
CellSigns also noted that Verizon Wireless projects
that its text messages per month will rise to an all-time
high of 2 billion within two years.
Granted, text messaging has its benefits.
But we have all seen those people at parties, doc-
tors' offices, classes and more who would rather send
text messages than participate in anything that would
require them to speak.
All of us have tried to have a conversations with
people who can only say "yeah," "really?" or "uh-huh"
between the rapid clickety-click of their cell phones
when sending text messages.

of mental and orthopedic health
that suggest text messaging is get-

British telephone experts have classified a new pho-

Nomophobia, which is short for no phone syndrome,
is an intense fear of losing a cell phone or being out of
cell phone coverage.
Symptoms that occur when a nomophobic individual
loses a phone or goes out of cell phone coverage include
anxiety attacks and panic symptoms.
One 2006 study conducted by YouGov, a British re-
search and consulting firm, suggested that 53 percent
of Britain's 45 million cell phone users suffer from this
syndrome.

Letters to the Editor
Alligator features insensitive cartoon
Shame on you, Alligator! I was extremely
offended and surprised by the cartoon associ-
ated with the Opinions section in the May 22
edition of the Alligator. I cannot believe the
editors chose to depict the person suppos-
edly robbing the U.S. with a gun as having the
black hands of an African American.
Why did the hands have to be black? It
is disturbing the editors would be so willing
to promote the racist stereotype of African
Americans as criminals.


I do not mean to imply that the editors
are racist, but you are, at the very least,
insensitive. The Alligator should be more
careful to avoid racist messages that can be
conveyed through imagery, however inad-
vertently.

Editor's Note: The cartoonist's intention on
Thursday was to depict gloved hands.


Grad students are qualified teachers
I agree with Michael Walker's letter to the
editor in the May 13 edition of the Alligator,
which states that professors are the most im-
portant part of a university, and I share his
concern about the layoffs and hiring freeze
currently affecting UF. However, his criticism
of graduate students teaching in the English
department is deeply offensive. I have looked
into the graduate students teaching upper di-
vision courses in the fall, and they are, without
exception, qualified, intelligent professionals

with active research careers - in some cases
more active than some of the professors in the
department.
I agree wholeheartedly more hiring is
needed in the English department and else-
where, and nothing compares to the teaching
of our best faculty members. But to suggest
that having graduate students teach reduces
UF's quality to less than that of a community
college is both offensive and inaccurate.

Democrats snatching defeat from the jaws of victory


Being a Democrat has been ex-
tremely frustrating for the last
few years.
I've watched the party I sup-
port win the Congress, reflecting
a stirring public indictment of the
Iraq War. I've watched that same
Congress proceed to do absolutely
nothing to stop the war, sitting back
in their armchairs while billions of
additional dollars and thousands of
troops have been poured into Iraq.
I then watched that same party put
forth two candidates for the presi-


dency whose ideas on leaving Iraq
are virtually indistinguishable and
who subsequently search one an-
other for flaws while the pro-war el-
ephants in the room plot an attack.
It's easy enough to blame Hillary.
I am struggling to find words to de-
scribe the situation that don't assign
blame. Perhaps she is to blame.
I know that it's not in a politi-
cian's nature to admit defeat until
the numbers are indisputable, but
that attitude is going to result in four
more years of the Republicans.


Sean Brown it is time
U-Wire for Hillary
to decide
whether it is
more important for her to be presi-
dentorforaDemocrattobepresident.
Democrats are aching to unite
around a candidate.
It is clear from the 75,000-strong
crowd that came to see him speak
in Portland, Oregon last week that
Barack Obama is reinvigorating a
party that was left for dead after the
blundering campaign of John Kerry.
We're finally a party with a mission


again, a party that wants change
and knows how to go about getting
it. The only problem is that we don't
actually have a candidate yet.
Every time we try to give Obama
the reins, Hillary is there to slap
the donkey until it kicks again.
Ever since Obama won on Super
Tuesday, there has been an energy
among Democrats, building to the
point where friends who I had no
idea were even remotely politically
inclined were joining me in celebra-
tion when Obama took North
Carolina. North Carolina chose the


nominee, and we were part of it.
But we're Democrats. We'll find
some way to blow it. We'll fumble
the opening kickoff and spend the
entire first half trying to find our
rhetoric again. We'll let some stupid
ad hurt our feelings to the point
where we focus on it for an entire
debate. We'll riot at the conven-
tion or let our chads hang. We'll
find some way to screw it up, if
Hillary doesn't screw it up for us.
I sure hope I'm wrong.

Matching funds cut


* MONEY SUPPOSED TO
MATCH UF DONATIONS.

By TRAVIS PILLOW
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF officials are working to
cope with the loss of two state-
funded gift matching programs
eliminated by the Florida
Legislature in the most recent
state budget.
More than $75 million in
state money, which would
have matched donor contri-
butions to UF through the
Alec P. Courtelis Facilities
Enhancement Challenge Grant
Program and the University
Major Gifts Program, now
hangs in the balance, according
to UF officials.
The donor contributions
were made a time when the
state's policy was to match the
funds.
Ed Poppell, UF vice presi-
dent of business affairs, said
two large projects - the expan-
sion of the Ham Museum of Art
and the construction of William
R. Hough Hall - were eligible
for about $10 million each in
Courtelis grants, which help
fund construction projects.
As a result of the
Legislature's decision, UF will
only receive about $160,000
this year of the $28 million
requested from the program,
Poppell said.
Leslie Bram, chief operating


officer of the UF Foundation,
said the university is looking
for other ways to make up for
the loss of funding or to ensure
the matching gifts will be made
up by the Legislature in the
future so that the projects can
continue as planned.
"At this point it's completely
in limbo," Bram said. "But the
university's plan is to go for-
ward."
Bram said UF currently has
$47.5 million
UF in pending
Projects requests from
the University
Major Gifts Program.
It provides money for
academic programs, including
scholarships, professorships
and research funds.
The program fully matches
any grant of over $2 million and
percentages of donations over
$100,000 on a sliding scale.
Matt Fajack, UF's chief
financial officer, said losing
matching funds could also
make potential donors wary
when it comes to giving money
to university endowments in
the future.
Fajack said he believes that
the Legislature could catch up
on gift-matching in the future,
something it has done in past
years.
"They haven't said they'll
never give it to us," he said.
"They could come back
at any time and make up for
matches they missed."

UF takes 2nd in bridge contest


Steel bars and hard hats
filled the O'Connell Center this
weekend for the 17th annual
National Student Steel Bridge
Competition.
More than 40 teams from
across the country competed in
the college contest, which evalu-
ates each team's approximately
20-foot-long, 145-pound models
of steel bridges.
UF's team finished second
overall. Kyle McLemore, UF
engineering junior and member
of UF's team, said the winning
University of California, Berkeley
team finished the assembly phase
of the competition in 3.64 minutes
- only about four-tenths of a sec-
ond faster than UF's time.
"This is the closest
thing to sports at a tech
school."
Kevin O'Leary
Illinois team captain

Once a structure was built,
judges placed 2,500 pounds -on
each bridge to measure its deflec-
tion, or how deep the bridge bent
under weight.
James Falls, the event's direc-
tor, said the goal is to make the
bridge's deflection as small as
possible.
Kevin O'Leary, American
Society of Civil Engineers cap-
tain at the Illinois Institute of
Technology, said the competition
was exciting from the perspective
of a small college.
"This is the closest thing to
sports at a tech school," O'Leary
said.

Couple donates $1M to UF for disease research


Will establish fund to study disease causing blindness


By VICTORIA WINKLER
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF officials were presented with an
oversized check for $1 million Thursday
in hopes that a cure will be found for a
disease that causes blindness.
Robert and Debbie Forbis, owners of
one of the state's largest electrical con-
tractors, were given a small plaque in
exchange for their donation at a ceremony
held in the Founder's Gallery of the
Stetson Medical Sciences Building at UF's
Health Science Center.
The donation will go to the College of
Medicine's department of ophthalmology
to establish a research fund for optic nerve
hypoplasia, a disease impairing the vision
of the couple's 11-month-old grandson,
Taylor.


Several top-ranking state and UF offi-
cials were on hand to speak about the do-
nation, including Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp,
UF President Bernie Machen, Dr. Bruce
Kone, former dean of the College of
Medicine, and Dr. Shalesh Kaushal, as-
sistant professor of ophthalmology and
director of vitreoretinal services.
Kaushal said he hopes the gift will al-
low UF to further its research into possible
sight-restoring treatments of optic nerve
hypoplasia with umbilical cord stem cells,-
a treatment used in other countries but not
yet approved in the U.S.
Optic nerve hypoplasia is a disease in
which the nerve that transmits signals
from the eye to the brain does not develop
properly.
Forbis said it is a leading cause of blind-
ness in children.


Despite possible progress seen in other
countries using stem cell research, he said
there is no research on stem cell cures for
the disease in the U.S.
"How much would you pay for the
gift of sight, especially for your
child? It is a priceless gift."
Jeff Kottkamp
Lieutenant Governor of Florida


Forbis said he chose UF to receive the
donation on former Gov. Jeb Bush's rec-
ommendation. He added that some adult
stem cell research was already in progress
at UF.
Forbis is focused on stem cell research
as the solution because of the success his
father experienced after receiving stem


cell treatments in Thailand for his heart
condition.
He said he was also encouraged by the
story of a 6-year-old girl whose sight was
restored after receiving stem cell treat-
ments in China.
The source of the girl's recovery is a
matter of contention among American
ophthalmologists, but he thinks the possi-
bility of a cure warrants further research.
Forbis said he hopes his donation will
find a cure for all children in the U.S. who
"live in darkness" and cannot travel out-
side of the country for treatment.
Kottkamp described the gift as an
amazing gesture and asked those present
to consider the Forbis family's battle and
generosity in bringing a cure for the dis-
ease to the U.S.
"How much would you pay for the
gift of sight, especially for your child?"
he said.
"It is a priceless gift."


UF spokeswoman cites Machen's lack of confidence in Kone's removal

begin, Fortner said.
Kone came under fire in early
April when it was revealed he ad-
mitted a student that the college's
admissions committee rejected.
Sikes would not say for sure if
the decision to remove Kone from
his position was related to the ad-
missions scandal.
"It is no one incident," she
said.
On April 4, Kone met with UF
officials to discuss his decision
to admit Benjamin Mendelsohn,
the son of a wealthy Republican
contributor who had not taken
the MCAT.
After the meeting, Kone sent
a critical e-mail to the officials,
including Machen and Barrett, in
response to their "pathetic" reac-
tion to the uproar.
"It's a small town. There are
small minds," he wrote. "But for
crap's sakes, and speaking strictly
as an alumnus, wake up. You are
talented. Start leading."
On May 6, Kone apologized for
his "hurtful e-mail" at a College of


Medicine Faculty Council meet-
ing. He sent out another e-mail
that night that summed up his
apology.
"It was disrespectful and
demeaning to our leaders, our
University, and our community,
and it was just plain wrong," he
wrote.
In the same e-mail, he revealed
some of Mendelsohn's qualifi-
cations that had not appeared
in media reports, including an
"exceptional" record of civic
and health policy leadership and
involvement in Northwestern
University's Honors Program in
Medical Education, which does
not require an MCAT.
"He meets the high academic
standards we have set for our
medical students, and he is ev-
ery bit as qualified as our Junior
Honors students who are so suc-
cessful when they move on to our
medical school," he wrpte.
Because the leak of
Mendelsohn's name to the media
may have violated federal privacy
laws, it sparked a UF investiga-
tion of e-mails from members of
the admissions committee, some
of which included students.


Police release sketch of man suspected of attacking Haile Plantation jogger


HAlLE, from page 1


"We're dealing' with an individual
who's very brazen and obviously danger-
ous," said Lt. Stephen Maynard, spokes-
man for the Alachua County Sheriff's
Office.
A passing jogger interrupted the attack
and witnessed the man get into a dark-col-
ored four-door sedan.
The sketch of the suspect was released
Saturday evening, and it is about the
fourth sketch that was created from the
victim's details of her attacker.
A forensic artist from the Clay County
Sheriff's Office created the final sketch by
hand, and the victim approved it before its
release.
The victim described her attacker as a


black male in his late 30s to early 40s who
was less than six feet tall and had a me-
dium build.
He also had no facial hair, and he was
wearing black shorts and a black shirt at
the time of the incident. He was armed
with a silver-colored handgun.
The Alachua County Sheriff's Office
has received dozens of tips so far, and
deputies are following up on all of the
leads, Maynard said.
A reward has been created for anyone
who helps police identify and arrest a sus-
pect in this case, he said. The reward fund
is approaching $20,000. An anonymous
donor affiliated with UF donated $10,000,
Maynard said.
Anyone who wants to donate to the re-
ward fund can visit the main lobby of the
sheriff's office during regular hours with


either cash or a check.
If the sheriff's office doesn't reward
the money within 24 months, donors can
either get their money back or keep it in
the fund.
"We're hopeful that it's not going to
take two years to catch this guy," Maynard
said.
He said law enforcement officers would
love to see the suspect sentenced to life in
prison.
"We would like for him to never see the
light of day again outside of a prison cell,"
Maynard said.
Police have stepped up patrols in Haile
and the surrounding area.
The patrols were very successful
Saturday night, Maynard said.
Deputies stopped a suspicious car
at 46th Boulevard in Haile and found a


suspect wanted for homicide out in Palm
Beach County, he said.
"The patrols are yielding results,"
Maynard said.
Police are also holding a commu-
nity meeting Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the
Kanapaha Middle School cafeteria.
The sheriff's office will provide the lat-
est update on the case as well as discuss
crime prevention.

No. 1 Gators Oklahoma-bound


* UF HAS NEVER BEEN TO
THE WORLD SERIES BEFORE.

By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

Stacey Nelson stood in the circle
one pitch away from the Women's
College World Series as more than
2,000 screaming fans rose to their
feet.
Then, with one swing of her arm
Nelson sent the fans into an uproar
and a flood of teammates onto the
field.
Ali Gardiner gave coach Tim
Walton a bath of bright orange
Gatorade while her teammates
danced along with Nelson in the
center of the field.
It took nine innings, but the
Gators (67-3) knocked off the
Golden Bears (43-27) 4-2 in the
NCAA Super Regional, sweeping
the best of three series 2-0. UF won
the first game Friday 4-2.
The second game, the Gators'
67th win of the year, tied the NCAA
Division 1 record for victories in a
season.
"What a great day," Walton
said. "What a great day for all these
young ladies. I can't be any more
proud of this group right now."
After entering the top of the
ninth tied 2-2, the Gators got their
biggest hit of the postseason from
someone who hadn't seen much
success yet.
Freshman shortstop Megan
Bush, who had gone 0-3 in the
series, blasted the game-winning
home run over the right field wall.
It was the 13th homer of the sea-
son for Bush.
"A little bit of weight was lifted
off my shoulders," Bush said. "I
have been in a slump the last
couple of games, and the only way
that I know how to get out of it is to

against California in the NCAA Super Regional Championship.


keep going up there and trying my
best. It was just a great way to end
the series."
Nelson had a feeling that some-
thing big was about to happen
when Bush stepped up to the plate.
"I didn't want to jinx it, but I


was thinking that, 'You know this
girl is Megan's kind of pitcher,'"
Nelson said. "I just had it in my
head that she was going to knock it
somewhere."

Team claims No. 2 seed in NCAA Tallahassee Regional


By SHANNON McCARTHY
Alligator Staff Writer
smccarthy@alligator.org

It has been three years since the Gators
have made the NCAA's field of 64. In 2005,
they were one of the last two teams standing
in the College World Series. This year, the road
to Omaha winds through the home of their
rivals.


The UF baseball team learned on Monday
it will be sent to the Tallahassee Regional as the
No. 2 seed.
It didn't matter where they were headed.
For the Gators, knowing they will be playing
in a regional was more than enough.
"I'm just really excited to be in," shortstop
Cole Figueroa said. "Wherever we ended up,
we were all going to be excited. It's the first
time for a lot of us to be in a regional."


"No one really expected them to be
here."
Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach

Only three current Gators - first baseman
Brandon McArthur, designated hitter Bryson
Barber and pitcher Stephen Locke - have
seen NCAA Regional play before, all during


that magical 2005 run.
Excitement was the emotion and the catch-
word of the day for a team that many did not
expect to see the postseason this year.
"We're excited to be in the field," coach
Kevin O'Sullivan said. "I'm excited for the
players. They've worked hard. No one really
expected them to be here. They were picked

Team-wide effort


key to UF success

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

The final pitch of the season was thrown at Katie Seashole
Pressly Stadium on Saturday, marking the last time a game
will be played in Gainesville this year.
Before the first pitch of the season ever left Stacey
Nelson's hand and landed in Kristina Hilberth's glove, the
No. 1 Gators (67-3) set one goal - to reach the Women's
College World Series.
Now that the team has burst on to the national scene
going to the WCWS for the first time in school history, the
media coverage has intensified.
After each day of games in Regional
and Super Regional competition, a few
players from the team would sit with their
coach and answer a barrage of questions.
Nelson along with Walton and sopho-
more Francesca Enea became the faces
of a team that tied the NCAA record for
most wins in a season. Arizona, Illinois-
Paculba Chicago and Tennessee have all posted 67
win seasons.
But it hasn't just been those familiar faces who have
chipped in. UF has had help throughout its entire lineup in
getting those 67 wins and punching its ticket to Oklahoma
City.
Throughout the season, Walton and the rest of the team
have pointed to the contributions of the freshmen when ex-.
plaining the team's success.
Aja Paculba has hit second in the Gators' lineup for the
majority of the season and showed why she is one of the
team's best offensive weapons. The second baseman went 3
for 6 with two walks, two RBIs and two runs scored against
the Golden Bears.
She raised her average to .340 and is tied for the team lead
with 61 runs.

Nelson throws two more pitching gems as No. 1 Gators shut down Bears


SOFT, from page 17

Francesca Enea was standing in the dug-
out with Nelson during the at-bat.
"I did this cheer that we only do on spe-
cial occasions, but I just did it real quietly to
Stacey," Enea said. "Then I was like 'she's go-
ing to get a hit because I did the cheer', and
she did."
The Gators would go on to add another
run in the inning when Aja Paculba knocked
in sophomore Corrie Brooks to put the Gators
up 4-2.


"That was huge for us," Walton said. "We
talked before the game about the bottom of
our lineup having to come through for us.
Megan hits the shot and then Corrie Brooks
adds a hit later that helps us to get an impor-
tant insurance run."
Nelson would force the first two Cal bat-
ters to ground out in the bottom of the ninth
before striking out Vickers to send the Gators
to Oklahoma City and the first Women's
College World Series appearance in school
history.
Nelson was solid all day for the Gators,
striking out nine batters in nine innings of


"Our goal was to get to the College
World Series, so now we're going
to have to readjust our goals a
little bit."
Tim Walton
UF softball coach

work and giving up no earned runs.
"Stacey Nelson pitched amazing," Cal
third baseman Katie Vickers said. "She was
able to hold us to just two runs."


For UF, defeating a program like
California signals their arrival on a national
level. The Bears have been to 23 consecutive
NCAA regionals and won a national champi-
onship in 2002.
Before the series Walton said that
California was the type of program that UF
aspired to be. Now it's the Bears who are
wishing they could switch places with the
Gators.
"Our goal was to get to the College World
Series, so now we're going to have to readjust
our goals a little bit," Walton said. "Anyone
can win it."


Only 3 current players have seen NCAA Regional play, team's first since 2005


BASE, from page 17

to finish eleventh in the league,
and they weren't. ranked in any
preseason polls or anything. We're
excgjed, but I think we're proud to
have earned it."
Of course, O'Sullivan and the
Gators wouldn't have minded a
home regional, but the coach said he
wasn't surprised by UF's draw.
"It makes sense," O'Sullivan
said. "I figured if we weren't going
to host at home, we were going to be
a No. 2 seed somewhere.
"Whether we're playing at home
as a host or whether we're play-


ing [in Tallahassee] is irrelevant.
Everybody's got an equal shot now.
The road is a little more difficult
when you have to go on the road,
but we have enough talent that if we
play well, we'll be okay."
Figueroa certainly wasn't disap-
pointed with their regional destina-
tion. The sophomore, a Tallahassee
native, was happy to be going home
for a bit, and his family didn't have a
problem with the situation, either.
"They're excited," Figueroa said
with a laugh. "They don't have to
drive."
The shortstop's phone had been
ringing off the hook since the an-
nouncement during Monday's
NCAA Selection Show on ESPN.


"I've gotten about thirty phone
calls so far [from friends and fam-
ily]," Figueroa said. "Lots of phone
calls and texts. They'll definitely
come out and support us. Hopefully,
we can give them a good show."
It won't be an
Easy road for the
Gators (34-22), who
' :=- � will face No. 3 seed
Baseball Tulane (37-20-1)
Friday at 1 p.m.
at Dick Howser Stadium. While
O'Sullivan tabbed junior Patrick
Keating (8-1, 3.47 ERA) as his game
one starter, Tulane will likely coun-
ter with Conference USA pitcher
of the year Shooter Hunt (9-3, 2.45
ERA). Hunt ranks in the top five


nationally with 119 strikeouts in 92
innings of work.
Figueroa.faced Hunt while play-
ing in the Cape Cod League last
summer and knows the difficult task
the Gators have in front of them.
"I just remember he was re-
ally good," Figueroa said. "He had
a very good fastball, good off-speed
stuff.. .pretty much a prototypical
Cape pitcher. He's going to come at
you with fastballs.
"It's going to be fun, and it's go-
ing to be a battle. He's going to give
us a tough game, and we're just go-
ing to have to go out there and kind
of produce some runs off of him."
That will be easier said than done,
especially if the offense continues the


struggles they encountered during
their short stint in the Southeastern
Conference Tournament in Hoover,
Ala., last week. The Gators dropped
the first two games of the tourna-
ment and were sent home early after
poor performances on the mound
and at the plate.
But Figueroa said he thinks the
team has put those games behind
them and is focused on the task at
hand.
"We've had some adversity this

Gators finish disappointing ninth at championships


* UF HAD TO DEAL WITH DIFFICULT
WEATHER DURING THE TOURNEY.

STAFF REPORT
After winning its first regional title since
1986, the UF women's golf team had national
championship aspirations.
Those aspirations quickly became de-
pressed. The Gators dug themselves into a
hole after the first round and weren't ever able
to fully recover, finishing ninth at the NCAA
Championships in Albuquerque, N.M.
"We had a fantastic year," coach Jill Briles-
Hinton said. "The team is disappointed, but
we had to play really hard just to get to where
we finished today. They just couldn't get any-
thing going on that first day and we played


hard the rest of the time through horrible
conditions."
The Gators shot a final-round 299 to finish
with a 72-hole total of 1196 (301-299-297-299)
(+44). It was the fifth time the Gators have fin-
ished in the top 10 in NCAA play with Briles-
Hinton at the helm.
Weather played a major factor in UF's
performance in the tournament, as the Gators
had to battle high winds and wait out multiple
suspensions of play over the course of the
four-day tournament.
But it was the poor play in the first round
that made it hard for the Gators to regain
ground on the leaderboard.
"The girls were ready, but I think that they
came out a little bit too worked up and too ex-
cited," Briles-Hinton said of the first day of the


tournament. "They did get settled down, but it
just never clicked for them."
Fittingly, it was senior Tiffany Chudy who
led UF on the green. Chudy shot a 2-under-
70 on the day, which put her at 27th place. It
was a personal best for the senior, as well as
the lowest score posted by a
Gator.
4A. "I am so happy for Tiffany
- because that was just an
amazing way for her to finish
GOlf her senior year," Briles-Hinton
said.
The Gators coach also expressed pride in
redshirt junior Ornella Jouven, who had her
worst performance of the tournament with a
77 on the last day but managed to finish tied
for 34th place overall.


Freshmen Jessica Yadloczky and Hannah
Yun performed well in their first NCAA tour-
nament. Yadloczky recorded an 80 (+8) on the
final day of the tournament to land her in a tie
for 48th place, while Yun carded a 4-over'76 to
finish in a tie for 65th place. Redshirt freshman
Nicole Schachner carded a 76 (+4) during the
final round to tie her best performance of the
week and finished tied for 109th.
The ninth-place finish at the NCAA tour-
nament capped an impressive year for the
Gators.
UF won five tournaments this season,
including its eighth Southeastern Conference
Championship and the first NCAA regional
title in school history. The five wins were the
most UF has won in a single season since the
1994-95 squad won five as well.

Briceno to leave one


court for another


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Nestor Briceno got a head start
to the courtroom a little sooner
than he would've liked.
The law school hopeful was
eliminated in the second round
of NCAA singles play when his
comeback attempt came up short
against Pepperdine's Bassam
Beidas 3-6, 3-6, 7-5 on Thursday.
Beidas would then go on to upset
Georgia's No. 4 Travis Hegelson
6-1,6-4.
If Briceno had upset Beidas,
he would've nailed down an
All-American honor, something
coach Andy Jackson said he
wanted "very badly for him." But
instead Briceno, one of just two
seniors on the team, will have to
settle for finishing fifth all-time
in UF singles wins at 105.
"Nestor, in my opinion, hasn't
gotten the credit for his play of
tennis," Jackson said. "He's been
overshadowed by [Jesse] Levine
or Greg [Ouellette]. To be top five
all-time in wins at Florida speaks


to the level that we all knew he
had. "
After coming in at No. 91 last
fall, Briceno's ranking - and
play - improved throughout his
senior year as his win totals con-
tinued to climb up the charts.
"I wouldn't want to be in
the law room with him ei-
ther because I have a feel-
ing his toughness is going
to grow."
Andy Jackson
UF men's tennis coach

"For four years he was one
of the guys that you definitely
could count on," Jackson said.
"If we could get it close and put
Nestor in a chance to win it, then
we felt good about our chances."
And for someone who, accord-
ing to Jackson, had made tennis
his top priority in life up until
college, getting any type of de-
gree is an accomplishment - let
alone making it into law school.

Kone fired from position as med school dean E HE MAY RETAIN A FACULTY POSITION IN THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE. By ELIZABETH LEVA and KATIE SANDERS Alligator Writers Dr. Bruce Kone was removed from his position as dean of UF's College of Medicine late Thursday afternoon, more than a month after his controversial decision to overrule a medical school admis'sions committee was made public. Kone, who became dean in May 2007, will retain a faculty position in the department of medicine in the division of nephrology, according to a Thursday email from UF President Bernie Machen and Doug Barrett, senior vice president of health affairs. Janine Sikes, UF spokeswoman, said Kone would retain the salary he earned as dean in his faculty position. "Dr. Machen and Dr. Barrett no longer have confidence in Dean Kone's ability to lead the College of Medicine," Sikes said. Sikes would not comment further, saying it was an internal issue.

Dr. Michael Good, formerly the college's semor associate dean for clinical affairs, has been appointed acting dean with the expectation that an interim dean will be named after discussions with faculty members, stated the e-mail. Good, an anesthesiologist, joined the faculty in 1988. Calls and e-mails to Kone and Good were unreturned or forwarded to UF representatives.

When he saw law enforcement, he set the cup down and walked away from it, Hallett said. Police smelled the amber-colored liquid and realized it was alcohol, she said. Noah was arrested and walked to GPD's downtown annex, where a cannabis cigarette was found in his pocket. Noah was issued a notice to appear in court, and his court date is set for June.

TUESDAY, MAY 27, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 3 Cuts make UF admissions tough for SFCC students N UF WILL TAKE 30 PERCENT FEWER TRANSFER STUDENTS. By KATE HELLER Alligator Contributing Writer Disappointment has become a recurring theme in the advisement office at SFCC. Budget cuts at UF have led to a decreased admissions rate for transferring students as admissions requirements at UF have only grown tougher. "I have found that students are becoming very anxious because one of their major goals is to get into UF," said Emilia Hodge, the director of the advisement center at SFCC. Over the past few months, the center has been pushing students to consider all of their options. Students are encouraged to apply to transfer to more than one institution, but SFCC is still doing its best to cater to those devoted to UP. But in addition to cutting back transfer admissions, UF has also 'The admissions process is becoming highly competitive, and now it's even more just a matter of space." Emilia Hodge SFCC advisement center director tightened requirements for those applying. "The admissions process is becoming highly competitive," Hodge said, "and now it's even more just a matter of space." Although SFCC's budget has also been cut, its admission policies have not changed. It hopes to not lose applicants as a direct effect of the decreasing rate of UF transfers. UF is accepting 30 percent fewer transfer students than in previous years, and no exceptions are made for SFCC students. "You get a lot of people who go to Santa Fe and think it is going to be easier to come to UFI," said William Lauffer, a program assistant at the UF office of admissions. "That is just not true. They don't get any extra considerations." The office of admissions at UF receives visits from many students in the transfer process wondering if they are taking the right classes and when to apply. The biggest concern, however, is whether there is room available, Lauffer said. "The lack of funding from the state already necessitated transfer cuts," he said. "It doesn't help that our standards get higher and higher."

4, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MAY 27, 2008 Jewish center honors historic scholars on holiday N LAG B'OMER AND ISRAELI STATEHOOD WERE CELEBRATED THURSDAY. Despite dreary weather, festivities for the ninth annual Lag B'Omer barbecue at the Lubavitch-Chabad Jewish Student and Community Center were lively Thursday night. The center combined the Jewish holiday of Lag B'Omer with the 60th anniversary of Israel's statehood, celebrating with a kosher barbecue, pony rides, face painting, crafts and live music from the Gainesville Chutzpa Band. Rabbi Berl Goldman said about 150 people attended the celebration and estimated that $300 was raised from ticket sales. Lag B'Omer is a Jewish holiday celebrating the lives of sages Rabbi Akiva, who promoted Jewish unity during the Roman occupation of Israel, and Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, who revealed the mystical secrets of the Torah, called Kabbalah. Local The holiday, celebrated on the News 33rd day after the second day of Passover, also represents a break in the mourning period between Passover and Shavuot. It marks the end of a plague that affected Akiva's disciples. In Israel, thousands of Jews march through the streets in parades and demonstrations during the holiday. Goldman said the festivities would have continued if it rained, but he was glad the weather cooperated. "I prayed for God to move the clouds a little east or a little west and help us out," Goldman said. -JESSICA BRANDI ENVIRONMENTAL IS,_EI Beetles threaten Florida laurel trees By ALYSSA LaRENZIE Alligator Staff Writer Beetles about the size of Abraham Lincoln's nose on the penny are swiftly eliminating trees across the southeastern U.S. The fungus that they carry gives laurel trees a disease called laurel wilt, killing them. The most commonly affected laurel is the redbay tree. Cross Creek resident Tom Lawyer has about 10 acres of land and about twenty dead redbay trees. "They were hard to pick out before, but it's getting easier now," Lawyer said. "They're the dead ones." Lawyer is one of the first in Alachua County to witness the laurel wilt disease in his own backyard. About a year ago, the beetle started destroying laurel trees in Alachua County, said Bud Mayfield, forest entomologist at the Florida Division of Forestry The species causing the laurel wilt disease is invasive and nonnative. It was carried over from Asia, most likely from infected wooden crates, Mayfield said. "It's not a huge problem in Alachua County yet," he said, "but it will probably get worse." Laurel wilt made its entrance in the U.S. in 2002 near Savannah, Ga. In 2005, the disease reached Florida. It will most likely extend into South Florida where it could harm another tree in the laurel family -the avocado tree, Mayfield said. Miami-Dade County has the most avocado farmers in Florida, and the introduction of the nonnative beetle could ruin the crops and jeopardize the income of the farmers, he said. "It's a big tragedy that we keep losing these species one after the other." Jim Weimer Paynes Prarie biologist In Alachua County, the beetle will not shrink any wallets, but it could kill a lot of trees and the species that depend on them. In Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park, the elimination of redbay would erase a source of food for birds, said Jim Weimer, the park biologist. Though the beetle has not yet hit the wetland forest, there is little that can be done to prevent it and a lot that could be lost, Weimer said. "It's a big tragedy that we keep losing these species one after the other," he said. +HAPPENSTANCE. ar Locals spend weekends picking berries at Cross Creek field Phillip Whittington, 5, picks a blueberry at South Moon Farm in Cross Creek Sunday afternoon Phillip picked blueberries with his mom, Susan Whittington, and her sister, Megan Romano, for their families and for Romano's daycare class.

The organic blueberry farm, located about 25 minutes from UF's campus at 15912 South CR 325, has been open for people to pick their own berries since the mid-1980s, said Judy Harris, a Cross Creek resident who volunteered at the farm Memorial Day weekend. South Moon is open for picking on weekends from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. With about 2.5 acres of blueberry bushes to search for ripe berries, most customers spend at least 30 minutes in the field, and most pick about five pounds, said Mickey Angell, a Cross Creek resident who worked Sunday. The farm provides colorful buckets for customers to put their collected fruit in. When people return to the front of the field, the blueberries are poured out of the bucket, weighed on an old scale and paid for by the pound. Each pound costs $3. -TEXT BY ALYSSA LARENZIE PHOTO BY MARIANNE LIJEWSKI Volunteers line Eighth Avenue with memorial tombstones They paid tribute to 4,581 soldiers who died at war By CHRISTOPHER HAYES Alligator Contributing Writer As students piled out of bars early Saturday morning, the day was just beginning for dozens of volunteers who unloaded cardboard tombstones for the annual Memorial Mile. The memorial, located at Northwest 34th Street and Northwest Eighth Avenue, served as a tribute to the thousands of soldiers who have died in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. By dawn, their cemetery was complete and ran the length of Eighth Avenue's Solar Walk; which is about one mile long. There were 48 tombstones between the Solar Walk's Mercury and Venus. Signs indicating events in the timeline of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts ran along the road. Thousands of names extended past the sign that read, "'Mission Accomplished' May 1st 20031" "We had more than expected, unfortunately." Jessica Newman press coordinator for Veterans for Peace Stephen Hunter, a volunteer for the event, said it took 46 pages to list the names on all the tombstones. There were six pages for those who died in Afghanistan and 40 for the soldiers whose lives were lost in Iraq. Each of the 4,581 vinyl cardboard tombstones on display came with a brief obituary listing the soldier's name, date of death, branch of service, rank and hometown. Soldiers with local ties had a miniature American flag on top of their tombstones. "It touches me every time I walk it," Hunter said. The Memorial Mile was a joint effort by Code Pink, a women-initiated peace movement, and Veterans for Peace. Jackie Betz, the local coordinator for Gainesville's Code Pink Chapter, offered free pink lemonade and water as well as a shady escape from the heat as people walked by her tent. Volunteers on bikes whizzed past the display, traveling from station to station to check that none of the markers had been disturbed. Since last year's Memorial Mile, the number of tombstones has increased from about 3,800. Veterans for Peace allotted space for this, but the group was still unable to completely plan for the number of casualties. "We had more than expected, unfortunately," said Jessica Newman, press coordinator for Veterans for Peace. Newman said the purpose of the tombstones was to make the deaths a "visual reality." "This isn't a protest," she said. At dusk on Monday, the memorial was taken down and stored for next year. naiiiigist ONLINE For a video of this weekend's veterans memorial, visit www.alligator.org/multimedia.

TUESDAY, MAY 27, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 5 UF study measures effectiveness of cat microchips MICROCHIPS USED TO HELP RETURN MISSING CATS. By CHANTELLE MARCELLE Alligator Contributing Writer Patty Dingman and Anuk do not miss an episode of "Grey's Anatomy." Curled up on Dingman's bed, Anuk, a 4-year-old gray cat, feigns disinterest in the show that Dingman calls their "guilty pleasure." Dingman, a 25-year-old UF veterinary graduate student, said Anuk follows her everywhere around the apartment, and she would hate to lose track of her whiskered friend. Recently, Dingman enrolled Anuk in a UP College of Veterinary Medicine study on the effect of long-term microchip and collar use in returning lost cats to their owners. The study will determine how much more likely a cat is to be returned to its owner if it is wearing certain forms of identification. Three other veterinary schools in the nation are participating in the same study. -Microchips act as permanent identification that can be scanned by animal professionals for information about the pet's owner in case a lost pet is found. The study, headed by internal medicine specialist Dr. Julie Levy, encourages local eat owners to bring their felines in for a free collar and microchip. They are then required to write down observations of their cats' behavior for six months. Levy said the study is important because every year more than 4,000 lost cats end up at local animal control facilities. Few of the cats are wearing any form of identification, she said, which makes it almost impossible to reunite them with their owners. The microchip is inserted with a syringe and doesn't harm the pet, Levy said. Microchips have no known side effects, and tens of millions are already in use in the United States, she said. The UF program offers a new type of microchip that also reads body temperature. The chip is not yet offered on the market, Levy said. Although there is a myth that cats cannot safely wear collars, she said a collar and tag provides a way for people without access to a microchip scanner, such as neighbors, to find a lost cat's owner. All six of Levy's cats have microchips and wear collars. Levy said she is trying to enroll 180 cats in the UF study. In the two months since the program began, 150 have already been enrolled. Dingman admitted she has always felt uncomfortable allowing Anuk to go outside. Before the study, Anuk wore no forms of identification, which made Dingman even more nervous. "He tries to run outside every time you open a door," she said. "I've always chased him down and brought him back inside. I usually don't give him a chance to get very far." Dingman thinks Anuk has adjusted very well to wearing a collar, only scratching at it a few times. "It took me longer to adjust than I think he did just because I'm a really sensitive sleeper, and I could hear him running around at night," she said. Dingman still does not plan on letting Anuk play outside, though. "I don't want him to pick up any bad habits or bring fleas into the house," she said.

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MAY 27, 2008 Editorial Call It Quits Clinton's RFK comments show need to exit race Many observers of this year's historic race for the Democratic presidential nomination have been wondering out loud why Sen. Hillary Clinton hasn't dropped out of the race yet. Sen. Barack Obama has won more states and more pledged delegates, and now he has secured the endorsement of more superdelegates than Clinton. The only thing Clinton has going for her is the popular vote, which she is winning by a slim margin -if you exclude the caucus states of Iowa, Nevada, Maine and Washington and include the renegade primaries of Florida and Michigan (Obama's name wasn't even on the ballot in the latter state). What President Bush might call "fuzzy math" is Clinton's best -well, only -talking point for why she "deserves" to be the Democratic nominee. The dubious nature of her contention is magnified by the complex rhetorical gymnastics and inverted logic inherent in claiming a popular mandate within an electoral process almost as diverse as the states participating in it. Some states hold closed primaries, where only Democrats can cast ballots; some states hold open primaries, where independents and sometimes Republicans can vote; and some states hold caucuses, where participants are predominantly stalwart party activists who have the time and patience to gather and select delegates. Clinton's caveat-laden popular vote calculus is disingenuous, misleading and desperate. But this is politics, after all, where mastery of the art of spin is oftentimes the most significant component of electoral success. And if Clinton can convince the superdelegates to abandon Obama based on this factually impaired popular vote argument, then more power to her. Yet recent comments suggest there's a far more troubling rationale behind Clinton's refusal to exit the Democratic race. On Friday, the former first lady met with a South Dakota newspaper's editorial board in advance of that state's primary next week. When asked why she thought certain segments of the party were calling for her to withdraw from the race, Clinton responded that it just didn't make sense to her, noting that previous Democratic nomination contests have continued deep into the summer months. This is an established fact. The 1980 nomination battle between President Jimmy Carter and Sen. Edward Kennedy and the 1984 race between Vice President Walter Mondale and Sen. Gary Hart were contested all the way to-the Democratic National Conventions of those respective years. Yet Clinton did not reference these examples. Instead, the junior senator from New York spoke the unspeakable, raising the specter of one of the darkest moments in American political history: the assassination of Sen. Robert Kennedy in 1968. "We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June [1968] in Califorina," Clinton said. Invoking the traumatic events of June 5, 1968 is unconscionable and unforgivable. Although she hastily offered a half-hearted apology for her detestable remarks, it's simply too little, too late. We are quickly approaching the 40th anniversary of RFK's assassination. And in many ways, this year's presidential campaign shares a great deal in common with its 1968 counterpart. Then, as now, the nation faced grave uncertainty, was embroiled in a tragic and unnecessary war and was intensely divided. Likewise, then, as now, there was a candidate who inspired a movement for change, as millions of Americans dared to hope for a future untainted by war, greed and corruption. That vision for change was snuffed out by an assassin's bullet. We pray that this year's campaign renders a different result. Obama has called Clinton's comments "careless" and has given her the benefit of the doubt. We find the comments abominable, and we view them as proof that it's well past time for her to exit the race. a l i g a independet florid alligator Joshua Fredrickson OPINIONS EDITOR Devin Culclasure EDITOR Jessica Ponn MANAGING EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Alligator features insensitive cartoon Shame on you, Alligator! I was extremely offended and surprised by the cartoon associated with the Opinions section in the May 22 edition of the Alligator. I cannot believe the editors chose to depict the person supposedly robbing the U.S. with a gun as having the black hands of an African American. Why did the hands have to be black? It is disturbing the editors would be so willing to promote the racist stereotype of African Americans as criminals. I do not mean to imply are racist, but you are, at insensitive. The Alligator s careful to avoid racist mess conveyed through imagery, vertendy.

I agree wholeheartedly more hiring is needed in the English department and elsewhere, and nothing compares to the teaching of our best faculty members. But to suggest that having graduate students teach reduces UF's quality to less than that of a community college is both offensive and inaccurate. Philip Sandifer Ph.D. candidate, English Democrats snatching defeat from the jaws of victory Being a Democrat has been extremely frustrating for the last few years. I've watched the party I support win the Congress, reflecting a stirring public indictment of the Iraq War. I've watched that same Congress proceed to do absolutely nothing to stop the war, sitting back in their armchairs while billions of additional dollars and thousands of troops have been poured into Iraq. I then watched that same party put forth two candidates for the presidency whose ideas on leaving Iraq are virtually indistinguishable and who subsequently search one another for flaws while the pro-war elephants in the room plot an attack. It's easy enough to blame Hillary. I am struggling to find words to describe the situation that don't assign blame. Perhaps she is to blame. I know that it's not in a politician's nature to admit defeat until the numbers are indisputable, but that attitude is going to result in four more years of the Republicans. Sean Brown It is time U-Wire for Hillary to decide whether it is more important for her to be presidentorforaDemocrattobepresident. Democrats are aching to unite around a candidate. It is clear from the 75,000-strong crowd that came to see him speak in Portland, Oregon last week that Barack Obama is reinvigorating a party that was left for dead after the blundering campaign of John Kerry. We're finally a party with a mission again, a party that wants change and knows how to go about getting it. The only problem is that we don't actually have a candidate yet. Every time we try to give Obama the reins, Hillary is there to slap the donkey until it kicks again. Ever since Obarna won on Super Tuesday, there has been an energy among Democrats, building to the point where friends who I had no idea were even remotely politically inclined were joining me in celebration when Obania took North Carolina. North Carolina chose the nominee, and we were part of it. But we're Democrats. We'll find some way to blow it. We'll fumble the opening kickoff and spend the entire first half trying to find our rhetoric again. We'll let some stupid ad hurt our feelings to the point where we focus on it for an entire debate. We'll riot at the convention or let our chads hang. We'll find some way to screw it up, if Hillary doesn't screw it up for us. I sure hope I'm wrong.

8, ALLIGATOR E TUESDAY, MAY 27, 2008 Matching funds cut E MONEY SUPPOSED TO MATCH UF DONATIONS. By TRAVIS PILLOW Alligator Contributing Writer UF officials are working to cope with the loss of two statefunded gift matching programs eliminated by the Florida Legislature in the most recent state budget. More than $75 million in state money, which would have matched donor contributions to UF through the Alec P. Courtelis Facilities Enhancement Challenge Grant Program and the University Major Gifts Program, now hangs in the balance, according to UF officials. The donor contributions were made a time when the state's policy was to match the funds. Ed Poppell, UF vice president of business affairs, said two large projects -the expansion of the Ham Museum of Art and the construction of William R. Hough Hall -were eligible for about $10 million each in Courtelis grants, which help fund construction projects. As a result of the Legislature's decision, UF will only receive about $160,000 this year of the $28 million requested from the program, Poppell said. Leslie Bram, chief operating officer of the UF Foundation, said the university is looking for other ways to make up for the loss of funding or to ensure the matching gifts will be made up by the Legislature in the future so that the projects can continue as planned. "At this point it's completely in limbo," Brain said. "But the university's plan is to go forward." Bram said UF currently has $47.5 million UF in pending Pric~tis requests from the University Major Gifts Program. It provides money for academic programs, including scholarships, professorships and research funds. The program fully matches any grant of over $2 million and percentages of donations over $100,000 on a sliding scale. Matt Fajack, UF's chief financial officer, said losing matching funds could also make potential donors wary when it comes to giving money to university endowments in the future. Fajack said he believes that the Legislature could catch up on gift-matching in the future, something it has done in past years. "They haven't said they'll never give it to us," he said. "They could come back at any time and make up for matches they missed." ON CAMPUS UF takes 2nd in bridge contest Steel bars and hard hats filled the O'Connell Center this weekend for the 17th annual National Student Steel Bridge Competition. More than 40 teams from across the country competed in the college contest, which evaluates each team's approximately 20-foot-long, 145-pound models ~ of steel bridges. UF's team finished second overall. Kyle McLemore, UF engineering junior and member of UF's team, said the winning University of California, Berkeley team finished the assembly phase of the competition in 3.64 minutes -only about four-tenths of a second faster than UF's time. "This is the closest thing to sports at a tech school." Kevin O'Leary Illinois team captain Once a structure was built, judges placed 2,500 pounds on each bridge to measure its deflection, or how deep the bridge bent under weight. James Falls, the event's director, said the goal is to make the bridge's deflection as small as possible.

TUESDAY, MAY 27, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 9 Couple donates $1M to UF for disease research Will establish fund to study disease causing blindness By VICTORIA WINKLER Alligator Contributing Writer UF officials were presented with an oversized check for $1 million Thursday in hopes that a cure will be found for a disease that causes blindness. Robert and Debbie Forbis, owners of one of the state's largest electrical contractors, were given a small plaque in exchange for their donation at a ceremony held in the Founder's Gallery of the Stetson Medical Sciences Building at UF's Health Science Center. The donation will go to the College of Medicine's department of ophthalmology to establish a research fund for optic nerve hypoplasia, a disease impairing the vision of the couple's 11-month-old grandson, Taylor. Several top-ranking state and UF officials were on hand to speak about the donation, including Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp, UF President Bernie Machen, Dr. Bruce Kone, former dean of the College of Medicine, and Dr. Shalesh Kaushal, assistant professor of ophthalmology and director of vitreoretinal services. Kaushal said he hopes the gift will allow UF to further its research into possible sight-restoring treatments of optic nerve hypoplasia with umbilical cord stem cells,a treatment used in other countries but not yet approved in the U.S. Optic nerve hypoplasia is a disease in which the nerve that transmits signals from the eye to the brain does not develop properly. Forbis said it is a leading cause of blindness in children. Despite possible progress seen in other countries using stem cell research, he said there is no research on stem cell cures for the disease in the U.S. "How much would you pay for the gift of sight, especially for your child? It is a priceless gift." Jeff Kottkamp Lieutenant Governor of Florida Forbis said he chose UF to receive the donation on former Gov. Jeb Bush's recommendation. He added that some adult stem cell research was already in progress at UF. Forbis is focused on stem cell research as the solution because of the success his father experienced after receiving stem cell treatments in Thailand for his heart condition. He said he was also encouraged by the story of a 6-year-old girl whose sight was restored after receiving stem cell treatments in China. The source of the girl's recovery is a matter of contention among American ophthalmologists, but he thinks the possibility of a cure warrants further research. Forbis said he hopes his donation will find a cure for all children in the U.S. who "live in darkness" and cannot travel outside of the country for treatment. Kottkamp described the gift as an amazing gesture and asked those present to consider the Forbis family's battle and generosity in bringing a cure for the disease to the U.S. "How much would you pay for the gift of sight, especially for your child?" he said. "It is a priceless gift." UF spokeswoman cites Machen's lack of confidence in Kone's removal Edward Izquierdo / Alligator Former Dean of the College of Medicine Dr. Bruce Kone speaks during a news conference Thursday at the Founder's Gallery while Debbie Forbis, Dr. Shalesh Kaushal and UF President Bernie Machen listen. KONE, from page 1 begin, Fortner said. Kone came under fire in early April when it was revealed he admitted a student that the college's admissions committee rejected. Sikes would not say for sure if the decision to remove Kone from his position was related to the admissions scandal. "It is no one incident," she said. On April 4, Kone met with UF officials to discuss his decision to admit Benjamin Mendelsohn, the son of a wealthy Republican contributor who had not taken the MCAT. After the meeting, Kone sent a critical e-mail to the officials, including Machen and Barrett, in response to their "pathetic" reaction to the uproar. "It's a small town. There are small minds," he wrote. "But for crap's sakes, and speaking strictly as an alumnus, wake up. You are talented. Start leading." On May 6, Kone apologized for his "hurtful e-mail" at a College of Medicine Faculty Council meeting. He sent out another e-mail that night that summed up his apology. "It was disrespectful and demeaning to our leaders, our University, and our community, and it was just plain wrong," he wrote. In the same e-mail, he revealed some of Mendelsohn's qualifications that had not appeared in media reports, including an "exceptional" record of civic and health policy leadership and involvement in Northwestern University's Honors Program in Medical Education, which does not require an MCAT. "He meets the high academic standards we have set for our medical students, and he is every bit as qualified as our Junior Honors students who are so successful when they move on to our medical school," he wrote. Because the leak of Mendelsohn's name to the media may have violated federal privacy laws, it sparked a UF investigation of e-mails from members of the admissions committee, some of which included students. Police release sketch of man suspected of attacking Haile Plantation jogger HAILE,from page 1 "We're dealing, with an individual who's very brazen and obviously dangerous," said Lt. Stephen Maynard, spokesman for the Alachua County Sheriff's Office. A passing jogger interrupted the attack and witnessed the man get into a dark-colored four-door sedan. The sketch of the suspect was released Saturday evening, and it is about the fourth sketch that was created from the victim's details of her attacker. A forensic artist from the Clay County Sheriff's Office created the final sketch by hand, and the victim approved it before its release. The victim described her attacker as a black male in his late 30s to early 40s who was less than six feet tall and had a medium build. He also had no facial hair, and he was wearing black shorts and a black shirt at the time of the incident. He was armed with a silver-colored handgun. The Alachua County Sheriff's Office has received dozens of tips so far, and deputies are following up on all of the leads, Maynard said. A reward has been created for anyone who helps police identify and arrest a suspect in this case, he said. The reward fund is approaching $20,000. An anonymous donor affiliated with UF donated $10,000, Maynard said. Anyone who wants to donate to the reward fund can visit the main lobby of the sheriff's office during regular hours with either cash or a check. If the sheriff's office doesn't reward the money within 24 months, donors can either get their money back or keep it in the fund. "We're hopeful that it's not going to take two years to catch this guy," Maynard said. He said law enforcement officers would love to see the suspect sentenced to life in prison. "We would like for him to never see the light of day again outside of a prison cell," Maynard said. Police have stepped up patrols in Haile and the surrounding area. The patrols were very successful Saturday night, Maynard said. Deputies stopped a suspicious car at 46th Boulevard in Haile and found a suspect wanted for homicide out in Palm Beach County, he said. "The patrols are yielding results," Maynard said. Police are also holding a community meeting Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Kanapaha Middle School cafeteria. The sheriff's office will provide the latest update on the case as well as discuss crime prevention. If anyone has any information regarding the case, call Detective Heather Phillips at 352-367-4185 or Crime Stoppers at 352-372-7867.

No. I Gators Oklahoma-bound 0 UF HAS NEVER BEEN TO THE WORLD SERIES BEFORE. By MIKE DiFERDINANDO Alligator Staff Writer mdiferdinando@alligator.org Stacey Nelson stood in the circle one pitch away from the Women's College World Series as more than 2,000 screaming fans rose to their feet. Then, with one swing of her arm Nelson sent the fans into an uproar and a flood of teammates onto the field. All Gardiner gave coach Tim Walton a bath of bright orange Gatorade while her teammates danced along with Nelson in the center of the field. It took nine innings, but the Gators (67-3) knocked off the Golden Bears (43-27) 4-2 in the NCAA Super Regional, sweeping the best of three series 2-0. UF won the first game Friday 4-2. The second game, the Gators' 67th win of the year, tied the NCAA Division 1 record for victories in a season. "What a great day," Walton said. "What a great day for all these young ladies. I can't be any more proud of this group right now." After entering the top of the ninth tied 2-2, the Gators got their biggest hit of the postseason from someone who hadn't seen much success yet. Freshman shortstop Megan Bush, who had gone 0-3 in the series, blasted the game-winning home run over the right field wall. It was the 13th homer of the season for Bush. "A little bit of weight was lifted off my shoulders," Bush said. "I have been in a slump the last couple of games, and the only way that I know how to get out of it is to Sarah Hsu / Alligator Staff Stacey Nelson throws a practice pitch before the Gators 4-2 win against California in the NCAA Super Regional Championship. keep going up there and trying my best. It was just a great way to end the series." Nelson had a feeling that something big was about to happen when Bush stepped up to the plate. "I didn't want to jinx it, but I was thinking that, 'You know this girl is Megan's kind of pitcher,"' Nelson said. "I just had it in my head that she was going to knock it somewhere."

In 2005, they were one of the last two teams standing in the College World Series. This year, the road to Omaha winds through the home of their rivals. The UF baseball team learned on Monday it will be sent to the Tallahassee Regional as the No. 2 seed. It didn't matter where they were headed. For the Gators, knowing they will be playing in a regional was more than enough. "I'm just really excited to be in," shortstop Cole Figueroa said. "Wherever we ended up, we were all going to be excited. It's the first time for a lot of us to be in a regional." "No one really expected them to be here." Kevin O'Sullivan UF baseball coach Only three current Gators -first baseman Brandon McArthur, designated hitter Bryson Barber and pitcher Stephen Locke -have seen NCAA Regional play before, all during that magical 2005 run. Excitement was the emotion and the catchword of the day for a team that many did not expect to see the postseason this year. "We're excited to be in the field," coach Kevin O'Sullivan said. "I'm excited for the players. They've worked hard. No one really expected them to be here.

Before the first pitch of the season ever left Stacey Nelson's hand and landed in Kristina Hilberth's glove, the No. 1 Gators (67-3) set one goal -to reach the Women's College World Series. Now that the team has burst on to the national scene going to the WCWS for the first time in school history, the media coverage has intensified. After each day of games in Regional and Super Regional competition, a few players from the team would sit with their coach and answer a barrage of questions. Nelson along with Walton and sophomore Francesca Enea became the faces of a team that tied the NCAA record for most wins in a season. Arizona, IllinoisPaculba Chicago and Tennessee have all posted 67 win seasons. But it hasn't just been those familiar faces who have chipped in. UF has had help throughout its entire lineup in getting those 67 wins and punching its ticket to Oklahoma City. Throughout the season, Walton and the rest of the team have pointed to the contributions of the freshmen when ex-_ plaining the team's success. Aja Paculba has hit second in the Gators' lineup for the majority of the season and showed why she is one of the team's best offensive weapons. The second baseman went 3 for 6 with two walks, two RBIs and two runs scored against the Golden Bears. She raised her average to .340 and is tied for the team lead with 61 runs.

"I did this cheer that we only do on special occasions, but I just did it real quietly to Stacey," Enea said. "Then I was like 'she's going to get a hit because I did the cheer', and she did." The Gators would go on to add another run in the inning when Aja Paculba knocked in sophomore Corrie Brooks to put the Gators up 4-2. "That was huge for us," Walton said. "We talked before the game about the bottom of our lineup having to come through for us. Megan hits the shot and then Corrie Brooks adds a hit later that helps us to get an inportant insurance run." Nelson would force the first two Cal batters to ground out in the bottom of the ninth before striking out Vickers to send the Gators to Oklahoma City and the first Women's College World Series appearance in school history. Nelson was solid all day for the Gators, striking out nine batters in nine innings of "Our goal was to get to the College World Series, so now we're going to have to readjust our goals a little bit." Tim Walton UF softball coach work and giving up no earned runs. "Stacey Nelson pitched amazing," Cal third baseman Katie Vickers said. "She was able to hold us to just two runs." For UE defeating a program like California signals their arrival on a national level. The Bears have been to 23 consecutive NCAA regionals and won a national championship in 2002. Before the series Walton said that California was the type of program that UF aspired to be. Now it's the Bears who are wishing they could switch places with the Gators. "Our goal was to get to the College World Series, so now we're going to have to readjust our goals a little bit," Walton said. "Anyone can wm it." Only 3 current players have seen NCA A Regional play, team's first since 2005 BASE, from page 17 to finish eleventh in the league, and they weren't. ranked in any preseason polls or anything. We're exciyd, but I think we're proud to have earned it." Of course, O'Sullivan and the Gators wouldn't have minded a home regional, but the coach said he wasn't surprised by UF's draw. "It makes sense," O'Sullivan said. "I figured if we weren't going to host at home, we were going to be a No. 2 seed somewhere.

Everybody's got an equal shot now. The road is a little more difficult when you have to go on the road, but we have enough talent that if we play well, we'll be okay." Figueroa certainly wasn't disappointed with their regional destination. The sophomore, a Tallahassee native, was happy to be going home for a bit, and his family didn't have a problem with the situation, either. "They're excited," Figueroa said with a laugh. "They don't have to drive." The shortstop's phone had been ringing off the hook since the announcement during Monday's NCAA Selection Show on ESPN.

"He had a very good fastball, good off-speed stuff. pretty much a prototypical Cape pitcher. He's going to come at you with fastballs. "It's going to be fun, and it's going to be a battle. He's going to give us a tough game, and we're just going to have to go out there and kind of produce some runs off of him." That will be easier said than done, especially if the offense continues the struggles they encountered during their short stint in the Southeastern Conference Tournament in Hoover, Ala., last week. The Cators dropped the first two games of the tournament and were sent home early after poor performances on the mound and at the plate. But Figueroa said he thinks the team has put those games behind them and is focused on the task at hand. "We've had some adversity this year and we've dealt with it pretty well when our backs were against the wall," he said.

TUESDAY, MAY 27, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 19 Gators finish disappointing ninth at championships 0 UF HAD TO DEAL WITH DIFFICULT WEATHER DURING THE TOURNEY. STAFF REPORT After winning its first regional title since 1986, the UF women's golf team had national championship aspirations. Those aspirations quickly became depressed. The Gators dug themselves into a hole after the first round and weren't ever able to fully recover, finishing ninth at the NCAA Championships in Albuquerque, N.M. "We had a fantastic year," coach Jill BrilesHinton said. "The team is disappointed, but we had to play really hard just to get to where we finished today. They just couldn't get anything going on that first day and we played 1A. hard the rest of the time through horrible conditions." The Gators shot a final-round 299 to finish with a 72-hole total of 1196 (301-299-297-299) (+44). It was the fifth time the Gators have finished in the top 10 in NCAA play with BrilesHinton at the helm. Weather played a major factor in UF's performance in the tournament, as the Gators had to battle high winds and wait out multiple suspensions of play over the course of the four-day tournament. But it was the poor play in the first round that made it hard for the Gators to regain ground on the leaderboard. "The girls were ready, but I think that they came out a little bit too worked up and too excited," Briles-Hinton said of the first day of the tournament. "They did get settled down, but it just never clicked for them." Fittingly, it was senior Tiffany Chudy who led UF on the green. Chudy shot a 2-under70 on the day, which put her at 27th place. It was a personal best for the senior, as well as the lowest score posted by a Gator. "I am so happy for Tiffany because that was just an amazing way for her to finish Golf her senior year," Briles-Hinton said. The Gators coach also expressed pride in redshirt junior Ornella Jouven, who had her worst performance of the tournament with a 77 on the last day but managed to finish tied for 34th place overall. Freshmen Jessica Yadloczky and Hannah Yun performed well in their first NCAA tournament. Yadloczky recorded an 80 (+8) on the final day of the tournament to land her in a tie for 48th place, while Yun carded a 4-over76 to finish in a tie for 65th place. Redshirt freshman Nicole Schachner carded a 76 (+4) during the final round to tie her best performance of the week and finished tied for 109th. The ninth-place finish at the NCAA tournament capped an impressive year for the Gators. UF won five tournaments this season, including its eighth Southeastem Conference Championship and the first NCAA regional title in school history. The five wins were the most UF has won in a single season since the 1994-95 squad won five as well.

20, ALLIGATOR S TUESDAY, MAY 27, 2008 Briceno to leave one court for another By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteele@alligator.org Nestor Briceno got a head start to the courtroom a little sooner than he would've liked. The law school hopeful was eliminated in the second round of NCAA singles play when his comeback attempt came up short against Pepperdine's Bassam Beidas 3-6, 3-6, 7-5 on Thursday. Beidas would then go on to upset Georgia's No. 4 Travis Hegelson 6-1,6-4. If Briceno had upset Beidas, he would've nailed down an All-American honor, something coach Andy Jackson said he wanted "very badly for him." But instead Briceno, one of just two seniors on the team, will have to settle for finishing fifth all-time in UF singles wins at 105. "Nestor, in my opinion, hasn't gotten the credit for his play of tennis," Jackson said. "He's been overshadowed by LJessel Levine or Greg [Ouellette]. To be top five all-time in wins at Florida speaks to the level that we all knew he had. After coming in at No. 91 last fall, Briceno's ranking -and play -improved throughout his senior year as his win totals continued to climb up the charts. "I wouldn't want to be in the law room with him either because I have a feeling his toughness is going to grow." Andy Jackson UF men's tennis coach "For four years he was one of the guys that you definitely could count on," Jackson said. "If we could get it close and put Nestor in a chance to win it, then we felt good about our chances." And for someone who, according to Jackson, had made tennis his top priority in life up until college, getting any type of degree is an accomplishment -let alone making it into law school.
