Report: $131 million in untapped UF reserves


Faculty say funds could prevent layoffs


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Staff Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

A recent report reveals that UF had al-
most $131 million in unrestricted funds at
the end of the 2007 fiscal year - none of
which will be used to offset a $47 million
budget crunch this July.


The United Faculty of Florida, the state's
higher-education faculty union, commis-
sioned the report, which was first publicized
in a Wednesday article in The Gainesville
Sun. It has incited leaders of UF's faculty
and graduate student unions to question
whether digging into the "rainy-day fund"
could prevent roughly 130 UF faculty and
staff layoffs.


John Biro, president of UF's chapter of the
union, said UF officials have an obligation to
explain why the reserves, which are up to
the discretion of the
U F Board of Trustees,
Administration are not being spent
to prevent layoffs.
"You lay people
off only in a genuine emergency when there
is no alternative," Biro said.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said the


$130.9 million in 2007 reserves were not
tapped because the money is committed to
other projects.
He said $85 million is being used to fund
initiatives such as purchasing computers
every seven years and supporting UF's sus-
tainable building program. UF is required to
keep the remaining $45 million for one-time,
unexpected expenses, such as a hurricane,
he said.

Noah makes deal


After two run-ins with
Gainesville law enforcement over
Memorial Day weekend, former
UF basketball player Joakim Noah
entered a contract Tuesday evening
that will allow his criminal charges
to eventually be dropped.
Police charged Noah early
Sunday morning for an open con-
tainer violation and possession of
less than 20 grams of cannabis. The
misdemeanors carry punishments
of up to one year in jail and/or a
$1,000 fine. Noah was originally
issued a notice to appear in court,
but it was suspended after he en-
tered into a contract with the State
Attorney's Office, said Spencer
Mann, spokesman for the office.
The contract requires Noah to-


pay fines totalling $200. He will
be on probation for six months. If
he does not violate any laws dur-
ing that time, his charges will be
dropped.
In a separate
incident Sunday
evening, Noah
was pulled over
on campus in a
2008 Hummer
for speeding,
Noah said Maj. Brad
Barber of the
University Police Department.
Noah was issued two traffic
citations, one for driving without
wearing a seat belt and another for
driving with a suspended license.

Bear spotted in Hard Rock pool in Orlando
ORLANDO (AP) - A security guard at the Hard Rock
Hotel in Universal Studios called police early Wednesday
morning when he spotted a bear taking a dip in the hotel's
pool.
The guard saw the bear on a security screen.
The bear got out of the pool and began roaming the
property.
Wildlife officials were called to the scene.
Mike Orlando, a wildlife biologist, said black bears are
typically shy animals and that this one should not be a
threat to residents in the area.

Commission approves tax
to fund Newberry policing
County Commissioners
unanimously approved a tax
Tuesday for Newberry residents
that will help fund law enforce-
ment within the city's boundar-
ies.
The tax will provide money
to pay for services provided by
the Alachua County Sheriff's
Office.
Newberry does not have its
own police department, and it
has been receiving services from
the Sheriff's Office for free.
The law enforcement as-
sistance that Newberry has
received has been funded by
tax dollars from other Alachua
County residents who reside in
cities such as Gainesville, High
Springs and Waldo, County
Commissioner Rodney Long
said after the meeting.

UF, city team up to install taxi stations near local bars


By ELIZABETH LEVA
Alligator Writer

Late-night pub crawlers will have more
transportation options to get home this fall
besides drunken driving, bicycle-powered
rickshaws and the Later Gator.
Taxi stations will be installed in two of
Gainesville's nighttime hot spots to provide
bar patrons with late-night safety and con-
venience just in time for the first UF home
football game Aug. 30.


Jeanna Mastrodicasa, UF assistant vice
president of student affairs and a Gainesville
city commissioner, said she hopes the sta-
tions will solve the lack of available taxis in
Gainesville bar districts, thereby helping to
reduce drunken driving.
"We never want people to think driving
home from the bars is more convenient than
finding a cab," Mastrodicasa said. "So we are
putting the cabs right in front of them."
Student Body President Kevin Reilly said
one station would be located in midtown


outside of Balls and the Salty Dog Saloon.
Another hub will be in-
Sstalled downtown near the
Market Street Pub.
-Reilly said the stations
would be active Wednesday
through Saturday between
10 p.m. and 3 a.m.
"Students will be able to
Reilly go to one specific area and
know they will find a cab or
one will be there shortly," he said.


Mastrodicasa said some taxi companies re-
ported that they find it hard to attract potential
clients at late-night stomping grounds because
they don't have a designated place to sit and
wait. In fact, the only designated local taxi
station that currently exists in Gainesville is
at the airport, located in northeast Gainesville,
she added.
"I have only gotten positive feedback from
everyone involved in this plan," Mastrodicasa
said. "It's a win-win situation for bar patrons,
bar owners and taxi companies."


Despite stimulus checks, Fla. consumer confidence falls


* THE INDEX IS AT ITS
LOWEST SINCE 1991.

By JESSICA BRAND
Alligator Contributing Writer

Even though economic stimulus
checks are putting money back in
taxpayers' pockets, the extra cash
has not stopped consumer confi-


dence in Florida from falling to a
near all-time low.
UF's Survey Research Center
in the Bureau of Economic and
Business Research released data
Tuesday that showed the consumer
confidence index dropped to 65
this month - one point lower than
April's index and the lowest it has
been since reaching 64 during the
1991 recession.


The index was 82 in May 2007.
The UF survey is meant to pre-
dict buying patterns and measures
how state residents
State feel about spending
News money. The index
measures consumers'
feelings about the
economy on a scale of zero to 100. In
May, the Internal Revenue Service
began sending economic stimulus


checks of up to $600 to taxpayers
who filed a 2007 tax return and had
at least $3,000 of income.
Chris McCarty, director of the
Survey Research Center, said the
arrival of stimulus checks failed to
improve consumer confidence be-
cause the economy is suffering from
rising gas prices, consumer debt and
unstable housing prices. McCarty
said he initially believed the arrival


of stimulus checks would cause a
temporary spike in consumer con-
fidence because the survey is com-
pleted every month and is sensitive
to changes in the country's social
and economic climate.
"When things like this hap-
pen that people would respond to
emotionally, it usually registers,"
he said, "but we're just not seeing
it this time."

UF RESEARCH

UF team aids Mars craft


By ELIZABETH LEVA
Alligator Writer

A research partnership between scientists
and students from UF and the University of
Central Florida has resulted in innovative
technology that is literally out of this world.
A NASA spacecraft, dubbed the Phoenix,
reached Mars on Sunday equipped with a
device created with the help of a UF team.
The device will allow the lander's camera
to capture accurate photos of the Martian
terrain.
Randy Duran, UF chemistry professor,
said the Phoenix mission was sent to dig into
the Martian surface in search of water, which
would support evidence that there is poten-
tial for life on the planet.
The cameras on board spacecrafts are
usually damaged by the harsh conditions of
Mars and cannot accurately capture neces-
sary images, Duran said.
UF helped improve color-calibration tar-
gets on the Phoenix to ensure the camera's
accuracy so scientists would know where to
make the Phoenix dig, he said.
"Without the color-calibration targets, the
Phoenix mission is essentially blind," Duran
said.


These targets are made of a silicon wafer
with a protective metal casing that repels
dust from the camera's lens and provides
accurate color analysis, Duran said.
NASA began successfully receiving im-
ages from the spacecraft within one hour of
its landing, he said.
Duran and his team from UF and UCF
completed the color-cali-
bration targets for the mis-
sion two years ago.
"It was amazing to
provide UF students with
an opportunity to create
something that could
make history in space,"
Duran Duran said.
It took a year and a half
to build the Phoenix, which departed Earth
in August.
Abhi Lokesh, a UF integrative biology se-
nior, worked on the project during his fresh-
man and sophomore years.
Lokesh said he couldn't believe there
were never more than five students involved
with the project.
"This project was a hidden gem," he said.
"I don't think kids realized how cool the stuff
was that we were doing."


Senator questions Drayton's move


SG, from page 1

and speaking with many influential
people in my life, I have decided to take
on this once in a lifetime experience and
still be capable of fulfilling all the needs
of treasurer position," he wrote.
Medina served on the Senate's Budget
and Appropriations Committee last year.
Drayton said Medina's experience on the
committee and two "intense training ses-
sions" with Drayton earned his trust.
But Sen. Cain Norris said Drayton's
absence will be a problem, and he should
have resigned.
"He won't be able to put his full ef-
fort into the duties of the office," Norris
said. "He is trying to have his cake and
eat it, too."
While Norris said he does not doubt
Medina's qualifications, he believes if
Drayton is going to leave his duties in
Gainesville, he should leave his title here
as well. But Drayton's announcement
only consumed about 15 minutes of a
nearly four-hour Senate meeting.


After three weeks of setbacks and
delays, senators approved all SG agency
positions and Cabinet directors and
secretaries presented by Student Body
President Kevin Reilly.
Some senators pleaded for reconsid-
eration of many nominees, but no ap-
pointments were actually overturned.
Among the
Student disagreements was
Government the approval of
Sen. Zenia Birdie as
Cabinet Family Affairs Secretary, which
constituted a nearly one-hour debate.
Sen. Sam Miorelli said Birdie is ineli-
gible to handle the position because she
does not have her own family.
"It would be similar to appointing
someone who had never been in the
military to be head of veterans affairs,"
Miorelli said.
Birdie defended her qualifications
and said not having a family of her own
will serve as a balance by enabling her to
offer an unbiased student perspective on
issues.

Haile residents discuss rape with law enforcement


By CHRISTOPHER MYERS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Haile Plantation residents met with law
enforcement officials Wednesday evening
to discuss safety questions that arose in
the aftermath of the Haile sexual assault
case.
On May 21, a 36-year-old woman was
attacked and raped by an armed man in
Haile during her early morning jog.
The attacker is still at large, and police
have released a composite sketch in hopes
of locating him.


Officials from the Alachua County
Sheriff's Office spoke during the meet-
ing, which took place in the Kanapaha
Middle School cafeteria. They shared rape
prevention techniques and provided case
updates.
"There's a lot of fear," Sheriff Sadie
Darnell said. "There's a lot of very valid
concerns for safety, and so we want to be
as accessible as possible to answer any of
the questions and allay the concerns."
During the meeting, officials also de-
nounced rumors that the case is receiving
so much attention because it occurred in a


wealthy area.
Lt. Stephen


Suspect


Maynard, spokesman for
the Sheriff's Office, said
the reason the rape case
was unique was that it
occurred in a well-lit area
within view of passing
motorists.
The suspect walked
away from the scene and
got into a car without any
attempt to hide his iden-


tity, Maynard said.
"This has everything to do with the vio-


lent nature of the attack," he said.
Deputies also spoke of the impor-
tance of neighborhood watches and Rape
Aggression Defense classes.
The classes are available, and one could
be scheduled to meet the needs of Haile
residents, Maynard said.
The class teaches self-defense tech-
niques and that just yelling "rape" may
not be enough to get someone to come

Editorial
The boys and girls of summer are hitting their (home run)
strides, and we at the Department of Darts and Laurels
couldn't be more pumped. The Gators softball team has
earned its first-ever Women's College World Series birth, the
upstart Florida Marlins and Tampa Bay Rays are the surpris-
ing leaders of their respective divisions in the big leagues, and
we're keeping our fingers crossed for the Gators baseball team
as it looks to put a hurting on FSU in the Tallahassee Regional
this weekend for the chance to steal their way into the College
World Series.
So grab an ice-cold brew, a ballpark bratwurst and some
Cracker Jacks as we bring you a very special salute-to-
America's-pastime (and softball, too) edition of ...



Darts & Laurels
Leading off, we hurl a high and hard thanks-for-once-
again-disabusing-us-of-the-idea-that-Student-Government-is-
about-anything-less-than-personal-advancement DART to UF
Student Body Treasurer Paul Drayton for shirking the respon-
sibilities of his office for the personal enrichment of a summer
internship at JPMorgan Chase in New York City.
While congratulations to Mr. Drayton are certainly in or-
der for his procurement of such a prestigious internship, his
act of leaving his post without resigning is tantamount to a
slap in the face to the student body. As an elected Student
Government official, Drayton has a duty to his fellow students
to serve with distinction, or failing that, to the best of his abili-
ties. Unfortunately, Drayton's display of hubris is the rule, not
the exception, for what we've come to expect from the people
elected to serve us in SG. It would be nice if the members of SG
would at least pretend their office meant more to them than a
line on their resumes.
Up next, we fire a it's-good-to-see-you-back-in-town-but-
your-illicit-actions-make-us-frown DART to former Gators
Basketball great Joakim Noah. While anyone who has led the
Gators to consecutive basketball National Championships is
more than welcome to return to the heart of The Gator Nation
any time, we're left scratching our heads over the disappointing
events of this past weekend. Noah's return to Gainesville over
the Memorial Day weekend was spoiled by an arrest on charges
of possession of marijuana and violation of the city's open-con-
tainer law. Then, less than 24 hours after his arrest, Noah was
issued two traffic citations for driving with a suspended license
and for failing to wear a seat belt.
Whether he likes it or not, Noah is a role model for young,
aspiring hoops stars, as well as an ambassador for his alma
mater. His behavior is a poor reflection on UF and a stain on his
stellar athletic contributions to the Orange and Blue. Here's to
hoping Noah will get his act together and cease to be the prover-
bial (Chicago) Bull in a China shop.
Next, a we-always-knew-there-was-of-an-action-hero-in-
you LAUREL goes to Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles Bronson (not to be confused
with the silver screen tough guy of the same name, best known
for his role in the "Death Wish" film series) for delivering a clar-
ion call to the airheads in Washington on the need to look into
the outrageous fuel prices facing Floridians - as well as the rest
of the country - at the pump. Bronson implored Congress and
President Bush to open an investigation into the possibility of
price gouging. "We're being taken for a ride, and the evidence
is everywhere, from the escalating prices we pay to fill up our
vehicles with gasoline to the purchase of virtually all consumer
goods," said Bronson.
Thanks for going to bat for Floridians while our national
leaders have failed us so breathtakingly on this important eco-
nomic issue.
Batting cleanup, we present a here's-looking-at-you-kid(s)
LAUREL to the UF softball team for reaching its first Women's
College World Series. We extend a hearty congratulations to
Coach Tim Walton and his squad for this momentous acheive-
ment. We couldn't be prouder of our Lady Gators' display of
excellence this season, and we wish them luck as they battle
for the National Championship. It sure is great to be a Florida
Gator!

Guest column

Health care deserves intelligent debate


Despite the fact there are about 47 million Americans
without health insurance, half of all bankruptcies in
the U.S. are the result of medical bills, we currently
spend 16 percent of our gross domestic product on health
care and health care is consistently a top concern among vot-
ers, I have yet to see an intelligent debate on health care in
the mainstream media or among our esteemed presidential
candidates. A key reason for this is the perpetuation of sev-
eral myths that make it taboo to wander outside the same
hackneyed health care reforms that have been failing for the
past 40 years.
The first myth would be the U.S. has the best health care
in the world. Don't get me wrong, we certainly have some
of the finest doctors and facilities, but they don't do us any
good if the vast majority of people can't use them. It's like
having a Maserati with no keys.
Perhaps the most telling gauge of our medical prowess
comes from a study published earlier this year that ranked
the U.S. at No. 19 out of 19 industrialized countries for the
treatment of amenable diseases like cancer, heart disease and
complications from surgery. Who came in at No. 1? France,
with their "socialist nightmare" of a health care system.
Another barrier to intelligent conversation on this im-
portant issue is the contention that a national health care
program would cost too much.
A 2005 study from the National Coalition on Health
Care dispelled this myth. The study looked at four different
scenarios of health reform, including plans similar to those
of the current presidential candidates as well as a publicly
financed national health insurance program. After 10 years,
the other plans would save about $350 billion each. That's
after a 5-year period of increased costs. By comparison, the
public plan would save over $1 trillion in 10 years, with no
period of increased costs.
But anytime someone mentions national health insur-
ance, images of long waiting lines and grandmas dying in
the streets due to lack of access are instantly conjured up.


The reality is, however, that even
in Canada - the most underfunded
country with universal health care
- less than 1 percent are on a wait-
ing list, and only 10 percent of those
on a waiting list wait for more than
Brandon Sack four months.
ietters@alligator.org Then why do so many Canadians
letesaligtrr come over here to get health care?
Well, they don't. A 2002 study
showed that 0.11 percent of Canadians came to the U.S. for
health care. In 2003 though, Americans spent $695 million on
prescription drugs from the land of maple and hockey.
Last but not least, there's the notion that for-profit free-
market models of health insurance encourage efficiency and
provide the best possible coverage.
The best argument against this is history. From 1929 to
1965, the health care market was totally unregulated and it
remains hollowly regulated today. In 1965, Medicare was
created because - surprise - instead of pushing for more
efficiency and greater standards of care, insurance compa-
nies simply chased profits by excluding the sick, poor and
elderly.
Today, Medicare and Medicaid operate with administra-
tive costs of around 3 percent, while private industry spends
16 to 26 percent of its money on non-medical costs like mar-
keting, CEO salaries and shareholder dividends - so much
for efficiency
Are there problems with publicly funded government-
run health care? Yes. But we can overcome them by learn-
ing from the mistakes and successes of our neighbors in the
world community.
We ought to have a health care system that addresses the
needs of every American, especially our grandmas.

The Music Man


Local's music Web site a staple in Gainesville


SHAW PATTON *
AVENUE WRITER
His birth name is Shawn Dalton,
but even his mother affectionately
calls him "Glyph."
Dalton, 33, is the Internet per-
sonality known as "Glypher" who
created GainesvilleBands.com.
Glypher graduated from UF in
1998 and since then has managed
to "land a couple of jobs doing
computer-geek type stuff." He has
been doing Web development and


database design for about five years
at the U.S. Geological Survey.
But Glypher is akin to a second-
tier celebrity in Gainesville due to
his pet project.
"I don't know how much weight
my name carries," Glypher said. "I
don't really think of myself as a fa-
mous or well-known person. I run a
stupid little Web site."
GainesvilleBands.com went
online Sept. 9, 2002. It was created
years before MySpace or Facebook
standardized the concept of social

networking.
"Now its passe. Everybody's
doing it," he said. "When I started,
nobody was doing that."
The Web site is labeled as the


"source for the local music in
Gainesville, FL." Many use it for its
"Upcoming Shows" page, which in-
cludes all major Gainesville venues
and lists ticket prices, show times,
bands playing and even the fliers
associated with each show.
There are approximately 5,000
registered accounts on the Web
site. In its first month online,
GainesvilleBands.com received
2,500 hits but now receives a lot
more, Glypher said.
Part of the reason a Web site like
Glypher's can be so successful is be-
cause of the deeply ingrained music
culture in Gainesville. The town is


rich in musical history and in its
pure volume of shows every week.
"No matter what genres you
want to find, there's somebody in
Gainesville doing it," Glypher said.
"There's also somebody doing it
poorly."
GainesvilleBands.com also facili-
tates community discussion with its
categorized forums.
The "Classifieds" page on the
Web site is like a Craigslist for
Gainesville musicians, although

'Sex and the City' scores in big screen debut


Any fan of the show will tell you
that one of the most anticipated
films of the year is the "Sex and the
City" movie. Set three years after the
series' end, this flick had a lot to live
up to.
Like any movie based on a TV
show, the film already has a lot to
overcome. It's hard not to feel like
you're watching a very long - two
and a half hours, to be exact - epi-
sode of the show with an entire sea-
son's worth of plotlines crammed


into it. That's not an exaggeration:
They celebrate three holidays in the
movie, four if you count Fashion
Week. But they pull it off, and the
movie didn't feel as long as it was.
We reunite with our girls to find
that Charlotte and her husband have
adopted a Chinese girl, Miranda is
with Steve and their son in Brooklyn,
Samantha moved to Hollywood
with her movie-star lover, and
Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker)' and
Big have been living happily ever


after since we found out his name
was John. Of course, the happiness
is short-lived,
and soon we
see that the girls
face big hurdles
in their relation-
ships. Samantha
is worried she
might not be able
Parker to stay faithful
when she realizes
her whole life now revolves around
a single man, and when Carrie and


Big decide to get married, he suffers
from a severe case of cold feet after
their small wedding starts to spiral
out of control.
The film is surprisingly well-
written and also well-acted.
Though, like any movie, there are
a few things that make you raise
an eyebrow. Doesn't Charlotte's
daughter have a baby sitter? And
why does Samantha even live in
L.A. when she spends all her time
in New York? But there's so much
going on that you let all the little


things slide.
Along the way, the drama is
mediated by big laughs and lots of
tears, all culminating with Big and
Carrie's wedding. Do they or don't
they? You'll have to find out for
yourself.
In the end, it can only be de-
scribed as the most epic chick flick
of all time. With enough twists and
turns to make anyone's head spin,
the movie takes us into the lives of
our four favorite New Yorkers for
one last Cosmo.

F First stop: relationships


W Relationships are as common as double-headed
love bugs in March. You've established a relationship
with everyone you've ever met - from your profes-
sors and peers to the Chick-Fil-A guy who knows
your order before you even reach the register.
In order to progress, understand and enjoy sex,
you will first need to understand relationships. Sex
without a relationship is like sex without a condom.
It feels great, but it can lead to trouble. Here's how to
protect yourself.
* The first type of relationship is friendship, which
occurs when there is understanding, trust and respect
without sex. If you choose to take your relationship to
the ne\t level. it can be nskX. Whether the se. is good
or bad. it can end with a possible-yet-unrealisbc hap-
pdly ever after or a tornbl\ awkward situation. Nour
fnends should be the people %who you're shanng
\our stone,- with, not your bed


The second type is known
by many names: friends with
benefits, bed buddies, eight to
eights, etc. Don't take these
pseudo-relationships too seri-
ously because problems occur
when emotions run outside of the sack. If you get too
attached you can wind up with hurt feelings. So take
it for what it's worth and have fun.
The final type of relationship is based on love.
Love is like a second job: It requires lots of time, en-
ergy and effort. Love is when you can imagine your
current crush in 50 years with gray hair and sagging
bod v parts, and they're still attractive in your eyes.
It you're willing to put in the work, you'll have
something wonderful. You'll have what most people
are looking for.

Site offers several services


GLYP , from page 7

many things other than in-
struments are sold there. The
"Create-A-Band" forum is like
personal ads for those wishing
to join or start up a band.
"People have said to me,
'Oh, we found our drummer'
or 'We found our guitar player
on your site,' and that is fine,"
Glypher said.
He tries to keep the Web site
a respectful online community.
"The thing is, this isn't like
the real interweb with total
anonymity," he said. "As big
as people think Gainesville is
... someone is going to take of-


fense in real life."
Fights have broken out in the
past over what was written on
forums, he said.
And while other similar
Web sites were around before
GainesvilleBands.com, none
stood the test of time. Even in
Florida, the site is unique in its
community involvement and
practical use. Searches for Web
sites in Tampa, Orlando and
Tallahassee show only skeletons
of a cohesive online, local music
community.
There is a lot resting on
Glypher's shoulders, but in an
optimistic outlook, it is the com-
munity that really makes such a
Web site possible.

Veterans not surprised by Gators' postseason bid


* UF OPENS PLAY FRIDAY
AGAINST TULANE.

By SHANNON McCARTHY
Alligator Staff Writer
smccarthy@alligator.org

The last time the Gators were
here, things were different, but
the same.
The 2005 team that stormed
all the way to the championship
series in the College World Series
wasn't expected to make it that
far. That squad was picked to
finish third in the Southeastern
Conference's East division.
Instead, all they did was win
the regular-season SEC title and
sweep their way to Omaha,
Neb., college baseball's Promised
Land.
This year, with a new coach-
ing staff in place and only three
players remaining from that CWS
team, the Gators were picked to
finish fifth in the SEC East and
11th overall in the conference.
Instead, the young team fin-
ished third overall in arguably
the nation's toughest conference.
But ask these Gators if they


think they've exceeded expecta-
tions, and the answer is a re-
sounding no.
"Not in our eyes," said senior
designated hitter Bryson Barber,
one holdout from that '05 team.
"When we saw our collection of
players at the beginning of the
year, we knew we had a good
shot of getting to a regional. From
the outside look-
^ ying in, maybe
you didn't see it,
but everybody
Baseball here expected
us to."
Stephen Locke, a freshman
midweek starter then and the
scheduled game one starter now,
agreed.
"Even though a lot of people
didn't expect us to be there, I
think there's a pretty good group
of us that expected to be in the
mix toward the end of the year,"
he said. "We knew we were a ca-
pable team."
It is a team just as capable as
the 2005 Gators, but perhaps in
different ways.

the Gators will start postseason play this weekend in Tallahassee against Tulane.


WCWS a sign of things to come


The funny thing is, you probably
won't think the Gators making the
Women's College World Series is a
big deal a couple of years from now.
Tim Walton isn't going to all of a sud-
den turn his tucked in shirt, fairly clean-
shaven look into a disheveled mess.
He isn't going to have his players stop
dressing up for road games or cleaning up
the softball stadium when he finds one
- yes, just one - cup on the ground out-
side the team's locker room.
"This isn't a one-time thing," senior
Mary Ratliff said. "This is going to be a
Yearly event. It's going to be a realistic
goal every year from now on."
Just going into last season the softball
program was giddy when they'd make a
regional game. Heck, maybe even win one
while there. Then they got to the decisive
game in Super Regional play. Now they've
won Super Regionals with a team that has
one senior and nine freshmen.


Let's put it this
way: Tim Walton
n*� cares about his
players and is sen-
sitive to what they
go through - you
Brian Steele have to be that way
Steele-ing Bases to a certain degree
bsteele@aliigator.org with collegiate fe-
male athletes. But
by no means is he easy on them.
"This place will eat you up and spit you
out," he said.
In other words, don't come here un-
less you want to challenge yourself. That
means you don't get the lackadaisical
students - like me sometimes - who just
do enough in the classroom to get by. You
don't get players who come to practice
exactly on time and leave as soon as it's
over. You don't get people who think it's
a good idea to carry an open container of

UF BASEBALL

Locke to face Tulane-


By SHANNON McCARTHY
Alligator Staff Writer
smccarthy@alligator.org

Stephen Locke does not know what
the future holds for him just yet, but he
does know his immediate future now in-
volves starting the first game of regional
action.
While UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan
originally named junior Patrick Keating
(8-1, 3.47 ERA) as his game one starter
and tabbed Locke (5-2, 3.07 ERA) as his
starter for game two, the rotation has been
flip-flopped after additional musing.
"Coach O'Sullivan called me after
we'd all gotten home (Monday) and told
me that he decided to switch it up," Locke
said. "He just looked at the matchups.
Tulane is a big base-stealing team a lot
like us. He figured with me being left-
handed it would slow the running game
down a little bit."
With Conference USA Pitcher of
the Year Shooter Hunt on the mound
opposite Locke, Friday's matchup in
Tallahassee figures to be a low-scoring af-


fair, so one stolen base, one bunt, one run
could be the difference. But O'Sullivan
was more concerned with leaving his
lefty on the shelf for too long.
"The biggest thing is it was kind of
sitting in our minds that we went up to
Birmingham and Stephen never touched
the mound, and he's arguably our hottest
pitcher as of late."
"The biggest thing is it was
kind of sitting in our minds that
we went up to Birmingham and
Stephen never touched the

Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach

Just two years removed from Tommy
John surgery, the redshirt junior has im-
proved dramatically as the season has
progressed. In his last four starts, Locke
has thrown 29 innings, including two
complete games, and notched three wins

Upperclassmen stress one-game-at-a-time focus


BASE, from page 19

'Back in 2005, we were a long ball
team, and now we steal bases," Barber
said. "Different players, different sys-
tem...everything's different."
So as UF prepares to face Tulane, the
three remaining veterans are stressing
the lesson they learned three years ago to
their teammates.
It's a tired baseball cliche, but one that
especially holds true this time of year.
"We're telling these guys you just
have to take it one game at a time,"
Barber said. "If we do that and play our
game, we have a good shot of looking up
and being in Omaha."
Senior first baseman Brandon
McArthur, the starting third baseman on
that CWS team, pointed to the path those

alcohol around downtown
Gainesville while having a
marijuana cigarette in your
pocket. Stacey Nelson doesn't
look like that big of a hippie,
after all.
Walton's recruiting stu-
dent athletes who smash the
ball and smash test curves,
pitchers who throw a hard
rise ball and rise in society.
When Kim Waleszonia was
debating on whether to come


Gators took to Omaha as an example.
"In 2005 when we had Stetson, they
played with us every game that year,"
McArthur said. "It wasn't like it was a
cakewalk to move on. Luckily we were
able to pull that one out, and the next
night we faced home-
town Andrew Miller [of
North Carolina]."
Miller is with the
Florida Marlins now,
and was the Tar Heels
ace back then. The
Gators will face a simi-
McArthur lar task when they go
up against Tulane's Shooter Hunt.
Just as they wouldn't look past Stetson
to facing Miller then, they won't look
ahead to potentially playing Florida State
until after they've faced Hunt and the
Green Wave.
"You've got to take it game by game,"


back this semester after her
father was dealing with can-
cer, Walton didn't promise
Lester Waleszonia his daugh-
ter would win another All-
American honor. He promised
him he'd make her graduate.
Urban Meyer and Billy
Donovan can't make these
promises with the same suc-
cess.
Most of their big-time re-
cruits think they'll be running
past NFL linebackers and have
Gatorade begging them to say,
"Is it in you?" on national TV.
But when your sport lacks


the big bucks of professional
leagues, and people haven't
praised you since your first
layup or hit, it becomes easier
to sell parents and students on
a good life in front of a good
program.
I'm far from certain that
UF will win the world series
this year.
They were just heavily
tested against a Pac-10 team,
and the SEC simply doesn't
have the guns right now that
the Pac-10 and Big 12 do. But
I am certain that the Gators
will, someday sooner rather


McArthur said. "You can't look ahead
and you can't look behind you. You've
got to play for that moment because in
the long run, you can look back and re-
gret some of the things that you did while
thinking about the future."
For Barber and McArthur, and perhaps
Locke, the future does not hold more col-
lege baseball. The three veterans were
excited to be back in the postseason one
final time, but they aren't satisfied yet.
"The honor of getting into the post-
season is pretty meaningful," McArthur
said, "just knowing that all of the hard
work you've done and the games you
played throughout the year have some-
what paid off.
"But our job isn't over. We've got to
keep working and going at things."
He paused, then added with a smile:
"Hopefully we can keep playing for an-
other month."


than later, have a program
that will make the UCLAs
and Californias blush. Walton
wouldn't have eight girls from
California - the hotbed for
softball - on his roster if he
wasn't building an impressive
program.
The Gators will probably
come home empty handed
this year. But Jeremy Foley
better start making room
in his trophy case, because
softball may very well end
up being the best sports team
year in and year out on this
campus.

while only allowing eight earned runs
over that span.
The lone lefty in UF's rotation could
be playing in his last college postseason.
While Locke has one more year of eligibil-
ity, he has already graduated with a bach-
elor's degree in sport management.
"I kind of want to see what's out there
for me," Locke said. "If nothing really
works out, then I still have the option of
coming back."
Senior first baseman Brandon
McArthur has been there throughout
Locke's career, and he has seen the process
and the progress.
"Sully made a point to all of the pitch-
ing staff to let them know at the beginning
of the year that (Locke) wasn't supposed
to be one of the weekend starters,"
McArthur said. "But he never quit work-
ing, and eventually he worked his way
back into the rotation."
Locke is the only UF pitcher with
postseason experience. As a freshman, he
started the first game of the championship
series against Texas in 2005.
He is now looking forward to getting
another shot at postseason glory.
"With this possibly being my last year,
I'm going to take it all in a little more and
try to enjoy it," Locke said.

Waleszonia deals with loss


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

On a Friday in February her ca-
reer started.
The proud parents, Cathy and
Lester Waleszonia, traveled to Houston
where they would watch their daugh-
ter play.
Since she was little, Lester was her
coach.
Now, he is her biggest fan.
As a freshman, Kim started all five
games in the tournament as UF stum-
bled out to a 2-3 record.
From the stands, Lester takes note of
a white feather that had nestled into the
netting behind the backstop.
"Oh, Chris is here, Cathy," he says.
"He's watching over us."
Even though he passed away in a
car accident four years earlier at the age
of 16, Chris Waleszonia was watching
his little sister play too.
Two years later, Kim, never one for
jewelry, wears a feather around her
neck in memory of lost loved ones. She
is now the most motivational player on
a team that has only lost three games all
season and is headed to the Women's
College World Series for the first time
in school history.

Diagnosis
In the fall of 2007, Kim left her home
in Fontana, Calif., and hopped on a
plane to Gainesville to attend classes.
She left the same time and same
way she had every year, without a hint
of just how different this time would
___ be. ...
Within a week of her leaving, Cathy
noticed something different about her
husband.


Standing in the kitchen, she thought
she noticed a yellow hue in Lester's
eyes.
Weary at first, he agreed to get it
checked out because of the family's his-
tory with cancer.
He had a 7 a.m. appointment for his
shoulder, which was sore from all the
batting practice he threw to the team of
his youngest son, Scotty.
Two hours later, he was being
checked out for the jaundice that had
developed in his eye.
On Aug. 29, he was diagnosed with
inoperable cancer and given less than a
year to live.
"We were all crying, everybody
was crying," Cathy said of the ensuing
phone call to Kim.
Immediately, the middle child got
back on a plane and flew back out to
California to be with her father.
She had a lot of thinking ahead of
her.'
Should she stay home and spend
what little time she might have left
with her father? Or continue her edu-
cation and be with the girls that had
become a second family to her?
"I remember her walking up and
down the sidewalk talking to friends,
and family, and coaches about what to
do," Cathy said. "It was 100 percent her
decision. We talked to her about it, and
we decided that whatever she decided
to do we would say, 'That's a great
decision."'
After two days of wrestling with
,the situation, Kim walked into the
living room and told her parents she
would not be attending school for the
fall semester.
"We were really proud of her decid-
ing to come home because that's some-
thing you can't get back," Cathy said.

Kim Waleszonia steals home base in the 3rd inning of the Gators' 4-2 win against California in the NCAA Super Regional Championship Saturday af-
ternoon. Below: Kim Waleszonia kneels down on second base in the 3rd inning of the Gators' 4-2 win against California in the NCAA Super Regional
Championship. Waleszonia made a last-mintue decision to come back to UF during the spring semester after her father was diagnosed wtih Cancer.
Making Memories
The goal was simple for the
Waleszonia family - never leave
Lester alone.
It wasn't that Cathy was concerned
that he wouldn't be OK by himself.
rather, she wanted to create memories
with her family d unring her husband's
final days.
"You start to hope he can just make 4
it a little bit longer." she said. "I hope
he can make it to Thanksgiving. our an-
niversary is in December I hope he can I
make it to that Maybe he can make it
to Christmas."
With each passing day, they made


They made sure they were with
him.
Lester had to be in the hospitall five
to seven days at a time Cathy would
take the day shift., and Kim would take
over at night.
"She totally focused on him," Cath\
said. "During the daytime. she would
go to the gym, do workouts. try her
best to keep in shape tor sottball. '
It was a tough balancing act for
Kim, who kept in mind that she would
be playing softball again someday.
It was a prospect that became much
more real after a phone call from a
friend.
It was Halloween, and UF ace
Stacey Nelson called her to say the
team had a meeting on what they were
going to have to do without their little
5-foot-4 dynamo.
"That's when I started to think I
could come back," she said.
December presented another
gut-wrenching decision, one that she
couldn't make from California.
She wanted to surprise her team-
mates with a trip to Gainesville.
More importantly, she wanted to see
if she could handle being away from
her father. She attended a Christmas
party and took team pictures, with her
decision all but made.
"We encouraged her to go," Cathy
said. "She had been at her dad's side
and we said, 'Kim, you need to go and
give it a try."'
The first Sunday in January, the day
before classes started, Kim arrived in
Gainesville for the spring semester.
That Tuesday she got the call from her
mother. This time the phone rang with
an echo of what was about to happen.
Lester's condition had worsened,
and they didn't think he was going to
make it to Friday, when she was sup-
pose to head back to California.
Cathy asked Kim to tell. her father
it was OK for him to go, and for the
last time, she spoke to her dad on the
phone. He wasn't well enough to re-
spond, but he understood the message


just the same.
He passed away a few hours later.

Making History
Her second return to campus was
tougher to make, but the first game
was less than a month away, and the
team needed one of its leaders.
"She felt like she had to earn her role
back," senior Mary Ratliff said. "But it
was hers the whole time."
She recorded the first at-bat by a
Gator in 2008, penciled in at the leadoff
spot where she would start all 70 games
wearing the Orange and Blue.
Kim was coming off a sophomore
season in which she earned All-
Southeastern Conference first-team
honors and became UF's first ever All-
American position player.
With the leader of their lineup back
in uniform and between the lines, the
team soared to unprecedented heights.
The Gators finished the season with
a No. 1 ranking and the No. 1 overall
seed in the NCAA Tournament.
Kim is hitting .368, has stolen 22 bas-
es and has scored 61 runs - a school
record - coming into the WCWS.
As a result of their tremendous
season, the Gators were rewarded with
home-field advantage in Regional and
Super Regional play.
Cathy sat behind home plate for
every last pitch.
"I was never so happy to be any-


place in my life," she said.
. She was there for the Regional,
when her daughter lifted UF to a 10-0
defeat of Central Florida in the champi-
onship game.
"I'm not sure how much of it I saw, I
was jumping up and down so much."
The team manager handed her
the two home run balls Kim hit in
that game as a way to remember her
daughter's amazing performance.
Friends and family joined Cathy in
Gainesville to watch Kim play in the
Super Regional against Cal.
Two of her cousins, Jeff and Jenny,
came to watch her play. So did their
mom, Mary, and her husband, Lynn.
Jeff's girlfriend, Jane, was there.
Together they held up signs and wore
No. 5 shirts with "Waleszonia" across
their backs.
And when the Gators achieved their
goal of earning a trip to Oklahoma City
to play in the WCWS, they were all
there to celebrate.
. "There were plenty of emotions,"
Cathy said. "We were jumping up and
down screaming."

Remembering
Inside the Waleszonia's home in
Fontana, a poster hangs in the dining
room.
"Orange and Blue. Thinking of You.
Get well soon."
The team made it for Lester while he


Sarah Hsu / Alligator Statt
was sick during the fall semester, each
one of them signed it.
"It meant a lot to Lester," Cathy
,said.
"He couldn't believe that they
would do that for him."
While Kim has enjoyed tremendous
success on the field, it's a promise coach
Tim Walton made to her father that he
puts above everything else.
"Talking to her dad when he first
was diagnosed with cancer, I made
a promise to him that hler daughter
would graduate from the University of
Florida," he said. "Getting that degree
is No. 1, and what she does on the field
is a bonus."
In Oklahoma City, she'll have the.
chance to deliver the biggest bonus the
program and the conference has ever
seen. The first national championship
ever won by an SEC school.
Though she just arrived back home
on Tuesday, Cathy will be there for
the Gators' first game on Thursday,
bringing friends and family along for
the ride.
"There are a lot of people in Kim's
comer," she said. "I can't tell you how
many people will be watching."
All of them will support No. 5 as she
takes center field with a tiny, white gold
feather glistening around her neck.
The Waleszonias, without a doubt,
know two people who are watching.
The tiny, white gold feather says so.


Dream becomes reality as No. 1 Gators get set for first ever WCWS


* UF HAS IMPROVED EACH YEAR IN
TIM WALTON'S THREE SEASONS.

By MIKE DIFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

When Tim Walton came to UF three
years ago all he had was a dream.
Now that dream has turned into a reality.
As the No. 1 Gators prepare for their first
game of the Women's College World Series
against Louisiana-Lafayette today, they can't
help but look back on the long road that they
traveled to get to this point.
9 "Three years ago, we sold these kids on


a dream, to do things the right way and not
cut comers," Walton said. "I thought that we
had a program with the resources that was
capable of competing with the best teams in
the country."
He has done just that.
In three years, he has taken UF from an
average Southeastern Conference team to the
WCWS and the favorite to win the national
title.
In his first year, he took the Gators to re-
gional play.
In his second, all the way to a Super
Regional championship game where UF
would fall to higher-seeded Texas A&M.
But now in his third year, Walton has the
Gators where he always thought they could


be - in Oklahoma City for the WCWS.
"We're at the University of Florida where
championships are expected," Walton said.
"You come here to win a championship."
UF has never been to
the WCWS before, and no
school from the SEC has
.. ever won a national title.
But after storming
through the Regional and
Super Regional portion of
the tournament, the Gators
Walton look poised to make his-
tory.
For each Gator, the trip to the Oklahoma
City n means something different.
Frahcesca Enea is happy to be able to fol-


low in her big sisters footsteps and make it to
the Big Dance.
Christina Enea played for Oklahoma from
2002-2005 and played in three WCWS.
"We have this little joke. She always says,
'Oh you're doing so good,' and I always say,
'No, stop telling me that. You're jinxing me,'"
Francesca said. "But every time she does that
it feels really good. I know she's proud of
me."
Ace pitcher Stacey Nelson is proud to see
how far her team has come in such a short
period of time.
"It means a lot," Nelson said about playing
in the World Series.
"My freshman year, we weren't even able
to get out of regionals, so to watch us grow


and take the next step each year, it's very
special."
For Mary Ratliff, the team's lone senior,
the journey has been an especially memorable
one. With such a young team, she's said that
she's "just been along for the ride." So far
that's been one amazing trip.
"I've never had chills like I did during
the last out of the (regional championship)
game with the crowd standing and cheering,"
Ratliff said. "It was really kind of an unreal
feeling."
Ratliff is sure that this won't be the last
time you see the Gators on the big stage.
. "There isn't a doubt in my mind that this
program can reacji this point every ,year,"
Ratliff said.

Horschel


leads UF


on Day 1

STAFF REPORT

It shouldn't come as any surprise
that when the No. 6 UF men's golf
team opened play on Wednesday,
it was Billy Horschel who stole the
show.
As the Gators continue their quest
for an NCAA Championship, the two-
time All-American carried over his
clutch regional performance to pace
UF on the. tournament's opening day.
"Billy is one of the best players in
the country and may not have had as
good of a year as he would like," UF
coach Buddy Alexander said, "but
he stepped up at regionals when we
needed him.
"He stepped up
today because that is
what big-time play-
ers do and it's what
Golf All-Americans do, so
I am not surprised. I
wouldn't be surprised
to see him play solid all week long."
Horschel carded an even-par 72
on the day, which placed him in a
tie for fourth. He had three birdies
on the front nine, entering the turn
at one-under. After birdying .the 10th
hole and making bogeys on 11 and
12, Horschel made par on the last six
holes of the course.
The Gators finished 14 strokes over
par with a 302 as a team, which landed
them in a tie for sixth place after the
opening round.
"The course we are playing is
tough," Alexander said. "It has a lot
of rough. This is going to be a long
race, but this team is confident in their
ability."
The first Gator to tee off
Wednesday afternoon, sophomore
Tyson Alexander, recovered well after
a double bogey on the second hole.
Alexander finished the round with
11 pars and two birdies, which places
him in a tie for 40th place on the lead-
erboard with a three-over 75.
Senior Manuel Villegas shot a four-
over 76 and is tied for 23rd. Villegas
rebounded from +3 on the front nine
and helped the Gators climb in the
standings with three birdies in his last
five holes.
Junior Will Strickler contributed
with a seven-over 79 performance
including two birdies to finish in a tie
for 87th place heading into the second
day of competition.
Senior. Tyler Brown began the
round strong, making birdies on his
.I first two holes, but struggled a bit
on the back nine. Brown bogeyed 15
and 16 and made double bogeys on
the final two holes to finish in a tie
for 126th place with an 11-over 83.
UF will be paired with Oklahoma
State and Clemson once again and
will tee off at 7:20 a.m. today.

THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2008 Report: $131 million in untapped UF reserves Faculty say funds could prevent layoffs By KATIE SANDERS Alligator Staff Writer ksanders@alligator.org A recent report reveals that UF had almost $131 million in unrestricted funds at the end of the 2007 fiscal year -none of which will be used to offset a $47 million budget crunch this July. The United Faculty of Florida, the state's higher-education faculty union, commissioned the report, which was first publicized in a Wednesday article in The Gainesville Sun. It has incited leaders of UF's faculty and graduate student unions to question whether digging into the "rainy-day fund" could prevent roughly 130 UF faculty and staff layoffs. John Biro, president of UF's chapter of the union, said UF officials have an-obligation to explain why the reserves, which are up to the discretion of the U F Board of Trustees, UF -' rt. ~ are not being spent to prevent layoffs. "You lay people off only in a genuine emergency when there is no alternative," Biro said. Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said the $130.9 million in 2007 reserves were not tapped because the money is committed to other projects. He said $85 million is being used to fund initiatives such as purchasing computers every seven years and supporting UF's sustainable building program. UF is required to keep the remaining $45 million for one-time, unexpected expenses, such as a hurricane, he said.

The misdemeanors carry punishments of up to one year in jail and/or a $1,000 fine. Noah was originally issued a notice to appear in court, but it was suspended after he entered into a contract with the State Attorney's Office, said Spencer Mann, spokesman for the office. The contract requires Noah to, pay fines totalling $200. He will be on probation for six months. If he does not violate any laws during that time, his charges will be dropped. In a separate incident Sunday evening, Noah was pulled over on campus in a 2008 Hummer for speeding, Neat said Maj. Brad Barber of the University Police Department.

THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2008 3 ALLIGATOR, 3 LOCAL UF, city team up to install taxi stations near local bars By ELIZABETH LEVA Alligator Writer Late-night pub crawlers will have more transportation options to get home this fall besides drunken driving, bicycle-powered rickshaws and the Later Gator. Taxi stations will be installed in two of Gainesville's nighttime hot spots to provide bar patrons with late-night safety and convenience just in time for the first UF home football game Aug. 30. Jeanna Mastrodicasa, UF assistant vice president of student affairs and a Gainesville city commissioner, said she hopes the stations will solve the lack of available taxis in Gainesville bar districts, thereby helping to reduce drunken driving. "We never want people to think driving home from the bars is more convenient than finding a cab," Mastrodicasa said. "So we are putting the cabs right in front of them." Student Body President Kevin Reilly said one station would be located in midtown outside of Balls and the Salty Dog Saloon. Another hub will be installed downtown near the Market Street Pub. Reilly said the stations would be active Wednesday through Saturday between 10 p.m. and 3 a.m. "Students will be able to go to one specific area and know they will find a cab or one will be there shortly," he said. Mastrodicasa said some taxi companies reported that they find it hard to attract potential clients at late-night stomping grounds because they don't have a designated place to sit and wait. In fact, the only designated local taxi station that currently exists in Gainesville is at the airport, located in northeast Gainesville, she added. "I have only gotten positive feedback from everyone involved in this plan," Mastrodicasa said. "It's a win-win situation for bar patrons, bar owners and taxi companies." Despite stimulus checks, Fla. consumer confidence falls 0 THE INDEX IS AT ITS LOWEST SINCE 1991. By JESSICA BRANDI Alligator Contributing Writer Even though economic stimulus checks are putting money back in taxpayers' pockets, the extra cash has not stopped consumer confidence in Florida from falling to a near all-time low. UF's Survey Research Center in the Bureau of Economic and Business Research released data Tuesday that showed the consumer confidence index dropped to 65 this month -one point lower than April's index and the lowest it has been since reaching 64 during the 1991 recession. The index was 82 in May 2007. The UF survey is meant to predict buying patterns and measures how state residents State feel about spending News money. The index measures consumers' feelings about the economy on a scale of zero to 100. In May, the Internal Revenue Service began sending economic stimulus checks of up to $600 to taxpayers who filed a 2007 tax return and had at least $3,000 of income. Chris McCarty, director of the Survey Research Center, said the arrival of stimulus checks failed to improve consumer confidence because the economy is suffering from rising gas prices, consumer debt and unstable housing prices. McCarty said he initially believed the arrival of stimulus checks would cause a temporary spike in consumer confidence because the survey is completed-every month and is sensitive to changes in the country's social and economic climate. "When things like this happen that people would respond to emotionally, it usually registers," he said, "but we're just not seeing it this time."

4, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2008 UF RESEARCH UF team aids Mars craft By ELIZABETH LEVA Alligator Writer A research partnership between scientists and students from UF and the University of Central Florida has resulted in innovative technology that is literally out of this world. A NASA spacecraft, dubbed the Phoenix, reached Mars on Sunday equipped with a device created with the help of a UF team. The device will allow the lander's camera to capture accurate photos of the Martian terrain. Randy Duran, UF chemistry professor, said the Phoenix mission was sent to dig into the Martian surface in search of water, which would support evidence that there is potential for life on the planet. The cameras on board spacecrafts are usually damaged by the harsh conditions of Mars and cannot accurately capture necessary images, Duran said. UF helped improve color-calibration targets on the Phoenix to ensure the camera's accuracy so scientists would know where to make the Phoenix dig, he said. "Without the color-calibration targets, the Phoenix mission is essentially blind," Duran said. These targets are made of a silicon wafer with a protective metal casing that repels dust from the camera's lens and provides accurate color analysis, Duran said. NASA began successfully receiving images from the spacecraft within one hour of its landing, he said. Duran and his team from UF and UCF completed the color-calibration targets for the mission two years ago. "It was amazing to provide UF students with an opportunity to create something that could make history in space," Duran Duran said. It took a year and a half to build the Phoenix, which departed Earth in August. Abhi Lokesh, a UF integrative biology senior, worked on the project during his freshman and sophomore years. Lokesh said he couldn't believe there were never more than five students involved with the project. "This project was a hidden gem," he said. "I don't think kids realized how cool the stuff was that we were doing." Senator questions Drayton's move S G, from page 1 and speaking with many influential people in my life, I have decided to take on this once in a lifetime experience and still be capable of fulfilling all the needs of treasurer position," he wrote. Medina served on the Senate's Budget and Appropriations Committee last year. Drayton said Medina's experience on the committee and two "intense training sessions" with Drayton earned his trust. But Sen. Cain Norris said Drayton's absence will be a problem, and he should have resigned. "He won't be able to put his full effort into the duties of the office," Norris said. "He is trying to have his cake and eat it, too." While Norris said he does not doubt Medina's qualifications, he believes if Drayton is going to leave his duties in Gainesville, he should leave his title here as well. But Drayton's announcement oniy consumed about 15 minutes of a nearly four-hour Senate meeting. After three weeks of setbacks and delays, senators approved all SG agency positions and Cabinet directors and secretaries presented by Student Body President Kevin Reilly. Some senators pleaded for reconsideration of many nominees, but no appointments were actually overturned. Among the Student disagreements was GOMPUMM311t the approval of Sen. Zenia Birdie as Cabinet Family Affairs Secretary, which constituted a nearly one-hour debate. Sen. Sam Miorelli said Birdie is ineligible to handle the position because she does not have her own family. "It would be similar to appointing someone who had never been in the military to be head of veterans affairs," Miorelli said. Birdie defended her qualifications and said not having a family of her own will serve as a balance by enabling her to offer an unbiased student perspective on issues. Tke 5alon @716 71 6 W.

THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Haile residents discuss rape with law enforcement By CHRISTOPHER MYERS Alligator Contributing Writer Haile Plantation residents met with law enforcement officials Wednesday evening to discuss safety questions that arose in the aftermath of the Haile sexual assault case. On May 21, a 36-year-old woman was attacked and raped by an armed man in Haile during her early morning jog. The attacker is still at large, and police have released a composite sketch in hopes of locating him. Officials from the Alachua County Sheriff's Office spoke during the meeting, which took place in the Kanapaha Middle School cafeteria. They shared rape prevention techniques and provided case updates. "There's a lot of fear," Sheriff Sadie Darnell said. "There's a lot of very valid concerns for safety, and so we want to be as accessible as possible to answer any of the questions and allay the concerns." During the meeting, officials also denounced rumors that the case is receiving so much attention because it occured in a wealthy area. Lt. Stephen Maynard, spokesman for the Sheriff's Office, said the reason the rape case was unique was that it occurred in a well-lit area within view of passing motorists. The suspect walked away from the scene and Suspect got into a car without any attempt to hide his identity, Maynard said. "This has everything to do with the violent nature of the attack," he said. Deputies also spoke of the importance of neighborhood watches and Rape Aggression Defense classes. The classes are available, and one could be scheduled to meet the needs of Haile residents, Maynard said. The class teaches self-defense techniques and that just yelling "rape" may not be enough to get someone to come help, said Deputy Shawn Pagel of the R.A.D. program. "It's not what you yell, it's how you yell it," Pagel said. UF spokesman says reserves are committed to other projects RESERVE, from page 1 "That's a very minimal amount for what good business practices would dictate," Orlando said. "We have to keep a certain amount, and really it should be more." He said it would be irresponsible to use the money for recurring expenses, such as payroll. But Biro disagrees. "I think people should come before equipment," he said. Leroy Dubeck, a Temple University physics professor, created the report. He said he was surprised to learn UF did not channel any of its restricted reserves to avoid layoffs because of the fund's growth since 2003 ,U F i' andbecause economic downturns only last a few years. He used UF's annual financial audits to the Florida Auditor General from 2003 to 2007 to determine that UF was in excellent financial condition by the end of June 30, 2007. Bret Seferian, vice president of the bargaining council for Graduate Assistants United, said Dubeck's conclusion is inconsistent with how UF is representing itself in light of recent budget cuts. The report has only made GAU members more suspicious of UF administration, Seferian said. "Now is the time to use your rainy-day fund," he said. "If you never use them, then they never serve a purpose." -. years totb irresponsible e e. You l T.t7 -You'll n1eve0 Relax.

6, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2008 Editorial he boys and girls of summer are hitting their (home run) strides, and we at the Department of Darts and Laurels couldn't be more pumped. The Gators softball team has eamed its first-ever Women's College World Series birth, the upstart Florida Marlins and Tampa Bay Rays are the surprising leaders of their respective divisions in the big leagues, and we're keeping our fingers crossed for the Gators baseball team as it looks to put a hurting on FSU in the Tallahassee Regional this weekend for the chance to steal their way into the College World Series. So grab an ice-cold brew, a ballpark bratwurst and some Cracker Jacks as we bring you a very special salute-toAmerica's-pastime (and softball, too) edition of Darts & Laurels Leading off, we hurl a high and hard thanks-for-onceagain-disabusing-us-of-the-idea-that-Student-Government-isabout-anything-less-than-personal-advancement DART to UF Student Body Treasurer Paul Drayton for shirking the responsibilities of his office for the personal enrichment of a summer internship at JPMorgan Chase in New York City. While congratulations to Mr. Drayton are certainly in order for his procurement of such a prestigious internship, his act of leaving his post without resigning is tantamount to a slap in the face to the student body. As an elected Student Government official, Drayton has a duty to his fellow students to serve with distinction, or failing that, to the best of his abilities. Unfortunately, Drayton's display of hubris is the rule, not the exception, for what we've come to expect from the people elected to serve us in SG. It would be nice if the members of SG would at least pretend their office meant more to them than a line on their resumes. Up next, we fire a it's-good-to-see-you-back-in-town-butyour-illicit-actions-make-us-frown DART to former Gators Basketball great Joakim Noah. While anyone who has led the Gators to consecutive basketball National Championships is more than welcome to retum to the heart of The Gator Nation any time, we're left scratching our heads over the disappointing events of this past weekend. Noah's return to Gainesville over the Memorial Day weekend was spoiled by an arrest on charges of possession of marijuana and violation of the city's open-container law. Then, less than 24 hours after his arrest, Noah was issued two traffic citations for driving with a suspended license and for failing to wear a seat belt. Whether he likes it or not, Noah is a role model for young, aspiring hoops stars, as well as an ambassador for his alma mater. His behavior is a poor reflection on UF and a stain on his stellar athletic contributions to the Orange and Blue. Here's to hoping Noah will gethis act together and cease to be the proverbial (Chicago) Bull in a China shop. Next, a we-always-knew-there-was-of-an-action-hero-inyou LAUREL goes to Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner Charles Bronson (not to be confused with the silver screen tough guy of the same name, best known for his role in the "Death Wish" film series) for delivering a clarion call to the airheads in Washington on the need to look into the outrageous fuel prices facing Floridians -as well as the rest of the country -at the pump. Bronson implored Congress and President Bush to open an investigation into the possibility of price gouging. "We're being taken for a ride, and the evidence is everywhere, from the escalating prices we pay to fill up our vehicles with gasoline to the purchase of virtually all consumer goods," said Bronson. Thanks for going to bat for Floridians while our national leaders have failed us so breathtakingly on this importan economic issue. Batting cleanup, we present a here's-looking-at-you-kid(s) LAUREL to the UF softball team for reaching its first Women's College World Series. We extend a hearty congratulations to Coach Tim Walton and his squad for this momentous acheivement.

A key reason for this is the perpetuation of several myths that make it taboo to wander outside the same hackneyed health care reforms that have been failing for the past 40 years. The first myth would be the U.S. has the best health care in the world. Don't get me wrong, we certainly have some of the finest doctors and facilities, but they don't do us any good if the vast majority of people can't use them. It's like having a Maserati with no keys. Perhaps the most telling gauge of our medical prowess comes from a study published earlier this year that ranked the U.S. at No. 19 out of 19 industrialized countries for the treatment of amenable diseases like cancer, heart disease and complications from surgery. Who came in at No. 1? France, with their "socialist nightmare" of a health care system. Another barrier to intelligent conversation on this important issue is the contention that a national health care program would cost too much. A 2005 study from the National Coalition on Health Care dispelled this myth. The study looked at four different scenarios of health reform, including plans similar to those of the current presidential candidates as well as a publicly financed national health insurance program. After 10 years, the other plans would save about $350 billion each. That's after a 5-year period of increased costs. By comparison, the public plan would save over $1 trillion in 10 years, with no period of increased costs. But anytime someone mentions national health insurance, images of long waiting lines and grandmas dying in the streets due to lack of access are instantly conjured up. The reality is, however, that even in Canada -the most underfunded country with universal health care -less than 1 percent are on a waiting list, and only 10 percent of those on a waiting list wait for more than Brandon Sack four months. Iettersaallig or.org Then why do so many Canadians _tters__mgtor__r come over here to get health care? Well, they don't. A 2002 study showed that 0.11 percent of Canadians came to the U.S. for health care. In 2003 though, Americans spent $695 million on prescription drugs from the land of maple and hockey. Last but not least, there's the notion that for-profit freemarket models of health insurance encourage efficiency and provide the best possible coverage. The best argument against this is history. From 1929 to 1965, the health care market was totally unregulated and it remains hollowly regulated today. In 1965, Medicare was created because -surprise -instead of pushing for more efficiency and greater standards of care, insurance companies simply chased profits by excluding the sick, poor and elderly. Today, Medicare and Medicaid operate with administrative costs of around 3 percent, while private industry spends 16 to 26 percent of its money on non-medical costs like marketing, CEO salaries and shareholder dividends -so much for efficiency Are there problems with publicly funded governmentrun health care? Yes. But we can overcome them by learning from the mistakes and successes of our neighbors in the world community. We ought to have a health care system that addresses the needs of every American, especially our grandmas.

The Music Man Local's music Web site a staple in Gainesville SHAW PATTON* AVENUE WRITER His birth name is Shawn Dalton, but even his mother affectionately calls him "Glyph."

Glypher graduated from UF in 1998 and since then has managed to "land a couple of jobs doing computer-geek type stuff." He has been doing Web development and database design for about five years at the U.S. Geological Survey. But Glypher is akin to a secondtier celebrity in Gainesville due to his pet project. "I don't know how much weight my name carries," Glypher said. "I don't really think of myself as a famous or well-known person. I run a stupid little Web site."

I run a stupid little Web site. Shawn Dalton networking. "Now its passe. Everybody's doing it," he said. "When I started, nobody was doing that." The Web site is labeled as the "source for the local music in Gainesville, FL." Many use it for its "Upcoming Shows" page, which includes all major Gainesville venues and lists ticket prices, show times, bands playing and even the fliers associated with each show. There are approximately 5,000 registered accounts on the Web site. In its first month online, GainesvilleBands.com received 2,500 hits but now receives a lot more, Glypher said. Part of the reason a Web site like Glypher's can be so successful is because of the deeply ingrained music culture in Gainesville. The town is rich in musical history and in its pure volume of shows every week. "No matter what genres you want to find, there's somebody in Gainesville doing it," Glypher said. "There's also somebody doing it poorly." GainesvilleBands.com also facilitates community discussion with its categorized forums.

8, ALLIGATOR N THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2008 'Sex and the City' scores in big screen debut Any fan of the show will tell you that one of the most anticipated films of the year is the "Sex and the City" movie. Set three years after the series' end, this flick had a lot to live up to. Like any movie based on a TV show, the film already has a lot to overcome. It's hard not to feel like you're watching a very long -two and a half hours, to be exact -episode of the show with an entire season's worth of plotlines crammed into it. That's not an exaggeration: They celebrate three holidays in the movie, four if you count Fashion Week. But they pull it off, and the movie didn't feel as long as it was. We reunite with our girls to find that Charlotte and her husband have adopted a Chinese girl, Miranda is with Steve and their son in Brooklyn, Samantha moved to Hollywood with her movie-star lover and Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Big have been living happily ever after since we found out his name was John. Of course, the happiness is short-lived, and soon we see that the girls face big hurdles in their relationships. Samantha is worried she might not be able +are to stay faithful when she realizes her whole life now revolves around a single man, and when Carrie and Big decide to get married, he suffers from a severe case of cold feet after their small wedding starts to spiral out of control. The film is surprisingly wellwritten and also well-acted. Though, like any movie, there are a few things that make you raise an eyebrow. Doesn't Charlotte's daughter have a baby sitter? And why does Samantha even live in L.A. when she spends all her time in New York? But there's so much going on that you let all the little things slide. Along the way, the drama is mediated by big laughs and lots of tears, all culminating with Big and Carrie's wedding. Do they or don't they? You'll have to find out for yourself. In the end, it can only be described as the most epic chick flick of all time. With enough twists and turns to make anyone's head spin, the movie takes us into the lives of our four favorite New Yorkers for one last Cosmo.

THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2008 m ALLIGATOR, 9 First stop: relationships Relationships are as common as double-headed love bugs in March. You've established a relationship with everyone you've ever met -from your professors and peers to the Chick-Fil-A guy who knows your order before you even reach the register. In order to progress, understand and enjoy sex, you will first need to understand relationships. Sex without a relationship is like sex without a condom. It feels great, but it can lead to trouble. Here's how to protect yourself. The first type of relationship is friendship, which occurs when there is understanding, trust and respect without sex. If you choose to take your relationship to the next level, it can be risky. Whether the sex is good or bad, it can end with a possible-yet-unrealistic happily ever after or a terribly awkward situation. Your friends should be the people who you're sharing your stories with, not your bed. The second type is known by many names: friends with benefits, bed buddies, eight to eights, etc. Don't take these pseudo-relationships too seriously because problems occur when emotions run outside of the sack. If you get too attached you can wind up with hurt feelings. So take it for what it's worth and have fun. The final type of relationship is based on love. Love is like a second job: It requires lots of time, energy and effort. Love is when you can imagine your current crush in 50 years with gray hair and sagging body parts, and they're still attractive in your eyes. If you're willing to put in the work, you'll have something wonderful. You'll have what most people are looking for. Site offers several services G LYPH, from page 7 many things other than instruments are sold there. The "Create-A-Band" forum is like personal ads for those wishing to join or start up a band. "People have said to me, 'Oh, we found our drummer' or 'We found our guitar player on your site,' and that is fine," Glypher said. He tries to keep the Web site a respectful online community. "The thing is, this isn't like the real interweb with total anonymity," he said. "As big as people think Gainesville is someone is going to take offense in real life." Fights have broken out in the past over what was written on forums, he said. And while other similar Web sites were around before GainesvilleBands.com, none stood the test of time. Even in Florida, the site is unique in its community involvement and practical use. Searches for Web sites in Tampa; Orlando and Tallahassee show only skeletons of a cohesive online, local music community. There is a lot resting on Glypher's shoulders, but in an optimistic outlook, it is the community that really makes such a Web site possible. 0*1 Gainesville's Premier Hookah Lounge _with great Mediterranean Cuisine 3783179 +1120 W Un r \,eA HEALTH INSURANCE "Students need Health Insurance.

Sports THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2008 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Veterans not surprised by Gators' postseason bid E UF OPENS PLAY FRIDAY AGAINST TULANE. By SHANNON McCARTHY Alligator Staff Writer smccarthy@aIigator.org The last time the Gators were here, things were different, but the same. The 2005 team that stormed all the way to the championship series in the College World Series wasn't expected to make it that far. That squad was picked to finish third in the Southeastern Conference's East division. Instead, all they did was win the regular-season SEC title and sweep their way to Omaha, Neb., college baseball's Promised Land. This year, with a new coaching staff in place and only three players remaining from that CWS team, the Gators were picked to finish fifth in the SEC East and 11th overall in the conference. Instead, the young team finished third overall in arguably the nation's toughest conference. But ask these Gators if they think they've exceeded expectations, and the answer is a resounding no. "Not in our eyes," said senior designated hitter Bryson Barber, one holdout from that '05 team. "When we saw our collection of players at the beginning of the year, we knew we had a good shot of getting to a regional. From the outside looking in, maybe you didn't see it, but everybody Baseball here expected us to." Stephen Locke, a freshman midweek starter then and the scheduled game one starter now, agreed. "Even though a lot of people didn't expect us to be there, I think there's a pretty good group of us that expected to be in the mix toward the end of the year," he said. "We knew we were a capable team." It is a team just as capable as the 2005 Gators, but perhaps in different ways. SEE BASE, PAGE 20 Harrison Diamond / Alligator UF pitcher Stephen Locke throws a pitch during the Gators' 8-5 loss at Jacksonville on March 26. Locke and the Gators will start postseason play this weekend in Tallahassee against Tulane. WCWS a sign of things to come he funny thing is, you probably won't think the Gators making the Women's College World Series is a big deal a couple of years from now. Tim Walton isn't going to all of a sudden turn his tucked in shirt, fairly cleanshaven look into a disheveled mess. He isn't going to have his players stop dressing up for road games or cleaning up the softball stadium when he finds one -yes, just one -cup on the ground outside the team's locker room. "This isn't a one-time thing," senior Mary Ratliff said. "This is going to be a .yearly event. It's going to be a realistic goal every year from now on." Just going into last season the softball program was giddy when they'd make a regional game. Heck, maybe even win one while there. Then they got to the decisive game in Super Regional play. Now they've won Super Regionals with a team that has one senior and nine freshmen. Brian Steele Steele-ing Bases tsteele@aligator.org Let's put it this way: Tim Walton cares about his players and is sensitive to what they go through -you have to be that way to a certain degree with collegiate female athletes. But by no means is he easy on them. "This place will eat you up and spit you out," he said. In other words, don't come here unless you want to challenge yourself. That means you don't get the lackadaisical students -like me sometimes -who just do enough in the classroom to get by. You don't get players who come to practice exactly on time and leave as soon as it's over.

While UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan originally named junior Patrick Keating (8-1, 3.47 ERA) as his game one starter and tabbed Locke (5-2, 3.07 ERA) as his starter for game two, the rotationhas been flip-flopped after additional musing. "Coach O'Sullivan called me after we'd all gotten home (Monday) and told me that he decided to switch it up," Locke said. "He just looked at the matchups. Tulane is a big base-stealing team a lot like us. He figured with me being lefthanded it would slow the running game down a little bit." With Conference USA Pitcher of the Year Shooter Hunt on the mound opposite Locke, Friday's matchup in Tallahassee figures to be a low-scoring affair, so one stolen base, one bunt, one run could be the difference. But O'Sullivan was more concerned with leaving his lefty on the shelf for too long. "The biggest thing is it was kind of sitting in our minds that we went up to Birmingham and Stephen never touched the mound, and he's arguably our hottest pitcher as of late." ."The biggest thing is it was -kind of sitting in our minds that we went up to Birmingham and Stephen never touched the mound."

20, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2008 Upperclassmen stress one-game-at-a-time focus BASE, from page 19 "Back in 2005, we were a long ball team, and now we steal bases," Barber said. "Different players, different system. everything's different." So as UF prepares to face Tulane, the three remaining veterans are stressing the lesson they learned three years ago to their teammates. It's a tired baseball cich, but one that especially holds true this time of year. "We're telling these guys you just have to take it one game at a time," Barber said. "If we do that and play our game, we have a good shot of looking up and being in Omaha." Senior first baseman Brandon McArthur, the starting third baseman on that CWS team, pointed to the path those BRIAN, from page 19 alcohol around downtown Gainesville while having a marijuana cigarette in your pocket. Stacey Nelson doesn't look like that big of a hippie, after all. Walton's recruiting student athletes who smash the ball and smash test curves, pitchers who throw a hard rise ball and rise in society. When Kim Waleszonia was debating on whether to come Gators took to Omaha as an example. "In 2005 when we had Stetson, they played with us every game that year," McArthur said. "It wasn't like it was a cakewalk to move on. Luckily we were able to pull that one out, and the next night we faced hometown Andrew Miller [of North Carolina]." Miller is with the Florida Marlins now, and was the Tar Heels ace back then. The Gators will face a simiMcArthur lar task when they go up against Tulane's Shooter Hunt. Just as they wouldn't look past Stetson to facing Miller then, they won't look ahead to potentially playing Florida State until after they've faced Hunt and the Green Wave. "You've got to take it game by game," back this semester after her father was dealing with cancer, Walton didn't promise Lester Waleszonia his daughter would win another AllAmerican honor. He promised him he'd make her graduate. Urban Meyer and Billy Donovan can't make these promises with the same success. Most of their big-time recruits think they'll be running past NFL linebackers and have Gatorade begging them to say, "Is it in you?" on national TV. But when your sport lacks the big bucks of professional leagues, and people haven't praised you since your first layup or hit, it becomes easier to sell parents and students on a good life in front of a good program. I'm far from certain that UF will win the world series this year. They were just heavily tested against a Pac-10 team, and the SEC simply doesn't have the guns right now that the Pac-10 and Big 12 do. But I am certain that the Gators will, someday sooner rather McArthur said. "You can't look ahead and you can't look behind you. You've got to play for that moment because in the long run, you can look back and regret some of the things that you did while thinking about the future." For Barber and McArthur, and perhaps Locke, the future does not hold more college baseball. The three veterans were excited to be back in the postseason one final time, but they aren't satisfied yet. "The honor of getting into the postseason is pretty meaningful," McArthur said, "just knowing that all of the hard work you've done and the games you played throughout the year have somewhat paid off. "But our job isn't over. We've got to keep working and going at things." He paused, then added with a smile: "Hopefully we can keep playing for another month." *than later, have a program that will make the UCLAs and Californias blush. Walton wouldn't have eight girls from California -the hotbed for softball -on his roster if he wasn't building an impressive program. The Gators will probably come home empty handed this year. But Jeremy Foley better start making room in his trophy case, because softball may very well end up being the best sports team year in and year out on this campus. r -A--I' GREAT LOCATION 3 RESORT-STYLE SWIMMING POOLS PRIVATE BEDROOMS & FITNESS CENTER & CARDIO ROOM TANNING BED GAME ROOM WITH PRIVATE BATHROOMS BILLIARDS, CARD TABLE & KITCH-EN LIGHTED BASKETBALL COURT INTERNET & SATELLITE TELEVISION PROVIDED SAND VOLLEYBALL COURTS COMPUTER CENTER :T UP TO A -~ IFTCADII |THE kUSIGN A LEASE ESTATES OVE-IN FEES 352.692.1313 3527 S.W. 20I AVE.

The lone lefty in UF's rotation could be playing in his last college postseason. While Locke has one more year of eligibility, he has already graduated with a bachelor's degree in sport management. "I kind of want to see whats out there for me," Locke said. "If nothing really works out, then I still have the option of coming back." Senior first baseman Brandon McArthur has been there throughout Locke's career, and he has seen the process and the progress. "Sully made a point to all of the pitching staff to let them know at the beginning of the year that (Locke) wasn't supposed to be one of the weekend starters," McArthur said. "But he never quit working, and eventually he worked his way back into the rotation." Locke is the only UF pitcher with postseason experience. As a freshman, he started the first game of the championship series against Texas in 2005. He is now looking forward to getting another shot at postseason glory. "With this possibly being my last year, I'm going to take it all in a little more and try to enjoy it," Locke said. S I '/ see office for details & ~ $2 I '0 ro

Lester had to be in te hospital five to seven days at a time. Cathy would take the day shift, and Kimwould take over at night. "She totally focused on him," Cathy said. "During the daytime, she would go to the gym, do workouts, try her best to keep in shape for softball." It was a tough balancing act for Kim, who kept in mind that she would be playing softball again someday. It wasa prospectthat becamemuch more real after a phone call from a friend. It was Halloween, and UF ace Stacey Nelson called her to say the team had a meeting onwhat they weem going to have to do without their little 5-foot-4 dynamo. "That's when I started to think I could comeback," shetsaid. December presented another gut-wrenching decision, one that she couldn'tmake from California. She wanted to surprise her teammates with a trip to Gainesville. Moreimportantly, she wanted to see if she could handle being away from her father. She attended a Christmas party and took team pictures, with her decision all but made. "We encouraged her to go," Cathy said. "She hadbeen at her dad's side and we said, 'Kim, you need to go and give it atry."' The first Sunday in January, the day before classes started, Kim arrived in Gainesville for the spring semester. That Tuesday she got the call from her mother. This time the phone rang with an echo of what was about to happen. Lester's condition had worsened, and they didn't think he was going to make it to Friday, when she was suppose to head back to California. Cathy asked Kim to tell her father it was OK for him to go, and for the last time, she spoke to her dad on the phone. He wasn't well enough to respond, but he understood the message just the same. He passed away a fewhours later. Making History Her second mturn to campus was tougher to make, but the first game was less than a month away, and the team neededoneof its leaders. "Shefelt like she had to earn her role back," senior Mary Ratliff said. "But it was hers the whole time." She recorded the first at-bat by a Gator in2008, penciled in at the leadoff spot where she would start all70 games wearing the Orange and Blue. Kim was coming off a sophomore season in which she earned AllSoutheastew Conference first-team honors and became UF's first ever AllAmerican position player. With the leader of their lineup back in uniform and between the lines, the team soaed to unprecedented heights. The Gators finished the season with a No. 1 ranking and the No. Iloverall seed in the NCAA Toumament. Kim is hitting .368, has stolen 22 bases and has scored 61 runs -a school record -coming into the WCWS. As a result of their tremendous season, the Gators were rewarded with home-field advantage in Regional and Super Regional play Cathy sat behind home plate for every last pitch. "I was never so happy to be anyplace in my life," she said. She was there for the Regional, when her daughter lifted UF to a 10-0 defeat of Central Florida in the championship game. "I'mnotsumhow much of itIsaw, I was jumping up and down so much." The team manager handed her the two home run balls Kim hit in that game as a way to remember her daughter's amazing performance. Friends and family joined Cathy in Gainesville to watch Kim play in the Super Regional against Cal. Two of her cousins, Jeff and Jenny, came to watch her play So did their mom, Mary, and her husband, Lynn. Jeff's girlfriend, Jane, was there. Together they held up signs and wore No. 5 sitrts with "Waleszonia" across their backs. And when the Gators achieved their goal of earning a trip to Oklahoma City to play in the WCWS, they were all there to celebrate. ."There were plenty of emotions," Cathy said. "We were jumping up and down screasning." Remembering Inside the Waleszonia's home in Fontana, a poster hangs in the dining room. "Orange andlBlue. Thinking of You. Get well soon." The team made it for Lester while he was sick during the fall semester, each one of them signed it. "It meant a lot to Lester," Cathy said. "He couldn't believe that they would do that for him." While Kimhas enjoyed tremendous success on the field, it's a promise coach Tn Walton made to her father that he puts above everything else. "Talking to her dad when he first was diagnosed with cancer, I made a promise to him that her daughter would graduate from the University of Florida," he said. "Getting that degree is No. 1, and whatshe doeson the field is a bonus." In Oklahoma City, she'll have the chance to deliver the biggestbonus the program and the conference has ever seen. The firstnationalchampionship ever won by an SEC school. Though she just arrived back home on Tuesday, Cathy will be there for the Gators' first game on Thursday, bringing friends and family along for the ride. "There are a lot of people in Kim's comer," she said. "I can't tell you how many people will be watching." All of them will support No. 5 as she takes center field with a tiny, wlite gold feather glistening around her neck. The Waleszonias, without a doubt, know two people who arewatching. The tiny, whitegold feather says so. Dream becomes reality as No. I Gators get set for first ever WCWS 0 UF HAS IMPROVED EACH YEAR IN TIM WALTON'S THREE SEASONS. By MIKE DiFERDINANDO Alligator Staff Writer mdiferdinando@aligator.org When Tim Walton came to UF three years ago all he had was a dream. Now that dream has turned into a reality. As the No. 1 Gators prepare for their first game of the Women's College World Series against Louisiana-Lafayette today, they can't help but look back on the long road that they traveled to get to this point. "Three years ago, we sold these kids on V a dream, to do things the right way and not cut cowers," Walton said. "I thought that we had a program with the resources that was capable of competing with the best teams in the country." He has done just that. In three years, he has taken UF frot an average Southeastern Conference team to the WCWS and the favorite to win the national title. In his first year, he took the Gators to regional play. In his second, all the way to a Super Regional championship game where UF would fall to higher-seeded Texas A&M. But now in his third year, Walton has the Gators where he always thought they could be -in Oklahoma City for the WCWS. "We're at the University of Florida where championships are expected," Walton said. "You come here to win a championship." UF has never been to the WCWS before, and no school from the SEC has ever won a national title. But after storming r through the Regional and Super Regional portion of the tournament, the Gators Walton look poised to make history.

24, ALLIGATOR N THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2008 Horschel leads UF on Day I STAFF REPORT It shouldn't come as any surprise that when the No. 6 UF men's golf team opened play on Wednesday, it was Billy Horschel who stole the show. As the Gators continue their quest for an NCAA Championship, the twotime All-American carried over his clutch regional performance to pace UF on the. tournament's opening day. "Billy is one of the best players in the country and may not have had as good of a year as he would like," UF coach Buddy Alexander said, "but he stepped up at regionals when we needed him. "He stepped up today because that is what big-time players do and it's what Golf All-Americans do, so I am not surprised. I wouldn't be surprised to see him play solid all week long." Horschel carded an even-par 72 on the day, which placed him in a tie for fourth. He had three birdies on the front nine, entering the turn at one-under. After birdying the 10th hole and making bogeys on 11 and 12, Horschel made par on the last six holes of the course. The Gators finished 14 strokes over par with a 302 as a team, which landed them in a tie for sixth place after the opening round. "The course we are playing is tough," Alexander said. "It has a lot of rough. This is going to be a long race, but this team is confident in their ability." The first Gator to tee off Wednesday afternoon, sophomore Tyson Alexander, recovered well after a double bogey on the second hole. Alexander finished the round with 11 pars and two birdies, which places him in a tie for 40th place on the leaderboard with a three-over 75. Senior Manuel Villegas shot a fourover 76 and is tied for 23rd. Villegas rebounded from +3 on the front nine and helped the Gators climb in the standings with three birdies in his last five holes. Junior Will Strickler contributed with a seven-over 79 performance including two birdies to finish in a tie for 87th place heading into the second day of competition. Senior Tyler Brown began the round strong, making birdies on his .first two holes, but struggled a bit on the back nine. Brown bogeyed 15 and 16 and made double bogeys on the final two holes to finish in a tie for 126th place with an 11-over 83. UF will be paired with Oklahoma State and Clemson once again and will tee off at 7:20 a.m. today. Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers
