Only title will satisfy UF in '09


By ADAM BERRY I
A fter his team's historic, record-breaking
season in 2008, UF coach Tim Walton
said he didn't think any other team
would ever win 70 games, which his squad
did en route to a Women's College World
Series semifinals loss.
But he never said this year's team
couldn't be even better.
It would have been impossible for the
2009 Gators to rack up as many wins as they
did last season, and it seemed unthinkable
that a team could match or improve upon a
historical year like 2008.
"We're definitely a lot deeper and a lot
more experienced and probably a lot more
talented than we were last year," Walton
said. "Last year's team knew how to play
and did some special things, but this year's
team is starting to do a good job of being
able to embrace that and could potentially
even be better than we were before."


aberry@alligator.org
Now, UF is back in Oklahoma City. De-
spite how little has changed between this
year and last year, this is a different team
with a different mission.
The WCWS experience was brand new
for UF in 2008, as it was the first time in
school history the team had reached the fi-
nal leg of the postseason run.
The Gators now have the benefit of ex-
perience on their side, as all but three play-
ers have already played on college softball's
biggest stage.
Kelsey Bruder, the only new starter and
the only unknown quantity before UF's first
game this year, has proven to be one of the
surest things on the roster. The sophomore
has been dominant at the plate and the only
consistent presence in the outfield all sea-
son.
UF has responded to the challenge of be-
ing the No. 1 team in the nation, a position it
has now held for 10 straight weeks.


Harrison Diamond/Alligator Staff


UF sophomore Kelsey Bruder, left, is the Gators' only new starter from a year ago. The right fielder has stepped in after Mary Ratliff
graduated and has excelled at the plate, hitting .385 with 15 home runs and 66 RBIs.


Unlike last season, Walton has developed
more depth at the plate and in the field. Ju-
nior Francesca Enea's preseason ACL tear,
senior Kim Waleszonia's early season knee
fracture and sophomore Tiffany DeFelice's
on-again-off-again wrist injury allowed
some players to step into starting roles.
With the injuries behind them, a 12-deep
group of hitters and Stacey Nelson in the
pitching circle, the Gators are even better
prepared for a national championship run
than they were last year.

No Pain, No Gain
It's easy to assume that remaining injury-
free is one of the most important aspects of
having a successful season. If only it were
that simple.
The Gators only sustained one mean-
ingful injury in their miracle run last
year, but it came in the WCWS when
DeFelice the five-hole hitter in- We
jured her left wrist. At the time, De-
Felice was as hot as any hitter in the
country. loa
But the injury didn't just cost UF w
one of its best hitters, it exposed a th(
crack in the armor: The bench play-
ers were relatively inexperienced and
untested.
"We really didn't have any depth
once you got past our starting nine,"
Walton said. "This year, we're going to go
probably 10, 11 or 12 deep."
This season, Walton made a noticeable
attempt to get more of his players involved,
even when everyone was healthy at the be-
ginning of the season.
Enea's torn ACL limited the number of
innings she could play in the first month or
so of play, but senior Brooke Johnson proved
to be a more-than-capable left fielder and
pinch runner whenever the need arose.
Despite the injury, Enea jumped out as
one of hottest hitters in the nation and still
had the luxury of resting her knee late in
games when the Gators had a big lead.


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
UF center fielder Kim Waleszonia missed most of the season with a knee injury but returned in time for postseason play.
TOP: UF pitcher Stacey Nelson, right, leads the nation with a 0.41 ERA and ranks second in victories (39) and shutouts (20). The senior
pitched 12 shutout innings in the Gators' doubleheader sweep of California during Sunday's Super Regional.


"We're a little bit more experienced this
year, and we're able to overcome that adver-
sity and able to pick each other up," second
baseman Aja Paculba said. "One through
twenty, we're solid. With those injuries, we
know that there's someone on the bench
who can come through for us."
Freshman outfielder Michelle Moultrie
brings the kind of speed on the basepaths
and range in the outfield that can prove in-
valuable in the postseason and has experi-
ence after seeing innings early on.
Nobody could have predicted Waleszo-
nia's knee injury that sidelined her for three
months, but Moultrie's early season experi-
ence allowed UF to not miss a beat without
the school's career hits leader.
Moultrie and fellow freshman outfielder
Alicia Sisco, who saw time in right field as

The good thing about this team is thi
've been through every scenario. We
had our backs against the wall, base:
ded, no outs in the College World Se
ith the season on the line. I don't thi,
ere's going to be a situation that they
not prepared for."


tion to that."
Bruder has done it all for the Gators in
2009, batting second immediately following
Waleszonia's injury before settling in as the
five-hole hitter. Her stats are comparable to
those of Enea third on the team in bat-
ting average (.385), second in home runs
(15) and second in RBI (66) providing an
invaluable luxury for the coaching staff and
an absolute nightmare for anyone looking
to pitch to the middle of UF's lineup.
Bruder, a natural infielder who will like-
ly take over at first base next season, has
bought into her role as an outfielder. She
has been the starter in right for most of the
season but has also occasionally moved into
center, allowing Sisco to start in right field
or Waleszonia to take a less strenuous role
upon returning from injury.
The sophomore's performance has
at also made Ratliff's transition from
've outfield to dugout less stressful. As
S the right fielder in 2008, Ratliff has
taken comfort in the fact that her old
ries position is in good hands.
nk "It's been pretty easy. I take tre-
/'re mendous pride in her," Ratliff said.
"It makes me feel like they're a step
better than we were last year. From


UF coach Tim Walton her being one step better, we'll see
how much that pays off in the end."


a result of Waleszonia's injury, can now be
used to mix things up even with Waleszonia
back in the lineup.
"Different people are going to be suc-
cessful in different situations, and they've
all gotten a chance to do that," said student
coach Mary Ratliff, who started in right
field last year. "Injuries are bad, but some-
times they're a blessing as well. We've defi-
nitely gotten the best out of those, and now
at the end of the season, people are back and
ready to go."
Ratliff, Walton and the rest of the coach-
ing staff have found themselves in an en-
joyable predicament: How do they fill out
a lineup card every game with as many op-
tions as they have?
The Gators have 12 players batting above
.250 and nine above .300. They have more
power hitting than they know what to do
with even Paculba, the leadoff hitter, has
nine home runs with a .626 slugging percent-
age. Shortstop Megan Bush, who usually
bats seventh, has the numbers of a cleanup
hitter: .338 batting average, 14 home runs,
43 RBIs and a .719 slugging percentage.
"You can't pitch around anybody," Wal-
ton said. "You pitch around Ali (Gardiner)
and Francesca's going to get you. You pitch
around her, then Kelsey's going to get you.
And it just keeps going on down the road.
Just when you think you've got it, then Mi-
chelle sneaks a bunt or a double in there."
Being forced to overcome the adver-
sity has been a blessing in disguise for the
Gators, but one of the most important ad-
ditions to the lineup didn't come from an
injury.

Stepping In, Stepping Up
Ratliff the starting right fielder and
only senior on last year's team consis-
tently provided clutch hits when her team
needed them and brought the kind of lead-
ership one would expect from a senior.
But if you ask her, someone else probably
should have been playing her position.
"I tell (Walton) every day he looks dumb
for not playing that Bruder kid last year,"
Ratliff said. "I expected her to have a really
good year, but I don't think you can ex-
pect someone to come in and do what she's
done."
Last year, Bruder batted a meager .133,
going 6 for 45 with one homer, seven RBIs
and 15 strikeouts. Ratliff described the 2008
Bruder as one-dimensional at the plate a
straight, dead-pull hitter.
"Kelsey's done the same thing that all
the great ones have done," Walton said.
"You look at Francesca's freshman year and
Stacey Nelson's freshman year and Kelsey
Bruder's freshman year, and they learned
how to play at this level. Kelsey's no excep-


If Bruder's breakout season puts the


Gators one step closer to the program's first
national title, then it could be their experi-
ence that pushes them over the edge.

Been There, Done That
Pressure is nothing new for UF.
The Gators found themselves in a do-or-die
situation against Virginia Tech in last year's
WCWS. In a 0-0 game in the bottom of the sev-
enth and UF one loss away from elimination,
the Hokies loaded the bases with no outs.
Nelson forced a double play and a ground-
out to preserve the shutout and force the game
into extra innings, and the Gators prevailed in
the ninth thanks to some clutch hitting by Gar-
diner, Enea and Ratliff.
"The good thing about this team is that
we've been through every scenario," Walton
said. "We've had our backs against the wall,
bases loaded, no outs in the College World Se-
ries with the season on the line. I don't think
there's going to be a situation that they're not
prepared for."
UF has seen every team's best effort this sea-
son, as the team has been ranked No. 1 in the
nation nearly all year. The pressure may have
been too much in 2008 and maybe even at
the beginning of 2009, as the Gators dropped
their third game of the year to Baylor.
"Now, I think we're able to play as opposed
to worrying about the expectations," Walton
said. "Everybody coming into the season was
a little bit fearful of the expectations. So we just
worried about how to play, and the other stuff
just kind of takes care of itself."
When the Gators once again step on to col-
lege softball's biggest stage, it will come after
a season full of dealing with expectations.
The presence of ESPN cameras won't have
an effect on the team like it did last year -
although the players will likely still pay more
attention to their hair and makeup than they
would for non-televised games, as Enea said
every player does before taking the field.
"We're ready to go back, and that expe-
rience has paid off all season," Ratliff said.
"We've had the advantage of being on TV be-
fore. We just kind of get in a process and play
the game. Once the first pitch is thrown, you
forget about those things. Last year's experi-
ence, I think, was key to this year's team."
Whether it was a learning experience or
simply a tournament that last year's team
wasn't capable of winning, UF has shored up
its major flaws from 2008, added much-need-
ed depth at the plate, added a talented young
star and become the most experienced team
in the field.
Now, the Gators are five wins away from
an astounding two-year record of 135-8 and
achieving the goal they made after the WCWS
in 2008: bringing home the national champi-
onship in 2009.

Seminary Lane I



to close Friday


By ROBERTA 0. ROBERTS
Alligator Contributing Writer

It was raining late Tuesday after-
noon. Calvin Bryant, 66, sat on his
porch with his 2-year-old grandson
on his lap.
"If I leave I can't take them, where
are they going to go until their moth-
er gets situated?" Bryant said, refer-
ring to his 2-year-old grandson and
9-month-old granddaughter.
Bryant lives in Seminary Lane
Apartments, which will be dosed
by Friday. Residents have to move
out before the subsidized housing
project is closed down due to inade-
quate floor plans, development and
management. The closure was an-
nounced earlier this year, and Bry-
ant said that he still does not have a
place to go.


Bryant said that he qualified for
a Section 8 voucher that would pay
rent, but has yet to find anyone that
will rent to him at voucher prices.
He received the voucher a little
more than two weeks ago.
The public housing project, 1019
NW 5th Ave., is scheduled to be torn
down on an unknown date.
"Hopefully soon," said Karen
Godley, vice chairman of Gainesville
Florida Housing Corporation, Inc.,
the nonprofit organization that
owns the complex.
"The construction was not ad-
equate in the very beginning," God-
ley said. "The repair issues cannot
be fixed easily."
Repair issues included uneven
floors, lack of insulation and leaky
roofs.

Artist faces felony charge


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@a Iligator org

UF art major Sergio A. Castro, 22, is facing
a felony charge of criminal mischief after be-
ing arrested early Tuesday morning while try-
ing to spray-paint a memorial for his friend on
the side of The Top restaurant in downtown
Gainesville.
A Gainesville Police Department officer
noticed Castro spray-painting the words "RIP
MUCH" in gold on the side of the building
alongside a paper mural of his friend, Barry
Bernard, the 25-year-old Gainesville man whose
body was found Monday near the Matanzas In-
let in St. Johns County.
Bernard was swimming with friends at Sum-
mer Haven Beach on Sunday afternoon when
he lost his boogie board and was overtaken by
the rough waves.
Castro, wearing a black mask to hide his
identity, stopped painting and walked away
when he noticed the officer, according to a GPD
incident report.


After the officer caught up with him, Cas-
tro said he was trying to paint the words "RIP
MUCH LOVE," the report stated.
Castro also admitted to pasting a mural of
his friend on one of the front windows of Amer-
ican Apparel, 15 SW 1st Ave., where Bernard
worked for more than two years.
Castro was arrested on one
count of third degree felony
criminal mischief, punishable
by up to five years in prison
and a $5,000 fine. In addition,
because the alleged crime in-
volved graffiti, it is possible
Castro could face an addi-
castro tional fine of $250, if it is his
first conviction. He could also
be required to perform at least 40 hours of com-
munity service.
A co-owner of The Top and a manager of
American Apparel both said they did not wish
to press charges against Castro.
Scott Shillington, co-owner of The Top, 30
N. Main St., said Tuesday evening that he went

* ASO HOPES THE GUN
BOUNTY PROGRAM WILL BE
MORE COST EFFECTIVE.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Staff Writer
kemmets@alligator.org

As of today, the Alachua Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office will pay $1,000 to
citizens who provide information
regarding any crime in Alachua
County when a gun is used.
ASO spokesman Steve Maynard
said that considering some cases
rack up a $50,000 budget before
they are solved, the Gun Bounty
Program will hopefully be more
cost effective and take less time.
"It will be completely anony-
mous," Maynard said. "We never
have to see or talk to the callers
face to face."
To ensure anonymity, the caller


will receive a PIN and the location
of a local bank where he or she can
collect the reward money.
"A thousand dollars is a small
expenditure to receive intelligence
that will help us catch a robber or
murderer," Maynard said.
"It will be completely
anonymous. We never have
to see or talk to the callers
face to face."
Steve Maynard
ASO spokesman

The idea for the program came
from Deputy Kathy Zedalis who
saw a rise in violent crime and
began researching how to stop it
from climbing.
Those with information about
guns that would interest Crime
Stoppers should contact 352-372-
7867.

Crist signs legislation that makes zero-tolerance more tolerant


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Gov. Charlie
Crist has signed a bill that will make the
zero-tolerance policies adopted by many
Florida schools more tolerant.
Crist signed the bill Wednesday. Chil-
dren will no longer be arrested for insig-
nificant violations such as petty theft,
bringing plastic butter knives to school,
drawing pictures of guns, throwing eras-
ers or vandalizing property.
The bill's sponsor, Jacksonville Re-


publican Sen. Stephen Wise, has said it
will save money and prevent kids from
unfairly having criminal records.
It also will require schools that al-
low corporal punishment to review their
policies at public meetings every three
years.
The bill (SB 1540) passed the Senate
39-0 on April 29. The House passed it
119-0 two days later.

STUDENT LIFE

Growl team wants student input to help decide acts


By JESSICA CHAPMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

For the first time in UF history,
the Gator Nation will have a say
in who entertains the thousands of
orange-and-blue clad fans at Gator
Growl.
Unlike years past, UF students
and Gainesville community mem-
bers now have a chance to vote for
their favorite musical acts and come-
dians to appear at the Oct. 24 event.
Until Friday, voting will take
place on campus at the Reitz Union
and Turlington Plaza and also at
Publix and Zaxby's.
The musical performers on
the ballot are Sugarland, ZZ Top,
O.A.R. and Third Eye Blind, while
comedian prospects include Darrell
Hammond, Demetri Martin, Dana


Carvey and Jimmy Fallon.
The Growl production team is
confident that they can match the
students' decision monetarily, but
whether the performers with most
votes can make it depends on their
schedule, said Growl spokesman
Bryan Griffin.
If they can't attend, the Growl
team will ask the runners up to per-
form.
Griffin said the production team
felt that opening the voting to the
public would be more appropriate
than basing the decision on its own
choice.
"We want the Gator Nation to
feel as deserving as the football
team," Griffin said.
In past years, the musicians and
comedians for the show have been
decided by "a more closed election


process," Griffin said.
He said the production team
may extend voting until Tuesday
or Wednesday if it receives positive
feedback from the voters.
"We want the Gator Nation
to feel as deserving as the
football team."
Bryan Griffin
Gator Growl spokesman


Prior to the voting, a survey
asked the public who it would like
to perform at the 2009 show.
While it was only scheduled to
last two weeks beginning on April
20, the production team extended
the suggestion survey until May 18,
Griffin said.


The committee has been trying
to announce the voting to students
by sending e-mails from the UF List-
serv, but it has had technical difficul-
ties.
Although Growl is mostly fund-
ed by sponsorships that won't be re-
ceived until fall, the committee was
able to come up with a ballpark fig-
ure based on last year's budget.
Because the production team
could not determine the cost of po-
tential performers, the committee
was unable to offer voting until the
sumer semester, Griffin said.
He attributed the fact that many
musicians don't determine their fall
tour dates until the summer as an-
other reason for the voting delay.
The committee would have
loved for the voting to take place in
the spring, he said.


"We are trying to make it as ac-
cessible as possible," Griffin said
about the voting.
Although an appearance at
Growl 2009 has not been able to be
confirmed as possible by any of the
potential performers, the team does
have a price estimate of what it can
afford to pay them.
The theme for Growl 2009 is
"Legends of the Swamp," honoring
the senior class that brought UF two
national championship titles.
Griffin said the Growl team is
hoping to bring in former football
players for the show.
"It's exciting and kind of bitter-
sweet to say goodbye to the Gators
that led us to two national champi-
onships," Griffin said. "We want to
honor some of the big names in the
Gator Nation."


SFC provost prepares for new position at NY college


* KRESS WAS NAMED PRESIDENT
OF MONROE COMMUNITY COLLEGE
ON APRIL 27.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Staff Writer
Kemmets@alligator.org

After 10 years at Santa Fe College, Anne
Kress will work her last day Friday before
leaving to become the next president of Mon-


roe Community College in Rochester, N.Y.
On Wednesday, students, faculty and staff
piled into the Alan J. Robertson Administra-
tion Building at SFC's main campus to give
tearful goodbyes and share fond memories of
Kress.
"I enjoy watching you work," SFC Presi-
dent Jackson Sassar told Kress during the fare-
well party.
Sassar said that although Kress' leaving
will be a big loss for Santa Fe, he is excited for
her future and referred to her as the best aca-
demic officer SFC has ever known.


Kress joined the SFC staff in 1999 as an
associate professor of Eng-

the community, and I am going to miss it so
much."

Football complex recognized for sustainability effort


By SARA WATSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

In a sea of orange and blue, UF
can now add green and platinum
to its athletic rainbow.
The Heavener Football Com-
plex, UF's most recent addition to
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, received
a platinum certification from the
Leadership in Energy and Environ-
mental Design Green Building Rat-
ing System.
Of the nation's 130 platinum-
certified buildings, the environ-
mentally sound Heavener Complex
is the first in Florida and the first
athletic facility in the United States
to receive platinum certification.
"We're pretty excited about
achieving platinum," said Carol
Walker, the vice president of the
UF Facilities, Planning and Con-
struction Division, noting that the
initial goal was to achieve silver
certification.
The $28 million building, fund-
ed by the University Athletic As-
sociation, has occupancy sensors
to control lighting, organic carpet
and paint and floors made out of
recycled materials such as tires,
Walker said.
Although the cost of construc-
tion was high, it will be balanced


by lower operating costs thanks to
energy efficient equipment that re-
duces heating and air conditioning
costs, she said.
Attention to energy efficiency
helps the environment and people
who use the complex, said Bahar
Armaghani, the assistant director
of UF's Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design program.
"And since we spend over 90
percent of time indoors, we need to
provide a healthy indoor environ-
ment for the people," she said.
The complex also features low-
flow water fixtures, water-saving
showerheads and touch-free doors
to help combat germs. Building
materials came from within 500
miles of the complex to reduce
transport-related carbon emissions
and stimulate the local economy.
The use of a point system can
hinder the quality of environmen-
tally friendly buildings, said David
Eardley, president of the student-
run organization Gators for a Sus-
tainable Campus. The stadium
earned 52 out of the 69 available
points for the certification.
"My main problem with [the
program] is that, in my under-
standing, you can pick and choose
things," he said. "You can do really

UF professor discusses regional planning efforts abroad


* HE WORKS WITH PEOPLE FROM
BOLIVIA, BRAZIL AND PERU.

By SHEMUEL ARRINDELL
Alligator Contributing Writer

A well-traveled UF professor spoke
about his experiences in South America to


a crowd of 10 people gathered at the Civic
Media Center Wednesday evening.
Stephen Perz, a UF associate professor
of Sociology, discussed his work with local
people from Bolivia, Brazil and Peru.
The three countries share common bor-
ders, known as the tri-national frontier, and
Perz has been to the area more than 10 times
during the past seven years to work to help


local people more effectively participate in
regional planning.
Many local communities
S al do not have access to informa-
News tion about large-scale changes
such as new roads or climate
change, which can still affect
their lives, Perz said.
This can lead to social problems involv-


ing human rights abuses as well as environ-
mental problems such as deforestation, as
seen in the 1980s and 1990s.
Unless local people get external support,
it is very difficult for them to participate in
regional planning to avoid these problems,
Perz said.
"These things are worth doing because
they need us and we need them," he said.

Safety School

Gators must use caution

when leaving bars
L et's face it, a summer spent in good ol' Gainesville is
sure to include a healthy dose of partying from time
to time.
Whether you enjoy drinking straight from the pitcher at
Gator City or getting your swerve on listening to Notorious
B.I.G. upstairs at Sharab, Gainesville offers a multitude of
fine boozing establishments all over town.
But with late night bar crawls followed by the requisite
early morning stop at Pita Pit for the finest in falafel, stu-
dents often find themselves stumbling home oblivious to
the dangers lurking in the dark.
As a result of increased criminal activity, specifically
robberies near the UF campus, the UF Police Department
released a tip sheet on Wednesday to help students stay
safe. Ranging from not walking alone at night to staying in
well-lit areas, the list offers a few fairly basic recommenda-
tions on how to avoid falling victim to robbery. Interestingly
enough, the one tip that caught our eye suggested avoiding
a level of intoxication that makes you an easy target.
What they are trying to say is go ahead and enjoy your
Dos Equis, just don't keep drinking until you've success-
fully convinced yourself you are the most interesting man
in the world.
We're not here to preach, nor are we pretending to be
your parents. The Editorial Board has been known to fre-
quent a fair share of Gainesville's water holes (OK, more
like every bar) in our day. Rather, we hope a gentle remind-
er of a few things you already know might help prevent an
unfortunate situation from dampering your summer fun.


Loan Sharks


rom scrambling retire-
ment nest eggs to mak-
ing housing foreclosures
more prevalent than Starbucks
on a Seattle street comer, the
economic downturn has been
a real, well, bitch. The latest
to feel the wrath of the reces-
sion's iron fist? Student loan
forgivingness programs.
According to an article in
The New York Times, college
graduates across the country
find themselves financially
strapped thanks to decreased
funding of these programs.
States such as California and
Kentucky have turned to cut-
ting student loan forgiveness
initiatives to help balance a
severely bloated state bud-
get. Created as an incentive to
lure students to embark in ca-
reers such as a special educa-
tion teacher or public interest
lawyer, the programs offer a
chance for a highly discount-
ed degree for giving back to
the community.


While states have relied
on nonprofit organizations to
help foot the bill, the federal
government continues to offer
students a chance at a cheap
education if they commit to
teaching for five years in a
low-income area. The loan
forgiveness from the federal
government, however, checks
in at $17,500 a small dent
in the ever-rising cost of at-
tending a four-year college or
university. Simply put, more
must be done to ensure the
best and the brightest can be
enticed to pursue careers in
education and law that serve
the interests of the masses.
Given America's current
economic climate, our harsh
reality ensures budget cuts
will be made. Hell, few know
better than UF students. But to
dismiss student loan forgive-
ness programs as a money
saving cure-all reflects an ar-
chaic ideology bound to breed
ill-effects in the future.

Guest column

Post-graduation m
ot long ago, I had a friend, who was recently
married, pull me aside in a men's room when
I had brought a date to have dinner with him
and his wife. The desperation in his eyes told me all I
needed to know. "Please tell me you're going to sleep
with this girl," he told me, "because I can't. My life is
over. Look at me, look me in the eyes: Don't. Ever. Get.
Married. You got that? Ever. Don't get me wrong, she's
great, but she's ALWAYS THERE."
Frightening, isn't it?
As school has ended for so many this summer, deci-
sions must have inevitably been made about the future
of many college relationships. Most will eventually go
their separate ways, but some of them will end up stay-
ing with their college sweethearts in the hopes of get-
ting married and living happily ever after. And an idea
like that is an idea on par with an invasion of China.
Life together in college may have been fun, but that
life you knew is over.
Remember those endless Saturday nights spent clos-
ing down Balls, then adjourning to an off-campus house
for a flip-cup tourney? Or those girls/guys trips to Ve-
gas or Miami or New Orleans, where you did things you
swore you'd never speak of again? Or the excitement of
meeting someone new in a place you never thought you
would?
Those are all, for the rest of your life, finished.
You have doomed yourself to a world of social
events that only include other couples. While your
single friends incessantly drunk dial you with tales of
their mid-20s, you're already three hours deep into a so-
ber night's sleep. The late-night flip-cup party has been
replaced by a "party" that consists of you and three


arriage a bad idea
other couples sitting on a couch
watching "It's Me or the Dog."
That's if you're lucky enough
to avoid "Grey's Anatomy."
The craziest part of your so-
cial calendar becomes "game
Matthew Meltzer night," where you might even
Speaking Out invite over a few single friends
for a rousing game of Piction-
ary. Or if things get REALLY out of control, a "couples
vs. singles" game of beer pong. But the festivities won't
be lasting much past midnight, and your best case sce-
nario is a few minutes of drunk couple's sex where the
guy can't function and the girl can't move.
Meanwhile your single friends have used this as a
pre-party and won't be getting home until you are get-
ting up.
The highlight of your week will be watching playoff
hockey with a guy you vaguely know from work, just
so you can get out of the house. It's not that you like
hockey, or that your wife is even that bad. But when
you spend every hour of every day with someone, you
look for any, and I mean any, excuse to take a break. TV
and movies like to make marriage look like endless love
or complete misery.
But in reality, it is neither. It is a lot of monotony and
a lot of compromise, with a little resentment thrown in.
Or so I am told.
In your 20s, you still have so much to accomplish and
so much to experience, tying yourself to someone can
only lead to bad things. There'll always be other people,
but you only get one life.

Letters to the Editor
UF budget must include stimulus money
I know many of us are breathing a sigh
of relief because the worst of the budget
cuts facing the University of Florida a few
months ago have not come to pass. Unfor-
tunately, 67 people are still facing the pos-
sible loss of their jobs many of them are
the underappreciated staffers who keep the
school running.
Worse yet, many of them are facing that
unnecessarily. At last week's Faculty Senate
meeting, President Bernie Machen revealed
UF's budget for 2009-2010 and explained
that he felt he has to make cuts because the
budget from the state-used federal stimulus
money reflects dollars he is not sure he can
rely on in future years. However, the presi-
dent's plan is ignoring that there will be a
small increase in permanent dollars in the
coming years: increased tuition.
In 2009-2010, Machen reported tuition in-
creases will bring in $20 million more.
Additionally, in 2010-2011 there will be
about $6 to $8 million more even if the school
is unable to get any donations for need-
based financial aid (by state law 30 percent
of new tuition dollars, or the same amount


in donations, must go to financial aid).
Why can't the UF administration take
some of the nonreccurring stimulus dollars
to pay salaries this year until the new tuition
money arrives next year?
Surely that is preferable to laying off even
more already overworked staffers.

Florida legislators guilty of self-interest
The Florida Legislature's 2009 session
may be over, but it should not be quickly
forgotten.
From budget woes to the fall of indicted
former Speaker Ray Sansom, this year's ex-
tended session was one of the more memo-
rable in recent history.
Around here, it would be easy to think the
University of Florida's budget cuts were the
worst thing to be debated, but smart voters
will never forget a proposed bill equally as
unnerving as the so-called "election reform"
bill (HB 7149) that a group of self-interested
legislative leaders attempted to ram through


late in the session.
Touted as fraud reform, HB 7149 was
actually designed to make it more difficult
for Floridians to register and cast their vote.
Instead of promoting true election reform
to ensure that every voter and every vote
counts, this proposed legislation was noth-
ing more than a naked power grab.
We should all be thankful that a strong,
unified response from civil rights and elec-
tion protection groups, and an outpouring
of public opposition, ultimately thwarted
it. Supporters of the bill, including House
Speaker and Ocala Rep. Larry Cretul and
soon-to-be Senate President and UF lectur-
er Mike Haridopolos, made clear that they
value their self-interest ahead of the best in-
terests of Florida's voters. Haridopolos and
the majority leaders of both houses have al-
ready made it clear that they plan to attempt
a similar self-serving power grab next year.
Shame on them, and on all the legislators
in Tallahassee who supported this bill, for
trying to game our electoral system for their
benefit.

Ginnie Springs needs to go green
I camped at Ginnie Springs two week-
ends ago and, overall, I was satisfied with
my experience.
However, my friends and I were dis-
heartened that there were no recycling bins
on site. We were disturbed to observe many
campers and other visitors drinking and
throwing their beer cans throughout the
park and into the river.
The fact that Ginnie Springs is privately
owned would make me believe that a stron-
ger effort would be made to put a recycling
program in place, but the opposite seems to
be the case.
As far as the river, knowing that this is
public waterway, I find it unfortunate that
there has been so much disrespect that
seems to be condoned by a private entity
that profits tremendously from its access to
the river.
If Ginnie Springs wants its customers to
take its facility seriously as an "outdoor ad-
venture," it is critical that it take greater re-
sponsibility for its environmental impact.

Guest column

UF budget cuts reflect sound course of


During Tuesday's Board of Trustees meeting, I voted to
approve President Berie Machen's budget cut plan
because it puts UF in the best financial position going
forward and serves the interests of the entire student body as
well as it can during these trying economic times.
The first reason is that President Machen went about these
cuts in the most respectful and efficient way possible. He
was in constant communication with all of the department
heads and engaged the Faculty Senate, as well as kept the
student body informed at all times. I met with President Ma-
chen numerous times before I was convinced of this plan and
know that this plan was constructed with our best interests
in mind.
President Machen did a great job putting off as many cuts
as he could before he had to cut people, and this is the end
result of that mentality.
Another important reason is that these policies let us plan
for the future and remain flexible. Some essential measures in


this plan include as few cuts to staff
and faculty as possible, the elimina-
tion of minimal full programs and the
postponement of $11.5 million that
will be cut in the fall to give time to
adjust for any possible market fluctu-
Jordan Johnson ations. I personally lobbied for these
Speaking Out policies because if we were to use all
of our federal stimulus dollars right
off the bat to extend layoffs in hopes
for better times, we would be doing a disservice to students.
These policies leave UF in a safer place, economically
speaking.
The combined revenue of these policies, as well as the cut-
ting of vacant positions and the elimination of non-personnel
lines like travel and conferences, will make up for the budget
shortfalls while protecting as much the value of every stu-
dent's education as much as possible. We have to do the best


action for students
we can with what we have and this plan does just that. Obvi-
ously we would want to keep some of these programs and
staff, but the path this agreement sets out for us delays layoffs
as long as we can while still retaining the tools we need to
achieve the goals of this great university.
The way we handle these budget cuts will be one of the
most important issues our university and my administration
will face over the next year. Just as President Machen asked
for any ideas or plans to help us deal with this issue, I ask for
the same from my colleagues and from the students at UF. We
will need the combined force of all of our resources to make
sure that we go forward from this in a way that retains our
status as a world-class, higher education institution.
I know that we can overcome these troubles with the
wealth of knowledge that we possess as a group and look for-
ward to working with anyone with ideas to offer; students,
faculty, and everyone in between.
Jordan Johnson is the Student Body President.

Board of Trustees confirms $42.2M budget cut plan


* $11.6M IN CUTS STILL
MUST BE ALLOCATED.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

UF's Board of Trustees, the uni-
versity's highest governing body,
voted unanimously to approve $42.2
million in budget cuts Tuesday.
But UF Provost Joe Glover said
after the meeting that students may
not feel the effect on class sizes and
offerings until two years from now,


when the federal stimulus money
being used to cover some of the cuts
runs out.
The trustees approved the plan
presented to them by UF President
Bemie Machen. The same plan was
sent to the UF community Friday.
The plan includes $30.6 million in
specific cuts and $11.6 million in un-
specified cuts.
The total cut is about 6 percent
of UF's $700 million state-allocated
budget, said UF's Chief Financial
Officer Matt Fajack, which is smaller
than the 10 percent worst-case-sce-
nario cut UF was preparing for.


Four faculty and 49 staff are slat-
ed to be laid off under the plan, in
addition to about 150 positions that
will be eliminated. These positions
are vacant, will be vacant due to re-
tirement or are held by
On temporary employees
Campus whose contracts will
not be renewed.
Machen will update
the Board on the progress of finding
ways to cut the remaining $11.6 mil-
lion from UF's budget by Oct. 31.
Machen also has until June 30 to
consider alternate budget cut pro-
posals from administrators. After


the meeting, Machen said he expects
some changes before the final bud-
get is implemented.
"I think we're gonna have some
additional conversations with sev-
eral units," he said. "I think in IFAS
(the Institute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences) is where you'll see a
significant amount of change," he
said.
IFAS, which includes the College
of Agricultural and Life Sciences,
will take a $7.7 million cut, the larg-
est of any unit at UF. Twenty-three
layoffs, in addition to 82 position
eliminations, are planned.


Glover said after the meeting that
when stimulus money runs out, it's
possible fewer students will be able
to sign up for classes, class sizes
might become bigger or that stu-
dents will have a smaller selection
of classes.
"It remains to be seen in two years
how we manage this problem if the
state hasn't recovered," he said.
The impact of the cuts on UF's
research is harder to determine, he
said, but eliminating about 150 posi-
tions will inevitably have an effect.
"That's a substantial hit to the
university's research," he said.


STUDENT GOVERNMENT

SG unanimously approves Chomp the Vote director


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer


Student senators were able to find com-
mon ground during Tuesday's Senate meet-
ing after two weeks of fighting and many
displays of partisanship.
Beacause there are still many open Senate
seats and senators approved recommenda-
tions for committees during the meeting, no
new legislation was presented.
However, Student Body President Jordan
Johnson stopped by to get the approval for
his nominations of two Student Government
agency directors, Chomp the Vote and Night-


life Navigators.
Law student Jenna Stem was approved
unanimously to take over as the director for
Chomp the Vote, an organization in charge of
educating, registering and encouraging stu-
dents to vote in local and national elections.
Johnson said he wanted to find someone
with a grassroots personality and who was
self-motivated.
Stern was a candidate for Senate during
the spring election and represented the Or-
ange and Blue Party. She also helped mo-
bilize UF's Barack Obama campaign and is
currently in California working on another
campaign.


Law student Philip Erwin was also ap-
proved unanimously to take over as the
Nightlife Navigator director, a position John-
son said he'd considered
eliminating.
This agency is in charge
of promoting safe trans-
portation solutions for stu-
dents who are out drink-
ing.
Johnson said Erwin will
Ossip act as a middle man be-
tween students and club or
bar owners, educating students on their op-
tions when leaving a club after drinking.


Johnson said he is also looking into acquir-
ing a Zingo service to prevent drunken driv-
ing. The Zingo driver rides a scooter, folds
the scooter into the person's trunk and drives
the customer home in his or her own car.
The program is used by the University of
Georgia and the University of North Carolina
Chapel Hill.
Before senators approved Johnson's nomi-
nations, he lauded UF President Bemie Ma-
chen's decision on how to allocate $42.2 mil-
lion in budget cuts.
"We have to do the best we can with what
we have, and I believe this plan does just
that," Johnson wrote in a press release.

"I had a leak that lasted for four years,"
Bryant said. "It was wood rot."
However, Bryant felt that the more than 50
units at Seminary Lane were habitable, despite
uneven floors and lack of insulation.
"I think we could live with that," he said.
But after five years of debt, the organiza-
tion that owned the project decided not to re-

which expires this month.
"We decided to take these buildings down

ing distance to everything."
The subsidized housing is located several
blocks north of the UF campus.
"More student housing is too much," said
City Commissioner and UF Assistant Vice
President of Student Affairs Jeanna Mastrodi-
casa. "Student housing people will say it's
a bad idea because they have trouble filling
them already, that's why there's a very large
market."
Although Godley said that the site will not
be used for student housing, she is not sure
what will be built there once it is torn down.
"We're working in partnership with [the
Gainesville Housing Authority] and the City,"
she said.
However, there is no record of the organiza-
tion formally asking the city for assistance, ac-
cording to Bob Woods, the City of Gainesville
spokesman.
City commissioners Mastrodicasa and Jack
Donovan said that the organization declined
help that the city offered.
Many Seminary Lane residents, however,
are asking for help.
Bryant, his 19-year-old daughter and his


two grandchildren are not the only residents
who haven't found a place to live. Another
such resident is Lee Lopez, 35, Bryant said.
"She had three kids, and they put her out,
boarded up the house this morning," said
Masheria Mitchell, an 18-year-old Seminary
Lane resident.
Brittany Lopez, 20, came to
Local Seminary Lane from Arredondo
News Farms on Archer Road to look
for her mother and 13-, 3- and
2-year-old siblings.
"You see what they did," she said, pointing
at the boarded up house. "They threw all my
mom's shit out!"
Bryant said he saw the Gainesville Hous-
ing Authority put clothes on the porch that
morning.
Lopez did not qualify for a voucher be-
cause of the eviction, Brittany said.
Godley said that those with criminal re-
cords, substantial income or those who haven't
paid rent did not qualify for a voucher.
"They just need to help people," Lopez said
of the Gainesville Housing Authority.
Lorenzo Johnson, 50, questioned the Hous-


ing Authority's actions.
"How can you do that, put kids out? Look
at this weather," he said, motioning toward
the pouring rain. "Ain't no answer for that,
whether you pay rent or not."
According to Godley, Housing Authority
is doing a "stellar job" and has a list of places
for residents to go.
Donovan, however, thinks that they did a
less-than-stellar job.
"They did not handle it well," he said. "If
you're Housing Authority, your job is to get
people safely into housing and if you're not
doing that, you're not doing your job."
But Donovan also said that the blame
should not all be on Housing Authority.
"Housing authorities in general don't have
enough money for maintenance."
Still, Bryant, who has lived in Seminary
Lane for more than 20 years, feels that if they
are kicking them out, "they are supposed to
replace us."
Johnson wonders "who is going to help
these people if Housing is not?"
Gainesville Housing Authority could not
be contacted for comment.

to the GPD headquarters to see if he
could help resolve the situation, but
was unable to get any information
about the case.
"At this point we're just trying to
figure out how to get him out," Shil-
lington said.
Castro was released later that
night without bail on the condition
that he'll have no contact with The
Top and that he won't possess spray
paint.
He was also given a curfew from
10 p.m. to 7 a.m.
Shillington said he liked Castro's
tribute to Bernard and would not
remove it.
"We're gonna leave it up as a
memorial," he said. "It's actually a
really beautiful screen print of the
guy."
He said although he didn't know
Bernard personally, he recognized
him as someone who regularly pa-


tronized The Top.
"He seemed like he was a really
sweet guy, and it's just a tragic situ-
ation," he said.
Aurora Brink, manager of Amer-
ican Apparel, said on Wednesday
that Castro came by that day to
remove the mural of Bernard and
apologize.
Brink said she wished she could
have kept it up, or put up something
of her own, but it goes against com-
pany policy.
She said there are other ways to
memorialize Bernard, adding that
everyone who works at the store
was good friends with him.
"We were lucky to have known
Barry for so long," she said.
Castro said Sharab Lounge,
where he bartends, will hold a si-
lent auction Thursday night to help
pay for Bernard's funeral and to pay
for his parents to fly from Haiti to
Gainesville.

12, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 28, 2009


With two BCS
national football titles in
three years, it's unsurpris-
/f ing that Gainesville's greatest
sin is pride. But according to a research group, the sin
f means the college town exhibits diverse debaucheries.
Geographers from Kansas State University mapped
the seven biblical sins county-by-county across the U.S., re-
S vealing that Alachua is one of the most prideful counties in
yf Florida.
Pride, the deadliest sin according to some, is mapped by
combining the data from Envy, Wrath, Lust, Gluttony, Sloth
f and Greed, each of which is determined by a separate statistic,
or group of statistics. Researchers split each sin into five levels of
intensity, and when mapped, the darkest is the most sinful, said
Mitchel Stimers, co-author of the project.
In Alachua, Lust registered at the highest level of sinfulness, Envy,
Wrath and Sloth reached the second highest, Greed placed in the mid-
dle level and Gluttony finished at the second lowest level.
Consistently high rates of sin pushed Alachua into the top 14 most
prideful counties in Florida, even though it only ranked at the highest
level in one of the six substantiating sins, Stimers said.
Jacob Larson, associate pastor at Vineyard Church of Gainesville, was
surprised when he found out Alachua was high up on the scale of pride.
"I guess we have the Gator Nation here," Larson said. "And we're very
proud to be Gators."
However, it's worth having the pride that develops a sense of individual-
ism and pushes people to give back to humanity, he said.
"It's giving credit where credit is due," Larson said.
The dangerous part is when pride starts to dehumanize, he said.
"If you choose to love yourself more than anyone else you.... commit atroc-
ities to another person because you love yourself that much," he said. "The
self-love begins to kill you eventually."
Envy was tied to the number of thefts per capita.
Although the crime rate decreased in Alachua by 3.3 percent from 2007 to
2008, larceny has seen a slight increase in the same period, according to Art
Forgey, public information officer for Alachua County Sheriff's Office.
Some of the crime statistics can be blamed on the worsened economy be-
cause people often become desperate under financial stress, he said Alachua's
large student population might also explain some larceny cases, he said.
The start of the school year shows a noticeable increase in robberies. Scoot-
ers, cars and other personal belongings are often stolen from students.
"Many students tend to leave their cars and apartments unlocked," he
said. "For most of them it's their first time on their own."
Wrath was plotted by the number of violent crimes per capita.
Cities tend to have higher crime rates. But demographics and popula-
tion size are very important when comparing data among counties, ac-
cording to Steve Maynard,
Alachua County Sheriff's
Office spokesman.



iHt4 )


"It's
a very tough
question," he
said. "In compari-
son with huge counties
like Broward our crime rate is
probably relatively low."
He doesn't believe UF con-
tributes to the number of violent
crimes. Common crimes, such as
bike theft and underage alcohol
consumption, are more preva-
lent among students, he said.
The number of violent offens-
es in Alachua, which include
rape, assault, threats and stalk-
ing, increased by 6.2 percent
between 2007 and 2008, accord-
ing to the Uniform Crime Report
Domestic Violence Data for Alachua
County. Stalking and threats made a
large part of the increase.
For Lust, researchers used the number
of sexually transmitted diseases per capita.
One reason for Alachua's high rate of STDs
could be the younger population, according to
George Gibbs, regional program manager for the
Alachua County Health Department.
The most common sexually transmitted diseases
in Alachua are gonorrhea and Chlamydia, which are
largely carried by people between 15 and 24 year old.
Gluttony was determined by fast food restaurants per
capita. Alachua's low score on the Gluttony scale could be be-
cause Gainesville is one of the 25 most educated cities in U.S.,
according to Roland Loog, director of Visit Gainesville, which
provides visitor information. Knowledge generally leads to higher income,
and Loog believes educated populations shop for healthier food, he said.
Greed was measured by comparing the ratio between average income
per capita and the number of individuals below poverty line. A higher
ratio meant there is greater separation between social classes.
Stimers has received some criticism over his team's choice of sta-
tistics, particularly those tied to Gluttony and Sloth.
Originally, as shown in the maps, Sloth was determined by a com-
parison of money spent on arts, entertainment and recreation against
unemployment rates.
Under pressure to have the presentation ready for a geographers'
conference in mid-March, the research team had to choose data that
not only represented the sin but also was available for analysis,
Stimers said.
"You can think of an idea theoretically, but then you have
to get the scientific data for it," he said. "It's art as much
as science."
Stimers said the data is in the process of re-
evaluation with a focus on Gluttony and Sloth
because their distributions didn't show a
clear pattern on the maps. Gluttony will
be re-plotted with child obesity rates
and Sloth will be updated with
more detailed information on
expenditures from the U.S.
Census Bureau's 2007 r
Economic Census.

Colorful clothes can brighten gray days


REBEKAH GEIER + AVENUE WRITER
"Weather is a great metaphor for
life sometimes it's good, some-
times it's bad, and there's nothing
much you can do about it but carry
an umbrella."
Pepper Giardino probably uttered
this often-quoted phrase long before
multicolored rain boots and custom-
print umbrellas hit the scene. Nowa-
days, there's a lot you can do about
a rainy situation. And better yet, you
can do it with style.
For one reason or another, people
tend to assume that gloomy skies
require gloomy attire. At UF, this is
rarely the case. Walking around cam-
pus on a rainy day is almost like go-
ing to an art festival.
Boots and umbrellas act like can-
vases that display patterns from
zebra prints to polka dot, flowers to
skulls it's all stretched across those
rambunctious rubber boots. Students
bustle across the wet ground shel-
tered by a canopy of umbrellas, each


its own work of art florals, stripes,
paisleys, Monet's they're all cov-
ered.
The parade of candy-colored rain
gear is enough to have anyone look-
ing forward to the next thunder-
storm.
But still some people insist on
wearing the gloomy weather on their
sleeves, with baggy
Avenue sweats and clunky
StyleS sneakers, when
there's really no
need for the clothing
to reflect the atmosphere. It's fun and
easy to stay stylish even on the drea-
riest days.
With weather this blue your out-
fit should be a way of changing the
mood.
UF business and advertising stu-
dent, Amanda Freilich knows this.
Despite the wet streets, she sports
an outfit that defines fashion-meets-
function. With an American Apparel
hoodie, leggings and Converse, she
stays cute and comfortable.


To cop her look, pick up an um-
brella with a playful pattern, (Freil-
ich found hers at Publix), and wear
it with neutral-colored clothing that
have some colors found in the um-
brella's design. Leggings are perfect
for the rain; they avoid the heavy
drag of wet jeans.
Finally, slip on closed-toe shoes,
like Sperry Top-Siders, sneakers or
flats, so that your feet don't get cold.
If wild-patterned boots or um-
brellas can't be found in your closet,
don't fret. You can still turn heads by
borrowing a color from the rainbow.
Bright clothes don't only stand out
against the natural gray backdrop,
but the color also provides confidence
that will help brighten your day.
The fashion forecast for the rest of
the summer is sure to include more
outrageous rain gear to get you ex-
cited for the next drizzly day. But be
sure to always have your foldable
umbrella, because summer weather
can be just as spontaneous as you
are.

'Slumdog' filmmakers meet kid stars


MUMBAI, India (AP) The mak-
ers of "Slumdog Millionaire" met the
film's two impoverished child stars on
Wednesday and reassured them they
will soon have new homes. But the fa-
ther of one of the children stormed out,
saying the filmmakers have not done
enough to help.
Rubina Ali, 9, and Azharuddin
Mohammed Ismail, 10, both lost their
homes this month after city authori-
ties demolished parts of their slum in
Mumbai. Rubina has been staying with
relatives and Azhar has been living in a
makeshift shanty of tarps and blankets
with his parents.
"We've been trying for a long time
to move them into legal accommoda-
tion," director Danny Boyle told report-
ers at the Tata Institute of Social Scienc-
es on the outskirts of Mumbai, where
he and producer Christian Colson met
the children and their families.
Relations between the filmmakers


and the children's families have grown
tense since the phenomenal success of
the film, which grossed more than $326
million.
The filmmakers set up a trust aimed
at ensuring the children get proper
homes, a decent ed-
ucation, a monthly
stipend and a nest
egg when they fin-
ish high school. They
have pledged to
spend up to $100,000
to buy the two fami-
Ali lies new apartments
and have donated
$747,500 to a charity to help slum chil-
dren across Mumbai.
Colson has described the trust as
substantial, but will not tell anyone
how much it contains not even the
children's parents for fear of making
the youngsters vulnerable to exploita-
tion.


Nirja Mattoo, who helps oversee the
children's trust, said a new home has
been found for Azhar's family near to
his school and neighborhood. "We are
finalizing the deal. Next week it should
be done," she said.
The hunt for Rubina's house contin-
ues, she added.
But Rafiq Qureshi, Rubina's father,
said Boyle has not done enough.
"It's no big deal for them, this kind
of money. It's been five or six months
we've been living in such difficulty.
They should help us," he said in an in-
terview after he cut the meeting short
in anger.
"After the Oscars they forgot about
us," he added. "For two months we
didn't get any money."
Mattoo declined to comment on
Qureshi's behavior.
"We're trying our best to get it (a
house) as soon as possible," she said by
phone.

Chris Brown says


he's 'not a monster'

NEW YORK (AP) Chris Brown tells his fans he's
"not a monster" in a video posted on YouTube.
In it, the 20-year-old singer leans in and speaks di-
rectly into the camera, which appears to be positioned
in front of a bowling lane. He talks about his new al-
bum called "Graffiti," and a single expected this sum-
mer.
Then he says: "Everybody that's haters, they just
been haters. All my real fans, I love you. I ain't a mon-
ster."
Brown, who's been charged with felony assault
and making criminal threats against Rihanna on the
night of the Grammy Awards in February, did not
mention his former girlfriend.
It's not immediately clear when the video was shot.
A publicist for Brown didn't immediately respond to
a request for comment Wednesday.

SMake time for shoulder rubs, squeezes and kisses


ANNIE ANTHONY + AVENUE WRITER
0 Maybe it's due to the recession, but when
it comes to sex, comers are being cut.
Full-body massages have been down-
sized to shoulder rubs, dry humping has
filed for bankruptcy and you can't find de-
Scent oral anywhere.
After a long day at work or in class, all I
want is some good sex. I can feel the stress
0 build up, but after a slew of sexual medioc-
rity my sexual urge has been doused. I need
greatness in my life.
Good sex is more than just the insertion
of a penis into a vagina. Sex is like a magic


stew, it's about giving and taking, using the
right amount of creativity, with the correct
dose of spontaneity and an overflow of pas-
sion to produce a recipe you'll love.
After a little introspection on past experi-
ences, I realized that my top three sexual en-
counters were memorable because of amaz-
ing foreplay. Not necessarily hot-body oils
and tantric massages, but mental foreplay,
in addition to soft kisses, tight squeezes and
passionate nibbles.
It is well known that foreplay is the "Yel-
low Brick Road" to orgasm. And if we're on
the same ride then great sex is the desti-
nation.


So, why isn't everyone anxious to bring
out the whips and chains, suck toes or lick
the chocolate syrup off of normally con-
cealed body parts?
The answer: Time. According to the
most recent Durex survey, the average cou-
ple spent 20 minutes engaging in foreplay.
Well, I guess I'm way below average
then. Twenty minutes already my little
head is calculating. I don't have time for
that. If I wanted to be proactive, I guess I
could schedule an hour for sex into the
Blackberry before work, in between study-
ing or during my break. But that's a little
excessive.


What I'm saying is that it gets easy to
get caught up, but foreplay (like sex) gives
the bodies a chance to release, unite and ex-
plore. Sex is amazing when done correctly,
and it shouldn't be cheapened with half-ass
foreplay tactics. It gets easy for two people
to get stuck in a repetitive sexual rut, but
there's a way out.
Relax and use every minute necessary
to get to orgasm number one...two...or
three.... Because what else would you rath-
er be doing than having great sex? Nothing.
So, let the clothes slide off and enjoy your
life you owe yourself.

Local video store lassoes in customers with indie flicks

been storing in his house.
"When I opened it, I didn't
have any sense of a business plan,"
Beebe said. "I didn't know if we
would be able to pay the bills."
Now, almost five years later,
the store has more than 4,000 reg-
istered customers and about 5,000
videos.
Not only does the store run suc-
cessfully without a business plan,
it also runs without management
as an employment cooperative,
where every employee owns an
equal share of the business.
The employees meet monthly
to decide what new movies they
will order, and who deserves a
bonus for doing extra work like
hanging fliers around town.
Unlike other movie rental


stores, Beebe said the staff adver-
tises as little as possible to save
money to buy new DVDs for the
store.
What little advertising strategy
Video Rodeo has consists of mak-
ing fliers which are mainly aimed
at "sticking it to 'The Man.'"
On Video Rodeo's Web site,
the staff advertises its popular fish
bowl full of shredded Blockbuster
cards. Anyone who cuts up his or
her card in the store receives a dis-
counted video rental.
Although larger corporate
stores often order every video re-
leased in theaters, Video Rodeo is
more discerning.
Which ever video the store's
staff likes is what it orders, said
Allison Bittiker, a Video Rodeo
employee.
"Sometimes I feel like I have
seen all of the movies in the store,"
Bittiker said laughing. "I don't
know exactly how many I've seen;
we have over 5,000 rentals, and I
have seen almost half."
With three-day rentals for $3 a
video, the store may become even
more popular in the community,
especially with the current econo-
my, she said.
Katie David, a regular custom-
er, said she loves that the store is
not a huge corporation. She also
enjoys its selection of foreign films
and documentaries.

Watching quirky movies helps mother and son to bond


ERIK VOSS + AVENUE WRITER
For me, there's nobetter way to spend those
long, summer afternoons than with a matinee.
Especially when mom's paying.
When I was filling out a Mother's Day card
a few weeks ago, I realized that some of the
best moments I've shared with my mother
have been in empty movie theaters on sum-
mer afternoons. Since I was little, my mom
would lure me out of the house to see a movie
- a subtle tactic to get to know me better.
I wasn't the teenager who revealed his emo-
tions in Sharpie ink on his forearm, so these
cinema outings were, for her, a good way to
make sure her son wasn't a psychopath.
It was a challenge. One week I'd want to see


"Pokemon: The Movie," and the next I'd be in
a "Moulin Rouge" mood. It's not easy finding
a pattern between two movies that have noth-
ing in common besides colorful visuals and
killer soundtracks.
But mom was "Pleasantville
always sweet about as a movie fee
giving in to the shal- pleasuring herself
low interests of a bar there it is, pro
teenager. Not many screen, while my m
mothers could sit handful of Bun
through three hours
of subtitles during
"Godzilla 2000," which turned out to have
nothing to do with the awesome 1998 "Godzil-
la" with Matthew Broderick. Not many moth-
ers would sit through that "Godzilla," either.

it

Cr


What began as a bonding moment be-
tween mother and son transformed into an
experiment of Oedipal tensions whenever sex-
ual scenes would appear on screen. I'd mutter
something like, "Here
wasn't marketed we go" or "Really?" as
during a housewife if I was as morally out-
a bathtub, but raged by Kate Winslet's
;cted on a 30-foot breasts as I assumed my
her offered me a mother was. In reality,
unch. our thoughts were more
like:
Me: "Boobs!"
Mom: "He's probably thinking, 'Boobs!'"
And while I predicted the awkwardness
of movies like "Charlie's Angels," other times
it snuck up on me. "Pleasantville" wasn't


marketed as a movie featuring a housewife
pleasuring herself in a bathtub, but bam -
there it is, projected on a 30-foot screen, while
my mother offered me a handful of Buncha
Crunch.
But despite it all, I cherish those moments.
My mother and I may have been the only two
people who saw "K-PAX."
I doubt even Kevin Spacey took his mother
to see that.
So this summer, when you're seeing
"Harry Potter and the Books People Re-
placed with Twilight" or "Transformers:
Toys Blow Up More Stuff" consider taking
mom along.
Otherwise you might have to actually have
a conversation or something.

By KARINA GALVEZ
Summer is synonymous with bicycle races and
fun on two wheels. The tour de France being one
of the most famous bike races, may not be the
most fun or the easiest race to enter.
Alley Cats, a generic term for inner-city bike
races, are designed with the bike messenger in
mind get to as many locations around town
in as little time as possible. The races, held lo-
cally and around the country, are designed like
a scavenger hunt where the racers must pass
checkpoints on a manifest given to each racer at
the beginning of the event.
Gainesville's growing bike community has
been participating in local Alley Cat races for
more than a year, with races sponsored by local
bike shops.


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff


Participants race to checkpoints


Jacob Adams, manager of Spin Cycle on
West University Avenue, has organized
three races since April.
He said it usually takes about a month
to plan the manifest accordingly with the
theme of the race and to get the sponsors
and volunteers ready for the event.
"Part of the fun of the race comes from
not knowing the course until you receive
the manifest," said Adams as he explained
why he does not race in the events he or-
ganizes.
In the planning period, Adams also
advertises for the event with posters and
fliers locally and by posting the event on
www.flfixed.com, a bicycle forum for cy-
clists on fixed-gear bikes*.
He also designs the spoke cards** used
during the race.
"A lot of people keep them as a me-
mento to show they've participated in the
event," said Adams.
The race he is preparing for now, the
Postman's Calling Alley Cat on May 30, is
themed after the 1997 Kevin Costner film,
"The Postman." The manifest will include
the four local post offices in Gainesville.
Each post office will clue bikers as to where
their next location should be.
Using a similar concept, the Easter Cat,
held on the weekend of April 12, required
racers to get off their bikes at each loca-

tion and find an Easter egg with their next
clue.


The scavenger hunt feel and the sense of
community among the cyclists in the Alley
Cat races allow racers to see the race as fun
rather than purely competitive.
"They aren't so much about the compe-
tition so much as the community of like-
minded cyclists getting together and having
a good time," said Michael Pedron, board
member of The Kickstand, Gainesville's
Community Bike Project. "The fun happens
before and after the races."
Participants are encouraged to dress in
costume according to the theme of the race
and stay after the races for parties hosted by
the sponsors.
For the race on Saturday, participants in
costume will be eligible to enter both a cos-
tume contest and the race itself.
For the Easter race, Adams dressed as the
Easter bunny for the race, and for another
race he participated in, him he and Dave
Vollbach, also an employee at Spin Cycle,
rode tandem*** in neckties without shirts.
"At all bike races, there is a very fun at-
mosphere, but Alley Cats is the most fun,"
said Vollbach. "It's just a bunch of people
having a good time. You can race hard and
you can still have a good time. It's all about
the attitude."



In the spirit o competition, Vollbach
was stopped by a police officer for weav-
ing through traffic and running through a
red light.
"He asked me if it was worth it to risk
my life for a race," he said. "I answered, 'I
don't know, it's still early.'"
Vollbach's desire to quickly resolve his
confrontation with the officer landed him
in the back seat of the officer's patrol car,
handcuffed, for 15 minutes before he was
allowed back on the course.
He finished in 18th place, a feat which he
is still proud of.
The races are held on the open streets of

Gainesville, leaving the decision of wheth-
er or not to follow safe traffic laws up to
the racers.
"The races are informal, but it's not the
kind of thing I'd encourage kids to do,"
said Vollbach. There's no permission on the
road to hold these races, the roads are still
working. The races are more of a party at-
mosphere than a family one."


The entry fee to participate in Saturday's
30 race is $5 and a non-perishable food item
which will be donated to the Bread of the
Mighty food bank. The food bank will be
among the stops on the manifest and the
racers will drop off their food item during
the race.
Spin Cycle has also been working with
Mother Earth Market by collecting food
items all week for the event.
This is the first time Spin Cycle worked
with a charity during their races, but Ad-
ams said the volunteers who work each race
play an important role in the event because
the profits from each race are minimal.


Registration for the Postman's Calling
race will begin at 3 p.m. The race will start
in front of Spin Cycle at 4 p.m., and a party
with live bands, DJs and food will follow af-
ter the race at the bike shop.
Adams plans on sponsoring a bike race
every month of the summer. His biggest
project is the Labor Day weekend race, dur-
ing which he hopes to hold events every day
of the weekend.
"I really enjoy Alley Cat racing because
they are more fun oriented than ordinary rac-
ing. You don't have to worry about having the
right bike or the right clothes," he said. "Part
of what we're doing with Alley Cat racing is
making people aware that there's a lot going
on in Gainesville as far as cycling."


SFixed-gear: Single speed bice without a
freewheel mechanism, meaning the cyclist
must pedal constantly.

bicycle spokes; designs depict the race's theme.

UF BASEBALL

No. 11 Gators start


NCAA Tournament


Harrison Diamond/Alligator Staff
The UF baseball team begins NCAA Tournament play Friday when it hosts a Regional including Miami,
Jacksonville and Bethune-Cookman. The Gators were swept by the Hurricanes earlier this season.


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

The Road to Omaha begins in
Gainesville.
No. 11 UF (39-20), winners of
the No. 8 national seed, will begin
its quest for a College World Series
berth this weekend when it hosts
a NCAA Regional that includes
Miami, Jacksonville and Bethune-
Cookman.
The Hurricanes (36-20) will
open the action Friday with a 1 p.m.
matchup with the Dolphins. The
Gators will begin their NCAA play
at 6:30 p.m. against the Wildcats.
The winners of Friday's games will
meet at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, and the
losers will meet at 1 p.m.
"We are very excited for the
start of Regional play," coach Kev-
in O'Sullivan said.
Bethune-Cookman will send
right-hander Hiram Burgos (6-3,
3.73 ERA) to the mound while the
Gators have yet to announce their


starter for Friday night's opener.
UF will hope to improve upon
its recent failures in the postseason.
In the two years under O'Sullivan,
the Gators are 1-6 in Southeast-
ern Conference Tournament and
NCAA Tournament play.
Last year UF went to Tallahassee
for its Regional and was promptly
sent home with two straight losses
to Tulane and Florida State.
Playing at McKethan Stadium
should provide a boost for the
Gators. UF is 27-7 at home this
season, and the last time it hosted a
regional was 2005 when UF swept
the Regional and Super Regional
rounds in Gainesville en route to
a CWS berth Overall, UF is 22-7 at
home in NCAA play.
UF's national seed means the
Gators would host a Super Regional
if they advance past this weekend.
The weekend's biggest challenge
would seem to be the Hurricanes
who swept the Gators in a three-
game series in Gainesville on Feb.
27 March 1.


Track heads to Regional


* THE WOMEN'S TEAM JUMPED TO
NO. 16 IN THE POLLS.

By JESSICA ETTER
Alligator Writer

After the then-unranked UF women's
track and field team won the Southeast-
ern Conference Outdoor Championships
nearly two weeks ago, its focus shifted
from an SEC title to an NCAA title.
The men's and women's track and
field teams are traveling to Greensboro,
N.C., to participate in the 2009 NCAA
East Regional this weekend.
According to the U.S. Track and Field

After a nightmarish first day, the

only improve their position on the lead-

The No. 6 UF men's golf team still
finds itself in 25th place with a score

round of the NCAA Championships in

Despite the team's score of 26 over

fared a lot better on Wednesday and
shot 3 over par for the round.
"We've played poorly and even
though today was a little better, we
haven't played well enough to give our-

UF might have dug too deep of a hole
in the first round for it to come back.
"It was an incredibly disappointing
day and a day we might not be able to
recover from," Alexander said.

Gators open WCWS play against storied Wildcats


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

Despite being the top-ranked
team in the country for the last 10
weeks and sweeping their way


through early postseason play, coach
Tim Walton and his team are adopt-
ing the mentality of an underdog.
No. 1 UF (60-3) will continue its
quest for the program's first national
title tonight at 9 against No. 9 Ari-
zona (46-15) in the first round of the


Women's College World Series in
ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Okla-
homa City.
The Wildcats are one of the most
storied programs in college softball,
having made it to the WCWS 21 out
of the last 22 years.


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
The top-seeded UF softball team will face ninth-seeded Arizona tonight in the Gators' opening game of
the Women's College World Series. The Wildcats have made it to the WCWS 21 of the last 22 years.


Arizona first baseman Sam Ban-
nister said her team was taking the
role of underdog in stride despite its
successful history and the fact that
she would not have given the Wild-
cats that title in the first place.
Given the fact that anything can
happen once the tournament starts
- every team is now effectively
0-0 Walton was quick to point
out that his team's successful season
does not provide it with any discern-
ible advantage.
"Facing Arizona in the first
round, I'll go with the opposite of
what Sam said and say that we're
the underdog," Walton said. "They
have won more national champion-
ship games here than we ever have
at this stage. Our kids are embracing
that role, and we have to do a good
job at staying focused and staying
grounded."
A team as consistently on top of
the college softball world like Ari-
zona could negate the edge UF has
in terms of its experience and famil-
iarity with the WCWS, both luxuries
the Gators did not have last year.
"I feel like our team has a little
bit more experience coming back
for a second year," catcher Kristina
Hilberth said. "Obviously playing a
team like Arizona, who has a lot of
experience, in the first round, we're
going to have to battle it out."
Ever since their loss to Texas
A&M in the semifinals of last year's
WCWS, the Gators have been look-


ing forward to the final tournament
of the season. It's no secret that UF
set out to win a national champion-
ship after getting a taste of postsea-
son success last season.
But after winning the NCAA
Super Regional in Gainesville last
weekend, Hilberth said the team
still has the same mindset it has had
all year: Every team will give the
Gators its best shot,
so they cannot look
past anyone.
ftal "We're ready, but
Softball we're just going to
take it one game at a
time," Hilberth said. "We're excited
to get out to Oklahoma City, but you
can't win the whole thing until you
win the first game."
The competition between the
two teams will be indicative of a
larger conflict throughout this year's
WCWS.
The Pacific-10 Conference, usual-
ly the powerhouse conference, and
Southeastern Conference are repre-
sented by three teams each.
"I said a long time ago that
when the SEC got serious about
something, they were going to do it
right," Arizona coach Mike Candrea
said. "I think really when the SEC
got involved with women's college
softball, the parity kind of spread
much quicker, kind of like what
baseball experienced 20 years ago.
So it wasn't a surprise, it was just a
matter of time."


UF's wonderful story may not get fairy-tale ending


It appears this story deserves only
one ending. The plot seems so ap-
ropos.
That's what scares me about the
chances of the No. 1 UF softball team,
which begins play today at the Wom-
en's College World Series.
A year ago, the Gators entered
Oklahoma City as the top-seeded
team, but they were making their first-
ever appearance at the final dance. UF
dropped its first game against Loui-
siana-Lafayette, forcing the Gators to
fight their way back through the los-
ers' bracket.
They almost succeeded but ended
up a game short, falling 1-0 to Texas
A&M in 9 innings. It was UF's fourth
game in two days.
Even though this was a 70-5 team,
there was a feeling of just being hap-
py to be there. After all, the Gators
had been in unchartered territory
throughout 2008. So while the season
was a success, it left only one expecta-
tion for 2009: win a national title.
UF lost just one starter from last
year's squad right fielder Mary
Ratliff, who coincidentally is also
back for this run as the team's student
assistant coach.
Impressively, the team never shied
away from its goal for the season.
From day one, the Gators said only
one thing would be an acceptable out-
come for 2009, and that would include
hoisting a trophy out in the Midwest.
It's hard not to like this team for a
multitude of reasons. The storylines


are simply end-
less.
Stacey Nelson,
who leads the na-
tion with a 0.41
Phil Kegler ERA, is one of
Sthe most domi-
Phil on the Hill nant athletes on
pkegler@alligator.org
UF's campus but
refuses to get
sucked up into the hype of athletics.
Hours before Sunday's Super Re-
gional against California, where she
would single-handedly lead her team
to its second straight WCWS appear-
ance, Nelson was beating her team-
mates in Scrabble, according to coach
Tim Walton.
She ranks No. 7 on the NCAA's all-
time wins list but yet she keeps track of
not a single record she owns.
"You don't replace those kids," Wal-
ton said. "This kid is one of the most
special kids you'll ever have a chance
to coach. There isn't a mean bone in
her body but yet she still competes."
And she is just one of a team full of
storylines. How about left fielder Fran-
cesca Enea who has tore her ACL twice
but is still playing through it? What
about Kelsey Bruder, the team's only
new starter from a year ago, who hap-
pens to be hitting .385 and sits second
on the team with 15 home runs?
But even though this team is 130-8
during the last two seasons, the 8 loss-
es tell much more about this team.
The combined margin of defeat in
those defeats? Nine runs.


Five of them were 1-0 defeats. Not
coincidentally, five of them also were
in extra innings.
Two of this year's losses came
against teams (Washington, Alabama)
that will be joining UF in Oklahoma
City. The Huskies defeated the Gators
1-0 in Palm Springs, Calif. on Feb. 20.
While that may seem like ages ago, the
key fact is that UF couldn't scratch out
a run against Washington pitcher Dan-
ielle Lawrie.
Lawrie won national player of the
year honors Tuesday, edging out Nel-
son.
If UF has any weakness, it has been
timely hitting. Despite the Gators'
gaudy record for the second straight
year, there is not overwhelming evi-
dence that this fault has been cor-
rected. If third-seeded Washington
and UF match up in the champion-
ship series, that may spell doom for
the Gators.
With seven seniors graduating,
there is no question that this is the
window of opportunity for UF. While
Walton is building a quality program
in Gainesville, players like Stacey
Nelson simply don't come around ev-
ery day. Next year will be comparable
to the football team in the post-Tim
Tebow era. Likely good but not quite
the same.
Now it's time to sit back and
watch. The story will finish over the
next week.
The only question is whether it will
have a happy ending or a sad one.


Nelson wins


CLASS award,


loses POY race

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

Senior pitcher Stacey Nelson received one of
college softball's most prestigious awards Tues-
day but fell short of earning another.
Nelson took home the Lowe's Senior CLASS
Award at the Party in the Park in Oklahoma
City, the opening event for the Women's Col-
lege World Series. The CLASS Award stands
for Celebrating Loyalty and
Achievement for Staying in
School and focuses not only
on the player's athletic ac-
complishments, but her work
in the classroom and commu-
nity as well.
No other UF athlete had
ever won the award.
Nelson "Just to be considered was
an honor, and to come out on top is something I
never dreamed of," Nelson said.
However, Nelson did not win the USA
Softball National Collegiate Player of the Year
Award, which went to Washington junior pitch-
er Danielle Lawrie. Lawrie, shut out the Gators
in a nine-inning, 1-0 win on Feb. 20, handing
Nelson, a top-three finalist for the award, and
UF one of their three losses on the year.

Women's College World Series Preview Editor Phil Kegler Cover photo Andrew Stanfill Alligator, Thursday, May 28, 2009 Only title will satisfy UF in '09 fter his team's historic, record-breaking season in 2008, UF coach Tim Walton said he didn't think any othereteam would ever win 70 games, which his squad did en route to a Women's College World Series semifinals loss. But he never said this year's team couldn't be even better. It would have been impossible for the 2009 Gators to rack up as many wins as they did last season, and it seemed unthinkable thricaltearcoldematch or improve upon a historical year like 2008. "We're definitely a lot deeper and a lot more experienced and probably a lotmore talented than we were last year," Walton said."Last year's team knew how to play and did some special things, but this year's team is starting to do a good job of being able to embrace that and could potentially even be better than we were before." Now, UF is back in Oklahoma City. Despite how little has changed between this year and last year, this is a different team with a different mission. The WCWS experience was brand new for UF in 2008, as it was the first time in school history the team had reached the final leg of the postseason run. The Gators now have the benefit of experience on their side, as all but three players have already played on college softball's biggest stage. K8elsyaBruder, the only new starter and the only unknown quantity before UF's first gae this year, has proven to be one of the surest things on the roster. The sophomoe has been dominant at the plate and the only consistent presence in the outfield all season. UF has responded to the challenge of being the No. 1 teamim the nation, a position it has now held for 10 straight weeks. 4 \ Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff UF sophomore Kelsey Bruder, left, is the Gators' only new starter from a year ago. The right fielder has stepped in after Mary Ratliff graduated and has excelled at the plate, hitting .385 with 15 home runs and 66 RBIs. Unlike last season, Walton has developed more depth at the plate and in the field. Junior Francesca Enea's preseason ACL tear, senior Kim Waleszonia's early season knee fracture and sophomore Tiffany DeFelice's on-again-off-again wrist injury allowed some players to step into starting roles. With the injuries behind them, a 12-deep group of hitters and Stacey Nelson in the pitching circle, the Gators are even better prepared for a national championship run than they were last year. It's easy to assume that remaining injuryfree is one of the most important aspects of having a successful season. If only it were that simple. The Gators only sustained one meaningful injury in their miracle run last year, but it came in the WCWS when DeFelice -the five-hole hitter -injured her left wrist. At the time, DeFelice was as hot as any hitter m the country. /0a But the injury didn't just cost UF one of its best hitters, it exposed a crack in the armor: The bench players were relatively inexperienced and untested. "We really didn't have any depth once you got past our starting nine," Walton said. "This year, we're going to go probably 10, 11 or 12 deep." This season, Walton made a noticeable attempt to get more of his players involved, even when everyone was healthy at the beginning of the season. Enea's torn ACL limited the number of innings she could play in the first month or so of play, but senior Brooke Johnson proved to be a more-than-capable left fielder and pinch runner whenever the need arose. Despite the injury, Enea jumped out as one of hottest hitters in the nation and still had the luxury of resting her knee late in games when the Gators had a big lead. UF center fielder Kim Waleszonia missed most of the season with a knee injury but returned in time for postseason play. TOP: UF pitcher Stacey Nelson, right, leads the nation with a 0.41 ERA and ranks second in victories (39) and shutouts (20). The senior pitched 12 shutout innings in the Gators' doubleheader sweep of California during Sunday's Super Regional.

I take tremendous pride in her," Ratliff said. "It makes me feel like they're a step better than we were last year. From UFcoach Tim Walton her being one step better, we'll see how much that pays off in the end." --edeA Ie I I e ..p1th a result of Waleszonia's injury, can now be used to mix things up even with Waleszonia back in the lineup. "Different people are going to be successful in different situations, and they've all gotten a chance to do that," said student coach Mary Ratliff, who started in right field last year. "Injuries are bad, but sometimes they're a blessing as well. We've definitely gotten the best out of those, and now at the end of the season, people are back and ready to go." Ratliff, Walton and the rest of the coaching staff have found themselves in an enjoyable predicament: How do they fill out a lineup card every game with as many options as they have? The Gators have 12 players batting above .250 and nine above .300. They have more power hitting than they know what to do with -even Paculba, the leadoff hitter, has nine home runs with a .626 slugging percentage. Shortstop Megan Bush, who usually bats seventh, has the numbers of a cleanup hitter: .338 batting average, 14 home runs, 43 RBIs and a .719 slugging percentage. "You can't pitch around anybody," Walton said. "You pitch around Ali (Gardiner) and Francesca's going to get you. You pitch around her, then Kelsey's going to get you. And it just keeps going on down the road. Just when you think you've got it, then Michelle sneaks a bunt or a double in there." Being forced to overcome the adversity has been a blessing in disguise for the Gators, but one of the most important additions to the lineup didn't come from an injury. Stepping In, Stepping Up Ratliff -the starting right fielder and only senior on last year's team -consistently provided clutch hits when her team needed them and brought the kind of leadership one would expect from a senior. But if you ask her, someone else probably should have been playing her position. "I tell (Walton) every day he looks dumb for not playing that Bruder kid last year," Ratliff said. "I expected her to have a really good year, but I don't think you can expect someone to come in and do what she's done." Last year, Bruder batted a meager .133, going 6 for45 with one homer,seven RBIs and 15 strikeouts. Ratliff described the 2008 Bruder as one-dimensional at the plate -a straight, dead-pull hitter. "Kelsey's done the same thing that all the great ones have done," Walton said. "You look at Francesca's freshman year and Stacey Nelson's freshman year and Kelsey Bruder's freshman year, and they learned how to play at this level. Kelsey's no excepIf Bruder's breakout season puts the Gators one step closer to the program's first national title, then it could be their experience that pushes them over the edge. Pressure is nothing new for UF. The Gators found themselves in a do-or-die situation against Virginia Tech in last year's WCWS. In a 0-0 game in the bottom of the seventh and UF one loss away from elimination, the Hokies loaded the bases with no outs. Nelson forced a double play and a groundout to preserve the shutout and force the game into extra innings, and the Gators prevailed in the ninth thanks to some clutchfhitting byGardiner, Enea and Ratliff. "The good thing about this team is that we've been through every scenario,"Walton said. "We've had our backs against the wall, bases loaded, no outs in the College World Series with the season on thelline. I don't think there's going to be a situation that they're not prepared for." UF has seen every team's best effort this season, as the team has been ranked No. Ilin the nation nearly all year. The pressure may have been too much in 2008 -and maybe even at the beginning of 2009, as the Gators dropped their third game of the year to Baylor. "Now, I think we're able to play as opposed to worrying about the expectations," Walton said. "Everybody coming into the season was a little bit fearful of the expectations. So we just worried about how to play, and the other stuff just kind of takes care of itself." Whenthe Gators once again step on to college softball's biggest stage, it will come after a season full of dealing with expectations. The presence of ESPN cameras won't have an effect on the team like it did last year although the players will likely still pay more attention to their hair and makeup than they would for non-televised games, as Enea said every player does before taking the field. "We're ready to go back, and that experience has paid off all season," Ratliff said. "We've had the advantage of being on TV before. We just kind of get in a process and play the game. Once the first pitch is thrown, you forget about those things. Last year's experience, I think, was key to this year's team." Whetherit was a learning experience or simply a tournament that last year's team wasn't capable of winning, UF has shored up its major flaws from 2008, added much-needed depth at the plate, added a talented young star and become the most experienced team in the field. Now, the Gators are five wins away from an astounding two-year record of 135-8 and achieving the goal theymade after the WCWS in 2008: bringing home the national championship in 2009.

You Decide. 111 THURSDAY, MAY 28, 2009 LOCAL Seminary Lane to close Friday By ROBERTA 0. ROBERTS Alligator Contributing Writer It was raining late Tuesday afternoon. Calvin Bryant, 66, sat on his porch with his 2-year-old grandson on his lap. "If Ileave I can't take them, where are they going to go until their mother gets situated?" Bryant said, referring to his 2-year-old grandson and 9-month-old granddaughter. Bryant lives in Seminary Lane Apartments, which will be closed by Friday. Residents have to move out before the subsidized housing project is closed down due to inadequate floor plans, development and management. The closure was announced earlier this year, and Bryant said that he still does not have a place to go. Bryant said that he qualified for a Section 8 voucher that would pay rent, but has yet to find anyone that will rent to him at voucher prices. He received the voucher a little more than two weeks ago. The public housing project, 1019 NW 5th Ave., is scheduled to be torn down on an unknown date. "Hopefully soon," said Karen Godley, vice chairman of Gainesville Florida Housing Corporation, Inc., the nonprofit organization that owns the complex. "The construction was not adequate in the very beginning," Godley said. "The repair issues cannot be fixed easily." Repair issues included uneven floors, lack of insulation and leaky roofs.

Castro, 22, is facing a felony charge of criminal mischief after being arrested early Tuesday morning while trying to spray-paint a memorial for his friend on the side of The Top restaurant in downtown Gainesville. A Gainesville Police Department officer noticed Castro spray-painting the words "RIP MUCH" in gold on the side of the building alongside a paper mural of his friend, Barry Bernard, the 25-year-old Gainesville man whose body was found Monday near the Matanzas Inlet in St. Johns County. Bernard was swimming with friends at Summer Haven Beach on Sunday afternoon when he lost his boogie board and was overtaken by the rough waves. Castro, wearing a black mask to hide his identity, stopped painting and walked away when he noticed the officer, according to a GPD incident report. After the officer caught up with him, Castro said he was trying to paint the words "RIP MUCH LOVE," the report stated. Castro also admitted to pasting a mural of his friend on one of the front windows of American Apparel, 15 SW 1st Ave., where Bernard worked for more than two years. Castro was arrested on one count of third degree felony criminal mischief, punishable by up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. In addition, because the alleged crime involved graffiti, it is possible Castro could face an addiCastro tional fine of $250, if it is his first conviction. He could also be required to perform at least 40 hours of community service. A co-owner of The Top and a manager of American Apparel both said they did not wish to press charges against Castro.

By KATIE EMMETS Alligator Staff Writer kennets@a Iligator org As of today, the Alachua County Sheriff's Office will pay $1,000 to citizens who provide information regarding any crime in Alachua County when a gun is used. ASO spokesman Steve Maynard said that considering some cases rack up a $50,000 budget before they are solved, the Gun Bounty Program will hopefully be more cost effective and take less time. "It will be completely anonymous," Maynard said. "We never have to see or talk to the callers face to face." To ensure anonymity, the caller will receive a PIN and the location of a local bank where he or she can collect the reward money. "A thousand dollars is a small expenditure to receive intelligence that will help us catch a robber or murderer," Maynard said. "It will be completely anonymous. We never have to see or talk to the callers face to face." Steve Maynard ASO spokesman The idea for the program came from Deputy Kathy Zedalis who saw a rise in violent crime and began researching how to stop it from climbing. Those with information about guns that would interest Crime Stoppers should contact 352-3727867. Crist signs legislation that makes zero-tolerance more tolerant TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -Gov. Charlie Crist has signed a bill that will make the zero-tolerance policies adopted by many Florida schools more tolerant. Crist signed the bill Wednesday. Children will no longer be arrested for insignificant violations such as petty theft, bringing plastic butter knives to school, drawing pictures of guns, throwing erasers or vandalizing property. The bill's sponsor, Jacksonville Republican Sen. Stephen Wise, has said it will save money and prevent kids from unfairly having criminal records. It also will require schools that allow corporal punishment to review their policies at public meetings every three years. The bill (SB 1540) passed the Senate 39-0 on April 29. The House passed it 119-0 two days later. -THE ASSOCIATED PRESS 70day FORECAST 2 OPINIONS 6 the AVENUE 13 CLASSIFIEDS CROSSWORD SPORTS 18 20 25 The UF baseball team begins NCAA Regional play tonight at McKethan Stadium against BethuneCookman.

THURSDAY, MAY 28, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 3 STUDENT LIFE Growl team wants student input to help decide acts By JESSICA CHAPMAN Alligator Contributing Writer For the first time in UF history, the Gator Nation will have a say in who entertains the thousands of orange-and-blue clad fans at Gator Growl. Unlike years past, UF students and Gainesville community members now have a chance to vote for their favorite musical acts and comedians to appear at the Oct. 24 event. Until Friday, voting will take place on campus at the Reitz Union and Turlington Plaza and also at Publix and Zaxby's. The musical performers on the ballot are Sugarland, ZZ Top, O.A.R. and Third Eye Blind, while comedian prospects include Darrell Hammond, Demetri Martin, Dana Carvey and Jimmy Fallon. The Growl production team is confident that they can match the students' decision monetarily, but whether the performers with most votes can make it depends on their schedule, said Growl spokesman Bryan Griffin. If they can't attend, the Growl team will ask the runners up to perform. Griffin said the production team felt that opening the voting to the public would be more appropriate than basing the decision on its own choice. "We want the Gator Nation to feel as deserving as the football team," Griffin said. In past years, the musicians and comedians for the show have been decided by "a more closed election process," Griffin said. He said the production team may extend voting until Tuesday or Wednesday if it receives positive feedback from the voters. "We want the Gator Nation to feel as deserving as the football team." Bryan Griffin Gator Growl spokesman Prior to the voting, a survey asked the public who it would like to perform at the 2009 show. While it was only scheduled to last two weeks beginning on April 20, the production team extended the suggestion survey until May 18, Griffin said. The committee has been trying to announce the voting to students by sending e-mails from the UF Listserv, but it has had technical difficulties. Although Growl is mostly funded by sponsorships that won't be received until fall, the committee was able to come up with a ballpark figure based on last year's budget. Because the production team could not determine the cost of potential performers, the committee was unable to offer voting until the sumer semester, Griffin said. He attributed the fact that many musicians don't determine their fall tour dates until the summer as another reason for the voting delay. The committee would have loved for the voting to take place in the spring, he said. "We are trying to make it as accessible as possible," Griffin said about the voting. Although an appearance at Growl 2009 has not been able to be confirmed as possible by any of the potential performers, the team does have a price estimate of what it can afford to pay them. The theme for Growl 2009 is "Legends of the Swamp," honoring the senior class that brought UF two national championship titles. Griffin said the Growl team is hoping to bring in former football players for the show. "It's exciting and kind of bittersweet to say goodbye to the Gators that led us to two national championships," Griffin said. "We want to honor some of the big names in the Gator Nation." SFC provost prepares for new position at NY college 0 KRESS WAS NAMED PRESIDENT OF MONROE COMMUNITY COLLEGE ON APRIL 27. By KATIE EMMETS Alligator Staff Writer Kemmets@a IIigator org After 10 years at Santa Fe College, Anne Kress will work her last day Friday before leaving to become the next president of Monroe Community College in Rochester, N.Y. On Wednesday, students, faculty and staff piled into the Alan J. Robertson Administration Building at SFC's main campus to give tearful goodbyes and share fond memories of Kress. "I enjoy watching you work," SFC President Jackson Sassar told Kress during the farewell party. Sassar said that although Kress' leaving will be a big loss for Santa Fe, he is excited for her future and referred to her as the best academic officer SFC has ever known. Kress joined the SFC staff in 1999 as an associate professor of English. Since then, she has earned titles such as English department chair, interim C &vice president and her current position of provost and vice president of academic Kress ^ affairs. One of 32 applicants, Kress was named a finalist for the position in March and was named president of Monroe Community College on April 27. While at SFC, Kress proposed the Title 3 Math Research Grant and led the process for awarding bachelor's degrees, Sassar said. The college will start its first two baccalaureate degree programs in the fall. Kress said the bachelor's degree was her last big activity at SFC, and it's what she would like to be remembered for. "SFC will always hold a special place in my heart," Kress said. "It is a wonderful asset to the community, and I am going to miss it so much." f12l &

4, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 28, 2009 ON CAMPUS Football complex recognized for sustainability effort By SARA WATSON Alligator Contributing Writer In a sea of orange and blue, UF can now add green and platinum to its athletic rainbow. The Heavener Football Complex, UF's most recent addition to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, received a platinum certification from the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating System. Of the nation's 130 platinumcertified buildings, the environmentally sound Heavener Complex is the first in Florida and the first athletic facility in the United States to receive platinum certification. "We're pretty excited about achieving platinum," said Carol Walker, the vice president of the UF Facilities, Planning and Construction Division, noting that the initial goal was to achieve silver certification. The $28 million building, funded by the University Athletic Association, has occupancy sensors to control lighting, organic carpet and paint and floors made out of recycled materials such as tires, Walker said. Although the cost of construction was high, it will be balanced by lower operating costs thanks to energy efficient equipment that reduces heating and air conditioning costs, she said. Attention to energy efficiency helps the environment and people who use the complex, said Bahar Armaghani, the assistant director of UF's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program. "And since we spend over 90 percent of time indoors, we need to provide a healthy indoor environment for the people," she said. The complex also features lowflow water fixtures, water-saving showerheads and touch-free doors to help combat germs. Building materials came from within 500 miles of the complex to reduce transport-related carbon emissions and stimulate the local economy. The use of a point system can hinder the quality of environmentally friendly buildings, said David Eardley, president of the studentrun organization Gators for a Sustainable Campus. The stadium earned 52 out of the 69 available points for the certification. "My main problem with [the program] is that, in my understanding, you can pick and choose things," he said.

UF professor discusses regional planning efforts abroad 0 HE WORKS WITH PEOPLE FROM BOLIVIA, BRAZIL AND PERU. By SHEMUEL ARRINDELL Alligator Contributing Writer A well-traveled UF professor spoke about his experiences in South America to a crowd of 10 people gathered at the Civic Media Center Wednesday evening. Stephen Perz, a UF associate professor of Sociology, discussed his work with local people from Bolivia, Brazil and Peru. The three countries share common borders, known as the tri-national frontier, and Perz has been to the area more than 10 times during the past seven years to work to help local people more effectively participate in regional planning. Many local communities do not have access to informaLocal tion about large-scale changes News such as new roads or climate change, which can still affect their lives, Perz said. This can lead to social problems involving human rights abuses as well as environmental problems such as deforestation, as seen in the 1980s and 1990s. Unless local people get external support, it is very difficult for them to participate in regional planning to avoid these problems, Perz said. "These things are worth doing because they need us and we need them," he said. CA$-i.'.

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 28, 2009 Safety School Gators must use caution when leaving bars et's face it, a summer spent in good ol' Gainesville is sure to include a healthy dose of partying from time to time. Whether you enjoy drinking straight from the pitcher at Gator City or getting your swerve on listening to Notorious B.I.G. upstairs at Sharab, Gainesville offers a multitude of fine boozing establishments all over town. But with late night bar crawls followed by the requisite early morning stop at Pita Pit for the finest in falafel, students often find themselves stumbling home oblivious to the dangers lurking in the dark. As a result of increased criminal activity, specifically robberies near the UF campus, the UF Police Department released a tip sheet on Wednesday to help students stay safe. Ranging from not walking alone at night to staying in well-lit areas, the list offers a few fairly basic recommendations on how to avoid falling victim to robbery. Interestingly enough, the one tip that caught our eye suggested avoiding a level of intoxication that makes you an easy target. What they are trying to say is go ahead and enjoy your Dos Equis, just don't keep drinking until you've successfully convinced yourself you are the most interesting man in the world. We're not here to preach, nor are we pretending to be your parents. The Editorial Board has been known to frequent a fair share of Gainesville's water holes (OK, more like every bar) in our day. Rather, we hope a gentle reminder of a few things you already know might help prevent an unfortunate situation from dampering your summer fun. Loan Sharks From scrambling retirement nest eggs to making housing foreclosures moreprevalentthanStarbucks on a Seattle street corner, the economic downturn has been a real, well, bitch. The latest to feel the wrath of the recession's iron fist? Student loan forgivingness programs. According to an article in The New York Times, college graduates across the country find themselves financially strapped thanks to decreased funding of these programs. States such as California and Kentucky have turned to cutting student loan forgiveness initiatives to help balance a severely bloated state budget. Created as an incentive to lure students to embark in careers such as a special education teacher or public interest lawyer, the programs offer a chance for a highly discounted degree for giving back to the community. While states have relied on nonprofit organizations to help foot the bill, the federal government continues to offer students a chance at a cheap education if they commit to teaching for five years in a low-income area. The loan forgiveness from the federal government, however, checks in at $17,500 -a small dent in the ever-rising cost of attending a four-year college or university. Simply put, more must be done to ensure the best and the brightest can be enticed to pursue careers in education and law that serve the interests of the masses. Given America's current economic climate, our harsh reality ensures budget cuts will be made. Hell, few know better than UF students. But to dismiss student loan forgiveness programs as a money saving cure-all reflects an archaic ideology bound to breed ill-effects in the future. 01 the independent florida alligator Kristin Bjornsen Dan Seco EDITOR OPINIONS EDITOR Brittany Davis Andrew Stanfill MANAGING EDITORS The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must includethe author's name, classification and phone number Names wiii be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105 W University Aye or send them to P0 Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

The desperation in his eyes told me all I needed to know. "Please tell me you're going to sleep with this girl," he told me, "because I can't. My life is over. Look at me, look me in the eyes: Don't. Ever. Get. Married. You got that? Ever. Don't get me wrong, she's great, but she's ALWAYS THERE." Frightening, isn't it? As school has ended for so many this summer, decisions must have inevitably been made about the future of many college relationships. Most will eventually go their separate ways, but some of them will end up staying with their college sweethearts in the hopes of getting married and living happily ever after. And an idea like that is an idea on par with an invasion of China. Life together in college may have been fun, but that life you knew is over. Remember those endless Saturday nights spent closing down Balls, then adjourning to an off-campus house for a flip-cup tourney? Or those girls/guys trips to Vegas or Miami or New Orleans, where you did things you swore you'd never speak of again? Or the excitement of meeting someone new in a place you never thought you would? Those are all, for the rest of your life, finished. You have doomed yourself to a world of social events that only include other couples. While your single friends incessantly drunk dial you with tales of their mid-20s, you're already three hours deep into a sober night's sleep. The late-night flip-cup party has been replaced by a "party" that consists of you and three marriage a bad idea Matthew Meltzer Speaking Out_ other couples sitting on a couch watching "It's Me or the Dog." That's if you're lucky enough to avoid "Grey's Anatomy." The craziest part of your social calendar becomes "game night," where you might even invite over a few single friends for a rousing game of Pictionary. Or if things get REALLY out of control, a "couples vs. singles" game of beer pong. But the festivities won't be lasting much past midnight, and your best case scenario is a few minutes of drunk couple's sex where the guy can't function and the girl can't move. Meanwhile your single friends have used this as a pre-party and won't be getting home until you are getting up. The highlight of your week will be watching playoff hockey with a guy you vaguely know from work, just so you can get out of the house. It's not that you like hockey, or that your wife is even that bad. But when you spend every hour of every day with someone, you look for any, and I mean any, excuse to take a break. TV and movies like to make marriage look like endless love or complete misery. But in reality, it is neither. It is a lot of monotony and a lot of compromise, with a little resentment thrown in. Or so I am told. In your 20s, you still have so much to accomplish and so much to experience, tying yourself to someone can only lead to bad things.

UF budget must include stimulus money I know many of us are breathing a sigh of relief because the worst of the budget cuts facing the University of Florida a few months ago have not come to pass. Unfortunately, 67 people are still facing the possible loss of their jobs -many of them are the underappreciated staffers who keep the school running. Worse yet, many of them are facing that unnecessarily. At last week's Faculty Senate meeting, President Bernie Machen revealed UF's budget for 2009-2010 and explained that he felt he has to make cuts because the budget from the state-used federal stimulus money reflects dollars he is not sure he can rely on in future years. However, the president's plan is ignoring that there will be a small increase in permanent dollars in the coming years: increased tuition. In 2009-2010, Machen reported tuition increases will bring in $20 million more. Additionally, in 2010-2011 there will be about $6 to $8 million more even if the school is unable to get any donations for needbased financial aid (by state law 30 percent of new tuition dollars, or the same amount in donations, must go to financial aid). Why can't the UF administration take some of the nonreccurring stimulus dollars to pay salaries this year until the new tuition money arrives next year? Surely that is preferable to laying off even more already overworked staffers. Bret Seferian 7LS Florida legislators guilty of self-interest The Florida Legislature's 2009 session may be over, but it should not be quickly forgotten. From budget woes to the fall of indicted former Speaker Ray Sansom, this year's extended session was one of the more memorable in recent history. Around here, it would be easy to think the University of Florida's budget cuts were the worst thing to be debated, but smart voters will never forget a proposed bill equally as unnerving as the so-called "election reform" bill (HB 7149) that a group of self-interested legislative leaders attempted to ram through late in the session. Touted as fraud reform, HB 7149 was actually designed to make it more difficult for Floridians to register and cast their vote. Instead of promoting true election reform to ensure that every voter and every vote counts, this proposed legislation was nothing more than a naked power grab. We should all be thankful that a strong, unified response from civil rights and election protection groups, and an outpouring of public opposition, ultimately thwarted it. Supporters of the bill, including House Speaker and Ocala Rep. Larry Cretul and soon-to-be Senate President and UF lecturer Mike Haridopolos, made clear that they value their self-interest ahead of the best interests of Florida's voters. Haridopolos and the majority leaders of both houses have already made it clear that they plan to attempt a similar self-serving power grab next year. Shame on them, and on all the legislators in Tallahassee who supported this bill, for trying to game our electoral system for their benefit. Joe Eagleton 7LS THURSDAY, MAY 28, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Ginnie Springs needs to go green I camped at Ginnie Springs two weekends ago and, overall, I was satisfied with my experience. However, my friends and I were disheartened that there were no recycling bins on site. We were disturbed to observe many campers and other visitors drinking and throwing their beer cans throughout the park and into the river. The fact that Ginnie Springs is privately owned would make me believe that a stronger effort would be made to put a recycling program in place, but the opposite seems to be the case. As far as the river, knowing that this is public waterway, I find it unfortunate that there has been so much disrespect that seems to be condoned by a private entity that profits tremendously from its access to the river. If Ginnie Springs wants its customers to take its facility seriously as an "outdoor adventure," it is critical that it take greater responsibility for its environmental impact. Laurie Heinitz Orlando, Fla. UF budget cuts reflect sound course of During Tuesday's Board of Trustees meeting, I voted to approve President Bernie Machen's budget cut plan because it puts UF in the best financial position going forward and serves the interests of the entire student body as well as it can during these trying economic times. The first reason is that President Machen went about these cuts in the most respectful and efficient way possible. He was in constant communication with all of the department heads and engaged the Faculty Senate, as well as kept the student body informed at all times. I met with President Machen numerous times before I was convinced of this plan and know that this plan was constructed with our best interests in mind. President Machen did a great job putting off as many cuts as he could before he had to cut people, and this is the end result of that mentality. Another important reason is that these policies let us plan for the future and remain flexible. Some essential measures in this plan include as few cuts to staff and faculty as possible, the elimination of minimal full programs and the postponement of $11.5 million that will be cut in the fall to give time to adjust for any possible market fluctuJordan Johnson ations. I personally lobbied for these Speaking Out policies because if we were to use all of our federal stimulus dollars right off the bat to extend layoffs in hopes for better times, we would be doing a disservice to students. These policies leave UF in a safer place, economically speaking. The combined revenue of these policies, as well as the cutting of vacant positions and the elimination of non-personnel lines like travel and conferences, will make up for the budget shortfalls while protecting as much the value of every student's education as much as possible. We have to do the best action for students we can with what we have and this plan does just that. Obviously we would want to keep some of these programs and staff, but the path this agreement sets out for us delays layoffs as long as we can while still retaining the tools we need to achieve the goals of this great university. The way we handle these budget cuts will be one of the most important issues our university and my administration will face over the next year. Just as President Machen asked for any ideas or plans to help us deal with this issue, I ask for the same from my colleagues and from the students at UF. We will need the combined force of all of our resources to make sure that we go forward from this in a way that retains our status as a world-class, higher education institution. I know that we can overcome these troubles with the wealth of knowledge that we possess as a group and look forward to working with anyone with ideas to offer; students, faculty, and everyone in between.

10, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 28, 2009 Board of Trustees confirms $42.2M budget cut plan $11.6M IN CUTS STILL MUST BE ALLOCATED. By THOMAS STEWART Alligator Staff Writer tstewart@alligator org UF's Board of Trustees, the university's highest governing body, voted unanimously to approve $42.2 million in budget cuts Tuesday. But UF Provost Joe Glover said after the meeting that students may not feel the effect on class sizes and offerings until two years from now, when the federal stimulus money being used to cover some of the cuts runs out. The trustees approved the plan presented to them by UF President Bernie Machen. The same plan was sent to the UF community Friday. The plan includes $30.6 million in specific cuts and $11.6 million in unspecified cuts. The total cut is about 6 percent of UF's $700 million state-allocated budget, said UF's Chief Financial Officer Matt Fajack, which is smaller than the 10 percent worst-case-scenario cut UF was preparing for. Four faculty and 49 staff are slatthe meeting, Machen said he expects ed to be laid off under the plan, in some changes before the final budaddition to about 150 positions that get is implemented. will be eliminated. These positions "I think we're gonna have some are vacant, will be vacant due to readditional conversations with sevtirement or are held by eral units," he said.

Twenty-three consider alternate budget cut prolayoffs, in addition to 82 position posals from administrators. After eliminations, are planned. Glover said after the meeting that when stimulus money runs out, it's possible fewer students will be able to sign up for classes, class sizes might become bigger or that students will have a smaller selection of classes. "It remains tobe seenin twoyears how we manage this problem if the state hasn't recovered," he said. The impact of the cuts on UF's research is harder to determine, he said, but eliminating about 150 positions will inevitably have an effect. "That's a substantial hit to the university's research," he said. STUDENT GOVERNMENT SG unanimously approves Chomp the Vote director By CHELSEA KEENAN Alligator Writer Student senators were able to find common ground during Tuesday's Senate meeting after two weeks of fighting and many displays of partisanship. Beacause there are still many open Senate seats and senators approved recommendations for committees during the meeting, no new legislation was presented. However, Student Body President Jordan Johnson stopped by to get the approval for his nominations of two Student Government agency directors, Chomp the Vote and Nightlife Navigators. Law student Jenna Stern was approved unanimously to take over as the director for Chomp the Vote, an organization in charge of educating, registering and encouraging students to vote in local and national elections. Johnson said he wanted to find someone with a grassroots personality and who was self-motivated. Stern was a candidate for Senate during the spring election and represented the Orange and Blue Party. She also helped mobilize UF's Barack Obama campaign and is currently in California working on another campaign. Law student Philip Erwin was also approved unanimously to take over as the Nightlife Navigator director, a position Johnson said he'd considered eliminating. This agency is in charge of promoting safe transportation solutions for students who are out drinking. Johnson said Erwin will Ossip act as a middle man between students and club or bar owners, educating students on their options when leaving a club after drinking. Johnson said he is also looking into acquiring a Zingo service to prevent drunken driving. The Zingo driver rides a scooter, folds the scooter into the person's trunk and drives the customer home in his or her own car. The program is used by the University of Georgia and the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. Before senators approved Johnson's nominations, he lauded UF President Bernie Machen's decision on how to allocate $42.2 million in budget cuts. "We have to do the best we can with what we have, and I believe this plan does just that," Johnson wrote in a press release. 13" STREET Only 6 Blocks from UF Campus! 352.338.7467 unS i r y s-X -I -MIlE -I U Alligator Summer Special The Independent Florida Alligator is giving away Free Color Ads to our contract customers.

THURSDAY, MAY 28, 2009 0 ALLIGATOR, 11 Residents have trouble finding landlords who accept voucher prices SEMINARY, from page 1 "I had a leak that lasted for four years," Bryant said. "It was wood rot." However, Bryant felt that the more than 50 uni ts at Seminary Lane were habitable, despite uneven floors and lack of insulation. "I think we could live with that," he said. But after five years of debt, the organization that owned the project decided not to renew its contract with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for 2009, which expires this month. "We decided to take these buildings down and build something simply more usable," said Godley. Several residents think that they are being evicted to make room for student housing. "Personally, I think they are going to be another University House," Bryant said, pointing to the top of the University House building on NW 13th Street. The student apartments are visible from his yard. Demetrick Watson, 30, another Seminary Lane resident, agrees. "This is prime real estate, five minute walking distance to everything." The subsidized housing is located several blocks north of the UF campus. "More student housing is too much," said City Commissioner and UF Assistant Vice President of Student Affairs Jeanna Mastrodicasa. "Student housing people will say it's a bad idea because they have trouble filling them already, that's why there's a very large market." Although Godley said that the site will not be used for student housing, she is not sure what will be built there once it is torn down. "We're working in partnership with [the Gainesville Housing Authority] and the City," she said. However, there isno record of the organization formally asking the city for assistance, according to Bob Woods, the City of Gainesville spokesman. City commissioners Mastrodicasa and Jack Donovan said that the organization declined help that the city offered. Many Seminary Lane residents, however, are asking for help. Bryant, his 19-year-old daughter and his two grandchildren are not the only residents who haven't found a place to live. Another such resident is Lee Lopez, 35, Bryant said. "She had three kids, and they put her out, boarded up the house this morning," said Masheria Mitchell, an 18-year-old Seminary Lane resident. Brittany Lopez, 20, came to Local Seminary Lane from Arredondo NewS Farms on Archer Road to look for her mother and 13-, 3and 2-year-old siblings. "You see what they did," she said, pointing at the boarded up house. "They threw all my mom's shit out!" Bryant said he saw the Gainesville Housing Authority put clothes on the porch that morning. Lopez did not qualify for a voucher because of the eviction, Brittany said. Godley said that those with criminal records, substantial income or those who haven't paid rent did not qualify for a voucher. "They just need to help people," Lopez said of the Gainesville Housing Authority. Lorenzo Johnson, 50, questioned the Housing Authority's actions. "How can you do that, put kids out? Look at this weather," he said, motioning toward the pouring rain. "Ain't no answer for that, whether you pay rent or not." According to Godley, Housing Authority is doing a "stellar job" and has a list of places for residents to go. Donovan, however, thinks that they did a less-than-stellar job. "They did not handle it well," he said. "If you're Housing Authority, your job is to get people safely into housing and if you're not doing that, you're not doing your job." But Donovan also said that the blame should not all be on Housing Authority. "Housing authorities in general don't have enough money for maintenance." Still, Bryant, who has lived in Seminary Lane for more than 20 years, feels that if they are kicking them out, "they are supposed to replace us." Johnson wonders "who is going to help these people if Housing is not?" Gainesville Housing Authority could not be contacted for comment. Castro released without bail, cannot possess spray paint TAG, from page 1 to the GPD headquarters to see if he could help resolve the situation, but was unable to get any information about the case. "At this point we're just trying to figure out how to get him out," Shillington said. Castro was released later that night without bail on the condition that he'll have no contact with The Top and that he won't possess spray paint. He was also given a curfew from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. Shillington said he liked Castro's tribute to Bernard and would not remove it. "We're gonna leave it up as a memorial," he said. "It's actually a really beautiful screen print of the guy. He said although he didn't know Bernard personally, he recognized him as someone who regularly patronized The Top. "He seemed like he was a really sweet guy, and it's just a tragic situation," he said. Aurora Brink, manager of American Apparel, said on Wednesday that Castro came by that day to remove the mural of Bernard and apologize. Brink said she wished she could have kept it up, or put up something of her own, but it goes against company policy. She said there are other ways to memorialize Bernard, adding that everyone who works at the store was good friends with him. "We were lucky to have known Barry for so long," she said. Castro said Sharab Lounge, where he bartends, will hold a silent auction Thursday night to help pay for Bernard's funeral and to pay for his parents to fly from Haiti to Gainesville.

12, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 28, 2009 C E3 Maps courtesy of Mitchel Stimers, Department of Geography, Kansas State University I With two BCS national football titles in three years, it's unsurprisig that Gainesville's greatest sin is pride. But according to a research group, the sin means the college town exhibits diverse debaucheries. Geographers from Kansas State University mapped the seven biblical sins county-by-county across the U.S., revealing that Alachua is one of the most prideful counties in Florida. Pride, the deadliest sin according to some, is mapped by combining the data from Envy, Wrath, Lust, Gluttony, Sloth and Greed, each of which is determined by a separate statistic, or group of statistics. Researchers split each sin into five levels of intensity, and when mapped, the darkest is the most sinful, said Mitchel Stimers, co-author of the project. In Alachua, Lust registered at the highest level of sinfulness, Envy, Wrath and Sloth reached the second highest, Greed placed in the middle level and Gluttony finished at the second lowest level. Consistently high rates of sin pushed Alachua into the top 14 most prideful counties in Florida, even though it only ranked at the highest level in one of the six substantiating sins, Stimers said. Jacob Larson, associate pastor at Vineyard Church of Gainesville, was surprised when he found out Alachua was high up on the scale of pride. "I guess we have the Gator Nation here," Larson said. "And we're very proud to be Gators." However, it's worth having the pride that develops a sense of individualism and pushes people to give back to humanity, he said. "It's giving credit where credit is due," Larson said. The dangerous part is when pride starts to dehumanize, he said. "If you choose to love yourself more than anyone else you. commit atrocities to another person because you love yourself that much," he said. "The self-love begins to kill you eventually." Envy was tied to the number of thefts per capita. Although the crime rate decreased in Alachua by 3.3 percent from 2007 to 2008, larceny has seen a slight increase in the same period, according to Art Forgey, public information officer for Alachua County Sheriff's Office. Some of the crime statistics can be blamed on the worsened economy because people often become desperate under financial stress, he said Alachua's large student population might also explain some larceny cases, he said. The start of the school year shows a noticeable increase in robberies. Scooters, cars and other personal belongings are often stolen from students. "Many students tend to leave their cars and apartments unlocked," he said. "For most of them it's their first time on their own." Wrath was plotted by the number of violent crimes per capita. Cities tend to have higher crime rates. But demographics and population size are very important when comparing data among counties, according to Steve Maynard, Alachua County Sheriff's Office spokesman. "It 's a very tough question," he said. "In comparison with huge counties like Broward our crime rate is probably relatively low." He doesn't believe UF contributes to the number of violent crimes. Common crimes, such as bike theft and underage alcohol consumption, are more prevalent among students, he said. The number of violent offenses in Alachua, which include rape, assault, threats and stalking, increased by 6.2 percent between 2007 and 2008, according to the Uniform Crime Report Domestic Violence Data for Alachua County. Stalking and threats made a large part of the increase. For Lust, researchers used the number of sexually transmitted diseases per capita. One reason for Alachua's high rate of STDs could be the younger population, according to George Gibbs, regional program manager for the Alachua County Health Department. The most common sexually transmitted diseases in Alachua are gonorrhea and Chlamydia, which are largely carried by people between 15 and 24 year old. Gluttony was determined by fast food restaurants per capita. Alachua's low score on the Gluttony scale could be because Gainesville is one of the 25 most educated cities in U.S., according to Roland Loog, director of Visit Gainesville, which provides visitor information. Knowledge generally leads to higher income, and Loog believes educated populations shop for healthier food, he said. Greed was measured by comparing the ratio between average income per capita and the number of individuals below poverty line. A higher ratio meant there is greater separation between social classes. Stimers has received some criticism over his team's choice of statistics, particularly those tied to Gluttony and Sloth. Originally, as shown in the maps, Sloth was determined by a comparison of money spent on arts, entertainment and recreation against unemployment rates. Under pressure to have the presentation ready for a geographers' conference in mid-March, the research team had to choose data that not only represented the sin but also was available for analysis, Stimers said. "You can think of an idea theoretically, but then you have to get the scientific data for it," he said. "It's art as much as science." Stimers said the data is in the process of reevaluation with a focus on Gluttony and Sloth because their distributions didn't show a clear pattern on the maps. Gluttony will be re-plotted with child obesity rates and Sloth will be updated with more detailed information on expenditures from the U.S. Census Bureau's 2007 Economic Census. 4

THURSDAY, MAY 28, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 15 Colorful clothes can brighten gray days REBEKAH GEIER + AVENUE WRITER "Weather is a great metaphor for life -sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad, and there's nothing much you can do about it but carry an umbrella." Pepper Giardino probably uttered this often-quoted phrase long before multicolored rain boots and customprint umbrellas hit the scene. Nowadays, there's a lot you can do about a rainy situation. And better yet, you can do it with style. For one reason or another, people tend to assume that gloomy skies require gloomy attire. At UF, this is rarely the case. Walking around campus on a rainy day is almost like going to an art festival. Boots and umbrellas act like canvases that display patterns -from zebra prints to polka dot, flowers to skulls -it's all stretched across those rambunctious rubber boots. Students bustle across the wet ground sheltered by a canopy of umbrellas, each its own work of art -florals, stripes, paisleys, Monet's -they're all covered. The parade of candy-colored rain gear is enough to have anyone looking forward to the next thunderstorm. But still some people insist on wearing the gloomy weather on their sleeves, with baggy Avenue sweats and clunky Styles sneakers, when there's really no need for the clothing to reflect the atmosphere. It's fun and easy to stay stylish even on the dreariest days. With weather this blue your outfit should be a way of changing the mood. UF business and advertising student, Amanda Freilich knows this. Despite the wet streets, she sports an outfit that defines fashion-meetsfunction. With an American Apparel hoodie, leggings and Converse, she stays cute and comfortable. To cop her look, pick up an umbrella with a playful pattern, (Freilich found hers at Publix), and wear it with neutral-colored clothing that have some colors found in the umbrella's design. Leggings are perfect for the rain; they avoid the heavy drag of wet jeans. Finally, slip on closed-toe shoes, like Sperry Top-Siders, sneakers or flats, so that your feet don't get cold. If wild-patterned boots or umbrellas can't be found in your closet, don't fret. You can still turn heads by borrowing a color from the rainbow. Bright clothes don't only stand out against the natural gray backdrop, but the color also provides confidence that will help brighten your day. The fashion forecast for the rest of the summer is sure to include more outrageous rain gear to get you excited for the next drizzly day. But be sure to always have your foldable umbrella, because summer weather can be just as spontaneous as you are. a 'Rebekah Geier / Alligator UF business and advertising major Amanda Freilich, 20, poses with her umbrella. 'Slumdog' filmmakers meet kid stars MIUMBAI, India (AP) -The makers of "Slumdog Millionaire" met the film's two impoverished child stars on Wednesday and reassured them they will soon have new homes. But the father of one of the children stormed out, saying the filmmakers have not done enough to help. Rubina Ali, 9, and Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail, 10, both lost their homes this month after city authorities demolished parts of their slum in Mumbai. Rubina has been staying with relatives and Azhar has been living in a makeshift shanty of tarps and blankets with his parents. "We've been trying for a long time to move them into legal accommodation," director Danny Boyle told reporters at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences on the outskirts of Mumbai, where he and producer Christian Colson met the children and their families. Relations between the filmmakers and the children's families have grown tense since the phenomenal success of the film, which grossed more than $326 million. The filmmakers set up a trust aimed at ensuring the children get proper homes, a decent education, a monthly stipend and a nest egg when they finish high school. They have pledged to spend up to $100,000 to buy the two families new apartments and have donated $747,500 to a charity to help slum children across Mumbai. Colson has described the trust as substantial, but will not tell anyone how much it contains -not even the children's parents -for fear of making the youngsters vulnerable to exploitation. Nirja Mattoo, who helps oversee the children's trust, said a new home has been found for Azhar's family near to his school and neighborhood. "We are finalizing the deal. Next week it should be done," she said. The hunt for Rubina's house continues, she added. But Rafiq Qureshi, Rubina's father, said Boyle has not done enough. "It's no big deal for them, this kind of money. It's been five or six months we've been living in such difficulty.

Chris Brown says he's 'not a monster' NEW YORK (AP) -Chris Brown tells his fans he's "not a monster" in a video posted on YouTube. In it, the 20-year-old singer leans in and speaks directly into the camera, which appears to be positioned in front of a bowling lane. He talks about his new album called "Graffiti," and a single expected this summer. Then he says: "Everybody that's haters, they just been haters. All my real fans, I love you. I ain't a monster." Brown, who's been charged with felony assault and making criminal threats against Rihanna on the night of the Grammy Awards in February, did not mention his former girlfriend. It's not immediately clear when the video was shot. A publicist for Brown didn't immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday.

16, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 28, 2009 Make time for shoulder rubs, squeezes and kisses ANNIE ANTHONY AVENUE WRITER Maybe it's due to the recession, but when it comes to sex, corners are being cut. Full-body massages have been downsized to shoulder rubs, dry humping has filed for bankruptcy and you can't find decent oral anywhere. After a long day at work or in class, all I want is some good sex. I can feel the stress build up, but after a slew of sexual mediocrity my sexual urge has been doused. I need greatness in my life. Good sex is more than just the insertion of a penis into a vagina. Sex is like a magic stew, it's about giving and taking, using the right amount of creativity, with the correct dose of spontaneity and an overflow of passion to produce a recipe you'll love. After a little introspection on past experiences, I realized that my top three sexual encounters were memorable because of amazing foreplay. Not necessarily hot-body oils and tantric massages, but mental foreplay, in addition to soft kisses, tight squeezes and passionate nibbles. It is well known that foreplay is the "Yellow Brick Road" to orgasm. And if we're on the same ride -then great sex is the destination. So, why isn't everyone anxious to bring out the whips and chains, suck toes or lick the chocolate syrup off of normally concealed body parts? The answer: Time. According to the most recent Durex survey, the average couple spent 20 minutes engaging in foreplay. Well, I guess I'm way below average then. Twenty minutes -already my little head is calculating. I don't have time for that. If I wanted to be proactive, I guess I could schedule an hour for sex into the Blackberry before work, in between studying or during my break. But that's a little excessive. What I'm saying is that it gets easy to get caught up, but foreplay (like sex) gives the bodies a chance to release, unite and explore. Sex is amazing when done correctly, and it shouldn't be cheapened with half-ass foreplay tactics. It gets easy for two people to get stuck in a repetitive sexual rut, but there's a way out. Relax and use every minute necessary to get to orgasm number one. two. .or three. Because what else would you rather be doing than having great sex? Nothing. So, let the clothes slide off and enjoy your life -you owe yourself. Local video store lassoes in customers with indie flicks BRIANTI DOWNING AVENUE WRITER While most people are still renting movies from stores like Blockbuster and Movie Gallery, a small local video store is thriving in the shadow of these corporate giants cast. Video Rodeo, 1119 W. University Ave., has been able to grow in spite of the big wigs in the movie rental business and become a part of the community. Roger Beebe, an associate professor in UF's Only in English departSi r S e ment, started the store five years ago with 2,000 VHS tapes he had been storing in his house. "When I opened it, I didn't have any sense of a business plan," Beebe said. "I didn't know if we would be able to pay the bills." Now, almost five years later, the store has more than 4,000 registered customers and about 5,000 videos. Not only does the store run successfully without a business plan, it also runs without management as an employment cooperative, where every employee owns an equal share of the business. The employees meet monthly to decide what new movies they will order, and who deserves a bonus for doing extra work like hanging fliers around town. Unlike other movie rental stores, Beebe said the staff advertises as little as possible to save money to buy new DVDs for the store. What little advertising strategy Video Rodeo has consists of making fliers which are mainly aimed at "sticking it to 'The Man."' On Video Rodeo's Web site, the staff advertises its popular fish bowl full of shredded Blockbuster cards. Anyone who cuts up his or her card in the store receives a discounted video rental. Although larger corporate stores often order every video released in theaters, Video Rodeo is more discerning. Which ever video the store's staff likes is what it orders, said Allison Bittiker, a Video Rodeo employee. "Sometimes I feel like I have seen all of the movies in the store," Bittiker said laughing. "I don't know exactly how many I've seen; we have over 5,000 rentals, and I have seen almost half." With three-day rentals for $3 a video, the store may become even more popular in the community, especially with the current economy, she said. Katie David, a regular customer, said she loves that the store is not a huge corporation. She also enjoys its selection of foreign films and documentaries. Steven H. Keys / Alligator Jan Zamojski, left, a lover of '70s cinema, consults Zachary Veltheim, co-owner of Video Rodeo, for his opinion on independent films at the store on Sunday. As long as Video Rodeo continues to carry the type of films these customers love, it's certain their customers will come back for more. "We feel kind of communitarian," Beebe said. "We're a part of open another branch. the community that a lot of people "I think that it would be crazy support." to try to franchise it," Beebe says. No matter how popular the "What's good enough for me is store becomes, Beebe said he nevjust to keep the collection grower wants to franchise it or even ing." Watching quirky movies helps mother and son to bond ERIK VOSS AVENUE WRITER For me, there's nobetter way to spend those long, summer afternoons than with a matinee. Especially when mom's paying. When I was filling out a Mother's Day card a few weeks ago, I realized that some of the best moments I've shared with my mother have been in empty movie theaters on summer afternoons. Since I was little, my mom would lure me out of the house to see a movie -a subtle tactic to get to know me better. I wasn't the teenager who revealed his emotions in Sharpie ink on his forearm, so these cinema outings were, for her, a good way to make sure her son wasn't a psychopath. It was a challenge. One week I'd want to see "Pokemon: The Movie," and the next I'd be in a "Moulin Rouge" mood. It's not easy finding a pattern between two movies that have nothing in common besides colorful visuals and killer soundtracks. But mom was "Pleasantville always sweet about as a movie fe giving in to the shalpleasuring herself low interests of a bam -there it is, pr teenager. Not many screen, while my m mothers could sit handful of Buncha through three hours of subtitles during "Godzilla 2000," which turned out to have nothing to do with the awesome 1998 "Godzilla" with Matthew Broderick. Not many mothers would sit through that "Godzilla," either. it in )jE Cr What began as a bonding moment between mother and son transformed into an experiment of Oedipal tensions whenever sexual scenes would appear on screen. I'd mutter something like, "Here wasn't marketed we go" or "Really?" as during a housewife if I was as morally outa bathtub, but raged by Kate Winslet's cted on a 30-foot breasts as I assumed my her offered me a mother was. In reality, unch. our thoughts were more like: Me: "Boobs!" Mom: "He's probably thinking,'Boobs!'" And while I predicted the awkwardness of movies like "Charlie's Angels," other times it snuck up on me. "Pleasantville" wasn't marketed as a movie featuring a housewife pleasuring herself in a bathtub, but bam there it is, projected on a 30-foot screen, while my mother offered me a handful of Buncha Crunch. But despite it all, I cherish those moments. My mother and I may have been the only two people who saw "K-PAX." I doubt even Kevin Spacey took his mother to see that. So this summer, when you're seeing "Harry Potter and the Books People Replaced with Twilight" or "Transformers: Toys Blow Up More Stuff" consider taking mom along. Otherwise you might have to actually have a conversation or something.

THURSDAY, MAY 28, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 17 By KARINA GALVEZ Summer is synonymous with bicycle races and fun on two wheels. The tour de France being one of the most famous bike races, may not be the most fun or the easiest race to enter. Alley Cats, a generic term for inner-city bike races, are designed with the bike messenger in mind -get to as many locations around town in as little time as possible. The races, held locally and around the country, are designed like a scavenger hunt where the racers must pass checkpoints on a manifest given to each racer at the beginning of the event. Gainesville's growing bike community has been participating in local Alley Cat races for more than a year, with races sponsored by local bike shops. Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff Participants race to checkpoints 0-a t"E Ma/E, k tt 4ec. Jacob Adams, manager of Spin Cycle on West University Avenue, has organized three races since April. He said it usually takes about a month to plan the manifest accordingly with the theme of the race and to get the sponsors and volunteers ready for the event. "Part of the fun of the race comes from not knowing the course until you receive the manifest," said Adams as he explained why he does not race in the events he organizes. In the planning period, Adams also advertises for the event with posters and fliers locally and by posting the event on www.flfixed.com, a bicycle forum for cyclists on fixed-gear bikes*. He also designs the spoke cards** used during the race. "A lot of people keep them as a memento to show they've participated in the event," said Adams. The race he is preparing for now, the Postman's Calling Alley Cat on May 30, is themed after the 1997 Kevin Costner film, "The Postman." The manifest will include the four local post offices in Gainesville. Each post office will clue bikers as to where their next location should be. Using a similar concept, the Easter Cat, held on the weekend of April 12, required racers to get off their bikes at each locaSubmitted Photo / Michael Pedron Cyclist Dale Zarb displays his battle wound from the Apocoleapyear Alley Cat, Feb. 29, 2008. tion and find an Easter egg with their next clue. RwL a"e Gaine& The scavenger hunt feel and the sense of community among the cyclists in the Alley Cat races allow racers to see the race as fun rather than purely competitive. "They aren't so much about the competition so much as the community of likeminded cyclists getting together and having a good time," said Michael Pedron, board member of The Kickstand, Gainesville's Community Bike Project. "The fun happens before and after the races." Participants are encouraged to dress in costume according to the theme of the race and stay after the races for parties hosted by the sponsors. For the race on Saturday, participants in costume will be eligible to enter both a costume contest and the race itself. For the Easter race, Adams dressed as the Easter bunny for the race, and for another race he participated in, him he and Dave Vollbach, also an employee at Spin Cycle, rode tandem*** in neckties without shirts. "At all bike races, there is a very fun atmosphere, but Alley Cats is the most fun," said Vollbach. "It's just a bunch of people having a good time. You can race hard and you can still have a good time. It's all about the attitude." it 0j f/t tine In the spirit of competition, Vollbach was stopped by a police officer for weaving through traffic and running through a red light. "He asked me if it was worth it to risk my life for a race," he said. "I answered, 'I don't know, it's still early."' Vollbach's desire to quickly resolve his confrontation with the officer landed him in the back seat of the officer's patrol car, handcuffed, for 15 minutes before he was allowed back on the course. He finished in 18th place, a feat which he is still proud of. The races are held on the open streets of Submitted Photo / Michael Pedron Top: Micah Goulet, 26, poses with his bicycle at Spin Cycle Wednesday. Above: Participants in the Apocoleapyear Alley Cat await the beginning of the race on Feb. 29, 2008. Participants were required to run to their bicycles. Gainesville, leaving the decision of whether or not to follow safe traffic laws up to the racers. "The races are informal, but it's not the kind of thing I'd encourage kids to do," said Vollbach. There's no permission on the road to hold these races, the roads are still working. The races are more of a party atmosphere than a family one." Ract e t efh &Ne "Au/, The entry fee to participate in Saturday's 30 race is $5 and a non-perishable food item which will be donated to the Bread of the Mighty food bank. The food bank will be among the stops on the manifest and the racers will drop off their food item during the race. Spin Cycle has also been working with Mother Earth Market by collecting food items all week for the event. This is the first time Spin Cycle worked with a charity during their races, but Adams said the volunteers who work each race play an important role in the event because the profits from each race are minimal. T_" Rwinan CaMf Registration for the Postman's Calling race will begin at 3 p.m. The race will start in front of Spin Cycle at 4 p.m., and a party with live bands, DJs and food will follow after the race at the bike shop. Adams plans on sponsoring a bike race every month of the summer. His biggest project is the Labor Day weekend race, during which he hopes to hold events every day of the weekend. "I really enjoy Alley Cat racing because they are more fun oriented than ordinary racing. You don't have to worry about having the right bike or the right clothes," he said. "Part of what we're doing with Alley Cat racing is making people aware that there's a lot going on in Gainesville as far as cycling." Rike Anfo-a *Fixed-gear: Single speedl bicycle wit hout a freewheel mechanism, meaning the cyclist must pedal constantly. Spoke Card: Laminated card that fits between bicycle spokes; designs depict the race's theme. Tandem: A bicycle built for two.

Sports THURSDAY, MAY 28, 2009 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff The UF baseball team begins NCAA Tournament play Friday when it hosts a Regional including Miami, Jacksonville and Bethune-Cookman. The Gators were swept by the Hurricanes earlier this season. UF BASEBALL No. 11 Gators start NCAA Tournament By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Staff Writer pkegler@a Iligator org The Road to Omaha begins in Gainesville. No. 11 UF (39-20), winners of the No. 8 national seed, will begin its quest for a College World Series berth this weekend when it hosts a NCAA Regional that includes Miami, Jacksonville and BethuneCookman. The Hurricanes (36-20) will open the action Friday with a 1 p.m. matchup with the Dolphins. The Gators will begin their NCAA play at 6:30 p.m. against the Wildcats. The winners of Friday's games will meet at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, and the losers will meet at 1 p.m. "We are very excited for the start of Regional play," coach Kevin O'Sullivan said. Bethune-Cookman will send right-hander Hiram Burgos (6-3, 3.73 ERA) to the mound while the Gators have yet to announce their starter for Friday night's opener. UF will hope to improve upon its recent failures in the postseason. In the two years under O'Sullivan, the Gators are 1-6 in Southeastern Conference Tournament and NCAA Tournament play. Last year UF went to Tallahassee for its Regional and was promptly sent home with two straight losses to Tulane and Florida State. Playing at McKethan Stadium should provide a boost for the Gators. UF is 27-7 at home this season, and the last time it hosted a regional was 2005 when UF swept the Regional and Super Regional rounds in Gainesville en route to a CWS berth Overall, UF is 22-7 at home in NCAA play. UF's national seed means the Gators wouldhosta Super Regional if they advance past this weekend. The weekend's biggest challenge would seem to be the Hurricanes who swept the Gators in a threegame series in Gainesville on Feb. 27 -March 1. Track heads to Regional 0 THE WOMEN'S TEAM JUMPED TO NO. 16 IN THE POLLS. By JESSICA ETTER Alligator Writer After the then-unranked UF women's track and field team won the Southeastern Conference Outdoor Championships nearly two weeks ago, its focus shifted from an SEC title to an NCAA title. The men's and women's track and field teams are traveling to Greensboro, N.C., to participate in the 2009 NCAA East Regional this weekend. According to the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association, the men's track and field team is still ranked first in the nation and the women's team rose to number 16 in the polls. UF has had a lot of success at NCAA Regionals in the past. Both teams won the East Regional in 2003 and 2004. The men have never placed lower than second at the event. This is the first meet since the SEC Championship where the women shocked LSU and Tennessee and won the SEC title, while the men came in second behind Arkansas. Field events will begin on Friday at 11 a.m. with the men's javelin. The weekend's meet will wrap up on Saturday evening with the men's 4x400 meter relay. "We have to have as many scoring opportunities as we can to win NCAA titles," UF head coach Mike Holloway said. Kevkhishvili Following the SEC Championships, junior Mariam Kevkhishvili, who set a new SEC record in the shot put, felt she could do better than her winning throw of 59-2.75/18.05m. "I will be ready for regionals," she said following the meet. The SEC presented awards this past Monday to junior Calvin Smith, who was SEE TRACK, PAGE 26 UF sits in 25th at NCAAs By ANTHONY CHIANG Alligator Writer After a nightmarish first day, the Gators drastically improved their performance in the second round but could only improve their position on the leaderboard by four spots. The No. 6 UF men's golf team still finds itself in 25th place with a score of 29 over par as it heads into the third round of the NCAA Championships in Toledo, Ohio. Despite the team's score of 26 over par in Tuesday's first round, the Gators fared a lot better on Wednesday and shot 3 over par for the round. "We've played poorly and even though today was a little better, we haven't played well enough to give ourselves a chance to be successful," coach Buddy Alexander said. UF might have dug too deep of a hole in the first round for it to come back. "It was an incredibly disappointing day and a day we might not be able to recover from," Alexander said. After today's third round, the field of teams will be cut to eight. The Gators will need a miraculous round to make up the 16-shot gap Golf between them and the eighth spot. Senior Billy Horschel did his part on Wednesday with a second round score of 3 under par, pushing his tournament score to 2 over par. He will enter today on a high note after finishing the second round with four straight birdies.

No. 1 UF (60-3) will continue its quest for the program's first national title tonight at 9 against No. 9 Arizona (46-15) in the first round of the Women's College World Series in ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City. The Wildcats are one of the most storied programs in college softball, having made it to the WCWS 21 out of the last 22 years. Andrew Stanfill/ Alligator Staff The top-seeded UF softball team will face ninth-seeded Arizona tonight in the Gators' opening game of the Women's College World Series. The Wildcats have made it to the WCWS 21 of the last 22 years. Arizona first baseman Sam Bannister said her team was taking the role of underdog in stride despite its successful history and the fact that she would not have given the Wildcats that title in the first place. Given the fact that anything can happen once the tournament starts -every team is now effectively 0-0 -Walton was quick to point out that his team's successful season does not provide it with any discernible advantage. "Facing Arizona in the first round, I'll go with the opposite of what Sam said and say that we're the underdog," Walton said. "They have won more national championship games here than we ever have at this stage. Our kids are embracing that role, and we have to do a good job at staying focused and staying grounded." A team as consistently on top of the college softball world like Arizona could negate the edge UF has in terms of its experience and familiarity with the WCWS, both luxuries the Gators did not have last year. "I feel like our team has a little bit more experience coming back for a second year," catcher Kristina Hilberth said. "Obviously playing a team like Arizona, who has a lot of experience, in the first round, we're going to have to battle it out." Ever since their loss to Texas A&M in the semifinals of last year's WCWS, the Gators have been looking forward to the final tournament of the season. It's no secret that UF set out to win a national championship after getting a taste of postseason success last season. But after winning the NCAA Super Regional in Gainesville last weekend, Hilberth said the team still has the same mindset it has had all year: Every team will give the Gators its best shot, so they cannot look past anyone. "We're ready, but Softball we're just going to take it one game at a time," Hilberth said. "We're excited to get out to Oklahoma City, but you can't win the whole thing until you win the first game." The competition between the two teams will be indicative of a larger conflict throughout this year's WCWS. The Pacific-10 Conference, usually the powerhouse conference, and Southeastern Conference are represented by three teams each. "I said a long time ago that when the SEC got serious about something, they were going to do it right," Arizona coach Mike Candrea said. "I think really when the SEC got involved with women's college softball, the parity kind of spread much quicker, kind of like what baseball experienced 20 years ago. So it wasn't a surprise, it was just a matter of time." UF's wonderful story may not get fairy-tale ending t appears this story deserves only one ending. The plot seems so apropos. That's what scares me about the chances of the No. 1 UF softball team, which begins play today at the Women's College World Series. A year ago, the Gators entered Oklahoma City as the top-seeded team, but they were making their firstever appearance at the final dance. UF dropped its first game against Louisiana-Lafayette, forcing the Gators to fight their way back through the losers' bracket. They almost succeeded but ended up a game short, falling 1-0 to Texas A&M in 9 innings. It was UF's fourth game in two days. Even though this was a 70-5 team, there was a feeling of just being happy to be there. After all, the Gators had been in unchartered territory throughout 2008. So while the season was a success, it left only one expectation for 2009: win a national title. UF lost just one starter from last year's squad -right fielder Mary Ratliff, who coincidentally is also back for this run as the team's student assistant coach. Impressively, the team never shied away from its goal for the season. From day one, the Gators said only one thing would be an acceptable outcome for 2009, and that would include hoisting a trophy out in the Midwest. It's hard not to like this team for a multitude of reasons. The storylines are simply endless. Stacey Nelson, who leads the nation with a 0.41 Phil Kegler ERA, is one of the most domiPhil on the Hill nant athletes on p kegler@a1igator org UF's campus but refuses to get sucked up into the hype of athletics. Hours before Sunday's Super Regional against California, where she would single-handedly lead her team to its second straight WCWS appearance, Nelson was beating her teammates in Scrabble, according to coach Tim Walton. She ranks No. 7 on the NCAA's alltime wins list but yet she keeps track of not a single record she owns. "You don't replace those kids," Walton said. "This kid is one of the most special kids you'll ever have a chance to coach. There isn't a mean bone in her body but yet she still competes." And she is just one of a team full of storylines. How about left fielder Francesca Enea who has tore her ACL twice but is still playing through it? What about Kelsey Bruder, the team's only new starter from a year ago, who happens to be hitting .385 and sits second on the team with 15 home runs? But even though this team is 130-8 during the last two seasons, the 8 losses tell much more about this team. The combined margin of defeat in those defeats? Nine runs. Five of them were 1-0 defeats. Not coincidentally, five of them also were in extra innings. Two of this year's losses came against teams (Washington, Alabama) that will be joining UF in Oklahoma City. The Huskies defeated the Gators 1-0 in Palm Springs, Calif. on Feb. 20. While that may seem like ages ago, the key fact is that UF couldn't scratch out a run against Washington pitcher Danielle Lawrie. Lawrie won national player of the year honors Tuesday, edging out Nelson. If UF has any weakness, it has been timely hitting. Despite the Gators' gaudy record for the second straight year, there is not overwhelming evidence that this fault has been corrected. If third-seeded Washington and UF match up in the championship series, that may spell doom for the Gators. With seven seniors graduating, there is no question that this is the window of opportunity for UF. While Walton is building a quality program in Gainesville, players like Stacey Nelson simply don't come around every day. Next year will be comparable to the football team in the post-Tim Tebow era. Likely good but not quite the same. Now it's time to sit back and watch. The story will finish over the next week. The only question is whether it will have a happy ending or a sad one. Nelson wins CLASS award, loses POY race By ADAM BERRY Alligator Staff Writer aberry@alligator org Senior pitcher Stacey Nelson received one of college softball's most prestigious awards Tuesday but fell short of earning another. Nelson took home the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award at the Party in the Park in Oklahoma City, the opening event for the Women's College World Series. The CLASS Award stands for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School and focuses not only on the player's athletic accomplishments, but her work in the classroom and commuNo other UF athlete had ever won the award. Nelson "Just to be considered was an honor, and to come out on top is something I never dreamed of," Nelson said. However, Nelson did not win the USA Softball National Collegiate Player of the Year Award, which went to Washington junior pitcher Danielle Lawrie. Lawrie, shut out the Gators in a nine-inning, 1-0 win on Feb. 20, handing Nelson, a top-three finalist for the award, and UF one of their three losses on the year.
