About 4,500 attend local Pride Parade


* EVENT LASTED 8 HOURS.

By JARED MISNER
Alligator Writer

University Avenue was quiet
with only the sound of the sporadic
train of speeding cars breaking the
silence of an unusually warm Octo-
ber afternoon.
Until 1:09 p.m.
Running nine minutes late,
Gainesville Police Department be-
gan to block the eastbound lanes
of University Avenue for the ninth
annual Gainesville Pride Parade Sat-
urday.
As rainbow-infused stars and
stripes were unfurled, and parade
marchers began to move east on
West University Avenue to the Bo
Diddley Community Plaza, the
noise began.
Cars honked in support. March-
ers shouted for equality. The Sister
Sledge song "We are Family," Glo-
ria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" and
"The Nicest Kids in Town" from the
musical "Hairspray" blared from
floats adorned with pastel-colored
balloons and rainbow banners and
streamers.
Two petite elderly women held


hands as they walked in front of a
massive motor home draped with
rainbow streamers, honking its


thunderous horn in support of di-
versity.
The Pride Community Center of


North Central Florida led the stream
of paraders, closely followed by UF's
Pride Student Union, The Univer-


iatt Iripp/ Alligator stan
Participants in the LBGT Pride Festival parade down University Avenue for the opening of the festival on
Saturday afternoon.


sity Club, Buchholz High School's
Gay Straight Alliance and the self-
described only feminist bookstore in
Florida, Wild Iris Market.
At 1:27 p.m., three GPD cars fol-
lowed one of Trinity Metropolitan
Community Church's two parade
cars off University Avenue as the
parade ended at Southeast First
Street.
As quickly as it began, University
Avenue returned to normalcy.
The Bo Diddley Community Pla-
za, however, was alive with pride
and festooned with a vast array
of rainbow balloons, banners and
an estimated 4,500 attendees of all
sexual orientations until 9 p.m. Sat-
urday.
The smells of Gainesville's own
Kickin' Devil Cafe's spicy jambalaya
and char-grilled quesadillas mixed
with the sweat of festival attendees
filled the air.
Ben Collins, a member of Trinity
Metropolitan Community Church,
was one of those in attendance.
Collins, who wore a purple T-
shirt with the words "Friends of a
feather flock together" imprinted on
the front spray-painted his hair pink
and added gold and silver glitter for
the event.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

SG responds to low turnout


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Writer

There are 14 million reasons why students
should have voted in this fall's Student Govern-
ment elections.
Although all students contribute the funds
that make up SG's $14 million budget, only 17
percent showed up to have their say as to where
the money goes.
Out of the 49,679 students at UF, 8,483 voted.
"They don't think it affects them," said SG
Supervisor of Elections Ariana Alfonso. "They're
very apathetic of the whole situation."
Alfonso said turnout this fall was higher than
expected for a year without a national election.
The hype around last fall's presidential election
brought a turnout of 10,469 students.
Alfonso said she wishes students would use
SG elections as a way to develop good voting
habits so they can participate in elections outside


of UF in the future, when they might care more
about the issues.
Eric LeBlanc, a UF accounting graduate stu-
dent, said he did not vote in the fall elections.
He said students tend not to vote because they
don't know the issues or the candidates.
Progress Party President Dave Schneider said
filling in a ballot often represents the only inter-
action students have with their representatives.
Schneider said students feel alienated from
SG because they see it as an elite clique that hangs
out on the third floor of the Reitz Union and fails
to reach out to them.
When parties do make themselves known
during election week, they come out in full
force.
UF sophomore Philip Osorio said he feels
bombarded by campaigners and confused when
all three parties congregate in the same area.
"It just clusters up in your mind," Osorio said.

City to share tips for


fire prevention week


By RENEE MONTALTO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville's version of National
Fire Prevention Week kicked off Sun-
day as a way to show people how to
keep homes safe and avoid burns.
The Alachua County Department
of Public Safety and Gainesville Fire
Rescue will host activities this week
to urge residents to "Stay Fire Smart!
Don't Get Burned."
The goal of the project, which is
in its third year for Gainesville, aims


to make residents more aware of po-
tentially dangerous situations arising
from fires and burs that occur dur-
ing the fall season,
National said Carol Davis,
News public information
officer for the De-
partment of Public Safety.
"Our whole goal is to try to pre-
vent fires as we get into the colder
season," Davis said. "People tend to
use more space heaters, fireplaces,
and they tend to turn on heaters after
they have been off for a while. All of

She is a mystery, she is a fan-

The pinup girl is one of about
40 art pieces featured in an exhibit
from the UF Alagarto Printmakers
Guild, which hosted its opening
reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday
in the UF Focus Gallery.
The exhibit, which will run
through Oct. 23, showcases the
work of about 20 members of
Alagarto, a Student Government
sponsored printmaking guild
comprised of undergraduate and
graduate students.
Alagarto, whose name comes
from the Latin and Spanish word
for alligator, was established in
1990 by UF professor Robert Mu-
eller and his former colleague Ken-
neth Kerslake.
Mueller, area coordinator of
the printmaking department in
the School of Art and Art History,
curated the exhibit. He said every
member of the guild who submit-
ted work was guaranteed at least
one piece in the show.

Annexation could


up residents' taxes


By PATRICK ANNESTY
Alligator Writer

City officials addressed the
concerns of people living within a
1,200-acre stretch of land that may
be annexed at a meeting Saturday.
About 15 county residents at-
tended the meeting, and represen-
tatives from Gainesville Regional
Utilities, the police department,
public works, and planning and
development were all on hand to
inform voters.
The land, east of Momingside
Nature Center, is estimated to con-
tain about 3,000 people, according
to Karen Billings, director of strate-
gic planning for the city.
Tax increases were a main con-
cern of residents at the meeting.
Billings presented figures show-


ing a property valued at $35,000
would have a tax increase of $41.24
per year. A property worth $80,000
would see a $94.26 annual increase.
However, these increases
would be balanced by a reduction
in surcharges on
Local utility bills, Billings
News said. Currently, GRU
customers outside
the city pay a 25-percent surcharge
on water and wastewater and a
10-percent surcharge on electricity
and gas.
Residents also inquired about
the possible switch from septic
tanks to city waste systems and
the availability of bus routes in the
area.

resident concerns, please visit Alliga-
tor.org.

Students race to make films


By BEATRICE DIEHL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Twenty-four hours, three
guidelines, six films, one win-
ner.
The Reitz Union Board
kicked off All Around
Gainesville Week with a 24-
Hour Film Rush on Saturday,
when student teams created
films under certain conditions
in just 24 hours.
This year, each film had
to include a local Gainesville
event, a person who represents
Gainesville and the line, "What,
you haven't been to X-Mart be-
fore?"
This year's winning film,
"The Jogger," will be screened
before each of RUB's showings
of "The Hangover," playing
nightly until Thursday.
The winning team, named
the Mustachioed Gentlemen,
made its film about a stabbing.

John Rutherford, another
team member, was cut by glass

ity shown in this year's videos
was particularly impressive.

Fire Rescue gives tips to kids for Halloween safety


Danica Spears/ Alligator
Hannah Sealey, left, and Kierra Hall learn to dial 911 at the Alachua County Fire Rescue booth Saturday
evening in Kiwanis Safety City for a Halloween party promoting safety by Gainesville Fire and Rescue.


By ALISON SCHWARTZ
Alligator Writer

It took Pat Dean about an hour to
get ready Saturday night.
First, she put on a layer of white
foundation, followed by glitzy blue
fake eyelashes and a squishy, ruby
nose. With the snap of her red-
striped suspenders, she became
Tootie the Fire Safety Clown.
A member of Gainesville Fire
Rescue, Dean was one of more than
300 who attended the third annual
Halloween-themed Screaming for
Safety event at Kiwanis Safety City.
"Too many kids end up in the
ER," Dean said. "Halloween is a
very vulnerable time for everyone."
Dean handed out balloons and
painted princess and Gators de-
signs on the faces of children trick-
or-treating at the event. But behind
her smiley clown getup, she had a
message.
While painting, Dean talked
to children about the dangers of
playing with lighters, matches and
candles, throwing in a brief lecture
about the difference between tools
and toys.
About 20 organizations had
tables and representatives at the
event, including the Child Advocacy
Center, Safe Kids and Operation Im-
munization. In trick-or-treat fashion,
children donning costumes went to
each table, scooping up candy and
handouts about safety.
Parents joined in on the fun, trail-
ing behind their respective vampires


and fairies while picking up pam-
phlets containing safety tips.
Debora Regan, Safe Kids out-
reach coordinator, said Halloween
is the deadliest day of the year for
children younger than 14.
Regan also handed out informa-
tion about bicycle safety, reinforcing
the importance of wearing a helmet.
"I tell the kids, 'You can't go to
Wal-Mart and get a new brain,'" she
said. "'No more video games. You
won't be able to
Around drive a car. Your
Gainesville life will change
forever.'"
The event topped off with a
costume contest, turning the south
strip of Kiwanis Safety City into a
catwalk for kids clad in homemade
and store-bought costumes alike.
Prizes included lollipops, T-shirts
and flashlights.
Jan Cheah's son John, 5, won the
3-to 5-year old category. Dressed as
a Tyrannosaurus rex, he growled
down the runway, crawling on his
hands and knees at one point while
making dinosaur-like gestures.
"He thinks he's a T. rex," Cheah
said. John nodded in agreement.
But even T. rex isn't immune to
the accidents that put a child's safety
at stake.
"We used to call things that hap-
pen accidents, but almost all acci-
dents can be prevented. They're in-
cidences," event coordinator Krista
Gonzalez said.
"So really, we want to prevent
incidents from happening."


Florida Best Buddies sees lack of community support


11 teams competed in the third annual scavenger hunt


By KRISTEN BOWE
Alligator Contributing Writer


Stand in a grocery store freezer -140 points.
Steal candy from a child 40 points.
About 50 UF students participated in Flor-
ida Best Buddies third annual Midnight Mad-
ness Scavenger Hunt Saturday at Silver-Q Bil-
liards & Sports bar.
The 11 teams performed tasks at various
spots around Gainesville documenting the
completion of each list item with a photo. The


teams raced around from 11 a.m. to 9:45 p.m.
UF sociology major and Best Buddies
member Bryan Rhodes, 20, said although he
wanted to give up at times, his teammates,
two mentally retarded children, helped keep
him going. He said his buddies had so much
energy that he did not want to let them down.
Rhodes' team won the event with a total of
4,470 points. All the group members and their
buddies received gift cards to Target.
Jessica Dominguez, college programs man-
ager for Best Buddies Florida, said the hunt


"We were relying on the Greeks."
Keely McKissack
UFjunior

was scheduled for spring but was postponed
because of a lack of community support.
Dominguez said Florida Best Buddies
hoped to raise $7,000 this year. She said be-
cause of the bad economy it was difficult to
receive sponsorship from the community.
Best Buddies raised about $10,000 at the


2008 scavenger hunt and had more partici-
pants.
She said it was difficult because there was
no campus committee for the event.
Instead, UF public relations junior and the
event's recruitment chairwoman Keely McK-
issack was the only student in the Gainesville
area in charge of organizing the event.
McKissack said at the spring 2008 scaven-
ger hunt there were 40 teams and half of the
teams were from Greek organizations.
"We were relying on the Greeks," she said.
However, she said the Greek organizations
were unresponsive this year.

Editorial
Happy Monday!
We successfully refrained from completing any
of our class assignments this weekend, despite
there not being a Gators football game to distract us. We
even turned a blind eye to all current events. So, because
we lack any opinions (and an opinions editor), we present
you with an I've-never-seen-this-published-on-a-Monday
edition of...



Darts & Laurels

Don't get used to it.
In case of a zombie apocalypse, the Alligator is a great
place to take shelter. There are enough rats hiding in the
walls to sustain the staff, and no zombie knows the door
code to get in the building. But we doubt many others have
as safe a place to hide. That's why we were disappointed
to hear that UF Web administrators took down a zombie
attack plan PDF form created by e-Learning Support Ser-
vices manager Doug Johnson. For not playing along in
what was obviously a joke, we toss a DART at the "flesh-
eating, life-impaired" e-Learning party poopers.
While on the subject of rotting flesh, a small town in
South Dakota has been faced with cleaning up a 44-ton
pile of liquefied meat. The owner of the factory ditched the
bison meat when he moved his business out of the state.
Locals were stuck cleaning up the maggot-infested muck.
Even the mayor of Bridgewater, who served two tours of
duty in Vietnam, said he could not remember ever smell-
ing something that awful, according to an article by the
Associated Press. For not only wasting the lives of thou-
sands of bison but also making the lives of Bridgewater
locals a stinking hell, we throw a learn-to-clean-up-after-
yourself DART at Ilan Parente, a.k.a. maggot meat man.
In time for Halloween, construction workers have
completed the new and improved campus bat house. The
house can hold 400,000 bats, opposed to the 100,000 the
old house was supposed to sustain. They even built a barn

Internet users lack
The Internet is making us rude.
We have become a society that takes to the Inter-
net more and more, not to discover new information
or to collaborate with the information we have, but to vent
our frustrations with our political differences, our stupid
bosses, our inane teachers and our unruly kids. And, damn
it, if it isn't making us all rude.
But, Matt, you ask, where's your evidence? Look no fur-
ther than YouTube. Glance below any video with more than
40,000 views, and I guarantee that after searching through
the posted comments a treasure trove of online refuge will
be found where a few users erupt over something as puer-
ile as whether or not Borat is funny (he is) or if French first
lady, Carla Bruni, puts Keith Richards to shame with her
cover of "You Got the Silver" (she does).
Online message board eruptions can be epic. Three
years ago, when searching online for information about the
prolific Irish author James Joyce, I stumbled upon a mes-
sage board discussion between two factions those who
thought Joyce was the greatest Irish author of all time, bet-
ter than both William Yeats and Oscar Wilde, and those
who thought Joyce was toking when he wrote "A Portrait
of the Artist as a Young Man" and by three hours into
this spat, Northern Ireland unionists and nationalists users
were at an ALL CAPS war with each other.
Fortunately, there haven't been any major breaches in
the brokered peace in Northern Ireland in the last three
years.
This doesn't mean that there aren't real life implications
for online feuds that get out of hand. A Texas couple that
was accused of sexual assault but later found not guilty by
a Texas jury was verbally assaulted on the popular forum
Web site Topix.com. There, anonymous users lashed out on
the couple, accusing them of pedophilia and even murder.


tact in e-arguments
The couple, though, is getting the
last post on the message forum, fil-
ing a defamation lawsuit against on-
line users who believed they could
hide behind their anonymous ava-
tars. Through tracing IP addresses,
Matthew Christ a handful of people had been issued
letters@alligator org subpoenas as of early August.
But these are extreme cases. Most
people aren't accused of sexual assault and then harangued
publicly ad nauseam, and most people aren't subjected to
the hate instilled by fervent fans of Joyce (because no one
reads Joyce).
What we all are subjected to, though, is online news Web
sites. Both The New York Times and The Washington Times
allow readers to post their "opinions" of a news story, and
boy, does everyone have an opinion these days. Except you
wouldn't know it because few online commenterss" are
man (or woman) enough to put their names behind their
self-revered profanity-laced thoughts.
There's little harm in posting an outrageous comment
on a message board or media site like YouTube. There's ac-
tually great entertainment value for the average Web visitor
in viewing epic hissy fits lacking in punctuation. But one
has to wonder what the future generations will think when
they search Internet archives and see how their parents and
grandparents treated each other when the norms of society
were suspended with a cloak of online anonymity.
Free speech is a hallmark of our society, but anonymous
vulgar and degrading "comments" found online make me
wonder if we're all suddenly living in one giant bathroom
stall.

Friday opinions piece shows insensitivity
Campaign season is nowhere near fun for anybody in-
volved: the parties running, the candidates running and
the Student Body. This year, I got lucky: I had a manage-
rial economics exam on Wednesday night that required a
bit more attention. However, I take deep offense with the
Alligator's Editorial Board comparing campaign season to
a "personal Trail of Tears" in Friday's "Darts & Laurels."
This is incredibly insensitive to the thousands of Native
Americans who were forced to relocate during this dark
period of our country's history. It's annoying to be asked
to support a party every few minutes on your way to class,
but how dare you compare a minor displeasure to a period
of ethnic cleansing? Most of us dislike being bothered on
our way to class, but with barely 17 percent of the Student
Body voting, what do you expect to happen? It makes me
wonder if this paper's editorial staff even understands the
repercussions of its writings, let alone the horrors that ex-
isted on the real Trail of Tears. If anything, it saddens me
that the public school system has failed you so badly.

SG politics not surprising
It was disheartening to read the article "Records reveal
SG criminal charges" in the Sept. 29 issue of the Alliga-
tor. However, given the many shenanigans that have oc-
curred during student elections and the various behaviors
on the part of different party members in the past, it is not
surprising. For a long time I have felt that participation in
Student Government is an interesting training ground for

Democrats must compromise with opposition
The latest installment in the Democratic Party's dis-
appointing slew of failures occurred Tuesday when the
public option for health insurance was voted down in the
Senate Finance Committee. Five Democrats joined the Re-
publicans in voting the option into oblivion.
Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., the chairman of the com-
mittee, doesn't believe legislation that includes a public
option will be able to get the 60 votes needed to overcome
a Republican filibuster. Now, it's obvious he seeks to con-
cede certain issues in order to pass the broader aspects of
the plan. But even with his effort to draft a passable piece
of legislation and this most recent conciliation, Baucus
hasn't received confirmation of a single Republican vote.
The only hope for Democrats is Sen. Olympia Snowe,
R-Maine, who may vote in favor of the bill.
According to a CBS News/New York Times poll, 72
percent of Americans support a public option for health
insurance. So even with a 60 percent majority in the Senate
and overwhelming public support, the Democratic Party
is unable to stand its ground. Way to go, gang.
The efforts of Democrats like Baucus to compromise
with the opposition are commendable. It's time for Demo-
crats to buck up and get this legislation passed without
diluting it to the point of impotency.

Festival offers free beers


By MARIA PIQUET
Alligator Contributing Writer
A 20-foot inflatable Red Stag bottle
stood out among throngs of blue, white,
gold and green canopies to show new-
comers where to go.
A line of people coiled around the
Magnolia Parke parking lot, bustling with
people eager to get into Saturday's Greater
Gator Beer Festival.
More than 1,000 people attended the
festival, which provided guests with un-
limited samples of food from local res-
taurants and more than 100 beers from
around the world.
Guests drank traditional beers like
Samuel Adams and Budweiser and sam-
pled others from countries around the
world, including Ukraine, Italy, Israel and
Guatemala.
Participating companies hitched up
their canopies on the Magnolia Parke field
and equipped each with a handful of vol-
unteers who constantly poured beer or
served food to hungry guests.
Beer poured from dozens of taps as
guests devoured fried chicken, pizza, pea-
nuts and pulled-pork sandwiches. Vintage
beer T-shirts were also on sale.
Beer culture was everywhere.
Joey Westfield and Rick Stevenson
wore matching 2-foot mug hats and gold-
en beer-mug sunglasses and said they
came for the beer and the women.
"My favorite kind of beer is free beer,"
said Stevenson, a third-year attendee.
"And there's a lot of it here."
Westfield, on the other hand, has gone
to every Beer Festival since it started in
1997 and has the event T-shirts to prove
it.
"This is my favorite time of the year,"


Westfield said. "There's nothing else like
this around here."
Tasha Healy attended the event for the
first time. Her friend won tickets on the ra-
dio and invited her to come along.
"I'm a mom of two really little ones, so
I don't get out much," Healy said. "This is
a big change for me."
With a cup of Orange Blossom Pilsner
in her hand, Healy said the beer sampling
was her favorite part of the event.
"I don't buy a whole six pack of some-
thing I've never tried before," Healy said,
"so it's a nice way to see what I like."
"My favorite kind of beer is free
beer. And there's a lot of it here."
Ron Stevenson
third-year attendee of Beerfest

This year was the third time the festi-
val was held in October. It was previously
held in March.
"Something this much fun can't be
done just once a year," said Chuck Fazio,
one of the event coordinators.
Dressed in a faded Marines T-shirt,
shorts and a straw hat, Fazio walked
through the crowds taking pictures, start-
ing conversations with strangers and mak-
ing sure everything went smoothly.
"Everybody comes and enjoys them-
selves," Fazio said.
"You just walk around and see every-
body's got a smile on, and why not? Beer,
food delicious."
Proceeds from the festival, which cost
$25 in advance and $30 at the gate, went to
the Alachua County Humane Society a
tradition in its third year.
"It's our way of giving back," Fazio
said.

Dove World Outreach Center protests gay festival


By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Writer

Saturday, Oct. 3
12:30 p.m.: Across from Fran In-
gram lies a pile of white signs that
read, "Homo leads to Hell" and
"God loves you, but..."
Ingram, along with about 25
other members of the Dove World
Outreach Center, prepared the signs
to hoist while marching alongside
Gainesville's LGBT community at
Saturday's Pride Parade.
Ingram said her favorite sign is
one that she has used often at past
demonstrations: "Repent."
"Walk into any bookstore and
see how much they dump shit on
Jesus," she said. "I feel so sad that
these people have chosen a life-
style that brings societal and eternal
death."
For Ingram, Saturday was more
than getting recognition; it was
about getting people saved. For the
members of DWOC, it's about pay-
ing the price for redemption.
Ten-year-old Faith Sapp, whose
father, Wayne, is a pastor at the
church, is familiar with paying for
her views. On her second day of fifth
grade, Sapp noticed that nobody
would play with her, she said. When
she confronted her classmates, they
told her that their parents forbade
them from talking to "that girl from
the church."
"It didn't feel right," she said.
"I've known these people for years,
and it was like they just disappeared.
[Friendship] doesn't just grow legs
and walk away."
But Sapp remains convinced they
are preaching is God's message.
"Bible clearly states that a man
shall not lie with another man,"
she said. "It's Adam and Eve not
Adam and Steve."
According to Ingram, the church
has no choice but to speak out.
"Keeping to ourselves is simply
not an option," she said. "On judg-
ment day, God will hold us account-
able if we choose to be negligent."
1:05 p.m.: The crowd of worship-
ers, adorned in its trademark "Islam
is of the Devil" shirts, stands in a
circle waiting for their leader, the
Rev. Terry Jones, to emerge from the
church's doors. The fervor that ran


through them minutes before turns
to solemnity as Jones makes his way
to address the crowd.
"We're looking for a few people
who want to find a way out of this
lifestyle," said Jones, who has a
movie poster of "Braveheart" hang-
ing in his office as inspiration.
"It may get nasty; homosexuals
can be very aggressive. Now is your
chance to back out," he said.
But no one moved. After a quick
prayer that has church members
looking toward the sky and speak-
ing in tongues, they pile into a white
van and Sapp's truck and trek down
U.S. Route 441, bound for the Bo
Diddley Community Plaza.
1:35 p.m.: After pulling their


signs from the van, the congregants
begin to make the journey down
East Third Street. Gainesville Police
Lt. Keith Kameg, who is on detail
for the Pride Festival, quietly meets
with Jones and Sapp and lays out
the guidelines: Marching on the
sidewalk across the street from the
plaza is allowed; going through the
gates of the plaza is not.
Respectfully, Jones and Sapp
agree and lead their flock around
the plaza, holding their signs high
up for all to see. Onlookers see the
white shirts and take aim.
"Make way for God's chosen
people!"
"You should be ashamed of
yourselves."


"Go bum some more witches!"
As they make their way around
the plaza, others join to march with
them but not for them.
James Davis and Wylie Lenz,
UF English graduate students, tail
the church in silent mock devotion,
holding up signs with biblical pas-
sages that call for the ban of shellfish
and the cutting off of a woman's
hand should she touch a man's geni-
tals during a fight among the men.
"They seem to have a lot of mis-
directed energy," said Davis, who
is gay. "They're marching right
by where a lot of homeless people
live, and they're concerned with ro-
mantic partners. That doesn't make
sense to me."


Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff
Martin Boecken, 15, holds a sign during Dove World Outreach Center's protest of the Pride Festival Sat-
urday at the Bo Diddley Community Plaza. The members marched around the plaza during the festival.


According to Lenz, the protest-
ers' message is one of violence.
"I'm not even gay, and this is
pissing me off," he said.
1:55 p.m.: What started out as a
few people has morphed into a thick
following, as a herd marches along-
side those protesting the protesters.
Gays, lesbians, bisexuals and trans-
genders surround Jones and con-
gregants, hoping to draw response.
"We're used to the heat, Chris-
tians; after all, we're going to hell
anyway," yelled Joel Bryant, who
was voted Miss University Club.
"You know Jesus had two daddies."
According to Bryant, his eternal
fate has already been decided.
"I'm going to hell in a handbas-
ket that is fierce and bedazzled," he
said.
Congregants continue to march.

"It may get nasty;
homosexuals can be very
aggressive."
Rev. Terry Jones
leader of DWOC

2:45 p.m.: The resistance follow-
ing has mostly tapered off. The noise
coming from the plaza, which was
raging with throbbing music when
the Pride Festival began, has settled
down. Drivers in passing cars con-
tinue to shake their heads at the
church and shout from windows.
"It's funny that those who want
us to be 'more tolerant' are the ones
who are yelling," the elder Sapp
said.
The sun is beginning to wear on
the sign-holders. After a few more
walks around the plaza, they decide
to call it a day.
"This isn't about winning and
losing," Jones told his followers. "To-
day is about doing what's right."
Although none of the revelers
renounced their lifestyle, DWOC
members aren't disheartened.
"What we're doing isn't mean,"
said AndyBoecken, 17,whomarched
alongside his family. "What would
really be mean is if we didn't offer
them salvation."
3:20 p.m.: Having offered all the
salvation they could muster, church
members trudge back to their cars,
exhausted but satisfied.


This year's parade marks 40th anniversary of gay rights movement


PRIDE, from page 1


Terry Fleming, co-president of the Pride
Community Center of North Central Florida,
spoke about the importance of Saturday's
events.
"We are your family, your friends, your
neighbors. We are just a fabric of today's so-
ciety," Fleming said. "As long as there is dis-
crimination against gay and lesbian people,
there's a need for these events."
This year's Gainesville Pride Parade
marked the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall
riots in New York City, a series of riots against
police officers who frequently raided known
gay establishments and considered to be the
genesis of the modem gay rights movement.
Donnie Fields, vice president of program-
ming for UF's Pride Student Union, spoke
about the adversity that the Lesbian, Gay,
Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning
community still faces after 40 years.
"Our community has had a very tir-


ing year. Proposition 8, Amendment 2 and
Amendment 1 have tried forcing us back into
the closet," said Fields, respectively referring
to the amendment that banned gay marriage
in California and the amendment that de-
fined Florida marriage as the union between
a man and woman, as well as the proposed
amendment to the Gainesville City Charter
that would have removed the words "sexual
orientation" and "gender identity" from the
city's nondiscrimination policy.
Nestled in booths around the commu-
nity plaza were vendors ranging from the
American Automobile Association and the
Gainesville Rabbit Rescue to UF's Pride Stu-
dent Union.
Mayor candidate Craig Lowe, who is a
chairman for the city's Equal Opportunity
Committee, manned a booth, handing out but-
tons and talking to Gainesville residents.
"Today's a day where Gainesville can cel-
ebrate diversity and the contributions of the
lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender popu-
lation in Gainesville," Lowe said as he looked


onward at the large rainbow balloon arc that
enshrouded the stage to the community pla-
za.
Those taking the stage at the Gainesville
Pride festival Saturday included Trinity Met-
ropolitan Community Church's choir and
University Club female impersonators Lady
Pearl, Jawanna Jackson and Kelcy Divine.
Divine, dressed in a knee-length black
dress with size 13 silver high heels, held her
poodle-Chihuahua mix, Coco Chanel, in her
arm as she walked.
Local Anthony Kelley and his part-
News ner, Charles Kelley, who were
married in California before
Proposition 8 was passed and who also hold
a domestic partnership in Florida, responded
to protesters as they held their dogs, Luna and
Astro, who were dressed in a pink leotard and
a striped polo shirt, respectively.
"There is no but. God loves everyone," An-
thony Kelley said.
"Isn't the saying, 'God loves you no matter
what?'" Charles Kelley said.


The couple, who have been together for six
years, have their marriage certificate hung on
the west side of their house and their domestic
partnership certificate hung on the east side of
their house.
"I work for a company where my boss is
gay, and I'm gay; and I can't carry [Charles] on
my insurance," Kelley said as he spoke about
the differences granted to domestic partners
and married couples.
Parade organizers from the Pride Commu-
nity Center of North Central Florida were un-
able to give an estimate of the festival's actual
cost, but Bob Woods, communications and
marketing manager for the city of Gainesville,
said that police costs totaled $3,946 last year
and were expected to be about the same this
year.
GPD spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg said the
17 police officers on duty experienced no prob-
lems with any participants or protesters.
"Everybody has peacefully got along,"
Kameg said. "That's what we want to see. It's
a festival. People should have fun."

these are reasons why more things
go wrong in the colder months."
Davis said that inwarmer months,
brush fires are the major culprits.
Although Davis said fires are more
likely in the cooler months, there is
not one group or demographic that
is responsible for the outbreak of the
fires that do start.
"Last fall, there was a fire in a stu-
dent apartment, in a residential area
and in an office for Peaceful Paths.
It is not general to one population,"
Davis said. "Fire is not discrimina-
tory. It doesn't just affect one par-
ticular group."
Davis offered examples of how
anyone can stay safe from fires.
"Be careful while cooking, and
don't let your sleeves hang over
burners," she said.
Davis said the most important tip
is installing smoke alarms.

who cannot afford them.
"It's been a years-long program.
Lowe's usually donates smoke
alarms and carbon monoxide detec-
tors once a year," Davis said.
Activities for the week include an
open house today at Fire Station 21
in the City of Alachua, a Fire Safety
Expo in Hawthorne on Tuesday and
a Family Fun Night at the McDon-
ald's at Hunters Crossing, 5110 NW
43rd St., on Thursday. There will
be fire safety information and chil-
dren's activities at all events.
Also joining forces in this year's
National Fire Prevention Week is
the Florida Division of Forestry.
Ludie Bond, wildfire mitigation
specialist for the division, added that
as the fall season begins, there will
be more chances for fires to spread
because of less humidity and rain.
But fall is not as big of a concern

as winter and spring, Bond said.
Fires start more easily then because
grasses are even drier.
"Even though humidity levels
have been down lately, we don't
have dusty winds; and we aren't
dry," Bond said. "It's not time to be
alarmed just yet. We're just starting
to raise awareness with the general
public."
Bond said the most important
tips for staying fire-safe are to be
aware of the weather on the days
that residents are outside and not to
bum anything when it is windy or
humidity levels are low.
According to Bond, it is ille-
gal for an individual to set a fire in
Gainesville. A group of people, for
example, is not allowed to have a
bonfire inside Gainesville's city lim-
its. She said that if residents have
questions about whether burning is
legal, they should contact the local
fire department or the Division of
Forestry to find out.


Promotional Material provided by:


Typically, National Fire Preven-
tion Week focuses on how to keep
structures like houses safe. The
wildfire agencies also like to take the
opportunity to put out wildfire pre-
vention messages as the end of the
year approaches, Bond said.
"We're moving into the time of
the year where people will want to
be outside and start fires with cooler
weather and with that comes the
concern for wildfires," Bond said.
Each year, Gainesville Fire Res-
cue responds to more than 15,000
calls including building fires and
brush fires, according to a depart-
ment report.
According to Smoke Signals,
Gainesville Fire Rescue's newsletter,
in June 2009, 10 percent of all calls
were fire-related. In July 2009, 5 per-
cent of all calls were fire-related.
According to the 2008 Annual
Report, Gainesville Fire Rescue em-
ployed 66 firefighters and 33 driver
operators to help keep the city safe.

UF opens lacrosse stadium with pair of exhibition wins

0 THE GATORS FEATURE THE COUNTRY'S TOP
RECRUITING CLASS.

By TONI-ANN MILLER
Alligator Writer

Amanda O'Leary and UF's athletic department
had a dream. A dream of what UF's first women's la-
crosse program could be. A dream they sold to more
than 20 young women. On Saturday, they watched
the final piece of the puzzle fall into place.
O'Leary, the women's lacrosse coach, stood on the
sidelines for the inaugural game in the newly con-
structed stadium, located on Hull Road across from
the Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium.
UF competed in two exhibition games and won
both, defeating Jacksonville 22-4 and topping Rollins
27-6.
"It gave me goose bumps," O'Leary said. "When
you step on the field and you see them in their uni-
forms and you hear the national anthem, to see it all
come to fruition is really exciting."
On the field for UF on Saturday was the country's
No. 1 recruiting class, according to Inside Lacrosse
Magazine. The group consists of 29 women, 24 of
whom are registered freshmen.
With UF's program only a dream during recruit-
ing, O'Leary simply shared that vision with the ath-
letes she wanted to join the program. That, coupled
with each player meeting Athletics Director Jeremy
Foley, did the job. Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
"We decided that we would have this dream. UF midfielder Samantha Farrell makes a goal during the Gators' 27-6 exhibition win against Rollins on Saturday. The
SEE LAX, PAGE 19 Gators played their first-ever lacrosse games on Saturday. Florida also defeated Jacksonville 22-4.


Wildcats hand Gators first regular-


season loss at home since 2004


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer
achlang@alllgator org

After losing their first regular-season home match
since 2004, the Gators wasted no time starting a new
streak.
No. 5 Florida cruised by Tennessee (10-5, 3-2 South-
eastern Conference) on Sunday 3-0 (25-20,25-19,25-21)
to bounce back from a rare home loss to No. 15 Ken-

Despite the win Sunday, the loss against Kentucky
(15-1, 5-0 SEC) has put Florida in an unfamiliar posi-
tion- second place. UF (11-2,5-1 SEC) now finds itself
in danger of not winning the SEC for the first time in
19 seasons despite Kelly Murphy's third triple-double
of the season Friday.
"The attitude has to change. After Friday, we have
no choice but to be on our way back up," junior oppo-


site hitter Lauren Bledsoe said. "That was pretty much
rock bottom for us, and the whole rest of the season
we are going to be working our way back up."

The heartbreaking defeat may have made UF's road to a

bit tougher, but it also made the road to UF's first-ever national
championship a little bit easier.
For years, coach Mary Wise has said the

The Gators haven't advanced to the Final
Four since 2003, and they have only made
one championship game during the last 18 years despite advanc-

Every year since Wise took over in 1991, Florida has been the
class of its conference but never a national champion.
Those 18 banners certainly look pretty hanging in the team's

Wise had the attention of middle blocker
Cassandra Anderson when she called upon
her to start the match as the team's server, a
role she has never had to fill.
"That was my first time serving first, so
I was a little surprised, but I liked doing it,"
Anderson said.
Although it was her first time, it might
not be the last time she is put in that po-
sition. Anderson led a 7-0 run to start the
second set, as she kept putting pressure
on the Volunteers by keeping her serve in
bounds.
"There aren't a lot of middle blockers in
the country that serve," Wise said. "It could
very easily be that we decide to start Cas-
sandra right back to begin with her serve. It
would be a pretty good offensive weapon -
right out of the gate."

Lacrosse players swayed by Gators' facilities, atmosphere

The dream was that we were
gonna provide them with a
first-class facility, and that
we were gonna have all the
resources available to them
to have them compete at the
highest level," O'Leary said.
"So, they just had to buy into
a dream of what we were
gonna do for them."
The athletes who bought
into the dream were not dis-
appointed, traveling from
states including Maryland
and New York to join a pro-
gram that was being con-
structed from the ground up.
UF's new lacrosse facility
has two fields, one for games


and the other for practice.
The 1,500-seat stadium
also includes a locker room,
a training room and equip-
ment storage rooms for the
players' comfort.
"The facility is beautiful;
our athletic department, they
spoiled us," freshman Janine
Hillier said.
"We knew that we were
gonna get an outstanding fa-
cility (because of) Jeremy Fo-
ley. We trusted him, and he
came out with probably one
of the best facilities in the
country."
Sophomore Rachael Zim-
merman, who played one
year at North Carolina but
took a year off prior to com-
ing to UF, said when she


came to Gainesville for her
visit, the reputations of UF
and the Southeastern Confer-
ence made her decision easy.
She said she was "in awe"
of how UF's athletic teams
were funded
a and sup-
ported, and
she was con-
Lacrosse fident that
"if the Gators
are gonna do
something, they're gonna do
it right."
"For me, I don't know if
I'm a sucker, but it was pret-
ty damn easy," Zimmerman
said.
"We came down here,
there wasn't even a facility
built, but looking at the foot-


ball teams and the basketball
teams and just the SEC in
general, we knew that Jer-
emy Foley wouldn't let us
down."
With the roster she has
and the hard work the team
has put in, O'Leary has high
expectations for UF's first-
ever team.
UF will continue its inau-
gural fall schedule with more
exhibitions.
Next up is the Princeton
Tournament on Oct. 17,
when the Gators will face
top teams such as Syracuse,
UNC, Princeton and North-
western the five-time de-
fending NCAA champions.

and lack of a true rival.
There hasn't been another school to
push the Gators to the top of the moun-
tain, and that's why fans shouldn't be too
down that Kentucky was able to hand UF
just its second regular-season conference
home loss in the Wise era.
"The level of play makes us a better
team," Wise said after the match. "I hope
our fans will stick with us. They're in new
territory, but they've also been clamor-
ing for the SEC to get better. Well, guess
what? The SEC is, and it's not getting any
easier Sunday."
It did get easier Sunday, as UF rolled to
a 3-0 defeat of Tennessee, but the message
rings true regardless.
The Gators need the Wildcats or
any other SEC school to prepare them
for the championship run that has eluded
them to this point.
Sophomore setter/outside hitter/
baller Kelly Murphy is good enough to
lead UF to its first national championship
before she leaves Gainesville, but so were
plenty of other players who have suited
up for Wise.
Matches like the one on Friday night
will teach her and the rest of her team-
mates how to play in and eventually
win close matches against quality op-
ponents.
And that's something many of the
great players who have come through the
program never had the opportunity to
learn.
Senior libero Elyse Cusack, for instance,
had never lost in the O'Dome in her entire
career until Friday night.
"The SEC is definitely making a name
for itself now," Cusack said. "Every match,
we know we have to play hard. Kentucky
has definitely picked up the level of the
SEC, and now, we're a conference to be
reckoned with."
So what if the loss keeps the Gators
from their 19th straight SEC title?
I'm sure they would be happy to trade
it for their first national championship,
even if it takes a few more losses like this
one to get there.

UFSOCCER

Poor weather plays role in Gators' winless weekend


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer
etorrens@allgator org

Out of the mud and into the rain.
On Friday night in Starkville, Miss., the UF
soccer team (8-4-1, 2-1-1 Southeastern Confer-
ence) battled a muddy field and came away
with a 1-1 tie against Mississippi State (8-2-2,
0-2-2 SEC).
Sunday in Oxford, the team played in a con-
stant downpour that lasted the whole game
and lost to Ole Miss 3-2 in double overtime.
"Is (rain) a factor? Yeah, but that doesn't
mean that's the reason that we lost the game,"
UF coach Becky Burleigh said. "Whenever the
field isn't in good shape, it's problematic for
the way that we play."
Burleigh said her team was able to play
its possession-style game well in the first half
Sunday, but conditions worsened in the sec-
ond half as the rain kept falling.


Amid the deluge, Sunday's match played
out like a rollercoaster.
After a scoreless first half in which the
Gators played their style of play as well as the
conditions allowed, the Rebels (8-3-0, 2-1 SEC)
got on the board in the 61st minute when Han-
nah Weatherly took a header by UF's Jessica
Eicken, who was attempting to clear the ball,
and ripped it into the back left of the goal from
9 yards out.
"It's one of those unfortunate things that
happens where you do what you're supposed
to, but it just doesn't work out the way you
planned," Eicken said. "I did everything I
could."
Goalkeeper Katie Fraine said the team felt
confident about responding from a 1-0 deficit.
Less than two minutes later, Brooke Thig-
pen did answer, tying the game off a shot from
the left side from 12 yards out to the far post.
The Gators scored again in the 78th minute
when Tahnai Annis headed in a ball serviced


by teammate Tricia Townsend.
"Honestly, when we went 2-1, I thought
that we were going to win," Burleigh said.
Ole Miss roared back to life in the 84th min-
ute when Kelsey Breathitt off teammate
Taylor Cunningham's serve
beat Fraine to net one to-
ward the back post.
Eicken said the team
may have been playing too
passive with the lead.
"We were pushing back
instead of going forward
Burleigh and trying to get another
goal," she said.
The Rebels applied pressure all game, tak-
ing 13 shots to the Gators' five in the second
half. Despite the number of opportunities Ole
Miss had, it failed for the most part to capital-
ize on any of them.
With the late tying goal, the Rebels forced
overtime, sending the Gators into extra time


for the second straight match.
It looked like UF might score the golden
goal, with three corer kicks within a three-
minute span in the first overtime period, but
none of the chances were converted.
Ole Miss took advantage in the 102nd min-
ute, when Danielle Johnson took a free kick
from 19 yards out that Abbie Curan headed in
for the Rebels win.
UF's defense was missing senior Lauren
Hyde (fever) and Kathryn Williamson, who
came out after two minutes of play due to her
ankle. Burleigh said UF's depth allowed her to
plug in other people who have played in those
defensive positions before.
The loss drops UF to 1-2-1 in overtime this
season and 1-3-1 on the road. Burleigh said
she isn't worried about any perception that
her team can't win on the road.
"I think our team will be fine in the long
run," she said.
A radio broadcast contributed to this report.


Women finish third behind pair of top-10 runners


* THE MEN HAD A DISAPPOINTING
17TH-PLACE FINISH.

By JESSICA BETTER
Alligator Writer

Two personal bests were good enough
to crack the top 10 at the Notre Dame Invi-
tational as well as the UF record books.
The No. 15 women's team finished in
third place at the meet thanks to top-10
finishes by Stacey Johnson and Charlotte
Browning.


Johnson, who finished sixth, competed
in her first race for the Gators and ran the
5K course in 16:41, the fourth-best time re-
corded by a UF woman. Browning, who
finished ninth, also recorded a new per-
sonal best of 16:59, the eighth-best time in
UF history.
Redshirt sophomore Rebecca Lowe
competed in her first cross country race
since 2007 and finished 22nd with a time of
17:11.
"Everything is coming together," coach
Todd Morgan said after the race Friday.


"It's great to have Rebecca back, and it was
a great first race for Stacey."
Overall, five of the nine women runners
recorded new personal-best
times during the race.
The women's team fin-
ished with 104 points, be-
Cross hind No. 1 Washington (33)
Country and No. 6 Princeton (68).
The unranked men's team
was far from finishing like the women's
team. The men finished in 17th place with
386 points. No. 22 Washington took first in


the men's race as well.
Anthony Morales was the first Gator to
cross the finish line during the 5-mile race
and finished 38th with a time of 24:30.
Morales was also the first UF runner to
finish during the Mountain Dew Invitation-
al in September, when he finished second
overall.
"It wasn't a great day for the men," Mor-
gan said. "We need to get back together
and get things back on track. We need to
build off of this and get ready to go very
quickly."

You Decide. -1 MONDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2009 About 4,500 attend local Pride Parade 0 EVENT LASTED 8 HOURS. By JARED MISNER Alligator Writer University Avenue was quiet with only the sound of the sporadic train of speeding cars breaking the silence of an unusually warm October afternoon. Until 1:09 p.m. Running nine minutes late, Gainesville Police Department began to block the eastbound lanes of University Avenue for the ninth annual Gainesville Pride Parade Saturday. As rainbow-infused stars and stripes were unfurled, and parade marchers began to move east on West University Avenue to the Bo Diddley Community Plaza, the noise began. Cars honked in support. Marchers shouted for equality. The Sister Sledge song "We are Family," Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" and "The Nicest Kids in Town" from the musical "Hairspray" blared from floats adorned with pastel-colored balloons and rainbow banners and streamers. Two petite elderly women held hands as they walked in front of a massive motor home draped with rainbow streamers, honking its thunderous horn in support of diversity. The Pride Community Center of North Central Florida led the stream of paraders, closely followedbyUF's Pride Student Union, The Univermatt Iripp / Aligator btan Participants in the LBGT Pride Festival parade down University Avenue for the opening of the festival on Saturday afternoon. sity Club, Buchholz High School's Gay Straight Alliance and the selfdescribed only feminist bookstore in Florida, Wild Iris Market. At 1:27 p.m., three GPD cars followed one of Trinity Metropolitan Community Church's two parade cars off University Avenue as the parade ended at Southeast First Street. As quickly as it began, University Avenue returned to normalcy. The Bo Diddley Community Plaza, however, was alive with pride and festooned with a vast array of rainbow balloons, banners and an estimated 4,500 attendees of all sexual orientations until 9 p.m. Saturday. The smells of Gainesville's own Kickin'Devil Caf's spicy jambalaya and char-grilled quesadillas mixed with the sweat of festival attendees filled the air. Ben Collins, a member of Trinity Metropolitan Community Church, was one of those in attendance. Collins, who wore a purple Tshirt with the words "Friends of a feather flock together" imprinted on the front spray-painted his hair pink and added gold and silver glitter for the event. SEE PRIDE, PAGE 9 STUDENT GOVERNMENT SG responds to low turnout By CAROLYN TILLO Alligator Writer There are 14 million reasons why students should have voted in this fall's Student Government elections. Although all students contribute the funds that make up SG's $14 million budget, only 17 percent showed up to have their say as to where the money goes. Out of the 49,679 students at UF, 8,483 voted. "They don't think it affects them," said SG Supervisor of Elections Ariana Alfonso. "They're very apathetic of the whole situation." Alfonso said turnout this fall was higher than expected for a year without a national election. The hype around last fall's presidential election brought a turnout of 10,469 students. Alfonso said she wishes students would use SG elections as a way to develop good voting habits so they can participate in elections outside m Midfielder Samantha Farrell (right) is one of 24 freshmen on UF's lacrosse team, which won its first two exhibition matches Saturday.

He said students tend not to vote because they don't know the issues or the candidates. Progress Party President Dave Schneider said filling in a ballot often represents the only interaction students have with their representatives. Schneider said students feel alienated from SG because they see it as an elite clique that hangs out on the third floor of the Reitz Union and fails to reach out to them. When parties do make themselves known during election week, they come out in full force. UF sophomore Philip Osorio said he feels bombarded by campaigners and confused when all three parties congregate in the same area. "It just clusters up in your mind," Osorio said.

4, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2009 Annexation could up residents' taxes By PATRICK ANNESTY Alligator Writer City officials addressed the concerns of people living within a 1,200-acre stretch of land that may be annexed at a meeting Saturday. About 15 county residents attended the meeting, and representatives from Gainesville Regional Utilities, the police department, public works, and planning and development were all on hand to inform voters. The land, east of Morningside Nature Center, is estimated to contain about 3,000 people, according to Karen Billings, director of strategic planning for the city. Tax increases were a main concern of residents at the meeting. Billings presented figures showing a property valued at $35,000 would have a tax increase of $41.24 per year. A property worth $80,000 would see a $94.26 annual increase. However, these increases would be balanced by a reduction in surcharges on Local utility bills, Billings News said. Currently, GRU customers outside the city pay a 25-percent surcharge on water and wastewater and a 10-percent surcharge on electricity and gas. Residents also inquired about the possible switch from septic tanks to city waste systems and the availability of bus routes in the area. For more meeting details and resident concerns, please visit Alligator.org. LOCAL NEWS Students race to make films By BEATRICE DIEHL Alligator Contributing Writer Twenty-four hours, three guidelines, six films, one winner. The Reitz Union Board kicked off All Around Gainesville Week with a 24Hour Film Rush on Saturday, when student teams created films under certain conditions in just 24 hours. This year, each film had to include a local Gainesville event, a person who represents Gainesville and the line, "What, you haven't been to X-Mart before?" This year's winning film, "The Jogger," will be screened before each of RUB's showings of "The Hangover," playing nightly until Thursday. The winning team, named the Mustachioed Gentlemen, made its film about a stabbing. "I only slept an hour and a half. Half of us were doused in fake blood this morning in 60-something degree weather." Alex McQuiston participant The group has worked together before and has films on YouTube. Holding a small trophy, Alex McQuiston, part of the winning team, cracked an exhausted smile as he described the trials and tribulations the team had gone through. "I only slept an hour and a half," he said. "Half of us were doused in fake blood this morning in 60-something degree weather." John Rutherford, another team member, was cut by glass while playing a homeless man in the movie. The films were presented Saturday in the Reitz Union auditorium and were voted on by the audience. "The Videotape," a movie about a man confused with his life, won second place. Coming in third was "Whistlers of Men," a movie reminiscent of "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure," depicting two men rediscovering the art of whistling. RUB Director Abby Swartz has taken part in the film rush for the past two years but thought that the technical quality shown in this year's videos was particularly impressive. Swartz is excited to show the film next week as she expects a decent amount of students will go see "The Hangover." For exact dates and times the movie will be shown, visit www. union.ufl.edu/rub/index.php.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Fire Rescue gives tips to kids for Halloween safety Danica Spears/ Alligator Hannah Sealey, left, and Kierra Hall learn to dial 911 at the Alachua County Fire Rescue booth Saturday evening in Kiwanis Safety City for a Halloween party promoting safety by Gainesville Fire and Rescue. By ALISON SCHWARTZ Alligator Writer It took Pat Dean about an hour to get ready Saturday night. First, she put on a layer of white foundation, followed by glitzy blue fake eyelashes and a squishy, ruby nose. With the snap of her redstriped suspenders, she became Tootie the Fire Safety Clown. A member of Gainesville Fire Rescue, Dean was one of more than 300 who attended the third annual Halloween-themed Screaming for Safety event at Kiwanis Safety City. "Too many kids end up in the ER," Dean said. "Halloween is a very vulnerable time for everyone." Dean handed out balloons and painted princess and Gators designs on the faces of children trickor-treating at the event. But behind her smiley clown getup, she had a message. While painting, Dean talked to children about the dangers of playing with lighters, matches and candles, throwing in a brief lecture about the difference between tools and toys. About 20 organizations had tables and representatives at the event, including the Child Advocacy Center, Safe Kids and Operation Immunization. In trick-or-treat fashion, children donning costumes went to each table, scooping up candy and handouts about safety. Parents joined in on the fun, trailing behind their respective vampires and fairies while picking up pamphlets containing safety tips. Debora Regan, Safe Kids outreach coordinator, said Halloween is the deadliest day of the year for children younger than 14. Regan also handed out information about bicycle safety, reinforcing the importance of wearing a helmet. "I tell the kids, 'You can't go to Wal-Mart and get a new brain,"' she said. "'No more video games. You won't be able to Around drive a car. Your Gainesville life will change forever."' The event topped off with a costume contest, turning the south strip of Kiwanis Safety City into a catwalk for kids clad in homemade and store-bought costumes alike. Prizes included lollipops, T-shirts and flashlights. Jan Cheah's son John, 5, won the 3-to 5-year old category. Dressed as a Tyrannosaurus rex, he growled down the runway, crawling on his hands and knees at one point while making dinosaur-like gestures. "He thinks he's a T. rex," Cheah said. John nodded in agreement. But even T. rex isn't immune to the accidents that put a child's safety at stake. "We used to call things that happen accidents, but almost all accidents can be prevented. They're incidences," event coordinator Krista Gonzalez said. "So really, we want to prevent incidents from happening." Florida Best Buddies sees lack of community support 11 teams competed in the third annual scavenger hunt By KRISTEN BOWE Alligator Contributing Writer Stand in a grocery store freezer -140 points. Steal candy from a child -40 points. About 50 UF students participated in Florida Best Buddies third annual Midnight Madness Scavenger Hunt Saturday at Silver-Q Billiards & Sports bar. The 11 teams performed tasks at various spots around Gainesville documenting the completion of each list item with a photo. The teams raced around from 11 a.m. to 9:45 p.m. UF sociology major and Best Buddies member Bryan Rhodes, 20, said although he wanted to give up at times, his teammates, two mentally retarded children, helped keep him going. He said his buddies had so much energy that he did not want to let them down. Rhodes' team won the event with a total of 4,470 points. All the group members and their buddies received gift cards to Target. Jessica Dominguez, college programs manager for Best Buddies Florida, said the hunt "We were relying on the Greeks." Keely McKissack UFjunior was scheduled for spring but was postponed because of a lack of community support. Dominguez said Florida Best Buddies hoped to raise $7,000 this year. She said because of the bad economy it was difficult to receive sponsorship from the community. Best Buddies raised about $10,000 at the 2008 scavenger hunt and had more participants. She said it was difficult because there was no campus committee for the event. Instead, UF public relations junior and the event's recruitment chairwoman Keely McKissack was the only student in the Gainesville area in charge of organizing the event. McKissack said at the spring 2008 scavenger hunt there were 40 teams and half of the teams were from Greek organizations. "We were relying on the Greeks," she said. However, she said the Greek organizations were unresponsive this year. Student Government and The Center for Leadership a Service present.

6, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2009 Editorial H appy Monday! We successfully refrained from completing any of our class assignments this weekend, despite there not being a Gators football game to distract us. We even turned a blind eye to all current events. So, because we lack any opinions (and an opinions editor), we present you with an I've-never-seen-this-published-on-a-Monday edition of. Darts & Laurels Don't get used to it. In case of a zombie apocalypse, the Alligator is a great place to take shelter. There are enough rats hiding in the walls to sustain the staff, and no zombie knows the door code to get in the building. But we doubt many others have as safe a place to hide. That's why we were disappointed to hear that UF Web administrators took down a zombie attack plan PDF form created by e-Learning Support Services manager Doug Johnson. For not playing along in what was obviously a joke, we toss a DART at the "flesheating, life-impaired" e-Learning party poopers. While on the subject of rotting flesh, a small town in South Dakota has been faced with cleaning up a 44-ton pile of liquefied meat. The owner of the factory ditched the bison meat when he moved his business out of the state. Locals were stuck cleaning up the maggot-infested muck. Even the mayor of Bridgewater, who served two tours of duty in Vietnam, said he could not remember ever smelling something that awful, according to an article by the Associated Press. For not only wasting the lives of thousands of bison but also making the lives of Bridgewater locals a stinking hell, we throw a learn-to-clean-up-afteryourself DART at Ilan Parente, a.k.a. maggot meat man. In time for Halloween, construction workers have completed the new and improved campus bat house. The house can hold 400,000 bats, opposed to the 100,000 the old house was supposed to sustain. They even built a barn for baby bats and added a vacancy sign in both English and Spanish, in case Mexican free-tailed bats decided to stop by for a siesta. For batting a thousand on the new house, we give a these-digs-sound-better-than-our-freshman-dorms LAUREL at the bat house builders. While many celebrities use their Twitter accounts to talk about absolutely nothing (we don't care how much Spencer loves your lasagna, Heidi), Drew Carey is using his to raise money to fight cancer. Carey has bid $25,000 for the @Drew username. The account's current owner, who has lymphoma, plans to donate all of the money raised during the auction to the Livestrong foundation. Carey said he will increase his donation to $100,000 if he gets 100,000 followers by Nov. 9. For actually doing something useful with his Twitter account, we give a here's-hoping-75,000-more-followers-think-the-price-isright LAUREL to Drew Carey. On Wednesday, President Barack Obama signed an executive order banning government employees from texting while driving. We've all seen people swerving between lanes for the sake of 160 characters that could easily be said in less than 10 seconds in person. Eighteen states have banned texting while driving, and many more are considering similar laws. For not relying on Darwin's Law to keep roads free of distracted "drexters," we give a how-can-anyone-drivewhen-they're-not-looking-at-the-road LAUREL to President Obama. Don't be haters!

We have become a society that takes to the Internet more and more, not to discover new information or to collaborate with the information we have, but to vent our frustrations with our political differences, our stupid bosses, our inane teachers and our unruly kids. And, damn it, if it isn't making us all rude. But, Matt, you ask, where's your evidence? Look no further than YouTube. Glance below any video with more than 40,000 views, and I guarantee that after searching through the posted comments a treasure trove of online refuge will be found where a few users erupt over something as puerile as whether or not Borat is funny (he is) or if French first lady, Carla Bruni, puts Keith Richards to shame with her cover of "You Got the Silver" (she does). Online message board eruptions can be epic. Three years ago, when searching online for information about the prolific Irish author James Joyce, I stumbled upon a message board discussion between two factions -those who thought Joyce was the greatest Irish author of all time, better than both William Yeats and Oscar Wilde, and those who thought Joyce was toking when he wrote "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" -and by three hours into this spat, Northern Ireland unionists and nationalists users were at an ALL CAPS war with each other. Fortunately, there haven't been any major breaches in the brokered peace in Northern Ireland in the last three years. This doesn't mean that there aren't real life implications for online feuds that get out of hand. A Texas couple that was accused of sexual assault but later found not guilty by a Texas jury was verbally assaulted on the popular forum Web site Topix.com. There, anonymous users lashed out on the couple, accusing them of pedophilia and even murder. %m tact in e-arguments The couple, though, is getting the last post on the message forum, filing a defamation lawsuit against online users who believed they could hide behind their anonymous avatars. Through tracing IP addresses, Matthew Christ a handful of people had been issued letters@a ligator org subpoenas as of early August. But these are extreme cases. Most people aren't accused of sexual assault and then harangued publicly ad nauseam, and most people aren't subjected to the hate instilled by fervent fans of Joyce (because no one reads Joyce). What we all are subjected to, though, is online news Web sites. Both The New York Times and The Washington Times allow readers to post their "opinions" of a news story, and boy, does everyone have an opinion these days. Except you wouldn't know it because few online "commenters" are man (or woman) enough to put their names behind their self-revered profanity-laced thoughts. There's little harm in posting an outrageous comment on a message board or media site like YouTube. There's actually great entertainment value for the average Web visitor in viewing epic hissy fits lacking in punctuation. But one has to wonder what the future generations will think when they search Internet archives and see how their parents and grandparents treated each other when the norms of society were suspended with a cloak of online anonymity. Free speech is a hallmark of our society, but anonymous vulgar and degrading "comments" found online make me wonder if we're all suddenly living in one giant bathroom stall.

Letters to the Editor Friday opinions piece shows insensitivity Campaign season is nowhere near fun for anybody involved: the parties running, the candidates running and the Student Body. This year, I got lucky: I had a managerial economics exam on Wednesday night that required a bit more attention. However, I take deep offense with the Alligator's Editorial Board comparing campaign season to a "personal Trail of Tears" in Friday's "Darts & Laurels." This is incredibly insensitive to the thousands of Native Americans who were forced to relocate during this dark period of our country's history. It's annoying to be asked to support a party every few minutes on your way to class, but how dare you compare a minor displeasure to a period of ethnic cleansing? Most of us dislike being bothered on our way to class, but with barely 17 percent of the Student Body voting, what do you expect to happen? It makes me wonder if this paper's editorial staff even understands the repercussions of its writings, let alone the horrors that existed on the real Trail of Tears. If anything, it saddens me that the public school system has failed you so badly. Sean Johnson 4BA SG politics not surprising It was disheartening to read the article "Records reveal SG criminal charges" in the Sept. 29 issue of the Alligator.

Joyce Dewsbury Gainesville Resident U U U Democrats must compromise with opposition The latest installment in the Democratic Party's disappointing slew of failures occurred Tuesday when the public option for health insurance was voted down in the Senate Finance Committee. Five Democrats joined the Republicans in voting the option into oblivion. Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., the chairman of the committee, doesn't believe legislation that includes a public option will be able to get the 60 votes needed to overcome a Republican filibuster. Now, it's obvious he seeks to concede certain issues in order to pass the broader aspects of the plan. But even with his effort to draft a passable piece of legislation and this most recent conciliation, Baucus hasn't received confirmation of a single Republican vote. The only hope for Democrats is Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, who may vote in favor of the bill. According to a CBS News/New York Times poll, 72 percent of Americans support a public option for health insurance. So even with a 60 percent majority in the Senate and overwhelming public support, the Democratic Party is unable to stand its ground. Way to go, gang. The efforts of Democrats like Baucus to compromise with the opposition are commendable. It's time for Democrats to buck up and get this legislation passed without diluting it to the point of impotency. Tyler Horvath iLS S$ OFF Jiffy Lube Signature Service' Oil Change No Coupon Needed!

8, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, OCTOBER 5,2009 LOCAL Festival offers free beers By MARIA PIQUET Alligator Contributing Writer A 20-foot inflatable Red Stag bottle stood out among throngs of blue, white, gold and green canopies to show newcomers where to go. A line of people coiled around the Magnolia Parke parking lot, bustling with people eager to get into Saturday's Greater Gator Beer Festival. More than 1,000 people attended the festival, which provided guests with unlimited samples of food from local restaurants and more than 100 beers from around the world. Guests drank traditional beers like Samuel Adams and Budweiser and sampled others from countries around the world, including Ukraine, Italy, Israel and Guatemala. Participating companies hitched up their canopies on the Magnolia Parke field and equipped each with a handful of volunteers who constantly poured beer or served food to hungry guests. Beer poured from dozens of taps as guests devoured fried chicken, pizza, peanuts and pulled-pork sandwiches. Vintage beer T-shirts were also on sale. Beer culture was everywhere. Joey Westfield and Rick Stevenson wore matching 2-foot mug hats and golden beer-mug sunglasses and said they came for the beer and the women. "My favorite kind of beer is free beer," said Stevenson, a third-year attendee. "And there's a lot of it here." Westfield, on the other hand, has gone to every Beer Festival since it started in 1997 and has the event T-shirts to prove it. "This is my favorite time of the year," Westfield said. "There's nothing else like this around here." Tasha Healy attended the event for the first time. Her friend won tickets on the radio and invited her to come along. "I'm a mom of two really little ones, so I don't get out much," Healy said. "This is a big change for me." With a cup of Orange Blossom Pilsner in her hand, Healy said the beer sampling was her favorite part of the event. "I don't buy a whole six pack of something I've never tried before," Healy said, "so it's a nice way to see what I like." "My favorite kind of beer is free beer. And there's a lot of it here." Ron Stevenson third-year attendee of Beerfest This year was the third time the festival was held in October. It was previously held in March. "Something this much fun can't be done just once a year," said Chuck Fazio, one of the event coordinators. Dressed in a faded Marines T-shirt, shorts and a straw hat, Fazio walked through the crowds taking pictures, starting conversations with strangers and making sure everything went smoothly. "Everybody comes and enjoys themselves," Fazio said. "You just walk around and see everybody's got a smile on, and why not? Beer, food -delicious." Proceeds from the festival, which cost $25 in advance and $30 at the gate, went to the Alachua County Humane Society -a tradition in its third year. "It's our way of giving back," Fazio said.

"I feel so sad that these people have chosen a lifestyle that brings societal and eternal death." For Ingram, Saturday was more than getting recognition; it was about getting people saved. For the members of DWOC, it's about paying the price for redemption. Ten-year-old Faith Sapp, whose father, Wayne, is a pastor at the church, is familiar with paying for her views. On her second day of fifth grade, Sapp noticed that nobody would play with her, she said. When she confronted her classmates, they told her that their parents forbade them from talking to "that girl from the church." "It didn't feel right," she said. "I've known these people for years, and it was like they just disappeared. [Friendship] doesn't just grow legs and walk away." But Sapp remains convinced they are preaching is God's message. "Bible clearly states that a man shall not lie with another man," she said. "It's Adam and Eve -not Adam and Steve." According to Ingram, the church has no choice but to speak out. "Keeping to ourselves is simply not an option," she said.

The members marched around the plaza during the festival. This year's parade marks 40th anniversary of gay rights movement PRIDE, from page 1 Terry Fleming, co-president of the Pride Community Center of North Central Florida, spoke about the importance of Saturday's events. "We are your family, your friends, your neighbors. We are just a fabric of today's society," Fleming said. "As long as there is discrimination against gay and lesbian people, there's a need for these events." This year's Gainesville Pride Parade marked the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots in New York City, a series of riots against police officers who frequently raided known gay establishments and considered to be the genesis of the modern gay rights movement. Donnie Fields, vice president of programming for UF's Pride Student Union, spoke about the adversity that the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning community still faces after 40 years. "Our community has had a very tiring year. Proposition 8, Amendment 2 and Amendment 1 have tried forcing us back into the closet," said Fields, respectively referring to the amendment that banned gay marriage in California and the amendment that defined Florida marriage as the union between a man and woman, as well as the proposed amendment to the Gainesville City Charter that would have removed the words "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" from the city's nondiscrimination policy. Nestled in booths around the community plaza were vendors ranging from the American Automobile Association and the Gainesville Rabbit Rescue to UF's Pride Student Union. Mayor candidate Craig Lowe, who is a chairman for the city's Equal Opportunity Committee, manned a booth, handing out buttons and talking to Gainesville residents. "Today's a day where Gainesville can celebrate diversity and the contributions of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender population in Gainesville," Lowe said as he looked onward at the large rainbow balloon arc that enshrouded the stage to the community plaza. Those taking the stage at the Gainesville Pride festival Saturday included Trinity Metropolitan Community Church's choir and University Club female impersonators Lady Pearl, Jawanna Jackson and Kelcy Divine. Divine, dressed in a knee-length black dress with size 13 silver high heels, held her poodle-Chihuahua mix, Coco Chanel, in her arm as she walked. Local Anthony Kelley and his partNewS ner, Charles Kelley, who were married in California before Proposition 8 was passed and who also hold a domestic partnership in Florida, responded to protesters as they held their dogs, Luna and Astro, who were dressed in a pink leotard and a striped polo shirt, respectively. "There is no but. God loves everyone," Anthony Kelley said. "Isn't the saying, 'God loves you no matter what?' Charles Kelley said. The couple, who have been together for six years, have their marriage certificate hung on the west side of their house and their domestic partnership certificate hung on the east side of their house. "I work for a company where my boss is gay, and I'm gay; and I can't carry [Charles] on my insurance," Kelley said as he spoke about the differences granted to domestic partners and married couples. Parade organizers from the Pride Community Center of North Central Florida were unable to give an estimate of the festival's actual cost, but Bob Woods, communications and marketing manager for the city of Gainesville, said that police costs totaled $3,946 last year and were expected to be about the same this year. GPD spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg said the 17 police officers on duty experienced no problems with any participants or protesters. "Everybody has peacefully got along," Kameg said. "That's what we want to see. It's a festival. People should have fun." festival According to Lenz, the protesters' message is one of violence. "I'm not even gay, and this is pissing me off," he said. 1:55 p.m.: What started out as a few people has morphed into a thick following, as a herd marches alongside those protesting the protesters. Gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders surround Jones and congregants, hoping to draw response. "We're used to the heat, Christians; after all, we're going to hell anyway," yelled Joel Bryant, who was voted Miss University Club. "You know Jesus had two daddies." According to Bryant, his eternal fate has already been decided. "I'm going to hell in a handbasket that is fierce and bedazzled," he said. Congregants continue to march. "It may get nasty; homosexuals can be very aggressive." Rev. Terry Jones leader of DWOC 2:45 p.m.: The resistance following has mostly tapered off. The noise coming from the plaza, which was raging with throbbing music when the Pride Festival began, has settled down. Drivers in passing cars continue to shake their heads at the church and shout from windows. "It's funny that those who want us to be 'more tolerant' are the ones who are yelling," the elder Sapp said. The sun is beginning to wear on the sign-holders. After a few more walks around the plaza, they decide to call it a day. "This isn't about winning and losing,"Jones toldhis followers. "Today is about doing what's right." Although none of the revelers renounced their lifestyle, DWOC members aren't disheartened. "What we're doing isn't mean," said AndyBoecken, 17,whomarched alongside his family. "What would really be mean is if we didn't offer them salvation." 3:20 p.m.: Having offered all the salvation they could muster, church members trudge back to their cars, exhausted but satisfied.

Although Davis said fires are more likely in the cooler months, there is not one group or demographic that is responsible for the outbreak of the fires that do start. "Last fall, there was a fire in a student apartment, in a residential area and in an office for Peaceful Paths. It is not general to one population," Davis said. "Fire is not discriminatory. It doesn't just affect one particular group." Davis offered examples of how anyone can stay safe from fires. "Be careful while cooking, and don't let your sleeves hang over burners," she said. Davis said the most important tip is installing smoke alarms. As a part of National Fire Prevenly alarms and carbon monoxide detectors once a year," Davis said. Activities for the week include an open house today at Fire Station 21 in the City of Alachua, a Fire Safety Expo in Hawthorne on Tuesday and a Family Fun Night at the McDonald's at Hunters Crossing, 5110 NW 43rd St., on Thursday. There will be fire safety information and children's activities at all events. Also joining forces in this year's National Fire Prevention Week is the Florida Division of Forestry. Ludie Bond, wildfire mitigation specialist for the division, added that as the fall season begins, there will be more chances for fires to spread because of less humidity and rain. But fall is not as big of a concern dry," Bond said. "It's not time to be alarmed just yet. We're just starting to raise awareness with the general public." Bond said the most important tips for staying fire-safe are to be aware of the weather on the days that residents are outside and not to burn anything when it is windy or humidity levels are low. According to Bond, it is illegal for an individual to set a fire in Gainesville. A group of people, for example, is not allowed to have a bonfire inside Gainesville's city limits. She said that if residents have questions about whether burning is legal, they should contact the local fire department or the Division of Forestry to find out. g year approaches, Bond said. "We're moving into the time of the year where people will want to be outside and start fires with cooler weather and with that comes the concern for wildfires," Bond said. Each year, Gainesville Fire Rescue responds to more than 15,000 calls including building fires and brush fires, according to a department report. According to Smoke Signals, Gainesville Fire Rescue's newsletter, in June 2009, 10 percent of all calls were fire-related. In July 2009, 5 percent of all calls were fire-related. According to the 2008 Annual Report, Gainesville Fire Rescue employed 66 firefighters and 33 driver operators to help keep the city safe.

Sports MONDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2009 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF opens lacrosse stadium with pair of exhibition wins 0 THE GATORS FEATURE THE COUNTRY'S TOP RECRUITING CLASS. By TONI-ANN MILLER Alligator Writer Amanda O'Leary and UF's athletic department had a dream. A dream of what UF's first women's lacrosse program could be. A dream they sold to more 4N than 20 young women. On Saturday, they watched the final piece of the puzzle fall into place. O'Leary, the women's lacrosse coach, stood on the sidelines for the inaugural game in the newly constructed stadium, located on Hull Road across from the Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. UF competed in two exhibition games and won both, defeating Jacksonville 22-4 and topping Rollins 27-6. "It gave me goose bumps," O'Leary said. "When you step on the field and you see them in their uniforms and you hear the national anthem, to see it all come to fruition is really exciting." On the field for UF on Saturday was the country's No. 1 recruiting class, according to Inside Lacrosse Magazine. The group consists of 29 women, 24 of whom are registered freshmen. With UF's program only a dream during recruiting, O'Leary simply shared that vision with the athletes she wanted to join the program. That, coupled with each player meeting Athletics Director Jeremy Foley, did the job. Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff "We decided that we would have this dream. UF midfielder Samantha Farrell makes a goal during the Gators' 27-6 exhibition win against Rollins on Saturday. The SEE LAX, PAGE 19 Gators played their first-ever lacrosse games on Saturday. Florida also defeated Jacksonville 22-4. Wildcats hand Gators first regularseason loss at home since 2004 By ANTHONY CHIANG Alligator Writer a ch ia ng@a Iligator org After losing their first regular-season home match since 2004, the Gators wasted no time starting a new streak. No. 5 Florida cruised by Tennessee (10-5, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) on Sunday 3-0 (25-20,25-19,25-21) to bounce back from a rare home loss to No. 15 Kentucky on Friday 3-2 (25-9, 19-25, 25-23, 20-25, 11-15). Despite the win Sunday, the loss against Kentucky (15-1, 5-0 SEC) has put Florida in an unfamiliar position -second place. UF (11-2,5-1 SEC) now finds itself in danger of not winning the SEC for the first time in 19 seasons despite Kelly Murphy's third triple-double of the season Friday. "The attitude has to change. After Friday, we have no choice but to be on our way back up," junior opposite hitter Lauren Bledsoe said. "That was pretty much rock bottom for us, and the whole rest of the season we are going to be working our way back up." The match against Kentucky appeared to have "The attitude has to change. After Friday, we have no choice but to be on our way back up."

"We certainly had the players' attention," coach Mary Wise said. "There was never a lull in terms of SEE VOLLEY, PAGE 19 Loss has long-term value he Florida volleyball team's Friday night, five-set home loss to Kentucky is a great sign for Gators fans. The heartbreaking defeat may have made UF's road to a 19th straight regular-season Southeastern Conference title a little bit tougher, but it also made the road to UF's first-ever national championship a little bit easier. Kyle Maistri Kyle Points kmaistri@alligator org For years, coach Mary Wise has said the SEC needs to get better as a whole for the Gators to be the best team they can possibly be. Florida has made a habit of cruising through a conference schedule against opponents with far inferior talent before bowing out in the middle of the NCAA Tournament. The Gators haven't advanced to the Final Four since 2003, and they have only made one championship game during the last 18 years despite advancing to seven Final Fours. Every year since Wise took over in 1991, Florida has been the class of its conference but never a national champion. Those 18 banners certainly look pretty hanging in the team's practice facility, but they've really been nothing but a giant road block. The conference slate has done UF a disservice with its 3-0 wins SEE KYLE, PAGE 19 E The UF men's golf team tied for third at the Gary Koch Invitational.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 19 Bledsoe, Jaeckel lead offense against Tennessee VOLLEY, from page 17 execution or effort." Wise had the attention of middle blocker Cassandra Anderson when she called upon her to start the match as the team's server, a role she has never had to fill. "That was my first time serving first, so I was a little surprised, but I liked doing it," Anderson said. Although it was her first time, it might not be the last time she is put in that position. Anderson led a 7-0 run to start the second set, as she kept putting pressure on the Volunteers by keeping her serve in bounds. "There aren't a lot of middle blockers in the country that serve," Wise said. "It could very easily be that we decide to start Cassandra right back to begin with her serve. It would be a pretty good offensive weapon right out of the gate." Leading UF's offensive attack was Bledsoe, who racked up double-digit kills for the first time since Sept. 11 against South Florida. She finished Sunday's match with 10 kills to go along with a .500 hitting percentage. After only combining for six kills in her last three matches, Wise was happy with the increased physicality Bledsoe showed against Tennessee.

Bledsoe had 10 kills to help UF sweep Tennessee in the O'Dome. also finished the match with 10 kills and "To hit .299 against the best digging and nine digs, falling just short of a doubleblocking team in the league and to outblock double. the best blocking team in the league (seven Coming into the match, the Volunteers to five) is the statement of how well we sat atop of the SEC in digs and blocks, but played today," Wise said. they could not stop the Gators' attack. Lacrosse players swayed by Gators' facilities, atmosphere LAX, from page 17 The dream was that we were gonna provide them with a first-class facility, and that we were gonna have all the resources available to them to have them compete at the highest level," O'Leary said. "So, they just had to buy into a dream of what we were gonna do for them." The athletes who bought into the dream were not disappointed, traveling from states including Maryland and New York to join a program that was being constructed from the ground up. UF's new lacrosse facility has two fields, one for games and the other for practice. The 1,500-seat stadium also includes a locker room, a training room and equipment storage rooms for the players' comfort. "The facility is beautiful; our athletic department, they spoiled us," freshman Janine Hillier said. "We knew that we were gonna get an outstanding facility (because of) Jeremy Foley. We trusted him, and he came out with probably one of the best facilities in the country." Sophomore Rachael Zimmerman, who played one year at North Carolina but took a year off prior to coming to UF, said when she came to Gainesville for her visit, the reputations of UF and the Southeastern Conference made her decision easy. She said she was "in awe" of how UF's athletic teams were funded and supported, and she was conLacrosse fident that "if the Gators are gonna do something, they're gonna do it right." "For me, I don't know if I'm a sucker, but it was pretty damn easy," Zimmerman said. "We came down here, there wasn't even a facility built, but looking at the football teams and the basketball teams and just the SEC in general, we knew that Jeremy Foley wouldn't let us down." With the roster she has and the hard work the team has put in, O'Leary has high expectations for UF's firstever team. UF will continue its inaugural fall schedule with more exhibitions. Next up is the Princeton Tournament on Oct. 17, when the Gators will face top teams such as Syracuse, UNC, Princeton and Northwestern -the five-time defending NCAA champions.

There hasn't been another school to push the Gators to the top of the mountain, and that's why fans shouldn't be too down that Kentucky was able to hand UF just its second regular-season conference home loss in the Wise era. "The level of play makes us a better team," Wise said after the match. "I hope our fans will stick with us. They're in new territory, but they've also been clamoring for the SEC to get better. Well, guess what? The SEC is, and it's not getting any easier Sunday." It did get easier Sunday, as UF rolled to a 3-0 defeat of Tennessee, but the message rings true regardless. The Gators need the Wildcats -or any other SEC school -to prepare them for the championship run that has eluded them to this point. Sophomore setter/outside hitter/ baller Kelly Murphy is good enough to lead UF to its first national championship before she leaves Gainesville, but so were plenty of other players who have suited up for Wise. Matches like the one on Friday night will teach her and the rest of her teammates how to play in -and eventually win -close matches against quality opponents. And that's something many of the great players who have come through the program never had the opportunity to learn. Senior libero Elyse Cusack, for instance, had never lost in the O'Dome in her entire career until Friday night. "The SEC is definitely making a name for itself now," Cusack said. "Every match, we know we have to play hard. Kentucky has definitely picked up the level of the SEC, and now, we're a conference to be reckoned with." So what if the loss keeps the Gators from their 19th straight SEC title? I'm sure they would be happy to trade it for their first national championship, even if it takes a few more losses like this one to get there. PLANT A TREE

20, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2009 UF SOCCER Poor weather plays role in Gators' winless weekend By EUGENIO TORRENS Alligator Writer etorrens@a IIigato r org Out of the mud and into the rain. On Friday night in Starkville, Miss., the UF soccer team (8-4-1, 2-1-1 Southeastern Conference) battled a muddy field and came away with a 1-1 tie against Mississippi State (8-2-2, 0-2-2 SEC). Sunday in Oxford, the teamplayed in a constant downpour that lasted the whole game and lost to Ole Miss 3-2 in double overtime. "Is (rain) a factor? Yeah, but that doesn't mean that's the reason that we lost the game," UF coach Becky Burleigh said. "Whenever the field isn't in good shape, it's problematic for the way that we play." Burleigh said her team was able to play its possession-style game well in the first half Sunday, but conditions worsened in the second half as the rain kept falling. Amid the deluge, Sunday's match played out like a rollercoaster. After a scoreless first half in which the Gators played their style of play as well as the conditions allowed, the Rebels (8-3-0, 2-1 SEC) got on the board in the 61st minute when Hannah Weatherly took a header by UF's Jessica Eicken, who was attempting to clear the ball, and ripped it into the back left of the goal from 9 yards out. "It's one of those unfortunate things that happens where you do what you're supposed to, but it just doesn't work out the way you planned," Eicken said. "I did everything I could." Goalkeeper Katie Fraine said the team felt confident about responding from a 1-0 deficit. Less than two minutes later, Brooke Thigpen did answer, tying the game off a shot from the left side from 12 yards out to the far post. The Gators scored again in the 78th minute when Tahnai Annis headed in a ball serviced by teammate Tricia Townsend. "Honestly, when we went 2-1, I thought that we were going to win," Burleigh said. Ole Miss roared back to life in the 84th minute when Kelsey Breathitt -off teammate Taylor Cunningham's serve -beat Fraine to net one toward the back post. Eicken said the team may have been playing too passive with the lead. "We were pushing back instead of going forward Burleigh and trying to get another goal," she said. The Rebels applied pressure all game, taking 13 shots to the Gators' five in the second half. Despite the number of opportunities Ole Miss had, it failed for the most part to capitalize on any of them. With the late tying goal, the Rebels forced overtime, sending the Gators into extra time for the second straight match. It looked like UF might score the golden goal, with three corner kicks within a threeminute span in the first overtime period, but none of the chances were converted. Ole Miss took advantage in the 102nd minute, when Danielle Johnson took a free kick from 19 yards out that Abbie Curan headed in for the Rebels win. UF's defense was missing senior Lauren Hyde (fever) and Kathryn Williamson, who came out after two minutes of play due to her ankle. Burleigh said UF's depth allowed her to plug in other people who have played in those defensive positions before. The loss drops UF to 1-2-1 in overtime this season and 1-3-1 on the road. Burleigh said she isn't worried about any perception that her team can't win on the road. "I think our team will be fine in the long run," she said. A radio broadcast contributed to this report. Women finish third behind pair of top-10 runners 0 THE MEN HAD A DISAPPOINTING 17TH-PLACE FINISH. By JESSICA ETTER Alligator Writer Two personal bests were good enough to crack the top 10 at the Notre Dame Invitational as well as the UF record books. The No. 15 women's team finished in third place at the meet thanks to top-10 finishes by Stacey Johnson and Charlotte Browning. Johnson, who finished sixth, competed in her first race for the Gators and ran the 5K course in 16:41, the fourth-best time recorded by a UF woman. Browning, who finished ninth, also recorded a new personal best of 16:59, the eighth-best time in UF history. Redshirt sophomore Rebecca Lowe competed in her first cross country race since 2007 and finished 22nd with a time of 17:11. "Everything is coming together," coach Todd Morgan said after the race Friday. "It's great to have Rebecca back, and it was a great first race for Stacey." Overall, five of the nine women runners Cross Country recorded new personal-best times during the race. The women's team finished with 104 points, behind No. 1 Washington (33) and No. 6 Princeton (68). The unranked men's team was far from finishing like the women's team. The men finished in 17th place with 386 points. No. 22 Washington took first in the men's race as well. Anthony Morales was the first Gator to cross the finish line during the 5-mile race and finished 38th with a time of 24:30. Morales was also the first UF runner to finish during the Mountain Dew Invitational in September, when he finished second overall. "It wasn't a great day for the men," Morgan said. "We need to get back together and get things back on track. We need to build off of this and get ready to go very quickly."
