Mayoral candidate Craig Lowe awaits election results at the Supervisor of Elections Office on Tuesday
night.


By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Staff Writer

After Tuesday's city election,
Gainesville voters were hoping
to get a new mayor and city com-
missioner.
Instead, they're getting anoth-
er election.
In the race for Gainesville
mayor and a District 4 City
Commission seat, no candidate
received the 50-percent plus one
vote necessary to avoid a runoff.
The top two candidates in each
race will have to make their case
to the voters one last time.
In the mayoral race, City Com-
missioner Craig Lowe secured 40
percent of votes cast while local
business owner Don Marsh re-
ceived 29 percent.
"I'm very gratified by the re-
sults," Lowe said. "I'm very en-
ergized to continue a very posi-
tive, progressive, future-oriented
campaign.
In the District 4 City Com-
mission race, Randy Wells got
47 percent of the vote, topping
Penny Wheat's 37 percent.
With his wife by his side and
his daughter in his arms, Wells
expressed gratitude for his sup-


porters and vowed to continue
his outreach to voters.
"It's going to take more knock-
ing on doors," Wells said. "(Peo-
ple) won't be surprised to see
my face for the second or third
time."
The other candidates for city
commission were Mason Alley,
Pat Fitzpatrick and Nathaniel
Sperling, who collectively re-
ceived 15 percent of the vote.
"I'm very gratified by the
results. I'm very energized
to continue a very positive,
progressive, future-orient-
ed campaign."
Craig Lowe
mayoral candidate

Of the 72,623 registered voters
in Alachua County, 10,167, or 14
percent, cast their ballots.
Although the turnout was less
than the 25 percent that Alachua
County Supervisor of Elections
Pam Carpenter hoped for, it was
an increase from the 10.7 percent
of eligible voters who turned out
for the 2007 mayoral election.

By GABRIELLE FALCONEIRI
Alligator Contributing Writer

Singer, songwriter and pianist Ben Folds
will perform tonight at 8 at UF's Phillips
Center for the Performing Arts.
Folds was paid $35,240 for the show, ac-
cording to Student Government Finance.
The event is sponsored by Student Gov-
ernment Productions Music and Entertain-
ment and the Jewish Student Union.
They brought Folds to UF in honor of
Jewish Awareness Month.
"JAM immediately jumped on board at
the opportunity to co-sponsor this event as
one of the pinnacle events for their month,"
said Aaron Crespin, chairman of SGP Mu-
sic and Entertainment.


This is the singer's first appearance at
UF, Crespin said.
A native of Winston-Salem, N.C., Folds
has been part of the music scene for 15 years.
His former band, Ben Folds Five, recorded
three studio albums dur-
ing its seven years togeth-
er and is best known for
the single "Brick."
In September 2008,
Folds released his third
solo album titled "Way to
Folds Normal."
Tickets may be pur-
chased at the University Box Office.
Admission for students costs $14 and
$19 for the general public.

Students, faculty talk buses


By GLENN COINE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students are sick of waiting, and they're
tired of walking.
Students and UF faculty and staff ex-
pressed their transportation concerns at the
first of two forums Tuesday with UF and the
Gainesville Regional Transit System. The fo-
rum was held so residents to offer input for
consideration in the transportation compo-
nent of the 2010-2020 Campus Master Plan.
About 18 people attended the first fo-
rum.
Florida legislature requires state univer-
sities to submit a Campus Master Plan up-
date every five years, outlining project and
budget proposals. The transportation com-
ponent is funded separately but is being run
in coordination with the federally required
five-year update for the Gainesville Urban-
ized Area 2035 Long Range Transportation
Plan.
The Renaissance Planning Group, an in-
dependent consulting firm, has been con-
tracted by the university and by RTS to
manage these projects.
Whit Blanton, vice president of Renais-
sance and project manager for the transpor-
tation element of UF's plan, said the coor-


dination of the metropolitan and university
planning holds great advantages, particu-
larly cost efficiency.
According to Blanton, the university is
paying Renaissance a little over $100,000.
During the forum, Doug Robinson, chief
transit planner for Gainesville RTS, ad-
dressed areas for improvement within the
campus and metro bus systems like comfort,
convenience, reliability and sustainability.
He then discussed several proposed so-
lutions including bus rapid transit. This
would essentially be an express bus that
would run faster using dedi-
On cated lanes and/or the ability
Campus to change red lights or delay
green ones.
The possibility of a streetcar running
from campus to downtown was also men-
tioned, but as a long-term goal.
Audience members were asked to draw
in and make note of additions and revisions
they would like to see.
Blanton said students could expect to see
some changes as soon as the end of the year.
The bigger the change, he said, the longer it
will take.
Robinson said RTS is working on con-
verting the entire fleet of city buses to run
on biodiesel like the campus ones. He said
this should be completed by 2011.


Earth Day events kick off


* 40 DAYS OF CHANGE WILL

By DANIELLE PETERSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
Earth Day is celebrating its 40th
birthday, and Gainesville residents are
invited to a 40-day party.
The UF Office of Sustainability is
sponsoring 40 Days of Change, which
includes sustainability-focused ac-
tivities on campus and throughout the
Gainesville area.
Although Earth Day falls on April
22, the event ends April 24.
The campaign kicked off Tuesday
at the Reitz Union Colonnade and
North Lawn, where students partici-
pated in recycling-themed crafts and
learned about upcoming events.
Campaign activities include the 10-
day Gainesville Environmental Film
and Arts Festival at the Hippodrome
and walking tours of Paynes Prairie


every Thursday, said Stephanie Sims,
program assistant for the Office of Sus-
tainability.
"It's important to know
where food comes from,
where it goes and how it's
recycled."
Jordan Weinstein
intern at the Office of Sustainability

Jordan Weinstein, an intern at the
Office of Sustainability, promoted
Gators for a Sustainable Campus.
Weinstein said students should
pay attention to the sources of their
food and how it's made.
"It's important to know where food
comes from, where it goes and how it's
recycled," she said.
The Earth Day Celebration is April
21 on the Plaza of the Americas, where
President Bernie Machen will give the
annual State of Sustainability address.

Study suggests soda, pizza tax

By ANDREW PANTAZI Johnson, the restaurant's man- be implemented in the near future,
Alligator Contributing Writer ager. Johnson said it could possibly put
Although the tax is unlikely to Leonardo's Pizza out of business.
Some researchers want to fatten
pizza and soda costs in hopes that
it will slim America's waistline.
A study published Monday in
the Archives of Internal Medicine
argues for an 18 percent tax on
pizza and soda.
The study estimated the tax
would decrease calorie intake, on
average, by 56 calories daily.
"At the population level, de-
clines of 56 [calories] per day
would be associated with a reduc-
tion of roughly 5 [pounds] per
adult per year and significant re-
ductions in the risks of most obe-
sity-related chronic diseases," the
report wrote.
Maurice Marshall, a UF food
science professor, said while he
agrees America is facing health
issues, he doesn't believe pizza is
the biggest problem food.
"A pizza here and there has its
place, obviously in moderation,"
said Marshall. "I would pick on
savory snacks, chips and snacks
like that. At least a pizza has nutri-
tional value. You can buy a whole-
wheat crust, and it offers some
cheeses and some meats. Pizza has
a couple of things on the food pyr-
amid. I'm not sure what [potato
chips] offer in terms of nutritional
benefit."
David Denslow, a UF econom-
ics professor, compared the tax on .
soda to a tax passed on beer in the
early 1990s.
As for pizza, Denslow thinks
if a tax passed, pizza restaurants ,
would find ways to make "pizza-
like food" that is not called "piz- ...
za" to avoid the taxes.

Students urged to


complete Census

* ABOUT 63 PERCENT OF GAINESVILLE
RESIDENTS COMPLETED THE CENSUS IN 2000.

By MELINDA CARSTENSEN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Census forms started arriving in mailboxes this week,
and Alachua County officials are encouraging everyone,
including students, to participate by filling out and mail-
ing in the form that is required by law.
The Census, which is conducted every 10 years, deter-
mines how legislative districts will be drawn, how U.S.
House of Representatives seats will be apportioned and
how federal funds will be distributed.
Norman Sassner, local Census office manager, said it
is important that UF students participate because they at-
tend a state-run school.
"The more students participate, the more
Local [the] funds are going to increase by that
News number," Sassner said.
He added it's necessary students fill out
the form in Gainesville if that's where they are living,
even if it is not their permanent residence.
The 23rd census form, the shortest ever, contains 10
questions.
All information collected, including names, addresses
and phone numbers, is confidential, according to Sass-
ner.
About 63 percent of Gainesville residents participated
in the 2000 Census, which ties Florida's average participa-
tion rate but falls below the national average of 67 per-
cent, according statistics on the Web site for the Census'
Bureau.
Census workers make up to three trips to each home
that has not submitted a Census form between April and
July.
According to the Census Bureau Web site, regional
Census bureaus will deliver the Census information to
the president for apportionment in December.

Top prizesfor those who raise
the most money include a TV, an

Halpern said the cost of match-
ing bigs and little ranges from
$800 to $1,200 per pair.

Bad Barbie

New toy sends wrong

message to children
She's at it again. Our favorite anatomically incorrect ca-
reer hopper is adding another hobby to her already
formidable list promoting the purchase of animals.
Last week, Mattel announced a new Plush Pals line, fea-
turing Blissa the kitten, Lacey the Chihuahua puppy and
Sequin the poodle.
Well, in case you haven't noticed, shelters aren't exactly
overflowing with Chihuahua puppies and poodles.
The toys, 10-inch plushes with cramped, matching car-
riers, condition little girls to want designer dogs and treat
pets like accessories (and for Barbie, that's exactly what
they are).
Mattel could have easily presented the pets as rescued
animals. They could have invented past abuse or neglect
and allowed children to "save" them.
Instead, as usual, they took the cute, easy route and con-
tributed to the nationwide epidemic of animal overpopula-
tion. That's not even the only problem studies show that
purebred animals are less healthy than "mutts" or mixed
breeds. But we get it only the best for Barbie.
Until Americans acknowledge that it's a problem for ani-
mals to die in shelters while people (and dolls) buy pets, the
problem is not going to get better.
If Barbie had forgone the puppy mills and adopted a pit
bull, a mutt, or even an adult Chihuahua, we might feel dif-
ferently.
But once again, like when she got knocked up (we don't
see a commitment ring on those webbed fingers) or decided
to become a unicorn, Barbie made a dumb choice.



Mississippi Cruelboard


Congrats, Mississippi.
Your residents just
helped solidify the
backwards image many
Americans have of you.
Itawamba Agricultural
High Schoolin Fulton canceled
its April 2 prom on March
10, not for lack of funding or
space, but because Constance
McMillen, a lesbian student,
wanted to wear a tuxedo and
bring her girlfriend.
Although the school board
was probably just trying to
skirt the issue of denying the
two students' entry, its mem-
bers have unfairly punished
McMillen and the other stu-
dents. Halting the tradition
less than a month before the
scheduled date offers McMil-
len up to the actions of her
angered classmates, many of
whom already bought their
clothes for the event.
If the school board's ac-
tions don't count as intention-


al retaliation, they remain sad
reminders that people often
scratch their heads over how
to mesh tradition and mo-
dernity. And they sometimes
make the wrong decision.
In this case, officials
learned that when the rights
of a group of people are con-
cerned, there's no half-hearted
compromise to satisfy every-
one. The choices remain either
to grant equality or to keep
stoking the country's embers
of discrimination. There is a
ray of hope, though.
The American Civil Liber-
ties Union of Mississippi has
stepped in to fix the situation
by suing for reinstatement.
Americans can only hope
the court's decision will
acknowledge all our First
Amendment rights. Whether
a Mississippi school board re-
alizes it, we don't have to stop
saying, doing or being what
we wish to make others com-
fortable or happy.

Opinions


Column

Alligator weighs gi
following the controversial shooting of Ghanian
graduate assistant Kofi Adu-Brempong by Univer-
sity Police, Students for a Democratic Society pre-
sented a list of demands to Vice President of Student Af-
fairs Patricia Telles-Irvin. Listed below are these demands
followed by the Editorial Board's recommendations.
1. Drop all charges against Adu-Brempong and pay for
his medical bills. 2. Oversight of the investigation by a neu-
tral party. 3. Termination of UPD officer Keith Smith. 4. A
review board, consisting of students, faculty and police, to
analyze UPD's use-of-force policy. 5. Improvement of UF's
mental health and crisis services.
While we fully agree with Alachua County Judge Denise
Ferrero's order to have the original charges, including one
count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without
intent to kill, refiled due to a lack of probable cause, we can-
not support or reject any recommendations with Adu-Brem-
pong's current charges of aggravated assault on an officer
and resisting an officer with violence until after the investiga-
tion into the incident is complete and we have more informa-
tion. Adu-Brempong's medical costs will continue to be paid
for by the Department of Jail while he is under its control.
President Machen was right in appointing Margolis,
Healy & Associates, the same public safety organization that
investigated Virginia Tech's massacre, to review the shoot-
ing. This is too complex an incident to rely on an internal in-
vestigation, and we have faith this organization will shed un-
biased light on an event that has cloaked UF's campus with
protests, outrage and disdain for public officials.
We at the Editorial Board don't feel we have the authority
to recommend firing a public official, but we do question why
the officer who shot Adu-Brempong, Keith Smith, who was
involved in a 2009 incident in which police officers harassed
and threw eggs at residents, was even in this position.
According to UF spokesman Steve Orlando, Smith was
put on paid leave following the shooting and is now on paid
administrative duty. We feel he should be suspended with-

out pay.
We support the fourth and fifth
demands. UPD's use-of-force policy
has been questioned since the Taser-
ing of Andrew Meyer in 2007 sparked


national outrage.
An internal analysis of UPD's 2009 use-of-force policy
shows UPD reviewed 18 incidents. Eleven of those involved
a police officer drawing a firearm.
According to UPD, only four of those 11 incidents in-
volved situations where police thought the suspect had ei-
ther a gun or knife. However, UPD used a Taser only one
time in 2009, which is a decrease from eight times in 2007.
UPD attributes the decrease to its current Taser policy,
which states "suspects must be transferring from active
physical resistance to aggressive physical resistance."
While we advocate for the safety of our police officers and
for their ability to protect themselves and the citizens they
serve, we do question the use of force needed against a single
man stricken with polio as a child, causing him to walk with
a cane. According to police, Adu-Brempong swung a metal
rod and threatened them with a knife, causing police to stun
Adu-Brempong with a beanbag gun and a faulty Taser de-
ployment. If Adu-Brempong did swing a metal rod at police,
this would warrant UPD to deploy Tasers, according to poli-
cy. But some suggest the rod was his cane. We also question
why he was shot in the jaw rather than a safer location.
Lastly, we feel an improvement in the understanding and
knowledge of mental health and crisis services on campus
is a welcome addition to our inclusive campus. We believe
UPD and GPD should make crisis intervention training man-
datory and place heavier emphasis on its importance.
Above all, the Editorial Board looks forward to the results
of the independent review so we can understand what hap-
pened and who was at fault for the circumstances that have
engulfed UF's campus and drawn national scrutiny.

Letter to the Editor
Audio tapes should inspire students to vote
On March 4, the Alligator Editorial Board commented
on what they called the Unite Party's "naughty audio."
However, the editorial and the administration's silence on
this issue reveal the true problem in Student Government:
apathy.
The Alligator couldn't have said it better: "The vast re-
mainder of the Student Body is always going to not care
and not vote."
If that is how the Alligator addresses systemic coercion
and corruption within SG, it's no wonder students don't
head out to the polls. SG can be changed if students take
the initiative and cast their ballots. With less than 20 per-
cent of students voting, the Alligator should be encourag-
ing people to vote. Taking the defeatist stance that nothing
will change is just plain wrong.
These tapes deserve action. They show collusion be-
tween the Unite Party and the supposedly "non-partisan"
supervisor of elections, who is (no surprise) appointed by
Unite Party members. On top of that, they show an elabo-
rate system of coercion that goes as far as bribing voters
and denying food to pledges what has come to be called
"hazing for votes."
The story has been covered by the Gainesville Sun and
the Alligator, whose story was featured on the Huffington
Post, but UF officials have still refused to act.
Administration: It's time to take a stand. You've always
asked for evidence of voter coercion, and now you have
it. UF students deserve a government that works in their
best interests, not one that only clings to power through
corruption.
Students: The only way to truly change this is through
the power of the pen. Write to university administrators
and tell them that enough is enough. But most important-
ly, you need to prove the administration, the Alligator and
SG wrong. This fall, take five minutes, head to the polls
and vote.

Guest column

Jaywalkers should
wish we were all really good jaywalkers. There
may be some hardasses who think jaywalking is
wrong because it's against the law.
I sympathize with you; I used to think the same
way. After I got my license, I didn't speed for six
months because I was convinced it was disrespect-
ful to the governing authorities.
Then I realized that cars passing me on a two-lane
road late at night because I was driving the posted 25
mph was probably more unsafe than me going a little
faster. Similarly, I used to think jaywalking was bad.
Then I came to college and realized that at UF it's a
way of life.
Jaywalking can be pretty efficient if you're smart
about it. I live down an alley behind The Courtyards,
so I cross 13th Street at Second Avenue every day on
my way to class. Once the traffic stops along 13th,
the people turning left from Second Avenue get the
green light. That means that I can do the half-jaywalk
- come to almost the middle of the road so when all
the left-turning cars are past, I can finish crossing.
Worst case scenario, I'm halfway across the street
when the Ampelmann turns white. I don't even see
the blinky red hand. And if the left-turning cars fin-
ish before their turn light does, I can make it onto
campus before pedestrians are even cleared to walk.
So that's smart jaywalking. My operating princi-
ple: Don't make cars have to think about you. If you
jaywalk across University Avenue, don't chill out in
the median for minutes.
It makes drivers nervous you're going to jump
the border like a desperate Mexican (not to say that
they're bad jaywalkers at all). I meet a friend at Jim-
my John's every week, and that takes some skill. I'm
rarely actually at the crosswalk when the light turns
green, but I don't want to wait a whole cycle and
slow the traffic down University Avenue by pressing
the "I want to cross" button.
It's in everyone's best interest that I get across
now. So I find a gap and get halfway, and then

be smart about it
weave through the stopped cars.
They're not going anywhere.
It's all a matter of efficiency.
A lot of people who jaywalk
also drive, and vice versa,
which means in the long run,
Will Penman screwing people over by being
letters@alligatororg inconsiderate will come back to
bite you.
It's the bad jaywalkers who give everyone a bum
rap. There are the obvious cases: people who com-
pletely disregard oncoming traffic with the expec-
tation that cars will stop, people who start crossing
the street right when the red hand gets serious about
you needing to stop, etc.
Then there are more complicated jaywalking
blunders. For instance, some people don't under-
stand that the half-jaywalk trick only works for one
side of the street.
If you try to walk halfway with the left-turning
cars coming toward you, you're getting in their way,
not avoiding it. But with a little practice, jaywalking
becomes a more natural skill.
I've jaywalked with a professor before and not
even stopped our conversation about The Grapes
of Wrath. We're not dumb, just a little selfish some-
times.
So form a club, make some posters, get the word
out. We can be the best jaywalkers in the country.
There's a sign along 13th Street right before campus
that advertises how many pedestrians cars yielded
to in the last week.
Whether the numbers are made up, I don't know.
And I think it's a stupid idea, but the return ques-
tion does inspire reflection: How many cars should
pedestrians have yielded to in the last week? Hope-
fully one day we'll have harmony between drivers
and walkers and will be able to jaywalk in peace.

March Madness
CLOCKWISE FROM TOP:
Cynthia Agyemang, the sister-in-law of UF graduate student Kofi Adu-
Brempong who was shot by University Police in the jaw March 2, speaks
to protesters at Emerson Hall about Adu-Brempong's condition. Adu-
Brempong's niece and nephew also spoke at the protest.
Noan Carvalho, 9, walks with protesters from Turlington Plaza to Emer-
son Alumni Hall in a rally supporting Adu-Brempong. About 300 people
marched through campus holding signs and reciting chants like "No jus-
tice, no peace, no racist police."
Dave Schneider, one of the protest's organizers, leads the group of stu-
dents as they march down Union Road to Tigert Hall from Emerson Alum-
ni Hall. They marched to Tigert Hall to hand President Bernie Machen
and other administrators a list of demands regarding Adu-Brempong and
the University Police Department.
Protesters walk down University Avenue to Emerson Alumni Hall to speak
to members of the Board of Trustees and hand them a list of demands.
Board of Trustees member Danny Ponce addresses a crowd of about 200
at Emerson Hall on Tuesday afternoon. About 100 students held a sit in
for about two hours before marching to Tigert Hall to protest UPD's ac-
tions against Adu-Brempong.

Orlando: 'We are 100 percent supportive of freedom of expression'


Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff
Joe Richards reads a list of demands to Vice President of Student Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin and Associ-
ate Vice President David Kratzer regarding the shooting of UF graduate student Kofi Adu-Brempong.


PROTEST, from Page 9
family, talked about police brutal-
ity.
"We will not be silent about
this," said Kwame Glover, Adu-
Brempong's nephew, who said he
believes university police are in-
volved in a cover-up. We're grate-
ful and we're hopeful that justice
will prevail."
When trustee Danny Ponce
emerged to address the crowd, he
said he could not promise to meet
the demands today and was met
with angry chants of "drop the
charges" and "fire Keith Smith."
"You have the university's at-
tention," Ponce said. "I can assure
that."
Organizer Dave Schneider told
the crowd to join him in a sit-in at
Emerson Hall. About 100 people
stayed behind, many missing class
to show their support.
Elikem Nyamuame, also an in-
ternational graduate student from
Ghana, said he thinks there's too
much abuse in the current system
against people of color, but feels
the real tragedy is the loss of a good
educator.


The sit-in lasted for about two
and a half hours before organizers
decided to head to Tigert Hall to
read their demands.
"We're grateful and we're
hopeful that justice will
prevail."
Kwame Glover
Adu-Brempong's nephew

The chants gained the attention
of Patricia Telles-Irvin, UF's vice
president for student affairs, who
emerged to accept the demands and
promised to take them to President
Machen.
UF spokesman Steve Orlando
said it would be hard to meet the
protesters' demands.
For one, UF does not have the au-
thority to drop any charges against
Adu-Brempong, as that power now
lies with the State Attorney's office.
However, Orlando said
the university applauded the
peaceful nature of the rally.
"We are an academic institution,
and we are 100 percent supportive
of freedom of expression and free-
dom of speech," Orlando said.

Student Senate calls for further shooting investigation


* THE RESOLUTION PASSED
UNANIMOUSLY.

By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer

Although the student protest
ended Tuesday afternoon, debate
about the University Police shooting
of UF graduate student Kofi Adu-
Brempong continued at Tuesday
night's Senate meeting.
A group of about 30 students and
concerned members of the commu-
nity attended to support a resolution
calling for an Alachua County grand
jury investigation of the shooting.
After about two and a half hours
of debate over the wording of the
legislation and whether or not it
unfairly attacked the intentions of
the entire University Police Depart-
ment, senators voted unanimously
to pass the resolution.
The original wording of the reso-
lution called for a grand jury inves-


tigation of the incident. Members of
the Unite Party proposed changes to
the wording of original resolution.
They called for an investigation, but
not necessarily by a grand jury, that
could imply criminal acts by UPD.
The new resolution does call
for an investigation by an Alachua
County grand jury, but includes a
clause defending the honorable in-
tentions of UPD.
Unite Party Sen. Ben Meyers said
the resolution should defend Adu-
Brempong and UPD.
"It denies any notion that UPD in
any way intended to cause a tragedy
or sought to inflict harm on any hu-
man being and had no other inten-
tion than to protect the University of
Florida Student Body," he said.
Dave Schneider, one of the orga-
nizers of Tuesday's protest, said a
grand jury investigation simply al-
lows the public to know the details
of what happened at the shooting.
"I'm urging [senators] to say this
is unacceptable," Schneider said.

385 plants found at pot activist's burgled home


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


SEATTLE Sheriff's deputies said they
found 385 marijuana plants at the home of an
outspoken medical marijuana activist who
nearly killed a robber in a shootout this week.
It's not clear whether the man will face charg-
es, even though he far exceeded the state's
presumptive 15-plant limit.
Sgt. John Urquhart, a King County sheriff's
office spokesman, said Tuesday that investi-
gators also found marijuana products such as
butter, baked goods and paraphernalia at the
home of Steve Sarich, who uses pot for back
pain and runs CannaCare.
Sarich, 59, awoke early Monday to find
intruders in his home. He shot one, sending
him to the hospital in critical condition, and
suffered shotgun pellet wounds to his face


and arm when another intruder returned fire.
Four young men and a teenage boy are in cus-
tody.
Deputies left Sarich 48 ounces of dried bud
and 30 plants for him and his girlfriend but
seized everything else, Urquhart said. They
had no plans to arrest him but said they would
forward their findings to prosecutors.
Nevertheless, Sarich said he was steamed
about having the plants, computers and other
items seized, and his home trashed by inves-
tigators who dumped dirt from pots onto the
floors. He insisted CannaCare's operation is
legal and many of the plants would be pro-
vided to other marijuana patients.
Sarich vowed to sue the sheriff's office.
"If I'm not safe, no patient is safe. It's not
like nobody knows what I do," he said.
The case highlights the confusion of Wash-


ington's medical marijuana law. Approved by
voters in 1998, it says patients can use mari-
juana for certain conditions if they have a doc-
tor's authorization. But the state created no
dispensary system for obtaining the drug.
"If I'm not safe, no patient is safe."
Steve Sarich
activist

It requires patients to grow marijuana
themselves or have a caregiver grow plants
for them but doesn't explain where the pa-
tients are supposed to get the seeds or plants.
Under state rules, patients are presumed to
need up to 15 plants in any stage of growth
and 24 ounces of dried bud, but they can have
more if they demonstrate need.
Furthermore, designated caregivers can


only provide marijuana to one other patient at
any time a provision that could get Sarich
in trouble. But the law doesn't specifically
prohibit patients from growing their marijua-
na together in one location to save money on
lights or other expensive equipment.
CannaCare has 7,000 members in the state,
Sarich said. It helps patients with legal advice,
runs clinics where patients can meet with
doctors who authorize marijuana use, pro-
vides patients with marijuana clones or starter
plants and delivers about 50 patients a week
with usable marijuana, he said.
King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg has
repeatedly said he's not interested in bringing
sick people to court on marijuana charges if
they're trying to comply with the law.
Aaron Pelley, Sarich's attorney, did not im-
mediately return a call seeking comment.


Angulo will endorse Lowe, Selwach will endorse Marsh for mayor


ELECTION, from Page 1

Marsh, Monica Leadon Cooper
grabbed 25 percent of the vote
while Richard Selwach and Ozzy
Angulo picked up 4.3 and 1.5
percent respectively.
Selwach, the owner of Best
Jewelry & Loan Pawnbrokers, in-
sisted that although he was dis-
appointed with the loss, it would
not be his last attempt at public
office.
"I'm too young and good-
looking (to stop now)," he said
while sitting at the bar at Mark's
Prime Steakhouse. "You haven't
seen the last of Selwach."
The winner of the April 13th
run-off for mayor will replace
current mayor Pegeen Hanrahan,
who will fulfill her two-term lim-
it in May.
Lowe, who would be Gaines-
ville's first openly gay mayor,
said he has no intention of grow-
ing complacent despite his 11
percent lead.
"We'll hit the ground run-
ning again tomorrow," he said.
"There's no time to turn back


to failed policies rooted in the
past."
After the results were an-
nounced, Angulo said he would
endorse Lowe in the run-off,
while Selwach pledged his sup-
port for Marsh. Cooper did not
endorse either candidate.
Although Marsh hoped to
avoid a run-off, he said he was
encouraged by the results.
"I'm an optimist," he said. "I
had the crazy idea
Local that lightning would
News strike, and it'd be
over tonight."
After the results were an-
nounced, Marsh and his support-
ers, including Alley, held a party
at the Fraternal Order of Police
Gator Lodge.
Marsh said his two biggest
concerns are raising finances and
reaching out to those who voted
for Cooper and Selwach.
"We know what we need," he
said. "And we will leave no stone
unturned in getting there."

No. 6 Gators even season series with No. 5 Seminoles


Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff
UF first baseman Preston Tucker watches his home run during the third inning of the Gators' 8-5 win
against FSU in McKethan Stadium on Tuesday. Tucker scored one run and had four RBIs.


By TYLER JETT
Alligator Writer
tjett@alligator org

FSU lived dangerously, and
Preston Tucker made the Semi-
noles regret it.
They dared Tucker to swing
Tuesday, and his four RBIs
helped No. 6 UF (13-3) beat No. 5
FSU 8-5 in front of a season-high
4,773 fans in McKethan Stadium.
Tucker pulled a fastball in
the third inning over the right-
center field fence for a solo home
run, his second-round tripper in
as many days. The sophomore
led the Gators in all three Triple
Crown categories in 2009, but
opponents have pitched around
him this season.
"He's a bit frustrated," coach
Kevin O'Sullivan said about
Tucker's lack of hittable pitches.
"The first 10, 12 games, he wasn't
getting pitched to a lot. But we
kept telling him, 'At some point,
they're going to have to pitch to
you.'"
The slugger followed his home
run with a shot that brought the
crowd out of its seats in the fourth
inning. With the bases loaded,


Tucker missed a grand slam by
inches when he pulled a pitch to
the fence for a sacrifice fly.
The sophomore again came to
the plate with the bases loaded
in the next frame, but FSU coach
Mike Martin decided not to test
Tucker a second time. Reliever
Tyler Everett didn't throw a pitch
near the strike zone and walked
the first baseman on four pitch-
es, gift-wrapping a run to the
Gators.
The scoreboard was active
early in the game,
as the two teams
combined for 11
runs in the first
Baseball four innings.
UF second
baseman Josh Adams broke out
of a slump when he hit a two-run
homer just inside the right-field
foul pole in the first.
The home run pulled UF
within one after FSU put three on
the scoreboard in the top of the
frame.
"Those two runs gave the team
a little boost," Adams said. "Hit-
ting's contagious, so everybody

UF SOFTBALL

Florida hosts SEC foe Auburn


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer

While the Southeastern Conference has been
a dominant force in football and basketball for
years, its softball teams have only started to earn
national recognition recently.
An overlooked conference has turned into one
of the sport's cornerstones, and No. 6 Florida will
continue its SEC schedule today against Auburn.
Between the Gators' inaugural season in 1997
and the 2004 campaign, the SEC had only three
seasons with more than three top-25-finishing
teams and never landed more than two teams in
the top-10.
In the five seasons since, it has notched at
least five top-25 teams or three top-10 teams four
times.
Last season might have been the conference's
strongest yet, as three of the final four teams
standing in the Women's College World Series
came from the SEC, including then-No. 1 Florida,
which fell to Washington in the finals.
Now the Gators (18-3, 2-1 SEC) are faced with
the challenge of trying to win their third-consec-


utive championship in a conference stacked with
powerhouses like No. 8 Alabama, No. 9 Georgia,
No. 14 LSU and No. 17 Tennessee.
The next step in this quest will begin at 4 p.m.,
when they host the Tigers (15-7, 2-1 SEC) in a
doubleheader at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium.
Even though Auburn is one of the few SEC
teams not making an appearance in the top 25,
the Gators know they can't take them lightly.
"We just have to fight pitch-
by-pitch the whole game be-
cause every SEC team out there
is tough, and it's going to be
a battle," freshman Brittany
Schutte said.
As UF's opening SEC series
Schutte against Ole Miss last weekend
showed, nothing will come
easy against any conference opponent.
Despite earning a run-rule victory in the first
game, the Gators got all they could handle from
the Rebels in Game 2, falling 6-4 in extra innings.
"Just because you beat a team by 10 runs
SEE SOFTBALL, PAGE 19


Tucker immune to pressure


everybody wants to be The
Man. But not everybody can
handle being The Man.
With two outs and the bases
loaded against FSU in the fifth in-
ning, UF sophomore Preston Tucker
walked to the plate, took four pitch-
es and trotted down to first base, ex-
tending Florida's lead to 7-5.
Tucker is writing the book on
how to handle being The Man.
After a stellar freshman cam-
paign in which Tucker hit .364 with
15 home runs and a school-record 85
RBIs, the first baseman is no longer
the nation's best kept hitting secret.
Teams don't want to let the pow-
er-hitting lefty beat them, which
means Tucker gets little more than
table scraps at the plate every game.
The Seminoles knew Tucker was
hungry and not to be messed with,
so they made the diplomatic deci-

Gators face unexpected test from rival Seminoles


Match was originally set for Feb. 24


By ANDREW OLSON
Alligator Writer

It's not the way UF coach Andy
Jackson wanted it to play out, but
today is a big match for the men's
tennis team.
The No. 7 Gators (12-2,4-0 South-
eastern Conference) are off to their
best start since 2005 in SEC play, but
that won't be a factor against out-of-
conference and in-state rival No. 20
FSU (10-3,3-0 Atlantic Coast Confer-
ence).
Jackson's approach is to schedule
non-conference opponents in Janu-
ary and February to have the team
focused on SEC play during March
and April. Originally, the match was
set for Feb. 24 but was rained out
and rescheduled for today at 4 p.m.


The FSU match will be Jackson's
first opportunity to win his 100th
contest at home during his tenure at
UF. Florida is undefeated at home
this season, including wins over
No. 11 Illinois and No. 28 Georgia
Tech, and the Gators are 9-1 against
the Seminoles under Jackson, with a
current three-game winning streak
in the series.
The players are still excited to
face their in-state rival.
"I was debating the other day,
'Who would I rather beat: an SEC
team or Florida State?'" freshman
Bob Van Overbeek said. "I couldn't
come up with an answer. SEC wins
are special, but this is Florida State."
Van Overbeek's impressive play
at the No. 4 position has been valu-
able in Florida's recent victories.


At that spot, the Boca Raton native
will likely match up against another
freshman, Connor Smith.
Smith and the rest of the Semi-
noles are coming off a heartbreak-
ing 4-3 loss to No. 38
Notre Dame on Sun-
day, and they'll face a
Florida team that has
Men's changed its look and
Tennis gained confidence
since Feb. 24.
One change has been made in
doubles, where senior Daniel Cash
has become Van Overbeek's part-
ner.
"I have a lot of confidence in
Daniel because he's a senior and a
high-level doubles player," Jackson
said.
Cash and Van Overbeek are 3-3


this spring after two close losses last
weekend.
Van Overbeek's other doubles
partner, freshman Billy Federhofer,
will likely return to the court soon.
"Billy is a special returned, and
he's a young player who needs to get
experience, so I need to get him in
matches," Jackson said. "It's a very
good situation for us. You could say
that it's a rotation between them that
we have going."
There does not appear to be any
rotation in the singles lineup coming
any time soon.
No. 6 junior Alexandre Lacroix
has won six-consecutive matches
at the No. 1 spot since the team re-
turned home from the ITA Team In-
door Tournament in Charlottesville,
Va. Five of those six wins have come
since the match against FSU was
postponed.


Lacroix will likely face No. 22
Jean-Yves Aubone. Aubone is com-
ing off an upset victory over No. 19
Casey Watt of Notre Dame.
Sophomore Nassim Slilam will
also have a streak on the line, as he
enters today's match with 12-straight
wins, mostly at the No. 6 spot.
When combined with the No.
5 court, lately played by freshman
Sekou Bangoura Jr., Florida is 26-2
at the bottom two spots.
Bangoura, a native Floridian,
said before the originally scheduled
match that while the team tries to
maintain the same focus for every
opponent, it's hard not to get more
"pumped" for FSU.
After Sunday's victory over Ala-
bama, he confirmed not much has
changed.
"We're still excited," Bangoura
said.

kind of followed after that."
Adams drove in another run when he
roped a single with the bases loaded in the
fourth inning. Since going 3 for 3 on open-
ing day, Feb. 19, the junior has hit just .263.
He said he has been impatient in the bat-
ter's box.
"It's baseball," he said. "You get anxious
at times."
The Seminoles entered Tuesday averag-
ing 10 runs per game and appeared to be on
track for another offensive outburst when
cleanup hitter Mike McGee belted a three-
run homer off freshman Hudson Randall in
the first.
Randall allowed two more runs in the
next frame.
But unlike the last meeting between the
two teams, when FSU chased starter An-


thony DeSclafani before he could even get
one out, the Gators' pitching staff settled
down.
The Seminoles were held scoreless and
managed only one hit in the last seven in-
nings against Randall and relievers Nick
Maronde and Kevin Chapman.
Maronde, who has been inconsistent this
season, allowed no hits in
three innings while strik-
ing out three.
The performance was
much better than his
outing Sunday against
Charleston Southern,
when he gave up two runs
Chapman in 1 1/3 innings.
"When a guy doesn't do as well as you'd
hoped, I truly want to get him out there as
quickly as I possibly can to get their feet wet

doesn't mean the next game in the
SEC that that's gonna happen,"
catcher Tiffany DeFelice said. "Ev-

Despite the strength of the con-
ference, UF has faired incredibly
well over the past two seasons, go-
ing a combined 53-2 en route to a
pair of SEC titles.
This, along with the fact that
Florida was the preseason pick to
win the SEC East and is now the
highest-ranked team in the confer-
ence, means every opponent will be
gunning for the Gators.
"People always come after us
hard just cause we're Florida and
we beat a lot of teams up in the
past," senior Francesca Enea said.
"They're going to come with every-
thing and you never know what's
going to happen so we have to be
our best every day.
"We can't just show up and win

Tucker's on-base percentage is a ro-
bust .493 after Tuesday's game against
FSU, up from .419 a year ago.
His slugging percentage is a "pal-
try" .550 compared to last year's .628,
but saving outs is more important
than hitting for an extra base or two,
not that I expect Tucker to be kept un-
der .600 for much longer.
The arrival of freshman Austin
Maddox has given the Gators another
run-producing slugger in the middle
of the lineup, which allows Tucker to
take what opponents give him.

and RBIs, thanks in part to Tucker.

However, the SEC is quickly
gaining ground, and UF has shown
its mettle by going 3-2 against the
Pac-10 in games played on the West
Coast over the last three years.
"It definitely motivates us and
gives us credibility because the SEC
hasn't been known like the Pac-10

Kelsey Bruder said.
"But we're coming up with

The only time he left the plate with-
out an RBI in his 2-for-3 performance
was a blistering line drive to center

inning was a foot away from being a

James Ramsey caught it at the wall.
The inning prior, Tucker showed
the packed crowd that he can still
do more than trot down to first base
when he blasted a solo home run over
the right-center field wall. He can trot
around all four bases if necessary.
On pg. 21 of Tucker's book on how

ing walks for the betterment of your

Gators seek friendly confines to quell losing streak


* SLOPPY PLAY COST UF ITS
LAST TWO CONTESTS.

By TONI-ANN MILLER
Alligator Writer

There is no place like being home
on familiar territory after a disap-
pointing loss on the road for ath-
letes, and the Florida lacrosse team
will benefit from that Wednesday.
UF (3-3, 0-1 American Lacrosse
Conference) will host the Marist
Red Foxes (2-2) in the first match of
its three-game homestand and will
look to rebound from a two-game
losing streak.
However, playing in Gainesville
won't guarantee a turnaround for
the Gators, as their recent troubles
run deeper than location.
The team's poor defense and in-
consistent offense worry head coach
Amanda O'Leary heading into the
matchup against the Red Foxes.
In its last two games, a 13-11
loss at home to Georgetown and a
16-8 defeat at Johns Hopkins, UF
has been plagued by its inability to
maintain a high level of play, espe-
cially in the second half.
Florida allowed 29 goals and had
43 turnovers in those two games.
"Our team defense is still weak,"
O'Leary said. "I don't think we've
jelled as a team, defensively. We
have, right now, seven individu-
als that are playing defense versus
seven players that are playing as a
team."


O'Leary is concerned by the
team's poor help defense when a de-
fender is beaten by an opponent.


And she said UF will need to "fin-
ish" on offense to compete against
the remaining teams on its schedule


- and more immediately Marist.
"Unless we see improvement in
those two areas, we will just contin-


aolve.I n. neys/ Hlll1glr oal..
UF midfielder Caroline Chesterman is the Gators' third-leading goal-scorer with 11. She has been one of
the consistent performers in an ever-changing lineup as Florida searches for the best combination.


ue to plateau versus getting better,"
O'Leary said.
To improve, O'Leary and her
coaching staff have changed the
starting lineup each game to find the
best on-field pairings for UF.
Freshman midfielder Caroline
Chesterman hasn't had to worry
about the shuffling, as she has been a
staple in the lineup since the second
game of the season. She has scored
11 of the team's 77 goals so far.
She said the team knows it can
compete against talented teams, as it
did against Georgetown, but the key
is to maintain that confidence when
it takes on Marist.
"We do have the skill and the
athleticism to win," Chesterman
said. "We just have to play to our
abilities."
Fellow freshman midfielder Brit-
tany Dashiell has started every game
this season, and she has 12 of UF's
scores. Freshman attacker Ashley
Bruns leads the team with 14 goals
and 14 assists on the season, and she
too has started every game.
So when the Gators play at 6:30
p.m. against the Red Foxes, some of
the usual starters will be on the field,
but O'Leary will have to pick the
best 12-player group for the defen-
sive and offensive cohesiveness that
has eluded the Gators so far.
"Hopefully, we'll be able to find
people that click on the attack and
click in the midfield and click on the
defensive end, and then we'll be in
good shape," O'Leary said. "We're
working to get to that right now."

You Decide. -b WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 2010 TO BE CONTINUED. Mayoral candidate Craig Lowe awaits election results at the Supervisor of Elections Office on Tuesday night. By CJ PRUNER Alligator Staff Writer After Tuesday's city election, Gainesville voters were hoping to get a new mayor and city commissioner. Instead, they're getting another election. In the race for Gainesville mayor and a District 4 City Commission seat, no candidate received the 50-percent plus one vote necessary to avoid a runoff. The top two candidates in each race will have to make their case to the voters one last time. In the mayoral race, City Commissioner Craig Lowe secured 40 percent of votes cast while local business owner Don Marsh received 29 percent. "I'm very gratified by the results," Lowe said. "I'm very energized to continue a very positive, progressive, future-oriented campaign. In the District 4 City Commission race, Randy Wells got 47 percent of the vote, topping Penny Wheat's 37 percent. With his wife by his side and his daughter in his arms, Wells expressed gratitude for his supporters and vowed to continue his outreach to voters. "It's going to take more knocking on doors," Wells said. "(People) won't be surprised to see my face for the second or third time." The other candidates for city commission were Mason Alley, Pat Fitzpatrick and Nathaniel Sperling, who collectively received 15 percent of the vote. "I'm very gratified by the results. I'm very energized to continue a very positive, progressive, future-oriented campaign." Craig Lowe mayoral candidate Of the 72,623 registered voters in Alachua County, 10,167, or 14 percent, cast their ballots. Although the turnout was less than the 25 percent that Alachua County Supervisor of Elections Pam Carpenter hoped for, it was an increase from the 10.7 percent of eligible voters who turned out for the 2007 mayoral election. Finishing behind Lowe and ON CAMPUS Ben Folds to sing at UF By GABRIELLE FALCONEIRI Alligator Contributing Writer Singer, songwriter and pianist Ben Folds will perform tonight at 8 at UF's Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Folds was paid $35,240 for the show, according to Student Government Finance. The event is sponsored by Student Government Productions Music and Entertainment and the Jewish Student Union. They brought Folds to UF in honor of Jewish Awareness Month. "JAM immediately jumped on board at the opportunity to co-sponsor this event as one of the pinnacle events for their month," said Aaron Crespin, chairman of SGP Music and Entertainment. This is the singer's first appearance at UF, Crespin said. A native of Winston-Salem, N.C., Folds has been part of the music scene for 15 years. His former band, Ben Folds Five, recorded three studio albums during its seven years together and is best known for the single "Brick." In September 2008, Folds released his third solo album titled "Way to Normal." Tickets may be purchased at the University Box Office. Admission for students costs $14 and $19 for the general public.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 3 Students, faculty talk buses By GLENN COINE Alligator Contributing Writer Students are sick of waiting, and they're tired of walking. Students and UF faculty and staff expressed their transporation concerns at the first of two forums Tuesday with UF and the Gainesville Regional Transit System. The forum was held so residents to offer input for consideration in the transportation component of the 2010-2020 Campus Master Plan. About 18 people attended the first forum. Florida legislature requires state universities to submit a Campus Master Plan update every five years, outlining project and budget proposals. The transportation component is funded separately but is being run in coordination with the federally required five-year update for the Gainesville Urbanized Area 2035 Long Range Transportation Plan. The Renaissance Planning Group, an independent consulting firm, has been contracted by the university and by RTS to manage these projects. Whit Blanton, vice president of Renaissance and project manager for the transportation element of UF's plan, said the coordination of the metropolitan and university planning holds great advantages, particularly cost efficiency. According to Blanton, the university is paying Renaissance a little over $100,000. During the forum, Doug Robinson, chief transit planner for Gainesville RTS, addressed areas for improvement within the campus and metro bus systems like comfort, convenience, reliability and sustainability. He then discussed several proposed solutions including bus rapid transit. This would essentially be an express bus that would run faster using dediOn cated lanes and/or the ability Campus to change red lights or delay green ones. The possibility of a streetcar running from campus to downtown was also mentioned, but as a long-term goal. Audience members were asked to draw in and make note of additions and revisions they would like to see. Blanton said students could expect to see some changes as soon as the end of the year. The bigger the change, he said, the longer it will take. Robinson said RTS is working on converting the entire fleet of city buses to run on biodiesel like the campus ones. He said this should be completed by 2011. Earth Day events kick off 40 DAYS OF CHANGE WILL LAST THROUGH APRIL 24. By DANIELLE PETERSON Alligator Contributing Writer Earth Day is celebrating its 40th birthday, and Gainesville residents are invited to a 40-day party. The UF Office of Sustainability is sponsoring 40 Days of Change, which includes sustainability-focused activities on campus and throughout the Gainesville area. Although Earth Day falls on April 22, the event ends April 24. The campaign kicked off Tuesday at the Reitz Union Colonnade and North Lawn, where students participated in recycling-themed crafts and learned about upcoming events. Campaign activities include the 10day Gainesville Environmental Film and Arts Festival at the Hippodrome and walking tours of Paynes Prairie every Thursday, said Stephanie Sims, program assistant for the Office of Sustainability. "It's important to know where food comes from, where it goes and how it's recycled." Jordan Weinstein intern at the Office of Sustainability Jordan Weinstein, an intern at the Office of Sustainability, promoted Gators for a Sustainable Campus. Weinstein said students should pay attention to the sources of their food and how it's made. "It's important to know where food comes from, where it goes and how it's recycled," she said.

4, ALLIGATOR E WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 2010 Study suggests soda, pizza tax By ANDREW PANTAZI Johnson, the restaurant's manbe implemented in the near future, Alligator Contributing Writer ager. Johnson said it could possibly put Although the tax is unlikely to Leonardo's Pizza out of business. Some researchers want to fatten pizza and soda costs in hopes that it will slim America's waistline. A study published Monday in the Archives of Internal Medicine argues for an 18 percent tax on pizza and soda. The study estimated the tax would decrease calorie intake, on average, by 56 calories daily. "At the population level, declines of 56 [calories] per day would be associated with a reduction of roughly 5 [pounds] per adult per year and significant reductions in the risks of most obesity-related chronic diseases," the report wrote. Maurice Marshall, a UF food science professor, said while he agrees America is facing health issues, he doesn't believe pizza is the biggest problem food. "A pizza here and there has its place, obviously in moderation," said Marshall. "I would pick on savory snacks, chips and snacks like that. At least a pizza has nutritional value. You can buy a wholewheat crust, and it offers some cheeses and some meats. Pizza has a couple of things on the food pyramid. I'm not sure what [potato chips] offer in terms of nutritional benefit." David Denslow, a UF economics professor, compared the tax on soda to a tax passed on beer in the early 1990s. As for pizza, Denslow thinks if a tax passed, pizza restaurants would find ways to make "pizzalike food" that is not called "piz-a za" to avoid the taxes.

By MELINDA CARSTENSEN Alligator Contributing Writer Census forms started arriving in mailboxes this week, and Alachua County officials are encouraging everyone, including students, to participate by filling out and mailing in the form that is required by law. The Census, which is conducted every 10 years, determines how legislative districts will be drawn, how U.S. House of Representatives seats will be apportioned and how federal funds will be distributed. Norman Sassner, local Census office manager, said it is important that UF students participate because they attend a state-run school. "The more students participate, the more [the] funds are going to increase by that News number," Sassner said. He added it's necessary students fill out the form in Gainesville if that's where they are living, even if it is not their permanent residence. The 23rd census form, the shortest ever, contains 10 questions. All information collected, including names, addresses and phone numbers, is confidential, according to Sassner. About 63 percent of Gainesville residents participated in the 2000 Census, which ties Florida's average participation rate but falls below the national average of 67 percent, according statistics on the Web site for the Census' Bureau. Census workers make up to three trips to each home that has not submitted a Census form between April and July. According to the Census Bureau Web site, regional Census bureaus will deliever the Census information to the president for apportionment in December.

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 2010 Editorial Bad Barbie New toy sends wrong message to children She's at it again. Our favorite anatomically incorrect career hopper is adding another hobby to her already formidable list -promoting the purchase of animals. Last week, Mattel announced a new Plush Pals line, featuring Blissa the kitten, Lacey the Chihuahua puppy and Sequin the poodle. Well, in case you haven't noticed, shelters aren't exactly overflowing with Chihuahua puppies and poodles. The toys, 10-inch plushes with cramped, matching carriers, condition little girls to want designer dogs and treat pets like accessories (and for Barbie, that's exactly what they are). Mattel could have easily presented the pets as rescued animals. They could have invented past abuse or neglect and allowed children to "save" them. Instead, as usual, they took the cute, easy route and contributed to the nationwide epidemic of animal overpopulation. That's not even the only problem -studies show that purebred animals are less healthy than "mutts" or mixed breeds. But we get it -only the best for Barbie. Until Americans acknowledge that it's a problem for animals to die in shelters while people (and dolls) buy pets, the problem is not going to get better. If Barbie had forgone the puppy mills and adopted a pit bull, a mutt, or even an adult Chihuahua, we might feel differently. But once again, like when she got knocked up (we don't see a commitment ring on those webbed fingers) or decided to become a unicorn, Barbie made a dumb choice. Mississippi Cruelboard Congrats, Mississippi. Your residents just helped solidify the backwards image many Americans have of you. Itawamba Agricultural HighSchoolinFultoncanceled its April 2 prom on March 10, not for lack of funding or space, but because Constance McMillen, a lesbian student, wanted to wear a tuxedo and bring her girlfriend. Although the school board was probably just trying to skirt the issue of denying the two students' entry, its members have unfairly punished McMillen and the other students. Halting the tradition less than a month before the scheduled date offers McMillen up to the actions of her angered classmates, many of whom already bought their clothes for the event. If the school board's actions don't count as intentional retaliation, they remain sad reminders that people often scratch their heads over how to mesh tradition and modernity. And they sometimes make the wrong decision. In this case, officials learned that when the rights of a group of people are concerned, there's no half-hearted compromise to satisfy everyone. The choices remain either to grant equality or to keep stoking the country's embers of discrimination. There is a ray of hope, though. The American Civil Liberties Union of Mississippi has stepped in to fix the situation by suing for reinstatement. Americans can only hope the court's decision will acknowledge all our First Amendment rights. Whether a Mississippi school board realizes it, we don't have to stop saying, doing or being what we wish to make others comfortable or happy. 0 the independent florida alligator Chelsea Keenan EDITOR Emily Fuggetta J Hunter Sizemore MANAGING EDITORS The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one letter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must include the author's name, classification and phone number Names will be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, style and libel Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105W University A e, or send them to PO Box 14257, Gainesville, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions? Call 376-4458 Opinions Column Alligator weighs gi ollowing the controversial shooting of Ghanian graduate assistant Kofi Adu-Brempong by University Police, Students for a Democratic Society presented a list of demands to Vice President of Student Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin. Listed below are these demands followed by the Editorial Board's recommendations. 1. Drop all charges against Adu-Brempong and pay for his medical bills. 2. Oversight of the investigation by a neutral party. 3. Termination of UPD officer Keith Smith. 4. A review board, consisting of students, faculty and police, to analyze UPD's use-of-force policy. 5. Improvement of UF's mental health and crisis services. While we fully agree with Alachua County Judge Denise Ferrero's order to have the original charges, including one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, refiled due to a lack of probable cause, we cannot support or reject any recommendations with Adu-Brempong's current charges of aggravated assault on an officer and resisting an officer with violence until after the investigation into the incident is complete and we have more information. Adu-Brempong's medical costs will continue to be paid for by the Department of Jail while he is under its control. President Machen was right in appointing Margolis, Healy & Associates, the same public safety organization that investigated Virginia Tech's massacre, to review the shooting. This is too complex an incident to rely on an internal investigation, and we have faith this organization will shed unbiased light on an event that has cloaked UF's campus with protests, outrage and disdain for public officials. We at the Editorial Board don't feel we have the authority to recommend firing a public official, but we do question why the officer who shot Adu-Brempong, Keith Smith, who was involved in a 2009 incident in which police officers harassed and threw eggs at residents, was even in this position. According to UF spokesman Steve Orlando, Smith was put on paid leave following the shooting and is now on paid administrative duty. We feel he should be suspended withReader response Today's question: Did you vote in yesterday's city election? ALLIGATOR www.aIIigator.org//opinions <; 41' up's demands Jared Misner Editorial Notebook letters@alligator org out pay. We support the fourth and fifth demands. UPD's use-of-force policy has been questioned since the Tasering of Andrew Meyer in 2007 sparked national outrage. An internal analysis of UPD's 2009 use-of-force policy shows UPD reviewed 18 incidents. Eleven of those involved a police officer drawing a firearm. According to UPD, only four of those 11 incidents involved situations where police thought the suspect had either a gun or knife. However, UPD used a Taser only one time in 2009, which is a decrease from eight times in 2007. UPD attributes the decrease to its current Taser policy, which states "suspects must be transferring from active physical resistance to aggressive physical resistance." While we advocate for the safety of our police officers and for their ability to protect themselves and the citizens they serve, we do question the use of force needed against a single man stricken with polio as a child, causing him to walk with a cane. According to police, Adu-Brempong swung a metal rod and threatened them with a knife, causing police to stun Adu-Brempong with a beanbag gun and a faulty Taser deployment. If Adu-Brempong did swing a metal rod at police, this would warrant UPD to deploy Tasers, according to policy. But some suggest the rod was his cane. We also question why he was shot in the jaw rather than a safer location. Lastly, we feel an improvement in the understanding and knowledge of mental health and crisis services on campus is a welcome addition to our inclusive campus. We believe UPD and GPD should make crisis intervention training mandatory and place heavier emphasis on its importance. Above all, the Editorial Board looks forward to the results of the independent review so we can understand what happened and who was at fault for the circumstances that have engulfed UF's campus and drawn national scrutiny.

Letter to the Editor Audio tapes should inspire students to vote On March 4, the Alligator Editorial Board commented on what they called the Unite Party's "naughty audio." However, the editorial and the administration's silence on this issue reveal the true problem in Student Government: apathy. The Alligator couldn't have said it better: "The vast remainder of the Student Body is always going to not care and not vote." If that is how the Alligator addresses systemic coercion and corruption within SG, it's no wonder students don't head out to the polls. SG can be changed if students take the initiative and cast their ballots. With less than 20 percent of students voting, the Alligator should be encouraging people to vote. Taking the defeatist stance that nothing will change is just plain wrong. These tapes deserve action. They show collusion between the Unite Party and the supposedly "non-partisan" supervisor of elections, who is (no surprise) appointed by Unite Party members. On top of that, they show an elaborate system of coercion that goes as far as bribing voters and denying food to pledges -what has come to be called "hazing for votes." The story has been covered by the Gainesville Sun and the Alligator, whose story was featured on the Huffington Post, but UF officials have still refused to act. Administration: It's time to take a stand. You've always asked for evidence of voter coercion, and now you have it. UF students deserve a government that works in their best interests, not one that only clings to power through corruption. Students: The only way to truly change this is through the power of the pen. Write to university administrators and tell them that enough is enough. But most importantly, you need to prove the administration, the Alligator and SG wrong. This fall, take five minutes, head to the polls and vote. Jonathan Ossip Student Alliance Senate Leader WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 7 be smart about it Guest column Jaywalkers should wish we were all really good jaywalkers. There may be some hardasses who think jaywalking is wrong because it's against the law. I sympathize with you; I used to think the same way. After I got my license, I didn't speed for six months because I was convinced it was disrespectful to the governing authorities. Then I realized that cars passing me on a two-lane road late at night because I was driving the posted 25 mph was probably more unsafe than me going a little faster. Similarly, I used to think jaywalking was bad. Then I came to college and realized that at UF it's a way of life. Jaywalking can be pretty efficient if you're smart about it. I live down an alley behind The Courtyards, so I cross 13th Street at Second Avenue every day on my way to class. Once the traffic stops along 13th, the people turning left from Second Avenue get the green light. That means that I can do the half-jaywalk -come to almost the middle of the road so when all the left-turning cars are past, I can finish crossing. Worst case scenario, I'm halfway across the street when the Ampelmann turns white. I don't even see the blinky red hand. And if the left-turning cars finish before their turn light does, I can make it onto campus before pedestrians are even cleared to walk. So that's smart jaywalking. My operating principle: Don't make cars have to think about you. If you jaywalk across University Avenue, don't chill out in the median for minutes. It makes drivers nervous you're going to jump the border like a desperate Mexican (not to say that they're bad jaywalkers at all). I meet a friend at Jimmy John's every week, and that takes some skill. I'm rarely actually at the crosswalk when the light turns green, but I don't want to wait a whole cycle and slow the traffic down University Avenue by pressing the "I want to cross" button. It's in everyone's best interest that I get across now. So I find a gap and get halfway, and then weave through the stopped cars. They're not going anywhere. It's all a matter of efficiency. A lot of people who jaywalk also drive, and vice versa, which means in the long run, screwing people over by being inconsiderate will come back to bite you. It's the bad jaywalkers who give everyone a bum rap. There are the obvious cases: people who completely disregard oncoming traffic with the expectation that cars will stop, people who start crossing the street right when the red hand gets serious about you needing to stop, etc. Then there are more complicated jaywalking blunders. For instance, some people don't understand that the half-jaywalk trick only works for one side of the street. If you try to walk halfway with the left-turning cars coming toward you, you're getting in their way, not avoiding it. But with a little practice, jaywalking becomes a more natural skill. I've jaywalked with a professor before and not even stopped our conversation about The Grapes of Wrath. We're not dumb, just a little selfish sometimes. So form a club, make some posters, get the word out. We can be the best jaywalkers in the country. There's a sign along 13th Street right before campus that advertises how many pedestrians cars yielded to in the last week. Whether the numbers are made up, I don't know. And I think it's a stupid idea, but the return question does inspire reflection: How many cars should pedestrians have yielded to in the last week? Hopefully one day we'll have harmony between drivers and walkers and will be able to jaywalk in peace. Will Penman is an English senior. His column appears weekly.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 9 Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers Orlando: 'We are 100 percent supportive of freedom of expression' Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff Joe Richards reads a list of demands to Vice President of Student Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin and Associate Vice President David Kratzer regarding the shooting of UF graduate student Kofi Adu-Brempong. PROTEST, from Page 9 family, talked about police brutality. "We will not be silent about this," said Kwame Glover, AduBrempong's nephew, who said he believes university police are involved in a cover-up. We're grateful and we're hopeful that justice will prevail." When trustee Danny Ponce emerged to address the crowd, he said he could not promise to meet the demands today and was met with angry chants of "drop the charges" and "fire Keith Smith." "You have the university's attention," Ponce said. "I can assure that." Organizer Dave Schneider told the crowd to join him in a sit-in at Emerson Hall. About 100 people stayed behind, many missing class to show their support. Elikem Nyamuame, also an international graduate student from Ghana, said he thinks there's too much abuse in the current system against people of color, but feels the real tragedy is the loss of a good educator. The sit-in lasted for about two and a half hours before organizers decided to head to Tigert Hall to read their demands. "We're grateful and we're hopeful that justice will prevail." Kwame Glover Adu-Brempong's nephew The chants gained the attention of Patricia Telles-Irvin, UF's vice president for student affairs, who emerged to accept the demands and promised to take them to President Machen. UT spokesman Steve Orlando said it would be hard to meet the protesters' demands. For one, UF does not have the authority to drop any charges against Adu-Brempong, as that power now lies with the State Attorney's office. However, Orlando said the university applauded the peaceful nature of the rally. "We are an academic institution, and we are 100 percent supportive of freedom of expression and freedom of speech," Orlando said.

10, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 2010 Student Senate calls for further shooting investigation 0 THE RESOLUTION PASSED UNANIMOUSLY. By ELIZABETH BEHIRMAN Alligator Writer Although the student protest ended Tuesday afternoon, debate about the University Police shooting of UF graduate student Kofi AduBrempong continued at Tuesday night's Senate meeting. A group of about 30 students and concerned members of the community attended to support a resolution calling for an Alachua County grand jury investigation of the shooting. After about two and a half hours of debate over the wording of the legislation and whether or not it unfairly attacked the intentions of the entire University Police Department, senators voted unanimously to pass the resolution. The original wording of the resolution called for a grand jury invesligation of the incident. Members of the Unite Party proposed changes to the wording of original resolution. They called for an investigation, but not necessarily by a grand jury, that could imply criminal acts by UPD. The new resolution does call for an investigation by an Alachua County grand jury, but includes a dause defending the honorable intentions of UPD. Unite Party Sen. Ben Meyers said the resolution should defend AduBrempong and UPD. "It denies any notion that UPD in any way intended to cause a tragedy or sought to inflict harm on any human being and had no other intention than to protect the University of Florida Student Body," he said. Dave Schneider, one of the organizers of Tuesday's protest, said a grand jury investigation simply allows the public to know the details of what happened at the shooting. "I'm urging [senators] to say this is unacceptable," Schneider said. Thomas Plevik/ Alligator Political science major Tim Johnson joins the Tuesday night Senate meeting with others who wanted Student Government to request a grand jury to review the Kofi Adu-Brempong shooting.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 11 NATIONAL 385 plants found at pot activist's burgled home SEATTLE -Sheriff's deputies said they found 385 marijuana plants at the home of an outspoken medical marijuana activist who nearly killed a robber in a shootout this week. It's not clear whether the man will face charges, even though he far exceeded the state's presumptive 15-plant limit. Sgt. John Urquhart, a King County sheriff's office spokesman, said Tuesday that investigators also found marijuana products such as butter, baked goods and paraphernalia at the home of Steve Sarich, who uses pot for back pain and runs CannaCare. Sarich, 59, awoke early Monday to find intruders in his home. He shot one, sending him to the hospital in critical condition, and suffered shotgun pellet wounds to his face and arm when another intruder returned fire. Four young men and a teenage boy are in custody. Deputies left Sarich 48 ounces of dried bud and 30 plants for him and his girlfriend but seized everything else, Urquhart said. They had no plans to arrest him but said they would forward their findings to prosecutors. Nevertheless, Sarich said he was steamed about having the plants, computers and other items seized, and his home trashed by investigators who dumped dirt from pots onto the floors. He insisted CannaCare's operation is legal and many of the plants would be provided to other marijuana patients. Sarich vowed to sue the sheriff's office. "If I'm not safe, no patient is safe. It's not like nobody knows what I do," he said. The case highlights the confusion of WashTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS only provide marijuana to one other patient at any time -a provision that could get Sarich in trouble. But the law doesn't specifically prohibit patients from growing their marijuana together in one location to save money on lights or other expensive equipment. CannaCare has 7,000 members in the state, Sarich said. It helps patients with legal advice, runs clinics where patients can meet with doctors who authorize marijuana use, provides patients with marijuana clones or starter plants and delivers about 50 patients a week with usable marijuana, he said. King CountyProsecutorDanSatterberghas repeatedly said he's not interested in bringing sick people to court on marijuana charges if they're trying to comply with the law. Aaron Pelley, Sarich's attorney, did not immediately return a call seeking comment. Angulo will endorse Lowe, Selwach will endorse Marsh for mayor ELECTION, from Page 1 Marsh, Monica Leadon Cooper grabbed 25 percent of the vote while Richard Selwach and Ozzy Angulo picked up 4.3 and 1.5 percent respectively. Selwach, the owner of Best Jewelry & Loan Pawnbrokers, insisted that although he was disappointed with the loss, it would not be his last attempt at public office. "I'm too young and goodlooking (to stop now)," he said while sitting at the bar at Mark's Prime Steakhouse. "You haven't seen the last of Selwach." The winner of the April 13th run-off for mayor will replace current mayor Pegeen Hanrahan, who will fulfill her two-term limit in May. Lowe, who would be Gainesville's first openly gay mayor, said he has no intention of growing complacent despite his 11 percent lead. "We'll hit the ground running again tomorrow," he said. "There's no time to turn back to failed policies rooted in the past." After the results were announced, Angulo said he would endorse Lowe in the run-off, while Selwach pledged his support for Marsh. Cooper did not endorse either candidate. Although Marsh hoped to avoid a run-off, he said he was encouraged by the results. "I'm an optimist," he said. "I had the crazy idea Local that lightning would News strike, and it'd be over tonight." After the results were announced, Marsh and his supporters, including Alley, held a party at the Fraternal Order of Police Gator Lodge. Marsh said his two biggest concerns are raising finances and reaching out to those who voted for Cooper and Selwach. "We know what we need," he said.

Sports WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org No. 6 Gators even season series with No. 5 Seminoles Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff UF first baseman Preston Tucker watches his home run during the third inning of the Gators' 8-5 win against FSU in McKethan Stadium on Tuesday. Tucker scored one run and had four RBIs. By TYLER JETT Alligator Writer tjett@alligator org FSU lived dangerously, and Preston Tucker made the Seminoles regret it. They dared Tucker to swing Tuesday, and his four RBIs helped No. 6 UF (13-3) beat No. 5 FSU 8-5 in front of a season-high 4,773 fans in McKethan Stadium. Tucker pulled a fastball in the third inning over the rightcenter field fence for a solo home run, his second-round tripper in as many days. The sophomore led the Gators in all three Triple Crown categories in 2009, but opponents have pitched around him this season. "He's a bit frustrated," coach Kevin O'Sullivan said about Tucker's lack of hittable pitches. "The first 10, 12 games, he wasn't getting pitched to a lot. But we kept telling him, 'At some point, they're going to have to pitch to you. The slugger followed his home run with a shot that brought the crowd out of its seats in the fourth inning. With the bases loaded, Tucker missed a grand slam by inches when he pulled a pitch to the fence for a sacrifice fly. The sophomore again came to the plate with the bases loaded in the next frame, but FSU coach Mike Martin decided not to test Tucker a second time. Reliever Tyler Everett didn't throw a pitch near the strike zone and walked the first baseman on four pitches, gift-wrapping a run to the Gators. The scoreboard was active early in the game, as the two teams combined for 11 runs in the first Baseball four innings. UF second baseman Josh Adams broke out of a slump when he hit a two-run homer just inside the right-field foul pole in the first. The home run pulled UF within one after FSU put three on the scoreboard in the top of the frame. "Those two runs gave the team a little boost," Adams said. "Hitting's contagious, so everybody SEE BASEBALL, PAGE 19 UF SOFTBALL Florida hosts SEC foe Auburn By GREG LUCA Alligator Writer While the Southeastern Conference has been a dominant force in football and basketball for years, its softball teams have only started to earn national recognition recently. An overlooked conference has turned into one of the sport's cornerstones, and No. 6 Florida will continue its SEC schedule today against Auburn. Between the Gators' inaugural season in 1997 and the 2004 campaign, the SEC had only three seasons with more than three top-25-finishing teams and never landed more than two teams in the top-10. In the five seasons since, it has notched at least five top-25 teams or three top-10 teams four times. Last season might have been the conference's strongest yet, as three of the final four teams standing in the Women's College World Series came from the SEC, including then-No. 1 Florida, which fell to Washington in the finals. Now the Gators (18-3, 2-1 SEC) are faced with the challenge of trying to win their third-consecutive championship in a conference stacked with powerhouses like No. 8 Alabama, No. 9 Georgia, No. 14 LSU and No. 17 Tennessee. The next step in this quest will begin at 4 p.m., when they host the Tigers (15-7, 2-1 SEC) in a doubleheader at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. Even though Auburn is one of the few SEC teams not making an appearance in the top 25, the Gators know they can't take them lightly. "We just have to fight pitchby-pitch the whole game because every SEC team out there is tough, and it's going to be a battle," freshman Brittany Schutte said. As UF's opening SEC series Schutte against Ole Miss last weekend showed, nothing will come easy against any conference opponent. Despite earning a run-rule victory in the first game, the Gators got all they could handle from the Rebels in Game 2, falling 6-4 in extra innings. "Just because you beat a team by 10 runs SEE SOFTBALL, PAGE 19 Tucker immune to pressure verybody wants to be The Man. But not everybody can handle being The Man. With two outs and the bases loaded against FSU in the fifth inning, UT sophomore Preston Tucker walked to the plate, took four pitches and trotted down to first base, extending Florida's lead to 7-5. Tucker is writing the book on how to handle being The Man. After a stellar freshman campaign in which Tucker hit .364 with 15 home runs and a school-record 85 RBIs, the first baseman is no longer the nation's best kept hitting secret. Teams don't want to let the power-hitting lefty beat them, which means Tucker gets little more than table scraps at the plate every game. The Seminoles knew Tucker was hungry and not to be messed with, so they made the diplomatic decision to pay the bully half of their lunch money to just go away and leave them Kyle Maistri alone, rather than chalKyle Points lenging him kma istri@all1igator org t ih n to a fight and risk losing their entire meal. The impressive part of the whole thing is with all the pressure on Tucker to live up to expectations and devour everything in sight, he's more than happy to go hungry if his teammates benefit as a result. Instead of hacking at pitches out of the zone in an effort to boost his power numbers, the sophomore is showing immense maturity by beSEE KYLE, PAGE 19 UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL U Tickets for the Gators' matchup with USF in the National Invitation Tournament on Thursday are available at the Gator Ticket Office or by calling 1-800-34-GATOR, ext. 6800.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 19 Gators face unexpected test from rival Seminoles Match was originally set for Feb. 24 By ANDREW OLSON Alligator Writer It's not the way UF coach Andy Jackson wanted it to play out, but today is a big match for the men's tennis team. The No. 7 Gators (12-2,4-0 Southeastern Conference) are off to their best start since 2005 in SEC play, but that won't be a factor against out-ofconference and in-state rival No. 20 FSU (10-3,3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). Jackson's approach is to schedule non-conference opponents in January and February to have the team focused on SEC play during March and April. Originally, the match was set for Feb. 24 but was rained out and rescheduled for today at 4 p.m. The FSU match will be Jackson's first opportunity to win his 100th contest at home during his tenure at UF. Florida is undefeated at home this season, including wins over No. 11 Illinois and No. 28 Georgia Tech, and the Gators are 9-1 against the Seminoles under Jackson, with a current three-game winning streak in the series. The players are still excited to face their in-state rival. "I was debating the other day, 'Who would I rather beat: an SEC team or Florida State?' freshman Bob Van Overbeek said. "I couldn't come up with an answer. SEC wins are special, but this is Florida State." Van Overbeek's impressive play at the No. 4 position has been valuable in Florida's recent victories. At that spot, the Boca Raton native will likely match up against another freshman, Connor Smith. Smith and the rest of the Seminoles are coming off a heartbreaking 4-3 loss to No. 38 Notre Dame on Sunday, and they'll face a Florida team that has Men's changed its look and Tennis gained confidence since Feb. 24. One change has been made in doubles, where senior Daniel Cash has become Van Overbeek's partner. "I have a lot of confidence in Daniel because he's a senior and a high-level doubles player," Jackson said. Cash and Van Overbeek are 3-3 this spring after two close losses last weekend. Van Overbeek's other doubles partner, freshman Billy Federhofer, will likely return to the court soon. "Billy is a special returner, and he's a young player who needs to get experience, so I need to get him in matches," Jackson said. "It's a very good situation for us. You could say that it's a rotation between them that we have going." There does not appear to be any rotation in the singles lineup coming any time soon. No. 6 junior Alexandre Lacroix has won six-consecutive matches at the No. 1 spot since the team returned home from the ITA Team Indoor Tournament in Charlottesville, Va. Five of those six wins have come since the match against FSU was postponed. Lacroix will likely face No. 22 Jean-Yves Aubone. Aubone is coming off an upset victory over No. 19 Casey Watt of Notre Dame. Sophomore Nassim Slilam will also have a streak on the line, as he enters today's matchwith 12-straight wins, mostly at the No. 6 spot. When combined with the No. 5 court, lately played by freshman Sekou Bangoura Jr., Florida is 26-2 at the bottom two spots. Bangoura, a native Floridian, said before the originally scheduled match that while the team tries to maintain the same focus for every opponent, it's hard not to get more "pumped" for FSU. After Sunday's victory over Alabama, he confirmed not much has changed. "We're still excited," Bangoura said. SEC takes aim at Pac-10 Ana Goni-Lessan UF left fielder Francesca Enea and the Gators have gone 53-2 in SEC play during the past tv Bullpen allows one hit in five innings | BASEBALL, from page 17 kind of followed after that." Adams drove in another run when he roped a single with the bases loaded in the fourth inning. Since going 3 for 3 on opening day, Feb. 19, the junior has hit just .263. He said he has been impatient in the batter's box. "It's baseball," he said. "You get anxious at times." The Seminoles entered Tuesday averaging 10 runs per game and appeared to be on track for another offensive outburst when cleanup hitter Mike McGee belted a threerun homer off freshman Hudson Randall in the first. Randall allowed two more runs in the next frame. But unlike the last meeting between the two teams, when FSU chased starter Anthony DeSclafani before he could even get one out, the Gators' pitching staff settled down. The Seminoles were held scoreless and managed only one hit in the last seven innings against Randall and relievers Nick Maronde and Kevin Chapman. Maronde, who has been inconsistent this season, allowed no hits in three innings while striking out three. The performance was much better than his outing Sunday against -Charleston Southern, when he gave up two runs Chapman in 1 1/3 innings. "When a guy doesn't do as well as you'd hoped, I truly want to get him out there as quickly as I possibly can to get their feet wet again," O'Sullivan said. "If they're good, they're good." SOFTBALL, from page 17 doesn't mean the next game in the SEC that that's gonna happen," catcher Tiffany DeFelice said. "Every team is going to give you a dog fight." Despite the strength of the conference, UF has faired incredibly well over the past two seasons, going a combined 53-2 en route to a pair of SEC titles. This, along with the fact that Florida was the preseason pick to win the SEC East and is now the highest-ranked team in the conference, means every opponent will be gunning for the Gators. "People always come after us hard just cause we're Florida and we beat a lot of teams up in the past," senior Francesca Enea said. "They're going to come with everything and you never know what's going to happen so we have to be our best every day. "We can't just show up and win we have to show our heart and our KYLE, from page 17 ing selective and taking his walks. Tucker's on-base percentage is a robust .493 after Tuesday's game against FSU, up from .419 a year ago. His slugging percentage is a "paltry" .550 compared to last year's .628, but saving outs is more important than hitting for an extra base or two, not that I expect Tucker to be kept under .600 for much longer. The arrival of freshman Austin Maddox has given the Gators another run-producing slugger in the middle of the lineup, which allows Tucker to take what opponents give him. Maddox leads the team in homers and RBIs, thanks in part to Tucker. Though his power numbers have taken a hit, Tucker's ability to hit the fight." There was a time when college softball was completely dominated by the Pacific-10 Conference, which is filled with perennial powers like UCLA, Arizona, Stanford and defending champion Washington. "Every team is going to give you a dog fight." Tiffany DeFelice UF junior catcher However, the SEC is quickly gaining ground, and UF has shown its mettle by going 3-2 against the Pac-10 in games played on the West Coast over the last three years. "It definitely motivates us and gives us credibility because the SEC hasn't been known like the Pac-10 has been known in softball," junior Kelsey Bruder said. "But we're coming up with teams like Georgia and Alabama and when they come out and do things against the West Coast, it really gives us a great name. ball for power certainly hasn't. The only time he left the plate without an RBI in his 2-for-3 performance was a blistering line drive to center field, and his sacrifice fly in the fourth inning was a foot away from being a grand slam when FSU right fielder James Ramsey caught it at the wall. The inning prior, Tucker showed the packed crowd that he can still do more than trot down to first base when he blasted a solo home run over the right-center field wall. He can trot around all four bases if necessary. On pg. 21 of Tucker's book on how to be The Man it says: "Inbetween taking walks for the betterment of your team, make sure to launch a few of your trade-mark light-tower homers." After all, you can't be The Man without getting the girls. And chicks dig the long ball.

20, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 2010 Gators seek friendly confines to quell losing streak 0 SLOPPY PLAY COST UF ITS LAST TWO CONTESTS. By TONI-ANN MILLER Alligator Writer There is no place like being home on familiar territory after a disappointing loss on the road for athletes, and the Florida lacrosse team will benefit from that Wednesday. UF (3-3, 0-1 American Lacrosse Conference) will host the Marist Red Foxes (2-2) in the first match of its three-game homestand and will look to rebound from a two-game losing streak. However, playing in Gainesville won't guarantee a turnaround for the Gators, as their recent troubles run deeper than location. The team's poor defense and inconsistent offense worry head coach Amanda O'Leary heading into the matchup against the Red Foxes. In its last two games, a 13-11 loss at home to Georgetown and a 16-8 defeat at Johns Hopkins, UF has been plagued by its inability to maintain a high level of play, especially in the second half. Florida allowed 29 goals and had 43 turnovers in those two games. "Our team defense is still weak," O'Leary said. "I don't think we've jelled as a team, defensively. We have, right now, seven individuals that are playing defense versus seven players that are playing as a team." O'Leary is concerned by the team's poor help defense when a defender is beaten by an opponent. And she said UF will need to "fin-and more immediately -Marist. ish" on offense to compete against "Unless we see improvement in the remaining teams on its schedule those two areas, we will just continUF midfielder Caroline Chesterman is the Gators' third-leading goal-scorer with 11. She has been one of the consistent performers in an ever-changing lineup as Florida searches for the best combination. ue to plateau versus getting better," O'Leary said. To improve, O'Leary and her coaching staff have changed the starting lineup each game to find the best on-field pairings for UF. Freshman midfielder Caroline Chesterman hasn't had to worry about the shuffling, as she has been a staple in the lineup since the second game of the season. She has scored 11 of the team's 77 goals so far. She said the team knows it can compete against talented teams, as it did against Georgetown, but the key is to maintain that confidence when it takes on Marist. "We do have the skill and the athleticism to win," Chesterman said. "We just have to play to our abilities." Fellow freshman midfielder Brittany Dashiell has started every game this season, and she has 12 of UF's scores. Freshman attacker Ashley Bruns leads the team with 14 goals and 14 assists on the season, and she too has started every game. So when the Gators play at 6:30 p.m. against the Red Foxes, some of the usual starters will be on the field, but O'Leary will have to pick the best 12-player group for the defensive and offensive cohesiveness that has eluded the Gators so far. "Hopefully, we'll be able to find people that click on the attack and dick in the midfield and click on the defensive end, and then we'll be in good shape," O'Leary said. "We're working to get to that right now."
