Professor wins $30,000


Rea Award is given annually


By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF professor Mary Robison
turned her short stories into tall
stacks of cash.
Robison recently received the
prestigious Rea Award for the
Short Story along with $30,000.
The award is given annually by
a panel of three judges and is spon-
sored by the Dungannon Founda-
tion. It goes to authors who have
made a significant contribution to
the short story as an art form, ac-
cording to the award's website.
Robison, who has focused pri-
marily on novel writing as of late,
did not expect to receive the award
because she had not written a short
story in some time.


"I couldn't have been more sur-
prised," Robison said. "I hadn't
written a short story in a while. I
thought it was a mistake."
She was also surprised by the
prize money.
"I couldn't have been more
surprised. I hadn't written
a short story in a while. I
thought it was a mistake."
Mary Robison
UF professor

"There was some mention of
getting my address to send me a
check," she said. "I said 'Oh God,
there's money involved?' They told
me, 'Yes, in fact, there's $30,000."'
Robison has been referred to as


a minimalist author, though she is
hesitant to label herself as such.
"[Minimalist] sounds to me like
you haven't worked very hard,"
she said. "It sounds like you're do-
ing the minimum. It's more about
selection and choosing exactly the
bits of description you need in the
story."
Over the course of her career,
Robison has published four short-
story collections: "Days," "An
Amateur's Guide to the Night,"
"Believe Them," and "Tell Me: 30
Stories."
Some of her short stories were
originally published in The New
Yorker, The Paris Review, Esquire,
GQ and Harvard Magazine.
Robison has also published four
novels, including "Why Did I Ever"
and the critically acclaimed "One
D.O.A., One on the Way," which
was featured on Oprah Winfrey's
2009 summer reading list.


Apartments fill


vacant rooms


* YEARLONG LEASES KEEP BUILDINGS OCCUPIED
DURING SUMMER MONTHS.

By ANDREW PANTAZI
Alligator Contributing Writer

The students may be out of town, but apartment own-
ers aren't worried.
Because most local apartments require that tenants
sign one-year leases, which includes the summer se-
mester, area apartment owners are not
Around concerned about finding tenants for the
Gainesville summer, said Andres Tinoco, a leasing
and marketing manager for University
Commons.
Furthermore, despite a decreased enrollment at UF,
the overall vacancy rate for area apartments is trending
downward.
The apartment vacancy rate in March, the last month
of available data, was 11.9 percent, down from last year's
13 percent.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Senate approves


Charles' Cabinet


By JOEY FLECHAS
Alligator Writer

The first Senate meeting of the
summer semester saw the ap-
proval of 53 new Cabinet mem-
bers, ranging from agency chairs
to presidential advisers.
Student Body President Ash-
ton Charles touted the qualifica-
tions of each of the 53 candidates,
all of whom were eventually
approved. A Q-and-A session,
which sometimes resembled a
debate, preceded the vote for
each candidate.
The Senate approved Zack


Goldstein as the new chairman
for Accent Speakers Bureau, but
not without 15 minutes of discus-
sion over the issue of access to
VIP tickets for Accent-sponsored
events.
VIP tickets
to Accent-spon-
sored events are
made available
to senators and
Accent staffers
Charles on a first-come,

Center to house joint research

0 CENTER'S DESIGN AIMS
TO PROMOTE TEAMWORK.

By ALEX CHACHKEVITCH
Alligator Writer

UF President Bernie Machen and
other UF officials dedicated the Bio-
medical Sciences Building Tuesday.
The building's innovative design
is intended to encourage scientists of
different colleges to work in teams,
according to a UF press release.
The building's work spaces are
mostly open and lack the confined
offices that characterize most labo-
ratories. The building's labs feature
large windows that are supposed to
make the environment more well-lit
and comfortable.
Aside from promoting shared
space, the open design is also ex-
pected to encourage the sharing of
ideas, according to a press release.
The facility, which was complet-
ed in October after about three years
of construction, will house research
centers and programs such as the UF
Diabetes Center of Excellence, the
Center for Translational Research in
Neurodegenerative Disease and the Courtesy of the UF Health Science Center
Rehabilitation Research Program. College of Medicine Dean Michael L. Good, College of Engineering
The $90.5-million, eight-story
building is located on the northeast Dean Cammy Abernathy, UF President Bernie Machen and College
corner of Center Drive and Mowry of Public Health and Health Professions Dean Michael Perri cele-
Road. brate the new UF Biomedical Sciences Building on Tuesday.

UF alumna wins


$1,500 in contest
By ANDREW PANTAZI
Alligator Contributing Writer

About seven years after graduation, one UF alumna is master-
ing the art of professional social networking.
The National Society of Collegiate Scholars named Jamie
Nacht Farrell as the society's most active alumna on Brazen Ca-
reerist, a social networking tool.
Brazen Careerist is based on a feed of top ideas, similar to
Facebook's news feed, that employers peruse before hiring, said
Janine Deegan, a communications coordinator for Brazen Ca-
reerist.
The award is a $1,500 scholarship that Farrell said she will
use to become certified in Six Sigma, a management tool de-
signed to increase corporate efficiency.
Farrell is an executive marketer for higher education compa-
nies, and she receives two to three six-figure-salary job offers a
week, she said.
Farrell, who graduated from UF in 2003 with degrees in psy-
chology and education, attributes the job offers to social net-
working. In particular, she said her presence on LinkedIn, an-
other professional social networking tool that focuses on sharing
job experiences and online resumes, has been helpful.
"Probably the best thing I did was that I got heavily involved
in LinkedIn right after I graduated," said Farrell,
Student who owns a home in Palm Beach and lives in Dal-
Life las. "For anyone in college, LinkedIn has by far
been the most helpful in networking and social me-
dia."
Brazen Careerist is a good tool for people between the ages of
25 and 40, Farrell said.
She won the award on Brazen Careerist because she used a
number of different social media tools to connect with people on
the website.
"She was the most active person, using the most tools to con-
nect with people," said Deegan. "She got a lot of people into the
group. She used a blog, Twitter and other social media. She did a
lot to get people buzzing."
The award was created to encourage graduates of the National
Society of Collegiate Scholars program to connect with each oth-
er and create professional relationships, said Deegan.
"Brazen Careerist allows people to be more than a resume,"
Deegan said. "It lets employers hire them for their ideas more
than work experience."

Man arrested in shooting


* VICTIM WAS SHOT IN ARMPIT.
BULLET REMAINS IN LOWER BACK.
By KATHERINE BEIN
Alligator Writer
kbein@alligator.org

A suspect was arrested Tuesday in con-
nection to a recent shooting of a Gainesville
man who remains in recovery.
Anton Watson, 30, is being charged with
armed burglary and attempted murder, ac-
cording to a Gainesville Police report. Bail is
set at $200,000.
At 11:25 p.m. on April 1, police responded
to a call that someone had been shot at Sher-
wood Apartments, 3557 SW 19th Ave. Of-
ficers found Farouk Kamma II being loaded
into an ambulance to be treated for a gunshot
wound, the report stated.
Kamma later told police he had been in his
home with his girlfriend and their son when
someone knocked on the door asking for a
girl named Shaunda, the report stated.


Kamma told the man there was no one in-
side by that name, but a second man came up
and put a semi-automatic handgun in Kam-
ma's face, according to the report.
Kamma said he was shot through his door
as he pushed against it to keep the two men
from forcing their way inside. The bullet
pierced his right armpit and remains lodged
in his lower back, the report stated.
During police interviews, Kamma said he
thought he recognized one of
Local the men from high school, and
NeWS named Watson as a suspect. He
then identified him in a picture
lineup, the report stated.
Watson was arrested by GPD and, after
being read his rights, admitted to having been
at Kamma's apartment that night.
He said while he was there, two men did
threaten Kamma at gunpoint. But Watson de-
nied being one of them, although he gave no
reason for failing to report the crime sooner,
the report stated.

Editorial

The Wrong Cards

Tea Party is a few cards

short of full deck

Just when we thought the Tea Party movement could
not get any more ridiculous, one company has started
selling its own take on the Iraqi Most Wanted Playing
Cards, except they feature politicians.
The company, Shenandoah Valley Tea Party Pa-
triots Inc., claims the politicians in the 54-card deck are the
"most dangerous progressives in Washington who are up
for re-election" and encourages local tea parties to buy the
cards so they can sell them at rallies.
The deck features eight Republicans and 46 Dem-
ocrats, with John McCain as the ace of spades and Nancy
Pelosi as the joker. The company suggests that people
should mail their cards to the politicians with a message
saying they will be calling their bluff on election day.
Most of those letters will probably be met with little more
than an eye roll before being promptly thrown in the garbage
by congressional interns, but it would not be the Tea Party if
they did not throw in a couple of cheap shots.
We can't help but notice the prejudiced under-
current. Barney Frank, a prominent and openly gay rep-
resentative from Massachusetts, is portrayed as the deck's
queen of hearts. It is this kind of immature behavior that
makes the entire movement seem more like poorly veiled
hate than legitimate politics. It has to stop.
The political divide in America is hitting an all-
time high, and it baffles us that this is considered accept-
able. While the Tea Party claims to be grassroots with
members from all political parties, all we ever see are peo-
ple holding up racist signs and calling people names.


Yelling Fire


We thought plans for
a fire assessment fee died
years ago, but the Alachua
County Commission is pull-
ing out the Jaws of Life to try
and make its recent version
of this terrible idea a reality.
Unlike property taxes,
which are calculated based
on the assessed value of a
building, the proposed as-
sessment is a "per-dwelling"
fee - a catchall that would
include apartments - calcu-
lated based on the size of a
building and whether it's in
an urban or rural area.
Homeowners living in
unincorporated Alachua
County could end up paying
more than $200 a year for the
fee, regardless of the value
of their homes. This would
decrease taxes on high-value
homes while increasing them
for lower-value homes.For
such a progressive county, it


sounds like a regressive tax.
The county says the as-
sessment would raise about
$8 million every year, but it
is unlikely that fire services
would see a budget increase.
When the city considered a
$30-per-house fire assess-
ment fee in 2008, it was clear
it was just trying to free up
general fund money for
Gainesville Police Depart-
ment.
If we knew this money
would ensure firefighters
would get the best equip-
ment and training then we
might grin and bear it, but
we don't think this is the
case. We understand it costs
money to put out fires, and
the last thing we want to
see is underfunded first re-
sponders. But this assess-
ment sticks the bill with the
wrong people, and we want
to see it go up in smoke.

Kagan's experience is not a problem


s someone who is fascinated by the U.S. Supreme
Court, I've been consuming every bit of informa-
tion about President Obama's recent nominee, Elena
Kagan. Unfortunately, it seems as if the Alligator's Editorial
Board has not consumed even half of that information.
Tuesday's editorial, "Poor Judgment," displayed poor
judgment questioning Kagan's nomination on unsubstantial
grounds and misrepresented what little facts that were cited.
The main complaint seemed to be that Kagan "has no experi-
ence as a judge, federal or otherwise."
Perhaps it would have been helpful to mention that for-
mer President Bill Clinton nominated Kagan for a federal
judgeship in 1999. Her nomination was stalled by a Repub-
lican-controlled Congress that did what every partisan Con-
gress does when a president of the opposite party is nearing
the end of his term: delay voting on a court nomination in
the hopes that its party will win the White House and then
nominate someone with its ideological views. Kagan's nomi-
nation was not rejected. It died out because a president's
unconfirmed nominations expire at the end of the presiden-
tial term. Because the next president was a Republican, pre-
sumably Kagan would not be nominated for another federal
judgeship, so she pursued another legal career path.
Ultimately, what the writer failed to understand is that
Kagan's lack of experience as a judge is not the end of the
world. In addition to former Chief Justice Earl Warren, more
than one-third of all Supreme Court justices, including the
late Chief Justice William Rehnquist, did not serve as judges
before joining our nation's highest court. In fact, Kagan's
experience as solicitor general is actually more applicable
to serving as a Supreme Court justice than most judgeships.
The solicitor general represents the U.S. government in up
to two-thirds of all Supreme Court cases each year. As such,
the solicitor general has more experience with the Supreme
Court and insight into its decision-making process than most
judges at any level, aside from the Supreme Court justices
themselves. In fact, the solicitor general is often referred to as


Deborah Swerdlow "the 10th justice." True, Kagan has
Speaking Out served in this position for a little
more than a year, but in that year
she has held her own in oral argu-
ments against the court's fiercest justice, Antonin Scalia-a
feat that should not be minimized.
The Editorial Board's characterization of former President
Eisenhower's comment about the late Chief Justice Earl War-
ren was also irresponsible and misleading. Eisenhower said
appointing Warren was the "biggest damned-fool mistake I
ever made" not because Warren simply shifted the court's
politics but because Warren shifted the court in a liberal di-
rection that Eisenhower-a Republican-disagreed with. We
would expect a Democratic president to feel the same way
had he or she selected Chief Justice John Roberts and Associ-
ate Justice Samuel Alito, given that these two conservatives
have facilitated a massive rightward shift in their four years
on the court.
Furthermore, the writer's concern that "[t]he last thing the
court needs is an unknown quantity shaking up the system"
is quite an exaggeration. That line makes Kagan sound like
a radical extremist yearning to burst free from her current
mold. You know, the mold she's been in for the past 50 years,
just waiting until she has that chance to be nominated to the
Supreme Court and then she can do whatever her radical
heart desires.
It's fine to raise legitimate questions about how many
cases Kagan might have to recuse herself from given her
position as solicitor general, or to ponder the implications of
having an Ivy League-educated court when most Americans
don't attend Ivy League schools. But the questions this edi-
torial raised about Kagan's experience were unfounded and
presented without context. Because most student readers
probably use the Alligator as their only news source, the edi-
torial did the university community a significant disservice.

Letter to the Editor
Student criticizes Southwest
Recreation Center security
I wanted to let the Alligator know
how Southwest Recreation Center is
keeping students' personal belong-
ings safe.
I just had my wallet stolen out
of my locker this afternoon. You're
probably wondering how someone
gets a wallet stolen out of a locked-
locker.
Well, the gym is providing mem-
bers with locks and keys that have
duplicates. In the past semester, I
have, on accident, opened at least
two locks that did not belong to me
with my own issued key. I quickly
realized these weren't my belongings
and locked it back up. I remembered
thinking to myself that this could be-
come a problem if the gym did not
fix the issue. Unfortunately, it seems
that I am the first victim. I came back
after working out and found that my
wallet, which was inside the locker


on top of my backpack, was now
missing, although my cell phone and
keys were spared. I am 100 percent
positive my wallet was in the locker
because I had just put my Gator 1
Card back in it after renting the lock.
I asked to speak to a supervisor, and
I was told, "Thefts happen, and it is
not Southwest's responsibility."
After filing a police report, I was
told the same thing. This drives me
crazy because it completely defeats
the purpose of providing locks to
safeguard your belongings if other
students have access to the lock. I am
now missing my driver's license, two
credit cards, my Social Security card,
AAA card, health insurance card and
$37, all because of Southwest's negli-
gence. You can rest assured that I will
be bringing my own lock from now
on, however I thought the rest of
UF should know about the crummy
locker system.

Guest column

Government spends efficiently


debate is important. Especially when it
comes to something as vital as health care.
But when it comes to debate, as one sena-
tor put it, "You are entitled to your own opinion,
but you are not entitled to your own facts."
Bryan Griffin's Tuesday column was long
on opinion, but misleading on facts. First of all,
Democrats agree with Griffin's focus on efficien-
cy. It's humorous, though, that this point came
after an entire column whining about the role
of government. It may be Griffin's opinion that
government isn't efficient, but it's a fact that the
government's track record on efficiency is excel-
lent. In fact, government is the most efficient dis-
burser of benefits in the United States. Medicare
and Social Security overhead costs are a minus-
cule portion of their total cost. Private insurance
overhead is three times as much.
Implying that private charity will replace the
billions of dollars in support that government
provides for children, the elderly and the disad-
vantaged is ridiculous. To then go on to say that
these programs are inefficient is equally ridicu-
lous. They may not turn a profit for a corpora-
tion, but that's not their intention. They provide
the assistance they were created to provide.
Shoehorned into this column about "effi-
ciency" is the complaint that healthy people are


Nicholas mandated by the recent
Mildebrath health care legislation to
buy insurance. This entire
Speaking Out anti-mandate argument
highlights a split that I've
noticed recently between the Democratic and Re-
publican parties: Democrats like the mandate be-
cause it provides help for the people who need it,
because it's constitutional and because it works.
Republicans don't like it because it was proposed
by Democrats and because they need to moan
about the "unconstitutional" bill from now until
November. Ask Bill McCollum, Republican can-
didate for governor right here in Florida, how his
lawsuit to overturn health care reform is going in
courts (hint: not far).
Democrats understand that we're not being
forced to choose between private charity and
government assistance. There is a place for both,
and both are essential to a healthy society. But
it's simply untrue to say that government is inef-
ficient, and it's simply untrue to say that Demo-
crats support government programs to help
people just for kicks. When we see a problem, we
set out to solve it, and sometimes that solution
includes the government.
Nicholas Mildebrath is the editorial chair of Col-
lege Democrats.


Guest column

Congress should be more concerned for public's interest


Tr is week, the director of the Congressional Budget Of-
fice announced the health care legislation is going to cost
about $115 billion more than expected. This brings the
total in health care spending up to about $1 trillion - so far.
I have a pet skunk. His name is Odysseus. He is 4 years old
and was rescued from an exotic pet store. He is a creature of
little action who knows what is necessary and what isn't. He
would make the perfect modem legislator.
The added $115 billion to the already hefty price tag
for health care reform should come as no shock to anyone. I
bet living under our government would be far less expensive
if we replaced many of the spend-happy politicians in Wash-


Bryan Griffin ington with pet skunks. Just imagine:
Speaking Out It wouldn't cost America trillions of
dollars to satisfy politicians' egos with
"legacy, landmark legislature," but only
about $40 a month in vegetables and the occasional peanut.
Unfortunately, politicians aren't so easily satisfied. Instead, the
modem politician desires giant spending projects that only glo-
rify their own time with little concern for cost or practicality.
They should be looking out for America's best in-
terests-including financial interests. We are now witnessing
in Europe what happens when governments run out of other
people's money to borrow and spend. Our federal deficit last


month was four times higher than it was in April 2009. We are
headed in the wrong direction. We are different from Greece in
degree, but not in kind.
Congress needs to act more concerned with the interest of
the public than with its own agenda. Seeing as how our gov-
ernment has no interest in implementing free-market strategies
to accomplish goals, I see little immediate hope for a reduction
in the bill Congress is racking up.
So: Odysseus for Congress in 2012! While many mod-
em legislators see "protecting our financial interests" as a gray
area, with Odysseus, it's all black and white.

Members debate VIP


Accent event tickets

SENATE, from page 1

Student Alliance Sen. Alan Yanuck, representative for
the Keys Residential Complex, pressed Goldstein about
the issue of fairness.
"Many of the people who voted for me have said that
these tickets are not a good idea," Yanuck said. "No stu-
dents are more important than any other students."
Safety was Goldstein's primary concern.
"Knowing who's sitting closest to the speaker helps
us," he said.
Although security has always been a concern, U.S. Sen.
John Kerry's 2007 appearance at UF, during which a UF
student was Tasered by university police, underscored
event organizers' need to know who is sitting close to the
speakers, Goldstein said.
"Many of the people who voted for me have
said that these tickets are not a good idea. No
students are more important than any other
students."

Marketing strategies target summer transfer students, freshmen


APARTMENTS, from page 1

62nd Blvd., does not have a problem
with vacancies. Until December, it was at
100 percent capacity, said Rob Wright, a
property manager at the apartment com-
plex. Wright added that since December,
the Woodlands has only had a few empty
units remain.
"We've had a handful of vacancies that
have come to us, so it's not a problem,"
Wright said. "We go on campus and pro-


mote the apartments. We know that a lot
of transfers come in Summer A."
University Commons, located at 2601
SW Archer Road, is also successfully get-
ting people to sign leases.
Some apartment managers are us-
ing financial incentives to attract tenants.
University Commons, for instance, takes
10 percent off the lease price if the renter
signs within 24 hours of coming in and
pays by the first of every month, Tinoco
said. Other apartments offer special rates
specifically for the summer months.


"A lot of students will take into that,"
Tinoco said. "It entices a lot of students."
University Commons has filled most
of its units because students mostly sign
one-year leases, Tinoco said.
"We have a lot of peo-
Around ple looking for sublets,"
Gainesville he said. "They're trying
to find people to fill their
spots. The units are mostly filled up from
the previous year of leasing."
The Woodlands of Gainesville attempts
to attract incoming freshmen by passing


out promotional material during orienta-
tions, Wright said.
University Commons preemptively re-
cruits new tenants by visiting local high
schools that have good relationships with
the university, Tinoco said.
"Nowadays, the savvier people are go-
ing to the Internet. People aren't going to
pick up a newspaper the way they used to,"
Tinoco said. "People Google 'Gainesville

get those people."

Pulitzer Prize winners, authors meet for story summit


By ERIN RAUCH
avenue writer


Dust off your morals and pray for calamity.
Ellis Amburn, former editor to the stars and au-
thor of seven biographies, is just one of the 30
writers coming to a workshop at the UF.
"You must be spiritually connected with a
power greater than you to have a theme and
a set of moral values against which to judge
experience," he said. "Calamity makes you eli-
gible for a spiritual experience."
Weimer Hall will be echoingwith the voices
of five Pulitzer Prize winners and 10 UF alumni
Friday to Sunday at The Storytellers' Summit.
A welcome reception at 6 p.m. in Ustler Hall
kicks off the summit Friday at 6 p.m. in Ustler
Hall.
"Because of the economic problems around
the United States, the newspapers and others
who sponsor writers' workshops have been
dropping out," journalism professor Mike Foley
said. He decided to team up with William Mc-
Keen, UF department of journalism professor
and chairman, to start the summit.


"It turned out to be a pretty impressive ar-
ray," he said.
Michael Connelly, best-selling crime author
and UF alumnus, Rick Bragg, Pulitzer Prize
winner and author of "Somebody Told Me,"
and Roy Peter Clark, director of The Poynter In-
stitute, will be speaking at the summit, among
others.


"Even those
without Pulitzer
Prizes are terrific
writers," Foley said.
"They are also will-
ing to share their
success in terms
of how they learned
to write, and all of
them, as I know, are
really good at it."

The two-day summit features book sign-

currently working on a biography of Tim Tebow
titled "Finish Strong." The book is scheduled
for release in a year and a half, Amburn said.
Although Amburn said writing a book isn't
as hard as people think, he does offer some

Sexual health care on


By BRITT PERKINS
avenue writer

Until ObamaCare officially kicks
in, basic body maintenance can be
expensive but also a major neces-
sity. Specifically, I'm talking about birth
control and getting tested.
Not necessarily the most fun. Even
less so if you're considering the eco-
nomical route: the local health depart-
ment.
But I'm here to tell you, it's not as
bad as it sounds.
Here are some tips:
1. Have at least three hours to
burn.
Speeding up government employ-
ees isn't goingto happen.
2. Bring a photo ID and a pay stub
or awards letter.

The latter is for determining your
cost. You will often end up paying little
or nothing, even for birth control pills
and condoms.
3. Breathe.
This can be an easy thing to forget
when getting your blood taken.
4. Ask questions.
These people have seen it all, and
nothing you will say or ask is going to
impress or shock them. Just get the
information you need from a medi-
cal professional so you don't have to
wonder if something your roommate,
friend or Flavor Flav said is accurate.
5. Relax
Calm down, especially during the
swab, but also remember to do this
during the entire visit. Though easier
said than done, realize that everyone
in college and every adult, for that mat-


the cheap
ter, deals with sexual health. You are
not alone. It's definitely not a sexy pro-
cess but vital in ensuring sexy things
continue to happen for you.
Also, things like abstinence, mo-
nogamy and safe sex will reduce the
stress of these visits. Just saying Mul-
tiple risky encounters are obviously go-
ing to give you more to think about in
the waiting room.
6. Getting your results
You will get the HIV test results be-
fore you leave. Keep in mind that ex-
posures within three months may not
show up on the test.
It takes one to two weeks to get
the lab results for the other tests, so
keep phone number they give you.

Look good, stay cool in this summer's fashion


* STRIPES, BIG ACCESSORIES ARE
MUST-HAVES FOR SUMMER.

By ALISHA KINMAN
avenue writer

While fashion boutiques decorate their
storefronts to attract summer shoppers, the
time for students to start cleaning out their
closets is now.
Give away your daisy dukes, crocks and
low-rise jeans with the rest of those spring
things you no longer need. This summer is
all about being comfortable and choosing


the right accessories to match.
Macy's and Nordstroms have given shop-
pers a sneak peek of what to expect for sum-
mer trends. Floral patterns on mid-thigh
skirts and sundresses made the cut. Other
items to watch include denim and striped ap-
parel.
"Stripes will be very in this season. I've
seen it on cotton and silk shirts and on ac-
cessories too," said Christy Morgan, the own-
er of Dahlia in Thornebrook Village.
In addition, oversized canvas tote bags
paired with khaki mid-thigh shorts and a
white cotton button-down top can make for a
classic all-American look.
Rompers, white jeans, summer dresses
and mini-layered skirts are popular, said


Bethy Pierre, an employee at Macy's at the
Oaks Mall and public relations student at UF.
Harper's Bazaar, an elite fashion magazine,
recommends metallic blazers, pastels and
army green jackets as must-haves.

"Stripes will be very in this season. I've
seen it on cotton and silk shirts and on
accessories too."
CHRISTY MORGAN
owner of Dahlia

Also, Bazaar recommends invest-
ing in neutral colored gladiator san-
dals to match earth-toned outfits.
Remember, an outfit can appear drab with-


out its accessories.
Luckily, the skinny belt, chunky beaded
necklaces and leather-strap watches will be-
come popular commodities this season.
But you do not have to shop at high-end
clothing department stores to recreate a
look out of Vogue.
For instance, long, chunky neck-
laces can be found at Target for $16
compared to necklaces at Bloom-
ingdales that range from $40 to $100.
Keeping up with the latest trends might
come with a price tag, but the investment
of staying on top of the latest trends while
feeling better about the way you dress is not
worth forgoing.

How to survive, enjoy


the summer s slowdown


By DAVE JOHNSON
avenue writer

"You're staying in Gainesville for the
summer?" This is the last thing my friend
said to me after I had finished helping
him move out of his apartment a couple
of weeks ago. He didn't bother to wait
around for an answer or an explanation.
He simply peeled out of the dusty park-
ing lot, leaving me coated in a fine layer
of dirt and shame, alone in a city ren-
dered desolate in the summer months.
It can't all be bad, right? I'm pretty
sure there are perks to staying here this
summer and taking classes, but since
I've never done anything like this be-
fore, I'm left to face this long, deserted
stretch of a semester alone. To maintain
the sanity I'm risking by stayingthe sum-
mer in Gainesville, I need to find the sil-
ver lining of this sad, lonely cloud.
What comes to my mind first might
be the greatest benefit to living in
Gainesville during the summer: sig-
nificantly decreased zombie presence.


Significantly de-
creased human
presence, too,
for that matter.
Bottom line: I can
actually wear my
Dave Johnson socks instead of
Columnist usingthem as ar-
maments, and I
don't have to suf-
fer the indignity of carrying a Nerf gun
with me to class.
Also, I getto continue livingawayfrom
my parents, which is always better than
the opposite. Oh, you want curfews and
family dinners? I'll be right here, playing
Playstation 3 in my underwear and grow-
ing my beard in peace, suckers.
Dear readers (all eight of you), this
long summer ahead of us may seem
daunting. However, keep in mind that
there are perfectly good reasons to be
here over the summer. You just need to
find your own to not go crazy. Like being
able to find parking on campus.
Oh, and furthering your education.

Facebook update frustrates some loyal users


Privacy issues raise concerns about the site's safety


By MARGARET GRECO
avenue writer


Just when the e-dust settled and
pretty much everyone forgot what
the "old Facebook" looked like, the
unstoppable website did it again.
The company's new changes to pro-
files' information section strip us-
ers of any sort of individuality and
beg the question: Really?!
A few years ago, Facebook had
some semblance of credibility. Us-
ers had to prove their affiliation to
a college or company network, and
our parents hadn't heard of the site
yet.
Now the social networking site
feels more like a family reunion -
you're surrounded by people you
don't really want to talk to, but
somehow they seem to know way
too much about your life.
In the past few weeks, I have no-
ticed several friends threatening to
leave Facebook for good because
of privacy concerns and general
disenchantment with the site. The
disillusioned may gain followers
and notoriety if Facebook doesn't
clean up its act soon (which is high-
ly unlikely).

So, should we stay or should we
go?

PROS:
* There's really no alternative.
Well, there's MySpace and Twitter,
but those are pretty much just pun-
ishments. With no other competi-
tive alternative, leaving Facebook
may mean virtual social isolation.
Your friends will keep writing on
each other's walls and uploading
the party pics that you will never
be tagged in. And how will you stalk
people?
* It's convenient. If you are un-
der 30, a Facebook account has
almost become a prerequisite to
living. It's assumed that you have
one. Being a member of the site
grants you access via a singular
medium to most of the people that
you need to communicate with. It's
a one-stop shop and a lot easier
than calling or sending e-mails.
* It achieves its purpose: It con-
nects. There is no doubt about Fa-
cebook's connective nature. With
the addition of the News Feed fea-
ture, users might even feel a little
too connected to each other. Face-
book does keep us in contact with

our friends and family. But is it giv-
ing us too much contact?
* It's easier than doing some-
thing productive. Self-explanatory.

CONS:
* The new changes. The chang-
es to profile's information section
make it impossible to have unique
interests. Now the only informa-
tion users are allowed to include
in their profiles must be chosen
from a predetermined
On the list of information that
B can be linked to others'
profiles. Not only is this
annoying, it's a thinly veiled strat-
egy to make even more money by
targeting ads to our profiles.
* It's an extreme waste of time.
It can be fun, but it's a time-waster.
Anyone who has walked through
the computer labs on campus or
has been to Library West should
know this. When we have projects
to do, Facebook seems even more
appealing than ever.
* Family invasion. It can be awk-
ward when family members add you
on Facebook, and it's even more
awkward when they comment on
your status about having no recol-

election of last night. If you do suc-
cumb to the guilt trips and add
your parents and extended family,
Facebook's tricky privacy settings
keep you wondering, "Can I be sure
that they can't see my pictures/
wall/anything personal about me?"
Which brings me to...
* Is Facebook even capable of
keeping your information private?
In a May 5 article, The New
York Times reported that a glitch
allowed Facebook users to read
their friends' private chat conversa-
tions and see their '"online friends'
pending social requests."
This may not seem that scary or
surprising, but it is another reason
why people are getting freaked out
by the (lack of) control that Face-
book has over their personal infor-
mation. Lesson: If you don't want
absolutely everyone in the world to
have access to it, don't put it on Fa-
cebook.
The choice to delete or not to de-
lete (if you can even figure out how
to do it) is yours. But I'm predicting
that until someone creates some-
thing better and less controlling,
Facebook is here to stay and so will
be the majority of its current users.
Let's just hope the next Mark Zuck-
erberg isn't such a D-bag.

UF BASEBALL

Toledo makes return in 7-3 victory
By TYLER JETT
Alligator Staff Writer
tjett@alligator org

Tommy Toledo has been thinking about his last outing
for 59 days.
But in the sophomore's first appearance since March 14,
when he suffered a fractured nose and several broken bones
in his face after being hit by a line drive against Charleston
Southern, he blocked out the past.


"I was just surprised I kept throwing strikes in the
warm-up pitches. I was shaking up there, to be
honest, but that was a cool feeling."
Tommy Toledo
UF pitcher

Toledo received a standing ovation from the 3,147 Gators
fans in attendance when he entered in the seventh inning of
No. 4 Florida's (34-12, 17-7 Southeastern Conference) 7-3 win
against FAU (31-19) in McKethan Stadium Wednesday.
"That was unbelievable," Toledo said. "I wasn't expect-
ing that at all. I was just surprised I kept throwing strikes in
the warm-up pitches. I was shaking up there, to be honest,
but that was a cool feeling."
Catcher Mike Zunino said watching Toledo walk back on
the mound was special.
"I got chills out there when he went out there and got that
standing ovation," he said.
Zunino greeted Toledo at the mound before he started
warming up. The two slapped gloves and Zunino told him

Brooks nears UF games-played record


* SEC TOURNEY TO BEGIN TODAY.

By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer

For 188 consecutive games, senior Cor-
rie Brooks has shown up at the ballpark on
game day and done whatever her coaches
and teammates asked of her.
Whether the Gators needed a big-time
play at third base, a clutch game-tying or
game-winning hit in the bottom of the sev-
enth, or even an extra outfielder or reserve
pitcher, Brooks has always been there.
And when the No. 6 Gators (42-7, 20-4
Southeastern Conference) take the field to
play Auburn (30-23, 11-17 SEC) today at
2:30 p.m. in the first round of the SEC tour-
nament, Brooks will once again be there for
the 262nd time in her UF career, putting
her only 11 behind Ashley Boone for the
all-time Florida games-played record.
"I think it is significant because that just
says something about how great of a team


we are," Brooks said. "I've gotten the op-
portunity to play that many games because
our teams have been good enough to make
it that far, and it definitely says a lot for me
to be a starter on that good of a team."
It's been 824 days since Brooks last
missed a start on Feb. 9, 2008 against Mem-
phis- the fourth game of her sophomore
season.
Perhaps not coincidentally that was
about the same time
Brooks started bringing
her lucky gator head to
the games, a tradition
she's kept alive ever
since.
"One of the times I
Brooks was working at the ga-
tor farm they had a few
alligators that people had brought in, and
they were just throwing away the heads
and feet and everything, and I said 'Well
I'd like to have one of these,'" Brooks said.
"So I took it to the taxidermist and got it


done and since then I've just brought it on
every road trip and everything."
And while not many people usually
get to experience alligators that up-close
and personal, for the residents of the small
town of Christmas, that closeness with na-
ture is just the way of life.
The 3.6 square-mile town that's last re-
corded population was 1,369 is what has
made Brooks into the person she is today -
a girl who says her main hobbies are hunt-
ing, fishing and riding four-wheelers and
horses.
"That's pretty much just from living out
in the country and having really nothing
else to do," Brooks said. "We have a pond
with catfish in our back yard and growing
up with a family that was raised outdoors
and having them pass that stuff along to
me led to me taking it up and that's what
I like to do."
It is that upbringing that has led Brooks
to pursue a degree in Animal Science,

Tyus' plan


to stay


should


shock none


By ANTHONY CHIANG
achiang@alligator org

or some reason we were all
surprised.
Most of us assumed
the 6-foot-8 power forward who
couldn't buy playing time late in
games would opt to enter the NBA
Draft and would forgo his senior
season.
But Alex Tyus never really had
much of a choice but to return to
school, although his father, Thom-
as Tyus, gave off another impres-
s-on.
- s"I don't
think he has
anything to
gain by re-
turning to
the Univer-
Anthony Chiang sity of Flor-
Chiang Reaction ida basket-
achiang@alligator org ball wise,"
Thomas
said to the Orlando Sentinel. "I just
feel he just has not developed his
full potential. ... He can go back
and get his degree any time."
If Tyus hasn't fulfilled his po-
tential in the 70 games he has start-
ed during the last two seasons, I
don't know if he ever will max out
his talent.
On a squad that narrowly made
the NCAA Tournament last sea-
son, Tyus averaged 11.8 points per
game (fourth highest on the team),
while committing three and a half
turnovers for every one assist he
dished out.
Those aren't exactly the num-
bers team executives like Pat Ri-
ley are looking for in a first-round
draft pick.
With that being said, we should
commend the rising senior's deci-

to have fun.
The pitcher received a similar warm
greeting when he walked off the mound
after pitching a scoreless, yet far from
flawless, frame. Coach Kevin O'Sullivan
admitted he grew emotional watching To-
ledo pitch.
"As a coach, you get a little choked
up," he said. "I mean, you know how
tough it was to get back up here. To be
honest with you, if it was up to him,
he probably would have been ready to
go (last weekend) at Alabama. He was
chomping at the bit."
O'Sullivan said he wanted to hold the
pitcher until he could throw in a home
game. The coach does not know whether
Toledo will stay in the bullpen or become
a starter like he was before the metal
plates were put in his face.


Toledo needs to rebuild his arm
strength as if he was back in spring train-
ing, O'Sullivan said.
On Toledo's first pitch, Owls third
baseman Nick Burkhalter hit a hard line
drive just left of the pitcher for a single.
Nathan Pittman hit Toledo's third pitch
just as hard to the right
for a line out.
Toledo said he did not
think about his injury on
the mound, though.
FAU third baseman
Joey Burkhalter followed
O'Sullivan his teammate with a sin-
gle to right-center. After
throwing just his fourth pitch in almost
two months, Toledo received a visit from
Zunino.
The catcher told him to keep the ball
down and called for a breaking ball. To-
ledo recovered, throwing a strike.


anlgaior rime rnoro
Senior Corrie Brooks is 11 games away from breaking the UF games-played record. She hasn't
missed a game in 824 days. Ashley Boone, who played from 1998 to 2001, holds the record.


"I know he's thrown about three or
four bullpens, but to be as pinpoint as he
was, that was the Tommy Toledo of old
right there," Zunino said.
Zunino helped his hurler in the next
at-bat, picking Burkhalter off at first. To-
ledo then struck out Anthony Mesa with
a slider to end the inning, igniting the
crowd in the process.
"That was a pretty cool feeling," To-
ledo said. "I'm excited to get it over with,
but it was probably one of the best feel-
ings I've ever had here at Florida."
His teammates greeted him with a sim-
ilar reception.
"He battled real hard to get back into
it," said senior Matt den Dekker, who hit
one of UF's three home runs Wednesday.
"He comes out and works hard every day.
He's such a great kid, on and off the field.
To see him back out here like that, it was
awesome. It was a great moment for us."

And although the senior will
be leaving the softball program

ates in August,

ANTHONY, from page 20

leave UF unless he was guaranteed
to be a first-round selection. He
stuck by that sentiment.
ESPN's Chad Ford and Andy
Katz both believed it was very pos-
sible he would go undrafted and
advised Tyus to return to school
when making their NBA Draft pro-
jections. With only 60 players draft-
ed into the NBA each year, Ford
had him as the 116th best player on
his board.
Taking all that into account,
nobody should have been caught
off guard to learn of his return last
weekend.
Tyus did the same thing he
did last season when he threat-
ened to transfer.
But this year's decision will
benefit the team more than it does
Tyus.
The Gators will now bring back
all five starters from last season and
are poised to be a top-three team in
the Southeastern Conference next
year.
CBS's Gary Parrish ranked Flor-
ida as the 10th best team in his pre-
season top 25, which was released
yesterday.
On the other hand, Tyus' deci-
sion to return won't necessarily
help his draft stock much.
He will be spending most of his
time at power forward next season,
despite contending that his natural
position is at the three. But Chan-
dler Parsons has already won that
role after a stellar junior year.
And it's not like Tyus won't
have competition at his position.
For some reason coach Billy Dono-
van didn't trust him at the end of
games as he opted to use Dan Wer-
ner in crucial situations most of the
time instead.
This year Tyus will have to com-
pete with UF's new five-star recruit
Patric Young for time in the front
court.
Still, coming back was his only
option and the team will be better
for it. Tyus on the other hand, I'm
not so sure about.

UF tennis teams to begin


NCAA Championships


Lauren Embree and the women's tennis team have won 17 straight matches and are
undefeated at home this season. The team last lost Feb. 14 against UCLA.


UF TRACK & FIELD

Gators ready for SECs


By JESSE SIMONTON
Alligator Writer


The UF track and field teams head to
Knoxville, Tenn., today to compete in the
Southeastern Conference Outdoor Cham-
pionships on a mission: bring home cham-
pionships.
Second isn't an option.
"We felt like we let ourselves down last
year," UF coach Mike Holloway said. "We
were second in everything, with the excep-
tion of the regional meet. In every one of
those instances, we could have won the
meet. This year, we are making sure we're
at our absolute best."
The men's team finished the first part
of its mission at the 2010 NCAA Indoor
Championship - now, it looks to do the
same in Volunteer country.
Although the men's team finished sec-
ond last year, the women's team is looking
to defend its outdoor title from a season
ago.
The men's team is seeking its first SEC
Outdoor Championship since the 1987
season, while the women's team is seeking
the prestigious "Triple Crown" after win-
ning the 2009 SEC Cross Country Cham-
pionship and the 2010 SEC Indoor Cham-
pionship.
The "Triple Crown" has only been ac-
complished once in school history when
the women's team did it in the 1996-97
season.
The Gators head to Knoxville as two
top-10 programs, ready to face the stiffest


competition in the country.
The men's team is ranked third nation-
ally, the highest-rated SEC men's team.
The women's team is also in the top 10,
coming in 10th nationally, second in the
conference behind No. 2 LSU.
The SEC boasts some of the most elite
track and field programs in the country,
with eight men's teams ranked in the top
25. The SEC has four programs represent-
ed in the women's top 25.
The Gators come to the Outdoor Cham-
pionships looking to defend nine individ-
ual titles from last year's
outdoor meet.
All-American sprint-
ers Jeff Demps, Tony
McQuay and Calvin
Smith look to lead the
fastest team in America
to more records. The
Holloway Gator men's team enters
the meet with the top-ranked 400-meter
runner in the world, Smith, and the top-
ranked 4x400 meter relay team in the
world.
Smith, the top-ranked 400 meter runner
in the world, leads the top 4x100 meter re-
lay team in the nation.
Other Gator All-Americans including
thrower Mariam Kevkhishvili and jumper
Shara Proctor look to defend their titles
and continue their outstanding perfo-
mance this season.
"We're going to do what we always
do," Holloway said. "We're going to take
care of the Gators."


By ANDREW OLSON
Alligator Writer

The No. 3 Gators women's tennis team
(24-2) has been named champions twice this
season and now the mission to win the third
and most important championship begins
Friday.
The Southeastern Conference's regular-
season and tournament champions' first
challenge on the path to the NCAA Cham-
pionship will come Friday at 2 p.m. against
Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference champion
South Carolina State (13-5)
South Carolina State is on a current four-
match winning streak that began with a road
upset over ECU 4-3 on April 12.
Florida's current 17-match winning streak
began in February with a shutout of in-state
rival FSU. Part of the streak can be attributed
to the Gators dominance at home, where they
are undefeated.
After finishing the regular season with a
three-game road trip and playing the SEC
tournament in Athens, Ga., the players are
excited to be back on their home court in
Gainesville.
"That's a huge advantage to have all the
Gainesville Gators fans right behind us,
cheering for us," No. 9 freshman Lauren Em-
bree said.
Embree, the recently-named SEC Player of
the Year, has excelled at home. Seven of Em-
bree's 16 wins at the No. 1 spot in singles this
season came at home after the rough three-
loss performance at the ITA Team Tourna-
ment in Charlottesville, Va.


Embree is not the only Gator with an im-
pressive win streak heading into Friday.
SEC Freshman of the Year Allie Will has
yet to be defeated in the dual-match season
in singles play. Will posts a 20-0 record at the
No. 2 position this spring.
If the Gators continue their dominance at
home and defeat South Carolina State, they
will face either Washington or Utah on Sat-
urday at 3 p.m. in the second round.
The No. 6 Gators men's tennis team (19-4)
will also be hosting South Carolina State (14-
10) in the first round on Saturday at noon.
Florida is looking to bounce back from a
4-0 loss in the SEC tournament champion-
ship to No. 2 Tennessee.
Despite falling just short of two goals for
this season - the SEC regular-
season and tournament cham-
pionships - UF men's coach
Andy Jackson has a posi-
Tennis tive outlook heading into the
NCAA Tournament.
"Hosting is something that was a goal
and it's hard-earned, so we're excited about
that," Jackson said.
If the men's squad defeats South Carolina
State, it may face a familiar foe. No. 31 Au-
burn is also in Gainesville to face Troy in the
first round.
UF won both meetings against the Tigers
this season. On March 12, Florida defeated
Auburn 5-2 in Gainesville. In the SEC tour-
nament, the Gators won the rematch with
Auburn 4-1 in the SEC tournament semifi-
nals in Lexington, Ky.

You Decide. Professor wins $30,000 Rea Award is given annually By ALEXANDER KLAUSN ER Alligator Contributing Writer UF professor Mary Robison turned her short stories into tall stacks of cash. Robison recently received the prestigious Rea Award for the Short Story along with $30,000. The award is given annually by a panel of three judges and is sponsored by the Dungannon Foundation. It goes to authors who have made a significant contribution to the short story as an art form, according to the award's website. Robison, who has focused primarily on novel writing as of late, did not expect to receive the award because she had not written a short story in some time. "I couldn't have been more surprised," Robison said. "I hadn't written a short story in a while. I thought it was a mistake." She was also surprised by the prize money. "I couldn't have been more surprised. I hadn't written a short story in a while. I thought it was a mistake." Mary Robison UF professor "There was some mention of getting my address to send me a check," she said. "I said 'Oh God, there's money involved?' They told me, 'Yes, in fact, there's $30,000."' Robison has been referred to as a minimalist author, though she is hesitant to label herself as such. "[Minimalist] sounds to me like you haven't worked very hard," she said. "It sounds like you're doing the minimum. It's more about selection and choosing exactly the bits of description you need in the story." Over the course of her career, Robison has published four shortstory collections: "Days," "An Amateur's Guide to the Night," "Believe Them," and "Tell Me: 30 Stories." Some of her short stories were originally published in The New Yorker, The Paris Review, Esquire, GQ and Harvard Magazine. Robison has also published four novels, including "Why Did I Ever" and the critically acclaimed "One D.O.A., One on the Way," which was featured on Oprah Winfrey's 2009 summer reading list. 10 e~j THURSDAY, MAY 13, 2010 Apartments fill vacant rooms 0 YEARLONG LEASES KEEP BUILDINGS OCCUPIED DURING SUMMER MONTHS.

Because most local apartments require that tenants sign one-year leases, which includes the summer semester, area apartment owners are not Around concerned about finding tenants for the Gainesville summer, said Andres Tinoco, a leasing and marketing manager for University Commons. Furthermore, despite a decreased enrollment at UF, the overall vacancy rate for area apartments is trending downward.

Student Body President Ashton Charles touted the qualifications of each of the 53 candidates, all of whom were eventually approved. A Q-and-A session, which sometimes resembled a debate, preceded the vote for each candidate. The Senate approved Zack Goldstein as the new chairman for Accent Speakers Bureau, but not without 15 minutes of discussion over the issue of access to VIP tickets for Accent-sponsored events.

By ALEX CHACHKEVITCH Alligator Writer UF President Bernie Machen and other UF officials dedicated the Biomedical Sciences Building Tuesday. The building's innovative design is intended to encourage scientists of different colleges to work in teams, according to a UF press release. The building's work spaces are mostly open and lack the confined offices that characterize most laboratories. The building's labs feature large windows that are supposed to make the environment more well-lit and comfortable. Aside from promoting shared space, the open design is also expected to encourage the sharing of ideas, according to a press release. The facility, which was completed in October after about three years of construction, will house research centers and programs such as the UF Diabetes Center of Excellence, the Center for Translational Research in Neurodegenerative Disease and the Rehabilitation Research Program. The $90.5-million, eight-story building is located on the northeast corner of Center Drive and Mowry Road. Courtesy of the UF Health Science Center College of Medicine Dean Michael L.

Brazen Careerist is based on a feed of top ideas, similar to Facebook's news feed, that employers peruse before hiring, said Janine Deegan, a communications coordinator for Brazen Careerist. The award is a $1,500 scholarship that Farrell said she will use to become certified in Six Sigma, a management tool designed to increase corporate efficiency. Farrell is an executive marketer for higher education companies, and she receives two to three six-figure-salary job offers a week, she said. Farrell, who graduated from UF in 2003 with degrees in psychology and education, attributes the job offers to social networking. In particular, she said her presence on LinkedIn, another professional social networking tool that focuses on sharing job experiences and online resumes, has been helpful. "Probably the best thing I did was that I got heavily involved in LinkedIn right after I graduated," said Farrell, Student who owns a home in Palm Beach and lives in DalLife las. "For anyone in college, LinkedIn has by far been the most helpful in networking and social media." Brazen Careerist is a good tool for people between the ages of 25 and 40, Farrell said. She won the award on Brazen Careerist because she used a number of different social media tools to connect with people on the website. "She was the most active person, using the most tools to connect with people," said Deegan. "She got a lot of people into the group. She used a blog, Twitter and other social media. She did a lot to get people buzzing." The award was created to encourage graduates of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars program to connect with each other and create professional relationships, said Deegan. "Brazen Careerist allows people to be more than a resume," Deegan said. "It lets employers hire them for their ideas more than work experience."

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, MAY 13, 2010 Editorial The Wrong Cards Tea Party is a few cards short of full deck ust when we thought the Tea Party movement could not get any more ridiculous, one company has started selling its own take on the Iraqi Most Wanted Playing Cards, except they feature politicians. The company, Shenandoah Valley Tea Party Patriots Inc., claims the politicians in the 54-card deck are the "most dangerous progressives in Washington who are up for re-election" and encourages local tea parties to buy the cards so they can sell them at rallies. The deck features eight Republicans and 46 Democrats, with John McCain as the ace of spades and Nancy Pelosi as the joker. The company suggests that people should mail their cards to the politicians with a message saying they will be calling their bluff on election day. Most of those letters will probably be met with little more than an eye roll before being promptly thrown in the garbage by congressional interns, but it would not be the Tea Party if they did not throw in a couple of cheap shots. We can't help but notice the prejudiced undercurrent. Barney Frank, a prominent and openly gay representative from Massachusetts, is portrayed as the deck's queen of hearts. It is this kind of immature behavior that makes the entire movement seem more like poorly veiled hate than legitimate politics. It has to stop. The political divide in America is hitting an alltime high, and it baffles us that this is considered acceptable. While the Tea Party claims to be grassroots with members from all political parties, all we ever see are people holding up racist signs and calling people names. Yelling Fire We thought plans for a fire assessment fee died years ago, but the Alachua County Commission is pulling out the Jaws of Life to try and make its recent version of this terrible idea a reality. Unlike property taxes, which are calculated based on the assessed value of a building, the proposed assessment is a "per-dwelling" fee -a catchall that would include apartments -calculated based on the size of a building and whether it's in an urban or rural area. Homeowners living in unincorporated Alachua County could end up paying more than $200 a year for the fee, regardless of the value of their homes. This would decrease taxes on high-value homes while increasing them for lower-value homes.For such a progressive county, it sounds like a regressive tax. The county says the as_ sessment would raise about $8 million every year, but it is unlikely that fire services would see a budget increase. When the city considered a $30-per-house fire assessment fee in 2008, it was clear it was just trying to free up general fund money for Gainesville Police Department. If we knew this money would ensure firefighters would get the best equipment and training then we might grin and bear it, but we don't think this is the case. We understand it costs money to put out fires, and the last thing we want to see is underfunded first responders. But this assessment sticks the bill with the wrong people, and we want to see it go up in smoke. a l l e independent fo rida Raohael Pino EDITOR Paul Runnestrand Stefania Ferro MANAGING EDITORS Drew Wilson OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must 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, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105 W University A or send them to PO Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

Zo BRARY 200 3 2605 _S Column Kagan's experience is not a problem s someone who is fascinated by the U.S. Supreme Court, I've been consuming every bit of information about President Obama's recent nominee, Elena Kagan. Unfortunately, it seems as if the Alligator's Editorial Board has not consumed even half of that information. Tuesday's editorial, "Poor Judgment," displayed poor judgment questioning Kagan's nomination on unsubstantial grounds and misrepresented what little facts that were cited. The main complaint seemed to be that Kagan "has no experience as a judge, federal or otherwise." Perhaps it would have been helpful to mention that former President Bill Clinton nominated Kagan for a federal judgeship in 1999. Her nomination was stalled by a Republican-controlled Congress that did what every partisan Congress does when a president of the opposite party is nearing the end of his term: delay voting on a court nomination in the hopes that its party will win the White House and then nominate someone with its ideological views. Kagan's nomination was not rejected. It died out because a president's unconfirmed nominations expire at the end of the presidential term. Because the next president was a Republican, presumably Kagan would not be nominated for another federal judgeship, so she pursued another legal career path. Ultimately, what the writer failed to understand is that Kagan's lack of experience as a judge is not the end of the world. In addition to former Chief Justice Earl Warren, more than one-third of all Supreme Court justices, including the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist, did not serve as judges before joining our nation's highest court. In fact, Kagan's experience as solicitor general is actually more applicable to serving as a Supreme Court justice than most judgeships. The solicitor general represents the U.S. government in up to two-thirds of all Supreme Court cases each year. As such, the solicitor general has more experience with the Supreme Court and insight into its decision-making process than most judges at any level, aside from the Supreme Court justices themselves. In fact, the solicitor general is often referred to as Deborah Swerdlow "the 10th justice." True, Kaganhas Speaking Out served in this position for a little more than a year, but in that year she has held her own in oral arguments against the court's fiercest justice, Antonin Scalia-a feat that should not be minimized. The Editorial Board's characterization of former President Eisenhower's comment about the late Chief Justice Earl Warren was also irresponsible and misleading. Eisenhower said appointing Warren was the "biggest damned-fool mistake I ever made" not because Warren simply shifted the court's politics but because Warren shifted the court in a liberal direction that Eisenhower-a Republican-disagreed with. We would expect a Democratic president to feel the same way had he or she selected Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justice Samuel Alito, given that these two conservatives have facilitated a massive rightward shift in their four years on the court. Furthermore, the writer's concern that "[tihe last thing the court needs is an unknown quantity shaking up the system" is quite an exaggeration. That line makes Kagan sound like a radical extremist yearning to burst free from her current mold. You know, the mold she's been in for the past 50 years, just waiting until she has that chance to be nominated to the Supreme Court and then she can do whatever her radical heart desires. It's fine to raise legitimate questions about how many cases Kagan might have to recuse herself from given her position as solicitor general, or to ponder the implications of having an Ivy League-educated court when most Americans don't attend Ivy League schools. But the questions this editorial raised about Kagan's experience were unfounded and presented without context. Because most student readers probably use the Alligator as their only news source, the editorial did the university community a significant disservice.

Letter to the Editor Student criticizes Southwest Recreation Center security I wanted to let the Alligator know how Southwest Recreation Center is keeping students' personal belongings safe. I just had my wallet stolen out of my locker this afternoon. You're probably wondering how someone gets a wallet stolen out of a lockedlocker. Well, the gym is providing members with locks and keys that have duplicates. In the past semester, I have, on accident, opened at least two locks that did not belong to me with my own issued key. I quickly realized these weren't my belongings and locked it back up. I remembered thinking to myself that this could become a problem if the gym did not fix the issue. Unfortunately, it seems that I am the first victim. I came back after working out and found that my wallet, which was inside the locker on top of my backpack, was now missing, although my cell phone and keys were spared. I am 100 percent positive my wallet was in the locker because I had just put my Gator 1 Card back in it after renting the lock. I asked to speak to a supervisor, and I was told, "Thefts happen, and it is not Southwest's responsibility." After filing a police report, I was told the same thing. This drives me crazy because it completely defeats the purpose of providing locks to safeguard your belongings if other students have access to the lock. I am now missing my driver's license, two credit cards, my Social Security card, AAA card, health insurance card and $37, all because of Southwest's negligence. You can rest assured that I will be bringing my own lock from now on, however I thought the rest of UF should know about the crummy locker system. Nathan Kelley UFgraduate student THURSDAY, MAY 13, 2010 0 ALLIGATOR, 7 Guest column Government spends efficiently ebate is important. Especially when it comes to something as vital as health care. But when it comes to debate, as one senator put it, "You are entitled to your own opinion, but you are not entitled to your own facts." Bryan Griffin's Tuesday column was long on opinion, but misleading on facts. First of all, Democrats agree with Griffin's focus on efficiency. It's humorous, though, that this point came after an entire column whining about the role of government. It may be Griffin's opinion that government isn't efficient, but it's a fact that the government's track record on efficiency is excellent. In fact, government is the most efficient disburser of benefits in the United States. Medicare and Social Security overhead costs are a minuscule portion of their total cost. Private insurance overhead is three times as much. Implying that private charity will replace the billions of dollars in support that government provides for children, the elderly and the disadvantaged is ridiculous. To then go on to say that these programs are inefficient is equally ridiculous. They may not turn a profit for a corporation, but that's not their intention. They provide the assistance they were created to provide. Shoehorned into this column about "efficiency" is the complaint that healthy people are Nicholas mandated by the recent Mildebrath health care legislation to buy insurance. This entire Speaking Out anti-mandate argument highlights a split that I've noticed recently between the Democratic and Republican parties: Democrats like the mandate because it provides help for the people who need it, because it's constitutional and because it works. Republicans don't like it because it was proposed by Democrats and because they need to moan about the "unconstitutional" bill from now until November. Ask Bill McCollum, Republican candidate for governor right here in Florida, how his lawsuit to overturn health care reform is going in courts (hint: not far). Democrats understand that we're not being forced to choose between private charity and government assistance. There is a place for both, and both are essential to a healthy society. But it's simply untrue to say that government is inefficient, and it's simply untrue to say that Democrats support government programs to help people just for kicks. When we see a problem, we set out to solve it, and sometimes that solution includes the government. Nicholas Mildebrath is the editorial chair of College Democrats. Guest column Congress should be more concerned for public's interest ris week, the director of the Congressional Budget Office announced the health care legislation is going to cost about $115 billion more than expected. This brings the total in health care spending up to about $1 trillion -so far. I have a pet skunk. His name is Odysseus. He is 4 years old and was rescued from an exotic pet store. He is a creature of little action who knows what is necessary and what isn't. He would make the perfect modern legislator. The added $115 billion to the already hefty price tag for health care reform should come as no shock to anyone. I bet living under our government would be far less expensive if we replaced many of the spend-happy politicians in WashBryan Griffin ington with pet skunks. Just imagine: Spea kingOut It wouldn't cost America trillions of dollars to satisfy politicians' egos with "legacy, landmark legislature," but only about $40 a month in vegetables and the occasional peanut. Unfortunately, politicians aren't so easily satisfied. Instead, the modern politician desires giant spending projects that only glorify their own time with little concern for cost or practicality. They should be looking out for America's best interests-including financial interests. We are now witnessing in Europe what happens when governments run out of other people's money to borrow and spend. Our federal deficit last month was four times higher than it was in April 2009. We are headed in the wrong direction. We are different from Greece in degree, but not in kind. Congress needs to act more concerned with the interest of the public than with its own agenda. Seeing as how our government has no interest in implementing free-market strategies to accomplish goals, I see little immediate hope for a reduction in the bill Congress is racking up. So: Odysseus for Congress in 2012! While many modern legislators see "protecting our financial interests" as a gray area, with Odysseus, it's all black and white.

Alan Yanuck, representative for the Keys Residential Complex, pressed Goldstein about the issue of fairness. "Many of the people who voted for me have said that these tickets are not a good idea," Yanuck said. "No students are more important than any other students." Safety was Goldstein's primary concern. "Knowing who's sitting closest to the speaker helps us," he said. Although security has always been a concern, U.S. Sen. John Kerry's 2007 appearance at UF, during which a UF student was Tasered by university police, underscored event organizers' need to know who is sitting close to the speakers, Goldstein said. "Many of the people who voted for me have said that these tickets are not a good idea. No students are more important than any other students." Alan Yanuck Student Alliance senator Kyle Calhoun, newly appointed Student Government Productions chair, proposed the creation of an Accent and SGP fan club that would hold a lottery for members to win the VIP tickets. Calhoun said he would meet with lottery winners before the event to screen potentially dangerous guests. In addition to approving Cabinet appointments and arguing about VIP tickets, the Senate passed a resolution honoring Thomas Hollister, a UF electrical engineering student who was recently killed when a tree fell on his car while driving in the Panhandle. Marketing strategies target summer transfer students, freshmen APARTMENTS, from page 1 62nd Blvd., does not have a problem with vacancies. Until December, it was at 100 percent capacity, said Rob Wright, a property manager at the apartment complex. Wright added that since December, the Woodlands has only had a few empty units remain. "We've had a handful of vacancies that have come to us, so it's not a problem," Wright said. "We go on campus and promote the apartments. We know that a lot of transfers come in Summer A." University Commons, located at 2601 SW Archer Road, is also successfully getting people to sign leases. Some apartment managers are using financial incentives to attract tenants. University Commons, for instance, takes 10 percent off the lease price if the renter signs within 24 hours of coming in and pays by the first of every month, Tinoco said. Other apartments offer special rates specifically for the summer months. "A lot of students will take into that," Tinoco said. "It entices a lot of students." University Commons has filled most of its units because students mostly sign one-year leases, Tinoco said. "We have a lot of peoAround ple looking for sublets," Gainesville he said. "They're trying to find people to fill their spots. The units are mostly filled up from the previous year of leasing." The Woodlands of Gainesville attempts to attract incoming freshmen by passing out promotional material during orientations, Wright said. University Commons preemptively recruits new tenants by visiting local high schools that have good relationships with the university, Tinoco said. "Nowadays, the savvier people are going to the Internet. People aren't going to pick up a newspaper the way they used to," Tinoco said. "People Google 'Gainesville apartment.' We are going to the Internet to get those people."

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 13, 2010 Sexual health care on By BRITT PERKINS avenue writer Until ObamaCare officially kicks in, basic body maintenance can be expensive but also a major necessity. Specifically, I'm talkingabout birth control and getting tested. Not necessarily the most fun. Even less so if you're considering the economical route: the local health department. But I'm here to tell you, it's not as bad as it sounds. Here are some tips: 1. Have at least three hours to burn. Speeding up government employees isn't goingto happen. 2. Bring a photo ID and a pay stub or awards letter. Rutler Plaza Newberty Square 335-1232 332-3937 The latter is for determining your cost. You will often end up paying little or nothing, even for birth control pills and condoms. 3. Breathe. This can be an easy thing to forget when getting your blood taken. 4. Ask questions. These people have seen it all, and nothing you will say or ask is going to impress or shock them. Just get the information you need from a medical professional so you don't have to wonder if something your roommate, friend or Flavor Flav said is accurate. 5. Relax Calm down, especially during the swab, but also remember to do this during the entire visit. Though easier said than done, realize that everyone in college and every adult, for that matthe cheap ter, deals with sexual health. You are not alone. It's definitely not a sexy process but vital in ensuring sexy things continue to happen for you. Also, things like abstinence, monogamy and safe sex will reduce the stress of these visits. Just saying. Multiple risky encounters are obviously going to give you more to think about in the waiting room. 6. Getting your results You will get the HIV test results before you leave. Keep in mind that exposures within three months may not show up on the test. It takes one to two weeks to get the lab results for the other tests, so keep phone number they give you. For more information call the Alachua County Health Department at 352-334-7900.

STRIPES, BIG ACCESSORIES ARE MUST-HAVES FOR SUMMER. By ALISHA KINMAN avenue writer While fashion boutiques decorate their storefronts to attract summer shoppers, the time for students to start cleaning out their closets is now. Give away your daisy dukes, crocks and low-rise jeans with the rest of those spring things you no longer need. This summer is all about being comfortable and choosing Macy s and NoruSLromS Have given SHOppers a sneak peek of what to expectfor summer trends. Floral patterns on mid-thigh skirts and sundresses made the cut. Other items to watch include denim and striped apparel. "Stripes will be very in this season. I've seen it on cotton and silk shirts and on accessories too," said Christy Morgan, the owner of Dahlia in Thornebrook Village. In addition, oversized canvas tote bags paired with khaki mid-thigh shorts and a white cotton button-down top can make for a classic all-American look. Rompers, white jeans, summer dresses and mini-layered skirts are popular, said Oaks Mail and public reiaLons SLUdent al ur. Harper's Bazaar, an elite fashion magazine, recommends metallic blazers, pastels and army green jackets as must-haves. "5tripes will be very in this season. I've seen it on eotton and ilk shirts and on accessories too." CHRISTY MORGAN owner of Dahlia Also, Bazaar recommends investing in neutral colored gladiator sandals to match earth-toned outfits. Remember, an outfit can appear drab withLuckily, tHe SKinny bellt, CHunky beaded necklaces and leather-strap watches will become popular commodities this season. But you do not have to shop at high-end clothing department stores to recreate a look out of Vogue. For instance, long, chunky necklaces can be found at Target for $16 compared to necklaces at Bloomingdales that range from $40 to $100. Keeping up with the latest trends might come with a price tag, but the investment of staying on top of the latest trends while feeling better about the way you dress is not worth forgoing.

12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 13, 2010 How to survive, enjoy the summer s slowdown By DAVE JOHNSON avenue writer "You're staying in Gainesville for the summer?" This isthe lastthingmyfriend said to me after I had finished helping him move out of his apartment a couple of weeks ago. He didn't bother to wait around for an answer or an explanation. He simply peeled out of the dusty parking lot, leaving me coated in a fine layer of dirt and shame, alone in a city rendered desolate in the summer months. It can't all be bad, right? I'm pretty sure there are perks to staying here this summer and taking classes, but since I've never done anything like this before, I'm left to face this long, deserted stretch of a semester alone. To maintain the sanity I'm risking by stayingthe summer in Gainesville, I need to find the silver lining of this sad, lonely cloud. What comes to my mind first might be the greatest benefit to living in Gainesville during the summer: significantly decreased zombie presence. Dave Johnson Columnist Significantly decreased human presence, too, for that matter. Bottom line: I can actually wear my socks instead of usingthem as armaments, and I don't have to suffer the indignity of carrying a Nerf gun with me to class. Also, I getto continue livingawayfrom my parents, which is always better than the opposite. Oh, you want curfews and family dinners? I'll be right here, playing Playstation 3 in my underwear and growing my beard in peace, suckers. Dear readers (all eight of you), this long summer ahead of us may seem daunting. However, keep in mind that there are perfectly good reasons to be here over the summer. You just need to find your own to not go crazy. Like being able to find parking on campus. Oh, and furthering your education. ILK c6 y0f o AmericarD J. Doobies The Home of Wraps and Stacks. The only way to describe the Stack is that it is outrageously delicious!

The company's new changes to profiles' information section strip users of any sort of individuality and beg the question: Really?! A few years ago, Facebook had some semblance of credibility. Users had to prove their affiliation to a college or company network, and our parents hadn't heard of the site yet. Now the social networking site feels more like a family reunion you're surrounded by people you don't really want to talk to, but somehow they seem to know way too much about your life. In the past few weeks, I have noticed several friends threatening to leave Facebook for good because of privacy concerns and general disenchantment with the site. The disillusioned may gain followers and notoriety if Facebook doesn't clean up its act soon (which is highly unlikely). Jamaican Caribbean Queen Offering jerk chicken, curry goat & oxtail.

Call ahead seating. 2410 NW 43rd Street Gainesville So, should we stay or should we go? PROS: + There's really no alternative. Well, there's MySpace and Twitter, but those are pretty much just punishments. With no other competitive alternative, leaving Facebook may mean virtual social isolation. Your friends will keep writing on each other's walls and uploading the party pics that you will never be tagged in. And how will you stalk people? + It's convenient. If you are under 30, a Facebook account has almost become a prerequisite to living. It's assumed that you have one. Being a member of the site grants you access via a singular medium to most of the people that you need to communicate with. It's a one-stop shop and a lot easier than calling or sending e-mails. + It achieves its purpose: It connects. There is no doubt about Facebook's connective nature. With the addition of the News Feed feature, users might even feel a little too connected to each other.

Self-explanatory. CONS: + The new changes. The changes to profile's information section make it impossible to have unique interests. Now the only information users are allowed to include in their profiles must be chosen from a predetermined On the list of information that can be linked to others' profiles. Not only is this annoying, it's a thinly veiled strategy to make even more money by targeting ads to our profiles. + It's an extreme waste of time. It can be fun, but it's a time-waster. Anyone who has walked through the computer labs on campus or has been to Library West should know this. When we have projects to do, Facebook seems even more appealing than ever. + Family invasion.

If you do succumb to the guilt trips and add your parents and extended family, Facebook's tricky privacy settings keep you wondering, "Can I be sure that they can't see my pictures/ wall/anything personal about me?" Which brings me to. + Is Facebook even capable of keeping your information private? In a May 5 article, The New York Times reported that a glitch allowed Facebook users to read their friends' private chat conversations and see their "'online friends' pending social requests." This may not seem that scary or surprising, but it is another reason why people are getting freaked out by the (lack of) control that Facebook has over their personal information. Lesson: If you don't want absolutely everyone in the world to have access to it, don't put it on Facebook. The choice to delete or not to delete (if you can even figure out how to do it) is yours. But I'm predicting that until someone creates something better and less controlling, Facebook is here to stay and so will be the majority of its current users.

Sports THURSDAY, MAY 13, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF BASEBALL Toledo makes return in 7-3 victory By TYLER JETT Alligator Staff Writer tjett@alligator org STommy Toledo has been thinking about his last outing for 59 days. But in the sophomore's first appearance since March 14, when he suffered a fractured nose and several broken bones in his face after being hit by a line drive against Charleston Southern, he blocked out the past. "I was just surprised I kept throwing strikes in the warm-up pitches. I was shaking up there, to be honest, but that was a cool feeling." Tommy Toledo UF pitcher Toledo received a standing ovation from the 3,147 Gators fans in attendance when he entered in the seventh inning of No. 4 Florida's (34-12, 17-7 Southeastern Conference) 7-3 win against FAU (31-19) in McKethan Stadium Wednesday. "That was unbelievable," Toledo said. "I wasn't expecting that at all. I was just surprised I kept throwing strikes in the warm-up pitches. I was shaking up there, to be honest, but that was a cool feeling." Catcher Mike Zunino said watching Toledo walk back on the mound was special. "I got chills out there when he went out there and got that standing ovation," he said. Zunino greeted Toledo at the mound before he started warming up. The two slapped gloves and Zunino told him SEE BASEBALL, PAGE 21 Brooks nears UF games-played record 0 SEC TOURNEY TO BEGIN TODAY. By GREG LUCA Alligator Writer For 188 consecutive games, senior Corrie Brooks has shown up at the ballpark on game day and done whatever her coaches and teammates asked of her. Whether the Gators needed a big-time play at third base, a clutch game-tying or game-winning hit in the bottom of the seventh, or even an extra outfielder or reserve pitcher, Brooks has always been there. And when the No. 6 Gators (42-7, 20-4 Southeastern Conference) take the field to play Auburn (30-23, 11-17 SEC) today at 2:30 p.m. in the first round of the SEC tournament, Brooks will once again be there for the 262nd time in her UF career, putting her only 11 behind Ashley Boone for the all-time Florida games-played record. "I think it is significant because that just says something about how great of a team we are," Brooks said. "I've gotten the opportunity to play that many games because our teams have been good enough to make it that far, and it definitely says a lot for me to be a starter on that good of a team." It's been 824 days since Brooks last missed a start on Feb. 9, 2008 against Memphisthe fourth game of her sophomore season. Perhaps not coincidentally that was about the same time Brooks started bringing her lucky gator head to the games, a tradition she's kept alive ever since. "One of the times I Brooks was working at the gator farm they had a few alligators that people had brought in, and they were just throwing away the heads and feet and everything, and I said 'Well I'd like to have one of these,"' Brooks said. "So I took it to the taxidermist and got it done and since then I've just brought it on every road trip and everything." And while not many people usually get to experience alligators that up-close and personal, for the residents of the small town of Christmas, that closeness with nature is just the way of life. The 3.6 square-mile town that's last recorded population was 1,369 is what has made Brooks into the person she is today a girl who says her main hobbies are hunting, fishing and riding four-wheelers and horses. "That's pretty much just from living out in the country and having really nothing else to do," Brooks said. "We have a pond with catfish in our back yard and growing up with a family that was raised outdoors and having them pass that stuff along to me led to me taking it up and that's what I like to do." It is that upbringing that has led Brooks to pursue a degree in Animal Science, SEE SOFTBALL, PAGE 21 SOFTBALL NEWS U Eight Gators softball players were named to AllSoutheastern Conference teams. Francesca Enea, Stephanie Brombacher and Megan Bush earned first-team honors. Tyus' plan to stay should shock none By ANTHONY CHIANG achiang@alligatororg or some reason we were all surprised. Most of us assumed the 6-foot-8 power forward who couldn't buy playing time late in games would opt to enter the NBA Draft and would forgo his senior season. But Alex Tyus never really had much of a choice but to return to school, although his father, Thomas Tyus, gave off another impres"I don't think he has "0 Ip anything to gain by returning to the UniverAnthony Chiang sity of FlorChiang Reaction ida basketachiang@alligatororg ball wise," Thomas said to the Orlando Sentinel. "I just feel he just has not developed his full potential. .He can go back and get his degree any time." If Tyus hasn't fulfilled his potential in the 70 games he has started during the last two seasons, I don't know if he ever will max out his talent. On a squad that narrowly made the NCAA Tournament last season, Tyus averaged 11.8 points per game (fourth highest on the team), while committing three and a half turnovers for every one assist he dished out. Those aren't exactly the numbers team executives like Pat Riley are looking for in a first-round draft pick. With that being said, we should commend the rising senior's decision because it was the right one. When he entered his name into the crapshoot that is the NBA Draft, Tyus said he would not SEE ANTHONY, PAGE 21 UF FOOTBALL EUF cornerback Adrian Bushell, a redshirt sophomore, has decided to transfer from the Gators.

Sophomore pitcher throws one scoreless frame BASE, from page 20 to have fun. The pitcher received a similar warm greeting when he walked off the mound after pitching a scoreless, yet far from flawless, frame. Coach Kevin O'Sullivan admitted he grew emotional watching Toledo pitch. "As a coach, you get a little choked up," he said. "I mean, you know how tough it was to get back up here. To be honest with you, if it was up to him, he probably would have been ready to go (last weekend) at Alabama. He was chomping at the bit." O'Sullivan said he wanted to hold the pitcher until he could throw in a home game. The coach does not know whether Toledo will stay in the bullpen or become a starter like he was before the metal plates were put in his face. Toledo needs to rebuild his arm strength as if he was back in spring training, O'Sullivan said. On Toledo's first pitch, Owls third baseman Nick Burkhalter hit a hard line drive just left of the pitcher for a single. Nathan Pittman hit Toledo's third pitch I o'uVa just as hard to the right for a line out. Toledo said he did not think about his injury on the mound, though. FAU third baseman Joey Burkhalter followed his teammate with a single to right-center. After throwing just his fourth pitch in almost two months, Toledo received a visit from Zunino. The catcher told him to keep the ball down and called for a breaking ball. Toledo recovered, throwing a strike. Ammigma Senior Corrie Brooks is 11 games away from breaking the UF games-played record. Sh missed a game in 824 days. Ashley Boone, who played from 1998 to 2001, holds the "I know he's thrown about three or four bullpens, but to be as pinpoint as he was, that was the Tommy Toledo of old right there," Zunino said. Zunino helped his hurler in the next at-bat, picking Burkhalter off at first. Toledo then struck out Anthony Mesa with a slider to end the inning, igniting the crowd in the process. "That was a pretty cool feeling," Toledo said. "I'm excited to get it over with, but it was probably one of the best feelings I've ever had here at Florida." His teammates greeted him with a similar reception. "He battled real hard to get back into it," said senior Matt den Dekker, who hit one of UF's three home runs Wednesday. "He comes out and works hard every day. He's such a great kid, on and off the field. To see him back out here like that, it was awesome. It was a great moment for us." Brooks to graduate in August SOFT, from page 20 which she hopes to parlay into a job either with the USDA or as an agriculture teacher. And although the senior will be leaving the softball program after this season and leaving UF when she graduates in August, both her coaches and teammates Softball will not be quick to forget her. "I just want them to remember me as somebody who worked hard, did what she was told, never talked back, and never questioned anything anybody was doing," Brooks r File Photo said. "Just as somebody that e hasn't they could talk to and know I record. wouldn't say anything out of rcr. line." THURSDAY, MAY 13, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 21 ANTHONY, from page 20 leave UF unless he was guaranteed to be a first-round selection. He stuck by that sentiment. ESPN's Chad Ford and Andy Katz both believed it was very possible he would go undrafted and advised Tyus to return to school when making their NBA Draft projections. With only 60 players drafted into the NBA each year, Ford had him as the 116thbest player on his board. Taking all that into account, nobody should have been caught off guard to learn of his return last weekend. Tyus did the same thing he did last season when he threatened to transfer. But this year's decision will benefit the team more than it does Tyus. The Gators will now bring back all five starters from last season and are poised to be a top-three team in the Southeastern Conference next year. CBS's Gary Parrish ranked Florida as the 10th best team in his preseason top 25, which was released yesterday. On the other hand, Tyus' decision to return won't necessarily help his draft stock much. He will be spending most of his time at power forward next season, despite contending that his natural position is at the three. But Chandler Parsons has already won that role after a stellar junior year. And it's not like Tyus won't have competition at his position. For some reason coach Billy Donovan didn't trust him at the end of games as he opted to use Dan Werner in crucial situations most of the time instead. This year Tyus will have to compete with UF's new five-star recruit Patric Young for time in the front court. Still, coming back was his only option and the team will be better for it. Tyus on the other hand, I'm not so sure about.

THURSDAY, MAY 13, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 23 UF tennis teams to begin NCAA Championships Lauren Embree and the women's tennis team have won 17 straight matches and are undefeated at home this season. The team last lost Feb. 14 against UCLA. UF TRACK & FIELD Gators ready for SECs By JESSE SIMONTON Alligator Writer The UF track and field teams head to Knoxville, Tenn., today to compete in the Southeastern Conference Outdoor Championships on a mission: bring home championships. Second isn't an option. "We felt like we let ourselves down last year," UF coach Mike Holloway said. "We were second in everything, with the exception of the regional meet. In every one of those instances, we could have won the meet. This year, we are making sure we're at our absolute best." The men's team finished the first part of its mission at the 2010 NCAA Indoor Championship -now, it looks to do the same in Volunteer country. Although the men's team finished second last year, the women's team is looking to defend its outdoor title from a season ago. The men's team is seeking its first SEC Outdoor Championship since the 1987 season, while the women's team is seeking the prestigious "Triple Crown" after winning the 2009 SEC Cross Country Championship and the 2010 SEC Indoor Championship. The "Triple Crown" has only been accomplished once in school history when the women's team did it in the 1996-97 season. The Gators head to Knoxville as two top-10 programs, ready to face the stiffest competition in the country. The men's team is ranked third nationally, the highest-rated SEC men's team. The women's team is also in the top 10, coming in 10th nationally, second in the conference behind No. 2 LSU. The SEC boasts some of the most elite track and field programs in the country, with eight men's teams ranked in the top 25. The SEC has four programs represented in the women's top 25. The Gators come to the Outdoor Championships looking to defend nine individx -ii I Holloway ual titles from last year's outdoor meet. All-American sprinters Jeff Demps, Tony McQuay and Calvin Smith look to lead the fastest team in America to more records. The Gator men's team enters the meet with the top-ranked 400-meter runner in the world, Smith, and the topranked 4x400 meter relay team in the world. Smith, the top-ranked 400 meter runner in the world, leads the top 4x100 meter relay team in the nation. Other Gator All-Americans including thrower Mariam Kevkhishvili and jumper Shara Proctor look to defend their titles and continue their outstanding perfomance this season. "We're going to do what we always do," Holloway said. "We're going to take care of the Gators." By ANDREW OLSON Alligator Writer The No. 3 Gators women's tennis team (24-2) has been named champions twice this season and now the mission to win the third and most important championship begins Friday. The Southeastern Conference's regularseason and tournament champions' first challenge on the path to the NCAA Championship will come Friday at 2 p.m. against Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference champion South Carolina State (13-5) South Carolina State is on a current fourmatch winning streak that began with a road upset over ECU 4-3 on April 12. Florida's current 17-match winning streak began in February with a shutout of in-state rival FSU. Part of the streak can be attributed to the Gators dominance at home, where they are undefeated. After finishing the regular season with a three-game road trip and playing the SEC tournament in Athens, Ga., the players are excited to be back on their home court in Gainesville. "That's a huge advantage to have all the Gainesville Gators fans right behind us, cheering for us," No. 9 freshman Lauren Embree said. Embree, the recently-named SEC Player of the Year, has excelled at home. Seven of Embree's 16 wins at the No. 1 spot in singles this season came at home after the rough threeloss performance at the ITA Team Tournament in Charlottesville, Va. ~b% .I(1Q' I ~)~)e~ .1' % Embree is not the only Gator with an impressive win streak heading into Friday. SEC Freshman of the Year Allie Will has yet to be defeated in the dual-match season in singles play. Will posts a 20-0 record at the No. 2 position this spring. If the Gators continue their dominance at home and defeat South Carolina State, they will face either Washington or Utah on Saturday at 3 p.m. in the second round. The No. 6 Gators men's tennis team (19-4) will also be hosting South Carolina State (1410) in the first round on Saturday at noon. Florida is looking to bounce back from a 4-0 loss in the SEC tournament championship to No. 2 Tennessee. Despite falling just short of two goals for this season -the SEC regularseason and tournament championships -UF men's coach .Andy Jackson has a posiTennis tive outlook heading into the NCAA Tournament. "Hosting is something that was a goal and it's hard-earned, so we're excited about that," Jackson said. If the men's squad defeats South Carolina State, it may face a familiar foe. No. 31 Auburn is also in Gainesville to face Troy in the first round. UF won both meetings against the Tigers this season. On March 12, Florida defeated Auburn 5-2 in Gainesville. In the SEC tournament, the Gators won the rematch with Auburn 4-1 in the SEC tournament semifinals in Lexington, Ky.
