Craig Lowe sworn in as Gainesville mayor
S LOWE SAID HE VIEWS HIS JOB AS A CHALLENGE
" " AND OPPORTUNITY.

By ANDREW PANTAZI
Alligator Contributing Writer
Less than a week into his term, Mayor Craig Lowe said he
is expecting some of the toughest budget decisions in decades.
Nevertheless, he still has high hopes for Gainesville by plan-
ning to improve the economic, environmental and neighbor-
hood development.
A Lowe's first goal is to prepare for the upcoming budget dis-
cussions, which he is doing by evaluating programs' costs and
benefits, he said.
"You do get to make a difference in the community
that you love."

Former Gator dies at 21


By DANIELLA DORCELUS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Lamar Abel, a former walk-on defensive
lineman for the Gators, died Saturday after
an apparent seizure.
After participating in a roadside cleanup
with his fraternity brothers at Southwest
62nd Boulevard on Saturday afternoon,
the 21-year-old reported feeling chest pains
around 7 p.m.
He suffered a seizure at his home in
Campus Lodge Apartments, according to
Michael Bowie, an adviser to Abel's frater-
nity, Omega Psi Phi.
Bowie said one of Abel's fraternity
brothers called the paramedics and tried to
resuscitate him before help arrived. He was
taken to Shands Hospital where he was
pronounced dead shortly after midnight.


Bowie remembered Abel as a funny per-
son who truly cared about people.
"He was more than just a student to
me," Bowie said. "He was a friend."
When friends learned of Abel's death,
they arrived at Campus
Lodge Apartments to
hold a prayer vigil in the
parking lot, according to
Kimone Codner, a close
friend to Abel through
the National Panhellenic
Council.
"He touched a lot of
people while here," Codner said.
Codner's sorority, Alpha Kappa Al-
pha, named him Mr. Congeniality during
a men's appreciation event. Abel's sense of

He also wants to partner with the Alachua County School
Board to "see if we can work to improve student achievement
in the school system."
While Lowe said he can't please everybody, especially with
tough problems, there are benefits to being mayor, too.
"You do get to make a difference in the community that
you love," he said.
Lowe said he views his job as "a challenge and an opportu-
nity to serve the community," and as a way to practice what
he learned from being a city commissioner.
"I can't imagine what it would be like assuming the office
of mayor without serving as commissioner," he said.


State Attorney makes


judgment on shooting


By KATHERINE BEIN
Alligator Writer

State Attorney Bill Cervone released
a partial judgment Friday stating the
University Police officers who shot a
Ghanaian graduate student in his on-
campus apartment will not face any il-
legal action.
Cervone based his judgment on the
completed Florida Department of Law
Enforcement internal investigation of
the incident.


The judgment gives UF the ability to
complete its own internal affairs inves-
tigation, which is being independently
reviewed by Margolis Healy & Associ-

News statement released Friday
by university spokes-
woman Janine Sikes.

Auction, concert


benefit the arts

* THE MUSICAL CHAIRS PROJECT RAISED ABOUT
$2,500 FOR LOCAL SCHOOLS.

By NICOLE SALZMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

About 200 people bought hand-painted chairs and donated
money to hear live music in support of local arts programs Sat-
urday night in downtown Gainesville.
The Musical Chairs Project raised about $2,500 for the
Friends of Alachua County Public Schools Elementary Arts
Programs Fund, which is coordinated by two retired Alachua
County teachers. The event consisted of an auction followed by
a concert.
Fourteen revamped chairs were sold during the auction,
which drew a crowd of about 100.
UF's College of Fine Arts was about to discard the old chairs,
but Katie Levy, UF graphic design alumna and co-organizer of
the event, asked local artists to paint them for the auction in-
stead. Levy used Facebook to contact bands and arranged for
the venue space.
"It was a lot of work but very rewarding," said Levy, adding
that she's been involved in the Alachua County public school
arts programs since she started school.
About 100 more people came out to hear bands Levek and
Umoja Orchestra and singer Ricky Kendall, band
Local member of Paxico Via Mexico.
News Anna Walters, a UF sophomore, said she came
to see Levek after enjoying the band's music earli-
er in the week at Flaco's Cuban Bakery. She didn't
know it was a benefit concert but said that supporting the fund
was an added bonus.
Sue Johnson, a retired art teacher who co-formed the fund,
said she was glad to see different generations come to the con-
cert and donate.
"With all that goes on in the world, it's pretty cool to be con-
nected through the arts," Johnson said.
Gail and Jim Moss, who purchased a mosaic-decorated chair
for $300, attended the concert after to continue to show their
support of the arts.
"These young people are doing amazing things," Gail Moss
said. "I have to support that."
The remaining 13 chairs sold for between $50 and $300 each.
Johnson started the fund after the school board was forced to
cut the music and arts curriculum in half in 2008 because of
budget cuts. The fund, which is also coordinated by retired mu-
sic teacher Cheryl Poe, has contributed $1,000 to each art and
music program in 25 elementary schools in Alachua County,
totaling $50,000.
Johnson said their goal is to start a $100,000 endowment to
secure the future of the elementary arts and music programs.
"We want to see the program grow and keep a high level of
awareness in the community," she said. "The arts open you up
to so many different things, and it's connecting all of us."

$580 million budgeted for Shands


By MICHAELA TRIMBLE
Alligator Contributing Writer

The UF Health Science Center
and Shands HealthCare announced
a $580 million, five-year-plan on
Thursday.
The plan will be primarily fund-
ed through philanthropy, grant in-
come and UF support, according to
a press release.
After a nine-month planning


process by a 25-member cabinet
of university and
hospital leaders,
the plan, known as
"Forward Togeth-
er," was formed to
increase research
potential for the
Guzick university.
"[W]e want to
become a national model for edu-
cation in the health science profes-


sion," David S. Guzick, head of UF
& Shands health system, wrote in
the release.
Future plans include the creation
of an electronic medical record sys-
tem, the building of a Shands Hospi-
tal for Children and Women and the
construction of primary care offices
throughout the area.
"This is a significant investment,"
Guzick said. "But it will have signif-
icant impact."

Humans vs. Zombies resurrects at apartment complex


* THE GAME LASTED TWO-
AND-A-HALF HOURS.

By ANDREW PANTAZI
Alligator Contributing Writer
The zombie epidemic has in-
fected a Gainesville apartment
complex.
The District apartments on
Southwest 62nd Boulevard was


home to a Humans vs. Zombies
game Saturday night. About 30
people participated in the game
that resembled an elaborate version
of tag.
Mario Bartee, a fourth-year
nursing student and community
ambassador for The District, said
he organized the Humans vs. Zom-
bies game to keep residents active
and social.
"I don't have enough time to re-


ally interact with it at school," Bar-
tee said. "I figured a lot of students
don't have time to do it at school, so
they can come out here and experi-
ence it."
Fans of "Resident
On Evil" or "Land of the
CampuS Dead," enjoy experi-
encing a zombie inva-
sion, Bartee said.
"It's more of a thrill," he said.
"Creating it as a game, you can cre-


ate your own rules and have fun
with it."
At the midway point of the
game, according to Nathalie May-
orga, an English senior, humans
were winning. But by the end of the
two-and-a-half-hour game, zombies
outnumbered humans, and only a
few human survivors remained.
Erik Cundiff, a human who sur-
vived through the game, hid, ran
and stayed alone to evade the zom-


bies. Cundiff, a Santa Fe College
sophomore, wanted to play UF's
zombie game during the spring se-
mester but couldn't.
Although not a resident at The
District, he said he came because
the game sounded like fun.
"I think everyone wonders
what happens when you die," said
Cundiff. "I think this is something
where people say, 'I can come back
as a zombie and eat brains.'"

Editorial

Disappointing



Decision

UPD officers not charged
Imagine a world where all you had to do to get away with
shooting a disabled man in the face was say you felt en-
dangered and the law would be on your side.
State Attorney Bill Cervone announced Friday that the
University Police Department officers involved in the March
2 shooting of Kofi Adu-Brempong will not face criminal
charges for their actions.
We cannot say that we find this shocking because the
only people who witnessed the events at Adu-Brempong's
apartment were the officers and Adu-Brempong himself, but
we would be lying if we said we are not disappointed in the
state's decision.
When police showed up to the apartment in Corry Village,
they were responding to reports of screaming coming from
inside. Adu-Brempong was alone and in a state of mental
distress. Cervone said police decided to force entry into the
apartment because they were concerned about the doctoral
candidate's safety.
This would have been all right if police were working to
protect the Ghanaian student and diffuse the problem, but
somehow their initial concern for his safety ended in the man
being shot in the face by an assault rifle. He is still recover-
ing from his injuries and being fed through a tube. It is hard
to imagine that doing this to a man who walks with a cane
could ever be legally justified.
When violence is committed against a police officer, the
perpetrator is dead to rights. Protecting the safety of our
police officers is a righteous cause, but turn the tables and
somehow we are expected to accept a police officer's word
on whether a shooting is warranted.
When it comes to the law, police officers are given a blank
check, but that does not mean there is nothing we can do to
keep this from happening again.
UF President Bernie Machen still has to decide how the
university is going to respond to the shooting, possibly
changing university policy on how the University Police De-
partment responds to calls like the one to Adu-Brempong's
apartment.
We think there needs to be more oversight and control
governing when police officers are justified in shooting
someone and a way to accurately review incidents like this
without having to take an officer's word at face value. There
is a forward-facing camera in most squad cars that records
officers whenever they pull someone over. Measures like
that protect officers and citizens and make sure everything
is done by the book.
Cameras do not lie; we would feel better about the UPD
officers getting off the hook if there was a way for us to see
an unbiased account of what led up to their decision to shoot
Adu-Brempong.
University police departments may have a good deal in
common with other law enforcement agencies, but they are
also unique because they make sure we can get our educa-
tion in a safe environment.
UF is not just another piece of land. People send their chil-
dren here, people grow up here, and maybe once in a while
people go through something where they just want to scream
in their apartment.
We just want to be assured that the UPD knows that, and
until it proves that to us we will not be satisfied with how
this situation is being handled.

Driving comes with social responsibility


couple of weeks ago, at the tender age of 19, I fi-
nally got my Florida driver's license. After a three-
year saga of excuses and missed opportunities, I
finally sucked it up and studied hard enough to pass-
despite running over a cone and failing my first attempt.
While pretty much all college students and young drivers
can relate to the experience, I feel like I have a unique view
of the whole process.
I did not grow up in America, and the idea that it was
imperative I get my driver's license was a foreign one. I
had always used public transportation or asked my par-
ents for a ride while never giving much thought to how
important it was for me to drive on my own.
After I got tired of the stares when I lugged my bags of
Publix groceries onto the bus and of my friends and my
parents making fun me, I was finally goaded into getting
one.
Yet as I was sitting in the Department of Motor Vehicles,
which is perhaps the least accommodating place on Earth,
I began to realize two greater truths behind this event. The
first was that I am becoming an adult. In our culture, at-
taining a driver's license has been inexorably tied to adult-
hood and becoming a full-fledged member of society. I
remember when people would ask for my driver's license
as a form of identification, and I would be forced to hand
over my scratched and ratty Gator 1 Card.
Often, the look on their faces seemed to question my
own maturity and abilities as a person. I feel that, with-
out a driver's license, people are without power and seen
by society as immature and unable to make decisions for
themselves.
As I sat longer in the DMV, I began to realize an even
bigger truth about driver's licenses and their purpose in
our culture, beyond simply making the roads safe for all


drivers. In essence, they tie us even
closer to the automobile and per-
petuate the American car culture, a
culture that has contributed to the
United States being the largest con-
sumer of oil worldwide and is seen
Joshua Lee by some as adding to global climate
letters@alligator org change.
By getting my license, I would
be recognized by society as achieving a milestone
and as an adult. Without it, I feel like I would have
been marginalized and not fully accepted by a soci-
ety that places specific emphasis on the ability to drive.
American consumer culture is closely tied to the automo-
bile and people give their tacit consent to such a culture by
getting their driver's licenses. While the push for cleaner
automobiles and an all-around "green" lifestyle is gaining
steam, it will take a lot more effort to wean ourselves off
the gas pump and bring change to the status quo.
Regardless of your views on climate change, it is unde-
niable that the cars on America's roads affect the environ-
ment and us. Beyond the wide-ranging effects created by
the cars themselves, it is not a far jump to view the ongo-
ing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico as the dirty by-product
of America's car culture.
By making a driver's license a requisite part of adult-
hood and life advancement, American society is placing
heavy emphasis on automobiles and keeps them on our
roads. While everything must be done to find a cleaner,
more sustainable future, we must realize that severing
ties to our gas-burning automobiles will be a monumental
task.

Letter to the Editor
Adult entertainment industry veteran
explains .xxx domain
As a 20-year veteran of the adult enter-
tainment industry, I can tell you this isn't
about controlling access to adult material.
This is about money, plain and simple.
The company asking for the top-level
domain is ICM Registry, which has no
background and no affiliation with the
very industry that this TLD would affect.
The industry does not want the .xxx
TLD. We have made this very clear to the
Internet Corporation for Assigned Names
and Numbers, or ICANN. It may be the
only thing that the adult industry, the
Christian right and the Bush administra-
tion will ever agree on.
The .xxx TLD would do nothing to con-
trol porn on the Internet.


Children could be protected in a much
simpler way, namely by using a .kids do-
main with a strict oversight committee
and browsers that parents can set to access
only that domain. But let's face it, there
isn't nearly as much money in that.
ICM Registry has gone so far as to try
to bribe key adult-industry members and
organizations for support.
The company offered our trade asso-
ciation $8 per domain sold in exchange
for our support. When it was clear that we
were going to turn them down, ICM Regis-
try had enough people join the trade asso-
ciation to sway the vote in ICM Registry's
favor.
The trade association changed the vot-
ing rules, giving a vote only to members
who had been members for three months


or more.
When you consider that ICM Registry
would go to that length to get our approv-
al, you have to ask yourself why.
It's because the main criteria for en-
acting a domain of this sort, according to
ICANN rules, is the support of the indus-
try it affects.
So far, ICM Registry has been unable
to show evidence for that support, and
ICANN has voted it down three times. But
ICM Registry has a lot of money invested
in this, so they keep suing and keep com-
ing back.
Hopefully we can shut this bad idea
down once and for all.
Finally, as a pornographer I assure you
we don't want your kids getting our prod-
uct.

We are fighting tooth and nail to stop
most of the free, adult material on the
Internet because it is in violation of our
copyrights.
We do this to make money, and we
don't make money when people steal our
content and "share" it.
Nor do we target your children. We
target people with credit cards, and your
children don't have credit cards. There is
no return on investment if I target my con-
tent to your children.
Please help me keep my product out of
the hands of children by supporting the
enforcement of copyright laws and target-
ing sites that make stolen, adult content
available to anyone for free.

Student Alliance pa
Last spring, an extraordinary event occurred in Stu-
dent Government: Members of the Progress and Or-
ange and Blue parties put aside their differences and
created a brand-new party that represents all students, not
just the lucky few. This new party, the Student Alliance
party, immediately got to work by opposing the new Reitz
Union student fee. We felt that in times of great economic
hardship, the Unite Party was wrong to pass the buck on to
the Student Body.
The overwhelming rejection of the Reitz Union Fee on
Election Day and the election of 20 members of the Student
Alliance party to the Student Senate sent a clear message
that the students supported our vision for an open and fair
Student Government. While the election proved that it was
the average student voter, not the ubiquitous SG official,
who had the final say in things, the spring campaign also
brought out the very worst of SG. Our party was equated
to the Nazi party in anonymous fliers that were distributed

Building 'total loss' in fire


By KATHERINE BEIN
Alligator Writer

The day after the fire, the air still smelled
of charred wood. Neighbors gathered around
the fenced-off building and stared quietly.
The roof of the two-story building was
gone, fallen walls and debris lie all over the
ground. Looking at the surrounding trees,
observers could discern where the flames had
licked the leaves and left them brown.
The 16-apartment building at Paddock
Club Apartments on Fort Clarke Boulevard
was severely burned late Wednesday. It was
determined to be a "total loss" by Alachua
County Fire Rescue officials.
"It's pretty scary. We saw the smoke across
town on 34th [Avenue]," said Luis Vargas, a
resident of Paddock Club Apartments. "[My
neighbor] said she didn't even open her win-
dows and the whole room was glowing or-
ange."
Each of the building's residents, 28 adults
and seven children in all, were displaced
from their homes. Members of both the Ala-
chua County Fire Rescue and Gainesville Fire
Rescue arrived on the scene to fight the blaze.
But their efforts were not sufficient to quickly
quench the fire, as virtually all possessions in-


side the building were destroyed. No one was
hurt, however, and all residents have been ac-
counted for, said ACFR spokeswoman Carol
Davis.
"It's pretty scary. We saw the
smoke across town on 34th [Av-
enue]."
Luis Vargas
resident of Paddock Club Apartments

The State Fire Marshal's office sent officials
down to aid in the investigation process, she
said. The marshals have estimated the dam-
age to be around $1.5 to $2 million. Although
investigators continue to look into the cause
of the fire, they know it began on the second
floor, Davis said.
Many apartment complexes in town have
joined to help the Salvation Army and Red
Cross in their relief efforts, alerting their resi-
dents to the displaced families' needs.
E-mails are circulating that call for linens,
bedding and pillows, food, clothing of all
sizes, furniture and monetary donations to be
brought to Paddock Club Apartments main
office. To help, contact the complex manager,
Becky Sands, at 352-333-9922.


Man, 21, drowns in pool


* HE WAS A SANTA FE COLLEGE
ALUMNUS.

By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER
Alligator Contributing Writer

A 21-year-old Gainesville man
drowned in a pool at the Bellamy
Forge condominium complex shortly
before noon Saturday.
The victim, Wayne Lawrence II,
who was visiting a friend, swam into
the deep end of the complex's pool
and sunk beneath the surface, ac-
cording to Tscharna Senn, spokes-
woman for the Gainesville Police
Department.
"Everyone was in the pool having
fun," she said. "They didn't actually
realize he was underwater."
Once those at the scene realized
Lawrence was underwater, they
pulled him out and tried to resusci-


tate using him CPR, Senn said.
Responding to a call made by
someone on the scene, EMS took over
upon arrival and transported Law-
rence to the hospital, where he was
pronounced dead.
Although the investigation is on-
going and no autopsy has been sub-
mitted, Senn said the investigating
officers do not believe the incident is
drug- or alcohol-related.
Local Senn also said the po-
News lice have no indication
that any suspicious ac-
tivity or foul play was involved.
Investigators are not currently
considering suicide as a possibility,
she said.
According to Lawrence's Face-
book page, he was an alumnus of
Santa Fe College and Buchholz High
School.
Lawrence leaves behind an infant
daughter.

Master gardeners sell


4,500 plants to public


mlIUlrW rall-lm I / flll tlUI
Caleb Burton, 24, right, pushes his cart at the Alachua County Master Gardener Plant Sale on Satur-
day. Burton said he plans to use the plants for home landscaping as a birthday gift to his wife.


By ANDREW PANTAZI
Alligator Contributing Writer

Caleb Burton was looking for plants
for his landscaping project. Every year
for his wife's birthday, he does garden-
ing work. This year, he went to the Ala-
chua County Master Gardener Plant
Sale.
The program, a volunteer-based or-
ganization that helps the public with
plant care, uses the plant sale to fund its
projects, according to Howard Leinart, a
master gardener.
About 4,500 of the 4,700 plants at the
Alachua County Master Gardener Plant
Sale were sold Saturday. The plants
were grown by about 95 master garden-
ers, and about 80 master gardeners vol-
unteered at the plant sale, according to
Wendy Wilber, a horticulture extension
agent with the Alachua County Agricul-
tural Extension Office.
The plants were sold cheaper than
at local plant stores, said Burton, a


Gainesville carpenter.
"We're definitely getting a lot more
for our buck than other places," he said.
The Master Gardener program is part
of UF's Institute of Food and Agricultur-
al Sciences Extension Service.
Volunteering as a master gardener is
free, outside of the $160 in materials and
75 hours of volunteer time, Leinart said.
Leinart, who became a master gar-
dener in 2007, enjoys serving the public.
"I retired and my
Around wife said that I need
Gainesville to get the hell out of
the house," he said.
"It's good. I like giving to the public,
sharing my knowledge."
Leinart said one of the primary costs
covered by the plant sale is the Master
Gardener's school program.
The school program, according to
Bob Fennell, a master gardener involved
with the program, teaches about 50 kids
each from about half of Alachua Coun-
ty's elementary schools how to garden.


UF's own investigation is ongoing

charges of one count of second-degree aggra-
vated assault and one count of third-degree
resisting arrest with violence.
In his statement, Cervone acknowledged
UPD's right to enter the residence, as the of-
ficers had a legitimate reason to believe Adu-
Brempong might have hurt himself inside.
"Had that action not been taken and had
he or others come to harm because of inac-
tion," he said, ". .. an equal or stronger issue
as to the propriety of police inaction would
doubtless have been raised."
Cervone added that it is not his place to
review crisis procedure, just the legality of
the action. He said questions of policy were
best left to community discussion.


He also found no reason to charge the of-
ficers for their use of force, citing that "No
one else, civilian or otherwise, was in a po-
sition to hear anything directly relevant to
those events other than
Adu-Brempong," adding
that the student's cred-
ibility was tarnished by his
apparent unstable mental
health.
Under Florida law,
Cervone anyone has the right to
use deadly force against
someone who appears threatening. Cervone
reasoned the police reports were concurrent
with that law.
Cervone ended his statement with a call
to put the issue to rest.


He had a seizure at home

humor, motivation and good nature
earned him the title, she said.
An official candlelight vigil was
organized on Turlington Plaza on
Sunday at 8 p.m. in memory of the
athlete.
"It was helpful for people to get
out their emotion," Codner said.
The former athlete, who also
played for football for Blanche Ely
High School in his hometown of Sun-


rise, was known as quite the cook to
those close to him, often offering to
prepare meals on Sundays for his fra-
ternity brothers and neighbors.
The 6-2, 263-pound Abel wore the
No. 62 jersey, dressed for 10 games
and saw playing time when the
Gators played the Citadel in 2008. He
was named Scout Team Player of the
Week prior to the game against South
Carolina in 2008. Abel also made the
SEC Fall Academic Honor Roll in
2008-2009, according to UF archives.

Gators sweep Regional


* UF BEAT FlU 13-3 TO CLINCH A
SUPER REGIONAL BERTH.

By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer

Although it was coming off its worst
loss of the season, the Florida softball
team proved last weekend it can play its
best when it matters most.
The No. 4 Gators (47-8) successfully
rebounded from last week's 9-1 South-
eastern Conference Tournament semi-
final loss to then-No. 17 LSU by rolling
through Gainesville's NCAA Tournament
Regional, which ended with UF's five-in-
ning 13-3 run-rule beatdown of FIU (38-
21) on Sunday.
All weekend, Florida's brightest star
was junior ace Stephanie Brombacher,
who gave up only three runs and 11 base


runners while pitching every one of the
team's 19 innings.
"The way she's been pitching the last
two games, I gotta give her the ball,"
coach Tim Walton said of his decision to
start Brombacher in her third game in as
many days. "She had to have the ball to-
day and she really pitched well."
Brombacher was aided by Florida's po-
tent offense, which averaged more than
eight runs per game on the weekend and
twice gave Brombacher a lead before she
ever took the field.
The Gators' quick-strike ability was
never more apparent than on Sunday,
when the team scored five runs on one hit
in the top of the first thanks to a grand
slam by freshman Brittany Schutte.
"(The run support) just lets me go out
there and make my pitches and lets my

Adams ends long slump


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Staff Writer

Josh Adams began the regular
season with a bang and ended it with
one, too.
But he has not enjoyed that same
success in between.
The junior second baseman hit
two home runs in the season opener,
and tallied four RBIs in the last two
games of the Gators' schedule Friday
and Saturday. Adams hit 9 for 12 in
those three contests.
However, he still came into
last weekend's monumental series
against South Carolina hitting just
.221.
"(Slumps are) not easy. You just
go out there and keep playing be-
cause you know everybody goes
through it," Adams said.
But by the time that series came to
an end, his average had shot up 16
points as Adams helped the Gators
take two of three from the Gamecocks


to clinch the No. 1 seed in the South-
eastern Conference Tournament. No.
4 Florida (40-13, 22-8 SEC) will face
LSU (36-20, 14-16 SEC) in the first
round of the tourney Wednesday at
5:30 p.m. in Hoover, Ala.
His numbers from the weekend
could have been even better if South
Carolina right fielder Whit Merrifield
hadn't stuck his
glove over the fence
and stolen an op-
posite-field homer
away from Adams
Sunday.
But the fact he
Shas been staying
Adams back and taking the
ball the other way is
a good sign for the Gators.
"(Hitting the ball to opposite field
has) been my approach ever since I
got here. I kind of strayed away from
that in the beginning of the season,"
he said. "It has just taken me a while

Age ain't nothing
Kevin O'Sullivan is the R. Kelly of
college baseball coaches.
Like the freakin'-weekend-lov-
ing R&B sensation, Florida's coach does not
worry about age when choosing among his
stable of talent.
Look at UF's catcher, shortstop and third
baseman. Look at two-thirds of the starting
rotation. Look at the DH.
All freshmen.
Playing for a top-5 program, these first-
year players have faced essentially the same
questions over and over.
Is it possible to have an immediate im-
pact in the Southeastern Conference? What
do you think it will be like to play in your
first SEC series? How big of a help has (in-
sert upperclassman's name here) been?
The answers, like the questions, are con-
sistent. "I'm just here to work hard." "Play-
ing in the SEC is going to be tough." "The
older guys have been incredibly helpful."
Bull.
Freshmen don't need that much help.
The No. 4 Gators did not have to overcome
their youth to win the conference champi-
onship this season; they had to embrace it.

And pitcher/des-

The concept of a small-town legend ad-

come to Florida, a haven for top-10 recruit-

to get back into that mind frame and start going the
other way."
Hitting two home runs in the season opener turned
out to be a negative. Adams said the early power surge
made him go away from his original approach at the
plate.
However, he is starting to show flashes from his
days as a two-time member of the All-SEC team.
The right-handed batter sprayed four of his six hits
to right field against South Carolina.


His recent success has not come without a price,
though.
"He's been working awfully hard. He came down
for early batting practice (Friday) and (Saturday),"
coach Kevin O'Sullivan said. "He left the hotel at
lunch time with a couple other guys and he's been
putting in the work."
But with the postseason looming, he is reaping the
benefits at the right time.
"It feels good," Adams said. "Confidence comes in
many ways and I definitely needed it .It's definitely a
good time for me to start swinging."


UF second baseman Josh Adams was hitting .221 before going 6 for 13 in the teams' SEC-clinching series
against South Carolina.

the top-10 in singles competition.
Midfielder Erika Tymrak played in the
U-17 Women's World Cup in New Zealand.
She adjusted to the SEC easily, finishing
her freshman campaign third on the team
in points scored while displaying the best
touch.
And yet, people are still surprised each


time this happens. How are you doing this?
This is the SEC!
A paradox exists in college sports. We -
fans, coaches, the media - anoint every blue-
chip prospect as the team's savior, until he
or she arrives on campus.
Just ask Bob Knight, who compared ev-
ery newcomer to a young Isiah Thomas,
then convinced himself those same recruits
couldn't even dribble a basketball once they


became Hoosiers.
But if a player like Maddox is considered
the gem of the No. 1 recruiting class in the
nation, we should be ready for him to lead
the team in slugging.
A freshman's success can also be sur-
prising because the newcomer himself low-
ers expectations. Players like Maddox are
trained by the UF media relations team to
feign open-eyed wonder, for good reason.


The truth - that freshmen are recruited to
put points on the board immediately - cur-
rently comes across as brash.
But if people realized how experienced
first-year players really are, the truth would
not lead to unfairly negative comparisons to
R. Kelly, who in 2007 said:
"I'm the Ali of today. I'm the Marvin
Gaye of today. I'm the Bob Marley of today.
I'm the Martin Luther King."

defense work," Brombacher said of her team jump-
ing out to the early lead. "It kinda takes a little bit of
weight off of my shoulders."
The Golden Panthers scored two in the bottom of
the first to cut the Gators' lead to three, but that was
as close as they would get as senior Corrie Brooks
pushed the lead back to five in the third with a two-
run home run to left.
The round-tripper was Brooks' ninth of the season
and the team's record-high 100th on the year.
"It's just about the way we practice and the way
we mentally approach hitting one through nine,"
Walton said. "When your eight-hole
hitter hits a 270-foot home run and does
it regularly, it's like Brittany Schutte
said, you just feed off of each other and
Softball keep on building momentum and that's
how we're able to hit so many."
Two of the weekend's long balls came from junior
Kelsey Bruder, who was without question Florida's
top offensive performer.
The right fielder, who moved up three spots to
third in the lineup due to some favorable pitching
matchups, went 6 for 10 with two home runs and 4
RBIs in the Regional.
"I don't feel any different I'm just going out there
with the same approach of just get on base," Bruder
said after Saturday's 6-0 victory over UCF. "Every
time you try to hit a home run it doesn't work out so
I'm just thinking single up the middle."
Following Sunday's win, Florida will host No. 14
Arizona State for a three-game series in the NCAA
Super Regional round of 16, which begins Saturday
at 7:30 p.m. and concludes on Sunday.

UF vies for national title


* THE GATORS WILL PLAY FOR THE
NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP TODAY AT 2 P.M.

STAFF REPORT

When the season began, UF women's ten-
nis coach Roland Thornqvist said he felt like
it had been a long time since 2003, the year
Florida won its last national title.
He might not be referencing 2003 much
longer. The No. 3 Gators (29-2) have the op-
portunity to bring a fifth NCAA Team Cham-
pionship back to Gainesville when they face
No. 8 Stanford (25-1) today at 2 p.m. on ES-
PNU.
The 2003 championship was won in a 4-3
upset against the Cardinal in Gainesville,
where the home crowd was a factor. This
time, the Gators will not be on their home
court when they face Stanford, but the Dan
Magill Tennis Complex is hardly foreign to
this team.
Monday's 4-0 win against No. 2 North
Carolina marked UF's seventh win this sea-
son in Athens, Ga.
Florida's top three singles players all en-
ter the match on a high note.
Southeastern Conference Tournament
Most Valuable Player Marrit Boonstra con-
tinued her strong showing in Athens with
a 6-2, 6-2 win over North Carolina's Sophie
Grabinski that extended her singles win
streak to 17 matches.
Her doubles partner, No. 8 Allie Will, put
UF in position to clinch with a 6-3, 6-3 win
over No. 54 Katrina Tsang at the No. 2 spot.
Will enters today's match undefeated in
dual-match singles this season with 26 wins.
Fellow freshman sensation No. 9 Lauren


Embree sent the Gators to the championship
match with a 6-2, 1-6, 7-5 defeat of Sanaz Ma-
rand.
Since a tough three-match losing stretch at
the ITA Team Indoor Tournament in Febru-
ary, Embree has strung together a 16-match
winning streak heading into the champion-
ship match. Embree's strong showing at the
No. 1 position this year for Florida helped
make her the first freshman to be named
the SEC Player of the Year. She was also
named the ITA Southeast Region Rookie of
the Year.
Saturday against Miami, Embree achieved
her most impressive win of the season when
she upset No. 7 Laura Vallverdu.
However, she may face her toughest chal-
lenge today when she takes on No. 4 Hillary
Barte.
In Stanford, the Gators face a traditional
power (15 national titles), but a relative un-
known in regards to this year.
Many fans and experts consider this to be
a down year for the Pacific-10 Conference in
women's tennis and Stanford did not take
part in the ITA Team Indoor Tournament in
Madison, Wis.
UF faced one Pac-10 opponent at the in-
door tournament in February, UCLA, and
lost 4-1. More recently, the Gators defeated
Washington 4-0 on May 14 in the second
round of the NCAA Tournament.
The No. 6 Gators men's tennis team (21-5)
will not be taking part in the men's portion of
today's championships. No. 12 Georgia, the
tournament host, upset UF 4-2 in the round
of 16 Friday. Senior Antoine Benneteau and
junior Alexandre Lacroix will take part in the
NCAA Individual Championships beginning
Wednesday in Athens.

Gators advance past Regional to NCAA Championships


By JAIME MANHEIMER
Alligator Writer

The Gators enjoyed the luck of
the Irish in South Bend, Ind., at the
Central Regional this past weekend,
and finished high enough to earn a
bid for the NCAA Championships.
Florida joins first-place Stanford,
runner-up FSU, and Duke and LSU
who finished in the fourth and fifth
spots.


"To finish in third wasn't exactly
what we wanted, but we live to see
another day," UF coach Buddy Al-
exander said. "It was an interesting
week of ebbs and flows, but I think
we played solid for the most part.
We are happy to be advancing to the
next round."
This is Alexander's 22nd appear-
ance in the NCAA Championships
in his 23 years as UF's coach.
Florida finished the first day of
the Central Regional in second place


at 279, -1. Freshman Phillip Choi
(69,-1) and junior
Bank Vongvanij
(68, -2) were the
standouts for
UF on day one.
Vongvanij hit 16
straight pars be-
fore sinking back
to back birdies to
Alexander finish the round.
"Bank was terrific, and it was a
great round for him," Alexander


said. "We played solid in spite of a
shaky start; the team really turned
things around on four and five."
The second day of the tourna-
ment was suspended due to inclem-
ent weather with all five UF golfers
scattered between holes 13 to 16. UF
finished the day in fourth place with
a score of 506, +5.
The Gators were a couple shots
off the bubble, and were encouraged
by Alexander to 'step up and get a
good round in'.


After strong finishes earlier that
day including the holes from the
suspended second day, the Gators
played well as they posted a one-
under, 279 in the final round and
carded a final tournament score of
838, -2.
"By far the biggest and best thing
was that we were able to finish
off the second round as we did. It
gave us cushion going into the final
round that we didn't have," Alexan-
der said.

After participating in a roadside cleanup with his fraternity brothers at Southwest 62nd Boulevard on Saturday afternoon, the 21-year-old reported feeling chest pains around 7 p.m. He suffered a seizure at his home in Campus Lodge Apartments, according to Michael Bowie, an adviser to Abel's fraternity, Omega Psi Phi. Bowie said one of Abel's fraternity brothers called the paramedics and tried to resuscitate him before help arrived. He was taken to Shands Hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly after midnight. Bowie remembered Abel as a funny person who truly cared about people. "He was more than just a student to me," Bowie said. "He was a friend." When friends learned of Abel's death, they arrived at Campus Lodge Apartments to hold a prayer vigil in the parking lot, according to Kimone Codner, a close friend to Abel through the National Panhellenic Council.

The Musical Chairs Project raised about $2,500 for the Friends of Alachua County Public Schools Elementary Arts Programs Fund, which is coordinated by two retired Alachua County teachers. The event consisted of an auction followed by a concert. Fourteen revamped chairs were sold during the auction, which drew a crowd of about 100. UF's College of Fine Arts was about to discard the old chairs, but Katie Levy, UF graphic design alumna and co-organizer of the event, asked local artists to paint them for the auction instead. Levy used Facebook to contact bands and arranged for the venue space. "It was a lot of work but very rewarding," said Levy, adding that she's been involved in the Alachua County public school arts programs since she started school. About 100 more people came out to hear bands Levek and Umoja Orchestra and singer Ricky Kendall, band Local member of Paxico Via Mexico. News tAnna Walters, a UF sophomore, said she came tosee Levek after enjoying the band's music earlier in the week at Flaco's Cuban Bakery. She didn't know it was a benefit concert but said that supporting the fund was an added bonus. Sue Johnson, a retired art teacher who co-formed the fund, said she was glad to see different generations come to the concert and donate. "With all that goes on in the world, it's pretty cool to be connected through the arts," Johnson said. Gail and Jim Moss, who purchased a mosaic-decorated chair for $300, attended the concert after to continue to show their support of the arts. "These young people are doing amazing things," Gail Moss said. "I have to support that." The remaining 13 chairs sold for between $50 and $300 each. Johnson started the fund after the school board was forced to cut the music and arts curriculum in half in 2008 because of budget cuts. The fund, which is also coordinated by retired music teacher Cheryl Poe, has contributed $1,000 to each art and music program in 25 elementary schools in Alachua County, totaling $50,000. Johnson said their goal is to start a $100,000 endowment to secure the future of the elementary arts and music programs. "We want to see the program grow and keep a high level of awareness in the community," she said. "The arts open you up to so many different things, and it's connecting all of us." jeyrienas/R iigaur Rock 'n' Roll, Rain or Shine Senior Chief Musician John Fisher, left, and Musician 1st Class Shana Sullivan, right, lead the Cruisers, the Navy's premier entertainment ensemble, through a set of contemporary pop songs.

AROUND GAINESVILLE $580 million budgeted for Shands By MICHAELA TRIMBLE Alligator Contributing Writer The UF Health Science Center and Shands HealthCare announced a $580 million, five-year-plan on Thursday. The plan will be primarily funded through philanthropy, grant income and UF support, according to a press release. After a nine-month planning process by a 25-member cabinet of university and hospital leaders, the plan, known as "Forward Together," was formed to increase research potential for the university. "[W]e want to become a national model for education in the health science profession," David S. Guzick, head of UF & Shands health system, wrote in the release. Future plans include the creation of an electronic medical record system, the building of a Shands Hospital for Children and Women and the construction of primary care offices throughout the area. "This is a significant investment," Guzick said.

TUESDAY, MAY 25, 2010 0 ALLIGATOR, 5 ) b(le' Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers Humans vs. Zombies resurrects at apartment complex 0 THE GAME LASTED TWOAND-A-HALF HOURS. By ANDREW PANTAZI Alligator Contributing Writer The zombie epidemic has infected a Gainesville apartment complex. The District apartments on Southwest 62nd Boulevard was home to a Humans vs. Zombies game Saturday night. About 30 people participated in the game that resembled an elaborate version of tag. Mario Bartee, a fourth-year nursing student and community ambassador for The District, said he organized the Humans vs. Zombies game to keep residents active and social. "I don't have enough time to really interact with it at school," Bartee said. "I figured a lot of students don't have time to do it at school, so they can come out here and experience it." Fans of "Resident On Evil" or "Land of the CampuS Dead," enjoy experiencing a zombie invasion, Bartee said. "It's more of a thrill," he said. "Creating it as a game, you can create your own rules and have fun with it." At the midway point of the game, according to Nathalie Mayorga, an English senior, humans were winning. But by the end of the two-and-a-half-hour game, zombies outnumbered humans, and only a few human survivors remained. Erik Cundiff, a human who survived through the game, hid, ran and stayed alone to evade the zombies. Cundiff, a Santa Fe College sophomore, wanted to play UF's zombie game during the spring semester but couldn't. Although not a resident at The District, he said he came because the game sounded like fun. "I think everyone wonders what happens when you die," said Cundiff. "I think this is something where people say, 'I can come back as a zombie and eat brains."'

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MAY 25, 2010 Editorial Disappointing Decision UPD officers not charged Imagine a world where all you had to do to get away with shooting a disabled man in the face was say you felt endangered and the law would be on your side. State Attorney Bill Cervone announced Friday that the University Police Department officers involved in the March 2 shooting of Kofi Adu-Brempong will not face criminal charges for their actions. We cannot say that we find this shocking because the only people who witnessed the events at Adu-Brempong's apartment were the officers and Adu-Brempong himself, but we would be lying if we said we are not disappointed in the state's decision. When police showed up to the apartment in Corry Village, they were responding to reports of screaming coming from inside. Adu-Brempong was alone and in a state of mental distress. Cervone said police decided to force entry into the apartment because they were concerned about the doctoral candidate's safety. This would have been all right if police were working to protect the Ghanaian student and diffuse the problem, but somehow their initial concern for his safety ended in the man being shot in the face by an assault rifle. He is still recovering from his injuries and being fed through a tube. It is hard to imagine that doing this to a man who walks with a cane could ever be legally justified. When violence is committed against a police officer, the perpetrator is dead to rights. Protecting the safety of our police officers is a righteous cause, but turn the tables and somehow we are expected to accept a police officer's word on whether a shooting is warranted. When it comes to the law, police officers are given a blank check, but that does not mean there is nothing we can do to keep this from happening again. UF President Bernie Machen still has to decide how the university is going to respond to the shooting, possibly changing university policy on how the University Police Department responds to calls like the one to Adu-Brempong's apartment. We think there needs to be more oversight and control governing when police officers are justified in shooting someone and a way to accurately review incidents like this without having to take an officer's word at face value. There is a forward-facing camera in most squad cars that records officers whenever they pull someone over. Measures like that protect officers and citizens and make sure everything is done by the book. Cameras do not lie; we would feel better about the UPD officers getting off the hook if there was a way for us to see an unbiased account of what led up to their decision to shoot Adu-Brempong. University police departments may have a good deal in common with other law enforcement agencies, but they are also unique because they make sure we can get our education in a safe environment. UF is not just another piece of land. People send their children here, people grow up here, and maybe once in a while people go through something where they just want to scream in their apartment. We just want to be assured that the UPD knows that, and until it proves that to us we will not be satisfied with how this situation is being handled. all e independent ftorida alligto Rachael 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?

NEEfD 1b "LTf13 -tMT O^JE w72'O Column Driving comes with social responsibility couple of weeks ago, at the tender age of 19, I finally got my Florida driver's license. After a threeyear saga of excuses and missed opportunities, I finally sucked it up and studied hard enough to passdespite running over a cone and failing my first attempt. While pretty much all college students and young drivers can relate to the experience, I feel like I have a unique view of the whole process. I did not grow up in America, and the idea that it was imperative I get my driver's license was a foreign one. I had always used public transportation or asked my parents for a ride while never giving much thought to how important it was for me to drive on my own. After I got tired of the stares when I lugged my bags of Publix groceries onto the bus and of my friends and my parents making fun me, I was finally goaded into getting one. Yet as I was sitting in the Department of Motor Vehicles, which is perhaps the least accommodating place on Earth, I began to realize two greater truths behind this event. The first was that I am becoming an adult. In our culture, attaining a driver's license has been inexorably tied to adulthood and becoming a full-fledged member of society. I remember when people would ask for my driver's license as a form of identification, and I would be forced to hand over my scratched and ratty Gator 1 Card. Often, the look on their faces seemed to question my own maturity and abilities as a person. I feel that, without a driver's license, people are without power and seen by society as immature and unable to make decisions for themselves. As I sat longer in the DMV, I began to realize an even bigger truth about driver's licenses and their purpose in our culture, beyond simply making the roads safe for all Joshua Lee letters@alligator org drivers. In essence, they tie us even closer to the automobile and perpetuate the American car culture, a culture that has contributed to the United States being the largest consumer of oil worldwide and is seen by some as adding to global climate change. By getting my license, I would be recognized by society as achieving a milestone and as an adult. Without it, I feel like I would have been marginalized and not fully accepted by a society that places specific emphasis on the ability to drive. American consumer culture is closely tied to the automobile and people give their tacit consent to such a culture by getting their driver's licenses. While the push for cleaner automobiles and an all-around "green" lifestyle is gaining steam, it will take a lot more effort to wean ourselves off the gas pump and bring change to the status quo. Regardless of your views on climate change, it is undeniable that the cars on America's roads affect the environment and us. Beyond the wide-ranging effects created by the cars themselves, it is not a far jump to view the ongoing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico as the dirty by-product of America's car culture. By making a driver's license a requisite part of adulthood and life advancement, American society is placing heavy emphasis on automobiles and keeps them on our roads. While everything must be done to find a cleaner, more sustainable future, we must realize that severing ties to our gas-burning automobiles will be a monumental task.

Letter to the Editor Adult entertainment industry veteran explains .xxx domain As a 20-year veteran of the adult entertainment industry, I can tell you this isn't about controlling access to adult material. This is about money, plain and simple. The company asking for the top-level domain is ICM Registry, which has no background and no affiliation with the very industry that this TLD would affect. The industry does not want the .xxx TLD. We have made this very clear to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN. It may be the only thing that the adult industry, the Christian right and the Bush administration will ever agree on. The .xxx TLD would do nothing to control porn on the Internet. Children could be protected in a much simpler way, namely by using a .kids domain with a strict oversight committee and browsers that parents can set to access only that domain. But let's face it, there isn't nearly as much money in that. ICM Registry has gone so far as to try to bribe key adult-industry members and organizations for support. The company offered our trade association $8 per domain sold in exchange for our support. When it was clear that we were going to turn them down, ICM Registry had enough people join the trade association to sway the vote in ICM Registry's favor. The trade association changed the voting rules, giving a vote only to members who had been members for three months or more. When you consider that ICM Registry would go to that length to get our approval, you have to ask yourself why. It's because the main criteria for enacting a domain of this sort, according to ICANN rules, is the support of the industry it affects. So far, ICM Registry has been unable to show evidence for that support, and ICANN has voted it down three times. But ICM Registry has a lot of money invested in this, so they keep suing and keep coming back. Hopefully we can shut this bad idea down once and for all. Finally, as a pornographer I assure you we don't want your kids getting our product. TUESDAY, MAY 25, 2010 0 ALLIGATOR, 7 We are fighting tooth and nail to stop most of the free, adult material on the Internet because it is in violation of our copyrights. We do this to make money, and we don't make money when people steal our content and "share" it. Nor do we target your children. We target people with credit cards, and your children don't have credit cards. There is no return on investment if I target my content to your children. Please help me keep my product out of the hands of children by supporting the enforcement of copyright laws and targeting sites that make stolen, adult content available to anyone for free.

All the while we the Student Body president weren't being simply rubberdent Government: Members of the Progress and OrSpea king Out were being accused of being Zionstamped. ange and Blue parties put aside their differences and ists and having the blood of PalesThey draped out of the Putter all those nas episodes created a brand-new party that represents all students, not just the lucky few. This new party, the Student Alliance party, immediately got to work by opposing the new Reitz Union student fee. We felt that in times of great economic hardship, the Unite Party was wrong to pass the buck on to the Student Body. The overwhelming rejection of the Reitz Union Fee on Election Day and the election of 20 members of the Student Alliance party to the Student Senate sent a clear message that the students supported our vision for an open and fair Student Government. While the election proved that it was the average student voter, not the ubiquitous SG official, who had the final say in things, the spring campaign also brought out the very worst of SG. Our party was equated to the Nazi party in anonymous fliers that were distributed tinians on our hands. The cowardly perpetrators of these mendacious rumors failed to mention that one of our senators is the president of Justice for Palestine, and many of our members are of the Jewish faith and have lost relatives in the Holocaust. Undeterred by these attacks, we redoubled our efforts at cleaning up SG and made sure that the budget for the upcoming fiscal year was transparent. It is against the backdrop of such significant progress that three Student Alliance party senators and three nonstudents decided, without any forewarning, to reconstitute the "Progress Party" last Tuesday in Senate. They said we were being dilatory for questioning cabinet appointees for an average of three minutes to ensure qualified individuals received the positions and that the appointments of from the previous campaign cycle, and most disturbingly, they claimed we had abandoned the values of the original Progress Party. The vision of "progress through participation," for example changing Student Government by making every student a stakeholder has been at the core of our new party. Our graphics and media, organizational outreach and grassroots campaigning all drew from the Progress Party and had members of the original Progress Party at the helm. This past semester has witnessed the emergence of a credible new movement in Student Government that seeks to end decades of corruption and student indifference. Let's not piss that away. Keir Lamont and Yevgen Sautin are the president and communications director for the Student Alliance party. HEALTH INSURANCE "Students need Health Insurance.

8, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MAY 25, 2010 LOCAL Building 'total loss' in fire By KATHERINE BEIN Alligator Writer The day after the fire, the air still smelled of charred wood. Neighbors gathered around the fenced-off building and stared quietly. The roof of the two-story building was gone, fallen walls and debris lie all over the ground. Looking at the surrounding trees, observers could discern where the flames had licked the leaves and left them brown. The 16-apartment building at Paddock Club Apartments on Fort Clarke Boulevard was severely burned late Wednesday. It was determined to be a "total loss" by Alachua County Fire Rescue officials. "It's pretty scary. We saw the smoke across town on 34th [Avenue]," said Luis Vargas, a resident of Paddock Club Apartments. "[My neighbor] said she didn't even open her windows and the whole room was glowing orange., Each of the building's residents, 28 adults and seven children in all, were displaced from their homes. Members of both the Alachua County Fire Rescue and Gainesville Fire Rescue arrived on the scene to fight the blaze. But their efforts were not sufficient to quickly quench the fire, as virtually all possessions inside the building were destroyed. No one was hurt, however, and all residents have been accounted for, said ACFR spokeswoman Carol Davis. "It's pretty scary. We saw the smoke across town on 34th [Avenue]." Luis Vargas resident of Paddock Club Apartments The State Fire Marshal's office sent officials down to aid in the investigation process, she said. The marshals have estimated the damage to be around $1.5 to $2 million. Although investigators continue to look into the cause of the fire, they know it began on the second floor, Davis said. Many apartment complexes in town have joined to help the Salvation Army and Red Cross in their relief efforts, alerting their residents to the displaced families' needs. E-mails are circulating that call for linens, bedding and pillows, food, clothing of all sizes, furniture and monetary donations to be brought to Paddock Club Apartments main office. To help, contact the complex manager, Becky Sands, at 352-333-9922. Man, 21, drowns in pool HE WAS A SANTA FE COLLEGE ALUMNUS. By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER Alligator Contributing Writer A 21-year-old Gainesville man drowned in a pool at the Bellamy Forge condominium complex shortly before noon Saturday. The victim, Wayne Lawrence II, who was visiting a friend, swam into the deep end of the complex's pool and sunk beneath the surface, according to Tscharna Senn, spokeswoman for the Gainesville Police Department. "Everyone was in the pool having fun," she said. "They didn't actually realize he was underwater." Once those at the scene realized Lawrence was underwater, they pulled him out and tried to resuscitate using him CPR, Senn said. Responding to a call made by someone on the scene, EMS took over upon arrival and transported Lawrence to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Although the investigation is ongoing and no autopsy has been submitted, Senn said the investigating officers do not believe the incident is drugor alcohol-related. Local Senn also said the poNews lice have no indication that any suspicious activity or foul play was involved. Investigators are not currently considering suicide as a possibility, she said. According to Lawrence's Facebook page, he was an alumnus of Santa Fe College and Buchholz High School. Lawrence leaves behind an infant daughter. B3REAK THE MOLD.

TUESDAY, MAY 25, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 9 Master gardeners sell 4,500 plants to public .iulu a.I / mu.aw Caleb Burton, 24, right, pushes his cart at the Alachua County Master Gardener Plant Sale on Saturday. Burton said he plans to use the plants for home landscaping as a birthday gift to his wife. By ANDREW PANTAZI Alligator Contributing Writer Caleb Burton was looking for plants for his landscaping project. Every year for his wife's birthday, he does gardening work. This year, he went to the Alachua County Master Gardener Plant Sale. The program, a volunteer-based organization that helps the public with plant care, uses the plant sale to fund its projects, according to Howard Leinart, a master gardener. About 4,500 of the 4,700 plants at the Alachua County Master Gardener Plant Sale were sold Saturday. The plants were grown by about 95 master gardeners, and about 80 master gardeners volunteered at the plant sale, according to Wendy Wilber, a horticulture extension agent with the Alachua County Agricultural Extension Office. The plants were sold cheaper than at local plant stores, said Burton, a Gainesville carpenter. "We're definitely getting a lot more for our buck than other places," he said. The Master Gardener program is part of UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Extension Service. Volunteering as a master gardener is free, outside of the $160 in materials and 75 hours of volunteer time, Leinart said. Leinart, who became a master gardener in 2007, enjoys serving the public. "I retired and my Around wife said that I need Gainesville to get the hell out of the house," he said. "It's good. I like giving to the public, sharing my knowledge." Leinart said one of the primary costs covered by the plant sale is the Master Gardener's school program. The school program, according to Bob Fennell, a master gardener involved with the program, teaches about 50 kids each from about half of Alachua County's elementary schools how to garden. UF's own investigation is ongoing UPD, from page I charges of one count of second-degree aggravated assault and one count of third-degree resisting arrest with violence. In his statement, Cervone acknowledged UPD's right to enter the residence, as the officers had a legitimate reason to believe AduBrempong might have hurt himself inside. "Had that action not been taken and had he or others come to harm because of inaction," he said, ". ..an equal or stronger issue as to the propriety of police inaction would doubtless have been raised." Cervone added that it is not his place to review crisis procedure, just the legality of the action. He said questions of policy were best left to community discussion. He also found no reason to charge the officers for their use of force, citing that "No one else, civilian or otherwise, was in a position to hear anything directly relevant to those events other than Adu-Brempong," adding that the student's credibility was tarnished by his apparent unstable mental health. Under Florida law, Cervone anyone has the right to use deadly force against someone who appears threatening. Cervone reasoned the police reports were concurrent with that law. Cervone ended his statement with a call to put the issue to rest. He had a seizure at home ABEL, from page 1 humor, motivation and good nature earned him the title, she said. An official candlelight vigil was organized on Turlington Plaza on Sunday at 8 p.m. in memory of the athlete. "It was helpful for people to get out their emotion," Codner said. The former athlete, who also played for football for Blanche Ely High School in his hometown of Sunrise, was known as quite the cook to those close to him, often offering to prepare meals on Sundays for his fraternity brothers and neighbors. The 6-2, 263-pound Abel wore the No. 62 jersey, dressed for 10 games and saw playing time when the Gators played the Citadel in 2008. He was named Scout Team Player of the Week prior to the game against South Carolina in 2008. Abel also made the SEC Fall Academic Honor Roll in 2008-2009, according to UF archives.

Sports TUESDAY, MAY 25, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Gators sweep Regional 0 UF BEAT FIU 13-3 TO CLINCH A SUPER REGIONAL BERTH. By GREG LUCA Alligator Writer Although it was coming off its worst loss of the season, the Florida softball team proved last weekend it can play its best when it matters most. The No. 4 Gators (47-8) successfully rebounded from last week's 9-1 Southeastern Conference Tournament semifinal loss to then-No. 17 LSU by rolling through Gainesville's NCAA Tournament Regional, which ended with UF's five-inning 13-3 run-rule beatdown of FIU (3821) on Sunday. All weekend, Florida's brightest star was junior ace Stephanie Brombacher, who gave up only three runs and 11 base runners while pitching every one of the team's 19 innings. "The way she's been pitching the last two games, I gotta give her the ball," coach Tim Walton said of his decision to start Brombacher in her third game in as many days. "She had to have the ball today and she really pitched well." Brombacher was aided by Florida's potent offense, which averaged more than eight runs per game on the weekend and twice gave Brombacher a lead before she ever took the field. The Gators' quick-strike ability was never more apparent than on Sunday, when the team scored five runs on one hit in the top of the first thanks to a grand slam by freshman Brittany Schutte. "(The run support) just lets me go out there and make my pitches and lets my SEE SOFTBALL, PAGE 19 UF BASEBALL Adams ends long slump By ANTHONY CHIANG Alligator Staff Writer achiang@alligatororg Josh Adams began the regular season with a bang and ended it with one, too. But he has not enjoyed that same success in between. The junior second baseman hit two home runs in the season opener, and tallied four RBIs in the last two games of the Gators' schedule Friday and Saturday. Adams hit 9 for 12 in those three contests. However, he still came into last weekend's monumental series against South Carolina hitting just .221. "(Slumps are) not easy. You just go out there and keep playing because you know everybody goes through it," Adams said. But by the time that series came to an end, his average had shot up 16 points as Adams helped the Gators take two of three from the Gamecocks to clinch the No. 1 seed in the Southeastern Conference Tournament. No. 4 Florida (40-13, 22-8 SEC) will face LSU (36-20, 14-16 SEC) in the first round of the tourney Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. in Hoover, Ala. His numbers from the weekend could have been even better if South Carolina right fielder Whit Merrifield hadn't stuck his glove over the fence and stolen an opposite-field homer away from Adams Sunday. But the fact he has been staying Adams back and taking the ball the other way is a good sign for the Gators. "(Hitting the ball to opposite field has) been my approach ever since I got here. I kind of strayed away from that in the beginning of the season," he said.

TEEING OFF WITH ANTHONY CHIANG E As expected, Brett Favre underwent ankle surgery Friday. The procedure only requires a four-to-six-week rehab period. It's nice to see Favre won't be able to use that as an excuse to miss training camp .I don't know what was worse in Sunday's game -Craig Sager's all-pink suit or watching Steve Nash try to snap his nose back into place. Age ain't nothin Kevin O'Sullivan is the R. Kelly of college baseball coaches. Like the freakin'-weekend-loving R&B sensation, Florida's coach does not worry about age when choosing among his stable of talent. Look at UF's catcher, shortstop and third baseman. Look at two-thirds of the starting rotation. Look at the DH. All freshmen. Playing for a top-5 program, these firstyear players have faced essentially the same questions over and over. Is it possible to have an immediate impact in the Southeastern Conference? What do you think it will be like to play in your first SEC series? How big of a help has (insert upperclassman's name here) been? The answers, like the questions, are consistent. "I'm just here to work hard." "Playing in the SEC is going to be tough." "The older guys have been incredibly helpful." Bull. Freshmen don't need that much help.

Hitting two home runs in the season opener turned out to be a negative. Adams said the early power surge made him go away from his original approach at the plate. However, he is starting to show flashes from his days as a two-time member of the All-SEC team. The right-handed batter sprayed four of his six hits to right field against South Carolina. His recent success has not come without a price, though. "He's been working awfully hard. He came down for early batting practice (Friday) and (Saturday)," coach Kevin O'Sullivan said. "He left the hotel at lunch time with a couple other guys and he's been putting in the work." But with the postseason looming, he is reaping the benefits at the right time. "It feels good," Adams said. "Confidence comes in many ways and I definitely needed it It's definitely a good time for me to start swinging." UF second baseman Josh Adams was hitting .221 before going 6 for 13 in the teams' SEC-clinching series against South Carolina. TYLER, from page 17 the top-10 in singles competition. Midfielder Erika Tymrak played in the U-17 Women's World Cup in New Zealand. She adjusted to the SEC easily, finishing her freshman campaign third on the team in points scored while displaying the best touch. And yet, people are still surprised each time this happens. How are you doing this? This is the SEC! A paradox exists in college sports. We fans, coaches, the media -anoint every bluechip prospect as the team's savior, until he or she arrives on campus. Just ask Bob Knight, who compared every newcomer to a young Isiah Thomas, then convinced himself those same recruits couldn't even dribble a basketball once they became Hoosiers. But if a player like Maddox is considered the gem of the No. 1 recruiting class in the nation, we should be ready for him to lead the team in slugging. A freshman's success can also be surprising because the newcomer himself lowers expectations. Players like Maddox are trained by the UF media relations team to feign open-eyed wonder, for good reason. The truth -that freshmen are recruited to put points on the board immediately -currently comes across as brash. But if people realized how experienced first-year players really are, the truth would not lead to unfairly negative comparisons to R. Kelly, who in 2007 said: "I'm the Ali of today. I'm the Marvin Gaye of today. I'm the Bob Marley of today. I'm the Martin Luther King." Gators hit record 100th home run SOFTBALL, from page 17 defense work," Brombacher said of her team jumping out to the early lead. "It kinda takes a little bit of weight off of my shoulders." The Golden Panthers scored two in the bottom of the first to cut the Gators' lead to three, but that was as close as they would get as senior Corrie Brooks pushed the lead back to five in the third with a tworun home run to left. The round-tripper was Brooks' ninth of the season and the team's record-high 100th on the year. "It's just about the way we practice and the way we mentally approach hitting one through nine," Walton said. "When your eight-hole hitter hits a 270-foot home run and does it regularly, it's like Brittany Schutte said, you just feed off of each other and Softball keep on building momentum and that's how we're able to hit so many." Two of the weekend's long balls came from junior Kelsey Bruder, who was without question Florida's top offensive performer. The right fielder, who moved up three spots to third in the lineup due to some favorable pitching matchups, went 6 for 10 with two home runs and 4 RBIs in the Regional. "I don't feel any different I'm just going out there with the same approach of just get on base," Bruder said after Saturday's 6-0 victory over UCF. "Every time you try to hit a home run it doesn't work out so I'm just thinking single up the middle." Following Sunday's win, Florida will host No. 14 Arizona State for a three-game series in the NCAA Super Regional round of 16, which begins Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and concludes on Sunday. 4

20, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MAY 25, 2010 UF vies for national title 0 THE GATORS WILL PLAY FOR THE NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP TODAY AT 2 P.M. STAFF REPORT When the season began, UF women's tennis coach Roland Thornqvist said he felt like it had been a long time since 2003, the year Florida won its last national title. He might not be referencing 2003 much longer. The No. 3 Gators (29-2) have the opportunity to bring a fifth NCAA Team Championship back to Gainesville when they face No. 8 Stanford (25-1) today at 2 p.m. on ESPNU. The 2003 championship was won in a 4-3 upset against the Cardinal in Gainesville, where the home crowd was a factor. This time, the Gators will not be on their home court when they face Stanford, but the Dan Magill Tennis Complex is hardly foreign to this team. Monday's 4-0 win against No. 2 North Carolina marked UF's seventh win this season in Athens, Ga. Florida's top three singles players all enter the match on a high note. Southeastern Conference Tournament Most Valuable Player Marrit Boonstra continued her strong showing in Athens with a 6-2, 6-2 win over North Carolina's Sophie Grabinski that extended her singles win streak to 17 matches. Her doubles partner, No. 8 Allie Will, put UF in position to clinch with a 6-3, 6-3 win over No. 54 Katrina Tsang at the No. 2 spot. Will enters today's match undefeated in dual-match singles this season with 26 wins. Fellow freshman sensation No. 9 Lauren Embree sent the Gators to the championship match with a 6-2, 1-6, 7-5 defeat of Sanaz Marand. Since a tough three-match losing stretch at the ITA Team Indoor Tournament in February, Embree has strung together a 16-match winning streak heading into the championship match. Embree's strong showing at the No. 1 position this year for Florida helped make her the first freshman to be named the SEC Player of the Year. She was also named the ITA Southeast Region Rookie of the Year. Saturday against Miami, Embree achieved her most impressive win of the season when she upset No. 7 Laura Vallverdu. However, she may face her toughest challenge today when she takes on No. 4 Hillary Barte. In Stanford, the Gators face a traditional power (15 national titles), but a relative unknown in regards to this year. Many fans and experts consider this to be a down year for the Pacific-10 Conference in women's tennis and Stanford did not take part in the ITA Team Indoor Tournament in Madison, Wis. UF faced one Pac-10 opponent at the indoor tournament in February, UCLA, and lost 4-1. More recently, the Gators defeated Washington 4-0 on May 14 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The No. 6 Gators men's tennis team (21-5) will not be taking part in the men's portion of today's championships. No. 12 Georgia, the tournament host, upset UF 4-2 in the round of 16 Friday. Senior Antoine Benneteau and junior Alexandre Lacroix will take part in the NCAA Individual Championships beginning Wednesday in Athens. Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff UF freshman Lauren Embree clinched the semifinal victory over North Carolina to send the Gators to the NCAA Championship against Stanford. UF MEN'S GOLF Gators advance past Regional to NCAA Championships By JAIME MANHEIMER Alligator Writer The Gators enjoyed the luck of the Irish in South Bend, Ind., at the Central Regional this past weekend, and finished high enough to earn a bid for the NCAA Championships. Florida joins first-place Stanford, runner-up FSU, and Duke and LSU who finished in the fourth and fifth spots.

"It was an interesting week of ebbs and flows, but I think we played solid for the most part. We are happy to be advancing to the next round." This is Alexander's 22nd appearance in the NCAA Championships in his 23 years as UF's coach. Florida finished the first day of the Central Regional in second place W 52 Vsee bartender for di -A S Q 2.99 DAILY LUNCH SPECIALS at 279, -1. Freshman Phillip Choi (69,-1) and junior Bank Vongvanij (68, -2) were the standouts for UF on day one. Vongvanij hit 16 straight pars before sinking back to back birdies to Alexander finish the round. "Bank was terrific, and it was a great round for him," Alexander said. "We played solid in spite of a shaky start; the team really turned things around on four and five." The second day of the tournament was suspended due to inclement weather with all five UF golfers scattered between holes 13 to 16. UF finished the day in fourth place with a score of 506, +5. The Gators were a couple shots off the bubble, and were encouraged by Alexander to 'step up and get a good round in'. After strong finishes earlier that day including the holes from the suspended second day, the Gators played well as they posted a oneunder, 279 in the final round and carded a final tournament score of 838, -2. "By far the biggest and best thing was that we were able to finish off the second round as we did. It gave us cushion going into the final round that we didn't have," Alexander said. The The HOUSE
