Hawkins wins; other races will go to run-off

BynCJ PRUNER
and MEREDITH RUTLAND
Alligator Staff Writers - a


After all the votes were tallied and all the
precincts accounted for, one candidate gets
to go back to work as a winner, while four
others have more work to do.
That one, Commissioner Thomas Hawk-
ins, fended off a stiff challenge for his at-
large seat, securing 52.7 percent of the vote
count, locking up another term on the com-
mission.
In the races for Districts 2 and 3, no
candidate received the 50 plus one major-
ity required for a nomination, sending the
respective races into a run-off round to be
held in about four weeks.
In the District 2 race, incumbent Lauren
Poe will face local businessman and politi-
cal newcomer Todd Chase in a run-off. Poe
got 35.1 percent of the votes, and Chase re-
ceived 31.4 percent.
Gainesville In District 3, two
City Elections first-time candidates
will square off in a
run-off as Susan Bot-
tcher garnered 41.9 percent of votes cast to
Rob Zeller's 30.7 percent.
In all, 10,979 votes were cast, which ac-
counts for 14.85 percent of registered voters
in Gainesville. At the Reitz Union precinct,
57 of the 4,471 registered voters cast ballots.
With numerous supporters in attendance
at the Alachua County Supervisor of Elec-
tions, Hawkins, who defeated former mayor
candidate Don Marsh, Richard Selwach and
Jeffrey Fiedler, said that the victory will al-

Jewish reggae musician Matisyahu brings act to UF


By KRISTIN LOPOPOLO
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Phillips Center for the Per-
forming Arts is expected to be at full
capacity tonight for a performance by
Matisyahu.
To celebrate Jewish Awareness
Month, UF Student Government
Productions teamed up with Ac-
cent and the Jewish Student Union
to bring the Jewish reggae musician


to campus.
The artist will get $28,000 for his
act.
The event will consist of the
performer's "insightful words and
acoustic music," said Kyle Calhoun,
the SG Productions music and enter-
tainment chairman.
Matisyahu is known for mixing
Jewish topics with reggae. His first
single, "King Without A Crown,"
ranked No. 28 on the 11:. .:, .1 Hot


"Matisyahu's words bring
peace to the Jewish
community."

Instead of the artist performing
his usual concert-style show, he will
talk to students about recent events


such as the tsunami and perform
some of his hit songs acoustically.
Rabbi Berl Goldman said this
performance is perfect bming, con-
sidering the Israeli family that was
murdered Friday night in Palestine.
He said he cannot wait to hear
the artists positive message about
caring for others.
He said students called him over
the weekend worried because they
believe Jewish hate crimes will occur


throughout the month.
"Matisyahu's words bring peace
to the Jewish .iii'.. i. ir " he said.
Accent's chairman Zack Gold-
stein said the musician is an Ortho-
dox Jew, a denomination which only
10 percent of Jews in the U.S. practice
because it follows strict application
of laws found in the Torah.
At 6 p.m., 1,800 free tickets will be
given out on a first-come-first-serve
basis. The show begins at 8 p.m.

Potty-mouthed prankster messes with electronic road sign in Houston


HOUSTON - A potty-mouthed prank-
ster managed to hack into an electronic sign
in downtown Houston, treating drivers to an
earthier message than their used to seeing.
The unknown prankster changed a tem-
porary traffic sign that said "DETOUR" in
large orange letters to "POOP." The message
was there for most of the weekend.
Then on Monday morning, the sign was
changed to ": ) LOL" before workers man-
aged to change it back to its standard mes-


sage.
The Texas Department of Transportation
wasn't amused. Spokeswoman Raquelle
Lewis told the Houston Chronicle that hack-
ing the onboard computer that controls the
sign is disruptive. It's also punishable by a
fine of up to $500.
In 2009, a prankster in Austin got national
attention by hacking a similar sign to display
the message: "Zombies in area! Run!"

County has initial


budget discussion


By MEREDITH RUTLAND
Alligator Writer

To get the budget season start-
ed, the Alachua County Com-
mission decided Tuesday to ask
County Manager Randall Reid to
create a possible budget for 2012.
Commissioners voted 3-2 to
have the manager create a budget
based on how it has been created
in the past. They will use this bud-
get as a starting point and plan to
adjust it as necessary throughout
the budget-creating process.
Chairman Lee Pinkoson and
Commissioner Susan Baird voted
against the motion.
Pinkoson suggested adjusting
the Supervisor of Elections Of-
fice and Sheriff's Office's budgets
in a different way than other of-


fices since both will require more
money in the next year for the
2012 election and jail services, re-
spectively.
Commissioner Rodney Long
suggested keeping the percent-
ages of what each office gets from
the overall budget the same. In
that scenario, if a department
needs more than the allotted per-
centage, then it could argue its
case to the commis-
Local sion.
News While commis-
sioners may not
agree on the strategy to create the
budget, they acknowledge that
the 2012 budget will be smaller
than previous years.
"The question is, what's the
size of the cut?" Commissioner
Mike Byerly said.


UF RESEARCH

Students overestimate hearing


By ALLISON BANKO
Alligator Writer


When Dr. Colleen Le Prell recruited 21-year-olds
who said they had normal hearing for a research
study, she encountered an oddity.
Some students who showed up for the study
didn't actually have the normal hearing sensitivity
that they thought they did.
Le Prell, a UF associate professor in the depart-
ment of speech, language and hearing sciences and
the study's lead researcher, then conducted a differ-
ent study measuring students' hearing losses and
found that 25 percent of students who believed they
had normal hearing actually did not.
The research focused on 20 males and 37 females
from UF who averaged around 21 years old and re-
ported themselves to have normal hearing.
The participants completed a health survey and a
questionnaire about exposure to loud noises includ-
ing sporting events, music players and concerts and
loud activities such as using lawn equipment or do-
ing construction.
Male students who listened to personal music
players were found to have the highest loss.
Joseph Sparks, a Gainesville audiologist who has
been practicing since 1980, said college freshmen 60
years ago had better hearing than today's freshmen.
"It's a noisier, louder world," Sparks said. "We


have more exposure to sound because we have more
sources of it."
Le Prell's findings concluded that the participants
had hearing loss on a level not enough to require a
hearing aid but enough to affect learning.
"They will have a harder time understanding cer-
tain sounds," Le Prell said. "In order to get the most
information from what the teacher is saying during
lectures, they'll have to make adjustments such as
moving to the front of the classroom."
Kyhlie Rodriguez, a 22-year-old
advertising senior, said she has
trouble with her hearing.
"It wasn't until the later years
that I started realihzmg how often
I was asking people to repeat
things," she said.
Rodriguez said she thinks it
Le Prell has to do with listening to music.
"I use the headphones that go
deep into your ears, and I listen to my music on full
blast," she said. "Now I can't listen to anything un-
less it's on full blast."
Le Prell said that students should take preventa-
tive measures to protect their hearing such as turn-
ing down their music as well as wearing earplugs in
particularly loud places.
"The sad reality is once hearing is gone, it doesn't
back," Le Prell said.

Supporters introduce Libya no-fly resolution at UN


* THE MOVE IS AIMED AT STOPPING
THE BOMBING OF PROTESTERS.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

UNITED NATIONS - Supporters of a no-
fly zone over Libya introduced a U.N. reso-
lution Tuesday aimed at stopping Moammar
Gadhafi's planes from bombing civilians,
with France urging quick action but Russia
and Germany expressing misgivings.
Divisions over a no-fly zone that emerged
among top diplomats from the Group of
Eight leading economies meeting in Paris
earlier Tuesday were already spilling into
negotiations in the 15-member U.N. Secu-
rity Council, which includes many G-8 mem-
bers.
Britain's U.N. Ambassador Mark Lyall
Grant said council members will discuss the
proposed resolution "paragraph by para-
graph" when they meet again Wednesday
morning. Members had "a number of ques-
tions about the text, and everyone agreed
they would send it back to capitals over-
night," he said.
Chinese Ambassador Li Baodong said is-
sues to be clarified include whether the ban
would apply to all flights countrywide. In-
dian Ambassador Hardeep Singh Pun said
he and other members need to know what
countries would contribute the assets for en-
forcing a no-fly zone.


Lebanon, the Security Council's only Arab
member, introduced the no-fly provisions of
the draft resolution - strongly endorsed by
the Arab League - to council members at a
closed meeting Tuesday afternoon. The Ar-
abs are strongly backed by France and Brit-
am, which drafted elements of a no-fly reso-
lution last week.
"We are deeply distressed by the fact that
things are worsening on the ground, that the
Gadhafi forces are moving forward extreme-
ly quickly, and that this council has not yet
reacted," France's U.N. Ambassador Gerard
Araud told reporters as he headed into the
council meeting. "In the coming days we
want a resolution ... and we will do our ut-
most to get it."
France and Britain failed to win support
for a no-fly zone during the two-day meeting
of G-8 foreign ministers and the group's final
communique did not mention a flight ban. It
instead warned of unspecified "dire conse-
quences" if Gadhafi did not honor the Liby-
an people's claim to basic rights, freedom of
expression, and representative government.
The halting efforts to raise pressure
against Gadhafi's 42-year regime came as
his forces used tanks, warships and artillery
Tuesday to gain ground near the rebels' base
in eastern Libya.
The G-8 ministers agreed the Security
Council needs to take more action to pres-
sure Gadhafi to leave, possibly with new
sanctions, but not military action.


In New York, Lebanon's U.N. Ambas-
sador Nawaf Salam said the section on the
no-fly zone was drafted in consultation with
Libya's U.N. Mission, which backs anti-Gad-
hafi forces. Salam said another section on"the
strengthening and widening of sanctions" on
Libya was introduced by Lyall Grant.
The Arab League called Saturday on the
U.N. "to shoulder its responsibility ... to im-
pose a no-fly zone over the movement of Lib-
yan military planes and to create safe zones
in the places vulnerable to airstrikes."
Salam said Lebanon has asked Libya's
U.N. Mission to identify
specific areas where ci-
International vilians would need pro-
News tection and safe passage
corridors.
The Security Council on Feb. 26 imposed
an arms embargo on Libya and ordered all
countries to freeze assets and ban travel for
Gadhafi and some close associates. It also
referred the regime's deadly crackdown
on protesters to the International Criminal
Court, for an investigation of possible crimes
against humanity.
U.N. diplomats said the proposed new
resolution would call for more muscular en-
forcement of the arms embargo, add names
of individuals, companies and other entities
to the list of those subject to travel bans and
asset freezes, and ban commercial flights
bringing arms or mercenaries into Libya.
The draft resolution would also authorize


states to work together to provide humanitar-
ian assistance and take necessary measures
to protect civilians. It also would establish a
panel of experts to monitor implementation,
the diplomats said, speaking on condition of
anonymity because the text has not been re-
leased.
Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov
said at the G-8 that his country wants more
details and clarity from the Arab League
about its proposals for Libya before approv-
ing any military intervention.
Amr Moussa, the Arab League's secre-
tary-general, at the Paris meeting that a no-
fly zone would be humanitarian measure to
protect Libyan civilians and foreigners in the
country - not a military intervention.
But German Foreign Minister Guido West-
I.. . I..- said his country was "very skeptical"
about military action. "We do not want to get
sucked into a war in North Africa," he said.
"We want to avoid any slippery slope in this
direction."
Lebanon's Salam insisted that a no-fly
zone "in no way could qualify as a foreign
intervention."
"I would hope that the establishment of a
no-fly zone would have a deterrent effect on
the Gadhafi regime, not to fly its airplanes to
attack civilian areas," he said.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton,
who on Monday met with her counterparts
and Sarkozy, traveled to Egypt for talks Tues-
day and did not attend the G-8 meeting.

"It's sort of d]6j vu all over
again," he said.
Chase, who spent result
night at Beef 0' Brady's, sur-
rounded by family, friends
and TVs showing a Gators
:,.i.::,I game, said he feels
excited about the results.
"I think that clearly the
people in District 2 are look-
ing for something different,"
he said. "I think my message
was well-received."
James Ingle, who earned
10.9 percent of the votes in
District 2, expressed his disap-
pointment but said he thinks
he ran a good campaign.
"For a first time out, I don't
think that we were embar-
rassed," he said.
He said if he had to do it
over, he would have started
campaigning sooner. He
thought the public could use
a break after the November
midterm elections, so he be-
gan campaigning in January.
"By then, I think there was
a head start by the other peo-
ple I was up against," he said.

between her and Zeller rep-
resents a contrast in perspec-
tive on how the city is faring.
Throughout the campaign,
Zeller took many shots at the
efficiency of city government
in the wake of an economic
downturn.
Bottcher, however, views
the city's actions from a differ-
ent perspective, choosing to
highlight progress made.


"I'm a glass-half-full kind
of person ... I think Gainesville
has come a long way," she
said.
In an interview at his post-
election celebration at Gator
City, Zeller said the outcome
indicates that Gainesville resi-
dents are looking for some-
thing new in city government.
While he acknowledged
that he disagreed with the
city commission on a lot of is-
sues, he said if he is elected,
his business experience would
help improve the political pro-
cess.
"We disagree on a lot of
things, but I think we can get
some work done," he said.
The key to the run-off elec-
tion, candidates from the two
races said, will lie in who can
court the votes of the third-
place candidate who will not
move on.
In District 2, Robert Krames
earned 22.6 percent of the
votes, and James Ingle earned
10.9 percent.
Chase said he feels confi-
dent that Krames' supporters
will vote for him because they
have similar viewpoints.
"I think that the people
who voted for Robert are go-
ing to be interested in looking
at my campaign," Chase said.
The District 3 race, howev-
er, doesn't seem so clear cut.
UF professor Jimmy Harns-
berger earned 24.4 percent of
the vote, which is not enough
to send him into the next round
but enough to make his votes
pivotal in such a contest.


Just who will get those
votes is anyone's guess. Both
Bottcher and Zeller believe
their platforms will be attrac-
tive to Harnsberger voters in a
run-off.
Each side has a legitimate
argument. Both Bottcher and
Harnsberger are registered
Democrats, but Harnsberger,
throughout his campaign,
used phrases such as "budget
cuts" and "fiscal responsibil-
ity," things Zeller emphasized
as well.

State set


to vote on


teacher


merit pay
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TALLAHASSEE - Republican-
sponsored legislation setting up a
merit pay plan for teachers and end-
ing tenure for new hires is set for a
final vote in the GOP-controlled
Florida House on Wednesday - 11
months after former Gov. Charlie
Crist vetoed a similar bill.
The new version is designed
to mirror Florida's plan for a $700
million federal Race to the Top edu-
cation grant that includes a move
to merit pay. Opponents, though,
say it goes beyond that blue print
by chipping away at teachers' due
process and collective bargaining
rights.
In floor action Wednesday, the
House rejected four Democratic
amendments that would have ad-
dressed some of those issues in the
Senate-passed bill.
The House sponsor, Rep. Erik
Fresen, R-Miami, declared them to
be "uith . ,._1l, ' to the bill's intent.
"The purpose of crafting this
bill is actually to have an ability to
determine what a good teacher is,"
Fresen said. "That's it."
The legislation would require
school districts to develop evalu-
ation schemes based half on how
much improvement each teacher's
students have shown
State on the Florida Com-
News prehensive Assess-
ment Test (FCAT)
or other exams over a three-year
period. The other half would be
based on such factors as evaluations
by principals. They could include
advanced degrees but only if in a
teacher's subject area.
Those evaluations would be used
to determine which teachers should
get merit pay and which should be
let go.
If passed by the House as ex-
pected, the bill would go to Repub-
lican Gov. Rick Scott, who has made
it one of his top priorities. Crist, a
Republican-turned-independent,
vetoed last year's bill after wide-
spread protests by teachers, parents
and students as well as objections
from many local school officials.
Teachers hired after July 1 would
never be able to get more than a one-
year contract.
The defeated amendments in-
cluded one offered by Rep. Reg-
gie .,11I ..... -, D-Jacksonville, that
would have required school officials
to give terminated teachers written
reasons why they didn't get another
annual contract.
"It's about dJ._.....: " F.,II .....J
said. "For your contract not to be re-
newed at least tell me why."
Another failed amendment
would have allowed highly rated
teachers to get three-year contracts.
Existing teachers would have the
option of sticking with their present
salary plan or competing for merit
pay.

Editorial

Noah's Ark II

Beck's interpretation

of disasters is bizarre
Excuse us if we seem confused. We're trying to come
to grips with the strange feeling of dela vu.
It's not merely that Glenn Beck has once again
spewed his drivel, it's his subject and reasoning that sent
us reeling. His comments on the Japanese earthquake,
which urged people to heed the disaster as a message from
God, recall those made by Pat Robertson in the wake of
the earthquake in Haiti more than a year ago. Beck didn't
denounce the Japanese for voodoo or pacts with the devil,
of course, but he did advise people to follow the biblical
Ten Commandments lest they do something to anger God
into taking action.
The two are rffing off the same idea: They're interpret-
ing natural disasters as divine punishment for areas full of
supposed sinners.
Let's think carefully about this. If a divine being is send-
ing earthquakes and tsunamis to people with track records
of sin, what wouldn't be flooded out? What would we have
left? Hold on, Glenn, we need to grab our inner tube to
prepare for the deluge. A better message to take from the
tragedy is the strength of the human will. Or understand-
ing the helplessness of mankind in the face of something
so massive and uncontrollable. But that's a humility lost
on people who need to lower their heaven-pointed noses
and drop the holier-than-thou attitude in order to feel and
act like what they are - human.



Watching What You Say


It's common knowledge
that when someone says
something like, "No of-
fense, but..." he or she is
about to contradict him or
herself. After watching a
YouTube video making the
rounds this week, we're be-
ginning to see those phrases
as red flags. We're talking
about the video University
of California - Los Angeles
student Alexandra Wallace
posted disparaging Asians
she saw talking on phones in
the school library.
In an instantly connected
world, it's more difficult to
consider the plethora of con-
sequences that result from
posting racist caricatures.
Once something's on the In-
ternet, it has a life of its own
- especially if the topic is
incendiary and the creator
easily identifiable. Most of
us understand this concept
on at least a visceral level,
but let's take it a step farther.


The fallout from this wom-
an's rant did not only affect
her and the people she was
railing against. She was act-
ing as a representative of her
university to the people who
viewed her video without a
previous UCLA experience.
It's bad enough to wreck
her standing in society, but
Wallace's actions reflected
poorly upon all American
college students. After all,
how could she get accepted
into a prestigious school and
advance this far in her edu-
cation without considering
her rant reprehensible?
It boils down to what our
mothers told us. No, not, "If
you don't have anything nice
to say, don't say anything at
all." Sometimes you need to
call someone out, and talk-
ing in the library might be
one of those cases. We just
ask that people think before
they speak, especially when
they're speaking for others.

People too obsessed with idea of time


ime is a pretty interesting thing. Daylight saving
time? More like nightlife-losing time. Correct me
if I'm wrong, but we can all thank Ben Franklin
for its invention.
Among other reasons, it was thought that daylight
saving time helped people by shifting an hour of day-
light in the morning to the evening to help with energy
consumption and to keep an hour of morning sunlight
from going by lamented as we curse the sun's earlier
arrival on summer mornings.
Some college students ought to be particularly fond
of this reasoning then: I can't tell you how many stu-
dents I've seen that almost entirely block their windows
with blankets or towels to keep the sunlight out of their
room year-round. A lot of them are on such disturbing
sleep schedules (here's a nod to you, architects-in-train-
ing) it's a wonder daylight saving time means anything
more than a small creep in deadlines lurching forward
by one hour.
Spring forward, fall back.
I hope everyone realizes that the notion of even
saying that one man - even as mythical as Ben is -
somehow invented an extra hour is a little silly. It is the
construct, the observance, that was put into practice.
Certain common observances such as this are often de-
creed by governments or made common through reli-
gion. Look to Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Christmas
for examples. It is interesting that time holds such sway
over us that we all willingly accept this somewhat-
whimsical change on our clocks to magically teleport
the sun around when we choose. The numbers on a face
or digital screen are the whistles to our Pavlovian drool-
ing, and if the clock says it's time to wake up, guess
what we're going to do? We hit the snooze button: It


Wesley Campbell is much too early to get out of
letters@alligatororg bed and start hopping around.
If only someone could shift our
waking hour to a little bit later
in the day.
And now we're back where we started. Everything is
relative. I think that all of us put too much emphasis on
the time of our lives. Yes, as a tool, time is very useful:
It helps you plan meetings and meet deadlines. Doesn't
that sound fun? It also helps you coordinate events and
share common schedules so we can all see each other's
pretty faces at the same time every day. But do keep in
mind that those numbers cracking the whip over your
deadline, be it for an essay, an exam or an opinion piece
for a newspaper, though important, are really just sig-
nifiers of every present occurrence's relativity to every-
thing else.
Look at a river: Most people say the river starts as
a stream in the mountains, becomes the mighty flow
that passes before them and finally becomes the tribu-
tary meeting the ocean. People liken this to their lives
- young in the mountains, old in the ocean. The fact
is, all of those instances of the river are happening si-
multaneously, all the time. There is no young you and
old you: The only reality of your younger years is your
memory of them, and the same goes for your prediction
of old age. No matter how thin you slice it, your pres-
ent, right now, is the only reality. Sun will rise; get used
to it. Change your clock; change your thinking.
Too bad we can't shift age around like we do daylight
saving time: In this town, suddenly being teleported to
the age of 21 would not go unappreciated.

Foreign oil cripples US


Why would a country that
calls itself a world super-
power willingly place it-
self at the mercy of foreign govern-
ments? Especially when that same
government has the capabilities to
lessen its dependence of foreign en-
tities and strengthen its economy?
The revolutions occurring in the
Middle East are threatening Amer-
ica's already weakened economy.
Egypt fell, Libya is next and ifs only
a matter of time until surrounding
countries follow the same pattern.
The instability threatens our abil-
ity to receive the resource so critical
to our lives - oil.
Because of the uprisings, oil com-
panies in the Middle East are pro-
ducing at a significantly lower rate.
Less supply means higher prices.
Experts are predicting $5 per
gallon gas prices. These prices will
cripple us and an economy that is
just getting back on its feet.
If we rely on shaky countries to
supply us with our oil, America will
have no choice but to enter into an-
other war we can not afford.
We have a stable government.


Becca Kitchen If we began
UWire producing
our own sup-
ply of oil, we
would no longer have the possibility
of our economy being affected be-
cause of politics in the Middle East.
I think that alternative forms of
I,._ - - _ like solar and natural gas can
benefit our society, but realistically,
there is no way we will be free from
oil. We need it, and America has it.
There is a massive oil deposit
that covers North Dakota and por-
tions of South Dakota and Montana.
This oil isn't the traditional crude oil
we are used to. It is shale oil, but can
be processed into lower-grade oil
suited for cars.
This process is laborious and ex-
pensive, but I would rather spend
the money here to produce the oil
than send money overseas.
America sends hundreds of bil-
lions of dollars overseas every year
because of oil. Imagine how stable
our economy could become if we
drilled here.

University of Nevada.

Dashiell, Hillier dominate midfield in Gators rout


By JOHN BOOTHE
Alligator Writer

A day after cracking the top 10
for the first time in team history,
the No. 10 Gators played like they
deserved it with an 18-6 win over
visiting Colgate.
Florida (7-1) used the hot stick
of Brittany Dashiell to come alive
following a stagnant opening 10
minutes Tuesday. After falling
behind the Raiders 1-0, Dashiell
scored three of the Gators' first
six goals and also contributed a
first-half assist.
"This was probably one of
Brittany's best games she's ever
played as a Florida Gator," coach
Amanda O'Leary said.
Dashiell was complemented
by fellow midfielder Janine Hilli-
er, who dominated in open space,
weaving through traffic and past
Colgate (3-4) defenders.
"Toward the second half of
the game, they started pressur-
ing us more," Dashiell said. "We
just moved the ball quickly so
they would be running more and
we could tire them out and then
drive to goal."
The Gators extended their
four-goal halftime lead with a
10-1 run to start the second pe-
riod, culminating with Dashiell's


career-high fifth goal while Hilli-
er chipped in three of her own.
O'Leary said her midfielders


were effective against the Raid-
ers because they were quicker
and able to get in one-one-one


situations.
"It helps to have a team with a
little bit of speed," O'Leary said.


Max Keed / Alliga
UF midfielder Brittany Dashiell passes the ball during the Gators' 18-6 victory against Colgate on
Tuesday in Dizney Stadium. Dashiell contributed an assist and a career-high five goals.


"You have Haydon [Judge] who
can run, and Jamie [Reeg] who
has a great stick and Janine just
has the combination of both."
After working hard to get the
ball up the field in transition, Hill-
ier was relieved to see Florida's
attackers, Kitty Cullen and Ash-
ley Bruns, finish what she and the
midfielders started. Cullen and
Bruns combined for seven goals
on thirteen shots, allowing those
who started the break to rest after
sprinting 40-plus yards.
"Brittany and Janine are our
middies, they run up and down
the field the whole game, playing
offense and defense," O'Leary
said. "They are just the big-time
glue players for us, holding us
together."
With six minutes left, the
Gators were able to clear the
bench for the second straight
game, something O'Leary and
Hillier were pleased to see before
Florida plays No. 11 Syracuse
and then starts conference games
a week later.
"We're just moving forward
and taking it day by day, but we
wouldn't be as far as we are right
now without those practice play-
ers who just go hard at practice,
so everyone's accountable," Hill-
ier said.


Florida's powerful offense keyed by four star players


UF has scored 221 runs through 26 games this season


By STEPHEN SHEEHAN
Alligator Writer

When it comes to offense, UF coach Tim
Walton lives by the motto, "If it ain't broke,
don't fix it."
When the No. 2 Gators (25-1, 2-0 SEC)
are outscoring opponents 221-25, some-
thing is going right.

ulba, Kelsey Bruder, Brittany Schutte and


for 34 of the team's 49 home runs.
Bruder, who ranks fifth on the team with
a .351 average, has hit six homers out of the
No. 3 spot in the lineup.
Although many of her hard-hit balls
have been right at fielders, she remains a
key cog in the middle of the order.
"It's our job as the heart of the lineup
to produce almost all of the runs," Bruder
said. "We've produced sac flies or a single

"Schutte is feared by other teams," Wal-

game and say, 'She's such a tough out.' She
can turn it around in a heartbeat with one
swing of the bat."

had to do the same.
"It's more difficult this year because
they know me better, so I'm limited on the
pitches I get," she said. "They're definitely
trying to get strikes that are off the plate."
But with No. 5 hitter Megan Bush lead-
ing the team with 11 homers and 38 RBIs,
opposing pitchers can hardly afford to
pitch around Schutte.
"When you're in the 3-, 4-, 5-spot, teams
label you as the big hitters and want to be
more careful," Bruder said. "We feed off
each other. When Brittany's hitting good,
they won't pitch to her, so they try to pitch

UF's win important for many reasons


The Gators received mountains of
hype and accolades before they even
played an inning this season.
Fifteen games into its schedule, No. 1
Florida had yet to prove it is deserving of
the attention.
But on Tuesday, the Gators showed why
they were atop the rankings.
Thanks to a pretty soft schedule to start
the season, UF's record looked like that of
a No. 1 team.
However, midweek losses to FSU and
Georgia Southern indicated otherwise.
On, Tuesday, though, Florida finally
broke through.
And, who knew, all it took was one
swing from Daniel Pigott.
With the win, the Gators ended the Sem-
moles' four-game winning streak in the
rivalry and extinguished any doubts that
would have come along with three mid-
week losses to start the season.
The importance of the victory didn't go
unnoticed by coach Kevin O'Sullivan.
"Personally, I'm worn out," he said. "I

* FLORIDA HELD ITS ANNU-
AL PRO DAY IN THE SWAMP
ON TUESDAY.

By GREG LUCA
Alligator Staff Writer
gluca@alligatororg

While NFL players and owners
struggle to reach a new collective
bargaining agreement, a number of
departing Gators continue to pre-
pare for a future that may be put
on hold.
As Florida held its annual Pro
Day in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on
Tuesday, the participating players
understood the career they're train-
ing for may not be available to them
next year.
"It's bad timing, man," senior
center Mike Pouncey said. "You
want to fulfill all of your dreams,
and playing in the NFL is one of my
biggest dreams."
Perhaps none of UF's NFL Draft
hopefuls will be as deeply affected
by the lockout as junior safety Will
Hill, who chose to leave school ear-
ly despite the uncertainty.
Hill cited the need to provide for
his wife and three children as the
primary reason he declared, but the
NFL owners' recent decision to lock
out the players would prevent him
from signing a contract and profit-


ing from his jump to the pros.
Although he suggested he could
get a job, finish his anthropology
degree or continue training in Boca
Raton, Hill is hopeful the labor situ-
ation will be resolved before next
season if there is a work stoppage.
"I don't think this country will
let it go without - .. rl: :.1, because
basically everybody loves -...r : II,"
Hill said. "They will come to an
agreement, and eventually they will
have a season. And then it's time to
play ball."
Many of Hill's teammates shared
his optimism but formed contin-
gency plans all the same.
Senior offensive lineman Mar-
cus Gilbert said he would contact
some of the veterans from which-
ever team selects him to prepare for
the eventual jump, while Pouncey
and senior safety Ahmad Black said
they would continue workouts in
Gainesville.
Duke Lemmens, a senior defen-
sive end with one semester left until
he graduates with a degree in event
management, said he would even
consider planning a few weddings.
"Easter theme, I could wear my
light green pimp suit," Lemmens
said. "We'll see."
Players like Lemmens, who
could potentially go undrafted, are
even more harshly affected than the

Despite a familiar foe once again
plaguing Florida in its most recent

a record crowd of 5,930 at McKethan

In a wacky game that included over-

highly rated prospects.
Undrafted players cannot speak to teams
or sign free-agent contracts until a new col-
lective bargaining agreement is in place.
This leaves them in limbo, unsure whether
they should hold out hope for the NFL or
move on with their lives.
"It's unfortunate," Lemmens said. "May-
be I'll sneak into a late round and not have to
worry about it. If I have to be a free agent, I'll
just keep waiting for a phone call."


Each Gator's fate hinges on the ability
of the NFL owners and players to reach an
accord as to how the league's revenue -
which totaled $9 billion last season - will
be split.
"I'm sure (the owners) will take a little
bit of a pay cut," Black said. "At the end of
the day, they own the team, but I don't think
they played a down. I'm sure kids don't go
to the store and say, 'I want the owner's jer-
sey.
"I'm not going to take shots at the owners
or anything like that. I'm sure they'll come to
an agreement."

through, like he has much of the sea-
son, with game-tying and game-win-
ning hits.
"For me it was (a sense of relief),"
O'Sullivan said. "It's a rival game
and one that we can't let slip away.
You got all of these opportunities
and we left, I think, 13 guys stranded.
At some point, you've got to cash in
against good teams."
A loss to the Seminoles would have
sent the Gators into their Southeast-
ern Conference schedule reeling - a
place they don't want to be in head-
ing into Baton Rouge, La., to play No.
8 LSU this weekend.
But it's funny how sports work.
Take away Pigott's effort and the
Gators lose a fifth consecutive game
to the Seminoles.


Florida would have likely lost its
No.1 ranking and doubt would have
filled the minds of most of the play-
ers.
However, just one hit from Pigott
changed all of that. All of a sudden,
things are looking up heading into
conference play.
"I think [the win] helps a lot, to be
quite honest with you," O'Sullivan
said. "I don't know if it's going to
have any outcome on how we play
this weekend, but I know going into
it I feel a lot better.
"You get beat by your rival four
games in a row, you start feeling like
you got to get one, start breaking a
trend. I thought this was a big win for
us, a really big win."
Momentum is always swinging
back and forth, but the Gators have it
on their side now.
They can thank Pigott for that.


Larson creates opportunity for comeback with strong relief outing


BASEBALL, from page 14

against good teams."
Similar to its recent previous losses against
FSU (15-2), Florida was in an early hole thanks
to a poor start by Alex Panteliodis.
The lefty fought constant pressure during
his brief outing, failing to get out the leadoff
hitter in every inning. Panteliodis tossed a
26-pitch first inning but escaped a bases-load-
ed jam with deep flyout to center field.
However, in the third inning, Florida State
put up a four spot with a couple of bombs.
1.. i..' a two-run shot to right and
opposite-field double to left, Panteliodis was
pulled after just 2.1 innings, :II.. three
runs on five hits.
Greg Larson entered and struck out the
first batter he faced before FSU's Justin Gonza-
lez crushed a two-run homer over the left-field
bleachers.
But the game turned after Larson settled
down. Despite giving up the bomb to Gonza-
lez, Larson pitched well in relief, throwing 3.2
innings and retiring the last eight batters in a
row.
"The key to it was Larson settling things
down," O'Sullivan said. "After the two-run
homer, he put three zeros on the board."
The Gators chipped away with runs in the
third and fourth, but they continually wasted
valuable chances, struggled with breaking
balls and off-speed pitches and consistently


swung out in front of changeups and curve-
balls.
UF threatened in the fifth, but FSU right
fielder James Ramsey, who also hit one of the
two homers in the third, made a diving catch
to save extra bases and end the scoring oppor-
tunity.
In the seventh, Mike Zunino hit a come-
backer to the Seminoles sidearmer Daniel Ben-
nett, stranding three runners on base.
"You could feel the frustration in the dug-
out," O'Sullivan said.
The game got testy in the eighth when
O'Sullivan contested vehemently to the um-
pire's inconsistent strike zone. One batter lat-
er, Nick Maronde drilled FSU's Stuart Tapley,
who objected, nearly causing a brawl. UF as-
sistant coach Brad Weitzel was ejected, then
somehow was allowed to stay in the game.
But the Gators escaped further damage
and captured the momentum when Preston
Tucker gunned out a runner at the plate.
In the bottom half of the frame, Pigott
smashed a single into center, tying the game
and sending the raucous crowd into a frenzy.
Two innings and a combined 15 pitch-
ers later, Pigott won the game for the Gators
with a knock off the Seminoles' hard-throwing
closer.
"I knew [McGee] was going to give me a
hard time up there, but you just have to go up

better than the other guy and you're going to

UF FOOTBALL

Weis' move to Florida motivated by family needs


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@allgator org

. .11.. .., Florida coach Will
Muschamp at the podium Monday
afternoon, Charlie Weis appeared
to have all the intensity of a Sunday
drive.
Weis cracked self-deprecating
jokes, gave a reporter a pop quiz and
made light of past missteps in his
first press conference as the Gators'
offensive coordinator. He even re-
ferred to Tom Brady as "T .iii "
explaining that is what friends call
the three-time Super Bowl cham-
pion quarterback.
Perhaps the most intriguing as-
pect of UF's coaching change as the
team begins spring practice today is
the transition to a pro-style offense.
But after one year running the Kan-
sas City Chiefs' offense and five as
the highly scrutinized head coach
at Notre Dame, the pressure is off
Weis in his new role.
"This is Coach Muschamp's of-
fense, not Charlie Weis' offense.
This is the University of Florida, this
is not Charlie Weis' offense," Weis
said. "I'm just trying to get us back
to winning on a regular basis, and I
think we all want the same thing."
Making the move back to the col-
lege game wasn't a difficult decision
for Weis, who was primarily moti-
vated by his family. He left Kansas
City for Gainesville to suit his wife,
Maura; daughter, Hannah; and son,
Charlie Jr.
His son will be a freshman at
UF this fall and hopes to pursue a
coaching career, which will begin
as a student assistant for the Gators.
Maura is what Weis called "a horse
person," so the family will fittingly
buy a home in Ocala.
But Hannah, a 15-year-old with
special needs, may have had the
biggest influence in Weis' decision


after a rocky adjustment to Kansas
City.
"I had decided during this foot-
ball season that we had to bring
Hannah back to South Bend some-
time late spring to get her back into
her normal comfort zone," Weis
said. "She had a really rough year.
Sometimes when you move, you
forget about things that are really
important in life.
"The fact that I can take care of
my wife and my daughter and my
son and kind of mesh everything
together, it's really as simple an an-


swer as that one."
Although there were plenty of
personal benefits in accepting Mus-
champ's offer, the Gators will likely
reap the greatest rewards from the
move.
The four-time Super Bowl cham-
pion brings a lengthy resume, a
great deal of offensive expertise and
an impressive presence on the re-
cruiting trail - all of which Florida
greatly needs after a disappointing
2010 season.
"Part of buying in is instant
credibility, and he brings instant


credibility as a -...-rl: :II coach be-
cause of what he's accomplished,"
Muschamp said. "Our players un-
derstand what he's talking about is
good and it works, and it's worked
before, and it will work again, and it
will work for us this year."
Weis said he plans to use the
spring practice season as a chance
to mentally and physically chal-
lenge the Gators to see if they can
handle the new offensive scheme,
but he knows he is inheriting a ros-
ter full of players recruited to run
the spread.


iviat Iripp / mingator sitan
New Florida offensive coordinator Charlie Weis will bring a pro-style philosophy to the Gators this sea-
son. He will get his first chance to work hands-on with the team when UF opens spring practices today.


UF's offense will involve more
under-center, pro-style packages,
but Weis said his philosophy is
equally predicated on formations
and personnel.
"It all depends on what you have
and who you have. That's what
you do, and that's yet to be deter-
mined," Weis said. "I have not seen
these guys put a :- ...l:i: in their
hands yet.
"But I can tell you this: We've
got a bunch of guys that can run.
I've seen that in the time I've been
here. I think [Jeff Demps'] 6.53 60
meters, I might be able to figure out
something to do with him."
Weis also thinks he can make
use of quarterback John Brantley,
a more natural fit for Weis' offense
than Urban Meyer's. Brantley isn't
guaranteed a starting spot, Weis
said, but he has the experience and
ability to thrive in the Gators' new
system.
"He's not super athletic, but
then, Tommy Brady was not super
athletic," Weis said. "I'm not com-
paring John Brantley to Tommy
Brady, but just because somebody
says you're not super athletic does
not mean you can't be a front-line
quarterback."
Weis recruited Brantley while
he was at Notre Dame and admit-

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 By MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Writer To get the budget season started, the Alachua County Commission decided Tuesday to ask County Manager Randall Reid to create a possible budget for 2012. Commissioners voted 3-2 to have the manager create a budget based on how it has been created in the past. They will use this budget as a starting point and plan to adjust it as necessary throughout the budget-creating process. Chairman Lee Pinkoson and Commissioner Susan Baird voted against the motion. Pinkoson suggested adjusting the Supervisor of Elections Ofin a different way than other ofmoney in the next year for the 2012 election and jail services, respectively. Commissioner Rodney Long suggested keeping the percentthe overall budget the same. In that scenario, if a department needs more than the allotted per centage, then it could argue its case to the commission. While commissioners may not agree on the strategy to create the budget, they acknowledge that the 2012 budget will be smaller than previous years. size of the cut?” Commissioner Mike Byerly said.

“It’s sort of dj vu all over again,” he said. Chase, who spent result night at Beef O’ Brady’s, surrounded by family, friends and TVs showing a Gators baseball game, said he feels excited about the results. “I think that clearly the people in District 2 are looking for something different,” he said. “I think my message was well-received.” James Ingle, who earned 10.9 percent of the votes in District 2, expressed his disappointment but said he thinks he ran a good campaign. think that we were embarrassed,” he said. He said if he had to do it over, he would have started campaigning sooner. He thought the public could use a break after the November midterm elections, so he began campaigning in January. “By then, I think there was a head start by the other people I was up against,” he said. For Bottcher, the run-off between her and Zeller represents a contrast in perspective on how the city is faring. Throughout the campaign, Zeller took many shots at the in the wake of an economic downturn. Bottcher, however, views the city’s actions from a different perspective, choosing to highlight progress made. “I’m a glass-half-full kind of person I think Gainesville has come a long way,” she said. In an interview at his postelection celebration at Gator City, Zeller said the outcome indicates that Gainesville residents are looking for something new in city government. While he acknowledged that he disagreed with the city commission on a lot of issues, he said if he is elected, his business experience would help improve the political process. “We disagree on a lot of things, but I think we can get some work done,” he said. The key to the run-off election, candidates from the two races said, will lie in who can court the votes of the thirdplace candidate who will not move on. In District 2, Robert Krames earned 22.6 percent of the votes, and James Ingle earned 10.9 percent. dent that Krames’ supporters will vote for him because they have similar viewpoints. “I think that the people who voted for Robert are going to be interested in looking at my campaign,” Chase said. The District 3 race, however, doesn’t seem so clear cut. UF professor Jimmy Harnsberger earned 24.4 percent of the vote, which is not enough to send him into the next round but enough to make his votes pivotal in such a contest. Just who will get those votes is anyone’s guess. Both Bottcher and Zeller believe their platforms will be attractive to Harnsberger voters in a run-off. Each side has a legitimate argument. Both Bottcher and Harnsberger are registered Democrats, but Harnsberger, throughout his campaign, used phrases such as “budget ity,” things Zeller emphasized as well. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 2011Gainesville City Election ResultsAt Large Thomas Hawkins 52.7% Don Marsh 42.0% Richard Selwach 2.7% Jeffrey G.

Tuesday’s question: Did/will you choose a major based solely on economic factors?23% YES 77% NO78 TOTAL VOTES People too obsessed with idea of timeTime is a pretty interesting thing. Daylight saving time? More like nightlife-losing time. Correct me if I’m wrong, but we can all thank Ben Franklin for its invention. Among other reasons, it was thought that daylight saving time helped people by shifting an hour of daylight in the morning to the evening to help with energy consumption and to keep an hour of morning sunlight from going by lamented as we curse the sun’s earlier arrival on summer mornings. Some college students ought to be particularly fond of this reasoning then: I can’t tell you how many students I’ve seen that almost entirely block their windows with blankets or towels to keep the sunlight out of their room year-round. A lot of them are on such disturbing sleep schedules (here’s a nod to you, architects-in-training) it’s a wonder daylight saving time means anything more than a small creep in deadlines lurching forward by one hour. Spring forward, fall back. I hope everyone realizes that the notion of even saying that one man — even as mythical as Ben is — somehow invented an extra hour is a little silly. It is the construct, the observance, that was put into practice. Certain common observances such as this are often decreed by governments or made common through religion. Look to Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Christmas for examples. It is interesting that time holds such sway over us that we all willingly accept this somewhatwhimsical change on our clocks to magically teleport the sun around when we choose. The numbers on a face or digital screen are the whistles to our Pavlovian drooling, and if the clock says it’s time to wake up, guess what we’re going to do? We hit the snooze button: It is much too early to get out of bed and start hopping around. If only someone could shift our waking hour to a little bit later in the day. And now we’re back where we started. Everything is relative. I think that all of us put too much emphasis on the time of our lives. Yes, as a tool, time is very useful: It helps you plan meetings and meet deadlines. Doesn’t that sound fun? It also helps you coordinate events and share common schedules so we can all see each other’s pretty faces at the same time every day. But do keep in mind that those numbers cracking the whip over your deadline, be it for an essay, an exam or an opinion piece for a newspaper, though important, are really just sigthing else. Look at a river: Most people say the river starts as tary meeting the ocean. People liken this to their lives — young in the mountains, old in the ocean. The fact is, all of those instances of the river are happening simultaneously, all the time. There is no young you and old you: The only reality of your younger years is your memory of them, and the same goes for your prediction of old age. No matter how thin you slice it, your present, right now, is the only reality. Sun will rise; get used to it. Change your clock; change your thinking. Too bad we can’t shift age around like we do daylight saving time: In this town, suddenly being teleported to the age of 21 would not go unappreciated. Watching What You SayIt’s common knowledge that when someone says something like, “No offense, but...” he or she is about to contradict him or herself. After watching a YouTube video making the rounds this week, we’re beginning to see those phrases about the video University of California — Los Angeles student Alexandra Wallace posted disparaging Asians she saw talking on phones in the school library. In an instantly connected consider the plethora of consequences that result from posting racist caricatures. Once something’s on the Internet, it has a life of its own — especially if the topic is incendiary and the creator us understand this concept on at least a visceral level, but let’s take it a step farther. The fallout from this woman’s rant did not only affect her and the people she was railing against. She was acting as a representative of her university to the people who viewed her video without a previous UCLA experience. It’s bad enough to wreck her standing in society, but poorly upon all American college students. After all, how could she get accepted into a prestigious school and advance this far in her education without considering her rant reprehensible? It boils down to what our mothers told us. No, not, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” Sometimes you need to call someone out, and talking in the library might be one of those cases. We just ask that people think before they speak, especially when they’re speaking for others.Excuse us if we seem confused. We’re trying to come to grips with the strange feeling of deja vu. It’s not merely that Glenn Beck has once again spewed his drivel, it’s his subject and reasoning that sent us reeling. His comments on the Japanese earthquake, which urged people to heed the disaster as a message from God, recall those made by Pat Robertson in the wake of the earthquake in Haiti more than a year ago. Beck didn’t denounce the Japanese for voodoo or pacts with the devil, of course, but he did advise people to follow the biblical Ten Commandments lest they do something to anger God into taking action. ing natural disasters as divine punishment for areas full of supposed sinners. Let’s think carefully about this. If a divine being is sending earthquakes and tsunamis to people with track records left? Hold on, Glenn, we need to grab our inner tube to prepare for the deluge. A better message to take from the tragedy is the strength of the human will. Or understanding the helplessness of mankind in the face of something so massive and uncontrollable. But that’s a humility lost on people who need to lower their heaven-pointed noses and drop the holier-than-thou attitude in order to feel and act like what they are — human.Noah’s Ark IIBeck’s interpretation of disasters is bizarreWesley Campbellletters@alligator.org

Sports WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 2011 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org ONLINE BRACKET CHALLENGE BASKETBALL PRACTICE OPEN INSIDE FLORIDA HELD ITS ANNUAL PRO DAY IN THE SWAMP ON TUESDAY.By GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writergluca@alligator.orgWhile NFL players and owners struggle to reach a new collective bargaining agreement, a number of departing Gators continue to prepare for a future that may be put on hold. As Florida held its annual Pro Tuesday, the participating players understood the career they’re training for may not be available to them next year. “It’s bad timing, man,” senior center Mike Pouncey said. “You and playing in the NFL is one of my biggest dreams.” Perhaps none of UF’s NFL Draft hopefuls will be as deeply affected by the lockout as junior safety Will Hill, who chose to leave school ear ly despite the uncertainty. Hill cited the need to provide for his wife and three children as the primary reason he declared, but the NFL owners’ recent decision to lock out the players would prevent him ing from his jump to the pros. Although he suggested he could degree or continue training in Boca Raton, Hill is hopeful the labor situation will be resolved before next season if there is a work stoppage. “I don’t think this country will let it go without football, because basically everybody loves football,” Hill said. “They will come to an agreement, and eventually they will have a season. And then it’s time to play ball.” Many of Hill’s teammates shared his optimism but formed contingency plans all the same. cus Gilbert said he would contact some of the veterans from whichever team selects him to prepare for the eventual jump, while Pouncey and senior safety Ahmad Black said they would continue workouts in Gainesville. Duke Lemmens, a senior defensive end with one semester left until he graduates with a degree in event management, said he would even consider planning a few weddings. “Easter theme, I could wear my light green pimp suit,” Lemmens said. “We’ll see.” Players like Lemmens, who could potentially go undrafted, are even more harshly affected than the Matt Tripp / Alligator Staff on Tuesday. Hill and more than 19 other athletes performed in front of NFL coaches and scouts. Labor dispute creates uncertain NFL futures for GatorsUF’s win important for many reasonsThe Gators received mountains of hype and accolades before they even played an inning this season. Fifteen games into its schedule, No. 1 Florida had yet to prove it is deserving of the attention. But on Tuesday, the Gators showed why they were atop the rankings. Thanks to a pretty soft schedule to start the season, UF’s record looked like that of a No. 1 team. broke through. And, who knew, all it took was one swing from Daniel Pigott. inoles’ four-game winning streak in the rivalry and extinguished any doubts that would have come along with three midweek losses to start the season. The importance of the victory didn’t go “Personally, I’m worn out,” he said. “I don’t quite remember ever being involved in a game like that. There was so many pitching changes. I think there were 15 pitchers who touched the mound tonight for both teams. They used their bench. We used our bench. Kind of a back-and-forth game.” That it was, but that’s what Florida needed. Before the victory, the Gators had been per game. Florida had not yet been forced to execute a comeback or come through at the plate during the late innings.

Weis cracked self-deprecating jokes, gave a reporter a pop quiz and made light of past missteps in his offensive coordinator. He even referred to Tom Brady as “Tommy,” explaining that is what friends call the three-time Super Bowl champion quarterback. Perhaps the most intriguing asteam begins spring practice today is the transition to a pro-style offense.

He left Kansas Maura; daughter, Hannah; and son, Charlie Jr. His son will be a freshman at UF this fall and hopes to pursue a coaching career, which will begin Maura is what Weis called “a horse buy a home in Ocala. But Hannah, a 15-year-old with special needs, may have had the after a rocky adjustment to Kansas City. “I had decided during this football season that we had to bring Hannah back to South Bend sometime late spring to get her back into her normal comfort zone,” Weis said. “She had a really rough year.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 2011 Hawkins wins; other races will go to run-off By CJ PRUNER and MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Staff Writers After all the votes were tallied and all the precincts accounted for, one candidate gets to go back to work as a winner, while four others have more work to do. That one, Commissioner Thomas Hawkins, fended off a stiff challenge for his atlarge seat, securing 52.7 percent of the vote count, locking up another term on the commission. In the races for Districts 2 and 3, no candidate received the 50 plus one majority required for a nomination, sending the respective races into a run-off round to be held in about four weeks. In the District 2 race, incumbent Lauren Poe will face local businessman and political newcomer Todd Chase in a run-off. Poe got 35.1 percent of the votes, and Chase received 31.4 percent.

SEE ELECTION, PAG E 4 MULTICULTURAL EVENTS Jewish reggae musician Matisyahu brings act to UF By KRISTIN LOPOPOLO Alligator Contributing Writer The Phillips Center for the Performing Arts is expected to be at full capacity tonight for a performance by Matisyahu. To celebrate Jewish Awareness Month, UF Student Government Productions teamed up with Accent and the Jewish Student Union to bring the Jewish reggae musician to campus. The artist will get $28,000 for his act. The event will consist of the performer's "insightful words and acoustic music," said Kyle Calhoun, the SG Productions music and entertainment chairman. Matisyahu is known for mixing Jewish topics with reggae. His first single, "King Without A Crown," ranked No. 28 on the Billboard Hot "Matisyahu's words bring peace to the Jewish community."

Instead of the artist performing his usual concert-style show, he will talk to students about recent events such as the tsunami and perform some of his hit songs acoustically. Rabbi Berl Goldman said this performance is perfect tming, considering the Israeli family that was murdered Friday night in Palestine. He said he cannot wait to hear the artist's positive message about caring for others. He said students called him over the weekend worried because they believe Jewish hate crimes will occur throughout the month. "Matisyahu's words bring peace to the Jewish community," he said. Accent's chairman Zack Goldstein said the musician is an Orthodox Jew, a denomination which only 10 percent of Jews in the U.S. practice because it follows strict application of laws found in the Torah.

The unknown prankster changed a temporary traffic sign that said "DETOUR" in large orange letters to "POOP." The message was there for most of the weekend. Then on Monday morning, the sign was changed to ": ) LOL" before workers managed to change it back to its standard message. The Texas Department of Transportation wasn't amused. Spokeswoman Raquelle Lewis told the Houston Chronicle that hacking the onboard computer that controls the sign is disruptive. It's also punishable by a fine of up to $500.

County has initial budget discussion By MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Writer To get the budget season started, the Alachua County Commission decided Tuesday to ask County Manager Randall Reid to create a possible budget for 2012. Commissioners voted 3-2 to have the manager create a budget based on how it has been created in the past. They will use this budget as a starting point and plan to adjust it as necessary throughout the budget-creating process. Chairman Lee Pinkoson and Commissioner Susan Baird voted against the motion. Pinkoson suggested adjusting the Supervisor of Elections Office and Sheriff's Office's budgets in a different way than other offices since both will require more money in the next year for the 2012 election and jail services, respectively. Commissioner Rodney Long suggested keeping the percentages of what each office gets from the overall budget the same. In that scenario, if a department needs more than the allotted percentage, then it could argue its case to the commisLocal sion. News While commissioners may not agree on the strategy to create the budget, they acknowledge that the 2012 budget will be smaller than previous years. "The question is, what's the size eof the cut?" Commissioner Mike Byerly said. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 3 UF RESEARCH Students overestimate hearing By ALLISON BANKO Alligator Writer When Dr. Colleen Le Prell recruited 21-year-olds who said they had normal hearing for a research study, she encountered an oddity. Some students who showed up for the study didn't actually have the normal hearing sensitivity that they thought they did. Le Prell, a UF associate professor in the department of speech, language and hearing sciences and the study's lead researcher, then conducted a different study measuring students' hearing losses and found that 25 percent of students who believed they had normal hearing actually did not. The research focused on 20 males and 37 females from UF who averaged around 21 years old and reported themselves to have normal hearing. The participants completed a health survey and a questionnaire about exposure to loud noises including sporting events, music players and concerts and loud activities such as using lawn equipment or doing construction. Male students who listened to personal music players were found to have the highest loss. Joseph Sparks, a Gainesville audiologist who has been practicing since 1980, said college freshmen 60 years ago had better hearing than today's freshmen. "It's a noisier, louder world," Sparks said. "We have more exposure to sound because we have more sources of it." Le Prell's findings concluded that the participants had hearing loss on a level not enough to require a hearing aid but enough to affect learning. "They will have a harder time understanding certain sounds," Le Prell said. "In order to get the most information from what the teacher is saying during lectures, they'll have to make adjustments such as moving to the front of the classroom." Kylie Rodriguez, a 22-year-old advertising senior, said she has trouble with her hearing. "It wasn't until the later years that I started realizing how often I was asking people to repeat things," she said. Rodriguez said she thinks it Le Prell has to do with listening to music. "I use the headphones that go deep into your ears, and I listen to my music on full blast," she said. "Now I can't listen to anything unless it's on full blast." Le Prell said that students should take preventatve measures to protect their hearing such as turning down their music as well as wearing earplugs in particularly loud places. "The sad reality is once hearing is gone, it doesn't back," Le Prell said. Stella & Dot is your dream internship in fashion and social selling.

4, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 2011 Supporters introduce Libya no-fly resolution at UN THE MOVE IS AIMED AT STOPPING THE BOMBING OF PROTESTERS. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS UNITED NATIONS -Supporters of a nofly zone over Libya introduced a U.N. resolution Tuesday aimed at stopping Moammar Gadhafi's planes from bombing civilians, with France urging quick action but Russia and Germany expressing misgivings. Divisions over a no-fly zone that emerged among top diplomats from the Group of Eight leading economies meeting in Paris earlier Tuesday were already spilling into negotiations in the 15-member U.N. Secunty Council, which includes many G-8 members. Britain's U.N. Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant said council members will discuss the proposed resolution "paragraph by paragraph" when they meet again Wednesday morning. Members had "a number of questions about the text, and everyone agreed they would send it back to capitals overnight," he said. Chinese Ambassador Li Baodong said issues to be clarified include whether the ban would apply to all flights countrywide. Indian Ambassador Hardeep Singh Pun said he and other members need to know what countries would contribute the assets for enforcing a no-fly zone. Lebanon, the Security Council's onlyArab member, introduced the no-fly provisions of the draft resolution -strongly endorsed by the Arab League -to council members at a closed meeting Tuesday afternoon. The Arabs are strongly backed by France and Britain, which drafted elements of a no-fly resolution last week. "We are deeply distressed by the fact that things are worsening on the ground, that the Gadhafi forces are moving forward extremely quickly, and that this council has not yet reacted," France's U.N. Ambassador Gerard Araud told reporters as he headed into the council meeting. "In the coming days we want a resolution .and we will do our utmost to get it." France and Britain failed to win support for a no-fly zone during the two-day meeting of G-8 foreign ministers and the group's final communique did not mention a flight ban. It instead warned of unspecified "dire consequences" if Gadhafi did not honor the Libyan people's claim to basic nghts, freedom of expression, and representative government. The halting efforts to raise pressure against Gadhafi's 42-year regime came as his forces used tanks, warships and artillery Tuesday to gain ground near the rebels' base in eastern Libya. The G-8 ministers agreed the Security Council needs to take more action to pressure Gadhafi to leave, possibly with new sanctions, but not military action. In New York, Lebanon's U.N. Ambassador Nawaf Salam said the section on the no-fly zone was drafted in consultation with Libya's U.N. Mission, which backs anti-Gadhafi forces. Salam said another section on "the strengthening and widening of sanctions" on Libya was introduced by Lyall Grant. The Arab League called Saturday on the U.N. "to shoulder its responsibility .to impose a no-fly zone over the movement of Libyan military planes and to create safe zones in the places vulnerable to airstrikes." Salam said Lebanon has asked Libya's U.N. Mission to identify specific areas where civilians would need proN ews tection and safe passage corridors. The Security Council on Feb. 26 imposed an arms embargo on Libya and ordered all countries to freeze assets and ban travel for Gadhafi and some close associates. It also referred the regime's deadly crackdown on protesters to the International Criminal Court, for an investigation of possible crimes against humanity. U.N. diplomats said the proposed new resolution would call for more muscular enforcement of the arms embargo, add names of individuals, companies and other entities to the list of those subject to travel bans and asset freezes, and ban commercial flights bringing arms or mercenaries into Libya. The draft resolution would also authorize states to work together to provide humanitarian assistance and take necessary measures to protect civilians. It also would establish a panel of experts to monitor implementation, the diplomats said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the text has not been released. Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at the G-8 that his country wants more details and clarity from the Arab League about its proposals for Libya before approving any military intervention. Amr Moussa, the Arab League's secretary-general, at the Paris meeting that a nofly zone would be humanitarian measure to protect Libyan civilians and foreigners in the country -not a military intervention. But German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said his country was "very skeptical" about military action. "We do not want to get sucked into a war in North Africa," he said. "We want to avoid any slippery slope in this direction." Lebanon's Salam insisted that a no-fly zone "in no way could qualify as a foreign intervention." "I would hope that the establishment of a no-fly zone would have a deterrent effect on the Gadhafi regime, not to fly its airplanes to attack civilian areas," he said. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who on Monday met with her counterparts and Sarkozy, traveled to Egypt for talks Tuesday and did not attend the G-8 meeting. jaruan areelei /R migalur District 3 City Commission candidate Ozzy Angulo awaits election results at the Supervisor of Elections Office on Tuesday. Angulo did not qualify for the run-off. Run-offs will take place next month ELECTION, from page 1 "It's sort of d6j vu all over again," he said. Chase, who spent result night at Beef 0' Brady's, surrounded by family, friends and TVs showing a Gators baseball game, said he feels excited about the results. "I think that clearly the people in District 2 are looking for something different," he said. "I think my message was well-received." James Ingle, who earned 10.9 percent of the votes in District 2, expressed his disappointment but said he thinks he ran a good campaign. "For a first time out, I don't think that we were embarrassed," he said. He said if he had to do it over, he would have started campaigning sooner. He thought the public could use a break after the November midterm elections, so he began campaigning in January. "By then, I think there was a head start by the other people I was up against," he said. For Bottcher, the run-off between her and Zeller represents a contrast in perspective on how the city is faring. Throughout the campaign, Zeller took many shots at the efficiency of city government in the wake of an economic downturn. Bottcher, however, views the city's actions from a different perspective, choosing to highlight progress made. "I'm a glass-half-full kind of person .I think Gainesville has come a long way," she said. In an interview at his postelection celebration at Gator City, Zeller said the outcome indicates that Gainesville residents are looking for something new in city government. While he acknowledged that he disagreed with the city commission on a lot of issues, he said if he is elected, his business experience would help improve the political process. "We disagree on a lot of things, but I think we can get some work done," he said. The key to the run-off election, candidates from the two races said, will lie in who can court the votes of the thirdplace candidate who will not move on. In District 2, Robert Krames earned 22.6 percent of the votes, and James Ingle earned 10.9 percent. Chase said he feels confident that Krames' supporters will vote for him because they have similar viewpoints. "I think that the people who voted for Robert are going to be interested in looking at my campaign," Chase said. The District 3 race, however, doesn't seem so clear cut. UF professor Jimmy Harsberger earned 24.4 percent of the vote, which is not enough to send him into the next round but enough to make his votes pivotal in such a contest. Just who will get those votes is anyone's guess. Both Bottcher and Zeller believe their platforms will be attractive to Harnsberger voters in a run-off. Each side has a legitimate argument. Both Bottcher and Harnsberger are registered Democrats, but Harnsberger, throughout his campaign, used phrases such as "budget cuts" and "fiscal responsibility," things Zeller emphasized as well.

State set to vote on teacher merit pay THE ASSOCIATED PRESS TALLAHASSEE -Republicansponsored legislation setting up a merit pay plan for teachers and ending tenure for new hires is set for a final vote in the GOP-controlled Florida House on Wednesday -11 months after former Gov. Charlie Cnst vetoed a similar bill. The new version is designed to mirror Florida's plan for a $700 million federal Race to the Top education grant that includes a move to merit pay. Opponents, though, say it goes beyond that blue print by chipping away at teachers' due process and collective bargaining rights. In floor action Wednesday, the House rejected four Democratic amendments that would have addressed some of those issues in the Senate-passed bill. The House sponsor, Rep. Erik Fresen, R-Miami, declared them to be "unfriendly" to the bill's intent. "The purpose of crafting this bill is actually to have an ability to determine what a good teacher is," Fresen said. "That's it." The legislation would require school districts to develop evaluation schemes based half on how much improvement each teacher's students have shown on the Flonda ComNews prehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) or other exams over a three-year period. The other half would be based on such factors as evaluations by principals. They could include advanced degrees but only if in a teacher's subject area. Those evaluations would be used to determine which teachers should get ment pay and which should be lot go. If passed by the House as expected, the bill would go to Republican Gov. Rick Scott, who has made it one of his top priorities. Crist, a Republican-turned-independent, vetoed last year's bill after widespread protests by teachers, parents and students as well as objections from many local school officials. Teachers hired after July 1 would never be able to get more than a oneyear contract. The defeated amendments included one offered by Rep. Reggie Fullwood, D-Jacksonville, that would have required school officials to give terminated teachers written reasons why they didn't get another annual contract. "It's about decency," Fullwood said. "For your contract not to be renewed at least tell me why." Another failed amendment would have allowed highly rated teachers to get three-year contracts. Existing teachers would have the option of sticking with their present salary plan or competing for ment pay. pwc I 6V 4

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 2011 Noah's Ark 11 Beck's interpretation of disasters is bizarre xcuse us if we seem confused. We're trying to come to grips with the strange feeling of deja vu. It's not merely that Glenn Beck has once again spewed his drivel, it's his subject and reasoning that sent us reeling. His comments on the Japanese earthquake, which urged people to heed the disaster as a message from God, recall those made by Pat Robertson in the wake of the earthquake in Haiti more than a year ago. Beck didn't denounce the Japanese for voodoo or pacts with the devil, of course, but he did advise people to follow the biblical Ten Commandments lest they do something to anger God into taking action. The two are riffing off the same idea: They're interpreting natural disasters as divine punishment for areas full of supposed sinners. Let's think carefully about this. If a divine being is sending earthquakes and tsunamis to people with track records of sin, what wouldn't be flooded out? What would we have left? Hold on, Glenn, we need to grab our inner tube to prepare for the deluge. A better message to take from the tragedy is the strength of the human will. Or understanding the helplessness of mankind in the face of something so massive and uncontrollable. But that's a humility lost on people who need to lower their heaven-pointed noses and drop the holier-than-thou attitude in order to feel and act like what they are -human. Watching What You Say It's common knowledge that when someone says something like, "No offense, but." he or she is about to contradict him or herself. After watching a YouTube video making the rounds this week, we're beginning to see those phrases as red flags. We're talking about the video University of California -Los Angeles student Alexandra Wallace posted disparaging Asians she saw talking on phones in the school library. In an instantly connected world, it's more difficult to consider the plethora of consequences that result from posting racist caricatures. Once something's on the Internet, it has a life of its own -especially if the topic is incendiary and the creator easily identifiable. Most of us understand this concept on at least a visceral level, but let's take it a step farther. The fallout from this woman's rant did not only affect her and the people she was railing against. She was acting as a representative of her university to the people who viewed her video without a previous UCLA experience. It's bad enough to wreck her standing in society, but Wallace's actions reflected poorly upon all American college students. After all, how could she get accepted into a prestigious school and advance this far in her education without considering her rant reprehensible? It boils down to what our mothers told us. No, not, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." Sometimes you need to call someone out, and talking in the library might be one of those cases. We just ask that people think before they speak, especially when they're speaking for others. all te independent forida alliigatRor Paul Runnestrand EDITOR Elizabeth Behrman Joshua Saval MANAGING EDITORS Cynthia Despres 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 includethe author's name, classification and phone number Names wiii be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105W University Aye, or send them to P0 Box 14257, Gainesvi Iie, FL 32604-2257oi umns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

Daylight saving time? More like nightlife-losing time. Correct me if I'm wrong, but we can all thank Ben Franklin for its invention. Among other reasons, it was thought that daylight saving time helped people by shifting an hour of daylight in the morning to the evening to help with energy consumption and to keep an hour of morning sunlight from going by lamented as we curse the sun's earlier arrival on summer mornings. Some college students ought to be particularly fond of this reasoning then: I can't tell you how many students I've seen that almost entirely block their windows with blankets or towels to keep the sunlight out of their room year-round. A lot of them are on such disturbing sleep schedules (here's a nod to you, architects-in-training) it's a wonder daylight saving time means anything more than a small creep in deadlines lurching forward by one hour. Spring forward, fall back. I hope everyone realizes that the notion of even saying that one man -even as mythical as Ben is somehow invented an extra hour is a little silly. It is the construct, the observance, that was put into practice. Certain common observances such as this are often decreed by governments or made common through religion. Look to Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Christmas for examples. It is interesting that time holds such sway over us that we all willingly accept this somewhatwhimsical change on our clocks to magically teleport the sun around when we choose. The numbers on a face or digital screen are the whistles to our Pavlovian drooling, and if the clock says it's time to wake up, guess what we're going to do? We hit the snooze button: It Today's question: Do you think Tuesday's question: Did/will you daylight saving time serves a choose a major based solely on purpose now? economic factors? Vote or post a message at www.alligator.org Wesley Campbell is much too early to get out of letters@alligator org bed and start hopping around. If only someone could shift our waking hour to a little bit later in the day. And now we're back where we started. Everything is relative. I think that all of us put too much emphasis on the time of our lives. Yes, as a tool, time is very useful: It helps you plan meetings and meet deadlines. Doesn't that sound fun? It also helps you coordinate events and share common schedules so we can all see each other's pretty faces at the same time every day. But do keep in mind that those numbers cracking the whip over your deadline, be it for an essay, an exam or an opinion piece for a newspaper, though important, are really just signifiers of every present occurrence's relativity to everything else. Look at a river: Most people say the river starts as a stream in the mountains, becomes the mighty flow that passes before them and finally becomes the tributary meeting the ocean. People liken this to their lives -young in the mountains, old in the ocean. The fact is, all of those instances of the river are happening simultaneously, all the time. There is no young you and old you: The only reality of your younger years is your memory of them, and the same goes for your prediction of old age. No matter how thin you slice it, your present, right now, is the only reality. Sun will rise; get used to it. Change your clock; change your thinking. Too bad we can't shift age around like we do daylight saving time: In this town, suddenly being teleported to the age of 21 would not go unappreciated. Wesley Campbell is afifth-year English major.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 2011E ALLIGATOR, 7 Foreign oil cripples US Why would a country that calls itself a world superpower willingly place itself at the mercy of foreign governments? Especially when that same government has the capabilities to lessen its dependence of foreign entities and strengthen its economy? The revolutions occurring in the Middle East are threatening America's already weakened economy. Egypt fell, Libya is next and it's only a matter of time until surrounding countries follow the same pattern. The instability threatens our ability to receive the resource so critical to our lives -oil. Because of the uprisings, oil companies in the Middle East are producng at a significantly lower rate. Less supply means higher prices. Experts are predicting S5 per gallon gas prices. These prices will cripple us and an economy that is just getting back on its feet. If we rely on shaky countries to supply us with our oil, America will have no choice but to enter into another war we can not afford. We have a stable government. Becca Kitchen If we began UWire producing our own supply of oil, we would no longer have the possibility of our economy being affected because of politics in the Middle East. I think that alternative forms of energy like solar and natural gas can benefit our society, but realistically, there is no way we will be free from oil. We need it, and America has it. There is a massive oil deposit that covers North Dakota and portions of South Dakota and Montana. This oil isn't the traditional crude oil we are used to. It is shale oil, but can be processed into lower-grade oil suited for cars. This process is laborious and expensive, but I would rather spend the money here to produce the oil than send money overseas. America sends hundreds of billions of dollars overseas every year because of oil. Imagine how stable our economy could become if we drilled here. Becca Kitchen is a student at the University of Nevada. Mardi Gras article embarrassing, trashy First off, I must say I generally don't read the Alligator because, overall, I find its news to be pointless and presented in a sophomoric manner. My real complaint is with the article in Monday's edition entitled "Mardi Gras fails to live up to hype." I was embarrassed to even have an article like this in my school newspaper, that only glorifies drinking (probably underage as well), wild partying and random hook-up sex. Focusing on nothing but the trashy aspects of Mardi Gras and New Orleans -not saying there are any classy ones -the article was the epitome of the dumbass college kid who has only ever "passed" the blunt and "graduated" from beer pong to the classier wine pong. Seriously. The article was trash, and it only made the already crappy newspaper trashier. I will only spread negative things about the Alligator until it improves its standards in this area of "news coverage. Tiffany Miles UF student Block tuition debate not class warfare The fight againstblocktuitonbegan admirably but has spun out of control thanks to the volition of a few students. When Ben Meyers campaigned on a vote against block tuition he didn't cast and Dave Schneider on a petition that he didn't write, I was upset but realized it was just politics. However, on my first day back from break, I was greeted by signs and graffiti stating that, "The block might spare you if you have a trust fund," and that the fight is some kind of class warfare. This is ridiculous. Statements like these conflate those among us who are fortunate to have college paid for with an administration that is ignoring the voice of its students, and they only serve to alienate a large population of the campus who are still affected by the change and are opposed to it. In a parting note, no one group has been more instrumental in stopping block tuition than the UF Students United Against Block Tuition, who originally discovered the proposed change and brought it to light via the petition many have signed. These are some upstanding students who you won't see using their work against block tuition to further their own political careers.

8, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16,2011 Dashiell, Hillier dominate midfield in Gators rout By JOHN BOOTHE Alligator Writer A day after cracking the top 10 for the first time in team history, the No. 10 Gators played like they deserved it with an 18-6 win over visiting Colgate. Florida (7-1) used the hot stick of Brittany Dashiell to come alive following a stagnant opening 10 minutes Tuesday. After falling behind the Raiders 1-0, Dashiell scored three of the Gators' first six goals and also contributed a first-half assist. "This was probably one of Brittany's best games she's ever played as a Florida Gator," coach Amanda O'Leary said. Dashiell was complemented by fellow midfielder Janine Hillier, who dominated in open space, weaving through traffic and past Colgate (3-4) defenders. "Toward the second half of the game, they started pressuring us more," Dashiell said. "We just moved the ball quickly so they would be running more and we could tire them out and then drive to goal." The Gators extended their four-goal halftime lead with a 10-1 run to start the second period, culminating with Dashiell's career-high fifth goal while Hillier chipped in three of her own. O'Leary said her midfielders were effective against the Raidsituations. ers because they were quicker "It helps to have a team with a and able to get in one-one-one little bit of speed," O'Leary said. MaX Keed / Alliga UF midfielder Brittany Dashiell passes the ball during the Gators' 18-6 victory against Colgate on Tuesday in Dizney Stadium. Dashiell contributed an assist and a career-high five goals. "You have Haydon [Judge] who can run, and Jamie [Reeg] who has a great stick and Janine just has the combination of both." After working hard to get the ball up the field in transition, Hillier was relieved to see Florida's attackers, Kitty Cullen and Ashley Bruns, finish what she and the midfielders started. Cullen and Bruns combined for seven goals on thirteen shots, allowing those who started the break to rest after sprinting 40-plus yards. "Brittany and Janine are our middies, they run up and down the field the whole game, playing offense and defense," O'Leary said. "They are just the big-time glue players for us, holding us together." With six minutes left, the Gators were able to clear the bench for the second straight game, something O'Leary and Hillier were pleased to see before Florida plays No. 11 Syracuse and then starts conference games a week later. "We're just moving forward and taking it day by day, but we wouldn't be as far as we are right now without those practice players who just go hard at practice, so everyone's accountable," Hillier said. F orida's powerful offense keyed by four star p ayers UF has scored 221 runs through 26 games this season By STEPHEN SHEEHAN Alligator Writer When it comes to offense, UF coach Tim Walton lives by the motto, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." When the No. 2 Gators (25-1, 2-0 SEC) are outscoring opponents 221-25, something is going right. Led by the powerful quartet of Aja Paculba, Kelsey Bruder, Brittany Schutte and Megan Bush, the Gators have pounded opponents with the long ball. While the rest of the lineup has had its ups and downs, those four have combined for 34 of the team's 49 home runs. Bruder, who ranks fifth on the team with a .351 average, has hit six homers out of the No. 3 spot in the lineup. Although many of her hard-hit balls have been right at fielders, she remains a key cog in the middle of the order. "It's our job as the heart of the lineup to produce almost all of the runs," Bruder said. "We've produced sac flies or a single here and there, and we've also gotten the big hit when we need to." In addition to the consistent Bruder and Paculba, the one player whose reputation is quickly growing is Schutte. "Schutte is feared by other teams," Walton said. "Coaches approach me after the game and say, 'She's such a tough out.' She can turn it around in a heartbeat with one swing of the bat." Expectations were high for the sophomore after she set five UF freshman hitting reSoftball cords with a .346 average, 19 homers and 59 RBIs last year. The cleanup hitter has not disappointed in year two, as she ranks second on UF with nine home runs and has also drawn a teamhigh 23 walks. After she exploded on to the scene last year, opponents have adjusted. Schutte has had to do the same. "It's more difficult this year because they know me better, so I'm limited on the pitches I get," she said. "They're definitely trying to get strikes that are off the plate." But with No. 5 hitter Megan Bush leading the team with 11 homers and 38 RBIs, opposing pitchers can hardly afford to pitch around Schutte. "When you're in the 3-, 4-, 5-spot, teams label you as the big hitters and want to be more careful," Bruder said. "We feed off each other. When Brittany's hitting good, they won't pitch to her, so they try to pitch to me. There are really no gaps in our lineup."

TI 1 I 'Ua U UF's win important for many reasons he Gators received mountains of hype and accolades before they even played an inning this season. Fifteen games into its schedule, No. 1 Florida had yet to prove it is deserving of the attention. But on Tuesday, the Gators showed why they were atop the rankings. Thanks to a pretty soft schedule to start the season, UF's record looked like that of a No. 1 team. However, midweek losses to FSU and Georgia Southern indicated otherwise. On, Tuesday, though, Florida finally broke through. And, who knew, all it took was one swing from Daniel Pigott. With the win, the Gators ended the Seminoles' four-game winning streak in the rivalry and extinguished any doubts that would have come along with three midweek losses to start the season. The importance of the victory didn't go unnoticed by coach Kevin O'Sullivan. "Personally, I'm worn out," he said. "I 0 Upset Florida's spring practices are closed to the public?

I think there were 15 pitchers who touched the mound tonight for both teams. They used their bench. We used our bench. Kind of a back-and-forth game." That it was, but that's what Florida needed. Before the victory, the Gators had been winning by a margin of more than five runs per game. Florida had not yet been forced to execute a comeback or come through at the plate during the late innings. For a while it looked like UF would flounder as it left 13 runners on base, but surprising standout Daniel Pigott came SEE ANTHONY, PAGE 15 0 Flip inside to Page 8 for stories on the Gators lacrosse team's 18-6 win over Colgate on Tuesday and the powerful heart of the Florida softball team's batting order.

By GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer gluca@alligator org While NFL players and owners struggle to reach a new collective bargaining agreement, a number of departing Gators continue to prepare for a future that may be put on hold. As Florida held its annual Pro Day in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Tuesday, the participating players understood the career they're training for may not be available to them next year. "It's bad timing, man," senior center Mike Pouncey said. "You want to fulfill all of your dreams, and playing in the NFL is one of my biggest dreams." Perhaps none of UF's NFL Draft hopefuls will be as deeply affected by the lockout as junior safety Will Hill, who chose to leave school early despite the uncertainty. Hill cited the need to provide for hs wife and three children as the primary reason he declared, but the Staff NFL owners' recent decision to lock ium out the players would prevent him from signing a contract and profiting from his jump to the pros. Although he suggested he could get a job, finish his anthropology degree or continue training in Boca Raton, Hill is hopeful the labor situation will be resolved before next season if there is a work stoppage. "I don't think this country will let it go without football, because basically everybody loves football," Hill said. "They will come to an agreement, and eventually they will have a season. And then it's time to play ball." Many of Hill's teammates shared his optimism but formed contingency plans all the same. Senior offensive lineman Marcus Gilbert said he would contact some of the veterans from whichever team selects him to prepare for the eventual jump, while Pouncey and senior safety Ahmad Black said they would continue workouts in Gainesville. Duke Lemmens, a senior defensive end with one semester left until he graduates with a degree in event management, said he would even consider planning a few weddings. "Easter theme, I could wear my light green pimp suit," Lemmens said. "We'll see." Players like Lemmens, who could potentially go undrafted, are even more harshly affected than the SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 15 I I 9 I I I U I I I I I T I I A I ii r ~ Pigott's walk-off hit snaps skid vs. 'Noles

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15 Undrafted players unable to speak with teams until new deal signed FOOTBALL, from page 14 highly rated prospects. Undrafted players cannot speak to teams or sign free-agent contracts until a new collective bargaining agreement is in place. This leaves them in limbo, unsure whether they should hold out hope for the NFL or move on with their lives. "It's unfortunate," Lemmens said. "Maybe I'll sneak into a late round and not have to worry about it. If I have to be a free agent, I'll just keep waiting for a phone call." Each Gator's fate hinges on the ability of the NFL owners and players to reach an accord as to how the league's revenue which totaled $9 billion last season -will be split. "I'm sure (the owners) will take a little bit of a pay cut," Black said. "At the end of the day, they own the team, but I don't think they played a down. I'm sure kids don't go to the store and say,'I want the owner's jersey. "I'm not going to take shots at the owners or anything like that. I'm sure they'll come to an agreement." ANTHONY, from page 14 through, like he has much of the season, with game-tying and game-winning hits. "For me it was (a sense of relief)," O'Sullivan said. "It's a rival game and one that we can't let slip away. You got all of these opportunities and we left, I think, 13 guys stranded. At some point, you've got to cash in against good teams." A loss to the Seminoles would have sent the Gators into their Southeastern Conference schedule reeling -a place they don't want to be in heading into Baton Rouge, La., to play No. 8 LSU this weekend. But it's funny how sports work. Take away Pigott's effort and the Gators lose a fifth consecutive game to the Seminoles. Florida would have likely lost its No.1 ranking and doubt would have hlled the minds of most of the players. However, just one hit from Pigott changed all of that. All of a sudden, things are looking up heading into conference play. "I think [the win] helps a lot, to be quite honest with you," O'Sullivan said. "I don't know if it's going to have any outcome on how we play this weekend, but I know going into it I feel a lot better. "You get beat by your rival four games in a row, you start feeling like you got to get one, start breaking a trend. I thought this was a big win for us, a really big win." Momentum is always swinging back and forth, but the Gators have it on their side now. They can thank Pigott for that. Larson creates opportunity for comeback with strong relief outing BASEBALL, from page 14 against good teams." Similar to its recent previous losses against FSU (15-2), Florida was in an early hole thanks to a poor start by Alex Panteliodis. The lefty fought constant pressure during his brief outing, failing to get out the leadoff hitter in every inning. Panteliodis tossed a 26-pitch first inning but escaped a bases-loaded jam with deep flyout to center field. However, in the third inning, Florida State put up a four spot with a couple of bombs. Following a two-run shot to right and opposite-field double to left, Panteliodis was pulled after just 2.1 innings, allowing three runs on five hits. Greg Larson entered and struck out the first batter he faced before FSU's Justin Gonzalez crushed a two-run homer over the left-field bleachers. But the game turned after Larson settled down. Despite giving up the bomb to Gonzalez, Larson pitched well in relief, throwing 3.2 innings and retiring the last eight batters in a row. "The key to it was Larson settling things down," O'Sullivan said. "After the two-run homer, he put three zeros on the board." The Gators chipped away with runs in the third and fourth, but they continually wasted valuable chances, struggled with breaking balls and off-speed pitches and consistently swung out in front of changeups and curveballs. UF threatened in the fifth, but FSU right fielder James Ramsey, who also hit one of the two homers in the third, made a diving catch to save extra bases and end the scoring opportunity. In the seventh, Mike Zunino hit a comebacker to the Seminoles sidearmer Daniel Bennett, stranding three runners on base. "You could feel the frustration in the dugout," O'Sullivan said. The game got testy in the eighth when O'Sullivan contested vehemently to the umpire's inconsistent strike zone. One batter later, Nick Maronde drilled FSU's Stuart Tapley, who objected, nearly causing a brawl. UF assistant coach Brad Weitzel was ejected, then somehow was allowed to stay in the game. But the Gators escaped further damage and captured the momentum when Preston Tucker gunned out a runner at the plate. In the bottom half of the frame, Pigott smashed a single into center, tying the game and sending the raucous crowd into a frenzy. Two innings and a combined 15 pitchers later, Pigott won the game for the Gators with a knock off the Seminoles'hard-throwing closer. "I knew [McGee] was going to give me a hard time up there, but you just have to go up there with your best mindset, knowing you're better than the other guy and you're going to Florida junior outfielder Daniel Pigott swings during the 10th inning of the Gators' 5-4 win against Florida State on Tuesday at McKethan Stadium. win," Pigott said. back and forth a little bit yesterday.

16, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 2011 UF FOOTBALL Weis' move to Florida motivated by family needs By ADAM BERRY Alligator Staff Writer a berry@alligator org Following Florida coach Will Muschamp at the podium Monday afternoon, Charlie Weis appeared to have all the intensity of a Sunday drive. Weis cracked self-deprecating jokes, gave a reporter a pop quiz and made light of past missteps in his first press conference as the Gators' offensive coordinator. He even referred to Tom Brady as "Tommy," explaining that is what friends call the three-time Super Bowl champion quarterback. Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of UF's coaching change as the team begins spring practice today is the transition to a pro-style offense. But after one year running the Kansas City Chiefs' offense and five as the highly scrutinized head coach at Notre Dame, the pressure is off Weis in his new role. "This is Coach Muschamp's offense, not Charlie Weis' offense. This is the University of Florida, this is not Charlie Weis' offense," Weis said. "I'm just trying to get us back to winning on a regular basis, and I think we all want the same thing." Making the move back to the college game wasn't a difficult decision for Weis, who was primarily motivated by his family. He left Kansas City for Gainesville to suit his wife, Maura; daughter, Hannah; and son, Charlie Jr. His son will be a freshman at UF this fall and hopes to pursue a coaching career, which will begin as a student assistant for the Gators. Maura is what Weis called "a horse person," so the family will fittingly buy a home in Ocala. But Hannah, a 15-year-old with special needs, may have had the biggest influence in Weis' decision after a rocky adjustment to Kansas City. "I had decided during this football season that we had to bring Hannah back to South Bend sometime late spring to get her back into her normal comfort zone," Weis said. "She had a really rough year. Sometimes when you move, you forget about things that are really important in life. "The fact that I can take care of my wife and my daughter and my son and kind of mesh everything together, it's really as simple an answer as that one." Although there were plenty of personal benefits in accepting Muschamp's offer, the Gators will likely reap the greatest rewards from the move. The four-time Super Bowl champion brings a lengthy resume, a great deal of offensive expertise and an impressive presence on the recruiting trail -all of which Florida greatly needs after a disappointing 2010 season. "Part of buying in is instant credibility, and he brings instant credibility as a football coach because of what he's accomplished," Muschamp said. "Our players understand what he's talking about is good and it works, and it's worked before, and it will work again, and it will work for us this year." Weis said he plans to use the spring practice season as a chance to mentally and physically challenge the Gators to see if they can handle the new offensive scheme, but he knows he is inheriting a roster full of players recruited to run the spread. ivaz mrpp / io r bia New Florida offensive coordinator Charlie Weis will bring a pro-style philosophy to the Gators this season. He will get his first chance to work hands-on with the team when UF opens spring practices today. UF's offense will involve more under-center, pro-style packages, but Weis said his philosophy is equally predicated on formations and personnel. "It all depends on what you have and who you have. That's what you do, and that's yet to be determined," Weis said. "I have not seen these guys put a football in their hands yet. "But I can tell you this: We've got a bunch of guys that can run. I've seen that in the time I've been here. I think [Jeff Demps'] 6.53 60 meters, I might be able to figure out something to do with him." Weis also thinks he can make use of quarterback John Brantley, a more natural fit for Weis' offense than Urban Meyer's. Brantley isn't guaranteed a starting spot, Weis said, but he has the experience and ability to thrive in the Gators' new system. "He's not super athletic, but then, Tommy Brady was not super athletic," Weis said. "I'm not comparing John Brantley to Tommy Brady, but just because somebody says you're not super athletic does not mean you can't be a front-line quarterback." Weis recruited Brantley while he was at Notre Dame and admitted to already taking a few "Jersey swipes" at the quarterback for choosing a spread-option system in the first place. But Weis spoke more glowingly about Florida's program and history -particularly as it related to his long journey to Gainesville. "When you get beat on the recruiting trails a whole bunch of times, which I did, and [Meyer] ends up winning two National Championships and I get fired, I think maybe I came to the right place," Weis said.
