More boots than suits at cowboy church

0 THE CONGREGATION MEETS
THURSDAY NIGHTS IN WILLISTON.

By ALEX ORLANDO
Alligator Writer

When the whip cracks, they know they're
in the presence of the Lord.
A group of boys spitting chew around a
fence post glances over.
In a nearby field, 9-year-old Hunter Holmes
and 6-year-old Emory Weins, both in match-
ing plaid shirts and cowboy hats, break from
herding fellow elementary schoolers and perk
up their ears.
Older folks, still fiishing their dinner of
pulled pork and baked beans, put down their
forks and make their way to the pavilion.
Hats fly off heads as the Rev. Billy Keith be-
gins the prayer offerings.
Instead of pews, the congregation sits on
picnic benches. For an offering basket, they use
a 10-gallon hat. Rather than a choir, Christian
country singer Hunter Erwin sings "I Found
Jesus at a Walmart."
This is cowboy church.
In a rodeo arena just off S.R. 41 in Williston,
the rugged and the denim-decked have met
every Thursday at 7 p.m. for five years to hear
sermons from Keith.
He's a burly man with a thick goatee and an
even thicker Southern accent. His work-hard-
ened hands wrap all the way around yours as
he greets you with, "How y'all doing? "
T. ; In 2006, Keith left Otter Creek Baptist
AlexOrlando/ Alligator Church in Williston to start his own church.
C', _,1,:,11 he didn't figure himself to be the
Christian country singer Hunter Erwin leads a chorus of "I Found Jesus at a Walmart" during a service at a Cross Brand Cowboy
Church in Williston. SEE COWBOY, PAGE 5

Pilot flies aid to Japan


By ALLISON BANKO
Alligator Writer

Timothy Berryhill was no stranger to
earthquakes.
The U.S. Navy pilot and UF graduate had
been previously stationed in Okinawa, Japan,
where he sat through plenty of small shakes
and tremors.
But earlier this month, when the rocking
in the 35-year-old's base room in Atsugi per-
sisted past the short seconds he was used to,
he knew something was out of whack.
"It was disorienting," said Berryhill, who
graduated in December with a master's de-
gree in chemical engineering. "It took me 20
seconds to realize,'OK, this is a lot worse than
the tremors I've experienced before.'"


Berryhill attempted to get out of his room,
where he was completing some work on his
computer. The shaking was so bad he almost
fell down. He made it to a nearby stairwell,
where he clung onto the railing for safety.
Then, just like that, it was over.
"This is a lot worse than the
tremors I've experienced before."

UF graduate

After the shaking on March 11 subsided,
he ventured to a fellow crew member's room
to figure out what exactly was going on.

Bison removal finalized


By MEREDITH RUTLAND
Alligator Writer

Against many citizens' wishes,
Paynes Prairie will no longer have liv-
ing, breeding herds of bison and horses.
About half of Paynes Prairie Preserve
State Park's bison, and possibly its hors-
es, will be removed from the park next
winter.
The final plan for removing the ani-
mals was released by the Florida De-
partment of Environmental Protection
last week, about six months after the


plan was announced.
In previous interviews, department
staff said the animals will be removed
due to concerns of inbreeding and wor-
ries that the animals will
Local escape into residential ar-
News eas.
The final plan differs
slightly from the draft
plan, which went up against public scru-
tiny in a citizen meeting on Nov. 30.
The plan recommends removing all
male bison from the herd of about 60 bi-

Raccoon's head stuck in peanut butter jar; kids name him 'Skippy'


RONKONKOMA, N.Y. - A New York
raccoon found itself in a sticky situation over
the weekend.
For eight hours on Sunday, the scaven-
ger sat with its head inside a peanut butter
jar while perched atop a Long Island utility
pole.
The unusual sight brought out dozens of
curious residents on a Ronkonkoma street.
Children quickly nicknamed him Skippy.
Newsday says Debbie Sullivan spotted


the raccoon outside her house at 7 a.m. She
called Suffolk police, the town of Islip and
the state Department of Environmental Con-
servation. They all said little could be done.
The raccoon's ordeal finally ended
around 3 p.m. when a crew from the Long
Island Power Authority came to its rescue.
The jar fell off as they used a pole to grab
the animal.
Skippy quickly scampered off.

UF buildings lack funding

HELP PAY FOR CONSTRUCTION. "We've delayed three years and construc-
tion costs have gone up," she said.
Some buildings were given the go-ahead
By HANNAH WINSTON when the university took out loans and
Alligator Writer thought the money would come through.


For the third year in a row, $130 million
in donations for UF won't be matched by the
state, and an estimated state deficit of more
than $3 billion looms as the culprit.
The construction of 15 buildings, includ-
ing a Chemical Engineering Building and
Graduate Studies building, would have been
paid for by the Alec P. Courtelis University
Facility Enhancement Challenge Grant Pro-
gram. In the program, $29.4 million from
university donors would have been matched
by the state for a total of nearly $58.8 million.
Leslie Bram, associate vice president of the
University of Florida Foundation, a nonprofit
organization that invests and raises money
for UF, said all the proposed new buildings
are necessary and highly anticipated.
"Our donors and benefactors are frustrat-
ed because they want to see the projects come
through," she said.

Construction on Hough Hall finished last
fall and the Harn Museum of Art's Cofrin
Asian Art Wing is expected to be completed
next spring. The university is still waiting for
state funding to pay off loans.
The Major Gifts Trust Fund Matching
Grant Program would have matched more
than $101 million in donations that could
have gone to a number of projects at UF, ac-
cording to Janine Sikes, spokeswoman for the
university.
"We understand that budgets are tight at
this point," she said.


NYT still free on campus


By JESSICA KEGU
Alligator Contributing Writer

The New York Times began charg-
ing users to view online content Mon-
day.
The Times print edition is current-
ly available for free on campus, and
there are already plans to extend the
college readership program to digital
subscriptions, according to an email
from Eileen Murphy, vice president
of corporate communications for The
Times.
Readers who do not digitally sub-
scribe will still be able to access ar-
ticles a number of ways that don't
count toward the new 20 articles per
month limit.
If a reader is linked to an ar-
ticle through a social media web-
site, the view does not count toward
the monthly limit, according to The
Times.


Similar rules are in place for search
engines like Google, but there will be
a daily limit imposed on articles found
through certain major search engines.
The new digital subscriptions are
available in three different packages,
which range from $15 per month to
$35 per month.
Readers who already subscribe to
the home delivery edition will also
have unlimited on-
Around line access, which
Gainesville they can register for
online.
UF professor Mindy McAdams
said she thinks the fair conditions of
the article limits for non-subscribers
will help keep the readership from
dramatically decreasing.
Murphy said libraries will eventu-
ally be covered under group accounts,
which they are working to make avail-
able in the next several months.

Area unemployment rate drops


By MORGAN WATKINS
Alligator Writer

While many people are still on
the job hunt in Gainesville, some
of their fellow unemployed peers
have landed paid positions that
have contributed to a nearly one-
point drop in the area's unemploy-
ment rate in February.
According to data released by
the state this week, Alachua Coun-
ty's unemployment rate dipped
to 7.7 percent in February, an im-
provement from the 8.6 percent
figure in January
In January, 11,234 people in the
area were unemployed out of a la-
bor force of 130,932. In February,
that number dropped to 10,137
unemployed people out of a labor
force of 131,083 people.
The Gainesville area, which
is comprised of Alachua and Gil-


christ counties, boasted the lowest
unemployment rate of 23 Florida
metro areas with a 7.8 percent rate
for February, according to the state
report.
"Gainesville is overcom-
ing and surpassing
the old idea that we're
not a business-friendly
community."
Susan Bottcher
District 3 City
Commission candidate

Gainesville Mayor Craig Lowe
posted on his Twitter: "February
unemployment numbers show that
#Gainesville is moving forward!"
His sentiment was echoed by
Susan Bottcher, a candidate for the
District 3 City Commission seat in


Gainesville.
She said the improved un-
employment rate showed how
Gainesville is gradually becoming
a more business-friendly area.
"Gainesville is overcoming and
surpassing the old idea that we're
not a business-friendly commu-
nity," Bottcher said. "I think we
have to keep our eye on the ball
and continue to make sure our lo-
cal government works with local
businesses."
Bottcher's opponent in the April
12 run-off election for District 3,
Rob Zeller, said many Gainesville
residents still face the harsh reality
of being unable to feed their fami-
lies each day.
With so many people still un-
employed, Zeller said there is
much work to be done to improve
the area's private sector to ensure
they would be able to find jobs.


State will try to put bison in sanctuary


PRAIRIE, from page 1


son, leaving about 30 females and sterilized male calves
to continue roaming the prairie. This is a change from
the draft plan, which stated only 15 female bison would
stay in the prairie.
The male horses, which are part of a herd of about 30
Florida cracker horses, will either be removed or steril-
ized and left to roam.
The Florida Cracker Cattle herd will remain at Hick-
ory Ranch, the park's cattle ranch.
The plan states that the animals will be removed but
does not say exactly how or who will take them.
Park manager David Jowers refused to comment.
Kirstin Lock, public information officer for the Flori-
da Department of Environmental Protection, said in an
email that the details of the removal have not been deter-
mined, but the next step is to draft a request for offers.


It says the "first preference" is to put the bison in an
animal sanctuary. If sanctuaries will not take the males,
then the park will find other solutions.
She said the park will screen everyone who applies
to take the animals to ensure that the bison are treated
humanely.
To remove the animals, the plan states the park will
need to hire a contractor to round them up.
Some protesters of the plan are
Around concerned that the bison will be
Gainesville killed for their meat, an issue which
is not specifically addressed in the
plan. Others are worried the park won't have as many
visitors if the animals are removed.
"You can bet that 70 to 80 percent of those people
are there to see the bison, the horses and the birds," said
Chuck Littlewood, a wildlife photographer who visits
the park weekly.

er," he said. "We saw the tsunami and it was very surreal."
It almost seemed like we were watching a movie. It was
humbling watching the cars and the buildings being taken by
the force of the water."
Within the hour, Berryhill called his wife, Katie McGoogan,
and sent a mass email to friends to let them know he was OK.
McGoogan, an employee at Shands, said her husband called
her just before she had time to panic, as she woke up to the
news on the radio with her 7 a.m. alarm.
In a span of a couple days after the disaster struck, Berry-
hill's Navy squadron, along with other squadrons from Penn-
sylvania, began mission work to help those in need.
That Friday, Berryhill went on a mission to distribute 21,000
pounds of food to the survivors, which they dropped off at an-
other air base to be trucked down to the disaster areas.
In the Navy's missions, supplies ranging from seismology
gear to toilet paper to blankets were delivered.
However, Rod Turbak, Berryhill's commanding officer, said
that Japan's government never formally asked for the help.
E ._ , ; I-... wants to reach out and lend a helping hand,"
he said. "People donated things. They piled up quite fast."
Part of the cargo delivered by the Navy was from donations.
The rest were from supplies that were on hand.
While flying on the relief missions, Berryhill and his crew
were given radiation detectors to determine their nuclear con-
tamination resulting from the destruction.
Based on the readings, the crew hadn't been contaminated.
Now he's back in Gainesville with his wife and 14-month-
old child. But Berryhill, who had lived in Japan for three years,
said he still carries a personal attachment to the area.
"I hold a special place in my heart for the Japanese people,"
he said. "This is a huge tragedy. It was an honor to serve and
assist our friends in time of need."

Scott going after


bad docs, pill mills
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TALLAHASSEE - A new Florida strike force will target
unscrupulous doctors and pharmaceutical manufacturers il-
legally distributing prescription drugs to addicts and drug
dealers, Gov. Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi said
Monday.
Scott said the project would be paid for with $800,000 in
unused federal grant money. He noted that 98 of the 100 lead-
ing dispensers of these drugs nationally are doctors who reside
in Florida. He's also bringing in several other state agencies
to help the Florida Department of Law Enforcement with the
investigation into the trafficking of prescription drugs and so-
called pill mills. The pill mills have given the state a deserved
but unwanted reputation as a haven for anyone looking for
such drugs - most often the highly addictive pain-killer oxy-
codone.
More oxycodone is distributed illegally in
State Florida than all other states combined. Most of
News the illegal activity in Florida is in the areas sur-
rounding Miami, Tampa and Orlando, where 126
million oxycodone pills have been distributed.
"For too long in Florida, drugs have ruined lives and threat-
ened our safety," Scott said. "We should be able to figure out
how to stop this."
Scott said FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey will direct
the strike force, which is aimed at eliminating the "flamingo
express" - the nickname given to the pipeline of illicit pre-
scription drugs that flow out of Florida to other states, most of
which have prescription monitoring systems.
Scott, however, has proposed the state scrap a planned data-
base for tracking prescription drugs, claiming privacy concerns.
Bondi is opposed to Scott's suggestion and trying to work with
him to find an alternative.
The strike force with also be assisted by the Florida High-
way Patrol, investigators from the Division of Insurance Fraud,
sheriff's departments and community police forces. The De-
partment of Health and the Agency for Health Care Adminis-
tration will provide regulatory and licensing personnel.
The pill mill issue has been Bondi's primary focus since she
was sworn in as attorney general less than three months ago.

pastor type. But a few months
into organizing the church, he
said, the Lord put the burden on
him to preach. Since then, he's
gained 120 to 160 followers. He
gets more every year at church-
sponsored rodeos.
The church is part of the
Cross Brand Cowboy Church
network of similar churches
scattered around the continent.
The church is informal and
nondenominational. Keith says
that's how he likes it.
"Everything that should be
happening in a church atmo-
sphere is happening," he said.
Since starting the church,
Keith has performed two bap-
isms, both in a cow trough out
back. He's also led two wed-
dings with the brides wearing
little white dresses. The grooms
put on their best tuxedo tops
and blue jeans.
Keith said informal events
like those draw his target audi-
ence: day-working cowboys.
Usually, they are the most reluc-
tant ones to attend.
"They don't like to be around
people," he said. "They just like
to be around their horses and
cows."
Now, cowboys make up
three-fourths of the congrega-
hon. Mickey Thornton is one of
them.
He's about 5 feet 7 inches tall
and built like a grizzly bear. He's
usually seen wearing clay-caked
Wranglers, dusty work boots
and a camouflage ball cap. The


only clean thing on his body is a
iny pewter cross that hangs be-
tween the top two buttons of his
flannel work shirt.
On an average day's worth of
work at Whitehurst Cattle Com-
pany, he drives 500 head of cat-
tle, tagging ears and castrating
bulls. He sees the sun rise and
set while he's in the saddle. But
he still makes time for church.
Thornton started coming two
years ago when he saw the sign
on S.R. 41 and "came in to see
what's going' on."
He kept making time every
week and works now as the are-
na team leader for the rodeos.
That, he says, is what got him
out of the North Georgia bars
and into barrel races, roundups
and prayers.
He leads a five-minute prayer
before every rodeo event.
"That may be the only word
of God a cowboy ever gets," he
said. "Whether you need to put
Christ in a cowboy or cowboy in
a Christan."
John Young joined the church
after coming to one of Thorn-
ton's rodeos. Young has been
riding his whole life.
"Well, not all of it," he said.
"It ain't over yet."
He's the son of a Baptist
preacher and chose here over
any of the area's churches.
"Sometimes you just don't fit in
other places," he said.
The rodeo also brought in
Glenn Bush. He brought his
12-year-old grandson for mut-

STUDENT HEALTH


Research


links energy


drinks with


health risks
By BRIANNA DONE
Alligator Contributing Writer

A review of the effects of high-caffeine
.I- -. _ .- drinks on children and young adults
suggests they may be linked to health risks
as serious as heart palpitations, high blood
pressure, cardiac arrest and death.
The review, published in February in Pe-
diatrics, the official journal of the American
Academy of Pediatrics, analyzed scientific
reports in medical journals, newspaper ar-
ticles and regulatory steps taken in other
countries regarding high-caffeine energy
drinks.
Officials with the American Beverage As-
sociation, however, said the study presents
some misinformation about energy drinks,
claiming an average drink contains only half
the caffeine of a cup of coffeehouse coffee.
"It's a hot college topic," said Shannon
Kirkpatrick, health promotion specialist
for GatorWell Health Promotion Services.
"I have had a lot of students ask me about
,I-_ .- - _ drinks. They have packed schedules
and think it's good to find something that
provides a boost."
"I have had a lot of students ask
me about energy drinks. They have
packed schedules and think it's
good to find something that pro-
vides a boost."
Shannon Kirkpatrick
Health Promotion Specialist

The study defines i. i-. _ - drinks as drinks
that "contain caffeine, taurine, sugars and
sweeteners, herbal supplements, and other
ingredients and are distinct from sports
drinks and vitamin waters."
The study concluded that 31 percent of
12- to 17-year-olds and 34 percent of 18- to
24-year-olds reported regularly consuming
i-, i_- drinks.
"I have them about every other week,"
political science freshman Max Goldstein
said. "It keeps me awake for tailgates ... and
when I have to be up all day."
An average energy drink contains 70 to
80 milligrams of caffeine per 8-ounce serv-
ing, about three times the concentration of
cola drinks.
Energy drinks are classified as dietary
supplements, so the U.S. Food and Drug Ad-
ministration cannot limit their caffeine con-
tent, as they do with juice and soft drinks,
which are categorized as food.
In addition, U.S. poison centers have not
yet been able to monitor the number of over-
doses associated with energy drinks because
these episodes are classified as "caffeine" or
"multi-substance exposure."
But Kirkpatrick said overdosing is pos-
sible.
"Dehydration, vomiting, upset stomach,
irregular heartbeat and, as seen lately in the
media, even coma and death can occur," she
said.

Editorial

Academic Cred

Professors shouldn't be

"strictly business"

rofessors might want to rethink how their students
perceive them. In a study published in the March is-
sue of Learning, Media and Technology, researchers
found that professors who reveal a bit of their personal
lives are viewed as being more credible and more caring
by students.
So maybe the notion we have that a "strictly business"
demeanor is a good way to appear focused and knowl-
edgeable is wrong.
It's understandable: Students should learn from a pro-
fessor, but knowing that we're seeing and interacting with
a human being puts us at ease and in a better position to
process information.
We generally don't mind hearing faculty go on tangents
about previous work experience, their travels or - for
those of us who have taken microeconomics - Leonardo's
Pizza. Sometimes, we appreciate the break in the monoto-
ny and the chance to connect with our professors.
There's a balance to be struck, of course, so that we aren't
inundated with hour-long epics involving our instructors'
pets, but professors should let that academic and profes-
sional facade slip here and there. Mentioning your family
or giving a personal opinion on a subject sometimes helps
us more than sticking to stripped-down facts.
Remember: There are reasons robots haven't replaced
our faculty.


We Heart the OED


t may come as a sur-
prise, but we aren't lan-
guage purists.
If you heard the way we
talk around the office at
times, it's hard to fathom a
coherent product resulting
from our efforts.
Even so, we're a little
dismayed at the Oxford Eng-
lish Dictionary's choices for
newest words.
We saw "LOL" and
"OMG" coming; their usage
has extended even to news
headlines.
However, we're wonder-
ing who thought including
"heart" as a verb was a good
idea.
We usually hear this use
of the word in a sarcastic
context, as if the speaker is
too current to say the word
"love." The literal reading
of a pictograph is too silly
to be immortalized on pa-
per. For instance, doesn't
"I heart you" sound just as
sincere as those other three


words?
In light of this inclusion,
we've brewed up a little
theory on these ridiculous
additions.
How many people still
break out the OED - even
in its online version - to
look up a word?
It's losing ground, but
one of the ways to flag
down some public notice
is to elect flash-in-the-pan
words that have no place in
a dictionary to go into the
book.
We hear the same story
ever year.
The annual additions
generally include a few le-
gitimate entries needed to
keep the dictionary up to
date sprinkled among the
ludicrous ones needed to
stir up some buzz.
Here's to hoping it's a
cry for help from a respect-
ed institution rather than
terrible decision-making.

Spelling worsened by technology crutch


redictive text technology is a wonderful thing. If
you know only a few letters or the beginning of a
word, most smartphones will automatically sug-
gest multiple options for what you were looking for.
Efficient? Yes. Convenient? Yes. Simply astounding
technology? Definitely.
Recently, however, I made a shocking discovery; I
can no longer spell.
Any word with minimal complication, even one I use
almost every day, now presents a new challenge if not
presented in a technological medium. When asked to
spell "across" by my roommate, I found my forehead
scrunched in an attempt to remember how many C's
and S's there are. Even as I just typed the word "across"
in this column, I spelled it acrosss" because I knew
Microsoft Word would conveniently provide the auto-
corrected text.
Cellphone technology and word processing func-
tions have become such a crutch that we find ourselves
less engaged in the mechanical intricacies of our work
due to the ease of perfecting them with such functions.
Always a reader as a child, my vocabulary, spelling and
grammar were accelerated. Now, years later, I've found
myself crippled by advanced technologies that will do a
majority of my thinking for me.
People tend to only be as intelligent as they have to
be. Average people in the world (this excludes those
involved in intricately specialized professions such
as computer programming) seemingly fall victim to
technology which can "think" for them. Spell a word
wrong? Just right click and select the correct option.
Need a more scholarly word for a paper? The synonym
function will help you. All of these mindless opera-


Stions allow us to stare blankly
at the screen while our mouse
perfects our papers and essays.
Of course, nothing is perfect -
we all know not to rely on Spell
Check - but many functions,
Laura Ellermeyer such as Thesaurus and even Au-
letters@alligatororg toComplete, operate virtually
flawlessly to ease projects which
would have required much more thought 20 years ago.
But does it even matter? How much important writing
do we even do off of the computer anyway? Anything
handwritten is usually brief and in note form - and
certainly not meant to be professional or scholarly.
When typing papers or business documents, as long
as we know a skeleton of a difficult word we can easily
get the correct word inserted into the correct space. It's
a rare occurrence when we are required to accurately
spell words on the spot.
Clearly, technology is not dumbing us down, or we
wouldn't have the constant advancements that we do,
but are the efforts of the programmers and inventors
slowly encroaching more and more on our brains? It's a
cycle, as new technology allows new information that in
return provides new technology, but for the freeloaders
such as myself, how do we halt total reliance on these
conveniences? Depending on modern, communication-
improving luxuries is like relying on a calculator with-
out understanding math: It may yield a correct answer
most of the time, but it will eventually fall if you don't
know where to put the parenthesis.

Florida House
Women's rights are under attack
again.
Florida lawmakers have filed
a bill that would make it a felony for doc-
tors to perform abortions after 20 weeks of
pregnancy - a blatant violation of wom-
en's rights under Roe v. Wade. Other bills
include provisions that would force wom-
en to view an ultrasound of the fetus be-
fore having an abortion; bar private insur-
ance companies from covering abortions;
and add more restrictions to the already
burdensome parental notice requirements
for young women. These bills are part of
continuing attempts to restrict abortion
rights until abortions become completely
inaccessible to most women.
Women have been fighting for decades
to defend our right to control our lives. We
demand that our state lawmakers stand up


bills would attack women's right to choose


for women's rights and defeat these new-
est threats.
Abortion involves a woman's basic
right to control her own body and the di-
rection of her life; no restrictions on these
rights are reasonable.
It is a right connected to all the other
things in our lives. Women can't be on
equal footing with men if we are unable
to make life-altering decisions such as
whether or not to carry a pregnancy to
term. CIll:._:,,I', is physically danger-
ous, hard work that involves risks that
men never face, and women should be
able to decide whether we want to do it.
In our feminist group, many of us have
had serious pregnancy scares and some of
us, despite a lifetime of birth-control vigi-
lance, became pregnant when we didn't
want to be. The fact is it's a constant strug-


Kendra Vincent gle for women to
SpeakingOut keep from becoming
pregnant. No birth
control is 100 percent
effective; they all have side effects, and
men often refuse to wear condoms.
Women in Florida have faced similar
threats to our rights before. In October
1989, 10,000 demonstrators marched on
Tallahassee when then Gov. Bob Martinez
called a special session of the state legisla-
ture after vowing Florida would be the first
state to restrict abortion rights - .11.. ' -i a
Supreme Court decision. All of those bills
that sought to restrict a woman's right to
abortion died in committee because state
representatives listened to their constitu-
ents. Martinez was also resoundingly de-
feated in the next election.
Let history be a lesson to those cur-


rently in our state legislature. Women
will not stand for violations of our rights.
As the women's liberation group Red-
stockings said in 1971, women need to
go for what we really want. All women
should have the right to get an abortion at
any time for any reason, regardless of the
ability to pay and without waiting peri-
ods, consent laws or other hurdles. Women
should have the right to decide when and
if we will bear children.
Call your representatives and tell them
to vote no on House bills 97, 321, 415, 501,
747, 1127, 1179 and 1247.
Join Gainesville Women's Liberation, a
chapter of National Women's Liberation,

Obama's Libyan con
s the United States becomes more deeply involved
in its third war in a Muslim state, comparisons
with the war in Iraq are inevitably made.
Before any discussion of the two conflicts is made, it is
important to note that the differences between the wars
in both Libya and Iraq undeniably differentiate the two
conflicts.
President Barack Obama continued his foreign policy
trend of limiting U.S. combat involvement in Libya, while
former President George W. Bush overwhelmingly devoted
large numbers of troops to overthrowing Saddam Hussein
in Iraq - though sustainability concerns limited the number
of soldiers he committed as well.
There has been some international support for inter-
vention in Libya, although these resolutions have advo-
cated for a much narrower range of military options than
explored in Libya.
Even the Arab League vote has been regretted substan-
tially by those who voted for it.
The conflict in Libya has been overwhelmingly por-
trayed as a humanitarian conflict that will protect the
lives of civilians, while Iraq was sold to the international
community as a security action against the proliferation
of weapons of mass destruction primarily and a humani-
tarian action secondly.
The bombing of Libya is somewhat similar to the
NATO assault on Serbia, which saw the international
community intervening to stop the destructive trend of
regional politics.

flict separate from Bu
Bilal Ahmed It is worrying that despite suc-
cesses in the Slavic states, the United
UWire Nations is still skeptical about the
capacity of ethnic tensions to ease in
the region and these developments may be replicated in
Libya.
Obama sought to differentiate himself from his Repub-
lican peers by committing troops to Libya while confront-
ing real concerns in the state.
However, the basis for this commission is almost iden-
tical to that of Iraq.
It became increasingly clear that a victory for Col.
Muammar Gadhafi would set a powerful precedent in
the Arab world that autocratic oppression of rebellious
movements would lead to an end of political movements
against the dictators in question.
American intervention in Libya would therefore pre-
vent this eventuality and ally the United States with free-
dom and democracy in the Middle East, which is a similar
justification to that which motivated direct action in the
war in Iraq.
Iraq is a continuing military campaign, which has roots
in an attitude of self-admiring support for democracy that
both predated and survived the revelation that Saddam
Hussein did not in fact pursue weapons of mass destruc-
tion.
This support was meant to convey that the United
States was allied with the pro-democratic movements in
the Middle East, though they were certainly less notice-


she's Iraq campaign
able until a Tunisian man resolved to set himself ablaze.
The Libyan conflict is therefore another attempt to
place the United States in a favorable light in the Middle
East by offering itself as the vanguard of regional democ-
racy.
Because of this, it will have similarly complex prob-
lems later when these attempts run against American in-
terests of maintaining stability and the export of oil from
the region.
However, the most striking difference between Iraq
and Libya is that in Iraq, Bush at least attempted to main-
tain a semblance of democracy by lubricating the months
leading up to the beginning of the conflict with a public
relations campaign concerning the necessity of the con-
flict.
Obama, surprisingly enough, has begun the Libyan
campaign with little consultation from elected represen-
tatives, worrying, as there is a weak withdrawal strategy
from Libya similar to that of Iraq where thousands of
troops are still stationed.
Let us not forget that Iraq was originally supposed to
be a conflict that was concluded in a matter of months,
not years.
It seems reasonable to believe that Libya, while we are
stilltationed in Iraq, may become Obama's Iraq.
The gap of history is so minuscule between the two
conflicts that it would be inexcusable if this were the
case.

UF FOOTBALL

Elam looks to fill Black's spot as strong safety, leader


Florida sophomore strong safety Matt Elam is looking to assume the role departing Gator Ahmad Black
held as the defense's vocal leader. Elam recorded 22 tackles during his freshman season.


By TYLER JETT
Alligator Staff Writer
tjett@alligatororg

For the first time this spring,
Matt Elam fielded questions from
the media Monday.
His answers were quiet, bare-
ly even audible, which is why
the subject he touched on most
seemed ironic. Elam, a sopho-
more, will be tasked with replac-
ing all-Southeastern Conference
strong safety Ahmad Black, who
led the team with 108 tackles and
five interceptions last season.
But more important than his
statistical output, Black emerged
as the team leader in the first year
of the post-Tim Tebow era. At
UF's NFL pro day two weeks ago,
Will Muschamp called Black "an
ambassador to the program."
Black was the mouthpiece of
the Gators, both internally and to
the outside world. In September,
former coach Urban Meyer com-
pared Florida's chances of beating
Kentucky to a coin flip. Later that
week, Black joked about Meyer's
comments, sarcastically hinting
he had no idea if the Gators could
win. Then, at a press conference


two days after UF's 48-14 victory,
Black pulled out a coin, indicating
how .-'ij.-.. -..1, lucky his team
had been.
With little to salvage from a
disappointing 8-5 season, Meyer
frequently pointed to the im-
provement of Black, who evolved
from a freshman with an attitude
problem to someone Meyer called
a member of his family.
Now, Elam is looking to go
through a similar - albeit accel-
erated - transition.
"One of the things I need to
work on is being a leader," he
said, his voice hardly louder than
a whisper. "I'm not used to being
vocal. I might have to take on that
role."
As quiet as Elam was Monday,
one player assured everyone Elam
is a much different person while
wearing a helmet and pads.
"He doesn't have any prob-
lems with his speech," corner-
back Cody Riggs said. "That's
just Matt. Some people handle the
media different, but it only mat-
ters how he handles himself on
the field. When Matt makes a call,
I listen to him."

Undersized Florida will miss big


men, be guard-heavy in 2011-12


I hope Florida fans enjoyed the Gators'
low-post dominance Saturday more
than UF's players and coaches seem-
ingly did, because they won't be see-
ing much of it next year.
Despite Vernon Macklin's career-
high 25 points, Florida went away from
him in the final minutes of the team's
Elite Eight loss to Butler.
Alex Tyus was visibly upset in the
postgame press conference because he
didn't get enough late-game looks.
Commentators and analysts boasted
early and often about the Gators' all-
senior frontcourt of Macklin, Tyus and
Chandler Parsons. Yet they were ren-
dered ineffective - arguably by their
own coaches and teammates - in the
most important moment of their ca-
reers.

* SOUTH CAROLINA STIFLED UF'S
TOP FIVE HITTERS THIS WEEKEND.

By JESSE SIMONTON
Alligator Staff Writer
jslmonton@alligatororg

Before No. 4 Florida challenges No. 7
Florida State tonight at 7 in Jacksonville,
the heart of the Gators' order needs to
exorcise its demons.
During Florida's weekend series loss
to No. 3 South Carolina, its Nos. 1-5 hit-
ters combined for just five hits and nine
strikeouts in 51 at-bats.
While Nolan Fontana (.322), Daniel
Pigott (.394) and Preston Tucker (.343)
have swung the bats well this season,
they were stifled by South Carolina's
heavy arms.
Fontana recorded the lone RBI from
Florida's first five hitters with a sacrifice
fly in Saturday's 2-1 win.


The lone bright spot during the
weekend was their 10 walks.
Austin Maddox, the cleanup hitter,
and Brian Johnson, usually slated in the
five-hole, have been relatively quiet all
season.
As a freshman last year, Maddox was
the Gators' best power threat, smashing
17 home runs. But through 25 games
in 2011, he has just one
,homer and 10 RBIs.
"We're not going to
win many games when
Baseball we go 0 for 8 in our 3-4-
5 spots," coach Kevin
O'Sullivan said after
Sunday's 4-3 loss. "It's that simple.
They've got to produce. They've got to
swing the bat better.
"Our 3-4-5 guys are going to have to
hit. If we're going to want to win some
games in this league, they got to do a

Sturgis returns to practice after injury


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Staff Writer
achiang@alllgatororg

While the Gators were having trou-
ble getting rest preparing for the Crim-
son Tide last October, Caleb Sturgis
was kept awake for another reason.
"I think (my back injury felt the
worst) right before the Alabama
week," Sturgis said. "I just really
couldn't sleep or anything like that.
That was the point where I got every-
thing checked out."
Florida's kicker went on to miss the
fnal eight games of the season with
a herniated disk and a stress fracture
that was frst aggravated in a weight
lifting session before the season. While
Sturgis has yet to practice kickoffs
this spring, he is slowly making his
way back and is already kicking held
goals.
However, the injury has had linger-
ing effects. Sturgis has cut down on
weight room work and the number of
kicks he attempts in practice to limit
the strain on his back.
The injury impacted Sturgis even
before he was sidelined. He knocked
in just two of four held goals in four
games before punter Chas Henry flled
in for him.
"(Not being able to play) was ob-
viously really rough," Sturgis said. "I
never really in my life had an injury
before that kept me out. It was some-
thing new for me."
0-LINE ADJUSTING: Learning the new
offense hasn't just been tough on Flor-
ida's skill players. The offensive line
has been asked to make a change from
last season, too.
On top of losing Mike Pouncey,
Carl Johnson and Marcus Gilbert, the
group has had to adjust to the new
coaching staff's scheme this spring.
Offensive coordinator Charlie Weis'
system demands that the offensive line
carry more responsibility.


"Everything is different from last
year," right guard Jon Halapio said.
"Our offensive line coach is not only
teaching us techniques, but now we are


learning the entire -....rl: :II play. We
have to know what the quarterback is
thinking, running back is thinking and
wide receiver is thinking."


UF kicker Caleb Sturgis only played in four games last year due to a herniated
disk and stress fracture in his back, but he returned to practice this spring.

Elam keeps quiet

about Meyer's

departure, says

he gets along

with new staff
FOOTBALL, from page 13

Even if Elam can emulate Black vocally, re-
placing him as the team's most consistent tack-
ler could be problematic. While he saw more
game action than most members of Florida's
hyped freshman class last year, his 22 tackles
ranked 14th on the team. He also broke up one
pass and recovered a fumble.
Perhaps more so than any other player in
the 2010 recruiting class, Elam signed with the
Gators because of his connection to Meyer.
Elam, who was among the first fve play-
ers to verbally commit to UF as a high school
junior, actually decommitted from the Gators
in December 2009 when Meyer
first stepped down. After Mey-
er assured him that he was in
fact returning to Florida, Elam
Football recommitted about a month be-
fore National Signing Day.
When asked how he felt
about Meyer leaving, Elam just smiled and
said, "I don't want to talk about that."
He proceeded to say he was getting along
well with Muschamp and the rest of the new
coaching staff.
Just I. .- 11 they get along with him, how-
ever, could depend greatly on whether Elam
can fill Black's shoes. After a year of serving as
Black's understudy, Elam feels confident the
transition will be smooth.
"He helped me a lot," Elam said. "I learned
a lot from him: the way he practiced, the way
he handled his situations, things like that."

Gators men in disappointing ninth after Day 2

U FLORIDA IS 17 STROKES BEHIND THE LEADER of Bank Vongvanij. The two-time Southeastern Conference will be very important for Florida.

that even the best players can play poorly on occasion." 15.
By ALEX PECKHAM Alexander added he is "pretty sure that (Vongvanij) will Alexander didn't seem concerned about his team's plal

The Florida men's golf team came into the Hootie at Bulls Bulls Bay Invitational are likely finished, Tuesday's round said.
Bay Collegiate hoping to get one last tournament victory
before moving on to postseason play, but that goal seems


nearly impossible now.
The Gators find themselves in ninth place, 17 strokes be-
hind tournament leader Augusta State after Monday's ac-
tion in Awendaw, S.C.
Florida shot a combined 8-over-par on Day 2, bringing
its score to 12-over for the tournament.
Sophomore Phillip Choi and junior Michael Furci were
the two bright spots for the Gators, as both turned in 1-un-
der-par 70s.
Choi's under-par round was due to a solid back nine that
included two birdies and no bogeys. Choi is tied for 10th
overall.
Furci's stellar showing was a welcome sign for the junior,
who has had trouble cracking the starting lineup all year.
The DePaul transfer not only impressed with his play but
also his resiliency, as Monday's round came on the heels of
a discouraging 6-over-par 77 on Sunday.
UF coach Buddy Alexander included Furci in the "cou-
ple of guys who played really well today" and added that
Michael's round was "very encouraging."
Unfortunately for the Gators, the rest of the squad was
unable to replicate their success.
Senior Bank Vongvanij had a disappointing round on
Monday, as did sophomores Tyler McCumber and Tommy
Mou.
McCumber, whose game had progressed nicely in last
week's Schenkel Invitational and to start the Hootie, shot
a 5-over-par 76. The sophomore struggled on his way to a
3-over-par front nine but regained his form before a double-
bogey 5 on the par-3 12th set him back to 5-over.
Mou has had trouble putting together a complete round
all year, and that trend continued Monday when he shot a
5-over-par 76.
Mou's day was done in by a seven-hole stretch on the
front nine that included five bogeys.
The biggest surprise for the Gators was the high score

hit a weak ground ball to first,"
he said. "You got to turn on it.
You got to barrel up and do some-
thing with it. We're not doing
a whole lot in offensive counts
right now."
O'Sullivan hinted at possible
lineup changes after Sunday's
defeat, but said he would rather
rest on it than make an announce-
ment right after a loss.

RANDALL THROWING LIGHTS OUT:
Although the Gators' lineup had
issues this weekend, their right-
handed ace did not.
Hudson Randall continued his
outstanding work Saturday, toss-
ing a gem in his first-career com-
plete game as Florida won 2-1.
The sophomore from Atlanta
is 4-0 and has a miniscule 0.66
ERA.
In two conference starts
against top-five competition (LSU
and South Carolina), Randall has
thrown 15.2 innings, without al-


lowing a run or a walk.
"I just try to be as competitive
as possible on the mound and
be a bulldog out there," Randall
said. "I don't strike many people
out. I pitch to contact. Using the
defense, using our team, that's
what I do."
Through six starts this season,
Randall has thrown 40.2 innings,
striking out 25 and walking just
one.
Randall was dominant in his
Saturday start, as he used pin-
point control to retire the final 19
Gamecocks.
South Carolina coach Ray Tan-
ner was extremely impressed,
comparing Randall to Greg Mad-
dux.
"He's very, very good," Tan-
ner said. "He's so efficient. He
doesn't waste a lot of pitches."

ETC.: Anthony DeSclafani (3-0,
1.12) is scheduled to toe the rub-
ber tonight against Florida State.
In the junior's last start against
the Seminoles, he allowed five
runs in the first inning without
retiring a batter. ... The game
will be played at the Baseball
Grounds of Jacksonville, home of
the Florida Marlins' Double-A af-
filiate.

ADAM, from page 13

in Saturday's loss against a hopelessly un-
dersized -I .ll.1 . s.. frontcourt.
Don't get me wrong: Young is excep-
tionally gifted and will be a great NBA
player someday, and I think Donovan will
eventually be proven correct in his com-
parison of Murphy to former Florida for-
ward Matt Bonner.
But they're not Macklin, Tyus and Par-
sons.
Those three, the surest things on Flori-
da's roster, will be gone.
Erving Walker and Kenny Boynton led
the Gators with 14.6 and 14.2 points per
game, respectively. But they did so on a
combined 811 shots. The frontcourt trio
combined for 911.
As much as people criticized Tyus for
his career-low scoring average of 9.1, he


did so while playing the fewest minutes of
any member of the starting five, hitting 50
percent of his shots and taking 106 fewer
attempts than Erving Walker - 173 fewer
than Boynton.
Macklin, meanwhile, was Florida's
most offensively efficient player, making a
staggering 59.3 percent of his attempts.
And everyone knows Parsons took
home the SEC Player of the Year award
this season, becoming one of the most ver-
satile players in the country. His 2-for-9
shooting Saturday isn't indicative of the
season he had.
Next year, without that trio, it will be
almost unfair to say Florida will be guard-
heavy.
Walker and Boynton will likely con-
tinue to shoulder the load and step into
increased leadership roles.
But they might be the third and fourth


best guards on the Gators' roster.
Mike Rosario, the Rutgers transfer of-
ten forgotten about during the season, will
suit up for Florida next year.
It's safe to assume Donovan is excited
to utilize the 6-foot-3 guard's ability to
create and put the ball in the basket - he
scored 16.7 points per game in the Big East
in 2009-10.
And perhaps most intriguing, the
Gators will add super-recruit Brad Beal.
The 6-foot-4 shooting guard from St.
Louis (Mo.) Chaminade does a little bit of
everything - and he does it all well.
It will be impossible to keep him from
playing significant minutes immediately.
Plus, barring another rush of postsea-
son transfers, Florida will return Casey
Rather and Scottle Wilbekin in the back-
court.
Wilbekin certainly performed far above


and way beyond expectations, especially as
he became the team's second-best on-the-
ball defender, while Prather drew a lot of
praise for his athleticism, even if he didn't
get a chance to show it on the court.
That leaves Young, Murphy, Will Yeg-
uete, a no-longer-redshirted Cody Larson
and three-star freshman Walter Pitchford
in the frontcourt.
The Gators will certainly have enough
talented guards to carry them to another
successful season next year, and Young
and Murphy are capable of developing
into a reliable starting frontcourt.
But they won't have a ton of experi-
enced big men.
Not a whole lot of known quantities.
Not many sure things.
They're all on their way out the door.
Hopefully the Gators enjoyed them while
they could.


1. Kenny Boynton, So.
With a third-place finish in the Week 11 rankings, Boynton broke a
three-way tie atop the season-long standings. The sophomore guard
didn't lead the team in any statistical category except free-throw
percentage (82.3 percent), but our voters gave Boynton some extra
respect for being the team's best defender. The sophomore also came
up 1-bi; in the NCAA Tournament, holding BYU's Jim-
/ner Fredette to 11-of-29 shooting from the field.
Boynton was a potent scoring threat in the UF
offense, notching 14.2 points per game, good
for second on the team. He was also reliable,
./ reaching double figures in scoring in each of the
team's final 16 games despite a 38.5 field goal
percentage and 33.1 three-point percentage.

T-2. Chandler Parsons, Sr.
Parsons was named the SEC Player of the Year after leading the Ga-
tors in rebounds and assists per game with 7.8 and 3.8, respectively.
Regardless of the national praise he received, the senior forward only
tied for second in our standings because he finished fourth on the
team in scoring at 11.3 points per game and under-
whelmed in his final games. Although he put to-
gether solid marks of 48 percent shooting from
the field and 36.8 percent from three-point
range, he struggled at the line, hitting just 55.7
percent of his attempts. While the forward was
a valuable presence as a senior leader, he had a
propensity for disappearing for long stretches.


SI.fc'T CTTC T-2. Ervill Walker, Jr.


U EII U ~E EI U ~


4. Vernon Macklin, Sr.
Macklin came into his own as a low-post scoring threat during his
senior season, finishing third on the team with 11.6 points per game.
The center shot a team-leading 59.3 percent from the field with his
nearly unstoppable hook shot from the field. Despite his 6-foot-io
stature, Macklin finished third on the team with 5.4
rebounds per game. He also ended the year third
in blocks with 26, and his minutes were limited
in clutch situations by his 45.1 free-throw per-
centage. Still, the senior center gained respect
from his teammates for fighting through nag-
ging injuries and providing a humorous presence
in the locker room.


Walker finished tied for second with Chandler Parsons in the season-
long standings with 16 points, but the junior guard received first-place
honors in four of our weekly polls. Walker was the team's leading
scorer at 14.6 points per game and provided a spark to an offense that
was sometimes stagnant and out of sync. The junior scored in a vari-
ety of ways, recording 148 points from two-point
range, 237 points from three-point range and a
team-best 154 points from the free-throw line.
Walker was Florida's primary ball handler, but
he finished the season second with 125 assists
while leading the Gators with 87 turnovers.
Still, Walker was often called upon to take, and
usually make, clutch shots.

5. Alex Tyus, Sr.
Tyus finished the season playing better than anyone on the team,
recording double-doubles in the team's final two games. This included
an outstanding 19-point, 17-rebound showing in the team's Sweet 16
victory over BYU. But up to that point in the season, Tyus had been a
relative disappointment, averaging just 8.6 points
and 5.7 rebounds per game prior to the final two
contests despite his superior talent and athleti-
cism. Still, the senior forward shot an impres-
sive 50 percent for the season and finished
second on UF with 29 blocks.

TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2011 More boots than suits at cowboy church 0 THE CONGREGATION MEETS THURSDAY NIGHTS IN WILLISTON. By ALEX ORLANDO Alligator Writer When the whip cracks, they know they're in the presence of the Lord. A group of boys spitting chew around a fence post glances over. In a nearby field, 9-year-old Hunter Holmes and 6-year-old Emory Weins, both in matching plaid shirts and cowboy hats, break from herding fellow elementary schoolers and perk up their ears. Older folks, still finishing their dinner of pulled pork and baked beans, put down their forks and make their way to the pavilion. Hats fly off heads as the Rev. Billy Keith begins the prayer offerings. Instead of pews, the congregation sits on picnic benches. For an offering basket, they use a 10-gallon hat. Rather than a choir, Christian country singer Hunter Erwin sings "I Found Jesus at a Walmart." This is cowboy church. In a rodeo arena just off S.R. 41 in Williston, the rugged and the denim-decked have met every Thursday at 7 p.m. for five years to hear sermons from Keith. He's a burly man with a thick goatee and an even thicker Southern accent. His work-hardened hands wrap all the way around yours as he greets you with, "How y'all doin'?" In 2006, Keith left Otter Creek Baptist Alex Orlando/ Alligator Church in Williston to start his own church. Christian country singer Hunter Erwin leads a chorus of "I Found Jesus at a Walmart" during a service at a Cross Brand Cowboy Originally, he didn't figure himself to be the Church in Williston.

The U.S. Navy pilot and UF graduate had been previously stationed in Okinawa, Japan, where he sat through plenty of small shakes and tremors. But earlier this month, when the rocking in the 35-year-old's base room in Atsugi persisted past the short seconds he was used to, he knew something was out of whack. "It was disorienting," said Berryhill, who graduated in December with a master's degree in chemical engineering. "It took me 20 seconds to realize,'OK, this is a lot worse than the tremors I've experienced before."' Berryhill attempted to get out of his room, where he was completing some work on his computer. The shaking was so bad he almost fell down. He made it to a nearby stairwell, where he clung onto the railing for safety. Then, just like that, it was over. "This is a lot worse than the tremors I've experienced before."

About half of Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park's bison, and possibly its horses, will be removed from the park next winter. The final plan for removing the animals was released by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection last week, about six months after the plan was announced. In previous interviews, department staff said the animals will be removed due to concerns of inbreeding and worries that the animals will Local escape into residential arNews eas. The final plan differs slightly from the draft plan, which went up against public scrutiny in a citizen meeting on Nov. 30.

For eight hours on Sunday, the scavenger sat with its head inside a peanut butter jar while perched atop a Long Island utility pole. The unusual sight brought out dozens of curious residents on a Ronkonkoma street. Children quickly nicknamed him Skippy. Newsday says Debbie Sullivan spotted the raccoon outside her house at 7 a.m. She called Suffolk police, the town of Islip and the state Department of Environmental Conservation. They all said little could be done. The raccoon's ordeal finally ended around 3 p.m. when a crew from the Long Island Power Authority came to its rescue. The jar fell off as they used a pole to grab the animal.

TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 3 UF buildings lack funding 0 DUE TO THE DEFICIT, THE STATE CANNOT MATCH DONATIONS TO HELP PAY FOR CONSTRUCTION. By HANNAH WINSTON Alligator Writer For the third year in a row, $130 million in donations for UF won't be matched by the state, and an estimated state deficit of more than $3 billion looms as the culprit. The construction of 15 buildings, including a Chemical Engineering Building and Graduate Studies building, would have been paid for by the Alec P. Courtelis University Facility Enhancement Challenge Grant Program. In the program, $29.4 million from university donors would have been matched by the state for a total of nearly r58.8 million. Leslie Brain, associate vice president of the University of Florida Foundation, a nonprofit organization that invests and raises money for UF, said all the proposed new buildings are necessary and highly anticipated. "Our donors and benefactors are frustrated because they want to see the projects come through," she said. She said while the university does not have the money now, it remains committed to the projects. "We've delayed three years and construction costs have gone up," she said. Some buildings were given the go-ahead when the university took out loans and thought the money would come through. "Our donors and benefactors are frustrated because they want to see the projects come through." Leslie Brain Associate VP of the University of Florida Foundation Construction on Hough Hall finished last fall and the Harn Museum of Art's Cofrin Asian Art Wing is expected to be completed next spring. The university is still waiting for state funding to pay off loans. The Major Gifts Trust Fund Matching Grant Program would have matched more than $101 million in donations that could have gone to a number of projects at UF, according to Janine Sikes, spokeswoman for the university. "We understand that budgets are tight at this point," she said. NYT still free on campus By JESSICA KEGU Alligator Contributing Writer The New York Times began charging users to view online content Monday. The Times print edition is currently available for free on campus, and there are already plans to extend the college readership program to digital subscriptions, according to an email from Eileen Murphy, vice president of corporate communications for The Times. Readers who do not digitally subscribe will still be able to access articles a number of ways that don't count toward the new 20 articles per month limit. If a reader is linked to an article through a social media website, the view does not count toward the monthly limit, according to The Times. Similar rules are in place for search engines like Google, but there will be a daily limit imposed on articles found through certain major search engines. The new digital subscriptions are available in three different packages, which range from $15 per month to $35 per month. Readers who already subscribe to the home delivery edition will also have unlimited onAround line access, which Gainesville they can register for online. UF professor Mindy McAdams said she thinks the fair conditions of the article limits for non-subscribers will help keep the readership from dramatically decreasing. Murphy said libraries will eventually be covered under group accounts, which they are working to make available in the next several months. EMPOER YO5 P BOSINESS.

4, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2011 Area unemployment rate drops By MORGAN WATKINS Alligator Writer While many people are still on the job hunt in Gainesville, some of their fellow unemployed peers have landed paid positions that have contributed to a nearly onepoint drop in the area's unemployment rate in February. According to data released by the state this week, Alachua County's unemployment rate dipped to 7.7 percent in February, an improvement from the 8.6 percent figure in January In January, 11,234 people in the area were unemployed out of a labor force of 130,932. In February, that number dropped to 10,137 unemployed people out of a labor force of 131,083 people. The Gainesville area, which is comprised of Alachua and Gilchrist counties, boasted the lowest unemployment rate of 23 Florida metro areas with a 7.8 percent rate for February, according to the state report. "Gainesville is overcoming and surpassing the old idea that we're not a business-friendly community." Susan Bottcher District 3 City Commission candidate Gainesville Mayor Craig Lowe posted on his Twitter: "February unemployment numbers show that #Gainesville is moving forward!" His sentiment was echoed by Susan Bottcher, a candidate for the Distinct 3 City Commission seat in Gainesville. She said the improved unemployment rate showed how Gainesville is gradually becoming a more business-friendly area. "Gainesville is overcoming and surpassing the old idea that we're not a business-friendly community," Bottcher said. "I think we have to keep our eye on the ball and continue to make sure our local government works with local businesses." Bottcher's opponent in theApril 12 run-off election for District 3, Rob Zeller, said many Gainesville residents still face the harsh reality of being unable to feed their families each day. With so many people still unemployed, Zeller said there is much work to be done to improve the area's private sector to ensure they would be able to find jobs. State will try to put bison in sanctuary PRAIRIE, from page 1 son, leaving about 30 females and sterilized male calves to continue roaming the prairie. This is a change from the draft plan, which stated only 15 female bison would stay in the prairie. The male horses, which are part of a herd of about 30 Florida cracker horses, will either be removed or sterilized and left to roam. The Florida Cracker Cattle herd will remain at Hickory Ranch, the park's cattle ranch. The plan states that the animals will be removed but does not say exactly how or who will take them. Park manager David Jowers refused to comment. Kirstin Lock, public information officer for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, said in an email that the details of the removal have not been determined, but the next step is to draft a request for offers. It says the "first preference" is to put the bison in an animal sanctuary. If sanctuaries will not take the males, then the park will find other solutions. She said the park will screen everyone who applies to take the animals to ensure that the bison are treated humanely. To remove the animals, the plan states the park will need to hire a contractor to round them up. Some protesters of the plan are Around concerned that the bison will be killed for their meat, an issue which is not specifically addressed in the plan. Others are worried the park won't have as many visitors if the animals are removed. "You can bet that 70 to 80 percent of those people are there to see the bison, the horses and the birds," said Chuck Littlewood, a wildlife photographer who visits the park weekly. Berryhill was stationed at Atsugi during the March 11 earthquake JAPAN, from page 1 er," he said. "We saw the tsunami and it was very surreal." It almost seemed like we were watching a movie. It was humbling watching the cars and the buildings being taken by the force of the water." Within the hour, Berryhill called his wife, Katie McGoogan, and sent a mass email to friends to let them know he was OK. McGoogan, an employee at Shands, said her husband called her just before she had time to panic, as she woke up to the news on the radio with her 7 a.m. alarm. In a span of a couple days after the disaster struck, Berryhill's Navy squadron, along with other squadrons from Pennsylvania, began mission work to help those in need. That Friday, Berryhill went on a mission to distribute 21,000 pounds of food to the survivors, which they dropped off at another air base to be trucked down to the disaster areas. In the Navy's missions, supplies ranging from seismology gear to toilet paper to blankets were delivered. However, Rod Turbak, Berryhill's commanding officer, said that Japan's government never formally asked for the help. "Everybody wants to reach out and lend a helping hand," he said. "People donated things. They piled up quite fast." Part of the cargo delivered by the Navy was from donations. The rest were from supplies that were on hand. While flying on the relief missions, Berryhill and his crew were given radiation detectors to determine their nuclear contamination resulting from the destruction. Based on the readings, the crew hadn't been contaminated. Now he's back in Gainesville with his wife and 14-monthold child. But Berryhill, who had lived in Japan for three years, said he still carries a personal attachment to the area. "I hold a special place in my heart for the Japanese people," he said. "This is a huge tragedy. It was an honor to serve and assist our friends in time of need." bpeciai to me migaor The VR-62 "Nomads" squadron prepares a C-130 Hercules transport plane for 21,000 pounds of Japanese relief supplies.

Scott going after bad docs, pill mills THE ASSOCIATED PRESS TALLAHASSEE -A new Florida strike force will target unscrupulous doctors and pharmaceutical manufacturers illegally distributing prescription drugs to addicts and drug dealers, Gov. Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi said Monday. Scott said the project would be paid for with $800,000 in unused federal grant money. He noted that 98 of the 100 leading dispensers of these drugs nationally are doctors who reside in Florida. He's also bringing in several other state agencies to help the Florida Department of Law Enforcement with the investigation into the trafficking of prescription drugs and socalled pill mills. The pill mills have given the state a deserved but unwanted reputation as a haven for anyone looking for such drugs -most often the highly addictive pain-killer oxycodone. More oxycodone is distributed illegally in Florida than all other states combined. Most of News the illegal activity in Florida is in the areas surrounding Miami, Tampa and Orlando, where 126 million oxycodone pills have been distributed. "For too long in Florida, drugs have ruined lives and threatened our safety," Scott said. "We should be able to figure out how to stop this." Scott said FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey will direct the strike force, which is aimed at eliminating the "flamingo express" -the nickname given to the pipeline of illicit prescription drugs that flow out of Florida to other states, most of which have prescription monitoring systems. Scott, however, has proposed the state scrap a planned database for tracking prescription drugs, claiming privacy concerns. Bondi is opposed to Scott's suggestion and trying to work with him to find an alternative. The strike force with also be assisted by the Florida Highway Patrol, investigators from the Division of Insurance Fraud, sheriff's departments and community police forces. The Department of Health and the Agency for Health Care Administration will provide regulatory and licensing personnel. The pill mill issue has been Bondi's primary focus since she was sworn in as attorney general less than three months ago.

The church has between 120 and 160 members COWBOY, from page 1 pastor type. But a few months into organizing the church, he said, the Lord put the burden on him to preach. Since then, he's gained 120 to 160 followers. He gets more every year at churchsponsored rodeos. The church is part of the Cross Brand Cowboy Church network of similar churches scattered around the continent. The church is informal and nondenominational. Keith says that's how he likes it. "Everything that should be happening in a church atmosphere is happening," he said. Since starting the church, Keith has performed two baptisms, both in a cow trough out back. He's also led two weddings with the brides wearing little white dresses. The grooms put on their best tuxedo tops and blue jeans. Keith said informal events like those draw his target audience: day-working cowboys. Usually, they are the most reluctant ones to attend. "They don't like to be around people," he said. "They just like to be around their horses and cows." Now, cowboys make up three-fourths of the congregation. Mickey Thornton is one of them. He's about 5 feet 7 inches tall and built like a grizzly bear. He's usually seen wearing clay-caked Wranglers, dusty work boots and a camouflage ball cap. The only clean thing on his body is a tiny pewter cross that hangs between the top two buttons of his flannel work shirt. On an average day's worth of work at Whitehurst Cattle Company, he drives 500 head of cattle, tagging ears and castrating bulls. He sees the sun rise and set while he's in the saddle. But he still makes time for church. Thornton started coming two years ago when he saw the sign on S.R. 41 and "came in to see what's goin' on." He kept making time every week and works now as the arena team leader for the rodeos. That, he says, is what got him out of the North Georgia bars and into barrel races, roundups and prayers. He leads a five-minute prayer before every rodeo event. "That may be the only word of God a cowboy ever gets," he said. "Whether you need to put Christ in a cowboy or cowboy in a Christian." John Young joined the church after coming to one of Thornton's rodeos. Young has been riding his whole life. "Well, not all of it," he said. "It ain't over yet.", He's the son of a Baptist preacher and chose here over any of the area's churches. "Sometimes you just don't fit in other places," he said. The rodeo also brought in Glenn Bush. He brought his 12-year-old grandson for mutton bustin' (a rodeo event for children riding sheep) and got to rr Alex Orlando / Alligator Roger Chilton bows his head during the closing prayer at Cross Brand Cowboy Church.

TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Research links energy drinks with health risks By BRIANNA DONE Alligator Contributing Writer A review of the effects of high-caffeine energy drinks on children and young adults suggests they may be linked to health risks as serious as heart palpitations, high blood pressure, cardiac arrest and death. The review, published in February in Pediatrics, the official journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, analyzed scientific reports in medical journals, newspaper articles and regulatory steps taken in other countries regarding high-caffeine energy drinks. Officials with the American Beverage Association, however, said the study presents some misinformation about energy drinks, claiming an average drink contains only half the caffeine of a cup of coffeehouse coffee. "It's a hot college topic," said Shannon Kirkpatrick, health promotion specialist for GatorWell Health Promotion Services. "I have had a lot of students ask me about energy drinks. They have packed schedules and think it's good to find something that provides a boost." "I have had a lot of students ask me about energy drinks. They have packed schedules and think it's good to find something that provides a boost." Shannon Kirkpatrick Health Promotion Specialist The study defines energy drinks as drinks that "contain caffeine, taurine, sugars and sweeteners, herbal supplements, and other ingredients and are distinct from sports drinks and vitamin waters." The study concluded that 31 percent of 12to 17-year-olds and 34 percent of 18to 24-year-olds reported regularly consuming energy drinks. "I have them about every other week," political science freshman Max Goldstein said. "It keeps me awake for tailgates .and when I have to be up all day." An average energy drink contains 70 to 80 milligrams of caffeine per 8-ounce serving, about three times the concentration of cola drinks. Energy drinks are classified as dietary supplements, so the U.S. Food and Drug Administration cannot limit their caffeine content, as they do with juice and soft drinks, which are categorized as food. In addition, U.S. poison centers have not yet been able to monitor the number of overdoses associated with energy drinks because these episodes are classified as "caffeine" or "multi-substance exposure." But Kirkpatrick said overdosing is possible. "Dehydration, vomiting, upset stomach, irregular heartbeat and, as seen lately in the media, even coma and death can occur," she said.

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2011 Academic Cred Professors shouldn't be "strictly business" Professors might want to rethink how their students perceive them. In a study published in the March issue of Learning, Media and Technology, researchers found that professors who reveal a bit of their personal lives are viewed as being more credible and more caring by students. So maybe the notion we have that a "strictly business" demeanor is a good way to appear focused and knowledgeable is wrong. It's understandable: Students should learn from a professor, but knowing that we're seeing and interacting with a human being puts us at ease and in a better position to process information. We generally don't mind hearing faculty go on tangents about previous work experience, their travels or -for those of us who have taken microeconomics -Leonardo's Pizza. Sometimes, we appreciate the break in the monotony and the chance to connect with our professors. There's a balance to be struck, of course, so that we aren't inundated with hour-long epics involving our instructors' pets, but professors should let that academic and professional facade slip here and there. Mentioning your family or giving a personal opinion on a subject sometimes helps us more than sticking to stripped-down facts. Remember: There are reasons robots haven't replaced our faculty. We Heart the OED It may come as a surprise, but we aren't language purists. If you heard the way we talk around the office at times, it's hard to fathom a coherent product resulting from our efforts. Even so, we're a little dismayed at the Oxford English Dictionary's choices for newest words. We saw "LOL" and "OMG" coming; their usage has extended even to news headlines. However, we're wondering who thought including "heart" as a verb was a good idea. We usually hear this use of the word in a sarcastic context, as if the speaker is too current to say the word "love." The literal reading of a pictograph is too silly to be immortalized on paper. For instance, doesn't "I heart you" sound just as sincere as those other three words? In light of this inclusion, we've brewed up a little theory on these ridiculous additions. How many people still break out the OED -even in its online version -to look up a word? It's losing ground, but one of the ways to flag down some public notice is to elect flash-in-the-pan words that have no place in a dictionary to go into the book. We hear the same story ever year. The annual additions generally include a few legitimate entries needed to keep the dictionary up to date sprinkled among the ludicrous ones needed to stir up some buzz. Here's to hoping it's a cry for help from a respected institution rather than terrible decision-making. a l l e independent fo rida 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 include the author's name, classification and phone number Names will be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105 W University A or send them to PO Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

If you know only a few letters or the beginning of a word, most smartphones will automatically suggest multiple options for what you were looking for. Efficient? Yes. Convenient? Yes. Simply astounding technology? Definitely. Recently, however, I made a shocking discovery; I can no longer spell. Any word with minimal complication, even one I use almost every day, now presents a new challenge if not presented in a technological medium. When asked to spell "across" by my roommate, I found my forehead scrunched in an attempt to remember how many C's and S's there are. Even as I just typed the word "across" in this column, I spelled it "accross" because I knew Microsoft Word would conveniently provide the autocorrected text. Cellphone technology and word processing functions have become such a crutch that we find ourselves less engaged in the mechanical intricacies of our work due to the ease of perfecting them with such functions. Always a reader as a child, my vocabulary, spelling and grammar were accelerated. Now, years later, I've found myself crippled by advanced technologies that will do a majority of my thinking for me. People tend to only be as intelligent as they have to be. Average people in the world (this excludes those involved in intricately specialized professions such as computer programming) seemingly fall victim to technology which can "think" for them. Spell a word wrong? Just right click and select the correct option. Need a more scholarly word for a paper? The synonym function will help you. All of these mindless operations allow us to stare blankly at the screen while our mouse perfects our papers and essays. Of course, nothing is perfect we all know not to rely on Spell Check -but many functions, Laura Ellermeyer such as Thesaurus and even Auletters@aIligatororg toComplete, operate virtually flawlessly to ease projects which would have required much more thought 20 years ago. But does it even matter? How much important writing do we even do off of the computer anyway? Anything handwritten is usually brief and in note form -and certainly not meant to be professional or scholarly. When typing papers or business documents, as long as we know a skeleton of a difficult word we can easily get the correct word inserted into the correct space. It's a rare occurrence when we are required to accurately spell words on the spot. Clearly, technology is not dumbing us down, or we wouldn't have the constant advancements that we do, but are the efforts of the programmers and inventors slowly encroaching more and more on our brains? It's a cycle, as new technology allows new information that in return provides new technology, but for the freeloaders such as myself, how do we halt total reliance on these conveniences? Depending on modern, communicationimproving luxuries is like relying on a calculator without understanding math: It may yield a correct answer most of the time, but it will eventually fail if you don't know where to put the parenthesis.

TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2011E ALLIGATOR, 7 Florida House omen's rights are under attack Florida lawmakers have filed a bill that would make it a felony for doctors to perform abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy -a blatant violation of women's rights under Roe v. Wade. Other bills include provisions that would force women to view an ultrasound of the fetus before having an abortion; bar private insurance companies from covering abortions; and add more restrictions to the already burdensome parental notice requirements for young women. These bills are part of continuing attempts to restrict abortion rights until abortions become completely inaccessible to most women. Women have been fighting for decades to defend our right to control our lives. We demand that our state lawmakers stand up bills would attack women's right to choose for women's rights and defeat these newest threats. Abortion involves a woman's basic right to control her own body and the direction of her life; no restrictions on these rights are reasonable. It is a right connected to all the other things in our lives. Women can't be on equal footing with men if we are unable to make life-altering decisions such as whether or not to carry a pregnancy to term. Childbearing is physically dangerous, hard work that involves risks that men never face, and women should be able to decide whether we want to do it. In our feminist group, many of us have had serious pregnancy scares and some of us, despite a lifetime of birth-control vigilance, became pregnant when we didn't want to be. The fact is it's a constant strugKendra Vincent gle for women to Speaking Out keep from becoming pregnant. No birth control is 100 percent effective; they all have side effects, and men often refuse to wear condoms. Women in Florida have faced similar threats to our rights before. In October 1989, 10,000 demonstrators marched on Tallahassee when then Gov. Bob Martinez called a special session of the state legislature after vowing Florida would be the first state to restrict abortion rights following a Supreme Court decision. All of those bills that sought to restrict a woman's right to abortion died in committee because state representatives listened to their constituents. Martinez was also resoundingly defeated in the next election. Let history be a lesson to those currently in our state legislature. Women will not stand for violations of our rights. As the women's liberation group Redstockings said in 1971, women need to go for what we really want. All women should have the right to get an abortion at any time for any reason, regardless of the ability to pay and without waiting periods, consent laws or other hurdles. Women should have the right to decide when and if we will bear children. Call your representatives and tell them to vote no on House bills 97, 321, 415, 501, 747, 1127, 1179 and 1247.

Obama's Libyan con the United States becomes more deeply involved in its third war in a Muslim state, comparisons with the war in Iraq are inevitably made. Before any discussion of the two conflicts is made, it is important to note that the differences between the wars in both Libya and Iraq undeniably differentiate the two conflicts. President Barack Obama continued his foreign policy trend of limiting U.S. combat involvement in Libya, while former President George W. Bush overwhelmingly devoted large numbers of troops to overthrowing Saddam Hussein in Iraq -though sustainability concerns limited the number of soldiers he committed as well. There has been some international support for intervention in Libya, although these resolutions have advocated for a much narrower range of military options than explored in Libya. Even the Arab League vote has been regretted substantially by those who voted for it. The conflict in Libya has been overwhelmingly portrayed as a humanitarian conflict that will protect the lives of civilians, while Iraq was sold to the international community as a security action against the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction primarily and a humanitarian action secondly. The bombing of Libya is somewhat similar to the NATO assault on Serbia, which saw the international community intervening to stop the destructive trend of regional politics. flict separate from Bu Bilal Ahmed It is worrying that despite sucUWire cesses in the Slavic states, the United U__ ire _Nations is still skeptical about the capacity of ethnic tensions to ease in the region and these developments may be replicated in Libya. Obama sought to differentiate himself from his Republican peers by committing troops to Libya while confronting real concerns in the state. However, the basis for this commission is almost identical to that of Iraq. It became increasingly clear that a victory for Col. Muammar Gadhafi would set a powerful precedent in the Arab world that autocratic oppression of rebellious movements would lead to an end of political movements against the dictators in question. American intervention in Libya would therefore prevent this eventuality and ally the United States with freedom and democracy in the Middle East, which is a similar justification to that which motivated direct action in the war in Iraq. Iraq is a continuing military campaign, which has roots in an attitude of self-admiring support for democracy that both predated and survived the revelation that Saddam Hussein did not in fact pursue weapons of mass destruction. This support was meant to convey that the United States was allied with the pro-democratic movements in the Middle East, though they were certainly less noticesh's Iraq campaign able until a Tunisian man resolved to set himself ablaze. The Libyan conflict is therefore another attempt to place the United States in a favorable light in the Middle East by offering itself as the vanguard of regional democracy. Because of this, it will have similarly complex problems later when these attempts run against American interests of maintaining stability and the export of oil from the region. However, the most striking difference between Iraq and Libya is that in Iraq, Bush at least attempted to maintain a semblance of democracy by lubricating the months leading up to the beginning of the conflict with a public relations campaign concerning the necessity of the conflict. Obama, surprisingly enough, has begun the Libyan campaign with little consultation from elected representatives, worrying, as there is a weak withdrawal strategy from Libya similar to that of Iraq where thousands of troops are still stationed. Let us not forget that Iraq was originally supposed to be a conflict that was concluded in a matter of months, not years. It seems reasonable to believe that Libya, while we are stilltationed in Iraq, may become Obama's Iraq. The gap of history is so minuscule between the two conflicts that it would be inexcusable if this were the case.

Sports TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2011 ALLIGATOR www.aIligatorSports.org Elam looks to fill Black's spot as strong safety, leader Florida sophomore strong safety Matt Elam is looking to assume the role departing Gator Ahmad Black held as the defense's vocal leader. Elam recorded 22 tackles during his freshman season. By TYLER JETT Alligator Staff Writer tjett@alligator org For the first time this spring, Matt Elam fielded questions from the media Monday. His answers were quiet, barely even audible, which is why the subject he touched on most seemed ironic. Elam, a sophomore, will be tasked with replacing all-Southeastern Conference strong safety Ahmad Black, who led the team with 108 tackles and five interceptions last season. But more important than his statistical output, Black emerged as the team leader in the first year of the post-Tim Tebow era. At UF's NFL pro day two weeks ago, Will Muschamp called Black "an ambassador to the program." Black was the mouthpiece of the Gators, both internally and to the outside world. In September, former coach Urban Meyer compared Florida's chances of beating Kentucky to a coin flip. Later that week, Black joked about Meyer's comments, sarcastically hinting he had no idea if the Gators could win. Then, at a press conference two days after UF's 48-14 victory, Black pulled out a coin, indicating how supposedly lucky his team had been. With little to salvage from a disappointing 8-5 season, Meyer frequently pointed to the improvement of Black, who evolved from a freshman with an attitude problem to someone Meyer called a member of his family. Now, Elam is looking to go through a similar -albeit accelerated -transition. "One of the things I need to work on is being a leader," he said, his voice hardly louder than a whisper. "I'm not used to being vocal. I might have to take on that role." As quiet as Elam was Monday, one player assured everyone Elam is a much different person while wearing a helmet and pads. "He doesn't have any problems with his speech," cornerback Cody Riggs said. "That's just Matt. Some people handle the media different, but it only matters how he handles himself on the field. When Matt makes a call, I listen to him." SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 14 Undersized Florida will miss big men, be guard-heavy in 2011-12 I hope Florida fans enjoyed the Gators' low-post dominance Saturday more than UF's players and coaches seemingly did, because they won't be seeing much of it next year. Despite Vernon Macklin's careerhigh 25 points, Florida went away from him in the final minutes of the team's Elite Eight loss to Butler. Alex Tyus was visibly upset in the postgame press conference because he didn't get enough late-game looks. Commentators and analysts boasted early and often about the Gators' allsenior frontcourt of Macklin, Tyus and Chandler Parsons. Yet they were rendered ineffective -arguably by their own coaches and teammates -in the most important moment of their careers. Unfortunately for UF fans, they won't even be around to be ignored next season. Adam Berry The 2011-12 Bad News Berry Gators basketball a be rry@all Iiga to r org Twitter @adamdberry team will have a drastically different look -one a little less seasoned up front and a lot deeper in the backcourt. UF will likely start Patric Young at center and Erik Murphy at power forward next year. The duo combined for 25 minutes, two points, four rebounds and six fouls SEE ADAM, PAGE 16 Gators seeking more from middle of lineup vs. 'Noles SOUTH CAROLINA STIFLED UF'S TOP FIVE HITTERS THIS WEEKEND. By JESSE SIMONTON Alligator Staff Writer jsironton@alligator org Before No. 4 Florida challenges No. 7 Florida State tonight at 7 in Jacksonville, the heart of the Gators' order needs to exorcise its demons. During Florida's weekend series loss to No. 3 South Carolina, its Nos. 1-5 hitters combined for just five hits and nine strikeouts in 51 at-bats. While Nolan Fontana (.322), Daniel Pigott (.394) and Preston Tucker (.343) have swung the bats well this season, they were stifled by South Carolina's heavy arms. Fontana recorded the lone RBI from Florida's first five hitters with a sacrifice fly in Saturday's 2-1 win. The lone bright spot during the weekend was their 10 walks. Austin Maddox, the cleanup hitter, and Brian Johnson, usually slated in the five-hole, have been relatively quiet all season. As a freshman last year, Maddox was the Gators' best power threat, smashing 17 home runs. But through 25 games in 2011, he has just one homer and 10 RBIs. "We're not going to win many games when Baseball we go 0 for 8 in our 3-45 spots," coach Kevin O'Sullivan said after Sunday's 4-3 loss. "It's that simple. They've got to produce. They've got to swing the bat better. "Our 3-4-5 guys are going to have to hit. If we're going to want to win some games in this league, they got to do a SEE BASEBALL, PAGE 15 Florida senior forward Chandler Parsons was named one of 45 honorable mentions on The Associated Press All-America team, announced Monday.

14, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2011 UF FOOTBALL Sturgis returns to practice after injury By ANTHONY CHIANG Alligator Staff Writer achiang@alligator org While the Gators were having trouble getting rest preparing for the Crim son Tide last October, Caleb Sturgis was kept awake for another reason. "I think (my back injury felt the worst) right before the Alabama week," Sturgis said. "I just really couldn't sleep or anything like that. That was the point where I got everything checked out." Florida's kicker went on to miss the final eight games of the season with a herniated disk and a stress fracture that was first aggravated in a weight lifting session before the season. While Sturgis has yet to practice kickoffs this spring, he is slowly making his way back and is already kicking field goals. However, the injury has had lingering effects. Sturgis has cut down on weight room work and the number of kicks he attempts in practice to limit the strain on his back. The injury impacted Sturgis even before he was sidelined. He knocked in just two of four field goals in four games before punter Chas Henry filled in for him. "(Not being able to play) was obviously really rough," Sturgis said. "I never really in my life had an injury before that kept me out. It was something new for me." 0-LINE ADJUSTING: Learning the new offense hasn't just been tough on Florida's skill players. The offensive line has been asked to make a change from last season, too. On top of losing Mike Pouncey, Carl Johnson and Marcus Gilbert, the group has had to adjust to the new coaching staff's scheme this spring. Offensive coordinator Charlie Weis' system demands that the offensive line carry more responsibility. "Everything is different from last year," right guard Jon Halapio said. "Our offensive line coach is not only teaching us techniques, but now we are learning the entire football play. We have to know what the quarterback is thinking, running back is thinking and wide receiver is thinking." UF kicker Caleb Sturgis only played in four games last year due to a herniated disk and stress fracture in his back, but he returned to practice this spring.

While he saw more game action than most members of Florida's hyped freshman class last year, his 22 tackles ranked 14th on the team. He also broke up one pass and recovered a fumble. Perhaps more so than any other player in the 2010 recruiting class, Elam signed with the Gators because of his connection to Meyer. Elam, who was among the first five players to verbally commit to UF as a high school junior, actually decommitted from the Gators in December 2009 when Meyer first stepped down. After Meyer assured him that he was in fact returning to Florida, Elam Football recommitted about a month before National Signing Day. When asked how he felt about Meyer leaving, Elam just smiled and said, "I don't want to talk about that." He proceeded to say he was getting along well with Muschamp and the rest of the new coaching staff. Just how well they get along with him, however, could depend greatly on whether Elam can fill Black's shoes. After a year of serving as Black's understudy, Elam feels confident the transition will be smooth. "He helped me a lot," Elam said.

TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 15 Gators men in disappointing ninth after Day 2 FLORIDA IS 17 STROKES BEHIND THE LEADER IN THE HOOTIE AT BULLS BAY COLLEGIATE. By ALEX PECKHAM Alligator Writer The Florida men's golf team came into the Hootie at Bulls Bay Collegiate hoping to get one last tournament victory before moving on to postseason play, but that goal seems nearly impossible now. The Gators find themselves in ninth place, 17 strokes behind tournament leader Augusta State after Monday's action in Awendaw, S.C. Florida shot a combined 8-over-par on Day 2, bringing its score to 12-over for the tournament. Sophomore Phillip Choi and junior Michael Furci were the two bright spots for the Gators, as both turned in 1-under-par 70s. Choi's under-par round was due to a solid back nine that included two birdies and no bogeys. Choi is tied for 10th overall. Furci's stellar showing was a welcome sign for the junior, who has had trouble cracking the starting lineup all year. The DePaul transfer not only impressed with his play but also his resiliency, as Monday's round came on the heels of a discouraging 6-over-par 77 on Sunday. UF coach Buddy Alexander included Furci in the "couple of guys who played really well today" and added that Michael's round was "very encouraging." Unfortunately for the Gators, the rest of the squad was unable to replicate their success. Senior Bank Vongvanij had a disappointing round on Monday, as did sophomores Tyler McCumber and Tommy Mou. McCumber, whose game had progressed nicely in last week's Schenkel Invitational and to start the Hootie, shot a 5-over-par 76. The sophomore struggled on his way to a 3-over-par front nine but regained his form before a doublebogey 5 on the par-3 12th set him back to 5-over. Mou has had trouble putting together a complete round all year, and that trend continued Monday when he shot a 5-over-par 76. Mou's day was done in by a seven-hole stretch on the front nine that included five bogeys. The biggest surprise for the Gators was the high score of Bank Vongvanij. The two-time Southeastern Conference Golfer of the Week shot a 6-over-par 77, his worst round of the season. Alexander said Vongvanij's struggles "show that even the best players can play poorly on occasion." Alexander added he is "pretty sure that (Vongvanij) will bounce back (on Tuesday)." Although the Gators' chances of winning the Hootie at Bulls Bay Invitational are likely finished, Tuesday's round will be very important for Florida. A strong conclusion could help the Gators regain some confidence before the SEC Championship begins on April 15. Alexander didn't seem concerned about his team's play going into the most critical part of its schedule. "I'm pretty sure our team will bounce back," Alexander said. Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff Florida senior Bank Vongvanij played a disappointing second round in the Hootie at Bulls Bay Collegiate on Monday, shooting a 6-over-par 77, his worst round of the season. Randall's success draws Maddux comparison from Gamecocks coach Max Reed / Alligator Staff Florida sophomore right-handed pitcher Hudson Randall threw a gem in his first-career complete game Saturday, improving his record to 4-0 and dropping his ERA to 0.66. BASEBALL, from page 13 better job." O'Sullivan said the most frustrating issue with his hitters is that they are missing hittable pitches in offensive counts. "We get into a 3-1 count, we hit a weak ground ball to first," he said. "You got to turn on it. You got to barrel up and do something with it. We're not doing a whole lot in offensive counts right now." O'Sullivan hinted at possible lineup changes after Sunday's defeat, but said he would rather rest on it than make an announcement right after a loss. RANDALL THROWING LIGHTS OUT: Although the Gators' lineup had issues this weekend, their righthanded ace did not. Hudson Randall continued his outstanding work Saturday, tossing a gem in his first-career complete game as Florida won 2-1. The sophomore from Atlanta is 4-0 and has a miniscule 0.66 ERA. In two conference starts against top-five competition (LSU and South Carolina), Randall has thrown 15.2 innings, without allowing a run or a walk. "I just try to be as competitive as possible on the mound and be a bulldog out there," Randall said. "I don't strike many people out. I pitch to contact. Using the defense, using our team, that's what I do." Through six starts this season, Randall has thrown 40.2 innings, striking out 25 and walking just one. Randall was dominant in his Saturday start, as he used pinpoint control to retire the final 19 Gamecocks. South Carolina coach Ray Tanner was extremely impressed, comparing Randall to Greg Maddux. "He's very, very good," Tanner said. "He's so efficient. He doesn't waste a lot of pitches." ETC.: Anthony DeSclafani (3-0, 1.12) is scheduled to toe the rubber tonight against Florida State. In the junior's last start against the Seminoles, he allowed five runs in the first inning without retiring a batter. .The game will be played at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville, home of the Florida Marlins' Double-A affiliate.

16, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2011 ADAM, from page 13 in Saturday's loss against a hopelessly undersized Bulldogs frontcourt. Don't get me wrong: Young is exceptionally gifted and will be a great NBA player someday, and I think Donovan will eventually be proven correct in his comparison of Murphy to former Florida forward Matt Bonner. But they're not Macklin, Tyus and Parsons. Those three, the surest things on Florida's roster, will be gone. Erving Walker and Kenny Boynton led the Gators with 14.6 and 14.2 points per game, respectively. But they did so on a combined 811 shots. The frontcourt trio combined for 911. As much as people criticized Tyus for his career-low scoring average of 9.1, he did so while playing the fewest minutes of best guards on the Gators' roster. any member of the starting five, hitting 50 percent of his shots and taking 106 fewer attempts than Erving Walker -173 fewer than Boynton. Macklin, meanwhile, was Florida's most offensively efficient player, making a staggering 59.3 percent of his attempts. And everyone knows Parsons took home the SEC Player of the Year award this season, becoming one of the most versatile players in the country. His 2-for-9 shooting Saturday isn't indicative of the season he had. Next year, without that trio, it will be almost unfair to say Florida will be guardheavy. Walker and Boynton will likely continue to shoulder the load and step into increased leadership roles. But they might be the third and fourth Mike Rosario, the Rutgers transfer often forgotten about during the season, will suit up for Florida next year. It's safe to assume Donovan is excited to utilize the 6-foot-3 guard's ability to create and put the ball in the basket -he scored 16.7 points per game in the Big East in 2009-10. And perhaps most intriguing, the Gators will add super-recruit Brad Beal. The 6-foot-4 shooting guard from St. Louis (Mo.) Chaminade does a little bit of everything -and he does it all well. It will be impossible to keep him from playing significant minutes immediately. Plus, barring another rush of postseason transfers, Florida will return Casey Prather and Scottie Wilbekin in the backcourt. Wilbekin certainly performed far above and way beyond expectations, especially as he became the team's second-best on-theball defender, while Prather drew a lot of praise for his athleticism, even if he didn't get a chance to show it on the court. That leaves Young, Murphy, Will Yeguete, a no-longer-redshirted Cody Larson and three-star freshman Walter Pitchford in the frontcourt. The Gators will certainly have enough talented guards to carry them to another successful season next year, and Young and Murphy are capable of developing into a reliable starting frontcourt. But they won't have a ton of experienced big men. Not a whole lot of known quantities. Not many sure things. They're all on their way out the door. Hopefully the Gators enjoyed them while they could. I I.IIT CI.II' TC T-2. E-rving Walker, Jr. 1. Kenny Boynton 17 points T-2. Erving Walker 16 points T-2. Chandler Parsons 16 points 4. Vernon Macklin 8 points 5. Alex Tyus 4 points 4. Vernon Macklin, Sr. Macklin came into his own as a low-post scoring threat during his senior season, finishing third on the team with 11.6 points per game. The center shot a team-leading 59.3 percent from the field with his nearly unstoppable hook shot from the field. Despite his 6-foot-io stature, Macklin finished third on the team with 5.4 rebounds per game. He also ended the year third in blocks with 26, and his minutes were limited in clutch situations by his 45.1 free-throw percentage. Still, the senior center gained respect from his teammates for fighting through nagging injuries and providing a humorous presence in the locker room. Walker finished tied for second with Chandler Parsons in the seasonlong standings with 16 points, but the junior guard received first-place honors in four of our weekly polls. Walker was the team's leading scorer at 14.6 points per game and provided a spark to an offense that was sometimes stagnant and out of sync. The junior scored in a variety of ways, recording 148 points from two-point Strange, 237 points from three-point range and a team-best 154 points from the free-throw line. Walker was Florida's primary ball handler, but he finished the season second with 125 assists while leading the Gators with 87 turnovers. Still, Walker was often called upon to take, and usually make, clutch shots. 5. Alex Tyus, Sr. Tyus finished the season playing better than anyone on the team, recording double-doubles in the team's final two games. This included an outstanding 19-point, 17-rebound showing in the team's Sweet 16 victory over BYU. But up to that point in the season, Tyus had been a relative disappointment, averaging just 8.6 points and 5.7 rebounds per game prior to the final two contests despite his superior talent and athleticism. Still, the senior forward shot an impressive 50 percent for the season and finished second on UF with 29 blocks.
