Former VP, IFAS founder York dies at 88


* HE FOUNDED IFAS IN 1964.

By MEREDITH RUTLAND
Alligator Writer

E.T. York, the founder of UF's Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences and life-
long supporter of agriculture education,
died Friday. He was 88.
York, who also served as executive vice


president and interim president at UF as
well as the chancellor emeritus of the State
University System, was best known for
creating the institute in 1964 and devel-
oping it into a nationally recognized pro-
gram.
He went on to be an adviser on agricul-
tural issues for six presidents and the chair
of the federal Board for International Food
and Agricultural Development.
"E.T. embodied the ideas of service,


loyalty and ._._,,..... J " UF President Ber-
nie Machen said in a statement. "He was
an absolute giant of a man in every sense,
and we will all miss
UF him terribly."
Administration York was born in
Alabama and grew
up during the Great Depression. He re-
ceived a bachelor's degree in agriculture
sciences from Alabama Polytechnic Insti-
tute, now known as Auburn University,


served in the Army during World War II
and returned to Auburn University to get
a master's degree.
He is survived by his wife of 64 years,
Vermelle, whom he met while he was a
graduate student.
He also is survived by his daughter,
Lisa, and his son, Travis.
Funeral services will be for family, per
his request. A public memorial will be
scheduled at a later date.


UF FINANCES

30 percent tuition hike


unlikely, Machen says


By HANNAH WINSTON
Alligator Writer

UF students may be happy to hear
that their tuition won't greatly increase
this fall, but it may mean cuts to academ-
ic programs and employee benefits.
In Thursday's Faculty Senate meet-
ing, UF President Bernie Machen said
his proposed 30 percent tuition increase
would be a far stretch to get by state leg-
islators.
"I haven't given up," he said, "but I'd
say it's a Hail Mary at this point."
Machen's proposal would be a one-
time 30 percent increase that would help
UF keep core programs and benefits for
employees. It was suggested to counter-
act the budget cuts proposed by Gov.
Rick Scott.


The possible increase would raise in-
state tuition at UF from $5,000 to $6,500
a year.
Even after the increase, tuition would
still be lower than the national average of
about $7,600, according to CollegeBoard.
com.
The state allows
universities to increase
tuition up to 15 percent
a year.
For UF, that would
be $750 more for tu-
ition per semester.
Machen said the 15
percent increase might cover the pro-
posed $17.5 million cut to faculty ben-
efits at UF, but it won't cover the base
budget that is also proposed to be cut by
legislation.


Book sale offers steals


By MEREDITH RUTLAND
Alligator Writer

Armed with a green Tupperware bin
bearing his name, Bob Nudelman showed
up at a book sale a day early.
Traveling from Chester, Va., he
wouldn't say exactly how long he'd been
there because he didn't want his competi-
tion to find out.
Saturday was the first day of the five-
day-long sale, and hundreds of dealers,
bookworms and penny-pinching students
alike lined up hours before the sale opened
at 430-B N. Main St.
"This is probably one of the top 10 to
15 sales in the :....in, " said Nudelman, a


book dealer. "It's the best sale in Florida."
At 9 a.m., book sale staff opened the
doors to customers. Those in the block-
long line power-walked past a police offi-
cer into the warehouse.
"It's the best sale in Florida."
Bob Nudelman

Inside, the building smelled of oldbooks
with a tang of cement dust, but shoppers
didn't have time to stop and smell.
It's all about speed, said Emily Rodri-
guez, a 28-year-old Gainesville resident.

Online photos of belly dancing sink NYC woman's disability claim


NEW YORK - A New York City woman
who was getting $850 a month in alimony
because she was supposedly disabled and
unable to work had her payments slashed
after her ex-husband spotted online photos
of her belly dancing.
Brian McGurk went to court after dis-
covering a blog that showed his 43-year-old
ex-wife dancing at a gallery.
In other Internet postings, she wrote
about dancing vigorously for several hours


every day.
Dorothy McGurk told the court that the
dancing was physical therapy for injuries
she suffered in a car accident in the mid-
1990s.
A county judge didn't buy it - and re-
duced her payments to $400 per month.
The judge also ordered her to pay her
ex-husband's legal fees and 60 percent from
the sale of their home.

Rubio talks government reform at induction ceremony


By MORGAN WATKINS
Alligator Writer

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio visited
his alma mater Saturday, joining
UF students and alumni for the
Florida Blue Key banquet and in-
duction ceremony.
Rubio, a UF graduate who de-
feated former Florida Gov. Charlie
Crist and former U.S. Rep. Ken-
drick Meek in November for the
Senate seat, gave the banquet's
keynote speech to an audience


that included UF President Bernie
Machen, former Florida Chief Fi-
nancial Officer Alex Sink and UF
Student Body President Ashton
Charles.
During his speech, Rubio cited
the national debt as a central threat
to America and called for an end
to crisis-oriented government in
Washington, D.C.
"We can't lurch from one crisis
to the other," he said in an inter-
view before the banquet. "We've
got to figure out a way to get ahead
of the issues before the issues get


ahead of us."
Rubio said the United States dis-
tinguishes itself
from other na-
tions not through
its government
but through its
people. America,
he said, is a na-
tion of citizens
Rubio who come from
many back-
grounds but are all "descendants
of go-getters."
"If tomorrow America decided


we want to be just like everyone
else- who takes America's place?"
he said. "There is no one waiting in
line to be who we have been."
The 64 Florida Blue Key induct-
ees, including UF : -.I . rl: ;II player
Chandler Parsons, were then of-
ficially welcomed into the organi-
zation, which is the university's
oldest honor and service society.
According to Florida Blue Key
President Craig Thompson, the or-
ganization has about 160 student
members.
For many in the audience, the


banquet was the first opportunity
they had to hear Rubio speak, he
said.
"He's a die-hard Gator and
loves the University of Florida,"
Thompson said of the senator.
Kiel Green, a UF junior who
was inducted into Florida Blue Key
Saturday, said that while Rubio's
speech was more political than he
expected, it included ideas that
people needed to hear.
"It's nice to have [our] service to
the University of Florida reward-
ed," he said.


Weather delays egg hunt


By KAITLYNN FLOYD
Alligator Contributing Writer

The skies of Alachua were predict-
ed to rain with Easter eggs, but 15 mph
winds changed the forecast.
About 2,000 people gathered for
Egg Drop Alachua on Saturday at the
future location of Christ Central Ala-
chua church, located on Cellon Creek
Boulevard, where plastic eggs were
scheduled to drop from a hot-air bal-
loon for children to find along with
10,000 eggs already scattered on the
ground.
But there was one problem: The
hot-air balloon couldn't fly in 15 mph
winds.
After 40 minutes of attempting to


get the balloon in the air, Mark Johns,
lead pastor of Christ Central Alachua,
improvised by starting a countdown
himself, and the hunt began.
It took the children 15 minutes to
find all the eggs.
Though the egg drop didn't go as
planned, the event had different activ-
ity stations for the chil-
Local dren such as face paint-
News ing and bounce houses.
The Easter bunny even
made an early visit.
Johns said he wanted to provide
a safe, fun and entertaining environ-
ment for families to spend their Satur-
day afternoon.
Johns said he hopes to drop the
eggs from helicopters next year.

Museum expands sale of butterfly plants


The Florida Museum of Natural History
will host one of its largest plant sales April
22-24 to celebrate Earth Day.
Butterfly-friendly plants may be pur-
chased from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and
Saturday and from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. The
sale features 80 to 100 species of native,
host and nectar plants ranging from $3 to
$25 and marks the beginning of the mu-
seum's daily butterfly plant sales.
"This plant sale will offer more than four
times the species offered during our regular
plant sales," said Jeffrey Hansen, Florida
Museum Butterfly Rainforest operations
manager.
The list of plants for sale is on the
museum website at www.flmnh.ufl.edu/
butterflies/plant_sales.htm.
"Many factors like clearing land for
housing and crops or using pesticides
destroys butterfly habitat," Hansen said.
"However, many species can survive with
small backyard plots of the plants they

week due to the increased interest in butter-

visitors may also speak with experienced
museum employees and volunteers.
Hansen recommends gardeners:
* Include all types of plants in your
garden. Butterflies feed on nectar plants
and lay their eggs on specific host plants.
Caterpillars also feed on host plants
before transforming into butterflies.
* Research local butterflies if you want to
attract specific species. Some butterflies
lay their eggs in the shade while others
prefer sunny environments. Each but-
terfly has a specific host plant: Monarchs
lay eggs on Milkweed and the Zebra
Longwing lays its eggs on Passion Flower.
* Take the necessary precautions when
planting during periods of extremely high
or low temperatures, and ensure new
plants receive the correct amount of water.

Lobster shells valuable for golf balls, plant pots


* THE BIODEGRADABLE


BALLS CAN BE USED ON
CRUISE SHIPS.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Lobsters aren't just for eating
anymore.
The shells from Maine's signa-
ture seafood are being used to man-
ufacture decorative tiles, trivets and
drnking-glass coasters. Work is
under way to utilize them in coun-
tertops and tabletops. And at the
University of Maine, a professor has
developed prototypes of biodegrad-
able golf balls and plant pots made
out of ground-up lobster shells.
"Instead of dumping the shells
at landfills, the idea is to add value
to the product, which .. :.-.-1.ll
will funnel back into the industry,"
said David Neivandt, a professor of
chemical and biological engineer-
ing who created a biodegradable
golf ball with a core made of lobster
shells.
Lobster processors dispose of
tons of lobster shells that are left
over after the meat is removed. In-

dustry leaders have long wondered
if there might be a way to make
money from the part being thrown
away.
Neivandt and one of his stu-
dents, Alex Caddell, together de-
veloped a golf ball using ground-up
lobster shells mixed with a glue-like
substance for its core.
The shell is also made out of nat-
urally derived biodegradable mate-
rial, but they aren't giving specifics
because they don't want to give
away any secrets.
The ball is the same size and
weight as a standard golf ball but is
intended for use on cruise ships or
at driving ranges that are on lakes
or the ocean.
Dumping golf balls into the sea
is prohibited under international
convention because they are made
of plastic and don't break down, but

about three weeks.
Caddell, who played golf in high
school, said he and Neivandt tested
numerous balls that cracked, didn't
fly quite right or otherwise didn't
make the cut.

Finally, they came upon just the
right mixture that makes the ball hit
nearly like the real thing.
"The first time I hit it, I was sur-
prised it didn't shatter into a million
pieces," Caddell said. "And it flew
straight. I usually have a pretty bad
slice, so to hit it straight was amaz-
ing."
With an iron, the ball flies nearly

golf balls on the
National market, which sell

Neivandt said. The
raw materials for the lobster golf
ball cost about 19 cents per ball,
which could make it competitive in

The university has filed a pro-

mixture. Neivandt said a private
company could buy the licensing
rights and market the ball, or the
school could spin off a company
that would produce it.

which has a high calcium content
beneficial to flowers and vegetables,
to place directly in the ground with
flowers or vegetable plants.
Turning seafood waste products
such as lobster or clam shells into
products with commercial value
would benefit the seafood industry,
said Bob Bayer, head of The Lobster
Institute Research and Education
organization at the University of
Maine.
Most lobster shells are dumped
in the garbage or at landfills, Bayer
said, with some of it going toward
seafood compost used for gardens
or turned into lobster meal, which is
an animal feed additive.
There have been failed efforts to
turn the shells into other marketable
products, such as lobster bait, over
the years, so Bayer is pleased to see
new products come on line.
"The whole idea is to add value
to our lobster," he said. "The more

Gainesville Borders location closes doors for good


By KRISTIN LOPOPOLO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Borders closed its doors for
the final time Sunday after
purging almost its entire in-
ventory, including furniture.
Dozens of customers searched
through the leftover books, maga-
zines and CDs left in the store,
6837 W. Newberry Road, while
others left with bookshelves.
Most books were sold for less
than $5.
"It's really sad the store
is gone."
Nandy Ferguson
general store manager of the
Florida Book Store


"Chords of Strength: A Mem-
oir of Soul, Song and the Power of
Perseverance" by David Archu-
leta was one of the last books on
the shelves.
"It's really sad the store
is gone," said Nandy Fergu-
son, the general store man-
ager of the Florida Book Store.
The store's 26 employees are now
out of a job, including Ferguson's
husband, Brian. He was Borders'


inventory manager for five years.
She said he became close friends
with his co-workers, which is an-


other reason he will miss his job. nights before it closed. Inside, it

to their friends. Customers glared
at a man who sneezed, as if the
noise bothered them.
"I felt like I was in a l1.: '
she said. "It was very eerie."
The store is one of 200 within
the Ann Arbor, Mich.,-based com-
pany to close due to lack of sales.
The business filed for Chapter 11
reorganization in February.
The Gainesville branch opened
in November 1999 but was placed
on Borders' list of "underperform-
ing stores."
Its closure was announced Feb.
16, and the location had closeout
sales since then. The store recent-
ly had signs in the windows an-
nouncing 80 to 90 percent off the
store's inventory.
David Denslow, a UF econom-
ics professor, said the increase of
sales in electronic books on iP-
ads and Nooks contributed to the
store's downfall.
The ebook of the New York
Times bestseller, "Water for El-
ephants," is $4.17 on Amazon.
Amazon's hardcover edition is
$16.29.
The large paperback version is
sold for $14.95 at Borders stores
that are still open.


The sale, held twice a year, usually brings in about $150,000

"I'm in heaven," she said as she put a $3, unopened Led
Zeppelin record in her box. "We're all taking advantage of
these prices, which you won't find ever."
Pete Roode, president of Friends of the Library, said their
patronage will be worth more than the shoppers know.
He said the only money the Friends of the Library spends
from the proceeds is what's needed to pay the warehouse elec-
tricity bills. Everything else goes to the Alachua County Li-


brary District to buy books. He said the sale consistently brings
in about $150,000 twice a year.
Saturday brought in $91,700 from thousands of shoppers,
and he said that's especially important this year
Student because the state legislature is considering cutting
Life funding for library districts.
"I think it's more important than in years gone
by," Roode said.
A mother with a sleeping baby strapped to her back flipped
through learning-to-count books.


Retired experts-turned-volunteers kept watch over the
books they know best. And because prices are low, book-lov-
ing students come flocking.
"This is ridiculous," said Melika Hadziomerovic, a UF ju-
nior, as she sorted out what she couldn't afford. "It's everything
that I want to buy but can't afford to buy in a big store."
The sale, she said, is wonderful. So wonderful, in fact, that it
left the English major at a loss for a fitting metaphor.
But, then again, she had been waiting in line since 6:30 a.m.
"It's like the highlight of the semester," she said.

Editorial

Single Whammy

Thirty-percent tuition

hike looks unlikely
Although most of the Editorial Board is graduating
in a few days, we're happy to hear Bernie Machen's
proposed 30 percent tuition increase is now merely
a dream, unlikely to come true.
We want everyone to have the same types of opportu-
nities we've had while at UF, and stressing students with
financial burdens doesn't help achieve that end. It seemed
like our administration was willing to rain down a perfect
storm of price hikes on students, especially with block tu-
ition gaining steam despite student protests.
We could have understood had the proposals been for
either block tuition or a 30 percent increase, but hitting stu-
dents with both at one time was nonsensical. We're think-
ing that's what someone told dear old Bernie to make him
understand that although our students' median household
income breaks $100,000 a year, there are many who are
scrounging for cash and working jobs to fund their educa-
tion.
We're not out of the woods yet, though. The price of tu-
ition still can increase legally by 15 percent per year until
we meet the national average.
It looks like no matter what we do, attending college is
going to become more expensive even as Bright Futures
dies a slow, painful death. Although we applaud our Ma-
chen for coming to his senses, we still have a feeling that
students aren't going to like tuition prices increasing, es-
pecially for classes they're paying for but not taking under
the block tuition plan.


Revenue Review


W ith Tax Day here,
we've come across
news saying taxes
collected on our nation's
top 400 incomes amount to
10 percentage points less
than those collected in 1992.
Sounds crazy compared to
the average drop of 0.6 per-
centage points, doesn't it?
Well, keep in mind that 45
percent of American house-
holds pay no income taxes,
according to the Tax Policy
Center.
The majority of those not
paying, and note this doesn't
mean they don't pay payroll,
state and local taxes, make
$50,000 or less each year, but
there are five million people
making between $50,000
and $1 million who don't
have to worry about the tax
man. People in both groups
have exemptions and credits
to thank, but their days are
likely numbered.


Both sides of the aisle have
been discussing ways to gen-
erate revenue through taxa-
tion, whether it be through
eliminating tax breaks but
lowering the highest tax rate
or through forcing the rich
to pay the same percentage
the average American does.
We're getting ready for a
long, ugly battle between
people who agree we need
more revenue but who dis-
agree on who to take it from.
We have to give both
sides a nod for understand-
ing the tax system is entirely
too complicated as is, but
Obama certainly won us
over by saying he wanted to
create a system where "the
amount of taxes you pay isn't
determined by what kind of
accountant you can afford."
Nicely said, Mr. President.
Making that happen, how-
ever, is going to be a differ-
ent story.

What a difference
What a difference a year can bring.
Some years are good.
Some years are bad.
Some shoot by in a flash while others seem to drag
on for an eternity.
While the jury still is out on the next twelve months,
the next year is certain to be a memorable one.
Crises at home and abroad still will exist.
Record budget shortfalls still will be hanging over
our heads, and power struggles between the president
and Congress still will be playing out in our nation's
capital.
However, all hope is not lost.
Patrick Henry said, "I have but one lamp by which
my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I
know of no way of judging the future but by the past."
Surely, America's past has been bright. For most of
the 20th century, the United States was a light to a dark
and hopeless world.
In addition to twice saving the world from tyranny,
the U.S. survived, and recovered from, the crash of its
stock market, the assassination of a president and nu-
merous other tragedies that should have crippled this
relatively new nation.
While these uplifting thoughts certainly come to
mind today, Patrick Henry was offering his words as
a cautionary tale against those who would undermine
individual liberties protected by a republican system of
government.
It was Thomas Jefferson who said, "History has in-
formed us that bodies of men as well as individuals are
susceptible to the spirit of tyranny."
During these times of heightened national security

a year can bring
and record budget shortfalls, all
Americans must be mindful of
these words.
Fortunately, there is no rea-
son America's future cannot be as
bright as its past.
Zack Smith Many experts often say the first
letters@alligatororg and hardest step on the road to re-
covery is recognizing a problem ex-
ists. As a nation, we have done this and are beginning
to discuss the next steps necessary to treat our current
financial condition.
The problem, though, is that many of the remedies
currently being discussed are merely superficial fixes
- remedies akin to only lifting one's foot off the ac-
celerator of a speeding car rather than wholeheartedly
applying the brakes when confronted with the possibil-
ity of a crash.
U.S. domestic security, national security and ulti-
mately its protection of individual liberties at home and
abroad depend on our ability to place our nation on a
sound financial footing.
As both Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson im-
plied, much can be learned from history. History has
seen many great nations rise but unfortunately fall from
their own internal failings.
The United States is at a crossroads.
We can join these other nations that have fallen by
the wayside, or we can reform and continue to show
the world what can be rather than being remembered
merely for what once was.

Conservatives can't have it both ways
Bob Minchin mentions that any true con-
servative is appalled by intrusive agencies and
overbearing regulations. He then proceeds to
completely contradict those principles as he
talks about regulating abortion. A government
telling a woman what to do with her body is
not only intrusive and overbearing but also
degrading. Comparing abortion to genocide
is offensive toward all people who have lived
through an actual genocide.
It is not right to "punish" a girl for having
sex by forcing her to have a baby and then pay
to raise it. Conservatives will fight for that fe-
tus until it is actually born and then refuse to
give it welfare.
Conservatives, make up your mind. Will it
be an overbearing and intrusive government
that regulates everything, or will people be al-

Women face undue burden in child care
What is with the Bob Minchin column
published on Friday? It's like he doesn't
even try to understand what these women
are going through. I will admit I am against
abortions, but I at least try to understand
why someone would do such a thing. How
is a woman supposed to take care of a child
if she gets paid a lower salary than a man?
How is she supposed to take care of a child
if child care costs are ridiculous? There are


no American laws that give nursing women
a break.
Everything is about some absurd idea
that people are on their own and shouldn't
receive help when they desperately need it.
Yes, abortions disrespect the sanctity of
life, but at least they make it easier for wom-
en, especially single mothers, to take care of
their children.
Take Europe, for example, where women
are given two months after giving birth to
recuperate and are given adequate child care
assistance by law. The foster care system in
America is so lacking that most of the chil-
dren in there aren't going to college to get an
education. So if you are going to say no to
abortions, at least make that choice an easier
one. Yes, society is on a moral decline, but
that shouldn't justify being cruel and deny-
ing aid to those who make mistakes.

LGBT community only wants equality
After reading the replies to Megan Bis-
sell's letter, published April 13, regarding
Chick-fil-A's support of anti-gay organi-
zations, I must say that I too am an angry
lesbian. The point both Andrew Robb and
Ryan Galloway seemed to miss is that the
university allows a corporation to profit off

is entitled to its "moral" convictions just as
much as anyone else. However, these ideals
are not consistent with the inclusive and ac-
cepting values UF espouses. It is extremely
unsettling to know that my school, which
insists upon cultivating a diverse student
culture, continues to involve itself with
a corporation that blatantly perpetuates
discrimination and hate against me. UF's
seemingly indifferent attitude in regard to
this matter is just as good as its consent and
agreement with Chick-fil-A's actions. How
can one feel safe and comfortable on a cam-
pus that funds political causes directly tar-
geting its students?
As for the gross over-generalizations
of the LGBT community's ability to toler-
ate differing opinions, I believe we tolerate
screaming preachers and fellow classmates
every day who express their "inability to
approve of the way [we] choose to live [our
lives]."
We do not seek commendation, praise or
even approval. I do not need my university
to proclaim itself "pro-gay." All we expect
is equality, and all we reject is our status as
second-class citizens. If these basic needs are
misconstrued as "intolerance," I feel that
some of our students need a drastic reality
check.
Think we're on a level playing field?
Think again.

Guest column

UF's Pride Student Union perpetuates


People mock what they don't understand. Last fall,
our country witnessed a string of suicides by gay
teens as a result of bullying. These teens weren't
mocked for who they were - they were mocked because
of who people assumed they were because of the label-
ing and gay stereotypes that have been forced upon us by
specific members of our community.
We are lucky to live in a city with a gay mayor. We are
lucky to have been blessed recently with our own chapter
of Equality Florida. We are lucky to live in a place that is
as accepting as Gainesville.
However, everyone else isn't as lucky as we are. In
many places, organizations like UF's Pride Student Union
provide a safe haven for men and women who are grap-
pling with their sexuality, but here at UF our organization
is more concerned with drag queens and perpetuating the
homosexual stereotype than actually making a difference
on campus. Don't beg for equality and acceptance and
then blatantly promote the "cultural stereotype." Equal-
ity stems from being equal, not from making an example


Jonothon Mitchell of yourself for the heterosexual
Speaking Out community to mock.
Programs like The Trevor
Project and It Gets Better have
been integral in the effort to show that the gay commu-
nity is made up of a plethora of different people. For the
first time, the world is able to see not all of us fit the ste-
reotypical mold of a flaming homosexual. The community
has come a very long way since a time when being brand-
ed as homosexual automatically meant you loved glitter,
interior lighting and Cher. However, all you have to do is
turn to UF's Pride organization, and suddenly we've been
set back a hundred years.
Drag shows, an event with Christian Sinano and view-
ings of "I Love You Phillip Morris" are exactly the type of
events that cause homophobes to assume all gay men and
lesbian women are exactly the same, which couldn't be
farther from the truth.
Do I wear women clothing? No. Because I'm gay, am
I required to think anything Lady Gaga has to say is rel-


LGBT stereotypes
evant? No. Is it wrong for gay men to enjoy football or
things more commonly associated with heterosexuals?
No, not at all. However, many people automatically as-
sume these things to be true. Why? Because the unfortu-
nate truth is that organizations like Pride have made it
impossible for the rest of the world to see not all gay men
want to flaunt their sexuality around like they got it half-
off at Neiman Marcus.
For the closeted gay man who is terrified to come out
because he assumes our culture is nothing but limp-wrist-
ed, drag-queen-loving femmes, let me be the first to tell
you it's not. There is nothing wrong with being proud,
but there are certainly many other ways to celebrate who
you are. Don't let the negative stereotypes perpetuated
by organizations like Pride dissuade you from just being
yourself.
We don't need these events to make us feel proud of
who we are. I'd have a lot more pride if blatant homo-
sexuals would stop embarrassing our community.

Vet school opens doors for tours, animal adoptions


By RACHEL STEPHENS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Eight-year-old Kendal Binkley loves hors-
es and wants to be a veterinarian when she
grows up. On Saturday, she got a glance of
what a day in the life of a vet looks like.
Binkley and her mother came from Lake
Mary to join more than 1,000 others at the
UF College of Veterinary Medicine's annual
open house.
From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., visitors toured
the animal hospitals, petted animals and ob-
served medical equipment in use on live ani-
mals. This year's event featured the addition


of the new UF Small Animal Hospital tour
and pet adoptions.
Groups of about 20 people were led on
30-minute tours through the first floor of the
new hospital, which contains the emergency
receiving area and exam rooms.
On the tour, people were showed the
emergency room, the intensive care unit and
progressive care unit.
Guests also got to see an array of about 60
different dogs and cats available for adop-
tion.
The animals were provided by Helping
Hands Pet Rescue, a local volunteer animal
adoption agency.


"Part of our mission here is to encour-
age people to join our profession..."
Dana Zimmel
chief of staff of the UF Veterinary Hospitals
Along with tours and adoptions, this
year's open house also featured events spe-
cifically geared for children, according to
Dana Zimmel, the chief of staff of the UF Vet-
erinary Hospitals.
"Part of our mission here is to encourage
people to join our profession, and it starts at a
young age," Zimmel said. "And so we want


to expose people when they're small about
this career path."
The UF Veterinary Hospitals hosted a
pet-drawing competition for children at lo-
cal elementary schools to raise interest in the
event. A teddy bear clinic also was available
for children who needed to have their stuffed
animals repaired, she said.
Lectures were given for parents and teens
who were interested in what it takes to get
into the UF College of Veterinary Medicine,
Zimmel said.
UF has the only veterinary school in Flor-
ida, and about 800 people apply for only 100
spots given each year.

Familiar struggles on beam come back to haunt Gators in NCAA semifinals


GYMNASTICS, from page 15

been a wreck all weekend. I knew the same things were go-
ing through her head - all that I've been through, and now
to end on this amazing note was just a blessing."
Despite the heartfelt ending to Smith's career as an indi-
vidual, the final moments of the Gators' 2011 season were
far more bitter than sweet.
UF finished fourth in Friday night's semifinals with a
final score of 196.125, coming in just behind third-place
Utah's 196.2.
Utah joined the top two finishers from the second ses-
sion, Nebraska and Alabama, in the Super Six. Saturday,
the Crimson Tide became national champions.
The blockade that held UF back from the chance to duke
it out for the title was all too familiar.
It was no secret that the balance beam was Florida's
weakest event throughout the season.
Following a string of flawed beam routines in the NCAA
North Central Regionals on April 2, the team honed in on
its biggest splinter in the practices leading up to the week-
end's competition.
The Gators created pressure situations while performing


intrasquads on the beam nearly every day prior to Friday,
and the gymnasts said their confidence level had increased
and their routines had improved as the meet grew closer.
Faehn said the team had at least seven intrasquads since
regionals - all without one mistake, without one fall.
But when the fifth-seeded Gators jumped onto the event
to open the meet, all of their hard work
seemed to vanish almost immediately.
Florida's first beam performer, junior
Elizabeth Mahlich, fell off the beam, stum-
bling to a disappointing 9.275. Moments
later, Johnson wobbled her way to a 9.2.
Florida's gymnasts posted two of the
meet's four lowest scores in the event.
Smith "I really don't know what happened,"
freshman all-arounder Mackenzie Ca-
quatto said. "We had a good practice [Thursday], and
warm-up was great. It is just one of those fluky things, I
guess."
Faehn wondered in retrospect if she made a mistake
slating Mahlich as the beam's opener after her shaky re-
gional performance.
"Even though she hit every intrasquad, she probably


still had that in the back of her head and didn't have the
confidence to go up -, .....- ._1 " Faehn said. "It made ev-
eryone tight when she had a mistake."
After beam, the Gators had a bye, giving them time to
recharge before the remaining three events.
On floor, Johnson and Smith had particularly impres-
sive performances, as each earned an impressive 9.9 and
King added a 9.925.
The Gators also had solid vault and bars routines, with
each gymnast scoring a 9.725 or better. Though some per-
formances had missed landings, there weren't any major
mistakes.
But, it was too little, too late.
"We had a really big hole to fill and just couldn't come
out of it," senior Alicia Goodwin said.
What made the run especially stinging was Florida's im-
pressive year leading up to the competition. The Gators at
one point held a No. 1 national ranking and beat Alabama,
Utah and Nebraska in their regular season.
"It is extremely disappointing because we know how
talented this team is," Faehn said. "But I told them talent
doesn't win championships - you've got to stay on the
equipment. Unfortunately, we didn't do that."


Normally reliable UF bullpen gives up 11 runs, 18 hits in 8.2 innings on weekend


BASEBALL, from page 15
to record an out, ,II.. I',, four straight hits
and leaving with the bases loaded.
Steven "Paco" Rodriguez, who recorded
the save in UF's 5-4 win Friday, replaced
him. But the left-hander struggled with com-
mand, :,11 11,i, i a run and surrendering the
tying score on an RBI single.
Greg Larson was summoned, and the


right-hander stopped the bleeding. The ju-
nior was the unsung hero for Florida on Sun-
day, throwing 3.2 scoreless innings while
scattering five hits.
In the eighth, Tucker added some insur-
ance with a monster grand slam to right.
"He left a changeup waist-high," Tucker
said. "I turned on it, and good things hap-
pened."
The five-run explosion in the inning gave


the Gators' reeling bullpen
needed breathing room.


some much-


Florida's heralded pitch-
ing depth struggled over the
weekend, as its pen allowed
11 runs and 18 hits in 8.2 in-


u n,, nings.
On Saturday, after a
strong start by Brian Johnson, who collected
his second homer of the year with a two-run


shot Sunday, the bullpen collapsed, giving
up six runs with the game tied in the eighth
en route to a 7-2 loss.
"That happens from time to time," Tucker
said. "We have one of the best bullpens there
is out there. [Sunday] just showed we can
pick each other up. Sometimes the hitting
has struggled and the pitchers have put up a
zero, or the pitchers have had a rough inning,
and we get a run the very next inning."

UF GOLF

Florida men's team brings


home SEC Championship


By ALEX PECKHAM
Alligator Writer

After a seven-year drought, the Florida men's
golf team captured the Southeastern Conference
Championship tournament Sunday.
The No. 5 Gators' 8-over-par score for the
event was enough to beat No. 3 Alabama.
An already memorable day for Florida was
made unforgettable by fifth-year senior Andres
Echavarria winning the individual title in a dra-
matic, sudden-death playoff against LSU's John
Peterson.
"I can't put my emotions into words right
now," Echavarria said. "I've been through tough
times as a Gator, and this win is the product of
five years of hard work and preparation."
Florida was able to maintain the six-stroke
lead it held going into Sunday's final round on
the strength of 1-under-par rounds by Echavar-
na and Bank Vongvanij. The Gators were also
aided by an even-par performance from sopho-
more Phillip Choi and a 3-over-par showing by
Tommy Mou.
Vongvanij got off to a hot start Sunday, at
one point notching four consecutive birdies on
the front nine to lower his score to 3-under-par
for the round. That put him in contention for the
individual title, but two bogeys on the back nine
ended his chances.


Vongvanij and Choi finished in the top five,
with Choi tying for third at even-par and Vong-
vani] coming in fifth with a 1-over-par tally.
"I was a little nervous in that we kind of blew a
six-shot lead at the Schenkel (Invitational) about
a month ago, and we hadn't won in a while," UF
coach Buddy Alexander said. "We just felt like it
was our turn to win if we played like we played
all year."
The win is Florida's 15th SEC golf title and the
university's 200th SEC Championship overall.
"We really have prepared
well as a team all year," Echa-
varria said. "Winning this
tournament was one of our
goals at the beginning of the
year, and it feels good to actu-
ally win it."
The team now has a long
Echavarria layoff before teeing off at
NCAA Regionals in nearby
Ocala on May 19-21.
The Florida women's team's struggles min the
SEC Championship tournament continued Sun-
day, as UF shot 8-over-par to finish ninth.
The Gators' woes overshadowed an impres-
sive round by sophomore Mia Piccio, who re-
bounded from a 9-over-par nightmare on Sat-
urday to shoot a 3-under-par 69. Piccio tallied
five birdies on the back nine to finish the round
under par.

Tucker, Gators crush


Bulldogs for series win


* UF OVERCAME ANOTHER
BULLPEN COLLAPSE TO BEAT
UGA ON SUNDAY.

By JESSE SIMONTON
Alligator Staff Writer
jsimonton@alligator org

While vicious storms up the east
coast brought cooler temperatures
down south, Preston Tucker was
on fire Sunday in Athens, Ga.
The Gators' slugger mashed two
home runs, including the go-ahead
shot in the seventh, '*" 1I,-, No.
4 Florida (28-9, 11-4 Southeastern
Conference) to a 14-7 blowout and
series win over Georgia (19-18, 9-6
SEC).
"The bats just came alive," Tuck-
er said. "I was looking for a pitch I
could drive, and I got what I was
looking for, and I handled it."
The versatile lefty's two-run
shot in the seventh inning snuck


over the right-field fence, and the
Gators regained their lost momen-
tum after blowing a five-run lead.
For the second consecutive
game, UF's bullpen suffered a de-
moralizing meltdown. But, unlike
Saturday, Tucker and Co. rallied
with the bats as the Gators plated
eight runs in the fi-
nal three innings.
"We wanted to
get a few runs for
Baseball them (the bullpen),
and ,...j-_. ,lld they
could shut it down
at the end," Tucker said. "They did
a great job."
Leading 6-3 in the sixth, UF
coach Kevin O'Sullivan pulled
freshman starter Karsten Whitson
and inserted Alex Panteliodis. The
unusual decision to give the junior
his first relief appearance since
March 1 backfired as the lefty failed

King takes NCAA vault title as UF falls short of Super Six


Florida sophomore gymnast Marissa King poses Sunday with her NCAA Championship trophy
after posting a 9.8750 score on vault, capturing the national title in the event.


By ALLISON BANKO
Alligator Writer

Florida's season came to a disap-
pointing close Friday night, but one
Gator left Cleveland as a national
champion.
The UF gymnastics team failed to
place in the top three in the semifinals
of the NCAA Championships on Fri-
day in Cleveland, Ohio, by a mere 0.075
points, but sophomore Marissa King
captured the Gators' first individual
title since 1998 on Sunday.
With a score of 9.8750, King brought
back the NCAA vault championship to
Gainesville. The native of Cambridge,
England, said she trusted herself to go
into her routine with the same confi-
dence she displayed in practice.
"I went up there and saw all the
parents and the rest of the team in the
stands," King said. "I gave them a smile
because I was proud they were there
and cheering for me. I just went into it
knowing I could do it."
King was joined by freshman Alaina
Johnson and senior Maranda Smith in

Bottom of lineup comes around in sweep of Tigers


* FRESHMAN CHEYENNE COYLE HIT
THREE HOMERS ON THE WEEKEND.

By STEPHEN SHEEHAN
Alligator Writer

For the past few weeks, Florida coach Tim
Walton has been waiting for production from
the bottom of the lineup.
This weekend, his patience was reward-
ed.
Led by shortstop Cheyenne Coyle's three
homers over the first two games, and third
baseman Kasey Fagan's solo shot Sunday,
UF's Nos. 6-9 hitters went 16 for 39 at the
plate as No. 10 Florida (37-7, 13-6 Southeast-
ern Conference) earned the series sweep with


a 13-4 drubbing of No. 24 Auburn (32-12,11-9
SEC).
"Two weeks ago, people were talking
about how we're down," Walton said. "Here
we are having our best weekend of the sea-
son. Once you get it going on offense, it can
be contagious."
The Tigers had no answers for the Gators'
suddenly deep lineup as UF pounded 16 hits
Sunday and set the single-game school record
with eight home runs.
Sophomore Brittany Schutte and senior
Aja Paculba each hit a pair of long balls Sun-
day as UF exploded for 35 runs in the series.
"When a team gets hot, it doesn't take a
whole lot to keep them going," Walton said.
While the middle of the order produced
at its usual pace, the team's two freshmen in-


fielders opened some eyes.
Coyle's steady production from the sev-
enth spot has been key given Fagan's incon-
sistency hitting out of the nine hole.
"The key was the bottom of the lineup
keeping us going," left fielder Kelsey Bruder
said.


Softball


"With every single se-
ries, they get better," Bruder
added. "That's to be expected
with more experience and the
knowledge they gain on how
different teams approach us."


BROMBACHER'S RETURN GOES WELL: Al-
thouLh ,r II take some time for her bicep to
get back to full strength, Saturday was a big
step for Stephanie Brombacher.


The senior ace pitched for the first time
since March 12 and tossed 4.2 solid innings in
UF's 8-2 win, giving up one run on five hits
and one walk while striking out four.
"I was a little nervous since I haven't faced
hitters in so long," Brombacher said. "My ap-
proach was a little different, but after the first
inning, I was comfortable."
Brombacher said she needed to let her bi-
cep "cool down" to limit inflammation over
the past month.
After putting her on a 50-60 pitch count
Saturday, Walton plans to take things slowly
with Brombacher as she builds up her veloc-
ity.
"We're not going to put a timetable on it,"
Walton said. "We're very optimistic she can
get better as we go forward."


UF LACROSSE

Florida avoids letdown with close win over Vanderbilt


By JOHN BOOTHE
Alligator Writer

Three days after Florida snagged
a share of its first American Lacrosse
Conference title with a dramatic
upset of No. 2 Northwestern, Van-
derbilt didn't let the Gators take the
crown outright without a fight.
After five ties and six lead
changes against the Commodores
on Sunday, the No. 6 Gators (14-1,
5-0 ALC) needed a Brittany Dashiell
free-position goal with just 30 sec-
onds left to edge Vanderbilt (7-7, 1-4
ALC) 8-7 in Nashville, Tenn., and


secure their first outright regular-
season ALC championship.
"We came out flat because we
were on such a high from North-
western," Dashiell said. "We
weren't really focused too much on
the Vanderbilt game. I know that's
how it was for me personally ... but
I had confidence the whole time that
we would come out with the win."
The Gators were limited to a
season-low 23 shots, including four
without a goal at the free-position
arc before Dashiell's final attempt.
Florida's cause was also hurt by an
injury Kitty Cullen suffered against


Northwestern. The nation's leading
scorer was limited to about 30 min-
utes of action and one assist.
"It took a lot of work, not only
by Kitty, but by
[athletic trainer]
Anna [Hale] as
well," UF coach
Amanda O'Leary
said. "We trav-
eled with train-
ing equipment
O'Leary that I had never
seen before. They
had her in the boot, they had her in
the game ready, they had her do-


ing another machine. I mean, Anna
worked a lot to make sure that Kitty
was ready to go."
O'Leary also said sophomore
midfielder Haydon Judge was lim-
ited by an injury and was "50-50"
before playing against Vanderbilt.
Sophomore Ashley Bruns
stepped up in the first half to fill the
Gators' scoring needs, recording
a hat trick and two assists. But she
was held scoreless the entire second
half as Florida managed just two
goals.
While UF wasn't doing its de-
fense any favors with a season-low


seven goals, the back line held Van-
derbilt scoreless for the last 27:16.
Dashiell's late-game heroics were
made possible when sophomore
Mikey Meagher made one of her
seven saves on a Commodores' free-
position attempt placed perfectly at
the center hash of the 8-meter arc.
"It's definitely really exciting that
we were able to go 5-0 in conference
play," Meagher said. "We've had
three conference games in one week,
so I think we were a little tired, but
it's good to know that we can work
through it and come out with the
win.


Is Reli


a debate between:


Is belief in God a menace to civilization, as the new atheists contend?
Would a secular world be a more rational, peaceful, and decent world?


The rise of Islamic radicalism has caused many people to blame Islam in
particular, and religion in general, for the rise of modern terrorism. Histori-
cally, religion, and specifically Christianity, seem to have produced persecu-
tion and bloodshed. But is this a fair characterization?

MONDAY, APRIL 18, 2011 Former VP, IFAS founder York dies at 88 HE FOUNDED IFAS IN 1964. By MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Writer E.T. York, the founder of UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and lifelong supporter of agriculture education, died Friday. He was 88. York, who also served as executive vice president and interim president at UF as well as the chancellor emeritus of the State University System, was best known for creating the institute in 1964 and developing it into a nationally recognized program. He went on to be an adviser on agricultural issues for six presidents and the chair of the federal Board for International Food and Agricultural Development. "E.T. embodied the ideas of service, loyalty and generosity," UF President Bernie Machen said in a statement. "He was an absolute giant of a man in every sense, and we will all miss UF him terribly." Administration York was born in Alabama and grew up during the Great Depression. He received a bachelor's degree in agriculture sciences from Alabama Polytechnic Institute, now known as Auburn University, served in the Army during World War II and returned to Auburn University to get a master's degree. He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Vermelle, whom he met while he was a graduate student. He also is survived by his daughter, Lisa, and his son, Travis. Funeral services will be for family, per his request. A public memorial will be scheduled at a later date. UF FINANCES 30 percent tuition hike unlikely, Machen says By HANNAH WINSTON Alligator Writer UF students may be happy to hear that their tuition won't greatly increase this fall, but it may mean cuts to academic programs and employee benefits. In Thursday's Faculty Senate meeting, UF President Bernie Machen said his proposed 30 percent tuition increase would be a far stretch to get by state legislators. "I haven't given up," he said, "but I'd say it's a Hail Mary at this point." Machen's proposal would be a onetime 30 percent increase that would help UF keep core programs and benefits for employees. It was suggested to counterThe possible increase would raise instate tuition at UF from 55,000 to $6,500 a year. Even after the increase, tuition would still be lower than the national average of about $7,600, according to CollegeBoard. com. The state allows universities to increase tuition up to 15 percent a year. For UF, that would be $750 more for tuition per semester. Machen Machen said the 15 percent increase might cover the proposed $17.5 million cut to faculty benefits at UF, but it won't cover the base act the budget cuts proposed by Gov. budget that is also proposed to be cut by Rick Scott. legislation.

Traveling from Chester, Va., he wouldn't say exactly how long he'd been there because he didn't want his competition to find out. Saturday was the first day of the fiveday-long sale, and hundreds of dealers, bookworms and penny-pinching students alike lined up hours before the sale opened at 430-B N. Main St. "This is probably one of the top 10 to 15 sales in the country," said Nudelman, a book dealer. "It's the best sale in Florida." At 9 a.m., book sale staff opened the doors to customers.

Brian McGurk went to court after discovering a blog that showed his 43-year-old ex-wife dancing at a gallery. In other Internet postings, she wrote about dancing vigorously for several hours every day. Dorothy McGurk told the court that the dancing was physical therapy for injuries she suffered in a car accident in the mid1990s.

MONDAY, APRIL 18, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 3 ON CAMPUS Rubio talks government reform at induction ceremony By MORGAN WATKINS Alligator Writer U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio visited his alma mater Saturday, joining UF students and alumni for the Florida Blue Key banquet and induction ceremony. Rubio, a UF graduate who defeated former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and former U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek in November for the Senate seat, gave the banquet's keynote speech to an audience that included UF President Bernie Machen, former Florida Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink and UF Student Body President Ashton Charles. During his speech, Rubio cited the national debt as a central threat to America and called for an end to crisis-oriented government in Washington, D.C. "We can't lurch from one crisis to the other," he said in an interview before the banquet. "We've got to figure out a way to get ahead of the issues before the issues get ahead of us." Rubio said the United States distinguishes itself from other nations not through its government but through its people. America, he said, is a nation of citizens Rubio who come from many backgrounds but are all "descendants of go-getters." "If tomorrow America decided we want to be just like everyone else -who takes America's place?" he said. "There is no one waiting in line to be who we have been." The 64 Florida Blue Key inductees, including UF basketball player Chandler Parsons, were then officially welcomed into the organization, which is the university's oldest honor and service society. According to Florida Blue Key President Craig Thompson, the organization has about 160 student members. For many in the audience, the banquet was the first opportunity they had to hear Rubio speak, he said. "He's a die-hard Gator and loves the University of Florida," Thompson said of the senator. Kiel Green, a UF junior who was inducted into Florida Blue Key Saturday, said that while Rubio's speech was more political than he expected, it included ideas that people needed to hear. "It's nice to have [our] service to the University of Florida rewarded," he said. Weather delays egg hunt By KAITLYNN FLOYD Alligator Contributing Writer The skies of Alachua were predicted to rain with Easter eggs, but 15 mph winds changed the forecast. About 2,000 people gathered for Egg Drop Alachua on Saturday at the future location of Christ Central Alachua church, located on Cellon Creek Boulevard, where plastic eggs were scheduled to drop from a hot-air balloon for children to find along with 10,000 eggs already scattered on the ground. But there was one problem: The hot-air balloon couldn't fly in 15 mph winds. After 40 minutes of attempting to get the balloon in the air, Mark Johns, lead pastor of Christ Central Alachua, improvised by starting a countdown himself, and the hunt began. It took the children 15 minutes to find all the eggs. Though the egg drop didn't go as planned, the event had different activity stations for the chilLocal dren such as face paintNews ing and bounce houses. The Easter bunny even made an early visit. Johns said he wanted to provide a safe, fun and entertaining environment for families to spend their Saturday afternoon. Johns said he hopes to drop the eggs from helicopters next year. April 18, 1971: About 400 students gather on the Plaza of the Americas to symbolically bury the living UF President Stephen C. O'Connell. The demonstration was in reaction to the arrest of 67 black students a few days earlier as they protested at the president's office and demanded his immediate resignation in the face of what they believed to be a racist and problematic university power structure. The students then march to his house to present his wife with a wreath of lilies. April 18, 1979: In the face of financial uncertainty the University Athletic Association votes to drop wrestling and women's volleyball. Dropping the programs will save the university $130,000, and all athletic scholarships for those involved will be discontinued. It's estimated 75 percent of the athletes will transfer to other school because of the cuts. The women's team will return in 1984. April 20,1982: A public relations class breaks a Guinness Book World Record by building a leather wallet that was 3 feet by 5 feet with the intent of presenting it to President Reagan. "We want Gov. [Bob] Graham to bring the wallet with him to Washington when he tries to get federal funds for the state of Florida," said UF student Richard Widick, a member of the class attempting the project. -KAT BEIN Your campus news source UF Museum expands sale of butterfly plants The Florida Museum of Natural History will host one of its largest plant sales April 22-24 to celebrate Earth Day.

The shells from Maine's signature seafood are being used to manufacture decorative tiles, trivets and drinking-glass coasters. Work is under way to utilize them in countertops and tabletops. And at the University of Maine, a professor has developed prototypes of biodegradable golf balls and plant pots made out of ground-up lobster shells. "Instead of dumping the shells at landfills, the idea is to add value to the product, which hopefully will funnel back into the industry," said David Neivandt, a professor of chemical and biological engineering who created a biodegradable golf ball with a core made of lobster shells.

MONDAY, APRIL 18, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Gainesville Borders location closes doors for good By KRISTIN LOPOPOLO Alligator Contributing Writer Borders closed its doors for the final time Sunday after purging almost its entire inventory, including furniture. Dozens of customers searched through the leftover books, magazines and CDs left in the store, 6837 W. Newberry Road, while others left with bookshelves. Most books were sold for less than $5. "It's really sad the store is gone." Nandy Ferguson general store manager of the Florida Book Store "Chords of Strength: A Memoir of Soul, Song and the Power of Perseverance" by David Archuleta was one of the last books on the shelves. "It's really sad the store is gone," said Nandy Ferguson, the general store manager of the Florida Book Store. The store's 26 employees are now out of a job, including Ferguson's husband, Brian. He was Borders' inventory manager for five years. She said hebecame close friends with his co-workers, which is another reason he will miss his job. nights before it closed. Inside, it UF English major Alexandra was silent. People tiptoed in beMurnaghan went to the store two tween bookcases and whispered Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff The Borders book store at 6837 W. Newberry Road sits empty after its last weekend of business. The company filed for bankruptcy in February and is closing about 200 stores to make the company profitable. to their friends. Customers glared at a man who sneezed, as if the noise bothered them. "I felt like I was in a library," she said. "It was very eerie." The store is one of 200 within the Ann Arbor, Mich.,-based company to close due to lack of sales. The business filed for Chapter 11 reorganization in February. The Gainesville branch opened in November 1999 but was placed on Borders'list of "underperforming stores." Its closure was announced Feb. 16, and the location had closeout sales since then. The store recently had signs in the windows announcing 80 to 90 percent off the store's inventory. David Denslow, a UF economics professor, said the increase of sales in electronic books on iPads and Nooks contributed to the store's downfall. The ebook of the New York Times bestseller, "Water for Elephants," is $4.17 on Amazon. Amazon's hardcover edition is $16.29. The large paperback version is sold for $14.95 at Borders stores that are still open. The sale, held twice a year, usually brings in about $150,000 FRIENDS, from page 1 "I'm in heaven," she said as she put a $3, unopened Led Zeppelin record in her box. "We're all taking advantage of these prices, which you won't find ever." Pete Roode, president of Friends of the Library, said their patronage will be worth more than the shoppers know. He said the only money the Friends of the Library spends from the proceeds is what's needed to pay the warehouse electricity bills. Everything else goes to the Alachua County Library District to buy books. He said the sale consistently brings in about $150,000 twice a year. Saturday brought in $91,700 from thousands of shoppers, and he said that's especially important this year Student because the state legislature is considering cutting funding for library districts. "I think it's more important than in years gone by," Roode said. A mother with a sleeping baby strapped to her back flipped through learning-to-count books. Retired experts-turned-volunteers kept watch over the books they know best. And because prices are low, book-loving students come flocking. "This is ridiculous," said Melika Hadziomerovic, a UF junior, as she sorted out what she couldn't afford. "It's everything that I want to buy but can't afford to buy in a big store." The sale, she said, is wonderful. So wonderful, in fact, that it left the English major at a loss for a fitting metaphor. But, then again, she had been waiting in line since 6:30 a.m. "It's like the highlight of the semester," she said.

6, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, APRIL 18, 2011 Single Whammy Thirty-percent tuition hike looks unlikely Although most of the Editorial Board is graduating in a few days, we're happy to hear Bernie Machen's proposed 30 percent tuition increase is now merely a dream, unlikely to come true. We want everyone to have the same types of opportunities we've had while at UF, and stressing students with financial burdens doesn't help achieve that end. It seemed like our administration was willing to rain down a perfect storm of price hikes on students, especially with block tuition gaining steam despite student protests. We could have understood had the proposals been for either block tuition or a 30 percent increase, but hitting students with both at one time was nonsensical. We're thinking that's what someone told dear old Bernie to make him understand that although our students' median household income breaks $100,000 a year, there are many who are scrounging for cash and working jobs to fund their education. We're not out of the woods yet, though. The price of tuition still can increase legally by 15 percent per year until we meet the national average. It looks like no matter what we do, attending college is going to become more expensive even as Bright Futures dies a slow, painful death. Although we applaud our Machen for coming to his senses, we still have a feeling that students aren't going to like tuition prices increasing, especially for classes they're paying for but not taking under the block tuition plan. Revenue Review ith Tax Day here, we've come across news saying taxes collected on our nation's top 400 incomes amount to 10 percentage points less than those collected in 1992. Sounds crazy compared to the average drop of 0.6 percentage points, doesn't it? Well, keep in mind that 45 percent of American households pay no income taxes, according to the Tax Policy Center. The majority of those not paying, and note this doesn't mean they don't pay payroll, state and local taxes, make $50,000 or less each year, but there are five million people making between $50,000 and $1 million who don't have to worry about the tax man. People in both groups have exemptions and credits to thank, but their days are likely numbered. Both sides of the aisle have been discussing ways to generate revenue through taxation, whether it be through eliminating tax breaks but lowenng the highest tax rate or through forcing the rich to pay the same percentage the average American does. We're getting ready for a long, ugly battle between people who agree we need more revenue but who disagree on who to take it from. We have to give both sides a nod for understanding the tax system is entirely too complicated as is, but Obama certainly won us over by saying he wanted to create a system where "the amount of taxes you pay isn't determined by what kind of accountant you can afford." Nicely said, Mr. President. Making that happen, however, is going to be a different story. a ll te independent forida 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 wiii be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 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?

Some shoot by in a flash while others seem to drag on for an eternity. While the jury still is out on the next twelve months, the next year is certain to be a memorable one. Crises at home and abroad still will exist. Record budget shortfalls still will be hanging over our heads, and power struggles between the president and Congress still will be playing out in our nation's capital. However, all hope is not lost. Patrick Henry said, "I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging the future but by the past." Surely, America's past has been bright. For most of the 20th century, the United States was a light to a dark and hopeless world. In addition to twice saving the world from tyranny, the U.S. survived, and recovered from, the crash of its stock market, the assassination of a president and numerous other tragedies that should have crippled this relatively new nation. While these uplifting thoughts certainly come to mind today, Patrick Henry was offering his words as a cautionary tale against those who would undermine individual liberties protected by a republican system of government. It was Thomas Jefferson who said, "History has informed us that bodies of men as well as individuals are susceptible to the spirit of tyranny." During these times of heightened national security and record budget shortfalls, all Americans must be mindful of these words. Fortunately, there is no reason America's future cannot be as bright as its past. Zack Smith Many experts often say the first letters@alligator org and hardest step on the road to recovery is recognizing a problem exists. As a nation, we have done this and are beginning to discuss the next steps necessary to treat our current financial condition. The problem, though, is that many of the remedies currently being discussed are merely superficial fixes -remedies akin to only lifting one's foot off the accelerator of a speeding car rather than wholeheartedly applying the brakes when confronted with the possibility of a crash. U.S. domestic security, national security and ultimately its protection of individual liberties at home and abroad depend on our ability to place our nation on a sound financial footing. As both Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson implied, much can be learned from history. History has seen many great nations rise but unfortunately fall from their own internal failings. The United States is at a crossroads. We can join these other nations that have fallen by the wayside, or we can reform and continue to show the world what can be rather than being remembered merely for what once was.

Government regulation not c In response to Bob Minchin' Friday, I find it surprising that or palled by intrusive government overbearing regulation believes intrusion and regulation is nece case of unwanted pregnancy. I wrong to assume a "true conserve ally conservative and not just a s the Republican party line. U U U Conservatives can't have it both ways Bob Minchin mentions that any true conservative is appalled by intrusive agencies and overbearing regulations. He then proceeds to completely contradict those principles as he talks about regulating abortion. A government telling a woman what to do with her body is not only intrusive and overbearing but also degrading. Comparing abortion to genocide is offensive toward all people who have lived through an actual genocide. It is not right to "punish" a girl for having sex by forcing her to have a baby and then pay to raise it. Conservatives will fight for that fetus until it is actually born and then refuse to give it welfare. Conservatives, make up your mind. Will it be an overbearing and intrusive government that regulates everything, or will people be alconservative s column on ie who is apagencies and government ssary in the lowed their individual rights and liberties? Rachel McGovern UF student U U U s Abortion the civil rights issue of the day till parroting I would like to say thank you to Bob Minchin for sharing his views in Friday's colChad Kimes umn "Abortion stance key to conservatism." 5EG His extremely well-written dialogue not only exposes the shallow and inhumane actions of the "pro-choice" movement but also calls conservatves to act with passion and conviction. He has inspired me to do more to make a difference in the civil rights issue of our generation. Tasya Williamson Gainesville resident Women face undue burden in child care What is with the Bob Minchin column published on Friday? It's like he doesn't even try to understand what these women are going through I will admit I am against abortions, but I at least try to understand why someone would do such a thing. How is a woman supposed to take care of a child if she gets paid a lower salary than a man? How is she supposed to take care of a child if child care costs are ridiculous? There are no American laws that give nursing women a break. Everything is about some absurd idea that people are on their own and shouldn't receive help when they desperately need it. Yes, abortions disrespect the sanctity of life, but at least they make it easier for women, especially single mothers, to take care of their children. Take Europe, for example, where women are given two months after giving birth to recuperate and are given adequate child care assistance by law. The foster care system in America is so lacking that most of the children in there aren't going to college to get an education. So if you are going to say no to abortions, at least make that choice an easier one. Yes, society is on a moral decline, but that shouldn't justify being cruel and denying aid to those who make mistakes. Umair Asghar UF student LGBT community only wants equality After reading the replies to Megan Bissell's letter, published April 13, regarding Chick-fil-A's support of anti-gay organizations, I must say that I too am an angry lesbian. The point both Andrew Robb and Ryan Galloway seemed to miss is that the university allows a corporation to profit off a Student Body that it oppresses. A business MONDAY, APRIL 18, 2011E ALLIGATOR, 7 is entitled to its "moral" convictions just as much as anyone else. However, these ideals are not consistent with the inclusive and accepting values UF espouses. It is extremely unsettling to know that my school, which insists upon cultivating a diverse student culture, continues to involve itself with a corporation that blatantly perpetuates discrimination and hate against me. UF's seemingly indifferent attitude in regard to this matter is just as good as its consent and agreement with Chick-fil-A's actions. How can one feel safe and comfortable on a campus that funds political causes directly targeting its students? As for the gross over-generalizations of the LGBT community's ability to tolerate differing opinions, I believe we tolerate screaming preachers and fellow classmates every day who express their "inability to approve of the way [we] choose to live [our lives]." We do not seek commendation, praise or even approval. I do not need my university to proclaim itself "pro-gay." All we expect is equality, and all we reject is our status as second-class citizens. If these basic needs are misconstrued as "intolerance," I feel that some of our students need a drastic reality check. Think we're on a level playing field? Think again. Katie Faris UF employee UF's Pride Student Union perpetuates LGBT stereotypes People mock what they don't understand. Last fall, our country witnessed a string of suicides by gay teens as a result of bullying. These teens weren't mocked for who they were -they were mocked because of who people assumed they were because of the labeling and gay stereotypes that have been forced upon us by specific members of our community. We are lucky to live in a city with a gay mayor. We are lucky to have been blessed recently with our own chapter of Equality Florida. We are lucky to live in a place that is as accepting as Gainesville. However, everyone else isn't as lucky as we are. In many places, organizations like UF's Pride Student Union provide a safe haven for men and women who are grappling with their sexuality, but here at UF our organization is more concerned with drag queens and perpetuating the homosexual stereotype than actually making a difference on campus. Don't beg for equality and acceptance and then blatantly promote the "cultural stereotype." Equality stems from being equal, not from making an example Jonothon Mitchell of yourself for the heterosexual Speaking Out community to mock. Programs like The Trevor Project and It Gets Better have been integral in the effort to show that the gay community is made up of a plethora of different people. For the first time, the world is able to see not all of us fit the stereotypical mold of a flaming homosexual. The community has come a very long way since a time when being branded as homosexual automatically meant you loved glitter, interior lighting and Cher. However, all you have to do is turn to UF's Pride organization, and suddenly we've been set back a hundred years. Drag shows, an event with Christian Siriano and viewings of "I Love You Phillip Morris" are exactly the type of events that cause homophobes to assume all gay men and lesbian women are exactly the same, which couldn't be farther from the truth. Do I wear womens clothing? No. Because I'm gay, am I required to think anything Lady Gaga has to say is relevant? No. Is it wrong for gay men to enjoy football or things more commonly associated with heterosexuals? No, not at all. However, many people automatically assume these things to be true. Why? Because the unfortunate truth is that organizations like Pride have made it impossible for the rest of the world to see not all gay men want to flaunt their sexuality around like they got it halfoff at Neiman Marcus. For the closeted gay man who is terrified to come out because he assumes our culture is nothing but limp-wristed, drag-queen-loving femmes, let me be the first to tell you it's not. There is nothing wrong with being proud, but there are certainly many other ways to celebrate who you are. Don't let the negative stereotypes perpetuated by organizations like Pride dissuade you from just being yourself. We don't need these events to make us feel proud of who we are. I'd have a lot more pride if blatant homosexuals would stop embarrassing our community. Jonothon Mitchell is afourth-year English major.

8, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, APRIL 18,2011 ON CAMPUS Vet school opens doors for tours, animal adoptions By RACHEL STEPHENS Alligator Contributing Writer Eight-year-old Kendal Binkley loves horses and wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up. On Saturday, she got a glance of what a day in the life of a vet looks like. Binkley and her mother came from Lake Mary to join more than 1,000 others at the UF College of Veterinary Medicine's annual open house. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., visitors toured the animal hospitals, petted animals and observed medical equipment in use on live animals. This year's event featured the addition of the new UF Small Animal Hospital tour and pet adoptions. Groups of about 20 people were led on 30-minute tours through the first floor of the new hospital, which contains the emergency receiving area and exam rooms. On the tour, people were showed the emergency room, the intensive care unit and progressive care unit. Guests also got to see an array of about 60 different dogs and cats available for adoption. The animals were provided by Helping Hands Pet Rescue, a local volunteer animal adoption agency. "Part of our mission here is to encourage people to join our profession." Dana Zimmell chief of staff of the UF Veterinary Hospitals Along with tours and adoptions, this year's open house also featured events specifically geared for children, according to Dana Zimmel, the chief of staff of the UF Veterinary Hospitals. "Part of our mission here is to encourage people to join our profession, and it starts at a young age," Zimmel said. "And so we want to expose people when they're small about this career path." The UF Veterinary Hospitals hosted a pet-drawing competition for children at local elementary schools to raise interest in the event. A teddy bear clinic also was available for children who needed to have their stuffed animals repaired, she said. Lectures were given for parents and teens who were interested in what it takes to get into the UF College of Veterinary Medicine, Zimmel said. UF has the only veterinary school in Florida, and about 800 people apply for only 100 spots given each year. Dating Tip #2 8 out of 10 UF students find a drunk person less attractive.

14, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, APRIL 18,2011 Familiar struggles on beam come back to haunt Gators in NCAA semifinals GYMNASTICS, from page 15 been a wreck all weekend. I knew the same things were going through her head -all that I've been through, and now to end on this amazing note was just a blessing." Despite the heartfelt ending to Smith's career as an individual, the final moments of the Gators' 2011 season were far more bitter than sweet. UF finished fourth in Friday night's semifinals with a final score of 196.125, coming in just behind third-place Utah's 196.2. Utah joined the top two finishers from the second session, Nebraska and Alabama, in the Super Six. Saturday, the Crimson Tide became national champions. The blockade that held UF back from the chance to duke it out for the title was all too familiar. It was no secret that the balance beam was Florida's weakest event throughout the season. Following a string of flawed beam routines in the NCAA North Central Regionals on April 2, the team honed in on its biggest splinter in the practices leading up to the weekend's competition. The Gators created pressure situations while performing intrasquads on the beam nearly every day prior to Friday, and the gymnasts said their confidence level had increased and their routines had improved as the meet grew closer. Faehn said the team had at least seven intrasquads since regionals -all without one mistake, without one fall. But when the fifth-seeded Gators jumped onto the event to open the meet, all of their hard work seemed to vanish almost immediately. Florida's first beam performer, junior Elizabeth Mahlich, fell off the beam, stumbling to a disappointing 9.275. Moments later, Johnson wobbled her way to a 9.2. Florida's gymnasts posted two of the meet's four lowest scores in the event. Smith "I really don't know what happened," freshman all-arounder Mackenzie Caquatto said. "We had a good practice [Thursday], and warm-up was great. It is just one of those fluky things, I guess. Faehn wondered in retrospect if she made a mistake slating Mahlich as the beam's opener after her shaky regional performance. "Even though she hit every intrasquad, she probably still had that in the back of her head and didn't have the confidence to go up aggressively," Faehn said. "It made everyone tight when she had a mistake." After beam, the Gators had a bye, giving them time to recharge before the remaining three events. On floor, Johnson and Smith had particularly impressive performances, as each earned an impressive 9.9 and King added a 9.925. The Gators also had solid vault and bars routines, with each gymnast scoring a 9.725 or better. Though some performances had missed landings, there weren't any major mistakes. But, it was too little, too late. "We had a really big hole to fill and just couldn't come out of it," senior Alicia Goodwin said. What made the run especially stinging was Florida's impressive year leading up to the competition. The Gators at one point held a No. 1 national ranking and beat Alabama, Utah and Nebraska in their regular season. "It is extremely disappointing because we know how talented this team is," Faehn said. "But I told them talent doesn't win championships -you've got to stay on the equipment. Unfortunately, we didn't do that." Normally reliable UF bullpen gives up 11 runs, 18 hits in 8.2 innings on weekend BASEBALL, from page 15 right-hander stopped the bleeding.

On Saturday, after a strong start by Brian Johnson, who collected his second homer of the year with a two-run shot Sunday, the bullpen collapsed, giving up six runs with the game tied in the eighth en route to a 7-2 loss. "That happens from time to time," Tucker said. "We have one of the best bullpens there is out there. [Sunday] just showed we can pick each other up. Sometimes the hitting has struggled and the pitchers have put up a zero, or the pitchers have had a rough inning, and we get a run the very next inning."

Sports MONDAY, APRIL 18, 2011 Florida men's team brings home SEC Championship By ALEX PECKHAM Alligator Writer After a seven-year drought, the Florida men's golf team captured the Southeastern Conference Championship tournament Sunday. The No. 5 Gators' 8-over-par score for the event was enough to beat No. 3 Alabama. An already memorable day for Flonda was made unforgettable by fifth-year senior Andres Echavarria winning the individual title in a dramatic, sudden-death playoff against LSU's John Peterson. "I can't put my emotions into words right now," Echavarria said. "I've been through tough limes as a Gator, and this win is the product of five years of hard work and preparation." Florida was able to maintain the six-stroke lead it held going into Sunday's final round on the strength of 1-under-par rounds by Echavarna and Bank Vongvanij. The Gators were also aided by an even-par performance from sophomore Phillip Choi and a 3-over-par showing by Tommy Mou. Vongvanij got off to a hot start Sunday, at one point notching four consecutive birdies on the front nine to lower his score to 3-under-par for the round. That put him in contention for the individual title, but two bogeys on the back nine ended his chances. Vongvanij and Choi finished in the top five, with Choi tying for third at even-par and Vongvanij coming in fifth with a 1-over-par tally. "I was a little nervous in that we kind of blew a six-shot lead at the Schenkel (Invitational) about a month ago, and we hadn't won in a while," UF coach Buddy Alexander said. "We just felt like it was our turn to win if we played like we played all year." The win is Florida's 15th SEC golf title and the university's 200th SEC Championship overall. "We really have prepared well as a team all year," Echavarna said. "Winning this tournament was one of our goals at the beginning of the year, and it feels good to actually win it." The team now has a long Echavarria layoff before teeing off at NCAA Regionals in nearby Ocala on May 19-21. The Florida women's team's struggles in the SEC Championship tournament continued Sunday, as UF shot 8-over-par to finish ninth. The Gators' woes overshadowed an impressive round by sophomore Mia Piccio, who rebounded from a 9-over-par nightmare on Saturday to shoot a 3-under-par 69. Piccio tallied five birdies on the back nine to finish the round under par. ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Tucker, Gators crush Bulldogs for series win UF OVERCAME ANOTHER BULLPEN COLLAPSE TO BEAT UGA ON SUNDAY. By JESSE SIMONTON Alligator Staff Writer jsimonton@alligator org While vicious storms up the east coast brought cooler temperatures down south, Preston Tucker was on fire Sunday in Athens, Ga. The Gators' slugger mashed two home runs, including the go-ahead shot in the seventh, propelling No. 4 Florida (28-9, 11-4 Southeastern Conference) to a 14-7 blowout and series win over Georgia (19-18, 9-6 SEC). "The bats just came alive," Tucker said. "I was looking for a pitch I could dnve, and I got what I was looking for, and I handled it." The versatile lefty's two-run shot in the seventh inning snuck over the right-field fence, and the Gators regained their lost momentum after blowing a five-run lead. For the second consecutive game, UF's bullpen suffered a demoralizing meltdown. But, unlike Saturday, Tucker and Co. rallied with the bats as the Gators plated eight runs in the fiBaseball nal three innings. "We wanted to get a few runs for them (the bullpen), and hopefully they could shut it down at the end," Tucker said. "They did a great job." Leading 6-3 in the sixth, UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan pulled freshman starter Karsten Whitson and inserted Alex Panteliodis. The unusual decision to give the junior his first relief appearance since March 1 backfired as the lefty failed SEE BASEBALL, PAGE 14 King takes NCAA vault title as UF falls short of Super Six Florida sophomore gymnast Marissa King poses Sunday with her NCAA Championship trophy after posting a 9.8750 score on vault, capturing the national title in the event. By ALLISON BANKO Alligator Writer Florida's season came to a disappointing close Friday night, but one Gator left Cleveland as a national champion. The UF gymnastics team failed to place in the top three in the semifinals of the NCAA Championships on Friday in Cleveland, Ohio, by a mere 0.075 points, but sophomore Marissa King captured the Gators' first individual title since 1998 on Sunday. With a score of 9.8750, King brought back the NCAA vault championship to Gainesville. The native of Cambridge, England, said she trusted herself to go into her routine with the same confidence she displayed in practice. "I went up there and saw all the parents and the rest of the team in the stands," King said. "I gave them a smile because I was proud they were there and cheering for me. I just went into it knowing I could do it." King was joined by freshman Alaina Johnson and senior Maranda Smith in the floor exercise finals, where Smith finished in a three-way tie for second place with a 9.9 in her final performance as a Gator. Johnson, meanwhile, became the first Gator to compete in three individual events since 1998, performing on vault, bars and floor. Though she didn't place in the top three in her events, UF coach Rhonda Faehn said she was pleased with the newcomer's performance. After her lengthy journey through what she once thought was a careerending injury, Smith said it was an emotional moment. "There were tears in my eyes but I had to stop that and get focused," Smith said. "I wanted to remember every moment of the minute and 30 seconds I was up there for my final routine." Smith said she had always wanted to compete in the floor finals, and to have her dream come true in her final year was amazing. "I saluted the judges, I looked up at [my parents] and I knew they were emotional," Smith said.

16, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, APRIL 18,2011 Bottom of lineup comes around in sweep of Tigers FRESHMAN CHEYENNE COYLE HIT THREE HOMERS ON THE WEEKEND. By STEPHEN SHEEHAN Alligator Writer For the past few weeks, Florida coach Tim Walton has been waiting for production from the bottom of the lineup. This weekend, his patience was rewarded. Led by shortstop Cheyenne Coyle's three homers over the first two games, and third baseman Kasey Fagan's solo shot Sunday, UF's Nos. 6-9 hitters went 16 for 39 at the plate as No. 10 Florida (37-7, 13-6 Southeastern Conference) earned the series sweep with a 13-4 drubbing of No. 24 Auburn (32-12, 11-9 SEC). "Two weeks ago, people were talking about how we're down," Walton said. "Here we are having our best weekend of the season. Once you get it going on offense, it can fielders opened some eyes. Coyle's steady production from the seventh spot has been key given Fagan's inconsistency hitting out of the nine hole.

The Tigers had no answers for the Gators' "With every single sesuddenly deep lineup as UF pounded 16 hits ries, they get better," Bruder Sunday and set the single-game school record added.

The senior ace pitched for the first time since March 12 and tossed 4.2 solid innings in UF's 8-2 win, giving up one run on five hits and one walk while striking out four. "I was a little nervous since I haven't faced hitters in so long," Brombacher said. "My approach was a little different, but after the first inning, I was comfortable." Brombacher said she needed to let her bicep "cool down" to limit inflammation over the past month. After putting her on a 50-60 pitch count Saturday, Walton plans to take things slowly with Brombacher as she builds up her velocity. "We're not going to put a timetable on it," Walton said. "We're very optimistic she can get better as we go forward." UF LACROSSE Florida avoids letdown with close win over Vanderbilt By JOHN BOOTHE Alligator Writer Three days after Florida snagged a share of its first American Lacrosse Conference title with a dramatic upset of No. 2 Northwestern, Vanderbilt didn't let the Gators take the crown outright without a fight. After five ties and six lead changes against the Commodores on Sunday, the No. 6 Gators (14-1, 5-0 ALC) needed a Brittany Dashiell free-position goal with just 30 seconds left to edge Vanderbilt (7-7, 1-4 ALC) 8-7 in Nashville, Tenn., and secure their first outright regularNorthwestern.
