Common Grounds to play swan song in June


* THE VENUE HAS BEEN OPEN FOR 15 YEARS.

By ALEX ORLANDO
Alligator Staff Writer

Demand brought them here. Demand for a new place to
play shows. Demand to see the next big band Gainesville had
to offer. Demand for a new place to meet old friends.
But some say that the tide of enthusiasm for local music
has ebbed. Somewhere along the 15 years where Common
Grounds acted as a veritable barometer for Gainesville music,


the peak shifted and the crowds have thinned like the hair of
diehard Gainesville musicians.
The last show brought out a crowd of about 50 to the cinder
block tin-roofed warehouse that was once a feed store and sev-
eral other night clubs at 210 SW Second Ave., but then again it
was a Sunday.
Four bands -Ancient River, Only Thieves, The Gris Gris
Boys and Lindsey Mills and the Predators-took to the set up
on the floor in front of the stage between two huge speakers
sitting on steel drums. All were from Gainesville, save Only
Thieves, who were on the last night of their tour before head-

ing home to Tallahassee. That's the standard place setting for
smaller shows, said Jason Rockhill, Common Grounds owner
since 2004.
The crowd stood in a semi-circle at a 15-foot radius from
the band. Some nursed PBR Tall Boys as they watched. A duo
of young 20-somethings broke from the crowd to twirl to the
heavy-hitting guitar of Only Thieves. Golden beer sloshed in
their plastic cups at they swayed.
But this wasn't always the norm.
Rockhill said he's seen nights when close to 200 sweaty bod-
ies jammed between the walls and churned up mosh pits for
bands like Against Me! and Less Than Jake- both of Gainesville
fame. He's seen them pack in for the likes of Kenny Chesney,
Zach Brown Band and Black Keys. He's seen nights when the
whole crowd sat on the floor to watch one man and his acoustic
guitar. He's seen calm nights and bar fights.
For the rest of the month, he said he plans to rekindle those
shows by inviting back old favorites. Against Me! has already
confirmed a gig on May 24. Rockhill said there will be more,
but none that he can confirm yet.
"You hold the place together with spit and duct tape and
whatever and whatever and, you know, you hope it all works
out," he said of his time here.
But at the end of next month, those nights will end, and
Gainesville's music scene will have to play another tune.
Asked why he was shutting the doors, Rockhill couldn't
point to any one reason. On the venue's website, common-
groundslive.com, he wrote that it was time to move on.
But smaller turnouts in recent years might have played a
part.
. . - if this place was a gold mine, we wouldn't be
closing," he said.
While Ancient River went through sound checks, Chris Wol-
lard, who made his name in Gainesville punk band Hot Water
Music, slouched on a bar stool on the outdoor bar known only
as "the porch" while he thought about the countless times he's
taken the stage.
He's been coming since Common Grounds was just a cof-
fee shop at 919 W. University Ave. in 1995. In 2004, when the
venue moved to the warehouse on Second Avenue, he made
his mark on the place.
He ran his arm along the length of the forest green fence
around the outdoor seating area. "I painted that." He slapped
the wood of the bar he was leaning on. "I painted this, too." He
pointed to a Miller High Life bar mirror a few feet above his
head. "See that? I hung that there."

Machen discusses plans to offset state budget cuts


Tuition will increase by 15 percent each year


By EMILY MORROW
Alligator Writer

Though UF President Bernie Ma-
chen promised no programs or per-
sonnel would be cut this year in the
face of a $33-millihon-budget reduc-
tion, he can't speak with confidence
about the future.
Undergraduate tuition will in-


crease 15 percent every year for the
next three years, faculty's paid time
off may be decreased, and if budget
cuts from the state continue, pro-
grams with low enrollment may be
cut.
Machen addressed some of the
university's proposed immedi-
ate and long-term solutions for the
budget cuts that have hit UF for the


fourth time in five years at a Faculty
Senate meeting Thursday.
"We're going to try to find as
many one-time revenue sources
as we can
UF to get us
Administration through
most of
next year," Machen said, "but by
a year from this summer, July '12,


we've got to have recurring rev-
enues to cover that deficit."
For the 2011-2012 fiscal year,
the budget gap will be covered by
the tuition increase and the use of
non-recurring funds, such as a $6
million contribution from the Uni-
versity Athletic Association and the
$3.8 million given to UF by the state.
However, this is only a temporary
fix.
Machen is looking into options


such as increasing the amount of
money auxiliary programs, such as
the UAA or the Department of Hous-
ing and Residence Education, must
pay as overhead to operate within
the university. Overhead costs for
research may also be increased.
There could also be changes to the
structure of UF employees' leave.
For example, employees may now
be required to use their leave for the

You're getting a United States visa! Oh, no, wait a minute


WASHINGTON - For a few joyful
days, more than 20,000 people around the
world thought they literally won the lottery
and a chance to come and live legally in the
United States.
But, the State Department said Friday, it
had computer problems and have to run the
annual visa lottery again.
The decision reopens competition for
50,000 wild-card visas for people who oth-
erwise would have little hope of qualifying.


About 15 million had applied,.
But the glitch, blamed on an in-house
programming error, dashes the hopes of
people like Max, a 28-year-old German
man.
"It's like you won $100,000, and then
they just take it away from you and it's
gone,"
The State Department apologized.

Pa. man survives lightning
strike at campsite
INDUSTRY, Pa. - Police say
a Pennsylvania man has sur-
vived a lighting strike while
helping set up tents for a Boy
Scout outing.
Police in the town of Indus-
try say the 49-year-old man was
standing by a tree hit when he
was struck by a bolt of lightning
at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday.
Industry officer Aaron Lopez
says the man and others were
moving scouts and camping
supplies off the site as a thun-
derstorm approached.
Lopez says no children were
nearby when the man was
struck. The man was up and
walking around when police
arrived, though he was treated
later at a hospital for a wound
where the lightning bolt appar-
ently exited his body.
Police are not identifying the

Florida's tiniest school-
house to keep doors open
DUETTE - The doors of
what may be Florida's tiniest
school will remain open this fall
despite long odds.
Duette Elementary in the
Tampa Bay area has an enroll-
ment of just 13 students in
kindergarten through fourth
grade.
Opened in 1930, it bills itself
as the state's last one-teacher
school.
Manatee School District cut
the school's funding two years
ago. But 63-year-old Donna
King has kept it afloat, running
it without a paycheck as a char-
ter school.
As a charter school, it has
struggled to raise funds, but
King has opened registration
for the fall and says she'll fight
to keep the school alive.

Mail carriers pick up, drop off food for national drive


* THE FOOD DRIVE WILL CONTINUE
THROUGH SATURDAY.

By EMILY MORROW
Alligator Writer
Saturday's thunderstorms did not disrupt
Gainesville's mail delivery, nor did they deter
letter carriers from - l... _ir, ', 56,000 pounds of
food for the nationwide Stamp Out Hunger
food drive.
"It's business as usual," said Bill Logeson,


Gainesville's postmaster. "We still deliver
mail today, so we're still going to pick up the
food."
Now in its 19th year, Stamp Out Hunger
occurs the second Saturday of every May
and is the largest food drive in the nation.
Primarily organized by the National Asso-
ciation of Letter Carriers, donations are left in
mailboxes and picked up by letter carriers as
they go along their usual mail routes.
While the rain poured down, Logeson
and about 40 volunteers stood on the 34th
Street post office's covered loading dock.


The trucks started ,. .111, ." i. around 3 p.m.
Volunteers unloaded 600 pounds of canned
goods, peanut butter, cereal and pasta from
each truck waiting trucks from four local food
pantries receiving donations.
These donations come at a perfect time,
Logeson said, as food
Around pantries usually see an in-
Gainesville crease in donations during
the holiday season, but fall
into a lull during the summer months.
Coordinators were expecting this year's
drive to surpass last year's efforts, which col-


elected 79,000 pounds of food.
The rain had a lot to do with the shortage,
said Tony Tallerico, NALC food drive coordi-
nator.
Letter carriers will continue to pick up
donations throughout the rest of the week.
Tallerico said he expects to see another 10,000
pounds of food donated by Saturday.
"We probably won't get that ultimate
number we hit last year," he said. "But every
charity will still get 16,000 to 17,000 pounds of
food. That should get them through the holi-
day season."

UF construction professor nails top teaching award


* HE HAS ALSO WON HIS COLLEGE'S TEACHER OF
THE YEAR AWARD.

By GABRIELA ROSIAS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Jim Sullivan's ,.1 , .11. is running out of room.
It is lined with awards he has received over the course of his
three-year teaching career, including his personal favorite: the
student-made "2011 Awesome Award."
In April, he had to find some more room when he was
awarded the Associated Schools of Construction's 2011 Na-
tional Teaching Excellence Award at the organization's 47th
Annual International Conference in Nebraska.
Sullivan said his favorite part of the job was the quality of
his students.
"The building construction students are great," he said.
"They are hard-working, diligent and fun. Teaching is like hav-
ing 60 construction interns at a job site."
Christopher Silver, dean of the College of Design, Construc-
tion and Planning, said Sullivan is one of the more popular pro-
fessors among students because of the time and personalized
attention he gives them.
Sullivan, a UF alumnus, has been teaching at the school for
the past three years. He is in charge of construction techniques
and surveying classes, and also teaches graduate-level sustain-
ability courses.
He first became interested in building construction because
of a job he took to pay for his undergraduate degree in adver-
tising and master's degree in mass communication.
After working a part-time construction job to pay for class-
es, he said he realized it was his calling. He went on to get a
master's degree and doctorate in building construction.
Sullivan became involved in the construction business, but
then realized teaching better fit his lifestyle.

James Sullivan, assistant professor of building construction, poses next to the Steel Learning Statue on the north lawn
of Rinker Hall. He received the Associated Schools of Construction 2011 National Teaching Excellence Award.


And he's been racking up awards ever since.
Not only has Sullivan been recognized nationally, said
Silver, but he also received the college's Teacher of the Year
Award and the Dean's Faculty Service Award at the school's


commencement ceremony.
"He has a lot of interaction with students, likes working
with them and he's good at it," Silver said. "I'm not surprised
he won."

Southwest adds new weight room


By JONNY SHIVER
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Southwest Recreation Center's weight room is under-
going a serious face lift tl- ........ -- ., r.I I .. ', a $16.3 million
expansion completed last fall.
The cost of the renovation will be covered by money left
over from the expansion funded by the Capital Improvement
Trust Fund.
Out-of-date and worn out equipment will be replaced
and d,., I: . I11- will be added along with an Olympic-style
weight section that will include half racks, bumper weights
and chalk.
At least 12 staff members, some from the current pool of
about 100 student employees along with some new hires, will
be certified to assist lifters in the Olympic-style section.
The renovation should also take care of congestion as stu-
dents crowd in for Fall-semester workouts.
Part of the numbers problem lies in the floor, said Katie
Roberts, a fitness coordinator at Southwest Rec. She said much
of the current flooring isn't able to handle heavy weights
dropped on it, so most of the free weights are restricted to


certain areas.
A new flooring system designed for the abuse of a heavy
duty weight room, known as Infinity Floors, will allow
weights to be spread out over a larger area, Roberts said.
Two industrial-strength ceiling fans known as Big Ass
Fans will be installed to combat the heat and control air flow.
The renovation includes aesthetic touches as well.
For those who use the weight room during peak hours,
the dozens of sweaty people mixed with poor circulation can
drive the temperature up.
"It gets really hot back here when it's crowded," said
Brooke Burkins, a sophomore biology student.
The light fixtures will be replaced with a more i, .... -
ficient model that produces more light per unit. Water-bottle-
filling dispensers will be installed, and the stark-white walls
will receive a fresh coat of paint along with Gator-themed
vinyl graphics.
Burkins said the new .. .1 ,11 i:l *,. her want to work out
more.
"A sweet place to work out motivates you," she said.
The weight room will remain open throughout the reno-
vation.


For fans, venue's close marks end of era


G ROUNDS, from page 1

Inside is a hodgepodge of odds and
ends Rockhill found to decorate the
place. Most of the lighting comes from
strings of Christmas lights hanging on
the walls year round. Tables are made
with 40-gallon steel drums. Deer heads
and stuffed fish hang on the walls.
In the men's bathroom, :II. ll.
graffiti written in silver sharpie covers a
"right lane must turn right" street sign.
Band names are drunkenly etched into
corners. Torn posters promoting the last
few shows hang above urinals.
Dianya Markovits, 33, a regular for
the past six years, said she'll remember
those as the cleanest bathrooms of any
Gainesville venue.
She remembers her first time getting
coffee when she was in college in 1998


when it was still on University Avenue.
She saw Against Me! for the first time
there in 2000.
Every week, she checked the web-
site for show listings, usually finding
something she liked.
"When I went out, I wanted to
come here."

Common Grounds patron

"When I went out, I wanted to come
here," she said. "This was my spot."
As the Gris Gris Boys, a Southern
punk band, took the last spot for the
night, hoots from friends in the audi-
ence welcomed them on.
Rob MgGregor, 44, pounded out
chords on his Gibson SG. From the


neck up, with short hair and glasses, he
looked like someone you might find in
a cubicle on a weekday. But his brown
T-shirt, skinny black jeans and sneak-
ers said otherwise. As a member of 11
Gainesville bands that he can name off
the top of his head over 25 years, he
reckons he's played around 70 shows at
Common Grounds. He even played in
the same room when it was under the
name The Covered Dish, a name only
Gainesville *...::I, . i..*il,- look back on.
This would be one of the last.
For McGregor, the close means more
than finding another place to play. It's a
sign of d i,.1-i,, - support for live mu-
sic in his town.
"When [people] talk about
Gainesville, they talk about the
Gainesville murderer, the Gators and
the Gainesville music scene," he said.


Dorms to get


new furniture
By EMILY MORROW
Alligator Writer

By 2016, students will be able to sit in their dorm
room chairs free from the constant fear of falling
backward.
The Department of Housing and Residence Edu-
cation announced Thursday its plans to replace all
the student room furniture in residence halls by
2016.
The department has an ongoing replacement plan
for residence hall furniture, but Sharon Blansett,
the assistant director of housing, said the depart-
ment had fallen behind schedule on replacements.
"We decided that to catch up, we needed to replace
all of the student furniture in the next five years," she
said. "Then we can start fresh."
Upward of 7,500 beds, mat-
Around tresses, dressers, desks and desk
Gainesville chairs will be replaced by furni-
ture designed to be space-efficient
and look more modern.
About 25 percent of student residence hall furni-
ture will be replaced this summer, beginning with
Beaty Towers, Simpson Hall, ' .1l:.- r Hall, North
Hall and late application triples campuswide - a
project that will cost about $2.4 million.
Broward East and Weaver Hall will get new desk
chairs, and all lounge furniture will be replaced in
Jennings Hall.
The total cost of the five-year project is estimated
to be more than $7.5 million.
Though the university is facing budget cuts from
the state, the department of housing is an auxiliary
program whose budget comes strictly from the rent
paid by students.
"These are not state tax monies that are so tight
right now," Blansett said. "These are monies that
we've saved and budgeted over the years so we can
do things like this."

UF administration


lifts restrictions


on travel to Haiti


By JESSICA KEGU
Alligator Contributing Writer

Improved conditions in Hai-
ti have led university officials to
revise the UF policy for travel to
the country where a devastat-
ing 7.0 magnitude earthquake
occurred in January 2010.
The amended policy, ef-
fective Sunday, now permits
graduate students to travel to
Haiti so long as they have a
.:. . -,1I.I11ii , reason, said David
Sammons, dean of the UF Inter-
national Center.
The new policy does not
require UF faculty and staff to
get approval from the Interna-
tional Center before traveling
to Haiti.
"We've had quite a few
graduate students and faculty
members return," Sammons


"It has reached a point
where the restrictions
don't seem to be nec-
essary any longer."
David Sammons
dean of the UF International
Center

said. "And it has reached a
point where the restrictions
don't seem to be necessary any
longer."
Sammons said they will con-
tinue to prohibit undergradu-
ates from traveling to Haiti
unless they are part of a formal
group approved by the univer-
sity and accompanied by an ex-
perienced faculty member.
The travel policy does not
apply to any personal travel
plans of faculty, staff and stu-
dents.


Local teachers feel budget cuts


* STATE SPENDING WAS
CUT BY ABOUT $4 BILLION.

By CLARE LENNON
Alligator Writer

When Kat DiManno teaches her
kindergarten class about plants,
she knows she could stand in front
of them and just tell them how it
all works.
But buying supplies with her
own money and building a 3-D
model with her students is the
kind of thing DiManno does. At
least it's the kind of thing she will
do until she loses three percent of
her pay.
As a public employee, Di-
Manno may have to contribute 3


percent of her annual salary to her
retirement as part of the $69.7 bil-
lion budget approved by Florida's
Congress on Saturday. The budget
cut state spending by almost $4
billion.Gov. Rick Scott now has
the bill and may either finalize or
veto it.
For Alachua County Public
Schools, this will mean a net loss
of $7.3 million School Board rep-
resentative Eileen Roy estimated
the state budget cuts would result
in a 5 to 10 percent budget loss for
county schools.
Wiley Dixon, Gainesville High
School principal, said his biggest
fear is that retirement-age teachers
will leave the profession and col-
lege students will see the held as
undesirable.


"Unless things turn around,
there is going to be a critical teach-
er shortage in Florida,"he said.
DiManno said that while the
automatic deduction of 3 percent
of her salary for retirement will
have an impact on her lifestyle,
it's the loss of professional services
contracts that upsets her.
.Not everyone opposes the
changes, though. Buchholz High
School American government
and Amencan history teacher
Jared Taber said the effects of the
new budget could have been a lot
worse.
He expected the cuts and views
them as teachers doing their part
to help keep the economy afloat.
"It's probably necessary in the
times we're in right now," he said.


Faculty's vacation, sick


leave may be reduced


FACULTY, from page 1

four days they're given off when
the university is closed between
Christmas and New Year's. Sick
and vacation leave may also be
cut down from seven weeks to
five weeks.
If the state legislature con-
tinues to make cuts to the
university's budget, Ma-
chen said, more drastic mea-
sures may have to be taken.
Increases in distance-learning
programs and out-of-state stu-
dent enrollment, a postponement
of the opening of the Harn Asian
wing, and cuts to the budgets
of administration and individ-
ual colleges are all on the table.
"So, what can you do?" Machen
asked the faculty present at the
meeting. "I'm ready to engage


ideas. There may be things we
haven't thought of."
The Faculty Senate also
passed two bills regarding UF
programs.
The first would create a School
of Advanced Dental Sciences,
a school within the College of
Dentistry that would include the
endo-
U F dontics,
Administration ortho-
dontics,
pediatric dentistry and perio-
d. .I. .1. ._ - departments as well
as a prosthodontic graduate pro-
gram.
The second bill created an
international studies bachelor's
degree program within the Col-
lege of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Both bills must be approved by
the Board of Trustees before they
can go into effect.

The silhouette of an effigy representing Moammar Gadhafi is hung during a protest in Benghazi, Libya,
Monday. Luis Moreno-Ocampo, prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague, announced
Monday that he would seek arrest warrants against the leader of Libya, Moammar Gadhafi, his son,
Seif al-Islam Gadhafi, and the country's intelligence chief on charges of crimes against humanity.

Editorial

Unforgiven

Catholic Church once

again fails to address sins

In a clumsy attempt to salvage its ever-decaying name,
the Roman Catholic Church released a letter Monday
assuring the world that despite its proclivity for ma-
neuvering through tripwires of legal culpability, it's will-
ing to play ball when it comes to its darkest secret.
"Sexual abuse of minors is not just a canonical delict
but also a crime prosecuted by civil law," the letter from
the Church's Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith stat-
ed. "Although relations with civil authority will differ in
various countries, nevertheless it is important to cooperate
with such authority within their responsibilities."
In other breaking news from the High Council of Di-
vine Obviousness, water has won its petition to remain
wet, summer has decided it will continue to be hot, and
Cleveland sports teams remain irrelevant.
While the words printed in the letter carry hints of com-
passion and a tinge of contriteness, it comes as nothing
more than antiquated, over-embellished ceremony that
may have worked in yore but carries little weight now,
similar to the church itself.
The most glaring aspect of the letter revolves around
not any statements included but those excluded. Though
the church made recommendations on how to deal with
the problem of sexual abuse, it did not lay out any explicit
regulations or consequences that specifically deal with
sexual abuse.
Simply put, the letter is filled with more shouldd" than
"shall nots." With many calling for the church to actually
wield a strong hand against the abuse that has affected un-
told numbers in the United States and across the world, the
church decided to once again throw up its hands and cling
to subjunctives instead of directly confronting not only a
religious problem but also a human rights problem.
When pressed on the issue, a Vatican spokesman said
the church could not implement a universal edict for the
mandatory reporting to local authorities because "each re-
ality is different, culturally and from the point of view of
different countries' laws."
Translation: "You know how much of a pain in the ass
it would be to try to enforce this thing? It would take -
dare we say -'supernatural strength' to actually pull this
thing off. Let's just blow more white smoke up to the heav-
ens; the aroma pleases God."
Well here on earth it smells like complete, beatified
bullshit. While we're not naive to think that the church has
the power to place its foot down and crush this serpent's
head once and for all, it does have the power to stop drag-
ging its feet.
In the Gospels, Jesus is quoted as saying "Whosoever
shall offend one of [these] little ones that believe in me, it
is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his
neck, and he were cast into the sea."
The need for granite has never been greater.
The shuffling of clerical child molesters between par-
ishes, particularly in Europe, resembles a cruel game of
carnival three-cup and needs to come to a swift end.
The time has come for Philadelphia pedophilia house
cleaning, not calls for "healing" through backdoor deal-
ing.
If not, expect no forgiveness from us.

Hipsters: A (De-)Evolution Like No Other


they're really obscure. You've probably never heard of
them.
They've grown strong. They have cluttered the
grounds of Gamesville, evolving from the primordial grass
roots of their ancestors.
The enemies of our past have changed with the times.
They are no longer the simple, passive, drug-abusing, tie-
dyed, nomadic, sexually deviant, environmentally-con-
scious, "free loving," smelly, barefoot degenerates of yore.
A new generation has embraced the mindset of hippies
and blended it with arrogance. They mark themselves with
inked astrological symbols. They treat Pabst Blue Ribbon as
if it is the gods' ambrosia. They describe themselves by rare
artistic expressions created by other people, never by any
personal merit. Without any visual impairment, they equip
large black framed glasses for cosmetic purposes alone. They
have .:.1.. i,, .... hairstyles that can confuse even the most
effeminate.
"You haven't heard of the band Moonlit Rose Petals? You
know nothing of fine arts."
Society calls these creatures "hipsters."
How did they come to be? Long ago, when hippies were
cast into the dredge of society, an acid trip among members
of the Council of Free Love resulted in a random thought
that, contrary to hippie nature, turned out to be genius. The
plan was to isolate the central characteristics of hippie culture
as a "sleeper gene" in the genetic code of their offspring. First
generation children of hippies showed no apparent signs of
"free-love" hippie bullshit. When prompted with any aspect
of the hippie mentality, these children felt the burn of evil
across their skin and vomited profusely, as is the normal re-
action to hippie sentiments. With no hippie characteristics,
these men and women became perfectly acceptable, success-
ful members of society.
But the hippies had planned for this. The sleeper gene
emerged in the -I- 11. ' i', generation. The "free-love" sen-
timent of hippies, although nauseating, was never capable


of caustic destruction. Somewhere
in transcription, "free-love" was lost
and elitist entitlement, obscurity and
the arrogant assumption of individu-
al supremacy was attained.
Hey, it could be worse. It could be
Shea Ford Scientology.
letters@alligator org Luckily, hipsters are not driven to
any type of solidarity or teamwork.
Hipsters are incredibly self-centered
and currently lack the focus to infect the masses. Luckily
their funding is better spent on improving their collection of
ironic T-shirts.
They infiltrate new technological regions of society that
hippies were incapable of infesting. They defile the Internet
with blogs pertaining to the urgency behind their pretentious-
ness. They punish right-minded individuals with a complete
denial of rationality and logic, choosing to endorse whining
and bitching as the sole means of action. Anything less than
Nietzsche is considered paltry. A hipster believes that anyone
who disagrees is an ignorant fool even though hipster logic
is based not at all on evidence or facts and solely on emotions
and "gut feelings." Hipsters are intellectually snobbish even
though they lives rely on factors that ironically contain noth-
ing intellectual. Whereas hippies held hands and spoke of
peace, hipsters dedicate their lives to competitive elitism.
With very few actions, we can approach the dramatic con-
quest of an evil enemy a la Independence Day only with less
explosions.
As long as you stay strong. If you become infected, once
you notice the tell-tale signs of douchebaggery, it will be too
late.
I sense dark times ahead. The End of Days is coming.
Expect an all-out war.
But, make sure to be on the right side.

Lost in the sauce: A hazy stumble down memory lane


Editor's Note: Across the world, millions struggle with addiction
to alcohol and drugs. These are the stories, as best as he can remem-
ber them, of one of those compulsive personalities.


Mff ~ ry name's Jack. I'm an alcoholic. It's been six years
since my last drink."
L The chorus "Hi Jack, Hi Jack," resonates from
the folding chairs of the unused Presbyterian church hall.
For two months, I've been wasting time at the "Plug in the
Jug."
Subjected to Jack's story, I take a long drag of my : I:, 11I1.....
Light and search for the Styrofoam cup that holds my fourth
coffee in the last 30 minutes.
"If anyone thinks I don't belong here, let me tell you about
my arrest," Jack says. "One night, I got drunk and robbed an
appliance warehouse."
Jack stuffs a cookie into his mouth and pauses for dramatic
impact while he chews.
He continues. "I had three TVs stacked in the alley outside
the warehouse. By then I sobered up a bit and realized the rob-
bery wasn't that well-planned. I was using a bicycle to make
my getaway."
I turn to the weathered face next to me.
"That's it. I'm outta here. I can't be this screwed up. I don't
belong here."
"You don't belong here?" he says.
"No way I'm as whacked out as these guys."
"Your dad a drunk?"
"Yeah."
"His dad a drunk?"
"Yeah."
"But you don't belong here?"
"No."
"You'll be back," his stone-face says. "I'll save you a seat."

* U U

The bartender pushes the pitcher of beer at Patsy while he
snatches his fiver and says, "What's that funny smell?"
Turkish cigarettes," I yell. " I roll them myself."
"They smell like shit," Cliff says.
"Yeah, but they're cheap."
My pal Patsy places Cliff's fresh poured pitcher on the
round table a safe distance away from where I've placed the
mescaline.
The wax paper contains a pile of gelatin mixed with the hal-
lucinogen.
When I need more rushes, laughter or ,._ -. ripples, I sim-
ply touch my index finger to my tongue and dip it into the pile
of strawberry concentrate.My friend passes me a joint.
It's 1964, and I'm 16 years old in the Bronx. The other six
customers don't have a clue. Few do in the early 1960s. Only
jazz musicians and hipsters smoked pot.


t The legal drinking age is 18, but this
joint checks library cards. This dump
would be empty without us. All but Bob,
the ex-marine, are underage.
I date Bob's daughter. After Korea, he
did five years in Dannemora for armed
Bill O'Connor robbery. Last month, Bob turned me on to
letters@alligator org pot.
"No f***** way Bob. Not after you've
been drinking, no way. I don't care how
old you are. Can't be done, impossible."
Bob says, "I'll bet you $5. We'll do it right now. I have a so-
phisticated palate."
"You're telling me after getting loaded all night, you can
taste three glasses of draught and tell the difference between
Rheingold, Schaeffer or Budweiser? You got a bet."
We blindfold Bob, line up the three seven-ounce glasses,
and he sips. "This one's Schaeffer."
I'm impressed.
"This one's Budweiser."
I'm astonished.
"Of course, the last one's Rheingold."
Remarkable. I hand him his pound and applaud.
Hours later, I'm whacked. Bob leaves and Cliff calls me to
the bar.
"I didn't want to start any problems before, but all these
taps plug into Schaeffer kegs. It's on sale this month, so that's
all we got."


"Hey mom, you know who died?"
"No. Who?"
"Mike Fitzmaurice."
Her thick brogue registers surprise. "Mike Fitzmaurice?
Dead? Is he? But sure, he didn't drink at all."
"Mom, there's other ways people die. Not everyone dies of
drink."


I'm in the back of the city bus that takes me to the Catholic
prep school where I'm a senior. Amid the confusion of cigarette
smoke and chatter, I'm squinting for the third time at a letter
my older brother sent me from France.
"Paris is getting a little boring," he says. "In August, I think
I'll jump up to Belgium, maybe cross the channel and have a
few laughs in England."
I refold the letter and replace it back within my blazer pock-
et.
Weaned on movies about exotic locals, such as "Macao" and
"Casablanca," I'm seething.
I peer through the monotony of white shirts and blazers out
at the gray streets.
I'm stuck in a five-flight walk-up with a lunatic for an old

No matter who you are, congratulations for get-
.Michelle Wax ting to this point in your life.
I urge you to do one thing: Do
UWire not go to grad school.
Most grad students be-
come teaching assistants, or TAs. I assume most grad
students do not want to pursue teaching for their en-
tire career. If they do, I'm pretty worried about the
quality of teachers coming out of grad schools.
IHaving a graduate degree is not going to guaran-
tee you a job It's not just about the degree. It's about
experience.
So congratulations, graduates. Don't go back to
school. Head on out into the world and show 'em

, The streets, change. No one plays stickball anymore. Drugs
pour in fast and furious. Everything places a distant second to

"Hey Billy man, you gotta cigarette?"
Kenny stops me as I walk up the street toward my apart-
ment building.
I reach into my shirt pocket, and for the first time see clearly
the deteriorating mess that only a year before had been the
neighborhood quarterback. Kenny's nose runs, his eyes nod,
his dirty fingernails scratch the undernourished arm that pro-
trudes from his filthy T-shirt.
Kenny's not alone.
Paul sits on the stoop and always has his face enveloped in
a No. 2 brown paper bag. I thought, "This guy's going nowhere
fast."
I'm wrong. Two years later, Paul the glue-freak becomes
Ace Frehley, the lead guitarist of Kiss.
Other friends joined the service. Vince and Charley already
"bought the farm" in Vietnam.
Shit, the war's real. Guys are dying. If I join the service,
maybe I'll die too.
Nonsense. I'm too "street smart" to die.

When heroin moves into the neighborhood, I decide it's
time to ship out. If I leave my friends and the neighborhood,
I'll stay sober.

Who's more qualified to decide Southeast Asia's fate than a

Besides defending my country, I'll see the world and get

This column will provide a hazy stumble down memory
lane. Some will find the stories funny, others offensive; hope-

Lord's Healing


Man struggles with illness


By ASHLEY LOMBARDO
Alligator Writer

Jay Lord, 51, has been struggling
with myelodysplastic syndrome
for the last three years of his life.
Also known as preleukemia, this
disorder is the inability of the body
to create blood cells. MDS causes
Lord to be extremely anemic.
To combat the anemia and keep
him alive, his body requires weekly
transfusions. However, a person can
only withstand so many transfu-
sions because of iron overload.
The most effective way to fight
this disease is stem cell surgery. But
because of a weak liver caused by
iron overload and excessive drink-
ing when he was younger, Lord will


be unable to withstand the proce-
dure. Currently, he is undergoing a
type of chemotherapy called arsenic
trioxide.
The treatment requires him to be
in the hospital five days a week for
two consecutive weeks.
He has two weeks off between
treatments but still must visit the
hospital weekly if blood transfu-
sions are needed.


Ashley Lombardo/Alligator
Top Left: A few vials of blood are taken each time
Lord comes in for a transfusion to test his blood
count. MDS leaves him extremely anemic.


Top Right: Lord's open port is protected from in-
fection and bacteria by a type of tape that helps
keep out moisture. It is impossible to take a show-
er when the port is taped, so he has to sponge
off in the sink. He says after a few days of that
"you're jonesing for a shower."


Center: People mistake Jay Lord's medical mask
for him having some type of contagious disease.
in fact, Lord's white blood cell count is often so
low that he puts himself at risk by things as sim-
ple as eating raw fruits and vegetables.


Bottom Right: Hospital visits have become so rou-
tine that he calls the nurses his "angels" and the
hospital his "home away from home".


Bottom Left: "It's a waiting game," Lord says.
When he goes in for his weekly transfusions it is
not uncommon to sit in the ward for a few hours
while the blood is cleaned and readied to go.

Florida suffers frustrating finish at SEC Outdoors


il. ii..lllpp/, l i**ll
Gators track and field coach Mike Holloway said both Florida squads were not the best teams and failed
to overcome adversity over the weekend at the 2011 SEC Outdoor Championships in Athens, Ga.


By JOHN BOOTHE
Alligator Writer

With just five events left on the
final day of the 2011 Southeastern
Conference Outdoor Champion-
ships, the Gators were primed for a
clean sweep.
The No. 2 men's team held a
28-point lead over No. 11 Arkansas
1..'I.. 11'' Terrell Wilks' win in the
100-meter dash and earlier victories
in the triple jump and 4x100-meter
relay. Meanwhile, the unranked
women's squad clung to a 96-95 ad-
vantage over top-ranked LSU.
But instead of closing strong in
Athens, Ga., both Florida teams
inexplicably collapsed down the
stretch to disappointing second-
place finishes.
"I never thought we were in a
bad place at any point in time over
the weekend," UF coach Mike Hol-
loway said. "The bottom line is we
weren't the best team there this


weekend. We had some adversity
and we couldn't overcome it, they
had some and they overcame it
so kudos to Arkansas and coach
[Chris] Bucknam."
The Razorbacks reeled off two
wins in the final five races to pull
off a 45-point swing, taking the title
by a final margin of 157.50 to 140.

Both runners won events at the
SEC Indoor Championships in Feb-
ruary.
"Not having Dumi in any event
hurts us," Holloway said. "He's one
of the elite runners in the country

Five real issues facing Gators


S spring -.. .l: :II practice is over, so they
tell me. And the Orange and Blue Debut
came and went unspectacularly.
That means you fans in the Gator Nation
must wait until August to see or hear anything
tangible related to the - .. rl: 11 I team. (Remem-
ber, arrest reports don't count.)
But that also means the time for all-impor-
tant prognostication is upon us.
On cue, Urban Meyer, as part of his new
gig as a college: - ...rl::.I analyst for ESPN, ap-
peared recently on a College . ...rl::,I Live
segment to break down the Gators :... rl: .II
team and their expectations for the upcoming
season.
(The "experts" have Florida ranked No.
18 in their way-too-early, dead-wrong-by-fall
preseason rankings.)
If you happened to be away from the
couch for this gem of television greatness, you
missed some outstandingly awkward back-
and-forth from a panel featuring Kirk Herb-
streit and Robert Smith, alongside Meyer and
former Gators quarterback Jesse Palmer.
It opened with Smith wondering how Will
Muschamp would restructure the Florida
-.. II.rl: program after it sunk beneath the ev-
er-lofty expectations in Meyer's last season.
All while Meyer sat two chairs away. Awk-
ward, as the kids say.
Palmer stepped in and said Muschamp has
already changed lots of things at Florida, in-


Ecluding closing spring
practice to the public.
Much to the chagrin
of Gators fans. Smil-
ing ear-to-ear, wrinkles
showing from years on
Matt WattS the sidelines, Meyer
Telling You Watts Up quipped, "GladI didn't
mwatts@alligator org do that."
The star-studded
panel went on to dis-
cuss such important topics as entitlement
issues, blue-collar mentalities, playing with
'fire,' team psychologists and whether Char-
lie Weis was a great hire or the greatest hire.
But what does all that mean in terms of actual
-. .. ,ri: , 11- You don't need me to tell you. Abso-
lutely squat.
So let's take a look at five real issues facing
the Gators this season:
1 -John Brantley. Is he the guy?
In the last 30 seconds of the segment, Mey-
er said quarterbacks receive too much praise
for winning, and too much blame for losing.
While true, Brantley still must prove he's the
caliber of quarterback necessary to win in
the Southeastern Conference. Regardless of
Meyer's public stance on Brantley, no one can
deny the quarterback has the most direct ef-
fect on a team's success of any other position.
If the Gators are going to be great, Brantley

UF's Zunino powers way


to SEC POY candidacy


* THE SOPHOMORE LEADS THE
CONFERENCE IN RBIs, RUNS

By JESSE SIMONTON
Alligator Staff Writer
jsimonton@alligator org

While craziness ensued this week-
end during No. 6 Florida's dramatic
series victory over No. 7 Vanderbilt,
an unfailing presence emerged yet
again to thrust the Gators back into
the Southeastern Conference Eastern
Division race.
All year, Mike Zunino, the soph-
omore catcher and son of a Major
League Baseball scout, has con-
ducted Florida's accelerating train
toward a conference championship
and potential spot in the College
World Series.
On Sunday, the right-handed
slugging backstop unloaded two


bombs including the game-winning
three-run home run in extra-innings
as the Gators (39-13, 20-7 SEC) tied
the Commodores (42-8, 20-7 SEC) for
first place in the East.
Zunino's shot not only broke the
lengthy deadlock, but it likely ce-
mented his candidacy as the lead-
ing contender for SEC Player of the
Year.
"There's no better
guy you want up in
that situation," coach
Baseball Kevin O'Sullivan
said. "He's got pres-
ence in the box."
Zunino had struggled in his brief
career against Vanderbilt, batting
just 1 for 19 before knocking a solo
homer in the seventh inning Sunday.
The backstop drove in five of Flori-
da's six runs, the third time this sea-

Lacroix rewrites record books


* THE SENIOR BECAME UF'S ALL-TIME
WINNINGEST PLAYER WITH TWO VICTORIES
SUNDAY IN THE NCAA REGIONAL

By THOMAS NASSIFF
Alligator Writer

Alexandre Lacroix is going to graduate this
summer.
After four years of studying at UF, Lacroix is
about to earn his degree in business management
at the conclusion of the summer term.
But clearly, before his time at Florida ends, La-
croix wanted to do a little more writing.
On Sunday, he rewrote Florida's record books.
The Gators' senior leader, who coach Andy
Jackson has praised throughout the season for be-
ing a role model both on the court and in the class-
room, became UF's all-time winningest player
after propelling Florida to a 4-0 win against rival
Miami in the second round of the NCAA Tourna-
ment at Linder Stadium.
With the win, the Gators captured an NCAA
Regional to go along with the Southeastern Con-
ference Tournament trophy they earned April 24.
In the last match Lacroix will ever play in front
of a home crowd, he earned his 209th and 210th
career wins to move ahead of Justin O'Neal on
Florida's career wins list.
"I thought about it a little because I knew I was
close to the record," Lacroix said.
"It feels amazing in my last home match beat-
ing this record. I know there's been a lot of great
players at Florida, and it feels great to get a couple
of wins to finish it up."
The senior captured the record with an 8-2 dou-
bles victory with partner Sekou Bangoura Jr.
Lacroix later defeated Keith Crowley in straight
sets in singles.
The usually reserved Lacroix looked up and ac-
knowledged the roaring crowd - a small thank-
you for their years of support.
With Florida advancing to the Sweet 16, Lacroix


isn't finished yet. The ultimate goal - a national
championship - is still in his sights.
"We feel like we've got a chance, but we've
only got a chance because of Alex," Jackson said.
"If anybody else gets injured or doesn't play
well, we've got some other guys we can put in to
sort of pick up the slack.
But we're very dependent on Alex, and he's ob-
viously been very dependable this year. We're ex-
cited about giving him a chance to lead us further
when we get out to Palo Alto."


UF coach Andy Jackson said Lacroix is the ultimate
leader, and the team is dependent on the senior.


Freshmen key as


Florida advances


By THOMAS NASSIFF
Alligator Writer

Florida's women's ten-
nis team compiled 25 wins,
a Southeastern Conference
regular-season championship
and an SEC Tournament tro-
phy before hosting an NCAA
Regional last weekend.
But an NCAA Regional
was uncharted territory for
half the team.
Florida's normal singles
lineup includes three players
- Allie Will, Lauren Embree
and Joanna Mather - who
have vivid memories of last
year's deep run to the NCAA
Tournament final. But the
other half of the lineup fea-
tures three heralded freshmen
who, despite having success
all year, had never played in
an NCAA Tournament.
With the help of fresh-
men Olivia Janowicz, Sofie
Oyen and Alex Cercone, the
Gators dominated the first
two rounds of the tournament
at Linder Stadium over the
weekend. On Sunday, Florida
blanked South Carolina 4-0,
clinching a berth in the Sweet
16 on Friday against Clem-
son.
Coach Roland Thornqvist


gave a simple answer when
asked to evaluate the play
of his freshmen in their first
NCAA Regional.
"Well, I guess you could
say so far, so good," Thorn-
qvist said.
Mather said her job as the
team's de facto leader hasn't
proved to be difficult this
year, saying the trio of rook-
ies came in "determined and
willing to work just as hard
as anyone else has worked on
this team."
That driving focus was on
display dur-
ing region-
als as Jano-
wicz shined
Women's with Mather
Tennis in doubles,
clinching the
point for UF in both rounds.
"They've gotten better.
They've improved and ma-
tured. They can handle the
momentum shifts better now
than they could earlier in the
season," Thornqvist said.
"And they're going to need
to if we're going to do any-
thing in this event... We're not
going to be able to reach our
goals if our freshmen don't
help us out."

UF outlasts delays, Stanford in first NCAA Tournament game


By JOHN BOOTHE
Alligator Writer

By the fourth rain delay of the Gators'
first ever NCAA Tournament game, both
Florida and Stanford had been sitting in the
hallways of UF's lacrosse facility for five
hours.
Teammates from both sides mingled and
talked, drifting in and out of their locker
rooms. Others passed the time with a cou-
ple rounds of Travel Scrabble.
As UF coach Amanda O'Leary said, it
was not the ideal start to No. 4-seed Flor-
ida's 13-11 win over 13th-seeded Stanford
(16-3, 6-0 Mountain Pacific Sports Federa-
tion).
"I'm thinking, 'Oh, boy' this is our first
one, these girls have never played in an
NCAA Tournament game before," O'Leary
said. "So I was a little concerned with how
they would handle sitting in the locker
room for four to five hours, but obviously,
they came out ready to go and ready to
play."
From the opening draw, it was apparent
which team had the fresher legs and the bet-
ter conditioning leading up to the game.
The Gators (16-3, 5-0 American Lacrosse
Conference) owned the first three posses-
sions in the half and sprinted out to a 4-0
lead on a five-minute hat trick from sopho-


more Kitty Cullen.
Each goal came as a result from a quick
strike in transition, where Florida exploited
Stanford's inability to get back on defense.
"I thought the speed was a factor, but
once our team got it settled, I thought our
defense did a relatively good job," Cardinal
coach Amy Bokker said.
Stanford clawed its way back into the
game and only trailed 5-4 at halftime, but
Florida again punished the visitors from
the opening draw to start the second.
Midfielder Janine Hillier, who tied a
career-high with four goals, blasted a shot
past Cardinal goalie Annie Read just 20
seconds into the period, while sophomore
Brittany Dashiell (three goals, two assists)
scooped up the resulting draw and fired an-
other goal just 22 ticks later.
"We still pulled through with our speed
throughout the whole game," Dashiell said.
"I think that showed because we scored a
lot of goals through transition, and we re-
ally exploited their weaknesses and played
them to our strengths."
After Cullen's fourth goal brought the
game to its final 13-11 margin, the Gators
simply played keep-away from Stanford's
defenders over the last 4:30, weaving
through traffic and double teams.
"Our young women are just so well con-
ditioned," O'Leary said. "[UF Strength and


Conditioning coach] Karen Werth does a
fantastic job with them, so I knew that any
one of them could run the ball around for
any amount of time - and they have the
heart to do it."


With the win, Florida advances to play
No. 5-seed Duke (14-4, 4-1 Atlantic Coast
Conference) next Saturday at 3 p.m. in
Gainesville with an NCAA semifinal berth
on the line.

make excuses about that."
On the women's side, the
Tigers coasted past the Gators
by 30 points - needing only
a 200-meter dash victory - as
Florida failed to place in the
top-three for the rest of the
tournament.
Earlier in the day, Florida's
men's squad positioned itself
at the top of the leaderboard
with two meet records. Junior
Will Claye captured the triple
jump with a leap of 17.24m/56-
6.75 (+2.2), and the 4x100 relay
team sprinted to a blazing time
of 38.53 seconds.
"I just went out there and
did what we always do," Claye
said. "I felt good this morning
when I woke up, and I was just


really pumped all day. It's just
like practice out there...We're
ready to go back home, get a
bit of training in and we'll be
ready for regionals and nation-
als."
The women's lone victory
of the day came from fresh-
man Fawn Mill-
er in the javelin.
Her personal-
best throw of
Track 51.46m/168-10
sealed the fourth
consecutive SEC title for Flori-
da in the event.
"We went into that meet
knowing that we could do the
things that we did this week-
end," Holloway said. "Again,
nobody on this coaching staff
walked away saying, 'Wow, I
can't believe we did that.' We


expected those girls to com-
pete that way and that's why
they're at the University of
Florida."
Both the men's and wom-
en's teams were buoyed over
the first three days of compe-
tition with individual cham-
pionships. On Friday, junior
Gray Horn took home his third
consecutive SEC decathlon
title, which was followed the
next day with wins from Claye
in the long jump and Gen-
evieve LaCaze in the women's
steeplechase.
The Gators were going for
their second men's SEC Cham-
pionship this season after win-
ning the indoor meet in Febru-
ary, while the women's team
was aiming at its second out-
door title in three years.

must be as well.
2 - The pass rush.
In 2009, the Gators ranked fifth in
the country with 40 sacks. They ac-
cumulated 34 in each of the national
championship seasons of 2006 and
2008. But Florida had just 21 a year
ago, tied for 86th in the nation.
Muschamp must get good pro-
duction from highly-touted recruits
Dominique Easley, Sharrif Floyd and
Ronald ...-11 for the Gators pass
rush to return to elite status.
3 - The secondary, minus Janoris
Jenkins.
Muschamp said recently he's
happy with the guys remaining on
the roster after Jenkins' dismissal.
But how will they line up, and can
they be effective? Senior Moses Jen-
kins, junior Jeremy Brown and soph-
omore Cody Riggs all figure to play
prominent roles.


But the Gators will also likely
have to depend on production from
freshmen like De'Ante Saunders,
who Muschamp said has impressed
thus far.
4 - Who will emerge at running
back?
The Gators situation at running
back is n utddl-d at best. Jeff Demps
and Chris Rainey are still there to
catch swing passes out of the back-
field and run stretch plays off tackle,
but who will get the pivotal 3rd-and-
1's?
5 - The schedule.
The Gators play three teams -
Alabama, LSU and FSU - that are
ranked in at least someone's pre-
season top 10, take it for what it's
worth.
Two of those teams (Alabama,
FSU) must come to The Swamp. But
the Gators also face a daunting three-
game road trip with games at LSU, at
Auburn and then against Georgia in
Jacksonville.

0the independent florida Not officially associated with the University of Florida Published by Campus Communications, Inc of Gainesville, Florida VOLUME 105 ISSUE 73 We Inform. You Decide. TUESDAY, MAY 17, 2011 Common Grounds to play swan song in June THE VENUE HAS BEEN OPEN FOR 15 YEARS. By ALEX ORLANDO Alligator Staff Writer Demand brought them here. Demand for a new place to play shows. Demand to see the next big band Gainesville had to offer. Demand for a new place to meet old friends. But some say that the tide of enthusiasm for local music has ebbed. Somewhere along the 15 years where Common Grounds acted as a veritable barometer for Gainesville music, the peak shifted and the crowds have thinned like the hair of diehard Gainesville musicians. The last show brought out a crowd of about 50 to the cinder block tin-roofed warehouse that was once a feed store and several other night clubs at 210 SW Second Ave., but then again it was a Sunday. Four bands -Ancient River, Only Thieves, The Gris Gris Boys and Lindsey Mills and the Predators-took to the set up on the floor in front of the stage between two huge speakers sitting on steel drums. All were from Gainesville, save Only Thieves, who were on the last night of their tour before headMax Reed/ Alligator Staff Dominic Lalli, producer and saxophonist for Big Gigantic, looks toward the crowd at Common Grounds in this Jan. 11 photo. Common Grounds, which has been a staple for bands and music lovers, will be closing this June. ing home to Tallahassee. That's the standard place setting for smaller shows, said Jason Rockhill, Common Grounds owner since 2004. The crowd stood in a semi-circle at a 15-foot radius from the band. Some nursed PBR Tall Boys as they watched. A duo of young 20-somethings broke from the crowd to twirl to the heavy-hiting guitar of Only Thieves. Golden beer sloshed in their plastic cups at they swayed. But this wasn't always the norm. Rockhill said he's seen nights when close to 200 sweaty bodies jammed between the walls and churned up mosh pits for bands like Against Me! and Less Than Jake -both of Gainesville fame. He's seen them pack in for the likes of Kenny Chesney, Zach Brown Band and Black Keys. He's seen nights when the whole crowd sat on the floor to watch one man and his acoustic guitar. He's seen calm nights and bar fights. For the rest of the month, he said he plans to rekindle those shows by inviting back old favorites. Against Me! has already confirmed a gig on May 24. Rockhill said there will be more, but none that he can confirm yet. "You hold the place together with spit and duct tape and whatever and whatever and, you know, you hope it all works out," he said of his time here. But at the end of next month, those nights will end, and Gainesville's music scene will have to play another tune. Asked why he was shutting the doors, Rockhill couldn't point to any one reason. On the venue's website, commongroundslive.com, he wrote that it was time to move on. But smaller turnouts in recent years might have played a part. "Obviously if this place was a gold mine, we wouldn't be closing," he said. While Ancient River went through sound checks, Chris Wollard, who made his name in Gainesville punk band Hot Water Music, slouched on a bar stool on the outdoor bar known only as "the porch" while he thought about the countless times he's taken the stage. He's been coming since Common Grounds was just a coffee shop at 919 W. University Ave. in 1995. In 2004, when the venue moved to the warehouse on Second Avenue, he made his mark on the place. He ran his arm along the length of the forest green fence around the outdoor seating area. "I painted that." He slapped the wood of the bar he was leaning on. "I painted this, too." He pointed to a Miller High Life bar mirror a few feet above his head. "See that? I hung that there." SEE GROUNDS, PAGE 4 Machen discusses plans to offset state budget cuts Tuition will increase by 15 percent each year By EMILY MORROW Alligator Writer Though UF President Bernie Machen promised no programs or personnel would be cut this year in the face of a $33-million-budget reduction, he can't speak with confidence about the future. Undergraduate tuition will increase 15 percent every year for the next three years, faculty's paid time off may be decreased, and if budget cuts from the state continue, programs with low enrollment may be cut. Machen addressed some of the university's proposed immediate and long-term solutions for the budget cuts that have hit UF for the we've got to have recurring revenues to cover that deficit." fourth time in five years at a Faculty For the 2011-2012 fiscal year, Senate meeting Thursday. the budget gap will be covered by "We're going to try to find as many one-time revenue sources as we can UF to get us Administration through most of next year," Machen said, "but by a year from this summer, July '12, the tuition increase and the use of non-recurring funds, such as a $6 million contribution from the University Athletic Association and the $3.8 million given to UF by the state. However, this is only a temporary fix. Machen is looking into options such as increasing the amount of money auxiliary programs, such as the UAAor the Department of Housing and Residence Education, must pay as overhead to operate within the university. Overhead costs for research may also be increased. There could also be changes to the structure of UF employees' leave.

Police in the town of Industry say the 49-year-old man was standing by a tree hit when he was struck by a bolt of lightning at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday. Industry officer Aaron Lopez says the man and others were moving scouts and camping supplies off the site as a thunderstorm approached. Lopez says no children were nearby when the man was struck. The man was up and walking around when police arrived, though he was treated later at a hospital for a wound where the lightning bolt apparently exited his body.

TUESDAY, MAY 17, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 3 Mail carriers pick up, drop off food for national drive THE FOOD DRIVE WILL CONTINUE THROUGH SATURDAY. By EMILY MORROW Alligator Writer Saturday's thunderstorms did not disrupt Gainesville's mail delivery, nor did they deter letter carriers from collecting 56,000 pounds of food for the nationwide Stamp Out Hunger food drive. "It's business as usual," said Bill Logeson, Gainesville's postmaster. "We still deliver mail today, so we're still going to pick up the food." Now in its 19th year, Stamp Out Hunger occurs the second Saturday of every May and is the largest food drive in the nation. Primarily organized by the National Association of Letter Carriers, donations are left in mailboxes and picked up by letter carriers as they go along their usual mail routes. While the rain poured down, Logeson and about 40 volunteers stood on the 34th Street post office's covered loading dock. The trucks started rolling in around 3 p.m. Volunteers unloaded 600 pounds of canned goods, peanut butter, cereal and pasta from each truck waiting trucks from four local food pantries receiving donations. These donations come at a perfect time, Logeson said, as food Around pantries usually see an inGainesville crease in donations dunng the holiday season, but fall into a lull during the summer months. Coordinators were expecting this year's drive to surpass last year's efforts, which collected 79,000 pounds of food. The rain had a lot to do with the shortage, said Tony Tallerico, NALC food drive coordinator. Letter carriers will continue to pick up donations throughout the rest of the week. Tallerico said he expects to see another 10,000 pounds of food donated by Saturday. "We probably won't get that ultimate number we hit last year," he said. "But every charity will still get 16,000 to 17,000 pounds of food. That should get them through the holiday season."

4, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MAY 17, 2011 UF construction professor nails top teaching award HE HAS ALSO WON HIS COLLEGE'S TEACHER OF THE YEAR AWARD. By GABRIELA ROSIAS Alligator Contributing Writer Jim Sullivan's windowsill is running out of room. It is lined with awards he has received over the course of his three-year teaching career, including his personal favorite: the student-made "2011 Awesome Award." In April, he had to find some more room when he was awarded the Associated Schools of Constructon's 2011 National Teaching Excellence Award at the organization's 47th Annual International Conference in Nebraska. Sullivan said his favorite part of the job was the quality of his students. "The building construction students are great," he said. "They are hard-working, diligent and fun. Teaching is like having 60 construction interns at a job site." Christopher Silver, dean of the College of Design, Construction and Planning, said Sullivan is one of the more popular professors among students because of the time and personalized attention he gives them. Sullivan, a UF alumnus, has been teaching at the school for the past three years. He is in charge of construction techniques and surveying classes, and also teaches graduate-level sustainability courses. He first became interested in building construction because of a job he took to pay for his undergraduate degree in advertising and master's degree in mass communication. After working a part-time construction job to pay for classes, he said he realized it was his calling. He went on to get a master's degree and doctorate in building construction. Sullivan became involved in the construction business, but then realized teaching better fit his lifestyle. Dorms to get new f urn re e By EMILY MORROW Alligator Writer By 2016, students will be able to sit in their dorm room chairs free from the constant fear of falling backward. The Department of Housing and Residence Education announced Thursday its plans to replace all the student room furniture in residence halls by 2016. The department has an ongoing replacement plan for residence hall furniture, but Sharon Blansett, the assistant director of housing, said the department had fallen behind schedule on replacements. "We decided that to catch up, we needed to replace all of the student furniture in the next five years," she said. "Then we can start fresh." Upward of 7,500 beds, matAround tresses, dressers, desks and desk a~chairs will be replaced by furniture designed to be space-efficient and look more modern. About 25 percent of student residence hall furniture will be replaced this summer, beginning with Beaty Towers, Simpson Hall, Tolbert Hall, North Hall and late application triples campuswide -a project that will cost about $2.4 million. Broward East and Weaver Hall will get new desk chairs, and all lounge furniture will be replaced in Jennings Hall. The total cost of the five-year project is estimated to be more than $7.5 million. Though the university is facing budget cuts from the state, the department of housing is an auxiliary program whose budget comes strictly from the rent paid by students. "These are not state tax monies that are so tight right now," Blansett said. "These are monies that we've saved and budgeted over the years so we can do things like this." Max Reed/ Alligator Staff James Sullivan, assistant professor of building construction, poses next to the Steel Learning Statue on the north lawn of Rinker Hall. He received the Associated Schools of Construction 2011 National Teaching Excellence Award. And he's been racking up awards ever since. Not only has Sullivan been recognized nationally, said Silver, but he also received the college's Teacher of the Year Award and the Dean's Faculty Service Award at the school's commencement ceremony. "He has a lot of interaction with students, likes working with them and he's good at it," Silver said. "I'm not surprised he won." Southwest adds new weight room By JONNY SHIVER Alligator Contributing Writer The Southwest Recreation Center's weight room is undergoing a serious face lift this summer following a $16.3 million expansion completed last fall. The cost of the renovation will be covered by money left over from the expansion funded by the Capital Improvement Trust Fund. Out-of-date and worn out equipment will be replaced and dumbbells will be added along with an Olympic-style weight section that will include half racks, bumper weights and chalk. At least 12 staff members, some from the current pool of about 100 student employees along with some new hires, will be certified to assist lifters in the Olympic-style section. The renovation should also take care of congestion as students crowd in for Fall-semester workouts. Part of the numbers problem lies in the floor, said Katie Roberts, a fitness coordinator at Southwest Rec. She said much of the current flooring isn't able to handle heavy weights dropped on it, so most of the free weights are restricted to certain areas. A new flooring system designed for the abuse of a heavy duty weight room, known as Infinity Floors, will allow weights to be spread out over a larger area, Roberts said. Two industrial-strength ceiling fans known as Big Ass Fans will be installed to combat the heat and control air flow. The renovation includes aesthetic touches as well. For those who use the weight room during peak hours, the dozens of sweaty people mixed with poor circulation can drive the temperature up. "It gets really hot back here when it's crowded," said Brooke Burkins, a sophomore biology student. The light fixtures will be replaced with a more energy-efficient model that produces more light per unit. Water-bottlefilling dispensers will be installed, and the stark-white walls will receive a fresh coat of paint along with Gator-themed vinyl graphics. Burkins said the new look will make her want to work out more. "A sweet place to work out motivates you," she said. The weight room will remain open throughout the renovation. For fans, venue's close marks end of era GROUNDS, from page 1 Inside is a hodgepodge of odds and ends Rockhill found to decorate the place. Most of the lighting comes from strings of Christmas lights hanging on the walls year round. Tables are made with 40-gallon steel drums. Deer heads and stuffed fish hang on the walls. In the men's bathroom, illegible graffiti written in silver sharpie covers a "right lane must turn right" street sign. Band names are drunkenly etched into corners. Torn posters promoting the last few shows hang above urinals. Dianya Markovits, 33, a regular for the past six years, said she'll remember those as the cleanest bathrooms of any Gainesville venue. She remembers her first time getting coffee when she was in college in 1998 when it was still on University Avenue. She saw Against Me! for the first lime there in 2000. Every week, she checked the website for show listings, usually finding something she liked. "When I went out, I wanted to come here." Dianya Markovits Common Grounds patron "When I went out, I wanted to come here," she said. "This was my spot." As the Gris Gris Boys, a Southern punk band, took the last spot for the night, hoots from friends in the audience welcomed them on. Rob MgGregor, 44, pounded out chords on his Gibson SG. From the neck up, with short hair and glasses, he looked like someone you might find in a cubicle on a weekday. But his brown T-shirt, skinny black jeans and sneakers said otherwise. As a member of 11 Gainesville bands that he can name off the top of his head over 25 years, he reckons he's played around 70 shows at Common Grounds. He even played in the same room when it was under the name The Covered Dish, a name only Gainesville locals fondly look back on. This would be one of the last. For McGregor, the close means more than finding another place to play. It's a sign of dwindling support for live music in his town. "When [people] talk about Gainesville, they talk about the Gainesville murderer, the Gators and the Gainesville music scene," he said.

TUESDAY, MAY 17, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 5 UF administration lifts restrictions on travel to Haiti By JESSICA KEGU Alligator Contributing Writer Improved conditions in Haiti have led university officials to revise the UF policy for travel to the country where a devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake occurred in January 2010. The amended policy, effective Sunday, now permits graduate students to travel to Haiti so long as they have a compelling reason, said David Sammons, dean of the UF International Center. The new policy does not require UF faculty and staff to get approval from the International Center before traveling to Haiti. "We've had quite a few graduate students and faculty members return," Sammons "It has reached a point where the restrictions don't seem to be necessary any longer." David Sammons dean of the UF International Center said. "And it has reached a point where the restrictions don't seem to be necessary any longer." Sammons said they will continue to prohibit undergraduates from traveling to Haiti unless they are part of a formal group approved by the university and accompanied by an experienced faculty member. The travel policy does not apply to any personal travel plans of faculty, staff and students. Local teachers feel budget cuts STATE SPENDING WAS CUT BY ABOUT $4 BILLION. ByCLARE LENNON Alligator Writer When Kat DiManno teaches her kindergarten class about plants, she knows she could stand in front of them and just tell them how it all works. But buying supplies with her own money and building a 3-D model with her students is the kind of thing DiManno does. At least its the kind of thing she will do until she loses three percent of her pay. As a public employee, DiManno may have to contribute 3 percent of her annual salary to her retirement as part of the $69.7 billion budget approved by Florida's Congress on Saturday. The budget cut state spending by almost $4 billion.Gov. Rick Scott now has the bill and may either finalize or veto it. For Alachua County Public Schools, this will mean a net loss of $7.3 million School Board representative Eileen Roy estimated the state budget cuts would result in a 5 to 10 percent budget loss for county schools. Wiley Dixon, Gainesville High School principal, said his biggest fear is that retirement-age teachers will leave the profession and college students will see the field as undesirable. "Unless things turn around, there is going to be a critical teacher shortage in Florida,"he said. DiManno said that while the automatic deduction of 3 percent of her salary for retirement will have an impact on her lifestyle, it's the loss of professional services contracts that upsets her. .Not everyone opposes the changes, though. Buchholz High School American government and Amencan history teacher Jared Taber said the effects of the new budget could have been a lot worse. He expected the cuts and views them as teachers doing their part to help keep the economy afloat. "If's probably necessary in the times we're in right now," he said. Faculty's vacation, sick leave may be reduced FACULTY, from page 1 deas There may be things v I~dV~LLLILLT5I L Ut four days they're given off when the university is closed between Christmas and New Year's. Sick and vacation leave may also be cut down from seven weeks to five weeks. If the state legislature continues to make cuts to the university's budget, Machen said, more drastic measures may have to be taken. Increases in distance-learning programs and out-of-state student enrollment, a postponement of the opening of the Harn Asian wing, and cuts to the budgets of administration and individual colleges are all on the table. "So, what can you do?" Machen asked the faculty present at the meeting. "I'm ready to engage havent thoUght 0f. The Faculty Senate also passed two bills regarding UF programs. Thefirstwould create aSchool of Advanced Dental Sciences, a school within the College of Dentistry that would include the U F endodontics, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry and periodontology departments as well as a prosthodontic graduate program. The second bill created an international studies bachelor's degree program within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Both bills must be approved by the Board of Trustees before they can go into effect. Short of Cash? Donate Plasma! Thousands do.

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MAY 17, 2011 Unforgiven Catholic Church once again fails to address sins In a clumsy attempt to salvage its ever-decaying name, the Roman Catholic Church released a letter Monday assuring the world that despite its proclivity for maneuvering through tripwires of legal culpability, it's willing to play ball when it comes to its darkest secret. "Sexual abuse of minors is not just a canonical delict but also a crime prosecuted by civil law," the letter from the Church's Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith stated. "Although relations with civil authority will differ in various countries, nevertheless it is important to cooperate with such authority within their responsibilities." In other breaking news from the High Council of Divine Obviousness, water has won its petition to remain wet, summer has decided it will continue to be hot, and Cleveland sports teams remain irrelevant. While the words printed in the letter carry hints of compassion and a tinge of contriteness, it comes as nothing more than antiquated, over-embellished ceremony that may have worked in yore but carries little weight now, similar to the church itself. The most glaring aspect of the letter revolves around not any statements included but those excluded. Though the church made recommendations on how to deal with the problem of sexual abuse, it did not lay out any explicit regulations or consequences that specifically deal with sexual abuse. Simply put, the letter is filled with more "shoulds" than "shall notes With many calling for the church to actually wield a strong hand against the abuse that has affected untold numbers in the United States and across the world, the church decided to once again throw up its hands and cling to subjunctives instead of directly confronting not only a religious problem but also a human rights problem. When pressed on the issue, a Vatican spokesman said the church could not implement a universal edict for the mandatory reporting to local authorities because "each reality is different, culturally and from the point of view of different countries' laws." Translation: "You know how much of a pain in the ass it would be to try to enforce this thing? It would take dare we say -'supernatural strength' to actually pull this thing off. Let's just blow more white smoke up to the heavens; the aroma pleases God." Well here on earth it smells like complete, beatified bullshit. While we're not naive to think that the church has the power to place its foot down and crush this serpent's head once and for all, it does have the power to stop dragging its feet. In the Gospels, Jesus is quoted as saying "Whosoever shall offend one of [these] little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea." The need for granite has never been greater. The shuffling of clerical child molesters between parishes, particularly in Europe, resembles a cruel game of carnival three-cup and needs to come to a swift end. The time has come for Philadelphia pedophilia house cleanings, not calls for "healing" through backdoor dealing. If not, expect no forgiveness from us. a ll te independent forida Ci Pruner EDITOR Joey Flechas Josh Isom MANAGING EDITORS The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one letter-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, style and libel Send letters to letters@aligatororg, bring them to 1105 W University A or send them to PO Box 14257, Gainesville, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

You've probably never heard of Them. They've grown strong. They have cluttered the grounds of Gainesville, evolving from the primordial grass roots of their ancestors. The enemies of our past have changed with the times. They are no longer the simple, passive, drug-abusing, tiedyed, nomadic, sexually deviant, environmentally-conscious, "free loving," smelly, barefoot degenerates of yore. A new generation has embraced the mindset of hippies and blended it with arrogance. They mark themselves with inked astrological symbols. They treat Pabst Blue Ribbon as if it is the gods' ambrosia. They describe themselves by rare artistic expressions created by other people, never by any personal merit. Without any visual impairment, they equip large black framed glasses for cosmetic purposes alone. They have androgynous hairstyles that can confuse even the most effeminate. "You haven't heard of the band Moonlit Rose Petals? You know nothing of fine arts." Society calls these creatures "hipsters." How did they come to be? Long ago, when hippies were cast into the dredge of society, an acid trip among members of the Council of Free Love resulted in a random thought that, contrary to hippie nature, turned out to be genius. The plan was to isolate the central characteristics of hippie culture as a "sleeper gene" in the genetic code of their offspring. First generation children of hippies showed no apparent signs of "free-love" hippie bullshit. When prompted with any aspect of the hippie mentality, these children felt the burn of evil across their skin and vomited profusely, as is the normal reaction to hippie sentiments. With no hippie characteristics, these men and women became perfectly acceptable, successful members of society. But the hippies had planned for this. The sleeper gene emerged in the following generation. The "free-love" sentiment of hippies, although nauseating, was never capable lution Like No Other of caustic destruction. Somewher in transcription, "free-love" was los and elitist entitlement, obscurity an the arrogant assumption of individu al supremacy was attained. Hey, it could be worse. It could b Shea Ford Scientology. letters@alligator org Luckily, hipsters are not driven t any type of solidarity or teamwork Hipsters are incredibly self-centered and currently lack the focus to infect the masses. Luckily their funding is better spent on improving their collection of ironic T-shirts. They infiltrate new technological regions of society that hippies were incapable of infesting. They defile the Internet with blogs pertaining to the urgency behind their pretentiousness. They punish right-minded individuals with a complete denial of rationality and logic, choosing to endorse whining and bitching as the sole means of action. Anything less than Nietzsche is considered paltry. A hipster believes that anyone who disagrees is an ignorant fool even though hipster logic is based not at all on evidence or facts and solely on emotions and "gut feelings." Hipsters are intellectually snobbish even though they lives rely on factors that ironically contain nothing intellectual. Whereas hippies held hands and spoke of peace, hipsters dedicate their lives to competitive elitism. With very few actions, we can approach the dramatic conquest of an evil enemy a la Independence Day only with less explosions. As long as you stay strong. If you become infected, once you notice the tell-tale signs of douchebaggery, it will be too late. I sense dark times ahead. The End of Days is coming. Expect an all-out war.

It's been six years since my last drink." The chorus "Hi Jack, Hi Jack," resonates from the folding chairs of the unused Presbyterian church hall. For two months, I've been wasting time at the "Plug in the Jug." Subjected to Jack's story, I take a long drag of my Marlboro Light and search for the Styrofoam cup that holds my fourth coffee in the last 30 minutes. "If anyone thinks I don't belong here, let me tell you about my arrest," Jack says. "One night, I got drunk and robbed an appliance warehouse." Jack stuffs a cookie into his mouth and pauses for dramatic impact while he chews. He continues. "I had three TVs stacked in the alley outside the warehouse. By then I sobered up a bit and realized the robbery wasn't that well-planned. I was using a bicycle to make my getaway." I turn to the weathered face next to me. "That's it. I'm outta here. I can't be this screwed up. I don't belong here." "You don't belong here?" he says. "No way I'm as whacked out as these guys." "Your dad a drunk?" "Yeah." "His dad a drunk?" "Yeah." "But you don't belong here?" "No." "You'll be back," his stone-face says. "I'll save you a seat." U U U The bartender pushes the pitcher of beer at Patsy while he snatches his fiver and says, "What's that funny smell?" Turkish cigarettes," I yell. I roll them myself." "They smell like shit," Cliff says. "Yeah, but they're cheap." My pal Patsy places Cliff's fresh poured pitcher on the round table a safe distance away from where I've placed the mescaline. The wax paper contains a pile of gelatin mixed with the hallucinogen. When I need more rushes, laughter or energy ripples, I simply touch my index finger to my tongue and dip it into the pile of strawberry concentrate.My friend passes me a joint.

"You're telling me after getting loaded all night, you can taste three glasses of draught and tell the difference between Rheingold, Schaeffer or Budweiser? You got a bet." We blindfold Bob, line up the three seven-ounce glasses, and he sips. "This one's Schaeffer." I'm impressed. "This one's Budweiser." I'm astonished. "Of course, the last one's Rheingold." Remarkable. I hand him his pound and applaud. Hours later, I'm whacked. Bob leaves and Cliff calls me to the bar. "I didn't want to start any problems before, but all these taps plug into Schaeffer kegs. It's on sale this month, so that's all we got." "Hey mom, you know who died?" "No. Who?" "Mike Fitzmaurice." Her thick brogue registers surprise. "Mike Fitzmaurice? Dead? Is he? But sure, he didn't dnnk at all." "Mom, there's other ways people die. Not everyone dies of drink." I'm in the back of the city bus that takes me to the Catholic prep school where I'm a senior. Amid the confusion of cigarette smoke and chatter, I'm squinting for the third time at a letter my older brother sent me from France. "Paris is getting a little boring," he says. "InAugust, I think I'll jump up to Belgium, maybe cross the channel and have a few laughs in England." I refold the letter and replace it back within my blazer pocket. Weaned on movies about exotic locals, such as "Macao" and "Casablanca," I'm seething. I peer through the monotony of white shirts and blazers out at the gray streets. I'm stuck in a five-flight walk-up with a lunatic for an old U U ,The streets, change. No one plays stickball anymore. Drugs pour in fast and furious. Everything places a distant second to getting high. "Hey Billy man, you gotta cigarette?" Kenny stops me as I walk up the street toward my apartment building. I reach into my shirt pocket, and for the first time see clearly the deteriorating mess that only a year before had been the neighborhood quarterback. Kenny's nose runs, his eyes nod, his dirty fingernails scratch the undernourished arm that protrudes from his filthy T-shirt. Kenny's not alone. Paul sits on the stoop and always has his face enveloped in a No. 2 brown paper bag. I thought, "This guy's going nowhere fast." I'm wrong. Two years later, Paul the glue-freak becomes Ace Frehley, the lead guitarist of Kiss. Other friends joined the service. Vince and Charley already "bought the farm" in Vietnam. Shit, the war's real. Guys are dying. If I join the service, maybe I'll die too. Nonsense. I'm too "street smart" to die. U U When heroin moves into the neighborhood, I decide it's time to ship out. If I leave my friends and the neighborhood, I'll stay sober. I'm an immigrant. I owe my country. I'm off to defend the Vietnamese from themselves. Who's more qualified to decide Southeast Asia's fate than a blue-eyed, blond-haired 19-year-old Irishman with a drinking problem? Besides defending my country, I'll see the world and get clean and sober. What are the chances Southeast Asia has drugs? U U This column will provide a hazy stumble down memory lane.

8, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MAY 17,2011 Lord's Healing Man struggles with illness By ASHLEY LOMBARDO Alligator Writer Jay Lord, 51, has been struggling with myelodysplastic syndrome for the last three years of his life. Also known as preleukemia, this disorder is the inability of the body to create blood cells. MDS causes Lord to be extremely anemic. To combat the anemia and keep him alive, his body requires weekly transfusions. However, a person can only withstand so many transfusions because of iron overload. The most effective way to fight this disease is stem cell surgery. But because of a weak liver caused by iron overload and excessive drinking when he was younger, Lord will be unable to withstand the procedure. Currently, he is undergoing a type of chemotherapy called arsenic trioxide. The treatment requires him to be in the hospital five days a week for two consecutive weeks. He has two weeks off between treatments but still must visit the hospital weekly if blood transfusions are needed. Ashley Lombardo/Alligator Top Left: A few vials of blood are taken each time Lord comes in for a transfusion to test his blood count. MDS leaves him extremely anemic. Top Right: Lord's open port is protected from infection and bacteria by a type of tape that helps keep out moisture. It is impossible to take a shower when the port is taped, so he has to sponge off in the sink. He says after a few days of that "you're jonesing for a shower." Center: People mistake Jay Lord's medical mask for him having some type of contagious disease. in fact, Lord's white blood cell count is often so low that he puts himself at risk by things as simple as eating raw fruits and vegetables. Bottom Right: Hospital visits have become so routine that he calls the nurses his "angels" and the hospital his "home away from home". Bottom Left: "It's a waiting game," Lord says. When he goes in for his weekly transfusions it is not uncommon to sit in the ward for a few hours while the blood is cleaned and readied to go.

Sports TUESDAY, MAY 17, 2011 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF TRACK AND FIELD Florida suffers frustrating finish at SEC Outdoors '"n "KI / "'1atf Gators track and field coach Mike Holloway said both Florida squads were not the best teams and failed to overcome adversity over the weekend at the 2011 SEC Outdoor Championships in Athens, Ga. Disregard the talking heads: I Five real issues facing Gators Spring football practice is over, so they tell me. And the Orange and Blue Debut came and went unspectacularly. That means you fans in the Gator Nation must wait until August to see or hear anything tangible related to the football team. (Remember, arrest reports don't count.) But that also means the lime for all-important prognostication is upon us. On cue, Urban Meyer, as part of his new gig as a college football analyst for ESPN, appeared recently on a College Football Live segment to break down the Gators football team and their expectations for the upcoming season. (The "experts" have Florida ranked No. 18 in their way-too-early, dead-wrong-by-fall preseason rankings.) If you happened to be away from the couch for this gem of television greatness, you missed some outstandingly awkward backand-forth from a panel featuring Kirk Herbstreit and Robert Smith, alongside Meyer and former Gators quarterback Jesse Palmer. It opened with Smith wondering how Will Muschamp would restructure the Florida football program after it sunk beneath the ever-lofty expectations in Meyer's last season. All while Meyer sat two chairs away. Awkward, as the kids say. Palmer stepped in and said Muschamp has already changed lots of things at Florida, including closing spring practice to the public. Much to the chagrin of Gators fans. Smiling ear-to-ear, wrinkles showing from years on Matt WattS the sidelines, Meyer TellingYou Watts Up quipped, "Glad I didn't mwatts@alligator org do that." The star-studded panel went on to discuss such important topics as entitlement issues, blue-collar mentalities, playing with 'fire,' team psychologists and whether Charlie Weis was a great hire or the greatest hire. But what does all that mean in terms of actual football? You don't need me to tell you. Absolutely squat. So let's take a look at five real issues facing the Gators this season: 1 -John Brantley. Is he the guy? In the last 30 seconds of the segment, Meyer said quarterbacks receive too much praise for winning, and too much blame for losing. While true, Brantley still must prove he's the caliber of quarterback necessary to win in the Southeastern Conference. Regardless of Meyer's public stance on Brantley, no one can deny the quarterback has the most direct effect on a team's success of any other position. If the Gators are going to be great, Brantley SEE WATTS, PAGE 16 By JOHN BOOTHE Alligator Writer With just five events left on the final day of the 2011 Southeastern Conference Outdoor Championships, the Gators were primed for a clean sweep. The No. 2 men's team held a 28-point lead over No. 11 Arkansas following Terrell Wilks' win in the 100-meter dash and earlier victories in the triple jump and 4x100-meter relay. Meanwhile, the unranked women's squad clung to a 96-95 advantage over top-ranked LSU. But instead of closing strong in Athens, Ga., both Florida teams inexplicably collapsed down the stretch to disappointing secondplace finishes. "I never thought we were in a bad place at any point in time over the weekend," UF coach Mike Holloway said. "The bottom line is we weren't the best team there this weekend. We had some adversity and we couldn't overcome it, they had some and they overcame it so kudos to Arkansas and coach [Chris] Bucknam." The Razorbacks reeled off two wins in the final five races to pull off a 45-point swing, taking the title by a final margin of 157.50 to 140. Holloway pointed to sprinter Jeff Demps' false start disqualification in the 100m preliminaries and an injury to distance runner Dumisane Hlaselo, as major potential points lost for the Gators. Both runners won events at the SEC Indoor Championships in February. "Not having Dumi in any event hurts us," Holloway said. "He's one of the elite runners in the country and not having him, Omar Craddock being hurt and Jeff false starting, there's a lot of things that came into play. But we're not going to SEE TRACK, PAGE 16 UF's Zunino powers way to SEC POY candidacy THE SOPHOMORE LEADS THE CONFERENCE IN R BIs, RUNS By JESSE SIMONTON Alligator Staff Writer jsimonton@aIligator org While craziness ensued this weekend during No. 6 Florida's dramatic series victory over No. 7 Vanderbilt, an unfailing presence emerged yet again to thrust the Gators back into the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division race. All year, Mike Zunino, the sophomore catcher and son of a Major League Baseball scout, has conducted Florida's accelerating train toward a conference championship and potential spot in the College World Series. On Sunday, the right-handed slugging backstop unloaded two bombs including the game-winning three-run home run in extra-innings as the Gators (39-13, 20-7 SEC) tied the Commodores (42-8, 20-7 SEC) for first place in the East. Zunino's shot not only broke the lengthy deadlock, but it likely cemented his candidacy as the leading contender for SEC Player of the Year. "There's no better guy you want up in that situation," coach Baseba l Kevin O'Sullivan said. "He's got presence in the box." Zunino had struggled in his brief career against Vanderbilt, batting just 1 for 19 before knocking a solo homer in the seventh inning Sunday.

TUESDAY, MAY 17, 2011 0 ALLIGATOR, 15 Lacroix rewrites record books 0 THE SENIOR BECAME UF'S ALL-TIME WINNINGEST PLAYER WITH TWO VICTORIES SUNDAY IN THE NCAA REGIONAL By THOMAS NASSIFF Alligator Writer Alexandre Lacroix is going to graduate this summer. After four years of studying at UF, Lacroix is about to earn his degree in business management at the conclusion of the summer term. But clearly, before his time at Florida ends, Lacroix wanted to do a little more writing. On Sunday, he rewrote Florida's record books. The Gators' senior leader, who coach Andy Jackson has praised throughout the season for being a role model both on the court and in the classroom, became UF's all-time winningest player after propelling Florida to a 4-0 win against rival Miami in the second round of the NCAA Tournament at Linder Stadium. With the win, the Gators captured an NCAA Regional to go along with the Southeastern Conference Tournament trophy they earned April 24. In the last match Lacroix will ever play in front of a home crowd, he earned his 209th and 210th career wins to move ahead of Justin O'Neal on Florida's career wins list. "I thought about it a little because I knew I was close to the record," Lacroix said. "It feels amazing in my last home match beating this record. I know there's been a lot of great players at Florida, and it feels great to get a couple of wins to finish it up." The senior captured the record with an 8-2 doubles victory with partner Sekou Bangoura Jr. Lacroix later defeated Keith Crowley in straight sets in singles. The usually reserved Lacroix looked up and acknowledged the roaring crowd -a small thankyou for their years of support. With Florida advancing to the Sweet 16, Lacroix isn't finished yet. The ultimate goal -a national championship -is still in his sights. "We feel like we've got a chance, but we've only got a chance because of Alex," Jackson said. "If anybody else gets injured or doesn't play well, we've got some other guys we can put in to sort of pick up the slack. But we're very dependent on Alex, and he's obviously been very dependable this year. We're excited about giving him a chance to lead us further when we get out to Palo Alto." Bryan Doolin /Alligator UF coach Andy Jackson said Lacroix is the ultimate leader, and the team is dependent on the senior. Freshmen key as Florida advances By THOMAS NASSIFF Alligator Writer Florida's women's tennis team compiled 25 wins, a Southeastern Conference regular-season championship and an SEC Tournament trophy before hosting an NCAA Regional last weekend. But an NCAA Regional was uncharted territory for half the team. Florida's normal singles lineup includes three players -Allie Will, Lauren Embree and Joanna Mather -who have vivid memories of last year's deep run to the NCAA Tournament final. But the other half of the lineup features three heralded freshmen who, despite having success all year, had never played in an NCAA Tournament. With the help of freshmen Olivia Janowicz, Sofie Oyen and Alex Cercone, the Gators dominated the first two rounds of the tournament at Linder Stadium over the weekend. On Sunday, Florida blanked South Carolina 4-0, clinching a berth in the Sweet 16 on Friday against Clemson. Coach Roland Thornqvist gave a simple answer when asked to evaluate the play of his freshmen in their first NCAA Regional. "Well, I guess you could say so far, so good," Thornqvist said. Mather said her job as the team's de facto leader hasn't proved to be difficult this year, saying the trio of rookies came in "determined and willing to work just as hard as anyone else has worked on this team." That driving focus was on display during regionals as Janowicz shined omen' with Mather Tennis in doubles, clinching the point for UF in both rounds. "They've gotten better. They've improved and matured. They can handle the momentum shifts better now than they could earlier in the season," Thornqvist said. "And they're going to need to if we're going to do anything in this event. We're not going to be able to reach our goals if our freshmen don't help us out." UF outlasts delays, Stanford in first NCAA Tournament game By JOHN BOOTHE Alligator Writer By the fourth rain delay of the Gators' first ever NCAA Tournament game, both Florida and Stanford had been sitting in the hallways of UF's lacrosse facility for five hours. Teammates from both sides mingled and talked, drifting in and out of their locker rooms. Others passed the time with a couple rounds of Travel Scrabble. As UF coach Amanda O'Leary said, it was not the ideal start to No. 4-seed Florida's 13-11 win over 13th-seeded Stanford (16-3, 6-0 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation). "I'm thinking, 'Oh, boy' this is our first one, these girls have never played in an NCAA Tournament game before," O'Leary said. "So I was a little concerned with how they would handle sitting in the locker room for four to five hours, but obviously, they came out ready to go and ready to play." From the opening draw, it was apparent which team had the fresher legs and the better conditioning leading up to the game. The Gators (16-3, 5-0 American Lacrosse Conference) owned the first three possessions in the half and sprinted out to a 4-0 lead on a five-minute hat trick from sophomore Kitty Cullen. Each goal came as a result from a quick strike in transition, where Florida exploited Stanford's inability to get back on defense. "I thought the speed was a factor, but once our team got it settled, I thought our defense did a relatively good job," Cardinal coach Amy Bokker said. Stanford clawed its way back into the game and only trailed 5-4 at halftime, but Florida again punished the visitors from the opening draw to start the second. Midfielder Janine Hillier, who tied a career-high with four goals, blasted a shot past Cardinal goalie Annie Read just 20 seconds into the period, while sophomore Brittany Dashiell (three goals, two assists) scooped up the resulting draw and fired another goal just 22 ticks later. "We still pulled through with our speed throughout the whole game," Dashiell said. "I think that showed because we scored a lot of goals through transition, and we really exploited their weaknesses and played them to our strengths." After Cullen's fourth goal brought the game to its final 13-11 margin, the Gators simply played keep-away from Stanford's defenders over the last 4:30, weaving through traffic and double teams. "Our young women are just so well conditioned," O'Leary said. "[UF Strength and Conditioning coach] Karen Werth does a fantastic job with them, so I knew that any one of them could run the ball around for any amount of time -and they have the heart to do it." With the win, Florida advances to play No. 5-seed Duke (14-4, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) next Saturday at 3 p.m. in Gainesville with an NCAA semifinal berth on the line. Max Reed/ Alligator Staff Florida sophomore Brittany Dashiell scored three goals and dished out two assists in the Gators' 13-11 win over the Cardinal in a weather-marred contest on Saturday.

16, ALLIGATOR 0 TUESDAY, MAY 17, 2011 Claye, Horn, Miller and LaCaze also capture individual SEC titles TRACK, from page 14 make excuses about that." On the women's side, the Tigers coasted past the Gators by 30 points -needing only a 200-meter dash victory -as Florida failed to place in the top-three for the rest of the tournament. Earlier in the day, Florida's men's squad positioned itself at the top of the leaderboard with two meet records. Junior Will Claye captured the triple jump with a leap of 17.24m/566.75 (+2.2), and the 4x100 relay team sprinted to a blazing time of 38.53 seconds. "I just went out there and did what we always do," Claye said. "I felt good this morning when I woke up, and I was just really pumped all day. It's just like practice out there.We're ready to go back home, get a bit of training in and we'll be ready for regionals and nationals." The women's lone victory of the day came from freshman Fawn Miller in the javelin. Her personalbest throw of Track 51.46m/168-10 sealed the fourth consecutive SEC title for Florida in the event. "We went into that meet knowing that we could do the things that we did this weekend," Holloway said. "Again, nobody on this coaching staff walked away saying, 'Wow, I can't believe we did that.' We WATTS, from page 14 must be as well. 2The pass rush. In 2009, the Gators ranked fifth in the country with 40 sacks. They accumulated 34 in each of the national championship seasons of 2006 and 2008. But Florida had just 21 a year ago, tied for 86th in the nation. Muschamp must get good production from highly-touted recruits Dominique Easley, Sharrif Floyd and Ronald Powell for the Gators pass rush to return to elite status. 3 -The secondary, minus Janoris Jenkins. Muschamp said recently he's happy with the guys remaining on the roster after Jenkins' dismissal. But how will they line up, and can they be effective? Senior Moses Jenkins, junior Jeremy Brown and sophomore Cody Riggs all figure to play prominent roles. But the Gators will also likely have to depend on production from freshmen like DeAnte Saunders, who Muschamp said has impressed thus far. 4 -Who will emerge at running back? The Gators situation at running back is muddled at best. Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey are still there to catch swing passes out of the backfield and run stretch plays off tackle, but who will get the pivotal 3rd-and1's? 5 -The schedule. The Gators play three teams Alabama, LSU and FSU -that are ranked in at least someone's preseason top 10, take it for what it's worth. Two of those teams (Alabama, FSU) must come to The Swamp. But the Gators also face a daunting threegame road trip with games at LSU, at Auburn and then against Georgia in Jacksonville. Florida hosts JU tonight, Fontana collects SEC Player of the Week Saj Guevara/ Alligator Gators catcher Mike Zunino drilled two homers in No. 6 UF's series-clinching win Sunday over No. 7 Vanderbilt. The sophomore is a front-runner for Southeastern Conference Player of the Year. BASEBALL, from page 14 son he's had five RBIs in a game. After middling with the bat as a freshman, Zunino has stormed to a monster sophomore campaign, despite the new aluminum. Although Zunino plays the most demanding position on the diamond, the catcher has started an astounding 50 of UF's 52 games. Zunino leads the team in nearly every statistical category, but his conference r sum6 is even more impressive. He is third in the SEC in batting average (.367) and doubles (18). The sophomore is second in the conference in homers (12), slugging percentage (.654) and total bases (123), while leading the league in runs scored (55) and RBIs (51).
