GRU proposes greener projects


PUBLIC SAFETY

Gasoline stations robbed


Police are investigating a string of
robberies that occurred at four local gas
stations during Winter Break.
Gainesville Police Detective Helen
Legall said two men, one with a black
handgun and the other acting as a look-
out, began their busy evening at 12:40
a.m. on Dec. 28 when they entered the
Sunoco gas station at 528 NW 8th Ave.
Legall said the men headed to the
Shell station at 6900 W Newberry Rd.
at 1:45 a.m. and the Kangaroo station at
3509 SW Williston Rd. at 2:45 a.m.
No more than 15 minutes later at an-
other Shell gas station at 3330 SW Archer
Rd., an attendant was sweeping outside
when he was approached by a man fit-
ting the description of one of the Sunoco
station robbers. The man ordered the
attendant inside and demanded money
from the cashier's drawer, Legall said.
Each time, an undisclosed amount of
cash was taken from the registers, but no
one was harmed, Legall said.
Though no arrests have been made,
both GPD and the Alachua County
.Sheriff's Office believe these robberies'
are related.
ASO spokesman Jim Troiano said
he also has been in contact with other
counties, specifically Gilcrest, about a
possible connection to robberies there.


Legall described both men as being
of average stature, approximately 150
pounds and wearing black leather jack-
ets. GPD-has video footage of one man
wearing a yellow hooded sweatshirt un-
derneath and the other carrying a black 9
mm or .45-caliber semi-automatic hand-
gun in his hand, she said.
And once upon a time...
Gainesville's own Cinderella decided
to rob a convenience store Monday, and
her night ended not with a kiss but a
high-speed chase.
According to police reports,
Kimberley Hutcherson, 27, entered the
Sprint Food Store, 2300 E University
Ave., armed and took an undisclosed
amount of money
However, in her haste to flee
Gainesville, Hutcherson reportedly
neglected her white tennis shoe. as she
slipped into her "carriage," a 2002 white
Suzuki 4-door sedan.
Officers followed the vehicle, which
was speeding at more than 100 mph, to
-the city limits on U.S. Highway 441, ac-
cording to reports.
GPD reported Hutcherson was ar-
rested and charged with armed robbery
that evening.

SFCC

SFCC satellite campus in Keystone Heights opens


By SKYLER SMITH
Alligator Writer
Classes commenced Wednesday
at the newly opened Watson Center
in Keystone Heights, SFCC's newest
satellite campus.
The new campus arose out of
desire for access, said Bob Wolfson,
director of the Watson Center.
"We want to provide educational
access for East Bradford County,"


he said.
-Wolfson said this campus would
complement the Andrews Center in
Starke so people in Bradford County
wouldn't have to make the commute
to Gainesville for their classes.
The Watson Center will offer col-
lege courses along with community
enrichment classes, such as painting
and computer training.
The campus also will host con-
tinuing-education classes so area

cational access for East

companies can hold specialized
business and industry classes for
their employees.
"Right now, Santa Fe outreaches


wherever we're needed," Wolfson
said.
The Keystone Heights location.
joins the SFCC net of campuses that
include three in Gainesville, one in
Starke and another in Archer.
Although all campuses are bpen
to SFCC students, not all students
were aware of the newest addition.
"Keystone is far away. I didn't
even know about it," said Dave
Fried, an SFCC journalism student


at the main Gainesville campus.
There are plans for the Watson
Center to expand.
Construction will begin this
spring on a full science lab.
There is also an official grand-
opening ceremony to be held in
March for the Watson Center.
Though today marked the first
day classes were held at the new
campus, there was no ceremony
held, Wolfson said.


Student Senate seeks applicants for three open seats


* THE POSITIONS OPENED AFTER THREE SENA-
TORS WERE REMOVED FROM OFFICE.

By BRIDGET CAREY
Alligator Writer
bcarey@alligator.org
Three students could have.the power to influence nearly $11
million in Activity & Service Fees through Student Senate seats
left vacant after three senators were removed from office.
Because the three legislators holding those positions did not
fulfill Senate attendance requirements, they were removed to
make room for other students with a hankering to get involved


with Student Government.
"There's a lot of people who like to be in Senate, so we take
it very seriously," said Senate Pro-Tempore Diane Kassim.
Senators are required to attend meetings every Tuesday at
7:30 p.m. and only are allotted four absences. Senators can ap-
peal their removal by justifying the absence, Kassim said.
"For the most part we do allow excused absences," Kassim
said, adding, "This is like any other organization when you
have fluctuation in attendance"
During Kassim's time with Senate, she said it's not unusual
for a few senators to resign due to a change in their schedules,
unexpected class requirements or end-of-term apathy.
One seat each is open for students studying in the colleges
of liberal arts and sciences, education or the veterinary profes-

sional school. Applications for the seats are due to the SG of-
fices on the third floor of the Reitz Union no later than Friday
at 4:30 p.m.
"It's not necessarily how thick your resume is, it's how ea-
ger you are to get involved," said Kassim.
The interview and appointment process is coordinated by
Kassim and the Rules & Ethics Committee.

GREEK LIFE

IFC holds forum, explains Spring Rush process


By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer

UF students looking to join a fraternity will
have the opportunity to do so beginning this
weekend.
The Interfraternity Council will hold its
Spring Rush forum, which signals the begin-
ning of Rush Week, Sunday at 7 p.m. in the
Reitz Union Auditorium.
The forum is an informational meeting at
which students interested in Greek life can ask
questions and meet representatives from the
22 organizations that make up the IFC.
Membership Vice President Chris
Bucciarelli said that although attendance at the
forum isn't required for rushing, he strongly
recommends it.
"We explain how the whole process of how
rush works," Bucciarelli said. "We give hints
Sand suggestions."


He said one IFC suggestions is that frater-
nity hopefuls visit several houses to get a bet-
ter idea of which fraternities fit them best.
Rush Week officiall- begins Sunday at 8
p.m., directly after the forum.
Throughout the week, each IFC house will
host three daily functions including lunch,
dinner and evening events.
Bucciarelli said the functions are informal,
but the IFC encourages students to dress
nicely
"We want people to dress how they usually
do, but it's good if they can dress nice, too,"
he said.
Students rushing may decide which houses
they want to visit. Throughout the week, they
can be offered bids from an\ fraternity\ inter-
ested in taking them in aS a pledge.
IFC Administrative Vice President Jeremy
Martin said even though there are negative
stereotypes surrounding fraternities, there re-


ally is a house out there for everyone.
"Joining a fraternity gives you a good
group of core friends," Martin said. "It opens

Bucciarelli agreed with Martin, noting older

Martin also said Lnteres.ted snrudenrts should

formation about all 22 IFC fraternities as well
as the IFC rush application, whichis due to the
council at the beginning of Rush Week.


Buciarelli said Spring Rush tends to be less
stressful for students because the turnout typi-
cally is half that of Fall Rush.
Matt McGurrin, 20, a member of Alpha Tau
Omega, rushed last Spring.
The sophomore said he waited to rush to
get a feel for the different fraternities and learn
more about Greek life on campus.
"I also waited because my family wanted
to make sure I could handle schoolwork and
make good enough grades before I decided to
join a fraternity," McGurrin said.
. He said he enjoyed rushing with a smaller
group of students.
"It made it easier because you had more
interaction time with all the guys," he said.
The other three Greek councils -
Panhellenic, Multicultural Greek and National
Panhellenic do not host a formal Spring
Rush but can be contacted for information
.about joining.


Study: Men's, women's opinions vary on sexual terms


* THE STUDY FOUND COLLEGE-AGED WOMEN
REACT FAVORABLY TO THE TERM "ORGASM."

By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
A UT studN ha. confirmed \iha t -ouipe.;'Tlitii a -iTwir--
for centuries men and % omen do not see eye to e\ e. The
study noted men and women view sexual terms, ranging
from "orgasm" to "rape," differently.
"We wanted to compare and contrast the meaning of
sexual terms over time as well as new words," said Virginia
Noland, a professor in the health science education depart-
ment and the leader in the study.
"Examining the evolution of sexual language is impor-
tant in the 21st century as communication becomes more
important," she said.
Noland's team of researchers asked about 570 under-
graduates at a large Midwestern university to rate their ini-


tial feelings toward 42 sexual terms. The study found men
saw "feminist," "gay," "heterosexual" and "sexual assault"
in a more positive light.
On the other side of the coin; women rated "breast, en-
largement," "erection," "Internet sei," "oral sex," "pornog-
raphy" and transgenderr" more positively.
--.- ... -._ Noland and her team compared the re-
UF suirm UIeri rI t,-a~ ml::ti-.c-a- o ,n
Research the Midwest m 1989 by USF and Southern
Illinois University. Noland said a new study
was needed because of the introduction of
the Internet and the increasing popularity of cable televi-
sion.
Views on the term "orgasm" changed during a 15-year
period. The study found there is increasing favorability
among college-aged women regarding the term.
"I think this signals a shift in 'orgasm' becoming some-
thing that is acceptable for both men and women," Noland
said. "[It is] something women shouldn't be ashamed of


talking about or achieving. There's a growing realization
that women are sexual creatures, too."
Noland said the term "orgasm" has appeared more fre-
quently in women's magazines during the past few years.
A few trends warranted concern for Noland. "Breast
enlargement" made its first appearance in the study, and the
female impression of the word was more favorable than in
.men.- The favorable rating women give to brea-t enlarge-
ment could signal accCptaince of unrtealisnc body inidigt 'V-
pectations and surgical techniques to try and achieve them,"
she said. Noland says health education professionals need to
pay attention to this trend.
Noland expressed a sense of unease about the fact men
rated the term "HIV/AIDS" only slightly on the negative
side. She said this may be due to the notion men often view
the disease as a problem strictly for homosexuals.
Noland added many students come to college "very
inadequately prepared" to deal with sex and sexually trans-
mitted diseases.

Music mishap

Rapper good for UF, not

for Black History Month
If you're nostalgic for the good old days of Billyburg
- camping out for days to get ticketsfor a Gators basketball
game you might want to get a head start before tickets for
the Snoop Dogg concert go on sale Friday. They'll go fast.
Without a doubt, Snoop Dogg's performance Feb. 4 is one
of the most anticipated events in recent memory.
Unfortunately, the performance also will be associated
with another major event one whose values do not mix
well with Snoop's music.
Snoop is a great choice to perform at UF He has an almost
mind-boggling popularity among even the most disparate of
students khaki-clad preppies, dreadlocked hippies, bling-
blingers and, probably, those in charge of putting talent to-
gether for Black History Month.
In fact, it's hard to find any party, club or dorm room in
Gainesville that doesn't occasionally indulge in a little "Gin
and Juice."
But while the cross-cultural nature of Snoop's popularity
makes him an ideal entertainer for the community, he is not
the best choice to be the marquee performer of Black History
Month activities.
The messages in-Snoop's music, as well:as those espoused
in his extracurricular activities, are not the sort Black History
Month should be associated with.
Sure, those messages are meant in fun and aren't really to
be taken seriously.
Snoop-?- 7I\-T-rrnce romp :'oul Flane" was evidence
enough of that.
But that doesn't change the fact they are not in the spirit of
Black History Month.
And though none of the festivities openly will be de-
scribed as the most important, we can guess which one will
get the most publicity.
We certainly know which one will cost students the most
money.
The more than $100,000 allotted to bring Snoop and his
entourage to the O'Dome could have been used to pay for a
more socially-conscious artist or group, such as Lauryn Hill,
Talib Kweli or The Roots.
For $100,000, we probably could have had all three.
We only have to go as far back as the 2004 celebrations'
top act, Chuck D, to find a popular entertainer who has been
active in the advancement of black community and of civil
rights in general.
The other figures whom the organizers have selected this
year are much more appropriate to the celebrations.
Afeni Shakur, for instance, is a perfect example of a civil-
rights figure who still is famous enough to draw a crowd.
Shakur, in addition to being the mother of rapper Tupac
Shakur, is a respected poet and activist known for her work
with the Black Panthers.
Jasmine Guy, "A Different World" actress and Afeni
Shakur biographer, is similarly noteworthy for her combina-
tion of fame and positive contributions to black heritage.
Had Snoop been brought to UF for a stand-alone concert,
his appearance would have been universally praised as an
event guaranteed to appeal to a wide spectrum of students.
Instead, his performance which still undoubtedly will
be one of the highlights of the year for UF will be tainted by
thoughts that a more appropriate talent for celebrating black
history could have been purchased with student funds.

Debates abound or
Repent! All we sinners are doomed to hell!
Or so says the Turlington Preacher.
Not to be confused with Turlington Jesus (the
long-haired, robe-wearing apostle who kindly informed
me I was damned to eternal hellfire four times over), the
Turlington Preacher wears a suit and tie and could be
mistaken for a professor were he not screaming about
Judgment Day at the top of his lungs. He holds court
on the middle of Turlington Plaza, as he did yesterday,
declaring most unwitting passersby to be on the path to
hell. Among the condemned are "perverts, feminists,
masturbators, dope fiends, pornographers, drunks, sod-
omites, abortionists and rock-and-rollers."
SPretty much everyone goes about their business, albe-
it somewhat bemused, and ignores what he has to say.
Who really intrigues me, though, are the people who
try to debate him. There is almost always a budding
philosopher present who gets very upset when told all
masturbators are going to hell. I believe the Turlington
Preacher's words were, "Men who masturbate are lack-
ing. in self-control" and "unmanly." Anyway, I love it
when some fiery young Plato tries to reason with our
campus savior. One student was so flustered yesterday
he exchanged phone numbers with one of the preacher's
disciples so they could duke it out later.
What I don't get is what any of these people are
hoping to accomplish. The Preacher himself, and the
Turlington Jesus, too do they.really believe they are
going to impact the minds of the UF student body? I'm
pretty sure no one says to themselves, "You know what,
I think I will accept Jesus Christ as my savior. Right after
I grab some Chick-Fil-A." The students who try to have
intelligent discourse with the Preacher do they think

Andrew Meyer he is going to hear their reasoning
Speaking Out and think, "My God, what have I
been doing with my life?"
The entire situation is one of
the funniest scenes I've ever witnessed.
What really surprises me about it is how much the
preacher likes to talk about sex.
Listening to this guy ramble on is just so rewarding
when he produces a gem such as, "There are hussies out
there looking for it." This was his reasoning for men not
needing to masturbate, but sex in general is one of the
preacher's favorite subjects. Half of the categories on his
sign are devoted to it.
SThe Turlington Preacher did stop berating perverts
long enough to speak out against feminists. When
asked what exactly is wrong with feminists, he said,
"They have radical ideas, like wanting to be paid equal
wages."
Now that's the kind of progressive thinking I like to
see.
I often wonder what draws this type of people to our
campus, and I think I've figured it out. UF students, and
perhaps college students in general, love to debate and,
when presented with a chance to have an ideological ar-
gument, even with someone like the Preacher, we jump
at the opportunity. Let's face the truth approaching a
possibly homeless man equipped with a 10-foot sign as-
serting our eventual damnation holds an undeniable ap-
peal. Until we can learn to ignore the crazies, the campus
will be inundated with them.
You all can continue on your way, but I for one plan to
sit back and enjoy the show.

Letter to the i-L t-
Bush administration's emphasis on tort reform
hides healthcare problems
Editor: Once again, the Bush administration and
the GOP are attempting to distract Americans from
the real issues.
Bush and his cronies are touting tort reform lim-
iting how much money wronged patients can recov-
er from negligent doctors. But a 2004 Congressional
Budget Office report found that malpractice costs
accounted for only 2 percent of overall healthcare
spending.
Republicans are not allowing the families of the
approximately 100,000 Americans who die each
year from malpractice to get adequate compensa-
tion for their loved ones' preventable deaths.
Put simply, patients who are negligently injured
by those few inept doctors deserve just compensa-
tion.
Meanwhile, Republicans and the president are-
veering away from the skyrocketing prescription
drug costs, the 43 million Americans without health
insurance and the fact that America is the only in-
dustrialized democracy in the world that does not
provide healthcare to all of its citizens.

Ron Jeremy is coming.
In another attempt to lure the student
masses with controversial fare, UF's speakers
bureau is bringing the well-known porn star
to debate with an anti-pornography activ-
ist on Jan. 26 in the Stephen C. O'Connell
Center.
"Let's face it, sex sells," Accent Chairman
David Buchalter said. "Every college student
knows about it, and it's an interesting sub-


ject."
Because the bureau books speakers from
diverse backgrounds, it doesn't view the
choice of Jeremy, who has starred in more
than 1,000 pornographic films, as more radi-
cal than previous Accent speakers, Buchalter
said.
"We book people from the very far left in
politics to the very far right," Buchalter said.
"I don't think he's any more extreme than
any of our other speakers."
He declined to comment on the cost of
the debate, referring all related questions to
Student Government finance officials, who

"The porn industry has certainly garnered
a lot of flak, but at the same time it's become
a large industry," Buchalter said, noting both
Cole and Jeremy are well-regarded in their
respective fields. "It's an excellent way to get
out both sides and get a discussion going."

making a lot of restrictions these days, it's
worthy of discussion," she said. "It's great
that you can get both sides to debate on the
right to make and view pornography."
And though some may view freedom of
speech solely in terms of verbal communi-
cation, Velez notes there are many types of
expression.
"Communication comes in all forms, es-
pecially when it comes to something that's
sexually explicit," she said. "Pornography is
verbal and visual, so it definitely falls under
freedom of speech."


Sophomore linebacker leaves UF Thursday


Linebacker Channing Crowder, who flirted with success and
trouble at UF, will now look to bring his talent to the NFL.


CROWDER, from page 1

him eligible for this \ ear's draft.
Crowder said the decision to
leave was tough, but after talking it
over with his mother and coaches,
he decided if was the best move.
"I started to look at things -
- leaving, going, thinking about
how great it w would be next year,"
Crowder said. I met with Coach
Meyer a bunch of times. The Gators
are going to be a great team and
have some of the great athletes in
the nation, so itwas a lot tougher
than I thought it u would be But I
made the decision that I thought
was best for me and my family "
Crowder will leave for his home-
town of Atlanta on Thursday and
begin searching for an agent. Soon
after, he will begin a rigorous train-
ing schedule.
"Everyone's calling my cell
phone saying, 'you must be excited',
but the funny thing is in four or five
days I'm going to be in boot camp,"
Crowder said. "Right now I'm just
trying to work. I know I have to
work to make it."
While some experts have called


"I met with Coach [Meyer] a
bunch of times. The Gators
are going to be a great team
and have some of the great
athletes in the nation, so
it was a lot tougher than I
thought it would be. But I
made the decision that I
thought was best for me and
my family."
Channing Crowder
former UF linebacker

Crowder the best linebacker pros-
pect in the nation, he still has a feiv
issues to iron out.
First, he must prove that he is at
full speed. Crowder has suffered
several injuries, including ones to
his knee and back, dating back to
high school.
"I have enough game film so
they see I can play football and be a
successful linebacker," he said. "You
just go out, run around at the com-
bine, have some personal workouts
and let them see that I'm healthy
and that I can play football."
But Crowder also must prove


that he is not a headcase. He was
suspended for one game both his
freshman and sophomore seasons
for late-night incidents around the
Palace nightclub.
"I'll have the police report there
with me [at the combine], let them
know what happened, what went
on and see who was involved. I
was younger then. I haven't been in
trouble in awhile, and it's nothing
that's too big of a deal."
Crowder's only regret from his
two years at UF was the lack of team
success. The Gators finished with
five losses in each of Crowder's
seasons at UF.
"My first game was losing to
Miami and my last game was los-
ing to Miami, so it wasn't the best
start ard finish," Crowder said.
"But we've had a lot of big wins,
I've made a lot of big plays that I'm
happy with. We beat some teams we
weren't supposed to beat and we
lost to teams we should have beat
but that's part of football."
If everything does go according to
plan, Crowder already knows who
will reap the immediate benefits.
"[Mom's] going to be taken care
of well," he said.. "Hopefully she
won't have to work anymore."

New expert aims to please, soothe students' dirty inquiring minds


judging by the lucky few (ok, more like
a handful) who've been under my cov-
ers, people in this town need some seri-
us guidance.
Yes, even you.
So before you declare your bedroom
,skills prodigious and sentence this peri-
odical to the nearest recycling bin, take a
peek.
When I first came to college, I thought.
my future spouse and I would meet in a
gen-ed class. He'd spot me from across the
.room, ask if he could borrow my notes and
take me out to dinner. By senior year, I'd


have a Harry Winston the size of a Ring
Pop.
I also was under the impression that
all-right-long sack sessions were-the norm
in college. (No more steamy windows in
mom's minivan on a school night.)
We get into college and actually are
given our own pleasure dens complete
with tantalizing Animal House posters
and black lights. Obviously with those ac-
commodations we'd all be experts by the
end of freshman year.
Almost four years later, I realize I. was
wrong. Terribly wrong.

Growing up, I was the kid who
liked art. I imagined my artistic tal-
ents would lead me to a wonderful
career. However, as I got older and
more cynical, I realized. I would
most likely end up a starving artist.
Looking for a more practical career, I joined my high
school's newspaper. During the two years Lworked as
design editor and editor-in-chief, I wrote about every-
thing from news to sports.
Covering the Hippodrome will bring me back to one
of the subjects I most enjoyed writing about. One of my
good friends in high school was what I affectionately
called a "drama dork." I helped him memorize lines and
make props and sometimes covered school productions
and went.to drama competitions with the the.pians.
Now, as a sophomore journalism major minoring in
art history, I'm looking forward to exploring this aspect
of Gainesville's entertainment scene.

A fortune cookie gave me some
S great advice: "Di;epii a 'n .t from the
path which fate has you assigned."
Now I always trust my instincts
regarding everything I love. I have
loved theater since my first role as
a gorilla in my kindergarten play. However, sticking
with the advice of my trusty cookie, I had to trust my
instincts and go a different direction.
Playing "Prostitute #4" in all musicals under the sun
wasn't going to jumpstart my career. I was good but
not good enough. I was a slice but not the whole pie.
So I pursued my other love, writing. I hope to grad-
uate in journalism and a minor in general theater the
best of bothworlds for a thespian turned journalist.
I'm here to urge you boozers to put down that han-
dle and let the theater entertain you. I think you'll be
surprised. I'll present you with some great local.theater.

I'm one of the music writers,
which rules because I love music.
Lucky for me, Gainesville's scene
gives me a lot to cover. I live for
good shows, so I'll be sure to in-
form you of events you can't miss.
Music always has been part of my life. I was 6 at my
first concert, although I'hate to say it was New Kids
on the Block. What do you expect from a girl who at-
tended Catholic school in Tokyo until she was 12?
In my defense, I still have Green Day's "Dookie."
-Now that I'm a second-year student, I have a more
eclectic CD collection, which if you're into labeling
- ranges from punk to indie and from pop to emo.
Nothing makes me happier than when someone
says, "That band you recommended is amazing." I'm
hoping someone will tell me that this semester.
Let me prove there's more to Gainesville than drink-
ing and football or a least something just as good.

J.Page to serve up punk fun at Common Grounds


BY NATHANIEL DEAS
Avenue writer

J. Page serves tables at a local restaurant.
He also lends his name to an up-and-
coming punk band playing at Common
Grounds on Jan. 11.
"I thought it would be funny to name our
band after my good friend and infamous
town asshole, J. Page," singer and guitar
player Mike Magarelli said. "J. is currently
a waiter at the Bistro 1245, and I'd like to en-
courage everyone who reads this to go there
and bother him about having a band named
after him. He really likes that."
Described as pop punk rock, J. Page has
been together for about eight months. After
stints with several other bands, the mem-
bers of J. Page finalized their lineup and
I


went on tour, playing 18 shows in 17.days
in November.
"We were having such a great time on
tour," Magarelli said, "towards the end of
the trip we started talking about booking an-
other longer one as soon as we get home."
The band also has recorded a five-song
EP that has yet to be named.
"We are talking with several labels about
releasing it," Magarelli said. "But until then
if you're really nice to us we'll prob-
ably just give you a copy."
J. Page will be joined at the Common
Grounds by Alli With An I and Break the
Silence.
Described as a melodic blend of metal,
punk. and hardcore, Break the Silence re-
sides in Chicago and is touring throughout
the country.
Guitarist and backing vocalist Dan
^*^e^* ~--* gd;:?1 _-~' :w7--.- a."^**^* tq^

Precision said the band enjoys playing in
front of a crowd.
"Our shows are very energetic and at
times violent," Precision said. "The best
part about making music, in my opinion, is
being able to take that music and perform
it on the road. Being able to play live every
day in front of a new group of people and
share that live feeling with an audience is an
experience like no other."
While searching for a new bassist, Break
the Silence has enlisted the help of Bob
Skwerski, formerly of the Bollweevils.
"Bob is an amazing bassist, and we are
happy that he is helping us out on this tour,"
Precision said. "We'll be having auditions
starting at the end of.January, and hopefully
we'll have a permanent bassist soon after."
Break the Silence's full-length album,
Near Life E perience, will be available at


the show.
Hailing from Raleigh, N.C., Alli With An
I is touring throughout the South, Southwest
and Midwest. Previous tours found the band
playing in legendary venues such as CBGB's
and the Velvet Lounge.
They also released a full-length album,
I Learned It By Watching You, which was
co-produced by Brian Paulson, who has
worked with musicians such as Wilco, Uncle
Tupelo and Beck.
Doors open at 9 p.m., and cover will be
$5.
All three bands are fast and energetic, so
punk enthusiasts should look forward to a
fun environment.
If you don't care for the .punk scene,
however, Magarelli offers another reason to
check out the show.
"Because we're hot, sexy dude..."

Piano festival draws international crowd, acclaim


By ALICIA PEREZ
Avenue writer

When you are upset, sad or happy, mu-
sic setN a perfect atmosphere to match your.
mood. For some, it is a way to release stress,
and it creates an escape from a person's hec-
ticlife. And when the music is rare and hard
to come by, the reward of experiencing it is
beyond comprehension.
UF will be hosting the Fourth Annual


Steinway Piano Festival from Jan. 6 to 11.
This six-day event is free and open to the
public.
SThere will be several events, consisting-
of classes and recitals at the Keene Center in.
Daur Hall and University Auditorium. Also,
the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts
will host a recital on Jan. 8.
"This year is an especially unusual festi-
val for the school of music," UF piano pro-
fessor Boaz Sharon said. "We have invited

the top people in the field of piano to create
a festival that will be like no other."
Among the guests invited are Jerome
Lowenthal, head of piano at The Julliard
School, Lazar Breman, an international
recording artist considered to be one the
greatest pianists of his time, and Philippe
Entremont, a :orld-famous pianist -from

students majoring in piano per-
formance will participate alongside about 20
high-level piano students from Italy, Spain,
Russia, Japan, Korea, Israel, Canada and
Norway.
-. "This is probably the only high-level
international festival of its kind hosted by
a major university," Sharon said. "There,
will be six days of public recitals and public
master classes."
Master classes provide the audience
with a unique look into how these eminent
pianists, including Sharon, work aid teach
other students by hearing them play and
giving feedback in front of:the audience.
International studies has become a top
priority for univ'ersities, aind UF's College of
Fine Arts, School of Music along with The
Foundation Bell'Arte and the Ecole No r nlmle
de MuLsiqte de Paris "Alfred Cortot" are the
only schools that can create a program that
provides participants with the benefits of
artistic-coaching-as well as career guidance,

graduate student, said.
"It is a rare opportunity to have famous
pianists come to our school," Wang, who
has organized this year's festival for the first
time,' explained. "Most people pay a lot of
money for a .ticket to see these people, and
with this festival, anyone can hear these pia-
S nists and watch them
unusual work."

students who play is the greatest reward,
Wang said.
Music majors will not be the only ones
who benefit from this festival, Wang said.
She said she feels it gives people a chance
to listen to some of the greatest pianists from
all over the world, including some of our
very own at UF.
The festival is split into different times of
the day to accommodate anyone wanting to
see great minds at work, Boaz said.
"It is the unique opportunity, to hear
fabulous pianists from around the world,"
Sharon said.
"And I think everyone should come and
experience it themselves."

Junior in unfamiliar position with injury

for the team's Southeastern
Conference opener against
Arkansas on Saturday, but possi-
bly for more than half its league
schedule.
And while all his teammates
know the adversity they face
without Walsh, he says his spec-
tator status tortures him most.
"I got a good taste of it
Sunday against Florida State,"
Walsh said: 'Hopetully we'll
be winning some games, and I
won't have to feel like that again
I'm just disappointed I can't be
out there helping them right
now I hate s.eeng my team los-
ing out there and not being able
to contribute."
It's a feeling with which
Walsh isn't very familiar. In ad-
dition to starting every game of
his UF career, he never missed
a game in high school .due to
injury.
S"I missed one game in high
school because I got two techni-
cals the game before," said Walsh
with a grin. "That's it."
That because he's no strang-
er to playing injured. His coach
at GermantowTn Academy, Jim
Fenerty, said Walsh did so his
entire senior season.
Fenerty said that -in the
Patriots' season opener against


St. Vincent-St. Mary High and
its star forward LeBron James,
Walsh was undercut while at-
tempting a layup and landed
directly on his knee.
Despite swelling, he played
the rest of the game, finishing
with 25 points.
And disregarding a deep
bone bruise and doctor recom-
mendations that he sit out for
two to three weeks, Fenerty said
Walsh used pre- and post-game
icings to quell the swelling in
order to play the remainder
of -his 2002
Philadelphia
Inquirer
-Player of the
Year season.
H e
pla y.ed
through a lot,
Lee of pain his
senior year,"
Fenerty said. "And really wasn't
healthy until a month after the
season was over. So he's a tough
kid."
This time, however, Walsh's
bum ankle may. override his
competitive spirit, as he walks
with a brace and can't run. And
the lanky guard with a team-in-
spiring and Donovan-impress-
ing disregard for his body said
he won't jeopardize his health
with a-premature comeback.
"I want to be out there help-
ing the team and trying to'get


back on track and have a good
SEC [season]," Walsh said. "I'm
down, but I'm realistic. I know
I'm hurt, and I've just got to get
back as soon as I can."
But for the Gators, that may-
not be soon enough For an S-3
UF team coming otf a loss to the.

1997 and to both FSU and Miami
for the first time since 1964, the

victory against South Florida.
According to Peck, Arkansas
plays a similar style to UF and
uses the full-court press, which the
Gators had some problems with
against USE Peck, though, is an-
ticipating a more cerebral game.
"I think it's going to be a very
balanced game. Both: teams have
similar strengths." she said. "It's
going to be like a chess match on
Thursday."
But even if UF defeats Arkansas,
it still has many things to improve.
SDespite plenty of energy on the
defensive end and the ability to
force timely turnovers. UF allows
too many open looks. UF is last
in the SEC in scoring defense and
field-goal percentage allowed.
SBut that statistic may also be a
product of UF's schedule. In their
four losses, the Gators have al-.


GIRV BALLS, from page 24

Ole Miss to be an also-ran in the confer-
ence. They allow only 60 points a game
and a measly 27.5 rebounds a game.
Alabama is a threat too. Like UP, they can
score. But the Gators have lost Walsh, so
the Tide will probably surpass them in
that stat. Then there's Kentucky. They


lowed an average of 76 points per
game against 55 points in the wins.
The losses came against Florida
State, Iowa, Baylor and Richmond,
who are a combined 46-2.
The Gators' leading scorers,
Mosby and Williams, will be key if
UF wants to be successful.
Mosby began this season as a
forward who could step out and
hit the three. Now she's the go-to
player in the paint.
"Right now I think I'm finding
more opportunities inside," said
Mosby, who is averaging 15 points
and eight rebounds. "I just think
it's been the way the game has
been played, and what open shots
are there for me."
For now, LUF will pla with
10 players because of the loss of
Danielle Santos. But when Santo-
returns, she may be coming back

eryone.
Everyone except themselves.


may not score a lot, but you can't beat the
56.5 points per game they allow. They are
stingy on defense and UF is not. End
of story.
These four teams have the qualities
to go on and even make some noise in
the NCAA Tournament. UF, on the other
hand, must resolve its issues. Otherwise,
it's another early exit and more scrutiny
on Billy D.

MEN'S BASKETBALL

Walsh expected


out 4-6 weeks


By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer

During the pregame shoot-
around, junior Matt Walsh,
clad in a Gator-blue jump
suit, not the black jerseys of
his teammates, and leaned.
against a hoop at one end of the
Tallabhai.e-Leon County Civic
Center. With a black removable
walking caston his left leg and
a melancholy look on his face,
he slowly fed balls back to his
fellow Gators as they prepared
for the afternoon's game against
Florida State.
Perhaps Walsh. had an in-'
kling of the 13-point trouncing
his team would incur in his
abitcnce Or maybe the guy
who braved UF's last short-
lived postseason with a silicone
sheath on his foot instead of a
chunk of flesh wasn't prepared,
to miss his first collegiate game
in more than two years.
If there was one thing Walsh
didn't expect, however, it was
.that- he'd be missing much
more.
When his left foot came
down on soph.n.mre guard Lee-

that Walsh has a syndesmotic

Gators poised to surprise SEC again


By MICHAEL MAURINO
Alligator Writer

They sit quietly, unnoticed and sur-
rounded by heavyweights. Overlooked by
everyone, they sit and wait for their chance
to prove everyone wrong again.
That seems to be an accurate description
of this season's UF women's basketball team
as it starts its Southeastern Conference play
at Arkansas tonight. Playing in a stacked con-
ference with some of the nation's elite pro-
grams such as Georgia, LSU and Tennessee,
the Gators are an afterthought.
But, behind the play of All-American cen-
ter Vanessa Hayden, UF stunned everyone
by finishing 19-11 last season after a disas-
trous 9-19 mark in 2002-03. The Gators were
8-6 in SEC play and ended the season in the
second round of the NCAA Tournament.
But, with Hayden graduated, UF (9-4) is
back o predictions of mediocrity and not


having the talent to challenge the top teams.
Yet, the Gators like it this way..
"We like to be the underdogs, we like
people to sleep on us and think that we're
not ready to play," said senior guard Tamia
Williams. "I also think a lot of people' are go-
ing to underestimate us
this year without Vanessa
in the middle, and I think
a lot of people didn't ex-
pect us to win as many
games as we did in the
preseason."
If the Gators are to sur-
williams prise people like last year,
they will do it with a more
complete team.
Last season's offense revolved around
Hayden. She took 450 shots, almost a fifth
of the team's total. Coach Carolyn Peck says
this year's team is quicker, more guard ori-
ented and dependent on all 11 players doing


their part.
"We've had players contribute in a lot of
different ways," Peck said. "It may not be
with points scored, it may be with defensive
stops, it may be executing our offense, it may
be big rebounds... Our players have roles,
and they've taken pride in their roles. And
the rest of the team understands that and
tries to play to the strengths of each other."
With this'style of play, the Gators can be
difficult to guard as they no longer rely on
one player to score.
"Everybody has a balanced scoring night.
It's not only one person scoring, but it's the
whole team," junior forward Bemice Mosby
said. "I guess you can say we've found a
whole new way to win."
Heading into conference play, Peck says
the Gators have momentum following two
wins in the State Farm Classic and Sunday's

UF's SEC season


appears bleak

W ith the college football season of-
ficially complete (although all of us
would like to see USC and Auburn
duke it out for the championship), it's on to col-
lege basketball and ultimately a better playoff
season.
While it would be easy to go into a football
vs. basketball postseason tirade, the focus here
will instead be on the upcoming Southeastern
Conference season.
From all accounts, this appears to be some-
what of a down year for the SEC. How so? Not
a single SEC team is in the top seven of either
poll and only three teams are in the top 25 after
the nonconference season. The ACC has three
teams in the top five and between five and six
in the top 25, depending on the poll.
Considering that, UF has a chance to break
through in the conference. But judging by Billy
Donovan's comments at the Monday media
luncheon, the Gators are far away from suc-
cessfully navigating the
SEC slat.l
"'From this point for-
ward we're not going to
play any teams that we
look at and say, 'we're
more talented-- if we
GreggGirvan play hard and play
ThroWing Girv Balls well, we'll win,'" said
SiiDonovan.
It come- at no sur-
prise that .Kentucky is
leading the SEC sweepstakes. The Wildcats
made it through their schedule mostly un-
scathed, and are also riding on their prestige.
Teams from the SEC West like Arkansas,
Mississippi State and Alabama, however, could
crash the party come March. And it seems
likely to me that any of those three teams has a
better chance of winning the SEC than UF.
What is the advantage these teams have
against the Gators? Surprise, surprise, it's
physicality on defense.
Even after Matt Walsh returns in four to six
weeks from his ankle injury, he won't be at full
strength as UF heads into postseason play. And
he cannot fix everything for the Gators even
when healthy. Any team they face like Florida
State that can limit David Lee to two rebounds
will defeat UE
And so, who in the SEC has the qualities to
make an impact in the real tournament?
How about UF's opponent on Saturday, 13
-1 Arkansas? The Razorbacks have already sur-
passed their win total from last year, and the
best players on the team are young and can be
even better: They may not score as much as the
Gators, but they give up less points per game.
And they took care of business outside the
conference better than ever before. Then there
is Arkansas' opponent last night, Mississippi.
The Rebels are pretty good and Coach Rod
Barnes has silenced the critics that expected
