UF to extend campus in hopes of reviving east side
* THE PROJECT IS PROGRESSING
WITH THE AID AND SUPPORT OF
By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
Reaching out to an area Gainesville's
mayor called "left behind," UF is develop-
ing an eastsidee campus" to house admin-
istrative offices and research facilities.
UF is renovating a building on Waldo
Road and Northeast 23rd Avenue and has
plans to develop the entire 12-acre site,
Which UF and city officials. hope will bring
new life to a struggling part of town.
The UF Bridges project, which over-
sees UF's Web-based financial system,
will move to the site in early summer,
bringing 150 to 200 jobs to the east side
of Gainesville, said Ed Poppell, UF vice
president of finance and administration.
"It will be good for development on
the east side because [UF \\-ill] have a
presence," Poppell said. "The opportuni-
ties here are great to bring important jobs
to the east side."
UF President Berie Machen and
Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan are
very support e of the project, which they
hope will improve town-go.wn relations
Gainesville is "one of the great college
towns left," Machen said, and he has met
with Hanrahan to discuss ways to man-
age university growth. The mayor hoped
to put more housing on UF's campus. but
the university can't afford to buy already-
occupied land along the north and east
edges of campus, Machen said.
The eastside site, previously owned by
the Florida Department of Transportation,
mostly contains "junk buildings," which
the department used to test asphalt and
.road paint, Poppell said. All structures
on the site will be demolished, save three
brick buildings along Waldo Road.
Another facility, a $2.6 million project
dubbed-the Powell Structures & Materials
Testing Laboratory, will allow the College
of Engineering to test the strength of ma-
tE r ia \\ Ith 1I-wheel trucks hauling sup-
plies, it would be a research site ill-suited
to the UF's main campus, Powell said.
Hanrahan hopes the initial plans will
be a "tipping point" for the area.
"I think everyone at the city is very,
very excited," she said. "The university
is taking an old
U F complex that
Admiistation used to be a DOT
building and revitalizing it and providing
new life on the Waldo Road corridor."
Other plans for the site await funding,
but when completed, Poppell said he
hopes the area will become an eastsidee

for both UF and SFCC to hold seminars
and evening classes. The Regional Transit
System may add an express bus route con-
necting the main campus to the east side
through Depot Avenue.
Additionally, the, university is look-
ing to create a health research area along
Archer Road and Depot Avenue. In the
long term, Shands Healthcare hopes to ex-
pand their facilities and entice biotechnol-
ogy firms to the Depot Avenue corridor,

Faith funding worries some
By STEVE SPECHT
Alligator Contributing Writer
The White House's decision to fund
faith-based initiatives has some local or-
ganizations excited over chances for new
monies, but others are worried about pos-
sible discrimination and violations of the
According to the White House Web
site, new federal policy now allows reli-
gious charities to compete for the same
federal grant money once reserved exclu-
sively for nonreligious groups.
The Gainesville Community Ministry
is one local organization that plans to
apply for the available money as soon as
"It's an opportunity we haven't had
before," said Michael Wright, executive
director of the ministry.
The ministry specializes in helping
working-class people who have short-
term health and financial problems.
Wright said that though citizens worry
about a separation of church and state, it
won't be a problem if the money is used
as it is intended to help people.
"It's specifically to help people in cer-
tain areas," he said.
Though faith-based initiatives now
can compete for federal funds, they must
still specify what-any money they receive
would go to fund.
Campus ACLU President Tiffani Velez
supports the idea but worries about the
possibilities of religious organizations
not allowing people of certain groups to
"The money that is given out is paid
by the American taxpayers, and they (reli-
gious institutions) have no right to hire or
fire someone based on sexual preference
or personal beliefs," she said.
Velez expressed concern that allotted
funds need not be spent in accordance
with anti-discrimination laws.
"We support their right to receive fed-
eral funds; they do good work, but in the
past they've disregarded rules previously
Other organizations, such as the
College Republicans, worry about dis-
crimination from another direction.
- "No one is reading the First
Amendment properly; free exercise of
religion is forgotten," Chairman Hunter
"Nobody is trying to establish a state
religion, and I'm glad to see that religious
organizations won't be discriminated
against," he said.
Williams argues that many religious or-
ganizations that sponsor community pro-
grams, such as Alcoholics Anonymous,
are being discriminated against simply
because of their affiliation.
"Money should be given based on

UF allows Monday class drops
By EMILY YEHLE
UF students have until midnight to
drop classes online, but a walk to the reg-
istrar's office next week could save some
from taking an unwanted course.
Students who are registered for block
classes that meet only on Mondays
can drop them without repercussions,
Assistant Registrar Rick Ragan said.
"It's only fair," he said. "How can
you give everybody a free class and the
chance to make up their mind when some
have classes that one day (Monday)?"
Affected students must fill out the of-
ficial drop form, which requires the signa-
ture of their college's dean, and hand it in
at the Office of the University Registrar.
The withdrawal will not be noted on their
transcripts and won't count as one of the
drops allotted by their college.
But Ragan doesn't expect many stu-
dents to need the extra day for dropping
courses since not many classes only meet
"It's always been figured that four
days is plenty of time," he said.
Dropping a Monday Class
Fill out a Course Schedule Change form
in 222 Criser Hall br print one from the
Office of the Registrar's Web site at http:
//www.reg.ufl.edu. If the class dropped
meets only on Mondays, the drop will not
be recorded on a student's transcript or
counted as an allotted drop.

gy sophomore, is taking Begihning Poetry
Writing for three hours on Mondays and
wasn't aware of the drop exception. Since
the class satisfies a writing requirement,
she said she probably wouldn't drop it re-
gardless of her experience next Monday.
"It's only fair. How can you give
everybody a free class and the
chance to make up their mind
when some have classes that
one day (Monday)?"
"I'll probably just stay with it," she
said. "It would be too much of a hassle."
Adding a class is always a possibility
as well, Ragan said. If a student signed
up for at least one class during regular
registration, they can add a class after the
drop-add period without charge, as long
as they've filled out the Course Schedule
When regular registration takes
place prior to the semester's beginning,
classes can be added or dropped Monday

As New Year's Eve 2004 was a univer-
sity holiday, registration shifted ahead

In previous semesters, students regis-
tered for Friday-only classes were given
the same leniency, Ragan said.

Infirmary out of flu shots
By SKYLER SMITH
UF students will have to hurry if they want to
protect themselves from the aches and pains of
this year's flu season.
There are no injection vaccinations left at the
Student Health Care Center and only 40 to 50
FluMist nasal spray doses left, according to Jane
Cullen, director of nursing. SHCC began with
500 doses of each in November, she said.
"We will not be getting any more vaccine this
season," Cullen added.
Cullen said the flu season typically lasts from
October to April, with the upcoming winter
months yielding the most cases.
The FluMist treatment protects against the
same strains of flu as the injection; however,
FluMist contains a live virus whereas injections
have dead virus cells. Because of this, FluMist
can cause a runny nose, headache, sore throat
and weakness, according to
the SHCC Web site.
The Infirmary is offering
FluMist free of charge to UF
students and for $25 to UF

UF shines light on star riddle
* A UF INVENTION AIDED RESEARCH.
By SKYLER SMITH
A team of UF astronomy researchers have dis-
covered the science behind a "lopsided" star.
UF astronomy professor Charles Telesco led
researchers in investigating the star Beta Pictoris'
strange phenomenon: one side of it is brighter
than the other.
The newest theory on the star's imbalance
was made possible by a recent UF invention,
the Thermal-Region Camera Spectrograph, or
T-ReCS. This camera detects radiation but with
finer detail than ever before possible.
T-ReCS was fitted to the Gemini South tele-
scope in Chile and the results were sent back to
Gainesville via video link.
Telesco explained that stars form from a huge
cloud of dust and other material gradually spin-
ning faster and faster. This whirling movement
causes the debris to form a disc around the star.
"It's like when you toss pizza dough to flatten
it out," Telesco said.
The dust coalesces over time to form small
planets, or planetesimals. It was two of these
planetesimals that collided to

6, ALLIGATOR I FRIDAY, JANUARY 7, 2005
The first week of classes is over, and the staff here at the
Department of Darts and Laurels could sure use a drink
After a Christmas full of egg nog and spiced rum, and
maybe a bit too much champagne on New Year's Eve, the
sudden transition back to class hit us like the hangover
after a five-day bender.
Luckily, party hopes are high for this semester now
that the City Commission will soon be taking another look
at the anti-rave laws that always interrupt our fun when
things have just gotten going.
Today, however, there's no time in the Department for
carousing. Instead of going out and having a good time,
we're staying sober for at least one more day to bring you
the news and commentary you've come to expect.-
So sit back, kick your feet up and have a beer for us as
we pour ourselves into this week's edition of ...
Darts & Laurels
As registration comes to a close, we lead off with
an it's-fair-even-if-we-don't-like-it LAUREL to UF's
Enrollment Management Council for instituting a time-
lag for dropped classes on ISIS, which makes it harder for
students to hold seats open for their friends. The change
is sure to be unpopular, but the previous system gave stu-
dents with early registration times-or older friends-an
even bigger advantage in getting precious spaces in UF's
But we're going to come right back and toss a yes-
we're-flip-flopping DART to the Council, because we
didn't get into. that lab section we wanted.
In honor of those who got a rude surprise when trying
to enjoy a little holiday theme-park action with their fami-
lies, we give a that's-not-going-to-make-recovering-from-
the-hirricanes-any-easier DART to Walt Disney World,
SeaWorld, Universal Orlando and Busch Gardens for
raising ticket prices. The parks cited a lack of visitors due
to tourists being scared off by the bad weather, but we all
know Mickey was just looking to make a quick buck off of
SKeeping with the trend of greedy corporate activi-
ties, we launch a he-won't-stop-until-he's-the-emperor-
of-Gainesville DART to Clark Butler, who successfully
lobbied for a four-lane instead of a two-lane expansion to
Southwest 24th Avenue so he could extend Butler Plaza
Because we at the Department have spent a lot of time
pondering how long it'll be until reality shows are the only
things left on TV, we hard an at-least-someone-wants-to-
stop-the-madness LAUREL to WRAZ-TV, the Fox affili-
ate that refused to air the new reality series "Who's Your
Daddy?"-a show that features a woman attempting to
win money by correctly guessing which of eight men is
her biological father.
While we at the Department have logged as many
guilty "Survivor" and "American Idol" hours as anyone, a
line must be drawn somewhere.
And finally, since we're still basking in the glow of
having donated to a worthy cause, we officially end the
first week of Darts and Laurels by bestowing a maybe-
w. e'll-come-to-your-next-keg-party LAUREL to the
Interfraternity Council and the Panhellenic Council for
their efforts to raise money for victims of the December

Representatives may challenge votes
The holiday excitement has finally calmed down,
and we have reached the end of the first week of
classes. Although none of us really want to return
to the long hours of classes and studying, the New Year
brings a certain excitement of what is yet to come.
However, there are a lot of memorable moments
from 2004 that-will not be forgotten easily. Among some
of my favorites would have to be Janet Jackson's peek-
a-boo performance at the Super Bowl, Britney Spears'
-not one, but two marriages, and a Tampa hockey team
winning the Stanley Cup.
And let's not forget the biggest story of all: the 2004
presidential election. For almost an entire year, we were
bombarded with election coverage-from the demo-
cratic primaries down to the final minutes of voting:
Regardless of whether you like or loathe the outcome of
the election, it is my guess that most people are at least
a little glad, if not thrilled, not to have to hear about it
But for those of you looking forward to a presiden-
tial-election-free 2005, I have bad news for you: House
Representatives Barbara-Boxer, Stephanie Tubbs Jones,
John Conyers and Jesse Jackson Jr. are hell-bent on ruin-
ing that. Congress met Thursday to certify the electoral
votes from.each state and sign off on President Bush's
win, and, as of Thursday morning, Boxer and the oth-
ers planned to contest the votes in Ohio-claiming that
fraudulent activity swayed the outcome of the state's
votes. However, there 'is no evidence to support this
Yet Boxer still wants to waste Congress' time and the
That's not to say that if there was, in fact, cause to
- think the election i
0 i ; +
should not be investigated, but
how long are we going to beat
this dead horse?
It's time for these far-left-
wingers to.give it up and move
opaJta 6 'uL And some democrats agree
with me. A few democratic lead-
ers have said Boxer should not contest President Bush's
win, due to the lack of evidence and substance behind
the claim. Others believe she will not formally contest
But during the meeting, Boxer will speak to members
of Congress about voter fraud and how she feels it can
be avoided. If Boxer and the others-decide to contest
the votes, the Senate and the House will go into their
chambers and debate about the vote in Ohio to deter-
mine whether there is evidence of fraud and if the vote
should be turned over.
It seems to me Boxer is only delaying the inevitable
because she doesn't like President Bush. Then again,
maybe she just wants to spend a little extra time with
the other representatives. You know, a little getting-to-
know-each-other debate over the presidential election.
In reality, contesting the vote will do nothing except
waste a lot of time. The vote will not be overturned
because-some of you might want to look away now-
Bush won fair and square.
Maybe we should look at the votes that put Boxer
into office, because I'm starting not to like her.

Options exist for students bummed about expensive books
Christmas may be over for the rest of
the world, but the holiday season
has just begun for textbook compa-
nies. Students are coming back to school in
droves and are required to buy exorbitantly
priced textbooks to fill textbook companies'
coffers. Add a CD-ROM here, an internet
package there and maybe a remote control
gizmo and the prices start spiraling. The big
textbook companies are the doctor and you
are the patient. You buy or you die.
A study done by the California Public
Interest Research Group found that
University of California, Berkeley students
will spend an average of $898 per year on
textbooks in 2003-04, which is almost 20
percent of the average tuition and fees for
in-state students at public four-year colleges
nationwide. In contrast, a 1997 UC. survey
found students spent an average of $642 on
textbooks in 1996-97. Sixty-five percent of
faculty said they "rarely" or "never" use the
bundled materials in their courses.
In fact, gouging has gotten so bad

Letter to the Editor
Contraceptive pill headline was misleading
I am a nurse practitioner at the Student Health Care
Center, and I was concerned that your headline "Groups
demand over-the-counter abortion pills," suggests that the
"morning-after" pill, or emergency contraceptive, is equiva-
lent to an abortion pill. This is inaccurate.
The way the emergency contraceptive pill works is just
like all birth control pills: It prevents the ovary from releasing
an egg (ovulation). If a couple has sex and the condom breaks,
the-sperm can survive in the vagina for three to five days. If
the woman hasn't ovulated, then the pill will prevent ovula-
tion, and thus prevent pregnancy. If the woman has already
ovulated-too late, she's pregnant! That's why emergency
contraceptive is not a very reliable method of contraception. It
is only 75 to 89 percent effective. Some studies suggest emer-
gency contraceptives may change the lining of the uterus,
which interferes with implantation. Other studies, however,
do not support this theory. According to Hatcher, et'al. (2004)
Sin Contraceptive Technology, "inhibition of implantation is
unlikely to be the primary mechanism of action for this con-
traceptive method," (p 285). In reality, by preventing ovula-
tion.and pregnancy. enmergencv ciontracc p e is significant in
preventing abortion. e.

Columnist's criticisms sound familiar
So, Jason Levitt thinks the United Nations is a "corrupt
and inept organization." The Bush administration was also
a harsh critic of the United Nations-before the occupation
of Iraq became a messy quagmire. Last September, we wit-
nessed President Bush put our country in the humiliating
position of having to beg the United Nations for help as con-
cerns mounted over the rising human and financial costs o'
the Iraq occupation. How embarrassing. So which is it? Is th
United Nations really "irrelevant," or is that just sour grape
from those who dropped the diplomatic football when the
war in Iraq was no longer "mission accomplished?"

Improve group reveals SG aspirations amid comedy
By BRIDGET CAREY
Cutting jabs at religion, race, pol-
itics and Gator football, no topic was
safe from the wrath of the Theatre
SStrike Force- Improvisational and
Sketch Comedy Extravaganza.
The show, called. "Theatre Strike
Force Knows Best!!!," kicked off
Thursday, and the improv- group
promises it will provide a different
show tonight and Saturday. Both
shows are scheduled for 8 p.m.
But. the. group announced they
aren't all a bucket of chuckles. They
also have registered as the Strike
Force Party for the Spring Student
Government elections, and toward
the conclusion of their show they

dieston celebrates and entertains the crowd.
declared member Zach Huddleston
would be their party's candidate for
Student Body president.
"We figured hey, let's be social
and or political," Theatre Strike
Force President Eddie Geller said
to the crowd of more than 460
crammed intd the Constans Theatre,
which only seats an audience of 420.
The show includes students in
the improvisation and social-po-
litical issues class, as well as those in
the Strike Force club.
"As time goes on, we'll surely
have more to say," Geller explained,
regarding their future SG political
aspirations, and quickly shifted fo-
cus back to the comedy show.
Although some sketches were
planned, most of the show's mate-
rial came from the audience.
"If we suck, it's your fault,"
The theater group, which boasts
itself to be the largest collegiate
improve and sketch comedy troupe
in the nation, periodically asks the
audience to yell out suggestions
for themes or objects in their per-
formances, forcing actors to perform
SOne sketch -allowed audience
members to think of variations of
the insulting phrase "Your momma
is so fat ..."
When one audience member
shouted "Your professor is so Mark
Rush ..." a sharp-dressed actor in
a suit and tie flew out in response.
"I'm the socially conscious bird,"
When another member of the au-
dience offered the suggestion, "Your
weave is so tight," actor Torian
Cherry threw out the insult "Your
weave is so tight, you're a black girl
with the Chinese eyes."
Cherry has been involved with
the troupe since he joined the class
in the Fall, and said one of the best
parts of acting is seeing his peers
send the audience into tears.
"I promise once you see it you'll
die laughing," Cherry said.
One of Cherry's favorite sketches
is one that references the environ-
mentally conscious early-'90s car-
toon show "Captain Planet." The
troupe gave a glimpse at how the
modem day Captain Planet and
the Planeteers with the monkey
- would protect the Earth from
looting and polluting.
A superhero funeral sketchbegan
with an audience suggestion that the
superhero they were mourning was
"Extreme Body-Piercing Man." One
actor approached the imaginary
casket and said, "I was Extreme
Body Piercing Man's best friend:
Some of the audience sugges-
tions threw the troupe into bizarre
territory, spouting dialogue such
as, "I wish I could be French toast
and pregnant," but it didn't stop
the auditorium from roaring with
Creativity sometimes got the best
of the actors, when one thought it
would be amusing to run outside
the theater but got locked out.
While audience participation
tended to be explicitly sexual, the
Strike Force worked to keep the
material rated PG and also live up
to its-promise to be "funnier than

Poetry readings at fraternity event get "Soultry"
Listen to audio excerpts at www.alligator.org
By NEIL HUGHES
Angie Nixon wants fellow fe-
males with small backsides to know
they're not alone.
"Small-booty women, stand up!"
she proclaimed to the standing-

Nixon was one of many per-

Thursday night as Phi Beta Sigma
fraternity continued events in rec-
ognition of its Founder's Week with
an evening of poetry readings and
The fraternity called the night's
event "Soultry," in reference to
the soulful nature of poetry, Social
Chairman Antonio Redding said.
"We're trying to reach the mind,
body and soul of everybody here,"
In attendance for the event
were Student Body President Jamal
Sowell and Treasurer Dennis Ngin.
"I always come out and support
the brothers of Phi Beta Sigma,"
Sowell said. "I look forward to every
single Sigma week."
The event was emceed by frater-
nity brothers Chris Hightower and
Music was provided by Darius
"D." Moore on bass guitar and John
"J.J." Cowart on keyboard. The two
played jazzybackground music dur-
ing many of the poetry readings.
"We do thisall the time," Moore
said, noting he and Cowartalso play
at the Institute for Black Culture's
poetry readings Wedinesday nights.
"We play along iwth the mood of
the poetry and feel the flow," Moore,
a second-year health science stu-
dent;said. "If they want us to pick it
up or slow it down, we do it."
Before reciting his two memo-
rized poems, Jermaine Wall free-
styled in response to Nixon's ode to

is fast," Wall said in his impromptu
poem, which he called "Skinny

Coaching staff readies for first weekend of visits

group of official visitors tripping

Lee admits mistakes, looks forward
* THE GATORS WILL FACE
ARKANSAS ON SATURDAY.
By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
For forward David Lee, the
clock is ticking.
With only 16 guaranteed
games remaining in his colle-
giate career, a sense of urgency
has overcome UF's lone senior.
Every passing moment provides
an opportunity to mold the con-
clusion of his UF career.
That may explain the griev-
ing look that marked Lee's face
as he sat helplessly on the bench
during the second half of his
team's loss to Florida State.
After an unproductive first
half, Lee took a seat less than
five minutes into the second,
leaving one of his worst games
with the Gators.
On Saturday, however, he will
have a chance to atone in the last
Southeastern Conference opener
of his career, as his Gators will
host Arkansas at noon.
Lee realized that his two at-
tempted shots against FSU were
not enough for the team leader
he is supposed to be, and agreed
with Coach Billy Donovan's as-
sertions that he should step up
'"~ly Donovan said it cor-
rectly," Lee said. "I need to be
more aggressive. It's not always
up to Anthony Roberson or Billy
Donovan to get me shots."
Lee said that after watching
film, it was torturous to see the
way he trotted instead of ran
and failed to put out enough
"It's awful," Lee said, "be-
cause you can't get it back.
Especially being my senior year,
that's the last time I'm going to'
play Florida State."
But if Lee wants to re-
bound with a win against the
Razorbacks, he'll have to bear
a greater burden at both ends of

where we've got Roberson and

said. "I don't know if our freih-
men are ready right now. But as
