Access pushes to fulfill goals
By BRIDGET CAREY and
With two months left until
Spring elections, Access Party
leaders are shifting efforts into
high gear to accomplish campaign
promises before the term runs
Since May, the party has domi-
nated Student Government and
delivered on 14 out of 40 plat-
form promises, with nine others
in progress toward completion.
If successful with all 23, it would
mean Access will have carried out
slightly more than 50 percent of
"We only put things on our
platform that we believe we can
accomplish, that we can take mea-
surable steps toward," said Andre
Samuels, adviser to Student Body
President Jamal Sowell. "We ac-
complished more in our one term
than any other party in the last
three to four terms."
Expanding wireless Internet
around campus, adding an extra
Student Nighttime Auxiliary
Patrol (SNAP) van and starting the
Chomp the Vote registration drive
are some of the Access Party's ac-
complishments from its platform
as submitted in Spring 2004.
And its Fall semester goal to
fight block tuition has embroiled
the party in a bruising battle.
Block tuition, which would
charge all students for 15 credits
regardless of the number of ac-
tual credit hours taken, is being

Samuels says that some ambi-

internship opportunities related
to their fields of study, probably
will not happen during the current
The difficulty of the goal didn't
stop Access from making it a
promise to students, Samuels said.
"We didn't hesitate to put
something on our platform that
would take some time and in the
long. run would be extremely ben-
eficial to the entire student body,"
-Roadblocks on the path
Many of the party's platforms
have been met with resistance at
times, Access leaders said.
Plans for the Reitz Union food
court to accept credit cards have
been difficult to pass muster with
Gator Dining Services, Samuels
said. Party officials met with
administrators in June .without
The party's goal to construct
an Asian and Asian-American
culture institute and improve
buildings for the Institute of Black
Culture and La Casita was stalled
by funding and administration
obstacles. Sowell said funding for
the Asian institute probably won't
be available until 2008.
Due to funding restrictions, the
formation and maintenance of a
multicultural center would close
existing institutions such as the
IBC and La Casita.
Sowell said he felt students did
not want to lose the individual
An explosives expert he "ain't."
Following a series of seemingly novice bomb threats,
Gainesville Police arrested Alvin Bernard Barnes, 205 NW
14th St., Saturday afternoon near the Gainesville Lodge motel,
where he had been staying.
Police say Barnes, 41, made four separate bomb-threat calls
to the Alachua County Sheriff's Office after being evicted from
room No. 207 for "consistent disorderly" conduct.
Barnes apparently forgot his "lines" by the second call.
"[There is a] bomb going off at the Gainesville Sun... I
mean, Gainesville Lodge, and it ain't in room No. 207," Barnes
said, according to police reports.
Police officers later apprehended Barnes near a University
Avenue pay phone, from which he made his last phone call.
A search of hotel premises by police did not uncover any ex-
THIRD VANDALISM SUSPECT SURRENDERS TO POLICE: A day
after the arrest of his two friends for Thursday's vandalism
spree, Alexander J. Poser, 5406 NW 88th St., hired a lawyer and
turned himself in to police Friday evening.
Under the influence of alcohol, Poser and Jeremy Weathers
Martin, both 19, and Ryan Matthew Luca, 20, took a lug wrench
and golf clubs to a number of cars, mailboxes and a $1,200
fountain along West University Avenue on Thursday morning,
Martin and Luca confessed Thursday afternoon, and al-
though police forces knew of Poser's participation in the crime,
they were unable to locate him immediately.
GPD spokesman Sgt. Keith Kameg said he hopes the vic-
tims of the more than .30 separate incidents 'are compensated
for their losses.
"This was a reckless, kind of stupid act that probably won't
warrant prison time, but I do hope that it will warrant restitu-
tion that all thece people will get paid for what they lost and

Plans to improve parks de-

"We were really hoping that
would pass," he said. "That was
a little bit out of our hands. What
we're looking into now is private-
ly building some ofthose parks on
campus, and we're currently just
looking for sites."
A plan to have "Fireside

Roosevelt's Fireside Chats, was
altered when party leaders decid-
ed not to go through with plans to

One plan in the works is to

Sust like every other person with a
political opinion, Michael Moore
has his detractors. A simple Google
arch of "Michael Moore" directs you
to a plethora of sites that allegedly
chronicle Moore's lies, misjudgments
and conspiracies. We brought Michael

speech was covered in every local
Sand regional paper and on television,
radio and Intemet news sources. With
12,000 people in attendance and others
waiting outside, the turnout could not
have been more exciting.
Accent, Student Government's
speakers bureau, has a long history
of bringing political ruckus to the UF.
From those infuriated by the decisions
of the elder President Bush in the Gulf
War to those disgusted by President
Clinton's infidelities, Accent always
earns much criticism for our choice of
speakers. Accent sFpeakers bureau will

political rhetoric and will never shy
away from controversy.
In regard to the FEC complaint
filed, by the Arizona attorney David
T. Hardy, Accent and UF stand by the
decision to bring Michael Moore. The
General Counsel's office was consulted
on several occasions regarding specific
questions, and the university's attor-
neys confirmed our legality in bringing
all political commentary in such a heat-
ed election season, including Moore
and Gov. Pataki. As with other speak-
ers, the university supported Accent's
decisions and sought to uphold stu-
dent autonomy In return, Accent pro-
ceeded in accordance with all of the ap-
propriate guidelines applied from the
university and beyond. Accent keeps
accurate and detailed records of every

Despite controversy, UF
was right to hire Moore
Just when we started to think Michael Moore was losing
his edge, he has found a way to come kicking and scream-
ing into the forefront of electoral politics once again.
This time, Moore is at the center of an election-law battle
as FEC complaints filed against UF and other universities
allege the hiring of Moore as a speaker constituted illegal
contributions to the Kerry-Edwards campaign.
But the complaints are dubious from the outset, as their
filer, Arizona lawyer David T. Hardy, is hardly a disinterested
party. Along with Jason Clarke, he is co-author of "Michael
Moore Is A Big Fat Stupid White Man"-a book that is, to say
the least, highly critical of Moore's work.
Because of Hardy's public anti-Moore stance, it is.difficult
to see the complaint against the Accent-sponsored speech as
anything other than an attempt by Hardy to exploit the law
to punish opponents of his political beliefs.
Legally, however, the complaint may have a chance of
succeeding. It is possible UF may be found to have violated
federal election laws by paying for a speaker who was obvi-
ously going to be vocal in his support of one candidate over
But UF and Accent are standing by their decision, as they
In this case, intentions-are more important than outcome.
While there could have been no doubt Moore was going to
hit Gainesville with pro-Kerry guns blazing, it is unlikely he
was hired specifically to influence student voters.
Love him or hate him, Moore is one of the most controver-
sial and visible figures in popular culture today. His speech
was an opportunity for UF students to hear firsthand from
someone who has shaped public perceptions and has made
himself into one of the world's foremost media icons.
Accent recognized this opportunity, so they jumped on it.
This is not to say they couldn't have done more to provide
a balanced slate of speakers for UF students. Someone from
the far right should have been hired, so both sides could have
had the same opportunities to incite passion from respective
Obviously, that sort of staunchly conservative speaker
did not come.
The de-facto pro-Bush response to Michael Moore was
provided by New York Gov. George Pataki, who had origi-
nally been hired to commemorate the anniversary of the
Sept. 11 attacks. Though a knowledgeable source of infor-
mation on the attacks, Gov. Pataki is nowhere near the kind
of hard-line conservative ideologue required to. counteract
Moore's fiery rhetoric.
And while Anne Coulter and Rush Limbaugh are unlikely
to tour the university circuit any time soon, an effort to find
someone to do the job should have been made.
Regardless, hiring Michael Moore was an opportunity UF
and Accent could not ignore. To expect them to have acted
otherwise would have deprived students of a chance they
may never have had again.
And students who didn't want that chance did not have
to attend the speech.
In the end, this is an issue that transcends personal poli-
tics. Whether or not you agree with Moore's views is beside

Letters to the Editor
Black history about more than activism
Editor I am extremely concerned about the
article in Thursday's Alligator about Snoop
performing during Black History Month. The
author was of the opinion Snoop was a bad
choice and didn't represent black history.
Why? Snoop is black. He has been a well-
known black entertainer for years. Does that
not make him a part of'black history and
future? It seems to me that with the fourth-
highest record sales in rap music he definitely
reaches this generation. So, why is it a very
popular black man is said to be wrong for en-
tertainment during Black History Month?
I have been under the impression history
could be a minute ago, yesterday, last year or
last decade. From what I can tell, Snoop was
around-and black-throughout these times
in history. Why must black history focus its at-
tention on slavery instead of what blacks have
accomplished since? The focus should be on
what, as a race, they are doing and which di-
rection they would like to go.
Finally, I am appalled at the suggestion
that Lauryn Hill would have been a better
choice. Why. She hasn't been popular for a
decade, while Snoop's popularity is holding
strong. But, most importantly, she is a racist.
She made a comment after her album hit it big
that she would rather starve and be on welfare
than have a white person buy her album.
So, would it be better to have a performer
who entertains all races and is at the height of
his career, or a racist has-been? I would rather
have no entertainment than Lauryn Hill.
Columnist should stick to the facts

I understand that opinions are opinions. I
understand that opinions are not facts. What
I do not understand is someone who states a
fact and then proclaims an opinion entirely
contrary to that fact.

Jury selection begins today in local murder trial
Man charged in former girlfriend's death
By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
Jury selection in the murder
trial of Ralph Fayson II is set
to begin Tuesday at 9 a.m. at
the Alachua County Criminal
Fayson -is accused of killing
his former -.girlfriend, Crystal
Lachaun Grant, in May.
Six days after the the 22-year-
old SFCC student's death, an
apartment manager and mainte-
nance man discovered her badly
decomposed body in her Fox
Fresh from a community pool
party, Grant was still clad in a
swimsuit top and shorts when her
attacker stabbed her in the neck.
Fayson, 33, was the last per-
son seen with Grant before her
death on May 15, according to
This isn't the first time Fayson
has been linked to violence
Between 1993 and 2003, Fayson
was charged with assault against
six different women seven dif-
ferent times. One of these cases
involved the 1994 aggravated bat-
-tery of a former girlfriend, Lanu
Perosi. Fayson was sentenced to
prison for choking Perosi and
then stabbing her in the neck with
a steak knife. The wound required
24 stitches to close, according to
Wary of pretrial publicity, State
Attorney spokesman Spencer
Mann would not divulge details
of the case.
FBK member wants motto fulfilled
ACCESS, from page 1
bers often has happened in years past.
"It's- a first come, first served registration,"
she said. "If the students are eligible, then the
party, in fact, is approved."
Sowell said Shrine has had no affiliation
with the party. He added that this was the first
time he has seen someone use another active
political party's name since he's been at UF.
Shrine said the reason he took the Access
Party name.was not because of "dirty politics"
but because he believes his party can do a bet-
ter job of representing the ideals the original
Access Party spoke about during last Spring's
election. Those ideals include opening up SG
opportunities to all students, regardless of
Greek or FBK membership.
"It was only a few of us that did it," Shrine
said. "I believe in all the ideals of the Access
Party, and I believe in the past they haven't
followed through with them."
Shrine said he noticed Access was giving
preference to those in the Greek system and
those in FBK. But, an FBK member himself,
Shrine said the affiliation is not an issue.
"As far as (Florida) Blue Key goes, I've
never been involved in the dealings and the
politics," he said. "I've been passed over in
many positions by people who said they
Shrine said his newly formed Access Party
is deciding whether it will choose a student to
run for Student Body president.
What he said mattered to him was protect-
ing the original meaning of the Access Party
by owning the name and ensuring fulfillment
.of the Access motto: "Access for all students."
"I feel that more of an independent voice is
needed," he said.
Shrine said he never has directly sup-
ported any political-party in the past.
"It wasn't anything about dirty politics,"
he said. "I just feel this is a better way to go.
News of Shrine's actions surprised current
"That was totally unexpected for someone
to take your name that you worked hard for
so that you wouldn't be able to use it," Sowell
The president was a creator of the original
Access Party prior to his victorious election
last Spring. SG parties must re-register before
each semester's election period. It is legal for
any student to register for any party name
during the allotted time frame. This leaves
Sowell and others unable to take legal action
against Shrine for using the Access name.
"Now we're trying to strategize things to
see where we're going to go from here," he
i Andre Samuels, an.
adviser to Sowell, said the
party now will have to fo-
cus on running a clean and
alh honest campaign when
other parties will be "trick-
ing the student."
"These are the begin-
Samuels nings of character assas-
sination," Samuels said.
"These are the beginnings of the truly dirti-
est politics SG used to play."
Using previously held party names, as
well as having insiders set up "dummy par-
ties so students don't know who to vote for"
are typical of SG's past, Samuels said.
As of Friday afternoon, seven parties
have applied to become a party, including
Ignite, Keg and The Gator Party.
Samuels said the reasons for these so-
called political tricks .are other parties are
not confident they can win on merit alone.
"Students don't vote if they feel that
there's, just too much dirt and too much
dishonesty going on," he said. "And that's
what they want."
NOW, from page 1
cause she already has cast a vote in sup-
port of us, and ultimately, she has no say
on whether the morning-after pill will
go over-the-counter," Mangan said.
The protesters still plan "to keep the
pressure on Steven Galson by calling
and harassing him every chance we.
get," Mangan said..
The group, who planned on passing
out morning-after pills to passersby,
only passed out two pills.
Elizabeth Hansen, Pro-Life Alliance
president, said the protest was misguid-
ed and used the wrong approach.
"The morning-after pill promotes
promiscuity," Hansen said. "This is a
free country, so there is always room for
other opinions, as long as they're legal."
Other Gainesville residents arrested
were Stephanie Seguin, Candy Churchill
and Jenny Brown.

Tricla Coyne, Alligatot Staff
Matt Del Pizzo and Peter Gwynn-Sackson talk with Brian Galgay and other members of Phi Kappa Tau
Fraternity at the Interfraternity Council Spring Rush Forum on the Reitz Union Colonnade Sunday. The
IFC executive board hosted a forum, which began in the Reitz Union Auditorium.
By KYLIE CRAIG
About three dozen fraternity
potentials nervously milled about
the Reitz Union Sunday in hopes of
learning more about Greek brother-
hood and the Spring Rush process.
The Interfratemity Council
Spring Rush Forum, which took
place in the Reitz Union Auditorium
and on the Colonnade, gave the
men a chance to ask questions about
the rush process as well as to meet
representatives from each of IFC's
The event began with a forum
hosted by the IFC executive board.
Crowd members learned what
fraternities have to offer in the areas
of service, academics, brotherhood,.
sportsmanship and socials.
Administrative Vice President
Jeremy Martin spoke about the per-
sonal benefits of joining a fraternity,
saying, "When people graduate,
they come out as better students,
better leaders and better citizens."
The attendees then were given
the basics on the rush process, and
Director of Greek Life Chris Bullins
emphasized the importance of ask-
ing questions and visiting as many
chapters as possible.
"Take the time to think through
this and make sure you find the
right fit," Bullins said.
Bullins also told students that the
process was as much about them se-
lecting a chapter as it was about the
chapter selecting them.
The board answered questions
Many attendees were
Greek concerned about going
Life through the process as a
junior or transfer student
as well as about rushing for the sec-
ond time this year.
Those concerned were told re-
gardless of their classification or pre-
vious attempts at Greek member-
ship, they still would be considered.
Following the forum, students
headed outside to meet representa-
tives from each fraternity and offi-
cially begin the recruitment process.
UF freshman C.J. Thomas, 18,
said he decided to rush because it
seemed fun and that his goal is "just
to find a fraternity that has like-
minded people in it."
Brandon Dodd, recruitment
chairman for Kappa Alpha, gave a
few tips on how to have a successful

Incoming players to bolster talented, young team
By NATASHA WEINSTEIN
With only three upperclass-
men, the UF women's tennis team
is young. But what they lack in
age, the seven women make up
with talent and dedication.
Junior Jennifer Magley, who
is expected to have the top seed
for the start of the season, leads
the team after the loss of Alexis
An All-American, Magley is
joined by senior Zerene Reyes and
junior Boglarka Berecz.
"We are certainly going to rely
on those three returning players
in experience and playing ability,"
Coach Roland Thomqvist said.
The sophomore and three
freshmen that complete the team
are extremely able players with a
work ethic that will allow them to
be a top team, Thornqvist said.
He admits that the season may
be slightly up and 'wn, espe-
cially in the beginning. Thornqvist
said he enjoys the challenge of
teaching such a young team.
Though the team might not play
to its capability early on due to
lack of experience, he's confident
that ,by season's end, everyone
will be playing better.
"The new players know it's go-
ing to take hard work to get back
to that absolute elite level of play,
and even though they're young,
their greatest asset is their work
ethic," he said. "I'm hoping that
this will transition into good fin-
ishes this year."
"We have an extremely tal-
ented team and their pres-
ence on court is always
UF tennis player
Thornqvist said a strong point
for the girls is in their doubles
play. Pairs Magley and Reyes
and freshmen Whitney Benik and
Lolita Frangulyan should bring
points to the team.
"They [Magley and Reyes]
compliment each other really well,
and I'm looking forward to a great
year from them," he said. "They're
really close to having a breakout
season and doing really well."
As a leader of the team, Magley
said she is looking forward to
the challenge of being in the top
position and is excited about the
"We have an extremely tal-
ented team and their presence on
court'is always known," Magley
She added that she believes the
three freshmen are some of the
best in their recruiting class.
"They've had a lot of experi-
ence," Magley said. "They've
played around the world. They
know what teams are about and
what it's like to be on the court."
Magley. said she's confident
that the team could go all the way
"When you play sporf6 you
should expect to win," she said.
"All you can do is go out there
and try your hardest, work your
hardest and whatever comes,
come what may."

son Thursday at the National

UF's lead by coming within 10 points
in the last 1:17, largely due to a 14-point

high 20 points.
However, Arkansas could not over-

that because he set the tone for our team
Still, Lee's biggest surprise was his con-
verted jump shots:
From Wednesday to Friday, Lee worked

the rough edges on his offensive game.
Donovan is embracing Lee's -newfound
vigor wholeheartedly and will do what-
ever it takes to keep Lee in that mind set.
"I told David, 'I'll do anything you want
me to do. I will yell and scream. I'll be nice.
I'll do whatever you want me to do get you
to play at the level you can play at. What
do you want me to do? Let me know,'"
Whether Lee responds like this again
against Auburn is yet to be seen. But on
Saturday, he was the man with the convic-
tion and the game to bury it.
"I'm telling you, every possession, I was
living and dying today," Lee said. "I can't
tell you I had a lot of friends in town. I re-
ally wanted to show them the Gator way
of winning today. We really wanted to give
people a reason to cheer for us this SEC

Bulldogs coach Suzanne

that their routines were more

She also had good things to

UF rallies to knock off Auburn
By MICHAEL MAURINO
Sometimes, it's not a matter of if, but when.
Looking like it was due for a loss, the UF women's
basketball team fell behind 48-42 to Auburn with less than
eight minutes remaining. Leading much of the game, it
seemed UF's lack of depth and poor shooting had finally
caught up to the Gators.
But then there were layups from forward Dalila
Eshe and senior guard Tamia Williams while forward
Bernice Mosby got to the foul line. Clutch 3-pointers from
Williams sealed the deal.
In what was their most exciting and highest-attended
game of the season, the Gators rallied to defeat Auburn
Sunday's win follows a Gators victory at Arkansas that
kicked off Southeastern Conference play. Now at 11-4 and
2-0 in the SEC, Coach Carolyn Peck is pleased with her
"My team continues to impress me and show a lot of
character," Peck said. "Trying to put together back-to-back
wins in the SEC is never an easy task."
Displaying the all-around play it had againstArkansas,
UF played its best 20 minutes in dosing the gap in the sec-
Auburn was riding the momentum of erasing an 8-
point lead in the first, and took the lead at the 13:11 mark
of the second period.
But, Auburn got into foul trouble, putting UF in the bo-
nus halfway through the second half. As the Gators began
chipping away at the Tigers' lead, shooting 48 percent,
Mosby took a more active role, stepping up on defense
and getting to the foul line. .- ,-; ,

3 of 5 from the field in the second. She attributed her im-
provement to her trips to the free throw line.
"When your shots aren't.falling, you have to penetrate
to the basket and try to draw a foul," said Mosby, whp fin-
ished with 17 points and nine rebounds. "It really opened
things up for me and I gained more confidence in my shot
and everything started clicking as a team."
Also clicking was Williams. Playing in place of in-
jured guard Danielle Santos, the senior scored 22 points.
She drained four 3-pointers and none were bigger than
her two consecutive threes that put the
Gators up 58-54 with less than three
Williams might not have had her
chances, however, had it not been for
After -starting the season with
,a bum left knee, Eshe has become
Williams a defensive force under the hoop.
Patrolling the lane, Eshe had 8 points
and eight rebounds, and seemed to affect every play in
the final five minutes.
"She was one of the frontrunners to be a major con-
tributor, maybe even start for us," said Peck of Eshe
before her injury. "She has really fought and worked
her way back, and working extremely hard to definitely
contribute to this team."
The Gators' fast start and eventual rally could have
been attributed to the crowd. Numbering less than
4,000, but sounding like much more than that during the
second half, the fans in attendance made their presence
"The crowd was backing us up, the energy was flow-
ing through all our teammates," Williams said. "And it

IANNINGS, from page 20
Not only did the team have to get past losing Walsh,
but David Lee needed to play better than he did against
FSU for this team to go anywhere. On Saturday, Lee
looked like the player everyone expected him to be
from the start.
It's no coincidence- that this came after Coach
Billy Donovan benched Lee. They had a meeting and
Donovan told Lee what he expected.
Lee got the message.
For the next four weeks, Lee will not only have to
play like he did Saturday, but he's also going to have to
be a senior leader.
If that happens and the team plays well around him,
Walsh's loss may not be as tragic as I thought it'd be.
While Arkansas' record may have been good, it
might not have been that big a test for the Gators at

Gators rebound in SEC opener
By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
W\-reri hi-name was announced
during pre-game introductions,
a stern stare of concentration ap-
peared on Da, id Lee's face.
By the end ot LIF s 82-74 victory
against Arkansas in its Southeastern
Conference opener, his demeanor
grew more upbeat.
As he skipped down the court
when time expired, a smile replaced
the look of stone.
And why not?
While the league schedule is
less than one week old, the Gators
- with guard Matt Walsh sidelined
for at least a month and the embar-
rassing loss to in-state rival Florida
State fresh on everyone's mind -
faced as close to a must-win game
as a team can.
And coming off his self-described
"poor pf..rfomriance." Lee led the
Gators (9-3, 1-0 SEC) to victory.
"As for our team, as far as be-
ing short-handed, I think it really
encourages us that we can beat a tre-
mendous Arkansas team," Lee said.
"I think we needed this one at home.
It's great getting a win at home

* THE SENIOR SCORED 17 POINTS
By LOUIS ANASTASIS

All that Coach Billy Donovan had to do
to get David Lee back on track was give
him an ultimatum.
After logging a forgettable 4-point, two-
rebound performance against Florida State
on Jan. 2, Donovan had a meeting with
Lee. It wasn't an emotional, motivational
speech, but rather an unveiling of the
truth, as Donovan describes it. He showed
Lee his options: continue playing half-

heartedly and get benched or step it up like
a senior and finish your season strong.
Saturday against Arkansas, Lee chose
the latter. He finished the game with 17
points on 6 of 7 shooting, seven rebounds,
five assists, two blocks and one steal.
"He had every right to call me out like
that," Lee said. "I'm a veteran. I'm a senior.
I'm a captairt of this team. If I don't pro-
duce, I need to be benched, or I need to be
called out by the media. If that's the
way he wants to do it, then that's fine."
Lee didn't waste any time making his
presence felt as he opened the game with

UF motivated without Walsh

Call me a pessimist, but without
Matt Walsh, I thought this team was
going nowhere. Not after a loss to
Florida State in which the Gators
looked worse than me during my

Arkansas has changed my mind.
Arkansas may not be as good as its
13-2 record would indicate, but that
doesn't matter. Coaches and players
will tell you any conference game is

What fans witnessed against
Arkansas was a story of motivation.
Somehow, the Gators found it. They
looked like a totally different team
than the one that lost to FSU.

Strength and Conditioning, was hired by
Oklahoma State. He had served the Gators
I thought that
at least the first
four weeks of
going to be filled
with losses, I'm
-not so sure any-
It seems to me that losing Walsh
may have given the rest of the team
something to rally around. In no way
is losing your leading scorer a good
thing, but the Gators needed some-
thing to get them going.
It'll be interesting to see if they
can keep their energy up for the gru-
eling SEC season.
