is planned for the staff this year.

will not be affected, human resources is

* TSUNAMI DISASTER

Vigil unites university


Gators gather

to remember

A sea of candlesJlit the faces of con-
cerned students Tuesday evening at
a vigil hosted by Gators for Tsunami
Relief, a coalition of more than 20 stu-
dent groups.
About 250 people gathered on the
Reitz Union North Lawn, taking tifne
to reflect on the devastation and loss of
life in South Asia and Africa..
The vigil raised more than $1,200,
putting the coalition's total fund-rais-
ing etf, -rti at alrnost $4,700.
UF President Bernie Machen and
three professors told the pensive crowd
how the tragedy had touched them.

she still is shaking.
The morning of the tsunami, she
and her family had planned to go snor-
keling at 10.
At about 8 a.m., they felt the earth
shake, and the building they were in
swayed. Later, as people came into
the hotel to escape the rushing wa-
ter, she and her family tended to the
wounded.
She said she couldn't help but think,
"We could have been part of that de-
bris if we had been there (snorkeling at
sea) a few hours earlier."
Simonne attested to the nature of
the tsunami, noting the waves did not
distinguish between victims.
Machen called the natural disaster
the worst of his lifetime, adding that
if anything good has come from recent
events, it is that people have put aside
their differences to help others.
"When all is said and done, we are
all brothers and sisters on this planet,"
he said.
Religion professor Vasudha
Narayanan also commented on the
sweeping nature of the disaster, saying

The economy is improving, and that could

Francis said that whether a student gradu-

College gets $2M


* THE NEW PROGRAM IS
DUE TO BEGIN FALL 2005.

By MATT KELLY
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's M.E. Rinker Sr. School
of Building Construction soon
will get a facelift thanks to a do-
nation from a local construction
company.
Charles Perry, CEO of Charles
Perry Construction and a UF
graduate, provided $2 million'to
the Rinker School of the College
of Design, Construction and
Planning to fund the Charles
R. Perry Program for Crafts'
Awareness.
The program will bring in
master craftsmen to train stu-
dents in 16 different trades and
aims to give students insight into
what to look for in subcontract-
ing work.
"When it comes to knowing
the people that they are manag-
ing, they really don't know what
is inside those skills or trades,"
said Abdol R. Chini, Rinker
School director. "So we're trying
to expose the students to what


goes on with these craftspeople
and the difference between good
and bad quality and productiv-
ity."
The state is expected to add
$1.6 million in matching funds
by July, when planning and
designing will begin for an addi-
tional facility featuring a roofed
construction yard.
Though the addition is not
expected to be finished until
January 2006, Chini said the pro-
gram likely will begin Fall 2005.
Perry's gift also,will fund a
public art project to be displayed
at Rinker Hall.
Jay M. Stein, dean of the col-
lege, said he
hopes these
programs will
put Rinker on
the map as
one of the top
construction
programs at
Stein any univer-
sity.
"This program is a signifi-
cant development in building
construction education, and we
expect it to be a national, even
international model," he said.

COUNTY COMMISSION

Machen reaches out to curb excessive alcohol consumption


By RENAUD LAJOIE
Alligator Writer

Concerns about alcohol abuse among UF students and
the Gainesville community spurred UF President Bernie
Machen to propose a meeting to explore possible collabora-
tive efforts between the university and the Alachua County
Commission in combatting it.
In a letter dated Monday, Machen invited Cynthia
Chestnut, chairwoman of the commission, "and other com-
munity members" to a meeting to discuss what he views as
"the number-one health issue on college campuses."


"It is our impression that excessive student drinking is
not just a problem of the University of Florida, but of the
entire community," Machen wrote.
Machen noted UF's efforts in mitigating the problem
with "a variety of educational and social programs" but
expressed a desire to forge a "meaningful partnership"
in "creating and leading a healthy community" with the
commission.
Though Machen said in an interview Tuesday night
he did not have a finalized plan yet, the letter proposed
several approaches including "consistent enforcement of
policies and laws" and an "increase in educational op-

drinking is notjust a problem of the University
of Florida, but of the entire community."

portunities," as well as "additional resource allocation to
these efforts."
The meeting is scheduled for Jan. 19 at 9:30 a.m. in the
Chamber of Commerce's Parrish Boardroom, Suite 100.

Vote may end faculty union dispute


By MEGAN SEERY
Alligator Staff Writer
mseery@alligator.org

An ongoing dispute between unionized
UF faculty and the university's highest
governing body soon may come to a vote.
"I think a decision is imminent," said
Steve Meck, general counsel for the state's
Public Employees Relations Commission,
charged with resolving labor disputes be-
tween public employees and employers.
"The issue has been rigorously con-
tested by both parties."
Since: the UF Board of Trustees took
over governing the university in January
2003, it has refused to recognize the exist-
ing chapter of United Faculty of Florida,
which has represented UF faculty since
1976. The unit represents all UF colleges
except the law and nmtdical schools and
the Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences, or IFAS.
Unner-it aidmunishtators are petition-
ing PERC to include those groups in the
union's collective bargaining unit. which
negotiates terms such as compensation,
medical leave and intellectual prroperh.
Some faculty say forcing all colleges
to vote may doom a majority supporting
unionization because faculty members in
the outside units do not think their inter-
ests are shared by all faculty.
"[Eormer UF President Charles Young]
believes that if IFAS, the law school and
Health Science Center are included in a
vote, the chances of rejecting the union are
improc ed" former IFAS Vice President
Mike Martin wrote in a November 2003
e-mail. 'President 'Ioung wants IFAS fac-
ulty to vote because he does not want us or
.anu L\-' els in the union"
Both sides are waiting to- hear from
PERC about who is allowed to vote for
or against the union, which filed its initial
petition in December 2002.
Although the commission had 90 days


to respond after issuing its last order in
2004, it has been weighed down by paper-
work, Meck said.
"It (the UF v. UFF case) is litigated
more than the vast majority) of cases," he
said. "There is a statutory limit, but it has
passed due to the protractedness of the
litigation."
Compared to the judicial _-stem,
PERC's deliberation hasn't taken that long,
he said.
UF "The commis-
Aill.saliSa 'i'iln sion cares more
about making
a correct decision than a fast decision."
Meck said. "It has to make sure it won't
be a question in appellate court in years
to come."
-
Debate affects morale
Kim Emery, president of UF's chapter
of UFF, said some faculty in the excluded
units feel like pawns in the legal battle
"They (UF administra.ators never asked
the faculty at these schoolss if they \ hinted
tobe a part of the faculty unit," .aid Emery,
an a.-sociate English protfessor
But interim UF Provost Joe Glover said
the issue is about looking ahead to the uni-
versity's fiut re. hot disarninun thIe uij.:.n
"The old bargaining unit \ wa really the
result of a \-ackro.mn deal brokr red by the
Board of Regents decades ago," Glover
said. "We have one group of faculty on
campus and don't believe it should be split
into different pieces."
Meanwhile, the faculty's inability to
collectively. bargain dampens morale,
Emery said.
"It's demoralizing i\hen the trustees do
not recognize our experience and the con-
clusions that ne draw from it," she said.,
Emery said her concern about morale
reflects a growing senbment among UF
professors viho seekiunionization
"The crucial tling about the union is
that faculty have a real voice and not just


a \-.nbolic voice in protecting academic
freedoms," she said, referencing what she
calls. a "horrible" relation-hip between
educator. and -tate legislators. "It's a way
to piotect academic values against what's
politically expedient."
Low tacult morale also affects stu-
dents, UF associate telecommunications
professor Michael Leslie said.
"A fac lt member who feels sup-
ported by thf ins-htution will reflect that
in the quality of teaching and instruction,"
Leslie said.
A decline in morale leads to decreased
productivity, reflected by greater absentee-
isni and stifled research, thus.devaluing
UF's reputation and the degrees it awards,
Leslie said
"When faculty morale is low, faculty
begin to look for other opportunitie-.." he
said. "The uni\ er.ity loses \ ery high qual-
ity taculty e\ery year because thl\ go to
other places where their contibuhons are
recognized."

A faculty challenge
UF Pre-ident Bernie Nllachen has said
he would support unionization if all fac-
ulty participated in an election and the-
required majority \otEd in its favor.
However, the university still prefers an
alternative to unionization, Glover said.
"We've asked the faculty union to name
the concrete achieve ments it's made over
the past 25 years, and I don't think it can
name, many achievements," Glover said.
"The faculty could develop a different
union or practice shared governance in the
Faculty Senate."
Union deals have been completed or
are in the works at 10 Florida public uni-
versities all except UF.
"Many faculty members feel university
lay.-ers are trying to delay the commis-
sion's decision by filing a petition against a
unit that's been in place since 1976," Emery
said. "We're anxious to move on."

ACADEMICS

Classes send TAs on mad dash


ByJEFF SIRMONS
Alligator Writer
jsirmons@alligator.org
Pumping his thighs and dripping
with sweat, Damiano Bonuomo, a
French teaching assistant, dashes
through crowds of UF students on his
mountain bike with one goal in mind:
get to class on time without treading
over students.


Another kind of rush
TAs are traversing greater than
normal distances in the 15 minutes
between classes.


"If I were a real professor who wore
nice clothes, all my clothes would get
messed up pretty quick," Bonuomo
said.
Bonuomo struggles to arrive to class
on time because he, and other foreign
language TAs, teach back-to-back
classes on opposite ends of campus.
Bonuomo travels from Matherly Hall,
on the northeast edge of campus, all
the way to Mechanical and Aerospace

"Since I barely get to class on time,
I tell my students to ask questions only
on Tuesday and Thursdays, when it's a
bit easier to arrive on time (because the
class meets at Little Hall)," Bonuomo
said. "If I didn't have a bike, it wouldn't
be humanly possible to arrive to class
on time."
Language classes are scattered
throughout campus because students
prefer taking midday classes, said Rick
Ragan, assistant university registrar.
"The rooms are there, it's just a mat-
ter of utilizing them," Ragan said. "If
students went to the early morning and
late afternoon classes, there would be
more than enough classrooms in close
proximity."
The registrar grants each depart-
ment classrooms based on class size and
needs, not location. The department
then schedules classes accordingly.
"In an ideal world, there would be
more classes," said Michael Paden,
Italian program coordinator. "However,
here in the real world, there's just not
enough room to account for the mas-
sive stampede of students at UF in the
middle of the day. We have to make do
with what we have."
Other reasons classrooms are scat-
tered include daily scheduling and
requests for rooms that would accom-
modate a larger class, Paden said.
The registrar can reassign class-
rooms, Ragan said.
"Every morning, I check the registrar
Web site to see if my request for a room
change has been granted," Bonuomo
said. "If my request doesn't go through,
at least I'll get a workout."


GRU plant


plans halted

By RENAUD LAJOIE
Alligator Writer

Gainesville Regional Utilities will have to go
back to the drawing board one more time before
- it can begin designing plans to construct a new
220-megawatt coal-and-petroleum-coke-fired
electrical plant.
The Alachua County Commission agreed
with the Environmental Protection Advisory
Committee not to give GRU permission to begin
designs for the construc-
Alachua County tion of the addition after
Commission EPAC presented a list of
environmental issues it
said GRU has failed to effectively address.
EPAC is in charge of reporting to the Alachua
County Environmental Protection Department,
which concurred that important concerns re-
garding greenhouse-gas emissions, have not
been addressed effectively.
"We feel it is the wrong power plant to bring
here at this time," said David P. Harlos of the
environmental committee.
"The new boiler and generator will double
the carbon dioxide we are putting out," he said.
"These are concerns we have to address now be-
cause this will be with us for the next 50 years."
Commissioner Lee Pinkoson agreed that de-
sign planning should be postponed until Jan. 31
so that all concerns could be allayed.
However, Pinkoson also reaffirmed that the
new plant would come to fruition.

Editorial


Hope for peace

New Palestinian leader

to meet with Israeli PM
It was just one 10-minute phone call, but its ramifications
for peace in the Middle East are overwhelming.
The brief conversation yesterday between Israeli
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Mahmoud Abbas,
Palestine's recently elected president, was the first contact
made at that-level in years.
In this historic moment of goodwill, Sharon congratu-
lated Abbas on his victory in Sunday's election and the two
leaders laid some of the groundwork for a meeting in the
.near future to discuss a movement toward peace.
And peace may be within reach, as optimism is high in
the region and both Israel and Palestine may now be in. a
position to make the process work.
Sharon has assembled a government dedicated to pull-
ing the Israeli presence out of Gaza and part of the West
Bank. He went so far as to.say he will use force-against-
those who resist the efforts, and his army chief announced
he would expel any military officers or soldiers-who refuse
to participate.
Abbas, who publicly has described attacks against Israel
as a mistake, was elected by a huge margin in what seems to
be a legitimate election. Since receiving this unquestionable
mandate to rule, he has taken steps to assert his control and
further his plans for peace.
Most importantly, the leaders have made an effort to
reestablish the dialogue between the two peoples that had
been missing when former Palestinian President Yasser
Arafat was in office. Sharon, who refused to see Arafat
before his death, had not met with the former leader since
2000.
If. any viable solutions are to be found, however, both
leaders must take their first meeting seriously. If the meet-
ipg is treated merely as a publicity stunt, it will only ham-
per the impact of future efforts.
The major issue to be discussed, of course, is the reduc-
tion.of the violence and terrorist actions that have been a
constant factor in Israeli-Palestinian relations.
To that effect, Israeli leaders have expressed their in-
tent to pass control of security duties in the West Bank to
the Palestinian leadership. They will look at this and the
removal of Israeli settlements from Gaza as a chance for
Palestinian leaders to show they,can restore order and work
to eliminate terrorism.
Abbas has not acceded to actively go after violent
groups, but he has-proposed negotiations for a cease-fire.
Regardless of which method is chosen, some concrete
resolution must be agreed upon to stem the tide of deaths
from terrorist activities.
In addition to these plans, this time of cooperation
also is promising for the movement-toward establishing a
Palestinian state. The Israeli government and Palestinian
leadership have agreed to follow a U.S.-backed plan that
would lead to this goal.
Of course, none of this will come easily. After years
of relentless antagonism, Israel and Palestine will have to
commit to an intensive process of repairing relations. Their
people and leaders will have to agree to compromise on a
number of fronts and be willing to change perspectives they
thought'were eternal.
But these all are a small price to pay for peace.

SG party platforms need new goals


access denied,
After winning in a landslide with its Fall
slate, the party who pledged to open. Student
Government to all students gets told "You've failed" and
has its name spirited away.
Oh, the irony.
Has Access failed to meet its promises, though? At least
seven other parties think so.
You could look at their track record: roughly 50 percent.
But naturally, some of those failures were out of their hands.
Others, no doubt, will be converted to successes in the near
future.
There were some flubs, however. One of these was
censuring the University of North Florida's student body
president. On the eve of Florida Student Association elec-'
tions in which UNF's president was rumored to be con-
sidering a bid, the Access-dominated Senate condemned.
him for refusing to fund that school's Pride organization.
UNF's Student Senate fired back with a resolution telling
us, rightly, to butt Out of their affairs.
Access also misstepped, if vicariously, in the fight against
block tuition. While a worthy cause, the Florida Student
Association-which Access pushed to rejoin-has turned
the issue into a fight to keep the State University System
under control of the Legislature. The reasoning is the Board
of Governors would implement block tuition, whereas FSA
feels better prepared to fight it in the Legislature. That's
absurd-the SUS needs significant autonomy over tuition
to be able to properly fund itself. The relatively minor fear
of block tuition pales in comparison to keeping UF in the
fickle hands of Tallahassee.
Some goals, too, seem nigh-unwinnablre. Getting Gator
Dining to allow credit cards in the Reitz Union or to extend
dining hall hours would be an extraordinary pain for rela-


Gavin Baker tively little gain.
Speaking Out On the other hand, it'd be of great
benefit to find funding to improve
the Institute of Hispanic-Latino Cultures and Institute of
Black Culture and build an Institute of Asian and Asian-
American Culture. But unless Uncle Jamal keeps a few mil-
lion dollars rolled up in his socks, I don't see it happening in
the immediate future.
Access' platform, too, is missing a few important points.
All you other parties looking to improve your platform, this
goes for you too.
First; someone in SG needs to have the spine to stand up
against the Department of Housing's ICARUS anti-fileshar-
ing system, -which blocks access to legitimate programs.
Second, making UF more eco-friendly deserves a higher
priority than Access has given it. Increasing recycling on
campus and using biodegradable utensils in dining areas
are two goals Access hasn't accomplished but should.
Third, SG should pressure the university to untangle the
Web. A major step toward keeping students better informed
of policies, class information and activities is keeping better,
more recent and more interconnected Web sites with more
content. The syllabus for every class should be online, so we
don't have to go to the bookstore and buy them.
Finally, SG must improve itself. SG should increase the
number of seats in the Senate, trim the branches of its bu-
reaucracy, implement online voting, and provide Web sites
for the candidates so voters know more about them than
their name and party. And as Access knows, some changes
to the party system are due. The first student to register a
party name and use it should retain control over the name,.
and intentionally deceptive use of a party name should be
prohibited.

Letters to the Editor
Pill's effects go beyond contraception
Editor: For clarification of several let-
ters written over the past few days, the
morning-after pill or emergency contra-
ception (MAP-EC) operates in three ways:
it inhibits the release of an egg, prevents
sperm from reaching the.egg and changes
the lining of the uterine wall preventing
implantation of the fertilized egg. The
latter characteristic is not contraception,
'because conception has already occurred.
The zygote formed when the sperm unites
with an egg contains the 46 unique chro-
mosomes of a new human being and is the
first indication of pregnancy.
Estrogen and progesterone are the
hormones that cause the cervical mucus
to thicken and the uterine wall to thin,
both of which are opposite of the body's
physiological needs for pregnancy. Thus,
the body's normal response is altered, and
therefore, the pregnancy is terminated.
The morning-after pill, a stronger dosage
of the birth control pill, is not recommend-
ed for regular birth control use because it
Causes a significant hormonal disruption.
Pro-abortion activists were irrespon-
sible in handing out this pill on the streets
without the proper certification to admin-
ister medication. As far as I know, these
women are not licensed to teach about the
side effects of the drug, and therefore there
is no accountability if the pill is given to


someone with liver disease, hypertension,
certain cancers and other disorders that
could cause severe complications.
The terminology debate over this is-
sue begins withthe fact that conception.
is the beginning of pregnancy (as used by
gynecologists to estimate the approximate
date of delivery) and not implantation.
The MAP-EC cannot be categorized as a
contraceptive but "contra-implantation"
device, therefore terminating pregnancy,
which medically is an abortion.
S. Abrea Mitchell
Vice President, Pro-life Alliance



Pro-choice just PC term for real stance
Editor: It humors me to no end when I
hear the uproar about being labeled "pro-
abortion" by those claiming to be worried
about a woman's right to choose. In sev-
eral letters to the editor on Jan. 11, there
seemed to be panic among these concerned
citizens. If you.areagainst the murder of a
child in the womb, then you obviously will
be pro-life. What is the other option, you
might ask? To be for abortion-pro-abor-
tion. In the politically correct society we
live in, some activists have sugar-coated
the word to sound friendlier, but being
pro-choice is nothing but agreeing abor-


tion should be allowed. This issue is not
only about a woman's right to choose but
also about the child's right to live. When
those supporting abortion are called what
they actually are, they get extremely de-
fensive. I find it interesting. Why aren't
you proud to call yourself pro-abortion,
if you are?

Machen should investigate name theft
S'Editor: The action taken against the Access
Party and the thousands of students that
supported it should'be examined by the uni-
versity administration. So far, we have media
coverage that implies wrongdoing took place,
we have the director of the Student Activities
Center-my esteemed Board of Managers,
colleague Lohse Beeland-stating that "name-
claming by non-party members often has
happened in years past," and, to top it off, the
Access Party currently is in complete control
of the Executive Branch and has a significant
number of party-loyal senators as well. I be-'
lieve this person, unworthy to have his name
included in my letter, is in clear violation of the
Honor Code that holds all of us to the highest
standards of integrity and honesty.
It is for this reaon I would like to make a


formal request to President Bernie Machen
to verify, through the expansive resources of
his office, whether or not the faculty advisor
of this "new" Access Party was fully aware
of what he or she was signing in support of;
make sure Michael Shine at no point in time
provided false or misleading information
about his relationship with the party; and de-
termine whether or not, in light of the actual
ramifications, the adviser is at all interested in
retracting their support. I am making this re-
quest to President Machen in the newspaper
that reaches every student, because it is hot
a personal request-it is a request on behalf
of thousands of my fellow students. As an:
elected representative of the student body,
I feel it would be highly improper of me to
contact this officer with these concerns, so I
am asking that your office take the appropri-
ate action.
In closing, I would just like to say that
this semester I have re-registered the Voice
Party and, despite the possibility that we
may run candidates in this election, I hope
all parties-be they Ignite, the Gator Party,
Keg, etc.-and potential candidates like
Joe Goldberg and Jared Hemandez will be
opposed to what's been done to the Access
Party and will weigh in. Winning may be
important, but honesty and integrity should
still count for something.

Accent awaits $30K more to meet student demand

Smaller student organizations
seeking both money and support
to help bring top-notch speakers to
UF are one step closer to receiving
the assistance they need.
An extra $30,000 to allow
Accent, UF's speakers bureau, to
co-sponsor campus speakers ini-
tially was approved on first read-


ing by the Student Senate Tuesday
night.
"The demand on campus for
speakers has grown exponen-
tially," Accent Chairman David
Buchalter said.
The money, which would come
from Student Government re-
serves, is needed to allow Accent
to fund commitments they already
have made with other student
groups and work with organiza-
tions that don't have as much
experience bringing prominent
speakers to UF, said Lohse Beeland,
director of Student Activities.

he said.

he doubted Congress would make

said.

of lack of time. Along with the hurricanes last
year and new dieting trends, it has put a bur-
den on Florida's $9 billion citrus industry
Compared to the 2003-04 growing sea-
son, this year's orange crop is 30 percent
smaller, and the grapethuit crop is 68 percent


smaller, according to the Citrus Researchdand
Education Center in Lake Alfred, the world's
largest citrus research facility.
Center spokesman Andrew Meadows said
dieting trends did not help matters either .
"I don't eat breakfast because I'm
too busy. At most, I'll grab a bagel
to go."
Ashley Jones
UF sophomore

"We did a recent stludv that show \ lo\\ -carb
diets ha\e had a direct impact on 01 consump-
tion," Meadows said.
However, recent ads have shown sunshine
on the horizon for citrus growers.
"We have launched an advertising cam--


paign that the industry has come behind,.
and the, decline has slowed significantly."
Meadows said. "What they advertiserr') are
basically doing is reminding conrutmers to
start their da\ right and Ithatll orange juice is
traditionally\ part of breakfast
"The nutrients in orange juice are too im-
portant to niss," he said 'The potassium in
the orange encourages heart health. while the
Vitamin C aids 'the iunmune system and the
folic acid prevents birth detects lin the brain
and spinal cord)."
Within the UF student body, there are
various positions on the importance of the
'first meal of the day.
"I don't eat breakfast. because Im too
busy," UF sophomore Ashley Jones said. "At
most, I'll grab a bagel to go."
There is also the other extreme.
"I have a.nice oily breakfast when I can


with salt and pepper on the eggs and a side
of grease with the bacon," English junior Dan
Oney said. "I have a glass of OJ or milk when I
can, but if not, I have a soda or a beer."
Adults w\ho do int eat breakfast are four
times more likely to be obese, said Gail C.
Rampersaud. assistant in nutrition research
and education for the UF Food Science and
HumanNutrition Department and member of
America's Breakfast Council.
"Breakfast is just an important part of a
health\ lifes-t-le," said Rampersaud, who is
al-o a registered dietician "It's just like getting
a jump start on your day."
Rampersaud recommends students keep
healthy foods regularly available at home to
avoid the temptation of fast food. She recom-
mends low-fat yogurt, a bagel with low-fat
cream cheese and "100 percent orange juice"
to start off the morning.

react to


new prime

minister
By STEVE SPECHT
Alligator Writer

What will happen now that the
deceased Yasser Arafat has been
replaced by Mahmoud Abbas
as president of the Palestinian
Authority on Monday? The re-
sponse depends on who is answer-
ing.
Gators for Israel, an. organiza-
tion concerned with Israeli issues
and the nation's right to exist, is
optimistic about Abbas' ability to
bring peace to a region that has
seen continuing violence since
Israel was founded in 1948.
President Britt Tevis said
Abbas is a much more moderate
leader, who already has called for
the end to the ongoing conflict
known as the Al-Aqsa Intifada,
and she is looking forward to
seeing how Israeli Prime Minister
Ariel Sharon and Abbas will work
for peace.
"Sharon actually called Abbas
after the election," she said, citing-
the congratulatory telephone call
to Abbas 'on Tuesday.
This is a
step away from
Sharon's at-
titudes toward
_4i Arafat, whom he
called an arch-
terrorist.
"I think. hav-
Arafat
ing an optimistic
attitude will propel the peace pro-
cess," she said.
However, not everyone shares
her positive outlook.
Nakba '48, an organization
striving to create awareness of the
situation of the Palestinian-people,
is wary of the new president and
still worries about what is in store
for the region.
Stephanie Bendeck, president
of Nakba '48, argues that no matter
who was elected, the same prob-
lems exist.
"I don't know if .[Abbas is] go-
ing to be that much better," she
said. "I'd like to think that he'll
make a difference, but a lot of that
has to be reflected on the Israeli
side."
Bendeck also is concerned
-Palestinian refugees were not rep-
resented in the election as a result
of their low-voter turnout caused
by travel restrictions imposed by
Israel. Abbas won the Palestinian
election with 62.3 percent of the
vote, according to The Associated
Press.
President Bush also expressed
willingness to work with the new
president, extending an invita-
tion for Abbas to visit the White
House.

Parker pleads not guilty in first court appearance


By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

Major Parker, a former UF men's bas-
ketball team captain and assistant to Coach
Billy Donovan, made his first appearance in
federal court Tuesday.
Before Federal Magistrate Alan Komblum
at the Federal Courthouse in Gainesville,
Parker pleaded not guilty to one count of
conspiracy to distribute and possession with
the intent to distribute more than 500 grams
of cocaine, three counts of distributing co-
caine and one count of distributing and pos-
sessing with the intent to distribute cocaine.
According to court documents, the


charges stem from sales of cocaine to an
undercover Gainesville Police'Department
officer on multiple dates from Nov. 1 to Dec.
7, when Parker was arrested.
Korblum issued a Feb. 14 trial for Parker
to begin at 8:30 a.m.
Following his appearance, Parker, who
was free on $100,000 bond, received pre-trial
release and was allowed to leave accompa-
nied by his wife, father and sister.
While Parker must obtain clearance from
a supervising officer to leave the area, his
attorney, John Stokes, said his, client has no
intention of returning to his hometown of
Fort Lauderdale.
'Major Parker has no plans right now to
change his life in any \way\ other than to fully


comply iw\ith the court orders, to review the
discovery in his case, to prepare his case
for resolution, whatever that'may be, and
to continue to lead-a very
Valuable and productive
'' life," Stokes said.
Jerry Sanford, spokes-
1 ,' man for the U.S. Attorney
'in Gainesville, said the
L 3 charges of possession
v, ith intent to distribute
Parker carry a penalty of five to
40 %ears in prison. while
the remauunig Count- carry anywhere from
one to 20 years. In addition, Komblum said
Parker could be fined up to $2 million for
each of the posse-ssion with intent to dis-
tribute charges and $1 million each for the


other three.
Stokes reserved comment on the pos-
sibility of Parker receiving a plea deal and
declined to discuss facts of the case while
evidence is being reviewed.
Stokes, however, said that Parkerg spirit
remains high.
"[Parker] has very positive mindset,"
Stokes said. "He's looking toward the fu-
ture, resolving this case and getting on with
his life.
"I'm confident when the evidence comes
out, and everything is heard in this case that
Major Parker will one day be able t6 get on
with his life," Stokes said. "This will be a
disappointing memory, but one that he can
still mo\ e on and hai e an extremely produc-
tive life."

Samantha Lutz, a sophomore

Freshmen face fierce SEC road
By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

Al H-orford is accustomed to hostile
crowds.
As a senior in high school, UF's
freshman starting center was berated
by opposing fans.
"When I committed [to UF] in
high school, they did the Florida State
chant," Horford said with a smile. "In
every away game, they had the stu-
dent section do the Florida State chant.
They even played the song, actually."
While Horford may have received
abuse from -high. school kids and
played in front of relatively large
croc. ds a, an EA Sportz All-Star. he has
)e t to ,pcriennc hlif on tl road in the
Southeast rn Conf ,rence
"Auburn is a difficult team-
to guard because they have
the ability to shoot the three.
And. not only do they shoot
the three, but they have guys
on the perimeter who can
put the ball on the floor and
drive to the basket."?
Billy Donovan
UF men's oasketbali coach


At 8 p.m., the Gators (9-3, 1-0 SEC)

road game of the season.

The Gator- ha e been on the oppos--
ing side of a roaring crov d once this
season, and it didn't go well for them.
Just 10 days ago; UT uttered a 13-
point loss to Florida State in its first
road game of the season. Horford and
other Gators, however, believe they've
learned from the incident.
"I think it definitely is a wake-up
call," senior forward David Led said.
Lee said he thinks that before the
FSU game, the young players didn't
really understand how daunting a
collegiate road game can be, primar-
ily due to UF-friendly crowds in
Miami and Jacksonville the sites of
UF's only previous games outside of
Gainesville.
"I hate to say this, but it could've
been a great learning experience for
our team," Lee said.
But Coach Billy Donovan hopes
that his team not only has learned to
overcome a foreign crowd but also to
defend the perimeter.
Before the Arkansas game

percent of their three-point shots
against UF.
Against FSU, the Gators allowed
the Seminoles to shoot 60 percent
from three-point territory.
But the Gators improved their
perimeter defense against the
Razorbacks, allowing a 38.9-percent
mark from beyond the arc.
Dono~ an hopes his team continues
that impro\ v-ment against smaller but
quick and sharp-shooting Auburn.
"Auburn is a difficult team to guard
because they have the ability to _hoot
the three," Donovan said. '-.nd not
only do they shoot the three, but they
have guys on the perimeter who can
put the ball on the floor and drive to
the basket."


"No, but that might be the way to
go. [We could] go grab some kids
from Turllngton and put them in
the stands."
David Lee
UF forward, on whether the Gators
simulate crowd noise in practice


The Tigers (9-5, 0-1 SEC) have a
lineup featuring one player taller than
6-foot-6, compared to UF's seven,
but also two of the SEC's top scor-
ers. Freshman 6-foot-1 guard Toney
Douglas is tied with Mississippi State
forward Lawrence Roberts, averaging
a league-best 18.8 points per game.
Donovan wants his team to be pa-
tient and use its size and physical ad-
vantage like it did against Arkansas.
"We have got to balance between
inside-and outside [shooting] in this
basketball game," Donovan said. "I
don't think we want to get into a situ-
ation where we want to match them
three-point shot to three-point shot,
because they have a lot more three-
point shooters than we do."

Forgotten shooter


must regain touch
His contagious eyes and goofy smile make him
"da bomb" with the girls.
Now it's time for his game to make him a
permanent hit with the guys.
It's time for Lee to lead the Gators' charge. It's time
for Lee to be the replacement piece to a UF puzzle that
misses Matt Walsh.
And I'm not talking about David Lee here. David
already understands he needs to be taking mismatched
Southeastern Conference defenders to school. This is
about Lee Humphrey.
This is about a shooter who is a man, but looks like a
boly ind play somewhere in between on the court.
Monday, Billy D made a shocking, but somewhat
true statement: when Walsh returns later this season, he
won't be the same player because of lo-t conditioning.
That's where Humphrey
"'" .- f comes in. But he can't -ha\. up
when Walsh does.
That would be no better
,k than hoppiig o'n Kobe Tyrant's
.-'ricd and black sport bike for
a ride to the NBA title- you
Louis don't want Kobe behind you on
AnastasiS the back seat and you L1 never
Louis in the Bullpen get there anyway.'
I.r. :if z,@alligator.org No, Humphrey must face
the flames .tarting tonight
against A-uburn He ha. to. because no one else can re-
place i. hat \Val-h contributtedto the Gator. hi both stats
and i ins. David can get you the points and rebounds,
but onli, Humphrey can compensate for \\.1l-sh three-
potntEis and perimeter defense. And the Fab Five
ht-reimen have already turned in a better genuine per-
tormance on the court than Chris \\ebbtr and Juwan.
Hoi\ard have ingenuously done in court. Mohamed

SHumphrey is the only experienced player capable of
patching UF's wounds. And if you question his ability
to do so, he'll tell you otherwise.
Htuiphr plu ,.ill tell you about last season, when
des pite failing to play more than nine minutes in any
of the first four games he thrived as a starter after
Christian Liar bolted for the "La Tomatina" festivities
in Spain. Humphrey will show you highlights of his
buzzer-beating Crimson Blood-letting shot that downed
Alabama in the SEC Tournament. Then Humphrey will
argue with math: the Gators are 9-3 when he makes at
least two three-pointers in a game and 9-3 in SEC games
in which Humphrey plays at least 20 minutes.
This season, the Tennessee country boy with the soft
touch has been off to a slow start. But he's getting there.
Humphrey combined for six threes and eight assists
against the Semen-oles and the Taterbacks.
But if the Gators are going to tread water without
Walsh, Humphrey has to be even better. C'mon Lee.
Show us you can do it. Show us you can ball.
Show us there's so much more to see than the eyes
and the smile.
