STUDENT GOVERNMENT


SG in name game


By BRIDGET CAREY
Alligator Writer
bcarey@alligator.org

Unexpected filings are causing
concern among past party lead-
ers as four familiar names have
been registered for the upcoming
Spring Student Government elec-
tion and the old bosses are not
the ones at the helms.
Paperwork has been submitted
to register the Student Alliance,
Ignite, Keg and Access parties,
but the students who filed the pa-
perwork are said to either have no
affiliation with the original parties
or no authorization from previous
party leaders before claiming
ownership. Except for the Access
Party, the other names have yet to
be approved.
Florida Blue Key member
Pedro "Peter" Allende registered
as the Ignite Party president.
Former Student Body President
and Ignite founder Nikki Fried
said Allende had no previous as-
sociation with the party.
Fried said she hopes Allende
doesn't spread the message he
is related to the previous Ignite
.Party because "that would be a
misrepresentation of the party
because he was not an elected


official."
Allende could not be rt~ched
for comment. Darren G.ldm.an.'
who applied for Ignite Party
treasurer, did not return calls or
an e-mail.
Allende i\.ai pr od ucer of 2003's

replacement student senator for a

"We recycle parties like we re-
cycle aluminum cans," Fried said.

tions.

Court finds sentencing guidelines unconstitutional


Ruling's effect on Florida unknown


By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
Alligator Writer

Wednesday's Supreme Court decision
rendering current sentencing guidelines
within the federal court system unconstitu-
tional surprised law-makers and breakers
across the nation.
Criminal defense attorney Larry Turner,
who also is a former judge within the Eighth
Judicial Circuit that includes Alachua County,
said he believes the ruling is long overdue.
"In effect, the decisions stand for several
different propositions," Turner said. "One
proposition is that juries, not judges, deter-
mine guilt and innocence .... in imposing sen-
tences, a judge cannot increase a sentence by

making findings that the jury didn't make."
The ruling i a n h.nded d,:lwn in n\ o parts
by the divided court The -irst part found cur-
rent federal sentencing guidelines violate the
Sixth Amendment by al lo\. ing ludgets to im-
pose harsher sentences after a jury's verdict.
However, the second part allows for
judges to continue to use the guidelines as
an advisory tool instead of mandatory proce-
dure. An appeals court may overturn verdicts
made under the guidelines if they're found to
be unreasonable. Some 60,000 defendants per
year have been sentenced under the guide-
lines, according to the Associated Press.
The two-decade-old guidelines were set
by Congress in order to standardize sentenc-
ing for similar offenses.

But according to many defense attor-
neys, including federal and state criminal
defense attorney Rob Griscti, such mea-
sures proved counterproductive by failing
to allow judges to consider extenuating
circumstances. As a result, many inmates
of the federal prison system may have
received overly harsh pun-
ishments.
Fed al "The sentencing guide-
-~-** lines had become, from a
defense lawyer's stand-
point, often an unfair appli-
cation because they give the judge so little
discretion to make decisions when there
are circumstances that warrant litigation,"
Griscti said.

in the air. Judges must adhere to Florida's
guidelines, which determine minimum and
maximum sentences for criminal offenses.
However,.there could be problems if the
courts decide to adopt the federal guide-
lines, UF law professor Fletcher N. Baldwin
said.
"I would assume that [the Florida
Supreme Court] would have to follow this
case, and it's going to create a little bit of
havoc," Balciad nn said.
Turner said he suspects the minimum
sentencing "mandatories" could be done
away with in state court.
No matter what happens, however, it
is going to take some time for federal and
state courts to sort out the rulings and their
implications, he said.
"These are new decisions, major deci-
sions," Turner said.

Going Greek


One recruit's Rush story


By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
kcraig@alligator.org

Matt Metz is a wanted man on
campus.
The UF freshman has spent
the past week being bombarded
with phone calls from people he
barely knows asking him to hang
out and party with them.
They've been begging for his
friendship, telling him what a
great guy they think he is, and
most importantly, offering him
amazing free food.
Metz, 19, became this popular
because he decided to participate
in the Interfraternity Council's
Rush Week.
As he toured the fraternity
houses during rush with the
Alligator in tow he learned
what each fraternity had to offer
before making his final decision
Thursday.

A.change of heart
Metz said he "was almost
staunchly against getting into a
fraternity," when he arrived at
UF in the Fall, which gives him
the ability to relate to the 86 per-
cent of UF students who aren't
active in Greek life.
He also possesses quite a
few notable characteristics. He's
good-looking and in-shape, out-
going, friendly and seems like
he would be able to pull in some
major chicks.
In Metz's first few days ex-
periencing rush, it became clear
there are two distinct methods
fraternities use to lure in the ner-
vous crowd of rushees.
There's the laid back hey-let's-
hang-out-and-be-buds approach,
and the come-look-at-our-crazy-
fight-nights-and-hot-chicks ap-
proach.
Some fraternities manage to


fit in the hot chicks without host-
ing big events, but the two seem-
ingly go hand-in-hand.
Metz started his week with an
open mind about which frater-
nity he might want to join.

A walk along 'Frat Row'
Each house on Fraternity Row,
and even those located "off-row,"
gave off a distinct vibe.
There was Lambda Chi Alpha,
which hosted a jousting event
Monday night and flaunted cute
girls who signed in rushees.
Farther down the road was a
more unstructured house, where
a tiki torch had been broken in
half and thrown into the bushes.
Brothers in the front lawn started
yelling "Eat it! Eat it!"
Then, there was a standout
presentation at Pi Kappa Alpha.
One attention-getter when en-
tering the house was the black
Hummer parked in front.
But the ride paled in com-
parison to the Hooters girls at the
front doors-
'Each house hosts lunch and
dinner every day during rush.
While most fraternities have
their food catered, Pi Kappa
Alpha was the only house Metz
checked out that had restaurant
employees mingling with frater-
nity hopefuls.

The 'final cut'
.Finally came the three fra-
ternity houses that drew Metz
in the most Sigma Alpha
Epsilon, Sigma Chi and Beta
Theta Pi.
While most of the fraterni-
ties offered the same basics:.an
introduction to a few members,
a tour of the house and a semi-
scripted speech on what the fra-
ternity has to offer, Metz said he
narrowed it down to these three
because of their laid-back ap-

Concert ticket


sales for Snoop


off to slow start

NEIL HUGHES
Alligator Writer
nhughes@alligator.org

Tickets for multiplatinum rap artist Snoop Dogg's Feb. 4 show
at the O'Connell Center are selling slower than some may have
expected.
As. of Thursday morning, approximately 2,200 tickets to
the show had been sold, with,approximately 1,500 sold to UF
students, said.Darius Dunn, associate director of the O'Connell
Center.
Comparatively, the initial run of almost 5,500 tickets for the
Dave Matthews Band sold out in only 92 minutes in September.
Jeff Yeatman, chairman of Student Government Productions,
said he was not concerned about the sales, and said he consid-
ered it unfair to compare the Dave Matthews concert to Snoop.
Dogg.
"Dave Matthews has a completely different kind of crowd,
and I feel like those ticket buyers buy their tickets immediately,"
Yeatman said. "There were also two other headlining acts at-
tached to it. That wasn't my expectation for this show for it to
sell out in two hours."
Yeatman added that while he does not expect the show to sell
out, he will not rule it out as a possibility.
The layout for the event has not been finalized, but the ca-
pacity will be somewhere between 8,000 and 10,000, Dunn said.
Tickets are $25 for the general public and $15 for UF students.
Snoop is touring in support of his new album "R&G (Rhythm
& Gangsta): The Masterpiece." The show is his first stop in
Gainesville since 2001, when he sold approunately 8,000 tickets
to a sell-out crowd at the O'Connell Center, Dunn said..
"We've sold more tickets than we sold for W, cilt T.i-an la]st
year," Yeatman said. "Tickets have only been on sale for five
days."
The concert is co-sponsored by SGP and the Black Student
Union as part of Black History Month celebrations.
Ticket sales may yet pick up, Yeatman said, thanks to advertis-
ing around the state.
"It will be advertised in Orlando and Jacksonville, both in
print and on radio," he said.
Regardless, Yeatman said students he has talked to are excited
about the upcoming concert.
"Reactions have all been positive," he said. "He's a huge
name to be coming to this town, so it should be a fun show."

County may get more hurricane aid


Several FEMA projects involve UF


By SKYLER SMITH
Alligator Writer


D-epite recent allegations of finan-
cial iiisappprpriatiion by the Federal
Emergency Management Agency,
necessary funds won't be withheld in
Alachua County, according to the local
Office of Emergency Management.
In fact, despite the recent reports of
mismanagement, Alachua County may
be getting more hurricane-relief fund-
ing soon.
The county has received hurricane--
related FEMA funds but will be apply-
ing for $3.5 million more, said David
Donnelly, assistant director at the emer-
gency management office.
Alachua County was hit by two hur-
ricanes, Frances and Jeanne, during the
2004 season.
Donnelly said that while the county
is not yet "at 100 percent," there are.


only a few damaged houses left from
the particularly tumultuous season.
"I think FEMA has done pretty well
by Alachua County," Donnelly said of
the millions in immediate relief money
that poured into the county last fall.
Donnelly heads the county mitiga-
tion strategy group, which applies for
and appropriates FEMA money to fund
projects within Alachua County.
There are several projects from UF
before the group, said Glenn Ketcham,
who works in the UF Division of
Environmental Health and Safety.
The most important project is rein-
forcing the windows in Bryant Hall,
where the UF computer mainframe is
housed, according to Ketcham.
Other projects the FEMA money
possibly could fund would be flood
protection for the buildings near Lake
Alice, making Southwest Recreation
Center a sturdier hurricane shelter
and moving broadcast power lines at


Weimer Hall underground.
Ketcham said a decision would be
made by March.
FEMA is suspected of misspending
millions, of dollars of hurricane-relief fi-
nancing, filing claims in areas virtually
unaffected by the storms.
"I think FEMA has done pretty
well by Alachua County."
David Donnelly
FEMA emergency office
assistant director

The allegations concerning fraudu-
lent FEMA requisitions for aid money
prompted U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla.,
to request an investigationby the Senate
Committee on Homeland Security and
Government Affairs.
FEMA is also under scrutiny from
the House Subcommittee on Economic
Development, Public Buildings and
Emergency Management, another
overseer of FEMA.


New findings pump life into causes of age, heart disease


* THE TEAM'S FINDINGS AFFECT

UF researchers have taken the first big step
in slowing aging of the heart.
The study found that in the heart muscle,

Biochemistry of Aging Laboratory in UF's
College of Health and Human Performance,


has been studying aging for about 10 years
and headed up the research leading to these
findings, which were published in an online
journal Jan. 10.
"Heart disease and hart attacks are
caused in part by the aging of the heart,"
Leeuwenburgh said. "They are'both very
complex, but the mitochondrial breakdown
plays a huge part."
Each year, an estimated 17 million people
-die from heart disease, according to the World
Health Organization, and it is the lading
cause of death in the United States.
The mitochondria affected by aging are
found deep in the muscle fibers of the heart
and are important because they provide ener-


gy and help with heart contractions that keep
blood flowing and keep cells alive.
The mitochondrial breakdown is caused
by free radicals, which come from inflamma-
tion of the muscles in the body along with
other factors. In a young,
UF healthy heart, free radicals
Research are not a problem because
they are broken down. by
antioxidants.
As the heart ages, the body's natural anti-
oxidants are no match for the increasing free
radicals.
Leeuwenburgh compares these free
radicals to garbage floating around the heart,
,lowing the encie', procii ;


"If there is a lot of junk around, the heart
won't function as well to produce energy," he
said.
"But, just like the garbage man needs ener-
gy to take out the trash, the heart needs energy
to remove its junk."
Now that Leeuwenburgh has discovered
the cause of the heart's aging, the next step is
to work toward slowing, repairing and even-
tually stopping the damage.
Increasing antioxidants has not been found
to be helpful,.and research now is being done
on how to halt the increased production of free
radicals accompanying aging, how to remove
the damaged mitochondria, and how to in-
crease the number of healthy mitochondria.

Assault inquest ongoing


By EVA KIS
Alligator Staff Writer

An allegation of sexual assault made
against a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon
fraternity last September remains under
investigation.
Since the matter remains unresolved,
University Police Department spokesman
Lt. Joe Sharkey could not comment on its
progress.
"There's really not a whole lot until the
case is concluded on our part," Sharkey said.
The fraternity voluntarily placed itself un-
der social probation following the complaint,
filed by a female. minor against one of its
members, last Fall.
Sigma Phi Epsilon- President Chris
Bucciarelli said the self-imposed probation
remains in effect.
"The reason why we put ourselves on
suspension is that we wanted to make sure
we were as compliant as possible with every-
one in the situation to find out what really
happened," Bucciarelli said.
The fraternity also took action against its
accused member.
"He has been suspended indefinitely, and
he is no longer here," Bucciarelli said.
Specifics of the fraternity's probation are a
university matter, Sharkey said.
"As far as sanctions go against the frater-
nity itself, that's a university issue," Sharkey
said.


Cyrus Williams, UF's director of student
judicial affairs, could not be reached for com-
ment on the matter.
According to reports, the victim arrived at
the Sigma Phi Epsilon house around 9 p.m.
for a Homecoming party with the accused
fraternity member as her date. He had mixed
drinks for them, including Smirnoff rasp-
berry vodka, prior to their arrival.
The victim, 17 years old at the time, said
she did not watch her date make the drinks
and tool additiin.l shots
in the house.
The victim woke up
naked in bed next to her
date, who told her they
had kissed but nothing
more, reports state.
Drug suspicions arose
Wiliams when the victim, who re-
ports to be a light sleeper. slept through four
phone calls after she went to bed that night.
After waking up in pain and undergoing
an e,.aimination at Shands at AGH, injuries
consistent with sexual, assault were noted,
according to reports.
The victim filed the complaint on Sept.
27 but asked that the investigation be halted
a few days later. However, less than two
weeks afterward, the-investigation was re-
opened, again at the victim's request, though
no -charges were filed against the accused
member.


Exercise may aid patients


By ALICIA PEREZ -
Alligator Contributing Writer

A new UF study shows people who
suffer from the degenerative disease
.multiple sclerosis can reduce their level
of fatigue through strength training.
"This is the first published report
using a conventional weight-training
program for patients with multiple scle-
rosis," said Lesley-White, a professor
in UF's department of applied physiol-
ogy and kinesiology. "We designed an
exercise program to develop muscle
strength because multiple sclerosis
causes muscle weakness and fatigue,
which contributes to a declining cycle
of fitness, loss of mobility and decreased
quality of life."
The study provides preliminary data
for controlling deterioration of muscles
and their function among MS patients,
White said.
The study, which included up to 30
minutes of supervised weight training
twice weekly for eight weeks, concen-
trating on the legs, abdomen and lower
back, increased participants' strength,
thereby decreasing- their exhaustion.
Fatigue is the most common symptom
of MS.
Although there is no known cure.for


MS, this study gives people suffering
from the muscle-deteriorating disease a
chance to gain control of their illness.
Stella Sarkees, a participant in
White's pilot study, was diagnosed with
MS at age 25, when an attack left her
temporarily paralyzed.
"I was very scared immobilized
and depressed. It was a depression that
you cannot imagine," she said in a-press
release.
After eight weeks in the. program,
Sarkees noticed an improvement in her
walking and was able to stop taking
medication for muscle
UP spasms.
q~R 1A.3r Although improv-
Sing muscle strength
is its main benefit, Sarkees said weight
training gives MS patients another
less obvious but equally important
advantage the feeling of being more
powerful.
Feeling empowered keeps the focus
on something other than the depression,
the illness and the situation, Sarkees
said in a press release.
"Strength training helps multiple
sclerosis patients to maintain muscle
function," White said. "It helps them re-
main active and minimize deterioration
in muscle mass."

Editorial
Here at the Department of Darts & Laurels, we believe ev-
erything happens for a reason.
It doesn't strike us as coincidence when a flier for the morn-
ing-after pill appears in the Alligator as soon as a debate erupts
about it on our pages.
Obviously, that was a sign we haven't spent enough time
stirring up trouble.
We just smile and nod our heads when an elderly
Presbyterian minister's .last words were, "And when I go to
heaven ..." as he died mid-sentence in'a sermon this week in
Oviedo.
You know you've been living right when you get to pass
away on an ellipsis.
We even aren't surprised when Gainesville's Blockbuster
stores -decide not to honor the corporation's new no-late-fees
policy
This tells us that sometimes we have to learn when to put
down the remote and actually get some work done.
But then we remember we're Gators and go buy the DVD.
So while we sit down for a marathon of "Fight Club" and
"Friends" in remembrance of Brad and Jen, tune into this
week's edition of...

Editor: What a happy new year it must be
for Evan and his natural mother and father.
Amanda Hopkins and Stephen White Jr. have
fought long and hard for their son, and it is a
relief to see Evan returning home. Dawn and
Gene Scott may have raised him for three
years, but they did so knowing Evan was
much loved and wanted by his parents. Had
they truly cared about his best interests, they
would not have sought custody once Evan's

I am certain that Evan, like Anna Schmidt

be just fine once this whole mess is resolved.
Though our adoption-happy culture may be
loathe to admit it, they are very fortunate to

Democratic Party merely reorganizing
Editor: In her column Thursday, Allison
Cullin basked in the Republican victories of the
past three years while arrogantly advising the
Democratic Party of its need for strong leader-


ship and a clear message. Cullin has forgotten
U.S. history is a cycle of changing majorities
and that, until two years ago, the Democrats
enjoyed a 40-year majority in Congress. The
Republican Party underwent extensive reor-
ganization after the Nixon debacle. Nowit is
the Democrats' turn to reorganize.
In what direction should the party head?
Cullin warns against the liberalization of
the Democratic Party. I remind her that in
the 2004 presidential election, 48 percent of
this country's electorate voted for a liberal
Massachusetts senator. I would proffer that the
Democrats lost the 2004 election not because,
"the culture of America has changed, but the
party has failed to change with it," as Cullin
Asserts, but rather because the Republicans did
a much better job on the strategy front. They


mobilized their supporters better than the
Democrats, and the Democrats failed to high-
light the failures of the Bush administration.
As. the Republican Party moves further to
the right, I encourage the Democratic Party
to preserve its values. Rather than become
Republican-lite, I encourage them to be the
voice of those who do not support ill-planned
wars fought under false pretenses, of those
who believe in equal treatment under the law
regardless of sexual preference, of those who
support evidence-based science and environ-
mental policy, and of those who support a
return to fiscal responsibility. Democrats do
not need to change their message; they need
to better express it.

VP resigns SFCC


* NANCEE BAILEY GOES
AFTER JUST SIX MONTHS.

By SKYLER SMITH
Alligator Writer
The tenure of Santa Fe
Community College's newest
vice president did not last long.
Nancee Bailey, who joined the
college in July as vice president
for Academic Affairs, abruptly
resigned Sunday.
Neither her resignation letter
nor SFCC spokesman Larry Keen
cited a reason for her sudden de-
parture.
Bailey was hired from
Daytona Beach Community
College in July to head the larg-
est of SFCC's six divisions. As
head of Academic Affairs, Bailey
controlled roughly 80 percent of
the budget, Keen said.
Last Fall, she proposed a
reorganization of personnel and
departments that met with dis-
approval from some faculty.
At a November meeting of
the College Senate, the group
that represents SFCC faculty,
several members contested the
college-wide overhaul because


members said they were not con-
sulted about the changes and the
implementation was too broad.
The decision was made to
delay discussions until January
so the entire college community
could have input in the restruc-
turing.
The update on her progress
should have been made public at
the College Senate meeting held
Tuesday, but with her departure
the plan was scrapped.
"I don't think anyone takes
any delight in someone com-
ing in and then leaving in six
months," Keen said, when asked
about the college community's
reaction.
He said her unpopular plan
to reorganize SFCC was not the
reason for her departure.
"When somebody cuts their
ties so quickly, that's their deci-
sion," Keen said.
.Bailey will be continuing to
work at SFCC as a consultant
in the workforce development
division until June 30, said Keen,
although she has moved out of
her on-campus office.
Her replacement will likely
be-announced next Spring, Keen
said.

TALLAHASSEE

Faculty want chiropractic adjustment


By JAMES VANLANDINGHAM
Alligator Staff Writer
jvanl@alligator.org

TALLAHASSEE The FSU Board of
Trustees will decide today whether to endorse
the construction of a proposed chiropractic
school, one day after FSU faculty spoke out
about their concerns with the plan.
At a faculty meeting Thursday, FSU pro-
vost Larry Abele said there were benefits and
drawbacks to the proposed program.
Chief among his concerns was that FSU's
academic reputation and that of its science
degrees could be damaged if the school
awards degrees in chiropractics due to public
perception that it is illegitimate science.
Abele said that if the program were
implemented, it would have to distance itself
from the kind of "vaguely defined practices
in chiropractic about a vague power source
somewhere," the idea that readjusting the


spine can cure all diseases by channeling the
body's life force properly.
Mocking the proposal, FSU faculty mem-
bers circulated a map comparing chiroprac-
tics to astrology and UFO abduction studies.
On the other hand, Abele said, a recent
British study found spinal manipulation,
a chiropractic method, was often cheaper
and more helpful to patients than standard
medical treatments. In taking the lead in
science-based chiropractic education, FSU
could blaze a trail in identifying the scientific
benefits of chiropractic therapy, Abele said.
That trail would be carved through
uncharted territory. Since 1910, no public
research university in North America has
offered chiropractics as a scientific program,
and that is enough for those who have
mounted opposition to the proposed school.
On Jan. 4, the board of the Capital Medical
Society, which represents more than 500
Tallahassee-area doctors, voted unanimously

to oppose the school.
On Dec. 29, the St. Petersburg Times re-
ported that at least seven professors at the
FSU medical school threatened to resign if
the chiropractic school were approved.
And on Wednesday, Florida Senate
President Tom Lee (R-Brandon) said he was
concerned that politicians inappropriately
were trying to influence the FSU Board of
Trustees and the state Board of Governors
into approving the chiropractic school plan.
Lee proposed to ban lobbyists from serv-
ing on such boards in the future and said he
would like to de-politicize the boards, which
he said have been packed with political pa-
trons of powerful politicians.
Such a measure would prevent John
Thrasher, a former Florida House speaker
and a current lobbyist, from being re-con-
firmed in his position as chairman of the FSU
Board of Trustees when his term expires.
That board is widely expected to endorse
the proposed school today over its own fac-
ulty's objections, in part because of political
pressure from allies of former House Speaker
Johnnie Byrd and former Senate President
Jim King (R Jacksonville).
Those leaders rushed through a bill in the
last minutes of the 2004 legislative session
to funnel $9 million in annual funding from
state liquor taxes to the school forever, and
without further legislative oversight.
The legislation was spearheaded by Sen.
Dennis Jones (R-Treasure Island), a King ally
who is himself a practicing chiropractor. King
told the St. Petersburg Times Jan. 3 that if FSU
refused to build the school, "the Legislature
would be angry."
The university might have to cut funding
in its other departments to return the $9 mil-
lion the Legislature originally allocated for
the chiropractic school, King said.
As for UF's take on the FSU chiroprac-
tic plan, Tom Fortner, spokesman for UF's
Health Science Center, said the interest of
UF's medical community is that there be a
well organized and thoughtful process to
determine if this or any other new program
is truly needed.
"We think all of Florida's public higher
education would benefit from that," he said.


Suicide

The Alachua County Jail had not
had a suicide since August 1999 un-

robbery suspect took his own life.
SUnfortunately, this was not the
first time recently an inmate has
made an attempt.
Since July, the mental-health
area of the jail has had four suicide
attempts when inmates tried to
utilize a 10-foot tier
Public drop to take their own
Safety lives, Alachua County
Sheriff's Office spokes-
man Jim Troiano said.
"We were able to thwart them all
... while they were in the process of
happening," Troiano said.
Detention staff aims to -avoid
this type of situation by putting
each inmate through an extensive
screening process that begins with
the arresting officer and ends with
a professional medical clinician,
Troiano said.
Prior to this string of suicide
attempts, Alachua County Sheriff
Steve Oelrich requested in April a
$26,000 barrier be installed in the
mental-health area to block inmates
from utilizing the tier drop to hurt
themselves, Troiano said.
He confirmed the Alachua
County Commission has agreed to
allot funds to. purchase the barrier.
Detention staff members are await-
ing its arrival.

Party names borrowed from past


PARTIES, from page 1


he was unaware and "surprised" students
Jessica Goodwin and Vanessa Goodwin
have applied to re-register the Student
Alliance Party.
"I want to know what's happening;"
Offerither, an Alligator entertainment
writer, said.
Neither Goodwin returned phone calls
or e-mails as of press time.
Offenther said it was unlikely he would
have re-registered the party name for the
Spring election, but nevertheless he said
it would have been nice to know about it
as a former party leader. He said Jessica
Goodwin was previouI-lv involved with
the Student Alliance Party, but declined
to comment further, noting he wanted to
contact his former colleagues.
Former Keg Party presidential nominee
Travis Marsh said he doesn't know either
Lauren Mauer or Richard "Ricky" Yan,
who filled out the paperwork to continue
his party's legacy. But when he used the
Keg Party name for his campaign, he said
he knew the original creators of the name


and got their permission.
Mauer and Yan did not return repeated
phone calls and e-mails as of press time.
"I made sure I got everyone's approv-
al," Marsh said. "I think that's a good way
to go about things."
Marsh said he thinks the name was
registered just so no one else could use the
Keg Party name.
"I made sure I got everyone's ap-
proval. I think that's a good way to
go about things."
Travis Marsh
former Keg Party presidential nominee

Sen. Mackenzie Moritz has registered
as president of the Progress Party. He said
he didn't call the previous party leader for
approval to use the name, but said that
since the name hasn't been 'used since
1999, students wouldn't be misled about
its leadership.
Fried said whatever the future holds, she
hopes students will "be able to decipher
between student parties that are concerned
about them as opposed to student parties
that are concerned about themselves."


OFF THE AVENUE


Flickerstick frontman shares TV, road experiences


Ili'ckerstick, participants of
r VH1's "Bands on the Run" in
S2001, wouldn't go back and do
it again. "We're glad it's over," says
vocalist Brandin Lea. "I'm not a fan
of reality TV." Though Flickerstick
spent much of their stint on the
show drunk, Lea says there were
plenty of wild things that happened
that did not end up on television.
"They couldn't show a lot of stuff
for obvious reasons," he says. "I
wouldn't even know where to be-
gin. I don't remember a lot of it, to


tell ou the truth." Since re-releasing
"Welcoming Home the Astronauts"
on Epic Records in November 2001
and selling 100,000 copies, the band
has been busy. Flickerstick left Epic
soon after in search of a better op-
portunity for their musical talent..
"When you're with a major label,
there's always ups and downs," Lea
says. "At that time we were touring
so much, we didn't really notice we
were on a major label half the time
"It was fine for the time we ,\ ere
on," he adds. "I'm not surprised


we broke off from them when we
did." Their new darker sounding
disc, "Tarantula," was released
Oct. 5. "'Astronauts' was written
when I was very young," Lea says.
"'Tarantula' is a different sound be-
cause it's many years later and after
many years on the road."
Saturday brings the band to
Gainesville with openers Time and
Gadwell Lane. Though Flickerstick
has toured six times in Florida,
Gainesville has never been a tour
stop. Two years ago, Flickerstick


was sched-
uled to
Come, but
forced to
cancel due
to a mu-
Jacqueline sic video
Davison shoot in
Playlist California.
"We didn't
jdavison@alligator.org want to
c.an c e ,"
Lea says. "They just sort of made
us." In the next year, the band


plans to continue touring with
"Tarantula," Lea says. "We won't be
gone like we used to be. We're not
going to be on the road nine months
of the year like before." For the
record, Flickerstick's band symbol
is not a tampon, but the scientific
symbol for a gamma ray. "The kid
that did our artwork for 'Astronaut'
thought it would be cool," Lea says.
""I don't know where he found it or
what it pertains to, but I guess he
thought it pertained to the artwork,
and it was cool."

ing scorer. "Most definitely, I have to
learn to be stronger with the ball and
adjust to things I see on the court
that I should be more aware of."
As Williams struggled, so did


junior Bernice Mosby, the. team's
leading scorer.
Mosby don inated the glass, re-
cording 15 rebounds, but made just
2 of 11 shots. Finishing with 4 points,
Mosby struggled with LSU'- ai gri -
sive defense.
"I think that LSU had to con-


'centrate on Bernice," Peck said.
"I think it was very hard for her
to get in the flow of the offeins.c
with how LSU was defending us-
and how we were moving/the
basketball."
The Gators scored the first
5 points of the night, but that


would be their only lead.
Both teams were off their game
to start, as LSU shot 37 percent to
UF's 28 percent in the first half.
The Gators recorded 16 first-half
turnovers.
Peck said UF was not yet
into its offensive game plan,


and down 25-18 at the half, she
had high hopes for the final 20
minutes.
"I thought that we'd correct
the turnovers we had in the first
half," Peck said. "There were just
times where we didn't make good
decisions with the basketball."

added pressure."
Donovan said he's quite familiar
with homecoming experiences. As a
collegiate player at Providence, the
Rockville Centre, N.Y., native felt the
pressure against St. John's.
And as a coach, Donovan has had
to deal with Saginaw, Mich., native
Anthony Roberson, who grew up
54 miles from East Lansing, facing
Michigan State in the 2003 NCAA
Tournament.
Donovan hopes he .can help
Brewer focus against a veteran
Vanderbilt team that w'as picked to


finish la.t in the SEC East.
The departure of forward Matt
Freije seemingly -created a tre-
mendous talent vacuum for the
Commodores.
Vanderbilt, however, has had
little difficulty replacing Freije's SEC-
leading lb 4 pouit- per gaune.
His absence may actually benefit

"L.ast i ear i,. hen \ou hae\ E a pla' -

Commodores (11-5) to a 2-0 confer-
ence start before losing by,15 to No. 9
.Kentuc:kv in Levington WVedne.day.
Despite that recent loss.. Donovan
said he considers the Commodores
one of the most dangerous teams in
the nation.
"I know Kentucky beat them,
and playing in Rupp [Arenal, there's
obviou-usl\ a tremendous advantage
there. Dono\ an aid "Going into

SHAF, from page 24

Welcome to The Anthony Roberson Show.
And if you think he is worried about it, think again.
"Nobody believes in themselves more than me,"
Roberson said after the game.
With Roberson as the catalyst, UF has a chance to open
up SEC play at 5-0 before the big boys come calling -
South Carolina, lMississippi State, Alabama and Kentucky.
Wednesday night proved him to be capable. The next
three games will determine if it was a fluke. And the
stretch that follUo\-s \ ill put him to the ultimate test.
For someone with Roberson's mindset, 16 points
doesn't seem like all that much.

FOOTBALL

Incoming coaches primed to take control of team


By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer -
aabramson@alligator.org

The days of yearning for for-
mer football coach Ron Zook may
officially be over for several UF
receivers.
All it took was a glance at the
Fiesta Bowl.
"I talked to a couple of them
afterward and they were excited,"
said ~LF's new receivers coach,
Billy Gonzales, who helped Urban
Meyer lead Utah to a Fiesta Bowl
win.
"One of the young men [at
Utah] set a Fiesta Bowl record with
15 catches in one game ... We're go-
-ing to ask them to work, and we're
going to try to outwork every other
team in the country, and that's what
we're going to put our stake in."


UF's new offensive look was just
one of many issues that Meyer's
new staff discussed at length
Thursday as .the media got their
first opportunity to mingle with the
incoming crew.
With Meyer off on the recruiting
.trail in hopes of locking up some
of the nation's top talent, his staff
members currently in Gainesville
laid out their various philosophies,
which included a return to disci-
pline and an untraditional offense.
"I believe this is going to be a
very aggressive program, a very
disciplined program., But we
want to have fun," co-defensive
coordinator Greg Mattison said.
"Whenever you talk about a pro-
gram being disciplined, sometimes
you get a stereotype of a real strict
regime. These kids will have fun."
SAfter several publicized off-the-


field incidents during the Zook era,
it appears the new staff will place a
huge emphasis on discipline.
On Thiursda\. Gonzales went
to the apartment of receivers Chad
Jackson and Andre Caldwell to in-
Sspect their living
conditions.
"I stopped
by to make sure
I knew how
they're liv-
ing, make sure
they're living
Gonzales the right way,"
Gonzales -said.
He may not have gotten a true
evaluation.
"The, lkne I was coming by, so
the apartment was pretty spic-and-
span clean," he said.
Jackson and Caldwell will be
spending plenty of time outside


their apartment with Gonzales and
Meyer as the coaches install their
offense, one of the most potent in
the nation last season at Utah.
Gonzales said most of the re-
ceivers watched his Utes dismantle
Pittsburgh in the Fiesta Bowl, 35-7.
"Our wide receivers ran the ball
last year," Gonzales said. "We're
going to bring them back in motion.
We're going to bring them back to
getting pitched, face and use them
in different ways."
Gonzales praised quarterback
Chris Leak.
Despite leading the Southeastern
Conference in passing yards and
touchdowns, it took just five sacks
in a Peach Bowl loss to Miami for
a small faction of UF fans to call for
Meyer to open up the position.
Gonzales, however, did not
seem interested in that idea.


"I think he's exceptional. I think
he's fantastic," he said of Leak.
"Everybody gets excited [about]
what he can do in our offensive sys-
tem. You're dam right he's exciting.
"He's a good athlete, a good
quarterback, and hopefully we can
tap everything he has and hopefully
he'll bring the level up amongst the
rest of the players on the team as a
leader."
Most of the staff will spend a
good portion of January recruiting,
trying to convince prospects that ev-
erything at UF is stable despite the
coaching changes.
"The young men that we're re-
cruiting understand about Florida
football, what it entails, and the
tradition-rich family history that
Florida brings to them," Gonzales
said. "It's an easy sell. Florida sells
itself."

* TWO SENIORS WILL NOT
COMPETE IN THE ALL-AROUND.

Two of the three most important
competitions this season will come on
the road for the UF gymnastics team:
the Southeastern Conference champi-
onships in Duluth, Ga., and the NCAA
championships in Auburn, Ala.
Tonight, the No. 12 Gators get their
first taste of life on the road as they head
to Baton Rouge, La., to take on No. 20
Louisiana State, the sixth top-25 team
UF will face this season.
The opponent, however, is of
little consequence, to UF coach Rhonda
Faehn.
S"LSU for us, in our minds, is our first'
road competition of the season," she
said. "So we're focusing on fixing the
routines and the errors we made last
week and learning from it."
Despite their coach's feelings, the
Gators will get a look at the last remain-
ing team that defeated them at the SEC
championships in 2004, having faced
Georgia and Alabama last weekend.
UF captured a dual meet against
the Tigers by nearly two points. early
last season, but LSU later overtook the
Gators by .05 points to take tlird at the
conference championships;. : -.
Despite the strong showing at last
week's Super Six Challenge, Faehn has
elected to shuffle the lineup this week.
SThe most notable difference is the ab-
sence of Orley Szmuch in several events.
Hampered by an ankle injury, Szmuch
will not be competing in the all-around.

While the UF men's tennis team

ranked players will be missing from
the court.
Junior Jarine Holmia underwent
back surgery early Thursday morn-

"Season-ending injuries are an
unfortunate part of all sports; it's
a terrible thing for Janne," Coach
Andy Jackson said. "Janne and the
rest of our team will respond in the
correct way."
For the second consecutive year,
the team was ranked third in the pre-
season. However, the loss of Holmia
was not factored into the ranking,

Faehn said.
Sophomore Katie Rue will be taking
Szmuch's. place in floor exercise and
freshman Tiffany Murry will compete
in the all-around in just her second col-
legiate meet.
Murry will be joined by Breanne
King, second in last weekend's meet,
and fellow freshman Ashley Reed.
If Szmuch sits out vault, then Tracey
Rai will compete in her place in addition
to her spot on floor.
This week could
also see the 2005 debut
of Chantelle Tousek,

Doley Faehn said. "Whether

the judges score those."
One performer who will not be
rushed back is senior co-captain Erinn
Dooley, who is still recovering from a
stress fracture in her left foot.
"This week Dooley is still just going
to be doing beam," Faehn said. "We
won't look to be putting her into any

Aside from Holmia, in singles
play, freshmen Nestor Briceno and
Greg Ouellette ranked 46th and
47th respectively. Senior Vladimir
Obradovic was 63rd and redshirt
junior Chris Brandi ranked 82nd.
"Season-ending injuries are

Ouellette were ranked 26th. No an-
nouncements have been made as to
who will replace Holmia in this duo.
The Gators were one of nine SEC

from his peers wasn't exactly
positive.
It wasn't uncommon for the
McDonald's All-American from
Portland, Tenn., to hear the word
"traitor" tossed his way while
walking his hometown's streets.

is now seeking some on-court
vengeance against those home-

said.
On 'Saturday, he'll have his
chance, when the Gators (10-3,
2-0 Southeastern Conference)
travel to Nashville to face
Vanderbilt.
For Brewer, who was heav-
ily recruited by Vanderbilt, his

drive away, he expects about 200
friends and family members.
