Pell grant change
may aid students
The Writings on The Wall
Nicki Mohr, left, and Ashley Orynich paint the word "Soror-a-whore" on a concrete block
as part of the Writing on the Wall project Tuesday afternoon. The wall will be construct-
ed on the Plaza of the Americas, where it will be demolished by students on Friday. The
Writing on the Wall project was brought to UF in 2002.

Starting in 2006, students receiving
Pell grants might be able to cover more
of their college expenses if Congress
approves in February a plan to increase
the maximum award by $100 per fear
for five years. .
That means UF students receiving
the grant could be better prepared
to face annually rising tuition costs,
which stand at $174 more thi- \ ear for
students attempting 15 credit hL'ui-
than the\ did in the 2003-04 academic
The proposed changes would in-
crease the maximum award approxi-
mately 12 percent by 2010, raising it
from .4 ,,I0 to $4,550.
The inrea.se probably will only
keep up with inflation and do little to
close the gap between rising tuition
and a Pell grant that has been stagnant
for three years, said Karen Fooks, di-
rector of student financial affairs.
"It probably means you're treading
water," she said.
President Bush announced the plan
in Jacksonville on Friday, weeks after
he supported a change in the federal
financial aid formula that is expected
to leave more than one million stu-
dents with a smaller. Pell grant and
almost 90,000 without any grant at all,
according to the American Council on
Low-income students receive be-
tween $400 and $4,050 depending on
the result of the formula, which calcu-
lates their financial need and the cost of
college, among other things. The cur-
rent formula uses 1988 tax data, while
the new one will use 2002 information,
leaving some students looking richer
on paper next year than they did this
The $100 increase
might help buffer
the effect of the for-
mula for some stu-
Of the more than
one million students
Bush expected to lose a
few hundred dollars
in grants, the increase might make up
for the cut.
And some of those 90,000 students
who would fall short of the "cusp of
eligibility" might still get a minimal
award because of the extra $100, she
"There would be a ripple effect,"
The Pell grant program is $4 billion
in debt, and the new formula could
save the government $300 million, ac-

SG Web site due for user-friendly transformation
* THE CURRENT SITE IS
FAULTY AND OUT OF DATE.
By BRIDGET CAREY
A Student Government Web
site plagued with faults was
something Adam Roberts said
he couldn't stand looking at any
Roberts, SG's technology
cabinet director, shared his vision
Tuesday to establish a factually
correct, updated and useful SG
Web site for all UF students, in-
stead of having a site that he calls
After presenting changes,
Roberts said the next step would
be to hire a company to re-design
the page and then hire a student
to maintain it.
The student previously em-
ployed to update the site had to
leave UF this. semester because
of personal reasons, Roberts said.
But the- departure was not the
sole reason for the site's prob-
lems, he said.
The site features multiple
pages of incorrect, missing and
outdated information and hy-
perlinks, including informa-
tion regarding senator contacts
and photos, senate committee
members, information about the
S n1t president and
and all legisla-
tion since the start of the Spring
As a flagship university re-
cord, the site is nowhere near
the quality it should be, Roberts
said, adding that he and his team
will be modeling it after North
Carolina State University's SG
"Everything they have is what
we're trying to emulate," Roberts
He is working to create a da-
tabase that would show students
exactly what each senator and
elected official has done during
their term. This would include
a listing of what legislation a
senator or executive officer has
authored as well as a senator's
"It gives the average student
an idea of what their senator has
been up to lately," Roberts said.
But aside from factual errors,
Roberts said another problem
was that, "the average student
has no reason to visit this Web
Plans to lure non-SG visitors
would include a Web log and
message boards, he said.
He says the upcoming SG
Spring election and students with
differing political ambitions will
not hinder the site's improve-
ments, which he says could be
done by the end of February.

Gene may hold key to high blood pressure illness
* THE GENE'S ACTION RELATES SPECIFICALLY TO
By SKYLER SMITH
As thermometers took a plunge in recent days, blood pres-
sures have been climbing higher, and a UF study may have
isolated the gene to thwart this phenomenon.
Dr. Zhongjie Sun, a UF assistant professor of physiology
and medicine, has located a gene that may be the culprit
behind cold weather-related high blood pressure and re-
sultant illnesses, such as hypertension and coronary heart
The American Heart Association granted Sun a
four-year, $260,000 grant for his research, which will be
published in the February issue of American Journal of
Physiology Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative
Winter months have the highest rate of cardiovascular
deaths, Sun said. Since blood vessels naturally constrict in
cold weather to warm the body, this affects a rise in blood
Fifty million Americans are believed to have abnor-
mally high blood pressure, or hypertension, with one-third
of them unaware they have the condition, according to the
American Heart Association.
Additionally, the AHA passed stricter
UF guidelines to define hypertension in 2003.
Research Normal blood pressure used to be 120
over 80, said Jane Cullen, director of nurs-
ing at the Student Health Care Center.
"That's now considered pre-hypertension," Cullen said.
While the SHCC has not had any specific cold-related
cases of hypertension, there is a general trend of more
young people with high blood pressure, Cullen said.
Stress, alcohol and cigarette smoking are among the
most common factors that potentially could increase stu-
dents' blood pressure, Cullen said.
Sun studied a .group of genetically engineered mice
lacking AT1A receptors, which receive the blood vessel-
constricting hormone angiotensin II. The mice without
the gene that provides for these receptors and a control
group of unaltered mice were kept at a constant 44 degrees
Fahrenheit for five weeks.
At the conclusion of testing, the control group had a 40-
percent higher rate of hypertension than the mice without
the gene believed responsible for high blood pressure.
Even with Florida's mild winters, Sun-said this is a
trend that should be of concern.
"Forty-four degrees Fahrenheit is an average tempera-
ture of the Gainesville winter," Sun said.
"Even a short-term exposure to the cold, or a part of
your body like the hand, is enough to increase your blood
To protect against cooler weather, Sun suggests wearing
layered clothing, avoiding heavy, heart-straining work and
limiting alcohol consumption.
"Alcohol may give you a temporary feeling of warmth,
but it will lead to a loss of heat and (possibly) hypother-
.mia," Sun said.
Building proposal reconciles progress and posterity
By NEIL HUGHES
Officials charged with the difficult task
of preserving historic city structures while
encouraging development may have found
SIn a meeting of the Historic Preservation
Board on Monday, board members discussed
a proposal recommending the University
Heights Special Area Plan of 2000 be modified
to include provisions for historic buildings.
The affected area lies between the UF cam-
pus and downtown Gainesville, including a
number of fraternity and sorority houses.
Peter Prugh, a UF professorof architecture,
serves as head of the board and authored the
proposed design guidelines for the University
Heights Historic District.
"This neighborhood is going to change,"
Prugh said, "but there are pieces of it that we
want to protect."
SThe goal of the University Heights plan is
to aid university-related developments, such
as apartment buildings, between the campus
and downtown to reduce traffic and increase
Other housing projects being considered
include multi- and single-family homes in
hopes of increasing diversity in the area.
Prugh said the goal is to, approach the
proposal as an amendment to the University
Heights Special Area Plan, rather than group
it with other historic guidelines for the rest of
This way, Prugh said, the plans for
University Heights would not be dependent
upon the passage of other plans.
"This neighborhood is going to
change, but there are pieces of it
that we want to protect."
Head of the Historic Preservation Board
"[The University Heights Historic District
is] worth saving," he said. "We need some
regulations in here that will bridge these two
Jay Reeves, a local architect and member
of the board, said the proposal will allow for
more flexibility regarding historic rules and
development in the area.
"This is more tailored toward the district
itself," Reeves said. "It lets the plans co-exist
with the redevelopment district instead of
Incorporating the two plans would make
regulations easier for potential future devel-
opment, Reeves said.
Emphasizing that the council is meant to
be reasonable and flexible, Prugh said they
would hear any case in which this proposal
could upset current residents.
S"There are going to be conditions in here
where people face hardships," he said. "That's
what the board is for."
The council will meet again Feb. 1 to final-
ize the proposal before presenting it to the city

Transition smooth after Santa Fe VP's resignation
* THE SEARCH FOR RE-

By SKYLER SMITH
Despite the sudden loss of
a top administrator, Santa Fe
Community College is doing busi-
ness as usual.
"It's been almost a seam-
less transition," SFCC President

Former Vice President for
Academic Affairs Nancee Bailey
resigned suddenly Jan. 9, leaving a
vacancy in one of the most impor-
tant seats on campus.

The search for a permanent

SFCC has been strengthened by
"It's a good day for the college.
We were fortunate to have some-
one of Anne Kress's experience
and professionalism to step in for
us," he said.
Kress will continue at SFCC
after her year as vice president of

Ponch guitarist Ryan Geis said.

The band sold visually unfinished but

Strikeforce Diablo's sound could be best

In addition to the material on their self-

Harvard leader implies
genders may be unequal
M ore than ever, the idea that all people are born equal
is taking hold.
The country on Monday payed respect in a
national holiday to one of the most influential civil rights
leaders in history.
Next month will be a celebration of similar visionaries
who have paved the way for the society and the freedoms
we enjoy today.
Despite these advances, however, there are some peo-
ple who still would like to see social thought sent back to
the Stone Age.
Unfortunately, the most glaring recent evidence of this
comes from the highest levels of our educational system.
In a conference Friday, Lawrence H. Summers, presi-
dent of Harvard University, suggested the relative lack of
successful women in the fields of math and science might
be because of inherent biological differences between the
Yes, that's right he said women naturally may be
inferior to men in some areas of scholarship.
Summers proposed this idea in the spirit of scientific
inquiry, but that doesn't change its inherently discrimina-
He offered evidence such as that male students tend to
score higher and lower scores on standardized math tests
in high school than female students, a fact in which he be-
lieves biological differences may be a factor.
It's not surprising a number of female scholars in at-
tendance left the room while he was making these state-
This barely would be tolerable if it came from'some ag-
ing professor who thinks women's suffrage is something
that happens during'childbirth. At least then only the 20
or so students unlucky enough to find only his class open
during drop/add would have to deal with him.
From the leader of the country's most prestigious uni-
versity and one of the most important figures in educa-
tion it is unacceptable.
Arguments that he was hired as a prominent economist
instead of as Harvard president are ridiculous. He has a
standard of conduct befitting his office to uphold regard-
less of where, when or why he is speaking.
Once the public outcry against his statements became
heated, Summers tried to save face by complaining his
statements were misunderstood.
He was careful, however, not to actually refute the
meaning of his words.
The basic flavor of his responses was summed up when
he said, "I'm sorry for any misunderstanding but believe
that raising questions, discussing multiple factors that
may explain a difficult problem and seeking to understand
how they interrelate is vitally important."
He further said people were wrong to believe he meant
women could not succeed at the highest levels of math and
Of course, this still leaves plenty of room for them to be
perceived as subordinate to men.
Despite his intentions, Summers' words cannot be de-
fended by statements claiming them to be in the interest of
It is no less wrong to say people may be genetically
inferior in their understanding of certain concepts because
'of gender than it is to say this because of race.
That sort of unthinking discrimination has no place in
our society, much less our universities.

Exploitation prevention is goal of choice
Editor: The most dangerous aspect of

Holiday celebrates liberties for all races
Editor: Martin Luther King Jr. Day is not
a black holiday. It sickens me the way peo-
ple and the media treat this and other civil
rights holidays. Instead of just asking black
Americans year after year how they think
America has progressed or is progressing,
how about asking some white Americans
every once in while, or asking Asian-
Americans. Or, better yet, how about asking
a politician holding elective office? The Civil
Rights Movement did not only involve black
people; we're missing the point.
During Black History Month, try to learn
or teach about other leaders besides MLK
Jr. and Malcolm X. Many other men and
women were and are involved in the great
American fight for equality.

the obvious "tsunami victims dying by
the thousands from disease, etc.".- we all
know they'll be comforted by mental images

Throughout my four years in Gainesville,
not much has made me as happy as getting
some exercise and enjoying our beautiful
Florida weather while riding my bike to
class, work or a friend's apartment. Nothing
in Gainesville is more than a few miles away,
and riding my bike to class is quicker than
taking the bus and more enjoyable than sit-
ting in my car. I agree with Andrew that our
streets are overcrowded not by bikes, but
by cars that pollute and congest our southern
college town. Fellow Gators, make a healthy,
inexpensive and environmentally conscious
decision to put down your car keys, flip up
your kickstand and ride like the wind.
Students ambivalent to SG controversy
Editor: For the past week, I have picked
up my copy of the Alligator and had to
read about "nime-stealing" within Student
Government. And each day I chuckle and
proceed to show my friends an article show-
ing a very humorous situation.
I believe that SG takes themselves way
too seriously. A lot of the members of SG are
in it just to pad their resumes.
I beg you to stop giving a forum for their
whining. No one but themselves cares about
this "name game." In no way does it effect
how I'll vote, because I still won't. No matter
which party is elected, life on campus will
not change one bit. In fact, the only time I
notice SG is when they pass out a million
flyers-before the election. Please SG, stop
concerning yourselves with silly names and
start concerning yourselves with under-
standing your roles as ambassadors of the

Dispute ends in stabbing
Valdez spill lingers

An argument escalated into a

his roommate with a guitar string late
Monday afternoon, reports state.
"I just stabbed the [exlletive]

is in my pocket."
Anthony H. Hurley
Anthony H. Hurley, 25, allegedly at-
tacked Nathan E. Johnson, 30, after an ar-
gument in their shared residence, 306 N.W.
Eighth St., according to Gainesville Police
Aided by fellow residents Gregory V.
Davis, 43, and David J. Butler, 18, Johnson
was able to fend off Hurley's initial attack.
However, shortly afterward, Hurley alleg-
edly discarded the string and lunged at
Johnson with a pocketknife.
GPD responded to a call from Johnson,
who said he had been stabbed in the right
side of his neck and identified Hurley. .
Davis and Butler managed to separate
the roommates, but Hurley fled, taking off
toward Northwest Third Avenue, where
he was later picked up by police.
"I just stabbed the [expletive] inside in
the neck, and the knife is in my pocket,"
Hurley said, upon being approached'by

* THE SPEAKER'S BUREAU STILL HAS ABOUT
$100,000 FOR PRE-BUDGETED PROJECTS.
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Small student organizations may continue to count
on Accent, UF's speakers bureau, to help bring well-
known orators for the rest of the semester.
An additional $30,000 was added to Accent's co-
sponsorship budget Tuesday by the Student Senate,
allowing the bureau to meet an increasing number of
requests to aid smaller campus groups. Three groups
have come to Accent for help since the funds initially
were approved last week, Chairman David Buchalter
Accent still has about $100,000 in its budget for
its own programs. The additional $30,000 will fund
joint events that were not planned when the bureau's
budget was approved, Accent Treasurer Evan Tyroler
"We're not over-budgeting at all," he added.
Student Sen. Jason Sherry said during the meeting
that while he supported Accent, he recommended sen-
ators be more cautious about repeatedly funding orga-
nizations after they've exceeded their yearly budget.
He reminded senators of additional funding
needed two years ago by Student Government
"Let's do it at the right time and not throughout
the year," Sherry said.

are just two of 180 organizations
involved in this semester's fair.
The IDEAL-sponsored event

from honors societies and service

LJF leads SEC in academic honors
The Gators experienced a tumultuous football sea-
an, but also a conference-leading academic semester.
UF led the Southeastern Conference
with 48 student-athletes named to the
2004 SEC Fall Academic Honor Roll in
conference-sponsored sports. Of the
48, 26 were football players, which
led the conference as well.
The Gators also led the SEC with
S 15 soccer players on the Honor Roll
ak and tied Alabama, Georgia and'
4ississippi with seven volleyball recipients.
Football recipients included Chris Leak, Mike Degory
nd Vernell Brown. Soccer honorees included Melanie
Booth, Ashley Kellgren and Stephanie Freeman.
The 2004 SEC Fall Academic Honor Roll is based on
grades from the 2004 Spring, Summer and Fall terms. A
student-athlete needs a 3.0 grade point average for the
academic year or a 3.0 cumulative average to be named
to the SEC Academic Honor Roll.

The Gators played host to recruits for the sec-

school seniors getting a taste of orange and blue,
only three recruits made the trip to UF this time.
Offensive lineman Simon Codrington,
ranked No. 48 in the nation by.Scout.com, put a
positive spin on the small number.
"The fact that I was there with only two other

the school," Codrington said.
eyer "He showed me what it was
like being a student there."
However, Codrington's most lasting impres-
sion came not from the city, but rather from the
new head coach. Codrington got a chance to
meet Meyer and new offensive line coach John
Hevesy, and said he was blown away by the
"There hasn't been one place I've been to in
which I got to talk to the head coach so much,"
Codrington said. "I loved getting a chance to
talk to him about everything."
Besides UF, Codrington's choices include a
Florida State, North Carolina State and West
Virginia, which he will visit this week.
Doug Worthington, an Ohio State oral com-
mitment, also made the trip to Gainesville, but his
heart remained in Buckeye country. Scout.com's
No. 4 defensive end, Worthington was hosted
by freshman linebacker Brandon Siler but came
away still committed to Ohio State.
The third visitor, running back Mikell
Simpson, said his visit to Gainesville was great.
UF continues to pursue the talented back despite
scholarship offers from Alabama, Nebraska,
Virginia and Michigan State.
Oral commitments are non-binding until a
national letter-of-intent is signed on National
Signing Day on Feb. 2.

Gators undefeated in SEC play

Prior to the Southeastern

Arkansas on Jan. 8, the Gators went
8-3 during a non-conference sched-
ule that ranked 172nd out of 326
Division I teams.

tunity to continue that momentum
against Tennessee at the O'Connell
Center, as the Gators (11-3, 3-0 SEC)
begin a three-game homestand.

that the month-ending home slate,
