State budget may give UF less funding
By JAMES VANLANDINGHAM
Alligator Staff Writer
TALLAHASSEE In a budget
recommendation where Gov. Jeb Bush
proposes to slash higher education fund-
ing by nearly 8 percent in fiscal year
20Q5-20,06,-UF stands to lose millions of
dollars in state grant money.
"We feel that once we get an
opportunity to explain in detail
how these programs positively
affect the lives of Floridians,
we'll be able to make a good
case for full funding."
UF Health Science Center spokesman
Bush would discontinue $1.7 million
in grants to UF's Health Science Center
for cancer research and cut total grants
for UF by about $3.6 million a de-
crease of more than 4 percent.
Moreover, Bush's budget indicates
he would veto a $2 million grant for
UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences to map the citrus genome.
In a statement, UF Health Science
Center spokesman Tom Fortner noted
that it is still very early in the budget
"We feel that once we get an op-
portunity to explain in detail how these
programs positively affect the lives of
Floridians, we'll be able to make a good
case for full funding," he stated in an e-
Calls to the governor's press office
Wednesday were not returned.
SBush's budget, which is merely a rec-
ommendation to the legislature, whose
session convenes March 8, would also
raise in-state tuition 7.5 percent.
The cuts in state grants to UF come
in amid diminishing funding for state
universities in general. In a line-item
display of the budget, which is available
online at http://ebudget.state.fl.us, the
governor proposed to slash university
funding from $2.22 billion to $2.04 bil-
lion, a decline of $172.7 million.
S But the governor's total budget is
$61.5 billion an increase of nearly $3
billion over last year. The declining high-
er-education budget makes up about 3
percent of that total.
UF wasn't the only school to see a
funding drop in the proposed budget:

High degrees bring clout
* BUT COLLEGE GRADUATE SALA-
RIES ARE NOT RISING AS FAST AS
DURING THE 1980s AND 1990s.
By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
When Ryan Rhyce graduated frofn UF in
Spring 2004, he took his bachelor's degree in
psychology and went straight to law school
without even looking for a job. He expects a
law degree to bring not just flexibility but a
higher salary as well.
"It's a stepping stone for so many different
things," Rhyce said. "Psychology was more a
means to an end."
Rhyce's plan has become more common as
the increase of salaries for educated workers
began to slow in 2000 after rising throughout
the 1980s and 1990s, according to the U.S.
Bureau of Labor Statistics. Meanwhile, the per-
centage of college-educated
Americans has increased
steadily since the 1950s and
will continue to rise.
As the number of college
graduates grows, students
are finding themselves look-
ing for ways to stand out
Matheny from the crowd.
"It's all about social sta-
tus, and status is always a relative concept,"
said Albert Matheny, director of Academic
Advising. "If everyone has a bachelor's degree,

Machen seeks solutions to student alcohol abuse
By BRIAN HAGEN
The recent alcohol-related deaths of at least four students
led UF President Bernie Machen to host a meeting Wednesday
to develop a plan to combat alcohol abuse among the student
"I had not been used to the amount of drinking, underage
drinking and binge drinking I've seen on this campus," said
Machen, who came to UF after serving as president of the
University of Utah.
Susan Crowley, executive vice president of the Alachua
County Medical Society, cautioned about changing trends in
"Kids are binge drinking; they're drinking to get drunk
before they even go out," Crowley said. "This is not your
parents' drinking problem."
Suggestions from attendees, including Alachua County
Sheriff Steve Oelrich, focused on changing alcohol-related
attitudes and Gainesville's party culture.
"We're going to have a problem until we get to a point
when the kids say, 'This is not a cool thing to do,"' Oelrich
Alachua County Commission Chairwoman Cynthia
Chestnut suggested sending college students to area middle
and high schools to recount their problems with alcohol and
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan.advocated shutting down any
establishment found to serve alcohol to underaged patrons
and educating students on the adverse effects alcohol can
have on their academics and careers.
Student Sen. Mike Belle suggested late-night alternatives,
such as the coffeehouses and jazz clubs of larger cities.
An official joint meeting of the city of Gainesville and UF
will take place Feb. 16, featuring a guest speaker who will ad-
dress further methods of curbing substance abuse.
The prevalence of drinking among underage UF students
in Fall 2004 was 72.8 percent, according to self-reported data
provided by GatorWell Health Promotion Services. More than
half of those surveyed admitted to binge drinking. More than
one in three claimed to have driven under the influence.
Oelrich said he believes the numbers to be much higher.
"I'm very passionate about this issue," Oelrich said. "I my-
self lost my 18-year-old son in a similar incident, and it cuts
me to the bone."
"Kids are binge drinking; they're drinking to get
drunk before they even go out. This is not your
parents' drinking problem."
Executive vice president of the Alachua County Medical
Machen also called for the reimplementation of the
Gainesville Alcohol Abuse Prevention Corrimittee, which was
formed in 1999 following two student deaths and changed UF
party culture by implementing the rave ordinance and no-re-
entry policy at football games.
The Reitz Union's Gator Nights program still offers stu-
dents alcohol-free options, and the Later Gator buses keep
revelers from driving home. UF also offers counseling for
students through the Student Health Care Center and the
University Counseling Center.
Local group protests circus, alleging animal cruelty
By LAUREN MACDONALD

Jennifer Lopez and Ana Del Alamo protest animal captivity in front of the Circus Pages Wednesday af-
ternoon. Lopez and Del Alamo are active members of Animal Activists of Alachua.
About nine members of the
Animal Activists of Alachua
waved signs about animal cru-
elty at the entrance to the Alachua
County Fairgrounds, where Circus

Circus animals spend their lives
chained in cages and beaten as
part of their training, said Carolyn
Mullin, the group's president.
"We don't feel any animal
should be used as a means for hu-
man entertainment," Mullin said..
Elephants are trained with
bullhooks, which are long poles
with two sharp hooks on the end,
she said. Elephants have sensitive
skin, so circuses use powder to
cover up the inevitable scars.
Mullin said Circus Pages has
repeatedly violated federal animal
welfare regulations in the past. The
circus was cited in 2002 for failing
to test four elephant handlers for
tuberculosis, which can spread be-
tween elephants and humans.
At that point, Mullin said, the
issue concerns human safety as
well as prevention of animal cru-

Circus Pages and other animal cir-
cuses will retire their animals into
special animal sanctuaries.

Sheriff combats traffic fatalities with speed-limit campaign
* SHERIFF STEVE OELRICH CITED
MORE CARS AND FEWER ROADS AS
CAUSES OF THE FATALITIES.
By ELIZABETH PRANN
Following a sharp increase in traffic fatal-
ities last year, the Alachua County Sheriff's
Office has implemented a campaign to
combat aggressive driving that will focus on
stronger enforcement of speed limits.
'Sheriff Steve Oelrich proposed the plan
after his office reported 52 traffic fatalities
in 2004, practically doubling the previous
year's total of 29.
- Oelrich said he looked at a 25-year traffic
history and found 45,000 more cars regis-
tered in the county, an increase in student
vehicles and approximately 170,000 licensed
"We have almost two times as many
drivers," Oelrich said. "The roads are more
Making this increase more dangerous is
the fact that there are not enough new roads
to compensate for the increase of traffic flow,
"It's less safe to be out on the highways
than it was 25 years ago," he said.
The campaign consists of new radar
equipment for officers, greater numbers of
both marked and unmarked patrol vehicles,
five new BMW motorcycles and a dedicated
traffic bureau within the ASO, Oelrich said.
Created about 2 1/2 years ago, the bu-
reau consists of one commander, one lieu-
tenant, two sergeants and about 15 deputies.
The officers primarily patrol at high-traffic
times such as weekends
and rush hour.
The campaign is go-
ing as planned neither
Oelrich nor ASO Public
Information Officer Lt.
Jim Troiano have any com-
"The sheriff is taking
a very strong position," Troiano said. "We
want to go out and crack down on these ag-
So far this year, the agency has reported
no traffic fatalities.
Additionally, both mentioned the nearby
town of Waldo as a model of safe driving,
crediting local law enforcement efforts.
The town of 821 was designated as a
"traffic trap" by the American Automobile
Association in 2003. Waldo, which is
within Alachua County, is known for
heavy ticketing along a stretch of U.S. 301
where the speed limit drops from 55 mph
to 35 mph.
"People abide by the speed limit there,"
Oelrich said. "And they have a very low ac-
Alachua County issued over 70,000 traf-
fic tickets last year. Troiano said he hopes
the campaign will spread awareness of the
dangers of excessive speeding and encour-
age drivers to abide by posted regulations.

Administration, students discuss campus issues
Administration, students discuss campus issues
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice presi-
dent for student affairs, provided
the opportunity for heads of six stu-
dent organizations and the Student
Senate to sing praises and air griev-
ances in her office Wednesday.
"This office is here for students,"
Telles-Irvin said. "One of the things
I'm struck by is how few students
know that it's here."
Student Senate President Bryson
Ridgway organized the meeting,
which included presidents of the
Asian Student Union, Hispanic
Student Association, Pride Student
Union, Graduate Student Council,
Interfraternity Council and
Representatives first lauded
opportunities at.UF such as study
abroad and internships.
Telles-Irvin later opened up the
floor to criticisms and suggestions
for improvement. Criticisms ranged
from under-representation and
diversity issues to UF's role in the
community and its image at large.
Asian Student Union President
Mark Villegas said international
credits should make up a larger
part of students' general education
"There's no Latino studies [mi-
nor], which totally blows my mind,"
Villegas said. "We're in Florida."
Students suggested involvement
with the Gainesville community.
"We're basically the heart of
Gainesville," said Mike Bowen of
the Graduate Student Council, "and
we should use the great resources
that we have to give to that. com-
When Telles-Irvin asked how UF
could reach its goal of becoming a
Top 10 school, Allison Andrews of
the Pride Student
i Union said she
was worried UF
might be push-
ing research too
would take away
Telles-Irvin quality. She said
have done excellent research but
can't connect with students.
There was a consensus at the
meeting that freshmen are given
a mixed message. They are told to
hurry up and graduate and at the
same time to branch out and get
involved. IFC President John Dicks
suggested a mentor program for
undergraduates as a solution.
It would also help build a bridge
to the students, Bowen said.
Dicks suggested Telles-Irvin
make herself available once a month
in a chat room and continue to hold
monthly meetings with students.
FAB auction contributes to Spring Break charity trips

Florida Alternative Breaks raised between
$500 and $1,000 in their third annual silent
The auction, held in a Reitz Union meeting
room from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., raised money for
funding the organization's Spring Break trips.
As Spring Break approaches and UF stu-
dents plan trips to exotic locations around the
world, members of Florida Alternative Breaks
plan to spend their Spring Break contributing
to needy causes across the United States.
"Each trip has a different issue that is prev-
alent here in Gainesville," said Sara Hanson,
the organization's fund-raiser and a third-year
sociology student. "The idea behind FAB is to
expose the students to the issue in a different
environment so they come back to Gainesville
and volunteer here."
Items available at the auction ranged from
a hotel stay at a Holiday Inn to a baseball hat
autographed by the Jacksonville Jaguars' Joe
Zelenka. The items were donated by 19.busi-
nesses around Gainesville.
The group's upcoming community ser-
vice projects will take place throughout the
Southeast United States. This year, the orga-
nization also is expanding internationally, and
the members will travel to Costa
On Rica. The group has been provid-
Catpus ing the opportunity for students
to go on community service trips
for about 12 years.
Florida Alternative Breaks uses the silent
auction and other fundraisers to ease the cost
of trips to the service project sites. A weeklong
trip can cost as little as $250 if fundraising is

The trips provide a variety of challenges

"Our goal is to be a posi-

We're about being there for

Members spoke about

"Our fraternity is based
on Christ but with the things
any other fraternity does,"
President Paul Kayiales said.
Many of the six found-

Council recruitment process
in past semesters and it
wasn't for them, prompting,-
them to start a UF chapter of

Sean Cunningham, a

Gainesville Regional Utility customers need
not worry about added surcharges to their en-
ergy bills despite recent-plans by Florida Power
& Light Co. to pass on hurricane-related fees to
GRU Chief Financial Officer Jennifer Hunt
said each year publicly owned GRU budgets for
unforeseen costs provide for consistent rates and
serve as a contingency fund for emergencies.
"Fortunately, we're well-positioned to absorb
any additional costs such as those that resulted
from the hurricanes this year," Hunt said.
On Tuesday, FPL gained the approval of the
Public Service Commission to pass $354 million
of its storm-related expenses onto the company's
more than four million customers in the form of a
$2.09 fee to be tacked onto their monthly electric
bills. The increase, which will take effect in mid-
February, is expected to last two years.
However, GRU had prepared for such sce-
Although GRU spent an estimated $5.5 mil-
lion to $6 million to compensate for local destruc-
tion caused by Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne,

similar to those imposed by privately owned

Instead, between 85 percent and 90 percent
of that sum will be reimbursed by the Federal
Emergency Management Agency, Hunt said.
FPL must still justify its rate increase at hear-
ings in March and April.
If it is not approved, the company will be
expected to reimburse its customers for the extra

Bill proposes blood donor privacy
Product of cooperation
within Florida Legislature
By SKYLER SMITH
Two Florida officials announced a pro-
posed bill aimed at strengthening privacy
protection for blood donors in Gainesville.
Florida Rep. Larry Cretul, R-Ocala, un-
veiled his latest bill, co-sponsored by. state
Sen. Rod Smith, D-Gainesville, at an outdoor
press conference Wednesday morning at
the LifeSouth Community Blood Center on
Newberry Road. '
"This is an important piece of legislation,"
Cretul said of the Blood Donor Protection
"It protects our state's blood supply by en-
suring privacy for those who give so altruisti-
cally to save the lives of strangers."
Cretui is a "galloneer" blood donor who
last Fall received two pints of blood in-a
transfusion for an ulcer.
"Who can better communicate the message
than someone who has been there on both
ends?" he asked.
The bill would implement changes at
blood centers across Florida, including
LifeSouth, which distributes about 200,000
units of blood annually to healthcare facilities
in Florida, Georgia and Alabama.
Cretul said he hopes to push the bill
through the Florida House in the next two
S ^n_- months, and if passed the
bill would take effect on
Dale Malloy, president
and CEO of the Florida
Georgia Blood Alliance and
a former president of the
Smith American Association of
Blood Banks, said donor
anonymity is essential to keep the flow of do-
nations strong and protect the blood supply
"It's important for the bill to reinforce to
the public the necessity of giving that quiet
donation," Malloy said.
Privacy is what keeps the volunteers hon-
est about any diseases that might infect the
blood supply and thus keeps the blood safe
for recipients, Malloy said.

FSU chiropractic school
deserves lack of support
This time, we don't have to joke on FSU. They're doing
a pretty good job of it themselves.
In case you haven't heard through the incredulous-
student grapevine, FSU soon may add a chiropractic school to
its "esteemed" campus.
But this is no laughing matter. The chiropractic-school
proposal could have dire consequences for not only FSU's
integrity, but the integrity of the state university system as a
The program would be the only one of its kind in the coun-
try, and not without reason.
The scientific community, as a whole, vehemently op-
poses the inclusion of chiropractics as a legitimate healing art.
Studies of chiropractics' possible health benefits have been
inconclusive, and proponents' arguments have not been ac-
cepted by prominent medical associations. Further, medical
professionals are leery of questionable "spiritual" elements
sometimes associated with the practice.
For instance, the Capital Medical Society, an association of
more than 500 Tallahassee-area doctors, unanimously voted
Jan. 4 to oppose the school.
FSU's faculty has spoken as well. At least seven medical
school professors have threatened to resign if the program is
approved, and 30 faculty members collectively took out a full-
page ad in the Tallahassee Democrat in protest.
There is no support for the proposal even' within FSU's
Board of Trustees. While it did vote 11-2 to pass the issue to the
state Board of Governors, several trustees openly opposed the
plan and none publicly favored it.
To be fair, however, FSU actually did not ask for a chiro-
practic school. Unsurprisingly, the driving force behind the
proposal is Florida Senate Majority Leader Dennis Jones, who
himself is a chiropractor.
But this is not a matter of concern only for FSU. If it was,
we simply would stand by and laugh as the university's repu-
tation went down like the Seminoles against the Gators this
This is a matter of concern for Florida's public university
system, which already faces enough challenges.
At the very least, the $9 million annually the Legislature
appropriated for the-chiropractic program not to mention
the cost of a new building to house it could be spent on ad-
dressing issues such as overcrowding, low teacher salaries and
And the state's image certainly doesn't need another mark
against it, considering the popular perception of Florida as a
loony bin since the spectacle of the 2000 presidential election
But some good has come out of the proposal, if only be-
cause of the controversy it has generated. The discussions in-
volved have thrust into sharp relief the fact that no clear line of
authority exits over the state's public universities, as the state
Legislature, the schools' boards of trustees and the state Board
of Governors still fight for control.
In this case, the Board of Governors needs to take charge
and kill this proposal before any more word of it can get out.
So when you feel like laughing at the things the garnet and
gold do to themselves, instead take the time to tell them you
don't appreciate their bringing the whole state down with
And then you can laugh.

Bush mandate means new scandals
Once upon a time, George W. Bush was looked
upon as an accidental president. His election
seemed like an aberration and a freak event that
would stand out in history books forever. But on Nov. 2,
not only did the President win re-election, but he won
by a margin of more than 3.5 million votes. Suddenly, it
seemed'the dream had become a nightmare. Who would
have predicted Dubya would dominate the first decade of
the 21st century? His victory isn't only a major coup for
-the Bushes, it's a realignment of the geopolitical landscape
of America one that has granted him a political man-
date to drain the lifeblood from democracy, push ahead
with the right's ideological program and rule in a way in
which no sin can be too bold. So, what can we expect from
the next four years? Here's a guide to the next phase of his
revolutionary second term:
1. Picture a fantasy of total control.
Dubya is no footnote in history he single-handedly
heralded a conservative takeover of all three branches of
government. With a fully Republican Congress at his dis-
posal, he intends to rule on the three-issues that won him
the election: God, guns and gays. In the judicial branch,
the president choreographed the rise of Alberto Gonzalez,
who repeatedly supported the president's right to impris-
on and torture anyone involved in national security.
2. What second term jinx?
Despite the actions of Halliburton, despite the may-
hem and disaster in Iraq, despite the absence of weap-
ons of mass destruction, despite the Abu Ghraib and
Guantanamo Bay tortures and despite Tom Delay's dirty
politics and lying about his military record, Bush still got
elected. Whatever scandals pop up in his second term will
be small potatoes compared to his first.
3. Tax reform and Social Security.
Erik Maza The gist of Bush's tax reform
Speaking Out plan is to shift the tax burden to the
working class by removing taxes
on investment income, something
that, along with privatization, has Wall Street salivating.
We need these things like we need a Tara Reid comeback,
mainly because there isn't a crisis with Social Security and
tax cuts already benefit the elite to the detriment of every-
one else. To preserve the solvency of Social Security, Bush
needs to make a few changes to benefits and taxation, not
revamp a program more than 47 million retirees depend
on for a living.
4. The War on Terror.
Under Bush, America only can lose its already dwin-
dling reputation abroad and, as he continues to press his
military agenda, we can only hope Iraq doesn't become
our generation's Vietnam. Since the President blurred
the line between Iraq and the War on Terror, let me put
it in perspective: at a recent press conference, Tommy
Thompson, former secretary of health and human ser-
vices, wondered out loud why "terrorists hadn't' attacked
our food supply, because it is so easy to do."
5. What to do.
Before you seek asylum abroad, why not try to piss
off a few evangelicals and really rub it in to the idiots in
charge. Did you quit drinking? Start again! -It's going to
be a long four years, and getting loaded will be the easiest
way to take your mind off of politics. Don't forget to have
extremely deviant sex what better way is there to an-
noy the family-values parade than to show solidarity with
your kinky brethren? Finally, go hiking and enjoy what's
left of America's wildlife, because in a few years we might
not have what most people would call "an environment."

Letters to the ZE C or
Speaker's reasoning may have merit
Editor: Wednesday's editorial ignored
the fact that there are basic differences
between men and women. Comparing
claims of gender differences to claims of
racial differences is absolutely ridiculous.
Many studies have shown the male brain
is more oriented to mathematic reasoning
and the female brain is more oriented to
verbal reasoning. There is nothing in-
sulting about this, and it does not mean
women cannot be good at math or men
cannot be good at English. There are fewer
women at the top of the science and math-
ematics academic fields, and there must be
some reason for this.
I'm sure the writer of the editorial be-
lieves this is only because men always get
the best opportunities, but that simply is
not the case. The president of Harvard was
merely offering theories to explain this.
The editorial was far more ignorant than
the author claimed the speech to be.
Existing buses could be eco-friendly
Editor: Gainesville needs to make its
buses more environmentally sound.
However, this does not require buy-
ing new buses to make them more eco-
friendly; all it takes is using biodiesel fuel
in place of regular diesel fuel. Biodiesel
is simple to use, biodegradable, nontoxic
and essentially free of sulfur and aromat-
ics. It is less toxic than table salt and biode-
grades as quickly as sugar. Since it is made
in America from renewable resources, its
use decreases our dependence on foreign
oil and contributes to our own economy.
Many students don't realize riding the
bus can be harmful to their health. Diesel-
fuel exhaust not only smells bad but also
contains carcinogens and greenhouse
gases. Just standing at a bus stop for 10
minutes can equal the exposure of smok-
ing dozens of cigarettes. Lung cancer and
asthma are just a few of the conditions that
diesel-fuel exhaust can contribute to.
Converting to biodiesel is easy.
Biodiesel can be combined at any level
with petroleum diesel to create a biodie-
sel blend. Only the highest blends require
small-engine modifications. Biodiesel
also provides improved lubricity over
petroleum diesel, helping engines run
smoother with comparable performance.
Numerous communities have switched to
using biodiesel for school buses and other
vehicles. Universities such as Harvard
University and Purdue University are
using biodiesel in order to become more
Hydrogen fuel cells may be the wave
of the future; but they are cost-restrictive
right now. Biodiesel provides the ideal
transition to make Regional Transit System
buses cleaner and more eco-efficient. It can
be used in the entire fleet without a large
financial investment. Biodiesel is one step
closer to a healthier environment and a
more sustainable university. I urge stu-
dents to support more eco-friendly buses
for their own health and for the sake of
Summers not fit to be Harvard leader
.Editor: This is an open letter to
Lawrence H. Summers:
It would appear that you lack the nec-
essary qualifications of an educator in
that you do not believe every child can
learn equally. You say there is a paucity
of women in the sciences and mathemat-
ics because they may lack the innate abil-
ity. Once we were told blacks could not
learn to read. Then we were told a college
education would interfere with a woman's
You are part of the problem, sir es-
pecially by making such a comment while
in your position. In doing so, you also
shed doubt on the integrity of Harvard
Since you haven't been able to sur-
mount the bastion of white male privileges
you were given as an accident of birth, it
would appear.it is you who have the learn-
ing disability, But perhaps the answer lies
elsewhere. To make such a comment at a
symposium with accomplished female ed-
ucators at the time of Martin Luther King
Jr.'s birthday indicates you may be moti-
vated by misogyny rather than ignorance.
In either case, you are unfit to serve and
should resign as president of Harvard.
President, Florida National Organization for
Inauguration no worse than Clinton's
Editor: The date was Jan. 20, 1997.
The place: Washington, D.C. The event:
William Jefferson Clinton's second in-
auguration as president of the United
States. The cost: $29.6 million. One might
say that is a hefty price to pay for a mere
political party. However, it gets even bet-
ter. Factoring inflation data taken from
U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor
Statistics and the Consumer Price Index
for the Metro Washington, D.C., area
- into the equation, the price as it would
be today would jump to a rough estimate
of $36 million. If I'm not mistaken, that
compares quite nicely with today's price
on Bush's inauguration, which at the mo-
ment is estimated at $40 million. I would
say they more or less cancel each other out
where cost and spending are concerned,
yet I didn't see any Democrats hollering
about the price tag of their savior's inau-
I find it odd Jim O'Loughlin would
claim that these very expensive inaugura-
tions and political parties are thrown only
by rich Republicans for their rich friends,
when apparently Clinton had very similar
friends. Mind you, the world was not such
a peaceful place in 1997, yet people still
poured out their dollars to grab a seat to
see Clinton sworn in. America is a country
based on freedom, in which you can freely-
give money to organizations, charities and
I just wish I could have used that free-
dom to attend the 1997 bash and maybe
snort some coke in the vicinity of B-Clint
- and maybe Monica, too.
Now that's my idea of money well

party applications. Florida Blue Key member Pedro "Peter"
Allende and Darren Goldman applied to be the Ignite party
president and treasurer, respectively, but Beeland would not
release what requirements the duo didn't meet because "it's a
violation of student records," she said.
Beeland said her department gave Allende and Goldman
a week's notice to find a student to replace the one that did
not meet qualifications, but neither Allende or Goldman re-
sponded to the notice.
Allende, a first-year law student, said he was not aware
Ignite did not meet requirements and had no knowledge of
the application's status as he was focusing on school work.
"School is a priority for me," Allende said, adding that he
would have to investigate before he commented further.
To participate in SG elections, an applicant must be
registered as a full-time student, have taken at least one
Summer term class and have a minimum 2.0 GPA both for
the previous semester and overall. The

FSU expansion though the school received $8 million
for such enhancements last year.
And though the governor's proposal found $1.5
million for an FSU chiropractic school that doesn't yet
exist, it would cut nearly 25 percent of the funding for
FSU's fledgling medical school.
UF Student Body President Jamal Sowell said he
was disappointed that the'governor would raise tu-
ition for'students-while decreasing the state's commit-
ment to higher education.
"The state has a mandate to ensure that the proper
necessities are given to the students of the state of
Florida," he said. "Education should be a top prior-
Sowell added that low tuition costs at Florida
universities are beneficial to the state because they
encourage qualified students to attend in-state schools
instead of enrolling elsewhere.
Undergraduate in-state tuition in Florida rose 7.5
percent in 2004 and 8.5 percent in 2003.
"Of course we understand that there will be [tu-
ition] increases because of inflation, but we don't want
it this high and not every single year," Sowell said.
State Sen. Rod Smith, a Democrat who represents
Alachua County, said he was unable to comment on
the governor's proposed budget as he was still unfa-
miliar with its specifics.
Bachelor's degree more common, less valuable
SALARY,from page 1
the only way to show educational status
is to have a higher degree."
But it's not as simple as earning an ad-
vanced degree, said Lauren Pasquarella
Daley, assistant director for graduate ser-
vices at the Career Resource Center.
Employers once looked at gradu-
ate students as costly investments,.
but they've started to see the value of
employees with master's degrees and
the critical-thinking, inter-
Student personal and management
Life abilities they bring to their
jobs, she said.
"Employers are starting to appreciate
those skills," Daley said.
In technical fieid,;. such as engineering
or busiess-.. .a bachelor s degree is suf-
ficient, and having an advanced degree
may make students overqualified for
entry-level positions, she said.
"Education is not always enough
nowadays," Daley said. "You have to
have some practical experience to get the
edge on \ our iomp-Itition "
Students should w eigh options before
heading straight to graduate school, she
said. If they don't have experience in the
field, a master's degree may not help
them find a job. Plus, its expensive.
_ "It's really hard to get through," Daley
said. "It's something a student should
consider carefully, because there are op-
Another option for students is to put
dual-enrollment or Advanced Placement
credits toward a combined bachelor's
and master's degree, Matheny said.
Most students bring 12 to 15 credits
when they first enroll at UF, and too
many pursue double majors or dual de-
grees, he said. If they instead put their se-
nior year toward a graduate degree, they
could use the Bright Futures Scholarship
Program to pay for it and get a head-start
on a master's.
"What's happening now is as the
'bachelor's degree becomes more and
more common, it becomes less and less
valuable," Matheny said. "Therefore it's
all about distance how much you can
distance yourself from the crowd."
SLaw degrees are becoming more like
bachelor's degrees used to be, as students
such as Rhyce go there for the flexibility.
"A lot of students go to law school
with no intention of practicing law; they
just know it's going to give them extra

What began as a study tour became a
journey ending in pictures and paintings with
vivid colors and shapes.

UF alumnus Robert Ponzio toured Asia for
three weeks, painting the scenes.

for eight months, about the history and cul-

fine arts and painting at UE "After completing
the class, I, along with 1.6 other teachers were
eligible to apply for a study tour."
The inspiration for this tour came from
Monica Rohrbaugh, coordinator of educations
and training programs at UF, Ponzio said.
"Robert certainly does not need anyone,
especially me, to inspire him to create such
wonderful works," Rohrbaugh said..
The exhibition at Oak High School will run
through Feb. 2.
Ponzio said he painted everything and ev-

trip, which was made possible in part by UF's
Asian Studies Program

how simple these people live, but they are
happy," Ponzio said. "I think that moment will
remain in my thoughts for a long time because

"I enjoy seeing and meeting new people

T che heart wants what it wants.
However, the heart is a compli-

Lack of linebackers makes UF an appealing target
By ERIC ESTEBAN
You can call them the four horsemen.
The Gators are heading into spring football with four line-
backers under scholarship, and Coach Urban Meyer and staff
are doing their best to remedy the biggest weakness on the
Freshmen Brandon Siler and Javier Estopinan, sophomore
Earl Everett and junior Todd McCullough are all that remain
from a linebacker corps that, when the injury bug bit, started
walk-on Alvin Butler against Vanderbilt.
Since the beginning-of last year, Channing Crowder opted
for the NFL Draft, Travis Harris' eligibility expired, Taurean
Charles was kicked off the team and Howard Lingard trans-
ferred, leaving UF with a glaring need.
Past recruiting woes have come full circle for the new staff
that now finds itself scrambling for quality and quantity
- with the offer of playing time.
"I'm not scared.of competition, but I know the opportunity
to play early is there at Florida," said Jerome Hayes, ranked the
No. 14 linebacker in the nation by Scout.com.
The Bayonne, N.J., native, who has narrowed his choices to
UF, Penn State and hometown Rutgers, is just one of the many
linebackers around the nation that the coaching staff is working
to bring to the Swamp.
Ryan Stamper, an oral commitment to Auburn, recently
received an in-home visit from both Meyer and defensive
coordinator Charlie Strong. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Stamper
played linebacker at First Coast High in Jacksonville, a tradi-
tional pipeline to UF that has graduated current Gators Mike
McIntosh, Kenneth Tookes and Reggie Lewis.
Stamper, who said he grew up a Gators fan, is scheduled to
visit Gainesville this weekend.
The Gators currently hold oral com-
mitments from Kalvin Baker, a 6-foot,
228-pound linebacker who led the state of
Georgia with 29 sacks his junior year, and
SGerald Williams, a 6-foot-4, 225-pound line-
backer who finished his senior season with
135 tackles (15 for loss), nine sacks and three
Stamper UF will be looking to sign anywhere
between four and six linebackers to shore
up the depth chart.
Oral commitments are non-binding until a national letter-
of-intent is signed on National Signing Day on Feb. 2.

turnovers," Lee said. "We were dominat-.
ing them on the boards and actually play-
ing pretty good defense."
Despite the turnover problems, the
Gators took a 30-29 lead into halftime, but
fell behind by 10 after a 13-2 Volunteer run
in the second. UF, however chiseled away

into overtime, but couldn't account for the

Carolina on Saturday, made 2 three-point-
ers to open overtime and finished with a
Steamn-stcond be-t 22 points behind Scooter
"[Lofton] really hurt us from behind the
arc," Lee said. "For some reason, we didn't
find him behind the three-point line."

WALSH, from page 24
being cleared by doctors until Tuesday. He added that he
had been practicing at full speed and scrimmaging with
his teammates for days.
But despite the apparent readiness, Coach Billy
Donovan substituted Walsh out with seven minutes
to play. Walsh-never returned, even when it seemed
Tennessee was volunteering to quintuple-team
Roberson. Did Walsh want to help him?
"Yeah, but that's not my job," Walsh said. "That's
coach's job, but of course I wanted to be in the
Donovan said he needed to play Walsh because of an
upcoming six-day layoff, but couldn't rely on him because
of his foot.
"Matt's going to be an important guy," Donovan said.
"I hope he can come back from his ankle injury and I think
people would agree."
Until he does, he'll suffer from more than just a sting-
"Losing sucks. Period," Walsh said.
GIRV BALLS, from page 24
mal impact aside, the Gators lose in
the worst ways. At times, the Gators
looked clueless on set plays, with
passes sailing outof bounds.
Then there's losing to teams they
shouldn't lose to, especially with
the SEC in a down year. Take the
Volunteers, for instance. Although, the
writing.was on the wall when looking
at how UF does against Tennessee
- losses at Tennessee in the last two
years have hurt a Gators team that has
had the same nucleus of players.
These are games UF has to win,
because these are the sort of teams UF
will play in the NCAA Tournament.
We all know how that's turned out
the last three years.

Southeastern Conference) lost to
rennessee in overtime, 83-76.
"It's funny how it comes back
around," Roberson said.
Roberson, who carried the
JF offense with consecutive 30-

Vanderbilt, finished a few shots
short, missing three key three-
pointers in overtime.
"I know every time I shoot it,
it's not going to fall," Roberson
"aid "But every time I let it go,
I teel like it's going to go in, and
that one didn't fall for me."
After his SEC Player of the

Gators' undefeated conference

said. "This was a game where

probably not going to get a high
volumee of shots. But when you
look at this game, and David has
only three shots our balance is
not very good at all."
Despite his meager offensive

Al Horford, pulled down 13 re-

advantage on the boards.
