FRIDAY. JANUARY 21. 2005


NATIONAL


Once more, with feeling

By STEPHANIE GARRY m L." '
Alligator Staff Writer t
smgarry@alligator.org ,


President Bush began his sec-
ond term Thursday by promis-
ing to end tyranny and expand
democracy, familiar themes that
resonated from the crowd in
Washington to Gainesville.
The speech wove together the
United States' history of democ-
racy, from the constitutional ideals
of equality to Abraham Lincoln's
liberation of -the slaves, and the
threat posed by terrorism. From
the fall of communism to the ter-
rorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, one
thing has remained, Bush said.
"The survival of liberty in our
land increasingly depends on the
success of liberty in other lands,"
he said. "The best hope for peace
in our world is the expansion of
freedom in all the world."
While Bush broadened the
purpose of freedom to protecting
the United States, in his speech he
also made the sharp distinctions
that have made him- a polarizing
figure.
"We will persistently clarify
the choice before every ruler and
every nation the moral choice
between oppression, which is al-
ways wrong, and freedom, which
is eternally right," he said.
The president's most recent op-
ponent, Massachusetts Sen. John
Kerry, watched the ceremony a
short distance from the podium.
UF senior Windsor Stone was
among the crowd, skipping two
days of school to see the fruits of
her campaigning efforts.
"I wanted to support President
Bush," she said. "He basically
dictated what he had done and
what he would continue to do. I
essentially have supported that
message since I was old enough to
follow politics and make that deci-
sion on my own."
Giving a nod to his detractors,
Bush commented that "this time in

tion parade in front of the White House Thursday in Washington.


history...is an odd time for doubt"
but chose to dwell on the unit-
ing themes in his foreign policy:
democracy, freedom and national
security.
"We have known divisions," he
said. "Yet those divisions do not
define America. We felt the unity
and fellowship of our nation when
freedom came under attack, and
our response came like a single
hand over a single heart."
UF political science professor


Ronald Carpenter noted Bush
did not mention domestic issues,
when the overhaul of social secu-
rity, reforms in immigration law,
taxes and a growing budget deficit
loom over Congress.
"I think that if he were to have
talked about domestic issues, he
would've just heightened contro-
versy," he said.
Bush kept an eye on his legacy,

Vedam indicted


for second time

By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
Alligator Writer
mwinslow@alligator.org

Little more than a month after a judge dismissed murder
charges against him, a grand jury has indicted Praveen Vedam
for a second time in the murder of UF graduate student
Sudheer Reddy Satti.
Though prosecuting attorneys would not
Public disclose what new evidence has emerged in
Safety the case against Vedam, the 18-person jury con-
vened Thursday at the Alachua County Criminal
Courthouse to debate the matter. Just after noon, a
first-degree murder indictment was issued, along with a war-
rant for Vedam's arrest.
However, since Judge Robert Cates' Dec. 10 dismissal of the
initial case, citing insufficient evidence, Vedam, 26, has traveled
back to India to be with his ailing father. His attorney, Robert
Rush, said he does not know if or when his client will return.
"The problem is that he's in India, and we have to cope with
,that," State Attorney Bill Cervone said. "He may come back,
who knows voluntarily, I mean."
If not, the time-consuming extradition process could prove
difficult for the State Attorney's Office, Cervone said.

Politicians, residents and Wal-

at Duvall Elementary School on
Thursday to assess concerns of
East Gainesville residents regard-

Machen weighs in on governor's proposed budget


* THE UF PRESIDENT WANTS MORE
CONTROL OVER FACULTY SALARIES.

By EMILY YEHLE
Alligator Writer
eyehle@alligator.org

In the wake of a budget proposal by
Gov. Jeb Bush that would raise in-state
tuition and cut some UF grants, the uni-
versity's president emphasized to state
legislators Thursday that UF must be given
more control of its affairs.
At the Alachua County Legislative
Delegation, UF President Bernie Machen
and local officials spent the afternoon ad-
dressing their concerns and requests to
state Sen. Rod Smith (D-Gainesville) and
four state representatives.
Money for faculty and staff raises


ranked first on Machen's priority list.
"Bonuses are great, but it's the base that
people build their budgets off of," he told
the delegation at the Kirkpatrick Criminal
Justice Center.
Machen emphasized the need for $39
million in funds to be used at the discre-
tion of the UF Board of Trustees, who then
could address issues such as salaries, ben-
efit increases and enrollment growth.
Between $11 million and $13 million of
that money would be used for faculty and
staff raises, said Jane Adams, vice presi-
dent of university relations.
But salary raises were only one aspect of
university control that Machen discussed
at the hearing. The UF Board of Trustees
should also control tuition policy, he said.
Although the budget proposal includes
a 7.5 percent limit on raising in-state un-
dergraduate tuition, it also indicates that


public universities will have control over
graduate and out-of-state undergradu-
ate tuition a "good first step," Machen
said.
However, while legislators say they sup-
port devolution, or shifting more control to
universities, it is being
done slowly, he said.
Smith agreed.
"We can't seem to
make up our mind. Are
we fish or fowl?" he said.
"If we're doing devolu-
tion, it needs to be done."
Machen also discussed
his concern about how
Shands could be affected by Bush's goal
to reform Medicaid and lower its costs to
the state. Currently, Medicaid helps hos-
pitals pay for underinsured or uninsured
patients.


Smith added, "We can't do it in a way
that leaves Shands in a weaker position."
As for Bush's budget proposal as a
whole, Machen said that "parts of it look
good," including a $133 million allotment
for matching private donations to public
universities statewide.
With such a "significant amount," the
chance of the legislature fulfilling UF's
request for $27 million in matching funds
looks good, Adams said.
"We feel fairly optimistic," she said.
After Machen finished addressing the
delegation, Smith applauded him on his
push to improve UF.
"We congratulate you in being able to
put together a real effort," Smith said.
Also attending were Reps. Ed Jennings
Jr. (D-Gainesville), Larry Cretul (R-Ocala);
Will Kendrick (D- Carrabelle) and Dwight
Stansel (D-Live Oak).

STUDENT LIFE

SG committee seeks to make Gainesville a 24-hour city


By BRIAN HAGEN
Alligator Writer
bhagen@alligator.org

Liquor-licensed .establishments in
Gainesville may stay open until 3 a.m. if
Student Government's Safety and Fair
Entertainment Committee can convince the
city's safety committee.
Former Student Senate President Joe
Goldberg, now serving as executive direc-
tor of SAFE, presented his group's proposal
for changing the 2 a.m. closing time in the
Gainesville Public Safety Committee meeting
Thursday morning.
"We're not trying to recreate the abuses of
the rave era," Kate Wallace, .S~FE's director


of public relations, said. "There's definitely a
need to control abuse."
Under SAFE's proposal, alcohol still
would stop flowing at 2-a.m. The extra hour
would allow patrons to sober up and spread
out the rush at closing time.
Also present at the meeting were commis-
sioners Tony Domenech and Ed Braddy and
GPD Police Chief Norman Botsford.
SAFE next will compose a written pro-
posal of its plan, including substance abuse-
related crime statistics as requested by the
Public Safety Committee. The committee
meets monthly, and it may take several meet-
ings to win their approval.
When the committee accepts the new
-rL entatii'ri it will be sent to.the Gainesville


City Commission with their recommendation
to pass or not pass it. The City Commission
will render the final decision.
"The main thing we're. pushing
here is safety."
Joe Goldberg
Former Student Senate President


When Florida passed a 1997 bill ordering
all businesses with liquor licenses to shut
down at 2 a.m., Gainesville was one of a few
cities that kept its bars open until 4 a.m. and
became the nexus of a large rave scene, which
brought its accompanying problems to the
downtown area. .p 0


The rave ordinance was introduced in
1999, aligning Gainesville in requiring busi-
nesses with liquor licenses to close at 2 a.m.
"The main thing we're pushing here is
safety," Goldberg said.
"When bars close, people go to private
parties. We'd like to have students being
safer, enjoying themselves in public settings
where there are more police around."
The proposed later closing time would al-
low students with night jobs to go out after
they got off work, generating extra business
for bars that stay open, Wallace said.
No bar owners have taken an official
stance on the issue yet, Goldberg said.
"We're moving towards a more 24-hour
city," Goldberg said.

Corporate criminal relates hard lesson to students


* AT ONE TIME, WALT PAVLO MADE
MILLIONS BY ILLEGALLY ERASING
COMPANIES' DEBT.

By NEIL HUGHES
Alligator Writer
nhughes@alligator.drg

Students had the opportunity Thursday
to learn about business ethics from a white-
collar criminal.
"Kind of strange that I would be teaching
ethics, right?" Walt Pavlo joked.
Pavlo recounted how he and an accom-
plice stole $6 million from "tier-three," or
smaller-scale, companies who did business


in long distance with his former employer,
MCI.
Tier-three customers are high-risk busi-
nesses that offer potentially high profits for
major corporations, such as MCI.
The problem, Pavlo said, was that tier-
three companies stopped paying their bills.
Pavlo, who worked in collections, said
that in.1995 he wrote his superiors a memo
indicating his department's debt totaled
$180 million. Days later, a reply came insist-
ing the debt actually was at $15 million.
"How am I ever going to get out of this
mess?" Pavlo said he asked at the time.
"What do they want me to do? They never
told me to cheat."
Frustrated with what he saw as an im-


possible task, Pavlo said he was approached
by someone with a scheme to get a piece of
the multi-billion dollar MCI pie.
Pavlo's accomplice would tell tier-three
companies that he would pay off their debt,
in exchange for $250,000 and. a 25 percent
share of their companies.
On But, Pavlo simply erased the
Campus debt, while he and his partner
collected $6 million in a bank
account in the Cayman Islands.
"Nobody ever asked me [about the
debt]," he said. "You know how I would
have been busted? By saying 'Hey, can I see
a copy of that check?' Nobody questions
good news."
Good news, Pavlo told the students, is


what everyone wants to hear not failure.
The guilt became too much for Pavlo,
who, at the time, was taking Prozac and
drinking excessively. He finally quit MCI,
was eventually caught and then faced 41
months in jail.
"I was petrified at what I had done," he
said. "I wanted to be caught. I wanted this
madness to end."
After helping the FBI, he was released
after 24 months in June 2003.
Pavlo said he wishes he'd had the cour-
age to stand up and tell the truth, and en-
couraged students to do the same.
"Don't be afraid of failure," he said.
"Don't be afraid of losing your job for say-
ing something is wrong."


FACULTY SENATE


UF gets new office


By JEFF SIRMONS
Alligator Writer
jsirmons@alligator.org

UF's Faculty Senate unani-
mously voted Thursday to create
an Office of Sustainability, which
will serve as a watchdog for envi-
ronmental issues on campus.
"The new Office of
Sustainability will help UF focus
on ways to stay green," said Pierre
Ramond, chairman of the Senate.
The new office is supported.
by Student Government, which
worked with former UF President
Charles Young to start a sustain-
ability task force, which evertu-
ally led to the vote for the office.
The Faculty Senate also voted
to change the name of the exercise
and sports sciences degree to ap-
plied physiology and kinesiology.
"The name change lets people
know we're more involved with
the body than just sports," said
Lauren Schneider, a student in
the newly named degree. "Also,
when we go for interviews, it'll
look much more professional."
Other issues brought up at
the meeting include revisions of
the faculty constitution, which


provides no legal protection for
faculty under review for problems
such as plagiarism.
"Right now, faculty can be
guilty until proven innocent, and
could be suspended without pay
while under review," said Tim
Taylor, a faculty senator. "We're
trying to change that t6 innocent
until proven
guilty."
Whether to
create a new
S computer sci-
ence degree in
the College of
Engineering
Tisher and a depart-
ment of urology in the College
of Medicine, will be.decided in
February's Senate meeting.
"Urology is a gaping hole in
our College of Medicine right
now," said C. Craig Tisher, dean
of the College of Medicine. "If we
form a department, we will attract
better faculty."
The department formation will
cost about $4 million.
"We have money already set
aside for this upgrade," Tisher
said.

Study finds intelligent women have more trouble marrying


Also concludes men have opposite problem


By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
dcohen@alligator.org

Highly successful women may have more
trouble finding Mr. Right, according to a re-
cent study.
"Powerful women are at a distinct dis-
advantage in the marriage market," said
researcher Stephanie Brown of the University
of Michigan. "Men may prefer to marry less-
accomplished women."
Brown said this is because men believe
women in important jobs are more likely to
cheat.
"Female infidelity is a severe reproductive
threat to males only when (emotional) invest-
ment is high," Brown said. "A preference for
subordinate partners may provide adaptive
benefits to males in the context of only long-
term, investing relationships not one-night
stands."
The study was conducted on 328 under-


graduate students.
Constance L. Shehan, UF professor of soci-
ology, echoed Brown's findings.
"Very well-educated women are less apt to
get married," Shehan said. "Almost half of the
labor market is now women, and educational
attainment is higher in women as more of
them enter college."
Shehan noted that typically, the balance
of power in a relationship "leans toward
the male," but added that "men who marry
high-achieving women receive high economic
benefits."
The economic incentive for women to get
married "may be completely gone," Shehan
added.
Men may think women in high-paying jobs
are more apt to cheat on them because "it's a
matter of opportunity."
"Women in high-paying jobs are most
likely surrounded by high-status men,"
Shehan said.
In recent films such as -"Spanglish" and


"Love Actually," men pursue their secretaries
and housekeepers, even though some of the
women do not speak English. Shehan is skep-
tical about the movies' realistic, applications.
"Everyone in this environment
tends to be fairly well-educated
and more accepting of highly suc-
cessful women."
Michael Murphy
UF clinical associate professor

"In real life, people tend to be much more
matched and homogeneous,"said Shehan.
A British study found correlating results.
According to a study conducted by four
British universities, for every 16-point rise in a
man's IQ, he is 35 percent more likely to marry,
while for women the opposite is true every
16-point increase in IQ results in a 40-percent
decrease in likelihood of getting married.
There is a possibility that relationship rival-
ry can result in violence and suppression, ac-


cording to Michael Murphy, UF clinical associ-
ate professor and staff psychologist. "There is
an interesting balance in relationships regard-
ing power," Murphy said. "Some men feel
threatened by women in high-paying jobs or
advanced academic programs, especially men
with more traditional backgrounds."
However, Murphy was quick to defend
UF. "Everyone in this environment tends to
be fairly well-educated and more accepting of
highly successful women," he said.
But Murphy did not dismiss the possibility
that relationship rivalry can cause men to try
to control or devalue women.
"In the population at the university, there is
no question that can happen," Murphy said.
Shehan did not pass judgment on UF ei-
ther, saying she believes the men and women
of the UF community exhibit more egalitarian-
ism and equality toward each other.
In keeping with that sentiment, Shehan en-
couraged high-achieving women to "look for
someone with the same amount of education"
because "there would be a better chance of a
successful relationship."

Curious George for Grandma
Beland wanted more than just
survival, he wanted to improve the
quality of life of the elderly and
disabled, and researched innovative
ways to make them happier.
"The goal of therapeutic recre-
ation is to get the disabled or elderly
to somehow do what they used to
enjoy doing," Beland said. "To do
this, you must creatively think of
ways to change the rules or slightly
alter the way the game is played."
One such approach Beland is
researching is the positive effect of
reading.
"Right now, I'm reading chil-
dren's books to the elderly," Beland
said. "Their typical reaction is enjoy-
ment, and most want to read more
of these books because, believe it or
not, they connect to these books."
The elderly now are positively
portrayed in children's books, un-
like they were in the 1970s, when
they were predominantly shown as
stem disciplinarians, Beland said.
"In recent children's books, the
elderly are shown as problem solv-
ers, and those who pass on impor-
tant family heritage," Beland said.
"Naturally, they gravitate toward
that image."
Beland also teaches his students
how to properly read to the elderly.
"Some people would think this
type of therapy isn't age-appro-
priate, but if you treat them with
respect, like he does, they wouldn't
think it demeaning," Bemabei said.

promised his students that he would
teach only the newest information,
most of which is obtained through
these conferences.
"He doesn't follow any guide-
lines in a book," Rodriguez said.
"Instead, he uses real-life experi-
ences combined with brand-new
facts relevant to the field."
After serving in an Army medi-
cal detachment during the Vietnam
conflict, Beland worked as a psychi-
atric and recreational therapist for
three years before entering graduate
school. He's never regretted his de-
cision to teach in college.
"I've always enjoyed teaching
because I've always enjoyed being
a student," Beland said. "I'm always
willing to learn, and what better
place than a great college."
There were times, though, when
Beland had trouble connecting to
his students. During his first year
teaching at UF, Beland was forced
to cancel a class meeting because he
had to attend a workshop.
"It visibly bothered me when the
entire class cheered this announce-
ment," Beland said. "I now under-
stand why students like having
days off from class, but at that time,
it really got to me."
Beland could not think of any
drawbacks to his award-winning
teaching career, which has won him
14 teaching awards, all from the
department of tourism, recreation
and sport management, the College
of Health and Human Performance,
* and the department of gerontology.

City rats settle down in Gainesville neighborhood


* THE AREA, JUST NORTH OF CAM-
PUS, HAS MANY STUDENT RENTERS.

By MEAGAN PARRADO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Black Acres residents have a new neighbor
in town the city rat.
Black Acres consists of the neighborhoods
north of University Avenue, west of 26th Street
and east of 34th Street. Residents are mainly
homeowners, but in recent years there has
been a rising number of student rentals.
According to a notice issued by the Black
Acres/Black Pines Neighborhood Association,
there is also a rising population of rats. Since
September, at least 10 homes have sought the


assistance of Critter Control to help with the
infestation.
Neighborhood associatioinmember Deanna
Carpenter said the association believes gar-
bage left out by some of the neighbors, mainly
student rentersis the cause.
"Garbage cans are spilled and not picked
up, and pizza boxes are left on the floor next to
the cans," Carpenter said.
Joe Felegi of Critter Control said garbage
may not be the only cause, but enough gar-
bage left out in the open can lead to an infesta-
tion.
"Rats are common, especially through
Florida," he said. "But if you take away the
food source, you have less chance of the rats
being there."
Felegi suggested residents trim hardwood


trees, keep yards well manicured, and keep
the garbage cleaned up and well contained.
Holes and spaces in the structure of the resi-
dences provide easy access for rats to move in
and make a home of their own.
"Removal is the dirty part
Student traps need to be set and all'
possible entry points sealed,"
he said.
The neighborhood associa-
tion will take their case to the city Code and
Regulations Board early next week.
Michael Wohl, city code enforcement offi-
cer, said, "The first thing the association can do
is make the city aware. If they can prove there
is an epidemic, the city will address it."
Black Acres resident and UF sophomore
Kelly Perona also experienced problems with


the rats. They have infested her yard made
their way into her house, she said.
Still, Perona does not see student renters as
the problem.
"As a UF student, I don't think it is any
more our fault than it is our neighbor's, who
is a homeowner," Perona said.
. Carpenter said the neighborhood asso-
ciation wants a united neighborhood-- hom-
eowners and students alike. Respect of one
another's property is key, she said.
"When students rent in an area that is a
family neighborhood, such as Black Acres
basically is, they should understand they
are going to be responsible for some things
that maybe they wouldn't be responsible -for
in a neighborhood that has more students,"
Carpenter said.

Editorial
Who left the air conditioner on?
Someone seems to have forgotten that this is Florida;
weather this cold only is supposed to come during the
last couple weeks of December, so we can enjoy a sweat-
free holiday season before returning to the furnace we call
Gainesville.
Here at the Department of Darts & Laurels, we have our
space heaters cranked full blast to keep the frigid weather
from frosting our computer screens.
But we won't let-that dampen our spirits.
Now we have an excuse to wear those full-length
fur coats we've had stashed away since we went to that
Halloween party as pimps last year.
On second thought, anything made of fur probably is a
bad idea with all of the activists we've got running around
here.
As we try to figure out a better way to beat the cold,
bundle up, find a warm body and snuggle up to this week's
edition of...



Darts & Laurels

Because it's hard to concentrate on anything else while
our teeth are chattering, we shakily hand over a where-the-
heck-were-you-at-Christmas DART to Old Man Winter for
suddenly dropping the thermostat on us a month too late.
It looks like even nature occasionally has a package arrive
late because of the holiday shipping crush.
Hoping we don't.have to take out a loan to pay our heat-
ing bill, we toss a how-the-heck-was-that-our-fault DART
to Florida Power & Light and Progress Energy Florida, the
state's largest electric utilities, which seek to have custom-
ers chip in $606 million over the next couple of years to re-
plenish funds used for repairs after last year's hurricanes.
Sorry you didn't have enough disaster insurance, but
don't take it out on us.
Since we've spent many of these cold evenings trying
to find something other than reality shows on TV, we
give a not-even-theme-parks-are-safe-anymore DART to
Universal Studios for creating an audience-participation
attraction based on "Fear Factor."
Of course, nothing says family fun like watching mom
eat cow brains while little sis' lounges in a bathtub full of
tarantulas and scorpions.
Because we're sure all students have been using their
newfound stay-at-home time to kept abreast of cam-
pus politics, we bestow a welcome-to-2005 LAUREL to
Student Government technology cabinet director Adam
Roberts for pushing for an SG Web site that actually, you
know, works.
Finally, as we end our quest to find an alternative way
to keep warm, we send a that's-what-we're-talking-about
LAUREL to the British Government for passing legislation
that will allow some pubs to stay open 24 hours.
Who needs central air when you can warm up the way
nature' intended by packing shoulder-to-shoulder into
dark, closed-in spaces and having drinks that burn on the
way down?
Prime Minister Tony Blair defended the legislation from
naysayers, asserting later hours will reduce alcohol-related
crime by giving pub-goers time to sober up.
I hope the Gainesville City Commission is taking notes.
A couple of extra hours in one of the many co-ed-filled
bars certainly would give us the relief we need from the
cold.
Or at least help us find that warm body.

Guest column

Bush Social Security plan won't work


don't want to write about politics. Really; I don't.
Writing about politics is seldom fun, usually boring
and predictably uncreative. Any goon off the street
with the ability to stomach CNN or FOX News for 15
minutes can string a few words together and call himself
a political commentator. There are scores of these kinds of
instant experts out there partisan hacks musing about
subjects they truly don't understand and I really don't
want to be one of them. Writers like this do nothing to
further the political discourse merely by spewing rhetoric
straight from Republican or Democratic talking points.
Unfortunately, writing about politics occasionally is
unavoidable. The parties and the media often inflate the
importance of an issue until it's as big as a pinata, and
everyone lines up to take a crack at it. I'm not saying this
sort of attention always is undeserved, but there always
will be hot-button issues. Abortion gets this treatment
all the time, as gay marriage recently has. However, the
most pressing issues ones that may actually result in
legislation being passed in Congress often don't get the
consideration they deserve. These are topics that aren't
nearly as fun to debate with your friends, so you don't
hear about them as much. Right now, Social Security is
one of those issues. While I don't enjoy writing about
politics, sometimes one side's logic makes so much sense
it has to be heard.
I can see the thought bubble that formed over your
head just a second ago. "Social Security doesn't affect me
yet. Who cares?" Well, yes and no. While current UF stu-
dents won't be able to reap the benefits of Social Security
for another 50 years or so, President Bush wants.to screw
the system up and charge you $2 trillion for doing it. It's
called "privatization," and it's his newest bad idea.
Social Security essentially is welfare for old people, a
safety net for those who otherwise might live in poverty.
Republicans oppose this, claiming it eliminates the incen-
tive to work and save and gives the government too much


S money to spend. Bush essentially
wants to replace these government-
guaranteed benefits with private
'."B" "- accounts that will be subject'to the
whims of the stock market, turning
Social Security into a giant 401(k).
Andrew Meyer Before I even begin to espouse why
Uncommon Sense this is a horrible idea, I first have to
letters@alligator.org point out that Los Angeles Times
editor Michael Kinsley has written
a logical proof that assures privati-
zation will fail. You can find it at www.latimes.com.
Bush's impetus for destroying. Social Security is his
claim the program is on the verge of collapse. This is
false. The Congressional Budget Office says the Social
Security trust fund won't run out until 2052, if ever, at
which point Social Security would still pay out 80 percent
benefits. The reason President Bush wants to dismantle
Social Security is not because the system isn't working,
but because Republicans are fundamentally opposed to
any kind of redistribution. They claim privatization will
offer better returns, but this too is false.
Economics professor Paul Krugman said, "The only
possible way that stock returns can be high enough to
make privatization work is if the U.S. economy grows
at 3 to 4 percent a year for the next 50 years. But Social
Security's own trustees expect the economy's growth rate
to slow to 1.8 percent. If that happens if their own as-
sumptions are correct then privatization would be a
disaster. And if that doesn't happen if the economy
continues to grow at'a steady rate then the trust fund
is good for the rest of the century, and we don't need
privatization."
See how boring that was?

Letters to the Editor
Editorial harmful to legitimate practice
Editor: Yesterday's editorial on the pro-
posed chiropractic school at FSU was ir-
responsibleand dangerous. Not only does
it misrepresent the "scientific community
as a whole," but also it constitutes libel
against a legitimate profession that has
healed millions despite the best efforts of
political lobbies to restrict the practice of
medicine to drugs and surgery.
Further, any legitimate concerns about
cronyism that were raised lose credibil-
ity by appearing after a blatantly misin-
formed and unjustified opinion.
FSU only can benefit from including
complementary modalities to its admitted-
ly second-tier medical school, and Florida
will need many thousand more chiroprac-
tors to alleviate the sufferings of its grow-
ing and increasingly aged populace. The
true threat to academic integrity would be
to permit such a lack to go unaddressed.
There already are a number of respect-
ed private colleges of chiropractics, and
the state grants chiropractors privileges to
admit to hospitals and to prescribe drugs
similar to those for licensed MDs.
Most recent science is neutral or fa-
vorable, and the chiropractic profession
has worked very hard to restrict- itself to


well-defined physiological modalities.
The associations that resist chiropractics
do so because of a perceived threat to
their methods, territories, and profits; the
American Medical Association even has
lost an antitrust action on this account. It
is therefore not surprising to find doctors
ganging up on any advance of the art.
While the trustees and governors may
rightly oppose encroachment on their
political and fiscal authority by the legis-
latureand it is surely questionable for any
individual state representative to secure
such pork-barrel funding for a pet project,
these concerns are undermined by a fren-
zied reaction to chiropractics as pseudo-
science. The resulting furor also obscures
the very real crises in health care and
education that are not being adequately
addressed at the university or state level
- situations that, while not laughable, are
at least as damaging to the state's reputa-
tion as a botched election or a chiropractic
school.
Chiropractics, as I know from fifteen
years of personal experience, works.
Without it I, and millions like myself,
would be in constant pain or addicted to
opiates. Chiropractors deserve respect or
at least honest consideration.


I hope it doesn't take .an accident or a
lifetime of spinal degeneration to prove it.
The joke is on you.

Photo caption term was inappropriate
Editor: Soror-a-whore [photo caption
from Wednesday's Alligator].
Brilliant.
-The only problem with printing that
picture -and then reemphasizing your li-
belous remarks in the caption is that you
placed it on the front page. I could laugh
off a picture like this simply as childish
if it were in the editorial section, but you
unfathomably placed it among your sup-
posedly factual news.
_.Would you see anything wrong about
printing a picture of two sorority girls
writing on a wall, "'GDI's don't get laid?"
Or, better yet, why don't you run a photo
of Klansmen writing on a wooden cross
and type the "N word" in the caption?'
A blunder like this just solidifies my
opinion the Alligator is written by a bunch
of teenagers who wouldn't know news-
paper ethics if they were sleeping with
it. Apparently, you're not sleeping with


anything.

Genders are different, but in a good way
Editor: Contrary to what the author of
the editorial "Natural bias" proclaims,
there are inherent biological differences
between the sexes. Men's and women's
minds operate differently from each other
in many ways. For example, women tend
to be superior to men at reading, per-
ceiving and interpreting body language.
Women, as a whole, also have better
peripheral vision ard tend not to be as
narrowly focused on one thing at a time as
men are. Summers merely was raising the
idea that men might be genetically differ-
ent to women in a way that allows them to
excel in areas like math and science.
What's wrong with that?
Of course men and women are biologi-
cally different. Thank God we are, because
we wouldn't have lasted as long as we
have if we didn't have different skill sets
to draw upon to ensure our survival. Plus,
it makes life a whole lot more interesting.

Campus ceremony kicks off Black History Month


* THE UPCOMING MONTH WILL FEA-
TURE TOLERANCE-THEMED EVENTS.

By LINDSAY TAULBEE
Alligator Writer
Itaulbee@alligator.org

Black History Month kicks off tonight,
setting the stage for a month of speak-
ers, forums and other events encouraging
students to embrace different cultures and


people.
The opening ceremony is scheduled
to begin at 9 p.m. in the Reitz Union
Ballroom and will feature speakers and
student performances.
"Regardless of your skin color, this is
history," said Elda Auxiliare, director of
events for Black History Month. She said
she hopes the month's events will reach all
types of people.
The Black Student Union is coordinat-


ing Black History Month at UF, and other
campus organizations are co-sponsoring
some of the events.
Saturday, the third
Multicultural annual Black Student
Affairs Leadership Conference
is scheduled to begin at
9 a.m. in the Emerson Alumni Hall. The
conference will feature workshops and
speakers and is open to all students.
It was created in honor of James E.


Scott, former vice president of Student
Affairs, after his death, Auxiliare said.
"He always wanted to do a conference
of that magnitude," she said.
Other scheduled events include forums,
speeches and- concerts. Afeni Shakur,
mother of the late rapper Tupac Shakur,
and actress Jasmine Guy will speak in
February. J.L. King, author of the book
"On the Down Low," also will speak.
Black History Month ends Feb. 24.

Protesters voice presidential qualms

with an inaugural address more presidential
than his first, Carpenter said.
"I think by having that mission in the world,
he has set out a very lofty, noble goal for which
he certainly can not be faulted," Carpenter
said.
Hunter Williams, former president of .the
College Republicans, thought the speech effec-
tively ended the tumult of Bush's first term, with
its economic recession and terrorist attacks.
"That's now behind us," Williams said.
"We're looking forward to peace and prosper-
ity."
Though Bush avoided it in his speech, Social
Security reform should be an important issue for
college students, since they'll be the ones pay-
ing into it without benefiting when they retire,
Williams said.
"I really hope that the reform of Social
Security goes through," he said. "We're looking
to get screwed over big time when it comes time
for us to retire."
Though Bush's second election which he
called a mandate contrasted from the dis-
puted election of 2000, hundreds of protesters
lined the street his motorcade traveled before
the swearing-in, accusing him of war crimes and


being "the worst president ever."
In Gainesville, about 30 demonstrators
echoed that theme as they marched from the
Levin College of Law to the corner of University
Avenue and 13th Street.
Third-year law student Michael Eatross
helped organize the noon protest to coincide
with the inaugural address.
"We will persistently clarify the choice
before every ruler and every nation -
the moral choice between oppression,
which is always wrong, and freedom,
which is eternally right."
George W. Bush
U.S. president

"The current administration, in our opinion,
went to war in Iraq on fabricated evidence," he
said.
Ken Angell, a second-year law student also
protested, but cited questionable incidents at
the Ohio polls as his motivation.
"There were some passing cars today that
told us to get over it, that our side lost," Angell
said. "I'd have to say that we all lost."

case is misguided and questioned
whether the prosecution had un-
covered new evidence.
"I certainly have requested
of the- state that if they have any
new evidence, to let me see what
they've got," Rush said. "What do
they have that's new? What is it, se-
cret? We don't have secret evidence
in the United States that's what
they have in totalitarian countries.
So, what evidence do they have?
Let's see it because I don't see
anything new, and I'm not aware
of anything new developing a year
after the case was opened."
Satti, 24, was found dead Jan. 4,
2004 in his Maguire Village apart-
.ment, stabbed more than 30 times.
Not 10 days after he helped.
organize a memorial service for
his slain friend and former room-
mate, Vedam was arrested Jan. 22
for grand theft when University


Police discovered Satti's missing
Dell Inspiron laptop computer
was used at Vedam's workplace,
Nanoptics Inc.
Later, pieces of Satti's com-
puter were recovered within a
warehouse near Nanoptics, and its
case was found in an air duct at the
company with a mixture of blood
on it. Some of the blood matched
Satti's DNA
profile.
Vedam was
charged with
the first-degree
murder of Satti
on Feb. 18. Such
charges carry
Vedam a sentence of
either life im-
prisonment or death.
State Attorney's Office spokes-
man Spencer Mann said that if and
when Vedam is tried, prosecutors
would not seek the death penalty.
But evidence against Vedam
always has been circumstantial,
Rush said.
"Let's get some fundamentals,"
Rush said. "[In deposition testimo-
ny, a UPD officer] said that he was
convinced that the person who
did the stabbing was left-handed,
and Mr. Vedam is right-handed.
I would like to know if that was
presented to the grand jury."


Neglected area wary of change

sentiment of those worried over
traffic problems.
"A shortcut is a shortcut,"
Sica said. -"Nothing you can do
will stop someone from taking a
shortcut."
Nate Mcallister chided his fel-
low residents on their reluctance
to support plans for a Wal-Mart.
"I think we should trust in
elected officials to do the right
job," Mcallister said. "You com-
plain about having to go to the
West for shopping; now you
complain about a Wal-Mart on
12th Avenue. It's like you com-
plain in the winter it's too cold
and in the summer it's too hot."
Carpenter's message was that
this session was simply to gauge
the sentiment of the crowd.
"I want you to trust us; if you
hear us make a promise and it's
not in writing, feel free to raise
your hand," Carpenter said.
- When the open forum ended,


Alachua County Commissioner
Rodney Long implored residents
to do what was right for East
Gainesville.
"This side of town has been
left in the dark ages, and now
someone wants to come and put
a business in," Long said. "Let's
not be afraid of change. Let's
hold developers accountable."
State Rep. Ed Jennings Jr., (D-
Gainesville), called attention to
a darker cloud behind the silver
lining.
"You know what Wal-Mart is
-proposing. What you don't'know
is what could go into that area,"
Jennings said.
He argued Wal-Mart was better
than more "affordable housing."
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan
closed the evening.
"This site has already been
zoned for commercial develop-
ment; it would be very hard to
kill it," Hanrahan said. "I think
we should go forward with this
site but with a long list of what
we want.' -

ADMINISTRATION

UF investment corporation awaits positive returns


By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
smgarry@alligator.org

If imitation is the .sincerest
form of flattery, then UF officials
have nothing but praise for Duke,
Yale and the University of North
Carolina.
UF officials created an invest-
ment corporation in the style of
these top schools after deciding
that UF's $800 million endowment
had outgrown its management.
They even snagged a former Duke
investment manage?- to head the
company.


"[Duke has] historically been
one of the Top 3 endowments in the
country, and we're trying to mirror
their success," said Peter Landauer,
chief operating officer of the corpo-
ration and investment manager at
the UF Foundation.
The corporation now handles-the
endowfients of the UF Foundation,
the Research Foundation and the
Athletic Association, plus money
waiting to be used by the univer-
sity, totaling more than $1 billion.
Since the goal is to spend only what
the endowment generates, the
more the corporation's investments
return, the more the university can


spend on professorships and schol-
arships.
"The university decided...that
we needed more full-time manage-
ment for our investments," said
Paul Robell, UF's vice president for
development and alumni affairs.
"Other universities were doing bet-
ter than we were in terms of invest-
ment returns."
The company recently celebrat-
ed its six-month mark with invest-
ment returns of 7.5 percent on the
endowment. That's slightly higher
than the 7 percent benchmark typi-
cally used.


The risk, Landauer said, is if the
corporation happens to hire bad
investment managers.
"The university decided...
that we needed more full-
time management for our
investments."
Paul Robell
UF vice president

"We're not sitting on a billion
dollars here and picking stocks,"
he said, adding the managers will


choose where to invest.
"We're well diversified. That's
how we try and minimize the risk."
Until the company reaches its
first birthday, its board of directors
and prospective donors won't be
able to judge how well the endow-
ment is performing compared to
other universities, but Robell was
hopeful that having a separate
entity to invest it will encourage
donors to give to the university.
"I think it'll be very much of an
attraction for potential donors,"
Robell said. "You've got to have a
performance record."


Wall paints diverse picture


By LINDSAY TAULBEE
Alligator Writer
Itaulbee@alligator.org

Armed with paintbrushes and markers,
some students are combating stereotypes while
turning heads and raising eyebrows.
Since Monday, the Inter-Residence Hall
Association's Writing on the Wall Project has en-
couraged students walking through Turlington
Plaza to paint cinderblocks with the slurs and
generalizations they have encountered.
Today is the last day to contribute a block for
the wall.
The cinderblocks articulate stereotypes of
all kinds. "Hypocritical Christians," "Spic,"
"Nerd," "All blacks look the same," and "Frat
guys only want 1 thing," read just a few.
Next week, a mason will use the blocks to
construct a wall 40 feet long and nine feet high
on the Plaza of the Americas. The wall will be
torn down Friday, symbolizing the destruction
of barriers, said Kevin Parekh, a member of the
IRHA project committee.


"It's not only a mental thing, but physical
also," he said.
Parekh said students have responded well
to the project. Some initially are offended by the
slurs, he said, but once the concept of the project
is explained, most are impressed.
Ryan Feinberg, an environmental science
senior, painted two bricks, for the wall.
One reads, "10 billion animals
On slaughtered for food each year."
Campus "I think it's a good way to raise
awareness," he said.
While some of the stereotypes
represented on the bricks are not always ex-
plicitly stated, they still exist under th6 surface
in people's mentalities, and it is important to
remind people of that, he said.
"And it's a very c atiitve and artistic and
visual way to do it, I think," he said.
UF Student Body Vice President Jennifer
Puckett created the project in 2002. At the time,
she was president of the Inter-Residence Hall
Association, and hoped the project would show
students how diversity affects everyone.


UF RESEARCH

Study bites
* THE DISCOVERY MAY HELP
CONTROL DISEASE SPREAD.

By LAUREN RESSLER
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF researchers are one step
closer to controlling the popula-
tion and dangers of disease-bear-
ing mosquitoes, after discovering a
group of nutrient amino acid trans-
porters in the gut of a mosquito.
By affecting -the way mosquito
cells absorb nutrients, scientists
hope to block these nutrients from
being passed on to other species
such as humans.
"Florida mosquitoes are a big
problem," said Dmitri Boudko, as-
sistant professor at UF's Whitney
Laboratory for Marine: Bioscience
and lead author of the study.
"Based on this study, we can try to
control populations of mosquitoes
and make control safe for other
species."
Many of the insecticides devel-
oped to reduce mosquitoes, such as


mosquitoes
DDT, not only act on a mosquito's
nervous system but also on those
of humans. These insecticides also
negatively influence the environ-
ment.
Other insecticides such as mos-
quito toxins are costly to manufac-
ture or, like vaccinations, only target
one main insect-borne disease.
Boudko said the discovery will
lead to more sophisticated strategies
to protect humans and agriculture
through cheaper, safer and more en-
vironmentally friendly means:
"A mosquito is very efficient,"
Boudko said. "They can increase
their body weight by 300 times in a
few days."
Because of a mosquito's efficien-
cy, Boudko said a genetic approach
must be taken to combat against
the insect's hazards. By targeting a
mosquito's amino acid transporters
and inhibiting its genetic make-up,
UF researchers hope to create more
efficient pest-control tactics.

Volunteer fair encourages student philanthropy


By DAN ONEY
Alligator Contributing Writer


Students turned out in droves to the
Volunteer Organization Fair at the Reitz
Union Colonnade on Thursday.
The fair was organized by UF's Office
of Community Service. The OCS shares
partnerships with nearly 200 volunteer
organizations from around Gainesville, as
well as chapters of national organizations.
Participating groups ranged from the local
Teen Volunteer Network to the nationally
renowned Habitat for Humanity.


"We're basically trying to connect
students with organizations that interest
them," said Megan Hoot of OCS. "At the
fair, students can browse through, learn
about and connect with groups that inter-
est them."
Turnout, which reached, the thousands
according to the OCS, was higher than
prior volunteer fairs. due to the tsunami
that hit Southeast Asia.
"With any disaster, there is a height-
ened sense of community awareness,"
Hoot said. "Between 10 percent and 15
percent of campus volunteers each year.


"We're basically trying to connect
students with organizations that
interest them."
Megan Hoot
UF Office of Community Service

We just hope to build upon and expand
that great tradition."
"I was just walking by," advertising
senior Naomi Celmo said, "and wanted
to see what other volunteer opportunities
were out there. I always figured I should
share with other people."


Celmo met Sharonelle Astorga of the
Big Brothers Big Sisters program.
"The one-on-one mentoring program
allows volunteers to feel like they've
helped someone. They feel like they are
truly giving back," Astorga said.
The Boggy Creek Camp, a branch of the
Hole in the Wall Gang, sent its representa-
tives to find volunteers to help chronically ill
children in weekend or weeklong camps.
"The kids are really inspirational,"
said camp representative Katie Rozofsky.
"They are happy just to enjoy life. It is re-
ally magical."

WOMAN STABBED IN BRAWL
OVER MAN: A fight between two
women over the same man led to
stitches for one and jail time for the
other Thursday afternoon.
Prompted by a phone call from
Markesha Mulberry, 21, to "fight"
over Leon Watkins, Nicole Shaw,
24, drove to a residence at 2216
N.E. 181 Place, located in unincor-
porated Alachua County, Alachua
County Sheriff's Office spokesman
Lt. Jim Troiano said.
Once there, Shaw drew a knife,
stabbing Mulberry repeatedly in
the upper torso. It was only when
witnesses and a male companion
traveling with Shaw intervened
that the attacker was subdued,
Troiano said.
Shaw then fled to the Lake
Butler area, where she was appre-
hended by Union County Police.
Shaw has been charged with
aggravated battery with a deadly
weapon.
Mulberry's injuries are not life-

Are you



tired



of all



that
















100 million trees must
be cut down every year to
help provide the paper for
magazines, catalogs and
junk mail resulting in 40
million tons of paper clog-
ging the landfills each
year.
Junk mail is one of the
most difficult papers to re-
cycle. It is deeply inked
and colored. The process
takes a large amount of
water and chemicals. The
slurry formed after this
process is nothing more

Defending champs host UF in two-meet weekend


As if facing four ranked teams
as not enough last week, the UF
ten's swimming and diving team,
is time joined by the women,
heads to Alabama with a dual meet
,ainst defending national cham-
ion Auburn today.
- Then the Gators will head to
ascaloosa Saturday for another
ual meet with Alabama.
Coach Gregg Troy believes that if
either team comes away with a vic-
)ry against Auburn it would have
- immediate confidence boost for
ie Gators. However, UF still has
higher goals in mind other than this
ne meet.
"The reality of the matter is it
rill not mean anything if we do not
)me back and swim well in confer-
nce and NCAAs," Troy said.
Junior All-American Brian
lartley agrees that the team must
:ay focused on the final goals, and
ot get caught up in individual dual
ieets.
"We are focusing on making
everyone better as a team, not
ist whether it is a win or a loss,"
lartley said. "I think it would be a
reat victory for us, but we cannot
)ok at it as an automatic win for
conference and nationals. It's just a
iual meet, and those are different
nan what will happen at the cham-
>ionship level."

Despite a rough warm-up in
Las Vegas, the UF women's tennis
team heads into Saturday's opening
match against Baylor confident and
ready for the upcoming season.
UF, ranked No. 3 in the nation,
failed to win a single trophy at last
weekend's Freeman Memorial in
Las Vegas, the team's final indi-
vidual event until the NCAA cham-
pionships. The Gators must now get
ready for a new team season follow-
ing one of the most disappointing in
recent UF history.
UF entered last season ranked
No. 1 in the nation following an un-
defeated 2003 season and a national
championship.
The Gators went into the NCAA
team championships as a No. 1 seed,
but suffered a heartbreaking second-
round loss to Miami.


"Losing to Miami last year left a
bitter taste in our mouths," junior
Jennifer Magley said. "It ... inspires
you to do better. I see their faces ...
every time I go for an overhead. I'm
ready for redemption."
With three freshmen, the Gators
are a younger, less-experienced
team. But Thomqvist said the team
does not lack enthusiasm.
Thomqvist is also confident in
his resident Gators to lead the team,
citing Magley as
one of the top
players this year.
"She's al-
'ways wanted
Sto play No. 1,"
Thomqvist said.
.- "N6w she has
Thrist that chance.-
Thornqvist Playing in the
limelight, it takes a special kid to do
'that every match."
Magley is confident in her
leadership position and her team's
chances.
"We have seven No. 1 players,"
Magley said. "Our No. 6 could play
No. 1 on any other team in the na-
tion. There is new blood in here now.
It's fresh ... Every time we go on the
court, we're ready to play."
The Gators will take on Baylor
Saturday at the- Ring Tennis
Pavilion.
"I know my team isn't focus-


ing on [Baylor]," freshman Lolita
Franguylan said. "We have to do
what we do. We practice hard. We
work hard. And I'm sure we're go-
ing to do great. I'm very confident."

It's been just nine days since the
UF men's tennis team lost one of
its premier players to injury. Since
then, Coach Andy Jackson has re-
structured the lineup in preparation
for Sunday's season opening dual
match.
The No. 3 Gators host Central
Florida, a team that Jackson said
must be taken seriously.
"They'll push us and we'll strug-
gle because it's our first match,"
Jackson said. "We'll get through it
and we'll get better."
With top-seeded junior Janne
Holmia out for the season, the team
looks to senior Hamid Mirzadeh
for leadership. The three-time
All-American spent most of the
fall season competing on the pro
circuit, which leaves him currently
unranked.
"I'm confident I can lead the
team in the right direction in order
to win the NCAAs," Mirzadeh said.
"I just hope they have faith in me


and believe that I can do it."
While the loss of Holmia might
have taken the Gators by surprise,
Jackson said the team has had
enough time to realize that he is no
longer a part of the lineup. As a re-
sult, there is also less room for error.
Since the ITA rankings were
released the same day as Holmia's
surgery, his absence was not fac-
tored into the poll. But Jackson
insists that it would have made no
difference.
"If Janne had not been injured,
but instead graduated, we still add-
ed two outstanding freshmen and
we still had everybody else back,"
Jackson said. "It hurts to lose an All-
American, but we have the depth
and experience to give us a chance
to overcome that loss."
Freshmen Greg Ouellette and
-,Nestor Briceno are some of the top-
'ranked newcomers, and the team
expects them to step up.
"They are not typical freshmen,"
Jackson said. "They are young and
they'll be better at the end of the
season than they are now, but no
team can be overly confident that
they will be able to beat Ouellette
or Briceno."

Faehn mixing


meet lineup

* THE GYMNASTICS COACH IS TRYING TO
CORRECT RECENT LOW SCORES.

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

For a coach in just her third season, Rhonda Faehn
has lofty goals for the UF gymnastics team.
Despite having a team on which only two seniors
see significant action, Faehn has tailored the Gators'
routines to maximize their difficulty.
The strategy has produced mixed results in the
early part-of the season, as several individuals have
won titles, but falls have cost the team to win meets.
Faehn's aggressive strategy will again be on
display tonight as the No. 10 Gators host No. 19
Nebraska in the O'Connell Center.
"It's a fine line," Faehn said. "You have to have
everyone performing what they do best as perfect as
possible. That's kind of what we use the first three or
so meets to do, to figure out what
they- can handle difficulty-wise
while performing to the best of
S their ability."
.. As with the first meet of the
season, uneven bars proved to be
,UF's undoing again last weekend
at LSU, as the team's score of 48.4
was its lowest of the meet.
Faehn In response to her squad's
struggles, Faehn has elected to juggle the lineup.
"We really went back and re-evaluated and talked
to the gymnasts," she said. "Tiffany Murry admitted
to us that she needed more repetitions in the gym to
build up her confidence. We'll plug her back in once
she feels confident. We'll have Ashley Reed either in
the lineup or in an exhibition.
"For sure we're going to put in Katie Rue. We put
her in an exhibition at LSU and she hit a great routine
and she's been training really well."
Rue's 9.8 exhibition performance on bars last week
would have been second best on the team.
Samantha Lutz will return to the balance beam
lineup after sitting out the event last week after suf-
fering a bone bruise and slightly sprained ankle in the
Super Six Challenge two weeks ago.
"If you watch the video coverage on beam, she
landed her dismount on the basketball court, com-
pletely off the mat," Faehn said.
Lutz may also compete on floor.
Senior Orley Szmuch may also return to the vault
lineup after resting last week. Erinn Dooley could
possibly make her season debut on bars tonight.
-Dooley continues to be suffering the effects of a
stress fracture in her foot that has bothered her since
the fall. Faehn said it is a tough-healing injury.
"We've realized that it's always going to hurt, and
.we just have to try and limit it as much as possible,"
Faehn said.


SHAF, from page 24

efforts of the glass-eating Al
Horford, UF has taken a much
more aggressive approach to
the boards this season, and it
has paid immediate dividends.
UF ranks fifth in the SEC in
rebounds, pulling down 37.3
per game. The Gators are also
holding their opponents to 31.2
boards per game, bested only
by Mississippi in-conference.
That +6.1 rebounding mar-
gin is-perhaps the nmost telling


number in this entire statistics
glut. Last season, UF boasted an
impressive rebounding margin
of +0.8.

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

Two players to face former coach


By MICHAEL MAURINO
Alligator Writer
mmaurino@alligator.org

With a program milestone in
sight, the UF women's basketball
team returns to play Sunday, hosting


Mississippi.
If the Gators (12-5, 3-1 Southeastern
Conference) win, it will be the 500th
win in the team's history. Currently, UF,
Kentucky and Mississippi State are the
only SEC teams who have not reached
the 500-win mark.


Nick West/ Alligator Staff
Guard Tishona Gregory is one of just two Gators who will face their ex-
coach when UF battles Mississippi and Carol Ross on Sunday.


But for UF to reach that mark, it will
have to defeat the coach who led the
Gators to almost half of those wins.
Rebels (12-5, 2-2 SEC) coach Carol
Ross spent 12 years at the helm in
Gainesville. In her first stintas a head
coach, Ross led UF to a 247-121 re-
cord and nine NCAA appearances.
However, Ross resigned following the
2001-02 season.
In a January 2003 article on
the Women's Basketball Coaches
Association Web site, Ross says she
resigned due to fatigue.
"I loved my Gator experience and
college experience," Ross told wbca.org.
"I really loved what I was doing as the
head coach at Florida but I am also very
hard on myself and if I am not giving
100 percent and getting tired, I need to
take a break."
Ross joined Mississippi, her alma
mater, for the 2003-04 season, and de-
feated the Gators 79-72 in Oxford. Now,
Ross returns to UF for the first time on
the opposite-bench.
Coach Carolyn Peck said Ross is .a
friend of hers and a friend of the pro-
gram, and thinks Ross will be as suc-
cessful at Mississippi as at UF.
"When you look at what she was
able to do for this program when she
got here," Peck said, "I think she is
definitely heading in that direction at
Ole Miss."
There are only two players on UF's
squad that played for Ross: seniors
Tishona Gregory and Tamia Williams.
For Williams, she has been thinking
about the matchup, but that it is not a
distraction to the team.
"I think we go against every op-
ponent with the same mentality,"
Williams said. "Playing against Coach
Ross and playing for Coach Ross really
doesn't play a big part in the game be-
cause we don'thave a lot of plays that
played for Coach Ross."
Junior Bernice Mosby said. her
relationship with Ross was not as de-
veloped as that of Gregory or Williams,
but she has no hard feelings.
"I have no animosity [toward]
Coach Ross," said Mosby, the team's
leading scorer. "I love her. She's a great
person and a great woman. And I'll be
happy to see her, but I'll also be happy
to win."

Walsh's return a "slow process"

By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

As the Gators rode their three-game
Southeastern Conference win streak,
Anthony Roberson was the Band-Aid hold-
ing the offense together while forward Matt
Walsh's ankle healed.
With two 30-point games on the road
last week, Roberson had Gators fans asking,
"Matt who?" -
But even his 26-point performance
against Tennessee couldn't salvage a UF win
at home.
Surprised? Shouldn't be.
Coach Billy Donovan made it clear before
the season started that some other players
needed to complement UF's big three -
/ Roberson, Walsh and senior forward David
Lee in order for the team to succeed.
Instead, three now equals one, and the
question is: Who's going to become that solid
-contributor?
Likely, it won't be Walsh.
While Walsh culminated a rapid recovery
with a 13-minute outing against the Vols,
Donovan said the junior definitely won't start
against Georgia on Tuesday and probably will
see limited playing time in the near future.
"I think [it's unfair] just taking him and
putting him in the starting lineup or giv-
ing him 35 minutes a night right now after
missing four games and so many practices,"
Donovan said.
And though Walsh, who's been practic-
ing with the team since Monday, said he
felt "awesome" following his 2 for 6 shoot-
ing, 6-point game on Wednesday, Donovan
repeated that it will take time for Walsh to
return to the then-team-leading 16-points-
per-game player he was when he suffered a
severe ankle sprain on Dec. 30.
"I think this is going to be a situation for
Matt where it's going to be a slow process for

RECRUITING

UF welcomes


many recruits

By ERIC ESTEBAN
Alligator Writer
eesteban@alligator.org

Century Tower may not be chiming Al
Green's, "Let's Stay Together," this weekend, but
that still will be the exact message Coach Urban
Meyer will be preaching to recruits.
Today marks the start of two crucial recruiting
weekends for Meyer and his staff. They will be
trying to convince 18 undecided prep-stars to call
the Swamp home for the next four years.
As opposed to recent weekends when the
Gators played host to no more
than six recruits, the high num-
ber at this point of the recruit-
ing stage allows the coaches to
make a final pitch at some of
the recruits considering UF
The incoming group fea-
tures several UF oral commit-
Meyer ments, but the larger number
consists of athletes hoping to
become familiar with the coaching staff.
David Nelson, a 6-foot-6, 196-pound wide re-
ceiver ranked No. 39 at his position by Scout.com,
is one of this weekend's visitors who will be
checking out Gainesville for the first time.
"I'm really excited to get a chance to see how
Florida is," Nelson said. "I've talked to [wide
receivers coach] Billy Gonzales a lot and he has
answered almost every question I've asked him
about the Gators."
Nelson participated in the U.S. Army All-
American Bowl Game and has narrowed his
'choices down to UF, Notre Dame, Texas and
Iowa. At a height of 6-foot-6, Nelson could grow
into a big-play target for quarterback Chris Leak

Gators defense, rebounding show improvements over last year


It's as if Tennessee stuck a pin
in UF's basketball bubble and
a soapy film now covers the
court at the O'Connell Center.
Ordinarily, we don't start talk-,

But given the delicate state of many
Gators hoops fans, one deflating,
early-season home loss is a concern.

regarding the recent failures of

This became so apparent to Billy
Donovan that he made an addition
to his coaching staff in Larry Shyatt
in order to sure up these weak-
nesses.
Guess what? It's worked. And
the numbers do not lie.
Last season, the Gators finished
second to last in the Southeastern
Conference in scoring defense,
surrendering almost 70 per game.
So far this season, UF is allowing
opponents to score 64.7 points per
game, good enough for sixth in the


conference. And with an offense that
once again paces the SEC pouring
in 83 points per game middle of
the defensive pack is just fine.
Granted, the Gators are still al-
