STUDENT GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS
Name war deliberate
By BRIDGET CAREY
Alligator Staff Writer
The Impact Party's early campaign-naming
troubles were caused by an organized effort by
Greek and Florida Blue Key members to confuse
and discourage voters familiar with the party's
former name, Access, an Alligator investigation
Several members of the Greek community
and FBK schemed to hijack the Access, Keg, and
Ignite party names and use them to mislead
students and benefit the Gator Party during the
Student Government election, according to a
highly active FBK member.
Regardless of the anonymous accusation, the
students who signed paperwork to claim the
parties' names share various connections be-
tween them. They are friends, neighbors, Delta
Upsilon Fraternity brothers, and two even share
a romantic bond the presidents of the Keg and
Those involved in setting up the parties deny
any scheming and say the connections between
them are purely coincidental.
FBK Speaker's Bureau Coordinator and for-
mer student body president Marc Adler, along
with former FBK Gator
Growl Producer and for-
mer Delta Upsilon house
leader Pedro "Peter"
Election Allende, are among the
[I^I handful of students in-
volved with overseeing
and organizing this political tactic tk.oilp the
Gator Party win, according to the s.'oii;e
The source said that Adler and Allende are
FBK presidential hopefuls, and if they can make
deals to help the Gator Party win, then they have
a better chance of being elected president of one
of the most powerful student organizations at

By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
The administrative arm that serves
students outside of the classroom will
undergo an overhaul this semester
that will place oversight of Student
Government into the hands of an
honorary member of Florida Blue

that was absent student input.
Vice President for Student Affairs
Patricia Telles-Irvin announced over
Spring Break a reorganization of
the division that will change who
supervises Greek Life, the Office of
Community Service and SG.
The organization is aimed at
improving the division's ability to
provide students with. educational
opportunities, such as leadership
and service, outside of the classroom,

students' money at the first of four
executive-ticket debates Monday.
Impact candidate Michelle
Lightboume emphasized her expe-
rience as president of the Benton
Engineering Council and her re-
sponsibility over its finances.
Justin Lauer, an engineering ma-
jor on the Voice ticket, questioned
Lightboume's performance in
that position, pointing out that the
group's finance reports showed no
money allocated for the Engineering
"I am a little disappointed in the
way she put the budget together,"
Lauer said. "She made it more dif-
ficult for engineers."
Lightboume said in an interview
after the debate that the financial
reports were standardized for all
student organizations, meaning
specific events were no longer listed
as expenditures. Some events, like
the Engineering Fair, still remain
funded within broad categories that
also are reported on the same paper-

Transit head resigns '1-1 an
day March 25
By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
After five years of service,
Gainesville's Regional Transit
Service Director Jeff Logan, respon-
sible for aiding in the expansion of
RTS by 136 buses and creating more
than 100 new jobs, announced plans
to resign Monday.
Logan accepted the position- of
regional vice president for another
transit company and will leave RTS
on March 25.
"The mark of any good leader
is to leave behind an organization
that has competent leadership
throughout its ranks, and I think
Mr. Logan has certainly accom-
plished that," Gainesville's Interim
Public Information Officer Bob
Woods said during a phone inter-
view Monday evening.
Logan's new duties will include
providing management and ser-
vice to clients on a national level,
according to a city manager press
"It is understandable that a com-
pany in private industry would ac-

tively seek out Jeff to become a part
of their management team," said
Barbara Lipscomb, interim city
manager. "He has been a tremen-
dous leader. We sincerely wish him
well and will miss him."
Logan is also credited with add-
ing a degree of professionalism to
the RTS program.
"RTS is held up as an example
of what transit should be in com-
munities around the country," said
Teresa Scott, former public works
director and current interim assis-
tant city manager. "I wish [Logan]
the best as he takes on this new
"He leaves behind an organiza-
tion that is well-poised to move
forward in the future," he said.
Logan's leadership also is cred-
ited with bringing innovative ap-
proaches to transit technology.
In 2002, RTS added two hybrid
buses to its fleet. Purchased with
the help of a federal grant, the
buses run on a combination of bat-
tery power and fuel.
"Mr. Logan was an exceptional
leader for the RTS system," Woods
said. "His management abilities
will be surely missed."

appointed prior to Logan's de-

Soaking up more than sun
Group gets hands
dirty with algae
By JEFF SIRMONS
KEY LARGO Hidden on Transylvania
Street not visible from U.S. Highway 1 is
a place where whale bones hang from the
ceiling and sunblock is stored by the milk
crate. Four female UF students journeyed
to this MarineLab in Key Largo over Spring
Break not to relax and sunbathe but to study
The 4000-level botany class the students
enrolled in was intended to introduce them
to the life of algae, but in the process, the
students learned much-more.
"I had ice cream without agar (a sub-
stance derived from algae) once in east
Europe, and there were ice crystals all over
the ice cream," said professor Joseph Davis,
who has studied algae for more than 45
years. "Not very pleasant."
"Everyone should have their favor-
The journey through the Florida Keys en-
tailed 11 hours of cold and wind, and a second
day of snorkeling under a sunless sky. Despite
the nippy weather, Davis remained chipper,
jumping out of the UF van at each stop like a
puppy ready for his walk. Davis could barely
hold in his anticipation to see the seaweed.
"No matter what the conditions, he gets
excited about seaweed," UF student Olga
Bernstyn said after the three-day field trip.
"That man's crazy about algae."
On the first stop of the trip, in Long Key,
the students followed Davis, 76, who eagerly
leaned over controlled ponds, searching for
new types of algae. He spotted 17 types but
did not find his favorite, Heterosiphonia,
a red algae he calls "the most beautiful of
"Everyone should have their favorite
algae," he said.
Marilia Dinamarco, whose favorite is
Valonia, a green algae she says "looks like
water balloons," could not help but be occa-
sionally distracted by the animal life on the
marine preserve, which included sharks, sea
urchins and blowfish.
Ben Olaivar, who, despite being a part of
UF's zoology department, assisted with the
trip, went about his own way gathering up
sea squirts, Cassiopeia (a type of jellyfish)
and other small marine life to bring back
to UF for zoology students to study, but he
was often joined by students who needed, a
respite from Davis' non-stop algae fascina-
"It's really good that he came because
he gives us a free lesson on marine zool-
ogy, as well as a break from all the weed,"
The foursome accompanied Davis
around the keys, soaking up as much algae
.information as they possibly could.
"Bostrychia can survive any type of
salinity. That's Boss-trick-E-uh," he said di-
dactically so the students would not forget
it. "During high tide, they love the normal
salinity of the water and during no tide, all
the water evaporates, leaving just the salt,
which they somehow love, and then when it
rains, all the water washes all the salt away,
leaving them fresh, which they still love. It's
amazing how they can live through any-
thing and just flourish. Boss-trick-E-uh."
The foursome proved it was capable of
surviving many conditions as well, remain-
ing positive for most of the trip.
"I knew this trip would be good when
I saw the girls had made their own algae
shirts," Olaivar said. "Students make or
break this trip, and I'm glad these students
kept a good attitude."
All four women had homemade shirts
representing a type of algae and usually
expressed joy when one of their types of
algae was found. Bernstyn's favorite alga
is nicknamed the mermaid's wineglass, as
it resembles an underwater inverted mush-
room, she said.
"I can just see the little mermaids sipping
from the algae cup," she smiled.
As research for UF, Davis has advised
corporations on how to extract the salt from
seawater using algae in every continent ex-
"Making salt from seawater is like cook-
ing it down in a pot," he said: "However, it's
more complex than that, because there are so
many other unpleasant things in seawater
that-you have to filter out."
He also has been known to turn against
algae, advising the manufacturers on how to

get rid of its undesirable appearances.
"It's business, not personal," Davis
The more enthusiastic the students be-
came for seaweed, the more they found they
enjoyed the trip,
"This was more fun-than I thought it
would be, and surprisingly, I'm remem-
bering the seaweed names because I see
them so often. Guys aren't going to date
anyone this enthusiastic about seaweed,
though," Dinamarco said.
Alcohol again an issue with wine tasting, bar incidents
By EMILY YEHLE
A wine-tasting fundraiser turned sour when an intoxicated
woman clawed and kicked a University Police. officer as he es-
corted her out of the Reitz Union on Feb. 27, reports show.
The incident occurred amid efforts by university officials
to curb student drinking, emphasized more than a month ago
when UF's president prohibited alcohol sponsorship of some
events, and just following a reported Feb. 25 sexual battery af-.
ter the taping of a beer-drinking reality show near campus.
About 600 people convened to taste over 300 wines as part of
the 16th annual "A Celebration of Wine," a fundraiser for UF's
public radio stations, WUFT-FM, or Classic 89, and WJUF-FM,
or Nature Coast 90. The woman, 26-year-old Jennifer Clafin, is
a UF bioscientisf, according to UPD records.
"This is the first time anything has happened in 16 years,"
said Sue Wagner, director of communication at WUFT and co-
founder of the event.
University and city officials met Feb. 16 to discuss how to
curb student alcohol abuse through environmental factors on
campus and surrounding areas.
However, administrators,have yet to make.a decision on
how to handle this situation, Machen wrote in an e-mail.
"We have asked that the organizers consider other venues
for future events, but no decision has-been made," Machen
Clafin reportedly became belligerent af-
ter several wine distributors refused to pour
her any more alcohol, Wagner said.
Despite the problem, the event was
a success and probably pulled in about
$40,000, said co-founder Wade Tyler, whose
Wine and Cheese Gallery co-sponsors the
Machen With officers patrolling the event and
checking identification at the door and with
pour restrictors on every wine bottle, the event organizers took
all precautions necessary, said Mike Mironack, interim director
of the Reitz Union and member of the public radio station's
board of directors.
"They cuther off. When she wasn't taking it that well, she
caused a scene, and UPD stepped in and escorted her," he said.
"As far as the event is concerned, things worked as they were
Isolated incidents can't dictate university policy, said.Tavis
Glassman, coordhiator for alcohol and other drug prevention
for UF's GatorWell Health Promotion Services.
"I've never heard of a wine-tasting event getting out of
hand," he said, later adding, "I think because the university
had proper supervision, it sounds like they are handling it as
appropriately as can be expected.".GatorWell's recent survey
showed that about 73 percent of underage UF students drink
and prompted administrators to study the problem.
In incidents such as the outburst at the fundraiser, the uni-
versity has to weigh its options, Glassman said.
"One issue is we want to provide a forum where students
and adults can drink responsibly," he said. "The other issue is
we want to reduce access to alcohol."
Two days before the wine tasting, a 20-year-old female UF
student reportedly was dragged up five flights of stairs during
a rape attempt following the taping of the MTV show, "Reality
Bar Crawl" at The Grog House.
Her alleged assailant, Phi Sigma Kappa Fraternity member
Huang Wei Chiu, was.charged with sexual battery and sus-
pended from the fraternity. Both the attacker and the victim
attended the show's taping.
Glassman said he couldn't say whether the reality show fit
into the environmental factors that affect student drinking and
violence but said that environments with easy access to alcohol
are associatedwithmore violent crime:

The Alligator presents an
open letter to the Greeks
In the past, the Alligator Opinions section has at times been
unrelentingly harsh in its criticism of the Greek community.
Editorial cartoonist Andy Marlette in particular had a field
day with SG politics last year- though we won't deny that
we feel it was warranted. Unfortunately, this means that when
we try to praise them for doing something good this semes-
ter- such as Marlette's cartoon on their tsunami aid drive it
is misinterpreted as being negative.
In order for us to clear the air, we would-like to offer this
open letter the Greek community:
Listen, we do not think that you operate collectively as a
monolithic, fascist conglomeration that solely makes decisions
on a hive-mind basis. We don't think all Greek organizations are
the same, or that they all participate equally in any incidences of
wrongdoing. It may seem that way, because our editorials and
cartoons tend to emphasize the problems we see, but it is not.
We also, however, do not believe for a moment that you are
being truthful when you tell us that nothing fishy is going on.
We know that some house leaders coerce their members to
vote for particular parties, we know there are some SG positions
being promised in exchange for support and we know that
there is more of this going on than we have reported.
Because of the many concerned readers who tell us about
these questionable activities, however, we can't ignore them.
Greeks, of course, insist they are individuals, not puppets of
the system. But if you want to be seen as individuals, you have
to act like individuals. If you see something wrong, speak out. If
you don't agree with your house members, stand up to them.
So all we're asking is for you to level with us. If you don't
want to be cast in a negative light, work to eradicate the prac-
tices are causing people to take issue with your organizations.
When it comes to SG elections, it's OK if a fraternity or soror-
ity wants to openly endorse a particular party or candidate. We
know that Greeks are people too, and they have the same rights
to hold political beliefs as any other student.
But there is a line between what support is appropriate and
what is not. Luckily for you, though, the "line" is more like a
gigantic landing strip with big flashing lights surrounding it.
For instance, this is an acceptable thing for a fraternity or
sorority leader to say to their members: "As your leader, I think
it's important that you get involved in SG. I also think that you
should support (some candidate) for (some office) because (he/
she) is the best for the job."
On the other hand, this an unacceptable thing to say: "You
are going to vote for (some party). If we don't see your 'I voted'
sticker on the chart by tomorrow, you can pick up your stuff off
the lawn on your way out of the house." '
Obviously that is a dramatization, but we think you under-
stand where we're going with it.
Similarly, give us a break on the legacy positions. If there
only was a slightly disproportionate number of Greeks in SG,
and particularly in positions of high influence, we could believe
claims that this simply is because fraternity and sorority mem-
bers are more likely to be active and interested in SG.
And we won't say that they aren't. But when we have posi-
tions being filled 13 times out of 16 by the same fraternity, we,
can't give you that much credit. No organization has the unique
ability to produce exactly the most qualified candidate nearly
every single year not for Accent, and not for any of the other
positions that are treated the same way.
If you don't quite get the point, Greek community members,
it's that you have to make some attempt to stop these things
from happening if you are to get rid of this public image.
If we see an effort in good faith on your part, we'll offer the
same in return.

Graduate assistants need to speak up
ost in the recent discussion over the appropriate level
of student participation in what counts as university
"politics" is the fact that Student Government has a
very real hold over health insurance for graduate teaching
and research assistants. SG appoints members to the health
insurance board that receives competitive bids for the stu-
dent health care plan. The UF administration offers a sub-
sidy to graduate assistants with the student health care plan
contracted through Scarborough Insurance Company. All
indications point to an increase in premium rates of up to
15 percent without a significant increase in coverage for the
2005-06 academicyear. Because the student health care plan
does not meet the needs of the vast majority of graduate
employees at this university, Graduate Assistants United,
the labor union that represents those employees, insists that
any health plan provided by our employers be delinked
from the student health plan. Until then, I call on graduate
teaching and research assistants to closely scrutinize the
health care platform of all candidates in the SG election.
Let me begin with these two premises: Firstly, graduate
teaching assistants teach more than 40 percent of the under-
graduate classes at this university; secondly, graduate re-
search assistants do more than 50 percent of the research at
this university. Graduate TAs and RAs, already recognized
as workers by the state of Florida, are quite literally what
makes UF work. As such, we are in fundamentally different
positions than the vast majority of the student body at UF,
and any attempt to lop GAs into a student plan belittles our
contribution to UF as workers.
For dozens of years, Graduate Assistants United has
publicly maintained that the work conditions for graduate
assistants at UF has had a detrimental effect on UF's aca-
demic competitiveness: the minimum stipend for a gradu-
Todd Reynolds ate assistant ranks among the lowest
Speaking Out in the nation, and until last year, our
employers did not offer to help allevi-
ate the cost of health insurance.
As long as UF persists in offering a student-, not em-
ployee-, based plan designed for those younger than 25, UF
will not be competitive in this very important field.
Because the current health package offered to the gradu-
ate workers here is negotiated through SG, I echo the nu-
merous calls for increased participation in the SG electoral
process. Specifically, graduate assistants should demand
that candidates take a position on how to address health
care for graduate labor. For instance, where do candidates
stand on premium hikes based on a graduate assistant's
age? How can UF offer a plan that increases coverage
without being cost prohibitive to a graduate assistant who
makes a stipend of only $7,400 per academic year?
Just as importantly, though, SG elections cannot be the
sole means of participating in the everyday politics of the
university. Graduate assistants in particular need to stand
together to continue to apply pressure to UF's administra-
tion to meet its obligation to provide a living wage and ad-
equate, affordable health care to the employees that make
this university work. In this vein, Graduate Assistants
United will continue to insist on its legal right to negotiate
into the collective bargaining agreement of all employee
benefits health insurance included. While SG elections
are a key event to promoting a university culture that val-
ues our worth, safeguarding our rights in our workspace
needs to be an activity that happens every day in the life of
a graduate worker, not just once a semester.

Personal connections unearthed between competing SG parties
SG, from page 1
But Allende, who applied as Ignite's party
president, said he does not intend to pursue
the FBK presidency and did not set up his
party with intentions of aiding Gator by con-
Adler could not be reached for comment.
Connecting the dots
The Gator Party President and former
Student Sen. Michael Schuster is dating
Lauren Mauer, also a former senator, who
filed paperwork to be president of the Keg
party. Both are FBK members.
Richard Yan is listed as the Keg party trea-
surer applicant, and is a fellow Delta Upsilon
fraternity brother with both students who ap-
plied to start Ignite.
Yan was a fellow varsity Wellington High
School debate team member with fraternity
brother and Ignite party treasurer applicant
Darren Goldman, according to the Palm Beach
Yan and Goldman also played on the same
ultimate Frisbee team in 2003, according to
Ignite's president, Allende, is neighbors
and good friends with FBK member Michael
Shine, the Access Party's president. Shine and
Allende worked together at Gator Growl.
They also visit each other's neighboring apart-
ments to play "Halo 2" together.
Shine has no ties with the Student Body
President Jamal Sowell's Access Party. He has
previously said he could better represent the
name Access and registered the name to pre-
vent current Access members from using it.
FBK prides neutrality
FBK President Brian Roof said that not
only does the leadership organization make it
a priority to keep separate from SG and pun-
ishes political deals, but accusations that they
control who wins elections are "completely
"The vast majority of members in Florida
Blue Key frown upon that activity and
wouldn't be a part of it," Roof said.
The process to become an FBK member or
officer requires a series of checks and balances,
Roof explained, and although a possibility ex-
ists that someone could falsely influence oth-
ers with temptations of FBK power, he has not
heard any complaints about members making
the accused political deals.
"I can tell you three-fourths of the member-
ship could care less who wins (the election),"
Roof said that if the group uncovers any
corruption, the member would then be re-
moved from FBK.
"It's a shame that Florida Blue Key is
always brought up," he said, adding that its
members are naturally active in many school
functions, such as SG.
Gator's Schuster said he had nothing to do
with his girlfriend, Mauer, signing up the Keg
Party, and that he had no knowledge of it until
afterward. Mauer also said Schuster knew
nothing of her plans and emphasized her in-
dependence from the Gator president.
She said she submitted the Keg's applica-
tion with intentions notto run the party in the
election because she thought the name Keg
was a "disgrace" to SG and didn't want to see
it used. She said her actions would not have
affected the Gator Party, which she boasts sup-
port for in her thefacebook.com profile.
Yan, Goldman and Shine did not return
phone calls over a two-day period.
Parties never approved

finalized due to incomplete information, ac-

Gator candidate reacts
"The Gator Party has no involvement in
any registering of any parties," said Gator
presidential candidate Joe Goldberg.

many parties was to confuse students or dis-
courage voters to benefit his party.

Telles-Irvin told the Student Body executive board
of the changes but did not include them in the plan-
"I included them as I was letting them know what
my decisions were," Telles-Irvin said, adding that she
notified SG and Greek leaders. "At that point the de-

- seemed to be on board, Telles-Irvin said.
Sowell and Ngin said that Telles-Irvin should
have used student input, but agreed that the changes
will benefit SG.
"I do expect a lot of concern that I want to take
up with Dr. Telles-Irvin with the decision being told
to us," said Ngin, who is running for Student Body
president. "There should have been more open com-
munication, at least between Student Body President
Jamal [Sowell] and her."
Other Student Body presidential candidates were
more critical of students' exclusion from the decision-
MacKenzie Moritz of the Progress Party said the
incident shows how student input needs to find a
real voice in UF's administration.
"There should have been a lot more public discus-
sion on this," Moritz said. "No one really knew about
it until it was over."
Because the decision will affect students, they
should have had a seat at the-table, said Joe Goldberg,
presidential candidate for the Gator Party.
"While I think the changes makes sense,"
Goldberg said, "it was brought upon us very fast,
and I don't think that's the best way to go."
Beeland will become the official adviser to SG
after the Student Body elections. In 2004, she was in-
ducted as an honorary member into Florida Blue Key,
a leadership honorary proven in court during the '90s
to have an inordinate amount of influence over SG,
but Telles-Irvin and officials involved in the organiza-
tions said there will be no conflict of interest
"I think Lohse Beeland is an excep-
Student tional professional," Telles-Irvin said.
Life "That's not a concern."
The new set-up will be "natural"
for the Office of Student Activities because it already
neighbors SG, Beeland said.
"The University of Florida was an anomaly in
having the dean's office do it," Beeland said, adding
that SG officials regularly seek advice from Student
Activities. "It's not unusual at all for us. It's a role that
we're pretty comfortable with."
In addition to the change in SG oversight, Telles-
Irvin created two new positions. Director of Student
Development and External Affairs, Myra Morgan
will oversee Greek Life, which will be called the
Office of Sororities and Fraternities. The name change
is meant to be inclusive to fraternities and sororities
whose names do not include Greek letters, Greek Life
Director Chris Bullins said.
Reitz Union Director David Kratzer assumed the
second position, associate vice president for Student
Affairs, this week. He will oversee Student Affairs'
budget and seek additional funding and help from
UF alumni. Meanwhile, Mike Mironack has taken his
spot as interim director of the union.

Greek Greek houses each
Life night this week to col-
lect the donations.
"It's a competition,
but the end result is lifesaving,"
Michele Simmons, donor consul-

"We found that enforcement

it solves everything," UF College

which involve uniformed officers

the Gators in a 6-5 victory against Clemson.

its first of two consecutive national riles..
48. Christian Drejer departs for Spain 2' 18/2004 In the grand scheme of UF basketball, Drejer's shock-
ing mid-season departure to' Spain meant little. But it did make terns much more weary of signing European
47. A UF All-American -. 12.' 7/1928 Despite falling to Tennessee 13-12 and losing hopes of a Rose Bowl ap-
pearance, the Gators took solace in their first All-American honoree, defensive end Dale. t E- Sickle,

that mission statement with an exclama-

league's stingiest defense at their
own game with a 53-52 upset.
