SG ELECTION PROFILES
Goldberg's accomplishments sculpt SG aspirations
Editor's note: This is the first in a series
of three articles taking a closer look at
Student Body presidential candidates.
By NEIL HUGHES
Joe Goldberg wants you to know that
he can sing.
"Throughout Gainesville, sometimes
you'll find me at different establishments
with a mic in my hand, singing oldies mu-
sic," Goldberg said.
In fact, between singing and his four
years in Student Government, it's safe to
say the. 22-year-old Gator Party presiden-
tial candidate has spent a majority of his
time at UF behind a microphone.
But, he says, the devotion to the student
body is worth the sacrifice.

"Obviously SG takes up a lot of my

with the students."
Goldberg, a sports management senior,
would like to work as a representative at

But before that, he'd like to be your
Student Body president.
"The students need an advocate and
someone who will stand up for them,"
Goldberg said. "I don't think that the stu-
dents have had that for a while."
."I have my finger on the pulse here at
the University of Florida," he added.
Goldberg said his experience and con-
nections with university, city and state
officials make him the clear choice for
Student Body president.
"I already have the relationships," he
said. "I don't have to make them."
Despite his involvement in SG,5

accomplishment in SG was becoming

"Without the students, there would be

City candidates converge
At-Large hopefuls discuss Wal-Mart, alcohol
By BRIAN HAGEN
Cox Communications hosted a forum Tuesday
night for all candidates running in the March 29
City Commission election to present their views on
myriad issues relevant to the future of Gainesville,
from changing bar dosing times to the economic
impact of a new Wal-Mart.
Vying for the seat every voter in Gainesville
may cast a ballot for, candidates expressed cautious
Support for changing the closing time
of local bars and dubs.
"I'm willing to work with the
GPD and the commission for a inore
orderly evacuation of downtown,"
incumbent Rick Bryant said.
Brinkman "I certainly don't support serv-
ing alcohol later," candidate Rob
Brinkman said. "Stop alcohol sales at 2 a.m. and let
people mellow out and leave when they will."
"As a former parole officer, I think
this sets up people for failure," can-
didate Diyonne McGraw said about
the current closing time. "We may
want to have security to come and
allow places to stay open until 3 or
McGraw 4 (a.m.)"
Regarding the new coal and
petroleum coke-fueled power plant proposed by
Gainesville Regional Utilities, Brinkman favors
"multiple strategies," including exploring renew-
able energy and other alternatives.
"When you're spending taxpayers' money, it's
fundamental to seek out all options," McGraw said,
supporting more studies.
"Gainesville needs a leader who doesn't make
up his mind before all the informa-
tion is in," Bryant agreed.
McGraw supported another
Wal-Mart in Gainesville but said the
current planned location "places one
side of town against the other."
Bryant Brinkman agreed with the senti-
ment of divisiveness, saying there are
better sites within city limits.
Bryant previously traveled to Orlando to meet
with Wal-Mart officials. He wants to review the sec-
ond location's plan before commenting further.
Concern about the possible relocation of Shands
at AGH was addressed, with McGraw supporting
incentives for the hospital.
S"It would be a disservice to the-community to
close the hospital," she said.
"I can't think of a more devastating move,"
Bryant agreed. "What a hole that
S would leave when we're trying to
S revitalize that area."
The people of East Gainesville
need good health care, Brinkman
said. He added that he hopes Shands
Kaimowitz will stay in the area, but, as a private
corporation, it can choose to move.
Fourth At-Large candidate Gabriel Kaimowitz
was not present for the forum.
The forum will be broadcast on Channel 12.

Tomato pickers win
By DAVID COHEN-
After harvesting three-and-a-
half years of protests and negotia-
tions, Florida's tomato farm work-
ers finally reaped their rewards
Taco Bell announced it found
suppliers willing to pass down
the penny-per-pound increase
the company has agreed to pay
for tomatoes directly to Florida
farm workers, who have long
been lobbying for better wages.
"This is ar important victory for
farm workers,.one that establishes
a new standard of social respon-
sibility for the fast-food industry
and makes an immediate material
change in the lives of workers,"
said Lucas Benitez, a-leader in the
Coalition of Immokalee Workers,
a group of tomato farm workers
based in Naples, in a press release.
Over the course of that time, the
coalition protested approximately
10 times on UF's campus, urging
students to boycott Taco Bell.
According to the coalition, Taco
Bell is one of the largest buyers of
Florida tomatoes and could affect
change within the industry.
The one penny increase per
pound of tomatoes bought by
Taco Bell translates to an annual
increase of $100,000 in the pockets
"All of the demands were met
arid more," Benitez said.
Taco Bell said it was just as
"As an industry leader, we are
pleased to lend our support to and
work with.the [coalition] to im-
prove working and pay conditions
for farm workers in the Florida-
tomato fields," Taco Bell President
Emil Brolick said in the release.
Workers are paid 1.2 cents
per pound of tomatoes picked,
but under the new contract, farm
workers will be paid 2.2 cents per
pound of tomatoes bought by Taco
Bell. This will affect 1,000 members
of the more than 2,500 workers af-
filiated with the coalition -
However, Taco Bell Public
Relations Manager Sally George
said her company agreed to pay
-the extra penny when the coali-
tion's boycott began.
"We had agreed-in the past to
pay a penny more for our toma-
toes," George said,. "but we just
recently found tomato suppliers
who were willing to give the extra

of its own trying to achieve the
needed wages for its members:

will follow our leader-
Taco Bell president
"We have gone to the growers a
number of times and were turned
down," Benitez said. "We did
three strikes in five years, and the
growers never agreed to increase
wages. We're so poor we couldn't
afford to be on strike a long time.
There is also this threat of being
fired when you are on strike."

Brian Payne,- U gradu-
ate and co-founder of Student

happy with the progress of the
deal but insists there is more work
to be done.
"This is the first step in the long
relationship with the [coalition]
to insure that all fast-food corpo-
rations and .supermarket chains
are accountable for the working
conditions in the supply chain,"
Payne said. "We first formed the

Senor to depict Iraqi life
By KATE STOREY
Alligator Contributing Writer
Dan Senor, former chief spokesman
for the Coalition Provisional Authority in
Iraq, is coming to UF courtesy of Jewish
Awareness Month and Accent, UF's
speakers bureau. Senor will speak in the
Reitz Union Rion Ballroom at 7 tonight.
Senor served in the Middle East
for 15 months as the senior adviser
to Presidential Envoy L. Paul Bremer
II, the administrator of the Coalition
Provisional Authority, according to a
"People will recognize him because
he was the guy on TV every day, giving
the speeches, making the news," Accent
chairman David Buchalter said.
Senor rode into Baghdad on the
first convoy of civilians into Iraq from
Kuwait less than two weeks after the fall
of Saddam Hussein's regime and is one
of the longest serving civilians in Iraq,
according to the release.
Accent and Jewish Awareness Month,
a division of the Jewish Student Union,
co-sponsored Senor in the hopes he will
bring a couple of different perspectives
about what it is like to be Jewish and
involved with the war in Iraq, Buchalter
"Being a Jew in the Middle East
along with being
an American put a
huge bullseye on
his back," Buchalter
said. "Managing his
faith and his job is
something he will
be talking about and
Senor is something people
deal with in their everyday lives."
Senor completed his undergradu-
ate studies at the University of Western
Ontario and Hebrew University of
Jerusalem, and earned his MBA from
Harvard Business School, according to
Buchalter said he hopes Senor will
draw both Jewish and non-Jewish stu-
dents and will better educate the com-
munity about the Jewish religion and

UF and SG shut students
out from key discussions
If anyone still isn't convinced that students are being denied
a say in the decisions that affect their daily lives, the recent
actions of the UF administration should be a wake-up call.
In a move that could drastically alter UF's oversight over
Student Government, the administration announced a shuffling
of the division that supervises SG, Greek Life and the Office of
For the moment, we are going to ignore the fact that the new
SG adviser, Lohse Beeland, is an honorary member of Florida
Blue Key. After all of the shenanigans that have gone on re-
cently, it's hard to feel too surprised about it.
We also are going to.ignore the fact that one of the primary
reasons offered for the change is that the current adviser, Dean
of Students Gene Zdziarski, had to walk too far to get to the SG
The important thing in this case is that students once again
were completely denied any say in such an important matter.
For one, the announcement was made during Spring Break.
Since few students are here over the break, the administration
obviously saw it as a convenient time to slip the decision in un-
der the radar without causing a stir.
Worse, SG officials were not allowed to participate in any
stage of the planning of this decision.
Vice President for Student Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin, who
announced the decision, justified the lack of SG involvement by
saying, "I included them as I was letting them know what my
Gee, thanks. I'm sure the student body will be comforted to
know that she decided it would be OK to let SG know about the
changes the administration was making to how SG operates.
Unfortunately, this incident is only part of a trend that shows
no signs of improving under the current system.
Earlier this semester, UF administrators committed to re-
branding the university's image, a decision that will affect the
value of all students' degrees in the future. These meetings were
not open to the public and were held away from campus in the
towri of Sanibel and other undisclosed locations.
And while it's probably not as important as these other is-
sues, UF students certainly would like to have a say in whether
or not the campus switches from Coca-Cola to Pepsi.
Apparently, the UF administration thinks that it should be
able to make decisions for the student body without ever con-
sulting any students or SG members.
Equally bad, other recent events have made it clear that SG
has learned a thing or two from the administration.
The most obvious example that comes to mind is the recent
SG Supreme Court decision to deny the petition to put online
voting on the ballot.
The Supreme Court made this decision in a secret meeting,
which they did not adequately publicize. Even the SG parties
categorically deny knowing about the meeting. In fact, at least
one executive candidate did not know about the decision until
it was reported in the Alligator.
Evidently, Florida's Sunshine Laws aren't enough by them-
selves to secure access to these meetings.
Calls for students to be active and speak out for what they
deserve may seem to be tired at this point in the electoral pro-
cess, but cases such as these are going to keep happening until
the students decide to do something about it.
If SG officials that will fight for change aren't elected, SG
won't ever be any better at offering access to students than it
is now. If students don't let the administration know that they
won't stand for decisions being made on their behalf without
their consent, the administration will never reconsider its pro-

Column gets some
Although I agree with the conclusion Jason Levitt
made in his Monday column "Freedom looks more
likely for China" that a free China is closer than
ever before I don't agree with the arguments he used to
reach that conclusion.
In his article, he claimed "the Chinese government has an
iron grip around the necks of the Chinese people," and "the
National People's Congress of China convened this week-
end to figure out ways to keep their chokehold tight." The
Chinese government was smart enough to stop making such
hostile yet vague accusations on an elected congress, while it
seems Levitt was not.
Levitt claimed that Chinese "Internet police" are a
"veritable army of Fascist computer geeks," which I don't
agree with. Like most other countries, China has a national
security department (equivalent to the U.S. Department of
Homeland Security) and a censorship system that deletes
subversive, erotic and terrorist contentfrom TV, newspapers
and the Internet. It's not anything new. Most young Chinese
people don't like it because we believe it's too strict, but it
helps protect Chinese people against terrorists. Without the
department, the government may choose to put even more
strict constraints on Internet service, like in North Korea.
Actually, many of these -"Internet police" helped give the
Chinese people more freedom by compromising with the'
government and sacrificing their own reputation. They are
unsung heroes, and I have full respect for them.
Levitt further stated, "Followed by millions in China,
the Falun Gong is a philosophy that mixes meditation and
exercise," and he imagined that "every Chinese has-received
a Falun Gong e-mail. There's no way to stop it ... you cannot
kill the users." I totally agree that every Chinese must have
received Falun Gong e-mails. Since I came to the United
States in 2002, I have received at least 300 (no kidding) Falun
Gong e-mails. They never contain a link to unsubscribe like
most junk e-mails do.
Levitt also said that the leaders of Falun Gong had been

arrested. But the founder of Falun Gong, Master.Li Hongzhi,
was not: He is living the good life here in the United States. I
found an article from Time magazine about an interview with
Hongzhi in 1999. Hongzhi stated thathe knew many human
beings could levitate, including magician David Copperfield.
He claimed his could cure all illnesses, but wouldn't do so.
He further said, "The biggest cause of society's change today
Fei Long is that people no longer believe in

Some from other planets ... The aliens
have introduced modem machinery like computers and
airplanes ... they will replace humans and aliens." It's an
interesting article, and I suggest that anyone who wants to
learn about the Falun Gong should read it.
China is not a perfect country, and the Chinese believe
we should learn from the success of other countries, includ-
ing the United States and some Middle Eastem nations.
Although there still is a long way to go for China to achieve
direct presidential election, China has held direct elections at
the village level since 1998 thanks to the help of the Jimmy
Carter Foundation. It is experimenting at the county level,
which has worked very well so far. At UF, more than 50%
of Chinese students turned out to vote in the Friendship
Association of Chinese Students and Scholars presidential
election, and this year we have. Pingping He, a Chinese
student, running for a Student. Senator spot in Student
Government. But what "gives Chinese people true hope and
prosperity in the 21st century" is neither the junk e-inails on
the Internet or democracy in the Middle East, but the educat-
ed and open-minded Chinese people, including the Chinese
students at UF, the "Internet police" and the members of the
National People's Congress.
I want to thank Levitt for his goodwill, but I suggest he
learn a little more about China before writing an article with
such prejudice, if not discrimination, in the future.

UF's graduate assistants are "at the

health care as undergraduate students,
Graduate Assistant Union officials said.

"Basically, the plan covers accidents
and injuries, and-we need the insurance

President Todd Reynolds said. "Most
graduate assistants are older than 25, and
we need a plan that fits people in that age
While the group is working with SG
parties to emphasize the importance of
improved graduate assistant health care, it
hopes to talk with administrators later this
year to cement a better plan.
"Graduate assistants at comparable
universities have employee health care
plans, and if this university wants to be-
come a Top 10 institution, it should offer
the same," Reynolds said.
All three Student Body presidential
candidates agreed that graduate assistants
should be given the same health care plan
as faculty, and all three noted the work
graduate assistants do for the university.

Srable universities have employee

appoint students who are truly concerned
with health care and not there just as a re-

care issue, they all felt UF administrators
should be responsible for providing better
insurance to graduate assistants.

Asthmatic as a child, Brantly spent more
than a decade studying Chronic Obstructive
Pulmonary Disease -- a fancy name for the
combined illnesses of asthma, chronic bron-
chitis and emphysema at the National
Institutes of Health.
Now-a professor with the UF College of
Medicine, Brantly gave a speech on COPD
at UF's McKnight Brain Institute on Tuesday
night, the last in a seminar series hosted by the
UF General Clinical Research Center.
According to the Centers for Disease
Control, COPD affected an estimated 10 mil-
lion Americans in 2000, and 14 million more
are suspected of having the disease, the fourth
leading cause of death in the nation.
"We are missing that huge group of people,
that bottom of the iceberg, that are clinically
undiagnosed," Brantly said to an audience of
approximately 40 students, faculty and lung-
"We were trying to get information out to
the community about clinical research and its

women. He said lung disease is both more
prevalent and-more lethal
U F in women.
Research '"When I see the young
girls outside the hospital
smoking, I want to go over
and shake them and ask, 'Do you know what

Brantly noted that it's not environment
alone that poses a risk for lung disease.
"Genetic risks are now recognized as a ma-
jor component of COPD," he said, adding that
the activation trigger is not known.
Brantly runs a COPD lab on campus that
screens more than 6,000 patients annually.
Treatments range from drugs to transplants,
and Brantly is working on an inhalable ste-
roid that can infuse the tiniest parts of the

..ore than just competing
By DAN TREAT
It all started with a simple challenge.
Upon joining UF's gymnastics team as
a walk-on in fall 2003, Savannah Evans
wrote down her goal for her freshman sea-
son. That goal was simply to compete.
Coach Rhonda Faehn had something
Alse in mind for Evans.
"When she said that her goal was just
co compete, I was floored," Faehn said. "I
was like, 'Why not put down, "I want to be
in all-arounder and I want to score a 10.0,"
because I know you genuinely want that.'
Instantly she lit up, and from that point
an she has been on autopilot, working so
Out of that challenge came success far
beyond what Evans herself expected when
she left Destin for UF.
"When I came in as a walk-on, I defi-
nitely wanted to eventually get a scholar-
ship," Evans said. "I didn't think it would
happ h that quickly.
"The coaches here definitely helped
me get the skills and helped me compete
a lot better then I did, so I owe a lot of it
The aid of the UF coaching staff quickly
earned Evans both a place in the school re-
cord book and national recognition as, the
Gator" advanced to the NCAA Super Six
"The seniors were talking- about how
they had to sit out and watch the year be-
fore," Evans said. "And for us to make it as
freshmen is definitely a highlight.
"We got to see some of the best teams in
the country and compete against them. We
proved to them what we have and that we
have more coming."
Evans earned second team All-
American honors in floor
exercise as a freshman,
and tied the UF vault
record by scoring a 10.0
She says her affin-
ity for the sport has al-
lowed her to reach such
"That's just me," she said. "I love gym-
nastics, and to come in here every day and
work. That feels good to me."
Faehn feels that Evans has tremendous
drive that has led her to success.
"It wasn't until she was here, and we
were able to see her work ethic, and all the
hours she puts in, and her never-give-up
attitude and never wanting to leave the
gym, basically," Faehn said. "That alone
has put her in the situation that she's in."
Despite all her individual success,
Evans maintains her ultimate goal of help-
ing the team reach new heights.
"I would love for our team to win SECs
or nationals," Evans said. "That would be
"We've never done it, and I think we
have the potential to do it this year, if not
all the years after."'
UF may head to WNIT
By MICHAEL MAURINO
They may have been knocked out
in the first round of the Southeastern
Conference Tournament last week,
but the season is not over for the UF
women's basketball team.
While UF (14-14, 5-9 SEC) is prac-
tically out of NCAA Tournament
contention, the Gators could still see
The Women's National Invitational
Tournament announces their brackets
shortly after the Women's NCAA se-
lections Sunday. Coach Carolyn Peck
sees no shame in being part of the
"Any opportunity to play in the
postseason is definitely an accom-
plishment," she said. "I can't see [the
WNIT] as a disappointment."
But don't make any plans just yet.
UF's strength of schedule is in
the top-5 of most projections, but the
Gators have a .500 winning percent-
age, which may cause a problem.
The WNIT website says the tour-
nament has teams that "were not part
of the NCAA Tournament field but
still finished strong and above a .500
On that criterion, UF would be out
of the postseason. UF has lost their
last four games and nine of 11. There
may be also another snag. The WNIT
has prospective schools send them
bids to host the games, which UF
has done. Part of the bidding process
involves how much money the WNIT
can make in gate receipts at the site.
In this case UF maybe a less appeal-
"Any opportunity to play in
the postseason is definitely

The team's average draw of 1,452

because of this, an inferior team who
can pull in more fans may be picked
Peck said that if the Gators are
invited to the WNIT, the team will
accept partly because she feels
postseason experience is vital to the
program's overall success.
"We're working to continue to
improve and work to be a better
team regardless or whether if it is
the NCAA or WNIT," she said. "This
team, their number one objective is to-
go out there and play their very best.
Asheville recorded four wild
pitches while UF's pitching and
defense played nearly flawless
"Anytime there is an errorless
game it helps the pitching out,"
Catcher Brian Jeroloman also
stood out, coincidentally on the
same day as being named to the
Johnny Bench Award Watch List.
He started his night with a fence-
clearing blast off a fastball.
The sophomore had an all-
around game, throwing out
Bulldogs at second base and even
stealing a base himself.
"Tonight was neat because my
brother who plays for the Red Sox
was watching me in the crowd,"
Jeroloman said. "I've hit two hom-
ers since he's been watching me
and so I told him I'll pay him the
rest of his salary if he just stays put
in the crowd."
Jeroloman was honored with
his success but stressed the team's
"The recognition means a lot to
me," he said. "It shows hard work
pays off and I feel very special."
S McMahon was very proud of
his young catcher but made sure to
n explain a team tradition.
"We have a special something
d in our ball club," McMahon said.
n "All individual awards are team
awards. So if he wins it, you can
g be sure he will accept it on behalf

the NBA, scored a game-high 21,
including a pair of game-winning
free throws in potentially his final
UF home game.
Roberson led the SEC in league
play as the only player to average
more than 20 points (20.8). Pending
his performance in the SEC and
NCAA tournaments, Roberson
could become the first UF player to
claim a conference scoring title since
Ronnie Williams in 1982.
Roberson's first-team team-
mates include Kentucky's Chuck
Hayes, Mississippi State's Lawrence
Roberts, Alabama's Kennedy
Winston and SEC Player of the Year
Brandon Bassof Louisiana State.
Joining Lee on the second team is
Kentucky's Kelenna Azubuike, SEC
Newcomer of the Year Glen Davis

and Arkansas' Ronnie Brewer.

and momentum gained by break-
ing an eight-game losing streak-to
Kentucky, the Gators finished just

The Gators received the most
votes of any non-ranked team,
finishing six points behind No. 25
"A lot of people say negative
things about Florida, and we can't
satisfy everybody," said Roberson
after the Kentucky win. "But I do
know I play with a group of guys
that fought hard and beat Kentucky.
And that's the headline."

-Alligator Staff Writer
Words can't describe Urban
Meyer's level of excitement heading
into spring football.
At least not the words Meyer's
forced to use.
"If I didn't give up bad language
for Lent, I'd throw some language in
there and let you know how excited I
am," he said.
Lent may have to take a three-hour
daily break beginning next Wednesday,
when UF returns to the practice field
under new management.
Meyer, already a legendary disci-
plinarian from his days at Utah and
Bowling Green, held his pre-spring
football press conference on Tuesday.
And the first-year UF head coach
