State may ban aid for foreign students
By JAMES VANLANDINGHAM
Alligator Staff Writer
TALLAHASSEE A bill that would
ban state universities from granting finan-
cial aid to international students who are
in this country on student visas is working
its way through the Florida Legislature.
House Bill 21 and its identical Senate
companion, SB866, would still allow for-
eign graduate students to receive fund-
ing as part of work-study programs for
serving as teaching or research assistants.
Those students.could also still receive fi-
nancial aid from private sources.
But the bill would require universities
to stop giving state-funded scholarships to
the approximately 1,657 foreign students
that the Florida Department of Education
says are studying in public universities
with state funding.
The House bill passed the Colleges and
Universities Committee 9-0 Tuesday after-
noon, and a legislative staff analysis from
that committee reported that $5.7 million
could be saved by cutting such students
off from their funding. An additional $2
million could be plucked from such stu-
dents in community colleges.
That money would then be spent
to provide need-based scholarships to

Search still on
for UF student
By ELIZABETH PRANN
Four UF exchange students remain in Costa Rica
to search for their missing friend.
In a phone interview from the Central American
country; longtime friend and classmate Peter
Nienaber said the search for UF exchange student
Brendan Kieran Dobbins has been both a land and
a sea hunt with the assistance of the Red Cross and
"We have yet to have any luck,"
He added Dobbins' father will
arrive in San Jose on Thursday
evening to meet with Dobbins'
friends as well as Canadian
Embassy officials, who handle the
affairs of Australian citizens in the
Dobbins Central American nation, to get
maximum exposure for the search.
Nienaber said the Costa Rican investigation
has been "concerted;" however, he said there is
a stark difference between their efforts and those
that would have been done in the United States or
"It's been quite frustrating," he said. "Hasn't
been particularly good."
However, Nienaber said the Canadian Embassy
has been "fantastically helpful and supportive 24

MacKenzie Moritz could tell you
how to chomp your way through
hard times and still smile.
"Being a Gator is not the most
popular thing down there," he said
of his hometown, Lynnhaven, Fla.
"I think my first grade teacher was
rather disappointed that I didn't
become a Seminole."
However, living in hostile terri-
tory might have been easier than the
Progress Party leader's Spring Break
trip to Washington, D.C. While there
he served the homeless in soup
kitchens. Later in the week, he took
a trip through their world.
Moritz, 21, rubbed baby oil in
his hair, put dirt on his face and
was given nothing but 50 cents for
an emergency phone call. For two

ate in shelters.
"It's been somewhat of an inspi-
ration to me," he said. "Although we
really didn't sleep on the trip, I came
back energized because I knew I was
doing the right thing."
Moritz's positive outlook trans-
fers to his self-image. He said he sees
himself as "motivated," "idealistic"
But despite his relaxed nature, he
said he is running for Student Body

Moritz said he wants to see more
students get just as involved in SG.
"My main goal is to break down

to get involved," he said.

And the hard part is exactly

on setting up satellite offices in each

Within five years, students may
find they have one fewer medical

of Gainesville said.
In a letter to Congresswoman
Corrine Brown, Mayor Pegeen
Hanrahan said "substantial renova-
tion" is needed to keep Shands at
AGH's accreditation. "I'm trying to
keep the hospital open," she stated.
However, Shands Marketing

Lance Skelly said despite a Joint

"Shands at AGH passed its last

fully expect to earn re-accreditation
again this year during [the commis-
sion's] routine visit," Skelly said in
an e-mail Wednesday.
But Congresswoman Corrine
Brown previously expressed con-

February and asked to be involved
in the process of overhauling the

Shands CEO Tim Goldfarb de-

"We are not seeking federal aid,"
Skelly noted about the involvement
However, Hanrahan said she

mentioned holding a community
meeting about AGH.

Adams raises awareness for UF research projects
By EMILY YEHLE
UF could help fight the war on
terrorism, support "frail elders" and
eradicate exotic pests if a whirlwind
of Washington lobbying convinced
legislators to fund research projects
Tuesday and Wednesday.
UF Vice President for University
Relations Jane Adams visited sever-
al Florida representatives this week,
including Sen. Mel Martinez, to gar-
ner support for 10 projects totaling
$41 million in federal funds for the
2006 fiscal year.
The trip was Adams' first step in
raising awareness for UF's research
priorities, after administrators chose
their Top 10 list of project priorities.
"We had two criteria: how the
project fit into the university's goal
and how it fit into the congressional
mission," Adams said.
UF officials also tried to spread
out the requests over different fed-
eral agencies, she said.
"All appropriations call for cer-
tain kinds of bills. We don't want to
get into a situation where we're com-
peting against ourselves," she said.
Three of the projects would re-
ceive funding from the Department
of Defense, and four mention the
research's tie to war or terrorism.
Two of those projects ask for $5
million each in research funding to
improve military technology and
protect infrastructure networks,
such as transpor-
tation and com-
S terrorist attacks.
q. Six' of the
-[ projects did not
last year, includ-
Martinez ing one that
would use $3.5
million to spread the use of technol-
ogy to monitor the health of elders,
For the first time, UF is also re-
questing $5 million to help complete
the construction of a laboratory that
would research proton beam cancer
treatment. The facility could give
the new treatment to 2,000 cancer
patients a year, according to UF's
report on the project.
And some legislators also were
interested in a new doctoral pro-
gram for nurses to help mitigate
the shortage of nursing faculty. UF
would work with UNF, FAMU and
FSU to spread the program and
eventually enroll more students in
baccalaureate nursing programs.
Furthermore, $10 million was
requested from the Department of
SAgriculture for T-STAR, a program
that works to find environmentally
friendly ways to eradicate and con-
tain non-native pests, such as foot-
and-mouth disease and fire ants.
These threats are "heightened by
the potential for terrorist-induced
attacks on the nation's food supply,"
according to the report. For the past
three years, the project has received
approximately $9 million annually..
Adams said meetings went well,
despite them marking her first time
lobbying in Washington. As a for-
mer Walt Disney Co. vice president
of government relations, she only
worked at the local and state level.
I "It's been very productive," she
said. "I enjoyed it."
Speaker recounts positive democratic changes in Iraq
* DAN SENOR CAME TO UF AS PART
OF JEWISH AWARENESS MONTH.
By KATE STOREY
Alligator Contributing Writer
American interference in Iraq was an
overall good move despite mistakes made
along the way, said Dan Senor, senior adviser
to Presidential Envoy L. Paul Bremer III, to a
crowd of approximately 100 on Wednesday
Senor spoke about the positive democratic
changes he witnessed in his 15 months in Iraq.
His appearance was the'second program for
Jewish Awareness Month. It was co-sponsored
by Accent, UF speakers bureau, and took place
in the Reitz Union Rion Ballroon.
"It is important to look at the good and
bad news in Iraq in context of the challenges,"
Senor said during his speech.
Senor, who is currently a spokesman for
Fox News, told stories of the suffering of the
Iraqi people and about the changes he saw
during his 15 months there.
He said his best memory from his time
in Iraq was working with the Iraqi press as
the spokesman for the Coalition Provisional
Authority. He saw the media options in Iraq
transform from having a few state-run news-
papers under Saddam Hussein's regime to 200
Senor spoke about the challenges-that still
exist. and how Americans can understand
what the Iraqis are dealing with. Two of the
challenges he focused on were the psychologi-
cal infrastructure of the Iraqis and security.
Senor drew a diverse crowd, ranging from
students interested in the current affairs in Iraq
to those interested in the Jewish
On Awareness Month agenda.
CamipUS UF political science major
and self-proclaimed "political
junkie" Joel Lombardi, 19, came
to hear Senor speak on current events as wit-
nessed from a first-person viewpoint.
"I've read about Senor in political analysis
and Web sites," Lombardi said. "I'm interested
in this topic, and I wanted to see what he had
Jewish Awareness Month Chairwoman-
Rachel Matthew, along with Accent Chairman
David Buchalter, decided on Senor for the
agenda because of his political accomplish-
ments and his Jewish faith.

had a strong Jewish background," Matthew

UF-Pepsi negotiations ensue
* PEPSI OFFERED UF A SLIGHTLY MORE
LUCRATIVE CONTRACT THAN COKE DID.
By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
University officials did not take student taste
into account when considering whether to negoti-
ate a 10-year contract with Pepsi or Coke. UF is
close to finalizing an exclusive agreement with
Pepsi Bottling Group.
"This is a business deal," said Ed Poppell, vice
president for finance and administration. "It's not
about the personal preferences of Coke versus
Instead, university officials said they serve stu-
dent interests by seeking the highest offer possible
in their negotiations with Pepsi, which proposed a
$27 million, 10-year contract in September.
Coca-Cola Co. proposed $26 million over 10
years if UF agreed to a five year extension after
the first five years of service, according to a Sept. 27
partnership proposal. However, the total figure is
still under negotiations.
"As far as studentinput, the role of [the negotia-
tors] is to get the most amount of money with the
best prices and service that go back to the students,"
UF Business Services Division Director James
Morgan said, adding that he expects an announce-
ment about the negotiations' conclusion by April 1.
The university's Coke contract expires on Aug.
16. If Pepsi wins the contract, the university's signs,
soda fountains, scoreboards and its 600 vending
machines will be converted to Pepsi by that date.
The University of Florida Foundation, University
Athletic Association, Shands Healthcare, UF busi-
ness representatives and the university's lawyers
participated in negotiations, but no students were
involved and no measure of public opinion taken.
"I think they're very, very similar," Morgan said,
adding that each company offers a diet cola and
Pepsi offers several products that Coke does not
- including Gatorade, Dr. Pepper, Mountain Dew
and Starbucks Frappuccinos. "We haven't been able
to sell things like that before because of our exclu-
sive agreement with Coke."
Including students in the negotiations would be
difficult because of the time commitment and the
complexity of the issue, Morgan said.
Both Pepsi and Coke offered perks
Student for students in their September pro-
Life posals. Both .promised to offer sum-
mer internships to UF students. Coke
promised two summer internships
each year, while Pepsi boasted hiring 16 UF gradu-
ates since 2000.
Pepsi offered $3.8 million in scholarships and
student and faculty appreciation as a part of the
deal, but Poppell and Morgan would not say
whether scholarship awards are being considered
separately from the total sum.
If the deal is finalized, they do hope that some
of the money could qualify for State Matching Gift
Programs, where the state of Florida matches some
or all of the amount of some large donations to UE.
"We've had an outstanding partnership and
relationship with Coke," Morgan said. "Until this
Pepsi contract is finalized, that's still the modus
In addition, both companies proposed increas-
ing the number of vending machines on campus
and keeping product prices the same in the first
year of the agreement. After that, the price would
be left to market forces.

arships, the bill could decrease
the amount of private financial
aid funds available to residents
if universities redirect those
funds to foreign students to
allow them to continue their
None of the House or Senate
bill sponsors returned calls
seeking comment Wednesday.
Luis Suarez-Isaza, presi-
dent of UF's Volunteers for.
International Student Affairs,
or VISA, said the bill was an
unfair shot at foreign'students
that would hinder UF in at-
tracting the best and bright-
est students from around the
"If you're a bright and am-
bitious student in Germany,
you might as well go to France
instead of the United States be-
cause it won't be as expensive,
there won't be the visa hassles,
and there won't be the feeling
of 'we don't want you here,'"
Moreover, foreign graduate
students go on to perform vital
roles in this country's science
and research community, where
America is producing too few
homegrown scientists to remain
globally competitive, he said.
Maria Rodriguez, coordina-.
tor of the Florida Immigrant
Coalition, said that Florida stu-
dents' educations are enriched
when universities bring in the
most diverse base of knowledge
possible, including students
from foreign countries.
UF has approximately 2,700
international students, accord-
ing to the International Center
Web site. Currently, the site
says, "there is very little finan-
cial aid available for foreign na-
tionals to study in the U.S. Most
grants, scholarships and loans
from public and private sources
are restricted to U.S. citizens."

Reversal of online voting
refusal changes nothing
The Student Government Supreme Court received a slap
on the wrist from Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski
Tuesday when he invalidated its denial of the online vot-
So, the court's refusal to allow the initiative onto the ballot
was reversed. That means the initiative will be on the ballot,
Dean Gene's halfhearted rebuttal of the court's actions did
nothing but perpetuate the cycle of irresponsible actions taken
against students by SG and the administration.
This is inexcusable, and it shows clearly that the administra-
tion is unwilling to spend even a moment of their valuable time
worrying about what is best for the students.
Presidential candidates MacKenzie Moritz and Dennis
Ngin appealed the court's decision, asking that the initiative be
placed back on the ballot. It seemed only natural that if the court
were overturned, the initiative would go back on the ballot.
Sure, Dean Gene invalidated the court's denial. Good for
him he used his power as adviser to SG to take action against
an inappropriate use of the authority entrusted to the Supreme
Court by the students.
At the end of the day, however, the online voting petition still
is not on the ballot. A reversal of a decision that doesn't actually
change the outcome is worse than useless. If the effects of the
invalidated decision stand, there is no reason for the court to act
any differently in the future.
The bottom line is, the court met in secret. There's no other
way to look at it: They had a meeting to determine the fate of
an issue that students overwhelmingly support, and they didn't
tell anyone about it.
Apparently, court officials have convinced themselves that
their private meeting was not illegal because they are not bound
by Florida's Sunshine Laws.
We disagree with this wholeheartedly. They are justices
handling and adjudicating issues of public money student
money. Their constituents are entitled to be involved and to
criticize the process, in exactly the same way they are with any
other public body in Florida. They equally are entitled to appeal
for any reason that strikes them.
But if their appeals are going to be answered only with limp-
wristed chastising of those who have done wrong, students
can't be faulted for giving up and thinking, "What's the use?"
This sort of wishy-washy response to political malfeasance
sets a dangerous precedent.
Bright-eyed young SG hopefuls will see that they can break
the spirit of the law at will and receive no tangible punishment
from administrators who could care less what happens in stu-
dent politics. As long as they don't mind an Alligator article or
two about how they violated the students' trust, they'll have a
free pass to do whatever they want.
Again, students can't afford to stand by as their interests are
blatantly ignored time and time again by SG officials who only
look out for their own interests especially if we can't count on
our administrators to respond appropriately to foul play.
In the unlikely event that anyone somehow remains uncon-
vinced that the students overwhelmingly support online voting,
we propose a test. In polls run in the Alligator over the past few
years, students routinely have voted in favor of online votingby
large margins the "yes" column nearly always receiving 70
percent or more of the vote. We think this trend will continue.
Students: if you want online voting, surf over to the Opinions
section of www.alligator.org and cast your vote. It may not be
the same as having it on the electoral ballot, but it's a start.
So what's it going to.be?

Letters to the Editor
Alligator sets priorities on wrong issues
Editor: As seniors, we have witnessed
the downward spiral of the Alligator. You-
have gone from a reasonable school paper
to toilet paper. In Monday's issue, every ar-
ticle was about the Kentucky game or Student
Government elections. I'm sure there was
some event in the world more important than
the Kentucky game. I'm as happy as anyone
about UF's victory, but I don't need to hear it
in four articles and a cartoon. And no one cares
enough about SG to warrant nine pieces. Did
you not notice the depreciation of the dollar or
the war in the Middle East? Or can you simply
not afford an Associated Press article? It's a big
world, Alligator acknowledge it.
Brock Adams and Matt Canini
Shady deals in SG needed to be revealed
Editor. I applaud Bridget Carey's ar-
ticle "Name war deliberate" from Tuesday's
For too long, there has been a. code of si-
lence about the back-door deals that are pres-
ent at all levels of the Student Government
As someone who has fought for average
student representation in all facets of SG, it
feels good to know that the Alligator is look-
ing out for the people who want to have a fair
shot at properly utilizing the A&S fees that
should belong to all students, not only to those
who align themselves with one organization
Give credit where it's due for democracy
Editor: I know that taking credit for things
you had nothing to do with is common in poli-
tics, but Bush taking credit for the spread of
democracy in the Middle East is absurd.
Palestinians only voted Mahmoud Abbas
into office because Yasser Arafat had died two
months earlier. Unless Bush was responsible
for Arafat's death, he cannot take credit. The
Lebanese are pushing for democracy and
freedom from Syria because someone, from
Syria decided to kill Rafik Hariri, a pro-inde-
pendence former Prime Minister of Lebanon.
Again, if Bush had anything to do with the
assassination he might be able to take credit.
Throughout our country's history, we've sup-
ported the Saudi family's stranglehold on
their country. Given the Bush family's close
ties with the Saudis, W's policies have been no
different. So how can Bush take credit for the
elections that have taken place there since last
November when we have pushed so much
harder elsewhere for democracy and gotten
nothing? I fail to see the cause and effect. Iraq
is the only democracy Bush can take credit for,
but at what cost? More than $200 billion has
been spent and more than 1,500 American sol-
diers are dead with no end in sight.
Democrats made the mistake of letting
Republicans claim that Reagan won the Cold
War. We cannot allow the same thing to hap-
pen again. Not only is it factually wrong, but it
denigrates the brave actions of Arabs actually
fighting for their right to vote.

Concerts to fill Phillips
The American Bandmasters Association,
a group noted for offering its exclusive
membership to only the finest wind band
directors in the world, held the first concert
of its 715t annual convention Wednesday at
the Curtis M. Phillips Center for Performing
The concert began at 7:30 p.m. and fea-
tured the UF Wind Symphony conducted
by David Waybright with special guest art-
ists Karl Leister, principal clarinetist of the
Berlin Philharmonic, and the popular brass
ensemble The Boston Brass.
"ABA conventions are truly gala occa-
sions, combining glittering social events, sig-
nificant professional gatherings and superb
band music performances," Waybright said.
The concert also included the world pre-
miere performance of "Backwater Catfish,"
a new composition by Pulitzer Prize nomi-
nee and UF music faculty member Paul
Wednesday's was the first of a four-con-
cert series ending on Sunday.
All events in the series are free and open
to the public, but tickets are required.
And while Wednesday's opening pro-
duction was described as especially fantastic,
Waybright is thrilled about all four concerts.
"This town literally will be filled with
the sounds of trumpets and trombones,
woodwind instruments and horns of all
kinds playing the music of revered compos-
ers like Francis Scott Key, George Gershwin,
Johann Sebastian Bach, Gustav Hoist, Sergei
Rachmaninoff and John Phillip Sousa," he
Friday's concert promises a rousing and
patriotic concert by the United States Army
Field Band at the Phillips Center.
Saturday's concert will feature The
Winthrope Olde English Wind Ensemble
at the University Auditorium instead of the
Leister and the Boston Brass also will
conduct free master classes, which are open
to the public.

vidual concerts, please go to http://

March to May to bring piano rock to The Shamrock
By NATHANIEL DEAS
I remember my freshman year.
Between illegally downloading
music in the dorm Ethernet con-
nection, classes and gawking at
random females, there wasn't
a great deal of time to focus on
much of anything.
But for the four members of
March to May, things are a little
Originally based out of Winter
Park, the members of March to
May have stayed busy during
their first year at UF by writing
songs, playing live shows almost
every other week and recording
an ambitious self-titled CD.
"It is a six-song EP with our
ideas about the world," lead
singer and piano player Michael
Boynton explained. "Not in a
weird emo-obsessive perspec-
tive, but what you see in your life
but don't acknowledge."
Along with Jesse Jackson,
Doris Delay and Doctor Odd,
March to May will be playing
Shamrock Saturday night for the
official album release party.
"We've put a lot of thought
and time into the recording,"

Members of March to May are making the most of their relocation to UF by working on a six-song EP. The
band will play Saturday at The Shamrock.
members of the band said via
e-mail. "In general, if you enjoy
music, you will enjoy our EP. We
want more than that though, we
want people to listen to it, ana-
lyze it and figure out the mean-
ing of what we have produced."
Bassist Carl Nyburg described
the recording process.
"It was a great bonding time
for the most part," he said, "ex-
cept for when Michael yelled
at us and kicked us out of the
Guitar player Mike Pensky
added that the EP, which was
recorded at Wade Studios, took
a lot of time and effort to com-
"We gave up a lot of sleep for
it," he said.
Influenced by Coldplay,
Radiohead and Death Cab for
Cutie, the band strives to sepa-
rate themselves from other local
bands and features an original,
"We would-like to make music
that people will truly appreciate
for many years to come," drum-
mer Aubrey Way said.
Based out of Miami, Jesse
Jackson offers an up-tempo folk,
blues and jazz sound, while
Doctor Odd is a three-man local
unit specializing in pop rock.
Doris Delay comes from Orlando

Dear Pissed Off by Pillow Talk,
But, if you insist on being a gentleman, there
is certain hook up etiquette you can follow.
Instead of employing the "get off and get out" method, try
what I like to call "rinse, lather and repeat."
Take a shower together after you've finished bumping and
grinding. It doesn't require much talking, and it usually ends
up being more dirty than clean. And by then she should be so
exhausted that she won't notice you making a break for it, right?
Towel off, say your goodbyes and head for
the door (or the window, whichever- is closer).
When she's at your place, don't offer her a T-shirt or any
other article of your clothing that could be confused for
pajamas. Be sure to keep mentioning what a busy day you
have ahead of you (do this before
you take you clothes off, prefer-
ably much earlier in the evening).
If she doesn't get the hint, flat out
tell her to feave. However, do this
only if you wish to never speak to
and/or hook up with her again.
What's so bad about staying the
night, anyway? Alarm clocks have
nothing on A.M. action. You get
morning wood for a reason.

pecially when wrapped up like adorable sleeping pigs).
The truth is, size doesn't matter to everyone (and no,
I'm not just saying that to keep the not-so-well-endowed
guys from jumping off buildings).
Just like penises vary greatly in size,-so do vaginas.
Some women can only accommodate something on the
smaller size, while others need something bigger to feel
fulfilled. And then, there are plenty ladies happy to get
whatever.comes their way (cough, cough).
Plus, only the first few inches of the vagina
are filled with nerve endings, so a four inch pe-
nis doesn't feel that much different than an eight
inch one (that is, until it impales your uterus).
My advice? You can ditch this dude and embark on a
search for the mythical 12-inch crotch rocket that will
launch you into orgasmic orbit. Or, you can take a stroll
through a few locker rooms and realize all the gigantic
gents you see in pors are genetic freaks.
So, stop counting inches (or centimeters) and start count-
ing your-blessings. Someone to do the nasty with? Check.
A good physical connection with said person? Check.
SBesides, the penis is a distant third to a man's most valu-
able sex organs: the tongue and fingers.
Pickled Fish wants clubbers to try dancing to a new beat

Local music stores offer alternative to mainstream
By COLIN MCCANDLESS
Tired of disposable, flavor-of-the-month,
mainstream bands promoted by corporate-
chain music stores? Filter the Clear Channel
pool, because Gainesville is home to great,
locally owned and operated record shops
offering a diversity of titles and genres from
the familiar to the obscure. The independent-
run venues listed below even carry vinyl, not
something you'll find at Best Buy or Circuit
HYDE & ZEKE: A Gainesville institution, Hyde
and Zekes first opened its doors in 1977.
Owner Charlie Scales' selection of used vinyl
records is so vast he can't even display them
all on the shelves. They offer every type of
music and feature an excellent selection of lo-
cal bands. They buy, sell and trade music, but
they also buy and sell guitars and turntables.
They even carry 8-tracks.
H&Z is a ticket outlet for shows at the
Common Grounds, Eddie C's and other com-
munity music venues. They occasionally hold
all-ages shows inside the store, and Scales said
he plans on hosting more all-ages performanc-
es soon, so younger kids have a place in town
to watch music.
Hyde & Zeke is situated at 402 NW 10th
St. off North Main Street with ample parking,
away from traffic. Their hours are 11 a.m. to
6 p.m. every day except Fridays, 11 a.m. to 7
p.m., and Sundays, 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Call 376-
1687 for more information.
NO FUTURE RECORDS: No Future Records,
started by Gainesville native Alex Leon in
January of 2004, offers indie rock, hip-hop
and punk on vinyl and CDs. NFR features
independent releases, including everything
from local bands to Modest Mouse. NFR also
serves as a ticket outlet for Common Grounds
and has held two in-store acoustic shows. Last
October, NFR helped sponsor The Fest, a huge
three-day punk/indie music festival present-
ed in Gainesville entertainment venues.
No Future Records is situated at 107 N
Main St. across from The Top. Just look for the
futuristic mural of the red robot and giant eye-
ball attacking each other with broken records.
Store hours are Monday through Saturday
from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m., or call 373-9669 or e-
SMOKE: Smoke, part of the Gainesville inde-
pendent music scene for nine years, features
the biggest selection of electronic music and
equipment in town, including drums, bass
and breaks. Three local DJs work at Smoke, so
come talk to the experts.
They sell tickets for upcoming shows at the
Common Grounds, the Market Street Pub and
the Ultra Music Festival, the largest gathering
of DJs in the country.
Smoke is situated at 1007 W University
Ave. Hours are Monday through Thursday
11 a.m. to 3 a.m., Friday and Saturday they're
open 24 hours and Sunday it's 11 a.m. to mid-
night. Call 379-7670 for more information.
WAYWARD COUNCIL: The Wayward Counil,
a non-profit, volunteer-run record store, just
celebrated its fifth anniversary in Gainesville.
They sell new and used punk, hardcore, hip-
hop and pop acts on vinyl and CD. Prices here
a bargain. Their focus is carrying artists from
independent labels such as Gainesville's No
Idea Records. The WC hosts not-for-profit
benefit shows in their store to support differ-
ent people in the community, and the back
serves as practice space for area musicians.
The WC is open Tuesday through Sunday
noon to 8 p.m. They are situated at 807 W

NESkimos, Select Start to groove with game tunes
By CHAD SMITH
Remember when video games were com-
prised of one-dimensional, pixilated charac-
ters and settings? Remember when you had to
blow into a cartridge to get the game to start?
Remember when all the theme music came
from a synthesizer? These bands do.
Tonight the NESkimos and Select Start will
turn The Shamrock into a 1980s living room,
playing themes from classic Nintendo games.
You name it, if you can remember it, and
you'll probably hear it from Mega Man II
The NESkimos, hailing from St.
Augustine, have a guitar-driven sound.
Guitarist Dan "Wily" Henuber had been ex-
perimenting with game themes for a few years
before he heard a Japanese metal band playing
songs from the game Castlevania.
"I freaked," says Henuber. "I immediately
went into action and talked the rest of the guys
into it. It took some beer, but not that much."'
- At nearly the polar opposite of Nintendo
theme-covering bands sits Gainesville's
Select Start a cellist, two violinist, a
keyboardist, a guitarist, and a flautist.
Their classical arrangement presents sev-
eral obstacles. Classical instruments demand
a great deal of talent, which isn't much of a
problem for the members of Select Start.
It also is hard to get self-proclaimed "gam-
ing nerds" together to do much else than
talk about video games, as guitarist David
Yasensky explains, "Our first sessions were
horrible; we spent most of our time discussing
how wonderful Final Fantasy IV was."
The market of bands playing Nintendo
theme songs may be small or hardly exis-
tent. But that means little to these bands who
simply love video games and music.
The NESkimos have achieved some success,
playing on the MTV Video Game Countdown,
but mainstream fame is not their objective.
Nor is it for Select Start, which Yasensky called
If you long for the days when memory
cards were science fiction and you shot at fly-
ing ducks instead of police officers, you won't
want to miss this show.

UF alumnus creates buzz with new 'Alien' cartoon
By ARLYN HERNANDEZ
Cary Silver never imagined his
inte spent at UF as a theater major
01 )ears ago would transition him
to sunny California, not as an actor
but rather a producer of cartoons.
The 42-year-old Californian gradu-
ated from UF in 1985. During his
time at the university, he fancied
himself a thespian, acting in sev-
eral musicals around town. After -a
short-lived trip to Miami to pursue
an acting career, Silver took a drive
in the summer of '86 to the West
Coast to find a job. Little did he
know that soon after this move,
his acting career \ would come to an
abrupt stop, and a new door in ani-
mation would open.
"I fell in love with animation,"
Silver said. "I just liked the whole
buzz about it."
More than a decade and dozens
of animation projects later, he is
working as producer on the new
cartoon "Pet Alien" for Cartoon
Network. The cartoon, which first
aired Jan. 23 at 10 a.m., was broad-
cast all over the world, including
France and the United Kingdom.
"It's a lot of hard work, but I
have fun," he said. "I have the best
job in the world."

Novelists' cloning stories hardly mirror images
T e modern day Mary Shelleys are coming down from
Last month, the .British government gave lan
Wilmut, the creator of Dolly the cloned sheep, the nod to do
what'Americans are going to argue over for some time to
come: the cloning of human stem cells.
In the next month, two books in which writers start grap-
pling with the social and moral questions raised with work
like Wilmut's will hit the shelves.
British novelist Kazuo Ishiguro's long-awaited book
"Never Let Me Go" will be released the first week of April
and Kevin Guilfoile's "Cast of Shadows" arrived in local
stores last week.
Ishiguro, author of "The Remains of the Day," sets his
story in the late 1990s from the point of view of 31-year-old.
Kathy H. None of Ishiguro's characters have last names
- playing into their intentional incompleteness.
Through a narrative that serves as part romance and part
the tale of reconciliation of childhood friends, Kathy de-
scribes her childhood in a "student" home called Hailsham.
Hailsham seems like an orphanage with a dark secret.
Only Ishiguro's characters are not your "Oliver Twist"
orphans living downtrodden lives fighting for a chance to
overcome the hand fate dealt them.
Kathy and her friends are clones
living sheltered lives existing for the
purpose of growing up to become
transplant organ donors. Those
would be donors of vital organs.
Cher Phillips Ishiguro.creates a world in which
Off the Press cancer is fully curable and the result

I read the flap. and the advance
from the publisher. I was entirely
cognizant of these characters' fates. Yet as I read the last
chapters, I couldn't shake this Chuck-Heston-screaming-
"Soylent-Green-is-people" feeling in the pit of my stom-
If "Never Let Me Go" has a fault it would be the initial
pace is excruciatingly slow. Be forewarned. This is entirely
"Cast of Shadows" is faster paced, pokes a stick at many
of the same questions that "Never Let Me Go" does but is
an entirely different kind of novel. Guilfoile's book hosts
a myriad of characters playing.God against the backdrop
of a mystery. Leave it -to an American novel to toss these
questions around with a serial killer running around in the
Davis Moore clones embryos for infertile couples. Moore
takes on the role of God when his teenage daughter Anna
Kat is murdered. He discovers evidence of the killer's DNA
returned to him in her personal effects. The teaser for this
one is: "How far would you go to look into the face of your
The answer is Moore will go unbelievably far.
While laws prevent him from cloning his daughter and
reason prevails in his recognition that Anna Kat's clone
wouldn't be the daughter he lost, Moore decides to clone
the killer so he can see what his daughter's murderer looks
While "Cast of Shadows" strengths are in it's plotting
and pacing, it didn't resonate in my mind like "Never Let
Me Go" has, coming back and bothering me when I am
walking to class or driving home like a really good book
I can see "Cast of Shadows" as perfect in paperback by
the pool. "Never Let Me Go" will release in March interna-
tionally, but you'll have to wait until April in the U.S. Look
forward to it.

Jnearned runs remove vision of victory for Gators
By TIM CASEY
Here was no joy in Gainesville
ighty Bryson had struck out.
UF dropped the second game
its midweek series to UNC-
leville 8-5 Wednesday, sending
)arse crowd of 329 home disap-
nted after sitting in rain and cold
Iperatures for three and a half-
Freshman Bryson Barber stood at
plate with the bases loaded, his
n down by three. With two outs
and a full count, Bryson struck out
swinging to end the game.
The Gators (12-4) loaded the
bases and scored a run without get-
ting a hit in the bottom of the ninth
"That's the kind of game you al-
ways dream about," UNC-Asheville
coach Willie Stewart said. "Of
course, if you're on this end, you
almost wake up- in a nightmare.
It's the fun in baseball. If we didn't
have exciting games like this, I don't
know if people would wait to come
The Bulldogs rallied to win by

mentum and those last

scoring four unearned runs on two
hits in the top of the ninth inning
against UF closer Darren O'Day.
Freshman Bryan Augenstein
made his first career start, pitching
three innings, striking out two and
allowing four runs on four hits and
O'Day entered the game with
the bases loaded and one out in the
sixth and induced an inning-ending
"At that time, I really thought we
had the momentum and those last
three innings, I was going to do my
job, we'd get a couple of runs and
win it," O'Day said.
Junior shortstop Justin Tordi
ended his streak of 96 consecutive
starts. Tordi injured his back diving
for a ball in the sixth inning Tuesday
night and sat out with back spasms.
Second baseman Adam Davis
took Tordi's place at shortstop,
while Stephen Barton filled in for
Davis, leaving an opening for Gavin
Dickey in left field.
Dickey went 2-for-3 with an RBI,
a double and a stolen base.
"Tordi is the staple of our team.
He's a leader on and off the field,"
Dickey said. "He's the cornerstone
of our infield. It was a little differ-
ent without him. We had guys fill in
pretty nicely in his absence."

Crowder looks to secure first-round spot
to NCAA meet
The No. 2 UF men's track and field team will send nine
athletes in 10 different events to the 2005 NCAA Indoor
Championships, held March 11-12 at the Randal Tyson Track
Center. The fourth-ranked women's team will travel nine ath-
letes in seven events to the meet.
The men's squad finished tied for second at the NCAA
Indoor meet in 2004 with a program-best 38 points, and will
look to finish in the top 10 for the sixth time in the last 10
"We got just about everybody in that we thought we
would," UF men's track and field coach Mike Holloway said.
"We're a little disappointed Shane Stroup and Dwight Ruff
didn't get in, but we're looking forward to the challenge ahead
of us. This might be the most balanced squad we've had. It's
probably also the most confident team we've had. Everybody
is healthy and well-rested, and we're ready to go."
The women's team also finished second in 2004 with a
sum of 51. points and has ended the Indoor meet in the top
five in six of the past nine seasons.

Big Three shine

Alligator Staff Writer
Four of the Gators' starting five members, were
awarded All-Southeastern Conference team honors by the
league's coaches Tuesday.
Junior guard Anthony Roberson was
one of three players to receive first team
All-SEC honors with a unanimous vote
of the 12 league coaches.
"I think Peep was definitely deserv-
ing," junior guard Matt Walsh said.
"He's had some scoring outbursts
some 30-plus point games."
Robern Senior forward David Lee made the
eight-player first-team roster for the
first time in his career.
Walsh, who averaged 12.3 points and a team-high three
assists per game, received second team honors for the sec-
ond consecutive season.
Freshman forward Corey Brewer, who has a team-
leading 38 steals this season, was honored as a SEC All-
Freshman Team player.
Kentucky coach Tubby Smith, who led the Wildcats
to their 43rd SEC championship this season, was also a
unanimous selection for Coach of the Year after receiving
the same award from the Associated Press on Tuesday.
Roberson, the only player to average more than 20
points per game in league play, was honored with his sec-
ond first team All-SEC selection in as many days.
The SEC scoring leader, however, fell just short of
Louisiana State sophomore forward Brandon Bass for the
coaches' SEC Player of the Year award.
After being named SEC Player of the Year by the AP,
Bass swept both honors, edging out Roberson, 5-4, in the
Alabama junior forward Kennedy Winston, also a
unanimous first-team selection, received two votes, while
Kentucky senior forward Chuck Hayes garnered one.
"I laid it on the floor, laid it on the line, and everybody
Shas their own opinions," Roberson said. "But Brandon
Bass is Player of the Year, so I'm happy for him."
Said Walsh: "Brandon Bass is a great player, too. But if
you're asking me, I'd have voted for Peep."
