TALLAHASSEE A legis-
lator who had proposed cutting
off all state funding to students
taking more than 115 percent of
the credit hours needed to grad-
uate amended his bill Tuesday
to remove that provision, partly
due to the efforts of UF Student
Government.
Rep. Juan Zapata, R-Miami,
also removed a measure that
would have allowed universi-
ties to levy a tuition surcharge
of up to 100 percent on students
whom the universities deter-
mine are taking more classes
than they need to graduate.
The twin measures could
have added up to a nightmare
scenario for UF students who
stray from their degree paths.
If, under the bill, UF chose to
enact the doubling surcharge
on tuition which without
state aid would increase to the
out-of-state rate such un-
dergraduate students could go
from studying for free on Bright
Futures scholarships to scram-
bling to cover a $31,654 yearly
tuition bill.
That number is based on
UF's 2005 tuition rates, but out-
of-state tuition is set to rise 12.5
percent in 2006.
Zapata voluntarily removed
those measures from his bill,
HB 119, in an amendment filed
at a Tuesday meeting of the
House College and Universities
Committee. The amended bill
passed the committee unani-
mously.


Legislator still wants
faster graduation
In an interview Thursday,
Zapata said the tuition penal-
ties were part of a bill-drafting
error that was corrected by the
new amendment. While he still
wants to encourage students
to graduate faster, he said he
never intended to enacf such
an extreme solution.
"College kids are col-
lege kids. If you keep
them focused, you can
save a lot of money
that can be invested
for the students else-
where."
Juan Zapata
State representative

"It's an issue we need to
address, but we don't need
to do it by being so punitive,"
he said. "But the excess credit
hours are costing the state a
lot of money. You have a small
percentage of students taking
the extra hours, which are re-
ally being paid for by all the
students who are graduating
on time."
Florida university students
who graduated in 2003 earned
337,837 credit hours over 115
percent of their degree re-
quirements, costing the state
about $29 million, according
to a study by OPPAGA, the
legislature's investigative arm.
Twenty percent of those stu-
dents earned 83 percent of the


extra hours.
Zapata said that all Florida
universities should have de-
gree-audit systems similar to
UF's, which automatically tells
students what courses they still
need to graduate on time.
"College kids are college
kids," he said. "If you keep
them focused, you can save a
lot of money that can be invest-
ed for the students elsewhere."

Victory for UF
UF Student Body President
Jamal Sowell said that in re-
cent weeks, Zapata met with
Tallahassee lobbyist Ron C.
LaFace Jr., who is paid by UF
Student Government with UF
student fees to lobby for SG in
the legislature.
In the meetings, LaFace ex-
pressed the reservations that
SG had with the bill and how
the tuition penalties could
hurt Florida students.
"This is actually a major
victory," Sowell said. "Ron
informed me about this is-
sue a while ago. We were
lobbying against the tuition
penalty language, and this is
a direct victory that we were
trying to push for.
"All those-trips I made to
Tallahassee this Spring have
paid off," he added. "It's still
early and everything, but
that's a small victory we've
won against block tuition."

SG ELECTION ISSUES

Candidates offer differing views on Reitz changes

Candidates for Student Government's
top office offered differing plans for the
administration of the Reitz Union, which

receives the lion's share of student money.
As the focal point of campus affairs,
the Reitz Union is the recipient of about
30 percent of the $11 million of Activity &
Service Fees annually.
In addition to that funding, the Student
Senate passed a bill Feb. 8 that granted a


$500,000 interest-free loan to renovate the
Reitz Union Hotel.
Student Body Treasurer and Impact
presidential candidate Dennis Ngin, who
approved the bill, said he had problems
with the loan but chose not to veto it be-
cause the Senate supported it.

County, Gainesville fire res-
cues to stay separate
Since commissions for neither
the city of Gainesville nor the
county of Alachua could come
to a consensus regarding a pro-
posed merger of their fire rescue
systems Thursday, they will con-
tinue to work independently.
County Commissioner Paula
Delaney did not see reason to
change the current system.
"If the system isn't broke,
don't fix it," she said.
The merger would address
the issue of providing fire rescue
services to outlying and unincor-

porated areas of Gainesville.
However, the commissions
found that Gainesville Fire Rescue
is doing an adequate job of provid-
ing service to all its constituents,
including those areas.
County Commissioner Rodney
Long wanted a decision made to-
day given that the city's residents
voted twice in favor of the merger.
"We owe it to the taxpayers to
do something with what we've
got," Long said.
The only two commissioners in
favor of the merger were County
Commissioners Lee'Pinkoson and
Chairwoman Cynthia Chestnut,
who said she believes the merger
would bring better service to resi-
dents outside city limits.
"People decide where they
want to live, and we provide a
service," Chestnut said.
Pinkoson added his concern
regarding service diminishing as
the city and county grow.

FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 2005 0 ALLIGATOR, 3


Ngin inspired by culture, achievement


Editor's note: This is the
third in a series of three
articles taking a closer look
at Student Body presidential
candidates.
By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
dcohenqalligtor.org

Dennis Ngin has taken a
cue from his parents' escape
from oppression through the
jungles of Cambodia and has
shown similar determination in
his campaign for Student Body
president.
Ngin's parents escaped the
clutches of the violent com-
munist Khmer Rouge regime in
Cambodia in the late 70s, and
their son was born a few years
later. Fast forward 21 years, and
Ngin, the first person in his fam-
ily to enter higher education, is
running for Student Body presi-
dent of the fourth-largest univer-
sity in the United States.
"My family came to the coun-
try with nothing," he said. "They
worked from the ground up."
Ngin, the Impact Party's
leader, said he is following his
parents' lead.
"I've earned everything," he
said. "I work very hard. I'm not
afraid to say -- and to stand up
for -- what I believe in."
Although Ngin admits that
his parents are his personal he-
roes, he said he is a "rebel inside
[his] own household. For them
I'm supposed to be a doctor or
engineer."
He is the current Student
Body treasurer and is majoring

in both political science and
marketing. He helped make
strides for Gainesville's Asian-
American community and as-
sisted in bringing the first Asian-
American cultural fraternity
to Florida. He brought the first
Asian-American studies certifi-
cate in the Southeast to UF and is
a member of Preview Staff 2005.
Earlier this week, Florida Leader

cording to Impact's Web site.
Ngin describes himself as
"determined," "passionate,"
"calm" and a "visionary."
"As a candidate, I stand for
a person that has faced a lot of
difficulties during his campaign
but never took a step back. I'm
a person that will commit myself
to doing the right thing... I re-
fuse to be pushed around."
Ngin said he is troubled
by corruption in Student
Government, despite the fact
that his former party, Access,
won last year.
"That is why-I am running
- to take a stand against cor-
ruption," he said. "I believe in
the ability of government to do
the right thing. And the job is not
done yet. There is still more to be
done."
Ngin wants to replace the
"outdated" video games in the
Reitz Union Game Room and


implement a philanthropic cam-
pus-wide recycling program that
would allow organizations to
donate their earnings to a group
of their choosing.
He also said he wants to use
a GPS system on a "couple" of
RTS buses in order to hold them
accountable. He called the idea
a "long term investment for the
benefit of the student body" that
would help with campus park-
ing problems.
Ngin calls his party's plat-
form an "agenda."
"The timeline represents ac-
countability. We are not running
to be officers. We are running to
do work."
Ngin also said he is a student-
oriented candidate.
"I'm not running to be
elected Student Body president
but to be a servant of the stu-
dent...to have every student be
my president."


SG debate


tonight

* THE FORUM WILL ALLOW
CANDIDATES TO ASK QUES-
TIONS OF EACH OTHER.

By BRIDGET CAREY
Alligator Staff Writer
bcarey@alligator.org

Tonight students will gain an-
other chance to probe the presiden-

tial candidates before Tuesday and
Wednesday's Student Government
election.
An Alligator-sponsored debate
will be held at 9 p.m. in Reitz
Union Room 286. Joe Goldberg of
the Gator Party, Dennis Ngin of
the Impact Party and MacKenzie
Moritz of the Progress Party are
scheduled to attend.
A unique feature of tonight's
debate is that the presidential
candidates will have the power to
ask their own surprise questions to
their opponents.
The debate coincides but is
not affiliated with Gator Nights.
Following the debate and next
week's election, the winning can-
didate and his party will have
sway over nearly $11 million in
student funds for the next year.
Heated campaign issues of
legacy positions, deal-making, the
annihilation of a student-support-
ed online voting ballot initiative
by the SG Supreme Court, the UF
administration's possible alcohol
policies and eliminating student
voter apathy were some concerns
touched upon in debates this past
week.
The audience will be able to ask
questions of the three candidates
and learn more about each party's
platforms and promises.
The- Alligator co-sponsored
a debate with the UF College
Republicans earlier this week for the
Abraham Lincoln Debate Series.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Reserve excess in debate


By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
smgarry@alligator.org

With an election looming, Student
Government candidates are promising free-
bies like printing, a wireless campus and mu-
sic downloads, but, few have addressed the
taxes students pay to support those services.
Last semester, UF raised the Activity &
Service Fee that supports SG to $8.64 per
credit hour for the 2005-2006 academic year.
For a student taking 15 credits, that's a total of
$129.60 per semester, or at least $1,036 for an
undergraduate degree. The fee has increased
for four consecutive years and has risen 45
percent over the last 10 years.
Meanwhile, SG maintains millions of dol-
lars in savings.
"I think that we could better allocate the
money for A&S Fees," said Dennis Ngin,
Student Body treasurer and presidential can-
didate for the Impact Party. "We don't need
to raise A&S Fees if you have reserve money
sitting around and doing nothing."
SOn July 1, SG had $3.9 million in savings,
but statutes require it to keep only $750,000.
Since then, SG has tapped into more than $1
million from its reserves for projects like Reitz
Union renovations, wireless ethernet and the
Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol (SNAP).
SG has no automatic redistribution of
funds if reserves meet the required level, like
some other universities do. Instead, it allows
student groups to.make special requests for
money out of savings.
"I think the fact that reserves were at that
high a level (shows) we do need to re-evalu-
tate the system we have in place," Gator Party.
presidential candidate Joe Goldberg said. "I
don't think it should be that high."


The Student Body president has direct ef-
fect on whether or not the university raises
the fee. The winner of the election will ap-
point students to serve on the committee that
recommends the fee level for the next year.
Inflation and growing student group mem-
bership may require a fee hike, said Susan Vaz
Henriques, who works in SG Finance and is
running for Student Body treasurer with the
Progress Party.
"It's reasonable that the A&S Fee has to in-
crease, but it doesn't have to as much as it has
in the past," she said.
"I think that we could better allocate
the money.for A&S Fees. We don't
need to raise A&S Fees if you have
reserve money sitting around and
doing nothing."
Dennis Ngin
Student Body treasurer and Impact Party
presidential candidate

Voice Party treasurer candidate Justin
Lauer said SG's reserves are too high and the
money should be spent on 24-hour study cen-
ters and Sunday bus service.
"The level of reserves is too high, and some
of the money should definitely be spent in the
very near future to benefit all students," he
said.
From 2001-2003, SG has spent a little more
than $1 million out of reserves. Both years, the
A&S Fee increased.
However, SG Finance has no target level
for reserves in comparison to the budget. On
July 1, SG savings equaled nearly 40 percent
of the budget, bringing the total amount that
SG controlled to more than $14 niillion.


UF technology could prevent future Columbia disasters


By SKYLER SMITH
Alligator Writer
ssmith@alligator.org

New UF technology could pre-
vent another disaster like that of
the space shuttle Columbia.
In January 2003, a chunk of
Columbia's insulating foam broke-
off and damaged the heat-resis-
tant tiles on the left wing, ulti-
mately causing the shuttle to burn
up in the Earth's atmosphere.
Spaces within the foam, which


cause pieces to break off and
can't be detected without rip-
ping the foam apart, have been
blamed.
However, UF nuclear engi-
neering professor Ed Dugan and
retired UF professor Alan Jacobs
are pioneering the use of an X-ray
backscatter machine that can be
used on the foam.
The device works much the
same as a conventional X-ray ma-
chine used for medical purposes.
With normal X-ray machines, ra-


diation is shot through a target to
film on the other side.
With the backscatter X-ray, the
radiation particles "scatter back"
and provide an
UF image.
Research "The big rea-
son for going
with backscatter is because some
objects you can only get to one
side," said Dugan. "It's difficult
because when you get a chest
X-ray you get 90 percent on the
film. We're lucky if we get one-


tenth of a percent."
Originally used for landmine
detection; the technology has
been adopted by engineering
firm Lockheed Martin.
- According to a press release;
Lockheed Martin originally pro-
vided UF with samples of foam
with both known and unknown
voids. The backscatter detector
found all major flaws.
The company now has three of
the $100,000 backscatter machines
at its Michoud Assembly Facility


in New Orleans, while NASA has
one in Huntsville, Ala.
This technology, is ideal for
the foam used on space shuttles,
Dugan said, because the foam is
so low-density that other applica-
tions didn't work.
"People at NASA likened it to
finding smog in clean air," Dugan
said.
Lockheed Martin is now using
its detectors to scan the foam on
the shuttle Discovery's external
fuel tank and a backup tank.

Amended bill a 'major victory'; legislators still want speedy graduation


BILL, from page-1


the Florida Students Association,
said that while he is pleased the
tuition penalties were removed
from the bill, there likely will be at-
tempts later during the legislative
session to impose similar penalties


or some form of block tuition. SB226, that would allow children

said. "We have reasons to be cau- in-state university
tiously optimistic, but I wouldn't Student tuition if they gradu-

grants' children proposed In Zapata's bill, as long as the
The newly amended bill is students promised to become legal
now similar to the Senate bill, permanent residents as soon as pos-


sible, up to 2,000 of them could file
claims with the state Department of
Education to claim Florida residen-
cy. If more than 2,000 students apply,
high school GPAs will determine
which of the students can claim in-
state tuition a difference between
$2,955 a year versus $15,827 for out-
of-state students.
Zapata said it was important
that students who have played


by the rules and graduated from
Florida high schools not be pun-
ished for the mistakes of-their
parents who came to America
illegally.
"We made an investment in
these students already," he said.
"These are very good, top-qual-
ity students, and a college degree
will help these individuals con-
tribute to the state."


Current Reitz Union contract forbids debit card usage in most of building


REITZ, from page 1


funds, by far the largest portion of A&S Fee
expenditures.
Additionally, between 30 and 40 percent
of Gator Dining Services' business takes
place within the Union, according to former
Reitz Union Director Dave Kratzer, who was
recently promoted to associate vice president
for student affairs.

Lack of reserves in question
In addition to A&S Fees, the Union receives
funding from profits made by businesses in
the building through commissions. All of
the Union's profits go back into the building,
because it is not allowed to have a reserve of
funds.
"It's not a Wal-Mart. It's not a profit center,"
Krazter said. "It's-a student union, which is
fortunate in that we have student activity fees


and our own generated income that support it.
Things that do not generate income, [such as]
the student activities area, the general lounges,
the building itself... All of that is supported by
those two sources."
But Progress Party presidential candidate
MacKenzie Moritz said he feels that the Union
should be able to have its own limited reserve
fund available which, according to Ngin, the
Board of Directors at the Union has wanted
for some time.
Moritz cited a faulty sewer valve discov-
ered over Winter Break as an example of why
the Union should be able to collect money in
a reserve.
Through the current system, the Union was
forced to request $100,000 from the Senate for
repairs, and the money was not granted until
Feb. 8, leaving the contractor awaiting pay-
ment for several weeks.
While Moritz was a major supporter of the
loan, Ngin and Gator Party presidential can-
didate Joe Goldberg have both been vocal in


their disapproval.
Goldberg said that the hotel renovations,
while necessary, are not an immediate benefit
to students and did not warrant a loan.
"In my four years at the University of
Florida, I've been in the ho-
tel twice," Goldberg said.

No CITF money
Both Goldberg and
Moritz pointed out that
the Capital Improvement
Trust Fund, or CITF, which
Moritz -distributed funding last
summer and does so every
three to five years, didn't provide any funding
for the Union.
Goldberg and Moritz criticized the current
administration for excluding the Union from
the distribution of funds.
"[Student Body President] Jamal [Sowell]
just decided not to give any money to the
Reitz Union this year, which is disappoint-


ing," Moritz said, noting the lack of funding
provided by CITF justified the Feb. 8 loan.

Debit cards a no-no
Ten of the 29 Gator Dining Services loca-
tions are located within the Union, where
vendors pay a square-footage rent as well as a
commission on sales, which is divided evenly
between UF and the Union.
The fourth-floor Arredondo Room is the
only location that accepts credit and debit
cards as well as the Gator 1 Card's declining
balance.
Vendors are limited from accepting credit
and debit cards because of a UF contract
with Aramark Management Services Co.,
which is responsible for Gator Dining
Services.
Each candidate said they would support a
renegotiation of the contract when it expires
to include debit and credit cards but worried
the hassle of confirming cards would add to
an already long wait in the food court.

Editorial
It's come to the attention of the Department of Darts &
Laurels that recent editions have been deficient in, well, Laurels.
We're not as pessimistic as we seem, honest. But in the interests
of fairness, we promise we will make an effort to seek out the
positive as well as the negative however hard that may be.
As we begin our search for the silver lining in even the most
unlikely places, we cast our sights on the Student Government
candidate debates that have been taking place all week. We
think it's a noteworthy step toward student access that the can-
didates are taking so much time to speak to the students.
See, that wasn't so bad. Maybe there's something to this
whole positivity thing. But then again, this is SG we're talking
about the candidates mostly are spouting carefully planned
campaign rhetoric and attacking the other candidates. Oh well.
But we did promise you a Laurel, and a Laurel you shall
receive. So put on your best suit, get your write-in questions
readyF and prepare to argue your way through this week's edi-
tion of...



Darts & Laurel

Because we respect someone who can take a step back
and laugh at themselves, we bestow an it's-about-time-you-
showed-some-of-your-sugary-frosting-side LAUREL to Gator
Party presidential candidate Joe Goldberg for describing him-
self as a "Frosted Mini-Wheat" during a debatebn Wednesday.
He emphasized that he could relate to the cereal because it was
"mini," like himself. While we may disagree with some of his
stances on issues, we have to give props where they're due.
Unfortunately we have to turn around and toss an it-looks-
like-you're-going-to-maintain-your-equilibrium-DART-to-
LAUREL-ratio DART to Goldberg for essentially turning his
back on the issue of online voting during the same debate.
Sure, he has plenty of good reasons why online voting
shouldn't be brought up during the election cycle, and he was
sure to emphasize that he supports it in general. Ultimately,
those reasons simply are convenient ways for him to get the
public relations boost of supporting an idea that threatens the
status quo without doing any work toward making it happen.
Switching gears to the heated area of good old-fashioned
mudslinging, we throw a yeah-maybe-it's-true-but-don't-you-
think-there-are-some-more-important-issues-out-there DART
to Voice Party treasurer candidate Justin Lauer for spending
a large portion of his speaking time in a Monday debate at-
tacking Impact Party treasurer candidate Michelle Lightbourne
for financial decisions she made as president of the Benton
Engineering Council. His allegations centered around a lack of
funds for the council's "E-Fair" for engineering students.
Yep, that sounds like an important issue that all students will
want to hear about. Twice. In the same debate.
Continuing with some more interesting allegations from a
surprising source, we give a there's-a-time-for-no-more-Mr.-
Nice-Guy-but-this-isn't-it DART to Progress Party presidential
candidate MacKenzie Moritz for abandoning his party's pre-
vious dedication to running a clean campaign by accusing the
Impact Party of attempting to bribe him not to run.
While we can't say we doubt his claims, this was a surprising
departure from the positive campaign run by the Progress Party
so far. It was also fairly polite, as serious bribery accusations go.
Make up your minds, Progress: If you want to run clean, run
ocean. If yol want to attack the other candidates, at least go all-
out so that you have a chance of accomplishing something.
.Finally, we deliver a parting this-maybe-could-have-been-
a-LAUREL-but-we-don't-want-to-reward-complaceny DART
to Dennis Ngin and the Impact Party for not really saying
anything to get us excited about. They didn't particularly attack
the other candidates, but they didn't say anything that made us
want to vote for them either.
Unfortunately the truth in politics is that the adage, "If you
can't say anything nice, then don't say anything at all," doesn't
apply. The reality is more like, "If you can't say anything bad
about the opponents, you'd better at least have some good ideas
of your own."

Opinions

Guest column

Don't take columns seriously -


f there's one thing I enjoy about writing this column,
it's the topics other people tell me I should write
about.
At least once a day, someone I'm talking to has a
"brilliant" idea for this space, and if I don't use his or
her idea, I'm a "fool." Mostly, people feel that I should
write about them that their daily life is far more
fascinating than the rubbish I usually opine about.
Occasionally, however, I get a more unique or interest-
ing idea.
My friends always want me to write about our latest
escapades, be it Gasparilla'in Tampa or Spring Break
in the Keys ("We all got spectacularlyhammered. The
end.").
If I'm at a-card table, there is another theme I could.
use ("I krw, you could write about poker! Why don't
you write about poker?")..
Then there are the drunk people who discover
that I'm a columnist (You write for the Alligator? No
waaaaaaay! You know what you should write about?
You should write how sometimes when you go to a
club, and a girl is all over you at the club, and you take
her home from the club;,but then all she wants to do is
talk. What is that?)
When I hear gold like that, it just makes my day.
You see, I love feedback of any kind even hate mail.
Make that especially hate mail. Why? For one, it lets me
know you're at least paying attention. And for two, I
absolutely love the thought that some nonsense I wrote
irritated people enough for them to take time out of
their day to let everyone know how much they disliked
what I wrote about bicycles, or Student Government, or
Thefacebook.com.


I honestly get a kick out of it.
Why is it, by the way, that
when readers enjoy my article,
they tell me individually, but
when they dislike it, they need
everyone to know? I think it is
.Andrew Meyer indicative of us as people, but
Uncommon Sense damned if I know what it means.
letters@alligator.org I'm guilty of this myself on
occasion, so I'm going to publicly
praise Bridget Carey for her piece
that outed SG elitism and Jason Levitt for his Ward
Churchill column a while back, even if Levitt currently
is under fire for his comments on China (and by the
way, isn't Fei Long a Street Fighter character? Someone
needs to look into that).
Don't get the wrong idea; I enjoy positive comments
as much as anyone, and I actually get more positive
than negative (and not to self-promote again, -but I
post responses to my column online at freewebs.com/
newforum, with a reply). I'm just the kind of guy who
enjoys rubbing some people the wrong way. Sorry,
but I can't help myself. If I feel that anyone is taking
themselves too seriously, I have to poke fun at them,
and thus, you end up reading about me running for SG
dictator. When youread a column like that, try to re-
member one thing: Never take me too seriously. If I call
everyone at UF a moron, understand that I'm kidding
(mostly). If you're frustrated with the opinion (or lack
thereof) in this column, hey, I'm with you! If I read half
the things I wrote, I probably would get pissed off too.

Guest column

Impact treasurer was not bribed to switch party affiliations


Want everyone reading the recent elec-
| ton coverage to recognize one thing: The
gator holds a monopoly on reporting.
This campus will not enjoy a thorough debate
of ideas as long as one publication maintains
such a stranglehold on political commentary.
That being said, let's get to the point.
I organized the now-infamous "Valentine's
Day meeting" that included former Student
Body President Marc Adler, Student Sen.
Jackie Pace, presidential hopeful Joe Goldberg
and David Meyrowitz. The purpose of this
meeting was to offer Meyrowitz an oppor-.
tunity to discuss with campus leaders the
direction the Gator Party was pursuing. I was


Jason Sherry concerned Meyrowitz
Speaking Out was using his position
as the president of the
Business Administration College Council to
pursue his own political aspirations, and I
wanted to give him and us an opportu-
nity to sit down and discuss the position of the
BACC and the upcoming election.
Let's be clear: At no point was a single
person offered anything, either within Student
Government or elsewhere, nor was anyone
offered anything of any monetary value. I
didn't even pay for Meyrowitz's lunch. As a
matter of fact, I afterward made it a point to
look Meyrowitz in the eye and say, "David,


I want it to be clear, at no point did anyone
offer you anything during this meeting." He
responded, "Oh yeah, I know." I'll challenge
the University Police Department to reopen its
investigation into that meeting and consider.
a charge of making false statements to a law
enforcement officer for the purposes of influ-
encing an election. Or perhaps Judicial Affairs
would like to investigate this.
Meyrowitz who, coincidentally enough,
is now the treasurer of the Impact Party was
not offered a dime to switch to another party.
He seems to overestimate his worth by think-
ing we would want to pay him to support us.
I've spent three years in SG, two of those as


a Student Senator, and I've never seen anyone
bribed. That Meyrowitz claimed it was "obvi-
ous" that we were offering a bribe is upsetting
and a reflection of the type of person he is.
The Impact Party realizes it's in a weak po-
sition right now, so it's trying to attack the pil-
lars of support of its opponents.Those groups
that withdrew support never were offered
bribes; they withdrew based on their own cog-
nition. To those who claim otherwise in hopes
of swaying an election, I'll jtist say that, in the
future, your reputation will precede you.

Administration senator from the Innovate
Party.

Sororities go retro


for charity dance


By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
kcraig@alligator.org

UF sorority members busted
out their best dance moves
Thursday night at Phi Kappa
Tau Fraternity's Midnight
Madness line dance and karaoke
competition.
The event, which raises
money for The Hole in the Wall
Gang, an organization support-
ing terminally and chronically
ill children, raised more than
$5,000 for the cause, fraternity
President Brian Galgay said.
"We saw how much money
Sigma Chi (Fraternity) raised.
Hopefully in a few years we'll
be able to meet that," he said.
"Our goal was $2,500, but
because of the turnout we'll
probably make a lot more,"
Phi Kappa Tau Philanthropy
Chairman Cristos Ifantidesizo


said of the event.
Kappa Delta Sorority kicked
off the event with a performance
of Salt-n-Pepa's "Shoop." The
members donned afro wigs and
basketball jerseys while -lip-
syncing to the song.
A group of judges, including
Galgay, judged the performanc-
es on style, costumes, accuracy
and dance.
One of the high-
Gr ek lights of the evening
came with the per-
formance given by
members of Alpha Epsilon Phi
Sorority.
During their performance of
the song "Carwash," members
stripped off their shirts to reveal
bikini tops and wiped each other
down with wet sponges.
Alpha Omicron Pi Sorority
came out on top, winning the
overall competition and taking
home a first-place trophy.


Tricla Coyne / Alligator Staff
Members of Delta Zeta Sorority belt out, "Look at me, I'm Sandra Dee" from the musical "Grease" to the
lively crowd of the 13th Annual Phi Kappa Tau Midnight Madness event Thursday night.


OFF THE AVENUE

Students rock to Reel Big Fish, local acts at IRHA show


Ska band Reel Big Fish has inspired the
world to skank for the last 10 years
skankingg being the dance ska kids do,
for those of you not in the know).
And skank UF students did 2,500 of
them, to be exact.
"I see you ladies and gentleman took
care of the chair situation," said Reel Big
Fish guitarist Scott Klopfenstein.
The 700 students swarming the floor
area of the Stephen C. O'Connell Center
took it into their own hands,to provide


themselves with more dancing room, pass-
ing chairs over each other's heads, during
the Reel Big Fish concert Thursday night.
The Inter-Residence Hall Association,
in cooperation with Student Government
Productions, hosted IRHAPalooza, a free
annual event for students that has brought
in national musical acts.
In past years, IRHAPalooza brought
acts such as Phish, The Mighty Mighty
Bosstones and Unsung Zeros to UF.
Local ska outfits One and Done and


One Pump Chump
opened the night.
"Playing with
Reel Big Fish
rocks," said Evan
Jacqueline Cantwell, UF senior
Davison and One Pump
Playlist Chump's trumpet
player. "They're a
solid band and they
put on a great show.
I've liked them for years, and it's an honor


to share the stage with them."
Although the locals played their hearts
out, students were there for Reel Big Fish.
"I have been listening to them for. a
while because my older brother was a
fan," said UF junior Susan Scott.
IRHAPalooza is part of Residence Hall
Week, which provides free entertainment
ranging from video game competitions to
dance showcases for students. However,
doors were open to all who wished to at-
tend.

Rec. By

By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
kcraig@alligator.org

When asked which Student
Government party his frater-
nity would be supporting, Sigma
Alpha Epsilon President Travis
Santos joked, "Whatever the frat
party is."
According to an Alligator sur-
vey, there is a good chance Santos
will find his choice in The Gator
Party.
Of 22 Interfraternity Council
fraternities contacted, 16 said
they would be officially sup-
porting The Gator Party in the
upcoming SG election.
While many of the surveyed
organizations said they would
officially support the party, some
were leaving it up to their mem-
bers to make the choice on their
own.
"I don't think our job is to
force our guys to vote for some-
body. I think that's a misconcep-
tion," Sigma Pi President Peter
Gonzalez said.
Lambda Chi Alpha members
said they would be supporting-
the Impact Party, making the fra- -
terfiity the only IFC organization
to officially support a party other.
than Gator.
"I really don't know why the
so-called Greek system contin-
ues to support the same party,"
President Rudy Schmiedecke
said.
Sigma Nu Fraternity officials
said they were still undecided on
who they would support:


As for the Panhellenic Council,
only five of the 13 sororities con-
tacted said they would officially
'back The Gator Party. Five others
said instead of backing a certain
party, they would leave it up to
their members to make their own
decision.
"I'm a big proponent of them
doing .their own thing," Alpha
Omicron Pi Sorority President
Michelle Meyer said. "It's not
like I'd really ever know who
they vote for."
Alpha Epsilon Phi, Zeta Tau
Alpha and Delta Phi Epsilon so-
rorities were the only Panhellenic
S chapters to re-
fuse comment
on their prefer-
ence for the
elections.
Gator Party

candidate Joe
Goldberg Goldberg said if
he wins, he won't feel solely in-
debted to the Greek community
for his victory.
"I'll be a servant to the entire
student body," he said.
None of the. organizations
comprising the -National Pan-
Hellenic Council or Multicultural
Greek Council returned calls for
comment.
Calls also were not returned
from Delta Zeta or Sigma Kappa
sororities from the Panhellenic
Council, as well as Delta Upsilon
and Pi Kappa Alpha fraternities
from the IFC.
SG elections take place March
15 and 16.


Senate debates break


A PROPOSAL GIVES AN
EXTRA WEEK BETWEEN SE-
SMESTERS NEXT YEAR.
I
| By EMILYYEHLE
Alligator Writer
I eyehle@aligator.org

Next Fall, UF students will
I get an extra week to celebrate
Sthe winter holidays if the Faculty
Senate passes the proposal in the
Next few months.
According to a calendar
for the 2005-06 academic year
recommended by the Senate's
Curriculum committee, students
Should get three weeks of winter
vacation and one less day of class
Each semester.
S The Fall and Spring semesters
would end one day early to leave
an extra day for commencement,
Said committee ,member Joanne
SRichards, interim associate dean
of nursing.
As for the additional week of
Winter break, she said she was
unaware of any effort aimed to
extend the vacation.
I Senators will be able to discuss
I the changes at the Faculty Senate


meeting Thursday but won't yet
vote on it.
The proposal would change
not only the 2005-06 academic
year but also the 2006-07 year.
Richards said it's possible
some professors may dislike los-
ing one class day.
"For some faculty, it may
change how they have
class structured. But any
time you change the calen-
dar, it impacts somebody."
Joanne Richards
Interim associate dean of nursing

Discussion on the calendar at
a Senate steering committee fore-
shadowed that unease.
Some members sugge.sted
adding an extra day at the begin-
ning of each semester to make
up for the loss, but others said
that would mean students would
eventually be starting the Spring
semester on New Year's Day.
"For some faculty, it may
change how they have class
structured," Richards said. "But
any time you change the calen-
dar, it impacts somebody."

Loss energizes UF


against Spartars


COACH SAYS PROGRAM
ISN'T FOR EVERYBODY.

By TIM CASEY
Alligator Writer
tcasey@alligator.org

In case the baseball players for-
got what happened on Wednisday
night, they got a reminder at prac-
tice yesterday.
The scoreboard was turned on,
still showing the final score from
the 8-5 loss to UNC-Asheville. UF
hopes for different results against
Michigan State this weekend.
"This isn't a program for every-
body," Coach Pat McMahon said.
"The demand that we put on play-
ers is that we want self-starters and
[players who] understand that hard
work is how we get better.
"We'll have. guys hitting early
in the morning or late at night, at
1 or 2 a.m.," McMahon said. "I'm a


big believer that you work yourself
out of problems and you get better
when no one's watching. You need
to have the confidence and a work-
ing plan to do that."
The No. 6 Gators (12-4) did
not have much information about
-. UNC-Asheville
prior to the two-
game series, and
face a similar
situation against
the Spartans.
"I don't know
if we have much

Gators return to site of defeat


By CHUCK BAER
Alligator Writer

No one likes finishing in second
place, especially if it happens twice
in a row in the same town.
The UP men's track team will
try to avoid just that when it trav-
els to Fayetteville, Ark., this week-
end to face the best track team in
the country on its home track.
'I'd never want to call
Fayetteville, Ark., -home," said
Coach Mike Holloway. "But we're
going to have to make it home this
weekend."
The Gators' last trip to
Fayetteville was for the SEC Indoor
Championships, where they fin-
ished second to the Razorbacks.
155-92.
The men's team refuses to go
into this meet focused on anything
but its goals.
"Fayetteville is Fayetteville,
and I can't say too much about
Fayetteville," said senior Josh
Walker, who is seeded third in
the 60-meter hurdles. "It's a great
facility to run at, and there's great


competition. I go into it as I do
every meet."
Sophomore Mike Morrison
looks forward to returning to the
Randal Tyson Track Center.
"There's not a day gone
by when I-don't re-live that
meet."
Tom Jones
UF track coach

"It's a great facility to jump
at," said Morrison, who is ranked
second nationally in the high jump
and fourth in the long jump. "I
think we have the advantage go-
ing back there, because we go there
so often during our conference
[season]."
The team also features sopho-
more Kerron Clement, who leads
the nation in the 400-meter dash
with the second-fastest collegiate
time this season, as well as the
third-best mark in the 200. Clement
will also run on UF's top-ranked
4x400-relay team with freshman


Bernard Middleton and juniors
Stefan Pastor and Sekou Clarke.
In addition, freshman Richard
Adu-Bobie will runin the 60-meter
dash while senior Steve Zieminski
will run the mile.
The fourth-ranked women's
team looks to match or improve
upon last year's second-place fin-
ish.
"We lost by one point last year,"
Coach Tom Jones said. "There's not
a day gone by when I don't re-live
that meet."
UF brings in some of the best
field athletes in the nation, includ-
ing the best weight thrower in the
nation, Candice Scott.
Scott holds the current colle-
giate record in the event; and won
the NCAA title in 2004 and 2002.
"Anything can happen," Scott
said. "I don't put anything past
anyone. That's the way it goes in
sports."
She will be competing against
teammate and junior All-American

A tourney like no other

pen.
The basketball gods owe it to the % orld of college oops.
Kentucky and UF played two of the most compelling games that
the Southeastern Conference saw all seasonn And the way the SEC
Tournament is structured, it all lines up for the Gators and the 'C'-1
to meet for the championship.
Each team held serve on its homecourt
during the regular season. But with just four
points as the combined difference, that po-
tential one last game is bound to be a classic.
SUF finally tossed the monkey off its
Brian Shaffer back, ending its eight-game losing streak
Sh-f At Home against Kentucky in the season finale. But
ome the Wildcats have to be steaming, with re-
bshaffer@alligator.org venge on-their minds about possibly losing
a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament with
that loss.
One more time, it'd be nice to see David Lee and Chuck Hayes
go at it. One more time, and everyone would. know if UF really
can beat Kentucky at its own game. One more time, and Anthony
Roberson would have another chance to hit the three that puts the
dagger in Big Blue before (gulp) taking his game to the pros.
But much like the Colts trading Edgerrin James to the Dolphins
for Patrick Surtain, it just makes too much sense for it to actually
happen.
The tournament bracket will play itself out and somewhere
along the path to the championship game one or both of these
teams will lose.
The SEC might be down this season, but there are still some
good teams in the league. Alabama and Louisiana State would
love nothing more than to rain on the parade that would be a UF-
Kentucky championship matchup.

UF ROUNDUP

Tennis takes on pair of SEC opponents


I THE SOFTBALL TEAM TRAVELS TO
.ONG BEACH STATE FOR A TOURNEY.

In its second week of Southeastern Conference
)lay, the UF men's tennis team hosts two teams
n hopes of running its league record to 4-0.
Competition begins today at 4 p.m. against
Janderbilt. The 40th-ranked Commodores enter
he match 8-3 in regular season play and 0-2 in
-he conference.
While Vanderbilt ranks significantly lower
:han the Gators, men's tennis coach Andy
ackson insists that rankings at this point in the
;eason can be deceiving.
"Vanderbilt is off to a rocky start, but they are
:ontenders to be a Sweet 16 or Final 8 team," he
;aid. "We'll have to play well to compete with
:hem."U
Vanderbilt has beaten UF in its last two meet-


ings and brings to the court a strong doubles
pair in Scott Brown and Jason Pinsky, currently
ranked 27th.
Following today's match, the Gators have a
day to rest. They return to the court on Sunday
at 1 p.m. to face No. 28 Kentucky. Last week,
the Wildcats were ranked 12th before falling to
Mississippi and Mississippi State. -
Jackson doesn't have his team focusing much
on,Sunday's match, insisting the Gators must
win against Vanderbilt before they can worry
about becoming 4-0. Still, he acknowledges that
Kentucky is a talented team with a chance to
win.
"That's the SEC if you come to play, you
have a chance," he said. "If not, you're going to
lose."

Redshirt junior Chris Brandi said the Gators may have gotten a little down on themselves
after playing, but not defeating, some top teams recently.


In their final weekend before opening
Southeastern Conference play, the No. 16
Gators (17-6) will travel westward this weekend
and take part. in the Long Beach State Softball
Tournament.
The Gators will open play today against
Loyola Marymount (8-5) and Indiana (6-12), and
will conclude the tournament with games against
San Diego State (15-8) and No. 25 Long Beach
State (12-7) on Saturday.
"We know that we're going to have to play
well to do the things that we want to do both on
offense and defense, so we're just going to stay
with that and try to build up momentum before
going into Arkansas [next week]," said softball
coach Karen Johns.
UF left fielder Lindsey Cameron, who has
been on a tear in recent weeks, will enter the tour-
nament looking to add to an impressive stat line.
Batting .342 and leading the team in hits, home
runs and RBI, the junior said that she's never felt
better at the plate.
"My confidence is back to where it wias in
my freshman year," Cameron said. "I feel really
comfortable now and I've been working hard, so
it's good to see that the hard work has been pay-
ing off."
Instead of viewing this weekend's tournament
as just another long road trip, the Gators seem
confident that their long voyage could be prepa-
ration for the upcoming conference schedule.
"It's a great opportunity to be on the field with
the level of play and with the level of intensity
that these teams in California have," Cameron
said. "We couldn't have asked for a better time
to come out here right before our conference
schedule to get pumped up and play the cali-
ber of teams that we have to play."
Cameron, however;won't be the only UF
player excited to play this weekend. Sophomore
Lauren Roussell, the only California native on the
team, grew up only minutes away from the tour-
nament's host stadium and will finally get to play
in front of her hometown friends and family.
She pointed out before the season that this was
the weekend she was most looking forward to.
This will be UF's first-ever matchup with ei-
ther Loyola Marymount or Long Beach State. The
Gators are 2-0 against Indiana and 1-0 against San
Diego State.

will face the Gators for the first
time since 1965, when each team
won a game in a Miami tourna-
ment. It was the only time the
schools have met.
Michigan State has not an-
nounced who its starting pitch-
ers will be. Junior right-hander
Tim Day (2-0, 3.75 ERA), junior
left-hander Chris Malec (1-0, 4.22
ERA), sophomore right-hander
Craig Brookes (0-0, 5.00 ERA)
and freshman Mark Sorensen (0-
0, 6.75 ERA) each have two starts
this season.
Junior right-hander Bryan Ball
(30). will start tonight for UF, in
place of Alan Home. Home had
started every Friday night game
this season, but will rest his arm
and possibly start on Sunday.
Ball has been the Gators' most
potent starting pitcher, posting
an impressive 1.40 ERA in 25.2
innings.
"I think with Bryan Ball, his
goal is to establish consistency,"
McMahon.said. "He's a competi-
tive young man. He's worked so
hard on pitching, pitching to all
parts of the plate, and controlling
runners. I'm anxious to see how
he continues that quest."
Senior right-hander Tommy
Boss (2-0, 5.09 ERA in 17.2 in-
nings) will start for the Gators on
Saturday. UF has not determined
who will start on Sunday.
Sophomore Gavin Dickey
seems to have earned a return to
the starting lineup, while Stephen
Barton may move to third base if
junior shortstop Justin Tordi can
play this weekend. Tordi missed
Wednesday's game with lower
back spasms. It was the first time
in the last 96 games he did not
start for the Gators.

In the shot put, senior Liz Wanless is

throw of 17.80 meters, followed by Scott,
Mvith a throw of 17.45 meters.

The Gators also boast sophomore
Tiandra Ponteen, who ran a time of 51.47
n the 400 at the SEC championships, the
)est time in the nation for the event.
Ponteen will join Zanquandria Joseph,


Natalie Knight, and Nadine Palmer in
the 4x400 relay.
"I think a lot of the teams are a lot
more balanced this year," said associate
head coach Larry Judge. "I don't see a
dominant team."For us, all of our quali-
fiers are very experienced and we have
people that are ranked very, very high
in each one of the events. We feel like
we can be right in there, if everyone hits
- and of course, with a little help from the
other teams as well."
The NCAA Indoor Championships
kick off today, with competition slated
to begin at 10 a.m. The event will air on
ESPN2 on Wednesday at noon.


SHAF, from page 19


And while the Wildcats seem to make
a habit out of getting to the final game, it's
not that simple for the Gators. Prior to reach-
ing that point last season, UF had suffered
through a stretch of conference tournament
disappointments.
But regardless of which teams reach the
championship game, experts around the
country are sleeping on just how compelling
this tournament is going to be..


Kentucky (however overrated they may
have been) was No. 3 in the country just last
week. UF and LSU are surging late in the
season. And while Alabama and Mississippi
State may have lost games along the way,
they didn't lose any talent and are still plenty
good enough to go. on a deep postseason
run.
You can have the ACC and the Big East.
Some of the best basketball in the country
will play out on the Georgia Dome floor.
And if everything works out for UF and
Kentucky, Sunday's championship game al-
ready has 'instant classic' written all over it.

exhausted and aching, which can at least
partially explain tlhe upset loss against

During this year's regular season, the

will mean three games in a row, starting today

Golf looks for Vegas luck


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Writer

Buddy Alexander's money is on Manuel
Villegas this weekend. As the Gators travel to
Las Vegas, Nev., for the Southern Highlands
Collegiate Championship, the UF men's golf
coach is betting on the redshirt freshman to
fill a void.
"This is the best field of the year
with very little doubt in my opin-
ion. There's not a weak team in
the tournament."
Buddy Alexander
UF men's golf coach

Four Gators rank in the top 63 of the
*olfweek individual ratings, but the fifth UF
golfer, Villegas, falls way back at No. 362.
"We're struggling a little bit at the No.
5 spot with [Ryan] Cochran and Manuel
Villegas and Duke Butler [IV]," Alexander
said. "Those are the three guys that are fight-
ing for that fifth spot."
Thanks to solid play from Matt Every,
Brett Stegmaier, James Vargas and Richard
Treis, UF claimed two wins and a runner-up
finish in its last three tournaments.


"Those four guys can carry the load in
the spring and they're going to play every
tournament from now on unless there's an
unforeseen problem," Alexander said.
But to make a postseason run, Alexander
wants to shore up that final spot.
"I think in a perfect world you'd like
for your [No. 5] guy to kind of step up
and be obvious," Alexander said. "I would
hope that somebody would start playing
extremely well and just blow the other two
guys away"
, Alexander never would have lost sleep
had Jessie Mudd been able to recover from
an ankle injury this year. As ofnow, however,
the sophomore will take a medical redshirt.
"If Jessie were to all of: a sudden start
really playing well and we were still strug-
gling with the fifth guy and Jessie wanted
to do it, then we could call the redshirt off,"
Alexander said.
UF will need stronger play from its No. 5
position, starting today in Las Vegas. All 15
tournament opponents rank in the top 25.
Every team ranked in the top six will
compete, including the only team to defeat
UF this spring, No. 3 Georgia.
"This is the best fieldof the year with
very little doubt in my opinion," Alexander
said. "There's not a weak team in the tourna-
ment."


Divers drive for NCAAs


* THIS IS UF'S LAST CHANCE TO
QUALIFY FOR CHAMPIONSHIPS.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer

It's all about consistency.
If the UF diving teams have that at
the NCAA Diving Zones this weekend,
they'll be in the national spotlight. If
not, it may be a long trip home, said
diving coach Donnie Craine.
Craine is looking forward to UF's
last chance to qualify divers for the up-
coming NCAA Championships. New
opportunities have given the team a
renewed sense of hope.
"The best part about [this meet is that]
if they are on, and dive well, it is not a
matter of how well you have done all
year. [It is] just right now," Craine said.
"You could almost compare it to a bas-
ketball tournament. It's one-and-done."
While the Gators may only have one
opportunity to qualify, Craine feels that
if the divers keep up the momentum
built at the conference meet, they can
look forward to the NCAAs.
"I haven't had to say much; they
know what to expect," Craine said. "If
Zach [Wilcox] and Nicole [Bolt] dive the
way they did in conference, they'll go to
NCAAs. If they don't, then they won't.
We need a repeat performance."
Wilcox, an All-American, and Bolt


are UF's lone diving seniors, but they
will have some youthful, eager allies.
Joining them will be sophomores Vitor
Assuncao and Justin Schmidt and junior
Chris Comfort. Both the'seniors and the
younger divers are hoping to contribute
as much as they can, and the swimmers
are counting on them.
"The swimmers feel a lot better
about what they can-do, knowing that
[a diver] can get some points," Craine
said. "If you make it through our zone,
it is a pretty good bet you will score
points at NCAAs."
Bolt hopes to be one of those to have
an impact, and to bring desperately
needed success to the women's diving
team.
"It definitely would be an incredible
experience," Bolt said. "A woman diver
has not made it through for several
years. If I perform like I did in confer-
ence, then I should be good to make
it. We just have to go out there, have
a good time, try our best, and land on
[our heads]."
The Gators' younger swimmers do
not have the experience of Wilcox and
Bolt, but Craine knows that his seniors
will solve that problem.
"The best thing about older athletes
is that [the younger divers] see what
they can do, and that is a huge differ-
ence," he said. "Older guys have the
tendency to take pressure off younger
guys."
