BOARD OF TRUSTEES

In-state tuition safe for now


By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
smgarry@alligator.org

UF students are not likely to see block tuition
or unlimited tuition hikes next year, as universi-
ty officials said Monday that they are not work-
ing to gain control over in-state tuition from the
Florida Legislature in this session.
"Block tuition has kind of receded as an
issue," said Carlos Alfonso, chairman of the
Government Relations Committee of the Board
of Trustees, UF's highest governing body.
Rather, they are asking the Legislature to
hand over control of out-of-state, graduate and
professional tuition, said Jane Adams, UF vice
president for university relations.
Board Chairman Manny Fernandez told the
trustees he was fairly confident about getting
control of tuition in this session, with the excep-
tion of in-state rates'.
"There is pretty much an agreement out


there thaf this is going to take place," Fernandez
said.
This session is pivotal for UF as the uni-
versity tries to begin the process of gaining
autonomy.

$50 tax irks

UF teachers and students
joined forces outside Emerson
Alumni Hall on IMo:nda\- n- pro-
test of a $50 fee charged to inter-
national students that some critics
feel is racist.
"They are actively enforcing a
fee on international students be-
cause [the government] feels they
are not responsible, which, in my
definition, is racism," said protest
participator Lydia Washington,
'Student Government co-director
of multicultural affairs.
Members of Graduate
Ai.*,tjnt- United, who felt the
UlI Board of Trustees w\rongfull,
denied them and se eral St ot-


ficials the right to speak during
a public comment period in
Monday's Board of Trustees meet-
ing, organized the protest over the
weekend.
"If UF wants to be a Top 10
institution, it must attract an in-
ternational community," Student
Body presidential candidate
Dennis Ngin said at the demon-
stration.
"International- students. who
come to
UF UF for an
Administration education
are poten-
tial world leaders, and it's critical
we support these students," he
added.
The $50 fee is appropri-
ated to help fund the Student
and Exchange Visitor Information
System or SEVIS, a program
started as part of the Homeland
Security Act.

Hopeful works to 'conserve'


Rob Brinkman is one of four candidates up for election to the City Com-
mission At-Large seat next Tuesday.


Local carpenter makes

transition to candidate

Editor's note: This is the second in a series
of four articles taking a closer look at can-
didates for the Gainesville City Commission
At-Large seat.
By BRIAN HAGEN
Alligator Writer
bhagen@alligator.org

Conservation and the environment aren't just for
liberals anymore, At-large City Commission candi-
date Rob Brinkman said.
"'Conserve' shares its root word with 'conserva-
tive,'" said Brinkman, who calls himself progressive.
"I would much rather work with resources I have on-
hand than live on the future."
Brinkman has always bought his cars with cash
and avoids using his credit cards on any purchases
smaller than a house, he said.
His brown corduroy sports jacket leads to hands
covered in small scars from his job as a carpenter. His
job, Brinkman said, is what made him think in terms
of renewable energy resources.
"I will not support a coal-fired power plant," he
said of Gainesville Regional Utilities' proposed coal
and petroleum coke-powered electrical plant.
Friends failed to convince Brinkman to de-empha-
size his environmental positions.
"I've always had a hard time not telling people
what I think," he said.
Students not voicing their own opinions when it
comes to electing City Commissioners means they
lose the opportunity to protect their money and ser-
vices, Brinkman added.
"To me, local government is going to make deci-
sions that affect your day-to-day life more than na-
tional government," he said.
Rental rates and cellular phone bills increase if the
City Commission raises property or communication


taxes, Brinkman noted.
Though interested with the proposal of a non-
voting, advocacy-oriented student commissioner
position, Brinkman didn't see it improving student
representation any more than other boards' non-vot-
ing student adjuncts.
"In my opinion, that's the treating of one citizen
different than another," Brinkman said. "They should
be given voting rights like any other member of the
committee."
Students don't have a city district representing
them because the community sees them as transients,
he said.
"On average, a typical American lives in a place
five years," he. said. "Students' length of residence
isn't any different."
Brinkman's approach to the world evolved from
working with his hands, he said. He wanted to un-
derstand how everything worked,
Elections from buildings to governments.
2M Volunteering with Gainesville's
Breakfast Brigade, a group that pro-
vides meals to about 100 day laborers every Friday,
was a hands-on experience that taught Brinkman
how Gainesville's working poor live.
"A high percentage of them are, in fact, homeless,"
he said. "They are working; they just can afford shel-
ter."
In his free time, Brinkman enjoys outings at
natural springs and the beach. Although he no longer
owns his own scuba equipment, he "very rarely goes
to the beach without fins and a snorkel."
When pressed to pick a single favorite movie, he
chose "2001: A Space Odyssey."
Fame makes Brinkman uncomfortable.
"It's hard to do anything without being a major
news story. People can say anything they want to,"
Brinkman said of attaining fame turning into noto-
riety.
Though he said he did not want to become fa-
mous, faced with the prospect, he brought the discus-
sion back to one of his main convictions.
"I would like to develop a very cheap, clean re-
newable source of energy," Brinkman said.


MISSING STUDENT

Friends, family frustrated by search for missing student


By ELIZABETH PRANN
Alligator Writer
eprann@alligator.org

In efforts to aid the still-fruitless
investigation into the disappearance
of UF exchange student Brendan
Kieran Dobbins, a group of his
friends are organizing a fundraiser
this week on Turlington Plaza.
Four of the. friends who ac-
companied Dobbins on a Spring
Break trip to Costa Rica organized
the team of building-construction
majors in an effort to raise money
for Dobbins' family and their con-
tinuing search efforts in the Central
American country, said classmate
and fellow Australian exchange
student Imogen Wells.
The group will be collecting do-
nations on Turlington Plaza today,
Wednesday and Thursday from 9:
30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. A fund has been
established and a goal set of raising
$10,000.
A week after the group of friends
returned to UF, they have no more
answers than when their search first
began after Dobbins didn't make it
to an agreed-upon meeting place
in the seaside town of Tamarindo,
Costa Rica on March 4.
After doing what they could
to aid search efforts, the foursome
returned to Gainesville without fan-
fare March 15, Wells said, to avoid
questions and publicity. I. ,


"It's very strange to be back,"
Wells wrote in an e-mail. "When
we first arrived in America, it was
amazing how much the U.S. felt like
home."
However, Wells said the group
members have changed their minds
about finishing the semester at UF
and are returning
to Australia this
week to be with
their families and
friends.
On behalf of
the group mem-
bers, Wells said
Dobbins they enjoyed
their time at UF
and the friendships they have devel-
oped over the past several months
and are grateful for the overwhelm-
ing amount of support and care
they have received from fellow UF
students.
As to continuing their search ef-
forts in Costa Rica, Wells said they
have exhausted their resources.
"We have no plan to head back
to Costa Rica," Wells said. "We have
done as much as we possibly were
able to do while we were there, now
that it has become a criminal inves-
tigation."
Last week, Costa Rican police of-
ficially extended their investigation
beyond the limits of Tamarindo to a
nationwide search and ruled out the
possibility of drowning,
4: : -r 1


"When they occur, in the great
majority of cases the bodies returned
to shore within 72 hours," Dobbins'
father Brian said.
He traveled to Costa Rica from
Australia on March 10 to help in the
search for his son.
Additionally, he said he will
meet with the consulate general of
Canada, the agency responsible for
Australian citizens on Costa Rican
territory, and police this week while
awaiting the arrival of his wife.
Despite the distance among all
involved parties, there has been
much communication among the
groups but not much news to relay.
"On the question of an update,"
Wells said, "there is unfortunately
not much to report."
She said frustration is building
because of the lack of action carried
out by Costa Rica Judicial Police.


Wells said she hopes the meet-
ings this week will give Dobbins'
family, as well as the group, a better
idea of what is going on-behind the
scenes and. what has been done.
But Brian, Dobbins said he is
suspicious of "holes in the inves-
tigation," finding it difficult to
"measure" the various stories he is
hearingin regard to the credibility of
the search efforts.
Cultural and language barriers
are also interfering with his com-
munication attempts.
Stuart Coleman, who has as-
sisted in the search efforts by set-
ting up a bank account for Brian
Dobbins at the Commonwealth
Bank of Australia, said he is skepti-
cal of immediate search efforts with
the upcoming close of government
agencies for a week due to Easter.
He said he has been attempt-


ing to organize what he can from
SMelbourne, Australia, by collecting
donations for a possible reward.
Yet Coleman also expressed dis-
satisfaction with the investigation
similar to Wells and Dobbins' father.
"I think his friends, Imogen, Pete
etc. did an amazing job," Coleman
said. "But aside from that, there
has been [minimal] support from
the Costa Rica locals, police, the
Australian government and also the
U.S. Embassy".
Despite Dobbins traveling on an
exchange program, he did not have
a U.S. visa, and American embassy
officials were therefore reluctant at
first to get involved, Coleman said.
Additionally, Coleman said the
Australian Government did not
respond the way he would have ex-
pected, taking seven days to send in
a consulate official from Mexico.

Voice Party endorses Impact; Progress stays neutral


By NEIL HUGHES
Alligator Writer
nhughes@alligator.org

The .losing parties in last week's first
round of Student Government elections have
announced their support or lack thereof
- in today's and Wednesday's runoff.
The Voice Party has officially endorsed
the Impact Party's executive ticket, while
former Progress Student Body presiden-
tial candidate MacKenzie Moritz said his
party will not take sides.
"The students are more than qualified


to look at the two parties' platforms and
see which one aligns the most with the
Progress Party," Moritz said.
Moritz said when he agreed to sit down
with both Gator Party presidential candi-
date Joe Goldberg and Dennis Ngin of the
Impact Party, both made an attempt to get
the student senator to endorse their ticket.
"Neither made a compelling argument
for an endorserient," he said.
Progress's Web site updated Monday
with a letter to supporters explaining the
party's neutrality in the elections.
Over 2,000 students voted for Progress


last week during the first round of elec-


tions.








Lauer


"Being -told who to
vote for is part of the
dysfunction of our cur-
rent system, and by
endorsing either party,
we would only perpetu-
ate that problem," the
Progress Web site stated.
Voice's former


Student Body treasurer candidate Justin
Lauer said his decision to support Impact
came after a vote was taken by the Senate


candidates and the party's executive
board.
"The majority of our party over-
whelmingly voted for the Impact Party,"
said Lauer, who will not be in the run-
off election between Impact's Michelle
Lightbourne and Gator's Lindsay Cosimi.
Voice Party members will campaign for
Impact by wearing Voice shirts with Impact
stickers, he said, because the party has an
elected Senator in the school of Forestry.
"The Voice Party wants to send a mes-
sage that we're still a party that's alive,"
Lauer said.


Latin sorority offers inherited beauty home remedies


By LINDSAY PETER
Alligator Contributing Writer

About 25 people attended Pretty
Woman: Tips from the Motherland
at the Institute of Hispanic-Latino
Cultures to learn about home rem-
edies for skin and hair products
Monday night.
Lambda Theta
On Alpha, a Latin soror-
Ca '.'Si ity, hosted the event as
a part of the nine-day
celebration of its ninth year on UF's
campus.
Carolina Celis, recruitment chair-
woman for Lambda Theta Alpha,
taught the audience how to blend
combinations of banana, honey,
margarine, lemon juice and yogurt
to create moisturizers and exfoli-
.ants using recipes from her grand-
mother.
"She actually had.a really long
list," said Celis, who got the family
remedies during Christmas break.
"I picked a variety, stuff that you
could find around the house."


Celis asked for volunteers to
experience each of the seven rem-
edies.
Martine Voigt, a first-year con-
struction-management major, volun-
teered-to try the yogurt and honey
mask used to smooth skin.
"I was kind of nervous, but since W
it was all natural stuff, I really wasn't
worried," Voigt said.' _
Throughout the presentation,
Celis asked questions reviewing
the recipes and gave samples of an
avocado coconut hair mask for cor-
rect answers. ,....
Women in attendance also .. "
received gift bags that included
samples of Avon .products, a con-
tainer of grapes and a guide to the .
remedies taught.
"I'm definitely going to keep the

ELECTIONS 2005

Forums organized'to inspire student involvement


By IVETTE MENDEZ
Alligator Writer
imendez@alligator.org

Prompted by the election season,
UF students will take action with the
Local Empowerment Action Plan.
Matt Jones, director of the civic
engagement branch of the Office of
Community Service at UF, founded
LEAP in hopes of involving UF stu-
dents in local government.
"It was created the first time
for this election," Jones said.


"Hopefully, in the future we'll have
more similar events."
LEAP, a nonpartisan organi-
zation, has organized a series of
candidate forums this week to
educate students on l6cal elections,
specifically the upcoming City
Commission elections.
November's election showed
how involved students really want
to be, he said.
Not all candidates will be ad-
dressing the student groups though.
Jones contacted various campus


student organizations to ask which
local official they wanted to speak
at their meetings
iA this week, then
arranged for
the speaker to
attend the meet-
'- ings to address
the members, he
said.
Hanrahan "It's a totally
neutral effort to
reach out to every student," Jones
said.


Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan will be
speaking at today's Student Senate
meeting at 8 p.m. in Reitz Union
Room 282.
"We asked her to come out and
talk about the importance of student
participation in local elections,"
Jones said.
On Wednesday, District 2 can-
didate and Student Sen. Mike Belle
will be addressing students at a 9
p.m. Students for Belle meeting in
Reitz Union Room 285.
At the Gator Green


Environmental Action Group
meeting on Thursday, At-Large
candidate Rob Brinkman will
speak at 7 p.m. in Rinker Hall
Room 238.
Friday concludes the series with
a forum including seven out of the
nine candidates for all three seats
on the Reitz Union Colonnade at
noon. District 3 incumbent Tony
Domenech will be out of town,
and At-Large candidate Diyonne
McGraw has yet to contact Jones
about the event.


Commissioner: Students are key to achieving gay rights


* CRAIG LOWE IS GAINESVILLE'S
FIRST OPENLY GAY COMMISSIONER.

By LINDSAY TAULBEE
Alligator Writer
Itaulbee@alligator.org

Speaking at a Pride Student Union meet-
ing Monday night, City Commissioner Craig
Lowe told almost 40 students to speak out to
implement change in local government, spe-
cifically to fight for gay rights.
Lowe, Gainesville's first openly gay com-
missioner, said gay issues have evolved and
improved since he moved to Gainesville, but
they are not yet where they should be.


"There's not a time for total complacency,"
he said, referencing a recent instance in which
UNF's Student Body president would not sign
a bill allotting money to the school's Pride
organization.
However, more organizations, such as the
Alachua County Library District, are provid-
ing domestic-partner benefits, and anti-dis-
crimination statements are becoming more
common, he said.
He said Gainesville still needs a domes-
tic-partner registry, in which same-sex and
opposite-sex partners in civil unions could be
recognized as family.
This would be especially pertinent in situ-
ations in which visitation rights are involved,
such as in hospitals, he said.


Student-aged residents are key, he said, in
achieving these goals.
"It's an important time for students to get
involved and vote- and to make their voices
heard," he said.
When Lowe first ran for the
On City Commission, he won by
Campus just a few votes, some from the
student-heavy.Reitz Union poll-
ing location.
Speaking of the upcoming city election,
Lowe did not endorse any candidates specifi-
cally.
Rather, he outlined for the group the public
stances and actions candidates-recently had
taken pertaining to lesbian, gay, bisexual and
transgender affairs.


"I would be a skeptic if I were you," he
said, noting that as a commissioner, his per-
spective is different from most others'.
In an interview after the meeting, Lowe
said the LGBT community has been subject
to discrimination and exclusion, making it
important to encourage participation in gov-
ernment.
"The LGBT community is one that's of-
ten been overlooked by the community as a
whole," he said.
Lowe discussed the age disparity in
Gainesville, commenting that often younger
residents are more receptive to change.
The Local Empowerment Action Plan or
LEAP helped sponsor Monday's event.
Other forums will held throughout the week.

Editorial


Lost in shuffle.

Moral arguments in case

have trumped legal issue
W e can sum up the Terri Schiavo debacle, in eight
words: We feel bad, but it's not our business.
Both sides use moral not legal argu-
ments to justify their beliefs and then accuse the.other side
of not taking the law seriously.
Supporters of Schiavo's husband, Michael, who has
tried for years to take his mentally disabled wife off the
feeding tube that provides her only means of survival,
often say it's the only way to give Terri dignity and to end
her suffering.
Supporters of Bob and Mary Schindler, Schiav6's
parents, argue that, since they offered to take all respon-
sibility for their daughter's care away from her husband,
they should have the right to maintain Terri's life. Their
desire not to starve and dehydrate a helpless woman for
a couple of weeks until she dies is an equally persuasive
argument.
The truth is, we don't know the answer. We don't know
if Terri can perceive what's going on, or if she would want
to die if she could express herself to us.
Is she suffering? We don't know.
What we do have are family memories as worn as the -
Paula Abdul and Michael Bolton cassettes no doubt sitting
among Terri's last conscious worldly possessions.
We wonder how hard it is for both sides to envision the
young Terri, a 27-year-old who could think for herself.
The question for us, however, should be whose memo-
ries should prevail in determining Terri's wishes.
Legally, that resides with her husband.
Of course, there should be nothing wrong with a fed-
eral court taking a look at the case, because it's a sucker's
bet to leave the Schindlers without as much legal opinion
and recourse as they're willing to petition.
But when should the ends ever justify the means?
That's why we have government in concept, and our
three-branch American system in specific: to prevent those
of means from advancing a "just so" rule of law.
Congress has done that: Our federal lawmakers have
used moral reasons to extend this debate artificially.
And while Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and
President Bush grandstand about the actions they took to
preserve human life, they overlook that the law is not an
animal to chop and Shake-and-Bake.
We feel bad, but it's not our business.
In a moral sense, the case is equally clear: Michael
Schiavo has no sustainable reason in our view to fight
Terri's parents for custody except to be recognized as her
guardian. Is he only sustaining this for his own principles?
We don't know.
Terri's worst torture in our eyes is the persistent re-
moval and reinsertion of her tether to life, which for all
the world resembles John Kerry waffling at a presidential
debate.
We feel bad, but it's not our business.
When we retract the facade of media attention from the
case, what we have left are bitter nuggets of hope from a
family that's already grieved for 15 years.
We wish our best to the families involved, and it is our
fervent hope Terri's public ordeal will end soon. But for
her sake, we can no longer pander to this media circus.

Alligator is full of u
Thanks to the diligence of our readers, it has come to our
attention that a disturbing trend has arisen.
I have determined, without question, that there is a
noticeable and inappropriate bias in the Alligator.
That's right bias. In the Opinions section.
Somehow, despite our best efforts, a number of cases of
this bias, which I will refer to as "opinions," managed to
finagle their way into our Opinions pages.
To address this, the editors and I have dedicated ourselves
to erasing all opinions from said Opinions section.
To begin with, this whole "editorial board" thing has to
stop. We can't have a panel of politically and socially active
students producing such flagrantly biased editorials.
From now on, a committee consisting of every single
living organism in the universe will write all editorials as-
suming they elect to attend the daily meetings.
But because such an ultimate consensus still could be con-
sidered opinion, we will allow the largest dissenting group
to write a rebuttal. Further, because of the inherent bias in
a two-party system, we will allow the smaller dissenting
group that shows the most indignation to write an editorial
dismissing both of the larger parties as being "The Man."
At this point, the Opinions pages are starting to look
pretty crowded. Fortunately, we will have to get rid of the
daily column outright, because there certainly is no lack of
opinion in giving someone the right to speak out on his or
her views. It especially is heinous when we offer only letters
to the editor and guest columns as means of rebuttal.
Because we are busy cleaning house anyway, we are
aiuditing our stable of editorial cartoonists, which is known
around the Alligator office as "Andy Marlette."
Again, reader complaints led us to a startling revelation:
Marlette has opinions too! For shame.
For instance, we agree it was tasteless for Marlette to be-
lieve that the men's basketball team led by the people's
hero, Matt Walsh possibly could have choked when
they barely'scraped together a victory against perennial-

Editorial Notebook the cartoon was a tearful but truth-
msanchez@alligator.org ful goodbye to a hell of an end to the
season was just BS.
This leaves us with the festering,
debased pit of opinions known as "letters to the editor."
To my shock, I found we had been printing only the-let-
ters that had been sent to the Alligator. Meanwhile, tens of
people were offended and emotionally scarred that we ran
only the side of the issue whose adherents were concerned
enough to let us know about it.
I consideredmnaking it an institutional rule that we must
comb the city for people on all sides of every issue so we can
ensure that all opinions are represented. Once I realized that.
we might actually have to leave the office to do so, unfortu-
nately, I fainted iM panic at the prospect.
So, we simply will do away with letters altogether and re-
place them with more editorials from unrepresented groups.
I am afraid, unfortunately, that none of that is going to
work. Even though we've revamped the entire paper to in-
clude every viewpoint possible on each issue, the thing still
will be crawling with opinions.
There's really only one thing left to do. We'll remove ev-
ery adjective and every subjective statement, condense each
editorial to the most pertinent information and require all
contributors to thoroughly research the subjects and inter-
view knowledgeable sources.
It's genius. There'll be so little opinion, we won't even
have to call it the Opinions section anymore.
I can see it now: We'll call it "News."

Letters to the Editor
Party does not care about the students
Editor Has everyone forgotten exactly
who Joe Goldberg is? Has the entire student
body forgotten how this guy broke the rules of
the Student Senate, over which he presided, in
order to secure a Theta Chi legacy for an un-
qualified candidate? Has it forgotten that he
was a party leader for the Innovate Party?
Gator is just the same old party and the
same old people repackaged. They must
think students are idiots if they believe they
can wrap themselves in the message they
thought "sold" the student body last year.
Goldberg saying he wants to bring SG to stu-
dents is the most ridiculous-thing I have ever
heard. As a founder of the Student Alliance, I
can say Goldberg is one of the individuals that
worked to keep everyone out of SG. Despite


what he is saying now, that is his only real
intention. Goldberg and those he represents
are hoping to sell the student body with the
message the Access Party had last year. They
are hoping students will forget what Gator
really represents: everything that the student
body fought against last year. They represent
student positions being given away months
before any application is turned in or any in-
terview is conducted.
Students who vote for Gator are just undo-
ing all of the progress that was made by last
year's triumph. If people want change, they
have to keep fighting to keep SG clean. They
have to punish the individuals that make it
dirty. If students don't care about SG, then
they should care about corruption. They
should care about the fact that students-and


student organizations are pressured into sup-
porting people they don't believe in. I would
like to illuminate for the student body exactly
what will happen if Gator wins. If they win,
everyone who hasn't already been guaran-
teed a position will be expelled from SG.
Organizations that failed to support Gator or
dared to remain neutral will be punished. And
the average student can look forward to being
ignored when they go to the Reitz Union try-
ing-to get involved. Our elections will go back
to being based on absolute nonsense and com-
pletely empty promises.
My point is simple: SG's $11 million budget
can do a lot for students, but only if leaders
who actually care are elected..

Letters to the Editor
'Foolish' letters obscure issues
Editor: I am shocked at some of
the things in your paper these days.
I read David Odom's letter about the
"unspeakable things" the Greeks do
to their members unless they vote
and wanted to laugh out loud. As a
Gator Party supporter and an inde-
pendent, I can tell you this party has
been misrepresented from day one.
Joe Goldberg has worked tire-
lessly for four years here at UF to
make life better for students. As a
freshman, Joe was a new senator
when I, a senior at the time, started
my term as Senate president.
Yes, they even let us indepen-
dents become president.
Goldberg was so eager to get in-
volved and work on committees that
we had to tell him to slow down. But
you cannot slow someone like him
down. He cares too much about
making a positive contribution to
UE That is why I proudly support
Goldberg and the Gator Party.
I can assure you there has been
political maneuvering by both the
Impact and Gator Parties. However,
Odom, do not be so naive as to think
that the Greeks and the Gator Party
are the "evil empire" and you are
leading the "rebel alliance" against
them. This is not Star Wars and, if
it were, Goldberg would be more
like an Ewok than. Darth Vader.
Goldberg has worked hard, much
like his counterpart Dennis Ngin.
Both of them deserve a fair look
and do not need foolish letters like
yours to distract students from the
important issues. I beg students to
listen to one thing from Odom's let-
ter though: Go out and vote.
Goldberg and the Gator Party
have experience on their side and
their actions have spoken louder.
than anyone's words. He has ac-
complished so much for the student
body that nobody can question his
ability to lead or his intentions.
Chris Carmody
Adviser to Joe Goldberg



Don't mock an emotional scene
Editor I feel that Monday's
editorial cartoon was inappropriate
and not very classy.
As- a journalism student, I un-
derstand your right to say whatever
you feel like saying and, as a basket-
ball fan, I understand the frustration
with the team's postseason woes.
However, to take an emotional
moment Matt Walsh had and ex-
ploit it is classless. Walsh put his
heart and soul into the game yester-
day, just like he always does. After
he fouled out, he sat on-the bench,
reduced to tears and facing the end
of a season and the end of playing
with his friend David Lee. It's pretty
low to mock someone's emotional
outpouring.
While the Gators did not have
their best game, losing to an under-
rated team.like Villanova hardly is
choking. This was not a disappoint-
ing season for the Gators. They beat
Kentucky for the first time in four
years (twice), won their first ever
SEC Tournament championship and
had 24 wins.
Seems like a good year to me. Too
bad so many people have such short
memories.

Hopefuls discuss area politics


Iraq, rights also on agenda


By BRIAN HAGEN
Alligator Writer
bhagen@alligator.org


Candidates fo4 the three City
Commission seats up for election
March 29 revealed their personali-
ties beyond the issues at Monday's
offbeat forum at the Civic Media
Center.
"The audience is almost out-
numbered by
the candidates,"
S \ moderator Joe
S Courter joked.
The seven au-
dience members
who braved the
rain listened as
Local candidates
Brinkman answered ques-
tions ranging -from the Iraq war to
the sources of adrenaline.
The forum was split into two
sessions with At-Large incumbent
Rick Bryant and candidates Rob
Brinkman, Diyonne McGraw and
Gabriel Kaimowitz leading off.
The wars in Afghanistan and
Iraq brought out
strong negative
reactions.
"The war
thing was a big
set-up," McGraw
said. "The people
who flew those
McGraw planes Bin
Laden they're
Bush's friends."
"I lived through every son-of-a-
bitch that the Republicans put up,"
Kaimowitz said. "Bush announced a
pre-emptive right to declare war."
"I don't think they want the war
to end," Brinkman said. "All the
better to control the people through
fear."


Grassroots organizing is at the
heart of the Civic Media Center, and
the candidates were asked which
movements they identified with.
Brinkman recounted marching
against the Vietnam War and with
Cesar Chavez as well as involving
himself locally against a cement
plant. The civil rights movement still
goes on, he said.
Bryant said he was inspired by
'the movement's
,..; rise from bus boy-
cotts and sit-ins at
lunch counters.
Ir. As a lawyer
in Michigan,
Kaimowitz pled a
precedent-setting
Kaimowitz case, establishing
in federal court
that Black English was a dialect, and
white teachers were discriminating
against students who spoke it.
The lack of affordable healthcare
impassioned the candidates.
As a mother of four, McGraw
said she spends $400 a month on in-
surance. People need to change this,


she said,
"We have to
make our govern-
ment do this and
fight for universal
healthcare," she
said.


: It enflamed
Bryant Bryant to note
that a country as
wealthy as the United States could
not provide affordable healthcare to
its citizens. Without medical cover-
age he has as a UF employee, the cost
of removing a recent kidney stone
would have been $30,000, he said.
"A kidney stone can bankrupt
you," Bryant said. "We have got to
get coverage for our people."


In the evening's second half,
District 3 candidates Jack Donovan
and UF student Mike Belle and
District 2 candidate Grant Thrall
took the stage, with incumbents
Tony Domenech and Ed Braddy,
respectively, absent, to field the issue
of what elevates their adrenaline.
Thrall had two answers: his
Harley-Davidson motorcycle and
coffee. His kitchen holds a profes-
sional roaster and grinder, he said.
Donovan credited his own energy
to daily meditation, but said, "I also

-- When The
r Sky radio came
up, Donovan
grouped it with
Belle the work of Jake
Fuller the car-
toonist for the Gainesville Sun.
"His aim seems to be insulting
whoever he can in the community,"
Donovan said. "I think that talk
radio is the same. I really don't like
- hate talk radio."
Believing in the open communi-
cation of ideas, Belle said he would
have no problem talking to anyone.


Candidates want


Super Wal-Mart

Editor's note: This is the first in a series of articles ad-
dressing issues in this month's City Commission races.
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Alligator Writer
smagruder@alligator.org

The, possibility of erecting additional Wal-Mart
Supercenters in Gainesville seems to draw near-unanimous
approval among the four candidates battling for the At-Large
City Commission seat, but the proposed locations for the busi-
nesses seems to be a bit more divisive.
The two newest sites under consideration for a proposed
Supercenter are Northside Park in North Gainesville and on
Waldo Road in East Gainesville.
A proposal to put the Supercenter hear a section of
Hogtown Creek along Northwest 13th Street was denied by
the commission in June 2004.
Some of the issues being debated are possible environmen-
tal concerns, traffic and impact on local businesses.
Incumbent Rick Bryant and candidates Diyonne McGraw
and Gabriel Kaimowitz said bringing Wal-Mart to East
Gainesville would be a step in the right
Elections direction to encourage development and
.;, '.r infrastructure.
"I don't see how anybody could object to
it," Kaimowitz said.
He added that before any significant growth could take
place in East Gainesville, banks would have to come to the
area and finance neighborhoods that he said are overlooked.
McGraw said that with the westward movement of busi-
nesses, the east side of town is being left behind.
"If you bring a big company like Wal-Mart, other business-
es will be willing to come," McGraw said, adding that open-
ing up more east-west roads would address traffic concerns.
Bryant said creating jobs was his No. 1 reason for support-
ing a Supercenter in East Gainesville, which he said he hopes
will start a "renaissance" of business opportunity.
"I'm looking for that Wal-Mart Supercenter to be an anchor
for an airport, banks, dry cleaners and the rest," Bryant said.
'Brinkman conceded the retail chain has the ability to hurt
some businesses while helping others.
"Wal-Marts are mixed bags," he said.
He added if new Wal-Mart stores are to be built, they
should remain where they already are and take advantage of
available commercial space.
East Gainesville, Brinkman said, needs to market itself to
"the right kind of development" mixed-use where mul-
tiple types of businesses would exist in the same building.
SAccording to Wal-Mart's Web site, 114 Supercenters
already exist in-Florida, with each store occupying about
186,000 square feet.
Wal-Mart's discount stores, like the ones on Archer Road
and Northwest 13th Street, occupy about 98,000 square feet.


Candidates donate

With the upcoming City
Commission election March
29, local officials as well as
fellow candidates are throw-
ing their support behind old
friends, largely through cam-
paign donations.
County Commissioner
Paula Delaney has contrib-
uted $50 to Rick Bryant, the
incumbent in the citywide
At-Large race, according to
the Supervisor of Elections
-Web site. Her husband also
donated the same amount.
"The only person I've ac-
tually given any money to is
Rick Bryant," Delaney said,
adding that she has known
Bryant for many years and
respects all the work he has
done for local schools.
I However, she said she is
undecided about the candi-.


dates in the other two seats
up for election.
District 2 candidate Grant
Thrall also demonstrated his
support by putting it where
it counts his wife donated
$50 to At-Large candidate
Rob Brinkman and Jack
Donovan, one of three hope-
fuls for the District 3 seat.
"Either I or my wife have
donated money to their cam-
paigns," Thrall said.
Donovan was -Thrall's
minister, and both have been
longtime friends of Thrall.
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan
and At-Large Commissioner
Warren Nielsen cannot sup-
port candidates due to their
membership on the city
Canvassing Board, which is
responsible for tallying votes,
Nielsen said.
City commissioners Craig
Lowe and.Chuck Chestnut
did not return phone calls
before prL-_ time.

New logo, strategy

to increase stature

By EMILY YEHLE
Alligator Writer
eyehle@alligator.org

After four months of interviews and research
totaling $85,000, UF can now be defined as "an
unparalleled university experience that lasts a
lifetime."
Along with this new "brand essence," hired
consultants have presented UF with a new logo
and marketing strategy in hopes of elevating the
university's stature nationwide.
Now, administrators may need to dole out
more cash to hire an agency to implement that
strategy and spread this new message through
advertisements, said Jane Adams, vice president
for university relations.
"The next steps are to take a look at the recom-
mendations and determine what we're going to
do with it," she said.
UP branding consultants Howard Pickett and
Pete Hanley presented the plan to the Board of
Trustees' Public Relations Committee on Monday.
Although UF's highest governing body does
not have to approve the project, Pickett and
Hanley will make the, same presentation to the
entire board today.
The consultants created advertising drafts
based on actual UF research, including a piece
about micro-Kelvin researchers who recreate the
coldest conditions known.
"It's just to show a creative idea," Pickett said.
At the committee meeting Monday, most of
the trustees praised the presentation. However,
trustee Joelen Merkel said the branding essence
should focus more on improvements the uni-
versity has made since some students' parents
attended U.
"I'm not buying into this slogan," she said,
adding, "We're different now. We're not the old
Oldsmobile; we're the new Oldsmobile."


Committee chairwoman Cynthia O'Connell
said she liked the idea but stressed that the
recommended strategy would be difficult to
implement.
"These next steps are very critical," she said.
"It's very ambitious, and it's not going to be easy."
The consultants outlined six steps UF should
take within.the next five months, including creat-
ing a central marketing organization that would
be responsible for spreading the new branding
message across campus.
Such a department is normal in corporations,
Pickett said, and would help the university
ensure that the target audience, which includes
UF employees and other universities, receives a
single, succinct message.
"Our branding efforts have been very, very
inconsistent," he said.
One example is the UF logo, Pickett said.
Trustees were shown-18 different logos used
across UP departments; none of them resembled
the standard university logo.
Since creating a new image could cost millions
of dollars, Pickett and Hanley recommended a
revamped logo by removing UF's seal and add-
ing the phrase "a lifetime experience" under the
university name.
"Frankly, we don't think the basic logo is that
bad," hesaid.

'Basketball Diaries' author bounces into Reitz tonight


By ARLYN HERNANDEZ
Avenue Writer

He was addicted to heroin at the age of 13 all the time,
winning championships for his upper-Manhattan private
school and writing what would be known as his most popu-
lar book.
Jim Carroll, author of "The Basketball Diaries," a book-
turned-film starring a young Leonardo DiCaprio, will speak
at the Reitz Union Auditorium tonight at 8:30.
"The Basketball Diaries" is best described as an autobio-
graphical story of Carroll growing up in New York, being


addicted to drugs and playing basketball and began as a
series of diary entries from his youth.
Aside from his many books, Carroll
fronted the once-popular Jim Carroll Band.
One of its albums, "Catholic Boy," now is
considered by many as one of the last great
punk albums.
Carroll and his band were featured
as the cover story for magazines such
Carol as Newsweek,. New York, Creem and
SPenthouse. In 1973 at the age of 22, he was
nominated for'a Pulitzer Prize for his introspective rants in
"The Basketball Diaries."


The 55-year-old musician/poet is expected to speak of
his troubles with drug addiction, as well as read some of his
much-acclaimed poetry.
The event is free and open to the public, and there will be
a book signing at the end of his speech.
Students who are interested in more than just hearing
him speak on stage can send a few sentences about why they
would want to have dinner with him to rub@union.ufl.edu.
Ten will be selected to dine with the author.-
The movie version of the book will be playing at the Reitz
Union Cinema this week and is free for everyone. Show
times are Wednesday and Thursday at 8 and 10:30 p.m.


Vista to overtake WebCT as sole online system in Fall


* SOME PROFESSORS HAVE
ENCOUNTERED PROBLEMS.

By MIKE JAYNE
Alligator Contributing Writer

It's time for an upgrade.
Starting Fall, Vista will replace
WebCT Campus Edition as the sole
online class-support system. The
switch has garnered mixed reaction.
Microeconomics professor Mark
Rush said he has encountered
several problems using Vista. One
of the largest classes at UF, Rush's
couIrs.e hast. ideolaped lectures and
m t.-i ri!i i_- ortU.n p..Y-_td nilinei '


"Every time I do this, my blood
pressure rises," Rush said, sitting
down to log in to the system. "Look
here." He pointed on the monitor to
four separate links students had to
open in order to view each,of four
exam grades. "Students look for
their grades, and they're screwed."
Douglas Johnson, manager of
Learning Support Systems, said
the decision to switch to Vista was
recommended in August 2003 and
approved a month later by then-
Provost David Colburn. UF began
using Vista during Spring 2004.
Johnson set the fall deadline in a
:licen-se? agreement rith WebCT .-.


WebCT is the company that de-
veloped both.versions, yet WebCT
often is used to describe all com-
puter-based class support at UE
Both versions are administered by
Learning Support Systems.
Johnson said LSS moved quickly
to implement Vista's trial, run. He
jokingly referred to his staff as the
"Vista Suicide Squad," for its efforts
to pilot the system in five months as
opposed to the company-estimated
18-month time frame.
He said about 900 classes are ac-
tively using Vista this term, in con-
trast to 250 using Campus Edition.
'Vista has alo been a bit of a has.le


for sophomore Jeaneen Garcia, who
said the Campus Edition she used
last semester worked fine. Now
using Vista for her introduction to
telecommunication class, she cited
problems logging in.
Student Still, system
Life administrators are
optimistic. JoLaine
Jones-Pokorney, an LSS consultant,
described Vista as a "top-tier"
product with more capability than
Campus Edition, which is four years
its senior. While uncertain which
version receives more complaints,
Vista is more complicated and now
.used by most ittrudlors,.-she said.
-. ._- .


Natalie Lashway, araccount spe-
cialist with LSS, said out of an aver-
age of 10 "connect calls" a day, most
are user-related problems such as
expired. usernames, botched logins
or even pop-up blockers.
Vista does have its supporters,
though.
Amy Sanders, teaching assistant
for a law of mass communications
course, said she is looking forward
to using Vista.
"I typed in 270-some grades,
hit one button and the box disap-
peared," she said, referring to com-
plications with Campus Edition.
And so the debate continues, *-

All-nighters, caffeine can lead to test disasters


* TOO MUCH STRESS CAN EASILY
LEAD TO MEMORY BLOCKS.

By KIM GOUZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students used to all-nighters may not
realize that sipping coffee and reading
Einstein's Notes until 2 a.m. can lead to a
test-taking disaster.
W. William Chen, UF professor of
health education and behavior, said over-
preparation and last-minute studying may
lower performance on exams.


Excess stress triggers the release of the
hormone norepinephrine, a stimulant.
Though the right amount can sharpen
ability, too much norepinephrine causes
memory blocks.
"It's like those times when you forget
something and remember it a couple of
hours later," Chen said. "That experience
is comparable to the short-term memory
loss experienced by students with test
anxiety."
Chen advises students to try to relax
when they experience a memory block on
an exam.
"Don't force it," he said. "Take a deep


breath, and go onto questions that you
know better. You can always come back
later."
Erin Masi, a third-year
education major, said she
developed strategies to
*deal with test anxiety,
which include studying
days before an exam,
taking breaks when
study sessions become
Chen too stressful and wak-
ing up early on test days
to get ready at a comfortable pace. Masi
still experiences test anxiety on occasion,


however.
"Math tests are the worst for me," she
said. "On a recent exam, I goofed on a
question that was taken directly from the
homework."
Michael Murphy, a staff psychologist
for the University Counseling Center,
suggests students begin exam preparation
early in the semester and reinforce mate-
rial by making note cards.
"The hard part is getting people to
shed their well-worn habits," Murphy
said. "But, once they do, and they see an
improvement, their anxiety will start to
decrease."


Reusing a water bottle could mean bottled bacteria


By CHERYL CLARKE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Reused water bottles could be providing'more than just
refreshment these days.
"If you look really hard in bottled water, you can probably
find some of those bacteria, but will the amount in there make
people sick?" asked Amy Simonne, UF adjunct assistant pro-
fessor of Food Science and Human Nutrition.
Questions about reused water bottles include whether


they contain bacteria that contain fecal coliform and cause bad
breath or cavities.
"Coliform bacteria are the group of bacteria that come from
your digestive tract," Simonne said.
Coliform bacteria can also be the cause of cramps, diarrhea
and nausea.
According to Simonne, studies done at an elementary school
in Alberta, Canada, found that the total bacteria coliform count
in water bottles exceeded the necessary count, and, therefore,
the use of personal water bottles was not recommended.


Drinking from a reused water bottle might increase your
chances of getting sick because of the bacteria that is being
transferred from your mouth to the bottle, Simmone said.
"I reuse my water bottle all the time," said
Public Maria Grayson, business administration major at
Safety UF. "I just never had second thoughts."
Grayson goes to the gym at least twice a week,
and she always takes her water bottle with her.
"I'll continue to reuse it, but I will make sure to clean it out
or just throw it away before the month is over," Grayson said.

Students face fee hikes with new Board proposal


E UNDERGRADUATE HOUSING
COULD COST UP TO $75 MORE IF
THE PROPOSED FEES ARE PASSED.

By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
smgarry@alligator.org

Housing, Gator 1 Cards and parking
will cost UF students more next year if
the university's highest governing board


votes today to approve recommended
increases.
Two committees of the UF Board of
Trustees voted Monday to increase the
cost-of-living expenses for all UF stu-
dents.
Identification cards would cost $15
compared to thetisual $10. Parking decals
for faculty, staff and students will. cost 4 to
6 percent more.
Students would pay $98 for a yearlong


decal and $49 for a semester decal if the
increases are approved.
Single-student -housing may cost as
much as $75 more,
UF an increase of 4.5
Administration percent over last
year. In graduate
student and fam-
ily housing, students may pay $12 more
a month, a 3 percent rise over last year's
rent.


Both hikes would be a smaller percent-
age increase than last year's.
Student Body President Jamal Sowell
voted against the increases in housing
costs, although he told the committee
he supported improvements in graduate
housing.
Vice President for Student Affairs
Patricia Telles-Irvin cited rising costs for
utilities, maintenance of old buildings and
technology for the increases.

faculty and staff raises and fund
construction of research buildings.
"As you-know, we're in the thick
of the battle right now," Alfonso told
the committee. "There's a lot of run
left on this legislative session."
While the trustees debated how
to take command of tuition, the
Student Body president and only
student on the board sat quietly.
"They know how I stand," Jamal
Sowell said after the meeting. "I
believe that the power should stay
in the hands of our elected officials
because it gives us the ability as stu-
dents to lobby.".
The university's downplaying
of in-state and block-tuition con-
trol shows how lobbying efforts of
student governments all .over the
state, united in the Florida Student
Association, have been victorious,
Sowell said: SG also has its own
lobbyists-in place to fight the univer-
sity's efforts.
The university may have more
guns, deploying Machen, Adams
and Alfonso to carry the univer-
sity's message to legislators in
Tallahassee.


Both SG and the UF administra-
tion will send representatives to
Gator Day on April 6, when UF
stakeholders descend on the capitol
to boost support of the university
and further its agenda among law-
makers.

"They know how I stand.
I believe that the power
should stay in the hands of
our elected officials be-
cause it gives us the ability
as students to lobby."
Jamal Sowell
Student Body president


The UF administration will be
armed with Mr. Two Bits, Albert,
UF cheerleaders and lobbying visits
from trustees. They also may buy
an advertisement in the Tallahassee
Democrat for the day.
Sowell said SG will take student
senators and other students up to
the capitol with the rest of the UF
fleet, but that's where the collabora-
tion ends.
"Once we get up there we go to
our respective spots and lobby for
our own issues," he said.

Retrial begins in


local murder case


* A MISTRIAL WAS CALLED
LAST MONTH.

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

Gainesville resident Terrance
Lee Looney is back in court today
as he once again faces second-d6-
gree murder charges for the 2002
death of his brother.
The remains of Looney's
brother, James Ralph, 47, were
discovered in a trash can in 2003,
more than six months after offi-
cials believe he died.
According to police reports,
the two brothers, who lived to-
gether in their childhood home,
had a volatile relationship.
Loone\. 42, \wa\ convicted of felo-
ny battery in 2000 after breaking
James' leg with a tree branch.
,As part of his probation, Looney
was ordered to stay away from
both his brother and the home they
shared, at 215 NE 44th St.
However, subsequent visits
to the residence by Looney's
probation officer revealed that
the brothers were again living to-
gether, and Looney was arrested.
Upon his release two months lat-
er, Looney returned to the home,
according to an Alachua County
Sheriff's Office report.


The day after a weeklong va-
cation in September 2002,7James
did not return to work at a UF
medical building construction
site. Concerned friends visited
the brothers' home but found
only Looney at the residence.
Looney allegedly told his
probation officer that his brother
moved to Tampa.
It was only after a neigh-
bor wandered into the home's
backyard that she uncovered a
stench coming from a shed on the
property. Within
Sa large, standard-
i i A issue Gainesville
f-ciWth Regional Utilities
:-- trash can was the
body of James, par-
tially hidden under trash.
According to the medical
examiner's office, he had been
strangled.
Despite allegations that
Looney sold his brother's'tools,
rented out his brother's room
and wore his brother's clothes,
defense'attorney Matthew Wells
said the evidence against his cli-
ent is weak.
A mistrial was declared
when the case was first tried in

Foreign enrollment declining


GAU, from page 1


international students to ensure
they do not engage in acts of ter-
" rorism.
SG and GAU officials believe
UF's enforcement of a reduced
I $50 fee is partly responsible for
Sa decline in International enroll-
ment.
According to an SG resolution
Designed for presentation at the
Board of Trustees meeting, UF
suffered a 22 percent drop in en-
I rollment from 2003 to 2004.
I"Other comparable universi-
ties have paid the international
fee out of pocket," Ngin said. "I
I think the money is there for UF
to do the same thing; it just might
take some time."
The University of Texas at
Austin reimburses any interna-
tional student who has paid the
mandatory $100 SEVIS fee.
S About 40 protesters rallied at
Emerson beginning at 12:15 p.m.,
peppering the arriving trustees
with message-laden chants.
S Members from the United
Faculty of Florida also showed
up to support GAU, showing
I their appreciation for what grad-
Suate assistants bring to UF.
"I've had the privilege to work


with international and gradu-
ate students, and I appreciate
the enormous contribution they'
make to teaching and research at
UF," said Kim Emery, president
of the UF chapter of the faculty
union that serves all 11 Florida
public universities.
But the real issue, Emery said,
was that neither GAU nor SG was
allowed to confront the Board of
Trustees to comment on this is-
sue.
"This is absolutely germane
to the business of UF there's
a real problem when a group
of people appointed by folks
in Tallahassee are unwilling to
listen to. the talented and dedi-
cated scholars who do so much of
the real work at the university,"
Emery said.
The protest lasted for about 90
minutes, ending because many
protesters had to leave in time to
teach classes.
I think this protest is pretty
successful," said GAU Co-
President Victor Romano. "We've
had all sorts of people show their
support for us today. We're just
trying to make our presence
felt."
"Hopefully, in time, we will be
able to remove this unnece-sary
fee," he said.

should finally receive the attention he deserves,
tow that his team relocated from Montreal to
Vashington, D.C. in the offseason.
Known as the 'last Expo' because he was

apan in the fall, he might also be UF's greatest
baseballl player.
While playing for UF from 1996-1998,
ie led the Gators to a pair of College World
Series appearances and was crowned with the
Rotary Smith Award and National College
baseball Writer's Association Player of the
Year award his final year.
"It'5 5ll about ILnltal ability," Wilkerson
;aid. "I think going to school and maturing as
i person made me mentally tough to be where

The Smith award is given annually to the

information directors nationwide.
He was a part of All-American teams each

At a recent game at the Nationals' spring
raining complex, Eckstein recalled his time
alongside Wilkerson in 1996.
"Brad was unbelievable," Eckstein said.
'Brad was awesome. He was the best player
n college baseball his freshman year. Just an
believable talent, one of the best competi-
ors you ever want to meet."
Wilkerson was the team leader in batting

As part of the Washington Nationals,
Wilkerson will learn from manager Frank
Robinson. What does the Hall-of-Famer think
of the Gators alumnus?
"The term'star' is overused. Don't throw
that around," Robinson said. "He's not

Robinson attributes those assets to the

"It comes from good coaching, in high
school, college, on the sandlot, wherever he
was," Robinson said. "There are a lot of play-

Wilkerson recently bought a new house
in Palm Beach, but is stillsearching for a new
home in the Washington area.
"I think it's going to create a lot of revenue
for this team to improve the ballclub and put
a good product out there each and every year

can ask for as a player."

It's interesting that the most hate mail I've ever re-

opinion of the cartoonist only. Not me, not the news-
paper, not anyone but the
cartoonist himself.
Yet my e-mail box was
flooded with hate mail. Since
I get the pleasure of reading
it, I will let you in on some

and most importantly, a more nation-

As someone who follows the Gators
throughout the season, I felt this was
probably their best year since that Final
Four team that seems about a decade
ago.
But to everyone else, this loss is
simply another chapter in the UF early
exit book.
Who says they're wrong?
Billy Donovan will tell you over arid

Sure, it was a good season. Sure, the
SEC Championship was nice. Too bad


that's not what matters.
This pattern of good seasons before
bad Tournaments needs to end before
people forget what the Gatqrs did in
2000.
How does Donovan stop the bleed-
ing?
I have no idea,-but I know he needs
to do it. Despite the recent Tournament
shortcomings, you can't mention fir-
ing him. My friend owns the domain
www.FireBillyD.com, but there is no
site yet. Nor should there be.
Donovan just needs to get this fixed.
One start would be acknowledging
that this is disappointing. Billy said he

complished this year was incredible.

Mullen said Dickey has done a great job try-

"I invest a lot of time volunteering on my

Although Coach Urban Meyer said Dickey
sn't been doing enough to learn the new

arterbacks.
"It helps, but it also cuts down on your

"It's a hard offense to learn. You've got to

Mullen said Dickey shows more poise than

ence, he's right it's a good record.
However, the overall record doesn't
matter. It shouldn't matter. If a team
goes undefeated in the regular season
before bowing out in the first round, is
that incredible?
No, the team just looks like a fraud
like it didn't belong.
The Gators aren't close to that, but if
they keep losing on the first weekend,
the same questions will be asked and
the same answers spun by Donovan
about how great a season it was and
how many accomplishments the Gators
achieved.
For this UF program that Donovan
has built, a great season is a deep
postseason run not a first- or second-
round loss.

Roberson still undecided about draft


By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

One stellar scoring season
and a post-season scoring
drought removed from his de-


cision to forgo a professional
career last May, junior guard
Anthony Roberson refused
to speculate whether he will
enter the NBA Draft this sum-
mer.
"Out of respect for my


UF guard Anthony Roberson must decide between a senior
season at UF or an early NBA career. Roberson was the
Southeastern Conference's leading regular-season scorer but
struggled in the NCAA Tournament.


teammates, I haven't even re-
ally thought about my future,"
said Roberson, following UF's
76-65 NCAA Tournament sec-
ond-round loss to Villanova
on Sunday. "Right now it's all
about Florida.
"I respect coach and my
teammates, and I'm focused.
on what just happened, not
my future."
After waiting until the May
11 deadline for entering the
NBA Draft last year, Roberson
decided to return to UF for a
junior year in which he led the
Southeastern Conference, av-
eraging 20.8 points per game
in league play.
His prolific scoring made
Roberson the runner-up for
SEC Player of the Year honors,
but he scored only 5 points
Sunday, all of which came in
the game's opening 3 min-
utes.
Sunday's 1-for-8 effort
followed a 3-for-15, 11-point
performance in a near-UF
first-round collapse against
Ohio on Friday.
Despite the postseason col-
lapses, the regular-season SEC
scoring leader said he feels his
UF career has been satisfying.
"Looking over my career
at Florida, I think I've had a
great career," Roberson said.
"I wish it just my junior
year would've ended a little
different."

INSPIRATION TO WEAR:

family, classmates, professors
and even lowly sports writers:

Prior to UF's NCAA
Tournament loss to Villanova,
Coach Billy Donovan wanted
to make sure his players took
the floor with a selfless mind-
set.
So before tipoff, Donovan
asked his players to dedicate
the game to someone special
outside of the UF locker room.
The Gators responded by car-
rying those loved ones onto
the hardwood with them.

his final game to a high-school

dent, while junior guard Matt

ther.
Roberson played for his
grandmother, mother and
former UF coaching assistant

Parker was indefinitely
suspended from his team
duties after being arrested
on federal charges of cocaine

His trial is set to begin on

For the first time all spring, UF had a full
quarterback corps at practice.
Redshirt junior Gavin Dickey and red-
shirt freshman Cornelius Ingram have been
playir'f baseball and basketball, respectively.


Ingram's basketball season ended Sunday,
while Dickey had a day off from baseball
practice.
It was a relief for quarterbacks coach Dan
Mullen, also the offensive coordinator.
"When you only see three quarterbacks
the first couple days, you're getting a little
nervous on how we can go through a season
with just this," Mullen said.


Mullen said both Ingram and Dickey are
behind, but that is to be expected since they
missed the installment of some new plays.
Dickey has been working hard to balance
football, baseball and life.
"It's tough," Dickey said. "There are only
so many hours in a day and I have to eat and

o it seems there's a little
controversy about a certain

I don't agree with making fun
of Walsh for crying, though.
To me, his tears show how
much he cares about this team.
So he didn't shoot well in UF's
Tournament "run." He gave it
his all. Anthony Roberson didn't
seem to care;- Every time I looked

After the fifth first-weekend
exit in as many years, you can't

think it is. Not next year. Not un-

Yes, I realize Villanova is a
