Bill aims to control 'leftist' professors
* THE LAW COULD LET STUDENTS
SUE FOR UNTOLERATED BELIEFS.
By JAMES VANLANDINGHAM
Alligator Staff Writer
TALLAHASSEE Republicans on the
House Choice and Innovation Committee
voted along party lines Tuesday to pass a bill
that aims to stamp out "leftist totalitarianism"
by "dictator professors" in the classrooms of
.The Academic Freedom Bill of Rights, spon-
sored by Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, passed
8-to-2 despite strenuous objections from the
only two Democrats'on the committee.
The bill has two more committees to pass
before it can be considered by the full House.
While promoting the bill Tuesday, Baxley
said a university education should be more
than "one biased view by the professor, who
as a dictator controls the classroom," as part of
"a misuse of their platform to indoctrinate the
next generation with their own views."
The bill sets a statewide standard that
students cannot be punished for professing
beliefs with which their professors disagree.
Professors would also be advised to teach
alternative "serious academic theories" that
may disagree with their personal views.
According to a legislative staff analysis
of the bill, the law would give students who
think their beliefs are not being respected legal
standing to sue professors and universities.
SStudents who .believe their professor is
singling them out for "public ridicule" for
instance, when professors use the Socratic
method to force students to explain their theo-
ries in class would also be given the right to

CITY ELECTION PROFILES
Lawyer says 'Make art, not war'
Gabe Kaimowitz, a nationally recognized civil rights lawyer, is
running for the Gainesville City Commission At-Large seat.
Editor's note: This is the third in a series of four
articles taking a closer look at candidates for the
Gainesville City Commission At-Large seat.
By BRIAN HAGEN
Gabe Kaimowitz promises to be unforgettable.
At his insistence, the At-Large candidate will use no lawn
posters and no last name.
On the ballot, he will be listed only by his first name,
Gabriel, and would prefer to be addressed only as such.
He has said publicly that UF President Bemie Machen has
no interest in Gainesville, and that he lost hope for Mayor
"It's like a little broken love affair between us," he said.
Kaimowitz said he has a domestic partner who has no part
in his campaign and "probably would vote against [him]."
His campaigning has been limited to radio and newspa-
per ads, public forums and his Web page situated on the
local elections site www.freeforallcandidates.com which
had accumulated 474 hits as of Tuesday.
But his is a campaign championing art and humor, he said,
invoking the spirit of his favorite movie, "Life is Beautiful."
"That's the point Holocaust humor," he said. "When
things are so bad, what are you going to do but laugh?"
After visiting his "campaign office" Mail Boxes Etc. -
in a houndstooth sports coat with frayed edges, Kaimowitz
explained his campaign concepts on the dandelion-covered
banks of Hogtown Creek.
Laughter and outrageousness are his strategy for appeal-
ing to voters, he said.
"I am in favor of Affordable Humor and Workfare for
the Humorless, many of whom idle away in semiretire-
ment in gated communities or on secret golf courses," wrote
Kaimowitz on his Web site.
In the past, his theatrics included revealing a cartoon
poster of a naked man with an American flag in his rectum in
a City Commission meeting.
Gainesville can expect more drama if he wins, he said.
"Absolutely," he said. "It's all performance.
Commissioners have no meaningful power."
Kaimowitz's campaign behavior often distracts vot-
ers from his illustrious career as a civil rights lawyer.
Several of his cases gained national attention. In 1973, he sued
on behalf of patients slated for lobotomy, setting a precedent
hindering attempts to control minds through surgery.
In 1977, Kaimowitz was the first to legally establish "black
English" as a separate dialect. His victory in the case required
teachers to take classes teaching them not to discriminate
"My whole campaign is targeted at students.
If they were to hear the issues, they would
vote overwhelmingly for me."
At-Large candidate for the Gainesville City Commission
against students who spoke it.
His recent stances on race have been equally controversial.
Kaimowitz has mentioned that misspelling on banners ad-
vertising Martin Luther King Day events used black English.
He said the banner mistake would keep UF from growing
into a great university.
Because Student Government's proposed adjunct com-
missioner would not have voting rights, the city's "separate
but equal" treatment of students would continue, he said.
"My whole campaign is targeted at students," he added.
"If they were to hear the issues, they would vote overwhelm-
ingly for me."

ed from light to somber and back

his works to a mostly student audi-

the worst job he ever had, a fat bat
that flew into his bedroom and a

killing a cockroach.
"I'm guilty of going for the yuks
with the prose pieces," he said.
Carroll is best known for
"Diaries," which was made into a
movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio
Reading from one essay entitled
"A Day at the Races," Carroll de-
picted a time he and his girlfriend

Mayor talks to
By IVETTE MENDEZ
Contrary to what vying Student Government par-
ties Gator and Impact may lead students to believe, SG
cannot change local ordinances without city approval.
Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan spoke at
Tuesday night's Student Senate meeting to inform
students about the importance of their involvement in
The final say in issues such as bar and club closing
times and roam towing rates do not come from UF's
Student Government, or its administration for that
matter, she said.
Those decisions lie in the hands of Gainesville's
seven City Commissioners, three of whom are up for
re-election March 29.
.,. ; "It certainly does affect you while
you are here," Hanrahan said.
Last year, the mayoral election
that eventually put Hanrahan in
office took place during UF's Spring
Break. Students and faculty are a big
constituency, making up about half
of Gainesville's population.
Hanrahan "In Gainesville, you have to
get 50 percent plus one to win,"
Hanrahan said. "I had to go to a runoff because it was
Spring Break time."
One difficult part of being mayor, she said, is that
she cannot say whom she supports in the upcoming
election. Her position makes Hanrahan a member on
the city's Canvassing Board, which tallies ballots.
"I'm not taking a position this election," Hanrahan
It's tough because whoever gets into office has a
huge impact, she said.
To show students whether they are eligible to vote
in the District 2 or 3 race the At-Large seat can be
voted on by any resident: of Gainesville Hanrahan
brought a city map with the electoral districts delin-
"I am in District 4, which is not up for re-election at
this time," Hanrahan said, dodging the question of her
vote for this election.
She said she wants students to take part in making
UF a better school, to make UF a Top 10 public research
university so degrees earned here would be worth
more in the job market, Hanrahan said.
"Both Gainesville and the university have that
goal," she said.
The mayor ended by emphasizing the changes stu-
dents can make in government.
Commission hopefuls weigh in on Gainesville safety issues
By ELIZABETH PRANN
The nine candidates vying for three City Commission seats
took on the city-wide issue of public safety at Tuesday night's
forum at the United Christ Church of Gainesville.
The issue was focused to the four open-forum participants
in the race for the Gainesville-wide elected At-Large City
Commission seat incumbent Rick Bryant and candidates
Diyonne McGraw, a realtor, carpenter Rob Brinkman and at-
torney Gabe Kaimowitz.
In an interview prior to the forum, Kaimowitz said.his big-
gest concern was the tumultuous relationship between local
police and the black community.
He referred to an incident that occurred about a year ago
when officers disrupted a downtown arts festival, confiscat-
ing videotapes and other materials from about 11 merchants.
Allegations of racial discrimination stemmed from the inci-
"Relations are tense despite what you hear," he said, adding
that neither the black community nor law enforcement is ap-
proaching the issue properly.
Another improvement he would like to see is a certain
amount of money set aside for more personnel and-increases
"It comes down to the ability to mediate or negotiate," he
In addition, Kaimowitz said-he would like to see more di-
versity, with at least one black female firefighter working for
the city again, adding that though there used to be one, she is
no longer with the force.
"Relations are tense despite what you hear."
At-Large City Commission candidate
Lastly, Kaimowitz said at the forum that although he is
70-years-old, he has never seen a community in which the
leading spokesperson is a police officer, noting that the situa-
tion leaves room for distortion and crass conclusions without
On the other hand, candidate Rob Brinkman, whose plat-
form priority is a healthy community for children, proposed
prevention as the solution to Gainesville's public safety is-
He said there are 2,400 inmates released annually from
the prison located in Starke, about 30 minutes away from the
heart of Gainesville, and that many of them head back in to
"There has to be a better way," he said.
He said he also agrees with prevention programs aimed at
juveniles that intend to deter them from prison.
Bryant, who states that his platform is stronger and safer
neighborhoods, also discussed juvenile issues.
He told listeners about the success of Teen Zone. an after-
school program designed to prevent juvenile crimes during
the afternoon hours between the end of school and'before
parents return from work.
"Public safety is job No. 1," Bryant said, touting his record
of supporting an increase in budget for the Gainesville Police
He was present when the commission allocated 275
laptops to patrol vehicles, with the intention of preventing
them from making trips back to the station, keeping them in
neighborhoods because they can verify information in their
McGraw, who prides herself on her community and social
service participation that dates back more than 10 years, also
is a proponent for increasing public safety
"It's an important issue all across town," McGraw said,
adding her concern that implementation of any programs
be done equ itabl across Gainesville, as well as .addressing
homelessness and poverty.

Professor advances PC
By KEELEY MCCARTY
Alligator Contributing Writer
A UF engineering professor is using
the concept of ordered chaos to develop
a new computer prototype.
William Ditto, chairman of the
UF biomedical department, used the
roulette wheel as an example of chaos.
Where the ball lands on the wheel
seems random, but careful observation
reveals patterns behind the results.
Ditto said his prototype has the po-
tential to be faster, cheaper and easier
to build, with fewer constraints than
today's personal computer.
"I don't know how often you get a
chance to recreate the personal com-
puter," he said.
Ditto and colleague Sudeshna Sinha
started research for the project in 1998.
The first chips to possess the chaos
technology were created about one
year ago, and Ditto estimated it will
take another three years until a com-
puter prototype is available.
In today's PC, the motherboard
- the circuit board that controls the
computer is sectioned off into groups
of specialized chips.
The elements of the chaos mother-
board have the potential to perform the
tasks each specialized chip in a normal
motherboard can do, said Aris Miliotis,
a biomedical engi-
U F neering graduate stu-
Research dent who is helping
Ditto with research.
"Instead of everybody being spe-
cialized, everybody can do everyone
else's job," Ditto said.
The versatility of the chaos elements
allows them to be used where they are
needed at any point in time, rather than
being limited by specialization.
Though obstacles still lie ahead,
such as developing an operating sys-
tem to run the new computer, Ditto
said he is hopeful for the project's

Students have one last
opportunity to speak up
After all the rumors of dirty politics, all of the extensive
Alligator coverage and all of the just plain madness,
today finally is the last day of voting for Student
Government executive positions.
At this point, all arguments have distilled into two opposite
One, which includes the Alligator and the more student-ac-
cess-oriented candidates, says students must vote if they want
to be fairly represented in SG..
The other, which includes the general attitude of the student
body and is encouraged by SG elitists, holds that everything
already is predetermined, and there is nothing students can do
to change it.
All we have to say is that students have as much power as
they want to take it upon themselves to acquire.
The numbers speak for themselves.
Less than 20 percent of the student body voted.
No party received 50 percent of the vote in the elections.
No party demonstrated enough support from the student
body to claim control of SG outright.
So, the students have a choice. And make no mistake: It is the
We receive countless complaints that students aren't being
considered; that SG members are spending student money for
their own gain or for the benefit of those who patted their backs
along the way; and that the administration is making decisions
that affect the students without letting the students have a say.
Students roll their eyes and say, "That's SG for you" any time
the Alligator runs a story about another SG organization whose
leadership positions have been pawned off for political favors.
If so many of the students are disgusted with the way SG
works, then surely.more than 20 percent of them can spare the
five minutes it takes to vote.
Isn't it worth those few minutes to be able to have a say in
what goes on at your university? Isn't it worth it to be able to say
that you helped to make things better?
It's a sad state of affairs.when so many answer "no" through
But there still is one last chance for those who decide they
want to make a difference. It's infinitely better late than never.
We have made it clear that we support the Impact Party, and
that we feel the student body must as well if they are going to
maintain and continue the advances in student access that have
been so hard-won over the past year.
If students do not go out and vote for the candidates that will
represent them, don't be surprised if these advances disappear.
Don't be surprised if legacy positions are solidified.
Don't be surprised if Diane Kassim, a community affairs
cabinet director of the Black Student Union the organization-
whose members abruptly jumped ship from Impact hours be-
fore the slating deadline happens to become Student Senate
president after the elections.
Don't be surprised if this is just the tip of the iceberg.
In short, don't be surprised if everything you expect of SG
continues to happen-business as usual.
It would be business as usual, but it doesn't have to be that
way if students are willing to step up.
If students vote, they easily can elect any candidate -
whether it's the representatives of the minority or the majority.
If students don't vote, then the naysayers are right: There's
nothing students can do if they aren't willing to do anything.

Real issue is right to refuse treatment
T erri Schiavo's death would be a tragedy. But any-
one who says the Schiavo case is about the "right
to die" or the "right to life" isn't being honest. It's
about the right to refuse treatment.
WVe preserve that right for Jehovah's Witnesses,
Christian Scientists and others who object to certain
medical practices. As we forge ahead with stem cell re-
search, nanotechnology and cloning, expect to see many
others who opt out of certain "treatments."
Assuming that Schiavo's husband is telling the truth,
and that she truly wished not to be kept alive artificially,
we must respect those wishes. To do otherwise is to re-
voke the basic human right to self-determination.
Whatever our religious beliefs, we recognize that the
law should not be used to enforce those beliefs upon oth-
ers in this private situation. To do so would be to create
the "nanny state" that conservatives so despise and sub-
ject ourselves to the tyranny of the majority in the name
of personal beliefs rather than the public good.
None of this is to say that the branches of government
should not intervene, erring on the side of life if there
is any doubt as to Schiavo's intent. Nor is it to say that
those who believe refusing treatment is a sin should not
work to create social change, urging-others not to exer-
cise their right to do so, while respecting the validity of
that legal right. It's certainly not to say Schiavo's life isn't
valuable or that her death isn't tragic.
For my part, though, I don't know what Schiavo
wanted only she, her husband and God can truly
know. Nor is there any great certainty in my soul that
refusing treatment is a sin. All I can do, then, is to pray
- for Schiavo, for her husband, for her parents, for the
lawyers and judges and legislators, for the citizens on all
sides of the debate, for forgiveness and reconciliation
- and encourage everyone to put their wishes in writ-
ing, so these painful situations can be,made less rancor-
ous and divisive.

heinous: an individual personally refusing medical treat-

life not valuable if you've committed a crime? Yet those
"sticking up" for Schiavo are the same people who de-
fend capital punishment.

Students shouldn't expect UF to pay fee
Editor: It's amazing that reaction against the
$50 SEVIS fee charged by UF for international
students is being couched in terms of it as be-
ing racist. I assume that every international
student is being levied this fee regardless of
their race, whether they are a pale-skinned
Scot.or a dark-skinned Polynesian.
As for the fee being unfair to foreign stu-
dents, life is not fair. If you don't like the fee,
don't come to the United States. There is no
inherent human right to any university in
whichever country you please.
I admit that I say these things being in the
privileged position of having been born a citi-
zen of the United States. But my parents were
immigrants; my father was a foreign graduate
student like so many of the foreign students
now attending this university. My parents are
the people I admire the most in this world.
My father provided for a young family of four,
having to feed; clothe and buy all other neces-
sities on less than $100 a month after paying
rent remember babies and young kids.are
expensive less than the $100 SEVIS fee
charged by the U.S. government. '
Personally, I would prefer that the univer-
sity find money in the budget to pay the fee for
international students. But, as it is, the univer-
sity is paying half the fee. If an international
student is unhappy about that, then I suggest
that they may return to their home country
and whine there. Let another foreign student
who is willing to work hard take their place.
Column on Schiavo case got facts wrong
Editor: As a political scientist and as
a journalist, the author of the column the
Alligator printed Monday regarding the
Terri Schiavo dilemma showed remarkably
little concern for the facts of the case. His
disregard for the legal system of the country
is even more worrisome.
Schiavo has been declared to be in a per-
sistent vegetative state by several state'and
appellate courts. Several doctors who have
examined her have determined that she
would not-significantly benefit from rehabil-
itative therapy. Since she is not competent,
all decisions regarding her medical care are
the responsibility of her legal guardian: her
husband, Michael Schiavo.
The U.S. Supreme Court decided that
it is a protected right of an individual to
deny medical treatment. Let's not throw
around the phrase "It just feels wrong" or
Specifically stated in the Constitution
is the rule of thumb that, if an issue is not
resolved in -that document, the decision
is to be left up to the governments of the

Letters to the Editor
Alligator should be ashamed of cartoon
Editor: Prior to Monday's Alligator, I
always had been impressed with your news-
paper. Sometimes I thought-the articles were
too one-sided, but the next day there would be
some that swayed me back to middle ground.
That all changed when I opened up to Page
6 and saw a caricature of Matt Walsh with
tears beading down his face in the form of the
word "Choke." I am embarrassed. I would be
ashamed if I were the editor of the paper.
I know that when an athlete takes the court,
they always are open for praise and for criti-
cism; that all is part of the job. What you have
done is bush-league. Matt Walsh would do
anything humanly possible to will his team to
victory. He is one of the gutsiest players ever to
wear a Gators uniform a player who leaves-
it all on the court every game he plays.
I am disappointed in your decision to run
that caricature. You show more respect for
a young man who. dives for loose balls and
makes defensive stops time and time again.
Marketing Director, University Athletic
Walsh was accurately parodied in paper
Editor: Andy Marlette's depiction of Matt
Walsh's sobbing face captured Walsh's main
weakness: his drama. Sure, Walsh played well -
during the SEC Tournament, and I give him
the respect he has earned.
Coincidentally, most will agree that it was
during the SEC Tournament that his level of
drama was at its minimum. But wait, let's
forget about being sensitive for a moment
and cash out this drama business of his. How
many times have we seen Walsh drive wildly
out of control towards the rim, only to have his
hair fly one way and his body fly the other?
During such occasions, the ball usually ends
up in the hands of the opponent, and Walsh
ends up on the floor without anyone even
touching him. That's when Walsh does his fa-
mous Nancy Kerrigan impersonation with
his-familiar hands up in the air, quizzical look
and whiny sigh:
We've all seen it; we've all cursed at him for
it. Heck, he earned his nickname, "Princess,"
because of it.
Marlette's cartoon may have done what
Walsh's coaches, fans and friends have failed
to do: tell him the truth.
It is not appropriate to 'trash' a student
Editor: Freedom of the press notwith-
standing, that Matt Walsh cartoon was very
inappropriate and uncalled for. I can't think
of too many instances where I'd find it accept-
able to "trash" a student (read: non-profes-
sional) athlete who busts his ass every game,
and I would like to see the Alligator issue an
apology to Matt and the team.
Cartoon sullies player's good reputation
Editor: I was disappointed with the car-
toon and story banner about the basketball
team Monday. To imply Matt Walsh choked
is so far from accurate it is not even remotely
plausible. Your paper should give itself a
"Dart" and apologize to these athletes who
go to extreme efforts to represent UF To enter
the playing field and compete is laudable in its
own right, but to win 24 games and the SEC
Tournament should not so quickly be forgot-
ten. The paper's cartoon has been reproduced
all over the internet to the delight of fans of
rival schools and tarnished the reputation of
a guy who regularly is booed and screamed at
because he gives his all to win for the Gators. It
was a sad day for Gators on Sunday afternoon
and your-Monday morning depiction made it
worse. I regularly praise the Alligator to po-
tential young journalists who have an interest
pursuing careers in the print media. You are
capable of much better work than this.
Walsh is a public figure, open to ridicule
Editor: I think the cartoon of Matt Walsh is
quite funny. Some may find it harsh and unfair,
but they fail to realize something: Matt Walsh
takes part in collegiate athletics, which means
he is going to be subject to some scrutiny. By
being I college athlete, he is a public figure to
some extent which means people are going
to write and sometimes even draw things that
he does not like. Yes, it was a big loss, but he
should have some more composure espe-
cially when he is on national TV.
The bottom line is he still is a great athlete.
Fans also should stop saying it is so mean and
such a terrible thing to do to a college athlete.
All college athletes take heat, such as the ever-
so-intelligent Chris Rix, for example, for his
little parking incidents. At FSU, they actually
made T-shirts mocking him for it.
It all is part of being an athlete or any
public figure for that matter. We hold them on
a high enough pedestal as it is; we should be
able to make fun of them once in a while.

aids in debate
By JEFF SIRMONS
There was no debate as to what Brianna Coakley wanted
out of college. As a senior in high school, she visited colleges
and immediately spoke with their debate team coaches.
"I knew I wanted to debate," Coakley said. "Even
though I never did it, I just knew it was for me."
Now, Coakley, a sophomore, is on UF's national debate
team because of her quick thinking and will to succeed.
"I was able to conceptualize my opponent's argument
and could pinpoint their weaknesses," she said. "I knew
then that we would win the debate, and when
On I spoke, everything poured outjust right. And
Campus we won."
Her success has helped propel UF to
Gonzaga University, where it is now competing with 77
other teams for the national championship.
"Very rarely would you have a novice debater debating
with experienced veterans," debate coach Frank Irizarry
said. "That's like starting a freshman quarterback with no
high school experience in college. You just don't do that."
But because of several letdowns from more experienced
debaters, Irizarry placed the burden on Coakley, who, he
said, has gone far past expectations.
"We put Brianna in quite a situation, and she's done
quite well," Irizarry said.
Coakley and partner Morgan Weinstein are in the na-
tional championships for the first time together, and rep-
resent UF there for the second time in three years after not
competing since the early 1970s.
"We're just trying to make a name for ourselves and
reemerge as a powerhouse," Weinstein said, recalling UF's
storied debate program history, which includes two second-
place finishes, in 1947 and 1954.
Looney back in court after mistrial
By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
Forensic Investigator Lorenzo
Davis was off duty the night of April
15, 2003 wherf a phone call sum-
moned him to the little white house
at 215 NE 44th St.
By the time Davis arrived,
the property was swarming with
Alachua County Sheriff's Office de-
tectives, who directed him to a small
utility shed in the backyard.
Within a trash can were the re-
mains of James Ralph Looney.
According to the Medical
Examiner's Office, they had been
there for more than six months, and
it was Davis' responsibility to sort
through the trash can and classify its
.contents, beginning the long road to
a courtroom in the Alachua County
Criminal Courthouse where James'
brother, Terrance Lee Looney, sat in
the defendant's chair.
The second round of opening ar-
guments, after a mistrial last month,
was heard Tuesday in the trial of
Looney, a Gainesville inan charged
with second-degree murder.
Witness and Looney's criminal
record indicated the brothers, who
lived together in their childhood
home, had a strained relationship.
Two days before Christmas in
2000, Looney, 42, attacked his-brother
with a tree limb and broke James' leg,
which led to his conviction for felony
battery. Looney's probation ordered
him to stay away from James.
Nevertheless, on routine visits to
the Looney home, officer Robin Pryor
repeatedly found the brothers still liv-
ing together, and in 2002, Looney was
arrested. Upon release, Looney once
again returned to live with James.
James, 47, an electrician employed
at a construction site on UF's campus,
went on a weeklong paid vacation
Sept. 13; 2002.-However, when he
failed to return to work ten days later,
his employer mailed his last pay-
check to the Looney residence.
Inquiries concerning James'
whereabouts failed to return any
leads. According to witness testimo-
ny, at times Looney said his brother
moved to High Springs and at other
times, to Jacksonville.
"The state will tell you that
Terrance Looney killed his
brother, folded him up and
just put him in shed on their
own property, but their evi-
dence is inefficient."
Attorney for Terrence Lee Looney
Looney allegedly told Pryor
when she questioned him that James
moved to Tampa.
On April 15, 2003, months after
James is said to have disappeared, a
foul odor stemming from the Looney
property attracted the attention of
a neighbor. She was the one to first
discover the remains of.James in a
standard-issue Gainesville Regional
Utilities trash can inside the shed.
Among the exhibits the state
entered into evidence Tuesday were
approximately 30 crime scene pho-
tographs taken by Davis upon his
arrival to the Looney property.
The last photo was presented
to Davis alone. When questioned,
Davis paused, sighed and said he
As members of the jury examined
it, they tried to turn the print as if to
establish a reference point, to deter-
mine if they were holding it correctly.
Taken from an angle directly above
the mouth of the trash can, the photo
depicted its gruesome contents.
However, Looney's attorney
Matthew Wells said facts are weak.
"The state will tell you that
Terrance Looney killed his brother,
folded him up and just put him in
shed on their own property, but their
evidence is inefficient," Wells said.
Among the evidence Wells ques-
tioned is the exact date of James'
death, maintaining that James
could have been strangled anytime
between September and April, and
that it is very likely that his client was
incarcerated at the time.
Nevertheless, witness testimony
Tuesday revealed that after his
brother's disappearance, Looney
cashed his brother's paycheck, wore
his brother's clothes and pawned his
brother's tools just days after James is
alleged to have disappeared.
The pawnbroker who made the
transaction testified that he ques-
tioned the man who sold the items.
According to the prosecution, the
signature of the seller is Terrance's.
"This case. is driven by detail, not
by doubt or speculation," prosecutor
Jeanne Singer said.

Bill lets offended students sue
FREEDOM, from page 1
"Some professors say, 'Evolution is a
fact. I don't want to hear about Intelligent
Design (a creationist theory), and if you
don't like it, there's the door,"' Baxley
said, citing one example when he thought
a student should sue.
Rep. Dan Gelber, D-Miami Beach,
warned of lawsuits from students enrolled
in Holocaust history courses who believe
the Holocaust never happened.
Similar suits could be filed by students
who don't believe astronauts landed on
the moon, who believe teaching birth
control is a sin or even by Shands medi-
cal students who refuse to perform blood
transfusions and believe prayer is the only
way to heal the body, Gelber added.
"This is a horrible step," he said.
"Universities will have to hire lawyers so
our curricula can be decided by judges in
courtrooms. Professors might have to pay
court costs even if they win from
their own pockets. This is not an innocent
piece of legislation."
The staff analysis also warned the bill
may shift responsibility for determining
whether a student's freedom has been
infringed from the faculty to the courts.
But Baxley brushed off Gelber's-con-
cerns. "Freedom is a dangerous thing, and
you might be exposed to things you don't
want to hear," he said. "Being a business-
man, I found out you can be sued for any-
thing. Besides, if students are being perse-
cuted and ridiculed for their beliefs, I think
they should be given standing to sue."
During the committee hearing, Baxley
cast opposition to his bill as "leftists"
struggling against "mainstream society."
"The critics ridicule me for daring to
stand up for students and faculty," he said,
adding that he was called a McCarthyist.
Baxley later said he had a list of stu-
dents who were discriminated against by
professors, but refused to reveal names
because he felt they would be persecuted.
Rep. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood,
argued universities and the state Board of
Governors already have policies in place
to protect academic freedom. Moreover,
a state law outlining how professors are
supposed to teach would encroach on the
board's authority to manage state schools.
"The big hand of state government
is going into the uni-
versities telling them
how to teach," she
said. "This bill is the
antithesis of academic
But Baxley com-
o w pared the state's uni-
Sobel versities to children,
saying the legislature
should not give them money without
providing "guidance" to their behavior.
"Professors are accountable for what
they say or do," he said. "They're ac-
countable to the rest of us in society ..-
All of a sudden the faculty think they can
do what they want and shut us out. Why
is it so unheard of to say the professor
shouldn't be a dictator and control that
room as their totalitarian niche?"
In an interview before the meeting,
Baxley said "arrogant, elitist academics
are swarming" to oppose the bill, and
media reports misrepresented his inten-
"I expect to be out there on my own
pretty far," he said. "I don't expect to be
part of a team."

ID Card Services also have added a new system that allows
students to instantaneously transfer money from their debit or
credit card to their Gator 1 Card from any computer.
Six kiosks were added to the campus in August and offer
students places to transfer their funds. Two are in the Reitz
Union food court, as none of the restaurants accept debit or
credit cards. Others appear at Little Hall, the Gator Dining
Services office and the Gator 1 Card office in the UF Welcome
Thus far, students have made approximately 3,000 transac-
tions on campus and approximately 15,000 elsewhere.
The purpose of the venture is to save students money,
Morgan said. If campus food vendors took debit and credit
cards, he said, the cost of that implementation would be rolled
over to the consumer..
Housing rates jump
Students living in the majority of dorms next year will pay
$75 more each semester for housing.
Students in the two newest dorms, Lakeside Residential
Complex and Hume Hall, will pay only $50 more a semester.
In both cases, the $50 will go toward building maintenance and
increased utility costs.
The additional $25 charged to resi-
U F dents of older dorms will go to special
Administration projects and capital improvement,
such as the ongoing renovation of
Murphree Hall to add air conditioning
and revamp its operational systems.
"If you're good stewards of your buildings, you'll have a
plan in place for each of the buildings," said Sharon Blansett,
spokeswoman for the Division of Housing and Residence
Diamond Village, which houses mostly graduate students
and families, underwent a $15 million renovation last year.
Murphree should be ready for students to move in next Fall.
The new rates allow for utilities costs, which have risen 3 to
5 percent, and personnel costs, including a 2.5 percent raise for
salaried staff and a dollar increase in the minimum wage.
The rental rates represent a 3 to 4.5 percent increase over this
year, which is a little lower but fairly consistent with years past.
Housing rental rates have increased an average of 6.15 percent-
age points each year since 1998.
Students given decal 'bargain'
Student parking decal prices are increasing approximately
4 percent to help pay for the upkeep of parking facilities, such
as elevator replacement, repainting and utility bill increases,
However, some other decals for faculty and staff are increas-
' ing a little more to help pay for the same maintenance, includ-
ing medical resident reserved area decals, which are increasing

Lochte craves NCAA title

When most children first jump

to make a thundering splash with a
UF junior swimmer Ryan
Lochte, however, had different
plans as a kid.
"At his first meet, we knew he

his mother, Ike Lochte. "How far
he took it was up to him. It was

ethic, it's hard not to be success-
"I'm satisfied, but at the same
time I'm not," Lochte said. "My
expectations for myself are a lot

harder than most people and that
helps me. I'm taking one meet at
a time, and-right now it's NCAAs.
[Winning a national champion-

talked about. Our team this year
is a lot better; we've trained harder,
we're getting along better than ever
Lochte's goals may seem high to
anyone else, but according to him,
they are very reasonable. He has
some choice wvord- and gestures for
those who would tell him he was
aiming too high.
"I'd probably give them the
finger," Lochte said. "I'd throw in
a couple of cuss words at them too.
I guess everybody has their own
opinion, but I know what I'm ca-
pable of doing."
It's impossible to deny that
Lochte is reaching a new level, with
swimmers from other teams asking
for pictures with him in the middle
of meets. Even with this publicity,
Lochte remains stable.
"In a way, [the pictures and
publicity] help because I don't get
nervous or bothered," Lochte said.
"It just takes my mind off most of
the stuff. It's fun."

them; I'm swimming for myself."
Even with a second-place finish
to Auburn at the conference meet,
Lochte feels that the Gators are now
closer than ever to achieving his
goal of a national championship.
"[Auburn] didn't blow us out
of the water like they did last year
at SECs," Lochte said. "They know

He may just be right.
Tousek returns to glory through UF's ups, downs
By DAN TREAT
A lot has changed in the last three months
for the No. 6 UF gymnastics team.
The Gators' high score has jumped from
194.45 to 197.2, they've bounced as low as
No. 12 and as high as No. 4 in the national
rankings and 11 different gymnasts have con-
tributed scoring routines.

a better example of those changes then

weeks ago caused them to drop 13
spots in the rankings.
"I don't think we're a 15th-ranked
team talent-wise; we just haven't
played anybody yet," Coach.Roland

we play good tennis, I think we can
