Alcohol blamed in UF student's death

When he sped through the
intersection of Northwest 16th
Avenue at an estimated 90 mph,
his car became airborne, rolled
and crashed into .a telephone
pole, Gainesville Police spokes-
man Keith Kameg said.

Polls open in today's city election races
Absentee, early votes
higher than past years
By IVETTE MENDEZ

Gainesville residents dissatisfied with present ......-
regulations and representation will find voting in
today's election crucial if they want a shift in power.
Today is the last day to vote in the City
Commission races to choose three of the seven mem- -
bers who set and control citywide policies.
Alachua County Supervisor of Elections Pain
Carpenter emphasized the importance of taking part
in local elections.
"These are the people that have the biggest differ-
ence in our day-to-day lives," Carpenter'said.
Nine candidates are vying for the City
Commission seats, and campaigning could be seen
all around the city.
With a combined total of $137,000 in monetary
contributions, local lawns as well as street corners
crowded with sign-waving supporters have been
festive affairs for every candidate.
Continuing a trend from November, residents
also hit the polls early, resulting in higher numbers
in absentee ballots And early votes over previous
years' local elections.
In 2003, early voting, which begins two weeks be-
fore the election, only yielded 346 votes, Carpenter
"We're well above that," she said.
As of 6 p.m. Monday, tallied early votes totaled
515, a more than 100-vote increase.
But absentee ballots have a more profound effect
on the election than early votes.
"The absentee-ballot voting seems to be going
right in line," Carpenter said. "We've had over 1,000 Casey Anderson/ Alligator Staff

UF makes plan to alleviate parking pains
* PLANS CALL FOR TWO NEW
PARKING GARAGES BY 2009.
By DAVID COHEN
UF will always have an on-campus
parking problem, a university official
acknowledged Monday, but he insists
the issue is not being ignored.
"I know we have a lot more decal
holders than we have parking," said
James Morgan, director of UF's Business
Services Division. "We could never have
a one-to-one ratio. We don't have space
for it. We don't have the money for it."
Despite the alleged lack of funding,
Morgan said plans are in place for two
new parking garages within the next
four years, as well as 10 to 13 new bus
shelters by Fall 2005.
Morgan said the revenue created by
decals and student fees are expected to
pay for the facilities.
"We have more garages than any
other college in the nation," Morgan said
about UF's total of 13 garages.
UF Business Services Division,
Transportation and Parking Services,
and the Student Traffic Court have been
deliberating where the new facilities
should be located.
Student Government Treasurer
Dennis Ngin said SG is powerless when
it comes to parking.
"Parking is an ongoing issue. It's
probably never going to be solved,"
Ngin said. "We have a lot of students on
this campus with limited space. It's just
one of those things. There's no parking
on campus, and no SG official can feasi-
bly fix the parking problem."
Morgan said his organization has
reached out to SG to solve UF's parking
"We really set the priorities with
Student Government," he said. "We're
trying to do everything we can to be
Morgan admits that parking on-cam-
pus is not perfect, acknowledging that
the number of decals sold greatly out-
numbers available parking spaces by as
much as 250 percent.

Scott Fox over the course of a week seek-
ing comment about this
On. practice were not returned.
Cmpus Morgan said he believes
the practice of patience is
the key to a successful parking system.
"There are parking spaces available
on campus at any particular time,"'
Morgan said, adding students are re-
luctant to wait for a bus. "That 10 or 15
minutes is 10 or 15 minutes that people
don't have patience with."
Morgan encouraged students to
.utilize Regional Transit System buses,
which are free to all UF students simply
by showing their Gator 1 Card to the
driver, to help alleviate traffic conges-
"You can get a lot more people on the
bus than in a car. In the future, whether
people like it or not, they are going to be
taking that extra 10 or 15 minutes to go to
work," he said.
Peter Dayton, a UF building-con-
struction sophomore, had his share of
on-campus parking troubles last week.
Dayton's SUV was parked in front of
the Murphree Area, a Red 1 zone, when
he received a note from his Resident
Assistant telling him to go the area desk
or his car would be towed.
"I was kind of puzzled since I was
parked legally," Dayton said.
The Murphree Area desk attendant
told him that UF Transportation and
Parking Services called and he would
have to move his car so a lamppost light-
bulb could be changed.
"So it was in the middle of the day
and I had class and everything like that,"
Dayton said. "Parking Services told me,
at first, that if I called (University Police)
they would find another place for me to
park my car because at that time. of day,
it's very hard to find parking."
However when he called UPD,
Dayton said he was told that was inac-
"I would just have to do my best to
find another Red 1 (space), which would
probably not be open at that time," he
Dayton said he did not end up mov-
ing his car because he would be creating
another problem for someone else.
"I was about to move my car, and then
I realized someone is probably going to
pull in there in about five minutes, and
they are going to have the same problem.
(Transportation and Parking Services)
would just have to call them, track them
down, get them to move it and all that,"
Though he was not farhiliar with
Dayton's experience, Morgan admitted
the situation could have been handled
."There's other times to change light-
bulbs, too," Morgan said. "That sounds
like it could have been worked out bet-

Professor: UF should be 'Berkeley of the Southeast'
By EMILY YEHLE
UF should rise above the univer-
sity system pack and become the
"Berkeley of the Southeast," said a
UF professor who wrote a report
for the Board of Governors.
Grant Thrall told the state uni-
versities' highest governing power
Thursday that Florida's higher-
education system might not be able
to keep up with rapidly increasing
population, which is set t6 exceed
New York's in 10 to 15 years.
The solution, he said, is to imi-
tate California's university system,
dividing public colleges into two
The top tier includes institutions
that attract the best faculty and stu-
dents, such as Berkeley The second
tier is made up of universities that
serve more local needs.
Additional university branches
or entirely new schools could be
added to that second tier to take
care of increasing student num-
In his report, Thrall discovered
that only UF, FSU and FAMU had
a significant percentage of students
from all over the state, while the
other eight universities drew about
80 percent of their students locally.
UF draws statewide interest be-
cause of its academics, he said, and
thus brings Florida's best students.
Thrall, a City Commission can-
didate, said his suggestions mesh
with UF President Bernie Machen's
top university aspirations.
"Both of us have a shared vi-
sion that the University of Florida
will become the Berkeley of the

Southeast, and I think we are
poised to become that," he said.
But becoming a peer of Berkeley
means UF needs more money to at-
tract top-notch faculty, Thrall said.
That .money would have to come
from the Legislature or, more likely,
from the students.
"Does a Ferrari cost more than a
Volkswagen?" Thrall asked. "If you
want the best, you have to pay for
it. If you want to drive Ferrari, you
have to pay."
To meet a demand from local
students, he said, the state has
three options: create a UF branch
campus, reserve undergraduate
seats at UF or build an entirely new
Machen said that if UF had a
branch campus, it might affect the
university's quality. The solution
should balance access, cost and
quality, he said.
"Branch campuses for compre-
hensive, high-quality universities
have not worked around the coun-
try," he wrote in an e-mail. "This
approach addresses access but not
cost of quality."
Lynn Pappas, a Board of
Governors" member, said the gov-
ernors have to look closer at demo-
graphics before developing a plan.
The board hasn't decided
whether a need exists for more
. Thrall's report assumed
students couldn't leave their
geographic area to go to college,
Pappas said. However, she said
she was not convinced that a
four-hour drive to a non-local uni-
versity would stop students from
going to school.
But if closer inspection reveals
students who are tied down locally,
perhaps by a family or job, more lo-
cal opportunities may be necessary,
"I am certainly not prepared to
say we know enough of geographic
access to say that the California
model is what we want to pro-
pose," she said.
UF surveys staffers to gauge campuswide satisfaction
* THE RESULTS OF THE 82-QUESTION
SURVEY ARE EXPECTED IN JUNE.
By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
The group that represents UF's staff and
non-tenured faculty distributed 8,200 surveys
Friday in hopes of discovering the top two
or three things UF employees would change
about their workplace.
The campaign, called "Your Voice Your
UF," is the first-ever formal attempt by the.
university to gauge staff sentiments, said Jani
Sherrard, chairwoman of the Academic &
Professional Assembly, the group coordinat-
ing the survey.
"This is the first time it has been done cam-
puswide," Sherrard said. "It is an enormous,
positive opportunity to provide feedback."
To handle the 82-answer questionnaire, UF
hired International Survey Research, the same
company that conducted a faculty survey last
Spring, for about $77,000, said Ed Poppell, vice
-president for administrative affairs.
The company will compare UF's results to
employers around the country. Independent.
survey-taking also allows more anonymity in
collecting the responses, UF documents state.
The assembly has worked on the logistics
of the survey since December, including cat-
egorizing 186 workplaces around the state,
holding focus groups to generate questions
and testing a preliminary survey before mak-
ing the final version, Sherrard said.
Overall, about 150. employees had input
into the process, she said.
The survey also comes with a widespread
public-relations campaign. Fliers and notices
have appeared around campus, on the presi-.
dent's Web site and the myUFL portal.
Both UF President Bernie Machen and
Human Resources Director Larry Ellis sent"
e-mails to staff encouraging them to fill out
the survey during work time and stressing the
confidentiality of responses although one
of the first questions asks staffers to identify
which department they-work in.
"This project is based on my belief that
improvement is fueled by
. ..direct and candid feed-
S4 .l. back," Machen wrote in late
The assembly hopes to
beat.the response rate of last
t year's faculty survey, which
was 43 percent, Sherrard
said, adding that a response
Poppell rate of more than 50 percent
is considered terrific.
"I think people are very aware of the staff
survey," she said, and with questions unique
to UF and a good response rate, it should "re-
flect concretely on the UF experience."
Machen endorsed the idea after speaking
to the assembly in the Fall.
While the faculty survey showed discon-
tentment with pay and recognition, UF's staff
have had a difficult year with the implementa-
tion of a completely new, web-based account-
ing system that changed the work of many
employees in fundamental ways.
But Sherrard hopes the results of the
survey, expected in June, will coincide with
Machen's reorganization of human resources.
The president recently created a new position,
vice president for human resources, to address
morale issues for faculty and staff.
This semester, Machen hired Kyle
Cavanaugh of the University of Texas at
Austin as theifirst to fill the post, which reports
directly to the president. Cavanaugh takes of-
fice May 1.
Dale McPherson, a coordinator for the
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences,
said he completed his survey Friday.
"I think it's good for the administration
to know .what the people who work for
them think and feel about the organization,"
"Helping give the gift of sound"

Two UF students win prestigious Goldwater scholarship
* THREE HUNDRED UNDERGRADU-
ATES NATIONWIDE GET THE AWARD.
By JEFF SIRMONS
Joseph Wilson knew he was going to be
an engineer when he was a child. In high
school, he did engineering research at UCF.
At UF, he said he thinks organic chemistry
and modern physics are "just fine."
"I'm not completely geeky," he said.
"I do kung fu and go clubbing, and I like
Starbucks I do some normal college
But it's not his dancing that won this
UF electrical-engineering sophomore the
prestigious $7,500 Barry M. Goldwater
Scholarship it's his dedication to sci-
"I can see myself creating advanced im-
ages of the heart and creating innovative
signal-processing techniques for it in the
future," said Wilson, who plans to pursue
a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering.
Wilson presented his UCF research in
Taiwan as a high school- senior to hun-
dreds of electrical-engineering experts.
As a UF freshman, he presented his
summer biomedical engineering research
at the national Biomedical
On Engineering Society confer-
Campus ence in Philadelphia.
"I really enjoyed biomedi-
-cal engineering because it 'allowed me to
apply my electrical-engineering research
to the field of medicine," he said.
Wilson credited UF's honors program
as the catalyst for achievement.
The scholarship is given to 300 under-
graduates nationwide who plan to pursue
a Ph.D. in a math- or science-related field.
UF chemistry senior Edwin Homan also
won a Goldwater Scholarship. He received
the honor while conducting chemistry re-
search in France under, the leadership of
Jean-Marie Lehn, who won the 1987 Nobel
Peace Prize for research in supramolecular
"[Homan's] really scary smart," said
-Randolph Duran, UF chemistry profes-
sor. "He took our most advanced gen-
eral chemistry course as a freshman and
walked right through it, no sweat."

Degree restrictions leave
rights of students behind
Imagine you are a high school student who had applied to
UF. After months of waiting and wondering if you'd
have to make that dark and shameful journey to our
northern rivals after all you finally get a response.
It's the thick packet, instead of the slim envelope that
screams "form letter," so you're understandably excited. You
open it up and, sure enough, it's an acceptance letter.
"Dear -Really Smart Student, we want to congratulate
After the pleasantries, however, there's a much more dis-
"Based on your skills and aptitudes, as well as our current
needs, your major will be: mechanical engineering."
You're confused because you've never been interested in
engineering in your life. But it's there in plain writing, along
with a disclaimer that you will forfeit all state scholarships if
you deviate from your given major.
As you happen to be president of the drama club with
your eyes on a dual theater/English degree, this doesn't
make you too happy.
The fact that you haven't cracked the "C" barrier in math
since you were counting monkeys and green apples in kin-
dergarten doesn't make you too optimistic either.
Sound crazy? It may be extreme, but it's a possibility if the
Board of Governors goes forward with its plans to require
state universities to meet degree quotas.
In case you missed the article in Friday's Alligator, the
board decreed that the State University System should be
graduating 50 percent of its students in nine areas of concen-
tration by the 2012-2013 academic year.
These nine areas not surprisingly are concentrated
in the competitive medical and technological fields, as well
Under this system, the other 200 degree programs at UF
would receive only the remaining 50 percent of these stu-
So what happens if students don't want to major in those
nine areas? One possibility is that the predicted major stu-
dents put down on college applications could be used as a
serious consideration of who to accept.
Another would be an actual regulation of who stays in
which major as described above, enforced by scholarship al-
location or other incentives to stay on university-approved
But wait, the board has an idea to help alleviate the prob-.
lem of universities not receiving enough students interested
in select areas: let individual universities spread the wealth.
Because the degree quota is statewide, rather than based
on the percentage of graduates from each university, the
state schools could agree to take on a heavier load of stu-
dents in areas in which they already have sufficient par-
ticipation. In return, other universities would pick up their
slack in areas for which they lacked interested students or
To put it bluntly, this cannot work. If the board wants to
institute programs that encourage high school students to
choose certain majors, fine. If they want to increase scholar-
ship awards to students in these areas, great.
But you try to tell the budding Joyce or Mozart that he or
she is going to spend the next four years in the computer lab,
like it or not.

Modest proposal fo
o what if the Board of Governors wants to institute
The Florida educational system is in shambles
these days, and we need something to shake it up.
Educators say we should increase funding and invest
in our children's futures, but when has throwing money
at a problem ever solved anything?
Under the harsh new degree regulations, universities
will have to get creative. They'll have to evolve if they
want to survive.
This will produce a stronger, leaner and, I posit,
more entertaining State University System.
I say this because I think this is a perfect time for
Florida universities to combine two of their favorite
things: the fight for the cream of the crop of our high
school students and the NFL draft that costs them so
many of their best athletes.
Throw those two things into the sociopolitical blend-
er and we get a new yearly event for the handicappers,
to handicap and the pundits to pund about: the Florida
It'd be simple: each university would get a certain
number of picks, depending on how many students
they could handle. :
They would use these to fill out academic areas they
were weak in. It'd be just like when the Buccaneers
decide they need a new quarterback and some line-
men, only now it'd be a special-ed teacher and some
What's to stop the top universities from dominat-
ing the draft with their extra picks? Easy: Institutions
would be ranked depending on how well they did in
last year's Quota Bowl.
Unfortunately, this means UF probably would spend
the first few years taking picks from the bottom and rid-
ing on their past successes, while FSU and UCF take all
of the top picks.
The views expressed here are not
r university system
But if parity works for the
NFL, it certainly could work for
the educational system.
The best thing about this is
that the different universities
will be forced to work together,

firstname.lastname@example.org UF doesn't want to give up
that computer whiz from Tampa
who already owns three software
companies? Okay,.but it's going to- cost them when
they're short two nursing students at the end of the
term and FSU won't settle for a couple of architects and
a second-round pick.
There will be setbacks, of course. We may see a univer-
sity going on probation after offering a plump scholar-
ship to a nationally ranked business student in exchange
for a conveniently timed switch over to medicine just
before a competitor could snatch him or her up.
And if the system really takes off, we'll have to deal
with schools padding their sports teams with awkward
honors kids so they could sneak a few' more in under
the degree cap.
But what's a little corruption on the glorious path
So, if you want to improve the educational system
from the ground up, don't put more money into the sys-
tem. That's just not good business, and it's not going to
make apathetic students care anyway.
Instead, court them with math groiupies, free

Letters to the Editor
The Alligator chooses design over content
Editor: Despite being aggressively mis-.
quoted by the Alligator in a story earlier this
semester, I did not write then to ask for cor-
rection or clarification. However, Monday's
story about the Gainesville Sun's effort to
move in on campus, get Student Government
money and produce a wraparound
features'n'news section gives the wrong im-
pression. You guys need to get it right.
The headline on the jump of the story on
page 9 says the journalism college "backs"
the Sun plan. Yet, our dean is not quoted in
the story, and I appear only in the last sen-
tence really a non-sentence, since it was
obviously cut to fit and ends with a comma.
The quote-out from me that decorates the
second part of the story does not appear in
I don't hold the reporter responsible. I
assume she accurately quoted me in a part
of the story that was cut. If it had been in-
cluded, it would have been clear that we
are skeptical about this wraparound section
seen as a possible competitor to the Alligator.
Competition is good. The Alligator needs
competition. But this project is apparently
driven by the Sun's circulation department,
not its news department. No one on. the
Sun news staff has contacted me about this.
If the newspaper plans to use our students
as unpaid interns, we need to approve this
project for those students to receive credit.
The Sun insists its interns earn credit, since it
doesn't pay them. For the record: We want
our students to have paid internships. (Since
professional work is expected of the student,
being treated like a professional is important.
Professionals get paid.)
For decades, the Sun and the journalism
program had a great relationship. Students
produced full sections -,later cut to single
pages for the Sun on a daily or twice-week-
ly schedule. The Sun ended that relationship
in the early '90s. We would welcome a good
working relationship with the Sun's news de-
partment. This project, however, seems like a
cynical effort to dine at the SG trough.
The errors in Monday's story and my
aggressive misquote in a story earlier this
year seem to be the result of poor editing,
of allowing design (stories that had to fit in
boxes drawn by page designers) to dictate
content. Try to get it right next time.
Professor and chair, Department of Journalism
Even Republicans say 'wars' are too much
Editor: As a conservative, I tend to cringe
every time I read Andrew Meyer's column.
His writings condemning the privatization
of Social Security are ignorant at best and
deceitful at worst. Last Friday's column
lambasting "big government" Republicans,
however, was dead on. The War oi Drugs,
the War to Save Baseball, the War to Save
Terri Schiavo and the most ambitious yet
- the War to Save the World from Tyranny
- are an embarrassment to the conservative
tradition of small, limited government.
To be fair, it should be pointed out that
the War to Save Baseball is being fought by a
bi-partisan army, not solely a Republican one;
marijuana arrests ballooned under President
Bill Clinton's Justice Department despite the
fact that college kids still think his admin-
istration was the "grooviest" yet; and Janet
Reno's travesties with Waco, Ruby Ridge and
Elian Gonzalez were more indicative of a po-
lice state than anything that has come to pass
under the Patriot Act.,
Still, with their own well-intentioned-but-
always-bungled "wars" to save humanity,
Republicans are trampling individual liber-
ties, flouting the Constitution and doing
as big a disservice to our founders who
considered government but a necessary evil,
as does the failed socialism of the Democrats'
Wars on Poverty and Unemployment.
The preceding letter from
Professor William McKeen
resulted after a production er-
ror caused Emily Yehle's story
"Sun seeks UF newspaper
deal" in Monday's Alligator
erroneously to contain dupli-
cate paragraphs and to omit
the concluding paragraphs.
The article, as it should
have appeared Monday, has
been reprinted on page 9 of
today's Alligator. ,
The Alligator staff certainly
did not intend this to happen.
We believe the complete
version of the article addresses
the concerns of the letter. For
example, Terry Hynes, dean of
the College of Journalism and
Communications, is quoted in
the full version.
Despite being apprised of
the error, McKeen stood by
his statements, including his
belief that the story and his
comments were cut to fit the
design of, the paper.

Bill may cover
By SKYLER SMITH
Florida patients faced with
inadequate funding for a life-
saving lung transplantat may
receive help from the Florida
Rep. Larry Cretul, R-Ocala,
State Bill 453, also
NeWS known as the
Josh Abbott Lung
Transplant Bill for a local boy
who inspired him to propose
it, in the Shands at UF atrium
The legislation would fund
the disparity in cost between
the price of a lung transplant
and Medicaid's current funding,
which stands at approximately
$227,000 per pediatric patient.
"Quite simply, this is a good
bill, and I'm sponsoring it be-
cause it will save additional
young lives and will allow these
young people, like Josh, to live a
longer, healthier and productive
life," Cretul said. "Josh and oth-
ers like him fight hard every day
with battles you and I can't even
imagine, and I found out there's
something I can do to help."
Abbott, 21, has cystic fibrosis
and is awaiting a double lung
At this time, transplant pa-
tients who cannot afford the full
cost of their treatment must fund-s
raise to cover the extra medical
costs associated with their care.
Shands at UF is the. only
plant center in Florida, Shands
spokesman Lance Skelly said.
According to Cretul's office,
$3.4 million is currently appro-
priated to fund the bill.
"I'm tickled to death that
there is money available," Cretul
said. "What we have to have to
hope and pray for are that there
will be donors."
Sen. Rod Smith, D-Gainesville,
is sponsoring a similar bill in the
Florida Senate. Cretul said he
hopes his bill passes before the
session ends May 6.

than $16,000 for its newspapers to

Body Treasurer Dennis Ngin,
have been in talks with the Sun to
distribute the paper throughout

For the Summer, the program
could cost students approximately
$4,000 for about 500 papers a day.
If the distribution is successful
during the Summer, SG officials
will consider a $12,500 program
for the Fall, where 1,250 papers a
day would be provided.
All the money would come
from SG's tuition-funded re-
Furthermore, SG and the Sun

Although the Sun has never

"The department has always
regretted that the Sun chose to

he wrote in an e-mail. "That's

"The more the merrier. I like to
see people reading newspapers,"
McKeen wrote. "Hell, I like to see
them reading anything. It's much
better than seeing them walking
around with cell phones held up
to their skulls."

doesn't mind being asked to help
out at another position.
"I'm just open; I just want to
play," Dickey said. "I've been
here three years, going on four,
and I just want to play anywhere
that I can."
Dickey played mostly in
mop-up situations last season.
Meyer said if Dickey can handle
the receiver position, it's a viable
"You saw what I saw in that
scrimmage I saw a good-look-
ing athlete running around, so
it doesn't do much good stand-
ing on the sideline," Meyer said.
"We'll probably have'a little pack-
age for him. If he can learn it all,
the one thing we've been known
for is that the best players touch
the ball. If he's one of our best
players, that could happen."
Dickey said going out and
actually playing receiver hasn't
been the smoothest transition,
but having seen the routes as a
"Running routes it's dif-
ferent, but I think I'll learn it,"
Dickey said. "Getting thrown
right in helps tremendously."
Tight end Dane Guthrie,
forced to redshirt last year be-
cause of injury, is having prob-
lems again. He sat out a couple
practices earlier this spring be-
fore returning, but didn't prac-
tice again on Wednesday.
"That darn hamstring it's
been hurt all last year, he's been
hurt all spring," Meyer said.
Wide receiver Mike
McIntosh spent practice in
"The Pit," which Meyer said is
actually worse than practice.
Safety Terrence Holmes joined
McIntosh in The Pit while wide
receiver Kenneth Tookes sat out
with a concussion.
Fans have come out in big
numbers at almost every prac-
tice UF has held this spring.
Even Meyer is surprised by
"I was at Notre Dame before
and it wasn't like this," he said.
It is .a more fan-friendly at-
mosphere this year: Meyer lets
fans sit, whereas Zook made ev-
eryone stand. Also, Zook often
practiced on the second field,
farther from fans.
"I appreciate them coming
out," Meyer said. "I try to do as
much [on the first field] as I can
to let them enjoy practice."
