POPE JOHN PAUL II 1920-2005


Reflecting on a legend

By LINDSAY TAULBEE
Alligator Writer
Itaulbee @ alligator.org

Since the death of Pope John Paul
II on Saturday, Gainesville residents
and students reflected on the life
and death of a "complex" man,
whom they say served as a leader
and lived as an example to others.
"He showed us how to live;
He showed us how to die," said
Kathleen Stopyra, former secre-
tary of the Catholic student group
Newman Club.
"His teachings affected my life.
He made you feel like you knew
him," she said, tearing up as she
spoke.
Sunday Mass at St. Augustine
Catholic Church, 1738W. University
Ave., was not much busier than
usual, a parish official said.
Memorial services for the pope
are planned for today and Tuesday.
Tonight's vigil begins at 8, and
Tuesday's 7:30 p.m. service, also at
St. Augustine, will commemorate
his life.
Larry Lataif, co-coordinator of
the Catholic Student Fellowship at
UF, said it was interesting to see the
impact the pontiff had on people
around the world.
He noted it was an "amazing
experience" to watch the news with
non-Catholic friends.
"They were admiring him as if
he were their leader," he said. "Even
though he was half a world away,
everyone knew who he was; every-
one knew his mission."
Lataif said he initially was sad-
dened by the news of the pope's
death, adding, "Because he was
such an amazing man, we do need
to be able to celebrate him too."
St. Augustine priest Tim Lozier
said John Paul's death brought "a
lot of sadness, a real sense of losing
a father."
Casey Anderson / Alligator Staff "When this happens it shows the

Marathon raises


record donations

By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer

Bodies collapsed to the floor of the Stephen C. O'Connell
Center as the 32-hour-long Dance Marathon came to a close
Sunday evening.
However, the 650 students who took part in the philan-
thropy event didn't stay seated long.
The entire arena erupted with cheers and tears when vol-
unteers announced a record-breaking $307,764
On was raised to benefit the Children's Miracle
Campus gNetwork and Shands Children's Hospital.
"It was pure pandemonium after we heard
$300,000 was broken," Dance Marathon public relations chair
Ashley Barwig said. "I was shocked."
Students stayed awake and standing for nearly a day and a
half straight, only allowed to sit down for bathroom breaks.
"You get the option to brush your teeth and shower, but I
decided not to do it," Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity mem-
ber Matt Pavese said, adding how dirty he felt from his lack
of hygiene.
The students joined together multiple times to perform a
choreographed dance they learned on Saturday.

UF ratings mixed


By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
smgarry@alligator.org

UF's education and engi-
neering schools led the uni-
versity in graduate programs,
both ranking 25th in the nation
in U.S. News & World Report's
annual guide to graduate
schools.
In the report released last
week, UF's business gradu-
ate program jumped 11 posi-
tions to No. 42 in the nation
this year, while the medical
school's research program slid
6 spots to No. 46.
Though the U.S. News
report is one measure of UF's
goal of moving into the Top
10 public research universi-
ties, many educators think
the criteria are arbitrary and


often-changing, causing the
results to change more than the
schools do.
Al Warrington, who serves
on UF's highest governing
body the Board of Trustees
- and for whom. the busi-
ness school
was named,
blamed arbi-
traiy criteria
for the wild
fluctuation
the business
school has
warrington seen in its
rankings
during the last few years.
Last year, the business
graduate program was No. 53
in the nation, a drop of 26 posi-
tions from the previous year.

Deaf sign their tales


By LINDSAY TAULBEE
Alligator Writer
Itaulbee@alligator.org

With precise gestures and
animated facial expressions,
Paul Jones barely stood still for'
more than a moment as he used
American Sign Language, or ASL,
to tell a tale about scuba diving.
Jones, who is deaf, kept the
audience in the Reitz Union
Grand Ballroom laughing as he
opened the Signing Gators' Deaf
Storytelling Festival on Saturday.
More than 100 attended the
event, including ASL students and
professors from several schools,
Gainesville residents who are deaf
and visitors from as far away as
Jacksonville and Winter Springs.
The six storytellers entertained
the audience with well-known
tales, such as "Hansel and Gretel,"
jokes and personal experiences
ranging from a hit-and-run crash
to traveling after retirement.
"It's a tradition," Signing Gators
president Joann Grages said. "It's
very popular in the deaf commu-
nity to have storytelling festivals."
The storytellers used both ASL
and English Sign Language, which
vary in vocabulary and structure.
Other storytellers included
Annie Pearl Murphy; husband-


and-wife Frank and Rita Slater;
and Stephen Hardy III and Darvin
Felicien, who stepped in after two
scheduled speakers were unable
to come.
Hardy is the former president
of the Florida Association of the
Deaf Inc.
"[The festival is] a big deal
for deaf people especially,
because that's how their
culture is passed down."
Sarah Overholser
Florida Community College at
Jacksonville student

Grages said to the best of her-
knowledge, a festival of this type
had not been held in Gainesville
before.
In the future, her group would
like-to host the festival semiannu-
ally, she said.
Florida Community College
at Jacksonville student Sarah
Overholser attended the festival
after learning about it from a pro-
fessor.
"It's a big deal for deaf people
especially," she said, "because
that's how their culture is passed
down."

Benefits are


needed for


UF equality
People take for granted what they
have, and the issue of domestic-
partner benefits is no exception.
Heterosexuals never even think
twice about whether or not they will be
insured or covered by their partner's
workplace. But same-sex couples do,
and all of these excuses about why
they should not have these benefits
just sounds like baloney. This issue of
domestic-partner benefits is not about
God, or Bibles; it's about equal rights
- and the-same excuses were used
when interracial marriages came into
question. But, in the end, ecual rights
prevailed as they should and they
will again. It is not anyone's place to
judge another's
Allison love for their
Andrews partner. And
Speaking Out in terms of
what state Rep.
Dennis Baxley,
R-Ocala, has been saying about homo-
sexuals not having monogamous rela-
tionships, I just have to wonder how
many homosexuals he knows.
Under current UF policy, if a profes-
sor is married and his or her spouse or
children get sick, their benefits cover
the medical bills. But if a professor is
in a same-sex relationship, the-partner
or children would not be covered no
matter if they have been together for
30 years. This kind of discrimination
is horrendous, and UF should offer the
same security for all of its employees.
I think most people don't realize
exactly what domestic-partner benefits
are. These benefits include medical
and dental insurance, disability and
life insurance, pension benefits, family
and bereavement leave, education and
tuition assistance, credit-union mem-
bership, relocation and travel expenses
and inclusion of partners in company
events. The Human Rights Campaign
has documented that the total number
of 'colleges, governments and private
corporations that offer domestic-part-
ner benefits is more than 2,500.

Benefits battle


Partner benefits are one


more step toward Top-10
In order to evaluate the issue of partner benefits for same-
sex UF faculty and staff, let's examine two scenarios in
which a prospective faculty member (PFM) attends job
interviews with UF and a competitor.
PFM: "How much does the job pay?"
UF: "About three-quarters of the national average."
PFM: "OK... how about benefits for my partner?"
UF: "How does 'none' sound to you?"
Needless to say, the PFM probably did not take the job.
A couple of days later, the PFM interviews with another up-
wardly mobile public institution (UMPI).
PFM: "How much does the job pay?"
UMPI: "A little more than the national average, plus good
bonus options."
PFM: "Great. What about partner benefits?"
UMPI: "We offer a comprehensive health care plan as well
as tuition discounts."
PFM: "Can I start tomorrow? I've got my stuff in a moving
van outside."
See how much better that went?
Unlike the majority of the theoretical scenarios the
Alligator editorial board uses to illustrate our points, this
one likely is all too close to reality.
UF will never realize its goals in its push for Top 10 public
research university status unless it makes an effort to attract
exceptional new faculty members.
In today's world, the homosexual/heterosexual ratio of
these exceptional faculty mgnbers increasingly-is moving
toward equilibrium.
UF, then, cannot hope to assemble a faculty of the best and
brightest regardless of race, gender and sexual orientation
- unless it provides competitive benefits for all.
If UF had particularly high salary rates for its faculty, per-
haps it could overcome this. But this simply is not the case.
Eight of the current Top 10 public universities (via U.S.
News & World Report) offer some form of partner benefits,
and there is a national movement toward the same includ-
ing some states in which it is a legal requirement. UF cannot
afford to lag behind in this issue-if it wants to move ahead.
That is not to say, however, that opponents do not have
valid concerns.
For instance, Florida doesn't recognize same-sex unions,
so there is no legal method by which a faculty or staff mem-
ber could claim a partner. Because of this, there must be a
system put into place that would discourage faculty and staff
from saying a recent boyfriend or girlfriend (or, possibly, just
a friend) is a "partner" in order to capitalize on this. '
One way would be to require a proof of residency. In that
case, those seeking benefits would produce documents from
both partners, such as bills and paychecks, which had been
sent to the same residence over a set period of time.
But these concerns should be ironed out in the develop-
ment of the system; they should not be reasons not to have
the system in the first place.
Probably the biggest hurdle UF will have to face in the
push for partner benefits is the Florida Legislature. It is no se-
cret that the Legislature tends to oppose anything that could
be considered recognition of same-sex marriages.
But the university should not be cowed by legislators.
Change sometimes requires that someone speak out first,
and who better to do so than an institution that prides itself
on furthering human intellectual progress?
UF cannot afford to tread water much less fall behind
in such pressing social issues if it is to become a top public
institution.

Be fair ban marriage for everybody


LAWRENCE, Kan. (U-WIRE)
here is a marriage fever .in America. Everybody
wants to get married.
T1 The mother asked the little girl, "What do you
want to do when you grow up?" And the little girl said,
"I want to get married."
This is the dream of girls in America. They go
through life waiting for the moment they are going to
get married.
Girls I have met here talk about marriage as if it were
necessary, as though marriage was something you have
to do at some point in life.
What they did not consider was that the possibility
of not getting married is not that bad.
Women have been fighting to be dissociated from the
marriage -instituttion and be seen as more independent
individuals since the '60s.
Many girls still think marriage is the commodity that
brings happiness.
Now even same-sex couples want to conform to the
traditional institution of marriage. While women are
fighting to be more independent, same-sex couples are
fighting to get married.
Marriage is not hip: Gay couples were hip because
they had non-stereotyped relationships that worked
better than the traditional- roles played by regular
couples.
They should not try to conform to old stereotypes,
like marriage. Marriage has failed in our society.
If same-sex couples realized what was involved in
marriage, they might not fight for it. People should be
careful in fighting for something that they could regret
later.
They should do some research on divorce rates in
America. According to the Divorce Reform Web site,
about 50 percent of marriages end in divorce.
I would say same-sex couples should be happy that
they are not allowed to get married. It is not a disadvan-


Julia tage it is a benefit.
Melim Coelho If women and men were not al-
U-Wire lowed to get married, they would
.a..e ..so uncu grue- o ......t mo..ey


save so much griner, so mucn money
in divorce paperwork and so much
hassle to split the assets.
Not to mention, the money the government would
save.
According to the same Web site, the United States
spends about $33.3 billion each year in divorces. All this
money could be used for education, health and Social
Security.
We should just stop the marriages to avoid the di-
vorces.
Same-sex couples could have the perfect formula of
happiness: Independent relationships without the com-
mitment of marriage. Now they are fighting to get what
has destroyed most relationships on earth: marriage.
In fact, nobody should be able to get married. On
April 5, when Kansas votes about the same-sex mar-
riage ban, they should include, "Marriage is the union
between one man and one woman, and it should never
be allowed in any circumstance because it is the greater
source of unhappiness in America these days."
Then I would vote for it. But banning marriage for
same-sex couples is not enough. They should ban it for
everybody.
If marriage is banned for everybody, when the moth-
er asked her daughter what she wanted to do when she
grows up, she would still say, "I want to get married."
But then, the mother would say, "I am sorry, darling,
but now marriage is illegal."
And then the girl would reply, "Oh, OK, then I will
go to law school." And then all couples could live hap-
pily ever after.

Letters to the Editor
Diversity shouldn't trump capability
Editor: Ayn Rand said, "There is a
great deal to be said about the horri-
fying approach of a world dominated
by people who prefer 'ascription' to
'achievement,' and who seek a physi-
ologically determined, automatically
given status rather than a status they
have to earn."
Equally "horrifying" is the idea that
a certain ascription means achievement.
President Machen suggests increasing
graduate student diversity implies in-
creasing UF's position among research
universities. While this may appear to
be true- and it might very well be true
- let the applicant's academic achieve-
ment prove that and not a checkbox
other than White/Caucasian. It's
insulting to everyone. For the "world-
class institution" Machen seeks, is there
a number that's "diverse enough?"
There's no gray area between ascrip-
tion and achievement. You can't have
both. And I ask the president, were uni-
versities created to mirror the world?
If so, I was mistaken in my decision
to attend a "world-class institution."

Students often need time to explore
Editor: Why should going beyond
four years for undergraduate studies
automatically be seen as a failure and a
reason for penalty?
When coming into college as a 17- or
18-year-old, it is tough to determine
what career path one wants to take for
the next 40 years of their life.
There are many students I. am sure
who did know the answer to that ques-
tion, but I am not one of them.
Even when you do decide on a
certain course, it may not be what
you expected, and you will switch
again. Or maybe you would like to add
a business minor to your workload. Or
maybe, in the end, you pick internships
and actual real-world experience over
taking classes in the summer.
Whatever the reason is for staying
longer than the customary four years,
consequent years should not be penal-.
ized.
Students still are paying tuition for
those so-called unnecessary classes
under Bright Futures or by their own
money because it is their right. I earned
my Bright Futures and have used it to
the maximum.


In fact, those unnecessary courses on
my transcript were very necessary for
me to determine what I really wanted
to do with my college education.
- Just because a student takes longer-
does not mean they should be penal-
ized for searching out their calling and
being ambitious in their career path.

Lawyer earned respect, not mockery
Editor: I, as much as anyone else,
can appreciate a good joke, but there
are times when respect and tact need to
be taken into consideration.
The caricature about John Cochran
printed in Wednesday's issue, of your
newspaper was inappropriate.
A man has just lost his life, and you
feel it is acceptable to make light of his
passing. Regardless of peoples' opin-
ions about his professional life, no one
can deny that he excelled in his field.
He should be honored and respected
for his achievements, not mocked.

ANDREWS, from page 5

Competitive benefits packages have become
extremely important in attracting the best em-
ployees. Companies that offer such benefits
usually have requirements for who can receive
them, such as: having lived together for a
specified period and being responsible for each
other's financial welfare, not blood relatives, at
least 18 years old, mentally competent and not
legally married. So, in terms of having to cover
300 partners, as Baxley assumes, it is not fea-
sible for all 300 to meet these requirements.
Undergraduate students at UF have partner
benefits in terms of healthcare and recreational
facilities, and they have had these benefits for
three or four years.. As a student who soon will
be attending graduate school, whether a uni-
versity offers partner benefits or allows same-
sex couples to live in family housing will be a
big factor in choosing where I will attend.
I know UF eventually will get domestic-
partner benefits, but how many prestigious
professors and graduate students will it miss
out on during the long wait before these ben-
efits are actually offered?
Allison Andrews is the president of Pride

dcohen@alligator.org
Location, location and .more
enforcement those are the main
concerns of Student Government's
no fewer than three separate groups
concerned with making parking
more convenient on UF's campus.
Student Body President Jamal
Sowell said SG is interested in conve-
nience and "something that can help
a specific area on campus" when de-
ciding where to construct two. new
parking garages within the next four
years called for in UF's master plan.
Sowell said the Student Traffic
Court, which is working with
Transportation and Parking Services
to find the most ideal location for the
project, is looking to construct one of
the garages near the .Levin College
of Law.
However, plans are far from be-
ing finalized.
Sowell said the bulk of the ex-
pense of the garages will be financed
by the Capital Improvement Trust
Fund, the account set aside for the
construction of non-academic stu-
dent facilities.
SG is looking into increasing
funding from other areas as well
through three committees that con-
centrate on parking.

100-million trees must be cut
down every year to help pro-
vide the paper for magazines,
catalogs and junk mail result-
ing in 40 million tons of paper
clogging the landfills each
year.
dunk mail is one of the most
difficult papers to recycle. It is
deeply inked and colored. The
process takes a large amount
of water and chemicals. The
slurry formed after this pro-
cess is nothing more that in-
dustrial waste.

The Student Traffic Court is "kept
abreast about all issues," Sowell
said, while the Transportation and
Parking Services Committee, which
is composed of administrators and
students, focuses on technical de-
tails.
The newly formed Senate Ad-
Hoc Parking Committee's job is to
submit suggestions to the Student
Senate and solicit student opinions
and suggestions.
"Our school does a very
good job of enforcing. I'm
not sure how much more
our school could enforce.
Of course, we always need
more parking."
Jamal Sowell
Student Body president

"[It's] just a committee to get
some information together," Sowell
said.
At the committee's second meet-
ing Thursday, it was suggested that
implementing stricter enforcement
of parking regulations, rather than
creating more spaces, would be the
best solution to solve the on-campus
parking problem. One idea was to
employ more officers.

However, Sowell, who was not
present at the meeting, does not
agree.
"Our school does a very good
job of enforcing," Sowell said. "I'm
not sure how much more our school
could enforce. Of course, we always
need more parking."
The Senate's infant committee
also had the idea of allowing stu-
dents one "free" parking ticket in,
other words, a first offense for violat-
ing on-campus parking restrictions
could be waived.
Sowell said the budget of
Transportation and Parking Services
should be investigated.
"That's how they generate rev-
enue," Sowell said. "Research has to
be done."
He also said he believes freshmen
should not be denied the option of
bringing their cars despite the over-
crowded situation.
"I don't think a school should
limit freshmen bringing cars," he
said, noting that some students
work all through high school to buy
a car and calling. the proposition
unfair.
Sowell admitted he gets parking
tickets every now and then.
"I have to struggle to find park-
ing like anybody else," Sowell said.
"I park somewhere different every
day"


Arts studio opens
By VALERIA LENTO
Alligator Contributing Writer
More than 100 students visited The Studio on the ground
floor of the Reitz Union during its grand opening Friday
Students explored their creativity through potato printing
and fish stamping, as well as painting pottery.
"We're doing demos of everything so people will know
what to do and expect when they come in," said student
manager Jennifer Klahm.
At The Studio, students can produce craft pieces from
earrings and tie-dyed shirts to frames and mugs
On at affordable prices and at their own pace.
CampuS The concept for The Studio, which serves as
a satellite to the Arts and Crafts Center located
in the basement of the Reitz, evolved last summer when mem-
bers from the center questioned what they could do to expand
their facility and bring in more students, Klahm explained.
Klahm said she believes The Studio will attract more
people due to its location.
The Studio, which is 100 percent student-run, is open to
the general public and will extend its hours, including week-
ends, during Fall, Klahm said.
Studio assistant Stephanie David said she loves her job.
Meeting people who share her passion for art or are begin-
ning to discover it is the thing she enjoys most.
"I think it's exciting to actually see people come in and
enjoyingit and wanting to come back," she said:
Sophomore Danielle Payne was drawn to the grand open-
ing by the free food offered but said she will return.
"I'm going to spend all my money over here," she said.
"I'm going to be broke."

Students remember Pope John Paul II as forgiving, a great leader


POPE, from page 1


Savio Pinto, an economics junior who attended the 5:30 p.m.
service at St. Augustine, expressed similar sentiments.
"He lived by example and through his action," he said.
"If he can forgive someone who tried to assassinate him,
then we should be able to forgive our neighbors for the
little things," he said, referring to a 1981 assassination attempt
against the pope in St. Peter's Square.
Adrian Gonzalez, a political science freshman, said that al-
though John Paul's death would have little impact on his day-to-
day life, that was a testament to the success of the institution.


"It will keep going no matter what," he said.
The Rev. Guy Noonan, also of St- .\ugus.nc Catholic
Church, said his leader's death brought mixed feelings.
"I felt sad because a very important man had left the scene.
I felt relieved that he was relieved from suffering. I felt very
much awed and grateful that he was willing to let his ministry
as a teacher of values go up to his very last moments," he said.
Noonan likened the pope's death to an empty chair at the
head of a dining table. He noted that in the church, a chair sits
with a black cloth to signify the lack of leadership.
"So the chair needs to be filled again," he said.
Noonan also commented on the pope's proclivity to use me-


dia to his advantage, to access the world and to be accessible.
"I share with those that say he will go down in history as
John Paul the Great," he said.
The Pope was not perfect; because no one is, but that "he
was right up there with the best of them," Noonan said.
"I think I would say he was a complex Pope," he said, noting
John Paul was a diplomat, an athlete, a philosopher, a playwright
and spoke several languages fluently, among other things.
"He was a man of many, many currents and cross-currents,
and all of that makes up the complexity of this man," he said.

SANTA FE COMMUNITY COLLEGE

Arts festival presents colorful variety, draws crowds


By SKYLER SMITH
Alligator Writer
ssmith@alligator.org

Dianne Hall has fond memo-
ries of the Spring Arts Festival.
"My husband proposed to me
here in 1988," the Gainesville resi-
dent said. This, and the friends
she has made keep her coming
back year after year.
"I like that there are a lot of
new artists this year. And some of
them are fabulous," she said.
Hall was among the thou-
sands of visitors to the 36th an-
nual Spring Arts Festival that
commandeered several blocks of
downtown Gainesville with art-
ists' tents, food vendors and live
performances.


The festival, which took
place Saturday and Sunday,
was co-sponsored by Santa Fe
Community College and the City
of Gainesville. It drew approxi-
mately 250 artists.
While many were from Florida,
artists journeyed from as far away
as California and Canada to dis-
play and sell their wares at the
outdoor festival.
One local artist showing
her paintings was Julissa Mora
Hernandez.
A Miami native who now
works as a graphic designer for
UF, Hernandez's paintings high-
light women and use colorful,
rough strokes of paint.
"I like to tell a story through
their faces," she said.


This was Hernrandez's first
time participating in the festival.
"I think that Gainesville has
a very educated art crowd. They
know what they like," she said.
"I look for artists that have
found their voice. I'm much-
more interested in them
telling me about their ex-
periences, not what's new
and fashionable."
Jack King
sculptor and University of Tampa
professor


In addition to paintings of
virtually any composition, subject
and style from abstract to land-

scapes and pop art, the festival
also had booths featuring photog-
raphy, jewelry and sculptures of
wood, stone, iron, clay and glass.
Accessories such as cashmere
scarves and handmade leather
bags and belts were also among
festival finds.
Prizes given out by festival
juries totaled $16,500 within two
broad categories of two-dimen-
sional and three-dimensional art,
with best in show in each category
receiving $1,500 each.
The winners in this year's arts
festival were Ummarid Eitharong
from Orlando in the 2D mixed
media category and John Tilton of
Alachua, whose ceramics won the
overall 3D category.
Jack King was the judge for the
3D portion of the festival.
"I look for artists that have
found their voice," said King,
a sculptor and professor at the
University of Tampa.
"I'm much more interested
in them telling me about their
experiences, not what's new and
fashionable."
King said that is where artists
find themselves in a dilemma be-
cause the new and fashionable art
is what sells.
"The general public has no
idea ,of what these artists go
through to do these shows. It's a
time, energy and money commit-
ment," he said.
He said this conundrum, and
the general atmosphere of an
outdoor show with few serious
customers, can be a hindrance to
artists.
However, King said he judges
three or four shows annually and
that this show is one of the best
organized and attended.
"There are some extremely
good artists in this show," he
said.

the Kids Art Jungle took over
the usually serene lawns with
music, young artists and cavort-
ing children enjoying the sunny
weather.
One of the youngest artists
showcasing her work was 11-
year-old Francine Schulze. Along
with her mother, Johanna Weiss,
Schulze spent the weekend selling
handmade jewelry.
This was Schulze's sixth time
working at the festival. She can
sew, knit and cook and sells her
wares at two stores in Alachua
and Gainesville.
"It's fun to just sit here and
watch people," said the sixth
grader on why she returns to the
festival every year.
Last year, the festival attracted
130,000 visitors and brought an
estimated $9 million of tourist
revenue to Gainesville, according
to a press release.

Women in science


share experiences


By ROBIN MCNICOL
Alligator Contributing Writer

When Thea Edwards goes
out on a boat, all she wants
to do is lean over the side and
grab an alligator out of the
water. But there are obstacles
in her way, and it's not just a
mouth full of sharp teeth.
"You can't drive the airboat
because you're a girl," she
explained about the unspoken
rules in her particular lab. As
the only female in her field of
study at UF comparative
reproduction within zool-
ogy Edwards has to fight to
prove herself worthy of doing
the "fun stuff," such as catch-
ing specimen to study in her
lab. Edwards, along with three
other accomplished women
in science, spoke Saturday to
a group of about 25 female
students at the Undergraduate
Women in Science Symposium
in Leigh Hall.
Zoology professor Marta
Wayne also specializes in
women's studies and teaches a
class about genes and gender.
She talked about an experience
in graduate school in which
she had to deal with sexual
harassment from a male co-
worker in her laboratory.
"I chose to deal with it
internally rather than file a
complaint, and he basically
snubbed me for the next two
years," she said.
All four women empha-
sized the importance of devel-
oping a support system.
"Finding that network of
women who are similar in the
last few years has made all
the difference," said Mickey
Schafer, who works at the


Center for Written and Oral
Communication.
When asked about the
"glass ceiling," a metaphor for
an invisible barrier that seems
to prevent women from enter-
ing the highest-paid positions
in many fields, all four women
agreed that it was a problem.
Wayne, who worked in
an all-male lab during her
graduate work, said she was
upset when she found out
the men in her lab had held a
discussion about whether they
would date her.
"Finding that network
of women who are
similar in the last few
years has made all the
difference."

"Graduate school is not
a sex bazaar," she said, add-
ing that while not everyone
agreed with her, she felt
affirmative action helped
women break through the
ceiling.
Kaitlin Kovacs, the
president of Undergraduate
Womern in Science, said she
felt the symposium was im-
portant for women to get an
idea of what the world was
like outside of school.
"The whole idea was to
promote women in science,
so we thought if we brought
women from the science
world and from the univer-
sity, then people would get
to see what it's really like,"
Kovacs said.


'Miracle families' tell stories to participants

DANCE, from page 1


Case) Anderson. Alligator Staff
Sisters of Sigma Phi Lambda Sorority play with an inflated ball
during Dance Marathon in the O'Dome on Sunday.


"Whenever the music
starts playing, everyone starts
screaming and running towards
the middle. It's the best part,"
Delta Delta Delta Sorority mem-
ber Brenna Baker said.
Participants were also able to
see the benefits of their efforts
as "Miracle Families," who'd
been impacted by the fundrais-
ing, told their stories.
Shannon Corning, a member
of Pi Beta Phi, was participating
in her fourth consecutive mara-
thon and said seeing the fami-
lies has kept her coming back.
"You get to meet the kids and
their families, and you get to
see what impact it has on their
lives," Corning said.
"I'm tired, but it's nothing
compared to what these kids go
through."
The several UF organizations
taking part in Dance Marathon
competed to see who could
raise the most money.
The winners were Kappa
Delta Sorority and Kappa
Sigma Fraternity. Both raised
over $50,000 for the cause and
took home the Miracle Cup
trophy.


UF ranks higher for most graduate programs


US NEWS, from page 1


up, but we could move down tomorrow," Warrington
said.
The U.S. News rankings hinge on. a few criteria
that hurt UF, including the average salary of gradu-
ates, which is lower in the South, and the number of
graduates who have jobs at the time of graduation,
Warrington said.
He noted that UF's business-school fares much bet-
ter in rankings by business publications such as The
Economist and the Financial Times.
UF suffers in competition with other schools be-
cause it doesn't offer its graduate students tuition
waivers or in-state tuition, but UF is working to change


that, Warrington said.
In addition, UF's out-of-state tuition is inordinately
high because the Florida Legislature has given the uni-
versity more leeway in charging nonresidents.
UF's medical school, for example, charges about
$10,000 more in out-of-state tuition than Harvard
University, the No. 1. ranked program.
The medical school's rankings are not quite com-
parable to last year's, after U.S. News introduced new
criteria into the 2005 survey.
But UF officials already have pointed out that the
medical school's nearly $47,000 annual tuition for out-
of-state students is keeping it from competing with
other schools for the best students in the nation.
UF's Levin College of Law moved up two slots in
the rankings to No. 41.

UFROUNDUP

Relay team hits world's third-fastest time in 2005


UF's 4x100-meter relay team of
freshman Richard Adu-Bobie, soph-
omores Mike Morrison and Kerron
Clement and senior Kyle Farmer
posted the third-fastest time in the
world in 2005 and the ninth-best
time in UF history Saturday.
The team dodged frigid tempera-
tures and snow flurries in Atlanta to
clock a winning time of 39.22 sec-
onds. The time earned the foursome
a trip to the NCAA East Regional.
Freshman Bernard Middleton also
fared well on the afternoon as he
posted a regional time of 47.07 sec-
onds to finish third in the 400 dash.
The Gators will next travel to the
prestigious Texas Relays in Austin
April 7-9.
Five UF women's pole vault-
ers traveled to Tampa on Friday to
compete in the USF Invitational.
Though none reached an NCAA
regional qualifying mark, juniors
Dara Altman and Amy Carr led
the group by posting a season-best
mark of 3.66 meters. Senior Chandra
Lacombe, sophomore Dana Van
Wagner and freshman Natalie
Moser each finished Friday at 3.50
meters.

MEN'S AND WOMEN'S SWIMMING:
Currently the Gators only have
two Olympic swimmers.
However, after this week's world
trials more will at least have the
chance.
Friday night junior Olympic gold
and silver medalist Ryan Lochte
won the 400-yard Individual Medley
by one hundredth of a second.

he did not win, Lochte came in
fourth in the 200 freestyle, racing
against former Olympic teammate
Michael Phelps.
Also on Saturday, junior Brian
Hartley will join Lochte at the 2008
Olympic Trials in the 200 freestyle.
Hartley was not the only Gator to
qualify Saturday; Joining him was
sophomore Leah Retrum and fresh-
men Caroline Burckle, still fresh
off her impressive performance
in the Southeastern Conference
Championship, qualified for 2008
as well in the 200 free. Burckle
finished fourth~
and Retrum eigh-
teenth.
Retrum was
not done for
the weekend,
though, as she
finished eighth
Lochte in the 400 IM
on Sunday and
qualified to have another shot at
Bejing in 2008. Senior Katie McCann
also posted a 2008 Olympic trial
time in the 400 IM.
The world trials will continue to
run through April 6.

STAFF REPORT

WOMEN'S TENNIS: There's a certain
thrill involved with Southeastern
Conference play; an excitement
about taking on your rivals. The UF
women's tennis team understands
both, especially after Friday.
The Gators upset No. 3 Georgia
on the Bulldogs' turf, handing

Georgia its first SEC loss of the year.
"Georgia began the match firing
on all cylinders and outplayed us in.
doubles," Thomqvist said. "But we
did an unbelievable job of compet-
ing in singles."
UF trailed the Bulldogs 3-2 be-
fore rebounding to win the match
4-3, giving the No. 9 Gators their
fifth consecutive victory. Juniors
Boglarka Berecz and Jennifer
Magley, senior Zerene Reyes and
sophomore Nina Suvak all posted
singles wins for the Gators.
"There's a point in every season
when you have to put up or shut
up, and today we came together and
showed what we have," Thornqvist
said. "It was a gritty performance
and I'm so proud of the team."
With their spirits high, the Gators
topped another SEC rival Sunday,
defeating No. 25 Tennessee 5-2.

KATE CAVANNA

MEN'S TENNIS: As the players
walked off the court, their smiles
reflected the scoreboard and the
kind of weekend it had been.
After a rain-postponed game
Friday that concluded in little more
than an hour on Saturday and an-
other match on a flawless Sunday
afternoon, the UF men's tennis team
finished up their home season 8-0 in
the Southeastern Conference and on
a 10-game winning streak.
"This has been one of my favorite
days at Florida," men's tennis coach
Andy Jackson said. "We beat a re-
ally good Georgia team in a tough

SOFTBALL: The No. 13 UF softball
team (29-10, 8-4 Southeastern
Conference) traveled to Athens,
Ga., this weekend expecting a
tough test against No. 12 Georgia.
What they probably didn't ac-
count for, however, was the Georgia
weather.

For complete stories, log on to
www.alligatorSports.org

Facing cool temperatures and
strong winds, the Gators lost two
of three games to the Bulldogs (33-8,
14-1 SEC). They also suffered their
worst defeat of the season, 12-4, in
the series' opening game.
The Gators rebounded and won
the second game 3-2 on a late-inning
rally, snapping the Bulldogs' win
streak at 20 games, but fell in the

WOMEN'S GOLF: Duke may have
topped both leaderboards after
54 holes, but Mother Nature was
the ultimate winner after the fi-
nal round at the .Bryan National
Collegiate.
With wind gusts reaching 40
miles per hour, no team broke 300 on


Sunday. The UF women's golf team
carded a 313 (+25), good enough to
finish fourth for that day.
Duke (+19) outlasted a strong
field at the Champions Course at
Bryan Park in Browns Summit, N.C.
"We shot a 313 today, and that
was really good considering the
tough conditions we played in,"
women's golf coach Jill Briles-
Hinton said. -

MEN'S GOLF: The UF men's golf
team has placed winning in its
rear-view mirror.
While the Gators finished second
and third in Puerto Rico and Las
Vegas, first place faded farther into
the distance. UF had to settle for
tenth place at the Schenkel E-Z-GO
Invitational two weeks ago, its sec-
ond-lowest result of the year.
As the Gators brace for the first
round of today's Morris Williams
Intercollegiate, one golfer is using
the Schenkel to assess the team's
problems.
"That's just the nature of the
game," said James Vargas, who
paced UF with a tie for 17th at the
Schenkel. "You can't really play well
every week. It's kind of disappoint-
ing to finish that poorly, but that's
going to happen."
UF better improve quickly. The
Morris Williams, hosted by Texas at
the Austin Country, Club, serves as
UF's final postseason tune-up.
"Certainly we would like to go
into the conference tournament on a
positive note," Alexander said.

to UF, said he is still adjusting to
the speed of the college ,game, but
added, "that's how it is for every 17-
year-old freshman quarterback."
Meyer, though impressed with
Portis' performance, is far from
ready to hand the second-string job
to a freshman.
Gavin Dickey and Cornelius
Ingram continue to show strides as
well, Meyer said.
"[Portis] is talented with the ball
in his hands, but he still plays like
he's 17 years old at times," Meyer
said. "We don't have a backup quar-
terback right now. What we do is we
have three. A lot of people wish they
had three, so we'll be OK."

It wasn't always pretty.
It was rainy and windy, and at
times, the opposition seemed to
give the game away.
But, the UF baseball team will
take its three-game sweep against
Kentucky (14-12, 0-8 Southeastern
Conference), capped by an 11-6 vic-
tory Sunday afternoon.
The No. 7 Gators (23-7, 6-3 SEC)
are now tied for first place in the
SEC after three weeks of play, with
updated national rankings due
today.
Senior center fielder Jeff
Corsaletti continued his offensive
onslaught, driving in the run. to
boost the Gators ahead on Sunday.
Corsaletti batted 7 for 14 with a
home run and seven RBI in the se-
ries. Corsaletti, however, preferred
to credit teammates like redshirt
freshman Brandon McArthur,
who hit his first career home run
Sunday.
"Guys executed when they
needed to," Corsaletti said.
"[Brandon] McArthur really set
the tone, hitting the home run to
tie it up. He's getting his wheels
turning."
McArthur missed all of last sea-

his time at UF. He pleaded no contest in June 2003 to a
simple battery charge involving a female UF student.
He was arrested in July after allegedly throwing a keg
on a student's face.
The thing is, Charles was not found guilty of the
keg-tossing. I always learned that in the great country
we live in, one is innocent until proven guilty.
For some reason, this doesn't apply to Foley and
the Gators. With no proof, it's ridiculous that Charles
got kicked off the team.
In his time at UF, Charles was a student-athlete;
the "student" part being a point that needs to be
made. The point of college is to learn not just what
one learns in class but to learn about life.
Charles learned from this. Foley didn't care.
In Foley's statement, he said, "We wish Taurean
the best of luck in the future." That couldn't be further
from the truth.

"I've just been seeing it well
lately, relaxing and not worrying
about the last at-bat or the future,"
McArthur said. "When you strug-
gle, you let it go, you don't think
about it. You don't want to think
about what would have happened
if you did it differently." I

- "The beginning of the season,

- nervousness and stuff like that,"
McArthur said. "Before, everything
seemed like it was moving like

The Gators won the resumed game
Saturday 10-9 on a wild pitch in
the bottom of the ninth inning.
Saturday's regularly-scheduled
game became a slugfest, with UF
winning 20-11.


It's clear that they don't care about his future.
Otherwise they'd let him stay, get his education and
hopefully make something out of his life. Instead of
helping Charles, they kicked him to the curb.
It also doesn't make sense that Foley decided this
without talking to Coach Urban Meyer about it.
Just look at how Meyer handled a player in
trouble when he was at Utah. Meyer kicked running
back Marty Johnson off the team after Johnson was
arrested twice for driving under the influence.
But Meyer decided to help him, unlike Foley with
Charles. Meyer made a program for Johnson to get
his life together. Johnson did everything Meyer told
him to, got his life back to normal, and made it back
onto the Utah team. More importantly, Johnson
earned a degree.
Why couldn't Charles be the same way?
A member of the University Athletic Association
said there aren't enough positive stories written.
This one could've been, but Foley wouldn't let that
happen.

Meyer: Second-string offense still needs work


By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
aabramson@alligator.org

Urban Meyer needs a backup
quarterback, a second-string of-
fensive line and a better under-
standing of his offense.
What Meyer doesn't need is a
team curfew.
So, while the Gators didn't
exactly appear ready for prime-
time in Saturday's scrimmage,
at least they were.hangover-free.
Meyer called a meeting at 7:30
a.m. Saturday.
"We're putting them through
mind tests and they passed the
first one," Meyer said. "They
weren't out Friday night in
Gainesville that's a good-
start."
But showing up and-stepping
up are two completely different
beasts. For Meyer, the Gators need
plenty of work on the latter.
"The execution was poor,"
Meyer said. "Our backup offen-
sive line I'd choose a lot of high
school offensive lines over that.
We're just not very good.
"Our first-string on both sides
are playing pretty good right
now."
Starting quarterback Chris
Leak went 5-of-7 for 80 yards,
and junior receiver Chad Jackson
caught four passes for 67 yards.


The defense had no problem
making its presence felt. On
one drive, Leak was "sacked"
three consecutive times once
by sophomore Brandon Siler
and twice by redshirt freshman
Derrick Harvey, who suddenly
looks like a contender for playing
time. The sacks, of course, were
mere touches. Leak, wearing a red
jersey, gets the
luxury of going
through scrim-
mages tackle-
free.
Three quar-
terbacks,-minus
the red jerseys,
continue to vie
Meyerfor the rights to
back up Leak and none impressed
in the scrimmage, though Meyer
put much of the blame on the
line.
But one surprising candidate
might get a hard look from Meyer
for the No. 2 job.
When the official scrimmage
ended and the Gators went to
situational practices, Josh Portis
came out of his shell and into the
spotlight.
Portis went 3-of-3 for 24 yards
in the scrimmage, but afterward
he began to show his running
ability and breakaway speed.
Portis shook off an interception

Top prospect checks out UF


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer

Chuckling and smiling all the while, quarter-
back Tim Tebow seemed perfectly comfortable
with his settings Saturday.
Tebow, a highly-respected Nease High pros-
pect from St. Augustine, spent his morning tak-
ing in UF's scrimmage. Afterward, he spent close
to 15 minutes talking football, baseball and life
with UF quarterbacks coach Dan Mullen.
"He's a really cool coach," Tebow said. "He's
done a good job with the quarterbacks here." ,
The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Tebow has received
more than 40 offers from colleges, but the soon-
to-be senior has publiclylisted the Gators as one
of his top-10 favorites.
"It's definitely a great offense, because it lets
the quarterback run," Tebow said. "They're going
to do a lot of great things here, and they've got a
lot of athletic quarterbacks."
Tebow definitely knows about athleticism.
-Last season, the left-handed junior threw for
4,286 yards and 46 touchdowns while rushing for


1,266 yards and 24 touchdowns. Those numbers
were good enough to break the*state of Florida's
total-offense, single-season passing and total-
touchdown records.
"[Mullen]'s a really cool coach. He's
done a good job with the quarter-
backs here."
Tim Tebow
high school quarterback

Most recruiting services have yet to rank the
2006 prospects, but he will likely crack the top-10
of most quarterback lists.
Tebow's skill-set would fit perfectly with
Urban Meyer's spread offense. The prospect,
who has also listed Clemson, South Carolina,
Michigan, Alabama, Nebraska, Florida State and
Georgia as favorites, would prefer to sign with a
school that uses a versatile offense.
"I think it makes a little bit of a difference be-
cause I want ti- try and use my athletic ability and
make a pla s.," Teb,x. said. "[If I can go some-
where where] I can do that it'll be a plus."
