Legislature vying for
power to set tuition
By JAMES VANLANDINGHAM
Alligator Staff Writer
TALLAHASSEE The Senate Education Committee
on Tuesday unanimously approved a House proposal de-
signed to define governance over the state's universities.
House Bill 1001 and its Senate companion, 1920, de-
fine which powers belong to the Legislature and which
belong to the Board of Governors.
The bill clarifies that the BOG has a constitutional
duty "to operate, regulate, control and be fully respon-
sible for the management of the whole publicly funded
State University System."
Among other duties, the Governors will define the
mission and strategic plan of each university, approve all
degree programs, set enrollment levels for each univer-
sity and negotiate with faculty for bargaining purposes.
The BOG also would be able to delegate some respon-
sibilities to university boards of trustees.
Conversely, the Legislature would set tuition,.fees and
financial aid policies, as well as the total budget for the
State University System and require universities to par-
ticipate in state retirement and benefits programs.
The only new wrinkle in the Senate
version of the bill is a measure ban-
ning lobbyists from serving on the
BOG or as university trustees.
The measure empowers the BOG
to use more authority than it has
previously exercised. But it still falls
short in the eyes of former UF Interim
York President E.T. York, who filed suit in
Tallahassee last December.
In suing, York sought a declaratory judgment that the
BOG, among other duties, should have the power to set
tuition and fees for each university.
"The BOG has the authority to set tuition under the
state constitution," he said Tuesday. "The BOG can make
a more rational decision on tuition than the legislature, but
more importantly, it has the constitutional duty to do so."
Bill sponsor Rep. Dudley Goodlette, R-Naples, dis-
agreed with York's assertion.
The constitution and its separation of powers grant
the Legislature power of the purse, he said.
Moreover, legislators are responsible for funding
Bright Futures and the Prepaid College Plan, costs of
which would skyrocket if universities had power to raise
tuition by double-digit percentages each year.
Making matters more complicated, universities in-
cluding UF argue they should have power to set tuition.

UF President Bernie Machen addresses the Alachua County Medical Society on Tuesday night. "The manner in which
alcohol is used, and sometimes abused, in this community is a serious problem," he said.
Machen pushes alcohol moderation
By EMILY YEHLE
While they're welcome to open a cold
beer in their homes, Gainesville residents
will no longer be encouraged to do so
through TV alcohol advertisements dur-
ing UF sporting events.
UF President Bernie Machen took
another step toward changing the univer-
sity's drinking culture by joining the na-
tional Campaign for Alcohol-Free Sports
TV, a coalition of more than 200 colleges
pledging to break the connection between
sports and alcohol.
UF is the first major, public univer-
sity in Florida and the Southeastern
Conference to do so, Machen boasted.
He announced the move at a Tuesday
meeting of the Alachua County Medical
Society. Physicians, he said, see the prob-

UF students of all majors will have a more intimate graduation
this year, but unlike past years colleges will pay for the privilege.
UF's swelling enrollment forced university officials to split
the once-unified graduation ceremony into separate events for
some of the larger colleges, beginning in 2002. Starting this year,
however, all colleges will be in charge of organizing the ceremo-
nies, including responsibility for costs UF paid in prior years.
Holding a graduation ceremony involves a lot of behind-the-
scenes planning and expenses, including renting a venue, print-
ing programs, and paying for staff, said Allyson Beutke.
As the publications coordinator for the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences, the largest of UF's 17 colleges, Beutke ar-
ranges the programs for the college's undergraduate and

Studios keep close theaters from showing same films
* GAINESVILLE'S TWO MAJOR THE-
ATERS SHOW DIFFERENT MOVIES.
By DAVID COHEN
A movie studio-established three-mile
guideline is responsible for the monopoly
Gainesville's two major theaters have on cer-
tain films, a local theater manager said. -
The venues, Royal Park Stadium 16 Theater
and Regal Butler Plaza Cinemas, do not show
the same films.
"The film studios decide on a policy, as far
as I understand it, that theaters within three
miles of each other can't play the same titles,"
said John Carpenter, manager of Royal Park
Theater on University Avenue and Southwest
"We're two-and-a-half miles apart," he
said, referring to Regal's Butler Plaza location.
"It makes our business harder to run."
Jan Black, marketing director for Eastern
Federal Theaters, which owns the Royal Park
location, said rival Regal Entertainment Group
has the power to share the movies it receives
with Eastern Federal Theaters, but does not.
Calls to Regal Entertainment Group's cor-
porate offices were not returned,
However, each is still in the dark about
whether one of the -biggest blockbusters of
the summer, "Star Wars Episode 1I: Revenge
of the Sith," will be coming to its silver screens
because of the theaters' proximity.
Carpenter said he hopes his theater gets the

new "Star Wars" flick.
"I can't wait," he said. "But we don't know
who has it yet."
However, Gator Cinemas, a small inde-
pendently owned theater near the Oaks Mall,
is free to choose from the Hollywood A-list
lineup without restrictions.
Theaters do not control which movies they
get to show studios do, Carpenter said.
"In theory the studios are supposed to be
fair," Carpenter said. "[The situation] is kind
of in the studios' best interest because it keeps
the old movies on the screen longer."
However, despite the uncertainty sur-
rounding the new "Star Wars" film that, ac-
cording to officials at both theaters, will last
for about another week, Regal's Butler Plaza
location has posted advertisements in its the-
aters for the science fiction film.
Carpenter insists the theaters do not en-
gage in bidding wars to compete for the next
"I think it's a common misconception from
some people," he said.
But Black said her company and Regal
Entertainment Group are engaged in a sort of
"They're a large circuit and we're not," she
said. "It's a matter of size."
Eastern Federal Theaters owns 23 theaters
across three states, while Regal Entertainment
Group maintains 563 locations throughout 40
Black said there are numerous markets
where the three-mile rule doesn't apply. She
said that if the studios would disregard the
distance constraint, consumers would be
"Florida areas are more competitive. They
.seem to stick to those rules. The studios and
the consumers would be the big winners,"
Black said. "We can't make sense of it."
She said she did not know the specifics of
why Florida's market is more contested.
Gator Cinemas is free from the static caused
by intense studio involvement, Assistant
Manager Abhilash Trehan said.

said. "It's just between the two major movie

Reflecting a shift in program-
ming and the desire for a director
of Asian-American Affairs at UF,
the Asian Student Union voted to
officially change its name to the
Asian-American Student Union.
Exactly two-thirds of the 60
delegates voted to enact the
name change at an April 4 ASU
meeting, President Mark Villegas
A two-thirds vote is the
minimum requirement to pass an
amendment under ASU's consti-
"I think all of the change is
reflective of the different stuff
we've been doing and our desire
to get an Asian-American Affairs
director," he said. -,
In the past few years, the
group's educational program-
ming has dealt mainly with
Asian-American issues, Villegas
Also, in 2004, UF agreed to
create an Asian-American Studies
certificate, a program that was
implemented at the beginning of
He said he believed both these
facts may have played into the
Ten representatives from each
of the five organizations under
ASU, plus an additional 10 from
ASU itself, were eligible to vote.
Delegates were informed two
weeks prior to the meeting that
the issue would be voted on,
though the proposal has been
discussed informally for more
than a year, Villegas said.
"I think all of the change is
reflective of the different,
stuff we've been doing and
our desire to get an Asian-
American Affairs director."

ASU will not officially ap-
ply for the change until August,
when all student groups must
re-register with the Student
Activities Center anyway.
At that time, the group will
register under the new name,
pending approval from the direc-
'tor of Student Activities and vice
president of Student Affairs.
Jen Counts, a program as-
sistant for the Student Activities
Center, said the proposed switch
will have to meet several require-
ments before approval.
"We require that they submit
a constitution that reflects the
name change," she said.
Additionally, groups may not
include "UF" or "University of
Florida" in their name, as it may
imply official university endorse-
"It's fairly straightforward,"
Villegas said he realizes stu-
dents who identify more with the
term "Asian" may feel excluded
by the new terminology.
"That's always a risk. That's
a risk we have considered," he
He noted, however, that the
same problem is posed in using
the current name, adding, "The
majority of people in ASU iden-
tify with 'Asian-American.'"
Villegas said any property
With the ASU name on it will not
be discarded, as the change is not
so drastic as to cause confusion.
"The stuff we have now is still
usable," he said.
The organization origi-
nally was part of Volunteers for

It took on the name Asian

RIAA access to Internet2
could spell future trouble
Increasingly restrictive legislation sought by the govern-
ment and intellectual property organizations already has
led to visions of a "Big Brother" future, and the Recording
Industry Association of America wants to make it clear that
no one is safe.
Striking a blow for pampered corporate executives the
world over, the RIAA plans to file lawsuits against students
who have been using the new Internet2 allegedly to trade
copyrighted material music and movies.
Internet2 is a network used by researchers at universi-
ties all across the world to explore the future of the Internet
and it just happens to be exponentially faster than tradi-
As expected, ultra-fast Internet access plus college stu-
dents has equaled a certain amount of illegal file sharing.
Of course, these students are a microscopic fraction of
the huge number of Internet users who share files, and the
files they share are a raindrop next to the vast ocean of illegal
Internet2 is a-new -frontier in the-digital age, however, and
the .RIAA is making sure that it will be the first to set foot
upon virgin soil and plant the first giant WARNING sign.
Cary Sherman, president of the RIAA, wants to send a
message that Internet2 isn't "a zone of lawlessness where
the normal rules don't apply," according to the Associated
But file-sharing surveillance, apparently, should be a zone
of conduct in which normal rules don't apply.
Access to Internet2, as could be expected of any experi-
mental technology, is restricted.
Doug Van Houweling, Internet2's chief executive; told the
Associated Press that no special access has been provided to
the RIAA for it to gather information for these lawsuits.
So how did the RIAA find out exactly who had been shar-
ing what, when there theoretically is no way for it to access
As of yet, the RIAA officially has declined to reveal what
measures it took to acquire this information, saying only that
there was no unlawful action involved.
Let's see if this sets any alarms off: This powerful orga-
nization found a way to access technology it shouldn't have
been able to access, obtain information it shouldn't have been
able to obtain, and then used this information to prepare law-
suits against private citizens all without having to reveal
its sources or methods.
But hey, it's OK: They pinkie-swore they didn't do any-
This is disturbing enough by itself, but keep in mind also
, that this is a university-based research system that deals with
powerful, society-shaping technology and information.
If the &A can take a peek whenever it wants into the
file-swapping records of Internet2's users with impunity,
what other, more sensitive information could be taken by
anyone with enough money to "discover" a way in?
If the RIAA wants to sue students for file sharing, that's
its .prerogative. Those students technically are doing some-
thing illegal, under current law, even if taking action against
a handful of individuals seems foolhardy.
Using questionable means to obtain private information,
however, is an entirely separate story.
In court, the RIAA needs to prove that it has nothing to
hide by revealing its sources. There had better be another
lawsuit filed very quickly if it chooses not to do so, and we
aren't talking about copyright violation.

Work, huh? I should do some research
W e're getting near the end of the semester, and. I
thought it might be about time to try something,
As I understand it, this was the original purpose of
going to college. It's a well-recognized fact, though, that
much better ways to spend one's time have since been dis-
covered. In fact, that's why we do research: We're looking
for something better to do.
This hypothesis is confirmed by a' simple glance at
the Alligator. Although we're.a college paper, besides the
occasional reference to something a dean or a professor
did, you'd be hard-pressed to find any mention of col-
lege. Accordingly, this new foray of mine this so-called
"schoolwork" warrants a few words.
Admittedly, it's not a subject with which I am inti-
mately acquainted. (Seriously, ask my professors.) To put
it simply, I've been blessed with the gift of always being
able to find something better to do. Since this is, as I said,
the aim of research, I figure this should exempt me from
doing it. Would you make Shakespeare study grammar or
teach a dog to lick his balls? No; they're already experts.
But last week, with an eye on my already rather precari-
ous grades, I dismounted from my high horse and climbed
down into the trenches to go mano a mano with history.
My topic was a titillating one: the effectiveness of
Catholic evangelism among the natives of 16th-century
Mexico. If that doesn't pique your interest, if that doesn't
get your blood pumping, if that doesn't leave you twit-
terpated just thinking about it, then you are a perfectly
normal young adult. If it does, however, I urge you to
consult with a physician or grad school admissions cata-
At any rate, I had a fever and there only was one cure:

something: I love footnotes.
They're like a secret window into
the author's mind. Footnotes are

Letters to the Editor
Bill threatens UF international students
Editor. If Rep. Dennis Baxley has his way,
international students soon could be kissing
their financial aid goodbye. As if the $50 fee
they pay each Fall and Spring semester for
their own surveillance wasn't bad enough, in-
ternational students across Florida soon may
be denied state financial aid altogether. Baxley
recently co-authored a bill that could eliminate
financial aid by state funds to international
students. The bill, which aims to "expand ac-
cess to post-secondary -education and reduce
student indebtedness," also includes "prohib-
iting the use of such funds to provide financial
assistance to specified foreign students."
UF has made it a priority to increase the
diversity of the student body and faculty alike.
President Machen has spoken on numerous
occasions of becoming a Top 10 institution
and the importance of a diverse campus to
achieving that goal. International students
are a vital part of UF. Many departments at
UF rely heavily on international graduate
students to do the bulk of their teaching. What
message will the administration be sending to
potential students from other countries if they
don't provide any financial assistance to help
them achieve their academic goals? Will inter-
national students enroll at UF at all? UF had
127 fewer international students enroll in the
2004 school year than the 2003 academic year,
which amounts to a 22 percent drop in that
year's enrollment and a 5 percent drop within
the total international student body.
Those numbers only will continue to
plunge if this bill passes. I call on the UF ad-
ministration to take a stand against SB 866 (HB
21). If UF truly values diversity as it claims,
then it will take the measures necessary to
protect international student financial aid.
'Drunk' radio show respects participants
Editor: Earlier-this semester my friend and
I were invited to be on "Drunk Bitch Friday."
My friend was the participant and I was her
"handler." Throughout the show, I was com-
pletely sober and witnessed firsthand the
mannerisms and demeanor of Lex and Terry.
Never once did they encourage her to have
more alcohol, nor did they make her feel bad
for wanting to stop drinking. It completely
was her decision on what and how much she
wanted to drink, and a police officer was on
hand at all times to oversee things.
After we left the show, transportation and
an extra night's stay in a hotel were provided
for safety and security reasons. UF should not
cancel a show that doesn't force their guests to
do anything they don't want to do. The people
involved with the Lex and Terry show acted
responsibly and had nothing to do with the
decisions my friend made. UF-definitely has
overstepped its boundaries on this one.
The fact is, the Lex and Terry show doesn't
encourage drinking. The university can cancel
any show it wants, but that isn't going to dis-
courage or stop drinking. Lex and Terry aren't
exploiting a problem, because they aren't en-
couraging underage drinking, drunk driving
or even binge drinking. They simply are ask-
ing a legal, responsible young lady to come on
their show and have a good time.
If we, as a university community, do not
trust ourselves enough to do the right thing
and worry that a simple morning talk show
can skew our judgment, than I think we have
a much larger problem to worry about.
Heros don't just 'overcome' disabilities
Editor: Jason Levitt's column "Midget Pomrn
Star Not a Good Role Model," was offensive
at its core. His ableism and fear of disability is
apparent throughout the column, which does
nothing more than help keep cultural stereo-
types and stigmas in place.
While Levitt may choose to hold any be-
liefs he likes concerning pornography and
subsequently judge anyone with or without
a disability participating in pornography, the
column had nothing to do with porn and ev-
erything to do with his misunderstanding of
disability pride and disability culture.
Levitt refers to Bridget as "the actress
who dehumanizes herself as some sexual
circus freak." He does not say pornography
is dehumanizing, but rather he says being a
"sexual circus freak" is. Is a black person in
pornography being a sexual circus n*****? Is
a homosexual in pornography a sexual circus
f**? Why is a midget in pornography a freak?
Are allmidgets freaks, or is that just when they
have sex on or off the screen?
Levitt writes, "What Powerz does is the
opposite. She becomes her disability. She is
Bridget 'the Midget.' And then she takes her
disability, now her whole person, and makes it
a fetish for others." He suggests that, by iden-
tifying with a core aspect of herself her dis-
ability Bridget is committing an act of self-
treason. This is akin to suggesting a Native
American not take pride in being Iroquois or a
female not take pride in being a woman.
Levitt continues this thread of ableism by
writing that Bridget's identification with her
disability "is not self-actualization; this is self-
dehumanization." This is tantamount to say-
ing that being disabled is-dehumanizing.
Levitt attempts to mitigate his criticism
by praising Bethany Stevens, but in doing so
he only further reveals his position. He pa-
tronizingly salutes her for having "proved to
be more than her disability." This is no more
acceptable than saying that the president of
the Black Student Association is a hero for
overcoming his or her black skin tone.
Bethany Stevens is powerful and extraor-
dinary, and none of this is because she has
"overcome" her disability.
Past UF disabled speaker
Past tragic events don't represent the true nature of Israel
In his guest column; William James Martin begins with an
elaborate description of events that allegedly took place
in the village of Deir Yassin on April 9, 1948. This isolated
"massacre," while generally accepted as having taken place,
does not represent the state of Israel. Terrorism does not repre-
sent the state of Israel. Israel is a nation of peace, and one that
does not deliberately target civilians or threaten to exterminate
the existence of an entire people. The technological, social and
humanitarian advancements made every day by Israel attest
to her glory as a thriving member of the international com-
munity, and her numerous efforts at forging peace with the
Palestinians cannot be overlooked. I ask you, Mr. Martin, have
the Palestinian people ever made a concerted effort at peace
with the Israelis? The answer is no. Do not fall into the trap of
moral equivalency, asserting that an isolated incident should
condemn the efforts of an entire nation, especially when terror-
ist groups supported by the Palestinian Authority believe that
the use of violence is a legitimate activity.
Martin casts a negative image on Israel as a state "created
, for one ethnicity." I answer this in two ways.
First, Israel was created not for but by one ethnicity, and
this can be seen in the makeup of the Israeli Knesset where

Semmel this statement seems out of line with the
Speaking Out global trend of the formation of the na-
tion-state. A nation-state may be defined
as. a state whose political borders are
coterminous with cultural or ethnic boundaries. Some of the
greatest examples of states created for one ethnicity are France,'
Spain and any of the former Soviet Socialist Republics.
-Additionally, to say that Israel exists at the expense of the
indigenous Arab population simply is false for many reasons.
First of all, a Jewish presence in the land of Palestine has
existed far longer than an Arab population. The arrival of many
more Jews into the region during the latter half of the 19th cen-
tury initiated apd contributed to the revival of the land and the
reinstitution of its economy. Jewish immigrants, purchasing
land legally from local authorities under the slowly destabiliz-
ing Ottoman Empire, were responsible for creating social insti-
tutions and a system of irrigation, among other advancements,
which would lay the foundation for the state of Israel.
Evidence of this is beautifully cited by Alan Dershowitz and
by Benny Morris, to whom Martin refers often in his writings.

tides of his such as "Who Is Pushing Whom into the Sea?" and
"Condoleezza Rice Confused about the Middle East." I gener-
ally am a progressive person, but I also am very pro-Israel, and
it is time for liberal Americans, especially instructors such as
Martin and his colleagues, to understand that these values are
not mutually exclusive. Israel is a beacon of hope for democ-
racy in an otherwise dark region of the world, and should be
supported by every American regardless of ideology.
The beautiful thing about supporting Israel is that this is-
sue is one of the few on which most government officials agree
across the-aisle. It is time instructors on college campuses across
the country come forth with pro-Israel views. It is not "popu-
lar" among liberal academics to support Israel, seemingly
because the Palestinians are the "underdogs" and the tradition
stands to support those in a weaker position. This is utter non-
sense, and pro-Israel professors need not be embarrassed any
longer to be as outspoken as their anti-Israel counterparts are.
Perhaps, with the reinstatement of a study-abroad program to
Israel at UF as well as at many other prestigious universities
across the nation, professors finally will have their chance.

Bill passed House 97-17 UF to ban ads, encourage responsible drinking
DEVOLUTION, from page 1
UF has some of the lowest tuition costs in the nation, and
President Bernie Machen has argued that UF must raise tu-
ition significantly to bolster university revenues. -
However, at an event Tuesday, Machen expressed his
confidence that the bill would not impede upon UF's goals.
Joe Kays, a UF spokesman on legislative issues, said that
while he was encouraged that UF could have more leeway
this year in setting tuition for out-of-state and graduate stu-
dents neither of which are covered by the Bright Futures
or Prepaid programs UF is still lobbying for more.
"It's kind of an evolving thing, this whole devolution
process, and while this is a good start, hopefully they'll
consider more as time goes on," Kays said. "We're going to
keep working toward that goal, and we'll have to see how
the economic and political environment evolves over the
next year and beyond."
Since the Legislature has paid for Bright Futures and
Prepaid, it has sought to keep tuition and therefore its
own Bright Futuies costs low.
The UF administration contends low tuition starves the
university of funding and keeps faculty salaries well below
the national average. But in an era where most students
graduate thousands of dollars in debt, UF students want to
keep it that way.
Lobbyists employed by Student Government at a cost of
$70,000 in Activity and Service fees supported the bill over the
opposition of the university and urged it along in the Senate.
The bill passed the Florida House 97-17 on March 29, but
no similar Senate plan had been considered until Tuesday.
Senate President Tom Lee said he was uncomfortable
passing such a bill until the York lawsuit had been decided.
But Lee, noted for opposing the-power of lobbyists in
Tallahassee, wanted lobbyists banned from serving on the
BOG or boards of trustees.
In return for nudging the bill through the Senate, House
Speaker Allan Bense, R-Panama City, agreed to keep lobbyists
off the boards, leading to a deal that advances the legislation.
In 2000, lobbyist-tumed-politician-turned-lobbyist John
Thrasher abolished the Board of Regents while serving as
House Speaker in order to build a medical school at Florida
State University, his alma mater, and put state universities un-
der the control of Gov. Jeb Bush's Department of Education.
Two years later, former U.S. Sen. Bob Graham sponsored
a voter-initiated constitutional amendment establishing the
BOG to govern the system as a replacement to the Regents.
In 2004, the Legislature, led by FSU alumnus Senate
President Jim King, approved $9 million a year in perpetuity
for a controversial chiropractic school to be built at FSU.
Thrasher, now chairman of the FSU Board of Trustees, re-
fused to kill the plan fearing retaliation against his lobby, al-
though many at FSU wanted nothing to do with the school.
The newly-formed BOG, led by Carolyn Roberts of Ocala,
finally bared its teeth Jan. 27 when it shot down the plan.
Reached Tuesday for comment, Roberts declined to talk
about the bill but said, "I think it's very important for the
BOG to have a good relationship with the Legislature, and I
intend to have that relationship."
MACH EN, from page 1
cohol sponsorship for any event held at
the Stephen C. O'Connell Center. Then,
he encouraged joint university and city
meetings, spawning three subcommit-
tees to research the problem.
And this week he suspended the Lex
and Terry radio segment "Drunk Bitch
Friday'" from Rock 104's airwaves, citing
that it is "dehumanizing" to women and
promotes binge drinking.
But Machen said he doesn't expect
these measures to stop students from im-
bibing, calling the acts "overly simplistic."
The idea is to change the environ-
ment that leads to unhealthy drinking
habits, he said. This includes alcohol
specials, advertising and preconceived
notions of college life.
UF already has begun educating in-
coming freshmen on the misconception
that most UF students drink excessively.
If students don't think they're expect-
ed to go through college in'an alcoholic
blur, they're more likely to be respon-
sible drinkers, he said. Responsibility is
the focus at this stage, not abstinence.
"I have no intention of attempting
to force a state of prohibition for any
student who is over 21 and who makes
responsible choices," he said.
'Too many stu-
dents in our com-
Shave experienced first-
hand the tragic conse-
quences of excessive
drinking," he said.
Machen But those who
say that drinking is a
"right of passage" for students and noth-
ing can be done are wrong, Machen said.
"If we just give them a little help,
they'll get it and they'll take off with this
thing," he said.
A proposed City Commission ordi--
nance closing bars at 3 a,m., however, is
not a push in the right direction.
Even if alcohol was not sold during,
the extra hour that the ordinance would
provide over the current 2 a.m. last call,
there hasn't been any research proving
that students will then be less likely to
get into accidents, he said.
UF medical studentKelly Hildebrand,
27, said she probably would have quali-
fied as a problematic drinker during her
undergraduate years. But after seeing
the repercussions of alcohol abuse in
friends, she now rarely imbibes.
Machen is on the right track, she said
after hearing him at the event.
"I think -he did a really good job
bringing up valid points," she said.
Timothy Flynn, the Medical Society's
president-elect, agreed. Machen, he said,
is sending the right message by being
"I'm a big believer in symbolism,"
The next step, Machen said, is to
work with bars to curb the shower of
alcohol specials around Gainesville.
Five alcohol-related deaths in 15
months needs to be addressed, he said.
"I don't want any more.kids to die,"
Convocation canceled after UF fails to find speaker
GRADUATION, from page 1
"It's great to have your own ceremony because you can per-
sonalize it and do pretty much whatever you want," she said.
"It's not like we mind doing graduation."
But this year the ceremonies will cost the college $35,000.
"There's just the cost side involved," she said, adding that
staffers across the college also have to take on extra work. "It's
definitely changed in the past few years."
Lionel Dubay, the director of the Stephen C. O'Connell
Center, wrote in an.e-mail that UF colleges pay $300 less than
nonprofit outside organizations, and $600 less than commer-
cial organizations to rent the facility, although events cost the
O'Connell Center the same amount. The bill adds up to ap-
proximately $10,000 for a college that fills the building.
The O'Connell Center will host seven.ceremonies this year.
Since the UF administration will not pay for graduation
anymore, Beutke thought that money would go toward a con-
vocation the entire university could attend.
But this year, convocation will not be held because UF
could not book a speaker in a timely manner, Associate Provost
Sheila Dickison wrote in an e-mail. Interim Provost Joe Glover
was not available to confirm whom UF invited to speak.
Last year's convocation brought the entire university
together, which is a rare feat, said Neil Sullivan, dean of the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
"It was a rallying point for the university as a whole,"
Sullivan said, adding he received good feedback fromparents.
"I very much appreciated the ceremony last year."
Pramod Khargonekar, dean of the College of Engineering,
said he was disappointed graduates would not get convoca-
tion this year, but understood why it happened.
"It's great to have your own ceremony because
you can personalize it and do pretty much
whatever you want."

.He said last year's convocation may have set the bar too
high with U.S. Sen. John McCain as the keynote speaker.
"You always-miss something like that, but I think we will
make up for it with the rest of the program," Khargonekar said.
His college had to find funds in its budget to support gradu-
ation, but he said having a more personal ceremony is worth it.
"I feel it's really important for our students," Khargonekar
said. "We had to find the money."
.The College of Engiheering will have a ke.inote speaker at
its commencement, but Liberal Arts and Sciences' undergradu-

Marijuana legalization group says 'Know Your Rights'
By JESSICA RIFFEL
Alligator Contributing Writer
Knowing the Bill of Rights
is one's strongest asset when
it comes to averting arrest, a
National Organization for the
Reform of Marijuana Laws offi-
cial told attendees at an on-cam-
pus forum Tuesday.
"I hoped they would learn
On techniques to keep

system and that they should as-

whenever possible," NORML
Executive Director Allen St.
St. Pierre explained how
the Fifth Amendment protects
people from being compelled to
testify against themselves, urg-
ing the audience to never consent
to. a search or to answer questions
without an attorney present.
That knowledge served St.
Pierre when he encountered a po-
tentially compromising situation.
Years ago, while driving in
Pennsylvania, he hit a median and
was pulled over. The police officer
began asking questions, but when
the officer asked to search his ve-
hicle, St. Pierre refused.
Without a warrant, the officer
could not legally perform the
search, and St. Pierre was al-
lowed to leave.

if a person is respectful, police
often profile the people they pull

that comes out of prohibition,"
St. Pierre said.
He told the audience that the
No. 1 factor that increases inter-
action with police is age, with
profiling being the most perva-
sive among 24-and-under males.
To combat unjust situations
in which officers take advantage
of people's ignorance of the law,
NORML created the Freedom

plained how NORML has won
cases based on officers' violation
Qf people's constitutional rights.
"If you've got the gumption,
and you've got the resources, you
can challenge the government,"
St. Pierre said.
The president of UF's NORML
chapter, Ashlee Valdes, met St.
Pierre at the organization's na-
tional conference in 2004 and in-
vited him to speak at UF's event.
"Knowing how to assert your
rights is very important," Valdes
said. "People should now be able
to use it in a police encounter."

Cabinet increase sparks debate
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Initial efforts by the soon-to-be
Student Body president and vice
president to increase the number
and specialization of cabinets in
Student Government succeeded
Tuesday night, but not without fer-
vent debate in the Student Senate.
The number of cabinets, which
address a wide range of student is-
sues under SG's executive branch,
was increased from 36 to 41.
The Public Relations Cabinet
was split into Advertising,
Promotions and Publicity, and a
Responsible Gators Cabinet was
added to address UF administra-
tive concerns about excessive stu-
The bill originally was authored
by Student Body President-elect
Joe Goldberg and Vice President-
elect Joyce Medina, but Jennifer
Puckett, who oversaw the cabinets
during the past year in her role
as Student Body vice president,
added herself as an author during
Tuesday's Senate meeting.
"They know what they're doing
- the changes they've -made ad-
dress real concerns," Puckett said.
She added that she spent a lot of
time discussing the changes with
Bacon, who said
he has worked
on SG's Cabinet
for two years,
made two formal
to the bill to prevent the Cabinet
from becoming what he called a
Bacon said since an unlimited
amount of staff members can work
within each Cabinet, adding more
cabinets would result in each of
them receiving less funding and
becoming less effective.
He tried twice to stop the addi-
tion of an Internal Communications
Cabinet, which he said does not
meet statute requirements.
SG documents state that Cabinet
requirements are to coordinate
communications between organi-
zations and SG, as well as main-
taining an SG bulletin board and
making the SG office a "welcoming
and cheerful environment."-
Both of Bacon's amendments
to remove additional cabinets
failed in close votes, as well as one
amendment by Sen. Mike Belle to
remove the Responsible Gators
Cabinet from the bill because he
said he felt it was more of a po-
litical gesture than something that
truly was needed.
Sen. Jackie Pace said Cabinet po-
sitions exist to serve the students,
and an increase in cabinets would
only further that cause.
"I don't see how expanding
Student Government is going to
hurt at all," she said.
Canseco to talk
Fans wanting to hear one of the most controversial
figures in baseball's story will have the chance to do so.
Jose Canseco, who recently admitted using steroids
during his Major League Baseball career, will speak to-
night at 8 p.m. at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center.
The speech, entitled "JUICED: A Look at Steroids,
Baseball and the Future of Sports," is free and open to
the public, and doors will open at 7 p.m.
On Accent, UF's speakers bureau is sponsor-
Campus ing the event.
Canseco is making the first college
stop of his "JUICED" tour promoting his book "Juiced:
Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits, and How
Baseball Got Big." In the book, not only does Canseco
admit to using steroids, but he also names other players
who he witnessed using steroids.
Canseco hit over 400 home runs and was the first
player to hit 40 in one season while stealing 40 bases.
Canseco testified before Congress about steroids on
March 17. In his testimony, he said steroid use was ram-
pant and baseball turned its back to it.

UF weighs in on drug-free paths to sports fitness
* COLLEGE BASEBALL HAS SEEN
FAR FEWER STEROID ALLEGATIONS.
By MARK HULSEY
Alligator Contributing Writer
The needle is inserted into the body, or the
cream is rubbed on.
That is all it takes for a baseball player to
cheat the game by using steroids.
Major League Baseball steroid allegations
have made news recently, leaving college
baseball as a pure, drug-free form of the
game. The NCAA has a strict policy in place
for players who test positive for any banned
The athlete becomes ineligible for 365 days
and loses one year of eligibility.
Besides giving a player an apparent advan-
tage, performance-enhancing steroids have
serious negative side effects that can stay with
a player long after his career is over.
"The side effects for men would be acne.
It shrinks the testicles and can cause cancer,"
said Charlie Hunt, a certified personal trainer.
Hunt said oral steroids, those in capsule or
tablet form, can put lesions on the liver.
College baseball -has avoided the steroid
allegations of the professional game by using
regimented workout programs done under
the supervision of trainers, and by using the
extra power provided by aluminum bats.
"Anabolic steroids deal with the male hor-
mone testosterone, which increases strength in
the muscle," Hunt said.
Matt LaPorta, first baseman
Student for the UF baseball team, said
Life steroids are not necessary.
"I think the workouts we do
here get you plenty big, plenty
strong and it's the baseball kind of strength
you need," he said.
The workout program starts in early Fall
and consists of weightlifting four times a week.
The workout program also consists of run-
ning four times a week, working on endur-
ance as well as agility.
The constant theme in all the workouts is
the need to make sure the workouts keep the
athletes at the proper fitness level for baseball.
"With baseball players, you don't want
them to get very bulky. You're always trying to
increase flexibility," said Steve Oriss, strength
and conditioning coach for UF baseball. "The
main goal for any baseball player is to develop
power. We'll turn base strength and power
into baseball-specific strength."
The NCAA has its own testing policy play-
ers must abide by, and the university also has a
policy in place monitoring players closer than
the NCAA requires, Oriss said.
The university randomly tests all its ath-
letes every few weeks.
This policy has been in place for years and
has not been affected by the recent steroid ac-
cusations at the professional level.
In .1999-2000, the NCAA administered
9,206 tests. Ninety-two athletes, less than 1
percent, tested positive for steroids.
Some players use additional supplements
like Creatine, but not before they are specifi-
cally approved by a nutritionist.
Legal supplements are used in college
baseball but are closelymonitored. The Gators
use a post-workout recovery drink known as
, Go Shake, a calorie booster, but that is all the
LaPorta is not into supplement use, prefer-
ring a more natural method.
"I use vitamins and just try to eat," he said.
Players in college and professional baseball
tend to agree that a player's athletic ability is
what makes one successful.
LaPorta said he believes steroids are avoid-
ed at the amateur level because the urgency to
be great is not as high as it is when baseball
becomes one's occupation.
"You see it more when you get into the
minors because you got guys with the same
talent as you, and everybody is trying to up
their game," LaPorta said.
College has avoided the black eye Major
League Baseball has received because of fre-
quent testing and players being honest and
not trying to cheat the system, LaPorta said.
UF baseball coach Pat McMahon said he is
proud of the strict drug policy the university
mandates, and said Oriss maintains that the
workouts and training done are what produce
results on the college field.
"There is so much more training with ath-
letes today," he said. "Aluminum bats is a big
factor because the hitting surface on an alumi-
num bat is bigger compared to a wood bal."
LaPorta leads UF in home runs this season.
"I don't really find a big difference between
aluminum and wood," LaPorta said. "I've
always believed if you're a good enough hit-
ter, you're always gonna make good contact,
which is gonna make the ball carry out of the
yard or not."

Junior wide receiver Dallas
Baker exemplifies UF's previously
flawed cycle of receiver develop-
ment. Baker has always been phe-
nomenal in spring, but admittedly
lost ground in summer.

Added Mullen: "Dallas Baker
has to run every route 1,000 times
this summer and catch up to 1,000
balls if we want to be successful."
Leak will still hold much of the
receiver responsibility. He has to
schedule workout times and some-
times motivate the receivers. But
even the quarterback isn't worried
about this summer's workouts.
"I've done that for three years,
so that's definitely not a problem at
all," Leak said. "All these receivers
want to go. out there and get better."
And Mullen? He has his own
litmus test to determine whether
Leak and Co. do their job.

after the summer and say, 'You
know what? I can put a blindfold
on and throw all the routes of our
offense right now, because I know
where everyone is going to be,'"
Avoiding off-the-field disaster:
It's been 129 days since Meyer
officially became UF's coach, and
for 129 days, the Gators football
team has been arrest-free. Still,
Meyer lives every day in fear that
the streak could be snapped, espe-
cially since spring practice is over.
"All you have to do is [check]
and all those things every morn-
ing to see what's going on, and it's
shocking," Meyer said.
Last summer, Channing
Crowder, Jarvis Herring and
Taurean Charles were arrested,
while Earl Everett and Skyler
Thornton were implicated in two
NCAA Division I policies
forbid Meyer and his assistants
from being involved with summer
workouts, hindering their ability
to monitor players. But Meyer has
a backup plan.
"Instead of being a weight:nd
training staff that kind of closes
[its] eyes and hopes nothing bad
happens, we're going to look into
their eyes and tell what's going on,"
Meyer said. "If you do your home-
work and grind it, you can find out
how your players are living."
Meyer's watchdog program.
starts with the players themselves,
such as redshirt senior Tavares
Washington. UF's designated
clubhopper, Washington frequents
popular club on certain nights to
ensure the players avoid trouble.
"I don't trust them because
they're 18- and 22-year-olds in
a college town with all kinds of
things pulling at them, and I don't
know them well enough yet,"
For Meyer, UF's 2005 outlook
hinges as much on discipline as
"If we don't live right, we're
very average next year," he said'.

UF FOOTBALL SUMMER PREVIEW
Staff to test receivers, discipline
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
He already dug The Pit.
He already attracted an unprecedented 58,500
fans for a scrimmage.
So what does Coach Urban Meyer do for an en-
core during the summer? Just re-invents the human
body, that's all.
"I want them to look like what a Florida football
team is supposed to look like," Meyer said. "That's
veins looking like they're stretched, big necks, big
arms, big shoulders and muscular, strong, big
According to Meyer, the Gators are a few million
bench presses away from looking season-ready.
That's where summertime comes in. The play-
ers meet with the assistant coaches this week. They
meet with Meyer next week. And after some time
off, they're off to the weight room.
"There's been a very key challenge given to our .
strength coaches getting this team looking the way
[it's] supposed to look," Meyer said. "Now we're
athletic. We can run on nights with a lot of teams,
but you'll see what we're supposed to look like in
a few months."
Receivers getting serious
They always seem to be fast, always seem to
be among the conference's elite. But UF's wide
receivers have a history of summer woes.
Sure, Chris Leak schedules workout times with
his receivers. Yes, his receivers usually show up.
But in past summers they messed around instead
of running around. They made excuses instead of
plays. All that is about to change.
"What you can't do is go out and fool around,"
quarterbacks coach Dan Mullen said. "Going out
for half an hour and just throwing the ball around Nick West/ Alligator Staff
doesn't accomplish anything. Coach Urban Meyer just concluded his first spring in

Church of Meyer
You're sipping your Urban Bourbon, comfortably
clothed in your "Got Urban?" T-shirt.
Your Urban missal.
Coach Urban Meyer has done everything to change
the Gators football program short of spray-painting
"The Swamp" in Utes red and white. But peel away all
the layers of discipline, vision and honesty, and you get
a man who could very well start his own church. And
get away with it.
Think that's a little far-fetched?
Consider that Meyer has already converted a handful
of non-believers during spring practice.
In fact, you could even call
S. : them Meyer's 12 disciples.

In no specific order and in no
rank of importance, we'll start with safety-turned-de-
Crum. In his first two seasons, Crum became the epito-
me of the All-Airport All Star. You know looks that kill,
skills that don't. Crum even resembles Milli Vanilli, so
you can't blame him. But after fighting injury and ma-
joring in benchwarmology, Crum has shined in spring
practice at linebacker. You heard that right shined.
Disciple number- two: Billy Latsko. Latsko proves
that Meyer knows a tad more about defense than Zook,
a former NFL defensive coordinator. Latsko did every-
thing right as UF's fullback last season. The problem is
that Meyer's spread offense doesn't have a fullback. So,
instead of asking Latsko to drive his kids to soccer prac-
tice every day, Meyer switched him to linebacker.
"We went into spring practice with two linebackers
that were Florida linebackers," Meyer said. "We walked
away with, I believe, four and a half, five. Crum and
Latsko are the half and they're dose to being Florida
Disciple number three: Todd McCullough, a.k.a. Mr.
Nice Guy. That's how Meyer referred to the linebacker
in his pre-spring press conference. Why the sarcasm?

Additional game could lead to UF-Miami matchup
The NCAA Division I
Management Council has backed
legislation that would allow
Division I-A and I-AA schools to
add a 12th football game starting
with the 2006 season.
The plan was given tenta-
tive approval by the council at
its meeting on Monday and will
be sent to the NCAA Board of
Directors for final consideration
The ramifications for UF could
be huge. It's long been discussed
that if the Gators had a 12th game
on its schedule, the UF-Miami
series could be renewed annually.
If the legislation passes, a yearly
clash between the Gators and
Hurricanes could return for the
first time since the 1980s.

long enough at 11 games,

There was no discussion of the

"The various conferences came
to the meeting prepared to vote,
and we just tallied the votes,"
Ron Wellman, the athletic di-
rector at Wake Forest and chair-
man of the ACC's athletic direc-

concerns dealt with academics.

The No. 15 UF softball team (32-10,
11-4 Southeastern Conference) will
face a familiar foe when it takes the
diamond in Tampa today.
The Gators will play their third
game against South Florida (28-20),
having already defeated the Bulls
twice in two separate tournaments this
season. The teams will conclude their
extended series at 6 p.m. at the USF
"[USF] will be tough competition,"
Coach Karen Johns said. "They're a
very good hitting team. They have
struggled on the defensive side of the
ball, though, so hopefully we'll be able
to go down there and take advantage
If the previous two meetings
between the teams are any indica-
tion, today's game should be evenly
matched and hard fought from inning
one through seven. UF won the previ-
ous two match-ups by a combined
three runs, including an extra-innings
affair. The teams nearly matched each
other in hits, with UF holding a 24-22

spring practices, you may have witnessed a rejuve-
nated No. 24 looking like he could cover more than
just a trashcan. Carter may not play much in the fall,
but he's ensured he won't be the joke of UF's second-
