Group to give pill
By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
Citing feminist crusader
Margaret Sanger's efforts to dis-
tribute then-illegal birth control
in the 1920s, members of the
Gainesville Women's Liberation
have scheduled their own form
of civil disobedience.
As part of a larger move-
ment to gain Food and Drug
Administration approval of the
"Plan B" morning-after pill as
an over-the-counter medication,
members plan to distribute ille-
gally the emergency contracep-
tion on the comer of Southwest
13th Street and University
Avenue on Tuesday at noon.
The group's 10 pills came
from personal prescriptions.
"Unfortunately, we only
have a limited amount of pills
we can pass out, but we. still
want to pass on information
about the campaign and the ur-
gency of the issue," UF student
Claire Beach said.
On In January,

feminist groups were arrested
after blocking the entrance to
the FDA offices in Rockville,
Md., also in protest of the delay
in approving the Plan B pill for
Among those charged with
disorderly conduct was UF
alumna Stephanie Seguin, who
said the group blocked access
to the FDA because the FDA is

The Florida Guardian ad Litem Program

problem of child abuse.

law, is a court-appointed volunteer who, by

Clarkson Cantrell, director of Guardian

Judicial Circuit, has worked for more than
24 years to assist battered women and chil-

of abuse on a child's mental health.
"Domestic violence has a profound long-
term effect on children," Cantrell said.
"We are not trained therapists. Generally,
we're counseled just to be good listeners,"

ing minority whether that be
Republicans or Democrats doesn't
like something, he can step up to
the lectem, pull out a cookbook and
proceed to make policy decisions by
explaining why he prefers his omelets
with two eggs instead of three.
There only is one valid argument as
to why this silliness should continue:
Filibusters (theoretically) can make de-
cisions more fair and balanced because
(theoretically) bills or nominees with-
out enough support are too extreme to
be effective for the public good.

both sides vote straight down the party
line. The fact that Democratic senators
oppose the most-conservative judicial
nominees (read: most-Republican) is
not indicative that the nominees are too
extreme for the public it's indicative
of the Democratic Party waving their
skinny little fists at their oppressors.
In order to make this concept ac-
cessible to everyone, here's an analogy
of what filibusters would be like if we
allowed them at Gators football games:
FSU is down 37 points after being
slapped around the field all day long.
In the final seconds, they call timeout.
However, because they're living
in the bizarre world inhabited by
Congress, their last time out is a spe-
cial, infinite "filibuster time. out. So,
the FSU players take off their pads, roll
up some sleeping bags and pull out
some homework (pom).
The Gators, to use the technical
term, are "screwed." They played
hard and outscored their opponents
by a margin that would be physically
impossible to overcome. But there's
nothing they can do. They can't force
the FSU players to get off the field,
and there's a rule in the Bizarro-world
Laws of Football that says any game
that isn't over by dawn automatically
is declared-a draw. The record books
will show that UF was in the lead, but
the teams' records will show a draw.

Recent actions make the
commission race unclear
T he Alligator has chosen to withhold its endorsement
of a candidate for Tuesday's City Commission runoff
We have no doubt whom we'd feel more comfortable
endorsing in the battle between incumbent Tony Domenech
and challenger Jack Donovan. We endorsed him once be-
Domenech has a boatload of ties to UF and to the com-
Donovan, to put it simply, does not.
But recent events have further muddied the waters of the
already murky pond of Gainesville city elections.
Now, even more than in the Student Government cam-
paigns, it-is clear that elections make strange bedfellows.
When else would political entities like Pegeen Hanrahan
be accused of behavior as erratic as that of her and her sup-
porters' alleged introduction of controversial issues in an
attempt to discredit Domenech in the days-before the elec-
And when else would Hanrahan's, views contrast so
much with those of, say, failed Commission candidate Gabe
Kaimowitz? The latter lashed out in anger over the past
week about a Donovan advertisement emphasizing the
Presbyterian minister's "relationship with God."
But Kaimowitz's campaign was a self-described experi-
ment, which we will go further to describe as an outright
joke. So we're back at square one.
It would be' stupid for us to conclude tmtat Donovan or
Domenech would be unfit for the job.
What holds us back from reaffirming Domenech as the
best candidate for students is the same plaguing problem
that effectively precluded any support from us for the Gator
Party in the SG elections we don't like accusations of po-
litical collusion, no matter how legal or innocuous.. -
We said the same thing when Joe Goldberg ran: We don't

the lines of, say, chocolate alligators (or orange-and-blue
M&Ms, as the case may be).
If students choose not to speak out, they themselves are

It's different on the City Commission: Everyone in
Gainesville is affected by the decisions commissioners make
- and these effects can last for generations. Gainesville has
a number of decisions to make in the next three years on is-
sues of transportation, utilities, public safety and poverty to
name a few, which SG has the luxury of avoiding.
And while we may or may not support Goldberg's high-
ly politicized battle to extend bar-closing times by an hour,
we feel that extending the UF political machine to support
the proposal could hurt what little student voice the City
Commission currently has.
There are times in politics when you can see corruption
for what it is and take steps to support the side that is fight-
ing against it.
There also are times' when both sides are so mired in
deceit at the basic level that it's, foolish to think you know
who you can trust.

POPE JOHN PAUL II 1920-2005
memory of Pope
By LINDSAY TAULBEE
Cupping candles while bundling up against the cool
evening, more than 100 students and residents gathered
Saturday at the Reitz Union Amphitheater to honor the life of
Pope John Paul II through words and song.
The candlelight vigil, organized by the St. Augustine
Church's Catholic Student Center, provided a lively celL
ebration of the pontiff's life following more solemn services,
Catholic Student Fellowship co-coordinator Larry Lataif
"We wanted to do something uplifting, so that we don't
just leave off on a negative tone," he said.
Students and local clergy including those from Hillel,
the Latter Day Saints Institute of Religion and the Emmanuel
Mennonite Church sang hymns, spoke of the pope's life
and recited his words.
"Pope John Paul encouraged each one of these
by word and by deed."
Some participants hoped to express the values of peace,
unity, faith, hope and life words which they said both
crossed all religious barriers and were encompassed by John

A slide show presented images of John. Paul, some of
which were humorous. One photograph showed him mak-
ing a face for the camera.
Other photographs showed him speaking with various
world leaders or praying.
UF student Anna Clark related a personal experience from
one of the last days of the 2002 World Youth Day in Toronto.
"I consider it one of the greatest gifts of my youth," she
told the audience.
The pope addressed thousands of spectators, saying that
despite the age difference, he identified with their hopes and
Clark teared up as she explained to the group how she felt
he genuinely understood them.
UF student Gloria Santayana said she attended the cer-
emony as a Catholic who had felt the pope's influence.
"I just wanted to pay my respects, because he had a huge
impact on the entire world, and he impacted me and my
faith," she said.

A group of UF art students turned
a Turlington Plaza vending machine

* NEITHER TONY DOMENECH NOR JACK DONOVAN
WON 50 PERCENTOF THE VOTE ON MARCH 29.
By IVETTE MENDEZ
After three extra weeks of anticipation since the
Gainesville City Commission general election, District 3
candidates Jack Donovan and incumbent Tony Domenech
will face each other again in a runoff election Tuesday.
The March 29 election did not yield a winner in District
3, representing west and southwest Gainesville, because
neither of the candidates received more than 50 percent of
Domenech received 48.34 percent of the total votes from
the seven precincts, and Donovan tallied 44.19 percent. UF
student Mike Belle, who is not a candidate in the runoff, got
The last chance for early voters to cast their ballots is
Monday at the Supervisor of Elections Office in downtown
So far, about 125 early votes have been cast as well as
284 absentee ballots, Supervisor of Elections Pam Carpenter
"Everything has been running very smoothly," she said.
Due to the election only being between two candidates,
Carpenter said she expects a higher turnout and that voters
will be much more focused on the candidates.
"I'm hoping it's going to surpass the turnout from last
election," she said.
Precinct information is available at the Supervisor of
Elections Web site at http://elections.alachua.fl.us.
Goldberg denies agreement with candidate
DOMENECH, from page 1
Sunday, Domenech admitted to having a close rela-
tionship with Goldberg and UF.
"I know Joe Goldberg very well," he said. "I have
never really disconnected from the university."
When directly questioned on the issue of his al-
legedly promising to vote for extending bar hours,
Domenech deferred comment to Goldberg.
"It would be a violation of the protocol to come
out one way or another," he said, asserting that he has
never committed to a position one way or the other on
extending the closing time.
The mayor and Commissioners Craig Lowe and
Warren Nielsen have already said they would vote for
the extension, Domenech said.
Thus, he said, telegraphing which way he was
leaning would make further study of the problem
meaningless by revealing that four of the seven sitting
city commissioners would vote for the extension.
As far as his association -with SG and student
groups, Domenech said, "I always listened to them."
Domenech, a UF alumnus, was 'the only City
Commissioner at the Orange & Brew restaurant
to hear results for the initial SG election as well as
that race's runoff between Goldberg and the Impact
Party's Dennis Ngin.
Goldherg, in turn, put in an appearance downtown
at the Supervisor of Elections Office to hear the cam-
paign results in the March 29 election.
However, Goldberg said- he was .there merely to
show his support for city government.
"I don't recall this conversation," he said when
asked about the alleged meeting with Hanrahan.
Several campaign signs promoting Domenech
for Tuesday's election surround the Phi Delta Theta
Domenech was being supported in the election
as a Phi Delta Theta Fraternity brother in the same
way those fraternity brothers supported Goldberg for
Student Body president, Goldberg said.
Patrons of the Swamp Restaurant said they saw
Goldberg and companions passing out campaign
stickers promoting Domenech before Sunday.
"I wasn't at the Swamp this weekend," Goldberg
laughed. "I know where my vote is going, but I'm not
going to use my position as the next Student Body
president in that way."
"Tony's absolutely a friend of mine," Goldberg
said, adding he continues to include Hanrahan on his
list of friends.

barrel of the gun about two feet from the face,
of another man, Gainesville resident Rafael

Alligator forum hosts criticism
By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
A panel of seven editors and a cartoonist met in the
"bat cave" of Weimer Hall to atone for a semester's
worth of sins Friday evening, but some members of the
audience left feeling there was more to be forgiven.
About 20 readers dotted the 250-seat Gannett
Auditorium in the College of Journalism and
Communications to ask questions and offer criticism of
The Independent Florida Alligator staff.
On "We're interested in constructive criti-
Campus cism and deconstructive criticism," said
moderator Mike Foley, master lecturer in
the journalism college.
Some of the audience consisted of Alligator writers
and reporting students from Foley's class. But a few,
including Journalism Department Chairman William
McKeen, had genuine grievances to air.
McKeen said the Alligator significantly misrepre-
sented his position on bringing The Gainesville Sun on
campus in a March 28 article and showed poor judg-
ment in choosing what to print and what to cut.
Alligator Editor Dwayne Robinson attributed the
duplication and deletion of paragraphs to a production
error that occurred in submitting the paper for print.
Another reader told the Alligator staff that students
get sick of reading about Student Government. She
thought the Alligator printed too many stories about cor-

Nevertheless, the forum was a positive gesture on
the part of the staff, she said.

Cartoonist Andy Marlette also explained the con-
troversial cartoon depicting UF basketball player Matt
Walsh crying tears that read "choke." Some fans felt the
cartoon betrayed the team, but he said his job was first
as a cartoonist and second as a fan.
"As much as I hate to do it as a Gator fan, I love to do

Man warns of lead
By SKYLER SMITH
Marc Edwards stood in front of a crowd of ab6ut 50 people
Friday and insisted that he-wasn't crazy.
Edwards, a civil-engineering professor at Virginia Tech,
spoke of his experiences in Washington D.C. trying to protect
consumers from dangerous lead levels in drinking water.
"Disinfecting water has probably saved more lives than all
the medical breakthroughs combined," he said.
However, when chlorine is added to rid the water of
germs, it can produce carcinogens. Recently, the chemical
chloramine, which is ammonia mixed with chlorine, has been
added to public water to kill these carcinogens.
But the addition of chloramine can raise lead levels.
In Washington D.C., lead amounts spiked after the D.C.
Water and Sewer Authority began adding the chemical.
Edwards did tests in consumers' homes that showed lead
content could be as high as 1,250 lead parts per billion. The
Environmental Protection Agency stated a mere 40 ppb was
enough to endanger children.
Gainesville Regional Utilities spokesman Dan Jesse said
that the Murphree Water Treatment Plant does not use chlo-
ramine in its treatment of Gainesville's water supply.

UF golf teams finish short in SEC Championships
For the second consecutive year, the UF
men's golf team entered the final round of
the Southeastern Conference Championships
with at least a share of the lead.
For the second consecutive year, the Gators.
saw that lead slip away.
UF stumbled on Sunday, shooting its high-
est round of the tournament, a 22-over 302,
and slipped to fourth place, 13 shots behind
"It's disappointing when you don't per-
form well on the final day of a tournament,
especially when it's the SEC Championships,"
UF Coach Buddy Alexander said. "It's defi-
nitely tough to take, but I told our team that
the day is ruined but the season isn't. There
are still goals that this team can accomplish
and we'll come back and work hard to give
ourselves a chance of accomplishing them."
The No. 6 Gators entered third round play
at the Seaside Course in Sea Island, Ga., with a
five-shot lead over Auburn.
Juniors Brett Stegmaier and Matt Every
placed in the top 10 for UF.
Finishing seven shots behind individ-
ual champion David Skinns of Tennessee,
Stegmaier shot rounds of 75, 70 and 72 en
route to a fourth place finish at 7-over.
UF next travels to Nashville for the NCAA
Regionals beginning May 19.
WOMEN SIXTH: At least some good came out
of a sixth-place finish at the Southeastern
Conference Championships for the UF
women's golf team.
The three-round tournament marked the
return to form of freshman
Whitney Myers, who fol-
lowed an even-par 72 on
Friday with successive 74's,
good enough for a solo run-
Myers earned the high-
est finish for a UF golfer
this season and her first
Briles-Hinton top-10 since the opening
event of the fall.
"Whitney played to win today and she did
a fantastic job," Coach Jill Briles-Hinton said.
"She didn't back down and just kept going
at it. She put three solid rounds together and
I am proud of her. Whitney was the leading
lady on our team with a cast that couldn't

man's playing time. You never know how freshman
are going to react to a certain situation," Telep said.
"But make no mistake, Walter Hodge was recruited
to play early."
Assuming Roberson departs, another scholar-
ship will open up, and the Gators could very well
look at Keith Brumbaugh.
The 6-foot-8 athletic forward has said he may
jump to the NBA, but Telep said Brumbaugh prob-
ably wouldn't be a first-round pick, so he'd have
to "scratch and claw just to stay in the league."
Although he's rated as the top recruit in the
state of Florida, there's been some concern about
Brumbaugh's attitude and if Donovan would be
willing to sign a guy some consider a head case.
Telep said it should be a no-brainer.
"Brumbaugh is an immensely talented of-
fensive basketball player," Telep said. "This is a
guy who's 6-8 and can play on the perimeter. He
[should fit into] the style of offense Florida wants
to play. If he wants to come to Florida, they would
have to take a long, hard look at him."
Telep also is high on incoming freshman
Derwin Kitchen, a 6-foot-4 guard who he believes
could receive the most playing time of any fresh-
man next season.
"Kitchen's a combo guard that can play both
positions for them. He's also a proven winner,"
Telep said. "He's a versatile a guy who can play
both guard positions and defend both spots."

Donovan brings in talent
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
If Billy Donovan can't convince Anthony
Roberson to stay at UF and it's unlikely
he will the men's basketball coach did the
next best thing.
Donovan signed a prospect who could be
the next Roberson.
Walter Hodge, the Florida Gatorade State
Player of the Year out of Florida Air Academy
in Melbourne, doesn't have quite the same
accolades of Roberson a McDonald's High
School All American heading into UF, but
the 6-foot guard's style of play sounds very
similar to Roberson's.
"Hodge is a guy who is extremely fast
baseline to baseline," said Scout.com recruit-
ing analyst Dave Telep. "The guy will fire
threes; he's not a pure point guard, but he's a
speed guy that can run your offense."
Hodge averaged 25.4 points, 5.4 steals
and 4.2 assists as a senior.
In the Class 3A title game, Hodge scored
33 points, winning MVP of the state tourna-
"Walter adds speed, quickness and
shooting to our backcourt," Donovan said.
"He has the potential to be a very good
defender and is coming out of a great high
school program, so we're certainly excited
to have him join us."
Despite the loss of senior
David Lee and the likely
-departure of Roberson,
UF could be loaded with
young talent next season.
The potential battle
between Hodge and soon-
Donovan to-be sophomore Taurean
Green for the starting point
guard job should be extremely competitive.
- Green had a solid freshman season backing
up Roberson. Unlike Hodge, Green is a true
point guard, looking to pass first.
But if Hodge turns out to be as explosive as
Donovan hopes, it may be tough to keep him on
the bench for long.
"It's way too early to talk about a fresh-

SEC coaches already at it
remember asking Tennessee coach
Phil Fulmer what he thought of
Steve Spurrier returning to the
Southeastern Conference just two
days after Ron Zook was fired.
He chuckled, and then said,
"Coach Spurrier is obviously a great
football coach and a really fine man.
I think it'd be really good for our con-
ference if that's the direction Florida
chooses to go."
Well, sure enough, Spurrier is back
in the conference, and the fun has
already begun. So what if Spurrier
isn't at UF? Gators fans seem plenty
pleased with Meyer so far.

Mystics pick Morehead in third round of WNBA draft
Nick West/ Alligator Staff
Senior Tashia Morehead was selected as the 32nd pick of the 2005 WNBA Draft. She averaged 10.7
points and 4.9 rebounds during an injury-plagued Gators' career.
* THE SENIOR FORWARD
WENT 32ND OVERALL.
After a disappointing season,
the UF women's basketball team
has a reason to celebrate.
Senior Tashia Morehead was
selected by the Washington Mystics
in the third round of the WNBA
Draft on Saturday.
The 5-foot-11 forward will be
joining a team that finished 17-17 in
the WNBA Eastern Conference.
However, the Mystics took the
eventual conference champion,
Connecticut Sun, to a decisive third
game in the playoff's first round.
Morehead is the first signee of
Coach Carolyn Peck to be selected
in the WNBA. Since 1997, a Gator
has been selected in the WNBA
Draft in every year except 2003.
Morehead, who began her col-
lege career at Panama City's Gulf
Coast. Community College, was
surprised by her selection.
"I still can't believe it," she said.
"It's been a dream to play profes-
sional basketball; and now; I'm one
step closer to that becoming a real-
ity. I'm numb, and it hasn't even
sunk in that I was drafted. It didn't
care which team picked me, I'm just

cord and finish in the second round
of the NCAA in 2004.
This season, Morehead was
hampered by injuries from the
start and did not regain her form
until Southeastern Conference play.

Gators stagger in final inning of Alabama series
For 26 innings, the fifth-ranked UF baseball
team (27-9, 10-5 Southeastern Conference)
played like the best team in the SEC.
The problem is that the three-game series
consisted of 27 innings.
UF fell to No. 17 Alabama on Sunday 9-6
after leading 6-3 as the Gators entered the
ninth inning, with pitchers Stephen Locke and
Connor Falkenbach having held the Crimson
Tide to just seven hits up to that point. UP
closer Darren O'Day took the mound, having
already recorded two saves on the weekend.
"It didn't look too good, I can't say that
our dugout was sitting in there going 'It's just
a matter of time,'" Alabama coach Jim Wells
said. "We were pretty down and beat up."

Just as things looked bleak for Alabama
(26-12,9-6 SEC), first baseman Evan Bush hit a
single. Wells then sent four consecutive pinch
hitters to the plate.
After another single by senior Matt
Grooms, Alabama freshman Matt Bentley
leaned into a pitch to load the bases.
"I'm a little upset about that," O'Day said.
"The pitch was right over the middle of the
plate. If you stick your elbow out there, that's
fine, but the umpire has to see it. It's not an
excuse; it's still my fault."
The Crimson Tide was on a roll, led by
former football player Spencer Pennington's
two-run double and shortstop Cale Iorg's RBI
single that tied the game.
