The quick election of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger
as the new pope Tuesday surprised some local
Catholics, who insist the cardinals' confidence
overshadows Ratzinger's reputation as a conser-
vative and strict leader. M
The Papal Conclave chose Ratzinger in four Copyrighted M ate ia
ballots and two days, one of the shortest elections C
in 100years. Syndicated Content
"If so many of the cardinals chose him so
quickly, no doubt they have confidence in him," Available from Commercial News Providers"
said Larry Lataif, co-coordinator of the UF
Catholic Student Fellowship.
Ratzinger named himself Pope Benedict XVI,
conjuring up the last pope named Benedict, who
worked to close the gap between traditionalists
The new pope, however, has pledged to en-
force strict conservative policies.
Ratzinger's humble side will come out during
his papacy, said the Rev. Tim Lindenfelser of the
Diocese of Saint Augustine, the organization that
presides over many Florida Catholic churches,
four of which are in Gainesville.
"There is this reputation he has of being strict '.
and domineering and that stereotypical German,
but if you meet him in person, he is very soft-
spoken and humble," he said. "He really does

Lex & Terry morning show pulled from UF
* EARLIER, UF DECIDED TO HALT THE
AIRING OF "DRUNK BITCH FRIDAY."
By DAVID COHEN
Rock 104 may be digging a grave for morn-
ings with Lex and Terry sooner than expected.
In just a few days, the entire show, not just
"Drunk Bitch Friday," the most popular morn-
ing radio segment in the Gainesville area, will be
taken off the 'air even though the segment was
not found to violate Federal Communications
Commission standards of decency.
However, Syndication Director for Cox
Radio Peter Welpton said FCC regulations
were never the problem.
On "This isn't an issue of FCC
CampuS law. This is an issue with the
president," Welpton said of UF
President Bernie Machen. "At some point,'
we are going to be forced to hold the station
in breach of contract and be forced to remove
the show from the radio station. We're talking
about a matter of days. Not just Friday's seg-
ment we are removing the show."
WRUF came in breach of its syndication
contract with Cox Radio when it stopped air-
ing "Drunk Bitch Friday" earlier this month be-
cause selective airing of shows is not allowed.
Selective cancellation of show segments also
sets a troublesome precedent of censorship, so
Cox cancelled the entire show.
Lex Staley and Terry Jaymes told the
Alligator they both disagreed with UF admin-
istration's decision to cancel the "Drunk Bitch
Friday" segment about two weeks ago.
Lex said it violates the First Amendment.

Old plan new again for 24th
* THE COUNTY COMMISSION CHANGED
ITS MIND AFTER IT DID NOT RECEIVE A
PLEDGE OF ANOTHER $1.3 MILLION.
By IVETTE MENDEZ
When Clark Butler went back on his word, so
did the Alachua County Commission.
The Commission decided Tuesday to revert to
its original plans to create a two-lane Southwest
24th Avenue running west of 34th Street.
The step was taken just days after the developer
refused to cough up $1.3 million extra to make 24th
Avenue a four-lane thoroughfare.
Butler previously committed $4.7 million to the
road's expansion, to preserve his interest in extend-
ing his Butler Plaza shopping complex north.
Representing Butler at the meeting was Robert
Reller, the company's director of development.
"On [December] 14, your commission voted to
four-lane the road," Reller said.
Butler then agreed to pay the $4.7 million differ-
ence to build the four-lane road, Reller said.
However, costs have increased to an undeter-
mined amount since then, and Butler never had a
chance to sign a formal agreement.
"Mr. Butler is not interested in paying an open-
ended agreement at $6 million or more," Reller said.
Commissioner Rodney Long felt Butler "walked
away" from the.plan.
"There was an agreement on the table that gave
you a four-lane road," Long said. "This deal could
have been done two years ago."
The commission had before them three propos-
als at the meeting from.which to choose:
In the first plan, a two-lane road would be built
from Southwest 34th Street-to Southwest 43rd'Street.
A second option before the Commission for
the same stretch of street, as presented by County
Manager Randall Reid, consisted of developing
the road with four lanes anyway. The third was to
construct a two-lane road with enough space in the
median to expand to four lanes if the money was
provided in the future.
Butler proposed the four-lane road in order to-
support future development, such as shopping cen-
ters akin to his massive Butler Plaza complex.
Reid recommended going forward with the
two-lane road unless Butler committed to paying
the difference within 30 days.
"I don't think even the primary developer wish-
es to have a delay on the project," Reid said.
Also, the four-lane right-of-way would have to
be acquired within a 60-day period to be able to
But representatives, with the county's Public
Works said the project has already hit numerous
delays in land acquisition and negotiations for a
"It's probably going to cost more as we go
through the process of condemning the property,"
County Attorney David Wagner said.
If the primary developer were to pay the differ-
ence, there could be an agreement, Reid said.
"We currently have ap-
Alachua County proved in our documents a
Commission two-lane road," he said.
But. even after Reller
presented Butler's position of not paying the $6
million, Long continued to push the idea of giving
Butler and extra 30 days to make a final decision.
"It makes sense for us not to take any action,
period,". Long said. "We need to wait."
Reller reinforced the fact that Butler would not
be swayed in his final decision.
"It's been decided," Reller said.
There is no reason to wait extra time and. let the
costs for any future road escalate, he said.
Commission Chairwoman Cynthia Chestnut
also suggested deferring any decision until" Butler
Enterprises filed impact forms outlining the com-
pany's future plans.
Chestnut said she did not see Southwest 24th
Avenue as a Top 10 priority among road rehabilita-
tion or construction projects in Gainesville.
But Commissioners Lee Pinkoson -and Paula
DeLaney saw "a final -decision for Southwest 24th
Avenue to be necessary at this meeting.
The board should not pass up the chance to con-
nect Newberry Road and Archer Road, Pinkoson
"We know that there's an existing traffic prob-
lem," he said.

Alcohol vendors push for preparation, not prohibition
By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
As UF President Bernie Machen continues to spearhead
the UF effort to curtail alcohol abuse by students, local beer
distributors are expressing a desire to have a say.
Machen's community alcohol coalition now consists of UF
faculty, administrators, students, elected officials, local law en-
forcement and health experts.
And though representatives from Budweiser said they have
spoken with the Office of Student Affairs, they have yet to see
much headway from their meeting, said Dan Burkhardt, vice
president of Burkhardt Sales & Services, the local wholesaler of
Anheuser-Busch products. .
"It's really a one-sided coalition it's not a broad spec-
trum," he said. "Here we are in the beer industry, and we have
no say in what's going on." :
Machen has attempted to discourage alcohol abuse by limit-
ing student .exposure to alcohol advertising on campus, start-
ing by banning Coors Light advertisements at the Rascal Flatts
concert in the Stephen C. O'Connell Center.
Burkhardt suggested that representatives from the alcohol
industry, as well as local establishments that sell alcohol, work
together with the coalition to promote re-
sponsible drinking habits among students.
But Vice President of the Beer Industry
of Florida Armando Sanchez-Aballi said the
industry is on track to accomplish just that.
In 2001, the Florida Alcohol and
Hospitality Coalition was created as a part-
nership between alcohol vendors to combat
Machen alcohol abuse.
Earlier this month, the coalition met with
Machen while he was in Tallahassee for Gator Day to discuss a
potential collaboration of efforts. During the meeting, the coali-
tion pledged to offer Machen support with off-campus issues
by providing resources and experience, Sanchez-Aballi said. .
"He's interested in our proposal, and I'm encouraged by his
interest," he said. "We respect and support his determination to
try and address some of the issues, and what we want to say is
that we have an equal interest as well."
Perhaps one of the easiest ways for alcohol companies to
become involved is to share methods derived from companies'
programs to promote responsible drinking. Anheuser-Busch
offers "Courage to Care" and "College Talk," programs geared
toward taking a realistic look at college drinking and methods
to deter binge drinking.
Similar programs from Coors include "BARS," "TIPS" and
"TEAMS," initiatives to curb underage alcohol consumption
and manage alcohol sales at sports facilities.
As far as the beer industry's input goes, UF spokesman
Steve Orlando said Machen is eager and willing to hear from
anybody in the community.
"I know this is a problem that's been going, on for some
time, and the president is ready to move on to more solutions,"
he said. .'

HOSTED THE EVENT.

Speaking as part of Pride Awareness
Month, two MTV reality show cast mem-
bers "dropped some knowledge" on about
70 students Tuesday regarding their expe-
riences with the auditions, the shows and
coming out to friends and family.
Karamo from "Real : World:
Philadelphia" and Sophia from "Road
Rules 10" and "Battle of the Sexes 2" gave
tips for those interested in attending the
upcoming Gainesville audition for "Real
World." Sophia explained that an open
casting call provides a better opportunity
to display oneself.
Both revealed they were asked to stay
after a group interview because there was
a supposed problem with their written
applications, at which point they were
informed they had been advanced to the
Though Sophia was happy each time
she was moved forward, she said the in-
terviews were often stressful and delved
into personal issues.

The duo also talked about more light-

"It'd be a game to try to get them to talk

Asked if she would have done anything
differently, she joked, "I think I would
have done my hair more."
Both also talked about coming out to

It might be the middle of the week, but it sure feels like
Friday to us.
The regular Opinions staff is taking the day off to do "ex-
ams," "term papers," and all of that other stuff we keep hear-
ing so much about, so the Department of Darts & Laurels is
stepping in to take care of business.
Because we're so happy to have advanced even further
toward our ultimate goal of achieving a solid education (read:
because we're so freakin' happy to be getting out of this place),
we've decided to make good on a promise that we've dangled
in front of our readers all semester.
That's right: It's finally time for the ever-elusive all-Laurel
edition of Darts & Laurels.
Can you feel the love?
Yeah, we know you can.
So toss those textbooks into the bonfire, change into your
swimsuits and have a cold one on us as we head on into this
final edition of...
Darts & Laurels
To start things off by mending a bridge that we pretty
much burned to ashes before, we offer a now-no-more-funny-
business-you-crazy-backdoor-dealers-you LAUREL to Joe
Goldberg and the Gator Party for somehow, against all odds,
not destroying the very fabric of UF society as we know it.
We know they haven't had time to do much, but we're
impressed with their restraint so far. We expected, oh, we
don't know... maybe to see the executives riding fiery chariots
of death led by packs of multicultural society members or
Keep up the non-fascist work, guys.
Because we're always happy when The Man throws us a
bone, we extend a thank-goodness-that-the-administration-
LAUREL to UF President Bernie Machen for not shutting
down alcohol sales at the Orange & Brew in the Reitz Union.
While we don't believe he wants a dry campus, it's still
pretty surprising that any time we want we can bowl a few
frames in the game room, walk over to the Brew and get our
drink on through the magic of Declining Balance.
Not that the university encourages such things.
In response to the complaints that we spent too much time
this semester covering the Student Government elections,
we're going to come right back and give a you-may-be-a-
woman)-enough-to-stop-pretending-it's-a-secret LAUREL to
the Gator Party for giving out M&M candies with the mes-
sage "Leave a Legacy" written on them.
Because this is the Gator Party, however, this means legacy
in the sense of "Somebody call the janitor they left legacy all
over my clean floor and it's stinking the place up."
While their little joke may be in poor taste, it took a lot of
balls to go through with it.
And, because we think we've done such a fine job today
and all semester, we finish things off with a look-guys-we-
to the Department of Darts & Laurels for finally quitting our
Dart habit cold-turkey.
It was tough, but we think we can now look forward to a
fuller, happier, less-inherently-depressing life that is free'from
Now where did we put our Gator 1 cards? We've got a little
end-of-the-semester "bowling" to do over at the Reitz.

Finally, time for some positive thinking
o, I have the pleasure of writing the last column of
the semester. I thought I'd so something you don't
see much of on these pages: I'm going to try to be.
I want to start by thanking the janitors. Throughout
this year, there have been times in which I've been amazed
at the accumulation of nastiness in the dorm where I live.
A day or two later, I'm always amazed that it's gone. My
sincerest appreciation goes to you, UF's custodial staff,
who have prevented so many accidents and illnesses.
Stepping back, here's to everyone who ensures that
college life goes smoothly, so that we students can study:
the maintenance people, the techies, the secretaries, the li-
brarians, the food-service employees, the bus driversi-and
everyone else who leaves us one less worry or distraction.
A special "hats off" to student employees, who somehow
manage to handle, both.
A toast to Gainesville's businesses, who look for inno-
vative ways to satisfy students' demands, and to our local
government they're not so bad after all.
Cheers to the professors, but especially to the associate
professors, adjunct professors, lecturers, instructors, TAs,
and so forth. To you falls the quixotic task of convincing
students of the importance of one-inch margins, and you
do it admirably. Also, you teach us things. That can't be
Thanks also to the local charities and non-profits who
work to-engage students in the world around them, and
the houses of faith who work to engage students in the

Celebrate Earth Day by calling for UF dining facility reform
T his Friday is Earth Day,
which is a time in which we
examine our impact on the
planet and make personal resolu-
tions to make the environment
cleaner and improve the treatment
of animals. Some of us vow to be
more consistent recyclers, oth-
ers pledge to plant trees in their
neighborhoods. What many of us
have yet to discover is that one of
the most important actions we can
take for the planet has to do with
our food choices.
Most animals raised for food
are forced to live in massive in-
dustrial warehouses. These animal
factories are leading polluters of
our rivers, lakes and streams. The
Environmental Protection Agency
reports that hog, chicken and
cattle waste has polluted 35,000
miles of rivers in 22 states and
contaminated groundwater in 17-
states. In fact, 2.7 trillion pounds of
manure are generated by livestock
operations each year. This huge
amount of waste is often concen-
trated around each farm, causing
nearby residents to suffer from the
nauseating stench emanating from
the air and waterways.
Animals are by far the biggest
losers in the growing epidemic of
industrial farms. Most egg-laying
hens are restricted to overcrowded
cages too tiny for them to spread
their wings. They're often starved
for up to two weeks to shock their
bodies into another egg-laying

are selectively bred and given

process takes only 45 days, nearly
twice as fast as it did in the 1950s.
Forced rapid growth is responsible
for an immense amount of suffer-

painful leg disorders. These chick-

Pigs are also intensively con-

Right here at UF, students can
help animals raised for food by
urging dining services not only to
offer more vegetarian meals, but to
stop purchasing the most abusive
Though this might seem daunt-
ing, UF will not be alone in this ef-
fort. With the help of The Humane
Society of the; United States,
students are .working to reform
.their dining facilities at more than
80 universities, including Yale,
Arizona State and Cornell. And,
their efforts are already succeeding:
Just this month, students at George
Washington University persuaded
their school store to stop carrying
eggs from caged birds. UF should
and can be the next university to
make this far-reaching commit-
ment to help laying hens.
Such reforms at university din-
ing facilities would go a long way
toward phasing out the most egre-
gious practices of abuse in animal
agribusiness. It's hard to imagine a
better way to celebrate Earth Day.

Japan's acts insult Americans, Chinese
I read Jason Levitt's Wednesday column
concerning relations between China and
Japan and want to express my full support.
He did a good job of educating us as to why
the Chinese are angry about Japan's bid for a
permanent seat on the U.N. Security Council.
There's one thing I want to add: Another
reason for the anger among the Chinese is that,
almost every year since 1985, Japanese prime
ministers visit the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo.'
Seventeen war criminals including Admiral
Isoroku Yamamoto, chief commander of the
sneak attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 are
honored in that shrine. Can you imagine if
Adolf Hitler, Herman Goring and Heinrich
Himmler were enshrined in a German temple,
and if German chancellors showed official re-
spect to that temple every year?
Current Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro
Koizumi conducted the last visit to the
shrine in 2004. This was an insult to the 2,403
American soldiers killed in Pearl Harbor; an
insult to the more than 10 million Chinese
killed by Japanese troops during World War
II; an insult to my grandfather, a World War
II veteran; and an insult to my uncle, who was
killed by Japanese bombs at the age of one.

Vote M.O.B. for student cheering section
Editor: After all the whining this semester
about UF not allowing any student voice in
decision making, students finally will get a
say: It's up to current students to name the
student section in the Swamp. Of the five
remaining choices, The M.O.B., the Mighty
Orange and Blue, clearly is the best option.
Some have suggested that The M.O.B.
sounds violent and angry. For anyone who has
had the opportunity to sit in the enthusiastic,
sweaty student section on. a steamy Saturday
afternoon, it's not' about, violence. It's about
the sheer number of passionate students who
battffle 100-degree temperatures while packed
in like sardines. It's about sporting Gators
gear from head-to-toe, screaming until you're
hoarse, standing up during the whole game
and going nuts after every Gators touchdown.
That sounds like a M.O.B. to me.
The Swamp's reputation as the toughest
place for visiting teams to win has faded in
recent years. What better way to bring back
Gators football dominance than with a new
name to spell out how rambunctious the
Gainesville reptiles are? Just picture the ESPN
Game Day guys broadcasting live from the
Swamp, telling the nation about The M.O.B.
and how the Gators are the rowdiest, most
hyped-fans in college football. We Gators al-
ready know that but, as The M.O.B., we'll be
ushering in a whole new era of Gator football.

Florida Blue Key elects non-Greeks in rare move
* THE GREEK-CONNECTED
PRESIDENT WAS RE-ELECTED.
By BRIDGET CAREY
Alligator Staff Writer
.Three non-Greek executive offi-
cers have been elected to run Florida
Blue Key for what some say may be
the first time in UF history.
FBK, a leadership honorary that
runs Gator Growl and Homecoming,
inducted the recently elected inde-
pendent vice president, secretary
and treasurer this weekend to serve
for the Fall 2005 semester a move
that is catching attention from critics
who perceived the organization as
exclusive to the Greek and Student
"It shows everyone that our. orga-
nization has made significant chang-
es in the last decade or so and it has
been more inclusive," FBK President
Brian Roof said. "And we aren't look-
ing for a certain type of person. What
we're looking for are leaders."
In a 1998 case in which FBK was
found liable of conspiracy to defame-
and defamation, former Student
Body presidential candidate Charles
Grapski proved the organization
was a political machine working
within the Greek-backed SG system.
It is not uncommon for a non-
Greek student to hold an FBK office
or other high-ranking position. But
Roof said since he became a mem-
ber in 1999, he has not heard of three
non-Greeks being elected at once,
adding that it could be the first time
in FBK history of non-Greek leader-
ship taking the reigns.
The new officials are Vice
President Chris Carmody, Secretary
Cecily McLeod and Treasurer
Roof is a Greek alumnus and a
UF law student, but his re-election
was noteworthy as well, since it is
extremely rare, he said.
"I think it shows members are
looking to see (Florida) Blue Key
continue to change and to be open
and diverse," Roof said.
There are numerous ways to
become involved with FBK, Roof
said, but the biggest ways to partici-
pate are through Homecoming and
Gator Growl. Applications for the
two events are still being accepted
and can be picked up in the Reitz
Union FBK office.
IFAS helps create searchable database for pesticides
* THE SYSTEM INCLUDES DIREC-
TIONS FOR HANDLERS TO FOLLOW.
By SKYLER SMITH
The UF Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences has partnered with a California com-
pany to update information on pesticides.
Crop Data Management Systems Inc.
of Marysville, Calif., has put together
ChemSearch, a searchable database for more
than 1,600 pesticide products. It also gives
instructions on how to use the chemicals and
precautions workers should take.
Norm Leppla, director of IFAS' Integrated
Pest Management division, and his colleague,
Daniel Sonke, associate director of IPM,
formed the business partnership, Leppla said.
"We're the first one to put together any
large-scale test," Leppla said.
The system operates through UF extension
faculty who work with the state's growers and
ranchers to help clients pinpoint
Student the best pesticides and herbicides
Life for their products.
In return, CDMS gets feed-
back from these growers and faculty on what
works and what information is missing.
"The purpose of this is to get a large-scale
test of the project and feed back to the company
what we want them to do," Leppla explained.
This testing will soon be over for Florida,
but UF is pioneering ChemSearch's reach into
the southern IPM region.
This region extends from New Mexico to
North Carolina and includes 13 states.
Leppla's job will be to coordinate with the
12 other states' IPM directors in providing the
ChemSearch services to their regions.
Leppla said he hopes to see the system
broadened to include urban and building uses.
We are looking for healthy males and females
between the ages of 18-50 to participate in a

Group evades police eye as it hands out illegal Plan B
By JESSICA RIFFEL
Alligator Contributing Writer
Members of the Gainesville
Women's Liberation community-
education class illegally passed out
the emergency contraceptive Plan-B
to 14 people on the southwest comer
of University Avenue and Southwest
13th Street on Tuesday at noon.
The eight members organized
the morning-after pill handout to
make people aware
Student of the pill and to
ActiviSm protest its prescrip-
"Over 70 medical groups say it's
safe for use and in over 30 countries
you can walk in and get it, but here
you have to jump-through so many
hoops," class instructor Stephanie
Standing under a large "Feminist
Pharmacy" sign, five members
spoke about why the Food and
Drug Administration should ap-
prove the morning-after pill as over-
"We feel the FDA is keeping a
,perfectly safe pill from women's
reach," student Claire Beach said.
Beach discussed in a speech her
experience trying to get a morning-
after pill after a condom broke dur-
ing sex. After a nurse at the Student
Health Care Center questioned and
lectured her, she was given a pre-
scription to get the pill.
"I felt like a slut when they asked
me 'How long has it been since you
had unprotected sex?' And I don't
think it was fair that they pressured
me to take an STD test," Beach said.
The speakers all advocated the
pill become available over the coun-
ter since easy access is necessary for
a medication that is most effective
within 24 hours after sex.
"This is a free country, and ev-
ery woman should be able to get
the morning-after pill," UF student
Jennifer Mallek said after receiv-
ing the pill. "I think it's a law that
should be broken."
Several University Police officers
monitored the demonstration from a
distance, and two circled the perim-
eter on bicycle.
"We were there to protect their
right to speak. Were we to witness
any illegal activity, we could take
any action, if needed," said UPD
spokesman Lt. Joe Sharkey.
The officers did not arrest anyone
at the demonstration.
"The officers that we had on hand
did not witness the distribution that
allegedly went on;" Sharkey said.
Sharkey said University Police
have the option to review a videotape
from WCJB TV20, which recorded
the speeches and distribution of the
pill. Sharkey said they can work with
the State Attorney's Office and file
charges against any individuals seen
violating the law on the tape.

'Academic Freedom' bill cleared for House floor
By JAMES VANLANDINGHAM
Alligator Staff Writer
TALLAHASSEE The Academic
Freedom Bill of Rights passed the House
Education Council on Tuesday, clearing the
way for the controversial legislation to appear
on the House floor for an official vote.
Sponsored by Rep. Dennis Baxley, the bill
was approved 6-4. But Rep. Larry Cretul,
Baxley's fellow Republican from Ocala, broke
party ranks to speak out against the plan.
"This bill is unnecessary legislation,"
Cretul said. "As legislators, we have more
than enough serious problems to address. The
Legislature meets for only 60 days. We have to
prioritize. This is just not a priority."
While proponents cited alleged cases of in-
timidation by professors against conservative
students, Cretul said anecdotes do not warrant
an expansive new bill by the Legislature.
"Are there occasional mistakes made by
faculty?" he asked. "Sure. But I'm also sure
there are mistakes made by faculty of all po-
litical persuasions. That's why our state's na-
tionally renowned universities have policies in
place to deal with these mistakes."
Despite Cretul's opposition, six Republicans,
still voted for the bill, enough to pass the com-
But while the bill advances in the House,
an identical bill in the Senate appears to have
stalled. With only one week of committee
hearings left, the bill has failed to appear on
the agenda of either of its two committees.
Sen. Stephen Wise, R-Jacksonville, said
Tuesday that the Senate didn't appear to be
receptive to the bill. Senate President Tom Lee
and even Gov. Jeb Bush previously have gone
on record que'- hton tlhe bill's necessity.
Baxley and Rep. David Mealor, R-Lake
Mary, will speak to a meeting of the State
in _-ar>rh o!t a minitnllet tronm pit:-Id 2ntl to
becter i e\f'-ngajt -t.udcnot mplainpit -. r gr.de
bias and public humiliation in class.
Wise said he may also attend and would be
satisfied if the presidents gave assurances that
student complaints would be addressed.
Nevertheless, debate at the House hearing
Rep. John Stargel, R-Lakeland, said he once
received a C in an FSU Law School class that
he believed was retaliation against conserva-
tive political views he espoused in class.
"We need to make sure that if a student
believes .they've been the victim of political
retaliation that they can appeal and get a fair
hearing," he said.
Rep. David Rivera, R-Miami, said while he
was uneasy with some aspects of the bill, he
believed it addressed an important issue.
But Rep. Loranne Ausley, D-Tallahassee,
said universities already have policies for re-
dress of student grievances.
P PAll universities have an
ombudsman whose job is
to investigate and resolve
complaints, she said..
"I'm wondering what
kind of world we're in,"
,tu-Vi,, said. "Republicans
Baxley say they're for less govern-
ment, lower taxes and more
freedom. This bill would expand government
power to regulate what professors can say,
would require us to pay for new.lawyers at ev-
ery university and community college, and it
certainly doesn't expand academic freedom."
Baxley had the last word at the hearing.
"Some professors say, 'I don't give A's to
Republicans,'" he said. "You're wrong, you're
naive, if you think it doesn't happen. Yes we're
interfering, and yes I'm shaking their cage,
and we're intervening. We intervene when
people are abused."
Baxley even said he'd received a letter from
a UF senior thanking him for sponsoring the
bill because she had felt oppressed in an un-
named UF liberal arts class.
"She wrote, 'I could not speak up against
any of his lies, either for fear of retaliation in the
gradebook or humiliation in class,'" he said.
Baxley would not name the student because
he feared she would be acted against at UP.
Faculty and student groups have hotly
contested the bill, which legislative staff law-
yers have warned could allow students who
feel offended in class to sue their professors or
United Faculty of Florida President Tom
Auxter, who also is a UF philosophy profes-
sor, said the evidence for passing the expan-
sive bill affecting the whole State University
System was "underwhelming."
"All we've heard is a handful of anec-
dotes," he said. "I'm sure abuses do happen,
they occur at any institution. But there's no
evidence to suggest they're widespread, and
policies to address student grievances already
In an interview after-the hearing, Auxter
said that even if the bill failed to pass the
House, damage to Florida's universities has
already been done.

Neither Domenech nor his supporters losing the At-Large race to incumbent Donovan's youngest supporters were election and waved signs.
Neither Domenech nor his supporters
were present at the announcement, and
none could be reached for comment.
Voter turnout averaged 13.78 percent of i
registered voters, totaling 2,618 votes, up
slightly from the March 29 election that
did not yield a winner for District 3.
In the two voting precincts dominated
by students, 44 and 54, only 169 votes
were cast. These precincts had the smallest
voter turnout, only 1.25 and 2.37 percent
respectively, with both giving the victory
to Domenech. .....
The race was expected to be close.. ..
By noon, the Elections Office had re-
leased the names of registered voters who
had not yet voted. Donovan spent the af- _-

Helen Strain, his political strate-

Despite advanced age, pope instills hope
POPE, from page 1
Ratzinger but knows many people who have.
Instead of electing a young, more modem
pope, cardinals chose 78-year-old Ratzinger to
be a "transitional" pope. He is the oldest pope
elected since 1730.
"Just because they don't want a long papacy
doesn't mean they don't want an active pa-
pacy," Lindenfelser said.
He referred to Pope John XXIII, who was
elected at age 77 in 1958 and went on to revo-
lutionize the church by opening up a dialogue
Bobby "Angel, who coordinates the UF
Catholic group with Lataif, said the organiza-
tion wasn't focusing on Ratzinger's age.
"We have a pope, and we're ready to rock
and roll," he said, adding, "It's great to know
we have a shepherd."
There was "definitely something missing"
in the interim period between popes, he said.
Lataif said the new pope obviously would
not be around as long as John Paul II, but he
seems healthy enough to take on the role.
"If this is what God wants for now, we
should support that," he said.

Students foot $5,700 bill for awards, balloons, candy
By NEIL HUGHES
UF students shelled out more
than $5,700 of their tuition money
toward a Student Government ban-
quet Saturday night.
The banquet incurred almost
$14,000 in charges, partly paid
through the student-funded
Activity & Service Fee, admissions
fees and other means, SG finance
reports show. Nearly $600 and $400
were spent on balloons and M&Ms
Plaques and awards for SG of-
ficials encompassed the largest
expense for the night totaling ap-
proximately $5,400, reports state.
But organizations funded through
SG are never allowed to hold ban-
quets and are rarely allowed to pur-
chase plaques with student fees, said
former Student Senate budget com-
mittee member MacKenzie Moritz.
"I don't think it's really fair for
Student Government to spend more
on itself than it allows SG-funded
organizations to spend on them-
selves," said Moritz, former Progress
Party presidential candidate.

administration," he added, noting
that he was not yet familiar with the
The report also listed $580 spent
on balloons, a number that used
to be much higher, Student Body
Treasurer Dennis Ngin said.
. "I did what I could to reduce the
costs as much as I could," Ngin said,
adding that the balloons once cost
about $1,000. "I do think it was a lot
of money to spend on a banquet."
He noted that the banquets
have a historical .tradition attached.
Saturday's was the 88th annual
SG is not required to follow the
rules of the 800 finance codes, al-
lowing them to fund events such as
banquets with student money.
"There's kind of a double-stan-
dard for what Student Government
itself can do and what it allows stu-
dent organizations under it to do,"
Additionally, Finance Code
808.13 states that A&S fees cannot be
spent on "awards, recognition keys,
etc." unless approved by the budget
Moritz said that the budget com-
mittee never approved the purchase
of awards for student organization
members simply for completing
their term in office, as was done
Saturday for SG officials.
"We never spent more than $25
on an [individual] award," he said
Saturday, cabinet members re-
ceived engraved wooden cases with
two pens, a golden gator pin and a
business card holder, all for complet-
ing their terms, said Senate technol-
ogy cabinet member Adam Roberts,
also a former Progress candidate.
Officials also spent more than
$375 on custom-printed orange
and blue M&Ms emblazoned with
the letters "SG" on one side, and
the banquet's theme, "LEAVE A
LEGACY," on the other.
These expenses come three years
after SG spent $500 of student tu-
ition-funded A&S fees on chocolate
alligators, an event that Roberts
cited upon hearing of the expenses.
"I was under the impression that
that was the reason we were paying
the $15 this time," Roberts said, re-
ferring to the $15 admission fee.

Rabbit-violence site stirs dispute
* "BRYAN" WANTS $50K- OR TOBY GETS IT.
By KYLIE CRAIG
While many UF students worry about final exams, two
college students elsewhere have been spending their time
warding off death threats, fighting legal battles, and best of
all, collecting nearly $25,000 in the process.
These events stemmed from SaveToby.com, a Web site
the students created in efforts to save the life of their pet
However, Toby's life isn't in any real danger.
The two students, who are choosing to remain anony-
mous, state on their Web site, "Toby is the cutest little
bunny on the planet. Unfortunately, he will DIE on June
30th, 2005 if you don't help."
What help are they asking? Donations totaling $50,000.
The owner found the rabbit under his porch and claims
he is "truly remarkable" and "a fighter."
"To give Toby the life we feel he really deserves, after tal-
lying up all the plans we have for him, we feel $50,000 is a
little on the low end," said the owner, who goes by "Bryan."
Bryan said he hopes money is raised so Toby, whom he
considers more of a companion than a friend, will live.
"We really, in the grand scheme of things, would like to
take Toby on some travels and let him see the world."
If the money isn't received by June 30, Toby's owners
claim they will take him to a butcher, where he will be
slaughtered, then prepare him for what they call a "mid-
Many people and organizations strongly disagree.
Sue Brennan, the founder of Rabbit Haven, a nonprofit
organization dedicated to rescuing abandoned and mis-.
treated rabbits, is one of them.
"We currently shelter over 100 rabbits.
On They are well-cared for," Brennan said.
Campus "$50,000 for one rabbit is just incredulous. I
think it's ridiculous."
Her organization is opposed to the idea on the general
principle that it's emotional extortion, she said.
Toby's owners don't seem too concerned with the ac-
cusations and have even posted personal responses to hate
letters on their Web site.
"All the death threats are equally tied in terms of the
worst," Bryan said, adding that hundreds of letters have
recently come through.
UF-junior James Bailey said he was surprised that close
to $25,000 has already been donated.
"Who the hell would give them money?" Bailey said. "I
don't want the rabbit to die, but I'm not going to give them

Classes to be held on reading day cause controversy

For a few UF students, -72 days of class
may not be enough this Spring.
Some will return for one more day,

Some may not be aware of the rule, said
UF sophomore Adam Langston.

have classes or hold votes because some
students may feel pressured, he said
"I don't think they should have any con-
trol over it," Langston said. "They should
have. no say if there's class or not 'cause
that's university policy."
If students have an objection, they should
go to the ombudsman's office, Howard said.

Second hunt for next provost drags on
Costs of searching
continue to mount
By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
UF students will have a new person to
direct their academic careers in the Fall,
but the search for UF's next chief academic
officer the provost will likely cost the
UF's administration has invested sev-
eral months and thousands of dollars into
finding the right person.
"It's important that we get somebody
who has a clear vision," Interim Provost
Joe Glover said. "It's extremely important
that we get someone who has the savvy to
manage large business operation."
The position opened in February 2004
when then-Provost David Colbum an-
nounced he would step down, partially
to give UF President Bernie Machen the
chance to bring in his own person for the
The search has taken about six months
since the committee formed in October.
The first search, which failed, cost $73,859,
and so far the second has racked up
$26,333, UF spokesman Steve Orlando
wrote in an e-mail. The second search is
likely to add up to about $75,000:
The final, public stages of the search
will go on this Summer, when many fac-
ulty and students will not be watching.
But with the meager results of the first
candidate pool, UF officials have said it
was the best option.
The search committee will review-a
preliminary list of about a dozen candi-
dates on May 9 and 10.
At those meetings, it will
cut that number down
to about six prospects,
who will then visit cam-
meet with Machen, faculty representatives
and other UF stakeholders.
Not having a provost has not been a
hindrance to UF thus far because the po-
sition is only.one of a team of top-notch
administrators, Glover said.
But several open positions will not
be filled until the provost takes office.
The Colleges of Health and Human
Performance and Fine Arts are holding off
on searches for their deans, and UF will
not choose a director of admissions until
the provost has a say, Glover said.
"This is part of a normal evolution of a
university," he said. "The university contin-
ues to move forward in a variety of ways."
Pierre Ramond, chairman of the Faculty
Senate, said not having a provost hasn't
hampered UF's strategy to become a Top
10 public research university, but it may if
the position hasn't been filled by Fall.
"I think the faculty would have wished
that a provost be in place six months ago,"
But administrative searches can be diffi-
cult in Florida, where meetings of any two
or more members of the search committee
must be public. The firm Machen hired for
the second search reminded the committee
of candidates' hesitance to come forward
several times at their first meeting.
Applicants might feel awkward about
their home institution knowing that
they're looking for another job, Ramond
said. Additionally, the administrative
structure at UF in which the provost is
one of three top vice presidents to report
directly to the president may seem un-
usual to prospective provosts, he said.
He has not come across many issues
that were waiting for a permanent pro-
vost, but Machen's team is not in place
until a provost is picked, Ramond said.
"The most interesting thing about.
being provost is in the sense that you're
setting up the academic direction of the
university," he said. "The pieces are not
in place yet."

Radio hosts decry UF administration's 'hypocrisy' concerning alcohol policy
LEX & TERRY, from page 1
"Nobody is doing anything against their
will," he said. "This is done by a college that
has a school of journalism? What are you
teaching these kids?".
UF spokesman Steve Orlando sees the situ-
"If you're talking about underage alcohol
consumption, that is something we cannot
tolerate," he said. "Certainly, I don't think the
framers of the Constitution had 'Drunk Bitch
Friday' in mind when they wrote that."
Both hosts said they were upset about the
action taken by UF administration.
"It makes me feel sad," Lex said. "I have
a past in Gainesville. I went to Santa Fe
(Community College) for a while. It's a great
station, and it always has been. This is a dark
day in the history of the network."
"I think that if you lined up all 40 of our
stations that would cancel 'Drunk Bitch
Friday,' Rock 104 would be the last one on the
list," Terry said. "I am just going to follow the
president around for a year and make sure he
doesn't have a cocktail."
Welpton said the cancellation was not a
consequence-free one for the university.
"[UF] just signed a three-year deal six
months ago, and this will cost the station a lot
of money," Welpton said.
Welpton would not say how much money
will come out of UF's pocketbook for breaking
the contract. He added that the syndication of
"The Lex & Terry Morning Show" helps pay
for the salaries of WRUF staff members.
Orlando said the university is prepared to
suffer monetary losses for the decision.
"If they choose to cancel the entire program,
then that is their decision," he said. "[Machen
,and College of Journalism Dean Terry Hynes]
spoke with each other when they made this
decision, and I think they understood the
potential consequences. A monetary price
compared with the life of a student there's
just no comparison."
Larry Dankner, general manager for WRUF,
said he thought the station had more time be-
fore a decision was made about the show.
"They have been trying to work with us,"
he said. "I thought that we had a couple more
Friday to work with."
* Lex said he feels the decision to cancel the
show was more personal than well-informed.
"While I understand what it must be like to
be the president of a university, I don't think
there has been adequate fact-finding," Lex said.
"That pretty much tells me that this is of a po-
litical nature. I really don't think that the show's
content offends anybody but one person."
Terry echoed his co-host.
"I can't wait for [UF] to stop the world's
largest cocktail party," he said of- the an-
nual bash at Jacksonville Landing for the UF-
Georgia football game. "I've got my sights set
on that. If that doesn't relay the hypocrisy of
all this, I don't know what does."
"I don't think a radio show has
an impact on whether somebody
drinks or not."
radio talk show host
Relatedly, a UF student fell to his death
from a parking garage at the event last year,
allegedly due to alcohol-related reasons.
Neither considered the show indecent.
"I don't think that we can stand on a soap-
box and say that the show is a public service,"
Terry said. "It's up to the person to decide. We
give people more credit for being smart."
Both Terry and Lex said listeners can make
their own decisions about how to behave.
I "I think this is pretty over the top," Lex
said. "Not everybody is a moron."
Terry noted that numerous women apply
to be on their show.
"The facts are we have over 2,500 women
that apply to be a drunk bitch," he said.
"Ninety-five percent of them we cut off by 9
a.m. They've had an equivalent, at that time,
of about three to four drinks."
Terry said he does not want to see the show
leave UF, but said he might cancel "Drunk
Bitch Friday" to make a statement. They en-
couraged outraged listeners to take the mic
and speak up.
"I would tell them to do what suits them
best," Lex said. "If it means anything to them
to show the outrage of this, they should con-
tact [the administration]. That seems to be
what gets people's attention."
"If they are going on sheer volume," Terry
said, "there are a hell of a lot more people who
would love to hear it."
Orlando said that UF is in charge of the ra-
dio station that makes its home on campus.
"The station is part of the university. What
the station chooses to air reflects the values of
the university and its leadership."
Orlando called the actions on the show
Lex and Terry disagree.
"I don't think a radio show has an impact on
whether somebody drinks or not," Lex said.
Terry, who said he doesn't usually drink,
offered the bright side of what listeners can do
when the show is canceled.
"The good news is it kind of frees up every-
body's time to have sex," he said.

Star joins Gators
The UF baseball team and
Coach Pat McMahon recently
announced that outfielder Chris
Petrie, from Jacksonville, has
signed a national letter of intent.
"We are extremely excited
that Chris has

April 16, Petrie ranked third for
Lake City Community College
with a .375 batting average and
paced -his squad in total bases
(124), runs- (46) and doubles (20).
He has belted seven home runs
and'tallied 36 RBI, statistics that
place him second and third on
the team, respectively. In addition,
Petrie leads the Timberwolves
with a .402 clip in conference play
and has totaled nine doubles.
Petrie started all 51 games last
season for head coach Tom Clark
and batted .386 with 40 RBI and
five homers. On the mound, the
southpaw was 2-1 with a 4.11
earned run average and totaled
11 strikeouts. Petrie was a first-
team all-conference selection and
achieved second-team all-state
status. He was selected by the
Minnesota Twins in the 47th round
of the 2004 Major League Baseball
"Chris is an outstanding athlete
who can play any of the outfield
positions for us," assistant. coach
Tim Parenton said. "We are look-
ing forward to having him arrive

Petrie was a four-year let-
terman and three-yeaf starter
for head coaches Storm Davis
and John Newman at the
Bolles School in Jacksonville.
He helped the. Bulldogs to the
3A State Championship during
his junior year in 2002, when
he hit .376 with 35 RBI and six
homers as his club finished 30-4
In addition, Petrie was a pitcher
and outfielder for the 1998 AAU
national champions for head coach
Chet Lemon and was a member of
the 2000 AAU national runner-up
squad coached by Mike Jones. He
was also selected to the 2000 AAU
"It is an honor to become part
of the Gator baseball program,"
Petrie said. "I look forward to
working with the coaching staff
and having -the opportunity to
contribute to the team."
In addition to Petrie, Florida
has already signed 11 other stu-
dent-athletes to a national letter
of intent. This group includes
Michael Allen, Avery Barnes,

"That's the game of baseball,
sometimes things go your way,
sometimes they don't," Davis

pitching in challenging spots.
He definitely had his good stuff

and they capitalized on their
UF coach Pat McMahon
tipped his cap to the opposition,
noting the strong performance
of his freshman pitcher.
"We were hitting behind in
the count a lot over the course
of the night," McMahon said.
"I thought Henry pitched really
well and Florida State defended
the field very well. We're very
proud of Tommy Wynn's per-
formance. As a freshman, I
thought he really competed."
Eight of the nine UF batters
had at least one hit, with right
fielder Brian Leclerc coming up
0-for-4. Leclerc lined out to first
'base with the bases loaded on a
play that might have swung the
game in favor of the Gators.
"We hit the ball really hard;
it's a game of inches," McMahon
said. "Our goal is not to out-hit
people, our goal is to out-score.
To score is to be productive.

First baseman Matt LaPorta collected one of UF's nine hits
against Florida State. The Gators fall to 27-10 for the season.
It was a well-played game by
both teams. It was a fun game

neat plays within plays of the

double to the first batter he

really well out of the bullpen for
us this season," McMahon said.
"They out two good swings on

"With that part of the lineup,
what we wanted to do after the
leadoff hitter, we wanted to try
to pitch Pete through the fifth
place in the batting order. As the
game unfolded late, hopefully
we could have tied it up. It's a
neat chess match at that point."

UF prepares for SEC Tournament
* GATORS LOOK TO NAB 13TH
WIN OF 14 MATCHES.
By NATASHA WEINSTEIN
The No. 5 UF men's tennis team
heads to Georgia today in an opti-
For a regular season that began
plagued with uncertainty after the loss
of one of the Gators' best players, they
enter the postseason co-Southeastern
Conference champions and ranked-
highest since Feb. 18. Not only are they
confident, but they are eager and excit-
ed to play teams in a league they have
dominated during past months.
UF plays its first match Friday
against the Kentucky-Vanderbilt
winner. Both teams fell to the Gators
in their first meetings. The Gators are
one of four teams to make their tour-
Chris Brandi and the fifth-ranked Gators are headed to Athens, Ga., the
site of the Southeastern Conference Tournament. UF has one 12 of its last
nament debut in the quarterfinals
after receiving a first-round bye.
With their lone SEC loss coming
to No 3. Mississippi, the team that
shared the SEC championship title
with UF, the Gators are not so quick
to disregard the slew of top-25 oppo-
nents they will face.
"We're going to have to be sharp,
we're going to have to have energy
and we'll have to play well or we
will lose," Coach Andy Jackson said.
"There are too many good teams to
think that you can play any match at
a normal level or below normal level
and expect to advance."
The SEC tournament is regarded
as one of the top events leading up
to the NCAA Championship in May.
The semifinals are slated for Saturday
and the championship round will be
played on Sunday.
While the Gators might be play-
"We're going to have to be
sharp, we're going to have to
have energy and we'll have to
play well or we will lose."
UF men's tennis coach
ing some, of the year's best tennis,
Jackson said the team could always
perfect their game, especially when
it comes to doubles.
Overall, the Gators finished 10-1
in the league, but only 6-5 in doubles.
Jackson said he plans on adjusting
the lineup throughout the tourna-
ment until he finds something that
"Obviously we need to keep try-
ing things until we come up with
something that allows us to be more
successful in doubles," he said. "We
should be better and we're going to
work to prove that."
After the tournament, the Gators
will take a week off to finish up with
finals and rest-before returning to the
courts in preparation for the NCAA
Regionals, beginning May 14.
